But yeah, they're going to do everything they can would they would because baseball has the.

"If you want to grow your brand, you've got a pitch and the way that you continue to pitch is to pitch a level pitch and he knows that. The Yankees are on paper the best team in the American league in yet, Carl. That Tampa Bay rays who just keep on beating him when they play, they went forty two last night and a game in which Garrett Cole started for the Yankees what he's seeing in this rivalry and you throw the Oakland athletics into that makes as well because it's pretty clear they're gonNA make the postseason. Reading a Promo last night during during our game the giants at angels game and the Promo of course is written the day before or the day of, and it was promoting the Yankees game coming up and how the Yankees have. The best record in baseball had just lost the race and I checked the next to hang on a second and they were. They had the same record, the twins did and the as did. So I was like, oh They got it. Right. Then I kept scrolling down hold on. Dodgers better. So it wasn't fact anymore, but it was not. Not, because the other teams were where they were it was the rays had beaten him and it's five six now and you know the the idea that these Yankees on paper or the same Yankees that could be on the field in a month. When you bring back DJ limit you and Aaron Judge Carlos Stanton that's different. There's no question about it and any team faces them when they're full-strength are dealing with a hell of a lot different animal than what the raise dealt with last night. But your point is valid Garrett Cole was on the mound. You know when you think about baseball teams now there are not a lot of them that go into a game with the pitching the way it is now and the bullpens that most of them have and they say to themselves, we likely will win tonight because he's on the mount. There's just not a lot of thought about that with these other great teams or good deeds. The rays have glass now and they have snow and when morning comes back. We probably should win because our pitchers slightly better but Cole is well, we're GONNA win 'cause Garrett cold on mount. While they didn't and it was the rays beating five out of six, and that's you know that's the important part of that game it's not lemay. and. Judge Stanton's absence. It's that they. Believe now that even a game if we have to face in the postseason Garrett, Cole starts, we've had success and by the way, Rosso comes up against that Britain and he gets the big hit in the game. So. The same way. The Red Sox had nightmares with Marian Rivera. The the nightmares to some extent from the raise. You know even last night Cole. Britain. Chapman. Wasn't there but it was Britain and Kevin cash decided to bring in a pinch hitter and it worked There's now going to be before game one of a series. The conversation isn't God. It's coal. It's were we beat Gary Cole- that's really important. Now. They're not afraid and I think that familiarity and you'd be made A. I think in comparison. Rivera. Red Sox because Ramar reverted the rest of the baseball world for his entire career was his unhittable force and for the Red Sox it was somebody that they you know I wanna say they beat all the time but they were had some level of competence the way the Yankees, Treaty Pedro Martinez de Great Pedro was the Yankees had some level of competence nets with the rays have now against the Yankees all right Carl. Thanks for doing this always great to talk with you. You curious, pence buster. Bleacher tweets. All Ready Buster bleacher tweets for Thursday d I up Got Stone at Scott under erm sorry underscore watching. So I need to blow up the text, I can't look at your email buster. Are there any rules regarding crowd noise in rescheduled games played in the other teams park the nats bent over backwards to make the Jays feel at home. But in every other such game I've seen the quote unquote crowd is cheering for the quote unquote visitors Yeah Scott I I didn't notice that the way you did I'm GonNa ask him questions in that their roles. My guess is there are absolutely no rules because let's face it baseball's been overwhelmed. By the day to day events I suspect this is one of those that was left behind. House kind of wondering that doesn't seem like there are any out there. PK Steinberg writes in have you talked to any players about watching the game from the stands the fans I view? Do they kind of like it? Now I kinda don't I remember listening to Max Scherzer on zoom call with reporters when he was talking about, you know this was early on the season and he was talking about the rules about whether or not could be in the dugout. Him is like, yeah I'm going to do everything. They can to find a way to be in the Dugout Bell as we've gone along and you've had outbreaks in various teams in some rules have changed the players been put into the stands. And I generally speaking think that they would would what much rather be in the dugout last one for today, trevor at t l Dunning writes in Hey, buster with so many seven inning games will some hitting stats such as the home run leader be determined per plate appearance versus total count..

"There'd be none if we insisted on trying to do, we would be fired. I know that a lot of times like major league. Baseball is viewed as being over fishes, for example, the use of the the first responder caps after nine eleven for mets games. But in this case I don't blame them. What do you think? Yeah I look. We interviewed Trevor Bauer I've talked to before he was on our telecast a few years ago, and it was one of the one of the most interesting conversations that we had and I think in a lot of ways for us it lead to more and more in game interviews that players he is. He's thoughtful. He's intelligent He will challenge people, and in the case the Free Joe Kelley cleats Look I. Think. He he's smart enough to know and even if you saw his post on twitter that was going to lead to a reaction for Major League Baseball, he knew that I think there's a little bit of trolling going on here with Major League Baseball I. Think in this time, the lines between free speech at First Amendment are blurred to the degree that you feel obligated sometimes if you're that type of person to push those. There was no way that those we're going to be allowed and perhaps it was the one cleared said free. Joe Kelly. I'm not certain that a party faced. Joe. Kelley would lead to the same reaction for Major League baseball if you put to cody faces on. One on each clip but three Joe Kelly is a direct. You know as you said, a direct sort of charge two major league baseball like enough's enough and again, a lot of times when you say things like that or you take aside, you're obviously. Alienating yourself from the other side, which in this case, it's easy to three Joe Kelley because he did something to the Astros and while the majority of people hate the Astros. So I'M GONNA get on this side of this and I know majorities GonNa Follow me because Joe Kelley was you know in my opinion? He was in the right to do what he did throw at the Astros and they deserve it. So you know you have the support, the idea that social media, which is An area that Trevor Bauer leaves in and does really well knows how to rally the people behind him the reaction from social media to me was obvious like they're of course, they're gonNA love this they're going to they're going to support it but I'm not certain that they were genuine in their or Trevor Bauer I i. don't I don't kill badly. For, Trevor Power in the sense that he was not allowed to wear cleats in, he can certainly sell them and he can donate money to charity and serve a purpose that I think he wanted to serve but that was that was that was that was an obvious long. Let's put this fall not and actually baseball going to being swipe at it and they did. And you know what all of it Seems to obscure the fact that right now he might be the best pitcher in baseball and he's a free-agent this fall. When I did that radio and Kansas City today they asked if Trevor's reputation is sometimes being difficult might cost him free agency and the comparison I made and it's not apples to apples. But you remember after Manny Machado became a free agent news a lottery bathe in the industry about how much should you get and some people were concerned about comments that manmade and? This guy play hard all the time, but the San Diego padres stepped up and made a big offer. I think that's exactly what's going to happen with Trevor I think they're going to be some teams. They're gonNA shy away from the social media stuff and said, you know what we're not going to be but somebody's GonNa give him an. Absolute ton of money. Look What the there's. There's things about Trevor Bauer that you really really respected like and his his desire to become a better pitcher. And then actually going out and doing it is certainly one of those things that is admirable and respectable eight works his ass off and and he shows people that he's working. It's about off and his translated into him becoming. A very, very effective pitcher. Then the beautiful part about trevor in another way as. He, he's going to dictate the outcome of this negotiation. I you know I I don't know if Trevor Bauer wants a term deal or he wants. earned. This I. Want a massive one year deal. Let's let me go earn and again the next year I don't know but I do know that because of his personality and his opinions he at least allows you to think differently like, well, how is he gonNA play this on the pitching side. Absolutely. And and the Machado thing is is really a good comparison because we were watching again last night with a walk off grand. Slam for Machado the catchy made the other day running out you know a hundred feet to right field. You're reminded when Manny Machado isn't doing those things. Off the field or making comments just how damn good a baseball player he is and bowers doing the same thing. On the same day that I can tweet about Joe Kelly's cleats the best thing I can do for the Trevor Bauer ran is to pitch a game like I pitched a seven inning complete game. That's the best thing. He can do the other stuff to me. You know they're the sprinkles you put on an ice cream there the. Those, the get me get me to the to the bones here. Get me to the foundation, get me to the roots and right now at the route, this guy can flat out pitch and that's that's the most important thing..

