"Back in for Joan Evan on this Thursday here on the fan. As you should know by now because I hope you're listening to one of the last three days Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Jon Evan fans. Joe's doing a little vaca- thing down in sunny yet ballet heavens dooney afternoon thing. Mike's up this week so JJ and Evan her Pronin for him. So you're God me for the next three hours and tomorrow to the boys won't be back to their usual slide dramatics week. So I got for the next three. And we've got a lot to touch on. I two good guests plant. We we just pull these two guys out of the hat. I can't believe the ability of my team Lougee. And dope to be able to book the show off the charts. They went a head over heels to get today's two guests dove, text beningo and beningo said he'd come on his show. We haven't completely locked it in yet. But it's about ninety eight percent. We will be able to get your opening up maybe between holes of the round that he's playing down here in Florida as we speak on vacation and Lougee go on to great lengths to get head Coleman for med camp. So you may these two names before but Ingo and Coleman they will be on our show today. One of the guys I was hoping to get on if not today yesterday. Would John Hayman who told is does a regularly scheduled spied? So he's going to be on with JJ and with avenue this afternoon because I saw a Heyman tweet yesterday, which I'm having a tough time believing slash justifying in my own mind. We noted Manny Machado signing came down Yankees worrying it for a while. Whatever people are saying they never formally put an offer on the table. But it was believed it could be between two hundred and twenty and two hundred and forty million. It's water under the bridge. Now. Okay. The Yankees weren't going ten and three hundred. I don't know if the Yankees could have gotten to a years and dollars, the Manny would have said, yes, I'll take less than what I can get elsewhere, which we now know turned out to be ten and three hundred million sadly, Bryce Harper as the key guy out there. The Mets and the Yankees haven't been on on in on Harper from the start. I know there are a lot of Yankee fans who would love to see our per in Yankee uniform shoot we've talked to a lot of med Van't. They wanna see heartburn met uniform wasn't happening with the Yankees unless they could somehow get someone to completely take Jacoby ellsbury leftover money, and or trade for Giancarlo Stanton and take all his money. It just wasn't going to happen with the Yankees. And it wasn't going to happen with the Mets either because the Mets abandoned payroll in other areas during this off season the biggest, which of course was Robinson canal. And while could could always unquestionably not worth the contract that he has the Mariners are paying some. And they got Edwin d as on top of that who is a very cost friendly closer that help you out in other areas when you had a piece like that. I should've mentioned made their moves and added their salary whether we're gonna add they weren't jumping into the deep end of the pool for Bryce Harper. I know it's story here in New York than it is in other places. But we've got a lot of just good old pressure. Baseball fans in town that wanted to chime in on the direction baseball's going in. And we're owners colluding to keep free agent contracts down it lost a lot of its luster. Would Manny Ramirez got the ten year three hundred million dollar contract? Adding bright offers going to get a ten year three hundred million dollar contract. And or more. But John Hayman and last twenty four hours you came down sometime yesterday. I don't remember exactly what John said that he believed his source. I should get you too damn exact tweet because there's no reason for me not to. But I'm paraphrasing here. And then as I punch it up give you as exact tweet. That he believes it's been stated. Bryce Harper has received received and turned down multiple three hundred million dollar offers multiple. Here. It is twenty hours ago. So is the yesterday afternoon Bryce Harper is believed to have turned down. Multiple offers over three hundred million in recent weeks, comma, at least five hundred believed still in contact though Philly and San Fran or perhaps in Washington appear to have more of a chance than San Diego. Just gave hundred million Manny and Chicago White Sox. Seen more focus on Machado. I have trouble believing that now, I know John I like, John I think John's outstanding at what he does. But he's either gilding the lily year or you just taking one side of the story. If there are multiple teams out that all off ring, Bryce Harper three hundred million dollars. Who are they and the way that he said have turned down multiple offers over three hundred million dollars in recent weeks. Well, how much recent what defines recent because for me? I I don't know this. I don't have any inside information. I don't do it. John Hayman does I don't work to beat. I don't call teams in agents and have sourced in a like, I'm just a goofy talk show host. But from what I've been able to gathering everybody else's reporting and a few sources that I do have the only teams that make sense to me that would have offered three hundred million up until this point would be the Phillies. And if you go back to November when the nationals supposedly, and I say supposedly, although I told you here on the fan this week. I talked to someone last week who told why knows pretty damn close to the situation than they told me. Oh, yes, they do believe that offer was on a table a three hundred million dollars ten year deal and it Harper did turn it down. They put it out there. Just for for free agency started. So when you get that close to free agency, you're not going to just take a very good offer. You're going to believe that you're going to break