"I run together tearing I've talked about this. It was. I mean I was there was so much anxiety because i. I realized that this person that couldn't see was relying on. Her and. Honestly I had no idea what I was doing. Welcome to the I. Run because podcast. We all have a reason why we run. Each person has unique purpose to answer their y. You're Y. moves you. Why get you across the finish line? You're why can motivate others. I run because seeks dunes by others by exploring the why of athletes who run for charitable organizations and causes. I'm your host Job Rashard? And I have my lovely co, my guide and life my wife Christine. This season on Iran because we are highlighting running club. Achilles international running. Club that partners guides with runners of different abilities to compete in mainstream running events. While, Achilles focuses on running. The truth is running a simply a tool for accomplishing their main objective to bring hope inspiration, and the joys of achievement for all I'm having tonight. We have John Sterling and. Terry rupp from Achilles Las Vegas Hi John Hi Terry. And good good, thank you. So let's get started. Why don't we just jump right into this John You. Are The the chapter leader for Las? Vegas correct yeah I am actually and I started kills Las Vegas together so and might cheer up a little bit, and so I kind of them right now because. Like this. This whole thing means really lot to me. Like what we built together. A couple of years ago, we started in November right Terry. Take and so yeah, it's unbelievable journey and we've become super good friends. You've run, I mean. On the what hundreds of miles together? I can't even count the hundreds of miles together I mean. We've run marathons when ultra marathon and not to mention all of the training runs, there'd be from eating. So how did you guys connect I mean starting to chapter is is no small feat. and. Chapter that success goal is no small feat and John. Irene I'm positively a lot more. Oh! Of Love the story. What are we? Uh. Yeah she hates it and so Carey is. On. Of The kindest. Muslim bubbly Lake St Personalities. Always happy and when I called National Federation the Blind about it rings so. Honestly so if you call National Federation of the Blind Nevada Terry picks up. And, so did because I was looking for athletes and. And she picked up and she was having a grumpy day. And, so she denies it to this. But like I called and I said Yeah So. She's like what. And I was like yeah, so this is what I'm doing. I told her about Achilles in that I was. A-. And immediately like there was a one eighty where she's like. Yeah, and then he's like I want to tomorrow. Let's go run tomorrow. And so the two of US started together in a park was actually we didn't even have any Achille shirts and I don't think. But yeah, so it was. A start like for me honestly. I run together tearing. I've talked about this. It was. I mean. There was so much anxiety because I. I realized that this person couldn't see was relying on. To. Guide her and. Honestly. I had no idea what I was doing I never done it or and so. It was. It really was. It really was an anxiety still run. Honestly afterward like? Like just filled my heart up so much and Jerry and I have been kind of cheese and carrots ever since. It was Terry Terry where you are runner. Before that phone call non exactly I I did a five k. a couple years prior, but I still had a lot more residual fight at the time and I didn't have any friends who wanted to run with me so I decided to do it anyway and I chose the ball, a big group of a group of people, wearing bright red shirts, and I actually lost them and kept going into turn where I was supposed to turn and. Wasser out the noise of the crowd. Finish the race I mean I've been race, but. I've always had a dream that I wanted to run a marathon so I never thought it would have been possible, and then here comes John All excited. About thirty to Kelly's and I had heard from a lot of my blade. Runner friends about A. But I'd never taken the initiative to look not. So don calls and I may have been grumpy. I met this and looking forward to I. Know I might be a John. John! But then he carries. Around and I said Yeah when you and I mean he here's this guy I have no idea who you know who he is, so I asked him to meet me out of local parts. Because there's been some, crepeau. So. He kind of anyway. Yeah, but I still love you. So we ran I. Think we ran. Block. or Miles on the first one and. Yeah I run go away and I said whenever in the Las Vegas fucking whole marathon and the whole time. Don thanks themselves. Their rock and roll. Please those rocky. Oh. Yeah, that's absolutely true. So the first day we met you know I ask Terry what her goals were, and she wanted to run a marathon, which was awesome, and I was down and in. You know in my mind I'm thinking. Please don't say rock and roll is just don't say rock and Roll Vegas these domes, and of course. As she said she said I. WanNa Run Rock and Roll Vegas. Right, this begs the question. I was just GonNa say that's on my list of things to do. All right. Now do not to it. And, this podcast is sponsored by rock and roll marathon. Just Going Has I think it's it's awesome. I would recommend doing it, but I wouldn't recommend doing the full. Is it a boring course or is it a? What is it about about bad guys that you didn't like? John for me. I pictured in my mind. Was You know fifty thousand other people around and hops, take care of. You, know my friend who can't see. And so that was really why I thought about like no. There's not a good idea. And and it turns out that yes, there are fifty thousand other people there, and we first of all it was. It was an awesome time. I mean we had a great. At this marathon? Is, the full is a poor worse so like the middle part of it like the middle. Kerry, what hour and a half two hours we. Me Ran around parking lot basically. So. Yeah, but it was, it was more. The the the massive people that worry me and I know marathons look bike and I know people actually ache. During a marathon witches, they're not always kind. And they don't look out other people and so. That was really a my. That was my biggest fear and so. I had in my mind. We say this one because. You know we have no. We live in the desert and we have a lot of great. Around? Terry said we didn't Saint George last year. And that is an awesome experience. mean an amazing experience. It's not. Super crowded. It's you know. So. So, yeah, so that was really why I didn't WANNA do. The full at the rock and roll and I. Think the Jared Probably Agree I think we would probably never do again like we do some others. That's right, yeah. I mean I think I. I would happily half just. For the fun of it to not have any straws, and just take pictures, and you know maybe a couple of shots every now and then but I don't think I would. It was too much now again, saying such a awesome occurrence. Almost the entire race we still finished it, but it was probably the most beautiful course I, and it's. One of the top ten most beautiful courses terrier, the visually impaired run, or did you just have the guide or do you usually have to I actually? Guides way because everybody wants to be part of the team. I with. Six actually We chatted is to have five because the race was. Going to be so crowded so I needed my guy that was on the other, and then one to the right and then Two people in front kind of help. Break break the. The crowd and then make sure people didn't run between my guide, and I the one that was on the cover and people try. People really tried running between us. We picked up a thick guide because. His His Ashley. Injured himself from they were from Canada, and so he happy on with us, so he's funny with him with really awesome, too, because he has so much experience running as a guide from from Canada yet my experiences of Chicago I had a runner, but they only allowed to guides so I had my own bib which I gave up to be in the back because it is so needed to have a bodyguards around you when you're running, because people do not care, and we'll run right into the back of you or will cut you off, tether or not. Other people try running underneath it, so it's definitely great to have a team around. Yeah, that's that's the only. George we had I had people with me for Saint George many trade it off you, so it also gave the guys that was on the there little bit of a wreck. On this other, because it's a lot of work for the person who's on the other to be constantly vigilant where everything that's coming up, so. I got a question Terry. I'm sorry. I just wanted to go back because I think it's great. I love the story that you guys John just plays the coal to the. Las Vegas Federation of the Blind. And spoke to to grumpy, grumpy Terry, so you guys so from your first from your first run to the marathon? How long did that take you and it's a two part question and I'm just for my own curiosity. What would you time for that? One Terry and actually a really perfect, because the marathon was almost exactly a year after we first met, and we finished in five hours and forty five minutes, but I don't claim that my first marathon because. I didn't really enjoy rock and roll as much as I. Wish. I would have is because of some of the street markings, and we actually one of the out and back and I didn't run a full twenty, six two and I was really disappointed in that, so I needed my rhythm. Stand race and George was. Race. Yeah. It was on so just so that you know the way rock and roll where you're is. They, they have all these tiny little out in backs off of little streets near the end, and so as the cut off from what they don't pick people up force. They let you finish the short the. And so what's? So dumb about what happened to offset rock and roll Terry I think. Twenty five miles my recollection is that right Terry. And I know all of sudden we were. I think we met two miles. so yeah. Yeah, so they start shutting down these these out in back. And 'cause they want people to finish. They want people to get their metal or whatever right and so. It was it was funny that we came around the corner I saw a twenty five mile mark. And I listened Cherry and. My Watch this week. And so as we came around the corner, I was like so they must have. They just missed the mark debt. So I mean we're. To you know miles from. And, so then we come around another former, and there's a twenty six mile marker and I was like really. And then we turn the corner and there was the finish right that sounds perfect. We'll. Terry was the of it looked. We walk. But Terry two miles from where we can so the line, and then of course she walked two miles back right then so like more than a marathon today, but it really wasn't satisfying. I hope the same. He's talking about and Saint. George was awesome because. She! Really a lot of stomach is which we're all familiar with. And she just our drill it and so we. We got to get our our marathon. Cry Now. Are Real real tiny six point to. Bid Settled on the watching everything, so you guys talk about the Saint George now. I'm sorry we're we're on. The East Coast were here in New Jersey. Where is the Saint? George Marathon is that in Nevada. Utah it's. About two and a half hours away, and so it was just extra special. John and our other, my other find kitty. Is, a guide came out with US and so they not only ran a marathon with me, but they spent the entire weekend with my family and I and my friend. Becky Becky Andrew is another blind runner We stayed at her saint. George House and my family got to meet up with us. On Several different. Of the race, my kids got to jump in and run the race with us. and so should extra special sounds great. Yeah, it's it's. It's a great race because it's a point point right so like you get on the bus at four o'clock in the morning. And they drive you. You know the twenty six miles out of town. and. Point two points are just so much more fun. Honestly, but I do have to say this. Jerry Rub. Just did a fifty K. and it wasn't just a fifty K.. It was an extra couple miles because there was a course right. I think I an extra two and a half. My health because it was ludicrous. I I don't know. I can't remember. I don't remember I think he'll be. K. is like thirty one point something miles. And I did thirty two and a half miles terry. We've been talking for only about twenty minutes and and UN from talking to John and just doing a five k. and now you're telling me you rent a fifty K. to. Holy smokes. Yes, and I just signed up one hundred. Hundred Miles. Yeah, I, yeah, Joe you and I were talking about this. Yeah, she's going to run a hundred. Make me! Run on great. I'm sorry. Yeah I just I just signed up surround the dog pot all five. Seventy two hour one hundred miler. Terry. How many guys are you taking with you with for that one Terry? I would do like five with you know. About this one drinking when you. Talk about this race. Is I? I need I need something to paint for, and why not go big right in Las Vegas? Why not go big or a home? You know not being what around regularly with my family and it to get out for for friends to be with people I I I saw that Jackpot was opening up their race and adding seventy two hour race and I said. You know I'm GonNa do this eventually. Why why make that eventually so far out in the distance and the future? Why not make it next year? So Ten and John and I can do on your on Linda running with his wife Stephanie, we struck up a really amazing partnership between Achilles Las Vegas and be a bad it. Running and Ken, so do it go for it. We'll support you. When is this? It's it's over has been say weekend next year, and it's in Henderson, which is actually it's the part that we run out with Achilles, Las Vegas. And I'M GONNA. have sign up. I'M GONNA set up a sign up genius and the Fox will be two hours so it. Donaldson Randy entire hundred miles with me. I'm not going to turn them away, but I'm I'm going to be like our other friend. Our other guys Leah. Who ran her first hundred miler at this last degree at dot, and she has like a spreadsheet. She had scandals. So I'M GONNA. Have my little spreadsheet. WHO's GonNa? Run with me during this time? Just make sure that my guy. Stay fresh, and but it giant party. I signed up around this well hour this last year and use my fifty cave on as a fundraiser for the National Federation of the blind. Out A goals raise fifty thousand dollars and I haven't made my goal yet but I'm just GonNa continue working on that because you know what what we do is. As! We're running. We're not not running for us. Running and raising expectations, and just breaking down those lyrics patients that people have you know Terry Y- you actually segue into into really nice part here, so let me ask you. Why do you run? You know I I ran for so many things I. I run for that. That's the easiest way to explain it I run to. Clear my mind and I ran for thirty and. That don I have created another family that we faded together. Iran for friendship. I rent for community I I it's running is not a solo activity for me running is. Something that brings people together especially with Achilles, absolutely no. Oh God Terry now. You've got me crying again, so. You know, carry something really important which. Brings. Stations and. I mean GonNa Magin Jerry United spent so many hours together running and you know what that's play great, you talk. About stuff and one of the things we've talked about a lot is raising expectations, and it's raising expectations for blind. or You know other disabled athletes right, but it's also raising expectations sport. The cited community about what blinds. Capable and it's funny. We see people I mean. We see people at the park. We run at this same park every Sunday. where, she did her fifty K. by the way. And she's GonNa do her next hundred. So but see people all the time and. Honestly when I first heard about Blind runners. I was like wait. That's not really a thing, right? Like blind people can't run. And now I feel so ignorant right and so we're about raising people's expectations of themselves who raising expectations of others? A about what this is about. That's amazing. Yeah, absolutely right. I never never expected. I would have a big goal half beyond running a marathon, and then here I go running. I'm fifty K.. A year later from my K. K.. Be Running one hundred miles. I say things like a tattoo. You get one then you get another one. I started off running from my front door to our police station, which is a half mile from my house, and then I would run home and I would be exhausted in. It would be a mile I. Did that for like a year and then eventually I, said maybe I could do a five k., and then it went to. Just you know you know how it goes ten K, half marathon marathon, and then it just went into guiding into just you. You can't stop. It's like a tattoo. You know again. I think that was the Nice Nice softball question. My wife just just through to me, so so John talking about tattoos and Quarantine. How we're keeping busy, we're we're going to get to that, but I just wanted i. just want to hear from you real quickly, so you're You're a trail runner by nature. Right so you are a runner before you started, you and Terry Started Achilles Las Vegas. You were a trail. Run right when I met Terry I was only running road I did get into the trail community here. Right or I actually did my first marathon which was saying to her so how to do that. How did you maneuver through Detroit running I, mean I I run. Essentially trail. It's up for with Achilles. Trail is hard. All the Terry and I. Have some some trails together. Yeah, we! We have a really cool video. Though Kinda went viral with we have, we have A. Ironic trucking holes and I had three guide at that time. one who I followed because I, do have a little bit of residual I. Because so I'm able to see if they're wearing their bright actually shirt with dark shorts. The contracts. So I followed, one died. The other one was to my my fried calling out. I think refresh one was calling it out to different levels of that we had numbered, and then John was behind. Probably because we're all girls wanted to watch both run wind shorts. But Where's that up numbers from of how? I. Eat and three run being just a little bit of rock that were able to little bit bigger rock. A stick up for three where I where I actually need a shopping, really raise up my feet. And then there was an addition to the numbers system. It was like rolling rocks, or you know stable or I can't I can't remember. It's been like over a year, but it was really great I think it's five miles not for trail. Run resume, but I I I could all here. I, also here, so the fact that it was probably person I could cheer where they were running, and where they were turning and my toes that I was using also served like. Because if I had a little people after a little to the right, I could hear that my whole weren't on the right kind of gravel. On Terry I have to tell you this story. I guide visually impaired gentlemen to a five K. through hoboken and city, and there were a lot of potholes, and just to go through the potholes, and I didn't realize how bad my math was because I would say in three feet, and then it would be like a inches I would say like in a yard like I just realized how horrible I was in math, when I was guiding him through and I would see the pothole and I will go. It's like two steps away like five. Sorry, you just really need to be able to communicate. Those things and the funny story. The finish line had music, and the music was not the finish line there was finished. There was music before that, so the gentleman I was with, he said already at the finish line I said. Yeah, we're at the finish line like a couple more steps. And then. When he heard the music, he thought that was the finish line because idiot me, set in a couple more steps, but the music was actually a couple or the finish line so like you really have to be on your game as far as like communicating when you're with somebody and I cannot imagine going trails with, I could barely walk myself through a trail without tripping. I WANNA. See this video. Is this a youtube video or is this on the Achilles website? Yeah, it's on Achilles. It's from over a year ago. we could probably find it and bump it back up to the top because it got a couple thousand kids, I'll have to check that one out, but I definitely want to see it. Yeah, definitely so right now we're going through some very unique and Awkward Times is. Is Nevada ANA shelter in place, or you guys all at home. Yeah, so how has it impacted the way you train and especially that you've got this hundred Myla? You have to train for. Are you still able to go out and get some some runs in over? I'm going to jump in real quick just really fast for me like in. I don't know what it is like I have all the time, right. Were sitting at home and my motivation level is like a negative one. I don't know why I should be out -freshing it every day, but I'm not. I don't know why, but Terry you go ahead. Our you training. I've seen you doing run. Yeah, I I have to agree. My motivation has definitely plummeted. I go out because I. Need to get my kids out and exercise, too, so they're on their bikes, rollerblade and We got together I live in a really really tiny quiet gated community that gets zero traffic, so I run right in the middle of the street and I've lived in this community for ten years, so everybody knows me and I just run in the middle of the street. and and and if you know for an hour, long run, I might have one. So we do our loop. One, big loop that looks like a Capital D. is a mile so. I think I've maybe the longest. It's since I've run. No, actually no. I have run a half marathon since we've been on, we've we've been in new normal of ours. So one morning I just decided just to keep going and keep going so. I set out to run five miles and I at four miles and said you know what I'm gonNA run eight miles. They got the eight is I'm I'm not done. I'm going to run and I didn't stop until I got to thirteen miles. but then I have only done like your miles. It's hard. It's hard, finding motivation, and right now I don't dare step outside because I can't breathe, and my soul and and allergies are going crazy. Yeah. It really is tough to just get motivated. I mean for so many of us. We had braces on our calendars braces that we were looking forward to, and I gotta be honest with you, Christine I've lost track of how many races have gotten canceled on us? We had a full calendar from now. All the way through to the New York City Marathon which were still hoping is going to go on, but it is. It's tough and I think a lot of it, too, is just the. You're mentally exhausted of just thinking about. The new normal, thinking about everything that's going on in the world and it's just tough to get motivated with. That and the lack of races on the calendar. Although John looks like he has something that's keeping. Busy at his house I heard something about a tattoo machine. So seems like a good idea to go ahead and buy a season. We was written at. Do. I have a third. Well, okay, it may not be written, but now it is. So I haven't thirteen year old daughter and she's a really good artistic. Yeah, she's been tattooing me. I have. Recourse gene cats now and I'm looking for three more. We have three more plan, so you definitely get dad of the year that's. That's that's a cool dad that's. That's up there as IT A. Well so It sounded like Christine. You have Right, I do I'm not like four. Them on my feet and I have one of my finger, so you know that sound right? Right. Oh God tattoo gun sounded so good, and you said you have some on your feet. I got my first two on my foot. this these last couple of weeks and oh my gosh. and. Put the Hertie spot of her. You know I was still I. Did it right at the New York City Marathon and I. It was December so I had to wear close to choose, which was a stupid idea I wish I didn't own. So I remember going back to work, and I had to put my feet in like dress shoes, and they burnt the whole the whole day they throb I said it was just a bad idea to get a foot tattoo when you have to close to choose at least you're able in. Able Nevada to put on a flip flop, and maybe that would help, but I had to put on socks and shoes. I'll never forget thinking that was a bad idea. WHO's the back this up a little bit? Don't ever say Nevada. How do you say? Nevada do not ever. Say. Carey, yeah, that's it. It's that right again. Oregon instead of. Yeah yeah don't ever say Nevada. That, Have a place called ICEE secaucus everybody's like it's how how do you say caucus, seacaucus and I? Say Secaucus. I'm sorry I'm you mutilated your? Now, I'm nervous. I have to go back to our introduction. What did I say that I see Nevada or Nevada? Buyoya Gosh. Episode? We have John Sterling and Terry Rat. Up from Nevada. Many last name crackly because I did an interview on a radio show where the. Dive had. This energy kept calling. Did I say right I'm sorry, yeah. You? Did, say right. Yeah. She called her. Terry. Roope, the whole time, wait was oh no wait which one was the one where I found you bumping into the wall at Walmart or something Oh. It was rock and roll. You found me. I. Was Amazing because I walked up around in walked up from stairs. Cool Man Yeah, so that's what we're talking about. Raising expectations right like. This woman she. Again, just ignorant right but. You, know she. She congratulated Charry on finding the radio studio where where she did her interview and it was just. So bad and then he did another interview where. We're not. The other thing is to that, but I have to remember is. Like I was. I! Like that would not have seem strange to me. Until. I spend time with people who can't see. John that's one of the cool things about Achilles you know. My wife and I were both in education, and we've been around all different types of different abilities and running with Achilles. You know it's it's an open book, and it seems like we have learned so much from other people by being part of this organization and I think being part of this organization has also made me a much better person were definitely more inclusive, and you're right now, John Terry like. The expectations of others and sometimes I. Sit there and I frown on myself. As far as some of the things I didn't think were possible of other people and I'm always surprised by our athletes I'm always surprised by our guides I. Don't know if that's a good thing that you know. I guess everyone's constantly exceeding my expectations, which is. I guess a great thing so I gotTA. Keep raising my expectations, because it's so awesome to see so many of our different athletes in guides, succeeding well and hard about to not only the Terry do if you K., but we had another athlete. If who also does first triathlon this year which? I. Mean Yeah, No, I'M NOT GONNA win by run, but we have. We have a guy he has. A guide Chris Coffee. Amazing in the two of them are teasing cared sectarian i. are peanut butter. That's right. That's awesome. I can't imagine guiding and and swimming, and then hopping on the tandem bike that's gotta be amazing and and got this far Pedro. Round has stepped UK the longest run I think. was on a training run where he was, he had set out to run ten miles, and we just kept going and I think we did fourteen miles. So. That has been the longest run And then once we started training for the Fifth Nikkei he and his guide had both missed. A bunch of the training runs because they were thick. and and I don't think he had run anything longer that. The team miles. Then, he goes to vk. Yeah I think that's right I think my wife and I were going to spend some time out in Vegas and join era. Your training plan out there. Then miles fly with Kelly's family. All of the sudden. You've been running for four hours like Oh. Wow, it's time to go home. I can't any longer. I mean. I really could keep running, but I have to go home to my kid. It's definitely better running with a friend. One and things that we talk about a lot which is so. Terry can tell you she's been running the polls. Before because. People forget and you're just running with friends right and so it's really easy to forget that the person that you're standing next to me. Right and so. She May or may not whacked her head up from a couple of branches. You know and maybe run into a pool. Not that wasn't. New Unit. Forget because you're just running. Right. Any other group run and that's what's that's what's so cool about it. I make repair. New I mean. We talked about all sorts of stuff during hours of running together all. Love Marriage. Divorces. Potential divorces raped I. Did we miss anything. I really really emphasize the family that Don and I created. It it. It's been so beautiful since we've been on. Social Isolation we've. We tried our chat and we've done to successful. they. Where we've toasted Don don birthday and my birthday. Oh, actually I had a third one recently. And it it. It's amazing. It's not just. Running that. We do together we. We're there for each other as friends and family and to now I'm GonNa Start Crying. And it's it's a beautiful community that we've created here and you know people people come in and out of of our family At one point we had about twelve blind athletes right now we have. Pedro and I. Who are the regulars and we have a couple more? Who comes when they can, and we have our core group of guys but The running community who who support Kelly Las Vegas is incredible from. Triple dare running company to Desert Dash to Yon Limit Running. I I can't even think Oh, BBC I mean the merger ship we've created. Everybody's on the same team. Everybody's out there to how great time and to run together and has nothing to do with. The fact that there is blind runners People who enjoy running and coming together. Who, who are brought together through the law, the fronting that's also I will say to that. It's kind of interesting now that you've. In Vegas off a really big city, right and so You Know Terry mentioned. or in the running companies that are. And, so we're like we're known. He's racist and so when we show up anymore. They're not like. Oh, wait appeared. There's someone blinds run. They're like Oh affiliates again. and. We're just all part of the same community it really has been. An amazing journey we've really been embraced. By the running community in Vegas. So. I JUST WANNA. Shout out to all those people that Terry said to be on limit. is where terrorists going to do her hundred year and currently I'm doing a under. There's well. At idea. Would do that. So dumb, but Yeah so. We Really now, Jerry. You're GonNa make me cry. But yeah it's. We've had a really good time. We've had some really good times running together and. Honesty like. It's just two friends running together. Or more. We have so. It's. Not any different than like Jones spread going out running on Sunday. Except you wearing bright yellow. That's the only difference the bright yellow. True Right. That's right We call it a Kelly's yellow killys yellow. That's the only difference. Is that you wearing bright yellow when you're out? Sometimes referred to as the cosmic banana. What's. Great. About out talking to you, John and Terry is that while we're. We've got some some dark days right now I.

Do not in any way encourge and I just want to tell you when when we're out. I I was so sad. When we started the last lap, their y'all. got. Both that when we started that lasts up. Because we had such a fun time, it was we had we. We finished it in.

The way over. And then it's you know more and more and more, and then at the end. You're like Oh my God. Right now and so I know Jerry you. Better last lap, but you were also happy because it was the last one. Right. Now that was you know. I WANNA. Say you running, but. Go. I mean technically we signed up for twelve hour race. I can quit fifty Mile Fifty K., but I also could have kept running to finish this well our but I. Can't can actually let me run on Friday of the race? I wasn't supposed to actually run until Saturday, but I had already had plans to San Diego, so the owner of the company made an exception and let me run my fifty yard Friday so that I could be done and then. Go home and get an get in the van and head out to my nieces, first birthday party for Saturday, so I felt more like I, wanted to be in both places at one, and I didn't WanNa be done with running, but I knew I had to go home. And just so you guys know that's beyond limit. Is the company that sponsors Jackpot Ultra here in Vegas and they have been been amazing. They have been a huge of for of people.

We also appreciate you checking out this just fun and amazing conversation with the one the only the inevitable New York Yankees broadcaster extraordinaire Future Future Hall of Famer if he asked me and many others. Here's John Sterling. I think everybody on the planet knows you obviously as the longtime voice of the New York Yankees But I I'm not sure most of America or baseball fans that's out there. No you from your earlier days cutting your teeth shall we say with some forgotten teams but ones that we like to kind of kind of delve into and and I'm wondering maybe before we get into some of those first stops. Maybe you could regale our audience with a little bit of how you even got into broadcasting in the in the first place ace well. I'm very very fortunate And believe me I have four kids and I worry about them. What are they going to do after college? They're all about ready to matriculate and in college when I was I know it's tough to believe this. I swear to God it's true when I was like nine or ten or eleven. I knew who I was going to be a broadcaster. I knew I was going on the air so I never had to worry about what I was GonNa do and I slept my way through high school and a little bit at a college and when I finally I was I had a great boost. I was going to Columbia Mbia general studies and they had a class at NBC. Given by the W NBC program director. Now I had this inside of me. This is broadcasting is intrinsic for me and so when I went to this class it was given at the studios at W. NBC given by the the W NBC program director. Two and a half hour class one night a week and I'M GONNA try to say this nicely because it sounds terrible but you know I I was Michael Jordan in that class. I mean this is what I was going to do for a living and I had been doing in my head all these years. Listening to every jockey and every newscaster and every sportscaster and the guy gave me An a plus and the only way I ever gotten school and And my kids get great report. Cars and I did did not and I he said you're good enough to go out. How do you go? Well you make a tape but what do you put on the tape and I finally got a job in a small station. Upstate New York and I've been on the air ever since thank God. How did you get though into sports in particular right so the radio thing disc jockey thing you know getting on the air but what what kind of got you into sports and I guess your first Real Sports Gig was with the old? WHOA Baltimore Bullets right back in? Nineteen seventy seventy one right well. What happened is I had I landed a big time. Talk Show it met Intermedia and Baltimore and then it's sprung out a couple of years later in to a An hour talk talk on on. WBZ TV. And I did the same show. That Oprah did later on. She did a little more with it. I might add and But anyway on I was doing a three hour radio show and one hour. TV show. And I couldn't putting sports on it because that's what I love and so I got to be very close buddies. You know John this kids were Jim Cargo. Who's great broadcast during the bullets and and And then finally I started getting sports wrap and Jim and I did Cold Games before the end of the season and because they didn't want to take the baseball guys off baseball wouldn't look good for them. Do Football and then I started filling in when Jim would go away on basketball and it led to An enormous job for me. at W. MCA doing three hours. Sports talk show. I was doing Morgan State. Football and Then I did the Knicks on their radio network. I was very busy pretty boy. Did I work and then a year or two later. MCA got the nets and islanders. And I did. That's not is not on well. I you know I'm I'm talking so much. I forgot your question. What was your question I I was I was really kinda curious to sort of how the sports thing Kinda got going right and obviously I made the talk? UGH Show in Baltimore a portion of sports They didn't like me doing it but that's what I wanted to do and so that led to a sports boards Rep and that led to MCA and from there on. And it's it's been all sports so okay. So how'd how'd you slide into then doing doing play by play stuff right because clearly the the skill set of hosting a talk show either generally or even around sports is very different than accurately accurately calling the action. Safe for the bullets in Baltimore in the early seventies or some of your first taste in New York when you were working with some of these franchises that that will touch upon before even the nets and the and the islander on how do you. How do you want to play by play thing going? Well one thing It's different rhythm. Yes but it's still communicating in the English language. And you know frankly you know I had that ability was inside of me. I've been doing it all my life just wasn't on the air and and so I'll tell you huge story and then this will kind of lead into it my I first alone play-by-play job never forget it. The biggest thrill of my life was a Sunday afternoon. Game with with the bullets and the Celtics in Boston at Carmelo's was doing a golf tournament so he got off the game and and I got the game and so it was I. I'm just telling you this nicely so I don't have to act like humble Howard It was easy. I mean it came to me me e easily. I mean I've been doing it all my life I've been listening I could do it anyway. gym gets home after his golf tournament wherever that was and and he went to his wife. Laurie now remember. I'm uncle John Their kids. I mean we're really close and so Naro says To Laurie how John Do and she said well I thought he did great. Well what did he sound like and she said. Wow only only it kinda sounded like you. And he's a well. That's not so bad and so I was away and I never thought of it after that I mean I I did it. I never forget that day waking up in the hotel and Boston getting myself together. Listen to music which I always do and going to the Boston Garden and doing the game and that was for me and Thank God it's been that way for I'M GONNA try to do this in my mind. Quickly it's been that way for you know almost fifty years. Well it's a gift right to know really what you want to do and be able to focus and Orient Yourself and have the confidence frankly to to step up and do it and I think that's arguably probably one of the reasons why you've been such an indelible voice with things like baseball certainly in the Yankees for so many years. It's just very curious to sort of hear. The various stories as of how people either luck into or find their way or determine their way through into into the booth yes very chop competitive business and it is not arithmetic. You Know One plus one plus one jump all over the place and I have been and Unbelievably fortunate you know. Starting then I got Morgan State before I love Baltimore the more. That's that's a predominantly black school in Baltimore and So I carry that with me to New York and all of a sudden. I'm I'm doing this talk show. I'm doing the The New York raiders of the W. H. A.. More on that later. Of course yes Doing the the Knicks on our radio network taking vacation days. Leave my show to do that. And then then the nets and islanders and the talk show and then the nets. It's A simulcast And one year with enterprise radio doing their lead talk show and the Washington bullets on TV. And one year later enterprise went down and financial flames and and I went to Atlanta Atlanta All Walk just the same guy hired all my friends and so I went down to Atlanta. Did a talk show for year. And the and the Hawks and then the Hawks and braves and then the Yankees and my goodness and this is my thirty first year. Where the Yanks? Now I I know you WanNa talk about teams that flamed out in the middle in the seventies I did the W. Nfl. I did it W. H. A.. I DID Games in the ABA. There were stopped right away from a contract dispute so I I paid my dues scratching around too. I got all these good jobs. I don't know any broadcaster. Frankly worth his his or her salt that that doesn't or has it right and I would argue even in that generation right. It's and it's still today right. It's a it's a not only is it a peripatetic calling but it's also one where multiple jobs bob is and continues to be kind of the the the rule to meet but keep your name and your voice and your your chops up to speed for for all the various opportunities that come and sometimes frankly go. Yeah it's a very odd different unique business without question all right well. Let's unpack a few things so when you went to W. MCA in New York. Right did you was the sports broadcasting beyond the talk talk show component of of MCA. was that already a known factor for you or was that just A. Hey I'm now in New York and I'm going to expand my wings beyond the Morgan State Gig every fault well MCA was The Most laissez-faire station I've ever worked at that won't happen again. uh-huh and I went to my program director Ken Fairchild and I said you know there's a new hockey team in town and I love to get him on the air. What do you think? And he said well. Why don't you go down there and make a deal? Can you imagine that you mentioned that happening today. I mean how ridiculous and so I went down on their to their offices across the street from the garden and this grungy hotel and I made a deal and we made a fifty fifty deal you know splitting ending up costs and And the monies from advertisers and That allowed me to do hockey. I wanted to do hockey and it was that simple. I mean it could never happen again today. And This was this was the raiders franchise of the World Hockey Association. Correct yes yes and They gave the franchise to people who didn't have the money which was dumb and I don't think it was two weeks into the season we're in Quebec Quebec and we got on the bus after the game. And the ER Director Guy Name Herb Elk Ah got on the bus and before we left he had a speech and the speech was we run out of money and the League has taken over the team. Everyone will get paid. which is all anyone cared about so Then in the second year people bought the team and took it away from New York and brought it down a a Cherry Hill and that was the end of my W. H. A. Hockey. But I if you said to me do you love doing it all my God. Did I love doing it. It was so so much fun and You know I'm building a sports right now. I'm doing football hockey. And the talk show in New York a mess three hour talk show every night night of the week and And it went from there to then. Then that's an islanders and oh excuse me that I was not just doing football and hockey. I was doing the Knicks on their radio network. Frank Messer was doing the game and then he'd leave early to go down to Florida and I picked up for him. So you know you. You couldn't do a lot more work than I did. And so that was the w j you want me to tell you about the WFL spell. Yeah sure before we get there though. It's ironic right because Having you know your taste with the with the raiders and I guess they were renamed the Golden Blades that next year and and and it had to be odd had though playing The the calling games in Madison Square Garden On maybe off days or or less less than desirable days at the Rangers and or the Knicks weren't Using right we. We did a lot of Sunday afternoons. And all I'll tell you why I love the W. H. A.. You're going to be down by five goals and come back and win. Usually anyone leagues begin. They they can't quite get the defense offense you can get and so I the Games were so much fun to do my God yeah. It's also ironic too because you wound up becoming The the voice for much of the nineteen seventy four the team arguably that came into being because of the W. H. as arrival the New York. Islanders Rela I want to say relatively hastily created franchise but obviously it was hastened or quickened into being being because of the W. H. as a rival and their desire to put a team in the New York Metro area Did that Blades experience have any direct relationship to you getting the islanders Gig or is that just because you had a whole lot of heat doing so many different things in the city. No I I what happened. Is The the Games went to MCA. They took the Games. And that's an island is package and so I started doing them because I was quote unquote the sports director. W MCA sports. I Director W MCA man. I ordered myself around and so so I did. That's an islanders until they split and I had to choose one of the the other Chosen as my best buddy. He was coaching the team Kevin Lottery. So it was very easy choice to make and Like that in the middle of all this did come the WFL yeah. Let's let's talk about that because I'm uncertain as to whether you call games for the New York Stars this out of Downing Stadium. They are Randall's island or Android the Charlotte Hornets or both both neither. I don't even know. Yeah well the first year I did did the the Games on W. MCI the reason. I'm mentioning this is essential wacky story. I did the games with an ex Jet Running back a great running back Matt Snell and We did the Games at Downing Stadium. Downing Stadium the lights lights were terrible Th they were lawyers obviously jammed. The teams didn't know they were and and someone at MCA had forgotten to put an a line to the first game. We did the opening game at Downing Stadium. The New York stars against somebody. Well I did it on the telephone and I passed the phone back and forth to Matt and he was fine. We did this game. We like made up the game stars. I called the one. They've been working on this all week. They asked the problems inside the five. At Jacksonville there as the fake by Sherman Bootleg By Comey German. The fake this going on German could learn. Who was the famous was Lou liquor in football? I mean that's down with doors at seven three all looking for in the runoff tackles land. You'll meet a good run backup ended ended on Defense Delina non off tackle Blaine adjutant. Sherman rolled out. He was not even want him back. Home here comes as the action for that. Was that sixty your star jiving six place at least seven three the actions Point when the two and a half chairman the glass does he got point and started ars waited eight to three cutting left on opening and lived through the action point. So there's a time out on appeal where the score the doors eight. The football and I didn't have much faith in the world. Football League continuing who's that My the right thing in the World League. Yeah and Now the next year so the stars vanished. They still owe me money. You want to hear. Yeah give somebody here of course One game they weren't doing on radio they won't do on TV and I did the game with a buddy of mine. Sal Marchiano was out in Portland and there's a great story. I'd forgotten about it. You AH triggered my mind. My weak little mind We fly out to Portland and we do the game and the game was GONNA go on Channel Nine after the mets game metro playing the cardinals at at Shea Stadium and so so when I left the building after the game. WE'RE GONNA go out and the Producer I guess I can't take it but I'm the guy but the producers said The payments an extra innings game hasn't gone yet. We laughed after about it. We thought it was kidding. First of all but we laughed about it. We went out now the next day. We're flying back to New York and we find out that AH last night. The mets game went twenty five innings. This against the cards the game never went on the air and they were going to show it the next night. So We flew back. It was a weird situation. We've broadcast a game. That wouldn't go on the air for another day and and blast crazy stories the W. H. A.. And and then if I remember correctly the team just quit. They just stopped the the stars from playing or maybe they move somewhere. This is near the end of the year. That crazy you well. I think it actually moves sort of near the end of the season. And I know that was like for example. The the I think the actual actual home game that followed that That Portland experience. I think well only played in front of like forty two hundred fans on a Tuesday night in September. So Oh I you know. I didn't see that game either so The next year. Stop for me to put this together. The next year Upton had team in Charlotte and he wanted me to do the Games. And of course I wanted to do them so I'd have to fly out to do the Games and then and we. We did a game in southern California at The Anaheim Stadium the Angel Stadium and We weren't gonNA go on. They were going to go on to Hawaii right. So funny and a League ended Bang Boom Goodbye and that ended that league so And you know I didn't tell you this in the late sixties or seventy I agree to do play by play for the Washington team in the ABA and is doing the game. Rick Barry was injured so he did the color. We've been friends ever since we friends a longtime tennis partners etc etc and But they didn't make a deal. Ah The the team didn't make a deal with the TV station because they were going to move to Virginia which they did this is the Washington and so yeah and so I did. A couple of games loved it. Oh I loved it and it was taken away from me. That's it not be contract. No more games so you know the The the thing you can take out of this is as I say. It's not our phonetic. You know you go from here to there down in out and And you hope if you finally land somewhere and I I have because I in the seventies I was in New York in the eighties I was in Atlanta. And there's going to be my thirty I I e yeah so it'd be. You said to me John. Do you think you're very fortunate. Boy Do I think I'm fortunate. I've had nothing but great jobs for like thirty five years so I I very very fortunate all right time for me to catch my breath.