"Trail. With Carl Rabbit. All Right Carl. Let's start with something fun. Before we talk about what Thom Brennaman said yesterday let's talk about Casey mayes making his major league debut for Detroit Tigers. I've always thought there's nothing more exciting nothing more enjoyable than watching an uber talented young pitcher early in his career and to see the unveiling of the stuff and I know he had a mixed bag in terms of his overall pitching line, but you could see. That I strike with that crazy change through for the strikeout. CHANGEUP splitter fastball hair like Eric. Cole we did it tigers game last week and spoke to Ron Gardenhire and I'll be honest. There was a there was a feeling of almost I don't WanNa say defeated but he was really down and he was down for a lawn two reasons but probably most important was you know his age and Covid nineteen and how none of this is easy or fun but we talked about the idea that you have scuba and Mayes down there and it felt like he was really at the whim of the general manager Al Avalon and he wasn't sharing at all whether mon is. GonNa come up and this this of course comes on the heels of the Nova injury and you're like, well, why wouldn't you do that and he didn't you know he was deflected he didn't have a great answer he he may have already known this was the decision, but this is probably forty eight hours before they did it the service time question wasn't on the docket anymore. So having Seen Jane Pitch at Florida and Mayes Auburn and college world series and all those things and seeing what he had done in the minor leagues you're like I don't understand what what this big decision is and there were some calms to Justin for lander when Jim Leyland was there and Dave. Dombrowski back and Oh six, and then they make that call and this isn't comparing mice avert lander but you have a young guy and we live in an era now and which this is a young man's game. Why aren't why isn't this obvious? Of course we're bringing up Casey Mayes and yes. When they did, he showed like many other youngsters that committed the game who have guber talent as you described it he belongs and he pitched like he belonged last night and in a shortened season when you're still kinda sniffing around like why wouldn't you do that? So yeah, for Tigers fans a peek into the future really encouraging. He was great and I think he'll be great and again. To somebody that comes out of an SEC school like you do it's another tip of the cap to the quality of baseball in that conference. I loved you framing that Carlin mentioning Burland because you're talking I'm thinking you know what? It's like Deja Vu all over again you know the Tigers in the early two thousands were the worst team in baseball. They were horrific and Justin burland arrived and think about all the tigers accomplish after he arrived in the last couple of years the Tigers Been Godawful and now Casey Mayes has arrived and if you told me that in. Ten twelve years that Like burland or he would be the leader of the staff and taking them into the postseason that wouldn't be shocked me based on what we've seen so far. No and again, I mean I don't WanNa I. Don't WanNa Dismiss. Conferences but mayes has pitched pass level. We've seen them in college world series, and he was the leader on those Auburn teams. You Know Lander became the leader. The Tigers have a leadership void on the field Y- depleted couple of years you need a leader he is that and there was a there was also an I imagine you saw it on social media. There was a really neat video that was put out by the Mayes family all of whom were. You know wishing him support. There was a there was a twitter I imagined it was on other social media platforms. About, how difficult you know erode? It's been for him in the sense that this is a lot of pain in the ass work you put in you deserve it. His brother talked I think I think it was his wife who talked his laws you talk to his parents who talk you just got the sense. The foundation was real solid and the moment wasn't too big for him. Last night when you when you watched and that was that was really encourage. That's something you always look for like there was no deer in headlights look from. Casey, minds in his stuff place there's no question. You heard what Thom Brennaman said, Carl. What did you think? It was obviously a terrible insensitive regrettable and Thom Brennaman and I are literally the same age and been doing this for about the same length of time and I'm sure he knows it Sure. He's I've seen the the apologies, etc but we live rightfully. So and a zero tolerance policy era and when you say something like you said as he said when I when I took my headsets off I, I don't not sure I'm GonNa ever. Put these that's-that's on again You know you you you can't. You can't be too careful and the things you say for broadcasters that are aspiring to get it in this industry you have to assume that every microphone is always on and if you say something like that, you're you're bound to be caught and you know, I'm sure the red sox burner react swiftly major league. Baseball has indicated a now for years that they have no tolerance for comments like that and. Again I feel I feel badly that a career like that is going to end the way it's GonNa end and you know there's not much else to say other than. The zero tolerance and you just you just know that those things those comments those thoughts are Are are things that need to be avoided? They're not allowed. Yeah and and look you make a great point. We've all been in situations where we want to say something and we've got a microphone on and I told the story went did radio and Kansas City today about how doing sportscenter. Anchors during the commercial break. We'll ask you a question about a sensitive issue and you'll say call you after the show but that's a separate thing. You know what? What's behind the comment that he made in the comfort level? I'm sure that Major League Baseball. The reds will be able to get audio of leading up to whatever was said in that conversation. And I would be asking questions about okay. Is this the first time I've been had there been similar comments because the free and loose nature of it in what he says made me cringe Carl. I mean, it was. You know it fell in line with. Conversation was that's that's interesting todd of what led up to it because what immediately followed it was I believe like a read of a Promo So it it just felt like it was it was a conversation that had a level of familiarity with whoever he was talking to You know and a lot of times you WanNa pull back the curtain on on. Our business you can during a commercial communicate with the producer who's oftentimes talking in your ear, and obviously the public can't hear that You can speak to the other people on the telecast and nobody can nobody out there can hear it because you're pressing a talk back button that allows you a line of communication with the people who are on the broadcast But again, this is not this is not the first case where when you're not speaking to the public, you're not broadcasting that you have to recognize just because I'm not broadcasting hardly means that there aren't other people listening I. For instance, you know when we do our zoom call sir. K. B O calls. There's a number of people who can log into that. backchannel broadcast and observe it and watch it and listen to it and and just those eyes and ears that are on you that you're not even aware us. You. Know for for Tom Brennan and everyone else. It's a cautionary tale regardless of you know your own personal feelings you've got to put those whatever they may be in a in a drawer and leaves them. There anytime. You have a headset on or near a headset. So again, I, think he I think he's aware of what the outcome of this is going to be. It's. Really. It's really unfortunate but brought on brought on by the individual looking for yesterday Cincinnati reds started Trevor Bauer, Gift Pass News told by Major League baseball he could be subject to discipline and removal from a game. If he wears the custom-made cleats, he had manufactured that say Free Joe Kellyanne one shoe and Abby pouty face. Kelly. Of this suspended dodger pitcher on the other Kelly courses band, for games. E appealed it was cut down to five and I thought about this because of course, it was a lot of support for trevor on social media in a like poor Trevor Bauer. He's getting picked on here but I thought about this and and I came down to this I don't know a line of business in industry where you could wear a piece of clothing with a message on it. That would question that business and the at your place of work it wouldn't exist for example, tim cartoon never does anything wrong? Imagine a were suspended by ESPN in you and I in support of Tim wanted to go on air you know free Tim Kirch in. There's no chance that we would be lead on air..

