I don't know what he's like as a person he might be a really great person but like he's you know he's not letting the world on fire but like he has three five six. Era in a fifth. That's not much higher than that and just not strike really anyone out. But he doesn't really give a poem runs either and he's eating innings for the mariners which was kind of the idea. But i don't know that they necessarily expected them to go as these have so chris flexing on our list. Too good one. Yeah i got the idea to do the because as listening to the podcast yesterday. With joe nancy and make sure and they were talking about the white sox and they were listing off white sox who've had great seasons the fourth name that they listed was adam angle and wait. Adam ankle really. You're listening him that early but no adam engle has really good. I mean only thirty. Three games one hundred twenty one time princes. But he's hit really well after hitting quite well last year in small simple to. That's a good example of like. Oh ankle yeah. Kind of overshadowed. I had not even realized that we robert has been as good as he has came back. I mean he has been unbelievable. He's hitting three thirty three seventy five twenty eight yup so clearly that entry to not take any kind of told out and he still like swinging at everything but weirdly also making contact more regardless.

He's thirty seven years old and he did not hit at all last year. And he resigned with the astra's really early just didn't even test the market and can have imagined that the market would have been all that strong but he's having a career year offensively. He's hidden three twelve him on basing three eighty-three with some public. He has been phenomenal and he is walking almost as much as he strikes out. So he's been a great component of that.

And i guess the last guy i had was eduardo rodriguez with the red sox who has like a five plus the ira so would not be an obvious choice. But his peripherals are really good like his ship and everything is is old. Eduardo rodriguez so. I did want to acknowledge that. He is still doing some things. It's just happened.

It's great when the high rollers come in yup and they're trying to show off for whatever whatever girl who's like ridiculously overdressed like she's wearing a formal gown at a boxing match. Yup and then he. The guy just goes all by beers for the whole row. And the guy the guy's looking because i can't carry that many. You're they're just trying to show off but that's another place where everybody just the guys like picking up the tab for the whole row. I always i always loved that about high rollers in vegas. Hey what did you think of This mike richards guy getting the jeopardy job. Sounds like he's going to get the jeopardy. I don't think he's gonna get it. You don't think so why. I'm wondering about how much i can say here. I don't i don't either google just just go say that yes. Yeah there's trouble coming. I think i thought lavar burton did a really good job. I thought my our job. Yeah i think either. One of them would be great mean. Mike richards has been. I actually worked with mike. Full disclosure worked with mike at reels channel and we hosted daily entertainment show together. And he's i mean. I i don't know what the stuff is in the background but he was always a great guy with with me. I always had fun working with them. Anyways the executive producer prices right then went to jeopardy stepping into the job. I somebody called yesterday and said the condition when he went from prices. Right to jeopardy. The deal was. I'll come to work for jeopardy as long as i replace alex. Well that would be smart but the accusations that are out there against him in twenty twenty one will probably scuttled that. So we're maybe not. Maybe he'll get you. Don't you know it's of like anybody can be accused of anything. So i want everybody to have due process right so you know. It's one of those deals are talking to lindsay today and lindsay. I'm doing everything out of order. Lindsey just ride with me here but leads into this so trevor. Bauer is still getting paid. Highest paid player in baseball. Hey highest-paid pitcher still getting paid in. The question is should. He still be getting paid. Well that's worked out from a union deal worked out with the players union. Yeah i have no issue with him getting paid because again he's entitled to due process what i'm curious about and i guess next week is going to be the hearing. You know his lawyers just yesterday released more techs. That is that says this is a he said. She said situation that he's insisting all of it was consensual. She's insisting it wasn't. I think there is a chance that there will be no criminal charges now. Even if that happens. I don't think he's pitching for the dodgers again. And i'm i'm curious if he would even pitch anywhere in baseball again right just because of the nature of it. But i think there's a chance he may not get. Somebody will swallow their sense of decency and sign. Trevor well they normally do the the astros signed alberta. Was you know the astros are wearing black hat anyway. Yeah the so. Why wouldn't they sign. Trevor bauer they people boo them. You're at the game the other night. They boo for no reason at all. Right i mean like just a day announce jose altuve eight. There's two minutes booze right. Yeah al to correa play. Bregman didn't