Barstool Rundown - February 5, 2020

"The I it's January. NOPE federal. Yes I asked. You is like get rundown presented by Philips. NORELCO was with US unbelievable the week down Miami for the big game the Super Bowl now. It's overhead. Just say it. They don't WanNa do so won't but parcells say fill their Oakland. One Blade was keeping US looking good all week long. It's it's it's the only tool that lets you. Trim edge share any length of hair. Say Pat Shave in a single pass head to Phillips dot com slash. NORELCO Barstool to save five dollars off the one blade. It's called Marshall Phillips Dot COM slash Oracle Barstool philps arnold goal. They are rising along the wrong of brands. You have to support. If they're great to us all right I was hoping carapace this will be here. I don't know where he is. Mu Bats trade disgusting cash. So Ah what essentially happened. They offer them like what the ten years for three fifty. He came back twelve or four fifty so they're causing that fifty. Yeah so they're saying ah some people who are defending. I guess the Red Sox well he didn't want to be there. He came out to the site today. said he did listen. I've never liked ownership the ship group. But mookie betts is clearly what top three top five players in baseball. Yeah you're the Red Sox and he's twenty six. You're not some twenty six six small market team. You groom. It's just you what are we. What are we the fucking marlins? I don't get this deal at all. Except it's always has been about the money for the red SOx ownership they're the ones who put faulk Jimmy luxury tax. They don't WanNa pay more. I mean I'm I'm about to go to things Kris Bryant like they don't WanNa pay it because it keeps getting keeps going up. I think every single year you're in the penalty as it. You don't want to pay the fine if you're small market team but when you're making so much money right and you nickel and dime your fans for everything you have to do it and I was going to bring up when the Red Sox won the first world series. They'd one since one thousand nine hundred eighteen and they had Jimmy Fallon on the field. Vilma seen favorite who that fever pitch. Try Barrymore Yeah every everything about the ownership now. They've won so that certainly eases what they do. But they're carpetbaggers. They always have been there here not because they love the Red Sox the here because they love them on in it's disgusting you can't raise prices in charge fifty dollars for a beer and when you have a homegrown superstar trade him. So what did you get out of the deal. Don't understand aspects that's it. How many ownership groups how many owners are are in it for the love of the team and not the love of money no combo so if you look at Like the Patriots Zeros Answer No. I don't agree with that. I feel like zero zero. I I feel like we've asked a question. How many ownership groups are in it for the love of team and not love of no I? I think there are some. I think there's there's got like Barbara and mark you bog craft grew up going to Patriot games like he's a Patriot Fan. I doubt matters if you're on the air I'm trying to think of who else like what other owners I'm not a red sox all like I think like you take the chiefs like the hunt though they grew up into it right right so I signed huge steel stocks. Fan here because our analytics telling us that these three hundred fifty million dollars and forty million dollar contracts contracts or Albatross for any team more money Nobel no because at one guy in the sport but yeah. I agree with that but the way baseball set up. They don't care how much my billionaire owners who have unlimited money spent. I don't care if they make ten billion or eight billion care because of the luxury tax and how keeps going up. Ah Yeah totally. That's when it comes right but and I guess return but again. That's John Henry. God knows what he bought the Red Sox for but I guarantee you he he has made like a hundred extra turn on whatever he bought it for so if you are missing one hundred million verse Fifty Billion GonNa Make. I don't fucking mm care but they're still going Jones still going to run it like a business. They're still Jones. Anybody loves numbers that we don't want to go over all right fine but then you can't nickel down the fences with breads by believe the highest tickets in Major League baseball. They charge the most for beers building. Well Ah they renovated they do everything. The rights areas. What did you guys get in trade? You don't talk. You don't have a microphone Mike. What they're talking? Where's Tommy what the fuck? Where is everybody? I'm right here from Mississippi to make Alex do go and pitching prospect. That has a one hundred one mile on our sinker. That's the wasn't he good. So are you okay with this deal. Yeah it was necessary. I mean like I'm not happy about losing mookie Betts but the trade was necessary yes and just for money no so like the David price thing was money like they had to get under the luxury tax. They are now. mookie betts like they've been trying into recycling or sign him to an extension for three years and he wants to be a free agent. He wants to make the most money which I don't blame them for. He's earned that right The red talks obviously had evaluation. And mookie Betts had one of himself. They're pretty far apart so they knew that they were going to lose them to free agency. And what the Red Sox got in this trade is more valuable than what they would have gotten in terms of compensation draft pick so they had to do. It was just pay him the most though what he wants. Because I think you're you want to be in a position where you're bidding against yourself like if right now mookie. Betts can only negotiate with the red SOx or before the trade and he wanted four hundred and twenty million over twelve years which you pay him through for the next twelve years that is through his eight thirty nine season. You'RE GONNA be paying him thirty five million dollars a year but if you trade him get something for him and then you let him go to free agency then and he's GonNa have a market which is not going to be huge like there's only so many teams that can afford mookie Betts and actually have the need for mookie Betts so once he sees other teams offers. It's going to be less than twelve years for twenty so you can get him for less legal ways. COME BACK TO BOSTON. I think that there's a chance no way there's no no see the difference between lesser. Is that like they made him an insulting offer and it was bitter awesome made a sick. DVD for lesser true. And like there was something there. There's no way mookie went very good chance they don't think they're going to the dodgers. There's there is a twenty five percent chance that there is no twenty five percent chance that's obviously saying it's not likely but it's a wotton percent chance like is not crazy. That's us in resigning. While he was not well he was under contract. Kept my point is the trading him actually increases of resigned. It makes more sense for them to make an accompanying moving to go out to. outfielder is like eighty percent of him for fifty. The player doesn't exist so let me ask. You may not core. How much did did doctor creepy? And I'm bringing that back. Yeah by the Red Sox for do you know. I don't remember it was like I don't know yeah. Set it on her million and what is their seven seven hundred million seven hundred million probably worth three billion now all right. That's my fucking point. Seven million there were three point. Two billion so fucking pay. The Guy is right right so it's not about the total dollars. It's about the years who cares about your luxury tax. No it's not but if you're if you're studying you're paying too much at the end. Who Cares about the luxury tax? It's not about that you you could have gotten under the luxury entry tax and kept Lewke bets at the same time. How David Price Tag? Line trek to the coaches Ryan. Jason Heyward will be with just took price so they can get. That's right luxury tap. No no it's not because the angel's average wouldn't have got price on his correct. No Joe Benigno contract on their their teams. It would've trade if the red SOx eight the same amount of money that they did for him to go to the dodgers there are other teams that would've taken price and you could have. Non Tendered Jackie Bradley. You're under the luxury trade. My point is this the red sox that what we had seven hundred million to three point two billion pretty good return turn on vast share. They print money. They have the most expensive seats the most expensive beers the march they are one of the most popular lucrative teams in sports when when you have a homegrown. MVP and you have over Pam. You fucking over Pam. Yeah you get stuck with a bill. That stinks then fine. That's the price of owning the Boston. Red sox shirt I I mean I'm not so that's the thing is four twenty over twelve years is thirty five million a year. I'm willing to give him ten years three fifty but I'm not paying him until he's thirty nine at thirty five million a year. That's just irresponsible like from a baseball standpoint. But you're not you're not gonNA cripple yourself lines. And so for twelve years he wanted yes so if you yeah but it's fine if you have eight good years on twelve year contract. That's still a pretty good controversy. Great you've paid for the start unless there's not like that that's what it is and it's not yours not small marquis. That's my problem. Do you have a homegrown guy who the fans Hans Love the facelift. Who said he still has yet? But that's the right smell to it. There's no salary cap in baseball. Obviously but there is like a soft cap where where you run into problems like they have right now but his luxury tax seven million. You like you rich owner have to pay right but it's more than that like one who's picks right. Yes you're drafting drop like if you go over the luxury tax for X. amount of years consecutively then so you get taxed on so like right now. If they went they went over this year. They'd have to pay the two hundred and twenty million that is their payroll plus one hundred million in penalties. Plus your draft picks drop so like that. That sucks the money like you can write a check for one hundred million yet back the one eyed. Bandit he's GonNa fucking you know charge handicap. Recap people an extra three thousand bucks to sit was way to get the money. Yeah you know he that guy that teams out of the picture they I know. I I know those ox warning I know I know leukaemia cheap chipped in at the end with the last. Let's Go Red Sox News I. The Red Sox Warner was like the craziest part of that. I'd like to started started here. Let's go let's go red sox. Let's Go Red Sox and I'm looking go go talk. It's it's it is what it is. It's not like A. It's not the best case scenario. But I mean you get a chance to reset and and they're probably GonNa suck in twenty twenty but they do put themselves in a position. Assert saying it's not this is not going to be this elongated period of sucking. I guarantee you that was the way that the fucking payroll. The Red Sox beer price of the ticket price. Like they're gonNA they're gonNA punt on twenty twenty to go back to having this window of dominant you're right the same exact log. When Cubs Trade Kris Bryant? Under the exact same circumstances Kris Bryant wishes. He was as good as smokey best. What I'm saying they're going to trade a MVP in this private so that they can get on the luxury tax and they can't pay everyone the lesson here? Ears don't draft well draft. Well then you gotta pay everyone. That's really the problem prospects or continue with the same and things okay great crusade. I'm really just been on like a tour of informing people. That don't understand like what happened. It's very simple. Oh like one you like. Lay It all out. I do forget about the draft picks when it comes to the luxury tax. That does matter big time.

You're picking on big money line hogging favorites. Who Cares if I if I go? I lose two and a half units if they lose people already but you know this is a bad look at some level. It's all wrong like they disagree so much boy. 'cause like you making things a thousand times fucking worse wha everyone takes ball and go into the other room. I didn't like it. It's IT'S A two party system. Everybody gets their turn when the other party is got their turn. You make it worry you make it harder to get your turn but I like all the people like the people who are like Dow's boss move. Then I saw some people saying that that was technically a crime and she should go to jail. Well that's how it is like it's everything everyone I I do like. She had to tear it in sections. Yeah the that it was. It was nice paper I was GonNa Kevin Because I guess he broke the news at the mets sale fell through so Jeff Passan having to quote him. It's awesome Hatton Ham. So the mets fans want this guy. Yes Bali why. I don't know why every team that loses a hate the owner. I've sat he doesn't he just spends Greg. It's Gaydos he just not spend who's got traded form. But they are they gonNA resign. Stroman Stroman Stroh show and the data for stroke. WHO's the guy with the long hair? Whose is there a mess up the right to grow on that staff? WHOA nobody Kevin Out? But I'm not a Jeff Wilpon and watched him die with the team. He's one of the best owners in the game. They were in the world. That's the most delusional the mets act like they haven't been relevant in one hundred years there in the world series not too long ago. They make the playoffs. This guy I sit with him. I watch now Kevin. Is that guy. Nothing's ever good enough for him. He is Frankie. They give him my cashpoints. Tommy you just a couple minutes ago. You're railing on the red SOx ownership who've just WANNA world series. There's a couple years ago. Yeah Well Jeff Wilpon would not let mookie betts walk. What did you think Jeff Wilpon? It was a fantastic human being. I mean he brought us in like it was his home He gave us everything we needed. Sat with US watch the game he had. He had all the other games on on his IPAD. Making sure he was. He was watching very intently. He was cared about it. He said you're trying to bring his team. The Red Sox trade ownership groups Wilpon for Dr Creepy Straight Up. No questions asked I make that trade. They're just family family. Men to John McCall. Kevin should be able to trade owners. If seventy five percent fan base agreed to it. It's not fair right now because I know Wilpon I've heard enough enough. Kevin is Kevin. The roof is always fallen. Kevin's head no matter what you could will bad you. Who's wanting London Club? Kevin and chlorine you live on the rundown Dave is saying the wilpon humans alive. I can't remember you your guys argument it. Can you say it real quick they are the cheapest the Nazri scam in the history of the world. That's wrong were the great Ted Kaczynski another Great Michigan. What else would you want you? DEGROM syndergaard. The show those guys. I've never heard their own the nets. Yeah the he's like you guys are treated for Stroman and you have all these these pictures. You haven't paid any of them right. You paid syndergaard yet on the phillies now. Because we just don't WanNa pay guy you know. I don't know what he's saying this one of these. They suspend kids show. And then we have guys like you know you WANNA assess British. Get hurt they get insurance money paid as long. They signed suspects they signed. The RED SOX wouldn't pay Sesa but we need the midst up to the plate says woman. I don't know where Kennedy's disappeared bad because it pretty much means that every time. Oncoming ransom about the mets. I don't listen because I should know complain. We know that he's never happy. Appreciate what puns cheap very achieve well. They weren't cheap when they're all red. Copper Franken what was in the what was in the suite. Sushi different types of roles pizza burgers. Oh unlimited plates at shake shack. XXX different types of beer here. Dan Shaggy Chef. Cook Up. Whatever you want you say? Don't go in Sircar come in. The suite was in the hallway in this week. Don't lie to me. It was in the beginning cart. It was desert station nation and they rolled the desert cutting through the noise. Had its own desert station. He lives in the house. Basically in the sweet walk doors is a library. Sorry there's a spiral staircase rich Mahogany Wood books seriously and the House has a desert station stations in the house. Oh yeah this lungi this guy you said I want oversold. He would have sent somebody out on a boat caught it fillet. Had It for you by sitting. Are You thinking about a dessert station in the house. I I want to go to this place now. faulk this Missouri coach. I'm not sure who is alleged Ally drink wits from upstate. Okay so a three restore recruit is watching. The press conference apparently didn't know that the kid would Missouri. I guess they don't tell you I and he goes bananas And whoa if their crew so apparently the comment was down to Alabama and Missouri which is a three star Alabama has signed a three star and like ten years bites. This coach is very excited to get the guy. Money name to understatement statement. That was exciting. Goes all around the facility. Can't believe I just if I was watching this Missouri Fan. I look at this guy in his face. You can just tell when coach has it and when he doesn't just by looking at him he doesn't that doesn't look like he's got it does he. How many five search you guys get us? Well we got Jaycoe Selo from Stanford one of the best quarterback the fact that that kid Castillo still plenty how long has he been putting in December the Stanford. Now he's GonNa play for how many how many five so we got six four stars four stars no five stars this time around a couple in roster we've got a couple of on the roster check check little Russia check we've got we've got a couple in the NFL over five star this reaction is just can't instill confidence being that excited over three star. I mean I get to the fan base to say this is. How passionate are coaches? Yeah and it just looked. Goofy is really goofy That's the rundown wilpon cheap. No they're not jared says yeah. They have a dessert station in their house. In the in the Wilpon WanNa let an MVP walk like that. That much I know that the mets were like involved on like a big time for agent. There was a New York. I mean they extended sespe. But we're watching staff that's all they Zik extended Jacob. DEGROM is like a big. What does that mean like the red sox able to extended? Yeah for sure bet. So like like many Chato. They weren't people who don't like them like you're being Kevin like oh the extended to grow well that counts. Yeah counts but it was. Take a look at what the mets gave Jacob degrom compared to what the Yankees just pay Garrett Cole Garrett Cole like it let's just say hypothetically Yankees I know but like top tier talent right so Jacob degrom walks in free agency agency. He doesn't want an extension. You now need to replace Jacob. DEGROM didn't walk. This is a hypothetical question. Dave following here Jacob degrom doesn't want want an extension he walks he signed somewhere else. Do the mets pay Garrett Cole. The Yankees Patriarch. Yeah they probably would I know Jeff Wilpon. I know he's he he doesn't let himself get you. See our conversation on the radio yesterday. Would you if you had the money would you buy them. That's like the wilpon like hey we want to know. See my I issue. I talked about this before hypothetical. Obviously we have nowhere near nobody to buy. Team is convoluted when you're a real hard like maybe hockey But I'm not gonNA against the Patriots against the Red Sox. I'm not gonNA root against it would be a national league team. You only have to rudy. The Red Sox said I don't know the the odds of the red SOx lining up against the mets in the world. Maybe one hundred. I'd maybe do a football because I want to call the plays but I wouldn't do it in other sports. Got It so you would be like more of a like a business than a passion project. Yeah and I won't buy team for business. I'd buy it for like passion just to walk around so you talk. I would one hundred plus why Botswana. That'd be like a great pickup line for me. What what my dad owns sports? Hey Jerry the. GMC Cold Burns. You were the owner. Now's the GM of a of a baseball all team that I'm not gonNA like make every decision GM Sandy. You'd be the Jerry Jones. I like Jerry Jones. He'd he'd be like the whipping boy. Decision decisions yeah bad decisions decisions like. Give me me a job that like. I don't do anything out here. Man It'd be like if I was the assistant. Gm It's like you got the president of baseball operations you get the GM they get the assistant. GMC What does that guy actually do. But I'm still assistant of a sports team. I can't believe the red talks were bought for only seven hundred million and now three points to call the little thing called inflation. Fuck while fixed up fenway quite a bit. Yeah yeah now. They won't pay for mookie alright.

Five years ago and crane kenney and julian green are just drunk with power and just like it's bleachers what i have no idea they're drunk with power. It's crazy or the ushers drunk with power.

He's like i don't care hear about the fights. I just wanted me to cups. I'm i've heard rumors about. This is one of my list of grievances. I don't have to be honest when i go on radio you like the skycam. You only ate it yeah. I don't think we use it correctly but i like it. It's like the beginning of the fight is the best part you can see anything. It's i don't like just you you poison the well on that oh yeah because i saw his you cannot see the punch you also my list grievances even save you tweeting like figure it out. I would've started the fight by now. If you had been sitting next to me. We've been sitting out with you know it wasn't me but we've been in that exact spot half no they could start there waiting on purpose. No they were waiting because they couldn't get everyone in. They were saying they they were gonna. Give till that time time it was a predetermined plan. On how long do the the whole internet broke you mean. The whole internet like people couldn't log into watch the fights so so people bought it. That's not what i was putting. That's not why you're getting that information. I was told yeah they're just gonna go like i. It wouldn't matter what at that was the time no matter what so they literally like the everyone bought the fight and couldn't get in it is different while i was watching watch on t._v. I bought paper like i bought the on demand right. You were fine. I was watching is different perspective watching. There's like or at the very least actually give him credit not not much it. We should turn on the chaos. It'll be funny for people who live our lives. Yes i agree watching like migraine relationship yeah yeah i agree with that. The skycam wasn't i think it needs work on when it's used during the fight but like a knockout would would be a six skycam but you'd have to do it as a replay. That's fun yeah yeah. That's fine. I agree with you. There has been around in billions ever seen a skycam sudoku yeah one of the yeah that's i've never yeah when they go in the middle touch clubs they sometimes you sky touch but not like the belt. We watched the first ten pens on the fight skycam. Okay so that shit. I agree with you there. Thank the coming from corner to question such or something but the best part of the fight is the first ten seconds as you can see it but the sky cam technology if used correctly i think is enhanced imagine a <hes> like getting a ring girl falling from skycam replace right. That's fine like there's no for you. You agree that skycam even use a correctly is a good adult <hes> not really. I think the like maybe a refund was yeah. Might i've been used correctly.

Hedging The Mets

"Wanders it's been a big week for New York baseball first. You have the Yankee Signing Garrett Cole to the biggest contract ever for a major league pitcher and across town a a huge shakeup for the mets some of the best news that I've ever heard as a fan of the New York mets and that is that we are doing to be getting a new ownership group in the next five. The the guy who's coming into by the mets Steve Cohen is being hailed as a savior for a franchise whose fans have long been fed up with ownership to end. Jeff Wilpon the nickname or Fred. Jeff coupon have been aided owners by the New York mets for years on today the athletics in joins us to discuss. Just that's how bad it's been for mets fans and if Cohen's arrival could finally help the team compete with the boys in the Bronx her from wondering on the athletic. I'm beat the Davidson and I'm under SCELZO. It's Thursday December twelfth and this is the lead it felt like something great. There is something of the emotion and because God was. This isn't a story. We're GONNA be the athlete it stays with a- as most of us have found out the hard way getting into debt is easy and getting out is hard especially especially if your credit score isn't great thankfully now there's upstart dot com the revolutionary lending platform.

That's that's absurd dot com slash lead upstart dot com slash lead. Well Tim thank you so much for joining us. How are things in Queens right now? Things are starting to heat up a little bit In terms of the hot stove some of the baseball season and for the mets in particular. So it's it's moving a little bit quicker than than some off seasons recently. We got some pretty big news and mets land Last week. Tell us what happened. Yes so on Wednesday. My colleague at the athletic. Ken Rosenthal reported that Sterling Equities the group that owns the maps. That's and his. You know basically synonymous with Fred and Jeff Wilpon were negotiating to sell a larger stake in the team. One of their minority investors Steve Cohen a a hedge fund manager who was born a mets fan on Long Island and all the sudden Steve Cohen is now reportedly buying eighty percent of the mets Bart. Like I can't wrap my brain around it because I'm hearing other mets fans just now thinking the world is now opening up for the mets. Ah Cohen bought a four percent. Stake of the team in two thousand and twelve for twenty million dollars are further reporting elucidated that he is in negotiations to purchase as much as an eighty percent stake in the mess of over the next five years. which point kind of phased out of will ownership of the team right? And as you mentioned the mets have been controlled by Fred Wilpon and his son Jeff for a really long time and let's be honest. They've frustrated a lot of fans every every major league baseball team every professional sports team if the tone for the organization is set by the ownership group but I think few teams are as reflective of their owners as the mets are with the wilpon but it seems like these things always happen to this team and what I always say whenever there's a bunch of bad stuff stuff happening to the same team over a number of years point to the ownership and that's the case with the mets and it's the reason we always go. Oh what's going on with the mets. Antolin blame them for the littoral L. Dumpster Fire. That was laugh. Ridden Jeff Wilpon are known for meddling in the day to day operations of the franchise more so than just about any other major league owners I am. That's that includes you know sitting in in the manager's office before and after Games sometimes that includes making decisions of it should be left up to the baseball people. They've hired nixing trades that that general managers wanted to make over financial concerns or otherwise entertain. Give us a little background on Fred Fred Wilpon but We're playing pretty good ball. I mean we're getting some excellent pitching the hitting isn't as timely at the moment. But I thank all our kids so Fred Wilpon is a Brooklyn native group any normal Brooklyn Dodgers Fan actually played high school baseball with sending Colfax facts so is still tight with Sandy Koufax he made his money in real estate fans still dislike the idea of being owned by a guy who aw unabashed in how much dodgers fan he was growing up City field itself is modeled after ebbets field. Wilpon went to games as a kid It has the Jackie Robinson Simpson Rotunda rather than something made after a met with the field open. There was a lot of a lot of thought among the fan base that it didn't represent mets history in a way they were looking for. And what's the main issue that mets fans have had with the wilpon in particular in this decade The FAN base has soured on ownership because the mets are not a spending commensurate with their market. Right Jeff Wilpon. WHO's nicknames or Fred Jeff? Jeff coupon have been hated owners by the New York mets for years on now the mets to be fair start to spend a little bit more in recent years but they continue due to be basically a mid to small market team in a large market. Think the well ponds are bad on it and I think they have. They have to get rid of their wilpon. 's get better on her so that they can start spending money in the right way in the twenty in the two thousand and ten ends the mets have seen their payroll increase the least on a percentage basis compared to everyone else in major league baseball. It's gone up seventeen percent at a time where you know teams in their own division. The nationals for instance are paying two hundred percent more on their payroll this decade than last. So I think there's a lot of criticism from the fan base. The ownership is not willing to invest type of financial resources. Necessary for them to compete is incredibly frustrating. Over the years that the New York mets may have been a piece maybe two pieces away and the team would not go out and spend and content on an in annual basis the way they want to and while the Wilpon have not been spending the team has also not winning that budge. Yes so since two thousand and two the mets have made three postseason appearances in two thousand six when they lost in the two thousand fifteen when they went to the world series called the haven't been to the world series since two thousand and the mets are on their way back so there has been some intermittent intermittent success. But you just look at the last decade. They've had seven losing seasons in the last ten very middle of the pack and the mets also kind of have this sheen of like the lovable loser to the point. Where they they have their own Hashtag that's synonymous with with failing spectacularly? Ll Mets I think it's the sense of the the friend who doesn't know how to get out of his own way that's so it's Lewis Casio injuring himself by stepping on a glove on the dugout steps to to pile on Louise. It's him. Drop to lose a game. The Yankees Dot com breath earlier. This year may called a press conference to announce that you went is desperate respite. While recuperating from having multiple surgeries on his heels stepped in a hole suffered an accident on his ranch in Port Saint Lucie and suffered ankle fractures which meant that he was going to miss the rest of the season. And of course there's Bobby Baena day which has also become a bit of a mets punchline. Nine you don't know about Bobby Day do you bobby. Bonilla Day is July first of every year which on which day the mets a seven figure check to Baena. This goes back to the year. Two thousand where they bought out the remainder of bananas contract. He's going to make an additional thirty thirty billion dollars up until when he's sixty five That's a pretty good deal for for bobby though. I just going to pay him a million dollars a year for the next twenty years. Yes yes it's that kind of Absurdity strikes trench is seemingly more than now and then of course you know the most notable example of wilpon mismanagement of the mets is their involvement almond with Bernie madoff. The made off scandal has cast a cloud over the New York. Mets whose owners face a lawsuit over millions in alleged fake profits But talk this off. Season hasn't been new acquisitions as much as what might be sold off the team owners have said they're willing to sell twenty five percent of the ball club to recoup losses. They claim or at the hands of Bernie madoff the wilpon had been investing with Bernie Madoff for a very long time In kind of reading the quote unquote rewards of A lucrative return year over year With made offs investment firm And then win made off when under in two thousand eight When when the House of cards cards Kinda collapsed on him They just haven't been as financially liquid as they were prior to everything going down with made off and just explain to people. What like the scale of what we're talking about? How much money did the mets lose to the mets owners lose in Bernie Madoff Ponzi scheme? The report at the time was that will on May of lost up to seven hundred million dollars because of Bernie madoff a massive amount of money that we're talking about even on the scale of professional. Sports owners are swimming being in different financial waters than your I are of but it's still a huge amount of money in a really impactful amount of money that that's clearly had an influence on the way the mets. That's been run since so did. MLB and then commissioner bud see like ever considered taking drastic action like removing the Wilpon says owners or war forcing them to sell because of their involvement with made off. I don't think it ever really got far down the line in terms of happening I think because of the close relationship between Seelig and will that Major League baseball was going to do everything it could to keep. The wilpon is in control of the mets Major League baseball itself. Self load the mets twenty five million dollars in late twenty ten. It was willing to kind of swallow the struggles at the Wilpon were going through financially. At that time thinking there was a light at the end of the tunnel for them to kind of resume spending the way that they did prior to everything happening with made off. And there was fallout for the mets on the field. From all of this Bernie madoff not in the starting lineup. But a big player in their team's many financial troubles which led to some of the mets biggest stars being sold opening day. Usually a sell-out was not a hard ticket. Define they started to go downhill bear kind of the bigger freeze and contracts that they had signed remained on the teams books for a few years but basically stopped investing players outside the organization.

Why are the wilpon looking to sell now? One of the reasons the sale is happening now so as it is Is that Fred. Wilpon just turned eighty three At the end of November and so he's trying to secure the long term future of the New York. Mets and there has been some disagreement over. Exactly what would happen Win A wilpon passes away and and how it would be handed down through his family. A Jeff Wilpon. His his son has taken on an outsized role with the team as chief operating officer. He's been really the public face of ownership for a few years now. Fred Wilpon has not spoken publicly in quite a few years. We'll so tell me about Steven Cohen. The guy in line to buy the mets and perhaps the guy in line to be the met Savior sports so I played soccer. I played basketball in high school team. And and just played golf. And that's what you did is a hedge fund manager He was born in great neck. New York grew up a mets fan out. A Long Island started his own Hedge Fund and then in two thousand and thirteen his company was indicted for insider trading breaking news to bring you now the. Sec Is Doing Hedge Fund advisor. Steve a Cohen for failing to supervise Q.. Interesting your employees and prevent them from alleged insider trading. I'm very big news. This is the first formal charges of the SEC. Against Steven Been Cohen. Understand the rules on trading inside information. It's very familiar with rule. Ten B Five Dash One No no not that. You'd have to explain it to me. The firm ended up agreeing to pay a one point. Eight billion dollar fine. His net worth is estimated at more than nine billion dollars by Bloomberg which would make him the wealthiest majority owner in Major League Baseball. If this all comes to pass He's a noted art collector who spent nine figures on multiple pieces of art a singularly including spending more than one hundred and forty million dollars on an Alberto Giacometti Committee sculpture. which is more money than the mets? For instance have ever paid on a single player contract. That was one of my favorite details from your piece and not only. Is that more money than the mets have ever spat aww individual players contract. That's like fifteen million dollars less than their entire payroll. What's last year? So he's spent one hundred fifty. I five million dollars on a Pablo Picasso Painting Picasso mets have only run a payroll north of one hundred and fifty. Five million dollars This past season. That was the first time they ever did that. So if Steve Cohen does come in he would be the richest owner in baseball. And he's known to be a pretty serious mets fan. What impact? What do you think he can have on the organization? We don't know for sure but I think there have been people who have compared it to Steve Balmer coming in and running the Los Angeles Clippers in the NBA. But most of all punked saying hello as clippers. The Paul E. Coli come on the thought that a lifelong fan like this will spend considerably more on the product. Baseball baseball does not have a salary cap. The way other sports do so he could spend as much as he wants to on the on field product. There's also He's also guy who through his work. As a hedge twin manager has embraced the analytical side of things and the mets have been very slow in terms of kind of changing with the current times in baseball and embracing analytics analytics. So the thought is With Cohen on board as the majority owner. They'd be a bit swifter in that area as well. We don't know what it'd be like on a day-to-day basis as if he would have the same kind of imprint. On the day to day activity that the wilpon like to have. But that's that's something kind of have to wait and see until he actually becomes the owner to know another another open. Question is what the mets will do with general manager. Brodie van Wagon He. He was a controversial higher. You know he had never been a GM. He was an agent before or he had represented some mets players. Do you have a sense of whether the sale will be in that brody loses. His job is kind of the same dynamic where your general manager working for the owner. Who did not hire you? That you've got to win him over you're not his guy and so I think bandwagon face that same dynamic down the line with Cohen. How how of mets fans reacted to the possibility of a change in ownership as if they won the world series Steve Cohen? Our Savior Steve Cohen. Colwyn we bow to the Steve Cohen. We love you. You have swooped down to save us. From the Wilpon 's goodwill plans had been the boogeyman in this franchise for so long everything that was wrong with the mets was attributed to the wilpon. That you you know if presented with the option of the Wilpon the known entity on one hand versus whatever's behind the curtain. Whatever is behind door number one mets fans would choose the unknown Insead Cohen so the fact that Cohen is as wealthy as he is I think exacerbates the excitement for stands stand the thought that he would be willing to send financially with the Wilpon. Haven't been able to recently. There's light at the end of the tunnel for mets fans. I think this is probably more exciting for them than any single single free agent would have been in this off season right no more numerous brown paper bags at city. You never know for sure. Well Tim thank. Thank you so much for joining us at. It'll be exciting to see what happens going forward anytime. Thank you for having me a step. The Band Green the rain. Your brain your life here.

Wipe Downs, The Esiason's Pediatrician And An Update

"It has geo for a little while ago and he didn't have any left Dan. There's a little late now. I have one of those things in my office. If you want to grab grab one of those for okay now when you wipe things down in the morning just the spot. You're going to sit out for the warm I don't to wipe that down. Now you just wipe for the for the the voice keyboards and then Geo comes in. And does his own wipes you wipe for them. Gio wipes firm self. You don't wipe for yourself and you don't wipe for Jerry.

He slapped me off to another guy did okay. He is the head off sloughed off. You didn't get sloughed off. He's not going to do it himself. He's the boss. He's the owner. Yeah I understand sometimes you get clients technician on it. No no it's all good. I'm kidding it's all good. Yeah we gotta we gotta work that thing. Yesterday ended up being a hectic day. Yes so Things calmed down a little bit right more health and inside the body household. Then I will be Going full bore with the brand new toilet with the day that goes front to back some more health inside the genealogy yesterday everybody got it set for me except for me somehow knock on surrounded. She's she's got a foot issue now. She's walking around with a walking boot. How the dogs? The dogs are fired. It's like old but they were firing firm mastery. The over their daughter wasn't sick for birthday. What she was going? Yeah yeah she bearing for the germ free you could take you open it up and you wipe in your stuff down and stuff like that and wear gloves and everything yeah yeah. We're at the pediatrician. Yesterday on her birthday she doesn't understand how many people are. At the pediatrician. God it was looked like a tired. Busload was like going to the circus. Doctors be making tons of Dole right now right you would think I guess who knows. But everybody's sick. I've averred these positive flu tests. This winter have been a little as you were saying so you don't listen to the show out there at all. Well thought that I don't want to instead. I have headphones on preparing all the audio that we're going to hear during the update can go both audio. The new talk screwed this whole all segment. How's the how's the pediatrician? Not always sick. Stand that super duper like immune must have those really good masks. That were sold out right right. No I did not have a mask yesterday but she did wash your hands stated Satan distance in remember taking the kids to our pediatrician. Dr Gilbert Dick Really Gillick Guild Dick and he's a great guy. Great Dude Right. Kids always had strep throat. One hundred percents strep throat. We bring in government is got strep throat. It didn't even check culture. No while they do eventually they do like. He's been around for so long he never ever they. They love Dick Right He. He was never sick and there were kids with runny noses and Snot all over the place and people screaming and yelling and in coughing and sneezing bring them Dick. I Love Dick Bring them to kill Dick and basically Everybody had strep throat. Wow now did you ever transmitted lil miss onto teammates. I'm sure yes so. You infected an entire locker room at some point I'm sure that somewhere along the line. Either I was infected acted or every team goes through like flu like symptoms. How many times I know yeah and they send you home they keep you away stay adding well? Sometimes flu like symptoms anthems could be also from party and then of course you know who the guy is and how long that flu like symptoms is GonNa last all right see you got all right. It's so spring training workouts. Obviously right around the corner pitchers and catchers for the mets and Yankees hitting the field tomorrow and as we get ready for the new season Major League. Baseball reportedly mulling these major changes to the postseason format. Which would begin twenty twenty two among the highlights? You would go from ten to fourteen teams for the playoffs. Three Division winners four wildcard teams now per league and then the team with the best record in each league at the buy into the division series remaining division winners would get to choose their opponent for the wild card round and some sort of prime sometime. TV event which. I I don't know personally. I think that's kind of interesting if I know that baseball traditionalist were written their hair traditional. I think it's great baseball. Baseball traditionalists didn't like the initial wildcard. Either I get Bob Costas Online. Let him determine the JOE heinous. He'll WANNA go back to the world series no playoffs. That's got a right. You got to run it by him to make sure it's okay. Yeah I to me when when people say that this waters down the regular season I think is the exact opposite. I think it breathes life into the regular season because there's so many other markets that will be involved that weren't otherwise things I have have about this one. Do you think that they're bringing this out. Because of the. Yes Houston thing distraction. First thing I say yes. Point one hundred percents route. ooh Let's make it as crazy as we can so we can get off the Houston subject under percents. Okay and number two trevor. Bauer came out and says you know he basically ripped it didn't rob Manfred. Who hasn't he ripped into at this point the only person on earth? Es ripped into his himself. Yeah he's just totally does it's just see just crushes everybody. Well that's good for you. Know we always get on athletes not telling you you know what they feel. And we're we're getting a guy that's telling you what he feels. Yeah I mean I just don't think that was a little bit of a strong call. The joke okay. Yeah I know it's a strong reaction to like an idea that was floated out there. They can make more money by you. Know more teams going to the play offs. And then you can use that as a you know leverage for your next contract. Why would you want that? That's why I'm all in favor of expanding the NFL playoffs by adding two more teams and only having one team have abide. I just like what Major League Baseball is trying to do here right now instead of two teams having to buy I love him another playoff game. I'm thinking about that as I feel like. There's I like the way that the NFL playoffs all right now. And there's so many teams involved already. I feel like it's not as necessary whereas baseball if the baseball regular season season so many teams are settlement law right there were the NFL. I feel like there's of course there's those teams that stink that we know we're GONNA stink. That are in it. I still feel like there's a lot of markets that are involved blow a two week seven hundred. Yeah in the hunt and we need. We don't need it in the NFL at feel like in baseball needs a little I would. If they did this I would like them to shorten the regular season is by a week or two. We know that ain't happening. But that's what I that's for sure. I think the reason I liked the what they're proposing because you've just resigned to the fact that all these leaks are looking. Anad is looking at reducing the regular season load from eighty two to seventy eight tournament at midseason tournament. I I don't know what the hell that's what I like the idea of essentially call out your opponents. I want this team. Yeah but don't you think don't you think that internally these leagues are all learning something about themselves and they're looking at trends in there watching attendance figures and they're hearing complaints from fans and things of that nature that maybe you know. Obviously not maybe well we. We don't see those things so they're reacting to things that they're hearing in their offices that's their job right so let's try to improve the game. Let's try to make it more are interesting. Let's try to keep more fans engaged. And maybe who knows. Maybe a team like Oakland or the raise make it to the playoffs under this new format and gives a lower lower left paid team a chance to make the playoffs a little bit more consistently each and every year big statement from Jeff Wilpon yesterday where basically said nothing thing just to let you know about the whole failed sale. Would Steve Cohen. I I love the the lead into this right. Spring Training begins on behalf of ownership. We'd like to share more information on. Why the proposed transaction has ended however due to confidentiality nondisclosure agreements? Were unable to do so at this confidentiality NONDISCLOSURE nondisclosure agreements only apply to Steve Cohen. That's it everything else is you. Could you could talk about it. I don't know why it doesn't but here's the thing. So Steve Cohn already owns eighty. He percents does. That's right so you wanted to buy eighty percent of the team under the previous way this whole thing was laid out so now they're saying okay. That thing is null and void read now. The team is truly up for sale. And it doesn't require the five-year buying period. That's the case was and Steve Cohen. Just ed up the next Ed In twelve percent more. And let's go yeah. Apparently things went so south with those two. That doesn't seem like a possibility. And I guess he turned off Major League Baseball and some of the other owners his tactics during this thing so it doesn't seem like a viable A viable candidate any longer. So that's probably why and he's just GonNa sit back and hopefully somebody swoops in gives four billion dollars for the mets big return on his own. Ask you this question. Yeah it goes back to the initial sale and how people are saying. Oh this is all Jeff wilpon fault. A Jeff Wilpon Swab. It's Steve Cohn can't be approved by other Major League baseball owners. How is that the wilpon fault? I don't believe that it is that part of it isn't no so then that that was fake news. It might have been. Yeah I mean or made those fake news said make new sad. Yeah I don't know it's one of these stories that there's so much stuff out there that I don't know what's true or not. Yeah so but what you said sure. It's not the wilpon fault but I don't know what advantage rob Manfred said in his statement at the owners who do you want to believe that up to the consumer right. Jeff Bezos has got so much just on the buy it. Yeah sure it was. He Care Can I flash back to last week and then apply to something from yesterday. If you'd like to so Jerry's familiar Edwin D as were already down in Florida working out last week. This was the day so you were out. Actually we've had this so they both spoke with us and y one on one Here's familiar on the two thousand. Twenty outlook is the best. We'll be right around the building if we we everybody's healthy. I think we're going to do something especially this year. Okay great very spring training. It's not so much much about what he's saying. We'll get to that in a second. Then here's D.. As on his off season work with Hall of Famer Pedro Martinez told me. If I guy routine Ryan you know. I got a Guam arm potential. I tried to face everything while he told me on. Everything is going really good. So both very clear. Concise understandable answers right. No no there's nothing it all makes sense sure well-spoken yesterday arrives spring training officially underway and both guys are back to speaking through the translator later so I want to get to the bottom of this and find out if this is the mets are basically saying listen or all major league teams. We employ a translator. When you're here as part of an official team activity eighty? He will be used because both guys yesterday. We're back to speaking through the translator. And here's Familia on why. He felt the need to lose thirty pounds this winter. I was really overweight. In most seasons I would be around two forty two forty five and so i. I didn't realize that I had gotten that far up. In a way that far away. And then you've got Diaz who Doesn't care what role he's asked to fill or which innings. He's asked to pitch the season helping the team win. So Lewis told me in a certain inning. I'm hoping to doing that as long as the top team now. Admittedly the intricacies of the player translator relationship. How the teams get involved if there's a union reasoning somewhere behind this but I don't know both guys themselves last week? Why don't we just here? They sounded right too. But I you know maybe there are things that are lost in translation. I WANNA I WANNA make sure that there's no mis speak or you know. Put somebody in a bad light because they may say something differently or use a different inflection or something like that all that. It's trust me on that a week ago when they were down there with all their mets gear on. I mean it is what it is. I'M NOT GONNA make a criminal case out of it or anything but I want to hear from these very excited talk to hear from the players. That's all Masahiro Tanaka said. Yes yes what he said through a translator he did okay. Did in which the audio isn't even worth playing because it was a very quickly. Yeah I do feel that way. They basically he was asked. There were multiple questions and eventually they got Sobat theus you said so. They were leading him to a point where he had to agree with see. See I don't know if he had to but it was said the astros cheated when he said yes. I do wish the more I read about this whole thing. They should just take the astros away from Jim Crane or she they should basically take the team away from him him because he had to know what was going on Koi had the no I mean he skated by with that heavy hand in that press conference and it was like. I got just appalled by this whole whole thing. And he put his son in his press rid of Nolan Ryan on Ryan's son Rob Manfred protected him. Because you know he's got to protect the owners and everything else I mean it's that of course I agree with that. I know it's a very difficult thing to do But there's no way that Jim Crane was completely oblivious on their Jim Crane can own a baseball team. Steve Cohen can't apparently were in the Club by club that basically is toward the shreds the integrity of the two thousand sixteen seventeen eighteen possibly one thousand nine seasons pointed to shreds right by code breaker. I don't think they were doing it. I don't know if they were doing it last year. I'm not sure but if you read the Wall Street Journal article that somebody that's disgruntle. That's giving those writers the information mation they gave them. And that makes you believe that this thing was so deep that it had to go to the owner and the owner had to know they had a no take the team away from him. Let's give you yeah right problem solve. Here's the full Tanaka quote. Yes I do feel that way in response to what he said. You'd never know what would have happened but at the same time you can say that might not have happened. It's kind of difficult to say so he didn't exactly go in all in on calling the astros out. Do one of the things I would do. I would take away the world series title. I would add anything yet. Does it shows in a record book that there was a year where nobody won the world series. And why didn't they win. The world's everybody everybody already because because well everybody no official official get the rings back get everything back. They don't deserve it. Yeah I think that's just deserve. I mean everybody knows it's tainted already I mean it just is it's going to always be so you say something didn't happen that happened and also and also also what else does it do it. Also now opposite door for people like Pete rose to want to be reinstated enough and they're using and he and and his group of people are using this as the impetus as to why he should be reinstated. Yeah I understand I know every single does this scandal. That's out there. He tries to get back in. But he's all I mean. This is another one of these things. Just can I ask you a question. He's already all his stops in all the pain. Everybody understands these gang being like salt like what is the difference like rob Manfred goes goes reinstated. Like he's the paying of the world that changes everything. Here's a question I have you and and I don't know the answer to this and I should know the answer this because I am sports talk host but I don't and I'm not afraid to admit when I don't know something it's very far between what never said go ahead go ahead. Who owns cooperstown? Does Major League baseball own cooperstown or is it a separate entity no idea the great question. Don't know as it's a separate entity why can't they put in P.. Rose if they want to. Is He banned from the hall of fame by Major League baseball or is he banned from the hall of fame by Cooperstown. Pete rose in fame is is. It's the baseball hall of fame interest so to baseball hall of fame. It is not the Major League Baseball Hall of a Baseball Hall of fame and museum. That's why that's why can't he go in. Why does he have to? Is there. Like some rule that says as if he is suspended for baseball he cannot get into all fame. Perhaps there is to go to John in New Jersey. What's going on John? Hey what's going on guys up boomer. I just WANNA know tycoons and cousin Brucie's theater for those really dance he gets no. It's actually soupy John John. I'm forty six.

Effectively Wild Episode 1583: The Shift in Conversation

"We. Do. Skies. Spy. Always. Weary. Hello and welcome to episode fifteen, eighty, three of effectively wild fan graphs baseball podcast brought to you by our patriotic supporters. I may a fan graphs and I'm joined as always by Ben Lemberg of the Ringer Ben how are you? Hello not terrible that's good. You're not terrible because you don't work from the mets. That's part of the reason. Ben The much sure did mets today. So I've heard yeah I think we should start by saying the way that the mets midst was unfortunate because you know the bickering between GM's and ownership ish should not detract from like the more important things that mets players are saying and doing to try to bring attention to the way that the team is responding to protests all across. The country. So on the one hand I, always love a good matt saying but on the other hand, the specific nature of this met saying is a pretty big bummer. So then you've been writing all day, would you like me to catch you up on on these mets? Yes please and the League in the sports world as a whole that's not too tall and order I mean. For me but but for anyone who may be has not paid the closest attention I don't know how you could have not really. But what went down in the sports world Wednesday, and then continued into Thursday across leagues in sports but also specifically in baseball, it's been quite a momentous couple of days and sure has been. So yeah, I don't know anyone go to mess this. I'll do my best to summarize simply so that we can talk about the baseball specific parts of it but yesterday the Milwaukee Bucks opted not to play would have been game five of their. Series against the Orlando Magic postseason series against the Orlando Magic in what was originally an inaccurately called a boycott but was in reality of wildcat strike and that decision which was made because the players of Bucks Organization felt that to play playoff basketball in in the wake of yet another officer involved shooting in Kenosha Wisconsin, which is not far from Milwaukee would be a distraction in a moment when we ought not to be distracted and so opted not to play their game and subsequent to that a great many games were called off often at the behest of players To. Shannon sollidarity with the bucks and with black community to deny. A reason to not pay attention to an issue that's much more pressing and I think in a move that in some ways was surprising and encouraging but in its incompleteness was also a bit disappointing Major League Baseball got in on the action in a way that I, think certainly surprised me I with the brewers and then with a number of other teams. So the mariners and padres decided. Not to play yesterday, the mariners unanimously voted not to to play in the padres went along with that the dodgers and the giants didn't play is I mentioned the reds and brewers did not play. I will say that all of those games were subsequently made up as doubleheaders today. So they are technically postponements. A number of other teams were sort of in play as the as the action was. Unfolding in Florida in the NBA bubble but a number of them had time in evening to decide not to play, and we can kinda talk about their decision to take the fields and then today a great number of teams elected not to not to play some of which you know kind of came out proactively some of which came out in drips and drabs but gosh, we can kind of. Go around the horn. So the ROCKIES and d-box decided not to play the Red Sox and bluejays although based on what I saw of the of the weather in Buffalo. I think that they would have faced a weather postponement that was not the the stated reason that they elected not to play the phillies in nationals as and Rangers, Orioles and raise tigers, end twins, and then the mets. The mets in the MARLINS. So earlier, this afternoon, there was video leaked as the decision about whether or not to play this game was sort of being hashed out amongst the players video leaked of met's GM Brodie van wagon talking to reporters. We still have not gotten the exact tiktok of how this video made its way to the world's, but I will read from a transcript. The Jeff Passan provided, which is this is brody baseball's trying to come up with a solution to say you know it would be really powerful three of us here can't leave this room. You know it would be really great if you just have them all take the field than they leave the field, and then they come back and play at eight ten and I was like what? Identify voice who said that then wagon rub and with Jeff Scheduling going to be a nightmare and there's so much at stake and I said Jeff that's not happening. Unidentified voice they're not dealing with reality van wagon they're not playing, but that's rob's instinct rob exactly what you and I were talking about at a leadership level. He doesn't get it. He just doesn't get it anyway were waiting Jeff wants to hear as soon as we hear from the Marlins, whatever we do, we need to coordinate with the Marlins Societas Conforto. Here's from row Haas. Miguel Rojo's let me know because Jeff is standing by for a call. This is not the point of this but man McGill row hoss's really had a lot of influence over the major league schedules. Yeah that's true. That's that's an unimportant but sort of wild detail in all of this so that leaks and I think people should listen to the video. Even the we're about to say some things that have transpired subsequent to that because you know fidgety and clearly agitated and frustrated, and he sounds pretty clear about who he's frustrated with and the video broke on twitter and a great many people said while rob. Manfred scan have to resign because this is just this is unconscionable. This is so tone deaf and insensitive to this moment that is very important and certainly much more important than weird season played in the midst of a pandemic, and we should not be encouraging players to invoke a false or performance of sense of activism when they clearly are keen to have very real and conversations around an important issue. And this he's got to resign I. Think a lot of other people were like have we met Rob Manfred. Right, yeah. And so starkly speaking calls for Robin for resigned. Have not achieved that goal thus far although there have been many of them. No, they have not and so subsequent to that brody released a statement and and released a statement basically asserting that he had misunderstood who was really responsible for this that it was in fact Jeff Wilpon who had expressed this desire to reschedule things and he was very very sorry and then the mets decided to get in on the action 'cause they can't help. But mets and so both Fred Wilpon and Jeff Wilpon release statements both of them headed to Miss Speller own GM's name. Letters in that name. The part of this, that is the most surprising and I say this is a Megan who sometimes is the recipient of an errand h Fred wilpon statement, which starts I am very stressed in disappoint, which is the only time ever related to Fred. Wilpon me sort of real level. He says I'm just disappointed to learn tonight that are general manager Bert Van Wagon spoke correctly brody B. R.. O. D.. E. And maybe say to yourself breezily name artisan you Moore's anyone named I'm sorry all the brody's her name is fine. But like that's how he spells it and you hired him and signed his paychecks and then and then later in the in the statement, he says I hold rob in the higher sugar and Inouye are Brody's B. R. O. D. Y. remarks reflective of my views or the organizations route continues to be a great leader. Major. League Baseball Blah Blah and then Jeff wilpon clear understandings. It was my suggestion to potentially look into playing the game later because scheduling issues Brody's again bureau Dwi Misunderstanding of a private conversation wasn't as inexcusable. We fully respect our players Baba so. They met pretty bad. We're GONNA take like reset our little minute to enjoy their met saying. But I think that whatever misunderstandings they think they have around a private conversation the very public conversations that teams across the League are having both black players and other players of color and their white teammates are more important than this sole sponsor little moment. But then when everyone's done listening to this episode, encourage them to read those players, comments, coaches, comments. There's been some terrific writing on this subject at a number of different outlets. So that's far more important, but the mets remain themselves. In as many people have pointed out one of the Best Messengers on this issue has been a met. Smith had a very powerful statement about the effect that the police shooting of Jacob play cat on him and the players have reacted as they have and so it's a shame for that to be overshadowed in any way by typical mets ownership buffoonery or miscommunication or ineptitude or some combination of all of the above. You can all come to your own conclusions of how there really. Was a misunderstanding here or whether this was something wrapping inferred was advocating in the subsequent statements were just an attempt to do damage control but the mets players and marlins players handled the situation. Well, they took the field they had a forty two second moment of silence and then they walked off leaving only a black lives matter shirt behind covering home plate, which was a pretty powerful. Moment and that baseball has responded in the way that it has I think they're aspects of it that are disappointing their aspects of it that are encouraging that would be almost unthinkable that major league baseball players and teams would be postponing games because of police islands because of systemic racism who could have seen that coming a year ago with a elite Blake NLP the it's one. Thing, if it's the WNBA or even the NBA or or mls or leagues with histories of players being outspoken in being activists and MLB is not that which may be partly because of just the racial makeup of the League and the tradition that goes along with baseball's the the way that players are discouraged from speaking out the way that black players are minority and clubhouses more so. By the year of those reasons, which we have discussed plenty would make you think that baseball would sort of sit this one out and it did not entirely except for literally sitting it out in some teams cases in order to make a statement of support and solidarity, and so as not to provide a distraction. So you could say, well, the fact that it wasn't unanimous is. A bad look for baseball right Jack. Flaherty. Who is one of the two cardinals who didn't play on Wednesday along with Dexter Fowler tweeted why is it so hard to do something unified for one day just one day by contrast NBA said that they weren't going to play for a few days granted their bubble. They're all in the same place they can coordinate this much more easily. There fewer teams that are actually scheduled to play. So it's a little bit different. You know I think when all this really came to a head on Wednesday and a few baseball games were postponed and others were not. You know there were some that were in progress or about to start or maybe the players just thought going to be a milwaukee thing it's not something that we're. Expected to get in on it just wasn't really on their radar and I think there were some teams that said, you know we didn't really have a chance to talk about this or or meet about it, and if we had we, we made a different decision and so I'm hesitant to completely condemn any team that decided to play even on Thursday and say, well, they don't care. About these issues or they're showing their disregard for it, you do have different groups of players and different messages. I think in some cases, white players for better or worse or trying to sort of follow the lead of their black teammates and if they're hearing something different, you know you had some teams where a black player decided to sit out and the rest of the team said well, then we're also sitting out because we want to show our support for our team made in our frontier and. then. There are other teams that didn't do that and you know maybe Jason Heyward reportedly said play you know I'm sitting out, but you guys can go play and did he say that because he really felt that way or did he say it because it would have been difficult for him to say something else in that moment in that situation who knows that it's really hard to say but I think just attitudes about all of this are are changing. So rapidly across the country and fortunately in belatedly. Baseball club houses are not exactly a bastion of progressive thought. So I guess I don't want to be totally demoralized or or say that if you didn't decide to to postpone that means that you are irredeemable maybe different people can want the same thing but come to different conclusions about their part in that or how to show their support or what difference they're deciding to postpone would make but it is kind of confusing message when you do have some teams reportedly unanimously deciding not to play ran than others are just going about their business. Yeah I. think that I mean I think that. That's fair and perhaps the more productive way to talk about this is to cite an example of a case where it seems like things have resulted in solidarity, not only within the clubhouse. But with other organizations, I, mean I was really struck by the dodgers approach and there are a couple of things about the way that organization handled it in the people involved that might be instructive for things that both work really well, and that we have to look out for from a power dynamic perspective mookie Betts reportedly, he said that he had informed his team that he was not going to play. And the dodgers decided to stand with him and to not take the fields and Dave Roberts said that he wasn't GonNa Manage regardless of whether or not. The team was gonNA play and I think that you know for I, don't know clearly what it feels like to be a black person in America but I have been white person who has heard that I have a hard time. Believing that you would listen to teammates of articulate why this moment is important and then feel good about going to play baseball game. Now, I also have never been enough a player in a major league clubhouse. Let's another experience I don't share but I think that you know in this moment to be able to focus on on those parts, not only the policy prescriptions that come with them and. The hope for change, the comes with them but an understanding of the toll that this takes on people trying to live their lives every day with the weight of this on them I think is sort of a prioritization that I hope we all think about I. Think it's probably instructive that a player. I don't mean to say that the dodgers would not have deferred to a player who is less important to their team than Baptist his but it probably doesn't hurt that you know he is the best players in baseball. He is one of the best players on a dodgers team that stacked and is going to be a vital part of the Organization for a long time. So I think that I don't say that to to diminish what their approach would have been. Had it been someone else on that roster but I think that it's it probably helps us to understand just how important the solidarity buying is in instances where you might have someone who's who's on the Bubble right WHO's on the fringe of the of the roster in his unsure of what their their position in the club is GONNA be. So you know I was disappointed that there wasn't more uniform action I have been encouraged by the subsequent conversations that team seem to be having both publicly and within their own clubhouses and locker rooms. So I think that some of the conversations that they're having are really important you know Ron. Reinecke. said tonight when he was dressing Boston media that he hopes that when a kid turns on the TV. Tonight and asked his parents why the Red Sox aren't playing I. Hope they have serious discussions with them about why we aren't playing. and. So I think that it is not as if a lack of uniform action on day means that this can't continue to be a very powerful moment in sports but I hope that everybody just kind of thinks about how it felt to take the field when they knew that they had teammates hurting and teammates deciding that they needed to take a stanton, try to bring attention and discourse to an important issue and that that feeling is one that inspires greater solidarity moving forward. So yeah. I mean it may just be a matter of you know is there that presence in the clubhouse and who is that presence because unfortunately black players are not as common in major league club houses now, as they have been at at times in the past and so if you are a white player and black player, who may be is not thinking about these things as as much as you could or should, and no one is sort of making an impassioned speech about it in the clubhouse. Maybe it's easier for you to just say, well, yeah, we've got a game scheduled. So we're going to go out there or you know if you do have black player who decided to sit out and it's a teammate of yours, but maybe didn't want to move imposed that decision on everyone else or or Mak- speech about it to his teammates. Then you know maybe you get a different result in a not saying that's fair or right. It shouldn't necessarily be on the black players to explain why this moment matters and why the players response to it matters or convince anyone not to. Play the white players should be questioned on that just as much and they should be aware enough of what's going on in the world to understand what's happening here, and I think some players have kind of with added time to reflect and think about what the gesture of playing or not playing says of maybe he realized what the subtext texters or the text is there. The rockies were one example they played on Wednesday even though Matt Kemp did not and I think Trevor Story said on Thursday that there was regret about that decision and they then voted not to play on Thursday so. Better late than ever. So I think that as Joe, Sheehan wrote their causes, just their methods or peaceful and they deserve our support and I think we certainly agree with that and are heartened that there has been this level of of support at least just given baseball's past given some of this sort of supporting black lives matter theater as a Taylor and Bradford William Davis have pointed out after a day how quickly some of those sort of league sanctioned signs of of support went away or how insubstantial they were. This is the players really kind of taking it on themselves to to make. A really meaningful statement and to do something that you know there's not a lot of precedent for recently and the players Alliance also an organization of current and former but players they announced that they're donating their salaries from Thursday and Friday, which just so happens to be Jackie Robinson. Day to combat racial inequality in aid black families. So maybe it's that the sport in the past has set my expectations too low but there are a lot of gestures of support that are more than just gestures that are going on right now that's obviously pretty important I read, and then there are the mets. And then they're the midst, you can always count on them to fumble. Whatever it is. Not that they were the only team that didn't cover itself in glory from NPR perspective here the diamondbacks for some reason chose to put out a statement saying our players were prepared to play today's game against the Colorado rockies after team meetings, regarding plans to voice their support of social justice and equality. The decision was made to wear black jerseys and make donations to causes that defend that mission. The rockies notified us of their decision to not play. In the contest we are confident. The execution of our plan would have represented our support of complete and total equity while providing impact and driving awareness of this ongoing organizational priority. Okay. I'm sure that statement didn't reflect the sentiments of every player on that team, and in fact, Archie Bradley and John Shea had talked to the media about their support for not playing and how the decision not to play was mutual between those two teams. So in that. Light the team statement is even more perplexing but yeah, I mean you see how quickly some people have changed their thinking even Dave Roberts. WHO said that he would not have been on the field if the dodgers had proceeded with their game, you know just a few years ago he was sort of against taking a knee or he kind of came out against it and said, he saw it as a sign of disrespect for the flag because of. His background and he has since described his F. we shouldn't in thinking on that and that's just over a period of a few years and they're even more rapid shifts in thinking going on I think this year. So you can see why the response would be a little bit piecemeal but at least there was a response. So we will see whether this is sustained. Her whether baseball continues to follow the leads of other leagues, other sports on these issues. So. There's no great way to shift from that to just talking about bad balls and Bob but I guess shift is the operative word there because we are devoting the rest of this episode to a conversation that we had with two analysts who have devoted a lot of thought to the shift and whether it works. So we will be joined after quick break by Russell Carlton of Baseball Prospectus and Alex. Vickerman of Sports Info Solutions, and this is something that I've been thinking about a lot when. I've been thinking about baseball because Russell contends that the shift doesn't work or at least the amount that it's being used right now in baseball is counterproductive that it may actually be hurting teams sports. Info solutions has traditionally advocated for more shifts and has provided products advocating more shifts recommending when teams should shift, and so they've sort of been on opposite sides of this issue but we'll see if we can bring together and find some common ground here. So we will be right back with Russell and Alex. Turn. Turn. Okay, we are gathered here to I don't want to get to the bottom of because that might be a little over-optimistic for a podcast segment, but at least to explore an issue that has confounded and fascinated me over the past few years but even more recently question of how well the shift works and how often teams should be shifting. Should they be shifting more? Are they shifting too much already and we are joined now by two analysts who studied the shift extensively and have come to kind of contrasting conclusions or at least that's my understanding although maybe we will see if that's the case during the course of this discussion, I have joked about this being a. Duel to the death or a debate, but it's just GONNA be a friendly back and forth or at least that's what I'm expecting. But you never know podcasts are unscripted. Our first guest is Russell Carlton who writes for Baseball Prospectus in has been on the show many time before Hello Russell welcome back. Hello. There's the old Russell Carlton greeting and we are also joined by Alex Vickerman who is in our D analyst for Sports Info Solutions Company that studies and quantifies the effects of the shift and really just about everything else that happens on a baseball field and works with many team and media clients including fan graphs publishes sis fielding metric defensive runs saved Hello Alex. Thank you for having me. Sorry I don't have in a patented option at this point. That's okay. Russell's colorful enough for the both of you I. Think. So I told you both that I was GonNa Kinda Thi this up as a debate even though this is not a formal debate I thought we could sort of start that way and give each of you something of an opening statements to sort of summarize your philosophy of the shift and what work you have done on. This question and what conclusions you have come to, and I just used a random number generator to decide who would go I. IT turns out that the answer is Russell. So Russell the floor is yours. You can explain what your opinion of the shift is. Yeah. So this is one of the things I've just been working on for the last four years, five years, whatever it is and. It ended up being the title of a book that I wrote and I swear the book is not three hundred pages about the shift but plug but the the argument that I have I have come to is it actually just kinda started with what was sort of a cheeky question, which was we we talk about bad that bit front of the shift but how many people walked or struck out or hit home runs all the stuff that's not in Bab in front of the shift and at first, it was kind of a you know as a question was like well, why why do? We Care the defense doesn't touch the ball during a walk and You know I've seen some quotes and and you know was questions of the shift Kinda makes on comfortable well, does it make them uncomfortable in a way that affects their performance other ways so fast forward, a couple years I tried to do what I could with what was available and I found that with the available data that there were more call balls in front of the shift even though we didn't have walked data but in twenty eighteen stat cast and be savant, and they put out a data that actually had shift. Data in it, and that was just table for the download. So I went and downloaded it and they actually had the results of plate appearances, including walks strikeouts and things like that. So I I started looking at. Okay. Well, how many how many walks were in front of the shift and we need to be careful we need to control for WHO's bat who's The pitcher and think about some of those things you know some some pitchers just might give up a lot of walks of the sample is biased toward those guys than than we need to do account for that but even trying to. Do as many numerical gymnastic as as I could I kept coming back to the same conclusion, which was either a lot of extra walks in front of the shift and a number that was actually larger than the number of hits that the shift seemed to take away I mean certainly it it the shift does what it says on the label it it does reduce Bab APP there's no question about that in my mind but the problem was that it seemed to be doing seemed to be pumped up the number of walks and you can't throw out if he gets to walk to first. Base. So last week at BP I wrote an article right tried to dive into a why why is that and so I started looking at some heat maps around the strike zone where pitcher's throwing and it turns out on left handed hitters they were they were avoiding kind of the outer third of the strike zone not completely but there was a marginal effect and that's also kind of poke it to left field territory. If you want kind of a cheapie single and sure enough the pictures were avoiding that and where the the the the red part was where they were going more was kind of you know low an top of the zone but they were kind of at the at the edges of the zone, which is great. If you can live there and you can locate and you can do that sort of thing or you can get. A you can get a a swing strike but it it was kind of taking away part of the strike zone and I'm thinking well, you know maybe it's just that if you take away a pitchers of -bility to throw strikes or mess with his confidence in the ability to do that even a little bit a I mean the the link to walk fairly obvious. But you're also putting batters into a more advantageous count more. Often. You're. You know you're you're working to one instead of one to and a, and that can start to erode some of the benefits that you're going to get. You know one of the things I've also seen as you get a slight increase in line drives and in front of the shift, and you know that line drives are just a terrible outcome if you're a pitcher because they have a bad of six hundred something. And so it is it was an interesting case study in the unintentional effects that come along with something and making sure that you're you're you're looking through those and so I came to the conclusion that given a choice between the shift how it's done now and then just completely abandoning the idea I would actually choose the latter. Now, we don't have to do that. There's room for nuance and I tried to write this week about. Well, maybe there are places where that walk penalty isn't as big and certain types of pitchers and certain types of hitters, and so it doesn't you don't. You don't have to completely throw everything out. But at the same time, I think that there's a pretty good case that right now at least the way the shift is used, it's overused and in ways that aren't entirely obvious from the way that it's its effectiveness is traditionally been measured. Okay. So if I could sort of concisely some net up and tell me if I'm I'm summing this up, accurately, your position is essentially that the shift does what it's designed to do. It does prevent hits it lowers Bab but that there is this unintended byproduct of that maybe people teams players didn't initially realized that players are wary of throwing strikes particularly to certain areas of the strike zone where they're more likely to allow say A. Ball poke into the created by the shift in the opposite field, and therefore whether because of that, because of discomfort of some combination of both pitchers, walk more hitters when the shift is on and you contend that that on does the good that the shift does at least at the current levels of usage it's sort of a negative or or not a net positive at this point because of that affect that you've found basically yeah, okay, Alex. You can respond to that if you'd like where you can just lay out your own shifts studies and and how you've done that analysis on the cost and benefit. Sure. So I'm I'm in a slightly different position mostly because the research that Russell has done has been mostly stuff that came out of his own head and he's done over the last several years whereas I'm sort of in a sense representing a company that has a much longer track record of working on this kind of stuff then me personally. So in the most reason article, Russell basically said something. To the effect of that the walk problems he describes it as part and parcel of the shift self, and there's like a semantic thing there where it's like, yes it's probably more of a by product than it is something that's actually part of the shift right where we're not necessarily saying that if you shift there will be more balls, it's just that because pitchers of naturally want to tend their. They. Understand what the shift is trying to do when they want to try and help it out. They wouldn't do what they can to make shift work and the consequences of bad is that they actually make it not work, which is sort of weird thing to try and wrestle with and both both sort of agree that the shift handles balls hit to the infield the way it's designed to, and so if you know a shift candidates saw the exact same distribution of Pinter's with n without the shift I think we both kind of agree that he'd do worse with the shift on particularly on the balls in play that the shift is designed to. Defend. The should the balls to the infield. We use the definition of grounders, Short line drives, which is roughly one hundred and seventy five foot line drives plus all ground balls, which we call go cells essentially. So if the pitcher tries to adjust his tactics, better play into the shift and instead you know ends up costing himself strikes that's more of a secondary consequence. So it might be something that's unavoidable and to be honest, we don't know the answer to that but and so depending on your optimism regarding whether pitchers can control that both from a physical perspective having physical control but also the mental control to handle their own worries about what happens when. They pinch a certain way. They might be able to get past this but it's probably not fundamental to the shift itself and Russell sort of acknowledges that a couple of minutes ago that it's there's something that could be worked with. But in the current -implementation, there's some evidence and for what it's worth I reproduced the findings that Russell had terms of increase walk right Nassar thing. So there's definitely something they're the key things from our perspective our that there's plenty of evidence to the shift does would supposed to do on the balls that it's supposed to handle in terms of batting average on grounders in short line drives. So Russell mentioned earlier. That he uses a sort of waiting system to figure out what the shift is worth because obviously guys who get shifted almost exclusively would make up a larger portion of the sample and guys who could shifted almost not at all would be too small sample. So we use a weighting system and using that weighted system. We find that the shift cuts ban on gravity in short line drives by like ten to fifteen points over the last several years, and that's been pretty consistent year every year and is a little more effective to lefties but that's mostly just because if you're going to shift against a right handed batter, you're going to do it more judiciously. The real effects that you get though is when you serves likes down to the the better shift decisions. So the first is the distinction between a full shift and a partial shift. So we track both kinds, the full shift being the full sort of quote Ted Williams shift with three is on one side of the Infield and then the partial shift being two guys being significantly out of position or one guy being way position usually that's one of the middle infielders being sorted out into the outfield and so. These partial shifts we'd actually put out a bunch of research we talked about this at sabre seminar probably four years ago that partial shift even though they seem like a good way to kind of balance the risk of putting a guy on the other side of the Infield, they actually aren't as effective, and basically you split the spelling out of grads short line drives by full and partial shifts. Partial shifts basically don't do anything. They don't really move the batting average by more than five points, one way or another. Whereas when we isolate full shifts, we get more like a thirty point difference and then the next layer of that is that the idea of shift candidacy. So basically who were shifting against and Russell sorta mentioned this earlier that if you pick and choose your situation's a little better, you're going to have better results. So if we just sort of like a rough estimate based on recent bad ball trends for the guy. So if he hit at least three quarters of his ground balls in short line drives to the poolside for lefty eighty percent for Righty we call them shift candidate and About I guess in two thousand, fifteen, it was about eighty percent of shifts were on what we would define his candidates, and now that's more like sixty, five, seventy percent primarily that just because shifts have become more and more and more popular, and eventually you're just going over allocate those shifts. Two guys he probably shouldn't be, and again if we isolate the effect of. A full shifts on shift candidate says the sort of like ideal scenario in terms of effectiveness the drop in batting average on the ground in short line drives is up to fifty points. And again, if for all these other categories in terms of partial chefs or shifts on non-candidate, the effect kind of disappears. So the key thing that we kind of one advocate is essentially judiciousness in the way that you're using the shift. So while it's really tempting to use more nuanced shifting. Concepts in terms of nudging a guy, a few feet as opposed the throwing I on the other side of the field. The effectiveness is actually kind of drops off when you do these kinds of half measures and also just making sure that you're targeting the right guys Russell will let you respond to all. That was going to ask both of you and. This may be a good time to bring us up. We're all we're here because we're skeptical of Orthodoxy I. Don't think that we necessarily have to give teams the benefit of the doubt but sometimes when I'm kind of thinking through whether particular strategy or defensive deployment is optimal. I'm I'm curious who's using it and how they are and so I'm curious. Alex you mentioned sort of these distinctions in the kinds of shifts that you guys track. But for either of you and Russell, we will not ask you to reveal a met specific secrets. So if you're not but I'm curious sort of which teams are most consistently employing the shift and if the both the teams that are doing it and the kinds of shifts that they are most prone to use. Tell you anything one where the other about either the efficacy of the strategy as it stands now or. That are trying to tinker to find a better particular deployment of the shifts so that it can overcome some of the issues that you have both raced. Yes. So in terms of teams using it, it gets kind of interesting just because from year to year teams can fluctuate wildly I'm just looking at we have a table essentially shifts by season by team, and for example, the twins really have have been a big. Mover in terms of shift usage since twenty teen where they went from again this is so we track everything on Boston play. We're doing everything from video. So, in terms of shifts on balls in play, they went from nine, hundred, twenty, seventeen to seventeen, hundred, and twenty, eighteen, and twenty, four, hundred in two, thousand, nineteen. And in a full season in twenty twenty, they would be even higher than that. So these teams that kind of jump when they go from year to year, the twins are an interesting example because they were kind of dinosaurs for a long time, and then they sort of upped their use of analytics and the sort of obvious place to start doing that is in these kinds of things in working on a shift the team that's currently leading in shifts on balls in play is the dodgers which we all think dessert for good franchise to. Be served modeling your behavior after and they're well known for their serve clever use of tools defensive positioning in terms of lasers and all that kind of stuff for a while it was the rays that were the the big team for that kind of thing and also the astros although the Astros I think in terms of I've also so I interned for the Red Sox for a bit and we would occasionally have conversations about teams that kind of went too far on things and there was a at least to some extent and A. Perception about the Astros, for example that they when they uptick their shifts, they kind of went too far. And that was several years ago that they did that and they've tempered themselves since then but certainly, the teams that are more likely to jump up from one year to the next are those teams that you kind of think of in terms of sort of advanced ways of thinking and kind of pushing the envelope? Yes. So let me direct this to you. So I wonder. How you think about the fact that shifts are becoming more and more and more common, they're up almost forty percent this season after being up a lot less season than almost every season since people started shifting and I don't know what to make of this because on the one hand, I hold you in high esteem as a writer and an analyst on the other hand. There are a lot of people who work for baseball teams that I also hold in high esteem and I assume that they have looked into this themselves, and so the fact that teams are shifting more and more that teams that we tend to label progressive for smart quote unquote are sort of leading the charge or have historically led the charge. Does that make you doubt? Yourself does it make you think that it can just be easy for anyone to sort of fixate on one aspect of the shift in many other aspect because that's the fascinating thing you're not saying that it doesn't work on DAB and initially that's all we really thought of was its effect on Babylon. So you could imagine a scenario where everyone was just focusing on at. And they were so single minded on that one thing that they missed this effect that at least to this point has gone hand in hand but there are so many people working on quantitative issues for baseball team. So many smart people that I almost have to think that people have looked into this and granted not everyone who works for team says the power to make decisions and decrees this is. How often working shift, but that's something that I feel conflicted about because on the one hand, you don't want to do the appeal to authority and say, well, all the teams are doing it. So they must know what they're doing because that was the justification that everyone used for not shifting great because that was how it had always been. We don't shift we play with this traditional defensive alignment and. That must be the best way to do it. So one or the other must be wrong or I guess there are gradations and degrees here. But how do you square your findings which Alec says confirmed to an extent shift the fact that teamsters shift more and more received yeah and they do and I mean the sheer this year is up wait I mean the the if you look at the Jump in it I think I was a couple we August week and a half ago I was looking at it was literally the majority of balls in play. I were in front of a shift this year and I mean that's astounding. Even even in a strategy that over the last decade of the teens had a twenty fold increase from twenty ten to twenty, nineteen and shirts. It's it's just all. Of course, it's kind of obscured by the fact that is going to be a short season, but it's it's just way up and to be honest with you, I keep writing these articles hoping that I'll be like. Oh that's why they do it. All I'm such an idiot and I keep hoping that I'll I'll be sitting there and and poking around my spreadsheet and an nl suddenly discover something that that should have that should have been that I should have seen all along and then I you know right a little. You know I'm an idiot article and post it and and I keep hoping that that's going to happen just because it would it would you know it would it would make the gnawing doubt away basically I, mean I I I have that same. That same fear of you know I do feel a little bit like I'm kind of crying out in the Wilderness and if no one hears me than you know am I am doing something wrong and at and it's entirely possible that I am I mean I'm a married man. I've been wrong. All Lot asked my wife you know and. It's a it is the sort of thing that I have literally been awake at night going to thank that I mess up on the shift at they get something wrong and I mean, it's it is something that I I just can't square up and I I. It's just the way it is and you've been reading these articles for a while and you know people who work for teams. So no one has reached out to you to say here's what you're missing. This is why we do it. No no one has i. mean they would probably they would probably say now don't don't feel for those but you know I mean they would probably do the cloak and dagger thing but I mean, the honest truth is that nobody has reached out to me and said Hey. This is you know there's this missing piece if they did. I would just kind of let the matter drop in and not I wouldn't out them but I would I would just let it drop. It's just but nobody said that to me so I mean hey. y'All y'all know where to find me. If you could just if you could just get me some sleep, I would be very, very happy. I. Wonder if we tease at least from a theoretical perspective, something that is interesting to me both because of what you said, Alex about some of this, perhaps being a matter of the strategy not being optimally deployed even within itself right that there are some partial shifts that should just bite the bullet and go full shift, and then you know Russell with your expertise in psychology curious and I, know you've touched on this in some of your pieces on. On, the question. But what effects do you expect the unwillingness either of fielders to adapt to the strategy because they're worried about letting the ball, go through that they otherwise would be there for if they were in a traditional spot pitchers who just really get in their own heads about the lack of a defender or an incomplete defense on one side of the infield like they would expect. Do you think that that is something that we will be able? Ever quantify explain satisfactorily because I do sometimes wonder how much of this is a good strategy that perhaps because of human limitations because we all hate to feel embarrassed were never just going to be able to deploy quite the way we want to even if we think the theory behind it a sound. Sense If you raise your voice a little bit the NFL question mark at the end. So then it's Okay I, I mean I I I mean as a mcmansion of my background is in psychology I I study how humans work study decision making, and there when I first started writing this sort of stuff. My hypothesis was maybe it's just this is a little weird and I feel uncomfortable pitching in front of this, and so that's really what isn't you just Kinda A. said the pitcher down or you gotta sit the fielders our whatever you want to do and be like, okay, look. This is okay. This is this actually works. Here's the numbers. Here's the charts. Here's all that and it, and at first I thought maybe we could just Kinda talk our way through this and and maybe that is the case maybe we could do that but the longer this goes on in the you. Know it's just it's something that I mean it's out there and the more that it kind of festers and it's just kind of that. That walk penalty is always there the more I think in made mention this you know I'm thinking us more kind of part and parcel of of what the shift is. I? mean. It's it. You know maybe it's it's entirely logical and pitchers are just thinking with their rational minds. And going there's only one guy over there. Maybe I don't want to throw a pitch that the batter could poke over there. I want were their step three guys over there, and it's unfortunate because that you know that area that they do seem to be avoiding is that that part of the strike zone which has these knock on effects and so the the more studied this, the more I think I don't. Know that we can just Kinda talk our way through this and I don't know that that we can do I mean that is that that is the unanswered question and I don't know if we can fully quantify that I mean we can observe the behavior, but I don't know that kind of gets into we would need a mind reading machine to do that and don't think stat cast has that feature installed yet. Alex I wanted to ask because this is something that's been puzzling me for years. Why is it? How is it that the shift can be preventing? So many hits on balls in play ostensibly in SAS publishes reports are provides its clients with reports on this team has saved. This many shift runs in that team has saved that many shift runs and yet the league bbb just really hasn't budged for decades now, and it is down a little bit decision not so much lately it's kind of. been back to normal sense an abnormally low start to the season. But basically, we went from no one ever shifting to the shift being quite common over the course of you know ten years or so and Babbitt up until this season has been basically the same as it was in the mid ninety s let's say. So how is it possible for both of those things to be true that that the shift is stealing a lot of hits from hitters and yet that hasn't actually come down. So. I'm probably not going to have a satisfactory answer for you. But the part of it is to some extent, the this notion that Russell's talking about of you take away some singles but you give back in other places. So you know the slugging percentage on balls in play with the shift on is actually slightly higher particularly end, but that's mostly from balls hit to. Above the shift essentially so there is to some extent, this sort of alternate set of batted balls. Doesn't have any effect on at least directly that actually there is some evidence that there are worse outcomes on those balls. So there is a bit of a counterbalancing effect. The other part of it is that we're only talking about a subset of place talking about these grounders and short line drives which represent obviously a large portion of bad balls but not all of them not even you know. Two thirds, three quarters of them. So you're only talking about a subset of place you're talking about like mentioned before there's shifts that are going to be more or less effective depending on who you're facing depending on where the fielders are that sort of thing, and so when even with teams making many many more shifts year-over-year ten times more twenty times more than than seasons, not that long ago. The fact is that that also adds in plenty of inefficient shifts that are not you know they might they'll work sometimes. But in general, they're not necessarily best practices, and so they're actually going to give some of those hits back. So it's it's. There's a little bit of sample size type thing in a little bit of just kinda counterbalancing effects I think. The thing I always think about here is is that it's really hard for people to really work in the negative space of what about what about the ground ball that never happens and I mean yeah the shift I mean if you if you hit a ground ball to the right side, the shift is your worst enemy. It's it's it. It does exactly what it's but you know when when I talked about. More, call balls. Well okay. Well, that means you're you know you're up to one maybe feel a little bit better about you know what I'm GonNa hunt for particular pitch and I get it. I'M GONNA I'm just GonNa sit back and rip on it, and sometimes you get that pitch and instead of the ground ball to the right side that you would have hit you actually you know scraping ice line drive and we go well, okay. Know the shift wasn't going to do anything about that. But did that did that happen as kind of a third step downstream of of The shift and end the count being in your favor and and some of those, some of those follow on effects. So I mean I I worry about whether what's happening is that you know were taking those ground balls or short line drives to the right side out of out of circulation and replacing them with things that have a higher babette value or higher slug value. So Russell, you use through all the public facing information Alex, you have all of Sports Info solutions I am finally getting out of the habit of calling you guys baseball Info solutions we're still working on ourselves. But. Even with all the great data that you have access to. Now, we don't have the complete suite of stackhouse information teams have access to at least Russell you don't any more I'm curious if there are particular pieces of information, more granular position data that you think would be helpful in helping to sort of unpack the puzzle a bit more between some of the inefficiencies that we see in the deployment of the shift and the persistent use of it by. Teams that were all trying to understand and grapple with here? So I think the one thing that having access to stack cast afford do is the ability to move away from the sort of white distinction of shifts. No shift. You know we've tracked this for a decade now and we've sort of made it a big deal to track shifts and we have very rigid definition of that especially for men on one side of the field and we do have relatively. Sort of quantifiable definition partial shifts as well because you WanNa make sure that those are recorded as consistently as possible. So we have these sort of binary shift, no shift distinctions but in reality, that's not how you should be positioning your players you should be using more granular pieces of information to make decisions about where you're going to position your players, and obviously you're not necessarily going to say this guy needs to stand this exact spot but in terms of rough areas in which players need to position themselves, the decisions need to be more involved than just saying, Oh, I'm gonNA throw a third guy over the to the other side of the Infield and call it a day. Having Stack has positional data afford do the ability to work on things like optimal fielder positioning, using some kind of model to essentially optimize where you position your fielders with some you know initial constraints that because I know that we saw it was savers seminar a year or two ago. Somebody did optimal field or positioning and produced against might trout you end up with like two left fielders and guys who stacked. On top of each other and that sort of thing. So you you can't take these things. So at face value, but absolutely, like that kind of data afford do the ability to do a much more nuanced version of shift decision making. So wrestle I know you can't really get into in detail your time with the mets it I think I can say it was publicly reported that you had maybe a little. Input into their shifting strategies during your time there and may be advised them on some of the things that you have since written about publicly. But if you were with the team in a in a decision, making capacity because a consultant is not always in that position if you were what would you do? Would you just say, okay, that's it shift over except for maybe some limited times when it does make. Sense despite the wok penalty or would you persist and hope that you could school year pitchers out of the walk penalty that you could tell them that this exists tell them don't pick differently when the shift is on because even though it seems like it makes sense it's actually hurting you do you think you could convince them of that or is it not even worth trying benef- I had that much power goodness. I would use it for such other things. SAY DON'T WASTE IT ON SHIFT I. MEAN COME ON This the number of the number of things that I got blamed for that the mets did that I had absolutely nothing to do with I I I mean. The. The things that I. I worry a little bit about saying you know, hey, just go back and throw in the outer third and you'll be fine because i. I took a look in one of the articles of were I said, okay. Would batters do differently and sure enough they poke at that petch and they they do so more than than in front of a standard to to defense and it's it's fairly obvious why they do that because you know if you're if you're up there, you know take a single here and you can you can you have a pretty good chance of doing that if you've played cards, right. And so they're more incentivized to do. It makes perfectly rational sense they do it, and so it might not be a matter of, Hey, we can. Just we can just kind of talk you through nervousness here and do it. I, mean if I you to go back on the inside, I would say in a look here's here's what I found and people that work for teams are also you know other human beings and we have this idea that there some of superhumans but you know they are just other human beings and I don't know maybe one of. Them have the you know that that magical thing will help me sleep at night but but I would just say you know look here this is there's something going on here and maybe this is the sort of thing where you know we need to sit down and have these kind of deep conversations with you know the some some stakeholders here, the pitchers themselves, the pitching coach the you know whoever whoever needs to be in on the conversation and say, okay, what I can't read your thoughts but you know let let's just talk to me about what's going on. In your head as you're preparing for the shift, you know, is it something that you have some some idea of how you're pitching differently or if you're doing anything differently or does it just not register and I think that that would be you know that that would be the place to go with that? Is that you know I mentioned not being able to thought read but you know if you have that kind of inside access it it, it might be worth it to just you know sit down and Have people just tell you their thoughts out. Loud. It would be really great if there was a shift center of the brain where you can put like an ekg on a guy and and just see like. The you know he's he's throwing and he's this little blip happens not worried about the shift. I Yeah I'm I'm I'm game for that. If you know MLB's okay with that. I'm I'm totally kind with that. Yeah. So would most people think about the shift and I think even in the course of our conversation here they typically mean shifts that involve infielders on or pretty much near the Infield and granted there are a number of different kinds of outfield shift so as probably going to. The the sort of course, this question but we've talked about the infield shift. Have you seen any evidence? It makes you think well, they got those infield thing. Wrong. But the way they're moving around those outfielders they have something figured out there is hope for the shift we just have to go further from home. Plate? You're talking about in terms of outfielder positioning yeah. Yeah I. Mean I think some of the stack cast off they technically define as shifted right when they moved beyond the standard right relatively standard deployment. So and there's probably something to that I? mean. We know that even I mean even on the field you can you can do optimal positioning in any. It might be a little bit more obvious in the outfield because if you think about. You know if you want to move a couple of degrees to the right or the left on the Infield bits, you know maybe or two in if you're in the outfield, it's it's a good number of feet and you can actually see the player doing it and so I mean that's I. think that it's it's easier to pin down in the outfield and there's something to be said for you know just kind of. Saying, okay. Well, you know is there a specific range of of angles of of spray angles that we? We see here and and if the answer's yeah well, okay, we'll put a fielder there I mean that's I think that that's that is very much in play and I I think the all of the teams are doing at this point to try and get that and I think that you know some of that, some of that small gradation of you know just a jump the left in the step to the right is, is all stuff that you can. It's all stuff that you can do and should be done. I think that when you're pulling. A field over the other side of second base it it's just such a drastic. It changes the rules so much in terms of what the incentives are that I think that you're you're you're then dealing with a very new set of variables that just don't change as much if you're just kind of doing nudges and there I think the reason this is so intellectually in. To me this mystery is because of the way our thinking has shifted. Sorry on this subject to over the past decade or so where when teams started shifting initially, it was still sort of this US versus them sabermetrics versus. Will kind of battle you know and there was a lot of resistance within the game and it seemed so intuitive. That will, of course, if you put your fielders where the better tends to hit the ball, then that's going to be more effective than just leaving them in the same position for every better regardless of their betted ball patterns and that seemed so obvious and yet there was this inertia in this reluctance to do that, and there were a lot of objections about. Well, pitchers are uncomfortable with. It players are uncomfortable with it, and maybe some of that was true again, maybe that's not the whole effect, and it certainly is the case that putting fielders in front of where the ball go is still seems like a good idea if you want to prevent hits but the idea that maybe we're missing this big glaring thing along that we were also convinced that we were smart that we had figured this thing out that the tradition was wrong and that really we were fixating on this one aspect. Of the shift and totally missing this other thing that was kind of counteracting the effect that we found that is sort of a seductive idea. One could write a book about that and call it the shift and actually have it be all about the shift this time call it something else Russell already that title. But there are a lot of examples of that were saber magicians. Analysts were kind of overconfident at first and may be reached the wrong conclusion or didn't have the right data to reach the. Right conclusion whether it's catcher framing or or something else right. Before we had pitch affects smart people like Keith Wilner looked into catcher framing and said, no, it doesn't seem to exist there doesn't seem to be anything to it, and then of course now we realize that it matters a whole lot and there are other examples of that to where it turns out that at first we were a little bit wrong about something in kind of an interesting way and maybe the old school people were right in their. Way To and so I don't know that that is the case with the shift and I don't WanNa let that Nice narrative that is so stimulating to me govern what I think about this it should be based on the data but I think that's why I keep coming back to it because I think we were also sort of smug about this. Of course, it works and how could you possibly claim that it doesn't maybe we were missing something along but that sort of still remains to be seen. So. That's Kinda. Why I keep coming back to it. It's like an example of the the fallacies that smart people can get into her you know it could potentially be an example of that if that is borne out by the results but I guess further study is required and further instruction and ways to try to teach players to to find a way around this. But I just wonder what people with teams are thinking I know there are people on teams and in front offices that listen to this. PODCAST, and presumably they have all either independently reached the conclusion that this makes sense or maybe they reach that conclusion five years ago and haven't really reexamined it and it's just become the new dogma, the new orthodoxy or maybe they do have better data or a better way of looking at it or maybe after overcoming all of that resistance and teaching your players and coaches that this had to do things it's kind of embarrassing to go back to them and say, actually we missed this big honking thing. That actually it turns out that maybe you guys were sort of right about this at first. So I don't know if we're at that point but that is why this is also compelling to me and Alex I mean you work with teams right? You have team clients and I don't know if you can get into that but has this come up at all I mean I know that team's probably look at the recommendations for say the optimal shifting rates that SAS has published in the past the present so Have you said anything to them about this or have they said anything to you appended or has this tier knowledge not really gone beyond the the baseball prospectus comment section I would say I remember hearing anything in terms of people being you know circumspect about shift effectiveness in that sort of thing we've had a product that offers does the sort of knows shift decision recommendation? We've had that for years now so it's it's something that is that we've offered that we've talked teams about we've talked about for years obviously because we've been kind of the pioneers. In, terms of tracking the shift we ended up having lots of conversation about the kinds of things that we offer with respect to that, and generally it is one of the products that that teams are interested in and it's one of the things that they're looking for insights through. But I don't know that I've heard that much in terms of people being sort of questioning whether the shift is effective at least not to us. Now, of course, it's a little awkward to potentially have that conversation when we're trying to sell the thing that tells them doing. So. Maybe they're disinclined to start the conversation, but I don't remember hearing anything at least the other way I guess my thinking about this change is that initially it was the exciting innovation and an example of ingenuity and pulled thinking, and now just the the standard infield over shift is kind of old hat I mean it's it's almost the the default now and so it's a little less exciting in. So we're all drawn to the new thing in the counter. Intuitive. Oh maybe the shift doesn't work. So that's exciting now and you know I think four outfields are exciting and five men in fields or exciting, and some of the relief exotic shifts and alignments that we see these days but the old boring shift that was so new intrinsic aggressive A decade ago is now something that we're all accustomed to seeing, and also I think the effect of the shift if it does work really well is wes offense fewer people. Lower batting average etc, and none of us really wants that and so I think once you get over the novelty of it and hey, this is a cool tactical innovation and if you think of this senior bold enough to implement it, then you should be rewarded than suddenly it's like well, if this works than it might actually make baseball less entertaining, which is sort of what some people have been saying all along. You know when rob Manfred would flute every now and then we should ban the shift I. Think a lot of US said, well, no, you shouldn't a because we should give hitters an opportunity to react to that and see if they can find a way around it and Also because it doesn't actually seem to be working all that well, or or it's not really responsible for increasing strikeout rates or or reduced batting averages, and maybe that still turns out to be the case. But after all this time, it seems like batters are unwilling or probably unable or some combination of both to really beat this thing to start laying down bunt sir or regularly going the other way because it turns out it's really hard to direct where you you put your batted balls when you're just hard pressed to to make contact at all. So I don't really know which I'm rooting for here. I, guess my my loyalties are a little different from what they were in two thousand ten. And I mean I I worry that. Short of. Banning the shift which they did in the Atlantic League if I'm not mistaken. They put like the third foul line out there on in outside of second base there. There's the reality that if a team has the opportunity to clamp down on runs, they are going to do it. It is it may not look pretty on TV, but they are going to do it and I worry that the yeah I mean that one of the things that I've seen in my my my stuff on the shift over and over again is that it actually discourages balls and play and we talk about you know pace of play and whether there's kind of enough enough action in the game and walks and strikeouts are boring and nobody wants to a watch. Them and you know were were taking away singles but replacing them with walks well walks boring. You know maybe this is something that is bad for the product. So I mean there's there's something to be said for you know maybe maybe they happy happy ending is the shift doesn't really work people take it off more singles fewer walks. Yes. Scoring actually goes down but there's just no more balls hanging around the field that people like to see some maybe there's a silver lining to it at the end of the day there's also sort of an odd incentive structure especially the difference between the incentives for us as consumers of the product and the players themselves so. Ben You were talking about you know what? How does a hitter react to this and maybe you know maybe they do and a poking of all to the other side of a little bit more often, and that results in more heads for them, and that does result in a higher batting average but at the end of the day they're going to get. Paid more if they get more extra-base base hits and that's just sort of the way things work and it's going to be hard to convince people to move towards a more contact oriented poking the ball the other side approach when the financial incentives for the players are such that they really do want to just hit for power when the KEN and so these. In Games incentives of more strikeouts more home runs stuff that drives the team decision making because at the end of the day they do want to win but obviously from as a fan perspective people who are concerned about the health of the game overall that kind of goes in the opposite direction of those things because it reduces balls and play in potentially. Makes longer games all these other sorts of things. I have a question that might be very stupid and you can tell me like mega. You're just way off the mark on that one, and then we'll move on and I won't hold any grudges and that'll be that. But I, wonder if if perhaps one thing that teams might be thinking about when it comes to. Justifying the shift to themselves is looking at players from their total contributions and I think we are familiar with guys playing second base in particular both in the majors now, and you know there's sort of a crop of prospects who might otherwise have been thought to not be able to play middle infield spots that are now kind of being allowed to hang around there as a way to get their bat in the lineup, and they're allowed to hang out in the fields part because they are shift aided. So is there a possibility that part of the way that teams are maybe thinking about? This is yeah that guy. You know in total the shift isn't doing quite as much as we want it to but it's allowing us to play player acts at second, and we want that bat in the lineup. So were able to justify it to ourselves in in that respect you can tell me that's terrifically terrific. Yes. Terrific. Absolutely. Terrific. terrifically this I'm like Oh. That's a great idea. I had to write about that. I mean that it's entirely possible that that's that is something that's going on that. There's only so much. There's only so much. You can do to hide a glove bad glove Rom, but that would be that would be one. that. I don't know that there's enough of a of a of. A mass of those kind of. IFFY glove negative ten second Baseman who were. Who are out there and the teams are like, well, you know, but we could we could throw him to the lineup and it would be worth number of runs I. Don't know that there's enough of that to really move the needle a whole lot. But I think that th there's there's something to be said for that. There's know if you can. If you can get away from, we don't need our second baseman to be that good on defense and we can. We can play a little bit more toward either moving a guy there or you know trying to trying to sign a free agent who isn't as gifted there and try to cover for it that way I mean I think that that's There there is some incentive in there and there's something. There it's it's not a stupid theory I. Mean It's it's actually pretty good one I like it. I'm so relieved Oh good. Well, we have orchestrated this meeting of the minds in before we part the mind is there anything that either review would like to say to the other any questions or comments her suggestions? How to you're on the same podcast? I. Guess Funny. Just to be on here because especially a couple years ago when Russell a couple articles is probably like three over the course of summer he became sort of like our nemesis in the office and so there's there's definitely a bit of A. Russell Carlton Whenever there's an article that comes out. So it is funny to be in a context that is. You radically could be a debate but in reality we agree on enough things and what it's worth was I was a psychology major in college. So so I'm we're both sort of coming at things from a similar angle often. So so there's more common ground than I think it seems like and frankly just a lot of it is that we think that the thing works in a specific way and people react to it in a rational way like the evidence that Russell showed his most recent articles that he kind of looks like the pictures are doing what they really should be doing if they were. Able to execute it perfectly, right like if you were able to have enough control that you could throw that ball on on the outside edge of the plate and not get the extra balls, then you would get kind of the ideal result and so part of the dishes sort of human fallibility and maybe that's east stat. The teams are missing where they're adding more and more shifts. But at the end of the day, the players can only execute things. So finally, and so you'RE GONNA lose some of the the theoretical value of it because they can't execute it as well as you want them to. I'm so sorry I caused such drama. Word. Sorry In? It, just kind of leading up to this I mean I you guys are working with the SIS data sat and I don't have access to that and I I was actually word I'm like come on and be like like on our data set something totally different you're totally wrong and As as you were kind of doing your opening thing, I'm like Oh. Okay. So yeah, they're finding that to okay good. They're finding that to okay good. I feel so much better and so I mean it's it's really clubbing. It's There there's this piece that I mentioned earlier that that we don't know, and it's whether we could really you know talk her way out of this and whether we could you, you talk about human fallibility and whether we could kind of train pitchers to pitch in a way that is kind of shift proof or at least at least kind of gets rid of the bad parts of the shift and NAF it doesn't have to do the whole thing, but it just cast to get back to profitability, and at that point, you know if it's if something's a that positive minor net positive while you do it and. There's that part that we haven't really explored. I'd you know that's that's that's the part where you know as much as I. The first line of that one article was, let's kill the shift or something like that. We can't really do that without really having a full accounting for it, but that's I mean that's that's the cool part that that I just this conversation I'm like, yeah, this is this is good stuff. Well yet again, I tried to set up a brutal grudge match said, pat a respectful and conciliatory discussion so. Just seems to happen no matter what we do but I think both of you for coming on and explaining and defending your ideas here and talking to us and each other it has been entertaining and enlightening for me, and of course, I will link to all your stuff that's out there on our show page and I will link to Russia's research on the subject.

