"Roam show. I'm Bill Ryder filled in for Jim. It's totally breaking news. But there's some news out there and there's a time when had I seen as I just did. The agent from to kill Harry had announced publicly had requested a trade for the pages wide receiver. I would have made some comment like Nick Eel Harry from the NFL because of its pressure. There's something along along those lines. But what's interesting to me about? The story is not to kill. Harry doesn't want to be a patriot. It's a big deal. What's interesting is for the first time, I wondered, I wonder if maybe, actually, the guy didn't succeed because he had to be part of the New England Patriots. It's amazing how much the paradigm has shifted. Fair, not fare. Maybe it's totally unfair. After one season in which Tom Brady left one is suitable with the box and the Patriots underwhelmed. But the counter to that the context the proper context is that a lot of really talented guys opted out of that Patriots season. They were still coached up in a fairly impressive way, given the disappointments of Cam Newton of that position and the guys that weren't there, and they have just spent a lot of money, historical amount of money for Bill Belichick team and and for agency have drafted a QB and have Newton back. So the real test probably the the real answer to what the Patriots are without Tom Brady, which is another way of asking what they are just with Bill Belichick, as the focal point of their excellence is going to be the sub coming season. In the past. I just would have assumed that a guy that couldn't make it New England couldn't make it anywhere. I remember that being for me. I don't want to say this guy's name. Is there a rule against saying Tim Tebow is naming the Jim Roam show there should be. I understand if there would be Remember when Tebow failed with with New England was okay. Okay. Can't make it with New England can't make it anywhere. Maybe not. Nichelle Harry wants out. Maybe because that's a disastrous place to be. If you don't have Tom Brady. That's going to be one of the questions they get answered for me. In this upcoming NFL season. Also just nice to have a little NFL talk about. We're so close. We're so close to the National Football League. Being back in the news. Have talked a lot of baseball over the course of the last few days and really glad we can get on here on the Jim Roam show before before I head out for Phoenix for for Game one of the NBA Finals. Tony Gwynn Jr. Former Big Leaguer radio host in San Diego. 97. 3, the Fan Great Great affiliate for CBS Sports Radio Odyssey and front of the show. Friend of My Show, and now in front of Jim Roam Show. Tony Gwynn. What's up, man? How are you, buddy? Well, Bill, I bet yourself I'm doing great. I was just talking to Jim Boulden about this and I just want to ask you as a guy that's been his whole life his entire life around baseball. What is the proper way without being too hyperbolic to describe what what show how Tommy is doing right now. I don't know that you can be hyperbolic and talking about what are you doing right now To be quite frank. I mean, I've never seen it in my lifetime and granted. He's not really the best picture. Or is he the best hitter in baseball, But He's doing both at a very high level, and we've never nobody living nobody walking this earth. Has really ever seen it like this before. Do you think that that What he has shown as possible. Can and will spark other guys who are playing little League baseball right now, or high school baseball right now to emulate this, or do you think he's just all once every 100 years level of baseball talent? Here is what I believe, Um And this one's tough. I think it will spark inevitably when somebody uh um Solutionize is a sport, right? Uh I would say yes. We see it in basketball with Steph Curry, right? Everybody is now pulling from half court or at least attempting to do that to spread the range that way. Why, but I think Um Don't know how long term this is like. I don't know if Otani can do this for the rest of his career, and I would love to watch the watch It happen in front of my eyes, But I'm not so sure that is sustainable. It has to be this exact situation. I think. American League guy. Um, and you know, it's this thing I long it took time to actually get healthy enough to do it at this level. How long can he sustain it? But certainly Is. It will definitely sparked kids in high school now to you know, maybe want to try something like this. Tony, the N L. West at least the top three teams as a murderer's row of, I think, In all three cases, the Giants who are surprising the part of the doctors who are not surprised at all. And the Padres, who I think a lot of us anticipated to be great or all to my eye teams that are cable of of some real damage in the postseason, But there's three of them. In the same division. And right now it's the Padres, who are in third or what I think 4.5 games behind the Giants and the Dodgers are right up on on the Giants. They've played fine sort of 500 baseball of late. What is your perspective? And what is the general mood of of where San Diego is right now, with all the expectations as we get ready for the All Star break. I think from a fan's perspective, there's clearly some Some worry, uh, absurd spot, I think from a teach perspective. They may be. Right when they want to be at this particular time. Uh, we've seen this just as those are really Go from Dodgers leading to Padres lead the Giants, leading between some forcing his 2nd and 3rd. And I think it will continue to be that way. The Padres Still have it. Consistently been the offense. They were in 2020, and I think there's still uh, a lot of hope that they can get to that level again. Um, but they have other question marks, right? I think they don't know, like exactly what's going to happen with the Nelson Lament. Um, I think for that reason you may see a jape early in the market for a little bit of everything like he was last year. I don't know he can pull it off again. But You definitely could use a starter. You could use another bat, probably because at the very least strengthen your bench. And you can always use extra relievers, right? I think we've learned that over the last few post season, but I think this is how this race is going to shape out and you look at it going into yesterday's game. And where the five teams with 50 wins three of them resided International West So I think That will remain the same. And actually, West will continue to be the leaders of the fact. Um, I think it could change within the division. Um, as we get deeper into the season. Tony. The conventional wisdom for a lot of us out there was that the Dodgers were inevitably going to Pull away from the Padres and the Giants, or at least play at a really high level. Make it really hard for both those teams to to keep up as good as they are because of the Dodgers depth, you fast forward a little bit. Corey Seager still injured a little bit of a setback Dustin made..

