Ariel Pink, Doug Aitken and Hyun Jin Cho

"Welcome to the MONOCLE weekly on Monaco twenty four with me Augusta match Larry and Marcus Hippie on today's broker we'll be heading to the big apple might remember his iconic tiger tiger poem standing out among the verses of England Really with pictures of the devil and fool Well Augustine we haven't done this before have we but what's happening in the upcoming seven days what's in the news agenda well my first story actually happens today today's the believe in election and the continue with what's happening in the next seven days though let's do it let's look ahead to next week who's here to do it with us on repairing the whole fish there's been a lot of talk about nose-to-tail cooking how you students waste any bits anonymous when preparing food and you can apply and then prepare something nice from the guts bones sent is something I've never done before because I'm not a great chef in the end Amora for me how what I noticed though they're very small marcus it's quite difficult to engage with an exhibition of very very small pictures one example of Wednesday's actually does Emma Henry I do remember Henry rather well it said that we lost him for New York but I guess that's the way life goes on a more positive note it's being quite an accent approach to fish as well so I interviewed Shaush we'll be hearing that interview later on the menu but this afternoon I thought I would go and buy a whole fish nice to meet man a Sunday Scheffer exactly what she likes to comfort dinner in the evening very much I'd like to eat some scales and fin that's the deal we have marcus how exciting six minutes of interesting stories and discussions ahead was looking forward to the most probably my interview with Doug Aitken I just we've got an excellent excellent interesting story here is because evermore is trying for his fourth term but that's the first time that I think he really has a competitor which has columnists so lot of people weekend materials I know that you've been insuring your culture haven't here I went to see a couple of exhibitions including one by William Blake who are fans and poetry fans with Autism Doug Aitken we'll be meeting film curator Hyun Jin to delve into the history of Korean cinema in advance of the London Korean Film Festival report from Henry Re Sheridan regular listeners might remember him as sometime produce a now commentator from New York who doesn't have what monocle welcome hello will you invite me for dinner as well by the way you have to ask Marcus about that because quite picky with what you eat I am but I never tasted unity's is being a fairly popular president even though believe it remains like the poorest country in South America they improved so much when it comes to GDP less poverty your cooking so I'm curious now even though I would avoid the bring in the guts not completely defeats the whole purpose I can get to your own fish fillet for this evening Massa we'll all go see him what I've been I've been really inspired by the Australian shift goes up with some days Josh Neyland he's from Sydney he's released into the election might go for a run off in the Samba and even morale is an interesting case because even though he's a left-wing President I mean he always had very good relationships with the Business Monaco San Fernando that's coming up plus Monaco's own for no I will stop at checkout will be looking ahead to next week's news and we'll have some music that's still to come on the Monica Weekly monocle twenty but there are trouble ahead I think he didn't dealt very well with recent forest fires in the country people start criticizing him and even people from laughed are saying you know what he undermined democracy little bit because he's trying for his fourth term that's what a lot exactly so it wasn't just only Brazil that was having a hard time with the forest fires many many other countries to believe terrible terrible fires I mean there's been such a devastation to nature you know certain indigenous communities as well as quite as sad interesting you always Sundays in Brazil Sundays as well I guess they do things differently and always hates on a Sunday why just I want to be story and perhaps could be the downfall of evermore is difficult predicting because the election is today maybe we're going to have a key result because as they said the election it is difficult to predict but you know I think just intruder will kind of hang on as the leader but definitely with not clear majority as he had less time but for a runoff interesting there's definitely a lot to watch coming out of Latin America at the moment isn't that fate what have you got next we'll stay in the Americas were more to the North Tomorrow uh-huh meeting a big steaming bowl of fish guts you want to have your excuse to escape job for a couple of hours and vote number going but again Canadian the twenty first of October is the Canadian election is interesting by the way Canadians vote on Mondays I think the first country that come across the vote someone may many others see us surgeons for share I think she was about fifty at the time even though we don't talk about age when he comes to share she doesn't have a timeless your favorite Song Oh God In two thousand four the record label port doc which would go on to have a huge influence on indie music buzz pink who was born area Rosenberg had been recording music ceaselessly since nine hundred ninety six hundred she's a legend there are few legends today in the music world she's a legend and never seen him I'll be there is the here we go again tour you know the song that we play and the leader of the opposition of course just had a few scandals with the oil pipe there's been quite a lot of controversy as well but the leader of the Conservative Party apparently is quite adults New York staying I remember reading a quote from you for my segment here Fernando she did re record that song and she will perform it because I did check the set list before I've got so many share related memories one of them being when I was very young and I went on this booze cruise from Helsinki to Stockholm and there was a disco on board that boat and the detail would only play d smaller margin the last time well I'm wondering if there's anything happening in the next seven days that's not election related Fernando Dairies One and actually it's tomorrow is also if you're not interested songs some of which made it onto self released cassette tapes and CDs now the Brooklyn Label Mexican summer is putting out reissues of the Ariel Pink albums that Rosenbaum says is much of a gap between now and the periods in which you made those early records as ever is between that period and the early eighties in the Canadian elections. Why don't you come to the Ocho arena here in London we've me what's happening there share will be performed to go I am going to go and you said that something which really is shaped musical sensibility is your earliest memories of music that were formed kind of the early eighties and it just struck me the it basically spent twenty years as a twenty year old and then having you know W- When I was twenty years old being so kind of aware of where I was tracks put out an album called the doldrums by Ariel Pink's haunted graffiti for most people it was that first encounter with the warped and prolific musical imagination of areas recorded and released in obscurity between ninety nine thousand nine hundred thousand four Monaco's inimitable Henry Sheridan met him the Mexican Summer Studios in be the shoop shoop song it's a classic it's easy it's just I got you babe as surrogates I chose to yeah that's fine there's not with sunny too yeah I think the thing is I was talking to Daniel or Canadian colleague in the parliament will be more fragmented this time he might have to do a coalition which is not a new thing in Canadian politics I am not very inspiring so let's see the green policies apparently will do well we'll have to wait and see but my prediction is that just intruder who remain prime minister by cassettes worth is that figure anchor number one and number two why well I mean I think it's more than that why I feel like dictating my current path and yeah I felt a lot about that in so many different ways I still try not to mythologies off the flame summer simmers down you really can actually breathe for for violent now that I do the monocle weekly you at home in a moment we'll be hearing from the cult art rock Ariel Pink don't go away in hindsight it was all very much a case of my sort of wanting to be acknowledged and to be heard and to be seen instead myself as far as that's concerned me no I feel I feel knowledge tonight I don't feel a burning desperate urge to tomorrow diary of not only your life at the time but also the development of your artistic method neurotic process basically diary of you learning to record at five years old and having that informed my creative impetus and all that kind of stuff and then having my twenty year old self now sort of although unlike diaries the process of making it is one of the endlessly listening back to these things old in having you know sort of like a come to awaken into my current self more or less around twenty years ago and having I just abandoned these things and then just came back thirty years later in rhythm for the first time these things are like there every single moment of my life with some sort of artistic stamp if those early recordings kind make music when you go back and listen to those early recordings now is it like reading an old diary oh how you imagine that would be me I don't listen back to the like that into I think there was a sort of burning desire that was at the root of all that you know in a need for love to once you get that that on the show is this sold out probably I hope so a show that we can join the fight thanks so much for joining us to take a look at next week you're listening somehow swiped my memory of it clean but somehow somehow listen to it as if I've never heard it at all and see songs very much anymore because I know them inside out so it's they've always been been ingrained in my mic consciousness unlike a diary for instance it's not like you know I mean the each song is a trip into yourself you know you go you go back in you listen to what you recorded previously in the new basically and remixes soft the sheriff's on believe I think we'd better just knocked that anecdote on the head this is a family show marcus we don't WanNa know where that's going to end up going story I'm basically re re wrote the history of of his life and set the record straight so to speak from his perspective before dedicated Bob Jameson the title refers to Bob Jameson who was a singer songwriter who looked for a moment in the sixties like he was going to become only due to do it all the time to sort of to stake my claim in in in the universe I really feel quite sated in my personal life in might career doing it it it has taken a stick it on a different dimension and perhaps it's not as much of a diagnostic enterprise I importance of any of that stuff between I think ninety nine hundred nineteen thousand full you record in extraordinary amount of music I think one figure that I've read is over two hundred headed in me whether I like it or not but listening back to them yeah I mean it's there's a slightly alien quality to it I mean I'm definitely don't know how I did them half the time of of lots of people who don't really have a story and so that that part I relate to a lot and breath and I I'd like to include myself among those as well because I don't feel like any in any way shape or form later on and canonized like his brushes with with famous people like Frank Zappa and rolling stones in all these you know we expose yourself to it over and over again you familiarize yourself with you you stack new a new thing on top of it and then you listen to that you see so the whole wrote the history of his life right literally right in history wrote himself into the into the story it's also the story that's just a star and then for various reasons didn't and basically many many years later resurfaced on on the Internet with the blog and it got an manage to like you know brush up against things that were that would come to be very important short-lived and it was somewhat it was it was never really arise it was a it was a sense of possibility but even then it's it's it it comes at a price and there's also a there's a dip in that arc or there's there's pretty much the story I mean not on the far individuals have a star is born you have you know the success story mildly successful career doing what I like so having a big chunk of your back catalog reissues Byron feel psychologically vulnerable spies of that I would feel psychologically vulnerable if I were to be reliant on that as being excessive just like listening back a million times to something in the goal being that when I'm done with a song for instance I mean I you know I'd I'd want to could label and you know that generating significant interest that doesn't give you a sense of having a legacy that has pretty firm foundations you still w that's the whole sort of conundrum it'd be remembered or anything like that I don't think that I have a legacy per se I think it's a it's a very just I have a it's definitely not definitely not about me being fulfilled so much as you know me me me have certain having something of a tool or is it anything to do with work at this point a little bit maybe a lot lot lot less I would say for me it's time the value you know you I don't even really go it's it's not even artistic pursuits that really define me anymore I mean I I kind of I have a different thing so it's a lot less ego driven I guess even this all this time in front of a microphone is in fact it's more flimsy because I'm not does our past is the things that I already did the the recent record or anything like that but either way I mean I'm proud of what I did I don't go to to music to sort of to get my son there's an end to that that that story there's a there's a rise and fall with him the rise was very very gusty shall we continue with some have nothing to do with the future they had nothing to do with where I'm going I don't want to rest on my laurels into this is a resting on my laurels if I ever was resting on him it's even like shading All these things that basically the recordings with all these people he also reminds me of people that I know lots of artists. La He's the story of into the different metric for what brings fulfillment to me in my life. I don't know if that makes we'll symmetric is it is ah trying to trying to understand the impression that it would make if I had never heard it before if I was listening to it with fresh ears so to speak excess Arial Dash Pink Dot Com you're listening to the monocle weekly on Monaco Twenty Four Handy City and resort guides it's all there for you at Monaco Dot Com what are you waiting for within five thousand hours of audio every minute of every show with broadcast since we launched and don't forget that we have over four hundred films to watch and share while magazine subscribers something to something to share with others and something that I feel like I'm easy to please in my own life I've set the bar pretty low thanks to Area Rosenberg Aka Ariel pink cans of course to Henry Sheridan as well you can find details of Mexican summer's area archives spreads you're listening to the monocle weekly or monocle twenty four we music yes Ariel pink made waves with his cover of forgotten seventies odyssey baby by Donio Emerson that's ever listened to the that I that I thought was fixed or like you know that it was like I mean it's not it's it's it's no more it's no more it's flimsy just as much as it ever was entitled return to the Real it's an immersive audio visual exploration of how digital technologies inform our own lives it urges us to stop look around and the world around us today and in doing so how we might imagine a new future dogs later solo show is on now Victoria Miro Gallery in London Kim was and more chicken to Monaco dot com every day for fresh news and opinion from additives emburey around the globe then plan a trip to one of those spots for business or pleasure justify room on board of both how long was believe at the top of the charts for I feel like it was twelve weeks or something ridiculous in the ages he broke so many records and again he was kind of a re I'm it's free time it's it's what I'm interested in pursuing that and it's I think it has more to do with the of the separation between screen life and physical life and I found myself more fascinated by the questions posed this kind of idea of moving into a new this let's do with me it's more to do with with my relationship with others so it's kind of a personal thing as a private thing but it's a rain new landscape which in some ways we don't really know how to navigate I think we're we're equipped with tools we barely knew how to use we're kind of moving into a space which is is bold epic and often public works he's electic practice spannis mediums Baath returns to essential focus how we look at and inhabited weekly on monocle twenty four immerse yourself in the world of Monaco Visit Monaco Dot com listen live to a radio station monocle twenty four or explorer is a space that allows us to question it allows us to have a discussion that discussion can be social or it can be internal without room for that what is their society when you order stock I caught up with Doug finished installing the show at the gallery to learn more the eternal exhibitions returned to the real ad I think I became very interested in this idea. Oh you've art is it's a space outside of over capitalism it's a space outside of direct function and survival and I think in many ways it kind of it's actually disturbs me I don't I don't need to to derive a sense of completion or satisfaction from any of these things this is wasn't simply an image that you look at consume but instead something that was spatial that was perceptual something that you could really explore both in a material sense but I I I really I do see myself in relationship to other people now whereas back then it was religious me me with myself I think the installations designed and away really where the viewer can kind of merge with it they can kind of become part of it I was very interested in creating something that was passed take it then I noticed as mirrors in this exhibition than you've used mirrors before and in other words I always think coining Nazis put some MIRA in a show according to how that blown up says you have these very beautiful sculptures rotating that kinetic sculptures but which have no flexibility can log in and Browse a complete print archive onscreen are online shop is he a to which you'll find well stocked with clothing books travel accessories fragrances so what does spooky an interesting song that was it spawned multiple covers and my titanic marcus that was done in Jameson with baby you're listening to the monarchy most entirely of a human voices layers of overtones and they go back to a kind of musical minimalism taking certain words or phrases repeating them but also de material sense when I D- material I'm talking about sound sowed is a huge component to this exhibition there is two separate compositions which are critical the almost kind of hearkens back to early minimalist music of Terry Riley or Steve Reich the samples but at the same time there's something I think within the exhibition which is Causley awesome antennae today that generate sound random I was wondering because the charm of wind chime is it's randomness it's the way that the hormone ickes operate US patterns and asymmetry for me is very much at the core of a body of work like this here you find the soundscape sounded light is the the upstairs seen them until they become abstract becomes cups salads gifts washes tall I heard from an artist who draws on the past let's me a one who reflects on the president's now US based stunned filmmaker Doug Aitken is known for his breaking that catching you off guard you fall into a hypnosis but then something comes out of the corner of your eye or something comes from behind you and I was really interested in that idea women I think that you know a lot of ways I know this word is very cliche but I do disruption is very essential in many ways and what I mean by that largely undefined it's difficult did you see that as one of the kind of key rows of the artists in the twenty first century working out how we navigate spaces well I think the is that movement in the periphery that disconcerting quality that may be makes us wake up evaluate our surroundings again do we need that at the most really creating almost a set where the viewer is a performer in the viewer gets pulled into it and they find that there are eventually occupying the stage and the film was kind of the film of the mind could you reflect as it were no pun intended of editing that my mother was a journalist okay old old buried this is all he to move so I wondered why the randomness comes in there if it does a tool well I think that's a very good question and not idea that balance between ordering chaos we were sitting outside in the garden between Mira we're looking at this amazing wind chime sound sculpture echoed upstairs they have some sort of is I think if we look at our day to day we look at our week or month or year it's almost impossible to remember certain passages of time there so banal pieces is titled Inside Out Literally Funds Kind of landscape of abstract light pulses of light and Chroma come moving through the space you hear these sounds patterns of sound to meet with Romania can't rock Ariel pink then we'll be asking what roll up plays in helping us to process the world in age of Dizzying Technological Development Your latest record it literally up have you thought about it hasn't made you feel anything I it makes me think about math it makes me think about what twenty years means what it means when a being forty years old that's of disruption that we record that we actually reached back and we pull those periods of time or those situations and they have meaning we assign meaning to them driving in the taxi being on the Highway AIDS sitting down for coffee again and again and again I think a lot of ways when we look back on our personal history it's it's these Ari as a tool to kind of put a wedge in this reality that we're surrounded by in this particular we've really and I found myself really interested in this question this idea of technology and its role and is it an extension of us or does it kind of move beyond messages and I thought how do we arrive at this place and I I said almost kind of personal reflection I said is someone responsible for that and in that situation I found myself literally literally sitting out a Cafe I looked up at every single human I saw was wiping their phones speaking on their phone or gene artists and groups step beyond the questioning even beyond the criticism into a sort of activism wearing candidate standing down at the US too we reach a point where it dictates our moves it controls our patterns or are we always control and able to break free which I don't quite think so right now invented the cell phone and then made the first called history and over the process of creating art work we got to know each other we spent time by film these conversations with them a harmful like phones like people's attachment to them you know this has been documented and things like the great hack its potential influence on the US election sown background like wallpaper and for me that's a huge addressed that were disruption has obviously been popularized and then kind of vilified by facebook it's like where did it come from and I myself done researching the history of the cell phone and that led me back to this man named Martin Cooper who in nineteen seventy three wanted that I wanted the viewer to kind of walk inside the space and start questioning their own condition reflecting on their landscape and using artwork almost simultaneous installation. We're creating London right now and the title of it is new era inside one eighty strand at a show called transformer a new era as a work which I created I think making new era was a very interesting journey and I think you were talking earlier about what is the role of an artwork can it ask questions can empower the viewer without work I really and eventually built a piece which is not a documentary it's very much kind of Holy Tori landscape is kind of a space between the president and what could be the future can the ethos well Silicon Valley in general not an area an industry that's really complicating our relationship at the screen and with the web wasn't that long ago A seem to me to be a kind of cornerstone something that will resonate in the future when we're dealing with these kind of scary forces that on entirely where I found myself asking that question that question is there humanity at the source of technology is an inventor a single person for some of the objects that we can't live without you know I think you're expressing yourself you're putting forth an idea or concept you're proposing something that is open to disagreement and I think that action what's up some questions and some of these are incredibly personal things that kind of eat it you over time and eventually they kind of calcified solidify into the form of some is kind of changing now how is that come to inform your relationship with the digital and the way that you want to reflect on it for your well it's interesting question there is a what existed before we did something two months ago and it was called new horizon it was a one hundred foot flying neared sculpture and with this project think that's kind of one side of the coin perhaps other side of the coin that I find personally as the work I make is really for me largely driven by questions is kind of artwork some kind of sculpture object but at the same time I've found that recently in the last several years more and more doing collaborations with ecological groups this is one hundred hundred fifty different locations across East Coast and it was interesting to me to have a dialogue with them about creating an artwork due to a deep forest but people don't really know how to see it they don't really know how to interact with it they see it as kind of anonymous almost is with plastic pollution with all these topics they become so kind of generic after wild they're hard to personalise their difficult to create artworks artworks that would perhaps bring you into the landscape in a different way and this is what we found both with that's school of Jerem Baldy swim by you could care less if you're a human that dark object in the distance could care less and to me that project was so it wasn't what the museum wasn't through a gallery it was the world's oldest land conservation group the world's oldest land trust called trustees and they shepherd lia powerful society right now if you look at the kind of the homogenize capital structure that we live in we need hear voices of individuals and we all need to be heard see these objects in the distance you approach them you swim through them around them and you find yourself suddenly in this landscape that is completely democratic you ever tempted to I suppose become an activist yourself would you still kind of want to be a PA and exist in an environment where you may be offering a different car myspace and for them I think they this is something that for me that was quite provocative they said we have all this allowed from sprawling Sandina Martha's vineyard that people the artists were thinking about internet this hyper Utopian space so-called postings now was really wide it was really optimistic and humid is you know and I think in that situation with the underwater pavilions we've created three sculptures under the Pacific Ocean you literally had and their audiences and third parties can kind of symbiotically move fluid it's a fascinating revolutionary time to be alive and of it precisely because of the way that you engage with potential futures I wanted to ask whether now is quite complex does it have a moment where everything is unique in real and it's not mundane ed their answer for that in one way was to work with artists reflection than direct action I suppose well that's a it's a difficult question at a complex one I think in many ways the act of making art is a active activism art should move wider it should be outside of only a capitalist structure it should not only be in museums and galleries it should wimmer to I've into and this is bizarre and foreign for some people uncomfortable proposition two Dada wetsuit in December and she flow in terms of cultures where does that leave art where's that leave art making on one hand you know perhaps for someone to sit down evasions which are going to enhance reality I found that being fifty feet under the ocean surface was more shattering my reality a forest is a forest green as green how do we activate that how do we turn that into a starting point to see again to suddenly open your eyes I take time to be doing that. This sort of initiative seems to present quite hopeful view on how artists a robust collection of well-turned titles for an in depth look into our core theme of quality of life why not delve into our first ever book the monocle guide a species have never come across a crossroads like this in human history you know the rate of acceleration sets connectivity the idea liquid form that can just transform an exist on any frequency I think we have more possibilities for communication better living for any would-be business leaders entrepreneurs or even established companies in search of fresh ideas there's the monocle guide to good business in how to me now while London cineastes might be starting to fill a bit jittery as the Post Film Festival then I could have imagined that's fascinating proposition I mean even just to go back to the idea of the artist is a kind of vision and telecaster between organizations between is an extraordinary array of the best of sensory of Korean Cinema August and you sat down with the festival's director Hyun Jin tour to hear more about how Korean experiences between the covers so spruce up your shelves today and by some of our titles online at Monaco dot com or from any good bookstore. Aw thank you doug asking anyone in London shoes escapes and between people do you think that that's something that seems like a future positive future you wear a recipient of the frontier uprise the first recipient take hold they mustn't fear for another one is just around the corner the foresee in London Korean Film Festival starts on the first of November and this year boasts Be on the streets in the error in the ocean in the forest I it should be everywhere and anywhere should be material and immaterial and I think if we really embrace that idea that art is can nation a multiple guide we look at the small and the big things that can help make our nation's work better and in the Monaci to drinking and dining we bypass films of followers popularity in the West Jin started by explaining how the festival began on the London Film Festival is kind of unique I would say into a watercolour is a defiant act to suddenly turned off and to draw and on the other end of the spectrum perhaps you could say where can I go from here and I can't really answer that but I can answer that a little bit for myself for my own beliefs and I'm very invested in the idea that Korean karcher this dot to have a film festival that would dedicate to the cinema but it was a very small festival when we started we had like ten titles yes that is really trying to show the sheer diversity of Korean cinema from of course the well-known blockbusters but also the foam and fuss to uncover the makings of a truly great meal Monaco's handsome books are published by our friends at the Shelton in Berlin and offer a world interesting it was kind of revelatory in a sense that kind of living in the society where we're fed these false myths of virtual reality AI and these technological Zagat for that kind of thing in London I was say the international recognition of Korean cinema kicked off with old boy when that `and more recently the Hamedan have all serve to really raise the profile of Korean cinema in the West cow has that the main principle how did it come about is the fourteenth deterioration of the film festival obviously career has a really rich cinema history but when was it seeing that and now we show sixty titles so he grew every year I'm really interested that you mentioned old boy that I had written down a few other films the host expansion of Korean cinemas market started to change it you mentioned that it may be back to old boy has got a win of Western audiences become something that Korean filmmakers comes as part of their program but the amount of sort of diversity that the KFC brings is I would say is very nick and we tried to really keep that as that was a key moment and I think the London at the time didn't have any presentation of Korean cinema list dedicated to Korean cinema so minister actors who has amazing awareness of what's going on in world cinema at the same time some of these very successful Korean titles I would say a our project and with the underwater pavilions which we did with partly for the oceans and ocean accident activist group and in the same way with issues of the ocean with you know cartridge specific even the parasite which one pomodoro this year the Bugno did say that he was very surprised by this reception under Grand Prix at can invest in two thousand and four of course some of the classic films were presented in Different Film Festival as part of our classic strands on you play with the language but he was very surprised so I wouldn't say these directors make films specifically to sort of target this foreign international oppressive regime so this assay itself is very complex and the film is a reflection of that and I think a lot of people overseas can really mm festivals but somehow the richness and because Korean the last half century to create a went through so much politically socially because society push under a KALPA with a north swell coming lucious and suddenly you find yourself almost weightless gliding through the ocean floor and eight to it and you know the power of that the reality comes through I think in cinemas I'm interested to pick that up because you know obviously cinema from any country oh to ICU for titles to autism moving image to militant documentary so some other film festivals in the UK do show some Korean film get along to see a return to realize Victoria Miro before he closes on December twentieth. You're listening to the Monaco weekly very own Monaco Library is growing into starting to engage with I think that's actually the big question I think we can probably took for now ought to say very briefly I think it's a mixture of Korean films invite foreign audiences because he kind of wanted to make this film that made Korean audiences to giggle there's so many humor's and so many tip jokes with recent releases once upon a time in Hollywood seemed to do fairly implicitly with filmmaker none of these questions obviously career reflects some of the cultural concerns are going on in that place I feel like Hollywood has started to metabolize the fallout of the metoo movement through looking at its contemporary cinema and seeing what's engaging with I think it's very difficult to kind of just say a key theme I will say but I think on social issues in a very subtle way the title we showed last year as an opening title Cold Micro Habitat did do with this woman thirty year old you know in a way it's a lot of people are suffering but we don't exactly know where that's coming from is so I think parasite like many others sort of national cinemas to Korean cinema does deal with this contemporary world we live in we no longer have this way listen Steph is very complex and kind of hazard a challenging issues that stilling weight has a very strong kind of protest culture the same time we had most horrendous yeah has got this ferry for history the twentieth century but I wondered in Contemporary Korean cinema what you can pick out where can we take the temperature of Korean culture eighteen ninety s there are a lot of films that had a direct kind of commentary on the problems that the society had a dictatorship tip very censorship oppressive regime etc but now Korea seems to be wealthy on the surface and it doesn't seem to have this University of North Korean cinema and a lot of directors I spoke to I read about the directors from the nineteen fifties and sixties and seventies been trying to find a place to live in Seoul

ESPNLA Mornings with Keyshawn Jorge and LZ HR4

"Whoa. Put me on a reporter task. Dodgers back in first place for the first time feels like forever house, half game up on the Colorado Rockies. They win last night Hyun Jin Ryu was really, really good. Here's Dave Roberts talking about review last night. He's he's always been a big game pitcher, and I've seen it from the other side for him to be healthy and set the tone for this series. Incomplete command tonight. Stuff was really good and we fed off of him and it was good to see and obviously got Clayton and Walker going the next two games, but the pitching defense, the offense day will played. This couldn't have set a better for the dodgers. They come off of the series in Saint Louis where the one, three, two, four. You come back to play the team that you're chasing and you have your three best guys. You have review last night pitcher, seven innings pitched very well. You get Kershaw tonight, your number one guy. And then I would argue that you have your number one a in Walker bueller pitching on the back end of that. And you got a chance to create a ton of space but enough space to at least you can take a breath at the end of this series. If you win this game tonight, and that's the key. The key is winning this game tonight. The Katina to separate yourself. You get one up on Colorado, you hope that AirAsia gets beat again, and you just continue to keep moving. And like you said, you got walkable on the mound tomorrow night. So as long as that happens in go on and take on the Padres, which we all will soom what's like we did for the reds that the dodgers would take care of business with the Padres that they didn't do necessarily with the red. So you know, it's a big thing for them to make sure that they continue to manufacture run, especially for Kershaw because they've had him in tight situations. The last several outings where when he's left a game, he's had a commanding one, maybe two gamely two run lead or even tied at times, and then they bring in the middle reliever in reliever becomes a disaster. It's it's a beautiful thing. When we played the way the dodgers compla- we are I in a National League ERA. You saw that. Yesterday we are near the top in terms of run differential Usov all that yesterday. This season has always been about those two aspects of team be on the same page for the game, which doesn't always happen. But as much as we talk about, you know, the struggles of guys, I can't Jensen. I just looked it up. He second nationally can say, yeah. So despite the struggles to despite the issues that he's, he's still one of the top five closers in all of baseball. Where's he? Where's he. What your numbers I understand that, but can maybe it's unfair. Maybe maybe the standard that I'm holding. Two is unrealistic, but the standard on holding kenley Jansen to is the standard that kenley Jansen is established in his entire career. He does have the saves that you're talking about z. but kenley Jansen used to be in there. You'd hear California love. He comes out and boom, boom, boom, you're nights over and he shaking hands. And now he comes out and it's all right. Here we go. Let's see which kenley we're gonna get tonight that it's not that just one, two, three. This thing is over cutter, cutter, cutter, cutter thing is over just everything about it is much less. Go ahead Rosh. No, we have breaking news out of Pittsburgh guess Keyshawn. Johnson, of course, has decided. But apparently Keyshawn city probably got a doctor's note from Mike Tomlin of Tomlin has not spoken to him. You'll be around. Therefore my rights Kogyo. Now. I need to get back because it has gone betting my right horn. Valve. See here you're saying? Yeah, I would say I would say this is very interesting. In the wake of the news that just came across ESPN is that in Tonio Brown has not spoken to Mike Tomlin. Mike Tomlin is looking forward to speaking with Antonio Brown as he takes a day off in an unexcused. Absence is what is being somewhat party on bail or von Davis. Well was partying and his record release party was wrapping on stage. Fit like he's good at one hundred zero. He hasn't had to care the ball forty times game so far. He's working on down in Florida. But the back to the candy Janssen conversation, I get your hesitation Travis, but you know, he's made eight appearances. You know, since that collapse in Texas basically and he's gonna give them one earn one pitchy one. Yeah, no straight. He, he's, he's put. If this was a airplane flight were not in a nosedive. Turbulence has mostly died down. It's very smooth at this point. But when you've been on that plane, all of a sudden it starts shaking and going over the rest of the flight, your nervous until it's on the ground. You're nervous and that's what it feels like here. But I just wonder if that piece isn't enough to make what could potentially happen going into the postseason because if they get in and it feels like they're going to, and I think that we've all been saying this, they're the best team in the division they hadn't really separated themselves, but they're the best team in the division. If they get in to your point the way that the starters pitch the way that they score. Runs the way that on any given night, you could have three or four different guys hit a home run. You could score eight runs like that. Yes, in a short series in a best. Seven. I don't need to score eight runs every night. I just need to do it four times. This team can do that the way that they pitch. If you get in there is dangerous as anybody with the exception of the last three outs of the game where I'm not. I don't hate it, but I don't last year going to get the ball to kenley. We got it true and and he he blew him, saves he did. I think that's what this whole thing started was last year. He got. He got overused prop. Yeah, for sure. I mean, they've brought him in a few times eighth unfamiliar territory, maybe doing it once in a postseason is okay. You know, maybe twice, but I thought he, I don't know the number, the top of my head fills if he did that multiple time, he was pitching in the eighth inning a lot. Yeah. A lot dodgers bats wake-up yesterday. Ryu through ninety three pitches over seven shutout innings striking out five while walking none and giving up just four hits Alex. Took over the eighth inning, which wasn't very good making his debut out of the pin in twenty eight teen and things did not go according to plan. He got two outs. We gave up a walk in hit a better basically trying to just I don't know what do what would to hitting the guy, but he hit him and gave up a single score with their new dog. No, there was no Dungs and he added was the dodgers three one run before being put to the side on the bench. Tony synchrony got in one out. Save they now take a half game lead in tonight's game versus the Rockies. All true, true. The would piece is. POC we were talking about somebody's gonna pitch eighth inning, so many exam in a game. It's going to have to be somebody and when whether it's Alexander, whether it's would whether granny, whether it's aureus or any of these guys, whoever it might. What about. Not my could be my ADA two. Absolutely. It could be my. It came by this bias to it's going to have to be some combination of those guys. ECE, because if you got a pitch Kinley into the eighth inning, you're asking for all sorts Brollywood fool with my ADA in that spot. Yeah, that's what there's that, that that will be the plan. It doesn't work only in the rotation right now turn, so they don't have another point is just to season right through. Yeah, we're not depending on him in a postseason putting his struggles real. I think he's going to pitch in one of two situation. They get dodgers got eleven games left. I would be shocked if you see him in any position that isn't one of these two where they're getting blown out or they're blowing someone out. Right. Like that's not. Yeah. Those are the two situations where you're going to see him pitch. I mean, he came in and just gave up the was right away. Two two runs right out the battles, doll. I don't know if there's a connection key football with the same thing, but it's a pitcher. Sometimes it's so easy. You go out there and kick the ball, leaves your hand. It goes exactly where you want it to your so easy. The pitch you want, you wanna, you wanna sinker in. It goes in, you want to curb all the way it goes away. You wanna fastball up. It goes up and you obviously didn't have an often enough for you not nearly enough, and then there's sometimes where you can't even just throw it near home plate. Right? You just can't ditch gone some oil. Sometimes it's between your ears is a mental thing with him because there's been no reports about any injury that could have led to mechanical judgments that have now leads him not being folded. I don't know, just you cold. No, none of on test a serious. You know, listen, reportedly stands with the pad is hand. The peony looks up. So what happened. Seem to get anybody out out news on the hot seat. L z has a special top ten that's coming up next. It's not a pig cow a chicken. You're not eating, you know chopped and I would make is a fine every now and then pretty weird. To eat their own feces. That's not. That's not typical run weird. Venison all last wines. Okay. With me on him and I'm not doing that. I see the deer run down my house. What dear. Keep going past your house. You go, Greg ac- cows walking down the hill, he'll eat Dafur. Why. Growing up. Damn deer growing. Grew up with venison route. I didn't know that have been in the streets, Detroit, man. Oh, okay. I'm pretty sure my mom's. Mississippi. If you know I do. But you thought Kathy's halibut when he was soon? Yeah. Friday night. Friday, French fries in the same Greece, same tasty, tasty, just everything. Sure. You didn't even look at the calories, bacteria Valerie's on a sought, getting it in more the better. I didn't know where calories college Kelly. Who's he play for. Man, how we used to eat. Used to say. I don't eat as rightfully used to fish. Twice a week and be thrill. I haven't had barbecues to draft what? No, you had. We, we have barbecue volume really barbecue. That was like different. I was some smoke different times on the ship thing. Jorges settle down. Who says fucking shrimp. Off of the weird animals and onto the always controversial. L z top ten. Jake, it away l. z. Remember people hate this segment enough to get a sponsor. Now that is right sponsored by altera mound. Company adventure awaits keep listening. There's a chance to play in the snow courtesy of z coming. Can I plan to sell? What are we doing here? Yeah. What. Top ten hand, unfortunately is dealing with the USC troubles. And as I said, you can look at them as being as one and two or you can look at them as I do is insane. One in three, when you factor in, they played Ohio State in the bowl game got blown out basement went back to last year to give us a loss. I'm just saying, man, you had to good quarters and four games. So of course, that means the coach in what he's doing and not doing big question Mark and whether or not he's actually going to the end of the season is another question Mark. So looking ahead, I said, what should USC do the head coaching position? So this is my top ten people who should be a head coach. Ten candidates coming into number ten, stability personify he's an SE grad. He's locale. He's one. I don't like what I think you're gonna say, yes, yes, Justice. The ability did knows all the peoples. He knows they, he knows them. He knows us. He knows we knows nineteen Eighty-four offense as well as anybody you pretty good nineteen fissured thing. I put a check Mark by. Sign off on that. I didn't say put a check Mark by an interview with Wanda he gets interview him wandering Lynn. We can say on them. Now he might have played Swannee. Number nine. Now if you don't like Jeff Fisher because he stable and kind of boring, you wanna ask them, snap, crackle pop something that's gonna catch, headlines, higher, OJ, another bad up, man. You. Another Nessie grad. He breeze greatness back with OJ comes back on the field, the glory years. Damn stadium, pretty sure Nevada. We're gonna have. Only coach. Into the raiders new cars. Coaching Vegas because the way we keep playing Vegas. Number eight. Number eight. Sucky not. John is not doing very well right now with the Oakland Raiders, but he's still got the. He's still got Nasr and he can go into anyone's home and sell you a program. He'll never make it a USC. He's he's, he can make you never never. No, never number. I'd take before John Johnny. Boy, number seven. Another SE grad legend. Someone who's one of the highest heights who's got a rang Jack del Rio. Oh man, seven for seven for key get ready for victory. I'm sorry, Jack del real interviews in the past. I look at that as a check Mark as will only difference between Jack Jack my skin recruits though he just looked me told me as recruits itself, but I'm just saying, you know, sometimes in missile higher dole realize like the team trainer or masseuse, you know what I'm saying? Who stop it. That I don't know. Number six. The sound like. The radio because SE we're talking about and we shouldn't have to go shop at the bargain barrel places for our coaches. We had to go to the Bloomingdale's. We gotta hit the Tiffany's exactly. We should go to the Tiffany to the Tiffany. Tibbets checkbook for ship and open up the checkbook and say, Nick Sabin come on on over Nick, Nick de want the job. He's bored after when they were searching. Think I wanna say Pete because they were, they didn't do it right at the say, Pete, they Nick Sabin ever want that gig just didn't want this is not California's his deal, right? He doesn't want to be in this being California. You could be with Travis in Orange County, California. I've been down that's a different sort of California what I'm used to well, because it ain't very. Diverse. Orange County. Orange County is a different state in his own mind, call it behind the orange curtain because they think they know one goes past seal beach. When they get past seal beach, they get Irving. More back. Travis. Sweet tea's the rear view mirror. If you can't get the top guy because he doesn't want Qaluza fine, then you can get the second best guy coming in number five, urban Meyer. Now I understand he's controversial a little. The problems at university Southern Cal just hasn't problems similar, sort of situation. All ready. That's the reason why is in charge right now, but urban Meyer, unlike the president is actually contrite. He's apologize. He's he's on tour. He just did a split sit down with Tom analogy. He can leave Ohio State saying, I've made his tragedy steak and I want the university washed clean. And then two weeks later says, I decided to job bringing us and bring some dirty laundry, not all we know member. Four ties actually a package deal because I think the tandem and I know they, this does not happen in college football, but that's okay. Does that can break rules and create our own coaches? Exactly. Cohen, coaches, Bill, Parcells, Keyshawn Johnson. So Bill per cells, he's not going to be the guy that's trying to be crude. He's not going to be the guy who's going to do with this. He's not going to do any of that. He's going to be there. And Saturdays, -cational Fridays, bowl games, give you the exit knows walking up and down the field. He sighs going to do all the recruiting the Yemen, the blood practice, being with the boosters package deal the Bill Parcells Keyshawn Johnson package deal with rain, USC back to glory. I'll have close practices. Three number three another currently employees coach, but I think he can be gaffe. He's Georgia Kirby Herbie Kirby smart. It'd be smart for Kirby to take this opportunity to hire a southerner to come in here and BVS's book. Oh yeah, I don't think I don't think I don't think he has the right staff around so you could have dabble or JIMBO SE everybody cool with that. Fisher was in play. The JIMBO Fisher was in play before to Klay Hilton higher happened. It was. He was in serious Perry smarts, hell of a recruiter, Alabama coaches, football, but you don't have the pry him away either Jauzion give him more money, but he. I know that the SEC is the key is key checks, but don't if Nick Sabin students at some point, don't you want out? So you have another way to get in and compete against, say, eventually, fade out, I wouldn't leave Georgia for USC, not in football. That's a lateral move. No, it's a, it's upgrade actually. I think number two confused me number two speaking to this coaches carrying Owen too, but not in NCWA and the NFL. That's right. Baby. We're going back to the gory is bringing pink hair. He. Alang forgive you. You forgive all. Let's get back together because marriage baby need to forgive. PD didn't do anything wrong. Well, not according as he. Sign off that two checks. Absolutely. Yeah. I wanna know, never wanted is if that's number two number one. Number one, sometimes Travis. When themes get hard, there's this Tennessee to to change would. This is actually like shake things up the sim times it smart to state. Of course. That's right. Baby number one, twenty Hilton has ride waved through MENA, make the adjustments. He needs to make if you need to fire teen meta fire t. he's one arose bow. These been to another bone got by state, but you still went to another road. So I say, give the man, a chance of key has been lobbying for to fix what's wrong with his staff take over their responsibilities of offense coordinator and let Klay ride this thing through just because there's a stall doesn't mean you turn the ship around could have been worse. She could've put t- Martin in. Okay. Well, you tell me off the real. I don't know about that. About what vio real well Keyshawn Johnson research Rio Fink. Oh, yes. I think he's at the top of not your boy Klay. Well, I, I want to make sure that we're not the show a firing people. We are got rid of Mitch Cup check. Goodness. Yeah, we got rid of Jeff Fisher. You know, you put on the list. So clearly we have a lot of power on his show. So I wanna use the power cautiously with great power has great response. Khalil Mack doing work last night. And Jon Gruden still telling lies as well. That's coming up plus the bit of the day. That's next. You know today is easy. Tuesday. It is. You know what else today is the eighteenth also correct. All right. I'm gonna row wanna. Go for the hat trick. Okay, there's another day. There is Ben Carson's birthday also. True also national cheeseburger day national cheeseburger. Yeah. Yeah. So where's your spot? Because there's a right answer to this question. If you get a right, I don't really eat burgers. What I know why just health conscious decision means. And didn't known to calorie note. Average ground beach. There can be as many as seventy different cows in there. That's fine. I don't need to know that. I'm outta drew by one of those cows Hogger you ain't gonna make it long. You're trying to turn it into one of those quote, weird animals, and I'm not gonna. I'm not gonna let you have that beef is unwieldy as again. I mean I was hungover Saturday, so I did go to Johnny rockers, Johnny rockets rockets. Yeah, we go. Rockers would be like something different Vanessa del Rio yet she goes to get her burgers for their and I get my burgers from Johnny rockets. Is that what you're saying? That's not what I'm saying. The answer is the apple pan over on PICO on the west side. Apple pin, pan, pan, frying pan burger now, wrong. Burgers burgers. Esam beef, some bread as tomatoes and stuff it while the can be that there could be other things to this is trust me. Do I look like? I don't know my way around a cheeseburger. I didn't want to point that out. I want to say, you know what? I should just go with what you're exactly right. So Khalil Mack was all over the field again yesterday, where does he this burgers? I don't know, but they're, they're effective, whatever they are. He was terrorizing Russell Wilson on the heels of terrorizing Sean Kaiser and Aaron Rodgers a week ago and the raiders are still getting the question. John Gruden in particular, do you regret making the Khalil Mack trade? Here's what he said now doesn't make me regret trait in a, we made a trait. There's to be hindsight fifty fifty all that stuff, but we would love to have him here and I'm not gonna keep rehashing this. I would love to coach him love to have, but he's not here and you know, somebody's got to step up. We gotta keep building our football team. That's what we're gonna do. Hopefully we see more from PJ hall when he gets healthy and hopefully hopefully we prove that in a long term we did the right thing. We'd love to have had him. You know, it's just not true. You know what? Travis when I'm in trouble with my. Are half and I would love to make up with them. One of the things I like to do is actually talk to the person. I would actually talk to the person that I will and say to them directly. I will love for you to be here. Interesting strategy. So I'm just curious Mr. Gruden and granted I've never played the game. I don't have a championship ring, but if you want to be, they tell him that why didn't you at least pick up the phone and talk to the plan? Because Johnny boy is telling stories to make himself look good. That's why it's time for the of the day of the day that bit at the day, the bit of the day is driven by foreign Burg Los Angeles on the sunset strip. Travis. I'm giving us a. He what he he went through out of his four games for seven points. Oh, that's good. Six point l z, you go, you one, three out of your four games, six points. And then we have Keyshawn bringing in the rear or. What free up the rear up with the bat downs. Worst episode ever for his up. Moreover, that sounds. Trying to keep us on your. I'm doing a family show here, but Keyshawn one just one game this we and he has four points overall season standings. Travis has sixteen LT has fourteen and whatever with the rear Keyshawn has nine points. What's the problem. Just I got this new new season. You know what it is the new season. I gotta just figure it out. That's all I'm figuring each team out, like you said, I don't know what that is yet, but at the end of the day is not what you start. It's where you finish because a lot of different way to the end. Right. Rico. Win from sweet tea. The day, the bit of the. All. Porn burglar on the sunset strip brings you a bit of the day every morning to wrap up the visit Hornberger Los Angeles dot com and Rover above and beyond. Keep you guys guessing those e you never know coming sweet tea, white bra, Rick. Travis. Alter-ego tribes to starting to bore me. Personalities that you have those guys fun. Keep guess it. I guess.

FOX TALKS BUSINESS PODCAST - Law in a different light

"I'm tanya fox and you're listening to fox talks business podcast. I started my career in the corporate world but always played to my own tuned and love to think outside of the box. This didn't always serve me well with the bosses so i made the decision to become an entrepreneur and that little seed of entrepreneurial curiosity continued to grow as i branched out into retail service and franchise businesses. Now i have been fortunate to have amazing successes in the last two decades but they do not come about some really big failures and even bigger lessons learned. And that's why. I started this podcast not just to share the failures but to show you how you can turn every failure into a success. We're going to hear from some amazing humans from around the world that are going to share their stories of the good the bad and the motivational entrepreneurial life has to offer after all life is too short to make all of the mistakes herself so why not learn from each other and of course. We're going to have some fun. Because as i always say. Well you know what. I'll tell you that at the end of the episode. So thank you for coming on the show today scott. I'm excited about our conversation. Oh great to be here tonya. Thanks for having me so tell us a little bit of background because of course you're an attorney which most people especially entrepreneurs tried to avoid. Because they think that that means something bad has happened but tell us a little bit about why you decided to go in this direction will This is a pretty long story in for a long time ago. Kind of dates me. I guess but it turned turned fifty two this week and so back. I was twenty three. I went to work for major telecom company in tulsa oklahoma. I was an authorized agent For them to sell aftermarket products for their phone systems. It was a great job. I was making really good money. And i found a thing in their computer system that would allow me to sell the renewal of warranties by creating contracts vans than them out in the mail and then they would come back in and then i would do had a follow up system and i was making mailbox money. You know several thousand dollars a month. That twenty three year old. That was it was more than i've ever seen they. They liked what i was doing so well that they took it away from me. Run it in house. Pay the minimum wage person to do it And sent me to a part of oklahoma where they didn't have phones. The cell phones I figured i'd messed up on my contract after talking to a lawyer and decided i wasn't let that happen to me again. I whatever normal human would do. I went to law school right. So you have kind of are titled as america's lead legal coach but one of the things that is a passion for you is getting people to understand that they need to change the way they think of having an attorney or lawyer so talk to us a little bit about that. Yeah so. I'm a. I'm a great example for that i had a little small business owes independent agent. I signed a contract with a major company and didn't have anyone read it first right and then i went to a lawyer when everything was horrible when the house was on fire instead said it helped me. And they're like they're you know there's nothing medical science can do for you. Sorry until i was out of luck have been Proactive and treated the lawyers as primary care and gone and ask for help beforehand. I wouldn't have made that mistake and Would have been able to stay with that company longer. I don't know how long but longer and it wouldn't have cost a lot of money and other business owners have been doing the same thing to me. I've been in practice. affects for twenty four years and for eight years. I've done things differently. But for a long time i played along with the game of reactive legal and everyone would come in when their house was on fire and they got famous and then we would find a way to fix it better. We really expensive. And they were upset at the end so in two thousand twelve. I'm like this is crazy. We have to find a better way to deliver legal services to small businesses hard. My first business coach and we are today now. We have on demand legal where people can be proactive. Where they like talking to their lawyer. you know. We have half hour conversations every month with our clients. Sometimes they go longer. They call me all the time just to talk. Sometimes they don't even have questions And it just completely changes the war. The changes the relationship. We're no longer adversarial. But they don't pay any by the minute. They know what they're getting. And they know that they have the ability to get good information fast and i think that that's a worry for especially a lot of people starting out in businesses. Yeah is going to be like you know the proverbial clock that gets hit. So what questions do i have to you. Know what questions. Can i ask in a short amount of amount of time But you talk to about some questions to ask about. you know. there's a lot of people like you said that will sign a contract because it's a bigger company they don't know any better And then of course after the signature goes on they have sort of that signers remorse so talk to us a little bit about that. Because i think that's something everybody's gone through eight questions to eliminate senator mortuary good through some of those questions. And i what. I've found That it's it's really easy Small stuff ever wanted missing up on You know it's not securities and really complex Corporate uc issues. It's the simple stuff. It's like this like you're asking about you know the first thing you wanna do when you look at a contract is make sure you know who the players are at the top of every contract or the section that contract is by in between or by obtaining them on these people or these companies and so you wanna make sure that if you have an llc corporation that you're entity is the one listed as the party not you personally. That's you know that's kinda mistake number one to avoid and then that the person or indicated signing it is also using their right capacity so then if it's if it's the corporation you wanna make sure they're in good standing and so you would wanna do of search on the computer. Make sure that they're in good standing with their state so that you know that you're dealing with a good entity right. That's that's the first thing because you gotta make sure you got assault to solid parties to contracts. You do that when the next thing is you wanna do is just ask you what what are the. What are the dollars that are involved in this contract. And then you just go through the contract and just take your highlighter and highlight everywhere. There's a dollar now and then make sure that those are the right dollars is what we discussed does work at my comfortable with it and if you are then you've answered that question that you can move on to the next question which is what are the dates. What are the day some deadlines involved in this contract highlight those and go through them and can you live with those dates. Can you perform the dates that it says you have to and can you. Can you wait for them to perform on the dates. Says they have to if the days are good Then you've gone through that check mark And the next thing you want to look at is what are the ways that we're gonna fight Yeah every every. Every contract is setting up if possible. Disputing the future. How we want to handle their to just go court and and fight it out or do we want to go to mediation. I recommend all of my clients that they added mediation clauses that. There's a place that you have to go to try to cool off before you get in the world and whether gatien So yeah you have to add to your contract when you're you have a check list looking for dollar signs dates and is there. Is there a dispute causing here so that if this thing goes sideways we get it. How a disagreement we have a way of resolving this other than having a judge jury of those are some of the easy questions that most on fears business owners. Don't think ask before they sign they. Just look at it and go. I don't understand any of the parties and the where twos and they're like sure okay. That sounds good. Yeah and i think that's important what you said i mean. Of course we wanna we wanna believe that everything that we go into is going to be a loving relationship were regardless of you know how that is but yeah i think you have to. You know you have to plan for for that or at least have something that you know. You know where where the steps are gonna go to. Yeah the in love. Void written agreements Because they they they up. They don't wanna do it And they're doing business with people they know especially Like in your world in the podcast world on the online world. Everyone kind of knows everybody. You're doing business with people that you kind of know like and trust in your life. What could go wrong. Well the relationship to go wrong. And so there's a written agreement is what keeps honest people honest until you want to have a document that's clear and clear and clean so you can go back to refresh memories without having to college other You know say your line. It's a look at inquiry mis remembering this go back and look at what we agreed and if it's an clear document that's just so much easier than having to dig through email or no. You said this well. I don't remember that right. I'm if i did say i didn't mean it. I don't remember that by having it in writing and they're really clear fashioned helps. And i really think most most contracts are too complicated. Some has to be But you need to try to boil it down to some of those simple terms and just make sure those are in there because if they're not there deal killers and i think that that is the worry for a lot of people right as you know if they think while if i have to do all of these contracts like that's going to cost me a lot of money to have somebody do it Or if they are trying to write something. It's so You know is. Is there such thing as being too simplistic in it. You know if they're writing it in their own terms. So i like the idea that you're saying you know of just changing the way you think of it as you know that having that person as almost like a team member as a necessity a you know an necessitated necessary tool in your kit to have review ourselves. Part of part of our clients. Eames we were. We were wiz now and we just processing. We call sharon routine businesses. They can be confident that it covered the legal bases the best. They can For the amount of money that they had been and that they can have mixed confident decisions when things go wrong that they got their milton with their house businesses shower that they can can and do you find that. This is something that you know. You should start off as soon as you're looking at going into business. 'cause i think sometimes people think well i. I should only start doing this once. I start really making it big kind of thing. Yeah as soon as you decided to business. You should give vice. It's a hobby okay. Elementary had insurance to avoid liability But if visit business if you're trying to make money then you wanna set it up right to start. It's very hard to go back in place down dacian under the. It's really the same legal words you wanna start started right build right and if you do that it makes all the difference so a lot of people do. They'll come back in a year later now. Wanted now all right and you can do it. It's more expensive And you've been really risking a lot In that time between you may not know for awhile. What was interesting because to have that out there. Another big mistake i see. Tanya is that people will build a grand in the first few years and then they make signed out that it was someone else's zoo the right steps of checking the name and trademark for it so that they can build confidence and they ended up having to go back and we grow old right which can be very costly. If you think about all of the well all of the time you put into that initial brand to start off with just just value times awfully you already. Two three years in greeley cost you lose levada customers. They didn't followed saul into your. Yeah and you actually have a story about a client that actually Was able to save over twenty thousand dollars for the ski shells. That story does an online fitness coach. And some other things related related to this list and there was an contracts that he kind of just kind of these Them a just lined up for access when the annual contract working and he had our team review it in washington it back we get demand. Mark them up and send them back in the idea. Is that some contracts are just with the are. No one's gonna change them but we want to to know so we marked 'em us we can see the problem areas remark those for him and then what he saw in the marquess he was he is he had signed. It would've cost him twenty thousand dollars so he ended up it was it was a it was a deal. Would they would not change deal. He walked away from it but walking away. He say twenty down to like. I mean i think everybody knows but looking at a contract. Sometimes it's hidden and you don't really see it and that's why you need somebody who has an eye for noticing those types of things also reportedly. You're the lawyer looking at contracts context and that's one of those things that we deal with year in our system as trying to scale scale business is i have all the contacts because i talked to. Almost everybody know more about their business. Anyone else so make trying to get all of our other legal experts ear up to speed on. The context is difficult because they don't understand but they don't understand exactly what these were doing than they may not read the contracts appropriately for somewhat. Listen he's okay contra By his lawyer as better than nothing. But if you don't have a relationship with them they're not going to know the nuances of what you do not understand the context and you could still make some mistakes so established that relationship with someone that you know like entrust make it consistent understand what you're doing. Then they can help them now. They can really help if they just looking at a document is it just a transactional approach. You're going to get some value. The not the same yet. it's never warriors really knows you personally. Your business inside. And i think that's true because even you know thinking back in in my own history that are some times that you know a contract in and of itself might have been a sound contract but didn't necessarily work with with my business or what my objective was so somebody looking at might go. Yes this is sound. i don't see any issues. But if they knew what the objective of my business or what my goals were than they might have said. This isn't this isn't in line with that. So i think yeah. That relationship is probably pretty key. Examples would be we have clients as the speaker woman. Speaker and cheese is on the Speaks a lot of christian women's groups big groups and works for this'll work for a major christian publication they sit in the contract and the context had morality clause in while one of our our team members saw. That was appalled that been routing clawson's contract didn't know the context and so a stripy. That happens in the another neces- expected with this company. There were were in their brand and we have to act a certain way the other concerts a. It's just it's recorded not just with illegal slide is the account side as well Life is about relationship the better the people that are under trained. No you know it should be doing your vision. Know how the nuance of how you word. The better they can help you. Don't know don't keep it. All secret teller wallace born on get people under seeing that are interested in you and know another. Tell us a little bit more about the book because you have a lot of information in this bucks a tell us a little bit more about what people can find in it. Yeah on the another part of the book is pocket about whether the contract what are the remedies kinda pre planning this transaction. So what happens if the other party doesn't do there's busted we can put that in the contract. What happens if i don't do what aspects to for whatever reason put that in the contract in the now in the third remedies and those are really important to have in and then want to have a clause in there about well if we get into its Who pays the cost of the dispute doesn't turn into these spots. Where here's another report. Question is where would this where with this happen and geography. I'm in texas business with someone that's in california is this contracting or texts say that and greenland because onnell's california prison the or any other snake That you wanna make sure you've got that Near easy things to blow by and is often negotiable with smaller companies fortune. Five hundred company. it is But was smaller. Companies were equal negotiating now a lot of times. This negotiable ask people in new the contract. This is hard and more stable to them. Most times ask the soften. It did not want to you. Don't have the right Tools in your tool bill. hyun jin. you're not gonna know when to bush back and not and you could make a bad agreement. The cost you sean. Twenty thousand dollars or anything. It's true it's that's even something that i wouldn't have thought of is is having that in you know with the way the world is going there so so much more reach that people are working with people in other countries so not knowing where that is if all of a sudden something goes wrong and guess where you're traveling and for good not for a vacation though it can make it where you couldn't afford to enforce new green right could really make you can't and Contracts we ride the. It's like everyone we know that. No one's ever gonna you miss because it would just be bad for business period You want to write them where you could reno's enforceable Someplace that you could go for Otherwise what's what's the point. But we try to. I try to Friendly contracts contracts should help Not hurt you Another thing with your entourage go to a lawyers very well. Meaning and will draft this really great contract. has lost cheap to it knowing the right miles simon in so you can't you can't lose the sale because has and then they're all upset wasn't lawyer didn't understand. The deal didn't rain you're trying to do. So you've gotta make sure you have an entrepreneurial lawyers trying to help you do more business as its has protection protections not worth again truisms right because then you're sort of defeating the purpose of why you started doing it all in the first place. So there's yeah well like you said then it all becomes about. Just what's written on the paper instead of the the bigger picture right and i've always had that philosophy of you know if if my clients the people i'm working with grow i grow so it needs to be something that's mutually beneficial Otherwise yeah why would anybody want to sign. It should have which it doesn't have to be served so dry being love our start with congratulations right and i think a lot of people think that it has to be that way right at has to be very methodical and very you know the whereas in where twos and all of that other stuff has to be in it to make it enforceable doesn't it could be really thinks it but of that can be Can have a rounded bringuier language. That help us business. And it's just time will has created in people don't do that especially enj- yeah so when When someone is looking they're like okay. I do this. A lot of our listeners are already in business so maybe some of them are sitting there going okay. This is not something. I i have done. What should they be. You know what are some of the things that you would say okay. Here's what you need to look for. Here's the questions you need to ask when looking for This this partnership that you're going to build us should yes. Oh you want to you. Want to talk to them one question. Do they work with a business coach. Is they work with a business coach. Then they they're actively trying to grow a business and they don't consider their what they're doing to be special not not as important you want. Someone thinks they're doing something similar arching better right and then you want to. You want to know what kind of other businesses resent no. because they're representing working five hundred companies unless you are for the company. They're not going to be helpful to you. You want someone. That's representing mom-and-pop pop shots people from zero to five million in revenue and adapter sweet spot and they They want to work with you. Want to know how they how they build their clients and this is really important. mulled traditional. The last fifty years lawyers bill by the hour right. So they you you meet within an call in. They hit attire murder in their billing us. Aikman's of every since nats which he can get really expensive and so you don't want that Ahead of i. i don't care whether rights instead of the rate knox said. I know how much time i want. And he was joking about it. But there's too much to it that you don't want your lawyer coffee with you. And they know in the back of their mind more money but spending more time on your project. There's a consulate. They don't want to admit it but there's a conflict sometimes. There's not a way round it in this. The best way to do project can wants lassie's so you wanna bring project and they you a quote for you incorporate. Okay that's two thousand dollars and if it takes more time than. They thought money if they can do they made money like all the rest us right or even better. They have some sort of subscription package where things are a certain injured keynote in your package like phone calls emails pets on certain documentary news lock human creation so that you know ahead of time i can. T services is lower. Cost me any more than what i paid. Months is not going to be surprises. November online I can i can. I can access these services not have to worry about money on my. Does the best unbiased do that. But we both we do. We'll do enough deals where she just wants this project. That's we'll do. That is not the must addition will do it will do that. So you want to nail that down you also want to know. Do they were by themselves. Do they have a team. How do you. How do you contact that. You get their cell phone in contestant or you have to go through the gatekeeper to get to now do they use. Do they use the scheduling. Wait so are you. You have you can save time whenever you need it or is it a caller reception. Go through that the two weeks. Now how does it. How does that work. How much how busy are they and how. What kind of attention can you get if you need. And and then Once you've done that if you're comfortable i think that's a really important thing. Is that the the more comfortable talking to them. The veterans of you meeting feeling like. Hey that someone that i could go i With and and enjoy my time with them than s someone that you want to consider hiring. If you don't like them you would want to be in the room with them. You don't want to them. Don't hire how far you're going to avoid that interaction. You want someone that you look forward to talking to enjoy the time and that you will feel cash. Investigators interest do those advised That'd be two way down the road to getting the right person. I'm not saying that it will be easy to find that person but there are other other lawyers out there that Do things a little differently. I consider myself to be illegal. Coach was my job is to just tell you do this but to try to help you understand why we want to do it that way to help you start thinking better from a legal perspective strategic reason that you can ask better questions and that we can make you a stronger better later. Not just how. Well i think too when you have that relationship and you can sor- sort of have more knowledge in that the way you're going to be handling the your business and the way you're going to be handling your growth is going to be different too because you also have that you know that base of knowledge so it makes it a little bit easier. You know going forward. I would imagine that growth. Definitely i mean had this conversation with fran oise than that But talking about the difference between having your own business in venus way and there's some people that are just better off being an employee. It's not it's not no one's better than the other two different. I think a lot of its personality base. But don't go into business if you aren't willing to read books. Listen to podcasts. Go to conferences Get to know people personally relationships if you don't wanna do that don't don't start or distance because that's very new works non done serving your clients and now you're trying to figure out. What do i have to do to get to the next level because in business you have to be before you can do before you can have to do. Those things attains work which which takes pong pets. Sure you can work smart but all of them require work and you have to More information in your head so that you can catch all of its the hebrew more in so you can clement's aims to take your vision to the judge to take your business to match up the vision that we have and if you're not only did it or yet Dumb go into business. It is not it is not a panacea. A lotta people. I find seder in business. And they're really just they just really have an extensive job or or a howard cartridge. My mentor would sater's slaves business. They don't have a business that could ever operate without them and don't have done you. Not they should right exactly. And i think that's it. I think that there is still too. You know still to this day. I think there's that cloud of You know being a business. Owner is easy. And i get to make my own hours and i get to do whatever i wanted to get into it. And they realized the reality is very much skewed from that especially in the first couple of years of business right because it is that that building. If you're not just securing job easy. Tommy just seems to realize every time you kind of get to glasgow. Then you're like okay. What's the next step and then next steps hard. It's a different hard but it's all hard you know. It's there's been times in my last night in shape physically uncomfortable. If i'm in good shape because i've been at the gym pushing. Wade's and it's are and i am eating sore afterward. But it's worth it. And i think being a business owner the things we're talking about great service that you often podcast butts all of the stuff. That's the heavy lifting that you do. plus pointed to your people whether their employees vendors. Have you got your team. You still have been effort there. It's it's just a lot more to it than having a great idea. And yeah exactly and i think that that's true. I think there is a difference between Somebody who owns a business and someone. Who's an entrepreneur. And i've always said that you know the entrepreneurs the one that's always like ooh look this is shiny and this is exciting and i love doing this you know. There's there's that excitement that goes along with it. But yeah i mean it's i think it's a constant struggle but i don't think of struggle as a bad thing i think it is something that's exciting and i don't ever wanna stop learning because you know i was talking with somebody who said you know. Once i start stopped learning. I feel like i'm going to start getting old and i'm not ready to get old yet.

This is the baseball tonight podcast for Monday, June seventeenth two thousand nineteen BUSTER, only, it's a baggage claim Monday and emit the beautiful Detroit airport making my way back in Los Angeles, and Josh macrey, Troy Farkas back in Bristol guys, real quick. Got a lot to talk about today, the Edwin Encarnacion trade, what do you think? First impressions BUSTER. I don't get it. I mean, Brian Cashman's a lot smarter than I am. That's for sure. But you look at the glut of outfielders that they have, and what they need. It certainly wouldn't be in other right handed power hitter, if he asked me Troy, I personally, like it. I mean, I'm always in the camp of do whatever you can't make your team better and Encarnacion has been raking and, you know, in terms of power numbers, and so they really didn't give a launch no cash considerations. All the is have is cash than one, then who is that? So I'm all for it. Well, it certainly got a lot of attention around baseball, and we're gonna be talking about it with Tim Kirk coming up that deal went down on Saturday on Sunday, the Yankees playing the White Sox. They win ten three with help from Brett Gardner. The middle basin. Scores. Here comes the throw is cut off Phil score. It's a big two months single Dorner and the Yankees take a two to one week. Michael k on the yes network. Now, you knew within Kurnaz Ian coming on board and John Carlos Stanton, Aaron judge coming back from the rehabilitation assignments that the Yankees are going to have to make some tough roster decisions. And on Sunday, they told Clint Frazier, he's headed back to the minor leagues to eighty three average eleven homers thirteen walks fifty nine strikeouts. Clint Frazier was surprised and he spoke to reporters surprised that this move was made this afternoon. Pretty surprised. What was the message Aaron Boone sent you? When he when he said, you're heading down. This is the reality of things, you know. So I guess I'm facing reality right now. Is that difficult to digest, so tough pill to swallow? Yeah. I mean, it's, it's never fun. Especially with how much I felt like I've contributed to this team this year. When they acquired and Carnasciali did you think that you could be a victim of the numbers game? Because of Encarnacion, but maybe because of judge Stanton. Do you feel you crewmen something in your time up here? Do you feel like you've shown what you wanted to? Yeah. Okay. Can Clinton feel like the numbers game may like you while you've short a major league future that it might not be here? Anything you might be a trade show. Traded once so, you know, who knows. I mean I can't control that I just try to play as good as I can to put myself in a good position. Meredith Moroccan bits of the network led that questioning guys. I think the word seething came to mind as I heard his responses to reporters. What about you guys are not clint's best day in listen? I can understand why it'd be frustrated, but certainly letting east bite well for them late very well. And so the fact that he's a little bit upset a little bit frustrated, and, and let that emotion show through I can't say Lehman. Aaron Boone, gave his perspective on this talked about how it's tough to deliver the news he's played a big role when on a winning team doesn't necessarily stop now but you know, this is where we're at from roster situation. So a so obviously tough news delivered. But, you know, hopefully, he can make the most of it and continue to get better at his craft and know that, you know he's gonna play a role for us again. What a crazy series and Colorado between the Padres and the Rockies they traded runs all weekend long on Sunday. The Padres were down by two runs at the top of the night ending. And this happened pitched to Garcia runners go by Dr left-center fail. That's basic that my role all the way to the wall. Manny Machado has scored hockey's. Bring it home buyers. And on the way to third Garcia. They get the throw one bounce no chance the ball game Friday legs. Gentlemen, padres. Peptide the ballgame again. How about the old pro? Oh, going to Colorado for that slugfest weekend. Josh verbal work of art by Ted Lightner on ninety seven point three the fan that rally continued for the Padres right hander gray at three to four Padre take. Hurry, pres Friday's history-making Padre comeback. Now. I gosh, I've coming into the night that down thirteen to ten. I wonder what that win probability was from sat cast and fan graphs and all that stuff and handle that because right now from down three in the ninth to started. They up won their first lead of the entire day. Including that fourteen to thirteen victory for the Padres on Sunday. The two teams combined for ninety two runs over the four-game series that broke the previous modern era record of eighty eight runs scored by the Phillies and dodgers over four games in nineteen twenty nine that according to the Elias sports bureau, the brewers beat the giants five to three with help from Christian yelich one, one pitch. And this is hit hard deep left center field racing. Back is Duggar.

The reds blew out the Rangers eleven three taking control early. Jesse Winker at a hand in that Bree to again. Driven into right center field. That'll get the job done. Waco off as way to second base it in there with a two RBI double the reds have the lead. That from the reds television network. The Red Sox beat the Orioles, eight six and along the way Raphael Denver's hit a long home run in the top of the tenth now the motion given steals home in a swing and a high hydride is center field, that ball, his hit, well Wilkerson Beck for the wall and gone.