"This is your ultimate staffer. Everything sports the Golden state media concepts or podcast. Should I say more from the NFL MLB the NBA MMA. It's all in here. Golden state media concepts sports podcast. Listen Yeah Yeah Yeah I looked s MC sports podcast spending by G S MC podcast network. My name is Chris Blades and as always. I'd like to remind you guys if you haven't already please subscribe to the podcast. Miss Your on top when we drop stuff make sure you never miss an episode If you could as well give us a five star rating unbiased review it would be very appreciated. I'm obviously guys like than than like help us get better all that fun stuff and also if you on social media which I know a lot of you are we on social media so you can find us their twitter instagram facebook. Whatever social media platform you're using we're using so we can talk? You can check we can discuss and the MBA trade deadline and gave us some interesting things to discuss. Now what I say. Any high profile player got traded. Ninty Ninh depends on your definition of our profile Big names maybe not big. The well known names got moved and Tom There's quite a few people. Changing teams as of Hoarding Thursday nights is of earlier Thursday. And one the biggest ones and arguing by the biggest one in trade that is was the warriors in T. Wolves swapping swapping all-stars swapping former lottery. Picks I dunno however you WanNa word it but this some players The Warriors Traded D.. ngelo Russell Martin Spell Manage Bevan's to the wolves for Andrew. Did you wiggins atop they protect pick in twenty twenty one not twenty twenty which is a big difference. Won't talk about that in a second in the twenty twenty one second round. Pick now if I were to list the players that I thought deal could be traded for when he initially got traded to the warriors as a signing trade Andrew Wiggins was one. I probably that would probably be on at lesson. One people mentioned a while back. Act just because you're kind of looking at like all right. What what would the warriors need? who would fit those needs. Who has the money to match up with? Allow and wiggins are just a guy who if the a wanted to move on from him be the warriors they wanNA bring him on made a lot of sense for both sides Tom delay was always going to be a weird fit With the warriors just because like the backward situation one steph in clay are healthy Deal at the three eighty play clay at the three inches can does it really matter now. Really receding With the rockets. Who are going without without a senator? In their starters are like six five and below so the positions in basketball are becoming more skewed now unlike guide the way the way it was like very rigidly point. Guard shooting guard. This guy's a powerful stuff that doesn't really matter as much these days But still the fit was always going to be weird Obviously for whatever reason the warriors decided to move on the season has gone one but Also they didn't expect Steph to play. What three games? Delos mistimed MAS mistime Ozzie. Clay wasn't going to be back So yes he has gone how they wanted and and they decided hey. Let's the shot to flip him in being deal obviously and then. They flipped him to a team. That was in desperate need of point guard we talked about on the last podcast. Believe or not last week. I'll be talk not only about how the wolves were devoid of a point guard right after making some moves. They need a guy to add in also. They need a guy to try to find a way to make Karl Anthony towns happy because This is at least I mean we owe back This season he has been happy. Obviously he's missed some time so Amir's he hasn't played the full season but I think they've lost thirteen in a row. Something something crazy they. The team has been struggling and end. The he's he's said some things in post game or in media scrums revolving around the the sugar that the teams having this year. And how discomforted bad so the the wall on other words the wolves had to do something to try to appease him and if the team's GonNa be sorry at least let the man beyond sorry team that also happens to have one of his friends in league and I think that's as much as again we need to point guard so that makes sense that aspect. I think a big part of that. A big part of this was the fact that they could trade for someone that you knew car wanted to play alongside longside. I know there was. I think it was a slam magazine. I don't know that was the an covered with him. Deal in Devon Booker on it in the off season. They've all discussed teaming up. Obviously it's very hard to do now. They're all locked in contracts though from dealer disc traded So not not impossible but still it was. It was a situation where the wolves have to do something in order to like I said make their star player. Happy because at if the season continued how was how was going in. And Wigan still didn't Jell the way you would hope for at this stage in their careers respectively. Then you're looking at situation Asian. Were maybe cats trying to find his way out of Minnesota didn't offseason and at the very least any kind of the kind of put a hold on that for the time being just because honest I mean honestly. I'm not really sure how that fits GonNa work on the court but At at the very least you you. It's discounting anything that you're working just a normal job. Not even an athlete that you WanNa go to work and be around the people that you want to be around that makes the job more enjoyable no matter what is you're doing people you around can make your experience better. They can make it worse and as of right now the people around cavill making his experience worse so even though this is still my memory. 'cause you're still living in Minnesota no offense to anybody living Minnesota's cold then we'll colder than Muslim places on the team still going to be sorry. The deal is not automatically make them of avaiable playoff team that how not gonNA happen But at the very very least at least it'll be around somebody like to be around which will make these slightly better for him. So this is a situation where I said. I'm not sure how much better they will be on the court but at least awfully record carl should be happier again. Winning cures everything. So if they were winning would have been happy but the fact that they're not coupled affected maybe him wings. Don't really gel that well Kind let let them having to make some sort of moving out see. This is the one that Kinda made. The most sense sounds for them. In terms of guys that are available in the point guard market on the trades and from the federal trade aspect And then on the flip side of this for the warriors I mean and this is a better fit for them like the deal is again he could slide into that small ward role But it's still a weird eared one because we're what six years into wiggins career and like us those kinds of debate on twitter earlier this counter. Like if you told me wiggins was overrated overrated you. I would agree with you if you brings was possibly underrate our degrees. I mean he's a guy that averages twenty plus points a game which I mean I mean that's great but it's it's it's hard to those numbers about them amongst with some other guys too? It's hard to really gauge The the numbers that when you're on a bad team 'cause obviously it's easier to put up numbers in theory on a bad team so that that Kinda Anna cloud things a little bit. But I'm yeah he's the guy is averaging what is having twenty two us. Average US averaged Twenty points Muslims guerrillas having twenty two points five rebounds this season Shooting that great from three but again. Here's what it is. He's not really been a great jump shooter his entire career so that's not anything no but in in the on the warriors he won't have to be like Tanglin Carl out from a lot for a good portion of the he's got to be number one guy at worst number two guy and once all the pieces back back for the words that's never going to happen he's GonNa have to be dislike Batter version of like what Harrison Barnes before Katie King because he can't be Katie. That's I mean everybody that we blasphemous for me to say that he was gonNA replace. Katya is not possible but IGA potentially be like the Harrison. Barnes type Guy Guy were just like you. E- Has Nights where he can go for twenty thirty points a game but that's not really his required role and On theory in mean in theory is a better fit for him. They're just be though. I emigrated to see how him dream on will work. Because it was well documented amid how much Jimmy Butler hated wiggins and economy towns and Draymond kind of strikes me as a guy in the similar cut from similar cloth I mean Jay minds. Pricing Guy From McCall Jimmy Butler on that they are the guys that weren't highly touted. Warren high the draft picks. They expect he would come in and work hard play. Give Effort on defensive end get effort all the time I mean. You've you see if you if you seen. If Katie eighty can can catch the wrath of drain on then I would be shocked if wiggins dozen so. I think that'll be the victims to see because again. He's no staff no claims so. It's not the full team together. The but how he how he plays in how medine feels about him for the rest of the season will be interesting to see what happened within the next year because exists again. He could be a guy that if he plays well puts up some good numbers he can be a flippable guy in the off season or maybe he could be a long term peace. He's always what like twenty four. I think link twenty four twenty five somewhere somewhere in his mid twenty. So he's he's a guy that could be here. Long term is is a he has what I think four years left on his deal kind of getting paid a lot of money. So it's not like it'll be easy to move but I could have said that about deal but as it worked out but that'll be interesting one just because Dream on doesn't seem the guy who's GonNa take the lack of effort in that has been a knock on wiggins in the past so I mean I think I forgot watching some day and they kind of refer to this as a heat check for the warriors culture in that they think they can. There's a lot of lot a lot of winning cultures. Lot Wing cultures. Believe that they can bring anybody in giving informed their their system their their their way of life their way of thinking. And anybody can thrive. And I think this'll be a very good case. Study to see how true that is. Because like I said has been a guy who hasn't made lived up to his potential as a number one overall pick out sees put up good numbers but he's the perennial all star all NBA cow player. That you would expect backed. MVP Expected Number One pick so we can see how a change of scenery works. Well some guys just need that. I mean different different degrees now. So he's not really lighting the fire but Markelle full has played better than a different role though. Ozzy Orlando doesn't have High expectation the warriors. When everybody's out the change of expectations A little bit different scenarios but a lot of people not people change changed teams. James Franchises. They just you see them. Sometimes you throw some time you see them stay the same player because at the end of Day wiggins who is do it agree housing. He's still young ish so he can. He can change but he's what six years in I believe at this point. You GotTa know who he is or if you guys make drastic changes ages dress Iowa play six years in into their careers but you never know also with administering the just How he plays and how he ingratiates himself with the warriors culture but also this is because in theory because does like again you still young? So there's a miles make chance on but you would think that if the war is can help fix up his reputation then it's going to be tougher. Anybody doing because they have I mean they they they. They seem to find a way to get people to buy in and play. Well once they get on their team but Williams might be a good case study for how good that culture is and if they are still really light years ahead of everybody else they like to tell people back back in the day back on deck meeting a couple years ago but Yeah I'm usually to see how that works. That wasn't the only knows me big name again. Dan Delone wiggins. I don't Wanna I to them as big names big name guys like the bronze. ADP's John this is the world. They're they're recognizable names. I guess you could say so. These guys weren't the only recognized names ever traded Industry deadline We'll talk about a couple more of those and see and give them an. I'll give my opinions on in the movie how I liked the moves and if the moves made sense to me right after this break so stay tuned are you looking for the very best.

Dot Com for more INFO breath mm-hmm avenue and not necessarily a surprise. Just an interesting move because he had played it. All this year was Andre Iguodala. He was sent to the heat along with Jay Jay crowder and Solomon Hill and a three team trade that in that the heat believable have both of their chances to make playoff run. The Grizzlies got back justice. Winds ends though Gordy Jiang Dion waiters in the wolves got James Johnson. So from these affected this is and also I mean quick aside Mar.. I mean the last year that often year but the fact that he got the two year extension for three million dollars off of this on whose agent region is but that man needs to be teaching classes on hounds for agents like whatever. Whatever you WANNA call? It needs to be teaching on how to do this because clearly that man is excellent at his. Whatever he's getting paid is not enough again? You just got some way we could slide in a little bit more but the fact that he can sit out. He Comeback Iggy. He looked throughout the last year. Is that again little. You weren't sure if he's still gonNA play all right side he's GonNa play gets traded to Memphis decides. Hey look you as sorry. I'm not playing for you. Guys an A. N. Memphis Adam so maybe he's wrong about that. Evaded Bob Willy Use On that team. But that's neither here nor there And then he gets traded to new team after sitting all you're getting paid to sit home be on TV sometimes uh-huh this chill workout. Whatever and so? We traded to Miami great place to live. I have never lived there. But I've been and it's great I guess I guess more money on top of that. What I'm saying like I don't know what kind of what what kind of negotiation tactics Audrey dials agent US but everybody should employing those because that man clearly knows what he's doing but from basketball aspect This is this. Is this interesting for the heat. Just because like I said There there are points during infection during the playoffs. where he looked like he? He didn't have much left. Shot really well from three in Iraq Assyria many basically just missed every shot from three after that in the Blazers series series and then a little bit in the rafters. But I know the last game that game sixty played really well and so. That's that's kind of what you need from him. You don't need him to be good do throughout the entirety of the regular season. That's not what a guy would is. There for. Is What thirty five thirty six years old at this point US need him to be there for. The playoffs provides leadership because because the heat were a team that outside Jimmy Butler didn't really have too much playoff experience. That would have been playing. Because you've got you've got young is like non Docking Roberson Takahiro. Bamut via like a lot of their guys haven't had having gone through those wars of the of of the playoffs yet. They're going to this. Your haven't done that yet. So adding dollar gives them a guy who's been there done. That can help coach guys through what to expect in the bio scenario. UNFUSSY just another guy who can provide some defense Can hit you can hit a big shot. Every now and again he's not afraid of the moment And also is progressing leadership net and on top of the AD in Jae crowder. Who's WHO's another guy who veteran guide Like I said been didn't can have the finals experience. But he's been in deep playoff. He's been playoff games. He's been in Gone deep in the playoffs. So you'll suspect you can help some legacy. He continued up guys out plus. He's a guy that can play. Defense hit threes occasionally and. That's really all the unique to do coming off the bench Jiffy. I mean if you have a guy that can play defense in the open three. I mean that's basically any teams looking for at this point So that's those guys will be helpful announced when you got your gone up against guys is like Jaanus Middleton's Jakko Who tatum Brown in Simmons? Devise like. There's a lot of good wing players out there so you're gonNA need as many defensive as many as you can throw out these guys. Now see now. Having Jimmy Butler are having a Jae crowder having Having maybe like a Bam if you go small that is gives you more versatility there instead of having just one guy have to defend the best room to play all all the time it just like I said just as and that's what's important for them standpoint I mean they being able to Trade a guy that doesn't that didn't repair for you or did not didn't really didn't play for you at all and get back a piece. Injustice winslow who is much younger than Nikki. Though I mean he's men hurt so that's Digging on a bit of risk there in terms of he's not a guy it's necessarily Reliable in terms of his health reasoning that fits into their timetable in terms. Like they're they're young guys. They didn't really need a guy gave a dollar. Maybe didn't even need a Galley Jae crowder because these guys that are veterans that used to be on playoff-caliber teams and while the grizzlies might make the playoffs or not That wasn't part of the plan this year to be able to take some guys and turn them into in. Yes it takes guys and turn them into justice wins the NL protective first-round pick. Doc Is this is a pretty a pretty good deal from their from their perspective. And I mean I guess they they they will the came from taking on a dollar in the summer but yeah so they they get a young guy who can do some of the things that you would wanna go dollar or a crowded can do as good from three but he knew someone. Same things He'll fit right in with the young guys area. Having that Rosser would Michigan. See how how how he jails Nasi. Now let's get back in. Get back home into playing out from his injury and stuff so we'll see how he fits into every nuts good. I don't hate that trade for all parties involved other than the walls. The walls are just taken on salary. I guess in James Johnson Thereto understand that aspect of it. But that's neither here nor there another Another interesting trade. I guess I won't say big interesting. Other drama got moved to the cavs for basically nothing. I mean John Henson Brandon nine second round pick. I did not know Brandon I was still in the League Gift for him I guess but yeah. This is a weird one because they have Kevin Love actress and Hampson doesn't seem like any those guys whilst they can't go and work with not getting traded was not. It doesn't seem like just now starting to get bought out so it's like what is the point of them. Are you have a couple a couple of months GIADA convincing stay. STAY IN CLEVELAND. If it's going well and it was not going. Well New soapy ops out would you probably will. They can just leave the psych and a great they traded for nothing so it doesn't really matter per se which is like the the fit is weird. You already have you already have big guys now You can't play Drummond's in Kevin Levinger dousing together. That doesn't make any sense there. Dobson Drummond are redundant terms that skill sets so then it's just like already moved thumbs uh-huh advantage of the nurses. Like if you do that now. Happy he'd be in just the weird. That's a weird situation but again I guess we'll have time to figure out to see how he plays. WHOA would sexton in Garland if it works than all right cool then you have a guy who you can keep and if not than US help you ops out rarely but yet Abbas? That was a weird one Probably the legs Couple of other trades. The sixers went on added some gaps on the wings in the form of outbreaks and lead Robson the third from the warriors. They traded a couple of bunch with three second round picks so basically nothing but from the sixers from perspective they needed something point shooting on the wing. Both I mean Is Shooting thirty. Seven percent thirty seven half percent from three on four point. Seven attempts game in Avenue Sixteen points Anglo Anglo Thirteen points shooting forty percent from three so they give methodism give them some shooting which they desperately. We need the help. Space the floor better when you have a you have the way to their roster is currently contracted is a little interesting to say the least just because they don't really have much shooting which I mean if you look there is before the season that's what you Kinda knew but they didn't really address it now try to address it And the boyfriend game. That doesn't Matt like I said before when you're on a bad team you can inflate that number. So they are not. I was not gonNA be expected to score six points per game for the sixers. Now But at least if him in good mom's continued to shoot wealth from three that helps base. The floor have provide Some like I said I'm more open lanes. He's more room for Embiid to work in the post more Called the defense says not to SAG events as much Analysis they just replaced the the Mike Scott's of the world who have been struggling. Take some shots. Maybe our shooting from three when he shouldn't be stuff like that so so they mix in but at least I respect. Elton Branford. Trying to do something to fix the team and it addressed their needs though they probably still could they still need a legitimate like point guard. Backup Point Guard. I guess you could say because. Ben Simmons runs point but I know they talked about wanting him to do more screening more powerful type things they still don't have a point guard that can Zone on point guard that would allow them to do. Those things on the roster is there but we'll see what they can finally be from the by market or something but yet does not. Isn't that a bad. And the warriors are trade. Guys that they weren't we're GONNA need after this year anyway so anytime you can get something for guys they're mostly GONNA leave. Free Agency is good and speaking of guys that were gonNA even agency One of the biggest hauls halls of the day was the clippers. Getting Marcus Morris. They also got They're gonNA keep him by. They got him from the Knicks. And they all have to do with trade. Marcus Twenty twenty I which is gonNa be low so it doesn't really affect them and at twenty twenty three second round pick and then also sent then Jerem Robson to the wizards And from the clippers predicted this is helpful in my opinion. Because he's a Guy Guy who knows adding twenty points right now but again. He was on the Knicks. Now those are not that many people to take their shots. He's not GonNa not gonNA navigate close to that with the clippers but you also need to Provides adjusted more offense also another veteran because again which when your plan Kabir team you want as many veterans Gaza. You can have because they've been there. They're they're not going to be scared of the moment that they're gonna be they're gonNA be ready to go on those type situations and also this more liner flexibility. Because if you have a lineup with what Pat Bath I mean Ghazi lineup with Bell. Capatin blue will PG In more than one go super small and if you wanted to go bigger takeout pat bath and add in Harrell and those are two pretty alive. guess which ability on the wings and you have scoring and shooting guy. who was I think what I think now? I thought saw something on twitter. Where like the clippers? Have what like seven guys. AAC gather shoot like thirty percent or thirty five percent or more from three year. Lewis's thirty five Jamaica Green Low. He's GonNa Marcus take Matter on t shirts thirty six EXP payback thirty six thirty seven Choose thirty nine. PADRES shoots forty Almost forty four percent from three this year. So I mean when you have that kind of when when you can when you can have that much basing on the floor it just opens everything up for everybody else and also just in terms of defensively it gives them another guy to throw out the wings at the on the West or less like the Lebron's the world or the hardens the The WESTBROOK's Brooks I'm trying to think night down mitchells those kind of guys you you have you have many lebrons. That's the nausea Roeber get to the NBA finals. The answer the word when you have guys where you can donate if a guy's at them give them give different looks you don't have to unite Expect a one one guy has to go out there and stop the best wing defender. I mean best wing off the player on the other team like I said it. It makes your team more dangerous could you can. You can do different things you you can try different things with different guys and and go with working. And that's kind of what the clippers will be able to do now with more on the team so that was interesting. He was the guy who I mean the the end at the very least if if not for nothing else the clippers the Lakers didn't get him and I know they were going after him though. It was the what the next one from the clippers. The Lakers if True very weird because they seem like they want in coups mma really bad but then you can't just read Not Making enough money so you need to trade in late. Danny Green's or somebody otherness like. That's too much even for Marcus. Morris North has to him now in my opinion he does what coups do better because now that he could be the third star because he's not that but at least he barrage won't consistent offense in Kouzmin does at this moment not that you can grow into that but right now for this team whose would is not consistent. Give you enough on the offensive end to to for you to go into Canada on him to be your third guy BSN armed nothing else in the clippers has kept from Lakers. which I mean? That's one of your biggest competitions Titians in the West I would say your biggest because there's other good teams nuggets Nice said Nuggets Rockets Jazz maybe even though they are going to be there are other good teams in the Western. I'm not just going to say. It's just the Lakers. But after everything that we're fighting for his just as much and not letting him go. There is almost as good as getting him yourself. Just making sure he doesn't go to the arrival That share you share building with that was important. So yeah I mean not too too many like like I said Baked big-name game traded but now with all of that was still like we talked about I mentioned on the or another podcast. The Capella got traded. They the Rockies won't extra extra small Dell worked out today against the Lakers I mean if they're gonna hit nineteen threes in. Am I gonNA play the best defense that they played argue all season. Then they should be fine. But I mean you can account for that every game but this one game sample size it worked out for Roxie how our holds up over the course of their season in the playoffs. Because even the war didn't go the Hampton five lineup all season. They went for meeting the playoffs when they had to And even then they still had a seven foot Kevin Nado not officially but a seven foot Kevin durant out there on the floor to. It wasn't like they just had guys six seven below so but you know for the Capello. He got traded that wild fourteen twelve tree that was mass But yeah so then you I mean now like I said not too many big big names but it's still a pretty good amount of movement for a trade deadline all all in also so we'll have to see how some of these teams fifty new plays into their How they jail they match? La have have chemistry shakes out Whether the team start to go up or down you never really know as all of the danger with trading at this point season. If your team's doing well you could predict you. You could you could pitching improved them by liberty that also You could also cause the team to aggression because a lot of a lot of lack around chemistry and if you have oh you bring in a guy. He doesn't fit that. BECCA ruined everything. No matter how good he is on the court so admissions you have these teams play out. When is how and how these moves and up shaking out over the Causes us the Nasi into the playoffs. With a lot of these teams made these moves four so after this break we're going to transition into the front office because because the Knicks hired a new president of basketball operations and it was not someone we would've thought but they're we're following a trend that I've noticed this happening mainly just Bass on Basal route happening quite a bit in. It's just I think this may be. I don't WanNa say it's going completed the future but it could be something we see more teams filed if if it works out and we'll talk about what that is and who that guy is rap break some sit sit tight check out the show that's built on the MMA from the UFC two extreme cage.

Now as I mentioned there was a new man in the Knicks Front office in that man is well. I guess former player agent Leeann rose who worked for a creative artists agency like I said as a player You suppose you're going to be be brought on as the president of basketball operations when I suppose he's going to be brought in basketball president basketball operations in this happened pretty quickly after the team fired former eighteen presents the meals and They are following a similar direction in terms of who they hired are that some other teams are trying to file. I mean you have guys like Bob Myers for the warriors. Who is a former agent in his Ozzie? Ozzie they've had success. You've had wrap Linka GEICO. who was a former players in? He again his accessible. Hasn't it's only been what two year that think he is the second year Last year was was awash because the Braga her and all that weird eight David Trimmer Staff But this year's seem to be on better got Anthony Davis so that helps though I mean as a man of versus but I honestly believe a lot out of his job was just not screwing up Lebron wanting to come there because it seemed like Lebron is set on an L. A.. And all they have to do is just not screw Without and I guess I'll give him credit for not screwing it up but is not. There didn't seem like there has to be too too much of a hard sell on the body. Come to Lakers. Honestly the the Anthony Davis thing. I'll give him credit for pulling off getting Lebron there once a browser that makes that makes your job whole lot easier so that definitely helped me. Yes yeah so it'd be interesting to see how he handles that. Because I mean this is a this is a guy who has no experience. Doing what he will be doing is a former employee agent. Some of those players he wrapped include M B Chris. Paul all Devon Booker cat. Coups Ma We also Lebron announcing in the past So admission to see how the transition to a new role and Ozzy whenever you have those player agent stuff. You're always like oh could. Maybe they're trying to get caterpillar tiny Devon Booker. And I'm like maybe they might be because these are good players but they can't because they just signed extensions they're not going to be traded to Tucson but that's more for downtown From the way I see is that if you have a guy who played then at least he knows he should be able to deal with players in terms like he's had to have relationships nations with players on the team car in the Players in general throughout the League so he should be able to work with them and obviously he has he has an idea of how Asians are gonna come at him seeing. He wasn't agent so in those on the tasks have negotiations stuff. That can that agent try to try and also that front office guided tour her So the kind of heat canal sample sizes so that Matt can be helpful just in terms of whereas conduct negotiations in like trade suffolk. Like that you kind of have an idea of how this works already. Even though he has been the one executed But yeah this is a new thing that we've been seeing. I'm also also I know the the mets who will talk about in the second Did this with Brody van. Wagoner hired him. He was a Jacob him to grams. Agent form the along with some other guys but the they hire him to be A nontraditional Front office beaches. Because normally you would think that you guys whether they were scouts or personnel geyser assistant GM's or whatever these kind of guys you would want to hire. But the Knicks going. They're not alone in this Ombu dilution to see if more teams will do this at these guys contained to be successful. Because like I said optic by Mars has been a great success when it comes to this rap Linka is his It's it's still TV Just because like I said his second year you got to see how this this season unfolds in the next couple of years on full view as success or failure though at the various Lebron at the Davis on the same team. So that's a success in his own right on. The mets are kind of a mess. So don't know how you brody just yet But at least able to keep the ground so there is that But yeah just be like fifty dollars do more teams go the the agent than the non traditional route when it comes because in theory you'd want guys that are have been in the front office under Santa Front Office South Like Dad what I think. The just the way sports in all his analytical stuff in different things that's not as important as it was that experience because you have guys that are hired. I think thing who's like the browns hired hide former mets front office guy to be like their GM or one of their front office people like he had never had anything to do with football before for he was abused baseball. Guys just like you see you see teams around round all sports going and finding guys no matter the matter avenue in which they're coming from like hey we think this this could be the Best Guy GonNa hire. Him doesn't matter what his background was. How we got to this point? If we think he'll be good at the job boom we're GONNA go higher and it could work and I just my only worry for the Knicks is that I feel of like. They tried this to agree with Phil Jackson. Now's actors saying you hired a guy who to do a role he had ever previously. You see done. And it was a disaster though he dig it stops so a geiger on credit Traded him so do matter but at least he has that on his resume. He did do that right. If that's the only thing that might be the only thing he did write dirty next but at least he did that. but yeah it's just interesting to see because the Knicks are in a situation where they need. They need a lot the help and I'm kind of surprised they went this route. I know they're slow out that when they fired. I'm Steve Mills that the player player agent could be the rocket they go. The Leon rose seems to be well respected around the league from watching different shows reading. Nevada did he seems to have a lot of respects so it was not nowadays hired. Anybody they seem like the higher. If you'RE GONNA go play around the heart a good guy but just that. Obviously he's never done this job before. And the Knicks job is not easy Jack you step into and take over because there's a lot of there's a lot of pressure to a degree in terms of New York fans are maybe not next fans but like in general. The New York sports teams have won stuff whether it's policy with the Yankees or or like the knock you teams or the football team. Do New Jersey whatever Like the New York is is is a town that used himself as winners so putting together a lack luster putting a lackluster product Out there on the floor is not not something that the fans would want so that is an interesting thing just to see how How quickly he's able to get up to speed because in in theory just like anything you trust that the new for the first time is GonNa Speed was going to be road? Bumps is going to be things that you don't do that you learn from do better the next time and I'm just like do the next. Give him that chance to make those mistakes thousand thousand year. You don't have afraid of dysfunctional as the Knicks have been over the last. How many years you WANNA go back since ewing laugh? I guess you could say Without constantly haven't turn of that's that's basically one of the key components of Having turnover just because they they they they They want things to be. They WanNa find a guy that can fix something right away and if you can't fix the boom they get rid of him and try to find the next guy and it's just like will will they give this guy enough time in order to build it up right and I guess that's house eat To be determined because we don't really know what James Dolan Thanks In terms that stuff also not on the team so sorry Knicks fans but that's not happening But yeah just to see if they give him the time and the resources available to make necessary changes to help put the Fred has in the right direction because if he is able to do that and he'll be revered in New York forever because they are just waiting being not even Leon Union new to win a championship Mooney needs to like like I said I have a seventeen dislike. Put together Back to back competitive additive seasons at this point and that might that be enough and I understand just because the knicks haven't just if they have a good season then something goes than they might have got what earl those earliest mellow year. They had a couple of good years back to back at after that it was a disaster before disaster so it was was just like the the knicks just waiting for someone to find a way to put together a couple seasons of competitive bass was all of this. They're asking for like and I mean it doesn't seem too much asked for from my perspective just because like putting together competitive basketball team should always be the main goal to a degree. Obviously honestly I mean not. Everybody can win a championship. You can't you have thirty competitive basketball teams but you should also be in lottery year after year after year. That doesn't that that's not how to get a fantasy science going to season itself to see how will now see. I'm not a big either. Say like owes is a great move rose of their movies. We don't know I`Ma give this I'M GONNA give we arm rose the benefit of the doubt See how it plays out. See give him time or to makes moves and then once he does good. I'll say that if he does that. Then but as of right now desserts during the state. And maybe he'll be the guy that can finally get the knicks franchise back on track so going from one dysfunctional new franchise to another one guy. I talked about the mets They've got US other team and now they're not going to sell their team and yeah we talked about how that often thrown them. What what's next honestly?

You were this close. You can't see my fingers but let it be known. I'm have very little space between my the index finger my thumb you were that close to getting out of here you were so close Guarantee you method that you could almost almost hey seasonal. uh-huh smell it. You knew it was happening. You're like finally the wilpon will be gone left. Worry about them in their in their lack spending lack of desire I to put competitive team out there on the field after they were gone. You had it in your sights. You knew it was coming. And then of course felt that's completely very thing to have happened. Assailant seemed Eminent just to be like at the very last minute. Nope just author so you don't Known you weren't paying attention to the mets because again as New York area I would understand why you wouldn't So the mets were going to sell their team to WHO Billionaire Hedge Fund Manager Name Steve Cohen. And now they're not Multiple sources have confirmed we. This is from the new. You're post but You can find anywhere. Espn what have you but multiple sources confirmed to the post that the biggest Unsolvable issue the now all but dead said. The billionaire hedge fund manager. Steve Cohen was role that team Aaron. CEO Jeff Wilpon on would have in the transition of power and beyond delays of of his agreement to buy eighty percent of the mets franchise for two point. Six billion dollars live money. I don't know how we'll palms wounded state. That Cohen was informed by Fred and Jeff Wilpon that their plan was for Jeff to maintain total operational control of the mets throughout the pre agreed to five year transition period and then maintain a senior role within the organization. Even after Cohen took over while it's unclear whether the Wilpon who said Thursday tonight they still plan Sala team sought to keep the COO title for Jeff after the transition sources uniformly agreed. Jeff wanted to be part of the decision making under Cohen's ownership and I think and I mean obviously you would think they discussed this before so this isn't something that should break down at the end. 'cause this is the thing that they agreed upon them they knew about. But if I'm a new guy coming in and I'm paying two point six billion dollars takeover team though he he already like what thing was a five point five percent. Excuse me by percent minority stake in teams whose average is buying larger. A percent stake team already zoo. Just buying a larger portion of it so arm that I don't need the guys in the last regime gene having around in town town people like the going behind my back. I'm not necessary to say this was going to happen. But the match you domino going back undercutting what I'm saying and basically just just just being stragglers into a degree and I think that's what was going to happen. I understand the five year to disappear because it means. Yea If you're the Wilpon Sager team today and then boom now now go straight to Cohen immediately. You WanNa do you WANNA gradually you WANNA gradually Lose power of it but I think that's kind of issue was that they didn't WanNa lose power and that's why by May we're trying to find a way to jeff to stay on as some sort of advisor within the team even though come on was technically going to be the owner now number say While it's understandable. There's just not something that if I'm the if I'm the new owner I need right now I don't like I don't need you. Meddling I mean just hanging around Just because like if we're going to clean house we gotTa Clean House. So that's what broke it up though again you should have. This is something thing that should have been agreed upon beforehand. So I would hope he didn't from goes back from the wilpon back there. I Don I would hope coming back out of this at the last minute or just like try to change that that that lasts like hey so like about jeff staying on. What if and hear me out? He did. I'm hoping that's not. What Cohen did Though I mean like I say we don't really know it's not a he said he said so you don't really know who's who necessarily the writer who was demanding. What and we may never know but if that is very what broke it up? The net is disappointing. If from a mess Fan Dan Perspective because the much I mean if there if a worked for a James Dolan the will they still might be honestly but if more for deems own wounds pod be the most hated ownership owners owners owners ownership our award. It in New York. Mets Fans Ends University. Do not like them They the team has been relatively cheap in recent years and then when we spend money on guys it doesn't really work out and I mean as people who were involved in the Birdie main off scandal against wide would-be cheap Alice millions and millions of dollars in Ponzi scheme I would not. I'd be more reluctant to spend my mindless put it that way. And and so oh than you would think are. They finally had their out they can. They can get this very hefty chunk of change boom Bambi gone. They're done. They get their their they get their money. Everybody's happy but I think the will I mean just like certain certain people like to own sports teams. I mean if I enough money I would do so I understand. It's just a cool thing to be able to do. You WanNa say the two owners say that you have like I could understand from their perspective like why they'd it'd be reluctant to let it go even though they claim this going to sell the team. But I mean there's no there's no guarantee that they're going to get somebody that's going to be willing to pay two point six million dollars for eighty percent percent ownership of the team so we'll see how it goes but I mean they should be able to find somebody but it's just like this seemed like the perfect way for the well bar the Wilpon to cash out on their investment. I know they've been losing money. I have I don't know that for a fact I don't know I don't have access to their bank. Statements Tax Returns Masa. But they were losing money The the the they weren't they were making as much as they would have hoped on the team and a lot has to do with not being recently Then this would have been the perfect way to get out and they botched it and I'm going I can't just blame it on them. 'cause I don't know that it's all the way possible. Could very will be deep collins followed as well like saying China finagle and try to finesse things and try to change at the last minute. Just be like hey slow. Hello like this thing. We're GONNA agreed upon. We're not GONNA do that anymore in fear I mean if you're negotiation dislike. You shouldn't let me not say you can't because people I love you shouldn't back out of an agreement or a certain aspect of an agreement at the last minute be like. Hey like everything about a year. Now I don't want I don't want Jeff around more like are are. We already agreed to that. That was going to be a thing that you have to deal with. If you'RE GONNA buy team so now moving forward where the mets go. It's a fair question I don't know Oh and also will that be hang up for the next guy 'cause like I already mention if I'm a guy coming in I want. I want all the old stuff cleaned doubt. I don't need. I don't need like Nolan. Say No but if you buy like and bought a house here but if you're buying a house you're buying an apartment you may not want all the new although furniture that's in there you. You may not want all the old appliances veteran you may be when update you may want to bring your own people. You bring your own stuff in the you. Don't WanNa just keep stuff around us because like you shouldn't nothing that's kind of where they were out with. It is just like Hey Jack was kind of an agreed upon Africa violence. He's GonNa be on. He's going to be a part of the team in some capacity acidy and that men were not a deal breaker for calling in May or may not be the next guy just because not a very like I said no oh by not everybody wants the old regime still hanging around Minnesota hanging over their head because they'll be majority owners of the team hanging around and just being there just the beaver honestly so It mentioned see where they go from. Here doesn't sound like the Commissioners GonNa step in which I mean? He shouldn't have to just as this isn't like a like a like Donald turns situation. We have Legitimate reason to force guys team being a bad owner is not a good enough reason to sell a team. There's a lot of bad owners in sports and not all of them were forced Neva Jim reason and this is not that fraud is this current deal is dead. Not that it I guess not that. It can't come back up but also man Manfred said that he was wearing the wilpon. We'll pause for falling through which I mean he can't because there are the owners still currently you can't Bam owners are understand that but Yeah this is The mets let's just are going to be the mess when you think they're finding not going to be the mets. Then they still end up being the mets Zia. We mean we don't really know. Exactly what halted the deal. But we know Ono that bad for the time being That could very shade. But for the time being it's it's the deal is dead and the White House will have to look elsewhere to get that. Get that money and money were to sell the team. So we'll see how that goes see Z.. As any news on that or maybe you know maybe the apartment is owned forever. Who knows? It's I mean it's just as likely as though instead he's the one who sell team but again takes two to tango. You can't just you need to buy the team in order to eat the salad and this guy is not going to this guy. I don't know who is going to be because is this guy. Seemed like the perfect case. Earth perfect added come in in order to. I'm by the team via has to be interesting to see just another Storyline Afoul throughout this baseball baseball season. That has quite a few of them there including this still potentially fallen through. We'll talk more about that on the an couple days if that actually happens to be an absolute disaster for all parties involved. If that doesn't work I'm going to be enough the dodgers because they don't really need but if you did ask for the red talks you can't you can't have shop to spring training after you tried to trade him and the deal fell through that would that would be the worst case scenario so so. Yeah there's there's quite a few storylines to me following the beginning now with this Baseball season getting ready to spring. Well Spring Training Southgate ready to start up Reporting next week. I believe we add another one. See See if anybody new comes along the by the mets. I mean if you're out there looking for a team known now's the time 'cause the wilpon seemed to be willing to sell as long as You keep jeff on in some capacity though now again I keep saying I can't win the Wilpon for that and it seemed like Cohen had his own reasons for trying to change things up. So who knows who's really fault fault but again if you WANNA buy if you're eighty my out there that wants to buy a baseball team. The mets seem to be up for sale. So now I'm being shot so after after that or not that coming up next we will discuss the XFL starting up this weekend games. Final Saturday and have we demanded Watching this all the football community. 'cause I know like I am but I don't know if fish comes it so we'll talk about that talk about what to look for what. I'm looking forward to play as looking forward to seeing different different aspects of it that I'm looking forward to and just the fact that we still then football I mean that. What does that ever bad thing? So we'll talk about that stuff right after this break. Are you looking to get your college football. Beck's looking to get the latest news on your favorite school team. The Diaz Mc College Football August is your ticket to all things college football doing us as we talk college football from the National Championship. The college rivalries. The bowl game to the heisman has been trophy so which converts is the best. We've got you covered for the big ten as the big twelve the PAC twelve. ACC and everything in between hey download the GMC college football podcast on Itunes stitcher soundcloud Google play or anywhere. You Find God gas just type. GSM in Steve in the search bar and welcome back as much so as as a person that loves football and we'll consume just about anything that involve also. Why me and I watched the Aaron? I mean not. This isn't off while I watch Aaron Hernandez documentary on Netflix. All or nothing special coming out about the eagles then comes Friday yes the seven one seven. Friday is the Friday so by the time you hear it'll already be on private. You had that I'll be watching. Matt I mean I watched hard knocks watched af so it's only right that I continue much. XFL I mean if if nothing more it is more football and when is more football every bad thing I'm he's more than players I mean. Let me but as a consumer and as a fan of the sport more more ways to watch football more leagues awesome Ami Net doesn't affect me at all like I said I watched the ATF. Games mildly entertaining. I mean again not the NFL. So the town of of a little bit lowers the play on. The field is not as great but still football still entertaining. So Oh I know I'm watching. I hope that you'll be watching. I mean look they have you seen the promos they got the maximum for the thing. I mean this team somebody. IDMS MS. That's GonNa give it to you. I mean I like I don't know who's who was in charge of making that isn't the XFL but that person deserves a raise because that was a fire decision Exco and give it to the I mean it's the perfect marriage. I mean if you we need a reason to watch the games before at least give them a shot for an the fact that they're they're they're they're theme song quote Unquote Can. It'll be excellent excellent. Give it to you. I mean I mean I. I don't really know what more you would need honestly but I'll give you some more if you if you want more reasons to watch. Obviously we discussed Some of the rule changes. So we'll get to some of those In a second. But for starters arturs I mean the main thing that's GonNa come out of this was gonna be the players and ozzy allow these players. are former former. NFL players. That maybe didn't make it. They're trying to find their way back into the league. I mean mother they af though so I mean they didn't. They ended up having the money to afford it Because of their guys out there that way to par lay down data play into into being able to get on the NFL roster and stay on it for us. I mean as doc made a Greg Ward for the Eagles was the guy that that was af guy Is He. He went through some other avenues. Well he was a formality. F Guy. That's now on a roster L.. Most likely be on one next year as well think who else would it change in Sullivan. I will leave the packers. cornerback he was out of the AFC a couple other guys too. But I mean it's just for for these guys the The players that Lisa's gives them another opportunity to have shot to get back into the league. Which means I actually the reason? Why all these guys are playing But yeah couple couple interesting names. One of them Being Quarter quarterback excuse me a quarterback Landry Jones the use-of-force quarterback signed by the XFL back COSCO's Bob Suj- which I mean at the very least should be familiar with that slack. That should allow for some better play just because he's used to that system and as an idea of what he's doing is former a steelers backup I mean like he was. He's back all along he's the guy that if you if he's if he's good health wise any shows some things he's a guy that could potentially essentially parlay this back into another NFL conflict. I mean they'll they'll sign just about anybody to be back. Seems like there's I mean there's multiple guys anyways uh-huh cap but that that's not a topic for completely different debt. Be If he shows something he could be touchy back in the League. Another Guy Carter Jones who was a college standout if he will probably should've left after that Ohio state the championship decides they initially year. Deanery work on this favor. I mean I'm not saying wait a minute. First Round pick anyone. But the the less gave for people to scrutinise Putin stretch scrutinized and criticized the better because like I said once you belong games out there on film they have more time to look at more reasons to talk about. Why you're not as good As you as other people think you are. That's why those guys Mike we have quarterbacks offense to him but you look gallic Mr Bisky who started for one year North Carolina. In what before Deshaun Watson Patrick Mahomes who had way more years on him but because we're more years is more than Morrison Moist into pick out. More things criticize meant that that causes guy may have that one year starter of starting college. Starting playing ain't irrational has left to making progress on those guys because there's less up the slush scrutinized saying things happening to us us. Some things to was hurt. But if it wasn't her and others wwl Saint Joe Borough cushy. Go ahead of them. I'm not one of those drug things good. But again he's he's he had had he democrat. Much House that came to L. Shoe was a last year Season cowed wise from a quarterback. Read our scene but again but like we can talk about two to his to a play in the championship game to had all last season to add this season. I'm for more stuff. You pick adding scrutinized so it's not surprising but yeah so then work out for Jones this nice chance for him to get back and and Get back into that. Get back into that spot. Liden show people he still is capable and he's one of the is one of the people the one of the names I recognize and I think that's the biggest that's going to be probably the biggest issue for this league at least in the beginning just the fact that they don't have that many guys you have to be a diehard football fan to be like. Oh I remember that our our our I remember this guy that kind of stuff but I think that will be help out if the play on the few good the penalty killers go then again people watch and love football in this country so if the player. There's good day we'll watch it. They will consume it So yeah I think so. Get guys like that have Atlanta Jones Card Al Jones. Some of the other names of one another new might recognizes Kony ealy defensive end us. What a second round pick for the panthers? Sartison Awesome Games for them bounced around a little bit after that so only twenty eight so he has a shot to to try to get work himself. Back into league may be GMC Is Get on training camp roster maybe make maybe sneak into a fifty three situation another guy. I'm kind of interested in is flowers and Tampa Bay Viper. US Afghanistan Florida Guy in college. Who Play quarterback was what was basically as you're running back And he's Kinda going to do a little bit of both things. That's it has both a quarterback and running back in in this league and the one that the multiple four passenger lesson or something like that could benefit a guy like him just because he's the guy that may not necessarily play quarterback he can social off that arm arm if need be sees a guy. I'm going to be keeping my eye on. Just because that he's I remember him from his college and he was an electric guy with the ball in his hands is and see how it translates over and he city a fun gadgets have guided something that guy no the the league find try to find guys that can create those highlight plays so that people don't WanNa tune into one to keep walking week after week after week and this is the kind of player. Yeah that could provide some of that stuff so and I mean I was ever with no no offensive defensive guys but everybody lows arrows offense so having guys that or explosive offensively could be interesting. Probably one of the most noteworthy guys in terms of name is Mark Marquette King. I'm the punter. Even though there's not really much need for putting them in his house he need for conduct as you say it's like The punters would be considered a noteworthy guy but he's a former all pro was Sprightly cut the raiders. When Jon Gruden got there but I mean at least he's a guy who could ask some flair some possess the league and he's a guy that people will recognize by name if they're watching back? Oh Yeah I remember that early early Abbot with this guy. He's giving guys people Williams remember so that means in the now. See some changes that we've talked about In the impasse with some of the ones. I'm looking forward to are the no extra extra points novice kickers but Alex neither more points scored so the Options to go for the one two three point Extra point attempts to now see that chance to go get up to nine points. For a touchdown that's pretty cool Monopoly they back up the double before passing if you are discussed overall. That Nar may not necessarily V quarterbacks Also like what was it the kickoff role as interested that is because it allows. How's IT allows for more kicking yet? A kicker dwelt from thirty. But every block will be lined up at the posing teams thirty five yard line and returned team box will be lined up at their own thirty five yards away. Only in the kicker receiver can move until the ball is caught and then after that that will allow firm Would in theory better return the more return. So that'll be interesting. I I understand why the NFL outlawed just because not necessarily a lot of allocate returns is because it's not a safe but they're still exciting. Plays when you when you when you have a guy that can return kicks and it's it's a vital part of your team Flip field position and also just this electrifying part of the game. Just like it'd be Devin. Hester was one of the one of the one of the more fun on player to watch US looking for the right word but one more watches because every time we got the ball you thought. Oh my gosh she can take it to the house and I mean he didn't super bowl so that so that was interesting but yeah no the. XFL I'm going to give it a chance this week. Four Games out of doing that much so I think what the first game team is when it to to Clark on ESPN ABC seasonally until Youtube Clark on. ABC five o'clock on Fox and then Sunday unto five again so he's only two games or not. Only the last two games for Saturday to game Sunday. So if you're not if you're not doing too much earlier in the day you still five your night are worried about that. Game should be over the the second issue over. By what like seven. Thirty eight o'clock You'll be good to go if you want to do something which Saturday night but like I said. Football is football. I will watch watch it because it is football. I imagine I won't be alone. We're going to watch football as the guy that supported the AF until decided to disband i. There's no reason not to support this from from Irish because now he's not support just because I football Just like any of these guys showcase showcase enough ability to be able to get back into league. That's what they're doing this for their. Don't give up on her dream to play in the NFL and this is an avenue for them to continue to do that. So I Komo Good Field Story. I want to see these guys. These guys be on. NFL Roster next year and maybe make impactful plays for their teams. There'd be musical thing I mean that's why I watch sports. Sports are the greatest soap opera that you could put that. TV put on so. I'll be tuned in also. I mean like I said they have s gonNA give it to you is the unofficial theme song I mean I don't know how if you I mean I guess I don't know what will unless you just Mexico which I mean if you're if you aren't then we have bigger issues under say there seems that there's enough there's noth- likely give it a try. If the products bad products man the disease seems to be enough to at least give it a shot this weekend again maybe even next week Gets his legs under it. But yeah you got to. I don't understand why we when these shock that's all I'm just going to give it a shot. Whatever whatever happens happens from there so after his next record would come back and talk about? NFL teams so switch from Mexico south of the NFL NFL NFL teams. That are deciding that coordinators are necessary anymore and it's it's new thing teams are doing it. Our I don't know how I feel about it but it's it it seems like it may be a thing that's going to continue to happen. We are now so we're GONNA have to discuss it and see if I think it's a good idea because I'm not. We'll we'll talk about what you guys. I'm not really sure if it's a good idea now but it's already happening so it was not much we can do about it so we talked about that rafters last break. Check out this build around women of the. NFC INVICTA abstain Delatour autour championship. We got the fights covered. It's the golden state media concepts women's MMA podcast. The latest news of of coming fights discussions of previous matches. Join us as we talked to in about the biggest names in women's mixed martial arts past present and future when it's the women's game you know where to listen to the golden state media concepts women's MMA podcast yeah So if you're not an eagles fan going to be paying attention but if you're or if you are the you know that their office coordinator search coordinator end with them not finding offense coordinator now they interviewed is but just didn't end up happening and what they decide to do. Something that Four nine hundred this past year and the rams in the past so they can change it up because there wasn't a good this past year so understandably so but yes yes. They decided to go the no offense coordinator out. They have a they have the head coach. WBZ News GonNA call place in has follow play. Since he got there but now they have they have run game coordinator at passing game coordinator. They have some senior. They have a senior assistant. They have Position Coaches they have never pass game analyst. I believe in assistant run game. Coordinator Cornell Davis have a bunch of titles for people that you don't really know exactly what that means but they replaced instead of enough to coordinate They have a bunch of different guys. Do a bunch of different things and this is interesting because like I said it's something that the forty niners did this past year. Austin Bay was successful. Some that I think my talks about. They might not hire a defense corner. This year. micro will be more hands on on defense. which because at the Hoover Dam pease retired retired? DNP's Yeah No. He retired year. Yeah he retired From from the step down from the titans I mean especially with down on what in the middle of January. That one is kind of hard to get a guy maybe get a suitable guys because anybody that a lot of people that had those kinda openings may have already filled them at this point so it's kind of difficult but yeah smack talk about them not having a Defense Coordinator and just this is. This is very new generation. Football was like hey I mean I get it to a degree just because like hey look on both sides if I'm and if I'm a head coach right say my office and I'm GonNa be calling the plays then Franz the purposes Omnia Gordon here because that's I mean that's basically after coronated wasn't he's not gonNA plays but it doesn't mean I can do everything myself. I want you guys to help me. Come up with game plans scripts come up with the help scheme of new plays to attack even in certain way so I think that's that's why just having a guy that is officially named Alfred. Screener is necessary as having guys that can do the job of what needed would would would fill. I know that the eagles have been team. That was trying to find that offense. Amylase struggled has hasn't been as good as it was since Frank Reich left and I don't know that's because it might grow wasn't as giving offense coordinator Frank Reich was off just because he was asked to do different things than Frank Reich was and maybe he's not has good as those things or what have you but I mean he talks about him being too would agree to passing game coordinator just helping design pass concepts and plays ways to get people open passive announcing struggle for most of the season. If you didn't know and if you didn't know again like I said the all or nothing series on Amazon Prime mince coming out will be out today by the time you hear this but if you want to look at that you can take a look at that. It'd be interesting to see how that how that works I'm just like Amazon's Hard knocks if you didn't know I'm via teams are going artist because if the like if you have your coaches corner players which is basically what office coordinator was doing in the past just like you call. Kuala players organized organized. The game plans the scripts. Ozzy would have imagined he was doing this Obam self though technically. I don't know but I'd imagine you doing this. He will do all by himself See that's what that's what the head coach does now than it's like all right. Do we really need somebody replace under the label offense coordinator if we have if we have enough guys on staff to do what an office coordinator would do. And I'm like okay. I kinda see the vision does like if the obstacle is GONNA IS GONNA be a guy isn't really calling plays then. It's never really going to be his his offense and I think that's kind of the that's could be issue. You're the obstacle NATO non hyphen struggles to degree depending on how. Oh how much clout your head coach as you get the blame for because because again you office coordinator but if you're not calling the plays like how much how much effect you have on the on the game day stuff like you might. You might be able to. Maybe you struggled put a game together. Maybe your script was not good Maybe we some the schemes and Conflict Yukon To come up with just didn't work out of the week. All right. That's fine but you're not the one on Sundays or Mondays Thursdays. Whenever you're playing calling the plays and making they can those in game decisions from an office perspective? You may have some input here there. But you're not the one with the final say you're not the one making decisions so it's like do you really need a guy to be labeled the offense coordinator if his if that role technically isn't really that necessary talked about what the eagles they have they have. They have multiple guys on their officers to have doing a multitude of things that I don't even know exactly what they all are only they know Like I said if you have guys job is to help figure out running plays in running schemes in concepts and designs double tax defense when you have a guy who's a passing game coordinator do that same thing obviously for the past than they are the what. What does the offense coordinator do not doing any of that not calling plays then like what is he doing this yes you will again? This is not all the teams but I know the way the US on their their game planning south is like a collaborative efforts. If you already have different coaches giving input on that they do need lead against maybe you have one guy help but together and ugly what they are. A senior offensive analysts are is assistant or Ham sending let me let me double check forgot. I think it's a assistant the will be doing like I said if that is in fact the case then and what the need again they have seen after the system maybe he will help the game plan suffer help with the versus place at all these all these teams have something. That's the case then do need a guy to be labeled offense coordinator. I think that's the thing that that contains within us. Family needs to be. We need to become accustomed to that and not like freak out. I know until a lot of Egos Andrew freaking out because like Oh my God. They don't not school nature like yes but if they have a bunch of people that can do the role of the office coordinator then make what supporting having a Guy As as a name just I mean all all that really means is that you have a guy to point fingers at when things go right. Basically what Mike Rowe was for the past season from the user. Just a guy that it allowed you to point a finger at somebody and I mean that's really all that's at the end of Dad's what most fans those are most fans that's looking for just are things are going wrong. I mean things aren't going. Well who do we play nicely with no office coordinator Singapore's right at that coach. which I mean good for him for being willing to take on that pressure? But that's the that's the thing with the Avatar. In even coordinators things are going great the head coach and all the players get credit when things are going bad as like always WanNa finger at this guy. I wonder finger at that guy and now with it won't do anything you just it makes it. It's it's more ambiguous In terms of who you who deserve that blame it again. That's nuts. Let's not necessarily be important aspect of it but because I mean 'cause eagles have sex with this in the house This last this last This past season season they may be more teams to go to this. Earn even like from a defense desirable. Italians have success with this but they don't really have quick defense coordinator but they have. They have have their head. Coach calls the plays in or they have another position. Kosher wherever call the plays if these teams that success because as we've talked about NFL's a copycat leave so they they will see things that has won't try to duplicate them and this is successful in terms of another team being able to function well without without office coordinator than I don't WanNa say that because again they have a lot of they have a lot of Raynham offensive staff. Jobs today is not he's not anybody's boozing they're now they're losing positions us have. You're just titles different so just because you're not labeled an offense according to Quantico go does not mean. I'm doing the things that offers according to wouldn't do us don't have that necessarily titles so that mission see if like what what what teams outcome with. That's monetary whether that's just the way you're viewed as a as a Guy League. Obviously when when off is doing wells like all right we're going to interview. The offense. Coordinator differ their head. Coach in Dallas is like a common thing people haven't if you're not ahead optical anymore you're the passing game coordinator or the running game coordinator your the Tasking tasking analysts or senior assistant. Like how does that view how people look at you in terms of findings potential potential roles for head coaches and things like that that'll be that'll be another thing. Ask just because there's no official like Os present offense coordinator. This team of offense is doing really well than hardly Carlino who deserves the credit even to a degree like for different cultures that call the plays the plays in your erased obstacle in the labs coordinator just helping you throughout the week in organism stuff. He's not really you don't really know how he'll be as article Nader until he's he's actually in charge of calling the plate so if you're not gonNA doesn't really call the players anyway that I'm just like all right then. I could see why you wouldn't be needed but I did. Not every not every coach has that kind of clout Coach has that ability to be able to be like. Hey I'M GONNA call it off of the players though. Obviously every coach wants to be that that. Yeah I mean if these guys were often coaches before this and they got the head coach for this new one continued calling places. If that's what got you to here at but yeah interesting is interesting. I don't I'm not sure how it's GonNa work. Having all these different voices always different people with all these different titles in their own but if it does work than this could be the we see more and more and more throughout the league like I said. NFL Copycat League there in in a sense copying this from the forty niners. So who may run out of Africa. I don't know if I think 'cause when when Matt leflore laugh to go to titans officially when the rams to coordinator really higher off the coordinator after last season when the when the guys left remember which year but I just know the This past year we saw that way because our offense took a step back though allowed to have to do with the fact. They're all lying stunk and The quarterback progress. I don't know the had anything to do with the offense coordinator and that's kind of what's going to come down to the day no matter who you have with all these facts these fancy titles in the different positions or whatever if the players don't make plays who who's who has what they doesn't really matter you need guys they're gonNA go out there and make the plays plays make the throws make the catch made the blocks break tackles off on stuff and the the what what people are labeled as as part of the staff aren't aren't really gonNA affect that. Get onto the fuel on Sundays so long story short as much as obviously having or not having office corny they will be the the well talk the talk about paying the inundate players gotta make plays they making plays. Then you'd no one will even known even take note even pay attention if you don't have a quote Unquote Offense Coordinator goriest known Ray. Pay attention to them when the when the niners were doing that this past year it wasn't like Big Big deal just like Oh gosh hands a great play call all right. That is all that matters. uh-huh emergency so that we so that's the storyline if you if you're in negotiations to follow throughout next season is to see how offense looks with all these different pass game in running Nader's analysts in assistance in different guys. Let's see how this new dynamic on the team works because if it works well doc than boom. There's hal ago it's disaster than those in trouble and there might go back to have enough to coordinator we will know but just to see if this is a trend that continues to this. Just like a few coaches China be trying to Zig zags but lies. I feel like this this this could be some. That is more consistent in some this team the future especially if you have more these coaches that our our caller on plays this like I was really not necessary as it once was. If you're not calling the police and lies coaches one hundred plays so maybe office. Coordinator donator isn't really that necessary so that'll do it for me here. Another episode the G. S. M. C.