"Twitter question for this hour was was dealing with the red shortstop Pursuit, which fridge and shortstop would you prefer for the Reds Right now? 56% say, d d Gregorius 34% say Marcus Simeon and 10% say Andrelton Simmons that on Twitter at Lance McAllister, thanks to barley corns, three locations. In northern Kentucky for presenting the Twitter feed. And I have a bank of lines open. 5137491 7800 the big £1.700 on a TNT for you to weigh in on the shortstop conversation. Speaking of which, when D D Gregorius joined me Tell me about a month or so ago, We talked about a variety of issues, and, of course, freed and see was first and foremost for trying to figure out what was on his mind. At that point, I talked to him about the process What he's looking for. In his memories of the Reds. Here's the former Could he be future again? Red shortstop Didi Gregorius. You are a free agent. What will go into your decision on where ultimately you play baseball in 2021. Let's say Something that they're a good team and a team that wants to win. So I think that's what I'm shooting for. You played for David Bell when you were in the red system. Did you enjoy your time in the red system? You you were signed when you were 17? You are a youngster. Then what did you think of your time in the Reds organization? I had a really great time when I was there. You know what? They were the first team to give you the opportunity to come to the stage and play so You know, I always thank them for that and described that time against local. So I mean, I had a really great time playing, got to know a lot of people and had a really good managers, any coaches and coaches, So I mean, and that they helped me a lot to improve my game T o till today, you know, so I talked to some of them toe. No. You always need that little reminder What to do to keep staying on their good fat? Did he take me back September 9th 2000 and 12. What do you remember about your mate? Your first major league hit? Whatever you know, I know it was the infield hit. Sure, ground really short and in the hole. That was when I had a little bit of speed. You're in the starting lineup and your bad in between Brandon Phillips and Joey Votto. What? What? What was that experience like it as a major leaguer for the first time. You know, it's funny, You know, I always joked around with Brandon. You know, he talked a lot and We kind of tell always told that I have fun and play the game the right way. You know, soon as I said in 2011 when I was in a big league camp, so hey, helped me a lot. Coming up, and I talked to vital a little, but he doesn't talk that much. But I talked to him a little bit, but it's always good to know T here everybody's story and how they got there and all that stuff, so that's always a really good stuff. You know, because you're a free agent. I have to ask. Are you open to possibly coming home to play for the Reds? I'm open to listen to anything. That's the thing. So anything that's good. And that game Dr. Been trying to do everything? Yeah. I mean, I listen and see what they have to offer. Have dollar talk so ever known. Have they shown any interest in you either to you or to your agent to this point. To the agency. I think they talked a little bit. If I could be a go between in the negotiation, just let me know. DD, all right. Didi Gregorius when he joined the last month, talking about his future, he is, um he's being pursued by multiple teams. The report from Jim Boulden yesterday was The Reds had expressed interest in Marcus Simeon. As DD mentioned back then the Reds had had contact or at least conversations with his agent. From that standpoint, the Reds have not been tied to a least I have not seen many reports of them tied to our interest in one Andrelton Simmons. We know this. They need a shortstop. I would think DeeDee and the other the other than the factory about DD he was coming off of Tommy John surgery, so I think it's fair to say although he'll be 31 in February. I would think another year removed from the Tommy John surgery. Now, as I say that I don't remember if it was his throwing arm or not. Now, I think about it, but you would think it least he would be more comfortable one more year removed from that surgery. Um He's a guy who makes contact. He's a guy who knows the organization. He's a guy who played for David Bell when he was in the minor leagues, but also keep in mind. They had a crack at him, and he had a crack at them last year at this time, and he chose to side with the Phillies, and by the way, Speaking of the Phillies reports tonight indicate the Phillies are expressing interest with Freddy Galvis. Freddy Galvis was a filly and eventually went to Toronto, then went up with the Reds that the season before so the wheels turn and you would think it's some point. Hopefully, it stops with one of those three. I would say, D. D is the safest I would say. Marcus Simeon is the one with the biggest upside potential, but it's ah A bigger risk because he doesn't make a whole lot of contact, and he's not much of a fielder. And then my fallback is probably Anderson Simmons, who I just did It bugs me that for two years they talked about his ankle. And if he's not the defensive player, he once was that I'm not sure he is much of a help in the mix of one of those three, the other issue Reds related before the top of the hour, I mentioned off the top that Archie Bradley Side today with the Phillies Mark Feist sand of MLB dot com says it's one year six million. Here's what is much as I made the case last night that the Reds need to and much like the Padres did kind of take advantage of the opportunity in the NL Central. How the rest of the division is basically standing down. That the Reds need to take it. It's Prime position more so than any time I could imagine going forward where you're going to have an advantage where nobody else is doing anything to say. You know what? Maybe we hadn't planned on doing much, but if nobody else is doing much, let's do something. It's still it is hard.

That's the case. That's great. But unlike what happened in the U Darvish deal, come back. No, it's fine. I don't like the Yu Darvish deal. You know, the doctors do have prospects, right? I got a lot. So the same thing here like now, if you're gonna trade Kris Bryant, I need to get some of get into that minor league system of the Dodgers. They acquired Mookie Betts, and they didn't have to give up one of their best prospects. They ain't giving up much thinking. How are they going to do it to acquire Kris Bryant? Yeah, you know.
