Let The Free-Agency Begin!!!

"Live from the Investors Bank Studio Buro Sizing Greg Jian Audie boomer and Geo on the fan simulcast across the country on. CBS Sports Network The Wednesday morning. We're getting closer to a football game. That could really really send the New York jets even deeper for. Yes you thought. The Rock bottom was possible after the dolphins game that was it. NOPE it can get even deeper than that if they end up getting embarrassed by the giants giants and metlife stadium. That apparently has three hundred feral cats living in it. And you got major league. Baseball free agency opening up its early. Yes official official now like you can do whatever you want. But as we've seen in years past it takes months and months and months and months the sign the big name. Free agents guys guys like Anthony ran down guys like Stephen Strasburg and yes guys like Garrett Cole and you've got to interesting things three interesting things happen in yesterday. Ashtray one astros teammates reportedly Garrett Cole saying they think he's going to southern California. You Got Merano and Scott Boris. There's two guys that don't necessarily get along with the angels. And then you've got see Sobat via saying to Garrett Cole spending a bunch of time on the phone saying hey I'm I am a California guy and then I went to New York with the Yankees and look at my career aware that ends up is going to be the big chip that falls and free eight Z. We'll Garrett Colby be a Yankee and right now I got no clue good morning boomer our jail I I would just say this about Garrett Cole is that In regards to the angels we happen talking about this. The angels have had had an awful awful off season already as soon as their season ended the. Da was in their clubhouse. Talking to guys is like Matt Harvey and the Pr Guy. There that went out and got the drugs for about four or five players on this team. And it's a mess out there. And I think they're starting to rebuild that mess was started with Joe Madden and I think now it's going to continue with Garrett Cole I would think I would think already. Marina would pay the most money the longest the longest contract That they possibly can Garrett Cole because he's trying to change the story around that team and the only way you do that is by bringing in big personalities and great players. Soon you may remember. You Got Mike Trout sitting out there and you know they they they just like they have not found their ways and then when this whole drug thing broke on them the best way to get out of it I think is to try to get as far away from from it as you possibly can and you do that by distracting everybody and bring in guys like Joe Madden and Mickey callaway and then of course if you got Garrett Cole to go along with them and be a great offseason but yeah I mean this. This is a distraction with very long term consequences. Though I mean this is not something that press conference is going to wipe away and then that's it. I mean you're we're GonNa Have Garrett Cole there for two hundred fifty million dollars for the better part of a decade if not more right yeah so I mean. I know that the Astros seemed to be a team. That's ruled out at this. His point by the way the Garrett Cole acted after the World Series with Scott Boras hat as opposed to Houston Astros hat. They said that. Maybe you're one of the era beat reporters that maybe go over the luxury tax in order to sign Garrett Cole but that seems unlikely to me what it's GonNa come down to his. He's a Boris Guy. Scott Boras weights this thing out to get the best offer. He's got the Boris Hat on ten minutes. After it gets eliminated from the world series. Says I'm not an employee of the team. He is going to go to the team that pays him the most that to me. He is the only thing that makes sense right now. And either the Yankees are going to say. This is the guy that we have to break the bank on. Forget about some of the bad contracts cracks that we have on the books the ells berries and the stands that means nothing this Garrett Cole thing is a different animal and we have to do this and we have to outbid the angels or for their steadfast in their approach. which is? We're going to take it to this level. And if he goes somewhere else and he goes somewhere else. I mean that's really what Garrett Garrett Cole is about right now when you're Scott bores guy. Same thing with Rendell. When I think and same thing with Stephen Strasburg who also Boris guys? It's GONNA come down to every last dime what I'd like. I'd also like to know I'd like to know the status of Domingo Herrmann. Yeah what is the status of Dha. Nobody is written anything. Nobody has said anything. Nobody knows anything thing. And that's that's something to look at. It is look at the Astros right. They handled it horribly. But just that whole situation you're clubhouses a tough thing different story. I mean you know that that that thing that happened with the Astros was because of some numb nuts you know in the front office decided to be a tough guy and start yelling idiotic things to female reporters. I don't get it. Why guys put themselves in that situation like that? I don't understand that it's it's just. The point being is that the player was playing the Houston Astros gave them another chance. Everybody deserves another chance if they paid their price and they go through the system Mingo through everything that needs to be done. You know. I'm not I don't know where to Mingo. Her MOM will end up. If you'll ever end up on a Yankee team again I don't know but he's not going to end up not playing playing baseball anymore. Sure he's going to play baseball someday. I just don't know when it is or who is four to top one right because like you know if you're the Yankees you know this guy throughout throughout his entire career. He makes his horrible horrible thing he does. I'm not I'm not even in a corner mistake because I don't think those mistakes are like you know forgetting to set your alarm arm at night. That's not slapping a a woman in front of people at a charity event. That's not a mistake. I mean that's a heinous act so then he commits this heinous act in you know. Oh not that. It's a good place to do it but do it in a public place in front of Major League Baseball officials one of his team's teammates charity events. Is that a guy you want to bring bad. That's the point I don't I I you know who knows. I mean. He'll be pitching somewhere. Someday I just don't know where And I think that's also something that is looming over the Yankees decision that they have to make to. Yeah and you know. That's why I think I think the backup plan. It sounds like you know you read all the commentary and you hear all the opinionated voices and everything out there all all the Yankees have to sign Zach. That's after Zach. Woo after Zack Wheeler I think that probably is not the first thing that they would like to do but if they end up having to their pitching staff he was probably going to be the guy. They'RE GONNA go after if they if they assume that Garrett Cole Sobat the apparently really you know a couple of things about him you know. He's obviously retired now. He's going to do as media thing. He mentioned how he talked to Garrett Cole as I said about being a California guy and then come into New York you also was quoted saying if you give that mother bleeper enough money. He's GonNa WanNa come here so he knows as well he understands understands the business better than anybody if you give the mother bleeper enough money. He will want to come here. I just I. Just don't I mean you mentioned Zack Wheeler the Pivot Zack Wheeler. I mean that's if already Marino in the angels decide to go that extra mile to get Garrett Cole and Garrett Cole doesn't get that type offer from the Yankees and then they say all right. I know that this this kid Zack. Wheeler Can Pitch New York. We know that we can get him at a at a discount. And that's going to be our plan. B I just don't know after you know forget get about two thousand and sixteen for a second but after your two thousand seventeen eighteen and nineteen now with the Yankees going out in the postseason two two teams that made it to the world series in two out of those three won the world series. I don't know if the pivot is something that is appetizing to their fan. Fan Base to the cheaper option. I don't know if that's something that's GonNa be acceptable again. It all comes down to the angels stones. Seems like they're going to be the major player here. Oh and they go an extra year they go an extra two and a half three million a year. Who knows I mean I? It's hard to say that kid is. He's from there and and everything else and I know that it's going to bat for the Yankees and that's something that you could really appreciate but when you take a look at the Yankees you look at their their long term contract situation. I mean you know they. They're going to have to pay a lot of other guys eventually. This is one of the reasons why if he doesn't resign with the Yankees on a short term. One year. Deal you you know. It's just he is part of the collateral damage for me of bad decisions like stanton and like Ellsbury. Yeah this is what happens. So you lose quality you know great leaders great clubhouse guys For All intents and purposes a guy that everybody likes the the fans like them And it seems like everybody's been doing but there has to be a reality check when it comes to how much money they're gonNA spend. I know I don't really give a crap. It's their money. They spend as much as you know as much as I want them to spend. But they're gonNA THEY'RE GONNA hold they're gonNA hold steadfast and that's why the decision to bring stanton here at least right now. Looks like a really bad decision Asian. Because it's going to cost Didi Gregorius. Most likely most likely it's GONNA cost unless he wants to stay here. Yeah if he wants to stay at a discount possibly if there's other teams out there that don't give him a market value. Possibly I mean I know that the Yankees have options because of what happened last year. I mean how many players did they throw into the Infield in a page then ended up doing a good job for you. Know the versatility of Gleyber Torres. I just remember Andrew Harz coming back next year. Yeah you don't know where they see him. They see him in the outfield that they see him as swing. INFIELDER is backed up third. Or we're going to stay there. I mean there's a million questions that it'd have to be answered but you know sometimes injuries take care of these. Thanks sometimes you know an injury happens and all of a sudden you know some guy finds himself like we saw this this year throughout the year because we all thought he was going to be the swing guy move around. He was gonNA play but he wasn't going to be then he becomes a central figure to the success of the a Yankees this year. So you have to think you know. Where are they going to go especially with Andrew who are coming back or is he trade chip for somebody else? I mean who knows I mean these are a million questions that the Yankees have got to answer and part of the fun of the Hot Stove League is trying to figure it out and we're going. I guess the biggest question they need to answer is why can't they hit in the postseason. That's the biggest answer your you think about twenty seven two thousand eighteen twenty nineteen not being able to get the big hit in the big moment man has been their downfall more than anything else. So yeah I still think even with that being a fact and not an opinion that it was the offense really held them back more than anything in the story is in the in the series against the Astros you. I still think that starting pitching and upgrading. That puts them in a hell of a lot better situation to go and win a championship campionships. But if you're Brian CASHMAN and his entire group of Analytical Mary men who are looking at why the Yankees failed again to win a championship. Campione chip you know. They're not going to come up with numbers that say that we need to improve the staff. Tanaka has two years left two years left on his his initial seven year deal. He's a free age actually no one more year. He's a free agent in two thousand twenty one. Okay all right Jacoby. ellsbury is a free agent in twenty twenty two. Now he's still there's still two more years of ellsbury right Man who more one of those a club option or something and there's gotta be some sort of relief. They're coming up now. No ellsbury earn a salary of twenty one million one hundred forty two thousand eight hundred fifty seven a while carrying total salary of the same number. So Oh he's got next year this coming season. He's on the books this coming season. And then twenty twenty one as well. You're telling me yeah. Well yeah that's the. He's a free agent Asian toll one hundred twenty two. I mean that's when he'll retire right I would think so. There's just I never know what he thirty six thirty seven now. Yeah but so there are a couple bet you know. Obviously you have the Stanton contract at twenty five million per year and he doesn't become a free agent until twenty twenty nine right. I mean you know now to Nakas coming off the off the rolls twenty twenty one so but then with all of that we also have to remember that the Yankees have to pay some of these younger longer guy's arbitration. That's the point. Yeah so that that is always the that's always the thing that's got to be in the back of their minds being Giancarlo Stanton. There's still a chance that he comes back and ends up. A being a factor for them. I know that it's really really hard to say that. And have any sort of faith in that but there is a chance that he can be a player Ellsbury. We know. Oh He's done but it's not like Giancarlo Stanton couldn't get together have a healthy season and hit forty home run one hundred. RBI is next year but the point being. This is Tanaka's last year. Yeah so so you know. He's making twenty three million so these these are the things that you've got to be thinking about. If you're Brian Cashman you've got to you and I'm sure they all are over there trying to figure all this stuff out the money out out see whether or not they need to move somebody acquire someone see if they can get somebody to take on a bad contract if that's at all possible which I doubt but they only have really bad contracts right. I mean it's it's really only ellsbury insane. There's no other bad contract that they have or even guys that are making that much money that they're gonNA WANNA part with Aroldis Chapman no way no plus remember they just gave Hicks and Severino money but Hicks is not going to be available next year. Those are those are team friendly deals. I know I know but but Hicks is not going to be available so there you go. You already have your first injury going into next season. Yeah I know like Gorey's last year the debt but the right exactly that at injury I think is going to is going to make them want to resign Brett Gardner and they should. I mean after the season that he had a why not now I understand. There's there's a couple of times in the postseason that drove you. Nuts seem hitting third and and not delivering but I mean as far as versatility and what he brings to the team. There's no reason not to bring him back at this point unless you feel like there's another guy in a light Kim who's younger that maybe you could bat third in a postseason. If you have all the injuries you have again but I think there's no reason not to bring back himself again. He did not look like he regrets it all. I mean who say. It's the baseball or whatever I mean. His power numbers were were through the roof this past past year. So I mean this is this is where it starts but we know that it doesn't end anytime soon. I remember with the Free Agency opening. And then you get closer to Thanksgiving used is to read all the articles about the hot stove warm up around and then the winter meetings would happen some time in December and stuff would just start flying at that point. You know now how it's been the winter meetings come and go and the top guys are not even signed when spring training starts and I wonder if that's going to be another situation like like we have again and is it going to be another off season where you're seeing few is go but then these older players hang around. Don't get side yes I am now going to the IMG Academy all that stuff is that what's going to happen again. I would have to say probably because I don't think these general managers have changed their tune in one off season. I don't think guys like with thirty. Two years old had into free agency year. We're going to get ten years at the thirty million dollars. Does an apple a guy like todd. Frazier is GonNa have a hard time. Yeah he's going to have to take a unfortunately for him see but then again. This is the fight that I go back to. I've been talking about this. I feel like forever ever for the last eight or nine years where these analytics guys the guys out of the world come in and all of a sudden change the dynamic Democrat way people are thinking now. I think that if you are Tony Clark the head of the Major League Baseball Players Association. You've got to do something about it. The arbitration rules are restrictive strict of and they're keeping salaries down and the GM's have changed the way they do business so when you last negotiated your CBA. It was under a different different way of doing things now. All of a sudden that has shifted financially guys are still getting paid. But they're not getting paid what they thought they were going to get. Paid the top guys in the reason why you can't talk about collusion or you can't talk about a players strike or whatever else is the top guys are still getting top dollar. bryce Harper Manny Machado Auto. These guys are still getting to know one are not all these guys are still getting ridiculous. Conduct you gotta remember what they it's ridiculous our is but it's not ridiculous in there is because initially they thought that those contracts should be in the neighborhood of four hundred million not three hundred million get still three hundred million dollars now dude again. I'm not saying that that's it's not a lot of money I am. I'm telling you internally at the Players Association they're saying that these salaries are depressed. It's hard for you and I to even imagine that. Yeah but they're thinking that there should be bigger growth or better growth so I'm just telling you how they're thinking you can't think of it like a fan now. It's like when we talk about the Yankees. I don't care how much money they spend. They spend as much as I want them to spend their money. Yeah and they're charging me big numbers for tickets. I want you to spend the money if you want me you to buy your tickets bought the competitive balance tax. That's holding teams back right which which which again the competitive balance tax is something. That ten years ago wasn't wasn't in place Yeah so now. It's a whole different system and if you'RE GONNA if you're GONNA hold players like Anthony earned. Don't he's finally a free agent. How old is he? Oh Yeah I mean. He's a young guy but I mean these you know he's not twenty. Who Lives Twenty nine? Yeah He's twenty point. He said he he should have been free when he was twenty five. Yeah that's the thing. That's that's the crux and that's when you get into this whole thing about you know holding a guy back in spring training because because you want you don't want him to start his yet. Also I mean you did have Bryce Harper and Manny Machado at twenty five years. Old Guys. Do that's two guys okay but those are two humongous examples. I WanNa see it will be interesting to see what Ren Dawn and what Garrett Cole get here because this will tell us a lot this will give us a real sense as to whether or not free agency is what it used to be or what its become boomer and Geo just getting started on this Wednesday morning on the fan across the country on CBS CBS.

That man was on a mission Steiner's they were fully backing this and do whatever the hell you want. Whatever it takes we've had enough of this bullshit within win in the twenty tens of the decade? You know what fuck it. You know what we're going to win. Every every single year in the twenty twenties to make up the dynasty is back the evil empire is back everyone else. If you're not a found pinstripes you're fucked Jerry. Karabelas try the jinx as much as he could. Oh there's no way the he's not talking to Yankee Dallas same thing nope you're both fucking you're gonNA Trade David price away. mookie Betts is gone read. Read something fishy dead last week. He's going to be unbelievable. Enter your mind is like ten thousand win the World Series Luis Severino Garrett Cole get to your part of our lives for the next next decade. unahppy can't believe it actually happened for now on. I'm going to assume the worst because I'm one for one in that we're the best possible thing happened when I soon the words I lost faith like twelve hours ago. I just didn't feel right. And what happened the ready Blah Blah Blah and then the angels. Those were out of it. Marino hit his his price. Apparently apparently they're offered in even come close so much being all in the okay Good for them by Bo. Good for baseball the way enough. What people ruining their baseball careers in Los Angeles for the angels? Fuck that dodgers you pay enough. People got enough people. Suck you. It's our time Garrett Cole will be. He's GonNa me pitching in Baltimore to start the season as the ace of the New York Yankees and I have. I don't think I've ever been happier minds. I realize I don't think I have. I really really don't think I've ever been Ha- I haven't had a kid yet. Say having a kid is the best moment like while I haven't gotten married probably never going to get married. This is the happiest moment. Ireland Estonia on world series aside from the Yankees World series. Obviously but like this is a I love being the bad guy again. Like for all the people who said you know the Yankees. And they're they're cheap. They're cutting this and that and I'm going to go to bed tonight with the done dead Don Ed and just like all night like I'm just GonNa Fall Asleep to that like a fucking alibi all night long. I'd like to thank Brian Cashman for putting this often presentation together other. I like thank Andy Pettitte for Pantley being fucking superstar in those meetings. Aaron Boone Matt Blake the Pitching Gurus going to somehow make Garrett Cole even better the seats back there some preacher he was tampered the fucking Garrett Cole all season long and last but certainly not least most of all the Steinbrenner family people said all their cheap author this there that Georgia's dead house cheap. He's frugal now. They were waiting for their guy. Didn't want Harper. It really want Machado. They were waiting and they got him. It all makes sense. You could look back at how they passed on all these guys. These past few years and I could swallow that fucking pillow now because they had one big big fish and they finally ruled them in. You know in a vendor's endgame. When doctor strange tells Tony they only they only win? Once there was only one outcome where the dynasty comes back. This was. It wasn't Machado. You had the lead Machado Walk. Let Rice Harper go. You couldn't sign Patrick Corbin. You had to suffer watch. The Red Sox win the world world series. All because of this moment here because this Guy Garrett Cole is the ticket to not one world series but the next New York Yankees Dynasty. It's happening whereab- if your lives and -gratulations you're live hopefully on the market. Wake Up. I'm not going to go to Ben. I'm not Bosa radio because I'm doing my fantasy football punishment. I said everybody. Wouldn't it be funny if he just signed tonight. Well he did get a never gonna go to sleep again and the Yankees Dynasties Back I. It's so perfect five-year opt-out is plenty plenty seat. He's he's about said that the opt-out when he signed so important too because you know when you sign someone you move your whole family across the country you don't know if you want your your locked in for all ears. You're seventy nine years that sucks five-year opt-out is perfect for both sides. He can still get. He'll be thirty four. If you ops out amazing on both sides it's I mean there's there's no way he's going to opt out that unless he just hates. New York's every fiber of his being. But you know what wanted it. Just for the oxen fine gets full. No trade clause. Who knows it's GONNA be? Oh Shit breaks if you give them a whole fuck in Sweden inky stadium for him and his family. I don't care. Just give them everything he wants he is this was they needed did that. We've been on the verge of a new dynasty. You know the little rebuild many rebuild restocking. They're going to call it and the twenty sixteen twenty seventeen. They need that one final piece. This is it twenty twenty American to be like what plus two hundred two hundred series. Plus they're gonNA be plush money to to win the world series. You think they're going to be your think they're going to be. That heavy favorites might have two hundred no way. Who's WHO's better than nobody's better but to say that there did you see the Astros Trae by the way I know this is sidetracking? But apparently they're on the verge of trading Correo way to to free up money. Here's me Louis Castio. That scares me because like who knows what they're gonNA fucking do to him. But whenever I don't care I want to think about the astros right and we just booked their best pitcher we just took him. And he's hours all your home for the character. Garrett Cole probably no idea the astros wherever cheating he saw these videos he heard about the supports. I have to get out of this organization and go save the franchise and the Astros have screwed over the past three years. Thank you Michael. The ultimate ultimate punishment for cheating everyone last three years. We just took your best pitcher and he's ours. He's GonNa terrorize you for the rest of your goddamn lives. I I only twenty nine like nine years Joachin Justin verlander. He's fucking Putin unbelievable. Thirty five thirty six and and that blankets. The work with him mad likes going to make him better ext somehow going to get better. He's going to be. This is crazy crazy. This is fucking crazy. They fucking God they actually just got him on. My God and I love Scott Boris level title. I love you. Scott bores Scott Boras. I was doing the math in my head. I'm now who is not the richest man in America. If he's making like five to ten percent of every contract he signs he has to be a billionaire like the numbers work out. He's got to be a fucking billionaire. He wars in the Yankees. He's like they're meant to be like two ships. You know like the Yankees are the big evil empire willing to spend the most money. Stop Wars that slimeball agent or you're GONNA get every last penny out of every team. He can for his best players. They're meant to be. Though the perfect marriage Garrett calls the perfect love child of the two also so location is so overrated gives a fuck about location. We said that all the angels never like yeah. Locations is California's Suns Kool. Well guess what you could still live there on the autism pal. The fact of the matter is that the angels would never ever are never going to have a winning situation ever. It's just not going to happen. They're aw what happens now. Now they're they're like eighty four. Wins you joining team. That's just one hundred three games. Is there a run. The doors of the world series any just brought in the best guys shouldn't Wanna Cy Young. Oh my God man. I can't replicate the actual feeling when I saw the past week because I have every single beat writer on twitter notifications so I knew the second happened literally point one seconds after passing tweeted and I dropped my phone and I I just screamed on radio and I just I saw it from our group so last week. And our shore ports group tax avery our producer sent all caps. OMG and then linked to juster port. I think it was a jeff. PASSAN report that like they were really all in on coal or like next. OMG ON G.. Group Chat Group Texan. This chat has to be that. He's Yankee saw avery say. OMG He better not be fucking doing this again or Latte you talked about the Lewis. Steel trade in the chats defeats dropping a fucking Owen G for stealing early. After I'm GonNa Strangle and then he said I can finally really say I went to twitter and I saw the John Hayman Tweet Inc meeting for a week now to say that. I'm so high that I was able to say that it's good. It's it's big big day. Oh by Shutout Peter Gammons exonerated great person law them not even to Jon Heyman for all the shit he gets of tweeting the same ship over and over. He's just got Scott Boras as cock right in his mouth but you know what like in return. He gets to be the one to break this news. So if I'm John Hayman I'll take not all over my face if I get to be the one to break it. The Passion broke it. No Haven I. Oh Wow yeah on twitter. I thought I got passionate. Whatever even the debt like Scott Boras right broke shroff sleep. That's why every time you mystery team every time he wants. ABC On this guy. CBS or on this you. You know it's just it just got worse rating the tweets form. But you know what John Hayman. I'd have no pride. Either you get to be the one to break. Unbelievable unfunded fucking believable. They did it they fuck it. We'll talk we're gonNA KISS is just. We're recording this literally. Twelve fifty eight in the morning I've got another six hours radiohead of me But by the way I I have not contributed to radio like at all like the percentage of words I've said by far are the lowest because I've literally just been checking twitter past eight hours like I go to a bunch of people that right.

"Live from the Investors Bank studio Bura size in Gregg Giannotti boomer and on the fan simulcasts across the country on CBS CBS. Sports Network. Good Wednesday morning. Eight happened right around midnight eastern time Brian Cashman got his as man the elusive Garrett Cole who he's been chasing down since he was in high school drafted him of course didn't sign with the Yankees went to college got drafted grabbed by the pirates after that tried to trade for him. Didn't work out Astros got him. Well Garrett Cole got the money from the Yankees. He is now in in stripes. Nine Years Three hundred twenty four million. He would not be denied. Brian Cashman was is not going into twenty twenty without Garrett. Kohl's all the Yankee fans out there who've been complaining the last couple of years at the Yankees have not been the Yankees and they haven't haven't gone the extra mile while you went the extra mile this time and you got what could be one of the top three. I believe one of the top three pitchers in all of baseball. Good morning boomer homer our you know what I'm doing great not as good as Garrett Cole though and I will say a Yankee Fan you do have a little coal in your stocking for for Christmas time here in the holidays holidays. And all that other stuff. So congratulations to you and to Brian Cashman for spending other people's money that's great three hundred twenty four million dollars thirty six million dollars dollars a year. I don't care it's their money. Who Cares right and I would say that Major League Baseball Players Association should be very happy with this off season as these contractors attractions continue to grow and grow and grow? And it's kind of interesting because when you compare it to what Jacob degrom has done over the last two years and you look at how much money he's making. What a bargain? The matab with their two time cy young award winner Self Eighty Yankees now. They're still gotTA do some more movement around here. They're trying to to get rid of Jay Half now. He's got a seventeen million dollar contract coming this week. And then of course you lose Didi Gregorius to the Phil. Yeah that's part of yesterday. Yesterday was big. News de Gregori is one year deal fourteen million dollars to go be with Joe Girardi in Philadelphia. And I think he's going to have a great ear for them. I mean this is a guy that clearly the Yankees are ready to move on from and you were on that you know before anybody really talk about at the end of last year. I remember asking John John Flaherty during the playoffs. All the playoffs were going on. You think dede is GonNa come back and and he's not he's not coming back in. The Yankees had decided to move on. Labor tour is going to be there shortstop. Dj Gentleman who's going to be their second baseman. We'll see how first base shakes out. And you gotta Shell and do our overhead at third base but his guys a clubhouse leader and he did one of the most host impressive things that we've seen in Yankee pinstripes over the last decade or saul which was replaced Derek. JETER and be a guy that people weren't comparing him to okay is amazing what he did when you think about what. He accomplishes the Yankee baseball players. So I I don't know I'm going to miss him. I think he's a terrific player. The terrific leader like you said. He reunites with Geordie. Where of course in Philadelphia? Which means that you know another to me anyway in the eyes of many other A.? Ah I only watch. Excuse me I would say that now the Phillies the brazen the nationals are significantly. Better than mets. Yeah on paper. Sure mets nothing it looks like the nationals are gonNA lose ren don't be surprised ended up signing back there. Yeah I mean they the. It's a very very tough division for sure we I mean the phillies have made a lot of moves that I wanted to make the last couple of years and this. I know that you know getting D.. Gregoire's is not something that was on on their radar. But I've agreed with a lot of the phillies moves. Didn't work out from last year ended up being a fourth place team but you know so far adding Joe girardi adding DD gregorious. This year has been very very impressive. Adding Zack Wheeler of course very very impressive This off season. Basically what it comes down to you. You're replacing placing right now. When you move Jay Hab j happened Didi Gregorius with care? Coal is really what you're doing. Yeah I I don't turnover money in terms of money right. Yeah in terms of money. Sure but I don't know if DD ROSE IS GONNA be here anyway. It didn't see Garrett Cole was a Yankee or not. I'm not sure if the Yankees he's had to do what they're doing simply because you can't pay everybody and tours shortstop that's what he is. He's a cheaper shortstop he's it. It has more control years. I mean these are all things that you have to take into account when you're building your roster at the level that the Yankees seemed to be building it out now you know it's all about moving money around and who do you WANNA pay wall. Tell you what so Garrett Cole turned twenty nine in September. He'll be here until he's thirty eight. I believe yeah nine years right so you know he started. I think thirty thirty five games or now thirty two or thirty three games the last two years so the Astros I I mean. It's a lot of pressure man. This is like he is coming in and this this is not you know. This is where fans engage. This is where like Pat Shurmur finding finding out you know as any as any managers Mickey callaway found out. I mean fans are gauge. Every single time you're on the on the field and for the case of a Pitcher pitcher this a lot of money and this is a million dollars to start or a little bit more than a million dollars to start per year. What this is sure? I've I think if you're going to give that that type of money to a guy. He is the person that he Right yeah performance wise attitude wise makeup wise. I mean I think you know everything about the the guy to meet screams. This is why he pushed all the chips in the middle of the table. You know some of these other guys last couple years whether it was corbin or wherever you're passing on you say now not this guy not this time not bryce supernet Manny Machado. Even though those guys position players know this is this is the one you know and Brian Cashman had mentioned Garrett Cole has been his white whale for a long time and as always wanted him on the team you know it's not just because of his performance it's because of his makeup and you're like Andy Pettitte getting through to him is another reason why I love to hear the bathroom getting through to him. It's not just he was going to take the best deal. We know that but I also think that the whole Yankee Championship thing in the guys like Andy Pettitte about making an impact on them. I mean if you're a Yankee fan you'll love to hear it you'll love everything about it and I don't know if this is going to hamstring them in the future of making other free agent splashes and and worrying about signing your own guys and you got Giancarlo Stanton making three hundred million Garrick Omega three hundred million but this there's something that they could not be outbid by the dodgers or angels. This was their off-season to get the big fish and they got him and we had been screaming. The last couple years about the one thing that Brian Cashman hasn't been able to do in recent memory in recent memory and talking about the last four or five six years is get that's starting pitcher either in a traitor and free agency to put them over the top and I believe that last night or early this morning about six hours ago. He just did that you you well you're GONNA have arbitration signings to you're GonNa have Paxton's going to get a new contract judge Sanchez keenly or shallow. All those guys are you know arbitration eligible and they're all going to get new contracts. They're also going to be bumped up. I don't know how significantly but I I would say you know it's six significant money when you add up all the players and now you add this thirty six million dollars a year a million dollars start essentially what it comes down to and so you add that to Stanton who's got a twenty six million million dollar adjusted salary. Twenty three million for Tanaka Chapman. Seventeen million two hundred grand and then J. happens at seventeen million. So that's why they're you're trying to move Jay hop he's got the they gotta get him Outta here and is seventeen million dollars in a look. You know this is what it is. It's all about moving the pieces around the board but what you do have without question. You have one of the top. Three starting pitchers in major league baseball that every time he takes the ball If you're in the midst of a losing streak or you WanNa start a winning streak or whatever you however you want to look at it you have that person you have that attitude on the mound for you as the New York thank you. You know you're opening day starter as you know your game one starter. Is You know your game seven. Starters I mean that's that's something that they'd been missing. I mean some of this stuff that the Yankees dealt with with the last couple of years especially last postseason with a bullpen game. Here in Chad. Greens GonNa Start there and how the hell is happening when you're the New York Yankees no not anymore or he's just going to have to shave. That's all yeah. Well that's that's the one thing but he's not. He hasn't always had a beard. I've seen him clean shaven before Dolly. He's always had the beard but I mean He. You saw how intense this guy is in that run. Then he went on last year. I mean this isn't this isn't some Fluke Garrett Cole was as good as he was the last couple years especially actually last year. I mean how he didn't win the CY young. I know that Justin verlander during the regular season was slightly better. But I mean towards the end. You'd rather favor later than coal in the postseason because call was dominant ticked off. He was in game seven. He didn't get in right because he wanted the ring. And I think that When you sit down and you take a look at the Yankees and everybody and the other opportunities for you or for him you can say to yourself okay number one best contract good great number two best bullpen? Good Great. That means they're going to get some win number number three a winning pedigree and somebody who is expecting to win right now check number three right. I mean all these boxes that I would think you would want as Garrett Cole have all been answered by the New York Yankees and I would imagine what when the Yankees were interviewing him. And according to Brian Cashman this interview went on and on and on and on you would get the sense. You'd be able to tell whether or not his personality is going to Mesh with what you're doing here with your with your team. So and I think they got the guy they got the guy. Hi Now. This is what we've been screaming about for five years. Go get this guy. Yup and they finally have their guy the rotation the guy that's GonNa take that ball every day and is going to give you a chance to win every single game. He's on the mound was so hopefully things work out for him. Good for him. Getting the money for the players. I gotta believe the players are happy. Oh you think about a two guys in two days two hundred and forty five million dollar deal and a three hundred twenty four million dollar deal last year two guys making Megan over three hundred million in the totality their contracts and Harper and Machado. Two guys that were in their twenty s soon as they hit free agency you you would think that some of this collusion Asian stocks did we had been hearing is now out the window now. I know there's still some veteran players that you don't get as much of a fair shake as maybe they did ten years ago but that's because as the game is going in a certain direction and there's no longer long-term commitments to position players over thirty years old that are on the decline statistically an analytically but that's just a different story. That's just what you're worth. But as far as the general managers getting together and say we're not going to Dole out big contracts which you heard from players and members of the Players Association bullcrap bullcrap. We've got four contracts here in more than that because you had also guys like Mike Trout and no-one aeronautique that stayed with their teams. That didn't even hit free agency. They ended up getting an exorbitant amount of money. I mean the players have to be absolutely thrilled with number. Trout's four four hundred twenty six and a half million in Harper's three hundred and thirty million stands three hundred and twenty five million Garrett Cole. Three hundred twenty four billion and Machado of course with San Diego at three hundred million. That's let's Yankees. Got Two out of those five out of those five right now. You know what that means. It's either you win a championship or you get fired. Cowards over over or somebody's getting fired. I would think that you know the pressure now in the expectations now because of adding a guy like this is our about a significant as they've ever been for the Yankees. Yeah Yeah that's fair. I mean they always have pressure but now when they go out and do this it does ratchet up. I believe that to be the case too but I also think they got they got the right guy by James Paxson. We didn't know we heard thing though. He's he's from Canada he's big maple doesn't matter showed us up in the second half of the season. Aw Come Awhile to get there that last start. He made a Yankee Stadium and elimination game. The Guy was awesome. So that was good to see but Garrett Cole you don't have to worry about them I'm not saying he's going to be perfect but as far as makeup and if he can pitch a New York and if you can pitch in the postseason lock you can't see this crumbling in a big spot. We just watched him in the post. That happening either. I just say that you know he knows what he's getting into. His sister lives here right. So that's good. And he was a Yankee fan growing up. Maybe that's something to do with it. Who knows but look what the New York man? Yeah no I know I look at it and good for them and good for him. Yeah I mean he is he is someone to with it like. It's really easy to root for them because him standing on the mound that intensity that he has you know walking off the mound after a strikeout like he's that guy like when he's yours these on your team like a Roger Clemens attitude yes absolutely. I agree with that I had he. I mean this was this was about as is good of a morning. Wake up or last night. If you were up I mean I I thought something bad happened when I rolled over at two. Am and check my phone. And I had three or four more Yankee fan text in the middle of the night. They didn't even care that I was sleeping with Woohoo this and check this out. How great this and everything else I mean this was? There's about a good as a gift as as you could possibly get if you're a Yankee Fan and you do if anybody calls up today complaining about the money and you're in there Yankee Fan you know who cares knots. Money money they have they can spend it. Yeah of course and it's not like they're like overspending for the entire team because they obviously are going to get rid of half the all the already lost. Awesome Didi Gregorius. They're going to have came off the book right. CC came off the books. So they're going to have to pay some of these other guys and they're going to have to give a thing somewhat of a significant -nificant raise to Brett Gardner. Yeah and Andy. Martino tweeted out just a few minutes ago. That expect the Gardner signing to happen soon. Now today you'll the probably hear whatever that's going to. Because they need them. They absolutely need them and they also need for couple more reasons other than the fact that Aaron Hicks is not healthy. Is That de Gregori. who where's where's the lefties right now now the DVD's in Philadelphia? Where are the lefties? So Mike Ford. I mean that's what we're talking about. Yes yeah that's what you're talking about. I mean those are the kinds of the left the lineup Brett Gardner and Mike Ford I would take I would. I would end up taking a look at that if the Yankees. I'm sure he's looking at that in. Probably some other outfield outfield depth position. Try to find the left ear. Something who knows I mean this is. It's interesting they got the guy that they wanted to get they're going to have to maneuver a few other contracts around they're gonNA have to pay a few guys in arbitration and be interesting to see where this number ends up pat. Yeah it's going to be interesting to see whether or not they give any of these younger players a maybe a deal by the arbitration years like we saw with Hicks in Severino nine years. Three hundred twenty four million Alien Dollars Garrett Cole is a New York me ask you this. Who is who is your number two starter for the Yankees coming back at the beginning of the year? Do you think it's Tanaka. Do you think it's how do you think it's Paxton or do you get Severino. That's pretty good lineup. If you WANNA go coal Paxton lefty FDA. And then go to Tanaka third. I mean I don't know it'd be some sort of combination of that but yet here's the question. What's interesting about your question is there's no debate anymore about who your number one guy? That's tried to know what we do know number one. It's the morning show with boomer Esiason in Gregg Giannotti boomer and Geo oh the totality of it is nine years three hundred twenty four million dollars. Jerry RECCO is here. Good Morning Jerry. What's happened in wanting brought to you by Mercedes Benz of Morristown the only thing they add to that new full? No trade clause From one story I saw too. But Yeah Garret called the Yankees for the next decade man essentially on the opt-out opt-out I believe is after five years. Yeah five so he is here through the next five for sure also. DD Yes goes to the PHILLIES and a one year contract and Adam Jones going about that Japan Japan. Yeah he's going to pick up his family and go to Japan's and it's time to make a big family decision. What team is playing for out there? The Chiba Lotte nine. I was bobby valentines signs theme Oxus. Oxus okay I forget or maybe or US or just google it or as anything else. I'm a big Chiba. Lotte Marines. This I'm this. I believe it's onerous team. If you find it real quick by just googling it yeah. That'd be a big help. Maybe Boris Dragons Flores the it's orix buffaloes orix okay that was worse or Buffalo's yeah so there you go so Adam Jones heading yeah to Japan That's pretty much knicks. Did lose to the Blazers. Shocker one fifteen eighty seven they are four and twenty. They've lost your. Yeah you lost issue profit now. The twenty was like pretty good. Yeah I blame the Knicks. They didn't hang on the game. Long enough you're right. He played twenty four minutes. Nine off was a closer game would have gotten more minutes. So you're right. I mean we set it at. What like twenty six six and a half? And then when you saw twenty years all over Twenty Damian Lillard will pay twenty five minutes. He had thirty one points because he was red. Hot thought he was. How about this stat? The Knicks were seven of thirty seven from three point range. Just stop shooting three pointers. They can't for thirty seven. That's embarrassing embarrassing. And that's being able to shoot RJ. Doing right now whoever. The scouts are for the The next should be scouring the globe for three point shooters right. Yeah I mean sure just players period about that just competent basketball players. Day when you thought this was going to be a good team yeah well. I didn't say good team. You you guys like Marcus Morris. Thirty one's sure at this one. I said thirty wins. That's all said. Is that a good team. I thought they I still listed the logic Egypt there remains. They should not be this bad. They're on pace for thirteen. I mean they should not be this bad. Julius randle Marcus Morris should not be this bad when you play the knicks the opposing teams look. Look look at it. As a scrimmage basically scrimmage terrible lillard thirty one he can shoot. He was eight of twelve from three three Carmelo did have sixteen in RJ. Baron Kevin Combined to for sixteen shooting for a total of seven points. They've lost ten straight starts at the rookie wall Interim head coach Mike Miller who says a Lillard made it impossible for us to the fact that we were not making shots and he was it. It kind of spiraled us a little bit in a direction. We really didn't want to go in. And he says point guard any any team that has a you a ball. Handling shooting. Point Guard is going to murder the knicks. He said at the end of the day games like this happened in eighty two games Schedule you're going to have have some nights where the ball just won't go in go in last night for them. That's for sure. David Fidel said by the way he was like some nights. You're just GONNA get killed. And then they fire fire him and then the new guy comes in and goes yes some nights you just gotTa get killed with this group. My it was Carmelo so I guess there's an article the Damian Amien Lillard wrote for the athletic I think just towered sounded. He was asked He's read it yet. Because it's about loyalty to your team stuff like that not yet. No I don't read Auguste back on and so the follow up don't did you stop reading articles. Did you stop reading articles or have you never got to New York. The smart and then referenced sow tried to be loyal once or wanted to be loyal one so I may imagine. You're talking about the Knicks. Maybe didn't say once. But he was talking about how he tried being loyal and he didn't say the Knicks would love to know. What did you just said not Jeremy Lin? That's for sure no repeat that recycle I. I don't read articles nothing even if it's really probably. The smart thing to do was written by teammate. Well he said he will. He said he will actually check that one out because it is his team. Okay but I think he's probably got the right frame of mind not to read with. The writers are writing about him. I guess so. You know there's been a lot of positivity with this guy in the last couple years that's true Hornets beat the wizards one. Fourteen one zero seven. The heat outscored. The hawks. twenty-two strategy was twenty two run from down six with a minute to go and then into overtime. They wound up beating. The hawks. One thirty five one twenty-one Dunkin Robinson insult thirty four points he at ten threes maybe the next can get him and the Sixers beat the nuggets ninety seven to ninety two Number One Louisville falls at the garden the Texas Tech Seventy to fifty seventy year Maryland Roland team. UC Cowan's over the weekend boomer unbelievable early struggled last night. They lost at Penn State. Seventy six to sixty nine and a loss for your saint. John's John's they won. They beat Brown but we stop a heron. Yeah suffered an ankle injury. I guess he had to be carried off the court do not know the severity of it. but that certainly is not good news for them and Mama beat Princeton by one and a buzzer beater. Sixty seven sixty six rutgers Wisconsin tonight art of the NFL jets head coach. Adam gays he was asked about Levian bell going bowling Saturday tonight and how that looks. Let's say so. It doesn't look good. He was then asked if there will be disciplined for this the discipline for gentleness you have to stay in your house yes trying to funny so he was Belle are you. You surprised about the backlash for all this. Through the bigger surprise I willing to fifty one off the flu. That's the biggest surprise is he doesn't realize like how everybody else looks at it. That's the amazing thing and then also like a half. The media sitting there laughing is ripping him in. I never yard. But then when he makes a joke to face the article turn around and rip the hell out of come on right but but that's but that's what's the mindset that you're dealing yes I oh I want bowling. So let's wait. Are we getting paid. Fifteen million dollars essentially a million dollars a game people play football. And you're not playing football but your ball on a to fifty one before he said career-high yeah. I have an orange tight leather pants and then some guy I actually had a follow because what was your previous high. He's a two thirty eight to thirty eight and two hundred fifty one. Hell I mean. Did anybody go. You're making fifteen million dollars. Didn't play in a game and you're out till one. AM LIKE LA-. Last time. I had the flu I was that was at a I was in bed for you almost straight straight days. Well the the problem here is is that you know. He is in a sport where people buy tickets. Buy Jerseys support him so he can make his fifteen million dollars and people are irked that he is bowling the night before game when he should be playing in the game right that that's and he doesn't get that and everywhere we were. I looked yesterday. Every ex player ex-coach anybody that I had seen on. TV talking about this are saying all the same things we're saying it's it's just not the right thing to be doing right but he doesn't see it that way. And that's that's where like you know we could sit here and scream and yell at Adam Gates in a coach. He's got didn't have control of his players. There's Adam cases right. I can't tell stay in his house. Yeah if there is any way that they can trade him and find a team that will accept that contract. He is gone immediately. I mean they might trade for a seventh round. Pick just to get out of here and get the money off the books still look into the trade dead cap money stuff because because it's not that not that easy all the time but they probably want him off this team so bad well. He's also infected Bill Powell because he has the flu now and so I don't know if he's going to play Thursday in Baltimore or maybe he'll be Bolan tonight. Man I mean maybe could be They do expect Belga. How long did it take Levy? I'm bell to gain two hundred and fifty one yards. How many how many how many games that I would say? A good handful though. Probably by three would be my guests in a career high in bowling but hasn't had that on the football field no Giants head coach Pat Shurmur. Not Doing himself any favors. I would say I should say he's players players not doing himself doing him. Any favors Shurmur and a conference call. Yesterday was asked after reviewing the tape because there was really no answer for it. Not a good answer How Zachary Zacher got so open in that game winner? He was asked after seeing the tape. How do you explain this now and the answer is well? Well we just dropped coverage on Erz. That's that's often. That's how I explain it. This girl other explanation than that and well there is actually not good. The Zelic Ogle trae. Who was on with Joan evidence? Fourteen seconds the end of this is obviously the worst part. We had guys doing stuff that we have the practice on or really been in that situation the better communication got got lost and who is supposed to do what and you know they were. They were able to execute on. We weren't really prepared for that. Play Yeah They already oh yeah. That's the old knife that's also be. Well you know it could it be is an old trees fault. Is it. Smith's fault Michael Thomas. Thomas has looked like at. That's what it looks like to me by looking at the tape but it's hard to say if They were communicating. You got him. I got I. Am You know each other on the field. That's allegory. Just said two things that make the coach looked terrible. One is we were doing stuff out there that we don't practice and then the other the thing was we weren't prepared and if you've got the captain of your defense and saying that after that loss quickly the next day not doing him any favors et al.. How long did take a levy on to get two hundred and fifty one yards a five games? Five Games I said three. Yeah the answer. He's dead five five. Oh you were asking him with them. Yes five game gooby two hundred and fifty one yards. Yes had a terrible season at sixty that six best Boeing. Yeah it's good. I think he's come here and said some sort of record fifty yards a carry a game boy. It was sixty yards then sixty yards then thirty five yards and fortysomething your house with Luke faulk though right yes some of those. Yeah that's a good point. They had eight men in the by at eleven actually so speaking to him so when you see the dead cab the number on the spot track and it's seventeen million dollars next year that means that if they trade him they would say that. I believe they eat. That doesn't go with him. It's not just behind Gadot. That's the thing I'd I'd love to know because if that's I mean that's prohibitive right there if that's the case now year after that it's four million and that's that's something that's easy to to deal with in the NFL. Nineteen nineteen more games. unbelted probably cowboys owner Jerry Jones on the fan in Dallas. He did not curse he was not cut off. None of that. It was a normal conversation. Ever sation was Sean and RJ. He was asked if he or his son. Steven have spoken to urban. Meyer like the reports have been out there. We have not with any coach not made with any. Why in answering that question? That's he kind of goes on and on and on but yeah he said No I don't know that's true or not but he says that was not the case a a couple of other things before we get out of here. You had the Rangers last night in Los Angeles did not go well for them. Take Away by Michael with Dr Tyler. Toffoli with the goal there made it to nothing at the time. Rangers get a late goal. I think was right or Aaron was really late. Last final minute of regulation and then L. E. Scores again to make it three one that he still I I mean I don't think so. I mean the devils thing but the Rangers don't stink. They didn't play well last night. That was Sam Rosen on MSG. Jonathan Quick Made Twenty Nine saves on the devils loser. Six straight to nothing to a stars team that fired their coach. I guess for conduct rules or whatever the case May this all is coming out of the the whole thing with bill. Peters in Calgary and all that other stuff where some of these coaches have either said things or done things towards the players that the NHL and Gary Bettman is put out that are not going to be tolerated. Tolerated rated right. I heard this Daniel. Kerr Sillo has been doing a lot of media talking about how coach abuse he was a former. NFL player are still of course. But he's been doing on agitator Sean ever you said that Coach kicked him right so he was been talking. A lot of guys would like to kick true car. Sylla said this is like rampant like coach abuse in Utah. And all that I mean. Sorry abuse from coaches in hockey has rampant. All over the place so I. I don't know it's not something that sounds good Joe. Pavillon ski scored a seventh goal last night. Stars wound up winning to nothing. All right. It's the morning show with boomer. ESIASON and Greg Nadi consumer in just a little over a million per starts. That's right so there you go get your tickets. Ready to go to Jason Enteric down. Jason What are you GonNa Brother whom are in the morning Jason's happening. I woke up and I saw this Garrett Cole News An on thinking is that Jacob degrom has got to be kicking himself this morning he would have gotten more than call right depending on him. He's a little bit older than I. I think a year older than me but still. That's not that much average dollars per year. I mean he got about half of what right pitchers coming off. Two straight CY young. I mean this is what happens. When you don't go to free agency you don't have the teams bidding for you and Garrett Cole goes to the postseason has a magical postseason his second second in the Cy Young? And then you got the Yankees. Were desperate. The angels who were desperate all the dodgers who are desperate exactly exactly timing is the other thing too is us met fans ends if you remember what we what were we saying. All you gotTa Sign Jacob Degrom you gotTa Sign Jacob degrom. They didn't have to sign him and he didn't have to sign the contract. He could have bet on himself if you wanted to. Yeah but also the flip side of that is he goes out and gets hurt and then misses out on the pay still making a massive amount of money it just pales housing comparison. They call back. Staten Island Pete. What's happening brother? Baby boomers GE. The morning morning. I turned my radio on the six year. Oh I heard would you give the news. I I couldn't believe it. I'm really happy. I'm really really happy that Yankees got this done because the Yankees the Yankees again. They needed this I think it's a positive thing for them. You know I'm sad to see deedee go. I love to eat. He was great Yankee But this is awesome. This is really great news. Ah Your team is back in the front. The back pages own known in the off season. You know being that team that you know when that big guy hits free agency there in on them mm-hmm they wouldn't be denied and Yankee Andrew Screaming about this last couple off seasons about how they weren't the same. How wasn't George and Blah Blah? Well he can't say that this off season uh-huh and you could say whatever you want about. Not Winning the world series and I know you talk about not getting the key heads and all that other stuff. That pitching was good. A little different. When you have a guy like Sherzer or or now Gary Cole- in your in your starting rotation now it kind of lessens? The burden of everybody else in the rotation which means that they'll have opportunities who needs to be even better than they were last year because this guy is going to take on most of the heat most of the pressure yeah absolutely. Let's go to Joe on Long Island's going on Joe. Good morning guys. How are you good? Nothing much just Extremely studies about this Garrett Cole stunning I think it's well worth the money especially especially with the fifth year option with the for the Yankees. If it's not working out we can finally get rid of a big contract player option not the team option. Oh I'm sorry player option okay. So you're screwed either way and secondly by Gio I think we have a mutual friend. I won't say it over the air air but my best friend works for somebody that I think is related to you. I'M NOT GONNA say over the air but the the signature of your autograph on it still being. It was actually the first autographed at I. I ever signed. It's and I can tell you what it is. It's actually it's the. Where is the toy warehouse that I worked at my Mike Wiesner flunkies head flunky. He owns it toy warehouse and I and I worked in there while I was still at Hofstra make some money as big of the toy warehouse. How are the How are the tariffs working out for the toy industry? We don't talk a lot about that but business is booming as it was I guess. But but he's he's He's he's still doing well. He sells a lot of a lot of crap. I will say a lot of crap but people people by people like little knickknacks Man Crap Ryan incendiary to what's happening. Hey Good morning boomer. What's up Ryan? Yeah look like a lot of people got a whole news and you know maybe the Joe Thin and they You know a little upset by the logical thinking baseball fan. I'm thinking nine years a long a long time. You know there hasn't really been a contract where someone's gotten six seven eight years nine years and done anything really with it toward the end of it. I know this contract that the option but it's really backloaded From what I've read dispersed five years it's GonNa be like one hundred forty five million dollars and then back part of it But you know at the same time you really hasn't been a contract now. We're Albert Pools Trump rubbed no. They don't really live up contracts. So what are you going to say. Yeah of course but this is. This is the price of doing business at this level. As you have to sign line up for those back in years where you're probably not going to get that type of production now. I think a better comparison would be so bath. You write about the assign a long deal. And he was here. He was a leader in the clubhouse. He contributed and even made a start last year in. The postseason wasn't great. But I mean the at the Dan you were still getting something from C.. SOBAT which was amazing. Now if you get that same thing at a gas coal which is a championship in his first year under contract and still contributing in in the last year of his contract and then that's great but it's all about maximizing the front end of this the first three four five years of this deal and winning a a championship or two while you've got them and you needed them now and because you needed him now and you desperately needed him. Now you're going to have to deal with year seven eight nine of this contract contract. That's just it's for him. Machado or Harper. Wherever the hell else? That's just that's just the price of doing business go to James on Long Island. What's up James? Hi boomer Jay. How're you James? What's happening I this morning. Happy Turning out and seeing the the CO got on the Yankee now they need to get that now they need to get rid of HAP- don't they. Yeah they are and they're trying to train them now. Yes I mean. It's one of these things where they want to do that. And that's going to help them out but it's not something that's like if we if we don't trade Jay we're going to go to. They'll they'll they'll find a suitor for him. I mean they they might have to eat some of the money but it won't be the full seventeen million but there'll be a national league team that'll take him on. I'm sure pay most of the freight and be able to free up some of that and remember also so still up the sign a couple of other guys out of arbitration. There's about five or six of those guys that are on this roster so they have to pay more money to other players that they're bringing back next next year including Gardner who's not on arbitration. He's going to. He's a free agent short. He's do a raise right. Yeah I mean I would think so and especially coming off the year that he had which was his best offensive your career basically especially when a power number standpoint so so yeah I mean I. I expect that to happen based off that any Martino tweet leg is as soon as today this morning. Now they've dealt with Garrett Cole they have to bring Gardner back. We'll see what that deal. Looks like Chris in Howell New Jersey. Good Morning Chris. This guy just wanted to say I can't wait till halfway through the season. This Guy Needs Tommy John on now look at Eddie in there. He's not you guys sick man jeeze. That would be if the shoe was on the other foot footing. Was the mets zooming. Chris was a mets fan In the mets got Garrett Cole and a Yankee Fan called up and said that you'd lose your mind come into my. Today's Day of celebration Shen Yankees just spent three hundred twenty four million dollars. I tell you though Wolf Steve. Cohen didn't introduce himself into lar- world. This would be a a much more frustrating day from a met fan standpoint but you know that around the corner. He's going to be involved in these things. It's just just it's not that far away he's going to be involved in these things. Well we're talking about the mets. You know being the mystery team that swoops in and takes about by the way that mystery team. The thing is the biggest load of crap in the world. So if you're paying attention to this stuff yesterday this happens all the time every single year. So Jon Heyman and Scott Boras have like a a long term relationship that they've had. We're Boris and Heyman. Yeah I'll give you some information. You GotTa help me out. That's what it feels like so every time that bores has got a client and they're getting close to a team signing that client here comes John Hayman with the. I'm told there's a mystery team in on so and so oh just to be able to raise the price hoping that a general manager is going to say Oh no another teams in on. This is very serious. Hey just to make sure that mystery swoop in. Here's another year and I saw what general manager is reacting to one of those media reports when the general manager must have worked. It must have worked worked at least once because they do it every year. I know that but I'm just saying like the general manager is in direct contact with the general with the agent sure layer bars also also said to Mr Teams so Heyman tweeted mystery team than bars met with the meetings to mystery teams Komo mystery teams and then they then they caught up with brody and said are you one of the mystery teams. What's going and he was like mystery team now very good player Garrett Cole? Great pitcher obviously but we are not the mystery team. There's no way the mess of history. There was all history team unless it was the dodgers angels when mystery mystery mystery team. It's so stupid every year. It's the same damn thing with the mystery. became a joke all right. It's the morning show with boomer Esiason and Greg Saudi boomer and Geo Rethinking two hundred fifty million dollars minutes thing started and ended up at three hundred twenty four million dollars. It wasn't already Merano wasn't a hedge fund guy from Greenwich Out in La that was going to take Garrett Cole Away. Hey from Brian Cashman and the Yankees it happened. They were not going to be denied. And it's gotTa make Yankee fans feel absolutely tremendous this morning winning. It's not winning. The world series of feeling is different. Obviously but this is about as good as it gets in the off season and I had I gotta give Mark Fine Sane credit because he's been Baseball writer worked for the Daily News for a while the MLB DOT COM now. But we were talking so much about how these signings would go all the way into like February right before spring training and he came out early and he said. Don't expect the same thing to happen this year. These guys are going to go. Because the markets for these pictures are so strong with Strasbourg and coal. We're not going to be waiting. Don't spring training for that market to develop and he's been absolutely right now. There's still one out of the three of these big guys who has has not signed yet. And that's Anthony Ren don't Anthony Ren d-o-n is going to get a massive contract from somebody and I really really hope it's not with the Washington nationals wins big and all this Scott Boras because Scott Boras represents gear coal Stephen Strasburg and Mike stockists. According to spot track they all signed a combined contracts worth six hundred and thirty three million dollars this month alone and if you assume that there's a five percent cut that goes boris his way he's real over thirty million dollars in just a few weeks and by the way he also represents Anthony Rendong. Yeah a lot of he's doing well so either you know parents though. Oh your kids. That grow up to be pitchers agents. Yeah I mean it really is amazing. I mean I can't think of a Scott. Boris failure from a standpoint Wayne of the couldn't get top dollar for these type of clients. Now he's putting his last year. I mean he's he's put some of these guys in some bad places because he's chased after the money but as far as is the the actual guaranteed money that he gets his clients when they hit free agency at these times. I mean there's nobody better that's right. Nobody better Jimmy and Rockland County Jimmy. What's happening? Hey Good Morning Boys. Our what's going on. Hey so tremendous is probably the best word to use. I mean that pitching staff just looked so different it. Just it's fantastic it's somewhat someone said they see Daego. I think all Yankee fans are upset about that we gotta tip our hat. I Guy I mean. He came in and probably the toughest spot replacing. Derek jeter and just was Absolu- class act so wish wish him the best and And I don't know nine nine years three hundred million a gazillion. I don't think all that matters if it doesn't work out in four or five years they'll figure something out and it's all about the world series or or bus really. I mean the money really matter I mean they do they do it. Yeah I mean that's right I'll tell you where it matters. Jimmy the the only where the only place it matters if if down the road you've got stanton and coal under these big deals and that's hurting them because they won't go out and improve the team because because they don't want to go over the luxury threshold that's where it can hurt in a back twenty five years ago and actually less than that. We didn't have to worry about the luxury tax in the in the in the real damages at it does to an organization with the money you have to pay. It really didn't matter because there was nothing to hold you back. So that's the one thing 'cause teams you see with the Red Sox are doing they're trying to cut payroll because they're getting killed that luxury tax. That's the only place that had hurt you. But Obviously Brian Cashman HAL steinbrenner and everybody there at the Yankees have figured out that we could go to X. amount with Garrett Cole and then not get crushed and by the way if they go win a world series next year. You're not going to be cared about nine years now. Nobody cares about that. So let me ask you this question you were saying. I didn't know who said tweeted this but somebody tweeted out the fact that that the Yankees are going to be paying coal and stand more money to the two of them than the Orioles might have on the entire payroll right. Yeah which that was buster only and he believes that. There's a chance that those two guys next year will make more money than the entire Baltimore. Oriels go to Brian Brian in New Jersey. What's up Brian? Good Morning. Hey Good morning guys g oh I mean I think the cost of doing business. That's what you just said. Ten minutes ago the last three years when this guy has fallen off. You said that's the cost of doing Brian. It is at that level John. I'll explain hold on hold on Brian. Geez hold on on a second everybody. Just let me just explain very very aggressive and very angry Brian. Let's have a conversation as that. Sounds all right all right here we go way you get these guys in and the cost of doing business at that level. What I mean is if you want the guy for three years you gotta get them for nine years if you want him on your team now because you need to win a world series? You're you'RE GONNA have to deal with the back end of it because another team out. There will so once the Yankees decided they were going all in on coal. That's just part of it. You gotta take the risk at the back into the deal. It's either you do that or you don't you can't get Garrett Cole and a two year three year deal. It's not the way it's GonNa work. That was what it meant. You're right but you only deal. I've ever seen workout for any wasn't can even that long term Max Scherzer. He only pitcher about C. C.'s. Matthew what about I mean he had a great career here as he got out he she opted out and they resigned them and they they they paid for that same just like they pay for Iraq he opted out they re up him. They didn't have to but the but the first deal right okay. And they've won a world series in his first first year after they've made money he didn't have to reset. They didn't help it out. Okay well there's an opt out for not Deford Garrett Cole after five years so we'll see what happens with that. He lived to the finish line but he lived to the finish. Time COULDA had leaks guys. Two thousand nine. It's ready for tenure drought because going beyond the hook for Garrett Cole. I'm those bad years. Just like they are with within they are. That's going to call it. But if you're you're Yankee Fan Brian Bright. I'm assuming I'm I'm not I'm a met Fan. Okay well that's who there you go exactly why all right I think the passionate he's talking about. I'm thinking he's a Yankee Fan. No I mean he just wants this. This is bad news for the mets fan because the Yankees get the big fish and they're angry so now you gotta find a way. It's not about the last three years of the deal when you go out Garrett Cole that's it sucks that you have to be on the hook for that much money at the end of it but if you want Garrett Cole that's what you gotta do and they really really wanted Garrett Cole so it is the cost of doing business and that level it just is if they go out and win a world series next year. You think that Brian Cashman Yankee fans or anybody give give a rat's ass about the last couple years that of course they hell no thinking about winning the neck modell's and everywhere else to get the championship t shirts or Automobile Orion. They'll be shocked. They're going crazy. They're lining up for the parade. There getting drunk. You think anybody's GonNa be like. Oh man I tell you in two thousand and twenty eight the Yankees. He's GonNa be screwed no. Let's go to Lille Long Beach Leo. What's happened hey good morning guys? What's up great? You just mention region that the only time this might be a problem is going over the luxury tax threshold in the future. So when I heard this news after I said awesome awesome. We finally got my next was what happens with Torahs and judge that would be the only negative now not being young negative Nancy here but that's the only thought that crossed my mind is how are you going to afford toys and judge and to let those guys go in a Greek tragedy. Well I'll tell you why because there's a couple of ways that they can do it now they go to Gleyber Torres and they could try to buy out some of his arbitration years. I don't believe that Aaron Judge is going to do that at this point. But you don't have to worry about the unrestricted free agency of Aaron Judge Until Twenty twenty three so you could still remember only made what he made six and a half million last year. You know you're not gonNA have to pay him thirty million dollars until twenty twenty three and in that time Tanakh is going to be off the books. Who knows if you resign? James Paxson acts. And there's just GonNa be other things that are going to be going on where you have. You'll have more money at that point and with Labor Torres. I mean my goodness you could keep him under your control. We'll get up the exact thing here. Just bear with me but obviously it's going to be even longer than that if you want to do that or you could do what the the braves did with a Kunia Hunia Albee's and give them contracts where they vote their arbitration years very very early and then got so glaring. Jurors will not be an unrestricted the free agent until twenty twenty-five. Yeah I mean I mean you you you know he's still. He's sore years right exactly of him so next year. He's scheduled to make five hundred eighty three thousand dollars so and and you know it's kind of interesting because you know he obviously is exceeding that number significantly we all know oh that yeah but the pro baseball does business. It's a back end business right so all these players have to go through a gleyber. Torres is going through now in order to get where Garrett Cole is or where Stanton ended up I mean so the the Yankees will make a decision here. Maybe you know who knows. After the twenty twenty two season to buy out the last has two years of his arbitration right and that by by then and then pay him more money than they would have to pay those two years and pay them less money that they would have to pay them in the next extra. I would almost go to him right now. From one hundred million dollars and see if he takes it seriously. Because I know but that's what the brave's did with these other guys is like okay. These guys are twenty twenty only one twenty two years old but the braves have talking Tanaka. They don't have they're not going to have Paxton number. They're not gonNA have stands number and they don't have gear Kohls. You're a little bit different. Yeah but but this could save you a lot of headaches down the road when they did it with Hicks they did it with Severino but other. They'll do it now. I think they'll wait another year. Okay but okay as would not now next year whatever and then and then in the foreseeable future but this is the front end of the business thing that you're talking about the back end right. Yeah and this is where teams it was really do. Get their money's worth because a guy like labor tours or guy like like say a wheeler for the mets they got their money's worth the Yankees. Have guys like that all over the the place. I mean Aaron Judge Glacier Torres Gary Sanchez on Andrew. Horace coming back. No whether or not they keep Andrew or they trade him for somebody. I mean that guys coming back. They still have clint frazier running around. They tell me I mean. There's there's a lot of other players that we haven't talked about with the Yankees. That still can be significant parts of the Yankee team moving moving forward in terms of the depth that aspect of things or they could use them as trade bait get what they want in the outfield that they feel like they need another outfielder right. Let's go to Danny and CRANFORD. I'm I going on Danny guys. Good Morning Good morning really quick. This is a really important public service announcement. I need all of the met fans that are driving right now. Now to put their left hand on the steering wheel their right hand against their forehead. Take your index finger pointed to the sky and put your phone to the left. Stop bellyaching about what the Yankees are doing and not doing any goes for you to just it quits a crap if you're looking at your neighbor's driveway. And he has a nicer car. The new deal with it. Get on your life. I don't know what to tell you. The it's interest unbelievable I mean facebook's exploded with my band bellyaching about buying another championship here. We go just stop. It's exhausting to me life daddy to me. And when I heard the news of Deedee and then Cole I was more upset that Didi Gregorius was going to phillies. Garrett Cole Go. In the Yankee I really liked Hedy Gore or Gregorios Joe Girardi going to the phillies that Zack Wheeler going to the phillies data. Should bother the mets Fan Garrett Cole going to the Yankees like it just because you have your your neighbors a Yankee fan or your uncle's Yankee Fan. And he's a he's a crap talker. It really shouldn't matter. You gotta think about what's going on within the division Strasberg's Burg's staying with the national not the thing you gotta root for is Ren don't going somewhere else now. This really doesn't have that much of an effect. On what the mets we're going to be in two thousand twenty. It just doesn't so I know I know that there's there's back and forth and you hate the Yankee Fan. You ate the mets fan and there's some obnoxious. Which is Yankee Fan in your life? I get it but really if you if you care about the mets make it to the play offs and winning the World Series of their own Garrett Cole go into the Yankees yesterday really didn't didn't mean much it didn't unless they mean the world series again. Obviously yeah so what do you want the met fan delusion signs. Yeah apparently told the L. on the forehead thing that sad thing for the Yankee fans there is only one acceptable outcome every year. Yeah they know that. That's one thing I'll give Dan Carter. Read a lot of credit for is weird to see is is that he says it every single time. He's like they did e regardless of what the expectations where he goes. They didn't win a world series. It's disappointing disappointing year. It's a losing year. He'll says that every and young actually believes it has most years or losing years last ten. Yeah Gary and Red Bank. What's up Gary Guys? WanNa talk about the cul de l.. Let's remember that Burland. There is thirty six years old. Wouldn't you want him in the front and your rotation rotation sure. He's talking about nine years on coal deal. I'm all in every Yankee Fan and I'm not obnoxious right very good Gary area. Your favorite type of guy the non obnoxious sportsman Yeah I it's not a lock that Garrett Cole is going to be a waste in the last three years of his deal he could be very good still at that point and then also you know you don't need them to be hopefully at that point the Yankees you don't need them to be the number one starter at thirty thirty seven years old and he. Maybe he's a guy who's third starter was still gets it done at that age maybe contributing in some way positively to the team at the end of the day. I think Justin Berlanda will be thirty seven this coming season and then he'll be making thirty three million dollars and then one more year after that at thirty three million so thirty seven thirty eight years old. Yeah one young. That's exactly right so this is the kind of guy that you're hoping that coal turns out to be right now. He did have have that the last couple of years with the Tigers especially the last year before we got traded he was not the same pitcher in and say you know what I think he. He got complacent Houston. It was great team stunk Doc. And he just you know. I don't say he mailed it in. But that's what I felt like email. But in when he got thrusted into a pennant race and world series chase space. Now all of a sudden he became the just berliner again that he was prior to sign a big contract with Detroit right and when you saw the Washington nationals remember when when Patrick Recording got that massive deal were thinking man like the Yankees. The good thing that weren't in on him is that overpaying for a guy when he's out there doing what he's doing in the postseason in that one year and the nationals won a championship and they had been such that team that had underachieved persona worth every penny he was for them in that series against the Astros but he wasn't great during the year. You know I could be A. Here's an interesting thing Jonathan in new haven. Jonathan what's happening Hey guys you know I am definitely flakes. I did and I'm optimistic but I'm little cautiously optimistic. Just because I mean the Yankees definitely had the cold. It's not like last year when Machado and Harper. Where they just put a sign them because they where the Yankees they need coal like look at what the Red Sox did with sale? They got two great years out of them and then and then a horrible year and now they're stuck with them for six more years and I'm not saying you can't come back and pitch green again but like now it's like who knows what you're gonNA GET OUTTA HIM I. I'm I just don't want that to happen with coal. Obviously yeah but I'm telling you it's the the first three or four years of this deal are imperative if the Yankees don't win a world series in the first three or four years of this deal with garrick cold in this in this contract. It's the failure. It is regardless of how well he pitches sound like Dan from corner rich trove. Though I mean I I really believe that but if you get one in there then you're going to say this if if he starts game seven of the world series and goes eight innings one earned running three hits you you want him to sign the problem with that. At though is that Jacob degrom pitch them in that game I imagine and I got the best pitcher Major League baseball my I team. Yeah on a very team friendly deal. It's the morning show with boomer. esiason and Greg Nadi boomer and Geo Sweetie does not on sound tired every energy you think that he would be wide awake in Garrett Cole siding and everything going on and he should be right in the middle of working if I work like thirty hours straight or something sweeney and Coleman again today or now I believe so I could check schedule I could ask mark. Chernoff showed up to work still but I think they're on at six o'clock or so are they under the nets are on at seven fifteen. So maybe Roy and Mike has started his thing the six six thirty thing.

He's pushing dribbles and kicks Carmelo Anthony with the three in transition Eh. Thirty places radio. I don't mean it's not funny but even this it's got it's got an polarity now Mike Brain and this one was never a game name. That's not what you want to see. WORST OVERALL RECORD IN NBA history. Nine years isn't it. Nine in seventy by the sixers. Yeah nine and seventy nine seventy three. I'm sorry yes that's right. No Right yes. Nineteen seventy-three is right. I feel like that was the worst nine and seventy three three yes. The Knicks are not on that pace. But they're not far off. I think there aren't thirteen games. So they have now lost their ten straight. Eleven of three of their last. Four Games have been by a lot twenty eight points or more. They've lost right. It's been bad. Yeah if we're full season the seventy two seventy twenty three sixers nine and seventy three. The Nets wasn't that long ago ten years ago that I remember when they play in Newark. Yeah it was Twelve and seventy yes. That was a her. I didn't they start that season Owen. Twenty one or something. I don't remember I just remember that year. Being we went I went to a game that season and it was the most most boring brutal night of a sporting in that you could watch the nets. Maybe it was the first year. Oh nine ten. It wasn't the first year we were here. I can't I remember going to a game over there. Sure Newark that the rock was it. I was at the rock that year. They played at the Rock. I'm almost certain it was before Barclay Center was open all right. It was inbetween between. They played a couple years. I WANNA say they're pretty bad anyway. Here's Mike Miller interim head coach. They also won fifteen to eighty-seven not a good night but we can turn it around and play again quickly. Golden State well. I think we're thankful that we have this game tomorrow now to get a chance to get right back out and let's let's get a chance to play you know we'll travel we'll get there and and Try Try to put things back together. And they didn't have things together. That's a sharing that they'll travel and they'll get there while I was a little worried that they wouldn't make it so facts. Eggs like Damian Lillard had thirty one points on nine of fifteen shooting. Eight of twelve from three Hassan whiteside. Seventeen and fifteen. Here's Carmelo. He had seventeen nineteen in the winter. Sixteen in the weenies. We're ready to go. We was locked in Since this morning shooter while locked in locked in for sure. Rj Barrett shot. One one for nine Kevin Knox one for seven knicks at Golden State. Tonight you've got two teams or a combined nine and forty goal the a humane thing about bed. Golden State's been. They're better than the next there. Five and twenty. How much would you have to get paid to stay up and watch the four quarters tonight? Why you bet the game? Yeah I mean the Knicks. They have to win this game right. No I mean why they're worse or worse in the warriors are and they're on the road. Yeah as mortal Chubby announced like Klay Thompson. Miraculously comes back tonight. His knees healed go for forty five. That's not going to be the case. the nets take on the Hornets. Tonight that's on the fan at seven. Fifteen is we've established heat. beat the hawks in overtime. Big shots down down the stretch from Jimmy Butler Butler cross the Robinson back to potter for three got it ties it at one. Seventeen with twenty nine point eight left to go. Oh Oh my goodness are they going to pull out of their hat here tonight. They did pull the web at their king was on heat radio. They were down by six with fifty nine seconds to go trae young against guys. I won't point screamed it's over and then it wasn't over because they came back and scored the next twenty two points going into overtime and they end up beating the hawks by a lot last. It's not yeah pretty Pretty good for them. One thirty five one. twenty-one triple double there for Jimmy. Butler Duncan Robinson and thirty four meantime Sixers beat the Nuggets Ninety Seven Ninety two Joel embiid twenty a two points ten boards. He was asked about being the guy. Now the Butler is gone NOCCO say I'm a big fan is my childhood he he he will so you watch him all the time still keep in tabs on his childhood hero and his former teammate. Why here I never heard that me neither but if you think about it Jimmy Butler? It's been around a while. No I mean they can't be that big of a difference. He's probably he's older boss. Balls alls man. Perhaps he's definitely saying at the point. How old is Joel? EMBIID so Seventy four Jimmy Butler is thirty right and and be. They can't be right. Yeah Twenty. Five writers beads twenty five so five years ago fifteen butler could have been in the legal ready right is so so screwing with guys like right. Exactly no it's the way it was labeled I've no idea I'm just copy and Paste Waco's Louisville Lost Texas Texas tech seventy to fifty seven pence. Tapie your number four Maryland. Seventy six sixty nine turps on the road. Losing that game saint. John's beat Brown Eighty to seventy one. Mustafa Heron suffered an ankle injury in the win yet. Rutgers home for Wisconsin tonight jets head coach. Adam Gates met the media yesterday. He was asked about the seriousness of the flu bug. Ugh Bet love EON bell had flute. They said he can still continue sir. I'm just with his face was like me. You want from me right here. Don't play the the music is just a couple of seconds. He was bell will play Thursday night in Baltimore. Roddick is and that's because Bill Powell has an injury and he's got the flu as well does not look like like he's going for bell big night a bowling Saturday to anyone off the signals. To The yes do you want. Yeah no seventy six clicks. No thank goodness. He's into it's I think it's funny He was asked about his production this year. If he has had the opportunity to be at his best honestly no no no system Mugabe. You Guys Have Fronts New coaching staff and he would later go on to say in terms of that everything can take time out of state and that has always been patient but the honestly no you know what I do know. Be Back to people used to say there was another Spot somewhere. I don't know what it's it's on. I think it's always got a podcast. He's got a weekly on. Bell has a podcast. He's got a weekly. Yeah he's got a weekly podcast. Well let's Eddie said had He said something along the lines of and I'm trying to find it now but basically was dissing the jets where he's like. Oh here it is all right. He goes I feel like when I get those numbers here. People are GonNa look at me differently. Like Dang he didn't have to go to the chiefs he didn't have to go to the culture. Whatever team has a high powered offense? I didn't have to go there to do it. Basically saying in so how many words teams in the League and I got numbers that read data. I was like well. We wait a second. Yeah weekly Levian Bell podcast. What is it called those say? No it just said weekly fifty five receptions and he also has one hundred and eighty three attempts on the ground and most of the Games. He's getting almost all the games. He's getting double digit carries. North of fifteen carries carries a game a couple games last couple of games. He's only touched the ball twenty two times against our Oakland in Cincinnati combined. And then one game Jacksonville Do you only carry the ball eight times every other game. It's like double digit numbers. Where they're trying to feed him the ball? Yeah but didn't ball pal and in Montgomery or I think Bob Pal got more than thirty carries. A thirty two carries combine this week. Yeah so I mean. That's what people point to. I don't know I mean he's not GonNa give him the ball twenty five five thousand by the way he's catching. He is targeted pretty much every game at least five times a game. There's a couple of games where there's a little less than that. But I will guarantee you that. If he scores a touchdown on Thursday night he will do a celebration where he rolls a bowling ball and then his teammates fault right and that is a lock. Of course they have to score score against the Ravens defense for that to happen finally Giants coach Pat Shurmur. So what are we doing with quarterback spot This weekend what's the story with Daniel Jones for the Miami Miami game but I I haven't been able to see Daniel move around and then we'll just see where he's at and to start the week and You know if you can't go the second thing the beat you I would start by your thing. Now I think Daniel Johns wants to play wants to start And we'll do everything he can to start and I'm just you know telling me he likes games not going to happen. I the only way I think that happens appears significant Daniel Jones significantly injured. Why would you risk it? Though while the point being is why would Peyton allies wife Abby and his mom Olivia all go to that game on Philadelphia at Philadelphia. They would never ever normally go to. Why really down the turnpike really? I could have been his last game like that. That's his last game. That's it okay. But it's also the surprise me if Daniel Jones starts this week at all. This is not a faded completed. This is the last sendoff game for Eli Manning. Because I don't think he wants. That report was wrong them. I guess I must've been who knows I mean I I think Eli sendoff. Northgate has to happen no matter. What so Dana Jones better? It'd be like he put that walking boot on limp around. Give the old man what he wants. What's what I think? Give the fans what they want. Endear yourself to giant FANEUIL. I have a sendoff game. You'RE NOT GONNA win. No No. This is important better. This is more important Jerry. The Eli Sendoff Doc. All these I bet you bunch of giant fans bought tickets to this game off the Ian rapoport report and all the ones after that saying this is going to be his last home game night. He told me he's not a plane. I'm not saying anything I'm saying. I don't think we know yet I all these. NFL insiders roll over it. Allies starting a couple of games two to four weeks about that Shurmur didn't seem so his family in Philadelphia. I'm thinking that Daniel Jones is going to be back under center. That's what I think. Do you think the the manning's got together on like I think that the Dana Jones ankle injury isn't as serious as the NFL insider team. I don't know I just feel like that. That was that was convenient for allowed to play because Daniel was hurt. But I also think that Daniel probably needed a break your to to get away from the game stand there watch the game a little bit and then come back and play this week and be reinvigorated. Wait so you're telling me that he wasn't hurt now now. I'm not saying that. I think he was definitely hurt but not her. I mean I I think he could've played. They had if they really needed him to play for whatever reason they probably could've played him but they also probably said you know. Let's let's just let them sit for a minute. So it was just because he needed a breather that he not play because he was hurt. I would say a little bit of both. That's all so. If they were in a playoff race and Daniel it was throwing throwing interceptions and fumbling the ball injury would not have kept him out and I don't think it would have no okay interesting but I think because of the way he had played in coming off a bad three interception game and also having the ankle tweak and everything else it just a convenient excuse the allow him. The SIP per week pitches okay. There's nothing wrong with that. And let Eli have a chance. And the I played I had a great first half and then they morph back into what they have been for the last five years in the second half so what happens if Peyton and the whole family shows up to this game then into watch craft games in a row. They'll know by Wednesday Thursday Friday. Whatever whether or not this is it for you like coming back home and playing at metlife has got to be an Eli send off game and this is what the fan base wants on about that? Yeah Yeah it is. We did a poll all damage. How did that come back? They all wanted to send off game. It's like seventy percent or something wants to send me the coach a lot through you. Should it done that right at the game at the end of the game on Monday night could do another one now. Do you still want to see. Eli started quarterback I guarantee was the second half way now. I I feel foolish because we gave away turning point tickets to the game. I said he Li- sendoff thought it was happening. You telling me it's not happening. I told you a chance. It's not going to happen. See Sound pretty confident ended about it but the whole family thing sound pretty confident that they all went who was his last game and everybody knows but US IAN rapoport wrong manning family right. That's what I'm I'm hearing what you're saying. I disagree sentiment for to have to happen. What you're talking about with WHO from WHO doesn't want to send off game? I don't think he wants. He doesn't WANNA play out who he is. I can't speak to that. I don't know I haven't spoke to the men do do the giants want any lie. Send off game. I doubt it why not your fans would love that five years Jim Right I think they would want it. It's not like he's GonNa be so a good whereas horseback riders the giant fan of the giants themselves the giants the giants. I don't think so. So you guys have this romantic notion that this is the way it all should happen. But this is this reality smacking you right in the face and the board. The Daniel Jones completed the better it will be for their future mode. Yeah but if he's hurt I just kind of telling me that they like this is a food as the injury now. This is what I'm here and so as I said it was. It's it's an injury that he probably could have played with if they needed him to play but they didn't need them the play and and they probably felt like and I believe that they felt like they wanted to give them a break. Take them off the field. There's a lot of crap going on and give them a chance to you. Know take take a a week off and relax watch it. Now see what he looks like when he comes back okay. We'll see what happens. I'm I for one. I'm rooting for the sendoff. Game in many many giant fans are as well especially the ones that are going to that game and can put on the number Ten Jersey One last time right big ovation tears in the eyes video video monetize video video. Montage is not going to want that. Why not adulation? When he comes back when he's done five six seven years now and they put his name up in the rafters and all of a sudden one last win? He's got a game under five hundred for his career. Another wind again back back to five hundred against the dolphins come on doesn't want to end his career loser. You want to be a leased average. He wants the send-off game. You can't tell me otherwise. That's what the man wants. I don't know we have no idea. What the hell he wants but I would think that he would want it? I know don't players WanNa play of. Of course they do. They WANNA play under the right circumstances. They don't WanNa be handed something that they didn't earn or did they feel that the people that are giving him the opportunity. That don't want really to have him do this. I just think that they have totally mentally moved on from him. And they want Daniel Jones to be the quarterback. He is the quarterback of the future. And he is the quarterback of the now ally sendoff game does not change any of that. I get it. I place one more game against the Dolphins Daniel Jones comes back who cares. You're a romantic. I get it. It's not it's not. I'm just saying that to give the giant fan. Something got the worst team in the league. They show up to these games. They'd Bitch and complain. You Got Chris Raggi raggy talking about other handing out the packer fans. They're about ready to lose it. The hate their coach hate their general manager to hate everything about the game. The sendoff game instead of an Eli bobblehead given the really light. Okay yes I hear from a marketing standpoint. I think it's smart anyway. Getting Raiders lost devils lost in the morning show with boomer Esiason Gregg Giannotti boomer and Geo as we heard of this story this shoot out in Jersey City and unfortunately tragically he stomach-turning news of detective. Joseph seals losing his his life To these animals of that of course we're holding people hostage killing hostages. It's just a it's just as bad as it gets out of a movie. It's best bad as it gets. And there's details still coming out. I know that to keep the schools on lockdown went on for hours and hours. You hear some of the eye witnesses talking about a how felt like a war zone Owning over one hundred shots being fired and just the the length of this and and tragically a father of five detective. Joseph seals loses life. You know a great detective by all Accounts County was helping getting guns off the streets. He was doing his job. He goes and sees this van that was linked to another murder and of course loses his life when he goes checks on A. Who's inside so Oh of course there's nothing you can say to make anybody feel better in a situation like this but we of course are thinking of the family the five children and the wife anybody anybody who is close to Joseph seals as a real hero who should be alive today so that was that was rough watching that coverage and this morning to careen about just another reminder of the dangers that are confronted our men and women who wear that uniform on an everyday basis here in the tri state area so thoughts and wishes out to the family and also to the Jersey Jersey City Police Department and manage? Just it's just it's awful. It's not really no words. You can say other than that you can pray for the family and just pray to God never happens again. I mean this is a guy who you know. His job is to check on this van. That's got these people in it. That he knows is connected to a murder I think about this guy wakes up to go and do his job. We all wake up. We go to our jobs. His job is when he sees this van to go check on the criminals. That are inside. You know that's real bravery that's a real hero and unfortunately finally this time it cost him his life but and it's Luckily these guys are are also dead. The people that were involved in this. And we'll see what the hell was all about because right now I mean details are still sketchy I mean this morning about exactly what the hell was going on. Who these these? These criminals minorities animals. Were what they were doing why they were where they were why they were wearing what they were wearing. Yeah so we still solid. It sounds like they were. We're getting ready for battle. It was a pipe bomb in the back right van a bunch of long guns and they had the trench black trench coats. John whatever else I mean is right here. Jersey is right here you know so anyway had mentioned that from yesterday and as you you said hopefully you don't have to deal with the things like this in the future but you know unfortunately when we've got horrible people out there and and people trying to protect us these things things Happen from time to time. And it's just it's the absolute tragedy all right eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six number to join the show. I I was trying to talk to some Giant fans out there about Neil I send off game I will say that the reactions are mixed. Yeah they don't WanNa there's no no no no no no no. They don't want it. The poll is up. We'll check check the poll so far there's still the majority of people that are voting. This sendoff still over seventy percent it. I'm telling you right now if you want to manning you sat down and you presented it to him in this way he would say absolutely not the only way that I want to be on the field as if I deserve served to be on the field. And that's that's the professional in Eli Manning. And that's the way he would react. And I think that's also why maybe Peyton Olivia and abby all went to the game in infotel feel like that's a last place you WanNa go and watch a game if you're an opposing family member. You've gotta like what happened to Patrick. mahomes girlfriend up in New England this past weekend. Yeah I mean it's ridiculous I mean I don't go rogue as as a fan anymore because of the abuse can family member of a player right. I'm thinking that they went there. Because that's kind of a signal that they probably probably believe that that would be the last game. He would play unless of course Daniel Jones is injured and or gets hurt again if he does come back and play again this week against Miami. So what if you represented the Eli like the majority of giant fans want to send you off the right way with one more home game. That's what they want not so much you know we're GonNa put you out there air for the hell of it and you don't deserve to play but rather giant giant fans want you lie we gotta give them what they want. Once this year you presented like that L.. Go for it. Yeah that's the kind of guy he is. I'll do it for the fans is what the fans want. It feels a little weird because I lost my job at his rookie. He's playing well despite his eight million. Fumbles but I'll do it for the fans okay. Decided decides eight million. Fumbles okay I I. I heard that allow would never say that either. It was nice the feds if Daniel Jones is healthy. He's playing that's it. That's the only way Eli Manning will get on the field as of he cannot go and I believe it sounds in reading and everything else that he can. He will be able to go against Miami Dolphins. And I so you're GONNA see out there that's threat. I think but I could be wrong. It's the morning show with boomer Esiason in Gregg Giannotti boomer and Geo like hey guys. Let's talk some sports So when I was out there I was like inspired by him. You know you rubbed off on me. So I thought I'M GONNA ask boomer this question if you could take the phillies roster roster right now and put them all in uniforms but it would mean that all the mets had the phillies uniform to start the twenty twenty season. I'm talking about Joe. Oh Girardi as your manager you get Bryce Harper getting re softgen our NOLITA Zack Wheeler back. You get real dog at all these guys to start the season next year. Would you do it. Can I keep Jacob degrom and the polar bear. You may not keep those two well then. I'm not doing you're not doing. I WANNA okay so I'm locked into those guys. I also like Jeff McNeil. Rosario started play better at the end of last year. There's some exciting coming back. I don't necessarily so. I know that we're as good as we were at the end of last year. Right now. We're sitting here given the fact that we don't know unless they move Seth Lugo into the starting location a a rotation. Yeah I will. I will repeat this. One last factor you one more time. Okay it would include their manager. I know I know I know Joe Girardi would be your manager. You're the the mets. The mets hired a inexperienced general manager and they hired an inexperienced manager. Now I would say the same thing in regards to the Yankees. They hired a guy out of the booth who had never ever managed before. And you would say that this past year he did a pretty good job managing but you not. Yeah yes absolutely before. You're on hoping I'd like to think that maybe Carlos Beltran can get through to guys like Familia and and Rosario and be able to connect with Dan because that's the big thing now. It's all about connecting connection and collaboration collaborating. And you know you won't be able to tell when you walk into the manager's office you don't WanNa inhale we want to ex- right exactly so I I. I hope for the best. But since I am a cynic when it comes to this in hiring inexperienced people I worry worry about the future of the mets. The immediate short term Future long-term Steve Cohen Steve Colin Future. The next two year future. Sure and hopefully the Steve Cohen cash cash starts to come in next year and you can start seeing them at a couple of players in free agency that we haven't seen them add in many many years and Evan when I gave him this research question he said. Well I'm attached to these guys now and I think that's deal as what most mets fans they now I would say like a objectively the attachment out of it. I think that the phillies now. You know top at the bottom. The addition of Deedee. And then Joe Girardi like I. I think it's a better roster top to bottom doesn't mean it's going to be a better team. I think they're more talented but he can't. So you like to see p Alonzo Jacob degrom and uniform. It's GonNa be tough enough. Seeing Zack Wheeler Girardi in D.. Gory does cesspit Iskoe with them or does he stay. Oh self go. Everybody goes man everybody monster this year you watch please please save that. Please do not let we have to have that. Cesspool will be a monster. This is going to be worse than me saying the next one thirty. WE'RE GONNA WIN Thirty Games. All right cesspit is going to be a type of monster we talking about like a like a twenty nine million dollar monster waste. or He's actually GonNa he's actually GonNa play He. He's on a last day of his career and he's coming back. You know what one thing though that I hope we see next year is the suspect is send off game at least one. Just have one of those. Let's go to George and New Jersey. Hello George Good Morning. Hey what's up guys. Bouma just stole my thunder with the suspect is running again Story Yeah swinging back on and I called last week and I said the the wilpon selling was one of the top five moments in Garrett Cole stuff cesspits swinging and running really come baby you watch yes yes all right so here. We are in December. And he's running and he's hitting playing brody did admit that he's doing baseball spall activities. So that's a little bit different than what the last time he said where. It's too early to tell right if it's only December eleventh so so right yeah. So he's your so basically what he's saying is that the. US is probably going to be ready for the season. Because if you're doing baseball activities now he's running any swinging. We'll be ready to leave your thinking about that right. I guess so. I don't know how you could be excited about it but thinking thinking about it nathen lawrence what's up Nath longtime man. Good morning thank you. Thank you for taking my call. Three topics they're going to go. We sell Pity goes to huge. And because you born on sixty sixty nine remember. Don't forget about. Yeah yeah absolutely second topic kind of relation to Major League Baseball Yankee and poor. I mean medicine but can Russia today and by Boston member. You'll have to walk the walk. You know the the one. That's good good so baseball is good so major league baseball player other than the to avoid collision and stuff like that. Good signings this off season. Now which one of those five players via today OV- lovie s signing GonNa be mets opening day your opinion I suppose one would be a dome second. I don't WANNA be. The teacher will be bungalow now then and a multi from okay. Oh Only the last one they josh from your question asks I'll give you the most likely will be Rick Portillo. I think it'll be the most likely and I hate that. I think in the National League. He's a guy who's like a good year bad your type of guy. I wouldn't mind that back end of the rotation back end of the rotating a nine the wouldn't count on to be like the third starter. No Way I think four five starter and then she can keep go in the bullpen. I would I would. I would like that I think extolling Martavis. Second most likely on your list of joining the mets. I think that is a real possibility and they were talking again last night and I would love that. That's a real center fielder. Talented Guy in center field as far as ren don't absolutely not Josh Hater. Absolutely not in Bumgarner absolutely not. I don't think the mets are in on any of those guys. I don't WanNa see I'm going to go to the braves either. which is the big rumor that you hear? You hear the brody quote in regards the CESSPIT. As I love to hear brody quote Ed. It's such Jay. It's such a yes. We all have to be smart and not assume anything from anyone try to create talent on our roster and potentially try to create impact great. What does that mean nothing?