Barstool Rundown - June 24, 2019

"The. All right. It's the rundown. It is June didn't miss a beat. It is June twenty seventh. Yeah. Fourth twenty four. I was going to say the way carrots looked at me. I got it, it is presented by Dunkin donuts Dunkin go Tuesday. You can get a great deal to your favorites to Reagan cheese wraps for two bucks to bagels with cream cheese. Cheese spread for four in two bacon, and eggs, cheese croissants, five bucks in my humble opinion, that's a tough deal the beat. That's my go-to. That's my go-to sense. That's like a line. That's my go-to set. Oh, there were spires spider do a bagel cream cheese elsl around the bagel cringes. We got one of those things don't go to a great deal for two four or five dollars. Thanks. America runs. A Doug is participation may vary. Limited time offer. Exclusions apply. Dunkin Goto also presenting the second annual barstool awards tomorrow night. Seven thirty pre show fall by the wards at eight you can watch on site or in the app, you dress. We were. I mean, I think I might be down Miami. What are you doing that? I think I'm gonna cover the DNC debates on their Democrats, libs, getting together on south Florida. Nice. Where? I like that. That's when duty calls, that's, that's the progression of PMT their grit tour, which is in, like Malibu. And he stopped we drove through Malibu. We stayed inside much saw a video of you in. Apartment that looked like there was on an island in the middle of the Pacific. We stopped by some very nice places are place. Wasn't that exceptional, but we were in a lot of rich people's houses. One thing I noticed about rich people. They don't lock their bathroom doors. They don't have locks in their bathroom later. Yelich Juerg offs house and have a bathroom lock. I think Blake Griffin's house didn't have a lock in his bathroom FRANZ house every just like. Well, I usually do, but I I always looked to see if there's a lot there. All these rich people has just don't have locks on their bathroom. Yeah. It's like it's a rush for them if they get caught taking a picture shit a way to live. I don't know exactly. Do you watch nervous walks on the bathroom? See their y'all only pours have locked. No. I, I do in the place. I live now, which I don't own do your apartment or your department. I do not in my name talking. I was I do, so it's probably an older house. Well, no, we re did the whole the oil. Oh and you got you. Awesome. New rocks. We look down at you. And you're like. How's this for segue? Speaking of rich people Cam Newton is gone viral. He's on a airplane. I guess he's going to Paris fashion week late notice. So he didn't get the right seat, or seat that he wanted he tries it by first class seat for fifteen or not first class. I think business for extra legroom. All more. About. Wouldn't you? No. K Markle bog at first saying, the guy's insane, not to take it. I walked it after because I think it was an wildly insulting offer from Cam Newton and a six hour flight like up the difference for legroom. He was probably playing like below market value for that. Like that seat probably cost more than fifteen hundred bucks. That's expensive cross country flights are. So to me like he handle righty setback down. But offer that was that was an offer you have to refuse to me. There's two different things going on here. What you're saying is right from the negotiating tactic like the value of that seat. Plus, how much money you know, Cam Newton has you can ask for more. But when it comes down to it as long as the seat, you're putting you in is not like the worst seat in the house. I think you take the money. Yeah. It's like a dream scenario if you're if you happen to be a falcons fan or if you're a Saint and Cam Newton walks up. And he's like, hey I want to buy that seat from you. That is like the stuff dreams are made of your like absolutely not not to ten. Jack to stick it to but to go back on you, Kevin. The point is that guy chose to buy a seat that costs more than fifteen hundred bucks to begin with more. So like if you already paid it like, if those basically, like almost flying or they, it's still hundred but he on. That's like, so I complained about this, when I went to London, they kicked me out first class, I'd ticket. I had the ticket. How did that paid for the ticket, because their other people on European flights anything goes, I flown to your place. I had my seat stolen twice. You didn't check in time zero an hour and a half before the took your seat because you didn't check in time. Yeah. Wow. That's, that's someone else got upgraded or some of those, they sell, which I didn't know which is insane more first-class seat, then it's Massar apparently. Wow. That's tough. You didn't just get like bullied and they came up with an excuse. No, no. That's using that analogy. If I was in my seat in someone's, like, hey, here's fifteen hundred bucks. The causeway more chose to sit here. Very reason. What's your opening offer? If you're Cam Newton and you start with five grand. Because he's working also. How do you pay that does? He have a checkered easy just people have hypothesized. I think you trust cash up, you can go probably that's why pick there may be a lot more. Although I mean, isn't that technically a free ad? So I'm not trying to knock you down. I got a rep from my dad here. They're not a sponsor the rundown. At least I didn't say the word this time. I've been getting pretty bad about that on the show we have to over dub cash up. Sometimes speaking of ads mpm. T. N. B M T, our favorite watch brand also has great shades for the summer that we love their stylish between sixty and ninety five bucks. Get fifteen percent off free shipping, return going m v. Mt dot com slash run dot is this the seat the then usually use. Deep. That one. Dan showed me, the e card that my parents sent them. It's like beautiful like little animals kissing like big animals. I love that. Your parents are just getting around the card thing. Oh my web one point. Oh my dad still we'll try like Email links. He doesn't know you can lie. I'm not facts links, and he's defending Kirkman, am which is going to be one of the all time trials actually is actually. So I Eric this afternoon as well. And she confirmed that, Mike, porno, Esquire representing the company and myself in this loss. They are my understanding is that she is working right now on filing a motion to Smith I against that I would like to represent be represented in court and have our day. But you know, I think they're trying to get it to Smith's right now. Which, I think legally, you would normally say, yes, obviously, this is a bogus bullshit case. But, you know, like in the state of Massachusetts. He's fucking judges. A corrupt the state's corrupt it's I mean, I think it's seventy five percent chance. This goes to trial fifty percent chance. We lose a civil case twenty percent chance that goes criminal in like twelve percent. Chance I go to jail the other that salary. Unbelievable. Imagine. I, I wanna set up like some sort of that would be the first of its kind of podcast from jail. I have no idea what the law is the only thing that I know is criminally spe-. I mean damages there are none, because I mean, there's no damages, but whether it's inherently just saying you're somebody else recording. I have no idea. I have no idea what the laws. I know this Kerr tone is you pronounce his name, courtesy tone, something think so Carta tone in my dad talking at each other. That could be one of great ULA bus that this court case may never end within just talking at each other for like, maybe years on St. it would neither even realizing the other speaking like the court would end and they would still be there. Four AM. Well, yeah, it's quite the case you're gonna make a movie about this one day, John Grisham movie, twenties, actually, countersuit, or is that just like there hasn't been yet? But Erica, did walk in my office the other as I talked to dad about the suit, and maybe that close your ears, but she had just put him on mute and continue with work because he just kept going around circle that is why they'll call that. I wanna see what your dad where's into the courtroom like what what is presentation. You seem like a bow tie guy. He's a thing. Yeah. Older suits, kind of type thing like I could you see him going out and getting like a new a new suit for this big moment? We gotta Milton's that's suits like five years ago, we did deals with Millns. He went in. He also been called in radio and thought we were trying to gut you him because we're like, is Kirk have cases in the right size. Like you're not gonna trick me into telling you what's going on. I've been to smart. It's like you're our lawyer. I wanna see him doing like the courthouse press conferences trial. Gaggle just using that time to complain about, I need, I need a courtroom sketch. Oh, yeah. It's gonna be something we should have the guy that did the Brady courtroom sketch, four. Little little event, not so little wanna Premiera championships. That's great country has to offer star tonight, college World Series, the university of Michigan playing Vanderbilt two out of three starts tonight of Andy's favorite because they got that freshman kid who's basically unhittable, Michigan's been one of the darlings the last hundred years in any sports last team in turn amount underdog entire way, haven't lost Omaha beat UCLA. So it's a great moment. If this goes the game three I gotta fly Doma I woulda gone today, but have lady Gaga private showed no big deal tomorrow. More importantly, we have Dunkin awards Jim hosting so we get through that also blogs for dogs on Wednesday. So it's busy. What do you guys think chance, I don't know. I don't know shit about college baseball is that the Vanderbilt has the whistling guy, right? Anchor down. They've got some guy that whistles really loud, any noise everybody for a fan a fan. I think. Vanderbilt. Why don't they kick this guy out of the crowd? Yeah, thought it was a whistle. But he's a human whistle. He's very good at doing this. I've always wanted to be able to do that to like bite down on your your veggies. I don't know how you do it like great. I can't do that either get cabs and you can get like people's attention really. It's an alpha move walkout of the sidewalk and you're like this can't whistle that way, whether you get to that. Never. Also, I the bet with David price he came at me says he's vandy guy friendly wager. I get to a pizza view in the dugout with him I offered terabytes to Butler for a week, which I thought was, yeah. That I thought about governor over, and people get Jared terrace. I dunno more insulting to me. Emmy said, no, I don't want characters. I mean I wouldn't care this. What first of all, crops, second of all he doesn't wanna put me in a demeaning position where like we're best fucking fronts. Why, why would he accept as a victory, one of his friends as an indentured servant? He would never want to your friends. You know it's not. No, it's not it's entered service he, he doesn't want me to do his bitch work if he wants that yet. But like in said, he would have you as his Butler, not me. Why would I be involved in where you lose or like you lose I have to be as Butler like? In my head on it'd be right? I think he would have accepted it if you offered to be. I don't think he would've near him. I don't think it'd be very good bowler. I, I don't think I'd be I don't do any of that. I don't know how to wash clothes your thing to do vacuum. Very good vacuuming. That's weird. Yeah. That weird vacuuming is very. Yeah. You don't know how to vacuum. That's what I'm saying. I know how to do it. You think would be the best Butler in this office? Biter spider. Be good Butler. Yeah. Yeah. On many household skills will get you learn. Yeah. The Butler look more bowler, just minder says they just answer the door. Right. I only know about Butler's. Learn fresh prince. That's I had. I keeps on the when I was at Royal Ascot, I got wildly lucky the guy who worked at our hotel, the Dorchester was like a story from way back, one half Iwa half Danish be worn. But they had a Butler, and he came and put a little a florist, who came up like cut bef- lower for me to match my she. That's next. Yeah. You're a cleaner author is like to work for the Queen. So he's probably a little more more experienced in England just in general. It's like a cultural thing they know how to make good bowlers. They're doing it. So let's your Mets Kevin. I haven't seen video. Right. Is there video of this altercation now that I know there's no video with reporters, you're right there might be? I've heard audio I am not the audit. Yeah. So basically one reporter asked him why they didn't go to their closer Diaz for five outs. And Mickey Callaway response that they basically have a rule that the report four out saves no find out saves and then they followed up again, saying, well, would you have the power to do it if you wanted to, and he did he took great offense that? So that's when I got testy. And he's they said like why don't you put in? He said, why 'cause you want him? And that was really hit. And then after that is supposedly when like, supposedly, so you don't hear. That's definitely happened. I'm just saying. I don't know if there was anything else that led to it. It was like a couple to here. No, I haven't heard now. That's like Bobby Baena the Mets the should do. I mean, this is this is this is so Mets territory. This is when they were throwing Bleacher reporters, this is when Tony burners are trying to fight minor leaguers, when k rods dad was trying to find the team. When Olbermann I was trying to fight Adam Ruben. This is what we do. It's from the ownership down a team that wants to win that bad. That's what it strikes me this little pond. This is actually only running joke of yours that I really fucking like it. Drives me crazy. Just openly admit it 'cause I hate you for it. What dupage owed? It's a stupid JR good. And I hate anybody who plays into it at all. He's owners present. So confident I your friend. He's a fucking who leisure your meeting Franken invited us on the booth. We watch them Mets game right next. I have never seen an owner as invested in what to win as bad. He was literally. Instead of the Mets game talking about. Putting them rather than with the fucking team. I mean everyone why went there? And how do you know he's a businessman like yourself? Yeah, should not associate with a fucking failure weasel, like he owns the Mets. He's should all be lucky enough to be that big of failure own Hagins to him by his dad. He's a little bitch. Boy, give it back. I want him to shut the fuck up and give like you get a real GM was not a puppet and let him actually build these terrible. Everything do you think the wilpon have any say in, like these little rules that go on between the GM and the manager of? Okay, here's you'll do four out save three things like that. You think that the actual ownership has there in his ear about that? I love that. Yeah. With you, like you got to have an owner that, that is just really committed to everything has her hands on everything as a Redskins fan. Dan Seiders the best thing that's ever happened yet. You know, I was work right on her involve there's under. They both want to win back. Jeff wilpon Southam, every picci's hanging on every pitch. Hate is. I do think that they should bring up Tibo. At some point, you might as well. Yeah. Just like brings. What if I go to the Michigan game, maybe it'll be there, and I'll send my regards? Yeah. Jeff fucking weasel. He. No. NBA David silver today said, I think official David over Michael silver mob, silver. What's his name? Adam silver, silver, Adam silver, who I consider the best Commissioner sports, I think most people universally do, so they're going to ban the word owner on the PC side, seems ridiculous like companies on your team, you own them. I was thinking more about it. And I don't know where it's coming from. There's obviously been the LA clippers guy, the plantation stuff in if the majority are league is African Americans in, they have a problem with the word. I, I probably, I don't get fucked. Like I think it's stupid and PC's. But if it's just gonna make this move to make your life easier. It doesn't like, first of all, I think he knows people most people are still gonna use the term owner changing governor. But he's on the record saying it's officially governor and he gets looked progressive. And like nobody actually the people who are actually offended they they're not they're not move. And the people who wanted to still be called owner are still gonna. You're still going. Yeah. If you're one of these people out there that is pissed off about the whole factor, you're not going to start calling the governor, you're going to keep calling it owner. I actually agree with Dave. I'm surprised that that was your take on it. It's like these, they are your employees if they're the ones who are upset about it. Well, listen concerns. Right. Because it's a need like it doesn't hurt mall. Exactly. And plus governors such a cooler word known like now. I will never use it. Not, because I'm pro will never think you'll never DL in baseball, right? Know they've changed. In my brain. Right. And, and I don't think it's offensive I but if we're sitting here and it's a headache, you can just not deal. With makes your employees happy. I want to say that they've been doing this for a long time. Actually, I don't know if I believe that and then have as out the word owner years ago, I'm like, yeah, I don't know. I don't think so. So. No, they definitely. I've heard them say owner recently. Yeah. I mean, it is crazy, very again, if people are that upset about, what was he last one can eat change that the like is that his power to Mark Cuban going to be like, okay. Adam, you told me I'm gonna stop call myself. No, I don't think, well, I. I was just thinking, could you find them? I don't know that you could be interesting only thing I get worried about is. I just, I know the other movement that I've seen recently are people talking about how the draft is like against human rights, and that people should get to pick where they where they play. And like that would be keeping your players happy. I like I have no problem doing something doing this for something. That's like inconsequential, which is like where do you eventually stop on the ship? Those this is business issue. The draft is business decision. You I mean it it's a private company, theoretically, that's why it's owned right lane. Right lane. You start. Exactly. I think it's very piece. But again, if it's gonna make your life easier. That's the main thing, this isn't sometimes I get agitated where like a school will be like you can't celebrate Halloween or Christmas song. That's more public. So I don't think you should make those this is a business. This is your employees you're doing it. So that's the difference I had to bring this up. And I've been falling this from before. But Wayne jetski. Convinced saw to go to fire island. I've never been fucking lost start all over again. Yes, I woke up. I was so confused. Like I, I remembered like kind of obviously, long during his little fuzzy I woke up at, like ten o'clock, chef Donnie were there, and I went into the bedrooms in the house, and I was like what the fuck is like, oh my God. Do we leaves on ocean beach for lapse in memory where I go, I didn't remember him going drugs, lapse of memory, a blackouts? Not going to get better. Black. Yeah. It's not gonna it's gonna heal. I was I was the freaked out, Dan leaves on ocean beach like housing. Oh my God. He didn't know how to get back and then we kind of hit him up, and he told me what happened so that made sense, but yeah, then I kind of just continued I passed out in. I saw the lead up of like, yeah, you're gonna come come. He like base Hemi them took in there and then just got so shit face and passed out, he left on the fend for himself, even this is the wealth of Deir though was blacked out as well. He told me he was he could forgot how to speak English. He said he was only speaking Africa. And see. That's that's awesome. Yeah. I get drunk around friends that are from New York. I, I like Dopp that New York accent Zog. It's hammered he sleeps. Pretty cool. Change. I think he had a great weekend. Yeah. It's like if you click on lose friends, sometimes you just assume that I is having a great time every man for self in these sort of. I every time I've been lost in a public place. I've had an awesome time the best. Now fire island's a little different because you have to take a boat on and off, like if he was truly losses. I would be basically stranded but yeah, you can't drive on. There's no cars, unless you're a business or like your comp or something like that. I was in, but he, he held his own, I felt that we miss the, the war taxes. Go the other town. Linen nights on me and him walk back like four miles. Oh, no. His little legs. My felt bad about that. So good week Suzanne. He was he was. He wasn't agitated all know he loved it. How long was visiting? Twenty thirty minutes, maybe. Left the bar and went home and he like came later. Basically that no, we were bouncing around from different bars, and he kind of just like a lost side him for a little bit. I was kind of seems kinda guy who like I wouldn't be worried about we hit the bar together. I could be the host, but I'd be like, oh, good. You can island, like, if I invited some in talk it, and then I found out of the bar, that'd be problem because bars are hard to get into. There's lines and just kind of wondering, well, maybe able to get anything because he's very recognizable. He was like the mayor of ocean beach. Edmund was coming up to him. Bind free drinks. He's killing he looked. I know part of your initial pitch was. We took. We'll know we all walked back at, like, four AM to my house, 'cause I was gonna different town. One where partying at so we walked back and then instead of going into my house, and go to sleep Donnie, he just decided fuck this. I'm going back on. He was pissing me that we walked back. That was he ended the day walking more mile. Yes. What we're gonna be three and a half. Greet me me, Donny chef Donnie. And czar went over from one town to like the big party town and met up with maybe like five or six and my buddies within one you're out there. You kinda like everybody from Long Island. So everybody knows everybody kinda bouncing around. So what were you doing when you lost drinking drinking picture of you? You look like you are basically dead Redan, so another like forty-five-year-old dancing. I was mixing around with some older women. Yeah. That picture wasn't my best. Look, there's things called rocket fields, staple drink of firearm. It's a pinochle lot. And then it has a to rump floaters on top. So it's basically three drinks in one a couple of those in a little bit. But good we can just anything post show here. You did stand up. I saw. I went pretty well. I was doing a more to we got our own. We have case radio live show up in July, and I hadn't been on stage and a couple of years, I see, like where I'm out with that. So I was hoping just I does. Does different scene of your kiss radio? When vary around talked for sure. So I was like seeing how comfortable I was on stage. And I wasn't as nervous as I expected I didn't like tear down by any means but I don't think I bombed either it was more just that I was able to like steak how long doing that for probably a couple of weeks. You wrote your material two weeks out. Yeah, it was memorize memorize. Yeah. I mean it was it was five minutes. It wasn't like a huge set, but that's an experience man. It's, it's a fucking rush. I've always wanted to try that. But that's one thing that I'm actually terrified of heights very nervous doing stand up comedy. I feel like yeah. I'm sorry. Yeah. Well, I've been on stage and I've done a few things that I thought were okay on stage. But I'm just terrified that I would get up there. You know what I'll do? I'll get up there in like my first two lines bomb. And then I would just act like I was up there to introduce the guy. I'm the intro guy. That's all that's all that I'm doing. Yeah. As long as I didn't have a full blown bomb moment. Like I was okay. I didn't tear it down by any means, but it wasn't like a crickets. Whereas like, oh my God. Yeah. As long as you don't go Michael Richards than that, definitely didn't. That's yeah. That is a w books. All right. So rundown.

Podcast (08/31/20)

"It's boomer and Geo on the fan and the CBS sports network. boomer is in Gregg Giannotti. It's boomer and Geo on the fan simulcasts across the country on CBS sports network and wherever you are via radio dot com good Monday morning. It's Jerry me as we have a bunch of people off. I had no idea was working. This is partially my fault is partially the communication that we have on the show and people go on vacation. Nobody says anything I had to text Bob Dwyer. The only reason why I knew bobby was working I got an email from him. They show rundown that Al does and I said, well, who else is working and he told ME. A fliegelman was working and then I said, okay, that's good and then I saw Ceelo pop up on the zoom and I said that's good and then I didn't see. Jerry. Until about fifteen seconds ago. So I honestly thought I was doing the show Solo I said Okay I've got to do a solo show because Jerry's not there and bobby didn't say anything about Jerry working and there's an empty chair there in the studio. Haven't done solo shown a but here we go solo show but Jerry is there good. Morning Jerry has grown man good morning I'm trying to make you feel more comfortable. I'm going to pull a boomer and just kinda hang out until like six, zero, two, six, zero three. Now you know what happened is when we do the warm up show, we've always got that update at five o'clock. So we start like over four and so I was out there watching just highlights of games from yesterday in Bob Dwyer comes run out like a year on so. Here, we are how you doing man back on vacation you feeling good. Yeah. I am I'm doing all right I do need a detox week though man I really do this was these beach weeks told you about the last time? It's it's eating and drinking for days straight. This is really what it is is you go out to the beach you said there you have a couple of drinks you go back to the house eat lunch you go back to the during I mean, yeah, I mean that's basically what it is. So I mean I just feel. Loaded and slow and lethargic. It was great and I'm not complaining don't get me wrong I mean it's relaxation. It's everything it's great but it is just it's bad I don't even want to get on the scale I don't WanNa. Know I just I just need I need a detox week like I can't even I can't even get through this segment that like feeling like I have to burp every five minutes from yesterday. I. Honestly. I would say a couple days. You'll be fine usually that goes away very quickly. I'm glad you had a good time. The boats intact nothing got destroyed the Simon. And ended up being okay. There was threats thunderstorms a couple of times. So I ended up bringing it back to the marina at where I keep it normally when that stuff was going on. So I said, all right. I'm not. I'm just not messing around with this at all big like wind and stuff and big severe thunderstorm warning. So I said absolutely no way am I in my testing this again no shot. So yet ended up being great, and then we it was funny because we spent Friday to Friday at this house and then friends of ours went into the same house that next. Friday and had a birthday celebration with just A. Couple of people there, and we had to go back, Sunday. So we're glad this same house I don't know how many days of the week. So it's sort of like bizarre to be back I tell you this is like the felt like I was gone for a month or whatever reason which is a great thing but it really, it really felt like I was gone for a month and then just watch what was going on in sports when I was off I was like, wow, this is insanity I. Wonder How those guys are dealing with it and and now we're back and now we've got some fun stuff to talk about at least because. You Know Friday Was Arguably, one of the best days the mets had had in years I mean in without recency bias, right like that was. To have a sweep of a double header and the news that Steve Cohen got the exclusive rights to by the mets which we've all jumped the gun with this before. But do you think it's safe to say that this is a done deal at this point like what else could stop at the owners the rejecting him because I'm I'm still in this Cautious optimistic mode with this because I remember the first time that I heard that he was going to by the mets in that weird deal with the wilpon still having control for five years I, was over the moon with that. Then I got crushed and then this whole bidding process game in and I got excited again. Now I'm super excited about it but I don't want to go too far because I feel like they still could be hangups. I don't think. So I mean the fact that you had the a rod and Jennifer Lopez Group back out I understand that they have to do their investigation and all their due diligence. But I do think at this point, it is going to be his team I mean he's got the most money. He put up the most money in the offer they will have the exclusive negotiating period could something happen I suppose we've seen all those newspapers that say you know the Wilpon hate the guy. Jeff, is it possible? Yes I. Think it's likely I. Don't I think the end of the he will become the next met on it because look at it this way baseball wants him to be the owner from the standpoint of. Player movement in contracts and driving up salaries and stuff like that, and you certainly think that's the type of wonder he'll be. So I do think it will it will get done and you're right. Friday was quite the day you know when you look at the to win this, you know you wake up Saturday I was going through the twitter stuff on Saturday morning I kind of figured it'd be like it was when I went to bed Friday night it was I mean over the moon for people I mean people are fired up and rightly so and then the next three games happen. But. I think for you going for this what you wanted the whole time and I think you're going to get exactly what you want. Yeah and Syria you said one thing though that is confusing to me about the driving up the salaries. So you would think like the Players Association would loan the driving the. Not that's a very good point I'm thinking baseball. It's good for the players. That's true. That's a very good point and who knows and this is one of these misconceptions it just drives me insane about an owner that likes to spend money. It's not about just the free agent class from year to year. It's about everything it's about retaining the players, your home grown players. You don't have to worry about those guys going away like for example I. Mean Zack Wheeler is someone that we understood that he was not as good a few years ago when the mets could have. Bought out his arbitration years and and had them under control for a longer time and maybe gotten a discount on it, and maybe that's why they didn't do it. But that type of situation with an owner like Steve Cohen's like you know I see enough potential in him. Let's go ahead and do this and not worry about the money and let's go ahead and sign the guy as opposed to waiting until free agency, and then you see signs one, hundred, million dollar deal with a team within the division. It's that type of stuff or when you go into an off season. And you address a couple of needs and instead of the owners saying all right that's it. We're putting a cap on this thing you someone else's available. You didn't expect to be available and you go out there and you spend the extra ten, fifteen, million dollars not to four hundred, million dollars. We've seen in these contracts, things like that. The revitalization of a minor league system camps in the Dominican Republic it's things like that. To me that an owner who wants to spend in different areas really improve a club. Yeah. You want to go out and get the best free agents if they fit. Your team player is perfect for you in the off season but there's so many other things in owner with deep pockets can help an organization with an about picking JT. Rail Muto. Instead of a Wilson Ramos going out making a right. Well, I'm just saying. That keeping a Michael before going forward I mean, there's there's a lot of examples of it that have happened in can happen. So you're right I did miss speak I was talking about the players wanting them. You're right the owners have devoted men but I do think this'll happen and I think this is going to be a really good future now for the mets based on everything that you just brought up, you've got a guy that loves the team I mean that has not been written about enough. The fact that he grew up a met fan he's been a are very small but a minority owner of this club already and it's exciting if you're a met. Fan I think these are very exciting times. Now, the play on the field is one thing. This is completely other going forward and you know it's going to happen quickly because the Wilpon I believe as we've discussed this need out by the end of the year. So he will be the owner for the twenty twenty one season and for the majority in bulk of the winter. So things are gonNA happen relatively quickly. Yeah and I've said it many times leading up to this moment that if you could craft and owner if you could wiggle and owner out of would it would be Steve? Cohen it's the perfect guy is someone who's passionate about the team someone with deep pockets I. Really Hope that there isn't some sort of the other owners say, Oh, now we got to New York teams operating like the Yankees we can't have that stop. You cannot stop somebody from owning a team if he has the highest bid that to me is ridiculous. I mean to think these just gonNA come in and sign a bunch of losers for record deals that's not going to happen either. People think that Oh, now he's going to go out there and sign the worst free agents for twenty five, million dollars a year. Not I mean he might outbid the dodgers on somebody at some point he might be in the mix on a player that the mets haven't been in the mix on and years and years but I don't think he's GonNa go out there and sign a bunch of schmucks to record deals, and then screw up the market for everybody else and I hope not. So g there are so many examples of bad signings and bad contracts. I mean just look at the angels who have spent a fortune and they don't get it right and they never win and then you've got a team like the rays that really spend on nothing except maybe their minor league system I guess because it seems like they got players come to the pipeline doesn't matter who they put out there. They always seem to win a lot of games. It really is the way you spend the money. And when you need to spend it, spending it the right way and being able to go out and use you point out, keep his act wheel or go out and get a real muto. If that's indeed the guy that you decide, you want it's going to be able to keeping a Michael Conforto and not letting him walk away because he's GonNa cost. Too much money but just I've always said this just spending the money does not make you a winner. It just doesn't. It's got to be spent the right way on the right players for the right team. So here's the thing I'm most interested in if the Steve Cohen thing continues to go in the way that we hope and he's the new owner. We always talk about how some organizations just our can never get out of their own way and it stinks from the top. You know whether it's the jets of the mets locally the Knicks just they can never get added. It's gotTA. Be the ownership it's the ownership redskins the ownership Washington football team is the ownership. So we'll that stuff change with Steve Cohen like will these The SESPE is story Jeff. wilpon getting crushed by Brodie van wagon on open mic situation something last week I'm. Like is that going to change? You know I mean those are the things that I want to know if you get into owner in is a franchise just cursed like Ceelo zoom camera looking like. Paranormal activity. Or? Are. We going to see some of the same stuff that that's the stuff that I'm always curious about you know. It's it's a hard one to answer because it's not like this team hasn't had good times. They have made in two, thousand fifteen they went to the world series. They won the National League pennant they weren't a disaster. All you now part of that was sesame know that but they've been good. They've been to the playoffs but yes, some of the stuff that happens off the field you know and it's not just the owner. Is Falling in a hole and and chasing a wild boar or whatever the hell that story was I mean sometimes, these things just happen Hot Mike's Happen. Of course, happens to the mets why not you know the jets are team to its Butch Jones Line you can change the church and changing uniforms you could change the stadium. Yeah. Change the coach they add time Soo- when parcells was here. Then you can say they were snake bitten with the injury to test the verdict. I'm going to say, no, I'm going to say things absolutely can change and change quickly this team has had good times. They have a lot of bad ones. and. You would think top down if the right owner is in, he makes the right changes on a and boomer seem to think that it's going to be a complete clean sweep of the front office I would think. Assuming, that again to me and I said this to boomer I've said this to you. I don't know the relationships he has i. don't know if it's a partial cleaning mean clearly, they'll be changes I don't think that's not breaking any news there but you would think just with a completely new face at the top and we'll bugner long time that things would change just because But then again, who knows if you believe in curses in the just haven't won fifty something years so I don't know we'll see. Yeah. I I like brody. I've always sort of I. didn't like the higher at the time because I remember saying that I wanted the baseball guy in high bloom that's the person that was rooting for. But then I got to know him a little bit and he was fun and I. I liked that he was bowled with things and tried to be creative but there's been so many things that haven't worked out and is just your Steve Cohen you come into this situation I don't know how you can continue to have him be. The general manager and example a is Edwin Wendy has and I don't care how many know tantalizing performances. He will give you every now and then he is someone that you cannot count on any longer in a high leverage situation. That's just the way it has to be. I'm sorry a you can Louise Roe Haas and Mickey callaway before him and whoever the hell who has had his back through all of this. Well, look how good he was here at his stuff is so electric and there was a he struck out the. Side in his last outing I mean look how great it doesn't matter because there's always going to be a disaster on the other side. Now, not like a regular closer where it happens once in a blue moon who's supposed to be a great closer like he wasn't Seattle that one year. I. Mean. It's right around the corner like if you get him in a game, he looks good the next outing he's going there's going to be a meltdown and I was trying to think because the mets at a long history these guys. Whether it be Mel Role Haas or Billy Wagner Armando Benitez just. Love John Franco but John used to live on the edge. All the time people used to couldn't stand when John Franco would come into games and walked the bases loaded in somehow find his way out of it. But He has got to be Edwin Diaz has to be the most frustrating and annoying of all those guys I know that this is happening right in front of our face. Melrose is actually could have been worse melrose remember him being just absolutely putrid. But y with what the whole deal entailed with Edwin D as in needing him to be great he has to be the most frustrating out of all of those guys like I I remember Benitez being great and having that great regular season I understand there were meltdowns but I remember him being I remember billy. Wagner at times being great. But this is just I mean, McKay, rod was a disaster to there for a while he was another one but there's just Edwin de estimate is is got to be it has he has to be the worst of all these guys. He has no argument at all now Friday night was one of those games where you saw what he was in Seattle I mean swings and misses the ball's moving all over the place I thought he had good command of the strike zone he was into it you could see the energy. Yesterday is an interesting one and terrible terrible terrible terrible. Terrible. We'd always play that clip and predictable too I totally agree with you. And it's funny because I was watching the game I was watching s and Y and Gary in Keith, they were talking about how they're really trying to hold him for the night game and you know my thought is I know it was seven two and I know that. Jimenez makes the era to, start, I, know they could had the the guy out at thirty drops the ball, not an easy play but still it's an out at the major league level gotta hold onto the ball and he's he's number one villain number. One for that inning happening is is is Jimenez no question about it. I would have started him in the last thing it was a five run lead and here's why he was tremendous on Friday night. You've got a five run lead. You look at who is coming up I would have thrown them out there a fresh cleaning. Even if he falters with one bad pitch, you're not going to get killed and all of a sudden you might have a couple of good outings back toback toback perhaps but to put him in that spot when he wasn't ready, he wasn't up he wasn't loose and then to come in and say, sure okay. Now go get Aaron Hicks. Was As predictable as anything I've ever been. You're right and you're white. Watching that game on fold and first of all, you could tell Hughes hideous from the first at bat even though he got the ground ball I, know that he was all over the place though I I wish I don't know it was one of those games that you sat there and said five runs, but it just didn't seem safe as crazy as that sounds for the Yankees give them all the credit in the world. They never quit at game down seven two and by the way up seven runs swing three. Oh the professionals if you haven't noticed this stuff can happen. But yeah I it just I would not have put him there. I would have started him in the inning because at that point, you win the series, you've taken three or four. Now go get the fifth game you know and you've got to figure it out with someone else at the end. But yeah, it's definitely mismanagement by row Haas and the thing that's the most infuriating about it is you should know at this point that bringing in Edwin D as and that type of situation is not going to work you should the body of work this is not a guy you can just call the bullpen phone like all right let's go get them. Let's shut this thing down. This isn't Trevor Hoffman out there. This is Mariano. Rivera. Can't just be like all right. We gotta get this done. We're going Edwin Diaz. Here he comes out of the bullpen you can't put into a situation like that. You have to know that these guys they just insist on being tantalized by what he can do, and it's fresh in their memory as you mentioned from Friday and then all of a sudden this is what you got. So yeah. I agree mean Louis Ross has a lot to deal with a lot of responsibility and how that game even with some of the stuff that we talked about in the bad luck and not making plays and all this stuff. But he is he's gotTa take a brunt of the responsibility for what happened in that meltdown for sure. Yeah, I agree. So it was a lost. Opportunity because you feel a lot different had they won that game seven two or seven three and then okay they lose last night. So Gary Sanchez with the with the big home run at least you'd walk away and say you know what they went three into. They've got Steve Cohen on the horizon. Now go get the marlins today with degrom and it's amazing the difference. Of that meltdown how the feeling can, and then you know what they're. Now one nothing Garcia was really good. You get the base it from Dominic Smith and it's weird about Sanchez I, I know he's baton a buck tanner but whatever one, thirty, five, one, forty as has been terrible when he's a strikeout waiting to happen, he had his issues behind the plate again yesterday. Some not as fault some his fault. But anytime, he's got a baton this and I don't know why I feel like he's you know he's always going to hit a home run and they're few and far between. But yesterday was a big one for that team because remember going into Saturday I think it was a seven game losing streak they were on the verge of. Out of nine, and then instead they wound up taking the last three. So really a lot of credit to the Yankees who might have righted the ship with their last three games in the series. Complete turnaround in a couple of days and you get Davey Garcia looking great yesterday and his his demeanor for a twenty one year. Old Andrew Stand. There's no fans in the stands and whatever. But I mean my God, he was as common as you could be for someone in that type of situation. Here's the way. Look the way he pitched. He was in command. It's everything you wanted to see from a young pitcher. So they got to feel great about themselves now as they continue to try to. Get healthy. But yet they were on the brink and then that was one of those moments where they come back in. Well, of course, they win on Saturday as well. But here they come back in that game the first game of the doubleheader yesterday, and then they win the second one they feel phenomenal about themselves three game winning streak when they you're right they were on the brink of sliding completely off the mountain and So yeah, I mean this is screen just listen let them off the hook. And they. Did my Guy Dennis Green by the way Ron. Robinson No. I mean I understand I mean Speaking of that. Clint Frazier often the. Play. Tremendous. I mean Robinson's GonNa still would've been at first but not true. Not True? No, I'm just kidding I. Would've gone to the wall. Funny. That's the first thing I thought that was a ball would have gone right to the wall, and then it was like, wait a second. He would've still been at first base I was back and forth I forget which wo who said it but one of them was like, when was the last time you saw an outfielder die for a ball to stop an extra base hit not just a single or a diving catch for an out lake that stops a double I really was a trimmer. He is. He's a good player God. He's a good player. Yeah. The more we're seeing. It. And defensively, he's been called into question many times and he really hasn't shown any real deficiencies. this season so far. So that's great that he's been able to improve on that as well. Each morning show with boomer Esiason and Greg. boomer and Geo. Bora Jeon Fan and CBS sports network. I do a great. Of staying away from social media on vacation. So of course I check after the first segment and already somebody is complaining that we haven't talked about the islanders yet and screaming at us because of it, we're twenty minutes in or we were with a break into a four hour radio program I promise you we'll do the islanders. And there was lots of stuff that happened with the mets and Yankees they played each other. So then that's what we talked about and there was going to be an ownership change. Don't worry about it. All right. Islander fans don't because it doesn't get mentioned the first twenty minutes of the show what would happen later in the show if we mentioned in the first twenty minutes of the show, then later in the show. Got In the car like seven twenty and we let's say we just talked about it for twenty minutes then they would scream. Mentioned, the islanders because this show doesn't only exist when you are listening to it exists for four hours. So I just like to remind people of that. Now Chris Loprestie will tell you about the islanders amongst a lot of other things as he's got his update right now good morning Chris Good Morning Fellas we will get to the islanders in a couple of minutes we. Of course, we'll start with the subway series though in a seven game skit ends up with three game winning streak for the Yankees. Just barely they take three out of five for the mets over the weekend Gary Sanchez with the exclamation point last night drew Smith deals swung on and hit high on the year the deep left center that ball is high done as far. As gone as a Grand Slam, all the San Chino he it's a grand slam did left center. That Gary is scary his biggest hit of the year by far John Sterling here on the fan the pinch hit slam deep into the left field bleachers over the Bullpen Sanchez with eleven hits this season six of them are home runs makes him counting? Yes. He does and this one obviously came at a key time. When they hit boy definitely knew that it was going to be deep enough that a niece we were going to get a run in you know and that's why you I I stood there and look the the fly ball shirt. that the whole nine yards yanks finish off the mets and the bottom of the eighth for a five two, win sweeping Sunday's doubleheader Erik Kratz Scott the starting game two before Sanchez came off the bench with the big blow. Aaron. Boone. Happy to see it from his struggling catcher. Sometimes, you've got to back off a little bit and just really focus on having good at bats and winning pitches and. He went up there tonight and had a great at Bat and was able to finish it off before all that David Garcia was excellent in his major league debut. He retired the first nine in order striking out the side in the third he ends up with six innings of four hit one run ball that run was unearned. No walks six KS blue. It's like, Pedro. Martinez doesn't he see? Slightly Mall in his stature yes. The hair coming out of the hat. Yeah. A little bit. Different but now that's one of those things though where you're saying physically, he looks like it's just that's a tough comparison for a guy was twenty one years old guy it looks like, Pedro, Martinez. Peter. Just saying, he physically looks like him. That's all caught pay. Doesn't is hard last night was tweeting about him after the game. I did not get like a little recap of his star like what he saw good command. All that good stuff is body was in control full extension gave the analytical breakdown real quick. I know you're Yankee Fan. So I WANNA get your take on this I think gee, will agree with me to I. watched the I. Really Am I'm impartial I. I watch more met Games under Yankee Games, but I'm really impartial. I. GotTa Tell You watching Wilson. Romo's catch the ball and just so nonchalantly catch it and throw it back before the Empire has made a decision. I'm ready to throw something at the. TV. How many times yesterday did you see an empire? Call a ball when the ball is back in the air going back to the pitcher and the pitcher state like that was a poor seller yesterday and he looked at the empire like where was that? I really is it's nauseating to watch him and I know it's Ju- but yesterday it was wants to keep it going man wants to keep it going. He's pace of play frame of all once. Speaking of nonchalant his his tag on the game winner I thought left a little bit. You're not wrong about that too because he missed the by that much. But yes I agree with you there wasn't a lot of movement from him I know he's a large man but. Anyway back to Garcia his manager Aaron Boone loved his demeanor nothing really seems to phase him. He kinda you. Having fun tonight the whole time he walk in. After an opening, like it was no big deal echoed that prepared and not overwhelmed. I wasn't nervous. By I definitely understood the task in front of you know. I wanted to do the best I could to help win team to ask courtesy of via Marlin brain. Now, in the opener, Yanks trailed seven two in the seventh they rallied for five to tie including game-tying homer from Aaron Hicks, of Edwin, D as they wanted in the eighth on a geo or shallow rbi single as he returned from the bone spur in his elbow. So eight seven, the final there's Chad Green Bounce back from Friday's. Messy. Struck out the side top of the eighth for the win. Of course, the couldn't get through yesterday without another injury concern Hicks left game to with cramping and both of his calves boone downplayed it afterwards as did Hicks. Is this something you been dealing with at all lately you've been ramping up in your calves recently no not at all and can you play tomorrow? Yeah. Can play tomorrow well, that covers that he's done for the right? Yeah. Where the Yankees are the Asian. As for the mets, the promising start on Friday obviously went downhill from there and a rough finished for manager Luiz Ross today was a was a tough day. Those two games were tough and You know the first one without lead in the last inning and then the second one was we came back again we fought like we always do sorta they scored one. They. Were threatening for more but Louise Sessa was able to close the door. They're back to game one another rough inning Fred Wendy as says, he didn't regret the pitch that Hicks lined into the right-field seats though I. Wanted that I wanted to throw a high fastball that I got him out with the other day. I. Didn't feel comfortable throwing that three two slider because he didn't have the slaughter working in this one. So he was reduced to the fastball ball and in backfired on him injury. Wise for the mets Dylan Batanes is placed on the with right latte tightness after his struggles the other. Day in Stephen Matt's also on the I l.. Now after his limited work out of the bullpen left shoulder discomfort, he was to see a doctor today to determine the next step. Mets have a makeup game with the marlins today one, ten jake degrom posed by Trevor Rogers and they're off to Baltimore to with the Orioles Jacob degrom just exclusively pitches the MARLINS. That's all this is. Right. Yeah. Yeah Jeez. I, someone on the broadcast to some of the first time in a hundred years or something like that or maybe maybe not that much but it's Times? Four times in a row white possible. He never it'll never happen. Yeah in a normal regular season. So rare in the re we understand the reasons why it's happening here. It's just it's just funny every single time it's Jacob degrom in the Marlins but hell, you feel good about the mets James's in every one of those games. So an odd week one with the Marlins to with the Orioles and. Then they've got Thursdays makeup the Yanks at city field. Meet on the bombers get set for another three game series with the raise Garrett Cole Tyler Glass. Now, the starters again tonight at the stadium pregame on the fan at six twenty, five Tampa Bay. In office sweep of the marlins including this blow from Sunday's finale swung lifted this one the deeply field dickerson going back at the wall it's A. CAR OR DID TECHNOLOGY GRAND SLAM HE I wasn't tough. Spike is the left fielder. I did get his glove on. It looked like he might have robbed it but it did make its way over the wall for willing dumbest Grand Slam as part of a and that was all in Miami right or yes it was their fifth in a row. They lead the yanks by three and a half to on the law side atop the least. Are we going to go back to the well tonight coal glass now round two what we call man. Whole just. Had the streak snap last time out giving up. LANTA. Diaz I. Mean we could check back I gotta take a look at the odds. I do feel really good about the Yankees going on a little bit of a run here, but the problem is. You, just your little trigger shy with Yankees raise sure every time they own especially after last time it happened. All right I'll I'll take a look and all save anybody's interested wild game at Citizens Bank last night the braves scored ten in the second they had to hold on to beat the phillies twelve ten avoiding a three game sweep so on the phillies had a shot At having a really good weekend down there in Philadelphia Luiz Robert Walk off three run homer to send the white sox past royals and ten five to to look out for Chicago they're up to twenty, one and thirteen. The as had a positive Kobe test that was announced yesterday their series finale with the Astros was called off and the padres crush the rockies course field thirteen to. San Diego now twenty one and fifteen they got the second most wins in the NFL they're five the dodgers in the West and they were already quite busy. Murray. Deadline goes all over the place they acquire Austin Nolan some bullpen help in a seven player deal with the mariners. Also Got Mitch Moreland from the Red Sox Jayson Castro from the angels and on Saturday they picked up. Trevor Rosenthal from the royals, all of that leading into today's at trade deadline, which arrives at four o'clock. So we'll see if the Yankees and the mets making deals padres have been busy those far now to the islanders up in Toronto they are in total control against the flyers kicked out five Oh Pele for PROC Nelson he and Bailey on one. Here's Bailey for Nelson thanks. With his second islanders to. John, forslund on NBC and that held up as the game winner Philly did get one there later on the third aisles. Hold on to win three, two, two, they take a three one series lead over Philadelphia. Nelson with the two goals J. G. Patio had the other and Thomas Greis, stepped in thirty six saves after semi Varlamov help the aisles win game three setters art three crisis since March seventh. Yeah. Now, we haven't all been together at work since what March seventeenth something like that. Yeah. Seems how long has that been and this guy had had a start since March seventh my I commute back since March seventeenth I can only hope to be as good as Thomas Grace was in this game since March seventh. But yeah, I, mean that to me other than Brock Nelson's two goals was the biggest story guy like that WHO's been essentially deemed you know the backup in emergency situations because of our lawn. Has Been so good stepped in and he was great I mean he was he was beyond good in a situation that clearly was high leverage. So yeah, good for them. Mean there are machine right now there's no other way to say they are a frigging machine and then in game three Matt Martin with the goal with the the assist from Brazil and the Sydney I don't know if you guys saw the Sydney tweets. tweet where said that one was for boom? PA. Selfie with him in the background trying not to smile. Definitely. Smiling. So, he's all on board. That's great. Thank. You know. Win The game night they're up three one greis steps in and plays. Well, you would think Berry trots would be pleased but as it turns out not so much in my opinion that was the worst game that we played to this point in the In the playoffs. Great well, that's he knows what's going on he knows that. This team is in full control their a win away from the Eastern Conference final he's been in these situations before obviously being a championship winning coach. So he knows that this is a spot where his team could get maybe a little bit over confident not playing a great game and still winning and you don't WanNa blow a three one series lead at this point So yeah, I, did that to me is genius coaching is what that is I mean that's that's the bill Belichick School of hard s coaching. Yeah. You're. Right that's right. Old School game five coming up tomorrow night. Also, you get Vegas three one Vancouver Dallas up three one on Colorado and they will go for the clothes out tonight same for Tampa Bay against Boston. Now, we get to the NBA and I caught the late stages of this nuggets jazz game last night, and it literally felt like you're watching a one on one between Jamal Murray and Donovan Mitchell and now once again, the nuggets staving off Elimination Tori, oh? Bad past handled by Yokich gets at the Murray for three. Fifty. Fifty. Six Nuggets, sleet it by ten, one, seventeen to one, zero seven. Cow. Jason. y'All fired up on radio they win the game, one, nine, thousand, nine, hundred, seven, force, a game seven and Murray has just been insane. He was seventeen, twenty four in this one, nine, twelve from three and some of these I. mean these aren't like wide open threes. He's knocking down I mean these are sidesteps talent level is ridiculous. It's the shooting has been on full display Donovan, Mitchell again in the loss, for Utah had forty four they will play game seven tomorrow night some of the nuggets here on Murray's third player to score fifty points and a potential elimination game joining Sleepy Floyd and Wilt Chamberlain and he also joins Michael Jordan obviously that's good company to be an only players. Posting postseason history with three straight forty point five rebounds five assists games over his last three. He is shooting sixty four percent from the field sixty three percent from beyond the ARC. So he pretty good completely in control clippers took care the Mavericks, one eleven ninety seven finishing of that series in game six, Colli Leonard thirty-three points fourteen rebounds, seven assists Luca in the loss, he was close to a triple double yet thirty, eight, nine and nine now late first quarter in this one he and Marcus. Morris senior getting into it again, Morris objected for a flagrant two on don which basically slapped him in the head on a drive to the basket and Luca was asked about that after the game. Hope. So the first game he wasn't porpoise but looking back at. The default, this game you know what I? Want to deal with the players. Moolah so it seems like he had a list of understanding early in the series not so much now, I can't remember a series being this nasty in a long time because the NBA has known to be very close these days all these guys are friends you see it all the time on different teams they want to join together to form super teams I an MBA playoffs i. mean you might have a couple of teams here their dislike one, another I mean the warriors in cavs because they played each other in the finals a couple times a be the back and forth draymond green whatever. But. My goodness. This this series reminded me of like Eighties Nineties playoff basketball and it did definitely cross a line in a lot of areas, Marcus. Morris, doing what he did the whole comments Harold to Luca Danni kitchen. We don't need to get into again. I'm you guys talked about but I mean it's like you never see this in the NBA. So party liked it i. mean it definitely got a little too nasty but part of me like the fact. That there's actually teams at eighty other in the NBA again, which I never thought. I was ever GonNa see your for sure Celtics Game One of their second round series with the Raptors one, twelve, ninety, four, you get the heat series opener tonight at six thirty followed by game six between the rockets and the thunder Houston up three two in that series. A couple of quick ones for unique in Gaga finally gets himself out of Jacksonville, goes to the Viking. They're J batty wanted to return. He agrees to a revised one year twelve, million dollar deal without a no tag Klaus Meeting Minnesota enfranchise him next year. So basically, man factor in the no state income tax in Florida he gave about six million dollars to get himself out of Jacksonville. Golden. MINNESOTA. Vikings this was just genius. So the deal that they made for Stefan, where traded him to the bills and what they got back was a huge return. Then the deal that they made here in what they gave up where it's third and a fifth, that could be a second fifth, and then they still retain his franchise rights by the way so. They don't have to give him a contract at the end of this year takes a pay cut and they could franchise him next year and they just they smelled a huge opportunity, sniff this one out and they got him on the team and with him and Denise Hunter on opposite sides that's going to be formidable and the quarterback still stinks the offense. But. I love this defense. You are relentless with him. I always that. Everybody's excited. Excited I'm like, yeah of course it's great what a great player was. He didn't have to give up a lot everything's perfect but then you just remember that fourth quarter down by four a minute and a half to go you put the ball in his hands and then all of a sudden you start seeing the the Brown on the back of his pants over. Okay. This defense is that good just don't screw it up. You'll be fine. You need a great quarterback regardless and these days. Especially, if you run into some these teams, these high powered offenses and the defense is just got no shot you just you need a guy with some got. His pants, right? I. Mean Not a little bit net saints game but. I think he's got like one of those in a season. So whatever either of you see the two pots good on eighteen and. I mean Jon Rahm in Dustin Johnson putting on sixty six feet. Yeah. To the point where he was walking after it and had no idea it was going into. It was about five feet away from the whole. Redan even the the Dustin Johnson a double breaker. Baltimore Ridiculous Dj one really had more pressure obviously because he needed it just force the price. So it wasn't as long but the pressure of it both tremendous pods and not quite finished and genre wins the BMW championship. Last thing before I go I, don't know of Georgetown or his family is confirmed this but I guess through the night John Thompson pass away they saw this. So we send condolences to his family and the Georgetown community each the morning show with boomer Esiason Gregg Giannotti boomer and Geo it's boomer and Geo Fan and CBS sports network. Jerry in for boomer this morning, we've got a lot of people off this week of course, as it is the heading into Labor Day the latest day. Yeah Go. I know it is but it's the latest Labor Day can possibly be is is this this day and this year so? I decided to take the last week off in August as opposed to this Labor Day, because I feel like August is always just a little bit warmer when it turns to September something happened based touch gets a little bit chillier a little bit cooler. So normally I'd take this week off but not this year. Someone's going to have to do this. I don't know if it's going to be fleet or bobby or. Wherever. there. But so on this call screener thing that I have there is a messaging back and forth now I'm thinking that it has to be four nineteen a. m. this morning now maybe maybe it's not could be another day. It says four nineteen am? Ha Ha guy sounds bomb legit bombed ha ha. This is a this is a communication between the producer and the host at four nineteen am. I don't know if it was today this morning or another day. I. Want it was the host. I don't know if the today. Your I'm not sure. Whoever it is, this has got to be funny because these guys were laughing about it. So if you can go back and just check for nineteen this morning, it's not there don't go to the rest of the days, but because that will just be too much of a chore but if it's just easy enough to go to four, nineteen, this morning let's hear a drunk caller because those are always fun I drunk overnight caller. I have found out that that. Is. Not. The case it was not a bad call that all he was just goofy when he called in. So it's not worth playing. Oh, random call nothing more. That's too bad but I, it's funny. You bring that up because I saw that as well that my first thought was if that was this morning, let's go grab it because sal would have been you know tremendous weather but it was not salad it was not this morning and it was a few days ago. I tell you man he doesn't like to be cold angry but he seems as angry as ever with the mets. I tell you well you. Know of course, I understand. But like he always preaches about how these new SALLE and he's not as angry at the mets, he takes these things in stride I mean he said something a. tweet where he was like you losers never listened to me. Laughing at it I looked like man he is still and then this morning when I. Logged in once they connected to the studio I, heard him all fired up to him like man I. Hope He's okay. So you souls. You Fools you. I did games with Columbia with him for five. Maybe even six years spent a lot of time with him. He is one of the most fun laughable goofy type of people I've ever met but sure. When it flips the the other way and he gets angry you see the fire and his eyes and usually it's the Atlanta Falcons or the New York mets, the does. Really is incredible and he does get fired up is probably an understatement. I mean, of course I mean I've had some of the you know the funniest times at the station would sow. We lived in an apartment together for a year. Great just the best one of the guys you can always count on but boy, it's so this is the The tweeting about Edwin. I told you since last year was done you fools. Going to argue with that one by the way now, right? Absolutely not our Rico in Los Angeles joins us what's going on Rico good. Morning. How you doing I tell you. WH when I'm not making movies I'm watching the match the mets. Gary to give me ulcers like the worst meltdown system has theo trap ten years. But. The thing about the game I mean first of all Broncos is he like Info? Writing he can't move I mean the guy played catcher from from those two places to play together. But one day I was lucky got the call that that play against Philli wait where you had the ball with the running. Away and your could dive get uniform dirty. You know I know you got your cell phone, your back pocket. How about the Atlanta Land? Underground. Peg around from you know and then you have his, they put him up at bat. The tool pitches right there. You hit the right field staring at it. I. Mean The guys checked out you got Pete Alonzo's like deer in the headlights. Scoring the wild pitch you got bad. You know what? That's been Rico. Bad One because he never scored in that inning. Correct correct and and you know a guy that I didn't really killed me. It made me say they're gonNA lose that grumble that check swing ground ball to the right side with the dumb shift. Who who's the captain of the Infield who's telling with a play? These guys talking to each other I mean Ahmad Rosario has like the base, but like two of a rosin bag. And and and and the fan and the play is. Listening to this. Is. And we got Brodie van ruin trying to run the team when. The. H. Playing Rotisserie League Baseball makes you qualified to run the baseball pain but does It is big trouble and there's no. There's no leadership that we're GONNA look back and say not signing Joe Girardi was a big mistake because you know that mentality to get these guys in line making him play baseball making play airless heads of baseball, which is not done in a long time. Hong Rico. Yeah I recall I have to ask you though and when we'll talk more about the mets, of course, and all your points got a lot of good ones. You gave us a little humble brag in the beginning of your call when I'm not making movies, I'm watching the mets. So you're out there in la you're in the film business. Yeah you go online look at Franken Navy Franken neighbor the movie that didn't move a Naci to watch Amazon prime see made a bunch of lifetime movies actually did a short film about the met someone. Release it about the about how the metro like heartbreak team like one of the most tragic the cities I made a kid with having a met fan of the Yankee. A the same thing here I know it's these choices that you make the early on in life. You look back and say my life would have been totally different filled with much more happiness. So how's how's it going as far as like film and stuff with Cova now is are things starting to pick up again? Big. Boat. Movie in New York in June, we shot him will be in the village shot Gatland have college supervisors, people testing you every like three times a league shoving things up you know. it's it's slowly starting to pick up but let me tell you being out here. I I get to meet players when they come out to play the dodgers, they get the hang out and let me tell you a baseball is not the first thing on their mind with under Doug. I could take it that much I could tell you stories and it comes down to WHO's the manager of the team who's making sure they're focused on. Making sure that heads him to game I remember years ago you have jar we don't move over hundred dollar fine. If you don't have a quality a bad hundred dollar fine. If you caught napping and that kind of baseball has gone and there's only a few old school manages the you know like like Giradi guys come up old school system, it keep people engaged in the team. That's why it's really something that happens from the top down and and the fact that a guy like Alonzo looks cool out there you don't have a captain into the Infield. The capital infielder teller way to play where they have played being the right position that. Isn't that what? Robinson. Kenosha should be doing but of course, he's. A Lot. But isn't that the guy who should be doing that the old veteran out there but he doesn't shift from the analytics guys right exactly that it's going to be him to do. It's really hard. It's hard to watch and Ron. He's just checked out. I mean not not just because he was texting my instagram girlfriend from the dugout last time they played the they played the dodgers that's another story but the bunny what we'd say that again. Okay. So so lay mets are playing the dodgers have my instagram girlfriend at the game she knows no instagram girl for now, what is what's an instagram girlfriend as opposed to a regular girlfriend? She's like she's insecure instagram model I said okay. Yeah we connect it took. Met Game at dodger game and she fame who's Wilson Ramos Alive? He's like texting me I'm like. 'cause he started following the mets be sending stuff in the dugout and then he's on deck he's texting Neon Beck circles? No no no. Are you Seri-? You actually saw him text from the on deck. Circle. The tax he's texting. Seeing looking down. Expecting Beck Circle. I'm looking and these guys don't have baseball on their mind aren't time I mean this is like insane. Wasn't someone with Wilson Ramos's. Before he doesn't have his cell phone on him on the on Deck Circle Dude Trust Me Trust. You know what happened in the dugouts knew what happened when they're playing if you know what happened there on the road, it's I mean it's I've seen players get bombed night before they got to start the game. That's been going on for a hundred dollars five years. We we know all that I mean we're not that naive. I've never heard of texting people on the on Deck Circle. That is something that's new. So I. Think I found John IMDB here rico a long career i. mean this is pretty impressive here. Watch my movie. An. Actual pretty proud of it. Pretty good accomplishment and you're an actor to evacuate a bunch of stuff i. mean you're on days of our lives few years back and you've been in a bunch of movies and you produce stuff man I tell you not you weren't kidding. Hey by Muslim. Pain here. Fifteen. In the morning in California. Yeah Right. What are you doing? What are you nuts? Is called met hangover I mean. It's like you're watching you pass out in the self and say I can't believe this happening and who'd you talk to this the fans out here they'll look at you like we told you get tired another. Don't don't. You can't switch as frustrating as it is you can never switch. Rico. We need Steve Kerr divided team. We need him that you all share up getting real manager and the haven't played baseball I. Mean I mean I think. They're gonNA pay the marlins today. With the talent, they have played Hungary. I've never seen a bunch of kids. Hustle has hustle after balls. I mean if if it's that kind of hunger, you don't see in a team like the mets was really that's really every company I mean go back back to Friday to. I mean. Thanks for the call was fun talking to you. But I mean, if you go back to Friday ever totally different take no Saturday and Sunday was a mess but you thought about them fighting back I mean that was those two wins that they had on. Friday were as fun as exciting as wins. You can remember the last couple of years then I got on Sunday. Things look like they had energy and things were going in the right direction hundred percent. So yeah, I mean it was it was devastating but I don't want to get to the point where these guys are checked out hungry or this or that I will agree with the Wilson Romo's point because we've been talking about Jerry brought up the fact that I mean he basically. Like, he wants these games over before. Two hours as he's getting the ball back to the pitcher before the umpire even gets a chance to make a ball or strike call. And some of the plays of the plate especially yesterday as you mentioned, throws up the line he still it was it was good enough though yeah it got there where it needed to be. Maybe a little more effort would have been an out as opposed to what it was but yeah I the Romo's thing is hard to argue. I. Mean. He looks like a guy who is he's just not his his head isn't where it needs to be. I was actually going to put out a tweet watching the game yesterday with the just the refusal to frame a pitch and then like. I know what's going to happen if I do Since he's been here I know that but I don't know why yesterday just drove me nuts and a drove rick forsillo crazy as well, which you could tell then the euro pitcher and you're throwing to him like. Doesn't somewhat have to go to him and say, Dude, can you just hold the pitch there for like half a second like once? I just I just drives. You crazy really does. Yeah Rico I gotTa Give Rico Credit. He did not. He's even he gave that was a very interesting way that he went into that because he gave his humble brag in the beginning which meant that he wanted to talk about himself and then when I pressed them on talking on himself, he wanted to talk about the mets instead So you would think that someone who does you know when I'm not making movies and watching the mets talk about all his movies he did he got the one log in with the EVO whatever that was thanking that's the Sinatra one. Yeah that's. Already or it's coming out now it's out it's out it's been out it's been out since twenty eighteen. All right. Then so I guess he he might have acted in that and wrote the screenplay I started watching a really good documentary fear city on Net flicks have seen that no what's that the mob in the seventies the mafia I did I saw the preview really. Interesting and we've heard the story. So I don't know that anything's GonNa blow you away it. But what is interesting is all the footage they have and all the still photos that they release it very cool to watch I watched through one episode. I'm not sure how many there are, but I watched the first episode the other day really good. May I highly recommend it? Yeah. I definitely want to watch that I love all the mob stuff. I love this guy was in all he was in the movie. Bruce Almighty was he really Played a doctor in Bruce Almighty. He was in. Let's see I've mentioned days of our lives and then a bunch of stuff Max Payne. A bunch of movies. I never heard of Bruce Almighty the one with the guy from the office or is that the other one? Word you know they're. All mighty was with I think was Jim. Carrey. was then what was the other one with what? What the Governor Oh? Evan Almighty. Okay. If Yeah. Yada that's Sort of weird. There were two movies the same name with two different actors but yet. which was which that's why would came first. So. This is very interest guy moves out la went to nyu. He's been out there met fans suffering for all those years and he's put together a nice career and a bunch of stuff that really never have heard of but. He gets his Rico Sim. Anini is his name simony but I found him areas rico wasn't lying to us. I thought it. I thought I'd catch me I'm not making movies but. You really making movies each the morning show with boomer Esiason and Greg. boomer and Geo did you look up our Rico in the break bear jagged? Good. Looking Guy with strong JAL line looks like an actor handsome man. It's handsome man. To. Yeah. I. Don't know if I've seen them before. I. Mean he does he just kind of looks like an actor. Yeah. That's where he looks like he's like could play an actor in a movie everything with that life would be like. Yes. I do being out about that. That'd be fun. Yeah no I I do think about that. I remember Joe Beningo always said that he wanted to be an actor after he was like wanted to be in the sopranos you wanted to be in movies like that. You'd better hurry opportunity I know he's He's gone to that point as said, says, fading into darkness. Goes away into darkness. Yes, it really is ridichio. He's been talking about dying for the last twenty years as long as I've known him. Here not when I was with them in in New Jersey but once I started working with them here in ninety eight I. Guess it was he was talking like he was an old man and think about it. That's twenty two years ago. He's wow. So he was younger than I am now back then and he was talking about it. You know is great of a life as it would be to be out there in L.. A. And being on the actor and making a ton of money and making movies I'm sure it's stressful has held to I'm sure it's people the judging in the fashion and the reviews in this that what type of movies you make and I'm sure it's just absolutely mind because there's thousands and thousands and thousands of struggling actors and actresses. It's not so glamorous no question of course I mean there's all those. Stories about going out there and and trying to get roles. But then you end up Boston tables or whatever it is. But yeah, I mean, it sounds glamorous if you make it and you can sort of pick your roles but I'm sure there's even the great ones I'm sure have Terendak stories and then I remember when Ben Affleck did that Batman movie and it was got panned and how horrible he thought that he had done and that movie afterwards and they were like me his face in the interviews. Bringing up how the reviews were terrible. I think about too I mean that guy you know how much money is he made the the celebrities he's been married to. You would think he's got a glamorous life in this one picture of him I. Don't know if you've ever seen this one picture him whereas smoking a cigarette outside a restaurant where he looks like his entire life as collapsed on him. Ways just looks terrible over Wade's flushed out. He looks like he's been drinking forever. He's smoking cigarette and I'm like this is not one a celebrity should be looking like if this man stature at the end of the day, they're just people there you. xactly right. All right CEELO is back and he's got a sports update force. What's going on Chris our guys to double headers in the Bronx, over the weekend met swept the Yankees Friday which included a walk off your return, the favor on Sunday. Now Diaz, oa-to swung on and loop to right field there is A. Conforto feels here comes talk here comes the throw and he is saying. Ballgame over Yankees win the. Yankees. Forcibly John Sterling here on the Fangio or shell on his return from a bone spur in his elbow, which cost him a couple of days lines the game winning single to right field eight seven the final innate innings after the yanks array seven, two deficit in the seven shame about throw Chris. I'm sorry to interrupt with the shame that throw is a couple of plays prior heath conforto throws that seed to third base that should have ended the game, and here if he's of foot more to the left, it's an it's an out and he just slightly up the line maybe if his catcher is a little more athletic but an aggressive. Yeah. Yes. So the Yanks win the game there, Aaron Hicks, with the game tying two run homer off Edwin D. as in the seventy as also allowing her Shell is game winner another rough outing for him in the nightcap Gary Sanchez with a pinch hit Grand Slam at the top of the to send the Yanks to a five two victory. So after playing zero extra innings games through their first thirty, this season they played to yesterday they win both of them Aaron Boone your thoughts on the new extras rules, as well as seven inning doubleheaders of those were all nine inning games. You know that that would be kind of a problem. Yeah I mean today. I. Liked it. Three out of five in the series, and this was a weekend where Boone says, you could feel the lack of fans in the building had a bit of an impact. There are those games when you know. We're playing the red sox or another really good team in a big in a big spot where especially in our building. Where you missed that is fan base. Huge it for Sanchez to swing the series in their favor after he went out for four in game won the batting average was right around one thirty. I understood that if the ball well. Deep Fly Ball was coined Ronin Gaydos lead and. Lucky enough. You know hit that and get left the park over the bullpen and into the left field bleachers and absolute bomb David Garcia excellent his major league debut. He retired the first nine in order struck outside in the third. He ends up with sittings of four hit one run ball in that run was on earned. Thanks to an error on Luke. voight walks six strikeouts. What will he take with him moving forward most likely it's going to be the first out you know. is going to be something I'm always going to remember how about the connection with Erik Kratz, who he refers to as Padre. From him in the dugout following the outing. Kratz, before the game said, he was gonNA catch his son pretty cool. Sixty forty right krantz forty exact. So Six plus innings zero earned runs in an NFL debut. MLB. Debut for the Yankees first time since nineteen ninety two and only the second one they've had since nineteen, thirty four and also for Kratz, small sample size with him by Yankee pitchers have a two point one four era throwing to him just one earned over the last twenty one and a third with all the other Yankee Catcher of this four point seven two. So he's giving you what you need from a forty. Year old it doesn't hit much in his obviously on the night of his career but seems to call and catch a good game and the results have backed that up. We'll see about Aaron Hicks he left game to with cramping in both of his calves says, he needs to do a better job taking care of his body during the grueling stretch is hydrated. More understanding that you know I gotta stretch more. There's a lot more things that I got need focus on before games. And that's pretty much what I have to do. I think these guys drink water and Gaya rate and things like that nonstop. I. Don't know what to make. Been Really don't we? It's insanity to me, and the fact that hydration stretching is still a problem when every player on the team is pulling mussels all over the place I something is up something is bizarre that's going on over there. I remember. Yeah. What are these guys like totally like? Eastern medicine people like I don't drink any water. Just, lick this powder and it'll be fine and we'll what we'll do is we'll hit this gung behind you and then you're careful be cured. What are we doing I? Mean I remember we used to get on Odell. Beckham junior for nine hydrating and not liking drinking water and that he'd have to go in for fluids. Every game I mean the Yankees are fifty times worse than that. It's like five six players on the team that I don't know it's we're going to go around in circles again it just make any sense it makes no sense. Played. We've seen this routine to Aaron. Judge want to go on the L.. One hundred percent, and then I came back running from first to second he heard it again right apparently, he needs twice as long to rehab according to. Brian Cashman. So who knows when we'll see him again yanks the raise coming in again at one of first of three tonight at the Stadium Garrett, Cole Time Glass. Now, starters tonight pregame on the fan six, twenty, five K. looking for a bounceback after taking the loss down in Atlanta. Last week Tampa Bay comes. In hot water surprise in office sweep of the Marlins they've won five in a row and they lead the yanks by three and a half to on the law side atop the AFC east as for the mets set lugos started game two last night lifted after three and two thirds. One run seven as he wanted to tell Louise rose he was good to go longer. Yeah. Trying to catch his attention before he signaled to the Empire to go to the bullpen and. So it was not successful. Yes. He don't walk two guys in the evening about that Oh last time out you were mad they pull them early you back in the different situation. Yeah with the pull yesterday I e Yeah I thought he kinda lost his way a little bit okay Ross comfortable with where they're at as far as moving in from the bullpen to the rotation and says, it's a process a force equality starts wants it keeps rushing out today hit the sixty numbers in discounts a little bit of stress in that that last innings. So they got him out of there. They went to chase street who did the job not so much for D. as in the opener, the seventh and the eighth did not go his way says, he wasn't fully warm when he first came in before I got into the game I was only able to throw about eight nine or ten warm up pitches at that. Point. So I wasn't able to go with my with my regular routine so he doesn't start cleaning they throw them in there minuting and obviously it blows up in their face backfires they are little light in the pen right now del Potenza Stephen Matt's both place on the I l. over the weekend. Mets have the makeup game with the marlins today at one ten. Jacob. degrom Trevor Rogers then off to Baltimore for two with the Orioles leading into Thursday's makeup game with the Yanks at city field elsewhere last night the braves with ten run second inning had to hold on the wild one of the phillies twelve to ten avoiding three-game sweep. Look out for the White Sox they're up to twenty one thirteen following a walk off win yesterday. And he hits one of the air into deep left Field Gordon Chasing back track wall. Lowest Robert with a walk off three run shot. The White Sox win it five to two over the Kansas City royals here in ten innings, socks, radios, they continue to play well, a lot of young talent in their lineup not so much young talent Adam wainwright on his thirty ninth birthday throws his first complete game since two thousand, sixteen cardinals beat Cleveland seven to two and Kinda funny moment I guess they were headed to the airport afterwards to head to their. Next city wherever they're playing. So he tweeted out a picture of his teammate Jack Florida the young pitchers, the cardinals who is waiting form at the airport with a sign that says, Mr Adam wainwright and had the wheelchair for him. So he Ford Him from the team bus to the to the gate I guess in a wheelchair having some with him on his thirty nine sure somebody'll be offended by that right. That's a good point. That the old the old the old person alliance of America now boycotting Cardinal Games. Padres crush the rockies thirteen to to San Diego keeps on rolling twenty one and Fifteen Fernanda Totti's junior three for four two doubles his strong season continues and San Diego going all in. We talked about it Jerry with boomer on Friday that they're on the rise up and coming team we spent right would you say Chris we had like a five minute segment on the Badran? Talk quite a bit about them who? Hard core sports talk right here Jay. Did a five minute all sports talk on the PUCK. Into the pot. Yes. boomers into it and he was into that lineup. He was breaking down one nine. Yeah. Yeah. We did some padres talking about Petco Park and how much you like it out there. That was pretty much how it started though you were playing the highlights all the the video, and we were talking about the stadium and. Hit the ball onto the roof of that building and left was that it was right on. Somebody else. One of their man he's got like an over under bet because that's how I knew. So used to be yeah. went to the diamondbacks right and then Mike would do that too is so funny there was one year where he would like open up the show three or four times a week about the Minnesota twins. Could never understand in a gaze got over. You gotTA watch out for those twins man I. You thought they were dead in the eighth but and they brought back and you know I. I it looks like they're gonNA, maybe get to ninety, one, ninety, two wins you know right around and so we'll keep an eye on that I'm like. You know I was so naive at the time I, keep an eye on the twins a win total and some come on figure it out and I said, Oh yeah that's right. Before we get to the mets and Yanks twins again folks Maui. Tell you. What you WANNA plan. the padres active leading up to today's deadline and made a bunch of moves at a seven player deal with the Mariner's yesterday also picked up Mitch Moreland from the Red Sox veteran Catcher, Jason, Castro from the angels and they had added Trevor Rosenthal from the royals Saturday deadline today at four o'clock. Now in. Toronto back to back for the islanders in the flyers, the aisles win both of them eleven seconds left in game four pileup Juru in a battle with Mayfield who a good job with five seconds left great work by Scott. Mayfield heloc kits to it and the New York. Islanders. Lead this series three games to one as John Forslund on NBC. So they take the three one lead in the third Brock Nelson second goal of the game and then they hold on to beat Philadelphia three two, two JJ patio had the other goal for the aisles and Thomas greis stepped in as Jim pointed out last hour got his first start since early March, he was great thirty six saves for head coach Barry Trots tonight He was outstanding I. Thought he was Second period he was unbelievable, and in third period, he hears the same and we needed him because the rest of the team sucked. Pretty much what he said it's Interesting both coaches when it was a back to back situation, you don't see that in the playoffs that often but they both went to their backups and the Vegas Golden. Knights did that with Marc? Andre Fleury last night as well. It's not like these. He's never played back to back star in the regular season. So interesting in the playoffs they both went to the backups and grace obviously played well, enough a really well, and they get the win they're up three games to one game five will be played tomorrow night NBA. Now we highlighted last again this one on one duel that continue seemingly between Jamal Marian Donovan, Mitchell with the nuggets and the Jazz Murray one upping Mitchell again last night. Got Old Nice Steel by Tori Craig loose ball comes Jamal Marie for three. This guy is insane. Jason He's one of my favorites is cosmic. Yeah. He's he's got energy sure nuggets radio. He goes for fifty again in one, thousand, nine, hundred and one zero seven victory to set up decisive game seven, Murray, seventeen of twenty four from the field nine of twelve from three point range head coach Mike Malone says he is just on another level right now. Emotions are a result of that. This is Anthony Austin gain. Exhausting experience being down here and Agile malls mental toughness. Think is I don't know many. Mentally, joke Jamal Murray what he's doing right now, and he was emotional after the game both on the court on TNT, and then as he headed for the locker room, obviously a lot going on in and around the NBA this week or last week, I should say in. ORLANDO. So they'll play game seven coming up tomorrow night as Denver tries to win three in a row to. Come back from a three one series deficit clippers to care the Mavericks one eleven ninety seven finish off that series and game six, Leonard Thirty three points fourteen rebounds, seven assists you had the Marcus Morris Senior? Look. Don-shik incident late first quarter, Morris. Get subjected for a flagrant to as he basically slapped Lucan the head on a drive to the basketball players had to be restrained from. Going after each other after that Celtics game, one of their second round series with the Raptors one, twelve, ninety four, you've got the bucks in the heat opening their series tonight at six, thirty game six between the rockets and the thunder follows that with Houston up three two in that series, we mentioned unique in God quake traded over the weekend from the Jaguars to the Vikings so. He gets himself out of Jacksonville. Hopefully, he'll be a little bit happier with Jesus team in Minnesota also the BMW championship second leg of the fedexcup playoffs a wild finish Dustin Johnson makes a forty three foot double breaker on eighteen to force a playoff and Jon Rahm drains a sixty six foot Birdie putt for the win and good for him I. Don't know if you guys saw on. Saturday, he had a penalty stroke for picking up his ball on the green without marking it. I did not see that. Oh, he just had a total brain fart. He gets to the green picks up his ball realizes Oh crap i. didn't Mark It. So they they gave him a penalty stroke. It was the only bogey made on the weekend. So of course that was a story. Line, as he's contending throughout Sunday and he even said, I, hope I don't lose by stroke and has to go to the playoffs and then he does an interesting storyline between the top two players in the world and they will head into this week's tour championship one, two in those Fedex Cup standings John Thompson the legendary Georgetown coach. This is now confirmed from his friends and his family. Passed away through the night at the age of seventy eight have not seen a cause of death yet but we send our condolences and our best wishes to his family the Georgetown community also coming up later this morning the US Open getting underway in Queens obviously. Yeah. There will be no fans in attendance but we will have the tennis Grand Slam event here in New York. Each. The morning show with boomer. esiason and Gregg Giannotti boomer and GEO expert. Oh on the fan and CBS sports network wherever you are as well on radio DOT COM eight, seven, seven, three, three, seven, sixty, six, sixty, six. If you want to join the show couple of trade deadline thoughts coming up in a second because of course, today on August thirty first is the one and only. Deadline. In Major League baseball is really only one rumor out there with both the locals. That is something that is somewhat interesting and it's sort of a rebirth of an old rumor from last year but we'll get to that in a second but I want to tell Jerry about this because I know that he is into this stuff. So, I. Believe it was a Monday. So it was a week ago. We're just sitting on the beach eating and drinking because that's all we do. Right and somebody comes down the beach says, Hey, I don't know if you got word but you gotta stay out of the water for an hour I said why? Shark signing I said get the Hell Outta here shark signing I looked down the beach and everybody's at a water and they're pointing in they're looking next thing you know Suffolk County police helicopter dispatches. Going around circling in the area looking for the sharks and I'm thinking to myself like what happens if they see them from up there start shooting Shoot them. But I didn't understand like I. Guess They Radio Down and say, yes, indeed there are sharks in the water you can't go in it's probably what would happen but. Police helicopter like what are you? What are they GONNA do? Like drop a grenade in the But but yeah. So apparently, yeah, there were a couple of them. I don't know what type of sharks there were rumors that there were bull sharks I don't believe it was bull sharks, but they're like the most dangerous sharks I think people were talking about them scare everybody. But yeah, they're they were sharks have been a lot of people. This is not uncommon for this summer I mean, I guess it's probably happened more. Than we know. But this summer in particular when it happens, you know we see it everywhere. You just posted on facebook you see it on social media. It's been in the news and they've been closer to shore than ever. So it is and we went to L. B. I a few weeks ago and you know we went in the water but nothing waist-high high that's it. I'm not going any further so I'm not. I'm not into that anymore. It's just it's enough I like a good pool. You can say what you want about the poll I'll take the pool. Good. Yeah. I still was in the ocean plenty. It didn't bother me I know I just don't it never used to happen around here either never there was never a shark sighting or shark bites or anything. But things have changed so out there but it happens it does happen I mean Cape Cod. Happens all the time scary stuff. No doubt and it takes away from what you WANNA. Do because while we went in the water, the one thing we really didn't do we didn't let. Joseph go out there with the with the BOOGIE board too far out in I. Just it's just not worth it like what's the point you know? Yeah, whatever is this. Yeah. I I still go into the ocean especially on the days where if you see a bunch of those bunker though which is schools of fish right close to the shore that's when you don't WanNa go on the on the water. That's when you know there's something there's something out there that's wants to eat those things and then if your foot gets caught Up in that mix probably not a good situation. All right. So you got the trade deadline four PM today. So listen to Joe and Evan while they're on it'll be there and I don't know if there's going to be any sort of major breaking local trade deadline stuff but the only thing I've seen with the mets is Christian Vasquez of the Red Sox Catcher to come over and help, they're catching situation, which of course, has been a disaster since Mike Piazza retired. So that's something that you might keep an eye on and also the Josh Hater rumors her back for the Yankees out and we know how talented this guy is what a boost that would be. The bullpen would just be insane if you add him the one thing that of course scares me about hater what you're giving up if you're the Yankees and you come knocking on the door of some of these young players that. The Yankees have it. We've seen glimpses of and you saw another one in David Garcia, which would not be a part of this deal. It'd be shocked. Of course, you start seeing these guys everybody who comes up contributes. It's almost like I need to go out and get a Josh Hater to win a world series this year I don't know that one that one's scares me a little bit I i. don't know I'm just afraid of what the Yankees would give up what that player would turn into me. See Clint Frazier for crying out loud. I mean how many trade rumors clint frazier been in now he's untouchable in my opinion at this point with all the injuries they've had and how how he's looked I completely agree with that I think I need to know what the Yankees are going to be healthwise I mean so so do they obviously, but you know what is the prognosis at what point do guys come back? When are they healthy? When is the rotation whole? There's there's a lot of question marks with. Like a lot of teams, I mean the injuries Chris detailed on Friday I. Think it was the injuries through however many games at a thirty, five, thirty, six games. You know from years past two this year and they're through the roof this year and most of the guys mostly pitchers I've heard a couple of them say you know that Shorten Summers Spring Training whatever you WANNA call. It was really hurtful and not helpful to be in shape and proper baseball shape You know what are the Yankees in? Three weeks or do they really feel like they have to make this move? You know the position they're in is not ideal. It's not where I thought they'd be but they're also right there and you know they've won three in a row. Now, all of a sudden they get on a little bit of a run and you know you're kind of marching towards the postseason. So if they feel they need to do it I'm sure they will. Brian. CASHMAN has never been one not to pull the trigger on something. But I'm with you I would not give up the farm for someone like that as good as he might be and as you know as much as he can help I I wouldn't just give up everybody to get them I just wouldn't do it I'm sure you guys talked about this last week but brody is in an impossible situation it's tough. Absolutely impossible because you're damned. If you do damned if you don't, if he sits on his hands with team who still as an opportunity, a very real opportunity to make the playoffs if you're a couple of things are addressed and Dawson do it, and then you find out man and the starting pitcher here or adding to the bullpen there or whatever it may be. You could've put this team over the top and a year that you could have capitalized. Know them getting hot with another year of? Jacob degrom dominance like why didn't you do it and then you hear the other side of things like so you're gonNA trade away more prospects to add to this team that really isn't all that good. When you've already traded away guys that you'd love to have back in your farm system if you could do it over again and you've got an owner, a new owner potentially hopefully coming in and Steve Cohen that we all believe that's finally going to happen and you may not even have a job. By the by the start of next season this off season coming up. So I, I don't know I guess the the answers operate like you're going to be the general manager for the next ten years. That's really the only way to do it but I mean is that reality for sure for it but the question is, what is he going to be allowed to do I mean more? So than anything I mean he does have a job to do he is still the GM of the mets I. Don't know what that relationship is with. The wilpon is right now after last week I mean, that was an you're in here, but we touched on it that was a messy twenty four hours for sure with what happened with the microphone on and you know what I don't even blame him for that should not have happened unless he was trying to get himself fired that should have never happened That said it did you know if you're if you're the incoming owner assuming all goes right all goes well. You're going to say anything you can dictate what happens because nothing's done yet. So they're a very average team. Do I think there are a few pieces away from me and pretty good probably, but I don't know that you can get those pieces. So I, think as you say the catching position if you can help yourself out there, I would do that for sure. But I think starting pitching is just GONNA cost. Way Too much and I think he's got to deal with it and hope that this offense you know find more consistency I think that's the biggest thing with them is that they're feast or famine how many times have received, go out and either not score put up a run don't give proper run support of the starting Pitcher, and then the next day they put up twelve runs and sure average that six game. That's not the way it works they need to find consistency and I think they have the guys to do caller brought up Pete Alonzo before, would you have ever thought honestly going back to last year I know guys have slumps the second year would you have ever thought that Peter Lonzo would be six or seventh and be struggling this badly throughout the season right? So you've got the pieces in place guys. GotTa go out there and Produce Dominic Smith has been really good brandon mo good. Sometimes horrific other times conforto has been as steady as they've come. He's been really good and Kano's been on fire but they've got a collectively do it as a group and until they do it, you know they are going to be what they are average baseball team that might squeak into the playoffs. Maybe you want a game or two. And that's about it. As I sit here this morning I'm confident that the season will finish confident that football in the NFL is going to be okay but. If you're a general manager. Can you make a deal for a guy who's a rental player with confidence that the season is going to continue? I mean. That's another part of this. You never had to worry about in other years. All right. I'm going to trade for a rental player whose contract is up at the end of the year and I, know that the season is going to finish at this point if it does not then we're talking about one of the worst deals possible if you gave up something of significance. That's a good question I. Don't know. I can you operate worried that the virus is GonNa shut the game down I guess I think though if I was a GM and I was in line to make a run I've got to operate as normal I do and I know this is a very abnormal year and there's nothing that we know is going to happen tomorrow. Let alone you know three weeks from now but I do think that we have to trust in the process that we've put forth. I think aside from a couple of outbreaks. If you would've told me thirty, five, thirty, six games in that we'd be where we are I probably would have. said that they've done well so I would go with the theory that we're going to get through the season. You're already hearing about the bubble postseason cities so that once we get to the end of September that there will be no stoppages and they'll be able to complete the playoffs It's risky. It's dicey. But if I think that I have a team that compete to win the world series, I am probably going full steam ahead but I've got to be I can't be team on the bubble or a fringe team. I've got to be a team that really thinks that they can win with a tweak here or there. But isn't this the year that the fringe team can win I mean that's the other part of this like this. Year that that that team who is on the cost could make a season out of this that they would have never imagined that they could have had. Yes. But you also know your team too I. Mean there are teams that we look at we can look at a record and say, Oh, you never know they could make a run. You know what you have I mean I you know could could could a team sneak? Up like the brew and we're talking about the brewers and Josh Hader the brewers right now are on the outside looking in. If they all of a sudden, let's say they didn't trade hater and you know they kinda stayed as they are and all of a sudden they won three or four games in a row and they got themselves in the mix that the of team that can make a run I think they are i. Think they are I don't know you know the other teams in the let's say a team that's tenth or ninth let's say the nationally and looking at the mets do you think the mets right now with that starting pitching is the type of team that can make a run I don't know that they are. Now, of course, I own type of time talking about, right? Yeah. I, don't but then brody brody could be thinking to. Himself well, hell I mean, what do I have to lose weight comes back to the problem that we have with him as GM right now with what's going on with the team is exactly the point you started this with air in impossible spot and I would say you just got address them, but that hasn't gone so well over the last couple of years with the moves he's now do you think the Wilpon mad at him? Or do you feel like they had to do? Well so there's one school of thought that. Moves, Chris, brought it up. We don't know but there's one school of thought they were just covering for the commissioner that you know he was the one that suggested it. Then there's the other school of thought that yeah, they're pissed at him because it was jeff's idea and he shouldn't have said anything. I'm going to say, yes, I'm GONNA say an only because they released two separate statements. In his name wrong which is all too. Yeah. That too. But I'm GONNA say because both Fred N Jeff, release? Statements. I would say that they were breathing fire. Yeah I'd say it's possible that could have been so much worse than it was I mean grody in protecting himself. I mean that could have been so much worse mean basically what he just said was rob Manfred doesn't get it on a leadership level in Jeff Wilpon. You're there was so much at stake in playing the Games and he said to the guys whoever he was talking to. This cannot leave the room, but I, mean imagine. When you know a cameras on, you're talking about something like that. Jeff is a total dummy like I told you he was a dummy. What a nuts? Could have gone really bad. About. Rob Manfred is a total a hole. Filled with rocks, I told you this is example a who wants to fight me on it. Now I rest my case. These guys are total idiots. My God but no I mean it was a tame if anything I, thought he came out of this kind of looking good. Maybe just having a conversation. Yeah. Yeah. The conversation that should've never got out he seemed like he understood the players perspective better than anybody else yeah. No doubt no doubt and he would be the one to understand them. Know Rhody the brody era coming to a close unfortunately for him it just as and you know just a couple of years and championships this year every year fluid to the top all that stuff I mean I it there's just he's not going to be around that's going to going to be the end of it. You're probably right each morning show with boomer Esiason and Greg. boomer and Geo so I'm sure that CEELO would have this coming up at his update. He's got a lot other local stuff how `Bout Leonard Fournette gets released by the Jaguars when he five years old. I mean come a number four, overall pick twenty, five years old they are just they they don't. They went from going to an AFC championship game they had a real shot in. Two. Nothing. They've got nobody jalen Ramsey gone. JANAKA is gone. Leonard Fournette is gone I mean what a mess my Lord and to think that they couldn't get anything for Leonard. Fournette it's not like he's a thirty five year old running as a twenty, five year olds running back. Couldn't get a thing for the guy. That happens doesn't that make you think something may have happened? With like an injury. Can't release a guy who's got. No you can't release them. If there's an injury may be something off the field maybe something in the locker room he's had some ups with their with the Front office along the way here. I know Tom. Oftens gone now but. I don't know he's ruffled I know in the off season. He you know he had when they got back to campaign garments. You kind of had to clear the air a little bit because he was openly campaigning for. Cam Newton. I mean. Unless there's some sort of horrific. Criminal Story, that comes out. To not get a fourth round pick conditional fifth round something for this guy is is. Organizational Malfeasance I. Think I'm on in his walk year though because they declined his fifth year option so I don't I don't hear you gotta get. Some twenty, five years old. He's been a productive player for them. Understand he's had issues with injuries but. That's a that's an odd one. That is a very, very odd one to me. But yeah, maybe there is something else fliegelman made an interesting point in my ear 'cause the jets made that trade for Kaelin Balaj that fell through he failed his physical. Maybe, the jets bring him in. I know they've got some big names already in Bill Gore, but I mean. I don't know if Frank Frank Gore wasn't there would make a lot of saints. There's no way. Yeah. Because with the lodge, they were really just looking for special teams work more so than for him to do any carrying the football. So yeah, probably not but I mean and coaches love frank or like frank ore is like the the coach's dream golly does is just go out there and just take the rock doesn't complain whatever four yard tier three yards there when you need it on A. Second and two I mean. He's just the guy that you lean on and then Leonard like you're not gonNA. Trade one guy for like that for a massive pain in the ass? I understand he's been a problem, but he's still productive twenty five years old with all that talent. I duNNo. You would have enjoyed last week lady on Bell Hamstring situation with gays and on the same day he was just like drooling over Frank Gore and how amazing he looks at thirty seven. So, here we go. With Love Bell engaged again. I. Mean they apparently cleared the air over the weekend I know gay said he thought they had a better relationship than that for bell go to social media. So you've got some drama there already with those two and we're not even to the beginning of the season. Good time. Awesome. Shall we do the baseball? Yes. Let's do it. So Edwin as was great against the Yankees, Friday night, not so much on Sunday and the payoff swung on and lie to write it is high. It's a tying two run home run off the bat of Aaron Hicks, Hicks Hits One to the sticks or just over the right by a matter of inches. Here, on the fan details, the five runs seven for the Yankees to erase a seven two deficit gio or shallow than one the game with an RBI single in the bottom of the eighth as the Yanks took Sunday's opener eight, two seven. Here's Aaron Boone on Hick saving the day not that anyone's a good matchup for Diaz but you know he's he's got a good shot there with his ability to handle the heater and and he put one big swing on one. So that was huge. Hick says it was a good spot for him. Hunting DS fastball just wanted to be able to to kind of have some. Be Ready be ready for the for that kind of pitch and. That kind of yellow and you know obviously I was excited you know to to hit the home run. He was able to lock in on the heater because Diaz didn't have the slider working now in game two big swing. The Bat was the difference Gary Sanchez pinch hit Grand Slam top of the eighths in the Yanks to a five two win and a doubleheader sweep that one came off of Drew Smith here's Boone on sending a struggling Sanchez to the plate in place of Erik Kratz I like the match up there thought he was having a good at bat and then he gets a two strikes and Still. Laid off some pitches that he should have and then blasted a high fastball over the bullpen it into the left field bleachers posed an admired it to before flipping is bat looking into the Yankee dugout before all that David Garcia excellent his big league debut as he set the first nine down in order struck out the side and the third ends up going six innings just four hits one run on earn no walk six. KS Boone says he has everything under control. You saw the good curveball that. He had gone to and I thought he did a good job of mixing in his changeup slider just enough thought him in Kratz. You are on a page together Padre craftsy the forty year old journeyman catcher. Obviously, they've had some time together at the alternate site in Scranton to build a bit of a report. So Garcia was great. Yanks aren't exactly loaded in the rotation right now beyond coal and Tanaka. So what's next for him and I know Garcia was the twenty ninth today what what happens to them now? We'll. Talk about that and. Ship back to you and. Sent him back to the alternate site, but he could easily be recalled later this week especially since the Yanks to another double header in Baltimore coming up on Friday I up for them though here come those damn raise again three-game set at the Stadium Garrett Cole Tyler Glass now, the starters tonight pre game on the fan at six twenty five Tampa Bay comes in on five game winning streak swept the marlins over the weekend Willie ADAMAS. With a grand slam yesterday as part of a twelve seven victory raise of taking six out of seven from the Yanks already this season. See if the bombers can now fight back a little bit in this three-game set at the stadium. Now back to the mets, there's really not much more to play for you. You know we heard desa he liked the pitchy through the Hicks in game one row s tipped his Cap Sanchez for the Grand Slam in game two, and now they move on and they do have a couple of injuries from over the weekend. The tencent Stephen Mats placed on the I l.. They've got a makeup game with the marlins today at one ten you always feel good about Jacob degrom. Offense, we'll see if they can actually get him some runs, and if the bullpen can hold elite for a change, Miami will start Trevor Rogers and then the mets are off to Baltimore for two with the Orioles leading into Thursday's makeup game with the Yanks at city field. Elsewhere, the braves with a ten run second last night at Citizens Bank held on to beat the phillies twelve ten as an astros had their series finale called off the as a positive covid nineteen tests over the weekend the padres continue to mash this time on the road, of course field. All right. And that I thought. We were going to hear from Ted Lighter who's the other one of these interesting out of town play by play guys and the poverty auctioneers guy sounds like the auctioneer exact him. Well I did my bed. Deal deals high fly ball. If it's fair, it's gone deep g right field. That ball is gone homerun Josh Naylor. Could you hear it? Could you hear it? My goodness hurt the PELOTA. Balls gotTa have a dent in it of some sort. There you go. pin-drop is what you can hear he's In Colorado I I understand why? Even if you were in, Colorado could hurt a pin drop anyway because there's nobody there. No. Yeah. But some stadiums have affects running. In their yes that was a part of a thirteen to pounding of the rockies. San Diego Up to twenty one in fifteen, they've got the second most wins in the NFL. They're five back at the dodgers in the West la setting the record for homers in a month National League record fifty, seven of them they beat the Rangers seven two, they are yet to. Lose a series so far this season they're pretty good they are, and the padres are trying to not that they necessarily have to catch them. Obviously, they can get into the playoffs without doing. So but they're trying to you know get a little bit closer to the dodgers and they made a flurry of moves over the weekend seven player trade with the Mariner's yesterday as. They pick up Austin Nola and some bullpen help also picked up Mitch Moreland from the Red Sox Jayson Castro from the Angels Trevor Rosenthal from the Royal. So quite a bit of action for them heading into the trade deadline coming up today at four o'clock I've seen the Yankees connected to Arizona for outfielder starling, Morte potentially and Cleveland reportedly shopping my clever seems. That, there's a lot of teams interested in there as we expected after what happened with him over the course of the last couple of weeks in Francisco Lindores apparently on the block as well. Jump in at least open to discussions on their shortstop between now and four PM. Let's go to the hockey. Now in Toronto the islanders getting it done against the flyers again, devante. Prescott Mayfield. He sets up Hash Oh he's right shut down by. Sean Gabriel show does it again To One. On NBC everything seems to be going right for patio here in the playoffs, he has been a difference maker brought Nelson as well. Couple of goals. Last night aisles built a three one lead held on the beat Philadelphia three to to take a three one series lead Thomas Greis steps in and got his first start. Since early March thirty six saves and he says, it was helpful that he got a little action in game two after sending on Varlamov was pulled from that one tiffany Nice. Practicing Games different different just. Get. Him again to reads and. Traffic itself to in practice so nice. Get into. The rust off and night worked out for them pretty well here in this one, thirty six saves to help the aisles win and now they put the flyers on the brink of elimination they'll try to close it out tomorrow night in game number five. NBA Jamal Murray another fifty point effort his second in three games I think he had forty two and the other one. So he has been just unconscious for the nuggets they beat the jazz last night one, nineteen, one. Oh, seven to force a decisive game seven what should be played tomorrow night clippers care the Mavericks won eleven ninety-seven L. A. Finishing off that series and game six. Leonard Three points fourteen rebounds seven assists Celtics took game one of their second round series with the Raptors one twelve, ninety four gave the Leonard. Fournette News, he's been waived by the Jaguars. So after the look and find out if there's anything more to that story, Jacksonville also shipping off unique in Gakugei to the vikings over the weekend plus he agrees to revised one year twelve, million dollar deal without a no tag Klaus Meeting Minnesota could slap him with the franchise tag for next year Minnesota You keep them unique is I've always heard Janaka genie. That's how most people pronounce it and I'll allow Mike Zimmer do the rest for you hit its leagues. Why the trade to Acquire Jahic from Jacksonville. But I'm not I'm not I'm not allowed to. Comment on it until. The trains official. So I know how to pronounce his name but I can't tell you whether or not. We've acquired acquired. So most people bionic it's. Never heard anything different. That's interesting. Yes. So He's a Viking now and those are Gary Cohen Calling Gary Sanchez Gary Sanchez over all the we oh Yes, always done that though. Yeah gardell fallen so. Is that. You know what I'm saying yes. Yeah. I'll fall to. Say, Alex Rodriguez I, used to drive down. About something that would get him hot and bothered you said Salafists He. Would say Rodriguez instead of Rodriguez that he kind of course drove him nuts. Sawn. Sanchez. Sanchez. Perez. Perez Perez who will be Perez? Right? Well, I'll be more Peres. Oliver Perez was the Perez of pride. Remember now again, both ways. Yeah. The player and ask them I guess now does he call Ollie Ollie Sanchez or Sanchez? I don't remember now third-string. I. Would say probably Sanchez because this stood out to me over the weekend the here's Sanchez hope I feel like you said Sanchez though because he said something there was like he had a Passive aggressive way of saying that he stinks. Always Sanchez getting a rare turn at bad like one of those things. But I think he said Sanchez, I think he did I. Don't remember I was another thing you missed last week G I mean I'm sure you saw it but not awed it's. Backed them stealing home. Yes. But it's the throw home still out by five feet. What's his name? Was it for a familiar can actually throw the ball and that's Mike it into the ground with the worst throws in a sixty foot. Sixty S he comes down off the mountain is probably more like forty five feet and again been thrown out a third if I don't know they cover the bag, right? Yeah. That was. That was one of the highlights found me quick. Boy. Funds Oh. Yes. Buji Yeah. Sounds like the the maitre d' from Ferris Bueller? Right because that's That's exactly absolutely. That's what it brings to mind. Yes. SNOOTY. Jon Rahm Sixty six foot Birdie PUTT to be Dustin Johnson on the first playoff hole yesterday wins the BMW championship second leg of the fedexcup playoffs quite the finish after Johnson made just a ridiculous forty five footer a double breaker on eighteen to force the playoffs. So those two guys showing off they are one two in the world rankings also won two in those fedex. Cup standings heading into the season finale the tour championship coming up later this week from east. Lake Down there in Georgia US Open begins today in Queens and again as confirm now by his family and Georgetown as well. Legendary basketball coach John Thompson passed away at the age of seventy and did you guys either one is you see the scrimmages, the giants jets scrimmage and I'm just curious how it looked I. I didn't get a chance to know my videos live i. saw some of the photos I know they've got new turf, they put in their life. The green you off green or the dark green, right? It looks cool and apparently it's got its it's heated underneath the first time they've got heated turf. So come the winter I guess that'll I've brought up with the rain and wet and snow if not I know the jets it wasn't they did more of just a practice in a scrimmage i. Guess gays wanted to run through some of the logistics of going in for halftime in the locker rooms and the covert procedures. Right. But they've got a million guys heard at wide receiver. I mean Sam Darnold throwing the guys you've never heard of right now, which is a problem. Actually I keep forgetting to get to a fleet. We got the last cut. From gays there todd P was asked if he has any concerns that it's actually working against Arnold that he hasn't had any reps with his receivers here in camp it's good for his is brain really at the end of the day just the Brian that he's sand. You know the adjustments said, yes, he goes through from practice practice it's different. There's. Different things going on that's really the glass half full approach of all these guys are her well, he's getting some reps with these other guys but I mean there who did they bring in over the weekend on blank next man on the former Colt fleeing Dante moncrieff who was a stone disaster for the steelers last year like a complete and utter bust Day they wanted Antonio Brown quitting on them back but with MONCRIEFF was as disappointing and they thought he was going to be a big red zone factor but you've got to remember too that they lost Ben early on and then they had Mason Rudolph and coaches and everything else. But he I just Doc. You forgot about duck one of those things that you forgot about. Pre. Sports story that sort of. evaporated. Was was duck hodges but Yeah. Moncrieff I mean he's just he's just a warm body at this point if he's I know they're talking about maybe bring it Mary Thomas Backus. He knows the system because he was with them last year. So desperate times for the jets. Each the morning show with boomer science in Gregg Giannotti, boomer and Geo is boomer and Geo on fan and CBS sports network. So earlier, Chris Lopresti said we want to go in again on the Garrett Cole glass now bet because last time we did this we all got together. We're very confident got hold hockey about it and Yeah, we lost and it wasn't even close really. It. Was the last time that Garrett Cole took on the raise and it was a massive line for us. We took the run and a half and we thought that we were. In business, it didn't work out. So these these are the odds this morning on this particular game, which will be taking place at seven, zero, five, nine I don't have. I was also going to give you the mets into today, right but they don't. They don't have that upright now faneuil sports books. I'm going to have to check back a little bit later, which is interesting because you figure one. Oh, five that would be that'd be up there but here we go. So the Yankees on the money line minus one fifty. So they're are pretty heavy favourite when it comes to just win the game. The rays on the money line plus one thirty we is one and a half though don't we? Do we again we want lay there on and a half again. That's mine is one and a half. Plus one, thirty, eight, right. But then we're making the same mistake. We made last time though. They lost the game last time I understand but. I don't know man. I don't know. I'm a little gun shy I gotta be honest with you I'm a little bit. So you're you're telling me you're just flat out in on this like you don't even care. You're not. Even you think that the Senate after winning three in a row you're all in you make you make a bed every night talk I do yes. I do to baseball games and. Baseball Games I do two games on I. Mostly Baseball sometimes across baseball with basketball even even bet on the island think islanders wants I've been on the Dallas Stars. Once. I just I'm not gonNA say what I said last time because I sounded like a fool shocking. I would go all in on. Garrett. Cole again today and again to beat the rays. Can. But you gotta remember it's the running half screws everything up. I mean I, guess I'll just. Ceelo were you on this where? This that hundred percent. A hundred percent one hundred percent got to go back to the well. Man. I'm also coming good golf betting day. So I'm feeling good and I've got some. Yeah. Who'd you have? You had played a bunch of little. We call them sprinkles a couple of bucks a couple of bucks there on some individual match, some finishing positions and it was a good day. So we'll We'll go back to the well tonight with Gary Cole and hope for hope for better results than last time out. The one and a half. Yeah. Sure. Why not? All right. Averages right. Yeah I suppose they've just I mean the rays have been so damn good. Listen if you're going to be like tepid a half in just down. I will will move forward with confidence. We'll move forward when you when you're in a better place with this I don't WanNa get yelled at tomorrow. I like I like being a part of the family. WELL HERE'S THE IN Ten hours to figure it out. Yeah and Ben and GM doesn't have the make either up here. And why is that? I? Don't know. This. Is the starter for the marlins not been announced or something or is there I be a reason why But that'd be another one that would be a nice little parlay because that's what I was thinking. I would do a little Graham Cole Parley Oh now. Okay. Oh, you're talking money line. That's why you're looking for something to get you into the plus situation rather than laying the would yes that's exactly what I'm thinking especially with the pets. That might make more sense, Sherry, than the one and a half with coal. That's go can't find the mets on them. We can't find the mets here. Again, you got ten hours you give time games at one o'clock one o'clock. Yeah. That's why it's surprising. Good call. Because it's short turnaround makeup game I mean we we've a line on everything for crying out also. Off for summer yeah. Yeah, is it because the Marlins have announced who's starting is the only thing I can think of we gave you the guy they're supposed to be starting I thought so too. I, know here's what I know the raise td tomorrow and Wednesday. So. This game is. Five hours. Five hours line on it I'm not sure why it's a good point I mean. It's not just one site it's multiple sites so you tell me that I. See Fish that concerns me them. Yes. I know. I see, I couldn't figure out any other reason why so I could basically bet on. You bet on Dussan, logic. Vich and. At, the US Open but I can't bet mets marlins today. What we should do somebody Serena Williams to win. Let's pick it. Let's pick a random tennis US Open match to. Sure there won't won't won't the one and a half my Garrett Cole but let's pick some Rando. Tennis player have never heard of and throw some cash down on that. Why not? Yeah well. Here's here's a good one like. The, these two seem evenly matched Varvara Gar. CEVA. And pull a DOSA. Great Shave is minus one twelve and doses minus one ten. That's all expecting a tight match. Or we can go with Carolina Police Cova who's twenty five hundred. Twenty five, hundred Cocoa Goff right? No no, she's playing Angelina Kalin. She's plus. She's plus ten, forty, one, thousand plus in forty. That'd be a massive looks like what I'm looking at. It looks like the biggest one. Has To be an absolutely if anybody's. Minus Twenty five hundred GS. Shelby. Minus eleven twelve, that's that's big. But not that's not where you said. Let's see that the. There's a couple of thousand minus thousands Victoria as ARANKA MINUS FOURTEEN THIRTY AGAINST BARBARA? Haas. Yeah I. Think we should I like the one that I gave you. Let's pick who do you like your you'll like Grachev or Barbosa. Gracheva. Like Grachev. So we're going to go with Varvara we're going to do we're going to do a parlay Varvara right? We're going to do it's going to be perfect. Because this is at eleven am so we gotta hit Vara Grachev at eleven. Okay. We gotta hit the mets at one and then we need the Yankees coal at seven three I like this. This is a three game. All right. Cool, and it's all new. York, is all new because you've got the US Open in New York we're going mets them. We're going Yankees I'm sadly going to be locked in the Varvara Gracheva and Paulo Dosa. That's the beauty of it I agree something to do on Monday afternoon that you're exactly right. I don't know about you guys. It's not a great little cloudy here. It's not A. Good. It's but it's a nice day to park yourself front of the television you're not missing much outside. So. All right. So that's all right. I did it last time you WanNa do it this time Jay. I'll tell you why I'm in New York. So it's a little bit tougher. Chris. You want to do this one shirt. What am I doing now? What are we the tennis people again? Yeah. This is Varvara Gracheva against Paul Up Bado. So we're taking Grachev aw, we're taking Grachev. And? Twelve. Yeah Yikes moneyline. Yeah. Now if we don't get the mets. We should probably go. We gotta get something else in the afternoon. Right, and you had to pick it now because only got until eleven o'clock to get Zen Right? Right exactly. So we can't get that mets line see I'm not seeing A. Plus. Govan. That's not good enough. So any other day games here? No I don't see any other day games. About the All New York aspect. Right. Yeah I know. Tonight. nope. Tomorrow everyone else's eliminated. Let's go with. Let's go with another men's match at eleven. All right if. That's you're saying. Right. Seven for the mets we go with another tennis match right and we're going to go. This is the closest one here. Is. Eager Jeremy's off induce on level jets. So Love Vorachit's minus sixty. And Jeremy Office plus one thirty, take that one. You want Jeremy Off I. Mean you want anything about these guys you're gonNA lay minus one sixty on a guy you never heard of you have no idea what kind of fire I find. All right. All right ego or Ego Jeremy it is then. Jeremy SOF is the dangerous part about this. It's like someone will be tweeting us. Did you Jeremy Soft kidnapped five kids? Got Away with. How. Can you bet on this? is going to be. How can you support a man? WHO SUPPORTS DICTATORS? Yeah. All right. So there you go and hopefully we get degrom and if we are we going. We're going money lines on everything that's apart three of them. Yeah absolutely. All right the mets will come back and win. And they'll actually have some support for degrom and then the Yankees all we need them to do is win the game. which would be a lock after the streak was broken for coal. So we'll be alright to you go but make sure Ceelo don't screw it up. Don't Bet Jeremy off unless we can't get that mets long line is up now my friend. Texted me on bedroom GM. Is there I have been in all right yeah. THEM THEIR MIND is to fifty on the money line. Jared. Goff we can cross him out. Cross out. All right. So we don't need him then. The. Proper taking mine is one and a half is mental score. When he pitches, we're not taking the one and a half that's where we're doing a parlay money lines. So it'll be. All right. All right. So for Vara whatever with the G.. CEVA right. GRA CEVA mets money line money line. All right. Right. And you guys can text me separately. Let me know what you want to put down. Yes you want to put that out there on the air that's your call I'm not gonNA lead. Jj Betting show the six o'clock he's got to do with the US Open. He has to do with his voice in these Naomi's names. Listen I haven't Ross. Tuck on and Ross what do you think about Marquette the Vonda. Russo toll. Greet meaning. Meaning serve I like back end. How about Christina Monotone Vich. You man he is something special. You get. In, a room doing the tennis names together. Interesting. Absolutely. All right, feeling good about it. I'm feeling I feel like we got something cooking here and it's an all day affair. We got eleven we out one. We got seven perfect little Monday action for US each the morning show with boomer Esiason and Greg, noddy boomer and Geo serve miss it earlier the Jaguars released running back Leonard for net. So here is the Adam Schefter tweet on that Jaguars did all they could trade ornette in the spring and then again this summer. But Doug Marrone said today, we couldn't get anything. A. Six that's missing. We couldn't get anything and quote. Yeah I guess maybe they thought there was no doubt that he was going to get released. That's what happens when they're certainly leaks and stuff gets out and every team saying, well, why am I going to give up something when they're going to release him if we don't trade for him So who knows it'd be great if he ended up on the Patriots and the Patriots at Cam Newton and Leonard Fournette and just totally revamped and different, and they win another super bowl. That'd be hilarious. But don't see that he's out there. He out I don't know man I don't know. I could definitely see bill belichick swooping in and taking Leonard Fournette. I really could. He loves stomach. You're right. You're right. Bela jet credit for like all he runs this tight ship and all that stuff but he's he's chances on a lot of guys questionable guys. And some of worked out some of them have it but. Cam, Newton is a big one and now four nets out there i. don't think the jets will go and get bill were is still I mean he is. He is Starman that Cam Newton is not gonNA start the season. where he just he really believes that it's going to take I'm just a little longer because it's been such a a bleep show of an off season and just the limited reps and it's GonNa take time to be ready to actually have full control of the offense. And so he thinks them we'll be the starter based on that and they'll have packages for Newton. But he does not believe he will be the starter week one snap one. All excited that Cam last week basically said as much that the he's still learning. The offense doesn't think of himself as the starter and boomer was all over that. He read the quote read the. In their late in the week last week. because. We argued about that for weeks and I just I still think it's ridiculous to think to Cam Newton wouldn't start but I don't know I guess boomer obviously having played the position at the highest level would know better than us. Bought it. Just it just seems that you did. You see that picture that Julian. Middlemen posted of the two of them together like. Superman capes or something I'm thinking like come on if Julian element is posting that. then. He's the starter. But. Who knows what I see That's going to be really interesting if he's not the starter but I I think he's got to be right everybody else's with me on this. Martin I mean boomer makes sense there were any other team but the Patriots I'd be with you but I don't I don't put anything past bell check I'm not saying at some point cams aren't GonNa Start obviously but if they rolled out week one with them, do a package of plays but it shocked me no, it would not. All right see low what else you got over there. All right. Let's Iraq some of the subway series stuff for you. seven-game skid for the Yankees ends up a three game winning streak. You could really make the case either team could swept all five games in this series. It was kind of that tight throughout. But the Yanks take three of five the mets over the weekend Gary Sanchez with the exclamation point last night drew Smith deals swung on and hit high on the year the deep left center that ball is high done as far. As guy has a grand slam, all the sand Chino. He Hits a Grand Slam left center. That Gary is scary. His biggest hit of the year indeed John Sterling here on the fan the pinch hit slam. He's got six home runs only eleven hits this year. So when he connects even though it's not very often it usually goes over the fence and this one went a long way into the bleachers in left field over the bullpen. Gave you the whole the after the after contact situation two he's staring at it. He's pose any. Toss the Bat Feeling good is the yanks finished off the mets and the bottom of the eighth for five to win sweeping Sunday's doubleheader. Before that David Garcia. Excellent his major league debut as he sent down the first nine in order struck out the side and third he finishes with six innings of four hit one run ball and unearned run no walks six strikeouts but it was a no decision as that luke void error that led To the unearned run made it a one one game in the opener yanks trailed seven two and the seventh for rallying for five to tie including the game time home from Aaron Hicks off Edwin D as they wanted in the eighth on Gio or shallow RBI single as he returned from the bone spur in his elbow. So eight seven, the final there little concern for he left game to with cramping and both of his calves but he. and Aaron Boone both downplaying and afterwards, and he felt be able to play tonight in the series opener against the raise WANNA take you back to Saturday now J. Hap- There's been some friction there between him in the front office scenario in Boone so he's throwing a Jim ready into the eighth inning and then boone comes out to get him Here's how that sounded on the Yankees radio. Network here on the fan and here comes Aaron Boone. LEFTIES gone you. There's a Lufti up. After That's Like sort of a laugh out of frustration for John Because he's old school and he hates the idea of these pictures coming out early. I. Also caught him at one point I want to say it might have been Saturday's game as well or yesterday's opener where he wanted somebody to lay a bunt down and they didn't and he got all worked up about that So that's that old school baseball nature coming through you know that just reminded me I think it was Friday that I got sent this one clip about a thousand times of John and Susan. Oh I didn't see this what he got. Surprised that laughed one I only knew because somebody tipped me off to that. Should I send it to get it on the air that quickest fliegelman I would think all right I'm gonNA. Should I text it to you fliegelman or email it to you. Everything. Melon Oh texted. Okay. All right. So this will we're going to do all right and then we'll get. We'll get it on the air as soon as possible but it's definitely it's definitely worth it but it's also a little disturbing that people heard this and thought of our show immediately. So when she when people hear stuff and think of Austin alert us to it because you can't content the content of this particular. As a little disturbing that now, the second that this was I mean just one after another after another. So All right. Well, while they work on that, I'll tell you that the mets have make game with the Marlins. Got Me curious. I will say that same year Jacob degrom opposed by Trevor. Rogers we think and now that it's been, you can bet on it I guess that is official Roger's GonNa. Go for Miami and then the mets get down to Baltimore quick to Gamer with the Orioles and they come back to face the Yankees and the makeup game at Citi field on Thursday as I mentioned the bombers have the coming in and it's Gary Cole and Tyler Glass now again we went We went Col- side the last time these two met that didn't work out so well, they'll give it another. Go Tonight at the stadium pregame on the fan begins at six, twenty, five in the raise in addition to owning the yanks so far this year come in off a sweep of the Marlins they've won five in a row they lead the Yankees by half to a loss side atop the. Couple of the other notables from yesterday the braves with ten run second at Citizens Bank Park. They held on to beat the PHILLIES twelve ten void three-game game sweep Adam wainwright on his thirty ninth birthday throws his first complete game in four years as the cardinals beat Cleveland seven to two, and we've been outlining the padres for throughout the course of the morning another win for them thirteen to two over the rockies there. Twenty one and fifteen as they've become very competitive in the National League. Second most wins in the NFL and to that point, they have been busy here leading up to the trade deadline of flurry of moves to some pieces from various organizations with a deadline on the way today at four o'clock, we'll take you to Toronto now the islanders and the flyers two games in consecutive days in the aisles, win both of them. Out Vocally A for Brock Kelsen. He and Bailey to on one here's. For. Now. With his second. LENDERS WITH A to. Force it on NBC that was midway through the third. So some cushion there for the isles they needed it because the flyers did score to make it three two aisles, hold them off there in the final seconds funnel minute or two to win the game three, two, two, they take a three one series lead over philly. Barry Trots is not been ultra complimentary about his team so far in the series maybe a little gamesmanship there just to make sure his team keeps there I on the ball and that was the case again after this one in my opinion that was the worst game that we've played to this point in the In, the playoffs. winning. Those games that you're not kidding well yeah. So Baylor Nelson rather with a couple of goals G. Paseo had the other. He's been excellent here in the playoffs and Thomas. Grace steps in place of sending on Varlamov who played the night before grace makes thirty six saves as the aisles win the game they're up three one in the series they'll go I hope they'd just go take care of a pet I'm islander fan but go take care of business tomorrow. Let's go. Right into the conference finals pretty good. The way you brought up the Matt Martin goal from. Game three and you mentioned that picture Sydney posted with the because I went to check that out and I also hadn't seen this. She posted Mattie. There in the post game sit next Derek starred at the House. And I had not seen this. It's a short clip I. Wish we had the full thing but so broussard that Martin at the post game press conference, and here's how part of that one and our final question Renault walked off. I'm at the Saturday. Skits noble twitter. Go go he Leo Maximum Usual Thousand Mental Get Stanton? They. Wasn't. On Galilee don't believe in. God. So now, of course, the video. Is Better. But what's happening as he's asking that question obviously infringes Matt's looking to right to persona like is this. Guy Series? Derek for sorry to is French Canadian that I think speaks the language fluently is like smiling he's got this. You know what? Eating Grin on his face and I understand the question you don't. Talk tough spot for Matt Kim No matter your your father in law is the ranger fan and He would like your daughter to grow up as Ranger Fan and what are you going to do with that? It matched faces. He looks like he saw a ghost. Yeah. Completing. What is going on here? The other part of Ontario. Funny moment obviously, all's well when they're winning games, it's lighthearted elsewhere you got Vegas three one Vancouver Dallas up three one on Colorado. The stars go for the clothes out tonight in Edmonton also you have Tampa Bay trying to finish off. Boston. UP IN TORONTO NBA Jamal. Murray. goes off again and he's got the nuggets game seven with Jazz, torey Oh bad pass handled by Yokich kit to Murray for. Fifty. Six nuggets lead it by ten one, seventeen to one. Oh, seven watts cow. Nuggets Radio Fifty for the second time in three games seventeen at twenty four from the field nine of twelve from three point range to go along with six assists and five rebounds. Denver won the game one, nineteen, one, zero, seven, overcoming forty, four from Donovan Mitchell. The two of them have just been insane in the series Murray Emotional afterwards talking about just going through the process here over the course of the last week or so down in Orlando with everything that's been going on across the country. The. Passion. Nowhere you five or something means a whole lot more. We will find this fight for a long time. Retired being tired. He's been carrying it with them and he's been channeling it into his play on the court game. Seven of that series will beat tomorrow night he joined Michael Jordan as the only two players in postseason history with three straight forty point, five rebounds, five assists game. So he has been basically carrying Denver singlehandedly the clippers to care the Mavericks won eleven ninety-seven to finish off that series in game six. Leonard Thirty three fourteen rebounds seven assist lead the way for La, Luanch in his final. Game at the season certainly put forth good effort thirty, eight points nine rebounds nine assists got into it with Marcus Morris Senior Again Morris injected for the flavor and flagrant foul late first quarter, which we heard from Luca earlier not too happy about that after the Game Celtics to gain one of their second round series with the raptors. One, twelve, ninety, four, you got the bucks and the heat and their series opener tonight at six thirty father by game six between the rockets and the thunder. As Houston is looking for the clothes out leading three two in that series g gave you the quotes from Doug. Marrone on Lee Leonard Fournette released by the Jaguars this morning, they could not get anything for him after spending months looking for a trade partner they did find a trade partner for unique in way he is now a member of the Minnesota Vikings as the Viking sent a couple of picks to Jacksonville nothing really all that marquee. Now, they add a pass rusher and also. Get Him to agree to a revised one year twelve, million dollar deal and they retain the ability to hit him with the franchise tag next year. So obviously a guy that was desperate to get out of Jacksonville and now he joins a team that is expected to be a contender in Minnesota. Told you about Dante moncrieff signing with the jets they made that official this morning and they release Kicker Brett Maher. They're kicking situation again has been an issue here in training camp and now Maher's. So I'm not really sure what that leaves them moving forward. But that has been an issue for them throughout the course of camp is fleas ready with the? Yes he is. All right. So this is just So people if they missed it from a couple minutes ago, this was sent to me a hundred times over the weekend something John Sterling said during the broadcast I believe on Saturday. was obviously a crazy year for us and that we have no intercourse at all with the manager of the players. Usually, that APP. Tons of intercourse having. been a manager players. It's a common occurrence where you look down the dugout and you see some intercourse. But not this year it's been on. Susan. Me No intercourse is just one of the many things that. Different about this year and twenty twenty. I remember. We'd see. We'd see intercourse lasting for. At least twenty thirty minutes in days past. But not this year. One More Time? Fleets please. obviously a crazy for us and that we have no intercourse at all with the manager of the players. John. He's pretty sharp for his age. What what what was he going for their? Well interaction conversation as the know. What's going to be said about that now? I don't who knows man. Who knows? It's just a gift dot in fairness. I mean, yeah. The phrasing of it, I know I understand wrong. But again, you got to connect the dots and know how it's going to be. I guess not definition is communication or dealings between individual saying that he was incorrect I've never used it as such i. mean he has an excellent vocabulary. I think we've heard that. Yeah. So I'm going to start using it around the office like I'll be back in five minutes I'm going to have some intercourse journal. Fleas God. No. No. Not Again. So I mean, let's just start just start putting that into our everyday. Vernacular and see how that goes. All right. You got the moment of the day over there. Yeah. Sure. I got moment of day for you.