play lance mccullers realized only five guys left from that 2017 team right. And there's only gurriel bregman korea and al tuba in the marriage is all new. Yeah the great thing was altuve as struck out four times. That was fun. The bad news was that korea hit a home run. Off of that is kelly got homerun is still going. And korea held his hand to his ear like i can hear you as he was rounding third base. And we'd just booed more. So what makes trevor bauer situation. Interesting is major league. Baseball has to step in and suspend him or else the somebody like the astros will sign him. Yeah i can't believe he's not suspended by now. I think its due process. I know but based on different sports the players union in baseball is the strongest union in all of sports everything gets negotiated through the players union. And i don't think there is a mechanism to not pay. Trevor bauer or even suspend him without him having an investigation. And the thing. That's really interesting about this. Particular story is how long this investigation is taking sure. get ready. There's a hearing date for lay third week of august rague which is the third time it's been postponed. And that's why. I think there is a chance. I'm not a lawyer is maybe after they do this because i was reading about it today. They expect the alleged victim to be up there for two hours testifying at this hearing and they expect. Trevor bauer to be up there for two hours testifying at this hearing and i think because this has taken so long that there's a chance he won't be march see. I think the longer it takes the worse it is for him. Well we're talking about this long. It's taken this long to exonerate him of something. There's a lot of evidence there right but we'll see i mean it's all i think it's all going to but but your initial point is one hundred percent accurate. He's not only being paid. He's the highest paid player on the dodgers. Yeah and he's the highest paid pitcher in baseball. Yep he is. And and we got mac shire's or to replace him and i like the trade. Is there any scenario which okay. let's see. This investigation breaks his.

"Fears comes in in the fourth or fifth spot in the rotation things out Quickly you guys have any thoughts on this or some of the other names that the bluejays jays have been mentioned in this week i think overall the blue jays are just doing what they've been doing all offseason. Anybody that can improve the team or addresses a need is going to be looked at. Mike myers is interesting Like you said mark probably would be a back end of the rotation type starter. Not a bad option. The fifth starter is kind of the one position where the blue jays kind of expected somebody to audition for it. Now we were looking at guys. Like anthony k Whatnot they could. Whoever performs the best in spring training gets that fifth spot whereas in the third spot. It's probably gonna be somewhere external or from an external source from assigning or a trade but with fires. I it's interesting. He could take up your fifth starter. I mean he is thirty five so you know might only be a year maybe to something something like that. Maybe kind of do it. Matt shoemaker did but overall the blue jays are just you know they're looking at everybody and it's not about a bad thing to have all your options available but overall. I think it's hard to say if a deal is likely because again looked at everybody but it would he be a good option for the blue jays wouldn't be a bad option. I'll put it that way Might fires is interesting. What is well. I kind of reminds me of mark what we brought up last week with gary richards kind of like the same caliber of a player. Kind of almost like a fallback option. But when i think of mike fires. I assume the famous whistle blower from the astros scandal. twenty seventeen. But you know he's he's a decent pitcher he's a good you know he'd be a good back into the rotation Option a kind of a good fallback option. I'm sure i don't know if you guys have also seen this. But a report came from an hour ago that the mets actually approached the blue jays about a stephen match straight. I don't know if you guys saw that The jays didn't seem overly i it. Just i guess the asking price wasn't there but kind of interesting how that was also or the mets kind of approach. The jays about that is there kind of the. Mets are shopping. Stephen matt so i guess. The jays didn't budge on that. Or maybe discussions are ongoing but I guess that's another potential name around the league. Who could be traded by the winter meetings or traded by spring training I like these players. This is why. I like the amount of interest they have is. Because of something doesn't happen they can fall back to these other names Garages again was one of them. Who were was discussed last week. And of course the mike fires rumors are just approaching right now. And we'll see what happens with that. We'll see we'll see what happens with them. Other players may be Within the organizations while who left last year late guy matt shoemaker taiwan walker and i said lots of options but mike fires wouldn't be a bad option A good fallback option for the back end of the rotation and the stephen matt's report from an hour ago interested me a little bit but it doesn't seem like that is going to go anywhere at this time but I don't know if you guys had any other thoughts other names..