If you've got some time brought to you by I got all day I'll be here longer than and you guys were brought to you by the Raycatena auto group hurry into the season of adventure. Sales Event at Land Rover Edison in the new land. Rover Marlboro Garrett Cole is what's happening to the Yankees nine year deal three three hundred twenty four million dollars opt out. According to reports after five full no trade clause. We'll see what these meetings bring later today. in terms of the mets will they having too much Here's Brandon Nimmo. Though he's been the focus of trade talks this was courtesy of s and why they caught up with him at some sort of a holiday party. He says no problem. Having my name floated in these deals somewhere which is a nice mature way to take some guys get bothered by Adams yes. That's a very good point brandon. Nimmo took the other tax and the phillies sign de Gregori is to a one year deal worth fourteen. So D- ended up with five years with the Yankees. A nice five year run really nice. five-year run considering. We replaced eight five year run. Yeah I mean I it was nine home runs fifty six. RBI's got settled and and then came twenty and seventy twenty five and eighty seven twenty-seven in eighty six then. He got hurt at the sixteen sixty one year. This year and they loved demanded clubhouse man is tweets afterward the emojis and everything and he was he was a leader there. He's definitely got a messed well. As average is average dipped to thirty eight this year. He'll be much better next. You're simply because he's a year removed from his Tommy John Surgery and you know he came back faster than I thought he was going to come back and he had some really a good moments for the Yankees here late this past season. Are they going to be a great philly. I really do and you know. He's on a one year deal that moves betting on himself understandably. So Oh nick meantime can bet on. Everybody plays them because all they do is lose. It's ten in a row now. They fell to the Blazers won. Fifteen to eighty seven Damian Lillard at thirty one Hassan on whiteside seventeen points fifteen rebounds Will bypass a lot of this. Because we don't have a lot of time. But here's Mike Miller who did say it's the interim head coach Games like this do do happen in the navy. Two Games Schedule you're going to have some nights where the ball just won't go in and last night. Nothing when in for the Knicks Specifically for their younger players RJ Barrett and Kevin Knox a combined two for sixteen shooting and they were seven for thirty seven from three point range. which is pretty atrocious The Knicks at Golden State. Later tonight you got the nets facing the Hornets tonight. We'll we'll have that on the fan for you at seven fifteen. You would think that eventually you throw a ball near the basket. It's going to win. And they scored eighty seven points. I mean they could. They could throw the ball fifty times towards the basket. You would think that it would go in their professional basketball players right on theory. Yeah there's the basket I've been doing this my whole life. Throw the ball towards seventeen million to do. They have about the professional basketball player. That can't make a free throw that toe and no one's guarding them all that too. That's another problem. There's a couple of highlights or lowlights in his game hilarious. CBS Sports Hours. The Barca's Moore's slipping and falling and then just throwing a ball all over the place. I mean it's it's so bad it's worse than we ever imagined. It's comically comically bad. So there at ten in a row and they play the warriors tonight. Yes all right you guys both the wars wanting tonight Noah at that I actually said when he may go win loss. This is a win win the solids if they lose this game how. How much will they add to their losing streak? Like how much worse can it get. Yeah if they lose this thing go to eleven row. Where do you think it takes awesome to I twenty in a row twenty five zero? What do you think I think they can get to twenty? Yeah I think that's a good number way round number not losing twenty straight gain easily without a doubt while they would have to lose tonight because even this ten game losing streak. They've had a couple of games. They could have won eight well in and I said they were going to go three into their next five just for the hell of it to be different But I think they'll win tonight but if they don't if they lose it a five hundred thousand warriors who have basically G. League guys play in most of the time then. Yeah they could lose twenty in a row easy elsewhere just have no saint. John's beat Brown Eighty to seventy one. But we stop a Herron SIFFORD. A ankle injury was carried off the court. You got a buzzer beater for Monmouth over Princeton. Sixty seven sixty six was going to do quickly here Adam Gaze said there. We'll be no fine or any disciplined for Levy on belly. So what are we going to do. Till he can't can't tell him he's got to stay home He also played this though he did say while bell had the flu when everything was the jets doctors and the jets. That said you can't play because you're contagious. He was asked. Bell wanted to play great but surprised thinking I could still go. It was the team that shut him down for Sunday. Not Bell himself wanted to play and they do need them Thursday night in Baltimore because now allow Powell has the flu in an ankle injury nowadays. Viewer viewer the owner boot. BOOT and lanes yeah. Would you call everybody. who were there that night? Knowing that Le Vian Bell was at the flu not GONNA do. Do you know what I mean if he felt good enough to leave and bowl in. Go to one o'clock in the morning and I'm sure he's passing contagious. Part think anybody will to fifty one right exactly takes a lot of effort right. I mean the flu There's I guess there's the stomach flu now that's not really. The flew flew. Blue flew flew flew. Yeah you're not walking down the BOOT and lanes and throwing to fifty one. It's just impossible. I think unless he's some sort of you know superhuman which I don't believe he is kings the Rangers three one and the Star shutout the devils to nothing all right. Thank you Jerry boomer and Geo on the FAN A and CBS sports network by the way could read that article. I'll posted it on the morning. Show Count Mass Breitbart free like to see Jerry's head and read about the porn. Only they should done something about that. I agree it's the morning show with boomer Esiason and Greg Jihadi boomer and Geo going to they have a listener submitted song that stock as their theme song and then we ended up playing this song. You didn't like it very much. Thought it was better than he did. Razan boom along the green out. dukes worry of the moaning rarely become the hot cocoa. We rejected you. said it wasn't good enough but now we are getting other. Oh entries here. So more people are now writing FEM- songs for the shawl hoping that they will stick for us so we've got another one for you. You're right this is is F- Fella's name is matthew rose who sent this. This is matthew rose and this is boomer and Geo theme song it would J I see Sir Sir Eh. So I actually think now is the first I I heard this. I did not hear this pride but if there was a little bit better production on this that it's something that could have been keep just a little a little bit better. What'd you think al.? I thought the vocals are a little drowned out over the music. But what I'm saying is very simple. It's got that rock feel to it. Yeah because we all rocking guys is it is true so I do believe that if he just like I dunno different recording studio different mix mix maybe hearing through my IFP. It didn't sound great. Then I told you to turn your mic off right okay. We heard the last fifteen. So you WanNa hear the beginning again. I need to hear it in here. All right fine all right so just play the beginning again. And then I'll Paul pump the speaker upright go for it the J.. Yeah in June one one. Never all right well you know. I understand the boomer and Geo on the fan the other stuff. I can't get some stuff in there. Like he could be like so so be able to tell yes like I really heard Eddie and friends. I think you did hear that dairy nouns I gotta get Rick Rubin to produce his. I'm sure he's available for this type of stuff. wasn't overall bad. It was uplifting and fell pretty good at the other one felt like it was like a seventy or why could nineties entry into a friends or something like that or one of those. That's been kind on just just fell to like Ma this releases a little bit more electric. Yeah and it's catchy and it's simple. Yeah Yeah just needs to be produced better. That's all. I don't know if he can do that or I don't know if he can sell it to some somebody else. Who can who can do it better? But what do you guys like guns and roses to me. I like it. I don't hate it. And on his soundcloud page whatever he's like there was a guitar are with like a band behind him a full band. Well at least a drummer. Okay so I'm thinking there's at least it's three piece. I guess I could tell them to remix it and see what we get. Yeah and get a little. He's got the vocals. GotTa be a little more clear and it's got it doesn't sound like like reelected here the Joe and everyone is. Is Chris. Bury digitally done well and this is just nine. This is sort of the sound. Quality is a little crawl. He's listening right now. He says tell them I recorded in my living room on my macbook. Okay so this is what I'm saying. Step it up. If you step it up we actually like it. If you step it sounds better. We could hear the vocals then we might actually use that. Occasionally maybe a little harmony true harmony. Not yet you overdubbed. Yeah Yeah Yeah. So see what he can do. That's not you told. Let me was similar to the other one. Before I heard that's similar to that one at all but the other one I can understand the words I can understand the lyrics. I hear it I can buy into it it but I don't like the melody of the first one. I picture a drunk clown at a keyboard when he starts picture drunk. Clowns it down like Too Far off by the way what. I don't picture that at all I actually okay. Here's some here's some real stuff all right so stepping up what's naming it. Matthew rose or something give us another one. I don't want any excuses about your equipment. We actually liked it. We played it. You got some talent there and we'll see where this thing goes all right. It's the morning show with boomer Esiason in Gregg regionality boomer and Geo Brian Cashman was not going to be denied. You might get some more news a little bit later today. With Brett Gardner. It seems like reporting narrowly from Andy Martino says as such and also you gotTa keep an eye on the other big chip to fall. which is Anthony Random? Where does is he going to think met? Fans have had enough of seeing you know. Zack Wheeler go to the Phillies Garrett Cole go to the Yankees I mean Rendong. Getting out of the division and out of the National League is probably something that they're all rooting for. But you know the Yankees had passed on a couple of guys the big ticket guys last few off seasons and part of that might have been because they knew that they were going to go. Oh all in on Garrett Cole. In the way that the season went in the postseason went this last year. Brian Cashman was saying no way. Am I seeing him in a uniform. Other than the PINSTRIPES I. Let's go to Dan. In carteret I referenced him before and there he is Dan. Good morning how are you. I'm good thanks. How are you guys doing doing great right Dan? What's on your mind today man got a bunch of things to say. don't do a theme song please. All right that's the first quick quick thing that's more. These are a listener submitted theme song. Stan we're not doing them. If someone comes up with a good one we gotta listen. You know I mean you got to admit that the last one was better than the first one at least they're getting better. I understand that I'm just saying I. I understand their listener Created and I'm not trying to disarm the listeners. And what they're doing. But I just hope you guys don't go with a theme song or the unique cool cool things about your show is Eddie figuring out a song and being original with that not doing a theme song like the other shows all right very good Dan all right what else I heard you guys mentioned me me During our number two and I appreciate you giving me credit about my take on the Yankees. They don't win the world series however us. We're both using the wrong terminology when the Yankees don't win the world series. It's not a losing season. It's not a disappointing season. It's a total failure. Okay and I got Eddie in the room. I heard him getting Dixon about how it's been a bunch of losing season ten years in a row. I got five syllables for Eddie. Nineteen eighty six but I can take pleasure in a year where he kind of fought and kind of had a good year this year. That was enough for me but for you guys. If you don't win it all. It sucks obvious right. I WANNA share my take on Didi and call. If I can't go I'm disappointed with the You know he's everything. We could have wanted After replacing ACING jeeter. He's put up better numbers over the years. He had a struggling year last year because he was injured. I mean we watched them re-sign Gardner and CC over the past few years ears and they were not performing so well except for Gardner's career year last year. I don't get why they don't bring back. He got a one year deal from the phillies. Why wouldn't the Yankees off from one of the emergence of gleyber Torres at shortstop? May You last year have a lot to do with this and to horace back and they're trying to save money in other areas so they can fifteen million dollars. They don't have to pay him. When you gotTa shortstop there you got on your under control for four five what? It is a difficult decision. Asian and I appreciate the Yankees doing that and making a decision. That is tough on their on their part because look a lot of times teams hold onto players way too long anyway. Yeah so I don't know I would like to see them gets up and for him. That's for sure yeah. I think they should've kept twenty nine years old in regards to Col- I'm not super thrilled. I that that take may surprise you. You know I'll be super thrilled. I'll be thrilled with the Yankees. Get to a world series and I'll be super thrilled when they finally finally win a world series because these big money contracts have not paid off. We've seen happen CC. Hey Rod wow wait a second but you can't can't say that they haven't paid off that off season when they went all in with the bath. You Mark Sharon. Aj Brunette. I mean that one title. Okay one I understand understand you got one but you got one and there aren't a lot of teams that are out there repeating anymore. Dan and it's very very difficult to get one and it's also even more difficult to get a couple so the fact that they they won that first year when they went all in to me is it was great now. You wouldn't you wanted more sure but you can't tell me that you didn't pay off. Plus he was a model citizen in a pros entire time when he was here. I understand that I'm not saying they weren't good ball players but I mean the be all end-all has to win world series. Is what you pay all this money. And Stanton's been a bus so far always the money they pay them. I understand why they had to get cold. There's another team would have got him. So I get it and the Yankees got the money but you know he better deliver and there better be some multiple world series in years has to come because one ain't enough for all this money. Well I mean I you get one. You'll be really really out. Well you also forget what it does as for the Yankee Universe when it comes to selling tickets when it comes to buying merchandise and all that kind of stuff that goes into the totality of what the Yankees are you know keeping yes network on your on your cable system in all everything that goes into it. It's more than just the player on the field. Feel that everything that he brings to the team and remember when they signed a Rod a-rod backed out of his contract to and they've resigned Guzman. Hank was running the team for about a month there and they resigned him after he opted out of his contract. But then we won one world series with a-rod but I would say leading up to that world series. It was all about a Tehran era being on the Yankees the most popular player on the most popular team. Now you get now. You're going to have what I would think many would consider. Look I don't because I have Jacob degrom on my team and I think he is the best pitcher in baseball but you have now one of the most popular players and pitchers on your team the most popular teams. So there's more to than the three hundred around twenty four million dollars are paying him then just him himself. It's everything that comes along with that and you go and win a championship. Everybody will tell you the influx of cash that you get when you're in the world series I but I am with Dan though you know. They've spent a lot of money and have not won with that money. And what made this team. This particular team. So likable over. The last two two to three years is that a lot of it was surrounded or coming from players that were not making these big money contracts at guys like talk men and guys like Mike Ford and Aaron Judge Gary Sanchez. That are still on their. You Know Pre free agent contracts and Didi Gregorius who came in seamlessly and filled in for filled in for Derek jeeter. So it's like a likable group of guys. Now all of a sudden that's starting to change now. Now you got big money guys come in the air and you have two of them. I'm at the top of the food chain. Yeah I think that it changed with the stand deal I don't to me Cole is a bad guy. I mean I know the evil empire fire stuff is gonNA come back out. I think that the twenty seventeen team that was so likeable and didn't it was all the kids Joe Girardi at last year and then coming back against the Indians Indians and everything else and then when they went out and got stanton then it changed so this is just the Cherry on top of the Yankee the next one God phys Dale and Perry because they have all could could I forget acts and all that stuff in the in the in the basketball world and they were gonNA bring in all these different free agents and all this other stuff because they they're friends with these guys. I wonder how much the new pitching coach had to do with acquiring Garrett Cole apparently at least some of the reporting was that you the way that the Yankees use their analytics in the pitch that they gave him you know which is involving. Their new. Pitching coach was something that was appealing to him. Now would he have taking fewer dollars because of their pitching coach in there. I don't know that's all matters right. So yeah but also apparently sees a bath. The Andy Andy. Pettitte were big parts of this as well as opposed to like John. STARKS and Allan Houston I mean like the the point being that the Yankees always get the guy that they want right the most maybe not maybe not in a trade but when it comes to free agency and they want to put their money where their mouth is and they focused on Garrett Cole they they they get the guy that they want. Yes absolutely absolutely. It's GonNa carmine and West Babylon car. Mine Hey guys listen. I got some bad news. They're not sure if you've heard but what you know just it it's just been. It's been snorkeling this morning. And Ashok Pity his foot off in an interesting twist. Though there's too much bone to heal the trucks fit right out the back. I I appreciate it all over that. I'm surprised Haymond in that. That's probably Yankee Fan swiping back at the met Fan. I'm like why why. Why do we have to swipe at each other? I I really you should be more pissed off de Gregori is is on the phillies on the phillies right. Exactly that's that's the thing that's Bumgarner go to fricken raves and renaissance spills a possibility for the national. Maybe some bumgarner goes to the Astros now. Oh boy that's true. They're going to need somebody. Yeah Pivot as they say Patent Manhattan. What's going Pat? How's it going? Good Morning Guys Japan. Grand what do you got for us. Good good I want. They real quick before I get to my point I keep Jerry's be getting a little snarky. You guys and stuff like that high rise construction. The Union High Rights Instruction you ever want to punish his send them with me let him do a little rest instruction for two week he'll be back their tail between flakes. They realizing what he how could he got it. boomer's interested in that. Yeah so we we might have to. I mean he you know he purposely did not want to come to our Christmas. I didn't tell you I know it's a sort of anti team move. Yeah it was. Put me he'll be back with his tail between his leg. All Right Pad in my point is I love the charcoal for one. Yeah it's a lot of money but every time just booming right on the head. Every time he puts you say stadium for the be packed that they can make their money back expose. That's one to Bouma you. I heard you say before which is very possible about Jacob degrom being the best pitcher in baseball is my wealthy a big but I would I would like to know I like you compare the two Garrett Cole and Jake Graham I would like to hear their playoff stat competitive. He's been on better daguerre calls on a better team when he was with the pirates hours playoffs right. Exactly I mean we in the Houston Astros. I understand that but these than astros are a great club. You don't Jacob. DEGROM can only do what Jacob degrom can control every time he goes out on the mound and ninety eight percent of the time Jacob. degrom gives me as a met fan a chance to win every frigging game right. Yeah he does he goes back back to back. Cy Young Guys Austin what he's not. He's not a drama. There's no drama around him. There's no nothing I mean. He just is a baseball pitcher. It just goes out and does his job. He's not bowling. You know with the flu. You know he's not hoisting threes or can't block a puck. I mean all he he does is go out and does his job. Yeah you know what coal actually I don't think people realize just how Great Jacob degrom is. This is me people do realize of of course they want a guy is a superstar. GotTa remember though when Cole was on the pirates that's when we were on their run with actually playing well and he he did so he those three straight playoff appearances to those were just wild card games and he did pitch so the first one wildcard game twenty thirteen pitching that one but he did make to starts in the NFL DSL year at two four five year but then he pitched the wildcard game in two thousand. Fifteen was not good. Five innings. Four runs enact game so he did actually have postseason starts like it seems like eons ago that the pirates were actually in the playoffs but he did have suppose stars there you put him on a great team like the Yankees as you put him on a great point the Astros. He's going to have really good numbers he was thirty. Five and ten with the Astros. Five playoff wins and he had six hundred and two strikeouts breakouts and he's getting John Seasons he's going to tell everybody on the Yankees just how they cheated. That's what he's also going to say they were doing. That's interesting right. Yes yeah I think you. Although he's not he doesn't he strikes me as a guy that is I could tru hardcore baseball guy. You know what I mean. He's a baseball guy. Here's a baseball guy. And he's got his money so he wasn't on the two thousand seventeen astros though he was a you know eighteen in one thousand nine. He was not on the two thousand seventeen astros but we still think there was something going on with the whistle in this past. Lcs Right while the Yankees do devil whistler. Little with stop whistling Chris in Bloomingdale. What's going on Chris? Chris what's up man I go. Hey Hey oh so here. I have a hypothetical for you so I WANNA say I'm GonNa Miss Daisy and I like call but I wanNA talk about Girardi Let's say the Astros didn't cheat in two thousand nineteen. Do you think the Yankees go on to win it and do you think if they do they keep Girardi. You mean two thousand seventeen two thousand seventeen. I'M GONNA hang up man. I mean if they would have won the world it seems Barger Joe Girardi right. It seemed like the the decision had been made like and then them coming back against the Indians and made it a harder decision. They go all the way to game seven in the Al.. So yes it seemed like you know Brian Cashman was hell bent on nine moving on from Joe Girardi. But you can't tell me if they had gone to the world series in one eighth that he would have fired him. There's no way all or that could have made Joe Girardi Gherardi even more impossible to deal with from the front office's standpoint right remember the whole thing. We didn't do review play or Cleveland. Yeah that whole deal so you get back at apologize and he should have done it and you know. He's a good dude man. He's just a hardcore baseball due to and you're right. He probably runs the ship the way that he wants. Is it to be run and you bet you better hope that caused Beltran's going to make this can be interesting when they play the phillies. Nineteen Times. This year it's going to be Beltran. Beltran versus girardi making decisions. That's GONNA be interesting watching those games. Yes No of course lots of experience no experience. Just like the mets like it right. It's unbelievable unbelievable. All right it's the morning show with boomer Esiason and Gregg Giannotti boomer and Geo keep hearing you say and they got an inexperienced match or they got an experienced commander and he said right before the break. Before you like Joe Girardi gets Carlos Belcher angry. I feel that you asked me about an hour ago did did I want the phillies roster over the mets roster which would include the coaching staff. And I said if I can keep if I can keep Jacob degrom and people hunt so I would but I mean I just I worry about the inexperienced in two of the most most influential parts of a baseball team and that would be your general manager. Who is obviously you know trying to keep fluid to the top? But I don't know whether or not he can because constraints that are placed on him by ownership and number two. You're bringing in an inexperienced manager. Now I know Carlos knows baseball better than anybody but this is all about that. Keyword collaboration collaboration and then the other keyword is communication. And I think they want a guy that can that can actually try to break through to some of the Latino players on the on the roster and. I think that that will help. I don't know whether or not you know making double switches and wonderful guy out and all this other stuff is going to be the strength of one Carlos Beltran and only time will tell though is that in our division. Where would you rank the mets right now? Fourth is that fair I mean with the with the addition of Joe Girardi Zack Wheeler d rory's over to the phillies right. Now and you'll lose wheeler blur on your own team right and you're not really adding anybody just yet. They'll probably either put logo in the starting rotation because you know he wants to be a starter or the poor Solanki Beluga in the in the in the in the bullpen. I I don't know what to tell you I. There's not much changing from which was a very exciting team other than you lost. One of your better pitchers. Yeah you just gotTa hope that. Steve Cohen changes those things starting as early as next year. Jerry is back. He's got the update. What's going on Jerry brought to you by Paul Conti Anti Cadillac one mile west of the metric on sunrise highway in Freeport and the big news is of course Garret called the Yankees on this mess of nine year deal worth three hundred and twenty four million dollars a full no trade clause and reports say opt out after five years as well? His numbers speak for themselves through to an era of two point five old last year. Three hundred and twenty four strikeouts last year and in the postseason one. Four games pitched thirty six and two thirds innings and so- Garrett Cole who the Yankees is drafted once upon a time will now be a Yankee imaging Carlos Beltran and the mets. He was with S. N. Y.. As you can imagine he says a couple of things is in terms of what what he is doing here and with this team he was discussing and wanting to be creative during spring training. Do things a little bit differently when you get into the same routine by doing the same thing over and over and over so we have to be creative in how we do things in a group of guys. Now that we're working on setting up our camp and I WANNA make sure that while we set up our camp Guys on the job but at the same time I want people to be wishing their time creative creative also. He didn't say. Remember when Mickey Callaway Yep Creative communicating creative and impact three CS of the mets. Yeah yeah creating creating impact rating impact. You GotTa do that. Impact Raiders to that in a couple of minutes saw. He did discuss how he wants the coaching staff to take care of his players. You know it's not like Mickey callaway. It wasn't like we're going to love all of our players like they've never been loved. You know nothing like that but He is something along those lines. I WanNa make sure that we support or the players we provide the players. They need And we ask Osiris. We need to understand that. We're here to serve the players. Serve Pliers Man. Do you ever get the sense when you were a player. That like your coaches like were serving with Sam White serving boomer Esiason I no. He was not serving me but he was trying to put me in the best place of position possible To get the best out of me I agree I. I guess we're saying just just in different ways we're trying to say the same thing. It's just the way that they say it. It sounds ridiculous. Yeah he was asked about The Astros signed stealing stuff honestly on Houston situation. I don't have any common You know For the respect the process that have been happening. I have no comment about the science dealing situation. I will not be answering any more questions about cheating great The phillies did sign Didi Gregorius. One year fourteen million dollars To the basketball last has not yet the Nixon Portland in theory. Supposed to play a game. They got buried one fifteen to eighty seven as they fall to four and twenty former. Nick and current Blazer Carmelo Mellow Anthony who had sixteen points. We were ready to go. We was locked in Since the smallest shooter was locked in a Damian lure logs crappy team. We know. We're going to win so we locked ourselves in all true. Yeah all true. Yes Louis scrimmage it. Looks like a scrimmage out there a lot of open shots and Damian Lillard hit a lot of them. Eight of twelve from three nine of fifteen overall here was Mike Miller. The interim coach Lillard made it impossible for the fact that we were. We're not making shots. And he was it. It kind of spiraled us a little bit in a direction. We really didn't want to go. In Combination Samantha Geniuses. Mike milic the Knicks. Seven for thirty seven. What is diagnosis? Amazing shots and we were not the really a difficult spot for this guy taking over this team. So whatever the Knicks play at Golden State tonight couple of teams really struggle in the next four and twenty Golden State five and twenty on the season so far also of note. You had the warnings. beat the wizards won fourteen zero seven. Joel embiid twenty to ten and six sixers dropped the nuggets. Ninety seven. Ninety two in the heat outscored for the Hawks and overtime one. Thirty five. One twenty-one Miami Twenty to nothing run from down six late in the fourth to a big lead in the overtime number one Louisville and number four Maryland Orlands suffered upset losses. Last night saint. John's beat Brown by eleven. But Mustafa Aharon suffered an ankle injury not sure of the severity. There you've got. Russ Rutgers and Wisconsin coming up later tonight jets head coach. Adam Gates met the media yesterday. He was asked about the seriousness of the flu. The flu bug that Lebanon Bell. Actually Yeah Yeah Yeah. They said he was still. I'm not a doctor. I'm just going off. What they they told me? What does he go one? Does he go. I'm sick and tired of talking about this earlier today. That's what he said about Ryan his injuries. Tall Guy by the way Ryan sales having a bounceback so good football as anybody going to get a nice contract extension. That's for sure I. I can't imagine that the titans are GonNa let him walk out the door now going back to Marcus Mariota anytime. I don't see it now. He's actually completing seventy two percent of his passes who not bad two hundred sixty four yards a game. Yeah well here's Le Vian Bell. He was asked About the bowling thing and he says yeah it was pretty good night for remain to one off the cygnus to the music. You want to know. Thank goodness no. Don't go to fifty one one. Seven ten split now said it took him four games to uh get the two hundred fifty one yards this year. Five Times Games. Yeah Cowboy game is when he finally hit oh they suck He was estimates. Had the chance to be at his best this this year with the jets honestly no and I think as being a new system guys of fronts new coach and he would would continue on the theme is always been patient but the honestly no no. No when I do know be back to the people used to seeing and now he's going to have to swimming. He's healthy and good to go which seems like he is. They need to play on Thursday night. Because Bilal Powell has the flu and an ankle injury as well. It looks like even if he's healthy from the flu. The ankle will keep him out of that Game Gel In the unlikely a situation where they actually win the game Thursday night and the thing that I'm going to be watching for is whether whether or not Sam Darnold is gonNA stand in there. That's what I'm looking for. I don't WanNa see seeing goes that I want to see anybody nervous. I WanNa see somebody that's going to stand in there and you know l.. Play like you know you belong there and don't be intimidated. Have you done games there. Have you done. This is that atmosphere nuts is crazy. Now it's really crazy. I mean this. Is You know you remember. They used to bring out right Lewis. Dan neff dance in the smoke. And all that stuff and you know anytime. It was a prime time game and they were a good team. It was a crazy atmosphere so I would think Thursday night jets Lamar Jackson and everything else. It's going to be crazy and by the way. Did you see what Earl Thomas said about opposing teams trying to tackle Lamar margin. Not going for his legs more now or something that we said yes and now he's complaining he's saying you know Oh yeah guys are going for his legs as well. Of course they're going first legs once he once he crosses the line of scrimmage image. He's a running back. Sure you know guys are having a hell of a time trying to tackle him. They asked Lamar about those comments about his teammate. And what does teammate with. Because it's he's alluding to that they're trying to cheat sharing right When an actual? They're not the they just can't tackle and stuff together right and he even said he goes. Look I I don't necessarily know that I. I think they're just trying to play football to try to tackle me and I'm trying to get away from them for him. If you got Lamar Jackson. I'm going to try to create a case here for the jets Cuban. This game closed Norwich from nuts. Amar Jackson's got squad situation going on now. He missed a couple practices and now he said he was one hundred percents said but he's still missing practices on into report Quad Wad Wad Quad Quad Quad. He got the jets with one of the best run. Defenses in football right They run the ball. The time the Baltimore Baltimore Ravens. You'd be able to shut that whole thing down. We're talking short week football Short week football coming back home. You know the Ravens have been on this. They had the niners and at the buffalo bills. Playoff teams look ahead spot. Look ahead spider. They play week sixteen. Don't all right then but it's not the jets hold on. I'll find that maybe this will bolster my argument. Maybe we won't you know boomer you while you're already what's at school already All right I've got a moment of the day if you need. No no no they they play the browns they hate the browns look ahead spots ahead spot spotting revenge spot spot for what because browns beat them earlier. Dry It's a look ahead. Revenge spot disarray. And they've got a country bumpkin his head coach the last week. A look ahead revenge. They're thinking Brown's look ahead revenge. But that's like ten days away where we look ahead because it's short week football now now when the jets no that Lamar Jackson has this quad do they go for the quad. When they go to hit him heard? Yeah I think no matter where you hit them. You could hit hit something that's hurting. Everybody's got something that's both. Do they say the defensive coordinator how crazy busy go one hundred percent the Quad Quad Gaikwad Gaikwad controversy bell. He goes off inspired by that. What do you think nothing? I think we should save this tape. And we've when it's forty forty one seven not buying it. Listen crazier things have happened. We had that one week. What two weeks ago where Washington? Who are the three that you said? We should've done the parlay was Washington. One Yup who else there were three stupid game lammi Denver about what the jets murdered the cowboys. I remember that one was an ass whooping. Yeah it wasn't as long as they played great Sam Darnold last time national TV ghosts redemption redeemed. Sam Darnold National TV Redemption Game Redemption. Game Look ahead game look ahead spot spot. Yep I mean sure football. You're we show. There's a lot of things going on. You're saying I'm thinking it's all lineup for Raya jets upset. I you know what it would be fun if they beat them without thinking about a fourteen and a half points. Where would you go right? Now if you had money down Act Raymond's Jetski to fourteen and a half and a short week now. The only thing I would say to the contrary of what I am saying is that when they played the cardinals a much inferior team team to them not only took him. San Ocala Moore is good. No that was a close game Should not have been okay. So perhaps you're right. I'll still take the Ravens Marmot. You remember the game when the Shawn Watson and Houston was going in there and it was going to be the big matchup between two Shana. That car Yeah well they lost forty forty one seven. I can't get too tough defenses. He just had the niners and the bills back to back they had to go to the rams and was going to be the big thing with Sean mcvay and the rams defense and Aaron Donald and all of that stuff. Yeah they were on the road and and the rams are playing well and all that stuff right now they go Baltimore one forty five to six. Tell you what me new breakfast bet. I'll give you you take the ravens minus sixteen and a half. I'll give you two points. I'll take chore without a Doubt Breakfast bed done for Friday for Friday. This one's got thirty one. Ten written all over four to seven something like that jets is what you're saying. No no no ravens jet fans understand. Your team has beat up. You're missing Jamal Adams. He's playing right GAMETIME DECISION I. I said off he plays. They're winning. Emotional leader now emotional leader. Yeah do you watch out man. See Him flying. Over the line of scrimmage like Troy Paula Malo grabbing Lamar Jackson right on his quad. Squeezing it We shall see a defense that in the last who now are Games Baltimore Defense thirty four forty forty. He's seven fifty seven sixty points in the last five games and what I saw in the way. They handled Josh Allen last week. Now they're going to be home. Good luck I hope the jets win. I do see it's a look ahead spot. Revenge this Friday thinking browns all time guy. He had the browns back into the jets suck. We can just beat them. Easily is closed at the Lamar Jackson practicing. That's how disrespected the they're just totally disrespects. Kinda like the fact that we have now taken short week football and made it a part of our minority here. Just what I'm trying to do here. Basically is Asia shove interested in without having to spend money on then mowing me any money in your in your pool at at your in your your survivor pool. I'm thinking this is the game that you gotta take the Ravens. Yeah I just gave you a reason why I'm not taking if you'd like fifty reasons when you're over for thinking this thing man I don't know because there's other Games you take Pat's bengals saving you. Know the jets went to the bengals and couldn't score a touchdown and they only they settled for field goals last week to except for one touch predict this. This is a DC NFL not the NFL can happen in the NFL. I Know Wink Martindale. Who as the defensive coordinator of the Ravens is going to say we can intimidate the jets? That's that's that's that's his whole thing this week. All right. We'll see six. I'm I'm giving you sixteen and a half. Yes Rangers lost to the Kings Three one star. Shut out the devils to nothing and Wayland baptist. There was a kid on that team. That's got boomer. Toil told me earlier scored one hundred points. Jj Tiber fiber. Yes he shot. Sixty two of the teams seventy seven shots. Sounds like James not quite because yes. That's a very good comparison time now for moment almond of the day brought to you by Resorts World Casino in Queens with over sixty five hundred games this is how NYC rolls the inside.

I'm in trouble. I'm ready to be hurt again. I'm so I'm so far deep into this shit now I I was so fine like four four. Maybe three days ago I was fine and then all of a sudden I sent out one little tweet and I was just like Whoa. What's what's going on? We have no news here. Nothing going I need like a rumor report and you know what God did he. I got everything now. We avalanche reports every second. I can't have fucking move without getting a Heyman tweet. A Sherman tweet something that says the Yankees are more and more all in on Garrett Cole and now I'm drowning and reports and I can't I can't breathe and it's a great thing but it's so scary because like a month fest for a month from now I don't know if I'm GonNa be alive. I missed this feeling. I mean even last. offseason Harper Machado ought never felt like it got to a frenzy. Oh this is different this is it. Has it been since probably off-season where they got ellsbury Beltran McCain like obviously Coenen offseason Ellsbury saying like in terms of like them going after whatever but they they haven't really been in the mix of this much for top dollar are free agents in. We're feels like forever and there. I like probably a month ago. was of the mindset that Garrett Cole Yankee I thought it'd be like the Corinthian I just like you won't be Yankee. I'm just not even think that he's going to be Yankee so I don't have to be disappointed. He'll go to the angels who go somewhere whatever. Don't even want that on my mind right now dare were coal in. My mind is in pinstripes or anything less than that will be an utter and costal disappointment. I'm terrified I'm Jim terrify right now and like I'm a happy terrified because because I am now like my expectations are through the roof like they. Let's go through every yard. Let's go through every report because nothing better to do. This is a Yankees bacchus. So this is fucking flood you with Garrett Cole we've been stalking Garrett Cole we're trying to find every little bit of Garrett Cole I got people you never know you ever get DMZ from people who were just like. Oh my buddies. The friend knows this more than ever know. or it's the worst. I get it with betting tips. A lot to my buddy's friend's cousin's said that this team's plane was two hours late that shit. I hate that chip because like it might be true and like sometimes like someone guesses right and it's like I don't know where he had any idea here but I got a few of those and I like any of that Shit but all star with this athletic article and it basically says that the Yankees are again making him a priority which I never really heard before until a couple is go where they're just cashman. We usually just works in the stealth mode. Like that's how we know Paxton deal came out of fucking nowhere for recency example but for the most part court whenever you think. He's doing this doing that but they seem to. Just throw that out. And they're just letting the whole world know like we're trying to spend as much money as humanly possible career goal imprint stripes. So I was that article which may which he's priority than Joel Sherman's article said that Cece Cashman Boone and that Blake all flew out to California to meet him so we're already different than Machado and Harper Harper was never real thing harper was like a Yankee fantasy right. We're all these Castro himself was like where we're GONNA play right. Where are we going to play them? And I don't think his personality. They wanted his personality in that clubhouse with Aaron Judge is as you know glacier tours and I don't think they ever thought it was going to fit so they never even sat down with him like that was just never even realm of possibility that it was never a discussion Machado. I think the biggest deal there was that obviously padres offered a ton of money but the all the executives were split. There wasn't like an all in like Yep we need this guy he had some personality question. Oh Yeah Oh for sure for sure. Yeah so I think there was a lot of questions there. There there are no question marks surrounding Garrett Cole. You know what you're going to get. You're getting an absolute workhorse. A guy drafted originally. They basically gave a blank check check to and he said I'm going to Ucla for college out in California where juries from which is a problem that surrounding us now is this California thing but it's just feels different because they're all in the they weren't flying out to go meet Machado and Harper. They made Machado come visit them. I'm in the Bronx. And that's the same thing where they didn't go out there. They're going out before the winter meetings start to go meet with Garrett Cole feels a lot different since the hold Cassisi joining them is just fantastic. I love then but then I saw the article today said that he didn't mention being there. was there yeah. I don't know if it's the same thing at police. The top ace on the market from the West Coast. Like oh man. He's GonNa WanNa stay home. We'll come to New York right. Take the black guy sees. It hasn't been announced it but I have a feeling that he's been hired to the special adviser role. I thought I thought that wasn't wasn't announced was officially knows. Maybe I'm maybe I'm imagining. I don't think he like. I thought thought he got brought on us some shit but who knows he has whether it hasn't been announced. I don't remember if I've seen in print but I think he's officially onboard. But maybe they don't want officially announce it because they want him involved with this shit and talking to them and persuading him. But I guess it doesn't matter because these free agents you can actually talk to them no matter what even if you're punishing look there's no. There's no tampering or anything. Anything he retires. He's retired or did he officially like do his retirement papers or think so. Yeah so CICI's involved with us whether whether you see it it or not map lake. I love that. He's involved. Map Lakes analytic or guru. WHO's GONNA save us? He's our savior cashman boone. They're all in here and I like that. Also cashman is he flew out there and then he's flying back either after the meetings on hearing this on Wednesday on Thursday Thursday. He's flying back because he's doing his repelling thing from a building on Friday which always does Those those pictures and videos are always great. And then he's flying back on Sunday to San Diego for the winter meetings so he's just is going back and forth he hasn't care this cash dot. He's in he's in cash Kadota right now so you have all those guys out there and then we get the Heyman tweet Yankees meet with top top target Air Coal in so cal. Today this was on Tuesday. They are all in. That's all I need to tweak. It ended there once. I said they are all and I'm like okay. But then again in Heyman likes to do these tweets where he says nothing. It's incredible I will say though a little bit more than what usually but here the rest of the normal hardly be like they're they're interested. Yeah no shit. The rest of the tweet is where if you're writing a college paper and you're at nine hundred sixty words you need to hit a thousand and and this is like we're heyman gets into but having been revoked rebuffed after drafting him and offering him basically a blank check he wants Ucla. Instead they are very concerned he may prefer angels dodgers. New York will meet which prospered tomorrow. That was all meaningless. Strasbourg matters. I guess that was but everyone said that but but we knew the check thing. Ucla and that he's ever knows that he's a California -fornia carrying heart and then Dan Federico this is about the Strasbourg multiple reports have stated. The Yankees are meeting with Stephen Strasburg in California. Tomorrow he means today. It was Wednesday while that is indeed the case one person with now the situation call the due diligence and that he may he would put the odds at eighty percent of returns DC. I believe that whole heartedly. Also I think Dan was very spot on with all the corporate stuff last year so everything he says DC really. I think I would take as fact I have never really considered transfer part of this. I mean they are all in on on coal. I think I'd do. Jones is a perfect way to describe it. How they're meeting with Strasbourg I think he just wants to go back. To Bryn don't is the guy who leaves DC whether he goes to L. A.. or the dodgers rent only gonNA be Ellsbury two point. Oh by the way Doesn't care about it. Something like that is the naturally just show gifted though it's a a little bit better like he'll be better. I mean Ellsbury had zero productive years early with the Yankees go. First Year wasn't terrible. Don't have a couple I think goodyear's like more burberry's injury prone the whole thing doesn't care about baseball contract. He already one is world series like I could see five years from a team hating that. They paid in Anthony. Don't yeah I could see that. I'm hoping the dodgers on him. Because that would take them out of the Garrett Cole sweep six and it just give us and the angels. 'cause I there's part of me that I don't know how much money the dodgers could possibly have. But I I mean to my knowledge they just pay anyone ever checked like their payroll because it's like even though they add like fifty million or a hundred million every off season somehow their payroll. It doesn't seem to go up to their payrolls will be four hundred million. It makes absolutely no sense. Their payroll is not four hundred million dollars but like honestly share today like pick it see them signing ending rent donut hole and they're lose again in the world saying they'll have one hundred ninety seven million like we'll be their payrolls and the win one hundred six games in the loose in the or something at that. But I'm hoping we're GONNA Dodge. That will take them out. They just can't sign them both anymore. Tino take any report or any Martino grain assault feel like he he was one of the people. Saying Machado is a done deal with the Yankees. He was one of those. I don't know any more TS S. Y.. But he said the Yankees Want Garrett Cole so belly they have Wanna the top free agent this battle in years between and then he went on this. This is why this next part is why I really like what's going on Zack. Wheeler is. He's a guy in the last three or so years that the Yankees would get that with disappoint fans but also be like. Hey we got someone that's cool like he's new and he it could be like our three starter where it's like. That's not gonNA fucking do it. I need a number one guy that will instill fear into every opponents is when he's on the mound for Game One one of the AFC with the world series. Whatever it is that guy is that shows flashes? He'll have three starts in a row. Sevens one run ten K and you're like Whoa. What was that then? He'll get hurt. And then I'll come back and have a five year. That's in a nutshell. The whole Zack Wheeler sweepstakes is very funny to me. Just for the reason of the whole thing of him getting one hundred million dollar contract wherever he's probably GonNa get he's just such a slap in the face to the mets because every team in baseball is basically saying we know this guy's good we know this guy's is good let's just get him in a competent organization. He'll be worth the money. It's like everyone's saying like got talent like he's being wasted with the mets because they don't know how to do shit but let's just get them like some actual coaching and we'll make can very good. Yeah I was actually having a conversation white sox Dave who was in the office. We'll get into the White House in the office and little bit. Probably like the first time I've ever had a conversation where we both awfully were common. Didn't like each other But I was just like talking about the white sox wheeler with him. He's like what's the deal wheeler like what is like. Get Him Out of New York and he'll a probably like a really good. Just like Alan Hitching coach. People who know what they're doing people who don't like who like when a guy and he's an X-ray they give him an X-ray x-ray championship like the Houston Astros. Not My mind's eye on candidate. Oh no question. I don't know what the white sox cooking. They're basically what I'm getting at. Is that the Yankees have no interest in wheeler and he's going to sign like by the time you're listening to this side because everyone saying it's imminent so like I'd love to sign for the winter meetings start. Yeah but that's why you're not hearing an inkling of reports of the Yankees are interesting. I don't think it's like a cashman. Ninja thing he just wants. They're just like yeah. You're fucking three starter on this team. We're going after the big fish that's it we're only selling for that. Like people will worried. Like they're going order and wheeler maybe a bumgarner on a cheaper deal no. I don't think that's the way different this all this feel so different. And maybe we're getting played and you can laugh Edison two weeks or three weeks or a month whatever coal signs but this right now feels a lot different. You should be very excited. If you're a Yankee fan so I liked it. There teams in on wheeler are the usual suspects of the second year. The White Sox who have or having a nice offseason like me yeah they may have over paid for ground L.. But if you're the white sox no one wants to fuck and played played in south side Chicago so you got to overpay for doll. And they brought back a brave for fifty million. I like those moves. Those are nice moves I think the white sox could be and then the reds went out and unsigned STOCKISTS and I think they're gonNA I think they'll get massages can play second year little weird weird visual fat. I know I've always liked dacas and right field at a red. Reds Ballpark is quite short. Good place for to go to. I think dog end up with both those guys so you. Those teams The reds the white sox they're in on wheeler they're trying to make some moves good for them. I like I like the reds next year. As a dark horse there on rumored to be treating for a pitcher to relax article they got they got a good three in Bauer of custodio and and sunny. If Sonny's and he's GonNa keep doing this shit. There was something it was like. Oh like the Indians could pull off this block. I forget what it was but like. They're in the next. Yeah for sure. So those those are the teams that are in wheeler her. And that's where it should be. I don't want any wheeler and the Yankees. I love all that no wheeler. That's that would have fewer than me if we ended up with that but I do think he'll end up being good but but I don't want to take a chance right. I Want Dick Eric. One hundred million dollars for him Then we had another Heyman tweet. This came today this Wednesday Yanks had a quote unquote very nice introductory meeting with yesterday. No money specifically discussed. They are selling him. I'm being a Yankee and winning. Also key the dollars will be there that it was a quote the Yankees believe. He'd thrive in New York but also believe he may prefer. La The dollars will be. There is a statement that just gets me up in the morning from the Yankees the full on erection dollars will be. There is something I haven't heard from them in a while. You Know Patrick Corbin. I know he ended up winning a world series but it I don't I still don't think I said at the time one hundred forty million Patrick corporate the six one forty like no. It's not and I like if this. This is the plan all along now. I'm sure they didn't think air coal would be this good in his second year in Houston. But if you're gonNA save you know let's not go all in for Corbin so so we can have this money for coal if that's the that's the endgame great. I'd I'd be furious if they let's say they had lost again in the AL CS right with Corbett. It is the courtroom. Wasn't that great. Until a few his last appearance in the world series. Yes shaky playoff it feel like at what point is areas like the fives like. Let's say they had wasted one hundred forty Corbin and now like you're like oh well we couldn't send cold because you guys WanNa Corbin. Well fuck that. Sorry now we can just go use all that money for for coal greet for that so it tastes sucks like it to a degree. It's almost going to be out of the Yankees hands. That said they will offer the most but if he just prefers is la played. There's almost nothing which is ridiculous. I think it's a little overplayed too. I do love I think the Yankees. I think cashman boone. Whoever's out there can do a really good job? Selling the Yankee Brain I think is the key I think the Yankees do a great job of that of selling like the pinstripes of like you know. We're a great organization to carry. Your family will make sure you thrive here. Everyone like no one leaves Yankees early with bad things to say about the organization. Now everyone says treated so great First Class Organization. Sheila War can really sell that and I just don't I mean you combine that with the money. I think he may be a contender. I don't really know I it. It should be enough to get him. The whole thing is so big because obviously California kid and a kid kid all grown But the angels were the number one team for him when he was a free agent. Everyone thought he go the angels. The Yankees offered more money he went to the Yankees money. Trump's everything Kevin durant everyone. Everyone always thought. Kevin durant would sign with the wizards because he's from the DC area no wants the warriors like about Lebron's the only guy who did it like he went home and it's such a radio yesterday. That's what it was. Yeah and it's such a different thing. Where like he was from Ohio he played for the cavs he left and then he came home like he came home to the city that he's from and for the team that played for Garrett Cole never played angels the number overplayed for the doctor uses grew up in that area which I think is very different than coming home to the organization? It's coming to the area. Yeah I mean this is not gonna I think this is just gonNA GONNA be. Do you want money and winning or do you want to be location and you know be near family and all that California. That's what this comes down to. It's going to be what coal prefers and no one fucking knows. Sweeney murdy reiterated basically that The pitch they gave is the similar one that gave CC. Eleven years ago considered West Coast Guy Large contract for a pitcher played. A little part of you know when you get offered the most money ever like you want that you don't want angels like say it's not like the inferior organization offering more than like a shitty like. It's almost like you know what I mean like. I know for colds different. Because it's but you get a team like who's just shitty like that would like the Rangers maybe like a shitty organization paying top dollar. You see a top region like saying no to them. It's like I'd rather go to a bed. Organization Organization think he's are the better organization in angels and they're gonNA offer more money whether you like it or not. The Yankees will enter the twenty twenty season as the world series favourite because the nationals shows are gonNA lose one of Strasbourg. Run down the answers US going to lose Garrett Cole. The Red Sox whatever punishments. They might just be suspended all year. We'll definitely be the favorite to win Nia without the whole thing. The dodgers can't really trust them. Kershaw you're older. Who fucking knows? They're the nationals. Losing Renault or Strasbourg. DOC and the red SOx might trade their team. They might package bets and price which apparently is a thing now they might try. They might try them. You'll get away prices deal by attaching. mookie there which crazy nothing back. What is your name store? That'd be a shame but whether you like it. They don't signed call. The Yankees will enter the twenty twenty season as the world series his favorite Garrett Cole they might be like minus three hundred. It's going to be it's GonNa be the most fucked you Yankees team.

We also have more more Joel Sherman Info about the meeting no financial Turner discussed because there's an understanding that if if the Yankees are interested in a player they're not afraid to go to the top of the market. The recognition is that they could be true of that could be true for other teams. The dodgers two and therefore what will matter where coal and Orange County native. WHO still lives? There wants to play for most of his decade. Most of the naked. That is why the Yankees Group headed by I. Brian Cashman Aaron Boone. and New pitching coach Map Lake felt it more important to sell New York the Yankees Brandon what the organization could do for coal as a pitcher. I family Off the field as well. I'm just like bought like baller. Like yeah like we're GonNa tell you how much we'll get we'll give you because like just tell us what other teams give him. We'll give you so. This is the million dollar question multi million dollar question hundred million dollar question. What will it cost? What would you you give him? What is the number now? Think about this issue sixty Tanaka. NC got seven year deals. It seems like the number they don't want to go pass in the in. The recent history is seven. I feel like eight gets done. If the GO-TO and that case just fucking doing year worry about that year later about the radio winning a world series championship means so much and with him. You're probably winning. Maybe more than one like if you have to suck it up and fucking twenty twenty seven. I don't care here's the here's what I brought them radio. That's very important. It's not this Garrett Cole is not just the answer for twenty twenty. He's The answer for twenty twenty one twenty twenty through twenty twenty seven because after next next year. Paxton's up free agent. Colette Him. I'd like to keep him. You never know you never know Tanaka free to. I'd imagine they would keep him. I think right Org. You'll never know those guys are free agents. J. Hop has a vested option on his bed. One hundred as very bad hundred sixty five innings or twenty-seven starts next year. An extra year kicks in. I have a feeling they're either going to try and trade him. I think he's going to be gone. I don't I do. I do not think Jay hops on this roster really. I don't think he is. I don't get rid of his money for Garrett Cole true apparently how came out recently instead they don't want to go through that luxury tax of two forty forty eight. They don't WanNa hit that third penalty so if that's the case that's draft. Pick to Fox with their draft. Picks sure they go from twenty eight to thirty eight isn't a big deal. I didn't know that I mean I picture. First pixels are in any sport. Those are big. Deal Yeah but I don't know but I think they do but I do think I think there's an ability here where you can trim that money. I think you can attach some sort of prospect. It's not gonNA be a high prospect but you can attach their prospect which hit J. Happen and have someone take him on he's still serviceable starter. I think he could be a four star on a team of three starting young like a shadier team. I think I do not think Jay on this roster to to start two thousand twenty and that will get rid of his money so I'm thinking something along the lines chew eighty eight. I think to eighty over eight gets it done I to sixty in my head. That's just been the number to my. I'll go to a is going to be like thirty two point five minus thirty five year. I think it gets it done. And what's three hundred over. Eight thirty seven point five. That's too much it's not like it's too much. I don't think it's going to take. I think it's a done. I think that's high enough where any angels offer is kind of like go play for the Yankees and when multiple worlds. So do we know all the speculation is like GEICO probably wants to go back to La. Do we really have a confirmed that the angels GonNa Call Allegorical. That hasn't I've been out something. Nothing like crazy credit interested. But now I've seen like Dell willing to go to any number six. Wash it bugs. I didn't get to my point so back to my point. Those three guys that sixty percent of your rotation last year is pretty much gone after a year or after one year. So this isn't like getting Garrett Cole isn't like we're all in for twenty twenty. We don't know how many years Aaron Judge Glacier to these guys are young for so long it's no it's we need Severino Marino and coal for the next seven or eight years like the pressure. Alleviated off of savvy if you sign Cole is just an enormous. He becomes the number two guy but he's not really a number two guy with his stuff. He's really locked loaded. And he's a one eight one B situation but the pressure off of him and it's like you can just fucking beer to guy and just dominate and we have the best one punch in baseball and it's not close to the next eight years cold Severino Severino coal. Oh my God you start any playoff roster. Your thought walked like packs even just in twenty twenty packs and I think he's like a massive year like imagine that top during rotations. Because you're DACA. And then you're talking about a clunker Schmidt Schmidt or Mike or whoever I forget about all the time. Yeah that he he makes that rotate he turns Garrett Cole being number one on the Yankees rotation with guys they have after him that weakness in the rotation weakness I put in quotes. I think it's still so a good rotation that turns into strength. That's the power that Garrett Cole has I think they realized that I think the brass of the Yankees like they're just so the pressures onto to you know first decade in one hundred years they don't go to a world series people like fucking come on stop being cheap. Go all out go all out. I think the pressures assures on and again like you said the window is here where you know eventually going to have to pay judge. You'RE GONNA have to pay GLEYBER GONNA have to pay Gary like you know and Geo by well. Whatever I mean? You're severino down the road. Well now I guess down the Binga. It's like five years but like compound this window now Garrett Cole worry about Shit leader and just go win a couple of fucking world series like and these Aaron judge is gotTa be thirty before you know it that got better of a fucking ring. By the time he's thirty we waste gas shit. And like I know the Astro Chee Out of two world series and all that. But it's now on it's now or never like if you're not GonNa pay for Garrett Cole when he ever GonNa pay for anybody he's twenty nine years old pitcher and I think they. I know it gave you look at next year's free agent market. There's nobody better. I mean there's nobody better in baseball but there's nobody even like really close available trade market. There's not like like it. He's the best pitcher in baseball. He's available. It's a position of need. Think he's are hungry for a world series. Just go do it. Just please just do it. Oh Mike good all right. So that's a much Garrett Cole I think we can possibly say hopefully by the time. We're talking next week next week. I don't I don't think we'll know about Garrett Cole until January January I think he's GonNa take his time and he should. I bet it's done before Christmas. I don't think he's before Christmas. They said it's January. I think Strasberg's done before Christmas. And I think we know where wheeler signs before Christmas and I think we know we're ready. Don't sucks all the backup plans for the Yankees are going to be gone. That's why that almost makes it better. It's like you just have to go. You have to draw a number. You have to do fuck you Yankee number and just make it happen and give him no other options. Yeah California the son everything but like we're the Yankees and we're giving them the key man. I'm telling you see see she's got a fucking he. He's got a text coal so much that he gets his number block. That's how much I need. CC move on quota frazier in the news. Welcome this morning always nice when you just I have a blog just fall into your lap like you come into work some days and it's like I gotta look for some things to write about fucking could frazier. Just thank you. Thank you my friend but he. He was playing call duty last night with Daniel Jones. Newly benched giants quarterback bench third. And it's GonNa give Eli the chance to ride off into the sunset Jones bad. He's not you actually don't like them but he did not look inspectors. He made a couple of bad throws but he. I doubt on Daniel Jones on draft day. He's shown me enough this year. We're like he's going to be legit like he's he's making turnovers. He's fumbling but also he's getting rush. Dropped almost judge the season because they're line is so bad even throwing he makes enough plays or it's like okay. This guy had like you know some people have it like he's made enough plays great. He's got he's. He's not gonNA best quarterbacks ever but he's got like he's got I'm convinced he's got all right I I I thought that packers games me a lot closer than no no no not. The giants are me but the giants might be the worst organisation football just from like and when you consider everything coaching roster talent. Oh Yeah front office giants Fan and he was like there's no worse coach team in also just they have no they really like. I would trade sake on this off season. That's take. That's averaging a yard because saquon most valuable years and be the next two to three years. We're still under his rookie deal and before he gets a bunch of mileage on his legs. Giants are not going to be good in the next two to three years. I'd rather get draft capital. First Round picks early second round picks whatever it is used to build the offensive line. I'd much rather build an offensive line and then you get a running back then vice versa. Why can just building defensive line now use every drag you have in the next test I want to chase you I? It's I'm just saying what I what I would. I don't think like I don't think say Kwanza value with the giants started back. Do you want him to like have a great end to the the season and then those rafts or have him lose parting gift franchise should be going Oh info or however many games he starts tank let them get lettuce chase young but schedule software. It looks for the Redskins. Giants suck so matter how soft. It's Redskins. Dolphins Eagles twice that. That's the eagles twice. Texans also titans twice fifteen weeks ads on these probably good division. Let's see if they play each other. Oh they play twice. Yeah Export Warriors. But I don't know but record sanity. His career record one hundred sixteen and one hundred sixteen so I'd hate to see them. Go out with a losing record. I got I got bad issue. I think he's being illegal suck. Yeah they do suck. I hate people like all there in the Huntsville. They are because has the NFL. Despite all like that I think I mentioned you guys could easily won. The division were wins this year. If they were Forni right now I was coming back. It'd be like Holy Shit Eric. I'd us into another two or three like super bowl run but whatever yeah Johnson. Let's let's go giants Clint Frazier which streaming as on twitch. I assume with Daniel Jones very weird combination there. I saw all the videos. That Danny Dansko like there's no way an yeah they they plan on streaming supplant called duty and all of a sudden. Clint started. Just unleashing. Some trolls on On the Astros I loved. It will play the audio now. Banks slider her curveballs Homerun. NOPE NOPE nope. Someone had messed up the sign. We go it. He said to banks the curve. Bonnie Bank twice the bank four times. Either I mean that's that's laugh out loud. Funny that was legitimately funny stuff from Clinton like sometimes sounds like athletes can be cordy when they try and like do this shit. That was very very very well done. So that's the I didn't see the video. He's Malay he's playing cod. And he's May laying a trash can. That's that's what it was loading or something. He was just hitting the ball out of his gun. That's hilarious. Yeah that was a trash can. That's the whole joke. I just I was hearing the whole time. I'm just I was honestly. I watched the video as walking to work and then I blocked it and everything but I also. The video is grainy for me but That's that's how he was hitting stats. The great side of Clint Frazier is like that personality. Not Being afraid to you know say say what he wants to say and like have a personality I remember he told us. We interviewed him last off season. He was like sometimes punished for having personality. Like that's him having a personality being good I don't know what happened to him this off season but I'd love to good productive player in the Yankees and he got we got see this like fun side of him all the time I think all the Yankees were waiting for one person on the team to like initiate controlling. And they're making fun of and they're like judge Keinan when he was like wait. What remember like judges tweet tweeted? Yeah Oh this is. This is a direct shot. The actress yeah and now the God of perfect perfect and this is good for Clinton. How do you get people to forget about your terrible defense? And like you know shaky handlings with the media make for the Astros for gym. Well that that's how you get your What's it called Q.? Like your q score q score. That's how you get a roster spot. Yeah we get twenty six twenty six roster spots twenty-five going into two thousand twenty so we could find some. I don't know what goes I. Don't know what his futures features like. But I would love to see clint beaches be consistently healthy and produce. Because I think he's actually a talented player. I think the defense has to find itself but I think you think he wants to be better defensively and like he's got the brain issues. Maybe still like the paying attention. And all that all roles in the one little thing but I don't know I like I think there's a lot of untapped. Potential with the bat speed is going to be there. I think he hustles hard. He's always going to be you know he's never going to be a dog play. He's always like goes. You know as hard as hard as you possibly can yet BALSA Wasser trying to say So I'm a fan of Clinton and That ashes thing was very funny. Got A kick out of that so hopefully isn't get in trouble for it. I don't think he will but now now what else we got here. I know one thing we we got I wanted to talk to you about.

Companies want to sponsor US Jackie's car to and free money if you have to Can make gambling is at an all time low. What else we got here? Oh the so unrelated to the Yankees. We'll get back to the Yankees a little bit more things but Corrobos no longer the rocket pretty good pretty good news for for every Yankee Fan out there fucking hate his guts. I was kind of a win win because I don't like either of those people say work rob us but I was helping jared. A little bit was throw doing some soft toss with them and the old office. We still have an old office apparently while the TV's are still there just absolute wasted space. It's unbelievable we should use it. I yeah we used as a pitching tunnel basically are a onto other shit there. Oh Yeah I don't think it just looks the base field off but nobody stay here. Pretty much dividers are still there. It's just super clean. We went back in August for like the Frankie replace paying for that space. All all we all want we're paying your city you don't just get ended and that's why I don't know our lease is still. I think the idea was we would find find someone else to take it. And that just hasn't happened. She uses like we're talking about dorm like just like oh I guess if we're staying late and you won't you don't WanNa go uh-huh fights was like I'd say they're like four times a week. I'm like what these stay at my place like twice just not true. There's no way we easily weird brain. I don't know I don't I think he likes where he lives. But we're just as soft austerity arm cooking. My arm fell weeks. I played in the football tournament over the weekend. So BECA DOC LAS dos of actual football players immediately immediately. Lost accents my friend through a pick. Six we get this. We were. We had a scoop and score to go up two touchdowns at some point. The second half is to ten and a half's and they scored a touchdown Melia next drive. So we're like four works. I think we missteps Mr two-point numbers and we went for it on fourth and one at midfield like kind of like a bell check move just to say let's end the game not punted away when you punt that goes through on one and we went for it we got it and then we just had no real constantly how to run the clock out we easily because you can't run football you can't run the football but what we could have done like in my mcvay brain afterwards like the cork snapped and then one of those forward touch passes to a guy like running or else and that's that's basically run. You can run the clock that way. We didn't do that so in the running plays we get down to the one yard line third and goal from the one and then on fourth and one no third go from one. My buddy just throws a pick six and we and we had a minute that drive the field. Yeah this is bad we decide. We're going to retire from like participating in like I lost touch football football football but you Whatever I touch? Football League in like middle school victim looks fondly played. Yeah there's no intramural sports and unshipped. That was the best. I love Israel but I will ask you play basketball all the time. They'll tell us tougher with like touch. Football I don't know how we got. Oh a crop so Kravis Baba's anyone's not aware. Basically there was a Dick Measuring contest. Between what's who can throw fastest and had to do with cyber Monday and every ten thousand we earned off of sales pitch and had to do with how we've traveled back home and hindsight we would probably made the miles per hour range smaller because he was kind of just sitting in that. Take a coach flight home. Like you know the older. I'm sort of you know teetering every mile per hour which would have been more fun but basically if he got really fucked does every every forty thousand we earned corrobos earned a pitch that could knock him down a level at the end and basically the bottom autumn level was headed to Uber back and he would have to change Uber's every twenty miles which is just a disaster and the buses twenty two hours long or something like that where the train is twenty two two hours long whatever. They were a lot of bad things. He ended up being fine and Corrobos just so we ended up averaging seventy seven miles an hour. What they throw? He surprised US every every muscle in his body but he threw heat and then whites Karabelas only mustered. I think seventy three was his top out. You just can't be called the rocket. If you know guys like Mardi Mush I think Y P was cooking hot Marnie and like coral and chuck like you just can't be. The Rock was at the pitcher but rebel take a rocket throw like the seventh fastest in the company. Yeah I'm and I know he's going to try to play off. It's like look I never said I throw harder. And you know on thirty the baseball blogger. But like the whole persona of like. That's fine. Like your jared. You're great as Pablo myself the rocket. I like all right all right like you. Just can't be the rock rock and rocket person like he's just he's a great baseball bar. Great Red Sox blogger author office. People were complaining. There was no punishment jared the punishment is that nickname is shady punishment. The biggest loser the entire Erica is oh yeah yes the CY almost like it was like generated like through computer like aw seventy miles an hour filial duty all show exactly so big Alfred. Jared Nice continue. Can you get those. Because they're gonNA probably treat muggy bets. It's terrible and you won't probably hear from him for like five years and then he'll probably move back to Boston and be miserable. And that will be on the jerk Robert so this is the end. This is the median media which is nice moving fantasy. Football you fucking scumbag beat you and now you're so last last place in a fantasy football league for content finished last heading into the week we may just the worst Rosser decisions ever lineups and and were you guys like stacked before to. Wasn't everyone basically talking. About how like you guys were the the best team after the draft. I feel like I don't think we were definitely like Oh that team could make some noise awesome. We start out like Owen too but then we bow back at one point we're in fourth and then all of us just sucks when you have Hopkins and Mike and they're on a team team where one of the guys on that. One of the receivers on their team goes off. Like it's either going to be a Chris Carbondale Mike Evans today. And it's going to be a willful day or Hopkins and most of the time time towards the end of the year. It was both those guys just days and then we couldn't figure out quarterback Josh Allen. Aaron Rogers Rogers was terrible. Fantasy was until the giants game. We'd benched Aaron Rodgers because supposed to snow snow for a quarter we got fucked outweigh and Marlin map broke his hand. We didn't WanNa Start Nadeem hindsight. We started chase edmunds. She didn't get a fucking snap despite them getting blown Out So bullshit guy. Is he killed. Killed the giants three touchdowns or something right right down the block from coming back from an injury I know but but like he was fully healthy. Wasn't limited all practice and they just didn't play them bullshit so mean Chaffetz finishing last the punishment of twelve hours radio. which sounds like we're to do next week? Do you need a producer for that. Runs can be a producer because he finished last in the Producers League. Yeah guys got so lucky. Yeah thought that it'd be the fun but the fact that like it could have been like you know. Producers has no on air experience or Roan like twelve hours Yankees. If if. I don't know if ron knows how to work stuff back there. He might still need somebody to help them. The most talented human being on the DICK PIC in minutes And also I think Mike is going to be there okay so like technical people and I think suddenly going to like mall in Tier from twelve hour night staying. Sounds kind of fun anyway. I think big T is going to be there. Because he's the fucking worse commissioner world the factory we'd have a losers bracket to decide leagues adds more content to it and extends it like it's not I get what you're sang but like in terms of like the fun the next two weeks of like. Oh these four teams are deciding like instead of just like there's like fourteen purgatory or three teams in purgatory. That just like you. You are just sitting there. And they're they're fantasies over. It's like Jimmy more fun and it's more like exciting. If there's a losers bracket that's how every every league I've been a part of usually does it and then eight teams aims to make the playoffs is just ask tiebreaker. For if you had like the same record river was head to head and not points big taste aged terrible has no idea he's doing he's part of it so I guess if you have if you don't have a Sirius. XM APP download it. Free retrials all over the place. So we're going to be doing from seven. PM to seven am. It's GonNa be either Tuesday or Thursday. We're deciding right. We're starting next couple of days what it's going to be but it'll it'll be next week. I don't think they prefer to not spend my birthday. Do twelve hours radio. That would be kind of miserable. Like just don't really want to do that so I guess maybe Tuesday will birthday plants and going to do something this Saturday go out and I. I don't like going out for the most part. I don't like my birthdays. I don't like people talking in general but I think I'm GonNa do something like Saturday just drink. Do you WANNA come in. Hang Out Got Home Family from Florida. I guess we really want anybody that was. There's a half invite anyway but yeah so stay tuned. Next week I guess Sirius. Xm So we're doing some seven PM to seven AM I. We're GonNa Talk Hug as many games as possible. I guess until midnight and then the plan from there. It's just maybe play onto the Internet for awhile and we're going to take a bunch of calls is people are gonNA call. I'd imagine the calls from like two. Who Am the sixth? It'd be fucking bizarre because drivers drive in the middle of the night just edano. Don't talk to anybody about. It'll be weird. I guess so. Let's go back to Yankees. Talk is being talked about and traits which he might be the guy that's packaged with HAP. That's starting to put things together together here like you WanNa like dump and do like. He's so good like I think. I know it was bad last year. But he's in the injuries if Garrett Cole you'd do it right but it doesn't really what if like Danke Danke shouldn't operate under the philosophy of we have to give up a great young hitting asset in order to get a starting pitcher like you can have both like each hap- or trade him for nothing. Give up another asset Peop- I don't get why there's so much pressure to trade handle. I think he's a great header. I think being organization and loves his bat his defense could get better. You get them playing on the infield defense will not get better Detroit whatever it is. I don't I don't know why there's like a rush to trade him. I also value as low as it's going to be right now like this isn't selling high at all. That would have been last off season. So I don't I don't WanNA WANNA trade him and people are like Oh trade into the ranger looked Jose La- searching whatever. The fuck is name is a reliever I'm done with the Susan Catcher that's interesting I think Kinsley fillet fillet allows somebody Mike minor minor for the Rangers. Think that's going to have become hiring someone else. Well Mike Monitor doesn't have like a no trade us. I'm not sure I'm now the like even remember how much we hated. Robbie Ray in the off season you can't stand there or in the trade deadline within the belief that like take out take any patriots points. I think map lake will fix awesome like I'm of the belief Robbie right like I now look robbery. You look at his numbers twelve strikeouts per nine or whatever as like okay. Like sure is air as higher and he's got some a homerun and walked stuff but now we have like just the greatest of all time I think he can now fix anybody. I'm file Robbie Rate as long as we have Garett cold. Start Start Right. We're just getting robbery. Lose my fucking mind because that's not the answer but if you get both those guys great we can make Robbie Ray are four starter. That's awesome. That's your fucking Dick Timberlake. Yeah here we go by. I think he might take starters. Even if you're adding cold I think they might end up the starter. I don't know if they will but I think it's possibility. Okay now the Antar thing stems from Michael Cashman was and he said I'm definitely getting a lot of interest and Miguel and Harlem sitting down here. I've got clubs asking me. What are you GonNa do with them? We have an interest in marcus down make sense and a lot of untapped potential if you can somehow fix his defense now assistant leap someone. That better defense doesn't really get fixed. They're you know when you're statistically that bad just doesn't happen but his bat is gifted he can hit a baseball very very very very hard very very very far and you have to think that a lot of the doubles he hit when he had that great year you can turn ten of those in the home runs. And all of a sudden you're looking at a thirty homerun guy and it's like a high average hitter his on base percentage could get better and I mean that can grow into something you learn right so Robertson Cano right like there's there's a lot of untapped potential and I get what you're saying is that this could be selling him low but at the same time. Maybe he doesn't bounce back from shoulder. Injuries are tough and maybe he doesn't back I don't know he just he's like the type of hitter the Yankees need like we keep saying we want these high average guys like a DJ whatever Kaiser's they don't strike and we subject but you guys are GonNa hit two eighty to ninety. That's what we wanted and that guy he's just a pure hitter. He knows how to fucking hit. Baseball's I don't want to give them up for for nothing or you know. Just give them up so that we can dump Jerry Hap- I got I gotTA. I'm just saying be on the lookout. I got a bad feeling and I don't know if it's bad uh-huh he gets traded. I mean something good is going to happen probably with coal or whatever. I just want you off the team that would like to dump Jay contract meetings a lot easier Garrett Cole so if an equation then so be it whatever and then to wrap up before we go. DM's map lake. He was an historic athletic. When did this come out this recent yesterday? Okay basically talking about the inner workings of the Indians. And just a lot of good blake. Stuff here Specifically with Bieber when the minor leagues. He's trying to work out a change up while he was being resistant to change. And that was like listen. Buddy you're going to need to change up right. We rather you not have to do this in the major leagues and have you teat out teed up Over there let's do it here in the Eastern League Cook with a change of develop it now. I mean what be finished. What did I say? Happy a chamber. I don't know if I started fourth or fifth fourth in the CY young I mean and he said he credits map lake with pretty much embracing him with the analytics and opening a quote unquote opening putting his is to analyze saying how good he is delivering the analytics information in a way to understand what exactly what the guys we interviewed and everybody else says about map lake this first another map lake high piece and I'm all for him at this point. It made me feel like any pitcher in baseball. We could take and turn into an ace this guy. I mean he gives me so much like what is is he gonNa do to Gerrit. Cole I was going to like we'll Jericho's knockabout run ever should strike at every single every single better. Every single person struck out. Yeah I'm all in a map. Lake all the things they've done so far very very very good. Just we call. This is the best off-season maybe ever Let's get into we're going to.

Oh no not that though thing. We're like you play against your buddy and it's like you get a specific team and you can get like passing offense or you get like a really shout defensive team it's new. It's you have to have a team or a new version of it. They just got added. xbox live Oh we're doing to me pre expo I was just getting at. We're talking about Christmas. Giving getting a three sixty. I think I remember getting my parents love to pull fastens inch in like throw me off the they give me like a shoebox wrapped up whatever and I think like fuck. They just didn't get me three sixty one time. The one time I got three sixty it was like I was just totally thrown off the surprised crazy because they would just fuck with me. Yeah I remember an unbelievable Mona my child. I remember one time I was at my in like in my aunts Baseman for Christmas. Busy even like there is a huge gift wrapped. And everyone's I guess for you but like it's a bookshelf sick fucking bookshelf opened up was the ESPN game center games owner. Whatever do you remember that or is it A? Yeah Yeah you throw a football and then the best gift every year would ask my parents for Yankee season tickets kind of as joke. Then it wouldn't happen and then one year like they're like the last gift and it was like a Yankee sweater it was okay like kind of a lacklustre last gift plan inside. It was like my mom's boss boss like twenty twenty five game season so that was like relatives. Christmas parents put all my video games so they asked for in Brownie batter boxes. And then wrap that and I was like you just got me brownies for Christmases kind of lame. But it was like every game that I asked where we boxes wouldn't even be the worst so saying like what is she like just wanted i. I liked both but one of Barney's my life the other day by the way at a place in the city I guess I'll shout it out. No no free. It's free it okay. Somebody said that they would streak around their neighbourhood wearing just two Garrett Cole Jersey and also dipped they're not cincinnati if they signed giving something up. You're going the extra mile. A couple of people said toes or some people said limbs give toes in a second. He's had three toes. I think I can stand with seven. Oh I came down to like maybe before toes I think four toes. No actually you'd be is. I forgot about walking. You got about what's important. I forgot I mean point. Oh I know I forgot. I forgot the toes helped with walking. I what I saw. What you lose all your balance and not dominant? You can lose your pink. What's it called intestine know what's called? What equilibrium no? No no you get a little thing kidney stone all taken going out and Dixie chicks there it. Is that a second right right for a second. I was like that's like a kid. Yeah this guy said I'd give a kidney and thirty eight dollars in my checking account for Garrett Cole approve that This guy said he would watch a video on loop of Greg Egbert rounding the bases every morning half hour. That's dedication do that. That's legit okay. I'll do a second Jacobs. DORF steady steady would give up all over. He would pay off all of mushrooms gambling debt. I Love Scott Justin Hill. I have four kids all this turning seven and youngest two months. Pick one or all ED or Eddie love for family you name it. He's given up his family. I think Cardi Arabian Prince. Take my sister captive. Yeah you really hate your sister really cool really. Don't get along. I wouldn't think twice about it. I thought one of the most interesting ones Riley Wilkins said he would sacrifice the two thousand nine Yankees World series. Hear me out. It was so long ago that it feels like we haven't been on track since the late nineties early. Two thousands thousand very special world series series but to have a chance to get air cool and gone to win a bunch. More in this decade would be worth it for twenty year right out and like you're giving N- Karen teed World Series for maybe one you don't want to deal with the I don't know because then we're chasing twenty seven. No memories of nine Arabs like some a Christian Minjiang said he'd go blind for year and Lewisburg lose one limited time. We talked about that when we took I next season and fantasy football. Jasper Abraham's wild man. Going out on a limb here Sam said for white with sandpaper super for the entire length of his contract. Oh my God probably would you die from that at some point good. I think you might just grow used to it. Yeah well this guy is so strong cower. Seventeen said not being able to watch including a single pitcher baseball next year. Now what's the point again. Gary Cole- can't wash them. I'm willing to give up Yankee fans born in the two thousand and saying we have twenty seven brings down that line cool Sky Go Vegan for a year interesting. What if I do that I go I mean? I Hate Vegan for one year at Pizza Pizza. This pizza cheese cheese cheese comes from animals cheese meat. No it's tearing begins all animal products. We dairy vegetarian two different things. Vegetarian is me just vegetarian. His letters letters and I just see is like the only plants urge anything that came from an animal sal eggs and also there's like that's the thing get like I'll go to whole foods. Sometimes they vegan Turkey. What does that mean? It's not Turk it's usually like either. Tofu howdy Sir. I don't know what do you eat. I me every meal. How about this? What am I told you? Every New Year's Eve you have to go by yourself to to Times Square at six. Am Watch the ball. Drop for the rest of your life. Sam that whenever they get there like oh early in the wheeler phillies at least five hundred million police credit Short Porch J uh awesome the from Japan That's what we said earlier in the show that he probably be signed by the time are listening men would dislike time travel. My Mind's fucked right now. You're going to hear this a good. I mean hurts the mets. Oh my God oh you know. He's a science get better. Put every also We resigned on Betances. There's rumors that like him. In real they are going to rejoin the philly ordinary joined drawer and phillies. Like get either I would like I would like Matanza saying no I have a feeling they're gonNA go. After Blake trend. I cannot believe he got released. He got non tender. That fucking guy. I know he's going to be like seven million arbitration but He had one of the best statistical relief seasons literally one year ago. Twenty eighteen is one of the best also shows. You like how fickle sometimes relief pitching can be. I think my blake could figure out what's wrong. I forgot we're literally. I'm just saying yeah. Map lease hyped assistant coach ever in baseball in baseball. Yeah kidding I remember freaking out over a hitting coach or pitching coach. We're very desperate. Yeah troops down to and I feel like a football you got it with with Dell. EMC majors thing though. I don't know if he's willing to yeah. I mean I think two years thirteen million would be fine. I do that. Yeah but six and a half year. Let's get down beat W is having Garner to like get those. I don't know why those were. Dj Extend Indeed for life. Yeah tweet on Thanksgiving looked like that so I I think that's. That's good enough. That like the rest of the world should agree with that and then cashman should just extend Dj for the rest of his life. It's real easy. Yes so hard about like how much are you going to cost like his values so high right now. Are you saying you don't WanNa sign you. You want him beyond the Yankees next year. But I'm just saying like three to five million ghetto. He's out of the east side of that chance. Yeah that'll do. I don't know if we saw that I think he wants like five years million. No Comey off. What do you think what is money? I think right now like his value. who is out of Max? Dj Lemay was holding a book right now and after reaches book in an hour. And he's done. He's going to go watch film after he's done films. You read another book. He's just going to keep his mind gone and he's doing things coming off. I don't know I think three forty five is massively under selling them who is his agent negotiated start low and you go. Oh Hi I'm a star three forty five and I'm GONNA go to three sixty three sixty do the deal. She twelve thirty six. I'm doing eight million dollar. I'm definitely really doing three sixty two. I just don't know if he's four for sixty. I'm also doing that. But that's worse friend hundred one hundred four seventy five. Maybe that gets done and then you start thinking. Is that two hundred year deal for five hundred million dollars. Five million a year for the next hundred years I do that I would I do too. I think has worked with luxury tax also but also with death. Does that factoring kids kids by deserve. If you've got kids Back to the evening. Would you do New Year's Eve every single year if the way if it every year of his contract yes okay the rest of my life every contract. So let's say the next eight years you have to just show up New Year's Eve you're in your mid twenties and you can't enjoy near Ziv you just. I Hate New Year's Eve anyway anyway. I do too so at least this is like a set thing yet. We're diaper. Yeah punishment you go to your New Year's Eve you've that'd be bad it's crazy. The radio has not punish us to say as like a like a like a bucket list. Right there are two forms of people that are just a crazy people my mind when you go on a legal sports stream to watch a game that people who comet in the chat account those right and people stand outside year's Eve are the if there's a ven diagram those people probably interested like they're all the same people who are the craziest person in the fucking world if you go on a reddit stream. Whatever and you're commenting and talking with the people stream the chat by the way it goes so quick people have conversation? Yeah I don't know and also with the account one of the bigger like myths like that. It's not a method so real thing bigger like mysteries in the world who the fuck is commenting profiting. And there's always a conversation saying they're always up the day you could add all Thanksgiving parade goers into that same now a little different. I think when you go out on Thanksgiving Eve and then wake up at six. Am to go into your your automobile. They're not going out. Four of my friends did. Oh Fuck. We went out on Thanksgiving. Thanks giving eve. We got back at three to keep drinking had like a tenth or something at the parade. I mean I definitely would not go to the things but I think it's less crazy crazy new year's eve and where we're coming from Jersey Cold Year's Eve warm Thanksgiving days it was like sixty degrees. Komo part yeah I mean I don't get it like why are you saying there's no but if I if it's for Garrett Cole I do it I do anything anything I just said. I'd give a Saudi Arabian Prince. The rights to my sister so that sounds like to you. That's like not even that big of a deal you have to like Piss your pants. Basically they lock you in those pens. You can't go out to eat. You can't go out to go to the bathroom can you leave. Can you just say Look You just pee your pants or a bottle I if people wear diapers because you get there like I know that I don't know about off like I'll I'll go to the bathroom. It's time to lose my spot. I don't care you'd be a half a mile away. You'll I'd be like in the park basically or about standing in the bathroom. That's doesn't care about having a good view. These limits were willing to push your call. Let's hope CASHMAN's the same way. We'll see you back here on the show reports next week later this John Sterling. You've been listening to short porch. Byproduct of barstools abort go. You'll be blowing. They do the free damage sir.