Coming out of the game with the explicit. Saying. I can't say on yeah because I can't say on the. Go moment of the day, and if you think he's hard to understand on the air, you should try and decipher some of the text messages he sends sometimes. It's not even forgetful sentences like. There's one thought a time but. He says nine hundred texts for one cents. Oh, I do play golf with him though one time that I would like to have that experience.

August 28 Hour 2 Whats Next For The World of Sports

"Sports talk show this time. Is Interesting. I think by Monday we kind of get back into. Like XS and os I'm GONNA put a blog out about the broncos and I'll have that over the weekend. As far as my key positions that I'm looking at key storylines so have that available, but it just didn't see it didn't seem like. I. Don't I don't know word appropriate the white a right thing to say but. Isn't seem like at the last two or three days to get those questions. Let's listen Dixon wants me to read this. Okay. If Braun or the NBA or any sport wants to really make an impact, take out a thirty second commercial spot and say, Hey, to all my brothers and sisters out there all of all races peacefully do with the police ask you to do if you do that. You dramatically decrease the chances of something bad happening to is that so hard. It's not going to happen. I mean, they're not going to do that. Texture Brady. Do you agree that ninety five percent of these instances would not happen if they just comply I don't know about that step. Do I agree that? A lot of instances would not have escalated to the next level if they wouldn't have initially resisted arrest. Absolutely. That's the obvious answer. Yes. said. So why is that not one of the first things people make a huge deal about educate people I don't know that's that's the problem. Is, we're not you and I were just talking during the break Colfax. Willing we admit. I think all of us. I'm I'm more of a middle of the road guide. You should know that by now not very political. Really I'm not. But I think we all agree left right middle. That there are some problems in the world there's a problems in the country. and. We'd like to address it. We'd like cops that are. Bad To. Be. Dealt with. And I I've talked yet extra extra training that could be. Be Given to cops why not more trainings never gonNA hurt But I feel like there's another thing we can all agree on is that initially a resisting arrest? Is Not. Something we all agree on which is weird to me because that's the first thing man. I was like a huge disconnect between what the root of the problem is right and then how to fix that problem. Yeah I mean you're right if you can get some they say hey. Don't resist arrest. Start there start there we talked about George foy yesterday. And know what happened at the end. Terrible. Thing it's unclear. Exactly. It's unacceptable. But what got us there. was, he was resisting the arrest. They were trying to put him in the back of the police car and he would not go. Yeah. He's a big guy. So. That doesn't the end does not justify what the beginning portion of that was not at all as you said unacceptable I, like that word for it. But escalated because I mean if if he doesn't try to resist arrest, he's in the back seat of the police car and we are taking him to jail. And a story that's it. Nobody's talking about it. But he resisted. And then it pushed this cop to do the next thing and I think we all screamed that video and I think all of us may be tears in our eyes saying get off the guy. Get the hell off the guy. The that was awful and there's never an excuse for it. So, why can't we both agree end result in those two cases not ideal in the the latest one and enjoyed floyd unacceptable but the beginning. Also. Unacceptable. We have to stop that. We have to. and. I'm not saying that that always does the trick. I know there are cases where there are just some bad cops and doesn't matter I know that we know that. And we want to get rid of those cops cops want to make sure that that I what that looks like. Glitz, again to the table and have that discussion. new says the problem with boycotting. And not playing. Who are they hurting nobody in the arenas or stadiums? The owners aren't losing money. Also, what does one game do? Felt like was was a rain out and we'll play tomorrow. It is interesting again. Take a little break. We don't play today in or Wednesday in today and. Or whatever that was just yesterday or was it Wednesday to No I was it was Wednesday. Night the game fives, and then then it was Thursday that we got the rest of the Games were out and then baseball kind of sprinkled in a few. How about this story. If I can I can get this going here put Brodie, Van Rodin Wagon on. That's a weird story. I I got to try to get my head around that but met's GM was talking about the saying that Rob Manfred dozen get rob. Manford. The Commissioner of course wanted to. Basically just say let's take a one hour protest. So the mets Brodie van wagon calls comments about rob Manfred. unfounded. So here, here's the here's the here's what happened. New York mets general manager Brodie van Wagon on apologize Thursday night saying he falsely accused MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred proposing a plan that would have had players stage a one hour walkout during New, York scheduled home game against the marlins instead of not playing at all. His initial comments he commissioned, he criticized the commissioner said, he doesn't get it. They were caught on video and spread all over social media. He did come out and say no. So van Wagon on issued a statement saying he was actually mets chief open. No. That wasn't who said it was Chief Operating Officer Jeff Wilpon who proposed proposed the walkout idea and not Manfred. Okay. Manfred still getting the blame for it because he's just awful. they didn't even. Some teams played. Some didn't. Like the dodgers game before. And then suddenly the rockies game doesn't happen. I am willing to ask I, just want to ask the question do you think that these are helping? Do. You think that players that are millionaires and I'm just going to say the word were saying privileged about white privilege being let's we could all agree if you're a millionaire, you have privileges that the rest of us don't. That right. Now you might. You earned those through her absolutely I believe in hard work. But they earned those and now they have privileges so. That's where I think is as common folk. We just see players just all boom I'm not playing but still get paid. I think they still get paid I really don't know. But one game checks not gonNA. NOT GOING TO BE THE END OF THE WORLD Do they are they helping? Does this help. The loudest among the mostly it helps yes that we're paying attention now. Yeah. Everybody's paying attention. But I don't know that we're we're all saying agreeing on the same thing i. think we all I. Mean I saw a video come out. Four months ago. Two months go three musketeers always actors. Actors in black and white video. I don't know who it was the guy from breaking bad and a bunch of other ones. and. One of the one of the actresses said no longer will we turn our heads after seeing police brutality? Were we where you now like If. You saw a guy with his hands up. And not you know. Not Resisting arrest in the COP takes him down. I think I'm reporting that. Actually, had that situation happened to me before we have not to me I saw it happen. And we did we report you reported it. So you actually literally this is the. Guy was trying to arrest the guy in a in the guy was not resisting arrest. He was doing everything right was on the ground and I host I. DON'T KNOW IF SCENARIO I don't know if. I saw it across the street. It's like Whoa. What's going on over there right and there's cop to. Be going after the heck out of that's like Whoa, what is going and I. I. Don't think the guy was black. Yeah. WHO's a white guy I think he was okay. But either way either when you saw something fishy, you didn't guarantee this is what's happening but you called reported it said Hey that look a little excessive. Whatever's going on over just letting you guys know letting you guys know. These actors who said now we we're not gonNA do that anymore. We're not going to see that and then turn look the other way you didn't look the other way. No. And a lot of people don't do people sure a lot of people do. But. Yeah, they do start looking away when they get beat over the head saying that you're the problem year allowing this to happen when you have nothing to do with the situation at hand right that then you're forcing people to turn away because they're like I'm not going to pay attention to anything you have to say because you're throwing me under the bus now. I don't blame people now. I. I mean to some level to something. Sure. I get you again where you're coming from tough tough spot Oh, cool. New for doing fantasy football. We are doing fantasy football. We planned to do a draft at Windsor Mill Tavern I think we're GONNA do the Monday. Or Tuesday before the season starts. That's sorry it's the way it's going to be guys. It's what we were all waiting for answers still, and we were trying to get confirmation you want to register three people.

About what? What's the plan look like for the NBA. Call and register get you a going for fantasy. We're GONNA have a lot of fun Windsor, Mill Tower. We'll be right back. Party a northern Colorado's forks thirteen ten KFI. K. The block party Wednesdays from ten. PM. Co Now. Weekdays at four northern Colorado's voice got. Thirteen. Ten KFI, K.. Jeff Lender head men's basketball coach at the University of Wyoming Cowboys, and you're listening to the whole show on thirteen ten K.. Twenty minutes after the hour. Welcome back to the show. So. Whole show powered by PDC energy were live from the article special studios joining me on our first advantage hotline as my thinking Kerrigan Colfax my chair is literally sinking down as I'm talking Chris Dempsey joining me on the ever happened to you Chris Right in the middle of broadcast your chair just start sinking down. Apparently it's an issue. Sounds like his new chair. Kinda keeps things lively though because half the time my producer can't see me because I start you can just see my is over the top of the table. So it's Kinda. Fun. I tell Ya So a while ago a few years ago I used to work at the Fan in Denver and in the in the studio they had a couple of chairs that were very suspect for them away. So. I actually do I can't what size with the Share that won't stay up I. THINK WE NEED to call it out I think it radio stations it's just a it's just a rule. The chairs are terrible at radio stations because it's all you do is sit I mean that's what happens. Multiple people were they exactly Chris my friend. All right. So what's the latest with the nuggets with the NBA I know you tweeted out? There's a there's a joint statement coming out about what those next steps looked like. But as far as the the games themselves, what's the next? Kind of our next plan there for the playoffs. So. There's there's supposed to be games on Saturday Nobody knows the exact same wince when they are and who actually playing in them because you know the the weekend plays by different rules in terms of which teams, what the prime time slots are right. So on a Saturday you know you're you know you'll have it actually Saturday's Kinda it's similar to the rest of the week. Sunday primetime slots are in the afternoon. You know those are the ABC Games and on whatnot, and so I only say that because you know. I I we thought well, okay. The games that we're going to be played Wednesday we'll just be played Saturday games that were played Thursday. We'll just be played Sunday they'll. They'll just give back to every other day like that. but the Lakers are involved in the clippers are involved and you know the Toronto Raptors are involved in the Celtics and so I think that's probably a fair. That of maneuvering some of these teams in different slots that might be happening, which is why I don't think we've heard the time for any of these games or of the day you know off the times are are participants for any of these games and so you know that's still up in the air but but you know The one piece of information we do have is that these games are supposed to resume. Tomorrow we're talking to Chris Dempsey of altitude TV are nuggets insider also touch base on on the rest of the NBA now. Chris. You said it. So all the are we expecting all teams to resume play because I know at first when we first started this, it seemed like the to L. A. teams were out so. All teams in the mix. Yeah. Yeah. Yes. So yeah, it was the initial reports. In the clippers were. Were basically leaning toward or had voted to not play anymore and you know by the time the players had their meeting the next morning that have subsided you know, and then I think Ron came out and. Said something to the effect of you know you would like to continue playing. So or maybe it's to report that said that So yeah, the Lakers and the clippers. I. Don't think the NBA would would put on a full playoffs if teams. Major major teams to not be playing in the playoffs and you know quite honestly you know they're most people's favorites to win the title and you. You can't not. You can't have a playoff those type of teams in it. Sure. Everybody will be present when when the when players do Chris what kind of information do you have or I mean I know it was pretty tight. You know as far as the the meeting with with the NBA and it was it was closed. Do you have information on how that meeting? We obviously we have you shared the joint NBA an NBA. Statement about what the next steps are. So clearly, they found some kind of a plan, but it was that meeting contentious. Was it was it all pretty good or have you heard any insight there? For my understanding was it was you know I wouldn't take go so far as to say contentious but certainly, very honest you know very, very candid, very open You know these these players they're not holding back and you know this this is these are issues that are very close to their hearts and you know. when when they went down to play in Orlando one of the reasons why they felt. You know, okay to do that. was because the NBA. Agreed that they would not let social injustice use of fade away that they would help You know the players in whatever way that players felt that they needed You know to use Orlando in that bubble as a platform to continue to spread messages and and whatever else they needed to do. So I know that there were more than a few that thought you know things were fading away as the play offs. At the basketball games started to be played. In the playoffs started to you know getting into full swing and so You know they wanted to get back focus to that. And then also in that joint statement between the Players Association and the and the NBA you know there were some things that has to do with ownership and voting I. The the players wanted to talk owners I are my my understanding Lebron. was a very. Enormous voice and he was the last voice of to that the owners heard in in in that meeting and You know. So it's it'll be interesting to see what happens. So one of the things that they agreed on obviously was using. For the teams that do control their own arena to make it mandatory those arenas turn into polling places for people to go in and safely vote for the elections here. Coming up in a couple of months you know keeping a extra zing during basketball games That supports the the message of black lives matter and Equality. In. There are a couple of other agenda items as well. When I I know for the players it's You know I obviously at least to this point that those are satisfactory to them for them to then say, okay, we'll continue playing basketball and so. I think as with anything Brady you know it's it. It just continues to be ongoing right? You know you have to sit down you'll be zoom call in this time and you come up with a plan that at least initially works and then meet maybe lead to another plan after that or or more items, and so I think you know for for both of these parties it's It's certainly for the players You know this was a good first step yeah it will be interesting to see. What it all looks like to as you said, trying to come together and I think that's the thing we're all agreeing. There are some issues going on. We're all agreeing on that and wanting to see what those next steps. Ultimately looked like. That will be interesting. Of course, the play to Chris. I mean we stopped play. We have these big meetings and all that, and then we go right back into playing I. got to tell you that that. The might seem kind of awkward at first, maybe getting right back into it but maybe not. I think it might be I think it might be a little bit i. think that's another reason why we're taking a couple of days before a game. I mean if? You remember near the first reports were, hey, the hopes that games we'll start on Friday well, I mean. That might be a little fast to get back to that. After you know the the enormity of of of of team boycotting and then a league having to postpone games, and then you know for the for the very real and social reasons why you couldn't just jump right back into basketball. Now, those teams all practice, every single team in the NBA. And so you know they are back on the court in You know at least in that capacity, and then there were supposed to be press conference today all the that every team in the NBA canceled and said that they wanted that statement. Do I'm out I of before they started talking. About anything that. You know you know might not even have to do. With with social justice and and back to the game. So we haven't even heard from any of these players coaches and we won't hear from any of them until at least tomorrow. So that'll be a first window into you know what how they're how these things are being sorted through in their minds and you know and what they feel like needs to happen next town. Yeah certainly. Certainly interesting times to try to navigate through for the past six months. Chris and I know you guys on the on the altitude side of things I mean every single day it's been something new trying to. Work around. So I'm very curious to see how this all works out. Chris. What can you tell us about Michael Jordan? All the reports last night that he was going to be a key liaison between owners and players is is that to mean that maybe initially players and owners weren't having great conversations and they kind of wanted Michael Jordan to be that go-between or did it just kind of work out that way where we want Jordan be that? That spokesperson so to speak. Yeah. It was very interesting, but you don't my. In a very unique position right now he is. He is an owner and he is a black man and you know and. I think you know when you think about it it's She said because he bridges both sides there. You know it's it's easier for him to go to the players and say, okay, listen Mrs. What's this is what it feels like to be an owner. This is what they're the issues that they're sorting through they WANNA help but this is this is this is their side of the coin but at the same time, go back to the owners and say well, listen right you know AM obviously I'm one of you as well but I'm also a black man in this America, and this is why they are feeling the way they're feeling and cow where can we? I think he is quite frankly a perfect individual to just everybody see the other side and help everybody get on the same page and sometimes I don't. You know if you don't have a person like that it just takes a little bit longer because you know maybe there's tension maybe there's not quite understanding maybe there's a voice that maybe some people don't WanNA listen to some people do want to listen to and you have all these extra little variables that make it a lot more difficult to get to. The ground and so with Michael Jordan being there he just makes that process a whole heck of a lot faster. Because, he can speak with credibility to both sides. Yeah. No no question about I was kind of joking yesterday. Michael Jordan did it in June with what back with the documentary or before the summer started kind of helping the NBA out again, and then here we go. So Jordan's keep doing this man forever. I think he always going to be such a huge part of of all things going forward. Well and I think Michael Jordan. This is also kind of A. Interesting moment in his life because you know one of the things that we witnessed in the last dance was obviously there was a lot of controversy surrounding. Michael. Jordan in terms of how socially like how much he would speak out on this kind of stuff and how much he would you know and so you know. So now we're in this area where she is not only having to. I. Mean. We haven't heard from him publicly, but I'm sure we will. But he is basically being the mediator and you know I in some very. Important in big negotiations and conversations and so. I you know I think it's I. Think it's very very. I think it's very, very interesting. You know and but I think he's a he's a real good individual to be You know. So to be in this role yeah no question about Chris. Well, we'll we'll be following you guys along certainly following you on twitter to to see what the latest looks like as far as scheduling goes and always appreciate your time and I know things are absolutely crazy as far as a different meetings you guys are having. So we do appreciate your side Stephan to take some time with us. No problem at all any time, and we'll talk to you soon. That's Chris Dempsey of altitude TV, nuggets insider NBA, insider getting information there, and I think that's true. That's a great connection to I think Jordan he he's a role model for these players and they all love and respect the guy. So so it only makes sense. But we'll see I mean. How how are you GonNa view the play offs like we were going hot and heavy man it was. So it was entertaining as hell I was watching I don't know the ratings were kind of weird. I don't know if that's people getting burnt out on the messages or people getting Back into the Groove, the fact of the Games Ron during the day, they were come with NHL and Major League Baseball. could be a mixture of things. But ultimately I you know I don't know I'm not sure you you got to imagine. There's going to be hit another hit here as far as ratings go and because I think that. Four years ago, we didn't pull politics and sports man come on. It's here and it's not just in sports. It is sports and don't know where we go from here on that side of it, but maybe we get back in a couple of days and. We get back into basketball and I'm not saying that that doesn't mean you're ignoring things that happen I think we still all agree. That something needs to happen with bad cops and police reform and all that night. I do not subscribe to the defunding police I'll tell you that. But I think we all agree that. We need to have conversations and fix some problems we do. We need to do that and I think we're on our way to that but I still ask that question of did did postponing games and canceled games did that help how do you find a way to find a hinge moment and I've always talked about this on the show Colfax how do we find a way to connect with each other? Because, I think the protests during yesterday and Wednesday. I don't think those are hinge moments I think they. I think the people that already agreed with everything that a lot of these players have been saying a lot of these leagues collectively of saying been saying. They already agreed they were like, okay. Yeah. You're making a statement. There we go, and then the people that were having a hard time agreeing with everything that a lot of these players were saying and leagues. I. Think we pushed them further away. So, how do we? How do we find those hinge moments? To ask the question did the canceling games of that help is that helping Now the NBA it's getting together to do this but. They have so much power already could the players have not had these conversations without cancelling I because they not could have not had a meeting I. I know they're playing every single night because they have not figured out a time to all sit down and say, Hey, this happened we wanNA talk. But no instead, we had to do the all were postponed the Games again I, don't know what the right answer is but I certainly I certainly wonder how it all is going to affect. This sing overall. I avenged text line three, one, nine, nine, six, three, one, nine, six. Yet, new shared the ESPN's website as far as the schedule of games but I don't know if that's accurate at the stage, I, think they just have it up I. I saw something today that. had a time for Lakers. Blazers and then they edit it it was up and then it was gone. It was just so I don't know I. Guess We'll pay attention to those websites. I event is text line three, one, nine, nine, six, three, one. Nine, nine six. Let's see Dixon here. Have have all the grade school teachers in the country. Go on strike in quit their job and protest. If you really want to initiate change nobody really cares if millionaires don't play games, I do think that. Unfortunately. I've talked a lot about actors in Hollywood and stuff. And I'm not saying all actors in Hollywood are terrible. But when this corona virus stuff hit, he had so many different actors saying stay home stay home. They sang the song imagine together like why why that song. We're like, maybe this is the end of days and you're singing imagine there's no heaven. Okay. Thank celebrities and then celebrities telling you hey, stay home. But I'm like in this home and you're like in Disney world resort dude I mean that's you get to stay there and that's cool. You have a basketball court jack black's telling everybody to wear masks and do the right thing and not go anywhere from his basketball court that has a pool next to it. There you have it all you have Rhonda Rousey is telling us don't storm the stores and stock up you need to be stocking up and she's going through she has three chicken farms and she's got these titanium tanks full of water. She has three freezer's full of meat and she's like come prepared. Don't be an idiot and gone so we can't afford all. Of that WHO has three freezers we got like the one abundant below the fridge and you could barely fit anything in there and you try to shut it it. It's like you who would you put a body in there look at my wife a what the hell is any here, and then you actually start sorting through. Yeah we need all that stuff apparently. But. Athletes unfortunately now, it is getting to that point 'cause it's like millionaire stopped playing a game that they're already they're being paid for and saying we need change and then they're asking billionaires just write checks throw more money around it. I'm sorry but it it does fall on deaf ears sometimes. I. Mean Actors telling you stay home athletes telling you saying that go vote like we already do those things were stay at home we're voting you. I mean, I am not everybody's voting. Okay. Sure. But that message is for the ones that aren't voting. Okay fine. But did you have to postpone an entire day and a half of games? To. To do that. I mean I. It's I I say this Colfax and I. Feel I feel like we're living in an episode of South Park. We were in giant episode of South Park. And it just it just keeps going. You know baseball's idea to like. The with with the whole oil wasn't rob Manfred a gas I don't know but wagon. And then talking about this situation where maybe we'll just. Who just postponed for an hour? Data let's get him that'll show him. I mean like Dat makes less sense than cancelling the game like that makes way less sense. That it was Jeff Wilpon who had said Hey, maybe we just. What if we just protests for an hour we boycott for an hour and then we go back out there. By by racism. That that'll show them. Play. I mean. I'm not GonNa Fault that guy for. In my mind that someone trying to meet in the middle and be like, all right. You guys can have your thing and we can solve a games. People were going to do nothing but a day isn't going to do anything either I. Agree. So he's just like well, I think the. Day. I mean, they'd does Napster's. Just, play baseball. So his ideas like what can we play baseball? If we do this where you still play baseball I'm not GONNA fault the guy for that I just think it's weird. It's it's all. I mean. It's just like we're throwing crap up in the air and and I. I get it because we're all like we're all afraid to say the wrong thing we're all we're also afraid to lose money because these leagues won't happen if we do and so I get I get it but. To me it's like it's a South Park episode. It's like what if we just protest a little bit? And then still play baseball just a little protests. That way we don't piss off everybody, but it's just a little protesting. See I. think that's the lose lose because then you're like the ones that are protesting like it's not enough and then the ones that are protesting like it's too much. So just go on with your league and say we're playing. Because we feel like we're unifying people by playing sports. That's the message I would have stopped. Forty one minutes after the hour, let's get the latest on the local sports flash. Party in northern Colorado's force thirteen ten K F. K the block party Wednesdays from four to ten PM. Join US Monday to jump start your day with news weather traffic and the weekends latest round of political hijinks on mornings with Kale, sixty, nine, thirteen, ten KFI. Forty five minutes after the hour we're almost done here today. Texter says a week for an hour. You'RE GONNA care that they postponed games. Probably not I would probably going to like. We'll remember it. But it's such a weird season. Anyway, it's just part of the weirdness of it. Is there anything to be said to about you know. The past of these sports they are, they are good for you. Whatever it is you enjoy As an entertainment. Probably listening to the show. And soon yeah I I. I know it's kind of been fairly political today I get and not necessarily I'm not supposed to say political that's supposed to say that. The protests are not political fact. Telling someone to vote is not political apparently. That's What it is voting. In Poland okay. But having your entertainment, having your sources to get away whatever that is getting out riding your motorcycle, going go and swim and play playing, Golf. Watching, watching basketball watching a movie. Watching a comedian. Those are those are past that are that are healthy for us? You know pray Lewis said it. It was just for so many reasons awkward he said. If we don't ten years ago, and if we don't have the NFL when they were about to lockout, we don't have the NFL. There's GonNa be more murder. Again. I see where he was going with that I see it I do where it's like we don't if we don't have our pastimes. We're all just honed in on twitter and facebook and we all hate each other. We gotta have our pastimes. Luxury I get it. Okay. Fine. We got to have our things we've got to have are are are things that take us away for a moment that doesn't mean you don't Care Kyle freeland saying he will he go four hours away was happy place and play baseball. It's not a bad thing to say it's the right thing to say. Even the the biggest activists out there has something that they do they should. When do you think that wouldn't that suck to be a politician that's all you do every day all day just twenty, four, seven you're just nonstop in it. You gotTa have breaks. That's why I Care Obama or trump people that get pissed that they that they play golf it just makes me so mad I. Don't Obama got it to. He was on ESPN BRACKET CHALLENGE BYARD, Gab to do. TRUMP'S GOLFING You can't be in it all the time every second of every day it's important our pastimes and. It was one day we'll get through it. And we were all hopeful that it just wouldn't last for a while but. We just spent six five, five months without anything. And then suddenly like that, we rip it away. And I get it through a bigger issues. Forty eight minutes after the hour we'll wrap up on the other side says the whole show are live from the article? Special Studios Shadow. To Auto Taylor great people there men they just they know how to do it. They know how to get the job done. Their techs are like they can work on. I'm serious I talked to bring yesterday I don't know anything about cars but. They demand excellence out of their mechanics forty eight minutes after the hour the whole show power by theaters. Goes home for the rocky is thirteen ten KFI. Dan Patrick the whole show in Colin, coward on Northern Colorado's. Thirteen ten KFI, K.. This is Matt Ray of America's first news. You're listening to the whole show with my Guy Brady whole. News do we meant? Big. Moles Thanksgiving football start. Clemson will have nineteen thousand fan capacity for Games. So I mean. Or Sandy UNC is GonNa Forego fans the start of football on fall sports not this UNC. The other UNC. Be, careful with that. I didn't I still haven't got to this one yet Colefax but I'm a hick briefly. I can't get to the story. This is the story that cannot I can't about. Lisa and Ed McCaffrey parents to of to to Michigan quarterback deal McCaffrey they pin letter in support of playing they wrote a letter To to to Michigan Fan to the college and such about playing and the letter you know I'll read briefly here to the University of Michigan the College Athletic Academy Community Response. To the current state of affairs surrounding the possible twenty big ten college football season. We the parents of the University of Michigan Football Player compelled to express their support for our child and for Michigan Wolverines coaching staff program at it goes and basically insisting that we play I just thought it was interesting Colfax. You know I didn't see a letter. From coach McCaffrey about the Big Sky Conference. He coaches in that big sky. Conference I thought that was interesting You boys play for different teams. I get that but wonder why there wasn't another leading again maybe it was because it was already done. But it was basically saying, Hey, don't cancel. I. Would you know I thought maybe maybe a letter there by the scion understand it but we also want to express kind of our concerns with that and we'd like to mention they're asking for information some of these letters to in this one specifically that don't but I thought that was interesting. All right that's going to do it for us. We'll be back at it on a Monday. We will have games to talk about we'll get back into it. See if the nuggets can come out of this thing. Utah we're snapping out of thanks have a good week in northern Colorado Dude. Do good things do the right things could night northern Colorado?

All he's doing is acquiring l. f. and take it and run with it. What was the date of the council. Mine was june twenty. These mets fans the depress group. I have no place for no room for these so you've got out three weeks before the all-star break they were these can go okay so what are you know and then if they lose one they cancelled their they had an eight percent chance of making the playoffs bottomed out three and in twelve days now thirteen days. They've increased thirty two and a half percent. You're giving back yes. He can't once you're constantly done. There's no room. This ship is gone the he's climbing up the side in the face of the franchise as the face of the fan base. I have no choice but to play so you can't jumped ship back now on everyone. Everyone me neither. I don't job yep. <hes> do your thing dave. I'm actually talked to my friend jeff this game and see if we can sit with them for an upcoming mets baseball game you you lied that you lead this team to the canyon of heroes mark walberg mark mark wahlberg <hes>. He's caught on film. He's opening a wall burgers in dallas so he's like. I may have to change by blue. I don't have one at gillette. I'm excited that you know. I get to open up all burghers in dallas my first one in texas. I don't have one to let i got one of my hand. I go taxes. That's a lot of love. I'm gonna have to change my blue. I'll walberg s- a fucking joke to the lab bull about blue segment this guy blue walberg. He blew it. Make sure you you don't blow it and get yourself a little that blue so he he said <hes> you may roof cowboys. He was kinda tongue-in-cheek but this is the same guy when he really louis left. The super bowl at halftime of the of the falcons game because as kids was sick yeah right do this because we're down twenty-eight three. I was saying what was his reasoning for changing to roof and the <hes> he's also he's been hillary but at the same time you know you've always said you'll root for anybody who who says they like barstool right alike anybody world for him for the cowboys. The thing is the wall burgers. I'm a patriot fan. I don't care what anybody does. I'm always going to root for patriots. You're reading butter right so like what what if it was something a little like well he he he kind of being a boston guy fake water respects real but fake like his brother is a diehard celtics fan <unk>. I'll give him that. He's at every game donny this guy. I've seen him with more hats on jersey. The leaving the super bowl i don't trust and then he'd do the <hes> documentary with element isn't like instrumental in that walberg interview right so like twenty three twenty twenty second timeouts so he. He's a real boston guy because he's from there but he's fake because he wears hats of other places yeah. I don't think hollywood to kind of like yeah. I mean he'll do this who what real personally on a cowboys fan now who leaves the super bowl at half time like he's they're big moments not little he also oh. I'm not big fan of his past. You can have that take a twenty in a social situation that works every time every fucking time. He wanted to produce the elements showtime feature but wasn't allowed to got mad about the interview. There was some footage of him like on the set or whatever whatever either way i was in that he could have stopped nine eleven. I love people said. I stole all that show you were oh. I heard you say that now. I said a lot of people were hurt. Me reiterating what a lot of people said what who else <hes> on our best friend <hes> was the narrator there <hes> rappaport <hes>. Did he think he stole the show. Bill burr was in it. <hes> who's who's radios. He was in edmonds. People people find the fucking tax all right <hes> so avery came in to interview. Oh rangers intern yeah well. I'm looking. I like frankie's replacements. Not one. He's out stunt every left me a letter on my desk. That's all what happened. I am born for this will never cower from the bright lights. This is my destiny. This is my calling left me. Reduce cheeses with people now like big thing but stash. Who is this kid. Bring him in here so he came in. We went before on radio. Going why would remember. I was interviewing irving last year and i was a commentator. Quinnipiac university and gas took me up and he did like a call yeah. We both my calls on radio. Oh oh you're still in school. I still am but i'll be commuting here. Draw out what i drop. That's a big call. I mean if that i met i was part of the team portnoy brand. I definitely consider this interviews done all right frankie take him back and and i mean i'm not looking for like you're still in school. What do you mean you're not my guy. So you get a no brainer. Go mad fucking shit. I'll keep a kiefer's is keep his jesus but are you be my guy. If you're in school he does not make decisions. I had this problem with him. He walked around the winnipeg jets at and he wants to be the rangers guy and i said how can you offer jet-setting no loyalty so now he shows banal rangers the very day because i told them what to wear to work. He's got a great if he said yes. I drop out hydromorphone. It was fun. Honestly that's such a big move to y'all dropout to do right now. I'd find him as i mean like he's like what what did he think you'll consider. It offers gone and like so you want this ready for. I go but he's in school but you're in school. Are you going to drop out is like if you offered me a position position. I'd consider it no no he had to say yeah. I'm in instantly and he would have the job and now he's out heard and maybe can clear this up for me. He walked out and talk shit to you frankie as if he like nailed it said like i hate to see that frankie and yeah. I don't think he realized that he bought. I got an ongoing robbery with this shit head. He's a rangers fan. He walks in here wearing his rangers gear up. I mean the first eight walked into your war winnipeg. The big jets out like i thought you were the rangers. Guy thought you're gonna rob herman. He's like well. We'll have ranger stuff at home so now every day. He walks in and wears rangers socks. Whatever thinks about me when he gets dressed but number two is that he walked out of here knowing that we have this robbery walked out of that interview that went horribly with dave and he goes bet you hate to see that frank and i said well from what i i talked to clip but it was like it was it was mortifying. He was like well. This interviews over the answer has to automatically be yes like goodbye walked auster outlays. I don't know how he thought he could get the job if he was in school. I'm not you're leaving because you have one of the thing here with four point like what was that fucking mesnier in school he <hes> he's walking around and saying that he just he's gonna drop out of school in like regardless now like he thought like in late yeah drops out over there here he is. Here's the oddly looks like the like the rival version of me too generic booking human beings on the radio. I don't think he's just talking so what they hate to see that to frankie well it. Just i think it went horrible. Oh you were saying like usually very so. I think the people that were over here that we also you said we wipe. You're like what the fuck is. You hate to see that sarcastically basically to someone talking ship literally bomb interview yeah. I guess so but that's not what we do that right well. My question is and it's too late so don't drop ah school now. How did you think you could ever be in contention with job without dropping out. I i honestly don't know i thought it was just. I just got flustered assert. I you asked the question and i've never really been asked that question before but it almost seemed like you wrote. That letter is like this is it. This is what i was born to do like obviously obviously you can't be in school and do that job right. No i agree with you. I love what i do here and i think i kind of got a little bit overwhelmed and so question if he walked in and said they dropped out of school this morning. I want to be your guy. I think i would have given. I think ya'll drop school right now. I want to give him the job base. Do you know join any else he does or just based on that just dropped out of school. Yeah you're right the letter. I liked the cheeses. I used to ask you. I was the rivalry and leaves like facts so i liked guard all right. Who's this fucking kid. I'm a huge day of guy. I've always been. I think eventually maybe down the road. Maybe yes maybe how many years ago i left. I got one more year. I mean there's a big ass lasko school but again. It's a no brainer. <hes> fox fox it hank dropped out of the school. That didn't exist exists that he put on that that was an all time hang moment one is resume was a school that has been out of business for ten years and we looked at up. It's like hey. This hasn't been around for decades. He's like why it works. Though i mean definitely clarify i did not think it will okay that makes us clearly <hes> uh of those are still guileless still guileless going to find the guy <hes>. It's crazy when you think about it. It should be like you know. There should be someone here outside this fucking building every single take back. He may get a shot looking. I mean i don't wanna talk spider out like he doesn't do video. Does he feel like my videos aren't like just one camera yeah <hes> yeah. We'll see also when you have a new guy. Will you just continue when you say all right frankie i don't i don't i don't know no you gotta come up with another name or whoever's name isn't and that's more like all right avery thanks brandon. Just call the guy's real name by the real name what has been putting you in a body. I said just call the new guy by his name. Did you just say that one's for free also with the twenty seconds so so basically if i hire hubs you just go all right hubs because that's his name thanks. I didn't think of that. That's right. They're culpable by their name.