If I remember correctly was measured four hundred and fifty four feet. We've talked a lot about just bell. And the fact that he's among the National League MVP candidates now he demonstrated again on Sunday. Why he's been so important to the pirates. Here's the pitch. Swing and a line drive to left field. And that gets down, and that's extra basis. Josh ballot. Just given the pirates the lead with an opposite field double that's RPI number sixty five to lead the major leagues. Pirates up by four the seven sports radio ninety three point seven the fan. The Indians beat the Tigers eight nothing behind Trevor Bauer look in recent weeks, Bowers, been slumping, maybe some questions among other teams about whether or not, this is going to his trade value, he probably reestablish some of that with what he did on Sunday, Bowers ready here it comes. Ballgame got up with a slider. And for the first time in his professional career Trevor Bauer what the complete game shutout and a masterpiece at that Jerry Franken the Indians manager spoke with reporters after the game about Bowers performance anytime you go out there and throw nine innings don't give up any runs you're doing doing loss thing, right? Early in the game you know, we piss around that leadoff triple, which at the time it was one game. And then from there, you just seem we got him some runs, and he really settled in and you can bet rival evaluators to be taken note of that performance the raise beat the angels, six to five Tommy fan helped out now. The to pitch swing drive. Let feel the deep Goodwin going back. Hobby Pam what his coma the year. It's a solo side with out zero the fifth and raise regain the lead day will six twenty WD. The cardinals edged the Mets for two three and I don't think any player as tortured in opponent, the way Paul D young has crushed the Mets this year. This is Paul the young score tied three all top the eighth frame one onto young as two home runs in the series. The wind inflections pitch swing and a high fly ball thebloodcenter fail back to the track. John Paul young gives the cardinals the lead four three in the eighth inning. Yeah. He's inherited the legacy of Chipper Jones, the way he's crushing the Mets these days and for the Mets, it seems like the right at a crossroads probably learn a lot in the next week to ten days about whether or not the Mets are going to be sellers before the trade deadline. The Braves are rolling. They had a great weekend against the Phillies on Sunday. They blew him out fifteen to one Josh Donaldson pitched in kunia Lincoln's to lead over at first base out my Hoskins Donaldson hits one div outdoors Ryan Jenner field is what back towards the law. This one is out of the ball. He found the sweet spot and kissed it goodbye. And the brain bond. Drawn is at it again. The Braves just keep on getting better and better and better that call from six eighty the fan. The day, the game of the day in Los Angeles Dodger Stadium. The dodgers and the cubs, and they've had a great series on Thursday and Friday, the dodgers won the cubs came back to win on Saturday. When Anthony Rizzo hit a late two run Homer, off kenley Jansen so on Sunday hundred reuse been arguably the best pitcher in baseball was amount on the mound for the dodgers. He was terrific, but he gave up a couple of honor and runs in the top of the sixth inning bottom of the sixth inning. This is what happened. Here's a swing and a high five all out towards centerfield out, Laura back track wall. Valley's will touch on Goldie with his twenty third shadows didn't bother of their we're tied up two and two. I was moved Shami the legend, on ESPN radio. It was still tied to all bottom of the eighth, any Russell Morton, hitting in the shadows. It Dodger Stadium men. He had some ugly. Looking swings barely failing the ball barely getting contact as his at bat continued against Steve seasick. This is what happened weights at the plate. See shack the to swinging ally base hit a left field and they're going to Santander. Here's a throw to the plate. Past the catcher diving? It safely is Taylor at it's three to Russell. Martin comes through after all, those uncomfortable swings RBI single to left and the dodgers taken three to lead while so kenley Jansen. Got the save on Friday night on Saturday. I mentioned Anthony Rizzo hit the home run off him to beat the dodgers and before the game on Sunday. Dave roberts. The dodgers manager told us he was going to give kenley Jansen another opportunity because kenley wanted to work through some of the issues that he had Janssen right away, runners got on base against them. This is what happened top of the ninth inning Janssen, reading the one on the way swing and a little tap, right side. Jhansi common home. Here's the throw the tag, the plane, I'll Bora gone down on a soft tack reverse base side of the Janssen gathered up. So at the strike to Russell by now Purdue go. Rookie centerfielder play a huge role in the ninth inning cubs. Heads second. Third two outs. Janssen kicks fires swinging wider centerfield author. Makes the catch the ball game. The dodgers is scape. Thanks to a couple of nights defensive plays including the game ender. Boop. Giambi ESPN radio, the legends to the dodgers take three out of four in that series today. We're going to hear from a hall of Famer we'd get cat talk. And of course, we got Tim courtship. Let's get to it seem heads. Rejoice noodle. Timmy, time is this great game or what with tin kurkin on baseball tonight and Tim cartoon covers baseball for USPS and Tim belated happy Father's Day to you? Well, thank you, and to you to stir. We had a great day at Bristol yesterday. When the kids get grown up and leave the house. It's not quite the same whether don't kidding around celebrated Father's Day. But it was still a really good day. Yeah. I'm starting to get a feel for that my nineteen year olds off, you know, in college freshman year being away from home. I absolutely hear you. Now you were very close with your dad, for sure. You know, I I over the weekend get a chance to talk with Dave Roberts about his father, and we were texting back and forth last week in advance is Sunday night baseball. And I asked him if he had some pictures, he could send me of his dad, and it was very interesting because he sent me made a mention in text about how he had spread some his dad's ashes just before game, one of the two thousand seventeen World Series at Dodger Stadium. And no, I when I saw him in person on Saturday, I followed up on that and he went on to tell me about how he'd had a long conversation with his his mother. After his father passed away. Wait a minute in the spring of two thousand seventeen and he was trying to think of ways to keep his father close to him. And so before game one two thousand seventeen one out to center field spread some his dad's ashes, and he also put some right near where he stands in the dodger dugout an and Tim, I, I, I was so touched by that story, and I had built Plaski of the LA times had made mention of it in a PC did in the spring of two thousand eighteen but, you know, how Davis and in Dave was, was so moving in telling that story. And I know you know him well I had you heard that story before. No. And that was a great column BUSTER. And I don't wanna be corvette is. But this whole father something especially really in baseball. I think more than the other sports just because of the connection you have with, with parents at such with your dad at such a young age. And that was really great. It was really revealing. And I believe we word of it that he, he takes his dad, you know, with him in into every game every night, given how close they were. So it was wonderful. I have all sorts of baseball stories about players and their dads, and I've written them all over the years because I, I like doing it because it really matters especially these baseball players. Right. Let's talk about the big trade over the weekend. N owned Karachi own goes from the Seattle Mariners to the Yankees from the perspective. They just looked at this is being a situation where they could get incur Nacional basically for nothing. Right. They took on a little bit of salary. The Mariners took on the bulk of the salary and they add a guy who leads the American League in home runs. And he joins a lineup where the guy who second the American League in home runs is already there, and Gary Sanchez and then in the days ahead, they're going to be getting back, Giancarlo Stanton, and Aaron judge in on the face of a Tim, I think no doubt this makes them a better regular season team in improve their chances to win the American League east got. But I gotta tell you, if I've been a Brian Cashman shoes, I would not have made this trade. I don't like how right handed ain't they increasingly become, I don't, like, the, the positional inflexibility that results from this gazette and chaos, you can only serve as a D H. He maybe could fill in at first base on an emerging. See, but he's, he's a D H at this point in his career and makes them a little bit slower. And of course, all the strikeouts Encarnacion and Stanton and judge last year combined for about five hundred and yes, they're going to my God, their games against the Orioles are going to be cover your is bad, and how they're going to beat up on a pitching staff like that. But what I look at, when I saw that trade was meant what about against Justin Verlander Garrett Cole in Charlie Morton, and Blake, snail in October, which is why I wouldn't have done it. What about you? Well, I would have done it for exactly the reason that you said, because you, you gave up purch- Lee nothing to do this, but the key phrase, you used BUSTER wise. This gives him a great regular season chance, the big difference is everything changes in October. And we saw last year the re the biggest reason that the Red Sox beat the Yankees last year is the Red Sox took. Tougher at that struck out fewer times put the ball in play more often. And that is still what the Yankees are going to have to battle with when October comes around is Stanton. What have stands in a bad spot? What even Aaron judge is in a bad spot, and you can pitch to those guys as great as they might be you look at that Astro lineup completely healthy and tell me which one would you rather have I take the Astro lineup just because there's a little bit more flexibility, lefty righty or guys who put it in play. I repeat I would have made this trade if I were the Yankees, get the division title helped me just blast everyone, but then there's going to have to be adjustment in October. Because you look at the teams that have won in the last few years, loyal Astros last year, the Red Sox. They were different to some degree than the other teams in the big leagues. They moved the ball around more. They put it in play more. They weren't. Not completely dependent on the Homer and some days of the mind that they're going at. Yeah. When I wrote out the lineup and what it would look like a actually reminded me a lot of the lineup that Incan Ascione was a part of in Toronto where you had this new group hitters who were prolific and they can do some serious damage when you're talking about at that time at Josh Donaldson Batista, an internal Sione Russell Martin. But then when they get into the big games, the fact that they were so right handed became a problem for them and other team unit other teams the lineup right hand relievers against him. And I have to believe as we move forward that for the other American League contenders. They'll be lining up on those right handers great sliders to beat this Yankee lineup. What do you think? Yeah. Yeah. And most of your other point was were equally of port is now you pretty much tied up to the with Edwin Encarnacion again, as baseball the last seven years, it's been as been really good. But I think you need to. The age for most teams and especially for the Yankees to give Gary Sanchez a day off from behind the plate. What is Stanton comes back, and he's not healthy enough to feel really comfortable in the outfield. Same with judge. I mean, they have all sorts of guys on that team that could use a day as D H, and you've already now got a slow moving primary age in England tonight C on. So I think there's a lot of stuff that air Boone, and that staff, and I have to look at to make sure everyone gets the chance to play. And everyone stays fresh without being trapped by everyday de age yet when Jean-Michel took control the Yankees when George Steinbrenner was suspended in nineteen ninety remember this. He wanted to focus on a on base percentage in be get back to having left handed hitting lineups because by that point, the had become more right handed Tim. I was saying about this lesson. I can't remember a Yankee lineup that right handed when you're talking about. DJ lemay. Hugh, and judge and Sanchez and Stanton. And Kurnaz Ian, g or shelhah and glacier Torres. You know, you're, you're the guys who are theoretically going to break up the string, right handed hitters or Aaron Hicks switch hitter, Didi gregorius, who's a left handed hitter. But there's not a lot of versatility in that group. Yeah. And bus your worries me a little bit 'cause they're not a little kid. I'm sure you let g did the same thing, which see this great line of this great team. First thing you would do as an eight year old is right down with their batting order, I'm going to be. And that's what I was doing yesterday with Encarnacion and just beaming like how great is this gonna be? And yet you have to look, way deeper than that righty lefty and how how teams now with all the information they have to approved the team that looks very similar from one to nine. All right. Let's look at the Mariners side of this is they continue to dump contracts or started last one or the Robinson canot and Tim their future payroll, obligations for the years ahead two thousand twenty sixty five million point five million dollars, and that doesn't include the three point seven five million. They're kicking in the back end of Robinson does contract year to year in two thousand twenty one their payroll vacations currently at forty one point five million Tim in two thousand twenty two the Mariners payroll allegations zero dollars. So I think we can safely say, at this point, the Mariners are going down the cubs Astros road of whether you want to call it rebuilding you wanna call a tanking. That's where they're headed. Well, they should be. Now. What this she, they're, they're happening? I locked up all the teams story out of teen in two and where they ended up and only two other teams have on below five hundred in a season in which they started thirteen and two or better, one of those teams, the, the eighty seven brewers fell under in July the other. The sixty six Indians fell under five hundred in September. The Mariners fell under five hundred on may. The tenth, we've never seen a freefall like this this early in the season in the history of baseball that some team starts out like that. And then falls this quickly. And at least the word is out now that they have to unload. And they have to start over this was the reminder that thirteen and two must have been some sort of a Mirage, and if I'm them I, I do the full rebuild now and get as many young kids in as you can, which means more trades ahead. Yeah. Kyle Seager you would assume. Wind up with another team. At some point if some contender, develops a series need at third base really interesting series over the weekend. I thought between the dodgers and the cubs I kind of the dodgers taking three at a four. They could've easily swept if Anthony Rizzo hadn't it that clutch, two run home run. Saturday, a couple of things jumped out to me. Tim, I got to see hunt Jin Ryu last night, pitch while to me right now when we talk about the best pitcher in the planet that's him the soft contact that he's generating is crazy. You know we we prepared all the stuff the numbers for him going into this game were unbelievable with runners in scoring position before last night. Opponents to for fifty four with one walk with runners going position in two outs over twenty six with no walks and is the game played out last night. It was like the cubs hitters. They could not get decent swings against them. Anything they hit it seemed like it was a fly. Blair's the bloopers ground ball. No one was hitting the ball hard against him. And you know based on my conversation with review on Saturday with awesome Barnes, who one of their catchers, you know, they talked about how this is someone who has complete command of four different pitches. And he executes them as awesome Barnes said, so perfectly that whenever he misses its away. It's off the plate. He never misses over the plate. And I think we saw that last night. Right. Plus your numbers are staggering. He has been the best pitcher in baseball this season. He has the lowest Sierra in baseball from two thousand eighteen in nineteen combined. When you're throwing thirty eight percent changeups, and you're in an era, where hitters are seeking hunting. Fastballs. They're swinging on oh this wing, and on pre oh, just in case they can get a fastball to hit because they see. So few of them comparatively to a few years ago, then you got a guy who's not. Only spot. That's fastball. But he's not throw often. He is the classic keeping everyone off balance. And never, forget the first bullpen he threw when he joined the dodgers, Rick Honeycutt I've known forever when I covered the Rangers of the eighties kind of just goes, wow. Does he know out of pitch? This is awesome bullpen. He watched them throw in the bullpen and was dazzled by his understanding of pitching that was. And now he understands that even better, he sharpened his stuff. He's finally healthy. And man, he is breathtaking to watch on a level where not overpowering, but even more impressive. How he gets people out this season. And he's part of a great rotation. They have a tremendous lineup. They have tremendous defensive efficiency staff seems excellent at defensive positioning. But I think what we saw with kenley Jansen over the weekend. Tim confirms the dodgers need some bullpen help and really important bullpen helped at least two pieces they need not only I think a left hander a guy like Brad hand, would make a lot of sense Sean Doolittle fleet Vasquez. We talked about last week, but they also need a right hander Tim after watching kenley Jansen with his stuff flattened out that Rizzo hits basically a cookie to old fastball. And then he struggled again last night to get through that ninth inning. I think they gotta get somebody who has. Experienced closing games in case kenley Jansen needs help. What do you think I agree with? You know, aren't Cory Seager cups back? If we'll be the only issue is how do we get people out late in the game? Which is still a big issue. Janson is just not the same pitcher was four years ago with that color that you just sit just dart across the strike zone and Anthony Rizzo took a step, you know he stands right on top of the plate. He backed off the plate in that at bat for the two run home for it said, you know, I'm not gonna let him get the now to the catcher. The buyer gets off the play here and see how this works. It's the ball in course is home run to ultimately win that game. But you could make one jesmyn like that, and see it so much better against can't give that consi- that the dodgers have to do something. I think they will do something. And you mentioned the too perfect candidate hand to do little and we'll find out after this week, whether do little is going to be available because. The nationals got the Phillies and then the Braves we're gonna have a whole lot more about their future. And with the way, the Indians, are even though they played very well lately, if they're in the habit of saving money. They have to boot Brad hand, and he could help an awful lot of people. Yeah. And the cubs will be getting Craig kimbrel back soon. He's going to make his first appearance for triple a Iowa on Tuesday nights, Dallas, kaikal will likely make his first start for the Braves against the nationals on Friday, Tim at a time when it looks like the Braves are ready to take off and run away from that division. Yeah. Car to an opponent of the brave the other day, he called them disgusting, and he meant it. It's disgusting that any team is that young and that talented and we see it all the time with a Kuni junior now often Ryan and others as the Albee's has been really good. But the way that, that they have really connected with some older guys Josh down to the great lately. Brian McCann critical guy in the clubhouse and got a big hit the other day on to FREDDY Freeman and bam Kimball. I really like what really down. I think they've already separated themselves that. Vision, I thought would be a fourteen race now doubt, raise and I think the clear team to beat now is braids with what they doubt in the last couple of weeks, your non Alvarez four homers in his first five games in the big leagues sit. At time when the Astros are without Jose altuve, and Carlos gray and George Springer week we lauded the Anki so much for surviving injuries to key guys early in the year. It I mean, the Astros certainly have earned that in your Alvarez looks like a guy who's going to be around for a long time. I talked with evaluate over the weekend who compared his swing to that of cliff Floyd. Remember the big left handed hitter, who has easy power and he said an impact right away. What have you seen him while quick that they create comparison for those that don't remember cliff Floyd that six five two thirty quick bad with the sound when it's the ball that too many other places? And that's what this kid got. I saw him in spring training. And I say this a lot, but he's huge he's gigantic, and he's so strong at that, that little that lineup with all, you know, the quality hitters they have there that could be spite their great pitching net could be the strength of their team when they get to October is what do you do with that lineup? Especially if this kid is now in the middle of it as a severe power threat. All right. Tim. Well enjoy ain't. No. You get a few days off. You get to be at home. Enjoy yourself there, I'm assuming gonna find a basketball court someplace, yes. Well, I will attempt at hardly call it off BUSTER Bill of writing a story. I'll tell you about the that is really caused the problem. All. Well, though, everything is good. And I'll see just get away from baggage claim for once. Thanks to the great thing about facts. They're proven like the fact that crude oil contains impurities or their base oil made from natural gas is ninety nine point five percent free of impurities in the fact that Pennzoil is the first and setting motor oil made from natural gas. Not crude oil. It gives you unbeatable engine protection. The proof is in the Pennzoil based on sequence for where test using e five W thirty available at pep boys. Martinez was elected into the hall of fame in January. He'll be inducted in July no of the weekend. He talked with Kevin winter about his life in baseball, Edgar Carmelo Martinez. A former player for the cubs who's the current manager for the on a league cubs, heat your cousin, how much of an impact did he have on your career? He has his impact was was big growing up, obviously with, with late together. And he's fine. Professional baseball before I did. And. You know, always you had love for the game. But when I was for the contract to sign as a professional baseball player. I thought the, the amount of money, I was get in wasn't enough for me to chance, seems I was going to school war again and also playing in the weekends I was doing well in Puerto Rico, but he he becomes convinced me that I should take a chance. And you know after we argue for a while, and I decided. Okay. I think I can I can think of chance the money, my the way back then not kind of what it is today to get started in your career. Now, is it? I know that's what I was offered was four thousand dollars. And, you know, like I said, I was going to college, I was war again. I had no car, you know. You know, everything was pretty comfortable for me when nog responsibilities. Right. And I, I thought it was a little bit of gamble at the time. But he you know, he, he knew he knew he said you, can you can make it you, you know, just take a chance. So you take that chance you're getting the four grand that you got to start. But it's still five years before you can make it to the bigs and make your major league debut how tough was that grind just to get to the big leagues. You know what's it was hard? But at the same time to me, it was like a journey in newest experience. I think I embrace that challenge. And I wasn't thinking so much about. Okay. I need to make it to the bigly Saudi field that brazier where I think some. Sometimes I see it in some players today that they have to. I felt like I was doing what I love. I enjoy every minute plane in the mind leaks, it was fun. And I think in part because I didn't feel that Frazier actually held me their form and in finding make it to the big leagues. See, you get to the big leagues you then become a designated cater events with someone like me, who grew up watching you. And as you your career went along, we know you as a designated hitter. Was it difficult to convince you to get out of the infield and take on that role as a D H? Yes, the began in when Luthor me about it. I, I wasn't ready for that. I wasn't expecting it. And since I was a kid. I always play on the field. I thought that I would go defensive players and I thought that was I mean anything goes wrong. Then I'm you know I could be out of the game. So I it was physical choice to me, but it worked out. I thought that the, the time when Luther homey, we have good good team. We have my flowers, good place, our base. And, and if I if they understand which was what Lou told me about, I need you to stay in the lineup and I thought that he was right. It was the right show. When you start making minute. Yes, it was the right choice and it's ironic because everyone remembers you as a D H, which means obviously, you're kidding. How much do you think your career change with the perception of the designated hitter? Let's see if I can. So that, you know, I think what it helps. I remember in nineteen ninety five was the was basically my first year as a full time the age. I had the best year. Yeah. Yeah. I know in nineteen ninety two I wanted to budding title has been good year, but ninety five was my best year anyone after the age. So after that, pretty much it was dispense was a me your, the and I couldn't complain I can complain. I mean I had my best here. I you know, stay healthy the whole year and you know, it's or Dame went into the play-off I didn't opted out is is. You know, I was Joseph stamps out to the age. Yeah. That's that's who you were after that season, and it's funny, it's funny you bring it up because I have right here, the play in one thousand nine hundred five. Here's. The way to the crew. Wait will be light. Body of lake tap set. Leave. It just continues. By clean. Whip down the left field. Why they are going crazy cake. No. The late Dave Niehaus Ed with the Cohen Mariners radio network. You still get goosebumps here in that. Yes. So ways you know it's great to hear you helps going play. And I mean, it's, it's Josie was probably the greatest moment is like a rear. So it's always exciting to listen to it. Did you ever think that junior had a chance to score on that play? Did you think he could? You know, I knew junior could junior very unique player. He's instinct were of the charge, and if almost like junior Kinan debate play like any none. Many player could do that. He has great instinct, and if somebody could have score it was junior. So I, I knew once the bowl wins into lithium foreigner that Jenner had a chance and he took a job. I think my thought is I think he has debated. He will say look to read the bad before make on to play the play. Did you at the time? Edgar realize just how important that hit was to the Seattle Mariners franchise. No time. I didn't even know. I mean we had a great team ninety five. This is the beginning of grade run for the organization and from here, I, I felt like we had deemed that we could have been in the play off, you know, or have a chance for years to come. And I thought that was the beginning of the gray. Ron, and I specked it I we're going to be in World Series but he's soon. So, but I didn't I mean that that the way that double became a big big far of them are in there. So we're going to say no, it certainly did. And it became one of the most memorable moments of my childhood, and you're right. Many of us who watch baseball follow baseball. We thought there would be more of those to come in bigger and better things. There never was but one. One moment, Edgar voice when Ken Griffey junior and his dad wound up playing together. What was that like for you sitting back and watching it being a part of it? Yeah, it was some as in, you know watching them interact during practice or in the game. And I mean, even more incredible was I don't think we'll ever happen again. It is when they win back to back home. Bronx outta high. Yup. And not only that, but he was like a similar homerun. They win. They both went list center feel it's almost identical on run. So it's it was incredible. I mean, almost impossible to locate that so it wasn't as in time for junior and his dad and for all of us that watch it. And whether. And growing mention you're headed to the hall of fame, and you're a member of the class of twenty nineteen in that class with you is the first unanimous player ever, and that would be Mariano Rivera. That's a guy you hit almost six hundred against Edgar how did you hit him and have that much success? When no one else in baseball really did. You know what sells like that. I never felt comfortable hit him. I guess Mariano and I remember thinking, don't dry to do much. You know, you throw hard in the mo- move away from you just tried to make solid conduct, and don't try to pull and the way that approach. I mean I didn't it wasn't like I hit a lot of home runs against him. But I will say well to make contact and against him because he you know, he was fearless. He knew is got her. What's his bitch, and anything China away from throwing that he threw it? I don't know probably it was like ninety percent of the time. Oh, yeah. So I knew what was coming is just trying to control myself and trying to demolish it really healthy. Good know how to formats against the knowing what's coming at gar, and then still being able to do it, especially when it was that guy throwing it. I it's it's what made the L separated. You from a lot of other people did your teammates ever ask for advice. Oh, did you ever give advice to your teammates on how to hit it? And if you tried do they ever say getaway dude? I'm trying to hit the ball. You know, they know what was going on. Guys. It's right there. You can hit it. They know what's coming. It's just, you know, he Moreno, what's amazing. He knew what to do and, you know against hitters and he's at their imagination, and he's. Fearless. It really makes him was yesterday. Does unanimous hall of Famer the first one ever? You got your speech ready. How's it coming along? It's dawn. It's finished. Yeah. I, I think it's probably mine are wakes and yeah, you'll have to practice and be ready for it and great stuff. Appreciate into congratulations on the hall of fame induction. Thank you. Thank you. Z team executive weekly a uniform and logo. Quiz, graphic artist who's worked me, Santa ballfields, all across America all around the world or at his website, tied Radim dot com and Todd as we were getting ready to an kicking around ideas for cap talk this. We just sent an Email copied you and I and in this he writes in this century of seeing the Astros, twins Blue Jays Orioles and brewers kind of go back to the throwback logos. And our caps on either a permanent or semi permanent basis, which major league baseball team would be best served to go back to the future permanently by recycling an old logo to once again make their primary look make it their primary look first off taught. Why do you think that this has happened? You seen sort of these throwback caps come in, in style. In baseball will BUSTER. I think it's happened across the spectrum in professional sports. You've seen it really in this millennium. Take place in the NBA. Think about the Golden State Warriors, who lost in the NBA finals the other night, the Philadelphia seventy Sixers went retro you could go. But go to hockey go to some teams in the fell. This has been a trend and I've got a couple of theories, but I'm gonna put it right out there in very unsettled times. I think people are looking for comfort food, mashed potatoes with a big dollop of gravy on top, especially in the post nine eleven world and this cut to the heart of what we're looking for in sports. We want something familiar and unchallenging at times. And sometimes it just makes sense. Yes. So we know Todd's the expert and we're not Josh. What does that does that all sound make sense does? I mean I hadn't thought of it that way, and in that context, but it definitely does make sense when you see uniforms and logos from your youth from your childhood that, that sense of nostalgia is real. And it does make you feel comfortable. There's no question about it. So yeah Todd for you. What, what teams might it be candidates to, to do this? Well, it's very interesting because after we went back and forth via Email. I literally pulled up a page of every major league club and I'm going to go down the line, and I'm going to omit some, but there aren't a whole lot left is all I'm gonna say, no teams like the Red Sox, the White Sox. The Indians who are wearing a see that they I wore in the nineteen twenties. Right. The Tigers aren't going retro because they look the same substantially as they have since Cobb wore the, the old English d go down the line, though, the royals have never changed the angels. Already went retro around the turn of the century. My hand goes up on this. The twins went there. I'm going to go down the line. Just rapid fire Yankees as the Mariners gonna go back to Josh's pitchfork. I have no idea. The raise could go with their fish. We haven't even gotten to the National League. So somebody else takeover. Yeah. I mean, I think when, when I propose this I assumed that I was going to get a hard time coming my way from both of you guys saying, oh, Josh, you want the, the upside down Trident permanently for the Mariners. Don't you don't you? I, I actually don't I think it works as kind of take that thing out of the closet, maybe once or twice a year. If there were a team to go back permanently to a throwback look laugh at me all you want, but I'd say it should be the Marlins go back to the F with the fish kind of circling around at jumping around it. I think that's a look that befits them best and get rid of the stupid nightclub. Look, I think the Marlins should go back to their original look permanently. Yeah. They're my right, not Florida. I'm sorry. Yeah. Say it again. I like Miami's current had. But I would say this and Todd CB back me up on this. If in fact, at some point, there's an expansion team goes to Montreal or some franchise moves much real. They gotta bring back the old logo. Yes, I'm very conflicted about this BUSTER. I've thought about this. I really have. And on the one hand, I say, you know, let the memories of why in the in the in the, you know, the great cemetery of baseball logos names. You know, just like you know, the, the nationals were never going to be the senators. They may look like them because of the w and not a lot of people remember them after all these years, but sometimes history, I, I am always be wilder when I think about the, the conundrum in Charlotte, in the NBA, right all Hornets, the Bob cats, the Charlotte's that, that the, the back to the Hornets, who are they, there's no straight line. I think about the Cleveland Browns on the ravens and all of that tortured history. And maybe we just need something. No, a new logo for the Expos to me would remind me of when the Yankees, brought in mascot dandy. And you'll remember that, right? Todd. You realize come on get out of here. Bring the bringing the let's go. Let's stay real. Maybe you don't call them the Expos, call them the Canadian so the UPS or something, absolutely. Your, your NBA discussion Todd reminded me of time. I almost made my wife's head explode because I was trying to explain to her that the Hornets are actually the Bob cats and the pelicans are the Hornets and the jazz are in Utah, but the jazz used to be in New Orleans. But the they were never the pelicans or the Hornets, although the Hornets did spend some time in Oklahoma City punctuate, you could punctuate that sentenced. You wave and say, but you know what the Browns of the Browns, the Browns the ravens though? I'm picturing Justice league when the giant whiteboard equation. It's a sign Stein. Like with these family trees that go nowhere. Yes, yes. Oh man. Okay. Well now with early confused. Those are right conditions for this week's logo quiz uniform quiz. What he got forced taught? We're going to go to a general question here. Philadelphia was recently revealed to be the site of the twenty twenty six all-star game. Here's this week's question. Philly's most recent all star game played in nineteen Ninety-six was notable for this fact. Is it a it was the last all star game for Ozzie Smith? Was it be? It was the last all star game you played on artificial turf. See neither team allowed a walk or d all of the above last AS g in Philly ninety six last all star game for Ozzy last all-star game to be played on artificial turf. Neither team allowed a walk all of the above. Wow. Boy, oh boy. Golly, I'm gonna go d-. What do you got Josh? So Todd just for clarification when you say artificial turf. Are you speaking exclusively of astroturf or any artificial surface? Astro. Then the answer is deal the above your both right? Yeah. Yes. Yeah. I'm starting to get on that roll like, you know, kind of like the seventy eight Yankees is they came back to run down your Red Sox. Todd that season they started get on a roll, and that's Ryan at this point. I got a winning streak. Building up just starting to get nervous BUSTER. Are you forgetting the fact that I got this one, right? As well. Short memory loss, sign speaking of nineteen Seventy-eight, a little short term memory loss going on for you. Yeah. Okay. Busters too busy booking. Here's a Celtic Philadelphia for the twenty twenty six of course down now. Did dynasty. If you go to is there something beyond the word dynasty. If you go to four straight years from winning the title took the Roman empire. Yeah, there we go employer. Todd thing for doing this. All right. Guess your tweets. Baggage claim Mondays also mean Bleacher tweets on the run BUSTER. So let's get to it. We got David Cooper up, I at D underscore, coops underscore seven says, hey BUSTER, with the Rockies blowing a couple of big leads against the Padres over the weekend. Do you think they could make a major move to fill that hole in their bullpen to compete for the wild card not a major move? I don't I don't think that they would spend resources that far behind the dodgers, when he talked to front office people, they say, yeah. If they feel like they can win division. They'll make a big aggressive moves. But not just for a while card spot. Jake Tilley is at Jake Tilly, fifteen says BUSTER, I've heard a lot of talk about Brad hand being available at the deadline, but the Indians are only a game and a half out of the second wildcard. Do you think the Indians as sellers talk is just a bit premature? No. And for the tag reason stated, I think front offices. Just do not place, a huge value on wild card and you know. Yeah second wildcard. I think is I mean, you hope that, that's the way that it would work out, but their chances of winning the division this point four percents. And so they are going to market Trevor Bauer and hand as we move forward. All right. We got this one, an interesting one from Matt van pelt at Matt van pelt, he says the blues just won the Stanley Cup, the raptors just won the NBA title, of course, going back to March and early April Virginia Cavaliers won the NCWA men's basketball title, all bit of a surprise who's your pick for a surprising World Series champion in twenty nineteen. Now, Josh back me up on this. I think I've made some stupid fixing the past. Okay. Yeah. Okay. It's it's established as fact that I made pretty stupid, fixing the past. I'm feeling very, very good about picking the Braves to make it to the World Series, this year to play the Houston Astros in, if the Atlanta Braves won the world, sued, your it wouldn't shock me because the way they can just keep getting better and better. What about you that certainly would fit Matt's question of being surprising pick, I think mine would be more surprising considering how we started the season. And I'm actually more confident in my pick than I am in your of the Braves. It's the Minnesota Twins. Nobody is stopping the Minnesota Twins this year and Rena bananas going to lead the parade. That would be my surprising World Series. Pick. Finally, Brian Caprio at Dino, caprine, a loved his question. He says, if you were to hit a redo button on any players career past or present that was barred by injuries or marred by injuries or didn't pan out like it was supposed to who would you choose. Man. There's so many Tony phonetically air force hit by in the eye by pitch when he's playing the red Sox's young player. You wonder about Dickie Thon. Herb score hit by a line drive on. He was with the Cleveland Indians. He was already one of the best pitchers in baseball when that happened. But I've always wondered about Mickey Mantle, and what how different he would have been if he hadn't slept on that, that sprinkler, head during the World Series when he was trying to get out of the way of Joe DiMaggio and a fly ball and basically wrecked his knee. Because all you ever heard every everything you read that making man old before, that injury Kurd was unbelievably fast where he was, timed at, and I Don, I don't necessarily believe the numbers, but apparently at one point he was time running your first base, like three point six seconds of not only was he powerful, but he was incredibly fast. And after that, he played with that heavy limp. And I've always wondered in a how amazing he would have been if not. For that. And I'll give me another one, too and this isn't in the same realm, but Ted Williams, essentially losing five seater during the course of his major league career to military service, and he made it very clear that was the most important thing he felt like he didn't it's life. But you do wonder where his numbers would have wound up if not for the time in mill in the military, no question about it, and not just five years. Five prime years, right there when he probably would have put out the best numbers of career. Absolutely. Thanks for those questions, keeping coming BUSTER. I think I just heard you pass a cinnabon. Please stop by and, and get me one of those an awful everybody when you're done in BUSTER hops on the plane. Make sure you go check out today's fantasy focus baseball podcast. Eric and tristen discussed the immediate production of your Don Alvarez and lay out their rest of season, expectations on some surprisingly productive pitchers to go. Check that out BUSTER, and you fly safe. Yeah. Today was really interesting because I find a nice really quiet. Would come and find me and then they start to look at you weird. Like why is this person talking about baseball to him? So, but anyway, they got they learned a lot about Edwin Encarnacion today. Why more makes sense? That's right. Exactly, what might thanks today to Edgar Martinez to Kevin winner. Also to Josh macrey, and Detroit Farkas back in Bristol. And who else am I giving Chin-yen Tim? I'd never forget him can't forget.

"Whoa. I know. We do have his face sitting in the same almost the same. This is kind of like that picture was taken pre Pinkai. Yeah. We need to get like a pink marker. Leftovers is left. I'm sure it eventually made its way to the other side, you think? Yeah. Controllable. Once you got one you touch one side and the other. Hey, you know, he is on Mexico. He should get some antibiotics. What do you think? Well, I mean, sure steroids, cheap security only forty six bucks when right out. So fares has got half the votes. How many votes does mine have Ron is third man. Just wasn't that great, man. I liked pretty Pinkus last place. Oh, isn't he didn't work at all breakfast? Jon Cryer, you saying that like I'm supposed to be impressed. You are damning junk cars had a good run. What's that chill? There's been on for four hundred years two and a half men on for forty years. So fifty one percent still for ferris day off the breakfast club. Twenty seven percent. I get that. If someone likes that. It's it's weird time getting seventeen fifteen percent now pretty only five percent of the vote. What's the guys for the poll was your favorite John Hughes movie from the eighties obviously with today being thirty five years ago? The breakfast club came out we decided to take a look at his other movies and Rogers poll always made possible by Buffalo Wild Wings. Wings, beer, sports. We should do. What's his name's Ingley? What's his name? Hang and lee-ing. Top-five Dingley angrily and life of pi. Tiger Brokeback mountain that's getting dicey. After that. I've seen one zero those because he did the hulk Barton which one the real bad when? That was the first time I've ever left a movie, I really it was so bad now to other one was pretty good. Actually, the second time. They did it right? Mark Ruffalo, no doesn't Hayden. Doesn't Hayden towards Ed Norton's talk. But he's the hulk right at Mark Ruffalo. Yeah, he is. But he hasn't had a standalone movie, I gotta get on. But you know, what has state loan what rush Raj dotty on me? But I was there. He's headline this morning with l z sitting in or somebody is presented by sprint. You don't know Kaku gentlemen, cockatiel duels, e so as you know, the Dallas Cowboys America's team. Yes. Most. Sizes and sporting one of his three D most in the NFL. I just said in sporting TV history. You just back the hell up and the Rams are facing August seventeenth Aloha stadium white in Hawaii. Now, I would've thought Hawaii Ida so far, blah, blah, blah, blah, apparently night tickets sold out in less than a day starting at thirty dollars each and into the secondary market had you gone and TicketMaster dot com. You could have gotten to see his lowest one forty six and the highest was thirty five hundred doesn't matter Rams fans are so passionate. We bought a bother. And now regard to Hawaii to watch them play. That was great. Thank you. Chris the Cowboys. Would you have thunk it? Yeah. Very preseason game would have sold out like that. If that's true. Then why the hell they move the Pro Bowl. Yes. Because it has nothing to do with the Pro Bowl. The reason I believe those numbers the reason I'm not the least bit surprised that that game got sold out as quickly as it did for the prices that it did is because when the Rams game back LA three seasons ago. Yeah. Three seasons ago. Yes. The cowboys. And the Rams the first game they had back. Here was preseason game. Number one at the Coliseum against the Dallas Cowboys, and there were ninety five thousand people in the Coliseum and most of them were there to see the Cowboys. But that's a that's a drive. Maybe short flight from Texas this Hawaii don't think it's from Texas. I think that they're here. I don't think that the Cowboys that most of the people at that calcium were not coming in from Dallas or from Texas. They were here in LA. I think the cowboy fans art in a white the Cowboys for I'm not a cowboy guy. Rodgers there. They're everywhere. Maybe we can go out there guys. We can get a lake or something like that. Let's get a lay or two. We think Travis I'd love to see the Rams and the couch wanna lay. Do you wanna lay the flower? Yeah. They're talking about what he's talking about. Just clarifying get off the plane. They're more listening made at work is right. He's in my ear telling me to be smart, and he didn't know how to. Five minutes before go. You need to talk about the ticket prices. And I'm like here. Did you know what I've discovered too busy writing? My lay joke, you write those jokes. Uh-huh. He was delayed. He needs a new staff there. With the staff, we didn't write that one dump it my job to edgy. You went too far and to get cut. I think the Cowboys if the Cowboys show up anywhere that's not an NFL regular city. Like just as a one off the Hawaii being the perfect example, the cowboy fans are everywhere, and they're gonna come out because it's why is there one chance to see it. You know, the Pro Bowl is gone to your point. I don't know why. Because the prob- the Pro Bowl, I know that they were trying to revitalize it trying to give it a little juice or whatever. And maybe if people didn't have to go maybe more guys would play. It's just you can't play football. If you're not going to tackle employees. It's it's it's silly to have a football game. You can have it in Honolulu. You could have an Orlando, Los Angeles Timbuktu. It doesn't matter if you can't tackle and block there's no football game. But this preseason football for better for worse. Israel, real football. They're hitting each other. It's football. So I if you wanna see it and your cowboy fan, this is your one shot. I'm not surprised at all. This is your one shot. He just happened to be in. Hawaii. Guess how many Cowboys are in the top one hundred most famous athletes right now. Yup. Zero Gazza's lie. They're in the top two million. Detroit. Now, it's getting personal like it. Like when it turns makes a turn like this. Affects him. Cowboy thing this sprint people's hotline. Again, this time it's Kyle Kyle. You're on the morning show. What's up? Hey. Hey, what's going on? I'm good, man. What's going on? Hey, you guys missed out sixteen candles is better than all those movies put together all those moves put together. Just because a number sixteen. Doesn't mean sixteen times better. You got some smart to say Grover. Wow. Grover cookie monster. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. And so right. The best John used movie, sixty candles. Great. John Hughes movie. What was it about? And everybody forgot about it. Because their system was getting married and only remember was what's his name, Jake. Ryan take Ryan. Yeah. Your knowledge since I just the things you're so. I don't know why remember certain things, but there are certain things. Right. Just nailed the plot. By the way, do you know what fares Bela day office about? No, I watched it the other day. Actually, did you watch paint. I hate them. Move me too. We should go to the morning. Did you hit that movie? This is why because she was getting put down because he was poor. But she lived in a house. He had a car. He the school every day when I was in high school I lived in a motel I had to walk to school. I was broke. I was brokered in joke, man. But I mean, she had all this other stuff, but he's crying 'cause he's poor come on, man. You ain't poor. If you living in the house and driving a car, you ain't poor. Zone segment reviewing movies. He's spot on this. And there's different kinds of poor. That's right. I guess she was poor for rich. My girl. Wasn't her dad can like a bomb didn't need to lay around the house to handle nothing. But I mean at the time I mean, do she work at the record store with Duckie death? Death. She had a job she had on. What you crying about quick crying? Well, that's all John Hughes movie. You look and you go, wait a minute. Now, you're living a pretty good life. But there's always angst. There's always a reason why the teenagers anger is not realize always reasons by not really I mean first day off. Girl. Someone forgot my birthday that's upsetting. Okay. Because you're not upset about it. Well, I mean, it's different for girl. You know, but I'm saying breakfast club. I mean that was a whole different setting. That was a whole different thing. That was great movie to Kyle. You're you're plugged into the John seen. What was your favorite breakfast club character reference? I like the nerd do. 'cause he's kinda funny. Anthony, Michael hall. Yeah. They start crying and all that stuff. I don't like the fact that the the the one do that the girl hated Molly ringwald Haiti jet Nelson. But then they end up getting together. That's that was confusing. But I kinda put that to the side because I thought it was great movie the great acting and all that other stuff down. And she secretly like. Got movie takes like it. Thank you, sir. Her. Rack up on love is John Hughes knowledge. Why did we want to recognize Chris? Shellman fit a minute. It's going on ten years still can shake the pastor. I guess I guess not Kyle was as plugged in. John Hughes movies is as. Remember that was impressive. The teenage thing though, that is really to be the funny part of all of his movies. It's like their lives are, you know, pretty decent. And like. Grew up. Who are? I'm like. Yeah. Girl. I don't really know what you have said about our dad was kind of a bump to like why was he laying around the house not doing anything and she had a job and she was upset and he was just kinda she's trying to lineup interviews for him. He wouldn't go kind of kind of a loser. Kind of. Definitely a loser. All right. So Steve Kerr saying that the warriors health is more important than making sure that they get that number one seed, and I that's always one of those things that when you hear that. It's like, oh when you start talking about things like that. I think the warriors might be the exception to the rule. I think that the warriors they did last year. They went on the road in the Houston in one game seven when they had to do it. I the warriors are not going to lose a series because they gotta play game seven on the road somewhere. They might lose a series. I wouldn't be shocked if they lost. But I don't feel like they're gonna lose because oh, you know, what they had to go to Denver to win that last game. They won the series because a health. Healthier and Houston Rockets laws Chris Paul. So let's just keep one hundred health is a big factor. Either way goes I just don't think what they wanna do is what happened in their semi three win season, which is had the tank it empty. Yeah. Or not even empty just realize where the regular season fits in terms of what your overall plans are. And the way they see there's no semaphore eight see that China avoid. So what does it matter? And when you look at Denver Denver is affect simile of them. And while Yokich is a nice player. Once that machine really gets going Denver doesn't have enough. They have enough to do well in a regular season. Just Milwaukee does just like a number of those other teams in the east dead had enough to win the regular season. But then when it come down to it, and you gotta face that, dude. Or in this case, you gotta face squad in then is it just is what it is. They're the best team and the best team can go on the road and win a game. I just. It just doesn't seem to me as long as their health. Yeah. Sure. Sure. That that's the great wildcard. If all of a sudden, Kevin Durant are Steph curry something happens to one of those guys. They're they're believe it or not they're fine without Katie. It is actually Steph that is proven season in season out as the player that they can't play without. Fine without Katie. Yes. No. Did he win? I hear you L three. With one of my buddies, we go back and forth about Steph and Katy all the time. And I always take Steph side in this. But Kevin Durant. They would be alive. They're not cooked. But they can't if they lose. Kevin durant? It changes everything. Kevin durant? Their best player. Steph might be their most important player which. Value. But Kevin Durant their best plan and those things are not one in the same. Right. Listen, the numbers the numbers when Steph doesn't play whether it's this season last season the season for that was stuff isn't healthy. Whether it this season last season. They're just not as good Katie can be healthy. They got Blute it out by thirty five points tonight Alice by Dallas. Yeah. There's your Luca Raj. Luke your guy year right there. Did he they they might not be trying to get the number one seed, but they have it right now. They're still the top seed in the Western Conference. All right. Whoa, jr. Says that the Lakers have a coach that they are interested in. We'll get into that next. Just because Chris. Grad just because Gregory Abbott. Yes. Shake you down Z. You know, this hit number one. I don't think I've ever heard the song. What I'm not surprised actually really don't never mind. I'm not surprised Kurbanov heterosexual. This. What did it? My girl watching you dangling, a carrot. Greg Abbott, Gregory, Gregory Addis? I Cohen, Greg. You can call them. I don't know why I have used this music knowledge, my hair like that. I just do. I knew the love interest in sixteen candles off the top my head thirty years later. So don't judge me? Don't I won't do. But at least. At least, oh, I've heard this. I know this part. Yeah. Beautiful. Is you wanna see him? He did have the pretty boy Hazel green. Yeah. Context. I think there there's video. It is. Oh, pretty nice like her. What does he mean by shake you down? I don't know. But what about the shakedown a you? And some guy on Twitter Elsie. What did you do? I do. I'm just trying to live my life. He probably had something in my boy. Let's see this his name here team underscore mats, or you might be British or something does the lot over the as no matches primarily who's the see his his avatar is not a picture of his face. But just as hands looking real strong. So I'm not gonna say anything offensive. Okay. Just be me up. Apparently, he seems to think that I say LeBron James quit. You didn't say that. I didn't think I said even fortunately though, Raj. So we have receipts we have the receipts. So team underscore Matt's. We're going to play what I said. And then we'll see whether or not you're right or I am. So you got to set up we're talking. This is not how we're talking. We're talking to practice in the break. I said if you didn't do it quit if LeBron quit, right? What's? And then a. Turn his mic off. I said that. So that was if he quit, right? We were talking because LeBron the jump off was the Brennan triple double last night. He had a quote, we're saying I owe to the fans I to the game. I always play the game hard. I always come out and do the best that I can to the basketball gods are always watching that was the quote, and we were having a conversation about how easy would have been for him to shut it down for the last part of the season because the Lakers are having a season where they're not gonna make the playoffs on and on and on and on and it would have been easy for him to shut it down. And that's where you said if he had done that you would have looked at it like quitting. And I said that it wasn't if he had done that which he did not take you Travis. Someone knows how to set something Travis Cajal set up that was the entire story Elsie and Trudeau need to have a setup show where they set up. I'm sitting here. Glass didn't set up. He gave you an entire recap. There's a difference when he said that set up any recap. Difference shut up laboratory. This is coming apart. You woke up. I never said anything. Day nada. How are you doing with your how you doing with your brackets? I'm down to three final four teams like yourself. I have let's see Sweet Sixteen one two three four five six seven eight. Nine ten eleven. I've eleven of the sixteen. How many do you have Elsie? I don't know. I don't even know who's in a speech sixteen makes it harder. Does make a hurt. Just give you a normal list. It didn't work like that. Just give me a list. There's no list the list for the Lakers, l z might be done to a single name. According to Adrian, whoa, generosity, if the Lakers make a coaching change that Jason Kidd might be at the top of the list, Jason Kidd for the next coach of the Lakers, potentially and it checks box number one for sure which is will the new head coach get along with LeBron. Do they have a relationship? Will there be some respect going from the player to the head coach and the answer? There is an unequivocal. Yes, that he's spoken very highly of Jason Kidd in the past. They were teammates on a dream team at one point. So that part certainly works. He has experiences is not his first job in the NBA two time NBA head coach who's met with you know. I wanna say some success or no success. He's a little bit under five hundred playoffs both teams. He's coach. So that's more than Lakers have done over the last five or six years. So Jason Kidd. It checks couple of the boxes right out of the gate. Lonzo that seems like he'd be the right guy to kind of get Lonzo on track it fits well there. Couple of question marks. Of course, number one being wise he available because he was fired some time ago, and he's still available. Why to if you talk to some of his former players, which I have the. Remarks regardless Xs and os on glowing as you would like them to be if you are to replace someone like Luke Walton who in my opinion is fairly decent exit. Does his problem was communicators matches to get guys the back? She by intensity for him to just as forgiveness guys to play their guts out every single night, they do periodically. But it wasn't night in a night. That's that was that's really my only criticism with him. Yeah. He didn't find a way to coach guys. Yeah. Basically, and Jason Kidd some to former players are spoken to said, he's not necessarily the best exit knows. But there's something about the fact that has Jay kit that just gives gravitas to what he says. And if he has a he has good supporting staff who are good exit knows, you can sure up where you're deficient at that is another I guess element of the Luke Walton demise. If he is to be gone, his assistant coaches didn't necessarily while anyone they didn't cover up his and fish deficiencies if anything supporting group for. For him as opposed to supporting group for the team success. If that makes eight mixing it does. And I think you're right. I think that the Xs and os. We've seen other guys that come into head coaching roles. And it's usually more guys that are little greener than Jason Kidd, Jason Kidd has some experience. But if you have an assistant coach that can be your ex that's fine. That's not unprecedented. The the part that I wonder about that great players. Oftentimes, do not make great coaches. And because they they get it on a level. That's almost just it's incredibly intuitive. That this is what this is how you're supposed to play. Just do it the right way. Well, Jason Kidd knows what the right way is a great example of this Ted Williams greatest hitter of all time. Arguably was arguably the worst manager in the history of major league base- players hated him. Nobody knew what he wanted from him. Because he just well, you know, I used to like do we're not Ted Williams. I don't know how to do it like that. I can't do it like that. And I'm always I don't wanna say skeptical, but whenever you have a player that comes in is just an extraordinarily talented player a transcendent player Jason kit is that it. Don't care that you can do it. I need to know that you can teach it that teaching it is more important than doing it. And I don't know if Jason Kip Kanter can I don't know why I think when when it comes to someone like Jason Kidd whose entire career has been defined with helping others. I think there's something there that tells me he knows how to coach guy that he won't be critical of the offense in terms of passing because as the Rossa standards right now, he's got a guy in a top ten insists on his squad. And he's got a young budding point guard. Lonzo ball who sees to the floor fairly well convincing guys to pass the ball. Make smart passes. Probably won't be the issue. The issue will likely be when it comes to Zo anyway, the motor no into kospi be on the attack. And I think that is something that he can encourage Zota do and doesn't necessarily as something. That's so far to reach that he won't be able to get him to play up to that level. Rob gronkowski is calling. It an NFL career retiring. What does it mean for the patriots offense? We'll tell you next. G O P P N. Do do you know this? I've heard it his Dan Ross. I'm coming out. Yeah. Oh, yeah. I knew that. But this is like a remix something like it is. It is. Twenty two years ago today. Life after death tain? Twenty two years. Math. Can't be right. Nineteen ninety-seven. That's twenty two years. Hey, you know, what I like we can note. What did you not see Johnny dockings kid in the tournament yesterday? Doc, helix to while he's in college not that old. Not that old. We did some math during the break. I have twelve Sweet Sixteen teams you have ten. Yes. So it's close. Close. I'm I'm gonna concern about my my road to the final four though. Will you have Kentucky plan Kentucky in the next round? That's a problem, I fix that. Didn't. Yeah. I did their picked Houston doesn't. It's not what that says. Well, as you know, we need copy editing and have our copy editors notice that when I thought out the first time, they wanna notice had give you the east selection that you left blank that you just filled just feel because you had the two right teams in the Sweet Sixteen. So that one I'm all right with but you can't just retroactively ratio Kentucky versus Kentucky pick. All right, fine. I don't need it on a seven. Then how about that? Without kentucky. Get the actual Kentucky Kentucky. So you get ten. All right, fine. Rob gronkowski is retired twenty nine years old. He's done nine NFL seasons. Three championships for all pros, five pro bowls. Those are all the accolades they're gonna make him a hall of Famer he's a deadlock cinch NFL hall of Famer he's arguably the greatest tight end in NFL history. You can argue Tony Gonzales Tonio gates or other guys you can pick and you won't be wrong. But gronk one of those guys you can pick and make a compelling argument as well. The number though that kind of jumps out at me he missed twenty nine games in nine seasons. Can you beat the best? If you missed a mini game. Yeah. And that's that's the council of number counter for sure for sure. But when he played there was nobody that did it any better. But I'm just talking about his body has to be just a wreck. I mean, he of his nineties missed two full seasons just three games shy of two full seasons because he had injuries and not just little nagging little things that make. I mean, he had a broken arm that got. Terribly infected. He's had a bunch of really significant injuries in his career. Yeah. But for some reason, not a no maybe because Jason Witten may because I've been around enough athlete. So that caliber to know the mentality when he reached the particular point he knows he's not done. He knows they priced to have something left in the tank. It's just that he's beaten up as you said he's tired, and he just doesn't feel it right now. But something happens when you smell that wet grass something happens when there's a slight chill in the air and your body because it's so used to this climatic sort of indicator then it's time for football that win a kicks in. I just wonder if he smells the grass he feels a crisp in the air, if he sees a slight change in colors and some northeastern lease that he doesn't go. I wanna come back put it this way. I I'm not taking it off the board. If he came back. I would not be surprised at all. But unlike Jason Witten, Jason Whittingham, even though he walked right in the Monday night football booth in had a not just a job and something to do, but incredibly high profile job on top of that Jason Witten seems to me a guy and I've never spoken to the guy. So I'm just talking from a distance here. But Jason Witten seems to me that guy that is about football football football football and being away from football was what you just described and even being in the booth on Monday nights did not scratch that each of playing football for Jason win. Rob gronkowski seems to me a guy that has other things that he's interested in doing that has other things that are going to stimulate him away from football, whether it's being goofball. Whether it's being a wrestler, whatever it is that I think rob gronkowski's persona is part put on I think it's very manufactured and created and curated I don't know. I think he'll. Miss football. He did it at such a high level for such a high such a long time. But I wouldn't be surprised if he's one of those guys that does have other things that stimulate him enough to where I don't have to go back and do that. Yeah. I don't think it is a half too. I just think you would be I think at twenty nine thirty is different than retiring at thirty three that he's not even thirty. Yeah. And when your body's allowed to just kinda wrestle at a bit longer, even if you decide to come back in the middle of the season, he'll be fresher, and it just have a different sort of approach. I agree with you. He certainly have other things going on the caricature of himself is one that he can monetize an variety ways be at films. Be you know, WWE beat a pitch man, depending upon the product like a man state dot com. For instance, you can probably do that and do really well because he'd get that sort of personality. Right. But I just feel my gut tells me. That if you're a hall of Famer in an all time, great, and you're forced to retire twenty nine if you're healthy, you may get that scratch, again, here's another item that tilted more back towards what you are saying his agent to Rosenhaus says that he wouldn't be surprised if he comes back, so they're already planning that seed, then the odds are he might be coming back. Maybe he just wants a break from old Bill for minute that he knows he can walk back in in the middle of the season. And he knows the playbook. He knows this games. He knows how to deal with Bill when he does come back, but I just need a minute away from this. I don't need to go through a camp with your deal. I don't need to go through this thing where I'm not allowed to talk to anybody for four months or five months or over long. They're on lockdown. Once the season starts that. Maybe he wants to live his life. And once they get into double digits in the season, or whatever he's allowed to come back or whatever it is come back and help you guys make another run to the Super Bowl. Maybe you know. I mean, I don't know how he feels about bills sort of impact on team coaching. What he allows what he doesn't allow whatever it is gronkowski seems to find a good balance where he. Can still make Bill happy while still having this larger than life personality away from the football. So whatever balance these struck seem to be satisfactory. I don't know what more gronk could do away from -bility hasn't already accomplished with Bill. No Clayton Kershaw. No Walker bueller for opening day. But the dodgers do know who's going to be on the bump. We'll tell you next. Happy birthday angrily. Man out. We never talked about with Al Chris. Yes, is that was very well. Not exactly ended four seasons twenty nine years ago. I don't really remember. But I remember being we've talked about this is the oddest flashback, by the way Alf deal like the joke an show was that Alf kept trying to eat the cat. Well, I mean that was the bit that was the bit like everytime. They house cat would go through alpha tried to give her a lot of bit. So that was the that was like Allsteel though, trying to catch the cat. A lot of us are trying to catch the we while you. Remember when he called Reagan? Don't remember that don't that was a good episode was the president at the time. Crazy good show. Now, even though I just hope Chris like because he referenced Lila shows kind kinda bad. It wasn't good. It was a good bit. But why is it remembered that's weird thing because I think it was classic making us. Remember, no, it was weird. I mean think about all the different things they've done on network television sitcoms and whatnot. This is one of the only shows that ever had like a rubber puppet. It was the star of the show. There was the Muppets. Yeah. But those prime time this is a primetime NBC. Right before. And the Muppets were its own thing where they were all puppets with this was like just a normal family that had a rubber puppet alien that tried to eat the cat. Yeah. It was an alien alien A L F Ilian life on of Jeff Katz came up with this. I don't know. Maybe God bless eighty six to ninety not not yet winning awards. That's where you went. We just told you a great show. There was a rubber alien. Did it went any awards guys? I'm pretty sure friends when it wards, and I wasn't a great show either in like that show. The dodgers have announced their opening day starter ELS e and we knew it wasn't going to be Clayton Kershaw. We knew wasn't going to be Walker. Bueller? What we now know is that it's going to be done. Jin Ryu is going to be their opening day starter, and he's a really good. He he's one of those guys because Kershaw has a hall of Famer because Walker Buehler's the next big thing. And Julio is a guy that was the next big thing before Walker. Buehler was the next big thing. Rich Hill's been around the block a million times when he's right. He's a really really good. You almost forget that review has been awesome. Now, he doesn't he's not healthy ton. But when he pitches, I mean, his career he's forty and twenty eight with an era of three point two. That's legit. No is a perfect choice from a baseball perspective to start because you you wrote a not a guy who's probably going to win. He's a pitcher who was on fire to second half of last season. For sure. Personally, though, just some the narrative perspective storyteller in me just thought an opportunity for us to come in and announced I'm back, and I'm healthy. And I'm still part of the future. And just feels better to me, not the real isn't part of future. He signed a two year deal. I think he was one of those guys that sign one of those qualifying offer which almost never ever never had in by the way in retrospect, probably pretty smart. We've seen the glass Dallas kaikal if he would have liked to qualifying offer seriously, still free. I unless I missed it this weekend. I don't think I did. Yes. Dear. Mr. dodgers kick that tire. Kimbrell to he still. Well, I'm okay with him being free is. Kyko. I mean, pretty good pitcher damn good pitcher. I'm not sure what he's asking for. But anyway, just my narrative perspective I just wanted to see him start to season. And I mean, it's not like he's not a be still. It's not like he's not listed as one of our starting pitchers. But you know, what it is? I haven't given. I haven't gone through all thirty major league baseball teams. But off the top of my head. I that you if you are on any of the thirty teams in major league baseball. He's the opening day starter for at least eighteen or Twenty-one. He's that good. Of course. Of course, he is. And as I said, I have no problem from baseball perspective with him being opening day pitcher at all I just wanted to be able to congratulate the young man from coming back from injury. Because last season we kinda snuck him in the playoffs and because well he pitched well, but because we were in the play trying to get a World Series. That was the story all the time as opposed to. Oh my God. He's back, and he's still got really good stuff. We'll remember when they brought him up the first time two years ago, and he was nineteen and he was eating. He was. The next big thing. Like, okay. This is the guys left handed. He throws one hundred miles an hour filthy. He's got great makeup for a kid this, and he came in with massive expectations huge expectations. And he was good. Not great. And it was kinda one of those. Okay. Needs a little more season. They sent him back down. And then he got that. He was able to come back last year in the environment that you just described with more less no expectations. Just the only thing is hoping for him at that point was let's just hope he's healthy. Right. Any was. And then he's really good. I and I wonder if this doesn't fall into the same category of, you know, we're not putting the expectation of your the opening day guy. He's still a young kid. It's just you're gonna pitch you're gonna pitch a lot for us. But we'll get you games. Two through whatever we're going to give this reuse been around the block a bunch of times he's been in moments like this. I don't know if this isn't the best of both worlds that you still get a frontline guy, which were you is depict that first game and aureus doesn't have to carry the water of being. Oh, you're the first guy that starting an opener since Kershaw a million years. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, you're you're absolutely. About that is just you know, just a storyteller. I mean, that's all and the speaking of storytelling, one of the reasons why were you is pitching is. Because the other guys hurt not Kershaw hill. Yeah. I mean that it's just like that's par for the course gets hurt a lot. He does does get turtle lot. That's just that's when you ever chilling team. You know that when he pitches he's going to be really really good, and he's not gonna pitch as much as you might like because you're gonna be that's just the reality of having him on your roster. Now, the good news is that the dodgers are one of the few teams that can weather something like this. I mean Clayton Kershaw who they're paying thirty three million dollars to is unavailable. Start the opener in its that's fine. Right. Walker? Buehler. Who is their number one guy and is been pushed back sprinters like. Yeah. Whatever. It's okay. Because you got stripling you have hill when he's ready to go. You have you have you have Majeida? You have all these guys that. I mean, you when everybody's right. You could arguably have eight guys that you could put in a must win situation. Feel pretty damn good about it. Yeah. Most teams don't have three. We had fantastic pitching the last couple of seasons. A story line that gives overshadow for a couple reasons. One the first run to the playoffs to the World Series. We had unexpected joy of Kalita, and we're like going holy cow. Where did he come from, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. And so it's all about him all about him out about him pitching overshadow in the way, we talked about the dodgers last season. It was all about oh Matt Kemp at the beginning season. He's still got stuff Levin, then who's this mex- Muncie guy? And now channel my God. We got Machado. And once again, the narrative of the pitching was overshadow. Hopefully this year is even not us fact that our pitching's outstanding. It's deep and deep. Yeah. It it's the depth of it. That is is really sure you know, what the story is going to be this year. And it's not gonna be the pitching, Cory Seager. It's they lost Manny Machado loss teams. Like a exactly the this is not a they pursued him in Manny Machado opted to go to San Diego. This was a World Series ends shake hands. Look them in the is it many. Thank you for everything. Thank you. We wouldn't be here. Without you. Really? Appreciate everything you've done. Good luck. Have fun Petco. Right. Right. That that's not a good. That's going to be. Corsi? If Cory Seager when the MVP only it'd be shocked. He's that good of a player. No, no. We wouldn't be shocked. We make it back to third straight World Series, though. Even with a healthy pitching rotation. Even with Seger teams still making the three World Series in around. It's very very rare. And I forced to pick. I think I would agree with you. But then a hairs what I'll flow who's better in the National League than them. I don't I don't know if there's a team that's better just on paper. And that doesn't mean a whole bunch, but at the jump I don't know if there's anybody maybe the cubs are on equal footing a threat to our through good the Phillies should be better with Bryce Harper. They seem to be on the ascent at the end of last season. But the dodgers are certainly no worse than any other team in the National League at least on paper. I would agree with that. All right, Lonzo he cut ties with the big baller brand. This mean first career, we'll tell you next.

Postseason Preview: 5th or 8th seed, Ryu or Walker (Ep. 87)

