"We saw it twice this weekend. Boone said he does play into play him more in the outfield in the american league games. We'll see if that actually happens but say stanton can play the outfield three games. A week is realistic for stanton in the outfield. I mean it's impossible for me to say that that's realistic. Because just haven't seen it. I mean he's played two games in the past year. Plus your two years. I mean the guy outfield. So is it realistic. Can he do it sure he should be able to do it. He looked fine out there yet. You should be playing the outfield to give the yankees more flexibility when they need to rotate d. h. spot and now theoretically with with void back starting his rehab association. He's starting his rehab stint in scranton. So yeah if he's feeling good and he's back he's another bathak and add to this lineup. So yes there's another need for a guy getting in there so play the goddamn outfield when we need to flex the spot around. And you can't just do on that one day you gotta do it a couple of days to get get those represents so and also to get any value out avoid. He can't just once a week and then play as once a week. he pretty much needs to play. He needs to d. h. Three games a week. I think which is the games that stay in is playing the outfield. And then maybe he gets resort day off at first base. Every two weeks or something like that but i mean voice. Kind of is the odd man. Out in with the current roster alignment. I but i. I don't expect everyone was like. Oh when's he getting trained. Once he getting traded his he saw value like even in the off seat if they want to trade him in the off season if they do decide rizzo's our long-term first baseman. He's he's the lefty. He's the lefty first baseman bat. That we've been dreaming about since gregg burge like got that little twinkle in ri. Back in two thousand fifteen. If rizzo's their answer fine they could trade look voight but would not shock me at all if luke voice their starting first baseman in two thousand twenty two. No it would not surprise me. It wouldn't shock me. I hope it's not the case. Because now i'm beginning very excited for for for somebody else but Speaking of greg bird corre equerry shell longtime friend of the show Hopefully she doesn't talked to weather people anymore. That's another story altogether but she There was a great bird sighting in albuquerque aaa for colorado in a in a picture that she tagged us on and i of course went out a greg bird rabbit hole to find out what's going on in his world fourteen home runs in a in aaa aaa. Yeah was it last year. He got up with the rangers. For brief time is that fisher colorado but i was looking at his stats registered. Stats in twenty. I don't know if you just if he didn't play at all last year or what. I'm not sure thought. He was with the rangers for like a week. He was with the rangers for like a hot minute.

"Remember, brother supply has it in stock your calls will lead it off with willow Long Island will will. That's why the Covent on I called earlier in the week in who the Yankee should set down. And I don't think they can honestly I'm gonna tell you why. He's a backup for station right now. 'cause I forgot that Greg bird is going to be out for who knows how long and I don't wanna have DJ day, you'd be played every single day, who has a play station a long time. So I just ran up the guy to stay. I mean I get what you're saying, but DJ can play first base. So why would I kind of tie up a roster spot with Kendrick Morales? I mean, we mentioned Clint Frazier is the most likely to go because the options that he has which stinks for him. We asked him think about it. Right. When guys get healthy. He's just going to be likeliest unless you sit in the cover off the bride's white every hot streak. Every slump is such a big deal. Morale is he's not that good at this point his career, and I get the whole joke put him on the Yankees lit a few home runs. But I feel between DJ LeMay you and even having to move into an emergency Austin, Romana first base, I don't think it's that necessary to keep morale on the roster. I think you've got other guys they can fill in at first base led by DJ LeMay, Hugh. We may see a lot more of it. I think when they initially signed them, there was a thought that he was going to have to play a little bit more first base, because they were unsure about what Luke void actually was right? Let's go to Tommy in Brooklyn. Tommy, tommy. Hey, what's up guys? How know that Rodger Davis homerun last night was so similar to the home run that he hits? Yeah. In the World Series where he just failed off, like ten pitches in a row. And then he he pulled one over the left field fence. Yeah. Just it reminds me so much of that bad. And then I also wanted to bring up, and I'm not sure if you've caught next read last night on Atlanta kid could pitch man another gym against San Francisco. I know a lot of people land. Atlanta. But that, that kid is a good pitcher. We gotta be on the lookout for him and they've need discount. They've needed that because Sean nukem who is ineffective starter last year got sent down. Now he's in their bullpen could play a pig. Roll their Fulton. Nevis had injury issue, so they've needed guys to step up, but not free is a good looking young arm. I thought yesterday, not just Rajai. Davis is home run and it's funny, I think of Rajai Davis. I think of one of the biggest home runs in baseball history. That will probably forget, for now, we remember it because they didn't win Soriano one for the price on a similar. Right. But I thought yesterday in a very nondescript fifth inning. They had back to back at bats against max Scherzer won by JD Davis. He ended up striking out and one by your area. We worked a walk where was eight and nine pitches against sherzer, and that was the story. They had a lot of long quality at bats specifically max early in the game that drove that pitch count up so high that they were able to chase him. Is the Mets. They weren't scoring runs out a lot of good at-bats last night. Jake kept him in a game just giving up that one run he did anything about Jake is it was very similar to max in that over the first four innings his pitch count, was very reasonable very last to win. Got through pitches in the last two innings and that was the key. It was Brian and keyboard. Hi, brian. Hey, how you doing? Speaking of plays that don't mean anything after big moments and veges catches similar. Thanks. Bye. Also Robinson can do you think that there's a chance that he faked injury last night, just approved for the Mets? Like this is why I don't hustle. I just think he's old yet. PD's. Yep. Jack and Morristown you. Hey guys, listen. I think you're missing something pretty obvious. With glaze over and Gary sitting out tonight. And if you watch the game that you saw that pitch go right behind Luke Boyd head. Come on. That is I think that, listen, if you were the Orioles, gotta be peo- getting wipe out every single game. I think there's something Bruin right there. Your theory, Jack is that Boone is saying, look, I don't wanna risk Gary your labor. Getting drilled lemme just sit them. We could win without him. I want to avoid that kind of conflict. That's your theory. Absolutely one hundred percent. Bye bye. You think they're going to win. Anyway. Without those guys. You know, I know. But I can't buy that I mean, we let's just err on the side that it was a day off of both of we can win. Anyway, without those guys in a lineup not that they don't want worried. They're going to get drilled. You know it's funny. I don't bite either. But here's the caveat to the whole thing, the fact that you're not playing labor tours today, unless there's an injury, always caveat lead, you to think that it makes so little sense that maybe something as crazy as that is true, you know, because it doesn't make sense to not play. Bell doesn't at all that to help his point, if this matters after today, the Yankees don't play the Orioles until August. They played thirteen games, right? In Washington state break between now and then imagine you think the Orioles a bad now. Yeah. Imagine August fifth when the Yankees back to Baltimore night Asher in Lakewood