Let's also talk about the nets that's right because the nets interesting crazy story line and arguably still crazy in in some respects given you know they're they're now tendency in Brooklyn Brooklyn but you you were so MCA. The Nets. Were still very much in the American Basketball Association right so this was still long long island right in the Nassau Coliseum but so give me give me a sense of sort of the Aba. In your mind's eye the ABA was like family we We played Friday Saturday and Sunday. For the most part There was no in the Coliseum to see the Great Julius Irving the the the when I was there the the nets won two out of three Aba Championships the last year the Aba Championship last year the Aba and they we went into the NBA and We didn't have any money at all Roy. Bo was At both teams and was jockeying back and forth. I know the island in the last year we kept changing hotels. All the time. Joel old paying their bills But it was a great joy was like family and the Aba had been told you know like some horrible Arbel parents due to their kids. That you're fat you're lazy you're stupid and you get the told enough for you start to believe it and the Aba never believed ah how great they were The players the minute that the league ended and the four teams went into the the NBA. The players are all stars phenomenal players. The coaches were phenomenal. Kevin Locker in Huby Brown and Albie Anki Hanky and Larry Brown I mean it was a great league. It didn't know it because I've been told by the NBA that sucked but It didn't and the proof is in the pudding when the ABA merged with the NBA and as far as the island is concerned. Ah They were success. Every year I was there they made a Lisa semi's and Then I had to choose between the two but I'll tell hey a cute story my final year with the islanders. We've finally finished first in the East beating Philadelphia and we had a tremendous party in Boston. Offshore which is the side of the vinyl regular season game and the party went on and on and when it was closing time and the cops came in they they close the door and they party and I went over to build for the late bill. Torrey terrific guy and I said to him and they bill. I said what what. What chance does this party have been paid? And he said Oh about fifty fifty uh-huh so and then they were terrific days where it was very different. Broadcasters were much closer to the team and the players and they are now. They're they're being held off. You know by whatever and But then you were really part of it and it was great gun and Some of my experiences. Well when you call on those games for those gutty Gritty New Jersey Nets I remember the the bones of you calling those games with Mike. Tomaso Moscow vividly. So did you. Were you certain during those. Aba Days or how confident did you feel that this would be one of the teams teams that would make the leap into the NBA. And then how about the whole New Jersey sort of think that you know the old rutgers athletic center and the new arena and all that kind of stuff it seems like like there was still a lot of uncertainty even if even they were able to make the jump into the NBA signs. Julius Irving while you certainly the the old old proverbial nail on the proverbial head I I don't personally as a human being Very optimistic and I am really Oscar. Hammerstein's cockeyed optimist. So I never really worried about the future you know. Give me the games this year. We'll see what happens We I thought the I would go in and But they ruin themselves they. It was a three million dollar price to get into the NBA and and Roy didn't have it and he sold Julius erving and got the money but then and then tiny archibald did. Come over over in a deal in the offseason Brian Taylor left and John Williamson left and all and Tiny ah the insurers Achilles so now they're without Dr J. N. Tiny Archibald and you know they had an awful team and We played one year. You're in the Coliseum and then we went to Jersey to the rack as you say waiting to get into the new building and we never made it and Hype forget where we are here see. I was moving along Had One year that I love beyond any others was at enterprise like a hundred young guys and gals and we just They they were too. They tried to I do too much. They did to five minutes sportscaster. WHOSE GONNA take a five minute sports gas from enterprise and But we we had the talk talk thing went okay anyway. They didn't have any money either and and they they they. They ran out of money by the summer. We began January first Take for those because this is the this is the the the white hot comet that was for. Maybe ten months the Enterprise Radio Network at work which maybe you want to explain actually does have a little bit of a tie in to the original. ESPN right because this was Museum and friends right who who arguably helped start the sports radio. Kind of Genre that we know today really yeah. They helped start. ESPN the rice. Muslims and then they went to the satellite based network in Avon Connecticut. We have beautiful studios beautiful everything thing. They just ran out of money. And so we kid and called it You knows enterprise radio the sports network so we made it. Enterprise Radio broke network. Let's talk about Sports Sports of yesterday now days to come all sorts of sports for all kinds into listeners. Enterprise Radio Sports Network has plenty of talk ninety hours. A week with well-known hosts celebrity guests. You can't converse about this and that AH simply calling it eight hundred toll free number yet your share of sports talk. Uh if you WANNA know about I'm going to give you this story. Only emphasize how dumb fortune figures. Here's into all this. A guy named Bob Wessler became president of CBS. In the seventies and sooner or later you know all presidents get fired so he got fired and he landed a great job. Ted Turner was just beginning with all of his networks in Atlanta and he needed a pro. Andy Hired Bob. Wessler and Bob Heussler decided to bring in people and he brought in Kevin Loughrea coach the basketball team he brought in Joe Torry sorry to manage the baseball team and my best friend my best best best. She's passed away Mike Faraday landed. The job is general. Oh manager of WSB AM FM sleeping giant. That thousand watts clear channel and so an enterprise went down. Ferry wanted may come down and do a sports talk show but I wasn't GonNa go play by play. And so what sort of got involved and he made Ted Turner take me due to do basketball. You know second man to skip carry and That's why I wanted to Atlanta. And then ah I'm doing most of the Hawk Games and and then next year. Skip just quit. The hawks just stay with the braves he had a young kid and and so. I'm now doing the Hawks and the braves I leave my talk show at Sp.. And I carry that up to the Yankees. Can you imagine. Imagine but it's very interesting so let me give me a sense though of before we get into I guess we'll around third base here against the Yankees story but so of the sports that you're doing and you're you're doing everything right. It seems like you're doing. You're doing talk and you're doing lead INS or doing play by play. Hey I suspect you're doing a little Even analysis depending on if you're running the show Solo. I'm you're kind of. You're you're basically Jack of all when it comes to broadcasting games etcetera Is there any sport or team that you liked doing more than than others were like. When did when did you know that baseball would be you? Were sort of ultimate future capstone or or did not care what game what team and what league you were sort of doing your thing. Oh no no. I don't know I wanted to do baseball. I had done a few games but only a few and When I got the Atlanta job the next year ruined? Oh and say you're going to be doing the braves and I didn't count on until it happened but it happened in eighty three and I always wanted to do baseball. I mean man that's quote unquote the Big Radio Sport and To when I finally got it I was in seventh heaven. But if you say to me wish did you you like better. I like them all. Don't have that problem. I really don't have that problem you know in basketball. Then it's different now in basketball. Then you are doing doing radio. You were right next to the bench part of the team and Mike for Cello so great to me. He said He Tell People John's like one of the staff. Because because you're you're traveling together you're you're you're sitting together. You could hear everything going on all the stuff going on this stuff and and Now they take radio and they put it up in the in the balcony and they're not even part of the game but then you were very much part of it so You know you can't do everything so I was doing when I got you Atlanta then. I was doing baseball and basketball and I I've had. I should knock on wood here. I've got unusually good health. I HAVEN'T MISSED A game at thirty eight years and Atlanta. There were five years I was doing about two hundred and Twenty Games a year between baseball basketball. Now I've missed the game but the aunts and the thirty years so I've been very fortunate but I it wasn't like I like doing the game. You're doing the game. You know this year They they gave me a little tossed a little rose my way and and and they I I did a A nets game on TV. And it was like I had done it. I hadn't stopped because that's part of me is inside of me and It was it was. I look at some point. I haven't done an eye on. I haven't done islanders gay but anyway I'm just saying it was very easy for me and and it was a lot of fun and once the game begins. Boy I do it. I may not like the packing and unpacking. I I may not like with the Yankees. We don't get Getaway Day Games So we get into cities at four in the morning uh-huh and you're whipped in it screws up your system but as far as the game is concerned once the game starts once I start talking I love it and I have a partner and Susan Waldman who loves as much as I do your pores everything into it and You know we have a very nice We have a very nice family with Jack. Maldonado our producer engineer and grouch. Who Does all the the backup for us and You know I'm I'm very fortunate. Certain sport that you haven't done that you wish you might have wanted to to try. Were that you also think you could have done well. And especially given the seventies and the eighties right which certainly the seventies was almost a wellspring of Challenger Leagues Leagues and doesn't seem to be any shortage of folks who want to create new sports or new leagues. But is there anything that you that eluded you that you might want to have done or tried or banana. I I don't think so. You know I I play basketball my life and And then I ripped up on me and I couldn't play anymore. It just didn't come back and so then. I went full time at a tennis so I guess I could have broadcast Tennyson Tennyson some way but that's not a really exciting play by play. I think I've chosen the right sports. I have no interest in boxing. No interest in golf no interest it and horse racing So I couldn't have done those sports 'cause I didn't know them no interest in soccer so I believe I you know I told Michael. Kay My Buddy Michael K on his centerstage program that I've had as companions through my life and I mean from the time I was. You know when you start remembering things seven eight you know I've had sports and music as companions and I'm involved with sports and music every single day of my life so You know really extremely fortunate. You know I have this ability I focus on the things I like and I totally ignore the things I don't like so so You know I've I've been able to combine my avocation and location and it's worked out all right so let's ask me one sort of foundational the sort of ending ending question here. Maybe you can maybe wax nostalgic or prophetic on it What you you know? You've obviously spent a lifetime in in in sports broadcasting and and and some of the most major and high profile purchase purchase out there. What is so? How would you describe the profession fashioned today through that Lens of forty plus years or so maybe better worse things that you maybe wish hadn't changed and maybe the things that have changed for the better? I know it's kind of an open ended question but you know you've got a nice longitudinal viewpoint from some of the I quote unquote good old days to. Maybe even today's good old days I I've really curious you mentioned that I mentioned it and I hope I can Put it into some kind of thought that people will latch onto In the seventies and eighties. This has got to be very tough in the seventies Sixties and seventies Baltimore anymore. Everybody knew everybody everyone who did something. All the athletes all the broadcast is all the writers over making the same money. But it really in the sixties more and it was like Everyone was part of it. You played basketball together. You Played Golf Golf together. You play tennis together You were in the same restaurants et Cetera et anyway and the seventies I think too and and the eighties I think the broadcast was much closer to his teams But as far as the difference in broadcasting. There's no difference judge. It's all communicating in your language to your listeners. And so in that way I to me. Nothing has changed. If you said to me John You you've done the Yankees thirty years. You mean nothing has changed. Well it's changed in that when when Tory you a Berkshire Walter got very close to Susan and Michael Myself and and it's still that way and then a real buddy bovine came in to manage the Yankees Joe Torry Joe Torry basically took me out to dinner or not on the road for twelve years so that was different and so that part's different but as far as broadcasting broadcasting is broadcasting communicating and this the English language to your to your list this news. I don't think that changes at all our. This'll be my last question that I promise so. I'm wondering to you know we were recording this episode The the The day of the launch of yet another New Professional Football League the Association of the Alliance of American football the XFL is coming back. Ah In a new version next year and there doesn't seem to be any shortage of new teams coming in to Establish Leagues like the Vegas Golden Knights and the new Seattle Franchise is in the NHL. And I'm really curious to hear your thoughts about pro sports and are we you know. I'm wondering if I if we're if if this is going to continue to grow and get bigger and bigger money and more teams and franchises or are we may be getting a little. I don't know a little peek shall we we say at In in what maybe The the business of sports can can deliver to the to. The audience is out there. I you know a television and communications education being quite different today. The I'm wondering in your opinion if if were nearing an a a peak of pro sports saturation. or or maybe we're still got many many ways many years in and opportunities to go Given where we've come from well it has so much to do with television version These new little leagues. They're only biggest television as far as baseball basketball football hockey. They're all here the big uglies. They're all here to stay They're GONNA do nothing but get bigger and better. The crowds are bigger and better and I the the football league. I don't think they'll amount that much but they'll stay as long as there's TV a matter of fact you can say that about the Big Sports George to the big leagues. They'll only stay there if they retain their their ratings. You know when when the ratings stop that goes off. TV TV so but they it's so embedded you know what I've got a huge kick out of One year the Yankees didn't make the playoffs and I watched the playoff games all on TV and not only with a place is jammed and the people screaming from the first pitch to the last but actually hear it through TV and you can hear crowd through TV radios different. That's all you hear but I thought it was sensational sensational and And no matter how much it gets knocked and it does of course in the media It doesn't really matter the fans love it. They love the idea of being part of it. It brings cities together and and I I don't see any problems now. You know if once I'm long gone you know fifty years about how do I know it was going to happen. But right right now They have no problems. Oh they write about the problems. But as long as the fans are connected to the franchise you Eddie. Einhorn was a great leader in sports television. He's passed on and he was co owner of the White Sox with with his buddy Jerry Jerry Reinsdorf and anyone's told me they said the he's at the fans on the team he's we're just the caretakers it's the face of fans game and it is without fans. They would still play the different sports but they'd have to lug their equipment you know into Central Park and and play the ball game But this way if anyone ever thought it could be just telling Susan that That Anthony Davis that's when he turned down the New Orleans. Pelicans contract the Max contract. Get Max contract was it was forty eight million a year for for five years. I would say unbelievable. Yes and they're not spending it. They're not making it so they're making it and You know I'm I'm not giving you a very good answer but sports the the NBA NHL MLB and the NFL are here to stay. The fans love it. They've a great connection and emotional connection. And you see it when the the standard jammed zero zero degrees in Kansas City there so you know you have to work through. Problems always really problems of everything in life but but for the foreseeable future. They're only going to get bigger and better. Well John I look I appreciate this. This is I certainly appreciate your letting us drag argue into some of your earliest stops whether you care to remember them or not You know I remember. I everyone remembers everything and their our lives. Of course I remember the men and like them. I I love those w. Ha Games in the garden before five thousand people I love the Games aims at downing. Stadium is a relic. They shouldn't have played their so it's all fun I T- I take it down all fun. Yeah tougher ways to make a living right and when you're having in the zone and you know what you WanNa do which you obviously knew at a very early age it shows and I think your longevity and the pinnacle you know obviously being the Yankees broadcaster for such a long period of time is proof of that and look I thank you for taking a few minutes to lead US drag you back into the past and and celebrate your Your current and hopefully longtime future with your current Geico the with the Yankees Mazal Tov. Well I appreciate it I also hope it's long time I get my kids in college. I and then we'll see but anyway thank you so much I appreciate it.

101: New York Yankees Broadcaster John Sterling

"Good evening, everyone. I'm John sterling in. Boy, we have things to talk about. Welcome to good seats. Still available a curious little bot- cast devoted to exploring. What used to be in professional sports? Here's your host, Tim Hanlin. You bet we got stuff to talk about. How are you everybody? My name is Tim Hamlin and you have stumbled across again, good seats. Still available are curious little podcast that is devoted to what used to be in professional sports. And that voice that you heard is early days of somebody who's now, obviously, quite legendary in New York sports broadcasting circles, his name is John sterling, and you know, him for his dulcet tones calling for many years. I think since nineteen eighty nine if that's not mistaken New York Yankees broadcasts, and that little clip that you heard though was from some of the days prior to what we now know the future hall of fame broadcaster and his his Yankee days still going strong, by the way as the season gets ready to get underway. And we wish him in the eighties. Well, of course, but before all that Yankee greatness started John. Sterling was a well known fixture in New York City, sports and talk radio, and that little clip that you heard the beginning. Here was from October nineteenth nineteen seventy seven on W MCA radio AM, five seventy sorry on your AM. Dial and John hosted probably I think maybe one of the true, I sports talk. Call in shows, not only in New York, but I think in the nation, and that was actually the the night after the historic New York Yankees World Series victory. That was the the night after that big game when Reggie Jackson three home runs and an amazing time in New York City's sports history, New York City general history, write a tough year, nineteen seventy seven with the blackouts and son osaman all that kind of stuff, but the South Bronx, basically ablaze, but boy, oh, boy what what memories that brings back. But we're gonna talk to John. John not only about some of those w MCA days. But also some of the early sports exploits that that we're interested in this particular show bet you didn't know that John was the first voice. And frankly, the the guy who brought the the team to the air of the old WHAT world hockey, sociation, New York, golden blades. Yeah. They those games were on W MCA radio. And that was John sterling doing we get into some of that we talk about some of his days being the the play by play announcer for both the New York. Islanders of the National Hockey League. Very interesting story there because without the W H A forming. I don't think the islanders even would have been formed themselves. So an interesting little circle of history there. But of course, the ABA New York nets John sterling was the announcer for for many of those games with his Cutler color analyst, Mike detail Moscow. There's an infant past also into. Their transition into the NBA is the New Jersey Nets the gutty gritty, New Jersey Nets. And we get into them with memories of folks. Like vk Jan van predator, cough, and Bernard sky, BB king and remember all those all those great games. And we also lest we forget to John was also the voice of the wait for it world football league, New York stars play to the old downing stadium in Randall's island to crowds of hundreds if that and that we get into some of that with John a little bit of the transition into the Charlotte relocation of that franchise in the middle of the season, something we talked about with our guest previous guests Upton bell who bought that franchise and moved them to Charlotte.

And we appreciate your checking them out. We also appreciate you checking out this just fun and a mazing conversation with the one the only the inevitable, New York Yankees broadcaster extraordinaire future hall of Famer if he asked me and many others, here's John sterling. I think everybody on the planet knows you, obviously as the longtime voice of the New York Yankees. But I'm not sure most of America or baseball fans out there. No, you from your earlier days, cutting your teeth, shall we say with some forgotten teams, but ones that we like to kind of kind of delve into and I'm wondering maybe before we sort of get into some of those first stops. Maybe you could regale our audience with a little bit of how you even got into broadcasting in the in the first place. Well, I'm very very fortunate. Believe me, I have four kids and I worry about them. What are they going to do after college? They're all about ready to matriculate and men college. When I was I know it's tough to believe this. I swear to God, it's true. When I was like nine or ten or eleven I knew I was going to be a broadcaster. I knew I was going on the air. So I never had to worry about what I was going to do and I slept my way through high school and a little bit of college. And when I finally. I I was I had a great boost I was going to Columbia general studies, and they had a class at NBC given by the w NBC program director now, I had this inside of me, this is broadcasting intrinsic reme-. And so when I went to this class it was given at the studios w NBC given by the NBC program director. Two and a half hour class one night a week and. I'm gonna try to say this nice. 'cause it sounds terrible. But you know, I I was Michael Jordan in that class. I mean, this is what I was going to do for a living, and I had been doing it in my head all these years listening to every this Jackie and every newscaster every sportscaster, and the guy gave me an ape, plus and the only ever gotten school and. And my kids get great report cars, and I did not. And I he said you're good enough to go out. How do you go? Will you make up a tape? Oh, what do you put on the tape? And I finally got a job in a small station, upstate New York. And I've been on the air since thank God. How did you get into sports in particular? Right. So the radio thing that this jockey thing getting on the air. But but what what kind of got you into sports, and I guess your first real sports gig was with the Baltimore bullets right back in nineteen seventy seventy one. Right. Well, what happened is I had landed a big time talk show at Metromedia and Baltimore, and then it sprung out a couple years later in to a an hour. Talk on WBZ TV, and I did the same show that Oprah did later on. She did a little more with it. I might add. And but anyway, on my was doing three hour radio show and one hour TV show, and I putting sports on it because that's what I love. And so I got to be very close buddies. You know, John this kids would Jim cargo who's a great broadcast doing the bullets. And and then, you know, Finally, I started get a sports Rupp. And Jim and I did cold games before the end of the season because they didn't want to take the baseball guys off baseball. Look good for them to football. And then I started filling in when Jim would go away on basketball, and it led to at enormous job for me dubbed. MCA doing three hour. Sports talk show. I was doing Morgan stay football. And then I did the Knicks on their radio network was very busy. But it I work and then year or two later MCA God the nets in Ireland is and I did the nets now is not on. I, you know, I'm talking so much forgot your question. What was your question? I was really kinda curious to sort of how the sports thing kind of got going, right? And obviously, I made the talk show in Baltimore a portion of sports, they didn't like me doing it. But that's what I wanted to do. And so that led to sports rep and that led to MCA and from there on, and it's it's been all sports. So okay. So how'd how'd you slide into then doing play by play stuff? Right. Because clearly the the skill set of hosting talkshow either. Generally or even around sports right is very different than accurately. Calling the action say for the bullets in Baltimore in the early seventies. Or some of your first taste in New York when you were working with some of these franchises that will touch upon before even the nets and the and the island on how do you how do you play by play thing going? Well, one thing it's different rhythm. Yes. But it's still communicating and the English. Language, and you know, frankly, I had that ability was inside of me I've been doing it all my life just wasn't on the air. And and so I'll tell you story, and then this will kind of lead into it. My first alone play-by-play job, forget it. The biggest thrill of my life was a Sunday afternoon game with the bullets in the Celtics in Boston and Carmelo's was doing golf tournament. So he got off the game. And I got the game and. It was I I'm just telling this nicely. So I don't have to act like humble Howard. It was easy. I mean it came easily. I mean, I've been doing it all my life. I've been listening. I do it. Anyway, gym gets home after his golf tournament. Wherever that was. And he went to his wife Laurie. Now, remember Mongol John their kids. I mean, we're really close and so- Carello says to Laurie. Well, how did John do? And she said, well, I thought he did great. Well, what did he sound like and she said, well, he he kinda sounded like you. And he's well, that's not so bad. And so I was away. I never thought of it. After that. I mean, I did it. I'm never forget that day waking up in the hotel and Boston getting myself together listening to music, which I always do and going to the Boston Garden and doing the game. And that was for me. And thank God. It's been that way for. I'm gonna try to do this in my mind quickly. It's been that way for you know, almost fifty years. Well, it's a gift right to to know, really what you want to do and be able to focus and orients yourself and have the confidence frankly to step up and do it. And I think that's arguably one of the reasons why you've been such an indelible voice with things like baseball, certainly in the Yankees her so many years, it's just very curious to sort of hear the various stories of how people either luck into or find their way or determine their way through into into the right? Both. It's very tough competitive business. And it is not arithmetic, you know, one plus one plus one jump all over the place. And I have been unbelievably fortunate, you know, starting then. I got Morgan state before I love Baltimore. That's that's a predominantly black school in Baltimore. And so I carry that with me to New York and all of a sudden doing this talk show, I'm doing the the New York raiders of the W H A more on that later. Yes. Doing the the Knicks on their radio network taking bake Asian days, leave my show to do that. And then then the nets islanders and the chalk show, and then the nets as a simulcast and one year with enterprise radio doing their lead talk show and the Washington Bullets on TV and one year later enterprise went down and financial flames and. And I went to Atlanta. All walk just. The same guy hired all my friends. And so I went down to Atlanta did a talk show for year and the and the hawks and then the hawks and Braves and then the Yankees and my goodness. And this is my thirty first year with the Yanks now. I know you wanna talk about teams that flamed out in the middle in the seventies. I did the w. F L. I did a W H A. I did games in the ABA. There was stopped right away from contractors viewed. So I, you know, kinda paid my dues scratching around to got all these good jobs. I don't know any broadcaster frankly worth his his or herself that that doesn't or hasn't. Right. And I would argue even in that generation, right? It's still today. Right. It's it's not only is it a pair of pathetic calling. But it's also one where multiple jobs is and continues to be kind of the the rule right to meet. But to keep your name, and your voice, and your your Trump's up to speed for for all the various opportunities that come and sometimes frankly, go. Yeah. It's a very odd different unique business without question. All right. Well, let's unpack a few things. So when you went to W MCI in New York, right? Did you was the sports broadcast? Getting beyond the talk show component of of MCA was that already a known factor for you. Or was that just a ham now in New York, and I'm going to expand my wings beyond the Morgan state gig. Every fall. Well, MCA was the most laissez faire station I've ever worked that won't happen again. And I went to my program director guiding Ken Fairchild, and I said, you know, there's a new hockey team in town and love to get him on the air. What do you think? And he said, well, why don't you go down there and make a deal? Can you imagine that you mentioned that happening today? I mean, how ridiculous. And so I went down there to their offices across the street from the garden, and this grungy hotel, and I made a deal, and we made a fifty fifty deal, you know, splitting up costs, and and the monies from advertisers. And that allowed me to do hockey. I wanted to do hockey, and it was that simple. It could never happen again today. And and this was this was the raiders franchise of the world hockey socio, correct? Yes. And they gave the franchise people that didn't have the money, which was dumb and it. I don't think it was two weeks into the season. We're in Quebec callback. And we got on the bus after the game. And the ER director guy name herb, elk. Got on the bus, and before we left he had a speech and the speech was. We run out of money and the league is taken over the team everyone will get paid which is all anyone cared about. So then in the second year people bought the team and took it away from New York and brought it down a cherry hill. And that was the end of my W H, A hockey. But I if you said to me, do you love doing it? Oh, my God that I love doing it. It was so much fun. And you know, I'm building sports right now, I'm doing football hockey and the talk show in New York mess three hour talk show every night of the week. And and it went from there to them, and that's an islanders and oh, excuse me. I was not just doing football. And I got the Knicks on their radio network. Frank Messer was doing the game. And then he'd leave early to go down to Florida and I picked up for him. So, you know, you couldn't do a lot more work than I did. And so that was a w h j you want me to tell you about the WFL. Yeah. Sure. Before we get there, though. It's ironic, right. Because having you know, your taste with the with the raiders, and I guess they were renamed the golden blades that next year. And and and it had to be odd though, playing the calling games in Imasen Square Garden on maybe off days, or or let's say less than desirable days that the Rangers and the Knicks weren't using. Right. We we did a lot of Sunday afternoons, and all I'll tell you. Why? I love the W H A you're to be down by five goals and come back and win. Usually when leagues begin they they can't quite get the defense offense, you can get. And so I the games were so much fun to do my God. Yeah. It's also ironic too because you wound up becoming the the voice for much of the nineteen seventies. Four the team arguably that came into being because of the WHAT. Arrival the New York Islanders, right? I think it was a rela I wanna say relatively hastily created franchise. But obviously it was hastened or quickened into being because of the W H as a rival and their desire to put a team in the New York metro area. Did that blades? Experience have any direct relationship to you getting the islanders gig? Or is that just because you had a whole lot of heat doing so many different things in the city. No, I what happened is the the games went to MCA. They took the games, and that's an island is a package. And so I started doing them because I was quote, unquote. The sports director w MCA sports director w MCA men, I ordered myself around. And so so I did the nets an island until they split, and I had a choose one of the other Joes. And that's my best buddy was coaching the team Kevin locker. So it was very easy choice to make. And like in the middle of all this did come the WFL. Yeah. Let's let's talk about that. Because I I'm on certain as to whether you called games for the New York stars out downing stadium. They are Randall's island or Android the Charlotte Hornets or both neither I don't even know. Yeah. Well, the first year I did the the games on W MCI. The reason I mentioning this essential wacky story. I did the games with an x jet running back. Great jet running back Matt Snell, and we did the games at downing stadium downing stadium. The lights were terrible. They were play layers obviously jammed the teams get in. No, they were. And someone of MCA forgotten to put in a line to the first game. We did though opening game downing stadium. The New York stars against somebody. Well, I did it on the telephone. And I passed the phone back and forth to Matt. And he was fine. And we did this game. We like made up a game. Ersan goal the one they've been working on this all week. They ask them problems inside the five as Jacksonville. There is the thing my bootleg. Bulwark by Comey German the richest going German learn. When looking who is famous bootlegger input bull? I mean numbers kind of that seven three. I think all looking for them to run all tax. You'll make a good run backup driving. Got difference Delina in and they think that complain to him in human role at all not even the one magazine home. All right here comes the action for the six ers store job and six place at least seven three the point when the two and a half sherman's gives does doesn't point. The way today to three Joe cutting left on opening and withdrew the action point. Time out of where the score the store Irving and three more stores football and just sixty seconds. I didn't have much faith in the world football league. Continuing who's it? My the right thing in the world league. Yeah. And now the next year. So the stars vanished. They still owe me money. Don't hold on. You wanna hear? Yeah. That's up on a here. Of course. One game. They weren't doing radio. They do TV and I did the game with a buddy of mine. Sal Marchiano was out in Portland and the great story. I'd forgotten about it. You just triggered my mind. My weak little mind, we fly out to Portland and we do the game. And the game was going to go on channel nine after the Mets game playing the cardinals at at say stadium. And so when Sallai I left the building after the game, we're gonna go out and the producer. I guess I can't take it that aim of the guy. But the producers said the the meant payments an extra innings game hasn't gone yet. We laughed about it. We thought it was kidding. First of all, but we laughed about it. We went out next. They were flying back to New York. And we find out that last night. The Mets game when twenty five innings against the cards the game. They went on the air, and they were going to show it the next night. So we flew back. It was the weirdest situation. We broadcast a game that wouldn't go on the air for another day. And. Crazy stories of the W H A. And then if I remember correctly the team just quit, they just stop the the stars from playing or maybe they move somewhere. This is near the end of the year that crazy I think it actually moves sort of near the end of the season actually kinda. 'cause I know that was like, for example, the the I think the actual home game that followed that that Portland experience. I think only played in front of like forty two hundred fans on Tuesday night in September. So, you know. People didn't see that game either. So the next year step for me to put this together. The next year Upton had a team in Charlotte. And he wanted me to do the games. And of course, I wanted to do them. So I'd have to fly out to do the games. And then we did a game in southern California at the Anaheim stadium the angel stadium. And we weren't gonna go on they were going to go on to Hawaii. So funny and the league ended bang, boom goodbye and that ended that league. So and I didn't tell you this in the late sixties or seventy I agree to do play by play for the Washington team in the ABA. And doing the game. Barry was injured. So he did the color. We've been friends over says, we've been friends a longtime tennis partners at cetera et cetera. And but they didn't make a deal. The team didn't make a deal with this TV station because they were gonna move to Virginia, which they did this is the Washington. So. Yeah. And so I did a couple of games loved it. Oh, I loved it. And it was taken away from me. That's it not be on-track. No, more games. So, you know. The thing you can take out of this is. As I say, it's not air phonetic. You know, you go from here to there off down in out. And and you hope you finally land somewhere, and I I have because. In the seventies. I was in New York in the eighties. I was in Atlanta. And there's gonna be my thirty first year with the act. So if you said to me, John, do you think you're very fortunate? Boy, do I think of fortunate I've had nothing but great jobs for like fifty five years. So I'm very very fortunate. All right time for me to catch my breath.

Let's also talk about the nets right because the nets their own sort of interesting crazy story line and arguably still crazy in some respects, given, you know, they're they're they're now Tennessee in in Brooklyn. But you you were so an MCA. The nets were still very much in the American Basketball Association. Right. So this was still Long Island right in Nassau Coliseum. But so give me give me a sense of sort of the ABA in your mind's eye. The was like family we played Friday Saturday and Sunday for the most for there was no one on the Coliseum to see the great Julius Irving, the the, but I was there the the nets won two out of three ABA championships last year the championship last year, the ABA, and they we went into the NBA, and we didn't have any money at all ROY bowl was I both teams and was jockeying back and forth. I know the island is in the last year. We kept changing tells all the time Joel paying their bills. But it was a great joy, it was like family, and the ABA had been told, you know, like some horrible parents due to their kids that you're fat. You're lazy you're stupid. And you get told enough for you start to believe it and the APA never believed. How great they were the players the minute that the league ended and the four teams went into the NBA the players all our all stars. But I'm oh players. The coaches were phenomenal Kevin locker and UB Brown and now being key and Larry Brown. I mean, it was a great league. It didn't know it because have been told by the NBA that sucked. But it didn't. And the proves in the pudding when the ABA merged with the NBA and as far as the islanders is -cerned. They were success every year. I was there. They made a Lisa semi's and. Then I had a twos between the two, but I'll tell you a story my final year with the islanders. We've finally finished first in the east beating Philadelphia, and we had a tremendous party in Boston, which is the side of the vinyl regular season game and the party went on and on and when it was closing time and the cops came in they close the door, and they partied. And I went over to Bill tore the late Bill Torey terrific guy. And I said to him. They bill. I said what what what chance does this party have of being paid? And he said oh about fifty fifty. So and then they were terrific days. It was very different broadcast is much closer to the team and the players, and they are now they're being held off, you know, by whatever. And but then you were really part of it. And it was great gun and. So my experiences. Well, call on those games for those gutty gritty, New Jersey Nets. I remember the the bones of you calling those games with Mike de Tomaso vividly. So. Did you were you certain during those ABA days or how confident did you feel that this would be one of the teams that would make the leap into the NBA? And then how about the whole New Jersey sort of thing because that, you know, the Rutgers athletics center and the new arena and all that kind of stuff. It seems like there was still a lot of uncertainty. Even if even they were able to make the jump into the NBA San's one Julius Irving while you certainly be the old proverbial nail on the verbal head. I don't personally as a human being very optimistic, and I am really Oscar Hammerstein's cockeyed optimist. So I never really worried about the future. You know, give me the games this year. Then we'll see what happens we I thought the nets would go in and but they ruin them. So they it was a three million dollar price to get into the NBA and ROY. Oy voted and have it, and he sold Julius Erving and got the money. But then the and then trying to Archibald did come over in a deal in the offseason. Brian Taylor left and John Williamson left and all and. Johnny then tours Killys. So now, they're without Dr J N tiny Archibald, and you know, that an awful team and we played one year in the Coliseum, and then we went to jersey to the rack as you say waiting to get into the new building. And we never made it and hyper get where where we are here. See I was moving along. I had one year that I love beyond any others at enterprise, we had like a hundred young guys and gals and we just. They they were too. They tried to do too much. They did to five minutes sports guys, who's gonna take a five minute sports gas from enterprise, and but we we had the talk. The talk thing went, okay. Anyway, they didn't have any money either. And and they they they. They ran out of money by the summer. We began January first. For those end. But because this is the this is the a the white hot comet that was for maybe ten months, the enterprise radio network, which maybe want to explain actually does have a little bit of a tie into the original ESPN, right? Because this was. Muezzin and friends, right? Who arguably helped start the sports radio kind of genre? That we know today, really. Yeah. They help started SPN the Rasmussens. And then they went to the satellite based network in Avon, Connecticut, we have beautiful studios. Beautiful everything they just run out of money. And so we could in called it. You know, it was enterprise radio the sports network. So we made it enterprise radio the broke network. Let's talk about sports sports of yesterday. Now days to come all sorts of sports are all kinds of listeners enterprise radio. Sports network has plenty of talk ninety one hours a week with well known hosts and celebrity guests, you can't converse about this. And that by simply calling eight hundred toll free number yet. Your share of sports talk. If you wanna know about I'm going to give you this story only to emphasize how. Dom fortune figures into all this. A guy named Bob Wessler became president of CBS in the seventies. And sooner or later, you know, all presidents get fired. And so he got fired. And he landed a great job. Ted Turner was just beginning with all of his networks in Atlanta. And he needed a pro and the hired Bob Wessler and Bob Wessler. Decided to bring in people and he brought in Kevin Locke Rita coach the basketball team. He brought in Joe Tori to manage the baseball team, and my best friend my best best best. He's passed away. Mike Faraday landed the job is general manager of WSB AM and FM sleeping giant that thousand watts clear channel. And so when enterprise went down fatty wanted me to come down and do a sports talk show. But I wasn't gonna go play by play. And so what sort of got involved, and he made Ted Turner, take me due to do basketball. You know, second man to skip carry, and that's why I went to Atlanta. And then I'm doing most of the hawk games, and and then next year skip just quit. The hawks just stay with the Braves he had a young kid. And and so I'm now doing the hawks and the Braves I leave my talk show it as be and I carry that up to the Yankees. Can you imagine very interesting? So let me give me a sense, though, of before we get to I guess we'll serve around third base here. It gets the Yankee story. But how so of the sports that you're doing and you're you're doing everything, right? It seems like you're doing doing talk and you're doing lead ins or doing play by play. I suspect you're doing a little even analogy. Depending on if you're running the show solo. I mean, you're kind of you're you're basically a Jack of when it comes to broadcasting games excetera. Is there any sport or team that you liked doing more than than others were like when did you? When did you know that baseball would be your sort of ultimate, you know, future capstone or or did you not care what game and what team? And what league you were sort of doing your thing? I don't know. I don't know. I wanted to do baseball. I had done a few games, but only a few. And when I got the Atlanta job the next year. Everyone said you're going to be doing the Braves, and I didn't count on until it happened. But it happened at eighty three. And. I'd always wanted to do baseball. I mean, that's quote, unquote, the big radio sport. And. So when I finally got it I was in seventh heaven, but if you say to me wish did you like better, I like them all don't have that problem. I really don't have that problem. You know in basketball, then it's different now in basketball, then you doing radio you were right next to the bench. I was part of the team Mike for cello. So great to me said he tell people John's like one of the staff because you're you're traveling together. You're you're you're sitting they get you could hear everything going on. You heard all the stuff going on this stuff? And now they take radio, and they put it up in the in the balcony, and they're not even part of the game. But then you very much part of it. So you know, you can't do everything. So I was doing when I got you Lanta, then I was doing baseball and basketball and. I've had I should knock on wood here. I've unusually good health. I haven't missed a game at thirty eight years. And in Atlanta, they were five years. I was doing about two hundred and twenty games a year between baseball basketball. Now, I've missed the game of the angst and the thirty years. So I've been very fortunate. But isn't like I like one of the other when you're doing a game you doing the game, you know, this year, they gave me a little tossed little rose my way, and and they I I did a a nets game on TV. And it was like I had done it. I hadn't stopped because that's part of me is inside of me. And. It was. At some point. I haven't done an island. I haven't done island game. But anyway, I'm just saying it was very easy for me. And and it was a lot of fun. And once the game begins boy, I do it. I may not like the packing on backing I may not like the Enke's. We don't getaway day games. So we get into cities at four in the morning. And and you're whipped in it screws up your system, but as far as the game is concerned. Once the game starts once. I start talking. I love it. And I have a partner. Susan Waldman who loves as much as I do just pours everything into it. And you know, we have a very nice wavering. Nice family with a Jack Maldonado, our producer engineer and Rick rouse. Who does all the backup for us? And so, you know, I'm very fortunate sport that you haven't done that you wish you might have wanted to to try or that you also think you could have done well, and especially given the seventies and the eighties, right? Which certainly the seventies was almost a well spring of challenger leagues. And and hell we don't seem to be any shortage of folks who want to create new sports or new leagues. But is there anything that you that eluded you that you might want it to have done or? Or tried or Bonello? I don't think so, you know, I I played basketball my life, and and then I ripped up on me. And I I really couldn't play anymore. Just didn't come back. And so then I went fulltime at a tennis. So I guess I could have broadcast tennis in some way. But that's not a really exciting play by play. I think I've chosen the right sports. I have no interest in boxing, no interest in golf, no interest in horse racing. So I couldn't have done those sports 'cause I didn't know them no interest in soccer. So believe I told Mike, okay? My buddy, Michael k on his center program that I've had as companions through my life. And I mean from the time I was you know, when you start remembering things seven eight, you know. I've had sports and music as companions and I'm involved with sports and music every single day of my life. So I'm you know, really extremely fortunate. You know, I have this ability. I focus on the things I like, and I totally ignore the things I don't like this. So so, you know, I've been able to combine my avocation and vocation and it's worked out. All right. So let's ask maybe one sort of foundational the sort of ending question here. Maybe you can maybe wax the style GIC or prophetic on it. Wh you know, you've obviously spent a a lifetime in in sports broadcasting and and in some of the most major and high profile purchase purchase out there. What is so how would you describe the profession today through that lens of forty plus years or so? Better worse things that you maybe wish hadn't changed, and maybe things that have changed for the better. I know it's kind of an open ended question. But you know, you've got a nice longitudinal viewpoint from some of the I quote, unquote, good old days to maybe even today's good old days. I really curious. I've mentioned that I mentioned it. And I hope I can. Put it into some kind of thought that people will latch onto in the seventies. And eighties. She I don't know. This has got to be very tough in the seventies. Sixties seventies. Baltimore. Everybody knew everybody everyone who did something. All the athletes all the broadcast is all the writers over making the same money, but really the sixties more and it was like. Everyone was part of it. You played basketball together you play golf together you play tennis together. Yeah. You were in the same restaurants at cetera. Eddie anyway, and the seventies. I think too and the eighties. I think the broadcast was much closer to is teams. But as far as the difference in broadcasting, there's no difference. It's all communicating in your language to your listeners. And so in that way, I don't to me nothing has changed. If you said to me, John you you've done the Anki thirty years. You mean, nothing has changed. Well, it's changed in that. When when Tory Burch Showalter got very close to Susan, and Michael and myself, and it's still that way. And then a real buddy of mine came in to manage the Yankees, Joe, Tori. Joe Torre, basically took me out to dinner every night on the road for twelve is. So that was different. So that part's different. But as far as broadcasting broadcasting is broadcasting it's communicating. And this the English language your to your listeners. I don't think that changes at all our this'll be my last question, then I promise. So I'm wondering to you know, we we are we're recording this episode. The the day of the launch of yet another new professional football league. The sociation of the alliance of American football. The XFL is coming back in a new version next year. And there doesn't seem to be any shortage of new teams coming into a stab leagues like the Vegas Golden Knights in the new Seattle franchise in the H L. And I'm really curious to hear your thoughts about pro sports. And are we you know, I'm wondering if if we're if this is going to continue to grow and get bigger and bigger money and more teams and franchises. Or are. We may be getting a little I don't know a little peek, shall we say at in in what maybe the the business of sports can can. Deliver to the to the audiences out there. I you know, television and communications being quite different today. The I'm wondering in your opinion, if we're nearing a peak of pro sports saturation, or or maybe we're still got many many ways many years in and opportunities to go given where we've come from. Well, as so much to do with television these new little leagues, they're only biggest television as far as baseball basketball, football hockey. They're all here at the big leagues. They're all here to stay. They're going to do nothing, but get bigger and better, the crowds are bigger and better. And I the the football league you talk about him. I don't think bail amount that much, but they'll stay as long as TV as a matter of fact, you can say that about the big sports to the big leagues. They'll only say there if they retain their. Their ratings, you know, wouldn't win the ratings. Stop the goes off to you. So, but they it's so embedded. You know, what I've got a huge kick out of. One year. They didn't make the playoffs. And I watched the playoff games all them on TV and not only the places jam and the people screaming from the first bits of the last, but you could actually hear it through TV, and when you can hear crowd through TV radios different as all you hear. But I thought it was insatiable. And and no matter how much it gets knocked. And it does of course in the media. It doesn't really matter the fans love it. They love the idea of being part of it. It brings cities together. And I I don't see any problems. Now, you know, if once I'm long gone, you know, fifty years about a why no what's going to happen. But right now, they have no problems. Oh, they write about the problems. But as long as the fans are connected to the franchise. You know, Eddie Einhorn was a great leader sports television. He's passed on. And he was calling the White Sox with with his buddy, Jerry Reinsdorf and anyone's told me. They said, you know, he's the fans own the team. He's we're just the caretakers. It's the sa- fans game, and it is without fans. Well, they would still play the different sports, but then have to lug their equipment, you know, into central park and play the ball game. But this way if anyone ever thought it could be it was just telling Susan that that Anthony Davis when he turned down the New Orleans pelicans contract, the max contract get the contract was it was forty eight million a year. For five years. I would say unbelievable. Yes. And they're not spending it they're not making it. So they're making it. And you know, I'm not giving a very good answer. But sports, the the NBA NHL MLB and the NFL are here to stay the fans love it. They've a great connection in a motion connection, and you see it. When the the stand jammed zero degrees in Kansas City. There. So you know, you have to work through problems. They're always really problems of everything in life. But. For the foreseeable future. They're only going to get bigger and better. Well, john. I look I appreciate this. This is I and I certainly appreciate your letting us drag you into some of your earliest stops, whether you care to remember them or not, you know, you know, I remember I everyone remembers everything and their lives. Of course. I remember the men and like them, I I love those W H games in the garden before five thousand people. I love the games at downing stadium as you know. Relic if they shouldn't have played there. So not. It's all fun. I take it down. All fun. Yeah. I guess they're tougher ways to make a living. Right. And when you're having in the zone, and you know, what you wanna do which you obviously knew at very early age it shows, and I think your longevity and the pinnacle, you know, obviously being the Yankees broadcaster for such a long period of time is proof of that. And look I thank you for taking a few minutes to kind of let us a drag you back into that passed. And and celebrate your your current and hopefully longtime future with your current gig with the Enke's muzzle tough. Well, I appreciate it. My also hope it's long time. I get my kids who college first, and then we'll see. But anyway, thank you so much. I appreciate hope I've done a good job for you. And but I've enjoyed it very much. All right. Our thanks to the the one the only John sterling and we wish him a tremendous amount of success in this upcoming season. With the New York Yankees broadcasting. I dunno zillion season.