We're gonna be on location for barstool radio for the next couple of days. Obviously barstool advisors is cooking throughout the week throughout the season. So a lot going on here at barstool. Tommy smokes is still in his barstool advisors. Get up. I don't know why. So I I haven't really changed out of it. But it's comfortable. Hey looks looking sharp sharp. I mean, absolutely heinous. So this is one of those weeks where you're gonna see barstool shine. You got corrobos on the in the spotlight for this week. We've got T shirts on deck. You're going to be seeing barstool merch everywhere. You're going to be seen barstool blog barstool podcast in everybody's face as we have a Boston LA showdown. Which is I mean, that's I guess that's what you look for. If you're a sports fan, except if you're a Yankee fan, you're absolutely horrible. Well, I'm I guess I'm glad it's the dodgers. I think that I have a chance I've ever series before the Red Sox series. I've come into myself. I talked to lose obviously Enke's on the Astros though, like the World Series last week. It was like, that's it. They've won. I'm gonna let myself go trick. Now, you're going around convince myself the dodgers one six you'll only thing is we don't have anybody to represent the dodgers. There's no fan. They're all fake and phony mic, Nick insider. The barstool L A experiment. If you were around for that, you remember how much of a disaster that was I wonder sometimes I sometimes I feel like borstal LA was a victim of circumstance how long ago was this twenty thirteen travel. I know very little about the LA LA. We we had you know, it's hard because barstool is used in the city model. Everybody was like diehards of that city. Not just the sports. It's like you lived at like, I was the cynical folk and New Yorker and Dan's like, the nice guy from the midwest and presents the obnoxious Boston winner, and an LA just doesn't have that identity. And the only thing that identity is that everybody's like transplants. So we we hired a transplant. He was a guy from Indianapolis. And that's what's funny too. Is that Indian that up beings? So he he moved out to LA to become a stand up comic. He he had a parody Twitter account. Coach Kent Murphy, which is like a very funny baseball Harto type of account. So he's a funny cat. It was. But who is the other one? It was two guys. It was Nick insider and someone else. Us and that guy was particularly not great at this. So there was two of them that were running Barsala. Yes. And was there like an office or? Nobody everybody's working at home. And it was it was it was not the best can't find the other guy. Did they just was it just articles? They did a little bit of videos. Big cat made went out there. And they made a. Fans. Fancy was bumping at the time. And they did a music video where him and Nick insider, we're like smoking cigs taking their shirts off and shake in it, very funny. He's a funny guy. It was just like the wrong time at that point. It was so hard to crack into like the rotation. It was like people were so set in their ways. Now, I think that everybody's much more used to expansion. So they're used to the idea of new people, and like would have probably just been more inviting because he did have his own series funny. They did have their own. So they were telling you know, what what is Email thing. Something Email with like, I feel like smitty or meat may have been involved the guests that s with the like who emails I. There was there was a couple of classic moments where we had a guest that ad you remember, you do you don't get that has. So like every day at noon. Noon ish, we used to put up a picture of some celebrity and then eventually ended up being like Instagram girls because we weren't allowed to post libraries anymore. We kept getting sued. But in the beginning, we would go to the gossip sites you would pick like the best. But and it was like a soon as you found one you sent an Email to the whole chain. I call, you know, whoever at the time, it'd be like Kay back and say, you know, and it was first come first serve whoever emailed. I got it. And then you know, you had to find a new one. And there was like a particularly great ass on the internet that day. And I think Dave like put it up, despite the fact that I think smitty had called it. And Nick insider was one against Dave or. Yes. So so it was like they I guess they either emailed at the exact same time or something he tried to pull this up. I would love to go through the. Deleted. This on this one. I'm sure some of the people listening out there. Some of the maybe my guy CT do all we'll have the link to if you're on Twitter, bro. Sending my way. It was the the great guests that ask debate of Barcelo sports. And it was like who emailed. I I think I think Dave replied to me. But didn't reply to all his Email came in to me. I but it went, but but the person who replied all was was late. So it was like does Dave credit for being first or does he not because he didn't reply all, and we had this everybody had to cast a vote, and and it came down to Nick insider, the new guy, and he went against Dave. And it was like some supreme court ruling where it was like are you fucking crazy or it against the vase? So that there was some funny moments with them. And I remember I mean, there was so many asses back then it was just a parade of mental acid, and it it was it must have been a good one. But that also a little known fact. Barstool L A was I believe the inspiration for mill. Moore's first cartoon, he emailed me, a YouTube being like, you know, this is this is my idea for a weekly Barcelo cartoon, and it was about like the expansion. And I remember watching it being like, this is the funniest thing I've ever seen these jokes are credible. So that's where I pass it along like we have to hire this guy. So butterfly effect. Who knows if Nick thrived or didn't thrive? Maybe mill more wouldn't be here. So shout out to mill more today. Made one of my wildest dreams. Come true. What's that for you here for that whole situation? So the so Ellie Jordan spotted the broad city girls down the street film, and they ran down to see them. So I ran down after they did too low participating. Oh, yeah. Me too. I found what happened. So it was like every day. There was a guest this Email chain and mo- accidentally sent it to a wrong Dave account. He sent it to Dave what solar something so in in the real Email chain Dave put. This is your Brooke transcribe, Lisa Opie mo-, call to earlier blue bikini. Dave when I don't have any Email from you mo- whoop. Sent it to the wrong. Dave, dave. Then I got it. Right. That's a non call big cat. I think we should make Nick decide really put him on the spot here. Nick sense question marks mo-, no way, everybody else. Get the ball the Email. I sent it above a goes back and forth. Goes Nick maker ruling. Nick fuck I missed this in the chain. I gotta go with MAURICE on this one. I saw Imos more. Dave came in sorry press. You said, wow, you're probably fired. All that ruling. That's funny that me and Dan, just right? And there you're fired. That was I mean, that's funny. It's the it's the wrong because they don't know why this Knicks call anyway could catch drink to blogs or male. I'm the one driving the Porsche. The funny like the thought of it's a three way like argument between Dave MO and Nick inside a couple of the ghosts of Christmas past there. Yeah. That is. Yeah. That was a different time. And and I I don't know if we could ever I would love to you know, the goal is fucking global domination and eventually own the moon. I think the only way to do L A would be to get like a like enter- entertainment skewed. It's gotta be like a surfer, bro. Covers like Hollywood. We have we're on patrol which is for like, the west sort of social media stuff. It's not like a a or. I mean, I'm sure there's like a couple like true blue LA fans. I mean, especially now with two NFL teams there. Yeah. That's the thing. Those are still so new that even to have someone represent them. It's going to take a few years before I wanted to be taken if you're like, oh like, you know, an LA Rams fan. It's like, okay. No. You're not you know, what I mean. Locks. You know what I mean? Maybe they're older and they were fans while when they were there before they're not going to be a blogger here. The it would be great to have like an L A rep for for this World Series. But we were just reminiscent. Do you remember? The great guests that asked debate with Nick insider, you so we we we had the old the old guests that asks chain mo-, call the girl put the wrong, Dave on the Email and you had called her after him. And he you were like, well, it's my girl then you never emailed the whole chain. You never. Nick, Nick insider, we made Nick insider cast the final vote, and he went to eat when against you because we were just saying how we had a true L A rep the series. It would be great. He was not a true L A. I don't think there ever could be one of Indiana, right? Which is actually funny how much Indianapolis ended up being a part of our our whole story here. But so with Boston LA, I was just saying how big of a week. It is you'll be out. There electric chairs borstal radio back on your old stomping grounds for what? I think is almost guaranteed to be another Boston championship. Yeah. You know? The odds don't reflect that. But their minds wants sixty. They are playing great. There's been some time off or both teams Kershaw of Asli. As know he gets a lot of respect. We'll see the electric chair which we're doing from Landsdowne pub. So I don't know if you've already said we're doing barstool radio live tomorrow Wednesday me carabiners coli vital Bergh four to six Landsdowne pub, and there were doing the electric chair for the games at Lansdowne pup as well, which we've never done so that should be pretty cool like alive bar audience, basically reacting. So it's going to be those are always great moments. Like when we when we did our into electric chairs, but for the gold, medal hockey games. We'll cameras rolling and the reactions from the bar when this great moment. Always awesome. So should be interesting. It's a big week big week for. Red Sox everything because we've got the college football. We're going to Florida Georgia, which is a huge game. So a lot of in that'll be in the middle of games for game five just law ship as this weekend. You guys are doing that allow and then also when is rough and rowdy Jackson tonight. That's this big are a. Yeah. So that's it's quite a lot of stuff going on this week big week the Vegas odds to me. I feel like are are always they're not always Foley, Representative of the sport involved. You know what I mean? Right. Always where the money is going and the teams like entice and pretty good. Yeah. Based on probably the best that I've often said they're the best of what they do than anybody else. When the Jeff Probst. Two to one. They're like, I don't know like seventeen games better than the dodgers and the regular season. They would've alone there fucking doors off if they played in the same divisions dodgers like support out there. I don't. I really don't think that has anything to do with it the line. You mean, you think it's just straight like baseball. There's nothing about where the money is not in the dodgers because I feel like after you roll through one hundred wind Yankee team and one hundred and three win Astros team because east coast money always like it's down to one fifty fan. Lord now, actually. Yeah. It'll be interesting prediction was the Red Sox and five but what is like game. I'd have to look right now a pick em for game one with sale verse. I didn't see a line when I looked before. I mean Kershaw is obviously the extra for them. You get good Kershaw and he can kind of carry a series. But the on that I don't see anybody who stands out over the Red Sox. No. And the way that we dismantled the Yankees and mantis. The Astros or a much better one fifty tomorrow night. So yes, that's Representative of the series. That's crazy. Yeah. I don't know. I mean, are you not betting heavy on the Red Sox? I tried to they're going to limit five thousand dollar limit on it was that way because sometimes series make a change it. I probably could get pretty good odds on. I mean, that's chump change for David page. We are now. So it's like I've been worth betting. Literally what an asshole. But. Yeah, it's a big week World Series week. Never ends. It's always knock complain. But I'll you guys make fun of the final Burg. It's literally, you know might tanks on eat with sleep. I got good nicely made fun of the Hilbert was I'm less like that. It's just never ending. Michigan added big. I mean, if you if you're running on no sleep already week hasn't even started. No, better buckling, the Celtics Nixon Saturday night. That was good. I everything I go to we win. It's crazy. T shirts are the name of the game right now. Or you have a T shirt idea. Send it our way if we put it into production. You get thousand bucks cash straight up. You'll I mean, that's and I know I'm going to have let me just preface all the idiots out there. If you send me like Titletown, right? And we're already. Yeah. People got to be something unique. And you gotta have the artwork. And all that just like you can't give us an idea. Right. Like like when gay Pat said beat LA, right? It's like well. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. Which we actually did end up doing though because we're going to try to ship it out in time. They're up there. If you buy one that you're not promoting it, right? Because we're not going to get there in time. So. Especially if it goes five, so, but you the LA threat socks when I just don't think people necessarily care about the dodgers. Like, it's like. It's not like I'm worried about the I mean the dodgers. I mean. You have any rivalry with National League team? I mean, we got a lot of good ideas. Cooking. Yeah. We do Nardini came to file burns. She said one of Pfizer's ideas was she thinks the greatest jerk parcel will ever have created. I know she's talking about I gotta get on that. It's a very difficult. It is. But it's a good idea. I mean, a lot of them are flowing the shirts you all posted. Yeah. There was one on. I did a blog. I tried to dig up like some of the old shirts who was one. I did not know we even sold at all. I couldn't believe it. I would've never never remembered it in a million years. There's a million more tried to find and they just don't exist the copyright internet. It that's the only ones I could find like it's so hard you type in the name of one for whatever reason the one I thought was funny est. Don't hassle the castle. This don't hassle the Hoff cross out Hof Newcastle. The mighty mouse wants sucked mighty muddy Monod chicken chicken. We'll know fatty great pajamas wife bought like ten in the mighty MO. So somebody liked it you ever think about doing a throwback shirt of the day. I know we do share the month. But if you put those on so some of those would be like, I mean, you have those all over again. The best example is always ball don't lie like that. The worst shirt ever until it became the best ever because it was worshipped feel like if you wear that. Now, it's like a badge of honor. He won that back on sale. I think people by like all night forgot to put it on there. Because I got a late. Eight, but I have the picture somewhere. We did like the cartoon like dream team style with Boston on duck boat. And we're like, oh, it'll be cool. It is now retro like, you know, how dream team if you have the original cue the duck boats. It's a retro t we've been doing it so long that it's like, you know, it all came back into style. It it's like that's also part of like the what fashion is like right now. You know, Joan a hill wearing one of those stoop odor. It's everyone was crazy for it's like we've been making those forever. Yeah. I said that I where is the the q. The duck boats cartoon has got like Dave Roberts sliding under the duck boat like manny's, don't worry be Manny, how shirt that's all keep the Blount rolling. That's there are some good ones and some bad ones blood. But even the bad ones are like the good ones. Mr. July the Iran short, Mr. July with his phases money on his hat on the nape. Anybody by that that and a Royd it does. It doesn't look like they Royd probably got sales more. Whatever killer thousands of them in the need for sheet. I was looking all over for need for sheet. I couldn't find it need for sheet in Royd were the two that day porn like went all in on. All these sell million boxes upon boxes just in cell. I mean, Paul don't lie. I don't know what. It was surprising ball. Don't lies like the greatest. I mean that is one of the best catch in all sports and the little bald spot on the basketball, the grey spot is the attention to detail the I mean, I I went all in on Rasheed Wallace for some reason, Rasheed walk, right? I mean, people love people say ball don't lie to this debt. Right. But I I did too. I did that Angie sheet. But. But how about I did not? I this is one I did not remember not up or move on from Bob Kraft. Remember that it's all crap on the back must have set. It. I wonder if you Google humble pie was a great one. I remember that. Bell checks of that. I have a shirt at my house that I couldn't find like my favorite Belcher quarter of all time. It's like for all wrong together. We can still be right? We put that on the shirt not up. Oh my God. Mr. Mr. July is so bad. This cartoon of his face. Never in a million years. Would I guess that that is booking? If you didn't if you did not write a ride below that. I'll send it to you. Tommy, this is honestly, and we'll put it up on barstool radio on Twitter. I mean this picture looks absolutely nothing like Alex Rodriguez. You just have to put a rod underneath it. That's the only way anybody would still the nut up or move on. I just Google at that is the video we had he says it, right? Oh, what does this girlfriend that makes sense? Okay. What is I eat it from home upon member? Pussy in that video. We broke we broke the I'll rarely hear that. Oh, yeah. That was us. I eat it humble pie was a Belcher, quote on believe, I think that was to keep people. Boy a slight resemblance talk. I see what they're going Hami that looks like a Joe glass from fucking like Mike Tyson punchout, not look like Alex Rodriguez it off you should have made the lips blue, wait. That's really funny thinking when I saw that video that it was that was years ago that was like two thousand that's back got no respect you still don't get an outback. Nobody would have mentioned that we who broke it the the gray shirt that got ripped from us people stole it everywhere. Credit while I guess without crediting. Yeah. Totally always there's quite a few things out there that have been stolen from us like that. Yeah. So in two thousand and seven. Here's here's the Bill is focused on perfection, not confession. But the criticism. The past coaches dishes out may quite an impression on the players who turned into satirical statement yesterday players wore t shirts to their meetings that read I eat it on the front in humble pie in the back or reference. A check serving them their desserts for plays at don't pan out daily Thomas came up with the idea. So the team more we printed it. So I mean at that point it was like any any sort of catch frame is anything if if bell check or one of the players did that again right now, I eat it. And they all wore, and we always L Bill Bill what a catch phrase eat it humble pie. Yeah. A lot of them that you just. I don't know. I mean going through laugh a lot fo Faulk you that was a win. I just love thinking of like like gronk says, yo soy fiesta. And the thought of like you you're is literally turning into dollar signs. He wore that shirt. That was one of the first that I remember like a big time guy wearing yet. He's worked in like holy shit. Yo singer the yo soy fiesta ordering Super Bowl week. It's got the bra hanging off of it to Rocco's. Yeah. And the thing is he started his own company, and they were also selling yo soy fiesta. Sure. And it was just wearing arts. What do you think the best-selling shirt of all time takeout patriots? Because I feel like take a pitcher to in Red Sox or just page. Now. Let's go patriots. Because I feel like oh, then the beard Ludd sweat beers. All right. Take Boston sports because those are just so take like what was the like a shirt that Rahm bay was monster. Yeah. Winning with Charlie Sheen was huge. I mean, it's it's not a it's apples and oranges to agree because as you get bigger, I mean, Saturday for the boys is no doubt is his own operation. We have a. Like, what was the stupidest shirt that was like damn? Rombas quite stupid. There's did you did any of the the dome like our catch phrases that we came up nailing putz sinking sinking? Old. Yeah. Those are bake, right? Yeah. Then Rothlisberger throw picks, a salt and chicks crisper sorts one's. I love that show. I have that's like out comes and goes, right? He like puts that in the vault like fifty at a time. No, those are very funny shirts. Those are some you know, every now and then every few years, I would have a moment where I'm like oh shit. Like, this is Parcells all going to work out. And some of those dumb shirts being like big time sellers are the ones when you stray cash it was that was a great one. When you put the bars do pennies on sale for one hundred dollars. Yup. And people were buying them for one hundred dollars. I was like, oh, this is a cult. There's just you know, Welker so bad his job. And we have people are so bad at our job like asks, welcome like, you have a files of all the shirts. Like, no. Like, how's that possible? But we've had. So I wish I could actually see all the shirt. So he tried to sell like flat. Go go falcon go I was the western wall time when when falcon the balloon boy got trapped in his balloon allegedly which turned out to be a hoax. We the internet went wild. We were watching the livestream. And we made a God damn t shirt for a reality TV show eleven year old who may or may not have been trapped in a balloon. I can't imagine anybody. How many had to be single digits? It had to be single digits. I a great shirt. Oh, I mean like ours. Leave. I mean like ours leaves you buy your worship. They come back. Absolutely. That's why I'm saying ball. Don't lie would be you know, an all time bestseller. We have put those on special sale. Yeah. Go falcon go in bars the worse, and it was just like a picture of a balloon and just plain as writing said, go falcon go Rex Ryan was always a those the wrecks. Let's go eat a goddamn snack was the first like homerun barstool, New York shirt. And then we also made shirts about him being a foot fucker. Shirts. Like, I was great because we did too. We did one for New York that was like pro foot- fucking. And then they were making fun of it. So mind said Toews over hose or something like that or toes over broS, and they're said getting beat licking feet. I mean, look at that that looks like literally. We used to make fun bullshit. We used to make fun of people who would like send in Microsoft, paint shirt ideas. And be like this is such a good. That's actually an awesome. Sure. It's it's she'll weather balloon with like just like outlines of clouds, and it just says go out go. Right. I want we vintage look insure people. Don't you don't need to know bar. So it's like when you wore your bingo shirt not. That means that kinda shit the cubs. What was there? Dan, had the good. We are good. That was a monster got to was it Maggie Monteiro who just said that through broken English. Well, that's the thing. You never know where they're gonna come. Oh, oh, we're not to the pitch. Yeah. We've been good with championship runs with that. We've had this is the Red Sox. We actually the damage isn't really ours. I feel like they're wearing it. But I mean, blood sweat beards. We had it like we're the phrase everyone used the players weren't everybody ward the hate us 'cause they in a same like that like the crafts wearing on thing. We are good cubs. Like, we've had the shirts that have become thus anthem. The Bruins knows face when he wore that became like the shirt. So we've had those this for the Red Sox. We don't we have a bunch of selling. Moment. The goal is when people are buying them. And they don't even know Barsial. Yeah. Like, I had people buying big sexy. That had no idea. What what one is alike? I think Olympia sports. Yeah. Become mainstream. And then everyone rips it off and you lose control of it the clown. Yeah, clown, that's rips at there's no big actually came from you. Yeah. We're doing the interview. And even when when went Dan told me, I was like, oh, I heard that. I mean, I always doing I was doing it for like a year before he went mainstream just talking about how he sat and sexy like laser show, pa- joy is us. Like he said it, but we like like it was a throwaway quote that like I'm like does the best quote ever. And then we made sure it's there's a lot of stuff like that that we I mean, even I mean became obvious. But like the grunk spike was like started here. Like, I was ranking every single time. He did it like gronk spike, and then people started like catching on, but it caught on well after like, we were already kind of blowing it up. So we do things, and that's how basically this company is what it is selling t-shirts shirts. You can knock it all you want. There's a reason why you're sporting event. Somebody throws t shirt into the crowd weather's like pupil sweat. They want their fucking t-shirts. So being a t shirt salesman. Is it maybe it's not the most luxurious. But you can make some book and Bank. All of that. The successive parcel. Boston sports is why so was a success, and Dave jokingly but only half jokingly kinda rope a hack is Boston success because of barstool, and I mean, I I've long said that you soldier soldier that. Well, it's the only the only possible explanation. The only logical explanation for this run that Boston has been on. I keep expecting it to end. And it just never will. But it is. I mean, it would be like, you know, there's no one in sight. I mean, there is certainly not in the short term teams are at the heights. I mean at some point at some point Brady split off. But even that I'm still not convinced that if Brady's leaves at the team's debt as long as Belgium's. They're literally point is eventually like oh, stop sign up zero buddy. Good for another ten years, right Celtics and Red Sox from the bus positions. So I mean. They're always kind of in the mic. I hopefully, it won't be doing this when I'm sixty. So it was like me too. I've had my fill. Yeah. It's an interesting thought though, like had you remained lovable losers. You know, maybe there's there's money in that and success in that, you know, like, I I've been playing the loser roll forever. And I've been doing my thing. But it doesn't have the same. Like, I don't know if you can play the whole like we're the dominant barstool empire. If you guys aren't winning every time, it's funny, and people will still like you and your jokes are still your jokes. And it's entertaining writing and podcasting and whatnot. But if you're not winning if Dave can't become like, the president character. It's interesting to think about where where the company would be. Yeah. I mean, there's no doubt. Like, Dan to for the most part outside the cubs. The loser row, but it is nothing that people buy T shirts champions. Right. So so it's more just the money is I feel like the the content would still be there. It's just a matter of money. Let's you do certain things like you said expand and whatnot. And that's. Only coming because of just all of a sudden influx of fifty grand. If the Mets started winning big Temeke would get in with the organization the way I corroborated, and I don't know. I feel like I've burned the bridge too much of this point. I feel like they just know me. Yeah. I mean, what's weird is like when they did go on their run like Syndergaard likes us. So like RT shirts were in the clubhouse the same way. I think I think I was just like sneaking pass them out. So they realized who was you know, what I mean? So you're still public enemy. The Mets are such a fucking mess that they're like, I think the Mets are very well run organization met still don't have a GM their GM step down six months ago, and people are turning down the opportunity to even interview. They're like, nah, offering like people who have a lesser jobs, and is like I won't even consider. If you think I could be the gym in them. I anybody could be better than what the fucking recently shit. Just go just go apply. One higher. It's it's actually I should say. It's it's not gonna make they can. They can leave either out of him. Then disagree pretty strongly. Jeff wilpon is is one of the classes. I mean dates Dave knows him. He's in Michigan is. So he likes joke about this. Jeff wilpon is literally maybe James Dolan. We'll talk about him a little bit. The worst owner knows sport. I mean, everybody hates everybody. Everybody hates it. I I mean, maybe you are the worst. Maybe you don't see things clear. Maybe I actually just root for the teams with the worst owners and all sorts. I e that I know good owner when I see him I have a bunch of. Johnson battle battle Jeff wilpon awful own. And I know you're doing this joke. But it's it's so annoying because he's actually one of the most sniveling weasel losers on the fucking planet. Biggest sniveling weasel user, ever wrong. Nobody likes ever seen. Tender than I faked his way saying he used to play like minor league baseball when he never did. He never said that his father made some team like drafting the billionth round just to say he was drafted. I didn't have the goods because he stunk because last number stunk has any numbers they didn't even fucking play such a fuck and wannabe loser. That's like, yeah. I played ball. You see like a wannabe to lose. Fuck. You told me tons of you sat with him for like four hours. Fucking ask Frank. Let me sit with Jeff wilpon for four minutes. I asked asshole. Day wrote this in like two thousand whatever when they first became like, the principal owners Doubleday wrote Nelson Doubleday was like that like, that's it. I'm out of here. I'm not going to be a part of this. And you guys are about to witness like epic amount of incompetence now that the sun has control of everything. He's the definition of like, I was the son with a silver spoon which ended the team. He fucking sucks. I hope the wilpon stay around forever. You'll ever had anything from your mouth to. Because they are less. I know Bob Kraft, personally, great owner, wick Groesbeck, Celtics. Great on I know him personally, some body. Shop is tool in shit. All right. We're back. It doesn't matter that he's in the World Series. It's still mouth when you hear it. You know that the rocket is in the building. Petty. It's it is what it is teddy. At this point. You see big f gets big poppa. That's a fuck some ball thing or for for. I mean, if it fits, okay me wrong. But you know, this guy strolled into the place two minutes ago, and he gets big poppa as entrance music while you're with your dick in your handling and smash mouth. I mean, at least at least when I hear this song reminds me that I saw dominated smashed theft. That guy what's his name is management? I don't even know his name is smashed that guy. I mean props. No. No, that's close. Rostrum even mixing it up. But he also has stupid hair that he get into the song sugar flies one of the race on the time pool. Video. Rockets here obviously big week for him at the World Series, you judge and we kick things off with a twenty two two thousand two hundred twenty five word blog it actually ended up being more than that. It was one of those weird things where just kept going last night. I worked on it was like kept on their own day. And then like Lhasa I tried to go to bed early because I knew that we had that stupid meeting today. Whereas like, I can't I can't wake up in the morning. I just can't fuck me. The meeting was at eleven AM to the the meeting was that ten oak those eleven being it was that ten. So I I ended up going to bed at twelve thirty. But then I just couldn't fuck and sleep because I was like did I get it? All this is your life story. Yeah. So UT's the last night saying, you know, two thousand were blog on why I wouldn't even be here. If it wasn't for the Red Sox. And I was like there's going to be some fucking like suicide story you're talking. I didn't understand the thesis. Maybe I missed it. Like, it was a good like recap of like how you got here. But I in maybe I was we read it walking back for the pizza review. But it seems like you're always on the path to do it. I'm not quite sure whether the Red Sox the two thousand three winning the World Series. I don't think you. Yeah. You definitely miss it. It is because I was I was giving up like I after two thousand twelve those the first year that I got paid to right? And that season was miserable there in last place. The people that I worked for were kinda dickhead. They were like they were joked they were bad. But it was like that was like the chick yet. And. Blackie? So there's the baseball here. Like right about that stuff. Yeah. And then there was like, yeah. Latkes divorced Bobby Valentine Kevin youkilis drama. There was like Dustin Pedroia drama. Yeah. There's all that shit. And I was like if this is what I was going to fuck and be like, I really want to do that. And then I sent out my resume. It's like forty part. Yeah. Two people did got a no. And like, a we'll let you know something opens up. Apply to me then. No. Because now there's a whole paragraph about that too. Like are still wasn't like a career path. I would appreciate it a paragraph on mean convince you to come here. Like, you said it was like the safest internet job right now. You've got us true. When was that? That was when he came fulltime fulltime, actually, I offer them job your, I don't know. I actually losing shirts you're working like an needed. The help jury is something I'm like, I'll give you health insurance. Like, I don't know. My factory job. I said the final. The fact that we're the facto that's like trends or Coley. All hardware store or something with dead. Enjoy works in an office. It was SEO firm with benefit the same thing. Thank fairy. Goes up there on the subway line. Never talking to final Berg being like. Yeah. Auburn majorities like health insurance. Like, we'll take care of it. And he said no father as just like a weirdo AME. He's weird open. I miss. It was okay guy. So it was kinda came back is is is a team effort. Kevin gave me the pep talk to then he came back, but it made no sense because the dead end job anyways. I mean, listen there was a time. Was there was a time where it was scary to like leave a real job to work there. But we all have to do it at some point. And by the time, you were doing it to be honest. It was pretty safe. So it was the it was the exact right time. It was like you're probably gonna race you guys in offer health insurance until like maybe a month or two after we a lot of times, though, we it's like, well, you're getting paid more. It's just I didn't have the paperwork to do it. It's like, I didn't do it yourself. I didn't wanna do it. Yeah. No. You're you're that dumb where it's like I like your job. But it's like, I I'm I designed for your like your said, he couldn't put together like, well, we don't give in shape, but I will say narrative enough to cover Charlie how much your insurance. We'll just add that you're couldn't comprehend right? He's like, I don't get insurance. Like, yeah. But you you can't get it yourself. Like, it doesn't have to be through a company. Right. I don't know if that conversation now we do anyway. So we're all go definitely great insurance. Now for the record shit, though is that you were on my space sock. Spey? The deep. Yeah. Because I couldn't I didn't know how to build a website couldn't afford to build a website and know what to do. So. Yeah. My blog started on my. So you always writing like, Barcelo blogs like it was funny. And yeah, yeah. I swear whole lot back then. Right. But there is always like the sarcastic like tongue-in-cheek type stuff. Yeah. It was never, you know, I'm not like out there trying to be fucking Peter gammons or anything like that. Speaking of dude. What what what was your take on the Trump? I started dying laughing because he's become a parody of himself gets almost like you look for Peter gammons tweets. I said you gotta put notifications on you. Can't miss it must read. Yeah. He's he's totally this Trump's wall is so cryptic that. I think I'm the dumb one. I'm like, wait. What does it was me? Right. Going over my head next. Love the previous tweets where he's completely lost marble. Yeah. You knowing it. That's you know, that he's just an idiot. But that if you see him on MLB network like he's still talking about baseball. But who is is mine only expanse to that? Maybe maybe putting the out of the loop a little bit. You'll know this who is the number one sucks blog not affiliated with barstool right now. Probably over the monster. Oh, so they've been doing it for a while. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Haters fucking do. I what like this whoever's over the wall. Like, do they not like you of our soul? That's so when I talked about like in twenty four team when I restarted sock space there couple of guys that I took from there. And then when I went to barstool, they all just like said, go fuck yourself. And I was like really like I can give you like a platform. Yeah. And they all just they were like, yeah. Like, we don't associate like they all like on fall me there heady. Yeah. There's one dude. That was like, hey, like, do you wanna come on the podcast that we do? And I was like you may better double check with the other guys that you do the podcast because I'm pretty sure that they don't like me anymore. And then he came back again. Like, we can't have you on. I was like, okay. Whatever haven't even reach out to you since no asset or anything like a like a game of thrones list or you're just gonna like smoke. They're they're fucking eggs. Anyway, I mean, like no one if they walk down the street like no one over the fuck, I feel like we get that. With the Yankees Yankees. That don't survive in Grady, guys. I believe I still get along with the right for their allies. Yeah. Yup. Read in Denver. They're pretty good. They're very good. Yeah. They've been doing it for a long time longtime, you know to Jared's. It's weird. I it there's a double. When you start your own blog, some people like they're obsessed in they can't see like going to somewhere else, even though it's the right career path to actually do they just can't like give it up. They just can't like I think at one point probably offered maybe those survive, the surviving Grady guys, but it's like their baby that books is like, you know, it's hard sometimes to make that jump. Yeah. But it's fucking say sock based t shirts, and do it has the fucking my space URL on. It says sock space underneath it says like my space dot com slash SOX nation. Somebody was looking Zoll t shirts. Like, I can't believe you on our original t shirts of the say, WWW dot. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Dot com. Yeah. It's a walking billboard at that. Right. I I mean, I get you were probably further along bigger numbers than I ever had. But like, I mean, I. I thought I sure not as my baby. But I was like if I can get a fucking paycheck real do this. Right. I have no problem putting that on high eighties, whatever. And that was always go back like when when I first came over Dave is like all right? So how because he didn't think I was going to give it up entirely. He was like all right. So when when something big happens what's going to go on barstool? And what's gonna go on socks surprised? And I was like you usually would not like, yeah. I mean that was an old navy page then anyway, he's getting that treatment these days. Well, I I don't know like how we ended up talking out. It was more like a big story like assigning goes on barstool. But if it's like an opinion piece, then I can just blog it on my site. I it didn't take very long for me to just put everything on barstool. 'cause I was like all right. If you just getting more and more people are going to see it on barstool, then like just put everything if you have like I feel crossing broadened Philly was kind of one that was like they have their own kind of enterprise going, but otherwise, but I feel like too. Yeah. I can't remember. No, maybe not. I tried to buy the one in Philly section something that was bought by somebody else. It's hard. Anytime you go in there. They look at it very like he's trying to do something. And I was just trying to get the best writers and the best bloggers and all that shit. So. Yeah. Is there anybody? That's turned you down. That's been like that was the right decision by them. Yeah. No. On. I mean, if you're keeping like one hundred percent of your own pro season, you end up making enough money to like that would have been. Hey, that's that's the same as my Barsial salary. I guess you can justify it. But the exposure the opportunity all that shit. It's like, bro, no comes knocking you. Respond to that's that's just me. We continue to grow and get bigger, and they would have been groundfloor early guys. No, I don't especially now. Like, it's just a timing thing. You're too late crossing bras. The only one that I feel like kind of maintain largely because a lack of effort by Philly guy. So it's like no seriously. I'm just laughing. True. He had like, I'm not gonna mention it. I don't know. But our guy had like ten thousand pound gorilla that he could ride and he's still couldn't like capture Philly. Stuffing? I mean, Philly's like the most similar to Boston to like it, really, you know. Well, you know. But somehow somehow he's managed the Philly guy to make it like he got screwed like he plays that card like well. Nobody's support me. It's like, you know, every city like well, Philly's also tough like. We hired a guy lives in Brooklyn to you know, we we didn't we really, but maybe MO was a true Philly guy. But even just when you're not in the place when when you were during those days you were writing about the city. So it was like what did I see yesterday on the subway? What happened like in town? You know point counterpoint, I would say I heard a chi- named Neil in Chicago and somebody else inhaled Neil because he's like, I'm just gonna take this and fucking. The city over that. That guy's aims began. Yes. So that was that was an example like Dan didn't want to give up hawk love, and then Neal started. And I think he was like all right. Wait a minute. Someone's going to Chicago bar, so Dan's original thing was very similar carapace. And he was earlier he because Dan to Dan had hut glove. We all saw it. I love the website this guys. Very funny met with them. He said yes to Chicago got cold feet. No just beard for couple years, then Neal was show, right? I'm better than this guy was different and Dan, just inhaled Chicago. And the rest is history with that. I mean, there was it was so it was such a steamrolling that there were conspiracy theories that Dan was Neil was writing poorly under the name Neil to make himself look better. That's. Knows you could be dead. Neil. There was this like movement in the comments section of like all you did was replace Neil with like your favorite song. So people like rock me, mama, like an wagon. Neil shock me. Like an electric Neil Neil for Neal. Was this like move. Neil. Neil for Neil Neil before. Neil. A body. He was a funny enough, dude. But he was going up against one of the great. So it was just like you guys met him. He was a real human. You was. But I mean, he came on Casey radio and people still thought on video they still thought that we like hired someone to like pretend to be Neal is. It was something special. Everybody's got their own little story garage. If you wanna if you wanna read his it was a twenty two hundred word blowjob for himself and your neck hurt from blow yourself that one. I blood job for myself. I talked about how much I failed. Yes, true. You're honest about it. That was a blog about how you felt. I mean, obviously that I'd I'm here now. But no, I talked about my failures. Yes. What a spin. Did I not you didn't read it this fucking guy? Like he missing we're talking about. We just talked about how you're listening hires ler. And it's like oh state school, and she left the building. And you know, you're doing the song space. You not doing it. I read it. I mean, listen, you're not writing that blog if there's not a happy ending if you some fucking loser working at a fact horse not right in that. And so once and for all when I say you at a poster media room, you didn't. I mean, I tweeted that you it's it's excessive a girl in a Red Sox barstool poster at that time at this era is opposed. That's me you. You make it seem like it was exactly. I thought it was like your your face barstools. What's the difference? Well, there's a huge difference. Because back then there wasn't in two thousand seven if you showed me pictures airport back full poster assigned the back of it. Probably. That's the only way to get that. Poster. I knew very comics no chance I handed out a free poster. I handed outside Fenway. Maybe I got it from you. You did not make sure you remember. It was all you're holding like your moms hand be on one day going to be that guy, mama. The weirdest garage found phenomenon is how you're not aging or changing at all. Now, I you look like an eleven year old boy until you were like twenty five and now twenty five to thirty you've been identical. When was the picture on your blog taken? This was twenty thirteen. I mean, if you show that today. It says twenty thirty minute necessarily, exactly. Exactly. And it's gonna be it's not going to be that crazy five years. It's not like, you know. But I mean everybody you get late gains a win. They lose weight change your haircut. You change. You. Look exactly the same hair. Same dear. I mean, everything he's done nothing but Red Sox baseball. So it's just kinda maintaining right now you've pretty he's a pretty boring doodle. It does watch the fucking socks. But if that's what you want to see read. That's it. That's right drama from girls, you know, house. I belly. What was fake news? You even see that. I was like waiting for you to react to it. And never happen. Always looking for dad's approval. Wendy, do it. When was that story yesterday? No Saturday now Saturday Saturday Saturday because I went to sleep. Yeah. So Saturday whenever Kim I must have I was all over the place. So Sarah is pretty engrossed in Michigan and running the day, and then with the Knicks Celtics night. So my feet. I'm sure yours to once. You miss something. You just miss it. It's in God's hands now. Yes show. Nobody stands always thought that it was real. I mean, I did it's pretty disappointing. That it wasn't. I was like can I see it worked out the way that it did? Because it's like, it's it was done the internet. It was much like Chris sale where it was like wait is there real. It looked pink. And it was like it was it was like a fake earring that didn't have any give to it. So you had to like pinch it back and then. Yeah, just like jamming on there. So I thought you really went and did it because I it was feasible because it's not permanently Pango get it. I thought you did it when I saw it too. Because it's like, oh, he is falling. I went to jail for like Brady. I did. Yeah. I take back tweet us behind bars. It's like I mean, I would do that for Chris sale until go do it. What's my? 'cause when now it's for sale. What about him that he may be whereas rarely about joked about having a play butter? Yeah. Go get arrested. The right hire can make a huge impact on your business.

Just text me four thirty one breaking all caps word is somebody took a shit on the floor in the bathroom. Oh what? No. Boy, I said is that true? You said big sag. Oh, right saga right now shoes are being checked because somebody stepped in it. I don't know get the fuck. The zoo. But. This is this is another rap like someone found out the rat has to be upstairs the second floor complete institutional way. Somebody took a shit in our bathroom. Is there that we're even like is there? Yeah. I mean, there's hey take way. But whoever did I mean could not be aware that we I'm snoop getting texts as we speak three dots. What do you mean? Somebody stepped in some stuff in shit. Well, if someone like walked into the bathroom in crap. Okay. I will say this. I did hear recently. Oh, boy that chap's was but messing around with very realistic fake poop, you left it on air Kaz couch. Erica was freaking out that someone shit her office that may have made its way to the bathroom raw be discovered. It. Oh boy. Somebody's gonna call. Can we have somebody calling from the office? I mean, it's got I don't want to hijack the World Series. But this I mean, we have a problem picking on our floor. I mean, this could also the birth of great content because I think you're going to have to do interrogation. Who's who's your top five list of suspects that? Oh, good. Like this feels like a classic part might take bit. Yeah. Right. Big cat, PF, t-, definitely. Barstool rigs in the office of the first time. We throwing rigs it looks Louis. My doesn't have the brain seem like that. Bob, no, chips, Chepstow only. What if what if reasons tired of you say in the headlines new office time fire back now, that's the smells, no pun intended. But like a PMT skit, well what what time was it discovered. Was there enough time for hubs to have been the culprit before he came to boss where is where is. It is a monsoon outside. What do we do? If this game gets rained out that puts us in quite a quagmire. I thought that I thought you were gonna be like dough look at your phones because the game cancel by the way, the plan for everybody who's either on their way here not here doesn't have tickets here. So we're gonna turn this around. We have a big screen behind us yet. So we're going to watch the game in down. We're going to be live like our electric factory. So all the reactions and everybody can watch and see how Red Sox fans deal with it assuming there's a game Peter gammons on TV. Mike to that guy. I'm all in Peter gammons. I feel like he's tweeting how my dad's going to tweet. A couple of years. He's not gonna it's well my dad's already tweets like border line. Fire and he's very political. So he could just start being like, hey, the green monster looks like Trump Trump's revolutionary. He's the first person that ever you don't awhile. It's always been the stick sports stuff because but now plenty of politics and sports gammons is the first melted too. Big time as decided I'm doing both every time without an out. So making sense. You think that someone has has told him? Hey, Pete launch. You launch you reel it in a little bit. No MLB. He works for network. How does someone it'll be nowhere? I'll be like, hey, I think it's time that someone from the network just takes over your Twitter. Do you think he knows he's on Twitter? I mean, he's had his history from longtime the tweet. So he came after a couple of times like he tweet he Chirps me once a year every year. So does he said since twenty fourteen he's he's at me once a year every year, I still haven't got one in two thousand eighteen oh, it's coming. There is one year. He told me to grow up because it was I was talking about like the lesser trade. I said the Red Sox got fleeced in the lackey trade as I mean, they they got John lackey he's been a stud for them, and we got fucking Ellen Craig Joe Kelley, and then he was like, oh, yeah. Lackey didn't want to be here. Grow up. Grow up as vicious. That's like Jack Edwards Jack Edwards slid into my he's like big fans, but I'm gonna need you delete that Hitler joke as I compared Goodell the Hitler. Yeah. He's like I like your work just tick down for me. I'm like what I'm not taking that. No, you're gonna. I don't I don't like that joke. That's wrong. And then we went on like a long Spain. I don't remember World War Two. You didn't they? Yeah. He went full blown on it. And then people are sending me his like he has on air like wild comparisons. I actually posted the entire strange because I don't I don't recognize DM the secrecy of. Yeah. Like that, you know, anything on Twitter that's public like it just happens to have the damn thing. But I don't recognize it. How should have it at my profile? I don't recognize. Tommy, Tommy from HQ Tommy, are you there? We're coming in real relaxed. Tommy that somebody should on the floor. Tommy. Yeah. I didn't get put a lot. How's that? Who cleaned? It really hear anybody. No. Spider my guy. I mean who else was going to do it. I don't wait a minute. This is like a major problem. Oh, yeah. Whoever show ever should wear anymore. I could see much doing it got the ability to pull it off. No, I don't think Lenny can get things. Glenn? Here's an even realize. Saying he might just track in like a homeless guy shit. Money. Yeah. No. This is a serious problem. Big problem. But I can't live took this to get out. How when was it discovered tunnel? Few minutes ago. Maybe rob. Okay. We can't be hub Lord of the flies. They're like, what's how people like pointing the finger and fight. Like, I don't understand your someone to walk them. I go. There's poop on the floor. There's like. There's like a. In the middle right now. Three yellow. Tell me it was this on the third floor. Can we confirm the third floor third floor? Most literal stool scenes ever. Which which bathroom was window or the closer one window? Yeah. So this seems this seems deliberate. Is Erica there? Is the building. I haven't seen her. Is. For America is is the adult in charge. She must be not handling this very well. Somebody has to put their hand up and be like, I'm very sick. But if it was solid than that. You can't use that excuse good point. Was it solid. Tom. You want to talk the mardi everyone. No, I've had enough of mardi. All right. Well, this is a legitimate. Always on in Philadelphia episode when we start Rican recreating those. Yeah, we're in a bad place. I don't want to get distracted where it lands on pub World Series show. The fact that that's happening at the office while we hear is disheartening disturbing this heartening even Friday. It's friday. This would fly. Thoughts about this. Because we deserve it. This could be an enemy, and then I want it like in bright lights that I was not at the office like nothing to do with it. How are we not pull the tape? I feel like that. You don't have to sift through much footage to find out. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Why don't you? Pulling the tape keeping an eye on everybody used that bathroom. Andrew. Can we get that message the tech? Yeah. That's really simple to little back legwork here figure out who did this and whoever did this. Are they fired like they better hope it's PNT because of that everybody's in play like nobody there is irreplaceable except maybe those guys Kevin. And I don't see Kevin being a shit guy. What what would the punishment? Be once you find out who this. It's going to be heavy and severe. Is it like is it one of those things that you're gonna spend the content or are you just like? Oh, I'm I'm disgusted like legitimately. But you won't fire them because. No is no no getting fired as employees of someone pooped on the floor. Yeah. That's an intentional. What if what if it was funny? Poop versus militias. Poop poop on the floor. What if it was like what if it was like a bit Jared? I know you've been here all day. But you're making yourself a suspect questions, I'm just I'm just curious. What what's the is not what people came here to see? But it's just. It's just people eating out the sidetracked by raking development at the office. Which will they'll be a lot more on this evening act? I'm sure we'll dive deep no pun intended into this. It could be some suspects on that. Listen, we're we're going to break and regroup that breaking news was attic jar rarely is breaking news like lives up to the hype. Correct. I mean that's fair. Do other side note that this isn't baseball related but big big pizza. News broke today. Oh, gee, I shutdown goodfellas stunning. So proud life it so goodfellas. That's the pizza review that they kicked me and Frankie out and I spit on the ground gave it a zero point zero zero. Today on their Instagram page. I'm pulling it up right now. And they said they have a post from Goodfellow goodfellas community. You are amazing. We're blown away by the support. We've received over the last two weeks and deeply appreciate your business. Over the years. You have reignited our purpose. That said we got some work to do. We're closing down. Shop to retrain our staff and get back to basics delicious hut slices and exceptional service where wearing are zero point zero shirts, not only as a reminder of where we've been but also our dedications, you are goodfellas family. We hope to serve you suit. That's insane. Proud likes it crowd. Like, I'm on Hafer shut the fuck out. I'm I'm a big good fellows guy now because I am a little woke. This is too good. A response. I think they might have hired a PR firm or something like this. Because this is exactly what you have to do in this situation to is it though to shut it down. Hire staff like lessons on how to not be addicted. It was one guy. I'll be locked looked. Two to three days. I'll be shocked, the t shirts are brilliant everything. They're doing here is absolutely flawless, Frankie as a pizza guy. What like would Pirelli shut down. If if you had that type of service, man, I don't know what the hell we would do this question. I was telling these guys I mean when we would get one bed review on Borelli's yelp. Like, we'd sit down around our family dinner table and be like, how do we respond to these? Clearly monsters who goes home and writes, a fifteen power GRA page about how they're baked clams weren't perfectly basically, listen lady. We're busy. We're not. Can I do remember this? December of two thousand fifteen but but yeah, I mean, it sucks. This guy was an asshole. He was he was a dickhead. I mean when we do that review Frankie's, I think he may I could see his face. It's like you start go is like you may come across as a ticket there. I'm like, I don't think so they were just picture like our business has been around for sixty five years, not a big deal. But imagine if someone came athletes one of our like, high school delivery boys was like fuck you to someone like he said it to the wrong guy, and he really said to the wrong guy. Dave we've just like owned the pizza game right now, the place just got shut down. They shut literally. Yeah. I mean, it's tough. But that guy's fucking love it aided. We've always waited for this moment to we're always been like when are we ever gonna just like kicked out of a place like someone one of these days, we were in Texas, and this guy big Lou at this place. Big lou's called me up and said he had a family and how dare us come. They're shooting. Now, your number 'cause I called in the order, and he saw New York or the was fucking crazy. The big lou's pizza their thing. It was like the size of a tech you needed to they team. They want it handed to you had to pull up your car like the people carry out. It's a gimmick slice. And that's why says like it's a liberal you needed a pickup truck to put the pizza. What you're giving like mid five gimmick slice. It was like a mid five. But this guy wanted to kill Frankie, and I never get my number. It's all bad. But I love the. The feeling like when we're reviewing, and we know something's going on. When I saw that guy come onto the screen, and I saw him do those little fingers on my patio. I'm like, oh, we got a big one. The number is like the Facebook numbers numbers. Fishing. We got some why if you're good villas, though, why why wouldn't your first response to be like, hey, we've fired the guy that was they fired him. I saw something where they're like. He's a hard worker. He just screwed up. Right. Yeah. I it's a great PR move. But I love it. It's that will get added. Probably to my Twitter file pretty quick down goodfellas for for of football stuff coming. I know. I know I got the DM warning DM mourning mourning. Hit. Where's our producer going, man? Don't worry. We're in the middle show. Just do whatever you gonna do yourself, multimillionaire. No, I have to time. These things timepiece thing. I told Twitter to take their blue checkmark in it. I feel like I feel you shouldn't have that line in there because it seemed like a dick. No, not that it just feels like it feels like a shirt, it feels like someone who would never get a blue checkmark when where that t shirt like why would have won. But I told him I didn't want it like you've actually could have one if you want now at this point lack of the day. Yeah. They used to be more icicle ice storm Twitter's headquarters. I remember to mandate like an explanation. Do you think if you want to one today that you could get it? Yeah. I mean, everybody can get it. They've they've remained it difficult again. Oh, yeah. Trip people of this. I don't know if people I mean, there are so many believing in our office who have them like, yeah. We got that for. Yeah. Big time Coley, different note, what's going on with south up at the Celtics thing. It's the first year where they're they like think they're good every other year. They're like, oh, we're gonna try all eighty two games. And then we got to clog LeBron I think LeBron left. I mean, Terry even said it in the preseason. We're acting like we already won something. What did you think? At Terry's quotes, saying he wasn't it. Didn't love the playing time last night. Yeah. I mean, listen if you were hitting shots who had been out there because literally no one could buy a bucket everyone stunk last night and Terry before the year he was saying he wanted starter tight minutes. He didn't care if he was coming off the bench, but wasn't he's been closed out one of the games close out against the Knicks, and he closed out against philli. But it's like if no one's hitting shots grabs plan rookies last night. Guys, would literally never seen the court before Gara Sean was out there. He was just like listen anyone who could buy bucket Tatum scored I think seven point he stunk fucked Kobe Bryant, it was it wasn't great. And they need their teeth kickin. They need I already circled the game. Anyone who listen to mixed today? Phoenix Suns, November ninth. They lose game by twenty they play Utah. The next night in Utah. They're going to run Utah to the gym. That's exactly what's going to happen. It's what they need the medicine. They need they need. They can't lose by three to the magic. That's not going to set anything in. They need their teeth kicked him. I got breaking news, more breaking news. Like you. There's a there's a rainbow over Fenway park right now. That's rod Beck. Smile. Down on. Yeah. I tweeted that already. Oh, I missed that. It was probably my tweet. You saw what are your thoughts on dodger fans? Who has their kind of flimsy? I feel like I've never met like a die hard dodgers fan. That's like I watched all one hundred sixty two, but they're passionate when they don't care that guy when we walk out of the hotel. There's a couple of dodger fans at the hotel the guy outside the hotel who had a girlfriend Louis Instagram model he had on like a Jean jacket with a scarf become into the game. And that's exactly what I think if they could be going to catch it could be going to Dodger Stadium. You don't really? Yeah. I've been getting Walker Buehler's head. I'm in the kitchen, so. He huge story. So that's why I sent him whereas the exchange I was I said something affect if I pulled up. I hope you don't have another game. Like you did against the Braves walked in and gave up a grand slam. And he's like, yeah. Me too. That's kind of an asshole thing to say is well, welcome to the terror dome. Buddy. Tweet him too. Directly into the brain meaner. I'll tell you exactly what J voting. No, no. He thought it was going to be nice. I started out by being like a big week coming up on Walker. Idiot. He's still out of breath. You're twenty two car right here. He saw his through hell I have to have a lot of fun. What the Saugus and back. Yeah. He's a real dummy. Three. Even have a way for this guy to talk show. Why is it so many questions about you've been a more? No put the third. Put the fucking headset. Oh god. I put it on. There you go. Hello. So welcome to the show hubs. I guess the fuck you can't just go. Yeah. Yeah. This holiday staple. You took the train to downtown Boston. And then went to Saugus. That's what I'm saying. I gotta drove him bike bags off. Why don't you just like give them the co-lead a whole or something? I didn't think it would take forty five minutes both ways it said fifteen minutes last night when I looked up. Oh last night. What sounds like traffic? I never said. I was smart never said. No dumb. Are you? Are you still like like how is this going on you just like done? Are you just the beat man? And when I was just running pox is out to the street in the pouring rain one by one. I was like what are we doing here? Like, there's a there's a car coming fast enough that just ended. But I mean, it's tough. How is it? How is Frankie? If you think I'm getting off easy now like she's Chrysler. No, Frankie he wants every every day is like he'd be meeting enough the hub talking about here. It was more of like, I was I explained this the hub. It was the day that we were winning. We won the game that one time that we won that one game that one time I was like feeling real good. And we would Tommy I'm like, I don't like I don't think hubs is having the worst time in the world like Yankees were just winning. He's out there. He's like drinking. This was Saturday night. We were having a great time. I was wondering from the hospital because of Dallas that was. Yeah. But then that was that was Sunday days. Well, Saturday we won like it couldn't have been that bad. Didn't remember the way? No, no, no. We were there Saturday you Bassim during the Houston series. Now knows it was because you we hadn't even lost the bet during the Yankees series. All right. Any other time aside from? Yeah. It was sincere at the Yankees series. Yadda lost yet. That was when the Astros had one. Yeah. They won't game on Berlin pitch game on. It was it was Houston versus the Red Sox hubs is getting off easy. Yeah. That's a dirt back all the time. We said the time I said just get enough easy. I was being like sarcastic dick to you almost. You want to tell me you want to punish him. That's the way cast Yankee fans Yankee fans Houston members of continually just Claude each other's. I it's it's sad to see. True. They're eating each. I wasn't eating out hopes. Okay. As I had the problem with. I do like that your mother made you that that that's a way better. One your mom made that she did. That's awesome. We mostly I didn't know that part of the story. Yeah. Midnight to wasn't it. One in. Like, you're still pretty young. How old are you twenty four twenty four but still like you just had like an accelerated life beat you down. So you over the last three weeks you become a fifty year old, man. But like you can't really see that upset about it right here. This is my life. Oh, yeah. This blue in my life, like I'm vested completely into this sun, just ready to I'm like, my soul just being tested every single day. You have hub. Do you have any faith in the dodgers? Yeah. I think it'd be good series. I mean, I still think you going to win you guys you guys one to one hundred teams in a row one hundred zero. There's no reason to think you're not going to beat the dog the first time since the two thousand four Red Sox would be able to do that. Be to one hundred one teams the postseason in the Red Sox obvious. What was the cardinals not the swept the cardinals swept the Rockies, and it was four to the second. And that was like a crazy game with the defense. I just don't see this go more than five. They're so good. And David price is going to be Derek Lowe say he's like where you had the. Because he had the best season. Everyone's killing him killing him killing him. Lackey though, no. More like the fuck you you guys didn't like me, and you lack even tipped his cap. Yeah. Yup. It wasn't low the low low low Mike a playoff rotation. And then he came in and won all the clinching game and low is like hated as like closer to. He was a good closer, nasty sinker ball. Yeah. Yeah. What's he up to now? What's he up to now? He's teaching Courcelle ought to throw a sinker ball Beatrice thing. Yeah. I again, I keep saying I feel like I could be a little overconfident because I really don't think there's any way they're gonna lose on just going through t-shirt, ideas pouring through tee-shirt ideas, when we were in the middle of that a little teaser pile out meeting whatever you wanna call out Monday. Like, it didn't even cross my mind that note like, oh, these might not go on sale. We have to sell the. Yeah. It'll be a stunning turn of events. Would you you ask me this is it a must can't say came once a must win for anybody. All right. Sorry Kershaw them out there there. I don't think they're pitching Ross was as deep evolved in Portola. They've been our thoughts. Yeah. So our studs are coming. They've all been like the best hitter in the post didn't you slap a must win on the sales start for game. One. Was in Houston. Or was it New York? Those New York probably New York is there was a short series. No, I think it was it was a sale in New York start. Because if you look at sale, then you've got price against the Yankees in the playoffs. And then if you can't go down oh to go back to New York. I think you were nervous about price last series though. And it was like we're out to going back to Houston. Like it's over. I forget I think most went on was game one of the playoffs. LDS? Here's the Walker Mueller exchange. Okay. So we can go. So walker. Bueller change. I said big week. You aren't gonna tease this by the way. Sure why we had a break break. I liked it. That's perfect. Penalties. And he doesn't know even though I initiate the conversation. I still don't recognize DM. Job. Free. I don't know what Bryant we have all our Red Sox merch here. A five boxes worth five. So it's for today and tomorrow because we're doing this again for game two is so go to all the nice red sock fans in handout half the merch. Give him a free man of the people use go hand this stuff out make yourself useful. Thank you. Thank you. But keep peeps on the boxes for tomorrow. So give away half who already I left to with. All right. So give. Well, thumbed thoughts. So handout. Handout, everything he got here. Good luck. Everything. Wade house before you go. We were talking about Machado me, and you're the other day. And now you're saying that you're on Machado. I wonder like you guys like eight Machado right now is he like a traitor who walk Machado? Why would it be? I'm not trading. I'm sorry. Machado's a five my brain disorder, your billing. Is he the guy that you guys wanna hate right now? I don't have him over the top hate. But i've. Like, William like in the aliens. Yeah. I've feel good booed. Do you think he cares though? I know you said he gets rattled. Does you open? We've said he doesn't hustle. He's like, I'm not a hustle guy. That's just not my bag that doesn't mean it doesn't have rattled by getting booed. I do think he will be good for the Yankees. Now. Like, the Yankees will be that like are you so sure that he's going to the Yankees. Well, he's got to be our number one. Why he's gonna be out? Why why don't you think is in LA? I think is born for LA. I mean, Cory Seager is getting also Tommy John surgery. So I mean, you can that opens up shortstop their shortstop for the New York Yankees. And then what does that mean, the New York? Thank you, guys, still talk. I know. Oh, New York. You gotta. New York Yankees. Don't anything out. We literally like literally stole Frank Sinatra from you sit. You haven't seen yet? You have to win you have to win. Well, we are thinking back on a season. You can't steal something from someone at that season results in a loss or you can't you can't but back to Machado for a second. So Seger had the elbow surgery. So I don't know that it'll be one hundred percent healthy at the start of next year. He could he could start at shortstop. And if not they can I don't know what they would do to shift guys around. But I would assume that the dodgers are going to be in on him the Phillies are going to be in on him. The Yankee fans are already parading around like this is with the Yankees unbelievable amount of money. Waiting for the beginning under the luxury tax, and I don't want to make about the Yankees. Right. We lost. We've got walking around. And this is the lowest moment the franchise hopes before game one of the World Series. Thoughts. Hat handing out free red sock. Merck to Red Sox. We talked about this before on section ten. The youth think the Boone homerun is the worst thing that ever happened the Yankees from this because they made them the manager. But that it made the socks up for four showing. We got folk out of that we had in the no closer thing. We've got folks. Yeah. No. I mean, it may the sauce get their shit together and ten years later, the Yankees lose their ship some real credibility to that could be I think it's it's a slam dunk for. Sure. Oh, by the way, I gave that re- that Walker. Bueller? Teas. First of all this rainbow. I know we are talking about the rainbow of Fenway beautiful. That's got me thinking sweep I mean, the rainbow someone replied to your reach weight and said there was a rainbow prior to the twenty thirteen World Series. Yeah. Wow. Evidence coming up Austin right now. All right. A rainbow shirt probably. A rainbow over the monster. Yeah. Bank third of all right here. Thrives over. I said big week route and heart against you. Don't let that Braves game. Getting your head hate to see that happen. He said classless move out of you. You guys don't have the chop. We said that we should chop. Well, he's pitching in LA game. Great. Yeah. So I don't know why he would imply that the Braves are feistier. It seemed in the Red Sox fans shop. Oh thomas. Oh, it's not like, I know. I thought it was I knew it was a Braves reference. But I thought he was saying like the Red Sox don't have. They don't have like a kunia. Yeah. These w well he said we don't have to to get in his head. I'm very curious to see what the crowds like tonight. I need it. I need them to be fucking rowdy tonight. I mean, I I was disappointed at some of those games where the crowd was just Fenway park is one of the only stadiums. Maybe like Wrigley is another one where they don't instruct. You went to get louder. Make some noise Yankee Stadium is one of those dumpy S stadiums. Does that oh embarrassed? The noise gets loud. Whatever Fenway doesn't have that. But they usually know went to get loud. I need to see that in this World Series. Because I haven't seen it to this point. Speaking of bums. I gotta go quickly. Lebron flat out choke last night. The Lakers haven't won in. This is another LA team. Now people are going to be like oh LeBron hit a game three which he did. I will I will give him that. But then the Lakers were I believe seven or six with thirty seconds to go to pointer by San Antonio Lakers. Miss three pointer by San Antonio, cut it to one. So it six they follow Brown with ten seconds misses the boat out salute choke job, Patty mills hits a shot with six seconds. And then LeBron comes MRs game winner. Yeah. Absolute choked up the Lakers may never win. LA me. Never went again. This could be the curse. Lebron? See I thought belong to brick was a nice little hat tip to Kobe. I guess yeah. I got I got you. We're doing the same thing. Now. Also, our guy green. Any he? So I was up watching it. I made a little video just talking shit to LeBron greenie pulled out like nineteen Eighty-four gift. Lebron just like squinting like doing a scrunchy face. I talked to greenie today. Greenie, what are you doing? Do. You have TV like, why are you using a gift? He's like it clearly meant I was confused. Why didn't drive to the lane? It was maybe some of the worst internet thing I've ever seen. I saw you're up late last night in your crosshairs these days on well. Here's the thing with greeny and with wreath the amount of effort, they put in on match on they see everything they're up twenty greenie actually had a log up after the Lakers game like three minutes after it happened. It was painfully born. So my thing is like I said this the Frankie if you gave me two guys new said one has the effort, but one has like the internet like chops and his funny I start with the effort guy like their their lives. We should have basketball power solution be obviously coli, but for the amount that they're doing the amount of basketball. If we can like if we can get them to have your like savvy with social media, we'd be like top tier best. We are watching everything you're just so stupid. But don't use. Think that and this is the am I right to get it? Right. They see if they could get them to be marina like interest because they're doing it. They just don't know what to do. But I can't you know, you can't teach height. You can't eat feed. You can't really teach like internet savvy and funny, you can you can beat somebody that you've done it to a lot of some of these accounts. Like a highlights I read that article on the back. It's not like he's just alert. Our guys are alert. So why don't you just teach them to make gifts or something like that? Yeah. That's what marina house the to. I mean to use a gift of LeBron when he was in the Cavs jersey shrugging, it'd be like well that means you should have drove into the lane. It was like what planet are we on greening? Sorry. Not great. How did you get my LeBron ran out of the way? It's Elway with the beat LA. Fuck LA and all that shit. Do you prefer clunky work boots or delegate fashion boots cheap boots to fall apart?