Asher. Yeah. Guys, I just want to ask a couple points on the Yankees, first of all, do you think say doesn't Thawra you consider that maybe, you know, against every other team in baseball, their average of below average and older numbers garbage oil pitching. What do you think? Well, I mean most of the teams the Yankees have played this year have not been very good. I mean. A really bad. Terrific. But I, I, I don't think Gary Sanchez has done enough in the major leagues offensively obviously not last year in which he's just good. He's a power hitter. It's a lot of home runs, especially when and it wouldn't be. I mean he's good bottom line. Yeah. Yeah. I, I give you that belies day wasn't that good? Yeah. I just wanna point out everyone's talking about how Saint Louis gave up this guy. And I really love a little boy. But if you watch this guy, you know night in night out he cannot hit a fastball. He cannot pull up basketball to left field. And I don't know if that's gonna catch him. He can only get breaking both failed on festivals too, right? Going the other way, a great power the way right? Gary Sanchez this year has three home runs in nine at bats against the Minnesota Twins, the team who at this moment. Right. Is maybe v best or second best team in the American League. So he's we've been productive against them. The twins it outside of the killer liba teams. The Yankees have destroyed the Minnesota twenty dollars. Scared by this twin Yankees, I look on your team. I'm not saying they're gonna win the division man. Man. It looks that way. But he got a four and a half game. We don't click with all six and a half six and a half. Yeah. They've extended that lead. It's to run annoys debate. Hey, ron. Hey guys how you doing? Hi, ron. I know what TNT two second-guessed canot signing. But here's the question question is, is that it seems to me that if they had known what they had in the it seems to me, if they had known what they had in McNeil? They probably wouldn't have made that signing spent the money elsewhere. So did they did they not know what they have? Thing. Now they got the as tray to. And I think the reason they took on salary on to basically, get these. I don't think they did. I don't think they were capable just wasn't a free agent signing. No, it was the windy as trade. I don't know if the Mets were capable of just simply trading windy as it would evolve much in prospects. My issue with the code deal was this. Now I'm wrong about one thing specifically with canno-. I didn't think he'd be bad this year. Good that she had to. And so far we've been dead wrong, and that's a big problem. But my big issue was if you're going to take on kudos contract. You can't also give prospects. And if you're gonna give a big prospect, you can't also take on Kono's deal. It has to be one or the other. And it bothered me that Brody agreed to both saying, hey, I'm gonna give you one of our prize prospects and pitching prospect, and I'm gonna pay Robbie twenty million dollars a year to me that was too much. It's one of the other if I'm going to take on the wars contract in baseball this, Chris Davis, then I don't wanna have to give you one of my top prospects. And I think that's the problem at least I had initially on the deal. The second problem is, as we just pointed out, he's been terrible terrible and I'm surprised by that. Yeah. Me too. Get three right? He's been right in line with by alma. That's what he's been. And what's worse than by alimony? Got it. For five more years. Bingo..

"Offers offer ends four thirty nineteen lineup today. And obviously they have missing a ton of guy. I mean, you think about it. I look at this starting lineup, and I see three and a half guys that would have been or should have been everyday players for this team Brett Gardner's leading off. He's the half because to many breath Gartner's fourth outfielder, obviously these days he can't be with all these injuries in center. Aaron judge the last man standing almost wanna put him in bubble wrap. He's in right field. BJ? Lemay Hugh is batting third. And he's been great. Give him credit. Glacier is cleaning up. Another one of those starters. You want to put him in bubble wrap the defensively looked shaky last night, Greg bird. How is everybody hurt? But not Greg bird. You think about it that way that's kind of kind of nuts. Clint Frazier is today the immortal Mike packman is in left field. Kyle haggis Ohka is catching in batting eighth. Entitled is batting. I think about the seven through nine for a second pock, man, Higushi Ohka and Wade as C Sobat the takes the out and face his former friend of Nova that beat up. There's nobody's nobody's going to die that there's a shell of their former selves, but you just need individuals to step up, Greg bird. This is his chance step up. Clint Frazier has been good LeMay who's been good Garner's been hitting the ball over the fence. Lately. Tyler wade. I mean, here's the problem. Tyler Wade is facing it's bad enough that Tyler Wade is never hit in the major leagues. But I think a lot of people myself included are now attaching his lines his comments every was sent down and use it against them. Now saying, oh, you were so ticked off your sent down. How about you get a couple of hits? But Tyler Wade is batting ninth and playing second. No, you're shallow. Who's actually been pretty good offensively Giovanni? Your shell is not in the lineup. Luke Voight is not in the lineup. So those guys get Austin role. Mine is not in the lineup now surprise day game after game as the Yankees looked to even up this series against the Chicago White Sox. He is Steve Somers official islander reporter. He's Ozzy in woodridge high Ozzy. To me last night. What do you mean? I mean, he kept me on hold until the the sun rose in these. Wow. Wow. How long how long were you on hold? I'll tell you. What what the window was the Yankees were in that rain delay? So they went to summer's, right? And then it soon as they call the Yankee game officially over. They went to the post game show with Sweeney. Right. And there was a thirty minute window there where he was taking phone calls, and he took like many many people before he took me and he saw my name. Did did he take your phone? Call. No. He did not. Oh, we did. Not take your Steve. If you're listening to Steve Somers too. I know he's listening. That's a great job out of you. That is. No, no. That is Steve you're the Franken man that you made Ozzy sit. Not like it's not like you never done that before. I I don't think I have I think what's happening and in all seriousness. What happens sometimes is? We don't see a call up there like that does happen occasionally. But. The other thing that is so great if Sobers did that I love them because you know, what we we do love you is. I think Steve like you want to. Through there. That's great. My wife, I understand listed. I know I wear off people relatively quickly. If I to want to deal with this guy. Ernie essentially. I want to get him started. But in the last night, even you know in this, of course, the electric aisles. Yes. Those met sees those young and upcoming that sees yes. And those washed up Yankees trying to squeeze in a game where they probably shouldn't have thinking they were going to get an easy win versus the White Sox. And it backfired in their face. Yes. Excuse me. I don't think that's a fair description of what happened with the Yankees. First of all, I wouldn't call them the washed up Yankees. I would call the incredibly undermanned Yankees. Now you want to attack a half? That's fine. No problem have been bad. And I get the fan who's angry with them right now. And here's the problem with the scheduling we have in baseball because the White Sox are only making one visit to the Bronx. You really gotta get the game in or you're going to play a doubleheader today or tomorrow, if you're playing the Red Sox, you can be more conservative about it and actually rain the game out. And then get to it the next time they come in. But at least for for people like Ozzy for someone like myself who is a met fan who is an islander fan. Last night. Was a great night. I just hope it continues today in Philadelphia. Against the Sixers in