"Took. Warm welcome to episode eighty seven of section. One, thirty eight. I'm your host Mark Collie as always I'm joined by Bryson Jacob how're you guys? I am doing great. How are you? I'm very good. It's been an amazing week. What about you Jacob? I was GONNA say the same thing it's it's hard to feel bad when you know your teams in the playoffs now. It's been insane the blue jays clinching spot in the postseason for the first time since two thousand sixteen. And they're not done yet they can still advance seating. They could get all the way as high as fifth seed in the American League. They just blew out the Orioles yesterday they've been on fire. It's been so much fun to watch this team and actually have a team go back to the postseason for as I said, the first time in four years a long four years but we're finally here and it feels so good to have a team that's actually competing. It does feel really good to have a team that's competing and. This is something that was part of were going into a shortened season. This is something that all of us kind of. Kind of knew that it was more possible than it would have been in regular season and I'll say it again Jacob was the one who actually predicted it from the Gecko mark you and I were both skeptical and You know I think we eventually got more optimistic as it went on but could also Jacob for believing that they'd be in a playoff spot prior to game one. Up that. Awful weakened in Tampa Bay I remember how stressful that was with all. It's just crazy to see where they were two months ago in the the best for was, it was only two months ago and an Ab- an irregular baseball season that would feel like yesterday but almost it does feel like yesterday and it's been two months and it's crazy to see. How quickly this season really did fly by in a sixty game season and with the Blue Jays win, they have currently or I guess the seating where they currently set currently are the last last seed in the American league. But of course, that is all subjective possibly change. The one thing we do know for sure they will be one of the playoffs but. We don't know for sure who they'd be playing even if they finishes the eighth seed, it's not guaranteed to be Tampa I believe and on the bright side of the Jays early, only one game behind the Yankees. So it's also possible the Jays could potentially pass them this weekend. And that would be huge if they did because if the Jays did. they would. They would be still DJ's would still be in a good spot. They would probably jumped the fifth seed and You know there's more other teams that the potentially play Lake. CLEVELAND. MAYBE MINNESOTA. There's a whole bunch of things that can still pan out this weekend. So it's not even for sure where we're going to be going for the or who they're going to be playing for the postseason. It's crazy to see how you know just just how exciting the game really was on. On Thursday you know, obviously, no fans maybe ruins a little bit of the hype. And maybe the fact that they're not even Toronto. Also ruins the hype because obviously going back to two, thousand, Fifteen, twenty, sixteen, I'm sure you guys can relate saying you know those two years obviously a lot more exciting than this year but there still is excitement for this year and this this year is excitement a little bit different just because of all the hurdles, this team really had to go through the rest you know hurdles that really the will be another fans or across the game that aren't fans the Blue Jays really understood what they had to go what? They had to go up against going to the biggest factor was a they had no home they were denied in Pittsburgh, there were probably going to be denied in Baltimore they had no home after two weeks of the season they had to open up at visitors or visitors ballparks, the home team, and then they eventually were you know decided to go to buffalo and they had to renovate Salem field in buffalo in just over two weeks and you know the biggest part about it as well as it's a minor league complex and that's where the Jays. Spent their their season and It's crazy to believe how it successful went from them just because of how difficult it looked at it I'm sure it was difficult but the fact that you know it shows how strong of a team they really are how close of a team they are great leadership. They had probably going through the coaching staff through the rest of the players they managed everything workout and the team itself on paper we knew that was going to. Be a lot better and the addition of Henry. You probably was one of the final pieces to say this part of the future we know the lineup we know the future of the line of we know players like having Bijou Boba, Shad Vladimir Grow Jenner, who's been on fire the past few games in particular, and even you know throughout the list like Taos commander who is still probably the most consistent around this team. This year I lord of Scurry Al there's so many names. And there's there's recent additions like Alejandro Kirk who has been on fire since being activated and he hasn't played a game other than in single as so just things like that to really take in really to understand how special team. This season really wasn't I while the season alone just how unpredictable it could have been throughout the rest of the major leagues and you know it's it's easy. It's no debate that if they were in Toronto and there would be fans here or there would be a lot more buzz than they are getting but I think once Tuesday hits I think that's when they're going to be having the full. Country behind them. I think that's when you're going to be hearing even more about them as. You know as the playoffs approach because plate nothing is more exciting than to watch playoff baseball and the one thing we do know is as much as it won't make a difference maybe it will a little bit There is supposed to be fans at some of the Games in the bubble in whether it's going to be in San Diego, La Arlington or I should say the new Texas Rangers Stadium, and in Houston there are plans to have fans in a neutral site which would be odd but I guess it would be a fun road trip for. People who live in the states definitely, not worth to quarantine up in Canada as of now especially for a wildcard round, but it's going to get exciting. And like I said, playoff baseball is probably one of the most exciting things to watch unfortunately. Won't be as normal. The one thing to kind of took. Things away was the champagne showers were kinda band throughout the rest throughout the whole game, and that's kind of like a ritual for any team that would clinch a playoff position or win wins any sort of playoff round including a wildcard round it's. It's a really fun time to be a fan and this team potentially could do damage in the playoffs. You know I'm I know a lot of people are a little bit skeptical of who they might be playing like the Tampa Bay. Rays. The Chicago. White SOX MAYBE THE MINNESOTA TWINS MAYBE CLEVELAND. But don't rule out as they've been in a lot of share and the past few and the past week alone they've kind of rebounded from what they were their struggles few weeks ago in particular New York against the Yankees, the the Jason really kind of turned it around and they're really heading into the playoffs with strong momentum. It's It honestly is just it's crazy to think that they actually made the playoffs and. It's just been such a an interesting season like you said, Bryson, they didn't know whether homeless going to be. You know they started the season with. A, three week road trip even though they. Really. Were hoping to stay in Toronto It's been such an such a weird year on and off the field Just. But I think. To see teen clicking together so well has definitely helped them. If you've listened to any broadcasts. Of the Blue Jays Games. You've definitely heard Buck Martinez. Dan Schulman talking about how close of a team this is and A lot of that is because a summer camp they stayed in Toronto together. They just stayed in the Rogers Centre because of the hotel they didn't go anywhere and. To See this team. Clicking and They play for each other I think that's the best way to put it I. Think Buck Martinez. Has said that a million times they don't they don't play to win as you know. To win as a blue Jay they played a win for their fellow teammates and I. think that's honestly the best part because they're all picking each other up and One thing. That's honestly. Really interesting to see whenever the. Show videos are the cameras during the broadcast pointed towards the the Blue Jays dugout. You always see guys talking together and it's not like it's just Bijard you know Taos Hernandez and no Danny chances are just a few guys talking together. They're all communicating together and you can tell this is really just a big. a big group with of chemistry and it's awesome. They're playing four each other like I said. They're a good team I don't think you know we can show away from that anymore they they had their ace like you said in hundred real They unfortunately lost their closer for this year and. Is Probably. GonNa say probably he's gone for next year unfortunately with his with his Tommy John Surgery but they've had a lot of breakout years like you mentioned Oscar? Hernandez. Finally. I've been fond of him ever since he came to the blue. Jays, from Houston he's struggled the last couple years especially with his strikeouts and pitches down and away in his own but he's definitely been really good this year You know we've seen guys like. In bijl even though with percents injury, he's you know he's really come into his own. We've seen Alejandro Kirke. I think he solidifies the catching position for the Blue Jays because we've seen. Maguire he you know unfortunately was awful this year and he couldn't throw runners out. He was hitting under one hundred if I'm not mistaken whereas now. They have the catcher who is really taking the world by storm after literally not playing. Above all are you know? So it's it's just it's crazy to see. All of these? Fake unlikely scenario is really working out for the team. and honestly, I don't think you can count them out I. Think we're GonNa get to this later but I think the Blue Jays can compete with anybody in the American League right now. Do you think they're going to win the world? Series? Not Really I don't think that's where they are right now but. I don't know why they can't compete with the raise if that's who they are even if up against even if they're the number one seed in the blue, Jays are the eight seed I think they can compete with anybody and I think this team believes they can compete with anybody and. It's fun I mean their first game is I believe on Tuesday in. At the trump. So now I'm counting the days down I mean it's there's still two more games in the season and I mean things could change if with the the Yankees lost last night to the to the Miami Marlins and the Blue Jays one. So if the Yankees lose either today or tomorrow and the Blue Jays, win both their games and obviously the standings are GonNa change a little bit but. You know I think regardless of what the Blue Jays play I I kinda would prefer the raise just because of the familiarity but I think this team believes they could beat anybody and it's it's a fun time to be Bluejays Fan I've said this from the start ever since the expanded playoffs were announced that I think they could actually make the playoffs and now that they have qualified it's It's it's a great feeling and you know with especially in Toronto with the disappointments that the other two teams. Had this year in the playoffs I, think the Blue Jays as kind of an underdog it's just It's awesome and I think this definitely ahead of schedule I'm not complaining about that I. Think That's awesome and issue. It's a great time to be a bluejays fan and you know especially after that bad week that they had the week prior where they lost six straight everyone was like, oh, this is this is not good but they've shown us that, hey, you know what? Might, be down at times. You might not have a home for the first three weeks who might lose six straight games might lose are closer. We might do might have anything bad. But Hey, we're not gonNA we're not going to give up on ourselves. It's just it's great to see Jacob you deserve the right to break all. You want you've been right the whole time. And I was wrong I thought they wouldn't make the postseason but yeah, it is been incredible to see this team i. mean they are something else even though you know they make mistakes all the time and we can criticize him all we want for those but the WH-, they make up for it in their energy in their relentless optimism You know it never seems like they're out of the game never seems like in the Dugout they can just accept defeat or even if they're winning, they don't accept the fact that they're winning. They're always as you mentioned talking to each other trying to learn trying to stay involved in the game making it looked like fun. So. It's been a lot of fun to watch it and Jacob. You mentioned the different possibilities in kind of seeding. Possibilities for the Blue Jays, this year. It's confusing especially when we only have two games left and game every tiebreaker matters, but try to break it down now The Blue Jays had the possibility or have the capability of passing the Cleveland Baseball team. But that is no longer possible because. One last night they walked off. Pittsburgh pirates. In the bottom of the ninth. So that's no longer possible in order for them to overtake Cleveland for the second prefer the first wildcard spot I'm for the seventh seed. Overall, they would have had to win all their games. Cleveland would have had to lose all their games since Cleveland one that's no longer possible. The only remaining changed that could happen to the Blue Jay seating is if they overtake Yankees for the second spot in the AL least and for that to happen. The Blue Jays have to win all their chips. Blue Jays cannot tie with the Yankees losing a game. If they lose a game, they lose this season series against the Yankees I know it's super confusing I'm just GonNa read a little bit of the Post I put up about all the different possibilities about this because it is super complicated So if Toronto wins all their remaining Games has put up yesterday. So Toronto one yesterday, they have to win today to have. To tomorrow and New York loses all their remaining games. Toronto would take the second spot in the alias because they would have a better record than the Yankees Yankees. Right now I think are thirty, two and twenty, seven or thirty, two, hundred, twenty, six, Blue Jays are thirty and twenty seven on WanNa. Say if that's a thirty one and twenty seven, there were perfect So if the Blue Jays win older games Yankees lose all the games no tiebreakers bluejays had. The better record if the Blue Jays win three and the Yankees win to than the teams have the same record at the end of the season and then the tie-breaker. The first tiebreaker goes to the team's head to head record this season. The BLUEJEAN Yankees have both won five and lost five against each other. So they're tied on that would go to the next tiebreaker, which is Intra Division, record the division against the the record you have this season against other teams. In your division and guess what the Blue Jays and the Yankees would be tied on that if the Blue Jays sweep, the orioles, this series they'd be both I think twenty three and seventeen on the season against teams in their division. So it would go to the next tiebreaker, which is your record against teams in your division in the last twenty games which the Blue Jays are twelve and eight, or they will be twelve and eight if they sweep the orioles the Yankees. Are Eleven and nine. So all that being said, if the Blue Jays win three, the Yankees, lose at least to the Blue Jays will overtake the Yankees for the fifth spot emelio. We've already seen the Blue Jays win one. We've already seen the Yankees lose one. Bluejean now have to win their remaining two games. Yankees have to lose one of their remaining two games It's complicated there's a lot of moving parts here not to mention it's not guaranteed who the blues are actually going to be playing in the seeds I mean the rays are almost guaranteed to be the first seed right now I think they might actually be guaranteed after last night. But you know the other moving parts in this HE OAKLAND ATHLETICS MINNESOTA TWINS Chicago White Sox are all kind of moving around in this. So a lot of uncertainty bottom line I guess do you guys think the Blue Jays can overtake the Yankees do you even want them to overtake the Yankees? I Know Jacob you mentioned you you Kinda just want to. See the Blue Jays play the raise. So what do you guys think about that? It's it's hard to say because like the rest of the American League hasn't even been settled yet and you know there's so many moving pieces not even just for the Jake. You mentioned complicated tiebreaker scenario but you know other teams can potentially move up they could potentially move down and I think one of the most recent changes to that we saw within the division was a few days ago when the Cleveland Baseball team past the Chicago White Sox, and after they played a series in Cleveland Cleveland pretty much. Got The better handed them in prior that Chicago is leading the division. So my point is there still a lot of moving pieces to go. The only thing that we know is the American League set in terms of the eight teams that will make the playoffs The National League still has about one three more teams potentially sneak in that art in the playoff victory now, but the point is for the American League. The seating still has not really been determined yet and like I. There's lots moving pieces. The one thing that we the only really thing that we know for sure is the the raise will be the first seed or it's pretty much likely as the next best team would be the Oakland. Athletics were three games behind them is well as the Minnesota twins are are also three games behind Tampa. So it looks like Tampa will be the number one seat for sure I guess that could potentially change unless it's guaranteed to happen with only two games left but anyways, for the Blue Jay standards it would be Tampa Bay if they finished eighth. And, if they would pass if they would pass the Yankees, and then that would put the Jays in fifth and that means they potentially play Cleveland which it also looks likely that Cleveland will finish the fourth seed. Unless the white sox can pass them censored, but actually the white sox could still pass him as they both at the same record. So he can also be looking at the white sox. So those are pretty much the most likely teams the would play and you can even throw in Minnesota the the AL central pretty much really competitive. Those top three teams are still fighting and the it would likely be one of those three teams if the Jays past the Yankees but if not, if Jay state in a they would play. And I know that like I said before there's not a lot of optimism earliest. Parts from what I remember to the Jay's going far in the playoffs but. The one thing too is the Jason Pretty good against Tampa. This year I think I think it was pretty evenly matched. I'm not for sure unless I'm completely wrong but. I know the Jays were pretty much in every game like I mentioned earlier as well. So. No matter who they play I. I really don't think you can rule him out from any possible upset because of what we've seen from the ABC, they've given me no reason to believe that they're completely ruled out of winning a series. I know they have over the past few weeks have been a little rough in terms of being blown out is by teams especially like the Yankees Bhai other than that they've been in pretty much every single game and they've been also blowing teams out themselves as they. Won Game the Yankees the Jason the next night, the Jays returned the favor. But the Jason Competitive they can be. They can pretty much play with any team in the American. League from what I've seen this year. And that you know you can't rule anything like out like that and You know it's GONNA come down to starting rotation. It's GonNa it's GONNA come down to production but the Jays the pieces to potentially Win a series, and if you WANNA start for a simple scenario, you know you send out hungry for game one. What if you know early one and then you you would expect to have a good outing boom the Jazeera nothing they need to take two to three. To potentially move onto the next round. That's just one example but I think the of the pieces to do if they know the Tampa. Bay Rays a really well, and the other thing too is if they play like a team from the central who knows how that will go because that would be even unpredictable just because they haven't seen each other at all this season, they haven't seen the twins. They haven't seen Cleveland. They haven't seen the white SOX They haven't seen that in even if you WANNA, throw the West teams even though it's adding, it's unlikely. The JAYS. Meet up with Houston or the Oakland A.'s the just there's been no. UPS At all this year with them, and it's only been alias and analytics analyst team. So that's the one thing is as much as the seating really doesn't matter in my opinion of who they play. It is going to be a really really unpredictable Siri are unpredictable playoff bracket to predict just because of these situations and of course, to begin with it was a shortened season and. It was shortened season, and this is also a new playoff format that the that the MLB is testing out. So who knows how this goes down hopefully it's well received around everyone but yeah, the the one thing too is we're entering a completely new playoff structure and a lot of these teams Ajay's haven't even met up with this year at all other than at least an analyst analyst always teams I. It's interesting because I mean. From. A standings perspective and you know from a you know as Charlie more Toyo like to say a moral victory types scenario if the blue jays do takeover second place in the East I think that would be. Good for them to say, Hey, we overcame the Yankees. You know we we. For a bit, but we were able to get over that Hump, but I think. I would honestly prefer just to see them stay in the eighth seed not because I think that they don't deserve to move up but I, think. Just in terms of Tampa Bay like I said the familiarity, they've played them ten times this year, the reformed six against them and Brayson as you were talking I looked through all of the games that they played and all, but one of them had a final score. Sorry all but two of them had a final score of. A three run difference or not one of them. The Blue Jays won they beat the the race twelve, the four one time, and they lost to the rates four to one one time. The rest of them are all one or two run games, and you also gotta remember a lot of the some of the early games. First, two games of the season. Really. They lost one of those because of the The candle slip up at night. Entirely you know his fault but that was just you know one of the Games that. An unfortunate series of events resulted in them losing but. I think they can compete with the Tampa Bay rays. They've like I said, they've seen them. They know what they're expecting. You're probably GONNA see Blake Snell Game One I look through their rotation. They got guys like Charlie Morton. Glatt glass. Now Fleming, you know they've got obviously the the raise T. use bullpen days. Too but I think the blue can compete with that. Obviously hundred you I would expect to pitch in game. One. I think he can compete with with Blake Snell. I. I'M GONNA be honest. You probably going to see tie Walker in game two, and then if it goes to a third game, you're probably GonNa see Shoemaker Shoemaker and Pearson as kind of the. I don't know if you call it a bullpen day but more of a you know like we saw last night where. Even in shoemakers I start from his return from the injured list he pitched three innings and then even last night walker was three innings and then Pearson, didn't ending third you'll probably see something like that although maybe a little bit more out of Pearson. Given that it'll be his second start but I think they can compete with that I think. That you know because they've they've been close games they. It's not like they've been blown out the raise standing wise are. You know mountains better than the Blue Jays in terms of the fact that they are I, the American League but. I don't think that really tells the whole story of the match up I. think the Blue Jays could. If they can control their errors and the misplace I think. When their best I think they could win. I mean, like you said Brayson with the with the American. League. Central. TEAMS MINNESOTA CHICAGO IN CLEVELAND IT's. Kind of. It's kind of you know up in the air because of the fact that they haven't seen each other at all because of just the way the. The geographical schedules work this year but I don't know I think. If it if it comes down to that, then I think we can look at analytics and say all these pictures are better these hitters better. But I, think with the Blue Jays in the raise I don't think you're really comparing just stature you're comparing how well the team actually played against each other and I think the Blue Jays have played. Fairly, well against the raise, they haven't seen them since where whether I believe the last time they saw them was it's been a bit. You know I think these seven, the sixteenth of August now sorry the. Fourth of of August was the last time they've seen them. So it's it's been a while and the blues have been a much better team since they last saw the raise and. I think you know what I think. They can compete with them. I I know I keep saying that but I, really do I think. The Blue One thing that's interesting is everybody always says all Tropicana Field Bluejays or not very good there. I think to some degree. That's true. But also I think it's kind of hard to compare this current group of blue, Jays to the group two or three years ago even two years ago because that was just a completely different team and you know the Jose Bautista era of Blue Jays they obviously struggled against the raise even out of Tropicana field even the Roger I went to many Games Twenty fifteen in two thousand, fourteen against the raise and they lost I think most of them but this is a this is a. Completely. Different team that I think. Eaten, I don't WanNA say easily because it makes it sound as if the razor a pushover but I think the Blue Jays can compete with them and. I'm excited I think. Pitching wise I think might have been starting pitching. But it's honestly GONNA come down to the nitty gritty things are the Blue Jays can control their areas of they're going to control their excitement. You know how is the Managing GonNa Work? But. If the Blue Jays as a team are at their best I think. The race should watch out I. think There's no denying that the rays are a really really good team. You know they are one of the best teams if not the best team in the majors right now they have a thirty eight and twenty record on the season I mean the only other team, the trillion. That is the dodgers who of course, have a higher record, their forty, one and seventeen, but the rays have been insane. Despite a number of injuries to them so I think they're really really good team. Do I think the Blue Jays can beat them. Yes. The Blue Jays went four and six against the raise a season much better than they normally do against Tampa. Bay. I mean we know that Tropicana field as house of horrors. For the Blue Jays it has been for a number of years you know they went. Five Years Winning series at Tropicana field it was horrible. So you know the fact that they did fairly well, this season I think is a good sign. I think they can be threes that being said. I don't understand why people want the Blue Jays to stay in the seed and play the raise instead of. Jumping up to the fifth seed and playing worst team like the Blue Jays may have been successful against ratio maybe they match up well against starters against their bullpen maybe hyon-jin has been successful against them although he did have the bad I started the season against but. You know regardless of all that they're still really good team a lot can happen that that you know they'll. They'll come out swinging those come out playing well and I would much rather see a blue jays play another team like the Chicago White, SOx Thirty, four and twenty four you know four wins worse than the Tampa, Bay rays and frankly far better matched up with the Blue Jays. You know instead of playing a thirty team versus a thirty one win team, you're going to be playing a thirty one win team versus a thirty four win team It just seems. I don't really understand the the desire to stay in the seat that bluejays have now despite their success against raising the season. I just don't want to Tessa bluejays luck at all with playing a team that's tougher than they have to play I think they should continue to push to get to the number five seed, play the number four seed whether it be the twins whether it be the white sox. And and I think they would be better for it. Yeah. That's fair on obviously you would you know technically anybody would wanna be a higher seed just because also technically gives you a better route to the potential world series I like I just said I just don't know how I feel about it because and even goes for teams like the twins Cleveland in Chicago I wonder how they would feel to playing a team that they haven't even seen this season it just Definitely. Make it more interesting for sure. It would just because like I said no matchups with each other. It's almost like you're going in blind but I don't want to call it. Completely I just it just it just gives me a weird feeling. It gives me a weird like vibe heading into it but Yeah. I know we shouldn't take anything away from the Tampa Bay rays they obviously rightfully so have. The number one seed in the American. League there were a number one seat for a reason and quite frankly they were dominant this season and but. The JAYS, like you said, they did better than usual against them, which gives me a little bit more of. Optimism if they had to match up with them, but it just I don't really know how I feel about the seating. I just don't feel like it makes. Much of a difference for that reason. But Hey, maybe they do match up better on paper against Chicago Cleveland or Minnesota it just it just gives me. A weird feeling because there's no familiarity, there's been nothing this year in terms of matchup there's no stat soon thing you can see his team stats but the team itself did not match up with the other team and that's why it gives me a weird feeling that maybe it's something you don't want to deal with in the first round especially in a wildcard series with the offs being expanded the wrote to the World Series is obviously a lot longer. Pretty much. There is a whole wildcard series before the S, but maybe it's just something that I don't you know don't want. The, Jason have to cross paths was until maybe they win a series that just the feeling I'm getting but honestly when it comes down with, I'm going to say it again just because of. The sixty game season, maybe not all these numbers are truly reflective of how it would go in at one, hundred, sixty, two game season by I'm just happy the Jason N and I really don't care who they play in terms of that but I just feel like it they may. It would just be a little bit more familiar oil. It obviously would be if they played the Tampa Bay rays in the I'm sure the raise would say the exact same about playing the Blue Jays but it just gives me a weird feeling if they play any of those Ale central or even those Ale West don't even know if that's possible but it's more likely. Tamper. One of those three central teams because that division is very competitive in everything is still up in the air they're all separated by within a game within half a game. So it'll it'll be very interesting but the the other thing about that too is with these teams not matching up with each other this season like a mix it even more interesting. I think it would make it even more exciting for fans for everybody around the game just because it'd be so hard to predict in particular of what's going to happen and we we know the way while or at least from past experiences with the wildcard game. itself you know how on you know how crazy unpredictable it is. It's essentially a coin flip where you pretty much have every starting pitcher in your bullpen You know there's a short leash like crazy. But in this case, it's going to be a wildcard series. So I guess it would still have a little bit of a similar feeling but probably not as crazy as a single game nocco and a lot of that it's it is very controversial around a lot of people who don't believe it's fair. But in this terms of an expanded postseason, it'd be a series. So who knows how it really will go and like I said it's going to be a new plan structure for all of us. So it's GonNa be a brand new experience for all of us as well and the I. Just it's very exciting for to just be in there and that's all I'm kind of worried about this season that they just gone and rather than who they match up against their seating just because of the past few years of the downward slope they went in because once they decided to enter a little bit of a rebuild day fell off the map pretty quick compared to where they were in two, thousand, fifteen in two, thousand, sixteen and. There's no denying that based off the numbers. It was a really really steep fall from them and it's just good to see them trending right in it right back in direction of competing and after the season I'm sure the Jays are no question or no denying that they can compete and this will probably lead to more editions in the future and I'm just glad that it gave all of us kind of a vote of confidence that gave the front office confidence and Let's see what they got. Once it starts Tuesday yet you mentioned the fact that this is now a series, the wild card round rather than just one game. I'm just GONNA say I'm ecstatic about that. I think. I've hated the wild card format. The blue. Jays they did win their wildcard game. I still don't think it's necessarily overly fair because one bad move and essentially your season's over I mean you can argue that. Britain. Legend has it. He's still in that bullpen but. You. You you that you know. The best teams you know they, they overcome those things. You know they it. If you're a really good team, you know you're GonNa win even if you only have one opportunity to win, you know it's not like you can come back from a three one deficit or you know. Any type of game deficit just but I think the fact that it's more than one game, it's good because. I'm not gonNA excuse if the Blue Jays play bad in game one, you know if re really kind of an exception because if he If he gets I mean I'm sure everyone's GonNa talk about it in they're going to be very concerned about it but. You know if the team in general, you know they just look. I don't want to say that they don't have it. But if even if it if they have those postseason jitters, their first appearance for a lot of these guys. Then it's not like. Oh sorry. You guys kind of had a tough situation in game one. See an extra they at least you know they have a bit of. Flexibility it also makes a matchups match up some. strategizing. and. Planning for a whole series interesting because. Essentially, you know if if a guy, you know like mentioned review if he throws five six, seven innings in game one, he's essentially out for the rest of the series. You're not gonNA have him close. Game three if it comes to that or is definitely not going to pitch in game two and never know Madison Bumgarner twenty four hundred series came out like every single day even even David Price Two thousand fifteen, game six Kansas City he came out of the bullpen it is interesting I mean. It's just the way. Managers have to plan. You know you have. You have guys that are GonNa Pitch Game One. Guy's GonNa Pitch game to the bullpens a little bit more flexible. I think in a game or even a seven game series. You can definitely be a little bit more flexible but when you really only have three games. Some pictures you might only see once or twice. I mean if if it comes down to the Blue Jays, have two opportunities to close obviously they're gonNA probably use. Doley bass twice I mean they could use either or but. I mean. They're probably just gonNA stay consistent but. It's just interesting the way that they plan and you know you're not just saying, okay everybody's available game one. It's more of we kind of have to strategically plan because you know if you go all in in game one. And you know even if you win, you know you go all in a game to again and you end up losing then it's just. It's just it's a different kind of aspect of the game and it's just it'll be a little bit harder to plan but I think it's interesting. I'm happy it's multiple games you know the Blue Jays have. I don't want them to lose game one, game two but. If it if they happened to struggle in one of the Games, they still have a bit of an opportunity although like I said, I would prefer them to. You know if they're going to win for them to win. You know in two games because the last thing you WanNa do is. Go to sleep ridiculously angry because your team struggled in the playoffs. Yeah. The pitching strategy is certainly something that's really really interesting. It's weird 'cause like, yeah to be fair. The Blue Jays aren't GonNa Pitch Jin Ryu more than I guess five innings probably that he pitches in his first start maybe upwards of six or even seven innings we saw him make. into the seventh inning throw one hundred pitches in his last doting, which was the first outing by Blue Jay. Yeah to. Shot timber out in the seventh inning since wag pack against the Los. Angeles dodgers last year shows. But yeah, like review isn't GonNa Start, more than one game. But it's a question of where do you starts like logically we would all thank you starts the first game, but he has better stats pitching on on five days of rest into four days arrest It's been shown all through last year. The dodgers pretty much ruled him out. On five days of rest pretty much every start instead of four days arrest just because he's better pitching that way we don't really know why but the same is held true this season so You would think he lines up from his last start to game one of the American League wild-card series as four days of rest. So. The Blue Jays might be trying to push him to game to Taiwan Walker. In Game One, we saw Walker in the game last night removed after just forty two pitches three innings even though he had not allowed to hit, he struck out four. So it looks like the Blue Jays are kind of strategizing here setting it up. So that Walker starts the came reused starts the second game and then it. If, needed the bluejays rollout. I guess. Tanner rourke null I don't know I should make her in Pearson diesel truck you're Pearson. Who Do you think makes the third start I was just gonNA. Say I think shoemaker would start maybe three or four innings in Pearson the thing Shoemaker though. He's been injured like we don't really know how much. He has in him at this point of the season I think it shoemaker gained three and I think it's I think it's Robbie Ray game for I. Don't think tanner work, but there's only three of. Them, just saying that's how they would handle it in like oh areas. But Yeah I. Mean isn't it five days of slow Thursday Tuesday because Friday he's off Saturday Sunday Monday on his fifth day would be Tuesday maybe I don't know if that lines up for game one review but for Taiwan Walker deftly had almost certainly has to be game two or even like I said he you'll be in one of those games for sure. But then depending on how everything goes, let's just say it's the best of three series. That game three let's say it's one in the series it'll be interesting to see. Is it really Matt Shoemaker? The jays would throw out leg. It is a very interesting discussion I wouldn't like obviously, we don't want tanner rockaway he's been horrible this season but like the diesel truck doesn't run in October. Loyd I guess Robbie Ray. Wended Robbie. Ray, last start because I feel like that's the. Best choice of Blue Jays in like you said to, it's a three game series so you may see out of the bullpen to right but. The in terms of if they advance maybe he gets in rotation but. The last time Robbie. Ray pitched I'm looking at announced December twenty third here he gets four. which she's definitely going to be rested that Wednesday. Yeah. If they've walked to I, guess push him off. I guess he would be lined up to start in terms of days of rest he'd be lineup to start normally on Monday. Of course, there's no game. Monday. So I guess you could. Push him give him a few extra days rest Thursday third game in that series. I it's really a weird. Decision Woodley Robbie Ray over matching I think so I think the Blue Jays yeah. Trust him a little bit more. He's. A good starts with the Blue Jays I mean, the only gave up one run which was unearned in his last owning over four innings. Start for that was a little bit more rough. gave up five runs but I think I think the Blue Jays trust him. To some extent and you know you know maybe they don't even go with a a sort of starter in the third game maybe they just go with the kind of Bullpen Day the go with you know guys like Thomas Hatch may be Anthony K. Comes back to the roster chase. Anderson's in the Beret who say well, I don't WanNa see today Sanderson. No on Ross stripling they could sneak for a couple innings if. I. Think I think the best approach option. Yeah I think the best approach is probably kind of a patchwork of Pearson. Ross stripling Robbie Ray? No particular 'cause I yeah. But they're in a weird position they have come to bonafide starters and then. You know it's like, what do they do after that? So but yeah, I think. I think it does lineup for engine Rio to. Start on five days of rest on. Wednesday because he laughs pitched September twenty four. So Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday. Monday is four days of rest if he started Tuesday so I think five days of rats if I'm getting that right but yeah, it's. It's tough for the Blue Jays obviously strategizing you can see in the Games now you know in yesterday's game after they clinched, they were kind of to me at least it seemed focusing a lot on who they were going to bring out who they were trying to arrest. I was surprised they brought a Thomas Hatch I thought they would try to arrest him a little bit more but. There's definitely a lot of strategy going on here. Even Taiwan Walker he only pitched three innings right and nothing was wrong with him. He was finding with smiling it was an abbreviated starts. So they you know the he's getting ready to like. I said it's for sure GonNa be Walker Review or other way around for game one into that we know for sure we just don't know what comes after a potential game three like who knows so predictable and like I said earlier many times. This is something that pretty much no team has ever experienced a wildcard series with the expanded playoffs. So you know that everyone is trying to figure out to any extent or going through. So many possibilities of what can happen through the bullpen like come in right it just it's completely unpredictable maybe they don't even have a surfer game three maybe they have an idea but you know it's all subject to change based off of one or two games. Yeah. It's it's definitely interesting I mean. I think like we said earlier, it's probably. Game three probably, not gonNA have a stereo typical starter I mean you're going to have a guy that starts the game and pitches in the first inning, but it's probably just going to be. A two, three inning outing nothing wrong with that. I mean you can like you said we. have. Plenty options that they can. They can throw Robbie Ray for two innings Pearson for two three. If they want I mean I prefer more than two innings out of each guy if or in the early to middle innings but. Worse case. They have the guys I to take over. Anyone, from one to three innings and I mean. It's definitely interesting. I mean a couple years ago. This would have been no question. Any baseball team would have. Had A starter in mind, but it's just interesting. The way the game has evolved and it's more of. Will Hey we have all these bullpen guys. We have all these guys that we can just. Rely, on for a couple of innings, why don't they just go give it their all for two innings rather than have to worry about pitching seven. One thing. Buck Martinez Dan, Shulman of mentioned. So many times about Nate Pearson and him pitching out of the bullpen as he can throw a hundred miles an hour for two innings or three innings and not have to worry about. Extending himself enemy last last night. Against Baltimore I believe he he capped out at one hundred and one with which was i. thought he looked good. He was I mean he had some hard contact but overall his fastball was nice. Breaking Ball. where? They were moving while the I thought they were good but if they want him to only. Get sick seven outs. He can go and throw his heart as he needs to. In order to do that instead of trying to. Extend himself, I think that would definitely be an interesting way to approach it and. You know if if it works I, mean then. It'll probably happen for the rest of the playoffs if the blue jays advance but it's not I. Don't think that we're going to see you know a five to seven inning outing out of anybody in game three forget that point or in any came. Really. I. Think the BLUEJAYS are sticking harder fast to their. Third Time through the lineup rule whether they should be or not is another question. But yeah, well, I mean in all seriousness I know we joke with the diesel truck just because he was part part of the rotation this year do you think even gets on the playoff roster? Do you think he would be used as a potential bullpen option I don't even know where to think to think of town I don't think. I don't think that Iraq makes onto the roster for the. First series I think the Blue Jays. After the first series kind of Needham for the Division Theresa Way Things Lineup because. Well I mean, there are a lot of days of rest between the the wildcard series in the division series because wildcard series. Last game is Thursday October first and the division starts October fifth. So in that time I guess you have time to figure out. What you're doing. But I think they have to at least on the roster for the division series. If they make it that far but I don't. He's not getting on the roster for the wild shrimp. Just being on unfortunate it's unfortunate but you know when you have. When you really have almost no room for error. You know you get blown out in game one well, you go into straight or else go back to Toronto. You know it's just it's it's it's unfair i. mean he he's been on the roster the whole year so I could see him saying. I was part of this team or million dollars. Don't remember it's it's too. Yeah and even throughout the rest of the team. You know another big piece that they'll be missing is rowdy doesn't look like he's going to be on. The wildcard roster, he's pretty much only running right now he's like he's barely or just beginning to do baseball activities against it doesn't look like he's going to be ready and another interesting name I was just wondering about to was who knows maybe Jordan Romano's ready but I really heard enough but I guess you can't rule that odor even maybe he's ready to come in. Maybe. He's that that one I don't know for sure because we haven't really heard much other than he's starting to throw again by I guess you can't rule out Jordan Romano in he was one of the best pieces this year in the bullpen so. For. My impressions of the news that we are getting I. Think he was throwing a bullpen yesterday or maybe today and it sounded like if the bullpen was successful, he might. Be Coming off the injured list. So. Like maybe he makes it back for the wildcard series. Certainly be a big lift for the Blue Jays if they could get him in the bullpen but yeah, I would I would much rather the Blue Jays keep a guy on the roster like. Even. A guy like Sean Reid fully or Patrick Murphy or Anthony K instead of tanner roark at this. Like a three game series, you don't need to carry another starter and on much rather see them carry more effective reliever out of the bullpen and the way it's gone with or arc. The fastest starts is you know that there is going to be at least five runs on the board by the fifth inning for the other team and it hasn't gone good. So. Bringing them into a potential. Elimination game would pretty much scream danger from the GECKO so I think. I think it definitely would be better if they leave him off the roster and you know another question I had to was like, where do you guys? How do you guys think the role of Alejandro Kirk pays out in the while occurred with his bat I know he's not as good defensively as Danny Janssen by he's the one that's pretty much leading the way now in terms of offense for the the catchers. I don't think he's going to catch you at all and Danny Janssen's you know it's been obvious even with Kirk. Success at the plate. Danny Janssen's still going to catch him. I think they're going to go with Danny Janssen catching I mean if they want to do a defensive substitution. They can do it late in the game Kirk. that. Yeah. That's what I was. GonNa say if the Blue Jays face a lefty such is Blake's now. which is we saw against when the Jays were against Jordan Montgomery in New York or in Buffalo against. New York. He Dha. And again, Buck Martinez said, this is probably what the playoffs. are going to consist of D. Aging Kirk although the only issue like they said is if Danny Johnson gets injured. Kirk has to you know if they want to keep another catcher know whatever. But they're going to have to give up their D. H. in order to. Fill in for that, you always run that risk but I mean the Kirk easy. I like him but I don't think that it's responsible for the Blue Jays to throw them into the playoffs. As a defensive Catcher I mean he can bat but. It's I. I don't think it's not that I don't WanNa see him because I think he's a good he's a good player but. You can't you gotta give a I mean didn't Janssen's not the most experienced catcher but relative to Kirk he's a lot more experienced and. Like, you said with Review Danny Janssen's GonNa catch him so I mean if Kirk wants to. Take over for a full game. It's GonNa. Most likely be game to I. Don't think he'd catch him three but. it's just that's just I think and Janssen's thereby. Johnson is definitely catching. I don't really know the reason why like I know the Blue Jays have a good reason for like he's matched up well with Riyadh seems like. They get along well, we've seen I mean just earlier today I saw video twitter showing. All of the. Strike Calls, Danny Janssen Cup with review on the mound that were not actually strikes something like thirty, which is I think top fifteen in the majors for any pitcher and catcher combination. So like he definitely lines up well and I definitely want to see Dany Janssen catching with review It's just how do you get hundred Kirks Bat in the lineup and maybe you know you just pinch hit with. Kirk later in the game may be d. h. m. but it's a difficult balancing act for the Blue Jays honestly I think I would like to see them d. h. m. you don't really have a clear D.? H.. In this lineup right now of course, you can I guess give Vladi a day off the field you can do all sorts of weird things move pieces around but. I think the best way to do it just D. H. Kirk you know his pat is going be really good. been lighting it up in the batter's box so far. So yeah, I think aging is the best way to do it, and also the race haven't seen Kirk I mean that's also true. They can watch videos, but that's a lot different from physically pitching to him. So who knows how that goes? You know the impact he's made the end of course of what I'm talking to you guys knows the offensive part of his game obviously, and you know definitely creates a risk like you said, Jake of the possibility of an injury where he may have to come in as a catcher and then you get rid of the DA. You're pretty much playing old or pre twenty twenty nationally rules for an American League team, which is you know obviously, a roster is not built for that. No. Russia's built for that this season but you know in terms of who are what offense your you know the better lineup you you have to imagine you have to have Kurkin there. Especially if Blake's now, for example, is GonNa Pitch Game One that's a lefty. Like why wouldn't you WANNA have kirk in the line of as a D. H. so it'll be interesting to see. How he factors in but you know he's definitely has. I think it's safe to say he will be on the America. The wildcard roster and you know there's still a little bit other a few other question marks but I think majority of it I think we have covered in I think we got a pretty good idea of what it's GonNa. Look like come. Tuesday but it's going to be an exciting series for sure and like I said probably going to be unpredictable because first of all, no matter what season normal season pandemic season, the wildcard or wild card games are always unpredictable and it's always essentially a coin flip but maybe a series this season and maybe beyond will make it a little little bit more predictable maybe by a bit but. Disdain. Wildcard gets you thinking and gets you knowing that something that something will happen that you did not predict okay. Laugh Seraing. Before we wrap up final predictions for this series next time we're going to record his Saturday October third once a series is wrapped up. So do you think the Blue Jays are GonNa win it How do you think it's GonNa go e it's hard I'm. I three optimist. I think they're going to win in three games. Okay. I don't know it's hard to predict individual game scores, but I think. In the end of it. You know whether they win game one you know they go win lose winner you know lose win win whatever it is I. Think they're going to win three games early the two of the three in advance I think it's going to three games and I think the Jays. One I. Think they went to straight. Okay. I think I just you know Just just reminds me of two thousand, fifteen where the jays down to. Going back to Texas their backs against the wall and they managed to win I know it was a different roster I just have that feeling that. They're gonNA they're going they may lose game one but I think they win the next two I I do think they upset Tampa Beth it will Tampa Bay I guess. It's it could be different like if they're playing one of the American Ale Central Teams I, guess I may have a different prediction. But if they played Tampa, it's I think it's to three games regardless of who wins. I'm GONNA the the optimist here I'm GonNa. Say Two Games Bluejays Win A. I think heating up the right time ran griggs eating up vowed is heating up to Oscar Hernandez is staying hot Boba. Danny Janssen even heating out I think. I think they can do it in two games they have for you and walk are rolling out. I think they can do it. So that's my on fire to yeah we'll see. Really good too. So next time we talk. It's going to be October third in the Blue Jays will either be eliminated or they're moving onto the division series. Stressful. So we'll see what happens. It's going to be a fun week but until then thank you to everyone for listening and as always you can find our podcast on twitter and Instagram at sexual thirty pod. You can read them review our podcast on apple podcasts. Help spread the word until next week. Watching Blue Jays. Pray for them to get some good luck. To you.

My days playing here but it's still nice to catch up with a few folks and say Hello. Yeah. No doubt. I mean it's been quite some time since you were here of loud, change over Tony Gwynn junior here, I played parts of eight seasons in the big leagues between the Padres. The dodgers the brewers and the Phillies then transitioned to being a broadcaster in two thousand sixteen I was with the dodgers for a year. And I've been here in San Diego ever since. And this is home for me as you said, been. So it's a good fit. It's always nice to come out to pick go park, which is one of the most beautiful stadiums and all baseball. Yeah.

Sports on Twitter at RDC sports. Well, we might as well dump right into it. Tony. This is gonna be a tough road trip for the Phillies having to go out to LA with that ball club that they have out there and they are a spectacular ball club and then coming here to play the, the Padres. We knew about the lineup and we knew that they can put up some run. Yeah. I mean listen. You guys came in after a tough series against the dodgers, and you're right. The dodgers to me. It's one a one b between the dodgers and the Astros for best team in baseball. I give the not of the dodgers based on the injuries that the Astros have right now. But loss for the Phillies lose mccutchen two tornado. I want to jump into this trade deadline, that's coming up here in about a month. You have now the Phillies who have been kind of in this conversation for kaikal now you have to they're going to be in on everything at this point. They're top of the vision Atlanta's close. I there's gonna be a lot of come trade deadline anymore. This is this is when now and, and I would agree that they'd being on a couple of different trade talks, because I sit up in the booth and I do the color for the Phillies. And I looked down on the field. I think I've a pretty good judge of character and teams. And and what they cannot do it and I watched that dodgers team. And I'm thinking myself. It's a great lineup. Yes. It's very good lineup. But man, they can get after you with their pitching staff. They're starting rotation is so strong, so deep and we're Hershiser told me other day said they could probably feel to teams with, that's how deep that the dodgers are. And I say you know what I wouldn't doubt that because they are so deep at the pitching. They can the guys have coming off the bench. It's joe. I mean, they are so deep and I look at the Phillies, and I'm thinking, what do they need? They need starting pitching. They have to go deeper Nevada the bullpen has been decent. But, you know, if you run those guys out there on a consistent basis, they're going to get eaten alive. Dodgers in particular, the emergence of of review as really changed the game because I think going into the season I think everybody figured Clayton Kershaw was taking a step back. He's got off to a good start. I think everybody was expecting Walker to kind of take to sin to that as and he's been good. He was especially good as last start against Arizona, but the key to this whole thing is real. I mean he is he's got to be the front runner for for science right now. We can't forget about cancer Majeida who's been pretty solid form as well. You hit on it when you can get starting pitching that gets into six seventh inning that allows you to go to the bullpen more often because they're not being taxed for that sixth and seventh inning there. Able to come out in the seventh eighth and you can manage that as, as a manager for dealing with that bullpen compared to if you have stars only going five or six I see when I look out at Phillies team in particular, especially with the injury, mccutchen. I Bruce had a fantastic. Can he continued that for the entire season rest of the season? Or do you have to go out and bring in another outfielder as well? I don't know if he's gonna hit Hugh home run. But it'd be cool, if he did it might be a record or something. Replay. You can't replace injury coaching because what he's done for the Phillies you know, he alongside Hoskins and Harper top three still in the league in walks. And that is something that he's been so good. He's played a tremendous left field. The Phillies even filled in centerfield since doable has been on, you know, administrative leave each still buggy whip fastball. He can't he's got some unbelievable speed. But I do think that one of these guys and Scott Boras said he said, listen, like kind of like a fine wine and needs the can't little bit. So I don't know if he's got a deal in place, but we'll see what happens with we're gonna end up in that that's going to be very interesting piece moving forward because I mean, listen, it is rare that you can get those type of guys added to your chain without giving up a whole bunch. This is one of those few instances where you got to spend some money to get them. But you certainly won't be depleting your your, your prospects that are coming up through the system. So I I'm interested to see how. How that goes, do you think it's do you think it's bad for baseball that Dal's Keiko and Kirk Kimball didn't sign before the season started? I do. I do think it's bad for baseball because. Well, yes and no, I get that the owners have found a way through analytics to kind of suppress the numbers a little bit. Right. Because for a long time, it just kept going up and up and up there might be a couple year year to that. It was kind of remained the same. But for the most part has gone up. So clearly owners have found something where in this analytics, that allows them to justify keeping the numbers, and that was always the hard part they couldn't justify it. You know. So now analytics is here, and it seems like it's here to stay and I think that's going to be the norm. So from that standpoint, it's good for baseball. But listen, when you look at the NBA, and you look at the NFL when free agency comes it's one of the most exciting parts of the year, they're in the off season for those for those two entities. But when it comes to major league base-. Baseball. And you just have a pretty much a dead period from October through February. When you start. I don't necessarily think that's a good thing for baseball. You wanna be in the news, even though you're the, the game isn't actually in play at that point. And I think baseball's behind Abe ball when it comes to, they gotta find a way to keep the, the new cycle going even there in their off-season, which the other two major sports do a fantastic job of that. I would agree with that. And he talked about the free agency and there were no to bigger free agents than than Bryce Harper. Manny Machado watching these two face off. I if you look at it, give it time you have six hundred and thirty million dollars or the field just. Positions. Flyers S is hard for me to rationalize him. That's a lot of euros and a lot of comments. It is it is. And you know, both of them have gotten off to start that I think most people would say they're struggling a little bit. I think they would say that they're, they're not at their best at this point. And it's interesting, I always find it interesting. Because when you sign these dudes they are like they're the they're the gods. Right. They're the best things that ever happened. But as soon as he's start if they're not putting up the numbers. What's wrong with them? Something clearly gotta be wrong clearly, and, and, and, you know, and I and I always questioned myself as maybe because I played I'm not in a panic mode, because I've been around guys who are this talented. They always seem to find a way to figure it out. And, and, and it comes incrementally. Sometime. Sometimes it comes in a barrage of its, but usually when when October first rose around there right around where their numbers should be in. I think the same is going to hold true for. Both Bryce 'em Manny. I think if like I said, if you ask them right now they're probably say they're not at their best right now. And they I know both of them are probably trying to live up to the mount of money. They got in one year, and it's just not pasta. It's it's it is tough. And. You know, you bring up the analytics, and you bring up sabermetrics it's all about exit v low and ex fifth in ward, which is really just a fancy way of saying, I hit the ball, retard ex vivo, by the way, exactly there's some things that I because this is something that's been been digging at me. Is the fact that basically every at bat is going to end in a walk a home run or strike out. I don't think it's very good for the fans. No, I I look at it as an we're both still fans, right? We turned we turn the television onto Watson ballgame because we're fans we wanna see the great game of baseball being played. And we have stolen bases that are down. We have guys that can't get down. And there are certain managers that's flat out. We'll tell individual listen. We're not gonna bunt we only get twenty seven of them. I'm not going to give up an out to try and advance because if I Vance is first and second with nobody out if I advance runners the second. Third, it's still not a guarantee that I'm going to score one of those guys. I get it. I understand it. But it seemed like that the baseball that, that we grew up with the baseball that we played was a little bit more ABC. And now it's a little bit more XYZ in my opinion. It's, it's, it's part of the microwave society we live in like we want it now. We gotta have it fast. Right. And matter of fact, I think you're manager gave Kappler is one of those guys that feels like I'm not willing to sacrifice out over any circumstance less. It's going to actually get me a run. And so, you know, a lot of times getting that guy over. I the second by via the blunt doesn't seem like it's a beneficial to some guys who who manage these ball clubs but you're absolutely right. And I think people they can flake time of game with actual action of play. Right. Because time a game a game can be three hours and thirty minutes as long as there's act. Nobody cares mind sitting there for three hours thirty minutes. It's just when there's nothing going on for three hours and thirty minutes that it becomes a little bit of an issue. And you're absolutely right. When when the game is, is walks homers and strikeouts. That's not a very not a very appeasing game to the to the eye of the fan. I mean 'cause they come out they wanna see excitement. There's a reason why they stand up when it guy hits triple are you can feel the buzz when a guy still second and third. Those are exciting parts of the game. Yes. Home runs are exciting too. But it's only a it's, it's just a quick moment that you get to really enjoy. Right. The ball hit it goes over fence, you get the run. It's over. You know, you get to enjoy watching a guy try to take a base throw goes down to tag, you waiting for there's some suspense in it. So you're right there baseball. I think is it's big as issue. The attendants coming down the last four years. I think it's one of those things they gotta figure out a way to get more action. Really? I don't know if it's base. Small problem. It might be organizational, right? Because when you and I were coming up, and I hate to refer back to that time, but that long. That long ago. But when we were coming up, it was it was frowned upon strike. I think we had like ten percent of your best can be strikeouts. After that you are I should be ten percent of your at least be walks and you try outs we like to be under that. And if you didn't do that, you didn't move like you didn't. You didn't get rewarded to go up to the next level. If you couldn't do certain things I'll execute a like if I can execute. But I wasn't getting to the big that was just the name of the game. But now it's not even the starting pitchers. I mean I don't see them practicing the Phillies do it to some extent. But it's not like they're out there the pitchers on there. They were pitching. They were at their budding every day. Now, you look at guys, their form is terrible and enhance we get here, the pitchers are only they're only supposed to go five six innings. Right. So therefore, they're told that there's hold that. And they're gonna throw a hundred pitches and five or six innings and there. They know that if I have. If I Fran mill race up and I got three to count. I'm not gonna throw a fastball. There's no way, I don't care if I walk them because I don't care about my pitch count because I know I'm coming, I know him coming out, anyway. You know, and I think that's the point where I've never seen Moore three to breaking balls in my life than over last couple of years. It's unbelievable. Not only three to break in balls. Three one brag about it is it used to be to you. Let eat as often now. You can't quite excel out to it. You, you almost have I think you reason why you see more guys swing three. Oh, now is because that's become the new three one only time you're going to get a fastball guaranteed. And so you see a lot more guys even guys who aren't power guys take an exit three three. Oh, because they know this is the only fastball I in this county, and, you know, it's there that is among some of the issues, I think, baseball has when it comes to that attendance drop is, it's as if I can I can watch this three hour and thirty game at home. At this point, I don't have to go to the stadium because there's nothing really exciting. That's to just going to bring me out on a consistent basis. And that's I think that's the part, unfortunately that's where we are right now. I think at some point, though, it's going to come back. Like I love watching the brewers right because they lead the league in stolen bases. They lead the league in home runs. So that's they get the best of both worlds. But that's that's the cool part, though is that there are the good teams the teams that are winning pretty much year knee out there doing all of the things that we're talking about. But you know they pitchers get even a game to Astros come to my they may not bun as much, but their pitchers. Sure enough to get deep into games. And that bullpen gets to be a little bit less taxed compared to some of the other teams the dodgers, save speaking. Dodgers. I wanna get into their continued success, right? They've won six straight division underway. Way to looks like they're on the way to a seven. Yet, they've had a hard time getting over the hump and granite. They ran into the Astros. One year and ran into the Red Sox. One year both you could argue some of the best teams to ever get to that point. You know what I'm saying? But they have refused. One of the things I've noticed despite how good their starting pitching been despite the depth. They have offensively been a just questioned whether come deadline time if the dodgers are going to actually be willing to, to, to, to spend whatever it takes to get that tier one middle relief guy because past few seasons really the past five seasons. They've been unwilling to do it now. That doesn't mean they haven't got middle relief, but it hasn't been that top tier. That gets you over the hump and you just have to think at some point, and I from fan standpoint, I'm like, I would be saying to myself. Yeah, I it's cool. We've got to the World Series and grateful for that. But I would like to win I would like our team to win one just seems like they've been unwilling to go that far, but it would the team as well as they played, and I can't imagine that the dodgers felt like when you lose all the depth that they laws you lose Pui you lose camp. You lose would. That's depth. And now guys are stepping into those, those postal spots. You lose. You would think you lose that death. They still have it. Why not go out and make that trade? Well, they put so much money into their starting rotation, their lineup and rightfully so. And that's the reason that they're able to get to the playoffs. However, once you get into the playoffs you have teams like the Phillies like the dodgers team. They have the Astros. The Red Sox these guys grind it bats. So they get that pitch count. Exactly your point. They get that pitch count through the roof so they start they grind it bats. They might not get a hit, but they're running. Later on a pitch at bats. And that's exactly right. So the end up starting pitching on he goes, five innings maybe in the playoffs. That's why these gains end up being for our games in the plants because you have to keep running relievers out there. So why not just really bulk up? That's how the Indians were able to get a couple of years ago. And that's something that I think that the dodgers fans would love to see them take that next step because the lineup is going to be there. They're going to have unbelievable. They're going to be able to score some runs. The starting pitching is going to keep them into games. But how do they bridge that gap protect cap? So I think you might see that this year, you might see them go out and get get a kimbrel, or, or make a trade for somebody to really help them get over that home. But, you know, starting pitching can get them so far in one of those starting pitchers is you this guy is just. Talking about turn into page. I mean, this is a guy that we always kind of knew he had that stuff, but he wasn't able to just repeat as mechanics. He wasn't able to make consistent pitches. And you could say all you want about is all speed stuff. Tony in in my opinion in my humble opinion, the hardest pitcher hit is located fastball. No doubt, no doubt. When you have a located fastball. It only makes your secondary pitches that much better, you don't have to be as fine as long as you're not in the middle of the plate, be as fine which your secondary when you're locating the fastball, because that alone is gonna put a hitter on defense. I if you're pulling balls in the middle of the play that's different story. They don't they could be on the attack all the time. But you're mechanics from an offense of standpoint have to be so perfect on a well located fastball. That now that's the four at the forefront of your mind. That makes the off speed pitches, much more. I think also when it comes to review, he hadn't been healthy. He comes over. Over in believe it was two thousand twelve and I think at that point the dodgers thought that they were getting what they're getting this year from him, but he ran into some shoulder injuries and it really took a couple years to kind of get back on track. And once he did it. I mean he's he's you could see it and he'd come back at the end of the year. He well he sometimes be on the playoff roster. Sometimes wooden this year, it's like it's all coming together. And one of the things I like about review is that he's not afraid to use auspey stuff. You talk about the fast, the fastball command, but he's got a tremendous change of he's got two different versions of breaking balls that he throws really at any point time, he pitches backwards a lot of times, which is always something that throws hitters for a loop, but it's just been actually fun to watch him because you talked about him repeating his mechanics. He's doing that this year doubt back and that's why he's been more consistent with his pitching because I think the one thing that's really freed him up to the outside part plays. In fact, that he can locate into right? He's with his fastball. So he's got I wouldn't say he's overpowering fastball but he's got he's got enough giddy up where you gotta respect it. So you start to look inside. Then he starts to back with that breaking ball and you don't pick up rotations swing over top of it, or he starts dot you inside. And then he goes away with a change up, and that makes it that much more effective. It's just his fastball command in repeats mechanics. I think he's simplifies mechanics to where he get that release point one guy that you played with in Philly. And I think he's as good as left is is seen as Cole hamels tau and repeating his mechanics. Like this every time the same. Exactly. Right. So everything comes out of the same arm swat the arm speeds, the same the arm slot is the same you read fastball. That's what makes these guys so good. It's not the fact that reuse throws ninety eight ninety nine no he doesn't. He can locate it the way he does repeat those mechanics. And once you start reading fastball, and something else comes out. Ram, you or on a rapid, you know, we're talking about pitching in across the freeway out there in Los Angeles. You have the Anaheim angels, the Los Angeles angels or whatever you wanna call them at this point, they change. It seems like Amir two year. They are on the opposite end of this conversation. Right. They've spent a lot of money offense of -ly trout pool halls. They bring in Simmons. The they got some players on that team that can that can just up and he's hurt right now but they got some guys in that line of but for pass we talk about my travel time. He's he's the best player league. I don't think there's any question about it guys top to an MVP voting year in year out if he's not winning it. And you look at what they've done. It's almost like doing my trout. A disservice man. He most talented player has said in this league yet. He's only been the playoffs one time in large part due to the lack of pitching that Anaheim has had. Now some of it has been injury. Where they've had major injuries to their pitching staff, but other years, it's almost like they didn't pay too much attention to the staff in what they should add this ballpark. They forgot the pad bullpens. It's like okay we settled this great offense. Oh, we forgot about pitch. Beautiful ballpark to warm up. Bullpens at for well that's what the angels have done. You know, they have this great offense. Well, you're not gonna go out and score six runs every game this game, you're not do it, and I don't care how many band aids you try and put over it. It's just not going to cover it and. You look at it. You're thinking are they doing trying to service? Well, gave him four hundred thirty six say for hit back, but he really is in the prime career and he's going to be there for a few more years, but Otani will be back next year pitching that's going to be hugely. But they need more than just one guy. They tried it with Harvey k hill this year. If they're just not able to, to put that band aid on it and make them be successful, especially when you have a team like the Astros in your division, that they're not going anywhere. They're not going for that American League West Astros are going to be there for I still young enough where I think the angels are gonna have to start spending some money on pitching, where they're going to get that. That's yet to be determined. They have to do something to. It's gonna make that offense a little bit better. Do you think Otani can sustain this? Like I know he's not pitching this year, but last year, he pitched a little bit eventually he wore down, the elbow goes taking a year off and pitching is is that something that angels? I can depend on because just off top. I don't think it's something you could depend 'cause we really only one player ever really do it consistently. And that's Babe Ruth. I if, if someone can do it. I think do it because he it's youth. Yeah, you know, he's still young enough. Now he's got a new elbow. Okay. Well, how long does is that window open for him to be able to do both? I mean at some point the body's going to be like I've had enough of doing much much pressures. He really put on his body. So you go out and throw a bullpen right on the day that you're not the ancient. You know, I think it I don't think it's that much. I don't I really don't. And maybe I've just been brainwashed by the analytics now that you are. You know, I don't know if we discussed this before, but the one day we're facing Randy Johnson and made me play first base because somebody wanna hours right handed switch hitter and I face him, so I go out and I play first base. And we got, you know, Randy went out and show that day. I mean he's just go Randy Johnson. And I probably struck out a couple of times over three comfortable for three of the unit. But I remember getting done playing first base for nine innings, and I came in and I'm like, okay, what do I do? Now. Oh, were you at this time? Oh, early twenty mid twenties. What I remember sending out there? First base thinking to myself, is this it like is this all I have to do and no offensive position players. But I mean the grind of catching as we're so easy. Honestly, I think I went in the weight room and worked out for two hours afterwards because I had to something expensive energy 'cause I just stood up there. You know, caught a couple of ground balls saying you don't think it's going to be I, I don't think it's going to the tiny that much. I really don't think he'd be just fine to go out and pitch every fifth day. And then when he's not pitching, he's going to h I even heard some rumors. They might throw him in the outfield. You know, if you're if you're as talented as him, I think, options are, are clearly open if you're an angels. But the first thing I would be focusing on his hey man soon as we get you back on the mound. Yeah. Kind of needs there. Yeah. Offensively we can sustain with pools and trout. And some of the other guys, we got on this ball club, but we need some pitching. Yeah. Yeah. I, I would agree with that. And I wouldn't be surprised to see them go out and get some big big name agents. Would you got on Josh bail? I mean this kid is, is lighten it up near for Pittsburgh, smaller market team? He's, he's got to be one of the he's got to be on his way to an all star game at least at this point. Yeah. I think he's definitely we're talking about it yesterday. The last couple of days in, in the dugout before the game started to who's going to be on the all star team because they have different balloting system, this year, it's going to basically be down the top three guys get voted in. And then those three get to see who vote new gets. You get to see who Sarts Josh bells, everyone number of concessions for, for I it's not a very hitter, friendly park, no PNC in Pittsburgh. It's, it's really not. It's a little bit short on the right field. But he's doing it from both sides of the plate. And that's what I the, the art. Of which hitting, I think, is, is really a loss. Start yet God bless wishes able to do it from both sides and just be that productive. And he's really living up to all the hype that that has been surrounding him since he was drafted when they came, they came here last home stand here in San Diego, and I did a breakdown on, on his swing mechanics. And he's really trimmed a lot of fat off of his of his mechanics. I mean he had a big ope wide open stands big lake kick lotta movement. Now. He's standing a little bit taller, not as big of a leg, kick much more quiet. And as the bigger change was from the left side, because he had to open stance closed off, but the consistency in him. You talked about this last week getting it down getting into hidden position. He he's been special really all season long first base is going to be loaded for all star selects, because there's a lot of first basements plan. Well, I'm most looking forward to hopefully seeing him in the home run derby. I think this homerun derby, has a chance to be special guys like friend mill res-. You've mentioned p the Lonzo Josh bell. There's some sluggers out there, this year that could be fun to watch, especially the way basically can say whatever they want about the baseball. I'm sorry. They are out of this place, here, it Petco park, place where the ball doesn't fly and I'm telling you, they moved at the seats in, but these balls are getting out of here. Upper tank. I mean, it's it's Redick a lot changed as they started building these buildings up behind is almost like there's a Jetstream somewhere in this state flying. I would say that, that is definitely a key because, you know, it's completely different. What now the, the way the ball out of here? But I regardless of here buildings, they put up these balls are just. Going to the different parts of the ballpark. Just doing it to offset, everything is coming out of the bullpen was ninety five to one hundred. Right. So baseball says, okay. We know guys are going to strike out, but if they are able to barrel, then fans wanna seek out of the ballpark, and that's why these walls are flying is is that a misnomer that fans wanna see all home runs because I think it is because I think it's you know what? It's like to me. It reminds me of the three pointer in the NBA. Everybody's take everyone's doing now is like it's not that big a deal, like okay, you shot some three pointers. I was he's about to get to the racket dunk. That's what I wanna see. So it's like okay, everybody's doing that one thing that I will say watching some of these Phillies run the bases talk about a lost art. These guys are there's Bryce Harper a couple of times literally a grumble up the middle and he ends up doing a head first and second base, because he's thinking two out of the box. I love it, right. Putting pressure on the defense because guys in the outfield just don't throw like they used to. They're taking advantage of that. Put pressure on the defense. I remember I got caught up my first game ever Dodger Stadium and Tim Flannery, third base coach for the Padres who you know, very, very well, I remember he pulls me sign, I wasn't the fleetest. I know you are. And he calls me size. Listen it's station station. If a balls hit the right field. He goes Montes out there. He goes, he's got the best arm on the planet. They go. Okay. I, I mean station station. That's the way it is. But that's, that's one of those lost arts in baseball that we talk about money, and we talk about stolen basis. The wake guys throw from the field. No one takes pride in any more. You watch in between innings, and these guys are fifteen feet of part from each other like lobby to each other. What are known as a good army, or no plays long. It's it really is a lost art. When you're not having to do it very much often you forget, that you need to work on. You're right. Because catchers is amazing. We got all these calendars with fantastic. Pop times. Right. But nobody runs a why even get a cancer would pop usually we should just get away from the defensive catcher period at this point, 'cause nobody's running, what is the I mean obviously you need to catch it to be able to call a game. That's really the biggest asset right now the way catchers are being you. You can you either need to hit. Are you need to be able to call an fantastic game in how you're pitching staff? You don't necessarily need to throw because nobody's run. It's a complete lost art. Give give us as fans. Another exciting piece to the game because it just seems like we're, we're running out of exciting. I hear you hear well, look at a different things, and I think that is one of those things that, you know, I think it is a lost art, but they really can help out a ball club. You look at the way, JT real mutual runs a ball game. These pitchers put a lot of a lot of credit is the things that he's putting down. And he takes it takes personal. Yeah. Also has is the same way. Yeah. Struggling offense. But the reason why he's constantly lineup is because how young pitching staff is, and how will he handles, this young pitching staff? I didn't I wasn't a big believer at all in this whole framing and pitches. But I've seen more balls. You get the strike zone on TV got to the filled in circle for strikes. And it's, it's open if it's not a strike. I've seen more open pitches called strikes than I've seen, I think, in my entire life. And I think a lot of it has to do it. And maybe it's because I'm paying attention to it more has to do it. Austin heads is he's, he's able to get turn balls into strikes, by the way, he's receiving it. And this is the first year where I've actually been like, okay, this is an actual real thing. Definitely something to it. It's just I always say you're just presenting the ball to the part a little better. Bad presentation gets you nothing. Exactly. Speaking of Pires, you think we're going to get there where the. Peiser back there. And they're getting told whether it's a baller strike or not. I really hoping that, that's another. That's another exciting point. How many times has a game ended on a play at the plate or at first and you can't even give off a celebration because you gotta wait to see if instant replay is going to actually change it. I wouldn't wanna see that. I, I liked the human air element of the game. We can't be so perfect that we don't have any issues at all. Like there needs to be that there needs to be, you know, we lost a game because it was a bad call. I gotta learn to deal with it. I gotta learn to move on and go move onto the next day. You lose that element. If your hand in the strike zone system computers, speaking of strikes. How about how about this? Let me let me introduce this to you be Commissioner for a second. How about we take the plate, which is seventeen inches wide, and we make it twenty inches wide. I like the way you're talking on. It's an inch and a half. Think about Al small inch and a half is right on either side. You tell me that wouldn't speed the game up by fifteen minutes. A game definitely would. It definitely would we can take away some of the leverage that these pitchers have in handed over to the offense. And exactly right. Exactly. Right. You know. So I just think that would you'd see more swings. You'd see a little bit more aggressive, these guys, these hitters know that taking keyhole a pitch because if it's not there it's going to be a ball. And these unpire I will give them credit and I don't like to give them credit much. But I mean for the most about the box that we see on the television screens that ball is maybe an inch and a half off the plate net. That's why I don't wanna see them go away. Because truth be told when it comes to strikes, most of these guys are pretty good. Yeah. The really good. And they don't miss a lot when they do it's pretty much highlight for us to see. And they're seeing an NFL in a more in a faster paced, and we are looking at we look at it in slow MO and kind of be critical of what's going on. But it's just one of those things that you'd like to see I only only issue, I really have with fires is that they could be a little bit more open. Open to hearing from players when it when, when they approached the right way, right? Sometimes, I mean, like, for instance, we had the other day were a kid gets the kid from the royals gets thrown out through change up and he lost it hits, one of the White Sox in think, in the shoulder he gets checked immediately. I know there was some things going on in the previous series. But you gotta have a little feel. I if I don't know of any big leaguer, that's gonna hit somebody ought to be pits. It's never been done, or the or the you know, you work to full count. And then you Jill somebody in the guy gets thrown out of the game. Listen, if I'm gonna drill I wasted six. My pitch count is, is limited here. I don't need to give away six exactly right. Already out here for hundred pitches this way, six before. Oh, god. But I do agree with that. It's got to be some type of feel there for the for the empire are we headed in the right direction with with some of these suggestions. I love the game. And I love the the way that it's been played for all these years. He still got to keep it the way it is. I think for the moment much change. It could change the fabric of how the game has been played. They may ask you about one of the big, subjects that's been going around. At least early it seems to be always early in a year where you get you get a little a brawl and now the whole conversation of, you know, in home runs or watching home runs go out and how it's perceived this, this whole subject to me has been framed wrong. Right. It's been framed old versus new, but this is used that Kansas City situation for one that was young versus young, no matter how long this game is going to be played there always going to be people that look at that particular subject differently. It's not it's not about these these unwritten rules at everybody likes to talk about this is about competition. If I feel like you're disrespecting me, this is my way of getting back you, right? Wrong or indifferent. That is how most athletes interpret that is always going to be different views on that on one side of the fence or the. Yeah. It's going to be an open ended conversation. Yeah, it really will be because, you know, if you say, well, the guy the home run through his bat and just dog around the bases. And then yeah, the other side that says, oh, make it better pitch right? You know what I mean? That was my dad size. You don't wanna see him. You gotta make a better pitch on the flip side of that. If, if, if you are throwing punch me out, and you chain saw me as you're walking dugout. You should feel some type of way if I get you the next bat, it should be even right that we should feel. Okay. You got me. I got you now we're good. Yeah. I the way I was I hit it. I might look at it for a second. But I always a guy that spreading around the basis, I didn't have very many. I didn't anybody notice that actually hit one another pitch. I didn't hit enough of them to know if I actually gotten. So I wanted to be I wanna be embarrassed. I base of a ball. I thought got out didn't get out. You know, it's funny you hear about some of the old timers and I fortunately have the opportunity to work with Mike Schmidt back in Philadelphia on Sunday day games at home and just to hear him talk about some of the names that, that he's gotten like hitting a home. Run off, Bob Gibson. You know, first of all, that sounds insane. Right. I mean seriously. It's like home. I got hit a home run. A Bob Baath serious. But he said, I literally 'cause Mike Schmidt, had five hundred forty eight home runs. And you can't tell me that he didn't know what was going out right, so Gibson. And then you're, you're thinking yourself, I'm gonna put my head down. He said this to me and run as fast as I can around the basis. And then when I go for my next pet I know I'm gonna wear one on my shoulder. Even even though I ran the basic aren't exactly right. And again that goes to my point is that. No matter how much we wanna talk about these unwritten rules. They're always going to be guys who are for who are against it, and are going to act accordingly how they feel it has nothing to do with unwritten rules or not. It's the same in every other sport guy is running through the lane Dunkin. And celebrate eventually he's gonna come to as going to catch the elbow is chess. And you know, he might get a flagrant foul. I might get a Jeff leg. Wonderful your to probably do now. You know, we go back to Kurt Rambis days, or he gets close line and just to show. But this is my point is a venture Lii is not gonna is never going to change. No matter how much we are outraged about some getting hit in the ribs and you could've killed him in this than the other is never going to change. Because there's always gonna be somebody that feels like you know what? You're, you're personally trying to make me look bad right now. Here's my answer to that. Yeah. So there's there's the end.

Why boycotting games matters (Ep. 83)