NBA trade deadline: Winners, losers and teams in between
"Flurry of trades in the NBA a blockbuster in baseball mortar common colds to memorialize Kobe Bryant and highly visible way joined by ESPN's Howard Bryant good morning hours good morning Scott how are you I'm fine thanks is awesome aggressive deals in the NBA trade at the trade deadline who do you rack up as the winners and losers well and I'm not sure about the winners and losers of the trade deadline but certainly the winners and losers right now of the first half of the season you've got a look at the Lakers in the west and and the Milwaukee Bucks I think they are head and shoulders above everybody else how could you hold on for a moment our you know head yes government for you almost got me for a second there's got yeah Milwaukee is terrific and and they're great they're holding on the crushed Philadelphia the other night I thought coming into the season it was gonna be Philadelphia Milwaukee Los Angeles and Los Angeles Lakers and the clippers but I'm not too sure about the other two yet but we've got a long way to go I think trade deadline wise I think Miami Heat got much much better they got on great good dollar they made a very good deal with Memphis I think that Philadelphia tried to shore up of making a deal with with the warriors and de Angelo Russell going to Minnesota who knows what that's gonna do maybe there's a late run there but the bottom line is coming forward right now I still think that you've got two teams in this league disappointed the Boston Celtics didn't do anything but I think it's the box and the Lakers right now an official memorial for Kobe Bryant's been set for February twenty fourth they've been calls to make his image a permanent part of the game you even rent a Poland that did I did I read a little Twitter poll this morning which was soundly rejected to replace Kobe Bryant is Jerry west to is the logo of the NBA with cut him a cell away from the silhouette of your request yes absolutely and it would have been fitting in some ways because Jerry west was the the man behind making sure Kobe Bryant ended up with the Lakers making that draft day trade with the Charlotte Hornets and I I understand add on one on one level the need or they want to want to memorialize Kobe I also understand that the NBA has been around since nineteen forty seven and maybe it's time to create a new logo Jerry west has been there fifty years since nineteen sixty nine however I do think that if you're going to think about and I'm a new logo or and a modern logo it's probably got to be Michael Jordan right or but I got an arm and a leg yeah but I also understand the desire right now for people to feel that something should be done for Kobe Bryant after after all that happened Boston Red Sox LA Dodgers Minnesota Twins switching sports agreed to a three team trade Tuesday that's been perhaps delay it has been delayed because of some medical records Mookie Betts has what they call a generational player MVP Golden Gloves traded to the Dodgers are the red Sox making the worst roster decision since they sold Babe Ruth's contract well if you red Sox fans are very happy about it especially because it's a generational player Mookie Betts is a beloved player two years ago he wins the M. B. P. and they won the World Series you're looking at a guy that fans just adore and it's a very cynical move in some ways but it also may very well be a huge business deal for them because number one we know that super star players now at this level after Manny Machado deal after the Bryce Harper deal your it in and now the the Gerrit Cole deal you're looking at three hundred and fifty four hundred million dollars to sign a player and if Mookie Betts didn't want to play with the red Sox will find out over the next several weeks and months if that was the case then of course they had to move them but on the other hand if that's not the case the red Sox are a super power they can sign whoever they want they've got money it's looking like a cynical deal we will see I'm good at and by the way I got as you know your cubs aren't far behind because you've got a guy like Chris Brian who's another cornerstone player and what does that mean for the cubs keep these players and the fans love him yeah thank you very much ESPN's Howard Bryant thanks so much no my pleasure

Astros Hire James Click as General Manager
"There but let's get back into the sports radio six ten best of and right now we go back to Clint starter in German Branham as they discuss the biggest news of the last twenty four hours in Houston sports and that of course being the Astros finally hiring their next general manager it'll be the chain's click replacing Jeff window winstar in Germany random discussed the mountain he's eaten malam James quick will have to climb over come to get the **** back to the World Series mainly replacing the endings of the dominance of Gerrit Cole let's hear that conversation right now clinch Turner Jeremy Branham of the Astros have a new general manager James click brought over from the Tampa Bay rays and we're excited about Ripon dump about it but there are some things that James collects gonna have to address in address immediately both on the field and off the fills up off the field first but this is something that you you look at when it will be put together their investigation the Astros that they had a culture that wasn't really thought of in the best light by Major League Baseball they had issues with the cheating scandal they had issues with Brandon top men yelling across the clubhouse to certain female reporters I think first and foremost off the field for James click it might be an issue that he has to pay attention to right away yeah well there's no I think to it I mean when when the when Manfred the Major League Baseball commissioner does a an investigation into your organization a very thorough investigation you're going to your organization which he suspends the head good the manager and the general and we need we need a jar every time you say head coach is that a man of god all your your no no no no no no no we we broke up well I'll put it in there I'll put in there we have a little party in the years but I'll be damned JB's give me but but not you there's no there's no if ands or buts about it what that that I think you're great would you say problematic in what was the other term I forget the word there was a big war that was over my pay grade I want to say insulin but that what that does it does it right when I was I worry that look good here I'll be damned look bad god made death that's right right but but but that that the culture of the front office was problematic and there was some there was some negative aspects to that culture and and that was rob Manfred conclusion at the end of a at at the end of it and it's a very thorough investigation so why you would on a CD or go out I don't like is that big of a deal is twenty twenty there's no it was a big deal I mean it it's it's in papers in the report it was a big deal and so first and foremost click click sprouting Mrs going there and clean that up and get that right what he what what click what James click cannot afford to do is what we believe that loan and huge did at the end of their tenure with the Astros which was overlooked things and maybe not address things thoroughly and make sure things were going to certain direction make sure things work have James click as a going to their front office and has to sit down and and and literally make sure that everybody understands that that they're going to do things a little bit different now I would imagine that cranes already already started that ball rolling probably per at a pretty significant level but but James quick has to first and foremost get in there and make sure that the staff that he's taking over which is is Ludo staff that he's that he's taken over has to be has to have the right culture yeah he has to write that ship whatever was wrong nip it in the bud and move forward one of the things that that I admired from Tampa bay's front office and I read the book called the extra two percent which basically told the story of the Tampa Bay rays front office kind of like Moneyball told the story of the Oakland he's kind of like astral ball told the story of the Houston Astros in one of the things that was big in Tampa was that the the book was titled the extra percent the whole idea was we have to be to percent better than everybody else in every single aspect and that would include the culture and they would have they would have ping pong tournaments in the offices in Tampa Bay they would have video game tournaments in the offices of Tampa Bay I'm intrigued to James click brings that style here as well one of the things he said Congress able over our cameras in the break well we'll see about that they have a shuffle board over there to have been known to I will spin on the shuffle not so bad and the shuffle board a spin the self aware you well spin it around your stone in action and three point or but but that's something that I I I think was really cool in Tampa Bay on tree deceive James click brings that here one of the things you said the press conference was we want to create an atmosphere and environment that is employee first to make sure our employees have the best best chances of succeeding at there's no reason for me to believe that it's not going to bring that James click is going to bring that over from Tampa to the Houston Astros in jail either gonna take you step for this I really believe that I know this is hard to believe but I'm not a big reader and so I have not read the book that you're on I have to read it again actually I have not read the book that you're that you're referring to but but I I gotta believe also uses it if there's a book written about the the Tampa Bay rays culture essentially and the Astros just tired James quick who's been there literally for thirteen years and has has built his resume within that organization I gotta believe that when he comes when he gets to the Astros front office literally when he when his feet are on the ground and he's starting to address issues cultural be at the top of that list and creating a similar culture to what he had in Tampa Bay will be how he goes about it and in that process he will be riding the wrongs that were identified in the commissioners investigation of the Astros as it relates to the front office and the culture of their front office so I I think that that is a it's a it's an important first step I think for a for the GM of the Astros at this point and it's just the beginning of of the the climb that he's up against in this twenty twenty season could JB discussing the the steep mountain that James click has to climb as a first year general manager of the Houston Astros fixing the culture

Thanks thanks so much as always moving onto athletes making far less than Garrett Cole yesterday in Washington Marc Emmers the head of the NCAA. Meeting with Senators Editors Mitt Romney of Utah and Chris Murphy of Connecticut Romney and Murphy have been leading the charge on Capitol Hill to make it possible for college athletes to benefit financially nationally from the use of their name. Image like this there are. Efforts aligning with several initiatives on the state level around the country. The question now seems to be not whether either but the extent to which the NCAA will rewrite its rulebook and for more we welcome our own. Dan Murphy who's in. DC having having covered the so-called name image and likeness summit. Dan What exactly was on the agenda. This was a first meeting with the group of High Profile Senators who've decided they're going to try to jump into this conversation as is federal legislation. Looks more and more likely senators Romney and Murphy of both been critical of the NC CW in the past and this was their initial sort of olive branch to reach out and give Mark Martin opportunity to plead his case as far as being there. He's really reaching out and saying thing we don't want state by state laws. That's not tenable for the future of the NCWA. He was there to try to try to get some friendly. NCWA legislation started as they begin these conversations of what it might look like still aways down the road before anything is formalized in a proposal. Dan What is it like. It must be disorienting to hear. Mark Amer Moore who for so long like his organization resisted any intrusions from the political world. Now saying at least for our rhetorical consumption. We need your help. You guys guys got come up with a framework because what's going on now and where this seems to be heading will be dangerous for the college. The collegiate model that we're trying to preserve. Yeah it's definitely you know. He was asked yesterday afternoon at a separate panel if this was a last resort going to Congress for him and he wouldn't quite go that far but it is an about face from what the NCW has has done for a long time. They've wanted to make their own rules but they realized that this point that they need help. They need national intervention in order to to still have some control. What they're trying to do now is make sure that whatever happens? Whatever rule gets made they still have a say in the process and they're able to regulate the future of whatever? This market market might look like Dan. You may remember a few weeks ago. We had Mitt Romney on the show talking about this issue generated. Some buzz with this comment but look what you have is a couple athletes on campus driving around in Ferraris while everybody else is basically having a hard time making ends meet and then Mitt Romney is saying that athletes should be compensated. But you know we've got to figure out a framework that's going to work prevent as he said the Ferraris whereas Mitt Romney's thinking on the issue. Now Yeah I think that comment left a lot of people who have been fighting this fight for a long time scratching their heads after Romney said he was coming after the. NCW that that's much more of a radical rhetoric. You'd expect to hear from Mark Emmett or other people working with the NC Double A.. So I think in talking to Romney Staff. It sounds like he is still very wide open to what this answer might look like he knows as does everyone else in that room at the NC Double A.. Needs to change in some way but I think Romney may be the hardest depend down right right now on on how far he wants to push the AA. There are certain certainly people on Capitol Hill who are being much more aggressive about trying to force the NC Double A.. To change and do more or for Athletes Dan Murphy reporting from Washington on the so-called name image likeness summit. We keep hearing the walls tumbling down. We shall see Dan.