Progressive casualty insurance company and affiliates. Price and coverage match limited by state law. Broadcasting from the Mercedes men. This is Dan Patrick. When lower on this Tuesday in the dentist and Patrick show got basketball coming up in about an hour and a half on the DP show app. The three on three league with the danettes, the American unathletic association of America poll question, mclovin, it is sponsored by man versus food on cooking channel should major league baseball outlaw the shifts. Seventy five percent said, no and about a hundred people. Send me. Angry tweet why this really fires people. Be like just learn to hit to the opposite field that kind of thing true. Yes, that's my. You're a professional hitter. And there's a shift on. I would think of professional hitter would be able to hit it the other way. And then they won't have the shift the reason why they had the shift is you keep swinging in this and trying to hit it in the same place. But the shift is usually reserved for great hitters all time hitters like David Ortiz. And you know, I saw Anthony Rizzo. Get shifted on all great hitters, get the shift not scrubs. It's hard. Yeah. For I'm not saying it's easy, but they can learn to hit opposite field. I remember in literally, the pot of practices, not because shifts necessarily, but if you shift your body, your point your, your hip in a certain direction or learn how to swing a little bit later this ways to hit it opposite field. They didn't do a shift on you to the. They actually what was weird was. I hit me as a left. I was getting at Miller to left center field. I was getting around late. Slow pitch around Brooklyn and the people started shifting their teams run. It was it was very bizarre. I was working when we only left, he's everybody's shifting to the left side of the field because I wasn't bullying. Yes, mclovin. So obviously, this personally kill Ryan Howard's career everyone knows. I mean it's all on his epitaph the shift killed and it's gonna hurt. Bryce harper. You-know-what killed Ryan Harper right now, Ryan how're the shift there's no being healthy and striking out a lot. Fivethirtyeight has this long article and how the shift cut his average? So when remember when he signed that contract, and I all my gun that's going to be so bad. And it was I don't want anybody for longer than five years. I I mean as far as athletes go, you know, I, I just don't I in baseball, I don't want you more than five years, I would rather take the chance that you're going to be better after five years, and then I have to pay for it, then do be locked in, because I feel like players when they get locked into a contract. There you can take a year off. You just do. I think mentally you can just go. Hey, I want I got my contract here. I don't have to worry about it. I'm not playing for new contract. I mean, there's a reason why guys put up career years when they're ready to get a new contract, because they're all in on that we thirteen years is a it's forever for Bryce Harper. And, you know, maybe he's wired ways always going to be competitive, and fiery and play hard and all of those things, but he's just too inconsistent for me where I go. I, I don't know what I'm getting Mike trout. I know exactly what I'm getting. I do I can plug in those numbers for the most part? I don't know that with Bryce Harper, and you get locked into these guys and Ryan Howard steel. Oh my God. It was so bad, and especially a first baseman, and I gotta get somebody who can do something first base you to stand there. And then, you know you don't run, you know, you're be pay it hit home runs. I got to get more out of you than just that some phone calls coming up. Anthony in California, a Anthony. What do you have for me today? Hey, Dan, five nine one eighty. You know, I, I hate being that guy that that goes back and say, you know, back in my day, but I think I'm still one of those Showtime, Laker guys and I'm just thought all in on the three point shooting, you know, I'm watching the play offs and I'm seeing the guys talked about both teams and they're saying, oh, the wears, you know, they made fifteen three pointers and and yet they still only have like ninety eight points in the game almost over. I still think you have to go inside out. And, and I just don't believe that the scoring one hundred points. Each game for each team is is because the three I think it's also because the free throws you know what do you think about that? Well, I don't know about the inside out it used to be that way where you went inside, and then kicked it back out for these jumpers. But you know today's game I feel like there's a game plan for the regular season in a game plan for the postseason in certain teams are geared towards a seven game series because, hey they adapt. They play great d-. Offense their systems a little bit harder to prepare for it feels like the league is caught up to Golden State a little bit and understanding what to do against Golden State that doesn't mean if Kevin Durant, and Klay Thompson aren't healthy that they're not winning the championship. I took the field this year. I didn't think Golden State was going to win. But at the beginning of the year, I said the only way that they don't win as if to superstars get hurt and it happened. Unfortunately, that, that was the case with Golden State Toronto has a style that how do you prepare for that? You know, you got to prepare for coli who else you preparing for they have a deep team, and they have an interesting roster. I don't think anybody's going to emulate Toronto and less, the, you know, the part that they emulate is hey, let's rent somebody for a year like Toronto did with Kawhi. They took a chance on Colli. Oklahoma city. They took a chance on Paul George didn't win a title. But who would have thought Paul George was staying in Oklahoma City that might be there are two things that could come out of this load management and renting a superstar because Kawai was involved in both Kawai. You rented him and load management he played in sixty games. And if I'm the Lakers, and I'm LeBron I have to look at how many games are we gonna let LeBron play in this year? Because I want him ready to go for the postseason. And are, are we going to start to look at sixty is the new normal for these players where you're taking off twenty two games during the regular season and LeBron's age, you know, turning thirty five and I mentioned this number yesterday, and people were shocked by it at the same age thirty five LeBron will have played in almost three hundred and fifty more games than Michael Jordan. And counting. He's not thirty five yet but three I mean that's what four seasons. You're talking about the wear and tear will catch up on you. It did you know, just like Kobe the wear and tear, when you play deep into may and June. It catches up with you it caught up with Golden State. If you could have said, hey, should we be aware of load management for Kevin Durant, or Steph curry, or Klay Thompson, you know, the NBA is TRITON know they frowned on this, and Gregg Popovich, of course, was a head of everybody on this. It wasn't called load management. He just decided we're gonna play the Miami Heat Miami. And I'm not gonna play Tim and Tony in Manu. He was trying to give them breaks rest, but I don't know what the Commissioner and I believe, we're going to have the Commissioner on soon. At least they reached they reached back to us after we had reached out to them. But you know what's the. Commissioner going to do with the regular season. And what do you do with load management? If somebody is not injured and their goal is to win a championship as the Commissioner. I know it's a league, you know, for entertainment. But if your goal is to win a championship here, like how can I punish you and teams were fined because of that the Spurs, I believe got find know. I don't know how much one hundred thousand dollars, something like that. You guys can check, but, you know where we going with load management and renting a superstar because I do think that's what teams may do I think co I may stay another year in Toronto. I wouldn't be surprised. I think Kevin Durant was going to stay maybe another year and Golden State. You're not renting them, but you're keeping them for another year. Yep. Based off that why didn't the Celtics go after Anthony Davis harder than and just take a chance. Get him for one year. See what you could pull off with that roster. And you know, you may lose some guys but but they didn't have a roster leftover. That's the biggest issue. And that's why I said, I think the Celtics did the right thing if coli or if kyri is gone. There's too many ks if kyri is gone, and I, I'm going to get rid of Brown, and Tatum, and Rozier, so that's my young nucleus. I'm st-. I'm saddled with Gordon Hayward contract because he's not going to be the player. He once was Al Horford is eventually going to be too old to be Al Horford. And now I'd have Anthony Davis in what, what else would I have? I think the Celtics are better off, if kyri leaves you still have Brown and Tatum Rozier. And then maybe you maybe bring in some other. Items here, maybe contrived, but I didn't want that big trade for the Celtics, because there was nobody there. Whereas the Lakers have LeBron there and they have Kyle Kuzma. So you're already ahead of what the Celtics would have been. If you traded for Anthony Davis, if you had to give up Tatum, and Brown and Rozier, then whatever else you're bringing Anthony Davis into a cupboard that was not bear, but it wasn't fully loaded there. But maybe that's where we're headed. But I think the load management, you're still if I'm a superstar in the NBA and the grind and the play offs. And it goes deep into June. I'd be looking at load management as well. And I think how we look at value during the regular season, are you going to be able to give the MVP to a guy who plays sixty games. In Toronto went seventeen and five I believe without Kawhi Leonard. How valuable was he? They went seventeen and five. I think I think I know less now after all day. So what does the game plan we wanna star? We need a star. We need Marcus all I four stars stars. I think we got a everybody emulate the Toronto Raptors there. And if that shot didn't go in and get the Sixers game seven, none of this. None of those lessons would apply. But if they didn't go seventeen in five homecourt advantage, they wouldn't have gotten the friendly bounce. They're mclovin. By the way, if you're wondering what Colli Leonard sounded like yesterday during the victory parade here he is Leonard. Back walk over here. A tray with open arms. Man. It made my experience that much better these guys. Let me do what I do on a floor cozying. Let me do what I do. And now we got a championship. Thank you. They said enjoy this. Enjoy this moment. And have fun with it. We know he's making a joke. I think I think so. Oh, cool. Why? Build that statue. Now that's what I would do. I'd build the statue now outside the arena just to say to collect like make it like like a permanent statue. Yes. Not like a paper Michelle, no, no build the statue now to say quiet you can't leave us man. You can't lead look at this. Look, we got, you know, got a statue here. I would just I would I would play off his emotion. If he has any, I would I would do my. And that might be the reaction from him golden wrote brewing, if you haven't tried it. What are you waiting for me, and I love this? It's great the wolf pup session IP offered in canon draft wolf pup session, IP is Hoppy refreshing wildly era. Matic tropical citrus. Character. Brewed to stand out also mango cart. Wolf pup session. I p available in all fifty states. California, inspired golden road brewing, fresh craft beers since twenty eleven I'm on this alcohol-free diet for sixty days. Yeah. Man. That's my reaction. The motto of our news team is we don't break news. We sprayed it. Let's go to in the I team heard rumblings of beer in the hall free diet. Yup. Unconfirmed. Yep. Father's day. And I'm with my son and he said. Can you have anything to drink? I said, what do you got in mind? He goes, how about a beer and I said, well, I shouldn't he goes, it's Father's Day. And I said, I haven't had any alcohol here in six weeks. And he goes, why don't we have something? So I split a beer with my son Father's Day beers with your kid that the doctor's got understand. I did tell my doctor he goes, you don't want to tell me everything you do or don't do with your diet. I go, okay. And I said, well just trying to be honest with you dock, and we have golden road on tap here, you know how hard it is to walk by. And we have two areas where you can get the beer on tap. So there's the bar right behind mclovin. And then there's the one out in the grilling area and every day I walked by and I just look over at those taps, and teasing obstacle man. And I wanted so badly. The other day to have just a draft of wolf. Pup. Obsession and ice. I said, Nope, not gonna do it. I'm so strong. And then I caved a little bit and had half a beer there on Father's Day. Let me see what do we need to mention here. I got some Email here, and I want to bring back of Seton says, we haven't played the Yankee calls here, so the home run calls, John sterling as only, John, sterling can, we have some homerun coast of, to bring your attention here? Yes. Yes. Fritzy. Looking forward to us homerun Kate. Thank you. Got by the way. I'm drinking celery water right now. Yeah, you want who wants to hang with me? Can you just drink water water? Wouldn't it tastes better? It does. But I'm drinking the purified water. But then my daughter says, you should be drinking celery water. Is buyer celery? It is really tough. It is it is really tough. But. You know, it's just to make me healthier. How about a root beer float? Let's go. How, how okay what? But how healthy can it make you if it's making you miserable, fair, but aren't most things that make you, healthy make you miserable? It's just a drink like celery tastes. It's good to eat. Yes. Especially if you're Dunkin it in, you know, peanut butter. Yeah. Some lather with peanut butter or like blue cheese with wing sauce, anytime you end you purify, celery chop it up like that unless it's in a Bloody Mary whole anytime that you liquefy it, and put it into a drink and immediately ruins the drink back celery by self as an embarrassment and a salary even knows it. But if I can have a shame celery Margarita right now. Okay. That'd be pretty good. Like I could do that. The holiday, you infuse hope hall, a hall of pain you back girl young. So I got celery juice right now. This is so bad. But what happens at the end of this? What's the goal here? I asked the doctor on Sunday, I said after sixty days, then wanna goes will see and I go wait. We wait. I thought there was a carrot at the end of the sixty days and in. I'm going on vacation. I said, what do I do when I'm on vacation, and he said, well have fun on vacation. And I said, well can like what does that mean? He said, just don't go crazy. It's a small window in your life and just do that. And I said, okay. So I thought after sixty days, I got to have meat, I got to have beer and wine and cigars. And there's no guarantee of that. That's a little bayton switch here because I thought it was sixty days. And then all of a sudden you get a reward here. There's no reward coming up here, not after sixty days and the wings, and I miss those, I haven't had any wings and almost two months. Yes, a doctor for a wing exemption. He would probably say, okay, everything in moderation, paulie. Yes. That's the thing your diet is not moderation. It's extremism. Yes, it is. And I don't know. I obviously, it's hard to have wings once a month, but it is it better. Would you rather wings once a month or will you have wings every week? If you do it once. Yeah. Discipline guy. I I'd rather not do any yes he and now you should just consider sticking with it. Stick with your diet. It's with mine. Yeah. Wire-to-wire wherever that wire in. I know I know. But you know what? You miss coffee at seven AM and something to drink at seven Pia like your body says, hey, you just drove by Starbucks or. Hey, it's seven o'clock. It's five o'clock somewhere. Do you want to have a drink a lot of coffee with a little something or a lot of something with a little coffee? Yeah. And then just to be able to not have that like at night at seven o'clock, and you're going, I could use something to drink. And then you can't so in between I'm okay, it's the seven AM and seven p that are pretty pretty rough sledding, their allies noticed somewhere around four four or five o'clock, I started pacing little bit getting a little long in the day. Well, what's happened is I have to take myself out of the comfort zone. So I said to my wife, let's go start seeing movies like at four fifteen in the afternoon. No, usually, I'll try to go for like a six o'clock movie. And it doesn't matter what it is. It's the time in the movie because my wife will go. Well, there's this, and this and this, let's go. See that. Why would you. Like that. What time is it starts? Six ten. Let's go. There aren't a lot of movies that start at six ten. Is that like, when you have a baby, and you're just trying to get to the end of the day? Yeah. And you're, you're mapping out your whole day where you're like. Right. This'll take up to hours. Let's go do that. And then it's three o'clock. All right. Let's get a nap down. That's the four. And then from four to five we could go to the park, and then after that, you're just checking down to win the kid goes to sleep. Yeah. That's what I'm trying to do. And you just look at the clock and you go. Oh, god. It's five o'clock. And then my wife is supposed to be on the same diet. And I caught her cheating the other day, I walk in, and she's got a glass of wine, she saving chicken, I go. What are you doing? She goes, I didn't know you were gonna come home, a glass of wine and a piece of chicken, the heathen. Yes. So I caught my wife cheating with a glass of wine and I went what do you do? She set the mood with the light and stuff. On. She was all dressed up. I said, what he had make up. What are you doing because I didn't think you were come home. So here's a poker whose diet. Do we have more of a problem with yours, Dan, which is extreme one way or Todd's, which is more extreme in another? That's why I didn't understand you saying going hiding in a movie theater. But then there's the buttered popcorn and snow caps and an ICU all kinds of bringing organic popcorn. No butter nachos hot smuggling. I listen to you knew the guy busted me and I said, it's organic popcorn I can't have your stuff on a strict diet. And he goes, I go ahead. I won't tell oh, they have to bring in my, my purified water, and I bring in organic popcorn. But man look at me. I'm so healthy. Yeah. That's where you guys say. Yes. You look great. Yeah. Then you're good. But. I said, I'd rather be unhealthy in happier than healthy and unhappy. I close on that. I know Todd does. Now. There's some teenage kid made you open your coat degree weather smuggling that in this type of weather. Yeah. Because and I said, well, you know, it's warm out. You can't just wear a big coat in here. And then my wife goes on just put it in my purse. And so, you know, the guy goes the said something about you smuggling stuff in. And I said he was just joking. And I said, organic popcorn I brought I brought my own pop puck popcorn here Hindi goes I just Joe. He goes. Oh, yeah. You did. He goes. All right. Go in. I said, special price, you would just cheap not about like this special organic meal. No one wants to spend eight nine dollars for popcorn shrew.

I just had a new idea for our song about the name your price tool. So when it's like, tell us what you want to pay. Hey, trombone goes, blah, blah, blah, and you say, we'll be fine. Carbo jopstone to fit your budget. Then we just all do finger snaps while a choir goes, savings coming at ya. Savings coming at you. Yes. No. Maybe. Anyway, see you practice tonight. I got new lyrics for the rap break. Progressive casualty insurance company and affiliates. Price and coverage match limited by. Nate law. I don't know what you glean from this. But here's the all NBA teams this year, the number of games played by the players Janas seventy two games, Paul George, seventy seven Yokich eighty James harden, seventy eight Steph curry, sixty nine so I'm talking about load management here. Coli famously was sixty Joel Embiid sixty four Kyrie at sixty seven the Braun injured fifty five Kemba Walker played eighty two games. Rudy Gobert eighty one games. Russell Westbrook junior. The third seventy three games seven of the fifteen players to make the all NBA teams played fewer than seventy five games five of the fifteen played fewer than seventy games. I think load management is going to become a bigger deal here because if I'm a superstar I look at what co- I did. Now you know, he was coming off the injury in San Antonio. But load management as much as we kind of. Moc that, oh, not playing due to load management. I do believe that that's going to be part of the strategy. It should be for any of these superstars, who are, you know, over the age of thirty two or thirty three. Yeah. Mclovin, Ken, the Lakers put together enough talent to afford that strategy with LeBron that's going to be the key, because Davis and Kouzmin will Davis has been injury prone. But you, you wanna make sure that they're playing maybe more games, more minutes. And then LeBron I got a I got to have him strategically ready for certain matchups here and be ready certainly for the postseason and coming off this injury as well. And he's got a lot of mileage on that body you go back when Kobe Kobe would like turning thirty three and I said he's thirty five with his body because all of those games and you start earlier you come right out of high school, and you're playing so for LeBron in some of these, like Kevin Garnett when you're coming right out of high school, you're two years, at least. The head of some of these players in the NBA when they get in. Yeah. I've been thinking about it the past week even if the NBA lowers from eighty two game regular season. The seventy games the players are still going to take care of themselves in play fewer than all other. So if the season seventy games, quiet Leonard playing fifty six so that doesn't fix the issue, it just cut now you just cut revenue for no reason whatsoever. It didn't fix the issue in. I don't think they're I, I don't know. I'm not sure I don't know how that a work. But if you say, look, if we're going to take it from eighty to seventy and you say to the players, you know, you, you got to help us here because we're going to reduce that regular season workload, you couldn't take anybody on their words do once the Spurs six or seven years ago started sitting healthy players, it caught on because the Spurs did nothing but win usually. And then well, the Spurs are doing it, it must be right. And that's where this all started. Chris in California joins us. I Chris would you have for me? Hello. I just wanted to say good luck to the big baller brand today. And they're going to take the championship, but I'm willing to bet paulie a shower shame that he does not score a basket for the whole season. He doesn't have to score one basket the whole season. He scores one. I'll take shower shame. If he doesn't score, he have to shower shame, and I think, pod fruits, will be the first one to score over police. And that's what I. Okay. Hold on here. Chris paul. You up for Chris and a shower shame that you don't score this absolutely not. I'm not going to alter my game and just to win a bet. But that's not what teammates do. And if I did make that bet I would just tell seat in the let me score the first basket of the game make this guy shower in peanut butter sauce, and see would do it because he's a good producer. Okay. Todd in North Carolina. Sorry. Chris. I taught. Yeah. Yeah, a couple of things. The first one is when talking about LeBron and Michael Jordan, and the blonde having three hundred or so more games that take into account, the ninety or so games. Jordan would have played in college, if it does, and the is really pretty for like four hundred dollars on more than Jordan, in the second comment is in the quality entered speech that you just played a few minutes ago. There's almost like a Paul when he says you guys enjoy it right now. Let's like he's thinking 'cause you're gonna get another. Thank you, Todd. I didn't pick up on that. But I think there's a lot of things implied with Kawhi Leonard speech there. Yes. Because if he hasn't said he's staying in any form. However, it doesn't look great. You know what, what is he waiting for here? Already knows how much money makes if he stays. He knows how much money makes if he goes now you are just looking at rosters. Are you looking at can the Lakers squeeze me in salary wise, Gregor's? Well, I'm just throwing out like if you're collide, I guess they're supposed to be four teams that he's entertaining four six who knows? I can't keep track of these lists, but could Golden State somehow work out something with Kawhi Leonard. I, I don't know this, but I'm just wondering from perspective to be fair to him. And plus, he can't he's not going to say anything until free agency starts. There's no reason to it would have been nice to hear that if you're Toronto fan at the parade, where. Goes. And by the way, I'm staying. How crazy with that have been? I'm staying at this parade, everybody leaves because I'm going to clean up the paused. He would just said. And I'm staying. Until Drake gets here, and then we're going to get on his seven, sixty seven, and then how much does that cost? Thank you. Thank you. You wanted to buy one? Well, how much did did drink he knows it rent? That, that's his right. Did he buy them plane? And how much does it cost just to fuel that sucker up? Because that's not one of those g five things those little kid planes. I mean he's. He get a big boy point. Oh, I don't know. If anybody has one of those just him, but that's air, Drake. Yeah. But I wonder what that cost if he bought it did he did. He buy new Mansi. I have this in, I think pounds. It says it's a converted cargo plane valued at one hundred forty two point nine million pounds possible. That's not possible in how much does it cost a fuel that sucker. There's no way the estimated cost one hundred eighty five million dollars before customization. Oh, come on. That's the way a brand new seven six seven buck eighty five and then he had to put Louis Vitton in the bathrooms, but why don't you just buy like five G fives or something? Three five used g fives or something, you know, for for fuel efficiency, I don't just because you don't need to have that big a plane everywhere you go. I guess unless he brings everybody on tour with him. Like I just love that he's like, when he talks about it. He says, not it's no rental. No timeshare thirty bought and paid for do you ask your friends to chip in for gas money like when you're a teenager? All right. Three grand everybody chip in putting the pile or if you fly all of your friends somewhere, you're like, all right. So I got air fare. You guys are paying for everything else, right hamburgers on you like can somebody chip in and get a dinner, please. Hotel and combinations. Maybe can you do that for me? I would just stay on the plane. Right. Does park it stay on the plane bring the party to the plane? Let me see got a couple of Email here. I wanna get those John sterling homeland calls. This from John in Saint Louis innovation is always a good thing. Don't outlaw the baseball shift last night. Matt carpenter bunted away from the shift in got a double. Well John being Saint Louis native. And it was a Saint Louis cardinal Matt carpenter with the bunt. Maybe that's why he's saying they don't get rid of the Shifter. Why did it takes a long for somebody to figure out just the other way? I've been like I'm sorry that it did. Why didn't any nobody thought of that before I've been saying it for years, there's everybody over there, no one over there? No. In my ego. No, I'm gonna I'm still gonna I'm playing my game. Mclovin. That's the underhanded free throw of the LP to bundle ship. This is let's see who's this from Sean, in California, been listening forever. The Kevin Costner interview goes into the books. Me and the wife were on the floor laughing. Our butts off great stories, give it up for Kevin f kosner. It might be t-shirt Kevin Costner goose in New Mexico. The Kevin Costner segment. Probably your best ever had tears from laughing. Let's see what else do we have. Here's John in California morning. Dan in the danettes. As a lifelong, Laker fan, no way the Lakers should go after Chris Paul is expensive. Can't stay healthy. Please, dan. Don't keep suggesting it sorry, John. Well, we talked to his GM, Daryl Morey in the first hour, he said Chris Paul's not being traded. I would certainly listen. If somebody wanted asked me about Crispell, I would but then, you know, the rockets are in a good position because they're everybody else is sort of, in a state of flux, starting with Golden State in Houston is always geared their season towards beating Golden State. That's not the case this upcoming season. Mitch in Detroit. Just. Yeah. Major airplane update on Drake per E online. Then when your favorite news sources you Drake got his airplane for free. The company cargo jet gave Drake the plane free in exchange for publicity via social media. Cargo jet sill owns it. But they basically give it to him in perpetuity wants. Okay. Well, that's not as mixed reports on what he would have paid for could have paid for it. But it appears he's paying noth- still pretty good deal by him. Yeah. Oh, great deal. Good businessmen. It's a twenty three year old plane that he got. Never mind, then two years ago start drinking. But, but the rest the renovation. Was costing between eighty and one hundred million dollars. Come on. We need that, though. I mean you need that. Me. Okay. Let me see what else. Oh, Mitch in Detroit. Just wanted to proudly say that I've received only my second right up on the job in twenty three years. My boss caught me watching the thrilling game between the big faller brand, and the orange crush. It was well worth the right up. That's Mitch in Detroit. I Mitch I hopefully you didn't lose your job. But hey, the AU is exciting basketball. What what is awfully good? Yeah. Awfully good with the emphasis on, we should do awfully in large letters, good, real small letters. Yeah. It's you a awfully good. Yes. Todd and Glenn. He didn't get in trouble work because we didn't exactly hold up into the bug. And I believe we were down sixteen to real quick in week to last week's fritzy put a lot on the line that for a bad game for C says you offered up a different version of Kevin Costner's name, Kevin curse nerve having Kirsten. When he dropped to s bombs, and I'm like, okay, and then when he went all in and gave us the three P with the F bomb, and I was like, no, no, no, no. You can't do that. Can't do that. Now, if people go and listen to that interview, do they get to hear that interview in its entirety Seton do we know if that has been modified edited, the what Kevin Costner? Hello. There was one. Oh, yeah. No, that's been modified. No. What has I think I'd rather have it? Okay. So I think the video is modified, I've chances are the podcast is flying. Full bloom. Yeah. I would imagine nobody censored that. Yeah. Rich and Ohio, before we take a break, they rich. Hi, dan. That DNA. It's five ten one ninety first time on time. They end up call from around your area, Wilmington, Ohio. Okay. Here's a question and I don't know all the intricacies of the n being contract situation. But would it be possible for bron- to go to Lakers management, and tell them look? I'm playing three more years that after that to further my contract for this coming year you go decide to max deal players all different of my contract and also set up with. All right. I'm not sure if it's possible to do that rich, I don't know how much you can defer, you know, I know Brady has been able to take a, a modified salary. I and I don't know. He's stretched his contract out, but I don't know if libra can you guys check and see if LeBron would be able to like play for a million dollars this year. And then defer thirty million dollars. Yeah. I don't think he can do a million there. He's too high end for that type of veteran's minimum. His contract is up come. Seasons. Thirty seven and a half million dollars thirty nine million forty one he could restructure. But there's only so far you can go and still get all your money because they won't let you do it. Because the, the, the counting get your cap now because otherwise you know, he could he could just a for his money for two years and signed to a max guy. So I don't know if that's possible. Rich, I don't think it is. We'll take a break less call for phone calls. What we learn. What's in store tomorrow, and John sterling with the Yankee home run calls.

The sense. She know the hits a two run home run. Gary is scary, not the best part of listening to John and Susan Waldman is, when Susan is Larry's best it's by far the most entertaining thing and it happens a couple of times a game. Okay. Susan, it'll be like and joined that's why we've never seen anything like this before is the most amazing thing that ever happened in a game. And they'll be like three seconds of dead air, and John go anyway. He didn't even react anyway to, to. Do you think Hankas areas in their writing for Brock Margot, and I can't even compete with John sterling bride is supposed to be a joke. I just think that he just writes down whatever done. Sterling says it goes you're right in my script for me for the latest Brock Meyer season, you know, Susan I used to always love it where no matter what was happening. It always came back to, here's the to, to, to, to, to cheat. All right. Let's see fund results of the poll question today, should the Hubei man versus food on cooking. So I should the MLB.

Now, we should not forget, though the team fritzy's going up against the goon squad. So that, that's a tough defensive matchup for Todd. I don't know if he's got the, the big German on 'em or who's guarding toddler net is not an easy match up on any of those if it's Alan the IT guy that's tough match-up for Todd. Yeah. And, and Paul these kind of embraced the playmaker role, which sometimes happens when you can't share. I don't make any plays actually. But I liked it. Hey, I like the Nikki this day in sports history. Would he have? It's kind of a light one, Dan. Fred Lynn of the Red Sox.

Bradley Beal would be the guy and New Orleans might sneak in there. And try to get Bradley Beal Mick Lovin. Gary would have started at Washburn and then played a Kansas decided Goff was sport for him. Not basketball. Yeah. I love the fact that there's video of when the US open champ was playing division two basketball against K U seat. No Connor junior, the third Gary woodland great interview he was sad. Come in.

You're listening to fox media podcast network song only means one thing it means. We're live here on the ma dot com youtube page fifty nine eve. It goes down a little less than twenty four hours from right. Now because we've fifteen fight card why fifteen. Everything kicked off tomorrow eastern standard time before he ended off yamba whole which israel out of sonya. Ufc light heavyweight title in the main event. And we are here for our preview. Show with all of you guys. There's so much discussed so much to talk about and we want you to sort of help us guide the conversation before we do that. I m my cac being joined by the whole crew here. We got jose. Young's in las vegas there is. We got alex kaley. In toronto prince positively there is cooler than the other side of the pillow and e. Casey leiden on the ones and twos most dangerous mustache in the game. Blue steel unbelievable jose. I'll start with you. I know vegas is a much different city in this day and age compared to what this card would look like with the fans and everything like three years ago or so but you know. There's a lot of media out there the buzzes in the air. Dana white's excited. Everyone seems fired up for this. How would you describe the feel and you know what it's like. They're considering there's no crowd and not a lot of craziness from that press conference dana white sound fired up. I don't so but it's we had no hell no we have like he's probably fired up inside but i thought we were talking about this in the media about this in the media room for way and started like he was so just somewhere else during. I don't know where his mind was during that press. She go watch the interview. Brad it was jesse the same like he's clearly excited for the fight and he wants his fight to happen but doesn't sound like a fight promoter like go watch literally any eddie earn interview. And you're like oh this is what a promoter sounds like. He sounds like dana white ten years ago. I'm not saying his phone in in funding in whatsoever. I just think it's mind somewhere else this week where i have known him. He's working on his texas plan. But now dan away did not sound fired up at all to me like his whole like salman. The bantamweight division was like yes. These two guys are really talented. And this is the perfect time for them to fight like. That's yeah that's what everyone is saying like sell the fight like beyond results remain sterling. Like gimme something like. Why should people care about megan aniston nunez and it was nothing it was. It was all out of nothing out. Preston announced it was weird. Press conference for sure but yeah In terms of the media it feels as normal close to a normal fight league as possible Without the fans will certainly the amount of media the preliminary day followed by the press conference. Only thing missing was open workouts. Like i said the same thing on fire island with the with the fans and everything. But there's just more media here this time than it was for the connor fight card the shooting videos and ask some questions that is so from the last twelve months. This is as close to a normal fight. Week as i can recall aka. What's can you compare this week to any other. I mean i know we're in a pandemic and it's different without having like tens of thousands of people in arena and getting all fired up for the weigh ins and all that different thing. But i feel like this card is really good. I think it's universally praised. I haven't found anybody that says like a negative thing about it. So is there an event. You would compare this to in terms of the bill and being a day before. I don't know if you can. I want to kind of pick up a little bit one. Jose said about Dana whites mood. We've we've seen him. And i mean we've been critical of how dana white's You know for most things often. But i mean usually when there is a car the stack. We do get that kind of jazzed up. I mean even little over the top dana We've seen the kind of more sedated. Some might say tire dana. Maybe at the end of look a four like you know. A cluster of four fights a month. I think i want to say the first time they went to fight islands. I remember the last show. He was just you could see he was kind of like checked out wasn't last show. He went home early. It was not the last show. Whatever the last whatever i remember he was literally checked out of the so tell no i i remember like whatever the last year he was at during that stretch there you could just see. He was like. I want to get out of here. I'm ready to go home. But this is weird to see this at the beginning of a new fight cycle right. I mean that we have to be to nine to sixty the stretch So yeah. I'm not sure what's up I i don't know if it's the whole press conference had a sedated tone to it. I wonder if everyone is just kind of trying to be on their best behavior. And you know it's to be. It's kinda relieved that so far. Knock on wood. I know we've done this one hundred times this week That so far none of the pfizer fallen through where twenty four hours away. Now from the card happenings. Everything seems to be good And maybe the celebration and the in the hyperbole will be saved for after. Yeah i it's funny Given the it's given the the stakes and the drama the inherent drama on some of these matchups That were being a little more a little more self for everyone involves but i don't think it's a bad thing. I find a little bit refreshing anything. Maybe it's nerve. i dunno. Maybe it's because it's like you want to see some things. Play out. Certain ways like i understand. I mean you're promoter you want to do the best business you possibly again. I thought before the stare downs when he finally got on stage he looked like a new man. Almost like i can see where you guys were saying. That he's he was a little more subdued at the press conference this up but i thought he was like in a much better mood especially when one john sterling got up there and start a face off like it felt like his mood was changed. You could see him getting all fired up so Why don't we start with that fight. Casey lied and yon makes his first title. Defense against algebra in sterling. I think we've all sort of looked at this. Fight is not the people's main event but in terms of competitiveness as good as it gets this high level martial arts. Jose likes to say so. What are your thoughts on this fight. Yawns first title defense against sterling who you know. Seven years ago when he came into the ufc. We were waiting for this to happen but we felt like the state was coming at some point but took seven years to get here. He's finally here. What are your thoughts on the fight. I heard the term. You know. I don't like the term but term paper champ or peter yawn and i feel because i think people even though he does a auto coming off a loss to win the title. I really think this is his first real title fight in the sense that he's going against the true number one contender It seemed like auto got the got this bought beforehand based more on reputation and they put more butts in seats or pay per view buys. But i feel why. There's a lot of excitement for this is because Yeah this is true. Title fight between the champion then one contender and Yeah i'm just excited about. And i actually and i think we talked is on the way and show i. Just don't i don't know i know. Peter yon is clearly a level bantamweight. I don't know if he's like the best bantamweight yet. And we're gonna find out saturday. 'cause i feel we truly do have the number one and two bantamweight and the ufc fighting and as exciting. Jose your thoughts in this fight. I know this is right up. Your alley is there. Is there a certain thing a certain element of this fight. That's not getting enough attention. Because i feel like the narrative heading in and it's maybe it's staying away maybe it's other people who laid this out. It's it's jemaine in the wrestling in the submission game against the striking pierre. Yon and that's true in some of these types of fights in the of this nature but is that how you feel about this right now. It's just that simple It's an interesting question in terms of Questions about like this. The stylist who management skill said. I think what. I'm like as both of them at the press conference. Like what do you make of like i asked what do you make yawns grappling. Yon what you make of. Alger means striking. I think that's a real question. Like so far remains look has looked pretty. Much unstoppable with his grappling as of late and he's only lost was tomorrow He marlin his through and through. A striker yard has looked pretty unbelievable with striking and he's looking very impressive with his defensive wrestling. you've got full mount on aldo and black plastered all those punches but alba's agana striker so it's not so much striker verse. Like will the grapple striker down or the striker keep his standing. It's i want to see both men in the other world. Casey said like yawn is clearly like right now. He's the champ. He could very well be the best way on planet earth but i do wanna see him fight. An elite level grappler Like we saw hubby was the champion. Were like oh wait till he fights like a super high level striker and then he just blitzed through our boza. Horia a gaijin. He fought like like the knock is like even this this knock. That's not a knock on habib. Because they never got there like he's never had that opportunity to face someone who's just an elite grappler deja has the wrestling but he's obviously was much more striking in his ma. So i'm curious right now. Abi cubby theon fights a a super high level grappler. I wanna see how germain faces a super high level striker. So i do want to see both the others in the other one's strengths because it will be very talent Who's the coo. Will i think after the first two rounds gates past that we're going to have a good idea of how fights play out in k. Member of around a year or so ago. We had israel to sonya headlining events. Who's defending assailants. Y'all romero and then we had john wiley against you on jay and we were like wow like out of saudi versus romero's really interesting but man that john wiley versus yanni and j check is got to be a firefight like we just knew. We didn't expect it to be like one of the greatest title fights in ufc history but we expected like a really really good fight. Do you have a similar feeling with versus sterling. Are you at that point. Because i kind of have that feeling like i don't feel like exactly the same but it's similarities so to speak. Do you feel the same way are you. Are you putting that evil on this main event. Are you suggesting that is he again could be evolved involved in tactical battle that may be overshadowed by the The this case to champion fights the come before mike. Is that what you're suggesting. No i'm saying the feeling we had prior to the event starting No i think. I think all people have more realistic. Rotation has decided. It's what i don't hear as many people now. Saying i think like two weeks ago it was sort of like. Oh man like john sterling and and even nuneza begin. Anderson are kind of like you know sneaky and the way they might be more compelling than this champion vs champion by now. I think we've talked. Maybe it's just in the media now. I feel like we've talked about that. We put up that talking point so much. That was like shift the other way. It's almost like people aren't expecting Behove it's and at a sonya to be a classic anymore which which absolutely could be. I just wonder if if the That we've you know we've said well let's let's focus a little more than the other two title fights and something undercard stuff so I don't know i. I know we're gonna talk with the main event later but i do get the sense that a lot of people want john sterling to just steal the show and be the perfect culmination of how how strong the bantamweight to businessmen lately. I think it was the best. Most compelling division of twenty twenty and two kickoff twenty one with again what could be could be a the year canada or at least one of the best champion fights the year is such a statement for the guys at one thirty five. And i don't know where other goes from here. I know that a lot of questions of we're gonna ask about that. But i would be stunned. Anyone in the bantamweight division right now is able to rattle off like a like three or four telephones. I think we're gonna see this title swap hands quite a bit. I just think there's so much talent and also matchup matchup wise. You know styles beating certain styles if someone put together a dominant performance sorry dominant run and one thirty five from between now and that's the end of twenty twenty two and they're going to build. They'll make a strong case for being like one of the pound for pound best in all of them. Let us know what you think about this fight. Also the co main event between a man and nunez and begin and we talk about that and then we'll talk about the main event. Obviously but jon anik was on what the hack and he said man. I am glad that my job does not entitle me to make a pick for this fight butts what we do here. On these preview shows we make our picks as best. We can so in the closest fight in terms of the betting odds. Jose young's on this main card and new and still bantamweight title on the line. Yawn or sterling. Would who got who bro. I think i think i think surrounding walks that. There's a bunch of construction sites are trying to meet muslims. Much awesome I think sterling walks away with it. But it's gonna be hyper competitive. It's i think it lives up to the expectations. And this is by no means the only time these two will fight speaking with Our friend oscar willis last night and we were comparing this division. If you throw t dillashaw into the mix like dumont kings in boxing at that the peaks when sugar ray the durant and they had hagler hearns. It was like those four or just at the peak of their careers and they were just so dominant in so good in some of the greatest boxers of all time. And they're all in the same way classen. Tj in to this makes. I think the four kings of algae yawn san hagen dillashaw. I don't know of those better division. Top four in terms of competitiveness. In the uc. Maybe we'll do it. Maybe lightweight but banned at at this point in time is most competitive. At least so i think all four of those guys are gonna fight at least two three times against each other in their careers. But i think. I'll joe wins in march twenty twenty one and they look at the guys who are like outside of that top. Rob fog is outside of that top four crews and josie aldo fighting this division. You know what i mean. And and they're not even near the top four right now. I wouldn't think cody garbrandt. I know this flyway. Obviously marlon marlon. Meri's audio this is still same. Those tops. I still favor those top four over everyone. You said right now to here. So i think it's those four clearly the four best bantamweight in the world rob font if he if he got the tj fight in one. He'd obviously be there. But i just think fox expired right now which is ranking. What think money and new. I'm going. I'm going and new. I'm on the sterling train. Been on the sterling train for a while. And i think i think i'll go as far say sterling bhai. Submission don't know if i can pick around. I imagine if most people who are picking submission would assume the first or second round I dunno i dunno. I couldn't even see him hurting you on on the feet and then and then and then getting submission after that. So i think his striking is at that level where he can he can stand with john or or at least you know. Be enough a threat Wrestling can help set up striking. And i think it makes a difference. But it's it's crazy. 'cause yana so well rounded talk so much about sterling's grappling but yawn really again. He's he's not a background salesforce. He defensively he's really kind of getting guys off of them and getting things back into striking range which we know. He's absolute killer so this again. This is no indictment of yawn skills. It's you know he's beaten italy's beaten to get to the top. He's been some great names. Some people say they're past their prime. That's fine but he took care of business and And i i just think that sterling is peaking at the right time. There's a reason the closest fight. So i'm not. I'm there's no lock there's no locks now may the certainly isn't one of them. But i'm gonna go sterling by submission. I think huge huge moment for him on saturday. Casey with these two gentlemen No i got peter. Yon in new msrp hints still instill in new. Because i feel like this is the royal title. I really don't i really think instead of the out of true title. That's why i read. I really think this is going to be peter yawns night and especially after watching i saw most of his rematch with Magomed magomedov who's embellish. Right now the only guy to actually beat. Peter yawn in a decision Years ago four years ago and and peter. Jon got that wind back a couple years later in. Acp i think peter yawns Takedown dis awesome. And i think he's going to be able to things got better better cardio over over five rounds he's has a little bit more cage time recently with unfortunate for all. Joe you know having only one minute in the last year or something like that Which isn't his fault. But just how it is but no i expect. Peter yawn to actually When a clear when a clear forty nine forty nine forty nine forty seven point nine forty six four nine forty six so that that magomed loss was definitely not a loss. Yeah yeah it was like. He definitely purely on definitely won that fight. It'd be watched amalgamate of wrestle. Laura that guy is just like he just glue and he's actually he's talking about. I wish i only wish was just. Because i like to see him against other fighters i know about them and i mean that's just another crazy. Good bantamweight out there. So i picking on and still. I have literally flip flopped on this fight every day this week and when i make my final pick tomorrow it might be different than what i say right now but at this point i'm leaning more towards what casey is saying. I'm going with peter. Yon at least right this second. I don't know. I don't know why i just got that. Like peter. puree just looks like a guy that likes to break people's hearts and like enjoy it like maybe even more than retaining the title like stopping algae maine's title hopes seven years into you ufc career. I feel like you take great pride and joy in that you know what i mean. He just got that look in his eye. I think is defensive. Wrestling is going to hold up in this fight. I think he lands with some serious ferocity and i. I think things are going to get harry. Yon down the stretch. I think around five could get really interesting. I think sterling's gonna have some trouble. But they john will will hold on and get a decision win in very very close fight. Forty eight forty seven on my is That's what i think's going to happen. I can see you on winning the first three sterling running around for and then sterling making things really really dicey around five but john holts on and keeps the belts in a classic in a really good fight a fight that lives up to the. I definitely see a round where yawns just defending a choke or something. I could four minutes and we're going to be like oh and rogan's saying it's over like twenty times but not have super excited about and starting pulls it off -gratulations. I love being wrong. Oh the real winners are going to be speaking. But speaking of just a bad dude. Peter yard the article but it appears as peter yawn on a yacht or something that like i know is just like on a on a big big boat. I was like man. He just looks like that. That movie villain. I it just does this mean guy on a yacht you know and just just as it's been noculars on just i like him. He's he's getting scares me. He's a scary dude. I'm sure i'm sure someone has said it in the youtube comments but james bond yawn has bench was yeah people want. We don't want no mercy anymore. They wanted to be bond. Peter bonds john. Does he beating on lake villa. A james bond film or something like the guy being here hotel. You all the plans before you know him and balancing. There's in the smiles one peoria like he'll like he could be on a yacht but he doesn't enjoy like he has to have a yard. He doesn't enjoy the fact that he has yet. He's there and he's taking a picture not happy about it because you know his his. His competitor is evil rival. Can't have that yacht. So he got a guy i love it. We're turning him into a villain. He's a nice guy a nice guy at the of course that is going to rule. I'm really excited for that.