game one of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals Eric in Ronkonkoma. Good morning, Eric how're you doing? Like, you almost men now the fan will always you luck on your nets. Thank can also. And the other thing I'm thrilled that at the moment though, Brooke listeners on thrilled about that. You know, look now that this one the first two games. I mean, I was hoping to go to game five if there is one that just my schedule just won't allow it, unfortunately. But, but what do you think realistically it is the chances are of winning this series? I feel much better about it. The win the series started. I still believe because of the talent on that roster because of the experience on that roster that this is going to be a long series. You know, and this is a cliche. But like, I say, sometimes cliches are occasionally, right? Cliches is a series doesn't really begin until a team loses on their home court or on home ice. Pittsburgh is going home. They have postseason experience as we know. They won the back toback cops. They have the greatest player in all the land in Sidney Crosby. They've got a goaltender with championship experience. Matt murray. I don't think this is going to be easy. Now, do I feel great about it that the islanders are halfway there? Absolutely. Especially with the way they've played in these two games on Long Island. But I just don't think it's going to be easy. This is still an incredibly talented team. Chris in Virginia. I chris. It's all right. You know, the last time I called me talk to both of you guys cracking me up. So just jumped on there, my bad, it's but now, let's talk a little playoff. I heard your points about like, what are you in the first round is going to be and like that I'm a Celtic fan. And I think they'll be fine. Especially like, Marcus smart distinct, especially they want to upset the bucks in the second round. But it shouldn't have a problem with Indiana and five dumping said go metric nets here to do. We see I went to that last net game in those nephew drive me insane. The Kyrie's leaving Chan which I do not think we'll happen, by the way. However, I would love another pleasing can hate the Sixers more than like the next day. Please Lord upset the Sixers. They think they have a great shot to do. So if Embiid is going to be not hundred percent, I think I think if if obviously is going to be he has got to be huge. You're saying early the bench guys very crucial as well. No doubt. And you know, it's funny. I hear that for Philly. It's important. I've even said this when Ruko was on earlier about boy if you're slap Philly early and you steal a game one. They could turn on each other. I think for a young team in the nets have some veterans that have experienced the postseason tomorrow. Carol Jared Dudley at Davis guys like that. But I think for the young guys who've never experienced it getting success early is a big deal. Getting that confidence early is a big deal and as far as and beats concern whether he plays or not and like I said, I'm always going to expect him to play. He's obviously in pain and not one hundred percent. But when he's played over the last month, and he has played a handful of games he's been productive. So he may be in a lot of pain, but it least over the last few weeks in those rare times he's played he still a game changing kind of player offensively and defensively, but they're going to have to be aggressive, Adam, and they're going to have to be physical with them. And that's where I think Davis plays a huge role in this game today. And in this series now real quick Lougee. Ask the question you wanted to ask me because it's a very interesting question. And I'll answer it after the top of the hour. Okay. My question first of all I time longtime we we met an applebees one seven. Joking around. So okay. So the four big teams you before jets islanders Mets. Nets all have young core. Nucleus is what team are you most excited about which team? Do you have the things has the brightest future? Even if that means the owners went in the cop it could be immediate future. Whatever so wanna throw that. I'll hang up, and listen, I answer. Thank you. I'll give you the answer after the twelve o'clock update. Plus, I do have to get in my complaint. My annual complain of rain-shortened games in baseball on how it could hose. The Yankees out of a playoff.

"I'm gonna get ten thousand more at bats in the big leagues. I have nothing to worry about this. No big deal. It needs to be a sense of urgency for Greg bird because you know, what? Once the Yankees start getting some of these players back into the fold whether it's Giancarlo Stanton. Aaron Hex mcgilla do are. He's not gonna have a chance to play. So he has to make the most of these at bats. No. You look at Coon Frazier Coon Frazier, at least for the time being is making the most of his playing he's making the most of his pets can't instead about Greg bird. So couple of weeks from now Frazier's continuing to hey and bird is not hitting what then Greg bird down online lakes and find a way to get Coon Frazier's back in the lineup that should be infringers goal. I wondered how did he look against a premium pitcher like just in Berlin? That's really good at bats. Won't it bat. So a lot of pitches. It's good contact. Really good sense. On the other hand with an away like crazy. I said the Brooklyn Willie up next on a foul is Willie JJ. Good morning. My brother. How are you, sir? William morning to what he got. I listen MandA fantasy wasting Thailand they should have your prime time. You should be to me after manual. You have the best man my pre shit that. What is very very JJ. I want to talk about the Yankees. Listen, severino. Man. I don't know, man. I'm worry. I think he I think he he knew that. He was he was injure, and that's why he took that kind of contract. And and I don't know I think we should go out for title. And I'm gonna let you go. Thank you will appreciate the call. I don't think Severino took a contract from the Yankees because of an injury that is simply comes down to long term stability your pitcher. And you know, how fickle ease injuries can beat on. How fickle the status of a lot of these pictures can be get a chance to have that guarantee. Loot and you could buy a couple of years of free agency. You got to do it. It's just. Business. It's what a lot of sports teams. Do. It's what a lot of players wanna do because they want to have that guarantee and who could blame him for it. They took the contract from the Yankees in spring training because he knew this was coming fifth contract was smart move. The problem is the Yankees, Luis Severino. Say what you want about his performances in the postseason the last couple of years Severin on the regular season last few years the money in the Bank. So the Yankees not to have that presence in rotation. It's well make no mistake. It's a major ball. And it's going to put that much more pressure an emphasis on Paxton have an Tanaka to all go out and perform deliver. Let's head to Carolina Tyler is up next. He's on a families up Talla. That's right. We've got the legend of all legends, Charlotte. The last ten years general manager when was last time everything good about this. Charlotte audits. That's another great name the bring up. Now, the big difference with Michael Jordan. No Tyler remember, he played at North Carolina. He played for the Chicago Bulls. It's not like he has this great history to Charlotte Hornets franchise, you know, what I mean? Carolina's favorite, son. And it'll probably be there for the next twenty years. But you know, it's one bed draft pick after another. No, I get it. I mean aside from Kimball Walker they have not to particularly. Well that's fail. I can't I can't sit here and tell you to Michael join a good executive. He's not right. And what else you got dollar? Second thing was the Anki after the playoffs last year. What did we need starting pitching? What did we do in the off season? We re signed have and went out and got axed. But that was it. I mean, so what did they think was going to happen this year? So let me ask you question. What pitcher on open market did you want? All right, Charles. I was down in Tampa..