We're we're boys now because I didn't know you were right. I know you follow me on Twitter narrow Hawes from now on always hug it out every single time. I will be got a piece of paper. I got going my mouth. Yes. You can very professional move. Let's get right to the first question. Is there any chance UC in a million years? What is that? Do. I have fuzzy Myer does everyone fuzz snow. Fuzz fuzz. All right in headsets. Good Eddie chance. Do you see Red Sox in four or five three? Is there any chance at dodgers win the series in your mind? Any in my mind. Not being a red sock Homer. No, I Red Sox and five and I don't think the Red Sox get enough credit. And this a true story. Very we've heard the word humble, it's true. Like pop first of all I had a sleepover. Poppy, south two nights, going straight up random sleepover slept at bobby's house had no toothbrush. No, nothing. What's happening? Like, what is that? Like, what is that? A sleepover. Let's just get right into it. Because I want to get the ice. But I landed quick Miniver drink next thing, you know, DeRosa and his wife in the lobby before I was going to meet him for drinks and come on with us, and we went on to poppies little restaurant Yvonne's and had a drink. And then you know, we had a few cocktails laughing. He takes us back to the hotel and then to sleep over I'm in. But I'm looking back at hydro son. My wife to make up and all about it. She's like I'm in. And so we rolled out we slept over like literally slept over the fourth thirty had a great time. And you got a better you couch. It I met I was a random ABC's on overs the older kid younger kid they were room. But we had a great time. But what was the story going? Have you lead with Iceland? I the sleepover party slumber party at big Papi's. So it was so we went into the clubhouse yesterday. I don't know a whole lot of these guys. Right. Lot of the guy for joy, the guys that you start playing with as you get older around the game. But being around him yesterday for few hours, tremendous tremendous clubhouse and Alice cordona, great job doors wide open like, you know, it's not command. Your door's always closed the doors open. He's in there players would bobbing in and out there trying to get their tickets in music's go and Carter plan, but I just looked around. And it reminded me of a little bit of our team because we weren't the best players, but we're the best team. Yeah. We had our superstars poppy. And Pedro and in Manny, they have their Mookie and J D And Chris sale. You guys talk. Why does the I for sure I was Ricky Henderson without the talent. Yeah. They they have a really nice feel and that's in this game in this day and age with the change in the necklace bobbing and weaving it just kind of play ball, and they one hundred eight games. They don't get enough credit which which guy on this team reminds you of yourself. Yeah. They don't have any like really good looking. No, I would say probably like a Brockhall, right? Yeah. I'm out way better than Broncos. Be honest. This is true cycle that you're not he's way better defensively. I probably have more power than Broncos. Put that way. Pop. Some you pops better hair. He's got better teeth. Minor fake. Are you saying you have better here than bra? Probably. Yeah. I've great Dave strong disagree. Let me. Let me see here's surgery, but. I do not. Six months. Here's a debate. I'm curious on your side. We've had this. I've been having this forever. I think on this say this. I'll say my Lee, not a try not to be with it. I think Clayton Kershaw is a dead dog. I've shoker in the playoffs. I think he is nice worst personality wise, he seems like very nice in them. The worst big game pitcher today the best the best pitcher virgin reason. I think he's the worst clutch pitcher we've ever seen for a guy who is the best pitcher maybe ever generation regular season. And he just lays efter egg in the postseason for a position that if you give the ball to say, Curt Schilling you give the ball to Bumgarner you give the ball the Beckett. It's like if you get to run you expect to win that game with him. Never. It's like two runs doesn't hold it. He gives up five yesterday over and over again that no I don't agree with what you're saying one. You say five, okay? And yes, the facts are fine. We see eighth postseason five plus runs. Really? He left the game. He only. Gave up three then to pass balls happen to run score. So as bullpen kind of tanked it those were his runners on base. Yes. But that's a fifth inning. You shouldn't even be the whole pension even be involved. No doubt. But but I wanna I wanna I wanna get straight postseason. No. This isn't you're not playing against us. An example this year of the Marlins, and you know, the, you know, the teams that aren't so good those numbers where you kind of pound up numbers. It's very similar to guys with great numbers that didn't ear three thirty forty one hundred thirty and how many of those hits and home runs and RBI's were big situations, which we call hit and good pitching. David ortiz. Rakes good pitching right on the big stage, you need three and home. Remember down by three seven hundred forty rabies. It felt like one hundred thirty eight of them were big, right? Yup. Anti move on. I remember. Clayton Kershaw though, I will say this. There has been a struggle bunny aspect to him during the postings on the stage. But the teams are very good. Now. I don't know who says he's the best of all time regular season numbers. We see some serious numbers. Right. Then there's big postseason numbers. Like, you said the shillings and the Beckett's and those guys they take the stage and bombed garner. You're never going to see a run like that. Again. Don't expect to see a Bumgarner run where he goes right through the royals. So give me the ball. I'm gonna win the wild card game. We're gonna go. No one's going to get a hit or run. Right. That was that was just one why I feel I feel like Becca kind of did it a little bit with like the Marlins do agree with the rain. I feel like I feel like he had ninety eight Clayton Kershaw thrown eighty eight the ninety you expect them to the facts like facing the Red Sox one hundred eight games. He he's got ninety in his back pocket. He doesn't have ninety eight. Right. So that to me is the difference between. So if you're starting a team in this you can include regular season, you can include postseason. I would take all three of those aforementioned pitchers before would take. Because I know you can't depend on when the postseason and that's poor of debate. When you sign somebody for Boston, right? You send the best player in the world. But if he doesn't make plain the city right wrong sign so poorly that you're right. You could that's the part of the opinion. This is what goes on. And seems like right now in baseball like there's fifteen guys. And you know, we're going to have you have your opinion. I have mine and then my boy right here. Jerry's going. But it's interesting because I still feel confident when Clayton takes amount I really do because I know he's given you everything you has has that makeup that kind of plays. But last year in Houston. He couldn't do it. Right. Yup. Hot club. Good club Boston last night game one cell Kershaw. You're thinking maybe under its cold and rainy and yes this game has twelve runs. And you're like man, we never saw that coming right? I look at Clayton as a great pitcher and the struggles have been real in the postseason. But I don't think they're as bad as they seem on paper for some reason. Like that one curveball that he threw to Madame's with the Saint Louis could never get by the cardinals. Right. But but that's only because of that pitch. If you didn't do that. But then you have other guys like doesn't matter because one bad break that Jim Madani face with ninety eight and that's it. And I do think we will see a power planes. Exactly. Power plant, right, Madison. Glavin weren't the best pitcher for the Braves in the postseason. John smoltz. Once they were great. I mean, they're sei-yung. But at the end of day Walker billers gonna play in this series for the dodgers probably more than Clayton Kershaw. He's the guy because he Can Tho ninety eight naked strike guys out. Dave's already been with a Walker is big fan of I've been in his head pretty good. So if he struggles feel free to use that Ted. Awesome. Seriously, fifteen minutes Graf. Dude with his brain got just just so you have a little information show. It's real it's real it's real got right in his kitchen to I actually respected the move. It doesn't matter friend foe. When you're playing our hometown team. Sure. The enemy you rooted threats. Are you allowed to did? You Dave Roberts. When he got introduced, you know, I I would absolutely cheer him. Right. It's kind of weird though. Like, I'm thinking here. He was SOX nation, you know, hope for six years now, he's like the man who cheered. I know. It was a great question. Like, of course, they're going to cheer him. But it's kind of weird because you are the enemy right now. Red Sox fans aren't stupid like John cryan. Kind of weird. That's right boot. When you go to go to the Yankees, you're going to get there's other guys who was there was somebody who left. Oh, the perfect example is Lester like everyone followed that situation. Right. Everyone knew that he kind of got forced out so to speak for everyone loves why managed the New York Yankees. Do I get booth here? Here's the. Got you. At a man's Yankees. Like guys say Boston, we love cowboy down. Yeah. Going to the Yankees is tough. It's crazy. You to do it would be different because I need the money you that? But then you're also a guy that in was it the two thousand seven you're like playing for the Orioles. But throw a first pitch for the Red Sox. Like who else could do that? He's hanging on my bad. Best. He was a game seven. How crazy was that? He's a first baseman for the Baltimore Orioles. I'm going to go throw out the first pitch around eight. Fail. Who is our president? Deceive. They can throw the first pitch as an active player. I still one more year left with the free agent like rose. I'm like raising trot. Nixon was with the Indians. And he's looking at me. Shower with you. But I'm gonna throw the first pitch out over here for socks. It was an active player. I only everyone. I history. Not only did you throw out the first pitch though, they did like the pre-game promo video. Booking narrated. Fenway. Tom yet. Either. Works where I mean, the cowboy up if I'm thanking Boston slogans. I mean that's gonna be top three top four. I do your job loss. Doing all sports most going across Asia. Boy, do your job. Those are those are huge ones. Right. You got. Early cool back then go back now, you know, three there's no country music appears like northeast, and we're just a ramping about Dirk Logan taken out with a blister. And they're all over a month. Like, bro, y'all need to cowboy F up, boom. Next day, the guy came up. What's me? And I'm like man, I don't know what it means. I grew up in LA resides in Beaumont, Texas got the handlebars shaped head just, you know, we'll just a bunch of those man like when you're horse you get back on. I, you know, we're not we weren't here six years because just gonna appreciate you guys. Next thing that blew up. We've talked a lot and you also with the Shaughnessy when you're copying don't let us win one. But we've talked a lot we have. I don't know where hubs is. We have a Yankee fan who's an absolute Astle. I don't know where he is supposed to be wearing a dunk high up. Here's you bring up bring out bring out the dunce. So that was that was his losing bet when we beat them. But the the way the city and the Yankees Red Sox relationship has changed since your year. Like, the Yankees are. We are making a mockery of this guy. We stole Franks, and we played New York New York after they won last night. Crowd was bumping. Yeah. The New York New York last night, the one eighty cents when you play. I was there the game you guys when you came back and you lost like one hundred to nothing. Are we talking music right now? What was that? Frankie is the the game you guys laws those what ninety eight nine thousand eight. That's right. That was one of the lowest moments I've had like his bosses fourth. I just sat there. It's like these guys know worst. Years this, and we're we're getting are kick. Now, we sit here we can't even think about the fact we may lose this world say, right? We're gonna win and four we're gonna win and five the Yankees are a joke. I mean, honestly, we're making a joke of everything. That's why I have an I came use a microphone. Oh, yeah. That never ever with us. I don't like I like this. I like playing New York New York, Abbott. I don't like the key stock in the middle of the world. Oh, no. I do I like to stick it to because you guys we are. Now the power to like it's been reverse that was that was one of the forgotten narratives about this whole year. Was that the Yankees made it further than the Red Sox last year? And then they hit the most home runs out of any team. And then they fucking traded for the National League MVP who hit almost sixty home runs. And then the Red Sox are the powerhouse. No. The Red Sox went into this season. Almost as an underdog to the Yankees. They they did what they always do go out and get the superstar and they go out and go, oh, we came one game shy of the World Series. What here comes John Carlos Stanton? And then they tried to play the underdog role, and it just doesn't play. We'll do it again next year. We're back with Kevin Millar. To their videos. You went from knowing who he was two weeks ago. Your story. Big time. And now, what do you do here? Real quick. I know we're live. We're live here. So then we go go catch. And there you go. The whole thing electric radio, by the way, guys do ready, insecurity. Story. I'm learning. Millar? Yes. Who wins you guys versus team obviously four right away. Why let me just be wrong us. Okay. We had Pedro Martinez but known as prime at that point three nine he he can throw ikuko net. Both best picture I've ever seen that we had full. Let me see. I'm just going through it real quick, Terry Adams, Derek Lowe. Yup. That team. I mean in federal great esteem. So this team went one hundred and eight wins the preseason. Like we thought about wins the World Series. Only lets the only lose two games on the way to win the World Series. They're not a better team than you know. I don't know. Six years. Got four. They got seven. They got thirteen. They're gonna have eighteen like the first one think about all the miserable stuff and then down three games and Yankees, the wait was done. And then, and then you know, I was joking around Scott rolling because he was on the cardinals at time we play with the Blue Jays nine. I'm like, you guys req- you guys. Try. Try. The best team in baseball that your hundred dollars. Yeah. They know. You guys didn't have an we're talking last night. That was like a Herb Brooks game Herbert series few guys where we'll take. Yeah. I think our team was tough trot. Nixon like, you know, he he wrestles alligators. You don't like J D drew actually does do that on this. I know, but he actually does wrestling. It's a great question. I think I think you'll fourteen was especially as it was and it just because of the toughness and the makeup and just like there's this guy. Well, listen, you know, the coming back against the Yankees was great. I enjoy my heart. Not jumping out of my chest. Winning eight of the ten games we play it. So fun. It's theater. Just turned twenty two. I mean, look at what's crazy. And I said this the other day if the Red Sox close us out, which I think everybody thinks that's the only thing that makes me a little nervous. It really everyone. Feels like a foregone conclusion that is the fact before last night after last night. So this is Boston great sports down in the patriots on a huge patriots fan. They are widely regarded I think as the best franchise in sports right now. I don't think anyone will redo what they're doing football with the salary cap. They five Super Bowls. If the Red Sox closes out. It's like almost the same thing. You're looking at over the same spent who's bigger in this town in the patriots radar Brady? Brady. Why do you guys do more recognizable? I think I put the brain Santa Claus extent. You know, you almost don't see 'em poppies true. Oh. That that was. Kevin Costner that was like the if have. This has got to be Jamison bushes, by the way, the answer to your question. Now, we can get a headset. If he wants to come up here the answer to that is it's more football verse baseball thing like, I mean football is king in in the country. I mean Brady Brady is number one. Number one in the in the country. Where does this? That's where hub. Just wondering was because it's a great question. And then when when you go around town with poppy, there's a rockstar aspect that it's not anymore. But he's the only guy can roll up in a pink Lamborghini with diamond rings and four thousand things going on. And you're like, that's poppy if you rolled up in a paint and everything. No. I actually right. We did back in the day. When Barcelo is getting going. We did a homerun wiffle ball derby. All right. It was sponsored by a potato chip. They got David Ortiz to do it. And we were under the impression. It's like, hey, tell David he's in the home run derby like e we're going to do it with him. He showed up with like spike, Louis Vuitton shoes. Like a while now. And I don't even know if he's on tape because he was swearing about everything he was told KFC's gonna stop swinging a bat in his ass. That is probably in for whatever reason I feel like you're more likely see him even this town. I never see Brady. I've never sent Brady I've seen everybody nursing anymore. So weird thing man, we we went through dinner Becca, then it was oh three four five. So they had their run up two to three years, and we had our little fun runs. And even three team was almost better than the old four-team, we got stung there. But we want to bring a couple of times, and he's a great guy shy. More more just kind of behind the scenes were puppies bigger personalities. This this guy David I mean, just seeing them and playing with him and just watch them into big hits. Like, he's just like a Brady in that sport. Like every time we needed it. We got it. Right. He's not gonna miss slammed at it. He he's the we talked about we're already in championship mode Rushmore bosses, forcing me, poppy is clearly the Red Sox Radi would be football. Russell. Celtics Gifty, you can have an half. I would say ninety percent of people say bird, I correctly, say Bill Russell. I mean, it's a generational thing. To the youngest person here. I agree. Haughey's or so the three I mean, really if you want to Red Sox again generation because they Ted Williams on me overtook that. Yeah. No. It's it's completely like Ted Williams was the best player in Red Sox history. But David FOX, Ted Williams doesn't have the speech. I think the stream poppy on a different level where it becomes even arguable with even the FCC's like no you can say fuck on TV. Some good some cloth. Switching gears what you're taking Machado. Everyone's talking about you think he'd survive in an east coast city. No. You know, it's funny because I think he's he's a perfect example of if he's on your team, you're you're in because the productions there, and it's like, you know, he's like our Manny, Manny how many times we get back from. Because he didn't run out a ball down the first baseline at Tampa. And w I ran with it. And then he gets I bet he's getting booed, and we're like what happened. Scumbag ask well, he potentially through traveling. He was forty in one hundred thirty. You wanna Manny up, and I think it's the same thing. Right. Is he loved by the opponent? No. Because the stuff that went on obviously in Milwaukee in LA when the foot thing, but what's like, I said, it's a different time. Because if Pedro's on that team, I'm just using him. As example, like there's a neck ball drilled. I don't give the World Series. When pedro. So it's just the way it is. And there wasn't a pitch inside that something has to happen. But if Zeus was fine with it. And you're kind of like, well, I guess they play tickle bunny after that to later. Why should I be mad? Right, right. Everyone else's pissed though. The rest of the rest of Bruce didn't take it. Didn't look good for Manny. Like, I told them the next day. Extra play. Go have fun plates greatest stage of your life. You're gonna make two hundred nine hundred million dollars off season. How fun great time. You're not that guy. Like, Manny was he's not the tough guy. He's a nice kid. But now it's gonna get this villain. Look by the by the antics or not that's all I'd say Birlik, I always one of my favorite, man. He's thirty. You hear so many many stories? I remember rehabbing again, what's true. What's not what's reported? But. He was rehabbing in Pawtucket. Didn't wanna come back up. The cook. You know, the end of hairdresser. I hear a guy. I wanna go back. And it was like believable. No one even that's Manny being Manny, I heard there was one where he when he was staying at the Ritz, and he gave his silver slugger award in the trash bag to the people at the front desk. And that's in the hold onto it. They want to throw it away. He never told them. What was in it? You just gave him a bag of trash. They wanted to throw it away realize it's silver slugger awards. What I don't know because poppy Sol's going back. Bobby like we walk in and DeRosa drills. Like, well, I got like a Keith Lockhart jersey and Chipper Jones jersey, man. Poppies got like silver slugger thing protecting like opening the door on Hank Aaron award MVP of the World Series. Best in the history of baseball war. Like he goes are real awards, and they're just kind of like scattered. They're like door stoppers. And you know, what I'm saying like these are like big league awards. Here you go. This is day, Hank. Aaron here the best in the World, War II and everything Kim folks here. So we're figuring out like Keith Keith, folks. We're figuring out like. Keith, folks. He. So we're not do we have double headsets. We haven't like a tumor union point. Hey, we got left the tutoring. The whole crew. Now you wanna have long game. You guys bring it back getting the whole. About four. It's going on. Dave nice to meet you, man. Thanks. I love that. It's a fucking handshaking. We were actually talking before the hand help who needs the handheld embers. Oh, yeah. Yeah, reunion. I don't know how this up. We were talking before MVP's Jaren. I about the I mean, probably the greatest closer performance is that you're the best closer performance ever in the playoffs. What he should have won the World Series MVP. Yeah. That's that's just a straight of anybody else. He probably wins the AL CS if poppy Danko bananas like doing it that year. Yeah. So interesting career in. I'm curious your back in Boston. You hear Napoli sent that over? Are you? Are you here? Just what do you in town for just to watch promote? And what are you doing? Hit the on button on the box. Now. Number live. All right. So what do you account folks in the house? Listen. Kevin on the month. We showered. So what are you in town for actually lived here? Until now you do move back about a year ago. I work with the Red Sox and the player development minor league side, where do you live north station that you're? So I wanted to see. Where are you from originally, Texas? All right now, your Texas guy because my recollection is obviously one of the great postseasons of all time best closer all time. Then it got a little animosity with the Red Sox when he left, right? A little bit. You get a little bit. By the way, I'm not busting because I say the same thing the barstool people I own a fuck with the people who are reading on busting my ass out here. So I'm surprised so back back to everything good with red sock fans. Then right time heals everything. So after a while, you know, it's I changed the way I thought the city forgot the way I was so I by the way, I didn't hate it for those. And I was telling these guys about it. It's something I would thousand percent say to like people read barstool sports, if there are up my ass, and like, oh, you're not. And I get those a lot like you're not the same guy used to be I'm into Barzel for fifteen years. So people like you used to be better ten years ago. And I'd hit him with the well. I don't care what Johnny Burger King thinks at all. I would use that line. I would stand by that. It's like I want you guys a World Series. So get off my. That's what I would do. I'd stand by a love that line. Let's great great to have you back in town with union game. Yeah. It is. It is. I heard we're throwing out the first pitch today. Oh, so was that breaking news. Pitcher. I guess I love that. Is that really breaking news that we just got there? Or is there already allocated? Goodnight. Yup. We can say it we're bringing without. Our major across the bottom of the screen right now. Got folk ambery Papi Pedro Varitek. And then Kevin Keith Miller more. By the way. But this game's over why even play why even play this game. It's fucking don't fuck is that if the Red Sox win this World Series, and they go to a seven game World Series in the future. They can be like our game one. We'll do four. Sevens. Right game six we can do thirteen. And then if there's a game several bring back the eighteen how often do you guys see each other like just members of the team the championship team? Do you guys have like reunions get together? Like what's the deal with that? It's not as much you think because we all you're married. You get family. You're going next kind of lives everywhere. But you always have a relationship when these events are spring training run them like you said a lot of lot of guys stay in the game. The really rich guys don't have to stay in the game. The guys that are fake rich like us. We need the money. You gotta stay in the game. Listen, we were talking about that earlier though, like poppy certainly doesn't have to stay in the game. And a rod and guys like that. They're everywhere. Now that doesn't make sense to me I made a half a billion dollars. You wouldn't hear from Kevin? We literally like why do they do it? It makes who actually we're talk happily. We were not fast. Your salaries like Netflix ninety million dollars. The core of the problem is you sit home and retirement after well, you get fucking bore. Yeah. It's like you can only play so much golf. You know, you gotta get away. And if if you for route yell sometimes you have to get away is there a thirst was Bali. Like, are you like I've missed people changing my name, and I wouldn't ever see. I never see him not him. Very. That's why he's on TV. Yeah. Personality. So I hadn't had only I had. I'm not smart for the whole thing. I keep him like TV what are you talking about? There wasn't a network around the right? Like, I got released we go to here. But honest guy the networks now give opportunities for players and former players like the NFL network launched. We'll be network launch -ly. So it's good to keep guys in the game. Right. Got John Smoltz during the World Series. He's excellent by the one believable. Right. So it's good to have that. And that keeps it kind of fresh. But at the end of the day by made a half a million dollars. You wouldn't. Yeah. As a part of us like yo believe that he says the same thing. He's like when I sell Barcelo, I'm going to go to an island. You're never gonna see me again. He'll derby. You're better. I just wanna show right on the dope. Because I want to be that guy role. You're talking to hang with lackey lack eat like is money growing out of his ear on like a plane. No, he well, he put a new teeth. So seventy new teeth that is a lot of money. I mean, if he's not taking care of your next door neighbor that nobody is no he is. I need you need you because the more month. Why are they like a bunch of guys? Let me focus. I don't key key word. We all were this is this is what I'd tell her was rich. I've made three millionaires myself. My ex wife. It is. Gonna hit a quick break. Okay. Five only fireballs we asked this question. We're here youthful Alan Embree couple of guys from the team you might have heard of four World Series. Who's better you guys are this guys? We just asked Millar he gave a quick answer. These guys are these go they're younger better better than like say. I mean say we could be miles an hour now on I mean, it's ridiculous smoke too, though, you were registered you're also that guy by the way like to face whenever Embree came out. We'll nervous myself. And I remember. Because I didn't know where it was going. Around under seventy and just stare at them and go. Yeah. So you gotta say this team. I yeah. Millar was very much. But I think he would answer. No how to what for his team. Correct. I don't know. It's it's definitely not like a slam dunk answer either way. No. I mean hundred games one hundred hundred. Right now. Despite movie is going to be the MVP the best player in the field is still poppy though. I mean, yeah. I so I mean that is a difference maker the way that I love kimbrel. But the way he's close games. Whereas the way this guy close games are not really close close. I mean, nobody was one of those rotations though. I mean, you go you go from Pedro to schilling to d low that was you take that over what the Red Sox are working with now, especially considering the situation the guys Chris sale is would pitched out of his mind this year, but you have to factor in the injury. You have to factor in the way like everything as it stands right now. You have all these might be the best pitcher of all time. I would he's actually who is the most confidence. But again, if you're going one on one like E, I granted schilling had the injury. But showing the folk would be that would be my that's who. I if you could do anybody pitch in that if you're saying who do you want up? It's not. So I mean, you definitely want this this lineup here. The wears you wears you down. But it's just constant. Yeah. They have guys that can that can go up there and hit the ball anywhere. And you get like Benintendi stepping up JJ at a big series last year. When you have those guys where there's no gaps in the lineup. There's no relief pitcher. And if you make a mistake chances are they're going to get it. Yeah. And it shows because all these games from like the sixth on this. I don't know what the exact stat now is but in the Houston counting this it's got to be about seventeen to Red Sox. Like the games are close through five. And then they just kind of pull away the grind it into the ground and just grind. Well, it's gone. It's gone from starter. Going seven eight innings to your closer to you wear them down for science for Senate trouble. You've got lever comes on. And I mean, there's nobody thinks that is do you think that that is a trend that's going to be reversible at any point? I'd like to think so I mean starters are worth more than five innings dot. Yeah. And that the middle. I mean. That'll be think started you got started coming out of the pen because they're your best arm at that point of the year that the manager trust, right? I mean, ours was different. Yeah. And going even a memory in those playoffs. Did you like I could be making like? Some games where you pretend to two three innings. I feel like I mean, they don't do that day. That's the thing that doesn't that doesn't win three innings once or twice in four. But it also it has to do with the game is kinda changed and target. It's funny to say only being out, you know, what ten twelve years now. But the game has changed the way the pitchers changed and I work with the minor league reliever. So I see what they're doing. And I don't agree with all of it. Right. But it's you know, it's just the way the teams are growing. They're young players. They train different. That's way, more weights less running. And you know, I don't know if that has something to do with the starters on going a few innings but back in the day the starters, we didn't have a pitch count. You know when I came up the starter even to the minor leagues. I don't remember pitch count. You know, we were out there for a hundred twenty thirty pitches. You know, we're going to Nate innings if needed do you think those training regimens can explain why everyone out of the bullpen? Just I mean, they're they're change up ninety five miles an hour. These days they this is a generation where they've grown up. Up with the radar gun. You know, so they grew up with the computers and YouTube. They see everybody's throwing one hundred. So they're taught they can't go to college. If you're not throwing ninety plus right? You know, they're not looking for location anymore. They want big arms big bodies. And they'll try and teach them the pitch along the way right back in the day. It was like just get your three outs. Right because your bread and butter was the change. So I mean, you've got guys now it's like if you're not throwing ninety five plus you have no shot at pitching out of a major league bullpen, and that's what they asked me. Now, do I think I could pitch. I don't know. But when you watch pitchers go out there when they make their pitches. The chances of the success rate is still very high. You know, when you if you throw a hundred down the middle these guys a hands man, they're going to get that can time at jet doesn't matter. If you're an everything moved together, if everyone throwing harder the the batteries are not like, they're not seeing it. So they're using those fast balls. What about we've talked? We're obviously, I don't know. Well, you work for the Red Sox. Would you consider? What was your team growing up? Like are you a fan of? Anybody or you can't be one to play the game. I mean, I've played for so many teams. I know but here now though. Yeah. And I'm feel very blessed that I wanted to championship with the Red Sox. It was the one to win. Otaly otherwise by find my stuff online, right? Keith yesterday. This is the only time of year that my shits worth. So. Everybody knows it Saturday. So you guys going into this? Do you think the series is over we s? Yes, Kevin attitude. You think any chance the Red Sox don't win this? We're talking about it yesterday. They'll see us was World Series this year. I think that. I think it's going to go five. Yeah. That's almost last night was the deal everyone saying that I feel like you wanna say four, don't you? I have this everyone keep saying. We'll keep saying five like out of some respect like the Red Sox. No disrespect much. The dodgers of the worst thing. They've played in these playoffs. Not even close to being near the two teams battling alias all year long all heavyweight title, piss everybody. Everybody else was playing weaker competition. Don't give as fun. We're we're asking some of the same questions. But this is a question that I've harped on for like seven eight year Clayton Kershaw. Yeah. I'm going back to I I have a new question. I'm going back. I can't get over and in when he was Bumgarner verse Kershaw. I was so hard on Bumgarner Saint this is the guy that everyone should be talking about. This is the one I'd want the postseason struggles that Kershaw has continued to have to you does that taint his legacy for a pitcher that a lot of people. I think would say he's the best pitcher of the generation. I can't accept that. Because of what he does in the postseason. Yeah. I mean, it's it comes a point. But part of that is some of these great pitchers. Don't get to the postseason. You know? I mean, what's different about the postseason from regular season. Nothing. Sometimes that's better than got a guy going tonight who had problems on the only game on television. Which is that that and that's pressure and better teams. So I mean, I actually think Kevin nailed it like power pitching plays in the postseason. Like, the starters, the big guys the Bumgarner, the the schilling Beckett's we can just take a fastball and jam it down your face where I'm not sure Kershaw has that definitely does. And that's why that's why when we were talking about the Red Sox and the Felker and masters of the world where like this team can't win a championship with this bullpen. It's like you're not going to see if there's if there's seven guys in the bullpen. You're not going to see the bottom part of that. You're going to see the starters, you're gonna see the top four top five guys. And then you're going to see the stars. And we've seen evolve. The we've seen Rick bordello? We've seen Chris sale. I'm pretty sure Rodriguez. Well, yeah. Oh yesterday. Yeah. Threes in the postseason when when we were in. There was Mike Keith in myself, otherwise it was our star. That was our philosophy. Get us to the six and good. Yeah. Do you know it's also we were all older bullpen kimbrel. I mean, he's been around seems like forever still pretty young guy. I don't know how much playoff experience has. But we had three guys had been. We'll Timor's won the World Series, whatever. But we had experienced right? You believe that by the way, the tipping off the pitches thing the gong. Nick gonyea calling saying with tip off. That's why was struggling. No, no. I can tell you. No heart. No, you'll be careful. Heart. No. But that couldn't have helped his. No. But it was that's what I make. Go warfare. It is amazing the Mico mouth a little. I got a big hit that same. But it's amazing. What one small thing can do for your confidence? It can do for your deliver your mechanics and all that stuff. So I mean, yeah, I do believe it is like he was getting hit. He would just watching. What's right? Even I said to you. He doesn't look like his cough because he kept going to the breaking pitch. He didn't have confidence in his fast. Yeah. But I mean, like, I don't know how much, you know, fixing pitch tipping helps when you're not throwing strikes. They weren't. They weren't always been lights out since that conversation kinda rocky before you guys are throwing out first pitch tonight. Right. This is gonna sound like what the change up. Do. You have any. Do you have any nerves at all better? No, not a ridiculous shit. Outs. It I've done it a few times over the last few years. And because a you have those people standing in the back you have a current player catching you. So I would love to be aired out. But I'm like, I don't know if it's one off the backstop. I don't know if it's going forty feet. He's gonna take it right in the mouth that would kind of a power. I will do like. We'll do like tonight. We'll have a generous Arkan I was gonna just mic drop. I don't know if I can get it there. I love. All the time. You're fine. Bring gas Patrick's on the line. What do you got Patrick? I'm wondering if you guys have ever heard of ancient Roman triumphs pretty much what they are. When ancient Roman general would win they go back to the streets of Rome in a chariot and go around town to cheering fans and kind of celebrating their win. And oftentimes they'd have the conquer general. There reminded me a lot of hubs. And that the Red Sox went to New York killed the Yankees. And then hubs has been put in chains at brought around Boston to massive crowds. It's pretty unbelievable have never seen anything like it hubs. What do you think? Are you a h Greek? I don't hate they should Roman triumph. Sterling don't hate that light ref. I mean that is literally exactly what's happened. Someone someone called me Jesus Christ of Yankees fans. Go for they're saying I got two weeks ago. I might like twitted cool. I might change my Twitter bio that that's get resurrection. Going on for you. Well, here's the thing. Jesus. That's a fake story guy died religion stoop. Aren't you Catholic? Says the Catholic man of the group when it when it when it plays like all right, but it doesn't school. Sure. Yeah. When when Hanukkah starts. It's a girl Jewish Jewish. So you are. I mean, you're taking it on the chin last night as the fucking big Jim I saw as the electric chair ended last night. They just like zoomed in on hubs. Just like why kill myself. I was hoping they did that. Because I was like I was like Franken shaking his head. You were in the dunce cap. And the thing about the electric chair last night. Let me pull up this fucking guy, by the way, let me sidetracked before we keep making fun of hopes. This guy on Twitter. This fucking loser was chirping about the electric chair, and which is now being dubbed the electric factory. I think just for you guys. We should call it electric battery. What do you mean? Like, I think when it's if it was just me like being Clem just sitting on the chairs here electric chair. Correct. Correct. Yeah. Okay. So Mikey Marino is this guy's name. Michael Marino at Mikey. With two wise Marino, he's a marketing and media executive, and he was just going in about the idea of the electric chair being like who would watch this. So we were barstool sports got the top Twitter moments placement for the World Series for the electric factory. We gotta last night too. I knew we. Well, this is twenty three hours ago game one game on sorry. And Michael Marino says watching a video of sports personalities watching the game at the bar. I can't comprehend this for the life of me and yet fans will complain about how long the game takes. And yet they'll watch this nothing at all to connect nothing at all somebody chimed in saying marketing and media executive with his finger on the pulse. And he said, yes, nothing at all slightly amusing about people watching a full telecast of people on a bar. Guess I missed the good old days of actually being at the bar in person. I mean, the electric chair is not even that novel of a concept that we came up with the idea of an alternative broadcast on a two screen viewing second screen viewing. Where for years people have been like, I don't wanna listen to Joe buck shot Joe buck, I like him. But I want to listen to the the main broadcasters. I'd rather listen to fans that's all we're doing now. Yeah. I guess there are times where there's a law or whatever commercial broadcast. But for the most part, it's like when I getting to watch like, I was filming you guys night going wild. Dave, Dave commentary the fans like breathing down your neck hubs in the dunce. I mean that was it's as entertaining as the game is, and it's like you can watch you could be a fan of team a fan of our sold put it together. It's it's a very simple concept where you like there's so many times you wanna watch a game with your friends, but like people do not can't get the other. I'm watching a game. Like, you're you got the excitement your your you have to be home alone that night the place, you're not put it on my laptop. It's not taking up your TV screen. I don't I don't get to go to the. Barney more. I don't get to get together with the guys like trying to be quiet while the kids are asleep and pop it on and I get to watch it with these morons. It's like great for people like me. So fuck Mike Marino should game one. I think it was like our highest ever three hundred fifty thousand four thousand say man, it's not. Everyone loves it and wants to see me die along with. I bring it back can't get hope people like this. I used to do it. But like I've once I've become an adult I stopped doing really people like their own things. Fuck if you like doing whether or not I'd watch lecture. I don't know. But well, let me tell you with strangers. But like like I watched because my friends, but if it was fringe, I don't know if I'd watch. I don't watch it. Yeah. If they don't like something other people may like it. You were not the end of what is good. But this is not even one of those like this is like the future there are companies based on this. There are like this. There will be a day where you know. I don't know right now, there's all sorts of issues with rights and shit like that there will be a day where barstool calls a ballgame. Like straight up. You know what I mean? I mean, there's going to be a day, but we're going to be wearing like three D head gears and watching football games that way like ask players watching them. Get help. Football football. It'll be dead by the next level would be able to put the actual game in like the bottom right hand corner us. That would be unreal. But to bring it full circle like the x factor here is. Whenever there was a lull. It was like let's look at ups, you know. So you really are the ancient Roman triumph? You gotta wear the L. I mean, there's some people can't do it. I actually like to my home. But I don't think a lot of people could do what I'm doing right now. It's something you get credit for people like down. Listen, you're gonna are you going to the game? Right. So listen, it's hard to to right. But the last two games we were. I was not at the game. But yes, you're out you're out of sports bar. And then like I. Endure. Your electric electric chair experiences in my life. Like, I I went to the bar in the Bronx watching Yankee games a Mets fan. I might as well have had done tat on. And like I put in perspective all the time like my old job, whereas cold calling and shit. And I'm in a group chat with like, my best friends, and I'm like yell this fucking hell like after game one. And they're like yo shot up counting the mar. And it's like we're about to get in the busy season and shit. And like it could be worse. Martinis that that being set guy? Hold my speech. What did you do? Now just has I asked I asked him what his career ninety. We looked it up nine zero Mike Napoli did he played rounding up at eighty two point two. But well a couple of thirty year bomb bomb years. Yes, socks. It was a lot of like two three billion. He played for eleven years. A lot of two three million dollars. And then he had three with the socks for like sixteen fifteen and seventeen hands the bag, Mike Napoli, nothing. He's doing well. On the problem is he's probably spent eighty one dollars one firebomb. Are you are you done hubs? What do you mean? It was just like the first two games. And that were done. Would you always go LA? What a stupid thing this Dallas Braden know that you'll hear it on the run down. I don't want to spoil it. But it was so well done because because Dan was like, well, listen like going out to L A like that's going to be a lot better than Boston. And hope just goes Dallas. Brayden awaits I thought they would maybe take see you call it stupid. I I call it peaceful. I thought they would maybe take mercy on you you like it's already done to. Relatively new. The only thing I'll say. Fucker cell phone live Riddy told me he wanted to have an axe man. Come through my red ruse any specifics CPI. I thought maybe he was. Door beat him to death. I will say as much as there's good and all this exposure followers. You know, whatever Dave the hate from Dave is definitely real. Yeah. I mean, you're you're now in the boat with me, but he. He hates you. But like he doesn't hate he had a change of tuna game too. Element. Done change tune it, quote, unquote changes. I mean, he actually still hates me. But he was just like this is good for your Brent like the right? So, but I do think, you know, you are you're you're firmly in the boat with me where it's like, it's the hates real like there's like maybe a modicum of respect, and hey, it's good for business. But I think he hates us. I'm in the boat. That's all I care about the boat. I'm not I'm not outside the building. Then the company, and then we on a hell of a ride coming up with these next like five to ten years, whatever it is. So going to be tough on you than Dave was well, Dallas bring just straight at Hazel. He's he's just like he's if I was like joining a frat like I never joined I didn't I met all my buddies my freshman year college. We didn't do a frat like this is basically that like Dallas. I'll be honest. I give you a lot of props for that. Like. I mean, he he he almost ended your life with leading drinking your one one or two drinks away from the hot auto going on. Yeah. I would do that. Like I'd be like all right, listen. I'm done douse. When I woke up four horsemen, John. I remember I don't remember if I told this, but I won't go on Sunday morning. The first night out with Dallas the first morning after they were throw up all on the side of my bed. My wherever I had to throw like half, my calls IRS, just throw up everywhere, not clean it out. And then I have this big bottle ibuprofen. Eight hundred milligrams. They can cure any headache like that. They're unbelievable happened since college probably way overcooked, they're hurting me more than helping me these days, but the pill bottle was all over the floor. I must have just like tried open. And I was like Offutt and I throw it if a mate had walked in. She was gonna kill myself. She she they were doing there would have been cops like they're trying to revive me. And I was like what the hell imagine. If like, it was a murder like the coroner's sitting there like a clipboard or something and you do like Joe, John snow at all. Pretty cool article. Can we get del sprayed on the phone that motherfucker because I saw he was talking shit about me to talk about my sports fan among dial din. So I'd like to yell at him along with hub. So let's see if we can get him on the line when we come back. I'm gonna continue to make money fans because they're grasping at straws here about the fact that I had to Yankee. So yes. The head of public. Of course, you I don't fucking. We we come back if seen Dave saw on the street day coming out of the game. Was that Chris young the tall pitcher big bird? I think you like despise him more than I've ever seen. Anyone despise anyone when you guys played them in the World Series. Yeah. Throws like thirty five miles. And I I mean, I was like Well Chris Young's pitching, you can absolutely put an ink the Mets will win managers. Look down my throat. I laughed at just like this guy. Looks like a dentist and he's just dominating seven foot tall bird dentists who throws twenty miles an hour and each shut down. I am joined by the one and only lady fight over. That was very unenthusiastic reading and Ellie. Hey, hey, what's up? All right. I'm working with nothing patented what's up. I don't. I don't have energy. Patented what's up? So I was doing what he did. Well, you usually have a lot more energy. But you don't at the moment because somebody went out last night and somebody apparently gets hangovers at the what ripe age of twenty two. I I don't wanna talk about it who doesn't get. I think that's just blank ad doesn't get hangovers have been the same for me as long as I've been drinking. I never woke up when I was seventeen pride item bushy tailed, and I don't wake up now being like. I wake up feeling like legitimately go out and drink. And usually if I mixed especially if I mixed rather, I'm really fucked up the next thing, I'm useless. Like, I just this is me today. I've been completely useless because we didn't even go out. We were just in Daniels living room to to Seoul drunk drinking wines. Yeah. The to get really bad hangovers because I allergic to wheat. So I don't really like drink beer lot. I'm allergic to be. I don't know. What it is. I say we I don't know what it is specifically in beer. But when I was I don't know probably twenty or something like that. I tested for all kinds of allergies. I I had a I had a bad liver. And my doctor was like both because you're trying to fight extra hard for to fight, beer, whatever. 'cause you're allergic to it. And I was like, yeah. Okay. And just drank it for like eight more years. And then now I switched to liquor your parents. And it was like a totally different waking up that I would have three day hangovers when I was like twenty two here. You're still doesn't for me. I still can't I'm unusable the next day from a hangover USA Ellie said she was going to run out of here and peak maybe I only ever peaked hangover only puke from hangovers, I'll never puke when I'm drunk. I only will peak if I'm like real real hung over my body's like get get it out. You know, listen, I told you Ivonne tiered. I'm like, I'll hold the hair. Now, you gave me a you said you had a rubber Baxter. That's kind of the same thing. I mean, very very differently. Very different. You know, when the point is I didn't want you to get vomit in your hair still think that that's a generation accounts. Probably. Yeah. No. I don't know. I never had. I'm that person. You say that I'm lying, but I never had hangovers like there were days where I would be like a little tired after. But not to say like I felt like complete dump now if I drink I'm around thirty it hit, and I'm just gonna useless. Yeah. No my dad, I think once I think maybe there's a lull. And then once you become an adult real adult like with kid shit like that, you know, mortgage, whatever the fuck does the ones become an adult you stop getting hangovers 'cause my dad's like do Jo jumping rope at like six in no matter what happened Elliott seen a picture of his dad. No, no. We need a show Elliott picture his dad hot. Really, I think once you have. Oh got a seat. Yes, sir. Once you have children, you just like life is like fucked up enough. You don't have time for hanging. I agree. You just can't do. I mean, I think my dad never gets hangovers. He's hoping he like never gets them. He's probably puking in the morning. God not Mr. Freidel Burke's too hot for that. I have gotten. You've gotta show me a picture. You got your overselling? He was a handsome men overselling hand area Henson. He's very sexy. He's got the the older the older, man. Like, you know, the shit. They've got their shit together. They've lived life. They know stuff. Yeah, cop. He. He did. Him at a bar one time we were out together. And someone asked him if he was my bodyguard. So he looks like a cop that's an echo. The thing is like I'm twenty two. So like, everyone seems like like all guys are like older guys to me around here. Like, I just see a guy in a nice coat. I'm like you've got it together code on. Super-low if you don't show up in sweatpants and you'll we'll like we'll beat you down to that. Where it's like, whoa. He dresses nice. Jeans on today that he got for free. Well, you should know that Elliott was saying earlier that men are just terrible except the minute Barcelo sport. I did actually say, yeah. Because I just mean like in Dane terms of dating because men are just so boring to me, usually, but the guys here so interesting, it's a real problem super, not interesting. But like you entertain like, I have good conversations with the people here. And I don't want to jump off the Chrysler building. I only have conversations into microphones aside from that pretty silent. Yeah. It's pretty close to true. He wanted to be true to to maintain his Mississippi. Five. But no, look if you gals thrown out compliments at four thirty on a Friday, four fifteen whatever fucking time, you wish it was four thirty. Five I'll take him. I just just disagree. Well, he's going to do. We're gonna get weird on this Friday. It's four zero five as John informed us not to be confused with four thirty. So we've gotta waste ago. There's three of us in here, author you're single off three claim to know tons about dating. Now, really know anything about dating. No nothing, but you'll get with that. You'll get three different dating perspectives from three very different people. Yeah. I I said on my tweet. I was like you should probably full disclosure only. Listen to Liz. Because I I mean, no offense. But not I mean, just because I'm older doesn't necessarily mean. Like, you're. I mean, I m y me for sure. Have it together? So we're taking your dating calls. Any weird comments? It's going to be talking about sports with Alli because Elliot's not fanatics we're gonna March madness with Elliot girl. Girl in the office always wins. That fucking stereotype busy out really not trust you pick based on the outfits that you like colors. Ask them. A word. But what we do that. If you have your 'cause we will take them for the next hour because at five o'clock final intro. Your your Hassan interview that you got going on Hassan Manashe morning. He's the fucking man. He's got a new show Patriot Act with Osama Nasha coming out on Sunday on Netflix doing a double episode on Sunday. And then it goes week to week after that really bucking the trend of a drop them all at once which I appreciate because I stayed up until four last night watching bodyguard because all the is with the bodyguard knows Whitney Houston, which is what I was starring guy Robb stark. I give it was good. It was. It was good. Yeah. It was. Okay. I really really liked it. I by the end, I was kinda on it. So I don't regret the six hours. I spent watching it wasn't. I'm not giving it. I'm not getting a must watch till four thirty. I can't do that. Can't do that either. Unless I'm out and doing things if I'm watching. Out. Oh fucking night or you in your genes at four thirty.

Let's hear it. Hey, how you doing bud? I've been giddy for like six hours. Okay. Well, so I don't know if you guys noticed the Vegas nights playing the lightning today. Okay today is Nevada. And now, this is something you've invented today. Oh, no. What are you? Don't disrespect Nevada Taylor. The day's parade. John the last time the knights played on the today. One seven nothing. Okay. I had a little tip. I won't tell any the the lightning had a nice night last night. Very nice like six AM. If you wanna lock something in Nevada day put the nights in. Now. I I'm shaking came and talk right here. You know, you're Mushin Nevada. Oh, no. The nights just tweeted out. Hey, we've never lost on the vodka. Oh, man. It's it's just we're clear nights are one year old. So it happened one still wanna know. Okay. I time it happened. This the excitement you have for a day that lasts like ten. Oh, this is like the best day of the Nevada days going viral right now as we speak. I'll come you don't know anything about Nevada. What is the modern day? Is it literally day Nevada, or is it just this parade and everything? Okay. What what's the history in about a day? How long has? Swats video. They have a nice band a lot of people come to the parade like any day high school pep rallies. Just the. Get onto goddamn train Nevada day. I just have so much money on this game. Canco like, it's it's a little scary. I got giddy about it today. But how much money have you lost in your lifetime? Oh, I don't keep track. Keep trying. Keep trying to stop gambling. But I have a significant amount on this. If you keep track you stop gambling seems like a reasonable thing to do. I've lost fifty grand in my lifetime. I'm just not going to gamble anymore. If you don't keep the numbers, you never know. And you keep going. Ignorance is bliss. I guess is strong argument. I I don't quite literally. I don't look at my Bank statements. I if I if I knew how much money spent on drinking, I probably wouldn't stop. But. Drinking. I mean, your liver practically came out of your body and your subject so go back to your beautiful show here, but Nevada is keep keep an eye out. I want I want like a bet I don't wanna money bet with you. I want what are you going to do if Nevada day falls to one whatever you want because I know happen. I will legit to any old statement. Get a pen out. Gives me carp on mean, you see. Definitely knobs right now. Right. 'blanche might I be the move to go. Like, this is such a lock. It's unbelievable. You really confident. I haven't seen this Cleveland news. That's something that. Scary. It's scary. I said something earlier too. I don't know what it was. I I I'm the kind of guy who would go away study abroad in England come back. The shit out of that. I started talking exactly like who I'm talking to almost immediately. I'm a chameleon. I my my larynx. My voice box is a community just wants to be in on the party. You talk weird my voice, she wants to be on the part of that's. And you talk with the back of the last time that you were like, oh, this is definitely going to happen was when the Packers played the forty Niners. And the the moment I saw God damn it Marty people are tweeting about hashtag the today. No one's doing that for the Packers. This is the thing in the lots of hashtag pack. No, no parades. Watch this. Okay. I show you on it's on the fucking school board. Happy Nevada die people who'd be giddy in their absolute giddy. What are the lightning do last night where they were out till six AM? I I don't talk about my tip. But yeah, they will having a good time a little personally believe in in the Vegas hangover. Yes. But I think the biggest thing was a myth fertile 'cause they're athletes athletes, get hung over second of all because Vegas is a place. You don't get hung over. Oh, I also forgot the games at three o'clock in Vegas. That's primetime. Hangover like really comes into that cell apparently Nevada day has been around since October or a commemorates the state's October thirty first eighteen sixty four mission into the union would flow. It was Halloween holiday in nineteen thirty three it's been around a long time. Because no other words to that. I mean, I it has there's one one game. Seven. The avalanche athlete hangover to like it. Just reminds me of the fake story of Alan Iverson and the Denny's at like four AM and it went put up fifty to noon game. There was I think my uncle says he bet on Miami one time because he was Maryland Ray Lewis was out at a party with him until like six not with him. But like he saw him at a frat party into like six AM. And then very Louis went on at twenty tackles or something like that the only way. If you just hook up tonight and just flush yourself out athletes have good access to medicine. So in that way, could be a lot of shit. A lot of shit even better than you get hooked up to two steroids. For instance, anyone on steroids. You'll get a hangover. That's a fact it's. You you'd get right back out there. This is going to be an all time game. I will tell me what you want. I will do it because they will not lose games on at six you say that, but you're supposed to shave your head. And I don't think an unknown haircuts and your hair cut Mohan. I shaved I. It was supposed to be somebody from the office was supposed to cut your hair. Right. I don't know. That's right. I forgot I forgot you. Well, John vets so car blocks of mardi Bush means nothing. This has a legit. I'll do whatever you right now. We. Cameras were also on camera when you said, oh, you anybody anybody from the office can cut my hair, I'm wrong. I'll do both. I'll double. I'm so obscene watch I watched three parades. So they've from the past three years. That's what I was doing. Today, he watches walking six hours. Hopefully, they'll it's listen. Probably right. The this interests such a level weirdo is one of those things you give you could buy anything. You hope why actually you know, what you fucked digs ockers listening. The monster kid, I'm telling you like there's just no way they're gonna come out at least win this like four one was this spread one and a half like every game every five and the money's moving towards like it's going growing on them. What about if you're wrong L E? Punches you in the face? Okay deal. Oh, okay. Little little office slap bang hurt. You though. I intentionally didn't. I I mean, I would break my or a slap. Okay. What about how slap you? You can say whatever you want. I will wear. On the record. All right. We're sitting here talking about your phones on a national radio. That's on the record. I just wanna make sure that to get. Yeah. Okay. Definitely. I wouldn't put I have over like. I have like seven hundred dollars on this game. That's how come came. What do you usually how high is unusual bets? A lot more like normal like one fifty two that's still a fucking don't have considering how much you gamble. I have a good relationship. With the bookie very good relation rolling out like ten thousand dollar day Portnoy bets. Of course, not I wish. All right. So you lose Elliott's. A slap you across the face to win win for all be wearing loose clothes while she does it. All right. I have some fucking potential really breaking news here. I don't know. How real it is. I don't know how to check. How real it is. I'm just going to assume it's real because I'm dumb. Dave Portnoy, just Instagram that he's been nominated for one of the hunter or been recognized as one of the hundred most handsome faces of two thousand eighteen I wear are.

No just some of the stuff that he's done some of the comedy stuff that he's done he did punch drunk. Love was very well done but that was like twenty years ago years ago. Line Chris. It's just a scooby doo sound. He can't find his mic to talk to you. What are you talking about it? The last of the end of his terrible. I don't agree with you. Punch drunk love was how long ago. Let's let's see I also. I liked that movie. I don't know the name of it. But the movie where he He played some comedian leading. Who was dying? A famous comedian. Funny people came out in two thousand to start out. That was a long time ago and twenty people I think it was like two thousand fourteen man.

Mike's on Mike's off in the APP is dead. I believe that's too bad so we'll get to this fruit. Loops experimented a moment but How do we want to set up? This Steve Bella L. A.. Check sound what do you think it sounds like. I mean you've seen as Hairdo. Obviously he looks shockingly different than his father. Well let's that's explained to the audience. What he looks like for those who have not seen? What Steve Bella check looks like and may have you may have only him for the first time Over the weekend and when they were playing against Houston and he was on the sidelines. He's shaggy not the Scooby Doo character although also that yeah but he's just gave shaggy a mullet but I don't even mean gene. I mean his hair and everything has shaggy. Indie does have mullet. There was a party in the back. No doubt okay so this is the front of but definitely a party. And what do you imagine that he sounds like a totally different like a young guy because he looks young but this is the first time I've heard him speak and here is the sound on the came. Out of Steve Bella checks mouth. It is shocking. I don't know I haven't really thought about how it correlates things like his dad. I think that that's what they're so about the memory of Your First Football Chore When He First Poachers and yes you do yeah. I got a couple of memories. He's the same mm-hmm Avalos a fall far from the tree the DNA the DNA of boring press conference has been a hand me down through the family. I was so hoping he sounded like actual Shaggy Shaggy. Scooby Doo singer. Shaggy wasn't me. That song came out a couple of years ago. Right huge. It would have been closer if you said grownups happened to me is that I only saw that movie last year and I thought it was noon. And that's that's what happened to me age also not familiar with what Adam Sandler. It looks like now. We'll get the Irishman hangs in the movie. People look younger older. I WanNa talk about this experiment that we're going to do in the next segment. Because yesterday sue guides read an and finally it said all fruit loops tastes the same. They're just different colors and sue. God's got so angry at that. He insisted that he could tell the difference between all the colored fruit loops and he specifically cited how much he loves the grape fruit loop so we bought loops and we got a sixteen foot long receipt from uh-huh CVs just from the one box of fruit loops and we're GONNA cut out a bit of a sports science study and see if sue God's can accurately tell us which color and flavor he's eating while he is blindfolded. Okay you guys were blown away by it as well though. Weren't you like and maybe it has something to do with the visual. Where from eating a grapefruit loop loop I feel like it tastes grape? Perhaps I will say I was not surprised by it at all because I've had fruit loops and there is no difference in taste gots. Wendy when do you eat through loops individually while do it all the time. What do you mean I put my hand in the box without milk and I just eat them like one time I throw my mouth? Did you know fruit. Loops was spelled with two owes like in both words. It's not F R U. I T it's F. R. O.. Ot L. O. O.. P. AS Roma's I'm learning so much. Put It on the poll. Did you know that fruit loops. The word fruit was spelled with just owes real quick. I I also want to do another study because I have one of these. XFL football's okay. Hear me out. Let's make you an NFL safety. Say Eric Weddell keep in mind. When Tim Ryan was calling this game? It was raining so the the Duke Duke was a bit of a darker. Shame right. I'm more Jackson. In this case study. That would be a perfect name for a white football. The football is a tad darker closer to what it looks like with the Baltimore Ravens uniform. And I'm Amore Jack. That was a stunningly good race joke. That was unafraid raid by students shining moment in terms of race talk not competing against much. I am holding all high and tight. I am Lamar Jackson wearing wearing a dark uniform so k.. Right now envision me Philip rivers and I'm holding the ball in the exact same position. Is it more difficult to see the football. If Lamar Jackson is holding it that it is Philip rivers.

I refuse to believe that that right. I refuse to believe it. I mean dry the grapefruit loop and tell me that doesn't taste different than the cherry because it does. I love fruit loops. Stugatz set it on the Pole Guillermo at Lebatardshow. Did you know that all of fruit loops were the same flavor flavor. Just different colors refuse to believe these live with our show with Stugotz on. ESPN radio guys. It is time for straight great talk it is brought to you by straight talk wireless. We've got some straight talk from a tweeter here. My Grind feel free to come in here and Blindfold Stu gods as we conduct our fruit loops investigation experiment. I'd also like to know at some point. Mike when we're going to do if we're going to do what's happening happening with the lie detector that we used to do annually with Stugatz and it's a great segment and we put aside. All of God's lies we believe really that this is another other Li- he says he can tell. Which one is the grapefruit loop and we're about to test that theory? What is happening with our lie detector? Our annual lie detector test of Stugatz that is no longer annual again with this. A bit ran. Its course and also is a bit of theater of the mind if you did if you did any sort of research church. It's hard to do those spur of the moment unless it's a big time lie now thankfully so you've got this big time liar but we figured three times was enough. What what were you back there? Billy I thought this one was going to go to the grave with us. Lie Detector segment was fake. Dan didn't know we cut them. No raid the first first-time known each time we did it. We would just pre screen the questions to get an absolutely accurate one so the the the first and the audience saw it was actually the second can time sue. This was explained that Dan several times but Dan would still ask questions rapid fire and demand. Immediate answer it wasn't explained to me several times it was finding out that the state. Yeah what well okay. It wasn't totally faked. Like no the real to me. The answers will offend the second time we went. We do it before the show but there needed to be like eight seconds or something in between questions. We realize. You can't do that on the radio. It's going to be bad and then we found it. Also Joe Joe bit of a Ham. He likes to play things up a little bit. Answer got can't remember the same answer he'd give earlier in the day and later in the day so we very much bookstop at Oheka show show showman. What happened with Billy Billy was very close. What happened is that Walter? Makoto died but celebrity. prognosticator was about to be Walter. Marcado you are on the trail of the entire Mercado family and the next thing you know. He died so that that was. That's going to be one of my biggest life regrets I'd say but we were closer than anyone knows and on. Now Tell you how close we were. We were to the point where I thought that wall Tocado is going to be our next celebrity prognosticator. I tracked down his assistant. I wrote a letter in Spanish. I invited Lorenzo on because I thought that that would help with the Spanish because my Spanish is in gray than I realize. Of course he blabber is way too much so I cut him out of it all together and then I just felt with it in Spanish. I handled the situation. I found out that he was travelling back and forth. I was like you know what I think. This is going to be our next I think he's GonNa be our next Hillary prognosticator and then October happened. And you disappeared for a little bit. And and I realize this isn't gonNA work out with STU GODS so then he died before you came okay. That's a good explanation. All of that makes sense weird crew. We've got the fruit loops in front of. How do you think that would have worked very cowardly would've gone very poorly I'm sorry that that didn't work out now. uh-huh now we'll get we'll get him next. Time will not him. We'll get you know someone else next thing so about four. We get to this fruit loops Blindfold experiment though. Oh and I'm GONNA need some help here with how it is that we're doing the mechanics of this. I want to get to the straight talk From this guy on twitter Anthony Bartholomee he. He is bringing you the straight talk today he is objecting to our poll. Should there be white. Footballs and this is what Anthony Bartholomee has to say. STUPIDEST BS ever think about one insane. Sports caster imagined a supposed advantage for a black quarterback and now someone wants to know if we need to make. Footballs Ball's white to be fair to white. QB's perhaps all football should be read but someone will find a way to racial is that you don't get they show God's already cheating on the blindfold. He hasn't had tangy already moved things around. I see the disgust of the shipping container. I didn't look at just. I didn't know no we're Mike and when I didn't feel his presence around me anymore so I was just lifting thing to see where Mike is gone. That's all why are you lying. Because that's what I do okay. So he's was cheating he already cheated. If we can't even do it now we can. We can we not do it. Let's see all right so this is the test. This is the thing that we are trying. Lang detest here. You've got STU gods with a blindfold which I think are Bikini panties. If I'm not mistaken. They are offering. They're covering his eyes and now oh he is trying to test the theory that all fruit loops are the same. They're just different colors. There aren't actually different. Flavors so what does he have to do here. Mike if he happens to pull up a grape one will he say is this grape. Yeah he He's been quizzed on all the colors that are in the fruit loops box. He told the specifically can tell us exactly exactly when he has a grapefruit Luba and he's pretty confident that he can tell us all the flavors so we put a wide array of fruit loops in front of him and he will tell us exactly which flavor he is picked out beginning with the first one. Go ahead stugatz rummaging. Like the rummage. Like a good rummage. Dano rebel route luke number one the first fruit loop doing. He's putting it in his mouth other blindfolded guy. It has been placed in his mouth. That's the red one. That is the red one that is correct by God. It's amazing all. Yeah you kill on route loops man you do so. This is tough man now the second one now hold on to one yup one at a time. So you don't mix flavors thank you. I think it was a red one again You want what's got you bought water. Maybe so you don't make the taste. No no no. We're doing just fine. How you're doing fine all right all right here? We go got another one I believe that to be a yellow one. Yes so how did he actually cheating cheating did I have. I thought he cheated. I thought I thought he looked down because he was trying to do a thing where he was lifting it over his eyes and I'm pretty sure glance at the company's just memorizing. Let's just do it. Let's take it up. Shake it shake it up all right. Because he's choosing right. He's clearly cheating. This doesn't work no way to get it right every time there. This doesn't work as well when you're sitting here and your I cannot see a thing I tell you cannot see a thing saying all right all right well when you do too well in anything we think you're I understand that I've earned that all right so fruit loops expert. extraordinaire stu gods is now going to go for four Oruro on the fruit loops. Let's see what we have here. Go ahead and put it in your mouth. I think that's the great one. Wow One more one more. Yeah we should not wouldn't get one wrong but until you get one I don't feel like you're very good at this. Well no I am very good at this. who was that the blue one insane? I have to call it. He's very clear all right very clearly. Go ahead and take off the blindfold. The Bikini and you could see that. They're all in the prescription process required online physician consultation and only available if the physician determines prescriptions appropriate.

How's he told me that for all the latest headlines Information tune into sports center on ESPN radio all throughout the day? Gaza have an update. A helpful person on twitter. Pointed this out so I looked it up. S S. I wrote an article about this a couple of years ago apparently the NFL from the late twenties until the nineteen fifties used white. Footballs at night but there were drawbacks because the white footballs blended in with the white uniforms See who see so. It seems like suspended Suspended broadcaster Tim Brian of the San Francisco. Forty niners who said that. Lamar Jackson had an advantage because The wet football blended in with his skin. It seems like a more legitimate question Russian ass now. We know he's wrong but was he right. Who was wrong for saying we know that but was he right? You know what maybe the funniest thing that happened in the last segment happened. Unfortunately off air. I'm not making this up. This is how it happened. Okay uh-huh if you weren't listening we did a fruit loop test with stugatz. One of our favorite things around here is to prankster. God's the greatest prank we've ever pulled on him. We're GONNA play for you right now. which which is? We went to Bristol Connecticut. He had worked with both Tony Collins and Cassidy Hubbard. But he couldn't tell them. Apart in any way and hand he introduced us to one as the other earlier very confidently. And then we brought Tony Collins in to sit with us in Studio L.. But he thought it was Cassidy Hubbard my first trip to Bristol I did I take Sadako and cassidy hub. Earth was the host of the show and so when we went up there. That was my second time there and I wanted to impress you guys like I knew every you knew everybody and in the cafeteria. He was doing finger sausages all over the place in the cafeteria. He introduced Dan. A and I to Cassidy Hubbard however Tony Collins walked over and said I'm not cassidy. Yes she was very polite about it and told God's you made a terrible mistake and then Dan and I kissed and said I bet you he makes it again. And so We brought in Tony Collins in the studio and it's as mad as to God's has ever been on me on at the on the air because I was legit mad like I was really really. I don't really get angry with anything regarding this show that day. That's the angriest I've I've ever been you buy yes and so here it is. Here is the anger. That's God's displayed that day I think the flattering thing for cassidy is even now. She wasn't there and even though it wasn't her I was thinking of Cassidy. I mean that should be flattering. Well you want to apologize. She's right here. Thank you thank you. You want to apologize to her face. I M Cathy I really. I should be apologizing to Tony as well. Hopefully we'll get Tony or she nice very nice. She's from Miami. She went out of her way the last time she was here to to find. I really like she. She went out of her way to find because she's from Miami. She likes our show. She wanted to meet me. That was like a month ago. And and you and I did I take six months ago but I love to get impression on you. Then you let the great impression on me. I am really embarrassed. I don't embarrass easily. You're about to be more EH. That's Tony Cassidy does not look like the same. Go you through Saturday Tony. Are you telling me I hate me. Hate advice to me two weeks ago. If you need only seen in county stop it right out right now I love you I apologize. This is such a bad trick that you played on eleven toward. How dare you do this to me idea? Tony All right let me explain splaine you. He was that kind of man. You're quick throw that on Mike Ryan. I guess I was so students that kind of mad with what we did in the last segment I I hope television caught all that because billy dissolved it laughing for reasons that have nothing to do with the sound. We just played a blindfolded. Chris cody just through all the fruit loops at his face during that segment and he's blindfolded because he's doing a grid of death punishment but so just to recap here they have the funniest thing happened off Air Stugatz. We tricked him last segment because fruit loops. All are the same taste. They're just different colors and we were shocked by that yesterday and so we had only only purple in a cup we switched out the cup. Wants to God's wasn't looking so it was a largely visual joke but we celebrated Stu gods and he felt very good that that he was getting every last answer right he was he was swaggering. And he's like I told you guys I'm great at this now the fruit loop challenge and then no lie. Hi as soon as we go off the air I look up and Chris Cody. Whose blindfolded folded says genuinely? I thought he was crushing it. UH-HUH DID DID I. How hard is it been and do the show blindfolded like you seem? You seem really lost and you've been you've been fairly useless show.

Always on the wrong side of things so well but listen. Look at what he did. He got my wife a Pelivan three years ago. She was not offended. So this is the thing that people talk about all the time. The idea of getting a loved one fitness equipment for the holidays is is something. That sometimes isn't going to go over very well with your wife because you might be or your husband because you might be saying something about the Peleton right that surfing and so Jane Slater writes an ex-boyfriend once. Got Me a fitbit for Christmas. I loved it. We sinked up motivate motivate. Each Other. Didn't hate it until he was unaccounted for at four. AM and his physical activity levels. Were spiking on the APP. I wish this story wasn't real. My wife says I should get Peleton. Get a Peleton. I'm down you're GONNA just dry clothes on it you're going to just put put comes furniture. That's what it does him enough for millions across all right. That is correct Mike it sounds like Mike Mike is done. I was surprised by something that happened this week. In sports in that Paul Finebaum who is now taken to beefing with a whole lot of people Paul Finebaum does not mind being the person who is fighting with people in Sports. Because he's firing this guy and firing that guys in mind I think he thrives on it. I don't think that I don't the thing. The sports public at large understands like how gutsy it is for Paul Finebaum to do what he does on the air which is fire people left and right people that he's an insider. He's a college football personality. He goes to these games. He talks to these people and he is not afraid to face them and so this is what he said that about Dabo swinney and I was surprised. The part I was surprised by how many people took his side. Because it appears that Davos twenty is entering this James Harden territory or hey you can be as excellent as you want but there's sometimes that we don't like some of the things that you do and so here's Paul Finebaum on Davos winning I think Dabo Sweeney is the most annoying Weiner in all of sports I mean the guy just can't keep his trap shut somebody just give the man a pacifier sand him to time out and we'll check in with him on December December twenty eighth when he finally plays a legitimate team during this entire college football season so that offense does look pro-style to me when I watched that offense. I'm like WHOA. That looks more professional than most of the things. I'm watching college. Football does but it's also not Davos fault like I understand what Paul is saying. But it's not Davos fault. They haven't played anyone that conferences lousy. How's it is lousy but I thought this is the part that I found interesting about the back and forth the number of people who took Finebaum side because they also find daboh annoying But Devil was right in his retort when Daboh said I don't listen to criticism from people whose advice I would not seek like that is that is that makes them more likeable right. It doesn't make it more likely but I believe that to be exactly how public figures should should react with thick skin criticism. That's Wilpon only being allowed to talk about sports. Talk with you and not me no. I'm not saying I'm not saying that. No you can't have your opinion. I'm saying it shouldn't affect Dabo Swinney at all that Paul Finebaum things that way. If you're in this particular arena doing what we do. Having having opinions you should not be affected by people whose advice you would not seek. You really shouldn't do much in the way of criticism unless you respect the criticize her like you shouldn't do much with criticism from others because otherwise got every every damn day around here we say something something that outrages hundreds of people who think that we're idiots and terrible at this every day every single day and so it's better to just not listen but listen when the people you respect or people whose opinion or advice you would seek are the ones giving you the greatest. The only difference is we are actually idiots but a lot of people in Sports are idiots like a lot of people so much of the sports coverage a lot of your coaches. A lot of everything happening there. They didn't have Stephen. A Smith apologized to his program. One of them's going to win the title this year with Lsu uh-huh Whoa WHOA box. What are you doing an apology? You know what I mean about him. Being Wildcard definitely. He's totally responsible. I have no idea what's coming. Yeah I did ask for any of this. GEICO presents. Monster Counseling Dracula. Tell me how you're feeling. No one understands how known Levi's no one will even let me into the house. I knock knock but they ignore me. Ah what else I look in the mirror. Don't consider excuse myself anymore if you don't see yourself clearly. Can you really expect others to. I'm having a breakthrough. It's not easy to be a vampire but with gyco it's super easy to switch and save hundreds on your car insurance.

The same way that mountain do is changing the game. They challenged people to pursue their passions. So they're aligning with the most bad ass shot in all of sports pushing the boundaries taking hoops to the next tax level. Take your drink to the next level mountain dew. They're all about being bad ass as we're the most bad ass people on planet we are the most bad ass podcasters. We're the most bad ass podcasters guests in this room. Yeah I'm sick and I'm like I'm I'm powering through let us. Yeah Yeah I've been. I've vigne recorded in las stuff all day bad ass. Shoot that ball. Drink that mountain dew record your podcast pursue your passions. Whatever it may be get out there would be a bad ass and get it done? Drink your mountain dew while doing. It's the official beverage of the NBA. And the official beverage of bad asses everywhere we are going to do. We have an interview today. I don't know it doesn fucking matter because the wilpon realm fucking team Jon more on reading. It's actually happening and it's happening like right now. I can't get in having so fascinating I think it was just this morning. Tiki was like he said yes. I heard someone selling everyone's like what are you fucking Tiki. Twelve hours later done and the more I wish I wish the report on the rundown was very well up in controlling like stake in five years and I wish I had known it during the rundown that dismiss wakes Ken Rosenthal to this dress. Yet tell me it was like yeah. There's like a stake in five years but there's still controlling. No this is it. They're fucking selling the ten. They sailed they stay on that tweet. That everyone pooh-poohed was they're staying on in name only yes. CEO Coo whatever. The two you don't up your money and buy something and then let to other Jubran who are known assholes. Continue to run the company. The one of the next five years they ran into the ground. You're going to buy something and let someone rooted in five years. Don't give it to me in half a decade. Give it to me now right fucking now and so it's eighty percent got controlling controlling stake now and then in five years. When they're totally out he is like the deal? The real deal. It's also Steven Cohen. Who is going to I mean is he was he already? Yes okay like small small time owner in in the past when there's been like made off shit and all that stuff. There was talks about him doing this. So yeah but then he plead guilty. He did yeah me one EH. One point eight billion dollars. He he by any means necessary like Mexico won the world series within the next ten years. Boy because this is where it see this is where are are. You worried me because you are. You're almost like a like a bar Chicago writer where everything is so volatile. Everything's either like like you go from. I mean literally earlier today it was going to stop being a mets fan. Yup and then now two hours later. It's like they're gonna you gotta just. John got to work out giant level. John you had eighty six year curse right you got new ownership. Boom you WANNA world series the cubs hundred eight year cars. Go boop when world series when you get new owners you get new blood you get a guy who is buying a franchise in a big market. Who starring for a win? He's not GonNa do that to just be like a passive owner. He's gone all in. Yeah the new thing does so you know it's a I mean every time every time and the dodgers even like they haven't won it but they've been like fifty times in a row and they make the playoffs every year since they got new ownership when you get that new blood in especially in a big market and a team. That's been failing. The only reason you do that especially this a long island guy. He's a New Yorker he wants to want to New York teams. He's just like in the mix in the league. It's his team. He's at least going to. Maybe maybe I yeah. You can't guarantee but they're going to be in the mix he will go. Stephen Cohen WPRO. Bobby axelrod is modeled. After Stephen Cohen billions is about Steven Cohen. Oh yeah this guy is not fucking around this guy is GonNa blow through through a luxury tax. That'd be like fuck it or cheating or buying or winning. I didn't know that. Yeah that's A. That's a nice bobby surrounded by fucking owner now. I went from the worst owner order in the world to like. It's like Mark Cuban serendipity with Dan today bill millions. It's all coming full circle dance odor funniest guy on the planet Steven Cohen best on the planet. It's like Mark Mark Cuban but with like more shadiness shrewdness. And don't give a fuck nece. Exactly what what I've always wanted. Has He been an owner that you like about it. Because I'm a fucking Weirdo. I don't think he has ever had any controlling interest. He's never had much say anything. It's just been like an investment I think for this like get my foot in the door. Hold my whole my spot and then when the time is right and I don't know why this is the time I don't know what the deal is. I don't know what what finally maybe it was. The fire wilpon shirts. Maybe it was the four fire. wilpon shirts that I've sold at times. Maybe maybe the made off digits bleed them dry. Maybe it's the fact that they needed to take out loans every fucking year just to operate the team. Maybe baseball finally stepped in. Maybe it's Manfred. Once he got in the show maybe he started pulling strings. I don't know I don't care if finally fucking happen now and by the way as much as we're saying the wilpon are entitled only if if they do have any sort of saying anything you would think they would go balls to the wall in the next five. Yeah so maybe they're going to go crazy. And then Stephen going to raise the a I get the while. They're still Selina. Meyer wanting to free the goats. She was still Nobel Peace Prize. The she'll be they'll be the one on the parade they'll be the one you know taking the trophy leaving the next guy's bid bunny but the big question here is it's kind of an old comedy tropes is that you could medians. Were scared to get healthy mentally. Because they're scared to lose their funny. You get happy sports wise. Are you worried that you lose your funding and you lose your probably. Don't care you you better open you tell me are you and I will. People said to me all the time like you. You love this. You love your teams. You're back 'cause like good for business. I'm like listen. I turned negative into a positive. I'll give you that much for sure. I lost so not good for business. Speaking is somewhat successful. Sports teams much better to have success. I said the time between how much mercury could sell how much camera time you get the exposure that travel the all that shit over business have a winning team and I always say we're the super bowl meeting eating and it was vital for them on Saturday but probably is Monday right. You'll probably be there through money because majors at once again I will gladly accept the challenge of trying to find a way to make content as not the loser fan. Because maybe that'll be nice all two different things I will say it is funny like when I do the jets and they win. I'm just like hey fucking cool man they want. I had a lot more to say when they lose because I have so many more thoughts and in criticisms of the team. If the mets Steven Cohen comes in and does when I think he's going to do I'll be so happy I'll be so oh happy like because I really think he he'll do it in a way. Where not only will they be like a contender? I bet you I'm GonNa have myself. That was I was going to say that the envy of like people like. I wish I was a mets fan. Here's what I fear. I fear Doc Casey because I fear that the jets are okay where they could have something right. And then I fear the mets get get good and I don't know how I will handle a Kevin telling me my team sucks. Times are like like water. Let's I like to point out that I've always been very sympathetic with you. Okay except for the Times that he told me that your life is harder because you lose in the Super Bowl I I am excited to see you taste that. I know what I don't even think I'm GONNA taste that. I think if I get there I'm GonNa win it. Wouldn't it be funny. Imagine if like what Brady did fall off the Kellerman cliff. And what if this stephen caller and imagine if it was just like we just changed freaky Friday two ships in the night. Yeah by the way people are being all five more years and as we've explained it's not really that's happening right now but even if it was like that's a fucking drop in the ocean ocean longtime years. Okay Yeah I'm thirty Lincoln Five. We have five years ago when the mets were back in the world series like I think the two of them fifteen run. Ah yesterday five years. I'll do that my fucking sleep. I did say maybe maybe we can freeze me cryogenically for five years you the demolition man. Wake me up in five years. I don't know that I know cryogenic freezing is from Austin powers but I don't know what that most men is suppose. Loan Wesley Snipes No. Oh aw so When you go to jail you get frozen? And then and then some people don't ever get let out some people get let out later so so Wesley Snipes is like a bad guy who gets frozen. who gets out and then just alone is a guy gets frozen? I think like What's it called like unjustly like he didn't commit the crime and he's a cop so basically they had these two old school guys who are in the future chasing each other it's fucking dope but was really funny is I believe the future is like two thousand ten in their cryogenically freezing people and like they have semi to have sex with a headset? You'll love this. You'll you'll love this. You'll love the if this ever happened. Sandra bullock is the chicken and and they had sex at one point and she takes like this thing and she puts it over. If you're watching Barshop goal dot com slash Casey. Right now you see. She puts it like over her is like this and she like pushes pushes a button and she comes and Silvester salone things about the fuck and he's like what. No I like Dick inside you you know. And she's like well we haven't don that ninety seven talking about. We use a lot of liberties with the future. Nineteen ninety nine is a part of this movie like things. Things are happening in ninety nine. We've got we've gone smarter with it but it was. I don't even think moves. I don't know if they give a year anymore because it's in the distant future because they used he's really hover boards and fucking like sift floating houses and all these like different like freezing when he fires. Yeah not that much phones now in our pocket. Yeah phones actually got like bigger families Tinier they somehow got bigger. Wow wow how so. We think that it's just I am Jesse. Whatever else was I mean Jesse from? I'm so excited I'm so excited I'm scared. Yeah before you. I'm there's a part of me that's a little scary well part of me. It's the unknown. You're afraid of the unknowns. Like I know losing I kind of know what to expect as I get my hopes up for the bengals and I'm so mad about myself this. This is the biggest of getting your hopes up. This is me putting all my chips in the middle being this. This is going to be it but I mean I don't see logically a scenario under which if you're doing this and you're Kinda guy or a finance guy or a shady dude you're a New York guy and you're buying this team that grossly closely underachievers and doesn't spend chances are you're going to do like the total opposite right. There's no way he just comes into town just like well. I had this project. Yeah right yeah I mean that's like you. Reference my teams crafted John Henry new ownership. It's because they're guys who are like and and that guy is Jerry Jacobs was he was loud as a wilpon type whereas like who. Is that every Jacobs the owner of the Bruins. He's actually you too controlling to a son now but it was. He was the owner for a while. It was they'll spend they'll never with the Jacobs Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah and. Then there was a shift in the mid to thousands where it was like. Okay okay. We're GONNA go now and the Bruins are obviously. Okay here. I mean that's the Wilpon is ever just decided to stop being assholes. Stop meddling and everything and spend their money. They'd probably be fine too. I believe that's going to do in less. The only thing is that there's always the chance that it's like a Jerry Jones. Daniel Snyder like he's got the money and he's got the drive but he wants to control but as a finance guy. He's pretty smart in the sense of like I think those guys like us just achieve the bottom reliance achieved the money. Let's achieve the goal and it doesn't matter if it's being that those things are I don't understand that you you know you can't do this. Why why not not quipped blew the the the idea that like money makes you smart so silly so when you come on Jeff Wilpon fucking inherited that you know if you're an old like sometimes I think about Dave doubting? Dave is stubborn asshole. I think he does a lot of things stupidly that we will be in a better spot if he did it differently but I also can totally understand where he's like. We're going with my gut because it got me from the fucking basement of my wife's parents house to here so it's gone pretty good so my gut usually get me. You know it's like do I think we could have gone. Maybe a little bit further. Have I'll be done it this way. Sure but when you build something and you are successful and you make your money. Rally are pretty confident in your decision making ability. When you're the son of that guy you know deep down you've never fucking earned Pacino Harrison? What does one group? You'll you can never trust millionaires kids. Yup I mean the most silver spoon astles and that was in the seventies so you probably moved up to billionaires kids now but instead applies James Dolan. Charles Charles was the one who fucking and built that whole thing. James Dolan inherited shits all over and Jeff Wilpon same fucking so it's Lou Day. I can't I cannot believe it. I never thought this was happening. I I remember because we just learned recently this year so finding finding that me and Clem made the we gotta believe like mission to get this done and we were joking about how we we just found out that Jeff has a son something something so Dushi his name name is you've told us and we're like there's no that's it like he'll be it'll be passed down to him. We're never getting rid of this. I don't know what happened. Maybe it was. Maybe it was. Maybe it was me rattling. The cage is about that pregnant woman they fired. I don't know I don't know it's fucking happening. Spring training can't get here fast enough. I can't wait for baseball now. Maybe let's go. What else do we got all right? So stance oded on the show his answer. The Internet is out right now. He is the best answer the Internet player on the planet. It's I if we if there was a league if there was a ranking system if there was a championship he he would fuck in win it. He is unbelievable solitude today. It's it's amazing how fast we found the MJ and the quickness. With which with Richie answers questions you I would. If if people like accuse us of like you know giving them the answer questions at a time I would be like. That's a valid. That's a valid point. I don't see them somehow. I don't know how he has these answers unto his tongue long and also I didn't realize this he did the blowjob question twice. We gave them a one hundred dollars and I had a feeling just because as I know we've done that question in the past and it happened to come out on the deck. I WANNA professional. He just did it did it again. Same answer to flip flop or anything and he could have said air. You had had this one nope just fucking and I'm sure he's funnier jokes. You Know God damn professional and that son of a bitch had the nerve. He so one of the questions was we'd rather be invisible or have a clone of yourself and he picked the clone of himself and then he said he'd ended up having a rocky and Apollo type fight. Where you know you both punch at the same time and he was like you remember that painting and I was like we're GonNa make painting we're going? We're going to get that done. So I have trig draw a trig cartoon of Soda Fighting Soda Motherfucker Dan. Dan Sends back the picture of the actual painting that he was referencing. 'cause there's a painting of it that's like an oil painting with his kind of like abstract act in smeared and he was really nailed. It Fuck You soder fucking Internet cartoon guy. I didn't tell Ya we're GONNA paint. Adventure could do that. Probably probably I guess you know explicit direction but I mean Jesus Christ Dan. I'm sorry I don't have in. You know the twentieth century century expression illest pointillism. fucking number pointillism down. I mean I remember the word culture you. What kind of art is I imagine? There's a lot of DOTS. Sure all dance on the show was anti is out now. He has a new special December seventh son of a Gary. You've seen a screen for that. It is really really really funny if you're not going to be on Saturday night understandable but DVR. It's all good. Ah The bit he does about. I was dad. Drank himself to death. South wanted it.

I I see so the other night my son's Iowa and we were drinking and games and then I'm now in the bottle and I don't know things just got like super weird like everyone kissing being and kissing and I tell them if the deal because ball Tangalle let's play time friends. Like virtual ultra off. So I don't know more I think about it so weird I think it was so I guess the question for you and like that. We're too old to thanks to the ball anymore. I mean you know like over thirteen. Yeah there's a weird move because it is. It's just like the have you ever played. I've never played with. I don't think I ever had actually Taylor definitely not seven minutes in that one's crazy it's like what do you want me to go owner fucker in the fucking closet. Like seven minutes a long time. I believe I was once like in the game but I never Komo on the bottle. I've I've absolutely. I think I've definitely never abundant circus right. I've never been in any place where a bottle was present to spinning. Yeah I know. I didn't know the thing I didn't know kids actually played that. Yeah I saw here. I guess the movies see I. I actually think it's we did you. Oh yes suburban kids. I don't know I was assigned to but I didn't fuck in didn't do that and you you would just just everybody just did it. It was all good. Yeah it was pretty weird looking back. I is that where you had your first kiss. No no could hear that. Can You Yeah I don't know how the hell it ended up happening but yeah I think it was just single people sitting around trying to hook up with somebody specific cheat the game. Yeah yea yea spreads trying to spin it in such a way like oh I feel like it's X. Maybe apparently in Iowa but I almost could see a being more reasonable reasonable to do like. She's talking about like as a joke almost rather than being like thirteen and be like. Let's make out playing in the bottle. I think you have to fuck if you do it now. I honestly listening to is that right there in the circle I thought it was GONNA turn into an orgy. Weird and maybe that's what I call Eh. I mean that's exactly. I thought that was. That's more caves radio than like we just like silly ass kissing and then like we started having Saxon like the eight of us were just having sex with each other. That's what's happening here and the answer is still going to be. It's pretty fucking weird but that's pretty cool too. I don't I also I also don't like really kiss that much. I don't WanNA KISS KISS Rangers. Forget about all that. I don't WanNa kiss unless there's you have enough friends to a you got a pretty big group. I guess but I don't know if I even have enough of mixed company crowd to record like rally up a gang to play bottle I would. There would be like. There's so many things I would rather do like spin. The bottle lands on us. We have to dance together. I I without without end goal kissing his with most fucking no even worse have sex with a random person in the bottle friend. Not a random person. You know the person I don't know. I think that that would feel very odd. It's almost I know it's not rape be ready. Be What it is ripping originally the gods decided you have to have sex and maybe I agreed redeploy the game but like boy I really didn't WanNA pointing towards you. Yeah I was hoping to that guy but last night I took my chances here. There's only one person here I didn't WanNa fuck and write a bit. It's you you out there. That is there is nothing fun about spin the bottle. I can't imagine. Could you imagine if somebody spins it lands on you and like she doesn't like you know mask asked her reaction if she's just like what I do. I know but I mean just knowing that you're the guy in the circle that nobody wants to fulfill this. No definitely now I think they give you know you sit down circle around her. She didn't have just recently. It's exactly what it is the if you WanNa if you sit down and spin the bottle circle and you want to make everyone that means no wants to talk you look Would've oh boy man. And I'm I'm the the outlier here I feel like I'm trying to envision a scenario where I kinda where I do this and I'm thinking back to when I when I when we used to do all the summer house I talked about in the Vermont houses during the winter. We we always kind of did it with like girlfriends and or like friends like we used that to hook. It was much more of like a parties. Yeah but like some people will like go on those trips and they those houses and it's like a fuck fast though. God that's awful. I and I'm wondering. Yeah and that's the way I did and that's where we had a lot of fun but like you know maybe maybe one or two times here there rather than just do the same old. Let's Party and play drinking games. And then he pizza like what if we all just got kinky and played some games you know. Oh I don't think the end of the world I know now know what if the whole house decided one night. Everyone I don't know people fucking popping Somalis time sit. Everyone's feeling sexy lexi. You're just you would just check out. You'd think I mean if I was like higher whatever maybe but in my right mind I would definitely want to know about that because it just ruins ruins friendships. There's no way make out. I mean they make out no I feel like I could be more comfortable. They said as a twenty five year old in a party scene jokingly but going through with it playing spin the bottle versus like when I was thirteen the party I was at where they were playing it. I was like deathly afraid. Great I was like please don't like I don't Wanna I don't WanNa do you know what I mean. Yeah I guess like if I was drunk I mean. Kissing really isn't a big deal so I guess it's like what it is when you're that age you know what I mean so like I feel like you're playing sex the sex level of it. Now yes. That's what it was kids there. I mean it's the same thing right. This is what we do with the biggest deal. Well Yeah. I don't know I think anything like that. I never did any never had any sort of play through the dare but I don't think he's ever. I dare are you to kiss me. Yeah just like dairy in his pants I feel really. I don't think I ever did that. That's a good one. Ah We should have organized a true justice. Somebody that we should add like a wrinkled. You don't have to answer any question you don't want to. But you know Darin Boston and you always have to the game of his panting. Let's go to the question. Hey guys few friends and they were debating this question If you put together every slice of pizza that you've ever eaten. How many the whole pieces do you think you've consumed in your lifetime? I guys Viva what. Say what eight pieces eight slices in a pie. Four I think in a standard. Yeah so every eight slices. How many pieces of eating my life? I don't I don't know math man. This is like one of those questions. Like how many street lights are there in New York City. I'm bathrooms can you fit in an airplane. I fucked if there's if there's eight slices per pie. How many slices the eating like think? Let's say I don't have a guess here. Let's say you've been eating with the The Ninth ATM's Got Stolen Thirty nine thousand dollars in cash. I I would've told you that there was. I didn't know number fifty dollars. I mean based on based on breaking bad just how hard it was to crack into that case. I would've thought there was a million in there. This is crazy thirty six hundred percent. I really let's say I eat. I'm going to say I've been eating pizza. I'm going to say like on my own where I'm like getting my my own pizza because Pizza Party when your kid here there but I've been eating my own pizzas. I was thirteen. Let's say let's say fourteen. I'm making pizza for an even twenty years going going out and getting my own pizza right. I'm a little less than that. Despite the age difference I think I was probably sixteen. I'M GONNA get myself place okay before that. I'm just doing it to make it relatively twenty years and I'll say I have pizza pizza in a year as a weekly. How many how many times do you think you have weekly on average? I was just six of the Pizza Week right zero but okay I I would be if you broke it down. I have six pizza per week. All right so if you were to. Let's let's round that up to eight because that would be a pie. You'd have a week so this is a year year two times twenty two thousand Five Thousand Forty Zion's alot more than that. I don't know I felt that's actually kind of high and I don't know if I have a full six excuses a week I bet so. Okay I mean I've been eating healthy so I haven't had like it. I guess what I'm just let myself go but like I that's why you really eat healthy. I just kind of like. Don't eat horrendous anytime I do something graduate Diet and never never gonNA. I won't last until noon for right but I'm just be a little more conscious. Well the problem too and I'm thinking about it like right now. Ali Gets delivered here and I'll get get pizza every now and then at home but I have to go to a place and get it and but when I was living in Manhattan I lived above a people so I had it every night when I was living in hoboken and I was broke. There was this place called seven stars. They're they're they're slices. Where like this big for like two dollars so I could eat like I get like full two dollars so I was eating pizza like every day and night? They're you're so over the course of a lifetime over under fifteen hundred lifetime take the under but by like fourteen fourteen ninety. I'm going over. I'm for sure like heavy over like three thousand. There are so many pizza. I mean there are plenty times. I've taken down three pieces in a day and I did throw out when you're a child but that's actually read a lot of pizza. PJ Oh yeah. I'm counting that I would put myself in the eighteen hundred and seventy two eight hundred rains scholar Matt huge on pizzas. You Fat Bitch. I would bet I bet. Yeah for sure. Okay that's a good question like how many pizzas you considering how many. That's that's a good answer to that question when you die and you want to know the stats.

There's never been a time when I'm like girls girls that I like cheese pizza. I like a cheeseburger I think is on the Sandwich I think getting. jeez earning overrated tag cheeses seizes crossing into A. They were there. There's a reason why that famous question is would you rather give up cheese or blowjobs. We'll because that's like giving a pizza cheeseburgers. I it's not like would you give up the Briana chart who'd reward. It's coming on cheeses a whole if the question was cheesy. You haven't charcuterie boards being keep fucking groceries and cheeseburgers. Everyone says yes but cheese. But you can't but you can't separate that and say that she's overrated because it does go into all those things I- cheese fancy cheeses all that stuff I don't need I don't care for the American maybe a little blue monitoring gas is my.

That I've I'm trying to figure out on her phone in Chicago. We don't do that so I was asking ratcheted it and then she started talking and we were like hey like like she was new. Scooby drink compliant and she was telling me once you have to break up with her boyfriend Yadda Yadda Yadda Then I get home and after number. She's called me seven times. She'd text me saying how she's afraid her life she needs to come over She's just kind of very quickly obsessed with me and I'm just before and he goes into. This is the plot of like a scary movie. And should I dropped the as you talk. Because she's still taxing pigmeat still trying to call me still like it was a good night and yeah just hanging out. She said I fear for my life by the way that was one of the break up with a boyfriend. Yeah Yeah I mean. This is the best advertisement in history for just mining. You're over Rachel Richard Fragile. Just Google will the bus pass thing. Don't ask strangers stuff like that. It's really hey Google Chicago now let me ask you type it Chicago. What's his bus? Pass people using the US strangers you end up. Having a bucket deal their problems we get a lot of calls that are always like I moved to a new city like amount of college. Like how do you meet. People both get don't don't you shouldn't want zero in New York City from outside parcels for think about this anybody that you meet in that city. That's willing to be friends with you. Unless by the grace of God you run into someone who just moved there as well and your cut from the same cloth. You're in the same situation anyone who you meet. WHO's willing to be friends with? You means they don't have any friends a- and no one is drake's new friends is very same once you you hit an aide out of college. She's younger but like I think I hit eighteen is finally what he stopped growing size. Wise one one. What A to really? I've met the people I need to mean pretty much college. I guess as long as if someone like cosigns for you straight as I need to get into work ended up liking someone but like you if I met someone through you when I was twenty five we became cool. It's like I had that proof from you coast. You'll meet a stranger singer and they want to be friends with you back. And they are not like new to that city or something. They have their own fucking issues. They're probably fucking euros. There's a reason why they're down. Hang out with us. Because they lost all their other other friends by being the weird obsessive prison much. Yeah it's it's I mean I is. Someone is willing to give you their phone number on a bus but by the way. Don't take that phone number. I mean you got gotta move now because there's nowhere address and stuff yet. They haven't hung out on the bus. Your commute son of a bitch. You're going to see this girl again. Uber Town at least once over every time. Yeah Oh you don't have to maybe move cities but you gotta move apartment. So you're on a new commute route or you got to do a whole new mode of transportation. Yeah get your bike. John get start walking. Start running start driving Kogyo winters just because verson your Dina frost-bites like well. Why are you doing that? Let let me tell you the story you explain the situation. They'd get it I get it. It makes it makes perfect. I mean it's anyone anyone who would think about yourself. What are you bring to the table? Anyone who's eager to be your friend if you met him work as everybody's at work so you can see someone learn things about them. Watch them operate per while and of course. Yeah I did the same thing with bars like opposite sex stuff I will I. I don't know what a girl could say to me in a bar. Maybe like I probably. Hi But the I'm GonNa give you my phone number we're GONNA talk. I don't think I would do that. I don't think I'd be like all right. Let's we've had. We've been talking for five minutes. That's what the hell do you like about me. That's what I I don't respect you for respecting if you if you were down with me it means you're fucked up. Yeah there's there's no I know I know what I'm GonNa tell you what I think that like. That's for the long run me after a year. You're really fucked up. I could put on a good front for like five minutes. That might you might think I'm better than I am not me no no. I've been like it's much more much more prone to learn. I think I'm the I'm the long-term I'm I'm very very volatile. Where like I think when you first meet me even if your friends of my friends I don't really like him and then there will be six months in the? He's a pretty good dude. He's a nice guy. Yeah that my ex wife you slept on the face. It's not true and then two years later in the urine anyway. I have window that you will like me and it's not when you first meet me. Okay all right that makes sense dense a bottom line though no new friends no new strangers and anybody who wants to be down with you in that situation. Read fucking flack. Hey boys so I know you don't deal with a lot of questions like this but I'm a senior in high school and I recently started where I'm GonNa go to college and play football for the next couple of years probably are we not probably like six but I was just wondering 'cause my girlfriend would by year and a half excited that she's going to go to the same colleges. This means I switched colleges. I just switched colleges But I definitely can't be going to the same college. Eighteen year olds the crazier than the bus person ex-girlfriend a year and a half of quotas current right current girlfriend. I was dating this girl. And they're going to college and she decided to go to the same colleges him unique story. I I don't think crazy happens. Couples go to college together. Fuck yeah really. That's fucking nuts. Terrible idea I mean I I abuse follow a boy or a girl to college. Your fucking cross state Larsen Dam only your state school. I think that happens a lot. I guess that if your like if you're gonNA play football at University of Miami and you're Living Idaho then yeah it's weird but it's like you both just go to like some small school about far from home. I don't know I still feel a lot like I feel like a lot of people. Don't go to college together like I mean. I didn't go to college with anyone I wouldn't high school with. I hardly probably my first high school i. I probably three kids in high school. I went there with but okay so like I. Now that I think about it there was actually a couple of people but like that's not a lot and so for the the couple the dating. That's not just coincidence. You're going because of that. Yeah clue likes him. I think not share the sentiment so I think I think even like if I was dating a girl and high school. Maybe this is hindsight but like I feel like I had enough foresight to know that like high school relationship. There's no shot you know. You're not this is not the fifties and you're not living in middle America fucking ISLA planning spin the bottle. I feel like you know this is a is time. Move on eventually and maybe not right away that every reversal just because everyone who's alive that day that those feelings the most you think they're real forever. I like everything that's happening in your life that days the most important to you. I don't know I was dating girl in high school I was like I'm not going to go with this girl. I never really had a girlfriend high school but I feel like people are and the things you consume the shows you consume are like the couples are like staying together and Shit like that and I think that that warms mature brain into thinking that. Oh this is how it works like a gas high school. sweethearts are getting married and stuff like that and they go to college together. I I don't think this is crazy but it's I think it's Brazil if you don't like or don't like but so what does he do. He's gotTa Change. I mean it's a he had this back because you've got to clarify. What kind of squeezed onto state school doesn't doesn't matter? I mean either way people's not changing because he's got Glen Football. Yeah so he's not give up his team that he made or whatever shows you can't tell someone else to not go to college if they that's where they wanna go like you're fucked. You have a crazy girlfriend who college and you're fucked you you have you. You went to College College. People break up in college but I feel like if the girl is the one who follows you there that she's not just going to be like. Oh we'll be broke up I I'm betting that this is not a big deal. This is crazy I've been into. This is like a lot of people to the school I just. I've never known anybody ever done. Never known anybody who's like went to college as a couple of like state schools like my high school but not my graduate from high school with my freshman year like a mass ask. Yeah I I don't think it's a New York that well suny school a definitely a thing kids up there right. Yeah probably not but most states have state. School system wouldn't be crazy to end up same school. That's such a bad. I mean that may be the case. But that's GONNA be messy. Yeah I am this but like I guess. If you disobey you know you blend in yeah I get to see each other every fucking day but as far as his actual the answer like like. I said you're not gonNA leave because you're playing football and I don't think you are within. You can't go to someone say you're not you're not allowed to yeah. You can't do that. It's not a bar night. It's it's like right. It's their decision and and you're right. She's probably going for you but she's GonNa say to.

As we did the stand ups and everyone that did the stand ups had an option for an hour. So Dion. Cole Nicky Nate have all done hours. I'm sure Beth unfortunately far far behind I'm a generic white dude I wouldn't work on net flicks. I disagree with that I think would be like fucking Murphy does standpoint eh but. Hbo Is the one that I wanted. It's the it's the one thing where I was like. It's a special. They're doing seven of them You know like Gary Coleman Little Row L.. There's like a bunch the people that I loved at dinner and I'm like yeah walk. Yes I'm Yup and then showtime was cooled. It and Netflix was cooled. Enough is like all right.

Yeah burning the Dan soder bridge. Yeah I've known for a while so it was nice. It was it was really cool of him to be like that you know and Yeah and the. HBO IS LIKE WE'RE GONNA turn it around the turn around on. This is so fast. That's the crazy shit about this whole thing. Yeah taped October out. First Week of December in October twenty third. You said you know you stripped it down and it's pretty one Mike One man. There's not even a stool and water. Hey I didn't realize that you should. You should just yells talking about Matt. This is Ted talks with screaming babies. Daddy's dead it's fucking every this is what. Hbo is now stuff crazy. Neighbor like fucking from billions of comparable. Got that the Dead Dad's stuff so out. Everyone in the Dan. You'll see on the special. I mean you do it in such a way. Hey where it's like. It's a thing that if anybody else would bring up. My Dad passed away in your dad. fucking dead crowd or people are people reacting like Holy Shit. She hit. I mean I've had that joke very hard to get To build it to work to get some crowds just like all right man. I'm sorry fuck you go sorry. Yeah but are kind of A precursor or a great like a training to get that job. Oh Tori was when I did what I did. This is not happening. Our fear saw me do the story about me getting robbed and he was like you've got to do that on my show. Go work it out like a bit so I went on the road and I worked out the story of getting robbed because a lot of people are like. Here's a point where I'm hog tied. I got a forty five to my head and you know so I was actually thinking you. Would you do that for this special that I kind of wanted to leave. That alone is like a little like The Best Story. Yeah that was me. I'd be like I'm playing the hits. I'm doing the Russian Jill. I'm doing the fucking Bob Plan. All right let's bring them all. Do what the Russian yeah. It was one of those things whereas like I in between doing Netflix in the HBO Our News. Nice to put out that story of getting robbed and haven't punched up to be like there. There's something where now I can go work on the hour and there was a moment whereas like maybe maybe I Maybe I'll put that in the hour but it was just it was good solo piece but it taught me how to like kind kind of breach subjects where people are uncomfortable This guy's got a gun to his head next. Chill trying to tell you I'm standing here saying saying joke. I'm like I'm telling the story here I get out. Yeah because I think people like sometimes they're empathy can be wired different and they're like so did dad's that's why I say in the special people with Dad's loved it de Jokes. It's the people that don't have two dads that are like I don't know my friend's father whether it's like. I Bet your friend finds this joke. Funny I think there'll be people make that shit right. I mean that's the way I think there's a little corner my special just like dude. If you make fun of the there's really nothing to be mad about now I have. I have a friend who passed away when I have a new friend. Come until he my friend circle and we'll talk live with them and the WHO is at all right buddy. He's dead laughing. They just like turn to fucking ball milk. Oh my I'm sorry sir. Three loss is five. We're fucking making fun of most. I fucked up things I've ever done on a date. I was dating this girl. And we're out to dinner and she was asking me about my family and I was like yeah you know I had a half sister. And she's it she's like. Oh yeah and I was like yeah she she died when I was sixteen. And she's like Oh my God go. I'm kidding she's a trial lawyer and she goes. Oh no I'm kidding. She's actually dead and she was like hall and it was like the weirdest Dave a girl for a while so eventually talked about. I was like I told her. Explain to my I just saw the opportunity and I was like why not see. See you pull it back and then be like not in reality but she laughed about it but she was like. Oh my fucking God standout line or a job. They've never heard before while. Yeah my dad. No she's not yes she is. What a year? What our Yoyo? She's like Oh God fan that guess what taper. Rabbi fire turns out when we both drank it was fireworks. Probably not a good thing. The funniest bit I think of the new special is That you give please please. Don't leave me head. Yeah I mean the self awareness of the whole thing asano locked up suck but what ever. I don't give a shit my mouth on her worst body. I wanted to call the special button I swear to God did you did you. You just figured out. This is all about this podcast because this is like up to impress today and I have to be like. HBO's area even. I could. I could tell you the the conversation condition with my manager about this so Shane Gillis was with me in it was after the S. and L. thing like we're in Philly and we're hanging out in. He's he's in the same management company as me so manager knows and so I WANNA call my special button. And they're like yeah they're they're saying no sued. You have another name and I was like now call. But then they're like okay. What if we can't call but much either you're gonNA call it but much or I'm GONNA call it columbine to electric shooting and the opening is going to be? Shane and I walk it. In Cleveland hairstyle in trenchcoats. Joking right please tell your jugular. Do do me. Shane and Brian six in the green room laughing. So hard at that. I just think of my manager being like no that is what is he doing what I interested Shit so you knew it was a joke like to call by two. Electric shooter was unbelievable. I said a Gif of Eric Harris and Cook and clean bowled walking in their jackets. And that'll be Shannon. I in the interest. No no no but then eventually they're like no they can't can't do it because a marketing reasons they can't call it but much. Yeah I mean I can put it on the MTA line. I want people to watch. I was GONNA say business is still business at the end of the day that would be well the unofficial name. I think that's such a good because it's like the whole point is comedy special as as just jokes and I'm not telling anyone how you should have opinions on like there's really very little opinions in the special as far as my own opinions on things but I'm not telling people like to think this way I'm Kinda like hey you probably think this way. If you're not a dick or this is kind of how I look but I was like kind of refreshing. They but I just wanted to be like you'll Miss Hughes could call that would capture the oral B. Silly and people would be like what's it about I don't know much poisoning farting dad like babies. Try whatever you drive founded this I fucking winter. Scotland in walked around for a Monday Jane like we were walking out. I looked Sean Patton Jeffrey Bolinger and Caitlyn Cook and when you do the fringe festival you walk like fucking like an three fourths of of a mile just to the venue.