Come to mind Saturday in Atlanta on. ABC The celebration bowl the championship of hugh football pitting the champion the eastern Athletic Conference Carolina Ain t against the champion of the southwestern athletic conference all corn state more. We welcome John on Thomas Grade Junior. He's the Executive Director of the Celebration Bowl John when the SEC integrated half a century ago the conventional wisdom was that football at the HCC US would wither away. The talent wouldn't go to those schools anymore. They go to the big schools. That hasn't entirely Happened how would you assess the state of the game now at HCC US on the rise. We've seen a resurgence resurgence in interest in historically black causing university football programs Both from athletes from the fans from companies that that are looking to connect with consumers. And so the celebration Bo. We've we believe has been a big part of creating that researches there was the heritage bowl roll back in the one thousand nine hundred ninety s which attempted to do the same thing create a championship for historically black colleges and universities. But it couldn't guarantee the champions of the two preeminent conferences would end up meeting each other. The game went away twenty years ago. This is the fifth season for the celebration bowl. How has the game itself help? Help raise exposure not only for football at HCC used but for the schools themselves well. It's a championship game. And when you open the college let Football Bowl season with the championship game of this caliber. The champions from each of the conferences and each year these games have gone down to the wire wire. The average point spread on the wind has been five points with North Carolina. Ant squeaking by all state last year about two points and then by two points the year before Against grambling State University. So this this is this the kind of of football ball and kind of presentation of the sport you WanNa see very competitive and the energy around it from our fans has just been fantastic. John we were talking about this just the other day on. The radio is well you were talking about. How applications for enrollment at some of the schools in these conferences has been skyrocketing working in the last few years? How do you connect that? If you can to the celebration bill. Well this this year will mark on an tease fourth appearance. Silence out of five so you can almost say they have a dynasty taking place In in this in this space. But they've seen their applications this year alone own they receive over thirty thousand applications.

"Welcomed outside the lines. I'm Jeremy SCHAAP COMING UP Gary Cole- Don's The pinstripes at his ceremonial introduction. Is Yankee mega signing says about the state of baseball but I it is our big story. The pro bowl rosters have been announced the big winners the Ravens with twelve selections which makes sense since Baltimore has has league's best record at twelve and to leading the way the ravens remarkable second year quarterback Lamar Jackson the favored the MVP award with two games to play Jackson Jackson. One of the six quarterbacks selected for the roster's along with the Shawn Watson Patrick Mahomes in the AFC and Russell Wilson Aaron Rodgers and drew brees in the NFC. Four of those six quarterbacks African American. That's never happened before for the pro bowl and it is emblematic of what. We've been calling the year of the black black quarterback for more we. Welcome Jason We tear. NFL writer at the UNDEFEATED DOT com. We've been writing about this story. Line all season season. Jason Your reaction to those pro bowl rosters being announced wait. Oh Jeremy You and I've talked about this before. We knew that this was going to be an incredible credible year for African American quarterbacks. And what we're seeing is the result. The combination of all the effort throughout the season the training camp the preseason and now you have this group that is representing the AFC everyone of the quarterback slots. And I really wasn't surprised. I'll be honestly Jeremy. I would have been surprised. If that wasn't the breakdown would have been more gratified to see Dak Prescott. Many you're saying he's the biggest snub of all the pro bowl players who were not all the players who were not named to the rosters. I should say Jerry. I think there's definitely arguments if you may the Dak Prescott should be on this team. Now people look at Aaron Rodgers and and Raja's largest team has a much better record. But when you look at the advanced metrics when you look at things yards granted Aaron Rodgers having a great year very few interceptions release awesome touchdown passes but you can make a very strong credible argument. I think TAB Dak Prescott on this team and when you're talking about the year of the black quarterback when you're talking about this culmination as you put it of so many different factors. It's it's not coincidence. It's part of a trend but where does it all start. How did we get to this point now in twenty nineteen when we were a tier ten years ago? Forty years after the first black quarterbacks in the NFL Jimmy. I think is very interesting. A lot of people point to the Michael Vick draft in two thousand one and say that when Michael Vick was taken number one overall overall first African American to be taken that spot that that was the beating but other people point to nine hundred ninety nine when three African American quarterbacks were taken in the first round Donovan mcnabb Nab Akili Smith and data culpepper. And say hey look that really signal that the League was shifting. Its thinking in terms of what these guys could do ultimately four four franchise. So there's that debate but a lot of people will tell you one thousand nine hundred nine is really are jumping off point. What does this news the four out of six six and the arguments whether Prescott should be on the roster? And I'd say about changing perceptions about black quarterbacks perceptions that after all for so a long held back black quarterbacks Yeah Jeremy and that's the thing is it's the perception it's what do we think of these players as the NFL commemorates memories just one hundred season. It's not a coincidence that that when you have a roster loaded with guys who are African American quarterbacks it's really about showing that okay the League now believes it's not just that these guys have physical tools but they have the leadership they have the heart. They have the ability to lead franchises. This is and I think that's such a significant thing. We've had black quarterbacks for many years but we're talking about is guys who are stars who are going to get these hundred two hundred million dollar contracts contracts and in the case of Patrick Mahomes and can be franchise players that organizations build around so we talk about perception. The perception now is look. We'd better go get one of these guys can do these things because they can lead us to great things.