"So if you trade gurriel than you're going to need an outfielder and many rumors over the last couple of weeks. Talked about. George springer guided. The bluejays are interested in. Yeah i mean that's somebody that you could replace him with. But again i i. It's possible but i just. I don't think it necessarily needs to happen soon. At least right now. I what i wanna see. The blue jays do is focused on the parts of the team. Like i keep saying that need immediate fixing. They need another starting pitcher. You can argue that. They need more relief pitchers as we saw with. Aj cole he is he's been non tendered congeals out for the entire season next year. So there are aspects of the team. That are not kind. They're not complete for twenty twenty one. I don't think that just trading for someone like francisco indoor who is a good player but it's just it's it's not what i think the jays needs to do right now. It's it's not something of immediate focus although he is a good player. But it's just there. I i think this is the problem. Bluejays are kind of casting a wide net over so many players and they've kind of just forgot about the aspects of the team that actually do need to be fixed rather than just all these players are available and we should just get whoever we need. Because that's just as we've seen bring this up a little bit. But i think possibly trying to get so many players unfortunately going to hurt the blue jays but yeah just don't wanna see francisco indoor to the blue jays. Yeah you guys know that. I am all for this and i still am all for this for francisco indoor I just think you know for the basic word of upgrade. If you bring francisco indoor you are a better baseball team and yes. The infield is set right now but you. You made a key point. Jacob new said that cabbie was interchangeable and that is pasta and that is correct because can be can play multiple positions and he can play the outfield. And if you wanna have a better team in the lineup and francisco endure is available. I think that trading preferences school endure is something that you should widely consider. Especially because i believe that he is a better player than pretty much laura's guerrilla junior and others who would be package but the problem that comes with it of course as contract He has to get paid. He's going to be a free agent at the end of two thousand twenty one. So that's the other. That's pretty much the part holding back if there's a way you can bring 'em over. Sign him because pretty much. She just wants to get paid right now. I just. I still don't see how you don't do that You know like you said jacob if you trade. Someone laura's gurriel junior You know there are replacements and cabbies. You could be one of them. Who could play the outfield. And of course. There is the george springer rumors by you know. You also made the point that they should be focusing on other aspects. Which i'm sure they are. Just because you're focused on one doesn't mean you're not focus on pitching. They can easily be doing both. We know that the one the keyword that's been used this offseason so far is that the team will be aggressive and just because they're focused sunlen door. It doesn't mean that they aren't focused on pitching behind the scenes because quite frankly none of us know what the heck they're thinking right now other than the pretty much interested in a ton of players in a number of players. Many of those players are also pitchers. We went through this last week. Mark took We spoke about garrett richards. We've we've been speaking about others. We've been speaking about others..

"Deficit ninety five. Second one thirty eight. I'm your host mark collie as always. I'm joined by pricing and jacob. How're you guys did. Tastic how are you. I'm pretty good. And we have jacob back with us after a week off last week. How are you jacob. I'm happy to be back. You enjoy your vacation was busy. Well well you were gone. I know if you heard. But apparently rogers wants to demolish rogers Yeah you probably heard about that. But there's other news this week coming out the biggest piece of news that we got and i guess the thing that will start it off with came yesterday out of cleveland. We heard that. The cleveland baseball team would quote love on quote to trade Francisco lindor to the blue jays in a deal involving lord.'. Goyal junior We that these two teams were potential trade partners. But this is kind of the first picture we got of an actual firm deal potentially coming through so right off the bat. I want to get your thoughts on this. I know you talked a little bit about it in our group but francisco lindor for lawrence correo junior. Plus i'm assuming a couple prospects. Would you do it all right. I'm going to start often. Say i do not want this deal to be made. Not because i don't think francisco lindores a good player. But i he's not with the blue jays need right now and i know bracing you said to me that francisco. Indoor improves the team and that is true. I mean he is a very good player but there are aspects of the team that i think need to be worked on right now before they go and ad Not unnecessary but they. They improve on parts of the team. That are already good. And i mean we saw this year with guys like bijou. They're pretty much going to stay in the infield bijou's interchangeable but if left just natural processes he's going to stay in the infield and just. I don't think we need to really improve on that. Yes technically improvements are possible. But i just i like the infield right now. And plus we've got guys like austin martin enjoy groshans who are only a couple of years away who is gonna just are just gonna add to the complexities of this crowded field. So i don't think that a guy like francisco indoor is needed. I mean he like. I said he's good. He would improve the team. But i think there are other things. That should be should be focused on right now before you just go and improve on aspects of the team. That are already good. I mean there's a big hole in the in the starting rotation. There's only i mean we have review and pearson we have tanner Robbie ray but other than that. I mean the fifth starters kind of just going to be whoever takes it in spring training but there needs to be a third starter and i think there's parts of the team that do need to be improved upon before you just kind of improve on other aspects that are already good and Also one of the things that. I kind of a little confused on about this deal. Potential deal is the fact that lord juniors outfielder and francis school indoors and infielder..