"For Greg bird. Well, says new it's been coming like an annual tradition where Greg bird has the late spring training injury that the rails the first two to two and a half months of the year. And I gotta admit when it got word that he was appointed Thursday spring training game. I expected the worst. Now, the Yankees telling you all is good. But you know, what I'll know all is good with Greg bird when he's actually on the field produced in for their. I'd say close to a full season. We're not be nice, but said to Manhattan, Richard is up next ever. JJ? What I like to know if despite a betting books had dish when that New Mexico state guy went to the line seventy eight percent foul shoot at three shots. What would he odds that? He would hate only one added a tree. To make a figuring. I would say, and I don't know what the live line was that. One hundred percent. He's a seventy eight percent shooting. So one out of three maybe five percent say. I was going to say eight to one. Extent thinking man's back. That's a great bit, Richard. It just goes to show you at the end of these games. You always have to take into account the human element. Account and the college kids Murray state or woolford who do you think has a better chance of making it? I think wolf it. And I'll tell you why just by reasoning why should be contract. She beat Kentucky now handily EP Seton Hall. So why wouldn't you like wolford's chances against Kentucky? Plus, they're missing one idiot top guys. That's why Richard I would favor Wofford over Murray state because PJ Washington may not play in this damn and most likely will not playing this escape. Wofford has the ability to shoot the three on a food side. You have John Moran who's going up against an elite level defensive team of forest state. And I think he's going to have four more trouble, China, get a cook in against the Seminoles. Then he did Thursday here against white cat, apples and oranges. Let's say the Middletown Brad. He's up next. Brad. Hey, brian. What's up pal? Yeah. I'm. As the first Japanese player if I'm not mistaken. My mind is that when the Yankees got each row from Seattle. They were actually in Seattle. Dow. I remember it. And you'd think about Brad each euro that first year with the Yankees that I know twenty thirteen twenty fourteen he kind of fizzled down started, look I can aging ballplayer. But I'm the Yankees editing for the stretch. And he was terrific that twenty twelve season you go back to the playoffs that year each year was hitting the top of the order each year was in the middle of everything. Eacho hit a couple of home runs in that postseason run the Yankees beaten, the Orioles and was the Tigers the American League championship series. And I like county gave you a glimpse for what he wants was is a player. Now, you never really saw that fully with the Yankees. I mean, you go back to each with the Mariners going VP two batting titles guy for the first ten years of his career was ten time. All star. You didn't get that sort of player. But you saw how professional he can be. Career. Hats off to a great nature L and five years from now is the first ballot hall family. Let's head to New Jersey. Chuck up next these Fowler itself. Check JJ good morning. It happens. Then it deserves to win check defense and the two three was not good enough. And I miss Frank. Our what are you going to do? They're going to switch it up. I wanted to piggyback on that Tommy Di Tom Izzo. He was speaking about they call technical Bobby early. Oh day too. It's getting ridiculous. Now, listen, we have seen Hurley brothers who I love, and I know Danny well known from his days at Wagner. On this show. A couple of times I've got to be fair though, Chuck it's one thing when we're talking about a coach yelling at a player out of a problem with that Bobby Knight used to chase on. Let's not compare every coach to the behavior of Bob Knight as great as Bob. Knight was in his prime had some. Actions and behavior patterns that were unacceptable. The way he treated players was abusive and unacceptable. Tom Izzo pointing at a player is dramatically different than Bob night, basically, choking somebody out so apples and oranges poise. But I gotta say this about Bob Hurley, especially Bob, I love the passionate the fiery coach from me any day of the week. Bobby does gotta calm down on the solid. I mean, he's teed up basically every other game. I mean, that's pro you're planning the NC double A tournament. I mean, sometimes you gotta take a chill pill. I know that's very tough for somebody like me to say, I'm not coaching in college team. It's very easy for me to watch the game and yell at the officials and be rate occurs out the officials when I'm sitting on my couch. I can do that when you're a coach you're playing a hotly contested game. Like, for example, the plan today that's going to be game that comes down to the wire. Do you wanna be letting your emotions get the best of you where you costing your team two points knows could be the difference in again. I'm surprised Bobby has not heard from his flight director, basically, tell them to you know, lax. Because he gets crazy in these games. It's crazy. I love it. One personally. But man. Calm down. The Brooklyn Stewart up next on a foul stuff. Still mourning double James Stewart was shacking taking them salary back you searches loss. Nations to all the fame. Earn too. I read the fame pitcher. Right before he retired. What they? I was a superfan. Seventy four. People I ever met. Was cursed. Close service. I shook his hand. He was so nice to twelve to one before marriage. And the fact that he has dementia is very saddening. This is any question Stuart. It's sickening. And what bothers you is that the Mets didn't do something to honor Tom Seaver as far as that ballpark a long long time ago, but in the Mets defense to finally right or wrong to finally getting their right to little too late. According to some yes. I'm glad the Mets finally getting a right? So I'll give him credit for that. Let's say Aberdeen New Jersey, Sal Jones's, Sal, you're on the fan. Hey, JJ longtime no speak. Appreciate a salary. Got. Yeah. Yeah. Just piggybacking on what? And you said. It is sad that you know, it took them all this time to name the street after the statue. I mean when you think of a JJ how many homegrown psychotic players fab. Few and far between. I mean, they were right now south David Wright had a great career. But if you compare David Reich to like another player in another franchise he'd be very good player. But if you will get the mid statistics, he's basically a top every single one of them. Now. I know the injuries come into play in that hurt. David Wright, a great deal. But yes, you have a hard time finding homegrown met that has dominated for that franchise from start to finish. And I know Seaver got traded which was ill advised, which was a monumental mistake. Is something met franchise. Never should it done. But as far as honoring him at that ballpark. It's long Bill. So I'm glad with the street and the ballpark. It's something they should have been over. Well before it twenty nineteen season fun show. Despite the fact, I'm not in the best mood sometimes get to come in. And be a pro. That's what we try to do. My. Thanks to Eddie are Zuma. The other side, you guys outstanding always calls Saturday hanging out watch NC double A tournament five to seven thirty. We'll be top golfing Edison chin. So stop by hit a few gull shots.

"So we'll see how it plays out. It's only a few days in a spring training. And maybe Luke void will beat him here to meet him in the final four last year. Maybe you'll beat him in March as well, baby. The problem is I think the Yankees are for Greg bird for two reasons. Lefty. Read the biggest one I mean, they got no lefty power in the lineup at all really Hicks. When he's, you know baton, well, that's it it Hickson Gardner plays with a little bit of. No. So a lefty and be they just like them. He's been there prospect for four or five years, they viewed him a higher level than Aaron judge. And better defense still brought that up and that's a fair point though. Can I say this about Luke valley words are just words? Luke Voight was asked about his goals for this year. This guy either goes to a PR firm or knows exactly what to say. Here is goals now selfishly he'd probably be like I gonna hit forty home runs. He says I want to win a World Series. And I want to win a gold glove. I mean, come on he's talking about winning a gold glove, which means he's working really hard on his defense. And who knows maybe he's significantly was a year ago. Joe and freehold. Hey, Joe, Joe. Hey, guys, just gonna love your show. Thanks, joe. I was just curious with this off season and the Yankee contract extension. What you guys would you as a possible extension for a guy in Aaron judge Gary Sanchez, what you think the Yankees would wanna give them for be willing to give them. Sanchez is tough because he was so bad last year. I don't think Gary