The lines have shifted a little bit more in the featherweight title fight. A man nunez was a minus fourteen hundred favorite as of tuesday. Some money coming in on megan anderson's minus nine hundred nunez anderson's a-plus six hundred right now so. There are some intrigue on the The megan anderson camp and ak for those who missed between the links. You stated a pretty a pretty good case on why. This fight seems to be very intriguing to you how this fight has grown on you throughout the the coming weeks day. So for those. Who missed between the links your thoughts on this featherweight championship coleman event amanda nunez the greatest women's fighter of all time arguably the greatest ever stepped foot in the octagon defending. Its megan anderson who is could be her only chance to become a ufc champion. Yes mike we have done our job of bringing that line down our vile machinations to manipulate the betting. Odds are are working. No listen look. I do or saying got brought down six to one hundred dollars still pretty big pretty big nine. Two one favourite still pretty massive. So it doesn't surprise you. Those interest coming on anderson Again look those who good i. I'm not a better. But i imagine your casual better at some. Some cash splash around saying. Hey that's that's worth throwing. What twenty bucks on if she gets the upset. The the return is is significant so That's fine lines moving so much. I don't know if there's that much real actual public confidence in In megan hamson pulling off. But it's beyond the anything can happen narrative that we have with these kind of fights or so and so has punchers chance Like there's realistic reasons to think she could win. This fight Like i have been saying. She is like size. Wise is really bigger than your average further. I i'm not saying cyborg. For example you know who just fight is like a small fighter at all But in terms of range i. It's it's a totally different beast. Only difficult thing to deal with this. This afflicts spencer's big too but this really tall really lengthy apology. And i just don't think that ameneh nunez or a lot of fighters who Women compete one forty five have had to deal with and it. She does not look like a gawky. Like tall rangy fighter. She knows how to use her length. She has real power. She's not point fighter from outside. She's not out there trying to trying to just kind of snipe away She can do that but certainly when she sees an opening to find a finnish. She's done it. She's done it many times so she has kind of power that the threat is very real at the grappling is another story altogether as we all know. It does feel like if nunez wants to take this to to the ground. She'll be able to do it. She she arrest things very much improved from when she started in the. Ufc she can impose your will in that department. But you know we'll see how Team obviously super prepared for that. Ah so we'll see we'll see if she can if she can convince newness released stand with her for a bit and have enough takedown defense to to make the fight interesting. It's she. she's really live. I think nine to one. I'll be honest. I think nine to one for nunez's still crazy. I still think that's way too high. There are some sites who still have nunez's a minus fourteen hundred favorite. There's one there's one has noon as down to a minus six fifteen so depends on you know go take a gander at some different way. I'm looking at best fight. Odds right now they have a whole list of all the different ones and that these ones are kind of all over the place but say. What are your thoughts on. Megan anderson heading into the spy. Do you consider her a either. Consider her alive. Underdog or you think she's going to get ravaged here. What side of the fence are you on I don't think she's just going to get destroyed. But i still heavily. Favor amanda nunez. I just think people like lisa. Spencer submitted megan anderson and holly home a boxer and striking specials pretty much controlled her and the ad. They've shown that one highlight of megan. Rocking holly in that fight and kind of just making her stump mobile. That's pretty much it from that fight. And then she ripped open jazz. Ghana's i with a kick that was like those freakish but even she was confused by it and then she beat people fair and square by stoppage. Amandas obviously be in a who's who of women she's the best female who's ever who's never stepped aside the optic on maybe ever in all of mixed martial arts so i only meeting it's just smash because right now james krause g. code and he's in our corner so i think he's gonna prepare her like no one else so i don't think she just goes out there and laze in can get submitted in the first round like. She did against phil spencer. But i don't. I don't see many paths to victory for megan outside of like if she rocks amanda like and just stays on and puts her away with with like punches the fence maybe by outpointing her. I don't see knocking on knocking out. Cold a ribbon. I opened again. So i did her. Best bet path to victory would be rocking her. And then just putting the foot like the gas to the floor and just rushing ourselves. That's but again. I heavily favor manliness casey. We haven't gotten. I don't think we've gotten your thoughts on this fight. We've talked about in between the links talked about on many many of show you've done profiles you've seen begin anderson you've probably been closer to her than than any of us. What are your thoughts in her. Chances to pull off one of the biggest upsets in. Ufc title fight history. Tomorrow there were need it is possible but there need to be significant improvements on her. Getting off offer back. Basically i think standing if this is appear if this is all they do twenty minutes of standing i think the coin flip i think Megan can be amended new standing. I've watched megan strike much hip pads. I've watched her move move around with other Rather relatively things is men. And i was like. Oh she look scary. She's a she's a very vicious fighter. And i've seen her up close. Caged beat the crap out of women in invicta and above also seeing beat the crap out of women to very close to Get the odds and megan has improved at Gloria ma in kansas city of james. Krause if she's made the necessary improvements this can be a very competitive fight Otherwise i think despite goes a lot like Nunez versus j. d. r. Which isn't very exciting and is going to be might be just noon as taking a megan down and controlling our underground. I actually really liked. How megan anderson sort of was reflective about in. How sheep presented herself at the press conference yesterday. I thought she just kept things very simple. She didn't get distracted by anything. She let any questions sir off the pressure of the division. She handled that very well. I thought he had short and sweet. That's what i was looking for out of her. Not trying too hard to promote fi just focusing keepings very simple and that's a very important thing with beginners because i feel like she's always been very talented but it's a confidence thing with her. It's a mental thing with her and these are things she's dealt with a lot in her life like if you went back and watched like old interviews with her. She's she's bullied as a kid. And you know coming over to the states and trying this thing kind of getting a late start later start others and just having image issues and like all these different things about her letting the negativity of anime fans like affect her in a really bad way putting her in rough spots mentally Seems to be a much better spa at that. Like she's over. A lot of that and having james krause in her corner and seeing the success of gloria may of that. Sometimes that stuff is is very attachable like you just you just gravitate towards it and again. I'm i'm not saying. Megan innocent is alive dog by any stretch. I'm going with the man newness to win this fight. But i think this fight is closer than a lot of people. Think it's gotta be. I think gonna come out of there with her with her head held high. She might not be the champion. But i think it's one of those performances you're like damn that was. That was pretty good. That was pretty good. Her stock is still going to rise in a loss. That's going to happen. So anybody picking the upset tomorrow aka. no no. I'm not gonna. I'm not gonna make that jump. I i look at the thing. It's it's not even the it's not. I'm looking before the spencer fight. It's it's what ital-. Amanda one. Be judy our fight. That really has Thinking i just don't know how amerson would counter that if if nunez's ice go wrestling heavy i was. I know that's not everyone's favorite case small gauge which will be exactly amanda advantage. Yes i know that. Gdr rematch is not everyone's favorite noonan's performance. But she kind of showed that thing that champions sometimes not your best day can you go to your e scale and you go to your see scale to win the fight. And i mean her. Herpes skill. look like a scale. At times with wrestling again it wasn't always pretty A gr's toughest. Hal opponents so she did what she had to win that fight. And i think Jimmy me has better take probably take on events than an esa mission defense than megan begin anderson. So that's my only reason. But but i'll say this We talked about it so much that if the upset were to happen it would be massive. I'm not questioning. I'm not gonna go. I'm not willing to if like knocked manu outback. Well we saw coming. no i. it'd be crazy it'd be crazy. I don't know who on the level of you know like a holly home ronda rousey thing. Which in retrospect a lot of people if you if you talk a lot of supposedly you know smart fans like oh yeah. I knew that was going to happen. I'm like maybe you thought she had a chance. It was that was crazy. Mom what happens so this'll be the same way. I think it would be a look back on it and say well you know that means a good fighter and this is why she wind and we talked about this before the postal department. But you know it's visas are there the peace ticket going. I'm going to buy a submission. An another chance mission all right so nunez across the board Before we may on picking as. But if if i if i'm going to put money on the winner i would put money on megan because i think most of those lines you said if we're just going to pick him. I'm going newness nunez by decision. That's i know but on the betting line though there was so many megan. I thought that's saw that's dog pass. I mean i wouldn't touch this fight with a ten foot pole but it's dogar pass no doubt about it Lasting for move on and talk about the main event we keep this as simple as possible. True or false. Jose young this will be the last women's featherweight title fight in history false. I think there might be one more. But no i don't think saturday's women's division. Casey is if nunez wins. The only way it stays around is if nunez decides. She's not biting at thirty five anymore and she's gonna do recipe Forty five so then it was. It would be the newness division rather than forty five division. That's the only way stays around with a newness when if millions and yes it'll be it'll be around for love a longer make a nah. There's still some some blood to be squeezed from that stone. Come on they'll they'll they'll find a reason to make a what it's amanda. Who said who said that as long as she's she's active she plans to defend the belt even just to stay busy. She want to have that thing around. Give give ucf An eye on another headliner option and nfl. megan win. Certainly she would shoot either. Get the rematch with immediate ramesh nunez. Or the winner of the felicia spencer Danielle will fight. I guess what seems like an odd thing to say but it seems like they can do so. Now there's titles are props. This one has has the bare minimum enough value for the. Oc to keep it around. I don't know if kayla would fight. Amanda will g or vice versa. Because they training i mean maybe if the money was right i just don't see it happen to the eighteenth. Got like ten thousand fighters. I know that that that that Camp is very splintered camps within camps. At so. i'm not sure how best buddies they are. Yeah well we'll see what happens. What would would be a brilliant move is if after new if nunez wins afterward. She's given her post fight. Speech with joe rogan. The lights go out and they come back. On and pam sorenson is in the and she. I mean she should be in the afc. Anyways that's a plate we. We should've seen already but there we go. He's going like who's that. Who is this champ goes. Come on we haven't seen in a while cova she's gonna she's gonna show up like tito ortiz and impact. Just stand there with their arms folded. People are gonna do. This is a weird and then all of a man is gonna be like no never going to be like what is going on right now. And then they're gonna put a mccain. Put the camera on pan for an ungodly amount of uncomfortable minutes. Just like tito. Ortiz weight has has. Anyone actually asked. Amanda this is the most awkward post victory celebration. Ever when she beat felicia spencer and then she offered the belt to felicia spencer. Did you see that video right. it's like you know. Amanda amended the nice thing but just the weirdest thing is a. Yeah you know what. I'm talking about psych. i haven't seen it go back. It's it's it's unique personality. Yeah i was too busy watching our enemy fighting media day. Scrums aka wasn't watching on. I'm just getting up taking the heat up by self and trying to place it somewhere. I doing your job. Michael heck as a machine more than pick as a monster. Okay let's go to the main event yamba mehovic just won the title not long ago. Light-heavyweight is an interesting division of course but his first title defense against global. Share it against the middleweight. Champion of the world. Israel out of sonya. Who made wait two hundred and one half pounds with a box of pizza in his hands. Not one ninety three not one ninety not one ninety five in just over two hundred pounds and has i don't think it has any significance to the fight itself but is he's got a chance to make some history here. Join that shortlist of simultaneous dual champions. Jose you had the chance to speak with israel outta sonya. You got to take his mind off the fight. What did you thank ban you around the man talking. Some anime seems like he was enjoying himself. What have you seen from outta sonya as he heads into the biggest fight of his career You'd have no idea. This man is about to move up twenty pounds to fight another champion is. He's not he's even he's even said like hey i'm gonna get in the sauna. I'm still going to eat clean. He's not he so he's not just showing up not cutting like he's getting his body right For the by heavyweight division. He's just not bulking up. He's just coming in ten pounds. A little maybe ten twenty pounds every but not into five so. But you'd have no idea. This man was about five for a ufc championship. He's probably one of the more calm athletes. I've ever been around in the like if he's not calm or if he's nervous at all he doesn't show it because he is stone cold right now and it's it's very impressive But yeah he just loses confidence in yawn oozes confidence too so i it's fake. I like both individuals people but they're both awesome fighter. So i think it's a lot more difficult than people are making nahla people just kind of pick easy to win just because he's busy and he's been undefeated known shown any signs of how to beat him yet and yon at one point was what like two and three in the usc. So risi bias. But i just. This is a really tough fight to pick from me. I would agree. Ak we got right now. It's minus two twenty-five for addison. Yeah plus 175 comeback on mehovic money is squeaking in on mahovic to off this upside and obviously he's a very live underdog in this fight. You saw these guys stare off twice. And i know you know we're not fighters so we can't really pick these things apart. But did you see anything in those face offs that made you think like one way or the other were did anything surprise. You like obviously me get anderson and demanded nunez squared off. We're like damn like we knew me you'll be taller. But she's like way taller when these two guys went face to face. Did anything like pop in your mind. Did you think anything of it or was it just like that. This kind of what. I expected to to one disrespect to to one favorites Israel at a sonya the disrespect for you and again. I say this summer was picked against yawn like six times last seven point something wrong every time so so i know first hand what it means to disrespect the on it stupid about it. How did john at the press conference. Oh get two questions. The main the the aside for the main event got two questions and a thirty minute. Press conference disrespect. How how did john antic introduce the man who the car was built around. And he wasn't talking about john bloviate. Is that what he said. Yeah oh i love. I love that guy who really the eight side. It's pretty clear. I dunno body language wise. I slept break that down. I think the size thing surprise. I saw some people saying like. Oh my gosh. They looked like the exact same size may beyond it is s model. I don. I mean i think people knew at least as far as height height goes he'd be he'd bigger or at least as tall as love it. So that that one's freising he did look a little more. I don't even want to know. If i want to say muscular a little more puffy as a he looked like he was carrying extra weight that he would normally cut. You know he he. He was he that he wasn't just drained out as he might be at one hundred eighty five pounds so it wouldn't surprise me in that sense but i do think a lot of people who thought like oh man. He's going you know when this when the one ninety three rumors came out. He'll that he's gonna look so skinny now. He looks solid. He looked like a solid two hundred. Two hundred and two. If anyone's watching is he's embedded and all that stuff dudes went on a lot of baggy clothes. I think harvest remember when tyson fury was on the stage with john wilder and he would just wear the baggies close. Imagine with you don't wanna show outfit. He was then when he gets on the scale. People were like holy crap. This guy lost two hundred pounds and got him shape. I think it's a calculated move and you say three and then shows up solid. I think is he is really one of the guy who's excels the game beyond the game as it were like. We talked about yawn being calm. Great and that's what works for him. yawns should become. He's got that sort of dry humor and interviews and let's stick with that. You wouldn't wanna seem game zone. Is i feel like he needs to be up to something which is why earlier this week when people was like everyone jumped on the one nine hundred. Do you know what he loved. People jumping in the one nine three thing he was probably scrolling found laughing laughing laughing laughing. And and that's why that works for him. That's what keeps him. Engaged in the match keeps his head straight You know in the days of the up to fight because if you if you just think about absolutely now when the You can do that with with orange protocols. You're going to go crazy thinking what the fight so. Some people deals differently on. I mean i know yawns family is there As his wife was there on a bench great and is he again. He's got a he's got a troll a little bit that's just how he does. It's not even necessarily to get into. John's head is just to keep up busy so the one nine three was always a bit of a gag. Bit of a send up Hope you'll realize that That when he does stuff. And even jose says wearing the baggy clothes. It's just kinda. It's a little bit of games as germany so good at that i. I'm not saying that. That has a major effect on fight night but it is. I think what makes him So confident in what makes him sort of one of the factors that makes him the best that can be on fight. Night is getting all this stuff out of the way. And then when the fight rolls around that mr streamline strictly business let me ask you this case because when antic was on what the heck. I said i felt like was just kind of flying under the radar but the closer the fights been getting to saturday. I feel like more. Respect has come his way. An annex said something that was really interesting he thinks the most under appreciated storyline heading into this fight is odd assange quest for all time greatness. He's got a chance to come to division champion and join that shortlist. But i feel. I don't feel like people are talking about it as much heading into tomorrow than they did for connor in sokoto in noon as and daniel cormet like i feel like it's not it's just because it's happened so many times not a lot but that it's like the fifth or sixth. It's like the fifth time it's happened like we've seen before. Do you feel like that's why this is not getting discussed as much as the others is. Because it's not john jones i mean yawns the champ but if we're going to do with true ranking of the top two a fibers right now in the afc you use still put john number one and that's the problem and that's kind of that's a very smart power move by john jones. Leave the division but really. You're still the champ. I mean you know what. I'm saying. So i really think yeah. I think that's i think you can't talk about the two of i about talking about john jones and since he's not part of this this fight at all pretty much other than some tweets. it sounds weird but he's going to be a paper double division to division champ. You know 'cause john. John i mean if if is tamar. Where's it gonna hit. Where's it going to hear john jones blah blah. Just you know yapping on twitter he's gonna be meeting. Be me you know. So yeah you'll have the two bells is. He won't care. But i think yeah. It's just going to be this low astro on it. You know kinda like when my houston rockets won two world tiles. After jordan was out of the league for two years. You know there was almost no well. Yeah you want. Because jordan is in the playoffs in the second one. Whoa yeah there's no. There's no asterisk there no no. I don't even that for thirty friday. He came he came back and lost in the eastern conference finals. Whatever take the rocket when he was no asterisk. And that's why. Bill john jones thing hanging over us and so two ovalles bell is just doesn't have the same anymore because it just got. Vacated if dominic reyes had beaten john jones dyke we most he did and then yawn beat. Ray then it'd be different story but it's it's like look would john. Jones be favored in a match up with other guys. Yeah probably so. I mean again. Just you just have to ask yourself that even even damn cormet damn cormier now but A year before retirement. I think he'd be favored against both guys. So it's like that's already two names that people kind of think of when they think of the best tool five johnstown cormon and and that's that's not fair again. That's not has nothing to do with john. Just timing It's just timing right. So is if you're trying to explain why there's just that weird kind of That that show lack of shine on this one for being a championship fight. It is explainable on it. I think a lot of field and it kind of goes back to what i said. What about peter. Yon about the the bantamweight belt. Even though he's defending it it kind of feels like this is the real world championship. Because he's now the to number one guys rather than auto getting a a courtesy title shot. So jose obviously is he is a is a rising star is one of the biggest stars in the store right now and with a win here. He's off to the races. Joins gets to see that big table for sure. What if you don wins. We talked with this between the links. If yom behove which goes out there and beats israel out of sonya. Does he get the rub. Does he get the rub. do you think he becomes. I'm not gonna say he's gonna become this massive star but does he at least take a giant step closer to becoming a star It's clearly a massive step But he's he's going to have to fight if he if yawn beats israel of sonya is probably gonna fight club share a neck so who knows how big of how much that will sell. How much interest that will drop like. Would if easy be like would you put yang. Yang was fighting. Glover i met people would be much. Would be clamoring for the argument. Would be like. Oh how come. John sterling isn't the main event over yawn over john. Mehovic ungloved share like that would be people. Would i can guarantee people would say that so it would be a massive step. I just think it would matter what happens in fight after And if he can if he can get john jones interests in fighting again but he said he has no interest in going up to have yamaha and said he has no interest in going up to the heavyweight yet he wants to clean out his division. So tiago santos. He's lost to ratchet has looked awesome. deserves that shah. Johnny walker is only getting better. I know he got hurt. Or got covert or whatever so He's less work to do but beating israel out of sonya before is he fights john jones would be a huge deal for sure. I still can't believe is he's only thirty. One years old like this man is just getting started. That's a scary thing. Especially if he wins tomorrow night which is interesting. But we're trying to find like different ways to look at this fight that haven't been discussed because i feel like this fights been discussed since it was signed. And we've been broken so many different angles but we're going to do the moneymaker right now. A pick jose. Young's we begin with you. How does this thing play out. The show ends tomorrow night man but this was a big octagon the twenty five foot or whatever. It is the one that was on foot island. I would very much favour israel out of sonya d. c.'s. Right in his assessment that small octagon will play a factor in plays. It's a huge benefit to yongle. Hove which is he has much less room to maneuver and do as do his thing. In there and guy Reason was gonna be able to set more traps which is probably gonna take daniel schorr. Daniel us weren't foregoes. He's fought in the greatest of all time inside a tiny octagon and then john animated good point like he says small octagon heavily favor restless from watching octagon side. Because you can just shove them into the fence immediately after like two steps To work towards it inside the small octagon he said if in if yawn can just this was all like he was just chat with us off the cameras like if he goes beyond grabs him in his whole against the fence and just uses his physical strength to just big brother is who's the smaller skinnier fighter than. He could easily see jamil just winning a five round decision like stupid dc. He just kind of clinched him up and held him in worked his body. And everything spot. I don't think that happens. I think is one of the highest one of the highest fight accusing the game. I think he's on him cared for that. So i favour israel out of sonya but it is like fifty one forty nine. I think john is an awesome fighter. I just think the smell octagon makes this much more interesting. And i'm actually glad this is in a small octagon because we get that that factor in to see how he handles it against a hot a power punch beyond but fighting power puncher in holocaust and beating robert whitaker the way he did and surviving. It's kelvin. there's he every question. I've had his. He like what if you find a guy like this. What if he fights a guy like this what if he gets in this scenario he's proven that he can handle it and we've seen yawn lose. We've seen him stumble. Seen him succumb to fighters that aren't the same caliber On so i think in two thousand and twenty one in march two thousand twenty one. I favor israel but it is very close casey. Your selection who wins who has the show end is he takes it. I think he's gonna gonna finish on I e around But let me just say this. I'm looking at my previous picks man. I'm bad at picking fights. I've picked against him in his last five fights. The only one i got right was geogra- santa's by peaked against him against the rock. Hold picked up against against the coroner's and dominic reyes so but on the other side. I am nine. Oh picking izzy fight. Every time everytime i picked him. But now i just think These really really really special fighter. And i think john is a very very good fighter and i think is he is he's gonna win. I think he's going to be some apart. I think he's just he's going to be his. Timing's better is famous. Better and i think He's gonna just yawn with his kind of flurries. He's kinda slow and wide. I think he's gonna get pops and get counter. Pretty hard coming in at some point and invite get to virata sonya ak. Where are you at make it three. I think that this fight will for the most part take place on the feet. I think i think we'll be able to get to the ground ended up against the fence on a few occasions. But i have a lot of faith in Out of sonya as defensive grappling to get out of those situations to turn things in their striking battle. And that's the case. There's nobody. I don't think there's anybody in the afc beats israel at a sonya and the striking fight as striking. You know primarily striking baseball. I i don't think so. I don't think the best version of rob whitaker can do it I think that rematch will happen someday. Out still pick at his anya. I don't think Jumble hopes and do it. I don't think john jones to do it Mytalk before about who would be favored if they fought again and that's of if he if john jones handled that fight did like jacko santos fight like wanna make a statement and show off k. One bones i think at assigned you would beat him and so i certainly he can be bitch so i'm going to go at a sign by knockout. I think this this one. They'll be trouble spots and there'll be moments where hobeish looks good. We moments where he stolen heavy leather and has a Literally kind of scrambling and jumping away And being just super defensive but he's gonna find the range of some point and he's gonna start sticking the hovis and he's going to do enough damage. Nah i don't think we have one big shop as a bunch of shots they're gonna rock gonna see. Tko victory for At asante sometime after the third in the third or not. Because they're not before gentlemen. I'm going with jon mahovic. I think he gets it done unanimous decision. This is not going to be the kind of performance going to gain him a lot of fans like i know we just asked like could this be a star making for him if he goes out there and stops busy early and dozen spectacular fashion. Yeah that could happen. But i don while that's a definite possibility because of that legendary polish. I think we'll have. It's gonna find a very smart fight here. I think him becoming a dad is going to be a big factor The news in play the rope The legendary row. That is back in our lives important. You could flip flop if you want to join to join team. Say i said third his third round tilting with the suicide rope or whatever it not in the fourth round we gained. Actually i'm looking at this again again. I'm looking at this from a. Here's here's twenty bucks. What are you doing their perspective. Plus there's there's like legit value in yamba mehovic. But if i'm betting on this fight i'm not laying minus twenty out of sonya going up away class and fighting on behove which for a championship going up twenty pounds. I just. I just don't feel confident doing that. Like if i had any kind of money twenty dollars is twenty dollars like. That's that's a big deal groceries for the kiddo that some school lunches right there i can't be just throwing twenty bucks at anything but i could see a pretty return for yamaha which i think. I think there's value there. I think he gets it done. I don't think it's going to be one of those performances. The dana w- going gonna go to the press conference in praise. Maybe that's why he's in sunshine a weird mood this week. John just gonna win a decision. I think don't want a decision. I think he's gonna have. He's gonna get in trouble at some points. But i think it's going to get a raise as the end of the day. Forty nine forty six gets a decision that we're not gonna like very much. The master of the upset. The spoiler yacht. You know we we said on the show this morning. it's unbelievable. He doesn't have nickname. He's the spoiler i mean. Yeah if they've rejoin going just by his uc career. The man is the spoiler one again. I think the majority of the majority of spices the underdog. What was the only one that he wanted he he. He was the favourite against patrick comments. It's no way. That's the only one i know. He's our favorite against patrick. Cummins any lost one jacker against you right. Yes he was. Just what i thought. Okay and he won that one but yeah otherwise he was underdogs lou brock hold under dr aniston underdog dominic grass. And there we go through tomorrow mazing. It is the story and the ufc is is amazing to me. Just because he's main eventing as side on one of the lme stack probably is gonna pay per view of the year and he just being honest as a promoter standpoint. He was broadened to lose against ray as he was born to lose his anderson to lose against jock array. Is brian lose against grotto. There's no way you wanted him to win. Just from a money standpoint but we are. And i think it's the same situation right now. The ufc as far as selling reviews won't assign you to win this fight so we'll see what happens. I love this story. I wish i wish there was. This was a wish. Ufc brought back prime time for really compelling story because i want to know more about you. I think he's an interesting character. Like nobody's ks. W days i i was doing low bit from Think shaheen's article from athletic about you know him growing up poor and poland under a communist regime and things like that. I want to know that about him. And i don't i just know i know very little about him other than he loves his wife and he seems very nice and we walked out. Yeah that's about it. Did you see the embedded his wife talking about him like they used to dance the dance lessons and she i think she's she's a bit of a bit of a dancer and she tried to get into it and then i think they asked her like a c- a good dancer. Just harassers just know terrible. Isn't that what one word like now. He's terrible stick to fight Man yeah there's yeah there's a lot there. I love the fight. I love the whole car. The cards really. Good arrest of the main card. Islam macho versus drew dober-. We got tiago. Santos coming back against alexander racket. Of course dominic versus casey kenny. We got caterpillar song. Joseph ben evita's versus ask ask. Her up is a ridiculous fight. Of course ask her out. The one guy out of the thirty one who had a hiccup on the scales weighed in at one. Twenty seven five will go forward. Twenty percents joseph ben evita's kaikoura france versus brosio bonds. Serene a mandalay. Moshe versus lavinia sousa ten jordan. Espinosa that you have see debut of carlos albert we got brady vs matthews manage versus crews. John's versus battista. This is unbelievable.

Four thirty eastern. Casey do the math one. Yeah about yeah. We're on five fifteen. We'll go an extra fifteen.

We'll throw a couple of the guys keep mine. The raging panda julia. Avalon will be tomorrow. We'll have a high level fighter coming in tomorrow.

Vox over under number of fight of the night bonuses with a line set at one and a half well. I am pretty confident that islam is getting a bonus. No what i know. I know your dover wins and even dober- wins and ninety seconds. It'll be fight of the night. That's hilarious that's really funny So i guess what scott his asking is will we see to fight of the night bonuses or was he won fight of the night into performance bonuses or no fight of the night. What do we think. Casey i think he's going to be one of those four performance bonuses type of just because you're so many fights on this card and i just filled there's gonna be just too many the likelihood of four great finishes over you know too good finishes in one good fight. I think think rather give out four bonuses for so no finite bonuses. I think this is going performance. Tomorrow man feels a up out the piggy bank a little bit. This is a giant giant card. It's giving a little bit more than fifty grand. I think they'd get. I think they've been doing the same fifty grand for the last eight nine years. It's like one inflation guys raises. Raise it up if you raise the pay per view prices. Let's raise those bonuses up mr white. That's all i'm saying or get rid of the bonus system altogether but that's a whole other discussion and just increased just increase that dan base pick. This seems like an easy and easy under Like you said. I can't imagine the we thought we talk about how many great athletes are on a card. But it does like those certainly be lisa enough. Finish on there for them to want to You know handout performance bonuses which is their preference so for me for me to take the over over what had to be like five hundred plus five hundred or something. I think. I think. I i can't imagine i think it's unlikely but yeah you give me plus one hundred hundred odds. Yeah maybe maybe over. But i think i think under the easy favorites ed Minus two hundred on the other. Yeah i think. I think we'll get like a normal bonus structure fight of the night to performance bonuses. I have a hard time thinking. John sterling fight of the night tomorrow. Maybe it's just 'cause i've over hyped in my head. And i hope i don't let everybody down if people just fall along everything i say. Hopefully you don't. I don't want anybody. Santos ratchet darkhorse horse. We haven't even talked by god. Who is it brady. And matthew's reading that fight rules to agree. Those those are the two i think. I think we're talking about. Because i think i think it's going to be one of those things where santos fights like he did against. We could get like the jimmy. Manno does fight wars is cast for five minutes and they still got a fight of the night bonus even though santos crunch like knock them out so i think that like rachi santos has all the makings of the like that to thank you for reminding me about that. Manohla santos fight. I forgot how i kind of that. I found in the back of my brain and my god. I remember that was the santa's reluctantly fought at light heavyweight against eric anders right like he reluctantly because he was a backed up and then someone else like like honors anders was the backup and then the original guy got hurt so then science knows Heavyweight don't have to wait and then he just one and they want and he just kept waiting so he stayed. It's like calvin gasoline. He just moved up in his loop. Win it well. You can make an argument for like any of these fights could be performance. Fight like even trevon jones. Mario battista is a ridiculous by like. Those guys are gonna throw bolos song. You don phillips is ridiculous. That is ridiculous. fight Will move ahead. Thoughts on donna cruz versus casey kenny. Jose young's of cruiser to win on saturday. I think he could easily call a top ten name like although possibly request a garbrandt. Rematch your thoughts on john's question. Yeah if he if cruz wins he has every right to call it a top. Ten i- tj kind of removed himself from being the greatest bannon win all time. So i just think cruises the fan whatever by default because he was at one point the best ever held all the records in the only real time loss before like he got his title taken away from him to get your title taken away because of injuries in comeback bt to dillashaw is so impressed with him. Also tj cruises. One of the greatest fights. I've ever seen. I think that's not enough list. Greatest fights ever. I was on fox sports one. No less wasn't even a pay per view. So that if i take place on thousand cold january boston i remember that i remember how cold it was. It was snowing when the fights when we got out from the fights. I remember my the pressure medium high to me. I was not in the president's office even worse seats booking your casey that was I believe that was the deflate gate patriots nights if memory serves me correctly against the colts with a patriot chace annihilated. I'm i'm pretty sure it was that it was one of those cards in boston because i remember it being very cold. Yeah i think it was that but games as the boston. They used to go to boston. Every january like they did mcgregor seaver. They did in ghana. Mio they did dillashaw cruise but then they've they've obviously they've gone in the summer for like sonnen shogun but for january was always january chicago. Where like the to fox cards at the beginning of the year clues. Lynn's if you call that. Although i would just i just want us up so much i would love to send cruisers aldo losers. Marlin if they wanna do like frank as ours taking time off cruise frankie edgar like on game for but coupon rematch garment. Probably not. because i did god rest probably gonna find although a memorial your flight attendant. But that's another story g. Yeah if cruz wins ten for sure for sure. Maybe we just off a big win. I am so curious about this fight. Because i'm on the well. I don't know about the whole key. Peterson thing but i did not like the stoppage in the dominant coups sudafed. I know he got he got dropped and everything but she's as part of the like to stop so actually i don i. I still don't know if we have peak dominant crews. I know i know. Ak didn't but you guys watch the media day dominant. We all watched it. Everyone watched it. It was he was talking about it. He said like the what really backfired in that fight was in. I wasn't even aware of this. Like no final thoughts about the the warm rooms are usually in the arena. So you can go from the warm ups right out. The war rooms were in the fighter hotel and then the shuttle over to the arena for corinthian reasons and stuff begin in jacksonville before pseudo fight. That was crews. did not time it. So he warmed up god's the arena and had started to cool down all right and then so he went fine. He just wasn't prepared at all. He said he sounds like an excuse. I lost he's lost. I shouldn't put myself in that situation to begin with. But he's like that one hundred play. A factor is he just didn't time warm ups right because he's also like he said he is style of fighting very like egos goes with the flow like with the crowd. Like you can slip in. And there's when you take that out. A lot of factors played against dominant cruiser. That fight anderson will be anyway so it doesn't matter i think cruise is a lot better than showing against the doodo. I agree that. That's what i'm hoping. I'm hoping we still. I'm hoping that. I think dominic crews. He's here's a low talk too much pride to come out to to show up for by like this and not be the dominant cruise we expect. I don't think. I also more which is really you know what i didn't like that fight one was originally booked. I know you like to mike. But i loved. I think over time. I've i've kinda grown into it so i'm very excited about and that's just a super interesting matchup like it's really interesting and it doesn't we know it's on a rankings thing. It's just a it's kind of an old school fight. Where you have a you just have a really good stylistic matchup with wiley vet taken on the surging up and comer. I love when they do that. Stuff but Let me ask you this. Ak is dominic cruz. Rick flair circa two thousand six or seven right now like if he feeds casey kenny great. He continues on but does he fight until he loses and then he moves on because he's got a million options the commentary he's got you always making instructional videos. That are very popular. The guy he's a very downs a guy gets it. Thank you fight silly loses. This is definitely a depends on the method depends on the method. I i think he loses decision. He'll keep kinda he'll keep cranking on but if he's like knocked if it's another it's another quick stoppage that's the kind of thing that's very frustrating for him. I think i think again like we talked with the pseudo thing. Obviously not vote that tall. The controversy with keith peterson. But i feel like if he does get rocked again and gets hurt again. He's going to think about it. he's nothing about. I could see him losing like two or three more decisions. Maybe sticking around which i know sounds a little bit sad but i can see that happening but Yeah meno method definitely matters and but it doesn't matter because i'm thinking of the way and i. I don't know if we're doing the thing. I like kenny a lot. I think kenny is. We talked about the future contender for a long time. But this is one of those. There's levels to this game fights and six who knows as even six months from now. Would i pick kenny. Maybe you know. Maybe there's enough development. That time i think right now. I don't think he's quite catching. I don't think he's quite rising fast enough. I don't think cruises declined that much that That i would go with kenny but Yeah i like. I like crews by decision. That's that's such a compelling gosh you guys are getting me really excited for it and like i said it'd be on. Espn so a lot of a lot of balls on it. O is going to be at mac that magnates is going to be the i love you and then Kenny is gonna turn donna cruises lights out. I don't think we see that on saturday. I think that could happen. Sunday but No i think I think critics are. He wants all the other things he has going on like. You said obvious he's great. Analysts has other business interesting. Seems like a guy who'd be smart with his money. You know i was. I don't know that for a fact but seems like he would be so yeah he he has options but i think he feels he still super competitive. I don't think he feels his loss to step it all and wants to ground. Can i throw a question. I kinda the answer to this but would dominate. If dominic clues takes a bad loss tomorrow night will you get the jd as offering treatment and ufc. Too much of a commentary. Business connection i think on the outside. I think they'll kind of let them do it at his own pace. It's the guys either. Maybe into liz. It genius has been brutally knocked out like many like berlin by over five top. Five guys like no you were using knocked out by. You know back at the line dude. I think that's really important to note too. Oh no that's what i'm saying. It's it's health conscious stuff more than anything else. I mean if dominick cruz like gets knocked out by alexander volkov. That's a different story but feed goes out there and loses. Tko to casey kenny. Yeah that's that's a different thing. But if i mean if casey just lights him up and knocks him unconscious. That's a different story. I just don't see that happening at one. Thirty five to two crews. I just don't see it wasn't. John didn't jd as do commentary for the portuguese market. A bit. i'm not sure. I mean overdo it. I thought jd. As like a few. I want to do the english commentary. I just love him. Jd talk of anything. He's so bright. Bright yes i think another answer. The question of uses big. I think that should be no tossed out there. You know think you'll get one once a narrative. Yeah it's it's definitely narrative like you have to think at this point in his career because he just the way he presented himself like. I want to be the very best in the world. I'm going to be the best fighter in the world. Casey kennedy seems like a very good litmus test to figure that question out like in his mind. There's there's no doubt about it that he's thinking about if i can't be casey kenny. Like should i be doing this anymore. And that's not up to us. Yeah it's up to us to answer that question for him but it has to be something he thought about for took his pen out in the silent contract and i think we think the dominant cruisers that type of fighter that he would not walk out into that cage unless he still believes that he is one of the elite bantamweights in the world so That's why you know despite this hudo loss and no injuries. I i really expect a good showing dominic Saturday night i'm picking crews to and it's not really a skillset thing i mean i think crews can with his skill set in the way he moves can beat a lot of guys i think he's just sharper mentally. I think we saw casey. Kenny isn't the most mature guy on earth with some of the things that he said in the buildup to this fight. I know he wasn't all there hanging out with molly in those guys but you could tell there is some chinks in his armor so to speak in the mental game and i like case again. He's a great guy of interviewed a million times. He's great he's very He's he's a good dude but he made a mistake there. And there's some holes there that's a that's very presence in my opinion so i think cruz just has the whole package. He does enough to get it. Done anybody picking case again tomorrow sure. I'll pick them to go there. You go there's is way arizona boy sticking together guide. They're both boys. They're both their a big win. Full again and again there was a reporter at the media day that brought that up at the media day and ask them both like. Hey you're both from tucson. You should watch the video. Kk to good. It's a good media. They're not gonna do it out of right. No i'm making a statement. We have a channel youtube fighting. No being subscriber diva comment may fighting dot com. Yeah yeah we have a website channel channel to channel view. it has A little over like if you add nine hundred thousand two hundred thousand. We have that this around those that amount of subscribers jose propose china embarrassed me a preview. Show to goodness please. It's not difficult. It's not difficult to be honest now. Everyone's picking many so many numbers like nine hundred thousand. That's exactly how many numbers that is. Because i can't do the map. The one enough we abbas we have subscriber. We have the same as scribner's as people that showed up for the toronto raptors parade. That helps that helps. I thought you think going to take a dig if anything you're reminding me of of me being the freight and fuel are except our subscribers or organized how to stand in straight line how many Championship pretentious to the celtics happened the last like thirty years thirty. Yeah no go back to the thirty thirty now now. Who can't do math is we'll we have the same. We have one h. Wow okay your mic. A stew saying bad words like boo make. Sure i'll make sure. Ak we go see that that brand new hit movie in two thousand twenty two raptors pride because they have such historical significance that They're gonna make a movie about him. Unlike class got to eat. The boston celtics media. It's going along ago doing anything else. They were getting. We take the rest of the questions. I listen if you guys go on the patriot watching this you will see a stream already up for the qna. What i would recommend you do is go onto that stream right now and start leaving questions in their lead them in there get a headstart jump right on end because we're going to have forty five minutes to just pick stuff apart we get a top fifteen bantamweight in the world joining us. It's going to be a lot of fun. It's going to be a lot of fun. You have c. Two fifty nine goes on tomorrow. I mean this is a big event. I'm wearing my fate or sweater.