Who is twenty nine is coming off his best season? Twenty wins and a League leading two point five Oh average for the AL champion Houston Astros cold calls this move to the Yankees a dream fulfilled. There's a process here that Brian spoke to and that he just alluded to a couple of minutes ago. Go about trying to bring the best people at each individual position to surround everybody with the best opportunity to succeed. I think they've demonstrated that certainly only through Bryant's tenure over the last two decades so it instills a lot of confidence as a player when you hear those things and it doesn't unhurt to play for your favorite team. The Yankees haven't won a world series or so much as a pennant in ten years stuck on twenty seven world series title since two thousand nine forty five years after New York ushered in the era free agency signing of hall of fame starter. Catfish Hunter who would help them win. Two world series. They are again making a big bet on a strong right. Are we welcome terrance Moore. He is a national sports columnist for Forbes DOT COM and. I'm assuming you would shave your mustache for three hundred twenty four million dollars when you I think so Germany's a handsome mustache mustache. Thanks very much. Let's be honest what's going on here and I'm GONNA use a Christmas analogy here. You've you've heard of Ebony Scrooge of course right I Manuka Pool yes if compared me to them well. I'm not sure whether it's still the ghost of Christmas pass. We have the ghost of Yankees Pass. George Steinbrenner okay okay. He's haunting his two sons. Saying get it done. You mentioned not won the World Championship in ten years which is discussing the Yankees considering that the Yankees are the the most viable team of Major League Baseball at four point. Six billion dollars. Okay and get this. I mean you got a small market team by the Kansas City royals. They've won a world sources the Yankees. They had to get off of this money here and go for their what people calling their great white will endure cold. But isn't this exactly the kind of contract that Brian Brian Cashman who has been the GM for more than two decades. The kind of thing that for years he was shying away from because the evidence suggests that. There's no way you know history to suggest that this is a good investment. You might get a couple of good years. You might get something out of it. The way they did were see Sobat. The ten years go he won the world series right at the beginning of that big deal but this represents a shift in strategic thinking from cashman. Doesn't it an Randy Levine and ownership. Well I mean no doubt about it and it's not about spending the money part of it is about. Who Do you spend money on? Okay let's go back in time. They spent the money on a guy named Reggie Jackson. Yes and I think that turned out pretty well. So so it's all it's all about that. How you allocate one point six million dollars build a difference? This is a little bit different so I mean here's the thing two right turns I mean the Yankees. They're worth so much. They are are capable of spending this money but ultimately when they look at their balance sheet and a few years from now if Garrett Cole doesn't work out how are they going to approach. Things at that point to the Yankee does too with all these teams. I mean if you look at what the Angels Do did here with Rodion the random rather than I mean. There's a whole lot of money to spend four one guy playing third base or any position for that matter but they've got the highest paid player in baseball. Aw Saint Roster and Mike Trout and what if the angels done nothing wherever okay so again we get back to. What are you spending money on? And how are you're trying to fill out your roster eight hundred and fourteen million dollars for those three free agents last week. All clients have Scott bores and this is when we talk about baseball not being relevant in the national sports discussion people not paying attention to the world series the All Star game not being a cultural event anymore. So so how are we supposed to read. There's there's all this money in the game. Players are getting rich teams. Have the money to spend it but but it's not like baseball. We don't talk about it. Focus on the way we once did. What does that say about the game and the health of the game? And you've got this contradiction going on here Jeremy. Baseball attendance have dropped drop every year for the last twelve years. In spite of the fact this past year had all those home runs was supposedly brings people out to the ball games but this is very simple. What's going on here? The media rights fees okay. It's a national television contract. The regional contracts and low contracts. They're getting a bundle. These owners. Okay they got.
Yankees introduce ace Gerrit Cole
"Big big day day for for the the Yankees Yankees today's today's they they formally formally introduce introduce their their new new ace ace Gerrit Gerrit Cole Cole Cole Cole Yankee Yankee fan fan as as a a kid kid says says playing playing for for the the Yankees is a childhood dream come true I can remember as a little boy dreaming about being a Major League Baseball player specifically Yankee and like Brian said it's the right time in the right place to to take that step Yankee GM Brian Cashman says he did play hard to Gaddy wanted call anyone after and we were very transparent about our interest in this particular player Gerrit Cole a useful Yankee fan that grew up in and and finished off to put himself I think in the best position possible that when he wanted to with the ever chose to enter this time and place that he would be the best prepared he possibly could be for the young skater terms of cold last week at a nine year deal worth three hundred twenty four million dollars the richest contract ever given to a pitcher it includes a full no con clock no trade clause no deferred money and an opt out clause after the fifth

"Definitely note that All right dare coal signs with the Yankees I mean she if he threw a years worth of salary on the People's Pie he would lose a years worth of salary but it would be a lot of money based STAF garrick. Kohl's pitch count last season if you were to translate that to his new contract he's going to be making roughly ten thousand dollars. Pech catch when he pitches for the New York Yankees. Is that good like Jack. He pitches pitch for a half an the Yankees averaged five point eight two runs per game edging an absolute whippable. That's true with a ball. Field out of a ballpark. Garrett Cole has a career record of sixty six into when his team scores at least five runs at seems like a good combination nation. I mean okay. Obviously he's unbelievable. He's the best pitcher in baseball. But Nine Years Jack in twenty two thousand fifteen David price at at the time signed for the longest and richest for a pitcher at seven for two seventeen. This is two more years nine years and David price is nowhere near what used to be when he signed that contract before you when he was with the Tigers but otherwise one of the two but gear Garre call sign for a hundred and twenty eight million dollars more than David price like this. I'm not saying it's a bad contract. You we know how you sell out. That's what happened this same thing with your boy Bryce Harper. He's Gonna I mean he's not it's all different for a pitcher because you're big on the. They only play one every five days. I mean that that's a whole different act but oh why do you think it's different. I mean it's just like it when you put that in perspective perspective. I'm not saying it's a bad deal because of the nature of the business when you put it into perspective that they're getting paid to work once every five days and making that much money for it. It's crazy okay. But in fairness complex time there's only one player and one position who can singlehandedly win a game. Listen I totally get that. I'm not saying Rosberg won nationals. The world series. I mean wasn't how much how much was Garrett Cole. Licking his chops and that Strasbourg deal came out. Yeah he knew what he was getting at Strasbourg where to get that much to forty five. I think it was. I mean the dude won a world series. MVP like that raises the Price Tag. Get Joe Joe FLACCO. That happened to us. Fortunately there's no salary cap in them. I'll be so it doesn't matter how bad that deal is had the Yankees. He's in year six seven eight nine. It's just a matter of if you've got one or two that then the success I think I think people calling the Yankees World World Series Champion Not a ton did but I do see obviously people saying okay. That's a wrap for the league. I mean it's what now they're gonNA tation is. It's not that much better. It's it's Cold Severino Tanaka and Paxton. Yeah that's probably what it is in your only throwing three of those You GotTa Assume Severino stays healthy. I mean it's the best sunshine. There's no doubt but there bats the past two years because they're homerun hitters of just expired. Come playoff time so I think it's not like we're not watching them and I'll be like when the warriors got Katie. Everyone knew what was going to happen. This is not that situation but I was having this conversation tonight. What if what if the NBA be a for instance was like the Albay where there was no salary cap in no rules? What would people like Kawhi Leonard Lebron James be signing for? It's crazy crazy. Yeah Lebron should I mean everyone knows that she how much more money is in is in basketball than it is in baseball. How much more of a revenue share? There is wild wild to think about. I wonder if it would ruin the league though hundred percent yeah it would become way more of a of a local sports. Just like baseball is like if you're you're you you grew up in Baltimore Orioles. Were never good. That's why you never cared about baseball. I would talk smack when we were young kids about the phillies. But you didn't care because the royals were never good in eighteen. And they went to the world series somehow. Nah elsia hails. Yes but yeah I mean it's it's such along and long sport in terms of the game and the season if you your team is in good. It's very hard to keep pace with it whereas no way would be that especially if all these years are awful. Yeah there's only one bad team in the NBA. It's The New York Knicks. They're abysmal. What do you think about the whole higher? Jason Jason Kidd to luring Jaanus the not a real thing that's nixed. That's Knicks fans trolling themselves. I don't think that's little I next next like it is nicks like but it's that only came up because knicks fans. They liked to themselves knicks. Fans can talk as much trash about themself. South anyone can say teams right exactly so knicks fans. I mean I saw it goes far as we WANNA hire Jaanus as Middle Middle School math teacher like that. It's it's knicks fence. Show him so we will jaanus. That's besides the point. But we're not gonNA signed Jason Kidd. I hope we signed. I'm Becky Hammon. I mean why not at this point like show that we're forward thinking or show that were Mark Jackson like using the horrible coach. I mean whoever ever comes in it's just signing up for their inevitable death right you like this. The next coached the knicks higher isn't going to be the guy no proudly the next coach is bounded the same fate that David data fissile had and I saw the report that fizzle declined the sun's job. The Hawks Job and one other team doesn't because he took the Knicks on him Not a smart dude. Not a smart neither. Could he run an offense so it is where it is. I mean the Knicks. Hirschman offense with that. Yeah the Knicks Sir. It's sell the whole team. WE'VE RJ Barry Excess Game Tomorrow Night Against Boston. That is a big dive back into some and getting so caught up in the NFL. And I get it. It's towards the end of the season's playoff we got to throw out some NBA. Maybe on Sunday next week. Well you know. Monday's episode episode.