Mix One of the greatest like scams Hamza Denver polls like that's healthy healthy. US new offices or above a pot belly and add right there air potbelly. I'm like oh I know what I'm getting for. I go home big old a love it. It was It was it was a fun thing where now that I filmed it. And it's like out. It's kind of weird because I stayed off the road until January because I didn't want to go on the road and do the turnaround was so fast it was like I don't want to go on the road in just do jokes from the special people like I saw. That's how this one. Yeah yeah so it's like when I went back on the road in January. I'm hopefully I'll have some like thirty new. And then just faulk around for fifteen people show him bills are building again when you go on the road because you do bonfire every day right we we do. I mean the road basically for all comics. It's Thursday through Saturday. Usually five shows one on Thursday to Friday to Saturday and then you hope to get to like theaters. Nate's at now we're just doing one night in a different city. Yeah you do like a city for five shows so bonfire. We built the bonfire to do Monday Tuesday Wednesday and then we do too on Tuesdays in one of those airs on Thursday. Ah we can go on the road talking workout man. Oh foreign I mean you guys have a show like it's this is it's very similar taste real like I would be getting high and going over to Jay's house in Washington Press Play War for my grandmother's electric in mortgage like doing that. It might as well. It's so it's funny shit. Do you do a lot of prep for that or is it just more like getting there literally smoke a joint in the text that we send each other all talking about this we. We did some show the other day. It was like Replan to talk about a clip. The clip of obamacare weeks ago. We were talking about like culture cancelled culture. We're going to do that. And then Mitt Romney also did something. Yeah all right. We're GONNA do like a little politics and halfway like right away. We're talking about how we we tried to soccer on Dixie. Yeah that's exactly our politics episode. I was standing up when I tried to and I was a kid. I just stood up and bent over only on your shoulders learning. He's like I'm the only person who thought and then the second breath on it. You feel like it's about to happen. Oh yes home about to suck this Dick Doc. Does your head getting a little bit of hot breakfast for Thirteen Mile Mouth. Having hot breath on your whole it starts becoming real. Maybe I work at this. Yeah Manson Yoga. Oh Man I get there six months of trying. I'm going to suck this. I'm GonNa blow me. I'm going to be an o a mobile lower case for the rest of my life. How often do do bonfire conversations become bits and that ever happened only one that made it in oftentimes Jane? I keep it real but the Hulk Hogan bit in the special was because Jay and I were watching the trailer for leaving Neverland Neverland in like thirteen seconds. Posit let me tell you right now could've fucked me easily and I was like Joe Montana Hulk Hogan Trish wants wants to leave me with them. Hang out of your heroes. I don't care as because you don't get that from that whole documentary talking about the point of like you'll meet. I was totally susceptible. I do that at my hero would have been like come on. This is how we make each other feel good ozone what's up the favorite line. One of my favorite lines of the special is the fact that I got to do. Let me tell your sorrows Yeah I think it's like Hulk Hogan I forget the lie I forget and my own joke dance orders not gonNa tell on you and it's like he hit that I was like the fact that you've got to do kind of a holster. Yeah I was happy to see that like working the like a wrestling thing into it. I WANNA know I'm interested to know what little Wayne Jimmy Buffett and whole cogan. If they see that special three of them in a room party that would be that'll LBJ content. Sounds like a super bowl party in Tampa general rule in Tampa fucking with Jimmy Buffett. Little Wayne in whole cogan. A hammered Hong said the N. Word More than freestyle. It told me chill next thing. I know fucking Jimmy. Buffett's drop collegue on Little Wayne. Dropped a big boot on the biggest super bowl parties. We're going to see JOE's yeah hope. So Gosh the news donohoe so we have the hardest three weeks. Fuck you guys we have. We have packers Raven Saints next. I mean that's a vertically termism. That's a measuring stick. Two out of three. We'll see you in federal. So that'd be unbelievable g Tom Brady. That would be that would be the most like ready for Game Tom. Brady's everyone's like cause us all the talk Massachusetts. That week was like fucking. Call Me Jimmy G.. Ah I WANNA fuck I fucking sex life is through the rock and roll a fucking nail and my wife. She's yelling Jimmy Kello- but our Al Brady Law. That one man I would. Oh man with a wouldn't be would be I think there's like his legacy is beyond reproach him yeah he'll be back for what he one that I actually would probably probably retired root for the Patriots in Super Bowl. I think he'll illegal. He'll be back for ten years and then it will get crusty. It'll get Jeff George crusty. It'll get like him playing for the books and like twenty twenty five Tom. Brady's on the fucking books just say gross thing you know what I mean. Really they have that. That's the talk of town Boston. Is that like this is his last year with really because contracts up and he hasn't in played poorly this he hasn't he had brain candy. They still had Jimmy. I get that but like I don't know who would. He's so he needs big money. I I would. I don't think the Patriots offense struggled. I don't think there's a game you can look at me. Like that was his fault you know. You don't think he nine in one. Yeah thinking he renegotiates to be like. I think he'd probably take a little done at all. I think I think I saw a repeat Report today that his he's left like hundred sixty million dollars on table should not be fair by the way the. NFL stopped at this alignment. Who's going to shoot himself in the chest and he made four hundred two thousand dollars? Here's a good pulling guard for three years and then the next thing you know. He's murdered his family on the top level of parking garage. Like First Benoit's savemore talking doc in brain. He's like how much did he make you go. Forty three thousand dollars all three years combined. What are you fucking paying them? I'm like old seventies players and embrace. Yeah walked away from a nine hundred million dollar contract rich and good. Jill makes that in the summer Clarke off off. Yeah Dude it's pretty fucking crazy to think of the pay gap like the guards tackles shit. Now they get paid tackles. Let's get money centers and guards if you're an interior linemen get ready to fucking move me. SAN's whatever city you're going to get ready to take on the lock on Buckeye. All right. We're going on fair down what's up brother gets you in this Maxima. Things only got five thousand miles on it as a retread. Let's see what you got and we go. Let's go to the office the dog in the off season. And you're laying roofs and stuff like that. That's what it was back in the seventy eighty whereas the side-hustle NFL player. Yeah I was loved I. It's always like that story with. This guy was delivering sodas. And now he's a kick returner and he's like so he'll be back to delivering. Sodas AH GONNA make yeah. It's so players are so expendable in the NFL when they're not and then all of a sudden it's like but even big big contract guys you were that you thought you were going to think of forever disappearing. You're the guy signed a wants. The money is as soon as you fall. You're gone onto Dell. Where's he about to go to the house? He's he's on twitter yelling about it. I love it though. Keep testing Eh. Well no he's he's got five tests already this we do not to fuck with him he must be like a problem. Because yeah it's it's also like if you're doing is not working because you haven't shit season so I don't know do more some fucking doing. You should come back like super shredder and secret of the walking Jack Bell. Clearly I'd Stare Roy Yeah. I'm very excited about. We're talking talk about money but pay paying college athletes trouble. Did you see what just happened with the NCW basketball so James Wiseman blaze from Memphis and his potential or probable number one pick in the NBA draft. And I guess the Memphis boosters or or something like that helped. His family moved to Memphis so he can watch your a support system things like that. We've got busted so he was indefinitely. Suspended trash last night it. It was decided that it will be reduced to a twelve game suspension if he pays in eleven thousand five hundred dollar fine to a charity of his charity of his choice. So it's like they don't even give a fuck where the money goes. You can't have it. You know clearly the money like fuck eleven thousand five without a job to take yeah. He's just sells drugs to go. You know what we did we have in a bus. This opium is trying to pay Aa find their NC W as one of the most corrupt organizations like for real it really is. It's like those two and then like Eastern Europe politics. That's like the range of of it. I talked about this documentary saw on Netflix called schooled. Awhile back and it's all about the college athletics and how it became mm-hmm nine billion dollars a year that was made. I don't know what it is. Time billion dollar a year industry and all the speakers all the money it makes and the head of the NC Double A.. quit quit in the eighties. Eighty four eighty six like that in his retirement or quitting speech. He said what we're doing right now is bordering on becoming like illegal yeah or like slavery that was forty years ago it was the eighty S. That was the eighty S. HBO About the same Intro but but there was also like it was still thought of as a good way to get an education. Those people were like you're going to get an education out to get that money baby family of education education. They get. Did you see your fucking Trevor Lawrence quarterback today the picture of him in class. No He's giving a presentation. The presentation is giving us how I get my hair to look like this powerpoint and I feel like everyone should go to a major school just to watch how they treat. The athletes eighty is awesome Arizona. The basketball players I had a couple of they would just come in sleep. And you're like He. Did you drop thirty six now. We had a fucking stack of your top five. Hit A my it.

I lost a boatload of money on them choking like it was like the lead eight or something like choked in the elite eight. Oh Five my senior year to Illinois Brown during rush do. That's my favorite. One of my favorite stories of college ever was My friends had Tucson's party outside. My friends put an old school big screen. TV outside for the Oklahoma stays two thousand pounds. Read like six guys is moving and we put it in the back and it was Oklahoma State Arizona elite eight and everyone was like if we win. This we don't have a class on that day. 'cause someone else had been around since we went to the final four and a one when we lost the duke. And they're like I'm telling you if they go to the final four. They'RE GONNA call classes on that day. So everyone four and everyone was like fucking party. It was great we were up. Like fifteen channing. Frye hit a three with like ninety seconds left and everyone's like Thakin final. AW WE'RE GONNA file far and then you just saw d brown like faulk Arizona and I knew we're in trouble because it kept going to Bill Murray in I love Bill Murray's ever who doesn't have Bill Murray and he had an Illinois Shirt on and you style knows ah just started coming back in then They tied it and went to overtime and then they blew us out over time but right as we lose an overtime their neighbor that no one really liked. He's kind of like this kid from San Diego and he had a bunch of blow so they'd hang out with them. I never liked the guy he fucking in comes in through the backyard. Everyone's in the backyard watching this old school. TV We lose and everyone's silent. He's here. This kid go final already POPs. A bottle bottle of champagne gets to go get it. Thought it was over. Donner was over. Oh my gosh dude. I just remember like the drip off my eyebrows to staring at this kid being like what the fuck and he was like. Oh Him lose on. Your Shit was a couple of years ago. We hired a new kid. Mardi Mush Who has a parrot pet and it was his rally bird while degenerate gamblers? Doing livestream with this parrot. And there's a couple of years ago the Yankees was the play in game. Yeah by the time He. So he's commuting in a sanctuary and they probably one that though but when he he showed up with a parrot the elevator doors opened the old place and the Yankees were down like ten. Nothing out of the and he was like I'm here. I've got the bird and every Yankee fan was like faulk you. It does as he's holding a broomstick burt other side and he was just like that. You should be next to him on the L. I. R. Sister Lives in my sister's kids sick. I had to go out and see him back. Thank God James and like shut up. Shut up shut. What the fuck out? Hey listen I just saw my nephew. He's not doing well. I'll just go nuts. Go nuts on public. Public transportation with a pair was good with billions season. Five days. We're making it is that I mean that's how are you GONNA GO I. I don't know man I don't know they always say fuck in the way they're able to twist shit up in. Yeah I don't know man but season five is going to be interesting. We're two episodes in right now and it's fucking good good news on that. Did you expect to be like a consistent like season Gardner when he first did it. No I I when I first for season one At the beginning billions they signed me for like five episodes and then I was screen testing. SNL So there were like if you get SNL bowl right off the show Or maybe even be on the show but then I ain't get SNL and they're like all right we're gonNA have six episodes fucking missed better for you but it would have been way you better for my life the way I would be hammered right fires and fired. I'd be somewhere just drunk. Hey Fuck you give my vision gene. Good it's good to take L. sometimes and that was a good l. to take it but when we started seeing one one or the other guys at ax cat to start to work in a bunch in in when that's the case like we had got more lines than give them a fee house I guess and then The addition of Taylor and season to just kind of like can they came in as my intern and they did. They did a good job of moving that storyline along state parallel. Where I'm I'm Taylor's number one officer. I remember when you were kind enough to to stop by our first live show and then you kind of just bounced afterwards everyone in the little meet-and-greet like it's so fucking crazy that sodas like puts on his backpack and then goes home. Yes yea on fucking billions. So he's working on his roommate shouted out good materials. Israel's you might as well just how I You know there's been people that have shit on it and it's also like you don't fuck no my life. I'm taking care of my grandma. My mom I'm I and I'm also like I'm not an idiot. This shit that I'm doing is temporary temporary until it's done and then it's done and then you gotta move on so it's like when people like yeah you got a roommate. It's like I leave with one of the best joke writers in comedy. Mike Vecchione is the guy that David L. goes to. It's the guy that other people goes to where like to check jokes. That's how he's fucking brilliant alien. He's brilliant and he's not only one of my best friends but one of the best comics in New York so living with him. I wake up at Running on my aol and do a bit about this. You know it's like like living at a gym working out and you're like why would I move out of a gym for what just so I can have a nice place it's like. I don't really need a nice roommates. Yeah I'm fine and you know what we're both on the road enough that a lot of times. I've had the apartment for myself for the last ten days so it's like these come home and we got stuff to talk about. I'm going to give a little fucking fat edible funded a wig out. It's like one of those things where Living with a roommate is we live in New York City. It's a little more a comment if I was in Fucking des Moines then I lived with a roommate you by how much drugs on every every blog I ever wrote about out to roommates in Florida someone gets murdered with an axe every and for me. It's like Mike I I loved dude. And there's always like there's a person event to where I can kind of gauge. How often situation nations and the industry knows people? He knows the history. So if I got a problem with someone and I come in and I'm like what the fuck he could also he can go with me and be like Nah. I mean you're just five of that or you can go and be like I don't know maybe it'd be crazy about that. I trust him so I'm like all right. I also think it's it's almost weirder like where the there is almost a cap age. Where so you've probably kill you over at something either refrigerator? It's also like I find it much easier to have a roommate now than I did. At twenty three they were a party in Chile. died like there's no one place again. Hang on your room do your thing. I'll say you know what I mean. We're like Kuku Thakin back in. Wake up I remember dude. I lived with handsome Pete. Shout out to pete name he would bring home some just brought home a auto ladies and one time he came home and he was just he was like Jack and he was just in European underwear laying on the couch like like this watching. TV walks and he goes. I was just like with this girl and I go. Hey throwing a shirt. What are they doing here? I'M GONNA lose. I'm immediately yeah. I'm not surprised she was like I'll show on the couch. But one time he brought these girls home and my girlfriend and I were sleeping in my windowless room on my mattress on the floor for it was like four fifty and they were like all ou- like talking or whatever and that's when you're like I'm GonNa fucking kill someone and I opened. The door warns drunk. I was like Pete's shut your Thakin mouth just turned thirty so I was like shut up a little girl. They shut your mouth. Pizza parties are for Good Golfer. Pat Girls a four hundred fifty in the morning but that was when we kicked him out. Because we realized you you mike and I were like we could live together. Mike older than me. And we're like we need a quieter place in Pete still boozing and partying God bless them down on that page and then we looked for a place in Queens is that was at the same price as our apartment that we're paying for three people but with two bedrooms and everything we found was smaller than what we had sort of like. We called our landlord like I was just the two of us things like all right. Yeah go forward. Lived in the same place for like thirteen years. Wow that's et crazy now like my neighborhood and everything is so what people should only. Yeah whatever I'm saying I'll probably will eventually Ohio personal space and maybe have it fucked. Why give it to me and if I can live with someone that I liked that I respect? That's great at the job we do and I can get better living with them and fuck and hang out with them all the time and personal fucking yet and stack cash. All right we get it. It's fine let's do one answer the Internet question here before we go of a fucking gaining one here and then we'll do a full. You gotta run back and do a full session here.

MLB's 60-Game Season, Making A Bid For The Mets And More

"Little did I know the when I joined. Kaiser Permanente that it would be on my top ten list for what has made this year great. I can see my physician. I can be referred to the lab I can be referred to the pharmacy on same building. You got it all I mean it's the quality of care. It's compassionate care. It's convenience of gear instrument. Every medical cases unique combination, including the mid-atlantic states to one surfaced rockville Maryland two, zero, five two. Good morning, boomer, our you. I'm doing great gio nine days till July first, so can the players show up by July first back? They WANNA. Show Up. I don't know you know. has been very difficult to deal with part of me admires the players sticking together I mean because the NFL players would never stick the other, not like this. I mean the entire rank and file. File you know Trevor Bauer. Basically said that they're driving this thing right off a cliff together by the way he said together mean the players and the owners but July, nine days away so i. don't know where everybody is I. Don't know about coming back into the country. And all that other stuff given that I'm sure. Some of the guys went home to the Dominican and maybe. Some other places where it would be a little bit difficult getting back into the country, but you know at the end of the day. Rob Manfred has no choice here now. The Union say we don't agree to any of this stuff. When it comes to the protocols and basically blow this whole thing up, so I do think that the the owners tried to negotiate in. Good. Faith I don't think that they should be worried about losing A. Grievance the moment that the union files agreements because you know that's the game at the the the the the unions playing right now. They're all about filing this grievance. That's that's. What their nuclear option for them? For the owners would be. I guess not playing, but it sounds like they're going to get their commissioner to put together a schedule and they're going to try to play so I I'm I'm sick of it myself I hope they play I hope I. Get the chance to see baseball this year. Now in truncated form, the other thing too is now since the players haven't signed off on the grievance thing and all that other stuff you know, the H. will be played or use this year, but all that stuff moving forward to next year we'll revert back to where we were prior to this year where the would be taken out of the national, league so. Explain to me this. This is the thing that I can't figure out in everything that I've read from last night to tonight. What happens if the players? Association decides to reject the health proposal of the protocols for then what? Seems like everybody was celebrating. There was baseball or whatever it's a relief that this is over, but the players those as you could very easily come back. We don't really believe that Major League. Baseball is keeping US SAFE with their safety protocols, so we're going to pass on this season i. To me. This is on very shaky ground. Still are well, so you have the National Women's soccer league, and they're getting ready to start with their tournament in a in Utah and the Orlando. Pride basically has pulled out of that tournament because the number of their players and front office. People I guess and staff people have come down with COVID NINETEEN DOWN IN ORLANDO. Where were they prior to? You know getting ready to work out or go to practice. There were in a bar hanging out. You know socializing. This is how they came down with the Kobe nineteen, so there has to be personal responsibility on in regards to everybody everybody, not just baseball players and. And football players and people around the sport. Everybody has got to have some responsibility of taking them taking care of themselves and protecting others in our society and I. Know There are a lot of people out there that don't believe in wearing masks and all this other stuff. It obviously has shown that it has worked social distancing aspect has worked, and we may be just be able to get rid of this thing without a vaccine if we just continue to do what we're doing, but it more and more people. I'm kind of torn between this because more and more young people that get it. You'd like to think there's going to be heard immunity. Maybe it would decrease in. An effectiveness or The symptoms would decrease. However you know we. We don't know all those answers yet and I still think you know. Kids are going to be kids and. These young guys and gals that make a lot of money that are great athletes. Know. They're not GONNA die from this disease. They're going to deal with or this virus. They're going to deal with it, and they're going to get through it and they're going to be able play, but they also have to be smart about what they're doing and how they're doing it and what it means to the rest of the League in one or two or three or four in this. This case players come down with the virus and I'm not even asking if they are legitimately concerned about the safety protocols, I kind of think that they're going to use that as a chip to not agree to. This commissioners implemented season, and then end up filing their grievance, or we're not gonNA have baseball at all. It's not it's not so much that I actually think that they're going to. To come back and say you know I. Don't think this is good enough. Because, of course, they're going to have everything covered in that proposal that we talked about four weeks i. just think that as long as they're still in out for the players. They're going to take it and this could be out. You but I. Don't know the thing about it. Is The march twenty? Sixth Agreement says. says. The commissioner has the right at an impasse to impose a season I mean that says that in that March twenty six agreement, so if you're looking at that March twenty sixth agreement, and as the players have looked at it when it comes to prorated salaries, but I guess they don't WanNa look at it when it comes to that the commission can put a season together I don. T pick and choose what you think works best for you and your side and your agenda. It tells me that the commission has the right to do this and they've negotiated. It has been in good faith. Bad faith I mean they basically said sixty games? Why is that? Why is that a bad thing? And then the union came back and said seventy. Games Union came off the eighty, one hundred and twenty games I think it started with. Partial probation and all this other crap. If any arbitrator looks at this and says you know the owners are saying look, we only have two teams right now. That are allowed to have fans in the stands, and we don't know whether or not we'll be able to have fans in the stands and find that. Somehow the owners are. screwing the players out of this situation right now the way I sit here, I see like I see it as like Trevor Bauer sees it now. I think he is honest and the fact that he's holding players accountable and the Players Association. He wants to play. It sounds like he's willing to play sixty games. He's willing to make the prorated salary and the big fights coming after. After the twenty twenty one season. That's when the big fight supposed to be here if they can't get this one right under a pandemic. How the hell are they going to get the next CBA right well, not so so again like I, said part of me is like really I admire the players sticking together because nine hundred eighty seven when our players had a chance to. Stay together and really push the NFL faster than we did. It turned into a mishmash and a mosh pit of people like Joe Montana and Lawrence Taylor, crossing the picket line, and basically screwing the entire league, and trying to keep your players together when players of that magnitude of crossing the picket line hard, that was these players. Are these players here now in baseball? I'm not doing that and I would say that. The NBA doesn't have to worry about it because they're partners with the NBA already. They're already got a great situation there, but I mean if you're if you're the NHL, you're. You're the NFL PA? You're looking at this and you're watching it very closely and the thing that impresses me most about all of this with the exception of a few bad tweets and a few bad interviews early on the major league. Baseball Players Association has done a great job of staying together on this thing. Yeah all right. You want to say that's admirable, but it is both of these sides really needed to compromise a little bit better to not get to this point. I mean the fact that they couldn't. Come to an agreement in this type of climate in the commissioner had to implement a season, and we're still wondering if there's going to be one because they had to ask the players association do two things now you know what is Tony Clark. Say to his guys now all right or whatever let's go. Let's our report digital on July first. Let's get this thing started. We're okay with the safety protocols, and let's go forward this, and then we'll file our grievance, and then at that point, we'll get back the money that we. We believe that we're owed and we should have gotten during the season anyway I mean. Is that as tact or does he just say you know we're really going to stick it to these guys? We're going to come up with a bunch of stuff. We're not comfortable with in this safety protocol manifesto and we're GONNA. Tell them we're not playing. And essentially we're going to go on strike again like we did. In one thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, four to really set the groundwork and get the leverage for the CBA talks coming up. Twenty twenty one I. I don't see that I think there's too many players that need the money and want the money I. Just don't see that I can see them. Having a strategy where we can get to some sort of grievance I don't think grievance will pass, but. I just don't see that the players in this case who still stand to make a lot of money don't get me wrong. I mean still you know still guys making over ten million dollars. In this in this agreement or this, whatever rob Manfred decides to put out there with the probation and all that stuff, so to be interesting to see what rob Manfred does. It really does and I do believe and you and I both know Rob Manford. Because we all up there in Tarrytown, and it's a great sleepy hollow. It's a great. It's a great time. He does a great job for his local community and everything else, but this is his business. This is what he does for a living. He is a Labor lawyer on the side of management, and he's fighting for a group of owners where I'm sure. One third of them are hardcore. I'm sure one third of them could be swayed one way or the other and. I'm just give whatever they want. Let's let's play and I would imagine. The Yankees are one group would say the mets are in another. Given given the financial situation with both teams and speaking of the mets. Jeff Wilpon came out and said well. You know there are about five now bidders for the New York, mets and I guess we could. Say? We can confirm that that's the case. Would you say yeah? I mean as far as the big names that are out there with Steve. Cohen is back in. We know that micro Poli is in as of yesterday. We know that and we've got Vincent Viola. Who is also in the Florida panthers owner, so those are three big names, and along with a rod and J. Lo who gonNa have to acquire one of those people. To help them out with their bid, so yeah, I mean this is going to happen at this point, I mean there's just too many billionaire circling I mean this is like gay. Vulture is over a road kale at this point where these guys are swooping in and then a rod and J. Lo are. You know they are so deep into this thing. Excuse me that they keep. They won't give up. I mean every five days. You hear they're. They're trying even harder to get the mets. I ask you this. Are you going to allow a rod to run your baseball team. I is he going want to do the day to day? Jeeter or do you want to be like the now? We're. Making that. We're making that assumption. Up and be a celebrity. What are we doing? Why is he involved? And wires ALP. Because? He thinks he can make some money on it. He loves baseball and he's someone that has always probably dreamt of having a significant chunk of team doesn't mean that he wants to sit in an office all day buying a computer I. Don't know I mean listen I. Understand that you think that he he might because he loves the game so much, and he'd probably be heavily involved. Just I have not heard that yet from him means. Does that mean that j? Lo's also going have an office there and she's going to be helping out in the amateur draft. Don't know. Does he become? Know Derek jeter was vilified for all the things that he did when they took over the Miami Marlins. We're talking about one of the strongest baseball markets in the country as opposed to one of the worst, if one of the expectations expectations now to spend two hundred twenty five million dollars. is a former player going to be able to do that? Well. You know he's not. He's not the general manager. He's part of an ownership group. That's going to have a larger wealthy person that is really going to be backing it. There's no doubt about that. He's not going to be nice person buying the mets. I I've met my think, maybe once or twice in my life, but I just don't know him very well. He's big saint. John's supporter went to Holy Cross high school. He's a local guys right there in Queens and everything else. It'd make a lot of sense I know. He sold vitamin water. What for about four billion the Coca Cola and that's great I just. A guy of that ilk with that kind of money. He wants somebody else running the team or does he want to be actively involved in running the team I would think that he would probably want to be actively involved. I, mean anybody who is especially when you're a lifelong mets fan. That's where we talked about what Steve Cohen Steve Cohen was going to do that like dip his toe in the water thing and not have controlling interest for five years or whatever that nonsense was with. With the Wilpon, this guy gets whatever he wants when he wants. And you're telling me. He's going to sign up for that deal. Know guys like that. Get what they want. And then they end up doing what they want. So yeah, I would be surprising to me if he weren't the guy who was calling the shots, but this stuff will be discussed them sure with a rod and J. Lo. They don't have enough money to buy. Themselves don't but that's the point the point is. Like you gotta be careful. Who Your partners are you know in you gotTA. You gotTA. Make sure that everybody understands their role especially. If you're the person that's putting up the majority of the money, the two billion dollars I mean I don't know. Maybe maybe a rod and J. Lo are trying to become managing general partners like George Steinbrenner. Did you know like Paul Brown? Did with the bengals where they put in less money, but they're in charge of the operation. I don't want that. He had no kidding. Want that you know. Maybe they give Jaylo like a monthly. Show their city field through the summer like they do at Billy Joel at the garden. That something you also throw into the mix if you're if you're Jaylo, so she doesn't have to tour outside of new. York and it's a great place to go. Watch one of her concerts. And then I I saw this CBS sports network. Just put it up as well. Somehow Dave Portnoy of Barstool got into this mix yesterday like I have no idea if it of. A real or not? But I can't even i. mean you're telling me micro? Poli Alex Rodriguez Jennifer Lopez in Dave Portnoy by the mets. My Lord that sounds like that would be one hell of a board meeting. Be a lot of people on different pages I would think. What a disruption! I say KFC as General Manager Yeah. That'd be great I, mean he? He definitely I mean he's the same mindset and he's a as we do. An diehard mets fans yeah, no doubt about it that he probably doing the things that we'd want. But Yeah I don't know the way I process this yesterday. And now you're poking holes in my optimism, but was that the cool factor would come along with a rod and J. Lo, which is which is something that the mets could use the clan. Then what does that the cold? What exactly does that mean? She's over fifty. He's all forty. What we talking about without eating. Okay, am get the job, rule or somebody to be part of then that now all of a sudden. We'll get some goofy rule. Get somebody like that. Yeah, how do you think John? Rule is I have no idea how rule hasn't had a hit in the radio since I was in high school. Oh, I'm sorry, okay? For older guy who still cool. Jimmy Twenty. Year old. Give me a twenty three year old. That's an influence her. twenty-three-year-old influencers not gonNA have enough cash to be able to buy this one of the Kardashians. Buying now noted older cool guys like me you're you know Jaylo is still at the top of her game I'm. Not Saying that she's not I'm just saying that you know, maybe you're. You're saying cool factor. Yeah, without a doubt, I love that I love that angle of it like the mets. The mets I root for too many teams that are like the bought of every joke and I believe that because these to. Iran has done to go from. Zero to where he is now is amazing, but these two are revered by a lot of people. They are now I think that they're narcissistic and they found each other like a magnet. The two most narcissistic people on Earth, and it was just like perfect, but you know, and I'm not the biggest fan of either one of them, but they are revered, so you have them there and it's sort of like all right. The mets are no longer like the cheap laughingstock, and then behind that behind the curtain is the billionaire who's going to swoop in and treat the mets. Organization that they should be so like that to me. Looking at it with the glass half full is what I thought I was getting with. Who tried this dopey way of running a sports franchise bringing in the celebrities and make it the hot thing to do and. That's exactly right. How's that working for you? They've also made bad decisions with coaches. That's not has nothing to do with the ownership grope. Stephen Ross Stephen Ross I mean for crying out loud that guys as successful as they come. He just has made bad decisions. Who is hired you? Tell me that they were Ross. Want to call him right now and ask him about how that real estate deal so doing our how you understand what listen come on a Lotta stuff that has been affected by corona virus right, but my point is. Bring like this. What I want is I want good baseball people making good baseball decisions. Giving Jacob degrom the contract that he got and when you look at it now compare it to Garrett Cole and and some of the top end pitchers in baseball. You like man. That's smart that that is a smart move. So why do they do that with new ownership? Maybe they can, but it doesn't have to be built around like the sexiness of you know doesn't have to be, but if it doesn't have to be, but if it is I'm I'm here for it. I, am and plus I. Just I'm tired of the whole wilpon thing where complaints in this and how many times of Emmy calls, we take in with the. The coupons in I'm just. I'm tired of it, so we can move on. We can complain about another ownership group This is something that mets fans of dream for a long time, and you know basically I mean. Anybody who's not what we have now is is the predominant thought from the fan base. Yeah, I know I know. I'm standing right there with them. the only thing that came out of yesterday's sewer pit of social media. was back and forth between Marcus May and of course Jamal Adams and I don't know what the Hell Marcus may is doing. I don't know why he decided to inject himself into this whole thing, and then reading the mentions after Marcus maze common to Jamal. Adams about having all this false love. Come his way now. Is Monumental idiocy to me because these guys are beloved by Jet Fans, and they are treating jet fans like trash and I have no idea why they feel like. They need to put their opinions out on social media because they look like dopes right now. Yeah, I mean Marcus May I didn't have as big of a problem with what mark is. May said is Jamal Adams quote tweet where he basically said the thing I'm GonNa miss most is ball in next to you like all right. We're already out the door. I mean you can't trade yourself. Jamal I'm sorry. I know you're trying your best, and you're becoming the big distraction in the world, so becomes too big of a problem for the jets Dan I know the playbook. We've seen it a million times in the NBA. NFL players are starting to do it now. With a Tony Brown craziness jalen Ramsey's craziness. You're trying to do the same thing. But? You can't just make the assumption that you're GonNa end you put stuff out there on a consistent basis. I mean if you ever do come back to the jets. It's GonNa. Beat some. Fences that have to be mended I. Just you know it to me. It's ridiculous as The point you're not gonNA. Win with guys like this. You just not GonNa Win I'm sorry. He's a great player. Though I'm not saying he's not a great player Odell Beckham Junior's group where individual plan tastic players, but I said there was different, and you want something which one knows something, every fan of the new. York jets will tell you that he's a terrific player. They love the guy. They want the guy to stay here. They don't want the guy to go anywhere else what game he is playing is. I don't know how to describe it other than idiotic it's. Like what he is doing, and what and the way that he is distancing himself from the franchise and I mean just like if you're jet fan if you are if you are passionate and I have a lot of family friends, and even my daughter's a huge jet fan i. mean there I'd be pissed at both of these guys and Marcus made the so I'm getting all this false love now because. Now all of a sudden. They love me because you're leaving and all this other crap. I believe that I believe I dunno time output like Marcus has been hurt since he's got here until last year and he played well last year under Greg Williams. Saw Marcus may was somewhat capable of and I. Think a Lotta Jet Fans. We're feeling really good about that. And then all of a sudden out of the blue. He decides to get on the social. Media Sewer peg and put out his points of view about how he's rubes receiving all this. And that didn't bother me at all. Because you know that's why 'cause. That's what he got because a bunch of people so that you was leaving and he's fans like. Hey, we love you markets. We love you would never leave us all. We love you and he decided to comment on it. That's I mean compared to what Jamal Adams. has made a blip on the radar saying, is he? He got himself involved when he didn't need to. That's. The you know and I don't know I. Don't know what the Hell's going on. It just it's. These players are trying to make the jets bad. That's the point. That's what they're doing. I don't know. I mean I've been over the jets now since they moved to New Jersey I don't know twenty five thirty forty times. Whatever and I look at that building I. Look at that set up on my damn. This would be like the greatest place in the world play. This is like Heaven over here in New Jersey. I never say that right now. Though I ever say that. No, you are not a heaven. His New Jersey kind of going by the way rank fiftieth in states when it came to Patriotic Love I. Don't know if you saw that. was new. York was forty ninth in California forty-eight. No, we all understand, but anyway the the point being is that that place is awesome. Great Facility. It's a great place to live. Okay they're in the state of flux again because they got a new coach general manager. Eventually. These guys are going to get it right and I for the life of me. Don't understand why. They have to take an again. Marcus made did this on his own. As made into anything that the head, sorry you're. Jamal Adams backers total. Stood one silly tweet. He didn't he didn't. He didn't disparage organization embarrassing organizations. He's not asking you know. He went after the fans well now we. Put but I believe him. Leave Eighty, but really go after the fans, but he just said. If. If you look at his mentions. You'll see that. The fans are no thanks like you know what I'm saying like. There's some things that can matter and there's some things that don't like Marcus may tweeting that out and looking at his mentioned is who cares that sewage which Amal Adams is doing real reprecussions. It does because he's trying to force his way out, and he is going to probably get his way, and the jets have a big decision on where he's going to go and what the compensation is going to be marcus maze silly tweet. A bunch of blockades who are responding to it means nothing. They're. They're the foul people on twitter. That's no. That's not what I said, but I'm just saying people on twitter say whatever you understood this already like scrolling through mentioned is the most useless thing in the world to do. And there's an temperature that is being taken in. Those mentions there's normally normally I. Don't do that, but in this case I had to see it because and the reason I had to see this because I'm sitting here going. Why why is Marcus may feel like he needs to tell the world that he's getting all this fake loved now when an accident, all jet fans ever wanted from him was to be healthy and to play, and when he did play this past year, he showed that he competed pretty damn good. Football player in Greg Williams system and jet fans are pretty excited about their safety tandem. It's a matter of fact. They drafted a safety this year in the draft. Draft, and maybe it was because they figure they couldn't keep both safeties, because both these are going WanNa ton Adele and you can't pay your safeties. That much much your. Yeah, that's probably why we talked about that at the time all right? We've hit every topic today, so the show's over. We got it all in and a half an hour, so we've got nothing else to talk about. We'll just have jerry three more times. And then that's it we. All right boomer and Geo on the fan CBS sports network in radio DOT COM.