I mean, and he just became famous you way we're famous than we were on runs, undefeated runs, who was I calling? If. Twenty one to know how do I keep this. Your mom. Hello, I gotta tell you, you know, she still watches you on TV, but she said that she said, Charles, I like you. I like you lot and you were, but then she said, but I love the shack. Yeah. Okay. For that. Hi, ladies and gentlemen. This Gino Auriemma have basketball coach at the university of Connecticut, welcome to holding court, which you know Auriemma our podcast today, the number one, legendary voice of the New York Yankees John sterling, who for the last thirty plus years has been behind the mic of every single New York Yankees game. So whether you're a Yankee fan or you're not a Yankee fan, you'll be a fan of what John sterling has to talk about. And the way he talks about his job, the Yankees, baseball, etc. Etc. Enjoy. We were talking about. You know, almost like you're talking about a culture, you know. You know, coaching here at Connecticut and the the, the number of years of success over and over and over again. And you know your comment about, well, you know, it's you recruit really good players, which is true, but having players is is not enough. And as you were talking, I'm thinking it's a little bit like the Yankees. Actually, it's a lot like the he's in that you want you set that that that that standard. And once you've established a certain culture, even when you get good player, sometimes it doesn't work. But generally speaking, it's as much the culture as it is the players that the end up being the reason for long term success you've been there long enough. What do you think. So I don't think there's any question the Aftab, a winning culture. And I think when players come to the Anki is not all now, but when players come to the Yankees, they know the tradition is they wanna buy into this is their chance to be with a winner. And if you win New York, you know that's a great place to win. Now, if you don't play well and you lose not a great place to play to lose. Right. I think it's, I think it's a great thing to have that culture going in and maybe make it easier for the players to buy into. You know, when you say this is one of the things I I love talking about. You know, when I'm recruiting kids, I say to them all the time. Look, this is like Broadway, you know, coming to connect pro. You know, if if you're freighted the pressure. So my daughter was trying to get on on the stage and she spent six months in New York and then realize I'm not good enough. Okay. You shooting? No disrespect, but she didn't go to Kansas City or Cleveland, or you know, she went to where the best performers go perform and Connecticut, basketball. If you, if you're if you wanna be big on the biggest stage, this is it if you play well in New York, everybody in America knows it can play poorly in New York. Everybody in America knows it. True. So how how if you found the players that handle those two things and some doing some don't. What do you think the differences. Second question. You know the people like Derrick, jeeter and Mariana, Robert. I'm taking the best. I think they have the ability that they're not afraid to fail as so it enables them to put their best foot forward. I mean, they know they have town so they, you know, believe they're going to succeed and they're not afraid to fail if they don't succeed. I think that's, you know, obviously, very, very important. You know, basketball is is is much tougher. I don't mean to tell you basketball, I think you know that, but basketball suffer because there you really have to interact with teammates on the floor. You know, you have to make the extra pass. You have to give up the ball. You have to not just work hard on defense, but cover for your man. If they're man gets gets by. So in baseball, it's such as. Such a selfish sport, you know that no guy goes, I say, this all the time on the air. No one goes up. There wants to make out, you know, even if the company softball games and no one wants to make out, they may swing too hard right at home, run it, pop it up, but in basketball as a team game, and you have to play together and the guys like jeeter or or Mariano. And now Aaron judge, they're very much team players and they'll do whatever they can to help their team win. And you know some people get that and other people don't. The. The interesting thing about Yankee fans one when you travel the world and I have and I'm sure you've been a lot of places the you are certain that you're not going to have to be there very long. I don't care what city it is in America or any country in the world. You don't have to be there very long before you see someone with the New York Yankees. And it's the most incredible thing ever. When you got this job, were you aware of just how big this thing is. Well, Gino I was aware because I grew up in Manhattan and I was a Yankee fan and my friends react fans, and and it was a time when the Yankees, absolutely one all the time. And so, but I wasn't aware, you know, when you're a kid when you're a fan there, your fan and you root for the team. But when I finally got the Yankees, I was nineteen eighty nine. And you know, I realized that this is a little different. You know, in in Atlanta, I was in Atlanta before during the Hobson Braves, and you'd have you know, one guy with a log should have one guy from the constitution travel with the team. Well, in New York, is that different? And so so you, you know, it's different right away without question, you know, it's different. You know, I I grew up in. Grew up in Philadelphia area, and you know you, you long-suffering Philly's fan, you know, for years and years, you know, as a ten year old, I was listening on transistor radio as the Phillies blew the six and a half game Lee with, you know, ten games to play and. And you know, you're always, you know, you're not New York and you, you just know it. And there's just something about the New York Yankees in the same thing with the New York Knicks and. And it's funny because my brother and I who's little younger, we decided to be American League fans of one team each, and he took the Baltimore Orioles, and they happen to have Frank Robinson and boo Powell and they had the great staff. Yeah, they were. They were machine and and I said, let me take the Red Sox that this happened to be nineteen sixty seven and they go on this magical run. And next thing you know, they're in the World Series. Yeahs is you know, having the the year of of of a lifetime and I become hooked on the Red Sox and. Every year every day I would check their scores. I knew their lineup, I knew everything about them and I suffer with them, you know, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. And now next thing you know lo and behold, I find myself moving the Connecticut. So here I am smack in between Yanni's and Red Sox, right in the middle, right, middle. And so one thousand nine hundred eighty six is my second year in Connecticut. I'm watching the the Red Sox Mets World Series and the wild pitch, and I go, oh my God, and then the the, the ball through the legs. I'm like, you've gotta be kidding. And I remember saying go now I know what these people are talking about. Of course, they're gonna lose. They're going to invent ways to lose. No wonder. These people are so miserable up here. They know that light at the end of the trunk is is a an all coming train. They know this. And I just felt for them, fell foot MFL for them. And then you know, when they finally won and and you know, Tito and I have become friends and, and that's the point I'm getting to is I never never ever liked the Yankees about anything. I never liked anything about the. We never got chance to see them play on TV. I didn't get to see Mickey Mantle play. No way could be as good as Willie Mays anyway. So. Embrose Robinson and Mike Schmidt. I said, you gotta be kidding me. He's right. I mean, so now for certain when we win all the time I find myself year after year after year going. Oh my God, the Yankees, we've become the Yankees. Yes. And I've come to appreciate everything that they stand for, who they are, what they do and just how difficult it is to be them. Do you? Well, there's no question. The toughest thing is to repeat, and that's why I'm in awe of what you've done it at uconn because you've been on top or so on, you have to win so many games, and then when you go to the tournament one loss in your out. And so I say, I think of you by the way I thought in the in the sixties seventies of John wooden and and UCLA. You're not playing a four at seven, born seven, you know, you can make changes. You can change this on defense and offense different rotation. But when you play one game, you have to win that that one game. So and by the aunties they have we talking about the culture before. When you think of how long they been on top, you know, you have to think of it when when babe joined the team in nineteen twenty. And you know soon, it's going to be twenty twenty and the Yankees have stayed as this big name for a hundred years, which is like, you'd have to say, really amazing, you know, because it has to do with players as you well know players win games and lose game. So it is. That's why I have so much unbelievable adulation respect for for you and all your teams, Connecticut. Very tough to repeat and you keep repeating and repeating, and it's it really is tremendous. Why pre-state that. And yeah, I mean, it is about the players. It is about the players. It is about getting great talent and. It is. It is a testament to the organization, obviously and one hundred years. You're right. Andre years is a long time and. They've been able to to sustain it for that long. And one thing the ring day in New York, you know, they're, they're fuelled. By this many years ago, invoke show was managing the Yankees. He said the fans don't come to see the Yankees play. They come to see the Antes win. So I, I think they're fuelled by that and one other thing, which is obvious thing. In a winning is good for business, and let me tell you with the Yankees businesses really good, so so it booze them, and now you can make the wrong choices. You can say, you know, we've seen a lot of players get signed for a lot of money who've been busts. And so you know, you still have to have an organization. It's still to make the right decisions, but certainly it's in their best business interest to keep on having a good team. Well, you know, talking about making right decisions, the average person out there, maybe even the die hard, New York fans. The decision to not bring Joe Girardi back. Did that take a lot of people by surprise or did. Was it in the air. I don't think it was in the air Gino I, I really don't. I mean, I I was caught by surprise. It. It wasn't out of the blue because in in the same year, as you know, the Red Sox fired their manager, John Farrell, you know, they finished first, they lost in the playoffs, right? As is one thing too about the Yankees, et cetera. In nowadays, you know, the regular season spine, but boys what you do in the playoffs. There count. That's what that's your legacy. That's what you for. You'll be remembered anyway that Washington fired dusty Baker, and he got him finished. I got him into the playoffs and the Enke's is fire Girardi. And I just think they felt which is always a danger for every coach or baseball manager that their voice isn't being listened to any more. Heard the same same voice for so long, and they figured that this was the time and. IRA Boone is a very, very good dog. He's very low key breezy going and as done a good job, but it'll be view just like Cora. We'll be viewed about what they do in the playoffs. Well, no question about that. You know, it's a, it's a win at all costs business. Like you said, you know, Terry Francona won two World Series in Boston when they had won one years, whatever the case may be. And then they. And you said he was a friend of yours? Yeah, he's a friend of mine too. He is really a good guy, had a terrific manager. Terrific back. And then they go and listen. This isn't working anymore. You think they ought to build a statue to him outside Fenway park, but I get it. You know, that's the way it is. That's the world of of professional sports. From your vantage point the the difference, not that one's better. Believe me. I'm not sitting waiting that one's better the difference in the way Aaron Boone who by the way I saw him his brothers get a catch with Pete Rose. When they were youngsters at veterans stadium, when their dad was the catcher, Phil Ryan dry. Right? The difference between the way he does his job day to day and the way Joe did it. I think Boone is more personal has more contract on an individual basis, and he's a little more open. Joe Girardi was little close, always a little fearful of what the press would find out where the broadcast would find out. So you know, one thing is really true and you can do this in any sport in New York. Part of the job is a very distasteful. Part of the job is interacting with the media and and so that's, that's that's a big piece. Now, it doesn't matter if you win nothing about is if you win, but if you don't win, it does matter. And if they don't like you, they're gonna be on you, then they get the fans to be on you. So you know, it's very tough to criticize Boone. He's such a nice guy. It's such an easy going guy, but if he doesn't win it, don't worry. It'll be criticized. You know, you would think that. Someone like Willis Reed, but you know what a hero, I'm right, and you know what? It didn't matter when he started coaching the Knicks and they'd lose. He got it just like like every other. Yeah. Yeah. That's it. Yeah. So no question, No question. As they say, a results oriented business. Well. Pledge you went in that direction. Speaking of criticisms. You know, for a guy who's kind of like a staple your like an institution in in the Yankee fans, you know, generation two generations at least have grown up. You're the voice of the aunties and yet there's a segment out there that can't wait to criticize you. Right. What's obviously, you know, you're part of the media so you, you know this better than anybody, but how do you, how does a person deal with with that kind of that kind of feedback when you know, hey, I'm really, really good at my job. Well, I first of all, we all have likes and dislikes. I do very strong likes and dislikes. So if someone knocked me in the in the newspaper, which certainly has happened. So you know, I I kind of accepted now then when I this is my thirtieth the end of my thirtieth year with the Yankees. So if some guy, there's one in particular to who is knocked me over the years. Well, have you not someone for thirty years? His personal? So you know, I, I just take. I just take it and throw it away. Everything has worked out. I never dreamt in my life. It would work out this way. If you said to me when I was seven, eight, nine, ten, would you like to be the voice of the Yankees? You know, it would have phone fame? I couldn't. I couldn't even have fantasized it, so I'm really very fortunate. And you know, again, you work in New York and. If you can't take it, you're in, you're in a lot of trouble. I can take it and I just go on the air. I get so involved in the game. I just go on the air and do my thing and hope that it works and you know it, it pretty much is worked for all these years. So you get criticized, you know, I say, ignore it, and you know, one one things, you know they've been so many articles written about me, and then every article at some point, the guys writing the articles, say, of course not everyone likes him. Well, not everyone likes anything or everything, you know, right. So so that you have to accept to. I don't think it's a big thing. There's not a big thing to me anyway. Well, it's funny you say that because I was reading an article on, you know, one of the NFL quarterbacks and you know somebody wrote to the effect that. Listen, I can accept this. You know that I can accept that. I can't accept like. So I'm like, so wait a minute. So the deaf franchise, the quarterbacks you come out every day and go, well, you know, I wanna make sure that what I do is acceptable to these guys writing like, what since when did that become the goal that you accept? It doesn't matter what you accept. This is what we're trying to do. And if we sat there and read every one of your articles and then got the comment on the quality of your writing and what we will accept and what we won't accept, then you'll understand what it is that. So everybody's got a job to do. I get that my my my my question is is, is then so having been with the with them thirty years calling the games, what I think is pretty cool is. You act like a fan. Calling the game. You act like a fan, watching the game in a bar, talking to somebody about what's going on in the game, and people say, well, you know so. And so this guy's a home or just got well, no, no, kidneys supposed to be a Homer. He's supposed to root for the team. He's covering. So you're a fan foremost also? I think I think you know, you can sound wait. I certainly do sound that way because I get excited when they do something right, but I also in the Angie's have never say anything. And I worked now for Entercom used to be CBS before that MSG and ABC never been told not to say something and believe me when they play lousy. I criticize them where they don't move a runner. I criticize him and it also there's one other thing getting back to the criticism. There are some people writing that's their life to be critical. If they are not. Do you think they're not going to grow? And then I got to criticize criticized themselves. They're going to criticize someone else, you know? So you have to accept that to understand that too. Yeah. Well, it's like going to the dentist. I'll happier those guys when all they do everyday pain in basketball accuracy can be the difference between winning and losing.

That's not just insurance turned the AAA. So now after after thirty years and sitting there and seeing it all and being through the ups and downs. Your biggest highlight the time when you felt on top of the world as a Yankee. Slash. Broadcaster fan. Your highlight your biggest moment in the last thirty years with the team. If there is one. Is it impossible to to pinpoint one, but I think the year nineteen ninety six is always been my favorite Yankee year and after they got knocked out of the playoffs on the fifth and final game in Seattle, great playoff series, ninety five. They hire Joe Torry and we have been friends in Atlanta, but I- broadcast there. And so here was, you know, buddy coming over as manager. I was very close to them. Then the the team wasn't really expected to do anything and everything they did was magical, got into first place on may first and held it all year long. And and then the playoffs they were in in the seventh inning about it every game, and they stays rally after rally. And obviously they won went onto win the World Series. They had three games as Lanta that you're in the World Series. One was more sensational and the other. So I say that was the first time, and I always wanted to ring and I was with the nets when they won the last ABA championship and they didn't have money. Roxanne's is a rain. Yeah. Yeah. So I had to wait all the time. Now is ninety six about twenty years later, and I got my first Yankee ring, and I thought that year was absolutely phenomenal. How about that? Billy milky Oni on that team. Then that, yes, how, how about that? Yeah, a lot in those days, you know, nowadays, you see eight coaches on the sidelines well, and those days it was, you know, Kevin lottery who's one of my best buddies was coaching the team. So that was why that was so memorable and Billy was like a player coach for an assistant. I know you only assist is different is different world. The different and boy is a different world in every way. Absolutely. Yeah. Okay. So that that that was a big, you know, I always been. I've always been a big huge Joe Torry fan from heck from his playing days. And I always thought he managed with dignity and he handled everything with class, and he was really the kinda guy that you would wanna play for and the kind of guy you looked up to. No question. So. Let me guess. One of the most heartbreaking moments is when the poor Yankees were leading three, nothing in the SOX came back and won four to three and then went on to win the World Series. That must've drove New Yorkers crazy. Oh, I'm sure it did. Ironically, ironically, after the, he's won two games in Yankee Stadium. They went to Fenway and they scored, they scored twenty runs. And if they had this read this break. That break, they probably would have scored twenty five runs. So they had a three, nothing lead and they lost to Heartbreakers have given the Red Sox credit for coming back. They lost to Heartbreakers and I told my booth mates my Charlie sign. It was working with me an engineer named Brian Ferguson, and I told them the answer, not gonna win the series they've run out of pitching. So actually when they went back to the stadium and the Red Sox won games three of six and seven to win the series. I, I wasn't surprised at all because you know, baseball is predicated so much on pitching your pitching and they're pitching and I knew the Yankees had run out of pitching and Boston with big Papi and Manny Ramirez had great offense team. So so that actually it was terrible for New Yorkers in Yankee fans, that cetera, but I saw it coming so it didn't. It didn't surprise me at all. The. Your favorite Yankee team. In the thirty years, not necessarily the most successful or just the favorite. Your favorite team to cover on a daily basis that you enjoyed the most? Well, without question it was ninety six ninety six. I mean first of all, they won the World Series Sangley you know, the manager, you know, Joe, is there twelve years made the playoffs twelve years and basically on the road every night after the game, we would have dinner. So I I felt like I was boy is that changed? I felt I was so much part of it and and then they had this unusual success and so but now the ninety eight team that won a hundred and fourteen games was the best team. But I think you know, my heart still belongs to ninety six. Your favorite characters in thirty years. You've been there guys that you'd say, you know what you guys would love to go have a beer with these guys. Well, the the pitcher who's who's now working on TV David Cone, he describes us as kindred spirits. And so I like him very, very much and I relate to him and get along with them. There've been an awful lot of others, but I would say the number one probably is David. How about that? When when they talk about. The the Yankee mystique, and and the the, you know, obviously built over years and years and years, and the traditions which are so important everywhere, but primarily at at Yankee Stadium. The no facial hair in today's world, has that been as easy to to to navigate ORs? Has there been any any thoughts on that. Well, I have a lot of thoughts on it. I think these enormous big bushy beards look, terrible relate to how did they time? Yeah, I, I have four kids and I've told them any chat, twos, they're out of the will. So I hate the now if you have a really well trimmed beard and it looks good on you, that's fine. But by the beers that I see, just look ridiculous and I and as hot sweaty in the summertime, I can't imagine why they like it, and I think it looks unkempt and awful. So I don't mind the Yankees every that policy. And the funny thing is it's like getting out of prison the minute, a guy leaves the Yankees. What does he do? You rose a beard. So go figure. But anyway, I, I don't mind it and and I think that look is is not a look that I would. I think tattoos at worst. You see tattoos on the arms next of all these players, hey, you know, so ugly looking, so, but you know what people would say, I he's old school. You're showing your age seventy nine. What's wrong with you? True. True, true. Yeah, we'll speaking of. Old school to dishes. What about this? You know, staring down the home runs flipping the bat. You know? I have. I mean, I obviously I'm, I'm old. I'm old school. You know, traditionalist, you know that saying, you know act like you've done it before. Yes. You know, you hit a home run those things. Really? Yeah. Yeah, those those things don't bother me. I'm not. I guess I don't really care enough. So of a guy, you know, stares at his home run and weights or flips about whatever the the, some of the antics after a touchdown. I actually laugh at, I think it's so silly level. Yeah. Yeah, I do too that I don't. I don't mind at all. And I was doing a an Ivy league football game two years ago, and I can't think of the guy was, but the running back for more. But I think then he went to the end zone and he did an Ozzie Smith backflip and all I thought is boy. I wish I could do that and they gave him fifteen yards because his college football the game, fifteen yards. You know, and is right. So I don't. I don't mind the touchdown celebration. Some of the we've had a few in New York. Some of the off color football celebrations are Lou. Digress. What are they thinking of or are they thinking? But those things don't bother me at all. Remember back in the day now we really sound like two all guys talking. Remember back in the day where I remember reading the story because I love to read about old baseball stories when I want to say it had to be, was it Ken Boyer that played third base for the for the cardinals cardinals? Yes, yes. So Ken Boyer I believe was was writing and talking about that he used to. He used to hit behind stem usual. And when. There was a certain picture and every time Musial would knock one of his famous doubles off the wall that Bush Bush stadium or whatever they call the back in those days. He knew he was getting thrown at. He knew that picks coming right at his ribs, and he knew it. And he tells the story about one time. He was praying for a pitching change and he waited and waited and waiting. And luckily there was a pitching change. And so he's kind of happy and excited and he's now paying attention and I forget who was pitching. But the guy threw it at him as he was leaving the mound and almost hit a while. He was on the on deck circle that was an accepted part of baseball, right? Right. Right or wrong. Don't give me. Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying I agree. I play baseball. Today, you even brush your guy back and there's a a brawl on the field, your your thoughts on that. I don't. I don't know why baseball doesn't do it. Basketball is done not allow the players leave in this case, the dugout or the bullpen. I all I have to do is make a rule. No, because it could lead to a tremendous brawl which looks terrible for the sport and also could injure someone, and I'll give you a great example Gino. We were in Tampa a couple of weeks ago. And sabbatical, especially to a left hand hitter. He left the left, you the lefty, and he threw a pitch up and in. Chest. I, though in the battles left-hander named Jake Bowers shorter to go. He started a move, his hands, the swing and the ball hit his hand on the bat. Absolutely accidental Sobat. He was fishing shutout at the time and the next inning Austin role model leaves off the anx and their pitcher of a journeyman. They Andrew Ketteridge fired a fastball up in not grow mine down. Well, it was retaliation obviously and accept that Sobat is just a normal pitch. And so CC. Went out the next inning that Amy, the chew innings for a clause to kick in for half a million dollars and but he's such a, yeah, he's at the team guy, hit the first guy in the leg. Even it up and so then both benches. Got warned. You know we talked about it's a different world. Yeah, yeah. How come these guys all get injured, some believable, the injuries ended up feelings. They get their feelings are so much. What are your feelings are? They got hurt if they feel a base with a high score or or bunch of something. They would just play the game, stop worrying about their feelings and but anyway, and that way it's changed. I'll give you a great Yankee story. One of my favorites. I mean in baseball. Now there literally is an injury or more every single day. And in nineteen twenty seven when the Yankees had you know one of the best teams of all time for sure, for sure. Yeah, they they broke camp with twenty five players. And those are the ten twenty five players played all year. So you know they were on whether I, when your contracts and they had to keep weighing when they wanna take their job. And nowadays, I think the agents probably tell the players if you slightly hurt, don't play. We want a big contract. That's what I think. Well, the money certainly has changed the game. Yeah, of course. It's changed. You know the the the to me, the craziest thing. I again, I'm not judging on just commenting the crazy thing. Yeah, the craziest thing is you know, you give a pitcher one hundred and fifty million. The guy goes five innings max, you know, I mean, if you came out to take the ball from Gibson, he probably hit you for head with a with a. Absolutely, right. Absolutely, right. So we were talking about this on the air and we're in Minnesota and x. number weeks ago and Jack Morris was doing the game, Minnesota TV and and that's what Susan I said on the air boy came to take the ball from Jack Mars. You'd be. Yeah, so, but that's change. Oh, is that change? Yeah. So you give the guy a hundred and fifty million. He's going to give you five innings day. You know, maybe once in a while he's going to give you six and God forbid, he's, he's throwing a no hitter gives you eight and then you, you know, the bullpen, saves it form, but. Now, the guy pitches two years out of his five year contract, one hundred and fifty million, and then he can't go the rest of the other three years and they all mold that money. I mean, I get why they do it, but it's, it's really, it's changed the game. For well without, yeah. Go ahead without knocking how much money the the players make, which is obviously Norma's. But I'm saying if I was a team, the last thing I would do is what they did with David price in Boston or exact Ranki in Arizona. When you when you sign a guy thirty million a year for five years, they probably is no chance that he's going to be pitching well in five years. I mean, they these pitchers get so fragile. They get injured every day. So. Yeah. Well, it's the same with long term contracts with. Baseball for for everyday players. I'm not an agent. I'm not a general manager. I'm not any of that. And if I was a player, I would certainly line up and say, okay, I want my, I want my share of it, but you know if few Mike trout? Yeah, signed him for ten years and give them fifty million a year. He's worth every penny of. But don't give them don't give him fifty million or twenty million or thirty million between the ages of thirty five and forty five. Which is well, you know, and to me that you wonder is having a star, and this is a question that that I like your comment on is having a star on your team regardless of whether he's able to perform at a certain level, having a name. That important to a franchise that they're willing to overpay. I don't think so in baseball, because although every what we'll see this winter with Bryce Harper among others. Manny, Machado free agents. But in in baseball, you know, you're a great baseball fence. You know, this one guy cannot investment. One person could turn a team around, you know, magic or bird or whatever, but not in baseball. The proof of it is the best pitcher in the National League was the Mets. Jacob degrom. It was brilliant all the time and Ziara was in the ones and they had a losing record because right. The rest of the team wasn't good enough. So I think to you probably seeing a little something different in baseball anyway, because last year the owners did not trip over themselves and sign these free agents, big contracts and so interested to see this winter, what they do with Harper Machado. So are you in favor or you okay with the with the status quo of like, for instance right now, the Red Sox and Yankees have to play, and now. Okay. Houston is amazing. And the Red Sox were amazing, and the Yankees had an incredible year and Cleveland deserves to be there obviously because they want division, so should now the Yankees be playing Houston and the Red Sox play Cleveland based on their regular season records griot. Well, we think exactly the same way now I've said it on the air that baseball has to see the teams just like they do and and basketball, and hockey and football. And if you see the teams, they'd be just exactly what you said. Boston would be one, Houston movie, chew the, it'd be three. Cleveland would be four, and I think that's a much more equitable solution. That's too bad that you know the to TV Orleans Boston and the Yankees. One of them's gonna get knocked out. So. So I just think it makes sense. Anyway, I would like to see baseball do that and and not that they don't deserve it, but you could end up having the teams, the two teams with the best records in the American League, the Houston Astros in Boston, Red Sox playing for the right to go the World Series in in a week or so. Yeah, yeah. And. Well, good. I'm, I'm glad to hear you think that. And and then the next question is. What do you see. As you look at the playoffs and the American League, obviously, what do you see as the strengths of each team before I ask you the next obvious question, what do you think each team. Does. That's that. That's that separates them from from the average teams, all Boston has a very, very offensive team. They the best offensive team in baseball. They do hit home runs. They also steal bases, and they have a lot of guys who make contact. They don't strike out a lot. So you know, they're, that's their strength. And you know the question about Boston probably is answered in the first game when we find out how Chris sale bitches. Yeah. I mean, if he is Chris sale when he's at his best, he's impossible. He's crate. But if not, if it's not, then you know he can. He can be beaten. Cleveland has a lot of punch their top five hitters are excellent and balanced. You know, Switzers and lefty hitters and righty hitters and and they have terrific starting pitching. Their bullpen hasn't been great. And bullpens is so much part of baseball because you don't see guys going eight, nine innings and pitching on two days rest like they did in the old is Houston also as terrific starting pitching in a very good offensive team. I really think anyone of the four teams can win. But if if Chris sales that has best, then then Boston by virtue of their hydrogen, seven wins probably is the best team. When you when you look at the World Series being played in November. Maybe maybe we get a, maybe we get a Cleveland Milwaukee WI. Actually, we got Cleveland Chicago World Series a couple years ago when the players were, you know, wearing parkas it looks terrible. It looks terrible. And the next year we had a three game series in April in Chicago, and I said, on the air every game, not that it proved anything, but I said it's not cold. It's winter and whoever heard of playing baseball outside in the winter. If Milwaukee's in they have a dome Colorado is in it. You're going to be very cold Colorado and Cleveland ball. Would that be cool? But you know, that's why I wanna see the wildcard chew out of three. I'd like to see this series. We're to play against Boston. I'd like to see it four out of seven instead of three out of five. But the problem is if you do that, you are planning on November. Over and and then the baseball just doesn't look good that way. People playing with, you know, the. The the hoses and the masks. I mean, that's really, that's not baseball. Well, some are whether the most important games of the year played in the worst weather sometimes and you can't be Mr. October anymore. You know, you have to be called Mr. November Mr.. Right? Overslept. Why don't they start the season earlier. Who needs that long for, you know, start the season earlier, have most of the March games be played in the south and in the west and end the season earlier. I mean, would you they? Well, they are starting at a little earlier these days, but apro April in a lot of cities. Boy, quitting New York is really tough. That's when you see the ski masks and the and the hoods, and the looks really look silly so, but one thing they ought to do, we say it all the time. They ought to begin in in warm places and homes. That's right. They have enough of them right. And you know that would, but you know what it is to Gino people, coaches managers, Joe manages owners presidents. They don't want their team to get off to an eight. You know, they're, they're playing on the road in some warm place and that will kill ticket sales. You know, if you get off, especially if you're a bad team, you got off to a bad start and you're buried. So it all has, you know, wanna. When you get right down to it has to come down to a Konami and. You know, follow the money kind of thing. Do you ever think there'll be any day games again, in the World Series. No, that's sad. It just for ratings that's not just, but that's business. And the the networks spend this phenomenal amount of money on sports and they for their advertises which are sold on ratings. They want, you know, biased rating possible. I mean, it really it really is pretty simplistic. It is about money. It is about the economy and I might be simplifying things. I'm sure I am. But all I know is this the World Series was on and it was on TV and it was on during the day. I don't care where you're working. There's a TV on in your room somewhere. You know if your, whether you're casual baseball, free and not a baseball fan. I mean, if you're certainly if you're a die hard and especially today with the mobile devices and everywhere that people are watching their games. That's one way to give the players like, yeah, how about we play when it's sixty five degrees out in the afternoon at one o'clock instead of playing when it's thirty five at nine o'clock. That's just me. I'm certainly old enough to remember all the day World Series games and how you know. 'cause when you're a kid, my goodness this, they're, they're more than phenomenal. And by the way you, you talked about the new technology. Maybe the fact that they're changes will be upon us because of the new technology. Maybe I was wrong maybe one day that day games will return because they're on all these devices. It is a heck of an age living in where you know you, you could near the Anki broadcast all over the world that we we. We have listeners all over the world. You can listen on their MLB app or whatever the devices are. You. You know, I I didn't ask you when when does your season begin? Well, we actually start practice next Wednesday, October tenth, and our first game is sometime the first week in October or something like that. Yeah. Remember we look, it's believe me. I'm. I wanna actually you have to call timeouts and walk up and down the sideline this year we're, we're going to have to work at it a little bit more than we have. Let's say in the last couple of years, so it'll be exciting. It'll be a nice challenge for us. You know? I have. I have an ability last night. It's a great example. The game is just as much fun and exciting. Of course. Then last night was a playoff game, Yankee Stadium, MOS delirious, and every game is great. Do you feel the same way when you entering a game, you're gonna coach game. Do you feel the same way that you just love this game and you can't wait for the the competition? Yeah, you know, I'm sure after one hundred and sixty two games during those on your sixty two games, you're not going to feel that way every single night out. Obviously. I mean, that's just human. Obviously, but but when you go out and you know, like let's say, we play at the excel centre in downtown Hartford, and we're playing and there's fifteen thousand people there, and it's national television and the fans are crazy. And we're playing, let's say, Notre Dame or somebody. Yeah, you walk out there and you go, man. This is going to be amazing and you feel it, you feel it all through your body and you you become like. You become one with the with the players in the you want. When I, you know, when the opening tip goes up and. Your team gets the ball and you're coming down on offense. It's almost like you're playing in a in a library 'cause you don't even hear the crowd. You are so completely invalid in the game, and it's not until all of a sudden, some big thing happens late in the game. There's a Ron and and there's a time out and the players are coming to the bench and you realize, damn, there's places loud and it it just it does it. It kind of overwhelmed you. It really does. It's incredible. So I can imagine what it's like the walkout the Yankee Stadium for a playoff game and sixty thousand people are out of their minds and especially if you hit a, especially, you know, there's a. When the judge had his own run first inning. Yeah, you just sat down and your seats and right away. Now you've lost your mind. Like, you know, we're. We're gonna come on what could be better than this? So. We're very lucky that we can make a living at a job that you really love. They really, you really want. I don't like the packing and unpacking and the traveling and Yankee time we don't. We don't get getaway day game. So Yankee time as we get every city at four in the morning, I don't love that. But as far as the game, that's it's easy to like, and you're in a car right now driving the Fenway park. Right, right. So I'm I'm driving to the hotel, but yes to the hotel. Okay. So tomorrow night. I pitch. The judge and it's over the green monster. Let me hear it. Come on, it's judgy and blast. Hey, his one over the green monster, all rise here comes the judge. I love it. I love it. I love. I love it, John. Thank you so much, really. Really appreciate this was a lot of fun. My pleasure. And I hope I run into you on the sideline some night, but I would love nothing more than that. Enjoyed the sink you. Thank you. Take care now. All right. Bye-bye. Well, there you have it. We just got a home run by Aaron, judge. You heard it right here from the golden voice of the New York Yankees, John sterling amazing. Talk baseball with John sterling for ever. I could talk baseball when most people forever, because I'm fascinated by baseball have been since I was a kid still love it to this day. I found that to be incredibly informative, rewarding enjoyable, just that really, really nice man to talk to. I hope you enjoyed it as well. So until our next podcast be on the lookout for it. All I can say is I'm gone. See you soon. See you soon.

Episode 169: With John Sterling

"Ooh what's up what's happened. Welcome to another edition of the short porch presented by Miller lite. It's Miller time. It's always Miller. Time joined here by. Tommy smokes join me by Mr Five. Oh Four Martin. Mush. What's going with. Can you hear my birds screaming now? This happened last two. We can't hear I don't think so is. He is ruthless right now kind of bird. Is it? My mom was wondering double yellow Amazon? Okay she thought we have an aspirin Grad Hong Harvey. She's like it's an African grey nuts. It's like Green. I don't think African grays agree. It's a tough name right. Might be the only we might be the only pockets in world war. Two of the hosts have birds and we bulk eight birds dialing. We liked them. But Yeah Harvey's tough name right now hopes yes well well little harvey so cute. Yeah that's me. You can do know her on cutting. It's a girl from from what I understand. I don't understand the origin of the name. Harvey with what you understand. What do you mean how do you now know what mine is because I just I know relationship with the bird? It was my dad's bird and we say it's been in the family twenty years. You guys don't I guess I just don't care no separate that's it. You guys guys seen Birds Dick before I know I'm not I don't think please right now. Look up a birds you will blow your mind. How do that it is what I saw? I saw it on the cousins. One time us in the cousins looked it up and it was shocking. Dick wait I'm not really seen anything. What do you mean? It's a habit? Corkscrew yeah I might be good. Well You oh my God I thought it was Poupette I wait. Let me see how it almost looks like his intestines. Falling out of his body looks like that video we lost in Tampa doll. Fuck you TJ. Tommy what are you looking up? I Just Bird Dick and I'm not is this it. What yes. Yes that little corkscrew thing. Yeah looks like a gill like a fish or something burn. It looks like he is two of them. It's not talked about enough. It's not an but it doesn't need to be talked about at all. I don't need to talk about at all. Yeah I think it should be talking about away. House quality life. I'm alone here now. All my roommates have now left and fled to their hometown because they closer enough and then get picked up by their parents. Here is bring all their shit home. I live two hours away by by car. So I'm not trading home getting corona. So I'm I'm just GONNA stay here. I guess in dial on city to both my roommates are still here though so. I'm not totally alone. I'm thinking about going home. I do look close enough for my parents could pick me up but I just. I'm afraid I'm giving myself all the symptoms like I diagnose myself the fever a you know. I. I've convinced myself that I have it so it's like I don't WanNa go home. We're giving it to my parents. Fritz Gary Shipman the city I was like Kinda not thinking about it too much until yesterday. When it's just like basically New York City is just Wuhan like it's the new dot center on the world. Like I guess that we kinda see not coming but it's coming so official sucks to in New York. We have over twenty five thousand cases. I looked like a looked up Austin sixty five it if nothing down there they don't even know what the diseases down there. Awesome is like a popular area right now especially with younger people and stuff and sixty-five compared to twenty five thousand saying I do think part of it is we're doing. I think like thirty percent of the testing in the nation. Like we're we're testing people way more than anybody else which is good. But that's also why the numbers are high and then obviously just So crowd at the peak of the virus to hit New York City for another two weeks the peak. Yeah we'll originally was supposed to be like forty five days. It was going to be early. May Now the peak is GonNa come sooner and be higher. Yeah not not yet like you basically to assume you have it. I I don't have it. I haven't left my apartment in like one full week like I've made minimal contact with the only way could possibly have it is like the pizza guy has it. But like I don't even touch touched the pizza on types of the actual person obviously so I don't think I have it But what I do have is a wisdom tooth coming in in. Maybe the worst time ever to have a WHIZ. I don't even understand how you have. Wisdom teeth work. I'm almost certain I got all four pulled out on college. How do I have a fucking wisdom tooth piercing through my skin? Right now is beyond me. You know you know if you've got your wisdom teeth taken out while I know I definitely got two in college for sure. I remember like bleeding out of my mouth after class but my mom claims that I got the other two taken out at home and she has like paperwork to back it up. I don't know if she's telling the truth or not. But here's here's a tooth right now. Coming through in any time ago. Brush my teeth. I almost collapsed in pain. It's so painful anytime I chew. It's terrible after I've been eating ice cream in many muffins just nonstop. My diabetes probably going through the roof. I don't have it but I probably do My wisdom to. It's just I don't know what can you are? Dentists Open Right now. I'm not going to go but like I don't even know if they're like. Why would that this building right now? I just for anyone listening right now. Hubs looks like he's about to go out there being on spring training staff for the Yankees were. He's got a visor on the ridiculous dude. I lost my mind. Wisdom wisdom teeth is definitely not the four refused the taken out because they don't hurt but what I was thinking about this. Romney is that we in two weeks. We're GONNA have people are going to have to work. People are going to die where Bro. I don't know but it's more than two weeks. It's almost to a point where we have to or like everyone's GonNa be fucked. Well we don't have to. I know not us but we're lucky. I'm saying like people that I am saying. The restaurant in St Shit. There's but also like it's just like we don't have a choice of a certain point you gotta chronic health over the economy. But I guess that's kind of the debate right. Trump seems to want to go back to work like in a week or two really do. I'm saying that I think that's what he wants because he knows like a everyone's talking like maybe you get like thousand dollars or something yet. Again has sites like shoot trillion into the economy or something. But I don't know if we'RE WE'RE ELIGIBLE. Who's eligible for that money into one time payment but we are a free free money? Seems pretty sweet I just got Cheddar's groped but I mean I don't know I think people are going to have to go back to work. I mean David largest in the office that I'm reporting radio spiders there too. That's spiders this big going the entire time now now. He has this the first time he's gone since last week. That also puts me more at risk. So it's like death also I don't WanNa go home. I mean I guess there is nobody there. So it's not like and he walks there. I guess somewhere and yeah. How would you taking a train on just defeats the purpose of everything I think he would? Just I would just get it like I like. That's just that could be probably the worst thing I could do. The one of my friends said rent a car. I don't really know how to do that. And I just don't really want to drive two hours. Hallman deal with a rental car there and drop it off and bring it back. I don't need to do that The only way I go home at this point I think is if my mom literally comes in picks me up which I wouldn't put a pasture do but honestly I don't even think she wants me home because this dude at our Wedman's three minutes from our house walked in yesterday founded old who works there and went up and just awesome her and said. I've got corona virus rag to her and then they just arrested him on terroristic threats. I mean that's that's the state of my person should be killed murder. Yes what is wrong with people? What is wrong with people joint crazy? I don't know man this is. I mean yeah. Also now people are saying that. If you've been in New York City you're supposed to self quarantine for fourteen days anyway. So it's like defeats the purpose of going of leaving completely honestly like I just thought of not having to make any more meals for myself. Where after just food poisoning myself for the most part you know don't Cook or You know ordering food is expensive. Obviously and now I'm just living in an apartment by myself where I can't leave so when you're an apartment where you by yourself in. It's dark and like Oh doors. Are Creaking people walking downstairs? Like you start to really lose your fucking mind so much in these types of situations. I live upstairs and like one or two. In the morning I went to Wash My. I went to go to the bathroom and I swear to God. I heard someone walking downstairs and I just started to freak out now I start to like. Oh what if someone knocks on my door? Now what do I do? I just I to Michael. I don't know what to do here so that that's the crops are racing through my head because I can't handle this shit anymore closet. What hide my closet? That's my only it's like. Well this fucking killer year that I don't want to do double doors. Well-nigh DOORS SHUT OUT JUST WATCHING. Blake lively movies. I don't know why I lavish attention. Span Watch movies now dislike? I'll start watching something and I just start thinking about something else and I'm just thinking about crazy shit and literally. These challenges are just. They're taking up my time. Thank God I'm losing losing my mind. I can't. I thought you did that. I thought were going to be able to. I don't think we're going to record to that. Thought you'd still be doing. It might have been like. I thought it was a physical impossibility I did too. I had that was such a nonchalant holy. I couldn't believe it went in. It was only an hour and a half and I thought five hundred four. That's fucking sick. I might be getting. I might become the best at this thing Mike. My ideas like nothing. You're no that's bull water. Fill up to that cup. Might Trout get Outta here. Mike Trout. The Guy is what you. WanNa do next like if you make them harder and harder like eventually. It's going to become a possible. It's thought that was almost impossible so making the next one heart. I'm I'm working on right now and it might have a guest my next one. I have a lot things going on over here. Guest W- you're not allowed to have people. Instagram live? Oh did you hear that? Me and Dana or in this celebrity instagram live. Well what's that well? The line of what? Mike started doing like an instagram. Live Celebrity B. Upon Tournament and he invited Dana and in data picked me. And do the lineup is like Travis. Kelsey Post Malone Danny Kreis angry people and I'm sitting here people tuning black. Who the fuck are these people? Wait how does that work like the bill? Dana would have to be over at my house and social distancing. Obviously but then like your cups cups would be on your screen so I would. If I hit one of the cups on their side they would take one out. Yeah I could see that Gotcha thinking the teammates were separate to. But that makes sense when it went into supposedly. Monday are waiting for more information. Oh my God let's just say. Oh my God you Travis Kelsey. Whoever like I'll be so fucking funny? 'cause like it's GonNa be legit celebrities. And then it's it's GONNA be mandated. Which is the superstition facing off against like post Malone on trump's facing off against like post malone that would be absurd. I'd shit myself. He was on the same screen as Iwa Studies. Barsha Guy Right. It has to be yet Obviously big stupid by the whole Villian Beers in this whole thing with chug bud like he has this little key thing that uses unease is big on that so. I guess it goes to fucking crazy then Tommy you had. We brought this up to you before the show started. And you just didn't even know we were talking about how you use the word of person eating so I thought I thought that was it not in. I would've said I would've said yeah no I would've thought catfish at. I eighty eight Stanley. I thought somebody was doing impressions of me so I was like who the fuck did an impression on me and then I missed that Just some random girl Ariana Grande with this. You just like text messages from some guy pretending to be me. This happened once before to not too long ago. We tried to call the guy on our soil radio but I think when people do it they use like fake number APPs. So I think maybe we're not allowed to get calls or something. I mean this guy just soiling my good name he's like you're so you're sexiest fuck. You're the you're the cutest girl Cleveland. Just off things. I would never say but at the end of the day. It is a huge honor that somebody out there was like I have a better chance of getting laid as Tommy smokes than it has me so I kinda hang my hat on that I liked. I liked to take because that would that would make me happy so in trying to pick up a girl right and I think that most I think most girls with a brain would realize probably not real like especially coming from green this girl I just did not know in all the extra out of the blue without having a number and make normal. Conversation is insane to be honest. This could have been if she was like she was hot. You've been like well. Did you like when Tommy smokes? Text you much the question I mean. Yeah you're right getting personally like that to talk to a hot girl. There could be worse things to happen. I guess yeah What else do you guys? I wanted to ask Before we get into baseball guys. Click twice to lock your doors your car. I clicked twelve times. You're such an asshole. I hate you so much. You know you have to only do twice won once you gotTa make sure because you know that can be. So what else doing their car? You have no idea the always do twice now. I'm just I'm a nervous I do twice. What are you talking? I think twice. I don't drive that much. Honestly I would say once or twice definitely not more than twice. I mean you can sometimes hear it. Yeah probably twice but then sometimes I think twice. This is a lots to door or when you were finding it when you lock it I'll reset finding it finding no because then sometimes I I enjoy it. Yeah no I actually don't even think about it. My thing broke off my car like five years ago so I actually just use the key like a person from nineteen sixty finding a hit a hundred times What else is okay? So let's talk a little baseball There's not much but Aaron Judge Drunk Paul are small is back and I think if the regular season were starting which shouldn't be on the twenty six when you're hearing it it's just not an sort oppressing to think about but it seems like Giancarlo. It'd be pretty much back right away. Which is good. That he's full is cap is fully regenerated. Aaron judge they made it something for Aaron judge that he had. I've never heard of this before. But basically he had a collapsed lung along with his Rib Injury. That's terrifying that he just had a collapsed lung. Apparently this is normal when you have a structure in a rib but there's a there was a medical diagnosis for it and I can't find it right this second but it was. I mean that's just not great. When you have Erin judge having collapsed law. Guinot that I don't really know what that means but it sounds terrible. Well here it is new Motha That's really had don't like that don't like it. I'm GonNa do more thorough checks. Don't eat dogs with honestly at this point just like don't get Corona I. Yeah I guess it's a mirror. Yeah that'd be bad collapse long with fucking corona. That's a breathing issue. Remember when remember a few weeks ago when one of our biggest problems in life was that Aaron judge had a shoulder injury that was that was great? Back that's what you woke up to like Shit. You know what really ruins my day. Is that Aaron judge shoulder injury that was like the worst thing that we had going down. We just don't have baseball tomorrow. We have been opening day of baseball and like the Sweet Sixteen of College Basketball Film. It would've been eaten sparked on's in we would have been in the office. Eating talked on record in the game. Eric Cock cats after the Game Garrett Cole given up a home run to start but then hunkering down for seven innings of ten. Strikeout wonder on ball. I don't WanNa say nothing but I did join this. I CAST IN BASEBALL GOT CANCELLED. You Ruin Baseball. You're in the world it's crazy you ruin baseball. Look what else. There is some positives though that we actually could be having some baseball getting sat a second but To a lot of crazy injuries have happened since your last show. Not Yankee related. Good Chris Sale will not grow. We don't refer injuries but Chris Sale. Tommy John Noah syndergaard. Tommy John The kristel Tommy John. Anyone could have seen that coming in with a brain. I mean he was just going to need. Tommy John. Red Sox fan crowds for being absolutely moronic optimistic. There's no way he's going to avoid it all the injuries in the signs and all that and then all of a sudden Noah syndergaard yesterday just wakes up in the Tommy John Easy on the guy in quarantine that could fucking terrorist. Ucla can more on. That guy is but no I know I know. The quarantine is has muscle brain. Because when I saw that Nelson News I felt nothing. I I was just like you know. Not Like my archenemy refer injury but I I would. I would be like. Oh look at this. I just felt nothing I was like. I don't give a fuck. I just wanted to chrome virus to be over. I couldn't have a villainous tweet. I was like Oh this sucks like whatever but I will say Severino Sale Syndergaard Tommy John. That's not great news for Strasbourg. Stirs Her Saroka? The last name starting S. You're just like this is the best time to get it. This is the best possible time together. That's what I was asked. You think syndergaard like e could've held off. He's like hey we're not playing. We might as was fucking do it now like how. Why would it does happen yesterday? I don't know I. He must've in classic mets fashion. He must have fallen out of bed on his arm and like torn as UCLA. Like that's what they said it was bothering him towards the end of the camp before like everyone got ice. Oh did I say that? I didn't see that okay. I've thought but I could be making that up like you know what do it now. What what's the reason? Wait when we have. We're doing nothing. Well he's going to miss into the summer next year. It's not just going to. He's back for spring training and he's all set like this might as well do it. Now Kiss. Judge can Israeli rib injury you might as well just removing the RIB at this point. But that's a good point is up last night. I couldn't. I lost the ability to sleep at this point. Partly because I'm back in Video Game Haute where I just play in the water in the morning and then all of a sudden I'm wired and Can't sleep watching this Blake lively movie age of Adeline having pretty much in tears in bed. It was so dramatic and sad. Been WATCHING A lot. Blake lively and five. Am I'm literally scrolling through twitter? And I get one refresh before I close my eyes. Awesome Jeff. Passengers drops an article on everybody and it gives us hope we have hope again so apparently the last ten days. Major League Baseball on the MVP have been meeting in the conference calls all this certain players trout etc. Yelich and they basically are planning for an early July or early. June. Start date where they'd have scheduled doubleheaders sometimes multiple in a week is players are pushing for this so they can get as many as as close to a hundred and sixty two games as possible and then we'd have a season and then. They pushed the regular season into October like Middle October late. October and November will be playoffs with neutral site stadiums. And that's our season back in. We're looking forward to the fact that they're planning for that and it sounded like visit deadline. I believe at the end of the day Wednesday. She might know about this already by the time. You're listening to this. It's it just gave me hope because I had anything I I honestly live my life in such a pessimistic fashion that like I expect the absolute worst of anything better than that happens. I'm pleasantly surprised and right now. I'm expecting baseball completely cancelled from what we're hearing on the news and all this so we get this. I'll take it. I know people are upset about neutral site playoff games. What can it's baseball man? I'll just I'll take I can get any. That can watch on the screen. Aaron Judge Plates He Garrett Cole Pitch Pinch all that give me at all. I don't care to get me a season in any way can happen at all after that whole speak. Tommy goes yeah I hate you. I just don't think it's happening. Bullshit is played club Penguin. Rescue you are talking to. Why give it? Tommy's been clamoring for club peg when he's texted the group. Five Times asking for I WOULD. I love it if I was in a group. I love it. It's really don't even do anything. I Dunno most word quarantine blind making my name back. WanNa you ready for Corona People Die. No baseball just so you can play club. Languid on my name. The worst person ever exists. Don't don't hate on it until you try it I refuse you know it's also going to happen. If this all goes down shortened season the Yankees are GonNa win the world series. And we're still not going to get credit for it. Alec Number Twenty Eight. Lv Number Twenty. I'll take all the credit. It's just not going to have an asterix on it. You just know that. Imagine even if the Red Sox won the world series and they made him With their team they wouldn't take credit for winning the world series. Everything would take credit but whoever it is GONNA get trolled. Yeah like no matter what I don't care I don't care leaving I don't care I'm just saying that's the reality of like Oh remember when the Yankees won last year will they only played four games or whatever whatever. I still championship. I don't know how this is GonNa work on scheduling work like were they just throw out the curtains current schedule make a new one. The scheduled doubleheaders is something. I've actually wanted for a while. I used to be an old time. Thing like the sixties. There should be a doubleheader now. Obviously not once every week twice a week but once a month with the way with like play arrests than everything and pitchers arms of prize. Like they'd agree to doing that may well. I think they're going to expand rosters like pretty much through the whole year will be expanded roster so that will help them and you know alleviate the stress of bullpens and all that but I don't know I just double headers are awesome more baseball for for US I even saw they were thinking about doing. This would be crazy. Shoot doubleheaders be seventy games? I don't know if it's minor league to sell. They do in the minds wait there. You're proposing at the miners or they're going to do that in a major. That's how at least double A. Double their scheduled doubleheaders two seven inning games. Fifteen minute break in between our half hour break in between. I don't love that idea but just that's just not baseball baseball's nine that game so I don't think that's little leaguer any of that. Shit but the passing article gave me life. I don't know what he's doing writing blog at for the morning publishing it. He seems to always do this now. Jeff just not getting a lot of sleep these days. I don't think and he's losing his mind as well but I just I don't know so at least there's a little bit of hope. I think we're GONNA know more about him today today. They might be like news breaking that they came to some sort of agreement minor league. Violators Awesome get paid. Which is good. They needed help. Those guys out because those guys literally are like Driving Uber. Right now to make ends meet like AA players and all that jeff feel bad for those types of guys and Yana just shit show. But at least there's a plan in place that if they can fucking people to stay inside for two weeks and actually just flattened this curve. Maybe we can come back to some sort of normal society. The Olympics were cancelled all that but I don't know I'm just. I'm holding on by a thread here because I I can't see a season without baseball. I just nine needs some baseball here. Some sort of sports. I can't just keep washing our streaming like ping pong today like Japanese people just to get something in me like some sort of athletic competition me and just I mean Mardi basically you're providing sportscar but at this point so that's the only thing that's getting me through like I'm competing against myself. Yeah I still don't understand five four to me is just that will live in infamy your Mr Pharaohs tell me that didn't just feel so good when it hit into the toilet paper I couldn't imagine what it's like honestly satisfying. Yes because it wasn't like a couple bouncers just one to one thing that pissed me off about that it how quickly you remove the ping pong ball from the toilet paper at Shit. Shouldn't you should've left it in there. You should framed it you should cement exit should have never left. That thing came off. Intended on your brother that is true. I do apologize for that because I thought about that right after like literally. You should have started creating a desk in your house like putting like all these achievements on there and the one thing that should lead off like you know how Dave has his Mug now. It should be that toilet paper where that ball glued in there and. I just bothers me now. You've you've probably already used that toilet paper to wipe your ass or something you just don't care. I don't like that but not that's still there. That is still there. I didn't care for that one bit. I guess going to pass thing. Where if they did a neutral site world series. Where would you prefer somewhere? Warm Dodger Stadium would be one Angel Stadium. Obviously the Texas Rangers Place Globe life the Astros Place Trump which almost be funny. Because it'd be such a disaster but no And then Onto then I'm GONNA say Miami. Yeah I think that that. Just be a funny look for the world series. Derrick jeeter maybe can help us Canada. The dodgers because of the dodgers are in it then all of a sudden neutral site. Why was the Astros? I don't WanNa fuck with that stadium. I'm going to say I'M GONNA say Miami pitchers PAR FIASCO SEATTLE. That's the worst place. That's literally one of the worst places in America right now. Yeah tabby goods. Everyone's just is gonna Seattle Great. I actually concede trump saying the world series in Seattle. Not dammit and I guess they can do indoor places. I guess the twins place on all the twins is outdoors now. What else is indoors? I'LL TORONTO BUT THE CANAS NOT letting us into their countries. I don't know how that would work. Queudrue issues there. I mean it would be kind of cool to win a world series in Houston would be Kinda cool. Bindi worried there Someone's cheating somehow. That's true sewer while I mean it's going to suck. I know people are like against neutral sites everything but it's just what we have to deal with at this point. If we're GONNA thought of not having like October in the Bronx off gotta the nothing and I almost feel like they were. They were saying how during the regular season like some places would be unplayable. I feel like New York would be one of those places since. It's the new Wuhan at this point and I don't know how we're we're months away from this place being functional. I feel like to the point. We can have been stadium show. I feel like all Yankee Games would be played at spring training which would like George Steinbrenner field. Granted it's a nice place and it says it's nicer than some peoples regular stadiums. I feel like but to see Yankee. Regular Season Games in Tampa Florida would be fucking bizarre. But I feel I wouldn't feel right Razi What else I one thing left down here if there was one this might be a GM. I don't know I haven't. I haven't read the DMZ but if there was one Yankee player you'd WanNa be quarantined with with epic. That's a good question. Yeah someone that's just going to sort of keep to themselves and being normal. I haven't answered. I will say Jordan Montgomery might not be a bad one. He would just kinda quiet. Nice Guy. Okay Okay I talked to. My mind would be a bad one easy to really keep to himself but he's also going to live here and there he'll say something like. Whittier intelligent or funny. It's useful come every like three hours. But because he keeps himself but like talk with anyplace video games. I think we're GONNA play video games. Go Short on youtube because I did my stream yesterday off that I played But I think me talk to get on the sticks and a little bit play some show. Sassari cool but yeah my pick. I guess it'd be can't be like camera you can leave now really would kill you. I think would eventually get tired of you. And then he really strong can kill you So that's not great policy. Probably eat like you also might Ford. He's gotta get gotTA get some hot food while you're in quarantine as well show that he was having some fun or shallow look like he was higher than door Getting his haircut and talking in Spanish I guess. Labor wouldn't be so bad you really. Can't I guess his English was good enough to and he seemed Labor's not a bad pick actually labor us game until he looks. He's Great Place. He's we'll tell you having a blast out here talking glaze over Marty. Who are you thinking? I think I'll at first. I was thinking Clint Frazier cause but I think he would. We would fight talking. Would hate me already does yeah. That's a fact there Gardener I feel. It would make me do pushups the entire time. Like get make myself better. I was thinking about digital may a little bit. You're just GONNA have no compensation whatsoever right. Just trying to figure them out. Would keep me occupied. The entire time does play video games too. He loves video games. Like one of the five you'd like ask him about Corona and he would just be like can't dumping back from August twenty sixth game against the cubs fastball. Here I cannot believe it when we go outside. Curve Ball on August twenty seconds. Just ridiculous threw me that alchemy to be honest four. Choose like boy all your long as he leaves some Oreos something. I'm alright what's your what's your go-to quarantine. Snack Pizza Rolls. I loaded up on snacks. I got some double stuffed oriels. Mala Mars twix kit kats chocolate chip cookies. The ones that come to the Green. You guys stopped you got. I gave up fucking chocolate for lent like an asshole just cancelled came back and gave. WanNa fuck in place. Clear checking on Lynch care. Can't I can't do it. I hold myself to you. Are you making these sad? What do you say that look at you? But you know we'd take us up on on you. Should you should grow a beard. Tj I cannot grow. I haven't changed since the start in Egypt theories they've ever dead serious. I'm big Frankie. I'm doing the same thing I haven't but I'm starting to get like a little bit of a goatee. You can barely see it either a week or so like I would love that. I mean I can't grow the greatest fear really. I haven't shaved like two days ago like schedule. Corentin beard but I can't. I don't think I can do it. I was my mind. You didn't try like fake shave when you were a kid with shaving cream and like toothbrush. No definitely didn't do that. I could that there was like a spiderman kid that had like a fake razor in it or you just allegra put shaving cream on and the need like toothbrush pretended to shave. But I was a baby. They let me have shaving cream on your toothbrush. That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard you. Don't you don't use the toothbrush so simulation morning. Tj Oh I lost my train of thought. That was that about yeah. I lost my train of thought. I used to put the right use to think out the gold. Bob I see my dad. Shaver or someone shaving. Let me try it. And I'd start saving. I think that's why I gotta be because when you shave shit goes grows back vessel. Oh no that's such a fucked up thing we get it in like high school. Everyone I was like the last one like grow any facial hair pretty much and I would get jealous of these people and I want jake who shaving almost every day at that. Point goes almost like the Adam Sandler it stay as long as you can. It was like keep this as long as you pam because once you get a beard like this it's never gonNA stop and you'll lose your mind that I did listen to him. And all of a sudden I have this and every two or three days at the shaving and it sucks and use the neck and the neck. Beer is the worst you guys. Are you guys have a great run at Tj and Tommy Tommy especially because he's older TJ? Complainer okay so. We do have an interview with John Sterling. Which is great when down. Tampa when corona really wasn't a thing we talked to him he's got a great. It was just starting to be a thing. Yeah he is great. Little ran on the Astros. John's the Besson Marty's asking a few thing. I don't think understood a word Marty said to him at all lot one bit but my favorite part of this is that he still doesn't know who we who you guys aren't. Tommy just calls them out of nowhere those. Yeah sure you again. No one no other. Podcasts can get John Sterling on because no one has his number like we do But he still doesn't have any relationship with us he just goes.