would want her. Yeah. It was bad. He was hurt. He's coming off an injury. So you've got three years after this of Aaron judge. So you've got four years of control, basically, and in arbitration will start to make money, and it's it's basically just based on a formula. So ally injury issues last year too, not worried. No not. But I'd be dead though. Yeah. I think you go five years maybe six years because you want to buy out to free agent years and try to get him out eleven million dollars a year. And if that sounds lo look at what the Diamondbacks did with Paul Goldschmidt years ago and the Astros did years ago, not this one with Jose altuve, you can buy these guys out early because you're giving them more money than they would have earned an arbitration. I don't know what both sides are thinking though, I think it's another year before they really start talking to judge. I don't I don't think that's going to happen now and Sanchez I think he's gonna wanna go out there and prove yourself improving could perform here. It's such a terrible. Terrible. You Mike and Norwalk, Mike. Hey, guys. Good to talk to you. Again. What's up, my soul? Wanna bring a couple of things. I agree with a lot of the other callers. I think Hicks the Hicks contract is a great value. I mean, first of all it makes him feel comfortable with the guy who hasn't totally proven himself yet. So you know, he knows that he's not playing for a contract. So you can kind of get the real stats out of him. Plus like what's ten million dollars like five years from now? What is that gonna mean, you know, guys are making thirty million maybe forty million at some point or another. And also the other thing I want to bring up is Evan with your baseball card collection. I think what you should do. I don't know how much you have. We should definitely hold onto your Mets players. I think it's a great way to teach your young son. You know, the bright colorful, there's little soundbite. That's a great way to hit. Mike. That's a good way to look at it. Right. Only likes playing with cars maybe next year. I like to play with baseball cards. I'll show him a Tim tougher card and he'll get all pumped up. Jeff mcknight. I saw a little bit of highlights yesterday with Tibo T-ball not making the play on that dive. Can we call? I mean, you know, catch the ball. Yeah. And then he did get robbed. Wherever that guy was a centerfield for Houston with a flat out, you know, body extension dives great catchy alley. The problem with Tibo Tibo. I'm going to try to be serious like analyze them. As a baseball player is that even if he's becoming a good hitter. He can't do anything else. Can't play defense. I could just tell by that one play. So he has no idea what he's doing in the outfield to me. I'm surprised at trying to Dino. He's trying to play first base to be honest. I see him Moore's at first baseman is true because he's a lefty. And I see him more in that regard. Maybe it's just a tougher its first base a tough position. We we minimize it. So maybe they looked at him. And they said, no, no, he's got a better shot of being an outfielder. I remember watching Dion Sanders play baseball. And he's a tremendous athlete. Well, you couldn't he couldn't. He couldn't feed. It was all about speed was all about was all about it was all about glitz and speed. Oh, yeah. I remember Jackson was a different store. Bo. Jackson Jackson did not play football. Which ended you know, all this careers with the hip. Yeah. God knows how good a baseball player. He would have been. Yeah. He was legit. Yes. I remember watching the game. I was there and every time it'd be a fly ball to left field or anything to left field. We were joke. Dion. And he was a disastrous. All of it was all about speed theon made the right move sticking the plane corner in the NFL. Yes, that's where he should have been and and not tackling. And what she never did never did business decision business. Brian and east Hanover. How are you Brian? Hey, guys. Good good there. You back. Joe having much you mentioned in that game the down in Charlotte. I mean heck of the game. Obviously Russel's birthday Ruko on the call really was exciting. I'm curious what you wear I'm enjoying the season about talking about the free agency here. But I know you've met you did about the more. We see Russel play. I think the fans are real realizing Kyrie isn't the play this off. No, you think there's any chance dean, and I'm an opinion that with the weight Dennis are Nick stance talk themselves into that tour. They gonna try to spin it like if they don't win. They got their whole Russell quote unquote in Dennis Smith. Dennis Smith right now is not at the level. Terrific game last night. He's not at the level that the Angelo's at at this point. No, no, not even close at this point. I think he's misreading knick fans and confirmed because you're a knick fan kyri is the second say to Durant Kyrie I was on with Jodi from Florida on Thursday, and we'll use asked him about look if Kyrie's their number one free agent that they signed to a max contract. That's not good enough. I don't want that you could sign Kyrie. But he's got to be the second fiddle to Kevin Durant. And I think that's why Leonard dot co. I let us come in here. If he's the second guy to Durant. That's great. If he's the number one free agent they signed to a max deal. No, no. I think you're looking at Durant bringing a guy guy we were suing the guys Kyrie Irving if that guy's Kemba Walker or of that guys Klay ta whoever is great. I got Kevin Durant. Right. I don't think this free agency for knick fans is about Kyrie is now definitely not now. And I like Dennis Smith. I think that is. Ms he's I think he's going to be a real good player. And by the way, if you got Kevin Durant, and Kyrie Irving Dennis Smith can be here, you can have multiple cards. It's actually a good thing. Of course to have. Of course, Ernie. And I got on Dolf because we got on seriously. I mean, how could you possibly get? I'll tell you why. And you're the decider on. All right. We thought inside you decide because it does we said dove. He can't tax Joe on his vacation about coming on the air. Okay. If Joe wants to come on the air at you've done your more. Everybody course, you're welcome. Right. And so both of us said delve. It's a big mistake. We analyze this text message. Okay. And both of us gave dove Ernie Yeldham. I yell at dove is just I would have done that those are Hansie with these vacations because you know, he texted me when I'm on vacation. And I love you. I love you. He takes me Joel with the nets today. And I'm like, that's that's great. I mean. I'm in Florida on the beach. I love I love you pro. Right. I understand. I honestly, I I have to say I did not really have any issues. Okay. I know issue would text me dot com and said Jodi wanted me to come on. I really didn't have a problem with it being protected. No. I know I appreciate that. I picked the day when I was not playing golf, of course, which was Thursday. Hanging out at the pool that day. And so I I really did not have any so dove. You didn't mess up and ask them to come money just told Jodi once a month, that's an implication. It's the same the same the same thing that it kind of is. I don't I honestly I had no issue with that though. There were big cases either Suzy vacates that passed when I got like a messages from like sales people that I needed me to do a spot came. That's a different story. You're talking about why? Spot. So that's that's a number of years ago. But now the dove situation, I did not have any issue dove. You're you're innocent or guilt. So the bottom line is low part of by telling you that shows open with the nets. No, I wasn't bothered at all. I was laughing about how such a appreciated. I didn't appreciate it. I I know obviously why he opened with it was one hell of a game. Yeah. The triple triple overtime against Cleveland. Oh my God. Damn which was a game to educate me how to have before. Westwood not lose that game. What's that game to the bulls earlier in the week at home and all the bulls are playing a lot of different team playing much? No doubt about it. But I mean that's a game. You had to win. They lost badly at home. The the and I watched a lot of that game. It didn't seem like they were interested to be very honest. And again and the Cleveland game. I mean, wow, they're gonna lose Cleveland and the win that game the way they did was just down three. You got the marae Carol hitting a buzzer beater Kennedy. The third overtime the Angelo part of why the Angelo is becoming a star. He does nothing all night has an off night and just dominates the third overtime to win. And let them know a victory to wins were tough to enjoy because I felt about both of them as if they had to win. It wasn't like agree with you damn, right? They won that game. It's much more enjoyable when you win a game that you don't expect to win any of that eight-game road trip coming up seven game road trip, and they would a crazy game..