A Clean-Shaven Gerrit Cole 'Wins' His Press-Conference

"Live from the Investors Bank Studio Woomera Sizing Gregg Giannotti boomer and Geo on the fans simulcast across the country on CBS sports network. Mark Good Thursday morning boomer is out in Los Angeles he has gone. Hollywood on us is currently filming will not currently. It's probably is asleep but later today. No no he's out there filming as Super Bowl commercial a very top secret super bowl commercial. That you we're going to see during the Super Bowl broadcasts. That apparently has all sorts all the celebrities in it and they're using the okay boomer thing in there so that's all I can tell you can't tell you anything else about it. It is under locking. He is top secret. He'll be back tomorrow. Jerry RECCO in four or boomer today Good Morning Jerry. What's happening? I'm good you know so. I guess. No one has sat here. I know Maggie was here but it doesn't seem like anybody use the computers boomer left because the last two things that are on the computer federal income tax rates and sports contract numbers and how they affect tax like. Yeah I mean that is his. That's his drug sex tax talk and break it down. Those numbers that that that is his vice on loves it but when you see like so so you're on that side so sometimes you can see his face but like like I can get a sense of when he goes to those websites because I can look right at his screen from where I'm at his whole demeanor changes we start breaking down percentages. And how everybody's getting screwed with taxes. That's his favorite thing. And if he were here today he he would say Oh Garrett Cole is going to my wife right off his face when he sees how much is taken out of his paycheck from the Yankees and of course the press conference yesterday. Richard I happened to be in the car while this was going on for for most of it and Sweeney and Susan doing the the coverage of the Garrett Cole Press Coverage. You can't win a championship in a press conference you can win a press conference however and Garrett Cole indeed did do that. I mean whether you're Yankee Hater. A Yankee Fan and independent baseball as bullets observer. He did everything. You'd want a guy who got that much money to be the face of one of the faces of your organization though. I mean everything that he said. He felt like he was genuine. It didn't seem like an act. He had the sign which I do believe was the same sign. I know there was a thing back and forth yesterday ought to fake exon. They made the now for someone who has held onto like in my old bedroom that I grew up in that my parents still live there. There are Sports Memorabilia. Stuff that I have. There looks exactly like that. That is faded over the years. If you hang onto something for that long eight fades just like dad. Dad that to me was the same side but I thought it was great. So doesn't mean anything really know but as far as him introducing himself to the New York sports. It's world in the Yankee fans. I thought it was great. It was really cool in a goes to a guy who I guess you could say bet on himself by GonNa College and what he did. I give you grew up a huge huge Minnesota Viking Fan. If you're a big time football player and you got drafted out of high. It's a different sport but you gotta drive at high school by the Vikings. I mean it was the cow would run like that's like your childhood dream. Is He talked about yesterday. Being the Yankees Charlton Dream. It's amazing how he actually said no thank you. I'm not ready yet and I know. Oh cashman Brian. CASHMAN talked about that. How it wasn't the right time for him in the right situation and now is the right time and he's really season pitcher now maybe arguably one of the best pitchers in baseball as we know in that he turned it down to become a better pitcher and a better player until the timers right and now the time obviously is griped? Boy that takes a lot to hold yourself back like that. I'm not sure I'd be able to do that. And it's millions of dollars. I mean that's the biggest thing now. I don't know how financially secure or his family was at the time at D. ensure they were struggling it would have been a different story but he's a guy who also wanted to go to college because he mentioned how the education was important important to him and his father and his entire family that he didn't want to miss out on that and the pitching coach there at Ucla. So yeah I mean his story. We didn't really know a lot about him as a person outside of the fact that he you know turned down the Yankees. He went to Pittsburgh and the whole Houston thing and then obviously the way he wore his Scott. Boris had at the end of a game seven. I didn't really know a ton about him even when I was in Pittsburgh when he was there because it was a little bit guarded he was a young kid. When a J Burnett was there with the pirates he really was was the spokesperson for everybody and and Garrett Cole was quiet now I feel like yesterday when we found out everything about him and then when he sat down with Sweeney and Susan? I don't know if you've heard any of that. I I mean he was just as engaging and just as personable as he was when he was behind the podium. You know sometimes guys or they're tired of doing interviews or whatever. He felt like he was a part of. This organization is entire life which has been in the sense of. He was a Yankee Fan. Noise a kid who was drafted by them. I mean this is sort. It was like this had to happen at some point in his life. If that's what it felt like and it happens in the prime of his career and for the eight year old this is the missing piece to what they believe is a championship team. He's been that good now. Does it translate back over to another another team. I don't know why it wouldn't. It is funny looking at him without the beard. He just he looks like a different person. Yeah and I know when you shave you would look a little different. He genuinely looks looks like a different human being. Yeah it's also the haircut to how is there a bug that flies into my eye in here. How does that happen all this uh-huh I mean it's seventeen degrees the bugs regime come hide in the buildings now? Well this is the problem that have been eggs in the soil oil. Yeah it had to have been what happened because we've got a real live wreaths and trees in here there must have. I've been like an egg that was in there and I hear about this all the time. People are spiders and stuff in real Christmas trees and like a moth or something. Some sort of winged winged insect flew directly into my ideas. Now I mean this is pretty. It looks great. I was sneezing yesterday. Coffin that you take some. I forgot I totally forgot generally this time of year. I don't have to take that. It's part of my routine in the spring and summer even in the fall in the wintertime. You generally my allergies seasonal allows you all go away not usually in a forest right but now now when you're in Holland into this yeah basically yes and Boris. Not even here well for one day yeah I would still allow anyway. That was that was the last thing in the world I expected to see was a moth in my eyeball but yes so It was funny because we're talking about shaving beards and look like a different person. My wife has used that exact line on me. She says don't shave. It doesn't look good. You look like like a different person. When I told that story the other day someone tweeted me? Must be nice to know. Your wife hates your face when you put it that way. Ah I kinda see that. What if it was with three hundred twenty four million dollars Abu Right exactly you know but I brought that up to you? Hate my face. 'cause as you know this twitter guy brought this up. He makes a good point because the beard covers up. clean-shaven getting married now are you weren't no no no no I ah. I decided long ago that this was the way to go looking face. I if it's just not it's not good. It mean even even add a lighter large obviously it looks terrible double chain and the fat phase and the cheek fat and everything but like even I mean it just. It just doesn't look right. Some people just need to have a Beer Garrett Cole me looks fine no matter what oh he looks fine. He looks but he does look different. Look as intimidating as he did as they grizzly look that he had right. It's different. I was actually surprised when I saw him yesterday. That yeah young yes absolutely much younger. I mean he's like a different guy. You look like you were getting a twenty four year old instead of a twenty nine year old house right. He's been tweeting about this. Like what does happen one day when that is the breaking point for a guy like now Garrett Cole I don't know that it ever will. Yeah I three hundred twenty four million dollars. No one's turning down but the did it even comes up in the conversations. Listen guys I WANNA be there. But this beard thing what Garrett Cole said. I've always wanted to be a Yankee. This money is great. I really appreciate this offer. But I'm a real superstitious guy and I feel like when I pitched with the beard. It gives me a sense of confidence that I don't Have when the beard is gone or if they have religious reasons for wearing a beer well that too. But that's a whole nother O.. Fish or that face. Oh you one day gets approached by the Yankees for contract. Yeah I mean I but to me like what if he said that like I can't. It's just something mentally with me. I gotTa have this beer. I don't know it depends on how it it depends on how much you want to stick to your rule and it's a team rule. The Yankees were so elderly. They do it. There was so hell bent on getting his guy. If Garrett Cole had said something like that they would have let them have the beard said exception here and then it happened. Has It ever the happened before it has no all right but just what I'm saying is though that they they have this beard thing but I think under the right circumstances they would relent. We'll see so far far we haven't seen it. I know the goatee right. They allowed that. Didn't they today then. David wells pitched your goatee at time. Might have just had the Moon Moon Moustache Moustache allowed to. You're allowed to have mustache ranked that's the thing that's fine but you can't have the full facial right. Surprises me with Al.. Ah Kidding aside. You're such a rules stickler. I'm surprised you don't like this. It's like it's kind of like this is what they've done for years and years and years. It's calling this is how we do it. We're the Yankees if you don't like it goes somewhere right. But that's all that's my questions like Geo saying let's say Garrett Cole like sure got the same money from the Red Sox and the Yankees and he said to them listen. I WANNA be a Yankee but I'm not shaving the beard. Would they let him go to Boston. And then that gets out and he says the press conference yeah the Yankees Say Money but they WANNA enemy shaved the Yankee fans that we probably but it's never happened before that's what I'm saying at some point yet. Someone hold all of the gun this chunks. I will say though if it was going to happen I thought Garrett Cole might be the guy to say that because he had offers all over the place you know is three hundred million dollars is it can be offered by. At least three teen and the Yankees are the only team. That's going to tell him how he needs to look physically with his facial hair but anyway it doesn't matter he wants to be a Yankee. And that's part of it too with Garrett Cole. Is You know the fact that he was a Yankee Fan. And he he always dreamed of this. And that's part of the deal. If you WANNA be a Yankee you gotta you gotTa have the no facial now you just hope though. Now he's here. He's a Yankee Fan for life. Now you hope for him it goes well because we know one thing about New York. If you're making the big money and you come with a big price tag and big expectations. You've got to live up to those expectations. One thing. They hit on a lot yesterday. was what type of man he is. That's all well and good and that's very nice. That goes away real quick after a few bad starts yeah. I don't think he's someone. That's going to be intimidated by a situation. I don't think he's someone who is going to. Because does he got the big payday. Take the foot off the gas pedal. I mean. The only thing that I would worry about is the thing that I worry about with anybody who signs a contract to some sort of injury. That's it but there's nothing nothing about his makeup. That makes me think that. Because he got the money or because he's in New York now where the seat is a little hotter all the time that he's GonNa Crumble. He's just not that I don't expect him to. I guess my point is though it's it's really it's world series and its cy young candidacy or bust for him. I he's gotTa Have Nineteen Twenty one seasons he's got to give you a lot of strikeouts a lot of more than quality starts. He's got to give you seven innings. He's gotTa give you three hit performances. He can't go out there and be a pedestrian industry in pitcher. Oh no he's gotta be dominant for what he is nine years and I know there's the opt out after I guess it's four years and who knows maybe that's all it will end up being as a four year contract and if that's the case for the Yankees that means they got their money's worth because he thinks he can do better because he's done so well moves along deal. I miss a lot of money. And it's all it's a lot of years hopefully flee a Lotta starts. You've now got two guys on this roster and Giancarlo Stanton and Garrett Cole making a King's ransom one guy is not lived up to it. We'll see now if this this guy can't and I do think this guy's got the make up to do it. He just has to go out and show us. Yeah and I think to these contracts you got to kind of break them down in thirds right just to begin with did the right thing. You break it down two thirds to me the first three years right now is the most important thing for the Yankees they have to win a h championship with Garrett Cole. In the first three years of this deal and then at that point if you're able to get one of those with him being the dominant top of the rotation pitcher pitcher that you know he's going to be in the front half of this deal than the rest of it makes it more digestible. It just does. And if he does not then the pressure mounts so you know Garrett Cole there's there's two ways that he's going to be accepted if he's completely dominant or three ways if he's completely dominant and they go and win a championship camping chip if he's okay and they go and win a championship right. or He's completely dominant and they fall a little bit short but it's not his fault. Those are the three ways but two of those three are them winning a title. I think that's what this is. A title is everything. They've already come within. You know a series as of winning the championship. They've been being right there the last couple of years. They've been one of the best teams in baseball. The last couple of years. This is all about championships. Even if he gives you a twenty four and four season and they don't win. I'm not saying it's a bad so I'm not saying that at all but you still come up short. Yeah but they're not going to be on him about it that that's the take pictures. Well in the postseason they lose because they can't hit again which by the way the last two postseasons. That's why didn't win. You know and I know that you can't just you just added that lineup last year for crying out loud you know. I didn't think that Edwin Encarnacion was gonNA forget how to hit. I didn't know that some of these guys were going to go into a hole in the ways that they did but the last is two years. That's exactly what's happened to them. And you're adding Garrett Cole which they needed to do and their rotation when everybody's there and healthy is is formidable but let's not not forget now that the Yankees lost to the red sox and lost to the Astros last year more because of the offense then because and this is this is where the conversation in comes in and I hate it sits overdone but it's also true. This is where it comes back to creating runs or being home run hitting team cause for whatever reason that you know. The power of the Homerun seems to go away in the postseason guy. Team still hit them but not at the rate they hit him in the regular season in the regular dealers season. You can hit three four five home runs in a game. You look like worldbeaters that all of a sudden you go up against one and two starters throughout the course of a series. They don't come as easy. And all of a sudden the mighty lineup lineup isn't so mighty anymore now. You're struggling for runs on the board next thing. You know you come short of your goal. I think they've done that with what you know with with the DJ Kayla make use of the world even What's his name? Gleyber Torres now is going to be there as he was last year. They've got different pieces. I don't think it's only about the home homerun but when you rely on it you know that's where you know come October baseball. It doesn't work sometimes and it hasn't right and that's another problem when there's such a disparity you know when you've got the Baltimore Orioles nineteen times and you just toy win. The extremes of what the astros are what. The Red Sox were in their championship year whereas compared to the Kansas city royals the Detroit Tigers. The Baltimore Orioles. Even the Toronto Blue Jays you fall into a false sense of the security of what you can do and why will it be different this year. The Orioles have done nothing. It won't be you can make the case. Baltimore is going to be worse this year than they were last year. Yeah so you've you've got nineteen more with them that's probably eighteen. Guaranteed wins which sounds absurd. But it's probably true so you're right about that the unbalanced schedule because of worth these teams are probably is a false sense of security at some point. Let's go ahead quick before the break. What's going on Anthony in Belleville? Good Morning Ko. Oh erectile all the fan as you to shave your beard before you sign your contract. How would you deal with that? I love it and I would explain to. Dan Like we are on your wife would My wife would hate me. That'd be number one but I'd also explain to them like we're on on television every day and my appearance is going to not that it's great to begin with but it's going to be far worse if I shaved this is not going to ain't brings up a great point though you. I grew up with this radio station. Yeah intern here. All of that. This was your dream job. Yeah so here's your question New York. FA N. morning morning drive. Yeah same offer in Boston. LA or Chicago fine everywhere except here. Greg Bend over. I don't know why that's relevant okay. Man Money's the same and it's great you got you gotta remember. Though the the reason why it's a hundred percent I'd have to shave is the fact that I grew up here and I lived here. This is all right to live right while you wanna do that but okay but well you know why you you get it. Could I hate him. This morning is not the data talk about wanting to live here. Yeah but it's the war in our lives in some point in our lives will probably leave here. But now's not the time you know what I'm saying like this. This is the stage here though. I am shoes. Jared Cole is a lifelong Yankee Fan. Okay so as a lifelong as long Yankee fancy. Here's where here's ain't gonNA put up or shut up lifelong Yankee Fan. Yeah you're going to choose the red sox because of your beard now. He probably wouldn't know a Yankee Fan. Shave it up. I would definitely. I'd end up shaving if the shoe would. If they said that it's either contingent on you being here. Not then then I would shave your balls. Yeah I would probably have to shave my balls that mind. I think that's probably a good piece of advice anyway but I don't necessarily know that they could put that in a contract yet. You you face. That's a different thing and David Wells did not. Apparently we did. That was allowed correct on that. Oh Wow this is not is allowed. Just not grizzly Adams cotija weird. I'm not a goatee. Got Some people look good. We'd go t's I've never done that. Did you ever go. T wants all I did with the trying to hang onto my hair goatee. Yes yes that when you first got to fan or prior to. Oh I had it in Florida than I had that fan you did. Oh yes this is what. I didn't know him when he was here. What's the worst facial hair choices that like the soul patch? You keep the peace underneath your lip. He'll it's interesting. It's got a bunch of tattoos for some reason to go. I don't know why that is pretty cool with the go diego. A bunch of Bob Dwyer had just the sole patch. Yeah and actually looks pretty good on him. Yeah he's got have to shave the head he's got the task right like it wouldn't look good on you God. You can't really grow a beard right. I cannot but I did have a goatee. At one. Point was terrible. yeah go t's not good for me the shape of my face. It's just not because I got the you know just around face. It accentuates the big round moon face s US looking face all right. It's Jerry N._G._O.. This morning with boomer off he's out in L._A.. Make it a bunch of money film in a super bowl commercial on the fan and C._B._S. sports network.

"Live from the Investors Bank Studio Borough Sizing Greg Jian Audie boomer and Geo on the fan simulcast across the country on. CBS Sports Network The Wednesday morning. We're getting closer to a football game. That could really really send the New York jets even deeper for. Yes you thought. The Rock bottom was possible after the dolphins game that was it. NOPE it can get even deeper than that if they end up getting embarrassed by the giants giants and metlife stadium. That apparently has three hundred feral cats living in it. And you got major league. Baseball free agency opening up its early. Yes official official now like you can do whatever you want. But as we've seen in years past it takes months and months and months and months the sign the big name. Free agents guys guys like Anthony ran down guys like Stephen Strasburg and yes guys like Garrett Cole and you've got to interesting things three interesting things happen in yesterday. Ashtray one astros teammates reportedly Garrett Cole saying they think he's going to southern California. You Got Merano and Scott Boris. There's two guys that don't necessarily get along with the angels. And then you've got see Sobat via saying to Garrett Cole spending a bunch of time on the phone saying hey I'm I am a California guy and then I went to New York with the Yankees and look at my career aware that ends up is going to be the big chip that falls and Free Eight Z. We'll Garrett Colby be a Yankee and right now I got no clue good morning boomer our jail I I would just say this about Garrett Cole is that In regards to the angels we happen talking about this. The angels have had had an awful awful off season already as soon as their season ended the. Da was in their clubhouse. Talking to guys is like Matt Harvey and the Pr Guy. There that went out and got the drugs for about four or five players on this team. And it's a mess out there. And I think they're starting to rebuild that mess was started with Joe Madden and I think now it's going to continue with Garrett Cole I would think I would think already. Marina would pay the most money the longest the longest contract That they possibly can Garrett Cole because he's trying to change the story around that team and the only way you do that is by bringing in big personalities and great players so you might remember. You Got Mike Trout sitting out there and you know they they they just like they have not found their ways and then when this whole drug thing broke on them the best way to get out of it I think is to try to get as far away from from it as you possibly can and you do that by distracting everybody and bring in guys like Joe Madden and Mickey callaway and then of course if you got Garrett Cole to go along with them and be a great offseason but yeah I mean this. This is a distraction with very long term consequences. Though I mean this is not something that press conference is going to wipe away and then that's it. I mean you're we're GonNa Have Garrett Cole there for two hundred fifty million dollars for the better part of a decade if not more right yeah so I mean. I know that the Astros seemed to be a team. That's ruled out at this. His point by the way the Garrett Cole acted after the World Series with Scott Boras hat as opposed to Houston Astros hat. They said that. Maybe you're one of the era beat reporters that maybe go over the luxury tax in order to sign Garrett Cole but that seems unlikely to me what it's GonNa come down to his. He's a Boris Guy. Scott Boras weights this thing out to get the best offer. He's got the Boris Hat on ten minutes. After it gets eliminated from the world series. Says I'm not an employee of the team. He is going to go to the team that pays him the most that to me. He is the only thing that makes sense right now. And either the Yankees are going to say. This is the guy that we have to break the bank on. Forget about some of the bad contracts cracks that we have on the books the ells berries and the stands that means nothing this Garrett Cole thing is a different animal and we have to do this and we have to outbid the angels or for their steadfast in their approach. which is? We're going to take it to this level. And if he goes somewhere else and he goes somewhere else. I mean that's really what Garrett Garrett Cole is about right now when you're Scott bores guy. Same thing with Rendell. When I think and same thing with Stephen Strasburg who also Boris guys? It's GONNA come down to every last dime what I'd like. I'd also like to know I'd like to know the status of Domingo Herrmann. Yeah what is the status of Dha. Nobody is written anything. Nobody has said anything. Nobody knows anything thing. And that's that's something to look at. It is look at the Astros right. They handled it horribly. But just that whole situation you're clubhouses a tough thing different story. I mean you know that that that thing that happened with the Astros was because of some numb nuts you know in the front office decided to be a tough guy and start yelling idiotic things to female reporters. I don't get it. Why guys put themselves in that situation like that? I don't understand that it's it's just idiotic. The point being is that the player was playing the Houston Astros gave them another chance. Everybody deserves another chance if they paid their price and they go through the system Mingo through everything that needs to be done. You know. I'm not I don't know where to Mingo. Her MOM will end up. If you'll ever end up on a Yankee team again I don't know but he's not going to end up not playing playing baseball anymore. Sure he's going to play baseball someday. I just don't know when it is or who is four to top one right because like you know if you're the Yankees you know this guy throughout throughout his entire career. He makes his horrible horrible thing he does. I'm not I'm not even in a corner mistake because I don't think those mistakes are like you know forgetting to set your alarm arm at night. That's not slapping a a woman in front of people at a charity event. That's not a mistake. I mean that's a heinous act so then he commits this heinous act in you know. Oh not that. It's a good place to do it but do it in a public place in front of Major League Baseball officials one of his team's teammates charity events. Is that a guy you want to bring bad. That's the point I don I I you know who knows. I mean. He'll be pitching somewhere. Someday I just don't know where And I think that's also something that is looming over the Yankees decision that they have to make to. Yeah and you know. That's why I think I think the backup plan. It sounds like you know you read all the commentary and you hear all the opinionated voices and everything out there all all the Yankees have to sign Zach. That's after Zach. Woo after Zack Wheeler I think that probably is not the first thing that they would like to do but if they ended up having to their pitching staff he was probably going to be the guy. They'RE GONNA go after if they if they assume that Garrett Cole Sobat the apparently really you know a couple of things about him you know. He's obviously retired now. He's going to do as media thing. He mentioned how he talked to Garrett Cole as I said about being a California guy and then come into New York you also was quoted saying if you give that mother bleeper enough money. He's GonNa WanNa come here so he knows as well he understands understands the business better than anybody if you give the mother bleeper enough money. He will want to come here. I just I. Just don't I mean you mentioned Zack Wheeler the Pivot Zack Wheeler. I mean that's if already Merano in the angels decide to go that extra mile to get Garrett Cole and Garrett Cole doesn't get that type offer from the Yankees and then they say all right. I know that this this kid Zack. Wheeler Can Pitch New York. We know that we can get him at a at a discount. And that's going to be our plan. B I just don't know after you know forget get about two thousand and sixteen for a second but after your two thousand seventeen eighteen and nineteen now with the Yankees going out in the postseason two two teams that made it to the world series in two out of those three won the world series. I don't know if the pivot is something that is appetizing to their fan. Fan Base to the cheaper option. I don't know if that's something that's GonNa be acceptable again. It all comes down to the angels stones. Seems like they're going to be the major player here. Oh and they go an extra year they go an extra two and a half three million a year. Who knows I mean I? It's hard to say that kid is. He's from there and and everything else and I know that it's going to bat for the Yankees and that's something that you could really appreciate but when you take a look at the Yankees you look at their their long term contract situation. I mean you know they. They're going to have to pay a lot of other guys eventually. This is one of the reasons why if he doesn't resign with the Yankees on a short term. One year. Deal you you know. It's just he is part of the collateral damage for me of bad decisions like Stanton and like Ellsbury. Yeah this is what happens. So you lose quality you know great leaders great clubhouse guys For All intents and purposes a guy that everybody likes the the fans like them And it seems like everybody's been doing but there has to be a reality check when it comes to how much money they're gonNA spend. I know I don't really give a crap. It's their money. They spend as much as you know as much as I want them to spend. But they're gonNA THEY'RE GONNA hold they're gonNA hold steadfast and that's why the decision to bring Stanton here at least right now. Looks like a really bad decision Asian. Because it's going to cost Didi Gregorius. Most likely most likely it's GONNA cost unless he wants to stay here. Yeah if he wants to stay at a discount possibly if there's other teams out there that don't give him a market value. Possibly I mean I know that the Yankees have options because of what happened last year. I mean how many players did they throw into the Infield in a page then ended up doing a good job for you. Know the versatility of Gleyber Torres. I just remember Andrew Harz coming back next year. Yeah you don't know where they see him. They see him in the outfield that they see him as swing. INFIELDER is backed up third. Or we're going to stay there. I mean there's a million questions that they'd have to be answered but you know sometimes injuries take care of these. Thanks sometimes you know an injury happens and all of a sudden some guy finds himself like we saw this this year throughout the year because we all thought he was going to be the swing guy move around he was gonNA play but he wasn't going to be then he becomes a central figure to the success of the a Yankees this year. So you have to think you know. Where are they going to go especially with Andrew who are coming back or is he trade chip for somebody else? I mean who knows I mean these are a million questions that the Yankees have got to answer and part of the fun of the Hot Stove League is trying to figure it out and we're going. I guess the biggest question they need to answer is why can't they hit in the postseason. That's the biggest answer your you think about twenty seven two thousand eighteen twenty nineteen not being able to get the big hit in the big moment man has been their downfall more than anything else. So yeah I still think even with that being a fact and not an opinion that it was the offense really held them back more than anything in the story is in the in the series against the Astros you. I still think that starting pitching and upgrading. That puts them in a hell of a lot better situation to go and win a championship campionships. But if you're Brian CASHMAN and his entire group of Analytical Mary men who are looking at why the Yankees failed again to win a championship. Campione chip you know. They're not going to come up with numbers that say that we need to improve the staff. Tanaka has two years left two years left on his his initial seven year deal. He's a free age actually have one more year. He's a free agent in two thousand twenty one. Okay all right Jacoby. ellsbury is a free agent in twenty twenty two. Now he's still there's still two more years of ellsbury right Man who more one of those a club option or something and there's gotta be some sort of relief. They're coming up now. No ellsbury earn a the salary of twenty one million one hundred forty two thousand eight hundred fifty seven a while carrying total salary of the same number so oh he's got next year this coming season. He's on the books this coming season and then twenty twenty one as well. You're telling me yeah well. Yeah that's the. He's a free agent Asian toll one hundred twenty two. I mean that's when he'll retire right I would think so. There's just I never know what he thirty six thirty seven now. Yeah but so there are a couple bet you know. Obviously you have the Stanton contract at twenty five million per year and he doesn't become a free agent until twenty twenty nine right. I mean you know now to Nakas coming off the off the rolls twenty twenty one so but then with all of that we also have to remember that the Yankees have to pay some of these younger longer guys arbitrate. That's the point. Yeah so that that is always the that's always the thing that's got to be in the back of their minds being Giancarlo Stanton. There's still a chance that he comes back and ends up. A being a factor for them. I know that it's really really hard to say that. And have any sort of faith in that but there is a chance that he can be a player that Ellsbury we know. Oh He's done but it's not like Giancarlo Stanton couldn't get together have a healthy season and hit forty home run one hundred. RBI is next year but the point being. This is Tanaka's last year. Yeah so so you know. He's making twenty three million so these these are the things that you've got to be thinking about. If you're Brian Cashman you've got to you and I'm sure they all are over there trying to figure all this stuff out the money out out see whether or not they need to move somebody acquire someone see if they can get somebody to take on a bad contract if that's at all possible which I doubt but they only have really bad contracts right. I mean it's it's really only ellsbury insane. There's no other bad contract that they have or even guys that are making that much money that they're gonNA WANNA part with Aroldis Chapman no way no plus remember they just gave Hicks and Severino money but Hicks is not going to be available next year. Those are those are team friendly deals. I know I know but but Hicks is not going to be available so there you go. You already have your first injury going into next season. Yeah I know like Gorey's last year the debt but the right exactly that at injury I think is going to is going to make them want to resign Brett Gardner and they should. I mean after the season that he had a why not now I understand. There's there's a couple of times in the postseason that drove you. Nuts seem hitting third and and not delivering but I mean as far as versatility and what he brings to the team. There's no reason not to bring him back at this point unless you feel like there's another guy in a light Kim who's younger that maybe you could bat third in a postseason. If you have all the injuries you have again but I think there's no reason not to bring back proved himself again. He did not look like he regrets it all. I mean who say. It's the baseball or whatever I mean. His power numbers were were through the roof this past past year. So I mean this is this is where it starts but we know that it doesn't end anytime soon. I remember with the Free Agency opening. And then you get closer to Thanksgiving used is to read all the articles about the hot stove warm up around and then the winter meetings would happen some time in December and stuff would just start flying at that point. You know now how it's been the winter meetings come and go and the top guys are not even signed when spring training starts and I wonder if that's going to be another situation like like we have again and is it going to be another off season where you're seeing few is go but then these older players hang around. Don't get side yes I am now going to the IMG Academy all that stuff is that what's going to happen again. I would have to say probably because I don't think these general managers have changed their tune in one off season. I don't think guys like with thirty. Two years old had into free agency year. We're going to get ten years at the thirty million dollars. Does an apple a guy like todd. Frazier is GonNa have a hard time. Yeah he's going to have to take a unfortunately for him see but then again. This is the fight that I go back to. I've been talking about this. I feel like forever ever for the last eight or nine years where these analytics guys the guys out of the world come in and all of a sudden change the dynamic mcadoo way people are thinking now. I think that if you are Tony Clark the head of the Major League Baseball Players Association. You've got to do something about it. The arbitration rules are restrictive strict of and they're keeping salaries down and the GM's have changed the way they do business so when you last negotiated your CBA. It was under a different different way of doing things now. All of a sudden that has shifted financially guys are still getting paid. But they're not getting paid what they thought they were going to get. Paid the top guys in the reason why you can't talk about collusion or you can't talk about a players strike or whatever else is the top guys are still getting top dollar. Bryce Harper Machado Auto. These guys are still getting to know one are not all these guys are still getting ridiculous conflict. You gotta remember what they it's ridiculous our is but it's not ridiculous in there is because initially they thought that those contracts should be in the neighborhood of four hundred million not three hundred million get still three hundred million dollars now dude again. I'm not saying that that's it's not a lot of money I am. I'm telling you internally at the Players Association they're saying that these salaries are depressed. It's hard for you and I to even imagine that. Yeah but they're thinking that there should be bigger growth or better growth so I'm just telling you how they're thinking you can't think of it like a fan now. It's like when we talk about the Yankees. I don't care how much money they spend. They spend as much as I want them to spend their money. Yeah and they're charging me big numbers for tickets. I want you to spend the money if you want me to buy. Your tickets. Bought the competitive balance tax. That's holding teams back right. which which which again the competitive balance tax is something that ten years ago wasn't wasn't in place Yeah so now. It's a whole different system and if you'RE GONNA if you're GONNA hold players like Anthony were known he's finally a free agent. How old is he young guy but I mean these you know? He's not twenty. Who Lives Twenty nine? Yeah He's twenty point. He said he he should have been free when he was twenty five. Yeah that's the thing. That's that's the crux and that's when you get into this whole thing about you know holding a guy back in spring training because because you want you don't want him to start his yet. Also I mean you did have Bryce Harper Manny Machado at twenty five years old guys. Do that's two guys okay but those are two humongous examples. I WanNa see it will be interesting to see what Ren Dawn and what Garrett Cole get here because this will tell us a lot this will give us a real sense as to whether or not free agency is what it used to be or what its become boomer and Geo just getting started on this Wednesday morning on the fan across the country on CBS CBS. Sports radio DOT COM to have some in studio guests with us this morning Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson. NBA lifers on now. The the new shell with showtime they will join us in Julie Stewart. Banks is going to join us. Maybe she'll be a colleague of ours at some point She's going to be joining us in Studio Elliot. I was shocked about. I didn't know that. Did you know that she's got a new. TV show that she's got a new show. She's pumping I thought that's why we're putting her John McCain. Who knows maybe audition? Yeah you never know. It could be an audition all right eight the morning show with boomer Esiason and Gregg Giannotti boomer and Geo. Oh Jerry RECCO is here. He's got an update. What's going on Jerry morning brought to you by the Raycatena Auto Group scheduled appointment today? At a rate ten is service center for First Class Service Service at affordable prices a lot of different ways to start so we'll go with the NFL and we'll start with the story that did circulate yesterday about the chargers being open to having discussions about moving to London found that kind of weird and it turned out it was weird later. In the day chargers owner Dean Spanos did tell reporters how he felt about the story and the rumors. I know there's been a lot of crap going around the last twenty four hours about this London thing and I just want to give you a quote for me. Okay it's totally okay okay. We're not going to London. We're not going anywhere. We're playing Los Angeles Spanos. ABC Sandiego pile of bullcrap bullcrap. Well you're not far off. How exactly did you feel about the article? Okay okay there you go. I say this though for him I I think the article is crap but I think it's a lot has to do with the problem that they're not selling tickets for the new stadium and and they should have remained in San Diego instead of giving a six hundred and fifty million dollar relocation fee which they had to do to move to L. A.. They should give that money right to San Diego and help build a new stadium right there so stupid but saying all of this I'm telling you. The Jaguars Atlanta groundwork to go to London. I I think I you know you. You start hearing all these things about you know and we need hotels downtown. This people are leaving downtown after games. And all this other stuff I mean you could. You could hear it out of the the ownership group of the Jacksonville. Jaguars Jaguars play over there. A number yeah plus shot con the owner. There does on a soccer team. So I'm Tanya on Ya eventually. They're going to get a team over there I think it's the Jaguars Myself Man I mean. It just seems so complicated doesn't it. I mean it's one thing to have a couple of teams build their by by around it and you send them over there few times a year. It's another thing to have a team play. All their home games are going to be the London Jaguars or whatever. That's a EH team. There I know but my point is that it just seems complicated. You can't play a Thursday night game over the air. Can you play a Monday night. Game over there it says you have to. They can come. They can come back here. Come on a three game road trip and say I mean it's like flying from New York to Seattle for three going to keep up three weeks the jets and the giants. Hi It's can go to Seattle or they'll come over for two weeks. Whatever I mean you can make it work? I don't know if it's a whatever I think it's I think it's more complicated than that. It just seems I know I I know Italian is so popular over there. One of our guys was over there at the CBS NFL today deal was over there for our CBS game a few weeks ago and he goes man. This is it the the the places sold out everybody's wearing jerseys everybody's into it. He goes on this one of the reasons why the NFL continues to do it. And and by the way the NFL has money. I believe in Tottenham's stadium the new stadium that was built over there. Yeah it was actually built for American football. I'm not saying that they're not Thinking about it seriously. I just think that it seems logistically. Seems more complicated than people are making it now. The question is do they expand or do they take one. Their member clubs website is not doing well at the gate and Jacksonville would be the team or the chargers. Be One of the two. Those are the two that are having the the hardest bio also say the Falcons too by the the stadium. Neither of the bengals. Yeah A. Nobody's coming to watch the BENGALS. I mean nobody but you know it's like a third of what it used to be a week ten in the NFL will open up on Thursday night. Football with the chargers and the raiders Jon Gruden thoughts Thursday night football. I ate this. I don't believe even this Thursday football I I. I'M NOT GONNA be on my soapbox anymore than they've had a terrible scheduled to start the year man and they've some overcome Eh. All over. This is not a bad game actually turns out but I mean you think about it you know. They had to go to London and they had to go like that a road trip and been home in a month and a half. It's so good for them. Able to stay afloat and be five hundred Giants Defensive Back Antoine Buffet with Joe and Evan on the fan yesterday one of the first things he was asked after the loss of the cowboys was getting that early interception and then just a couple of minutes later the defense back on the field with only a three nothing lead as the offense couldn't get the ball in the end zone we talk about playing complementary football Playing off one another and that's one thing that we haven't been doing well this year and then he flipped didn't said but it ain't just the offense. We've done the job. Either with the defense would also close down schools and yeah we come out and We let the uphold the team scored uh-huh so you can hear that entire interview pat terms gotta take the offense got to continue to work on red zone. Just keep calling same. Plays and keep working at working. It and your rookie quarterback is just gotTA continue to learn. That's all we're we're in the middle of a building process. That's all I can tell you. That's as the Rangers are doing. That's what the giants are doing what the jets are about ready to start doing. And the Knicks are doing it. I mean you know the devils have been in the process of trying to do it for the last couple years. It was just amazing. New York sports we rebuild teams trying to rebuild trying to rebuild team. Yes the Panthers Cam Newton on season ending foot injury. Possibly Liaoning is time there on the Jaguars going back to their free agent pickup for their next game Decision on the quarterbacks and then Nickleby or or starting starting quarterback going forward and humanely as it's over. Yeah wonder makes you Gordon and miss you shoe. Oh Yeah we're going to miss you. You Will Miss Minnie shoe. They will play. We sent him down there at interview. Put the my wife cried on. 'em Jerry did he was. That was the turning point. We feel feel like every time we do like an eye vision or something. It's like the melodic. Didn't I vision on the packers. Last week packers the packers offense audit could run the ball. You know they can impose their will. Well sure about that. We are very shook out that all right just make sure the Yankees. So what are they going to do with Garrett Cole they go out and get them. So you've got C C Sabathia on this podcast. He does the are to see to podcast. podcast he does it with Ryan. Ruko our C..

This is shaping out like the same off season as an ice and then there's the other quote they take it out was something about offering him a whole boatload of money and this mother bleeper and not. You gotta give up enough money going to want to call your mother bleeper. Oh you can go. He can cursing the podcast as Al.. Al Has a filthy mouth on the podcast mouth. Sexiest edited out a lot of. Did you not I act as if I'm on broadcast radio talk about that. Is he making it up up there. You know that because he edits it out Lakers released twelve. I don't but I have occasionally edited out yourself a hall Chicago Thirty Gene and the fourth quarter. The hawks beat the Spurs or one eight to one hundred trae a young twenty eight of his twenty nine into the second Nixon Detroit. Tonight can't wait for that. College basketball began last night. You had a double header at the garden. Number Four Duke beat number number three Kansas Sixty eight sixty six coach K.. Getting out to a wonderful start really happy with my team.

Oh five seventy one yellen. Mammoth one is well last night tonight. You've got saint. John's opening at home against Mercer and Sierra loss of Minka was parked car there and Syracuse is home for. Virginia's got a good team. No I just Saint Johnson go through with this year. We know that everybody knows that. I think they'll win tonight. Gilbert her way to go out on a limb loss. I know I was being facetious. I don't really really believe they're gonNA lose to mercer but along year more basketball death in the city and I am. I think infections Sion's mercer when I hear Mercer I think of infections. Oh Okay I don't know I don't like that. I work on infections. Infections at Mercer Mercer no worries mercer we even though we're hi. Oh Okay what part of Ohio Eastern it could be an Alabama for you. Don't even know Mercer College Universities. You Think Indiana the Anna feel like Indiana. That's not right I'm going to say mercer is in it. I was as Georgia uh-huh is it a community college. No that's New Jersey Mercer University Community College now the thing that popped up. I think it's Georgia Georgia. I think it's Giorgia all right. Well there you go now we talk about all the rebuilding being done in in New York and Georgia Georgia or Georgia. It's surveyed Savannah Georgia. I got it now. Seems like a nice place to be Savannah. Yeah you ever watch matlock news from Savannah I used to be now. Now you binge-watching new show daily. Yeah I used to Binge Watch matlock law and order really in Matlock Ben Matlock. He was from Savannah. Georgia never know. Matlock yeah I heard a matlock. Who Has I knew matlock? Before I knew the Andy Griffith show you did yes. Why does the same guy same guy? Well you're older. Yes I know I am. Islanders are not rebuilding it. All matter of fact they are winning. Yeah a lot the moment you dream about as a kid growing up to play in the NHL and that's one Jibril's burn national on MSG pretty cool right. Yeah you know this. This matthew bars held kid is is unbelievable. He is a top five player in the League. I don't care and yeah I got a chance to watch them last night and I actually saw a very rare sighting. CALC Lauterbach goal. I'm Casey I guess I don't need that so ya ah four won. They wound up beating the senators. Ten game winning streak now. Second longest in franchise history. Thomas Christ made twenty seven saves and the devils beat the jets and a shootout two one miles blackwood with thirty two saves their rangers Red Wings. Tonight what do you think the tuition for a year at Mercer is forty four thousand dollars as a little less forty forty forty grand a year to go to Mercer Than Savannah. It's the the prices of colleges are ridiculous. GotTa make sure that you're paying the tenured professors. Oh yeah those guys all gotta get paid when you leave you leave with all of the debt. Yup that's the way it goes. Sure everybody's getting paid and seems like a great sense are it's the morning show with boomer Esiason and Gregg Giannotti boomer and Geo we opened up talking about Garrett Cole and Major League Baseball Free Agency but you know what stops it's GonNa drag on and on and on and on for the rest of time until February before we find out when these guys are gonNA sign. Hopefully that isn't the case we we find out by the end Two Thousand Nineteen but I doubt it. Did you see the Social Media Snafu or list like a minor snafu with the mets yesterday yes I saw. Yeah so brody Van Wagon and he. The law is a little like instagram pictures. Put out there when things are going well and right now they feel like things are going. Well they hired Carlos Beltran plan. I am yeah right exactly so stuff like this spring training or you know or whatever like scenes. We'll take a picture in an office or your their years with this group group of guys. It'll put it up there on instagram. So he takes a picture of Carlos Beltran and Omar Moniz in there and somebody else I don't know if it was Allard Baird or or not and then the desk and there's a bunch of papers on there and then Omar Moniz phone is open and there's an email that you could basically read and I mean it was nothing of consequence in the emails. It was like a great stuff Omar but then underneath that piece of paper was a stack resumes and on the top of the resume. Was Jerry Narron. Who was a bench coach candidate? You'll formerly with the with the diamondbacks and he's on the top of stack resumes so everybody everybody just flew into the top. Yeah food to the top Jerry. Narron he will Philip Glass so what they do is they. They put the zoo. Everybody's zooms in they see Jerry Narron and then they start asking questions like is this guy candidate. What's he going to be? Is he going to be the bench coach so they have to say yeah. Well obviously but it's like it's just so stupid like don't do like what if there it was something else on that said when we let Zack Wheeler walk. Or we're not going to have our payroll over this about him. I think that could be something here is here is is my unsolicited advice. For All the major league teams around here. Yeah Number one I would say bill. Bell check is a good barometer as to what you should try to be from a public standpoint. Don't tell anybody anything about anything you know. Just just you know go through the mundane everyday. Yeah while what would just all we're onto Cincinnati also the crap you don't get yourself into all this all this crap right. Like the justice came out of unwind. Wire the jets dragged into the sewer pit of the media and the social media world. Why why is that team that way but no other team is that way right? I take a look at the islanders right. So when the deck and Malkin really wanted to be taken seriously and legitimately yeah. What did they do they went and got brick and Lou Lamoriello and what Lamelo Lamilla do what? We're GONNA do this the way it's supposed to be done and we're going to keep it and we're not gonNA tell anybody anything we're not gonNA make a big. Oh how dramatic ace. Because they lost gionta bears forgot. Say Yeah but you gotTa came through it and they went to the playoffs. You know why because that's a mindset set that has set forth by the people that are running the organization and they do it the right way. They're not tweeting and instagram. ING and sharing bull crap all over the place stop it. Stop acting like a like a junior. Varsity aspirin acted like a frequent professional. And do it the right way. Well I think every team uses social the media. You don't need it you know I'm telling you if you WANNA you WanNa you WanNa make your fans happy. Go Out and win. That's that's how you make your fans happen. Let me see how many instagram followers to the jets. Have The New York jets have six hundred ninety seven thousand instagram. It follows c the teams love this because they get control their message through social media. Your players are out there doing something in the community and they're they're helping the cause and they're doing positive things and having a positive influence. I'm all for that. I don't need to see your executives high five in the offices. It's ridiculous the whole all things ridiculous all right so six hundred ninety seven thousand followers on instagram giants. Have I would say two million one point nine million. How about how the Patriots have Let's see Ya gotTa have like three million five nine. Who knows some four point one? Yeah no but so what are they put out there. They put out things that their players are doing on their off time or a okay. Corporate thing charitable things for A. Hey you know it's a can drive like the giants head of that kind of thing right. That's kind of thing you need to be put out there. But like brody though man like his personality is to be bold and to be this this frontman four or this extravaganza. He's not gonNa ever change the fact that he took a little bit off his fastball. In this press conference it didn't go. We're GONNA win a championship every single a year. That was a step in the right direction. But he's still going. We have the capabilities to do anything in the off season and Carlos came here to beat our opponents. And you know like he's still doing that stuff because that's because he's an agent. Yeah that's how we as an agent. I never been a general manager I lauded him for the stroman trade because it gave the I. Think the the mets protection this year. If they lose wheeler which most likely they will yeah So that was a smart move it also also signal to the team that you know. They were not giving up in the front office that they were going to try to make a run for it which they almost did so. I give him credit for that. But I mean this this whole what kind of feel around the team just isn't it. Feels like goofy allergies. The mets the mets field goofy feels the whole thing. Feels I want to tell you. I don't know like I kind of felt like the goofiness. Some of the goofy just went out the door with Mickey Calloway and they replaced Mickey callaway with a really respected baseball guy. Like I think some of that goofiness Kinda evaporated with that particular move. You still think that there's an air of goofiness with so they're putting out instagram photos. And everybody's you know zooming in on it and everything and looking at what's on the guy's desk. Ah We don't need this whole thing feels goofy. What else to tell you the goofy thing? I hope I hope it. I hope that Carlos Beltran Iran has emotional tether with all the players. Yeah I think he will I think you will. I think he's GonNa be all right but I just what I'm worried about is what this roster looks like going into the season because that's what's going in a matter more all right. It's the morning show with boomer Esiason and Gregg Giannotti boomer and Geo. I don't want to do anymore. Lane cat run on the appealed. Talk by there's one thing that boomer said yesterday that ended up being all over the place and he was the first one so this doesn't mean as much as like a big the free agent signing or breaking news. Yeah right exactly but you were the first one I mean. How stupid is that? By the way that whole beat writer patting each other on the back crap like Oh. I'm here to confirm the story. This guy I like. Nobody gives a bleep about that but anyway their world they do I guess but then fine text each other right why you tweeted out. Well they got mad at me when I announced that the you know the the lockout for the killing you they were does. How does he know well? This is another another one you could put on your resume as the metlife stadium is overrun by stray cats by feral cats. Feral cats stray feral cats. And that's something that you had on this show show yesterday. We were I would that you said that. They're all over the place and they eat the mice in the rats within the bill. They're fed they're fed by the you know by the cleaning crews and everything else. They're very very well taken care of now whether or not they get their shots or not. I have no idea. I mean you do not want to get bit by one of them. Oh yeah without a doubt. I mean those are disease carrying felines aligns one hundred percent. I mean this sounds like a Disney movie though. Does it like three hundred cats living in a football stadium like this really. It sounds like the plot for a a Disney movie is one big giant orgy. What's going on over there? Ask you is just think about all the cats sex. That's going on right right now yes. It's just concerts. They're not spayed or they're pumping out kittens. I mean it's going to be in the next year's going to be another three hundred. I mean think about this. You want to see if you could grab some free agents for the Kitten Bulb. That's where he died. You got the built in roster this pussy feathers. It'd be like south shore cats. You know what I'm saying. It'd be gritty they'd be they'd be battlefield like the hunger games of the KITTENS. Dying cats are I just that that to me is something. That's gotta be taken care of. No it's not gonNA stop if you're over there. You could actually from time to time. You'll hear legitimate intimate hardcore catfights really all. Yeah wow I mean just going after each other just doing your normal job of their metlife stadium like in the season ticket people all. They're trying to get people to renew about. Most of it is down in the bowels of the state. It's not going to be up. That's where it's going to be now. But like is the more they multiply these cats. It's been going on for years and years and you're looking at him had them to three which I bet you city field has cats especially especially over there at the chop shops and everything. This little cat just came out there and it was like what is going on here to hear that they work was good luck for them. Hi this is This is jared from season ticket office over the jets. I was just checking to see if you wanted to renew your re- renew your plan. Hello hello can you hear me. I just wanted to see you last you. You bought a half season plan last year. We want to see the Korea. Do you play the the same email address email the sales every I would have cash right. uh-huh Joe Douglas. This is why Joe. Douglas didn't make any of the trade deadline. He's GM's are called Jerry ooh Jerry Jerry. It's me Jake Douglas. Hey what's what's now Jamal Adams. What's that sound? Just it's Adam gas water feeding of his four hundred tax cat owner now. No no at Adam Gates probably owns like some sort of exotic pet snake or something pipe the talks to then sleeps with. That's probably sleeps in the seventy S. Yeah so the. There's a whole society of those cats hopes Sir Feline ferals. That means there's probably Feline Poop all that. Well that's another thing like these cats aren't using toilets. These aren't these are the litterbox over there. Dan Man now that'd be a good idea to put a bunch of them all over the place but then you gotta train them to do that. Nobody's he's doing that. There's gotta be somebody now. Works in Metlife Stadium. That is taking care of these cats everyday basis like there has to be. It's like the the quoted the security guard yesterday one of the security guards. You're cleaning crews. They take care of the cafe feed the cats. The cats are very well taken Keira. It's not like they're they're they're free. Range Cats metlife stadium in the word gets out with cats man. I'm telling you they. The word gets out words. The word gets out. I'm not I'm not kidding. You the cats will tell the other cats like hey over. Here's where you WANNA be. Well why would you do that. If you've got good thing setup why would you want other people over because it's it's about it's about species sustainability. All right it's part of an instinctual thing thing that they want to continue to grow. They're like that's what I don't understand. How much Sushi? They're thrown out that kind of. Oh yeah well listen. I won't tell you where where I was but I saw a lot of food getting thrown out once at a big function. Yeah and I could not believe how much food is getting thrown out and if that happens pins on a sports level. Yes what I saw. I can't imagine how much food is these. These cats are are lapping up. Let's go to Anthony and Livingston New Jersey Anthony. What's what's happening? Hey guys listen I just had to make you laugh jail. You're talking about on the cat's Outta metlife heard yesterday that when they tore down the Old Boston Garden actually found monkey remains. They had monkeys living under the Boston Garden Stadium and they said it was because the monkeys had scapegoating. The cats are bad at metlife. Imagine having come on it's true monkey. I'm reading this really. Yeah the mystery of the Boston Garden Monkey so I guess yeah they demolished it in nineteen ninety eight and they. It's one monkey not monkeys. It was one monkey. They found the mysterious Boston Garden. Monkey urban so I guess the well that's probably what it had to be would've would've happened right. I mean the circus comes into town. Mikey a Gal always talks and Jerry talks about. When they parked their cars early in the morning they see like rats the size of cats there? I mean so you can understand. It is what it is at metlife. I mean they're over there also control the rat and mice problem. Yeah I I get it. But I mean it's a domesticated animal and there's hundreds of them a place like metlife stadium with a running out onto the field. I mean this. This is not like a a rodent problem like this. This is a domestic people. Choose to have these cats in their homes. There's three hundred hundred of them. Look at these dogs. That would be the biggest story in America. Let's be real if there were like three hundred Yorkshire terriers were. We're living in metlife stadium and one of them got a feeling like that. That would be the biggest. Everybody'd be talking about it like crazy. That's big like rats and mice and those things cockroaches roaches like whatever we know. That's wild but this is like mind blowing the people. Well let's go to Glen New Jersey. Glenn what's happening over there. I Glen. How're are you doing over there? I'm good good. Listen I was. I was watching youtube the other day. And you can actually google. This disneyworld has two hundred her cats. That won't free. They're taking care of by the staff. There it keeps the The mouse population down onto google. It yeah I mean but are they are these cats. Do they have their shots are they. Okay so that's their shots. I don't know even our they neutered into do they have. If you're telling me that there there is a controlled cat population that is released to take care of the rodents. I'm all for that back but to have three hundred on neutered and spayed cats. You gotTa have noted. That's amazing. How long have we can't you? GotTa they gotta be neutered they gotta be neutered. These cats John and Jack nut cutting time John Jackson. What's happening in Iraq over their they get rid of them? Catch you be overfilled. Rack man cats or rats. What do you want? I wanted to rent the roaring Laura. Let's be realistic. We can't give it a boat. You know what I'm saying. He had joined other. Listen man I feel like poison poison mall just like Gosh Bleach underneath the stands. There's gotta be a way that you can control the Rach without having an out of control cat populations we've had cities we've had rats and then we brought in cats Gansta deal with the rats. It's been going on for six thousand years Eddie. Would you say that's fine. But would you say that three hundred or more three hundred could be a conservative number by the way three hundred or more wild hi old feral cats inside of NFL stadium. That's the problem yes. I agree that you don't need that. Many wouldn't think to control the rats three three or four four cats. Your question. Do you think Yankee Stadium has cats. I'm sure there is there. Are feral cats around in and around Yankee Center. Three hundred of no three hundred hundred. What's bigger than I heard? These were brought in for like a rat problem at the meadowlands and then they kind of racing. You're saying they were brought in at the race track. This is what I heard. Okay and then they kinda made their way over man. Let's face that area over there. They they call it the meadowlands right nice but it is a big swamp area March. Yeah it's marshy wetlands. Yeah Yeah so the cats you know. There's there's a lot of space to roam and do different things to eat rains. Cats man yeah like you said free range cats. I don't know I mean I think that I I want these cats the live. I want them to be to have a nice long life but I mean like metlife stadium to me now. It just feels strange like this whole three hundred. Feral cats thing is too much for May surprise. You know that all these stadiums have this going on. Why would you be surprised? I'm surprised I'm sorry. A AH PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL STADIUM BEING OVERRUN BY STRIKE AT rising demand on the field. Then right one cat ran on the field but that the three hundred hundred report. Three hundred of them Mike and Long Island when he got my I think great idea they should sell the cats the jets or giants get paid and green and blue can make make tons of money out. You'd probably have to pay the NFL licensing licensing fee. Yeah Right which should screw the whole thing. I mean those cats are probably far from being domesticated at this point. You bring one of these. These metlife stray cats out of your barrel very quick couch the other night on Monday night. That cat did not look like it was mentally stable. No no that that that cat's been in through some stuff with them any cats over there this going to be a game where multiple cats are running on this. This is one of three hundred. You're you're going to die like where. Where are they when they die? I don't know I feel like animals. Walk off into the woods to die. They know they're dying and they walk into the woods. Yeah catch ah well you know my my parents had cats they did. He's right about that. They find a place to hide. Adam cases office here like when your dog knows it's dying it'll try to run away and walk into the one of my one of my dogs actually did do that. We're missing him. I thought he actually took off and about about eight or nine hours later. We found him like behind up against the fence underneath some evergreen trees and he just went over lay laid down and passed away quietly. He died with dignity. Yeah I think you're right. I got a line of got a line on not gonNA use right. I have a whole big segment I've been on cast and it turned out to be that way. Yeah I know I sit in one lane cat. Talk like this to me is different like the black cat no superstition. We know the cowboys are looking at type of lanes now like the idea of three hundred. FERAL cats inside metlife stadium is is definitely something. It's interesting to me. Is this and the fact that they're they're multiplying as we. There's there's probably a litter right now. There's a litter. There's fourteen fifteen kittens right now. That just got born in the last two days. Could you imagine if you are a male cat over there. You'll be getting busy seriously. He's leaving you you. You hit the JAP Metlife Stadium Alpha Cat. Yeah Friday what's happening Freddie. Hey Good Morning I think somebody said this morning Maybe go said you don't need three hundred cats to kill the rats right but the rest. I want to eat the cats. Don't Wanna eat the rats anymore. Because they're eating Sushi and all the gourmet food from the Delta Lounge in the the United Rentals Lounge so they don't want to kill rats anymore so ninety three times as many cats to kill the UH little guy the Fred. You're or maters. Yeah you're right fred spoiled spoiled ass cats. Now they're putting food for do their job. So now you've got rats and cats right and the problem is is you now have love the humans that are upsetting the animal food chain. Yeah Yeah we're getting involved in this whole thing and we're giving the cat. Sushi can fingers because because of that the chick chicken finger eating cats we now have the rat populations out control to like now a bunch of the rats and the cats are working together. That's probably what's going on these rats. The rats like listen. We see what's what's happening here right. You guys are getting fed you we. We've had a contentious relationship in the past. How will we get on the same page? And let's work this thing out together and now they're they're planning to overtake the whole place. That's what that's what's in their mind. This is going to be a mutiny. You see one cat. You saw one cat on Monday night. Football weighty fifty cats two hundred rats come out in the third quarter and then they'll have to bring in ferrets to deal with the rats and the cats. I mean think about jets giants. This this is when they're about to strike they just they just sent. They just sent a test balloon out man look on Monday night football at the one guy out there and let's see what happens with everybody. You know we're not messing around to see what happens. Essays Sam Darnold is going to be seeing more ghosts. Man is going to fifty cats eaten. Trim tempore roles. I well you know. The baby eats the morning show with boomer Esiason Gregg Giannotti boomer and Geo got Steven Jackson. We're supposed to Stephen Jackson and Matt Barnes join us in less than an hour. They've got all the smoke. which is a Showtime production but now just going to be Stephen Jackson whatever what happens is you sick now. Sick I don't know he was sick. Colour for am this morning. I don't know maybe punching Derek Fisher in the base. Yeah he's been freely openly talking about that whole thing now I mean I know it's years later but you guys are like You know it's bygones be bygones but I guess they're they're fine now. They've they've settled their situation Matt. Barnes and Derek Fisher. But he's he's just telling the story like the amazing thing is is listening to that whole thing around Derek Fisher as coaching the Knicks S. He's the head coach of the Knicks. Right there her go. She was the head coach of the next. This was happening during training camps. Yes and he left rights he left to go be with Gloria Govan and Matt Barnes. His kids didn't say anything to Matt. Barnes that's the problem that he had with it he was like. LISTEN IF YOU'RE GONNA be hanging around my kids you've got to be a man. Tell me what's going on because we got a previous relationship and then Phil Jackson. Sun Was Matt Barnes agent so they have a conversation he goes. Hey got in a fight with who he goes along with Derek Eric Fisher and then Phil Jackson goes with Derek Fisher. He's supposed to be a practice with the Knicks. We actually Derek Fisher missed a training camp practice Iraq this because he was fighting with Matt Barnes and California a crab higher leads to a crap higher. You know what I'm saying leads crap higher. Yeah Yup Yup Yup Yup. All the bleep starts rolling downhill as they say Roi. Jerry what do you got for us. Man brought to you by direct energy business helping large businesses maximize their our energy spending. You're talking about the Nixon the past the Nixon. The current will be in Detroit. Tonight they'll play the Pistons. Here's David Fidel after practice yesterday says says the team's been accountable for that crappy game Sunday night. I said a lot of ownership what happened to the game was a true first. stinker he yeah also said does not look like Dennis Smith Junior is ready to join them on the trip and if he does probably not ready to return to action because he's been played said that family issue. I think it was a I think a death in the family. If I'm not mistaken which is why he has not been with the team elsewhere. Last night was not a full vote of games but the Lakers were down to the Bulls. The fourth quarter came around in a pass on the private seven on the clock. dribbles it right to the AD for three Anthony Davis it varies a three in his hometown. The score in the fourth quarter. It's Lakers thirty two and Chicago sick. How many times have we seen this now to where a team just drilled and a quarter by a lot and they wound up outscoring them thirty eight and nineteen not as bad as that sounded? Thirty to six but the Lakers due in one thousand nine hundred twelve Lebron James triple double thirty points. Ten rebounds eleven assists and six out of seven and start the year. Hit a six one exactly right Nuggets beat the heat one. Oh nine eighty nine. Twenty one for Jamal. Murray trae young twenty nine twenty eight in the second. Half Hawks over the Spurs one zero eight one hundred Celtics and Hornets one as well college basketball doubleheader at the garden number four Duke over number three Kansas Sixty eight sixty six number two Kentucky beating number one Michigan State sixty nine sixty two and Texas beat northern Colorado sixty nine forty five. Now why would he bring up this game. I would think a CBS sports minute. Maybe tomorrow on this Andrew Jones for Texas returned from leukemia treatments. He has missed almost all all of the last two seasons came back had a career best twenty points last night in twenty nine minutes. It was a great feeling to get back out there. Officially you know back with my team-mates mates played in this summer. Roads is glad to be able to. I don't know court with no restrictions. Glad to see that he is healthy and back playing. You've got twelfth. Both rang Seton Hall. BEAT UP Wagner one. Five seventy one and you're Janis. The Red Storm Take on mercer tonight in their season opener. Syracuse is home to Virginia The Yankees apparently interviewed David Cone for their job is pitching coach. We'll see where that goes and see Sobat the assessment this podcast with Ryan Ruko That if the Yankees offered Garrett Kohl a bleep load of money he will want to come pitch for the Yankees. I think that podcast gets released tomorrow. Thursday think but I'm not sure about the post had the story story and the quotes in him. Panthers put Cam Newton on season ending injured reserve with a foot injury so the question is are his days and Carolina up certainly would make sense the jaguars going back to nick foles as their starting quarterback they play the colts November seventeenth. You also had dean Spanos. The owner of the chargers calling report total. Bs that said the team was thinking about moving to London. The head coach of the chargers. Anthony Land I just found out about the story last night. I mean. I don't think there's anything to it. I know that's not anything to it. WE'RE NOT DOUGLASVILLE distraction. I we're GONNA do tonight. And that's what we're getting prepared for against the raiders on Thursday Night Football College Football Oklahoma plays Iowa state Saturday last time out. They lost a Kansas state. We play Dushi. Not do she on the warm up show between five. Forty five and six say Recurring game show the do the premier. You're this was the premier do a couple of clips and then you tell me at the end if you think it was. Do she not do she. Now we're talking about Jalen hurts now. He's not the one in question here but we will just tell you as he went through his press conference sometime this week. Not sure when He was talking about trying to bounce back and get a victory this weekend this week. I'm so focused on being one and the same answer he gave later on. Those crazy is will matters to me has been one. I know this week and then finally is he would interrupt a reporter. was that same mentality. Oh you had to be WanNa know this week. So it's all about this week and being WanNa know the question of do she do. She is brought to the attention of this next question. Question is this reporter Dushi. You're not just cleared. You prefer winning two losing this week. No answer I just stare do she. Or Not Dushi Ahmadou I think that he is matching. The level of Dushi Niche. That jalen hurts do. That's what I think. I think Jalen her twenty two that thing not saying anything and being kind of a little bit of a little bit of a jerk I feel do she and I think that the reporter was was trying to match that trying to be like all right. You're going to act like this then. I'M GONNA act like this so you would not do. She not do she for that. Very say you probably say not Dushi to then because of where it it started it started. I'm going to say do she going to do she. All around right and I mean you've never been due to a reporter before solve. Yeah right a lot of douches rushes. Yeah there's no question goes being douche okay. Was He warranted in his douches. I I don't know the the sculptured the whole interview and what the background of all this was about right so I didn't see the entire ten minutes right but I'm thinking that they did have anything to do. Would I mean he's a twenty one year old kid playing college football and we're GONNA like attack him as a reporter. Well he's not attacking him and what he's doing is he saying he's getting clarity right right because this guy is not answering any cutting people's questions off the on prefer to be WANNA know this week WanNa know this week like come on just to clear prefer winning two losing this week. It's kind of like it actually. That's like a Dan Lever felt question. Jet Prescott wins. I mean hurts has been around big time college football. You know the the drill with this right you can give you an answer. I would certainly think so. Yes you would think so. So yes so So you have that and they do play Iowa state on on Saturday. NHL The the islanders are red hot. They continue to win. They played the senators. Who beat the Rangers tonight? Prior no issues for the I'll letterboxes against Zeke is the Brandenburg on MSG in Khobar. Dro would snap a one one of the penalty shot in the Turns out to be the first goal all of his career. And then that's Zeke goal and then Josh Bailey would score forty seconds apart in the third four one the final score count them one two three four five six seven eight nine ten straight win. The islanders second longest winning streak in franchise history. They won fifteen in a row back in one thousand nine hundred. Eighty two here was bar dro- great night for for me and that was Obviously a big team win there and then to get the monkey off my back there has been given it to me for misnomer breakways but You know to do it in that fashion. I ah can't stop smiling. twenty-seven Saves Thomas Gray ten in a row so now Their next three games are all at home. And they're all at Brooklyn. I believe so so they have to play Pittsburgh which you know. Obviously they have a hell of a rivalry with then the Florida panthers come to town and then Msci Monir and and and John Taveras and the Toronto Maple leafs coming to town so if they win the next two and they get the twelve in a row taveras could be the one that stops that could deny it. Yeah ebonite continuing devils jets last night and goes to a shootout Mackenzie Blackwood looking for the women doing it here. Line line across the line challenged by comes back and it goes. I N Y can't take out a piece and the devils have to feed it the Winnipeg jets by a score up to two one and so the devils four five and four matlock line with the call the devil's hockey network on radio DOT COM.

Yeah you know the devils get devils are really really kind of as those New Jersey. Oh they're awesome so if you don't do it then Allah you do it. I don't think I have the ability to do that. I know my limits. Listen I didn't think so either. I never done play by play in my life at any level of anything and hockey's the Least Watch sport in my lifetime of the four major team sports. I did it. But you're broadcast or your cable and the adrenaline knows pumping because he's a capable broadcast. I didn't say he's not capable broadcaster.