"To. Follow Through. All made. A. Cable. Contests Eighty three section one, thirty, eight I'm your host Mark Collie as always I'm joined by bracing and Jacob. How're you guys doing good area not bad. How are you? Jacob? And just before we begin this podcast, we do acknowledge again what's happening in the world we did it. You know a few months ago when George Floyd was killed in Minneapolis and the fact that we have to do it again, which Jacob Blake being killed in Kenosha Wisconsin I mean that. That states enough about what's happening that we haven't been able to fix this even with. All eyes on it and we haven't been able to unite towards this. We just want to recognize that and as we WANNA start the conversation off with today of course. The protests over police brutality over black lives matter have bled into sports and we saw the NBA canceling games I think the movement kind of started with the raptors they said, they were considering it in their gaming Celtics in game one of. Their their NBA postseason game, and then the Milwaukee Bucks took the first step when they. Struck their game they they postponed their game boycotted their game and then it bled over into baseball. We saw few teams on the first night after the bucks decided not to play decided not to play as well, and then the red. SOx. In their Thursday night game against the Blue Jays decided not to play as well to again protests, police, police, brutality protests, social injustice bring attention towards. Jacob Blake Obviously, this is not a politics podcasts as a sports podcast but. I think it's important to talk about this and acknowledge what's happening in recognizing movement This is bigger than sports and we've seen so many people complaining about you know keep politics out of sports what is this going to accomplish but the mere fact that you know we're talking about it on this podcast shows that it's accomplishing its goal it's getting people who normally wouldn't talk about this people of. Privilege, the three of us with a white skin color privilege to ignore these problems it gets us not to ignore them it kind of forces us to consider it and talked about it, and that's why. Personally I think these are incredibly effective. No matter where you stand on the issues just looking at the fact that we are now talking about this conversation trying to figure out the best way to solve it to me that's effective. In that in that shows that you know the red sox deciding not to play the blue jays playing a product of that. Has Accomplished, its goal I don't know you guys think about that. But those are my initial thoughts. Yeah. I have nothing but support and respect for the players across I. Guess like all North American sports because this was kind of like a chain of events throat, not just baseball but through basketball and eventually hockey I have nothing but support for these players. You can understand why they're doing this they they believe and clearly you know with the Jacob Lake shooting. It's. A fact that in just wearing simply wearing a black lives matter shirt isn't cutting an end unfortunately there there's no progress being made early suppliers in believe there's any progress being made. So the players have decided to up it and take another step into action and. By Boycotting Games, this is getting people to talk about it and this is going to be able to acknowledge it about what's going on society and that there's still issues that are unsolved and it's disappointing not because of the boycotting disappointed because that we're still seeing this. I'm sure you guys have seen the video Jacob Blake, we've seen the video of George Floyd. We've seen many other situations throat in the united. States with Ron Taylor and other names. And this is something that you know you have nothing but respect and support for the players. You can understand why they did it and I think the NBA Playoffs will be resuming on Saturday August twenty nine so that they were recording as well as the NHL Playoffs will be. So it was pretty much a few days of a few days of boycotting and this this went viral. This was almost you know sports in world history because you very rarely do see teams. Boycott events or boycott games, and I think they did exactly what they plan to do by making their mark and by pretty much sending a message to everybody that there's taken various seriously as they should, and as we knew and you know they believe that they're not sending their mess or they believe the messages and being received or well received enough, and that is why they did this step. So you know in in that in the baseball perspective kind of started off with after the Milwaukee Bucks. Boycotting their game pretty much. The Milwaukee brewers were next in line just because I guess they're in the same state of Wisconsin where of course, the shooting of Jacob Lake did happen. So they were the next team tobacco and kind of support the Milwaukee Bucks in what you can completely understand and support and respect, and then I think the Seattle Mariners were next because they have the most African American players on their team. Through, the MLB and after that became a chain of fact. occurred. In for the Blue Jays the next day with the Red Sox, deciding to boycott the game. Jackie Bradley Jr. was under the players who kind of led the way in terms of wanting to sit out the game. The Blue Jays actually were ready to play They had a team discussion and ready to play by to prove that everyone comes together. They completely understood Jackie Bradley Juniors decision and as well as the red sox. So they decided to boycott the game as well and support them, and they've been making joint statements. The game is being made up later, but that's not the important part of this conversation The important part of this conversation is at, it's bringing everyone together as it should and I guess that's what everyone was hoping. It would have done and You know who knows where the Holds now. The boycotts are I guess over on Saturday August twenty ninth but I think they got the mess I. Think they did exactly what they're hoping to do by make you know kind of getting attention getting word that racism and two thousand and twenty and social injustice is still very real and it's something that you know needs to end. There's something that needs to be taken. You know it just simply wearing a black lives matter t shirt won't be isn't cutting it and that's the truth and that is why they need to take more action and in terms of trying to you know fight social justice, you know equality. So nothing but respect and support. For the players and what they've done and you know I guess to Mimic Premiere some the players people who believe that you know boycotting games doesn't solve anything. You know maybe they are part of the problem in terms of what athletes have been saying for those who don't agree with it. I understand people want to keep it sports and sports, but that's just something impossible and it's something that you know why would you do that when you can use it as a platform to promote you know our to spread the word and to try and fight racism and social injustice. So nothing but support and respect for the players. I. Liked. You mentioned Brooklyn that this whole boycotting situation went viral because I think that was really the entire point. From my perspective yes. It did kind of suck to not have sports but that was the entire point. The point was to pause sports and to actually think about things that matter other than how many points your favorite player scored or if the raptors are up one oh, like all that really doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things and it's just. I mean it's good on them because I think one of the biggest. Concerns or criticisms coming from the previous protests back in I believe it was mayor earlier in the year was all the violence and one thing that we have seen this year or this time around is that it's not violent. People are protesting. You're saying we're not GONNA play. We want you guys to think about these things we WANNA take action and they're doing it in a way that is not hurting anybody so you really can't complain about that and. I think one thing I want to bring up because A lot of people actually did message me about their opinions and whatnot and I just one thing I wanted to kind of. Bring up is that whether people think that boycotting the Games is the right way to approach the situation you can't deny that it's inevitably done its job which is to focus on the racial issues rather than the sports and like I said in a peaceful way and. You really can't complain because. It's done its job it's been peaceful. It's been. You know. It people have been talking about things and the point wants to start a conversation you look at even just our Canadian. Sports Programs Tim and said on every weekday spent two full episodes. Simply. Just talking about these issues, sports net normally will have a rerun of the latest episode and instead they were doing reruns of the the NHL in the NBA's associations, kind of giving their speeches and talking to ownership and it's Gotten People's head because for me sports. That's really the only channel I. Watch and to have this constantly. Available to me really did help and. You. Know I like how you mark mentioned mark that kind of we. As white guys kind of have a bit of privilege over them and you know for me. Maybe I don't see these issues in a day to day basis or on a day to day basis, but other people do and. It's just it's good to bring these things up because like you said, what what's been donyo putting black lives matter all over the fields and the courts and whatnot hasn't. Necessarily had the the impact that they had expected and they went up. Then you really can't complain about that and. It's just it's unfortunate that they had to get to the situation but I think. What they did definitely is good for the world because a lot of people watch sports a Lotta people love sports and now that that's taken away from them. That's what they're talking about why he was taken in the issues that the players are preaching and it's just. I. Really can't complain at first a lot of people like I said, we're very critical of it but I think as it's going on and progressing people are starting to realize okay. These players actually do have a point and there's more things to worry about than just how many home runs your favorite guy hit last night there's. There's actual issues going on in the world and Like you said, Bryson disrespected the players because this was not an ownership thing that the Milwaukee Bucks they decided to do this as a team and all these other teams decided to do this. It wasn't like. Adam Silver, the commissioner or whoever said Okay you guys we're not GONNA we're. Not. GonNa play we're GONNA sit out. It was knows the players that said we want to do this and I think that. That really shows that the players actually care and I really can't complain. Yeah, I mean. This conversation is making us talk about this and like it's not going away if we talk about like the same facts persist. Black people in the united. States are three and a half times more likely than their white counterparts to be shot by police. That's just a fact and hat's wrong and we have to fix that and we have to acknowledge that and you know you can say that these conversations don't really change anything know that might be true of the conversations we had back in May over George. Floyd over the Minneapolis protests and riots but. Now I think they we have no choice right? We're seeing the. NBA. Those players strike. They said, we're not going to go back on the court until we get something, you know the bucks they called the Wisconsin General they talked about you know how do we make sure this change happens what we put into our statement to make sure that change actually happens. They've talked about encouraging the most constant state legislator to come back into session and consider these police reforms. They've pressured the NBA to donate I think it's Three hundred million dollars to social justice initiatives the Oakland athletics a team in Major League baseball the Tampa. Bay. Rays both those teams have contributed millions of dollars towards these initiatives and putting money where the words are in terms of fixing these problems. So yes, this these conversations in this collective action actually does change something and it's been far too long that we've gone without solving these problems and you know just one last point to bring up for anyone who says you know just shut up pitch or shut up in dribble. Why don't you just watch Battle Butts Jen just watch robots play game. There was a hockey player who posted a video on twitter talking about this if you don't want players to talk about politics if you don't want players to show emotion, go watch battle butts go watch robots. Playing baseball, they're playing hockey or playing basketball. These are human beings on the court. They have opinions and people. Say. Sports is a distraction from real life. I. Think Sports is a microcosm of real life. It doesn't distract from your life. It personifies it exemplifies it it. You know take things to the next level. So yes, this is entirely justified. It's far too long and I think we are actually hopefully now seeing real changes in again, total respect to anyone who decided to sit out in games whether it'd be Mookie Betts whether it be Matt Camp whether it be Jackie Bradley Jr. and I think we're all in agreement that it's been far too long with these problems persisting. But there was real baseball this week and As weird as it sounds, we still want to talk about baseball on the Blue Jays choir Taiwan Walker last time we talked the Blue Jays had acquired Daniel Vocal back now they've acquired walker as well from the Seattle Mariners I'd say that's the biggest news of this weekend Walker. Could be a big piece of this team moving forward. We see Matt Shoemaker on the injured list trump thorn is out for the year. So bluejays have to rotation spots in you'd fill and Walker should figure into that a lot and I think he the trade firm Kenneth comes as a symbol of what the Blue Jays are trying to do this kind of that you know pass the talk of you know we're interested and People are calling us all the time about our players I, think this shows that the blue jays are kind of serious about pursuing something this year they're they're serious about you know improving the team in in yesteryear out of their competitive schedule but they're okay with you know going out and buying someone and the team better to compete this year and I think it's a really big move for the Blue Jays. What do you guys? I really liked to move that the Blue Jays made, and this is something that I said last week that Ross Atkins had no choice. To pick up the phone and make a move. Now, regardless of he was training for one of those to ruin pitches on Pittsburgh was Trevor Williams to Chad cool. That was definitely GonNa be a little more expensive because of the contracts. There's there under team control for a couple more years, and then tie walker has always been kind of in the realm of discussions. But. The only problem are the only thing that would make a different than any other trade is that he is a rental so it won't cost as much but. Going back to you know the move obviously move makes complete sense rather than the Daniel go back trade but this is something that Jas desperately needed with pretty much half of their half for most of the rotation on the journalists and there's no timetable for people like Napier Sooner Matt Shoemaker Coming Back. So this is something that the add to do. You can't just keep having bullpen games or I believe before the game was boycotted on Friday. Friday was supposed to be bullpen game and you know you can't keep having bullpen games. Forever especially in you know I'm I know the Russia's are expanded by that's just not ideal. So this is something that Jay's went out and did and they got Taiwan Walker for a player to be named later, and the only thing we know about that players that he's not on the sixty man player pool for twenty twenty. So that's pretty much all we know and I'm sure it won't be announced her or at least it could be announced at any time. Doesn't mean it has announced now but Taiwan Walker a solid depth pitcher. He he eats a lot of innings. You know he's not an as but he's He's a he's a solid edition of the rotation, his an area four, this year, and he's got a record of two and two. He's made five starts. So what he's bringing to the table his innings and he is going to be you know a solid part of the rotation he's here to stay for this year. Who knows what happens beyond this year with him hitting me open market that'll be interesting to see but. The jays have you know they clearly make by making this moving acquiring something? It shows that they are somewhat buying me because if they weren't, they wouldn't they probably would have sold something they would they would have sold. It would have done a different type of deal but in this case would pretty much half of the rotation on the injured list they had no choice. But I do think that this is a good move and a good sign that they are kind of near the end of the rebuilder at least. They're being a little bit more serious of competing. Even going into doesn't and twenty one, it will be our. It's supposed to be a full season next year but there's there's lots of rumblings about the expanded playoffs coming here to stay for the future so that obviously will have a an impact to see where the current state is because the alias pretty much dominated by the Yankees or at least on paper, it's supposed to be not exactly in twenty twenty. But a good move by the Blue Jays. Good seller rotation piece. One at a time in terms of if we're GONNA, if he's going to be resigned or not he's making his debut. Today on Saturday against the Orioles. So it'll be interesting to see how we adapt. Now he pitches in, I just wanted to say to. What a wild twenty four hours for Taiwan walkers because he's been one of the leading activists on our previously when he was on the mariners in terms of the fight for black lives matter in he was one of the. Leading factors for the mariners postponing their game on Friday and the next day he found out that his house was destroyed. In the recent hurricane in the United States in believe it's Louisiana where he lives in the season. So what what what a wild twenty, four hours for Taiwan Walker and I guess didn't you know he was activated last night as well and he's going to be pitching. Today. So I can't believe the twenty four hours he's had and Kudos to him for showing up and being ready to pitch and. Hopefully. He helped his team towards the playoff. Bush. Yeah. I I said last week how I really didn't think the mood. We're GONNA make any deals however I feel like this is. Kind of a deal that they made out of a necessity because if you look at their rotation, it was supposed to have Pearson and shoemaker are both on injured list trend. Thorton we learned yesterday that he shut down for the whole year. So without Taiwan. Walker, it's really just hundred review and Chase Anderson and then a bunch of open guys. So, you had to make a deal and. I'm happy that they made this one player to be named later leads knowing that it's not on the sixty man player pool no means that. It's not like the David Price rental where you gave up half of your good pitchers or at least. Good pitchers at the time A, they got a guy that can eat innings up. They got a guy that's reliable and I think you know that's what they needed and. It, I think it definitely will help them push for the playoffs because as I. said last week the bullpen it's just been so overused and it's just not sustainable and even last night with Jordan Romano having to leave the game that's very concerning. If you know he wakes up today and dozen tests in that's that doesn't end up. Going in his favor than blue jays bullpen is even more in trouble but I mean overall is solid pitcher I think. Like I said, he's just GONNA really eat up innings. He's GonNa you know he's going to be reliable. He's going to help the team win and I think it's good. As you mentioned bracing yesterday are on magazine Friday or whenever the the boycott took place it was supposed to be a bull pin day and it just seems as if. Bullpen days are happening way too often for this team now, and now they don't have that at least for one more start and. I'm happy about that I mean. Like I said the bullpens eventually going to go through a burnout and. This year I think Walker. Rental he might only be here for two months if they make the playoffs but. He's a good rental and I mean. Depending on how the rotation wants to look for next year you know maybe they want to resign them. It'll be tough I think in this kind of weird situation. The way the market is but overall I think it's a good deal. They needed to make this because they're bullpen just way over us and you cannot. Go into a playoff push with. Most of your rotation. Injured and uncertain for the foreseeable future. Especially, considering the season's only two months long. So you miss you know you have. A Guy Miss, you know four starts, five star that's half the season and. Maybe ninety I don't even know, but the they they had to do this I'm happy they got this guy and I'm happy they didn't go out and try to deploy deplete their farm system but I'm happy that they didn't go out and. Make a move where they traded a I leverage guy for somebody that had a potential to come back but they weren't sure because. In, Twenty fifteen, there's nothing worse than depleting your farm system for a playoff run but. Overall I think really can't be mad at this deal because like I said, they didn't really give that much up and they got a guy that can eat innings with they desperately need right now but even as their or hopefully as their other starters start to come back. That's an even more solid rotation and I think that will definitely help them in the in the future. But even for right now like I said, it's just It's a good deal that they had to make an it. It helps them immediately, but it can also and we'll also hopefully help them in the future when they get healthier. I think the. The positioning of this trait is interesting because like you said, Jacob, it's probably more out of necessity than actually trying to jump out to a head start trying to actually compete this year, but it's weird because the language and the rhetoric we're hearing from Ross. Is. owed. This team still wants to add Oh, the Blue Jays are making a push this year. Oh, we're getting so many calls you know we have calls coming of everywhere because you know we're so popular we want we want to trade all these players were involved in the trade market and we're seeing stuff from Jon Morosi. The analyst from MLB network posting on his twitter that this trade for Taiwan walkers, the biggest trade of the trade market for any team so far we're hearing a lot of rhetoric indicates the bluejays are making a push but at the same time, if you just look at it logically like they're short to starters, you can't have a bullpen day every day Trent thorns out for the remainder. Of the season, he needs someone to fill the gap. So I I guess I'm kind of on the fence as to whether this is actually indicative of a broader push by this team or whether it's really just saying, Hey, we you know we have whatever four, five, six starts towards the end of the season that we need someone to fill. We're going to get walking to do it so. A little bit of a weird situation. They're not totally knowing why the Blue Jays are acquiring and whether it's for postseason pusher whether it's you know just to fill the gap in the rotation. Yeah when when you think about it in terms of it, being a move of necessity over them, believing that they can win. I guess the only thing that are that comes to my mind for them or to try to convince you guys that this is something that kind of as much as it is a necessity they also believe and seriously contending. There is a sixty man player pool in there. There is thirty other players I believe it's in Rochester where they've been are where they've been kind of working out. I don't know I just you have to imagine that if they weren't there if they weren't at all in making a move, they would be you know they'd be calling up guys you know multiple pitchers to fill in that spot throughout the rest the season there's so many options in Rochester was starting pitchers there's Jacob way back who keeps going up and down there Sean Reid Foley there's so many other names even Anthony. K. Who's been such a solid bullpen piece made me move him To the rotation, call up a reliever from Rochester like there's so many things that they can work around or fiddle around if they're not being there. But that's my opinion. If there aren't being serious of you know acquiring a pitcher, but then they decided to kind of go around that possibility of adding from the alternate side because again, they can because there's thirty other players over there who are capable of playing some maybe not we'll be ready but some that could probably give you. Four or five innings if you really want them to out of the fifth starting spot. So that's the thing I look at it from and I i. think it's a good sign that they went out in the market and did this and if Taiwan Walker is the biggest pretty much you know guy that was trade are on the trade bayless this year it makes complete sense because of the year we're having again and it comes in the trade that's not very matt. It's not a very big trade-in we knew that was going to be happening. In the season with even with no minor league season, we knew that the deals we're going to be a lot more. One for one, rather than you know one guy for a player on the roster player to be named. Later you know like the way it usual regular baseball trades work. Either acquiring a depth starter or somebody WHO's elite? So that's the one thing I look at it from I? Don't know how much. You guys agree though but I just feel like if they were that serious of winning I, feel like they would have just found somebody on Rochester to fill the void because again we're halfway through the the season, our just centering September. It's the last week of August. So it's not like they're just starting the season now it's halfway through and they could have easily found gotten innings from somebody else I. think it's A. Bit of a combination of both because like you said, if they weren't serious, they could've easily just internally promoted somebody. But at the same time, I think that Ross Atkins Electric Pyro, they're not idiots they know that the Blue Jays playoff spot and that you know on good month baseball or even a couple more weeks a good baseball means that they probably take that last spot over the orioles and you know it just. It does make sense from both perspectives because like I said, they do need pitchers L- quite literally speaking but at the same time. They. Also, they know that they have a shot at the playoffs and this is kind of a subtle way of. Giving them kind of edge over the orioles say, Hey, we got another good pitcher and we've got hopefully two more coming back soon, the. Overall you she's a little bit of both like I said, they need pitchers but they also. You know they're not oblivious. They know that they have actual shot at making the playoffs this year and they want to make a push because. I mean what would be better to experience for these major league or young major leaguers like the Blue Jays have then to make the playoffs because we've seen all throat sports when a young team makes the playoffs all here. Even if they lose his all the experience was great for them they've kind of learned to deal with these. The Higher Leverage High Stress Situations I. Think it would definitely benefit them and yeah overall I mean. Hopefully Taiwan walkers UN I don't think he's necessarily going to be like a David price where he goes nine and one or and. Is the single reason why they could easily make the playoffs but. Overall, you know this is a good depth move that. Definitely will will benefit them in the immediate future being tonight, and then hopefully down the road and even in the playoffs. There's no question it helps them I think they they obviously have gone out and gun. Better pitchers I mean Taiwan Walker. He had a really bad I start this. Here's subsequent for start have been solid. He has a four point zero zero you're a this season. So He's obviously you're strong starter a little bit of an injury history in two, thousand, eighteen, twenty nineteen but he's a good guy I don't think anyone's questioning the deal. It's a really good deal for the Blue Jays issues the intentions, but I mean, they give up a player to be named. Later we've learned I think Jim Bowden of MLB network I believe who reported that they got on the player to be named later won't be on the sixty men roster, but it will be a players in the top thirty. Prospects for the Blue Jays system. So giving up a little bit obviously, but I think it's low risk. Reward is a good deal from the blue. Jays, and I think everyone's happy with it The question now becomes are the Blue Jays done we've heard Ross Atkins say that they aren't that they wanNA keep adding and we've heard some other. Name Bounce around the Blue Jays on trevor. Williams and Chad. Call both starting pitchers for the Pittsburgh pirates they've been on the trade market and Blue Jays have been connected to them. Jon Morosi of MLB network reported a couple of days ago that the Blue Jays were interested in Williams and call Williams is twenty eight he debuted with pirates in two thousand sixteen. and as meet East twenty, six starts every season and has an era of four point one over the season since twenty sixteen. Five starts this year as of a few days ago when this rumor was going around, Williams held opponents to three runs or less each time out and August fifth his best start he pitched seven innings only gave up one run against the Minnesota Twins Chad cal the other name that the Blue Jays were connected to. He's a year younger than Williams. So He's twenty seven also made his debut in two thousand, sixteen He missed the entirety of last season undergoing Tommy John Surgery, and this year through five Games two point eight, four, your A. Three starts to relief appearances. So both of these pictures are very good and they're both under team control until twenty twenty two. So I think the conversation around these guys is a little bit different than Walker because Walker, as we mentioned, he's just a rental but Cole and Williams are. Guys who would be with this team until two, thousand, twenty two, which plays a little bit into the. Blue Jays. Picture of contention, you know they're contingent schedules. So I personally am more fond of potential deals to acquire Williams and call than I. Am of a deal for Taiwan of course, Williams and call are gonNA come at a higher price but I think they offer. A lot more reward for bluejays they're younger same mentioned more team control. Or the Blue Jays done like I said earlier, are they done or are they still going to push for other guys like Williams call or are they just done in the starting pitcher mark? Maybe you know they go after infielders. Now we know they have a week bench in terms of infielders Joe Panic brain, injury, Santiago Espinel, and that's it. And I mean panic and jewelry are pretty much auto matic out in the in the offensive side of things. So are they done pitching wise or are they still going to push for Williams call some other guys? Yeah and even to add onto that Brennan. Juries I even on the active roster anymore. So they they've clearly had enough of him. He was struggling at the plate. The only good thing about him is that he was a great defensively but unfortunately, you know the batting line he was sitting isn't going to cut it and especially for two competing. In the playoff spot you just you can't afford to have that unfortunately. So. But in terms of the trading work because I've been getting a lot of questions to are they done and the more I think about it. I. The more I don't know because I think about it from both sides of them possibly being done, and then possibly you know saying you know screw this, we want more and they could easily be thinking that. You know as much as like you said, mark the prospect they giving up in Taiwan Walker deal is a top thirty prospects. He's still isn't part of the sixty man player pool. So you have to imagine it's a prospect that the you know don't I guess aren't too fond is other ones and you know maybe he doesn't have a role on this team in the future I don't know it. All depends on the player gets revealed but. going to those two pictures on the pirates I just when you look at it now. So the Kerma tation with people healthy are sorry with Kurt rotation now is real. Rourke. Anderson and then you have walker now and I guess there's a void in the fifth spot because you're missing Matt Shoemaker, Nate, Pearson Trend Lauren but he won't be back this season If you go out and acquire another starter, where does that leave Shoemaker Pearson because you know you have to I personally think they're done now with the starting rotation because of those two pitchers who are supposed to be back this year barring any changes or barring any last-minute news that we get well I think I. Think Thornton's for the whole he he is. So yeah, that's what I mean. So other than Ford, you have shoemaker and Pearson who are supposed to be coming. Back at some point, and that also leaves Oh odd man out when you look at it now because there's obviously unless they go a six man rotation route but I doubt they were gonna I doubt they do that in September I feel like that was something they would already have done maybe at the beginning of the season, but I could be wrong. We have seen bluejays do a six man rotation before regardless of you like it or not. It has happened before even under the same management. So I guess you can't rule that out but I don't see that as as possible as it could have been maybe an audit at the beginning of August but anyways. Someone's going to have to be the odd man out and I don't see if you're adding another starter. I don't see you know the point of wanting to go through that massive. Making the decision and moving a bunch of starters to the bullpen even though we've seen that enough this year as much as pitchers in the bullpen and pitching good you don't want to keep doing that and keep doing that and I think Ross. Atkins was actually asked about the possibility of Pearson coming back his reliever and he just didn't seem to fond of an on. The media call that he had but I guess it's something that you can't rule out based off the current state of the team. But if you WANNA look at it from another perspective, maybe the Blue Jays feel like they could make a move and as much as your trading for Williams are call on Pittsburgh. They are additive control for a few more years and Match maker and Chase Anderson Hardened signed for next year also so it's not like that the the rotation isn't full for next year as of now, there are going to be open spots as we know from the open, just because pitches are going to be hitting on the open market. So maybe this is the deal that the Jase feel like they can't refuse and they make a deal and then they kind of deal with the situation of WHO's going to be in the rotation who's going to be out of the rotation, maybe a six man rotation. But when I look at it, there's more need of the defensive play now because when you look at the J. Badge. You have Daniel Vogel back and ready to less to begin with, and those two are pretty much identical players who can only play First Base D. H.. So that's not exactly ideal in terms of want a defensive fielder. So you know, and especially, with Brandon, deriving option down, he was the corresponding move for Walker being added to the roster. Almost. Like they need another, they do need another bat that can play the Infield they're completely outfield. Can Somewhat head, but you know majority field and that's what they're looking at looking at run prevention even Ross Atkins. Who Very rarely tells the media anything he's the King of going on for about one minute or two minutes and got absolutely nothing out of him in those two minutes other than him sing we're very excited and I, give I give him credit for that. But he even said himself run run prevention run prevention and when he's saying that you obviously know or maybe whatever it was a slip up or not. That he's being serious in the team serious about Adam and I feel like that would be the next target. I was thinking about bullpen as well. But there's too many pictures down there right now I don't know maybe Jordan Jordan Romano injury changes things but I feel like when you look at it now I feel like the leading candidate for another trade if they weren't done would be adding a defensive player who has a you know a decent to or mediocre to a decent bad but is more focused on fueled in. Joe Panic also hasn't been playing that well, but he can somewhat fueled good and I said Brennan jury isn't on the active roster anymore. So it's almost like they need an it's almost like a necessity with the previous rate for Taiwan Walker that need to go out and add another bench piece who can field because I like I said, rowdy tillerson Daniel Vogel back it's pretty much. It's almost it's almost like it's just the same player bits just putting one spot in terms of their flexibility on the bench in where they're going to play. So you need other options and that's just the truth. I like you send bracing I. Really don't know if they're going to be making anymore trades. Starting pitching they're done I think the Taiwan Walker trade was probably the only one they going to make if they even made it, which we now know they did. I really don't know how much more they want to do because like you said they have. On paper. Including the injuries they have Pearson and shoemaker on their rotation or in their rotation and. Eventually. Things are going to happen. You know if they come back I I really doubt that they wanna put either of them in the bullpen. So you know they have one to. Six starters on paper right now, I I really don't know if they want to. have a six man rotation i. mean they obviously could just throw somebody in the bullpen but I don't think that's very likely and if you add you know another pitcher than that just over complicate things although I mean, they can deal with it. It's not like they're. Like you said, they could make a deal and then figure this stuff out later. They could do that. I just don't know if that's something that they want to do. But. I really don't know I mean like you said with the bench, it is very concerning because the bottom of the order. When no matter who it is whether it's Joe Panic or Brandon jury or anyone it's just. Like you said, it's an automatic out and even. Last Night I. I can't remember exactly who it was. I. Believe, it was joe panic or somebody. They were tr the back in the tenth inning. The Blue Jays had the run on second obviously and they tried to bunt it but whoever was Straight up and then it was automatically one out and that could have been. I mean obviously the blue won that game. But if they had lost it, you could have said well. They. They missed the bunt and then. I believe it was Kevin because you hit a deep fly ball could have been the the deciding factor in the end they have tied it. I mean, obviously they won. So I'm not going to nitpick a game that they won but. You. WanNa have guys that you're not seeing how hit can you can you please because I mean? Bunting is I mean it's part of baseball but you you don't want have an automatic butter. Especially, we've seen a few times Santiago Espen all he's bundled with two strikes at times because it's just. His his his average is. Not, where you want it to be. But I I feel like they might just leave it. You see like I said earlier with the player pool they could just promote internally but I'm not sure I really don't know if they're gonNA make any trades I mean obviously with the Vogel back now you have three first base slash h guys but we'll see you know how they handle that you know if rowdy struggles or you know one guy struggles or they could be sent down or are they going to sit out until they? The. Until, the other guy proves that he's also struggling I really don't know. But. In terms of the pictures you mentioned with team. Control. Up until two thousand, twenty, two, I not sure. I've like I said the with the trains they have made for Vogel back in Taiwan. Walker, they've been very low re leverage deals where you're not giving up you know an immediate player on your at least on the player pool or a prospector anything because. It's it's just not that type of year where aid the prospects aren't playing unless you're in the player pool and it's just. I don't know if they want to do that in. It. It's just I. think Overall, they are there probably are done but. Mainly, due to the fact that they don't want to give up too many guys. For rental guys or Even, for team control I don't think that they want to risk losing guys. Now when you know next year, they could play with. The fact that hopefully everything goes back to normal. I just WANNA leave it I'm it's. It's such a weird year because as we said, they were not supposed to be overly good this year they weren't supposed to contend that as much as they are but. Hey it's a good problem to have, but I just think overall they're probably done making deals and it's just it's kind of will work with what we've got for the rest of the year. I'm right there with you I think the Blue Jays. have been active in the trade market just to see what they can do not just for this year as we've said with rentals like Taiwan Walker, but for years to come but I think in the case of William and charcoal I think their team control doesn't totally matchup with the Blue Jays competitive schedule, I think they want pitchers who are more can avoid just breaking into the majors. Now who might be under control until you know twenty, twenty, four, twenty, five, twenty, six, I think they want pitchers who are under more team control and who truly lineup with our competitive schedule because you know Williams called, it'll be useful for a year or two and then. Who knows? What happens whether bluejays extended whether lueders trade them you know whatever happened so I think. They are done. I think they don't want to give up too many prospects for a season that in most cases doesn't really matter not being said the bluejays seventy, two percent of making the postseason. So who knows what's going to happen? But we're keeps going up. Keeps going up for staying there and I might be wrong in I would love to be wrong but. I. Jacob, you wanted to talk about high engineer you and how he's been playing this year and in and since his first two starts, which obviously goes planned his first star gave up three runs in four point, two innings his second start give five runs in four point one inning since then he's been lightsout, he's obviously been the bitch bist pitcher around the Blue Jays in his month of August has been insane. He's made five starts each of them either five or six innings pitched. He's only given up more than one earned run into noting once and that was last night in the game against the Baltimore Orioles aware he was charged with two earned runs. Honestly, he shouldn't have been. You know there was that play and I don't know what it was that WHO's a throw from Travis Shaw over I and it bounced on the Ground Vladmir grow junior couldn't pick it I think should have been charged as an air instead of. instead of an earned run, you know he's been lightsout bottom line. He's been pitching very very well, and regardless of the struggles bluejays have had elsewhere in their rotation. The success of review has helped them a lot and I think he's one of the key reasons why they are where they are right now or I'm happy that you mentioned the situation last night because that. I'm. Surprised that that was. Not. An. Scored as an error, it definitely should have been but yeah, hundred review he is being. Lights out pretty much since the calendar moved to August and it's just. It's it's been amazing obviously as I two starts he allowed eight runs over nine innings which I mean I was not as good as everybody expected but. He has since then. Pitched Twenty, eight innings including the start against Baltimore and Through that he's only had five earned runs should be three but. Whatever it is what it is, which is. In that time frame that is a one, six, one era which. I looked at the MLB rankings which would actually put him as through our in fourth place in MLB era just under. Lance Lynn. One. Fifty nine era which. Is Crazy to think about and. Even, including his first two starts to Sierra is three sixteen, which is still. With all things considered good I mean it's higher than his career to ninety nine era but. You know it's it is what it is. Hill I have a feeling as Yarra will dip below two by the time this season's over and. It's just. I don't know. I feel like every start that he's made ever since those first two starts is just been. It's been so fun to watch because he's just he's lights out in my opinion he doesn't even look phase on the mound and. I mean. Obviously, he's not the guy that he's not a marcus stroman he's going to show. His displeasure or his excitement with everything that goes on in the game but. He just he dialed in and he he literally looks like he owns the mound and that he believes that he can get anybody on baseball and it's just. In my opinion, this might be controversial but I feel like review the first true ace that the Blue Jays have had since David Price. Now obviously had and good starters with Estrada happen even Stroman at times but. Ryu Has. In my opinion being better than them and I mean, it is only what six starts I believe but. When you look at the fact that they have a big name eighth for the next three seasons after this one. This I it just. It makes the Blue Jays a really good team and it makes them look like a good team on paper and I mean. One thing that the Blue Jays as well as the raptors kind of struggle with being the only Canadian team in the League is they don't get as much coverage. From the American broadcasters, even when they have good players but I think when you get a guy like Ryu who? Came from such a big market like the dodgers it had such a good season and is now having a really good season again it just. It makes the Blue Jays get more attention but at the same time, even just for the fans that makes it more fun for them because like I said He. Been One of the best pitchers in baseball if you. If you don't include his first two starts and even with that he's Being easily the starter for the Blue Jays with those too bad starts and it just. Honestly the. I am. I definitely. I won't say. But I was a little bit worried after review, I starts because I mean obviously everybody is always concerned about all the American league switching to the National League or vice versa what has that going to translate? but he has. You've been amazing I. Really don't know how else to put that, but it's just In, my opinion this is the Blue Jays. This ace the I as in a long time and I am I'm just. In, all honestly have I. Coming from Toronto, the Toronto sports market it. Yeah. There's been good players to all the teams, but it's it's kind of weird because we don't usually get those big name guys all the time or very often, and to finally have somebody like that it it just. It makes the blue. Jays. Look good and review I mean follow him on social media and he honestly he loves it here in his press conference back in like November I. Think it was he expressed how happy he was to be here even. His instagram and it's you know it's a screams Toronto blue jays everywhere. He's happy to be here and I think to have a guy that's so good but also. So. Excited to be part of the Blue Jays definitely. You know what? As a fan? It makes me very happy and I'm. Like I said this is. The Blue Jays best pitcher and I, think he. Definitely. The best that Ross Atkins Extra Pyro of made in my opinion. Yeah there's no nothing controversial. What you said about him being as because he is the ace of this team is the first days. On this team since potentially David price and he's being paid like an AC's being paid for years and he's being paid eighty million dollars to do so. So there's nothing controversial that and You know going back to his first two starts like you said, Jacob. Anything concerned about her to Concerned about to begin with you say, make for his slow to start just see your twenty twenty and I think that's a fair excuse to make he ramped up along with every other pitcher. He's ramped up activities within a matter of two to three weeks and he came out and you know the first few starts was during high pitch counts WHO's probably getting tired his. Stamina wasn't all there and there's nothing really for me to criticize him for her and then I think that you know the next three starts as much as he still hasn't he has sharp and I think he can even more sharp based off of his numbers. He hasn't won sixty one year a in the month of August. So I think that s says enough and I do think that he could even better. In terms of getting his overall numbers down as we head into September and You know he's he is the real deal and this is why he will the the Blue Jays went out and paid the sky eighty million dollars to come here he's been. Even other than skill and potential. He actually has been healthy and that's a good thing. Knock on wood because he has battled so many injuries in the past you know maybe if you want to blame or maybe if you WANNA take a look at that for him, not really pitching deepen games right now. Maybe the JAYS are being cautious. But the other thing that is factual is that he has a high pitch count he was throwing you know yesterday when he left his start after succeeding his, he was almost one hundred pitches to begin with. So the only thing that he's been struggling within his past few searches keeping his pitch count Low. So that's one thing that could probably be fixed and addressed Liam dealt with it before. But this is why the Jays went out and got review. He is the course our he is the leading Piece to this rotation and you know after this year, you haven't for three more years and you know you covered it all pretty much Jacob but you know there's no surprise to his success that he's hide your and I do think he can be even more better in terms of more strikeouts, maybe less hits and more. Less walks as well but just a little bit more sharp continued to get that whip down. But Hundred Review you know I know a lot of people were concerned at first for the first starts but there really wasn't anything to be concerned about saying that again and I think the month of August reflected that and you know we're only halfway through. So He's Got, another five starts to go around there or maybe less than that maybe about four but heading into the playoffs to he's the one that you WanNa have leading the way and you know you hope he stays healthy as he has so far and if he has I, think the that puts the Jason an even better position as they head towards a playoff push. I think that thing with Marco Estrada I know we're talking boat. Being the Blue Jays I as but I would say. I think. Estrada was an ace of this team. Except for the fact that he didn't feel like he wasn't paid like an ace, he didn't have that type of contract. He didn't have I guess kind of anticipation or I'm name recognition that normal ace would have that you would have with a guy like high engine review but. On the contrast with a guy like you, he's paid Lincoln as. A nation, he a name recognition of an ace. So I think it's different I. think he does feel like the first true as the Blue Jays since David person that's what makes it so exciting and certainly, bluejays are lucky to have them. And and hopefully he's lucky to be on the Blue Jays should they make the postseason this year which of course, we will never stop talking about as long as it stays up around seventy percent, and hopefully it increases over the next week. The last thing we wanted to touch on just a tiny bit. We don't really have any updates but journal Romano we spoke about it a little bit in passing earlier apparent injury to his right Middle Finger in yesterday's game He can. He threw a few pitches he was looking down at it. He was kind of shaking his hand which I think, Mike, Wilner. Speculated that that would indicate that his hand felt non Morris his finger felt numb again like I said, we don't know any of the details of it Speaking of someone who knows nothing about pitch scripts or throwing pitches or pitch or whatever. I would speculate that it's not a blister issue because if I remember correctly. Aaron Sanchez with his Bush during issue, it was on his index finger because when he threw his pitches and most pressure was on his index finger. So if it's an injury with his middle finger, I would guess it's not a blister issue it might be a fingernail issue. It might be a problem in terms of I guess a nerve issue is another possibility. We really have no idea just speculation at this point, but we do know that if the Blue Jays. For ten days, fifteen days, whatever it might be it's definitely gonNA hurt this team. Honestly happens I will. Probably, cry like I'm not even sure. He. Aside. From Anthony Bass is definitely been one of the Blue Jays if not blue Jays best reliever he. He's been lights out all season I. think he went nine innings or nights he got a no hitter throw nine innings. He's just been. He's been lights out throughout the entire season even now is a one, twenty, three Ra including his. One third of an inning with the the one run allowed last night against the orioles but. He. Has. He has been lights out and. We we mentioned earlier in the year how Jays they can't afford to lose congeals. But this I think even a little bit worse if they were to lose obvious I don't want to over speculator start rumors because as of right now is Saturday morning there are no updates on him yet I literally just refreshed every sports site that I could and there are no updates yet so. Let's hope this is something where he just felt something weird and wakes up and it's gone or it's a it's an easy fix but losing him. When, you already have a depleted bullpen. Is Not good and I would be very very concerned and I'm not going to say it's going to destroy the chances of making the playoffs but. If you're in the playoffs and you don't have him or if you're in that last game where you have to win it in order to make the playoffs. I want him in the bullpen are on the on the mound. So. Prayers fingers crossed any type of good luck that I can. Somehow create, I will send it to him because we Honestly. The Blue Jays need him and if he is injured, even if it's just for ten days, fifteen days like you said mark that's. Most of the rest of the season. So you were how many there actually the halfway point. So that'd be almost about half. Half of what's left so You you can't afford to lose him and that would be very detrimental to them. Stiffling going to be a big blow. The only thing that I can think of that would kind of mitigate the effects is if Ken Giles came back at the same time as Ramana hitting the injured list and Kinda counteract But yeah, I, mean, the Blue Jays pitching has been the story of this season because it's been great despite the injuries. But if Amato gets injured I don't know how that can hold up in the bullpen. That's now we're going to have to rely on Anthony Bass more heavily aged colmer heavily. Rafael. Valise more heavily even guys like soon Yamaguchi who? I want to mention is pitching really well now like he may have earned himself the last spot in the blue jays rotation if they don't fill it with a trade based on his appearance that he went I, think four innings gave up one run three hits if I'm not mistaken. so He's been pitching. Amazing but. Yeah. If they lose their motto, IT'S A. Begin tax for the bullpen and it might again force their hand like it didn't rotation to acquire a reliever or bullpen arm but I guess we'll find out by the time you're listening to this podcast. You've made no more details on his injury than we do now as of Saturday morning. But thank you to everyone who listened to this episode, and again as we mentioned earlier, please continue to educate yourself and continue the conversation about police brutality.

"Welcome back to starting nine. Owed one hundred Sierra Jared selling hundred fucking times already. Wow. The same crew say, three the entire time, not many bands do that. A lot of shout Pete best when you that's tough buddy, that's tough. But you have a lot of lot of podcasts out there star one way, manned up at different way. This we've got the, the three of us J. The smartest man on the podcast. Dallas, Brayden the craziest man on the podcast and myself, not even really sure why am year. Like we did the hair your hair. Let's be real has irate now big-league lettuce folks were talking about. We're talking about here. This is lettuce patch. That's people are trying to me over the weekend being like what are you trying to do? Look like Bryce Harper Zada fucking it supposed to be an insults. He's the most Anson kind, the leak Bryce Harper's if Bryce Harper wasn't married. He'd be pulling more more rule of luggage cheap shaver with fucking big-league. Let us badging absolutely not gonna shame me into looking fly as fuck. Sit in front route Yankee Stadium over the weekend. And goaty came over Red Sox. First base coach goody. He said, I was trying to Jack Rick Courcelles look again. Another very handsome very wealthy. Very desirable, man. Very successful man for the trophy case. So do you have pictures at home of these is there like a, if there is a celebrity hair progression free you corrobos? Yeah. Like, you know how you know that t shirt the Evelyn a man, you got the fucking eight just drag his knuckles, eventually becomes, you know, any wrecked shell of a human like most of us. What are, what would be your celebrity progression? Your your hair. So because early on you had to like you had the you had to, like Jason state them with a decent hairline Nolan on, you know. And then you kinda your graduated into like a I believe what's the guy from that show? Blossom are you are old enough to remember that show blossom, I water is fall? This is when you were a small child still rotten, Jay. Do you remember that show, blossom only only vaguely, I was more of like a full house guy? Okay. That's fine. We'll, I'm trying to think of the fucking dude's name. His name is Joey whatever the fuck, but the guy who had joined Lawrence had off. He was big time back, then he had awesome hair. And then he shaved it because he knew what the rest of us didn't. Because he's, he's the one getting the close up early on that shit was fleeting and then joy Lawrence went away for a while. He came back, Baldas fuck looking like a Howie Mandel junior. So, yeah. So there you have Joey Lawrence, too, but I don't know that. But, I mean the real the real hair inspiration. Lucas Cielito my God. Yeah, my I didn't tell you something I had, and I don't even know if I'm allowed to disclose it, but it's what where's this going to go, right? Between me and the ground screw. Anyway, it's like everyone's going to know but I, I had the distinct honor and privilege of being able to vote for the American League players of the month pitchers of the month rookies of the month vote for that ABSA fucking what's absolute. That is breaking news. Absolutely. So with, with that being said being able to dive into the numbers and stuff that they like. I'm gonna go ahead and say your, I'm gonna go ahead and say it between between me having we'll sit down with G elites on the RV. I feel like us talking about, hey, you know what? Maybe this year a starting point would be to not walk the entire fucking world. And he seemed to agree with that he seemed to agree. It didn't seem like an egregious request at the time. And I feel like he's lived up to that he's more than lived up to that time. He's, he's got your hair on point. Is it safe to say this starting nine bunk for g leads might be the realist bump? We've had I mean, I think as we have some White Sox fans in the office. Chuck, Chuck nee. So he runs fifth year. He I think he also does some stuff for the main handle, and he came up to me the other day he said you fixed. Lucas Julia though. And I said, no, no, no. We fix each other. And that's just a fact. That's just a fact. I mean you could see the Minniti the minute, he set foot on the RV you could you could kind of feel the energy in his it was kind of, like we were the son, and he was the lizard, looking for that rock Tabasco on, you know. And we just penetrated those scales with our glowing fucking energy. And now look what you have. Ragging. You got them, right. Jared. On the league dropouts just blow fucking, he dropped all over these pitches. Are you kidding me? This is listless cut, who is this? A t-shirt coming is gonna just be a giant, t the word elite in the word. Oh, gee, elite. Oh, folks, it's fucking gulp doubt, us, I knock. Who's there? Put out a t shirt, a Julius face on drag now. Yes, drug fucking blowing cheese as last eight starts a one four zero ERA opponents hitting one sixty five slugging to twenty two sixty strikeouts in fifty one in third innings on. Dress me. Yeah. In the White Sox are seven and one in those eight starts. What was the loss? I bet you the one game that they lost it was. The one that he lost was got it wasn't even he pitched to into thirds didn't give up a run, and then came out in the third inning. I'm assuming I don't know what that was all about LA will blister precaution or something. Maybe, yes, over his last seven starts one four eight the White Sox, seven ino- in those seven starts. So if you take the actual real starts. But yeah, these are I'd bump is real starting nine bump, Israel, especially when you bump in the bump back. It's more real last night. I. Couldn't sleep Dallas last night. I was I was kind of up. It was like one one thirty in the morning. Those like you know what am I gonna do to entertain myself? Now that them up late. Not tired have anything to do right now. So I. Hold up the old YouTube page side scrolling down. I was like we're gonna watch right now. That would push smile on my face made me make me laugh a little bit. You know what I put on Dallas? No, I don't tell me immediately. The showdown that we had. With Alex bregman of the Houston Astros. I watched that in full, and I remember when that video the data that video I came out. I remember Dave Portnoy said too long. Get to the point just show the homerun postively or the homerun. Like, all right. Like, maybe we can posted separately. But that video as is its tells a story it's it tells the story of. Of young rocket versus young Astro with with mentor slash. I don't know what you do. I mean as I watched that fucking video back. It didn't register in my head when they show the clip of me throwing the fastball, and I blow it by Alex bregman, Dallas. Brayden is in the background said, I'd say kit like he's trying to hype up. Alex bregman who is the number three offense player in major league baseball against his thirty year old washed up blogger co host, like bregman of pep talk. I, I wanna take this time to I. Swings missing. Like what's sometimes you just fall back into old habits. Jared. Despite, you know, you, you see big leaguer. You're like I. This is this, the team, I'm supposed to be on. This is what I'm supposed to be. Cheerful. I got sidetracked sidetracked. I have all out of all the ridiculous thing that happened in that video subtly. That is the most ridiculous thing. I think after rewatching it out to go. I mean I what preposterous stance to take. Got him if I remember correctly, you know, not that you needed to pep talk. But before we walked out, I'm like you. You fucking. Are you kidding me? Got this this, this is no sweat off your nuts right now. You are about to dice up a fucking big leaguer. You got. I feel like I was having that kind that same kind of talk with you right before he showed up. The problem is he showed up. And like I said, just kind of fall back into oh, I guess I'm rooting for bregman the the ball where am I right? What's going on? I kind of blocked out for a little bit. And then came to right. At the point of contact that fateful swing. And. It's one of those things where I know you're not a wrestling fan, but one of the promo packages that they did for undertaker versus Shawn Michaels to or no. Yeah, either undertake. I think it was triple, h undertaker versus triple, h the second one, the undertaker the year before he beat Shawn Michaels, triple h. But he couldn't walk out of the ring that had to like wheel is asked up the ramp on a gurney. Right. Yes. And then they the next year he challenged triple h to a rematch because he's like I didn't beat you good enough. So he just sees watching the replays. He's watching the replays, and he starts cutting his hair off with the straight razor all this. And that's kind of what I did last night watching that video, I was just watching the I had my mic cursor on the point of contact in Iowa. Just click it bang. Click Bank click at Bank. And I watched I watched breath. Gmund hit that ball, a good one hundred fifty times, so there is going to be a rematch someday. And when there is I guarantee you he does not make contact. I guarantee you that of a is this remeasure down in a phone booth because I feel like. I feel like that might be the only place. I would imagine that this rematch could take place in Cleveland on. He'll be there. I got I got no doubt. He'll be there. So, so their civil j j either fuck you better be there better. Be there J. Are you going to be? Yeah. You don't that nipple come hang out with the boys. I would love to it would be also a great opportunity. Maybe do like a starting nine grandma and pops double dip. Video content. So it occurred to me, is, is watching this replay over and over and over and over again, we never ran, the Alex bregman interview that we conducted that day the interview that took place before the match up before the massacre. The interview that are the interview that basically was a precursor to the matchup talked about it in the interview what? Where do the Astros have trained wasn't even that town? But godforsaken eighty one of those godforsaken towns and Florida. I forget. Efforting isn't it Fort Myers, is it? That's the twins. We've got to come up ground. Screw that. Let's, let's get let's get back to the ground. Screw you know how they had the. They had the Thrilla in Manila. We've got the shot heard round the world off the bat of body Thompson. The giants the giants palm, it's Palm Beach Palm Beach my Ben Palm Beach, the plundering poem beats. We've got to come up with a name for that matchup between between the rocket and bregman so do your get to work grounds crew. That's my vote early. The pummeling had Palm Beach. I mean, that's that makes sense. The day bregman made corrobos his Palm Beach. Oh, she. So that's that's where we're at Alex bregman that interview that we conducted that day you got that on episode one hundred of starting nine we also hit a hundred thousand followers on Twitter insane weeks, or shouts of the grounds crew for showing up in droves on Twitter dot com or the show snake arm. Thank you to the grounds crew for sticking with there's a lot of people that would be like, yeah. Dude, I've been listening since episode one, a lot of people have been hanging there since one. So thank you to everyone. That's been listening since day one, and all the people that we picked up along the way. I think it's really cool anytime that we go or barstool travel stirred different city in you. You know, you meet fans from like any type of fan base, and they're gonna be like, love starring what's Dallas, like in real life. Is he a psycho in real life? Yeah. Okay. That's really cool. Pre sheet that love Jay can't wait for some more tasty nuggets. All right. Nice to meet you, too, and that set that's, that's, that's it has been. It has been a great reception. And you make a great point about your interactions with Yogi fans how the majority of them are outstanding great. I can say the same thing, which, you know, whatever I had, you know, one little interaction with the guy who played for the eighties for awhile and fans seem to remember that Alana Yankee fans seem to remember that seemed to be appreciative of that. So I hear shit like that. But just really I love to hear the fact that passionate baseball fans because I've got a lot of respect for passionate baseball fans. I love me some lunatics soft spot in my heart for the Bleacher. Features. These are fans that love the game on the same level that I think we do. So I appreciate that passion. And I appreciate anybody who will take anywhere from what has been an hour to four hours at times. Hang out with us. So that's a that's a big. Thank you from me to you for spending some time with us and hanging out and talking baseball that is crazy. We we've, definitely we've put out some media podcasts over the years. Real would make James Cameron blush. Shout out to the grounds crew for, for tuning it. We really really appreciate it in. This is only the beginning. I mean think about it. It's June so February March ever met. Yeah. It's only, we're like three months removed from the spikes up tour, which was easily are most successful venture that we've ever done as a brand as a show is a podcast, and I feel like that's only the beginning I feel like we're going to we're going to build on that. We're going to be doing more stuff at the all star game in the off season. We're going to be more active definitely doing another spring training trip. But that's the thing is you get in bed with some of these guys now in word travels fast, you know, like these are the guys that when you when you sit down with them, you can you can be loose. You can open up. You can have a good time. They're not gonna pepper you with questions. That make you uncomfortable. Or they're not trying to try answers out of you to make headlines. They're actually doing the opposite. Trying to protect you from making bad. And you know what? I'll even say this because I have heard from some players that we've talked to and grounds crew, you're responsible for this in some weird way, it's happened. You guys have been able to get to some of the players, whether it's through social media or you actually have a personal relationship somehow because we've talked to relatives of players who you know, whether it's through marriage or whatever they have a connection, so you guys having reached out to players at certain times, and your correspondence with them kind of letting them know we've heard that from the players. Yeah. No, the fans were telling us like, you know, it would be a good time lovable and, and you do five minutes into kicking it. They're like, yo. This is fucking legit. This is cool, like I don't have to. I thought this was going to be different. And I like hearing that because I know what they're expecting Jared. You do too is a member of the media. You know what gets thrown at these guys a lot. I know what's been thrown at them a lot and for them to come on, and not have to deal with, really any of that shit is. For me. That's a feather in our cap that I don't think a lot of people can stick in their hat, and walk around town with that's right. Do you have any words for the grounds crew? I feel like you have a cult hero. Die. Fucking nerd nuggets. I wanna shirt the just as Jay's face on it. That would be a fucking off with. Yes. With Java scrip- nuggets on it. I want I wanted to I wanna t-shirt of like J. Hey, wearing an apron with chefs hat on just pulling nugget out of the oven? That's the shirt that I know I mean obviously I think you guys touched on a lot of the key points. I would like to say that I'm always legitimately honored that anybody wants to, or as entertain by, you know, the stuff that I like to share the stats the nuggets the insight and it has been a lot of fun doing this with you guys. And I like now that it's a part of two days of our week at the very least, we're doubling up now. Which is great. And now man, it's, it's really cool, the interactions that I get on Twitter. With the grounds crew. Are they're the most appealing part of social media for me or the interactions, you get on social media. So I appreciate those and to, to the few who constantly reply with. You know the nugget dipping. Or the pulling out of the oven. I appreciate that, and I see. So thank you for the support. Oh boy. Now get into some baseball news here, the Mariners sent Jay Bruce, the Phillies, the fighting fills pickup Jay Bruce. Who obviously hit never was big batting average guy. But to twelve eight eight sixteen Opie s in forty seven games. This. But, you know, if you need top left lefty, pop they need lefty palm or then left lefty pop because if you needed pop, and you are calling up the Mariners to get it. Edwin Encarnacion guy. Masked it for you. But if you need it from the left side, Jay, Bruce, a proven lefty bat, that's gonna hit, you some homers he's gonna hit some gaps for you. The inner mccutchen news that I don't know if if you know 'cause I saw his tweet, you know, he's asking for prayers and shed its sprain knee. Do we know that for sure? It's just a spray knee right now. I think like it was reported that that's what it was. I mean it could be worse because they're sending in for another MRI. Right. And it looked like he grabbed the outside of his knee, which is probably like this either meniscus. Yeah. PCL or impost, terrier, collateral, ligament, NCO, the medial, collateral, ligament. Yeah, yeah, I just did not look because because the he put his foot down, and it was that left leg planting, as you starting to peer wet and go into that turn. And you can tell if you were to do that, like that pressure on the outside of the, it just sucks. Dude, because you could see the anguish in his face you tell how painful it was, and you saw him just kinda shake his head immediately, and that is an athlete knowing exactly what just happened, right? It's almost like you feel that pop and before the pain even starts to flow. You have reconciled. What your future what your -pedia future looks like that's a tough? That's a tough mental space to live in. And that's very real because the thing about about just walking down the street, you know, stubbing your toe and not being able to walk for the next six weeks or whatever you're like fuck did that really just happen right now? Maybe you don't really think about it until the next day because you're having a tough time walking, or maybe not until later that evening, but he heard a pop he hit the ground thousands of people screaming in the background, and he's essentially weighing the future of his major league career or. Yeah you mentioned the the head shake. That's when I was like he felt the POC like if you're, there's a difference between feeling like a poll or some sort of sharp shooting pain, where it's like this might wear off in an hour. Who knows? I could go get some treatment be fine. And by by the time this ballpark clears out, you start shaking your head when you feel. A pop will end. And the fact that look and this is. We're mid right? We're men revoking fuck away from Louisville. Fuck out walk off my fuck it. So he allowed the trainer whoever was I can't remember to help him off the field. You know, arm around him hobbling off, and it's out of necessity. That's out of necessity. I'm not saying cut guy who's telling people to fuck off, you know, being this Harto can walk off the field own of need Neil. But typically, you know, you're, you're trying to do everything or anything, you can't alight yourself and tell you this is fine. Nothing to see here. I'm going to be great that wasn't even the case. And what's, what's the worst forts injury? You seen live the worst sports injury. I have seen lot. We'll say this at the professional level. It was probably the Napoleon Kaufman and you don't remember him but he was a he was a running back for the Oakland Raiders. The pulling Kaufman had his right knee essentially blasted through the back of his uniform, like you could see his fucking bone come through, and like almost poke through his pant leg in the NFL as a young as a as a player and this is playing football. Again, I. I was like, in the middle of a gang tackle, and this kid falls down and icy. His wrist hit the ground. And another kid comes in from behind him and hits like right at his elbow, kinda and the two bones in your forearm, or in his forearm came poke in through right through his, and like unlike on the ground kind of like my helmet is just there. You know, I'm on, I got seven people on top of me and I'm just like inches away from this dudes wrist popping out of his fucking skin. I'm sitting there seven inches away from it felt like it is easily the most disgusting thing I've ever seen like live, right? There is really gross. God. Well. Bruce. So Jay Bruce is actually hitting lefties better than sitting writes this year. Jay Bruce does is pretty big gap like nine twenty nine oh, PS against lefties seventy five against righties. The lefty pop but not him, specifically, like moving away from what he is going to do or what he represents in the lefty. Pop off the bench. Cesar Hernandez aside from Bryce Harper Cesar Hernandez is he's a switch hitter. But he's the only other option, really to, to, to mix that lineup to create any sort of separation in a late inning attack window for an opposing manager. So now you add another lefty into this lineup with the switch hitter. And you can kind of break up a manager's ability to attack. You know, a couple righties in a row couple lefties, you're not gonna stack them together. So you could put you know, Hernandez, then a righty, and then Bruce in a righty that gives you a little break up at the bottom of the lineup as opposed to be in three or four. Right. Handers in a row where late inning matchups can just basically pants you undress you. J Jerry thoughts on Jay Bruce going to the Phillies Phillies tenth in the NL in home runs by their outfielders. And this was, obviously done prior to the mccutchen trade, but their depth in the outfield was depleted pretty quickly over the last week, or so, obviously doable, Harare's for an entirely different issue that we're not, I'm not acquainting Andrew mccutchen or anything else. But he wasn't outfielder. They were supposed to be getting production from. And they're probably not going to get anything from him moving forward. And he was not performing while he was on the field. So I'm with you. I think it's like I don't think he's a grand solution to anything. But I do think given that park and the way he hits and the power he's capable of. It's a nice piece to have. I got a question for you. Worthwhile. I guess the Phillies have now lost five straight before the. Started. I was a big proponent of the take that the analysis was supposed to be or was going to be the best division in baseball. Do you think that this is looking at the standings looking at how these teams have performed in the analyst? Do you think that across the board? These teams have underwhelmed in this isn't as as of division, as you thought that it would be. Or do you think that these teams have beat up on each other so much that it kinda has brought everyone to, like this, this middle ground? I feel like the Atlanta Braves have underperformed. I feel like the Washington nationals have been abysmal in regard to their bullpen inability to secure some games that they may have been able to win and the Philadelphia Phillies as a staff as a pitching staff have, underwhelmed, I feel like they haven't performed up to their ability, what aside from ethylene. I think. Everybody else is kind of. You know, not. Terrible, but it's not dominant. Like, I think I like I thought we were going to see I really expected the Philadelphia Phillies to just start punching people in the mouth, and Ed really happened. Yeah, I guess I mean, I'll clarify for myself I didn't so much. See the NFL east as the best division in baseball as the most potentially the most competitive filled with four good teams. Like I still think I and I think you did to Jared. I think we entered the season thinking teams like the Astros and the Red Sox Yankees raised like, I think that the absolute top of those divisions were definitely going to be better than the NFL east, or they had four potentially eighty five to ninety five win teams. Right. To me, like, I don't think the Phillies have underachieved really there on an eighty nine wind pace even after this losing streak. I think I think the general expectation at least on my end was in the ninety two ninety two win range. I think the underachieving and the Braves are not far off that Mark either to me, the underachieving is all about the nationals in the Mets, and primarily, the nationals, like I thought that the nationals were going to be, if not the best team in the division than absolutely competing for the top of the division their chances to win the division down to twenty percent by fan graphs at this point like that. That bullpen is you guys alluded to is just been really kind of ridiculously bad, and I don't know man. Like I not so confident on the, the Mets turning it around, because I it's were quickly understanding their off-season moves are question have been questionable best. Yeah. I still think I think the Phillies even I mean what three of those losses came to the dodgers who I think are kind of the unquestioned best team in the NFL. Yep. So I don't know. I think the Braves and Phillies right on track for the most part. And I think that the swing team is the NATs firming. Ooh. It's thrown out there at the end. I think they're still in this over. It's over. You still think the nets are in this. Yeah, I do. And I also I think they're much more of a threat to get back in the mix and the division. And the Mets are. Interesting. Yeah. If that's a hot take then put me down for the nets or not done yet. I mean, here's the thing. I if you're if you're stances the nets are still in it than the Mets are still in it. I feel like those two teams are very much on even playing field. I don't believe in either one of them to be in it when it's all said done. But I think that if we were to pick one or the other. I don't think there's slam dunk case over that you can't make a convincing case for one over the other between the Mets and the nationals, right? Right now today would stay Tuesday. Yeah. I mean if the if the method I think the NATs have better players that would be my argument. Yeah. What if the Mets pitching staff? What does the Mets pitching staff got off to the start? They got off to last year. What are they got off to that start this year? I feel like you could pick either a lackluster performance from the starting staff and, or the performance from the bullpen of the nets is kind of what I mean. Which one do you wanna pick that has landed them in this position? You know what I'm saying is, I mean, the Mets rotation is certainly more likely to turn around at this point, then, the then the nationals bullpen assistance, but that's why I would. And that's why I'm just I'm just kind of poking and prodding here. But that's why I think to Jerry point I would agree with the Mets being as much a part of this ability to get back in this thing as the nets because the nets had the rotation. They've got those guys that can that can get that job done there. The bullpen is what has been suspect and for the Mets, it's a boy. I don't. Yeah, but I think that's ignoring the idea, and we don't need to spend time but yeah, you gotta school runs. And also, like it's it's not like the Mets bullpen has been some lockdown unit like Aries. Aries nothing close to advertise. Or familiar is going to catch a DFA real soon. But edwin. Didn't he just signed him for thirty million dollars? I mean he's been making that a rumor toll brutal like he's the type of guy that you pay the thirty million dollars to stay away from the team because that that's going to help us, there's no way van wagon and is doing that because that would be an immediate indictment on his own season. And never he'll stick around is the GM yet I had earned his pen, stripes. Act like you've been here before. Joey Gallo is added to the injured list. I was I was going to be mean I'm not going to be mean as gonna save. Let's play a game called try and find a reason to watch the Texas Rangers now. What is that reason? Oh pants their pants right now because they're all. Say what yours? A little taste out of one hundred pinches recipe book. I like this instead of instead of speculating about what this might do or whatever. Because we all know he's their best player. I like this idea. I've got a note for you. Oh, give it to me a reason to watch the Rangers. This is probably not going to be compelling. But Shinsu clay that. Here's enough that I, I really honestly couldn't believe. Wait, hold on. Is this is this like the how many consecutive years he's posted like a forty on base percentage? Forty yeah, yeah, he's posted at least an on base percentage of three forty in every season since two thousand eight the only other player in baseball who has done it every single season since then two hundred plate appearances is Joey Votto. Let's go. Let's go Shinsu chew man. Like I feel like his entire career. He's since nine with the Rangers. He's been considered of massive overpay and like maybe he's been slightly overpaid. But he still kind of like, really like pretty much every year it might miss games. But joy him enjoy him while he's there, Rangers fans, thank you mister dole it. Opus joy, galloping doesn't linger, focus hope. It doesn't linger. I had a front row seat to watching. Chris davis. Try to swing and struggle his way through a side injury wasn't bleep specifically. But nonetheless, you think about the torque created as it said, in the article, we all read, I'm sure, but that was something I had talked about a couple of weeks ago. This dude is not only Swain for average these days with the ball, he's playing defense played a decent defense. So for them to lose Joey Gallo right now, they are the Rangers as we sit today in second place in the AL west only a slim eight games out. And Joe yellow is a massive part of that. And I don't know. I don't know that the Rangers are able to. I mean I'm not saying that they're in a position to make a push. I can't really say much about my green and gold right now because the Rangers are in a hell of a lot better spot. The Oakland A's I don't know that they're able to survive this, Joey Gallo is out four to six weeks, talking ten fourteen days, I don't know if that's the case on also like for me. It's even less about. I'm not a Rangers fan. So ultimately, I don't really care what happens that team. But like to me it's more about, like I wanted to see what an uninterrupted a week aloe season could low like this year. Because of the as we touched on petrello article like. In some ways, it was sort of unprecedented, what he was able to do it his size with his power it playing center field. So I guess we'll hope for speedy recovery. I know you guys don't like to talk negatively about people that have come on the starting nine podcast, all handle this next one to start. And then you guys can maybe react or not react as you see fit before we move onto the next topic agree or disagree. The Rangers to this point have been the most pleasant surprise in baseball who agree. I mean, I yes. Yes and no. I think the other candidate would be why. I was gonna say, I know people expect a lot of people expected them to be good and competitive nobody expected the twins. We've touched on. Of course how good they have predicts six fifty winning percentage. Fucking jackass. Pirates rotation. Motherfucker. In kind of quiet on that front lately, haven't we? Kyle Freeland demoted to AAA injuries. Yeah, I did a little research on this one. There have not there have been forty six eight win seasons by pitchers since nineteen sixty nine sorry since nineteen eighty nine. Okay, so thirty seasons. Forty six eight win seasons by pitchers across all of major league not make sure you're clarifying that for folks, this is a forty six forty six eight went war seasons. Not eight win. Win loss records. Correct. Correct. Eight war seasons. Forty six of those okay. Over the last thirty years, the, the least successful follow up to an eight win season over that entire sample is ROY halladay going from eight point eight to zero point eight from twenty eleven to twenty twelve that's base. That's the year. Remember, if you recall where he went from being like the most dominant pitcher in baseball to posting like a four and a half ERA in like a hundred and forty one hundred and fifty innings. And then he was done. Basically the next season Kyle Freeland was at eight point four last season Cy Young contender. He was at negative zero point seven at the time of his demotion. I mean, this is almost unprecedented in terms of here, two year change, even considering the difficulty of pitching course field. What they say. That was interesting. And this is the second time I and I've heard about this before this happens guys do this all the time. But you don't really see it impact guy. I think maybe the way it has here in the way it did in the preview previous example, that I'm going to give you now Barry Zito berries ITO signs for one hundred twenty five million dollars. Spinning the magic he had spun ever so eloquently in Oakland gets breaded up takes it to the bay, any unpacked, s- a brand new set of pitching mechanics. You just paid this man, one hundred twenty five million dollars, and he shows up and his featuring a completely, and totally different approach. So the game in which you just watched him dominate and compensated him a hundred plus billion dollars for, and he left, those mechanics. Home and is like, hey look what I can do now. So the adjustments didn't quite pan out for berries, ITO, there is a moment where he was searching and trying to figure out how to get back to that dominant form don't know that we ever sought there were flashes of production, but he just wasn't the same dude. Kyle Freeland a little bit of the same thing. They they'd spent some time talking about an adjustment with his hands a mechanical adjustment just ever so slightly hand positioning, little things like that, that you're trying to find tune that you're really trying to. Finesse, all say to, to get you to that next level. Sometimes the focus can be taken away from what you were doing really well subconsciously in an effort to try to get better sometimes. And this is athletes getting in their own way. Sometimes what you're doing is good enough. And you just gotta trust it. You just gotta believe it. But I don't think that Kyle Freeland is toast. I don't think that Kyle Freeland is never going to figure it out again. And we're just never going to hear from cloud-free and again, that's not the case. The success he had at Coors field for me is an indicator of somebody starting to figure out how to pitch at this place sorting to figure out who they are. And I think that the mechanical adjustments ever so slightly as they may be can play a big role in a mental approach, because if you're trying to make those. Judgements and they're just not. You're just not executing. You're just not nailed him. Now you can kind of find yourself in that like mechanical purgatory. Well, not completely alive, and executing the way I was, but I'm not completely dead. And just lost out here. I've got an idea, but fuck the results aren't looking great right now either. What do I do? Well, obviously people have taken notice he's going to go to AAA, try to iron, shutout down there, which is where that has to happen. You know, very few are afforded the opportunity to learn at the big league level, and for Kyle Freeland Colorado Rockies. That's just not now not for him. Not after what we've seen so they need him to go down. Spent some time to really figure out as he said, who he is what he is get back up here fucking dominate because the left he's got it in the tape is no doubt seventeen home runs allowed in two hundred two and a third innings last year. Sixteen home runs in fifty nine and a third this year s the fucking ball. Hey the ball is fucking probably not helping. Christ. I mean it's definitely not is definitely not a good thing. But I mean, we use the Verlinde example for the juicy Garrett Cole gear, cool, leads the puck and universe strikeouts. All right. He's got he's given up thirteen Jackson. I think thirteen or fourteen Jack's gear. Yeah. Come on book and baseball. Gotta just go. Look at the three a run numbers and miss me with that shit. Yeah. I think before the season's start I think I ended up picking Walker. Bueller also hasn't been much of a Cy Young candidate but conference was certainly in the conversation for preseason Cy Young pick this year juicy Buehler's outing last night. I did not fucking deal. Fist eighty eight innings like one run. I think eleven punches. So that's what he did. Because I know he was like on the fringe of talking four year. I bet you that got him under four about you up for now. I forget, I forget, who he told the Peralta go fuck take a seat. See all of that. I mean, that was one of the things that, you know, we talked about in that interview with Walker bueller and max Muncie. When we specifically were talking, you're just, you know, you're young guy in this game, and sort of, you know, how do you how do you be you? When you're also trying to respect the guys that have been here before you. And you know he had a good answer for a lot of that stuff. If you haven't listened to that of this if for some reason, episode one hundred is your first time checking out starring nine go back and listen to the Walker bueller max Muncie.