"Struggled down. Fortunately and it you know, he wasn't the sole reason why the Blue Jays lost that game. I think they did only score. What was it two runs off of Danny chance at home runs, but it you know still it was a disappointing season other one thing I will say is this this might just some people might sound a little bit weird, but I'm in a way happy to see how upset the players were after game to you know, you saw guys like Lourdes gurriel, Jr. Just looking he just sat with his head down for like a solid 2 minutes and it showed that they cared they wanted to win they thought they could win and unfortunately, they they just got out maxed. I think that's the best way to put it and it showed that they cared and that they wanted to be better and all throughout social media every any player that has either Twitter or Instagram always talked about how we're going to be back. This is just the beginning and it shows that you know, this is a young group of not even just teammates just friends that know that hey we did not play the way that we should and off. Went to be better next year. So it's you know overall sad ending but this is just the beginning so I mean Especially considering the fact that a lot of these players have not even had a full combined full season. You know Bo bichette came up midway last year missed half of the season this year Guerrero be the same thing so that you got a lot of guys that are very inexperienced and I think you know overall they might have lost a battle but in the end they're going to win a war at that kind of analogy makes sense, you know them to be better and they said a new standard for themselves make the playoffs and win, you know, they won in the minor leagues now that they prove that they can at least compete in the big leagues. I think this is definitely a sign of good things to come down. The Blue Jays weren't supposed to be here in the first place. So I mean we can criticize them all we want for the mistakes that they made you mentioned the bo bichette there that I guess you could say cost of blue cheese the game even though they weren't really scoring anything cuz obviously pichette made that are that would have been the third out of the inning and then hydrogen where you proceeded to give up a grand slam so you can criticize him Is all you want for that but bottom line the Blue Jays weren't supposed to be here the fact that they even were in the first round of the postseason against the Tampa Bay Rays was kind of a miracle who's kind of, you know a gift and it was certainly fun to watch. So and and like you said the players you can tell we're super into it. And this is only good experience and it only gets better from here. We knew the Blue Jays. Like I said, I'm supposed to compete this year. But after this season, it's it's only going to be better for them. We know next year. They're going to be a lot better if they get a full season out of the likes of you know, Tay Oscar Hernandez, if you're sitting like he was this year Rowdy tool as if he's hitting like he was this year or at least part of this season Lourdes gurriel Jr. He hit 308 this season if he does that over a full season and he's not making I think five million dollars next year like that is really great for the Blue Jays and it's going to do a lot of good things that like, you said Bubba said if he's not injured cavan Biggio if he keeps up his job. High rate of walks if the Blue Jays go out and get some veteran pitchers which will talk about later or re-signed guys like Walkers Shoemaker or even if Nate Pearson comes up and he he's not injured any he develops a little bit and you can get out in the major. It's only uphill from here for the Blue Jays. It's only going to get better and I think this year is just it's good experience for them. I can't really be portrayed as anything negative. One thing I did take from this series with the raised and we saw Ross Atkins talking a little bit about it in his media availability yesterday. He mentioned that this year the Blue Jays have two or next year the Blue Jays have to do better about taking walks and not walking as many guys as pitchers because we saw that a lot this season and I think that's something that stood out in the series against the Rays. I think it really showed the difference between the Blue Jays and the Rays and part of the reason why the race have been successful is here. It seemed like every single app suck. In the first game with Blake Snell on the mound and to a lesser extent the second game with Tyler glasnow on the mound. The Rays were starting off the Blue Jays with a know to count every time it seemed like every single at-bat started off O2 in the Blue Jays were battling back and obviously they couldn't succeed that way because when your download to it's tough to get a hit. So I think that's something that really stood out that off with the raised. It really really well against the Blue Jays and I think that's part of the reason why they were successful in shutting down the Blue Jays offense that had previously been one of the best in the majors. It definitely was a good lesson and going back to it as well. They are legitimate contenders to win the World Series. So it was a great lesson. Well, it was a good lesson definitely a tough less less than to watch and probably go through for them. But yeah, just a little things with like you mentioned Mark how many times they were down O2 and then just overall going beyond that series all year. There was Defensive issues. There was baserunning miscues, there's lots of stuff they have to clean up song. But it's all part of the growing pains and you know, they will be back who knows what the team exactly will look like but it will definitely look similar to what we saw this year. They have all their core pieces intact. There's going to be some changes to the rotation that'll be interesting to see if players like Ryan borucki or Anthony K kind of transition back to a starting rotation role, but that's another topic if the offseason but you know, it just it was definitely a good season to begin with and we know we know the story with them this year how close they got going back to summer camp when they were quarantining in the Rogers Centre Hotel off when they weren't allowed to play in Rogers Centre where they were on the road for pretty much the first two weeks of the season and they had to spend, you know, majority of their home games that a minor league facility in Buffalo..