So it's all great things while than macworld and over there may have further. Ado here's the radio. Legend Voice of New York Yankees Mr Johnston. We're now joined by Yankees legend. The Voice of the Yankees recurring guests on the show porch the legend himself John Sterling John. How's it going well? It's good this spring training. We only do about ten games. So we're about as we shoot this or record this we're about halfway through and then the season and on behalf of the Yankees. It would be a lot better. If if messes judge and Stanton were healthy and Quang's but this claim has so much talent they actually could get by without them. It'd be much easier with them right and so we hope that they'll I? Don't listen to news. I'm really good about that was on. Tv read the newspapers. And you guys go on the Internet and a lot of people say a lot of things and they don't know anything but we'll see no one knows very much on the Yankees survived last year. How could it be worsened last year? So you'd like to not do that again. And maybe a little more healthier people this year How is spring training? Been treating you. What are your overall thoughts of the team? So far where you've seen well I can tell you what I think might twenty five men. Well known this point which is very good for the Yankee hopes. They'll be able to carry another very talented player. You know really. I don't make any judgments on spring. Training Games don't mean anything at all and I'd say the best news the Yankees have given. Is that after Losing Severino for the year boy. What a lot in pitch last year either feel so that's two years that the number three starter j happened the number four starter Jordan. Montgomery of both very well. Now doesn't mean anything to pitch. Well here I don't know and I don't think so I think so but I'd say going into the season they're going to be the prohibitive favorite in their division and I could understand that the fifth starter spots one of the battles that are going on at spring training. We were just talking actually early interviewed Clark Schmidt and Michael King. Who Do you think Mike? Grab that fifth spot right now right now. The very high on Schmidt Right They can go without a bit starter and US Chad. Green is the opener with sesame behind him that they did very well last year Again we have three weeks ago in spring training so there's a lot of games lot of decisions and by the way a lot of injuries it will up so I'm not sure but there. Those are two two people King Michael King and Clark Schmidt. Don't forget whoever's pitching think a lucky they are. They have this team that there's not a bad hitter on the team. I can give you a team right now. There's not one bad hitter on the team. And then they have a very deep bullpen and back them. The top five guys are really good so Whoever starts she'll have to do is bitch. Okay and they're gonNa get you know some runs and they're going to get a bullpen to three runs. They're going to be pretty good the half. We're probably GONNA score six runs a game hosted guy whom I pitch okay this year Newcomer Garrett Cole. What are your early impressions of him? Have you had a chance to talk to him at all? No I have not however you don't have to convince me about Garrett Cole against the. Yeah and we broadcast the satiety game when he started. Brian just electric amazing impact. He was so electric. Keep sending him out. You never got to his pitch count. So he was chewing away. Boone basically it and it's a terrific way to begin to have a guy that good at the top of your rotation so it all you can you not to say you can survive severino but it makes it a lot easier to handle when you have. Garrett Cole as your number one and everything else to things they went out you know the old. They put their money. Where THEIR MOUTH IS GARRETT COLE? And then they really but their money where their mouth is by not trading away. Jay Hat now the number three starter kit thing one other thing I will say you know you battled your way through April and May and the Yankees are then going to get back James Paxton and Domingo hormone the to start. She has so i. If you wanted me to worry about the Yankees no not yet too good a team yeah with the Garrett Cole signing the Yankees and passed free agents. They've sort of passed on some of the guys Patrick Corbin or whatever it may be. What do you think it was about Garrett Cole that said you know this is the guy we're breaking the bank three hundred twenty four million whatever it is. He's our guy the way they've seen a bitch that'll do it out questions including against the Yankees in the AL CS last year. You know you can't make every deal and sometimes is in other words if they had let's say Gotten Machado or Harper. They wouldn't have the money. It's not limitless. They wouldn't have had the money to go get Garrett Cole. In a number one pitcher is important or more important and they didn't get Machado and so the unearth fortunately. Go or Shell. They never figured that what happened right. Don't forget and he didn't play at all last year and they have him added to the team. So sometimes you have to hold onto your chips and you wait until it's the right move and right now. We think it's the right move. How do you feel about and do hardy outfield? Love it I do too? I've been rooting all. I want you to know I've been to things they didn't to me. They don't listen. Should they should lead. You're listening to me. I think when he's right dellenbaugh. Chances is the best relief pitcher in now. Is He right? I don't know and will he be all right during the Yankees have to give them credit cashman's a pretty bright guy and his lieutenants are pretty bright people look at the team they put together but I was very sorry to see Baton Cisco and on the same score I mean I would tell Susan and Michael all all winter long I wanna see and do our play every single day left field or first base. I wouldn't care if he made three errors every game. Well he's really played left field very well and is outfield tutor. Reggie willits thinks the world of him. You know ICAN it so I I wanted them really to keep an do are because I've been saying on the air on the talk shows. I did this winter that he can be jd. Martinez Nick Kosta Janos Ryan Braun. Those kind of right in hitters. Who hit for high average and power and he can do both so he's lepe is coming along very very well. I know it if stanton is healthy without Hicks. Who's always injured? He's come back from. Tommy John In midseason. You'd have Gardner Incentive. Between Stanton and judge and you are then could be the D. H. Stanton is hurt or needs a day off. Then Miguel can play left field. And they have one other outfielder. That is in question if if there's an injury and that's clint frazier a awfully could hit and you know. Hopefully a defense will be better in the outfield and then my chocolate. So that's what I meant by talent and depth if the Yankees have to go to them they won't lose very good problems right now. Yeah bad thing teams. Do not have that sure for sure you mentioned Delon leaving couple other guys are leaving. Dvd and Austin remind. How do you think departures will affect the team? Well I like both players. Certainly but you know the can't remember this. Oh with Joe. Torre during the great run and Fan came up to him. Well-meaning well-spoken and said Joe one thing I'd like you to bring everyone back and he said I'd love to but you can't do it. You can't bring everyone back. So Labor will play shortstop just fine this great enfield or shallow gleyber. Torres and DJ. Not only do they. Those three tremendous fielders void is healthy. And you know we're recording this in the beginning of March this a long way to go yankees opened. The season March twenty six very early this year in in Baltimore At the present time as I mentioned they have. They have a heck of a ball club. Absolutely the season ended obviously against the Astros last year. I've seen twenty seventeen as well. They stole the headlines this off season aside from Garrett Cole the what are your overall thoughts about everything going on with cheating scandal. It's dominated the headlines. Well not there and dug up. But I'll tell you this think of it this way if you cheated in two thousand seventeen and when won the championship and you cheated eighteen and you got knocked out by the eventual champion in the in the Al. Cia's you trying to tell me you didn't cheat and twenty nine thousand nine lead you. I believe that no and We've all seen the video. What about a thousand times? How to coming home and saying no no research like this must guilty personnel and then running into through the dugout into the I mean. Let me ask you a question. And you've seen all these million sport events if you hit a home run in the bottom of a nine to win the AL CS and propel your team into the world series Aaron booth that you wouldn't stay on the usually stay on the field. Y'All everyone in sight. You jump on the dog pile. Yeah you do a million interviews. And he didn't he ran into the clubhouse naked and came back with a different shirt on. Yeah I I know. It's circumstantial but baby has heavy circles now. The excuses were so bad too shy. And then there's pictures from his shirt off and his wife doesn't like what it takes his shirt off and then the tattoo. It's just that this is bad. It's one more thing I'd mention this on the air. I think it was Susan hundred during a game this year the Houston players were not very forthcoming. When they were in interviews. I mean they slide. Well we had a problem. But it won't happen Blah Blah. Okay I would think the Houston players would be blown away not by the media you know what kind of bums wheel and and newspaper guys and Internet and all but look at the players of spoken out the greatest biggest players in the game. Mike Trout and he never says anything anything. Unless it's the weather. That's it. Aaron Judge Carlo. Bellinger cody cody bellinger. Let the biggest players in the game never seen anything like it. Yes and so believe me. Players never knock each other and here. The biggest players in the game came out. So you know Houston. They deserve it. They'll be under the scrutiny. Already here every away game they play. I don't know what it means because they have a very good team. Yeah but I. It's amazing that the the biggest players spoke out. That has to tell you something. They'll be more motivated the astros this year because like it's everyone against tough though in baseball. Yeah you know and I can see if you playing one basketball football hockey game where it's physical baseball's not how good you pitching? How good their pitching? And there's there's game after game they may say it. Everyone says the right thing but I don't I don't see how the more motivated now one thing they have if you said to me. How will dusty do as manager? How Will Rojo stew in New York? And how will Ron Reynecke do in Boston. They're going to do great because they have great teams. They can't miss in that way. So they'll all be big competitive teams because at talented and talent will out in any sport. Do you believe the punishment handed down by Manfred or soft and not enough like a lot of people were saying. What would you punish them with? Well they I think they must have made a deal with the players and that's why the wasn't heavier now. The punishment should have been a lot of the title. No because what are you going to do with it? It's like are you going to give it to somebody that no one was not a way to win it or I don't know if I would have stripped the I would just like if Alex Bregman couldn't go around saying that he's world series champion that that's holding onto that right now and they're like oh the postseason. It was different but it wasn't. You know not at all. I don't know a lot of a lot of people were. I'm just saying what you're saying if if if it works on July twenty third against Kansas City. Don't tell me you're not gonNA do that. Big Game saw absolutely not. Do you think it was going in general electric science dealing. Do you think it is a big problem in baseball? Aside from just the Astros do you think I mean maybe doing it to that degree but do you think that's like a part of the modern game. That's an issue. There's been cheating in baseball or all sports. You give an inch. They're gonNA take a mile in every sport they'll find a way to get around it I told us on the air so I can tell it on your show in the early nineties. Buck showalter is managing the Yankees. And you couldn't find three more heavier buck ruse reduce than myself and Susan and Michael K and it was like family and We're in Chicago. The old ballpark and they had these spinning ferris wheels on top of the scoreboard and said see that. That's where they spy get our signs and you either turn the wheel or you don't goes or doesn't go and that's how you find out this. I don't think it's wrong. I'm GonNa give you two great stories. I don't think sign. Stealing is wrong at all but not electron stop. I want it done by the player in the Dugout by the coach. So I'll give you two stories. The Yankees had a pitcher years ago. He's deceased is a great right hand. His name was Bob Turley. Practically one the fifty eight world series by himself and he was super bright and when he left baseball they went into insurance. That became a multi multimillionaire and I got to Oman. Old-timers days of but anyway the great story about Turley he he was so great. When you wind up and throw he could tell you what pitcher throwing okay with. You saw emotion or the Hansa. Whatever so talk about bagging the trash cans. Bob Generally whistle and to call pitches for his Yankees and so the story goes that some veteran pitcher went over to one of the Yankees before game and he said if I hear him whistle. You're going down. So Bob Turley. The other great story has to do with the dodger manager in the early fifties was a noted egotists name was charlie dressing. He was such a an egotist and everything was I did this. I did that when he would leave. Area leave a group the players whom he loved to sing. I that was Charlie Dressing. So will the dodgers won the pennant great team and he managed the Nationally All Star Team. And they're in the clubhouse before the game and one of the players goes over to dressing says we'll skip what are the signs and dresses. Oh don't worry I'll give you your own sides so that kind of things been going on forever but you. You can't allow cameras or new angle absolutely technology to go to coding signs which everyone does to an extent and then stealing sides which is what. Houston was doing like with you. Can you can pick up on a pitchers tell baseball on a live. Feed with using interns campus. You can't miss the not good. Imagine Digi Lemay who knew what pitch was coming what he might eight hundred. That's what Stanton said. He said if I do a pitch is coming out ahead Abo. I believe that too. I really do arrive to. Yeah I probably. I probably wouldn't put it past them. You had your streak euro streak. Five thousand. Sixty consecutive games came to a close last year. Obviously at some point you just had to. You took the four games off the eight days and Ruko filled in for you. He's been on our show before How hard was it to and that streak and to see Ryan you know takeover. Obviously I'm sure you have a great relationship with Ryan. Just what was that all like? Well first of all about the streak. It really began the first game. The hawks played in Atlanta in one thousand. Nine hundred eighty one. That was my first hawks game. Let's say it was November third. I've no idea when it was. I didn't miss a game for the hawks braves so the streak is really a lot more games. It goes back to eighty one. I didn't miss a game with the Hawks and braves in the eighties. And the only two games I missed for the Yankees when my sister passed away and had to bury her and the Yankees were in Seattle. They had a day off and they played three. And I got there after two games. Something like that and so they're saying well that's when the streets started my foot and I wasn't. I didn't Miss Games. I add to America as a family. A thing is possible for now. The good thing nine never cared about it. I never went ever to the ballpark saying boy. I've added another game to the street. I could not have cared less. Obviously it means nothing. It doesn't bring in any money or whatever and the only thing I have that it's happened yesterday in the Ballpark and whoever we were yesterday. Brayden to know we weren't in braiding. Oh in Lakeland okay and people will come up to me and they do it all. How are you the Yankees came up to? How are you g? I did every game after. I missed four happily. The Yankees were in the London. Trip killed me right two flights in three days. I couldn't go with the Yankees because my trips were graduating high school so I had to go the next day. Get up at four in the morning which I can do and I did but obviously hurt and I was really sick on the way back and but we had Monday off and Tuesday Wednesday. We played at city field. And so then they were going to Tampa and when the Yankees go somewhere. They never get a day game day getaway game and they get everywhere at four in the morning and so I thought boy. I don't WanNa do that. So that's why I took the four games off and then it it dovetailed with the next week was the all star break so I had eight days off and you know I got better and obviously didn't miss another game for the rest of the year and I don't plan illicit gets sick and missing any games this year. They're so for me as a Labor of Love I get my tail out. You know the day games hurt because I don't get up early Roy. I'm late everything and I. I would be a late everything anyway but now I have an excuse. I've been working nights for about fifty five straight years so anyway the streak is over meant nothing and now we'll go ahead and into someone yesterday you'll build another street that you'll build another thirty more years. I'll sign up to that. Did you listen to those four games on radio and Iran Ruko? And what did you think of him? And was it weird to hear somebody else? Besides you calling it wasn't I didn't listen to radio. The mets are also playing. And in my bedroom I have a great apartment in Edgewater overlooks the Hudson's really. The loved Best I've ever had and I had somebody from Sony. One of the heads of Sony met at a party the Yankee Party they had all their big contributors down and I said to him. You know I can use you. I'm moving to a new apartment. I don't know when whenever it's open and put in. Tv's and he said. I'll give you a name and gave me a name of a guy who did the most I wasn't there I was on the road. They're the greatest job I've ever seen. There are three bedrooms and he put these big screens against the wall. You have to work with the remote in. Let's say the girls room and the boys room and the living room but he put on my instructions to in my room. Okay side by side. Cover up the wall and the king size bed is back on the other wall and it's perfect. What I did is I put on both the Yankee game in the met game Had the sound down and watch the Games. That's especially him to settle that up on. The road is fantastic. You'll have to go through the construction. You came home and it's all done phenomenon. Finally there's after the fire the fire in my in my last place and I. I love the clothes on my back. That's all everything but I had to get myself in gear. Went to a hotel the smartest thing I ever did. I didn't know how long how big the fire was and I thought maybe be over by the evening. Of course it demolished the building and So I had a few months before this new building was going to be ready and it all worked out. I'm very lucky. I'm very lucky guy. It's all worked out. We're lucky to have you to Brian. Ruko have you. What's your relationship like him? Taking over for those four games do you have any say in diversity. Well no no I I. I don't really get involved Ryan's Wonderful Fella I know him. Well I'm sure he did a great job. I didn't hear it and then I had a A medical thing. I had to take one more night off which I did. And after that you know everything was smooth effect whether it was the eight days which it might have been or I had a medical problem and it went away. It was cured. Thank God and from that time I was fine and I started to sleep again. Spent one year not sleeping. I didn't miss any games zone. And so everything's cool so I know you've said you plan to keep going basically as long as you have voices that that's still the case or just gonNa keep power and through the first thing. I have four children in college this year. You think that's expensive. Goodness gracious now one. Abigail is graduating syracuse. So so we're she's a new house off. Loves it doing very well? Actually I was there a couple of weeks ago before spring training so I would be working anyway because I have all these kids in college and actually as long as I. My voice is still the same mom going to work as long as I can. I know in Vin. Scully was about my age. He said well it depends on your health. If you're healthy you know. He didn't do all the games though he just did. West Coast Games uh-huh by all the Games. And you know. I guess I plan to do it until hell tells me no. You're man imperative nicknames. These guys and the whole run calls. What was your favorite new one last year. Well I think Gio show the most happy fella good. I could sing the first line. I do these things and it's gone over very well but there are a lot of people have no idea what I'm doing. They don't know the most happy fellows a great Broadway show with phenomenal music. Frank Lesser wrote music and lyrics but anyway I thought that was that was pretty. Good sock Manmohan Really Aaron Boone. Walks around with a sock man t shirt on. Doug Van sock man. Yeah it works. It works works. Silly is what. What is your favorite part of the job any so you can't you don't get tired of it and you want to keep going forever. How Much Do you love? Is there one thing that stands out as you're just your favorite part of getting going calling games every day? The games come very easy. I told my bosses said at Entercom the new coveted bought up. Cbs as a GAL named Susan. Larkin and I said to her actually the games of the easiest things I do and I gotta get to the game. Yeah I mean I wish I could be you know helicoptered Ryan into my seats powder fingers for Susan gives the intro. I love working with Susan and I love the Bat in love. The Games would be terrible. And now I'll tell you something else. My engineer I have a great producer. Engineer Jack Maldonado and he set up something called Roku well a few years ago. I had no idea that we sound like a disease you know. He's got a bad case of Rocca liked roku virus in my room. I have Roku and I had to make a lot of calls today. Lots of business calls and one. I'll tell you because it's very it's very nice thing but anyway I have Roku in my room and I was watching Making all these calls the Tampa Bay Oriole game so I actually like it. You don't and I and I liked him since I was a little boy and so the Games are easy now. The fact that as I said before they never give the Yankees a getaway day game kills. You kills me kills everyone get into every town at four and. I can't go to sleep right away. I'm up for at least an hour and a half an pack and the poor little drink and and relax. He takes me a long time. And so that's the tough part. The four in the morning as the top part the easiest things the games. And you know it's great with the Yanks the bigger the game The more you like it because it's it's quote unquote important and the Yankees as you know in New York. Everything's a federal case. So you'll I did this on the air yesterday so I can do it with you here. It's expectation and with the Knicks and the jets and the giants. They win game that go crazy. Newspapers talk shows because they never think they're going to win a game. That's why the Yankees are expected to win. And so it makes people always say. What do you think of the Yankee? Red sox rivalry well. It's it's Chris from my mill. It's great for me and any other broadcaster writer because people are paying attention. People are passionate. And that's what you want what? I wanted to tell you the board of governors of the emmys The New York emmys they have. They have a big night. It's GonNa be April eighteenth at the Marriott Marquee plug in grey day by the way birthday and I am getting their number one award. The governor's award also deserves said to me. Something really true. Well you've been so long of course you're going to get it wouldn't have you the. I I've said that you belong there and I hope one day or honoured in Cooperstown in the hall of fame. Is that something you ever think about? Love? I will be as honest as I can. Of course how would you not think it right? It never happened. I don't have the right style guide but if I didn't have the style I wouldn't be. This is my thirty second year the Yankees and I've had nothing but if you're a broadcaster and you're living you know we're not talking about some parachuting into do something that's your living being on the air for radio. Tv Station whatever. You do just Jackie. Whatever it is I have literally had. What would be called great broadcasting jobs for about fifty five years? So if I didn't have that style would have been able to accomplish that so I'm you know I don't think I can tell by a Lotta people that they have brought into the hall of fame. Who have very different styles for mine and Hey Showbiz Showbiz? Maybe we'll make a push for you on the Internet. A little bit shouldn't streak and everything. Yeah I think we can make a pretty good case. You mentioned before before we sat down. You'll have twitter. Obviously you don't go on the Internet and like I forgot the term. You call yourself to lunch. I think you said yours out to lunch. Is anybody out to lunch as much as anyone? Well I'm not I'm not on the Internet. You know the the Crank calls you get first of all. I don't really get they make a call. You know I miss it and I call him right back and you can't reach that number. What are they get out of it? I hooked calls yet. Nothing I guess nothing. Do you get print call from selling a buying whatever right and sometimes I'll get a call and they'll say With this is a call for your visa MasterCard account. I don't have never had visa mastercard so there I can hang up right away and other times. Yes there is a problem with your computer and we hang up right away. Have no computer so I try to keep as as best Iran. But I'm not on the Internet. No I see it again to the podcast. Ah Game I think last year when we were down here you mentioned that you were starting a podcast or your. Yeah I we haven't done much. We're going to do it again soon. Yeah pinstripes and bright lights and what I do is get on. They have the producers who are in in Boston. They'll bring in letters so that I can respond to but for the most part I just till stories and and I hope it works and I did that last year and then during the four days off in the All star break I had said yes. You know the people get you months in advance. And I'm a good guy I say yes then. All of a sudden the day comes on. You gotta get there so I was being paid so I mean I. I should have gotten there and I went. There was a big audience in Westchester. And you know what I did for speech. I did the stories. Joe D story. Ted Williams Story Bob Turley story etcetera etcetera and seemed to go over okay. Everyone loves to hear those stories. I have a terrible voice. Do you think I'd ever be able to be announcer? Let me tell you this when I began. We're back everyone had a good voice. I loved a radio station in New York. More than all the others in the W. W. Am and they played you know Sinatra Ish music and they had personalities who just did their district show. I thought that was the end of the world and newscast is and they all had great voices. Well that all ended. It may have ended with the With talk shows. I sometimes think that radio stations want their talk personalities to have bad voices so they sound like the callers so the call is would identify with them. I'm not sure it's true but I think that there. Yeah I do I do think so and I had a buddy now give his name is name is Ira Mellman and at big strong boys and he did a lot of network stuff for CBS. Especially and he's working sports station in Washington and they fired him and listen to this. This is some business by the way. They fired him because he sounded to professional. That's so the answer is yes you can make millions. Are you kidding? Good especially really long island accidents. Top people joy that one well obviously is not hurting Chris. Russo Joe Benigno and and people like that out so as we wrap up here. There's a few changes that are happening on the verge of happening in baseball. It's one of your thoughts on them. I A battle with relief pitcher. I don't like it. Yeah I mean that's I don't like anybody else. I don't think anybody likes takes away. The strategy and in Nineteen ninety-six. My favorite years Susan's favorite. Youtube was born in because I was born in nineteen ninety Sol. My God you were born then but they named A buddy of Mine Dorey as manager so follow buck and I was real close two bucks still am and Jeff Pohjola. I've become good friends and and they weren't supposed to go anywhere and and you know the rest of the they got the first place. May I stayed there for the rest of the year behind every playoff series and they would win games from the seventh inning on but anyway the only had one left in the bullpen. Graham Lloyd he was great and Joe Torre had a weight. He added weight to use him when he could be most effective to win the game and obviously he did and they did so. I don't like the three better rule for that reason. If you have that kind of lefty and you're going to hold him for Bryce Harper or someone like that you should be able to use them for that than another one may not happen. But we'll start out there. The playoff expansion going to seven teams in each league. Top seed getting a buy and then the other teams picking who they play in the first round. You'd go to fourteen playoff teams. What what do you think of all that? Well I like it because You know a lot of people. Oh it's ruining everything has changed at one time. You know when the Yankees when I was growing up Yankees would win the pennant and go right to the world series now to win the world series. Well that's a lot like football baseball hockey basketball. You have to win a few playoff series. Which a tough but I love the sport so the more games for me is is even better because I like the Games and playoff games of the greatest or and I could see myself. I would hope the Yankees finished first and art involved in this. What a kick. It would be to see all the playoff games leading up to when the Yankees get in but we were saying that the Yankees got the pick. Pick the twins every time the sweep 'em again every great actually only thing that now you know this this you've heard a t in any sport team wins early and some schmuck reporter has to ask the question Who Do you WANNA play? Well they would die before telling you well. We'll just enjoy this for a while under we'll see so it would be very very tough of those teams to pick a team you know. Be careful what you you hope. Imagine the Yankees two years ago. Picking the Red Sox play like motivation. That would start. I mean it just the show itself was probably what baseball wants where the teams would be picking the teams on the show that would gain traction. I personally don't like the by that. The the hopefully it'd be the Yankees for the foreseeable future but that number one seat would have so much time off and baseball is such a a game of routine and like these guys. Don't want that much time off when it comes. You won't be playing almost every day and I just think some players won't like that based off the the long layoff would have. But we'll see another thing Robot EMPIRES The strike zone. Electric strikes on seems like something. We're inevitably heading towards. Well I think because at ten is the yeah the I with the call on I and the technology which I would not understand anyway would have to be phenomenal. I prefer seeing the EMPA- I hate. I hate the reviews area slows. The game of Football Kills Football. I'm the greatest football fan the world and I can't tell you how many times you know on my Sundays where I have the game on on one set in the Red Zone on another and I'm yelling play so I'm not too keen. I like the old days like me. Oh in a where the empire would miss a pitch and someone had done that. That's the best part of baseball on the matter. Getting thrown out fans loved Billy Martin and a panel running out on the empire throwing their hat. Yeah dirt who are the fencepost Tabu electronic robot? We don't want to do that. And also what an anticlimactic way to win a game they have to go to a re review or replay. I don't know if you guys have anything else I was. I was GonNa say just in general twenty twenty season what were what are your expectations for this team. And do you think this is the year that they end they end the world series drought and got it done? Do think this when people predict in any sport championship Super Bowl World Series. How do you? How do you know who you're playing in the first round out? You know who's injured but if everything would go exactly alike. I think the Yankees would have a great chance to beat any team well. The dodgers are tremendous team et CETERA. Et CETERA. I think baseball is going to have a hell of a year. Because in New York there are two terrific teams. And so that's the biggest city will be fully in on the on the Yankees and mets and I can see in the National League East this great division race four-team dirty and in the national league central the same way three or four really good teams so I think baseball's on the verge of having I hope very much of a positive person only see the good things and I think they have a chance to have a tremendous year. Love to hear it John. Thank you so much for coming on your current guest now second year in a row. Maybe we'll do it again next year and we'll talk about how they had a World Series Shamsher number twenty eight. Well we do it again. Next year I'll be very happy. So thank you absolutely johnstone. Thank you John Sterling for coming on the show. Here's the best all stories you'll ever have. You know. I feel like that guy can actually like he would beat out the quarantine if you said. Okay John you start right now. Just tell us every store you got baseball and he would he would beat out the Corinthian in time. That's how good he is one. Sure Yeah and I'm honestly glad we have a season at some point. Ease me back full speed. Every game doesn't planet missing. Anything people said like. Oh you can take a little break here and there. Let's gave note Kerr GonNa go right back full speed ahead. I love that guy we're GONNA get into. Dm's real quick this kind of science corner. But not but I just don't understand watching a lot of movies. Watch Jack Ryan's all that. Why do people duck when they're entering a helicopter? Can someone explain to me? Because the propellers are high up so why are people ducking is if there are ten feet tall thinking? They're going to chop their heads. Chopped off it just things. I've seen every helicopter movie. Well helicopters usually aren't that tolerates kate. You not stand up new kids. You can't stand up an hour. No not inside. I'm telling them into the helicopter like there. There will yeah but to get in. I think you'd have to duck too. Yeah I think I mean. Have you ever been on one? No I've been on one. It's just actually the first time when I was working for counterterrorism in some guy was jumped off the Brooklyn Bridge. We have to turn around so the But Yeah I think he just ducked because just to get it. I mean no no. I'm not talking about like when you when you're getting into the like when you're running up to the helicopter. Evil always doc. Because it's so it's so fucking windy like duck like you're trying to like get through. Looks like they're ducking to avoid the no. What are you know every every solution that we give you? You're like now what I'm saying like they're diagnosed. You're GONNA get it. I don't think I don't think they need the dog. I think duckling is just unnecessary there. Sorry from WHO has never been on more helicopter movies than you from the sure okay. Let's do the deandre sponsor this week by Hawthorn.