Go with boomer esiason and Greg Nadi boomer and Geo joining us in studio right now fourteen year. NBA veteran retired apper. Berkoff Years Stephen Jackson who is a part of all the smoke him and Matt Barnes All. The smoke is a showtime Youtube uh-huh video podcasts. As they have a new basketball themed Youtube Channel Showtime and I tell you this show is just great I mean the second that you put it on on your captivated these guys hold nothing back and it is. It's just perfect and it's also perfect because I think you guys are hitting this thing right at the right time because there's so many unbelievable stories in the NBA. So I highly recommend checking out all the smoke Stephen Good morning thanks for joining us. Thanks for having how are you. I'm good I'm happy to be here with a hall of Famer booming. I've been watching my whole life. Damn easy only browns just matches. which is I'm a fly guy so I'm every team? Every imagine smile fit. Well that's great. Well you know State Broadcasting Hall so here. Here's the deal where's your partner. What is sometimes you know? Guys can't get up for the game. Sometimes they have bad games. You have to step up. My boy we'll go with a migraine is one and so I'm holding down there's this whole thing in the NBA right now that supposedly you guys never guy sleep read about this where like there's like sleep sleep apnea throughout the league. Guys can't get to sleep at night after games. You're traveling and you're exhausted. If you have to play back to back so and stuff how true is that. I don't know about them but I slept. Well A medicated myself. Well when I play all of my whole career and and me I've always had that attitude is sleeping died so much I want to do is is so much that I think I wanna WanNa miss especially playing. The game is always something you can do to get better and may amount was guys that we always have something to prove. So I didn't sleep because I didn't want it wasn't because I was tired because I didn't want a two. Now when you say you Medicaid yourself talking about Ambien you're talking about we'd we'd of course no. I never took manmade pills always mitigating ambience stomach stuff. Like freaks wakes me up was addicted to a four minute and now she does the pin now. So-social does she got off to it. Couldn't sleep without skin sleep it on for years years ago. She's good she's good now. Wow No listening to you guys you guys are holding back now. I mean it's like you guys going after people whether it be Derek Fisher you now and stuff and Geo asked you off the air all ask you on the air any blowback from the players. Aim anybody that you've gone after. Well you know I think the thing about with me and Matt we have have a relationship with so many guys. And they don't expect us to sugarcoat anything and You know just say just for example when Kate when I say something about k. d. having a fake eight-page called me but he understood I was coming from a big brother side of it. You're Katie you could say your mind you can say whatever you want to anybody you the best player in the world and it wasn't coming from a place of hate and the guys especially basketball players understand that we love the game. So is the passion for the game. It's not the demean anybody and we disagree with our disrespecting someone. Yeah the Kevin Kevin Durant is fascinating to me because you know I try not to assume I know what these guys are thinking. It'll make time athlete. 'cause it's just not fair right like I don't know the guy never met the guy can't assume assume I know what he's thinking but I always used to have his back because that whole moved to golden state I thought he got way too much criticism for that But the way SORTA acted did. I'm post that talking about the draymond green thing and then coming after my team. The Knicks aren't cool anymore. Like I don't know what to think of the guy. What are you know of Kevin Durant as has the man? Is he too sensitive. Is that what it is he. I'm glad he's we're Kyri now because he has to hopefully carry can robots carry could care less what people think about him. Yeah Nothing Katie. We need to be more than I think Katie. He loves to engage with his fans but at the same time he can't though fire throw gasoline on a fire. You know now when you go to Golden State obviously gone to team where there are already champions so you have to expect people to say okay. You're not you're not to start. We thought you. Are you going to team to say. And then at the same time I understand that the basketball player because you play basketball to win. You don't play just to be involved in the game. You play to win so I understand. Now's a winner. I would I would I would. I wouldn't teamed up guys but I would have put myself in a position to win. And that's what I understand about. Katie talking to Stephen Jackson and Stephen and give us your sense of what the next year he played for eight. Different teams like the Ryan Fitzpatrick of the age to get somebody who had a revenge game going on you. The why why not. The Knicks is the only didn't play for you know I don't know why that didn't happen. I think every player that's ever played in bay would have loved to play in the garden play for the Knicks. I think got some good Games. They're on opposing teams. But you know it starts with Dolan. I mean it's just simple as that I liked the coach. Physio I like they building with Rj. Bear I got a kid that they can really build on. They didn't get the free agent. They thought they were going to get this year. But all that comes down the Dolan you gotta think about and this is the inside sided that nobody knows about NBA players. And how guys around legal looking at Dolan people know but the young guys respect Charles Oakley. That situation looked real bad on a nick side of things. Because I guarantee you they might not say it but when guys like Katie Curry saw how they handle Oakland. Oh when there's nobody support his organization. Nobody wants to go now. RJ's different because he's he's trying to get into the league so he really doesn't have a say so but the way Dolan handle stuff and the way. He's he's been outspoken on some things. I think that's the main reason why the organization is where it is. It's interesting you bring up the hulk we I 'cause we sat here and we discussed the same for weeks and weeks and weeks. Yeah I don't know how would you handle a situation like that if a guy is belligerent and screaming and yelling and yelling at a point where becomes essentially embarrassing. Everybody around here How how do you handle that what you have done? Well I think for the first part has done so much in that arena. I don't look at how the better way by escorting him out. You don't you don't you. Don't understand security kind of escort him out and embarrass him in that way when you know if you know Oakley you know he's GonNa Respond. I think I think it could have been better with somebody that owed respects somebody as relationship with an organization to tell them to like. Oh you can't sit here are why even let him in the Knicks game. Even take it. Yeah I don't want him in the bill but you gave him ticket. Oh that was. That was the first thing I don't think they ever expected him to turn out to do what he did right. Nobody expected that. And all of a sudden everybody's in a bad situation and then I know James Dongo's on. Espn the day later and then accuses. Hopefully everything that it just made the whole thing worse. I understand that but let's move forward so we hires you know he. He Brings Scott Perry brings in there trying to rebuild and yet it seems like Kyrie serving never ever gave them a second thought. Even come in here yet. They you know. It's a lot to overcome going into the Knicks uniform and I don't think we was is ready for the responsibility going to Brooklyn. It's like you're starting over. You're starting fresh. You really don't have any baggage. You don't have a a a a cloud over your organization. You know you come in here to starting fresh the Knicks. It was a lot to deal with you. You GotTa get out a big hole. You got to be a lot of questions questions that you want to get axed plan for the nets you know you not get an extra about your own plan for the Nets uh-huh every day you know what I mean not asked about your record and how long you've been losing you know so I think it's a it was a it was a more refreshing situation in in Brooklyn but the Knicks have the some kind of way Changed the outlook. In the face of the organization they do a great job with fish daily. Rg back everybody loves RJ. Brad I I love that kid but it has to be something else maybe in the community I mean maybe maybe away from the gang. I have to tell you though you're not from around here. They do it. Unbelievable job with Gordon Dream Foundation. I'm everybody I mean. It is a great one of the best outreach programs in any team in any league has and I can. I can definitely attest that So let me ask you about this whole is for you bring up like the NBA the Knicks. And all this other stuff and you know forget the next two years How about this whole NBA and the China situation situation? Yeah with what what with what went on and you understand what Lebron was trying to say. Well at the end of the day me knowing Lebron and knowing how how many times since he's been in the League to now how many times his words has been twisted. It's been million times. I'm used to that Obviously me been around. The League been educated in the media. Space I know how to ask the question is when I have no education on the situation I love everybody. Yeah and and that's why you can't you can't twist I love everybody. You know Even though Lebron was done on the spot and he might might not have responded the way he should have really love. Everybody everybody I do. I do love Communist leaders. That's what he said he loves communist and the reason why and I say that because I don't know any I don't I don't deal with any of them every day so I don't know about everybody to now until I meet one. That pisses me it. I love everybody watching this. Lebron response cringing. Like No. No no no no no no. I was surprised with all the media that he's done in his life that he painted himself in a corner with that. And I you know I didn't even know what was going on. You know I really don't know what's going with. None of us are there. Yeah you know what I mean. We were all on the outside looking in so it's going towards the two ways we Lebron. You can't tell a man not to speak on the side of the way. He benefits for his family. WHO's GonNa understand him the money and take care of his family when all his endorsements are gone then if he does say that? Didn't you guys say well. Lebron you speak everything now all of a sudden you care about your brand. What do you care care about people? You know what I mean. So is nothing he could. Assail wins right. So that's why I say well no question like that. All you say you love everybody. And they can't twist the problem also is that he took on Daryl Maury exactly Daryl Morey made this tweet I think we all agree with the tweet a good guy. We agreed with the right guy. Yes very bright. Lebron comes out and says he needs to educate himself on some things right. That's where really gets into the weeds and it really gets intense. so that's everybody loss from that does boom everybody. I know they did. And you know it's real as a shame too because this year the NBA is going to be probably more balanced than ever before four teams that have a chance to win a championship. WHO's the best? WHO's the best team out? West right now Lakers they. I I said this before the season I said this before one game. Nobody if the Bron- the ways plan now I said this after the first game when he didn't take the challenge against the Clippers in game one came out to that game. It took the challenge. I'm Lebron let's go to Kawai. Made sure he made it. He made a point game. One Lebron Kinda backed down so after that game I came out. You know. I'm a big a fan. But I came out and told him and said that he doesn't have Kobe Bryant in him ever since. I said that he's Ariza. Triple double and I'm glad I said Yeah Combat. I said it because I'm one of those people that believe the Brooklyn average forty ten and ten. If he really wanted to write my attitude and coby attitude he could destroy he makes the right play. Play all the time but I just wish you would put his mind just dominate our game and I think he can average numbers. You bring up Kobe. I loved Koby. I love watching the guy the mindset the work ethic take all of that you I ran into an ex. NBA Guile tell you off the air. Who was who had a lot to say about Kobe? Being a person who he could not get along with he could not see him Mazza friend. He didn't understand his mentality. I mean talk to me about the Kobe that that you know I mean it. Did he do a bad job of sort of balancing the crazy competitive killer that he was and and and being good or bad teammate. While I knew from high school we played the McDonald's all American game together and you can see that he was different. Like it wasn't the the fact that I was patting him on the bag. More pat myself on the back but you can tell he was special Dan I play winning. But just the way he approached the game the relentlessness the the will to win the way he works. The way approaches the game. You want a guy like that on the on your team. Now if you're trying to be his friend instead of his teammate. Remade yeah go south because Kobe is like curry. I'm not trying to really be your friend. Yeah I'm coming here to play basketball and be the greatest. I can't at my job and but Koby will be is is a great guy man I I guess I can see him rubbing some people the wrong way because they don't have the same love for the game that he has and you can see why him guys like Ron says metabank member. They love each other because those guys went and play roles and Kobe needed a guy like that. What about Playing against him. What was it like? That's the night I made. Sure I got sleep. Yeah 'cause I really you understand it. Because you've seen it right he's relentless meant like there's nothing he can do to win and he's GonNa Shoot Cove is not going to make the right play he's GonNa make the right shot. Yeah you know. And he's one guy that usually have to key in on him. You can't really worry about by anything else he's got. He's coming off game all night. He fences well. Deep is well. Yeah deep as well I gotta ask you something because I'd have watched your show. There's one thing you said on here that I really really wanted to ask you about because from my perspective and you know better than me because you're on the inside but from my perspective. I'm like this can't be true. Carmelo Anthony Yes as we're talking to Stephen Jackson on the Fan Carmelo Anthony. You believe that there has been a conspiracy against Carmelo Anthony to keep him out of basketball now. Basically what you said yes in so many words that GM's is now once you get to a certain level or taxi. Get this guy away. They explain that a little bit further on on what you mean by that and when I get to the point where the NBA and this is the truth of the people hate the truth. True sounds like hate to people hate the truth it comes point. NBA Whereas the point. Where would you not? Don't become accompaniment. companyman well you mean when you speak in your mind when you control them control your career Camilla's one of those guys that never been a company. He's never been he's always spoken out on certain certain things that the NBA didn't like him to speak on. They won't say that because they give you the freedom to speak. They won't come out and say well he shouldn't have said that because the you're gonNA give us the freedom to speak but he does a lot of things that says a lot the things that they didn't like now. Alan Iverson went through the same thing. I went through the same thing. They put you in a situation on a team. Well before you get their y'all everybody said before mellow went to Houston. What everybody said Ain't GonNa work is not gonNA work but he was with Tony they put you in a situation where they no you not GonNa succeed and make it look like you can't play give your garbage man though you went in town where the team is looking bad and then once you get to that point when you look like you can't play this as ticks fix the sun around the league? We don't want to leave them. What nobody signs it you can't tell me out of the four hundred some jobs in the NBA Mellow embedded in three hundred people in the NBA? And what do you want him. They do though I mean like he's not. He's not the leader that used to be anymore. He's the player that he once was. Is You have guys in the League now. Boom you can look from seven to the to the fifteen man roster roster but he doesn't want to be one of those guys he no he. That's that's false. Because he's Stephen they brought him on. ESPN and he basically said no one has ever told me to flare role. No one has ever come to me and say this is my role. Give me a team that would that would work for him. And for Lebron here sources close Portland would work Portland with work from important work. Perfect for him. They don't have a small forward that can score I think shots a game. How much how much time would he get an in a game? I think realistically yeah. Twenty and twenty five minutes is great him. Yeah and then if he's rolling put him in an award because he's still can finish. It has nothing to do with the fact that he hasn't accepted that. He is not a top tier superstar any longer. And that's the reason why he's grinding against some of these other teams. It's because you think that he's spoken his mind and general manager and head coach. We don't newsmax understood this problem. So why does he fight against that then as he is too much pride. That's why why do that now. Because he still wants to play I guess why is his game not enough. I tell you when when he was here it was it was not the right time for him. You can say whatever you want. But he was you know he basically was ice. Oh ball all the time and the ball stopped it got to him and it stopped and he didn't play great defense that you know it is. It was obvious. He was getting paid a lot of money. And I'm not blaming everything on him because here at the Nixon started player but also they hired right Phil Jackson. They tried the triangle. Derek Fisher. I mean it was a mess. I understand that but I the fact that he went to Houston and couldn't make it with harden and Dantonio only and Dantonio wanted them. Does it doesn't make any sense to me. It's hard. It's a hard thing to put your today players like Dan. Tony Really. He's a great office of what has one. Yeah we didn't always opportunity. What does he want? But he's made guys the get to that next level like James Harden pardon the way that he didn't make it as hard but if you look at it when he got there I didn't make James Harden but James Harden scored more. He's been you had done that on anything If if you decide okay one of those guys would have left. And they would've kept James but they couldn't because of the moneywise James is going to be the same player anyway Dental is a great office and coach but officers not win championships. Always or James Chris. Paul get hurt in the playoffs. This game so why why because you sit in isolation eyesore went all year China score one one and that's not that's not easy to do for eighty two games. Yeah your body wears down. Do you know that Bill Walton has high regard for Mike Dantonio Dantonio is genius. Bill Walton said on TV. On Mother's Day Stephen Jackson say what a hard Bush that by horrible human being. What's really John Thompson? restyled tend to make them apologize to my mom on national TV. He did say that. So I have no respect go Hi I've never met him. I don't normally nothing. But he said that about me on national something to do with Lucas son or training or a day. My son was terrible. Hoping I'm getting my son to job just off my best. Hopefully I think it's. It's all personal man we're talking to the NBA crazy until you guys were not friends. Everybody's not GEICO. Trust me. I keep it under wraps for the most part like I feel like you don't win. There's issues it's issues with the players and management but you know amongst the players for the for the most part that he's been on a court. I've never been in a fight. Actually the player in the NBA game. You know size go ahead. Ron In the stands. I've never been fighting my whole career. The mouth of the palace could totally forgot about that. We've my goodness Tim Dom we've had two people as two weeks in studio part of that whole thing so you don game really. Yeah yes. I'm not a fan. So what is your opinion of course fixing games. NFL is right there. That's not the hot take. So what are you. What are you remember? I'm sure you probably sick of talking about what are your. What are your memories of that? The whole malice says it happened so fast I remember being looked at. You know. That's the the the metastatic for making all Star Games. Look in my career. I had a couple of years. Why average twenty plus points? I should have been all star that overshadow all my good played just by being a lawyer teammate. I DIDN'T GO UNDERSTANDS I. I I never had a fight with Fanta anything. But I'm going to be there for my teammate. He may regardless. I'm in a bar with you guys. If I'm in the club I'm in open-field one of my friends are teams. Get to it. I'm riding with him and I would do it again. I've started regret losing all the money I I I missed but I don't regret Helping my team. That's how I feel about my guys around here. They always got my back especially our producer. He goes into Ninja if Asher street. How about the fight between Joel? EMBIID and Karl Anthony towns. It seems like there's something more there I feel like. Nobody respects Karl Anthony. Towns with it feels like it was good to see for me. It was refreshing. Obviously they need some fighting lessons but It was refreshing to see guys care about the game then West to to go to blows gamble of a game now. Those who guys. I don't think it's the first time they got into obviously might be more to it. But it's good to see the two of the top guys in the league going at it like that. I Ah Joel embiid. He's like maybe like teetering on the edge of being maybe too much like the whole like you know what he said after the game was first of all of not a bitch says is that and then he's fired people I think it's great lions and all that bad I mean I love it man I love I just able to back it up any has. He's a great player. Now you talk about you being a great teammate in the loyalty there but another thing that I've learned that I love. Is that if you cross you or any of your teammates. That person's dead to you for the rest of time like that's that's the end of it. You don't seem to be an apology guy. I'm not a tough guy. I'm just a man that down down on my morals right. You know I don't I don't I don't do nothing shady. I don't wake up in the morning. Can How can plot on somebody to do something to demean somebody so I stand on my morals and if if I could send you my brother if somebody disrespects you or does something to upset you it. I'll never get over. Yeah because once the snake always sneak. I've been dealing with these type of people my whole life and welcome from wants a snake always a snake and there's no way that all the women in the world that I can play basketball as soon as I leave you I'm GonNa try to date so ex white. I don't understand that I will never understand it. And and just keep those type of people away from me. Now Matt Barnes Himself Forgave Derek Fisher. And what's so great about him. Peel haven't seen this clip. What so great about all the smoke that you just have to watch on showtime Super Basketball Youtube Channel? Is You find out in that moment during this podcast. It's filming live that he forgave him. Yes that's my first time hearing that. Yeah and you're like what. What did he had to explain it to me right with with his sons mom fishing and getting married or something like that? He did it for his kids. His kids do like their expression they are around him so I understood it but then I'm not around so you also mentioned Tony Parker. Forgive me I don't know the Tony. Why does everybody forget about the Tony Parker situation? Because he played for the Spurs nobody cares. Nobody cares handed with With the with bury it was a story about him dating. Barry's wife San Antonio here about that. Now see I mean we. We got so much cram. I heard that that was so bad. And then what about the Spurs. They good they good. Players trusted awesome very. Wasn't there too long after that. Of course Here's out of their homes buried and choke him out. What is good stuff to me the NBA does a better than any other league? When it comes to like off-season stuff like this Ashwin? The twin shop in between you guys the else and all this social media aspect of everything. It's just it's unbelievable how you guys stay relevant. Every single day you was was good about it to number even with you We can control our own narrative. Now I wish I had that when I was a player when when abroad happened I wish I could have had an outlet I can tell. Why did I did while I went and helped my teammate? And what actually happened instead of everything. Everybody assuming what happened you know but now we can control our own Adam. People can't say Stephen Jackson is doing. Yeah no I'm on. I'm sitting on the radio with boomer so you know we control our own Adam banesto different than NGO back to talk right now quickly quickly though you know we have A. We had a player here locally Jamal Adams safety for the jets and there was this whole big to do about whether or not he was going to be traded and all this other stuff and he immediately goes to social media and the put his point of view out like this is what I thought happened. This is how it went down and all this other stuff because we in the media we have our own ideas and our own we speculate all the time about what we think is happening all right. So you're you're saying that you think that social media as a good thing then no it's how you come to social media the Urban GAFA DALLAS. Yeah how he addressed the weed stuff and how. That was the wrong way to do it mhm you were still in the NBA don't NFL. Don't mess up your money by worrying about smoking. You know what I'm saying. It was a way to handle it by GIG. Also that's not the way now the other guy. Okay I'm getting looked at as a bad light being cast to the team. Let everybody know exactly what happened so I can clear my name. That's that's totally different than what other guy some some some guys. It's about how you do it and the message you send you know because that's what social meat is supposed to be. It's supposed to be a way for entertainment and the way for you to clear things up that's been there's been twisted. And if player can come out and use social media to to clear the light and to his fans can understand. He's not being a jerk or account to the team and that's the right way to do it. Oh but don't just come out and say to try to explain your case like David Irving there to try to make we legal neuroscience especially when you're getting paid by now you don't do did you get any fights with people come after you on there and some of these No avatar guys saying bad things that you like. That's the thing you don't want you can have zero post. Oh so you can have zero friends if you say something to me. I'm going to say something back. I have time have a great life. I sit at home a lot. I'm on my phone all day. I'm on Social Auden. And you look at my post every comment almost real because I'm a big social media guy. Yeah I enjoy it but I don't I don't take it personal. You're not playing to the people say to me. I laugh at it because he's funny. Sometimes right right but it takes mature guy to deal with at the end of the day. What they eat? Don't make me go to the bathroom. I'm fine I can laugh at it and keep it moving you. You are good at this media stuff you're good at Social Amigos de originalist. Highly highly. Recommend that everybody goes and checks out all the smoke Matt Barnes and Steven Steven checking out showtimes. Sometimes basketball themed radio afternoon radio in New York. There's an opening. Ah We're we're serious Stephen Jackson with us on the fan. It's the morning show with boomer. esiason Gregg Giannotti boomer and Geo I'd say Stephen Jackson got a future man. I don't know I should ask them some more questions about other sports sports to see if he could do this full-time or whatever but he is good new faces and New People involved in and that's the way it should be you know. It's time for the next generation Stephen Jackson that guy. I tell you gift of Gab but like Jerry you know you've been around this longer than me you aw when guys have it they had right. Can you immediately know. And the fact that he is. He's quick witted. He's got the relationships in the business. I mean he's just he's able to tell a story. I mean all the second I saw him with his Matt. Barnes thing I was like this guy's got it right but then I'm thinking when he comes in here might be different because it's the two of them when they have they shared the same experiences in the NBA. Maybe not going to be as comfortable in this type of interview setting but now yeah might have been better while you know what you could you you could tell that he has the ability to just like go after people without regard comfortably doing it. Man I tell you you know doc Bill Walton or I think we touched nerve there. Yeah Yeah Yeah Bill Son where I thought we touch nerve there. Oh sure yeah yeah. Of course yeah and easy. Honest the evidence Stephen Jackson the afternoons on take credit I want I wanna cut that contracts. Even if you still listening he said goes go. See when you guys talk about everything right and I'm like yes. Yeah Yeah so you'll have to. You know. figure it out kind of like if you if you had to move here and you got involved in New York. Sports kind of bargain Barg came from Detroit. Came here to play for the jets and got into the whole situation. Right pictured Stephen Even Jackson during his fake his way through jets come man size. This is awful of the that was that was very entertaining and we hope to have them on again in the near future anytime. He's in New York to stop by and develop a relationship there with Stephen Jackson. Oy or he'll host and we'll fight with them. Yeah right right one of those things right exactly. I think it was even better than Matt. Barnes wasn't here because then you could just focus on Stephen really not really show. Show is Barnes personable on the show too. Yeah you know what the reason why it works he is is is Matt. Barnes is a little more reserved you know. Oh and then when they talk about these topics Matt Barnes like well. We should talk about this. And then Stephen Jackson. Oh Yeah Dan bryk goes off killing somebody. Yeah but we don't need to exploit expires. Just get some cheaper reserve guy throwing there with the official company statement at are you the spokesperson versus. Hey Jerry Jerry. You got something for us to be on auto group schedule an appointment today to rake Katina Service Center. First Class Service at affordable. Prices are just on the basketball since that's where you're at Nixon Detroit tonight here's RJ Barrett Obviously they've got off to a good start. Have the knicks but his attitude is really tremendous season for me. It's been amazing. Feel so blessed every day today in practice Aso's on the quarterback while I'm really really here guy. He's likable anybody that you've ever had lucky you know maybe Zion should be a great pro to and he's a great personality but it sounds like this kid is really get his act together. Stephen Jackson goes everybody loves RJ Barrett. That's what he said. See why yeah. I mean that. That's a good thing because there's an NBA circles. I mean that's how you get that respect back as an organization is to have a guy like that. You know the other thing Stephen Jackson said you know kind of describing Kobe Bryant like he's in the SAS and I'm not not your friend. I'm your teammate. Yeah I actually Kinda love that. Because that's what it takes to become a world champion. I've always been a coma. You guys you guys get mad at me. When I'm screaming at you and we're losing a softball game I get a little taste of it? Oh but different you know. What do you mean well? How should charity softball finals? No it's got got a little taste of it talking expectations and put a pressure man. Let's not do this today. What do you mean it's charities? It's not it's not. Hey would you walk into Al's show office and on the wall has our schedule. WWW w. w. kind of looks like down but in fairness in fairness yes. Sometimes you bend the rules and is that really the spirit the game who's bending the rules Jerry. Anything else let me let me. Just 'cause no no no no no we're far enough removed from it now. out to where it doesn't matter cannot no no talking about the rule bending that we do once in a while Eddie Sean. I'm all for it. I'll I'm not sure which rule bending I I don't know what you're talking about. He does how does it well. That's right he's plan so now. He thinks he knows on the inbound trying to protect the brand right. That's what I'm trying to do. Mr Is is. Is it fair to say that. Sometimes when things are going well we might just fudge the Dow. We'll never happened on book. No no I'm not. I'll never sitting master loan again. Give me the book. The he's not. He sucks time out that that happened. Once wasn't it happened once it happened once in one game because Eddie came to me me into his back tightened up. That's the only time it's ever happened to say something. They're going to be a mute well L. I've I've seen it happened one time as well just one time. I don't know if that was the back tightening up situation or we were just losing in the top of the order. Had to come up again. I don't know if it was one one of those things but I did see one time. If a guy comes to me and says he's hurt like you. Were trying to keep your injuries from me for some stupid some stupid reason because you the hurt I sure did I say I I was told today was heard that is one hundred about being heard. You know you're hurting the that's why you have to tell the manager. Also the same guy when I dragged my leg over to first base and you gave me a high five. He said you're putting it out there. That's the way to go out so I don't WanNa hear it because avenues. I was just trying to pump you up making yourself feel good about yourself that that day was not feeling good anyway. That's that's the assassin mentality on the field. Well he also mentioned speaking of Sassoon's on the field around the court. Lebron James the Lakers are six and won. They beat the Bulls last night. One Eighteen one twelve twelve. The credit of Lebron's uptick in play. Challenged them right. Is that what he says. Hey ever since I said what I said. He's doing what he's doing. Yeah he goes. I'm glad I said that. That sounds though that like people listen. Stephen Jackson says because of him Kevin Durant Colt him after he called him out for having the burner accounts or whatever so they're listening. NBA Players are listening. Man This even Jackson. That's good Here's Lebron we're getting stops. Only give up while they give a lot of points but no the fourth quarter was tremendous last night. We we are defensive team and we WANNA BE WANNA be the best defensive team in the League and We can hang our hats on that no matter. We're playing well offensively we we. We know that we can get isn't shot. He's played really well in the fourth quarter. Four that win also last night of note. The hawks beat the Spurs one. Eight one hundred trae young twenty eight twenty nine in the second half a football story jetson giants on Sunday. The jets placing tremaine Johnson on. I R with ankle injuries. The giants coming off their loss to the cowboys of course Antoine Buffet with with Joe Evan. On the fan why is the defense so inconsistent this season up the same thing you know I'm so down That's been a big problem for them. Jerry Jones on the fan in Dallas yesterday he makes his calling to Sean and RJ while he was still in New York. He references a hotel here. I never heard of it. You tell me Boom WanNa missing and as a matter of fact. I'm in this hotel. They've given me this room to make this call from so I'd be on this show. Would you guys. But it's one of the most famous places in New York's call came Colebrook the King Cobra. You know that I don't know that one that's like a place place eyes wide shut was filmed where they go and have the like orgy with the masks. And Jerry just blew the cover off the whole thing. Nobody knows about it like a small group of billionaires in the Saint Regis hotel okay. So that's where he we started. Like Bobby said are in the back here said that Jerry Jones is Dallas. Cowboy plane is up in that airport up there by where bobby lives which why would could he go there. Why not teeter probably just crowd just won't be able to get out? Get Out of here whenever you.

Yes Ah Julie. Good morning thanks for joining us. Thank you guys for having me on big fans and I was just saying I live like five blocks down the streets of Nice little morning John Tier to who of course announced that I will be taking over from perfectly welcome to the club. We have to address this right off. The we'll move on so of course there's articles written about Mike Everywhere in the post and the news newsday about how he's going to be leaving but not released going on. You have any idea I and I don't know I'm not retiring. I'll be leaving but I won't be leaving will be here on my show next week with banks he's GonNa be on drinks with banks percent so we're GONNA get him. You know little intoxicated and they'll get you all the answers vehicle. That's how we get things out of Mike Francesa. That is going to be amazing. So it says here in the in the Daily News article with Bob Ruckman. It says there is no shortage of candidates candidates who will be in play to replace His Holiness. Mike Francesa a mega gray. WHO works here? John Jastremski works here. Evan Roberts who Joe Beningo works here Bart Scott who works here Marc Malusis who has worked here and his right down the hall right now doing a show Sal Licata who works here and then you you know one of these things does not belong billy Stewart banks. We'll just put that out there. I said it's like a smokescreen. Get everyone sort of focusing on me and then the real the real person is in that group probably just that. I don't think it's me you know the answer because I mean you and Mike You have conversation. I don't know the answer I did have an inkling thing that he would be. Maybe hanging up The boots at some point soon mike and I are best friends forever. So that is I know all of his secrets. I actually know him from this program. Not This particular program of course but when I worked at F. S. one extra updates into a show called in wondering who's jewelry store binks thinks lawn because Fox only hires blondes and of course he was right. Yeah and then. He invited me to come on the Rangers. boomer we're in the playoffs the great thing about Julia's you actually do hockey yes Toronto. It's very glad that we were born with skates on so. I do think that you know your your resume. Now is so impressive. You mentioned Fox sports one you mentioned your new TV stuff now. You're at Barstool for a little bit that that didn't work out. I won't even really get into that. The story I mean doing great now. So you know when you've you've had all these different places and now you've got you know this show like how do you. How do you go into a venture like this saying this has got to be the one? Now that I'm GonNa be doing for the next decade you know. I don't really think of it that way as you mentioned I've kind of had a cup of coffee basically early every single network Running out at this point I just think of like what do I want. And I've worked at all these different places. What's something that excites me that that really dials into to my passion and what I like is comedy sports and what about what you guys talk? It's it's loose it's like it's with your friends. And so with this show in particular alert I modeled it. They gave me you know Kudos to Fubo. TV Fubo sports network and the head of the network Pam Duckworth. The gave me everything kind of I wanted with. The direction is is that you know I wanted to do a monologue off the top kind of like Kimmel and Fallon but in a sports way then have a guest than we do a fun activity with guests but we keep it light. You know we we are we we blown through every stop sign so far in terms of swearing and drinking so this point do whatever we want to see what this is going to look like with Mike I Now there's two shows call it a night which is more of the sports comedy side and then drinks with banks is a forty six minute conversation with someone just very loose over whatever beverage. They want it doesn't have to be alcohol. Dan Patrick on. We just have water that we had Michael Smith on and we had six Hennessy's lemonade. So you know it's real a big spectrum transatlantic company you Dr- you drank six forty six minutes. I mean I'm Canadian I could. They'd have to host the show to be a little bit about you. Joy is and I think a lot of our listeners from Toronto. You're a hockey fan. But you're also hockey employer your point in a men's League Chelsea Piers now I am yes I play Friday nights come watch us the hell. Hounds got beaten twelve to two last Friday but we didn't have a goal goalie wasn't really skilled. But it's been great. I've been playing. Men's league played boys hockey when I since thirteen all the way till now in. La With with Jerry Bruckheimer League. It's basically anyone who can play hockey in. La Played Same League. And I've always just continued it because I mean especially as uh when I was a hockey report. I WANNA show that like I know what I'm talking about. Play the game. I can be out here and I do muck it up boomer so okay. I hope that your team faces the game. Let's go to hell guys in Wasp you guys Travel or no. We'll go anywhere. We're kind of like the little little giants like we'll play. Whoever wants to face this win but we win or lose we always booze very sounds right? That sounds about right. BOOMER boomers taxes team with like NHL. Guys no I don I got. It wasn't a total lie. You guys totally blown out of Washington. It's fake news of. I've ever we try to do that. I already ash on every if he joined our team so yes he said he was in California. That was not aww yes or no so. Let's still on the patrol in the bike lane. I know yeah. He's his follow on instagram tumble. Yeah so like boomer. We'll have CALC Lauterbach show up and then on the roster. His name is like Sal Butterworth and then he's out there. He's like knocking people over scoring the refs. Do they're not disqualify you for that time out. Ah by the way if I added Galaxy had his first gold of the year last night was gonNA score goals per cent. Timmy a break. You know all right so now you mentioned something like you WanNa make sure that you prove to people you know what you're talking about you you feel like that's something that you have. Did you have to think it's always something as a female that you carry that when you walk into a room at least when I first started my career about ten years ago it was the assumption that you don't know what you're talking about like just when people we'll see you say oh a woman talking sports you have to start from a negative and go up so that has changed. That's changed but that's also because I've worked all these different places I've covered all these different teams have built relationships. That then people believe that this is you know where you're supposed to be paid your dues. I've worked all over the world to get to this point but I want to show people because I can't play in the NFL. I can't I can't play on all these different sports that I can't play hockey and continue that and I'm GonNa beat. Beat your butt on the ice to Julie Stewart brings in studio with us on the fan and CBS sports network. Now something like the Fubo. TV and Fubo Sports. It's network and all the stuff that's that that's happening in digital media. It's like you know finding these things and making sure that the audience knows where to go and what they're paying what they're not paying I mean is is that part of your I guess repertoire now is to explain to people not only what your show is but like how are we getting. Do you find that like as a challenge a little bit or now I think the biggest thing is like our show is free. It's it's Fubo sports network DOT COM. It's like you just plug it in. And the show is on basically all the time because we're still building content nine on the network the soccer hooligans. They're also on there as well so shadow to them but we're Fubo. TV is a certain streaming service that you can pay for and get all your channels but were her channel on that network so then you can also get it for free. I had to explain this to my dad last night. Who still trying to figure out how to watch my shows? You can't see in Canada but Yeah I mean this is sort of the way the world we live right now. It's not always just the ESPN's ABC's the NBC's a CBS is. It's it's all these other places and they afford you more ability to try things out to have fun to to push the envelope now. You mentioned that the sports in in comedy are are things that you want want to focus on and and you are Canadian now. I Canadian humor to me. Is hilarious like some of the funniest people in the world that are from. Can't kids in the hall to miss. Is the radio. SETV Tom Green also Canadian. Also it's going to be on my show next Tuesday. Wow I mean that guy. We had them in here on expectedly the with his SAM's e yeah that was that was crazy. Yeah he's he just sat down and we weren't. We didn't think we were supposed to interview me just sat down. We're like okay. I guess we're interview. Is this a bit Tom. Green it really did But what is it about Canada. That makes that sense of humor. I've always wanted to. I know this. It's like you got to do something right. You're going to be inside for ten months of the year because it's so cold outside and you can only get drunk for a certain amount of time. You gotTa Find Something Fun to do. But you mentioned you know the the Martin shorts. The Mike Myers John. Candy's like there's there's just so many great comedians Eugene Levy and I assume that that's like oh you're from Canada. You must be funny. He's like no no no no but I like that you at least think that when I do walk INS room so we've been you know sports. There's enough people doing the XS and Os and if you can bring in something Let's light and fun and bring in a different audience to That's what we're trying to do doing some work at us and Y as well and obviously you. We know how Bad New York sports has been outside of the Yankees here and especially this time of year jets the giants man. You guys are just been real thing. Thank you guys like. I'm Canadian. Got It but yeah it's been tough. I mean I'm really excited actually to see jets and giants because it's just it is the toilet bowl all right. Who is it that suggested? Whoever loses house to Waller's? Yeah Yeah. Yeah the best idea. I've heard off would be amazing if Roger Goodell could step in and make that happen I mean the ratings were that game would go through the roof flex it to a Sunday night game and then Adam Gates is out of town. It's a win win for everybody. Now were you into the whole raptors actors wrong because of course obviously I was on S. N. Y.. Two wearing my jersey rest in peace. I'm on the raptors. But it was so much fun especially because Canadian sports never really get a whole lot of credit especially in the states like I watch every single show and it was always. Oh how are the box matchup against the warriors how the Celtics the sixers anyone no one ever talks about the raptors and they won the Damn Damn thing okay because I don't think a hockey team from Canada's ever GonNa Win The Stanley Cup. Hey none of them other than the one. That's your son in law used to play for dry yes not looking so hot either these days but Yeah but it was great. It was an NGO. It was so exciting for the entire country. That's what made it unique. It wasn't a city it was literally coast to coast. Everyone was behind the raptors. And that's why it felt so odd when they won and then uncle dentists and just absolutely ruined the entire summer celebration I know so I mean is there an mosses there that because he delivered a championship that it's take forever in our hearts the whole year. He thought he was going to go to the clippers anyway. So it's kind of the Lakers was never going to happen. I never believed that that was going to happen. So going to clippers is the fact that he even said at the end. You know you got what you wanted. He said that to Kyle lowry or whatnot. In the Rachel Nichols enervate you got you. The championship was amazing. Really no say over over being traded their right I mean so they roll the dice. They tried to roll out the red carpet and even winning championships. Keep them offering for him to be on on his label and the amazing the helicopters yeah the NBA spectacle right now. It's just like unlike anything sports isn't it. I mean we've gotten used to it now but it is nuts. What's going on from the Chinese thing to the whole deal with the free agency guys? Quitting on their team forcing trades. I mean it is guys like uncle dentists. Ns what the soap opera. The head of the driven Lee star-driven League if if you create that brand you're able to do what you y you you you own them. You have drake sitting in the front row. High five players yelling at other players and everything else and think about his popularity worldwide. Yeah and then all of a sudden the NBA. It comes on top of that. And you're you're just it's just amazing how we have Steven Jackson here this morning. So he is. grated is just simply because it just never ends it just never even when the season is dead right but at least that gives us something to talk about right. I love that I love the personalities because then you can kind of poke fun at them or bring during the men. Are they say something stupid when they say something tweet something ridiculous about China and they're going on right now we've got Communism Jokes Act. Act snap of a finger so drake really that beloved there or is there a faction of fans of like all right enough. This especially because Canada has inferiority Areola Complex in sports and against the US having drake like one of the coolest rappers celebrities be on their team on our team. I'll say is is great and so oh well. Everyone was against him in the playoffs last year and thinking it was too much and he was like two into everything. That was our guy. The guy that we rallied around so I became more of a drake fan and I was listening to his music more and that definitely helped him. So yeah clearly. Okay all right baby. Do you know what Mike is going to be drinking on your show show with drinks with pink. I'm guessing diet coke what I planned for. I know we said alcohol. But I'm also a big proponent. There's no forcing booze on anybody. Okay okay maybe it'll be a glass of Mark Chernoff tears maybe maybe a little crowding diet coke slip something fun for no all right. Well let's throw me one on a show like yours Katie podcasts. And that's when the first retirement thing came out. Yeah that is straight so. Then you're saying we're GONNA get some breaking news out of. I'm sure probably so you know exactly what the date is now. A future date like this stupid thing have locked in November fourteenth ears November fifteen at Fried. APM so you have no life in your home and somehow on your computer out you news job not make fun Tuesdays and Thursday seven call tonight with Julie Stewart banks and then drinks would banks Fridays at eight eight on Fubo sports network. TV's Fubo Sports. Now are Julia. It's a pleasure having a here guys. Were having a walk and we will. There's there's a glass of Chernoff tears right there. So if you'd like to take with you we gotta do that on the ice. Let's get our teams. You're going to make sure we get this whole go without question are it's the morning show. Oh with boomer Esiason and Greg Nadi boomer and Geo think it's okay to say this but never yesterday's more one of the day the reason why taught at this moment a day's coming up in a little bit and it had to do with forty van wagon and his press calm and we were having some fun with Brody and the joke that he tried to play he tried to have at the beginning but then we blamed it on the great. Pr Man Harold now. Having Fun with it writing jokes looks and everything will herald had reached out to me. Okay and Harold. He loved it. He's not he's not now now. How old said he's a by the way I did not write the joke okay but that was very very funny so it could go? It could go either way stuff like that right when I see what I saw the tax it gave as it heralded. Oh I also know that you know brody is aware that we do have a little fun at his expense. I'm sure you're that atom gazes aware of it I'm sure that Mike McCain and he was obviously aware of it. So is Mike Tan About Muslim. I mean all these guys around here are aware I will say that brody. I think think those understand the entertainment side of sports better than maybe your average. GM gets it. He's like an old you know he's an old school guy he gets it. Yeah he's also disappeared after some of the criticism like lately so I mean when was the last time you know what the best thing he can do is select the players put put them in the coaches lap. Let the coach coach them going to get myself involved which he hasn't right and he will. We will not see him again most likely until the end of the year and do the end of the year. Your stuff right which is fine. which is our coach? That's what I would want. I wouldn't want my GM unless of course there's an issue that happens around a player like what happened. Did the jets and then all of a sudden Joe. Douglas has to be tried it out so he can take that on him to kind of insulate the coach. I wonder what you'll Douglas's thinking right. Now like wow I got five. Years left buckle and I got a lot of money coming my way. Yeah you know what in in a lock and chain a year and a half two years in the NFL. We've seen it time and again every single year in the forty niners are probably and the bills. I think even though the bills were you know. We're a good team last year but I think those are teams. Is it like you're starting to see. Come back to life again. We had two guests in here today. Al I me okay with that. Is Everything all right. I know you get a little bit nervous when these two guests on during the show but yeah I think you know Wednesday. Football teams really are horrendous. Right worked out. Wealth worked out good. It was good timing that will I was happy with you. Know and then now out Steven Jackson you know I'm GonNa follow him on twitter and instagram and everything else. He's now the next guy that came in here that I'm going to be somebody that could be a team. Our two guests. Oh Oh yeah that's right. I know Stephen Jackson's people are e mailing be it. The Guy was the guy I was starting to type an email on it. But he does know that he asked to come well. Maybe he doesn't maybe in the afternoon you can stay in. He can stay in Atlanta and do the show. I'm not sure maybe that's how it works. Did ask because this five days a week I said yesterday every day every day summers off depends on who you are. How long it's all right? Jerry what's boomers is brought to you by and we'll deserve sir brought to you by the Ray Catena auto group schedule an appointment today to Ray Katina's service center first class service at affordable prices. We have found the CCC Bat. The audience are to see to podcast from the uninterrupted with guest. Host host guest with co-host Ryan Ruko Ruko at this point Assist he's reading something they fan was wondering. Would you speak to call all about your experience. Pitching with them as a West Coast Guy. Jericho have spoken at length anytime about me. Pitching as a Yankee is a West Coast Guy Okay so then the follow up so the answer is yes this is yes. What the answer's yes you? We talked to them because we have already that I like Geico Geico and then you have this basically says it's all about the cash. Go get him see crazy. You know how this is like shaping out like the same free the off season that I had like. Yeah everybody here going crazy like he don't WanNa come. Don't come here. Yeah you offer them money going to come here. Oh is that speaking from experience. Here's one abandons Yankees. They actually pay less taxes here in California. Yeah via sliver shore amongst slipper about Brian Cashman. Do you bring up the fires. He's ego that dirty now. No no no no I mean I would S- looks here. Okay now I wonder if Garrett Cole is GonNa take exception now being called that mother bleeper by C.. Sympathy sounds like they're friends but you know it's like a term of endearment people ask me all all time what's it like working with an. MFA There that you work with all means my permit that we're all good do you. Yeah I just can't say it here could sit on the podcast but apparently oh how never has me on his podcast. That podcast is gone away longtime ago went away and you were here one time when me and him started ours we offered you to stay in. You ran well. I mean I need to be you know. We don't like involved in all my people and see if we can work something out since you're personnel. Ah Alcohol Yourself. L. is supposed to be your person now has been doing for the last two years as nobody's person boomer. It has his own people that I deal with. So I'll deal with like when even people ask me here for boomers something I said. Well I can reach out the boomers people go. I don't keep them or schedule. It's very busy. I'll have to ask freaking boomer. Thank you all so we go from Sobat the and those bleeps the Dean Spanos the the owner of the chargers about the story that they were interested in going to London. I know there's been a lot of crap going around in the last twenty four hours about this London thing and I just want to give you a Corpora me okay. We're not going to London. We're not going anyways. We're playing Los Angeles. He says that's right. We're staying in in La Bizarre home and this is planning to be for a long and your thoughts on the article when you saw it wild. Wow upset I would say language is in these days. Yeah it's free for all right. I think it's always been there. It's just always been accessible symbol as it is now cameras and phones were always running right. I mean right for a long time. It was reporters notebook and a pen. We didn't hear it everything. We did have a report lord on CBS. By Jason Lockenfora. And the more I think of it the more it actually makes sense and that was that if it brady ultimately ultimately it's GonNa be a free agent at the end of the season if he wants to spend a couple two more years and go and play for the chargers with Josh mcdaniels as his head coach in in La. Could you see that playing quarterback for the Patriots. Why I don't know he's going to be a free agent in other words? He has the right to move on if he wants. I mean is Anthony. Lynn really going to get fired every team the playoffs this year but the point. I'm saying that that wouldn't be y you get fired. He would have gotten fired because you have an opportunity bring Brady mcdaniels anal to La and sell tickets to the chargers because you have their season ticket base out. There is nothing because they don't have any fans right so so this is this is a it makes total PR sense and marketing set for Sunday. Got The hacker. Not that for. Why is he in Preston? That maybe maybe you you look. I don't know what's going on up there knowing I'm not looking I'm not I'm just echoing a report that Jason talked to a lot of people around this whole a situation that would make a lot of sense even actually be set at but maybe it was said in the meeting that maybe even cranky would put money up for something like that to happen. You know always wide like ten minutes ago that I read that vandals sportsbook spot about the knicks line. Okay and I just moved significant really when when I said the Knicks are only two point underdogs in their plus one fourteen on the money and then now it's gone to plus one thirty two and then another half a point what happened and well problem because I'm just I'm just saying you're an influence. I just influenced the line. I think people heard what the Knicks are. Actually there only two point dogs like you kidding me only plus one fourteen. I'm betting on the Pistons. That's what I think. That's what happened nine o'clock in the morning. You're right I I think I might have something to do. Even Jackson. I feel like Steven Jackson. And he said something. And Lebron changes game. Yup Stephen Jackson for Vandal. uh-huh maybe well here is the nick head coach. David Fidel and you brought up something yesterday. You said it looks like Fidel to which we all kind of Putin voted. Yes if David shaved I think you got something I write on it. I'm watching this press conference today and oddly. If I can look past the beard and mustache you might might have something. How about if we get Allah beard and Mustache and get the same kind of rim? Glasses could grow a beard mustache but we want to do it before for March employees. Right exactly anyway. I think he got something here. Here's first NBA coach to be fired. Is Hey I don't think officially he is now embattled he's embattled they've written it now embattled in when you when that gets the coach or the RJ Barrett doesn't play. Well he's in trouble. I think if Barrett plays well you seeing development from him. I think he's okay. I mean you can't be one in fifteen either but now go win. Some Games item saying all of them. Go on a couple of them. We'll sing here. He is at all star performance. Julius randle the team was horrendous on Sunday Sunday night there one in six says there Noor Accountable asset ownership. I don't know what happened was a true first stinker a first first stinker of the season that on MSG Lakers beat the Bulls won eighteen. Twelve you had the hawks over the spurs one. Eight one hundred Celtics and Hornets one as well. Double double header at the garden last night and really good when the top four teams in the country played. who was number four Duke over number three Kansas Sixty eight sixty six and then number one Michigan State lost number to Kentucky Sixty nine sixty two Seton Hall beat Wagner One oh five seventy one saint? John's opens against Mercer Tonight and Syracuse is home to Virginia. And Ed who will stop the New York islanders right now in the last ten games. That answer is nobody you dream about

Starting 9 Episode 147 - Yankees Sign Cole

"Welcome back Oh aw one. Forty seven are in San Diego for the winter meetings. Out here We were planning on recording on Wednesday Wednesday but our water broke a little early. The baseball gone. Yeah they could since the buzz in the building busiest. Yeah did they deliver. Yeah winter meetings clause deliver just a little early and the Yankees are the recipient point of a brand new shiny piece of coal for particularly the next nine years at a three hundred and twenty four million dollar clip. Like thing about it this way. The Yankees are going to be paying Garrett Cole. Thirty six million dollars until I'm pushing forty. I'M GONNA have to stop you there. We don't know what the deferral is. If there is a deferral the Yankees could potentially be writing checks to Garrett Kohl's grandchildren. Yeah you know she just really don't know I love that. There's an opt out after five years like he's going to cash in for for more than thirty six AV after his age. What would that be? That'd be as age thirty three to three thirty. Four cents is going at the thirty five. Yeah before going into thirty five you know. Never write it off. I mean just in Berlin it was gonNA pretty high when he was thirty. Six thirty seven thirty eight well. That's and that's been. That was what I was talking about. was you have to consider. I think whatever kind of link the coal was going to be entertaining when he talked about the. You have to think all right. The performance of Justin verlander right now and take it back for the last three years or so. Are you going to be okay with those types of performances performances from a Garrett Cole based on what you're going to be spending him checks you're going to be writing to him and then to his grandchildren's grandchildren. Yeah I mean so ah Fr- from what the the scuttle but has been. I mean this as we're recording this signing happen. What less than an hour ago yes? I'd say yeah half hour to forty yes around around there. Were already Kinda hearing that. The angels offer wasn't even close The Ninth Year was a separator operator for the Yankees. A lot of us were thinking seven years. Yup there was an eighth year. There's a nine fear this is all guarantee we're not talking options. We're not talking vesting. We're not talking talk and mutual. Not Talking player. We're not talking team. We are talking nine guaranteed years of Garrett Cole in the Bronx for an AV of thirty he six million dollars Do you do you think that I mean it's obviously too soon to tell. Do you think that there will come a time where this contract could be like. What the fuck were they thinking or will they look back on this deal like the the I C C deal bill when CC sign in the Bronx he had the opt out that I see Sobat the contract? It was big but you look back on that you're like fucking great signing by the Yankees. I think what you have to consider as what type of wear and tear are we talking about for Garrett Cole. Moving forward how he's going to be utilized. We know what the Yankee Bullpen looks like. And I think everybody can can speak for the the idea that a bullpen is going to be strongly considered for everybody moving forward in an effort a to preserve your starting staff. And when you look at what the Yankees potential starting staff looks like that being a Severino in Garrett Cole at least combination Asian for a while you're thinking yeah we're GonNa be. We're going to be just fine. We're GONNA BE O K so for Garrett Coal it's the one big pop and I don't mean any one specific injury. I mean the like an that goes for any pitcher. You pray we to the gods that that doesn't happen anytime that kind of check. It's written because anytime that look I always go to Guy Shohei Otani who who is and I was just talking to a writer in passing. You saw me I. We pulled off. I talked for maybe five minutes or so in depth but the conversation it was about the Anaheim angels and it was a about my thought. which is this now puts the Anaheim angels in position? In my opinion opinion to give serious thought to one of the one of the third baseman that are out there in Oregon in Donaldson and then maybe one of those was arms in a review. Bumgarner I don't know if they can shake it out. I'm sure there's I'm sure there's ways to make that work but with their movement of Zach Coz art art now. You have to consider that as a play to do that almost knowing that they were going to miss out on coal like it almost if you date if and this is this is what happened. Folks is jared and I and instagram got in the elevator and and we heard from people wearing people wearing red People wearing gold Halos at that. It just didn't it wasn't close that it doesn't feel like it was close and so you have to think that the timing of us of the free world being notified that the move was being made if we look back how much time was in between that move and the deal being announced maybe six hours so do do you think that that move is made and they already knew that they weren't in on it and so they're like all right. This is planned or they make that move knowing that this is the shot or this this is obviously really helping their shot. Yeah to throw that final final offer out there. I mean if you're the angels right and you've you've backed up the brink's shock for Mike Trout foreign at thirty million dollars lawyers. You're not paying Mike Trout. Four hundred thirty million dollars to just be the face. The franchise become some sort of team mascot. You have have to during his prime years which we keep talking about. Oh my show did this. And he's only this year is all my trump did that and he's only this year's well guess what Mike. Trout is now in the thick some of his prime years. You're only gonNA get a handful of Prime Mike Trout years left as we keep talking about. How young how? Great Mike Trout is well now. He sort of getting into the age seasons where we're talking about a typical prime twenty seven to thirty two eight seasons. Whatever the prime we're talking talent evaluator saying that? The prime is actually before that you know. We're talking about age twenty three through twenty eight seasons or whatever so if the angels are in on Garrett Cole and they don't end up signing Garrett Cole well you can look at one or two ways. They're going to be smart about it and say all right. Well we had all this money set aside to sign Garrett Cole. We didn't get him so but we gotta spend it somewhere we gotta go for. That's not being smart with your money or do they say wall. Now's the time I mean we have have this money set aside. We have to go inside. Somebody like we have to do it or did they say we gotta be smart about it and say you know it's just because we didn't get cold as me. We have to get somebody. But I don't like the thought that this shift of aggressiveness occurs because everybody's main target your main target is now gone. was he the the only piece that was going to get. And I asked this question before now I obviously will pose it to the ground through. What other teams out there are are just a Garrett Cole a way from the odds being heavily in your favor to win the world series over the course of a hundred sixty sixty two game season? How many teams out there that were just a Garrett Cole away if you're not one of those teams or the only team that very well could be the Yankees now? You have to give serious consideration to strengthening yourself in in multiple areas and I think again that third baseman combination between one of between a Donaldson and a review of Bumgarner. And aeronautics tight like I mean I feel you like you've got to make that same push if a Garrett Cole three hundred million dollar neighbourhood offer was something that was that was in your brain the also so I was thinking about this earlier in baseball the reports and the projections. They move really fast. So we're kind of already. You know three twenty six is almost like more thing. I thought I thought he'd get three fifty wall before the Winter Meetings Garrett Cole all has Stephen Strasburg to thank because Stephen Strasburg was both have Scott thing that that as well but Stephen Strasburg was projected it to get about seven years between one hundred seventy and one hundred eighty. He got seven years two hundred and forty five. That was the number that was floating around for Garrett Cole whole now a few days later Garrett Cole Gets Nine Years Three hundred and twenty six million dollars so the way that this is sort of progressed. I think that this was a special free agency class. I don't know when we're going to see something like this this again later. When we're going to see a pitcher rival that Garrett Cole figure You know I'm sure there's going to be a lot of talk with you. Know Sports fans outside of the Baseball Bob. This is ridiculous. How soon before we see a five hundred million dollar contract I wouldn't be so sure about what pitcher could even come close to like what Garrett Cole is coming it's GonNa be a little bit? Let's ask that question. Who is who is an arm right now that could morph into that? There's there's no way to tell because Jacob degrom. He got paid nowhere close to Gary Cole- got Chris sale got his extension nowhere. Close the A V is I. Guess if you WanNa like you know like a total dollars. I don't think we're GONNA see. Select his rival. Let's take a g Lido. Who just lets say he he he takes another step and really really starts to dial it in yeah and that stuff continues to play and he continues? He needs to progress. Yup I mean is there. I'm not I'm not saying Lucas. You Lido is going to be a five hundred million dollar plan. Not what I'm asking. But what does that arm. What does that profile look like? Who's even close to that? That's the question we're not trying to give guys five hundred million dollars doing you know but it's it's more of like which pitcher Walker Bueller like like Walker. Bill is a good candidate for that Yeah there's really not a guy that sticks out in my mind like a Louis Castio. CEO Tight deal of the EAVES. I mean it's because I mean let's call a spade here Garrett Cole just got three hundred twenty six million dollars because because of his last two seasons lay the years in Pittsburgh were good but they weren't like hey let's make this the fuck and wealthiest pitcher of all time mm-hmm no doubt about it. There's no one that second guessing this this is just. This is the guy he's number one. We're GONNA PAM AND WE'RE GONNA pay more than anyone's ever been paid before at that position and now let's ask this question. This is something that I've been thinking about is how much of an impact are the new wave statistics and the ability to project based on some of the core and raw data. That you're able to gather and you're able to like basically you have the ability to project because you you have a really good feel you can track in real time. What the ball is doing what the ball looks? Like coming out of an individual's hand so and there's even because Thursday's jared where you don't feel good but the ball is telling a different story regardless of how you feel so just the ability to understand stand an individual and the the the ability to help an individual along this now leads me to the next The next point the Yankees these I would have to say that a lot of that a lot of that is the money talking but the Yankees probably are a team that can give your coal the benefit of maybe maybe some of the technology and maybe some of the ability to do what he's done so well recently with freedom Not that he wouldn't have that wherever he's going. Because we're talking about that kind of money and and kind of technology that's out there. If he was in Anaheim. And that's available. I always start to think about shit like that now is are these indicators of of some of the organizations that are in on these superstars the ones that miss out are are the lack of advancement or the lack of progressive thinking. How much does that play into the decision making or is it really is we? I think a lot of us think just financially driven. Yeah it's I'm thinking think about this right. Think about this New York Yankees team in two thousand nineteen that one one hundred and three games. James I believe so one hundred and three ball games Believe they set a record for most players ever on a on an injured list in season. Luis Severino. It was one of the most home runs by a batboy most runs by fucking clubhouse staff. Yeah Jesus Luis. Severino was the ace of the New York Yankees at least in the first half in two thousand eighteen they pretty much went the entire twenty nineteen without their ace. Still one hundred three games now. They have the best pitcher on planet. Earth which will bump back Luis Severino to a number two or maybe he's a number three. I don't know because you also have James Paxton. Whose gotten some cy young votes in his time they are talking about maybe trading Jay Hap but that and then let's not forget Masahiro Tanaka who's Mr Consistency You know he's not Wyoming anybody's not blowing anybody away but this is a professional pitcher who's now slotted down to you know at at worst your number three number four four starter. That's insane the Yankees. They just took their number one weakness. Because well you kind of look at it this way to not to nitpick here but in the postseason Oh season. The pitching wasn't the Yankees problem. It was the offense and you can't you can't look at the Yankees office and be like guys. We gotta be better. That was one of the best offenses of all time from our standpoint. Now you kind of look at It's not just the Yankees getting an ace and slotting everyone else down one. It's the Yankees. Ke's taking an ace away from the Astros. who were the one team that stood in their way to get to the world series in years past and and also I think if you you look at the landscape and what it projects still probably a club that if you're going to write out a list as shorter as long as you might think it is astros still on that list still probably very near the top of that? Listen so to your point you are literally taking obstacles out of your way. Yup that's a big deal. It's pretty expensive obstacle to get out of your way though it is it is. That's Jimmy Hoffa money yet is Where do you see? Where do you see this five year? This five year option coming into play because it is very interesting too because I mean I guess we you can. You can add the money up are you. Are you genuinely like what. Who who think Scott Boras put that in there as a joke all look like role and opt out would make sense after two three five five five I mean there? There's no reason for that to be in there. You're not making that money after five two or three. Maybe because you because as we were talking about earlier you kind of reset the market. Hey there's some there's some week free agent starting pitching classes coming up. Maybe I want to hop back in there and see if I can't like we shop that Avium net detach that that's real. It's a it's an option in in your five. It's an opt out after the fifth season which I mean it's yeah that's just that's like a seat belt belt on an airplane. This thing crashes appreciate belting saving me. It's not I think that's been proven Garrett Cole goes to the Yankees to the surprise of pretty much. Nobody I think. They're the only anticipation or suspense or excitement. Around the Garrett Cole sweepstakes was you know I think John Hayman and fucking the Scott Boras puppet that he is talked about some mystery teams. We all know that Scott Boras has his fist lodged. So far John Hayman's ass and he just moves his mouth around like a low puppet. I don't know that they were only mystery. Teams they were going to ever make a legitimate Off Offer for Garrett. Our coal just wasn't going to happen I asked somebody in the no two three days ago. because the dodgers were my sleeper team on Gathercole what percentage do you give the chances of Garrett Cole signing with the dodgers they said one percent so this is really a two team race and then the angels as we heard were not even close so the Yankees. He's really just were kind of bidding against themselves. They knew that this was this was their price to win It was there bidding to lose and they did not lose. They knew so as you said there was one thing that There's really one team that you can take gathercole. Put Him on that team and they become the clear clear favorites to win the world series and were nine years Nine straight eight years. Because I I I don't even want to factor in that fifth option thing Nine straight years of Garrett Cole in the Bronx this is is this. Is this kind of like. Is this kind of like them. Going and getting the rocket which year the the? Yeah I yeah I mean he was coming off back to back Cy. Young Awards Yeah I would say but they only I think it's more impactful. I think it's more impactful. Does it impact impact it. Could I mean I there. Youth the Yankees youth probably has something to do like on the position players side. I would say has something to do with him. Being able to I think commit to that now I mean if there were it's it's almost like the perfect match. Sure like if you were to take any one of these teams that were in the postseason last year. And it's like if you could play matchup with with team a player a like. Which one could you match up to give them the greatest chance to become a powerhouse? Not We're not even just talking about twenty twenty nine year commitment here you're talking about not one not two now three now four. That's where that's where we're dealing with here. Because he's going to be there and a and the Yankees you know we think tank is oh like the evil empire and they just by their championships and they buy all these veterans in these high priced. Free Agents Brian. Cashman has has done a very nice job of making a young Yankee core. That is going to be able to give you sustained in success over a period of time and now maturing that core and then supplementing it with the superstar talent. Now that's that's Garrett Cole Giancarlo John Carlos Stanton whatever I mean. That's the Yankees can afford to to chalk that one up but typically captain Brian Cashman because everyone used to say back in the late nineties and early two thousand zero. He's got the easiest job in the world buys all the star players. Well I mean I go back to twenty sixteen in two thousand seventeen whatever it was when they when they blew that up and they were trading Chapman. Only to come back that was twenty sixteen And then they're trading Andrew Miller and doing all this they were they were rebuilding whilst still again ten minutes towards return. You know what I mean. Yeah for for the move. And then you've got you've got chapman tours on the same on the same team. Yes assured you and I don't WanNa call that a swindle because it's not necessarily that's just cubs go there ring right. I'm sure that they I'm sure it pains Theo Epstein to see he what glacier has become since the trade but I mean he's got a rings it still fits perfectly fine But yeah no I think You know the baseball fans out there. That had any sort of hope for their team to win a world series year. Now welcome welcome to my world where. You're not just rooting for your team. You're rooting against the Yankees. Because that is the team to beat. They've made themselves the team to beat and I don't think that anyone can deny them of that distinction nation. Now there is somebody on this podcast as excited about Garrett Cole Going to the New York used in wanting to go to the angels does but just because he's out of your division does not mean that he's out of your hair. No you're absolutely right if you want. If as want to get the world series guess what goes through the Bronx now this being a marathon. He's he's just right near the end of the finish line. It's just the last domino. That's gotTa Fall. Yeah that's how we kind of look at that That's that's how I want to look at that. Yeah so I'm I'm I'm very excited that it's no longer that it's still a dynamite squad. We gotTA deal with over there in Houston still a dynamite squad. It's a good squad. Just I mean that's another team team. I mean all the the rumors that have been going around about Houston. We're not talking about the trash cans and the the band AIDS in the fucking people in the bullpen. Given signals. They're talking about shedding payroll to their now rumors of Carlos Correa perhaps being moved Yeah I mean it's almost almost like like how it's almost like the Yankees are the bowl and everyone is just moving out of the Bulls Way and it's like hey you now. Now here's your here's just run. Just go you know. You're you're letting them score you're in the red zone you and it's just everyone is just getting out of the way here. Here's the end zone. I I I don't know if there's a team now that can stand in the way of the Yankees and pose a legitimate threat as that am I off The Astros will still pose a threat. But you've taken their greatest weapon and now giving it to the Yankee shirt I think just based on you know where guys are not right now and not knowing you know again. You never know what's going to happen with the arms that are out there and with the third baseman. So one of those guys ends up in a lineup. That you might think is just a bat or so away maybe a couple arms away and and they have the season there then then they become very real threats. I guess but when you look at a team that's geared up for one sixty two as it sets right now like yeah. It's it's tough not to look at the Yankees into them as much as that. That might hurt for me to say you do admit to. I mean I've been very Yankee positive on this podcast. Hey I'm I'm proud of you. I'm not saying you've turned over new leaf. I feel like by the way our guy. Aaron Boone I mean I I did a I did a radio hit last weekend on the fan and he came up to me and he said I heard you on the radio last week I was like Oh so you heard me saying Nice things about your team yeah. I was very appreciative of that and I was like. That's cool. Yeah I mean I'm I'm I don't just wear a t shirt. That says unbiased national baseball journalists. I'm about that life life. Yeah that's what we do. Yeah Yeah we'll How do you feel now I am? I am just in general like the the the initial shock. Yeah I'm surprised at nine years. I'm not surprised at nine years and what I mean is you just. It's crazy to project that link for a pitcher but I always always have to consider where we're at in the game where we're at technologically healthwise and like your coal doesn't have a blemish right Like that's a pretty clean slate And and so given the fact that he's he's probably GONNA be able to surround himself with just about any medical attention he would ever need they'll probably be at the forefront of any sort of medical advancements that are that are within the realm of legality for him and it will be like it's GonNa that'd be all hands on deck to go like that. TB twelve method like keep this horse this horse. Yeah and if that's the case man I'm excited because I always go back to the original horse. The Og Stallion Nolan Ryan like as far as like a dude in my time throwing one hundred fifty five years old like you can just go out there and blow cheese is that GEICO IS GONNA turn into you hope so we hope so. That's his bread and butter fastball. You have any concern at all about Garrett Cole. Now being out of the Astros bubble I mean they really did take a good pitcher and make him an elite eight best hands down best pitcher in the game type guy. Do you think that that's something where he takes that knowledge whatever it was his approach and he just brings out with them to New York. Is there or any sort of glimmer of doubt in your mind that there's a step backwards or just a regression or anything like that. That's why come into the winter. Meetings things is cool because if you pay attention you see the groups of people that are moving about and moving together. The Front Office members that are moving movie together and you you can see those groups expand like I've been. I've just noticed how many more people there there are. Here that are like club affiliates. That are moving around together having these lunches and dinners drinks and whatnot. Just Chop Chop Chop Rob ended up and that tells me that when successful players move they're bringing with them information about operational things behind hind the scenes type things that the other the other teams are now becoming privy to like. Hey we've got to listen to this like he's talking about he's coming from a place that's got a a staff of ex amount that are utilizing this kind of data and they're utilizing it this way like we have to start to give real consideration because it's seriously it's like being in the market for like for for for power car for a supercar when you live in in like a Florida retirement home. That's got a five mile an hour speed limit around the entire joint. Why are you in the market for that? You can't utilize is it. You can't take care of it. You should not even be like stop it handout. Let me slap your wrist like bat terrible idea so i. That's something I pay attention to. I don't think there's any concern about it. I think it's something that that honestly you're able to kind of track and because the information is out there man and he's going to take it with him now so slowly but surely that'll evolve so shirley that will come out but you bet your ass just to kind of put it into a physical visual thought. He's packing up the rap Soto and he's taking it with him that that means a lot more because as they gave him much more than a Web Soto. I'm just telling you that's it. That's that's the idea is they've given him a foundation that he can now take with him and build on. Yeah I mean again I go back to this played out exactly how thought it would. It was the angels. Joel's were rumored there's the West Coast preference whatever but at the end of the day. The Yankees knew where they were at they had identified. I Dennis Guy and they were going to make him an offer that he simply could not refuse. And that's exactly what happened. You Damn right and do they. Here's here's another question do they corner Garrett Cole at some point in time and get the low down on whether or not he knew what was going on and who else knew what was going on within that organization or within within that clubhouse as far far the potential scandal or is it going to be a baseball is just going to let this thing Shakeout GonNa going to take the answers when they come down and that's it don't ask me questions. I bet you if he gets tight enough with some of the guys in that clubhouse I mean some are probably GonNa WanNa know you know the first question is you. You didn't know you like I think it'd be like an off off the record thing be like you know what what was what was really going 'cause like now now like you know the guys that he's looking around the clubhouse hey you know you you you're GONNA win and lose games because of us you know Let me not like. We're the guys that we're going to war with you now. What was really going on like Tom was? I actually actually getting fucking cheated. You know in certain situations like let me know like I've ever like a suspicion of what was going on in a certain spot. What was happening there he might he might play down? I mean he you might not say I can't talk about it. He might say I don't really know. But and that's the thing is that going to be. Is that going to be something that just continues to happen if you ask those questions wants to people is that just going to be continued response. Like I'm GonNa play Koi so Ken Rosenthal just tweeted a coal exercises opt out from the Yankees. After five years years he would walk away from about one hundred forty five million so hundred forty five million what advert lander signed and for. This is who they will hold all the the Yankees will hold the press conference on Friday. So we'll we'll be long gone for that any other thoughts on Garrett Cole before we move on no I think I think we've pretty much covered it again. Now I think the trickle down effect all the dodgers have already shifted their focus to mad bump in the wake of Garrett Cole going to the Yankees Not you know Ryu Reunion Reunion Reunion. I bet you that will happen. But now they're the latest report. Is that Mad. Bum is is their top target. It'll be you know I feel like I feel like what just happened. 'cause it's December is December tenth. I'm just glad that now. We have like action during the winter meetings. And it's not you know we're not talking talking about top free agents in the fucking first week of spring training and guys don't still have homes. This is a good thing we should. We should applaud that much. Yeah this is a good thing. How last season is in the last few exactly how those have shaped up and played out for us to have the the movement and the action that we've had especially here at the winter meetings because it was great soon as we got the news? I I was looking at my phone. I got the alert lost my shit And we are are like. Oh my God that there was a very real buzz downstairs was we were up on the second floor. Nerves very real buzz downstairs. John Stares and we were like Yep Is Bad just happened. This is fucking awesome but here you go. Yeah so typically typically cap to the to to the front offices that have that have identified. Their guys made their pitches put together their game plans. And not not to cross pollinate here but it looks nothing like the Dallas Cowboys. Sure does coaching staff now. Just zero fucking game plan feel like quite a few clubs. Came down here to as de came down to a wills with China ready to deal so far no surprises. But while I was GonNa say is that it's December Tenth Garrett Cole off the Board Stephen Strasburg Grassberg off the board. No shocker as to where either of them ended up signing. But it kind of feels to me like Christmas morning we already opened like the big presence early. So it's like there's no like I mean Madam Scher. Rendell is going to be a big one Josh Donaldson. I'm excited to see where he signs but we opened and the big boxes now. It's like we got like some some kind of like medium sized boxes and some little boxes. It's still going to be a nice little offseason. It's going to be a nice little Christmas this morning. We still have a bunch of boxes that we've yet to open but we opened. We opened the big toys. Well you still have the ability for a pretty cool package though you do. I mean that a package. I'm just I really really want. I've just I'm trying to will that. I'm trying to put that out. Yeah could see two you guys going together. Yeah I just like like window and Madame Combo I I kind of want to see that. Yeah I would love to see that there'd be nice don't know what's going to happen could happen. I just feel like hey I feel like they gotta make that move there in a position feel like they gotta make that move gotTa make the Al West a hell of a lot more hell of a lot more competitive. Yeah sure but like we said earlier we are at the winter meetings out here here in Santiago and You know it's it's one of those things where you you embrace the moment you embrace the occasion you know how we embrace the the occasion earlier we jumped on some scooters. I love scooter cities. There's not every cities a scooter city. San Diego go is a big time. Scooter city also. Denver was a big scooter city. So Dallas Bryn myself regarding some scooters we went down to the local liquor store and we've got some truly heart cells. Sure did I mean it was It was a little bit of a hike but it was worth it because we went to the they they got like a hotel bar here and it's whatever you know you Kinda you do your thing maybe have a couple beers or whatever. What if I'm not in the mood for a beer? What if I want to truly well? Here's here's here's the deal and this is what I've always talked about We had to do a little bit of hoping around the walked for a little bit in an effort to find our scooters once we did and had a great ride but it was nice to have a cool crisp beverage especially after a little put session in a cool breezy environment so you mentioned the heavy loggers and liquors that are offered here at the winter. Meetings is there bountiful. No doubt but the freshness the one gram of shivered Est.. The hundred Calorie offering offering that truly brings to the table. Eric up their mind. A hubs was calling me but he hung up on. That's unfortunate that is unfortunate. You've probably asking asking for a box of truly. Is that without. You know what I'd love to do that cinema box of Julie's yeah it is birth. The thing I would say that A box of truly would probably be a great gift for him. If we're being honest he truly won the winter meetings. Yeah it's happened yeah. I don't handle victories to hubs at all. Oh this is looking to play the Games. Let's not crowded. The winter meetings is calling me again. Let's answer that. Let's answer that. Answer that hello hubs Happy Birthday Great Sal. Very good how are you doing one news. I said happy birthday already. I literally just I just said on this phone call but you're too busy talking over me. The report yeah. We actually have reported. You're still you're still alive the con- that's cool. Hi guys what's up. Hello everybody. Hey Yeah Yeah. We're trying to know we're trying to. We're trying to move away from coal to more like renewal renewable energy sources. Just I've heard about I've been hearing about coal for awhile. I feel great yes base. I broke the news like two weeks ago. I Dunno everyone's getting excited about now. I mean I was is tweeting Garrett Cole to the Yankees two weeks ago and no one credited me and then it happens like everyone starts throwing era fucking voice. I think ten years five in a row and And you probably George Burns. I mean you still have to play the Games Just the Yankees have a long reputation of going through in signing the best players in the offseason they win a world series every single time. Twenty nineteen they get James Paxson World Series Champs Two thousand eighteen they go go get Giancarlo. Stanton World Series Champs They go out and get Randy Johnson in two thousand five World Series Champs two thousand four they got a Rod World Series Champs. Well Oh he's fat so that's like What's that like a nine percent success rate? Five so MS Bully Valley up here in baseball. I feel bad like competition between me and you me a relevant Bourbon. All I'm saying. Is you better when you better win. No I'm there I'm there I'm there for all. Yeah because They need me on on the streams for people to watch them. So I'll be right there. That's it is lovely Khanaqin Yego thank you thank think about. I mean you still have to win the games I think I. I'm glad that hubs is excited. I truly am high right now. Now is riding high right now. You GotTa let them do that. You GotTa let him have his victories. Where where he can have them But I mean they haven't haven't even played a single game yet so I mean if there's because look again I'm not I'm not I'm not putting anything out in the universe. Just want everybody to be aware of things to remember certain things Jerod you can remember like high priced pitchers. Sometimes those health concerns They can arise sure Kim and look you get your you get your ring And you're able to silence. A lot of critics. Put a lot of shift to bed so not to say say that. He doesn't have one two three. I believe hubs at five at least five zero. Yeah so he doesn't have five rings in a row but has one maybe two and then doesn't quite live up to what I mean. Let's say question. Let's ask that question. Yeah how many visits. I think it's fair to say with all the talking we've done about how good they are and then being be club that was just a Garrett Cole Away Yeah how many is enough to justify it is one one was enough. I think so. I think if you sign a player to a Monster Albatross contract they win one champion. Iran was to deals of what two fifty two and then to seventy five. They win one ring. I mean it's all just like hey you know. Oh he got his re. I think is really all takes us one. Yeah I think I mean look as a player. That's what I'm talking about. Yeah I gotTa rain. What else did you would? You wanted to yeah okay. I mean realistically this. This Yankee team should win multiple. Yeah that's why that's why ask the question because it's like position to and it's not even an arms race. I mean they are the clear favourite. There's no one really standing in their way. There's no one who is talented enough to say that because we don't think so. I don't think there's anyone like like the red sox are getting getting worse. The Astros by losing coal and having him go to the Yankees have gotten worse And IF THEY TRADE Korea they're getting worse the dodgers agers they're losing review they're getting worse The nationals but that's what they are going to lose Ramdan goes back to La okay. I still think that they're not or even like like or even the I Guess Review Mad bums swap or just madman taking over and him slaughter instead of you That it's interesting. I mean but you also have to consider that Kenley Jansen is not what he was Joe. Kelley melted down the playoffs. The dodgers I again like the nationals reassigning Stephen Strasburg means that Renos not going back. They're they're going to be worse that that was their. MVP So name a team that was in a position to stop the Yankees last year. That's getting better or at least retaining being what they were in two thousand nineteen. That team doesn't exist tough to find one. The Yankees have gotten better. Everyone else has either stood or have gotten worse. It's it's sits. I don't think it's really I mean again. You can question it and I always. Just try to play devil's advocate and say look we don't guys are landing yet but the bottom line his. You can't put rent on a team and be like that's that's GonNa unless it's the nats you know if if he goes back to the nats now we're talking like that's a team that is capable of standing up to the Yankees in beating them But I think a lot of us believe he's not going to go back there. I saw a report earlier today Strasbourg is trying to convince Rondonia. Come back it's like like did conversation a rod speeches and bringing me back to DC. Open up the fucking wall. Give me two thirty five or more. I'm coming back to DC. Whatever I mean? Maybe he has has a geographical preference. We don't really know guy doesn't even fucking like baseball. I don't think a rough speech about winning. Multiple rings is really going to do it for them. It's you know he's another best best. Offer free agent which is fine. I don't mind free agents. That are like that doesn't bother me one bit as a fan but you put rundown paper baby. That's that's the that's the answer. The question of the remaining free agents. Who can you take input on a team that can that can stand up the Yankees? It's Ramadan back to the nationals. Other than that. What are we talking about? Yeah I agree I agree that. That's that's that's again that's why I posed those questions because those those I mean. That's that's where like it's is almost as is like this was about as competitive as you could hope for the season to been based on how things is played out who was where now with coal. And it's crazy but that's how big of an impact Garrett Cole has been that's how big of an impact starting pitching has proven urban to be that and it's just it's astounding to think that one power arm like that can shift the entire landscape to the point where it's almost like all right. Is everybody okay with just kind of stayed put now and giving it one more shot against those guys with that guy on their team now now as opposed to that guy on that team and based on what we know now about the Houston Astros offense and what might not be the case in twenty twenty Juanita has been the case potentially since two thousand seventeen. Maybe even sooner who knows well then maybe yeah so maybe it is that strong. Push Dude what I mean. Is it crazy to think that the nats could be feeling some type away now and be moved by the idea that Garrett Cole is now going to be the face of that franchise. He's he's he's Guy Are they okay with the like assures her Strasbourg Ren don't being their legacy and are they willing to to make that move to select like like that's a move that could solidify a potential legacy for those three. Not sure if that's something that means something to them which I mean because Kazeem is going to be gone is going to be out of there. No harm no foul. But you'll be able to. You'll be able to supplement that as well. Yep I mean I mean they feel like that could be. I would love that. That would sort of lashing. We're we're all just kinda rooting for Ren Dona go back to the nats now. That would make a splash that I would. That would help the cause. I mean 'cause right now with Garrett Cole like handling meetings it's you know that would make a bucket get splash. Yeah Oh shit. The natural do that. Do they really trust to forty five and a turnaround a cheap Rondonia. We're like fuck it. I mean half a billion to make a legit run at defending your world series crown. And then if you don't do in twenty twenty at least you're you're setting yourself up to be able to do it in years after that but because you could get slick with a little opt-out right you'd sleep with your opt out three whatever keeping there for three three at least three or window but right now geir colder. The Yankee is is. It's Jaffar getting the lamp. It's Thanos getting the stones it there's no. It's bad. News is bad news for baseball. I'm not saying it's bad. News for the entertainment factor. And it's GonNa be fun to to watch. Touched them actually try and put this thing together. It's one of those sick like yeah. It's it's it's so good for baseball that it's bad for baseball and it being bad for baseball makes it good for basement. Yes if that makes sense if you just listen to it again on slow right at about it again. mm-hmm yeah yeah seek you know you know that. I went to frozen the other night.

Always they're covering my backside. Well we are in a Post apocalyptic world now it's Garrett Cole off the Board Stephen Strasburg off the board Jay Jay Hayes not here with us in San Diego so I don't feel comfortable playing the free agent game but we can do an abbreviated version of it here. WHO which domino? How do you think is the next to fall? Does it feel like Madam to you or does it feel like down or maybe somebody else. I think it feels like one of the arms. I feel like you could be a feel like it'd be a Kaikal I so I I don't think it's going to be Kaikal all but I think if you're if you're following like You know those those websites that rank top free agents and you think that falls in that order order. I don't think that you're going to see just because rundown is probably the next best available free agent. I don't think that that means he's next in line assigned somewhere. Because you're going to see the teams that were heavy in on Garrett Cole are now going to be like all right. Let's shift. Our focus is to the next best option which maybe teams feel like. It is Dallas Kaikal but I have to believe that the the Hon John Reuse and the mad bums teams like those are the guys that are gonNA targeted next and they're probably GONNA get eaten up by teams like the dodgers are like okay so kershaw's not what what he was. We have Walker Bueller. Rich Hill Is A free agent. He's not GonNa Pitch until June Kent Eight is going to slot back into that rotation but you know it's there's a reason why he keeps going between the rotation and the bullpen So yeah I feel like the dodgers are gonNA grab somebody. It's GonNa be mad bum. Maybe a reunion well. That's yeah that's where I mean that's where again and and that's I think everybody kind of understood that the focus was automatically going to shift there and if the dodgers I mean there was never really much. I don't know you go back and think about it. There was never really much conversation about the dodgers ever making a strong player. Being strong present that report just came across the board was that the dodgers were also also quote very aggressive for Garrett Cole like Bu- I mean did did you hear anything no. I didn't hear anything about it. I never saw a number. I never saw an offer I never saw anything about. The dodgers being heavy in the mix it it felt to me like a two team race between the angels and the Yankees Like I you said dodgers are my dark horse but a team like the dodgers should never be considered a dark horse with you. You don't really look at if they're angels. Those are involved in. The dodgers are involved than the angels are. The Dr Course Nine Times out of ten But it was the dodgers here I is it somewhat depressing depressing to you like it is for me to think of the idea as like Clayton Kershaw in Madison Bumgarner in the same rotation like three or four four years ago. That is giving me a full pants tent. Now it's like Oh that's cool. I mean you know what does it do it for you no. Yes E- isn't that weird no I don't. I don't know that it's weird because I think if you're just kind of paying attention to to how things have been like. No no it's not weird like it's it's the whole mad. Bum kershaw dynamic is is just like I mean do those. That's that's such a great rivalry and there are two generational pitchers and their to like and just thinking about not like. They're they're connick because I don't want to say because of each other battles between each other. Yeah not only those were. Can't miss match up guys on on the mound but be facing each other at the dish. I mean you know Madame homer be getting a better a couple times so That's that's like the that's the off factor in the in the conversation of a Bumgarner kershaw putting them together to your point like before madams dirt bike business before Kershaw's declining velocities slash back issues that started to become nagging. Yeah that was really exciting. That was going to be spot. That was going to be sexual. Yeah I also think that because of the diminished velocity and whatever. The postseason results have been kind of overshadowed. How good Kershaw Shaw has still been in the regular season like winker? She had a pretty damn good earl's year but Walker bueller arguably a little bit better review had a great great year. I think Kershaw Kinda just got lost in the shuffle and his own rotation still had a very good year last year. Could you imagine what the postseason would look like. It was just Kershaw bumgarner doing well getting to the postseason. And then they're just like Clayton and We're going to need you to come into the office. So Madison is when he's going to take the ball anytime that starters GonNa be done. He's GonNa take that ball. I honestly don't think that Clayton kershaw would feel anything if Dave Roberts if Dave was like hey listen game one is Friday night We'll give him the ball the mad bum he'd be like yeah no that makes sense. But what if I'm saying he's out there in the bullpen to and he's is like trying to just like any due to he could be a game. Three starter like Walker bueller could very easily. I mean we're all just kind of pencilling in like what Madam might have a fucking four and a half year as first year with the dodgers if if he ends up there It's all hypothetical but I could see a situation where it's like I'm just talking about that thing about what the visual would look like. Oh Yeah you know like you've got instead of Clayton Kershaw on the mound in that late series. Got A happy a scenario that you would just that you're just looking for a hero that you're looking for a Madison Madison Bumgarner type effort and wearing dodger. Blue Yeah making that happen. They don't worry I'll do. I'll do it is I got I got on an and that's what I'm getting at is. It's like Madison Bumgarner throwing the final pitch and looking down to the bullpen. Like and that is how you bake a cake correct. I'd like to see it. Actually I would hate to see that I would love to sit. I would fucking hate to see it. Why because I don't want to because I don't WANNA in a look at Clayton Kershaw like somebody who is just completely incapable of getting it? Done the steak. He will still get it if if we'll put it this way because if madame because that's signing with the dodgers Kovacs sure then maybe he should've fucking stop playing in baseball really relatively sooner like Sandy Koufax did I think if you go out and sign madame reused not coming back Clayton. Kershaw still going to get his reps in postseason is just like you're not gonNA game one starter you might be the game two starter either. You're you're not you're not you're not the game two starter for probably a couple of reasons. One you're probably not going to go back to about. I don't really give a fuck about that so much. I think that I think I mean officially. We don't know who they're playing yet because it's twenty twenty and we're still in twenty thousand nine hundred meetings if you're good you're good I mean it's the same thing with like you know breaking up Chris Sale and David Price back eh two studs and they're both lefties in whatever we'll see we will see I gotta ask here's something else I'm all ears.

Podcast (12/19/19)

"Live from the Investors Bank Studio Woomera Sizing Gregg Giannotti boomer and Geo on the fans simulcast across the country on CBS sports network. Mark Good Thursday morning boomer is out in Los Angeles he has gone. Hollywood on us is currently filming will not currently. It's probably is asleep but later today. No no he's out there filming as Super Bowl commercial a very top secret super bowl commercial. That you we're going to see during the Super Bowl broadcasts. That apparently has all sorts all the celebrities in it and they're using the okay boomer thing in there so that's all I can tell you can't tell you anything else about it. It is under lock and he did his top secret. He'll be back tomorrow. Jerry RECCO in four or boomer today Good Morning Jerry. What's happening? I'm good you know so. I guess. No one has sat here. I know Maggie was here but it doesn't seem like anybody use the computers boomer left because the last two things that are on the computer federal income tax rates and sports contract numbers and how they affect tax like. Yeah I mean that is his. That's his drug sex tax talk and break it down. Those numbers that that that is his vice on loves it but when you see like so so you're on that side so sometimes you can see his face but like like I can get a sense of when he goes to those websites because I can look right at his screen from where I'm at his whole demeanor changes we start breaking down percentages. And how everybody's getting screwed with taxes. That's his favorite thing. And if he were here today he he would say Oh Garrett Cole is going to my wife right off his face when he sees how much is taken out of his paycheck from the Yankees and of course the press conference yesterday. Richard I happened to be in the car while this was going on for for most of it and Sweeney and Susan doing the the coverage of the Garrett Cole Press Coverage. You can't win a championship in a press conference you can win a press conference however and Garrett Cole indeed did do that. I mean whether you're Yankee Hater. A Yankee Fan and independent baseball as bullets observer. He did everything. You'd want a guy who got that much money to be the face of one of the faces of your organization though. I mean everything that he said. He felt like he was genuine. It didn't seem like an act. He had the sign which I do believe was the same sign. I know there was a thing back and forth yesterday. Ought to fake sign on. They may know for someone who has held onto like in my old bedroom that I grew up in that my parents still live there. There are sports memorabilia. Stuff that I have. There looks exactly like that. That is faded over the years. If you hang onto something for that long eight fades just like dad. Dad that to me was the same side but I thought it was great. So doesn't mean anything really know but as far as him introducing himself to the New York sports. It's world in the Yankee fans. I thought it was great. It was really cool in a goes to a guy who I guess you could say bet on himself by GonNa College and what he did. I give you grew up a huge huge Minnesota Viking Fan. If you're a big time football player and you got drafted out of high. It's a different sport but you gotta drive at high school by the Vikings. I mean it was the cow would run like that's like your childhood dream. Is He talked about yesterday. Being the Yankees Charlton Dream. It's amazing how he actually said no thank you. I'm not ready yet and I know. Oh cashman Brian. CASHMAN talked about that. How it wasn't the right time for him in the right situation and now is the right time and he's really season pitcher now maybe arguably one of the best pitchers in baseball as we know in that he turned it down to become a better pitcher and a better player until the timers right and now the time obviously is Zyppah? Boy that takes a lot to hold yourself back like that. I'm not sure I'd be able to do that and you. It's millions of dollars. I mean that's the biggest thing now. I don't know how financially secure or his family was at the time at D. ensure they were struggling it would have been a different story but he's a guy who also wanted to go to college because he mentioned how the education was important important to him and his father and his entire family that he didn't want to miss out on that and the pitching coach there at Ucla. So yeah I mean his story. We didn't really know a lot about him as a person outside of the fact that he you know turned down the Yankees. He went to Pittsburgh and the whole Houston thing and then obviously the way he wore his Scott. Boris had at the end of a game seven. I didn't really know a ton about him even when I was in Pittsburgh when he was there because it was a little bit guarded he was a young kid. When a J Burnett was there with the pirates he really was was the spokesperson for everybody and and Garrett Cole was quiet now I feel like yesterday we found out everything about him and then when he sat down with Sweeney and Susan? I don't know if you've heard any of that. I I mean he was just as engaging and just as personable as he was when he was behind the podium. You know sometimes guys or they're tired of doing interviews or whatever. He felt like he was a part of. This organization is entire life which has been in the sense of. He was a Yankee Fan. Noise a kid who was drafted by them. I mean this is sort. It was like this had to happen at some point in his life. If that's what it felt like and it happens in the prime of his career and for the eight year old this is the missing piece to what they believe is a championship team. He's been that good now. Does it translate back over to another another team. I don't know why it wouldn't. It is funny looking at him without the beard. He just he looks like a different person. Yeah and I know when you shave you would look a little different. He genuinely looks looks like a different human being. Yeah it's also the haircut to how is there a bug that flies into my in here. How does that happen all this uh-huh I mean it's seventeen degrees the bugs regime come hide in the buildings now? Well this is the problem that have been eggs in the soil oil. Yeah it had to have been what happened because we've got a real live wreaths and trees in here there must have. I've been like an egg that was in there and I hear about this all the time. People are spiders and stuff in real Christmas trees and like a moth or something. Some sort of winged winged insect flew directly into my ideas. Now I mean this is pretty. It looks great. I was sneezing yesterday. Coffin that you take some. I forgot I totally forgot generally this time of year. I don't have to take that. It's part of my routine in the spring and summer even in the fall in the wintertime. You generally my allergies seasonal allows you all go away not usually in a forest right but now now when you're in Holland into this yeah basically yes and not even here well for one day. Yeah I would still allow anyway. That was that was the last thing in the world I expected to see was a moth in my eyeball but yes so It was funny because we're talking about shaving beards and look like a different person. My wife has used that exact line on me where she says. Don't shave. It doesn't look good. You know you look like like a different person. When I told that story the other day someone tweeted me? Must be nice to know. Your wife hates your face when you put it that way. Ah I kinda see that. What if it was with three hundred twenty four million dollars Abu Right exactly you know but I brought that up to you? Hate my face because as you know this twitter guy brought this up. He makes a good point because the beard covers up. clean-shaven get married now are you weren't no no no no I ah. I decided long ago that this was the way to go looking face. If it's just not it's not good it even even add a lighter large obviously it looks terrible double chain and the fat phase and the cheek fat and everything but like even I mean it just. It just doesn't look right. Some people just need to have a Beer Garrett Cole me looks fine no matter what oh he looks fine. He looks but he does look different. Look as intimidating as he did as they grizzly look that he had right. It's different. I was actually surprised when I saw him yesterday. Wheels that Yeah Young. Yes absolutely much younger. I mean he's like a different guy. You look like you were getting a twenty four year old instead of a twenty nine year old house right. He's been tweeting about this. Like what does happen one day when that is the breaking point for a guy like now Garrett Cole I don't know that it ever will. Yeah I three hundred twenty four million dollars. No one's turning down but the did it even comes up in the conversations. Listen guys I WANNA be there. But this beard thing what Garrett Cole said. I've always wanted to be a Yankee. This money is great. I really appreciate this offer. But I'm a real superstitious guy and I feel like when I pitched with the beard. It gives me a sense of confidence that I don't Have when the beard is gone or if they have religious reasons for wearing a beer well that too. But that's a whole nother O.. Fish or that face. Oh you one day gets approached by the Yankees for contract. Yeah I mean I but to me like what if he said that like I can't. It's just something mentally with me. I gotTa have this beer. I don't know it depends on how it it depends on how much you want to stick to your rule and it's a team rule. The Yankees were so elderly. They do it. There was so hell bent on getting his guy. If Garrett Cole had said something like that they would have let them have the beard said exception here and then it happened. Has It ever the happened before it has no all right but just what I'm saying is though that they they have this beard thing but I think under the right circumstances they would relent. We'll see so far far we haven't seen it. I know the goatee right. They allowed that. Didn't they today then. David wells pitched your goatee at time. Might have just had the moon moon mustache the moustache you allowed to. You're allowed to have stash ranked. That's the thing that's fine but you can't have the full facial right. Surprises me with Al.. Ah Kidding aside. You're such a rules stickler. I'm surprised you don't like this. It's like it's kind of like this is what they've done for years and years and years. It's calling this is how we do it. We're the Yankees if you don't like it goes somewhere right. But that's all that's my questions like Geo saying let's say Garrett Cole like sure got the same money from the Red Sox and the Yankees and he said to them listen. I WANNA be a Yankee but I'm not shaving the beard. Would they let him go to Boston. And then that gets out and he says the press conference yeah the Yankees say money but they WANNA enemy shaved the Yankee fans that we probably but it's never happened before that's what I'm saying at some point yet. Someone hold all of the gun this chunks. I will say though if it was going to happen I thought Garrett Cole might be the guy to say that because he had offers all over the place you know is three hundred million dollars is it can be offered by at least three teen and the Yankees are the only team. That's going to tell him how he needs to look physically with his facial hair but anyway it doesn't matter he wants to be a Yankee. And that's part of it too with Garrett Cole. Is You know the fact that he was a Yankee Fan. And he he always dreamed of this. And that's part of the deal. If you WANNA be a Yankee you gotta you gotTa have the no facial now you just hope though. Now he's here. He's a Yankee Fan for life. Now you hope for him it goes well because we know one thing about New York. If you're making the big money and you come with a big price tag and big expectations. You've got to live up to those expectations. One thing. They hit on a lot yesterday. was what type of man he is. Yeah that's all well and good and that's very nice. That goes away real quick after a few bad starts yeah. I don't think he's someone that's going to be intimidated by a situation. I don't think he's someone who is going to. Because does he got the big payday. Take the foot off the gas pedal. I mean. The only thing that I would worry about is the thing that I worry about with anybody who signs a contract to some sort of injury. That's it but there's nothing nothing about his makeup. That makes me think that. Because he got the money or because he's in New York now where the seat is a little hotter all the time that he's GonNa Crumble. He's just not that I don't expect him to. I guess my point is though it's it's really it's world series and its cy young candidacy or bust for him like he's gotTa Have Nineteen Twenty one seasons he's got to give you a lot of strikeouts a lot of more than quality starts. He's got to give you seven innings. He's gotTa give you three hit performances. He can't go out there and be a pedestrian Austrian pitcher. Oh no he's gotta be dominant for what he is nine years and I know there's the opt out after I guess it's four years and who knows maybe that's all it will end up being as a four year contract and if that's the case for the Yankees that means they got their money's worth because he thinks he can do better because he's done so well Moves along deal. I miss a lot of money. And it's all it's a lot of years hopefully flee a Lotta starts. You've now got two guys on this roster and Giancarlo Stanton and Garrett Cole making a King's ransom one guy is not lived up to it. We'll see now if this this guy can't and I do think this guy's got the make up to do it. He just has to go out and show us. Yeah and I think to these contracts you got to kind of break them down in thirds right just to begin with did the right thing. You break it down two thirds to me the first three years right now is the most important thing for the Yankees they have to win a h championship with Garrett Cole. In the first three years of this deal and then at that point if you're able to get one of those with him being the dominant top of the rotation pitcher pitcher that you know he's going to be in the front half of this deal than the rest of it makes it more digestible. It just does. And if he does not then the pressure mounts so you know Garrett Cole there's there's two ways that he's going to be accepted if he's completely dominant or three ways if he's completely dominant and they go and win a championship camping chip if he's okay and they go and win a championship right. or He's completely dominant and they fall a little bit short but it's not his fault. Those are the three ways but to those three are them winning a title. I think that's what this is. A title is everything. They've already come within. You know a series as of winning the championship. They've been being right there the last couple of years. They've been one of the best teams in baseball. The last couple of years. This is all about championships. Even if he gives you a twenty four and four season and they don't win. I'm not saying it's a bad so I'm not saying that at all but you still come up short. Yeah but they're not going to be on him about it that that's the take pictures. Well in the postseason they lose because they can't hit again. which by the way the last two postseasons? That's why they didn't win. You know and I know that you can't just you just added that lineup last year for crying out loud you know. I didn't think that Edwin Encarnacion was gonNA forget how to hit. I didn't know that some of these guys were going to go into a hole in the ways that they did but the last is two years. That's exactly what's happened to them. And you're adding Garrett Cole which they needed to do and their rotation when everybody's there and healthy is is formidable but let's not not forget now that the Yankees lost to the red sox and lost to the Astros last year more because of the offense then because and this is this is where the conversation in comes in and I hate it sits overdone but it's also true. This is where it comes back to creating runs or being home run hitting team cause for whatever reason that you know. The power of the Homerun seems to go away in the postseason guy. Team still hit them but not at the rate they hit him in the regular season in the regular dealers season. You can hit three four five home runs in a game. You look like worldbeaters that all of a sudden you go up against one and two starters throughout the course of a series. They don't come as easy. And all of a sudden the mighty lineup lineup isn't so mighty anymore now. You're struggling for runs on the board next thing. You know you come short of your goal. I think they've done that with what you know with with the DJ Kayla make use of the world even What's his name? Gleyber Torres now is going to be there as he was last year. They've got different pieces. I don't think it's only about the home homerun but when you rely on it you know that's where you know come October baseball. It doesn't work sometimes and it hasn't right and that's another problem when there's such a disparity you know when you've got the Baltimore Orioles nineteen times and you just toy win. The extremes of what the astros are what. The Red Sox were in their championship year whereas compared to the Kansas city royals the Detroit Tigers. The Baltimore Orioles. Even the Toronto Blue Jays you fall into a false sense of the security of what you can do and why will it be different this year. The Orioles have done nothing. It won't be you can make the case. Baltimore is going to be worse this year than they were last year. Yeah so you've you've got nineteen more with them that's probably eighteen guaranteed winds which sounds absurd. But it's probably true so you're right about that the unbalanced schedule because of worth these teams are probably is a false sense of security at some point. Let's go ahead quick before the break. What's going on Anthony in Belleville? Good Morning Ko. Oh a rectal all the fan as you to shave your beard before you sign your contract. How would you deal with that? I love it and I would explain to. Dan Like we are on your wife would My wife would hate me. That'd be number one but I'd also explain to them like we're on on television every day and my appearance is going to not that it's great to begin with but it's going to be far worse if I shaved this is not going to ain't brings up a great point though you. I grew up with this radio station. Yeah intern here. All of that. This was your dream job. Yeah so here's your question New York F. A. N. morning morning drive. Yeah same offer in Boston. LA OR CHICAGO BEARD. Fine everywhere except here Greg. Bend over I don't know why that's relevant okay. Man Money's the same and it's great you got you got to remember though the the reason why it's a hundred percent I'd have to shave is the fact that I grew up here and I lived here. This is all right to live right while you want to do that. But okay but well you know why you you get it. Could I hate him. This morning is not the data talk about wanting to live here. Yeah but it's the war in our lives in some point. Our lives will probably leave here. But now's not the time you know what I'm saying like this. This is the stage here though. I am shoes. Jared Cole is a lifelong Yankee Fan. Okay so as a lifelong as long Yankee fancy. Here's where here's ain't gonNA put up or shut up lifelong Yankee Fan. Yeah you're going to choose the red sox because of your beard now. He probably wouldn't know a Yankee Fan. Shave it up. I would definitely. I'd end up shaving if the shoe would. If they said that it's either contingent on you being here. Not then then I would shave your balls. Yeah I would probably have to shave my balls that mind. I think that's probably a good piece of advice anyway but I don't necessarily know that they could put that in a contract yet. You you face. That's a different thing and David Wells did not. Apparently we did that was allowed correct on that. Oh Wow this is a goatee is allowed. Just not grizzly Adams cotija weird. I don't I'm not a goatee. Got Some people look good. We'd go t's I've never done that. Did you ever go. T wants all I did with the trying to hang onto my hair goatee. Yes yes that when you first got to fan or prior to. Oh I had it in Florida than I had that fan you did. Oh yes this is what. I didn't know him when he was here. What's the worst facial hair choices that like the soul patch? You keep the peace underneath your lip. He'll it's interesting. It's got a bunch of tattoos for some reason go. I don't know why that is pretty cool with the go diego. A bunch of Bob Dwyer had just the sole patch. Yeah and actually looks pretty good on him. Yeah get have to shave the head. He's got the task right like it wouldn't look good on you God. You can't really grow a beard right. I cannot but I did have a goatee. At one. Point was terrible. yeah go t's not good for me the shape of my face. It's just not because I got the you know just around face. It accentuates the big round moon face s US looking face. All right it's Jerry. NGO This morning with boomer off. He's out in La. Make it a bunch of money film in a super bowl commercial I saw on the fan and CBS sports network. It's the morning show with boomer. esiason Gregg Giannotti boomer and Geo and it's driving me crazy because I know the song. I can't hear the lyrics. Because it's ninety Jill lepore average. Can't I can't figure it out so I downloaded that frigging Zam Zam APP and I put it up to TV and it doesn't recognize it really. Yeah what a fraud. That is used. Google's Morgan farm land use Google to do what. Oh my goal sling google. Listen what is Google Kyrie. Does it as well just goes Siri. What song is this but if you just go to Google tested out so you go to works if you see if this would work see the microphone? Yeah Okay just click. The microphone. Listens to the song. I'm thinking that she would have that and should work. Yeah right job so I don't in. Which is it's a movie Zam? Zam is the original thing that recognizes Song Suzanne before that well. I'm curious to see if Google would recognize that now. We'll do that in a second but I had something better than that because I have a friend who knows every eighty song in the world so I call him up. Just go dude. He goes ninety nine left balloons. There's two versions ones in German ones in English. He's like yeah. I was drunk hammered. I was doing karaoke this weekend. Singing that in it was great.