"So we'll leave it at that. What else the fan right here in New York City and over the next four hours or so, and I was sitting there Sunday night, the lovely lady and her dad are off to Las Vegas. God bless them. They will be there for a couple of days. I wish I was joining them. But in the meantime, I'm talking to you guys. So what was I doing on Sunday night meal on what everybody else is watching the Academy Awards. Then my first off before we get to the Yankees. And at first base situation and medicine at first base situation. Those anybody honestly does anybody have it better than Alex Rodriguez as I'm sitting there watching the Oscars minding my own business in by Sunday dinner. I see Alex Rodriguez standing next to jaylo. He's in a white tuxedo. He's got the black bowtie. He's got the Blake eating grin on his face said. I'll Hollywood baby I'm at the Grammys baby. You dig about career comebacks. It's going to be very difficult to find one better than Rigas. You think about what he's doing media wise, you think about the phonies, aval wood, Jennifer, Lopez all great things things. Don't wanna seems like day after day after day. I mean, I follow me on Instagram. You guys follow me on Instagram? I'm jealous every single day. I go to air odds page. I'm saying man must be nice, man. This guy's living it up. So. On a day where you know, lady Gaga and Raby Malik in the green book could be an honored who's sitting there in the third row, laughing it up single. We are the champions. So that's my first round of to start this shell now on a much more serious. Now, let's get down to business. We spent a good portion of Sunday talking about Greg bird talking about the hype train that was your expectations of what they were a couple of years ago after spring training night. Exactly living up to that. Dan after the great postseason in two thousand seventeen great bird, you thinking in two thousand eighteen could it be right in the middle of judge in Sanchez and Stanton is going to be the left the anchor within this Lanta as we know that did not happen. So Greg bird needed to get off to a fast start here in spring training. Then you look at Sunday. Sunday. You have a player that was a fan favourite a season ago. You have a player that a lot of people, including yours. Truly want to believe is for real. I want to believe that Luke. Void all of a sudden has found something here. I want to believe that the Yankee advance stats people was smart enough to recognize something down in the minor leagues for the Saint Louis cardinals. Take a guy by them all and maximize. What you getting Dan and day out? Luke void for two months. I think a lot of Yankee fans may be blue side of this. They shouldn't boy was instrumental over the final two months of the year. Bombing home runs through centerfield big heads Hayden in the middle of the order. And I think I had the same question that many of you are going to have going into spring training going into twenty nine thousand is Luke void for real. Is Luke void the real deal is Luke void guy. That's Shane Spencer. Kevin Maas portal. Or is this guy that can be a legitimate big league. First baseman well in his first spring training in after what Greg bird did on Saturday. Couple hits Voight dozen one better. Voight, mash, it a home run. Flexed in the power. Drive and runs and giving you the sort of quotes after the game that I've got to be honest, you want here talking about one of the World Series talking about winning gold glove. Even always is so poor defensive first baseman. Talking about putting that timing. Talking about winning job. Not focused on the people who are chanting. His then. Mentioning the fact that he knows the data's are out there. He should because when you've only done it for two months in the big leagues. You know, what to fair take the half? It's totally fair fury Yankee fan right now saying, you know, what JJ I four. Everything I know about Washington baseball cannot honestly look at the final two months and tell you that's for real for a career journeyman minor leaguer. I get that. But I want to believe that look void Israel, and as far as this first space cab petition is concerned. I think the fan possession. I think what a majority of the Yankee fans gonna want here despite great birds lefty swing despite what people within the organization may feel about to go. They're gonna remember those final two months last year. They're gonna remember Luke voice. Big double a triple in the wildcard Game Boy training him pumping up the crowd. Biceps popping out of his shirt. And has sort of incredible hulk lodge it alive type mentality. If indeed he's caused ripper draft spring training. And I think he's gotta be first baseman. I do. And I think it's the ultimate kick in the butt for great bird to me. If indeed this first base computation is 'cause and it very well could be why Greg bird is the king of spring Channing. We saw that couple years ago. I told you guys yesterday I am not going to be throwing a parade over great bird hidden eight or nine home runs draft this spring. We've been there we've done at about per producing came in and came out any regular season staying on the field throughout the regular season. That's what he needs to show. You not just hit in dopey spring training games. But football to these guys their performance will determine as it should who's gonna win this job. I do believe the AKIs. I do when they tell you that going into spring training. It will be an open competition. So if it's close who gets the not the guy who's been in the system. The guy that the Yankees raven. A couple of years ago is their best hitter in the system. Great bird. Over the Yankees side with the revelation of last season. Pointer who came out of nowhere mash the tunnel. Home runs actually put up better numbers down the stretch. Then Manny Machado think about that for a minute. Lugovoi coming to the Yankees. Manny Machado going to the dodgers who have better numbers. You took a blind eye test. You probably would have said I won numbers born to Machado, the others. Born avoid no, no votes better. I basically because von the Yankees by mentality would be what I'm going to ride the wave here. And I don't know if it's for another three or four weeks. I don't know if it's two months, but I wanna see if August in September of last year can be duplicated starts and with bird. I wanna give him that additional motivation and the AKIs can maybe try to sell you, whatever the hell they want to sell you as far as putting together this roster. I'm telling you this right now. Good feel the loser of the first base competition. Between Bernie, I think the loser that competition is going to be done in a model weeks. 'cause just think about how they're going about. Put together. Yankees have given you every indication. They're going to take thirteen pitchers. I don't particularly like it. But that kind of wear baseball's going, and especially when you play in the American League where you got a majority guys who are playing day after day after day. So I would expect the Chan opening date thirteen pages. So if they're going to do that. You got three bench spots. Back of catcher Austin remind is going to be one whoever's now playing between Troy tool whiskey, and may you is going to be too. You wanna tell me they don't need to carry a backup outfielder because John Carlos Stanton. Has the ability to Phil that's fine. So you have judge Hex garner stead no problems there. But then you'll get at their final bench bond to style. Wade who play everywhere he's got speed not much of a hitter. Even though we had a very hot start here who's first spring training game. But we know way at least in the big leagues has had could Frazier could freeze you're going to show you enough now over the next five to six weeks to warrant being a guy that's playing on the Yankee opening day roster. My sense is gonna want to infringe to get as many at bats as possible. And that's down in a minor leagues. I'll stay on not go star break garner is everyday left fielder. And I think it's some point in time that will happen. If corners hitting I just don't take a day. So is it weighed for his versatility is the Frazier to be the righty Pattni outfield. Or is it the loser of this? First base cow tissue, gut tells me loser. The first base competition is down screen. So these games day after day that can be tedious that can be tiresome. Once you get through the first three or four days of spring training. Trust me. I've already seen two days of spring training. And it's like jeeze going to get the opening day could get to a point where these games are actually going to count for real. But they matter for Lou void and a matter for Greg bird. Coin flip the way. I see it. Thinking about who your first base is going to be would not be shocked either way. Gut tells me Lugovoi continues to match the way that he did last year. They're gonna add that dangling carrot a motivation in front of great bird one more time and have him start. The Scranton in fact, if it's close that's what I want to see happen. Even though the Yankees could use some left to power, even though I know they're still pretty high on great bird. That's the guy you want to motivate. There are certain guys where you get that sense. They need that additional kick in the ass. Birds for better or worse. Fair on fair. Maybe it's injuries on the performance. Whatever may be the results in a piglet uniform aside from the postseason at twenty seventeen and his first two months coming up twenty fifteen they haven't been out. Megan. That's what I base should be about the only real open competition. You have in Yankee camp first base bird. Void it who wants it. Why? Now, it's minus one twenty. Plus, andrea. If I would have said a Vegas outs. Who am I making the slightest favorites revelation from last year void it's to eighteen here on this Monday morning. It's JJ after dark. John jastremski.