I know I thought I was nailing it as I was like doing it like Holy Shit. I must look amazing right now. And not wait. What did you do? My wall walk outs right now. Did I act? I think is GONNA stop. I was what I really ought killing it. It will be. I'm Don fucking of done. Getting in shape on says all ends house probably reaching a maximum anyway where it was like. I was about to Max out. How in shape I can be so. It's like now just GONNA I'll get back to normal and that will go on the journey again. I don't know I can't lift. Weights Corona virus. Man Bad bed Myers by the way I look at it your walls and remember i. I've lost the ability. Said they're ready. I wasn't GonNa Artwork last night to die off like Amazon or like these random websites. Start Buying smart work. See Your Plane Wall behind you Tommy. It's triggering me a little bit. I'm going to buy some Yankee. Artworks works the artist Brighton. Atlanta -partment. Because I keep looking at plain walls that you have behind you. You're playing wall. Just remind me so right. If this antibody smart work it's going to introduce Amazon. I'm the king of my apartment is literally an insane asylum whitewall everywhere this could see. This is behind me. That's my buddies. It's up it's all Yankee stadium in its drawn by every Yankee who has ever played for the team like all the names are just like. That's like the that's cool. I want I want stuff like that okay. Tj Dams. We'll get out here all right. The first ones from Michael Fula says what teams do you think benefit the most from a shortened season based on depth? Anita Yankees would be number one probably. Because everyone's going to be healthy when they come back. Paxton we'll be back. I feel like even Aaron Hicks might be like a week away or something like that. By the time we presume will be back assuming this is all going to be gone by then and Giancarlo will be back. The only guy who gets sucked by the Yankees is demanding her mom but he's an asshole anyways so don't really feel bad for him I think I think the angels have a a huge advance because they don't have much pitching depth but they don't need it if they're hit it like if only had to win like if it's a forty game season. I think they have an advantage because of the short season. Yeah I was GONNA say the mets to until syndergaard went down because honestly like they usually crumble in the second half of the year and they wouldn't really have a second half of the year but now they just Kinda fucked. I mean I guess stroman could step up to them and Stelo but now syndergaard. Dan Really hurts them. I mean the big winner in all this is the astros not even from sandpoint just from like all the heat they were getting stuff is just taking time out and it's not gonna come back you bishops when it resumes just walk. I think it might. I think I think Georgina. Spring training of his kind of reaching a stagnant point and people having this layoff like when Shit gets resumed. People are GONNA come out with fire like every like magic the first baseball game back like Holy Shit now. The the problem is that they won't be playing fans probably or at least it'll be limited sands that right John. People in general are going to be like they're going to be like we just survived like a global pandemic like I don't give a fuck about Seton and shit. I feel like people. Are I duNno? Watch BASEBALL THAN LIKE. Get Mad about cheating. I think you I disagree. Did you see Josh Reading yesterday? I mean guy twitched about Walmart and all of a sudden people are throwing up his and then someone chirped him because he was complaining or whatever and then they call him a cheater and he just responded with his world series ring by the way like this show further. You have literally zero remorse about what you did. You don't give a fuck that anyone and then and then they just responded with his world series stats where I think he had like. One hit the whole post-season and then everyone just calming cheater. People were still plenty vicious despite the core. Don't get don't get yourself. People hit them. Yeah no they do because it's also were still in the Corona Var still in quarantine so they they're lashing out even more but baseball comes back. They might lighten up with some scattered about. I think they might go fucking crazy on the thing with no fans searched like no one being like. We have to wait the stadium for them throw tomatoes at number something but also the Astros. We didn't bring this up but they're still in co right now against their fan. Their own fans are still doing that. Which is just such a funny narrative Get their money back. And they're court like official play. Is that We apologise sincerely. So like it's fine even though. Not One person sincerely apologize. The only apology as people no longer on not so. I don't know that seems like an easy thing. Lawyer could counter be like. Yeah no no out Bregman. Talk for thirty seconds. Jim Crane ran a red from a piece of paper. verlinden literally laughed and people's faces. I don't know if there was one sincere apology. Your career literally just call people liars. I don't I don't think Altuve ages thinks they're going to fuel cells the world series. I don't see one since your apology here. So I feel like a lawyer needs to oppose this end. Just fucked them over. What else we got next one's from at number Brooker. Oh to says do you think all novelty games will be canceled. If there's a shortened season or adjusted schedule Iowa London all survey London Not Donald cancelled in London not happening. I think I think I was probably safe to play at. Yeah every game to be played. Iowa. I was easily. If you're rank all those still possible also because it's in August that helps to relate. It depends on how they shift the schedule around definitely. But we'll know if there's going to be a season by then at least so like that's still in play. All-star game is really tricky. Because I know Fox pays a shit ton of money to have that happen. So there's a possibility that like the season could start right around when the all-star break is supposed to start. That gets tricky. Do you WANNA open with some sort of light exhibition game that you call the All Star game so at least Fox and get their money. I don't know it gets a little tricky. He's obviously you can all star game with a week played So I I don't know what they're GONNA do. Maybe like their opening game to the fans is a fan. Vote like were they. Open the author Star game in L. A. or something I don't know but I know that all star game is tricky to cancel because they paid a shit ton of money for it But I'd say probably if you rank three there it's Iowa all-star game and then London has zero chance and happening. There's no way we're traveling a lot. This is the last one I have. It's from Brennan Mills Says Marty Science Corner. Kinda have you ever seen videos of Helen? Keller doing normal things. She was definitely not blind and deaf needs to be looked into market. I don't have enough time in the data fucking take out that fraud. She is the most multi. What's her name again? Helen Keller Looks Helen. Tell got all these facilities and things on her. She doesn't know sh that's the up line. You wouldn't want these things could you can't see them. It's almost like stevie wonder where she's done these things of so much normal things like I've talked about Braille Brown's fucking crazy. I own I always try and do to my hotel. Rooms like Oh. That's not five or three. I don't get how that works but in my opinion. I don't think she's. I don't think he's blind bat. Yeah I mean that's just like her stevie wonder all pretty much frauds. I feel like that's just like a four hour concludes. There's no way you can do all those things being chance. The zero chance. He wrote a book and she can't talk out of my out of the understand like you're an asshole that you just lie everybody. Yeah okay I think that's the show I'M GONNA keep watching watch savages later.

Have you seen loss now? I have now Mardi never have I was thinking about it but barely has a really shitty ending right right but but that we wouldn't get to that we would only watch the first few seasons which are fucking insane so that might be a show that we have to bitch is thinking about it. Is your mind watching loss? You have no idea what's happening. Try Okay I'M GONNA float that out there that maybe that could be like our Tuesday. Show real quick we just recap loss is. I don't think many people are doing that. I'd say nobody young okay. Semi will decide on that over the weekend. So maybe maybe we'll see a Tuesday episode just out of nowhere.

Episode 130: With The Next Man Up Voice Of The Yankees Ryan Ruocco

"The palm the three the tired at five is the body of these aaron boone the leader his first yeah but the first portrait roy what's up what's happening. Welcome to another condition of the short porch presented by barstool sports. I'm your host up sitting alongside me and my co host my compadres. Tommy smokes thomas cappelli what's going on. What's up good hubbs. How are you pretty good a long time and we have another desk with us joining us. Today we are joined by the hardest working man in the world. He's number seven this year and the big leads forty under forty sports sports media talents. He's the hero who filled in for john sterling w._f._a._n. As well as mike okay for the yes network ladies and gentlemen ryan ricco what's going on. Maybe what an introduction guys i'm. I'm come back off and just so i can hear that. I like that. Thank you guys for having me. This is fun after getting to be on the phone and then getting to communicate via social social media. It's nice actually get to hang with you. Guys in person gets the new state of the art barstool office too fast. One probably didn't end up coming to appreciate we we had if you had you had come in time we interviewed you and ford was actually the last person who saw before forty ole really yeah ford came in and i think it was just like his first or second week on the team and we had boxes packed up thing. I felt so bad. I'm like this poor guy but luckily we see he doesn't care honestly. Honestly you know what's funny like i like. It's amazing though the difference in the field right when you upgrade radio studios. I remember that from when i worked at e._s._p._n. Aradio new york was ten fifty and became ninety eight seven our studios at penn station. We shared with three other radio stations stations. We were like we weren't even really cornered off at all like we kind of all like merged into each other. You know it was a total dump like there. There's a shower in this one. There was a you know an individual bathroom near the studios and there was this like shower in it that was disgusting discussing that like one dude use it people would microwave their fish all the time it was and then we went to the new studios withdrawn west end and it was just like all of a sudden. Everybody's work gets better. You know like it's just totally energized when you like to guess like no no. Please do come in studio now like we'd love to have you. It doesn't smell like fish anymore. Morale's great to have same time. Sometimes you miss like hey it was a dump. It was our dump. You know i feel i am a super nostalgic dude so i can appreciate appreciate that sentiment. I did not miss studios at all as far as that goes but like yeah like when it comes to stadiums and stuff i definitely i definitely feel that way if you we'll not yeah probably not our last office i think we were sharing because it was it was just a studio and then the sirius x._m. Studio now we have our own serious a studio here and we have other podcasts rooms but we were sharing twenty upwards of twenty five podcasts in one room which is impossible. Scheduling is difficult especially trying to get guests. It's like oh like what are you free like. We have got a half hour on wednesday like maybe a little little little better well. I'm happy for you guys. Thank you so obviously sankey not season so surreal if you tell anybody with this many injuries and all that and have the record we do ridiculous but it's also been so surreal for you. I mean could you ever imagine imagine i know obviously you had you had the gig and all that but for how much you exploded in fill in for for kay and sterling i mean what the hell is absolutely. It's it's been amazing. You know like i mean i think people know <hes>. I grew up a yankee fan but i was like i was a die hard crazy yankee anki fan like insane yankee fan growing up. I think you know if you were to ask <hes> you know a question all the kids. I went to school with like you know. It's one thing you know about ryan like family. Feud answer might be. He's a huge yankee fan. That's how big of a yankee fan. I was so <hes> you know so. I've always gotten such a kick cout of being a part of any of the documentation of this team over the last. I guess it's you know it's five years that i've done different variations associations of stuff for yes <hes> with yankees coverage. I did stat back in the day in the booth you know and then the scoreboard hosting so i've been involved in some capacity i see since two thousand six but really the last five years on yes so i've always thought it was just so cool to get to you know just to get to be the voice attached to certain moments and whatever but this year actually have that run you know even though obviously you know it wasn't <hes> you know circumstances that you want you know and you know i. I'm nobody wanted john to have to take any time off. Nobody wanted michael to have to go through the injuries that he did but once you're actually in the gig to to get to like feel like you know you're driving the the yankees ship for a while was it was surreal. You know i mean and it was amazing. You also realize the power of the yankee brand right because i done a lot of cool high profile things in my career <hes> on a national stage as well and i never never got attention. I've gotten plenty of attention and that's been wonderful but i've never gotten attention like i did. During that period. You're the voice of the yankees on both sides food for for for a brief moment in time. That's the way it felt you know and then that was it was awesome you know and was cool for me to is mike my family diehard yankee fans you know so many of my friends so for them to get like just do what they normally would be doing which is watching the yankee games every night and then have me there guy doing it so yeah it was it was it was a it was a really i mean it was just like it was a surreal experience. It was and and super fun and i think also like you know you guys know like if you you you do things <hes> parachuting in you know for periods of time and you know you can handle it and you know it will go well and you have confidence <hes> and you want that you no longer longer runway because not only to show like oh you can handle something but because it's a lot easier when you get in a daily rhythm right and landed lanny feels like you could take a little more ownership of it and you can be a little bit more of a leader and i think that was a part of it that i really enjoyed. You know feeling like i'm not just parachuting shooting in but you know i'm kind of <hes> being relied upon in a little bit more of an elevator role for a period of time so that was a responsibility that i really enjoy excellent. Eh so the yes network gig and i think people saw that come with cake malik you filled in for him before a lot on yes last year past years but with john sterling and he hasn't missed a game in your year whatever it was almost thirty years so nobody really knew okay if he misses a game. Who's the guy so. How did you end up being the guy what was your action like when you found out so my my life the way it happened was so <hes> john had just been <hes> dealing with you know a couple couple different things and and he's just been grinding so much and there was the london trip as well and i think like his boss is thought you know it it might benefit them just to have a little a little break you know and and they were trying to maybe find a landing spot for that and john's always resistant to something like that because he wants to be there every day you guys know he loves this game. You know and i miss a big moment yeah he doesn't and <hes> and and by the way this is an aside. How amazing is his pipes at at eighty one years old. It's just a zero we talked to him in spring training and he was sitting right where you're and it was just so surreal hearing his voice voice of god. It's unbelievable. It's like what he should write a book on. You know the routine to keep himself in shape. He is both physically and vocally this age. It's incredible but anyway so should should make an audio book of that definitely should but so so i guess they gone to a point where they're wondering and marc mark chernoff who is w._f._a._n.'s boss and he talked to john. Phil pelicans flip is so immersed in the yankee world <hes> and he had just said hey. If we have a situation like do you have someone recommend and flip was like well. Ryan should be your guy. <hes> you know i obviously have my own needs and then it was kind of being amplified because of what was going on michael he's like but you know i would definitely i'd have kenny or john cover <hes> if i needed someone <hes> and and then you know you could use ryan and and so you know which first of all i just like anytime. I'm talking about stuff on my own career. I i like to give a shout out to flip because he has been my biggest advocate. From the time i was twenty one years old keith constant you know your own visions for what you wanna do and sometimes you have to be the wants to go. Ask and say like hey like i know can i get a chance with this. Flip has always been like a step ahead of me. I giving me opportunities which is amazing. He was the one who came to me when i was twenty two years old and said like hey this coming up this spring. You do a nets game. You know he was the one who came to me and said you. You gotta do more nets games. He was the one who came to me and said hey. You're going to start being involved in yankees broadcasts and then. I want you to be involved in yankees play by play so he's always had really my best. It's interesting in that regard and a vision for me. Even if i wasn't there myself yet and so he kind of just told mark you should have ryan do it if you're looking to absolute fill in and <hes> and then i was kind of on standby for a period of time where seemed like i might have to fill in a man that tampa bay series stories being near the all-star break. They were like yeah. Let's let's let john get four extra days here july fourth weekend right exactly yeah and i was going to be there for to do fill in for meredith. Yes you did every so that. We can yeah that we cannot do. Both you know it was kind of a fun game just to like run down to the palace. Vows afterwards and get to do it you know and and i told mark i said hey i'm down to do it as long as flips cool with it and he was so it was like that was ah even though i've done several games on t._v. It was crazy the response to doing radio because which speaks to john because you know he's just been a fixture during nap position and and so the reaction was it was unbelievable and i was like damn this is like this is just a different level and it was it was awesome. I remember i was in boston and i was at the beach that day and i had the worst beach. You just never have internet at the beach donors where we were had run. I ran down the beach to find some sort of like lt whatever and then i threw him m._l._b. App because i have the audio and had to listen to your at least a first few innings. It's that's crazy. Surreal stuff like this isn't john sterling. This is ryan worker. That's it that's all it did feel like a historic thing no and <hes> i was actually doing an interview yesterday with poughkeepsie journal. My hometown grew up with you know and i and they were like you know. Were you nervous or did you get nervous during the assignments and i don't get nervous when i'm on air because i'm prepared you know and so at that point. You're just performance beforehand. You get a little bit so in this case i did usually before the i do something for the very first time i will like when i did my first boxing match <hes> a year ago like i was like nervous just before i got on you know and in this even though i've done you know a lot of yankees games the fact that it was this experience of filling in for john right before i was nervous you you know once i got on hoppy noticing the scope of it you know and and knowing that there was added attention on it i did. I felt a different kind of buzz. Leading leading into the broadcast once that was on air it was great and susan was awesome to work with so that mated <hes> that made it fun but that was a that was a special experience for sure you talk about the preparation. How different is your preparation for t._v. Verse radio and do have like a preference between the two for baseball. At least you know i i've done way more tv <hes> you. You know for baseball so <hes> i think my preference lies there. <hes> also just because i i'm so close with our analysts. This and i'm so close with our staff you know like you know you guys obviously see you know you see paul and david and candy and john you know lighter backwards as an meredith ryan jack and bob <hes> but there's also you know we are crew and you guys may because you're so intimately involved with someone familiar here with the names but like our producer bill boland and troy benjamin who backs him up and frank de grace and then our directors john moores. I mean he's as good a director directors. You will find on the planet you know i mean and and then mike medven are tape guy who you you'll see like when you hear the announcers reference something and then all of a sudden on the videos up that's because mike medven is bad ass at his job you know and and dark graphics coordinators are absolutely unbelievable. Luke miller like this do. This is where these say this just to say because you feel like you have an army with you. Don't take that for granted the voices and they don't really understand the whole team behind it exactly illinois and so so when i'm like broadcasting luke now especially getting this extended run like he knew oh like ryan's gonna bring up the stat. I'm going to have to graphic ready and boom. It was amazing. How many times so i think i enjoyed that teamwork part of tv <hes> but i love the control you have with radio you know and there is an intimacy to the personality finality and and i thought you know like working with susan was about as comfortable as i've ever been in my career just as far as like showing my personality personality on air and some of that is the really unique aspect of the connection you feel with the audience on radio in what feels like close quarters and part of that adage just how wonderful susan was as a partner to so the difference to answer your question in a less long wind away which as you can and see that's how i am guys. Lock love <hes> known for about yeah exactly this is much <hes> but with radio you really. You're not missing any of the action right you ever pitch exactly and you so you can always fall back on the action. No matter what's going on in the game and tv there has to be a few more stories to go to right because you can't just call the action shirt you know <hes> i think it is easier easier to kind of dig into your personality which is a beautiful part of radio on tv because there's so many different elements that you are dealing with. It's not just you dictating the content. You have to kind of be a little more selective with your timing. You know <hes> so there are benefits to each each you know and and i think like i doing those radio games. I could not have loved it more and i was like wow you know. I could do this every day. This is so fun you know so so it's hard to totally say a preference because i really enjoy them. Both i deferred yes because there's so many people on the team that i love working with. You mentioned susan using obviously just talk about that whole experience working with her and just things that we don't know like behind the curtain because honestly. I don't think we know a ton about susan at this. She's just you know she's just you know she's john's compadres compadres and all that but you know you work with her. Amazing was all yeah so susan. I think susan is really private. She doesn't do a lot of interviews. I don't think she likes to do them <hes> and <hes> and so she is a very private person so you probably know a little bit less about her <hes> personally but <hes> she's a she's. He's a superfund woman <hes> she i think she like she drinks the fullest cup of life. You know i mean i think she's she's a well culture. Woman who just like knows how to enjoy life and because of that is a great person to have on the road is well you see her. Emeritus adventures on instagram actually caught them. What cannot during the fenway series. We caught them. Walk into the stadium. We were hanging around there with some people and we want. Some guy chased after them. Whatever but her america seem like they're besse yeah yeah yeah. It's it's adorable and they're they're. They have a very funny dynamic together like they could totally kill a show together. They're they're they're awesome together and meredith also just a superfund superfund person so they're great but <hes> but susan is you know she's. She has an incredible encyclopedic nick memory for the stories that she's experienced in this game and that came up so many times throughout the four days that we did the game together just seeing her reference stories that you've never heard because she has limitless amount of them she. I thought she did something that you always appreciate the play by play person she was very generous to in sort of listing my relationships and credentials and that gives the play by play guy more credibility and she was amazing as a partner in that regard saying hey you know you have this this relationship you know which which is awesome so teeing up you know she was incredible. Also like i can tell you from firsthand experience. She is so universally personally respected in that room and it's been that way for generations unless right legend and so she's able to go to tommy kane lee the same way she can go to derek jeter or she can go to giancarlo stanton or you know aaron judge whoever it is and you know people. Will you know they will talk to her her <hes> and so. I think you know knowing that too. I was able to you know kinda. Try and tap into that part of what she does as an analyst because she has this wealth of knowledge from her relationships as well <hes> and so i just <hes> i thought you know she's. She's well prepared. <hes> she's <hes>. She's engaged in every game. She loves what she does. You know <hes> and <hes> and i think <hes> you know you could tell even like there was a cool moment for me when <hes> when hicks the game-tying <hes> homerun yeah i think it was the third game of that series yeah when when <hes> kevin cash brought in the left turn them around down to get my shake shack order from post meets then oh you got to my room and i was like like i'm gonna go down and he's gonna hit a home run. So i kinda take you should then it's almost like a superstitious sacrificing me seeing it for the good of the team and you know what we all have to make those choices did yeah and it was a great moment so everybody wants yeah but like seeing her reaction like i could see the pure joyner face like this team's teams unbelievable. You know just seeing the the the the way she's just immersed in it. I love that because that's how i feel like and and i love seeing that enjoyment i'm in <hes> and <hes> and yes oh it was just she was awesome. I honestly i could go on forever bag ratios another relationship boy's relationship with michael k through all this because you you guys have the fordham connection w._f._a._n. Connection no it must've been super tough for him to miss all that time you know we're talk like wally pipped or anything but was he helpful to you and like how a cow hard was it to see him. Go oh through all that how. How are you yeah. I mean he he like. I i feel i felt awful for him going through that because <hes> like like i i i'm so paranoid about my voice <hes> and so you know if i see anyone dealing with boko things it's it's some the strikes accord no pun intended and and it you know even more so with michael <hes> who was one of my earliest advocates and to know loves to work and <hes> <hes> and loves <hes> you know loves both of his gigs you know and so for him not to be able to do that. I felt awful because he you know this is what he knows you know and and and this is this is always been the foundation of his of his daily. Life is grinding. That man works his atoll you know and so for him not ought to be able to do that. I felt really bad for him. <hes> and and you know i i also like i knew he was in good hands. <hes> the <hes> the anti he goes to is my auntie <hes> dr max april who's unbelievable and then <hes> dr dr april sent him to tell who's who's dr april's close ran and who is the man when it comes to surgeries for the vocal cords so i knew he'd be okay eventually but are you still hate seeing someone because like you know what we do. You need your voice. You know you can't do it. You can't grind through taking away a pitcher his right arm there each other so that's perfect okay very quick so but but you know so so so i always use the example for people like you wouldn't ask me if i was a pitcher to throw one hundred and fifty pitchers every single day and expect me to still be able to perform or not get hurt you. You know you have to treat your voice somewhat similar way right and you know so michaels almost like defied the odds with how long he's been able to do both gigs at the high level he has <hes> but <hes> but you know but but it it requires some rest like one of the things i do is i go to the arrange masseuse. I'm you guys may have heard me talk about this before. I don't know but like cassisi always makes fun of me about it but like i go to <hes> a woman christine snyder <hes> who used to be a broadway singer and now works with primarily broadway singers but also broadcasters and lawyers and stuff and she actually does a manual massage i of the larynx and the accessory muscles because if you're just thinking like if you're if you're bench if you're curling every single day right every single day it's not just your you know you're gonna get literally adhesions in the forearms in the accessory muscles around any affects the stretch of the biceps right so same kind on a concept right. If i'm using my voice every single day all of a sudden i'm getting tension all through the chest neck jaw whatever and it needs to be released in order to be able to get at the proper sound from the larynx so like there's just all this these weird different intricacies to keeping a healthy super super sensitive to win. It's not you know well <hes> and and michael and i for the most part <hes> during that period of time when we check in with each other it was about you know <music> how he was feeling you know <hes> and and just you know trying to you know send him good wishes and prayers and <hes> and also like when joe panic who's my buddy got released by san francisco he had reached out say oh you think you'd go for the mets. You know but we didn't really talk about me on air like i honestly. I don't think it was easy for him to hear any of us definitely during that period of time so i wasn't expecting him to you know be texting me every day. Hey hey man you sound like i. I wasn't expecting that and i don't think you know i you know. I don't think that's really <hes> you know i don't. I don't think that's the place he was in and honestly. I don't need that either. You know so so our communication throughout that period of time really wasn't about how he felt about my work at all it was about how he was feeling whether anything during that crazy stretch redoing obviously you okay and sterling not taking phone calls or shaving your voice in any type of way yes a lot of that you know the only because i was going through stretches because i also like for example when i got on <hes> doing the <hes> tampa bay series i had had a last minute fill in for a game at citi field and <hes> because that too i was flying in day of tampa then i did the four games on radio plus. That's the meredith role then that night. After the game i flew to vegas and i was doing double headers for some release close those four days and then then flew on a red eye from vegas and then had yankees first game after the also breaking out of some stretching yankees. They're like so it was it was also that you know and then there was another stretch where i left and went to do like <hes> w._n._b._a. All star game so it was you know combination of uh of the it was a lot more yankees than i thought i was going to have but it was also <hes> mixing with the other assignments so to be super careful for my voice so even like <hes>. I think <hes> look record got on me. The other day down the greco micro case co-host who's a friend of mine but because he was filling in for stephen okay on his show wanted half neon and i think it was when joe went to the mets and i was in middle one of those stretches and i was just like i can't sorry i gotta rest my voice. The only person i really talked on the phone during that period of time with my fiance taking any fights. They don't talk no yeah well gratefully. We don't really fight anyways saw so but yes i i literally and she was super cool and understanding about it to where it was like. I talk on the phone for five minutes. I could text the rest of the tell you a text. Do you mind texting. I don't mind i would prefer that like i. I honestly i don't like talking on the phone and it's it's the worst thing for your voice <hes> <hes> and so i had a lot of like periods of time during that were like because i do i can communicate with my parents almost every day on the phone but during that time i wasn't talking to him on the phone or are they just no. They wouldn't even call me because they know like now you gotta gotta rest of your voice but i don't think my mom would be doing that. I think she we know they're just text me instead because they know by now how paranoid i am what if i if i walk in and this has been this way since i was twenty one years old if i walk into into a loud restaurant or bar i walked right out. You know that can't my friends no. I can't stay like that's not where i can hang out you know yeah and then there's other times. It was just like hey. I just know i need a day the same way of kind of knows their arm like i know like i need a day where i'm just not really talking or. I'm not going out to dinner or whatever like. I won't go out out to dinner two or three days in a row. If i know i have games coming out you know because i know that's gonna tax voice so also like there's tricks like suck on a lozenge or when you're talking if you're going to be if you have to be somewhere or john does something what was sterling telling us what the thing we know he holds his yeah does because has it forces him to like project forward of like instead of straining his larynx. You're telling us a few things before we started recording uh-huh that's right you know so one of the things that was cool was like when i was in that before like date like as yeah yeah exactly warm up. I wore my voice before all communications. That's right yes but i actually the one of the most fun things for me was like seeing the rest of the guys do that like during the broadcast so like by the end of the stretch because i'd never done games with paul o'neil before i've known him since i was nineteen years old and we have great relationship but we never actually done play by play color together and and by the end he was in the booth like before each game going remember did yeah yeah he's. He is hilarious. Yeah so like everybody kind of like got. Kinda got into the vocal exercises which was cool. That's how much fun is working with paul o'neil where it's just you and him dancing what oh so funny you know what like what i love about paul and what i think is his greatest attribute as an analyst he can turn nothing into something. You know so if i if it's an eighty two game you know i can just say to him like you know paul. You haven't really eaten a lot today what's going on. I know all of a sudden. We have a half inning worth content. You know like or you know i can look at someone in the crowd and say paul. Would you ever wear a hat like that. You know like and he's just just gonna make something out of it. You know and so as a play by play guy. That's an incredible luxury to be able to just basically say anything to your analyst and no they're gonna make it entertaining. That's a guy need on the podcasts. Oh my gosh he'd be hilarious. Yeah <hes> throughout this ron. You've got obviously meet a bunch. The cool people <hes> we had brian axelrod who was a friend of barstool knows important gu-guy tweeted at us to ask when you're going to have all the members of the group chat on our okay so what who's in this you him see see who else yeah so. It's <hes> axelrod who <hes> and it's actually it's funny because like you guys ever go. He knows everybody he runs <hes> conor mcgregor proper whiskey yup yup and he used to be the man who ran do say <hes> for jay z on also was involved in a spate champagne but so bryant like but it's funny because brian ryan kinda like looks like a tough guy and he's involved in the nightlife and sorry bri but he's actually the sweetest man on earth so so not to ruin <hes> the the roussy you're putting <unk> out there acts but he so he's in it and he's amazingly supportive and just a great deal doesn't fall twitter really well. After this episode he will don't really. I understand that he he will so it's it's an axe c._c. <hes> then it's a matt siegel who <hes> matt matt is he. He used to work at a rock nation with axelrod and now <hes> matt actually is involved in a really cool financial project project kind of merging athletes in different d._o. Ventures and stuff but he is just like i always say he's like the morgan freeman from mm shawshank like just figure out a way to get it done. You know you're like you like a matt. I you know i need a table at this place or can. Can you help me get tickets or can you get me on the phone with will smith you know like somehow we'll figure out a way. I liked yes like he. He just like oddly knows everybody. Everybody has these amazing relationships with all these different spheres of people <hes> and he also just like is the person who gives shit to everyone you know like so. He's that guy in the group chat like he but but you know he always have your back. You know he's loyal but also a total pain in the ass. You know like that guy and then the other guy biography chad is matt nighmare who is one of the <hes> yorkies clubbiness <hes> who whose dad <hes> our runs <hes> a getaway sports which is the company that takes care of the actual travel for all the teams and they come in and out of town stuff very successful asheville company and matt <hes> is an amazing dude super smart so nice and he he he takes care of a lot of stuff as well like <hes> with the the yankees are really really close so and we've all known each other like you know for like seven eight years so we all play different roles in the group says their name for the group shot to me. Not what's the name of the group chat. That's for you bitch fuck it used to be i forget what it was before that but like put anytime at one point it was somebody's album came out and they always make fun of me for loving eminem and just being obsessed. Ask them and i'm like i fan boy every single track that he comes out with you. Know don't don't know he's my guy over freaked the guy you are my guy i will even like last season a game of thrones like that's my show yeah. I know the last three episodes. Were you know were dog talk. Yes but that's my show. I'm not gonna. I'm not gonna trash song albums or whatever so anyway at some point. I think it was somebody somebody released an album it wasn't it wasn't jae coal but it was like i don't know who it was. It was it it was somebody in like. I feel like that was around the same age bracket and you know and i just responded. They're like recode. He think the album and i was just just like his albums. Don't penetrate my world at so and so then that was the name of the group chat for a little was his albums. Don't penetrate my world and then once he did his thing in tampa last year. We changed the group jad name to that's for you bitch. It stayed that way allows him now. Yeah we're taking time time out from this ryan ruko interview to talk about time.