But I'M GONNA I'M GONNA give this to you're going to hunt right into the phone all right. Are you ready.

The English version more authentic. It doesn't line up as well in the beginning like I don't know it just say it's even say ninety nine red balloons it's our it's lyft. I guess in German which is red. I don't know but if they are German preps that's why like a better because that flows better. Yeah yeah that's the thing. It just kind of sound American version. They said Red Balloon. Yeah Yeah Ninety nine red balloons. Yeah so anyway. That was the that was the story from From yesterday yesterday and she's aim is a fraud fraud CEELO an update for. Yeah we got a lot to cover brought to you by the Ray Catena auto group hurry in for great offers during the road home. BMW sales of ED RAYCATENA BMW of Westchester. And let's start with this For All of you Garrett Cole Sign Truth is out there. The one he held up yesterday is legit original from eighteen years ago. Let's go blue Sharpei but it's still be you can. Let's see the Elmer's glue on the side of the letters childhood Yankee Fan from California Mom tucks away the keepsake and it made its way east for yesterday's festivities does a nice touch. It's been in my closet. closeted my folks home for the last eighteen years and after I signed they brought it down to the house and When we had dinner and I was like you know what I gotta bring this Sweeney? Susan were live. Anchoring the presser yesterday here was the genuine reaction when he broke it out to sign. Oh my Yankee fan today tomorrow forever. uh-huh aside from the famous two thousand. Wow you know this is. This is a special man. Look in the end. I I laughed at that outlawed in the car. She said this is a special man. I was just something about that. He's learn that he's a special man I know he is. It's just it's just funny it. Just you know these press conferences. The Guy The guy did great yesterday. It's just that the boring of positivity be solved. I know I know it was good. I'm not I'm not trying to poo poet at all. It was great. It was just listening to those to anchor. The coverage was was making me smile area. He's also a very rich man. We know about the nine years in the three hundred and twenty four million but there was another nugget on the coal contract that came out yesterday so if he exercises the opt out after year five live the Yankees. Have the right of voided by adding another year at a cool thirty six million could end up ten years. Three hundred and sixty million if that's what it comes to But of course those looking for a similar thing. He's just thirty million thirty six as we always hear from these guys when they sign. It's it's not about the money but for coal. It's now where he always wanted to be. There's a lot of young boys out there. chase their dreams Just like I did and in how. It's about doing what he wasn't able to do in Houston the last two years. I came eight outs away from getting getting a ring. I felt like I could see the light underneath the door. And then it was slammed shut interface where it was probably never really opened. Actually how that right there. What does that mean? Say That what he said. I saw the light. He was talking about not winning the world series and obviously we know how the world series ended but he said I saw the light underneath the door and then the door was shut in my face and then he's added after that will. Maybe maybe the door was never open. Anyway I don't remember was game seven. Close Yeah I mean yes because he was warming up bullpen. Remember how how what the final score or was it kind of the moment. Seven nationals ran away from them at the end of that game. Didn't they know I'm talking about I'm talking. What are you talking about? I don't know what I'm talking about. Okay very good okay. Moving right along no. I just sounded weird to me because they did make the game. Seven of the world series. That door is open. When I'm seventy the by that you're right in your building to right? I think what no I don't know what he may really open. Because the trend of the team winning every single day you get to a seventh game. Mm you're that close to winning it and the nationals beat him up at the end of the game so like you're close to it the doors there and then all of a sudden it could slam in your face by but he said he he you you change what he said he said. The door wasn't slammed in his face. It was never opened. No that's not true. Because they were. I don't remember something up to nothing in the seventh inning. He meant somebody because he went out of his way to say that are you implying because he wasn't because Aj hinch never brought him into the game. Is that where you're going. Maybe okay you know or or something along the line like wonderful here now all right I know right. Let's stick it to the Astros there you go. That's the mentality to have. And the follow up to. That was is obviously highly motivated to get this Hungary's ever to to finish that Finish that journey. Finish that challenge. And in my opinion there there'd be no better place to do it than New York as you'd expect. Let me tell you something. This is just remember this so Garrett Cole in this press conference said pressure is a privilege coach now to that okay. Well later in the morning all right but I'm not going to save it all right tell you now because now I've already started this boomer. Says is that all the time all the time all the time he said it yesterday. Morning during the Anthony Davis interview at about nine thirty. What time was this? Press conference eleven. Who Do you think would be traveling in a car at about nine thirty Garrett Cole? Oh yes I believe that Garrett Cole who right now wants to hear every bit of positivity in the world because no one's going to say anything negative about him was on his away. Two of the press conference put on the flagship station for the Yankees happened to hear. BOOMER's say to Anthony Davis at nine. Thirty pressure is a privilege and he used it in his press conference because he like I will say. I've never really heard anyone else used that. Yeah and Joe and Evan. Apparently don't listen in our show because they were saying yesterday that he's never they've never heard that and how great that was and then Susan said the same thing with Sweeney. Oh I've never heard that that's great. Pressures was a privileged role running with like it was the greatest thing ever going to hear that ten times a day listening. But the other people here. Evan Evan Joe Dozen. Evan does listen surprise. Asi Does so is this. Is this a crazy. Thought as a real thought. No it's very real and and when The Yankees never provide him for an interview. We ask him. I think that there's a chance maybe you know what that's kind of pressure you want pressures privilege anthony go out and get it done for somebody. Hear me your son that happened at about nine. Only that Evan heard the Anthony Davis interview. Yeah I don't know what the hell they were talking about that. How did you guys get? Anthony Davis the radio when I was like what right and then the phones crapped out in the middle of it was that true. Yeah it was just unbelievable you know like we never put on a phone guest. This guy's top at a top op like athlete in the world. Right now so I do it. We decided to do it. And then the the entire phone system crafter. He's like yeah. Lebron is one of the grades. And there's no way to fight your way out of that. That doesn't sound like now. It's someone rips. The could be on a landline could be the greatest lake. I like speaker in the world when that happens. It just like it's totally okay. He's a good. If you're the sponsor that was providing him to all these media outlets you gotta have him on a landline land for our end off our phones. Phones crashed in the middle of the Anthony Davis interview my my bed. Yeah not good. No but he called right back and we finish the thing and boomer said pressures privileged where Garrett Cole stole that Enron ran within his own press conference and nobody can convince me otherwise got credit like he just came up with them on the fly. Yeah I'm telling you I know there's sometimes times we're boomer thinks like what he says like everybody in the world has heard like literally everybody in the world like he'll come in it'll be like you see the US ambassador to China. Clearly a listener said yesterday he was out there in Beijing. Maybe got it over the radio DOT DOT COM out there. I mean he obviously was. I'm sometimes I'm like I don't know I'm not sure but this time on at this time this time I'm convinced I don't care about the rest of your updates you all right. Brian in Staten Island is going on Brian. What's up man I was calling about what The line under the door. Don't be out. Yeah Yeah. That's that's go ahead. When he started saying it? He said he could see the light under the door. So meaning the doors close. You know what I mean and then you know what I'm saying. Yeah all right Brian. Yeah Day work man like the light was seeping out from under the door and the door was closed. But you could see the light but the door was open. It wouldn't be under the dog. It's sort of being a crack in the door. So that's why he wanted to make sure he's analogy was that's why. Why do you think Brian Actually thought that through? No I don't think he was expecting Gio to the call mid update. Yeah he's listening to the show. You know that happens Reagan. He was very clear to be seen it. Was He trying to say remember but I knew it had to do with the door and light. I think what he was saying. was that if the door is shut. The only way you're going to see the light is from under the door. Okay but if the door were to be open at all he said then there'd be light that would just be coming through the boring through so he's very very specific as to where the light was. Seeping light seepage. You got anything else of note over there. Nothing happening there. So we have some generic jetton giants. And we've got more Odell. I know you hate that so we can stay. It's fine. It'll be a lot of Yankee. Press Conference Tom. Coughing got far art. Did yes that's right. Because the Players Association won a grievance against the Jaguars so telling players don't sign with the Jaguars US Ozzy's pretty good shot. Khan said to Tom Call and your Stephen Adams sound later to from two days ago. Yes Stephen Glorious Yes yes the New Zealand Stephen Adams of the gift that keeps on giving you and I wish there were video from last night and some of the things he had to say because Chris Paul Got Custom suits for every member of the thunder which they wore to the arena last night. Apparently he hasn't worn a suit since he was drafted and he had some very colorful comments on that. But I've met yet to find the audio sound. Johnny has memory played Patrick Beverley on the court. Yeah it's pretty similar okay. Very good though. Thank you CEELO eats the morning show with boomer Esiason and Greg Naughty buring you want me to remind you about something called. The kettle met later. But yeah all right so now I gotTa Remind Specific Tanya. It reminds you are you. You're not handy right no I hate it. I can't do anything now. You've seen the terrain Christina that show they flip houses fewer flop now. They've since divorced and how they they have different shows or whatever I came across one yesterday and I. I really don't have much time to watch television but yesterday it was one of those days. We're actually because the calendar had not much to do so. It was Kinda on a neat that I came across this flip show on it wasn't on. HDTV why it might have been yes. Okay it's this couple from Texas and drove really handy and they get this place. It was called the kettle. It looks like this like this orb in Galveston Beach Texas in ORB. It looked like an orbit. Google right now have you the kettle in Galveston Beach Texas. Okay you have to see what they it makes me jealous and envious that. I can't do things like this like. Have you ever had a project at home that you're paying someone to do that. You know you're getting ripped off. Because because they can do it you can't yes sometimes but at the same time. I know that the stress level that I'm saving myself is more important than anything else. Because you're not an expert at because you can't do it well. I guess when I've tried these things when I start couple minutes in I say I can't do it. It's driving me crazy. It's ruining my day right so you knew how to do it. You wouldn't feel right right exactly. Well these are things I wish. I don't want to say you went to school for. But you know was trained to do out thinks he could be a brain surgeon if he was trained if he had the stones to do that. I think if we applied ourselves we can learn to do different things. I watch a show like this and see what they did with this thing. It's pretty awesome. I'm looking at it. It is pretty awesome. But I truly believe that you know people we'll have or are born with whatever you know a certain skill set that they can make money off of they got to figure out what it is right. There are some people who were handling you. Come up with different things okay. Sure there's some people who are multifaceted. But you know I can play music. I could do this. These are the things that I- creative person. Whatever it is? I can't do that. You could. Why couldn't you? I can't I because I don't have the patience. I don't have a bill to build a frigging kettle. They bought it and A flipped it and fixed. I'm not good at that stuff. I'm just not and I don't have the capacities. He were capacity by learn. I wish I learned it had to do things like this because I think this is awesome. That is I mean you look at that. It's a big silver ball basically right by the beach and they turned it into this. You can actually rent this thing. Yes this point in my life. It's it's an impossibility to learn how to do something like that. Yes it is too late to learn to learn how to be good. The ADS building houses. Yes it is when you stop learning you might as well be dead. Thank you go but I just I gotta be honest to to be really good at something like that. It's an impossibility for me. It is the stage of my life and everything that's going on. It's an impossibility. I want to know it's not it. It is to cut out all the things and that's not yes. It's a matter how much you WanNa do it. There's no but but you. Can you be a major league baseball player. No that's that's an impossibility. I also could you learn how to cut wood. Yeah you could you okay cut. Would maybe but there's certain guys that you look at those property brothers like those sons of bitches today. Do I didn't say being a designer again. That's years of school and so is this construction but you could learn it. You could come on. I don't think so good so I'd hang a mirror the other day couldn't do it on my own. Had to call a friend. It was a heavy mirror. You're not covering hang a mirror. We'll because it was a very heavy mirror and it came with one of these You know brackets and then I had to find the studs on it and then everything else for like eight dollars you buy this little yellow yellow tool stuttle. Timeout didn't need to do that. was in one of the BOOMER PEX I had A. I was like wait a second. I got one of these things. Boar's golf tournament that Duffel bag that he gets in there as a frigging stud finder. So I was able to do that but then I still needed somebody to help me. It's in the guy. The Guy who helped me friend of mine. WHO seconds tool belt? Everything established conversations or the electric. You they can't do that but just like he couldn't come in here and we do but he's for years and years and years but that's that's what I'm saying I don't know I'd still rather be the guy who could do this. The guy that could like use a screwdriver. And then you know play but there's something cool about being able to build things and fix things and there's something that's in mass just about the use that word on trying to emasculate. Because I have the same issue I listened. There are things I can't do. If you give me directions. I can pretty much put together anything. I gotTA follow it step by step see here but I'm a friend of combine. He can open up a box. Just look at everything. He could burn the directions and be done faster than I would be with the directions but I can do it as long as I have the assistant. Okay but it. Could he call all the college basketball game. That guy if he did enough of them yes of course. L. Come Out yes. He could We have a fundamental disagreement. Here jared I think people can do anything they I wanNA do as long as they apply themselves T. That's a lie. It's not a lie you can't you. Can't we just talked about this. You can't be a professional as maybe maybe as a kid. If you would have applied yourself there are different stages of life two different things at forty five. You have no chance of a world class athlete at forty five can and do it. It's it's the kid's gang See I think you're born certain abilities. Even if I had tried my damnedest which I did when I was in highschool of trying to be good I was only so good as you. Only get to a point where. You're only only so good so people just natural abilities so then you make sure you tell Sabrina that don't dream big at certain things you're not going to be. It's not what I'll say. Is You find the thing that you're good at that you like that you. Hopefully you like right because I was good at music didn't like it all that much and then I like this now worked out. But you know. Find the thing that you're good at that you enjoy and then pursue that but you can't touch be anything. Come on man. I mean I think I don't think clothes are doing anything is smart. There's a great like I think it's Dave Chapelle or maybe it's Chris rock or somebody who said you know. I'm so tired of adults telling children. You know that you could be whatever you want. You can't he's like I think it was talking to a bunch of college kids. He's I see you like a hundred and fifty uber drivers in this audience right now like you like some people just can't do everything and that's okay. You're going to do everything but if there's something you want to do try Ryan figure it out could try right. You could try. It doesn't mean that you can and tell them you can't hang a mirror is embarrassing but it's but it is it because I mean but it's not really because at the same time like this is what I'm I'm good at this someone else's good at let's you just quit on. It doesn't mean you can't do it. That's not quitting on it. You've decided it's not worth your time or effort right because you can't do it but I wouldn't do it properly. That's the thing like a skill like hanging mirror agree with Jerry. You probably could master for that but you know but okay heretical. No shot right but here. But here's the thing I haven't done a lot of that it's important because it's in my house now. I'm going to try to do this on my own in. Screw the whole thing up hell. No I'M GONNA call it a professional to be able to do it right so I'm not screwing up my you have the ability to try. That's a smart this aid. It's it's different but you have the ability to if you tried. You applied yourself if I practice on other walls. I don't look like in Portland won't watch someone do it. Yeah but I still would rather the the the smarter thing to do is to get a professional to do it not arguing that point it just is. I am not arguing. That it's these they call these the life hacks you know what I'm saying. You gotta you gotTa know you gotTa be self aware you gotTa know what you're capable of note you're not capable of and make your decisions based on that one quick one RBM Massapequa okay. Great Bobby help us out. No problem boomer guys guys you gotta realize when you watch those shows those shows they bring in a plumber to do the plumbing. Plumbing delek finished is to do the finish work. Those guys don't like those couple did not sit in their contractors. I know every other other and so for for you. Expect to be able to. You know to remodel your home or to be able to do something like that. Without any training it's impossible. That's not what I said. I watch those shows and I'm well aware they all have contractors but they have the ability to go into see it and they and they can actually do certain things that help it along that they don't have to contract everything out and that's all all right the morning show with boomer Esiason and Greg Hardy boomer and Geo people just losing their minds minds over the fact that the historic iconic Yankee Jersey has no way logo on it a logo on the front that is other than the interlocking and why by now I get both sides of this I really do. I get the fact that Yankee traditionalists never want to see that on their team's Jersey here is e. Because that's never happened and baseball. Is this thing that goes back for hundreds of years and the Yankees or the Yankees. I could get how that changes the uniform form and our bothersome people. But if you just think that that one little swoosh is going to ruin that Jersey. I think you're mistaken. I really do. I think it's different for you right now. When you look at it and you'll get used to it and it'll be fine but if you look into in the post got an article marshon thing after he got off Wfan for a day wanted to write something about something else. Two billion dollars. Yeah I mean the money here more than a billion in dollars from MLB Nike in fanatics. Into how these guys get paid al so there you go and business As janoris Jenkins said before it turned into a moron businesses business right. Yeah so you have to understand these things now. If they had the entire net I think the the Nike swoosh is also an an American iconic thing to and it's been around for a while if it were something like I don't Know Kentucky Fried Chicken. He was the basketball jerseys have weird sponsors on their Jersey now if it was like Colonel Sanders like on the front like that would be a problem if it were. I don't know any number of things that we see Amazon. Or something I think. But because Nike Mckee and sports have are synonymous with one another to me. It's different at first but I think people are going to get used to it and you you have to understand understand that if guys are GonNa make this money if you know people are going to consume the game in the ways that they are your things like this are going to have to happen so at first I think you're going to you're going to dislike it but eventually you get used to it but I understand the economics of the thing now. Would it be a difference if it was on the sleeve. Would people book care that much of Iran sleeve probably not right probably not but like what's the day-to-day it. You'RE GONNA notice it once the game start anyway right now. What is it GONNA the change? You're not going to buy a Jersey because no people do buy jerseys because right if you notice the sales now our office yes the sales of these jerseys surety on there you go up the idea. Let's see I gotta go back and find it again but yes so so you want Garrett Cole for a third of a billion dollars and that's going to be part of doing it so be it and how about this will be shop. Dot Com Coal Forty Five Yankee Gi Authentic Jersey was listed at you guys want to take a guess. Have you seen this number yet. Now this is without the Swisher saying no no no this is it. This is a real a MLB DOT COM Garrett Cole Number Forty Five Nike Yankee Uniform Authentic to twenty five to twenty five do you have a guess oversaw this in the article. We did not. Have you seen this three ten. Three fifty nine ninety nine for one jersey. Three hundred sixty dollars to put that Jersey on Celt seems absurd. Demand is up significantly based on adding the switch to the uniform bringing younger consumers to the sport. So you mentioned if you spent three hundred and sixty dollars on that Jersey and it doesn't work out like what a waste I don't especially with this is what's funny. I would spend that on a Jeeter Jersey right in authentic addict Jeeter Jersey right now because the past. He's done it. There's no harm to other than spending a lot of money hall of Famer. You're buying a Jersey for a guy that's done anything at for you. Yeah no I know but here. Here's what's funny though is we're trying to appeal. I'm sure there's another version of the Jersey that's cheaper are but we're trying to appeal to the younger consumer but we're GONNA make it three hundred sixty. Well they're going to use a credit card or they're gonNA ask your parents for it for Christmas or whatever but I mean the kid kid whose kids are stupid teen years old. How much money you gotta saved three hundred sixty dollars per year right? I think you're you're really more talking about the eighteen to twenty five-year-old that's very free with the credit card and Saleh's told the story on the air so I'm not speaking out of term but you know if you go back to and you're very close with him. He was crazy with the jerseys when he was in his late teens and twenties to where he wouldn't think twice once a week once every other week he would take credit card and just buy whatever Jersey he wanted ninety bucks hundred bucks whatever it was. I think that's who probably appealing to. Yeah if the SAL Licata credit card debt stories they're infamous. They are infamous talked about it. I know he's talked talked about it on the air and he's he's clear now. Good hundred percent figured it out figure it out but I think that's what you're appealing to his Jamal Anderson Authentic Falcons Jerseys Aziz the walk in with a newsroom pre penny back for a guy it was producing four to midnight. You know you're not kidding. Let's go to Tommy Ryan Asbury Park Mark. What's up Tommy Right? Hey guys how you doing. Thanks for taking my call Sir. What's up man? I just WanNa take listen to you guys all the time you. I love the show. I just wanted to comment on the Jersey Shore I hear what you're saying. Your point is well taken but I have to respectfully disagree My my my point of view is that. I don't think you should put a bumper sticker on a Mercedes Benz all right. I understand that but I don't think it's the same thing right. Because if that bumper sticker there was providing you a billion dollars that you split with your partners or your family or whatever so you can use it as basically an advertisement like. Let's say you're driving a Mercedes Benz and someone comes to you. You put this bumper sticker on every single month. I'm GONNA give you five thousand dollars just to. Oh you for having this bumper sticker your principle or whatever the number is your principal would outweigh that money. That you're getting in just to put a little bumper sticker on the back of your Mercedes. I I I I he points again. Your point is well taken. But I'm a traditional guy and I just I. I sure it's all about the dish. Listen Tommy I I understand that point of view and that's why I opened it up with the nuanced conversation as opposed to just a hard like you. People Are Idiots for. That's ridiculous I get it I understand. Can't that people who look at that Yankee uniform see that and just go man. That just doesn't feel right but you have to understand the context of this conversation. Sure and the New York Yankees just spent three hundred and twenty four million dollars on a guy you have all all these other players Ren Dome Strasbourg all this money. That's out there. We're talking about a Nike swoosh. which is something? That is recognizable synonymous with sports and are now making the jerseys on the front of the Jersey. Do a millions diner on the front of the Jersey Eh. Chico's bail bonds. Whatever it is I'd be with you? That's not right. That's cheapening the thing. The Samir Subtle Nike Nike is a different deal. But what I think. Here's the thing for old timers and maybe even younger folks. The point is like you just said you had to give Garrett Cole three hundred twenty four million dollars why so. He's not going to pitch for fifty million dollars. And then you don't sell out your jerseys you don't sell out the names of your stadiums to all these products at some implant. Why do you? Why does the sport have to be at a point where we have to give Garrett Cole? Three hundred will cause nobody's all within the sports. I'm saying thing as a sport because someone will. That's why well baseball is a sport. If Baseball's a sport you decide unto that that's called the salary cap. Well Yeah and also we just talked about this with the collusion of owners remember. The Players Association was talking about that exact thing going on like. We're not going to give guys these big contracts. We're not gonNA give veterans these big contracts. I don't think collusion I just think general manager smartened up but there's always going to be a desperate team out there. That wants to win more than another guy and it's going to drive it up. It's what what you're worth is like Garrett Cole in this world is worth that money that's what it comes down. Well See. I'm with Allan this. I don't think that that's the case as well. But don't but but it's actually the facts to the Yankees. Something anybody's worth that I understand. I get it but to me you're talking about is gonNA make this. This is the starting pitching conversation as well. You're paying a guy to make thirty two starts. Would you say you're at one hundred in sixty two games. I think money could be spent better elsewhere in a stadium. That's half empty and has three hundred thousand people watching on. Yes it does. The math doesn't add up up but it does when you billion dollars from Nike right but also I mean it does. The their their attendance was very good. Yes they had their. Our attendance was very good. And ballparks where there's five legitimately the marlins and the Orioles had games were there were five thousand people in the shore right. That's that's yeah that's a completely different story. The Yankees are hard like there is an argument in a conversation to be had about some of these markets and how they figure it out and revenue sharing and pocketed everything. What's the Yankees are just a different? It's a whole different conversation like they're not going to struggle for cash. Ever know ever so I I understand I do think halfway through the season. Nobody's nobody even going to be thinking about it. Have what the Nike swoosh I think for April first game. No one's GonNa know they will. It's the games I it'll great talking point. Once the Games start start. That goes out the window. I think it'll take a few weeks. People finally get used to. It won't talk about it but by not getting used to. What does that mean like? Who cares bitch about it like everybody Eh? They'll start bitching when they lose games. Yeah I agree you can have that swoosh on that on your chest all you want. Beat the Red Sox ten one. Guess what we're talking about right of hen one and then here's another thing thing that I will say. The Yankees win a championship with that Nike swoosh on the Jersey people that like. Let's say this first year with the swoosh that Jersey Aziz will now all of a sudden be worth more like that's the first year I won a championship. swoosh off. Now what do you think is a bigger issue serious question for for Yankee Fan because I know what it would be for me putting the name on the back of the Jersey or the Nike swoosh put the name on the back. Right that to me would be dad. I trust the swoosh that see that to me is completely different because there's no economic value to that really no. Oh you're right but it's also altering the look of the jurors. Yeah but when you alter the look of the Jersey for a significant influx of money I can understand handed when you're altering the look of the Jersey just to alter the look at the Jersey. No it doesn't make any sense to me all right. It's the morning show with boomer Esiason in Gregg Giannotti Audie boomer and Geo taxed after taxed after tax. WanNa show us what first class look like on his flight. Rub that in. And then He. It was just sending us like paragraphs from articles that he was really that was weird copying somehow bill is it and I couldn't take yeah and then all all of us ignored that came out of left field. Yeah it did. It made no sense. We were talking about something we were talking about the people in First Class with them and there was a guy on there who was an air marshal. Oh I guess who was listening to the show and then of course recognized boomer and talked about the show in sports and Sports of course and his egg sandwich from yesterday but then he just launched launched into some Bill Simmons thing and then just whatever pinwheel capture says attention. Yeah and he was just he just sent us all that stuff so the fire yet even before the flight about the snow squall whose tweet and pictures turnpike in Newark. A he he in those situations you know. He's by himself off board LEEWARD and he's by himself or the persons with doesn't WanNa talk about taxes. Now Shit an air marshal really tell you their Air Marshal Arts. Are they supposed to be on the cover. What we doing right? It's like bridesmaids McCarthy's trying to out the guy he's not an air marshal second. Kristen we gets in trouble jumps so put the gun that is interesting. I don't know maybe maybe the air marshals like I'll tell boomer earmarked but I'm not a great American. Yeah that's that's what we'll do but nobody else can knock down picturing going on air marshal like whispering dual come over here. Guess what. You're boomer size an air marshal. Sh I wonder how that works guarantee will get ten air marshals calling up well generally what I do is I mean we had guys like breaking down how to slice over easy egg sandwiches in half as video for us. Yeah there's one guy did a video yet at Stephen Atlanta. That was yeah it was Stephen Atlanta. Where you gotta go to get your overtakes sliced the right way Atlanta Atlanta? I know what Steve's video was Steve Steve. Cole's up a lot. Steve's video was this is what that place is going to do the next tall. Yeah I did see that. We need an update from Steve Own. I was going with his wife. Yes S. living heard back from him since that whole drop off situation shore. Yes so Steve. This is something you might appreciate as a father of two but Steve. I guess the work schedule with him and his wife he ends up dropping his kids off at school every morning and the wife would call him every day. Sort of see if everything went. Okay okay I get the text every day. Yeah right but he was tired of talking to his wife. Who is this what you want? I mean Paula. I only get you in trouble on if you're watching out of work. Do you text her when she takes the kids somewhere now. So what is the need. I you not trust us. A mom and mom thing I guess I don't I don't Oh textile like religiously about it. I mean I might say. Hey how's it going or whatever if they go somewhere different but on everyday school drives get a bad rap. I don't know it's no DAD's get a bad rap. I don't think that you can take that personally. I think a person it's a month no Jerry's I'm thinking it's a my wife does not call me every afternoon to make sure I picked up the kids from from school. If she did that would drive me nuts. Now that's different. Just make sure that you're talking the thought it was like. Hey how did he going kind of thing where there any issues with the kid was was the small talk after the check in shut up shut up liability charities not no so that will what he was saying was he was fine with like her wanted to know what was going on. It was the small talk afterwards. He couldn't take him with him on the air. Yeah it was fun but it was But it all started with is it always starts you get the kids off the scores everything. Okay exactly but he said that was his whole thing was interesting. Also what's going on what's going on here without percent and it's not just my why I mean I despise small. Talk phone calls. I can't handle it really speak speak for a living on the radio. I'd terrible on the phone absolutely abysmal. You know what I notice is I could do it to a point and then I'm completely done shit too short clock doc for me very short anything else right along yeah all right got anything yes brought to you by town fair tire. Nobody beats town town fair tire and nobody took eleven years and multiple attempts but Brian Cashman of the Yankees finally captured their white whale Garret. Cullen people don't quite I take the word no as well as these guys did and I would say it paid off. That's for sure you haven't heard the white whale thing. No I have not. Oh okay all right bye white whale. No yes the thing that you go after and it's going to be out of here at your reach. Dim It ultimately Seinfeld. Yeah so that means. They'll need surgery next. What happens at the end to give it away? Oh you having this he die or did the does the Yankees did they. You know they don't win any championships. And they would say that would be the equivalent Ahab dice. Yeah so which is which is Garrett Cole. In this scenario he's the white whale moby Dick. It's not required in school the long book right Yes moby Dick. I've never read it. No me neither cover to cover my interested in now. I can't remember Damn Book that I read in school right now to kill a mockingbird that was usually I did that I couldn't tell you what it's about but rave new world espionage letter hold on what's holding. Yes yeah what's holding Coffee Hatcher in there I read that read catcher a friend of mine reg shogun once every that any. Oh my God nine hundred pages show gun rights miniseries. Yeah Richard Chamberlain. He would read fifty sixty seventy pages a day and he was so into it. I'm like you read that and how that would take me four years three four pages. I'd check out. Ah He was into it. You do any reading these days because I'm sort of on the planes I do every day. You know what I'm saying but like a book I can't remember the last fiction novel little. I've read from cover to cover. I mean unless it's a a biography. A biography historical people which is good. Lord of the flies was another one every summer. I think I'm going to Lord of the flies. I heard. I think I'm going to pick up a book and sit on the beach vacation. Yeah not not enough. Yeah exactly I'm lucky to have at the second to open another corona. You know what else. Yeah here's called. I can remember as a little boy dreaming about being a Major League baseball players specifically the Yankee of course he broke out the eighteen year old sign from the old one world world series Yankee. Fan Day tomorrow forever. The faded colors and everything and Really touched Aaron Boone. And obviously as well the rest of the Yankee Organization and now that goal has signed on along with the two thousand three hundred and twenty four million dollars guaranteed the pressure on to deliver as an individual and to take the yanks over the top. He is all mysteries. Sure is a privilege Pressure comes in situations burned right big gains in September and October. Because you've played well all oh you're all right so an update on this. Yeah Billie Jean. King apparently is the person we need to really attribute this pressures of privilege quote to Eh name of her autobiography is pressure is a privilege so boomer stole from her I potentially potentially loves her. He does in just interviewed interviewed her for game time with boomer size so that could be a possibility. Maybe she stole it from him. Maybe this autobiography combined the Gate Right now. Two Thousand Eight Boaz Ben saying the pressures of privilege for the twelve years. I've known him not saying he didn't originally get it from there because he is a big fan of hers. But I still believe even with the Billie Jean King revelation of the biography. Being named that that Garrett Cole heard that yesterday morning during the Anthony Davis interview me then used it may be lucky enough to someday. Ask Him if he's that Zalono rumor. That's boomer yes. Thanks yeah I would love to know that. I wonder if there's anybody we could reach out to over there that we can get into Garrett goals to ask if he was listening have big shots in here all the time. You really don't think you're ever going to get a chance. Gary Coleman Studio Canals plugged them. Okay well I'm sure at some point. Be plugging something right. Well I'm trying trying to think you know. It is tough with baseball players in the morning. Unless he's in here right promotants off season about right. Now you get a B share. Alcan says easy beyond the station at all Garrett Cole with Sweeney and Susan yesterday yeah I know I'm saying like the one of the normal daytime shows like is he can have a weekly spawned heaven at five o'clock. I have not heard it's possible I don't know we'll see. What was it so hard for you to figure out what I was asked? A lot of things are uh what did he say exactly what he said in the press conference what did Garrett Cole say no no. I'm saying he goes on the show today. What is he going to say understanding of it? Yeah I I just want to know. The only thing I want to know is did he listen to. I mean I would ask them that one questions. All right. That's enough enough. You know the Tino interview with Gary Cole- did did you listen to us during the Anti Davidson Review and rip off. The pressure is a privilege thing from boomer. I did not Thanksgiving Jerry. Have a good time to Tino yesterday. Daniel Jones's Joneses locker wearing a tie. Tobago's Yeah I love. I love Paul Paul Heat about Christmas. I don't know he looks like the council. Just wearing the grinch Ange tiding. That's actually celebrating Christmas. One of the Great Christmas movies ever take. It is but I mean it's also you know the grinches that the grinch as crisp bubbly uh-huh how did it end. Do you want me to call them and see if he hates Christmas. One question. Yeah please. Because he doesn't have time for Christmas he's got to be in the bunker breaking down on the film. He has no time for gifts pomp and circumstance holes probably in his car on the way to the N. E. C. Trampoline Championships and he has to call on the Internet today. So you probably get them this hour. Hey man stays busy So the just one more on the whole pressure thing with coal. Obviously he experienced on the other side is a visiting player. This past October with the absolute Bronx's young you or your warm up for game. Three in and the friendly friendly bleacher guys are just all he was reaching for bleacher creatures and couldn't quite find that I guess they're the friendly bleacher guys. Clean that one up a little bit. That was what Sweeney and Susan here on the Fan. He certainly looked and sounded the party at the trimmed hair. Ditch the beard out of respect for Yankee tradition. No problem I haven't shaved in ten years ears but what Soviet that's the way it is if you're Yankee Shave. And that's what's up. And as you'd expect Aaron Boone was really pumped when it became became clear his bosses per hard after. Colle this off. That's exciting right. I mean right let. Let's be real about it that that gets your juices flowing. Yes it does. And for Hal L. Steinbrenner happy to open his juices flow right. Maybe yeah right get some flow happy to open his wallet was how because cold checks all. Oh the bike credibly talented. But makeup off the charts very intelligent very tough impeccable work ethic and twenty nine years old. I mean that's you put all those together and you know you got you got something the can make a big difference. How this press conference looked like he saw monster in the room talk but it was very strange like he like there was something the thing there that he knew was coming after everybody but no one else did if you go back and look luxury tax bill? I mean he wasn't like Adam Gates that was just like straight straight up tweaking like what Adam Gates was doing but this was this was different. This was fear it was fear and HAL steinbrenner yesterday here. I'm telling there was vehicles in multiple championships. There was there was fear in his eyes yesterday. Thinking about twenty twenty six. Yeah exactly so Kohl's going to retain number forty five you saw yesterday. So obviously he cut some sort of deal with Lugovoi which will apparently stay private and avoid is switching to number fifty nine as he tweeted yesterday to honor. His brother was his college football number at West Point so very nice job by him Season winding down for the football locals. Sure sounds like Daniel Jones will be back for the giants Sunday against the Redskins. Full practice yesterday most of the first team reps after of course sitting out the last two with the high ankles better on progressing well and and you know doing doing more and more so it feels good and You know just gotTa keep it. Keep it it'll send. Eli Manning back to the bench. Ingram was placed on Tuesdays. Going to Green Bay tomorrow. Morrogh have surgery to repair the frank injury in his foot hopes to be ready for training. Camp jet steelers at metlife Sunday. Jamal hold on a second all right so you just to stay right there. We're in the script you left. Good I don't have all right very very good Paul Dottino joins us here for a second. WFAN giants it's Beat reporter Paul. Do you hate Christmas Christmas. So there you go. We thought he might with the grinch tie I think he's celebrating liberating Christmas the grinch. Okay well. Apparently you're right and I was wrong and he does not hate Christmas. Paul Detino continued Jamal. Hey Do you have man boobs Paul. No uh-huh we really desperate to get to the draft at that point. I know I wanted to know I needed for whatever reason that day to know. Oh he's out there running every morning I think he sharinow cross paths about God. I wish I could get into running a really do it will hurt your knees though it sounds. I don't know how hasn't just completely he had knee surgery or integrated into one day. His legs are gonNA fall off someone. When picked up for me please? Can we pop it back in probably. That's a bad idea. It finally happens. Got Mike Outta here and I guess the full now can't have nice things. What about Jamal Adams? The he hopes to return. This is good. Getting better The chances of me playing this week is is very high and You know we'll go from there. You go very exciting adding Tom. Kaufman wacked by the Jaguars. They were going to happen. One way or the other at the end of the season but shod Khan decided to make the move now he was fired as VP. Football ops just days after Leonard Fournette the Players Association a grievance against the Jags and apparently the NFL PA had been advising players against signing with Jacksonville this off season hence the need to make a move. Do you WanNa Know Dell cut here or do you not care go for all right so he was of course addressing his future again yesterday fueled speculation he might want to Cleveland with some recent comments hence the report about him telling other teams and players to come get him he says fake news. You know like I'm not going anywhere I'll be here. We'll we'll figure this thing out. It's just especially. I'm not sure what special I have. No Idea Eh. Kitchens as the head coach. Oh how long though right exactly so I gotTa make a decision you know about the big nocco pool. I mean yes. It's down to seventy five five people all right. It's a split of roughly one hundred twenty four thousand dollars all right so you can pick any team every week. I'm one of those every week. Any team any team so and so it started out. It started out with over twelve hundred people. And it's down to seventy five. Wow even and with the ability to pick the same team every week. How'd you get into this thing doesn't matter it doesn't matter what not an easy week? Well there's Reagan's tunes with this is where I'm going with this. They owe them pay back right early in the season they got the one seat up for grabs. Seems like the obvious thing but M- see my my feeling he is though that if you're really going to win this pool Seattle you can't go okay but then you might be out and then whatever share I I would have the end of this thing. I don't have it all Seattle's I see. I don't like that I like Arizona. Why Arizona twice against against San Francisco played? 'em really really tough. They kick the hell out of the browns last week. And I think that Seattle I don't at all those teams in the NFC. I like I kinda puts Seattle adult towards the bottom. Even though they're like the one seed right I mean there's only two games that one or there's the browns and ravens anything else lost Seattle would be they just seven seven one on the road. They'd just come back from winning east against the panthers. Now that's like okay to division home games to finish up plus the niners next week which is a big game see. I think I'll probably probably get into cute if I go against Baltimore. Because they they would so everything up one seed all of that they lost to earlier. You mentioned the payback situation situation. Yeah but I also don't want to be one of these things where you go. What the hell was I think in? Obviously Cleveland would get it get together this week. All the it's trend in one direction and everything else and now you can really get risking steelers. I do like the status types that either. Well that's why I said. The brisk jets have not been bad home team. Jamal Adams GonNA play. I think I would not touch the duck and right. Do you go to stake your hundred and twenty five thousand dollars on Devon Hodges. Here's my here's my dream though is to. There's an obvious choice. This week. Most people are going to go with the Ravens. You would think and then that that team loses. You're still everyone gets whacked. I'm addicted to that feeling about broncos at Lyons. I don't know thirty the Defense Jeff Blau at quarterback any of these games this year. Is it in Denver. You're right Denver. Yes right I mean I have because I haven't got knocked out of this poll yet. I've gotten at least every every single week. You're sitting there looking at a result or to like how to help that happen with breads. wrote underdogs is here like thirty video games over five hundred. I've avoided the land. Mine have you have you have so we got to see. Why do you have to submit? That can go right up until like kickoff of whatever gained picking Does this go into the postseason. No they give you still have fifty people now after we get split split right now you would sued yet. Seventeen hundred dollars right right for one hundred dollars entry bed right one hundred dollars or seventeen hundred out that bed. You'll take that it's not one hundred twenty four but it's something. Josh aims to be the redskins something. Oh God you might be the only one that takes that game. I duNNo. It's crazy to me. I'd take the steelers before I would take the giants. I was kidding. Oh I wasn't being serious and I should just be be the what you're what they call the fish the fish and just go with the the Go with the real follow the mob. Yeah the sheep whatever it is anything else David Blatt the knicks hired Barrow citing and the nets play tonight in San Antonio Own the devils won last night. They beat the WHO the ducks Terry was three to one asking Jerry with the devils beat instead of scrolling down. We're headed ridden each the morning show with boomer Esiason Asya sit in Gregg Giannotti boomer and Geo one of my cars has an issue with the door when it gets really cold and this is the thing that I had forgotten about because it hadn't been this cold longtime so the door. Latch will freeze on this particular car and chew things happen when this goes on either. Can't open the door because it's frozen or or you can open the door but you can't close the door completely because it won't last John and the door is now bounces off of the thing. Just I won't close so I'm in a situation where this is the car. I have to take to work this morning the other car that and I couldn't take the work. Registration is up. There's another issue with it. I'M GONNA take it in when I have a couple of days off and then my wife's car I can't take got the car seat in it and she's she's got take our daughter somewhere. I can't so I'm stuck here. Three forty five in the morning not being able to shut my door. I'm in the car. Go live close. It's not closing and the thing doodle do do to do so. So I've now like panic mode what do I do too. I see. There's an uber around. What do I do do I go upstairs? Wake got my wife say. Is there any way that I could take your car. Can I take the car seat out. All these things are going in my mind so then I decide. The car will warm up at some point. So I'm going to wait here for a couple of minutes with the heat blasted and hopefully the door latch. Will unfreeze wasn't happening now. I'm starting to panic about what time I'm getting in so I said okay. It'll warm up I'm going to go. I'm GonNa go with the door urban essentially open and I'm going to hold it shot as I dry. So Oh here I was out of the house holding onto this thing. Meanwhile it's thirty mile. An hour wind gusts morning seventeen degrees. And when I'm going like thirty miles an hour on the neighborhood road. No problem like I could do this. I was holding because I am right hand in my right arm strongest. I'm holding doing the door with my right arm driving with my left. This is fine then. I get onto sunrise highway and I don't WanNa go like forty five miles an hour on sunrise. I gotTA lease lease. Go fifty five people. But you know it's dangerous you go through slow so I wasn't going fifty five and it's wendy wind gusts catches the door no seat belts on. Obviously so I'M NOT GONNA get sucked out of the car so this this is going on. I'm driving it. Mind you because the door is open. The interior lights are on as well. Wow so this is not a safe situation. Wait so then. I'm on sunrise. Ira Get up to Nichols road. On the way to the heat blasting heated seats on everything. I'm holding hold shot and I'm feeling okay about it then I'm like what am I going to do if I get on the ally and this isn't closing it so I thought to myself there's a gas station right before emerge onto the LA. I will sit. There could be another ten or fifteen minutes late. You know not to the show starting but to me getting here year. It'll be fine. I'm going to sit in the gas station until it clicks but as I'm about to turn Nichols road up to the L. A.. It's a tough design. Flaw clicks clicks in have ever heard that before. Oh Yeah and you thought that this was a better option than taking the car. That's not registered any no longer or is the registration there's A. There's a tires kid like dead satire. Scotland needs to be replaced. And it's like it's like ten PSI in it right now. Okay that's different and is this a known problem with this particular vehicle really. There's been no way to recall recall. I'm sure I was. I was actually as as I was waiting in the driveway before I left. I was going through message boards and stuff because that's the time to do it sure well but here's the thing it happened. I don't think it happened. All last here is the coldest day in nine months right. It didn't happen all last year. At least I didn't use it on one of those days this particular car and and the year before I had totally forgot about it and then never in a situation where I can't take another vehicle today. I was so obviously. Now I'm GonNa going to have to do something about it. 'cause I'm surprised you have. You don't have a car seat and that to wherever happens again. Could leave her with that car I do. But here's the pro. Oh the doors aren't working on that particular thing I'm not going to have my wife and wondering they're good point so I said it's better for me to put put myself in this dangerous situation in them so that that is the one big disadvantage we have we get up so early in the more. It's like a if you wake up when you're sick who were you calling three o'clock in the morning right? You're stuck you gotta go be. There was a time driving in this was either inbetween when Alan I were driving together where I had a Chevy Cruz at the time. Great car except I did not realize nut come equipped with a spare tire. Oh and I got a flat tire on my way in. I was probably twenty five minutes from home. Twenty five minutes from here. I was right in the middle. I get a flat tire. Mike no big deal and it was cold out. I can change a tire and literally five minutes. I'm not concerned concerned about it all good. I opened the trunk. where's the tire? There is no tire glovebox. What the hell? 'cause I saw there was a can of fix a flat. Oh aw no I thought the tire would be right and then I'm looking through the guy against this car. This woman in particular came equipped with fix a flat kept the weight down on the car. Makes Sense. I guess except I'm not using fix a flat. Three o'clock in the morning so I had an air compressor in the car to fill the tire up. I'M GONNA go home swap cars. My wife and the kids seldom school not going to worry about it but the problem was I would drive three minutes tire flat over. Put more dire drive through this. Is this the nightmare and here. It is and I did get to the show on time. I got it right. At six o'clock I remember Harris was ready to go on for me when I walked like six. Oh five Oh my God brutal that is. It's that time of morning what do you do. Yeah I know I. Every possibility was in my head every possibility and I just said I said to myself it will warm up I. I thought it would be before that. I thought it'd be a couple of minutes. And but but it took about fifteen. How do you fix that? You have to bring into the dealership and say this is going on. You know what's the deal I guess they're going to have to replace it with something else or whatever I don't know but yeah but it was just picture though the sound. That doodoo voted blue. Oh and the lights are on as I'm holding. It shot dangerous and I really. I thought like if I had to drive the entire distance in which is a sixty four miles doing that. Sixty four that would have been like the greatest workout. I've had in ten years. You know you're like you're luckier right. You can follow the car the seat belt on but also I think the door if I noticed that like the door was flying open and would have created a hazard for another driver as no way would have done it but I could hold a shot what I see I could hold it shot but it was still I mean Joyce take a three hundred dollar ruber into get if I had to next time. You just get some rope rope and tie it to the other side across I did. I did have that in the in the truck. If it was it was problem could have gotten it out of there but in tied it up. But I don't know I it's another you know what next time. I'm GonNa have to do that. And they have to have or could tie in hold hold hold. The rope would actually probably for the door handle on the passenger side. Yeah that's Aw and then have that in front of my lap though but the extra seat belt. Yeah unbelievable all right. It's the morning show with boomer. esiason Gregg Giannotti boomer and Geo sign Israel by the way. I don't care what anybody says. I know there's some signed troopers out there. You guys are dumb. This thing is real. That is the real sign. It's the same sign and we talked about the ninety swoosh as well. Let's go to Peter and bay. Ridge joins us on the fan. What's up Peter? Good Morning Love the show thank they yes yes they they must have really needed this money badly much more badly. Then I realize I get the Yankees are not Carlos Slim but the NYC symbol on the Yankee uniform. I can't believe it Doing business with a company that gives a platform to a guy that basically call all cops eggs. I never thought I see the day. I will say Peter that when this happened. When Nike had an endorsement deal Oh with Colin Kaepernick? I initially said you know. It's a little bit odd to me that they would get into this because it's a political debate. He's turned a lot of people off obviously. NFL owners don't want anything to do with them. At this point to be a part of the team on it seems strange to me now and then I saw that you know their stock price went up and then I said to myself well. This isn't a political statement at all. This is someone who had a brain was able to read the situation right. It was able to make some money so I don't look look at look at the Nike swoosh on the Jersey as something that is disrespectful to tradition. I don't personally look at Nike is is making a huge political statement with the key. The cabinet stuff. What I think they're doing is they're being business people and they think that there is a market for those who support the capper? Nick side of things that they're going to be able to tap into those consumers ended up working. It did as much as me. You boomer all of us. I didn't understand it and said that's not gonNa work and this is going to torpedo them. We're not the people that they were trying to go after. So I don't look at the Nike Likey Symbol as I can't make that leap. I can't see Nike swoosh anti law enforcement. I personally can't and you know how much all all of us are pro law enforcement and all the support that we throw behind our officers we talk about it all the time. I don't make that leap. Do you make that easy. Easy to Warsaw it until I call to me it was business Nike's paying. Mlb Four is the MLB or just the Yang and Sanel Jersey's got it right. I mean it's it's Nike Gi making a deal with major league baseball baseball making a deal with Nike for a billion dollars business right and like it or not. Pro Sports have become gigantic big business. Not just big business is huge. I never even thought that until thirty seconds shore but but that's the risk you run when you you have a spokesperson who is controversial. Like the guy that we just talked to. He's now decided he's made that choice. That Nike isn't something that I'm going to to by any means. He's got every right to do that. But you know for me I look at what Nike did there and say all right you know. They calculated the market. They were smart. Their stock price went up. I didn't see that now. It doesn't mean that because if I ever bought a Nike Jersey or anything that I'm supporting right Colin Kaepernick weren't pig socks. Hell no that's not at all you let me. Is that being so we gotta we gotTa make sure that these conversations are a little more nuanced. He wants right like you can't when we tend to do that a lot. Not We as in me and you but like our society these days when trying to discuss issues issues like this that okay. You're wearing Nike shoes right now. So that means that you have to be anti law enforcement. No no no no no that absolutely it has is nothing to do with the other absolutely not right all right. Let's go to Arthur. Long Island is going on. Arthur guys Good Morning Listen. It's not about what you guys think. Well when I think the question is before. They put that Nike logo on the uniform and before they accepted that one billion billion dollars what do you think they thought you'd think they even connected or do you think they said yeah what we don't care I don't think they no. I don't accepted the check on behalf of baseball. You don't think they connect the DOTS and Come on there. I don't think there's I think there are meetings that get held and it's about dollars and cents and how it can grow their game. Why did Colin Cabinet get get blackballed more from the NFL because they caused the NFL money in advertisement? That's the only reason he had fans basically writing letters owners of teams do not sign him. I won't renew my season two as a lot of reasons for but I don't think baseball has anything to do with Colin Kaepernick. Don't yeah but you don't think that that was the bottom in line with the NFL. It was the money and you don't think well money but but that's kind of fuelling. Your argument is that it was the reason in the NFL. It's also the reason why it's not an issue in baseball ought to be. You have to be completely naive to say that. The bees intelligent guys are handling the business aspect of baseball. Did Not I look at it and connected. Nike has hundreds of endorsers. He's one I mean if I'm if I'm baseball I can't be worried about Colin Kaepernick. Nick Right now. I think that they probably think you're both right. I think they probably were aware of it and they realize it had nothing to do with the other like this. This deal with major league. Baseball has nothing to do with anything that they have to do with Colin Kaepernick. But listen. I'm not going to tell somebody not to be a did not like Nike or not support Nike because of their own views. You can do that. But but Major League Baseball. I think decided all right. This is the best deal out there. Mike is Nike. And this is what we're going to. This is what we're GONNA do. Oh and you're right. The the money argument money fueled at all and captured by the way. There might be a good chance that in the next few months or whatever whatever that deal is you know goes by the wayside because I think that he hurt himself more than anything there in that whole fiasco with the workout and I don't know if he's going to keep those endorsements or not all right now now. I'm trying to get a list because I'm just curious how many people endorse professional athletes. Endorse it and I know. I understand the lightning rod topic that he is you know. There's so many guys. So many professional athletes that endorse Nike. I don't think Major League Baseball got into a room and said is there going to be backlash over Colin Cabinets. Different sport right. I mean this is also the same in professional sports. If we're going to be you know make a big deal out of that then. Let's make a big deal out of every guy who's ever gotten himself in trouble with the law to roll Chapman's got a domestic violence thing on his like if they if Domingo Herrmann comes back and puts on that Yankee uniform. Is that guy going to be as outraged by that. You're going to be more outraged at the swoosh is on the Jersey or that the jerseys on the mingle hormone like these are the things we pick and choose these things I personally and I don't believe this is from a naive viewpoint. I I don't believe that you're from a naive viewpoint at all. When I don't have the synonymous one thing to another with Nike and Cameron? I don't New England and all kidding aside if you're going to have the viewpoint then don't watch I'm not GONNA run them all down but don't watch Brooks Kepco and Tiger Woods just to name a few. Don't watch Rafael Nadal. Don't watch Madison Keys. Don't watch Serena Williams. It's amazing how many people endorse Nike is. Just one one doesn't need to in this case. What about Michael Jordan? I mean how about that. Well that to so many of them here. It's it's absurd. I mean if you think like when I think Nike I think Tiger Woods I think Michael Jordan. Those are the guys I think. I don't even think of it. I really don't I don't even think about but Allen capital I know Oh yeah with Colin Kaepernick. I'm talking about if you told me. Think of an athlete with Nike Athlete. Right off the top of your head Tiger Woods Tiger by the TWA Nike. That's the frightening. I think of more so than in Jordan actually which is good. Well it's been a long time Jordan. I mean tiger. We still see right true very true. I mean where I mean Colin Kaepernick on that list. I don't to be honest with you. I don't even think I had a warrant for that Cole. I'm not even sure what remembered it right. That's my point that's my point and again your decision to support. It's fine. I'm not I'm not tell anybody like if if someone calls up and says listen. I've made the choice to not buy any Nike stuff anymore. Because this is the way I feel you are entitled to that good good more power absolutely sure and that's what's great about the different viewpoints stuff as you're allowed to do that but when it comes to you know the business aspect of things like somebody's you know in that meeting and it gets to a billion dollars to major league baseball. They're not going to stop that deal. Because of one and Colin Kaepernick commercial. That might have been made a year ago. Just not going to happen agreed. Each morning show with boomer Esiason Gregg Giannotti boomer and Geo you know there was a story in the warm up show Jerry nowadays from five forty to six hundred twenty five forty five to six sorry five forty five or six. Yeah and you guys were talking about Dart excuse and there's audio from Dr Story that I've been waiting for us was if you remember yesterday. I said up. Yeah I was nine. I figured whatever whichever year era year why would you ever our was twenty seventeen. I said you do. We have time for this. Atta hold it till tomorrow. You remember that nine thirty. I was listening there you go. This was was the story and this was somewhere else in the world In London I believe and it was the pro darts that PBC the PD the pro darts championship inch. Yeah I believe there were ninety. Six contestants I believe and only two women and a woman had never won before ever and then we have the Audio uh-huh championship game this past at nineteen in the crowd and believable crazy. What type of arenas China's this in a video of this video games the pro dart whatever the World Darts Championship? It was their twitter people that put out the video OK. P WAS ON TV in America. or not but I. But he's got like millions of us. I'm sure does I really don't understand Stan. And maybe they weren't. I don't know maybe they weren't allowed to compete the first time. A woman's ever beaten a man playing darts in this League Tournament Championship. I'm sure somewhere across crossbar in the world along the way women's beat him happens all the time. I'm just surprised in this. I don't know I wouldn't think that it'd be that stark difference but I guess there it has been maybe the interest hasn't been there on the could be as AL pointed out. You look at the woman who won. She's clearly on steroids. Yeah nothing like that. Steroids going to help you. Yeah you gotTa have a truly right steroids. If you go back to the Barry Bonds Time they always said the eyesight. Oh okay so you never know. Oh Yeah I'M GONNA say no strict testing policy in the DC. That's what I'm going to say but yeah a lot of people at this. I was just watching a video taunting I wanNA people Chen for. Yes yes a little post match reaction from Fallon sharrock shore swimming. We don't get the recognition and let me deal with men now just prove yes. We can compete as men. Yes we can be as good as the man darts. Yeah of course by the way Jerry take a look at this this Match here this was as a real match between two people at the world championships. Okay Guy's name no come on. That's I'm not saying there's no way no chance does name. No no no no for names ain't no different named champ. You'll find the right now. He's not talking about proud of Mir either no chance that's not real no that can't be real. Hey No no no nope nope NOPE NOPE nope. That's not real. That is not real because that is the same in every Germany in Russia in California and in Africa. They're the same wasn't a good idea to Google angle that no I'm never going to be able to it. Looks like a real betis on Google. His name in quotes though the full name as opposed to a serial killer. Now you can't do that. That's not real. I'm sorry all right Chris continues. I didn't even start so Chris starts brought to you by town fair tire. Nobody beats down fair tire. Nobody now while Google's way you're very excited about this fired up Garrett Cole hitting all the right notes in his introductory press conference Yankee Stadium yesterday say God for Blessing me with this amazing opportunity to fulfill my dreams guiding the pause pause after I'd like to thank God for what he's trying to remember what he's thinking for us two least favorite things God and the Yankees and Birthdays Childhood Yankee Fan. Donning the pinstripes then thinking long term about that decision as well at some point. We're going to have a family right. And so what better way to set an example for your kids about chasing chasing your dreams and and following through then then actually doing that yourself less. You're Greg and then you tell your kids know dreams dead seven example for your kids. Three hundred and twenty. It's out there. But obviously he's got a lot of respect and admiration for the Yankees Organization is is the best of everything everything they do and when you have an opportunity to work for somebody like that and you just you know you take advantage of it and busted out the done it for half the price no not busted out the eighteen year old sign from the one world series and confirmed it was the original that was a hit. Obviously certainly blue. Aaron Buono affected you still have that I think really shows you how much he cared about this. And what it means to him to put those pinstripes on today sounded like the most. Yes aside from Bobby Holik who who when he signed with the Rangers said I'm going to be honest. They paid me the most. Can you think of another athlete. That's done that. I'm sure someone has but it's rare yes. I would agree very refreshing. That didn't work out too well for the Rangers didn't but that press conference goal of prisoners. uh-huh I forgot. I remember saying they paid me more. Probably should have been our first sign. It wasn't gonNA work out so I do think with Garrett Cole and I know he mentioned all those other things but other teams would have paid him. That amount of money I. I don't think that the Yankees necessarily but other teams offer that I read yesterday from the athletic that the angels offered to three hundred million dollar deal with deferred money. No not the angels. The dodgers and the angels came in below. And there's no deferments with the Yankees right now. Yeah no deferments Noah performance bonuses. It's it is what it is he's got the opt-out after year five and as we learned yesterday yesterday if he exercises that the Yankees could void. It tack on another year at Thirty six MIL. So it'd be ten years three hundred sixty million bucks jank's brought in the whole contingent to sell them on the of course that meeting out in California and as we learned yesterday that included them bringing a bottle of wine that I guess he had mentioned to the visiting clubhouse clubhouse manager right and then they alerted boon and company to that. It was a wine that he shared with his wife for an anniversary trip to France or something apparently was a big hit. It's very very difficult to get. Yes this wine so when they showed up with that bottle of wine they say his face Linda plant. Where the hell did you get this thing? And how did you know. And also apparently they built Elsa contraption with the play at home plate with like opens up with an ipad and everything else and it was like gold home plate and no one else. No one else did anything. The information about New York and living in New York and their baseball staff everything so some of the best places to live. Hi Hi Garrett Hi children it doesn't have any children you will someday though right. Ah They just put Paul old in inside of the home. That was a long ash trip and my legs are killing me but right here now at the coal household this is where you live in New York City. Actually don't live in New York City because there's a bunch of rats. It's far too expensive. Give the traffic socks. And there's construction everywhere if you'd like to live in a very safe community the best neighborhood watch in our tristate area happens to be mad on Jersey man to man man there that will be paying attention to you and your family every day all right place to live it is. It's a beautiful place. You don't even live there picture. Gold plated the giant home plate. Brian cashman pushing it into his house. Opens it up hold time well well California flights no joke you the music. That's go over this. What are we doing? I uh all right. What else boone? As as the top his rotation out another positive editions of the club. How important culture is to me? How important our room is to to me? How important our clubhouse is to me and I feel like it's something that is an overwhelming strength for us and Brian Cashman? Echoing that sentiment notch Gotcha. Excuse me not just about the player. It's about the person as our fan base is going to realize that this is a very thoughtful genuine competitive physically talented person and he is going to fit really well in this clubhouse amazing the differences voices very through three seconds of bone. Three seconds of Cashman. How important culture is to to me? Our Fan base is GonNa realize this and then there's how Didi who made it clear. Since the things were priority coal that he went to the phillies and here was how on the Guy who replaced Derek jeter so it is hard but it is. It's my job. It's gotTa happen. I mean I've got to be able to think somewhat objectively on these things and and it is tough. I mean a great player in the grading Went Bang Bang. It's great human being time's running out. Uh cashman. And how it's Susan here on the fan and the Yanks are one of three teams. Oh luxury tax for two thousand nineteen along with the cubs in the red sox. It's a franchise record. Thirteen point win four million dollar bill for Boston. While the Yanks Oh a much more pedestrian six point seven mill. NFL locals play out the string. Pat Shurmur says Daniel Jones's status has always been just about his health. Nothing more and once healthy he will resume as starting quarterback we committed the Daniel Starter. He was our starter the last couple of weeks he couldn't and start so he let went back in there. So so I'll double down on that. Let's not over thinking about sentimentality. And Jones was a full participant practice yesterday down on what they're just constantly grown him over there and he doesn't like obviously be put under the microscope. It is what it is giants redskins Sunday in landover. And you get the jets and the steelers in metlife. Jamal Adams sounds like he will return from an ankle. Injury is jacked up face Pittsburgh playoff atmosphere. They got they got to win To get into the playoffs. And you know this. This is what we're doing. We're treating you like a playoff game so we're going to compete. And he admitted they are expecting steeler fans in the stands and that worked out pretty well and the cowboys came in here few weeks back earlier this year when the jets beat them up toward Tom Coughlin fired by the Jaguars. As VP of football ops just days after Leonard the players want a grievance against the Jaguars coughlan seventy five seventy seven. Something like that Eddie. When I called in as Tom Coughlin the Steve somers they did a bit and then for an hour afterwards people thought it was really tonk off when I had said stuff in there that was just completely nonsensical? We'd probably find like I said I said that like my my grandfather was a fish or something like I said. Something ridiculous victimless in there. And people call. I can't believe Tom caught. We did this whole thing where it was before it was two thousand and seven. It was before the Green Bay giants. NFC Championship all the red face. Game for off on the with the The freezing cold at Lambeau and the bit was that Steve was gonNA call the hotel room of Tom Coffin and Green Bay and ask them how things were going in and Tom like was gonNA have none of it so I went to the old studio city. We that's all we talk about. I'm I'll be angry Tom Golfing. Ub Steep so we do this thing and then it goes on for a minute or something I hang up the phone. Screw you summers. And then for an hour after taking. I can't believe Tom Coughlin. Is that mean to you like it wasn't giant fan saying why are you bothering the coach. That's what I thought it was going to the fairness. Yeah yeah you once had joe believing that you could buy tickets for Yankee game that would hover above the field in in mid air and bringing back. You know the Hologram program or something to sit with Ruth gehrig ship but Joe's one person one on one person. This was multiple people that I knew in a space food over of the field for a thousand dollars. A game is about baseball. Come on another one about an indoor golf course something like a full length golf course. I remember hearing audio about guys. Got Him on that. Got Him. On flunked Jerry That was more recent right. Yeah I got him on. Flip the proudest confusing. Somebody was when I talked to Joe's wife Terry as Joe in the newsroom. For a couple of minutes. So why are we doing this weekend. We got news weekend now. Not really you know and then I was like sorry. I can't do this because if she said something personal the problem but she's she called the newsroom. It was me said. Hey Newsroom Greg. Hey Terry how's it going Joe Joe's in a break right and I'm like got to do this once I got to just try you know Terry A.D. Over the phone. It helps like when you have the phone line chess masks it enough to really be believable and you have background noise of the newsroom helps also yeah poor thing you know the one time you got people people already when you turn on that that one if we could ever. I don't know if we could ever play that. That sounds mean what I don't WanNa play. There wasn't profanity's he's on this. I was like dude. This is like ten does the statute of limitations expired on idea. I'd have to go back and listen to it. But so Steve somers. Homer did a bit when people who now works at the network was the producer and Pete was a stickler for making sure that nothing went wrong. There was nothing controversial. Everything has to be right so they were doing some sort of decky Matsui. Something and they had used Japanese anime sounds so it was Japanese cartoon people screaming and Japanese like when decky Matsui hit home. Run so pete was worried about this. That like this doesn't sound right. People are going to be offended. The Japanese community is going to be offended by this world. Like what are you talking about. It's just they're not cursing they're just decky Matsui's Japanese like Japanese cartoons Orleans is really not anything to be offended but then I got word of it that he was really scared he was getting a phone call so I went into the studio. I called Pete. Beat as Chernoff. There's never air for my own entertainment. I called Pete Has Chernoff and I said that the Asian Defense League the AD L. was leaving voicemails for him and like this was a fireball fence. United why I've got fifty voicemails from the Asian defense leak back. Did you play something last night. And then he was just ripping every. I didn't WanNa do it Stephen System. We do it to me. We never played it so then I was going to put you in the producer you have to. You have to be the one and so then I had them going for not. Tony was fired. Probably almost gave them a heart attack. Yeah pretty close now this classic that one. Yeah those people yeah. You stepped it right before he hung himself. That's why he's still here. Yes he did have hair then go all right continue The Nets played out in San Antonio against the Spurs. We'll have coverage on the fan eight fifteen. What else can I tell you? The sixers finally lost a home game last team and the League did you that. This season is the heat built up a big lead held on to beat Philadelphia. One eight one zero four former six or Jimmy Butler has got Miami Up to twenty and we're content with who we are. We love who will run another we love compete with one another. So one star two stars no stars We're playing some good basketball celtics of the Mavericks One Nine One Zero Three Blazers dumped the warriors. One Twenty to one eleven as Lillard mccollum and mellow combined score. Seventy eight Portland. I will have that Stephen Adamson for your next hour and also work in the stuff about last night. The thunder showing up to the game and the custom suits that Chris Paul bought for them and some of the things that Adams had to say about that very interesting. All right thank you see. It's the morning show with boomer. esiason and Greg Nadi boomer and Geo it was a gambling documentary. Oh Yeah I do. Yes now that you mentioned it so it had some of the daily fantasy guys the Nair and the main star of this gambling documentary was named Vegas Dave and Vegas has his wail. Plays in Vegas Dave you you know. It's five hundred dollars. Five hundred dollars for his whale plays. It's coming in. It's coming in look at like buying this. I'm going to Mexico. I'm doing this. And he's watching games at his parents. Whatever else so I mean the guy and he also had some issues to where the law and then casino shot him down and different things but like the last episode is him him losing his shirt basically in the chargers patriots game and then people just hammering him because he said take the chargers one of his wail plays people paid for and everybody lost everything but what he does is? It's all social media. He gets people to believe that he has has some sort of method. That's better than everybody else. And then people are so obsessed with having an edge they think Vegas Dave knows they pay for his picks and then you get somebody who you actually wins one of those beds because basically it's a fifty fifty proposition right. Then they think Vegas Dave really does know and they stick with them for a little bit so vegas days back in the news now I you know Holly Saunders yes absolutely from Golf. Yeah and I think she worked for Fox for a while to football. Well I think football. Yeah so Howie Saunders was seen with Vegas Dave now. I'll put this in email a couple of days ago and I said this is Vegas Dave. What he's doing here is he's? He does have cash from the city to pay him for his well. Plays would vegas Dave is doing here is he's giving holly saunders some money Johnny. She's smart enough to take the money so he can be photographed with her. That's gotta be what's going on. 'cause Vegas Davis Ski Number. One leaves leaves a trail of slime wherever he goes a he is the worst and he's not he's not an attractive guy either physically personality wise like he's someone that you you see you go the other direction every single time. So I'm thinking how in the Hell is Holly Saunders with Vegas Dave so it's got to be a farce has to be then two days later I find out Holly Saunders Vegas Dave engage this. How is that that possible now? She's got to be completely F- shopping ahead to be. WanNa be with this guy. You saw this guy yes now. I'm some people say. How do you know who really is? It's the documentary. TV because it's a documentary and because you know in this gambling community. He's also known as a joke. Like how could she be interested in this guy and she was previously dating cliff Kingsbury complete opposite. Vegas Dave Right. I'm successful. Football coach coach attractive. People say Ryan Gosling cliff kings buried. Vegas Dave come on and then she and she married Eric Acilia to write. She was with him. That was when they were both working at golf channel. I believe there isn't she's had. This has to be a divorce. Money play for her has to be or maybe some UK oddsmaker was giving odds on it and they bet on you know that's a good idea. Yeah that could have been in like Vegas Dave marries. Mary's Holly Saunders plus a million. There's no way that she actually likes that guy. I don't I don't know her but I I can't imagine that this is a real thing. It looks legit. Gang fly looks legit but is there a pre nup situation. And he's you're telling me that she's not going to go straight to like all right. That's IT Vegas Dave. I want out of this thing. GimMe half of this cock the money that you got from these idiots these donkeys. Sit there and pay you for your stupid picks the fat what I'm saying I feel like she's been especially because she broke out on the scene with golf channel and at the time I used to watch it a lot. She's only thirty two. Yeah I know this wishy twenty when she worked golf channel. I like give me another explanation for what's going on here other than her going. Money gradually fell in love of Greg. She didn't fall in love. With this two-fifths it's impossible. It's impossible and if anybody is giving this guy money right now for picks after watching that documentary but this guy successful. You're telling me yes. And no I mean he's. He's found a way A to prey on the vulnerable addicted gambler. The fat so like so people say well you guys were gambling spots all the time. Well here's the difference. What we do is we say if you like this if you like that that if you would like to bet this is the place to do it right when I read these spots? That's the way that I present. If you're in Tibetan on this game tonight this this is the place. I think you should do it because this is the place that I think is the best what Vegas Dave does is. I've got this pick. I will win you money. Isn't they all. Do I go out to these guys. Yeah I'm not seeing. He's the he's the only does it. But that's Vegas. Dave is one of those guys I will make you rich look at me. I'm I'm rich. This is how I got rich. If you pay me I can. You're rich too. That to me is a a whole different kettle of fish. Dave Yeah Ana Sia maybe is sharp. She tells people you tell me if you buy this or not. This is her quote people magazine mm-hmm I was so taken by Dave's personal story and his rise above adversity. Become a self made man that I sincerely fell from instantly. Sure now I don't remember for a lot of adverse versity. He's parents were alive. They had a little dog like it didn't I don't think he had a First wife was killed as I think he was any adversity. It's just weird again. Having watched her on television and she had a golf career in. I think she was a really good college player. It just seems I don't know I mean there's hurry on. TMZ going into a strip club. I go have a blast. But he's taken restrict clubs and maybe maybe odd. Maybe they both like bottomfeeders right. Maybe they both. It just doesn't seem like the same woman that I watched on television. Couple of Columbia couple of flounders down at the bottom. Maybe that's what it is. I guess he is as you would say the pits yet guys totally the pets. Let's go go to Paul in Waterbury. What's going John Paul? Geo How's it going good man. What's up I'm calling under story gets hilarious because like you said I'm I'm a hundred percent Italian and this guy definitely greasy little people he? He's hard to look at Man I mean and I'm not you know and I like women so I I don't understand what she I mean. She's a obviously a twelve ten and gorgeous. Yeah and I knew she was dating Cliff Kingsbury for a while and then he just completely disappears disappears and I follow her instagram and this meat ball pops up out of nowhere and I think it's just a marketing scheme. I think you're right because one day he's there and then they're hopping around going vegas posting pictures from some island vacation together and then the next thing you know. They're posting videos about how to make money. Yes so they have a laptop and they're like how to get rich why would she do. She doesn't need the money she's made a lot of maybe she does she spend. Yeah maybe she does this. She even working for Fox sports or the golf channel anymore. You know a lot from those two. No I don't know maybe she's made enough to a point but she wants to support a lifestyle that is greater than that and this is the way she's going to do it. Maybe it's the total ploy and thinking about two weeks. You'll ever see him again. I think like I I think you hit the nail on the head. You think she's just trying to make money off of him and you know whatever scam they got going then. It'll be whatever. It was probably favoring that she bought it. macy's right twenty talk to you. Know pull them does a good point. I hadn't thought about that. I thought maybe she was playing him but now I could see them being together trying to play people in a scam and then they said did the. Nobody believes the fact that we're together and we're dating. We're going to have to do something to convince people. Let's do a fake engagement. Never get married but make people believe that Iraq's how would he make her money by yeah exactly and they've only and they've only supposedly been together for like three weeks. That's the best part a AIN'T GONNA get engaged because I would think she could do modeling shoots she could do act. I mean I would think she was gonna be a reason. She's gotTa be a reason. You know maybe the the guy the one thing he's able to do is convince dummies to fork over cash. He's stopped at. That's one thing he's going to be he he can do. So so maybe she's thinking all right that's his skill set. I will jump on this quick cash and then get out of here. That's probably what it is so thanks Paul. I appreciate appreciate you Sean. And some light on that. Chris is in. Staten Island is going on Chris. What's up guys? You remember me my on the guy that and my son Chase Harper. Oh yeah that's right. I remember yeah you called up when Chase Utley was here absolutely yeah. How's it going good man got today? So here's my take. I agree with you I think she that's up in the head If you look at some of the photos on Google she looks like she's had some original and then he looks like a short fat situation from Jersey Short George. I couldn't describe any better. That's exactly what he does. Yeah it's exactly what. He looks like her breast. Implants look very bizarre. Also like in these photos. Yeah they're just like to basketball's that don't move. Yeah you know she shows us. She's very revealing in her costumes. No she is and they look so bizarrely fake. So here's the thing thing like people could sit here and be like. Oh you guys you know you're ripping on these two. Here's the reason why I don't feel bad about it because I think that they're up to something bad. I think that does Vegas Dave. I think he takes advantage manage people. I think he's a slime ball and I think that she is now investing in his slimeball mys. That's what I'd like to know. Why right she had good career going? I think I think she's. She's at a point in her life where she's looking for quick payout and somehow she thinks Vegas Dave is able to do that for. I don't know how so anyway. Very disappointing as someone who used to watch her on the golf channel. All the time very disappointing. I should we take one more here. Because he's going to be done with this after. Nine o'clock Trabzon. Rocky point was going on Travis. What's up guys him in so you follow her instagram have you have you seen? I have not just now looking at it. I do not far so she is the ship. Jerry said she was legitimate contributor to God count. Yeah I think she's the morning drive. Here's a Jessica playing show. She's awesome and she is the shift to like streak instagram personality. Listen how it's like she doesn't have. I realize you can make more money. Can't pick looking for. Why would I thought she had hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars already draws in the sport that you like? There's a guy like I made it much third now the two year college. Yeah Gentlemen and now I ah so. There's a video that came out right when they started dating came out and she talked about I'd never heard of other. Is they come out. And they start told the they're like they're kind of assets out they start talking to them and and like how did you meet. And she couldn't even answer the pressure. How you know like I? I don't I don't really know those clearly staged I mean this is obviously publicity. I've just got a big doesn't I mean right right exactly. No without a doubt one hundred percent travis. I think we're on the same page here. Yeah they just they they are. They're up to something and there will be some people that buy into it the fat again. It's boomer Eh. CBS SPORTS RADIO DOT COM. We will come right back get another CEELO update plenty more your calls. Maybe Vegas Davis listening and wants to fight us. I bet you if we called him up to like have him on the show he would ask to get paid. Probably he'd be one of those those guys. Yeah I'll come on but you know for five hundred dollars a minute. It's the morning show with boomer. esiason and Greg Nadi boomer and Geo you're even know what it is. I know everything about you. Do I've seen the script now. All right so I shared that with you. Yeah but I can't no I don't WanNa know about it. I don't want to know I had a theory on what it was. I'll let you off the air to ask me. I'll tell you right now. It's the theories because you're not gonNa tell me if it is you can't you can't do you never know because he'll never tell you anything ever again again. No no no just here. I'll stay stone faced you ask your question and you won't be able to read a thing off my face. Go ahead ask the question. I think it's some sort of technology technology commercial for like a new phone. That's what I think right now. I'm not going to get the told. You didn't reveal a thing. No which which is why. I shouldn't even bother some I am. I allowed to say that you're wrong now not allowed to say thank you alone. You know you are. Yeah you're wrong. Yeah Oh you know what it is. I Know Eddie Does I. Don't yes I told you told him he did. Yes I walked in. You know what it is now. Well I do. I told Bo these boomer told me actually so now if I reveal it didn't think now you can't reveal reveal it was here one hundred percent. How Remember I? 'cause here's the thing you asked me in my headset. Could you play the cash register thing this is. That's how I know. There's a little behind the scenes to take you behind the curtain. So this is what happened. I mentioned how boomer had a special thing going on Thursday. Wasn't going to be here and Eddie says to me. Do you know what it is and I said yes I do know what it is. You send my headset saying this and you can. I play the cash register that he's going to going to make money because he's a he's going you know save Children than it's not. Yeah no cash register thing. So that's when I said I walked in. I told Yeah you can because it's this you don't remember. I just thought you said it's a commercial but if I told you what was again like if al told you right now you'd be like Oh that's right if you would like to. Do I feel so left out. Yes yes yeah okay so you were there. You're losing it to now JEEZE I. I know what's going on and you didn't know any no nothing. No you're on the air because you're out there working true we're in here. We're messing around with talk doc in the BSN. Chopping it. Up as Stephen Jackson would say. But I've done podcasts with Alan refrain from saying what it what it is. Yeah but he but but he'd let you know that he no. He told me he didn't know a really view. Because I even ran by what I thought it was. And you're like Oh that's that makes sense either. We have been this. Is what a decade of not sleeping dust. All of us know none of us remember a damn thing see like I'm not GonNa lie and say that I don't know I will just honor both things I will tell you the truth. I do know I'm just not allowed to tell you type of thing that's what I would do because now I feel like I'm not lying. Anybody ended a bargain. And I'm also not align you and so we have to hold until Super Bowl Sunday. Well we're not allowed to say he might give us the green light because he's super bowl. Commercials we'll get out. We'll get it it. It gets released. He might he might end up usually released that little trailer of commercial where they give you a couple of seconds from each commercial short leading in. Yeah they end they end up doing on that but there are the only thing I say I'll say now because we have talked about this part of it. There are other recognizable right people. He said that in this in this commercial that we knew yes. I think I gotta be honest with you. Depending on the match up I might be more excited about the boomer commercial than I am about the game just to see him on a super super bowl commercial like that and sadly I don't have any drops that even remotely related do it. Oh to this particular. Why why would you wouldn't? Yeah it makes no sense. Let me check anyway. If you would have had something like that. That would have been like crazy at anything that related into what this is about. Let's go to the Great Lena in Lake Grove morning. Lena our you good morning. Geo Cherry Ceelo Boom mm-hmm if you listening everybody guys yeah. He's not listening. I know I just heard about it in. La I'll be sleeping. He he worked so hard that we're doing is right we are. We're doing great. Lena how are you. I'm doing actually I gotTa tell you guys you know we have spectrum. Yeah Yeah and I don't get the CBS network anymore. I went I would upstairs. I was like Nah. She's like I know hold on. We're GONNA flip out. I'm like I don't get boomer and Geo I'm like I don't care. They just changed it like without even any notice. Did they take off the fighter completely screen green man maybe. Hopefully you don't have to pay more for it but what is work man. You guys guy got guys in the morning. Yeah I don't I mean I got my radio but you know I like to What I like to see you hear a lot of that from people that they like to see? The thing is bullshit listening. It's it's it's radio DOT COM as well. Lena anytime liked. Yeah but I guess I'm accustomed and I'm kind of old school you know. I don't know I mean I've a birthday coming soon. I don't know maybe I'm starting to feel my age but before I get to my two do things that I wanted to talk to you guys about. I just WANNA wish everybody happy and healthy holidays dot bless and You know enjoy the time with your families and all that Alina thank you. Thanks thanks Okay regarding cold listen. I'm excited about it absolutely but you know as boom always says pressure is a privilege now. I have seen players come here and all of a sudden they. They're not up to the standards that they were so this guy being young I mean I mean. I think he's going to handle the the. You know the able to handle a Yankee fans be the media. You know what I'm saying. Yes to all those questions questions. Lena yes I believe so. I don't think he's a guy he I think that he's going to be able to handle all of it. They have to worry. That's great second point G.. Ah this one's to you regarding the Vikings now Monday night they're going up against a pack correct yes all right now Dalvin uncooked suffered a shoulder injury. I if he's an act. Kid Mike Boone is the guy. I don't know if you're planning any fantasy football. But if Alvin Cook does not I play because Alexander. Madison is also an injury. Mike Boone is the guy and to be honest with you. The way that he played once Cook went out of that chargers game. Yeah I'm fine with either one of them. I really believe that the because I got that game I get the The package so I get to see to see a bunch of games and Like what I I did. Notice that too because when he went down I was like wow. That's a big loss. Stop a bit for the Vikings listening to me. Go off of it. Only because it's prince related but So so yes so You know I was just want to get your thoughts on that job. I wouldn't worry I honestly I'm not worried about it. I I also think that they're the problem though and thanks to the Choline is great to hear from you. The problem with the Vikings for those who care about their plight is that even if they win the next two games. It's going to be very difficult for them to win the division because all the packers have to do even if the Vikings beat the packers on Monday night is to beat the Detroit lions lanes in week. Seventeen pretty good about that. And they'll win the division tiebreakers and everything else so there's going to be two teams that have twelve wins or more. That will be the wild cards in the NFC. If the Minnesota Vikings end up winning the last two and they might end up seven five. And they'll be they'll be eleven and five or twelve and four six seed uh-huh just nuts and that's unfortunate for a team that can not really travel outdoors while they did it against the chargers they did. It played better against Seattle tough environment. But I still got a seat in a game that that really really matters. So we'll see. The Vikings are five and a half point favorite in that game. That surprise surprise. You might means packers five points in Minnesota. Yeah no it doesn't not at all and what would it be. What do you think being Green Bay five and a half the other way I mean I think it's that big a difference? The two home fields the way these teams play. Yeah I was. I thought more like honestly those three. I thought it was going to be like the home fury. Yeah yeah that's what I would think. There's so much better at home Minnesota. They haven't the game yeah. Yeah haven't lost a game. They're all right boomer and Geo Jerry in for are a boomer the rest of the morning on the fan. CBS Sports Network. It's the morning show with boomer. esiason and Greg G. Nadi boomer and Geo couple of leftovers I four U from Garrett Bowles Introduction Day at Yankee Stadium actually one more time let's give you sweeney and Susan reacting live on the fan here to the coal pulling out of the eighteen eighteen year old fan signing was photographed holding the two thousand and one series. You're right they're just just continue to sign. Oh my Yankee fan today tomorrow forever. The size of the famous picture from two thousand. Wow this is we just saw with us. This is a special special special man. Hold on swing. It was like yes with special awesome. Realize what can you give us a couple of times now like the time that you just cursed on the. It didn't realize you did that either. That was because I stopped. Whatever it was I was saying? That's why Yeah The Times. I've accidentally cursed on the. I've realized I've done. It didn't even realize you know I didn't right. Did Not boomer had one yesterday. He did yeah he would have. Let's listen to CEELO again pulling out of the eighteen year old eighteen year old. Sign out of the ten year old son. I was just eighteen year old side pulling out of the cheese authorized audio eighteen year old. Sign out at the press conference yesterday. Did you guys get the boomer one yesterday. Me and Al had a look when it happened. Yes we did grow what. I'm trying to think which one it is pretty good to myself yesterday. Yeah Eh one more time any. I got banged pretty good to myself. I was talking about paying a large bill. Yeah Yeah when he was rookie right. I got banged pretty good to myself. That's what I get for making fun of Booger McFarland Orland pulling out of the side. The to put your head in your hands right away. I'm like jeeze because it's one of those things you hear and it just what. What are you saying like Aaron Boone? Earlier saying it gets the juices flowing. Yeah it was definitely were there. There is no worse feeling. Go when you're on the air and something like that happens and you're the person who says it and you know that everybody is looking at each other because of what you did and you don't realize routinely what I what now. Oh there is a sense a lot of times of saying things you don't realize you added a word the word by mistake correct and it changes the complete. Yes you know what you're so it happens and all of them. You just don't realize your said what you said. Yeah right or or you can't you you've already sort of Said and you know you can slots different. That's what you just keep going story Richard near one years ago. I can't even say it on the air so I should've mentioned it okay. They gough the in his voice. Like Oh this is your comes anyway all right so anyway coal asked asked. Why the Yanks why now? Besides the obvious the three hundred and twenty four minutes dream had a second opportunity to chase it. And it's the best organization in my opinion in the league. Expectations are clear now that he's on board. Got A win a ring at least one if not more. Brian came in and said man. We haven't won a championship for ten years. And we really hungry hungry and I said well. I got eight outs away. And I'm just as hungry as you are so I think this is going to be a good married and I was cold with twenty and Susan here on the Fan and Hal. Steinbrenner did emphasize plural as as far as titles go when he spoke with reporters yesterday. How did love the touch with coal bringing the sign it just proves he is who he says he was a true true fan? Lifelong fan a very intelligent. And Guy One of the things that impressed us Right from the get go on the fan as well. Aaron Boone obviously pumped but really fell in love on the Yanks visited coal a few weeks back in California understand what a great pitcher so he is clearly in the prime of his career but I was blown away by the person. was that know that. And now that all the formalities out of the way one final welcome to Garrett and his I look forward to to the ups and downs that I know were inevitably GonNa go through over the next several for years. But I know it's going to be very fruitful as well one day hairballs GONNA come out. Finally Gosh I've been working on this for three years Marco. Balletti was here this morning. He asked me he goes. I never noticed when he used to. Do you know TV Games. Did you ever do that. I'm like I I don't think yeah I guess but it happens in the middle of his sentences though it's just when he's at the podium. Yeah because there's no escape gape. Were the idea that everyone's watching him. He's a little uncomfortable by it. It is a mystery and Cole will wear number forty five you got Luc void switching switching over to Number v Modiano. He gave him cash now. I know that what do you think the now's I said to fifty two hundred and fifty thousand two million three hundred twenty four but he has gotten that first paycheck yet is one of those things money. Yeah I know I'm just trying to figure out these are the things you yeah I think of us. He got his tax. Isn't a first job at pathmark. You both what you were saying. Was He just got three hundred. Twenty four million dollars which he hasn't yet forties made millions of dollars. I don't I don't think it's I don't think it's more than one hundred thousand dollars on that note a story last night on. NBC Sports Bay Area Related By. Is it Kalina as a Buki. Remember that name. Yeah I do. Yeah so he's not the color guy for the warriors and they're playing the blazers last night. Right obviously mellows on the team. I don't know how it came up. But he had number seven at the time mellow was treated than the Knicks. Never even played a game for the Knicks fact. He was waived a week after they traded for mellow so he recounted the story of mellow coming to him for the number and the deal that they had. They're gonNa have to give me something you've got to pay me something right you guys. It's like well you guys just out and figure out the number someone else pay cool so camello comes in there. I see what's up to him on my role. Let me hold something. Come up off that paper April. I know you're paid. Don't work I start to throw out a number. He doesn't let me get it out. Is I got you. Don't worry about it so I'm thinking no what I've seen seen people pay people for tourism numbers fifty one hundred thousand. I'm thinking twenty racks minimum and my boys are and I walk in the next stayed extra three thousand dollars a gram. That was it. I almost walked up to him before the game. I was like take an extra pain. Jersey Melody. Three for number seven with the Knicks that paper. That's amazing the last three years has made twenty five million dollars affordable Schori. I don't think it's going to be more than one hundred thousand dollars all right. I think somewhere between fifty ought not going to be three thousand. No how about this forty five thousand dollars again number uh-huh real quick L. channeling his inner Dave Gentleman yesterday as He was shooting down speculation. Which of course created himself? That how he's looking to leave Cleveland after one year with the brand. I didn't buy a house here to to sell it. Take people said I didn't sign him. The trade them before but I didn't really buy house here took up and leave it and do renovations on a house and build a doghouse. There you go build build a Doghouse to leave Cleveland thing. Yeah I mean come on the same for Jarvis Landry. I mean. That's a guy. Does it really matter you know you leave that house. She told a real estate agent. ESL This thing out of here. Jarvis Landry also come against the NFL reports correct. He said Unless you heard it from me directly don't slander me right. which makes it sound like? He probably said it. But since Mike Silver didn't directly say doesn't want him to report it. I don't know silver was not there. Mike Silva was in Tennessee. Well you heard it from somebody else. Secondhand Dan sources right I source sauce. Tom Coughlin fired by the jags votes. VP of football operations gets the job done. I think he's GonNa sit out a year and then he's going to be seventy five a word was he was gonNA retire or still trying. Where's the guy that wants to work though? I don't think anybody after here green stuff. I don't think anybody's going to hire thing about him. Though that I think would keep him going is Jay Fund. I mean at least that something that would I would think pass a lot of time for him but does he. Oh Okay I see what you're saying that you many has to stay in the NFL. No no no no no I I think he could spend a lotta time running that. Yeah I bet you still wants working. Apparently the Eddie was telling me agent said that he's got a lot of football left in. I believe that so I do believe that. Now so we have a snippet of you okay. Okay with Summers you've found now this was I. Guess what January Vo Eight Thousand and eight eleven years old as the giants are getting ready for the NFC championship pitcher game at Lambofield against the pack. Right we decided to call Tom Coughlin and see if we can get the giants coach with a few minutes. We have left in the program as as Mister coughlan allow. Yes it is. Yeah Steve Somers. WFAN radio we don't WANNA pull Roger. You're the guys on at night on the on the radio. Yes the whole time. Hope you don't mind that we've given you a goal you hope I don't mind no no no mind. Well I Let's hope not prepared for a football game. Well of course it was a joke out of the blue. No well. That's big blue. How about that and oh no no? Don't try to get cute with me. Summers well I want you to know you are on the air with the station. I somers four eight. You GotTa be at the station at least five hours before your program start. Well I'm almost management. Doesn't find you listen. We haven't got a lot of time Tom that we do appreciate appreciate you spending a couple of minutes with us here. How are you preparing for the cold on Sunday? Listen when you set up a set time for me. I'll be very accommodating to you. You called me out of the blow out of nowhere here. You're put me on you expect to be Mr Nice Guy. NFC Championship going listening. We WanNA thank you for a couple of minutes. It's in wish you luck on Sunday. Grow you F- about sums it up a middle part there. I said my grandfather was a fish or or something you know. That's why how I prepared for the cold like it was a salmon swam in Alaska. Something ridiculous and people still believe that was true for an hour. We and our people said Tom Call. I don't like the way he treated you. I don't think he's GonNa be prepared for this game now. You know. This is the jerk that I don't want to be my new coach. And then they won the Super Bowl. Screw you thunder. beat the grizzlies last night. One Twenty Six one twenty three and they were dressed the part art. Thanks to Chris. Paul who provided custom suits for each of his teammates. A preseason gift that had finally arrived this week bit of a struggle for Stephen Adams though and I give you some of the highlights of the quotes he gave move to the media afterwards. I wish we had the audio. But he said getting dressed up kind of screwed him up. He didn't realize how much time it takes to put on all that blank. It's a lot longer then. I'm used to a lot of buttons at a lot of weird things. He said he hasn't worn pants other than sweatpants. Like legit pants jeans or suit since draft night. That's what he's ever. Yeah and then he was like Whoa wait. I went to Russell Westbrook's Oklahoma Hall of fame introduction and I did wear suits pants that night but nothing sense. Marc Malusis borden Gordon regular paint. Since his wedding night yeah pretty much and I guess he broke out so they had pictures of all these guys. Walking in last night's he's got the suit on and then he's got this old school like the hats Bruce Arians whereas I don't know what those are called with the Capitol. Yeah right so we had that on and he said he's been watching a lot of peaky blinders on Netflix recently. So he went out and bought that hat go with the suit so he goes. There's any comments about the hat. I want them all to go to me. And then lastly when they said they asked him the next time damn setup for clip no no. It's not for the I I told you. There's no audio normal last night. I have a clip from the other night. But when they asked him the next time he sees himself wearing a suit he said probably my funeral mate. We go now two nights ago seriously folks two nights ago. That's right John Ruth continues. Yeah we're make oh he would have been out of your. Yeah I mean. They'd beat the Bulls He. It's a lead free throw to put them ahead for good. He's like a fifty percent career. Free throw shooter. So this was the on-court interview afterwards words on Fox Sports Oklahoma. How did this feel free? Throw shootings been such a key for you this season. How do you feel the hit? That one and then make the heads up play after absolutely That's pretty tough. Realize how much pressure it is. I Bet I'm happy with that. You guys do not care that. They're on live television. They don't care all right that brings us the moment of the day and it is brought to you buy Resorts World Casino in Queens with over sixty five hundred games this is how NYC roles. We're talking about this kettle house in Texas. That was all about but long story short since I'm apparently long winded. Whatever they did there apparently took a lot of work ever at intelligence too overwhelming for Gio so we get one more life lesson from Tom? Call I can't I because I don't have the patience. I don't have to build a frigging kettle. No no they they bought it and they flipped flipped it and fixed it. I'm not good at that stuff. I'm just not and I don't have the capacity you were they learn. I wish I learned how to do things like this because I think this is awesome. That is I mean you look at that. It's a big silver ball. Basically right by the beach and they turned it into this. You can actually rent this thing. Yes he I don't At this point in my life it's a it's an impossibility to learn how to do something like that yes. It is to learn to be good at building in houses. Yes it is. It's GONNA stop learning. You might as well be dead. Thank you tom there. You go step right. Yeah of course boomer and Geo oh on eighteen sign fan sign Eddie. It's eighteen years old and he pulled. That will forever. Of course all right no such thing as bad publicity right now usually.