"Struggled down. Fortunately and it you know, he wasn't the sole reason why the Blue Jays lost that game. I think they did only score. What was it two runs off of Danny chance at home runs, but it you know still it was a disappointing season other one thing I will say is this might just some people might sound a little bit weird, but I'm in a way happy to see how upset the players were after game to you know, you saw guys like Lourdes gurriel, Jr. Just looking he just sat with his head down for like a solid 2 minutes and it showed that they cared they wanted to win they thought could win and unfortunately, they they just got out maxed. I think that's the best way to put it and it showed that they cared and that they wanted to be better and all throughout social media every any player that has either Twitter or Instagram always talked about how we're going to be back. This is just the beginning and it shows that you know, this is a young group of not even just teammates just friends that know that hey we did not play the way that we should and off. Went to be better next year. So it's you know overall sad ending but this is just the beginning so I mean Especially considering the fact that a lot of these players have not even had a full combined full season. You know Bo bichette came up midway last year missed half of the season this year Guerrero be the same thing so that you got a lot of guys that are very inexperienced and I think you know overall they might have lost a battle but in the end they're going to win a war at that kind of analogy makes sense, you know them to be better and they said a new standard for themselves make the playoffs and win, you know, they won in the minor leagues now that they prove that they can at least compete in the big leagues. I think this is definitely a sign of good things to come down. The Blue Jays weren't supposed to be here in the first place. So I mean we can criticize them all we want for the mistakes that they made you mentioned the bo bichette there that I guess you could say cost of blue cheese the game even though they weren't really scoring anything cuz obviously pichette made that are that would have been the third out of the inning and then hydrogen where you proceeded to give up a grand slam so you can criticize him Is all you want for that but bottom line the Blue Jays weren't supposed to be here the fact that they even were in the first round of postseason against the Tampa Bay Rays was kind of a miracle who's kind of, you know a gift and it was certainly fun to watch. So and and like you said the players you can tell we're super into it. And this is only good experience and it only gets better from here. We knew the Blue Jays. Like I said, I'm supposed to compete this year. But after this season, it's it's only going to be better for them. We know next year. They're going to be a lot better if they get a full season out of the likes of you know, Tay Oscar Hernandez, if you're sitting like he was this year Rowdy tool as if he's hitting like he was this year or at least part of this season Lourdes gurriel Jr. He hit 308 this season if he does that over a full season and he's not making I think five million dollars next year like that is really great for the Blue Jays and it's going to do a lot of good things that like, you said Bubba said if he's not injured cavan Biggio if he keeps up his job. High rate of walks if the Blue Jays go out and get some veteran pitchers which will talk about later or re-signed guys like Walkers Shoemaker or even if Nate Pearson comes up and he he's not injured any he develops a little bit and you can get out in the major. It's only uphill from here for the Blue Jays. It's only going to get better and I think this year is just it's good experience for them. I can't really be portrayed as anything negative. One thing I did take from this series with the raised and we saw Ross Atkins talking a little bit about it in his media availability yesterday. He mentioned that this year the Blue Jays have two or next year the Blue Jays have to do better about taking walks and not walking as many guys as pitchers because we saw that a lot this season and I think that's something that stood out in the series against the Rays. I think it really showed the difference between the Blue Jays and the Rays and part of the reason why the race have been successful is here. It seemed like every single app suck. In the first game with Blake Snell on the mound and to a lesser extent the second game with Tyler glasnow on the mound. The Rays were starting off the Blue Jays with a know to count every time it seemed like every single at-bat started off O2 in the Blue Jays were battling back and obviously they couldn't succeed that way because when your download to it's tough to get a hit. So I think that's something that really stood out that off with the raised. It really really well against the Blue Jays and I think that's part of the reason why they were successful in shutting down the Blue Jays offense that had previously been one of the best in the majors. It definitely was a good lesson and going back to it as well. They are legitimate contenders to win the World Series. So it was a great lesson. Well, it was a good lesson definitely a tough less less than to watch and probably go through for them. But yeah, just a little things with like you mentioned Mark how many times they were down O2 and then just overall going beyond that series all year..