"It's gonna come down to who has who has the better spring. Because when I looked at the Yankee lineup if I'm the Yankees, I would want Greg bird to somehow emerged here because just the lefty bat and the glove better. We'll have and the lefty bat I would want that bat to balance the lineup a little bit better. And with all the righty power. And all the Radi bats in that Yankee lineup think I would want to see bird have an exceptional spring and emerge. And so if I'm the Yankees, that's what I would want to have happen. What do I think will happen Lukman? Wait was the revelation last year. And I think he's a guy who just was waiting for an opportunity even at his age. I don't think we'll find out if he's a fluke. I don't think he is. So if I'm giving you a prediction my prediction is going to win that job. But if I were the Yankees, I would want the balance of of bird to to win that that would be my my preference. If if I were the. And as the Mets the other question I asked degrom and that contract distraction or not. There's just something about Jacob dioramas interviewed during the game on us. And why today pitched his first game of spring training pitch? The first inning didn't really matter not much to see their gave up a run in that inning got hit a little bit. But it was had the velocity cranked up to about ninety six ninety seven which Mickey Callaway after the game was saying made him nervous makes him nervous guys. Then studs are already throwing with such velocity. So early in the season. But there's something about when you when you see and listen to some of these Jacob degrom interviews that I think the club is really really endanger of alienating their best player, and they've already waited way too long with this guy. They should have signed a contract with him a year ago when they didn't have to pay top of the market Cy Cy Young value. But if I were them, I would get a deal done right now. I think they look ridiculous when the team's general managers, the former agent and announced last summer that the Mets should extend this guy or trade. Him. And now you're sitting position to do it. And you're not doing anything. I don't think you can really go too far into the year without doing a deal. So eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six plenty to do four hours to do it time for an update with.

Did you know? Okay. Philadelphia's dangerous. Yes, they are very very good offensively. Could they get their defense in order in a playoff series? Couldn't Butler Embiid and Simmons caused somebody fits well. They're like a team like Milwaukee a Toronto ab- Austin. Yeah, they their defense. The biggest problem. They have their defense is for whatever reason at the end of games in the fourth quarter. They have one of the worst defenses in the league and throughout the rest of the game, you know, average, but you know, in the playoffs, you got a defend. Oh, no for sure I do think they have the guys that can defend if you have a nucleus of Jimmy Butler, Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid. You should be a lot better on defense. I think a lot of that. And I heard you and Michael talking about it in on game day before you guys tipped off. And Michael kind of alluded to the fact that it might be just desire at this point. Because they have the elements of guys that can play defense. It doesn't make any. Sense. How do you feel about people that you follow who?.

"And if you have a lecture Google just say play WFAN and you'll be locked in to the fan the playmaker. Michael irvin. Will join us in fifteen minutes in his weekly spot will preview the two games coming up on Sunday championships, Sunday, we're down to our final three real NFL games this season. I'm not including the Pro Bowl my apologies to games and obviously the Super Bowl. So it's almost over and then three games left. That's it. That's it. We don't count the Pro Bowl. No candidate. They try to push the Pro Bowl on you. But there's the Pro Bowl credit. It's still gets a rating people still I guess not me. Watching weekend is Torrey Pines. But I'll be watching golf that. Well, you know, I'll be watching that weekend. It of course is the weekend of the Royal rose at Royal rumble hats, right? I see is in the Bronx high art, our you fellas high art. Yup. Did you guys talk about? Oh, that's right. So it on February fourth. He will turn sixty is going to be six. I guess so. Yeah, I guess that's sounds right. Yeah. There was rookie wide eighty one. So yeah. Born February nineteenth. Wow. I'm one year older today. So I'm already sick. I'm five years old and in both the same. I know today's the anniversary of a very special moment in history. Earning at your lead stadium. Playoff game. The Bart Scott. If you will years ago that was a great great moment. That was great. Let's go to Mike in is that supposed to be Baone? I assume hey, Mike, Mike, our you. Yeah. Yeah. Talking about right bird. I is put him out to pasture. He's only twenty six had one bad year. Well, he's never really had a good year. Yeah. He shows like lots of promise, he's still, you know. No. He could have worked his tail off over this off season and come out and hit thirty forty home runs. Okay. I mean, I wouldn't give up on them yet. But the big thing would he's he's always hurt. Well, yeah, you're right Joe. And there's a big difference between not being able to rely on a guy right and burying them. Now, we're not burying him. But last year when Greg bird played half a season he was really bad the year before that when he came back after his injury. And before the injury really before the injury. It wasn't very good. Now, he did hit in the postseason had a big home run against Andrew Miller that should not be taken away. And he missed all of two thousand sixteen. So really the only successful major league run that Greg bird has had over any extended period of time was two thousand fifteen that was so long ago. Matt Harvey was capable back. Then that's how long ago it was. So it's not fair in one breath to say come on. Greg birds had one bad year. He's never really had a good year. And I think that the Yankees should feel this way they've loved Greg bird that he's going to get a shot. And I think Joe he's actually even going to get more of a shot because he's a left handed bat, we just talked about God knows they need that they need that. So he'll get a shot. But it's also. I wouldn't give up on them yet. I wouldn't say that. But we haven't we just said you can't rely on. No, he's not reliable, which is a very fair statement. Yeah. You know, he'll go to spring training and him in Luke void. We'll get a shot. And I think Greg birds almost going to get the edge. Because of the fact he's a left-hander, but it's also not fair to say he's at one bad year. I mean, he wasn't good last year. He wasn't very good in seventeen till the end which counts because he did hit that big home run against Andrew Miller in the postseason was a big part of that team. But he missed all of two thousand sixteen. So there just isn't there isn't a big track record for Greg bird. The one thing. I disagree with Greg bird about is. He said last year, he's gonna get five thousand more opportunities. I don't think that's going to have. Yeah. I don't think five thousand realistic. Maybe too high of a number. Yes. Jim in Jersey City. Jim, how are you? Hey, guys. How are you? Good first time caller and just wanted to say that yesterday. Great job. I think that, you know, most of people calling into I calling in and they're supposed to some other shows. They sometimes feel like spite it, and you know, it's it's nice that you guys do the job. We do the best. We appreciate it. So just wanted to a Mets jets. I understand. I just want to touch base on a couple of those tunes. And maybe you guys can continue with some fun discussion. Sure. So the the first card with the coaches just in terms of which are stored in analogy, it's sort of Barry trucks. And so like, they'll check. So I just think that. Yeah. Just goes not. There was really happy. I just am amazed at how much coach can turn around and incredible pretty much with the talent. In fact, you could argue getting ready to marriage and. I mean that coaching is so it's so important. And when you look at the Mets, you know when when you look at this guy coming in case for the jets. I just you know, it always comes to coaching. I think you know, look with Barry Trump's can do as well. I think. Every year with the players. And we've talked about this. And let's not minimize is tremendous. Let's not minimize Lula Morello being there too. You know, and the end the upgrading Jurgen ization with him running the show. I saw that's that's also a big part of it. But so yeah. Yeah. No, absolutely. I think so far we've seen more from berry tragically because we see a similar roster to a year ago, but without Taveras without John Taveras that has gone from dead last in goals allowed to number one three points out of out of I in in the division. Yeah. They've got fifty six points fifteen. They one is the number. They've played really really well. And so we've seen that difference from Trump's. But one thing about