Yanks Gets Their Man - Land Geritt Cole, But Lose Didi To The Phillies

"Live from the Investors Bank studio Bura size in Gregg Giannotti boomer and on the fan simulcasts across the country on CBS CBS. Sports Network. Good Wednesday morning. Eight happened right around midnight eastern time Brian Cashman got his as man the elusive Garrett Cole who he's been chasing down since he was in high school drafted him of course didn't sign with the Yankees went to college got drafted grabbed by the pirates after that tried to trade for him. Didn't work out Astros got him. Well Garrett Cole got the money from the Yankees. He is now in in stripes. Nine Years Three hundred twenty four million. He would not be denied. Brian Cashman was is not going into twenty twenty without Garrett. Kohl's all the Yankee fans out there who've been complaining the last couple of years at the Yankees have not been the Yankees and they haven't haven't gone the extra mile while you went the extra mile this time and you got what could be one of the top three. I believe one of the top three pitchers in all of baseball. Good morning boomer homer our you know what I'm doing great not as good as Garrett Cole though and I will say a Yankee Fan you do have a little coal in your stocking for for Christmas time here in the holidays holidays. And all that other stuff. So congratulations to you and to Brian Cashman for spending other people's money that's great three hundred twenty four million dollars thirty six million dollars dollars a year. I don't care it's their money. Who Cares right and I would say that Major League Baseball Players Association should be very happy with this off season as these contractors attractions continue to grow and grow and grow? And it's kind of interesting because when you compare it to what Jacob degrom has done over the last two years and you look at how much money he's making. What a bargain? The matab with their two time cy young award winner Self Eighty Yankees now. They're still gotTA do some more movement around here. They're trying to to get rid of Jay Half now. He's got a seventeen million dollar contract coming this week. And then of course you lose Didi Gregorius to the Phil. Yeah that's part of yesterday. Yesterday was big. News de Gregori is one year deal fourteen million dollars to go be with Joe Girardi in Philadelphia. And I think he's going to have a great ear for them. I mean this is a guy that clearly the Yankees are ready to move on from and you were on that you know before anybody really talk about at the end of last year. I remember asking John John Flaherty during the playoffs. All the playoffs were going on. You think dede is GonNa come back and and he's not he's not coming back in. The Yankees had decided to move on. Labor tour is going to be there shortstop. Dj Gentleman who's going to be their second baseman. We'll see how first base shakes out. And you gotta Shell and do our overhead at third base but his guys a clubhouse leader and he did one of the most host impressive things that we've seen in Yankee pinstripes over the last decade or saul which was replaced Derek. JETER and be a guy that people weren't comparing him to okay is amazing what he did when you think about what. He accomplishes the Yankee baseball players. So I I don't know I'm going to miss him. I think he's a terrific player. The terrific leader like you said. He reunites with Geordie. Where of course in Philadelphia? Which means that you know another to me anyway in the eyes of many other A.? Ah I only watch. Excuse me I would say that now the Phillies the brazen the nationals are significantly. Better than mets. Yeah on paper. Sure mets nothing it looks like the nationals are gonNA lose ren don't be surprised ended up signing back there. Yeah I mean they the. It's a very very tough division for sure we I mean the phillies have made a lot of moves that I wanted to make the last couple of years and this. I know that you know getting D.. Gregoire's is not something that was on on their radar. But I've agreed with a lot of the phillies moves. Didn't work out from last year ended up being a fourth place team but you know so far adding Joe girardi adding DD gregorious. This year has been very very impressive. Adding Zack Wheeler of course very very impressive This off season. Basically what it comes down to you. You're replacing placing right now. When you move Jay Hab j happened Didi Gregorius with care? Coal is really what you're doing. Yeah I I don't turnover money in terms of money right. Yeah in terms of money. Sure but I don't know if DD ROSE IS GONNA be here anyway. It didn't see Garrett Cole was a Yankee or not. I'm not sure if the Yankees he's had to do what they're doing simply because you can't pay everybody and tours shortstop that's what he is. He's a cheaper shortstop he's it. It has more control years. I mean these are all things that you have to take into account when you're building your roster at the level that the Yankees seemed to be building it out now you know it's all about moving money around and who do you WANNA pay wall. Tell you what so Garrett Cole turned twenty nine in September. He'll be here until he's thirty eight. I believe yeah nine years right so you know he started. I think thirty thirty five games or now thirty two or thirty three games the last two years so the Astros I I mean. It's a lot of pressure man. This is like he is coming in and this this is not you know. This is where fans engage. This is where like Pat Shurmur finding finding out you know as any as any managers Mickey callaway found out. I mean fans are gauge. Every single time you're on the on the field and for the case of a Pitcher pitcher this a lot of money and this is a million dollars to start or a little bit more than a million dollars to start per year. What this is sure? I've I think if you're going to give that that type of money to a guy. He is the person that he Right yeah performance wise attitude wise makeup wise. I mean I think you know everything about the the guy to meet screams. This is why he pushed all the chips in the middle of the table. You know some of these other guys last couple years whether it was corbin or wherever you're passing on you say now not this guy not this time not bryce supernet Manny Machado. Even though those guys position players know this is this is the one you know and Brian Cashman had mentioned Garrett Cole has been his white whale for a long time and as always wanted him on the team you know it's not just because of his performance it's because of his makeup and you're like Andy Pettitte getting through to him is another reason why I love to hear the bathroom getting through to him. It's not just he was going to take the best deal. We know that but I also think that the whole Yankee Championship thing in the guys like Andy Pettitte about making an impact on them. I mean if you're a Yankee fan you'll love to hear it you'll love everything about it and I don't know if this is going to hamstring them in the future of making other free agent splashes and and worrying about signing your own guys and you got Giancarlo Stanton making three hundred million Garrick Omega three hundred million but this there's something that they could not be outbid by the dodgers or angels. This was their off-season to get the big fish and they got him and we had been screaming. The last couple years about the one thing that Brian Cashman hasn't been able to do in recent memory in recent memory and talking about the last four or five six years is get that's starting pitcher either in a traitor and free agency to put them over the top and I believe that last night or early this morning about six hours ago. He just did that you you well you're GONNA have arbitration signings to you're GonNa have Paxton's going to get a new contract judge Sanchez keenly or shallow. All those guys are arbitration eligible. And they're all going to get new contracts. They're also going to be bumped up. I don't know how significantly but I I would say you know it's six significant money when you add up all the players and now you add this thirty six million dollars a year a million dollars start essentially what it comes down to and so you add that to Stanton who's got a twenty six million million dollar adjusted salary. Twenty three million for Tanaka Chapman. Seventeen million two hundred grand and then J. happens at seventeen million. So that's why they're you're trying to move Jay hop he's got the they gotta get him Outta here and is seventeen million dollars in a look. You know this is what it is. It's all about moving the pieces around the board but what you do have without question. You have one of the top. Three starting pitchers in major league baseball that every time he takes the ball If you're in the midst of a losing streak or you WanNa start a winning streak or whatever you however you want to look at it you have that person you have that attitude on the mound for you as the New York thank you. You know you're opening day starter as you know your game one starter. Is You know your game seven. Starters I mean that's that's something that they'd been missing. I mean some of this stuff that the Yankees dealt with with the last couple of years especially last postseason with a bullpen game. Here in Chad. Greens GonNa Start there and how the hell is happening when you're the New York Yankees no not anymore or he's just going to have to shave. That's all yeah. Well that's that's the one thing but he's not. He hasn't always had a beard. I've seen him clean shaven before Dolly. He's always had the beard but I mean He. You saw how intense this guy is in that run. Then he went on last year. I mean this isn't this isn't some Fluke Garrett Cole was as good as he was the last couple years especially actually last year. I mean how he didn't win the CY young. I know that Justin verlander during the regular season was slightly better. But I mean towards the end. You'd rather favor later than coal in the postseason because call was dominant ticked off. He was in game seven. He didn't get in right because he wanted the ring. And I think that When you sit down and you take a look at the Yankees and everybody and the other opportunities for you or for him you can say to yourself okay number one best contract good great number two best bullpen? Good Great. That means they're going to get some win number number three a winning pedigree and somebody who is expecting to win right now check number three right. I mean all these boxes that I would think you would want as Garrett Cole have all been answered by the New York Yankees and I would imagine what when the Yankees were interviewing him. And according to Brian Cashman this interview went on and on and on and on you would get the sense. You'd be able to tell whether or not his personality is going to Mesh with what you're doing here with your with your team. So and I think they got the guy they got the guy. Hi Now. This is what we've been screaming about for five years. Go get this guy. Yup and they finally have their guy the rotation the guy that's GonNa take that ball every day and is going to give you a chance to win every single game. He's on the mound was so hopefully things work out for him. Good for him. Getting the money for the players. I gotta believe the players are happy. Oh you think about a two guys in two days two hundred and forty five million dollar deal and a three hundred twenty four million dollar deal last year two guys making Megan over three hundred million in the totality their contracts and Harper and Machado. Two guys that were in their twenty s soon as they hit free agency you you would think that some of this collusion Asian stocks did we had been hearing is now out the window now. I know there's still some veteran players that you don't get as much of a fair shake as maybe they did ten years ago but that's because as the game is going in a certain direction and there's no longer long-term commitments to position players over thirty years old that are on the decline statistically an analytically but that's just a different story. That's just what you're worth. But as far as the general managers getting together and say we're not going to Dole out big contracts which you heard from players and members of the Players Association bullcrap bullcrap. We've got four contracts here in more than that because you had also guys like Mike Trout and no-one aeronautique that stayed with their teams. That didn't even hit free agency. They ended up getting an exorbitant amount of money. I mean the players have to be absolutely thrilled with number. Trout's four four hundred twenty six and a half million in Harper's three hundred and thirty million stands three hundred and twenty five million Garrett Cole. Three hundred twenty four billion and Machado of course with San Diego at three hundred million. That's let's Yankees. Got Two out of those five out of those five right now. You know what that means. It's either you win a championship or you get fired. Cowards over over or somebody's getting fired. I would think that you know the pressure now in the expectations now because of adding a guy like this is our about a significant as they've ever been for the Yankees. Yeah Yeah that's fair. I mean they always have pressure but now when they go out and do this it does ratchet up. I believe that to be the case too but I also think they got they got the right guy by James Paxson. We didn't know we heard thing though. He's he's from Canada he's big maple doesn't matter showed us up in the second half of the season. Aw Come Awhile to get there that last start. He made a Yankee Stadium and elimination game. The Guy was awesome. So that was good to see but Garrett Cole you don't have to worry about them I'm not saying he's going to be perfect but as far as makeup and if he can pitch a New York and if you can pitch in the postseason lock you can't see this crumbling in a big spot. We just watched him in the post. That happening either. I just say that you know he knows what he's getting into. His sister lives here right. So that's good. And he was a Yankee fan growing up. Maybe that's something to do with it. Who knows but look what the New York man? Yeah no I know I look at it and good for them and good for him. Yeah I mean he is he is someone to with it like. It's really easy to root for them because him standing on the mound that intensity that he has you know walking off the mound after a strikeout like he's that guy like when he's yours these on your team like a Roger Clemens attitude yes absolutely. I agree with that I had he. I mean this was this was about as is good of a morning. Wake up or last night. If you were up I mean I I thought something bad happened when I rolled over at two. Am and check my phone. And I had three or four more Yankee fan text in the middle of the night. They didn't even care that I was sleeping with Woohoo this and check this out. How great this and everything else I mean this was? There's about a good as a gift as as you could possibly get if you're a Yankee Fan and you do if anybody calls up today complaining about the money and you're in there Yankee Fan you know who cares knots. Money money they have they can spend it. Yeah of course and it's not like they're like overspending for the entire team because they obviously are going to get rid of half the all the already lost. Awesome Didi Gregorius. They're going to have came off the book right. CC came off the books. So they're going to have to pay some of these other guys and they're going to have to give a thing somewhat of a significant -nificant raise to Brett Gardner. Yeah and Andy. Martino tweeted out just a few minutes ago. That expect the Gardner signing to happen soon. Now today you'll the probably hear whatever that's going to. Because they need them. They absolutely need them and they also need for couple more reasons other than the fact that Aaron Hicks is not healthy. Is That de Gregori. who where's where's the lefties right now now the DVD's in Philadelphia? Where are the lefties? So Mike Ford. I mean that's what we're talking about. Yes yeah that's what you're talking about. I mean those are the kinds of the left the lineup Brett Gardner and Mike Ford I would take I would. I would end up taking a look at that if the Yankees. I'm sure he's looking at that in. Probably some other outfield outfield depth position. Try to find the left ear. Something who knows I mean this is. It's interesting they got the guy that they wanted to get they're going to have to maneuver a few other contracts around they're gonNA have to pay a few guys in arbitration and be interesting to see where this number ends up pat. Yeah it's going to be interesting to see whether or not they give any of these younger players a maybe a deal by the arbitration years like we saw with Hicks in Severino nine years. Three hundred twenty four million Alien Dollars Garrett Cole is a New York me ask you this. Who is who is your number two starter for the Yankees coming back at the beginning of the year? Do you think it's Tanaka. Do you think it's how do you think it's Paxton or do you get Severino. That's pretty good lineup. If you WANNA go coal Paxton lefty FDA. And then go to Tanaka third. I mean I don't know it'd be some sort of combination of that but yet here's the question. What's interesting about your question is there's no debate anymore about who your number one guy? That's all right. We we do know number one is.

The Rich Eisen show is just trying to connect dots for you trying to do to. She's trying to connect dots and make make sense At richeisenshow is tweet with us. Eight four four zero four rich number to dial my buddies Brockman and del Tufo or originally I doing over there. Kristie doing right away. nope fitted you. Weren't that great twitter meltdown. Last night in case was following me at Chris Brockman doing at this morning so only fired off one mean tweets. Just one question did any trade go down in last twenty four hours. They all went down. I know right mostly so these these all teams in the last twenty four hours. We're involved of the no-trade dodgers Red Sox. Twins Angels in Major League Baseball Rockets Hawks Timber Wolves Nuggets in the in the association. Those are all teams that all had fan base go. What what what what? What and there's no fan base? That was more like that than Chris. Brockman Boston Red Sox twenty-seven-year-old Mukhi bats one of the best players. Major League baseball free agent after this season is in Los Angeles a one year rental that we are all assuming in Los Angeles will not be one year rental that they're just gonNA keep him around but didn't we think that about Manny Machado. Right yeah okay totally. Which is why the dodgers didn't have to give too much up to get mookie betts and the big fat remaining contract David Price thirty four year old? Who's owed ninety six million dollars over? The next three is not even gonNA pay half of that. You got cash from Boston. What a joke and the Red Sox four all that get Alex Verdoux go from the dodgers twenty three year old outfielder? She put him in the spot and good luck to Alex with everybody in Boston. Saying whereas mookie going how come my team it's got all the money in the world. Is it gonNA pay for Mookie. Betts and Alex for Dugo. Good luck to you sir in you having as many RBI's and as many putouts in his many moments that bats was able to provide the red sox. He's got a lot of pressure on his shoulders. And then Bruce Star you're right hand. Pitcher guy apparently throws ninety million miles an hour. Bruised are greater all by the way. I think that's what you took to make sure that you could keep it all down. Oh you took a little bit of red sox nation just taking a big dose of greater all just to take it I mean I think if the Chug your greater all to make sure that all that indigestion Christian goes away cameo was sent from the dodgers two twins who is the ones that sent greater all the red sox's at three teen deal. Now let me tell you why the Red Sox in my mind did this before Jeff Passan of ESPN comes along and says it right. So there's the luxury tax in Major League baseball that makes the tries to level the playing field doesn't doesn't allow teams to just collect as many big name players without without if you get over certain threshold and Major League Baseball. It's like two hundred million dollars and a payroll. If you get over that then you have to pay money into a pool that gets split amongst the lower revenue teams and then if you're over the threshold over a certain period of time then it gets to be even worse and teams are trying to get under those fresh holds and the Yankees actually did that allowing them to own cash in for Garrett Cole and I told this to you Christopher I told this to you and I know I mean I knew any better red sox thought that Mookie Betts wasn't common back they weren't gonna be able to keep him and you know these youngsters that they get have a greater value if you will draft choices that are being coming to them if they lose bets as a free agent and they cleared about fifty million bucks in payroll flexibility for moving forward so long term and they're underneath this this threshold. There were kind of if you will hitting the reset button. I know Henry strapped for cal. I understand Dan that I understand that. You just say you know. These are rich billionaires in our buddy. Tom Werner's enrich billionaires. You just pay it and you have a top three player on on your roster under the age of Twenty eight under thirty a guy who's already wanted championship and MVP and proven he's one of the best players. There's you've ever had in your organization so let me throw this to you. Do you think the way you're feeling right now is the way nationals fans. Felt this very point. Last year Harper had gone. Louis not I know you think that Har Bets is a better player than Harper. and He's already one I I understand that but I'm doesn't have an didn't have an injury history I'm saying to you the nationals. Let their best player go. They let their best player going. I know you I know that you you might be sitting using his apples and oranges. Because you don't have sure or her or Strasbourg walking through that bullpen. Door to start again. Definitely okay so I get that sale has just as good but nationals nationals fans. Were like okay. So you're not spending all his money on on on on Harper you let him go let me go division. What the hell are you doing? They won on world series. I'm I I'M NOT SAYING YOU'RE RED SOX. Winning the world series. Trust me Yankee fans today are thinking all right Astros Kinda blown up up a little bit here. Red Sox have were as weight raised a white flag on the season Total Yankees get Garrett Cole which kind of led to the dodgers. You're saying we gotta do something and all of this being brought about. It's not as dark as you think it is. No it definitely definitely is you've got you laid it out You know creating flexibility when the wrong long term long term. If mookie betts that is a really hard sell to fans today how do how many games did you finish behind the Yankees last year. A million right along it was sitting there in right. Field during the entire season still had a great season. I got it. So you're looking over the landscape you again remove your. I told her I understand. If you're a badly looking at this this is gone. I know I don't understand. This move happened because you fired. The Guy who gave long-term deals to evolve the end Chris Sale and traded for David Price. Maybe you don't win the world series without David Price. Maybe you do. That team was loaded loaded anyway. But you gave those outrageous contract and now you don't get to keep your once in a fifty year player. What if you asked your once in a fifty a year player? Hey when when when everybody's thinking Harper's gone go to him and you say how about we set the market now three hundred some odd million bucks nieces. No what do you do and you're sitting there. You're wondering we'RE GONNA lose this guy where you call them in the office. You look them in the face. And and you say I'll I'm I WANNA give this. I'm going to give you the contract. That basically the that Harper's GonNa get and this is before trout got his four hundred million. I understand that you you think you're this good and you don't want to set them and you WANNA set the mark and I am the ultimate believer and you gotta bet on Yourself. That's why I'm sitting in this chair and that's why personally I mean just not not to talk about the businesses Joe. That's why in ten showing on much longer than just this month. Firmer than those. What's going on with the show? I'm betting on myself. That's why I'm on the the NFL network. That's where I'm sitting here so I don't blame. mookie Betts for doing whatever he might have been doing. I don't either I gotta get yours. He's now out here in Los Angeles as we all know. The dodgers have money have commit underneath their seat cushions in their my box. Okay but it's all there so but if you're Boston you make him an offer he can't can't refuse to simple as that. Do you want your number up in the rafters. Do you want more better. Do you WANNA statue on lansdowne down. Yes yes yes. Here's the check fill in the number. I'm one day and You know what I'm saying. At some point the Yankees are going to have to make a decision on like the judge Sanchez glaze tours. One of like the can't pay them all certainly with stanton making a absurd amount of money and Kohl's making all of this money no matter how much money the Yankees make sitting there. Also Jerry Jones in that business that puts everyone should look up that the Yankees are in business in Jerry Jones and how much money they probably all make together putting names on stadiums and selling. PSL's all of that at some point. You can't pay them all and in a couple years. There's going to be a new collective bargaining agreement in major league baseball that might raise the luxury tax threshold like the a high market teams. Might Win this thing and be able to pay some of these guys a little bit more without having to put money in the Kitty and make sure teams that are sitting in the bottom third of major league baseball all who aren't nearly as competitive as they need to be they just sit back and make their money. Yankees may have this issue too. I'm just saying it is not nearly as cut and dried as like like. Let's pick Mortis Buki. WanNa be there anymore but honestly to want to be there anymore. Maybe I hear him say that. We haven't heard anything from them Having while he loves L. A.. And by the way I know we're on angels radio I apologize greatly to my my angels fans out there Jock Petersen showing up angels reason no reason why the nationals able to win that world series as we all know as ren dome had had an amazing season you know if they can stay healthy. Yeah they're loaded they they you have a nice lineup and Otani. By the way we're never going to see him pitching and hitting the game right where it's never going to happen right. He should should only. I don't even hit Joe Madden's now the one pushing the buttons Madden's already said Otani pitching All right man. Let's see it's dangerous. I mean hey just like the clippers. The Lakers are the center of the basketball world. Even with the rockets acquiring Robert Covington and send in Clint Capella to the hawks. How do you think he feels today? He just he just lost himself a lot of winds and he signed that five year. Ninety Million Dollar Contract July twenty eighteen to baby right right now. He's on the hawks. I WANNA commit to the rockets on your own hawks in about About a year and a half Angels have a pretty Nice team to man sitting sitting out here in the American League West and just like I said you got the dodgers you got the angels out here for Major League Baseball. You got the the clippers the Lakers the the only difference is there's a New York team in Major League Baseball unlike the NBA is raising their hand. And saying right now and I didn't WanNa make any of this about the Yankees but in the American League East. They won that thing. Well over the red sox no longer have pets. But I'm not I'm not. I'm not going to buy this. I understand you would be totally having your heart ripped out Chris I get it I totally understand. Not even that it's just it's just it's more disappointing in in ownership. That's all it is. But what if what if I told you right now that it does set up with a new a new. GM WHO's going to hire a new manager. You hit a little bit of a reset button that you need prices contract even if you eat half of it you're still you're still off of half of it bets. Is Somebody that you you just. Maybe you look around. You say I don't know if he's worth but the idea of hundred million in dollars but the idea and the concept of having to swallow a reset after two years from winning one hundred naked games and dominating the playoffs that is really difficult for the fan base to take today. I'm not blaming you. I'm just saying that when the Yankees play the Red Sox next year I'm not sitting here and taken. It's a total total steamroll job. Because you still have. I mean we'll see you know manager. The truck left for Fort Myers. There's no no one in charge. I think they're once common and one's obviously one is going to have to come once common. And now it's it's it's a you're hitting the reset button in a manner that you're not used to having it reset and I'm as a Yankee Fan among the. Oh yeah this is going to be a total absolute steamroll aimal job when you got Benintendi Gop Bogart's you got us there. Sure okay our AAA by. He might hit thirty home Russia. Yeah but you don't hit a reset two years after the greatest season and one hundred years nationals lead Harper don't do nationals Harper walking when the World Series heartbreak brain.

Welcome back to the rich Eisen Show Jeff Passan of ESPN join US shortly. And then now we We turn to the dodgers point of Langer near Los Angeles dodgers. How many times have we seen in the past few postseasons? The dodgers come up short. I'll give you an answer three. How many times? How many times have we in the dodgers coming up short? Have we seen somebody other other than Justin Turner coming up with a big hit tough to think about it and stuff now are red bearded friend. As as we all know. Every single time he steps the players like an on base percentage a Garrett Ruthie in on base percentage in terms of his postseason career. But I mean we're you're you're just waiting. The dodgers man. I'm I in second to out second and third two outs after. Like a first and second situation where there's a strikeout and then of groundout moves them over. They are just in desperate need of that too outer the base it to turn a one run inning into that crooked number that gives the room for Kershaw gives Kershaw the necessary Run support in a spot. Where maybe the opponent isn't learning the pitches that are coming from him but but altogether altogether? mookie betts is exactly what the doctor ordered for this. Lana exactly exactly no doubt about that. I mean exactly what. The dodgers need in October which they were GonNa make with pets or without there. Are that good David. Price come out with the frame mill. Con- who's WHO's then I know all this is in response to not getting Garrett Cole but if you ask dodger fans on the old sodium Pentothal which one would you rather have just leave the coal. Yeah Yeah Yeah you can have coal. You'RE GONNA use to which one you take you. GotTa Mookie Betts and David Price You're GonNa Garrett Cole the guy that plays every day yeah agape gape guy plays every day but in the postseason a guy that you know is going to hang to if not maybe three ws on the wall and a seven game series stories because all you need all you need all you need. Is the offense like I just gave you the scrape out those two three runs. That's Ed right right. I mean it's not like Betts GonNa go three for four every game in the playoffs. Usually the pitching is. What gets you through an October momentum? Talent you the Sox have that two thousand eighteen ring because of David. Bryce I get a Jalan you telling you that that's exactly what what the doctor ordered for the offense but the question is can the dodgers get. I mean Bueller. Can he take a step forward Who Else Kershaw can he finally at his moment? You know what I mean. How many people have gotten their moments in the last few years to write? I like Ovechkin God's moment Cubs got their moment. Lebron got his moment with Cleveland. Right Andy reaches got his moment. It's Kershaw's turn I mean he's he's exactly that guy in baseball right now best to not win the big one. They just showed Paul Rudd on a golf cart at the Perez. Doing it is by the way hacked a sea of Red Kansas. The city looks good for them. Eight four four two zero four rich number. Dial we'll take your call but let's get the Honda insider report right now from a man who was right all over this story last night from. ESPN THEIR MLB insider. Jeff Passan back here in the rich Eisen show. Hey Doing Jeff. I'm supposed to be in Kansas Kansas City at a parade ray. This your team to write the team to right there. My kids team. Yeah it's it's like I'm I'm that guy who as he got older not because of my job right but because I just don't like stress had had not rooting for sins is a superior options rooting for teams. Okay part of that is the fact that I part of that is the fact that I grew up in Cleveland and so I never had anything. Nice now Boy But but it but in the end like I kinda enjoy sports more because it doesn't break my heart all right jeff. Well then speaking speaking of heartbreak and stress Why did this have to happen in Boston? Why why did why did why? mookie betts have to be sent away. Jeff in your estimation it didn't it did not have to happen. The reason that it did happen is because the red sox feel like they have a better chance of contending intending over the next five years if they hit the reset button now and that they were going to be hemmed in by their bad decisions of the past and at those bad decisions we're going to preclude them from succeeding. And I think that's like I listen. Is that the right choice. Is that the fair thing. Introduce the message you want to send to your fan base. No probably not But the fact is if they believe the clearer path to contention into longterm success is by having some pain right now. I think that's something that's four championships in fifteen years. Here's pies you the right to do now by the right to do with a player. Like mookie Betts. WHO's probably the Best Boston? Red Sox and said Williams That's A. That's a tougher one to argue. Well that's a that's you you know. You just threw out their best Boston. Red Sox and Ted Williams really. Who's WHO's better her car? mookie Betts mookie. Betts is a better player than Carl. Yastrzemski mookie Betts is a better player than David Ortiz than many Ramirez. I mean we're talking about a guy who over the first. You know five plus six years now of his career is in the top ten all time in wins above replacement. I'm not trying to be nerdy and I'm I'm not trying to be wonky. This is a this is a metric though that's used to measure generation like. That's the whole point of it that you can that you can measure players there's across generations and Mookie Betts the guy with an MVP guy with Elite elite numbers every year. WHO does not have a weakness and I mean it does not have a weakness? He's a guy who had high strikeout are doesn't strike out. He's the guy who walks. He's a guy who steals basis. It extraordinarily good quit. He hits for average rich. He hits for power. There is no better defensive right fielder than him. He is the total package and so Yeah I think he is better than the hall of famers that the Red Sox have had and I think he's clearly on the path to the hall of fame themselves so I I will then say this asked this question next to you jeff. Passan that normally when this happens in any sport and it's difficult to comprehend or understand The player perhaps might not WanNa be where the team wanted him to be so they sent him away or couldn't run the risk or etc and so forth. Is that an undercurrent in here that that was going on. I think mookie Betts wants to be a free agent and you know what I don't blame him for that. I don't blamed somebody who goes into a system where for seven years His employer is Whoever you know drafts him or whoever has emerged trades for you? Don't have any choice in the matter. And if you believe in yourself like he does and you believe that you're go out there and have a typical standard. mookie Betts type season. He's looking at rich at a minimum of three hundred fifty million dollars in a contract attract. That could well be in excess of four hundred million dollars and if the red sox are not going to offer that right now and incentivize him to to lose that choice. That choice is worth a lot of money to a player the ability to say this is in whom I believe. This is where I want to live. This is the organization that I wanNA tether myself to If you're not gonNA overspend for that choice you're not going to get the player so then explain this luxury tax in all this too because you know how this works and whether the doctors offers are are are are throwing caution the wind and and because that's clearly what's at play here to Jeff can exciting no question about it. So so here's the luxury tax threshold. This year is two hundred eight million dollars over the last two seasons. The Red Sox have been in excess of it. The more times you're over the threshold sold the harsher penalties for being so get and this is not just a money thing it's also has to do with draft picks and potentially international signing money that being said rich the luxury tax threshold should not be the driving force for trading a franchise player and if it is and if the red sox publicly come out and say that it was then they are spinning and that is something thing that is sports fashion. I believe is it part of the package. Yes absolutely was the greater driving force. The fear that Mookie Betts was going to leave after two thousand in twenty season in which the red sox finished third behind the New York Yankees and the Tampa Bay rays and that the best they were GonNa get for him was a fourth round draft. Pick yes ask that that was the driving force of this and you know what I get it I get it. Because they're gonNA have a right fielder announcer do go. Who's going to be there? Five years he's going to have a guy in Bruce Star who long as his shoulder holds up is either going to be a really good starter at worst. They're closer so You know there are. There is from the value perspective. If you're looking at this strictly in a vacuum the red sox came out looking like bandits you know the future value place on Alex Redo go is seventy million dollars. Non Grata role is forty or fifty million dollars. If we're again getting very nerdy out on this and Mookie Betts is value has an average year. This year surplus is is going to be about seventy million dollars and they shed David prices contract so I I in a vacuum. This actually is a good and productive deal for the Boston Red Sox. It just doesn't feel that way and I completely understand why well part of the reason why to Jeff Passan of ESPN peon. Honda insider report. Is that Usually when you trade a player like this you see three or four names if somebody's either in their their their late teens or really early twenties and I. I know you mentioned gradual. By the way it would have been much better if it was pronounced the way I did at the top of the show greater all because that does sound like what red sox taken to get rid of their injured indigestion today normally normally you see a whole host of prospects is the reason why we don't see that because Beth as a walker and the dodgers were using that to their advantage to hold onto some of their prospects jeff a hundred percent y when you trade a guy with just just one year to go. I mean you've you know you've lost a playoff run that you could have gotten last year if you had decided to deal with and we're GONNA see that this year potentially actually was Franscisco Linda for or with Kris Bryant. You know two guys who have two years before they hit free agency if they're teams want to cash in as best as possible. They will wait until July thirty first. And we'll trade him this year now. It's possible that the cubs contending and that they're not going to trade it and that's reasonable. It's possible that the needs contending and they're not gonNA Trade Lynn door and again that's okay you know you can explore doing it in the off season potentially but if you really want to get the most out of a guy who's getting near free agency trading him with to play off runs left is the best way to leverage it. So let's talk about the Los Angeles teams then The few minutes we have left here. Jeff dodgers got to feel great about their lineup. What about their their pitching staff? I guess they feel like they got a veteran in price who did have a tremendous playoff run when the red sox wanted all last time What do you think about the dodgers chances here? Now I I mean David Price is the David price of stuff is down no question about it you know. He's not the same country wants was. He's in his mid thirties. Now and it's going to be interesting to see how much he can adjust to diminish stuff which still for left-hander is actually pretty good. You know average fastball around ninety two miles per hour which he was the hardest throwing lefty in baseball for like half a decade. It's so you know ninety two's nothing to sneeze at but The the big question with the dodgers Pitcher Garrett Cole this off season rich like they were willing to go to three hundred million dollars for him. The Yankees were just willing to much higher and he wanted to go play in New York and so I I don't think there's a problem having Walker Bueller pitch opening day. The Guy who's going to be insane contention this year I don't think there's a problem having Clayton Kershaw as your number two starter but going to be interesting to see how he just As well to diminish velocity and and You know they have. Alex would coming off. An injury They could go With who you were reassigned or Dustin may at the back end of their rotation like they've got depth there and Their bullpen again. Another question mark but they've got young arms and they've got prospects who if they really need to they they can go trade to fortify their pitching staff come July and this is all about this all about October for them rich. You know April through September number for the dodgers is is going to be a question not of will they win the National League West but of how many games will they way is. Is this a team that after one hundred six win season adding a guy who's arguably the second best player in baseball when hundred ten hundred fifteen even even more potentially. I don't think that's out of the rally possibility. I think I think the floor I think unless there are just catastrophic injuries across that organization. The floor is going to be one hundred wins for the dodgers. So I mean and now When you say it's about October for the dodgers you're basically you're saying it's gotta be about getting October for the angels because the number of time here best player all my God? If we saw Mike Trout and October the whole the country needs to see him. And it's only happened once in two thousand fourteen. We finally get it. You think I mean with Peterson being added to Ren don't and obviously madden pushing. The Buttons Zoltan is apparently getting ready to pitch and hit. I mean this is it right. Jeff I'll tell you their lineup when Jack Jack Petersen deal goes through has a chance to be absolutely scary. You've got Peterson you've got. You've got just Anthony Ren down at third base. Hamilton Simmons David Fletcher and hit at second base. I mean they've got guys up and down that lineup. Who are really really good? Their pitching staff is a problem problem. And and they they just have to hope that some of these guys they've got on one year deals like Julio Tehran or Dylan Bundy that they get something out of it in that Otani can come back. Can you know he's not GonNa go out there and throw two hundred innings for you but if you can manage his workload this year coming off the Tommy John Surgery and get those potentially dominant performances that he has shown in the past and his rookie year. Then you know if they can go out and get another started the deadline which they certainly can Suddenly they are a team that it can be in contention but let's not forget rich the the Oakland as are in their division the Houston Astros are in their division and the Chicago White SOX AND MINNESOTA TWINS and Cleveland Indians and are in their league and so are the New York Yankees in Tampa Bay rays even the Boston Red Sox who still believe that they could be playoff contender. We're we're talking like nine teams playoff aspirations here and you can throw the Texas Rangers in there as well. Two thirds of the League right now thinks that it can be a playoff contender. So the angels I think in the end need more if they want one of those spots before I let you go jeff as the poll question of Jeff Passan. Today Chris Chris Brockman. I'm keen to know what his answer would be. Go for it by Jeffrey Looking Way ahead. Who Wins the world series this year dodgers Yankees or the field? Oh that's a good one. I will always take the field just because it's the right bet but if you were to ask me name a world series winner I'd say dodgers dodgers okay dodgers dodgers. Why why do you say that? I think he's pretty good to Jeff Jeff Garrett Cole going games one four seven I mean I kind of liked the chances there now and look the and the Yankees bullpen is better downers. There's there's no question about that but I see in the dodgers opening day Lineup seven all stars and the two guys who are not all-stars or Gavlak Susan top-five prospect in baseball right now and will Smith who by the end of the year. I think is going to be a top five catcher in baseball. This is a dominant dominant potentially historically good team that we're looking at Alright Jeff. PASSAN appreciate the time. Let's chat again soon. Great spot as always. Thanks for the call. Thank you rich. Take everybody bad at chef passing at Jeff passing on twitter. I follow him.

Four rich is the number to dial. Let's get the phone Stephen Houston Here on the rich Eisen show. Let's take your calls Steve. What's going on very rich? Big Show and everything shot. Shout out to Murphy. At a raiders. Fan Radio they're big listeners and have been for years thank you WanNa tell you. Thank you very much. I JUST WANNA say that Houston has really rocked by this scandal with call today and in the trash campaign. It's Russia to your core. You waited your whole life to win a championship. And then something like this happens is staying on the Astros Enda. Hopefully Don't go bounce back and also Garrett Cole that was a huge loss but quite cappella and everything get your question about that Feelings about that. He was a cornerstone of the rockets. And of course I think the more he realized that this rebuild for the rockets and they've got to rebuild for the future and get your thoughts about that and Spurs played last night in Los Angeles against the the Lakers and everything. Just WanNa get your thoughts about coach pop and the job. He's trying to do and everything you try to build that team and can't help coach propaganda three bill. He's just a hall of Tena Coach. I hear you stay tuned since you're obviously is Houston. Jj Watt coming up in our number. Three it's a Stephen Houston a Chris. I I'm just going to and the Capella trade is kind of a little. But of a head scratcher. Maybe he's one of those things where you look and see how they're playing with harden and West Broken Capella a piece that you could swap out and see how you know. Obviously COVINGTON might fit in better right. I guess a young Guy Athletic gladdock takes up so much space. Does all the little things you want. Rebound block shot. I mean in Maury. We trust as far as I'm concerned on there in Houston. Ah Guy knows exactly what he's doing I think so. I mean but but I if I was Cappella I'd WanNa go to a team that had at least some playoff off hopes this sure but next season who the hell knows the hawks go and get the the number one overall pick in the draft. They win the lottery and then suddenly you're in. You're you're in good shape. I think also to to be able to play with trae young. The Sky is proving himself to be the real deal and so to have that opportunity I think would be exciting. And as far as the spurs are there three games out of the playoffs. And you want to trust anybody. It'll be there at the end. I'm sure Pas a fun game last night on twenty twenty men so I I don't know if I gave you know our man Steve What he's looking for but then again I'm focused another basketball matters these days locked in your house. Fifth Grade Basketball Team B. Team my son. Zander scored his first two points of his career on Monday makeup game for previous game. It was blacked out on television. They just lost power so it was. I could say there was a power outage but I better black blacked out. I was upset. Yeah blacked out. It's we made up back to backs back to backs coach Bryan called in yesterday to give the news to you right breaking news. The stars played in the starting lineup and coach Bryan was rewarded with a stat line of four points. One four four point two buckets. I thank God because he's right handed. I think I think on the block On a certain block where he's gotTa turn towards the Baseline and eases right handed off the window. I think he's got that one down he's got it down right you know it's coming Out of his hand with a little bit of rotation Lou kice off the glass to hoops gotta work on his free throws. We'll get got to work on a free throws he didn't go to the line at one point found out yes he went to the line and no good put them in order to get to work on that they know it's We're still but at one point you know we're on a roll like literally was escorting. It lasts It was it was a lot to a little bit more okay than previously had four. I mean I mean I know right was great and we're all having a blast. His parents you know is buddy. Is Buddy Oliver's shooting threes and I'm like literally slapping all his like back to. It's not it's not a probably appropriate but we haven't learned fun still haven't won yet. That's all right coach. Brian's work and asked tail off that's great man the x men Scott Stat lines stats that lines deadline. That's Oh yeah I like it. A little round ball rock go to break.

MLB Players Need To Wake Up Already

"Good morning boomer. However you blue streak Domus bow to the thank you very much. I appreciate that Great Segio how to shake things things up a little bit this morning. You know just getting a little monotonous doing the same thing over and over and over and over again and I'm glad we have some sports talk about this morning. I'm not surprised that the Major League Baseball Players Association would turn this down and frown this down the way that they have. This is a negotiating tactic that has been going on for years and years and years and years and years. And I know this because I was a part of the NFL PA back in nineteen eighty seven and what happened to us in nineteen seven is kind of like the reverse of what is trying to be done by the major league baseball owners to the players so back in one thousand nine hundred seven if you remember we went on strike after we to and a number of the higher paid player and well known players decided to cross the picket line and it basically ruined the Union's attempt to change things initially or immediately asap. Eventually we got to it. That striking eighty-seven led to where we are today and there are a lot of decisions that were made in the late. Eighties early nineties that today. Still run the run the players and all that other stuff and there's over fifteen hundred players in the NFL and everybody's got a different set of circumstances in a different agenda in baseball you know. They've been a proud of a union. They've been very very strong union and they have held together quite impressively if you ask me as a former player and always said you know if the NFL players get ever model the major league baseball players then they would finally have something. But what's going on here now is rob. Manford is a labor lawyer. That's why he is the commissioner. He was the commissioner of before him. He was his right hand. Man He handle all these things so he's no dummy. He knows what's going on so what they're doing is they're trying to divide and conquer so they're telling the lesser players the players. That make less amount of money. That you're going to receive almost all of your pro pro rated money and guys like in Garrett Cole and Bryce Harper going to have to take significantly less than like if you want to Garrett Cole who who's been busted his ass as entire career to finally get the contract from the Yankees that you have a choice and your choices right now as we sit here today to make nine million dollars for eighty two games or make no money at all if there are no games now the players. I've been telling you they have been paid one hundred and seventy million dollars up until this Sunday. So a guy. Like Noah syndergaard. Let's let's use him per second. I'll give you a perfect example. Let's say he's making I think he's made a little bit under ten million but for the sake of this argument. Let's let's say he's making ten million dollars this year. Ten million dollars this year the way the Major League Baseball Poise. It's pays its players would really equate to about fifty thousand dollars a day. And that's why he can afford a twenty three thousand dollar a month rental in. Tribeca NO PROBLEM I'll else up to take taxes into account and everything else but but I'm I'm I'm basically talking in whole numbers here now people so people don't understand under the current circumstance right now. The initial agreement that was made on March twenty six a guy like Noah syndergaard since that day is probably been making five thousand dollars a day and has played. I don't know if he's picked up a baseball but there are no organized activities. Only doing well. I'm just saying if he wasn't hurt you know he. He basically is being paid five thousand dollars a day up until this point up until this Sunday other guys were a little bit less depending on. What the contractors and other guys are making a little bit more depending on what their contractors. I'm sure that Bryce Harper Garrett Cole or making a hell of a lot more than Noah syndergaard is because to make it three times more than he is with their salary. So I'm sure they're making somewhere between fifteen and twenty thousand dollars a game not playing just sitting around so that deal was already done and in that deal and I don't know you have to be a moron not understand what is written in that deal in March twenty six and what was written in that deal that look you know we. We're going to have to come back to the table. Once we get a better understanding of what it's going to look like and the owners have basically for the last two weeks have been winning the court of public opinion. If you ask me and the reason for that is very few owners even say anything. They let the the Office Front Office. Do the speaking for them. Rob Manfred Group through the speaking for them and Rob Manfred. Group is smart. They're putting a little things out to the Joel Sherman's Jeff Passan's of the world people like that and they're kind of showing what the economic realities of this season have been so that's why I think we as fans and side with the owners. It's easier for us to understand this whole wait a second. You're telling me you're not going to go to work to play a game. We would all kill to play four eight million dollars as opposed to thirty six million dollars. It's easier for the sports fan to process that because we can equate. It's other things I think about the healthcare workers. That don't have a choice that are not getting raises or anything like that. That are going into work everyday where it's harder for us to digest the owner side of things because we also we could put a face to a lot of these players and we could also put a face and an opinion in a lot of cases to these players because guys like Mike Trout of come out and said things guys like Noah syndergaard and of course the infamous Blake Snell video. That has been out there. That is really gotten everybody riled up so yeah I would agree with you even though there's still a good amount of people out there that think the owners are just horrible for coming after the players salaries in the way that they are. I mean there are people that believe that I'm with you. I think that most people feel like the players. It's up to the players to either play or not and then they are the ones that are greedy if they don't and basically what the owners have done here is. They've tried to divide and conquer. So you know for all the guys that make less than a million dollars though almost make fifty percent of what they were supposed to make this year in the two games that they're going to play so CBS Sports Dot Com is a nice break down here of four Yankees that fit into all the categories for people who are trying to understand how these pay cuts that the major league baseball the the owners have proposed to the player so Garrett Cole thirty six million dollars this year the prorated salary that the players thought they were going to play for Garrett Cole would have gotten eighteen point two million dollars under this new understand what that is that is half the play half the Games right for an eighty right but that but that does not count what he's already made up to this point for not playing any games right and now the sliding scale salaries. They're calling it. Is Eight point zero six million dollars for the year which is a pay reduction of seventy seven percent? Now someone like Kyle. Gosh Yoka full season. Salary is five hundred. Seventy nine thousand dollars. His prorated salary for the eighty two games would have been two hundred ninety four thousand dollars and this sliding scale salary for him is two hundred sixty nine thousand dollars which is a total pay reduction of only fifty three point five percent. So that's the example. You were just giving the guys who are making like what. Kyle Gosh Yoga's making. It's a fifty percent reduction the guys like Garrett Cole. Those salaries are almost an eighty percent reduction. Right and so so. What are the owners trying to do? Here they're trying to divide and they're trying to conquer so the question is how many of those guys like he got. She ohka Pete Alonzo the guys are making under a million dollars at will almost be you know made whole if you will. If they come back there are a lot more of them than there are the garrick holes and the Bryce Harper's but I would also say four. Kyle Higashi OHKA and for Lonzo. Remember the history of your union and there will be a time when you actually are at that money trough and you're going to have to put a lot of sweat equity into it. You'RE GONNA have to go through a lot of injuries. You're going to have to go through a lot of different things to finally get we're Garrett Cole and Bryce Harper have gotten to and it's going to be later in your career because that's just the way baseball is set up so this is why the Major League Baseball Players Association does not trust the owners. They just don't they have this thing in. The back of their mind is that they're being lied to and I understand I totally understand. I'm not like emotionally involved in this. Because I know that there's just no way shape or form that the players are gonNA agree with the first proposal. That is put out there. There's going to have to be more back and forth. I do believe that the owners have been very smart and how they have done this because they they really have won the court of Public Repent opinion. I do also believe that you know they have waited this long now to put pressure on the players because you know the closer we get the June The the reality is that. It's unlikely that the would be season if they don't come to an agreement then they're not. GonNa Start Actual Baseball Games until July so there is time to get this done through the first week of June and maybe they open July fourth. The other interesting thing about all of this is the situation regarding the playoffs. Remember they are adding teams to the playoffs. They're also adding team players to the roster. So there's a cost there as well and the big thing here that never gets talked about from the owners perspective or the players perspective. I don't care. I think some players do care but for the most part it's all about them. It's about their salaries. And it's about their their their contracts and of course their careers. Is that teamed? Our teams have already started furloughing other employees because of this financial burden that the owners will end up having to have when it comes to paying the players but then also putting all the safety protocols in place all the testing you know all the all the whatever they have to do within their own buildings to make sure that they meet all the standards that sixty seven page proposal that Major League Baseball put out. Initially the keep everybody healthy because of course there are health and safety concerns. The Union has those health and safety concerns and they're the ones supposedly taking the risk. Meanwhile the owners are furloughing other employees. Meanwhile the owners are going to have to invest in making sure that all these safety protocols are met. There's also the travel cost there. There's a lot of costs that go into running a professional sports team. And you know. They don't have to do if they don't want and I understand that they have made more money over the last ten years and they ever have in their history but in this given situation I kind of feel like you know it's while it's only the first opening salvo that the players are going to have to come to the realistic notion that they wanNA play. They're going to have to take significant. Pay Cut this year. Only this is nothing to do with next year. It has nothing to do with the next. Cba This is just four this year. Only the next five months you and I have vacillated on whether or not they were going to play some days. We yeah it seems like they're gonNA play other days. You say it seems unlikely. They're going to play. I have to say when I saw this first proposal yesterday just knowing what I know of the positions of the players and the owners I said Wolf. He's got a long way to go that. There's no way that the players are going to say yes to this. There's going to be more negotiation. And how much are the owners going to budge? If at all so I was hoping for something yesterday that we could look at and say man this is not ideal for everybody. We understand. We're all in different situations in different circumstances. Everybody's making adjustments during this time to make sure that we can contribute in a way that keeps things alive if you will for lack of a better term But the players should take. This and I didn't see that yesterday. What I saw was something that that seemed dramatic. More dramatic than I thought and it seems to me that we are still far apart. And we haven't had an official word from Tony Clark or an official word from anybody you see. These articles about reports union is pissed about this whatever? I haven't heard anything I mean. I haven't heard anything ticked about positive about it of course but you know I. I do think that there's there's a long way to go. And as of this morning even though this is a roller coaster feeling more negative about them reaching a deal. Well like I said it's the first salvo. In this whole thing I would tell players like Marcus stroman and Blake's now and everybody else in between keep your mouth shut because you're not going to win in the Court of public opinion. God forbid if Marcus Stroman had a loved one in one of the nursing homes in New York City and had that love one pass away and then he would have something that he could actually compare it to in real life. Because what's going on here and what has gone on here over. The last ten weeks is just an. It's an it's an absolute and has been an absolute mess. And there's been a lot of headache and heartache and there has been a lot of people that have been on the front line that have just been putting themselves in the line of fire. Governor Cuomo said it again yesterday that he is amazed at how these people get up every single day and they go to work whether it be in the hospitals the supermarkets the police department the fire department the EMT's all those people out there that are going every single day. Not even thinking about whether or not they're going to make nine million dollars for an eighty two game season now so when you put it in that realm and you compare it to what's happening on the ground and the fact that the. Us government has made it more apt to become unemployed. Make more money unemployed than it is to be employed you have now over thirty million people unemployed at least statistically unemployed of but still bringing in money but I I just. I don't see how the fan in any way shape or form a show any sort of sympathy towards the player. They're just not going to. And the Court of public opinion has been won by the owners. It will continue to be won by the owners and the other thing too and I do believe this is that look if you want to. The dodgers the cubs probably the red sox the Yankees. Maybe the braves because they did so well last year at the nationals. Probably did okay. You probably get a lot of owners that are sympathetic can just want to play baseball games. But then when you get to the pirates you get to the raise you get to the Tigers you get to some of the smaller market teams. The royals saying look man we we. We can't do business under these conditions because we will be losing money and that's where Major League Baseball's office in Rob Manfred have got to come up with a a some sort of equation within the body of the owners that makes it lucrative enough for all teams to buy into whatever they're selling you gotta remember the so. The Major League Baseball Commissioner has two jobs. He's got to corral the entire ownership group and tell them this is what they're proposing and he's got deal with all the different personalities there and then he's gotTa take his proposal to the Union and then he's gotta deal with all the different personalities. They're so he's a messenger. He's trying to do the right thing. I believe in this case but I also know that the players are very very untrusting they do not trust the union at all adults see pre pandemic all right pre pandemic. I sided with the players. A lot of the times when people would say. Just shut up and play. You're making all this money and all these things that these these common thoughts that fans would have now. Let's say he can't get mad at this players. Players wanted to greatest in the world at his job. That's what he's worth that's the market value. You see the evaluations of these franchises and sometimes like in the NBA. That one guy made that place. I mean we just watch this Jordan documentary. One Guy made a shoe company A to NBA franchise all his teammates. I mean so that can happen and I normally would defend the player and say he's making that much money because that's what he's worth and he's doing this this and this to make other people money in this particular situation. I can't apply that same logic. I can't we're talking about a short season in a pandemic where people are not going to understand any of the dollars and sense that the players are looking at. It is going to be harmful to the sport. It's going to be harmful to the reputation of the players will go back and watch in this area in New York because we love the mets. We love the Yankees. And we're going to pay attention to them. Our listening audience is filled with diehard baseball fans. That will back. I can't say that about every market. I can't it's a very regional sport. It's loss of national appeal. It will continue to lose national appeal because of this. This is something you got to bond together. You gotta say all right. Everybody's getting screwed in. Call anybody in any industry and most of them ninety percent of them and say. Hey you're going through some stuff will we're going through some stuff too. We're all on the same page and just go out there and get it done for the for the good of the game. I know it sounds cheesy but honestly you know for the good of the game. Yeah I think they're also you know there there has to be an. I'm sure there will be eventually that if the owners do better than they say they're going to do. There's always going to be a cloud over this. This is how it's going to start. Oh my God. The Sky is falling. We'RE NOT GONNA make a lot of money but there should be another clause in this agreement that says that if there's more money than expected then the players should reap the benefits of that money as well and that's how you can protect yourself at least in the short term so just to go back to the ten million dollar player scenario once again. Imagine making five thousand dollars a day from one. This pandemic started. That's basically what that player is making five thousand dollars a day. That will end this coming Sunday. And then there'll be no more money. Okay so that's a part of that hundred and seventy million. That was paid out now. What the owners are asking. What a ten million dollar player would normally be making fifty thousand dollars a day. What they're asking that player to do now instead of making that fifty thousand dollars a day they want him to make somewhere between twenty five and thirty thousand dollars a day. So that's what they're asking for in terms of nutshell when it comes to ten million dollar player and I think when you think of it that way and one the fans think in that way is going to be really hard for the players to argue that kind of money a bit. You'RE GONNA turn down and you're not gonNA play for anything. The other thing too is the owners can hold a hell of a lot longer. They have an asset that sitting there. If they want to sell it some day they can sell it. The player he only has so many years the play and losing a year. Even if it is nine million a year for Garrett Cole is still a lot of money and the question that Garrett Cole and Bryce Harper and everybody else that are on that upper tier of pay in major league. Baseball have to ask themselves. Are they willing to sacrifice all of that money and going into next year that that's basically what it comes down to all right boomer and Geo just getting started on this Wednesday morning on the fan and CBS sports network?

It's IT'S A it's a beautiful Wednesday Garrett Kohl's officially New York Yankee. We got our Christmas party tonight. Survivor season finale. Two more days till break. Good good vibes all around. What a great day to be a human being to be a New York Yankee fan I mean just just everything about that press conference I know you were doing your advisors She went UNC alive. But it was. You know honestly almost brought a tear to my eight could not have have been constructed and choreographed any better. Garrett Cole was phenomenal. All this guy's done so far handling the `Paparazzi and this press conference he was flawless. I'm I didn't think I'd find love again. I'm in love with Garrett Cole I my heart is so open for this man and everything about him is perfect. This moment was destined to happen. One day I guess it wasn't destined to happen. Right Outta. UC right out of high school wasn't destined to happen. You know a couple of seasons go and they could've traded for from the pirates but it was destined destined to happen and we finally got it. He looks good in pinstripes. He looks around the hat. Listen these pathetic. Oh that's all. They had to stand on their we know met fans their sewer rats cockroaches doc roaches their pathetic red SOx fans or they're hanging onto the past this point inc thing onto the Patrick five to here for a world series idols in sixteen years to win four next five five and they just can't say a word so they're clamoring on the past right now all they have is that Garrett Cole doesn't look I guess as good maybe with the shave beard you think give a fuck with Garrett Cole Chin and cheeks look like does one hundred and one hundred one bit a better pitcher in baseball. I don't care what he looks like. You know what I think. He's pretty handsome anyway. He looks spent tasks instead. Robert Deniro somewhere applied. The barstool main account tweeting looks like Blake Shelton which is like a bigger blake shelton scenario vitamin A stretch. But like he just looks. I see what you're saying. Same with Deniro thing we can roll with Lakesha he look. I don't care if you student in the world. Do you think I care like. He's just a great pitcher. He's yeah all right the beard. maybe it adds a little bit of Still have his flow though he's throws his flow people are like oh he's got he's got like buzzes hair like he's GonNa one of the army no he doesn't have hair. GOING NOAH syndergaard hair. He has normal like he can wear that. Frazier has people WANNA say always not as intimidating without without the beard. We'll go when they're seeing one hundred bucks our. That's pretty goddamn intimidated. The fuck out yeah adorable like. KFC does low really has like they've ever been like this this really up a pitiful like perform and then KFC will say in five years. This Guy Steve Cohen. He's on the team and he is going to be amazing using. It's going to go to jail opener of your. It's it's the met fans are a but now it's a great day to be key. I don't WanNa pay much attention. We won't these little brothers. He's the sewer rats. These cockroaches these red SOx fans hang onto the past but it's a great day to be we gotta just ignore them so let's get into the press coverage reverence. 'cause it was beautiful. It was fantastic. He starts out. So he's there. I love how map lake was there. Map Lake is the most like most important pitching coach in the history of pitching coaches. Know pitching coach sits on that day. s like that. Like why Ron Shell does not sit on the map. Lake is just so important so it. It's just the key to all this and they're like you have to be here. He's the face of pitching. When you think pitching you think basically think ping you fucking map lake? Oh yeah he and they interview after Games Games home personal interview with Mike Michael Afterwards and like. He's just he's just fantastic. I I'm so Kathy. Everything Blake says. I believe everything. He says. He's going to change everything and he's take care call even better which is like scary. It's terrifying. They asked him there. Like is there more. Can you improve. He goes yeah. I mean I think so like that we look at this all going to happen here But the the story of the press conference Caracol still has the sign and he had from the two thousand and one world series when he went to see the Yankees. Play where it's like God still has it house boss. I A joke when I saw the pictures of I I was like Oh. That's cool like they remade the sign. Only God it's the same. One instructor faded the bluest faded. But he just had his parents kept it this whole time. That's INCR- that's all Yankee fans like us. You know we grow up at that age. Were dreaming about becoming a Yankee. It's like the lifelong dreamlike. This is a guy that that did that. I mean you know for people want to say. Oh He's just following the money. Yeah I'm sure three hundred twenty four million dollars did the trick but I really do believe beliefs deep down. He's always been enamoured by the there are many people out there who just can't pitch a New York and are afraid to even just pick up their whole family sonny gray but there's it's also people who are free. Johnson like have the opportunity. Shohei ohtani little little Patty Corbin who just go pitch. Yeah so many people cliff Lee. Oh my wife got the Yankees often but there are many people out there because the dollars hours were there for the dodgers and angels. They offered twenty five close to three hundred. It wasn't three twenty four but if he had this fear of pitching New York whatever and didn't want to come here and win Heasley easily could have just shown California and live the Angels Stadium. It's like ten minutes or where he grew up so he's embracing the challenge. He wants to be here. He's he literally was asked asked why he chose the Yankees. He said it's been dream was faked you research. That gives me too. I know it's like pandering as much Boris Probably Tulsa handed they. Give it to me all it was. It was like this is the Vince. McMahon gets kicked it better and then all of a sudden every which way I should be Hanky and you have the sign like. Oh I'm pressures are. Privileged to to say pressure is a privilege that's awesome do. I'm not sure probably shirts here. We're trying by the way like if it's time you listen we're trying we can't say Yankees on the T. shirt so we we can't can't make the like. We wanted two weeks ago a month a year ago to make someone Garrett Cole as a kid we can't put that shirt out because it says Yankees. So yeah we have a deal. He'll love hubs personally but parcells deal. MLB or the players sociation and shit. which like it's good because it? Lets US approve stuff. We don't get seen deed but that's out of that coin is that you know some of these other websites like we can't be the wild wild west like them. We can't put pinstripes pinstripes shit lot of things we can do but we have to work around it call house. He's going to be Yankee for nine years forever to buy forever forever forever forever. It's unbelievable jared. Call Me Pussy on twitter at all that thus on Wednesday December Eighteenth Twenty nineteen is the first day of the end of Jerry Karabelas life. Nothing will be good after. He'll never smile again. It's all going to be Yankees Yankees Yankees Isa Red Sox and be miserable price and bets and all this there would be so fucking they signed Martinez Perez that was their Garrett Cole. Martine Peres remember when trump called Kim Jong Hoon little rocket man. That's that's our from the SAUGUS rocket after the you know. Then the white sox Dave Shit Garrett Cole. He's now little rocket man. Oh God fucking day mortgage. He said it's the Yankees Yankees are the best organization in my opinion in the league pressures of privilege wise. Yang's is my dream. He said that the Yankees gave him. This is something that needs to be talked about more hopefully more interviews throughout the off season and spring training. We'll figure it out. Exactly what is in this thing. But when the Yankees went to meet with him they give you this like gold thirty pound gold home plate and it opens up. And there's is an ipad there and Gary Kobo. These millennials who is like ipads are cool. He's like I love that show a but it it. It tells you everything about the steinbrenners where to live in New New York how to Handle York like secret information shorts like I compare it to you probably like you ever see national treasure like the book of Semester Right. So it's just a wave starting sentence. It's Thomas Yeah but Yeah book the next president because it's like everything about Yankees secret stuff we don't even know fucking exists short of a secret underground clubs the shit now but it also is a Yankee hat and he said the moment he got the he's like I didn't take it off for three days again probably lie. I don't care most exactly alike because he probably met with teams right after that. I doubt he met with the angels. Yeah there's other you could say here could be Yankee. I just need to know more about this. Thirty pound gold home plate that secret. Think like I don't think fucking Ronald to race had that like what's the what's the what's the bar is just free agents. I wonder Luke void. I feel like hasn't seen that but has Aaron judge even because he was drafted so there's never been any willing of him. I wonder who seen maybe our new question is have you. Have you ever met Jacoby. Have you ever seen the plate over leading. The I mean I mean you look at it back but I mean it was a trade and then a racket. Ca Rods being stuff in CC's probably seen it oh see SEC's sees was back way back. Feel like this gold home plate has more they haven't sought have ipads back. Haven't signed any of this new thing and Beltran Like do you think they showed it to Machado Harper. Oh yeah you know they probably did. So maybe it was. Maybe this is it for. The golden play didn't work trash. Take it so I I got to find out more about this everything about it. Maybe it was Robert when we talked to Robert was we want to ask anything except for the gold home plate but then they also estimate Andy Pettitte and how Andy Pettitte he was. The exact quote is something about when any pet at wins like no matter. What pretty much? And it's just like anyone here and it's any pet deserves. Everything more heaters a ring when this all goes down he deserves just money. You should just like wire money. Andy Pettitte Pets Bank account like you did a great job here. He should be on the float when we win. The world series employees. Being but in my mind is yeah might as well. But he isn't. Though I feel like maybe a consults advisor there's so many special visors to Casper ever had like a board room meeting with his special visors like they would need like Yankee Stadium. Higher Stephen the fill out I also liked Garrett Cole and his press conference he thanked he shouted out Marvin Miller curt flood. who were two guys who got an inducted inducted into the hall of fame? Recently Marvin Miller was so desert-like finally getting no. Yeah it was crazy. Every single person feel like who has a brain was like. Why is it Marvan Miller in the hall but it's just like a cool thing for the shadow like this is his day his moment and he's like he's a big player association guy? He's a there's a few guys in the Yankees are so help. I love that but I just think it was very cool. How this is Garrett? Cole's moment and he's still taking the time here right off the bat to chat up more as it's a nice moment there amy Cole. By the way it's stunning. I love Nicole. She's she's not the first lady a your King Queen. She was great. How steinbrenner man? I don't know what that guy's doing I don't. I don't think he just knows how to operate as a human being being. It's okay just operate New York Yankees. Joe Is like the guy just doesn't know how to sit the entire time. It looked like he was trying to like a terrorist in the crowd. Maybe he was. You know what I like. I don't want my my owner. My billionaire owner. Being like down-to-earth. I want him I. I'm sure he's out but I want him being like and sitting there and normal like I want him always thinking always thinking about winning always thinking about dollars and cents. I don't want to Be Successful as HAL is and the entire Steinbrenner's are breath like Tom Brady. Colby like you're GONNA be off a little bit you can't be you can't be a normal guy and not fucking tomatoes like Tom Brady. Does you have to be successful. You have to have you know something off and I love that. There was a fun theory going around today. That George Steinbrenner visited him this off season and like spooked Tim and like was like you. Better fucking sign. Get a car maybe when psychic medium or whatever the George Steinbrenner this aussies no doubt about it. Maybe maybe Georgia's ghost was going all around the room. Jack was looking. It's like housing making sure everything's going. Well where's George what's going on here but yeah how looked like a nervous wreck but I but I loved it and it's good to have how Simon or officially be like a steamer and I'm like okay. We're just GONNA fucking pay everybody so love that and they released just what the wine so we haven't talked with. This wine was apparently a big part. Well not a big part but it was a nice cherry on top of the meeting out in California Nia and they must grape ontop way to go there because wine is derived from grapes. In fact now now you know that But they came out to four and two hundred and five Macedo Merlot. Um which I looked up at spelling eight hundred bucks. I think I think if I looked at the right one but not expensive enough off like wine. I feel like there's a thousand dollars asking this Davis. They're on radio. What's the most expensive bottle of wine? So He's been out with Poli and billionaires thousands of dollars just like just for a bottle of wine that's the ultimate power and there's no way tastes much different than Chianti or some shit. I get a fifteen dollar bottle red delicious. Yeah for testing. But if I had the money to spend course I'd be dropping ten K.. So wait what's your fear what I mean there. There's one called Chianti in there's another call. something that starts with an M. Mar moral back. My new favorite wine is leagues. Five mosquito that's my new favorite one. I will only order that. WanNa go out nice. Yep Eight hundred also like a good caps off But anyway look he so obviously. He had his weird things gear. Colleges was gonNA wear forty five. I don't know how much say Luke void actually had in this But he decided Garrett Cole decided. He wanted this he gave. They haven't disclosed what the gift was but he sent Luke void some sort of gift.