"More football man still in it? Still Breeden see them so you in on football you're out Game or what's today Wednesday. Not yet I mean this damn team man. These Philadelphia goes just keep bringing me back in All right before we go power rankings. Let's just do a Thursday night football preview. Its jets at Ravens Ravens. Win Is Lamar playing. He is I would imagine this. Be The at least watch Thursday night football game of the year if it was. Rg three verse. DARNOLD Yes it would be the I. I'm not gonNA I am not going and watch the ravens play Football Mara. The past few years Thursday buzzing kind of boring like they're they usually pit like to pretty bad teams this year. I feel it's been improved which speaking of bad teams. I have a question because obviously it wasn't pouring from me being that I was a fan but I was having this conversation with my grandfather grandfather yesterday and we were saying how how nobody on Monday night in America care to watch a single second of that game but like eagles and giants for the Eli aspect is that was it that miserable for you watch. I have watched on okay so yes like I was doing stuff I was watching. I didn't watch the first this quarter if you weren't doing stuff. Would you care to what I was doing stuff because I did not care okay. You would have made time to watch the Eli Manning. Storyline wasn't big enough. The Eagles like a little strange how they had all those like book of Eli and all these videos and graphics ready to go out of nowhere five days as they made all that Hanta. We'll stay right. So you're in agreement Ravens Win I think it'll be somewhat closer. That team point spread. Yeah I think it'll be probably within two touchdowns the jets are really going to struggle to score even though Levian will play. I think the ravens aren't going to really use the mark art. They WANNA save film for Ploughs Coming Up. Plus he has that little thigh-injury how are they going to be low scoring. It'll be boring. We'll just try and run out the clock when comfortably and onto next week. So let's go straight into the power. Rankings I've got twenty one. I've got twenty one. Nothing Ravens told you up. I mean I don't about at that. No I don't hate that that kind of your entire scriptures. Now it did I think the jets score pitching shutouts is hard but the jets are the jets even though they've won three or four so nothing like a good. NFL pitchers true Right number Oh we gotTa Talk Garrett Cole later I all right number one Baltimore Ravens. Eleven to one nine in a row. Best offense in the League Top Five Defense Great Coaching. You know how it goes number. Two San Francisco forty forty nine so that you're getting a little too used to that I. It actually is discussing because it's tough to kind of drop the Ravens after they continue your win week in and week out figured out number two is the niners. Absolutely mammoth win. They move back into leave for the NFC west. They made a statement while Ravens Line just moved another half-point point They made a statement win the by going into New Orleans. I had as the favourite to win the conference. Garoppolo balled out the defense. I did not you know. The defense didn't make plays in Garoppolo. Did so there are two saints right there at three. 'cause they're you know right in that game Number Four for the chiefs. The chiefs are number for as to win the chaser getting hot. The defense is playing while the one team that I think in challenge the Ravens for the AFC and then number five. The New England patriots are out of the power. Rankings that the Tennessee see Titan. Oh stop hottest team in the Ravens. Are The hottest team the best team in football. Yes they are right now. They're currently currently the Fifth Best Team Ryan Channels Authentic podcast. You're ruining our reputation for collects. The Ryan Tannehill is plain nine out of his freedom. I ran out and you know what I'm right in the hot hand ha still might not even make the play disagree. They're going to win the division so with that being said take it away and honestly if the Ravens are one we're going to have. Yeah the New Orleans Saints I. I don't care what the record says what games they've lost teen lose every week. It's not as McFarland. Says Games aims are lost in this league one. I don't really know what he meant by that. Statistically impossible yeah but I'm pretty sure like if one liver is vulgar is next level but anyway I just think that the best team all based off of what now what now. What right now? Because they just lost to the niners and the Ravens beat the niners over a lot more about that game than the instead. They're in a tough division race to saint trying to show up and they're not coasting they need the ONC- that might cause them the one seed now they don't have the time they don't think they need the one-seat at all I think they've gone lately. Dana by the saints. I heard that well rounded of a team drew brees outside of the Dome in the playoffs is not very good. Look it up look it up. I don't have to look look it up. They they have Thomas. I Trust Mars. Minute non-fat Sean Payton. I trust their defense. It's my it's my power rankings. All right and I'm Ed your chance chance. There's no logic to it. I think the best football team in the league I think the best football team in the right. So who's number two number two the Baltimore Ravens I. I'm just not fully buying it yet. I'm not buying after nine. Straight wins rather there gritting out dominating the top team the league. I don't know what else they have to show you. I don't know either but when it hits me it'll hit me bottom line so so I think the ravens are too. Yeah that's that's really the only reason number three. I'll give it to the no number. Three is the chiefs because they're getting hot at the right time. That defense is finally starting to play together. And I mean Mahomes the fastest as-as team in football. Andy Reid will see Andy. Reid come the late winners when it gets really cold out. But you're you're Andy Reid. Supporters big a big her but sometimes forget that much any timeouts. Yes so I've got the chiefs three because I have to put them in somewhere like because because there are eleven into but you know how much I hate the niners and think they're frauds I want actually if eagles make the playoffs we're GONNA play one of the two. NFC West teams. I would love to play Seattle at home and then I have no problem and I don't think any other team in the NFC power rankings. The Eagles do not even. They're not saying saying what am I point. I don't think any team in the NFC is afraid to go into San Fran. Because I don't think many people believe that team and I don't think you're that big of Oliver and I actually actually disagree. I think you're one of the only ones still holding out on the niners. Garoppolo proved himself last week on the road. He put us so one game one game in in in what you want their eleven. I know but one you said. Garoppolo proved himself. He didn't prove himself on Monday. Night against Seattle. He proves himself one week peak in Seattle. He's a he's a kick away from beating Seattle. How quarterbacks kicks away from Super Bowls who cares I don't believe we've got a point. Yeah I don't believe that yet. So just knock but you're never going to believe it you're only GonNa pick either Russell Wilson Carson. I went has never done anything. And you're so confident you can beat two teams second. Half you played the new. The Eagles do not belong in the power rankings. I didn't put the the the conversation about them. Policemen I got the niners for and I used to think Seattle was that good and I kind of you don't need more so I think I do i. Just yeah I don't know I think they're vulnerable. I'm going to go to England. I'm going to go New England because of that defense. If the offense offense the offense can't be like this the rest of the year Kennet. Yes they don't have weapons. Brady's washed I JOHN IS NOT TOM IS I. Don't think that this is GonNa continue the offense all the way all the way into the postseason. What's going to change it or not a not that issue? The core worship that differentiates itself Brady Brady. No it's not that it's the old line that is has always been his Achilles heel. If you get pressure on Tom He struggles and now at at the age he is and the washed up nece that he's gone through it really is affecting him. Okay so what do you do you check down okay so take away the checkout you rely on the running game study Michelle has just disappeared from the earth. Okay so go to the big. Tom Rob Gronkowski. They have no skill players so newest newest been just nothing for them. They can't catch passes their patios all over the field like they're they're just not that good and that defense is good. It's just not elite. Listen listen I'm not sitting here glorifying. The New England patriots as Your Twenty Twenty Super Bowl champions. But I'm just saying that thought about what you're talking about a fifth spot in my power. Our rankings. I'm between the Seattle seahawks. I'm actually staring at the Los Angeles Rams I'm not GonNa put them in there. I'm not putting them in but they're on. They're on their way up and I think they win this week. But but I'm deciding between Seattle. Green Bay and New England and Green Bay is giving Green Bay love. They play quarters at a time. They just go. They'll go crazy in the first fifteen minutes of a game and then the offense will be gone it. There's such a weird team remember early in the season when I told you about Rogers and how I said something's off something's different is not the same. He's still there your quarterback but he's not like the guy do you remember and you were saying I'm an idiot. What have his numbers won't don't reflect that but for whatever he's all over twitter? I see these people breaking down. He has gained this new tendency where he won't throw a ball anywhere near a defender so oh he just throws it away which keeps his interceptions down but it really eliminates any big playability and stuff. So I don't know I just don't think they're that good. That defense is offensive. We've seen it before. The defense is a bend. Don't break defense. They'll give up four hundred and fifty yards a game but somehow hold it below twenty three points and that's not bill. That's not dealt for sustaining success. So I'M GONNA go roll roll with New England. I mean they've got cameras at every practice facility and the country So I'm rolling with Bell. Thom I'm rolling bill. Yes that's always a safe bet I most important game in my opinion of the the week is that game. Houston travels Tennessee. The hottest quarterback in the League Ryan Tanno They've won what five zero six seven with him. They are favorites. They're both eight and five. The crazy thing is if Tennessee wins and the steelers beat the bills at home which I think is plausible. CAUSAL WE'LL GET to that game Houston would be out of the playoffs. All the hype around the Shawn Watson and that team coming together. Finally they have the allying. They would be currently out of the A playoff with two weeks to go. I think Tennessee is GONNA win. You're obviously very adamant that the titans can only finish eight and eight even though I have proven to you. They've made the playoffs with the better record I just think ten miles to hot. I'm not going against him and Houston is just their question mark every week I. So they're both what eight and five right now. They played twice. Tennessee goes Houston homebush. Houston at the saints and then at Houston Houston to end the year and because Houston has the divisional one game division record right now. That means Tennessee has to win at least have to win both of the Games against Houston because they don't play another divisional opponent Houston plays Tampa. So you gotTA assume that Houston's going to be Tampa so you're saying the titans in order to win the division to beat the Texans twice. I mean I wouldn't shock. beat Houston like it wouldn't shock me right now. Houston coming off of really bad loss against Denver..