The hopes and dreams of these, these young men, they start today. I was actually going to ask you Dallas because I don't know if we got the full story, the experience of draft day for you. I mean obviously, you are in first round second round third round fourth round six out, pick, what just, you know, just I want your experience of where you were how you were contacted who you are contacted by was at your age. It was if the team directly how long were you sort of waiting for a phone call after you're drafted, what's the process like to, to negotiate a 'cause they didn't have? They didn't have recommended slot back then while while Westman free for. I have the distinction not distinction. I have the because a lot of people have is I was drafted at a high school as well. They had a phase during that draft back in two thousand one called the D F phase or the draft in follow phase. And that typically kicked off right around the twenty fifth round twenty sixth round. I believe if my memory serves me correctly and just a little breakdown down that a rough outline if I draft Jared in the twenty sixth round as a draft and follow, what that allows me to do is retain his rights. So I know control Jared, but I don't want him to sign with me and play professional baseball. I want Jared to go back to school and play, one more year, I want him to get a little bigger little stronger little faster and then before the next year's draft, I have the ability within a small window of time to negotiate with Jared, and. Potentially workout a pre draft deal that would sign him for any amount of money, I choose, and he would income and play baseball with me. And if Jared didn't want to do that, he could decline that reenter the draft and potentially go through that all over again. Maybe draft at higher and not have to deal with that blah, blah, blah, blah. So I'll take you to Puerto Vallarta Mexico on my senior trip. And, you know, we had no fucking internet out there fund Mexico. Got nothing going on. We actually get to the airport with the rest of our class and we're supposed to be going home. Well, they get on the loudspeaker we're looking for two candidates, we will spend two hundred fifty US. That's all we needed to hear. Boom, right to the front of the line me, and my boy, we're like yo what's up? We heard all inclusive three extra days in Mexico. That's us. So my buddy, just said, fuck you to the rest of our class to our. School to everybody, and just ran off in state in Mexico for like three more days. So when we finally land like without any of our school, any, but anything my grandmother, is there because my mom had just passed away, like a month ago couple months ago. Couple months before this. My best friend is with me as well. He got drafted the day before and we found out about it all should fucking drug thirty second round at high school. It embrace kitty lives. You're about to do fucking work. Like we were losing our shit. Right. It's just fucked greatest time your life. I didn't get drafted Kimmy. I was throwing fucking eighty. I got drafted the next day, though, in the forty seventh rally, I said somebody fucked up and said my name. Take me, but. My grandmother and my best friend's mom show up at the airport wearing Atlanta Braves, t shirts and we're losing it. Because my buddy was drafted by the Braves. Right. Really kids looking great, and grandma was like you to write. I like into on what, what? She's like, yeah. That's why I wear the shirt, I was like what do you mean? Why you're wearing the shirt she's like you've got drafted? And I was like for what like I. I couldn't I wasn't it wasn't computing like you antennae. Both Dallas were just drafted out of high school by the same fucking major league baseball team. But that was nuts, too. That was insane because again, coming from Stockton coming from where we've come from, you know, like that kinda shit just doesn't happen. And now we've got two kids from the same high school team being drafted by the Atlanta Braves in the same draft. That was fucking loser. And that was my best friend like we're inseparable inseparable we actually went on play D one baseball in the big twelve against each other. So that was that was kind of the journey for us. But then I get to Texas Tech whatever I'm going to be drafted. I wake up in the scout who calls me. His name is Blake Davis. He calls me and, you know, I, I am one thousand percent going who the fuck is this. And I just I hang the phone up. Hey, dallas. It was like eight in the morning and hung up. Legit on the phone like what is going on? Who is? I don't even know this number calls me back again. Hey, this Dallas, I got the right number. This is Blake Davis. Blah, blah, blah, blah. And he's giving me this spiel, and if I'm being honest, I'm all over and I'm not listening. I hung the phone up again. So when he calls back the third time he's like being adamant, because it's right around the twelfth round and he's like, hey, listen. I'm with the Oakland A's we've got the majorly draft going on right now. And I'm like, oh, hey, what's going on now? He's, he's like who've you been talking to what have you been. I'm like, what would I have no fucking idea again? I'm a fucking kid from the ghetto in northern California. I'm now in west Texas. I've talked to like three. Three scouts all year long. No idea what's going on. No idea that you would get an agent or representation or so goes through that. Hey, we're thinking about taking the twelve outstanding call me back if that ever fucking happens. I guess is that how this works? Call me back. Oh beer. So twelve round goes by don't get picked sixteenth round goes by the phone call same shit. I'm getting calls from the Blue Jays and blah. Hey, who what are you hearing? What are you hear? So Finally, I get a call. It's like the twenty third round. And Blake Davis says to me, hey, when are you thinking about going back to school, you know, like wins wins the cutoff for you? And again, I have no agent. I have no anything that is it extremely valuable piece of information, folks, and I was like twenty four th round. I think like twenty four hour probably go back to school. I got a pretty pretty, you know, pretty cushy scali here at tech. They're paying me pretty well. I'm getting let's just say I'm eating well too. Yeah. Twenty four th round like fucking ten minutes later. Corrobos dow's. Blake Davis, Oakland as twenty fourth round, we're going to take you. What he puts outstanding great. What do we do now? He's like you ready? Signed you ready to go and I'm like. Yeah. I guess I do actually hold on. I've actually been talking to this adviser. So let me actually call him and see what's go. He was like oh, you got an agent now. Like in a matter of minutes. I know agent. So I called this adviser, and I'm like you got drafted like can you talk these guys, I guess this is how this works. Now you're the one who's going to handle this. He's like, yeah. So they offered me. They offered me twenty thousand dollars out of the gate, apparently and my agent, just, you know, doing his level best they like twenty five might be twenty five is in the range. Eric kubota. The Oakland A's scouting director, call him and says. It's not going to be twenty five. The offers twenty and if we get another phone call back it's going to be fifteen and so. Oh, wow. Get the fuck abo- call age is like no, there's no chance. Like I feel like there's wiggle room here. We're gonna you'll, you'll be and I'm telling my agent, look, I just wanna get the fuck out of a place. That's like giving me a report card. I don't need to be doing report cards anymore in my life. Get me the fuck out of here. I'm way beyond a diorama. I'm way beyond underwater basket weaving. I can't handle it. So I signed for fifteen thousand dollars. Process. Didn't quite go away. I would've liked to do, so my, my Asian actually, effectively negoti negotiated me out of an additional five thousand dollars. That's where the story gets really good. Because at that point, my scout is like, all right. Well, look, we're trying to get you on this airplane and get you the fuck out of here ace app. Right. You gotta go to Canada, because we're not going to send you to rookie ball. We're gonna send you the short season, you'll start there and I'm like great. What do you need is like, well, you know, you need a driver's license? You need a and I'm like, why I don't have any of that. He's like, you don't have a driver's license. And I'm like, no. Driver's license. We'll get into that later. He's like why? He's like. All right. Well what about like Jerry, I didn't have an ATM card. I didn't have a driver's license. I didn't have photo. I, I didn't have any of this shit as a junior in in college playing baseball like I didn't have. I had nothing. I know the folks going on in life, I could play baseball through change of cheered. So he had to show up the very next day. And we had to go to the DMV the Dallas or the DOT, excuse me, in Lubbock department of transportation at, like four thirty in the morning. So the as had to call the department of transportation so they could print me of valid form of identification, so that I could get on an airplane and go to fucking Vancouver Canada. Ruined. The license? Feel like you're, this is an important detail in the story. Dallas just fly wouldn't. Yeah. Why wouldn't you have a license? You know. My driving record. Didn't get off to a great start as young lad jeered. I, I lived a distance away from school. And again, didn't have didn't have much money. So like bus pass believe it or not bus pass really wasn't in the cards. So we had a beat up truck that I could use to drive to school. So I drove that truck to school may or may not have had a couple of high-speed incidents early on in my youth, may or may not have total vehicle may not have left the scene while totaling vehicle may may not have a few felony. Speeding tickets under the license under the bell may or may not have had all of that happened before the age of sixteen. Jerry. And then there were some moves that I made you know, after becoming an adult that I'm that I'm not necessarily proud of you know, you'll live Euler. Right. So they like to as doing any homework on you. Little to none. Apparently little. It's funny. It's funny you bring that up because I'm on the plane ride heading here, heading home after that series in Oakland and the bigly trainer who is now the bigly trainer in. Oakland was the trainer who saw me the very first day of my professional career walk into the clubhouse in Vancouver Canada. And he just jokingly said to me, well, draft day coming up kind of brings me back to that first day, the two nine walked into my club. Alison canada. Yeah. You think we'd be standing here bugging? Ten twelve fifteen years later down the road. He was like, why new I'd be here. I had no idea you'd be alive, though. That's just that's because he saw. He saw me rip it shit up in, like he, he saw the Dallas show up that had no ATM card, no fucking driver's license. No anything and I was now making money playing baseball and he got to bear witness to what that kid looked like that was a fucking ugly scene like that guy that guy is partying in the hot tub on the fuck and Fowler line at his minor league baseball stadium Rippin shit up before the game. That's that guy the guy you're talking to you right now. No. I mean that's the craziest part as old process is between two phone calls. We'd go from no agent to agent, and then as straight up to saying, if you call again, we're going from twenty to fifteen and Dallas brain ends up, sign of fifteen I had no idea get drafted. So this guy that had. Been working out at the at the college with this name is henna Alvarez. He was a minor league. He was a infielder with the Baltimore Orioles and this was his agent early on. And we had hooked up and talking about I was like I don't need them like, I'm not going to be fucking draft. What is this? I don't know. And then, like, when money talks started flying around. Oh shit. Maybe I should call this guy. What were you, did you get drafted a junior or senior senior excuse me junior junior, junior facet as junior was your journey your best year, why I spent two years at junior college? Yeah. So I was like my freshman year. My freshman year was a freshman all American. And so then you play in a freshman all American game that following fall. It's called the false star classic. So you come back and you're out words there it is. And that's where schools are there. So as a pitcher you pitch you get six outs. If you're a hitter, you get to ABC if you're a pitcher and a hitter. You get to get your innings you get one AB. So I pitched and I threw well, I punched out five dudes that fucking comebacker to me. And then I hit an inside the park Homer, Mike Clete fell off at first base and was just fucking bartered the base, Pat Roberts, and that's where Texas Tech was like, yo what's up you try to pitch on Fridays for us. And I was like, yeah, the only issue is like grandma has to finish up this math class that she's taken for me so that I can be doin' eligible if she nails that I'm your guy, if not, I'm going to Abilene Christian because not kid. Looking do math. So, yeah. Hey. It's your story. God bless that woman. We need to actually, you know what we need to get her on the podcasts. At some point brochure. To get hurt on the podcasts at some point. I'll the next time that I'm out that way, I will be for sure is conducting an interview that you're actually not allowed to participate in luckily, enough, she would bucking crush me. And I would rather that not be thing. I'm sure she has some stories that I mean, you're just you're withholding that from the listeners very unfair. I'll even make you a trade. I'll, I'll let you interview. Ellen if I can interview your grandma. How do you know that? I don't already have an Ellen Ellen interview banked, because I would disown her as a mom, and that's, that's her whole life. She. She could never make that trade. She's she's unwilling to transfer that file to a different dropbox. Into that were there. Any big takeaways from either of you from, from this year's it will be draft. The biggest takeaway is that. And I don't even want to say this right now. But I feel like I have to, because I feel like it's the truth. And that's what we're here to do is deliver the truth. As much as I want the majorly draft to grow up and be sexy as much as I want to major league baseball draft to grow up and be a really cool draft. It's just never gonna just it's just never gonna and that has nothing to do with the effort put in that has nothing to do with the technology or the presentation of the draft that it just has everything to do with the fact that you haven't heard of these guys at all leading up to this day and you won't hear from them again until they not only get to the big leagues, but start producing consistently at the big leagues VIN. You'll be like oh, that's right. This was their first rounder X amount of years ago just getting his shot. Now, it's not the please draft Ezekiel Elliott because you have no running back and he will become the rookie of the year and make your team that much better. Just not that talent. You don't have the high school to the big leagues collegiate directly to the big lead path that the NBA and NFL represent there. That is a super highway from the from the gridiron on Saturday to the gridiron on Sunday there, there is there's no stop in between the guys that just got breaded up yesterday. We could very well never see again. Yeah. Now there I got a few questions because the Red Sox with their first pick took a shortstop from Arizona and some people were like wait. Didn't they just extends Zander, Bogart's? Why would they draft a shortstop house like the NFL draft in the major league baseball draft are not alike in any way, shape, or form, when it's your turn to pick you're gonna take the best available talent because A you're not gonna see him for years? You can switch positions based on your positional needs at the major league roster level, you know, at the minor league level, you can switch physicians with this player and. And if they're just completely blocked at the major league level, they now become a trade ship that you can use to address other positional needs at the major league Belsey always just take the best player at that spot, regardless of what their position is that works, and there's no, there's no like a I'm not using this as an example, to crush the person. But. Give me the Tim Tibo of the NFL, give me the Tim Tibo of the NBA. And what I mean by that is find me a place where somebody like that can exist in the NFL. Find me somebody that can exist in that space in the NBA like the D league or the G league, excuse me. I guess that would be as close to the minor leagues in baseball for the NBA a practice squad guy like those guys are a dime, a dozen. Right. They turn those guys out that the game each those guys up. So I don't feel like baseball offers us the opportunity to fall in love with the draft because we're just not who these guys aren't who we need to be falling in love with right now. They're hey, this is what we potentially have, you know, like the starting pitchers in a rotation are not are not border. When a starting pitcher gets drafted by their team because it's not like a quarterback situation where you've just drafted a quarterback. And now the next year's draft drafting quarterback like right. Because now that conversation is what message are you sending quarterback of the future team? Look like what's that doing chemistry wise? You know you got all those questions. You've got to answer as opposed to just in Burland going. Yeah. I hope this kid turns out to be fucking great 'cause one he's not even on my radar. I'm a hall of Famer he's not gonna be here for at least two years at least minimum. Minimum. It's like I completely agree with you as much as I would love for the major league baseball draft to be a spectacle for baseball fans is just not in. It's never going to be n les in. It's, it's never going to be consistent. There might be a year where it's like holy fuck. You know, like Stephen Strasburg where people were watching his college starts, like highlight videos on YouTube, and they were going viral or obviously, the year that Bryce Harper was taken like those years. The draft was interesting, but fairly the first five minutes of the draft is, and you, you, you knew where he was going to go to they've got to figure this thing out, because marketability, right? Because now you've got these guys that have just been drafted, and you're going to have the super regionals coming on your airwaves. You're then going to have the college World Series coming on airwaves. These guys would have been drafted already. And now you have the opportunity to reintroduce these amateurs. Now as future professionals to the baseball world. Well, if baseball can figure out a way to get ahead of that. And put these guys on a stage or put them on a radar long before, then maybe you start to see an uptick in the attention to the draft. But that is a difficult task because these kids are playing multiple games over the weekend. There's a lot of baseball going on. Not just is on college baseball. It's just tough man. It's tough because they're not instant impact individuals. Yeah. All right. Well, the interview that we promised at the start of the show, episode one hundred we knew that we had to deliver a banger for episode one hundred and. No other banger that we had in the tank with more thump. Than Alex bregman eighty two off the bat of Houston Astros. I'm looking I can see Dallas, Dallas Dallas to be shit stir. Like there's times where I can there's things that Dallas is doing on camera that I can see that you can't like if I'm going on rant he'll be like keep going keep going keep going. You're saying the things that I can't say he killing. They'll never know the direct. She's is basically, he's a traffic cop. And he just did something right there. You know what Dallas? I'm just gonna get to the center view your time out right now without further ado hundred up a soda for the second time. Alex bregman of the Houston Astros. All right. React, Alex bregman. He's, he's back. But the first thing that we had him is like there was no back story. There's though history history. No love is different now. No love loss. It's long is different now for that ask her. Who's? It could go either way. Where I. You always against me, so. Play players site. Yeah, it's fine. Alex bregman, welcome back. I guess we're not Astros camp today and the Houston Astros. One hundred in three games and twenty eighteen and you were big part of that. What twenty seventeen months postseason for bregman. I mean you are very what are you twenty four for twenty four? So I mean, we're, I remember we had you on C C K. You realize we look. Fifteen years. So how do you sort of prepare yourself for fifteen more years of this shit? Well, you gotta take care of your body. Yeah. That's number one. And that's what we're doing right now. We're, we're trying to take care of our body and get ready for the season. And this is the this is the time to get all the kinks out. So I'm looking forward to a man. It's going to be another fun year. I mean, ails loaded again, I didn't ask you this. What was it like? When would Justin Verlander walked back through the thrill. Nobody was surprise this guy. Lender still in our team. Oh my God. Okay. So when we signed him, I thought it was like a one one and done. I thought it was one and done and then, like holy cow. Sticking around two more years. Yeah. And then now who knows we might be able to resign them? That'd be huge pitch. Chili's guy wants to pitch release forty five. Yeah. I mean I doubt them the workers there. You see it behind the scenes. I I've been standing for the dude for, I don't know how fucking long people wanted people wanted to wanted to run their mouth when he was going through those down, because he had the he had the abdomen injury. Let's to get himself back. Right. And he did. And then arguably should've won the Cy Young couple years ago. What is it? What is it? What does it do for you to see that kind of work ethic grind out because, you know, those things that are going on behind the scenes, you're aware of that shit? Nobody's going to blow up the spot in the media because it's fucking just Verlaine. He's gonna figure any has. But for you guys to see him grind that axe behind the scenes. Like what does that do for you in terms of creating a, a character for the club? Yeah. Well, it just makes everybody it makes everybody around him better. It, it makes care better makes it made Dallas better. It's gonna make Miley, betters can make everybody better just being able to just watch him work. He shows in on start day completely different persons like he turns into like is the dick. No is not a dick. He's just not. You just you're so zone. Dan on online. He sows zoned in on the game. You're like afraid to even be like egg elected. You don't even you don't even want to talk to. He's got like three songs on repeat Eminem in his in his headphones, and he just paces back and forth, all day. Like, yeah, yeah. That's a fucking caged animal. But I mean the, the guys that are like that are usually the best in the games greats. Yes. Great. It's just repetitive. Repetitive repetitive repetitive, and it's just over and over and over again. And he keeps doing it and keep doing it and keeps doing it. And just when you thought like, oh, he's gonna get tired. No. He's back locked in right? Yeah, ever. So the narrative is that major league baseball. They they're not really that great at promoting their players you kind of just promote yourself. So damn good, John. Yeah. So, like, what we're like the inspiration, the idea come from to be like, you know what? Like, I'm just gonna start documenting like what I do I'm gonna start even stuff outside of baseball. Because like I know that I bust your balls about, like the five hundred dollar tip thing. Like I still I'm going to do that. I'm going to tip somebody five hundred dollars shut up your ass. But I still think that, that's cool that you're doing stuff even. Saida baseball to be like this is who Alex bregman the person is instead of just the player that's kind of a grabs people like it's not it's cool to hit homers school. The win a World Series title was the person. Like so where was the inspiration to do something like that? Well, growing up. I was I grew up from like an NBA background. My parents onto minor league basketball team. We ended up selling them the Cavaliers when I was probably twelve thirteen years old. And just being around that kind of grow up in the NBA atmosphere, and just made me love the NBA. So now I'm watching all these guys in the NBA do it love 'em as well. Okay. New Mexico is like Jackson's Jackson. John, John Jones from there. Holly home her husband's my high school baseball coach when I was growing up. So just going up in the NBA NF may add Mus fear, it's kinda like all these guys do it, and, like why doesn't baseball do what isn't baseball baseball show their personality? If I was a kid growing up, and, and jeeter era anyone. Showed me what they did everyday like I'd be locked in twenty four seven on what they did. And so kind of that kind of brought the inspiration for that. And now we're just kinda like often running a little bit. We're we, we had the YouTube channel we were, we might we might dabble a new little podcast or something throughout the year just different road cities and stuff like that. But we'll see. I mean the focus for me is strictly on winning baseball games. No matter what that's and the other stuff that outside of that is, like take zero of my energy. Yeah. So Valero, does something I'm going to ask because I think that's what a lot of players at times can get scared off by is because I said this Jared, and we're talking about talking about our boy Bauer as well. Like these to do get it. Ballard gets it. Break gets it. They understand that there are kids that wanna watch you stretch. They wanna watch you feel ground balls. They wanna watch you fucking eat cereal. They wanna do it all, like Alex bregman and you understand that. And you're giving the people that how do you balance? I guess, at times, because let's be real. This is something like what you doing. I couldn't do that. I for one I was nowhere near fucking good enough to do that number two. Like how am I gonna balance? I'm going just try to become a superstar behind the camera. And the next thing, you know, and backing up basis, and w because I'm looking dog shit and worried about my YouTube channel. Well, you do a phenomenal job of balancing all that. How well like that's what I that's the number one thing I was scared of when this whole thing started because for me growing up like it's always been about trying work as hard as you possibly can to invest baseball player. You can possibly be every single day in China win as much as you possibly can. And that's a scared me, and I was like, I'm not doing this because it's gonna take too much of my time and I'm gonna have to be doing all this stuff. Yeah. Don't everywhere doing all this stuff, and they're like, no, the guy who's running my YouTube channel stuff behind the scenes. He's like, no, bro. Like you don't have to do any that you live your life. You do exactly what you do exactly what you normally do you worry about winning baseball games. That is the only thing on your mind. I don't want anything else on your mind. All this other stuff will take zero effort out of you was like, okay, we'll see. So the first two weeks, go by, and I'm like, well, you're right now like no effort out of me and then, like four months later, still, like still just I'm just being myself doing my thing, and they're doing it behind the scenes, and they're basically giving everybody that behind the scenes access to whatever we're doing and it's taking zero. My effort my whole my whole effort all off season is trying to get better as a baseball player hopefully when we'll do net shine through. That's what's awesome about what you're doing. And you've our as well but specifically you because I'm I mean you can't you. Catch a thirty second video, and we've watched you filled Grumball's. We watch you workout we've watched you eat lunch with your boys, taking care of your crew, which I fucking love you. Don't forget, the people who help get you where you're at and. Kids in a matter of thirty seconds have fallen in love with Alex bregman. If they for some weird reason didn't know who the fuck you were before they absolutely do now in a matter of thirty seconds. So you were fucking nailing it, my friend. Yes. Spun to watch. You're welcome for the boost in view saying, appreciate that. Oh Jerry captures the northern northern region. Oh, yeah. You can do that. So I'm curious because it must be two completely different not mindsets. But feelings going into spring training coming off a World Series title versus coming off the way that the two thousand eighteen season ended for you. I didn't say how. Look, I'm just saying I'm just saying. What how is it different for you coming into spring training of a World Series title versus like fuck like our season cut short like a hundred three when team like you should be better than five games in the LCS? You were better than five games. They LCS. So what's the what's the difference, like, where's the hunger meter at coming off a World Series tile versus, like premature exit? Yeah. I, I think we were extremely still hungry last year. Now, we also kinda had like a little bit of. Yeah. We did win the World Series in leg a little bit of that. But the same time we, we still took it one pitch at a time when game at a time bus at our ass every single day. And the pieces didn't really line up like we there's, there's no excuse for losing at all. Boston outplayed us. But the Saint like some guys got hurt. And we realized that, like you have to be you have to be on your Ps and qs layoffs. You can't there's no, there's no like. Tiptoeing your way in hurt. And we got we, we needed to get healthy and, and guys have worked extremely hard to do that. I mean, I, I was honestly I was extremely proud of some of the like to was on the surgery table the day after the series ended, and like Lance was Lance was Lance was getting Tommy John getting Tommy John right after they told him the shutdown. But he said, no, I want to strap it on for the play. There's a lie Correa was hurt with his back all year. Springer's thumb, it never really was healed until now. But we we went out there and we weren't on top of it. And the Red Sox. Capitalized on everything Jaggi Bradley, I think he had three Knox series. Three of the biggest Knox. That's crazy. Along with along with eight plus defense. It was the catcher the year you've made. Unbelievable. I love bendy. Yeah. He's the best. He's the best. What was your reaction to that? Is there? Obviously, you're extremely frustrated. But when you when you watch that catch now, is it like Bach, like almost had it or like typically cap type deal, I think both I think like damn we were so close that unit again. And I'm talking to you specifically on that one play. I was like damn so close to doing it go about your thinking bleeding down off about I said, tiger. Yeah. Way. Go go. I'll I was like borderline ready to like go go nuts tied the game and then borderline. And then also I'm like the hell of a play. Yeah. And that's that's a that's an aggressive play. And it made me think back to like some of the plays in this in the postseason before. Like if you wanna win you can't be playing like not to lose. You gotta be playing aggressive in the playoffs. You the play aggressive. You can't you can't. Like, Ooh, I don't know if I want to die for this ball because if I do and I don't get it, they're gonna win the game though. You have to go also the wall. And that's what he did. And. Boston's got a ring fucking sold out absolute so like the core. The Astros is one of the best. We, we just did a podcast last night, and I said bar, none Astros. Have the best infield in baseball. I debated that he. Well he picked as I mean he's he's biased being unbiased national baseball journalist the Astros. The best infield in baseball. So when it comes down to because we've talked to some guys and I'm like, you know, do you wanna be the guy like does it mean something to you to be the guy? Think are not. It was a guy that we talked to him about that because they got, they got guys on that teacher for you is just like, you know, you got to as in MVP career could be an MVP you very well could be an MVP for you. Is there a desire to be the guy or is it just like we we're all guys, I think the second one though you said, I think we all wanna we all wanna continue the push each other to be better and better and better. And there's always going to be like a little bit of competition, but it's not competition within our team competition. Like to be the best that your position in the league. That's like that's always say, like I think early on. When we first got together, it was more of, like, hey, I want to be the best because in the minor leagues when you're coming up. You want to be the best player in your team survival of the fittest down there. The minor leagues is me me me when the big leagues, it's us. Yeah. It's we and like. Like Carlos BELTRAN told us told all of us that when he came over, he's like, don't try and don't try and be the best player on this team. Try and be the best player your position in the league every time you match up against the, the whoever from whatever team, you try and beat them that day better than that day. And that's the kind of mindset that we started all started taking. And it's, it's, it's, it's, it's, it's a really it's a really good lineup in. We gotta we gotta go out there and do it. How are you guys preparing now differently than and maybe you specifically coming into a season where you do have a little more time, because the, the postseason parades the tours and all that shit that isn't there that's not beckoning and pulling you in fifty different Buchan directions. You can now focus. What did you do immediately after to flush twenty eighteen and put that in the rear view? And then get back to work because you get away from the field, you knock, the dirt off the spikes, and you go. I mean me I'm a fan of umbrella drink spread. I was I was kinda I was kind of pissed after this season. So I got in the weight room. Okay. I got into the shoot around getting angry. Yeah. And then all of a sudden New Year's comes and I'm in Arizona. And watching I was going to go watch LSU in the ball game. And I wake up and my arm is completely locked out and I'm like, what's going on? Like my arm had been my arm had been hurting for the last few years, and I was scared it was something worse than it really was. And I was going to have to miss like time. And thank God it happened when it did because if it would have happened in the season, it'd been DL stint. So I, I find out that I have bone chips in my elbow. And I'm like, well, that's better than I thought originally. But then I'm like do I take them out now? Or do I just play the full season through with them and have the possibility of coming up again? Or do I get surgery and miss like the last four weeks of spring training? And the whole reason that, that I decided to get the surgery was. Because based on the fact that like like you asked I started working out right away when the season ended. So I felt like my body was had a good base and be able to withstand this recovery. Exactly. I was in a position to where I could just work out, my lower body core for the first for those four weeks when I was healing that I could recover. But thank I, thank God that I started working out, then or else, I would have been like behind the pre hab. The pre hab Israel trust me, I had to do it with the shoulder lift shit that you're not gonna be able to lift right after this. So hopefully fucking week. Ask body can figure it out. Yep. Talking to me. I'm talking to me. I know he's bigger. We were talking about Ruffin rowdy. He's, he's bigger in person like not hide wise, like. Along with. True. Let's get brighter. You get redder shoes disaster. He's got bubbles on his forehead. Yeah. Is not an ideal situation. What do you like sixty? No. It says six feet on the thing. But I'm actually about five ten and a quarter kinda like disappointed, this appointed kinda like. Kind of like the kind of like the Cuyler Murray. What's pro day or day five ten and a quarter begins? That. So do you feel now because obviously Mike trout best player in baseball Bryce Harper. He's sort of like the lightning rod of baseball. I still sorta, I guess he's the face of baseball nowadays, the highest pay guy. Do you think that there's been some sort of not like campaign? But do you think that the league has sort of honed in on you to sort of elevate you to that, same level, where it's like this guy could be the face because it seems like it seems like most things that you say, get picked up and we're trying to make this thing. Now do you notice that at all? Yeah. I think some of them get a taken out of context. Yes. I think a lot of things are said differently on video than they are in writing, let's easy to take a co- card this. He might have been laughing at the time, but he said he's got to spy on his face, you'll get around, like he's on a soapbox. He can gospel. It's like gosh patriots and Red Sox. They won. Last year. God, they're, they're just they're always winning up there. Don't you? You wanna there's no city you want to be more Ryan, if you put that in writing. Right. It sounds like no city more you wanna beat. You're throwing darts Giselle. And then you, then you're getting you're getting hate mail from north. I'm the boss, keep your head on the swivel when you get into when you enter Massachusetts. No. That, that's a good thing. Like no one, you don't want people to feel indifferent about you. Like if you're getting booed on the road, you're, you're dude. Like that's like Barry Bonds. They don't nobody's right? Yeah. He was going to fifty thousand people are shown up to boo. Yeah. Yeah. Do you embrace the villain role because it's almost like you're not like. The guy in personally right guy. They even do the thing with with you know what was the kid? The kid tweeted you and you say, oh, good swing. And then you met with it's like assholes aren't doing stuff. Right that put this on a quote card. Alex bregman confirmed. Not an asshole. Right. Kind of guy. Yeah, we'll help your kid with his swing right? Dick heads are just doing wants to promote the game wants to to pro baseball to the youth. Like it's a good thing. We'll put it would just gonna turn them into a villain. But that's the thing is like, you know when you have guys like a rod roll into Boston. They're booing him at the time because he's an asshole, if they boot, you, it's because like this guy can in hurt us, right? We want rattle wanna have. We don't want to have him beating us. Yeah. It's a little bit different noble. I like that kind of stuff too, though. Like I like like I, I watch like I don't want to be known as the villain. No. But at the same time, like I think it's fun. Yeah. Like if you watch like, if you watch the you have C like kinda mcgregor's talking because he knows how to sell fight right? Like when you guys are when you go on barstool when you guys are talking about stuff, you know how to sell stuff. Yeah. Like the NBA they, they make they make rivalries between Westbrook. And K D. And, and they make rivalries between now like kyri and LeBron. And the. Uniting of them, and like all this stuff, but I think that's fun for. I think that's fun for, for baseball and stuff like that, like, do you let me ask you this. Do you think that players have a certain level of responsibility to entertain that if, if they have a personality, that's fit for it because of how we are viewed as unmarketable on personable individuals. Or do you think that it's better left for that stuff to kind of develop organically, I e you end the YouTube channel Bauer and interaction is it better that it just kind of happens that way. Or, or do you think players should start to kinda step up and take some responsibility for that? Well, I think I think a lot of players are scared like we were saying earlier about like the time that it takes and I, I was talking to Jarvis Landry is when my friends from LSU plays football, and he's like, yeah. You guys just don't like I feel like you guys don't have time to do it. We have we have six days off during the during the week or whatever. And we play on Sunday and he's like we got all. The time in the world of market ourselves because I was telling him like how you guys wear mask, and you're more marketable than baseball players. Right. Like people get see people get to see baseball players faces all the time. Right. But they, they have time to get out and do all that stuff. Baseball players do to is just do they wanna make the time to do it, and it doesn't take a lot of effort. And that's like, yes, some stuff takes effort. Like if you wanna do like, if you wanna if you wanna do like if you wanna grab your buddies and go fuck up a little league game. No prior and just just do some shit takes takes that takes some effort. That's that takes a little bit of like, hey, it's Sunday during the off season. You normally be off. It takes two hours to go do that. That's something you wouldn't do during the season. I think it's also part of the circle that you belong to, because you talked about how when you first start doing. I don't have the time to do that. But then you have people around, you know, you do just keep doing what you do will handle the rest network. If you're gonna make it to the big leagues your baseball baseball baseball baseball. And it's like you're not thinking about how do I market myself like you need people that are like, hey, I got this. You do you all handle the Mark. Getting aspect. You have to have a team around you. That's exactly it's crucial. And, and if guys in baseball have a team around them that make it easy for them to do it and market themselves, and they want they want to do it. It's super easy. Is there anything to the old school mentality because you understand it you know how it goes? We've got a fucking unwritten rule book that I still haven't been able to locate, but I sleep next to every night. How important is it for guys to, to start to realize, hey, I can become myself, but dealing with that old school mentality of keep your head your locker as young guy speak when spoken to, you know, ears open mouth shut. No. I love all that stuff. Like I love the unwritten rules of baseball. I love all of it. I love it. I think that you can be yourself and still go about playing the game and working hard and, and playing to win the right way and do it also being yourself but twenty seventeen World Series that World Series. I think set the record for most homers in a single World Series. Tons, also set the record for the most backflips in a single. I feel if you're. I mean, we had a team meeting before that said let the let the backflips go on with like you should especially on that stage like if it's the World Series. And I mean obviously, like Manny bat flipped in Cleveland. When the Red Sox down like seventy two it's like all right. Maybe save it for like the the good moments. But that was such a back and forth World Series to where the moment called for it. But if you're an unwritten rule guy, how can you also baffled guy? I think I think it's just about how you do it. I think it's about doing it in the right situation when the time is right. Like I wasn't mad about about. Tesis backflip, does that when they're up fourteen and nothing in April, it's? But he hit the biggest home run in Blue Jays history. So that was pretty sick. Yeah. Yeah. Everybody to watch baseball Canada. I watch baseball. I promise you'll Carter we love. It's frig. That's okay. Baseball who who was your favorite baseball player growing up. I think it varied a little bit. I had a bunch of different favor baseball players, who were earlier. When I first started out, I was, I loved Mark McGwire, Sammy, Sosa a rod jeeter when I got a little bit older, and I was about boy for the Lobos at belt, thirteen fourteen years old at university of New Mexico and AirAsia mistake came into town, Jason my buddy, who's in here story. I don't know the exact year. I, I wish I did. But this is like the Ethier Petrolia like those guys, so. Yeah, so Graham ball ground balls. Hit by player to shortstop and they're up by. They're up by, like fifteen and throws up the line. First baseman gets off the bag to catch it and tag it. And the guy running bus in his ass on the line dives headfirst. Yeah. They're already up like fifteen to one but he doesn't carries buses as playing the game hard drives in safe at first. And I'm like I wanna play the game like that guy. I absolutely love that guys. What's up? Yeah. Yeah. And then and then then he won the rookie of the year. Yeah. Anyone a few World Series that he just got a couple. He's got three. Now an MVP to get an EMMY now, big deal, doesn't eight and I still am giant fan you ever met him. Yeah. I did Alex, like just a hey, bro. You're bad. Who said that to who could go either to him or you. He's a legend he's a legend and I love patrol after that from then on like I was loved Dustin Pedroia. I wanted to and that was my cop. Everyone was comparing me. I remember really coming up because that's so he's, he's woodland boy, California boy. Yeah. Like a lot of the talk from the scouting servers and shit where like we feel like the back in play. But where's this fucking short? Little chubby gonna play defense where we're gonna find a place for. So they told me to really. It's golden out there. It's where I'm gonna play gold. Yeah. I like pretty good, and Oakland, bro. All right. Done platinum over there. So I gotta hypothetical for you, because you came up as a shortstop, you found a nice home at third base hypothetically, if you know, when if you were to reach free agency and sign anywhere else, and shortstops open is that intriguing to you or would you just like a third baseman now? Honestly, wherever yeah, honestly, I tell that's been the mindset forever was be would be like right now, we have to all stars the middle. So they're like, hey, you wanna play third. I'm like hell. Yeah. I won't play I wanna win. And if that means me playing second in the future means playing short in the future. I think the most the the my best position is probably shortstop. Yeah. Still now but we got a we got a study shortstop here. So I I I'm perfectly fine playing cake. Yeah. I don't I don't know if we got to ask you this the first time but obviously, you're talking about interactions with guys like Petrolia thinking guys like core for, for starting those exchanges and making those introductions what was your big league moment for yourself? When when you realize like yoga, I'm in the fucking show right now, like this is this is show shit. Yeah. I think well the my first game I walked up the tunnel and I looked to my left and I'm like, damn, I watch Brian McCann plays a brave, and I looked to his left and I see a rat taking swings. And I looked to his left, and I'm like that's Carlos BELTRAN, like five seconds later. I feel I feel at the game, it just flew by and like five seconds later. I'm at third base. Two outs in the first inning. And to BELTRAN one hops me with one hundred four mile an hour missile. I catch it and I can't even like it was hit so hard. I caught it and I couldn't even think through it and thank God it hit the first baseman, the chest. 'cause like I envisioned like all the night before that night before when I'm like thinking about the game. I'm not worried about my bats should have been worried about because I started one for thirty two but I was worried about the thrill because like you're so antsy like your first game in the big leagues that I after I caught the ball, I was worried. I was gonna hit the like dude sell popcorn in a stand. So what would be? Block that over on your debut day or like to kicked balls. I would rather to kick balls into Knox. Okay. But we made the plays. And I started one for thirty two. It went from standing ovation. My first ten at bats this fucking kid. Hot red every show. Everyone was Boeing and then like two months later, we were we were good again. So, yeah, it was crazy. It was. But that's how it is. It's like when you come up, you'd better perform. They're gonna send you out. Right. You mentioned a-rod I know Dallas you've had your problems with in the past. I like a-rod now as a media guy. I like him. You, you, you did something with him like recently on Instagram. Right. What type of advice does a guy like a-rod half for you a lot, whether it's off the field going the game or whether it's on the field like I asked a bunch of people when 'cause we got him a canon BELTRAN over from the from the Yankees. Yeah. And they both said like bar non rod knows more about baseball than anybody. He's studies. It he and you can tell with the broadcast like he he does a really good job on their. That's why I flipped on. This guy's like, really fucking good at this. He he knows. He knows the game dick. Ridiculous baseball mind. And that's, that's what I would. That's what I would ask people to try to separate like you can have your feelings about the do. Right. But like if you're if you're trying to appreciate what he can mean to the game. Like you need to step back and realize, like this is this. It's a fucking gold mine, as far as knowledge and as far as experiences concern. That's why I don't have, you know, the beef or whatever. I just like damn dude, I want him to have been able to have that impact on guys like you while while on the field as well, because he's going to be able to do it throughout the rest of his career in median shit, which is awesome because I want guys like you to be able to look at a guy like him and be like fuck. I can be even better that's being selfish because you really good right now. And that's just me getting to watch you grow and excel. So I fully appreciate that about Iran, and I want other people to as well. So I'm not I'm not completely out on the dude as a human being probably not exchanging come into my fucking birthday. Sure your birthday. We, we we every time he's in town. I try and ask him everything giant like, if something's going on that I'm not feeling right at the play, or something's going on defense that I could try and ask him a question. I'm always like your what do you think about this? What did you think about this and see if it like can help because he's super super intelligent about the game. What's the best advice you've ever gotten from anybody teammate coach player in the league hall of Famer anybody best advice? That's, that's tough. There's been a lot of good advice. I don't know. I, I'll tell you, I learned a lot. When I learned a learned a lot from choral about the game baseball in studying the little things about the game as well as BELTRAN, I learned a lot from McCann on how to try and on how to be a leader in the clubhouse, and how to go about your business and stuff like that learned a lot from a lot of law from Burland or about how he just locks it in zones, everything out. And but what type leader are you a u you a vocal leader are you a lead by example guy or a little bit of both? I think I think communicating with everybody is key. I think being able to communicate with your teammates and being able to find out what makes them tick, and what you can say to them to motivate them in order to go out and do it. But it that all that means nothing. If you don't, if you don't if you don't lead by example in the work and and and and prove on the field. Yeah. Yeah. What's, what's AJ Hinch? Like I mean like he's been there for a little bit now is he guy that would take someone like you and you I come up and is he just saying be the guy that got you here in the first place or is he trying to guide you in different ways? What's he like a little bit of both? He wanted he, he wants players to be themselves. And because he, he knows that he knows that everybody's different and everybody has something else that they can bring the table, make them tick. Yeah. All that kind of stuff. But the thing that AJ did that help really helped me a lot was I was struggling like I said at the beginning. My career I was one for thirty two and he's like, hey, I know you're not used to hitting. Seventh in the order, like even hitting second for your whole life. And you just you just came up. And now you're hitting in the third for the first time and you're getting three about the game to off the starter, and then to off Dillon Matanzas Miller. So, so from now he's like from now on, I'm hitting you second, because I believe in you. And then once he once he said that to me, like I kinda started believing myself. Yeah. Started believing that I belonged in the big league to hear that especially coming out of a camp like the Astros, because let's be real. I mean you played some calculators. There's some calculation going on in the Astros camp in the Astros, dugout. There is so for him to be able to say you know what fuck the numbers fuck wit at all says right now you get up to the top of that order and UB. Alex bregman I love I love to hear that is there. He's, he's, he's really good at that. That's one thing. He's that's what I was gonna ask, is there is there, a there's a science to that? And he's got that down. It feels like Yep. AJ. One hundred percent and you, you, you can't be too much analytical. But you also need to use the analytical because it's some of the stuff that they're providing for us is like while that helps a lot. Yeah. If you know what guys sequencing right? If you know like forty two percent of the time he's coming at you. First pitch with a wrinkle and, and you know exactly what that wrinkles gonna look like 'cause they provided that info for you before the game. And if you know exactly where you need to aim on the heater because this guy has a certain amount of run movement and ex movement. If you know that before the game it helps you out and AJ does an unbelievable job of managing, like, hey, this is what the computer says we should do and this is my feel for the game. And you have to have Phil for the game and the minute that the minute that it's just like robots. It's not gonna work, but are you. Are you an unplugged guy where it's like you go to the ballpark early? You do your video shit. You do everything like that your preparation and then you play the game, and then you go home and you just completely unplugging from baseball, or you going home and thinking about like, what can I do to be better tomorrow? I'm what can I do to be better tomorrow? I and thinking about baseball twenty four seven every single day. Everything everything, everything that I think about on a daily, I'll tell you tell you more about this in a second, but like legitimately when I get to the ballpark. I'm watching video on the starting pitcher. And then all of the right handed pitchers out of the bullpen. I go hit, Nikkei's you go watch more video talking in the clubhouse of the game, yet game ends come home, and I'm sitting on my couch with Jason who hit with for the last twenty twelve years. And we talk about the guy pitching tomorrow. What pits we're gonna look for where we wanted to start what we're trying to do with it. What analyze the batsman the night before see if anything was different and then do it again the next day and then again the next day, and then again the next day, and like whenever I'm on social media or whatever. And I'm posting. There's, it's always like geared like if I say something it's geared towards what I'm thinking about baseball. Sure. Yeah. So if I'm posting like pave the paradise and put up a parking lot. It's not just like, hey, I'm singing a song. I think this picture goes with the song, though, it's like. There's, there's more to it or something behind the veil. Twitter something behind the scenes there that, I mean, that's how I feel but from from asking guys that question, haven't you noticed that there's a direct correlation between the guys that say, like I obsess over it, and I never stop and the guys like when I go home. I unplug like the elite players are like I can't fucking stopping about baseball. It's it is. It's an it's an obsession house to be. It's an obsession, I was gonna say this, because you're new may guy, Donna McGregor. Nate d is from Stockton, California from that both of them this off season. Great dudes awesome. Great news. Awesome early on you walk into their house, and you're walking into mats everywhere chain link on the wall. You're fucking house, your home. That'd be like walking into your living room and sitting down right next to the iron Mike, right on a bucket of balls to the right of the L screen. Like, that's what that was like for me. So do you have is there anything in what is what is your world? Look like physically in your house, that would show you or that would prove to somebody like, you know, this, this dude is is a fucking is maniacal. We get home. I go sit upstairs and there's two there's two projectors right here. There's two TV's above it. Both TV's are on MLB network and one's on the replay of our game that we just played because AT and T. Always plays our game right after. Yup. We play you got version, two that's policy ship. I know I got I got I got to renew this year, so I can only got to wait for another year. So to gets more. All right. Keep working, but you'll be fine. We got TV's that are on MLB network and one on the replay the game. And then we got two projectors right here that will plug the computer into that will show like my bats from that night that I can break down, and like lock in and see, like, Yup, film. And then there's, there's five or so bats up there with batting gloves, and I will stand either look in the mirror or look at Jason. Hey to my hands league right dry hacking. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. And just I l do like a hundred loads. That sounds. One hundred from the game I do alone. So I'll do one hundred do like one hundred loads like, in my stance or your load, and then stop in the mirror, and make sure it looks. Right. And then we go to bed if I'm if I'm if I'm hurting like if my if I'm if my confidence is a little low like after game five when I punched out to all tough sleep with my bat. Yeah. So I've been sleeping with that thing. Off-season. What is to look like, but you don't. Yeah. You just hear it. Listen, for especially I'm sitting cutter up there. I'm like, okay comes the cutter. Yeah. Bread and butter best, one of the best cutters in the game by far ninety four ninety four ninety five. And then out of his hand on my hawk. That's a that's a fastball on swing. Four feet underneath it. I'm on a vine every day, what tagged Jared? Time I see at the even the Red Sox account is, is posting they did like a happy birthday to Nathan have all the just happen to choose that video. Yeah. Nothing to. It was it was a great clip nothing to do. So what is what is the one thing as we sit today? What is the one thing that you like you know what if BreX gonna click and take it to the next level, this is what we've gotta do? This is what I've been working on. This is this is the area of my game that I have put a central focus on this has to be better. Think it's I think it's, honestly, it's every every aspect of the game I need to get better at I last year, I started off super slow plate horrible for the first two months of the season, and then had a really good June. And then good rest of the year. But the thing I'd say is I wanna I wanna cut down on my strikeouts. A lot punch like walked like ninety five punched eighty but I wanna punch like twenty Todd. Some Tony Gwynn shit. Yeah. That's what I wanna do. So how, how do you how do you balance that value? Between obviously the be real. The monetary compensation doesn't necessarily favor or hasn't recently favored, the contact guys, you're not a contact. I by any means I'm not saying the game's gonna switch back to being contact. You. You heard it here. You heard it here. Tell roll the poll touch to hit behind a guy move around. You're gonna get fucking paid. You're gonna get breaded up the game, the game's going to change back because with today's game everyone's stolen fastballs up and curve balls. So. So everyone's swinging up right now. Everyone's trying to swing up and hit the ball in the air and that if you if you try and swing up against Justin Verlander. But you saw you saw the whole Red Sox team. They're trying to get on top of them because they got smart guys like they got smart guys, like JD Mukhi all those guys are instill in a plan and everybody else. And they're like, hey, we have to be above Orlando today. So when they're above when they're when they think of like on top they ha you have a better like when you think contact you think more of the top part of the baseball. Yes. When you when you think home runs. You think hitting the bottle of ball in the air? And if you try and hit the bottom of the ball in the air right now, with guys throwing four seamers up in his own and break incur balls. It's not gonna play for Leonard loves that. If you're trying to Homer off him that's a fly ball to right field. And he he's got quick innings. You know what I'm saying? If if if you that against Garrett right now, same thing, if you do that against a volley right now you're screwed kimbrel. You won't come within three feet of the ball. If you try and hit a Homer off kimbrel. Right. You have to try a low low low low ground ball off of him. Yeah. He's his fastball like jumps wasn't that set spin? And that's what they're teaching. They're teaching the spinner dispense stuff. So the game's gonna switch back and you've got to be more contact be able to move the ball and all the teams have had success in the postseason. They're all. So that brings me to this next question they are trying to change the game. We'd like to play a little fuck. Mary kill with some of these potential rule changes the universal D H, the pitch clock and the three batter. Minimum for the pitcher, you know about all these. Fuck. Mary, kill what do you got? Gonna marry the, the DA's. Yes, she looks good. What were the other two, the, the pitch clock and three batter minimum all hit, and quit the pitch clock? Yup. And then I'll kill the three battery that's the that's the that's not baseball. Right. It's not like there's no, there's no strategy right? Like that's what separates the ill and the AL is the NFL game is baseball shrouded. She as a purist. I'm in love with it. I don't wanna see the pitchers hit just I get it. I'm into more jobs for us. That's what the universal H provides Ivan loved to maintain the strategy of the because that's fucking baseball. But that you're just you're not gonna tell AJ how strategize you're not gonna do that. No. Yeah. Because if, if there's if the best left handed hitters in the game comes up and you wanna go get your lefty to get him out. And then you got you got Mukhi bets coming up behind him. I'm Aaron judge coming up behind him. Need some righties? I'm Anita guy come. I'm not gonna throw that same lefty. It takes. Away from the strategy of the game right there. I mean, if they do do it, they would have to have some sort of, caveat, where it's like if he gives up a Homer, the first about, you can pull you give up a run you're out. It's just going to turn into people just being like hurt. I gotta come out of the way and then there's like they're gonna fake stuff, and then you're gonna have to. If I'm the lefty, who's getting the opportunity at the lefty. I spin the lefty get him out of there. And then all the sudden the he's barking and I'm done. And then the next day Miami's, not barking. Great. Right. Yeah. Gamer. You said that you want to get better for for twenty nineteen. What's your definition of getting better? Like, what numbers are you looking at, like ofensive Lii? And I mean, there's not really a defensive metric that's that anybody likes like. Well, the defensive metrics, hate me, too. So I'm the eyeball test says different. My friends, the cow, I'm gonna I'm gonna I'm gonna play a little bit deeper on defense this year. Kind of make it a little bit more like shortstop a little bit. So I can play more angles more on that yet play more on like an x third base. Like if you're playing in I got play, like straight side to side, which is a little bit weird to me. So I'm gonna move back and play like kinda shortstop a little bit. And see if that helps I need to throw the ball better across the field. My, my metrics on defense or bad, because my throwing has been bad, and I, I have my heirs have come from throwing the ball away. So I needed improve that which is basically move, my feet, better and be more efficient with that when I throw cross the diamond were working on that every day during camp. And then like offensively I wanted I wanted hit more homers, I wanna hit for a higher average. I wanna my the biggest thing, the biggest number I want is just a thousand opium, says, what I want that we actually have that conversation view hours ago. We're talking. So, you know, nine hundred is great very. Very, very productive season thousand is. That's yeah. If you're looking if you're sorting the league leaders at the end of the year, you might see fifteen guys post or have a, an opiate north of nine hundred thousand sometimes there's nobody. Sometimes there's one. Sometimes there's too. So when we asked you earlier about like what guys did you grow up. Like I analyze ING you didn't mention any pitchers. So if you could step in the box against any pitcher in baseball history me versus you just see, like if you could take them deep. Who's or if you just wanna like step in the box and say, I wanna see what their shit looks like which are you, picking if I could God who I wanna see what it looks like. Or you think, like, hey, I wanna see how I, I would want to. I would want I would wanna see. I would wanna see Mariana Rivera. Yeah, one pitch. And just the, the best ever do it out of the bullpen like one, I wanna see what they cut it looks like always dreamed about, like, hey, what if I'm in the box against Moore, like Mariana, what's that gonna look like? And what would I have to try and do able to hit that pitch? If I wanted to take someone deep. I don't know. Maybe, maybe if you guys on our team just to see. Face one hundred times how many hits again, mo-? I don't know. Twenty nine and a half. Probably probably. Respect. I'll tell you this. I'll say thirty thirty. Okay. I like that. I like that. Respected. But I might be walking back to the dugout a few times too. And I'd be like this. And that was one of the coolest things was listening to guys come back to the dugout like as a pitcher. I'm dislike listening to the fucking pretzel. He puts these one fucking pitch new. I it's gonna Taylor way. It's cutting away from me. I still can't fucking hit it, it was just funny for me to listen to these guys, you know making your paid millions of dollars to hit this baseball. It's been the same fucking yonder. I wonder what David Ortiz us thinking during the World Series when he got him whole life. Yeah. I mean or I mean the World Series but during the postal. Yeah. Yeah. I mean he Bill Miller was the one that got him. He got him in the that a-rod brawl game. He was the one that hit the walk off. And then he also drove one backup the middle to then you get the jam shot. Yeah. No. That was off of Esteban. Loaiza. Alot. It was like a drug cartel better days. Yeah. He says, general prison right now. This is the man who introduced to the manicure pedicure. Yeah. You take a curious off the field. Many seaweed. I just I just posted a video of my first ever pedicure. Check it out on the channel calm and. You know what to expect going in there, I was? I was I was nervous because my toe had been killing me ingrown toenail. And she was poking on it. And I was like, oh, my God like this is the worst feeling of ever had in my life. And then, like the next day my feet felt great. It's they start working there with them. Shins start to relax a little pay for the extra fifteen minutes up to the shins, speaking of like things of that nature TAOs and our at the strip called last night. And I was like, oh, I think we're going to be interviewing pregnant tomorrow and kinda wanna face them, and we'll, let's see what happens. So I took a hundred bucks out of the ATM respectable baseball men would do instead of getting a lap dance with this hundred dollars. Hey, honey. When you come over here and rub down the rockets arm. Well, let's give you a little rub down. So we're pregnant join a fine dinner, and the rocket here is getting his right. Arm work on like we're in the puck and training room for like fifteen songs. Yeah. Yeah. I was like, yeah. I'm hammer is ready to go. Oh, he's I'm hammered beef tips and coconut, shrimp, and this guy's getting a fucking rug down in the strip club. That's wonderful. Everybody that for for the last year. I'd like to say this to the rocket. I actually I actually don't I, I actually appreciate the rocket. I like the guy a lot, thank you. That's I didn't expect that from you today. So is that is that like your compliment to get out of actually facing, you're gonna actually do that? You wanna face me today? Yeah. And we'll. Football. All right. Do it goes. Oh, it's about to go down this the biggest moment in my life. Of your life. Yeah. Was it a six five four four? That's right. Never forget, never forget thirteen punches rocking. The last the last with ball I tried to hit was on game day. And of course, this guy who I remember that. Yeah. He posted about tough. Look, I missed the first one to see. I didn't wanna see it. I just saw. I wanna make sure I try to get into leaving off the kid was tailgating all morning. Well, hanging fruit Koroma's. I mean that's unfair. I tried to get it removed from the internet, and I was like, someone, please take this down someone, please take this down, tough look rally retweets. Up for sure. Jack on Twitter track Jack, this is the one we need taking direct this one correct. This video. Yeah. I'll send it right. Once you finish them off, Dallas. Fair enough. He's already answer this question as oh yeah. You answer this before. Yeah. He's easing alum. But I we can he probably doesn't remember what he's doing refresh. Our memories hot tub time machine back. In any baseball moment in the history of the game you get to bear witness to it. What is it? I'll tell you mine because we've already been asked just giving giving idea watch it. You get to be there to be there for it. Like I mean I can't put you on the field because they're probably did. But you, you can be there for anywhere anywhere. I said, I wanna be there for the first baseball game being played like Abner and all the boys got together, and we're like, all right. We got on the rules here. We're the call at baseball ready. Go. I want to see how that I buck in game went down when they had no idea what to do like runners on first double play, depth didn't exist. They were just trying to figure it. The fuck out. Do you realize you can request pitch height speed location back in the day, like you could step up there, staring down, Chris sale, and be a yell left? Eight one of these guys right about ya. Some around eighty make it good. You had that ability back then. Credible. This is short stint though, schemes been offense driven since sperm, Butman, not happy about it. All not happy about it horses that. Ten hall of Famer Bill seven times. I'm not a math guy that doesn't make sense, though. Do you remember what you said? No, I don't. But I if I could if I could go to one moment in the history of the. Right now, this time I would go to. I don't know. I do not know I don't remember what I said last time. Do you remember what I remember? You said I don't I feel like it was I feel like it was Jackie Robinson. I mean that's been the most popular pick. That's actually that'd be awesome. That'd be unbelievable to see. I would. I. I don't know. I don't know. Maybe maybe maybe breaking the record. Yeah up. Yeah. Maybe maybe, maybe when bonds broke the record. It's mine. Mine. I think a big Macs was cooler though. 'cause like the race. It was the race cool. But when bonds did it, it was like giants fans loved it. Everyone was like fuck you. And then, like when Big Mac that the country was all those are two different time, periods to different things that are going on. You've got baseball needing to be saved. Guys in Big Mac, and Sosa, saving the game, putting asses in seats in front of television. And there was still appointment TV. They were Creedy appointment TV. That's that's the goal of every single baseball player ever to play the game to be in a box. And people are like, oh, he's playing today. I want to sit down and watch him hit. I'm tuning in every night to watch that guy hit because he's doing some special. Yes. Yes. That is like that sick that's it. And then you've got berry doing it basically inspired not inspite of because, you know, he may or may not have brought some of that stuff on himself. But people just weren't clamoring for it. No. Like they were on a collective scale with when he was getting one pitch. It to hit a night. If that he was hitting it more boy game. Seven just said he said he was getting a pitch a fucking series pitches series and crushing taking advantage. Yeah. Imagine imagine seeing op pitch that you could handle over the course of four days and hitting it four thirty maybe, maybe only four twenty smoking nonetheless, every time. I mean, that's not about the have you ever seen his bat in, you've been hoping is tiny was it's, it's thirty four chokes thirty two but the barrel of his of his bat shit. You not all the all the ball marks are in the same spot. Or what it's, it's maybe a ball and a half's with on the barrel, and the rest of it looks like it's been dipped in lacquer night. It's it's legit. Thought it was like, like stencil like someone spray painted that on there. So first time I ever saw a bat like that. It was actually my boy Blake. So I okay so he we grew up together, and he's hitting in the cage, and he, he's using would I because like going up use metal bat and then finally you get old enough, you start using would he's a little bit older than I am. So he started swinging the wood, and I'm like, bro. Like why is your is your bat broken? What's going on here is like Nobel like just hit the ball here over and over again? I'm like I wanna do that. And then you see a guy like Barry Bonds Baz, like, and it's, and it's flat, bro, like fucking flat. Like if you were to look down cited like this, it would just from him, just pounding. Baseball's in the same spot. It's ludicrous. That's awesome ludicrous. Honestly, I haven't paid attention to the last fifteen minutes. I'm just fantasizing about punching him out right now. I haven't heard of fucking where do you guys have been talking about on that note? Alex bregman, thank you so much for coming on a gin. We'll have to do this to sometimes sued awesome. Yeah. All right. Thanks as always to my best, pal. Perhaps he's your favorite player. He's not it should be in if he's not your favorite player. He should definitely be in the conversation for your favorite player because Dallas this is a guy who as an all star caliber player. He's, he's going to be a perennial MVP candidate. But as we saw in this interview as we saw in the video that we got to play a little whistle ball with them in the autograph session that he had after of the, the whole wiffle ball showdown, signing autographs for fans that were just waiting by watching him do this, that this is the type of guy we were just talking about the draft in the market ability of the draft and this and that. And how you don't know who any of these guys are, you know, who Alex bregman is. But do you really know who Alex bregman is in? You listen to that interview you go watch that video it, there's more to Alex bregman than the person that you just see on TV every night when he's playing baseball. He's a guy go watches UT as his own YouTube channel watch that stuff. He's a guy that is going. Is more than willing cause might trout. Not a shot at him. I don't care if, if might try to get a say. I don't care to be marketable. I'm just here to play baseball. All right. Well you're the best player on planet earth. That's fine. Because even when Ken Griffey junior was the face of baseball was the best baseball player in game know who's using the conversation for it. Sure. Alex bregman these are the conversation for it is the best player. No, but he's in the converse. He's good enough to where he could be the king Griffey junior of this generation, where you're talking about a personality. A guy that's winning guy that's on a team that is, is going to be good for the foreseeable future. So it's not like his relevancy is going anywhere team wise or individually and his personality is what makes him this, this figure this this, this entity that's going to take baseball to that next generation in bringing that younger crowd. And he cares about that. He's doing that on purpose Nazis uptaken. This is a responsibility doing some purpose. He's, he's absolutely taking it on as a responsibility. And I love. That about him. And that was what like look you spent the time with us, and we are extremely appreciative of him spending time with us. That's great cool. What he did for that. Ten minutes after spending time with us is the shit that I pay attention to. That's what I care about. Because that's what the fans care about. That's what makes this whole sheen run, folks, the fans are the gas the oil, the break there everything they make it run. And he understands that. And so after a long day at the yard bullshit with us coming out taking hacks he made the day the days of many fans and he didn't have to a very just got in the car. So, hey guys, it's been a long one, and they would have understood that had been they'd have been bitter but they would have understood because he's going to get him again. But no, he makes time for everybody in the fact that he has taken it upon himself to say you know what? No, I know. I have a job. I know I have a duty. He Trevor valor another one who understands it and other one who gets it in that regard. So I, I love to see I just I like to see guys like that have success because they can do so much for our game.

I'll take carrier Folco bell carrier type starting nine no spaces in the search bar. And let them Omaha Steaks. Get you hooked up for Father's Day. It is time for everybody's new favorite starting nine segments. Dumb show. Some love. I've been bringing multiple guys to the table for the last few weeks. And this week this I'll see if you can guess I got two guys they're both on the same team any guesses. What team they might be on the twins note? Jay. The brewers. Nope. The Colorado Rockies a couple of starting nine alumni, oh era era DeNardo, and Trevor story era Dondo a room, no. Nolan our Nado. Over his last thirteen games since may twenty first. Is it in a cool? Four eighty one with thirteen eighty one Opie S both of those marks as you would imagine. They lead the majors the majors. He he's hitting a home run every call at ten at bats. Good. It's not terrible and his weighted on base average move off, five eighty seven five eighty seven which also leads the majors. And then you've got Trevor's story, not nearly not nearly as impressive as Nolan are NADA over his last ten games in which the Rockies, by the way. Eight two is in four twenty five with thirteen fifty two PS four homers for doubles even got a three Bagger in there. And he's driven eleven runs in those ten games. So, yeah, I would say you know, if you wanna talk about the Rockies the Rockies offense is always gonna be there, which year was maybe twenty fourteen twenty fourteen I did. I took a statistics class. I think I told this story before it took us statistics class in the final paper, you has just right. Of five like a case study paper on statistics. Like, okay, I did mine on which statistic. Greatest determines team overall success. And I use the example of what it came down to. Was whip vs on base percentage and the argument of which is more important having baserunners or limiting baserunners and the example that was used was the Rockies and the Oakland and I forget which the records were but they were the exact opposite like one team won ninety seven games in another team lost ninety seven games. One team led it on base percentage. Now is the Rockies and the other team lead in whip and that would be the as so it came down to limiting baserunners being more important than having baserunners, but the Rockies are just always one of those teams that is going to have a shit ton of baserunners. And it also helps now when you didn't have the luxury of having Nolan are not. Oh and Trevor story in the middle of your lineup. These guys having based on his great. Driving them in is a little bit more important in Nolan are not out in Trevor story have been doing that. So for that I have to show them, some love. Jay, do you like to go? No, you first, please. I'm gonna go. With a young man. I just recently saw Toth's slab for an off injured off injury plagued starting rotation of the Anaheim angels. This young man's name is Griffin. Canning. Griffin canning has been a bright spot for the Anaheim angels. He's only made wanna say like five or six starts. But in that time period, he has thrown the ball extremely well over the last three starts. He's really taken his game to the next eighteen innings nine hits. Only fifteen strikeouts. He's got some swing and missing him. But it hasn't been dominant three walks. ERA of one opponents. Batting average under one fifty at one forty three. He's is allowing a massive opponents of four sixty four right now. So I'm showing love to Griffin canning for a guy who's. Who don't know what sort of opportunities, you're going to get you don't know, when you're going to get him? And you don't know how long they're going to last. So in the division. Griffin canning is in facing an offense like the Houston Astros and offense like the Seattle Mariners. That was blasting the baseball early on the season. Maybe not so much these days and a team like Oakland Athletics, frankly, that when they're right? They can provide some some pop as well. He he's got some some Waterson navigate and he's done. Well thus far. So for me, I'm just showing a little love to a guy out here on the west coast, a youngster just getting it going Griffin, canning, or on a nice three start rund us far keep it going young, Phil. I enjoyed watching the if, if neither of you say this individual's name, I'm going to have a late entry. Well, I just wanted to say that are you done Dallas done? Okay. That was very mature of you to show some love to an AOL west division rival pitcher. You know, we're talking about one hundred episodes. The maturity I've seen from you develop over these one hundred episodes. It's really impressive. I've got I got three guys because show-me some love is a segment where I can just rattle off bunch of stats. So there's no problems there. John jinro. Yes. Was that the guy? No say outstanding. You know. He's made eleven starts this season. He has one point four eight ERA, overall, okay? He's you'd five walks in seventy three innings pitched on the year to nineteen opponent on base percentage in may. You just alluded to pitcher of the month in may. He was five and zero point five nine. IRA that since nineteen sixty nine okay so fifty years of baseball that is the second lowest may ERA for any pitcher who threw forty innings in a single may behind Nolan Ryan in nineteen Eighty-four. Okay. Jen, you fucking killing it. He's been their best pitcher in a year where I think you and I or some of us were debating prior to the start of the season who would be better Clayton Kershaw or Walker bueller. The answer young. Jin ryu. You won't you sort of have Tut danced around it a little bit. I'm gonna give some more direct loved his Andor Bogart's so that it's not coming from the Red Sox guy. I think anybody who follows baseball knows that he's an outstanding player and a high end elite shortstop. But I think it's really coming into focus this year after, you know, the start of his career was mixed with promise and inconsistency. The last two the last since the start of last year he's been nothing but an x one player right now he is six in MLB among position players in fan, graphs war behind only Bellinger, trout yelich Gallo and Aaron auto. That's those are the only players he's behind so far this year. He has an eight ninety nine Opie s in over eight hundred plate appearances since the start of last season, and in terms of players who are at least partially shortstops primarily shortstops, he's behind only Lynn door. And havi air Byas in wins above replace. -ment since the start of last season. So. So far. His best season today if he keeps up this pace, certainly and you know in the conversation for the best shortstop in baseball. Ooh. Ooh Austin, Riley there. It is. That's the guy people have been begging us to talk about. I need more. I need more. I need more of a sample. He got called up on may fifteenth. So we got a better sample. Eight home runs in his first sixteen games. He joined Reese, Hoskins Trevor story and Carlos still got oh as the only players to hit eight. Plus homers through their first sixteen career games his slash line as of this morning is three twenty eight three. Sixty six seven sixteen Tober thousand over it is well over a thousand. The one thing that's interesting about him. Is that I have seen some people be like, well, what do we like the Braves are sort of dealing with a little bit of too much success on the position players side because it's like what we have Austin Riley. What do we need Josh Donaldson for where it's like you want as many good players as possible? And if Austin Riley is anywhere near as good as he shown to start the season. I mean what what an unbelievably envious core? The Braves have on between Riley and Cody Albie read Rukum Mike God, and even like I know to me, he sort of fits in the Dan's like, how does this guy have twelve home runs sort of thing. What kind of ball is this dance be Swanson is putting together his best season today? I mean, and even if he's your fifth best player or six best position player like that's incredible. So, yeah, just a little bit of loved Austin. Right. You guys have anything to add because otherwise I'm gonna I'm gonna throw a little awesome. Riley voicemail your way. Oh, please do. Right. Good. Good. Hey, Dallas and senior. I'm not a fan, but I think it's an injustice that you guys haven't touched on what Austin Miley has done even once I mean, that dude it's just been on fire became N, Flavio dude is not involved out of the park left and right back, then he used he is just another. This is another force on a team of forces in areas. Frigging plays man. Versa freeman. And you know, Ozzie in, you know, kunia, and now the new Riley and. So stop. It's unbelievable funfair. Consider that rectified, my man. Yeah. We hear you said it. Yeah, there's been a lot tweets being like you guys need to talk about Austin Riley. This is the week. This is the week. We we're not a small sample podcast. That's all we just we just we just read Omaha Steaks to you take something away from that. We need beef. It's gotta be beefy sample. We live gotta gotta get that these J one up. Twitter question. We sure do. What capital, this is a I just had this debate with somebody else. Unrelated to the Twitter question. Then I saw it and I figured that we had to throw it on the pot. What capital, Justin Verlander Don in Cooperstown. Oh man. I mean it's still. It's gonna be an Astros at because it might be. Yes, absolute because if he's going to pitch until he's been vocal about wanting to pitch until he's forty five years old. Not gonna do that. So whether operating reality. Well so, so what's reality three years, how old is right now thirty six thirty seven. Yeah. Okay, so let's give him forty. Those next three years are spent in an Astros uniform. I would be I think it's a pretty safe limb here to say that they will be competing for postseason berth for the next three years. So with that being said, just Berliner already has the World Series already has already. He's got that World Series under his belt as an Astro. I, I bet you guess, berry, well, could log another Cy Young under his belt as a Houston Astro, if that happens. I don't see how you entertain going into the hall with the Detroit Tigers. And I just don't as the scale Tipper is the World Series titles because I mean he is like, if we look at what he's done the all-star the MVP the Cy Young, I want to say with Houston. I mean he should've. That's my point. That's my, that's what I'm saying like the Allstars the Cy Young, the MVP that happened in Detroit. The World Series. Right. And the, the Syon performances. Those have happened here in Houston. And if that trend continues, and he scratches out sight young. I don't I don't see how you go in as he'll still have played like more than double the amount of seasons in Detroit in. It's not like it's like yes, he's been way better in Houston than I think any of us ever expected at the time because when I thinking back to when he was sort of on the trade bloc as an August deal. I don't think that it was like this. Holy fuck. We need to get Justin Burt. It wasn't this big of a deal, and then he became a bigger deal in Houston, obviously. And then they win the World Series. But I don't think that, that just negates what he didn't Detroit. I'm not saying that you think that it just wipes out what he didn't Detroit. But the numbers overall the, the longevity. The number of years what he accomplished in Detroit. Will still Trump anything that you could possibly do in Houston, because he still did it in Detroit up till right now he was assigned young because this is this is my thought process if he wins a Cy Young here in Houston. There's a very solid chance that they are in the World Series. And if that's the case that's two World Series appearances. Two championships. The Cy Young denoting his individual performance with the club. I mean, I'm with you and the one of those eight is he has a he had a great great great relationship with the Detroit Tigers front office. And with the ownership, the eyelid family, and so I can I can see there being an underlying an underlying amount of respect an underlying relationship that wouldn't allow him to put the Houston Astros hat on the plaque. And if that's the case, I completely understand that because it's sort of like a nod to, you know what? Because we're lender had talked about one of the biggest regrets, one of the biggest disappointments was him not being able to deliver a World Series to that franchise into that ownership group to that because of the relationship he had had with him. So I can understand that if that's like his final way to be able to just give tip of the capture the folks that made this possible for him. That would be great again. This is the romantic coming out in me. I total, I be on board with that. I totally get it. Totally. I'm not saying I'm just saying. Randy Johnson did not get to the Diamondbacks until his age thirty five season and what what hats you wear. Jay Arizona Diamondbacks. Bill, that the body of work for Verlinden is larger than it was for RJ insurance. Yeah, yeah. Yeah. No doubt no doubt and his post work isn't quite as impressive as Randy's was in Arizona. Maybe would've fucking playoff game. I don't think until you got to Arizona won four straight Cy youngs Zona too. So that hardware help. Yeah. The Marlins are eleven and five in their list, sixteen as of this question what's going on down? There say something about them other than baseball's random. All right. I will say one thing about them other than baseball. Random Caleb Smith has the fourth highest strikeout rate among all qualified starters. Major league baseball right now. He is striking out batters at a higher clip than max Scherzer, Stephen Strasburg and just in Berlin. The only guys behind Garrett Cole Blake Stehlin Chris sale thirty three point eight percent. Three point one zero, we are a three point five eight v. Opponents are batting a buck eighty eight against him. Have anybody in double digits in homers? No nine is the leader in the clubhouse tough tough. Yeah. I mean, I think that's a ffices Marlins are still bad. No, they're not Dallas. Why are you not a manager? Yeah. I don't know either. I can't think of any reasons I don't know why we talked about this before. Oh, no. It was. It was when we said like out of us three who would be the owner who would be the GM, and that's right there. And I said, if Dallas where the manager he would be like my Billy mart. That's right. That's right now, I you know. I feel like we missed an opportunity early in the life of the podcast. We had a couple of teams reach out to us about us, potentially managing the baseball game like for a promo night, actually managing and, and that would have been that would have been awesome. That would have been a kick ass time. I thoroughly enjoy my time spent at the Oakland A's fantasy camp every off-season because that's what I do is I manage my ball club for the week just going to throw that out there. I've, I've won two championships in three years, while fantasy can't manager championship that, that duty entails drafting making sure your players are healthy can answer the bell day in and day out. So I asked that same question every day. Who wins in Kowloon, eating contest db, or the rocket? Me. Me conceding that rocket. Are we talking about variety or just total pounded? I think when I think eating contest, I think probably total poundage was the intention here, then it would be me. I think like Dallas too. Dallas is going to eat more of everything. But I'm just gonna eat more overall. That makes sense. I mean, if, if we're sitting plate of, and chicken, Tinder down in front of the kid, he's not gonna stop what that's right is not going to serve chicken tenders Kowloon's Chinese figures. Unbelievable. Are you guys in support of nets being extended down the first and third baselines? I mean, I've, I've been on this for years for years. I've been all over that, man. Yeah. Like trust me. I was. And I still am to an extent a Harto. Oh, that tells you pay the fuck attention but I understand that as a player, I'm not paying the puck attention every single pitch. The players will tell you and you'll see the reaction on foul balls into the dugout. They want less than any part of that. They want. No part of that. And you saw Amora have to deal with that, like the emotion going through him at the plate watching a child being tended to because of a foul ball this this needs to happen. It needs to happen ace app and. The fan experience is not suffering the fan experience will not suffer. So here's the thing. What I mentioned earlier sit in front row at Yankee Stadium in front of a net. I you don't realize that the net is there you just get used to it, and you don't even see it. So. Anyone? That's complaining about. Nets. You are the ultimate Harto throat tension to the game, bro. Just pay attention. If you just don't get it in the face. If you pay attention you just who gives a fuck about you can barely if not at all, notice, it, once you're just like sitting there watching the game and to the point about paying attention to things going to a baseball game. Even if you are an ardent fan is still generally a passive experience. Right. You're looking at the game. You're looking at the crowd. You're eating your food. You're talking to the person next to you and you looking back at the game. Like it's no one is going very few people are going there and literally never letting their is leave the field. Secondly, even if you are that person and are paying attention to the absolute maximum that you're capable the balls are being hit at such a speed that it doesn't fucking matter. It does not matter. Nobody's being hero with this. You me if. I'm in the stands and a ball is hit me one hundred ten miles an hour. It doesn't matter whether I see it coming from the instant leaves the bat. I'm not going to be able to prevent damage to myself, potentially or the people around me. It doesn't matter because not paying attention. It's just about general safety. That's preventable. Because guess what? Guys, you're not a bucket. Big leaguer stands with the ability to defend yourself against a hundred and ten mile an hour baseball coming at you. Not only because you don't have the skill, the talent the ability, but you don't even have the resources. You don't have a fucking pair of cleats. On your feet to keep you from skating backwards. When this ball eats you alive. You're not wearing a glove probably. And if you are, it's bouncing off the hill, and knocking your fucking stupid ass out, because you're not a big leaguer and the future of baseball is not asking fans to be so plugged in that they have puckered buttonholes the entire time. You know what I mean, like, oh, my got not everybody's there to see the spin. Of the baseball as it leaves the pitcher's hand. Right. Like people were there to eat there, the drink, socialize. And they're in the take him, presumably, some decent weather Manfred cheese, uncle Manfred. I'm gonna do you a favor. And I've been doing this favor since we've been having this conversation and you've been you've been dropping the ball. But if I'm being if I'm being Frank, you've been dropping the ball or UB. Rob. I'll be Frank. Here's how it goes the Japanese figured it out. And they've got it figured out for a while. They're called excitement seats. Yep. I've said this before I've had this conversation before the seats were talking about protecting fans via a net or via extended netting. We all like those seats close to the action. We'd love to take a ballgame from right there. You know what the Japanese figured out? Human nature tells us we'd actually be more than willing to spend money to put our. Selves directly in harm's way, if it's because we just don't have the option to do that freely. So what am I? Yeah, that's right, folks, the seats you want to sit down behind home plate and down the lines and stuff here stateside, they don't have any netting kind of come at your own risk. Well, in Japan, those seats are now offered at a premium price via the home club, and you are presented with a helmet and gloves at your seat when you arrive, and that is so you are given every opportunity to protect yourself against the foul balls that, you know, are coming at you because it's been advertised as such you have paid for these seats. You are quite literally paying for the action. So major league baseball teams all across the land. You know what you do. You take those box seats that you're. Already charging out the ass for, and you tell people they can't have them. And then you tell people they can have them if they're willing to pay this much. And it's under the premise that they're directly in harm's way. These seats are seats that not everybody gets to sit in. Yeah. Those will be sold out by fucking lunchtime. K. Those will be sold out by lunchtime. So do yourself a favor. Also just put up nets. All right. Lads. This is a final question. The podcast just need some advice. He's from London. He's fairly new to baseball. And he's having trouble deciding what team to follow just wanted some suggestions. Cheers, boys opportunity to grow the game here, he guys signing to this. Well, urging baseball fan I'll tell you. But hopefully we get to hang out with you. When major league baseball drops to of its stepchildren on your front door. You don't you don't have to fall. I would actually courage to not fall in love with either one of the clubs that you'll be presented with. I'm not gonna I, I already know what we're going to recommend. The Red Sox, I would have to meet this individual, you know, I have because I mean, I've got an idea where where I could steer him. You know what start with the Minnesota Twins? No reason you should start on top. That's not the top you should start with Houston Astros. Because their bullpen is nasty that rotation is nasty their entire infield as discussing even their field is disgusting. They get a nice little manage over there. AJ Hinch passionate fan base. Pretty cool ballpark. The whole train aspect is pretty cool. Seal you'll come into like a not a bland setting. I would adopt the Houston Astros right away. Yeah. Because they're also going to be good for a long time. So you're in becoming a Houston Astros fan. You're getting to know right off the top of the bat. Some of the best players in baseball, not just on your own team. In some of the best players in baseball, I would start with the Astros. If you're if you would like your allegiances directed in the right direction. I just feel like I feel like you k- fans can be a little. They can be masochist at times. I feel so you know that. I'm an offer the Padres in the NFL and the Blue Jays in the AL. You gotta get in before. It's the stock is too high. You gotta buy ride the crest with the team. And while the Blue Jays are particularly Puget right now and playing very poorly of late. You could be getting it on the ground floor of Ladd Guerrero junior, the Shatt video all these and plus it would just be cool to be rooting for the second generation of stars at the major league level. That's plus they have great uniforms. They have a great logo. They have international appeal. They tend to draw a well when they play well, all of those things they have a tendency to spend money at least historically when they are good teams Toronto Blue Jays in the Al Padres. We talked about that at the beginning of the season, a lot of young talent got Machado to. Chris paddock somebody to look forward to tuning into on the mound Kirby gates shut down closer. I mean I didn't wanna do it. But if you're talking about floor you're gonna have to forgive me. But, you know the organization that's ready to put up a new stadium here. Bryce Oakland as you're getting ready to build a new state. On gold glove talent littered throughout the infield. They've got the most prolific power hitter in baseball season, and they unequivocally have the best Younis in baseball with those fucking Kelly greens on the announcing booth leaves a little bit to be leaves to watch the games on mute. Final. Final thoughts. One hundred episodes it, we made it. I think I think all three of us have pretty much been on every single episode. Yeah. I think I've missed that of one hundred I've probably not been on four or five would be my guess. Yeah. Dallas. You've never missed one, right? I think I've missed. I think I've missed like one maybe where just you and j whole pod. Interesting. Yeah. I still think. It's rated. Probably verse to get two hundred episodes, having spent a collective like, honestly, if you were going to put ours on it together working in a room. How many hours have we spent together all three in the same room at the same time physically together three? If we're not, if we're not limiting ourselves to just a room because we walked around DC for a few hours together that is true, true. So that trip around DC quite, literally as doubled our, yes. Probably probably like the equivalent of lake between that and Oakland, we've probably spent like twenty four hours together. Actually together. Actually together over a three year period. Hundred seventeen easy. Yeah. Yeah. Part three part parts of three seasons. Him two years parts of three seasons. I, I always I always use seasons as a measurement of time, not years. I also wanna say that, like there have only been something like two or three weeks. Total were podcasts were not released. Yeah, that's. Travel and shit too. I don't even remember that. I think I think we went like the first we had a streak of I don't want to say exactly. But I think it was like fifty five or sixty straight weeks without missing one. And then I want to say this at the beginning of this past off season. There was like a week or two here or there were nothing was issued but. Yeah. Credit to us and credit to the grounds crew. I think by the way, I think I one hundred hundred. I think that's right. Congrats to you highest batting average on the club, the Tony Gwynn the Tony Gwynn. But thank you sincerely to everyone who's ever listened to this podcast. We don't get to a point where guys like Alex bregman are entertaining. The idea of coming on the podcast without you, establishing the base for a podcast where players want to come talk. You know, these guys you seen players like Trevor Bowers like you know what fuck it. I'll just make my own, like I'll do it myself. It he's having, you know, basically the same exact guess that we've had on spring training. But if if you are a baseball player past present future. We even had guys like Casey my'son a one one last year. We're gonna try and get more guys from this year's draft on really soon. This is the place to do it in, in its place. That players want to come and they want to talk because the fan base is so passionate, and then also Dallas. I mean, this is a guy that is a absolute psychopath about baseball. I blog about him, at least pro I would say once every two or three months, but I always preface my roasts as there you never gonna meet a person more passionate about baseball than this man right here, and that sets the tone for the entire podcast is that this is Dallas Brayden a former player who's now in the world of, of podcasting who just wants to continue to grow the game. Like this is, you know, we're talking about athletes guys like Mike shout. Maybe he's not doing it. Alex bregman he is trying to do it. You'll even have to be inactive player to still try to do it. We're, we're like, that's that's our goal like we love when we go to other cities, and people are like eight, thanks. Thanks for what you do for baseball. That's what that's what our mission statement is, is we're trying to. Take a somewhat stuffy sport. And, and make it something that fans fall back in love with the that's the best compliment that I think I've ever gotten is anytime someone's like dude I kinda stopped watching baseball, but, like starring nine brought me back in, in, like now I used to fall only my team. And now I'm interested in all these other teams in players because they came on the podcast. And then I became invested in them in, like I, I never played fantasy baseball. But now I want to because I know other players in the league because you, you talk about them or with them. So this podcast is nothing without the listeners. So thank you guys. For listening been a big deal. Honestly, I'll say this much as well injured, that was very nice j, you know, how much love, I've got for you man, coming on over from ESPN with me to do this damn thing. And I think I can speak for J Jared. When I say this. Jay. And I spend a lot of time around athletes have earned far more than anything I would ever deserve their opinions carry far more weight, you would think, and then you spend five or ten minutes with folks in you realize you know what you just can't. We're just not going to be able to make the same kind of tea, but. We're able to come into this scene coming to this relationship with a guy like Jared who has the same exact passion for the game that we do the same love not only for his team, which is evident but that allows other people to fall in love with your team that allows other people if you're like need to fall in love with hating Jared as well. Which is very very necessary. It's healthy, I promise you keep doing it the appreciates it, but it doesn't happen if we don't love the game the way that you folks love the game. And that's the only reason this exists. That's the only reason that you're still listening to this point right now and haven't thrown your phone out the fucking window is because we love the game the way you love the game, and we're here to make it fun. That's the bottom line Dell. Then a big set out to Jay because this doesn't come out without J. He is a producer. He has. I mean he was originally brought in as just a producer. He made himself voice on this podcast, which. Is fucking awesome. So he is I said, a billion times, the smartest man on this podcast. He's the producer of this podcast in his also referee on this podcast. He holds wears a lot of hats knives. And there is no one more appreciative than than Dallas than night. And obviously the listeners to I mean, there's, he's become a cult hero in guarding nine bubble funk, nerd, no. That's that is a true testament to, to just the type of guy that he is in the work ethic that he has in the brain that he has in that fucking beautiful skull, that's filled with hair. That's very I was more than kind. I appreciate it, and it's a pleasure on each and every one of the hundred with you to love it. So the hairstyle hundred more will be back later this week. I think we should do. I think we should do a little Homer minute action on Thursday. We're, we're act where because we're creeping creeping up there. We're getting, we're getting to the to the halfway, Mark. A new. A lot of you're disappointed. If your team is I'm going to say and this is just a completely arbitrary number on picking if your team is like twelve games out right now you're probably not feeling good anywhere in between there. You feel like you have shot nine with you. So if you're say roughly twelve twelve games out on love to hear from you love to hear from you. Out new.