I suggested that Lucas for like five hundred back. I think that was a reasonable. Yeah I made me. That's a bit much five hundred km one hundred K.. Okay yeah or one hundred K.. Worth of valuables like you like I don't know I mean maybe car one of my cars cars. I don't want to pay my car off anymore or like your new a new house room. Maybe add new house. We're talking millions of dollars. Three or twenty four million of this contract I know but forty five whatever salutes wearing fifty nine now which is what his brother wore at army. It's going to look weird sixty nine. We're probably work but I feel like that'd it'd be like to but fifty nine works. I think because like you look at Leuke. Looks like an outside linebacker when I think fifty nine I think of an outside linebacker I think he would agree to Give some people were saying take eighteen. I think that's me twenty. One would've worked like we. Ha- are the have to decide what they're going to do with the number twenty one like Paul O'Neil. He's the warrior can favorite. But then just fucking retire the number like okay. letroy Hawkins can't have it obviously when he tried that. But we can't like it'd be it's ridiculous to have it unofficially retired. Nobody US you have to give it to somebody who the fans love. which is Luke Floyd? WHO's like a heart and soul the team type guy? I think it would work well for I am. I thought it could've worked for a young guy. COMES UP Jason Dominguez. Maybe you have to eventually get it back to the rotation you have to do it with someone that people will like an accept it with. I think it would have it up but if you don't WanNa work twenty one that's for sure I feel like he was uncomfortable. I feel like Lucas Long wearing twenty one. Maybe some people But fifty nine works so fifty nine. What all right that? Let's start that Train Jason Dominguez Gore number twenty one godsend and he could have whatever number he wants and he's GonNa Bring Twenty back into the rotation I'm completely on board with that too By the way I think we've we each get like we get like Jason Dominquez like video every now and then of him. It's just every single one is just like this guy is going to run the world and if one day to Garrett Cole will be in the same field oh US can be so cool Benway's Garrett calls. Yeah I can't wait for the mets Harvey Day. Well cold as going to take over that and cold is going to be every time. Garrett Cole pitches it's going to be a Yankee. James Comey spectacle you need to you. Don't I've been watching. Highlights going to sleep of this guy nonstop like he's fifteen strike. Oh game in the playoffs. I watch pretty much every striker last year. He so fucking good I. This is going to be a really really really fun for us. It's going to be. Yeah I mean we haven't had I go see see In Oh nine to knock in two thousand fourteen. It was like Tanaka time but like we have so much that you set your watch to all right. Let's just buckle in for the night and watch a twelve strikeout dominates Randy Johnson and no for an wasn't saying but like when he pitched what he had his his first. Starting the red SOx trick. I like nine guys in six innings. That was fun and it's like. Oh Wow this could be cool league. The they start in Baltimore Right. That's I mean that's going to be must see what are we in that game minus four fifty. Is it possible. That is just can't be bet so I was. I was talking about with my friends. They started remember. There was a couple games every word a hitch at home. It was like four hundred right. I remember like minus. They lost two of them but like there are minus three nine members of outrageous. Yeah like like they can be minus five hundred they really know so there were online will be minus two and a half but the vague on top of that will be one eighty two hundred which Krizia like like there's GonNa be some unbeatable. There are a lot of unbeatable games with the steam especially when coal number forty five is pitching but yeah so I mean it's it's just it's a great day overall. Yeah any day that he pitches will be crazy. I can't wait even just spring training spring training when he's pitches that's can be hopefully. We're there to see him personnel. Be So cool. I thought also lessen anger coal the Paparazzi thing couple days ago. First of all. Let's relax Paparazzi. TMZ Ramsey people the TMZ people asked like the weirdest question so like the understand about TMZ is it TMZ people or is it random people themselves is TMZ. Both I think well that's a combination you can submit a video online to TMZ celebrity. And you get something from that photos. Yeah but also they have their own people that are who we're on the TV show thereby Halima questions and honest. This is when I knew like this where he just could be perfect here. He had so perfectly he was flawless. It was like a minute long but he I would just like people were having signed baseball right right different things in the baseball like let's go yankees and all this. And he was just nicest could be and he you know He. He smile answered some questions even though he said he's GonNa the same for the press conference and he just had no problem with it. And I you know rainy you think back to Randy Johnson. It's amazing how bad of a fucking first day in New York. That guy had where he just cameraman who just wanted to take. A picture of him wasn't really like you know being that crazy I feel like and randy's just an asshole and it is polar opposite. He's that prints the promised. He's everything we could have asked for. Air Coils Amazing. I love it moving on to some other things. We have an interview coming by the way so we want to talk first weed ever coming at the end of the show. Kyle Gosh Yoga. He's now going to be he'll be looks for backup. Catcher seems with the Yankees are really sold on something. We're saying Martinez Maldonado being it. Because he's got his personal catcher. I don't buy personal catchers unless like you hate the guy like there's bad Burnett Kasahda right like if these guys I just don't like each other on the field. That's another story but it's like if the numbers just lean one way like I don't know that's just kind of bullshit in my opinion. Yeah I mean Cole is going to have to be used to get used to pitch China Gary because I mean the Yankees ultimate lineup is going to have gary behind the plate soul and Cole on the mound so I don't. You're good enough or out of the personal catcher. Matters that much effect jokers try these personal catcher. Yeah time self right years to get. I mean he's you know that presumably right now the backup catcher you know. It's good for him to get the opportunity Nice guy to the reasoning behind him being the backup catcher now. Not The third string is is that awesome Romaine took a deal with tiger. GonNa go start there. Good for him happy for him. I think he deserves it. He's been with that team. I didn't realize how long he with the Yankees Austin remind. But but here's the second round pick. I believe it was two thousand seven or eight ten seven hundred. One of those years Things oh seven. But he's been there troll long and he'd Monte Pill Triano is the name of the one. Okay yeah that was random. I just found out I I asked Montana okay so anyways anyone wondering awesome has been here forever. And he's paid his dues. He's a second pick. Bullet didn't realize he was such a high pick but it's his time. He deserves start. He's not going to get like there's only so many chances he's GonNa have where he has such a good year and then go into a year or teams one in the start so good for him and it makes sense for the Yankees too. I mean you know. Look they love room. I and Bob Talk Talk. Talk to us about that. Last week I was a leader in the clubhouse but you know obviously the Yankees and we'll we'll talk about dede but they obviously made coal a priority and I don't know to spend that much on a backup catcher. When you have Gary Sanchez guys? Waiting in the wings probably didn't make too much finance. Yes the interesting thing. Here is though that she goes to the Tigers and he fought in the Gobert. That was the first thing I thought but also he'd looks like a tiger. I could see him rather overtime anymore. Believe she's still there. Andrew minded divorce because he play this thing where he played all positions in the game for the Tigers. Andrew Roman. Yeah in one game. He played every position in one. Yeah he's not there anymore the big deal at the Seattle teams last time. I did not know that he played every. Oh yeah there's there's a list of all the positions he's played and I'm sure he's played them all throughout his career but playing him. The game was like the tiger out of the playoffs on the like the last game. That more if that's like fun it's like when the Yankees used to be so far ahead in the east that they would make like Bernie Williams manage. I wish they'd fucking bring that back when you'd have like an Roger. Clemens will be the pitching coach or whatever. Yeah that was cool. I like that but anyways. Yeah so we're all mine the tiger for him or happy for him hopefully hopefully someone videotapes his first interaction with Miguel Cabrera. I assume things are like smooth it out like see romance still hating him. I don't know it Musica. Cabrera Heating Roy Moore the fucker. You Yeah Yeah but Yeah we're happy for him. I'm GONNA for him another guy who was officially leaving sad. It's just I mean we knew it was gonNA happen. D took his picture with the phillies. Next Girardi it was it felt like a prank. It felt like some crazy prank. What's going on here because almost like he doesn't WANNA be there? I'M GONNA. I'm sure embrace philly but like when they asked him about you know did. Did you have conduct. Basic Aspirin called me once they they made it clear Kohl's their priority like it broke my heart and it makes sense and you know I guess they had pretty much decided to move onto not gonNA call him every fucking day but it's at I mean who knows maybe it was a good year in Philly comes home next office right. People are saying like could just easily seen here in like a year or two and yeah very well possible. The New York Post by with shittiest headline line says Glorious Garrett Cole Cost Me Yankees Return. He never said that. Yeah ever the only thing he said was that Cash and made it clear there was there priority. And he's like we talked on the phone once and that was really. I decided the what's best for me. And all that and he was totally these as always is like he was just you know very polite in his in his interview with the phillies and all that he never said Gerrit. Cole cost me my Yankees Return. Shut the fuck up near post host. Alex can be clicked bait when it's on the back page of a newspaper because you're not clicking right. PICK UP THE NEW YORK public bicycles papers papers anymore so got it sometimes not myself when I got home. Okay so yeah so so. You'll pay newspaper but very sad CD wishing the best ask Girardi there too. They get batanes. Doubts be rude. I and we don't know where Batista's going seems like not. That which sucks seems like they don't want the report does he wants one year like ten to twelve million. Which seems pretty reasonable to me? I would I don't know why not having given it to him. That Sir Joe but I don't get why the Yankees won't do it. I mean in the hater pursuit. Perhaps later I mean Blake trying you know he's La so I think he's bullpen. I get the Rotations much better now but like I still. You don't want to give up the cabinet super bowl pen. Yeah I feel like it's going to be missed opportunity but I also see del in pitching for the dodgers. I don't know why him going before Jansen. It just feels like he's he he'd rock the show. Dodger blue yeah so I could easily see him going to La. Elliot's got to figure out what they're doing. They look bumgarner go to Arizona and then who knows. What's it's going to have more value? And they're just going to be out there. What they're digging their hands and have no fucking pitcher assigns? They've had a very weird aussies dodger fan and be a little weird because I don't know what the hell they're doing although although I could eat my words and they can go get. mookie Betts and fucking price never go quiet now they never do but yeah I mean right now. There's only so how many free agents left you always trade for a Louis Castio. If they really want to price do they have. Dustin may have many people to trade but they've had really weird offshoots but I could see them getting Dell and because they already got training and I feel like you get to those guys and you hope one of them's good and if both are good than your fucking you have a really good pope in if one of them are good go find and if they both short terms and you move on next year so I see them. Go after del into but it does seem like he's not the Yankees and they'll have to figure out somebody. Maybe Tim Hilton Head coaching rumored around here. Who knows but the Yankees will add one reliever? It appears by the way back to the cold pressed cash right afterwards. What his plan was was You know after this. And he goes well it's like Adriana Guerande and it's like next thank you next. It was trying to do it again. Like I'm glad cashman. It doesn't area on the ground. He's got baseball okay. It's fair Adriatic Rod. I actually for second I was I was like what is her actual name. Because I believe task for like half a second he accepted my brain and thank you next saw yes exactly like her But there's Sir Oh so he's asking what's next who knows. Maybe there is another move to me. Oh by chance Adams was deified for Garrett Cole. That was the responding move people to know what was going to happen with that. This'll we'll we'll see what else there is. I feel like there's one more move coming for some sort of reliever I don't know if it's a sign and trade or whatever I don't think haters GonNa Happen. Yeah he's GonNa just has cost too much they're also like who knows. He's four years of patrol he so valuable like Debbie. Minute would be the ultimate power like fuck you baseball. It'd be no appoint anyone show right so I do sort of like that. I mean they do have the pieces the Yankees but I don't know all got like he's got the past with the tweets and stuff like the new work media harp on them too much for that like how does that adjust like his arm going to fall off because of how much he's been used very violent delivery right about that. I do not see. I would put that at twenty percents that they get hater. Yeah and maybe lower. I'm fine if they don't get them but like if they do it would be jus- US I'm fine if like it costs debbie like. Yeah wouldn't really like I don't know I'm Kinda Devin. Clint and and Albert Abreu seems like a lot. That's a lot that much but I'd probably do it because I think the great him as a reliever as well. I don't I don't know if he's got Clark Schmidt and King. Yeah like I love those guys Schmidt and King and Colt Schmidt King Cole. That's that's a that's a little thing Nat King Cole. Nat King Cole. I mean that's like the best four for next ten years. Let's give relief. We're we're we're a little. We're going to win a lot of world series championship on it and I couldn't. That's all right. It's been a long day and the House also said that in the press we need to win some world world series championships. And I believe we're going to do that sooner rather than later. I believe we're GONNA do that. Plural love at Steinbrenner. Dick on the table. How love this love this change in your brain? It's probably because George haunted sleep like every night that's fine. Whatever took whatever he took and other than that? I think that's such a good day. You mentioned the holiday party leader. Are you always like to drink of these things a lot.

Well go while just Training Lot you're out you're out in California. I'm actually up in Oregon now. Okay Gotcha so we you got the Hot Stove Buzzing Garrett Cole Strasbourg all that with all that going on. How often are you paying attention to rumors signings and all that I mean I I usually see like the big news you know but For the most part I mean sometimes. Sometimes you can't trust PRESA rumor so it's like I don't really pay attention until some actually gets announced are do you find yourself like texting teammates and stuff like at all like what's going on or you're just it just kind of letting it go and let it do setting certain guys. Yeah me and me and the sock man we We go back and forth sometimes about you. Know what's going to happen you guys just get Garrett Cole It'd be nice. I mean he is the big fish this off season. You mentioned Z.. Played with him at high school. A little bit right. We'll see like back. Then what what what can you remember about playing with him. It was there anything back then. Like separated him from everyone else. And you're like this guys can be a superstar. Well I mean in high school he did. He was strong like one hundred miles an hour. I remember so he was obviously a really big deal and Yeah I mean we. We played together a little bit. We played against. She's Charlie a little bit You know he's always he was always really cool with me and then I saw him a couple of times over the years Just random off seasons either either when he was at Ucla or I think he was still at Ucla at the time and You know super cool very friendly guy so you know. I really like like being around him do you. Do you have his number. Do you know anyone that has numbers. We can call them and convinced him right now because he's still deciding at this number. Yeah Oh we'll let the listeners. Suber coordinates on December Tenth Book. You'RE GONNA know probably wear cosigns this so eh ten days or so so this could hopefully by the time. We're listening to this like Oh so great before Garrett Cole. Was Yankee reminiscent those times. Yeah ideally is Sir at this time when you're listening to this going over how to catch Eric and what his tendencies are and they're becoming best of pals that'd be that'd be the jury so you're the draft you were drafted by the Yankees out of high school seventh-round the two thousand eight and you're in math class. I mean what kind of flexes that in High School. I'm just drafted by the Yankees in the middle little class. Everyone else's studying like am I getting the college what's my. Sat score going to be in years like yeah. I'm going to be on the Yankees. Like what kind of flex is that I. I think that's the only time I was Allowed to have my phone out in class but Well the thing is when you're in Calculus class nobody even knows L. is what you're talking about anyways. So it's like they're like Major League baseball draft. What's that about derivatives and random shit? Yeah so There it was cool though that the teachers tried to get like the draft. Board up on the I Dunno L. overhead or whatever but back then it was still kinda the stone ages so wasn't a lot going on in terms of coverage. Yeah that's back in Oh eight. I'm not even in high school back then. I don't even know like smart. Boards like smart boards back. Then we're like the crazy new thing back then big deal when they will the TV. And then you're gonNA watch a move that's how you yes old school. VCR But you know you get dropped by the Yankees. You made the decision to skip college and play for the Yankees. How hard of a decision was that? And you know what went into your final reasoning I mean it was. It was tough because There's a lot you know experiences in college so you probably miss out on or whatnot. especially the ones I see on the Barstool instagram page. Yeah those those are the extremes but No I I I had a number in my mind and and basically said You know if if if you you meet it it's worth it to me if not then all all just go college That's pretty and it's the Yankee you so. Did you up a specific fan where they were you offend the Yankees at in all obviously in California probably not I would guess but what did you have a phantom growing up I like the dodgers a lot But I was more are once I start playing more seriously I was more fan of individual players like Gary Sheffield so I kinda followed him from the dodgers and then he played for the braves. There's a little bit. And then he played for the Yankees. I think he was playing for the Yankees when I got drafted. Yeah that's right it was Yeah I mean he was. He was probably my favorite player in high school. So that was. That was pretty cool. I don't know if you saw the video of him last week. He had a metal bat out. Here's board and he was hitting balls into like a highway awake because he's just the coolest guy. Yeah my my Dad's my dad sent me that he was I think is smoking a cigar at the same time. Yeah kind of as much of a ball move as it gets So you've been in the Yankee system for a long time. I don't know people like realize like Oh wait and you know you you stuck with us and you had the came came back. You're you're a minor league free agent and signed back but was there ever a moment where you were close to kind of giving up on baseball because we've talked to Mike Boorda bunch and you know he had a very very similar situation. Where like you know you got to wonder? Are you ever going to get called up at that point you know and finally getting to the point is great and all but was ever point in your path to the majors where you're just like I don't know maybe I should do something else I mean when I had had surgery I had Tommy John in thirteen. I had surgery surgery. I was like well. I mean better have a plan B just in case. This thing doesn't get back to normal but I mean me and forty are different like he he he did well pretty much every year in the minors and me like I kinda suck for several years straight until I figured it out the plate and and and start hitting better so I mean for me. It was it wasn't so much like frustration that you know I have my ever GonNa get a chance. It's like I need to be good enough to get a chance. So what was the plan B.. Did you have one in mind. Probably like some sort of engineering or or something all right. So you're smart. Four door to vinegar did out like a doctor. You guys seem like you're okay decent backup plans so there's news recently that MLB is looking to basically you know make forty two minor league clubs go extinct. They'RE GONNA cut down by twenty five percent as a guy who spent time in the minor leagues. How do you feel about that? You think that's going to take opportunities away from a lot of guys down there. I don't know I mean I know we have a lot of minor league affiliates but I just I I. I don't really know how it's GonNa Affect the guys. There's always there's always it seems like the few guys that just come out of nowhere to end up being really good major league players. There's so I I mean I'm not really sure how how it's GonNa work or whatever you know if they're going to. Hey I'm better in the minors or because of that. They can smoke weed net. I read that about time in the major leagues are they. They had pretty much something that every sport should be like. Who Cares about weed and finally seems like baseball's the one thing they're like on top on finally minor leagues for doing it too? So that's a nice exchange. I guess it's over the course of time in your minor in the minors and now in the big leagues. You've seen the baseball change drastically. I imagine you know now. I guess they're trying trying to get out in the minor league level to the same as the major league level. And then you know Major League Baseball still comes out and denies everything with No. It's all the same. Meanwhile I mean look at last year. What have you noticed? How different the baseball is you know in your time of in the minor leagues in the majors? Now so the Minor League baseball has always been then like a a marshmallow. It just doesn't go anywhere and that's just kind of how it's been the whole time coming up until this year when they made the AAA ball at the same as the major league ball But I mean to me you know my my first major like spring training was two thousand ten. I think and to me I mean I noticed a huge difference in the ball flight right in bang practice at major league canvas as minor league camp but I mean it seems like the ball is not that different than it used to be. It's just nowadays. The hidden coaches are telling you to swing down and and hit ground balls and be an an and backspin balls to feed off the ground and and whatnot like you guys are getting more in tune with actual like physics of the swing mechanics and and and realizing that. Oh you know we kind of we have to. We have to swing up a little bit to one match the plan of the ball and become become more consistent and then to another added effect of that is having more power. Because you're already hitting it on the way up so so sounds like to me. You're you're a guy who likes to watch film and and you know analytics and all that you're all into all that stuff you buy in. Yeah Yeah Ah it's Kinda like it. I I made a pretty drastic swing change A few years ago right right before I was put on the roster and It was all kind of just realizing that some you know most of the best big league hitters are doing stuff that I wasn't doing and most of it was like I just kind of realized the whole swing down thing create backspin. It's Kinda be as you would never hit more than eight homers in the minor till twenty sixteen. You hit those twenty one home runs. Is that what happened you to switch to more of that uppercut kind of getting under the ball pretty much not so much getting under the ball just like a slight uppercut and then You know your contact point in the ball is going to determine whether you hit a line drive or ground ball or fly ball so you can still slowing at an uppercut and hit a bunch of line drives. It's just you're just GONNA apart more force on the ball that's fair. So what what was it like being called up for the first time. What obviously getting drafted as a whole different animal? But you know you spend so much time in the minors to achieve that moment. How gratifying was it for you? it was it was pretty incredible. I think when I when I first got told I was in a restaurant and like Somebody mark trump's wife. He was on the Orioles at the time and she texted my wife calls. Me and mark are good buddies She texted my wife saying like Gary just came out of the game. And we're like what and then I got a call from our AAA manager and I just like totally lost. Any appetite left this huge play pasta just sitting on the table didn't even touch. It just paid for it and left immediately. That's crazy and that was very early in the season. Two for one game in right so you came into the came into the season like knowing any any injury. You're coming up but then for it to happen that quickly you're like oh my God like this is crazy right. Yeah it was pretty crazy so you get up come up to the big leagues and you have the distinction of Yo. Yo the Oh for twenty two streak the longest by a position player Yankee to start their career. You turn on that David Price. Bryce homerun Sunday night baseball. What was that like the weight off the shoulders? What's going through your mind is your rounding the pieces just being like? Finally I mean I couldn't even I don't even think I remember running around the basis. The it was I I'll admit is a huge weight off my shoulders because every day you know the the streak got so long that every day somebody who'd be like Oh today's the day and I'd be like all right. Thanks thanks for reminding me. It's nice that it happens on good to get that out of the way it's nice. That happened Sunday baseball. where they amp up the mic so much so when you make contact it sounds like a bombs going off? It's at adds to the awesome of the momento Minto Shadow. ESPN for the baseball. Mike's you yourself. You're a fourth generation Japanese American or third For forthright so you learn the language a few years ago to connect better with your heritage and and Tanaka Genius move so when you're out there on the mound you're having a conversation with a mound visit. Are you speaking Japanese or is it English. What's going on there? Well did you get that off wikipedia. We you may have. You might not not everything I work. PD One hundred percent accurate but we went to the source article. We didn't just use WIKIPEDIA. Went to source article that wikipedia linked we went a little above. And beyond. You set the record straight. I've been trying to learn Japanese apennines but I mean I gotTa tell you. It is very tough translates directly to English. So I'm like I'm like well. How do you say this and and then Shingo will be like you know you know? Say this way and then you know somethin' that involves the same like words but in a different structure. It'll be like trying to rearrange the Japanese words to fit and he'll be like oh it's something completely different so I'm like a as it would be more more beneficial if I was like more immersed and like had to speak at every day right so you're not as fluid as Kapiti makes it seems is basically. We're trying to tell us in fact I'm like it's pretty bad so when you are having a quick conversation with him on the mound is he able to speak English good enough to just just have a conversation with. Yeah okay. 'cause sometimes like in the playoffs we stand together on the plane. So like I would Doc Down Bunch but mixed. Because I know Yankee fans always wonder like at least you have even if it's very basic sick or less than basic understanding of Japanese the fans I was wondering how the Hell to Gary Tanaka say anything on the map like they're totally different languages. Neither of them's like fluent in English. Like excellent. Can't meet in the middle. What what what do they look at each other I mean both of them. It's it's easy to pick up the baseball terms of any language. You're just around so much so in baseball terms arms on. I'm sure they're fine on the mountain together. They can get their point across. I guess it's just an overblown by the Yankees twitter love every time. There's a Tanaka. Gary Mound visit twitter. Like what the hell are they talking about. What's going on here? What's his next pitch going to be What is your relationship like with reminding Gary it just you know being that the third catcher there I mean are you guys close? What's the what's the situation like? We're obviously pretty close me and Roman we you know I would consider all my one of my one of my best friends on the on the squad the past few years. Actually I mean he's been a real good friend of mine every single year that we've been together and spring training too so Because we talk a lot about like pitch sequences and and handling our pitchers and even hitting because he's he's a really smart hitter He's really good at knowing what's coming all the time so Romance definitely a guy. I I talked to a ton. So what about Gary. I'll miss him but Gary Gary to actually speak a lot better Spanish than Japanese. I would say I'm like comparable to maybe like fixer seven-year-old usually say almost fluent they usually say learning the second language the hardest after that easy. I guess that just that did not apply to you this this. We're maybe Japanese just a different different animal. I guess the tackle it seems like Like Italian Spanish French. I like those all have a lot of similarities but Japanese is like totally different. Everything's different Gotcha. Gotcha Gotcha so as close as as you enroll. Mine are good friends. You said you're GONNA miss them. So are you expecting him to go. And then how do you feel about that opening up the backup catcher opportunity for you. Well I I don't know where he's going to land out. I'm just saying as of right now. He's not right right so I mean I guess I guess I worded that a little funky now. We know we know what you mean. But I'm like you know aside from aside from that like. Is there a part of you that you know with the possibility of him going. Is there a part and back your mind words. It's like man like as hard as it is to lose a friend I'd really it'd be awesome at the opportunity to be on the big league club. Yeah I mean I guess there's no getting around the fact that I mean me and him are kind of competing for the same job but You know it it's just about I look at it as you know if if I play well and he plays well. Everything's GonNa work out for both of us in the end. I mean you know. I'm out of options so I have to trust is what I've done is good enough for another team to pick me up if I get the fade or or that I can step into the backup role in New York if I need to If called upon so it's just a you know it's all about performance on the field. Definitely how do you keep your your mind like your mindset because you don't know sometimes if you're going to be on the Yankees or or in triple a. the next day and then you know it's whether you're starting or being a backup catcher. How how do you just keep saying in that type of situation because you could be doing eighteen different things I feel like on any given debt? You know you have no idea what what's coming It can get a little tough mentally sorry voice crack It can get a little tough mentally at times but I did make this like eighties movie. Soundtrack pump up playlists. It was pretty beneficial for me. You know a lot of rocky stuff. Topgun no easy way out. You're a bit you're into like all your huge Rakai from from what I gather. Obviously you know you play Your musician almost as much as you are a baseball player. It seemed like a good. You are or at least from your youtube videos. So you're big into rock and all that right now tile. I'm near He's US boy. I think I got you there. You are clearly okay. Sorry So I was just saying how you're very big into rock you from what I gather if you a Youtube videos you play Mitch instruments and you're very good at him so that makes sense with the whole you creating eighties thing there So you're you're very big. It's Iraq right Yeah that's Kinda my my thing. I'm more of like the eighties you know L. Classic rock slash old school metal guy do ever get to control the oxygen in the clubhouse. I usually get kicked off. Nobody Likes Nobody Likes Judas. Priest stor iron maiden anymore. I couldn't imagine judge judge like hearing that and like this not we. We've got Ever since ever since the dirt came out on Netflix we got we got them to add the Motley crue to play this but there there are few and far between. That's in progress. So when you're cashier behind the plate whose stuff because we have so many talented pitchers and that have just ridiculous us. Moving in a billion different pitches who stuff stands out that just blows you away. Not that like you're going in like Oh crap at the catch guy but like it's just so cool what they can do with the the baseball. Does anyone stand out to you. Yeah I mean I would say my My first start art in New York I had to catch Chapman for the first time ever in a game. Jeez and it was like I was like all right. Well I've caught guys who throw one hundred before but the crazy thing is is champions. Fastball is a hundred and then it it looks like it's one on ten which like you never see that you normally guys throw hundred. It's like It's not that bad. You know you see a decently and and I think the number typically kind of reflect that because nobody will be his numbers like Chappie over the years consistently like that and it's like it's a hundred good with late life. Why do you think that is? I don't know it's got to have to do with like as extension or mechanics or spin. It's been rate something like that but Whatever it is I mean? It's it's totally different. It's probably the most unique fastball. I've I've ever caught soon to name named for this question could be at any level you know high school college or high school. Minor Leagues Majors. What's the biggest argument you've ever gotten into with a pitcher I think in In High School I used is to have when I was I tried to catch. It was all about like making sure that you making sure that you're doing all the thinking for the the pitchers and like you know. Oh pitchers are dumb and all that stuff and so it was like like if they shake you off you. Just keep putting down the same sign and I got. I got into like some battle with one one of her high school pitchers where it was like. I was putting down a sign. I wouldn't budge. And he kept shaking Shit like ten times and eventually I think that he threw what he wanted and the guy got hit and I was in the dugout. I was like you know. I think I'd heads calm like don't ever shake me off again but it's different pro bowl so now. How much does it bother you when a pitcher shakes you offer? Is it like you. What you're in the majors you can do it too? What no not at all Most most of the pitchers who shake They typically they do their homework and they're they know they have a plan and they know what they WanNa do and they know how to execute it so I have no problem with that because as long as you know what you're doing and and you you know we know that you put in the work and you have an idea of what to do. Then it's fine It's some sometimes like in the lower levels of the minors. You get a guy who likes to shake and it's like you ask him why he wanted to throw that pitch later. He has no clue. I WANNA throw it now. That can be a little frustrating but I mean in upper levels that that typically isn't an issue What kind of conversation station you having with hitters at the plate? Do you ever tried to get in their head. Play Mind Games or is it just a friendly conversation usually just friendly conversation yeah I mean I'm a pretty easy going guy Although I do I do appreciate when a guy starts to open up at the plate Talking Wise 'cause then I know he's definitely not focused on hitting but but You know normally just a friendly. What's up are there any hitters throughout the minors or majors words like whenever he come up? You're like all right. This guy is going to be a talker. I gotta get my small talking. I'm ready I'm I'm horrible at small talk so it's just like I just say what's up and if the guy wants to talk and I'm like all right you can you can And not yeah not focused on hitting if you want but sometimes you get a little. It's a little intimidating the dating. If a if if you say what's up guys just like stonewalls. You doesn't say anything all my God. This guy's locked in got alpha. Shoot do you ever get getting. Do you ever get annoyed. I know this pet peeve of catchers out there when a guy will tap his bat on your KNEEPADS ever like. Did you ever get bothered with that or doesn't you don't care about. I thought usually it's like all right buddy okay like I'm not I'm not back here to like. Do you any favors. So I don't know what you're like showing appreciation towards me for okay. So the answer's yes you do get bothered by this so it's just like Oh okay. Yeah let's say that bothers you and then I don't know if someone gets hit by pitch or something there's a flip you know if you're up in a brawl. Are you mask on mask off You know that's a good question I I haven't like really had an opportunity to be behind the plate for for a brawl. I I would. I would assume that the mass stays on. 'cause I mean you can't just give up your your greatest advantage over your opponent. It's a good point the face protection. I don't hate that at all. Actually that's not. I never really thought about that from a catcher's perspective like yeah like I have an advantage. You don't yeah. I mean when Iraq pushed very take I mean probably didn't even faze because he just hit him right in the mask that's fair. We're so used as inky fans fucked Varitek for even as a mascot but now we're hearing the Catra Saad of it's like well. Why would you take it up? Yeah so the Group of guys you might get into a little scuffle with next year. I'd imagine it'll be some tensions they reside in Houston. What's your overall thought of like what's going on with all that stuff I mean it's it's a little disappointing. I don't know I I don't know if I should be like talking that much about it because I you know I don't know what's happening. I don't know so if you know it seems like there's a lot of evidence but you know we say fuck the Astros for you speak. I'll uh-huh speak when when the final verdict has been made. Okay I I think your hand across yeah I think that's the whole teams basically consensus sensus opinion. Disappointing for sure. Yeah So other guys. I know you mentioned close with role. Mine talk men. Who are like you know your go-to guys on the a team you've any we've asked US different players popping group chest within the Yankees team at where it's like? I don't know maybe five or you guys talking shop all the time Well me me Cami. And and auto have a group chat. That's all about Fee for ultimate team. Okay we're for pretty big into into Feta and then sometimes it it. It goes into college duty which we're also on but I mean you know it's it's a great group of guys there's just for I mean for what I've scene everyone gets along really well with everyone and and I also have a chat with with Shingo and Masa interest On this like APP that I guess is popular in Japan. Gotcha so how are you talking in that though usually in in English or like the the few Japanese words I know Gotcha that would be a group chat that flashes. Oh no here we go. What's going to happen to it'd be like a shingle translate this and then I'll say something and then he'll like I don't know I think sometimes he's like right next to Moscow so so he'll just like tell them translate it for me? Gotcha so you mentioned to me when you're in the city with talk man you guys like to go the top pizzas spots after you see Dave's views what. Oh Yeah you have like a number one that comes to mind and you know like are you. Are you big pizza guy. I Love Pizza I mean I don't eat it that often. Just 'cause I'm supposed to take care of myself but Pizzas like you know the top three favorite food for me so once I discovered the one byte APP it was it was game over like mean Dave. We usually have similar tastes in N.. Pizza like I like the coal fired pizza. I don't like it to be like too mushy New York flossy. It's it's good but like I like you know Kinda be outside towards the crust to get a little crispier Sometimes it's hard to get the center crispy you know for sure. Is there one in New York that stands out to do we. We went to Lazaros. Okay which was like I think he raided like a nine point three or something and it's it's like a rectangular pizza is crazy but it was really good. Yeah I I actually need to check that out. I haven't heard of it. I just haven't tried it yet but like you. You walk through this hallway Kind of looks like it could be a mob place. Yeah I think I've been I been outside of it or so. Basically I'm getting pizza. Bernard basically severance going so December mid December. You've got a few more months until you know. Spring training gets underway. What's a typical offseason day like? Let's say when you're back in California now what's a typical day like for you. Oh I actually live in Oregon. Okay Gotcha so what's a typical day like in in Oregon Well get up. Eat something and then go to the gym around nine Our workouts are actually pretty long so a lot of times they'll be like to to sometimes like almost three hours of lifting but the IT encompasses a lot a lot of mobility stuff You know incorporated into lifting as well so that that's Kinda what takes a lot of time to is just getting all that stuff and then I'll go and there's a couple other position players working out whether me so well I throw With the the Pitcher who is working out with me then go hit grab some lunch And then I'm pretty much free for the rest of the day in. which is you know? That's that's probably around two o'clock well. How do you spend some of that down time? Ideally any shows you're into binging anything I just finished the man the high castle on Amazon. That's pretty crazy one. I got to get into that. I haven't seen it. It's it's it's like Kinda Sci fi you don't think so at first but it becomes Sifi. Are you onto watchmen. Sounds like up your alley. If you're in like sign all that she not yet No I heard it's good I don't have HBO thing. I like cancelled after. The game of thrones season disappointed I I knew that I was going to be disappointed so I wasn't as disappointed as people who were expecting like the. You know the finale Elliot all Finales. I was like I was like. There's no way to end the show well because it it's been so good that like to get from where you we started after the end of season seven to the end of season eight. There's like really like six episodes so it was like I was like that could've taken like two seasons to go through so I think it was just a little rushed and once I knew that there was the only six episodes I was like. We're probably going to get disappointed the key to life. You just keep expectations low for everything. Because that's what we're doing call right now so. Hopefully that works for us like in my mind Yankee just a few more things before we wrap up here the forefinger celebration you guys did it all year now that the season he's in his over can you tell us what the root of that is i. I'm still not at liberty to say. dammit he has good. Would you go to keep it secret better. Now maybe I need to like be terminally ill some. We'll tell me vacant ticket. Fake a terminal illness. Yeah he only wants one thing Kyle you didn't get hurt last year. What's your secret? What can you tell everyone how how to do that? In Twenty Twenty I do a lot of you know. Preventative and corrective exercises sizes to kind of help eliminate soft tissue injuries. But I mean it's also luck You know if if you get a freak injury like a broken bone or something get hit by a pitch. You can't really help that So I mean I guess I was just lucky last year but I do a lot of stuff to take care of my body to try to make sure that I'm always you know at least good enough to play because that's catchers I mean I'm sure you can imagine or never really maybe the first day of the season but you and then we're we're usually never really one hundred percent. Yeah you guys take a beating by the play for sure But like experiencing that many injuries like from a guy who's healthy where you just like in disbelief like this can't possibly keep happening and then it just did every single day. Every single month of the year there was a point where I was like. WE'RE GONNA run out of spots on the forty Matt Roster because we're going to have anybody to call up. I think there's one point I was like the only forty man guy in triple A. Maybe one or two and it was like well. If if shortstop or outfielder something gets hurt I might be going up as the third catcher. Yeah that's crazy last question here. We were going to start asking everybody this moving forward. Kyle have you ever met Jacoby Ellsbury. I don't think too. Many people on the team can void or Labor. Ever Mitch Koby Ellsbury. I don't think they have no. I mean those. Those guys are are newer. Guys they are but they're not the time I was. I was with the team when when he was active. So okay I can claim lay claim to have having met him like a secret club or like just like I don't know the eight of you. Who actually they got to meet him? It'd be like we are the people who had the honor and privilege of meeting to Kobe. Ellsbury I actually went back and saw your first ever appearance the Big Leagues as you come in and row minds playing I and Jacoby catches the first at that. The first batter hits a fly out. And it's like this is so bizarre world situation here we've got romance I you Kobe playing just just a crazy situation. Unbelievable it's been a it's been a while right for you man but if things break the way they look like they're going to look so you're going to be the primary backup catcher heading at twenty twenty and hopefully you're catching Garrett Cole on a bunch of others as we go win the World Series Kyle. Thank you so much for taking the time to come out with Come on with us and all the best the off season and we look forward to seeing you in spring attorney and Oprah thank you thanks so thank you colleague Yogurt coming out. I feel like well. We'll talk to him throughout the season. The Nice Guy Actually texted me. He was honored. Come on the show. Wow honored also I like that. He said he like listened to researchers very smart I don't know if that officially was in the interview But he I'd like I might have been before he started. He was like yeah. I listen to a couple of associates. Obviously what I was getting started off with something that we never got. He goes which ones hubs semi. I spoke and he goes. Yeah that was. That was an honor. Kyle I also love the hypnotize. Just go on they use the one by apnea true Stoli's and I think Kyle's more to it than than talk men but I loved it there. You know the very ingrained to all this and then you know down the one by APP also. It's one of the best apps you could have So so before. So we're wrapping up here. We have a big meeting with the whole company with a wrap this up rather quickly but before we DM's because we know oh you guys have some questions for Garrett Cole and all that before your DM's.

We gotta be on a different level because now we're going to be champions because we've got a call Um I'm now. TJ Our producer. What's up baby? Let's get so I don't know the first one so hungry. I haven't eaten all day through to forty five. I was Ethan looper Berkeley said Is Andy Pettitte now in the conversation for greatest Yankee ever for his hall of fame career as well as bringing a scary cool. When you talk about like Yankee Rush Mount Rushmore Andy? PETTITTE S- right at the top now definitely pitching wise Like does this. He's ahead of Roger Clemens. I think he was already playoff greatness. I mean not like overall as a pitcher clemens better but like in terms of Yankee Ler pet obviously marietto yet whitey Ford Ted. It C- she might climb in their Garrett Cole. Wrong Gigiri a Java yeah. Nestor did sacrifice for he died. I yeah what a martyr next one's from Mike Right he said why the hell can I not by Kohl Yankee Jersey. I get that they're not printed yet. But it's prohibiting me from even customizing Colt Forty Five Jersey just just where does get the forty five number. Don't wear her. Don't put a name on. Yeah he's going to be the last forty five Nikki history about that and you can also say it's a look like what are you doing. Oh we didn't talk about the Nike Symbol at all in your thoughts on that I not as bad as everyone else likes like I know it's like oh I are. You sure we didn't talk. We didn't talk about but it's like look By by May people are going to forget that it's even there when Kerr Calls Pitching Fifteen Strelka game do won't care that if you're waiting okay. You still got the pin Friday. I think the problem would be when they go to to like patch like company passes and Shit. Yeah that would be which I don't think the Yankees might. I don't think they'll do it. Those big we don't need the money the money in the world yeah. I don't know how that'll the Nike anything was a mandate for the league. It's a deal through a major league baseball title Yankees Call Philip the patches individual patches would be an individual teams call like the razor probably going to have have patches down the whole Jersey. Because they're trying to get to both like who wants to buy like wants to advertise on the true true but yeah figure Yankees won't be involved but I don't know I there's things I get mad about metal but a lot of things the Nike Symbol. Just I know it's like the tradition all that and I get that but like doc it's an MLB thing it's it's just part you'll you'll forget it's there after the second week it. Also like Nike itself is pretty iconic like. It's not like it's a random. Ask Company that you put on there like the Nike swoosh is. It's legit. Yeah I'm only mad. There's no chance that we get like a cool throwback Jersey like some of these other teams are getting like the brewers. We'll just be without the Nike Logo. Twenty eighteen throwbacks throwback Jersey will be just not sponsoring okay. It's like every redesign Nike's done has been like sick. They look like College Jersey. Some people say but I think they cool like if we were if they did something with like the Yankees top hat logo. And I'm talking uh-huh yeah they'd never do anything it would pay some. I just do an alternative I love the Black Jerseys. I became the players like everyone look Slim like the Alternate Jersey like once a month or just like a navy talk or something like that. We're in spring training people by Next one's from stone-cold Nick E said. I know that this is probably a very simple question. But where do you see Jay Ahab fitting in the rotation if at all where can we get the best value in return for Jay. How will be traded rated very soon does not many said that for so long? There's just no way Jay hops on his team last contract and all that they're going to detach prospect or something he will not be on the Yankees. No point even thinking about that. We're talking about next move. I think that's the next move although I'm GonNA maintain your you're more confident. He's gone than I am. One hundred percent. There's no chance I'M GONNA say seventy five percent chance he's gone. I just I could see them be like you know what is the fifth starter will keep them. And you know we don't want to give up an asset ours though Jordan. Montgomery Yeah. I know I'm and just be even less than before And he's like he would have been. I think the second lowest era from a couple years ago. He would have the second on the team last year. So George. I think it's definitely more likely that he's gone. But if you can't find a good match I can see them saying we don't WanNa dump an asset just to shed salary. TJ's Da- just tweeted tweeted. I me someday you pretty small shows and get an extra looks and hope you think of your dear old dad. So he's talking about Grenell got a rolex for his producer gift teacher. You're not getting a Raleigh. We call so you know we were GonNa get him oral accent and like the surprises spoilt so we cancelled that gets and we got Gary Cole- cigarettes it has a better gift. It's more expensive anyway. Yeah we we did our part we we did as much as we can. Thank you Let's do warm wars from the Sawyer and sal now show They said what's the betting odds be that coal throws a no hitter against the orioles this season. And what are the odds that he wins. Twenty five plus Games. Well wait a whole. Pull this up this odds on him. Let's go through this real quick. What's more likely no hitter or twenty five plus wins? I think I'll tell L.. U. There's literally odds on these things right now. So that's that's up there twenty. I feel pretty confident twenty. I'm taking twenty. Where do I go to find this? A Long Baseba- Someone just talk for a second. They have Here Yankee so that's actually cool so when you GonNa Fan Duel under baseball. It has world series odds and just Yankee Specials Charles. Oh Wow I love that. So Yankee wins for twenty twenty is one on one and a half. That's their over under sir. Honestly over vendors are so conservative usually so last year was ninety six and a half right and so this year I think during the playoffs they released it was ninety seven and a half and then when call sign was one hundred in half and they should immediately had to go to one and probably a good thing. One hundred three last year with injuries without Garrett Cole minus one fifteen over one last week a fucking grand on last week crops things are going to hundred fifteen games. Yeah or whatever one hundred ten like thirty guys on the no Garrett Cole or several of the whole so you're like what are we talking about here. Why don't want and a half so the GIRKA strike? Also Terry up here is we do have this meeting and go to One hundred eighty and a half strikeouts any six last year. That's a little less guarantee beloved. Now that's less guaranteed because thirty thousand six hundred twenty eighteen yet less than for over over under though or like some people like it used to be said Since baseball a lot harder to strike outs became more and more up but two hundred used to be a great year. Right he's over. There's two eighty win total seventeen and a half pound that over think. So yeah yeah I mean it's never lost a game where he's at five in which pretty cool right like teams scored more than five run like team winning team going twenty two and four two point eight two. Era Three hundred four strikeouts. It's Okay I love that When the AL CY young as plus four fifty so low? What is it plus four fifty win the CY young? Yeah that's not that's not a great thrown no hitters plus twenty five hundred. I love that I throw no hitter with map lake. Yeah and then fifteen Games minus one thirty five the factor. That's minus is Hilarious hilarious and have a twenty Shrek Games plus a thousand. I like the I fifteen a pretty good bet. I think the Yankees over one and a half is it's just laughable and if that's the highest I think to throw a no hitter plus twenty five hundred is a is a solid throw like ten to twenty bucks on that. Yeah Nice Nice. Bet They're happy Garrett Cole they everybody The Yankees are the fucking empire. Once again we have our prince that was promised most everything is great. The world is great. You guys have a great holiday. You guys we're GonNa talk to you again. That'd be after Christmas. Well beyond you'll be we'll you'll hear from us again down on the twenty six today. We thought we get the episode out a little earlier. So you'll hear from a day early but I was on the twenty six so everyone have a great holiday out there. Happy Hannukah happy. Merry Christmas. It's going to be a great time gear calls Yankee and the world is back to where it should be. That's short porch. Oh there's a John Sterling you. You're listening to short porch Byproduct of Barstool sports thank is GonNa be Eleven Lebron night so we can do whatever you like. Hey Hey it's me. Our data find some races.

That's nine plus US dot com the number nine pl US US dot com nine plus US dot com. We hope you enjoyed this episode of the baseball together. podcast brought to Hubei nine plus US look up to this week's episode of the baseball together. PODCAST baseball family. I am Brad and as always I am joined by Brig. What up baseball family so we have a whole lot to talk about this week there? This week was a whirlwind a wind with the winter meetings right like every single day. There's something new whether it was a rule change Somebody signing signing like. I honestly didn't think we're GONNA see these these. Boris guys sign until after the New Year. I thought it was a lot longer but I guess I guess. He learned his lesson the last year with the Bryce Harper all of them. The dollar amount isn't GONNA go up when we get into spring training okay. Let's go ahead and get them signed strike while the iron hot right right. Yeah totally. So let's start there. I'll start there so we have Stephen Strasburg Gut seven years. Two hundred and forty five million dollars which t I thought was funny. Because that was the initial offer from the Yankees for Garrett Cole yet which obviously that number didn't come from anywhere right the fact that it's actually the same. Yeah yeah out of the Blue Really. Oh Yeah I know. What a coincidence that Stephen Strasburg? That's the exact ZAC same amount of money that Garrett Cole was offered by the Yankees I don't know but I thought that was a good job by the nats They need to keep Strasbourg prosper. Granted and you know this whole time. I figured Strasbourg would stay. And I didn't. I thought he'd leave are really. Yeah and see like like for me. I don't know a whole lot about Stephen Strasburg But watching that the interview with him with When he when he was named the world series? MVP right the very end. Yeah yes this guy doesn't seem like he has the personality he wants to go chase the big bucks at chase. All the fame. Fortunate comes with playing in New York or your true l. a. or anything like he seems like a down to Earth homebody who's like comfortable he's got roots and in Washington and probably wants to stay there. That's kind of the kind of the vibe I got from him. I don't know if anybody else offered but he that's kind of what he seemed like to me. That's why I thought he was gonNA stay. He looked at the car they gave him like one time it was like Oh yeah cool things and then okay. I would've heard a truck but whatever. Yeah right yeah. That's what I was gonNA say the truck. Where's the pickup four by four? That's exactly what I was GONNA say. Yeah that's hilarious. Does it come in real tree. Can I don't know if he's that kind of guy but I guess Cammo on that. Yeah that's exactly how it felt it is it is really fill. His wife didn't didn't care here. I know I pretty cool. Yeah so let's. That's really why I wasn't surprised that he left or that. He stayed because Yeah he just just seemed like he's he's comfortable and just kind of does his thing. Yeah yeah I I make sense. I just thought he'd end up somewhere else because the nats were getting rid of everybody well and I not everybody Eddie but well. They said that they weren't gonNA keep Strasbourg and ran down and honestly the smarter play. I mean as much as I like Stephen Strasburg in his great as great as he is the smarter play would have been to keep random. Because I mean it's everybody's been saying and this is what I thought too is that about age is better than than in an arm furture early so I mean seven years from now. STRASBERG'S GONNA be. What thirty eight I think And and and yes in other than that in that range. Yeah they're they're getting their value on the front of the contract and then paying for loyalty later but at the same time I mean. We've I've seen what's happened to Clayton Kershaw. We've seen what happened Felix Hernandez that. It's not pretty as well as those older. It really is not pretty so that that could be some trouble for eh but for now you know. They've got a good arm to anchor. While I'm not just anchor but to pitch side by side with the Max Sherzer. Yeah you know so. Yep It'll be interesting guy. Yeah Yeah Yeah I for sure so you bring up a good a bunch of good arguments does that translate over to the Garrett Cole conversation about bats aging better than arms and How ugly can get over long periods of time mm-hmm and what in the name have all that is holy or whatever for what who we should come up with a slur we? Should there should be a slur specifically for situations like the Garrett Cole deal I don't even yeah All like on on that one that commercial longtime ago no making up. Words burkle fickle. Look I allies What was it nine years for? Three twenty four. Yeah nine three hundred and twenty four million dollars. That is so much money. One of my favorite shows growing up was was wings did you ever watch wings. Sure so anyway. There's an episode. Where one of the guys he's like? I'm hypnotists hypnotize. Anybody and so. They're going around in room and he hypnotizing brother. Anytime somebody says tortillas he has the ESTA Khelakhlia Chicken. So then there's another guy who thinks he gets. He goes along with the plays like he got Like hit hypnotize then. He says that he robbed a bank. And the money's hidden in his backyard. Like how much is it. He says like two million dollars just like that and the guy goes so. That's a Lotta tortillas so anytime anybody talks about a lot of money and my first thought is that's a lot of Tortillas so so Garrett Cole got a lot of Tortillas He gets a lot of Tortillas I that's too much though now it's too much too. It's too long a contract so like we have to talk about it in separate terms we have to talk about it. In terms of dollars we also have talked about in terms of the years of production. He'll be able to give because nine years for guys twenty nine. I put them. They'll be thirty eight. It's the same. Yeah it's it's the same in and everybody's like we're looking at another Kennedy Sabathia deal and I'm like man we help. It's yeah well yeah so. I was magnificent for a long time. He was Major contributor major role anchored that rotation forever but then at the end. It's I'm like well you know we still have to pay him. Yeah exactly and It's yeah I don't know it doesn't make any sense to me. Seven years got it. He the guy for seven years. Oh especially twenty nine. Yes it's a great make sense. Yeah the yeah. It's too bad that he didn't take that offer initially because now the Yankee is kind of like go yeah and I wonder how many other teams around the league were willing to go nine years for him or the Yankees were bidding against themselves because the Yankees often bid against themselves. It's true they do but you know there's all that talk about how he wants to go back to California alf ornate he pitched he played a UCLA's from the west coast. Like that doesn't mean anything. Now you know like these guys are traveling all over the all over the country for you know at their home for eighty one games is all but then they're right basically home for a week away for two or three at a time. Yeah but I mean he only spent so much time at home during the off season you can live wherever you want. Because his wife I think they live in Vegas during the offseason. I think thanks so I I it just. It doesn't make sense for many people. Oh He's from there he's GonNa WanNa go home. Not Necessarily because obviously the Garrett Cole is a guy who was chasing fame fortune and I felt that was evidenced by the fact. He's wearing that Scott Boras hat and the post press conference. I am not employed employed by the Houston Astros or by the team or whatever say a yeah exactly. The his. We always saw his loyalty was it was to his agent and to his wallet all it and yet I'm not surprised. He took the the highest offer at all. No no but but what on a Miami. If they offered him that much money it totally totally. But what in the crap are we doing do with a nine year contract. I just think it was foolish for nine nine years. I don't care that they paid him three twenty four. I'm just upset about the nine years leases not thirteen years. No see seriously seriously I had that same thought I was like well. It could be where It could be worse now zo. All of this is happening because of the upcoming collective bargaining agreement. We've we've talked about this a million times this this is. This is Scott. Boris and these players mm seeing the writing on the wall because it in one year from now this may never be possible ever again and to be honest to help. It's it's not every possible ever again I do too. This is out of control. It is out of control. It's it's one of these things where the owners almost need to be protected from themselves but also it's Scott Boras running amok and he's ruining like I want to say he's ruining the League but financially he is. He's handcuffed uncut. He's definitely whoring up the market. Yeah he is and but the thing is you don't see many other agents doing the same thing like yeah. Manny Machado. got a bunch of money last year breath like he was pretty much worth it. I mean he's he's great. Offense will be great defensively. Mike Trout got that massive deal after Bryce. Bryce Harper signed his. which that's that's still a bargain for the angels by the way Still yes. He is a once in a generation player. He's the best player in baseball. It's going to be longtime before. We see anybody like him again. I think agreed So but those are those are two guys who are not Boris clients who got massive deals. And we don't seat with anybody else. Yeah you know. It's it's his fault it's his fault break. It's his fault it's Scott's fault Brad. I agree with you. Kill the beast. Get Your pitchfork. We should we. Should participate works out. No but another don. Yeah good for him. I mean is I was. I was thinking to myself as I just pictured him as he did as deals are coming and we'll get to Ren donut a minute but as they're coming in a pictured should him in a hotel room with like with just sitting there at the table on the phone earlier on speakerphone. You know it's like you know I don't know it might not be enough and flipping through the pages of like Like a design book that has like rapes and carpet and skin and wall. Oh Yeah for the wall. Just like deciding what he's going to do when he remodels this guest house with all that money eared forty million dollars this week. Yeah district million. I saw a graphic yesterday that said that I think he posted love EP group or maybe your wife noted that lay John. Bell sat out an entire season just so he could sign a deal that was worth in whole thirty five million dollars. That's right these. These guys agent got forty this week. Yep It's insane. It's insane so let before we move on from Garrett Cole. My wife posted this amazing breakdown of game of Gary Cole's numbers and what the dollar amount equates to with my computer pewter will pull its head out and show me the money then I will be able to do this I every time I think of Scott Boras I think of Jerry Maguire. I can't I can't sir good reason for good the reason and so funny. That's just what I imagine him being like. I don't know I'm sure that's starts every negotiation showing the money. Show me the money. Oh Oh yeah totally okay so Garrett Cole with his nine year three hundred twenty four million dollar contract if we take his twenty nineteen performance he would be making one point nine million dollars per start. Excuse me one point zero nine one point zero nine million purse start at every five. He would make that much money right. He makes over one hundred sixty nine thousand dollars. There's per inning pitched he makes over one hundred ten thousand dollars per strikeout hundred ten thousand dollars just for strikeout. He is GonNa make almost ten thousand dollars per pitch thrown. It's nine thousand two hundred dollars just to throw a pitch if you so if he repeats his performance so he anyway. Here's what I think here. No no he won't. Here's here's what I think's happening is is going to happen. We are going to get we. I the collective we in New York fans we're GONNA get Out of the nine nine years. I hope we get five. Well I mean I hope we get nine but if I'm being realistic I expect five really good years out of him. I hope it starts in twenty twenty. I don't know that it will And then there's GonNa be potential for injury and and and then he's GonNa fall off all his stuff's GONNA lose. It's it's magic at the end of this contract and then he's GonNa sit there and hopefully hopefully hopefully he will find a loyalty. Hopefully nine years will give him enough time to be a clubhouse guy and a cohesion guy and a leader so that he can lead the way. CC DID IT at the end of his contract so that he can be in the clubhouse and be a presence. That's the same thing I hope for Bryce Harper. It's the same thing I hope for Mike Trout and and all of these guys like as they mature. I need no I need. I need Dustin Pedroia from these guys right like I need a guy who can who can carry the banner but isn't playing all the time right. Yeah and the thing is though is i. Don't know if Gary Cole's that guy he hasn't seemed like he has been that's what I'm saying. Is I find it. Arteries in the pirates were so eager to trade him when they did And the Astros and I don't know if there was like some kind of fractured I should relationship with the Astros because they didn't use him in that in game seven of the world series. But maybe there's we've got verlinden. We've got cranky were we. Don't need him in our in our clubhouse they did get snubbed for sure. Yeah they came in as that they came in as that quote unquote mystery team later. But I don't know I don't know yeah it's all very interesting but let's go ahead and move on from From Jericho Onto Anthony. And don't who actually got the same deal as Stephen Strasburg aspect his was with the angels Oh Baby Mutnansky raised that that the angels Guy Him and part of it is because you know Joe Madden he was saying they needed to make a splashy signing but also about what was it about twenty four hours before that deal was done they cleared cap space. They traded away. The traded take a closer their third baseman. The train another. I think it might have been a minor league infielder. I didn't recognize the name but they got all the back was cash straight cash. Tell me that's all. They got back texted. You and I was like it's happening. It's going to happen. Yes and on to the angels. Because I saw that deal and I was like and then sure enough. Jeff it's the same thing The Nice thing for the angels is that it's not the pools deal like that's right. You have. Obviously he's got about this. He's got more money than pools got at the time but given the market Yeah it's it's less you know less years there's I think it will work out better for him. Because he's he's still in his prime pools in his prime when he got to Anaheim true story they were signing signing legacy player and I heard that was a big thing with him to why he signed there because they said okay. Let's focus on your legacy. And that's why. He went there the Randolph School Ren Endorse can still be a major contributor to the Tino daily. Yeah absolutely and that's offensively defensively everything. That's a big thing too is daily daily contributor is that they're not paying every five days for him to go out there induce thing they're paying for right. Probably hit behind Mike Trout protect him. So you're not gonna get walked as much. He's going to get pitches to hit which you know I could do wonders for that team offensively. Yeah you're you're right well Tommy Stella's in there now too. So yeah it's fine. It's time it's time that the angels built this team and they've got the right guy lead them to do it so I'm excited. Is that team. They have a good. They have a really good infield. I mean they've got now. They've got doughnut third. They've got and drought and Simmons at shortstop. And you May. WHO's also at second? That's good infield. The problem is they're totalling pulling ooh what that pitching I mean if Otani can come up can be anything like he was before Tj. Before Tommy. John I mean that's that's that's a good start but had you've gotta figure something out that pitching staff 'cause it'll come together. Yeah they they. Here's something we don't. Yeah Yeah they've got some pretty good prospects from what I understand. I don't know the prospects. Are you know that's not. Asher thing. Ever fickle yeah totally fickle. That's a perfect way to describe it. That is a perfect way to describe prospects of fickle. WHO's to say it's a gamble? Oh for sure speaking of gambling so major league baseball will no longer be testing for marijuana right and Is that a gamble. Brad what do you think No I don't think it's a gamble Because everybody's doing are doing already anyway MHM and We've seen and there's been studies approved. Safer than opioids. Oh yeah pay management at totally and we see exhibit with Tyler skaggs what happened there with opioids and this is something that that I heard this week. I listen to David. Samson's Samson's podcasts It's nothing personal everyday and one of the things he talked about. This is that And I don't know I don't remember if he he said this is the way it should be or this is the way it's going to be That if somebody does test positive for opioids they're going to go into treatment program. Instead of suspension. I mean obviously suspension will be part of it but I think they'll still be getting paid as though they were on like on the I l. Ram. But they're going to go into a treatment program because Major League Baseball does not want. That does not want that to happen again. Yeah absolutely this is another thing he talked about. This is a big thing and this is what I assumed soon was the case and he confirmed it for me so in like the fifties and sixties and we heard a lot about greenies in clubhouse for sure guys running phetamine ETA means and it's because the season is so growing. It's long you're going back to back. You're playing a game on Saturday night and you're going back and playing a day game on Sunday. That's exhausting game where you have to be focused or you're not gonna hit the ball being filled the ball and see. You could get hurt if you can't focus you know so so that's why it was so common but you know they got rid of. They got rid of the greenies quote unquote mostly. I don't know I'm sure there's some guys who are still taking them. Sure but now it's been replaced by energy drinks that basically they've got vending machines club houses that are stocked full of energy drinks and guys just drinking. I'm left right which you know I I. I'm apparently yeah you know and totally. Yeah but the thing that's hard is if you're all jacked up on an energy. She drink for a four hour baseball game. And then the game's over at eleven thirty you want to go home and get some sleep enough. Yes super nope absolutely so. Oh so then you take a Downer right. Yep exactly what kind of down or are you gonNA take while there's Ambien which Danville Right You've got opio. It's horrible choice or marijuana you can smoke it or you can eat it. Y- you know and and we know there's a lot of guys and Major League Baseball. I'm sure it's not as common as it used to be WHO SMOKE CIGARETTES ANYWAY? Sure you know and and we see we see him in the NBA this year which is in the last couple of weeks. The edibles are pretty common in the NBA. It's going you know. Maybe that's the thing that guys turned to. Maybe they just have them available in the clubhouse depending on how it'd be interesting in the Rockies I just have a bowl of edible gummy bears and you know marijuana gummy bears they grab a handful pop them and take an uber home. Go to sleep. I don't know there you uh-huh yeah I don't know but I do feel like and I'm probably there's probably going to be a lot of people who disagree with me but I feel like it is a much safer option and a and a better option than especially since you can. You can still dose it out you know you know. Say Hey fellas no more than two gummy bears. We saw happy dion waiters. And for those of you know he ate too many too mini. Gummy bears or something like that in the pack and he ended up having a seizure. So there you've got precedence for this is why you don't take many of these things right but an minor thing too is that marijuana's not a not a performance enhancer. Yeah no totally right like you're you don't WANNA go up to the plate high because because you will be in the catcher's glove and then you'll start swinging that episode that when the grab bag. Would you in Quin. And we're talking in slow Mo.. Yeah exactly exactly right. Yeah what do you think about this break. I mean obviously I have a lot of a lot of thoughts and opinions on this this but what do you think about it I I agree with you on that performance. Enhancing part of it. It doesn't even factor into the conversation. Yeah so no issue there It's already happening so like there's that rain you gotta you gotTa manage manage the the reality from organization standpoint but Then the the third point I'll make is that I agree with you that it is a better pain management tool. I would assume I have no experience with marijuana myself personally although I I I would love to have that experience. It's not legal where I am and I spent so much time in the army it was not legal for that either so but I deal with pain. Chronic chronic chronic pain every day. So I I think about it I hear about it a lot of. It's it's in a lot of conversation and and And I refuse to take a opiate pain medication and even when I had my both my back surgeries I was very sort of A conservative not even close to the right word. I mean I just sat there and suffered instead of taking pink opiate painkillers. Because I just wasn't gonNA give my life over to an addiction like that so So I you know from the pain management side of things I say eight Super Super Duper. What am I trying to say? Yes like it makes sense a sense but but there is a growing body of evidence since that marijuana causes brain damage and and I you know I worry about that for for me for the players. Anybody you know. It doesn't matter who you are And so here we are with these guys signed nine year deals and if now marijuana is tacitly accepted by removing the you know the punishment for using it then. I think that we're going to see you know. Potentially these guys performance get worse sooner. So and that will devalue the product and that will value the experience for the fans and it will we'll We'll be financial burden on the teams etcetera etcetera. So I You know that's my biggest concern. I also think though we're going to see a lot of guys just continue to not participate and partake because these are performance athletes. They're they're obsessed assessed with being the best and in one personality that translates to smoking a Doobie or eaten a gummy bear. Or whatever but in another guy. It's going to translate translate into absolute abstinence and avoidance. So I don't know I think that I think it depends on the situation. It's probably a case by case thing. Obviously pain plays a big role in that conversation from guy to guy and I'm interested to see what happens of course I also also think we'll never know true right right especially since they're not testing for it. We're not going to really find out and I totally agree with you. That anybody who's using it is going to continue to use it. Anybody who's not is probably going to continue to not write some margin guys will go back forth but that's yeah. Yeah and and here's the thing too is if you are if you're not one of those nine year guys seven-year guys have near deal guys if if you are taking if you're using it too much and your performance dips near somebody right behind you in the minor leagues who didn't come up and take your spot. Yup You know an and that's something they're not afraid to do with major league baseball small like yeah. They've got guaranteed contracts but at the same time some in the league minimum is like five hundred thousand dollars which is a dip. The bucket for these guys are making you know so yeah like yes. Sent him by the wayside. Pay Him DFA Him cut him. Whatever sent him down to the minors and just bring somebody up at his place? WHO's making the same amount of money or maybe yeah the I guess the League minimum? WHO's making same out of money? WHO's not eating? gummy bear the smoke. It too much. We yeah we saw that with Jacoby Ellsbury he's on the payroll for a real long time doing a whole lot of nothing. Yeah exactly and it's just like well. It is what it is but we deal with it and we'll get you know. Yeah so they do. They will replace you even if they have to still pay you. Yeah no it's absolutely true and I wonder if this'll be something that will come up in the in the collective bargaining agreement saying okay. We're going to let you guys use marijuana as far as pain management A. I'm a cool down after a game. Whatever however we can't be stuck in these contracts with these players who are abusing it? Because we're not going to test for it. But if we got guys abusing in their in their Their performance dips because of it. We got to have an out. We can't have these guys on the payroll for ten years so salary cap cap on contracts plea to do something about it to help with it and I really wonder if that's something that's GonNa come in the collective bargaining agreement that they're gonNA have their separate ships and this is one one is a bone the MLB is throwing the players association. Saying okay you can have this but we want this in return when the time comes. Let's all be reasonable. Yeah totally so we can only hope for that where he here's hoping for that salary cap because electro my gosh acts threshold is obviously not enough. But it's not working. Yeah not not not even a little bit so we need a salary cap some fierce and you know who needs to be the Commissioner Baseball's Bob Costas. Yes we we haven't have. We haven't talked about the book thing re yet we will. We'll do an episode on our favorite books on baseball. But for those of you listening. If you've not read fair ball by Bob Bob Costas I implore you to give it a read. Just suggest listened to him. Just see what he has to say because he's got some ideas is that I think would change the face of baseball for the better. I agree I will say some of it doesn't age. Well as far as the the playoff race and stuff but the majority Jordan of that book ages very well and he brings up very good points. So yeah there's a little teaser for you. We'll talk about here I think it's on the docket to come up here. Pretty soon Yeah it'll be great but yes we'll go ahead and go through that but let's go ahead and we'll take a short break and when we come back we've got some mail bag questions that we're going to answer for are you. Hey I'm headed to concessions. Do you want me to grab something. Yeah anything whatever. You're getting okay. I saw Burger. I'll probably grab that no well. That doesn't sound good okay. I think there's barbecue probably nachos I don't think I want either of those either But just give me anything. What do you want I hot dog earlier? Okay I can do that well. No couples may quarrel but baseball is for lovers. Shop the lovers collection and nine plus dot com Welcome back baseball family Now that we've had such a wonderful time away we're back and we we are going to get into one of our favorite segments. Is The mail bag bag. I love it I have so much fun with the mailbag too. So let's start with this on. This has actually been sitting in my in my inbox for a long time. been waiting when Wade into this. This is from Jason Douglas. Tino you know He says let's take old school here. What was your main team in youth baseball? Not Every League is affiliated with Little League World Series who were your team's rivals and favourite memory. Break you go ahead and start us off at this because I know my answer And I can go on a great depths as that but you go ahead and start us off start with Your your Your main team like what was like either the team that you were for years or your favorite team that you played for. Yeah so so we some reason I always ended up playing for the diamondbacks. Oh Nice 'cause we had the MLB affiliated System System was minor league or the no back that it was literally right. So yeah so we were. We had the affiliates and we-were I was I was on the diamondbacks like two or three years. I played for the Florida. Marlins a couple of years live with the Marlins one year. Yeah I played. I played for the braves one year and It's it was really funny because Owen was the twins one year I so I never really had a main team that I was a pardon Gordon except I do remember the diamondbacks being prominent. Here's the thing. Though the the great injustice of it all was that we everybody would get together and have tryouts and All of the it was like this day long affair. All of the coaches were there at their clipboards and they were it. Getting people assigned assigning values to the speed and accuracy. And you know right anyway so we were. We are running around and I would recognize guys year after year. That never made it onto my team but always always made it on to the Yankees. He's always and I was like wait a minute you know I got. It took me way too long to realize what was going on by the way and I walked up to my dad one day and I was like dead What the crap hang? Hang on sick and they were the best team. They beat everybody all the time. Anyway the guy who was the head coach of the Yankees team was in my neighborhood and we knew them really well. Same Church congregation. Sores like Lo Que Dad. Why don't you put in a word with what's his name over there and how come I'm not wearing pinstripes man clean on the best team in the town down you know like what the crap so my dad's bless his heart you talk to the guy and he goes up tune into secures me? Try Try out with this team. And I'm like we already did. Try Okay. Whatever I'll go show up so it wasn't a tryout as what they told me it was it was just a practice actes? They just threw me into this team practice and it was like you know. I've missed like two weeks of their team practices so lots of cohesion was established. Already everybody knew each other from years previous etc and I played my freaking guts. Let's out and thought I did okay. Only to be told later on at the end of the day that I was not going to be playing for the team and it it broke my heart as a kid. It really did tore me up and I sat there crying. I was like ten like eleven may be maybe and and I sat there crying. Couldn't understand why And then my dad had to explain to me that they were Never GonNa let me on the team that the other guy did it as a personal favourite my dad but did they had no intention ever a leading me on the team and he didn't know that until he saw the guy interact with me during the practice because because he came with me and Yeah so then I had to join another team Just kind of as the odd man out Kinda thing worked out and it was fine. Had A great season loved it but but yeah that that's one of my That's one of my oldest memories from Little League in. It's it's rough one and you're still Yankees Fan yeah. I learned a lot about life at that in that one afternoon. Sounds like man. Yeah an experience. That was pretty rough. I'm good now that's good. I'm glad to hear the that's it so for me I played it the same group for three years when I was Ten Eleven and twelve My Friend's Dad put together this team just like a group of us. We all went to elementary school together. some guys lived on my street. Other guys looked cross town. But we were for all We're all I guess we all play in the same city league. He's kind of picked song. Put us all together. This is actually the team I learned how to play catcher on because up to that point I had caught one game and I guess he liked what he saw and I was and I think I think this is where it comes from. My Dad was my coach when I was nine in Michigan and play machine pitch and so he had all the all the gear. And so I'd put it on sometimes at my friend across the street who learned how to pitch. He had planned on the team with me and he was pitcher pitcher in a third baseman but We would go. We get in my front yard. I put on the gear and and I'd catch for him and so I wonder in his dad was one of the coaches and I wonder what if that's part of the reason they said hey bring Brad. He'll catch you know sure. And so it's either had played catcher with his team. Ten eleven twelve. We started We started out as the Marlins Orlands like I said when I was when I was ten we actually had to play a year up because we we're all supposedly one more year of machine pitch and they brought us up to play in the but like the eleven or twelve year old league so we had a hit life pitching and there are a few older kids that like there are few kids who belong legally like I had a good friend down the street. WHO's a year older thirty years older than me? He played on the team with us and he taught me how to hit life. Pitching the approach. Everything he's like it's not going to be in the same spot. Every time is six so he taught me how to pick up the ball and everything everything And so that was I couldn't believe it so we are out of the twelve kids on that team. Nine of us were a year younger than everybody else in the league and we took We took third place in league. Wow eight or nine team so so we did pretty well and so we all stuck together. We picked up a couple of kids who didn't play on that Marlins team with us and we all went to play on like a travel league and and we were called Spartan Sweetie. We're the Spartans from eleven and Twelve for eleven or twelve year old seasons and then my family moving away and I think they played one more season as the spartans but But that was that was the team played on I think I still have my spartan. Spartan t-shirts around here somewhere. We were GONNA have somebody make a quilt for us Nice got a few friends on facebook. Actually a lot of the guys like we were so close close for those three years that I'm still friends with all those guys on facebook even though I moved away and I haven't seen them in years Actually I saw a few years ago. Saw Few years ago so at a at a funeral in Utah But yeah that was. It was cool to actually get to see those guys after you know golly had been fifteen fifteen years since I'd seen him and the ad like we we are so tight because we played together for so long we started. We started practicing Lake February or March. And like that you now and then we played all through the summer until my coach couldn't find another tournament for us to play. It was a blast. You know like we had double headers every Saturday plus replant tournaments and I caught every single one of those games. That's awesome so bad so for and then I'd still play city league and when I was twelve the C. D. League I went and played a city league with another one of my friends somewhere because they needed a catcher. Simon cotton played short suffer them. We're the Yankees. Then you got the holy grail. I have fought one of the guys is for number two like almost four face for number two And and yeah I played. I played so much much baseball those three years so much awesome but in fact I kind of got burnt out because we moved. We moved to Washington at that point. And as I'm not playing this year I am not and so my dad was like you know what he's like. Just give it one more try. He's got talk to your coach. You know tell him that you don't want to catch this year and Sorry can go off the rails here a little bit. But he's going to tell you that you want to try something else and he's out how you do and so I started the season in the outfield slowly. worked my way into the Infield and then and then the kid who is catcher got hurt and they're like why don't you don't want to but we need you to catch. Yeah catching the rest of the season. Records course catching next year because the coaches knew that idea than eye catching in high school and I fell back in love with it but but yeah just like man I tried so hard to play outfielder third base. So is this. The spartans was my team as far as my team and there was one team when I was twelve that we could not beat the because there are a few kids on the team who are a little bit older than the rest of us. Yeah they were just because their birthdays were on the same grade but because their birthdays days where they are essentially a year older than us. We play every year. We played a league up from where we were right as one team. I specifically members the snappers and and for the longtime had no idea where they got that name. But it's a minor league team right. I don't you beat the tar out of us every single time. Like like to the point that they they would just bombs off of our pitchers and there's a couple times a kids. Cancer is one kid in particular who came in and he was like really high on himself. Really cocky and he would like like make faces avenues. He's touching home plate and get so mad at these guys but then finally our last game we played against them. We beat them. Yeah beat beat on. We beat the snappers as the SPARTANS. That's awesome that was pretty Rad but So I would consider them our biggest rival My favorite memory though doc as far as that goes man it was just like it was so much fun. I'm not can you even though we lost a bunch of games because we were so overmatched. We'll go play in tournaments for our age group and we wouldn't cleanup bad. We cleaned up because we're so used to facing a big like not just like tougher competition but they are bigger than us. There's so much and so we. We just had a ton of fun goof around in the DUGOUT and when everybody on team found out is moving that fall one of the kids. I'll never forget this conversation like we're just going to change to the backstop. That will bring some food throughout the day. But we're going to change the backs subsequent move as a cold water about as we're playing and like I need to get the ball. He's like oh it'll be a long change plenty of room to move. It'll be just long enough. You can reach second base but no longer longer than that you can read. Secondly you're gonNA live with the baseball field for the rest of your life as long as you live with the baseball field. That's Awesome Assembly working. So yeah but that was. That was my team that was it was it was a ton of fun tons of fun plans as guys Love Love Malta. All the death Even to this day but let's move on her next question because I took enough time there. Hey it's all good you. I'm glad you brought some happiness is into my story. I I have happy stories that there'd be some happy stories. Yeah there's a lot of happy but that's my most potent memory. That's sounded like anyway anyway. So so so next escorts. Listen breakfast is for anybody who didn't see it. Anybody who didn't see the picture of the break posted he said Just encouraging everybody to submit to male baggies holding a bang energy drink Got Mind right here in my hand. Right now The hat little bantering it. So he's wearing a Santa Hat and Denise Cantu says why is the fuzz on your Santa Hat gray. I think that is probably the best question we've ever had some into the mill back I is the fuzz. Like you said that gray break so it's a good story it's as long. It's Kinda long all try and cut it down have I. Have you seen Christmas chronicles. Oh we just watched last night with Wilson okay. So that's my new jingle. Jam Break Brian Baker. It's it's one of my favorite Christmas movies for those of you. That don't know net flicks produced it last year. It came out last year and Kurt. Russell plays Santa Santa Claus and he's the best center. I mean literally sleighs it. Yeah I might put him above I. I'm probably going to have about Tim Allen as the best Santa Tim. The toolman Romance Santa was awesome but but Kurt Russell is like my man. Santa you know so and I'm a blues man I love Blues. Who's music and so when he gets in the jail and sings? The Blues is like Oh man. Blues Music is the Best Blues. Christmas music is really hard to find anyway so I went to. We saw the movie and it looked at Tiffany and I went. Oh my gosh I gotta have a hat like that have to have to have a hat like that and she said I think I could probably make it for. You could probably make you one. I said what so I ran out to the fabric store the craft store and I I went three fabric stores looking for the right for to match Kurt. Russell's hat could not find the right color of rabbit for his is LEGIT IT anyway. So this gray for that I found. Look it looks fabulous. The picture here does not do justice on the group but It it just looks great. So in any way my wife ended up making its silk lining with kind of a Paisley pattern on it that I picked out and I so I picked out all the all the pieces and she put it together for me and I wear it everyday. All December all last year's all this year. Yeah like I'm dropping. I'm dropping my kid off at school and and Wearing my Santa Hat go pick her up wearing the Santa Hat. It's so all the parents are either avoiding eye contact with me or given me the whole eyebrow thing like yeah. You're that that guy is the freaking season that you. Maybe I'm that guy low. Hello these smile on my face. So that's why it's great that's awesome and I think it looks sharp to be honest with you. I like the way I really like the way it looks and I'm I'm gonNA plug the shopper. Quick there Some of those Raglan shirts on the shop had that same red with like that gray. Yeah sucker for that combination the nation. I'll be honest with you. Yeah so I think that's a I think it's a good look at the next question. Came from my wife. Tiffany she said. Let's discuss discuss. How in the world some teams cough cough ca can afford to pay player upwards of two hundred ninety five five million dollars Brad? Tell me what is going on. I mean we talked about it a lot already today but What's your opinion on this but it comes it comes from TV man TV dollars like the reason part of the reason the Yankees are so rich is because of es network? I mean they've got the what the most densely populated metropolitan area in the country You've got subscribers for the yes network. People are willing to pay for advertising on the network so yes at work as I mean the Yankees on the network. But they're raking in raking in money from the Yes network nest where the money comes from. That's why they can pay people like a few years ago. I saw a headline for the mariners at said they came to a a deal specific to direct TV. Yeah I stood. Is it up cheered. I said yes payroll man payroll and that was about the time they made that canot deal. Yeah I think they made the not like a year ear to after that and I was like there. It is like it's not going to the right guy but they're spending in Spanish but but yeah they have more money to spend and because of the TV deal and You know some of that comes from obviously across the League as far as like revenue sharing and ticket sales things like that but TV's the big part of it and the thing that's interesting. Is that over the next few years. That's GonNa Change because as of cord cutting the cord cutting me and I think that might be part of the reason we're GONNA see Saudi. We could Zia salary cap too is because the TV deals will change I think it was somebody in the NFL or the NBA said this. They just negotiated their last traditional. TV contract The after this it's going to be all streaming stuff because that's the way people consume sports. That's right and Major League baseball. You know you obviously Komo TV where you can stream all the games but you can't streaming your network or in your market. I think that's at. I think that might change change with the collective bargaining agreement if they come of some kind of new way to do that. You price will probably go up because they've got to make up for what they're not getting as far far as as far as local. TV deals but Yeah I think that's I think that's what we're going to be the future. Then you gotTA figure Merch. Nobody has to share the weapons on Merch. Yeah some of it comes from Merch And like you said. That's that's revenue sharing. I believe that spread across the League. That like because the nats sold more ran down Strasbourg insures or jerseys. This year doesn't mean that their payroll goes up the payroll as far as the league goes because everybody else gets that money. Yeah but it's not that yeah. It is broadcast rights. Yeah I think it's all broadcast rights if you've got the you've got the local TV deal. Then you've got the highest payroll and that's why the Yankees pay so much money for their players. They can buy those guys is because they have the money from that. TV deal from all those people that metropolitan area and same thing with the dodgers the dodgers yes. They were bought for a couple of billion dollars and they have a wealthy ownership hip group but at the same time L. as densely populated highly populated area metropolitan area and they're benefiting from the TV deals. And I don't think the angels does benefit from that as much being a little bit farther south And I think that's partly sunny changed their name to L. A. was looking into that market and claim some of that Some that TV revenue. Yeah I make sense but because I think it was about that time when did they change to the L. A.. Angels of Anaheim. Hi was that about the time. They signed pupils. I have no idea I quick. I've chosen to distance myself from that decision that it was portable because they're not the L.. Angels of Anaheim anymore. Now they're just the Elliott angels which is like still clear whatever but all bad is part of the L. A. Metro La Metro area but there in Anaheim and it's like an hour and a half south driving which you know if there's no traffic you'd probably take you twenty minutes but whatever so let's see so they changed over to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in two thousand and five and they signed Albert Pool Holes or or is Chris Berman so is watching watching the cardinals game. This is a long time ago at the had been highschool. Chris Berman was broadcasting the game yeah for sure it was in high school cool. Yeah it call them Albert Winnie the Pooh holes. That was seriously one time and ever percents. That's funny yeah so funny I will never think of him differently now Yeah Albert Winnie the Pooh Halse. That's absolutely that's really good. And and boomer Berman's good at that kind of stuff and though his whole introduction to that game cracked me up. He said I'm coming out of the bullpen. Hoping to go five the third. But we'll see how it goes. And he went down the lineup and said Albert Winnie the Pooh batting third. An all of it was seamless. Because he's too so good at it. Yeah he is so so albuquerque signed with the angels in two thousand twelve thousand seven years after the change that they were benefiting from La Metro TV deals broadcast. Yeah Broadcast Money And obviously benefiting Alan the trout deal and Renzo so yeah and Otani. He's not hurting. Yeah yeah publicity. Otani got a pretty good pretty good deal. And he's getting some. I'm sure he's getting some advertising money as well but that's who I walked in probably five circles to get there get back to it but yeah it's TV money that's all it. Is that if you if you can't negotiate the TV deal. Then you're you're not gonNa have the payroll and then the Yankees own the network that selling TV deal. So they're not they don't have to coordinate with and split the money up. Yeah it's all there's because obviously because they only have to give so much to the next because they're in a salary cap leaks within the rest of it just goes to because the Yankees but the they have they have a few teams sharing with but as far as like the way that it goes the Yankees on the network. Just they just dump it. All their same with the broadcast. Radio is owned by. I think the Yankees owned the radio broadcasts as well because it's the Yankees radio network. Yeah yeah yeah driven by jeep. Oh by jeep your neat just John Tell you. We'll tell you John Susan. They're always tell us about jeep. But there's your answer tiff. You're teapot where it's at and it'll it'll be interesting to see how things change with cord cutting in the future and at increase streaming service services I don't know that that money will necessarily go down as streaming service costs will go up but maybe a salary cap will help with that. That's that's one more reason. I hope for salary cap. Yeah Yeah we got a lot of reasons. Yep Yeah because it'll it'll help with cost of us a going to games be paying for streaming services. If that's that's what that's how you consume your baseball. It is how I can see mine me too. We bought it we bought a TV. We bought L. G. T. V.. Put It on the wall above the fireplace. You know it's it's this monster stupid huge thing. 'cause you gotta get the one that fits the fate the the space so so anyway right. Yeah stupid we we didn't own a TV for like six years overly uh-huh and then we moved into this house. And there's this big space above the fireplace. And for me. I WANNA watch the world series The Olympics religiously allegedly by the way. I'm a super junky for the Olympics. I WanNa Watch the Super Bowl and I wanted army navy game. That's it and then everyday read ended up daily baseball stuff. But that's like we don't watch. TV TV for anything. But those sporting events Oh and the Oscars Oh we watch the Oscars but anyway we we. That's it though and We have this. TV sits on the wall and does a whole bunch of nothing until until baseball season until uh-huh baseball season anyway. So we bought this. TV's LG and one of the APPS that was advertised for it when we bought it in I think we bought it in in December it said. MLB TV compatible is sweet come spring training. We get a notification. I go to turn on on. MLB TV APP. They said sorry. Our contract has expired with MLB TV and LG. And I'm like I'm looking at this. TV We now have had for almost four months or six months. Or whatever. And I'm like Gosh Dang it so now I still have to hook up mme laptop to the big huge. TV SMART TV. That I bought to put on the wall just to watch baseball. I think I think I think you can get a Roku I think. Yeah but I got buy a Roku Kuu. It's cheap. It's twenty bucks a rookie. Love very expensive. I mean we have an apple. TV which is more expensive but we can use with all of our devices. But that's that's another a story but no it has. MLB T. on there. And then no I. So that's that's my watch baseball when I'm out in the living room. Yeah and then when I'm in my room room. I watched on the xbox one APP but you have I bought a centralized streaming device. I bought thing the supposed to do all of the things and now it doesn't Brad I know that's the process setting or TV's that like you buy it for all that stuff like ours are smart TV that we've had for a while. It had Netflix Hulu prime all that and then I went to watch Hulu Day wasn't working anymore like lots fantastic aspic shortly after the xbox into the bedroom so he could do that stuff but but yeah it's now we're going to have to own four different devices just to watch watch Disney plus and Roku and you know what I mean. I'm like jeeze it's stupid. Could get yourself Roku or fire stick or something. I don't know they just need to make all of the streaming APPS available across all devices right. Yes that's one thing that drives me crazy if I want to watch. If there's a game on Fox I WANNA watch. I can't watch it in the living room because his there's no fox APP on Apple TV. See I have to either go into the bedroom or airplay from Youtube. TV On my phone. And I don't WanNa do that. Drains my phone battery. Yes see and that but do you have cable or satellite. Oh No see you. You're already cutting your cord. We are complete court cutters see. We're not 'cause I got fight night next week in the Army Navy Games today. I'm like the Army Navy game today. So yeah go army go army no Brad. That's when you say beat Navey see I say go. Navy beat Navy. I don't know Spratt Sti- Stewart again. Startling go army one beat Navey DEG seat. No with vigor Brad. Oh I have no dog in this fight you do you now. Ready go army beat Navy. Yes okay no right I feel better. I am a self-proclaimed off proclaimed college football atheist what I have no football team I have no college football team. See I'm an NFL atheist. That's cool college. Football has been way more enjoyable since I stopped cheering for anybody. Oh I see what you're saying you're not against the NFL or you're not against college football. Wow you just don't affiliate anymore. Yeah exactly and it's because we went to a school. That doesn't have a football team. Yeah we did some like whatever I can watch Alabama game and if Alabama wins I don't get upset It doesn't matter who wins Games. I'm I'm strictly watching for the entertainment factor How many people out there feel that way about baseball? That's a good question because I can watch. I can watch any baseball game. I could sit down to watch. She gave it. Doesn't you don't get hyped on it. And the mariners. Oh and I get hyped on the mariners like I used. I don't get hyped on any sport like when I watch Zimmer's see and that's how it is for me when the Yankees play but the thing is I'm so used to losing as I also don't go the the opposite direction when they lose on the guy well just another day whatever. Sure as the sun came up this morning mariners will lose tonight because all those hook hold these more existence it a little bit. I hope hold on hope. One of these days days. It will all turn around while they tried to turn it around by giving robby can Nelson Performance enhancers but that didn't work out well and see the GM who signed him when they fired him. The owner said as either the owner of the president said we WANNA hire somebody WHO's not trying to learn on the job sick. Oh Wow that's all that strong. That is strong clearly.