"gerrit cole" Discussed on You're Wrong... And Here's Why
"Rei Gregory we're back for our third and final segment of this week's episode of you're wrong and here's why we're in talks about. Why Antonio Brown another diva wide receiver has talked locked himself out of getting another shot in the national football league? Tell me why this guy this guy just can not not stop getting on twitter and just yelling into neither like it's it's actually unreal and only really does is take shots. He weirdly. Apologizes to Robert Kraft but also take shots. And I'm like I don't I don't get it I don't understand. And and then today he's tweeting basically like f the NFL. Like all day He's he's tweeting out like search statistics from Google. The most searched person was in the United States in twenty nineteen. And it's like dude. You were the reason you were. That is not because of a good thing. Let's let's the people on this list Antonio Brown right Jussie smollet David Ortiz. You've got shot. Andrew Luck retired. Bryce Harper signed the richest contract in the NFL myles. Garrett hit a guy with a helmet like twenty one savage got. They found out that that dude was actually like British or something. I don't know I don't follow pop. Culture that much Kevin Hart almost died in a car. Accident R R Kelly. We don't even need to get into it. What we what happened R Kelly? I mean R. Kelly has my child's Godfather. Is there something you you may want to Google it. Chris I mean you're talking about most of these people on these lists not because of good things. Things like Robert Kraft on this list and that's because he had a couple of trips to Florida. It's just like this is this is just down. The Mercer on the most searched athlete in the world on this on that I don't need the NFL but then every other day you're tweeting back at the NFL. He has now. It's now reached that boiling point which we sort of touched on last segment. Where I don't think anybody's willing to deal with this willing to touch this with a two hundred hurt foot pole like I don't care how many rows he's running against random corners on high school fields like I don't think an NFL team is going to want a a circus that is going to follow Antonio Brown? Here's the thing that you fail to take into consideration. Talent Wenzel every single time and especially specially discounted talent wins out every single time and Brown is certainly going to have to take an immense discount for whomever the next team. The signs look I heard from drew Rosenhaus himself and drew. Rosenhaus is not a guide ally yourself promote that. A number of teams are interested in bringing in Antonio Brown on as soon as he all. This nonsense is resolved and he is cleared. I think what the NFL is doing is very interesting because the NFL has kind of unofficially really suspended him without actually having to suspend him by announcing that if he is signed he could be placed on the the Commissioner Schnur six exempt lift exempt list. Excuse me and so he's he's kind of been unofficially suspended already and teams. Don't know what's coming next but that's GONNA be less of a concern once the year's over and you're not worried about having this guy in for the end of the season he's going to be on somebody's roster he's GonNa be in training camp with some team next next year. There's no question in my mind. It would be hilarious if it was the buffalo bills. I think that's the most apropos fit for him to end up being the elite star receiver in Buffalo team that he ate refused to go to like five months ago. But it's talent wins out. There's there's no way in the world. Antonio Brown's is not getting another chance to play in the national football league. I just don't I don't get what his plan is. Just it's it's the like I look and see. I don't even have to follow him on twitter because it just gets re tweeted and pushed out there so crazy on a daily basis that you're you're just like dude. What are you doing? He send in just random chips and random videos and highlights and talking about getting in touch with God. And you're like man like just stay silent like just stay silent and you help yourself out so much more because you're bringing more and more attention more and more circus tweeting out free. The goat a random videos of him catching pass Hasselbeck touchdown passes from Tom Brady. Did you played one game. Like I don't know I don't know what we're doing. I don't know what we're doing here like we get it. Man You you got a touchdown catch in the one game. You played with for the Patriots like I. I don't know how to take that. I don't know what to interpret from this video that he's is the greatest wide receiver from the NFL today and deserves the chance to play football. Sure but you can't keep tweeting f. f. m. when everybody wants somebody brings up the NFL or or somebody says there's zero percent chance that Antonio Brown aeroplanes another snap in the NFL. and that was from Marcus. Mosier whatever over that. Whoever that guy is seen liable service? Yeah but he tweets that. And you're you're randomly quote tweeting people and just saying FM. Do there's nowhere else to go events. McMahon's GonNa come and bring you the XFL like I don't I don't know serious talk here. How smart would some XFL team be to throw incredible amounts of money a Cabernet Antonio Brown? I mean it would be ratings ratings heaven even and and Jersey Heaven no I mean they would they would make and Vincent Man. He's a marketer. He is a marketer so there is no doubt he knows how to merchandise these things. You could still walk around today and see you know stone. Cold Steve Austin t shirts and a couple of weeks ago. There's a new wrestling organization. That's out there. Eight W we see the commercials everywhere. Of course it's never it's nonstop. Stop but there was a guy in the front row the entire episode. He continued to point to his shirt and turn around and he had A. He hate me. Jersey amazed vigil. XFL He hate me Jersey. Which is unreal that you still have that first of all knows one but but number two? It just proves that Vince McMahon knew what he was doing back then if not for some of the other poorly run things and weird opportune things that the thirty for thirty on that put out their team with cavern and Antonio Brown on it would be just exact thing that they need to get people to pay attention. That's what happened. The problem with the AF is that nobody cared almost immediately week. One it was cool and then it just died. 'cause nobody cared and nobody was interesting. Unless you wanted to watch that old Alabama data running back who played for the colts. I can't think of his name trend. Richardson yes unless you watch him. Score two yard touchdown pass touchdown. Runs for the Birmingham whatever's and then then you're watching that that leak okay couple of things one. The only Birmingham team I care about or will ever care about the Birmingham Barons. Second Yeah That was a giant missed opportunity because I actually weirdly thought the AFC presentation was very good. If you watched one of those games seems like you could be tricked into thinking like Oh this is showing a replay of an NFL. Game until you've been looked at the jerseys and all that but production values were great. I I thought the the commentators did a nice job it was well put together. It just wasn't engaging in any way I do I wanna hit this buffalo thing. Got Real quick again buffalo and Pittsburgh this weekend because I think this game is fascinating jujubes back James Connors back in this bills defense has just been playing out of his mind. Signed over the past couple of weeks and BEVANDA has the steelers minus one and a half at home. Who Do you like their Dakar? Progess seems to have done this. steelers offense I know they got the big punt return which which helped sort of propelled them to the lead against the cardinals and the elector defense different sort of takeover man that bills. The bills. Offense is the scariest part which is why the Brown thing. There's there's sort of the most intriguing. I kind of like a steelers at home in that game. The bills as as much as they controlled sort of Lamar Jackson. In for a part of that game they sort of broke down and they have some openings and I think I think the steelers right now are the better coach team. They've realized all the right ain't they've pushed all the right buttons with all the adversity that they faced against them. I'm not taking anything away. From what Sean McDermott done fellow Salam. I'm not I'm not taking anything away on what he's done from what he's done in buffalo mainly because I just. I don't think he's phenomenal job. I think he's been really excellent. Sort of turned around a franchise that was then. It'd been floundering for a very long time but I think that hard Tomlin just has he. Has This weird magic touch. I mean think about it Chris. What was a week five or six? We were talking about Mike Tomlin being fired by the steelers dealers and now all of a sudden they have a potential grasp but the six seed. It's IT'S A. It's a really interesting team right now. I kind of like the steelers fair enough I. It's an unfortunate end. The show anything pro Pittsburgh Butts. I don't begrudge your thoughts however wrong. They may be Gregory. I'll look it's it's been a another fun week here at you're wrong and here's why talked about a lot accomplished a lot. I nailed everything three and L. Once again and we're looking forth doing it again next week. Four Greg Chris Forward L.. Thanks for listening and we'll see you back here next week..