Just wanted to draw your attention to a couple of things on the ringers baseball covered. Zach. Cram wrote about the surprising twins and their best record in baseball. I wrote about this podcast favorite player. Rookie Padres right hander. Chris paddock. And my man, Danny the digger machine. Hyphen it's jumps on the the website to try to explain why Christian yelich hasn't cooled off yet. You can also find Ben Lindbergh's exploration. The surge in homerun robberies. And we'll talk about that, Ben. And I later on the show of first as always go to sack. So a couple of weeks ago on the pied Ben Limburg devoted several minutes to talking about a phenomenon called the ass. And today, I'm gonna talk to Zach cram about a human being who goes by mad bum were bringing this whole thing together. Zach crab Madison. Bumgarner has submitted his eighteen no trade clause submissions. According to Ken Rosenthal. And we're gonna talk about this you, and I yeah. The eight teams according to Ken Rosenthal are the Braves Red Sox cubs. Astra's burgers, Yankees, Phillies and cardinals. So look at those eight teams and what they have in common their all at least potential contenders or likely contenders. I think the immediate reaction that some people had was well, Madison. Bumgarner doesn't want to go play for a contender. That's obviously not what this is about le-. Let's not let's that stance is silly enough that we probably should just gloss over it. But I do wanna spend a minute on it. Because. Like their their baseball players who have the reputation for like not having quote unquote, the will to win at. I can't imagine a less convincing person to make that argument about than Madison. Bumgarner noted postseason coward, Madison. Bumgarner who never came in and relief in game seven of the World Series in pitched five innings. I think a lot of that reputation was built up and rightfully so in that twenty fourteen World Series where he pitched like half of the giants innings. Allowed what six earned runs the entire postseason, but he had a relief appearance in after a start in the twenty ten and I'll see s when he was just a twenty year old rookie like this is he is the definitive postseason pitcher of our generation. I think so well, it's good to touch on this later. But this feels like a time to bring it up when we're talking about Madison, Bumgarner, we're going to deconstruct what his value might be at this point is career. How much stock do you put in the quote, unquote playoff? Magic. I don't know. I think this is where analytics kind of has a touchy area like if you were going into a postseason start tomorrow. Would you wanna have Madison Bumgarner Clayton Kershaw? I think Kershaw is a better pitcher, but Bumgarner has the playoffs success that Kershaw has typically not experienced and how much steak do you put in that? I don't know. I also think that depending on where a team that might wanna trade for him is in the standings that could be an additional bonus. Like, I don't think Houston, for instance, has necessarily going to need a starting pitcher given all the minor league depth. They have and the bullpen depth. But let's say a team like Houston. That's already ahead by decent amount in the division and ends up thinking like we don't need to worry about the last two months of the regular. She's and we only need to worry about October. I wonder if that comes into play a little bit more there than for a team. That's like were two games back of the wildcard. Maybe we should trade for someone. Maybe not. Yeah. I think. There's something to it. I, you know, I don't want to go so far as to say that that there is such a thing as a clutch, gene. But I think there we can, you know, dry, you know, draw inferences from from past performance that certain players react better to to pressure than others. And I think the way this gets talked about most of the time is kind of a it's a reactive and really uncharitable way to to look at it because athletes fail in Spall playoff samples all the time for a variety of reasons. Some of which we never learn about is the public. And so I think it's I don't detract from players who don't come up big in the in the postseason because as we've learned from guys like al-sharif gays or berry bots players who have this kind of reputation have until they don't and sometimes they they flip out and are the best player in in a post, you know, in a run of the World Series. You know, this happens. But there are you know, I think that that in any group of. People. There are some who get really get up for high pressure Beaumont's. And I think, you know, you don't get to become a major league player or certainly not a good major league player if you can't handle pressure on some level, but Bumgarner spin he's stepped up his game in the ploughs enough that I, you know, I don't know if that's the difference between me going out and getting him versus our geo Gonzales in quite the same kind of pitcher. But you know, what I mean like somebody who who has similar regular season resume by doesn't have that spectacular track. Record. I will say that you know, the twenty four team World Series is five years in the past now. So this is I think the most interesting part of any Madison. Bumgarner trade speculation. Is you look at his performance. I think as a as a pitcher overall that postseason performance caused him to be a little bit overrated. But over the past three years, you know, he's been he's been good. Not as good as he what is was it his peak. He's had a couple freak injuries that caused them to miss half twenty seventeen and a half two thousand eighteen. What do you make of of Bumgarner as like the total package now, I should amend. Perhaps my previous statement about a team that might only be fighting for wildcard not being invested him. If you want someone to pitch in a one game playoff. Maybe Bumgarner your man he's appeared in two wild card games throwing a complete game shutout each time. But like you said those where several seasons ago several injuries ago, I have been encouraged by Bumgarner start to the season. I was pretty worried about him after the end of last year because it wasn't just the injuries. It was the fact that his strikeout rate was way down his walk rate was up. He was succeeding still if you look at metrics like ERA, but a lot of his underlying indicators were trending in the wrong direction. He's perked backup a bit. This year though. His strikeout rate was only twenty percent last year. It's up to twenty five. Now, his walk rate has been cut by more than half. He has tied for the second best walk rate. Among all qualified starters right now. And he is Alex lost. Any velocity are. Changed his pitch mixed or anything. He's just pitching batter with what he's always done. So I think he's a better pitcher now than he was last season. And that's good news for teams that might wanna trade for him. Yeah. And the other thing I would say if you're looking at him down the stretch if if you're a team that's chasing wildcard spot or in that in that mix. I think the the public perception of Bumgarner as like the spectacular one game playoff stoppers. Actually, it's not the thing. I like about him the thing. I like about him is that if he's not falling off its quad bike or you know, getting his hand broken by a line drive. He's good. A give you seven innings seven decent innings every five days and just that's a quality. That's almost I think rarer than the ability to really go out and shove for five innings and eighty pitches if everything's working for you in a high pressure scenario like seen all manner pitchers be able to do that in the postseason over the past. Few years. But guys who can really just you know, that you're gonna have a chance to win when he's on the mount he's he's really steady hand on the on the wheel and from his perspective. I think we are certainly of the same mindset here that good on him for potentially exercising. His no trade clause. There's a reason that we'd ever said why he submitted? This less reason that these clauses are negotiated. So from his perspective, he knows that. The giants aren't going anywhere this year, and he's going to be a free agent after the season. So they almost certainly have an incentive to trade him. So for him. You know, if San Francisco could trade him to the Yankees or trade him to the cubs. Maybe if there are multiple options this allows him to pick and choose which team which city he wants to join, and that's not a bad thing for a player to be able to have Jonathan Luke cry and your size that a couple of seasons. Go John Carlos Stanton exercise did to Cole hamels. So there. I think I'm not sure if it's just because I'm paying attention to it more or if it's actually happening more often. But there's a reason that players should have this power. And I think Bumgarner will still probably end up going to one of these teams just affords him the freedom to choose which one. If there multiple scenarios at it to choose not only the the situation that he wants to go to the team he wants to play for. But maybe have you know, this was lucrative thing. He I think the the rub with him turning down the train to Cleveland was they didn't promise not to pick up its player option which had had him. This was when Luke rose one of the best catchers baseball was being paid like a middle reliever. And if he had managed to free agency year earlier, I probably would have been worth something like ninety million dollars to them. And you know, I it's he went to Texas anyway and ended up not having a over that. But it's worth a shot. So. You know, I like, the the Bumgarner, you know, this does feel like you said the Astor's might not be in the market for pitcher. But these are these are other teams that have need and are going to have or going to be in it down to the to the very end of the season. You think you know, how much could the Red Sox is just another reliable starting pitcher or the Phillies? Another one more reliable starting pitcher the Burs every team on this list. Almost you could imagine them being a physician in June or July where Bumgarner is you know, the difference between them making the ploughs not. And it's maybe a little bit too early to start thinking about this. We usually don't see big-name midseason trades until at least after the draft which is in early June. But there aren't that many reliable starting pitchers who could be available this summer or any reliable starting pitcher period. Yes. That was the point. I was making a couple minutes ago. And a lot of them have already filtered onto the good teams. So it's not like the warriors are going to have. Starting pitchers. Anyone wants maybe like Caleb Smith from the Marlins, but he has a few years left on his contract. And then you're down into like, Mike minor for the Rangers. Maybe an I happen to like, Mike minor. But I don't think any fan base is going to be more excited about Mike minor joining the team than Madison Bumgarner, which does bring up the question if you were a team like the twins who I wrote about earlier this week. They had at least when I wrote about them the best record in baseball. But they could definitely use some rotation help. If you're Minnesota would you rather get Bumgarner trade the prospect. So you'll need to trade for Bumgarner. Would you rather just pay the money that it takes to sign Dallas? I mean, you know, where I stand on that. I'd probably rather have kaikal Bob Garner's pitcher. Although I, you know, I'm that's I don't think that's universal opinion. There's room for disagreement on that. But if you're gonna sign douse kaikal, and you should have done in the off season. And that's you know, I it's just frustrating that they didn't take that that measure or you know, if it's just money you can do both. I can't imagine. The Bumgarner is going to this close of free agency being who he is at this point is crew who's reliable, but die, you know, a top ten pitcher in baseball. It's not gonna take that much to get him away. From the giants particularly for a team like the twins with a farm system is deep is a hat. So I don't think that's an exclusive thing that you you have to do one or the other. But I don't know for some reason just kaikal not having pitched this deepen the season feels risky to me at this point. You said that the cost of garner wouldn't be that high. I tend to agree with you. I think every summer now, we're like, wow, big that rental for such a small price. But that's kind of where the sport is now at least for non elite relievers. I think like in twenty sixteen when the key is brought back labor Torres for all this Chapman. And Clint Frazier injustice Sheffield for Andrew Miller that was kind of a nominally in rental players at this point are not fetching the best prospects. Like the dodgers brought back you Darvish in twenty seventeen trade and that was for Willie Halloween who's a decent prospect and to lower guys. I imagine the price. Rebound garner would probably be similar. Yeah. I I mean Calhoun a good prospect. But Bumgarner is in is good. Now is Darvish was then. Exactly. Yeah. Yeah. This is a where where would you like to see him go where do you think he's a good fit? I think even though Bumgarner is hitting like perhaps his reputation suggests he is he still fits better in the National League. I just like having that possibility of hitting and I like seeing him in those games. I think Atlanta is maybe the best nationally fit just because the Braves have so many young pitchers in young pitchers who aren't necessarily reliable I've discussed that before on this podcast. It seems like they have a lot of number three number four types. So they could use not only just a veteran who's been around. But someone like you said who's going to be stable in there at Haitian and eat up a lot of innings. I think that would make a lot of sense and the brave certainly have the prospects to give back without making too much of a dent in their farm system. I like I just like the idea of the twins going all in. I think that's where I'd I'd put him. But you know, I think the Phillies are in a in a similar situation of the Braves. I think the brewers earn a similar situation of the twins. You could see moving to the cardinals. I will say there's part of me that's going to be sad to if he does end up moving. There's a part of me it's gonna be sad to see him go. 'cause you know, I'm obviously all four free agency and free movement appliance and stuff. But like there is something to him being and I contact member those three championship giants teens where it's gonna it's gonna feel weird seem in a different uniform. I will say so guys pitchers like that who get traded like the Verlinden the Verleger trade. I think wasn't as weird as it could have been because and this is gonna sound very strange, but the Astros have the same colors as the Tigers away. Uniforms and the same with hamels moving from the Phillies to the Rangers to the cubs. Like, I wanna see Bumgarner. Completely different colors, which I guess like we're almost guarantee to because the giants with the black and orange. Let's say trade him to the Orioles. That's that's a near certainty. Bumgarner just looking at the shape of his career is really interesting because he is only twenty nine years old this shot like, yeah. That's the same age as Zack Wheeler. That's the same age as Ross stripling who are pitchers we think as up and coming and oh their best. His might still be a head of them. Bumgarner has had an entire career at this point. Obviously that's because he came up so young, but he also came up on this giants team. So it wasn't just that. He was a twenty year old in the maters was that he was a twenty year old on the biggest stages, and he would like had his icon ick postseason run when he was just twenty four. So he still has a long career ahead of him. I think the way he's bounced back this year makes me a lot more confident about how he's going to age obviously that Matt. There's more for after the season when he's a free agent, and hopefully isn't left to wait like all the other thirty year olds have been over the last few seasons. But it's just really interesting to look at that trajectory and think that he still has maybe some positive days ahead of him. Yeah. We'll see. Yeah. I mean talk about accomplishing a why really early in Crear that. I mean that icon crun- to the that you talked about in two thousand fourteen you know, twenty four years or twenty five years old. He's one of those guys with a birthday that's closer to be refuge. Cut off. Twenty five years old that was his third rank which is incredible. So anyway, it's gonna be I don't think trade is imminent, but it's worth preparing ourselves for in advance. Because it's like I said it's gonna be weird seeing a different uniform one guy we can count on being in the same place next week. Is that cram? Thank you as always for joining me. Thank you.

I guess today is my good friend and the managing editor of baseball perspectives. Craig Goldstein, Craig welcome to the show. Thank you for having. So I asked you what interesting things have gone on in baseball. And you have written about one of them out for do go. The outfielder for the Los Angeles Dodgers is doing some pretty incredible things in terms of the combination of power and contact rate. So you've written about this with graphs and charts and so forth. But why don't you give us a quick rundown of what he's doing a wide so special? To during conversation. I was having with tear who's another writer Enos looking at some of the plate discipline stats that we have is all perspectives there also fan drafts are all over the stack Z contacts, which is the amount of times or the percentage that a hitter mixed contact women swing of that's in the strike zone. So it's a fairly granular stat. But it is indicative of how good evanger is at making contact. It is that they should be making on on announce reduce rates at the top of the Lee at just under ninety seven percent in Z contact rate. So what I did was you know, I thought it was really interesting guy. That's been able to us far hit for some power was serious. How Haman that really was around the league. So I looked dating back to two thousand eight so the last eleven or ten seasons change over. We haven't twenty nineteen at the guys were the best at times act in the strike zone. And. The list is a lot of guys that you might expect. I would like to literally read this list on the air because like you can say guys who make a lot of contact in the zone ten now tiff for power. But I think these names really drive that home could extend it just saying that would not. So here's here's A-List David Fletcher this year, Ben revere in two thousand fourteen Zach granite 2017 Aaron miles in two thousand eight j b shuck in two thousand sixteen I can't believe j b shuck was playing in the majors that on Cesar is terse and twenty twelve Ben revere again in two thousand fifteen Eric Sogard the face of baseball in twenty fifteen Ovar and Fontaine twenty eleven. There is no power. And then there's this list of players as I put it in table with. Baseball prospectus deserved room created plus stat where Virginia top list, he's beating David Fletcher. Who's having a very nice year in two thousand nineteen this year by one point by everyone else by at least thirty. So if you look at the slugging percentage is only guy in the five hundred 's his isolated our eyeso- is only in the two hundreds and a very few people are even in the one hundred on this less so ridiculous seventh since twenty soon like I said in Z contact rate, and he's the only one doing it hitting brainpower power. So the next thing I want to look at was a Eliza guys who had this type of contact ability. I said I said the threshold for a ninety four percents contact rate, and I also filter or an ice oh of two hundred or more. So guys that were combining ability to may contact at a fairly elite rate in the zone and also hit some power. Now granted. Redo go is only a quarter or so the way through the season. So this can obviously change the rest of these guys are full seasons. But if you put it put him in with with the other players are only four players who have done this. And they are our Paulsen to designate Rafael for Colin two thousand eight people forget how good he was. He was also hurt your two dozen Levin Kinzler and twenty sixteen bets and those are all siphoned for all who was injured. Those are all six wins or better in terms of of great now over season and redo actually contacts than any of them in terms of his so it's really remote. So in what this boils down to is. There's almost a contradiction in if you haven't approach in swing mechanics that allow you to make that much contact on pitches within the zone, you're doing other things that are going to rob you of power. So whether that's not selling out, or you know, whether chasing. Pitches that sort of thing it's very difficult. I mean almost impossible to make this much contact and still hit the ball hard. I guess what is what do you think is allowing due to do this? Basically better natural ability to make contact. He's had that since he was drafted. And the question was always going to be whether he was going hit for an hour. The anything that he all he's always made hard contact. We at EP had an eyewitness account, which is essentially version of like a scouting report that but a plus plus rate on his hitch will instead we have fringe average our here, but it's mostly because there's not a lot of loft in swing which allows the is is in the Hanes room for really long time. And the thing that's that's happened over the last few years in baseball. There's been a lot of trade offer some of these high guys to add some loss to their swings to add some you know, some to steepen swing playing which their bat in the hitting zone a shorter amount of time. And so that's that this combination really hard to find because it's often tradeoff. So getting together is really difficult. I think art of what that is. Is China wharf is the hittings from the reds, but was previously with the dodgers and has gotten some credit and worked with Justin Turner among other people at the ability to to help guys and swing up on the ball without straightening off too much contact. I think that's something that reduced has done a little bit ear, but Robert van soy off the current doctors was someone who with JD Martinez to do this type of thing. So he has that ability as well. And I also think we've done a lot of research, and I'm sure people heard about this. But the ball is different. You know, it's back to kind of twenty seventeen levels in terms of the drag resistance and installing further I think the type of profile that's into hell are these players who made as much contact is someone like do does. He wanna go back to fifteen to half of teams twenty seventeen our ball. You're looking at the breakouts. From those ale to bay or. Or a Ramirez guys like that make a lot of contact. But we're Esa -sarily thought of as major power guys all of a sudden hitting twenty five thirty. That's that's something really fascinates me. I know you mentioned Jared Seidler theory about this in in your article at something he talks about a lot is guys who have that hit hit tool, and essentially like trading a great of hit tool for trade for greater power. And just the whole thing clicking. What's interesting to me is like the the body type while this isn't the only interesting thing there, forty five interesting things about this. But one of them is the body type of a lot a lot of these hitters share, which is Verdoux go is listed at six foot two ten and it's just sort of a cubicle body Taifur him and a lot. The the baseball swear is the square guy. But yeah, he someone has us to he was not a power guy Muncie. And then all of a sudden he was and some of that is trading power. But he's also good enough that he had contacts give up to make tring at. So like, the the short limbs shorter levers, you know, babies shorter spotter geyser are strong in other ways certainly say that about altuve air, Mookie Betts end these the players. Are you look it is y'all bees for call had that body type e Kinzler with certain extent. Even our pools. I think is like. Like, he's. James about talks about the the Matt stairs body type. And Kirby Puckett was one like like pools is gigantic. But he's also you look at the man of him. That is tore so verses arms and legs. Like he's built like this just in a six foot three frame instead of a five nine frame like something like like, bats. You know, it's interesting to see the know we like length in so many other sports, but having these sort of stumped arms and legs or his might be an advantage of baseball. Yeah. About someone who's who's in the news today in Europe is coming up for the brewers, and he's very much. He's shorter swat. But he's he's fit with to seize right? He's not he's not done. But he is sick. And he has that strength in his in his legs and his arms, but it's a really short swing and we've seen what he's been able to do a major league baseball. This is one of reduce drag down in LA is numbers are pretty laughable. First of all he's in the PC L, but sightly, but that ball in in the Pacific coast laid which is is a high octane hitting environment in the first place. And you're he's a six seventy slugging percentage. And I think he's like only forty or fifty percent better than the average our nuts. Yeah. And our remember one of the reside liked him coming at UC Irvine. Is it almost seems like you can scout for that? Now that when you're looking at a college player in amateur player. You know, you could see the guys. Who might be able to make that kind of judgment because here or was he was a first round pick despite not having played any defenses junior year because of injury. And like he just hit tool was so good. And you could see the other physical attributes that might one day allow him to turn into, you know, always are L to their, you know, somebody with that kind of hitting profile. Yeah. There's an interesting to spare to make between here and someone like Nick Mattielo, right? Matt Rolleston food prompted us Abbas conversation that I quoted Jared either from a because he's he's a extremecontact hair of the question is whether he's going to have the power play. I think the ball can help him with that. But he's he's got at least a grade less. Our the even gave her doing small to is and compare that to on at like would always say about Al to as east five foot six, but he's built like Darren sproles and outs bregman is kinda body type and magic all is skinny. Absolutely, absolutely. I think it's interesting. It's a different type of Hitchin profile. You look at the breakout of guy like you'll among kata who often said like you said Darren sproles like he's built like running and he's a bigger version of her. But again, and he doesn't have the same. Hateful swings and misses a lot, but he's making contacts now. And all of a sudden he's out in this monster breakout? One other guy who I think you've brought up who didn't make this list because of plate appearance restrictions, but I think you've mentioned in the same vein as Williams acidy. Oh, I mean, nobody's got more contact skills in him. And he's got a an isolated power over two hundred right now too. He was on a minimum one hundred plate appearances, which is not that many. But audio has been hurt this year. So he he didn't like, but he's absolutely honest. I think he's also slung over five hundred and yeah, I mean, he's exactly the type that we're talking about where this elite contact ability. And because because the ball is different. I think it's allowing his power play out in different rate. You know, we talked a lot about the trade off between contact power. But some of these guys are just living in this, basically, they're they're in the middle of diarrhea, right? Where they're able to not only maybe they give a little context or four little power. But there has such a high contact rate that it's actually essentially all of it like it it forms together is for voltron thing where they're just so much better of that that nexus of those things rather than trading one off or it's an ample. All right. I'm actually really enjoy a lot of these players, and I'm very excited for the golden age of the penguin shaped human being in major league baseball. Before before you go. I want to bring up one other dodger player who's having a really incredible year. And that's Jin Ryu who has flown under the radar. It almost feels like a player like him shouldn't fly under the radar. But the dodgers have just had so many big name players over the past few years that and RIA struggled to to stay in the rotation. But this year he after sub to your a in limited action last year. He has a one seventy two year eight now, let's just look at his last three starts. He went into the eighth inning. Sorry pitch at least eighty eight innings all three times out and in twenty five innings. He's allowed nine hits one walk at just one earned run including he took a no hitter into. I believe the eighth inning. His last time out. This is like I I mean like he's showing best pitcher in baseball upside almost after being amid rotation guy for most of its career. Yeah. I through one of our writers that I'd like to see something from scouting perspective on how he's doing this. How he is. When healthy one of the best issues in baseball. You know, he's pretty much never healthy. Because I don't think his stuff would would normally put him into that zone. This year last year. He was really good. A straight our eight of twenty seven and a half percent. He walked under five percent banners. As like, you said sub to ERA in fifteen starts this year. He's he's sick up is a strike to over twenty eight percent in he's walking under two percent banners right now, Eric even said that you had walked a batter at home since the end of twenty seventeen again some of that is miss time with with injury. But it's still utterly remarkable. And yet he followed up a ninety three pitch Maddux. You know, throwing a complete game under a hundred hitches with a taking over into the end as you said i-it's been unbelievable. He's also one of the most interesting features just in general. I think he famously he wanted to change the grip on her whole. And this was when it was on daughters. Twin sixteen many twin seventeen he he asked back to show him his curb ribbon. Obviously Beckett's curveball was a major part of his career. And he just took it into a game in through it for is showed him, the grip. He I think he practiced the whole time, but it wasn't like he slowly worked in into warm-ups. And and threw it in Bolton sessions or anything like that. You just went into a gaily used effectively. He's just he's kind of a savant when it comes to fishing and the ability to do that thing this year, obviously, he's down on the walks in zone constantly. He's also throwing a singer way more than he ever has before. I think it was about five percent of his fitches last year right now, it's fifteen and he's leaning on his change which has been his bread and butter since he came over from Korea, and he's leading on that a little bit more often. So I think it's. Fish Knicks is also he's just one of those guys were if you read scouts or been able to be around scouts people talk about ill in field for bitches. He'll for game he has elite he'll both both in his pitches. And just he's meant to the on the mound and one last interest in it on real. And I didn't know this until I was listening to the broadcast in Davis brought it out, but he was actually born right handed. But he's left handed does everything he's doing. He's throwing lefty. But he's a natural writing. This is the the Billy Wagner Michael Vick throw through his left. He does everything else ready yet. And I think what did it out of the heat her, right, right? I think he broke his arm. It broke his right arm and started throwing lefty and broke it again. I might be mixing up his story with Vic story with were Campanella story, but some some. Yeah, some injury. Yeah. I guess is that just said it's gonna be easier. If you're lefty. And so gave him gave him a lefty log, and and the rest is history. At least according to the the, bro. Yeah. Yes. It's instead he's one of the most fun ventures watch without the explosive stuff. You're used to seeing he's not Burland. He's not Walker. Bueller? Right. But is out of more light rich L terms of Justice feel for a few different inches and and manipulates all in zone constantly is he's a time. So you mentioned the walk rate of what is one point six percent? One point five percent this year to put that in context. We sorta glossed glossed over that that's less than half. The walk rate of the second best qualified star right now. Like, you look at guys you look at this last year, the the walk rate leaderboard, even guys who you think of working within the zone and not really having overpowering stuff like miles, Mike lesser ashamed. Bieber having success like that stripling was up on that leaderboard last year. And reuse doing that to a greater extreme and also striking guys out. It's I mean, it it. It's mind boggling what he's doing right now. Amazing to me is obviously there are these either or meeting in Cleveland system, errands, Cepal, I am might be saying his name wrong. But there's some of these just never want in the end of a history of it. But missing bats at a level that is it is often with missing if you're in the musters up. This is the Phillies Cal State Fullerton teaches teaches this like just never throw anything added zone. And then the Phillies always end up with they ended up with Connor Siebel than Thomas Eshelman's, the the best example of this to his Colt Eastman. I think was the other the other guy they drafted and all those guys have trouble making the majors. I mean that was the scattered report on on Bieber to and he's managed to change his game a little bit. Yeah. It's pretty wild. So John Jim you Alex for do. Go the entire Los Angeles. Dodgers are doing interesting stuff there, lower reasons so much people. Yeah. I mean bellinger's I'll say. What bellinger's doing maybe a little more obvious? So we've talked about him before I'm sure we'll talk met him again.

But then Ben Lindbergh jumped up and pulled it back, and we're going to do another fifteen twenty minutes on on home run robberies in a couple of other topics bend. Thanks for joining me. Yeah. Excited about topics today. Yeah. Well, you should be. 'cause you just wrote a big article about the first one this is home run robberies. My I know this first hand because my fantasy team suffered just last night when George Springer rob Nico good room of a home run you wrote extensively about homerun robberies and how come place coming. So why? Well, I sorry for your loss. I give you my condolences for you start. I wanna say like we've the title of this article is watchers on the wall walk and welcome to the golden age of the home run robbery. I think this along with the Vlad Guerrero. Prince that was promised have no is. Cantu to my rain worms. I know. We really do. I didn't even come up with this one editor Justin sales did. And I said for once not writing about game of thrones. And you still give me a game of thrones title, but we're really on brand at the ringer. What we'll do with ourselves next week. But yeah, we have all just reached peak code run robbery right now. And it sort of makes sense because we're at a record home run rate, and you would figure that the factors that would contribute to a high home. Run rate would also contribute to a high homerun robbery rate and that has been true, historically, but we've seen twenty one home run robberies this year, according to sports info solutions and that puts us on pace for eighty four which would shatter the record at least going back to two thousand four of sixty five and it could be small sample except that that record was set last year and the previous record was set the year before and the couple years before that were very high too. And those just happened to be the extremely high supercharged home run ball. Era. And so it's part that it's partly that. We're just seeing the ball Kerry farther. It's partly that hitters are of course, aiming upward and we're seeing lunch angle increase. So they're fewer grounders every year, which kinda counteracts the fact that they're just fewer Paulsen play in general because of the increasing strikeout rate, and then the other factor is that you have outfielders who are standing deeper and deeper every year, according to the set cast data, which is probably because they have realized that the ball is carrying and guys are hitting in the air and no one hit singles anymore. So why even bothered to prepare for ground or through the infield? And so what you have is more balls in the air, more deep fly balls and more outfielders who are standing at the ready and are capable of getting back to the wall and time to make a grab and here. I thought this was all just the result of Ramon Laureano playing every day for Oakland. He's got two of them. But he is not the only one this has been kind of a group effort. And I think it's really cool because this is I think the most exciting play in. Baseball. It's just a breathtaking play. You can endlessly watch a home run robbery highlight, not everyone. Sometimes it's kinda like you stand under it, and you just reach up in your tall and the fences short didn't Aaron judge have one of the. As the playoffs. Yeah. Yes. Not all of them are great. But when they are good. I think they're just the best highlight that baseball can generate and we saw that last week with Jackie Bradley, jR. We saw last week with Josh Rettig, and you can just go down the list and just think of all the famous ones and chevelle or Dwayne wise or Gary Matthews junior. My all time favorite. It's just the best. And I think it's getting better now because there are so many home runs. So we all just assumed that every deep fly ball is going to be gone. And so it relieves subverts your expectations when at the very last instant the outfielder brings it back in the built in drama because sometimes you don't even know if you caught it immediately. He'll fall down you have to wait to see if it's in his glove or over the fence. And no one knows and you have to see replays, the figure out what actually happened. I just think it's great. And it's nice and refreshing to actually be able to talk about something in baseball. That is increasing that we all like because this is kind of the opposite of. Every conversation. We have about baseball now where we're all. Just the moaning, you know, increasing strikeout rates longer games slower pace fewer balls in play. So many homers that the Homer seems less special and all that's true, and maybe worth worrying about but the silver lining is that we are getting more homerun robberies. And we're now seeing one say every two days instead of sometimes going week without one in twenty fourteen when there weren't many homers. There were thirty one home run robberies all season or thirty three. I think and we're already at twenty one. So the rate has really picked up, but it still rare enough to be special. Yeah. I wanna go back to what you said. Because this is what stuck out to me reading, the the piece is the you called it the best player the most fun playing baseball. And I that struck me because I you know, I have is going to shock you considering how many things I have opinions on. But like opinion on what the most fun playing baseball is that would be like any kind of of long developing close tag play. Whether that's. Like, not necessarily pickle. But like the guy trying to score from first on a double. Or you know, they say the triple is the most exciting playing baseball. You could even be something like a six four three double play. But that has the similarity to the home run robbery where it takes a while to develop in their Strommen, and there's uncertainty. Yeah. But the way you you put it like the expectation setting up expectations than subverting them. I think is is a really good really persuasive way to to put it because I've I've found myself agree with you by the end of this state. Not only does it have the the drama, and I would say almost war athleticism because you think about the guys who do this. Whether it's Laurie auto or Byron Buxton might traps had a couple of like, this is one of the few times that you really see peak athleticism of a baseball player on display. And then all the the narrative things you mentioned. Yeah. It was told by someone that very recently unceasing Beth is podcast. Cameron may been said that rubbing a home run his the most exciting playing baseball. And he would know because he's done it eight times which ties him for the fourth most since his debut, which maybe he's biased. He's not turning in. Field triple plays or something like that. But we're heading many home runs. That's too. But yeah, I think it's the combination of the expectations, and then just the sheer athleticism that's on display when one of these goes really well, and I'm glad that I took a look in this article at like fence depth, and fence height, and those haven't changed much recently. But in the past you had much higher fences you had much deeper fences and the conditions just weren't right for homerun robberies. But now everything is conspiring to give us more of these. And I welcome it. It's almost twice as common as it was just a few years ago. And I think that's a great development. Yeah. I've I've just got your your leaderboard up here, and you mentioned like fence staffed with or fence height rather was something I thought about 'cause I mentioned the the judge play. But like Josh Radic in George Springer who both play a lot of right field minute maid where the fences like it's not literally waist high. But it's seven foot fence that right field fence. Assured. Jackie Bradley, Mookie Betts playing with that short fence in right center in Fenway on the one that was at torii hunter who went up and over at don't remember. But wealth, the Gary Matthews junior one is is the the famous one where he just jumped in twirled. And I don't know how he did that. But I and that but that was on like one of the that was on offense in the like one of those eight ten foot fences in like nineteen seventies ballpark. I think what made that so incredible with the the extension that he got right and Bradley sorted that last week. Yeah. The the most likely in common location for homerun robberies is Camden Yards by a fair degree going back to the beginning of the state at because they have seven feet fences almost all the way round to except for right field. I think in so that contributes to it. But really you need a lot of things to break. Right. And we're just seeing a lot more balls in the sweet spot that lead to home run robberies. We're seeing outfielders prepare for them better than they ever have. And I just think it's nice to be talking about something. That is getting more exciting in baseball were Ganic Lee. And sure that's happening. As a result of the supercharge baseball all the home runs. They go hand in hand. But at least if we're lamenting all the other things, we can celebrate this one thing that we're getting more often, I agree entirely. So let's celebrate something that's nocco and civil. A team that hits. No home runs. You wanted to talk about. I think the way you framed. It was our the twenty nineteen Marlins worse than the twenty eighteen Orioles. No question mitt to not having paid as much attention to the twenty nine Marlins as I have two other teams. So this forgivable. Yeah. I really do hope that that's you know. You know that our listeners won't hold that against but. Somebody mentioned their best player having x y z like who is the Moreland best player. I think locker right? He's her fest hitter. I mean by you. Who there? War-leader is I think Al Fara would have to be in that conversation when you consider position defense, Brian Anderson. Yeah. Leading the the Marlins in baseball reference war at zero point four so must be developed because he's not hitting. Yeah. What do we that's that's a level? That's rounding that's a rounding error below or above of of replacement level. Yeah. I mean teams like last year's Orioles. Don't come around that often. Maybe they come around more often in this era where you see great teams and terrible teams. But I wasn't expecting anyone to challenge them. So soon, but I think the Marlins are really gonna make a run at it. Because they're in this division where you have at least in theory for good teams who are competing and beating up on each other and beating up on the Marlins, then you had the Marlins who currently aren't trying to win in the short term. And so right now they are playing at a forty to win full-season pace. The Orioles ended up with forty seven last year gifted round up to get the Marlins two to forty two by the. Way. And it's not that they've been on lucky really because they're run differential. I think actually says they should. They've been. So I mean last year's Orioles underperformed. They're run you would expect that they would underperform something if they like like nobody is bad enough to just be a true talent forty seven win team. They under perform their run differential by eight games. Anyway, having said that however the the Marlins have the run differential of team with a two thirty winning percentage which over the course of one hundred sixty two game season. He says waiting for the calculator is a thirty seven point four when t right. Yes. So the bright spot or the non depressing spot is the starting rotation which is credible rotation. It's decent. You've got guys like Caleb. Smith and Papa Lopez and Jose Arena. It's a pretty decent rotation. But beyond that, it's a complete disaster. So the bullpen is arguably the worst in baseball this year. It's the worst by fan graphs words, the worst by park adjusted v I think they're closers surge. Jio Romo right now who has like a sixty IRA they have essentially one reliever who's pitched well this year, and then the real problem, even bigger problem here on Guerrero. Yeah. The offense currently is or would be the worst offensive all-time. So if you search just at fan, graphs Goto the modern era nineteen o one to present. And you're searched by WRC. Plus, so one hundred is average lowers worse higher is better. The Marlins currently have a sixty five WRC, plus which would be the worst any team has ever had over full season. They're hitting two nineteen to eighty three three ten as a team with twenty four homers, which is also the worst in baseball. And of course, this is a pretty high offense era, and obviously a high homerun era, but it is not in Miami. They just cannot hit it all. And I don't know that they're going to you look down the lineup. And yeah, there will be guys who will be better almost by default. I suppose. But it's just there are there are guys in that lineup who. Have hit well in the recent past. But not so well that I would guarantee they're going to hit once again guys like Starling Castro. Curtis Granderson Martine produ, right? I mean, those guys will be better. I guess, but it's not gonna be good. It's not gonna be much better. And if anything they made trade guys like Castro Granderson if they do bounce back. And so maybe the lineup will be even more depleted in the second half Brinson, of course, was really off to a terrible start again and has been sent down. So I mean, you can kind of look at this moans team in squinting see prospects in farm system in a future. Although I know that Marlins fans such as they are have been squinting to see that future for decades now, and that's just kind of the perpetual state of Marlins fandom. But right now, it is really rough to watch this Marlins team. And I don't know I think the at least gives us a bit of everything it gives us. Good teams and a great close race. And then it gives us perhaps one of the worst teams of all time, which is fun to follow from a fire in its own way. If you're not rooting for that terrible team Marlins. Non pitchers have six oh, eight six. Oh, eight collective oh. PS Zach cranky for his career has a five ninety four. That's a sets that. Yeah. And that's not like, I know he's been red hot this season. The somehow has five extra base it separately. But that's for his entire career that those are his his offense of numbers, it's ugly. It's been it's not gonna get touch less ugly for I feel. I've I've must've ashes before reminded when we were talking about the royals in the Orioles last year if a team goes forty one in one so the the all time record for worst record in baseball is the nineteen sixty two to four forty one sixty and just didn't play the last few games of the season. If a team goes forty one and one Twenty-one is that the worst record wall time in your estimating. I think so I'd say so I mean, especially if you don't have the exclusive being an expansion team that I think would make it even worse by comparison. I mean, obviously like the league as a whole is getting better and more competitive all the time. So. It's somewhat were excusable to be terrible relative to the league in twenty nineteen than it wasn't at the same time talent pool so Bank like what's your if the, you know, if the nine hundred sixty two Mets could manage to to put together a better better more competitive team with like nineteen sixty two level scouting. That's that. Would almost be a bigger indictment to me. Yeah. Well, there have been negative stories about the Marlins front office to and losing their AAA affiliate and not liking Doug's. And so there's behind the scenes drama going on here. And there's just off the field. Well dysfunction is to charitable word for what's happening on the field right now. So they're going to give the sixty two Mets run for their money. I think hey, so you brought this up talking before the show one reason that were comparing them to last year's Orioles. And not this year's Orioles is the Chris Davis odds. Yes, I which like, wow. Talked about or he ah he went what like a first eleven games of the season with that hit. And we brought up his numbers since the first game. He got hit. He's hitting two ninety three seventy one five eighty one overs pass twenty one games, which is like not just bouncing back from being the worst player in baseball. That's good by anybody's standards. Yeah. It's incredible Khyber n- has taken the corpse of Chris Davis made him bigger and better than before. At don't know how this is happening. But of course, he set the all time record rate oh for fifty four for a position player. And if you look at the players he passed on that list like Craig counsel had an over forty five and villas head the record before Davis over forty six. And both those guys were like at the end when that happened as you would think like you don't really bounce back from this kind of thing so council had forty more at bats after that streak ended by the end of his career, and then Villa's history still active he'd never gun that his career ended. So you wouldn't have expected Davis. Two pounds back. But then he really has. So since the first day he got his head, and he got three hits all at once on that day. So that was April thirteenth. He has a one fifty four WRC plus since then that is the thirty eighth best in baseball, which doesn't sound so impressive. But for him to be closer to best than worst his in itself. Impressive. I think this is over in equivalent stretch of games. This is the best. He's hit since early twenty seventeen. So he's back to like genuinely good Chris Davis. And it's not like he's just prioritizing getting hits and he's just trying to make contact although he is making some more contact, but he's hit for power to hit five homers slugged five eighty one as you said. So it's not like he's changed his approach in that sense just to avoid embarrassment. He's been with jibbidy good. And he had been hitting the ball kinda hard before. He snapped the streak so he was running into some bad luck there and. Yeah. He's been a little lucky during this streak. I mean, if anyone deserves to be lucky, it's Chris Davis. I think so it's not like he's back to being great again. Let's say, but is back to being a team be in great for three weeks, which is more than anyone possibly could have expected. So there's hope for the Marlins, I guess if if Chris Davis can bounce back to I mean, this is Chris Davis since he snapped that streak has hit better on a per plate appearance basis than he did the last time he led the league in homers. So he's been like close to peak Chris Davis again and sure maybe it won't last, but for to last this long, no one would have seen that coming, and it's kind of gun from a really depressing story like he didn't outwardly seem to let it get to him too much in the fans weren't too tough on him. They were kind of behind him rooting for him to step a street almost that. I could see that like that pity being not. Worse than just being jeered every time up. But yeah, being depressing in its own way. Right. There is at Sports Illustrated story from the end last year that was one of the satisfies baseball writing that I added like the writing was good, but the store the content was was very very sad. And I remember you saying because you wrote about Davis earlier this year, and you said that you regretted it. But you said it just sort of depressed you to write about it. You like him and Trevor us they'll do in this when you just look at the numbers at first blush. Like while it's hilarious. And then you think about like Haro like that level of consistent professional failure on that that a biggest stage like, I know it's Oreos games, aren't that many people watching but still Scott to be huge bummer? And so I came away from that. Yeah. Feeling a little guilty for finding it funny for as when you think about it for more than a second. It's just you know, you wouldn't wish that on anybody? Yeah. I didn't wanna watch. Such and I was relieved when it ended. And now, it's almost an inspirational story. I mean if Chris Davis can bounce back from that we can bounce back from anything. So he went from not being able to hit to being really good. So your move Marlins. I guess see if you can do it too. Oh, boy, I will say I just took another look at the Marlins roster in there. I don't think there's anybody on that roster who even at their peak was as good as as a prime Chris Davis, ABC know, oh seven Curtis Granderson. Maybe they should trade for him pick up. Chris davis. That'll in the seats. Yeah. Maybe we were. Oh, this was what I was going to say when I was writing my Chris paddock thing over the weekend. It Hinsch lot on like the idea the tradition of the great Texas power pitcher at so. And you know, part of the reason we wrote this now was. Paddock is facing off against Clayton Kershaw. Of course, another great Texan power pitcher tonight at Dodger Stadium. And so I looked at like the best best pictures from Texas and came up with among active pitchers board in Texas. Chris Davis has the fifth best crew era, plus this one spot one spot ahead of Clayton Kershaw. Minimum one inning pitch. Chris davis. Does it all so this? But that's how bad it was like people were thinking, you know, just give them a shot as a as a middle reliever. Just to try to get something out of him for the last few years is contract sale. Better days have arrived. Anyway. Yeah. I couldn't be happier. That Chris Davis's put it all back together and lease for a few weeks. So I mean if nothing else he's not going to be as bad as it was last year. No, so right. He's probably just three weeks of being good is probably enough to clear that very low bar. Yeah. All right. Well, the worst is over and so. Podcast. So thanks for for joining me.

Let's do it because the they have been announced. And we have cy young rookie of the year manager of the year m. b. p. lays gentleman and. Let's start with the cy young award finalists. Those of you don't know the each of these categories will name a winner in the american league and in the national league We have three finalists for each category in each league. So cy young. We've got shane bieber. Kenta maeda and hyun jin reu- in the american league for cy. Young and the national league is trevor. Bauer yu darvish. And jacob degrom. Brad who do you have in the national league winning that competition. Trevor bauer winning in the national league. Because he was. He was on hidden for the entire season like well. I mean i didn't disagree with you. Okay and and here's and this is like the only one. I went on one elaborate on. I know. I know this is a regular season award but his single postseason appearance. He didn't give a run like the end of that game was one to nothing because neither one of those guys gave up a run. That's just how his season went is amazing. Absolutely unreal. your baron. The yeah so you have ale. This one's harder. I gotta give it shane bieber. Why mostly because his one hundred twenty two strikeouts and his one point six three era. Yeah yeah he seemed unhittable this year too. Yeah he will at one point. Six three are a for sure you know like now. He wasn't always available in clutch moments. If i remember right but at the same time like he was unhittable largely all season long. Yeah yeah i do remember the. It seemed like every guy. Every time he went out and pitched the he was setting some kind of new record. Either for the american league. Mlb or even just the indians he was he was lights out all year. It almost feels moot actually surprised that there was anybody else. They're considering besides bieber to be honest with you was yeah surprised. Ah darvish was. And that's how i felt about you. Darvish i think jacob degrom is great and you darvish when he's on is really good but he's not always on you know. Yeah that's that's issue there. Let's let's move onto rookie of the year really quick rookie of the year i know is your is. You're excited about it while you tell so. You have for the american league rookie of the year. Well so give me list them. I said yes. Go ahead luis. Robert and kyle lewis. Honestly i mean. Obviously i i have kyle lewis. I mean he won the the sporting news. Rookie of the year already Which i think is probably a pretty good indicator of how the baseball writers association of america is going to vote but luis robert. He put together a really good year to If you want home runs which. I guess you know is kind of the standard but at the same time collins. I felt like the dude was hitting like five fifty for him for like three weeks. So yeah i think you've gotta give that gives that start a little bit more weight and lose robert the thing about him too though is he's got defensive range for days. They talk about football. They talk about the sideline to sideline defender. The dude is a foulland fallon defender. This year. always still in boston. But i'm going to go with homer is. She's carl lewis. How about you. I choose choosing kyle lewis as well mostly. Because i don't want to make you man. Who do you have in the nationally. We've got alec bahamas. Jake cronin worth and devin williams. Do you have an opinion on this one Not so much is. Because i don't watch a whole lot of nationally baseball because My local team is the national league. And i'll get to watch them But probably honestly go with. Gosh i don't frigging no go jake. Cronin worth The padre padre. He was on. A good team is on the padres less the infield with him and And manny manny. Machado manny machado. I guess it would have been no. It would have been fernando tatis junior but no he's part of a really good infield though colonel worth was so i'd probably yes i agree. Give it to him so solid defense on that team. That's great man but to give it a williams. Yeah why williams. Devin williams yet Twenty seven innings pitched with zero point three three. Era pretty good now. That's a very very small sample size. But if he can push that out over a larger group given the cove it and everything i think maybe he'll get some love on the diminished capability. This year Yeah just because it wasn't his fault necessarily but right that's crazy. Good if he can maintain that that's insane. Yeah also. I like it when pitchers win rookie of the year. I it doesn't happen very often. But i really like it. It the typically. There's a learning curve for pitchers in in the show I like it when a guy can come up with dominate. Think it's cool. Yeah it's different and they have much significantly fewer opportunities to to show what they're worth not like the these position players you know. Yeah so i like that a lot. Cool all right. Who got managed the manager of the year ahead ale. We've got kevin cash. Try on toy and rick renteria. Who actually is out of a job. Currently yep so he got for manager of the year kevin cash. Yeah i'm gonna have to agree with you just because of what the race did this year. But honestly it's almost like the race front office deserves executives of the year. I don't even know who their their. Gm off the top of my head but me neither but because they're so like the way they're put together in the way they operate feel so much like they almost deserve executive of the year. before before. casters manager of the year. Eric neander vice-presidents. Look it up. I was up right now. Yeah vice-president gm is third season and I don't know but out there on the last three seasons have been. There have been there though. Yes yeah that validates your point. How okay. But i don't know the give cash manage the year because he's out there he's out there actually making the decisions during the game getting yelled at by blake's now for taking him out too early so give it a gift that hopefully make that decision. What about what about the national league. Don mattingly david. Ross and j tingler. He got donny. Baseball donny baseball. Absolutely and i think no question about it. I think for the same reason with both of us the fact that they weren't supposed to make the playoffs this year right well. Certainly not the marlins like they were. They were content razi not he was oh and it was out of nowhere and they just started storming yup. Yeah i think. I think honestly it give it a dominating okay the big one break you have to go ahead with the big one k most vulnerable player. Just kidding most valuable player. We've gotten the american league. Jose abreu dj mayhew and jose ramirez. Brad this is tough. I don't think it is who you have. Honestly you don't think it is. I don't think it is either. No i give to mayhew really. Yeah what yeah. Tell me tell me why. All i mean what he led the league he led the al batting. Yeah i don't have his His three sixty four. Yeah i don. I'm on baseball. Reference right now trying to filibuster little bit not doing a very good job. It felt like in the american league. He i feel like he carried his team more. He and luke lugovoi carried that team more than anybody did because they say the best ability is availability and man lemay. He was like the only guy he and luke void. Where the only guys on that team. You stayed healthy and let's see true. Yes so he threw sixty four average three six whereas it. What do i have to eighty one. That's weird that's not right is it. Oh is it. I have three sixty four. That's what i thought. Three sixty four. I don't know. And then i've got a four twenty one. On base percentage with an opium of one point zero one one the fact that his opium was above one. Come on now huge. That's yeah yeah that's plenty. So i don't know now i feel like i feel like he deserves. He had a great year. I mean numbers aside it to me if like every other night. The guy was doing something that he needed to to get. Dallas team win. Okay now that. I agree with now if you take the x factor stuff and you take all of the circumstances around it and if we're not just going to go off paper then yes. Dj lemay who deserves the award for sure but baseball writers. They don't always vote that way. They like the they like the paper. Which is why i think they're going to give it to jose abreu you. Now listen here. i'm gonna back them up a little bit okay. We did not see the white sox being successful. I mean some of us were excited about the white sox. But i don't think we're we were all i. Seeing the white sox be successful as they were and and then when they stopped being successful it was heartbreaking because it was you know when they got into the playoffs and lost it was it was devastating because they were air cooking with gas heat. So here's the line on jose abreu we're looking at on paper He led the al and hits and slugging percentage so seventy six hits six hundred seventeen. Slugging percentage bud sixty. Rbi's the most in the league this season hundred forty eight total bases gained nineteen homers behind luke. Voight for number two luke boy had twenty two so he comes in second with nineteen homers. If you're telling me that guy with those stats didn't do as much for his team as dj hugh your town. Now i agree that. Dj showed up every day. And you can't you like everything we just talked about. But i think there's a case for jose abreu. Yeah and i agree with you on that. I do feel like ultimately the the the white sox. I felt like we're a little more balanced which is weird to say Top at bottom. Yes and so. He had some support in the lineup. But you know that part of that might have been health but the yankees you know. Lee played on a consistent team. But if and yeah if you're going off a guy strict numbers than yeah give the jose abreu but to me. I feel like a guy who can actually do what he needs to do to lift a team like that. I don't know. I always look at a guy most valuable like if if dj lemay who had not been on the yankees they may. They may not have made the playoffs. Jose abreu one hundred percent agree with that. I feel like jose abreu was on a team. That probably wouldn't. It would have made the playoffs anyway. Maybe not where they were but they were. I feel like they have made the playoffs. Still so i like that that. That's how i view. Yeah so that's just well speaking of that. Then go to the national league. Mookie betts freddie freeman manny machado. It's hard that's really hard. I mean i'm not gonna give it to manny machado. I don't feel like he's anywhere near those other. But i agree. I gotta go freddie freeman. Which is i really like monkey. I like him a lot and he may have been like the postseason. Mvp for the dodgers because there were games that they would have lost. He hadn't played the defense that he did and then turn around and then also the contribution that he did Yeah but freddie freeman. He hit three forty one. He had a one point. One zero two opie s played all sixty games off sixty games to lead the lead. The league with twenty three doubles fifty. One runs which i know is dependent on other other guys not be so hit. Thirteen home runs. And that's after coming back from. What a terrible bout with with covert so and fifty three rb ice Yeah and and the fact that he was. He was the leader on that team that went to the playoffs and played. Well they played well He convinced nick marquette's to come back and play who ended up being also an another contributor that team that he was doing more than just on the field. You know which. I know that the intangibles done necessarily go into account for mvp. But i don't know how. I don't know how the braves would've done without him there that he felt like glue kept that team together and lead them to where they got to. What about you. Yeah you said everything. I was going to say give it. I was trying to play devil's advocate for a minute but it just wasn't working absolutely freddie freeman deserves it n- and you're right. Mckee beds was was a formidable force and he probably will get it but Yeah you can't. You cannot say that. Freddie freeman wasn't the most valuable player in the league for the nationally snow way. Yeah and mookie betts again to me. He was just he was just the thing that took the dodgers over the top. I think they would have won the world series this year. Sixty games are one hundred sixty two games he was he was the guy who said. Okay guys this is what we're doing so we need to do to win is what is what i saw it. Yeah so i mean. I would be surprised or upset if he wanted me. Neither but i think freddie freeman juicers it. That's just me. I agree catch new episodes of the baseball together. Podcast every tuesday

"It's Monday the twentieth of July twenty. Twenty I'm Emma, Duncan the economists, Burton editor, welcome to Edison's peaks where you can hear three essential articles from this week's paper read aloud. I'll cover. Story looks at how the West should do business with China tensions have come to a head of Woah. How can Western democracies and authoritarian China maintain their economic links? Next classrooms in a crisis. The risks of keeping schools closed far outweigh the benefits. And, finally reviving Moore's law, and you material helps transistors become vanishingly small. More transistors means more computing power. Stories you're about to hear just a sample of what's in the economist this week with a subscription you can read or listen to all of our journalism case you economists dot com slash podcast offer the best introductory rate. I up, China versus America Trade Without Trust. Nine thousand nine years ago. An unknown Chinese company set up its first European sales offices in a suburb of Frankfurt and an English commuter town and started bidding to build telecoms networks. Today while way symbolizes the daunting rise of China ink and a global trading system in which trust has collapsed. With sales of one hundred twenty three billion dollars, it is known for its razor, sharp prices and dedication to the industrial goals of China's rulers. Since two, thousand, eighteen, America's subjected it to illegal assault, making it a flash POINT IN THE TRADE WAR Now Britain has said that it will block away from its five G. Networks. Other European, countries may follow. But, far from showing the West's resolve, the saga reveals its lack of a coherent strategy. If Open Societies and authoritarian China to keep the economic links and avoid a descent into anarchy. A new trade architecture is needed. America's security chiefs of always worried that Weiwei's equipment was designed to aid spying and would make its customers dependent on subsidized. Chinese, technology. But over one hundred seventy other countries decided the risk swim manageable. Britain, which works closely with America on intelligence, created a cell of cyber experts to monitor always gear in two thousand ten, and later confined it to less sensitive parts of the network. Other countries mirrored this approach. It's offered a middle way between a naive embrace of Chinese state, capitalism and a cold wall. Such a finely balanced judgment has proved untenable. The trump administration has urged the world to ditch waterway and enforced a unilateral embargo on its supplies, preventing sales of some components as well as chips made abroad using American tools. Forced to choose between an ally and supplier. Britain was inevitably drawn to this week's decision. It has become riskier for anyone to do business with a firm uncle. Sam Wants to cripple. Wall way for its part has failed to reassure. Britain cyber experts who have complained that it's buggy. Software is getting harder to monitor ultra reform. It's a peak governance and ownership. Any remaining emotions that China's leaders respect the rule of law when it really matters. have been shuttered by Vince in Hong Kong. The direct cost of ripping hallway out of European networks is tolerable adding less than one percent to Europeans bills, if immortalized over twenty years. Ericsson Nokia to Western. Supplies can ramp up production and new competition may emerges networks come to depend more on software and open standards. The true burden has nothing to do with an Tenny, but stems from the decay of the world trading system. Perhaps a dozen countries might end up banning waterway Germany's sitting on the fence. But it will still be used in much of the emerging world hastening the splintering of the tech industry. Trade relies on common rules, but Britain's decision has been made amid a swirl of lobbying and threats. It is hard to elicit a principle behind it. That can be usefully applied more broadly if the problem is gear made in China then Ericsson Anoxia do that, too. If it is Chinese firms, building systems which connect devices in the case of five G., robots and machines, then similar logic could be applied across digitizing world economy. German cars and phone sold in China a packed with software data and senses. Is China entitled to Ban Them To. This feeds aspiring sense of lawlessness. The average tariff on Sino American trade is twenty percent. Direct Investment flows from China to Europe have dropped by sixty nine percent from the peak in two thousand, sixteen, according to Rhodium a research firm. Other, firms are caught in the crossfire. TIKTOK faces abandoned in India and perhaps America. China plans to impose sanctions on Lockheed. Martin for selling arms to Taiwan. Now that President Donald Trump has ended Hong Kong's special status HSBC. A bank with huge interests. There could be subject to punishment by both China and America. Some Chinese lenders may be banned from dealing in dollars. The logic of the wall way. Ban is one of disengagement and containment. But this will not work if it is applied across the entire relationship. The West's last great authoritarian rival, the Soviet Union was a trade minnow. China accounts for thirteen percent of world exports and eighteen percent of world market capitalization, and is the dominant Economic Force Asia. Instead a new trade regime is needed. That acknowledges China's nature. That is not easy. The. World Trade Organization or WTO which aims to set universal rules. Failed to evolve with the digital economy. Nor was it prepared for President Xi Jinping's drive to increase state and Communist Party influence over private Chinese firms, and those like Wa, which say they are mutually owned by workers. Disillusioned with the WTO the trump administration's negotiators unilaterally tried to wrestle China into liberalizing its economy and cutting subsidies, using the threat of tariffs and embargoes. That has. been a fiasco. So! How should the trade architecture work in an age of mistrust, the goal should be to maximize trade consistent with both sides, strategic security that means fencing off flashpoints such as tech, the generate lots of tension, but a minority of trade. Perhaps a third of Western firms sales to China based on our analysis of Morgan, Stanley's data for example. These. Sectors will request scrutiny and international security certification of the kind Britain tried with Wa way. It may not work. But at least commerce in other areas can flourish. Chinese firms should also be required to accept open governance of their big subsidiaries in the West including local shareholders, foreign directors and managers with real autonomy and disclosures that all help create a degree of independence from the state. This is hard. Multinational, such as Unilever have been doing it for decades. Take talk could be a pioneer. Open societies a stronger when they act in unison. Europe may be tempted to go to loan ending decades of transatlantic cooperation. It at some point soon, if Mr Trump fails to win a second term, America will reinvigorate its alliances because it has been less effective without them. The West cannot fundamentally change China. Or it! But by acting together, it can find a way to do business with an authoritarian state. It mistrusts. Wall, way marked failure to do this. Time to start again. Next time to let children learn. All around the world children's minds are going to waste as covid. Nineteen surged in early April. More than ninety percent of pupils was shut out of school. Since then the number has fallen by one third as many classrooms in Europe and east. Asia have opened, but elsewhere progress is slow. Some American School districts including Los Angeles and San Diego plan to offer only remote learning when their new school year begins, Kenya's government has scrapped the whole year leaving its children idle until January in the Philippines President Rodrigo. Tetteh says he may not let any children return to the classroom until a vaccine is found South Africa has reopened casinos, but only a fraction of classrooms. Many parents are understandably scared covered one thousand nine is new and poorly understood. Schools are big crowded. Small children will not. Social distancing caution is appropriate especially when cases arising, but as we have argued before the benefits of reopening schools usually outweigh the costs. The new corona virus poses a low risk to children. Study suggests that under eighteens are a third to a half less likely to catch the disease, those under ten, according to Bush's figures are a thousand times less likely to die than someone aged between seventy and seventy nine. The evidence suggests they are not especially likely to infect others. In Sweden, staff at nurseries and primary schools, which never closed, were no more likely to catch the virus than those in other jobs. A new study of one and a half, thousand teenage people's and five hundred teachers who had gone back to school in Germany in May found that only naught point six percent had antibodies to the virus less than half the national rate found in other studies. Granted, an outbreak at a secondary school in Israel infected over one hundred and fifty pupils and staff, but with precautions the risk can be minimized. However the costs of missing school are huge. Children learn less and lose. The habit of learning zoom allows e substitute for classrooms, poor children who are less likely to have good Wifi and educated parents full further behind. They're better off peers parents who have nowhere to drop their children struggle to return to work. Mother's by the heavy burden, and so suffer a bigger career setback children out of school, more likely to suffer abuse, malnutrition and poor mental health. School closures are bad enough in rich countries. The harm they do in poor ones is much worse. Perhaps, four hundred and sixty five million children, being offered online classes cannot easily make use of them because they lack an internet connection in parts of Africa and South Asia families are in such dire straits that many parents are urging their children to give up their studies and start work or get married. The longer scholars shut, the more will make this woeful choice. Save the children a charity guesses that nearly ten million could drop out. Most will be goals. Education is the shores path out of poverty, depriving children of it will doom them to poorer shorter less fulfilling lives the World Bank estimates that five months of school closures would cut lifetime earnings for the children who are affected by ten trillion dollars in today's money equivalent to seven percent of current annual GDP. With such catastrophic potential losses, governments should be working out how to reopen schools. As soon as it is safe, the should not be a partisan issue as it has sadly become an America where some people shoe. It is a bad idea, simply because President Donald. Trump proposes it in countries, teachers unions have been obstructive partly out of justified concern for public health as cases climb, but also because teachers interests, not the same as children's especially if they're being paid whether they work or not, the main union in Los, Angeles urges that schools remain closed until a long wish, list of demands has been met including the elusive dream of universal healthcare in America, children cannot wait that long. Places that have restarted schooling such as France Denmark China and New Zealand off tips for minimizing the risks they let the most vulnerable teachers stay at home. They commonly reduced class sizes. Even though that meant many children could spend only part of the week with their teachers, they stagger timetables to prevent crowding in corridors at school, Gates and halls. They required or encouraged mosques. They boosted school based testing and tracing the Centers for disease, control and Prevention has used these tour up Soba guidelines which include measures such as separating desks by six feet. They're the vice president. This Week said that schools should feel free to ignore them. European countries waited on average about thirty days after infections had peaked before they resume some presence at school. Having started this way, many have since relaxed the rules to let. Most pupils return to school at the same time. There is no known experience of schools reopening in places where the virus was as prevalent as it is now in Arizona Florida or Texas such places. We'll have to bring the virus under control before the new term begins. This probably means that not children will be able to go back fulltime even. But a few days a week with a teacher, a better than none and as in Europe schools can open up more as cove nineteen receipts. The tradeoffs in the global south or even harder, only a quarter of schools in the poorest countries have soap and running water for handwashing. However, schools in such places are also where pupils are often fed and vaccinated closing them makes children more vulnerable to hunger and measles, and this risk almost certainly outweighs that of covid nineteen. The prudent course for poor country governments is therefore to act boldly face-down unions and reopen schools conduct loud re enrollment campaigns aimed especially at girls offer small cash, transfers or gifts, such as masks or pens to ease parents worries about the costs of getting that offspring back to class. Reopening the world school safely will not be cheap. Besides billions of bottles of hand sanitizer, it will require careful organization, flexible schedules and assistance for those who have fallen behind to catch up. It will cost taxpayers money, but taxpayers are often parents to. Rich countries should help poor ones with some of the costs steep. These will be they are nothing like the costs of letting the largest generation in human history grow up in ignorance. And finally the incredible shrinking machine. There is an old joke. In the semiconductor business that the number of people predicting the death of Moore's law doubles every two years. This refers to another prediction made in the nineteen seventies by Gordon Moore one of the founders of Intel a giant chipmaker that the number of transistors which can be crammed onto a silicon chip doubles every two years. When that number exceeded one million in the mid nineteen eighties, some said the rate of progress had to slow down. By two thousand and five, the number of transistors on a chip rose above one billion, which many thought was unsustainable, but there are now around fifty billion transistors, jostling for space on some chips and produces a gunning for more. In the current state of the art, the smallest components transistors diodes made on a silicon chip are about seven nanometers that's billionths of a meter across. That is a thousandth of the diameter of a red blood cell. But problems amounting as components shrink electrons start to leak from the connections between them causing interference and unreliability. The prophets of doom of therefore returned once again. However, they looked like being wrong. The answer to the electron leakage problem is better insulation between chip components and a group of researchers in South Korea and Britian think they have the insulator required. It is called thin film, Amorphous Boron night-ride or Bien. The back story of this material is intriguing. Boron and nitrogen lie on either side of carbon in the periodic Table One consequence of which is that materials composed of equal numbers of Boron and nitrogen. Crystallize in the same way that common does. There are in other words Boron Nitrite, equivalents of dominance and graphite. There, are also bore nitrite versions of the tiny arrangements of combinations known as fullerenes and nanotubes. So it was no surprise after the creation in two thousand and four of yet another hour trip of Carbon Graphene, which consists of single layers of atoms arranged in a hexagonal grid like honeycomb that it had a boron nitrite analog. This has come to be known colloquially as white graphene. Start with white graphing was an also ran in the new field of two dimensional materials, as these sheets of atoms are often called. Real graphing, being incredibly strong and able to conduct heat and electricity extremely efficiently was quoted as a wonder material that might one day be used to make transistors much smaller and faster than the silicon based variety, and thus keep Moore's law taking over, but for this purpose real graphing has a problem that is the obverse of its wonderfulness. It has no band gap. Materials Band gap is a measure of the energy required for an electron to flow through it. A narrow band. Means that material is a conductor? A Wide Band gap makes it an insulator. graphene spanned gap of zero, which has most unusual mix it a very good conductor indeed, but to be a semiconductor, the type of material for Mitch Transistors are fabricated requires a goldilocks band gap that lies between the two extremes neither too narrow nor too wide. Various methods of tinkering have produced versions of graphing which possess this fairytale property, but transistors made with them a so far confined to the laboratory. Studying graphing and its analogues has though the technologists, a huge amount of experience in the field of two dimensional materials, and that is where Burra night-ride comes in, though no uses a semiconductor, it has a band gap wide enough to make it an extremely good insulator. It does looks a suitable material at least in principle to deal with the problem of electron leakage. Among the firm's attempting to develop graphene transistors is Samsung a giant South Korean electronics, group. It's researchers have not however neglected Boron night-ride, one of them Hyun, Jin Shing, working in collaboration with Hyun Suk Shin, no relation of the National Institute of Science and Technology in South Korea, and Manetiua of the University of Cambridge in Britain has come up with a form of thin film Boron, night-ride that lacks the regular hexagonal structure of standard white graphene, hence the description amorphous. Crucially the way this substances made may permit the integration of Boron Nitrite into the standard making process. Thin film materials are usually created by process, called Chemical, vapor, deposition or CV. And Abe is no exception. The technique as its name suggests involves vaporizing the material in question or chemicals that will react together to make it, and then depositing the results on a substrate. In the case of microelectronics, this substrate is usually a wafer of silicon. In general for two dimensional materials, such as graphene and white graphing CD has to be done at above seven hundred degrees, Celsius. This is too hot for existing FABS, but with thin-film Abyan on Jinshan says the temperature can be turned down as low as four hundred degrees Celsius. That lower temperature should allow the material to be deposited directly onto silicon wafers and other substrates without having to retool the multibillion dollar factories known as FABS in which computer chips are made. This she believes means thin-film Abyan could be commercialized for making much faster than other two dimensional materials. The new amorphous films, a thicker than standard white graphing, but only slightly so at three nanometers there will within the size range needed to form part of the next skeptic, busting generation of components they're also thermally mechanically and electrically stable, and they preserve white graphene, wide band gap, and thus its insulating properties. And their fab. Friendliness into the calculation and their future looks bright with luck. Then the Moore's law nee says have been outmaneuvered again.

"This is episode three of Cryptos. And today we're going to try something different interest. Jump Straight to the episode. Just WanNa thanks Jonathan winstead and everyone who has gone on Sunday to join us live event. If you've missed it and we'd like to attend the next one feel free to meet the numbers in Charlotte. Don't forget this scribe and leave a review on Apple podcast and share your thoughts with on social media at Gupta Z podcast episode three the discovery of monsters. Do you see that silver over that Ridge by the waterfall to creatures male and female just like we thought should approach slowly. Try to make contact now not yet god this magnificent wide forehead white hair like they came from another planet. They were here. I maybe. Where the aliens I that they would look animals. Tom Hybrid between man and APE. So much like us. I us but it's very different to. They can withstand the extremes if this climate unlike so many other animals really think they're going to survive our current extinction event. It depends the permian mass extinction killed nine out of every ten lifeforms on the planet only five percents of sea creatures survived who only one third of animals on the land lived. I think the iceman have a good shot. That's exactly why we must understand. We can study how they have adapted and what makes them indestructible we must take samples and sequence that DNA. Not JUST ONE. But every member of the tribe believe there are more anymore. There wasn't again going into the case here and so I mean we can't no you can't leave now. This is not how it's supposed to happen. Stay low it's not the right moment. We call go to your desk in London anymore. Things don't work by here. You don't understand the something you need to know. Now is our chance. The only one and I'm going to miss it. They white please bright. He didn't hand me. He kept running. I followed him knowing that it was foolhardy to approach them like that with the next thing. I knew we will be on the waterfall. Walking through a long narrow located of caves right tried to stay hidden but it was too late. They knew we would have that. Sense of smell is far superior to ask their hearing. I'm setting head boots on. The Rock had the scratching of our jackets had a whisper. Perhaps from the very beginning pink floyd they were allowing us to follow them. All came rushing back to me. I was fifteen years old again. Ankle throbbing the Big Blue Sky stretched overhead as the creature held out his hand. All the sensations I experienced as a child had never really left pay all the wonder and fascination I felt about the iceman remained but layered over these feelings. When you want fear and wariness and Tara emotions that come to me after my encounter with the iceman accumulating in my heart. Every time I thought of all the terrible things that happened that day when the iceman lifted me and took me into the trees finding myself arrogance across to the I began to tremble with fear and horror hottest. Never believed I would see the iceman again. I was sure I would survive in the second time shock arcade white at the goat. We'll follow God. What some kind of an opening in the Granite Crack Slip through. It must be a passage. The only way the only way out had ended the was taken by the ice man. I did all the things Jane silver used to I went to school. I perfected my piano lessons. I trained with my ski club on the outside. I looked exactly the same as I always had. Something deep inside of me shifted. I know trusted other people. I know no good trusted reality. I understood that the world could twist into a dark black amaze one that would lock you inside it as you struggle to find your way. I was born in London. Too ambitious errands expected that I would achieve as much as they had. My father was a geneticist. And My mother us who played with a number of symphonies throughout your. She was away often sometimes months at a time. The extreme weather was still shocking. Then and humanity was learning how to cope hovercrafts and other transport would being designed but most people simply didn't travel. My mother was terrified as the wind. Preferred to stay indoors waiting for the Red Day of Sunlight with rain or snow falling almost three hundred days a year. I saw her very little cell. We close despite our absences and I loved her daily. She loved playing the cello for the sake of can needed little else to make her happy. I sometimes believed that challenge with it's hard wooden spine is all the propped up against the world. I used to think I was like her but I wasn't. I played the piano but I was competitive to the core began winning piano recitals left and right until my father rightly realized that. I didn't give a damn about the instrument itself and that my drive to play came from a desire to win pure and simple. I was only five years old but already could feel the quicksilver and my blood my need to master and overcome those around me and so he redirected me from music to competitive skiing still. I loved music and he is later. After the incident in the Alps. It helps to me. That is what my parents called it. And that is what my therapists don't say a called it as well. The incident from that point of view I lost on a mountain and suffered from exposure to the elements. When they found me I was asleep on the outcropping of rock. My uncle was swollen and there was nothing other than some minor. Cut some bruises. I was fine so it seemed the real damage was not so easy to detect began inside me growing fairies. We'd I new. My parents wouldn't believe and so I never told them about my encounter with the ICEMAN. I determined to keep it secret and nothing can to yourself like a secret. If we don't go now we may not get another chance if you follow them. You may never come back. I'm not afraid of them. You don't know what they can do to you talking about like get inside your mind. They twist everything around. You feel crazy. They hurt you but then they make you better. He wants to leave. But but you won't. He'll hey look you stay here if you need to. But I'm not gonNA miss this chance. There was so much happening in my mind so many memories rushing back to me. I could hardly breathe. I had the sound of the creatures voice the way it felt to be lifted his arms and carried off into the evergreen trees. I remembered my Tara as he took me through the dark of caves through the Fisher in the granite and into the bright light of the village. I remember the smell of the creature skin that strong feral musk of sweat mixed with the sense of his wet hair and I remembered how my heartbeat with fear but with something more than that to exhilaration and one day amazement the incredible nature of the world joy that I was to see it. Stay here. Don't move. I'll come back for you but I couldn't move. Seeing the creatures again had triggered something in me that I hadn't felt in years a what Tara pounding through my body dreads heat into the atmosphere SA- fusing the freezing. Add teeth of ice hanging from the caves. The snow drifting from the sky and though I trembled with fear at what waited on the other side of the passage. I couldn't turn and run away. I had waited too long to find them. I had struggled to with the trauma of my childhood encounter with the ICEMAN DOUBTED. My memories my sanity my ability to understand the truth. Give up the head when it mattered. The most and so I pulled myself up pushed aside my Tara and follow agent. Bright into the cave bright. Wait I'm coming with you. I knew you'd come through. I'm coming but there's something you need to know first about them. You are not all prepared for what you'll find beyond that wall. I never thought there was something that one could prepare for. He should know that there is something about them. They're even if we don't have time for a research report agent silver. We need to move now. That probably already gone. Come on and with that agent bright slip through the narrow fissure in the rock. This I waited on me a moment. My heart beating like mad and then I followed agent. Bright pushing myself against the rock of the passage. It was dammed. The granite weeping with moisture and soon at deep penetrating chill descended upon me. I saw agent bright ahead and wished that he had listened to my warning. What awaited him on? The other side of the passage was more dangerous and more terrifying than what he imagined. Waiting on the other side of the passage had haunted me myself my life. I returned home from the Alps. Nothing was the same secret world of the ICEMAN lift inside me. Helsing a second heart. I could not exist as I had before. The human world had become strange and terrifying and so my parents brought me to doctors. Say from the age of fifteen to seventeen. I worked with how to understand what happened in the mountains. I didn't know at the time. Is that doctors say ahead. Recorded some of our sessions along with her personal reflections of my condition. All Talk Man. I lost session that the nightmares for turned don't phase voice chilled me nearly forgotten all of those hours with her. But when I heard the tape everything rushed back to me. I listened breathless trying to piece together. What had happened to the girl I had once been. They have not actually stopped. Can you describe them? It's always the same dream. I'm on the mountain pass. The ski accident took place. The six extension had killed everything. The buds the animals even the insects. But in my dream it godfather the trees died. I was the only form of life on a dead planet and then shadow fellow for me. Is it the monster? I don't know I believe he will see more if you try to describe it. I can't just to shudder what Phil when you see. The shadow angry. I wouldn't speak icon. Are you able to sleep after you have this dream? Never the creation of a fictional world is one of the minds most elaborate methods of soil protection. I find Jane's arming mechanisms especially complex. There is a wound around this wound. She led tail fabulous. When I tried to uncover the source of INFORMA- However Chicago reveal it. I don't think he means anything. But what is clearly the night Ariza symptom of a deeper trauma? I mean most likely the terror you felt it being lost in the mountains. He's not a symbol or symptom of something. He is real. Okay tell me more. Do you believe he real yes. They accord iceman go. They're human beings like us the with characteristics different from us. The heads of large have enormous bureau is and a heavy Brown. The skin is so that they appeared cut from the ice. Do you know anyone in your real life. Looks that way there. No one else in the entire world. That looks like the ICEMAN Rick. By week we depend the fantasy world of the ICEMAN. James Silva is beginning to trust me with each session. We move close to the heart of the matter. What Trauma Jane? Silver suffered to create such an assistant imaginary Lacuna. What was happened to unravel it to? As in previous sessions Jane Silber returns the place. She caused the village of the ice men. It's an elaborate fictional universe one so fully imagined that I cannot help but believe she spends many hours than her mind as it turns out there are many. I spent fifty or so forming a self sufficient tribe. Jane explained that they live together. In a crevice. Deep in the mountains she describes this spinach with details both precise and particular there stone huts with granite tiled roofs birchwood bows used to eat roasted meat hard palate upon which she slept there. A ritual such as food gathering eating and bathing. She claims to have participated in. It's quite amazing. The scope of her imagination. I have never encountered this variety of delusion before among those who were born after the extinction event young men and women who have never seen animals never heard a bird sing never tasted meat fish or cheese or milk and yet I must confess her. Descriptions are extraordinarily vivid. Something happened to me something. I can't recall. There's something I want to know about the ICEMAN Jane. Would you classify him as a human being? What else. I'm not sure an ape some form of animal. You might have seen in the mountains human. Stephanie Hyun Jin Sober. Has a strong steady cartoon does not cry often when she does it seems she cries all the suffering the world in her heart. She is inconsolable. Then she strips his spine arising goes on as if nothing happened. I must've again. Do you think they are real? I don't know they seem so. They seem very real to me. Indeed no that Jane Silva's physical presence alters. When she speaks about the iceman she arrives at my office with a look of a girl way. Down by anxiety and depression posters stooped to the expression withdrawn. She rarely makes eye contact until police this week so that I must ask her to repeat herself. When she speaks of the iceman she transforms she becomes vibrant bowl showing me the James Silver that exists underneath the depression. It happened suddenly without warning. We're talking about methods of managing her anxiety when she said a name. Oma was your main contact with the creatures I found me a took me to the village of the iceman who protected me from the others when they tried to harm me. Why were you afraid of the other? Iceman I'm not omo his different. He was kind I. I don't know where this is meeting but I believe that. Omo is the key to understanding what might have happened to. You was my friend. Is it possible? Owner is not a fantastic creature from a tribe of mythological men but a person a real person passing close to you who pose a threat. Is it possible that you suffered delusions about the ICEMAN delusions? Talk to say. I was the only person I trusted to tell the truth about the creatures and she believed. I was delusional. I guess it was only to be expected. I had experienced something. I could not understand something so dark and terrifying that it overwhelmed me. Perhaps I was mad as many of the survivors of the extinction event. All is it a wonder cut off from the natural world. Living our lives in protective gear behind thick glass. We've lost everything that tied us to the natural world to them might have recognized this instead. She took a radically different direction. She began to question me about my parents. She wanted to know details about their behavior toward me and my feelings about them she requested. My medical records was particularly interested in the physical examinations. That occurred to stop two incidents in the Alps. She listened and observed all the wild forming theories about what had really happened to me at the time. I didn't understand what she was doing. I didn't realize that she had the power to tear my life apart. By the time I understood it was to thank you for listening and I hope you enjoyed this episode. If you'd like to hear episode four before everyone else feel free to join me and the cast and creative team on Sunday at four thirty eastern time just makes me at six four six two nine three four to three. You can also visit our website. Fiend up media. If you'd like to help others finace subscribe to Apple podcasts. And leave a review but nothing will replace your recommendation.