"It's boomer and Geo on the fan and the CBS sports network. boomer sizing Greg G. and audio boomer and Geo on the fans simulcast across the country on CBS sports network again wherever you are via radio dot com a Good Friday morning as most of the tri-state areas hunkering down for a tropical storm. That is going to last all day today. Hopefully, it doesn't get too nasty out. There moves through a quickly. There were some big local sports stories yesterday in a big national sports story. This sale of the mets is going to happen. It's going to happen soon and it. It may still happen to the man that I was so fired up about buying the mets a couple of months ago I thought he was going to change. All of our fortunes I thought that he was the guy that it was going to make the mets into the Yankees, he was the guy that was going to go out and get bets and put him out in Centerfield for my team, and he is closing in as he has the biggest bid. Yesterday doesn't mean that it's done, but had the. The biggest bid yesterday and from everybody around the situation. It seems like Steve. Cohen is poised to take this situation and make it his own also big news yesterday with college football as the big ten as decided to go just conference only so I. Don't know how that's GonNa Stop Corona virus that is the first step in what's going to look like a different football season as we know, as we continue to venture through the summer hurling towards football, which we have no idea it's going to be played or. Or not good morning, boomer. How are you? I'm doing great. Joe And it was good news to see that these Steve Cohn is Buchan up here and two billion for the team in another two billion for S. N, Y. as we sit here today, you know, of course you've got J., Jalen and a rod at one point seven billion they have a very impressive list of investors, so the big question is now not only is who's giving the most money who wants to buy what? There are a lot of things that you gotta get through. You GotTa get through the debt that the mets have right now. What what are their? What their finances? What does that look like? What are you assuming? Is this just a you know? An all cash deal that is is going to be paid to the Wilpon, and then you assume the debt that's left behind. I mean there's a lot of things that are going on here. There's really no easy way to kind of describe how. A, transaction of this magnitude is actually going to go through, but if I had to guess I would guess that it would be Steve. Cohen's simply because he's the guy that has the money, then he has to also get through. Like, he's gotten through us. You know we we don't care. We just want the richest guy air that's GonNa. Take this thing to another level, and we took the words right out of my mouth. He's got through our background checks now. Background checks we care about is how much money does he have? And how much is he going to spend and we? And and bring them into the upper echelon of of Major League baseball teams when it comes to paying for their further roster. Now here's the thing. He's got to get through the be owners. You know he's had some controversy in the past. He's paid some major fines. He's done some you know. His company had done some. Very questionable things that was roll. It wasn't really him. It was more of his underlings and all that other stuff, so there's a whole. That's still has to happen before. All the bids are in and all that other stuff. I can't imagine that the Wilpon family would accept bids from somebody that they don't believe would be able to get through the store owners and everything else. You. Know because when the when the owner start getting involved in. This happens in every sport. You know they WANNA make sure that they're bringing in somebody who is like minded when it comes to dealing with players an understanding the. Financial mechanisms and going to work with the Pittsburgh, pirates Kansas city royals the San Diego padres you know all these different small-market teams have different ways of doing things other than the Yankees. And there was one executive, and again he remained anonymous, but it did make a lot of sense to me when he said what he said he goes. We already have to deal with the Yankees and that's. That's a lot to deal with. Because the Yankees spend a lot of money, they push the market. They they make it a lot easier for the players in terms of the money that they're willing to spend. I could also say the dodgers do that, too, but I saw this, and there was a Mike Vick Caros. A column or I saw the the quote in the quotas we. We have learned to live with what the Yankees are as part of everyday business. I'm not sure anyone is quite ready. For what having two teams acting like the Yankees in the same market might mean for the rest of us. Okay fine, but I mean then get out of the business then because this is what it is, there is no salary cap. Big Market teams always have more. More money to spend. It has been like this for a long time and I don't want some other executives. Some other place saying that Oh boy. This stinks because the cheap as wilpon are on the way out, and it's crazy. BILLIONAIRES GONNA. Come in and be spending like drunken sailor i. don't care what you think. Think about the fan base all of us that have been sitting around. Around on the sidelines while big ticket, free agents are out there in the mets pretend to be a part of it or the trade away your prospects, and then take on money and horrible contracts be able to to have anybody who gets paid above fifteen million dollars on the team or the fear of losing guys like Jacob. degrom repeat Alonzo when their contract is all these things that we. We have thought about over the last number of years especially after Bernie. Madoff and I gotta worry about some other executives. Oh, I don't know what it's going to be like. If the mets spend like the Yankees spend well then tough, and then get out of the business. Do something else going to Cap Sport and stop bitching about it. That just drove me crazy that quote, it's not. Not, I mean Okay and who knows if if if Steve Cohen's GonNa, come in and spend like the Yankee. There's teams all over that spend like crazy and with the revenue sharing, and if the mets become like a behemoth like the Yankees, then all these other small market teams benefit from that too, and we know that spending money doesn't always translate into wins so I just I don't. Don't. There's already going to be people Steve Cohen's. You could just see it now. You're right. These other these other owners. Oh Steve Cohen's GonNa. Come in, and he's. GonNa, spend all the money's going to bully US around, and they're going to complain about it and only in pro sports where a guy who's willing to spend four billion dollars four billion to on the team to on NY. A bunch of other guys are like we don't want that in our in our business. Why wouldn't you I mean? This guy is about to to put a whole boatload of cash into the other team in the biggest market in the country, and these other guys are finding little things to do to complain about about how that's not going to be good for them. Stop it okay I wasn't trying to set you off I. Mean You just you off a little riff and I appreciate that I mean shows that you you got. A lot of energy, this Friday morning, and I know that the weather and all that other stuff I'm sure it's having a negative effect on you. Got ripped away from us once because of the whole stupid eighty percent wilpon thing, it's not going to get ripped away from us again. I'm not letting it. Be ripped away from us again. I will not allow that I think that's I. Think it's an awesome take. was pointing out was that there's more than just bids that count. There's a lot of other things that go on in a transaction of this size. Sure other thing to in one of the articles this morning. See who wrote it. These guys are all over it. Man So Joschka Kazman in Fort mackinac Ernie. Mac and Ernie mcnerney, so in their article and I don't know if fourteen got it or Josh cotton. It says that Jeff wilpon would prefer the J. Lo rod ownership groups I saw this to what does he care me? Because the whole? The Steve Cohen thing went south the first time around. Is that why because he thought that? Steve, Cohen Muddy the waters when that deal fell through I mean. Is there some sort of personal thing? Jeff Listen. You GotTa shot here to make a lot of money don't. Don't let your personal feelings get involved. You know how you win. In this situation you end up taking the four billion dollars. That Steve Cohen is ready to give you an another additional, too by the way which is insane to me that s and why it's GonNa be worth two billion dollars i. mean that's crazy. I did a couple of shows over there. They paid me seventy five dollars to do. And there were two billion dollars I. Guess so you mean? It took months to get that money too I given up on I called my agent. I'm going to pay me here. What the Hell's going on I got a check in the mail eight months later I. Did the Daily News Live set next Bob. Race man for thirty minutes. It took eight months to get seventy five dollars, and you tell me places where two billion dollars yeah. and. My Lord that watch all the met classics you want I mean. is a met band, so you can watch whatever he wants as long as he wants, and he can put it on his own television network. Mike! How does that happen? It doesn't make any sense to me. Jay Lloyd a rod by the. Arab become an employee of s N Y. I mean. Here's the thing. Steve Cohen is smart. He's offering four billion to entities. He's other people are only offering one point seven billion for one entity. Yeah I mean th the this whole. It's like a house of cards with the J.. Lo and a rod thing or do like okay. They searched for one group, and then they were in, and they were out, and now we got another guy and we're worth this much and I don't know what I'm GonNa be able to do if I am the the owner. Am I going to run the thing and it just seems like that's on shaky ground. All of the J J Rod. Whatever the hell you WANNA call it. That's on shaky Steve Cohen's coming. Go I want this I. Want this more than you. I wanted this the last time. You guys screwed it up. Up For me because you stupid for Kochta terms about five year control when I'm buying eighty percent of the team. Get the hell out of there with that. You're putting up for bid. I'm going to swoop in. Get you stupid. J. Lo A. Rod thing out of my face and I'M GONNA. Take this thing, and he better get it. He better get it because I mean he. Nobody wants more than him. And that's why I want. Is An owner I want I don't want an owner that test a coal up six billionaires to figure out how they're going to buy the team. I want an owner who like simul. You, WANNA DICTATOR WATCH! I don't want that's. Not Not quite I guess because. It's Kinda. WanNa guy that's GonNa make decisions and he's GonNa make decisions and not have to go and call his investors before they go. After a four hundred fifty million dollars deal with the with McKee bets whatever it is Yeah I. Want the Guy Yeah, right want that guy making that decision having that kind of money and being that bold, and that's what it's GonNa take. It's GonNa. Take One guy to do that. That's it's like David tepper down. He buys the Carolina Panthers Boom He's in. He starts making decisions. Yeah, just the coach gets rid of quarterback brings into new coach. quarterback, you know the whole thing. This is what you want. You want to David Tepper type as David. tepper becomes I think the richest owner in NFL. In the NFL today with his, obviously all of his billions and he is proactively taking trying to take the Carolina Panthers to the next level financially. This is that type. Of Guy, yeah. Absolutely. That's what I want. I WanNa I. WanNa. Modern Day George Steinbrenner without him calling into the Dugout and screaming at the manager during the game. I want the guy that you know is the boss and he's doing whatever it takes to win, and that's what I've. I've learned about Steve Cohen now. I mean we talk about some of the shaky past. Okay fine seems like there was some penalties there. He's moved on whatever the guy is free with a bunch of money to do what he wants with it, and he wants the mets right now, and that's that is exactly what I want as an owner because it's the stone opposite of what we've had now for a number of years the Wilpon wasn't always that way. We know I mean they used to be in on big free agency used to be a team and I know it doesn't always work, and I have to use that qualifier every time, but there is something to be said about the mets being a player when it comes to guys that are out there and spending the money and doing what it takes, and it's not always going out and getting other players I. Mean it's keeping your own. I WANNA be in a position where Pita Lonzo continues to have a fifty home run years in his face and his team, and then I gotTA. Worry about him leaving. Leaving in free agency because the dodgers, and the Yankees, or even some other team that spends a ton of money with the angels, a Rangers somehow come up with more cash to be able to pay him that stuff I. Don't WanNa worry about anymore. I would think that whoever the owner is. They would do a smart thing with Feta. Lonzo, and do what they did. With David Wright and Jose race when they were young superstars, and they were going to be the foundation of the mets moving forward now they want early. They went after him early. And they and they save money in the long run even. David ended up getting hurt and Jose ended up leaving. You. Know you realize that that was very smart and just like the signing of Jacob? degrom was very smart, and you know they have done some good things. In the past they've obviously missed and whiffed on a number of people, and they obviously also get blamed for Bobby Bony every July, so we we all. We all know that so. That's why I'm with you, I. You know I don't want I. Don't want group I won't one guy. When I say dictator, that's what I mean. I know that there are a lot of companies out there. I don't know. Let's just say there's there's a lot of different entities out there. That are run by committee and you know it's bureaucracy. One person sees one thing one way. Another person sees another thing another way some people over analyze things. Steve Cohen is a guy that has a bunch of guys at work underneath them that do all the analyzing, and then they come to him and he goes boom. Let's do it and that's the way and that's the way you want your team to be run things. That's the that's the way that you and you hire really good baseball people to build up your minor. Minor League system much like the dodgers have out there when you look at what the way they run their team and the amount of great young players that they have been able to bring up from the minors to the Major League ballclub. You realize that that's the way to do it and the same thing with the Yankees I mean. Take a look at the Yankee. Own Town when you take a look at their town, and make take a look at some of the shrewd moves. That Brian Cashman has made I with Didi Gregorius then with Gleyber Torres then bringing back Chapman bringing up judge bringing in Andrew Harr, going in getting DJ Lemay I mean Aaron Hicks bringing him in before he got hurt I mean you. You think about all those moves that are made. That's that's great. Baseball moves. The are moves that reflect. I would say ownerships. Support of the people that are making baseball decisions, and I would like to think that's exactly what you want and expect from a Guy Steve Cohen. Yeah I mean and also think about that quote again by that one executive about two teams operating like the Yankees, I mean there are checks and balances in baseball now. That weren't there. A number of years ago. The Yankees have made a concerted effort to stay under the luxury tax, and they have, and it's not something that they have gone over. There are big. Big penalties for that teams don't like doing that. I know that the red sox have had to pare back their payroll because they didn't want to get slapped again with another large luxury tax i. mean you look at the way that the draft is done in the the amount of money that you're allowed to spend so that big market teams aren't always finding the best players because they can pay them the most I mean. It's slotted money. It's money. There's a pool of money, so there's checks and balances. Biologists say how many teams have two players that are making three hundred million. Well right I mean there's there's there's not a lot. It's not a lot of that going. At the end of the day, those contracts are gonNA come back and bite the Yankees and yes, somewhere, because they they'll either have to lose one of their own young stars right? Were you know you're going to be talking about the insane number of where they go over the luxury tax so when they're looking at their numbers and they're looking at their players. You, you gotta believe that. There are at least three young players that they have on their roster that they're going to end up having to pay or lose at least three. Yeah I mean and that wouldn't have been the case. Prior to some of the changes that we have seen for competitive balance, it wouldn't have mattered. I mean they would just kept spending spending spending. They could have four three hundred million dollar players on their roster if they wanted to, but I mean it. It does matter especially to general. When you get the green light for whatever you want and remembered Brian Cashman doesn't go all in every off season I mean he. He did the last couple of offseason, but he sat one out with Manny Machado. And Bryce Harper, and they decided to go back in with Garrett Cole I mean you can choose right instead of Manny Machado, Bryce Harper. He decided to stand the year. He also brought Chapman back after he traded him to go get Kleber. Torres. So they're they're you know he's? He's done some shrewd moves, but he's also spent a lot of money. And there's no question about that. And and you know it's an arms. Race of Steve Cohen gets the mets. That would be a good problem for all of us met fans to have. It would be I mean it would be again. We have an owner by the way. In The New York Knicks and New York Rangers. James Dolan that would spend any amount of money that he could to get it right. and. The obviously both are in a cap system. And it's it's just. It's mind boggling that they can't get the basketball right. They got the hockey right and the Rangers have. Rebuilt their team and you know they. They've spent money on free agency. They've brought in some big time. Players like TRUEBA and Penan and they've done it I think in a very smart way. But nobody expected a pandemic. Nobody expected that the CAP was not going to go up over the next four years. Nobody expected that there wouldn't be amnesty buyouts being allowed for bigger teams or big money teams in the NHL to get themselves out from underneath some of the bad contracts that they have moving forward, but. There is an owner that those spend as much money as he possibly can to try to buy a winner. That doesn't mean it works well especially in that sport. I mean that's one that is. You got two things working against you. A one is a cap. To is the players decide where they're going to go and the way that the money works? Is You know it's not like you can? There's Max contracts you can only pay a guy x amount of money, so it's not like you can blow them out of the water, and you also have the bird rights situation where a guy can stay one place and end up getting more money, so he James Dolan. I believe he's in the worst sport to be that type of guy where you're willing to spend whatever it takes to get a winner because you're only allowed to do so much baseball, you can do more, but they're still restrictions on you, but I I am now. Now. I said before that you know anything other than the Wilpon I'll be happy with and I still hold that to a certain degree, but it's a rod and J. Lo that'll be. It'll be fun for us to like talk about it, and and those things that'll be different as celebrity angle, and it's just GonNa be it'll be juicy for short could be a disaster, but it also could be very fun, but when I'm comparing the the A rod group and Steve Cohen. It's not even close. It's not even close. I don't want any part of and they were one point seven billion I. Guess Steve Came in a to. You know I'm just. GonNa Call Him Steve Now. Or plus four for S and white. Yes, so he is, he is just our savior, and you know you meant use the word before. That made me really really believe that Steve Cohen is. Is The guy and you know we've talked about? Two things that would define success for him having a urinal in his house and driving a Red Porsche for me, thing would to be have having underlings. If you have underlings, you know you've made it because that means, there's people underneath you that are doing stuff that you don't even necessarily know what they're doing, but you've got boomers is. Do you? Do you feel like you've got underlings now? I don't feel like I have underlings, yeah. He has a company I. Don't Know How many how many people work for that company who underlings? He's got under links. That's success right there. And underling, not even a single underlying Steve Cohen's got multiple underlings, in which is Steve? Cohen the Bobby axelrod of MLB owners. That's well apparently that was the show was based on him. Right lion he's wants to just chew up and spit out everything off path and just want to win I love it, and it has a sports fan, and if that's your owner, then you gotta be happy with that. That's right and I'm now getting excited again. About it, and if it gets ripped away because he's owners, don't want someone who can push them around in their sandbox. Well, then that's really gonNa make me angry. Each morning show with boomer. ESIASON and Greg, Saudi boomer and Geo, we are on the fan. We will be back on CBS sports network, and just a couple of minutes once these Europeans are done taking pieces of paper out of Easter eggs, and showing it to each other. Whatever this is while this is the new. Thing that the CBS sports has launched with European soccer man well, this is the dipping your tone of water. Boy They. I know the Games are one thing. Yeah, I guess you gotta carry this to basically what it is. You've got three guys at a table. There's three bowls in front of them and inside the bowls are eggs. That are filled with pieces of paper, and then one guy, a whisks around these eggs, and then pulls one out opens it up pulls out a piece of paper that I have no idea what any of it means and holds it up to the camera so. I'm sure there are people all over the country. Though that are just riveted by this it just we are not. This just we're not soccer fans. We're not soccer fans, but says he just holds held up a winner of quarter final four, and then he stuck it in a garbage pail so i. don't know what the always now he's onto the final. He's onto the final now. This is these people holding their breath all over the country all over Europe right now. Let's see he's. He's opening this up. Somebody. Tell me what this means. When he when he holds it up this. This is the moment we've been waiting for. Winner off semi-final to. Congratulations. Here's what this is all about okay. I don't really care. So, tell you CBS reached. multi-platform agreement would see all and CBS sports to serve as the exclusive English language home in the US of the U. E.. Fa Champions League the FA Europe League and the. Europa Conference League. It's there's a six in beginning of this August. There's a sixteen team knockout tournament the official release. You know went out yesterday. And CBS sports is very excited about what they're what they're giving you. There is the the matchups. That's how they do the matchups for ECKSTEEN team the draw. The draw all right great. No I mean I get it again. People are gonNA. Be Watching these games in their into it I. Just I couldn't figure out you know the whole Easter egg thing right I guess it's a big deal. People are people are into these eggs, and what's inside of these X.. Yes they then. We'll be back on CBS sports minute. Network what probably in about two minutes three minutes. Yeah, and maybe even sooner than that. Who knows do? They have the eggs you're done? There's just some stand next to cop now. Who Smiling, so we've got? Yeah, so it seems like you say he's wrapping up. Whoever this guy is with the with two microphones on each lapel, so let's say you know. It's a very serious operation that they have going on. There all right. We also have a serious issue going on from a multimillion dollar draw on CBS sports at to crystal prestige a living room. We go so CEELO. What do you got for us? Good morning fellas brought to you by flag anthem performance gear, visit, flag, anthem DOT COM. Always boomer! Why does it seem like your whole head is like right in the screen because I am not privileged to have a separate camera. Away You, gentlemen are so. I have one functioning device. Which is my laptop? Privilege Iron, this iron this camera. What's up? That's right. I earned the cameras for shut it so I mean. I haven't earned my camera, so you're stuck with my head up in your grill. You Know I. Don't know what else there man. Yeah I mean. I can push my laptop a little further away, but I have to be able to reach the You know you touch pad the keyboard the mouse, so that I can follow along with what I'm doing here. I'll turn on the sound like a jackass. Would you CEELO is not great with the AD living. We cannot get into far away from his scripts or disasters happen. We have heard this many times before. And then he's got his little. Binding th raises where he goes from one to the other moving right along. Long or Let's see here is another one. You'll like. Oh. All right those script from five to six and Alan. I had a blast this morning. I thought this morning's warm-up. Show is much more enjoyable than yesterday's was. Oh. Terrific yeah. Very. CEELO even came with a strong topic. That's right TIKI and snooky. Boy. Oh Yeah. Did you catch this yesterday that the Tiki Barber snooky to finish TIKI and Tierney? He was solo. Tyranny was off, and he had some sort of technical problem at his house he had a knock on his neighbor, snooky door down the street there in north, Jersey and finish up their house. Afterwards when I, when I first started talking about I, thought you said tyranny had gone over there and I was like that is just the perfect I mean that is. That is serendipity in motion. But then I found out. It was TIKI and it wasn't as funny to me. Because I can just picture brandon dressing up like one of the Jersey Shore. T shirts. Right like pumping his face than going in. Can I put this thing in Oh. Taking over the whole situation Oh baby, but no it does is pretty cool to have TIKI and snooky being neighbors to successful people in the same neighborhood. As! He calls her by her real name. Not only neighbors go to the botchy grill. Together Wow. That's how close they are. TIKI and Tierney account thanked her as well, and they sent out a picture of Tiki, and his wife and Snooky I don't know if it's her husband or boyfriend. Out at the Hibachi restaurant yet you see. In the bachelor. Entertaining the people so that gets tight. You know what I was thinking. When we rejoin CBS sports network, we should pretend that boomer announced something really like crazy, but not say what it is so like. Just when people joined their like freaking out, you know, and the caller should call it in wish, boomer good luck in his new endeavors. Jim like wow. I didn't expect that. Come to to happen today. That's what we're going to do so whenever they join and I start doing at just just play on. Just TV. We'll have info sheet up just to say yes. Yes, all right very good. Go ahead, seal all right. You guys covered a lot of the details of the mets bidding from yesterday so steep, calling to bill additional two billion for S, and why that was according to the Fox business report, a his previous bid, pre corona virus, two point six billion. You get the Girard Group, they do have the necessary funding with their group of investors, checking in somewhere around one point, seven billion and apparel. That's the same range for a devils and Sixers, co owners. Josh Harris and David Blitzer I. Did read in The New York Post story that was expected Cohen. We need to pay about two hundred. Hundred and fifty million more than his nearest rival go touch on that a little bit in the open, just in terms of maybe the past relationship with the Wilpon of the fact that it might be a little tougher to get him approved by the other MLB owners, so whatever that top bit is, it is understood I. Guess He's going to have to go a little bit beyond that in order for him to to come away with the franchise on the field. Yesterday you had another Sim game for the mets at Citi field you on assessment as homer to left Offset Lugo. And he turned around and just casually walked back to the DUGOUT. He couldn't be bothered to to run the basis so. It's not interested, told not to run the basis now. Why would that be well? He's coming off of double heel surgery. Probably the first thing okay I'm sorry guys I'm I'm sorry, but just like talking about this baseball stuff I just my mind's in a different place after what boomer said at the top of the show I just don't know I. Don't know if I can continue talking about. And this stuff? So like? What does it because? I don't know how you guys are feeling about it, but I'm just thinking. What does it mean for us? You know. What does it mean for the radio station? You know. What does it mean for CBS sports network and all these scenarios are are playing in my head, so they'll figure it out. What will guys will figure it out and CBS will figure it out, and you know just be able to do what I need to do and to get to get done something that I've always wanted to do in my life to me, it's like can twenty twenty get weirder. Right on top of corona virus, I arrest. May you took the words right out of my my mouth, and you know I know and I'm happy for you. boomer I am because I don't WanNa make it seem like I'm being selfish because I know. This is something that you've you've talked about with us off the air for a while and just. Odd Timing on top of everything else, but you know we're always going to support you no matter what I mean as long as you. Guys from time to time and I think you'll enjoy. It I, think you'll be treated like I know that. You WanNa be treated because when I do take you guys out to dinner always paying for it so. Used to I'm used to that and you guys are GonNa get taken care of so don't worry. So, Friday news dump. Yeah, I know Jeez Iowa. Wouldn't you wait until like like Monday? And then we could really dissect it. We can have a nice weekend going to be thinking about this the entire weekend. I got a tropical storm on top of it. Like Andrew Marsh or Neil best or somebody would have. We would all this whole thing down and got into some sort of you know story line to it I just wanted to let guys know before anybody else did yeah, well. I appreciate you open in the show with that today and totally totally Paul Yeah, and you should be and you and you should be, and it's and it's great, and I think you know it's going to be a good thing. It just it. Just you know there's as you say. Collateral damage that happens with with decisions like this, so I mean, but here's here's what we'll do all right, so let's just not talk about it the rest of the show. And we'll just we'll just forget about. It will move on as if nothing happened, and let's just not because I I I know that personally I'm going to be distracted if I think about it so. I and I didn't mean to do that because I know I know you know we, we have so much to talk about in terms of baseball, the big ten and right, and what's going on with all these professional sports and the NFL so I I didn't mean to, but I felt like I had to all right all right see low take it away and then maybe booming can go back to schooling. Schooling me I'll why it's OK that cesspits is being excused from running to bases after a homeroom well, he ran the other day. Okay, wow, look at guy, old load management. You guys hang out on the golf course one time and all of a sudden you've got. CESSPIT is back on this I. Mean normally you'd be crushing the guy for something like this I. Don't think it's a big deal either obviously because. What point like I mean it's not like. Hey, it's February and there's a six or seven to season starts in a couple of weeks. I mean. Can we get these guys at least from running the? Hastert is just I understand just relaxed I. Know you're Yankee Fan and everybody's running in Yankee. Uniforms and the Yankees are also the mets have run. Yeah, well, just just relax. Just calm down. It's all about load management. How many times will have to tell you this The mets have guys that Sprinter I. after walks, you know. Get in the middle somewhere and jeopardy. Help Yourself, but taking shots assessment is. Shots you know it was a shot. You just created a shot, and now I'm just wondering. I'm wondering aloud. What the what the process is here as as people like to say, where's he at in the process? Jed Lowrie and his process had a leadoff double against Jacob degrom. Oh Ran. He ran. On second base he did he still he's still struggling. He hit transitions to this new leg. Brace that he's dealing with, but he did run to second, and he later scored from second, so he managed to stay upright for a full trip around the base, which is a big deal. And that was the only run that Jacob degrom allowed across his three innings of Work Delon Batanes. This also worked inning and manager Luiz row. Like what he saw, there said he feel more command. You know a visa repertoire so definitely. Good any for him I thought everyone through the ball wells well following that start of the game, so the velocity still coming back for Batanes. He's off the Kelly's injuries fastballs like ninety two to ninety three range, which for him is definitely lower than we're used to seeing, but he's still early on in the process here Jeff McNeil with the media as well after the SIM game, not ruling out a run it betting four hundred in the short and season. Six Games to go out there because many hits fossil. Know hopefully by the end of the four hundred, but You know we'll say you know my goal right now. Sister, don't get on basis much like camper. The guys behind me now Robinson Cano was not in mets camp again yesterday. No reason provided by the mets to this point. That's two days in a row. He was not at city field He was last involved in their Sim game on Mondays, so the mets have this organizational policy during summer camp where they're not commenting on players, absences, which kind of falls in line with what Major League baseball is as far corona virus. Test results go, so who knows what's going on with Keno? But he has been absent the last couple. Couple of days when other mets note ESPN did announced they're planning this multisport thirty for thirty on the eighty six mets, and you'll have Jimmy Kimmel and cousins. Saleh's two of the executive producers of that to look forward to hear. That's an interesting one That's of course any eighty six mets material. I am going to consume I know that that cousin sows big mets. Fan I know that Jimmy Kimmel. I didn't really know the history of his sports fandom. Yeah, but that's I'm sure that's going to be great. I mean it has to be. I don't think anybody can screw up telling the story about the eighty six minutes quite frankly because there's just so many great asides to the. Story. Story well. They I'm sure they will going to be like some highlight film. That book. The bad guys one was one that that told a lot of the story I. I thought that was a really good one. So if it's anything like that, then I'm sure it's GonNa. Be Great there. You can't do a highlight film when you're doing thirty for thirty on the eighty six you, there's no one's feelings you're going to hurt anymore. I mean so long ago at this point. Everybody knows a lot of stuff that was going on. I'm sure that it's going to tell everything. Yankees had another Sim game last night at the stadium. He had two young arms on display Jordan Montgomery Divvy Garcia. The latter only worked one inning venue made quick work. The top of the order here's Aaron Boone. Are you saw his fastball? Play up a little bit at the top Zona believe he got a strike out. I thought through through some good breaking pitches, so just a good step for him, he did strike out Gary. Sanchez, Tiro Strada homered. homered for the second time this week Zach Britton got some work in as well afterwards, he spoke on a number of topics including the idea of the Yankees. Piping in crowd noise for their home games. I think it's a good idea if if they're going to allow some steady crowd noise to be pumped in I think that would be good for the guys, certainly better than silence in the Ballpark by the way back to Boone for second and there was. Was a story making the rounds other yesterday or two days ago. Suggesting that the Yankees have told their players specifically Aaron Judge to keep quiet on racial and social issues, Boone says that's not the case as far as I know that that's absolutely false. In fact, if anything, we encourage our guys to if they want their voices to be heard on on whatever the subject may be, we're GONNA always encourage them to speak their mind and their heart to. To. My knowledge haven't heard much of anything from members of the Yankees. On the subjects to point we'll see how they handle that moving forward the NFL teams will now be forbidden from post-game interactions within six feet of each other jersey. Exchanges between players are apparently going to be prohibited. This season's. You had a lot of players speaking out on that. Yes, that was one of those things where I saw it just about Tom. Pella Zero tweet was the. NFL Network and I saw it. I just happened to be looking at twitter like twenty seconds after he posted it and I was about to write something, and then it was one of those things that I said you know. Everybody else in the world is going to say the same thing about this. Why am I going to be? The person says the same exact thing because you can't have any other opinion on it other than the fact that. That it seems ridiculous. Now I understand like limiting as much interaction as you can. Sounds fine in corona virus world, but you can't tell me that that the guys who were hitting each other in the spitting in the getting each other's face linemen, going note and nose to nose for three hours, and then all of a sudden you can stand six feet apart after the game makes any sense at all, but okay go have some fun. All right I guess boomer has no thoughts on that so I was Gio likes to hear me say moving right along. Julian Edelman who is Jewish reaching out to John Jackson yesterday the social media. He's trying to set up an educational trip for both of them about we go to DC. I take you the Holocaust Museum and then you take me to. Museum of African American history and culture. Afterwards we grab some burgers and we have those uncomfortable conversations. Swollen needs a little more love, compassion and empathy. Those are pretty good. Pretty good extension for him to throw that out there and who knows. How are you? Hope the Jackson? We'll take him up on it. Sounds like a good two way street for them to take a trip down there and kind of educate themselves a little bit. Sure I, mean I? I hope that that gets the Dijon Jackson and should, but it's just another one of those things where I. If you find his number, call him up. Set it up that way, too. Because I mean it's. It's you didn't like the public nature of it. No, it's fine I just hope that he also reached out to him privately right because it's like they're like sometimes when that. That I remember Joe Flacco in Ray Lewis got into this thing back and forth I guess like Ray Lewis had said something along the lines of Joe. FLACCO really isn't a leader or whatever, and then flacco said some in the media, and then Ray Lewis posted this video of him in a car, trying to explain what he meant and he goes. I'm talking to you man to man and I. Just posted a video. This is the direct opposite of man-to-man so I. Don't know it's fine to put it out there and it's a good. It's great message, and no one can argue it and I hope that he also you know. Hey picked up the phone. Let's do this I want you to know that I'm serious about actually going through with it for sure last thing before I go. The big ten becomes the first of the power five conferences to go to a conference only season for all fall sports amid the coronavirus pandemic. Here's a very concerned commissioner. Commissioner Kevin Warren. This is not a complete that we're GONNA have sports to fall away. Now Have Sports Wall may not have college football season a big ten, and so we just wanted to make sure that this a mets logical step has warren courtesy of bt and Ohio State Athletic, Director Gene Smith, echoing the same sentiment trying to get people's attention that they are far from a guarantee. Your damaged for school like Bowling Green because they have to big ten contests that they would have been paid two point two million to participate in. Now Bowling Green is out that money so. You know the collateral damage is big here and it. You know who knows if bowling green now has to cancel its season because they they don't get the two point two million from showing up to two games against. Roy Ohio State Illinois, Wisconsin but So this is what's going on now in college football, but. They also canceled I. Believe High School Football Down in the state of Texas really. Could actually make that decision, or they're just close to I think they're very close either. They made it last night or or or they're close to making it so. That happens man that is a huge. Again I go back to what we talked about yesterday about the mental health of the kids going to school. I think most schools should be able to handle like kindergarten through sixth grade I and those key those kids. Need Interaction. Those kids have got to go to school. They've got to go out and. Learn social skills I. either that or we're going to have a whole generation up playing video games I know. We have a lot of kids playing video games now, but if they can't play their sports and they can't go to school and they can't socially interact. The Mental Just the the intensity of the mental gymnastics that they're going to have to go through over the next couple of years a scary. Then you also have the Special Ed kids. You know the kids that need constant. Direction and they need constant interaction. You know that's a whole nother set of this and I understand that some teachers are worried because they may have issues that they're dealing with in their own life with their own. When we talk about the police we we tend to forget. The police have families. They live in our communities and their kids play in little league and their kids go to our schools, and you know they're just like we are. They wake up every morning and they wanted to do their job. They don't WanNa. Get embroiled in controversy, and we tend to forget that sometimes that they're human beings wearing a uniform. The same thing I would say about teachers. Teachers are human beings. They are parents themselves. They have kids that they have to take care of on a daily basis. And then they also have to take care of the kids that they teach in school, but to me man. You're talking about the mental wellbeing of all of our kids. They need to go to school they do. They really do need to go to school. And then that presents an enormous enormous problem all across the country, and every state is handling it differently and high school football not yet canceled in Texas, but it seems to be trending in that direction as a lot of high. Ranking people have said that there are major major doubts. Show with boomer, Esiason and Greg. boomer and Geo. boomer and Geo the fan CBS sports network in radio DOT COM so looks like the Washington. Warriors are the front runner for the new team name NFL team name Downing DC. We've heard warriors before of course with the Golden State Warriors, so it's not something that is completely different, I. It's not something that we've never encountered and it's GonNa. Everybody's GonNa Freak out so at least it's in our minds as a sports team name Washington. Warriors sounds good to me of course. Course, it's both WSB you could do something with the logo there, so if that ends up being the new team name I think that's a somewhat easy transition but of course it's not going to be something that is just right off the bat. We're going to be saying. Oh, yeah, the giants and the warriors this weekend it's GonNa be tough to get used to, but we know why the changes being made, and it seems like it's a long time coming, but. What I'm most curious about now that we finally gotten over the Hump of the team name changes as what the local looks like what the uniforms look, what the color scheme looks like I mean I think that most everything should remain our skin. They're going to write with that right so the everything in that regard should stay the same. Of course, the logo and the team name, but That's going to happen sooner than later. Apparently it's. It's going to be if there is a twenty twenty nfl season that's. Going to be the Washington redskins any longer it's going to be the Washington Warriors, or maybe maybe something else, but there's a lot of marketing that goes into this. There's a lot of. Apparel and they gotTA. They gotTA. Make sure that they get that part of it right as well because it's not, it's not normal. Course of business to be changing your entire team name. You know a couple of months before the season. Normally these things take. I remember when the jets went through this right. More working two three years just to change their uniforms I remember talking to. Neil glad about that about how we started this process three years ago and now you've got just a couple of months to do this massive undertaking with Washington. It'll be something interesting to them. Blaming kid done You know Nike's basically working on this right now as we speak I'm sure they all their designers and everybody trying to figure out you know the the. Worked if it is the warriors, it sounds like it's going to be but. I would have thought maybe something a little bit more unique, but I also understand why the use of warriors I mean it kind of. In some respects still pays homage to the old team you know. I don't know it's one of those things that they'll get done I told you that. I told you last week that they would get done, and this will be done before the season started. There's just too much. Momentum now and with the other owners within that ownership group trying to pressure Dan Snyder over the last three years. Finally because of Nike and Pepsico and other companies putting pressure on the Washington football franchise. He's he's going to do it. He's going to have to do it immediately which he is in the process of doing. Yeah another thing that the NFL NFL story from yesterday was Cam. Newton, still talking, and of course being fired up for the season, and you didn't like his post about him. Being a lion is about to roar. How do you feel about him and I'm surprised that you with this? Because this is a guy that normally you would get behind, but for whatever reason you're not get behind Cam Newton but he wants to. Quote stick it up. Everybody's you know what with the Patriots so I mean. Which I think is is great I mean I. I mean I know you're saying that it's about everything else with Cam Newton. That's how people felt in Carolina in the post game press conferences, and this and that, but it seems like this guy is really really committed to being great, and he's using that chip on his shoulder to motivate himself, and now he's with the New England patriots in. It just seems like this is the guy that you want to be your starting quarterback if he's healthy, he seems like he's. He's into it and that's the. The thing that was the knock against in the last couple of years was injuries, and it seemed like it was all about fashion and not about football. He seems like he's all about football right now i. mean he really does so i? Don't know why you can't come with me on the Cam Newton train well, I've kind of gone down that road myself, so I know exactly how motivated it is, and why he wants to play well, but I I didn't have a platform or social media platform to tell everybody how I felt I don't necessarily know that I would have done what the way they cams doing it but. He's also being sure. Poked and prodded on social media negatively. He's reacting to some of that stuff. I'm sure guarantee you he is. The proof is really in the performance and. As he is saying now. He's got gotta learn the Calculus of the Patriots playbook. And I'm just going through it myself. This is not easy. This is one of the reasons why Tom Brady is running all those practices down there when they're telling him not to. Because he wants to get really comfortable in the language of the Tampa Bay buccaneers and he wants to be able to. Also I'm sure put in some of the things into that playbook that he likes so. You Know Cam Newton hasn't been able to do that. He hasn't been on the field us on the field I guess throw into some people, but he's not actually running the Patriots offense, and that is not going to be easy. It's just going to. It's going to be hard. He's got to get to learn new people and people think he's going to be the player that he was in two thousand and fifteen You know that's great, and hopefully he will be hopefully he'll lead the patriots and I know there's a lot of motivation on both sides, both for him and bill bell check. If in fact he does overtake Jarrett's. Still in the equation, everybody seems to forget that, so you know I don't know I just I. I got to see the performance I. I got to see what he looks like. I got to see the accuracy I gotta see the athleticism all the things that he is when he's at the top of his game in the Patriots offense. To make sure that we have the proper context of this, you know it was a picture that Cam Newton posted on instagram of him, sitting at a desk with a bunch of papers in front of him, and he's writing something, and he's studying the playbook and what he did was he put a quote in his. You Know Insane Font that he uses on Instagram, which just is like hieroglyphics cannot figure this out. Why he continues to do this, but. He, said quote. This bleep calculus and quote, and then attributed the quote to Julian. Allman so he's not the one who said it. edleman said, and he's sitting there studying it because that'll told him as it's not going to be easy. That's another thing that you gotta be thrilled about. Come on. He In the playbook he's got. He's not trying on scarves and hats right now. He's not doing Nazi state. He's got his face right in the playbook. This man wants to succeed this man as a chip on his shoulder bigger than anybody in the NFL this year including Tom Brady and I. Am telling you right now that this is gonna out as long as his body holds up, it is going to work out. He's dedicated I'm telling you que and all right I'm I hope so I. Hope it works. It will be one of the interesting conversation pieces that will have throughout the NFL season if there is an NFL season. Yeah I, know I just. I'm not going to go down that road again. Because it's just the same conversations back and forth about what's going to happen, what will happen? Can you get through a season in their contact sport with this thing going on? Wherever were the cases? Be-, inches round, and around and around. We're never going to know, but we're starting to see you know bad signs with football. Already it's now. They've turned to deal with it right. It's you've got what's going on with the big ten. You've got the Ivy League canceling full sports. You've got this stuff about the escrow and the thirty five percent pay cuts that have been out there. It's now they're turn. It shown up on their door. It's like a it's like a soon. NAMI and they were way inland. The NFL and they were watching their neighbors. Get run over by this thing and going I. Don't think it's going to reach US probably, not going to reach us. It's got to be slowing down by the time it gets here now. It is now at your doorstep, and you're going to have to deal with it yourself. It's the morning show with boomer Esiason and Greg. boomer and Geo. Has Thickened maybe I just take my boat out and this tropical storm today I ever see that scene from forrest Gump Lieutenant Dan's on top of the boat, and they're in a storm and the shrimp boat and he's screaming like you know come after me and he's having that like he's angry at the world thing. Yes, thinking that's that's what I would do today like you know with all of this corona virus stall crazy social issues going on doing four hours of radio every day. It's been crazy. It's been pressing. It's been. Almost went to a headless funeral. All these things I just go out there and just scream at the storm in the boat and just. Come. It's not pitch and just be out there in the great South Bay with the winds. and. Waves and everything else. Why not right? Cutting into my golf plan man I'm GonNa be going to be locked up this weekend. Yeah, I guess as long as a life vest on I'll be fine. I swim. It'll be alright I. think that's what I'll do. Maybe I'll instagram. Live it, so it could be have could could be kind of fun. It'd be fun. You don't want to drop your phone. You don't WanNa. Drop your phone into the old into the Aramco. That'd be. That'd be a problem, but yeah. Give me something to do I. Mean I'm telling you. I'm having because I guess. We were stuck in our houses like in March and April in the ways that we were, but now we've sort of been out because the weather's been nice, you can still do stuff to a certain level me thinking about being in the House for like twenty four hours straight as down. Pouring is giving me like extreme anxiety, and I'm thinking about well. What can I do? There's nothing I can. Can Do. I can't take Sabrina anywhere. In a tropical storm I can't do anything. It's only twenty four hours, but I'm just like looking at the hourly forecasts I'm like Oh my God. I gotta get the dogs out by nine o'clock somehow and because they're not going to be stuck in here and then I. Don't know maybe I'll just let them in the house. Because I'm thinking of all these things while because you because of you in between the breaks I'm I'm bringing in all the cushions from the outside. Right. I don't want what cushions. There's nothing worse than wet grass. Yeah, mine have been inside now for Days I looked at the forecast I. Did it even yesterday was a nice day brought the cushions. In any way. It doesn't matter. They're staying inside now and I'm thinking. Do I take the umbrella down? What do I do it all? You know it is a pain in the ass when you have cushions, though it is, it really is because you got to move the cushions in and out, and you know what I've been doing and leave them out, and you forget to bring them in then they're soaked. And then you gotta take them off, and you gotta sit them up and you've got a high had drives him out. I had this exact situation. It's almost like you're You were over here watching this, so we had just gotten the patio furniture, and I was bringing in as soon as of course, it was like ten straight days. Days of no rain, maybe even more than maybe two weeks straight of no rain the second we get the cushions. It's like every other day. There's a thunderstorm, so I'm bringing them in a hole and a main every day I'm like boy. This is a pain in the ASS. I don't want to do this every day so I. I asked other people with cushions I. Say well. What do you do with your I just leave him out. They dry doesn't matter. We had him for years now. Sorry, go to say. What should I leave these cushions out? It's GonNa rain. Let me just leave him out. Those cushions to be out there, but she goes, she says give it a shot because it seems like it's a pain in the ass. These things are made for outside. Let's let's just give it a shot. Oh my God! That's right. We're going to give this a shot. We're GONNA. Leave the cushions out. There is a downpour. These things still haven't dried from a week and a half ago. I say them out in the driveway in direct sun the other day, ninety degrees, and then with them over like cheeseburger. Day to be able to get the other side. And they totally different now it's horrible because there's not enough sun back there. The move the cushions area. Realize the cushion problem that is out there and a lot of us are feeling the pain of the cushion problem. It is a real problem I. Just ended up bringing. You know because you know God forbid or actually brings a cushion. I sat down on one of the questions the other day and it was still wet. You know like three days ago when it rained and I was like come on. Cushion problem. No one else is talking about this. But we all know those of us. who have cushions know exactly what we're dealing with. Everybody's scared to touch the cushion issue. I mean that's really what it comes down to. EVERYBODY'S A for. No one wants to talk about it. You don't know if there's like a spider underneath the cushion. Is there another bug under there? It gets into etiquette. Get Mold. Old Algae. Marley. Yeah, it's just it's a cushion problem and now I'm just glad. I finally shined a light on it. You hire. Do you tire cushions down? Yes, on the Chase Lounge. I do tie the cushions now but I. Don't do it in a not I just do it once. That's it okay all right so now. That means it's easier to take. Take them off. I just took off so. And carried them in so I feel I actually do feel better now that I don't have to worry about what cushions for the next week, but yeah, you could get a big outdoor cushion being yeah, no I see. No See. Genus suggested this, but I was like that thing looks like a monstrosity now, not putting a plastic bin in my backyard. Pushes. Back Yeah some Rice Cedar. And the whole thing. Line sealed. We'd Cedar Yeah with with the seat cushion on it and in cupholder now personalized engraved your initial. Just bring the cushions, and that's all there is to it. I mean we had that discussion about the I said this thing is just gross I mean, and then it's going to be on the side of the house forever and in the winter. It's just to be sitting there doing nothing right I? Don't need this this pin Seoul. What about a situation like I have a very tiny condo, but I do have cushions I bring them in and put them wear in my living like. You'll have like a jain normal deck out back. To Chase cushioned by. To, small cushion, and it's a whimsey dog beds when not outside stored on the floor, bringing in and put it behind the couch or under the couch. Closet space in that Condo L.. Kind of taken. Moving cushions in and out of a clause. You don't strike me as he got. It's got a lot of stuff. Quarter. Also. You, have cushions. Tri, state area where big cushion people. Logo, we're all about the backyard and the cushions I'm just need them and you gotTa and you've got to bring that. You gotTA bring the umbrellas down to. That's Yeah I. Know Well. Bro Open no not open I have that open and tied up I was thinking today could get so bad. I got actually take the umbrella out and bring the whole umbrella in. Umbrella now. Closed yeah I thought I. It's a very heavy bass. Thirty five mile an hour winds maybe gusts of fifty. You'RE NOT GONNA. Take that umbrella so I. Don't think so I think it'd be right, but just make sure that you have the umbrella closed. It's been close. Things been closed since since Sunday I think once? I saw the tropical storm. What's the name this? Stay right so how was on her way phase on her way? and. Very nice. So. How many people do you think? We just reminded that they have to take the cushions in. A lot I mean. That's the the beacon of light. Did we can be you know really we've. We've changed lives this morning by telling them to go. Get the cushions and some. There's someone at work now. It's like dammit. I totally forgot to bring the. It's Texan. Hey Derek. You've grown over real quick. I know you don't go to work until later and grab my cushions. He just texted snooky added. That's Great, okay? CEELO got a little time for your update here. Don't take it to eight o'clock. Today you guys are GonNa. Make it today with the cushion situation. You'll be okay. I'm very concerned for your well being I'm not sure, but I appreciate your concern. You just remind me I need to secure my hammock in the back. I don't have any cushions, but I gotTa make sure that the Hammock. That's right I. Don't want that thing flying around back. There were brought to you by wall. Our paint and design and ace hardware stores visit shop dot. Wall our DOT COM? com for online, ordering the first round of bids by the mets. They are now in Steve Cohen St very much in the mix again to the tune of four billion dollars to bill for the team and other two billion offer for us and Y. You get the a rod at J. Lo, group along with their other big time. Investors reportedly making a bit around one point seven bill, which is the same range for devils in sixers calendars, Josh Harris and David Blitzer the. The new. York Post Reporting Jeff Wilpon prefers to sell the team to j Rod Group. If they're offer is close to the best bid at the end of the auction, and they'll now decide how many of these suitors to invite to round two of set auction, not sure how many rounds they're going to be, but when you have multiple billion dollar bids can eliminate some of those lesser offers that may have come in that. We don't even know about now at city field. Field Thursday you want to assess impede Alonzo's smacking around Seth Lugo a little bit a home run for cesspits, and then he went Sunday Beer League softball style just passed on the home run trot turned around one right back to the dugout. Jed Lowrie leadoff double against Jacob degrom, and he later score. That was the only run allowed by degrom across his three innings meantime. Louise Ross, placing an emphasis on defense. He says the mets sucked in that department under Mickey, callaway. Defensive starting the season last year, and that's something that we definitely address of the is address to individuals in the areas that they need to get better instead of loving each other more than anybody's. That's a real manager. That's actually telling you the way it is i. I like that too now. We just get an. Is for on the basis and they'll be, they'll be. Why is? That noise, you. Why is this the same reason that the cushioned the taking the cushions is a big deal for you guys. Because we're. Involved with that I. Think about all the I mean it's treacherous man, you try to stack a bunch of cushions often and carry them all in up the steps, and then through the glass door. All things in the pitfalls that you can have you don't even see what's underneath you. A tiny Yorkshire terrier I could step on while I'm looking at all those cushions in my face. especially when you have chase lounge cushions. They're bulky in their opinion. Ask the carry I. Got Those X. Chair cushions. I mean those things. They have their own zip code those things they're humongous and I gotta worry about that this this stuff directly affects us. The UN assessments. Walking back to the dugout doesn't directly affect us. Payer to it will affect you when he's you know. Jogging I on a ground ball or pulls his hamstring, trying to sprint the second on a double in. August I, then you're just a little bit worried because he's going to affect you and Garrett Cole, when he bombs over left field fence night, and he will be running around the basis for that one, so don't Laura Trott. Maybe he can take the reese hoskins around remember that from last year with the. Hoskins took him like four minutes to get around the Basil. Running Yeah Michael Walker one of the newcomers for the mets this year. He says they have quickly fallen into a nicer team though the health and safety protocols. It has almost become second nature to me. Just waking up and filling out the questionnaire during the temperature checks. or Walk out. Walk the new normal. Jeff McNeil! That a lot this year. Oh, boy, I Jeff McNeil, also trying to keep things somewhat normal in the clubhouse Oliver Loggers, six feet apart but you know he's still still jd across from me, so you know we're always always joking close and those guys Jd Davis Dom, Smith, and part of the cookie club which McNeill plans to continue this season with some limitations where they gather around post game, and usually stuff their faces with cookie and milk, so they're gonNa have to kind of rework their approach that make sure social distancing guidelines are in place, or maybe they'll do it via zoom, but he was talking about that quite a bit. Better when it championship, you're thinking about like the difference between like the eighty-sixth mets. These mets like these met stuffing their face with cookies and milk, and the eighty six mets coke in Bourbon. Between Innings sexier. We wanted to crowds and taking a bit to the bullpen. Doing lines of coke of their. Little now these guys are ever cookies. McNeil's talking about ordering snickerdoodles and chocolate chip cookies couple of milk, so all right not good misses the parade because he's on a bender. Most having mass right? Yeah, yeah! Little. Likeable team, though yeah sure. This is also beneficially confirmed. Now Yankees and mets. We'll meet at city field next September to commemorate the twentieth anniversary of the nine eleven attacks less than a week and a full squad workouts, and because of some of the young pitchers, the Yankees had on display, including Jordan, Montgomery and Dave. See a yesterday Aaron Boone. Already getting asked how many pitchers they plan to carry on their initial roster. I would say over the next several days. We'll we'll. Those conversations will gradually start to pick up. They've still got to see Romana Hero. Tanaka is and will be as opening day approaches as far as his. His health goes back to Garcia. He was sharp in one inning of work. Last night struck out Gary Sanchez Kyle Higashio caught him in this Sim game. And here's your modern day analysis from a big league catcher guy, goodfellow, high spin rate, and he knows how to pitch, so you know I think he's got a good chance to be pretty successful. The spin rate is key in this. This error minor league numbers have been outstanding for Garcia. We'll see if it eventually translates to some big league success couple interesting quotes from around the League cody, bellinger of the dodgers on the new health and safety protocols quote I. Don't think it's a hassle to wear a mask. If your breath stinks, it sucks, but it just means you brush your teeth a little bit more, so there's a practical solution and Rangers left. He Mike Minor on the pitchers allowed to carry a wet rag in their back pocket, the season to moisten their fingers. I can't really see myself with a wet rag back. They're walking around with swamp, but so. Things. Some of these guys are facing. Yesterday, but stuff yeah, Imagine Mike Pelfrey in this environment. He I don't know what he would do. It'd be difficult can't be licking the hands, and the palms and fingers, and all that good stuff, a little bit more from Jillian Donna. Hope that Joe West is the empire. Because he doesn't own a virus so. Joe West crew chiefs game. You can do it. You can sneeze on each other. You could lick each other's faces if you WANNA Joe West Game. Is there anyone that guy has an alienated at this point? He's got his own Umpire's union distancing themselves from him. At this point, we know the players don't like Kinda reminds me. The mindset of like Bob Wiley. Yeah, I mean he's like come on man just like Bruce Arians the other day like the all these like. We come on man. Let's go as opposed to a death conspiracy. That's. Your West is. He's really gone off the deep end old school, but you what I'm saying. Is what I mean. It's like what Bruce Arians said. Look, they're all GONNA get sick. It's just a matter of how sick they get. Bob Why is Bob Wiley using hand sanitizer away? He's probably Washington saints in the toilet. We should get him on and get his corona virus takes. You know he probably he's. He probably hates all of this. He'd probably thinks that there's there's this is the entire thing has been made. He's probably got strong. China takes on this. Thank. You think so I think Bob while he's got strong Chinese Corona. Virus takes I do. Think your your assessment. Yeah, it was yesterday we were talking about. You love the old school. Corona virus takes. Football coaches yeah for the from football coaches because they apply their mentality with everything else to a pandemic, and it's Hilarious to me and I and I keep like I honestly think that this was going on. When I was playing high school football, they probably tell us to drink the GATORADE and to go out there and breathe in the dust of the practice field, and if you can live through that, you'll be fine like the. Say Yes. Couple of quick ones sorry. I didn't mean to step on there and I was just GonNa. Say we could text Bob, Wiley and and get these takes, but then I don't want him to get crushed because I feel like he wouldn't hold back and say something. That'd be offensive to some. Maybe maybe you're the one thing I will say that. Practicing in Cincinnati back in the day, we practices a place called Spinney field and spinning feel was on the lower west side of Cincinnati in the industrial area, and we had the water treatment plant or the sewage treatment plant just to the north of our practice facility. We had a creek that came behind us. They came down from Mike. All the there was a company called bracket, and they made all these different cleaning solutions, so there was some stuff in that that was empty out into the Ohio River was just to the south of our deal, and then we had a galvanizing plant right across the street. These the galvanize those those big. I guess. What they would use for construction in the street barrels. Galvanized the barrels, and then there was a mattress manufacturing plant I believe right next to that and they would all have smokestacks. Practicing you know on on this, feel them we use the. It's I. Guess We used to joke. We just to say like if Kenny Anderson can last, we're GONNA. Use Him as our barometer because you know he'd been there the longest. So, we were obviously exposed to things that most football team's probably aren't exposed to and We've often looked at Kenny Anderson to make sure that he's still upright and living in walking. Yeah, and which is is I'm glad to report YEP right right? Now it does little different now in the NFL the practice facility Oh. You're not kidding. Jets my God. It's like a SPA palace. All right, see anything important air. We're going to get some more boring baseball sound, or what are we got? A. Second interview with Tom. Tinto, he's apparently got the inside. Track there all right all right very good Ceelo we will. Talk to you next hour. Maybe we'll get some more Gary Sanchez exit video cuts each the morning. Show with boomer, Esiason and Greg. boomer and Geo, former and Geo on the fan CBS sports now our radio DOT COM. I wonder if Matt Hammer is freaking out right now. He is his hammer time. Is this like? I hear I'm hearing. Echo in somebody's headset. I duNNo, if CEELO was up and I, don't know what's going on, but all I'm doing. This guy's on his echo, and can we get? This figured out he is. All right well, it's better now. I think it is better okay good. We got that figured out Monz but Matt Hammer has to be like this is his time right when it's a big snowstorm. Big Tropical storm like today would be the guy to talk to hammer time to figure out exactly what's What's going on with tropical storm face? So so give him a call. I'm sure he's available. He's probably the easiest guest book in the. The history of the world has probably been staring at his phone ever since the last time we had him on well the last time we tried to reach him, he didn't respond back in about ten thirty. He responded back in a panic that he had missed his opportunity. All he better be paying attention. You know I'm sure he's delivering the weather somewhere right now. Of course, he is a little bit for these guys. They get the really start talking about surf and Wind Damage Storm Surge Sergio. That kind of stuff. Yeah, currents, Bombo Genesis. So much on their plate right now. This is like this. They are the go-to people and their bosses know that news twelve. New Jersey's just down the boardwalk in the next town over just all worried about what's going to happen. with the Lord Walks and the storm surge, and all adds new. Yeah, be careful and for those of you who have boats in addition to cushions, bringing your cushions and check the lines on your boats man. You don't want those things floating away and tropical storm Fay. That's the last thing you want. MATT HAMMER IS A. Guy Who also plays guitar and sings country songs on his instagram. Did you see that out? I did see it after you sent it to me? Yeah, I thought it was GONNA be like a humorous song, but he was, he was dead. Serious serious artists yeah. I thought he was going to say some. There's a cold front come through. Don't know what to do, but no, he he goes. You don't have getting a lot of requests from people wanting to hear a Sam Hunt Song so here you go. A little bit of combat ship Ya. I mean he's he's dead. Serious with this and I'm like who is requesting the news. Twelve weather guide do Sam Hunt covers. Gotten, he's got that deep voice, so it sort of works you know yeah, a pick up truck and dog in an ex wive, but soon not so he sounds sounds pretty good when he's doing it just shocking to see where he's got the deep voice, but the baby face. Weird combination. he's a weatherman. Weatherman? Yes, there's gotta be a market for something like that. You know baby-faced deep voice, weatherman country singer I? Mean somebody's got a scoop him up and and make star. Do you think if he got on Cameo? He'd get some. You know. People would be interested. Well, clearly, getting requests already people of want him to do. Sam Hunt so I would think about lutely he should you thing? Do you think that guys like him? Like the weather channel is the place to go. I. Promise piano of weather I could see the weather. People going you know years ago, the weather channel was the place to go, but you know. Then they got bought by this company and things changed, and then all of a sudden. You know when same champion left. It's never been the same you know like. I'm sure that they have those types of ideas about. If you really WanNa, go, you gotta go. Go to the NAO a site. You know they've got great stuff over there. I'm sure there's stuff that we have no idea in the weather community about whether they like Oh. Would you look at the Weather Channel? What are you looking at apple? Weather on your iphone yet? no good. This is where you gotta go. If you want the real weapon, real radar, and then like if he gets A. Job Opening in like Oklahoma and he wants he's like I've got to start. Studying tornadoes did not deal with them in Long Island. So I'M GONNA have to before the interview. Let me figure out. They asked me questions about tornadoes. I've got to be on top of my aim. Being a tornado chaser, though, couldn't you? Oh, sure without a doubt I could see him chasing down that Tornado, and then getting really close to it, then getting his guitar sing a Ham Sam. Hunt Song I. F Five F five coming my way like the he needs to combine those two things. That's what he needs to do. He needs to be doing like country weather singing. And that's how he's going to get out of news. Twelve because I know, he claims he wants to be with news twelve forever, but he really he really does not want to be. He wants to go to some sort of affiliate somewhere, so he can get sentenced somewhere in middle America the loves country music, and he could be the hammer man who sings you the weather. Then that's what's going to separate him from all these other goofy looking weather. Guys out there it all this. We need to get him big job I. Mean I know he's always talking about sending tapes out and stuff and he never gets any bites. This is the thing this is this is. The next few people big jobs, haven't we? Al Count Kevin Burkhardt Yep. We got him that job at Maastricht job at Fox. We got them that Kim Jones we got her that job. NFL definitely got her that job to sure yeah. Absolutely that's about it I think. We're! Big Job. We can we can. We can get people to places. They've never been before and I think Matt Hammer should be our. That should be our project. Yes, Right Hammers! Harder that Kevin Burkhardt and Kim Jones the Matt Hammer I mean this is a lot more difficult I think. We're working with a lot less. Per country in Weatherman well. How how much difficult I mean that should be like the easiest thing to sell. Yeah, I guess, but never been done before. It's tough. Room this is it you can get a breakthrough a chance to do that. G Yeah I. Mean You have to weaken? There has to be like a CBS affiliates somewhere in like Oklahoma and Texas anywhere. Kansas there has to be one of those with a weatherman opening where he could just slide right in there, with his cowboy boots, his guitar and Doppler so he's the. Jersey shore and he's going to Manhattan Kansas well. How committed are you? If you WANNA do this? Hey, I left the. Beautiful beaches of Long Island and went to the three rivers. From the Atlantic Ocean to the Muhanga Halo Mananga Halo there you go and I did it, so he's got to do it, so how about this hammer time must be knee-deep in the weather. He got back to me and said I call you after nine. So he's got a full hour like getting in deep on on tropical storm Fay radar and everything. Just how does he draw on these screen? Does he's telestrator? He would totally be a candidate for an accidental penis on the. Like. Coming in here and then down ear. It's GonNa Committee but works like I. Definitely see him, and then the cold front extends out over here. He would totally be that guy who wouldn't even realize it. But Tell Matt Hammerton our never where his priorities. I mean seriously does he want us to help him with his career? Not Actually don't tell on that, but that don't don't techs. told him that he just heard now now that I decided halfway through I decided. It's probably not a good idea. It's probably on the air on the air right now I think so. Okay if he's on the air, I don't want to take, but after nine o'clock, that would be fine you. To at Dark Sky Dark Sky will tell me what's going on. Right yeah. Exactly tell him that. Like all right fine, we'll just have to rely on the APPS as opposed to the weather. Man Who is being phased out everywhere, so if that's what you'd like I mean, we went to the Weatherman I you denied us, but now we're just going to go straight to our APPS. So that's the way you want to weigh this weather. APP isn't working the dark sky ever since Google took it over. Yeah, I agree it's not reliable now. All of a sudden sucks. Outside and they basically. When? Is that going around there with a weed whacker. Put them to work now the. showed up to get in here before the rain. Of course, but it's random. Make sure I get boomers house. Yeah, get. That shouldn't crew. You know. On the on the job on the cushion crew. That's that's that's exactly what I've been doing in between the breaks. I'm getting pictures on twitter from people after they are putting their cushions away their photographing sending yeah. Yeah! That's great now. Matt! Hammer he He did post something a couple of minutes ago. So loud I know he's. He's right outside my door right now. No clue. What I'm doing I'm on the air you know. Why my buddies are trying to create a silent leaf blower. That's genius yeah. That's genius. You got to come up with that a silent weed whacker in a silent lawnmower, and all all sorts of stuff. Yeah, so China in Matt Hammer says he is rising to the occasion. Here's this chime in with any tropical storm Fay questions here and check the forecast on the news twelve APP. Let's see what he has to say. Here. Hammers, you put the volume I got to believe. His boss is probably pretty good, right? Pretty happy with them. How could you not be right? Guys working his ass off? He gets all the promotion here they they know they're going to lose them. At some point, you know because it's not a real job that he's got now so. Come on man. tastic arrest of your Friday be safe later on. Very. Tristate, but I'll do my best answer. Any of your questions as we go throughout the day, so leave them here. Leave them here. Leave the storm questions air. People who have storm questions that they send in. I mean like what what could I just WanNa mess with Matt Hammer I. Don't really have any storm questions you know like. What are the storm questions? How much is it going to rain? The question's GonNa be. What's his name? Matt Matt what's The difference between a hurricane and tropical storm? That'd be nice. I can answer any question. Keep keeping coming I. Bet you I can answer any question. What's a tropical depression? Tropical depression is actually lower than the tropical storm. which is you know it was? A hurricane was a tropical storm than the wind speed drops even less than that so basically what you're going to get heavy rain during a tropical depression and low wins. What is barometric pressure? Tell you good one. The which is the barometer? Right in that pressure is with the fronts that are that are coming through. You get high. If you get a high yeah barometer for I, Ain't you getting the front coming through which could produce a storm so I had a barometer right now it'd be high. It would be I. Actually had one of those growing up my parents house. It was like a water was bluewater in you know funky looking thing, and if the water like went all the way up to the top, it was high Barometer, and you knew that there was something coming through like a front of some sort, yes, fluent to the cop at the lower pressures, the worst the storm. Okay. So. This is the higher the pressure of the low the pressure when it remember when that whole when it when it drops it and you get that it goes down quickly. That's problem. Oh. That's the Bombo Genesis thing that's the that whole that whole deal that big. Yeah, okay, we're GONNA drops quickly from the hyper and high pressure is actually a nice weather usually. Okay so you're wrong, G well. That's why Sword Hammer. That's why you need to have. All Right? Maybe I was wrong, but I. Maybe it was that when the liquid went up, it was low pressure when it was down, it was high pressure. I just thought that meant high pressure, but one of the two is not good. They turned upside down. Maybe, maybe that's the answer I will try to get mad. Hammer a little bit later, and you know here's the first question is some. Is it a bring your cushions in day? One hundred percent. Bring your cushions and. All right it is boomer and Geo. Gabri show up early day. Seriously it's the morning show with boomer, Esiason and Greg. boomer and Geo Precise Incorrect Jian audience, boomer, and Geo on fan CBS, sports network and radio DOT COM. Remember that new web. Guy That you'd never heard of before boomer and you were saying. Who is this guy's writing articles? And then he looked at him, and he said he was a big chicken, parm guy and the Elliott Chicken parm enthusiasts. Well. It's guy. He was I, saw Mike. Committing A in my opinion is like the one of the twitter cardinal. Since you know when you've got access to other accounts, and I wanted to see how you guys felt about this, because maybe I'm wrong. I don't know I. Leave Room for me to be wrong. unlike other talk. Show host I could be wrong about this, but I saw him. Re tweet and it has been undone now. which makes me think that someone got to him or maybe he self corrected. But. He he tweeted out the nets. Just officially announce. They've signed Michael Beasley, and then he went in to the wfan account that he has access to, and then he re tweeted that to get his personal account out there. and. I saw that I said I don't like that. That to me is an abuse of power. That's not something that you do on twitter when you have access to the two accounts. If you've got access to count, you tweet out from the FAA account the news, not your own personal account, then switch over to the FAA account, re tweet yourself to get more followers and make it seem like your news. Breaking all right is that. That! That's a pro I have a problem with that now. That also opens the door to some other questions in regards to this this type of behavior. And in one of those is going to be directed at Al and I would like to know if the morning show twitter account has ever retweeted anything that you've put out on your personal account for sure, and in fact, I have not only that boomer I have argued with the morning show account on twitter. Even though I run both of them like I, insert which doing that as a joke. Yeah, I'm hoping I think enough people at this point. No, that I run the morning. Show account so that when they see me arguing with it that they know I'm arguing with myself. Like I'll I'll. Tell, you. Like I'll tweet. tweet something like that sort of an insult to me on the morning show account and I'll be like. HOW RUDE! That was I'll answer that back on my account, and then people will right. Don't you run both of these accounts all right? So this is going on. This does go on occasionally. Because you and I control this radio programs. And I don't think so I think I've lost control about. Thirteen years ago I. Don't do it often, but occasionally I will interact as if I don't run that account well, so, but this is. This guy also did exactly that where he interacted with his own. He's learning from Al and here we are living in the what I call the hypocrisies zone. Yeah, this is the this is the era and year of hypocrisy. So now we are living in that. Now we're finding out different areas where this is actually happening in our own world both professionally on the radio station then within our own little group here. Okay I understand an AL admits to this and Al also has an understanding that most people believe that he runs both accounts. I think that's different, but when you. If you're the new guy and you're doing this, is it? Is it a sort of a different field for you or no? Are you telling me that that because als doing it then it gives license for everybody else to do it like here. Here's the one where so he's. He's quote. Re tweeting something it says this collection of items like our version of scenes from an Italian restaurant. Only it scenes from zoom interviews, and it doesn't have the fabulous writing of billy. Joel and it goes quote. Sorry. Lou DEEPA Wfan. Does that he puts his name. He. He's actually tweeting to himself right. So He Let me finish the whole thing. Then he tweets. Go seriously guys. I know on the new guy but damn i. get it though so. I can even responds to his own tweet even on mixed even worse, so he's trying to get followers. Isn't that right Al? Not what he's trying to do, yeah, that was like in twitter. I started that woulda worked. That does not work anymore. Unfortunately, just getting tagged like when people used to say oh. Could you re tweet me as if they're going all of a sudden, get a ton of followers. It just doesn't work that way anymore. So. He's trying but. That that that that's old, twitter doesn't work so. Educate me on this, so if someone is hired to be like a digital media guide. wfan is the goal to grow that person's own personal account or no. I would think it's to grow the The brands account all right. All right just had to make sure I didn't know if they told you to grow your own personal account, and that's going to help matters, but it seems to me like that's like a little bit of the self-serving thing you know. You think there are guidelines emplaced. That is directing him, or do you think he's just out on an island doing whatever he wants to do? I. Don't know I'm not sure and is he likes? His boss at work. I think they both have the same boss. That it's. But they're old. That old boss has gone, so it's a new big right. Yeah, NEW BOSS! Who nobody likes. He's going. I, don't I don't I don't i. don't even know who that is. Talking. About just trying to get my head down at he get into the office. Get Out of the office at home. Go at home. You know that's it. Don't don't get yourself in embroiled in politics at the office now what I? What? I WanNa know though is I. WanNa know that re tweet of the nets news where he said the nets have officially signed Michael Beasley and then re tweet. It was re tweeted from the fan accounts. That's how I saw this. Did he self correct? There's three options one. He said I probably shouldn't have done that. To someone from above came in and said you can't do that or three. Which is my favourite option? Someone else who has access to the wfan twitter account went in undid it themselves even. Knowing. Knowing that yeah that that that was the wrong thing to do, and he had to look and go. Wow, someone, just someone just overridden me and didn't even talk about it. That would be. That would be juicy, you think. That something like that or no. I do I'm not. I'm not seeing that he did, but if ants answering the question, do you think he is capable of doing something like that? Yeah, so I could see him being upset at something like that and going to fix this and going in and undoing the re tweet now. Would he reach out to him or not? I'm not sure, but there's a lot of this is a whole sewer. Pick going on over here? Here on the digital side of what's what's happening, people are fighting for power. They're re retweeting themselves. Trying to get their own personal twitter accounts a little bit of a bump I. Mean it's getting. It's getting serious out there. In these twitter streets at Wfan, apparently twitter streets of Wfan, and then the new guy did claim that he's a big listener, so you are reaching him if he was telling the truth about that. Now let me ask you this. Do you think he'll put out a video of us? Discussing Him and then he'll tweet that out. That would be I mean after all of this discussion that way it would really really depend on what level of attention Hori is if it's just nominal or somebody us. tweet this out immediately. Just know this. I just want to be on record that I did not bring this up. I'm just being told about it and acting to it. That's all sure well. What are you afraid off though? It's not being a snitch when the person does it themselves, right? It's out there for twitter for everybody to see that's what was going on. It's not like ice. Heard of something behind the scenes brought it to the air. This happened on my phone I was scrolling. I saw it was out there I called attention to it. That's what happens when you do these public displays of things, people are going to consume it the way they want to. For example I got that last tweet told you about with where he was talking to himself via your tweet over that. Billy Joel thing. An employee wfan reached out to me and said there's some concern that this individual is speaking to himself. They wrote to me with a screen shot of that particular picture, so it's not just me. That's gotTA. The noticing these things it's, it's out there now, but but al has admitted that he does the same thing he has done. Yes, right. He has done the same thing. When you were doing that Al? Why were you doing that? What's the reason for that? Probably I felt like boy. Haven't really put anything out here in a few days I do love attention. I also sometimes I have to have an internal battle like if I shoot a video back when we were in the studio, let's say I shot a video of like. boomer wrestling Eddie to the ground in a headlock I'm like this is going to get a lot of us. I, probably should put it on the morning show account, but I really WanNa do it from my account because. We the battle. I understand. What's going on with this? Trying to figure out how. His own nothing, but who? Yeah, I listen I get the hypocrisy here. I do believe that it's different and I mean. You agree they different. Ask because I because I did create both accounts and grow both accounts. Yeah so I feel I. Just hired swooped in just got hired got access to the fan account. That's got over one hundred thousand followers. They'll let me get some of this action. A little bit different. Yes Okay well. Maybe he's learned now and if he is A. Media Mazen or whatever the reason or how he got hired, he should realize what Algis told us. That Doesn't work. It doesn't work anymore that that that thing doesn't work anymore. It's not worth the risk. Time drops. In a long time, and always of it, that's. Perfect because. Just just delayed the word like two seconds if he is A. Great Anyway all right. We'll see what comes of this. If if anything I just need to. As you've talked about before, boomer I I, take it upon myself to sort of make sure that everything is run properly, and if we have issues like this at Wfan I gotTa. Make sure if people are going left and they need to be come back into the center. I got a knock them back a little bit. That's all. has fired. Who Cares? No, no, no, no, you could in. Time, no, not doing. Doing. Right now the new. On unprecedented new abnormal. Our in together. But yeah. Yeah. We're all together all right. That's for sure. I! Don't WANNA fire. Together, everybody's yes same we are. Not Trying to get anybody fire just WANNA. Make sure we're all. That doesn't win the right thing here, no I. JUST WANNA make sure everybody's doing the right thing. I don't want anybody. Get fired. You know that everyone's the anybody fire. I didn't even say that well never mind. We don't want to get anybody fired, but I I just WanNa make sure that you know when these things happen. Hey, I didn't do this. This guy did this right. That's what he he's the one who. Who tweeted that out and we just happened to see it. All right now, we all know about it. We all know about it. It's the morning show with boomer, Assias and Gregg Giannotti, boomer and Geo. boomer and Geo on fan CBS sports, network and radio DOT COM CEELO is back with us. He does have an update this hour. That I hope does not have seven or eight in baseball in like the previous. What six updates that you've done I? Appreciate your efforts. Put Man if I hear one more exit below or whatever I'm just GONNA lose. That was I played for it to be mocked. Not because I thought it was interesting, that was kind of the point so I. Guess that didn't come across. US hard on everybody at Wfan these days. Yeah I actually Kinda liked it. He is really all you like. Don't bring baseball sound under fire. I understood why he did what he did. He talk to mock it is. Doing Kyle Got Yoshi Kyle. He got Yoka talking about spin rate. You really thought that I thought that was all that important. That ought to be played the problem. The problem was it was previously. You hit me with like four five equally as boring caught in that one came in and I was like man. You're really trying to. I'll tell you what POW I'll call the mets and the Yankees, and I'll make sure the managers have a word with their players and tell them start be a little more interesting during This summer camp to point out here. Okay, you are the editor here. You don't have to play the borings. We got to play something else. You'll be like tired of hearing. You talk and play some audio. That's that's not true. That's that's not necessarily true. I think all of us would agree that. We would prefer you talking really pouring boring bore down bites. Yeah nine. So let's see what you got this arison. Allies tweeting at himself again. So you know that and I totally fulfil, there's all my cushions have now been brought him outside awesome. His days all squared away. Yes, an hour and a half left to the weekend. Good stuff all right, so g! They're doing. Baseball this hour, because because you don't want to hear, and it's boring, so no baseball. Okay, WE'RE GONNA. Stay, you're you're missing the point on? Baseball just see you act like the only way you can do. The baseball stores is if you do boring I mean we agree with? We cover the mets. Did I already mocked? CESSPIT is for not running out his simulated game home. Run which you guys didn't like either, so you know there's not a whole more I can tell you. It wasn't that we didn't like that that created. That was good. That was the good part about it. Is You, had a different opinion and we were. We were talking about I thought that was great more. That's what I'll tell you what they want to speed up the baseball games just have them go back to the dugout. That's the thing like so if you hit a home run in the bases are loaded instead of everybody running around the bases. Run right into the DUGOUT. Get the ball to the pitcher and let's go back that. Toss just walk right back. That would be awesome. Yes, kind of like our softball games when you know, boomer gets a single trots down the first. Cheese. You're on thin ice. You're. Very much on thin ice and I know how much you love playing softball and shortstop and all that other stuff I did just easier in that regard. The way I look at it. boomer is I have until twenty twenty one to get back into good graces. Going to be sniffing the softball field until next spring sounds sniffed us. What do you got in that cup today? Coffee well. Interesting all right a little more from Julian elements public invitation to Sean Jackson wants to take him to the Holocaust Museum in DC intern. He would attend the African American history and Culture Museum also in DC, and then he said they could go for some burgers to talk at all over as for the broader message from. We listen. We learn. We need to act. We need to have those uncomfortable conversations. If we're going to have real change I think he might have been listening to Joe this morning because he was saying I hope he's actually reached out to Sean, and he's not just saying this on social media so I. Don't Know Fifteen or twenty minutes ago or so. Eshelman tweeted out he into Sean spoke for a while last night. And he says we're making plans to use our experience to educate one another grow together. Stay tuned so there you go. They've had a conversation and they are very good moving forward as far as take care of that and educating themselves and coming together. So that's the amazing thing is Julian I. Don't mean is giving Sean. Sean Jackson cover is basically what he's doing helping him. He's helping him significantly and the Shaun Jackson owes a debt of gratitude to Julian one hundred much like Riley Cooper with debt of gratitude to Michael Vick. Yes, in the way, Michael Vick handled that whole situation, so there has to be an adult in the room somewhere along the line and it and it definitely helps when that person comes from the group that has offended. And in this case, it's join element, so he is, he's putting out a very strong message which is great, but he's also going Sean Jackson. To come together with him as he also says he wants to learn more about his culture. If you understand what I'm saying, you can, you can understand why Juliana is doing this and how he's doing it. which I think is great. I actually do think it's great. Because more people have to show empathy and more people have to show an understanding for education and I think that's great. I really do yeah, I. I saw you see Shannon Sharpe. Said on whatever show, he doesn't skip. Bayless that Farrakhan is not an Anti Semite actually said that on the air during his show I wanted you so badly because I know you have a prior relationship, but wish you were sitting there in the chair that skipped bail us was because it wasn't really challenged all that much. We know there are a ton of evidence to the contrary, but. That's another one I mean. It's just I. DUNNo, whatever? Let's just move on today. It's Friday and a tropical storm. We're GONNA talk to. Go. All right now. Former giants Alvez's live Jeff Schwartz was on with Moose and Maggie yesterday, so he has certainly made his thoughts and feelings about the Sean. Jackson's post in his comment known he was one of the few Jewish players in the league when he was still playing so kind of similar to element, he talked more about you felt like Sean was just. Just uninformed and uneducated, so he wasn't totally crushing him, so he did come on, and give his thoughts on that yesterday. Now that aside Maggie eventually tossed out a question about playing for the giants and their culture, what it was like, and that's where things got a little interesting, so Schwartz had some nice things to say also some not so nice things to say. There are a family atmosphere the great job with the families, but there's just like. There's just sketches everywhere. Man Everyone each other in the locker room. Everything gets back to the coaches like it's just. Place I. Don't know if things have changed now. He did say like Tom Coughing a lot as a coach and has a man. He liked ownership as well and the atmosphere, but the whole family thing was great and whatnot, but he's just like like things that happened the locker room and get up to coach and I just never been a place where they were just like people telling on everybody like. If you said something, it just would get to coach and it's like i. just like go okay well. Nothing like you can't just have like. A moment in the locker room you have to talk in. And then his star, just kind of ended there, and he launched into something completely different, and then he goes on to say that management in the coaches weren't on the same page. Those are just can't Front Office and coaching staff. I was told at times I was certain position, and then just wasn't. There was supposed to be just was Yeah I. Wasn't GonNa join what time there had been in worse. Situations. Unique Unique Walker. He couldn't get the words out fast enough. He had so many. Contradictory being pulled in two different directions and more for you, then move on. He then Kinda tried to explain the reasons for that. Disconnect the same staff at one of the Super Bowl's outside of Ben mcadoo. You're there were still kinda like that. You have that feeling of the same guys aren't really there anymore. He was fantastic. He gets about Rotman. He's great I love you I, mean he gets. Rap. The bad I, he met his Fars is personality. 'cause you know we've heard about ally. Right behind on. We all know that he is a locker room prankster. We know that he's a great teammate. We know that all of his players that were playing with him, enjoyed playing with him, and enjoyed being around him, and he was a consummate team player, and really good leader, and took a lot of pressure on himself and deflected a lot of stuff that was going on around him. There was only one player that really did not want to play with them. Who gave him a bad rap? And that was Odell Beckham junior when he went on ESPN and didn't endorse quarterback. Little Wayne. I would've. I would've asked him in that that interview aren't what is the instance that happened to you or someone ratted on you to the coach? Hold onto for all these years. They did ask him and he said that it wasn't so much an a personal experience. He had just various things I'm just telling you what he said I play that cut because I didn't think it was that interesting jail Lawrence. It was just yeah, exactly. You never know what co employees going to snitch on you. You just don't know it's hard to tell when. Somebody is going to say something to management. Get an employee in pro in trouble or something like that. You just never know. He was getting back to the coaches which made me think you know coffin? Put that leadership council in place or whatnot, right? He had his sort of his lieutenants is four or five guys that he would meet with on a weekly basis, so I'm wondering if that's kind of. Media I you know because of the throngs of media that cover all the New York Franchises I. Think Media Works both sides I. Think The you know the. I'll use Mitch for example here. I think you know when when Adam gays signs mini. She's like this is the greatest guy in the world. This is going to be the greatest forward thinking coach for the for the jets and all this other stuff, and then you know. I think Adam Gates comes to new. York, and he's told look this Guy Mini Schmidt is ran a lot of these guys Outta town here. He's basically ruined the lives of a lot of. Of Coaches and made it very difficult on coaches to do their job because he works up the fan base, and then the fan base gets going crazy. Then we got people like Joe Beningo and everybody's screaming and yelling about hell where the jets we suck, and all this other stuff and people get fired so and then all of a sudden you know Adam comes here and says you know what measure cut off the more. Nobody's giving you any inside information so. Writers work both sides they try to do. They try to give information get information. They're always looking for the next great. You know like inside story and all that other stuff and I think that's what creates a big problem for the players here now top of all of that you had the social media aspect to it, which makes it even worse. Big Ten becomes the first power five conferences to go to a conference only season for all fall sports, of course, the coronavirus pandemic. That's the plan for now at least, but it is fluid could get worse. Here's Ohio State Athletic Director Gene Smith. Reiterate enough the fact that we we might not play. We just might not. Think that people need to understand that and he's talking specifically about college football, so this all remains to be seen I know there's been some talk about perhaps pushing it to the spring I. Don't know if the big conferences could even pull that off, but with everything that's going on in the virus spiking parts of the country. There's some real concerns. Concerns. Now that they may not be able to get this off the ground that was Smith courtesy of bt N from yesterday. The Knicks had their second interview with Tom. Titova zoom yesterday he reportedly has the inside track on the job Jamal Crawford and Michael Beasley, joining the nets down in Orlando for the NBA restart, and did you catch Joel embiid yesterday? Flights Orlando he had like a full hazmat suit on he did he did, and he was serious, right. There wasn't him like joking around. He was serious. Totally. My Buddy bought one of these things to go on an airplane. Mocked me now. All of a sudden Joel embiid shows up with one of these things on, and now it's all. This is what's happening I. I didn't mock. You would all. My friend, it is Bullcrap Your Miss Remembering that instance I, said that it's exactly what I wanted I was buying one for my entire family, and they even had a child size one and I said we were going to go on our winter vacation after all because had has met soon. I got one from Dupont. Even ordered your, so you're gonNA look like the jetsons. Jonny says the jets. So I was not mocking you I actually took a page out of your friends book and they got a Hazmat suits. May Joel Embiid was listening to us no. He's been even before yesterday. He's been. He doesn't trust the players to follow the guidelines. Hundred percent, so he's. He's basically day. He speaking the truth now on that and the other thing I would say why don't they just plan has matt suits. That would be an image. That's true Maatje. Guys run around has met suits. Yeah, no I think that's a great idea I'm. A-, Yeah? They just played like. A Spiderman suit like make uniforms like from head to toe cover everybody up and then have some sort of breathing apparatus on the side. We can get some fresh air because you have these masks now that that actually can. Create fresh air for you, so you can breathe. So, why not do that those the mass like what they were wearing and breaking bad that have the the big like ventilator circles on the snow. It's a massive goes around your face, and it actually has a fan electric fan, and it gives you ionized air, so you can breathe, so it doesn't get too hot on her there and you wear this like I would say a spider man costume right and you have it in the team. Colors and everything else think about how many people are buying these. To be in the bubble for that, you could just play the games as normal season. Let's go traffic and if you were a priest Holmes, you'd wear it out to the mall and everybody would know who were. These Rajon Rondo post about his hotel room down there in Orlando. So. He's not having really bad. It's exactly what you'd think. One of those hotel rooms would be like I. I'd love to see Lebron's room as compared to regime rondos. But you gotta, but you gotTa believe like they're all used to the privilege of a have. then. You know that's the thing you know. I WanNa five-star room, and this is what I expect I don't WanNa four point five star room. Who called I won't tell six. There you go, that's that's what happens when you make that kind of money in the expectations that you have and the privilege that you gain right like when you go down to the Super Bowl and you're someone who is going to be anchoring the pre and post game coverage of that, said Super Bowl, and they put you in a room with no hot water and bedbugs I mean. That's a big problem CR-. I'm telling. US Hey. Somebody's paying for it. I wanted to be the way it's supposed to be. Sure. That's fair. Yeah, indeed, Tiger Woods is coming back next week. He will play at the memorial and event. He's one five times in his career to be his first PJ tour appearance in exactly five months, then, of course, that announcement coincided with HBO letting us all know there's a two part docu series. chronicling tigers rise fall and comeback. How the airing in December I believe reporting this twentieth. You Know Alan I. We're talking about this morning on the warm up from five to six that. I was saying based on the names that are in like Rachel. You could tell it was involved in. This tells me that tiger is not, but I could be wrong about that all right. The interesting thing is that the PGA tour is at the same spot two weeks in a row. Yeah there was an event that was canceled. So this is a charity event. Essentially the workday charity open I think it's called that they're playing there in place because they wanted to have an event this week at Jack, Nicklaus course there in in Dublin Ohio and they'll be back there next week. And that's one tiger shows up at a lot of success by the way. Yeah, that's right five wins there for sure each the morning show with boomer, Esiason and Greg. boomer and Geo. fomer science in Greg and ninety boomer and Geo on the fan across the country on.

You have boomer. It the team great job during the initial kind of you know four eight weeks of the crisis building. Thousands of ventilators, literally millions of face masks face shields. Also the respirators we we bring our manufacturing plants backup building vehicles on May eighteenth. And we're currently a full capacity.

Are People starting to get back into the habit of buying new cars again I know it's something that was. Sort of went on hiatus for a while because of fears of the virus. I'm just hoping that people are getting back making their appointments I know when we were out at Otis Ford out and quad on long, island they were taking appointments, and they had a lot of inventory outside or you starting to see people start to pick up and get these a buying some Ford's again. Regio when we when everything went dark and mid March. We of course, a lot of Americans didn't know what to expect in the last two weeks of March were. Were really down. You know. Industry was down well over fifty percent. It recovered supposedly. every month in Q. TO LABEL May. April March may better than April June. Better than may affect you. Roll up the months of May and June on a retail basis. That's customers going into dealerships and buying course. Online you recently the way they're doing it. We were only down around ten to fifteen percent. Many of our vehicles like the new rangers explore I. W- were up year over year and F. One fifty or after was was flat, so it was much much better than we would have thought late March. We're very grateful for that or did a great job been. Customers are still out there buying vehicles despite all the. Issues surrounding the the penick. You know I know you were talking to me earlier in this year before the pandemic it. You guys are excited your unveiling the new Ford F one fifty next week.

From the Willow run assembly plant I actually participated with Dennis. Leary who was the voice of f one fifty for years. We'll runs where we. Produce thousands, of B, twenty four bombers during world, war, two, so we think it was really fitting. kind of setting a great response to the new product which will come out towards the end of this year or so producing new F one fifty. It's going to set a new standard for capability. Talk towing payload. Technology over the air update. On board generator that can power your house or or worksite, so it's.

Featuring the three different Broncos we're to bring to the market. It there's unbelievable anticipation for it It's the most searched vehicle on Google has been for a while for vehicles, not even. Out there yet, and as soon as those broadcast are over on Monday night, customers able to go a website get more information about the vehicles about the Bronco and and make the for one hundred dollars reserve a spot in production. Which is GONNA? Be a really critical as we think are going to be sold out for? A long time in terms of the initial production, so we're real excited I'm personally you know super excited about love the broncos. I know you're a big fan.

Feel like you're the guy that could get that done so I'm a Vikings Fan, so purple and yellow would be great al. Dukes likes the buccaneers, so those colors in. A Dolphin Fan, so can we get those done on the Rangers before you answer that Mark Before you answer that? Just let them know and have. We had a conversation about this. We have. To remember boomer's raptor, you WANNA paint. Was it the rap? Specific. No the Rangers for these guys for their specific football teams and I said since you guys are a sponsor of the NFL would make sense to be able to paint rangers into the NFL colors, and then just imagine how popular they would become within their NFL cities. We have done some of that on a local basis to the F.. D., A. F. Tri State of New York in the past right, but here's the deal I'll get it done, but go. You have to promise the drive the purple and Yellow One. You can't force you. Kidding me, I'M NOT GONNA. Back out I'll take that all over the place.

We're GONNA welcome in the Great Matt Hammer. He's our boomer and Geo meteorologist. Matt Good Morning. What's going on so good to talk to you guys good morning and just blame it on fe Gio everything. That bad happens today to blame it on fake. All right, we will do that. Matt, so this is a big day for you. getting people all riled up and scared about the rain and win so Why don't you go ahead and tell us what's going to happen to the tri-state area? Scattered all you know, it's nothing we can't handle. It's not the biggest storm ever seen, but certainly I mean we're looking at a good potential for flash flooding all throughout long. Island New York City New Jersey the Hudson Valley Western Connecticut as well as we go throughout the afternoon evening. You know the wind is not only the main focus of this is all about the flash flooding potential when we're talking about one to four inches of rain tonight. Matt sounds like the Emergency Broadcasting System. Really. Day in the one track mind a little bit, and you're you know you're you get that announcer voice go, but you do the Holland tunnel announcing to like you know when you go through the Holland tunnel and a cop comes through your radio where you know they're telling you. What's going on around the Holland Tunnel, Dia. You have the voice for it. It'd be perfect. Yeah, so so matt. This could be your big break if you end up doing great reporting on this particular storm. That could be part of your real that you send out to get a real job so this t feel the pressure when you're doing your reports on news twelve today with this tropical. I've been doing this a long enough. Coming up on from when I started freelancing almost ten years ago, to to now with fulltime job at news twelve. You know you don't really you get obviously in the zone. Everything you WanNa make sure you just help everybody through the rain and the wind and everything like that and he coastal flooding but you know what not too concerned or nervous about you know being a putting all the pressure on me for this at all just wanted. Know you want another job I know you wanNA. Be Able to get an affiliate somewhere and we had this idea. Having gone with this, but hold on. Say. The, one thing I do love about news. Twelve is that we are broken up into five different regions so like on a storm day today we can focus on a specific area like just long island just New York City just new. Jersey, or just the Hudson Valley or Western Connecticut as local news gets. Yeah, we know. We got. We got about you and you're right now right because we are invested in you now you're buying mad. Hammer stock and we want to see it rise. So, we had this idea, so you play the guitar singing country songs on Instagram. So we need to get you somewhere. Where Country Music is Popular Oklahoma. Texas Middle America somewhere, and you can be the country singing weatherman because nobody's doing that. So what? What do you think about that? Incorporating the guitar and singing into the forecast I like we're head is at Yale I I mean we. Can we do that? Playing the guitar in the weather breakout into a random cover from time to time whatever whatever you think, we could talk about this more, but I think you're onto something there. Nashville's a good city now, do you? You have any tornado experience because if you go there, you're going to have to be able to discuss tornadoes right obviously towards tornado alley, and and down south to towards the Midwest obviously needs to know you did seem to be on top of your game for the severe weather and tornadoes not so much obviously here. We don't get them often, but from time to time you do get a few through, and of course you study it in school and everything as well so there is the knowledge there for sure I mean even today. I wouldn't be surprised if there was a weak tornado across the tri-state somewhere. Wow those setups that you get. You can't rule it out to breaking news right there now. Let me ask you this. Matt real quickly. forget like us like the weather channel like would that be like the greatest job in the world or now? I mean obviously when you're talking about whether. That's kind of at the top of the list right away just by default, but yeah the weather, obviously any place in New York City networks things like that but as I said every time before I'm going to tell you I love my job right now, and you guys can do whatever you want. Yeah Okay Matt. We get it so Do I really? Do you know we understand? I mean of course we as local as local. Hammer. You have the whole thing Jesus. I mean. James Twelve everytime we're trying to help you. Geez all look gift horse in the mouth here every time, so Al Dukes just moved to the ocean. He's you can see it from his window them Brickley. Bradley Beach. And, so is there some concern that his condo is going to get swept away in storm surge today Matt? No, no, no, no, you'll get some minor coastal flooding there for sure and I'm looking at the radar right now, and he's got some downpours moving through around there. But and you'll get some wind gusts read the shoreline about thirty to forty five miles per hour, but I will be just fine come Monday. Eventually at some point with the The rising seas. He's GonNa. Be swept away right. Deal for long-term living when you have the risk for these dorms in the summertime, you know it's always a possibility so as long as the insurance is checked up just as we get to go. All right now, you know. He's living in an area where climate change could really have a profound effect on his life. Isn't that true? I mean we're all dealing with climate, change right now. I mean obviously the earth goes through these periods of warming and cooling a right now we've been on that warming trend and we've seen actually just a fun fact for for today to this is the earliest that we've gotten to the letter ethnic. Atlantic hurricane season in July. August and September storms for us, so that's just a sign of not necessarily stronger storms, but they're happening earlier and quite frequently over the past couple by the way man. You must have been watching the weather channel because I saw that. Story last night.

Six o'clock New York City, a summer Friday not many left as we have detailed Betty Times before his Al Dukes we'll tell you who knows how many have. Well, we've got one today hopefully it's a good one usually on a day like today we would be previewing. Yankees and we've got the subway series can't wait. We're GONNA pack the Ballpark it's going to be awesome. We've got five games in three days. How good can it be? Well, we will get to that and we will discuss that because it is important the Yankees. Need to get themselves back on track because they've been bad the mets on the other hand had themselves one whopper of day yesterday out at city field and so right wrong or indifferent. We probably start their Brodie van wagon and foot mouth hot MIC. We've got apologies all over the place at the end of the day. A Weird Day in Maitland good morning boomers size and how are you Sir Good Morning Jerry Zog great to talk to you maybe apology invited you out for drinks. Last night, you aren't able to make it. I was in your neck of the Woods Yeah Middletown New Jersey at why do I owe you an apology i? was you know it's thunderstorms out and everything? You kept those kids out on the field and those? Storms No, there's no rain nothing happened I was driving back from middletown yesterday as I played golf down in colts neck and had a great dinner right in right in the center of Middletown right there. Actually Governor Murphy was act the restaurant the night before, and it was just nice to be out at a restaurant with a couple of buddies having a nice meal sitting down and I figured you know what? Let me reach out that Jerry recco because the owner of this restaurant said that Jerry recco lives right down the road about that and I'm like man he the. Owner knows Nicholas knows his celebrities and knew that he had a celebrity in his mitts and Jerry RECCO and I said, well, I didn't realize you live that close the middle because I don't really know much about Jersey knows the Garden State Parkway or the Jersey Turnpike and the parkway has like thousand exits on it and you got to stay in the local side or the express citing fear express side you miss your your exit, right? Yeah and then and then trying to get from the due process golf course that I play just that which I love by the way. From that to the restaurant, you got jug handles and everything else on my. I'm totally confused all over the place, but I'm happy to report that me and Janelle basically took three hundred bucks from both Doug. Wells and Vinnie score and Tino good for you. Yes, and we we basically bounce back from last year's embarrassing loss to those to meet heads and we took the money from them and I made them by dinner last night at rooster barrel and I invited you over there and wanted you to come over and have a cocktail with. I would've loved to. Sign some autographs for the owner. He loves you now had you. I don't know asked me a couple of hours prior I get the text at six forty two. Yeah. I didn't realize that you live that close. That's what I'm telling you that guy. So Nicholas comes up and he says, you know Jerry RECCO lives right down the road and Y'all excited about it and I was like well, you know we reach out the Jerry I'm in town I'll have come have a cocktail with the boys 'cause this is what boys do after they play golf and I have to tell you by the way that rooster barrel restaurant. Yeah. Awesome. Great. Some awesome. Awesome. I would've liked to have gone gridlock. Look getting a table when they're. They are practicing social distancing. So all the New Jersey social distancing police could take a chill pill and relax for five seconds. Right. I felt very safe in there although there was one guy in there sneezing they must have had like ten sneezes mean big heavy duty sneezes. Yes I. By the window so and he was using his Napkin. So maybe he has allergies or something I'm not really sure but other than that. It was it was a terrific place. You'll be able to get in there for a while simply because they are social distancing. So they have limited seating bright but I am here to tell you that that food is is top notch. So rooster barrel down there middletown treated me really well, last night. I'm unfortunately, you weren't able to come and you know I checked out yesterday I was so exhausted after yesterday's show talking about what's going on in the world of sports in the emotions of Dom Smith and what's going on with Jacob Blake and what happened in Kenosha. Wisconsin what's happened in Minneapolis what's happening in Portland was happening in Seattle I'm just what's happening here on our own city. You know it's just it's it's exhausting. It's just exhausting talking about it, and then of course, you have some teams in Major League baseball decide not the play other teams decide to play the NHL Pauses for two days. The NBA is GonNa Pause for two days and turns out that Michael Jordan is was the conduit between the NBA Board of Governors owners and Chris Paul and the and the Players Association so. Good thing Michael Jordan got involved and was able to understand the players plight. He also spoke on behalf of the owners and Michael Jordan basically brought the NBA together and they're going to resume. It looks like on Saturday the NHL will resume on Saturday and he guys banged up get a couple of days off hopefully they'll be able to get back to where they were prior to this day this today pause and and hopefully we'll get back to a little bit of normal but I think any time and I heard you talking about this morning. Anytime, we have something that looks like what it looked like in Minneapolis and Kenosha is going to spark. A major level of intensity and when you see what happens not only to the victims in these cases, also the collateral damage that comes along with it is just totally unacceptable in our society and unfortunately. You know. I don't I don't know how it's GonNa Stop I. Don't know if people are going to be able to sit down and have a conversation. Everybody keeps talking about these tough conversations that includes every aspect of it that it's a three hundred, sixty degree conversation, not a one hundred and eighty degree conversation because there are a lot of problems all throughout a lot of different neighborhoods in different backgrounds in different. Situations and states in towns and cities all across this country that affect a lot of people so. Hopefully, somewhere along the line, we can all come together and we don't all have to be so angry all the time and we can get back to enjoying our sports over the weekend. Yeah and you know some of the Games that were played yesterday were games and series that pause the night before many others didn't and they didn't play and there was a lot of confusion around. With the mets Marlins were going to do yesterday, we saw as it turned out the forty two seconds of silence they go out they shirt down, they walk off and they decide they're not going to play. So you're left with now the subway series starting today as they I assume they're going to be back on the field by everything I read the Yankees and mets will play. Today it was. You know I I know the Wilpon are on their way out and I get it and they're selling the team in. August thirty. First, as you said, few times this week a very big day in Maitland and four them as they will get their final bids from prospective owners. Yesterday was a bad bad day though for them just because of the way you. Know the the video was leaked the way it was out there for people to see on their website I'm not sure who's to blame but things like that can't get out you know the hot mic from from Brody who apparently had the story wrong. He's then got to come out and apologize you get the sense. He's not long for this job, which is not anything new you've discussed. that as well especially with new ownership coming in then the apologies from him, you get the apology from Fred, you get the apology from Jeff, just a we you know it has been a bizarre year and yesterday in Maitland a bizarre bizarre day and I watched a lot of it. When I got back from, you know from practice last night I got a call it the. Brody press conference. The one thing I'll say sit up in took accountability and accepted it and responsibility and apologize, and I thought that was the end and then we get the statements as well. So just so weird feeling around that team going into a subway series that both teams need boomer. You got five games here and to talk about actual sports for a minute you've got a med. Team that won the three in a row or they they started to play good baseball. Then they were flat then you get the game I don't know what they really don't know what they are and I gotta be honest with you I don't know what the Yankees are at this moment either with the injuries to them and not guys being able to guys not being able to stay. On the field, this is going to be for me in a shortened season. I think a turning point for both these clubs with these five games in front of us because one teams got to emerge with something positive Jerry welcome the pandemic twenty twenty where they change on a daily basis. Let's it. You know it's right. It's the political season the pandemic season it's shortened seasons. It's. You have you know college football people suing each other now you have the big ten players. So the Nebraska players suing the big ten conference. You have parents screaming all over this country as to whether their kids should be going to school. You have NASA administrators shutting down winter sports and not going back onto any sort of sports schedule until two, thousand, twenty, one, you have suffo- county sports administrators trying to hold out hope that they can play in the fall I mean again. There is no one size fits all for any of this. You have the social injustice stuff. You have the players passionate and the tensions that are rising in the streets I. Mean it's amazing. It's an amazing time that we living in I I I don't know I would think that if you are a I don't know a thirty year old for instance, and you haven't had kids yet or in the case of my own daughter who had her daughter of about six weeks ago. When you think about what the story she's going to be telling her daughter as she grows up about the year that she was born and you know how? Like sometimes people will give you a book on the day that you were. Yes. Absolutely. He'll be like a scrapbook of newspapers and things of that nature Jonah guest seventeen cents. Yes. I would think that anybody that would that has been born especially when he and Aria my my grand niece I would say that you know what guess what this is. This is your life and twenty twenty and I would make sure that I had from the day that the pandemic hit to all the way through. December thirty first and everything in between because this is crazy. It's absolutely insane and if you just take two seconds to think about everything that has happened, you know I did my final Final Sports Minute for this summer today I realized that it was eight years of sports minutes that I have been doing. Is it really eight years and over ten thousand sports minutes later? In this final one, I was thinking that it just. The amount of stuff that I've had to talk about over the last three months is just been insane. And a lot of it has to do with how covid nineteen impacted sports. But then on top of all of that, it's also how. You know the. These incidents that have happened in. Minnesota Minneapolis and of course, Kenosha Wisconsin with Jacob Blake is just it's just been incredible the intensity and the discussion points coming from all sides and you know the extremes on both sides basically make the eighty five, ninety percent of us in the middle just scratch our heads just make us angry so. I'll tell you is that it's it's a Friday. Hopefully. We're going to have some good weather. I. Don't know we'll have great weather tomorrow but I play golf yesterday I was checked out for about five and a half six hours and it was a great frigging day. That's all I can say because I was exhausted when we left here yesterday I can imagine and you know it's not going to get easier. You Know I. Think you need to take your time off anything go play you need to. decompress a little bit and you know I think on the other side when you come back from your break believing into Labor Day or I guess it'll be Labor Day. When you come back, you know it's it's Kinda like head down the NFL and maybe maybe we start to turn a page I. Don't know that we will because all signs are pointing to know normal. Really Right. And we could get you know if you listen if you listen and when the weather starts getting cold and people start going back inside, you know who knows what we'll get a second wave or not. I mean you know obviously the CDC and many governors are warning of that and making sure that people realize and I see signs all over the roads in Jersey and New York cove nineteen is still a risk covid nineteen is. Still risking, and that's true. That's absolutely one hundred percent true and we just got to be vigilant and you gotta just keep taking care of yourself and being smart about how you do that in the in my life is is gonna Ra- science and who has been doing it his entire life and you know for for him to be able to say over the last six to seven months that he has been totally healthy is. Just nothing short of a miracle and the reason for that is because he has kept himself out of harm's way. So that's that would be my suggestion to everybody if they could do that and continue to do the things that are necessary, and that's why going to that restaurant last night was so great. We actually eight inside in the reason we're able to eat inside is because the way the restaurant is built in there's there's. Plenty of airflow, there's plenty of windows that are open doors are open. There were social distancing all over the place as a matter of fact I told you governor Murphy was in there the night before, and then you know some of the social distancing police showed up because they don't like his policies and things of that nature I get all of that stuff because it's all politics but I could tell you I've felt totally safe. I had a great meal and it's going to be a great place for you to go to probably in two, thousand, thousand, five, Jerry, I don't think you'll be able to get in there. Simply because it's so popular why twenty twenty-five because it's so popular. Michael, the rooster and the barrel and I tell them I got the reference from boomer Esiason. I can't get a table I think you've used hold them like you know, hey, this is jerry. RECCO celebrity over here at Wfan and right down the road and you guys know who I am actually Nicholas Listener. So what if I call the ness for Nicholas? I would think you'd have to do that and you'd be lucky to get a table 'cause the tables are all again. If, it were a normal for normal time. You could probably get a table probably nine o'clock at night and it would be crowded but since it's not normal and they have the practice social distancing and they have to keep the tables and people seating away from each other I would say that it's going to be tough for you. How about this I call the rooster in the barrel I asked for Nicholas I say my Al Dukes in his girlfriend liked him in for dinner. Table or no table I you know I. Think Taylor Table Al Table Yeah. Yeah he's he's he he may. He may be able to help you out I. Don't know you may have to call Vinnie Vinnie Vinnie his table over there. Nicholas. You said he owns the place. vinnie's actually spend money there. So I got you know what? I'm saying it's nice to have a guy that actually spent money that you guys haven't spent money there because I couldn't get a table until now now are they maybe you will. Tell you between the jug handles and the. Hold on a second. Driving. Timeout timer timeout you make it seem like driving long island is a picnic. Are you out of your mind off the total picnic? He's gotta gotTa understand something in Long Island we go east or West or north and south there's no like jug. What other direction is there well. To get to the other side of the road you got jug can't. If you're not used to judge handles all right it it can be very confusing it's not confusing. By. Now, it can be confusing not that not only was I wasn't confused. I was showing a Guy Doug Wells who's from Jersey who went the wrong way? Well, that's embarrassing. That is embarrassing. What else is really easy when you drive in Jersey Nubile maps it's not that hard I have ways but line suck way apple took it over I don't want. What a shock I like apple but I don't know what the hell out what happened ways after APP over you know i. was never a ways guy but I heard that apple also ruined our dark sky APP. So I'm not happy about that. That's what is I don't know yet is one of the two right the guy yeah. Dark Sky they ruined that. Is Not accurate at all him. When I got my weather on Google problem, I have to tell you coming back and I'm sure there are people out there that are listening right now that were either on the Garden State Parkway Whammy or the New Jersey turnpike and just to beautiful roads especially departments the Parkway is a nice road actually with. that. Trees I always feel like when a lane is one, there's a lot of rain over there in that part of Jersey it's like it's like that part of jerseys taking a bath. Over there by the Newark and all those well, it's very industrial. Jain Norma's car wash coming right over the top that whole area there. But the Garden State Parkway happens to be one of the nicer roadways you'll find and you even have to agree with that rare bridges got like ninety seven lanes and have eight lanes. That is very true. I mean. I will say that it's Smart Planning Smart Planning yes I get it. But so I was driving in this this unbelievable thunderstorm last night and the The lightning bolts were ridiculous. Twenty twenty it was exactly right. That was been around nine o'clock. Yeah fifteen nine yes, owner we were off the field already see had had I known earlier than I don't know come over now perhaps I might have been able to do that. Well, I listen at the end of the day. It may hurt you getting a table but I had a table. So that's why I know I'm glad you enjoy this whole thing real quickly this whole thing and we're going to break but this. With Brody Van Wagon. kind of I know it makes them look a little dopey, but it also makes him look like he's got the pulse of the players like he's a former agent. So he understands what the players are trying to do. I had no issue with anything he said at all my issue would be the person that had that set up and had it live? That's the issue. What he said to a couple of guys who says it stays inside this room no issue and you know whether it was Jeff. Rob Someone must have had the idea to go out there and play an hour after they did what they did and it was goofy. It was a stupid idea I don't know whose idea was but I agree with you to me, he talked to his players. This is what they wanted to do. If they didn't WanNA play, they weren't going to play in any suggested otherwise was silly I'm with you one hundred percent I think he was in the right with what he was saying. Because he's an agent so he knows the players and he knows what they're all about. Know, but again it it's really. Unfortunate. That the mets have got the deal with this yeah and And to go after rob Manfred Rotman I got enough to deal with. And then to have to deal with something where it is totally mischaracterized. In the midst of it because it would it makes you feel is that There is a lack of belief in his leadership is a commission and I'm sure that there are a lot of people have probably feel that way. I'm not saying that that they shouldn't feel that way I'm not trying to change their minds I'm just saying that when you listen to what brody says it just really even though it's inaccurate, it does speak to a bigger problem that the commissioner of Baseball has at least from his point of view. Yes. Absolutely. Right. But that's where we're at that haven't been said. There will be baseball this afternoon and tonight whether permitting we will see and tomorrow looks like a washout. But then again, who knows we will see things change very quickly the morning show with boomer Esiason Gregg Giannotti boomer and Geo. Alrighty at six thousand, seven on the bandit is boomer. Gio in the morning Jerry recco in for the vacationing K. Shifting Gregg Giannotti he will be back next Monday Jerry question for you. I was reading through some of the NFL stuff yesterday and you know some teams had not practiced and decided pause as well and and. I know you guys were talking a little bit about it in the warm up show. So the question that I have for you, how many players at the moment are on the covid nineteen lists now up a month ago there were a hundred players that the NFL had placed on the cove nineteen kind of list that didn't mean that they had covert nineteen that could. have been that they were exposed to somebody with covert nineteen, but there were over one hundred players on that list as of today, how many players are on that list? Well I did see that they were zero positive tests from players out of thousands of tests from the NFL and there were only five positives from staff members. So I'm going to say on the list. Twelve on the list. For covid nineteen in the NFL as we wake up this morning, there is one player really list. We don't know if he has cove nineteen he could have been just exposed to somebody with covid nineteen, right? That would. Happen to be the Jaguars Offensive Lineman Ryan Pope. One. Cove Nineteen List right now in the NFL I gotTA. Tell you. I was very impressed when I saw this story I think it was yesterday. So maybe it was Wednesday I'm not sure but the you know the NHL in the NBA you get it totally the fact that there were zero player positive tests I wanNA say. Might. Be Making this number up i. feel like it was like over seven thousand tests that were taken your. Right to me remarkable absolutely remarkable and you know I know it's not you know they're not going home right now because if training camp they're also not legit bubbles either and they're taking it very seriously and there have been no issues. That's good. That's a great thing talking to a couple of the business managers for a few local teams know they actually are their own bubbles they really are they. Hotel and they go and they go to practice that go the hotel go to practice every player has been warned every player has been warned not to break the protocols and the follow them to the letter of the law and to to make sure that they're not putting anybody else at risk in to keep this thing as tight as they possibly. Can I mean look we we're we're all seeing the success at the NBA. MLS, and of course, WNBA and the NHL are having. Yeah, and it's it's obvious. So whatever they're doing is right there testing they're they're keeping their players away from the general public if you will. But. I can't go out to dinner last night. Giant player can't do that or jet player can't grind do that. Is that that the rule for every NFL team has to be. It had it. One hundred percent has to be so I told you on the CBS seminar, conference call the other day with the NFL the reams and reams of paper that they have and the the the regulations that they're trying to follow in the protocols that they're trying to follow. It just never ends and every aspect of the team. It's every aspect of the game and it's every aspect of the stadium and so on Game Day, you know this is going to be an just a massive undertaking. And for teams to half the travel and go into hotels. There will be some exposure potential exposure. So they are they are trying their damndest to make sure that they keep their players healthy their coaches healthy all the staff and administrative people healthy the officials healthy the stadium workers healthy. And they're just trying to follow as much as they possibly. Can they know there will be an outbreak somewhere along the line but as of right now, they've got this thing pretty good pretty well handled before get. Christie's real quick I would think you know based upon how well it's gone so far if you are one of the charter companies that are handling these football teams if you're one of the and they're very nice hotels they're staying in, I would think it's the safest time is now because you don't want your. Hotel, name airline name or Web War plus charter company. You don't want to be in the news for that reason. So if there was ever the safest time, it's got to be right now I would think, yeah, you just like again it's a key you can't see where it's coming from. So everybody's just got a hopefully pulled together and like I said what we've seen in the NBA in the NHL is nothing short of a Miracle IOS players in this regard in terms of dealing with covid nineteen and making the key to sacrifice of course, because they're away from their families but trying to keep this thing at bay as best they can they've done a a Huelva job they really they sure haven't last night two weeks away from opening night, and this is two weeks away from our first football Friday of twenty twenty Chris. Lopresti. What's what's up? Brought by winters, rose waste systems, creating a cleaner and greener long island to learn more visit winters Bros. Dot com first and foremost. Let's not overlook the powerful moment that did eventually take place at city field last night sandwiched between a lot of ugliness. Really mets and Marlins out on the field forty two second moment of silence in honor of. Jackie Robinson and then now the players on both teams wave their caps at each other. The mets are headed back to their dugout, the Marlins to there's, and now the mets players are walking off the field as well. Saluting each other by doffing their caps. Lewis Brinson has just placed a black lives matter t shirt on top of home plate. The only thing that remained on the field as the two teams went back into their club houses there was obviously no game last night how he rose with. The description there on WCBS eight eighty unfortunately for awhile was very unclear. What was going to take place? There wasn't a whole lot of communication at least that was being made public with the media. We can definitely say that the players seem to get it right led by Dominic Smith and player Reps from bowl teams, Michael Conforto, and Miguel row hostile you gotta dive into Brody Van Wagons Day? Because it was quite eventful. A few hours after he joined Joe and Evan on the fan a hot mic and a hot camera from a live stream on the mets website picks up a private conversation. He's having with an unidentified person who was off camera talking about the plan for how they were going to handle last night's game. The players had apparently already decided that that point they didn't WanNa play but somebody was pushing a different idea. Seeing. Superpower. Three Great just. Multi. So he's asked there at the end who said that any answers rob as in commissioner Manfred and then he's detailing a conversation he had with Jeff Wilpon idea. Dash Ross. Rob Not Just. Getting on the commissioner there that goes viral. Obviously, brody eventually releases an apology statement saying he misunderstood and wasn't part of the initial conversation between Jeff Wilpon, and rob. Manfred. Later goes the extra yard and falls on the sword with the media during zoom press conference I apologize to him publicly. I, apologized to him on the phone and I recognize that that it was a disrespect re disrespectful move to his office into him and was an emotional day that wasn't. Enough apparently though because you had jeff and Fred wilpon releasing statements after that late last night from jeff quote I'm very stressed and disappointed to learn tonight that are general manager. Even wagon made disrespectful and inaccurate comments about our commissioner a longtime close friend. Of Mine I hold rob in the highest regard and no or Brody's remarks reflective of my views on the organization, and then from Jeff Wilpon to clear up any misunderstandings, it was my suggestion to potentially look into playing. The game later because of scheduling issues, Brody's misunderstanding of a private conversation was and is inexcusable the other layer of events. So that's then you have to say that Brody bandwagoning is winning Jeff Wilpon 's. Understanding of what's going on because if he's questioning Rob Manford or the decision to come back out an hour later, who's ever decision that was that's what brody was really questioning. Yes. Okay and he talked about how the emotions of the day and he just wanted to be there for the players and support them and stick up for their decision. So a lot of back and forth but I think what you said boomer is right and brody's around the players constantly yesterday or was yesterday and. I saw the team? Yes. So he knows he's and might be again soon. Oh, by the way is going to be against the way these things have gone I think after all of this, you know Monday can't come fast enough and Fred Jeff Saul, we'll decide what they're going to do, and hopefully the bids are significant enough that they have to consider them. That's what. You got. The other layer of those statements that people are kind of picking at. Wall Jeff initially in the statement spelled brody's name correctly later when they used it as a possessive with the APOSTROPHE S. they built y instead of an I-IT's people are saying they couldn't even get his name right in the statement so. There's a lot of Arrows Vian slung. That's kind of funny. We'd be out of everything that's going on right now. That's the probably the most minor thing. Just it's funny. It's all right though you could have a great feedback from Dominic Smith. Emotional comments Wednesday night including from his own teammates here was Michael Conforto. But feel of a very, very small percentage of what? He feels and what he's been through and when you when you love guy like the way that the rest of his seem as do you know it's pretty powerful thing. So here's a point. You know I know Dominic said the day before he thinks that most difficult part for him is that people still don't care that just shows that there's hate in people's heart. So when you hear Michael Conforto say that you know Dominic Smith the surrounded by people who actually love him yeah. Who Actually do care for him and actually showed that by not playing yesterday. So you know there are there are all these explosive statements made and we take them. At face value. Yes it's. There are a lot of people care. That's why there are a lot of people that didn't play and so dominic is probably obviously emotional and and it's intense for him and I understand that but. Making declarative statements sometimes aren't totally accurate. He did acknowledge the outpour of support. He got about how it made him feel like they are on the right path to change. So obviously overwhelmed from that aspect of how much he heard from people not just from his own team but he also mentioned that just since Wednesday night's comments he heard. From players from MLB, the NBA, the NFL, as well as multiple TV networks, and that there were people pledging money time and support to help his baseball generations foundation. So that's what he wants. He wants himself and other black players to go back into their communities to leave a positive message and give people hope and give kids. Hope that's what he wants. And that's and think we all support that for sure. Now back to brody, he did discuss actual baseball matters earlier in the day with Joe. Evan here on the fan as you'd expect they grilled him on why Jacob Degrom was held until Wednesday rather than pitching in Tuesday's double header brody says the covert layoff was the deciding factor didn't allow Jacob get his normal pre-start and in. Between, start routine and you know coming off of the mid start ten days earlier, it was too important in too much day to to try to short circuit him just so he can pitch against the Yankees meanwhile trade deadline coming fast the mets obviously aren't playing good baseball to this point one, stop them for making a deal though even if it means giving up more prospects to make. I'm not going to be. Afraid to make a deal that I think puts us in a position to to continue our path to try and to contend win this year and also put us in a position to contend for years going forward. Talked about how you know they don't want to look at the past moves they've made that haven't worked out as far as having you know what I would say. This time if I were going to make a bid on Monday, my bid would include no trades. Don't you make a trade don't stand by just stand Pat I want the team Wade is right now and let me get my guys in there and figure this out. Please stop doing stupid stuff. We are expecting Montgomery and Michael Walkup for game wanted Yankee. Stadium this afternoon as the Yankees and the mets will hopefully get started with this five game series. Our coverage begins at three twenty five. Both teams are TVD for the nightcap though Aaron. Boone detail Joe and Evan. It would likely be bullpen game for them. Then again, Boone says the Yanks haven't had a chance to meet as a team and discuss what's been. Going on across the country and in Pro Sports. So not entirely sure they'll play or if will be some sort of demonstration on their part when we get together as a team and have those discussions and see where we are, you know twenty four hours from now or sixteen hours from now have a better lay of the land. So stay tuned on that as far as the status of Aaron Judge in his calf. Pretty much looks like the same spot and everything You know it does seem minor in nature again but but certainly something that could turn into an I l. stand against. The. Next five games at least. Yeah. You might very well, you know they have to either I think it would be very smart very prudent on their part very cautious. Maybe maybe they want to keep a few other guys how to that'd be nice. Sure. Well, see, Dj Lemay you back some. Good Spoon said that he hit on the field live yesterday he's doing great and he could be activated Saturday you said they weren't back together. Who Wasn't? Oh you said Dj you. I, thought you said the Yankees haven't been together Aaron Boone said that he said that they haven't had a chance to heard the cut. They haven't got a chance to get together as an entire. An entire team. You had the injured guys in there working out yesterday and you had Lemay Giancarlo Stanton are a long lost friend that was out on the field taking live. Also, labor tours was they're doing some running. He's coming along nicely with his hamstring's but boone said, he's a little further away then lemay him. You had seven more and they'll be games postponed as protests, Jacob Blake shooting basically, all teams who were not involved in a double header yesterday did not play but she did have four double dips. The pirates swept the cardinals, red swept the brewers sunny. How good you mentioned the Reds Sunny? Do you see what Sunny Gray is doable? Third. These f