the Bank and set records if you're Bryce Harper. So it was an offer that he certainly could reviews any dead does that count as as an offer of three hundred million in the. The most recent weeks. Do we really back it up to November to say recent leaks? I believe the Phillies are probably put three hundred million and change on the table. Who else has? Do you think the giants have? Did you take the Padres have? We know the Yankees Avent the White Sox supposedly, we're focused in as John mcguigan. I believe he's got this. Right. They were much more focused in on Mannie. They wanted Machado. So chances are they're most aggressive for was four Machado. And they said the Machado offer was under three hundred million. They were gonna go eight years, but with contingencies and bonuses inadequate have taken it above and beyond three hundred million. But if they were focused most on Manny, they weren't probably putting three hundred million on the table for Bryce. I think John Hayman has an excellent relationship college got bars because I think Scott Boras wanted that information out there. I think he wanted to the all of the teams that are involved to believe that thing and door to know, if you believe John Hayman that there are multiple teams with three I so if you're not if three hundred million you already, but you better be ready because I've got other choices to go to I'm sorry. I just don't buy it that there are multiple three hundred in recent weeks as in already gone by Manny, reestablish, the market. Manny reset the bar. He ratcheted up the bar as a matter of fact, and heart bride bleed will benefit from it. But I'm sorry. I just don't believe that. There were multiple offers for three hundred million out there for Bryce Harper in recent weeks. I kind of believe there's one photocopies Washington. Go back and put it back on the table. But they pulled it off after Harper said, no, thank you this. Okay. Fine bone back in our pocket, and I don't believe for a minute. They've gone back out and put the three hundred million back on the table. So, you know, we're always open for baseball conversations here on the fan. Eight seven seven three three seven six six six six Mets. Jed Lowrie already has a sore knees to go for an MRI. This is not what you wanted a year. You just helped when the Mets opened up just please tell us everybody's healthy. We've still got some things need to establish the grand contracting will be bubbling source of conversation. Probably all year. Not not one of the newbies digest shows up with his free agent contract to your banking on being your if not everyday third baseman most often dark basement jet. Larry already has to go for an MRI. I do want to ask Yankee fans of specific question. Could I it's kind of a goofy question. I'm not gonna put it on Twitter anything I'm not going to tally your roads. I just want your opinions when you check in on the telephone. I wanna give me your opinion on Twitter. You can add Jody McMahon J O D YM ACME, but I'm not going to work it out. So you can vote in we'll tally up. I'm just wondering off the top of your head. Who do you think is going to play the most games at first base? But the New York Yankees this year. Is he on the New York Yankees right now? Could it be someone on another team as we speak? I just I tried to do it off my atop my head. And I got four hundred five played first base for the Yankees last year. And I came up with four names, and I missed one. It was going to be waiting bird because they finish up to season last year. Certainly remember did Neil Walker gone over Auburn played a couple of games at first base. These since forgotten Tyler Austin played a bunch of games before they ship them out to Minnesota. And there was one other player who played first base for the New York Yankees last year. You're a member. Brandon jury he was going to be a key guy in the field. That was a steal of an acquisition by Cashman last off season. Injuries ended up being traded. He is such a forgotten guy. But this time last year, I was getting Sweeney on Brennan. Drew looks good. Andrew speaking highly a brand new they're gonna play grand jury all over the place bender newly compla- everywhere that was a really good. He became such a non factor, but he did start two games at first base for the New York Yankees. At the start of last season before he became persona forgotten about. So I asked you is it going be bird is going to be. Void is going to be someone else. Who's currently on the roster in new organization, or is that where Brian Cashman will get his handiwork in that. When necessary in season, that's the deal that the Yankees make to upgrade the first grade first base position just football. Baseball question to put in there got some football to discuss I'll tell you what I did last night after survivor told you I'm watching survivor survivor Devo day. Watch what my daughter, she's got her survivor pool. I know the two people she has this year in the pool to try and win their draft. They were still doing their draft. Right up ability. Our before the show started because they don't sit in a room and draft. They all do it by text or Email, whatever you pick your guide, and the next person knows they're gonna go somebody overseas it, but it's kind of loosely done. She's got her to participants. So I know who I'm rooting for this season. It was not a bad first episode after that I jumped into sports mostly college basketball, and there were some. Unfortunate things that happen in college basketball last night's unsurprising things that happened in college basketball. We'll talk about it over the course of the next three hours. Johnny back in for Joe and Evan here on the fan. I get my phone lines open right off the bat. Eight seven seven three three seven six six six six. No an ad from save money on your car insurance.