Scoreboard for Wednesday, October third, twenty. Eighteen coming up a thriller in the NFL wildcard, the AL wildcard, combatants get ready to go and the twins, reassign a hall of Famer. Let's get to it. The first pitch. At Wrigley field, the Rockies and the cubs in the NFL wildcard game. And boy, this was a classic at ended up going thirteen innings. But in the first it looked like the Rockies would take control very early on swinging a line drive base it the left center field and this ball's gonna get to the Ivy. It will stick in the Ivy and Kris Bryant immediately puts his hands up in the air as if to say, I can't find it and it disappeared into the Ivy a rocket off the bat of a LeMay, Hugh, he's at third base, but he's going to go have to go back to second. And now it looks like the home plate empire. Chris Guccione is calling black Minna back and he's going to send him back to third base, the great Dan showman with that call on ESPN radio. Yes. So a ground rule double for DJ LeMay, Hugh and the Rockies quickly capitalized, knowing Aaron auto at the plate later in the inning Leicester's first pitch swing and a high. Fly ball to pretty deep right center field. Now more attracting it back. He will make the catch tagging and storing his Blackman tagging and coming to third is LeMay Hugh and the rocky strike early with a one to nothing lead here in the first. So the Rockies getting an early run off of John Lester, but lesser would not let it get out of hand. He quickly shut down that rally and was rolling through five, three to swing. He got out a puppet a fist road Wester as he comes off now nine strikeouts at all nine ks for LeicesteR at that point through five innings, but he was desperately looking for some run support from his guys. Anthony Rizzo had a chance in the sixth inning. First pitch for previous winging ground auto, second, LeMay Mayhew to story and back to Desmond. At I four at inning ending double play, Rizzo hit it on the screws, but he hit it right to DJ LeMay Hugh the Rockies. Turn to and and the any. So it was still one to nothing Colorado in the sixth, the cubs threatened again in the seventh, but Trevor story flashed some leather to save a run, but pitch and swing at a dynamic patch at short by Trevor story, diving headlong new, his right to make a sensational catch for the second out back to I is hell, Maura. The bases were loaded later on in the seventh. And once again, the Rockies were able to get out of a jam to choose swing in this got him with a fastball doubted away at auto vino gets out of the jam. The cubs will leave overloaded and a rocky still lead wanted nothing now with the end of seven. So the frustration was building for the cops, but Chicago's pitching staff was able to contain the Rockies. The score was still one to nothing into the bottom of the eighth inning. When. Finally, Chicago broke through. Thanks to a big hit from who else? Havi bias shoe. Any switch. The left center pace back door will put an score bias, not his way to second dives in I in this game is time. So was tied one to one in the eighth exactly what the cubs needed you thought. Maybe that would be the turning point and they would run away with this one. Not so much one to one in the eighth one to one in the ninth tenth, eleventh. Twelfth. Finally, in the thirteenth, it was the Rockies not the cubs who tacked on a second run. Thanks to Tony Walters, ground ball base, and to center field story comes into score pyro around third and the Rockies have taken a two to one lead. So it was two to one in the bottom of the thirteenth. The cubs had one more chance to try and tie it up, but they couldn't do it. Here's how it sounded Dan Schulman at the Mike and the Otsu on the way swing in amiss. He got him. What a job by Oberg, a relief and the Rockies have won the wildcard game. They come to Chicago and they beat the cubs one sending the cups home for the winter and the Rockies are headed about ninety miles north to start the division series. Thursday on improbable, win for the Rockies. At Wrigley field, they win the NFL wildcard, Tony Walters, got that big hit. And after the game, he spoke with BUSTER, Tony Walters, just hits your name at baseball. History added that feel pretty good team been grinded working. Our tails off did a great job getting this went walk through that at bat, especially fell behind now was looking out over trying to get something put in the outfield. About the pitch change up the middle cookery host, good feeling, hey, how did you guys sort of survive that? Is that game goes along, you lose the lead in the eighth inning and then zero after zero after zero, what was the mood in the bench? You know, the mood of events that we didn't give up. We have wears on a SIEM would make comeback wins all time this year. You know something that wasn't new to us. So we're used to coming back here in a win win for us in the Rockies who's going to keep on doing it moving forward, how dangerous is this team? It's dangerous. Esther shirts, feel bad for the move back there, but should have caught that piss little quick when there, but this dangerous, Tony. Thanks back to you. Thanks BUSTER. You wanna talk about an improbable hero in this one, Tony Walters. It was his first hit since September tenth. He hit just one seventy this regular season and one twenty two on the road. Owed it was his first road hit since August twenty. Seventh incredible equally as dominant as Walters in that plate appearance was Kyle Freeland. He was money in this game. He went six two thirds giving up just four hits, scattering them. Nowhere runs and six days after the game. He also spoke with BUSTER. What was that like? Combat. Oh my gosh. Now it had to be that way, right? You know, all those innings that fight bowl teams shopping at the bitch on and do anything that can. It was a whole lot of fun to tell me about Tony Walters, reaction him being the hero tonight, Tony takeover. That's what we've been calling him wherever he comes out clutch for us has been great. You know, down account, oh, to get the base knock like that to bring in the go ahead run. It was great. Y'all, especially off the bench like that. Not seeing any fishers facing pitches for four over four hours. So I mean, it was incredible about Tony. Tell me about your emotions is that's going along is is an up and down ride on whenever we have guys in scoring physician, you're doing wherever you can't help them out in, you know, chairman to to get him to score and when it doesn't happen, you're you kind of feel deflated, but you've got to keep riding, you got to keep going. And that's what we muster also had a chance to catch up with. Nolan are an auto. Play in that game? Oh, man, it was awesome. We actually got a lot of fun. I mean, it was intense guy a little nerve wracking, but we we were confident we, we knew there was a chance, but listen as a good team over there. They, they pitch us, Tom Lester after that, I was really good kilometers and a good job Hendrix. Did a good job. Just Tony was able to put this on the ball by this happened. I'm happy we won after they tied the score and one all how did you guys all together at that point? Oh, man. I mean. It was tough. You know, by listening is hit one of the best pitchers in the game. You know, you gotta give credit, had a good about there, but you know, we knew that the game is still tied. They're still chance to win. You know, when they weren't scoring, we knew that, hey, we're still in this. So guys had quality, a bath there the last inning. And that's why we one describe your motions with Tony gets that head. Oh, man. I'm so happy for her know it's been a grind this season. You know. I know he hasn't played the way he's wanted, but he can. He works hard man. This guy works hard. He cares for everyone and he didn't start today, and that's not easy to come in a game and come up with a big hit. And I was unbelievable. We're all happy from described that plane. That was so unusual. We're hobby grab you gave you the, oh yeah, you know, I don't know what happened there. I should have done like an one basketball player may. Well, we've got a double play out of it, but no, it was just friendly man. It was just he knew he was out, but it was all friendly, man. We're having a good time both teams. We have a lot of respect for what are you see this team moving forward? It's going to be a battle. We understand that the brewers are really good team, but we're more than prepared. We're, we're excited for the opportunity. We're here now. Now we got through the wildcard which last year we didn't. So we're more than prepared. On the other side, the cubs see the season ended in bitter disappointment. Of course, they lost that wildcard game in addition to the game against the brewers, which could have clinched the division for them. Both losses coming at home, a tough way to end the season. Joe Madden spoke with the media about the disappointment after the game. Joe, how much of this game was kind of a microcosm of the way things have gone for you guys offensively you ring pretty well and runs this year, but you had so many games reaches couldn't get the big hit in zero. One run. Yeah, that's we played that game. A lot believe me was on on my mind for a large part of it. We had some opportunities we just cannot cash in. I mean, they pitched really well too, but we need to figure that out in the off season neck spring training. As my buddy, Dave wills would say, we left too much chicken on the bone right there. We've had plenty of opportunities and I'm not here to denigrate anybody are works, put in Hayes in barn. Everybody cares. It just didn't play out this way. Offensively we caught the ball. We pitch really, really well. Like I said, the esprit de Cora can ask remorse owes this something we really have to focus on during the off season front row in the right along those lines with the last two home games, playoff games to grind. So are you shocked by that? Well, I mean, like we just talked about it. It's it's happened. Kevin's happened. We've we've been in that we put ourselves in that position often even Ila the games against the pirates to get to this point. We didn't score a whole lot. Then we fly came back and won two. We've had a series this year what we've scored. Well, how many times are we score in Pittsburgh won one per game in a four game series and one two of them, you know? So that's it's we, we've been fighting with this and I. I wanna believe in. I do believe that you're gonna see a lot of these guys rebound more offensively next because they're very talented and they're young and they're not hurt to me. It's like an age issue normally, and it's also an injury issue, but we're not. We're not injured and we're not old. So I really am -ticipant nice rebound so of course, the tough way to end the season for the cubs, Joe Madden seems optimistic about the future. But of course, we've heard rumors that he might not be there to enjoy. Sure. BUSTER will get into that on the baseball tonight podcast with boob Shabi coming up later this morning, John Lester did his part for the cubs. He was great, six innings, four hits one earned run and those nine ks, but he was not afraid to let his emotions fly. After this game, we have a guy that's potentially going to win the MVP and he's in tears right now, you know, like you guys just give and really care about us winning regardless of their stats or garland of anything else. And I feel that that's what makes us. A unique group obviously didn't work out tonight. You know, that happens. So. I don't think. We beat ourselves, they beat us. And sometimes that happens. I love our guys. I love our competitiveness. I love our grind, love everything that these guys do, what they bring. There's not a group of guys that I wouldn't take into another one game playoff tomorrow. Then the in in this group and. I would like to think we would win it. In the American League, their wildcard game later on tonight on ESPN radio, the as visiting the Yankees. Oakland has named Liam Hendriks as its opener while the Yankees will star Luis Severino Hendrix was all in one with a four point one, three ERA in twenty five appearances this year, including Owen one and a two point. Oh eight era in September starts of one and two thirds innings or less. Meanwhile Severino won his last two starts of the regular season and went nineteen and eight with a three point, three, nine ERA and two hundred twenty ks on the year. Bob Melvin spoke with the media about why Hendrix will be his opener and how the rest of the rotation will play out. LIAM's done a pretty good job obviously with the role that we've thrust upon them, what is it? Seven, six or seven times or something now, so makes sense to start him as far as after that, you know, there are a lot of. Moving parts. So I can tell you, we'll have eleven pitchers. We'll have fourteen position players how it's going to go after Liam, we're still kind of deciding who maybe the last guy on the eleven pitchers. So I'll probably withhold that at this point you do have a couple of starters, inner clubhouse right now, is there possibility one of could come in second or is it more likely that you would go? Don't know yet still, that's one of the things that we're discussing right now, but there will be at least one starter on the on. The pitching portion of it Melvin went on to talk about how Hendrix is minor league experience will actually help them in this game. I think it was a big wake up call for them because he hadn't been in that position for quite a while and used his time wisely in AAA and started on a long, long tossing program which brought his velocity backed where we, we've seen it at times in the past and and maybe I, you know, you better question for him. Maybe a little more focused in what he's doing now and you know the results speak for themselves. So. So it's been nice to see a guy that was in that position to come back and have the type of success. He has that for us Hendrix, shared his thoughts on being the opener for the AL wildcard is same as any other game. I'm taking it the same way. We'll me out the same as I do try to keep it as much as a relief appearances I can Nola means is I'm just relieving in the first inning. There's no difference in the game. I was see. It's a dual dia, but to everybody out there, it's just same straight. Same strike zone. Same guys in the box. Just going to go out there and do it and say, oh goes, he talked about his experience pitching against the Yankees. That'll be interesting because I'm not sure who they're gonna throw up. I mean, were they had a couple of injuries, then the lineup is going to be a little different. Maine, it's just the same as any other team face guys and whoever comes up comes up and then the guys have to get. I mean, it doesn't doesn't really bother me too much who's going to be up with our did it against him before because every games different, obviously, new bowl pod, different different settings and everything like this. But MRs same, I gotta get gotta get as many as I can, whether it be. I mean, I'm trying to. I'm trying to go for six innings. Get a quality start at the Senate over the bullpen, but we'll see. I guess some tells me that's not going to happen, but we'll have to wait and see Hendrix. Also discussed his preparation for the game got told at ten fifty eight through text message. So it comes agent was brief, but I had kind of thought about it a little bit. It was one of those things it's like, I'm, they'll that had been a bunch of stuff eluding to it, but so it's one of those things where it's like, I'm kind of out preparing to be, but I was also preparing not to be. It's all just setting myself up. I was in trying to do anything any different. Like I did the same thing. I would normally do if I was relieving yesterday, walked around the city went to the met so bad it trying to shut it all this. Just the same as every other game to me. Just going out there. I'm relieving in the first inning instead of the sixth, seventh, eighth, though, taking from him in the ninth just because I want to Blake training, talked about the confidence that Oakland has in studying the numbers. We have guys in the front office that do a lot of research to put us invest best situations for success. And I think it's our job to put some faith in them and we, we've got the arms to make this make sense. Yankees manager, Aaron, Boone talked about why he chose Luis Severino over someone like Jay Hatton, who busters suggested. First of all, everything goes into the decision. You know, I mean, performance experience, stuff opponent all those things. You know, all of it goes into people's input. But I just felt really comfortable going with sevi- boon continued to discuss the confidence that he has in Severino. He's uniquely positioned as a young man in this game that has experienced a lot. And I think he's very quick to handle. All that goes with with this game. You know, I've talked about him a lot and you know, he's, he's dealt with massive success. He's dealt with struggles. He's dealt with going to the bullpen. You know, he's dealt with with things this year as far as having the kind of first half he did, and then going through a few weeks stretch there where where he struggled on the mound. So I think he's a quipped in so many ways to handle this and perhaps most importantly, he's a quipped with amazing stuff and the ability to dominate big league hitters because he's such a talented pitcher. And again, I can't wait to see him. Go do it. Everyone's been talking about the perception of pressure that's on the Yankees. Buni addressed that when you put this uniform on that goes with the territory. And again, I've you that pressure as a privilege and we'll all embrace that and look to apply that to to our opponent. And yeah, we, we've had a great. Season to this point, but that's now behind us and the real season starts. Now, our guys will be ready and I look forward to watching them go out and do their thing tomorrow night Luis Severino struggled last year in this spot recording only one out against the twins in the wildcard game a year ago. He talked about those struggles, you know, maybe two aside to, you know, trying to do too much. You know, the good thing was we want, you know, one gang and we'll move on and do a better job, but he has. I think that was the main thing you know, trying to. We, I was decided, you know, what's I to spin is now what Tate that tomorrow and try to read that game like are you know to game. Giancarlo. Stanton was also speaking to the media, and he discussed his thoughts on playing the athletes in the wildcard game. I think they're tired of of getting beat up by the froze for a couple years and maybe some other guys in our league, but they're hungry. They got a the fight in the guys they they've built. And yeah, the the coming in to fight. Once again, you can catch that game the as visiting the Yankees tonight on ESPN radio and the ESPN app elsewhere around the majors. The twins announced that Paul Molitor won't return as manager next season, but has been offered a position in a baseball operations capacity, Derek follow v and fad Levin members of the twins front office, disgust monitors reassignment. We've talked about the role in a more substantive baseball operations role. Probably initially, at least around around some things in player development. Some things he loves to do in terms of teaching young kids and players the potential for him impacting us around just big picture decisions. I wouldn't because of who Paul is because of the way he's handled this because the respect I after him and the way our relationship has developed over the last couple of years. I wouldn't necessarily find that to be a problem. And I think with respect to the major league environment, think it would only be fair and the certainly in the short term anyway to maybe have some disconnect from that environment in that role. They also discussed Johm hours future with the organization. I think Joe, Joe was one of the first people actually reached out today and just had a chance to chat with them. And I, I think he's intent on taking some time and thinking about what is right for him by what interests bay. We'll have multiple conversations during the course of this off season, whether it's in a plane capacity moving forward or the opportunity to come help us out in some in some way, shape or form here with the twins. Finally, the dodgers have announced Hyun Jin Ryu will be there starter for game. One of the NFL DS Clayton Kershaw. We'll start game too. Thanks for listening to the baseball tonight.

"Great news. There's a quick way you can save money, switch to Geico Geico could help you get great coverage at a great price, and it only takes fifteen minutes to see if you could save fifteen percent or more on car insurance go to Geico dot com today and see how much you could save Doria male, ESPN radio one hour to go. We'll take you up to ten o'clock eastern time, and then you're gonna listen to college game day from Pullman, a Washington. Say the crowd as expected looks insane, and they are fired up energize ready to go Washington state Oregon. I ever college game day at Washington state university Melman. The greatest thing in sports period. The single greatest thing, what am I talking about? And he seventh game, yeah, any seven km any winner. Take all game right winner. Take all loser. Go home. That's what you got game seven tonight. Eight o'clock eastern time, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Brewers dodgers is the brewers hammered LA. They got all over Hyun Jin Ryu early yesterday and they went onto a seven, two win, and really the key for the brewers. They got to save Josh hater who are going to see for two innings, three innings who knows how long he can go tonight. Craig counsel loves him and he should. He's the best reliever at all in baseball. If you ask me electric stuff, dodgers can't touch him. Let's go to Milwaukee. Pedro Gomez is hanging out with us this morning, and it's good to have you with us. Pedro, the they're thrown Yuli Chacin who has not given up a run in the postseason. They've got Josh hater, waiting in the wings they are at home. Is there any particular reason people. Did not love Milwaukee tonight and game seven. I mean, it's it's. They've got everything lined up for themselves. Tonight. There's there's no doubt that you know, Craig counsel has has a really, really strong bullpen tonight, of course. You know, Dave Roberts saved his three best relievers as well. He did not use them last night probably because they fell behind so quickly, and he decided I'm not gonna touch patriot Baya's. I'm not gonna touch Kevin Jansen Ryan Madson. He was able to save his three best relievers as well. It's it's, it's lined up to be a really, really great game. But I, I would say that the the brewers might have an edge because their bullpen is so so strong and has been so strong. And you know, Josh ater it, the thing is, I know people are saying he's three, maybe four. He's probably only going to go to in a in a in a in a situation where he is out there for a third that might not be the best thing for the brewers when he went three innings. The other day earlier in the series. The third inning was not nearly as strong. The velocity came down and the contact went up. So I doubt that we see him for a third, any petro gimme a player in this game for either team. That's we're not talking enough about that. Nobody's talking enough about the could make a big difference in game seven. You know, look, we're we're. We haven't talked a lot about Christian yelich because he has not had a great series. He's not an under the radar guy, but every time he steps in the play, it's almost like you're just saying this is that he's gonna break out right here and he has not. And that's that's the guy to me that that could absolutely go to for three with a double Homer and four guys, and you're just waiting for it to happen. I think I think he's guy Pedro Gomez, joining us from Milwaukee. You're a baseball guy. We know that you've covered this game and watched it closely for a long, long time. I've had conversations here with some some friends in Charlotte yesterday about Craig counsel and the unorthodox managerial style, and I love it. I love it because it's different. What do you like? What are you like or not. But like about the way Craig counsel handles things, whether it in generally it revolves around his his pitching staff. No, I think it's it's. It's damn unique. And I think he is using the cards he's dealt with. He's been dealt in in the way and the manner that that he has to look. They do not have a strong rotation. Let's be honest. When you'll show scene is your best starter. You're thinking of yourself all. This isn't a team that's going to go very far. But boy here we on gained seven of the NFL c. s and you know, I, he, he has a weaker hand so to speak than than a lot of managers, but he is maximizing what he has and to be, you know, nine innings away from from Milwaukee. Second ever World Series appearance tells you what a great great job. He's done with virtually, you know, less. Than than a rotation than you would ever ever expect to be in this position? Pedro, the World Series begins. It'll be those Tuesday night will be in Fenway, right? Boston, Red Sox, best team in baseball in the clubhouse, just waiting it out and your opinion. Pedro, which team the dodgers or the Milwaukee Brewers would pose the biggest challenge to the Boston Red Sox in the World Series. The dodgers had the biggest payroll, the largest payroll in all of baseball. They're, you know, they're the dodgers. They have Clayton Kershaw. You know, Manny, Machado, they traded for during the season to to help them get this point, you know their, they're their star studded so to speak. But I think the brewers of the team that could give the Red Sox the most fix and the reason is because the overall their bullpen is is probably the strongest in the game right now. And that's something that when you look at the Red Sox lineup, you look at things that could neutralize that lineup. And I think the brewers bullpen could do that. The thing that we have seen in recent years with the royals with the Indians going very deep all the way to a game seven is because of the built in days off, you can use your bullpen far differently than you could in the regular season. And you know the the royals in fourteen and fifteen at that. The Indians in sixteen did that. And I'd be shocked if the brewers don't provide that kind of everyone is saying all the Red Sox holiday Winslet breezing through the playoffs. There's nobody on the National League, give them even a, make them break a sweat. I think the brewers could. I really think the brewers could make them break what Pedro Gomez getting ready for game seven in Milwaukee, Mel is a big Orioles fan. I am now, and I'm a big dodger fan, and Mel has know, has talked a lot about Manny Machado over the years. And now I'm, you know, obviously getting to enjoy him at least for just a short time. But I don't like this, Manny Machado. And I don't mind saying that I did not realize frankly, because he was playing in Baltimore. I did not pay a lot of attention. The kind of this side of him the there is a dirty side. Christian yelich is right there. I don't know if he's a dirty player, but he's certainly is a dirty side to him. And I frankly, don't find it very. Repealing and it's easy to root against him, and I understand all the booze and Milwaukee fort. What do you make of him? Pedro Dari I think I think there's a lot of people throughout the throughout, you know, baseball and I'm not talking about front office people, but like yourself who because he's been with the Orioles because they've had limited success. They have. They've made the playoffs a few times, but having gone this deep ever before. In this case, this is the deepest he's ever been in the playoffs. So a lot of people are getting a much closer look at Manny Machado than they ever have during the previous six, seven years that he's been in the big leagues, but don't forget that it was a year and a half ago. He slide into second base and puts his spike right into the calf of Dustin Pedroia. Dustin Pedroia has barely played in those eighteen months. So it's not just something that is happening. Now, this is this is something where throughout baseball, he has been known as having. A less than store reputation. And it's of course coming out onto the bright lights of the postseason of October and look, someone is going to pay him, but I had a front office person. Tell me just this past week that he would not be surprised if he goes kind of the route of a Robinson canot where yes, somebody paid him, but he kind of just disappears off the off the map and I I, it's, it's just it's a shame because he has that one of the top talent in the game. And then he does things like this dirty dirty type things. And then what he's being interviewed. He says, look, I'm not Johnny hustle. It's not my Cup of tea makes it really hard. If you're trying to say, this is a guy that we can bring in here that can make a difference. Right stuff. That's great stuff. We're all learning a little bit more about Manny Machado. If we didn't focus on him closely in Baltimore, Pedro should be fun tonight by the way in Milwaukee, we appreciate your time this morning. Thank you so much. Absolutely. By the way I game seven in the walkie in baseball since nineteen fifty eight World Series while. Great, man. It's gonna be fun. What a scene in what a crowd fan base they have their, it'll it'll be. It'll be a good watch tonight, eight eastern time and don't forget the Rhode of the World Series goes through ESPN radio catch all the postseason action presented by auto zone on ESPN radio, ESPN, radio dot com. And the ESPN radio app. I've heard a lot of Dan Shulman and Chris singleton has been a great call and you can catch him tonight on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. Dorian Mel ESPN radio. By the way, I was just checking the Vegas odds on this game tonight. I don't really understand the money line type stuff very well, but the dodgers if I'm reading this right or a slight favorite doesn't feel like they should be but minus one, ten, right. That makes them a favorite Milwaukee is plus one. Oh five. Is that right? Who was the series. But I do not know that I do. I think the dodgers were actually favored going in the series, but heavier than that, but minus one ten, which basically means what if you wanna take the dodgers you would have to bet one hundred ten to win one hundred. And if you take the brewers, you bet one hundred and you win. Uh-huh. Fellow. Jonah mellowed the win. Win anymore. He's a draft kings. Oh yes, draft king. I listen to you. I hear a lot of the things you say thing of the land of pleasant limit, crabcakes and football. Let's go with and now our fog from Geico motorcycle.

That's the biggest differential buspar bar. We also see a bit of a difference between Mississippi State and LSU guys fifty five percent of the public on the LSU Tigers but fifty four. Percent of the overall money or the sharps are on the BULLDOGS plus six and a half, hey, Scott college game days at Poelman. What's the trend on the Oregon Washington state game tonight? Right now, you've got both the public and the sharp citing on be Washington state. Cougars overlaying three, fifty four percent of the public sixty three percent of the sharp money both on Washington state. Real quick note on that was Uno eight, Endo spread run when they're playing at home. Again, the late about three points here haven't seen much movement on that line the last couple of days. All right. Let's roll through your picks. Got what do you got your three games in college? Bothered me. All right, guys. We're going to start with the Maryland Terrapins taking the points there over the Iowa Hawkeyes. I just mentioned that one of the biggest public versus sharps games is this particular game of the public on Iowa, the sharp money on wa- excuse me on Maryland, big win over Indiana. Last week I, oh, they've been cruising, but they're still not running the ball well about eighty six and yards rushing per game, and they're kind of overvalued here. I think Maryland. On defense, they can keep this one type throughout as far as I'm concerned, you know, kind of under the radar four and two only losses to a good tipple team and that Michigan. So we took the points with the Maryland Terrapins. I also am backing the Nebraska Cornhuskers minus the points to finally get off the Schneider. Finally get that win Minnesota's op, especially the the passing game has been dreadful. They have wins over to Mexico state, Miami, Ohio. I don't care about those. They lucked out against Fresno. They were outgained by two hundred yards basically by Maryland in Ohio State was flat last week. Minnesota was able to get the cover, but that was just their second in their last nine in conference. Action deepens has given up over one hundred twenty points. The last three games. The Brask is ready for a win. They've been piling up the yardage in every game except the Michigan contest. They just gotta quit shooting themselves in the foot. I think it will here. I also took Auburn minus the points. I think they're going to bounce back in the reason main reason for taking Auburn here minus. The three and a half guys is that I just think the going up against the right deepens at the right time ole miss one hundred twenty second ranked deepens and total yards allowed per game. One hundred twentieth against the pass, one hundred, twelve defending the run. I think Gus malzahn gets his troops back on track and in the win column and this one. And then Finally, I am going to take the Tennessee titans on Sunday. That's the game in London, and I'm gonna take them. Plus the points get into 'bout seven over the San Diego Chargers guys. You know, it's every time we see that the charges are starting to do something right. They do something wrong. I fully understand. Tennessee's has been bad, but the run at six and to spread rod as a dog. They've also won five of the last six outright after losing two straight games. Go back the titans. Plus the points over the chargers. Alrighty. There you go. Some Maryland plus tan at Iowa, Nebraska minus four against Minnesota, Auburn, minus three and a half ole miss titans plus seven against the chargers that game in London. Scott sounds good buddy. Good luck to you and we'll, we'll do it again next week, a great one guy I Scott or is the picks of the one and only Scott Spreitzer an old. By the way I am going to put those on Twitter right now, think of and crisp alita you have to high noon kick offs in the three best bets for Chris and a three thirty for Scott yet to high noon, kickoff and a three thirty. So right by about seven thirty tonight they'll all be finished with their three picks, right. Yes, to four high noon games out of the the six and two, three thirty games for the best bets of crystal Eka and Scott sprites and both are rolling with underdogs on their NFL picks and both have won three straight NFL weeks. So they just posted a at ESPN Dory on Twitter. All of Scott's picks. I also just posted all of crystal leak has pixel you've got a total of eight picks that I have just thrown out there on the one, eight hundred flowers dot com. Twitter feed at ESPN Dari. There are four Melman four games that I feel really good about. Okay, now I'm not fully or Spreitzer, but a little bit later in the show like twenty minutes. I'm going to throw a four games with the number that I really like for what that's worth. I remember I don't bet, but I follow the heck out of college football. So I'd like to think I can get at least three of these. Sooner is going to be one of those. I can't give you that information right now. It's not twenty minutes from now. Would you be don't you be trying to strong arm me? I'm not saying. Chargers, looking like a team that go to the Super Bowl. They looked like a team that can make Super Bowl, pickets in the mix of did make that as a Super Bowl picking that would be, you know, man, hey, you have the saints in the chargers. I had the saints in the patriots. I think we both are or so in the game, Dr and Saint fans can't figure out whether love us because we both got him in the Super Bowl, but we both got them losing hair. You go big games all over the country. Four of them giving us a ranked team against eight ranked team Doreen Malley, SPN, radio, ESPN app Mel. You know how I love people love to gamble. You know how I know that people love to gamble does that because every time then I tell you that I have posted Scott's picks or fully. 'cause picks on Twitter. You should see the reaction that my Twitter notification. I, if I really want to just get a high number of followers, I'll just keep saying that all the time I'm posting bets on Twitter, very good posting the bets on Twitter people write them. So that's good. So if they do well, let's hope they do well against gots infla- go right now, man, nine and three in his last twelve college games three and owned the his last three NFL Philippa also three and Ona's last fell, and he's about ready to throw some college picked out the window, but that's okay because he, he knows he's going to get him back. See, he's gonna come back. That's what these guys do. That's why they're experts at this. In the meantime, big game in east Lansing as a massive rivalry game that has been owned of late by. Mark dantonio and Sparty having won eight of the last ten against Michigan. Let's head out that way for the l. noon kick. Their Dan Murphy is is taken this one in Michigan and Michigan state. How do we is it Dan, just because it's such a rivalry game that we think we're going to get Michigan state's best because you lose at home by ten in northwestern, and then go out and beat Penn State on the road. It's hard to figure out what we're going to get. What do you expect to get from them? Yeah, Michigan state has never played anything, but their best against Michigan part of part of the emphasis they put on this game every year. I think Antonio said earlier this week, that history is the best indicator of the future. So if that's any, you know, I think he's expecting the best from his team this week to you're talking about gambling in the spreads. They're on. The way in Michigan state has covered for ten, straight years against Michigan. They've won a bunch of them, but they haven't. They've beat the spread every year since I'm Mark dantonio spent here Dan going into the year back in August. Talked about Brian Lewinsky quarterback, Michigan state, like he would be one of the best quarterbacks in the big ten and a quarterback nationally would be highly regarded. It has not been the case. He's been sacked a lot last week against Penn State. Forty, six point, two completion percentage. He's thrown interception. Every game is what's wrong with Brian. Lou worke the blame it on the supporting cast. What's going on there. Yeah, I think there's definitely not one hundred percent on him. He's gotten a little bit shaky at times, but they've had a con of injuries, east Lansing, a couple offense of Lyman have been out. He's been missing his top running back two of his top receivers. Cody white has a broken hand will be out for a while. There'll Stewart missed several games. This kind of their speed guy in the slot. So without and they really haven't had a running game. Teams have been able to really tee off on him. Remember the end of that northwestern game, he got sacked a few times right at the edge of the end zone where there wasn't really any even thought of thing might put the ball on the ground, which is what Michigan state Mark dantonio teams have done so well for so long. So lower has been asked to do a whole lot someone that's on him, but certainly not all of it. Dan Murphy, Michigan, Michigan state, enjoy this one. It'll be fun. We appreciate the insight. Thank you much. Thanks. So we go from east Lansing, Michigan, do Baton Rouge, Louisiana, find Sam con junior taken an LSU and Mississippi State. Salmon in this one, you know, LSU three top ten wins. They looked apart. They're sitting there at number five. They balanced back from a loss of Florida with a route at home against Georgia. What's the feeling like about what this team is capable of around Baton Rouge right now? They're confident. I mean, the way they'd be. It wasn't just beating Georgia last week. It was the way the George. They were aggressive. They were going for fourth downs. I think they went to a four, fourth down at Burnham all in that game. They were throwing the ball downfield not not necessarily always accessible, but they were Gress. They weren't attack mode that's on that. I don't think you always miss Sally c. l. issue you sent me a with that with their defense, but offense is showing more confidence under Steve as mayor, Joe boroughs, taking care of the football doing what they need a quarterback, and they've got a pair of good running backs with it and find it works all air. They've always been a good running team. But right now they're competent group with an offense. It's good enough to pair without elite defense to get it. That's the thing I think you look at that running game and there's no Leonard for netter Darius. Gus type, their salmon. Oh, by thought that running game would be the soya strength, but it has really come on and helped out Joe borough. When you think about percent of late, if think about Edwards AllAire and what he's done, continuing to impress. Did that surprise you. Did it surprise observers of LSU at the running game with those two have been as strong as it is. Yes and no. I mean, yes, because it has been something that they've been able to do for years on. But at the same time, Nick, I set with the guy, didn't have hardly any playing time coming does senior year climate. The guy who, like I said, sitting behind somebody's elite guys, but there's been a really nice, fourteen punch process been able to kind of more than between the tackles guy. Edward hilar- gets out outside. A lot of runs outside the tackles. He's got some speech them. I mean, they get it done. I mean, under ORs wrong LSU fifteen. And when they get a hundred yard rusher and they weren't no this year in that scenario. So they've been really good. You never get it done in borough being able to be, at least I've Arete throwing the ball has helped lot. Same con junior joining us from Baton Rouge. LSU hosting Mississippi State, Mississippi State is miserable. Throwing the football, their thirteenth out of fourteen in the SEC. There are one hundred and fourth in the country, not even two hundred yards a game through the air. If they can't. Oh, the football. How do they have a shot at LSU. They've got to play great defense. They have one of the best run defenses in the SEC. Second SEC rush. They're going to have to bottle. Those run, gave him the tennis, but I think thing is enjoy more had said earlier this week. They're not gonna try to force Nick FitzGerald to be something is not. They tried to make him into more of a pass for this year. It hasn't worked out and so against Auburn, they went back to heavy run, gave him twenty eight cares and goes for high for him, and they, they have to play his Franks with FitzGerald. Strength is running the football. So I mean, he's a career as a leader among quarterbacks rushing here so that that's what they're going to have to do now. Are they going to have to live ball? Yes, some points they are, but I would rather test my luck with FitzGerald run the football than I would throwing against Williams Granville person semi. You look at all that town on a defensive side for LSU and have studied Devon, white, and obviously a greedy Williams and other guys and dealt with the software. Who do you think is the most important defensive player on that LSU stop troop. All right now I think jump is playing the best football of the group, gossiping. You see the way he went after that that face Ville against Georgia. I mean, the guys he's starting knocks for loss shooting and they've got plenty of other guys. Michael divinity is played row. Well, as of late you mentioned why wife's been consistent. He's a leader for that group, but Delta's, in my opinion as been playing football for them this year and has been one of the best players, great stuff. Sam con junior, thanks for your time and look forward to this one in Baton Rouge tonight. Thank you much. Thanks so much Sam, Sam, cod, junior, following up, Dan Murphy, both joining us on the shell Pennzoil performance line. Dorian Mel always brought to you by progressive insurance. Make sure you're tuned in by the way for football action today as Mississippi State battles. LSU it is presented by Dr Pepper coverage. We in six eastern on ESPN radio, ESPN, radio dot com. And the ESPN app. You know what's funny mill is sitting here in studio with Mike, a our producer. And watching the ridiculous level of excitement. Every time I simply read a billboard or promotion you should. It's as though the jets have just reached the Super Bowl. Yeah, you don't usually do it when I need you to do it. So now I'm literally sitting in front of you. I can wave my arms and throw my computer at you and I may not do it when you do it, but I do it. Hey, yo mailman just for you. Yup, keep it going. You know what this song reminds me of what's that? West Virginia that sometimes the most meaningful surprises come from receiving roses just because yes, they do right now. One eight hundred flowers is offering you twenty four multicolored roses for twenty four dollars to order go to one eight hundred flowers dot com. Slash ESPN. They just unveiled the celebrity guest picker on game day at Washington state. You want to take any guesses as this out at Poelman. Pullman, Washington state guest celebrity guests Pickard Washington state, maybe Mark Rippin. Nope, maybe would it be Mike price? No. Let me think. Washington state. Tennis Erickson, no. Oh, how about Jack Thompson? Nope, she's I'm done. Keith Malarde quarterback quarterback from Washington state. Could it be Tim Rosenbaum? No. Could it be one troop, let's yeah. Oh. What way back and I had to come a little four way for going way back, geez, runoff names out there, everybody, but Ryan leaf there. Yes. The RPM backfield member Rippin with the maze and dollars guys before my time. I was actually when Chris Miller was quarterbacking Oregon, they had some great games out there. Oregon, Washington state. They did and they, they may have another good one today. It was Kerry quarter Ruben maze. And Mark Rippin the RPM backfield RPM like that. What around what years would that that would have been when Rippin I would have been in the eighties. Yeah. All right, I believe. Yeah. Game day good site. By the way over on ESPN you can listen into coming up here in fifteen minutes on ESPN radio. So we've talked a lot about these games and I've got forum and they're gonna go wrong, and I'm going to be dead wrong on these because I'm actually putting on Twitter, but I'm gonna throw him out. I want your take on these, right? Okay. You ready? All right. Ole miss at home, getting four against an Auburn team that cannot find its offense. And I realize people are going to say what we heard, which of our experts picked this one today. Let's got Spreitzer over minus three and a Mississippi ole MRs. Offense is awful and he's right, but I think auburn's offense is just as awful and I think, oh, MRs going to put up points today on auburn's defense and really put pressure on auburn's offense. And we have seen at times at time. It's like last week in Little Rock against Arkansas ole MRs defense tighten up. So I like ole miss plus four. I'm finding the best lines I can right now. If you're a bet right now, which I wouldn't advise it based on my picks ole miss plus four at home against Auburn. Yeah, I would say for ole miss now with decay Metcalf out for the year. Okay. Wide receiver. AJ Brown who I think has a chance to be a first round pick is not my top twenty five right now. He's probably around thirty thirty one, but he's certainly in the late first round discussion will be. He had three touchdown, receptions story in the first two games and their last five games. AJ Brown has just one touchdown reception. He needs a couple in this game with Metcalf out. He needs to really step forward and be the big time receiver. You know we can be one of the end of you. Oh, trio. Their decay Metcalf out with a neck injury for the season. All right. Here's another one. I like ready. You said, would I be on Oklahoma? Yes, I am. And here's why they're playing TCU team that you talked about their offense as miserable. The frogs are averaging less than sixteen points a game in their last three Oklahoma's had two weeks to prepare for this game and two weeks since the firing of Mike stoops, which should be an indication to the entire defense that you aren't good enough. Ruffin McNeill steps in. People love Ruffin McNeill fact, I was talking to a couple of people in that program this week about this. He is loved. He has absolutely simplified everything defensively boiled it down to simply this free mind, fast football run, get after the football do what you instinctively know to do, don't over think. I think we're gonna get a phenomenal defensive effort from Oklahoma. I will take the Sooners minus seven and a half on the road in Fort Worth. Yeah, running the football last three games for TCU. It's dairy. Sanderson. I said earlier in the show hasn't gotten it done. Oklahoma's defense allows three point four yards per carry, Nike thrown at defense, but Shawn Robinson who are back at TCU throws a lot of interceptions were has been really throwing pick. So it really the match up with favor Oklahoma's defense because the running game they can stop and that's with right now is the the bread and butter for TCU. Thrown a football has been an issue. Oklahoma's defense, a secondary type. Some issue story, the pet, some problems. So I would agree with you on that one. All right. Next one rivalry game in a rivalry that's been owned by the team that is playing at home today. Michigan state getting seven and a half at home against Michigan. I will take it and run Melman and we thought Michigan state go on the road and beat Penn State. I know two weeks ago we saw Michigan state lose at home to north western. I get it. But as we were just talking about with Dan Murphy who's covering this came out up there, you always get the best Michigan state effort against Michigan. They don't like Michigan. They've got a crowd that's going to be in their favorite. Give me Michigan state and seven and a half points in a second. Yeah, we all wait. Yeah, we wait for Auburn, Alabama, and all the great rivalries in Michigan, Ohio state is Red Sox Yankees. This Michigan, Michigan state game, big time in state phenomenal. I just Michigan's defense is going to be the dominant factor and all these games and they have to be every week Dr. That's that's the key for them with Patterson Higgins getting it going. We know that but Michigan's defense is is going to have to keep the score fairly low for them to win this football game. Michigan state found some confidence. Finally, in that win over Penn State, they finally got together but Lewinsky's been sacked a lot or they haven't been able to run the ball consistently. Michigan state Michigan's defense is I would say, you got the pitcher shutout Dory. I think you've gotta hold Michigan state under thirteen point under thirteen point. That'd be my thirteen. The number you wanna have it. Michigan's defense can hold him under thirteen. They win the football game over that puts too much pressure on Michigan's offense by the way apologies to Gooch Gladwin who just hit me up on Twitter at ESPN. Dang Dory. Soon as I put my rent money on Auburn, you pick the opposite. Way of your pro pro being scotch? Brighter, who took. Auburn, I took ole miss. Okay. Finally, here's in all. Save this one is my best feeling. Again, if I were a betting man, I I would put everything I've ever bought. You ready for this one Nebraska's getting a win. And I think Nebraska is getting a blowout win. I will take Nebraska minus four or four and a half, whatever you see that home against Minnesota. They are winless. Yes, they had north north western against the ropes last week up two scores blue that game, their offense is gaining as you heard, Scott, say, a ton of yards. Adrian Martinez is coming into his own. I think as a quarterback, it's a program that despite their record, I understand it there. First of all, they're better than their record would show they're going to be at home. This is a Minnesota team that is not very good. I think it's a bottom half of the big ten team, and I don't think that's even debatable four and a half is the spread here. I will jump on Nebraska fact. I'd prob-. Oh, I think Nebraska wins this by at least two scores, and I wouldn't be surprised. They win it by three scores. I agree with you, one thousand percent. Do you really do? I really do I. This is the game where they gotta be so frustrated. So ready to just beat the heck out of somebody in their home. They got the right quarterback, and I think that's the one thing with Nebraska corn husker fans. And there are a lot of math. There you got it is a national program. There's a lot of times all over the country. This quarterback Martinez, he's got a chance to be special. And I think Scott frost knows that this team's got talent, they've they've obviously been very mistake prone if given games away. But I think when you know you have the freshman quarterback, the true freshman quarterback who could be big time. There's a lot of hope for the future that four and a half line that seems a teeny, teeny, tiny Vegas has been on them a little bit. Remember. They were winless, of course last week too. And they were only three point dog at northwestern, which tempting you to take Nebraskan on this one they are. They're screaming at you to take Nebraska here. Yeah, but does it make us as right more than we are? So I guess I don't know if that's a good thing wouldn't get too scared on this one. No, no. By the way Mary chimes in thank you for playing country roads every Saturday from. From this West Virginia girl. So you've made a friend there in Marietta, Sousa chimed in on Twitter? Well, done. That's all Mel selection. I can't take credit all gotta. Go up that now do we way we go every week and by the way we're talking about Justin? Yeah, yeah, yeah. That's Mikey, Mikey. You're not going to be invited to Charlotte anymore. If you're going to keep doing that. Say there and cold, Connecticut k. from the cane from up stairs to the field, that's really help you now. He's a better coach upstairs. All right. Put it that he could see the field a little better that way it'll to involve playing play out on the field and sound for. What's the one game you get one game go, what is it today? One game one game, Oregon, Washington state, you think? Oh yeah, that's where the Cal. Yeah, it's a Justin Herbert's first major test on the road for guy, I think could be in the mix to be a top five pick overall. I'm with you. Thanks, Mike. And Mike, go back home.

The next comeback inner in about two years and the smaller venue for now cool good luck. Here's fighting what else I it was with a highlight that Chiasso from signal is doing her first drama in about five years because she hasn't done the Siglo drama signal as cool Donna and discredited survival drama about lawyers represent the top want to censor society. She is interestingly dressed in the trailer. she's basically in tracksuits all the time it seems like she's a build a rebel kyu-soo signal hundred matches though she's female police officer. Okay yeah so we also we did you so judy. Digi John Kerry. who was in protect the boss? I think that's his biggest drama but yeah I'm actually Quite looking forward to hanging on another show that Nafta is also highlights do the. CIA is a Korean version of the younger the US TV show. I've never really seen gene younger. I just know Hillary Duff is in. I think I saw a couple of episodes of North America. That's interesting is saying that because I'm not sure if younger can be followed by design low by something to younger Drummer watched on talk about in the show. I don't advocate working for sure. Actually I think a little bit is I'm come I I don't know I don't know I'm not okay. Let's go into what we are watching before it was what we comport. We've completed basically So what are you watching APPA movements Well my watching is about to finish it. Smells me softly. uh-huh oh my God. I may chic. Your hand for grim past episode. Three Milton is off. Because I couldn't well derm the X.. So like I said enjoyed this episode in five and then I'm now I have just jumped fourteen major well because I think because life is too short and I just can't I really can't I mean this bullshit. It reminds me. So what's your minds of interested in of. Is that seventeen one whether she dug up with like puck really still seventeen. Limits will why it reminds me all that because the premise of bunch of time I tried to integrate and now and they are even could see subtle of all school. Sort of it. Happened happened one nine to the last saw snappy banter. He's got Friday thing. I could see that in the initial part of the shirt. Look at. This could be interesting because I like the actress. Who Will the MINIC after? The move appeals give me was easiest lovers and so I really like I liked. I liked the act. I mean he just came up with military service who was suspicious partners year digital. Yes so I kinda like both of them and I thought the Potter back-and-forth Conversation was interested interesting. But then I realized that I remember I think I was just thinking to myself that it's just not good. You know it. It doesn't mean it's not memorable if not you're not you don't want to continue. What is it that way? What's your will have to ask about this house? Maybe before for twenty years you come out humidity. Start walking okay. You don't go. What could as devilish Amman does Eddie sort of sidebar pro gently injury you other for like ten dollars toilets? Walking you immediately at your consciousness. I knew a fucking clue which you know what clues are and get out of the point is insurance unlike. No you'll try to make GEICO irrational. This is where what about seventeen. It'd be to the reliability. Do they did but others does. Your water woke up and then she went to go look for housing our family and then they should list yes because she wasn't doing career. How did they know they wear yet? Because you don't have parents are gonNA come remember waiting for her parents. A longtime extension also. Look I'm going to look for jobs because of the anyway so that I'm yeah on a like so did you at at the end and I don't what I jumped up to fourteen will. What's the end? I'M NOT A win. Would I'm like okay. So why am I interested in seeing in the end I guess you hold hope that actually will be unique. I just want to know and I don't talk to you anything because I knew that at the end and I'll find out what is what happened in a good place to jump to. It goes to tomorrow with more or less to say. He's exactly what I expected. Go to open the APP and do the same. I just checked after three. I just wasn't feeling myself 'cause I didn't want anything too heavy. It's been a very heavy month. Generally that is so I didn't want to so I thought mel to me softly. Not say one thing for them. The titles are incredibly honey because totally up to wipe that is exactly the sort of thing I will say. Method talk for twenty years. I came back out our World Cup. Korea was very very good. Well Yeah So. That was interesting. But that's what a okay I'm GonNa tell you something else but I think Jesse so has been so I I saw watching with. I've stopped on a job to the end of it and it. I've no to actually talk about this because it hurts my soul that I have you have to do it. When the chameleon blooms? Oh but that's your guy now six. That's my soul conquer new new show show after coming out of the military side bets letting the two guys this to the other guy I basically the commodities ships Karger. Your judges are looking. Thanks you too well anyway so so like I said I'm watching it in so I watched episode ten twenty twenty mcnew accident. Don't jump to the ED because own to find out this one pluckily the mother you want to find out there. So that's what I'm GonNa do like a proper of you. We get into the show. Yeah yes what is so obtuse. Go to jump to the editorial finish it. I just move on to my alive new income new. Okay we've watched. Because I have my whole right appleton down the breakdown tunnel how I feel and why might sawyer and all of a quiet murmuring. I'm watching shows airing. The three men was a marching I is black dog which has as the actress from Wasn't that sure that you re we like to see. Oh Hyun Jin and not black knight changes faces. I didn't know why hi. Oh from inside The the beauty inside C.. You Jin. She is as the drama every time I just go like this is why I love her as an actress so cool that happened with her. I do not which point because nope plus she's just please. I'm not just going into this. Leading actress Yeah Unfair Charleston. What happened in that space of time because talent but usually in a lot of dramas by large? You don't become lead athleticism age. Because she's like now slightly thirties uh-huh so you don't become a leader Digits tout as a lead actress. Not Necessarily Lincoln therapy the other actresses I whose names I cannot name. I've I've seen that stuff about that. Ron just slowly becoming lead actress now including SNL that we like. Yeah she's is going to have. I lead actress role. And she's doing Toya's me wild basically but Soo Hyun Jin. I absolutely any love her. I think she's such a good actress. She's pleased against typing vicious playing a teacher and shows can set in the school and she this this temporary teacher and it's about how the politics of how a temporary teachers are in relation to permanent teaches says and also about the school district and basically what happens in the school year is on. I like watching it. I was like like well. Let's see how it's like and could is currently airing two episodes. We could begin and I've been watching that and it's so great and may the and Higher Miran isn't it as well. The mother from reply it's eight should switch shifts academy within bt inside she plays like the head of the of the admissions departments. I wish Sieges character works. And it's just great. I read I think one thing kid does so well is that they choose is to show now wants them if they righted properly the break it down break it down. I can understand the peculiarities of that. Institution anxiety Zeitung. They ship this way on the we. It's evolved. I am on my list. Get psyched I would. They be like reverend controllable Djabel all songs something but none of that. This is just day in the life. basically what happens and it's just the things about getting exam results assaulting. Wow Okay what's going to happen. Life live rather it's like live. Yeah I would say it's like recommend prize into will reveal. Yeah no no snow chaebol revelation. None of that and it's it starts off where they like. Where's this going but then it's so far I'm absolutely we love? That's black dog which is on the momentum. Think the now I'm like episode fourteen I believe Twelve Thirteen I. I believe so. I'm watching that at moments also watching. I'm still league. You talked to one so good I when I had my doubts outs Numb Jong is raised finally backing up the talent that I thought I saw him into a year. Yes he is a fantastic actor. I mean I mean he plays you can see playing evil very easily. What's you've got American cycle looking and in this plays a baseball of general manager and again it's like black dog is set in the world of baseball? You're thinking okay AAC so baseball. Is this going to be our though some kind of e I came in with my preconceptions exceptions but it's as well all this is very very interesting If any any drama our liking Friday night lights which is a US drama which is about American baseball. We spoke American football and to me. That's one of the best sports drama than ever been written bonding. I think it's amazing. I love that show this one I think is to me almost on par because I like the I find it interesting. I find interesting learning about different patients on things at the face because I was like. What does the general manager of a baseball team do? And it's just interesting. The things he has to go against things that they have to do the players how you can have immediate shitty players what these people that do stats what their role is. And how much rely on. Information like that it's it's brilliant brilliance. I think it's really well. Ricin drama on. They must have done that bloody research because lots of it is. Wow 'cause I checked is also this country it is yeah. Show that I if you like baseball on your own stand. I'm you'll have one or two people who work in the baseball industry. Then I think a lot of I think yeah I can see them doing that. Move Build and let Sarah Know Go. F- yeah sport. Huge is football so they probably would but I think because I'm not a huge baseball not my uncle is but that's the only time every exposed to baseball like this thing to him. Uh Listen listen to Radio Watch baseball matches. But I'm like well I kind of get it by really gets it but watching. This shit was very dave very interesting also like this welcomes gone up quite sure I mean you know how to do no more home run in kind of no running the basis like they like. Yeah but you know. I don't still get the intricacies of it but this show taught me a lot. I what field of dreams. which is that? What Kevin Costner movie from the elevators interested? I do like sports and also illegal their own. Yeah I like to go very badly the American shoes but field rather but I don't know I think I understand because it's like a I I can't get into law requires me to understand that the can play one Game for six hours and I'm like why. Why but the thing interesting enough now so far? I'm on episode ten and they've been one major bishop visible match because all of the business the business to what I really wanted yet. It's interesting because this. Pr Department dancing. See how the payroll department has to work with the coaches. How many coaches they are? Because I thought they had like one. Or maybe two coaches they have about six going six coaches just one team because they could. Do you all do anez sculpting coaches as well pretend scouts and coaches well and the politics of that.

Es She's in and she's great in it so between Harrow Numb. Good mean it's been I really enjoy. The judge is judges should yes. She was enjoyed. Press's adjourn yes. But yeah that's really good at the third thing is watching is war of prosecutors. I think the other names going in by its prosecutors diary is actually bide PD and rights of age of youth. I actually didn't realize that's what she episode three but it's about `bout group is a day in the life as well as group of prosecutors staff in this office but the office based in in June July province which is outside so basically waiting to the bar depending on the score that you get your post your posted in in certain places so everyone must have been so because you know where it's at however some types of swear graceland especially seven in London. Pardon yeah but they kind of puts you to your Yeah Yorkshire Very Unsexy because people that worked there Obama however exactly where the district the district. Just as the one that you read about in the paper based but Funded what you'll is because of that.

My adding to the woman was watching. It's Classic Watch at Red Web. Since I was interested in watching it was like who gives us. It's okay it's an okay drama. A much watching what they think. I don't WanNa want to be the at the moment. I'm kind of laying. Boyden like my boys pathogen. Absolutely love him but he acting very willing it. But I'll see how it's like. It's very simple premise. This to meet spoiler airy to so you know. He's already on Netflix. Sins of the trailers so for yeah give you this what I what is basically a guy who's trying to big success says Yeah on the two goals and the guys is friends around India Biz. That's put it that way guys trying to excessive Is Restaurant eating one. Each one is kind of like Hyundai in Korea. Basically like a street wages have restaurants in Boston all around the world. So you can you see this play it does pancake famous pancake place in its own by this American that people you know go with seats running on another another registers I watch but it's two one is like the paid things like Halloween is very westernized happening. Is that the western part. I mean that will have. The phone has done a little one well. I will look for another North Korean people leave so it's one on holiday. Yeah it's very expensive to live veiled even your because I think a lot who go to visit Korea so it's so good there because they have food that recognize and they're comfortable with and then that also some Korean restaurants exactly balanced up and down the street. Ibm He's done with lost exaclty essentially and just lastly lastly one I tried last night was a show called x excellent by name.

And even the by itself it just very mellow kind of on again. No it's not Vicky. I'm thinking that Vicki. My I'm hoping it does by doing what she's on my list. I'm hoping that someone a EH picks up next side. Yeah Yeah So. That's what I'm watching of emergency. What you've completed? Yes so love. lomb Tom so I watched the first part of it and I give it a six. I'M GONNA go quickly through expatiates it on as usual so against a six out of then because I feel that it's going to really depend on the second half on one hundred now that the older I think it's interesting now. To see the effect of that we love our society and also the people that know somebody disappeared in the first part and I think I know who he is the second part. But I'm very accused. Of course the cousins lifestyle in your pressure anxiety anyway so all of that is there and I did say made me sad. I did make quite sad. I think watching it because it's all that does this bid I don't watch. I'm where those guys want to kill themselves because they've noticed in the lobby lamb and we're in a society right now where we are so dependent. I say this because I knew myself external validation on the fact that okay you can feel you can feel very very software breath but at the same time you still by the sense that needs to be some sort of validation external to that since they So he does give me quite Saad. I was loved by design design. which is the drummer talking about? Which is based on your is about this woman who decides to Thick Asia's before decides to present you? Twenty Five Live which assists is each. Get a job in fashion magazine and as usual when such these happening she made the boss of the magazine and those if knows a fashion house refresh rush magazine. And you know lots of things happen and all of this It was for me was interesting but I still give the five out of ten because interesting testing because of the premise. The fact that it was very much love and like on her Tanzania. I mean by the time you go through the whole show because I did watch every part of it It was interesting for me because there was the tension between the U. Guy that she meets and this other guy she touches getting into the and the the difference in characters boost of those of those two guys. One is a single father the other is playboy. Wannabe it'd be playboy in zone APP but I like the most what was held ended. which was that so obviously the pressure is that as something old woman you married you have particular type of job? You should be Korea Yada Yada Yada end of the show spoiler guys joining here this place stop and then skip Maybe exit northbound no more than we'd be milita so Then so basically she leaves she literally. Leaves would not guys to continue. Tina's study at the age of thirty five. She's in her sandwiches herself as chooses her dreams. I think the acting was a bit sketchy. Particularly the two Mil Copters so fricking irritated on his sister was just sly sister like all the time instead. ki-moon attitude slot back at Papa. Negative looks proud iming thus far so yeah so I asked him. I was scrums. J. Drama talking about two shows ago which is a Japanese drama it now. I just finished the absence about these guys who school and are trying to find jobs. They talk about last episode. Do we did okay. Okay and then I watch it because I hadn't watched that didn't talk about because I hadn't which did you said I should watch it. Okay can I remember US talking about the beginning exactly. So he talked talked about that so I said I knew that was going to watch it because anyway I think I saw as well from about three hundred ten because I think it was a nice idea but I think it was less than ideal execution. We have talked about it. That's you sound talked about it. You're not social caretaker. Because that's exactly what I said to myself on the show suit the Altun opt-in second twenties. So I give it a six ten and this is why so. I really do like the actress. who their shoes cycler? Also which is the self so from the case this is good. We're pointing gives you So with women with a suitcase to the housekeeper the whatever housekeeper she almond who always seems to choose herself dramas and she has that grabbed as I think to support as such by the French will support our difference with the ex wife of some some. Yeah the one that it was that kept help. The children and I might violinist Shelley Dufresne drug of this research so I thought it was very interesting again. I keep saying interesting trusting. The premise was good woman who goes back to school after partying the bids to win her husband Baz benefit to she's Douche but he is also the guy vows I was in What do you call this? The Sky Castle. Yes he was dead. The other guy was the guy exactly. And who's the guy yet so they'll guy back and watch cancel so the guys guys got an interesting of hip lakes interested in order com. He plays bad guys. Well Oh that's got area very very good was also in the one that had That's autism. The one that was before running near yes it came up yes so by. The guys is for someone I think is what popular so yeah. So what are we. Risky said was interesting. Not In hill visual references and at the end. When should this Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant on the bench? They have represented globe guy. I'd also does. He do new reference materials. Like you guys obviously making conceits what is there. I wanted to buy the bone. Oh lease a missile. All of a sudden they absorb basically Michael is they will tend him. Xyz these rich the greatest love Korean. The I just I was trying to over the over the holiday the correspondent tonight. We're like we need to watch this. It's going to be like we just Bay Susie while you're sleeping inconceivably fund We had one bora secretly is after Kim. My horrible boss fights my words. Well Yongbyong Misdee-. Hey Cheese train Jeremy Sangei. So he's got he's he's the he's the he's always looks comes across as the What's another word the respectable older jumped in Oregon Starch? Yeah so do you. Don't talk about it so you get greeting for income the pros cons and like I said I think this podcast which ended. So how many episodes sixteen but the wait ended was very open ended emphasis with. They could have a chance of two depending in half Pay For it. I think the plus the weight and it was quite open ended and I think that Desam questions a lot of questions. I left on acid from episode from the first from this one that I have watched. But they're always sometimes questions left unanswered. They things are sumptuous. That include clues but I just I think that about five or six teams that they could work on the second season if they choose to extend it interesting. But that's just me but I want to say that you watch it and I want to be Ip so VIP is. I'm not gonna I think for guys. You want what you don't watch it. I don't see what it's what is what the synopsis says about a woman who gets a text from somebody who says that the way one is worth seeing your official team and I moved at that. Because it's been more than that. I mean you could barely hear that and think about. Oh my God always. He's just one of those and white Blah Blah Blah. Put it long so what I saw. I give it a slim just what I liked him. I didn't like because I think it's a very well rounded storyline. Yep The minimal use of music in the beginning was beautiful because there are lots of times watching K okay dramas adjust dramas and music overwhelm. And they're not necessarily consistent surf music but as a pot I knew I noticed. In the beginning how does very minimal use so music. It was just the surrounding some. I enjoyed that a lot itching vibes with seven. The which is the female lead story yet basically from lead. That's why I love. I feel let not see west www will that it. Every part of the emotion every part of the subject matter every reaction to the the the environment is very mullet enjoyed it very well acted by of CAST NARA. Aw kilter just live. She was so busy now. Amazing you know just the way that she removed it different. The way you want story revolves cut everything that happens to her and happened to have you like wow gull. I don't know how you do it but you did. Good do you have. Do you think because when I watched it I was because I was trying to explain to a and I was saying that yeah and I was saying that. Oh I love it because it's almost like a is an issue about this marriage. Yes I think. It's about communication doc communication but also about the things that we if it on our cells offer show. Yes you're right. It is about communication and talk about that. You're right is about communication also. I mean there's so much other stuff I've felt that at the lower muscle. Yes the corvettes. I thought that if everybody was everybody to people in the marriage were honest with each other. Oh where all portion of the patients each other. 'cause they this election you know whether it's two different real life but I think it's I go to any told him not gonna out of ten is I think it was. Some pasta skips it on the edge of hysteria It's not that it's not so they were part of the show that had committed is the starks. But there's some that I felt were just just a label. I mean you could just pull the materials a little bit grabbing a Aita expression on what you wanted I just edging them again. Interested bucking struck like I said because I think like I in the beginning it was good. Now have the buck android by exit. Seven that Buchan truck now just became quite monotonous. Not Nothing was there and it was just questionable things so try princess see drama. I think good efforts A uh-huh good effort but now yes so I give him. And here's the thing so I wrote not that interesting overall because it really isn't. It's a very very predictable. Storyline the acting was not that good. It was just me was okay but has what I liked. And that's why it gets Watan not a fall into stock in. I liked with subject of gay relationships was introduced handle because usually those of dramas. I think he's not exactly because Taiwanese and Hong Kong the references were coming on. Books are white is that this was introduced in that way. I like the way to talk about drug use because again a lot of Taiwanese Chinese don't donate John Dory talk about drug use but with the interest again the with introduced interest Nkosi drugs but the way the talk about how you can get into a lifestyle that is drug evolving was very very good the way the divorced lost deck and people empowerment is what was quite interesting. The main female and again it would have been better. It wasn't such a predictable story Ark that led us to the impact but wishes to control a lot of narrative around I thought was quite good episodes. I'm so potentially be continuation. Yeh undefended visby second job I was. I think I was more impressed with her acting. Because I still had another show behind your smile. I thought she was a terrible actress so when I heard that she was in this but she was way better than I give credit. Full focus something which I was like. Wow okay this is completely different from how I saw like hunting that finish that show because it would act. She was terrible. And I'd love the actor which is whose name escapes me now. I've seen. He was like my first trying to germicide happened Sunday. In legally 'cause there might beginning opening Grades Up Simpson. And he's something else Li I think Edwin. I like him so I watch you find it. 'cause ended the warm hog. And yeah well that helped and so. Then what's Wendy Camelia a gun. You'll do these me so I'll give it to one out for the value. Just believe thanks. You remember those shoes. Rebecca Liu so four out of ten. So I'm died into this these news military. TV show yesterday. And what is the price because it was meant to do but guys and I think this is not too bad guys. Through this we still uh-huh I dunno so it was a small time a small town nice but dim police officer as he falls in love with the teeth. achingly the sweet and kind of dim bell on Hong by going huge. Es are other issues that are rumors is yeah no no. He's wanting is just annoying if in character. She's because after I mean she never ruined greatest. Love me I think I can read type. That's exactly it can be like okay. Great Love must've saw unlike caucus. This is exactly the same this whole on so good answers. Susu good jobs because it taught anyway so let me go back so when she comes to this character was basically. Don't something which is them off the ball so she comes to this small town to open in called on some some to open a book on Samuel Miracle City Town town where all the men could actually she comes to openness Bah and poke says fry married immediately to this glamorous the beauty of Bush's married. They're actually does America now. How can I put this? Oh Okay I was not impressed okay. Bye Storyline Yukon or a lot of acting. I didn't like the idea gear postulated I mean I didn't I mean I think the store level have been good if not for the time but we are in in two months. If not for the Gusau there's amidst or damage The knife were deemed New Gone Cues to achingly sweets but this partway it's What did not have the after shoes? Were something some this supposedly happens. We see we see the a future future view of flash forward view. What I felt that in the beginning the premise kinda work?

So what's on my a Netflix on my ipod. And then that basically that was it watching every week this show is going to make you cry. Good if you do not like like shoes that make you cry to which it has. The Guy that's in Seoul station an official was also station's exactly what you mean he h- you can't song. He's a nets former article Basically it was the greatest love. It was the yes he was. It's about what's the catch a cold kneecapping who grew up in the small seaside town dreaming of being a chef. The kids actors are cute. Cute cute but they were a cumulus.

Things happen and ends up being a doctor. When he was a kid he met this girl? Oh and made her meal when it comes to the doctor they meet again and she's a chef now. She was inspired by him when he was a kid and some song and the end up working in hospice now hospice is council. Assist Biscuit what people are so down by then so that tells you. That's shots. Yeah the rights is fuck you up and they do on a weekly basis. I actually was the ending was when it was airing and Out Tell you that every week not not crying this week because I know what people are doing. It's not nugget invested in any of these people around I cried ride every single time and go online to the other people watching the show everybody was just like bloody hell. Can you give us a break. I am crying old time and I think a lot of people very above the end if you look. I think it's a good ending. I think it could have been tighter. But even the end which ages ago which has nothing to do with show just the end of the show because this shows about food the end me cry but it's the Enderle like yes doesn't lay interim aroma Sunday a two weeks ago. Yeah then is about food and that made me cry. As well which is just the dickey's they rights as well done you hide me. He was crying like every time. What's disturb even whatever nope not this week? I know what you're doing today now. It's the United States peaking but it's I I'd like to and I would give it a seven ten some some storylines bit tighter but I enjoyed it even though it was something that actually made me. Not Sad reflected reflective. And it's yeah I reflected life-affirming out says well but I'd like to everybody likes it. Trump trump who had died. When the I wish I had more money nobody says up these days? Lots of other things will no no. Nobody says that But it's it was good it was good another show All right I'm just to say as well. Chocolate is on net ethics. Sir You could actually I know my niece Elaine list. But I'm finding out what my way through the warriors drama stuff because there's a lot in my shoes was that I would say that I'm just not the way the death pro. There's tons of stuff. I mean a lot. This is because of I download and watch from commute. Watch exactly you drive now. So you've lost commuting time you come to you and you can't be watching dramas on what should be Mac and he gets into bill money Deep into this a goose bright which is a Taiwanese drama. I think just landed on Netflix. Six six episodes so quite an ad read the book before so actually came in with a little bit of a as when I was going to be fitted it breath. Good not great and give it six ten. It's a set in The coldest times for Taiwanese completely goten witching around the come to me but Basically basically this woman what happens. Is that days this. I hit the symbol. Rich family has died. The mother says oil. It's married my son. Conrad if you don't use no mine was on Mijoli S to be. The father says what you're talking about Madonna's we're doing bots and then stuff hotlines Chris who is in its Chris. Who is the best thing about this if you watch a Lotta these drama? Mr On Netflix. You are definitely assure by him. He's I really like him and he was doing a good thing about this. The actress wanted. That's great they've instances whereas I look directly at the camera those like Dude Wellm acquisition. She's trying to break the full. Yes just tried to break the fall on realized they do something nope she crop. Actress those guys because we've got registered with. She's just shits read the book. The the book is better but it's interesting of interesting. Take December. TAKEFUJI is gorgeous. The trap music that the US is interesting. it's a Hong Kong on Taiwanese production as well. But I'll say watch. Maybe the first two episodes episode there redressed. Either I saw it when I was going through compelling enough for me to say I want to sort of sit down and jazz. Initially is emerging material. That I saw the previews on. Yes it said that I just think to myself that I I think all these. I WanNa Watch all these after. Watch on all the things that I'm compelled swoosh on this commodore track high. I would say if it was two thousand and ten afflicts the show you can watch party now again you stop like twenty twenty. We'll deca down the line known and then as I said what the Ip absolutely loved it when the we've kind of discussed the already. I gave it a ten because I unstick Yoga Anton. I actually loved it. Then I watched melhuish my name Oto team manager at Matzek. Yeah I mentioned Russian. Did about three Kosta outsing it. Nope he's finished it then. I texted you until you have finished it. And that's what you need to watch it. Yes the ones. Yeah so a My name will be dramatic is to me. I think it's one of the best was looking for a Experimental takes on K.. Drama Guy I've seen because I can ask because I can. I can totally understand why a China will say no. We're not gonNA broadcasters to this is to out there for us but I'm glad that they did it's it's not fantastic. It's a bit on even should be told but I think what the right to try to do. Was I think she should be congratulated. I think is really good. I think it's a good show and I really enjoyed it because I think if a kid drama I'm a watcher you would enjoy because it's very matter. The whole thing is matter people I saying that Oh I think the words people as in the age of youth but for women. Now I won't call the age of you for women. It's about three women who live together and I think that's where could compare it was primer. Grandma what we met nonetheless oldest pettis. I can see the comparison but I wouldn't say age of you because a bit more the moves the nuance. And that's I don't WanNa go live. I gave it seven out of ten POLKA. I what I loved loved about it. Well says that's one woman. Wanted Women is a writer who is actually I think he's basically the rights of the drama himself One is a documentary maker and the third works in PPO in a little bit revived placements in dramas. That already tells you how methods hoping likes Beasley elitist somewhere and basically actually rights especially as writing the drama about the drama. You're watching itself which I thought was drama. Drama drama on the drama. I know the. PPO thing was hilarious. Absolutely hilarious It's like Oh my God. I'm sure that really really yet I she's talking about just putting it in here and just basically distress that a writer goes through in writing a drama of house stuff gets commissioned because as you just basically seeing this woman gets this lady visa to get picked up she was she's wanted today's walk in the ice cold. Them doesn't the actually the industry-wide but you know when they write for writer there's a system. This is through. Mike said that she gets plucked out. That's exactly what they have to be regretted. Supporting the Chemo has four debris is so. That's not the exact plot to do her own drama and it just process of. That's very interesting this thing and I really liked it. They go like him Beauty inside the show that she did when she was Arkansas. She's she's an older woman whose day whom are cousins. Traditions wishes with young guys as a chef temperature temperature. You'll see something exactly where should stay a writer. It's cause in Silicon Valley the hives. But I don't the North Korea but it's like that and the president how making omen drama and it's just it's I really liked it and it was quite Sidon side and Danny stays correspondent sites. Watch as well that he got like Oh that disability sat for him but yes in the title be Mellow Window Manager Matic. The at quite lights is very feminist leading as well because of bad three women and I thought it was just every like it itself is actually bringing out that female those cultural actors you know Malta. Strive to doing that. More and more so be interested in how evolve over the next humans within Kidron but highly recommend be mellow. It's not perfect but I think it's really good attempt really i. I'm glad you got grits. Whoever was executive that well don you went? Well does do seriously well done I finished psychopath diary. It was good really wassily for you sheep because I absolutely love him but I give it like a six ten readings quite on the I. I've never watched I've done I wanted to. It was okay. I mean for him because I think because of that I watched flaw boy next door because it's now in Vicky and I was like the first one federal Johnny Fever. I saw the floodwaters causing pack. You'll pack Doc Watson him because I saw this is interested in all these pussy boy. It's the third in the flower boy. Series It's good. It's it's for me. I want to differently from everyone else. Because he's one of the first things I watch. No Se que drama home. That's Tovia I love you know. Yeah so it's good. I would recommend it's one visual during likely bring our home kind of thing by quieter. There are some things yes that's was I've watched I just wanted to say I'm also forgot the marching. Find yourself on Netflix. As well as Chinese drama. It's for Chinese drama. It's actually quite funny interesting. I think I think somebody's about eight. Thirty of woman who basically comes period of life for everyone is asking hakuna married Hukou. How come you're married as she meets a bit It's basically her meeting this young guy and an older guy time and he's like oh who she went to choose is it sounds like I do. I do better than I do. I do so far. And that's about a Chinese drama doesn't Yeah it's it it's quite funny. How the detectable society stuff of old daughter? She's like she's really good. Well round the career woman all that and she has a brother. WHO's the lecturer of law respecting natural? He's the Douche as well but I think the ways written of the waste does is actually actually quite funny but it seems to be about betsy episodes. I think but it's fourteen minutes but started. Its way at least except for the vegetables. There's an old. How many episodes they're cats dogs? Why from icon on twitter might he's iconic towards because of this episode? I cannot bring myself to invest that amount Louisa. All my general is low. Mileage also changed above. Remove me from it but it's just too long nine hundred. It's very long on this. Because when they get those jobs so that nobody nobody got time for inning. Anybody got okay so yeah there's other drivers that we have watching complete said so far. Twenty twenty seems to be another good year. fourcade Romo seems scenes. We'll be back next month with of a mob database for watching go. I'm going to try and complete as many drummers as possible all civil I've been sleeping.