"Thanks, unless crowded me back there. It's more than just a conversation. The weekly dish with Keith law on baseball tonight. Keith us gaffe-free SPN. He writes for ESPN, he's on television, free SPN Akita. I wanna ask you about a decision that came down last Friday from major league baseball after that incident between Brad Keller, and Tim Anderson of the Chicago White Sox. Tim Anderson gets ones of getting a one game suspension are Jeff passan reported. And I'm not going to be explicit about the words that he discovered were said by Tim Anderson, Brad. Keller. The Tim Anderson essentially was suspended a game for yelling week act and word at Brad Keller. And I got to tell you that when I first heard about the suspension, I thought boy, this is a slippery slope for major league baseball to go down to start to legislate. The words that players are yelling at each other on the field during fights in our Sunday night baseball production. We talked about this a little bit on Sunday morning and Alex Rodriguez said, yeah, if you were to try to break down all the words that are being yelled by the players, speaking Spanish, she said, he said, you would hear a lot of stuff. And I was gonna write a column along those lines. And then I thought more about it. And I talked to other people who who have some knowledge of this decision. And basically what I got back was look, you can't yell words like that in a place of work. And I thought about all the places that I worked in a in a bagel place in west Lebanon, New Hampshire at newspapers at ESPN in. If anybody had yelled anything remotely close to something like that. You absolutely would be suspended. You wouldn't be disciplined. And I thought back to other situations that had happened. You know, you, you know, less Kabar with the I black beneath his eyes, and he had the the word that was homophobic on that. He wanted to being suspended. We saw the thing with Yuli gurriel during the two thousand seventeen World Series making the gesture toward the mound. I think it was kept on my ADA at that time, and the more that I thought about I said, you know, what that they're right? You can't do that in a place of work. Out on the field. If you're playing in a pickup basketball game, stuff's going to get yelled. And that's not under the jurisdiction on the field. I get it. What do you think? Yeah. I you are probably right. Also, I had a few pretty good discussions on Twitter. Chats clarify 'cause mostly Twitter's cesspool. But if you brought up the very good point, which I agree with, and I thought I it's the only explanation come up with will Wh-why mutually baseball chose to do. This is that if a white player chose to use that same word towards an African American player in yet. Major league baseball had not suspended African American player for using that word, and they might have a problem maintaining that discipline in the case of the white player using you know, I personally philosophically have an issue with disciplining an African American player for using that word because that word has in. Nearly different meanings. Particularly different connotations depending on the race or background of the person. Using it to me Anderson using that word is very different than if Brad Keller had used that war. If you're I had used that word in this suspension appears to not take that into account at all the problem is I don't know that suspension could take that into account because major league baseball sort of internal Justice system does operate on precedent. I know it's not a court system, but it kinda functions like one, and if they were to try to turn around suspend a white player for using that word in the direction of an African American player later, but didn't suspend him Anderson for using it. They might have a problem getting that to hold up in front of third party or betrayed her at some point. And so I understand why they did it. I don't like it. I don't think that word has anywhere this thing, wait or or derogato-. Corey..

So far and unlikely to be again this year going into age thirty five and the fact that they have other players. So the fact that he doesn't walk is, actually helpful. I would say in this case because it's going to still give you a good volume of at bats over five hundred to get that batting average, usefulness. If he was like a ten percent walk guy that might almost detract away from what he does best. So I kind of like Gary out here as a batting average play late. How do you feel about the thirty five year old I third dual eligible? Yeah. I think he's one of those guys that is perfect for a reserve list or a bench because he's got the dual eligibility.