Effectively Wild Episode 1468: The Scott Boras Guessing Game

"In strips it is true. Hello and welcome. Got It taps of fourteen sixty eight of actively wild fan graphs baseball podcast brought to you. By our Patriot supporters I met growly fan graphs reporting to live from San Diego now. I'm joined as always by Ben. Limburg of the ringer. Then how are you. I haven't total Scott Boris blackout as planned. We're here for our Scott poorest quote guessing game in which I will attempt to discern the real quotes by the linguistically adventurous super agent from the fake. I'm very proud of our listeners. Harassed for not tagging you into tweets and blowing this. I appreciate their restraint. I know it had to have been difficult for them. They may have. I have avoided. Hit twitter just in case a couple of them did very helpfully tweet at me earlier to tell me when Scott Pours would be addressing the media being so that I would not be spoiled and at at that time at three eastern. I close twitter. I have since not looked at any tweets. I have not looked at any baseball sites. There's an email to our podcast address that I have not read just in case I almost got spoiled because someone a well meaning person and listener of this. PODCAST is not aware that we were doing this. Sent me a link to with tweet. Fortunately he did not send me text of the tweet he just sent me a link to it and I said is this about Scott. Boris and he said yes and I said well then I cannot view it because because I am in Scott. Boris Black. Well I appreciate Their restraint and yours the diligence with which you approach this So I think maybe the way that we'll do this because I know which quotes are real and which ones aren't is that I will just read you quote and you will guess. Yup I am. The listeners can play along at long. Are you going to give me multiple options like fake alternative or am I just going to guess real or not real. I think you'll just get real or not real cuss away. That we'll do this Ah in the presence. I was not which I think was just as well because will you wouldn't have seen the pictures of the the Boris scrum But I imagine as as usual it was one of the better attended a standups at winter meetings so There were a number of folks who I know who were there who learned what he said by looking at twitter because they were so far away that they couldn't hear him. I'm sure it was being tweeted simultaneously by everyone in attendance so I was worried that he might run out of things to say. I shouldn't have doubted him because he never run out of things to say but because the Strasbourg signing happened on Monday and he had to talk to the media about that and he had his line about markets are like flowers. The beauty begins from below and of course last week he had the revenue festival and the Cherry trees. Hopefully that was just a warmup. But that I was worried that he was using his best material. And meanwhile he's fielding offers presumably for Garrett Cole left and right I thought it might not leave him enough time to hold court but of course he found time so all right he always does go. Okay here we go. We'll start we'll start with With this one. We've got six six six coming. I think six six five and a half Five and a half. Okay look if you're setting out on a long journey. You might start with a destination in mind but after a while you have to adapt tough water sandbars a bad morning. Sometimes there are sharks and sometimes better beaches the best port isn't always where you I thought. Oh my gosh. Rush totally plausible sounding in fact it. It sounds almost too much like Scott. Boris quote I'm suspicious because it is canonical analogy and there's sandbars and shark so it almost sounds like what one would construct has a fake Scott. Boris quote so. I'm GonNa say fake you have me. It was it was inspired by an actual boris quote. That was a relatively tame. And so I thought I would START US off by grounding or insanity in reality a Scott. Boris said at this that he doesn't think geography plays an overriding factor in players players. Decision Making and that inspired me to To to write a little bit so there we are not that if someone had sent that to me at another time another day Ah told me that was something Scott Pours said absolutely would have bought it. It's just that I'm on high alert right now. I'm looking for the fake Boris quote. Okay well here's another one on. Are we ready another quote and they'll be teams are like birds. There's some humming birds the buzzer round. Sparrows get something. They can't carry the weight of a lot of owls. Who are wise lies? I work at night a lot of hawks. And you don't want to be an ostrich and lay the biggest egg. Oh my goodness. Wow all right so he does often start start with teams are like x that sort of construction. That's classic. Boris I want this to be real. 'cause this is a really good one on the one hand. It raises my alarms a little bit because now we've moved from nautical into zoological and. We know that he has entered that territory before before so it could be another case of trying to come up with something that I would say but I don't know the the ostrich with the head in the sand. I like this one. I want to believe that this is Boris. I'm going to say real it is in fact real and wow this is our this is our one and a half He followed that up by saying that the mets meanwhile birds of a different feather kiss to be again the MLB teams are like birds. There's some hunting hummingbirds the buzz around sparrows get something. They can't carry. The weight of a lot of owls. Were wise and work at night. A Lot. Lot of hawks and you don't want to be an ostrich and lay the biggest egg. Wow this is elaborate okay. So who would each of these birds be so so a hummingbird they're just hovering. Maybe keeping busy talking to everyone moving very quickly. Perhaps swooping in from time to time to suck some of that sweet connector from the free agent market and an ally who works at night at. That's just someone who gets a deal done late at night. I guess in the midnight oil. So what's what's a sparrow. Who who what is it? Picks up something something. They can't carry the weight of that be I. I don't know I I Maybe team that signs of free agent to a very big deal but then doesn't do anything to to supplement Around yeah maybe maybe the one into bidding maybe and realizes that they don't have the budget for it too rich for their tastes and talk to bow out. Perhaps the the White Sox are the sparrows of of the baseball world. Until this year I think The part of this that I'm the most interested in is the ostrich but you don't want to be an ostrich and lay the biggest egg and I have a couple of questions about this. I would imagine that what he probably is referring to is is not participating in the market at all right but laying an egg. That's an active thing. That's it you you have to. You have to do a thing which feels much more like the kind of thing that you marry with actually signing A free agent. which you know? Boris is famously. In favor of so I find that one to be a bit funky. It is. Yeah I when I heard ostrich thought it would be burying your head in the sand which I thought would would be just to stay on the sidelines not thinking that you have to be in the bidding and then watching. Some other team passed by like Cleveland this year. For instance may be was an ostrich trajan was burying its head in the sand but laying an egg. Yeah I guess that is just Disappointing your fans by dropping the ball basically dropping. The Paul is sort of if an active term for failing to do something. So yeah all right I guess and Hawks Hawks are just too aggressive teams. I guess they're lacquer talks eagle-eyed their spot in the deals going after the good value. I don't know but right. Take taking advantage of the sparrows now. Dow was good. Could work could win. Scott Okay this one I am going to deviate a bit and I'm going to give you a choice between which one is real and which one is made out okay so oh Your first option is the these will both be in referenced to Garrett Kohl's market if this were a thermometer it would be room temperature heading towards a hot climate. That's your first option. Your second option is geared stove is heating and I expect a nice char on this one. When when it's over not too well done it'll be just right for him who wow All right I'm kind of at a loss here because the the first one unsound more realistic or it sounds like something normal person would say. But that's not a very good guide to what Scott Boris would say the only thing about the first one that gives me pause that he's lowering expectations if anything it would be. He saying it's room temperature right now whereas I would expect him. Maybe maybe to be acting as if there's even more interest like it's sweltering in there so I'm kind of torn on this one but I I think I will go with B.. Is the real one the chart thing. No that's a that's a big rally special. The first good what I I just sat down posture but so many of his real ones do and I just I didn't really think he would describe the market for any of his clients as room temperature. Sure I guess I guess I should have figured that because he has complained in the past about teams not bidding and not spending and talking about how. Oh the stove isn't hot so I guess it makes sense that he would say something as room temperature but yeah. I was seduced by that elaborate imagery. I wanted that to be the first one. Yeah well who doesn't like a nice char something that they're kicking okay. This is our future. What what is it moving toward Well this was This is what I thought would tip you off. Because he loves to mix. He loves to mix metaphors. It will be room temperature heading towards a hot climate. Yeah that Eh. Yeah that sounded kind of funky. I mean I guess you could say that in endures temperatures is a hot climate. I guess in endure can Pierre Climate. It's Sir it's SORTA strange all right. I I was very torn on that one could have gone either way but Good one and here's our here's our final final entry free agents there. The seeds that grow into wins into rings. I think a lot of teams looked around this year and wanted a better harvest enough of both to get them through the next winter and who knows. Maybe you need apples and onions. Apples and onions So up until you get to the apples onions that it sounded real to me now questioning everything apples anion all right. So he's he's saying that you need multiple types of free agent you need to diversify justify your your crops. I guess I'll go with real on that one. No I made that. Oh well it was getting. I was Starting to question my career choices like m I a writer at all. Am I able to understand the motivations and approaches of other people especially Shauwie this one special weird weirdo dictates so much of our professional lives. I feel I feel vindicated that I could join the Scott. Boris writer's room. Even though I am I am quite satisfied with my current position but definitely could especially with that last one that that would definitely got me going apples onions that that that triggered some alarms but I debated I debated the combination of crops for at least five minutes. Spent at least five I. It was apple's Zucchinis than it was going to be potatoes and onions then. I thought apples and onions. I don't know why that felt better. It's like one year You you know when you're writing a thing and you strike upon a number and you're like well I should say the number ten here because for whatever reason That's funnier than fifteen. It's just like that. Yeah that's how comedy writing words uh-huh yeah apples instant sound to me like the like to crops that one person would grow necessarily they don't grow the same same way apple tree at an onion is something you plant and I don't know about the climates or the regions where they come from. But I wouldn't necessarily expect Scott. Boris just to be accurate about those things regardless so say yeah that one was That was possible for sure. All right so I guess. It was a fairly TAME TAME performance by Boris. That the bird one. I mean that's that's classic. That's vintage Boris. Right there but he didn't have a whole lot of fake wants that were worthy of his usual work. It sounds like now they were. They were pretty tame as these things go. I will highlight a couple of other things that you would have missed list from having a Listen to this so Boris said that. There's not one but two new mystery teams in the Garrett Cole market and that there's a probability that's the quote That Cole sign during winter meetings I've been readings end Thursday. Yeah Yeah I guess. Everyone leaves on Wednesday rate or a lot of people start leaving so even though we're at room temperature right now. He's expecting that we're going to get to the hot climate so soon boy. Yeah I mean it's going to ramp up very quickly. It sounds like then again. If he said there's a probability there's a probability of almost anything the probability ability could be zero. That actually doesn't tell us much at all that is extremely UN revealing I guess it reveals that. It's not completely impossible that he could sign. Chiasso indicated that each team's meeting with Garrett Cole has been extensive and each has less at least six hours six hours. What on what in the world? What with whisker coal with Garrett Cole? Here's here's what I'll say as a human being who is an adult and has been in the world you could you can go on really good dates by really good first dates eight and six hours. You're like okay. This is really good date but now I need to go home. This might just be I might be projecting how I have been really what good is just going to bed and have been given grief about that this week but Yeah you use. You're like okay now now. I need to recharge from this. What could they possibly talk about for six hours? Yeah so he's he doesn't mean at the winter meetings no it's like the the visits that call his to various teams or that they acted him over the correct. Yeah I get I get the sense that has been as Benaud a couple of weeks developing he. He has not been going six hours back to back to back intentional teams. That's good. Yeah well I guess you throw in a tour of the ballpark or something. And then maybe there's a meal as Meet the GM and the manager and a star player too and the owner probably. And there's probably a couple meetings there and then maybe there's there's some transit time involved. I guess you make a day of it. It probably makes sense. 'cause he's going to have to travel to them or vice versa. So you'd want to get your your money's worth there so that makes sense but yeah I don't know what can you do. I guess it's partly or mostly for coal to quiz team. Shy about What a vision? I don't know his Co.. Being or their future being what other moves. They're planning to make what the city is like to live and because I don't know that there's that much to ask scarecrow about. He's really good so not many questions about that. Now and then a porous also said and will remind folks that he of course represents rent on on and also hundred review believes. There's no stop sign. That's the quote refill lease in pursuit of top level. Free agent talent quote. I'm sure that John Middleton is sitting back and saying what can I do to be the best. I'm sure he's doing that for it. Sounds good but yet it seems like As as these things go it was relatively tame. I'm sure having a Strauss off the off the board helped But but yeah the bird that bird one. We're GONNA get some juice out of that for a little while. Yeah it's understandable kiss. He must be a busy guy is always busy guy at the winter meetings but unlike like the last couple of years the winter meetings are actually active this here so things are happening and he is probably a texting and talking to clients and teams constantly so so that doesn't leave a lot of time for brainstorming lions. Although again as we speculated he may have people who are eating him these lines. If so if there's someone out there who wrote this bird material for Scott Boris please step up take credit drop us a line. Let us know the process the creative process behind this. This amazing ornithological analogy here really just spectacular. So all right well we did it. I'm looking at my twitter conventions now and Three people spoilt me. The two attempted to and checks. Yeah they probably didn't realize probably a couple of other people hoped that I was not being spoiled in that we would convene for this exercise so they will be pleased when they see that we did. So maybe this can just is be a bonus episode. Maybe you'll be an annual tradition as long as Scott. Boris is delivering lines. We'll be there to speculate about which ones are real her not real. How's your winter meetings experience going otherwise it's going it's going well? I will say that in a in an assessment that will shock absolutely no one. I continue new to prefer San Diego to Las Vegas so in that respect this winter meetings is I superior to last year's I did get to see friend of the show Jeff Sullivan Ullivan for a drink. Jeff says hide everyone The hotel we're staying at is not the conference hotel but it is immediately adjacent to PETCO and my I hotel room actually looks out on the on the Ballpark so when I opened the curtains in the morning there is Manny Machado Brighton. Early Samhani theory are but yeah San Diego's great so is nice to get to see people. That's the that's the part of winter meetings that I enjoy the most because we're all spread out across the country and it gives us An excuse to come together and eat good food and talk about baseball and Sierra pals so that part is really good and when you are in your thirties and just decide side. I'm tired and I will. Now go to bed you wake up and you don't feel terrible in the morning at winter meetings either so I think I've cracked the code. Although I have been given goth for it being an old lady so well I've never been more grateful for you. Then when you vowed out of our posts sabers seven hundred exhibits thus there with Jesse my wife and we were tired and Had some work to do and we were kind of looking for a way to extricate ourselves. But we didn't want a to look like bad guests because David Letterman was taken us out on the town as he always does and I didn't want to ungrateful and yet I also did want to go a bed or whatever had to do and then you f first and once you left. It was fine for me to leave the managing editor that gave me permission to say Yup. Well we'll talk about that time so great moment. Glad that that terrible head cold. I was nursing a Boston. Good for something that gave us both an excuse to bow Out and be well rested for the next day. One of the two winter meetings that I've attended was in San Diego and the other was in Nashville and a far preferred the San Diego addition because the Nashville one in the opera lands. I did not see the sun the entire time unless there was like a fake skylight. That was supposed to resemble the son. But you just don't go outside. There's much really to see outside. And that's just a whole self contained ecosystem and everyone is just roaming the halls and and you never see natural light and it's a very disorienting. After a few days of being there so San Diego was sort of Nice. You could go outside and feel the room temperature. That was not too hot climate. Yes exactly all right. Well thank you for bringing me these Scott Boris announced his real and fake. Like Spero. It was not too heavy for you to carry and bring to me and over listeners. And have a rest of your trip and and we'll talk a little later this week. Sounds good all right. That will do it for this bonus episode. Thank you for listening and perhaps playing along. I don't know that Scott Boris could ever potentially be a hall. Famer not sure. There's really room in the hall for a player agent. Technically I don't think agents are eligible. But maybe you could call him. A pioneer didn't engineer baseball's economic structure purpose he has found ways to maximize its value for the players is almost an aired Marvin Miller in a sense and by the way that often dormant Boris Corp.. Twitter account did tweet out a message from Boris about. Marvin Moore's election into the hall of fame this past week. He has come up with new ways to get players paid contract structures and loopholes in such. He has certainly been one of the defining figures of the past few decades in baseball and his legacy of course this is player advocacy and his many giant deals that he has engineered. But it's not only that it's also an teams are like birds. Never forget that if he somehow did end up with a hall of fame plaque it should not just be a list of his biggest contracts is most giant commissions it should be his. Most outlandish quotes is clearly a linguistic pioneer. I can only hope that Jeff didn't. Here's the press conference. Hopefully he has better things thanks to do at the winter meetings.

Tony Dungee will join US coming up a little bit. We'll check in with lane kiffin. The old miss head coach Emmanuel Sanders. One of the stars of the forty niners. Great season will join us a little bit later later on his well. Your phone calls. Emails tweets always welcome with the play of the day stat of the day. mclovin has the honour of poll question coming up in a little bit as well. Eight eight seven seven three. DP show twitter with DP show a lot of tweets today and has to do with what the Yankees did with. Garrett Cole gets his some of those tweets coming up but the evil empire is back the Yankee Signing Garrett Cole to that nine year deal worth over three hundred twenty million dollars and it's a move that's reminiscent of New York towards the end of the George Steinbrenner era and the reality is there are a lot of teams that handout huge contracts now but the evil empire. It's really about rooting against the Yankees. The and when you start to think about how many teams do we have that you root against the Yankees used to be a team that you rooted for rooted against you know when you're not winning championships than people. Don't start to look at you. They look at you differently. The Yankees were the evil empire because they were the team to beat Duke. Basketball was an evil empire. You rooted against them Notre Dame football you know. There's a handful of these teams franchises schools. You you know the Golden State Warriors. They were considered That evil team you the rooted for them or against them but you need bad guys sports needs is it you need rivalries and you look at the NBA this year. You don't really have anybody that you go and I don't like that team. I mean the clippers. I don't think you have any animosity. Awesome towards them the Yankees. You know. You're looking for a team that's like the Yankees. Now you can look at the Lakers. Maybe but even then you're going. I don't dislike Anthony Davis. They haven't won in a while. Lebron that's a good season here Milwaukee Bucks you rooting against the Greek freak. You know maybe the rockets Seru against but you need bad guys. You need that evil empire. That's why people dislike the Patriots so much because they're good. I don't think anybody hates the padres. Because they signed Manny Machado but New York when New York is good. It's good for baseball. And I don't know if Garrett Cole pays off for nine years you know three editor twenty million dollars but if it does work out over the next three or four years the rest of baseball is going to once again. Have Somebody to root against. I think it's great. I think tanks. We're going to get him. I know the angels were in there. Didn't want to go above three hundred million dodgers were in there as well but the Yankees needed needed him and what the Yankees have done and I applaud them they. They've actually developed a great farm system and they've done this before and Brian Cashman does a great job You have these players that they've developed great prospects. Aaron Judge Gleyber Torres Gary Sanchez. Luis Severino Luke Boy Aaron Hicks but sometimes you just go we gotta get somebody who's a difference maker. We might not be able to develop this kind of player this kind of pitcher now. The Yankees Ironically did draft Garrett Cole out of High School. He decided that he was going to go to UCLA. Instead the circuitous route to get to the Yankees about that mclovin. Circuitous US thanksgiving that day. What it means but it circuitous where these started with being drafted by the Yankees and then he got to Ucla Okay and then the pirates and then the astor's now with the Yankees. I think. That's the circuitous route here. where it says that means like roundabout roundabout way of getting to the Yankees sapone a route or journey longer than the most direct way? Okay all right. Thank you look me Mr Thesaurus today. Yes meant you work. Circuitous City due back in the day no Cincinnati Cute Circuit City Circuit Salads. I've titled Fritzy for that line. It's no no no he he already he sent me cheesy headlines and I had to throw myself on the sword here. I can't let you do these headlines on. They were kind of Sportscenter sportscenter. TV lines at a sportscenter anchor news. Yeah Yeah but I. I think you're trying to blame it on sports center and I would just blame yourself. There's some bad Edwin here so I'm going to protect you from you. Okay Fair enough. All right you guys want to hear any of these want to. Ah Now I I. I don't want to do this to you. Got To marry shouldn't have brought it up. Then we just send them to me. So I'm sort of on the air talking talking. And then reading his headlines as well they're fresh and bad like think of an anchor using one leaves with will explain at the end of your no. No no I was kind of. It's not really a mock doc at line as opposed at t's see more of these little tease unit and your brother worked in the tease in Gander at ESPN ESPN. Here's but yeah. This is like if you're like one of those up and coming. ESPN news guys know. Say something clever. You'd say one of these clever it's not clear or attempting to okay who you'RE GONNA call Yankees Bust Bank to grab Garrett will explain I you what I don't want to be associated with this. I'm I'm I'M GONNA I'm GonNa let you do it. I got to distance myself from fritzy's he's Marquette Michael. You'RE GONNA call in like the ghostbusters thing. Tired I move on when you're on the air. A Boris of Booze Super Agent Scott. Ruining baseball explain case. Scott Boris Boris Booze. A chorus of boos. Okay is later on in a lot of trouble explain. He went bowling and he had the flu. I still went bowling and stuck his flu fingers. And I'm the one that gets everybody sick but leaving. My bucket stick is flipping into the bowling ball's next flavors trae magma feek a young mistake K.. TRAE when young. But didn't you have to explain. Explain we'll explain may come back over to the game. That's explain why we don't have time for that now. I don't have the footage and I have a co anchor to play off. It's go there. Crafty who bungled cameras shooting Cincinnati. bengals situation we'll explain and the other one was raiders of the lost art. Texas tech uses D to beat number. One we'll have that when we come back art I got but then there was a movie. Arc and defense is like a lost art with all the three pointers world basketball. Thank you Taunton Yes we just got a cease and desist order from sports the distance himself so those are todd's cheesy headlines. I don't know where I was. I think it's about you know hating the Yankees. Then that means the Yankees. Can I start over Maroon. This welcome to the program gangs here ready to go. Tony Dungee will join US lane kiffin and Emmanuel Sanders. Hey how about that. Evil Empire here come the tweets plea Taymor Kirk words I don't know where that voice came from over social media the angry living in the basement employed. You don't have to live in a basement to not like your life. That is true once again. Now you're picking on the bloggers who are living in the basement. Warning your word. I think we always have that voice of a fritzy. Those those aren't any good that sort of my voice of the people. Yeah your sound is more of an angry at the world. I got lash out at some. This program I believe is still brought to you by TRUECAR. They show you what other people paid for the car. You want so when you're ready to discover buy or sell your next car visit truecar and enjoy more confident car buying experience so Garrett Cole got that contract nine for three twenty four Strasbourg seven for two forty five and then I go what. What is Jacob? degrom Graham getting what did he sign for five for one. Thirty seven man. So you could give him two of those contracts and it's still not what Garrett Cole has and then who's agent when he negotiated this isn't isn't that the man who is currently the GM of the mets yes mclovin by five hundred thirty seven poor guy I mean. How's he gonNA afford gator with that one? They'll but you're still you you have to be looking at this going. Oh my God and he. He wasn't a free agent. They just gave him an extension. These won the CY young back to back years. Ears and Brodie van Wagon was agent and then then now is his jam right. Yeah but did he negotiate that deal myself any became. There is no conflict of interest on that right. He didn't know he was going to be the mets. GM when he signed that deal did he will be free agent next year or did he knows knows a five year deal. When did you sign this deal? Was it last year. Oh he was going to be a free agent and he signed a five-year deal here for one. Thirty seven as it changed that much from this off season. The last off she's Apparently there's no collusion I don't. I don't think that any of these agents can go. Ah these owners are colluding here. Polling appears they have the ground for twenty twenty twenty twenty one twenty twenty two is earliest out as a player option. It's twenty twenty three. Oh Oh boy oh boy. Five for one thirty seven for the CY young back to back Cy Young Award winner Yanic Levin. I haven't seen any reason and why the deals are happening so quickly in the off season this year and we had to wait for Bryce Harper all off season Aaron explanation. I didn't know I got a heads up. Your Cole was going to sign This week but I don't know what you know what they're timeframe was for any of this because you had a lot of those deals you know guys didn't even get signed last year Dallas Kaikal there a couple of Craig Kimbrel. These guys were just waiting to be signed announce Strasbourg going back to the nationals. They had to do that. That I don't know if they keep on but Garrett Cole. I'm not surprised that the Yankees got him. I wondered you know. Once we saw the deal for Strasbourg the fact that it was two forty five and I go boy heating gear. Kohl's get over three hundred million dollars here because he's a better pitcher healthier pitcher and a couple years younger. You're going GONNA get you're GONNA get a big time deal and I wonder if the dollar value was the same if I said the angels and the Yankees were offering the same would Garrett Cole still gone onto the Yankees because he said he grew up a Yankee fan but you know he from the West Coast went to Ucla and talked about playing. You know pitching for the angels angels. And that's where I thought when the season ended I thought you know the angels are going to sign him. And then I think the price because Strasbourg went up if Garrett Cole had signed I and you know maybe this is genius. Scott Boras. He's like let me get Strasbourg. Signed and then wait because we're going to build off those numbers and that's what it feels. Feels like they did seven for two forty five. And I think you probably thought you could get Garrett Cole for somewhere in that same vicinity and You got him. Almost I ninety million dollars more eighty million dollars more In that situation so that's But Scott Boras does he. He gets those deals for his for his players. All right. What's your poll question? They're mclovin okay. this is sort of evil empire related poll questions. Okay one. You could put up do you do you root for the Yankees. What percentage of people root for the Yankees out? There is it fifty or a way lower I I I liked that. There's a team that you root against the fact that the Yankees now you look at them a little differently. Because I just didn't think the pitching staff was great but now you've made that pitching staff you know. Now you got Paxton and you got Tanaka Severino. Now these guys if you're that that's your two three four starter Your bullpen is going to be better. If Garrett Cole is going to be your ace there you still have a whole lot of talent. You've got softball lineup. There those guys all hit home runs and I miss those those teams those rivalries you know cubs won the world series and the Red Sox won the world series. Astros when okay. I want it back to where you're going. That's the team. You GotTa beat here and the Yankees are back with Garrett Cole and I think it's great. I think it's great for the sport I think basketball's missing that not right now but baseball with the Yankees. They got it back Yarmuk love what bothers you more. The Yankees outspending people the Patriots potentially bending the rules potentially who knows Alabama to sort of being Alabama having next saving or maybe duke which you think bothers fans. WHO's wearing wearing the black hat and sports? I I have opinion. I don't know if I'd be grudge the Yankees because they develop great talent here do realize Aaron judge hasn't been paid yet. Jean Carlos Stanton I gave him that stupid contract but normally Brian cashman probably doesn't doesn't get enough credit for some of the other things that he does great deals that he pulls off the talent that they develop and another thing. Yankee fans always say this. Yeah but you. We built a dynasty with cheater Bernie and and I said well. We'll hold on here you you did get those guys but you know what you did that other teams can't do you're able to to keep them because you can afford that most teams develop and then they lose them. The reds might develop players or the pirates might but then they lose them. The Yankees keys had the money to be able to keep them. That's the difference. No other franchise would it would have been able to keep Maryono jeeter Bernie. In all of those those players Posada because they wouldn't have been able to afford them with that next contract. Judge hasn't gotten paid yet. Yeah I'm wondering if judge is going to get paid that Max ax deal because you know. I was listening to New York radio yesterday and I said well they still gotta pay judge that Max deal. He had one great season in the past two years. He's missed one third of the ball games over one third third of the ball games due to injury. He's a two seventy five hitter who averages twenty seven home runs a year the past two years. Yeah he you know. He's not that young. He's twenty going to be twenty eight when he got like three more years. I think yeah left on this deal. And he also the other thing is a big guy with a long swing like that really we speed up as you get older look breaking down baseball the launch angle whatever. That's the hot stove league. Yes I think a lot. More people are bothered by the Patriots right now. I think they're the evil empire. People have already made up their mind and the Patriots. And I'm GonNa talk to Tony Dungy about this because I don't know if people care about the facts in this situation you've made up your mind and it didn't take this for you to go. You know on second thought I think the Patriots are cheaters. You've either made up your mind. I mean you've made up your mind long long before this. What exactly can you film on the sidelines? Now that you could actually say I'm cheating because everything is. The coach is holding holding up. His you know play sheet up to his mouth and then he talks to the quarterback in his helmet. So what exactly this is in college where you're signaling signaling in things I don't think unless it's defensive signals but I'm not quite sure so I want to ask Tony Dungy about this largest contracts Iraq's by total value so Mike Trout twelve years four hundred twenty six million. bryce Harper Thirteen for three thirty chin. Carlos Carlos Stanton Thirteen three twenty five good God Garrett Cole Nine for three twenty four and then Manny Machado ten years. Three hundred entered million dollars as much as I like the future of the padres. I don't like the future. The padres with Manny Machado. But I do think that they have you know some the foundation there that the padres could be players here in the next two years But I I don't get the Manny Machado love. I think he's talented on these great. But it's for the padres to worry about eight seven seven three. DP show email address. I ep Dan Patrick Dot com coming up. We'll talk to Tony Dungy about this situation with the Patriots. Is it a big deal and I feel like they already admitted that They did something wrong and trying to rectify it and maybe they get off with a kind of a light punishment here. Light by fifty thousand to one hundred hundred thousand dollar fine something like that. But I think the Commissioner is trying to wrap this up and try to wrap this up Maybe before the weekend all right eighteen after the hour. Tony Dungy joins US next next year. Dan Patrick Show okay. This is just a thirty second commercial. And I'M GONNA throw a lot of numbers that you please. Please stay with me in just fifteen minutes. You could save fifteen percent or more more on car insurance. The company has been offering great rates and great service for seventy five years. It's Geico I've been using it for a long time itself and anytime you need help you could speak to one of their trains specialist slowest twenty four seven no recordings the company Gyco go to GEICO DOT COM today. Sorry for all the numbers. But I've been a fan and a customer guy go for a long time and five five four three two one. I'm out. We talked about this yesterday with Troy Aikman. Would you bring him in to help. Run Edwards said this. Edward covers the cowboys. He's locked in on the cowboys. Anybody and he said one upbringing Troy Aikman to help run this team and I said but not done WanNa do that unless you go black and be the savior for the cowboys. But you still have to deal with Jerry Jones. This is From Troy Aikman. He was interviewed yesterday day on thirteen ten the ticket and he said that it's something that he's always. A considered land somewhat entertained by and said that he might be the interested in joining a team but not the Dallas cowboys. Isn't that interesting. Doesn't that send a strong message to Jerry. Jones that troy. I would like to do this like John. Elway or John Lynch but he said that and I want to get exact quote here though. He sees another frontier. But he doesn't see doing it with the Dallas cowboys. And Jerry. I think you know he's entr even said look the problems start. Sort of it's a guy who's paying the bills and Jerry's the guy who's paying the bills but if you could get jerry to step away. Hey from being the general manager which is not possible. Then maybe you could have somebody come in and actually take that job and say all right. I had this job with total autonomy. Yes doesn't it'd be like Troy. Aikman is going to get like a three year contract extension at Fox in about a day or two with a big race like a college football coach. I'm waiting for Arkansas. To give him a contract tracked offer. Doesn't Arkansas give everybody a contract offer. And then they go back to their other job yes taught and also on the ticket troy was asked about them as far as joining specifically the cowboys front office he goes I I doubt it. I think it's a real long shot. I believe it's unlikely Jerry will ever bring anybody in. That can help this football team in that regard. Just because he's been real stubborn and steadfast and that he's the one in charge. I think in a lot of ways until back changes. This team is going to have some problems. Yeah well I mean Troy's perceptive with that and I think you have to go in with your eyes wide open while all we think it's a great job. I don't think it is a great job because Jerry doesn't make a great job you get blamed if it goes bad. He gets the credit if it it goes right yes I see that statement was also a great way to make sure you're never going to get the cowboys by saying you know the teams ever going to be any good until Jerry steps away. That's ringing Tony. Dungy the hall of Famer. NBC He football night in America analyst and of course the former head coach in the NFL. Is that a desirable job. Tony it's open. I think it really could be. You've got all you need to win. They have one there in the past to be the right type of person that as you say you have to be able to go in there and not want on any credit and not be mad if you get the blame but just make sure you win and You know Jimmy Johnson. Did that for a long time and they were successful and other got going in there for a short time. I've been successful but I think you can. Yeah I just worry that it feels like Jerry gets more involved. He's not getting less less involved. It feels like he's more involved as the years. Go on well. They've done some pretty good things. It's just You know something is best in there. I can't quite put my fan growing up close and you got a lot of resources there. I played this. It's a lot better than some other jobs. I the reason why I wanted to have you on on is what's going on with. The Patriots feels like people don't want to hear the details. They already believe the Patriots cheated. Or you believe that it's a witch which on if you're a Patriot fan here. I'm just curious Tony. What what could I film of an opposing coach? That could benefit me. Because you're allowed to talk to your quarterback into his in his helmet. This is in college where you're doing these hand gestures on or holding up. Placards on the sideline. So what exactly could I get out of this this. Yeah this is much to do about nothing. I'm not sure why the Patriots would do that. Why they would take eight minutes of someone else's sideline but you're not gonna get that anything that you can really use? Everyone is talking now. Everyone is you. Put the cards up over their face. So you can't even live read I'm not sure what they would get that that would benefit them so to me. It's yeah it's breaking the room. I don't know why they would do that. It could be very innocent. It could be Just the Patriots agents trying to make you think that they're doing something that you have to change your sideline procedures a little bit. I don't know why would do versus the Cincinnati Bengals A. Ah One winning team. None of it makes sense but I really just don't think there's much advantage to be gained at all. Yeah but you know it's still the Patriots and that's where ware says. Hey I didn't know anything about this and you know kind of trust me Dan. There's nothing that goes on in that organization that he doesn't know anything about how can promise you that I said the same thing Tony. I just can't imagine that they've got some freelance film crew and they're doing this these features in he knows nothing about that. Nothing happened there that he knows nothing about. What do you think the? NFL does in a situation. Mike this is a tough one because again it really is a very minor problem. If was anybody else but the Patriots they would just say. Hey you know what this you you gotta be careful and let's move forward. There's going to be a lot of puts on both sides. There's going to be pushed from as you say that the Patriot Learn smile. That says. Hey we've got a punish them and this is terrible I I'm not sure I would not want to be in the NFL position. I'm not sure what they're gonNA do. Yeah I think it feels like it's just going to be maybe a hefty fine. Maybe it's one hundred thousand dollars here because they're repeat offenders here and even though they admitted hey we did something. Sorry we did it. We didn't know we were doing it. We didn't get anything out of this. And here's the other thing that bothers me when somebody who's well. Why would they do that against the bengals? Also they would do that against the Ravens. But they wouldn't do that against the Bengals is what you're saying it's like no you can't you can't answer it that way We wouldn't do it against the bengals. No it's I I'm not sure. Why and the explanation well? Hey we're looking at our scouts trying to sell the job they do. Why are you then focused? Eight minutes on the other side line. Why Not Focus Eight minutes on your scouts and what they're doing but Yeah the whole thing is bizarre. I just not sure what the NFL should do at this boy. And as far as the Patriots product on the field here Tony Because you were in battles there with them and felt like you know maybe had him in a down year or two different in team or maybe they weren't as good but it still feels like they're dangerous but maybe I'm maybe it's just because I trust Bella check and Brady historically I am I am I over hyping them. Are they really not that great. No let's go back one year exactly one year. They played the Miami emme dolphins and Ryan Fitzpatrick Eight. The defense and the dolphins thirty four thirty three and then the next week they played the steelers and and Tom Brady group only score ten points. They lost two games in a row in December and we saw the same thing. The Sky's falling and the Patriots are done and six six weeks later the super bowl teams that know how to win teams. That had good coaching and and quarterback Tom Brady. You can't count them out. AH I. Don't like their offense right now. I don't know whether they help is coming from last year. They had some guys who next up a little bit and they came back but they're going to play special teams and they're gonNA play defense and they're gonNA play sound offense and run the ball and they've got Tom Brady. Nobody's GonNa WanNa play them in the playoffs. I I'M NOT SAYING THEY'RE GONNA win the Super Bowl but they're not going to be an easy out but if you're looking at the best team in the AFC the Ravens. Oh by by far and I think the ravens that they played them ten time And if they play eight times in Baltimore they'd beat em seven times They played them ten. They'd probably beat them eight overall but in the playoffs. It's at at one time you get a punt block you'd get something happens a return You just have a day where low scoring. That's how they can win so it you know I I wouldn't bet on the Patriots beating the Ravens but It could happen before I let you go. You being a defensive minded guy played defensive. Sit back if I said come up with a game plan for Lamar Jackson. Could you come up with. I couldn't right now and I'll tell you Dan Dan. What's going to happen When I was coaching we'd get all these college coaching staff in this? Come visit us and we want to talk about this and defending the passing game. And how do you got this. What kind of drove you run? What you're going to see is a lot of professional defensive? Coaching staff taking visits the spring to College College football. They'RE GONNA go to Nick Sabin Alabama. They're gonNA go to tableau. Sweeney they're GONNA go in. What do you do with this? Read option how do you defend this because NFL coaches don't know this has been going on this offense we see from Baltimore. Everybody runs it and in college football. Something stop it. Well well Alabama stops and well But nobody knows how to deal with us in the NFL. It's GONNA be a year to catch up the only thing I was thinking an and once again we. I think we have the blueprint like Buffalo. Got The blueprint. Well Buffalo's got a really good defense. I still think if I can make him throw outside the numbers here then and then I have a pretty good. I have a better chance with that. I have to be able to contain him running but if he does throw I don't want him using the middle of the field. I WANNA WANNA see if he can be accurate and have the arm strength to throw it outside the numbers there. But I don't know who has that ability to be able to do it unless it's you know. Say someone like San Francisco. Well that's the formula the two teams that have played them the best. I've seen up in buffalo and Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh played them early through a couple lavigne exceptions. They pretty much stopped running. But these teams with great speed. They played a lot of zone and they crowded the middle of the field. Buffalo made one mistake they got into man coverage coverage and they got confused. Like up the long touchdown pass on the floor and coverage but other than that. They'd played them pretty well. And I think that's what you have to do. You GotTa have a lot of speed. Need to to run him down on those options. And you've got a crowd the middle of the field and making through to the wide receivers outside the numbers but it's tough to do all that Because you gotta use your safeties in the run game you've got to make sure you're you're aggressive tackling. They put a lot of pressure on good visit with you Tony. Who Do you guys have on Sunday night? We have buffalo against Pittsburgh. It'd be great. My town has done a great job. Sean McDermott has and two teams fighting for the playoffs. That I'M GONNA it'll be excited to see great to talk to you. Tone best to the family you to think about that Tony Dungy. NBC Football Night in America. Continental tire. Coach's Corner Yeah. I know that I came up with a game plan to somehow contain Lamar Jackson. It's do you have the weapons to be able to do that. I I WANNA I WANNA CL- clutter up the middle of the field. I'm going to crowd that and I'm wanting to throw outside. I got to get him to throw outside the numbers and then you just hope that he doesn't rush for one hundred yards. He loves his tight ends. Mark Ingram has been great here. You know running that option it's really deceptive. And and I still think you got a hall of fame kicker. Like there's other things that you gotta factor in here you gotTA coaches want to Super Bowl. You gotTa Hall of fame. Kicker Ker and one of their games will come down to a kick in the plows more than likely and the defense has been pretty good. I think the defense likes the fact act. Lamar's gotten all this attention and nobody's really focusing on them. The defense has been pretty stout here and they won on the road. They've gone against some of the best competition. And we've seen a team go against and be successful against in recent memory and their battle-tested if he'd get a little bit of a cushion you get home. Field advantage inch can't let New England have home field advantage. You can't because if they do they're still that doubt because it's new England at home and I know they just lost their. They've been beaten by the division leaders so far. But there's still that doubt I would have. Can I beat New England. I'm in New England. Can I beat the Patriots again. Do you think this catch on. Teams will start scouting. True read option quarterbacks true because they run an option run on still to be able to throw right. But do you think that is going to catch on or this is just Lamar Jackson specific. I think it's Lamar Jackson specific. Because I don't know. How many look could the quarterbacks who were the top quarterback right now just in her I mean to is not a runner? He's done a Lamar Jackson runner. Joe Borough is might be more of a runner under the Tula you know. These guys are scramblers. They're very athletic. Justin Field Trevor Lawrence. So the top quarterbacks will be coming out in the next next two years are not going to. They're not anywhere near what. Lamar Jackson is as an athlete as a running club. Boy Bad jalen hurts. Well I see I just don't know what discounts think of him and I'm trying to get my my sources scout to give me a read. He says he hasn't studied jalen hurts. You know he studied him at Alabama. Didn't study him at Oklahoma so just trying to get a gauge of is he a first round draft pick here. I don't know he went went from. He's probably not getting drafted to being a maybe a first round or second round draft pick because of what Lincoln Riley did with Emit Oklahoma which is amazing in one in year that transformation or that talent was there. It wasn't going to get drafted as an Alabama quarterback but as an Oklahoma quarterback he is Yemen club. It strikes me. He has a lot of intangibles like he looks like. He's a veteran quarterback leading that you know he just at Alabama to just looked like the leader at all times. But I don't know if he's capable edible of doing this in the NFL me. Lamar Jackson did some Hercules. Being Things at Louisville you had to go out of your way to find him or you just watch the highlights but he did amazing things. They're Louisville he did throw the ball well at Louisville but people. I didn't think he could make the transition to being a pocket passer and he's been a pocket passer the NFL people think he just. Hey you know I believe the Rpo any runs it a lot. And if he's running on the run when he throws no he's been in the pocket I think he's thrown for more touchdown passes in the pocket than any other quarterback this year earliest. He's up there in the top three Yama Club. I'm thinking about these quarterbacks who run for fifteen hundred yards in college like labar like Johnny Mandel ran for fifteen fifteen hundred yards. You'd think in today's NFL. He could do some of that in the pros for five years ago. It didn't work at all. I mean he ran for what fourteen hundred crazy xenia. Rookie year. His freshman year he led the SEC in rushing. I don't think he was a great show. I thought he. He was great at improvising. And he had my cabins Gavin there to to always bail him out. Put Up. You know it's one of the great seasons. It College quarterback has ever turned in. I just don't think that that was something that was and I was wrong wrong on it because I thought you know what if you can having go in let him improvise and you know maybe if he took the game more seriously than maybe he could have but but you know he just. He wasn't professional but I don't think he was a great pocket. Passer in you have to be a pocket passer at some point in your career at some point point game and Johnny Manziel just I think he likes getting out and improvising ad-libbing. Yeah mclovin. Well maybe Lamar Jackson Scott blow up that theory that you need to be a pocket passer important. But he's been a pocket passer right. I think that's lost on people. They just think that you know he goes all Willy Nilly in. Hey My my first reads not there. I just Tuck it and go. He's he's been good from the pocket it just. He's so dangerous when he runs the football I I want to ask Emmanuel Sanders. Who will join US next on the sidelines watching Lamar Jackson when the niners played the Ravens? I'm curious what these guys see. When you see a quarterback with that size that athleticism who gets out on the edge and you're in trouble? Yeah Lamar Jackson. Last Two Years Louisville he ran for sixteen hundred yards and sixteen hundred yards in. Two thousand. Thirteen game hurts his at about thirteen hundred this year which which which is. Completion percentage in college jalen hurts. Because I think he put up some really good numbers with Lincoln Riley. You've said recently that he sort of disappointed you the last month. Yeah but I don't know if it's defense is kind of caught up with them a little bit or they played better competition but he didn't remember when he first started. We thought he WHO's winning the Heisman in September. The what a weird career. Two Thousand Sixteen Alabama. He threw twenty three touchdowns nine pics then through seventeen touchdowns and one pick then he got benched at Alabama benched after those two seasons basically and then Oklahoma. He's a seventy percent passer. Thirty six hundred yards thirty two touchdowns seven interceptions mclovin. Also that have you seen any stats on Justin Herbert. He threw for six seven percent and like seventy eight percent of completions or bubble screens. Yeah so you can't even read completion completion Virginia. Any more. You're right it's a weird stat and you're right yards per pass. Attempt is always interesting if you're looking at completion percentage that's one thing it's Tom Brady can complete you know what hasn't in the last three games. He's barely completing fifty percent of his passes but yards per pass attempt. That's that's where it gets that that's where you have a little bit better. A deep dive on somebody to see how accurate they truly are. Yeah that'd be the SAM. Bradford all those records for at least we'll take a break play the day coming up next year in the Dan. Patrick show hey listeners. Just wanted to take a minute to thank all our great sponsors and all all of you great listeners. For supporting this podcast.

That's the heat radio network work. It ain't over till it's over Lenny. Kravitz the heat. Were down six. trae young was seen mouthing. It's over and Miami Winston in overtime one thirty five to one. twenty-one Kendrick Nunn lead all scores with thirty six the heat host Lebron brought in the Lakers Friday night. Who is Derek Jones Junior by Jerry Jones? Junior this third is Derek. Must be very proud. I'd never heard of that name in my entire life. And none was with the Golden State Warriors and then I think that they let him go and then Miami swooped in and signed him and I think I mean he's. He's been a godsend for that team. He's been really good. Yeah I don't know if you want a part of this dam but I had the leading scorers in the NBA. Last night. If I name these players and I think you might be able to. Can you name the team. They play on Davis Bertrand's poured in thirty two nine last night. mclovin I think is a big Fan Davis Bertrand's not Bertrand Davis missed now like Joe it's Davis Bertrand's. He plays for the Washington Wizards Dan. Yeah he's a wizard devante. Graham devante Grandma Ramat twenty. Nine points is a Hornet. I hear Will Barton the twenty six for your nuggets This why ratings are down. All the Andre Hunter had twenty eight for the Hawks he Think that Virginia last night. Yeah yeah he was supposed to be the defensive guy but but trae young is on record. It's the report is that they're getting help in Atlanta. I don't know if that's Kevin Love but Kevin Love. I think would like to go back to Oregon which is where he's from and got family back there. Maybe go back to Portland but I thought UTAH. Over the summer I was told Kevin Law probably to UTAH. And maybe Utah's still in the mix but I think Miami Heat could be another place for him like he's still putting up good numbers. He's not putting up twenty five fifteen that he did in Minnesota but he's still putting up some respectable numbers there for a bad team and you're paying him thirty million dollars a year. Yes mclovin I just kinda thought. Kevin Love was from L. A.. Because of his is a born in Santa Monica yeah but he grew up he remembered denny play high school. He was unbelievable in Oregon Oregon member he would have those outlet passes. That'd be full car like nobody and one type thing. Yeah that's the stuff I like to watch. Gotcha Lake Oswego High School Oregon. Yeah so I could see maybe Portland foreign. I don't know but now that you have mellow maybe you don't need Kevin Love you don't want another guy doesn't play defense there. Oh that would be a great. There's certain guys that I would love to see guard me and even in my age. I'm be like all right like I wouldn't be that nervous. I might get a bucket off of one of these guys play of the day brought to you by dollar shave. Dave club products. Second to none. See for yourself just five dollars ultimate shave start. Who said basically everything you need for an amazing shave after that? The restock box ships regular size products that regular prices prices get yours at dollarshaveclub dot com slash Patrick and the guys. TNT were rough and up Joel embiid last night. Basically Gli saying you're not good enough to be acting the way you you. I don't know Joel embiid. I think he loves being viewed as great and well paid paid. I don't know if he works hard at being great and well-paid. I mean I watch him and I go what I think. We'll look back on his career and and go what could have been. I mean I think he has that unbelievable potential footwork and I love his was attitude. He's very fun loving. But I I need to see a killer instinct if winning if championships are important to you and I don't know if they are but it feels like the sixers Are Destined to disappoint. Yeah mclovin but I mean every night Simmons and Embiid can get your triple double if you count turnovers as staff. Wow Wow there's so many the thirteen to zero at home and he killed joker last night. Everybody is good at home and only the Lakers are going on the road. It feels like maybe the box new problem. Yeah that's right the buck they they win everywhere. That's what you want to see when you get to playoffs his. How good are you on the road? Because chances are you might have to steal a victory on the road somewhere.

They were able to compete with the Ravens for like five minutes before they got blown out but once these two teams are done. I cannot wait to talk about what they're going to look like next year because this year is another mess boomer just got out of his trailer. skews US yeah.

Perfect she's seen a lot of hands. She's seen a lot of hands and she said perfect cans cans trailer is really nothing in the trail or other than small kind of trailer. This Fisher in like a bowl of snacks snacks like like it was most mostly my wardrobe out ahead aware in the In the commercial not like little tiny bottles of water now maybe little small the cans of Ginger Ale and other sodas. Nothing like that that they had all that stuff on set always do but they treated this thing like it was a movie of course it was. It's pretty cool. You know how much it cost to put a commercial during the super bowl thing. I know you just forget like when you're in. La What does the whole thing was like other other studio joy. louis-dreyfus was doing something. I don't know if it was her veep show or whatever she but she was over there shooting something did she come over and say she didn't. Unfortunately Selena didn't get did get a chance to run this commercials got a bunch of famous people in it. In addition to you well I would say famous to appoint their influencers silencers in their world. You know what I'm saying so I was telling Al.. The one of the people that went before me in this particular commercial was Meghan. You're allowed had to say somebody's name say some of the names okay. Let's go Meghan. The Stallion Megan the stallion. Yeah should check out her video man. Megan the stallion alley. We tell our today was sunk. Megan the hot girl. Summer wisteria being hot girl summer.

The kid that won a three million bucks he was there. I believe he's there. Yeah and and an article or was there you know. There's one other name that I thought it was in this commercial. Yeah Yeah but I'm not sure she is yet so I don't want to mention that name I can only talk peripherally about some of these and you can't say the product any no not yet which is strange because you'd think they'd want they will. They'll bill bill us us to to promote the whole thing. Sure Yeah Man. What an experience it? Well I've done this stuff before I know I understand you have but still experiences and not. Yeah though it it is the the amount of time and effort that goes into these things I mean is is really amazing. I don't think unless you truly understand our been a part of something like this the amount of effort that is put into thirty seconds. Yeah it's it's amazing. It's amazing money spent over. The crew is great and the the creative team is great. And then you have off the people from the manufacturer you know you have all these different levels of people lot a handshake and a lot of names. You won't remember. Yeah but I. I'll you know a couple of people people here most of the The AD agencies here New York. I'll really right down or all big listeners of boomer and Geo wow now I do believe yes if you down down here and you're in New York. It's something I can believe in. The director was huge. Bengals fan has a picture of himself on his phone at the age of twelve. LIKE WITH MY JERSEY. Wow so I thought it was good home. Yeah next time I got to be a part of this than we go. We all need to be a part of this thing next time wherever they be a part part of it. Yeah we need to. We need to go on the plane and we need to be in the trailer. Why well I just think that it's something that we all need to do together? This was this. This was a little bit of a separation ration- from us and we were talking separated. Yeah when we were talking yesterday was sort of just it. Just the whole thing didn't feel right is around the holidays to where it's supposed to be closer. You aren't here there's like man. We really should've been with him yesterday just for support. This amazing is that when I finally got to my room yeah and fell asleep and I woke up when I woke up. You guys had already been off the air over the so. Yeah we were done with the show. Yeah right so I was so my call. Time was eight o'clock. Eleven o'clock local here clock there My my alarm went off at seven o'clock which is when we're done. I was just thinking about it was like man. Those guys are done. I'm just getting. Yeah crazy yeah that whole time change thing so you mentioned engine how there was some listeners that ran into yesterday and said I've got a brand new listener for you. This is something that That we talked about while you were out to film and this commercial yesterday. I believe that you influenced fluency influence. That's probably why I'm part of this commercial you influence the the Garrett Cole press conference I did I I believe you did. I'd only read about it but I didn't I didn't I don't know where or how I could have influenced it all. It's easy now. You tell me honestly when I try. Try to connect the dots for you. If you're with me so Garrett Kohl's press conference start at eleven. Am Okay at nine thirty. Roughly between nine twenty ninety nine thirty. We had Anthony Davis on. Yes I believe that's the time that Garrett Cole would be traveling to this press conference we'll be right around nine nine twenty nine and you think that first of all not driving his own. He's not always in the car but he's also a guy when he first arrived here picked up a copy of the New York Post and he looked at that. He's probably thinking it's my day. Let me flip on the Yankees flagship station. Sports Talk Station. They're talking about me. 'cause no one's going to say a bad thing about me right now. Let me flip this on. He happens to hear the Anthony Davis interview at the end. The Anthony Davis interview. You say to him pressure is a privilege. Would you say at least five six times a week and you happen to say that he Davis. Oh Yeah Okay Yeah I get it so this is like your phrase so I I free Billie Jean King we found. That's in the autobiography. Whatever but I I did read the Billie Jean King Autobiographies possibility? I happen to think that he was listening. Listen in the car on the way this thing all right okay. He regurgitates it in the press conference. Next thing everybody's running with this pressure is a privilege thing like oh oh man like Sweeney Mardi like you never heard that before he was going nuts during the coverage sweeney pressure. The Fremont's. That's Great Joe and Evan when we're talking about elite Oh man when a great freeze what a great free Adele. Now pressure is a privileged. Because you know they're going to have to replace the you know the great one. Oh Yeah of course right. Yes on that pressure on them to deliver they better show show up their their ratings. Better be good or they're going to get the data. Cheese it is weight is for all of us. You know I listen. I understand the way it should complain that they don't know what they're doing yet but when they ended up getting to do what they're going to end up doing. Yeah get ready. Pressure is a privilege I love. Those guys are GonNa do well well. I'm not saying that they won't but I'm just saying they will experience exactly what Garrett Cole was talking about. Yeah so you're GONNA be a big seat. There's going to be pressure so get ready for it so are you. Are you with me on this. Do you believe that. That's the way that these events it may have. I don't know Garrett as a kid a guy he's no longer a kid anymore but I think he kind of gets it. That's the one thing I will tell you after reading all the different re responses on twitter and everything else about the way that he carried himself and how he won the press conference which is always important when you first get here. Some guys flood their stub their toe or make a mistake. He did not make a mistake as a matter of fact. If I'm a Yankee Fan I'm like man Damn just got one of the bad guys in the In Major League baseball you remind reminds me a little bit in his personality and his in his belief and his confidence about who he is a AH like Roger Clemens. I went back in the last night coming back. I was looking at Roger. Clemens stats and stuff when he was with the Yankees. He didn't get here and told a little bit later in his career but still was a dominant. I'm GonNa pain in the ASS and if if I had to tell you that you know if there was one guy I could pick that was available via free agency. It would be this guy just because that personality we now he's making three hundred twenty four million dollars which is mind boggling to me. They gave him nine years. which is mind boggling to me? In five years of He's good he'll opt out and maybe he'll go somewhere else. Another another nine year contract. I don't know but for all intents and purposes I would say that everything that he said. Is Everything that Yankee Bench. You want to hear the only thing that really is it's troubling is that you'll lose. DD gregorious you may lose some other players down the line because of this massive contract that he has now he's going to have to love to. It's a million to start. Yeah I also think I'm looking at it like you. Break it up into thirds and if they go and win a championship in these first three years of this contract. That's GONNA make the rest of it a little more digestible and I think the first couple of years especially especially this first year. What we saw him do in the second half and in the postseason? You WanNa talk about expectations. My God the guy's the real deal and he and the reason he's the real deal is because of the way he he acts on the mound in the big spots and all that other stuff. That's why I got the contract. Your other thing that I do really appreciate about him is that you know he thanked curt flood. Thank Marvin Miller. He understands thanks you too well but he understands the history of baseball a lot of athletes. Today don't understand and the true history of what has gone on their leagues for them to be benefiting the amount of money that they're getting paid this guy. Does he gets it. Apparently the backstory behind that is when he was with the pirates their backup catcher for a year or two John Balk us term ways. Yeah used to quiz. The the rookies on and that stuff. I love that the history of baseball players associated things like that. So that's how that happened. So so this was you with Anthony Davis just to let everybody know him not making his thing up. This is what Garrett Cole heard in my opinion okay and then regurgitated it in the press conference. What kind of pressure? You want pressures or privilege. Anthony Aguado Me Eric Cole. In the car and the pressure is a privilege. Your pressure comes in in situations that you earned ah love it. Pitching big gains in September and October. Because you've played well all year Did you hear him say right at the end of one. Right right right. We could the PAT Shurmur. Oh let's let's hope not But I do think that he understands that he always wanted to be Yankee for three hundred. Twenty four million dollars. I would want to be a Yankee. Yeah and I do believe there is some truth to the fact that he wanted to be a Yankee cared and kept the sign and all that stuff that was assigned true. Yes it is a hundred percent. He's had anybody who thinks it wasn't as it just four and I know that you know I don't even WanNa talk about it was short Mirage. Came in to What was it yesterday? Maggie and Bart. It is so many changes. I can't keep up with them anymore. But anyway it was on with Muslim Barbie. It's like David Quinn. Change in lines for the Rangers every other every other shift for God's sake so Can the guys play together for a game or two Scots Yeah. I don't see the Corey but anyway. So Sean rash comes in those like ten minutes yesterday on Maggie and Bart about about signed being fake and it can't fade that exact way like the thing should have been rolled off what he's worried about. Apparently he's just you know you. You definitely the sign but anyway back to your point. Yes I do think there is something to the Yankees and the STAHL JE thing with him. But I don't don't believe for one minute that he would have taken fewer dollars. No no he had. He had a Yankee but he had to maximize Boris. Boris even told as I was reading these. The articles told Cashman. Wait a couple of days. Because you're going to have a little bit more information at your fingertips understand what is going to take your call. And that was waiting for Stephen Strasburg to sign his seven year deal with the nationals. And then according to Cashman wants that deal was signed now all of a sudden ercole became that much more expensive. And the Bianchi's. Here's the thing that I appreciate it just from a fan standpoint bats my team that I am rooting for like I was so happy. That the that the That the Rangers got true and Perrin as Ranger Fan. I was like all right. We spent the money. We're going to get it. We have the money and these are the guys. Nobody cares about hockey up. These are the guys that we actually targeted and we went out and got them and they're they're paying off they're paying dividends they're living up to their contracts reputations and expectations this same. Same thing with this guy. Everybody knew he was the best pitcher on the market. That was the guy you go get and if you have the money you have the ability. There's no reason why you shouldn't get them especially a kid. When he was a ten year old loved the Yankees by the way? These live plants in here have been hatching bugs. There was bug eggs in here just I wanted to give have you heads up. This reminded me I was looking at this where you talk about hockey. My mind was wandering and I S- looked in in here. Yesterday I saw a bug fly out right into my eye and then then about seven. Thirty same thing happened to Jerry so I guess there were gags in these live plants. In our Christmas decorations they have since hatched in this nice warm environment environment that we have provided for them. Well turn down the heat and now they're they're. They're living there living in here with us when I came into. CBS sports minutes this morning. Eddie was watering on the planet. That's right he's taking care of.

Yeah I mean I'll take the enamel off your teeth stuff works. No I know I know and I had a problem with these giant Wealth Nano locusts. No Damn Keta killer wasps those things. Those things are good right yet but they were. They were like aggressive but they need to be aggressive. They're WASPS Yemen's right. So but but they were like not supposed to come after us. Go to the CICADAS. I remember like trying to chase after them with the raid and I could never get him because there were so damned quick. You know what you need. You need the spray. Bray Foam spray foam. Yeah what's that. It shoots a stream off. It's like a little more controllable target shooting right. I would say though it trying to take got a wasp nest with one of those things. You're taking your life into your own spray foam. No compass to whole thing and then they try to crawl out but these things they live in the ground the kilowatt they dig holes borough. It's crazy. Something's gotta eat them right. I don't know each those Al Chipmunks I was GONNA say Shit I can't those things are after nuts and berries and stuff man. They're not after during say I'm thinking birds some sort of bird with about a beaver. Now beavers not going after Sakina killer wasp sound like something Eddie Eddie would know. It's that I would guess if they do have creditors it's birds. Yeah it's got to be some sort of like a blue jay or something. I don't think it's a blue djinn. No Talk Nasty. The Hawk is after the small Jesse flying around your neighborhood. I am plenty actually get a lot of Blue Jays by US Blue Jays and car. Aw Hawks are going after squirrels rats in small dogs. Pomeranian humphry going. Yeah yeah they're not going after in Saxon it's definitely. It's definitely a sparrow or something something like that the sparrow. Yes sparrow or a chicken de WanNa hear the word sparrow. I always think of like rory a a poem or something. Yeah there's the Capistrano Sparrows Toronto or something. Yeah always thinking like bird that you throw in a poem somewhere sure. Red breasted Robin. Perhaps something like that. Jerry has an update for us on this football Friday. What's going on Jerry by the auto group hurry into the season of adventure? Sales Event at Land Rover Edison and the new land rover moral. Yeah Week Sixteen tripleheader tomorrow Texans and Tampa Patriots bills niners and rams on Sunday. You've got to take out the garbage here now and now. It's ridiculous Sunday. You've Full Cup of coffee that was teetering on the top of a pile of garbage over here. That's probably Steve Though the one. Am Yeah Okay. I will say though. Mark Chernoff brought in a much larger garbage pail into my office and emptied my garbage in front on a business. Oh He's the Guy Journal. It's getting stuff done right there. Either way you do that for the studio right. He loves throwing stuff out. That's one of his favourite pastime. Just just throwing stuff out just wants to get rid of refrigerators. I sort of think. Yeah one day the MINK. Oh out of the garbage. It's crazy. He's just his legs. Were in the regardless. Yeah this is. I'm not kidding. He loves throwing stuff out now. I remember that said he should take a look at that refrigerator in your office. It's now that's a health hazard book anyway The jets play the steelers. Sam Darnold knows it'll it'll be a challenge for sure I just gotTa continue to play Smart Football and Yeah but they're they're really good defense and they're they're really good upfront. Exceptions jet steelers Levy on Bell is obviously a topic. Numbers might not be there for L. This year but he's made an impact according to Adam he's been great the aspect of whatever he needs to do to help the team Chernoff. He's he's always. We spend whatever whatever we ask them to do. He's just done it. This is ridiculous. You take out there you go look at you he is. Yeah hold on the insulin. Ise discussing. It is true that I did throughout some insulin. But it wasn't Eddie's we had an engineer back at the time named Joe Ellis. Oh Okay and longer with us now years ago for that stuff out though. That's the point I do WANNA throw. Jj Out from. I would. I'd throw them out redecked crap in the paper today. Okay go look at it and then competitor to me Here's Levy on Bellany. Bed Blood personnel around here. His favorite thing in the world just can't get enough of that that we bring up like the changes around here. He loves that. Yeah Yeah more changes dumplings more lineup. Talk Forget about Garrett Cold Football Friday just talk about what about the giants lineup. No no no no no no. We don't know really that much about that lineup. We know a lot about this do we. Because I don't feel like nobody he knows Sorry Jerry giants play in Washington. Here's Pat Shurmur is Daniel. Jones plans strictly based on health. I think that was the kid. That's been the case all along. You know committed the data starter. He was started and he will be again. Assuming it's not just physical health mental health mentally healthy. We needed that one should be good. Should be good to go. And it's very similar to Sam Darnold last that's right and let's finish strong for both of these young quarterbacks and start building for the future and start thinking about what they can be next year. I cannot wait for these two teams to be done. I go Uniqlo your eight days away. Basically nine days away and I love football in the playoffs will be around. They just can't they. They have just sucked joy. Adamy in football watching these teams every week Cowboys Eagles Sunday. If the cowboys win they win. The division they've got Dak Prescott got with a C.. Joint Sprain or soreness whatever so how's he doing better Some of that Mobility it's all improving as the kids will. It'll be good to go somewhere. So I am so conflicted on Dak Prescott. I WANNA pay the kid so my I want to pay him at thirty five million dollar. You're going to I going to end up having being too. I don't know who else it's like. There's so much to like about him and then there's that little piece of like can't can he do it and I believe they they can so do i. I'm with you and I and I think that as far as kind of like representing your team and being a solid Disney everything yes. He's a perfect for that all right. So if Russell Wilson is on a scale of one to ten and NFL franchise quarterback. Where would you put him? I'd have to say put them right now. I can I if Russell Wilson is a five on a one to five scale and I wonder if I've wears Dak Prescott well three and a half four but I got. He's got a win playoff games right. I would think you gotTa Win Playoff. Because that's that's where I would sort of compare them to like he's same type guy. He's not proposal Wilson Lot but right he's not but that's the type of guy compare him to of he can't. That's his ceiling is where Russell Wilson is right now. Will he ever reach that. The thing about it is that Russell Wilson was in two super bowls. When he was younger right? I stopped saying right. Stop saying right right right right so back Prescott. Since the day he started there. I think he's got what sixty four sixty five five straight starts. He is a perfect guy after every game. The perfect press conferences win or lose During during the week win or lose never changes has not held out this year at all. No He's basically he's better on himself he want right. He's like Joe FLACCO did he. You know he's betting on himself to be a a little better. Yeah I know but you're right off the field face of the franchise in Waco. He's really good hard not to say I want that around Jerry. Jones wants it around. The question is now. Is he going to wait. WHO's GonNa Somebody's somebody's GonNa wait to see what Jack gets to determine what they're going to get an one? I'm trying to think of the other quarterback Patrick Mahomes now Patrick's on a whole different level. He's going to get a huge contract no matter what are thinking about it in a second. But but that's the thing about the Dallas cowboys hadn't four four now. Were they going to get the money to pay him and how much they're gonNA pay him. That means Amari Cooper is probably GONNA be looking for a job some world. You'll get it. He will get it saints. Titans on Sunday as well George Jenkins now in New Orleans and happy to be there no better. I'm blessed he's blessed He was asked if he was treated fairly by the giants. I'm not upset Like I said business is business. I love New York New York. Of course the end on wall is ready to play football as much as he really ticked me off him saying businesses business still makes me laugh yes. He's an idiot. We all know this Tom Koppen was relieved of his duties as we know running the Jaguars and so what a lot of guys noticed in the locker room. Aj boy as they say. Boy Ain't got any hear me. I look I had an extra five minutes. I was good. The clocks were change. Even Klay as Campbell known as a real art show the coach of different now. Both of these guys gushed about Coughlin's this was not negative. They were very positive toward players. I don't see the audio but a lot of the other players are happy. He's gone these you were not they were in favor of this is what we talked about two days ago with the NFL PA talking about free agency and how their grievances against this team in any other teams are all the other the teams combined. I think I saw the stories that he planned to leave at the end of the year. Anyway so why did they had to do this to what shame him because of that. NFL PA memo. That went out like why. Don't you just let them leave under snow that for sure. I mean that that I read that same story. I don't know necessarily that was the case. But SHOD COM put his foot down said look. This is going to be the deal. We're going to do something about it because we're going to be going in the free agency we gotta figure out what we're doing. I would think it was also I would say it's more Orvin. Indictment of the general manager that gave Nick foles is kind of money and gave Blake bortles that kind of money and they drafted Blake. Bortles what third overall. Aw Yes yeah. which is a major major problem if forget about the disciplinary thing or Doug marrone and Jalen Ramsey I mean the fact that they drafted Blake Bortles and then thought thought that the solution wants Bortles was gone? Was Nick foles. That's the situation Uranus. Because of those two decision falls is one of those guys the more you see the less you like short bursts backup quarterback big spot okay. He's proven it a man to ask him to make it through a sixteen game season healthy number one and number two coming back back and playing at the level that he played in the Super Bowl. Yeah and not in an eagles uniform. He cannot succeed outside of that. Eagles not going to happen so that was a waste of fifty the million dollars. He's giving me a waste of waste. Your fifty million on me please. The Spurs beat the nets one. Eighteen one zero five costly asleep too. Because David Naba suffered a torn Achilles for Brooklyn who fall fifteen and thirteen. Patty Mills twenty-seven off the bench eight of fourteen shooting. You with the bucks. beat the Lakers offers one eleven one zero four Milwaukee. Twenty five and four the Lakers twenty four and five Janas Am KUPA thirty. Four points. Eleven rebounds and seven assists rockets over the clippers. One twenty ninety two to one seventeen Nixon Miami Tonight Seton Hall beating number seven Maryland Fifty to forty eight and they do it without miles Powell as you know eight point let me days I. I watched the whole second half of this game. This game was thirty. Thirty eight two thousand nine for about seven minutes of game action. Nobody can score now. Smith for Cornwall. All the pirates blocked. I WANNA say sixteen shots blocked Gill had six and Obiago had six each and so anytime Maryland tried to drive. The ball got swatted away horrific. Yeah and so forty eight points in a college basketball game. Yeah we'll rutgers helsing all the forty eight last week to that is a great win for Maryland seventh ranked team and they actually had gotten up to three. They had lost a Penn State Game Against Illinois where they I had to come back and win right within with callans miraculous finish and then they lose the Penn state. Now seton hall miles Powell but Dave they rally they rallied. I mean it's a really good team. They were ranked in the top ten right last week and they were still at twenty two points embarrassment. Okay duped loopy. WOFFORD eighty six fifty seven. The Players Association filed the Grievance Against the Yankees on behalf when Jacoby Ellsbury as they try to recoup the twenty six million dollars. You know you can't you. AH THAT'S A bad. That's a lousy contract that the Yankees gave out. Let's hope that the Derrick Garrett Cole does not turn out to be that way that's hope stand. Stan doesn't turn out to be that way. But you know that's your mistake. You sign again. What if he actually did violate the CBA? What getting treatment on? Listen we talked talked about rules and what you can do what you can't do if he actually actually violated the CBA. And they have a thing case and I think maybe he's GONNA loses loses money if he broke his actual actually broke his long a long frigging week if he broke his hang on his ranch riding a horse I whatever I would understand but it sounds to me like he was trying to get treatment a hundred injuries so he could get back legal treatment about well maybe the Yankees like look. We don't want you getting treatment because we don't want you back. There's no way. They announced his money speaking of injuries. And all that I see sports networks putting up the graphics of USS Benigno Gordo Perez on MLB network. Radio says cesspits is ready to roll. I'd spoken to you innocent. And he's hungry. He's hungry. How about that met fans says what cesspit has? I told them I'm not just going to hit forty home runs. That means you're going to be out on that field for one hundred and forty plus games and he goes. Then I'll be out there for one hundred forty in about that when you're lifting your contract that makes sense to me physically can't do that because because see him fail for feet of eighty your feed their surgically repaired. Oh come hitting. He's not left tackle as British. Would he feel how many years you contract. Yes but he needs to keep talking like this or the mets can trade them to an American very well the American Legion to take him until they see him. Hit the ball right exactly so h fine yes. Nothing's happening until I don't think they will have until spring training and people actually see him on the field that maybe who knows maybe broadening their wagon they may look at them go as fluid to the top right there. We're GONNA BEM overfilled you never know. I don't believe why not because NIMMO can make up for his lack of speed out in the outfield. A cover most of part Jerry. We haven't seen him in a long two two years. He's nasty time to recoup he's got three massive surgery he's got to heal surgeries. He's got an ankle surgery right now. It's I put the heels in college. Yeah no no no. That's that's tutor. I know he needs a new contract. Sometimes you just physically can't do it. I don't know that he's not physically. I gotTa feel like Oh. He's given some money back to that so it doesn't feel as bad. No asks questions. If the mets get money back they say the same back to the Insurance Prince Company. Good question I don't know the answer. They self insurer some state farm or they with Geico what what are they would've had to this. You know what but that's only something your brain would go to and it's very very smart about fifteen percent you save on car insurance now. You can present on that with assessment you have to give it back to the insurance companies. You have to pay taxes on the contract now. That's the other thing you wouldn't pay taxes until you get the money anyway trying to figure it didn't give mm assigning bonus I don't I don't believe know Barry. Sanders retired early. He had to pay a portion of the signing bonus. Back to the Detroit Lions. I don't know the mechanism mechanism for that or how the mathematics works hundred forty games. Yes would you take one twenty five right now in uniform hitting thirty home runs five Avarangal source game. Thirty five home runs hundred. Rbi Jerry if you had him in a lineup you could. You could protect the polar bear. Yes you could. It's all about L. Protection. A line of the polar bear conforto. Yeah all these I want. mookie betts no well. I love that movie best but I ain't happening. He's going to dodger somehow he's GonNa end up in the dodgers. You know that I know will know that he's actually gonNA end up with the Lakers conscious. I Want I want me go and do. That's who I want to stop. I can't wait to see him this year I can. I'm telling you he was the guy that got into the batter's box his rookie year and he is going to rip the cover off every single baseball. Yeah that's the guy that I wanna see as also a terrible infielder when you're in the ban it's not terrible. I mean like hey making my mic second baseman Robinson. Oh yeah well yeah. We'll get rid of them but do the the Yankees are not going to send and do our over here on the Yankees I am. I'm not doing anything with Andrew Hore on this. They won't pay him. You know the thing about it is. That's a guy you don't have to pay. So why do you trade only to get a superstar like a left handed Schwab Schwab. You won't WanNA stick now. You want to do that for a superstar superstar you got the you get lindores. Something that's when you trade into islanders be shooting shortstop maple leafs tonight. All right The islanders one again. What I wrote Devil's Wizard's castle devils scandal devils in wizards that'd be cool little Mash Adam? Silver's really getting creative because the NBA ratings are going down. So I did watch the entire island or Bruin game last night. I tally. Oh it was great. I was trying to find trying to find the basketball game for a Lebron. TNT It was not anywhere on the direct TV last night. I couldn't find this game last night between the Allison Bruins a great game. It was a great game. So were you on the plane in about. Let's say nine nine. PM Eastern time. Yeah so you. You had an opportunity to watch temptation island for now. I wasn't watching and you could have seen the reunion show after that. Jesus Mark L. Warmer Union show. Yeah it was when they all talk about what happened. It's great. They get them all together again. Mark L Walberg. The host of that was tweeting me last last night. Asking me to stay awake sure that I watched it live so I wouldn't be behind but I couldn't do it just so you just so you know that I don't stop thinking about so you want I'm not with you okay. Same here right. Thank you appreciate that. I was talking about this temptation island out in. La Oh were you. Yeah with some people and some people. Well no the couple over here in hoboken. Oh yeah that's right. Kate and David David and Kate did you like them to come in as guests. I don't like that David. I don't know man. What do you mean like the David as a little bit slippery guy not so album? Maybe you guys could do a podcast with them. Yeah that's a great idea. Yeah you try to see this. This is what I'm telling you so I'm always thinking about you especially when I was out there like in the entertainment world. Yeah that was part of it for like half an hour or so. AL's Big Fan of Kate. That's his favourite on the show so he would love that. Yeah there's a current season. Yes that guy is troubled. Oh yeah he is like the guy in Vegas or he's the one who had the threesome are they. They still together that we don't we don't know yet. The finale happened and please no spoilers from all right so these people were. I didn't know whether they were active active or they were from the previous previous season. The finale last night chances are they're not together because he had a relations with three different singles wall in the at one time guys villa a no two at once and then another one fell in love with him after the threesome. This is An navas what his name. Now I have no idea what is is is deja-vu. They don't put their last names out there. Kate and David and she's grown as a person so approach junk now. Yeah feel that thing. It's me recreating temptation island dialogue man. You're so on Monday. We obviously didn't stay up till eleven o'clock last night to watch tation island it's on our. DVR I'm going to have to call him on Monday to do the temptation island podcasts. After Alan is a guest via his pals phone yes. Yeah I know he's probably GonNa Guess Phone guest on a podcast. I'll have a nice headset in. It'll be crystal clear all right. Great thank I'm your captain. Now that's right. It's the morning show with boomer. esiason and Greg G. Nadi boomer and GEO now here's another gift giving from Al Dukes. If you have to get a gift for someone you don't really like get them a book. Nobody reads books anymore anymore. Books Suck you've heard of movies and the Internet right happy holidays everybody. The books are good thing. I don't read. There's many books these these days but just don't suck you know what I'm saying like you can't say the book Suck GonNa Reads at least twelve books a year. He's a big book Guy Right now. He likes the book itself. I mean you could send him a kindle thing Arkansas something for his ipad book and his likes having the book in his hand. He's not gonNA I book guy. I don't think he is. He likes books on tape by the way like he likes the book on tape like you do but he likes to have a solid book in his hand. Well he likes likes to take a picture of a blinky with the book also yes he does. He's very blankie in the book. Very big was the last book. You read The Bruce Springsteen springsteen autobiography how many years ago was this. I think that's probably two years ago or you know. I think this probably better than what I've done. I think it's probably like three or four years ago is to actually. We sat there and read a physical book. Pretty Bad and g tells me that my books on tape do not count. They don't because you're not reading the book. Just listen to something it's audio you're listening to audio. You mean if you could sit down and carve out time to actually read a book. But I can't that that's the thing that to me is different than listening while you're driving in all when you're listening to a book book. I may not read a lot of books but when you know I have a guest on Gametime or something. They have a book you he redel Peruse The book on a look at the really interesting things that I feel like that are interesting to me that I could feel comfortable talking about with a guest or something like that. But I'm always reading singly. They birds in internet. How I read more now than I've ever read before my life? Yeah I mean I mean obviously weren't where we read every web page sports website. Everything in the paper in the morning. That's different by next started aching. Because I was reading so much assists on this last trip I was on. Oh really looking down the whole time. Well that's the problem with the screen time and everything. It's it's annoying. It's like this book on tape tape Freddie like if you like you read your child Stories all the time. He wouldn't count that as that she read that now. He's a child. Okay they said well that's the thing she's got no choice. You have a choice. You could be reading these Barak but I guess choosing listen to these books. It's not really soon you read a book when you listen to a book. Yes now you did not read the book reading. A book is a whole different experience. The same exact pros kinda usually like waiting for the movie myself to read wikipedia speaking movies. Did you see the top controller. Yeah we talked about this when did yeah. Yea I think we did not with me. Yeah we probably did. Is this a new one. Though because the first thing that we thought the trailer we initially talked about months ago cruise. It's a a new one. He is now the flight leader. He's he's the teacher. Yeah but we. We talked about it when it came out. At first it might have been in the summer but a new one has emerged more. Yeah because I saw saw gunner again. What this movie did to this kid? When he was a gun was younger? Yeah he's locked into this. Watch that movie literally a thousand in times thousand times in surround sound and you remember the old laser discs. It came out sure. And this is like one of the one of the first movies on LASERDISC and I had a laser disc player in a surround. Sound dark room that you could click it and he would sit in there. I mean Literally Watch a thousand times and just fell in love with the whole Musso. He's fired up. I either this or Star Wars. Well this is one of them stays friends friends get dressed the star wars when they go see the Star Wars. Come out now if this next top gun is not a good more. Is he going to like just because he's such a fan. He's GonNa pretend that he liked it or is he going to be critical of it. If it's not I mean he is basically retweeting. Everything to Tom Cruise is putting out there so right now I just. He thinks it's going to live up to the high expectations that he has. He remembers it from when he was a kid. Tom Cruise Stella scientologist assuming so yeah. I don't really care. Does it bother you. That he's a weird one. Yeah for me. Yeah the scientology things a weird one flying DC ten. Yeah if you really if you really look into that whole deal. That's a strange one. Compared to other religions Russian who has time to look into the real deal because then you I know you anti religion and everything else but but don't worry about it you know. Some of us believe Jesus birth things. I've got no. Well we're talking scientology's a little bit of a different. It's L L Ron Hubbard row basically LIA fiction novel. And then they became their Bible is odd thing and then when people trying to leave the religion they go after him. Let me go after they go after them. How do they go after they go after them like they you try to ruin their lives? Go to beat him up. Yeah just Google it. There's laws Lee remmy who was in scientology and then they were going going after i. It's interesting I'm sorry I don't Care Halton and they go after you thing. Look come on. I know you don't care it's interesting scientology. Scientology to me is an interesting thing and how celebrities are into it and then they built that big church out there in California that's awesome. There's there's some great documentaries documented on it if you watch it I bet you into it. Maybe would be an not into science John Travolta scientologist I think so. Yeah I think he is all right well. He wears bright links. That's all I can take the same watch. Okay Nice Guy Anytime medicine. Aren't they anytime medicine Eddie to. I'm not sure about all right. I'm definitely definitely not anti medicine thing so I can't be a scientologist. No you can't if you've ever felt scientologists you'd be for medicine. Yeah I don't know it's something. There's Servino the aliens came over in the DC tends from whatever galaxy something new. That's their Bible. Yeah it is. It's like right up your right up your alley. I do like science fiction. Yeah all right. It is boomer and Geo on the fan and CBS sports. Now were shot later. We saw ah I know is already somebody outside cloaked ready. It's the morning show with boomer. esiason Gregg Giannotti boomer and Geo Tomorrow Tomorrow yes tomorrow three games tomorrow on the NFL network and all three games means something one of the team exactly right so the Texans and the buccaneers the first one and the buccaneers are devastated. A wide receiver. Because both Mike Evans and Chris Godman are not going to play in this game. That's unbelievable so you're GonNa see Rashad Perryman in in a bunch of guys you never heard of running around for Jameis Winston so I would think that the interceptions that you normally see from James might double in this game. Because he's he's working with guys. Those are normally work with James Back to back four hundred fifty yard games. Yeah now you may you know. Four hundred and fifty yards and six picks is probably something that I yeah well. That's the other thing. What what do you do with them? I mean if you're Tampa you'll have to resign. He's in the fifth year of his rookie deal. So in other words this was a prove at year for him with a new coach. Bruce Arians well. Here's a problem. There are seven and seven right. So they're not gonNA have a high draft choice. They're not going to be up in the top five top ten of the draft rafts. So to me you know if you had an opportunity to grab a quarterback in the future I might do it but they're not gonna be in a position to do that so I would not give him one of these astronomical deals but I'd I'd give him one of the deals like Andy Dalton got a few years ago you know where it wasn't a long term commitment but it was something that you know made sense and there was is incentive based where he could make a lot of money if he played well. But I don't think you can get rid of them and I also think that even though he's still throwing picks you another year with Bruce Arians and Byron left which the wide receivers I bring him back. How about this the most pass yards in a two game span? Okay since nine thousand nine hundred sixty since nineteen sixty that's the beginning of expansion in the AFL Phil Simms threw for nine hundred Jordan. Forty five yards October. Six thousand nine hundred eighty five to October thirteen. Those two games one of those games I think it was against us. The bengals he five hundred thirteen yards now and freaking lost. You lost generally happens right some of these. The the highest yard totals for quarterbacks usually happened in losses. Because they're playing from behind. I want okay. Sorry thrown for four ninety and a game in one and threw for five twenty three in a game in one side. Okay never mind back off okay. Tom Brady nine hundred. I'm forty yards back in September twelfth and September. Eighteenth Billy Volokh Tennessee. Remember him yes of course nine hundred and eighteen yards and then and of course there's Jameis Winston who just did it December eighth and December fifteenth nine hundred and fourteen yards. Yeah that's that's so like what do you do right now. I think you bring them back on a on a deal that isn't going to saddle the organization and prohibit them from going out and filling other needs that they clearly need. I mean there's they might have a winning season seven seven right now right. I don't think you can just cast them aside. Here's one other one that my man Wayne Fiddle men sent me. That is really truly amazing. And it's about Lamar Jackson Gay. There have been six hundred and forty nine individual one thousand yard rush seasons. Okay there have been one hundred twenty four individual thirty pass touchdowns seasons. Lamar Jackson is the first player in. NFL history. That has both of those in the same season. Wow Mvp right there without question. I have a vote for it and I take it seriously. Look at everything and you kind of measure a lot of different things but vote is a former. MVP vote via the media. It's it's kind of both okay so I&