I'll give you guys that. Do these shoes are finished resolve. It sounds as we got a chance we love you know. It's me on his five winning. You Got I think also you might want to you quite as long actually on the When the reason why I watch all this was because we're coming off of the holiday laws able to watch we'll see anyway?

It's what gives the false impression of our sanity. Exactly. That's it. The fake mythical CS as I try them. Go into new address. Yes. Just wanted to say talk about this next time I just wanted to say I know we talked about members of a lumber last time. I finished it. Now, one of our listeners said he got inspired by me watching it himself. So I hope you've reached episode five at told me David register far today, and we'll talk about the whole show late much less on still. No, let's give you another African. I have watched. I watch a lot of kid. I just can't mentally bring myself to go back right now members well and sky Kozel. And just like mentally, it's like it's just a loss going on in my life of per from Cape. I need something light silly to get my mind off my rule. I say agree. Yes. Down the line up. New shows one that started this week is called his Sacramento, which has June. John Young from got seven and changing in. I'm not a gut. Seven fan, Levy one seems excited by his casting idle casting doesn't sometimes work. But I saw the first episode of the show, the episodes are. And it's, it's, it's, it's okay about the guy who basically you saw the primitive. Yeah. Well to tell him what he practices this thing. Call Sacramento for some. I've heard of that term, basically, if he touches someone or object something or someone he can basically see what's that person has been through a sea signals of the past to show you what that person has been through that what happened to that person does say they made it seem the something he still kind of find. Shooting seemed to discuss ability when he was seven. And now he's in high school or magician. Yeah, he's kinda reminded me a bit of all these, like US shows that he stood before, like the mental. It's interesting, I guess, but it didn't really hook me. I don't think I'm gonna be continuing. List of these because I was convinced by AVI said that might get a point in my life where I want to get involved in that. But right now. No right now, wasn't for me. They really hook me. What did hook me was the another new show called big issue, which has Hanson yon her from birth of abusing you watched that a liberty another principal away. The bride was the bride. Yeah. Yeah. Yes. Yes. Because like I watch dancing, so she's An Giang Jinro as well. And it's I, I kept on what this is about. But it's basically, you know, in South Korea, the biggest tabloid is co them dispatch, and they're basically famous for pictures of celebrities who are not dating or cool than hands and breaking relationships in other stuff. So this show is about a an editor of atop code. We can dispatch. How she got this guy who was known to be the mazing, photography basically, come back to work as paparazzi her magazine. It's the origin story. I'm gonna spoil it. It's really good. And there's a lot of action. Okay. Interest. Type all say we all know for being tabloid photographers is very exciting. Things. However, that being said. I'm sure that when the love to congestion comes in there could be different but I'm not about. It's on the Vicki at amendment. I'm going to be watching that I think five episodes in which three episodes, nine okay, I'm in the got me and the two new shows, I basically think that we should talk about the rest of them that some other stuff, which really bears repeating momentum but I just wanted to say as well that new show that ending this week is remastered the bonus ebook. I'm on episode. Fourteen believe to came out this weekend are watch that next week I think, but when African Kitch sorry, there's no government you're just about the stock to three novel the interest that I found about, is that, okay? Sorry. So this is how you describe his is named the pinch knows guys wasn't leader yet. So that was very, very interesting. Because for some reason, this film ship delight something physics Abid like it looks as though he's go back to the plastic surgeon on the jets into. Face. Quite as pinch knows as used to I feel good looking horse. So it's also never look good. But you know how I feel about him? I'm like, I know what is also going to the armies, and the, the on me on Monday two weeks ago, the eighty the March and so what I up to him though props him because obviously has an injury. That means he actually concept as an active military front, but he's chosen an gotten the exemption. He's actually volunteered working the administrative sector of the military so props to him for serving his country. Right. So now that much promise him, do what, what was reports country, regardless of what your feelings might be regarding a compulsion will into a mandatory military service. He is somebody who obviously passionately loves his contract to support them. So go so seem in two years. Yeah. What Electric's here decreasing? I'm also have time off. You know, they knew we also bugs in picture. Still gonna do some shoots for his brands that he supporting year in. About planned planned plot all over. Oh, I see actual clothing company. What you number three interest is I don't know much about the next next. We'll talk about it. But what it's quite fascinating has loves books. I you would I thought he would like it now that it gives like a huge. What's called expiration of the book industry and industry. Doesn't it just gives a land? I thought when I was watching your view and actually thought, though, so Honey badger books. I mean, it is interesting to look at because I'm again, of mentioned from very interested in the, the politics healthy as a done the, the, the real life on could ways in which things come into being so looking at publishing industry's of fast for me, Kate relative to quite fascinates. The how that plays out so yeah, I'm excited about. So that's Netflix, watch it is. Well, let's sponsor assaulted. We'll take money. Okay. This about what we've been watching, I. Yes long list. I think we all die. Has been talked dry and I'll echo, what African catcher said at the beginning about I do like shows like Scott cast thinks sky castles pretty incredible. But to me, it's like eating really, really filling meal. It's like that French meal, we had yes, ended up through because a lot of cream a little butter. A lot of everything. The other thing is the in between. My day we worked for this meal, and it was five courses, five courses, five ranch was registered scene, and it was rich and it was really small portions no small portion, but not lot cautions. We end up as you big four, but wondering. But wondering. At the end of the meal. I think we will will. I wasn't because I was I was okay. I know half of it. What we actually ache one person through in the toilets at pretended. I wasn't her. Well, you weren't gonna give away could pretend. Events and that, but my frustration. But the journal ideal the is that like you saying sky Cosso is very rich beautiful area. Rich retain like mine space. Yeah, you can't marathon. It's I mean, if you if you do marathons guy castle, I wanna know you, 'cause I need to just know how I, I think I can miracle to at most, and then I just need some space so sky castle as you said, and even agree members of a lumber. I think for me 'cause I wanted to really know what the answer was I- marathon. But even then afterwards, I is almost like it's a bit much took vying. I just a bit. Yeah. He's just like you said, I think I thought I said Marlon sky causal, and then I think got episode seven this is just too much annot real life. I l get us to get involved in everybody every deals you do seek to balance that out. Very term, by the way, we had a very horrible noise is one of our neighbors. Some something heavy much piece of furniture on them. Yeah. And if you did hear congratulations headphones mazing. Of stuff, I'm watching I'm still watching touch your hearts, which is the. God great her name now. You INA and don't look. I'm still watching that show the goblin couple, I think, is now in the obsessive steam on episode eleven it's still good still loving it. I think the best thing in it is now I'm watching the purely for her 'cause she's hilarious. That's still on Vicki famines to watching that, once you I watch your table. Anybody lights was pretty proofread, which Japanese show, I thought if it's about this woman who she tried? She tried to be the editor of this particular magazine. She always goes for the interview every, like every year, they don't like three years succession, and then she finally got a job in the magazine but not as passionate about as a proof Rita. And at what Japanese shows, the Japanese show is, the only has that little Bill quick and the way they talk about proofreading this show you how the perfume manuscripts about us. Chinese characters Cantu characters it was. And also, the main character herself. Fashiony staff. So she, Dave shook his outfits in every episode dabs little vignette outfit. She's wearing in that scene on the scene previously neither because again, about how, you know, healthy get made which eclipse, sadly what else. Unsurpassable actually looks at all of the show. And I'm trying to spot on Badin shoes and clothes and the min mini could love. So it does we one which actually which brands using because one of the things I would really love to the stock loads in Asia, the mice that are not free size is actually buy in opposed from Asia of new parts of Asia that I love that have seen shoes that I think would suit me. Yeah. I didn't designers where am hoping Kate Spade purse like an hour person. I knew but maybe you better than this could. I don't if love it was high end 'cause the styling was very interesting. But Mitchell, China allergies mix of memory. But that's not per Freda really enjoyed it. I have started overprotective who cocoa of red, perhaps cocoa that as well is used to my list, put it on my list. It's on my list. And I wanna watch it is one of the things I want to watch necks at I'm very excited when I was about the premise, I go to the polling into gotta watch this. And a very set about premise. I wanna see how it plays out because it seems to go on. I don't I well from the synopsis visibly goes who go who's incredible potential value into the real world. And the realities of life's and I want to see how that plays out. Yes, it's basically. It's that that's what the premises is narrated by fog, the grit touch, and had died. I love Haddad character. It's actually I won't spoil it as, as I say, Japanese shows, always have that extra. Correct. I think I think when they do TV. Do it. Sometimes really, really. Well I mean I love K drama. I think he'd dramas great, but I think the Japanese always think of okay what, what other way, can we do this? Let's say thinking about gardening 'cause I think about this pud caterers incredibly disrespectful, as so far as the Kochta's come incredibly disrespectful to fix some bay, the fake older than you. These very, very root. Japanese drums, are very respectful, but they're quirky, so it's always about, you know, you can it's like there is resulted in buffalo. Tell you that, that is what, so that's what I find for Joe. And then, of course, you have to tie with Israel, which always very fun tweet. Oh my God. It's all very wonderful. And, you know, graze all great, however you spoke about before, which is a bit much. I cannot recognize this speaking Korean and Japanese well, anti Chinese Taiwanese, because usually, I think we have more companies. So Chinese Mandarin lender. Yes. We second so scheme under speaking, Korean windows, speaking Japanese. Way way for. I don't know what you're saying. I can I can. Uh-huh. Which was thank you. Sorry. The beyond. I knew what Koreans. Korean I can fix. That's one of the things I found my say down this road was being to different differentiate all the three languages and the. Almost like the sounds, they hear 'cause because of this thing I got with my sisters Email, where can never say it w-. It sounds I was associated with certain patterns and stuff. So it is very interesting. When I watch Japanese dramas is very like the coast cook could then when, you know, career and his very light, you know, like a c- sound comedy explained it's about us soft up. I was fined tied dramas very harsh and disjointed fly when they speak. It's so when his tie no tie tie. I it's just sounds. Different from the other threes, not flowing. It's destroyed, but they also quite gritty tyre tyre since tied. I mean they own. I haven't seen. I haven't seen those ones the ones I tend to see is I for one thing, they're not back as coming forward with the sexuality and everything. He's a little actually Ty dramas. Yeah. I watched one everyone talks about you prince which what last year it still k- it's to me just read tweet. You know. But if you want to start entire drums you prince. Okay. So it's a it's a series of thing coming story, seven or eight story set like. Is the seasons seasons? About five episodes, were six episodes took about you prince about these all seven guys in versity. I'm basically loves come to them. It's an instance, it's not okay. I just ugly duckling autism another like you prince's. Well, I'm just having my grows. Yeah. Of my head wetting Bill historical, the voice of throwback to. Sometimes in the wall. And there's really cynical, con drummers are I know one thing they do a loss is the slap and kiss. Either woman guy, arguing he says something, and then she kisses, and, like, everything salt, and your does. Views youth that is abused us also. Have you sure it was? Does he get to ios? I finished Reagan office. Dilly of it was okay it was all right. I think she's better in life on Mars, which I think she's way better. I'm not sure but this is all right? As well. I'm watching radiant, which is ongoing has jumped from weightlifting Facebook true. And I got no, the actress with debates go back in time comes grandma. It's, it's okay. I think they're running two plots. But I'm still watching it. So I am on episode eleven as well about. About. Yeah. Into the phone. Yeah. The beginning was so fascinating with the watching everything, basically, she is lowest are, but do this basically girl, basically wakes up on their financials as old, grandma. But see there's a story about that, that it's a short while the short stories are you. We had an seven floors cold, where this woman doesn't h I saved a guy and then decide that enough love age is very quickly comes very old, and then his lagers about those slice of life dramas. It's cold. So, yeah, that one is talked about, just show reminded me of that, I'm gonna try to let you know. Cash was very early days when I was watching everything. Yeah. Buried in that. So that's radiance light in your eyes. There's always two names for these dramas, Dan. I'm actually not watching as well. The third chump it was a drama feeble died. I was show as actually watching dramas fever. Oh. And benevolence both to and Vicky. I'm watching on Netflix to watch it on the on the move. It has sued can John from? Okay. So if someone's completely. They has to connect from cheese in the trap. And as in this after Esam, it's really a good drama. It's about a relate a couple of tradition. Ship have spans from twelve years from when in Uni to under become adults my list as well. Yeah, it's very interesting. But, you know, again his watch, yeah. It's good. It's pretty good on that end in deal. The interesting watching end on is I've watched this mini drama. Cold. Is it okay? Besides. Talks about different topics and lots of my watch was actually about. These spy comes in women's bathrooms go restrooms. And these this, I think brilliant shows out. There is talking about things that women in countering the workplace when life where people, you know, is it as sexually harassed them or people that people when they come in the end up being treated fairly at work. It's very, very, very team Centric, various infamous, Centric, I watched one day which was about that. And I was I learned from this because I did not know that you can put frigging camera in a screw. Yes. Comers can put them in. Hooley crap. But. Only was look people that wants was disgusted, those ingenious with do it, sending really mindset integrative of cure for cancer. We should be all beheld the human beings right now. A bunch of what whining why anyone any MC wine? One, one. Yes. African kids. Right. So obviously I think in in count. My little gum Culas head. And then, of course, what else what encounters? That's when I discovered OC, he, I think name name, just confirmed because they, I'm pulling up my four right on 'cause I don't know names of people to embarrass myself, too much, you know this yet. So that's when I found yet so, so song, he your some kit, Q get. It was very a found. I found one about to bed lasts quite bit last episode to just catch up on last two of Michael's. Also watched. I hear your voice. Which was good was nothing snows guy supposedly. I really liked to have. So there is, I'd like to because it's it is the ultimate newer story. Like, like it's also that the boy gets the old do not it was like one point thinking, maybe get new. Maybe you'll get it up. What he definitely go are going on what I was very good. I really enjoy that high society, the film on my God. Yes. So I wish I always go net flicks and I realize watching, but I've been delayed for some reason, I think they wanted just bit of just what should only won't break it up. And I really enjoyed again because big funnel art was very fascinating to the business of art in career. I raised exactly how that mixes with politics at to Maki also because flow sensory be grittier than the digital. They relationship like the chicken relationship the video the video that, you know. Fascinating rooms always concert, I think also because they can put eighteen labels on films. They have to drums, whereas family nine chain. Exactly interesting. So like those very good for me to watch because every I joined the stoop to the art, I enjoyed the interrelations between the captors, I also liked the way that it was presented to the audience, he was, it looked at all the different facets of art and artistry. Your we're both munching speaking as crunchy bits. They actually you head. We'll talk it just shoot. Just should get it a. You don't. It's very consisted that consider so high site was good. I watched the beauty inside, which I really really really, really like I love her now the beauty me was very exciting. 'cause obviously had watched them the same Kochta. He's was a he'll is he again, I'm going to remember that? I remember. Yes. So she is Hyun Jin saving so at what shine temperature of love. Another new details. I think Nerina right now. And then I watched the beauties that I really looked at it wasn't just the two main characters, he was actually because of to supporting car because I like his sister, the personalities and the way she on that Chambal. I am not nice. I don't to be nice. And I also like to the second meal, who was good compressed. Yeah. I like it'll put everything had little bit. I was very powerful. Have the mill milk was very much about this is who I am. This is what I stunned Paul. I'm not gonna compromise YM for not going on. And then the sister was also very owned have bitchiness on who she won't compromise for it, and I let the policies heroes. Okay, went when he system went to the guy won't be up up up oppressed. Yeah. Yes, she goes, by the way, actually this off light his merged together was in boy. Little flyer. Yeah. Blah boys will flowers and the Gulf boys with is actually best friends with Celia hinge. And I think there's probably this whole thing. But anyway, so the one of the most which was the end was when the guy was called continues to get hit by goals took text into parents. I think. I think. Your son. He's dangerous. Every time he's around. Shooting over him like so what is your profession says, like my like chaebol, as, like, okay, so how's that would work so well, bright pointing to the guy on the group when herself? Besley. I love I love the he was. I mean, he, he embodied the trip of being the good wife relationship. Yes, he wasn't the sensible. So I really enjoyed that. I watched what my general, but I'm still stuck at episode twenty. He doesn't before I think changed the plot from waste about the two of the, the general unhappy. Yeah. As to the emperor. And I'm like, I want get involved in this. I will go back. I this is the fun when I to have yet, I'm not sure if I'm ready for that I watch suspicious packages wrinkle, the Japanese shoe, which Husni. Hussin meeting, because the story line of show has made follows the woman, a housemaid who's hired into this Korean, we do house, whose wife had just died as physically. She accepts every single instruction including murder and shushing, if you asked murders what she will murder the person. That's how she's been instructed to do and follows how she grit into their life, the shelves overcome, and then certain things that she gets involved with in the family that brings out about her story, so that was very it was it was interested in the giants Japanese 'cause I didn't really I didn't really convince today suspicious, how fast forward in there, but it was good suggest see of a destruction of potentially the typical routes Korean drama, unknown. I read about Japanese drama, Korean drama, interesting. So the Japanese are ended with a separation the grandeur ended with a coming together. The other way around. Yeah, yeah. I also I still watching remember an episode twelve it's like when the something's going on regarding him on these member is too short. I don't care. Hold at I watch guardian. Yes, god. You talked about how you this was pregnant when she when she did not JOL waves. And during a home. Bloody stunts read is not worse, the boxer mature. Yes. Ivanka over guard as you enter where road than role didn't happen. I just went around us actually wants to go to go professional, but she isn't over. My kids asked merge has talk. I was you was won't know that. What guardian I told you I like Godhra like the premise gut in the beginning. But again, I felt somewhat like episode. Ten things got a switch, and just fill the he fell in being become like said, the PD change soon kind of stunts to reason, I also watched the greatest love Bill. Wondering. What's, yes? Yes. So I'd watched it was suggested by not because I watched his master's son, and I to what the other one with the, the one, I didn't like that. You know. Genesee this on it. I was really keen on that actress. So more had to just what the greatest our logo, and it was already my list. I watched it. I love Docherty's such a useless human be through the what ever bought is under could use elect. I, I love the interplay father to more counter still annoying, 'cause I think she also Chris Carter, but I think Joe dodging, the app, who's now that actor's name he elevated, he gets such a strong convincing commits to such. But he gives such a, a trail that I felt was a lot of fun. And I also like into relation about, you know, the false false economy of romance. I the Sunday talked about health issues affect people idol that potentially competed chose trust. Someone Cussing where review I think is task you after the door will apps. And to those, I really liked grizzlies, and also that Yuna was there, so that, yes. Oldest, you I have seen. Okay, I'll tell you when you one now. It's God wear forgotten. Prince king cleaning man couldn't young green of MO. Ungraded love is to me, the best Hong sisters drama row. No, because the other one that I had seen that liked was told about recently Masson must've zone. Yes. Definitely definitely gone over, and I would love everything I love the I really love sports. They did a meta referencing like they talk about in Masson, the actor talk about the. Yeah. Dishes. They read other shows as well. And then all. So yes, it was when he's in love with hitting all the drama posters. Do I? I had. Reloaded his master is grits. And I also watch I'm not a robot. My interest because another shot watching, at the moment, so to bother. So I what I'm not really like to Kerr might Moshe Lewis degree that disturbs very good. But I mean it was good. It was it was like the best watched, but it was good. I think that I can I the idea of allergic to human torch alleged human being like. Okay sometimes, but so human touch funday was alleged to human touch. And then the juxtaposed show on that it's true love with quasi from all of this. That was interested. I like the style of the creation. Did you find a way that creates the road is ex girlfriend? I fall the moment that found its meals like, okay I'm good. Pete about PG to family eighteen I'm like he's been doing this lower what he has been doing these to that regard to same, because Chris had cropped up the robot looks really impressive games. Looks exactly like and that you're saying. Yes. Muster McKinney mckanie like so when I saw that I was very disappointed. Yes. I though the scientists look low of scientists I colored show because I've got one what are characterized as pie. Yes. And the way that she was positioned as a from p scientist who's lost enough to this oldest scientists guy who was on fairly prejudiced. Suddenly they're trying to change. The also easing to human being that. The scientist guy, and they're also trying to change the also buys the robot guy into human be, however, the guy that is vice president. Usually, pickled me too cruel, and he was in beauty inside. Yes. Present name will hit a lot of dumb. Yeah. Game wasting fairy you. Yes. As ES at is what floods comedian to see him in the semi rose was quite a joke. The position for me. I like the way was saying that, you know, is musical my own. My own, I own exactly what I've been the premise of how the car, the main character got his allergy to human beings was very psychological yet. So let's believe that it is a psychological disease on the Surrey as disease. So it was that was good ole to cut now rental watching. I'm not a few of adverse. Okay. Now corny watching Richmond, poor woman. Yes. Now the cocktail men mill contact, which one NATO is, is on. Jockeys shoe is has a sim disease guy in Vichy character bought when I watched I kinda reminds me a bit of beauty inside and not robots, the couch. Hell ever, I was listening to podcast about how to create the according to drama I swear for good every penis. Penis said he will get you so Todd wage. You grab your Hon, you grab he was watching bad another like Richmond, Pullman is awful. I couldn't make the I, I, I know it's really awesome. But I cannot stop watching it 'cause I knew how to end policy how the car crash. So what soon? So, yeah, cute. No, he's one hundred days. My prints. Okay. I don't. I mean I'm just did sale the to be on us and that. Oh, yes, I'm like last person, a kid would have watched this descendant of the song SOGA. Okay. What should I was like? I really liked it. I really like the romance. I like the fact that I, I liked counter. Who's the buffets the one that was in encounters? Yes, so care. Thank you. I love the Carter of verge as it is from the end of the sun. But I really like the chemistry between her and the other son. Yeah. Yes. Yeah. And I also like the fact that actually wasn't true, it will wasn't door. It wasn't very trophy was the on their career who there where they were willing to make it was. He was on. He was like he was out chasing her. And I really like that. And then, of course, the jingles jingles car. Yes. Yes. Jingles Carter who was in white. I like the relationship I had with general Gerald daughter, Allegra shows himself, new, blah, blah, blah, on your daughter of LA give you issue so intense I love bromance as well. The teams get back. But I think I was the last episode. It was like it was almost like they did it very well, you know, okay? Got weird 'cause died. Yes. Other live. I know. I okay, what there should like that does happen? I, I guess I don't know. I don't think of these guys like early in the militia of kitchen because in their bad luck rates. Right. But so that happened and then the last episode it was almost very doing Canada. Uptake on up to like NFO vocals Erickson. I didn't do what I was like something on there. But I like mean it was fun with the ended data like, oh my God. Here we go again, but it was just weird because of heavy, I know different complicated than those so simple. But I did read that shit all prerecorded, and they had mentioned that, that the that were sorta, I couldn't let with democra- drums because there's something you have changed the live feed about for sure enough for me. Everything was great. Just lockstep suit. The suit trying to I think they'll have worked. So I really like to central sun. And then now some shows that I'm I've watched. I didn't go to finish up angry grim convincingly. Okay. So angry, mom. I started that. A year. Yeah. About couple of years ago because she was, yes. Exactly. I heard that the woman have some really good. I started. He was very disturbing bullying. It was. It was right triggering. But for me was beyond the trigger in, because as one of the show, I watched the first episode, I was just like decisions too stupid this Justice because I can't be bothered with a woman commercial initiatives good. But she doesn't look sixteen years old. I can't special display just will go in that I don't care, you also would happen. And then you show mentioned now. So she's now, trying to save of bullying causes what parents, do they have to do, but for meals, very true green, I feel very uncomfortable about it. So I come commune for episode, maybe maybe some chicks Brigham try watching, but buses stop the other one is cutting single leading he and now would conceivably like hall. Maybe maybe not maybe so I said to watch it. I'm here's the thing about it is about this woman Mars guy, and she has his live in the perfect housewife life for various reasons that as happened. She breaks up with her husband. It was quite an acrimonious breakup. They do begging high shows like fuck, you know, I'm out of here. There's funds rich there. She gets upset and actual secrets bibs. Okay. Let's get reality here you one broke up with him. Do broke over the bad like let's down so bad. It was a robot who crush at Brooklyn thousand pieces of setting because he doesn't want to love you or it doesn't doesn't deserve his money because he made his money afterwards. A, you're a righted for me. I just read our I feel the premise, very false. And also felt that the women was very Messner, read, almost set her up to be a mercenary women. Now she's the character of the beginning. I want to be a housewife. I don't wanna work. I wanna be in the house onto my family. Of course. These happened just set up. It just doesn't very vapid. I'm lacking in-depth, and I personally could not sympathize with her character, yard, rather sim, time, I said, stop sympathize with his car because he now, begin a jock word sounds like. Yeah. No, I just I confided finisher. I haven't start busy started. And then the last one, I watched is the other way. No hesitant. I was auto you know, biz on advice MU and I really liked it. And of course, it starts Dez you listening to get the one so I said, what you loved it then. Well, okay, let him know send up. I liked it, but I found those desperation for love like the copters need for love was desperate. I also desperate in a way that was over the love life. She desperately was seeking love externally, too crazy level. And then the other that receive love who's also desperately seeking low push into all the fun that she have love I should understand. Why should? Why is happening to the desperation for me was just very wet. I'm dead. I rooted here. Disappointed, episode thirteen media, but were happening team was when when was, what was it that term when he came back after hit the brook? No. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I remember on you know, he had disappointed her. He told her that the author the way young young, and he came back onto desperately latching onto I will cook your view, I wash your clothes. I o carried at just pathetic. It was needy. And I felt so disappointed. I kind of dirty. I wasn't convinced of their I'll be on these types of trouble. Another young said premise is quick, some because I think an interesting one for people to walk is the lady called the and basically life gets changed due to someone thinking that she was another lady called co before that. Okay. Let's, let's be fucked. So there's a contra called way young through high school days is another girl that wasn't the sim school called what she was pretty young. And the other at the main character is normal young now to secondary school years. She was haunted promise. Cool seller. Haunted hunted by this. Joyal Pretoria was pretty with dancing happened to her aptly Harring apparently. And then once she got into university, or young ones elsewhere, and she got blocks into self now for some reason, the very beginning of the show. We see that she's breaking up with the guy and then we find out, then we now see the min Lee, the remains in those because that's our in the from the minute cracked men mill conflict, some reasons to see the future. Yes and start seeing a young. This is a main Carter were young then. We now find out that the other young ad he had relationship, and then not get weird complicated. But yes. So for me, I mean, it was not bad on the promise was interested. I was of lesser the mill daddy, like the Millia. Eric my. I didn't really like I liked what he was interest. What he's doing. What good where the mother was which mother, I go fights Young's. Mom, dad. Yes. I thought was best wings. It was very suit. But, but the interesting thing also for for impeachment inside, when the beginning secons the captors in another young where you. It'd be interesting. And then the scene where there was a is this in, in, in BT inside where the men Bill conscious goose this sort of mall, Iran, you to sit down there and where you watch. Nother way on that day. 'cause gets like a hookah. So it was it was interesting to see those similarities in those in, in the we could tell that it was similar the same studio. The same as even the second radio is exactly. So that was quite interesting. Yeah. So that I think what LS number on the robotic of what's lot in the last few weeks. That's what I've watched. Thank you very much. Just finally, 'cause actually forgot to say because I was something he liked remember where it was. It was love you. I have been looking for the drama for years years, GARRETT'S 'cause I heard about it when, when I started watching K drama, but really had the Taiwanese version of, of destroying on Netflix. What time is very to me, like her current version was way, better, that's been added to Neff watched it. And it was it was great. I would say it was fantastic by Lexa story. I think for me is kind of like, what is love where I thought the milk actor was. Greats. I didn't get the fuss with genetic I really didn't yet the fuss over him when walk of the came out, never talking. Oh my God. J hook is. Yeah. Came short, no. K drama star this Tootsie got the funds like Kajiya consumer FOX single, he added. I totally feel the day that hit, but still. Yeah, it's gone. Ridiculous hand the top of the drama. I'll still going in what is the list of it's good. It's really it's quite so get a little bit so pits the old John, Nara. Always greats in everything she wasn't this. And it was good fits lovey. I. But I is I had money so I'm going to watch next. I said watching them because the children. But I didn't do. Premieres. I my life on my mind of real world issues, hashtag issues as such situations. I don't addicting. Addicting. I don't watch. Yeah. Speaking of him to watch. We'll tell you something that we think you should actually going up. Today's actually, yes, dachas been upset too. Because they came to my place last week to get food and the end of the, the first, okay? But yet something that we're guessing families, which is well as co weightlifting culture. Oh my God. It was the furthest drama note, the second round my western Vicky. Because it was just. It was just talking about, it's so great me. It's not done. Not incredibly high stakes drama. No high stakes. They're fun. It's, it's fun. And it's also interesting because some of basil real life story. Yes. I mean like there's a llama globalization here. But I think it's the, the characters were, there was a good the Carters mill Carter's a good vibe one. They were like friends like friends that Remond friend outside on the show. But it looked like they had a good fun together. I tell you what. And the Gulf story the goal. The goes together the girls of your sticks swag, I stay was Lee Nissan. Kim, who is absolutely gorgeous is immoral mother. Okay. Mic sense. But in this, she's yeah, but how is to the ice to me out tonight? Excavate the is I fuck out, and I'm Jay and they actually became a couple of after the shirt, broken up. Now you can tell the chemistry was very I'm not hook. I didn't think the mazing actor, but I still hold up to show. Probably best laters. Listen, we've watch will really shitty our careers. I should say act. Anything else on? 'cause the only region to the he's the one radio stepped up his. Okay. Well acting classes. Oh, I think. This your boy. He would start runner Congres has she's I mean outside of movies and things colonize intelligence smart. She's I mean she's plus analogy on vied. She's very happy. She stumped by familial thing movies, have always Ishrat annoying, as hell onto the actress ever told actually. No, I'm about to understand Mike art that watch the show, which was really fills river bad. But I could tell you take up to lessons because what little voice. Oh, sure exceptional acting game so that be what happened by. I love has my good. What if the very interesting book will not four sexism and Nora and other jokes you asking for equal pay and all the sort of things I don't care number hooked, like come around coming around honor he she he stepped up his game acting wise as well. But this was official assignment and he's very goodness. A lot people said is because he was actually falling in love with the these kind during the show probably they. Yeah. Date dating after that show ended but they're not together anymore, which is ladder leaves. I like them Dayton because I think keep breaking do. But do keep together. But I didn't have people say as close as to how he's actually in remarks acting vogue. But either way he's great in his sold. It. Weightlifting fairies basically about female wrestler, wrestler, weightlifter. Yes. On her life, waking ally in school to get tangled with this swim. Who is paper number her? Here's a lot of this like mini complication illegally. Really nothing major it's I just really liked to Andy Jason isn't as well. And I, I saw her I in this is well, she's the gymnastics 'em number Hicks at Mexico, and I've seen other shows, and she difference, like in the show. I understood I saw inches, plus nine boys. She's like she loves food and everytime eating. It's such different from the house frail comas that the no kid his meal. It's Android alcohol. I don't wait signer nobody should bigger in this one is. No, he got is subjective. Of course, is lighting difference. Of course. We know them are like more than five or six I trust because she's she's so this to me that she was really. I thought she was an athlete, or somebody they go for the didn't realize that. No. She actually actor, the got back pain was being all that stuff. Anyway. The rhythm euthanasia. They're not there yet. But I really, really liked the show, other Richards, definitely something that you have your kids. Yeah, it's really good. Constant Jimmy's in this one's while he was in another who. And he usually does all this grits, he stuff. So good seem like a breezy comedy ten minutes like silly, putty was also wasn't the one dollars. Eight on considerably fund, those control of control. I was as okay? Let me rephrase. He's best known for being Crucitti and Crucitti's. This gritty AXA thing, but not of like he plays a lot of chili funny after a love shows up to see more shows like plays one hash cog says no puts upon you know, middle management guys or put upon fathers or on cooled, you know, while ankles, I think it was it was it was this one recently that I what is well way played the prosecutor like it was like a loyal something like two. Okay. I remember but either way, check it out. Guardians wasn't it within guardians? One got on of the K K. Go. Concentration. Okay. So it's on Netflix except amendment, you lucky people, so you get to watch it and it's tastic weightlifting very also. Viki. So. Yes. So what are you watching next? What I list for the future future. I'm going to finish in big shirt, because I think it's actually fascinating drama. There's also. Go KiKi too. Coming out check it out.

ESPNLA Mornings with Keyshawn, LZ and Travis HR 2

"Kershaw is coming at you today at least not last night. Dave Roberts makes the decision to go with hun. Gene review in game one again, the first time since two thousand nine that somebody that wasn't Clayton Kershaw opened a postseason series for the dodgers and it worked out. He was brilliant. Last night key doesn't give up any runs. He strikes out a guys. He doesn't walk if you've got a base hit too. I mean everything about what the dodgers did last night was was on point six, two, nothing definitely on point. I think when you get a pitcher Roland in Dylan away, he was Dylan the bats flying away. They were flying you. You certainly feel good about your chances of vast into the World Series and finishing this thing off in a positive note. The dodgers did in fact finish off on a positive note. It was a big win for the dodgers. Dave Roberts was right. Although some of us question his decision not start the everybody. Well. Travis called first because he's ex baseballer his his decision to not start Kershaw and go with reu- Ryu seven shutout innings on four hits eight strikeouts in no walks all on one hundred and four pitches which is about fourteen or so more than his normal dodgers used a combination of long balls in walks to get the Braves, goodbye and winning going up one jock, jock Petersen in Muncie, put the dodgers up for on big dunks as KiKi. KiKi Hernandez home runs key k earn KiKi 'cause this is how my say he KiKi cake. Yes, key k, but I think he KiKi got the dengue a solo Deng. Also, he got involved in the action as well. So yes, he did Travis, Travis, Noah. What? Shawn's Oregon. It's sponsored. And has his organs Bonsor. That's right by right is brought to you by Buffalo Wild Wings. Y'all. You want to win a trip to the series talking about this series. I'm talking about the big series. Just go on down to beat up. Zinc series. Upload a self Scranton. Chris, not gonna go this week into one Stena, but you can go wherever you want. Uploaded, Instagram, Facebook, or on Twitter, and you put the hashtag, be WW LA that's be WW LA and guess what? Good luck from Buffalo Wild Wings brought us some food yesterday. Thank you, Manny. Manny from Burbank. Woke up early cooked for us. Appreciate you. It was good. It was good. It was so good. You took a pant home. Well, there wasn't ho- paying let you smell like chicken wings. It was not an easy decision. The decision to go with review was the right decision. It was the intellectual decision. It was the hot decision, but we heard Clayton Kershaw say, you know, I didn't love it, but I accepted it and moved on. I expect him to go out there and pitch pretty well. Today it the dodgers are in such a good spot key. They won the game last night. They got Kershaw today. You've got Walker bueller, waiting going game three on Sunday. The winning that game was incredibly important because if you win game one in this format to two and one, if you win game, one is the home team. You got a seventy five percent chance of winning the series that we swore in a short series. That first game is everything and you talk about the first game being everything you talk about pitching being everything. I remember far Han Zaidi the dodgers general manager who should be joining us in a couple of hours. We talked to him earlier this season coming out of winter meetings, and we talked about them not making any splash moves based on the pitching. Because what happened last year would you Darvish invert Lander being in Houston? And so he went on to say. Hey, we're happy with what we have. So clearly they knew something that we didn't know. It just didn't happen till yesterday out. Imagine that's not an easy thing for Dave Roberts stuff to tell Clinton Kershaw to that. The Clinton Kershaw is a hall of Famer. Clayton Kershaw has been the best player on this team for ten years. Clayton had a little snap back though pre pre game. What is the pre-game presser? Is that what that is little conversation with the money before it again, chitchat, Lucia, chat. Sound like he wasn't very happy? No. He said, I, you know, I don't agree with it, but I accept it. Yeah, I don't agree with it, but I sent it. Okay. We'll see what opt out on you. Yeah. Well, okay, let's let's get into this. I don't know if that's not part of the master plan for to have him opt out, having him up to and not that you're going to shove him out the door because you can't show that guy out the door. He's too good. He's been. He's been a loyal guy. He's been a lifelong dodger. Everything about, I think in the perfect where no one will ever say this out loud that's connected to the dodgers, but in a perfect world there probably. Looking at him going, does he have two or three more good years left? Yes, but but does he have five? Probably not. And I don't want to have to buy five to get two or three when someone else can buy all five at an outrageous price and I can. I can go spend this money in other places with its Machado. Bryce Harper, whatever. Seattle know that I don't. I don't know that I would. I'm with you though. I don't know that I would. The that the two after what's ever left on here, like one, if I was the general manager and I'm looking at this thing, I want to see how he pitches the poll season and then you know, approach it during the off season and then make that decision based on that, what I seen him this poll season starting tonight. I, I agree. I mean, go ask our pools in the angels house working out new c. and last night review was just e was lights out Buehler's coming up in game three. And last night they were hitting home runs, including max Muncie, getting a three run home run. Dave Roberts was talking about max Muncie slump which he was in a deep one coming into this game every every hitter is going to go through time whether or not seeing the baseball well and max. It was probably about two weeks. But after that, you know before that after that, he's been very good in the strike zone. He's had a tremendous season. And so for us, that's that's an easy one. You just got to kind of. At that point time, I think we just gave them a couple days off here and there to kind of clear his mind, but his just DNA to be able to stay in the strike zone. It's pretty special pretty unique. And so, yeah, to see him in this moment. Not surprised. This is the way that the dodgers play. There's going to have, whether it's it's max Muncie or Cody Bellinger or KiKi Hernandez. The may Justin Turner probably doesn't fall into this category, but most of the dodgers do they're going to have moments where they don't get hit for two weeks and then you turn around. They're gonna hit a couple of home runs and win a game for you. And that's the way this team is built. It was constructed and has been that way for very long time. The dodgers when you look at it overall, the dodgers blasted a franchise record. Two hundred thirty five home runs this season alone, which I believe breaks their record from last season. What did I just hit x. amount of home runs. So it's a long ball situation for new, but they also what I deem is manufacting runs by getting guys on base, whether they're walking is where the guy gave time bus night wh. Wh-whether they walking with their singles. You've got to have a good I to to, to know not to take that nigga. I wanna go. Yep, good walks is going to hit guy. I just like, I bet now just as good as a sack. You give me a pitcher pitcher Chad when he was playing gimme Soviet USA. Bad about swaying pitch pit pitcher in a hole, ten feet. Deep can't get out because he got big fee. Did I get a key. A lot of time on baseball field. I've never heard that one. I never heard pitcher in a hole, ten feet deep. He can't get out from the beginning pitch in a hole, ten feet. Deep can't get out because he got big feet. Take that. That would've worked for me if I was pitching and I would have heard that it would work because I would have broke out laughing. Have not known what you're telling your on mount on the rubber. Have you heard this one very. Yes, I ever a couple times a you right runner all the time you had to run right. You had to run and I what that is right having when they're trying to tell you the base. The basic? Yeah, he's still at goals, runner his to his two. He's too late. He's already. They didn't. Deprave can getting anybody last night and. You said it would Kirsch does today is going to be fascinated because it's place. Let's say he comes out and he's what we've seen for the last month or so. He's okay. He does. He's not great. He's not bad. He's okay. He goes out there and he gives you five innings gives up three runs, and he's okay. Now sudden moving through these next couple of series, it's it's. Tonight. Six, I'd take six. If you could buy six right now. So gimme six innings. You take it right. Six to three hits. I take oh six innings shuttle. You'll take a hundred times out of one hundred hundred six. What if it? Six innings. Three runs three when he gave up. Yeah. No, I don't want to. I'm talking about us. I'm not talking about him giving up any real. I need to Rush's from us six innings. I don't want him giving up any real course, but that you're not gonna pulling before he gives up three. What if it's one in the first one of the third and then I wanted to six. He's not getting lit up. He's not. They're not knocking him around one in one that means you started off slow. You got hot. I don't like that because I'm getting nervous. Now, look if you start off slow, I'm and get nervous. He gets first inning. They get a double sacrifice. Fly ball. He didn't get lit up. They gotta run. Okay. Next thing you go out there. You cruise next inning. Maybe give up a home run in the third, but you get the next three guys, bang, bang, bang. And then the fourth you get bang, bang, bang to get him. Bang, bang. And now you're just you're cruising then the six, you know, another double single and now it's three two to your behind. He's pitchy six. I can't sign anymore. One game knowing signed him for the con I'm talking about that performance it. That's kind of where we are with him right now, that sort of performance where last night review, eight strikeouts no runs Walker bueller against the Rockies and gave 163. He had a bunch of strikeouts no run. So he's just locked in. I don't know if that's what we're going to get from number twenty two, I think when you look at him tonight on the mile and one of the things that I would say he needs to do, he needs to be able to start off fast. He doesn't need to start off with a double a sacrifice. Fly guy, gets it third in the nugget sacrifice fly and they bring him home is one that no, we need you to get back to Dillon whatever that is. We know you're not you. We know your philosophy is down. We understand that, but you've got some other stuff. I need you to get to your stuff and I need you to go to set up with the v. low. It's set up with velocity if I have that crazy velocity, if I have that crazy command. That I've had for my entire career. That's the reason he's a hall of Famer that you can't just go. I'll just go to plan b because that what his plan is is set up on that unbelievable stuff. But he's been able to show that he's been able to do plan veto. He's been able to do that. License be is give up a scratch, run here. Another one there. Keep your team in the game. Don't let it get out of hand. Let's get to the sixth inning and the game tied down by one. We're up by one. This just stay in the game. Whereas before, if he give up more than two run straight innings, you were stunned, it's it's almost unfair that we compare him to himself because he was so good for so long. That's an unrealistic Barda hit. If you said to any guy pitch and how many teams are left eight, the eight teams that are left. If you said you're starting pitchers. Gonna pitch six innings and only give two runs. Every single guy would take that from every single guy. And we hope Kershaw to a different standard because he set the standard for himself and then it's hard to it's hard for you to surpass. Your standard is easy to come down from your standard and half people question what you are as a player. That's all. Always the case with every LeBron James will see ten years from now. If he's still around hanging around six years from now, you know e forty years old. We we say, man, that's not the same brand for twenty five. No kidding. That's that's what's going to happen. But I think Kershaw is still a very viable piece for us in terms of the ways pitching his style, I'll take what he's given. No look. This is this is going to sound like an insult and I don't mean it this way. Clayton soap me. Clayton Kershaw is a fantastic number three pitcher. He's a fantastic number three pitcher. That's what he is right now. There is absolutely Brandon. Ingram was forced to play the point last night, loved it here. What LeBron thought next future and a full ten feet, the cake it out because he's got. That's what I was just a chance you want me to do. Pay happens when you let brothers on diamond. Yes. So I guess don't forget. Casey Joyner is going to join us next segment, which means you have your fantasy football questions. Get him in right now eight seven, seven, seven, ten ESPN because we load up fast. We'll get through as many as we can. But if if you wanna get your answer from Casey, Jordan or joiner I should say, make sure that you give us a call right now. Lakers last night, they win one twenty eight to one twenty three, Brandon Ingram had thirty. One key was doing a bunch of work. LeBron loves what he see. And we've been looking to find who's going to be LeBron's running-mate to hear him. Tell it to your magic till it. It sounds like it's going to be Brandon Ingram. It certainly sounds that way. It looks that way as you continue to watch the game in a flow in the Brian when he's on a court with Ingram east, he's deferring him an awful lot. I mean, he just he really is. I mean, it's almost like as I was looking over the last couple of games, he becomes almost. I optionally in the past for him. If he, you know, with his length, you know he could score, you know, he could defend. He is what he is. He's not going to all of a sudden BI to forty, just not going to happen. He's not gonna, you know, gain a hundred pounds overnight. Just not going to happen, but he, he reminds me and I you, you, you say is and you take it how you want to reminds me of like a poor man's Kevin Durant to a degree. I sit back a, you know, he's not there. No, he's who is well. Me has been a leak right years or something like that. But he just reminds me of that because of his size and his length and his athletic ability to be able to move around. I think he's a better defender then Kevin, but Kevin certainly creates on his own much like Ingram key. You came into the NFL's the number one pick, so you didn't have the benefit of this. You came in not only the number one pick you came in is the number one pick into New York City. So I mean, it's it's, it's a double whammy. Not only you the number one, pick your the number one. WMA depending on who you asking. I'd take that any Tatum New York City. That's you. Okay. That's you. And that's you with your personality and what you you're, you're good with it. There was nothing about that. That was too much for you to shop. It was you? I went into it knowing what to expect. Exactly. And the spotlight was on your from the when we got there. The Lakers in LA is not unlike what I just described with you and Brandon Ingram comes here, not number one. Pick number two pick, but say anything, massive, same thing, massive expectation and savior. Yes, fix this. Yeah, the the answers, hey, we picked you number to fix it. Yeah, this is why we have a number one overall pick, we probably would have picked you there. So that's just how it is. It's, it's one of those situation. And it's interesting because I think that Brandon Ingram is going to thrive now because it's not a well fix it that LeBron's here now it's LeBron's job to fix it. Now it's LeBron job to get them into the playoffs to get them into the conference finals to win a chip. Brandon. Ingram's gonna take off because every eyeball every night isn't on him with a okay, fix it, but he's but LeBron is a fixer LeBron knows what to do with a young talent. If you look at the young talented players has been around him that were high draft picks when they wanted to listen, they got the best out of it when when they wanted to go against the grain, like a Kyrie Irving, you, you wind up getting yourself shipped out of town because you did not want to be a part of something that was could potentially be special because you felt like you needed to have your own team. You needed to be your own your own spotlight where if you're Los Angeles Laker and your thriving as a Laker, you become a made man. This is not Cleveland. It's almost like UCLA basketball. For instance. You can be the ninth man on UCLA's. Basketball don't play for two years in have a fifteen year career NBA. That's how it is being a Laker. If you're if you're just a Laker in, you're winning and you're doing everything you're supposed. To do, you could be successful and be, you know, people look at you and go, wow, he's legit. He's legit. You go back to the magic. She'd go back to kareem's. What? What are you? You go back to the magic, go back to Corinne worthy worthy wasn't the two. He was the three. He got a lot of miles out of it though. Still does still does. All right, Pasadena. And Ferguson Ferguson, you're on the morning show what's going on. No, man. I'm actually calling Sino also. Out there. So central Pasadena's chat actually goes like this pitcher in all, can't be beat. We can't get out because he got, no, he won't wear. What would you do that with? You could do that with two. I heard that. Would that make sense of Ferguson's. But you, but you if you've got a pitcher on the mound with big feet or you'd make him believe that he got big feet, you teasing. That's what it what does it have getting out of whole what they have to do? What are you into mount on the rubber? You know, you just kind of right there if you if you've, I don't know Ferguson, did you pitch. Yes, I did. You know how on on the rubber? There's always a little little it a little Divet. That's what the tenth. That's what it is. Raj never played baseball. So we're having been better prevent you from pitching? Well, it's it's a KOMO mez. Just a joke has relaxed. Like Ferguson's version can't get out. Yeah, makes sense. It makes he all of it. There we go for me a battery Chan. What would you do to the better? Well, fat about a swing. I mean, how about did you ever have the belly at your one? We need a pitcher, not a Bill yet. You know what I had that one did. I was being we a pitcher, not a belly, it your, we never. We couldn't come up with another word that rhymed with pitcher apparently only Itcher scope. Go back to one, but not. When we were talking about the Lakers I don't know. He's multitasking. Brandon Ingram was running the point last night. No Lonzo they gave Rhonda the night off just to give him a little bit of rest, and he was. He was really, really good. Here's LeBron talking about on playing with Brandon Ingram and the relationship that they're developing with each other. Although it was great all games not just in the second half, you know his, his pace. Ability to play point play the Wayne. He's very special talent. You definitely happy to have him on our side. What kind of relationship you to develop time? Granted, it's growing more and more every day more and more every day and know what I see him. You know, and you know he's looking looking for his opportunity, make the next jumping is in his third year. So. So a lot of upside and make you. Happy to try to give him as much as I can. That opportunity is going to be there every single night because everyone has to focus on labout. I wonder if his locker is next to Laurent's LeBron's basically Kobe's old locker is next right? Right. Where it used to be, they've kind of redone it, but I wonder if if they put Ingram like next to the bra, typically when you have a talented young player, woulda talent to what a superstar veteran, you always kinda put them next to each other because the conversations and things of that nature, they could just it could be natural there get to know each other on and off the court. I wonder you need to find that out Rosh. That's your homework for next week. I it Brady to it. What am I looking at? You're going to be looking to see if I want you to find out if Brandon Ingham's locker. How close Brandon Ingram locker is to LeBron's. Oh, I'll get. I'll get Deb before the show's over. Okay, that works dis- dis-. Does he need to fall into that secondary role? I, it feels like he's a, he's better suited for this. Because when we've seen him try to be in the the number one role, he sometimes it was there other times less so and we won't be in a number one row anyway. So no, that's what I mean. And I think that's better for him. I think it's better for him to be able to be in the number two role. I think this number two roles will be by committee. I don't think it's going to be a guy. I think it's going to be. It's going to be Ingram. They kinda gone afloat in that type of situation with the trust factor OB will you'll be able to trust either one of those guys. I think that's where it's fall to. I don't think it's going to be a clear cut. He's one, he's too. He's Jordan. He's Pippen period is I don't think he's going to beat it. I think it's going to be a combination of both because they both still young. I don't know seeing what I saw last night and seeing the way that they're talking s. seventeen. Yeah, it's not thirty one in Brandon aims. Gonna have the ball in his hands. He's going to have it in his hands more often, the couscous is going to get it and let it go, who's gonna finish on breaks? No, I get that. But I just I. I just think that it's going to those two gonna run by committee until one takes completely over. Casey Joyner the football scientist is going to join us. Next. He's going to answer your fantasy football question. So get him in right now. Eight, seven, seven, seven, ten ESPN. You can also send him in on Twitter as Willie. Could send Remi at Travis Rodgers and Raj as well. Say that again, rush. All right. We're going to do that with the people have spoken. They say, LeBron has to lockers and Ingram's is right next to one of his locker. There you go. So there you go, their neighbors, their locker room. I it had to be because it makes sense. Casey, Joyner, football scientists. Next. That's Casey. Joiners music. Casey joins us every single Friday to get you ready for your football team. Casey Joyner ESPN senior NFL and fantasy analysts. Casey good morning. How you doing. How are you guys? What I'm tastic. So let's start. I'm sorry. I chop. That's good game last night. I couldn't even hear you. Oh, yeah, great game last night. We mean could it's a great game we we're in the Ming live here. I yeah, Buckner lineup, you're happy. If your fantasy on your head of who people if you have you run into the lineup, he got a touchdown. Few people had him. So. Yeah, e. Bron air Bron on discount. Yeah, I had Tom Brady. I got him for cheap. So let's start right here. The Rams they're going on the road. They're going to Seattle. Russell. Wilson has always had a tough time against that Rams defense is a good week to put Russell Wilson on the bench and last three weeks of the season Russell Wilson, Mike twenty. Ninth and quarterback point. Ooh, twenty nine part of it is the offensive line. The offense find is abysmal. It's atrocious there depending on how you rate their metrics there, either the worst in the league or next door, a league and overall blocking. And I think it's going to be a problem for them against the Rams because the Rams offense is gonna enforce Seattle to get out of the mode that it's in right now run. I know that it's in and it's gonna force Wilson to throw. I don't think he's going to get a lot of time to plus the only has forty two rushing to this you all together. I don't really want him in my up this week. We look at his running game for Green Bay Packers, Aaron Jones, Jamal, Willis, what's wrong with the Packers in the backfield in terms of their blocking metrics, they're blocking pretty well. Actually, the run blocking is among the top ten in the league. So they're blocking fairly while. The problem is Williams. When you look at how productive he is when he gets good balking he's about a garden hat below league. Average and Jones is over the league average. In that metric he, he actually gets more yards per carry when he gets good blocking. So they should be giving more cares to. I expect that they will down the road, but they seem to be wanting to split between these two. I think eventually they'll change their minds, but it trends upward for Jones long-term. It might not turn up from short-term though, because I think we're gonna be kinda stubborn about Casey. Joyner ESPN senior NFL fantasy analyst. Join us here on Keyshawn, l z and Travis is Mitch. Trubisky guided I should push into the number one slot or is it fool's gold? Probably a little bit of fool's gold in some ways. I mean, he gets six touchdown passes. It's the great metric to have problem for them is that he got a lot of great pass pass Bach in this past week. He saw only passer special. Only one of eleven vertigo pass attempts and he got nine completions there for two hundred sixty three touchdowns the teens. He's got coming up next scheduled or off this week, but it seems to have come to week five and six or Miami New England, the patriots and dolphins finished first and second respectively and pass special rate on vertical passes and weak force. They were getting after the passer. He's not going to have the kind of pass blocking that he got last week. So I think down the road, it's going to be a lot more difficult for a couple of weeks, long long-term. I like a but not over the next couple of weeks. Casey Joyner. Taking your fantasy football questions. Eight, seven, seven, seven, ten ESPN. Let's start with one from Twitter. Casey, somebody wants to know, carry on Johnson or Derrick Henry at the flex. Henry is difficult because he's getting carries and actually getting into good blocking, but they're not that offense is not generating. They kinda scoring opportunities that he needs carry on starting to get more carers to move away from that platoon situation. Now it's more relieved alternate with him being a lead and Detroit isn't a top ten in run blocking this, you wouldn't think offensive line is that good, but Patricia has got them blocking very well this year. So I'm going to carry on that one. Let's take our first phone call. Let's start in Torrance with Alex, Alex. You're on with QC Joyner. What's going on this morning? Good morning, happy Friday. Everyone. I have half point p PR go with on the struggling Lamar Miller or the only son the end zone, Alex college as my flex. Thank you. Collins. He was. I think he has some practice issues this week. I wanna make sure he practices today before leading on him, but he's the better of the two banks because Miller has done a terrible job and I could balking arch protect us mentioning. He's not doing well. That's why they're starting to move some of the workloads away from him over to over to blue. So I think that would Miller trending, downward that win as long as Collins's healthy today. I think that's an easy choice. Coming up Los Angeles this time and Walter Walter, you're on with Casey, Joyner. Good morning. Everybody I need to p p r league Crabtree versus Cleveland, really versus pit. Mike Williams versus Oakland. Can you steal versus syncing need to. Need to Allah boy. Like really that I just don't think they're going to give them enough carries. They're, they're talking about giving con Amore cares which they should. And I just don't think he's gonna get quite enough. Their crab to Williams and stills of the three. I probably trust. I like Crabtree the most every he's not a vertical receiver, but in the p. p. r. I'll take him between Williams and stills. Williams has more upside than still does because the chargers have a fantastic blocking just week. In fact, there they have the largest blocking edge of any team in the league. So I think we're going to have all day to throw. So I'm probably gonna take Williams. When you look at it, stay with the charges for a minute. When you look at the offense align LA chargers in not rivers with Delvin, but Ingram at the running back spot holiday four fair this week that I didn't get you in that in that matchup they, they've got a fantastic edge charges are seventh and my run block congratulate here. And they've been terrible about that in and pastures. Gordon always had to do it without getting much blocking help. They've given them a ton of blocking this year forty eight pump over time. You couldn't give blocking Carey, so they're very good in pass blocking as well. The ranked sixty my run and pass blocking grades and the raiders have they have f- Braise impasse. Rushing overall fund seven, and they were only couple percentage points of getting enough grade and run defense. I'll put every charter my lineup by Canada's, Gordon put rivers. I put in key now on, I like Acura. I like Mike Williams. I mean, I'm trying to get as many charges. I can't in my life because I think they could get forty points as a team ESPN senior NFL and fantasy analyst taking your questions for your fantasy football team. This weekend red Lynn's. This time and Brian, Brian, you're on of Casey. Hey, what's going on guys? Longtime listener, first-time caller. I got two part question number one. Do I start stuff on digs and PR or came in Allan Emma number to die start, you agrees or Philip rivers. Thank you. Gene digs and Allen you get to and why does she were once there? It's really embarrassment of riches as far as those to go. I gotta say I was talking to Allen on a real like Alan, he I've got him barely ready to head of dig zone because digs I've got. I've got him system. I my wide receiver charge. You can find a way to rank us by the way and the ESPN dot com and ESPN's fancy section. I've got him read. It's slightly hit a digs. I think they've okay, fantastic numbers. But I probably go Allen for that forementioned blocking edge in-between breezy rivers. The saints had terrible won't block in the first couple of weeks, throw the ball, and I don't think they want to do. They England comes back this week. The run block has been much better the last two weeks. So I think we're going to be running about whole lot more rivers has that aforementioned blocking it. So I go rivers TC. What about Cooper Cup? I mean, what would you do with him if you have him on your roster right now? Does he in the line of every single week may had a big week last week against Minnesota, or did you see one of those guys? You don't even think about it. He's just in every week. Now as in every week back the Rams receivers. This week, I love that matchup against Seattle for number reasons. I think see how the secondary's not quite as good fact. Seattle, it's funny. They rank twelfth or better in fantasy points without running backs, quarterbacks. Tight end and wide receivers. And yet I've got Rams receivers. I've got cooks rate at twelve ago woods rated tenth or and I've got Cup rated fourteenth. I mean they're all wide receiver ones or twos this week because I just think that's the other secondary. I think their numbers are skewed by who they've played. Those numbers are going to take a big hit this week eight, seven, seven, seven, ten ESPN. If you've got a question for Casey, join in your fantasy football lineup, this weekend. The would Indy into your on with Casey Joyner. What's going on. I just wanted to know if I should start Ingram since he's coming back this week. Definitely absolutely. Would want would wanna start Ingram. I mentioned that in the first couple weeks season New Orleans had horrible run blocking. It was really the bottom. Like I think six in the league is how bad it was, which is surprising for that team Gmail. Well, they block last year. They're blocking it last year's pace. The last couple of games. I don't think they wanna do. They wanna wear Kamar on there probably gave them more carries than they wanted to. 'cause Gillislee didn't pan out. So I think with Ingram back, they're gonna make that a platoon that can he'll get fifteen carries at least that love the matchup. So I've got him as Rb to this week, going through as many phone calls as we can. Let's go to guard Dina and Aaron, Aaron, you're on with Casey. What's going on Aaron. A football scientists got flacco and the Bortles who to start back on Bordeaux's wouldn't think that would be good options coming in the season, but their vote actually very good options. This week I've got Bortles rated slightly higher because Kansas City secondary is terrible there banged up probably missing their strong safety, Eric berry again. So as much as they can both keep you to Bortles upside more and I got him going this week KC do I take Dak Prescott or Watson. Gotta go gotta, go Watson, that one. I don't really like the matchup for him this week. I think there are about their pass blocking is among the worst in the league in TAOs will get a lot of pressure, but he just has home run hitters in receiving core and Dak doesn't index not run of all that much either. So gotta go watch on that one Irvine, this time, Irvine, and Tucker, Tucker, you're on with Casey. Joyner what's up? What's up guys, a fight on key. Unfortunately, I have two tween standardly a buck Alan and idea co. Well, thank you. Oh, that is a tough call. I got really is buck out and then crow l.. I would probably go and that one given the way that they're performing, that offensive line's performance. I probably like about Baltimore and that one and plus two Baltimore offices just more powerful. And I would think that that would be a good tie-breaker there, but that's some really rough options. Last one in Palmdale Ed Carlos Carlos. You're on with Casey. Joyner. Good morning. Katie question Cam you in or Matt Ryan, should I tried to leave looking at getting rid of a rob gronkowski. Getting rid of Brock, the amazing we're thinking that, but probably getting rid of gronk is the tight end position is exceptionally thin this year. The drop off from the top. In fact, I had gronk rated fit this week and I might read it on lower given how he was performing, but who else might gonna put in front of them. I got read George kills the number seven tight end on my board this week I in it. He's he's good, but he's not great. So as thin as tight end is unless you can get a starting tight end return former wouldn't drop him between Newton and Ryan this week, I knew a lot, but Ryan's going up in Pittsburgh matchup Pittsburgh, secondary's banged up, Atlanta secondary's banged up it up seventy between those two teams. I definitely get every player I can and their Ryan being top on that list. He's the football scientists, ESPN senior NFL and fantasy analysts. We talked to him every single Friday. Casey, thank you very much. Appreciate it. You got it. You wanna get in early, we get through as many as we can. But if you get in early, got a much better chance of getting your question answered by Casey, so forget every Friday would talk to Casey. We'll talk to him. We from now five dollar Trojans baby fight on by week by week, indeed, get excited key. We are going to whip around the NFL. That's what we're calling it. The whip. Right? Whip. Pig skin peeling pillow back of something that's coming up next there it is. Our friend the the squeezer week, five of the NFL season kicked off last night. Beaten the cold stick and look at what else is going on game number one, the. Timing hate that sound the dolphins in the Bengals a match up a three and one teams. The dolphins feel fake three and one the Bengals feel like they might be legit three and what I think the Bengals are legit three and well, football team. Marvin Lewis has got things turned around, shifted his staff around, got new position coaches to help him out. But Andy, Dalton is plant pretty good football right now. AJ green bit catch against Atlanta last week. When you shifted the Miami Dolphins, they got demolished up in New England that just goes to show you what a great football club, New England Patriots isn't what a bad football team. Potentially the Miami Dolphins could be an week division. How long do you ride a guy like Ryan tannehill these big. He's been there a minute and they've been terrible with him. When when do you decide enough is enough and move on from ago when you look at it though, for what is worth Travis? What are the quarterbacks are out there that you can acquire? I mean in the free agent market where you're gonna sign Sam, Bradford we're gonna pay, Kirk cousins, a bunch of money, like where you going after case keenum. Ame-. What so when you look at it, there's not a lot of options. Yeah, you could. Essentially traded for teddy Bridgewater, but the New Orleans Saints stepped up to the plate because drew Brees will be gone out of the NFL here in the next couple years. Cleveland back home one, two and one taking on division leading Baltimore three and won the ravens. Arguably maybe the biggest surprise where they are at three and one. Well, I'm thinking of big surprise because how they ended last year and they've been missing the playoffs. He of recent coach was on a hot seat a year ago. The owner came up public and you said he thought about potentially moving on from from horrible ball at at the head coaching spot. But when you look at the Cleveland when you look at Joe flacco who's playing pretty good football right now, he goes up against Cleveland, Brown football team retu- rejuvenate a little bit has a dominant defense in my opinion, as young still learning how to play football bunch of youth on that side of the ball. But I think it'll be too much for Cleveland to handle Baltimore should witness game kind of going away. What about with bigger Mayfield is as the he came in, there was so much energy. And then all of a sudden he actually was pretty good in Oakland, but it feels like there's going to be a correct. He's a rookie quarterback. We saw with darnold looks great, and then it kind of back slides. That's what's going to happen. You get a few games out on you, the understand what you are now, and they'll put the clips together as preseason games and put the clips together when he replaced tyrod Taylor. And they're also have a full game of the Oakland raider game, which I thought was pretty good for a rookie, but yet and still Travis. They understand what he is. He's just a rookie. So I'm sure that they'll get after him. Don't talk over the pig. Steelers their season could arguably be on the line this week. I know it's only the fifth week of the season, but at one, two and one, they've got the falcons coming in the falcons also a surprising what in three, they're supposed to be a good team. If they go one four, that's a wrap. It is a rapid, especially in this division is division has historically been a log jam. When you look at who's in there, they can't afford to lose football games that they should win against the Atlanta Falcons courses for whatever reason. They're not a good football team overall. Right now, the seemed like they, they could get it turned around, but yet and still they fall short every single time. Steve Sarkisian the offense aside a ball just hasn't been able to get it done. He's a guy. Will probably be on a hot seat because I'm sure that Dan queens not gonna lose his job messing around with Steve Sarkisian. On the flip side, talking about losing jobs, Mike, Tomlin, going one and four. I think a lot of people will start to say, well, maybe his time is up if Pittsburgh and that happens. He he's a great coach, maybe him to move on. I, I have a prediction for this game, gentlemen, one, three and one. Not one in four. Yes. I think Julio Jones might actually catch a touchdown, pass breaking news that's going up against the. He's going up against the Pittsburgh secondary that is not going up against bad secondary's the last twenty five games only scored three. But for this one I think he can. I think he can do it. I think he'll do it the loser of that game, or they've done for the year, I think so Carolina New Orleans and Baltimore, and. Let me Cleveland. Maybe. I guess. Cincinnati. I'm sorry right here in LA the chargers. Stub hub are going to be on the road against the raiders. The raiders come in one and three. They make it two in a row. The raiders are not favored by. They know if they were not because it's a home game for them whole team used sometimes a favorites about is the raiders raiders football team, but they've been closing games, I think San Diego. I think the San Diego Chargers. I think the l. a. charges or a lot better. I think that when you look at Philip rivers, Keenan Allen Ingram and if they can get Bosa going, this team could make some run later on in the year. Okay. You said a second ago, the raiders are bad for, are they? I know they're not a good team, but are they a bad team teams lose bad teams to me. Look like teams like the Houston Texans, the Miami are what your record say, you Bhakti. There's nothing about them being in all four, these. There's no silver lining that this one right. Talking about a couple of teams that are not where we thought it would be the eagles are five hundred to into their at home against the Vikings one two and one that we could throw the Vikings in the pile to with with Chicago's going the way the Green Bay's going the Vikings lose this when they could be buried, you know, like like Seattle, I like the Vikings. I think when you look at them whatever's wrong with their defense, I believe in Zuma believe he can get it corrected a no Everson Griffen hadn't played in the last couple of weeks. They've lost some steam. They're on the defensive front. Anthony Barr got torched by the Rams, but in the passing game, they did put too much pressure on Jared Goff. I think when you look at this course and win situation coming in, not necessarily disrupting Nick foles because Nick foles wasn't playing great, but he's getting used to playing football. Again, coming off an ACO injury, it takes a minute to get to your old cell there in Philadelphia, which is a tough environment to play there too. And to just like most of the teams within that division. But at one and two, Minnesota Vikings can afford to drop another one with Green Bay Chicago plan as well as they have. Carolina at home too, in one against the giants who are one in three, and I would just wonder how many more games we're going to go through this before the giants realized that they should have drafted Sam darnold. Well, I think that they realize they should have drafted Sam darnold, but they were not going to do. They're going to be stubborn and they were gonna play the New York favorite game manning this manning that he's a made man. He didn't want to do it a new general manager coming in and doing exactly what the last general manager and a head coach did by mcadoo by benching, Eli manning, essentially given him a ticket out of town. The new general manager didn't want to put himself in that position. Travis where he drafts a quarterback in sensually since a note to ally manning by saying this is pretty much your last chance. But a you're out of here. They didn't want to do that. So he took, say, calm, Barkley to safe, pick for him. He now could say, look, I got ally, but this year coming up, they'll be going after just in her from Oregon. I promise you that. Battle of Texas teams the Texans in Houston, hosting the Cowboys. The Cowboys are two and two and Raj of the Cowboys win this game. Amend under it and your boy, Jason GARRETT'S get an extension. I wish I could talk. Here's my message to the Cowboys being a cowboy fan, be pictured gentlemen. We cannot afford to win this game. We need to do everything we can to make sure we'd lose this game because we cannot afford to be over three hundred at this point in the season and give Jason Garrett a vote of confidence. Let's go out there and lose. Let's go. It's so funny when you look at the Houston Texas day to have been in games this year and just lose by touch now, feel type situation. They're not getting blown out of games or anything, but when they're not applying the type of pressure that they have in a pass from a defensive standpoint, they're gonna lose games, Shawn, Watson, still learning how to play quarterback. Another guy who's coming off an ACO injury of a year ago, then you swift, you flip to the Dallas Cowboys running the football, just run the ball. Man don't even don't even try to throw the ball just trying to ball you Zeki. Oh, Elliot, thirty five times your nephew, Michael Thomas in the saints, Monday night football, the Redskins and the saints that weird game to open against Tampa feels like it's a long time ago. They've looked really good since then they have. They've gotten it turned around and he's looked really good. Catching a football from drew Brees. He's gonna have a tall order going up against Josh Norman quarterback from the Washington Redskins. I'll be interested to see how that matchup goals. We'll be tuned in for that one because I think my nephew get the best Josh. But what do I know? I never played the position. What do you know? What does key? No. All right. The dodger was saying that damn noise peak is getting them a nerves. Well, you gotta pull back to pigskin sometimes it's gonna make some noise whip around y'all. Gonna have Pete how Fronton his building. Dodgers will be near, oh, behind Hyun. Jin Ryu last night, Clinton Kershaw going tonight. We'll get into that.