"gerrit cole" Discussed on You're Wrong... And Here's Why
"Where with abandon Greg? We are back and I want to talk talk a little bit about the hottest hot news. The hottest of hot takes in the NFL right now. Odell Beckham in this weird situation with the Cleveland browns. I I'm GonNa tell you that. I genuinely believe despite all the rumors that were hearing all the talk. That Odell could be moving to another team. that he's begging opposing teams to come trade forum Allah Eric Berry so many years ago with the cowboys the best move for Odell is to remain with the Cleveland browns. And I think this is true for a a couple of reasons one first of all. He's not having a bad year. There's this talk. That Odell Beckham Junior is suffering through this incredibly terrible season in Cleveland and that things are never going to be right with him again. He will never be a superstar again. He's he's basically you know James Thrash at this point. He's on pace to catch seventy three passes for over one thousand yards. It's a very good season borderline. Alan pro bowl numbers now. I know we're having a lot of Rod. Receivership had big seasons this year. So seventy-three on thousand years probably doesn't make it but those are borderline order line pro bowl numbers also one of the better seasons than any wide receiver in Cleveland browns. History has had in quite some time. And so there's the other thing to this team is going to get better and better and better if we believe this. The sports hernia nonsense. Which I think is a little bit of an excuse is to be honest with you but if we believe this then there's no reason to think that Beckham's not going to be back stronger than ever next year? He'll be more athletic quicker. He'll have his burst back and he will now have the benefit of having a season under his belt with Baker Mayfield. I think that missing these T.. As in the fact that he didn't practice much in training in camp really hampered the production this year. You know this isn't. This isn't a guy who is going to skip time in years six of his career with the New York giants and he knows that. Look me alive play together for five seasons we know what each other is thinking. We know what each other is going to do. This time isn't going to hurt anything. BECCA missed just incredibly valuable developmental time in terms of building rapport with quarterback. When he wasn't there working out with Mayfield? Not as and stuff like that that is going to come in time and point three is that and I want you to run. All these Gregory Point three is is that he's on that cusp of becoming coming the more trouble than he's worth diva wide receiver. He is not far off from teams. Wondering is it worth it to bring Odell Beckham in and once you get that label. It's really really tough to shake. Yes that's a hundred percent accurate right and that will take a quick break. Yeah no you keep doing this. My Mustang was Oh dell is I I think he's in a situation with a quarterback who loves to speak his mind in Baker Mayfield and they think that causes an issue when Ode L. was in New York his issue with the media the way the media covered him the way. The media made everything about Odell Beckham Junior front page news. But you never really heard teammates or anyone really say anything about the situation or about what's going on You know any of the issues with off the field stuff with the weird pizza box video with the boat trip with appeared on field antics. That would go back and forth You never you never heard teammates say things and then there's this weird situation this this week with the sports hernia stuff from Baker and Baker is a guy that wears his emotions on his sleeve. And just Kinda says what comes to him in in a Lotta situations and especially like if you look at how he reacted to the myles Garrett thing and Kudos to the way for the way he handled that that post game press you know own field. Press conference was handled very well. This situation whatever. It is not handled. Great I I don't think I don't think you should be commenting about other players injuries. And I don't know how that's GonNa go over with a guy like Odell Beckham and if the rumors are true that he's telling other teams to come save him like earl. Thomas did with the cowboys this last year. Two years ago right before he broke his eric. Berry was it's it's okay That's that's weird weird thing to do but at that point if you are the browns and you think that you are going to get better like you're saying that you're going to consistently assistant get better. This is clearly a guy who is all about his own success. He's about the Odell Beckham Junior show. It's not about the team it's about what I can do about You know look at me here. Here's my best. Plays out here doing all the individual one handed catches. All you know all that crazy stuff and it's not about winning it's about building that Oh. BJ brand versus that. And if you're the browns you almost would look to part ways and add assets little hanky model for you get get some assets for him. Whatever you can get and move on? You have a good enough team. You can upgrade greater wide receiver. You're clearly covered at running back. You don't have to worry about that for a long time. Baker is obviously your guy that got much better as the season's gone on in your defense with they ever let Myles Garrett back on the field which I assume will happen next year. I mean that's that's sure it up. I just don't see see. I don't see a negative for Cleveland. If they if they let him go no matter how many catches he has will the negative. Is You lose one of the preeminent playmakers in all of professional football a guy who can change the course of the game with one catch and one cut guy who opposing defenses have to who consistently plan against and that opens up things for everyone else if this is look. I think the sports hernia thing is weird because one Odell L. doesn't strike me as a guy who suffers in silence and if he's been dealing with this all year than I think we would have heard about it before I think that excuse or AH justification would have come out prior to this so do I think he's hurt. I think he's heard a little. Do I think it's a sports hernia. I don't know about that but if that's true if it is a sports hernia then he's just going to get better and better like did they mishandled the situation. Sure I don't see any negative at all to Baker Mayfield coming out sticking up for his guy saying look. This wasn't handled correctly the training staff let us down. Is it the the best thing to say for the morale of the the front office. No it's not but it's only going to endear him to Odell Beckham because he's they're supporting and Becca meazza houses back. I'm not worried about that I just I just don't see any reason. Were moving on from Beckham is something that would be the browns best interests and you talked about getting whatever you can get for him. Let's talk about depreciated value. How much value has Odell Beckham junior lost since since last year when Cleveland traded effectively a first round pick in Djibril peppers a actual first round pick in the third round? Pick it to get him. What is what? What is Beckham worth now? I mean I still think you could get a first round pick from someone you may not get to but I think that there are more than enough teams. That would be willing to give to give that up. They just. You're right. Beckham does have talent. That talent has racked up. What two touchdowns this year? Two Games over one hundred yards. I mean we're talking you know. Let's let's look at some names that have more. TV's than Oj that you can't play that game. Why can't then we play that Game Taylor? Gabriel alshon Jeffery alshon Jeffery superstar. Oh is he. He's a big Nelson. Aguilar has more touchdowns was this year. That Beckham Junior Nelson Aguilar is a game-breaker who who who changed completely. When he was allowed to go back to his natural position of the slot and I would argue? Well worth the first round pick. The Eagles used on him. I'm sure Miles Boykin. I don't even know who that is. He has plans mild number of touchdown. Big Athletic wide receiver from Notre Dame. Sure sure John. Ross General Score Two touchdowns in the first week of the season and he's still has more touchdowns than and then he missed like nine games and he still has has more touchdowns than Odell Beckham. So as for as talented as he is and has dynamic is years and the and the preeminent playmaker as you described he he hasn't done it in Cleveland and I know that he gets the most focus because he's there number one wide receiver but number. One guy still put up touchdowns it still happens. Happens guys get double covered guys. Get guys get you know mashed up with the best corner every single week. You're talking about the guys who lead the League in that touchdown down stat guys like Kenny Golladay. WHO had third string quarterbacks throwing to Chris Godwin who has what's his name James? He wins rowing him him. He's got a mirror image of twenty five year old of course of course Allen Robinson who's up towards the top of the list who has basically you know the rookie quarterback and Mitch trubisky throwing to him. I mean even. Aj Brown rookies rookies to have more TD's Cole Beasley for that awful bills. Offense has more touchdown catches dairy sorry Darius late in the two on on Monday night. He had more touchdowns or the same number of touchdowns on Monday night against the eagles terrible secondary then. Ob Jay has all year easy exact same number number. You're drunk you're you're raving. I don't think so. I think I think the thing is. I think the thing is with with Odell Beckham. Is We have this portrayal of how good he is. Because of a one handed weird lay back touchdown catch that happened in his rookie year. And it's been portrayed as he is some ultimate superstar top tier receiver he's fouled it up sure with some very very very good performances differences. Yes now that he's been found out but now that he has been figured out he has been slowdown in these departments. You can say figured out when what are you talking about. Because ninety one catches ninety six catches one hundred and one catches in two thousand seventeen was the year he got hurt. Still had twenty five catches in four games on page one hundred two thousand.