Barry trots before last year is I think he was always a good head coach he was with Nashville for a million years, obviously with Washington until last year. He had won the big one. Right. So I think the knock on trot site was. Yeah. Really good coach. When's he gonna win at all? What you did last year? He did. But yeah, I mean coaching is very important. It varies in importance based on the sport. I think. Yeah. But we've certainly seen right here in this town the impact that Barry trots has made on this roster for the New York Islanders, and they look like a playoff team right now. Especially the way they've played lately. We talk about it to baseball to meet a manager is all the four sports. That's the least importance is a manager in baseball to me especially in today's game. Where so much of these managers are really just. Whatever you want to use it. They're just puppets. If you will if that's the right word. I don't that's the right word. Yeah. Yeah. General manager. Yeah. So you know, so I I would throw baseball added at the last. I think the NBA coaching is a lot more. I would agree in baseball manager tad in Waterbury tad. Our you guys going on what's up? You're not even gonna make an offer not even an offer from the Chato or I read even Pat Patrick corden, not even an all you're going to bring a man you're going to have dinner with them. Corbin stein. The longevity saying they didn't make an all they did offer. What is this telling me when white trout is a free agent. If he doesn't find an extension, you think him and his agent. I'm going to say, we know what screw the Yankees because they're not even spend the money and making off they're not they're not they're not gonna do that. They're going to meet with the Yankees and try to offer. What I don't understand about manning is why would you have lunch with him to not make an offer to me? If you're interested in the player make an offer bottom line is can how to me what it seems like is don't care. It ain't the same way as George Steinbrenner their father the tat tat if they let me defend them with this. All right. I understand that this off season hasn't been like I said, I think it's been a blow off season they're not going after Manny Machado, very hard. They haven't made an offer Bryce Harper a year ago not that long ago not five years ago not ten year ago. What did they do they treated for Giancarlo Stanton? Contract. So in the context of this off season. I think it's fair to say, hey, you mean with Manny Machado, white I'll make an offer or it's fair to say, hey, who's the leftfielder? I think it's fair to criticize the off season. But it's tough to say they're not committed to spending a year ago. They treat the first Carlos contract. Look, look, look baseball. I it's not that easy to win the World Series anymore. I mean, let's be honest. You know, you gotta go through if you're the wildcard team. You gotta go through basically four rounds of playoffs to win a championship. It's not that easy. The best team doesn't always win last year. They did last year the best team wants your Red Sox investing more, but to say DNR committed to win and they want one hundred games last year. Okay. They lost to the best team in baseball. They want and whatever they won the year before before they see you. I bet on. There was something an idea. When you over was eighty three one eighty two games here, and they want they went to game seven championship series loss to the eventual world champions in Houston to say that they're not committed to winning to me is ridiculous. You know was the last time Yankees had a winning winning losing season. You gotta go back to what stump Merrill, and to the point of being aggressive with guys. They just traded for Carlos. What I wonder about? And I don't know the answer because maybe there's a negotiation tactic. I don't understand. I don't know. Why would you meet with a guy and not give an offer? Even if you don't know. If I'm meeting with Manny Machado, and I know, hey, I'm not offering him three hundred million dollars. I'm not I would still say, hey, look, we like you. We love you to be here. Because of where we are because we have so much young talent that you're gonna get to play with. We're not able to offer you this kind of money because eventually have to pay all our guys. But here's a seven year offer for whatever it is. Here's your offer. We know it's not as high as Philly. We get it. We understand if you're going to go there, we respect you. But here's that offer. Now think about it. Why not make understand the idea of making possible? There was something when they had when they had them at the dinner and all that they didn't like about the last different. I mean is that I don't know. I mean, I mean, I guess that's possible. That's very possible. That's completely different. If you want, and that's that's right. Who knows we don't know that. But if you do want them maybe when the Mets met with race, but when he left and the whole thing was they never made an offer. I don't understand that either..

"Hundred K only game Greg bird a fucking five thousand dollars. Yeah. Use that money somewhere. Pathetic, pathetic aggression. You hit two hundred we're going to double your pet. What? Yeah. I referring to go foreign to me like how arbitrary action works. It's get it. All here's what I do. Hey, greg. How much you want you want money? Like, I don't care how much you just want actual money. No. You're not worth money. Co fuck yourself and your free agent. I just cut you. That's what happens to Greg bird. You're not worth an ounce of dollars. If you make sense worth anything. I wouldn't one sets one set more than when you be last year one player million dollars. Are you fucking kidding? This is the most aggravating off season. I think I've ever been a part of. For sure like not even know people are going to like if you look at it. Here's what they've done. Got. James Paxton, good job resigned Britain. Right. You could be good. But when you know what's out there, and the fact that the way they've handled it like the Arab like a month or two ago when Brian Cashman, they asked him about Horford the winter meetings. Seems like I'm surprised you guys. They're still asking me about that. Like, we have after the arrogancy answered that with Bryce Harper is, you know, a generational talent. He's the face of baseball is one of the big like, he's not the best player baseball. But he's the biggest superstar baseball has combined altogether. Household name, basically since he was sixteen years old. And you're the New York Yankees. Like, of course, you're going to ask about him. Of course, you're going to ask about him. And we're gonna look back and be like keys scuffed at the idea of of signing. Baseball's biggest superstar. That's the Enke's are at where you ask them. Are you gonna sign like baseball's biggest superstar and they scoff? You look. You're an idiot for asking that question. That's we're out with the mayor keys fucking, George. I was tortured back me. I would be so fired grad life, there's a possibly like he would traded judge in Sanchez and Severino. But like, yeah. But he would have you wanna let this happen. No. And people are I wanna say this very loud and clear. Jeeter and Bernie Passat Mary like your time. So we're I feel Gary would be for sure, I don't think it would delegation. Yeah. Probably I do I wanna say this loud and clear. That people like complain about the white nights out there. Like, oh, Yankees, Twitter's the worst, and I feel I could get roped into that. Because I say, what's on my mind, and I really don't care, but this team has absolutely improved last year. You had some guiding sunning assuming he's gone swimming. They do actually treat him January. We have some time sunny grave in the rotation year. He gone and doing hormone was pretty much in the rotation. Once Montgomery went down. He's he's not starting anymore. You upgraded that would Paxton in half to two very solid guys. Paxton with the ability to be if he stays healthy awesome rotation improved really need to do that. They did it. Good job. Especially in spend a ton of money doing that either in your Bolton you brought Britain back. I do that. I think they're going to bring back on of. They're gonna bring that to sign out of you know, that would be huge. That's great bullpen, right? They're awesome bullpen, and obviously LeMay who plays into the whole contacting great too low. Shirk cheap. Why not do it? Great. But it it's a good off-season. It's is good because they've improved and he's one hundred games improve team that just one hundred game sounds pretty good to me and your banking on Gary not being absolutely brainless of the plate. And you know, having a better year. Giancarlo Saint thinks this recipe one hundred five games or more for sure. But when the Red Sox your rival that the note, the upper management despises him wants to beat and they hate all this shit in the media especial the colts came last year when you when they have won three straight division championships. Hundred games less your franchise record and a World Series and of the ploughs here a into one at your stadium..