There's an do this whenever he says like. I am something he'll say like. I am whatever that becomes then his new name like in our phones like the most recent thing is typical. He goes yeah yeah. I'm not a dark sex guy. He's having sex in the dark so his name right now number pops now dark sexy guy. He's had some just like czar ones. I ah terrific meet a guy like that and you're out you know it's very it's very important that yeah exactly yeah. No i definitely played the role of easy target in our group chat and in other group chats i have like i don't play that role big dog yeah exactly but in this one i always say like i am happy to be a prop for entertainment. That's how i feel on air to. It's like you can make. I always tell my analysts that like don't be afraid to make fun of me like i want. Whatever's ever is good for the on air products so in this case what's good for the group chat it matt siegel ragging on me every second of every day. I shout out my group chat. That's baseball susan. They'll kill me because oh yeah hey you gotta do and so those are my guys but when you drill a call i actually i was texting you for a little bit. After every time you had a big call you nail that as you texting your group like yo that was my call. I crushed that occasionally yes and like i i will like occasionally sent a clip of of something and been like your nail dad or whatever and then <hes> axelrod came back recently and i think maybe it was the <hes> i i don't know maybe it was my radio call of hicks his home run to tie it or maybe it was some from minnesota game but like it might might've been the game on and catch or or the hick homer <hes> to put them up but <hes> axa pasted the clip in the group. John was like see right right now. This is how you do it. You let us say it was a great call and so they'll take care of it but you know what i do like i guess so giddy doing like doing stuff like sometimes i can't help myself. I'm like yeah. You got this call telling you. It's like i know this one. You know like 'cause other groups do just accurate fixed. It's all like pretty you know high profile people. I can can't send it to like a random friend from home was working nine to five. We fucking get it. Can you call the yankee funny you don't. You know it's funny. Actually is like i swear like all my friends. Are i have the greatest group of friends and they're just like so happy for me that they they don't ever look at it like that like they relish the moments that i get to call and they experience them to you know so yeah like i have some but like a lot of times people are sending it to me like you know like oh do love love this call a crush that call or whatever you know so i mean sometimes i will also have a four horsemen group chat with my three best friends from college. <hes> justin shackled blueberry sally and bobby coil and we will <hes> we will say justin does the scoreboard hosting yankee stadium and so we'll send some stuff around there too. Sometimes i'll play let yo you got to hear the split. Whatever you know like even the other day. I was on with mad dog <hes> and <hes> on m._l._b. Network and i grew up die hard. Mike and the mad man like i mean i listen didn't know grew up in this area. Sports fan like you know that was one of my motivations for wanting to get into broadcasting. You know so like i would listen from one to six six thirty every second that i was off and if i was in school the second i was out of school. Never listen to music. It was always was always that yeah and it's funny because now when i'm in the car i i like i'll only listen to music or podcast. You know it's like it's weird how that changes but <hes> but i i listened to but being on chris chris this is i'm. I'm mad dog school you know and like so like in in the group chat like that was a big thing for the four horsemen. You know it's like oh look. You're on with mad dog. You know so like yeah. It's i mean it's fun sharing that stuff and people also know like even when i'm like being self promotional and that stuff i'm trying to do it in a silly good natured sure way you take yourself to exactly exactly you know same thing like if you screw up edwin encarnacion hit a ball in tampa that i thought was absolutely absolutely crush and it goes to the back. You know just like oh well. You didn't get that one guy yeah exactly you. Gotta have some fun with that. <hes> obviously seize seize your your coast or juicy two incredible year for you guys. You guys have been doing the shift this year which is awesome lawyer in those guys. I honestly can't pick a favorite interview because they're all just really really really good. Although the britain one really shocked me how good was he. He really really good totally right. You don't you don't know that about his personality l. d. but he is he. He's one of the most like interesting fun smart dude on a team like he. I say i didn't know oh how affable he was until this year. I didn't really get to see all that from last year now. This is one of my absolute favorite guys talk to you in the clubhouse and i love all all these guys but he is just he is awesome and i thought so too like that. You know how you know. You guys know when you're doing a podcast. There's just like everything flows. If it's not like hard to come come up with stuff. The guest stuff yeah like so britain was totally that way so he definitely is one of my favorites for sure but obviously so c. She sees the coast and everything i mean. How bad do you feel for. The guy got what he's going through right now. It's brutal. I feel really bad for him. You know 'cause i know like i know the most frustrating part for him is. He knows he could still get guys out. You know so that's the thing that i think <hes> frustrates him like it's not like his stuff isn't there you know when he has has if you look at those stretches where he's pitched well this season his knees felker felt not good but better he's always yeah pain exactly but it's felt a a little more manageable and he's had result you know and those those games where he hasn't have been around where the need just is like you know it's not even just a pain pain tolerance thing it's an inhibition thing you know and and so <hes> because in order for him to try to control his pitches he needs to be closed with his right leg in a certain way away and at a certain point the need just doesn't allow that <hes> and then all of a sudden you know it's harder for him to locate and he he can get hit but at this point i mean he does not like his pain. Tolerance is ridiculous. I would've thought it was retired three years ago yeah right exactly so for him to <hes> to be battling. Doing you know and i know he just wants to. He wants to feel like a part of all this you know when he is and he does and if he didn't throw another pitch his presence in the room eh makes him a far too and just said that exact thing yeah and it's true it's people in an analytical world. It's easy to be cynical about a comment like that. But it's true you you cannot put in absolute value on you know leadership presence amongst the team and you guys know it just think about if you're out data gathering and there's one person you don't want their changes the entire energy chaib versus having strong leadership and so his contributions to this team extend far beyond and what he's doing on the field but i know he still wants to be out on on amount in some capacity in october contributing and see him doing that. Do you think you'll make it back. I do yeah i do. I think i think he will make it back like i said we're sending them so maybe comes back for like if it's really not going to come back for like a batter on the last home mm stand and you know it gets stemming beyond that now that i think that will happen no matter what but i i still think he i think within the next you know i think somewhere somewhere midway through september. We will see him again. I believe we will see him again. Some capacity for a start or two even if they're abbreviated. You know i do think we will. He knows always how to. He knows how to manage it so like he knows how he bounces back. This seems like a little more like different than managing it though his prior i'll since have been scheduled almost yeah whether they don't want to say that or not but this seemed more like abrupt yeah he i think he was definitely you frustrated and down about about this one <hes> but but you know from talking to him. I think he's also confident right now that he will. We'll get a chance to be back on the mound pitching <hes> and david cone <hes> mentioned this the other day and you know he was like look. I look at my two thousand you know and i still i always have that piazza out. No matter what you know you have that game five two outs in the fifth getting getting piazza out you know and i think you know and he was kind of saying that as a source of <hes> hope for sisi and i believe if he can look get it that way right if he can just if he can somehow find his way to that moment you know all of a sudden like that's that's enough to feel like yeah you know i i was able to get on the mound and put my stamp on it in some way and i just have a faith right now that somewhere throughout what i believe is going to be a long extended magical run. He's going to be needed needed in some capacity. You know maybe it's two innings in an extra inning game. They open right off gaming. It's the tigers. I thought thought he might have yeah yeah because i think he might have started a game. No i don't think i thought i saw a long number where he's like. One of the pitchers hasn't i can. I don't know no. I think the tiger thing didn't happen was the game got rained out after one inning and then he came back and pitched. It's like i thought there were two days later. In twenty eleven also look this up on the internet one thing that has not proved that the new off you also have fifteen tabs open openly. I'm always i always have forty five thousand tabs on your phone to the same ohio pad tabs galore or life but but i do think that somehow a circumstance will rise. We're hoping needed for a moment you know and and and you know it could be to get one left the out it could be to throw a couple innings out of the bullpen or it could be star. Never know what's going to happen. You know like and just throw being opener three or four like i. I just think that <hes> i think that somehow he's still will be a contributor on the mound in some way in october. That's a fitting way to go out for sure game five twenty seven a._l. D._n._c. came out of the bullpen for an inning and a third two hits one run to walks for strikeout so that's it. That's all so. Isn't that a lot while he's done that that i remember. I don't know if there's anything else that was game. That was game five of the a._l. So i think he was thanking that gave the detroit three two yeah okay yeah yeah okay. That's all right. The three or four was a rain out in detroit post start against like furry lander right and then yeah that's why he was available always like ooh or no. You know what i think it might have been was a game one and then like start. Nova started yeah yeah exactly. I think some weird happened like that but yeah. I think he'll be back in some capacity to the here. <hes> we had you on before the season started and we did season predictions yours not you famously said judge would have the greatest season the history of the yankees. <hes> didn't come out to be true but i will say i will say if if he didn't have his two elsa month injury. I still think maybe it wouldn't have been that but it's still would have been tremendous. You know because he's a prediction a little better that it's it's bec- it's not good that he got hurt but if you just like wasn't producing then we give you yes exactly right totally crush me given that he missed two months sir. No you'd like so how about this. We'll just say he'll have an unbelievable october. Okay like let's say we won't it. It'll just be aaron judge. He'll get on base forty four percent of the time and you'll have an opiate somewhere around nine fifty. He'll do as i said. It's not to my own horn but before they went out west. I said we're going to get like he's coming back boom. He was back. You know what this is. I think the greatest eight is testament to aaron judge. We've seen him go through significant struggles in the big leagues and always come out on the other end you know when people pulled out him he just always resurfaced so if you think about it think think about what he went through the end of his you know twenty sixteen where it felt like you know he struck out whatever was fifty percent of his at bats right and then in twenty seventeen. The first half of the year is one of the greatest first apps in the history of the yankees i then he goes through this gully after the all star break and the homerun derby dealing with the injury picks it back up has an incredible september then goes one for twenty money in the l._d._s. against the indians. I think fourteen strikeouts and then has an a._o._l. C._s. where he would have been the m._v._p. Series had they wanted and and i think we even saw that that you know we. We've seen that multiple times throughout his his career where he goes through periods and comes out the other side so that's why when he was going through these struggles i was just thinking talking like you know i was thinking that's baseball susan. I was like he's going to come around. I've seen it. I've seen this story with this guy and watch out when he does buckle up and that's exactly exactly what happens. It's something to do with that. He was not trying to pull the ball for a little bit because he's still dealing with the injury a little bit and he's only going right field 'cause now which is like a different guy right yeah. I don't know i mean 'cause when i would talk to people around who work with him and stuff. They would say they don't notice the injury at all. Maybe there's some sort of subconscious where getting swing back he was really focused on right field. I'm not sure it was beltran. Quote that came out that said he would not be one hundred percent this year coming back yeah. That might have been true for a little bit. I think i think he's pretty hard so yeah. Exactly you know i mean and i think it's a lot of times. It's like you know. It's easy to say those kind of things like you know he's not going to be one hundred percent till the spirit in a lot of times to perform in the big leagues. You're not one hundred percent. You know like i mean. How many days do you really feel like you're absolute peak. Physically you know i mean and so you have to be able to perform a little bit less than i think <hes>. I mean no doubt i'm sure as he's gotten further and further away from the injury. It'd be natural to feel better and better but right now <hes> yeah. He looks like you know peak aaron judge. Your prediction was tanaka top five cy young yeah which take out like three starts take out the boston. We got the bucks out. All boston starts and i mean it might be okay. Okay and mine was guaranteed by the bold predictable sanchez was going to start was thought like roman will be the start of this year so i don't wanna hear that you know what i'm glad you're paying service to sanchez bouncing back and i love it when you guys play the clip of whoever it is laughing about when i tweet out originally gary yoga and we need to video tweet video right now. This guy is one of the most under appreciate it great players. He really is to dudas thirty. Four home runs in in what ninety three games or something. It's rentable yankees already right yeah exactly he did it while missing you know. I don't know what his i l stints have a total enough to talk about a hundred games. Yes it's incredible and he's played great defense. It really good and you're not talking. Defense you know is like no said a word about a passed ball and like months no and i think i told you this when i was on with you guys for the year. The guy is a like like they love him. You know and the pitchers they appreciate that how much he works he works. You know so <hes> it's i think like those little things aren't appreciated enough and so i'm glad that you are tooting your own horn prediction because it's also tooting gary and he observes you think that guy was a near post. Who's who's worst taking some shots at you. What is garbage human trash. He like he will like <hes>. It was such a minor thing it's like he. He's just criticized like very specific things like he. He criticized me for calling the yes cameramen the greatest in the world and he was like how would he know he just got here. I would know because i've been working with the network since two thousand six n._b._a. Work for a lot of different now. I do a lot of games gammerman yeah you you could but i like i like it was like oddly specific things but he had like a different one. I feel like every couple days. He was like he hated that that i use the term like high leverage reliever all right bro- like if that's not why that's not for you but i did think the way he called out gary was to your point was like extremely unfair and it was not <hes> i mean it was par for the course with phil mushek like <hes> but he you know saying like you know he doesn't know the game. He clearly doesn't know the game. Let me tell you talking to me. I mean look he. When you're our media personality or when you're when you're up somebody critiques media right like that is your job. You know so i so i give certainly way with right but my problem is then going after the players like that when you don't spend a second around you don't know them at all. Have you don't ever go in the clubhouse clubhouse. You don't know anything about the way that guy works. That guy works his tail off. If you were to ask the yankees pitching staff about his cerebral nature calling a game they would all say he's doing a tremendous job with the game planning so don't tell me he doesn't know the game. That's totally unfair. You want to criticise me or anybody else. Who's on air. That's cool because you're just criticizing what you're hearing work wise. That's fine like you're not. You're not getting anything underneath the surface of what you're seeing even if i disagree with you. I don't really you know that's fine. That's your job. That's cool oh but like to take like a personal shot at the intelligence of gary. Sanchez wasn't surprised considering the sources coming from but to me that was totally uncalled for for end completely inaccurate. It'd be like a game be really ken. David offer another beat report in the middle of his game recalculate by the way fucking awful call from ruko. This home are you. You got to let us know yeah yeah exactly right. It's just like that's not your lane. Gary more more fucking fire exactly know what e gary sanchez here all the criticism all the way as he walters into the hall of fame. You know that's our goal down. I can't say enough of how bounced back this year. I could go on for literally hours so happy happy for that guy needs to oh so obviously you doing. All these calls everything. What is the best call of the year for you think you think it's <hes> the pick up. We'll just in general as your career being the yankees guy. The judge home run against seattle gary tampa shot this year that was that was ridiculous and then hicks obviously. That's i mean that's legendary made sure for your wrote aware miniature what what stuck out for you is like your favorite call so i definitely <hes> the the ones you mentioned like i think i still might choose the judge one in seattle as my all time favorite just because there was just such an absurd bomb and it was is like of organic orgasmic reaction to it. You know like battery. I actually don't like it was just like the majesty of the flight of that ball just like just preposterous to see so like i might say that one <hes> i loved loved the to hicks at home runs <hes> with this year like the radio call in tampa to tie tie it and then the one in minnesota. I really feel really good about those. One people forget that he was like he tied that remember the catching yeah but he's he's the one who down to the last hour talk men worked great walk walk and then i guess the tough lefty and <hes> and then hicks first pitch ambush and just smoke that home run so i would say probably and and hicks catch i i felt good about all those the part of the hicks captain nerd it out on you guys like the port i like most about the hicks cashcall <hes> was actually the end of it because i love alliteration and i think i said like a a fitting finish to an unforgettable night and like that's how that's how it fell right like all of us who watching that game like it felt like this game can end in some benign way the way it's is gone. You know that was one of the craziest baseball games i've ever seen really we hyperbole and exaggeration got thrown around sports all the time. That really was one of the greater games off i it it was just unbelievable so i those two from minnesota hixon running catch tampa. I know now i'm giving you multiple instead of one and i i like the torres grand slam call against the red sox. I like to <hes> yeah. I like everything that comes out of my yeah. No i i you know what i like. I always say like with this team. The provided unbelievable moments content. You know like i i really stepped in it. You know getting this opportunity because i got a chance. I just happened to be the guy who got to be on the mike for all these ridiculous moments that this team has come up with so you know because of that there's multiple ones i could choose from but they're less to do with my call and more to do with the fact that this team has just produced so many to get these amazing moments sure it's crazier. <hes> so shift will shift to like looking ahead by twenty games left in the season and playoffs. Do you guys that are still hurt. Batangas savvy montgomery giancarlo hicks. Who are those guys like do think or couple gaza play the biggest roles down the stretch saville's savia. It's the guy who i think is going to play the biggest role in the playoffs. I mean i think i think all those guys will play big all five on the playoff roster. Yes you said savvy sava's montgomery and call hex no. I don't think montgomery will i said it looks pretty good. You know what maybe he will be yeah. I wouldn't say it's impossible like but it's a little harder to find the definitive role for him. I guess you know <hes> compared to the other guys like i think i actually think man. I think batanes office is going to be enormous for them. <hes> because inevitably one of your trust and relievers falls and fails at some point in october. It's just the way it goes you know and <hes> and you end up relying on somebody else and and <hes> tim in two thousand seventeen and getting out right cleveland exactly and last year he was ridiculous. He was unbelievable. One guy you totally trusted right so i kind of i think batanes and severino are gonna play huge role. They were really encouraged by potenza says <hes> lives of the face giancarlo or something like that but they were really encouraged by everything yes yes and you know those guys know as long as they put their fingerprints on this team in october they can get over the fact that they haven't been able to contribute the rest of a year and so i think all those guys montgomery i'm not sure i think the other four definitely will be on the playoff roster and i think that you know i think severino you know we play a really big role. I think will play a really big role. Also i think there's a lot of motivation with several because obviously he signs this deal you know so he it feels like he has to live up to that at some point yeah and he struggled in the postseason you know he has struggles whatever so he he's gonna come out firing pissed off which i'm i'm gonna love and he's gonna be screaming. Hopefully every pitch just thinking about right now. I'm like getting so giddy. Oh my gosh i can't wait for october is gonna be so sick i i you know i'm just i'm praying to god that they have their entire retire squad healthy for october. I just i want them to have to make those tough choices. Show like i you know i know they have the depth to be able to withstand you know losses but i want to see him with all their options and see how it goes. <hes> and i agree i mean even if seventies starting a game and giving you three innings where he just blows it out you know or four four innings like that might be enough. I think that you know the other thing is we know and i kind of felt this way going into the year right like perfect the yankees to be at their best in october severino has to find a way to pitch well right and so and i think that <hes> that may be a little less it's true because of how creative they can get with the amount of arms they have in their pen and because of the way paxton stepped up as you're clear cut game one guy but i still believe that you know for them to be at their absolute. Best severino has looked like his absolute so you just you think paxton extend is the game of hockey over tanaka. I will give him the ball game. One no question okay to to me you know i had a conversation with larry rothschild and this really stood out to me because larry is first of all he's one of my favorite dudes and he always as like straight out of central casting for pitching coach right like you know he has kind of this like it feels like the way you know but he's actually got this beautiful heart and <hes> and he cares about this pitching staff you said on your podcast. He's there literally everyday yes he. This dude grinds grinds works his tail off care so much <hes> and i mean he i mean he knows his stuff and we your critical of him surco. We've definitely been critical. I mean that's okay. You know that's part of that is part of the gig but i'm telling you right now from you know will the from what i know about him and the way he works and also what he has to deal with <hes>. I believe that you know you couldn't find a better choice and he he he sat with him and he said you know. I really believe that. If we're going to go and we wanna go. This guy point paxton has to be you know he's gonna he's gonna be grill and he said and i believe in his mentality. You know people talk talk about like oh. Can you handle october. He's like i'm telling you can. He has the mentality to handle october and bothersome no and it was interesting to me though because this this was like right this was during his struggles this was right before he was about to take off and i thought i don't know if he you know mentally can handle in this situation because i didn't know if that was contributing to why this guy was seemingly filthy. Stuff wasn't getting out right right and the fact that larry was that bullish on his mentality showed me that he must be built in the ways. You need to be to handle new york this time of year. No that doesn't mean he couldn't get sheldon. Start that happens it happens to everybody but it made me feel like he can handle it and then the complementary piece to all of a sudden this confidence in his mentality was who's the way he changed using the repertoire and you know instead of going in an n. n. On righties with you know fastball cutter fastball cut fastball cutter where they can you know there's not enough of speed difference differential <hes> different different so you think this offer but you know do you you could see the hitters were just kind of cheating on a cutter or they just there wasn't enough of a difference in velocity syncing. Larry talked about this. The back door curveball would be key to paxton. They reworked you know they reworked his repertoire. I think they kind of you know probably said okay. I know what the analytic said about his cutter into pass gas what we need a different mix and <hes> they found him and and that's what gives me so much hope for this guy is just seeing how he's pitched differently over the seven start stretch where he has thrown way more curve balls. He's throwing them for strike so often the swings. He's getting on his fastball now. Because of that you know and how much nastier it's made his cutter i look at that three pitch mix and he's even throwing more changes to and it looks like a pretty good change up. Maybe four or five a game instead of you know one every four stars i i i think he for me. I give the ball game one. I have no hesitation you. It's weird 'cause they're going against the analytics like this. You wouldn't expect that ever. You know you yeah pretty much well. If sonny gray is saying what he says they made him forcibly throw the way he didn't want to and now we're in cincinnati and being an asshole and contending for the cy young and all that boyd which we all knew it was gonna have anywhere right but so point this is this is where i think sometimes you know. The analytics falls a little short right and tom someone who fully embraces them and knows that the yankees have done as good a job as anybody in baseball at using analytics to find undervalued assets right just look unbelievable. Komo didi void talk men. <hes> drill hicks gio. I mean dude pitching the anybody means endless like yeah so oh i i think the one area sometimes though that feels like there's still a disconnect and maybe this is just my own naievety is when it comes to pitch selection because this idea that you know opponents hit one fifty officer pitch when i throw a twenty five percent of the time so they're also gonna hit one fifty off if i throw it fifty percent of the time i'm sorry that's not the way baseball working like more an art than a science exactly and so i think that that as the area where there are still some sort of a gap if at least as far as i understand it at this current moment in time and maybe that's my flaw but i think what the yankees season will larry rothschild and james paxton were able to do during the stretches say okay. What is the art that we need for this repertoire to work because we know this stuff's nasty and i think now they found the formula and maybe it was a little different than they would have initially thought analytically but guess what now it's the mix that's working. I like that one of the last seven seven starts. He's got to do something here a last night. I thought he's gonna throw a perfect game. Yeah i mean he well. He just looked no he. He looked down. He was your shoving generally thought he's going to strike breakout twenty guys. I was like i was going to happen. We've got the blog. This next couple starts like that recently. You know where he just like. He i mean come on that. Start against the dodgers cheers going up against the ridiculous offense in their ballpark where they're dynamite and when the yankees needed a win after that oakland series and that's what i'm talking about the mentality with larry he was talking about you know just look at the way packs handled that spot you know and here here's the here's the flaw in all of this. He could star game one and he gave up five runs in four lawrence. Okay that doesn't necessarily mean. He's not built for october. No you know i mean like just stuff right exactly andy pettitte who's my favorite athlete of all time as you guys know. He could not have had a better mentality for octo- he's still had a couple of starts where he got schnookered joe. I mean like that's just part of it. When when you when you get enough chances and that's baseball averages yes some days headers exactly i mean you know hey. There's there's there's a reason why it's not it just the most dominant starting staff that wins in october every year. You know i mean some of these guys just sometimes it's another day so but but i trust them i do. I think if he gets it's five or six postseason starts. I think we're going to see a lot more good than bad with paxton athlete. You're gonna see a couple where you say like man that i just want us to game. What do you think the first inning struggles were like with him. What was that i dunno. It's weird. I think he should start the second inning well then the second. You just doesn't work <hes>. He's figured out the last couple yeah so. I hope hope that can right. Is it three straight. I think he's listening to i although the first inning bet still hits because the team's scoring i've made a lot of money off that first thing so you know like i think that yeah i think hopefully he's figure that part of it out to it's weird but who's to say even if he gave up two runs in the first inning you know in his in game one of the l._d._s. maybe throws in six shutout innings after their you know or maybe he just shoves for five innings strikes out eleven and then turns it over the pen. I i know right now. That guy is the team's best starting pitcher. I am going to ride that guy because i think for the yankees to win. He's gonna pitch well fair enough. We talked briefly about the twenty fan roster. Let's just run through it. What we think so voice sorry. This is if everybody's healthy yeah. We're gonna do everyone's healthy so locks a have odyssey voight d._j. Geo glacier didi gary gary judge gardner stanton roma and those are the hitters locks. I have no he'll mine that was ten ten here okay and then and in terms of offense talk mabon edwin and ford. I think eddie will be there. Definitely the board probably won't if everyone's healthy. I feel like and then it comes. This probably decision be made between talk when and mabon right so i think yes i think it's going to be tough and also you know some. It depends on what's going on mavens wrist to you know <hes> you know. These are the my dad always use the phrase high class problems like these are high class class problems right because you have guys who really want on there. It also depends how many like how many position players do we think they're gonna take like thinking maybe thirteen yeah i would like thirteen thirteen yeah. You're not going to take just twelve no chance in the playoffs. I don't think you're gonna do that in play offs <hes> because you don't need as many pitchers obviously <hes> with the days off. I i so to me the interesting thing. Is this like i don't. You're definitely taking encarnacion so put him. They're like no no no. It's not dumb. I mean that's the that's the situation of the rossler. It's very reasonable. <hes> i think that you if you if you were taking mabon then i think you would take forward because you take the lefty bath. You know with the righty. If you're taking talk men do i'm just realizing that we have listed here. <hes> see i was gonna say. I feel like there's ask for choice so i don't know what's going on with him so let's fully healthy so l. Let let let's assume that he's back right. That's that's twelve o'clock and then you basically have a decision for one spot between talk maiden and ford award when they're going to come down. I think talk maybe if his health so at least not you take them. Both the interesting thing is like ford you really. I mean his at bats. You totally early trust. He's a perfect pinch hitter against righty as you see exactly to. You know who were the right eas you. He would pinch hit for you know i mean there's not necessarily early a lot of them so maybe his application is limited enough that you wouldn't use them but if you had a side arming righty coming into phase voight wait could you would you potentially pinch it with ford. I don't know maybe you know like but i think talk men i think would make make it because of the defense. I think like that does give us outfielders though it does <hes> so one of well known edwin d h ing but i think you're gonna take five okay. The interesting thing is going to be even how you stack the lineup each day. If everybody's healthy these are great problems that have you know and also i think this team really pulls for each other and of course whoever's not playing in a playoff game is going to be upset they should but i do believe that they also like they get how much talent they have and they trust each guy. So if your i mean brett gardner deserves to play in the playoffs you know but he probably. I don't know you know it depends it. Fixes back or you know or accent and judge your back. I mean that's your outfield right. I high <music> so i think so but like you know but but like unless you want giancarlo t._h._e. Left but then you have edwin off the but i think you want void teaching when you went d._j. At first so you go geo third clobbered second would be what's crazy about this so we'll see like if everybody's what he's healthy right like some every time. We thought we were going to have to deal with yeah. Yeah knock on wood godwilling. Everybody's health shaft to deal with this and then i think it depends because there's also want that good defense right. So is there a scenario where you play or shelhah didi tores d._j. Sanchez catching gardner in left hicks center judging right and then you're the aging boy or anchor nacion having two of them off the bench or are you saying like if it was a right handed pitcher or something you know and you and you felt like you want gardner in there <hes> or are you saying no like you know stanton's batons going to be in laughed or or geos on a bench d._j.'s at third and voice at first or encarnacion at first or the other ones the aging like there's there's basically five guys you gotta fit into three spots if everybody's healthy right like because all of a sudden you're looking at assuming hickson senator-judges interesting right torres is at second d._v._d.'s at short sanchez is behind the plate right now you're looking at voight and cornell saone or shelhah stanton stanton and gardner and trying to find a way to get those five guys into three spots like or maybe they they could be four spots spots d. h. Maybe no. I think three three third d. h. Left and i actually oh no. I yeah <hes> yeah yeah. There's going to be there somewhere yeah. D._j.'s either at first right exactly yeah so it is it's d. h. D. h. third left so for three spots and so then do you make matchup chop related right i don't have to do you know what it comes down you know and then you know and it's tough because like you know champagne problem yeah. That's exactly what it is like. You know it's probably the guys who you would you know who probably wouldn't have been expecting to definitely play or gardner in her shallow but they definitely give you your best defensive team or shells also raked and you're gonna sit a guy sitting three thirty bumper yeah exactly it happens to all of us. I can't wait wait to see what happens in my career. After a year on the world series that's true that's true. He's not here but yeah man. I i mean i think it's interesting to see right like who and also i don't know maybe is there any chance you take fourteen position players and just take eleven pitchers so the eleven pitchers have here the locks and honestly looking at it could work so tanaka paxton domingo canley chapman in britain green off no sevi- i have montgomery here and batanes so you don't think montgomery sir i don't think and c c takes montgomery spot and that's the way to put him as a lock and then the guys were maybes nestor c._c. happens. I don't think the roster yeah it'd be tough. Well don't see. I would not feel because you're gonna write this point. You're gonna look and say you know and i was happy for me. Pitched obviously really well the other day <hes> but you're so i mean if if he has like scorching high right now right now right now no right now. I also think it depends like for your longmen. You know out of the pen like do you trust you know more than one of the starters converted there because he's done a great job. You know like you you. Might you know like rather go. We're big michael before tearing it up in the minors. Maybe if we see him and he gets hot. Maybe i think you would have you. You would have this for sure you have you have paxton severino tanaka and her mom those four for sure then you have potanin assuming health right cain -ly britain the chapman out of vino and green and green green. Those ten are definite then you depends if you're taking eleven or twelve i think if everyone's healthy i think cici would be one of the other guys and then i think you're looking at either sesa or montgomery look that nestor maybe nestor but i think if you believe that can take the role nesters mariah throughout the regular susan you give him to see talking in march thinking about nestor a playoff roster crazy. I mean he's he's done a great job. Forget the array like he's had a couple of blocks. He has been a huge factor in several win. You guys know that watching every way he pitches the zero. His creativity is literally literally something to watch. It's fun man. It's fun must hate that the other interesting part of this though is there any chance that you would take if you're taking extra position the player you're taking a weighed just for thought about defense and base running purpose is to its theater yet and for example now all of a sudden. Let's say you are starting cornell. I right like you know you could end up in a scenario where you have way. I mean i guess not really data made probably have been oh maybe would be made. The spearman actually could be a pinch runner case. That's true that's true. It's these are good problems that i'm i'm very curious nice to see how they do it and who they start you know based on based on is going to be based on matchup like you know and 'cause someone one from you know. There's a chance that someone from stanton encarnacion void is sitting an off game in lesser. Shelling gardener aren't are definitely not playing. One of those was three could be on the bench. So are you know that's not an easy conversation but unfortunately or fortunately that's the position in the top. Three in the order should stay the same with the guy right now with not j. judge glacier. Would you keep that. I if it was me i would have d._j. Judge glacier gary and those four lefty righty no matter what you know. That's how that's how i would i would set it. I understand the value. Though of like i dis big game guy as we know has struggled. Oh pretty good lately. He has the homerun yesterday so maybe he gets going. He's also like every time he's about to get hot. He's had like a weird injury. You know like he was starting to take off and then he he did that thing with this wrist then all of a sudden in l._a. It's a grand slam and then he gets drilled in the back. You know like so but i you know like he's had so somebody big hits and big moments to them. I don't mind him hitting third especially as it breaks things up for a potential tough righty reliever late in a game where where they have to think about it a little bit more so i don't mind that but to me if i was lining things up i think i would just put those for those those of your four best guys. Is you big boys. Those are your most consistent heaters. Your most consistent batch just boom ride with those four figure out the rest. Maybe d v because you know it's like a few of those guys is couples. Guys are probably going to be on guys on for deedee and he's a lefty right in the middle at five high context. I mean think about a lineup where you have. You know you go d._j. Judge judge gleyber sanchez didi stanton anchor nacional voight hicks. I mean wayne wayne hangs or eight nine. Yes or you end up with you know. Let's say let's say luke sitting and it's shelhah and gardner or shell in hicks because you know i mean there is yeah. I think i would have bricks whatsoever. No i think i would have hicks or gardener <hes> nine. I think yeah you know good if they're both not in you know <hes> and then i think you know if they're both in the lineup probably one of them one of them seven and and the other one nine berlin or call you really good but you know what you wanna face a fucker lineup like four times good luck ir.

You don't go back. I think that's part of my point two with putting those four guys. I like you want in the first inning pressure him looking whoever it is cole berlin whoever looking at and saying i gotta deal with lemay you judge torres sanchez sanchez right now. You know like probably four times in this game. Four exactly with a of the teams are going to play nailed. Yes as raised twins. Indians rank them in in terms of who you want to play. I honestly there's no one i saw. This is me being superstitious. I don't ever say like i want okay the same because i think most afraid yeah. I would say the teams that i think <hes> we want nothing to do with oakland. Also horace the only thing yeah it's it's about a plane games there because you know we did see what the acts can do to the bullpen in those two home wins. You know what i mean so those guys repeatable for sure so you know you feel good about. I always feel good about like yankee stadium at bats from our liner against opposing bullpens yeah it's part of the reason i want home field. I just think think those last three outs to get a really stadium. Whole field is i know like obviously like we're not going to be. The divisions playoffs obviously but homefield is a big fucking deal. I think it is and i think the guys think it is especially with houston twenty seventeen. We beat them three times world so yes exactly and i can tell you that clubhouse. They have a healthy respect for the astros. You know they i mean obviously they should but they do and and i think that home fields a big deal and i think they're going to go forward. That's not to say they can't win if they don't get it. Of course they can but i think it is a big deal and i think they l. You know look. They've been disciplined with the arrest structure this entire really well. Yes aaron boone has done an amazing job of that. I was having a conversation with zach brennan out amount of have you know the other day where they're both saying you know i can't remember ever getting this many mental and physical days off throughout the course of season and feeling this good at the end of a season the teams in contention like they both feel great you know and that's a testament to fill the only team do and i know they've done an amazing job and giving days off like people always three gallon when guys get days off that how that is how yeah that's how and look the medium slants negative right so you know so. The actual content has to be taken with a grain of salt but like view. That's how you stay healthy throughout or do your best to not to say. They have this year but like thank you. That's that's you're giving yourself your best chance to be at your best when you are in there anyway. <hes> i think i think cleveland. If ramirez's back is the team that i get for this point. Yeah i know so. Let's let's say he's not out. I don't want that crowds is dangerous said they're the team i was gonna say. I actually fear the most because the starting pitching the crowd the playoff experience the manager and a couple of dynamite offense player who are who are just a bear to get out. You know the ramirez back if he's not a put oakland up there yeah those are one to minnesota. I don't think it's the same minnesota we're used to because they can just hit. I mean lina as we saw in that series. I mean that seriously tori was something like i've never seen that. It was renovated yeah. Well it really was. I'll put them third in the race fourth. I think the razor zor dangerous like if you told me to raise we're gonna win a series it wouldn't shock me but been less of a house a whores this year though down in tampa and you're gonna have so many yankee fans there for the kalaniiki on a bunch of yeah and at times where they were still the rays were playing great baseball yankees would take two out of three three four or yes also going to be back you know and what what capacity lee back glasnost the same type of thing so i think like i think all the american league teams are really be good cakewalk no and that's why even like if you told me one of them was gonna knock off. The astros wouldn't be so. We need to fill advantage like it'd be nice but there's also a chance that the yankees he's maybe. They don't get home field advantage but they win l._d._s. and the astros don't have home field. Yes exactly that's why you know. It's nothing you know. Nothing we know the baseball playoffs playoffs too especially short series. Nothing's guarantee you know turn their head and second. I think that's how i'd stack them up. Minnesota's arms don't scare me as much as <hes> cleveland's you know or even tamas but their offense i think is the best of those four teams by four <hes> and i think they have guys who were just like so dangerous so i think that's how i rank but <hes> manager's making me so excited for october it's you. You've been so graceful. Thanks for your time. Let's just run through a few years to get you out of here. Real quick one is from a big fan of a barstool the twitter everything camera. Maybe even ask for your spot on our two seeds you. I came back from italy early after that but i but he did a great job. He did an amazing job so i <hes> i actually personnel. He's got an amazing personality. He smart he's experienced in the game respected in the clubhouse. <hes> <hes> i <hes> toll cameron <hes> a couple of weeks ago i was like let me tell you some dude. If you wanna be a game analyst when you're done like you would be phenomenal nominal color commentator phenomenal. I think you could be a host. I think you can do a variety of things so <hes> yes. I was afraid other than the fact that i was happy for for cameron can i do. He do a great job. <hes> yeah i i was thinking i could get wally pipped by cameras ashore. I'm trying to think c. c. to see you to see to the fourth. Give cameron c could could work co work. That would be something if everyone thought you were going to wipe k. but then it meanwhile just camera may taste incredible. John men drano asked pick any yankee to be a wingman at the bar who is it. You can't pick c._c. Okay yeah. I cannot pick c._c. <hes> he's he's done done with that. <hes> i i would say <hes> so if i want to have just the best time tommy kane tommy lee is a maniac and the best way possible bar scene though i mean i think he's a maniac wherever he goes but like do you want that as you. Whoa no as a wingman. You may need someone who's like a little bit like swabbing yeah a little bit you know. What can we come back. I'd like nineteen shots. Ah for sure definitely he will. He's he's. He is hilarious. You know what actually i think i might choose enrollment. Okay yeah role mine. The news was coming off a suave romance. Romance got like some swagger. Yeah yeah some stuff about him. You know like where you like your story. Yeah like dude like if like up bruce he was your pilot. You'd be like he's gonna get us. They're like he's going to figure it out like. I think he might be the guy who i'm like if i needed a wing man. I'm like yeah role mind. He's a do when when the new york post wrote the article on our shirts and it's delivering it there was a quote from roman. I know the last guy. I thought it'd be like i can't wait to wear those shirts. Oh yeah dude he is. He's awesome man. He's other guy we need on the show. He's a he's. He's a great guy. He's that was one of my favorite archer. See twos also because he's just like he's incredibly intelligent. He's been this organization forever. He's so well respected every every time that he plays for an extended period of time he does step up and it seems like produces more than anyone expects but he's just like he's a man you know like he's. He's a dude is like if you're in a fight you want that guy. You know you saw the way he took miguel cabrera down. You know i mean like some yeah. He's roman roman u._b. He'd be my guy my wing man. We came up with this one but i think every yankee fan is do you ever think thank the lord that you're the yankees guy. Not the mets guy just especially after last night. I mean that was mentioned it what happened last night. They have well. The mets won ten the four. Oh i thought i saw oh seven in the night the next oh you know what i was actually i felt from my boy joe panic over there now and you know i was like i want him to <hes> i want. I want him to keep getting bigger bat so man. I'll ask that was just like but it's not just the mets man. I think about that for many sample any team. You know pe- people ask me like oh you know. Would you wanna go be the number one guy you know in a different from market here there. Whatever and i'm like man i would rather do you know i mean obviously circumstances can change. There are some procedures franchises like if you told me like like thirty yankee games is worth a full season almost anywhere else in baseball you know and so like yeah. I'm super programmable that i get to do the yankees because can you can. You imagine doing like baseball for a team that loses one hundred games a year like going to the ball. They like going to the ballpark going to the ballpark every day and like what are we talking about today. You know because it's like i've called bad basketball teams. You know we've had some losing being nets teams and and even before like so when they lost the first two years of the sean marks era and kenny atkinson it wasn't bad because as we could tell they knew what they were doing and there was a clear path you know so there was still things to talk about before that we had a couple of losing years where felt bleak before sean came in and and it was still difficult but the action sort of sustains itself so like when you're calling the game you still get lost in the action that is not the case in baseball all right. No you're actually calling about ten to twelve minutes of play by play throughout the course of a game. It's conversation you know and if your team just is hot garbage you know l. and it's this long marathon season. The always come up with stories like you know you find the one guy who's who's playing well. Whatever but oh that'd be brutal so yes. I am so grateful awful. I get to call games that not only the team that i rooted for growing up <hes> like a crazy man but also you know the team that wins every single yes oh you did mention the nets wroclaw versus thinking short porch bump also we helped the nets out and you got katie so thank you for that yes yes. Oh my gosh. I can't way man i i do that. I i'm so excited to watch these guys and i'm so excited to just see how this thing keeps growing own. I can't wait for that fucking pretty. Good franchises tied yourself too yeah yeah yeah. You know what it's worked out pretty and i love. It's cool to like not just saying 'cause amount of mike like both organizations treat us unbelievably well so it's it's. It's an amazing culture like it's a great place to work. I i know people who have worked for other organizations and they'll get emails. Like why did you say this word. Why did you use this verb like well. You know it's not your job to give an opinion. I'm like oh my gosh like i can't imagine being micromanaged by team management after every broadcast like that. I'm so grateful that you know the yankees and nets nets the way they handle us. They trust us. They trust our bosses they are they're amazing other guys in the baseball crew that carry over to the nascar or or is it different people yeah no <hes> so <hes> troy benjamin <hes> who's our backup <hes> for yankees producing is also our backup for nets <hes> so so he'll do some of both games he's fantastic. That's the thing about our depth to like. Bill bowlen troy benjamin and frank de grace who do are <hes> nets and yankees donkeys they producer netting yankees broadcast day all are like they could be number one network producers. They're all that good like they really are so frank <hes> depth you know so like <hes> frank does some yankees. He does a couple of series and then he's our number one. That scott is <hes> and then i think i'm the only one who crosses over otherwise some guys will fill in like our guys ryan rutherford who does tape for a day for nets. He'll do occasionally for yankees. <hes> ian riley graphics for natural do occasionally for yankees but for the most part <hes> you know i'm the one crosses over most between the two teams to more <hes>. We'll it gets you out of your max. Harvey steinberg has any celeb- ever made you nervous <hes> in terms of interviewing or player you know even the podcast whatever but or anyone you ever met yeah yeah i may i mean like mamie nervous for shore <hes> like even meeting like <hes>. I was telling you about that. Dump of an old radio system used to have a ten fifty. There was <hes> <hes> there was a music state. I don't remember the music. It was a country station that just stories that took over one of the other like three stations. I was there and janet kramer came in. I don't know if you know her. She's a country music artists and then access and i she i'm a diehard one tree hill fan guys okay okay <hes> best friend corey obsessed with what's real and you know what cory gets uh-huh so yeah. He's a smart man and janna was on that show and so like i remember all of a sudden a herpes janet cramer zinger. I'm like why i telling what she knew so like meeting her so nervous like so so because i was like a celebrity crush type deal to <hes> that was when i was like. I don't know maybe twenty two oh but i mean i used to. I used to get nervous when i talked to derrick jeeter guy and even like andy when i've had headed when i was talking to a guy both those guys like grown up. You know i'm thirty two grown up a dire yankee fan. Those are my guys right so <hes> i would get a little nervous talking with dan even like jeeter and i have a you know good relationship with eric. He was always super polite to me <hes> but you know i still always would feel like a little butterflies talking to him. <hes> fuck yeah exactly there's. There's that element <hes> andy now. I feel like even closer to because i've gotten to see him now over the years unlike so now it's like adapt them up and i'm like this is cool like actually feel like a nice rapport with andy. You know it was really nice yeah. We're he's. He's super friendly to me but i'll just tell you one on story about a a bad celebrity so <hes> i go my one of my friends. <hes> family friends mike tolan. Who's an outstanding sports producer. He's sound a lot of different. <hes> mandalay sports is company. He does a lot of production for different sports things that you've seen throughout throughout the years <hes> like he did radio radio <hes> if you remember that movie with cuba gooding junior's so <hes> the one where darius miles steals the s._a._t. Thing i think like there was any way and he was he was was one of the country hill all that shows okay. He had a film him and gary cohen not the mets announcer with director hat. I think i think gary was involved in it. Too had a film in <hes>. Maybe it was just there but anyway <hes> data film at tribeca film festival and liev schreiber was the main gene actor in it and i love his voice his voice believable hard not he's the hard knocks background all yeah exactly and like i don't. I don't ever really try and like bother celebrities if i had a lot of cool interactions but you know you want him to be like organic yeah just like like somebody introducing like yo. Do you know my you know like you know you know like steven a. introducing me to denzel. You know like that's awesome but there's it's like an organic thing. It's like oh. This is my co host ryan route. Whatever you know like but anyway so i see leaving my boy deep. It's like you gotta go up to him and i was like we're right at the after party and hours like now man. I'm just gonna let he's like no dude. You always talk about this dude's voice you broadcasts where you have to. You have to say to him so i'm like it's so crowded and i'm like trying to go up to him like i'm like i'm like going around like trying to navigate people and i see him like he's like taken shot with like a bunch of different people and it's like i. I don't know if it's like you know i. I don't know if they're i don't know what is romantic status. I don't know if there are people have interest in that regard if they're crew members. Are i have no idea i just know i'm interrupting something okay and i just have him on the shoulder and i'm like hey man you now <hes> like a a broadcast and <hes> and i i just gotta tell you man you got golden pipe man you got you got golden pipes uh-huh and he and he turns to me just goes doesn't say a word just gives me. This didn't say a single word not not thank thank you. Thanks not all right man have a good night. Nothing just like no shit. I just gives me a look like get outta here. You weirdo and turns around around takes a shot and walks away. I was just like okay. My boy deep saw the whole thing unfold and he was just like all bro. That was hall randy so i was just like ooh never again. Never again your head. It's like all this is going to be great. I'm gonna tell him broadcast but in his head it's like i get everybody that tells me i know exactly whereas me i will take as many people telling me that as possible. If you want to tell me my voice or you loved my work. Please tell me i love go like every tweet exactly i know yeah. Oh no i definitely do. I if somebody says i'm mike nice like i'll be like yeah. Thanks you know i think that was her first interaction ever something really nice about you on twitter. You liked it. You follow me as great here. We go. I don't i don't ever check twitter <hes> during a game but as soon as the game's over check nasi what people say you know and so it's like because i think maybe i told you guys a story but like i stopped checking during during the game because like sometimes people can just say weird shit that gets in your oh yes. It's not even it's not like. Maybe if someone's like you know you suck that. It doesn't really have an effect on you and you know because you know you don't but if somebody says something oddly specific like you know miss this blah blah blah yeah exactly like why do you keep pronouncing your ours like data. What do you mean ours now like all of a sudden. I don't want to say any word with an are you know and it's just like that gets in your head head. You know like i had someone recently criticised like why do you use all these different verbs like and they were like be professional and control much should have been but and i was just like now that's the kind of thing that like during a game might have like you know if firearm during a game like bothered me afterwards i laugh at it and i'm like why don't we use different verbs because like i want to describe things in different ways instead of just saying base it right field. I wanna wanna like i wanna say. Smash scorch raked roped. Whatever like just you get a different descriptive baron school for you. Got it but you know tom so you know that's you. You know that's what i try and do. That's actually one of the things i pride myself on having different descriptive verbs but yemen so and you guys in the past like ronald therese that's coming up and you're like oh my god. I'd always say honestly band like you just never know it. It happened because alan. I writer and i were doing a game in anaheim and during the game we both got these tweets at us. Were someone who said something like oddly specific like. I had someone say like. Why are you screaming at me or something and the other person told al you're talking too much and all of a sudden. I went to a you know to a board with r._t._p. And i'll stop talking and then we were like never again are we doing this like three years really never looking at this during the game because we could just get your head in the wrong lane in your producers will tell you you'll get a text from someone you need to. If you really have to change so yeah last one shane arnold does d._d. Get resigned what happens diaz season and i think he does ultimately you know i mean he's a key piece in the room. <hes> i mean we know labor can play short so that definitely complicates things a little bit but it's not like the yankees have a wealth of left hand bats well. <hes> and i think you know you could probably sign him to something. That's you know a good deal jio for him but doesn't kill you. It keeps this core intact. He's a big personality piece for that room a big voice in that room and he's a he's a really good two way player <hes> so i think something gets done all ultimately yes <hes> but <hes> you know. I don't think it's like a hundred percent lock. You know but but i would say if more like yeah i would say more likely than not. I think they'll get some good good here. 'cause that's. That's the heart and soul of team. We need to get back here for sure run. You've been so graced your time. Thank you so much for coming on. I feel like we've been doing this for two hours. Yes hey basically. I think we sort of have well. You know what honestly it's fun man. I have no no no. It's good man. I have a today was a was a chilling day. So <hes> and i have like a week golf without my next thing is w._n._b._a. Playoffs next wednesday so nice in italy italy's hit the reset button and it was great because i will say i gotta shout out my fiancee. They andrea. She was amazing this summer like we we had three or four different like weekend. Trips rips events whatever get cancelled because of the increase yankees assignments and things you know equipments a call yankee yeah exactly missiles but like it's taken away different west she she right away was like yo.

These these baseball tonight scoreboard. BUSTER only. This is the baseball tonight scoreboard for Thursday, September twentieth two thousand eighteen coming up. The Yankees spoil the Red Sox celebration. Again, Jason kipness reaches a big milestone in a big way and the dodgers continue to dominate the rodeo. Let's get to it. The first page. In Los Angeles, Wednesday night, the Rockies desperately trying to salvage the final game of their series against the Los Angeles Dodgers in early on in Desmond, gave them the lead in a fastball bullet right back up to middle through by Ian, Desmond LeMay. You scores around third racing home, DIVY across home. Plate is doll, stopping at second is par and a clutch two out. Two run single in Ian, Desmond gets the Rockies on the board here in the first that must have felt good for the Rockies now moment by the way Roxy Bernstein with that call on ESPN radio, but they were facing the guy's been the dodgers best pitcher here over the last six weeks in Walker bueller. So the Rockies take a two old lead in the bottom of the second inning. The dodgers cut into that hat drills, one, deep field way back, not even watch. Way up the bleachers and gone. Homerun. What are you for camp of the divers are on the board. It's two one rocky a comeback season for Matt camp. The dodgers were tied the score in the bottom of the fifth dosier line to two leftover toward left center on the move. As part gets by all the way to law. Picking up on the warning track is a left fielder par around. Third here comes Hernandez. He realized for designate. Most played Hernandez diets, hope weight. And does your steps out at it with an RBI double the tie the game nice moment for Brian dosier who it seemed like last weekend with someone who's gonna lose playing time for the dodgers as a season along because he'd been really struggling valve Walker bueller after that first, any trouble he settled in the one to McNabb. Struck out ninety eight from bueller. Well, strikeouts for water bueller. My friend Peter gammons tweeted out in a critical forty day stretch Walker bueller made six starts versus the Rockies coordinators Diamondbacks for a post-season spot in that time. Forty and a third innings twenty hits five or runs twelve walks in fifty two strikeouts a one point. One, two ERA playing against those contenders. He's been terrific. It was still tied to all bottom of the seventh inning. When Dave Roberts called on Yasser Puig to pinch hit. Swinging drive deep centerfield back. Center. AM seal. Three run Homer. Doctors lead five, two again, Roxy Bernstein on that call the end of the night after the dodgers held onto that lead in one five to two, they hold a two and a half game leads in the goat rodeo, the nationally west. Dave Roberts talked about the sweep of the Rockies is this game. The series was emblematic of our ballclub how many people had their hands in this series to help win three games Yossi l. to be able to put him in a leverage spot and to be prepared for that moment and to come through was huge. Obviously. Now you can go on and on about different guys doing different things, but Yossi ELS nationally play of the year last year and just to be understand to not get the start, but be ready when called upon. All all the credit goes to him. In please last seven games. Twelve hits in twenty three at bats with six homers in twelve RBI. We'll be talking with Keith law about, yes. Yup. League on the baseball tonight podcast. In about a really interesting question, the dodgers have about whether to tender him a contract in this off season, the Diamondbacks playing the cubs, the Diamondbacks trying to crawl back into contention the cubs in first place in the National League central. But early on the Diamondbacks took control. I pitch to Amos drilled a deep center field and that ball is gone. By Walker and a green bag leader on the first grade Solti Arizona's sport's ninety eight point seven FM that Diamondbacks role from there. They win nine to nothing. Robbie Ray six innings one hit an eight strikeouts. He's doing all with a one point, five, two ERA in the month of September the Diamondbacks at the end the day six games behind the dodgers in the west, a Padres in the giants into the second inning. San Diego exploded grounder right side. The White House will be around. He comes throw from pants that'll be close in hospital is in Saint Louis. Taken thirties ways Padres on the board. It's now three to one giants on Tom. Voice Banja Jabbar driving in a run. Is it the corners? Nobody out and Galvez sets what Troy left. Centerfield on the move is Anna's elegant down. Will score standard third on the RBI single. For pretty gal, that's it's a long run game answer the three to leave of the Padres getting teabag still with nobody out. In the second hand. And Largo takes the other way to rate. Hence going back to make the catch tagging. Third, come Spanish averred. He will store this game his time. Padres get three back very quickly in the bottom of the second inning. It's three, two, three, two down JABA since going position at second top of the order won't Myers coming up. His days back at all. It's going on. Two run shot for wool buyers and the Padres. It's a five, three. And for well, Myers, eleven homers this season. The Padres beat the giants in this game eight to four Donner Ciller with those calls on Fox Sports, San Diego. The Mariners and the Astros Robinson canot gave the Mariners the and the top of the first inning stretch and the pitch swing in a line drive to left field. This what is going to be off the glove of Riddick. The ball gets behind him. Hannibal scores girl. Now to third, he'll make it. They're Robbie Canoas on it first base and the Mariners have a one. Nothing lead regret seven, ten ESPN. Seattle looked. Alice Geico has been generally terrific since the middle of June, but it was a rough store form on Wednesday night. Looked at clinch the American League West, here's the stretch and the three to swinging allied sat off a title, the ball, bounces, all the way deep into right field here comes, could all onto score and the Mariners have a three, nothing lead. Robinson now attack on in the top of the fifth inning. When that east by really good margin, here's a pitch on the way swinging align shot into left center field that's down for a base hit all the way to the wall sliding stop by marina over to third Haniger being waived in the throwing cut off by solace, the relay to the plate Haniger slides and ES safe at home. And cousin, Kyle would help to finish off the Astros the pitch swing this cloud way. Highway deep is gone right field up to the second deck. Tile Seeger was some thority is twenty. Second of the season was absolutely mashed, and it's now six, nothing Mariners. Yeah, boy, the Astros home crowds are great, but they were just silenced in that moment. Tough night for Houston. They lose nine to nothing. Seven pitchers combined to five hit Houston in this game for Seattle, the Orioles, the Blue Jays somebody had to win. The Orioles did with help from DJ Stewart. That what is deed? Will it stay fair way back down the line and homerun k. batting them. Store deliver the loan ball. Onto the flag cord. And the Orioles have a one, nothing lead. Gary Thorne on mass in. Yes. They mentioned final score two to one Baltimore's eight. Nine hitters had four hits all others in this game combined for six. It's the end, the ends and the White Sox Indians of course rolling into the postseason. We talked to Jordan bastion of MLB dot com. In on Wednesdays podcast about what the Indians have to do with a checklist moving forward. Trevor Bauer will make a start for them on Friday night. They're preparing for his return to the rotation for the postseason as last night's game played out. The White Sox had a one. Nothing lead in the bottom of the night. Dinning. Jason kipness came to the plate with nine hundred and ninety nine career hits. And this is what happened here comes. Jay six guests. You know, it's funny, Josh is soon as I saw this. This happened last night. I was like, I can't wait to hear Tom able Vince call WTN eleven everything. You want it to be and more every time you can't help, but smile every time you hear, Tom Hamilton make great call like that. And it just every time it happens. It makes me more and more want the Indians to win the World Series on a walk off home run because actually see Tom's head explode and although we'd miss him, I know he'd want to do that too. Exactly. And I, I didn't look up this morning who the White Sox catcher was, but Tom's description of a no doubt or is exactly right as soon as kipness swung the White Sox catchers had dropped us. I like, oh, no. So the Indians win that game four to one Jason kipness spoke with Fox Sports. Oneal about that moment. Artem telling them out your first career hit a walk off home versus the angels. Thousand. It's a home run. How does that happen? I don't know. As Mike still work is the question. We're back. Okay. We're getting used to that. How does that happen? I don't know. There's a knack for some certain numbers with me right now. The first head hundred home run inside the park is just weird. Something happens in beginning, I started to think about what might be walk off hitting the first NFL be pretty cool for you. We keep talking about, okay, guys have clinched. How nice is they have this type of atmosphere? All zero zero game one. Nothing just to have the the temperature up a little bit. Exactly. This is a great win tip accountable. Starting pitchers who basically spent. This came about seven. Any covy was he was a step forward tonight. He was very difficult on the whole lineup, and cookie Caplis ended the whole time and. What we do, those play all ninety any we did. We let on them. So they broke mindset in that at bat, he hits Gomer. The bases are loaded first pitch up. He's throwing hard per strike against you as a change up. What's going through your mind now at seen it though? That's what I've been feeling kind of go to play a little bit. I wanna take swing on nuance had a short sling last couple of days. Saudi wanna get too big. I want to let it gets to that. Change of one is make sure balanced type of thing. Andrei. Not with that terrific interview does a great job for Fox Sports, Ohio. Jason kipness is slugging five fifty six in the month of September made adjustment at the plate injustice. The Indians have made his changes, Josh Donaldson playing third base kipness moving to the outfield. He is on fire, Carlos Carrasco reference there. Six two-thirds innings one earned run and eleven strikeouts. He's within nine of matching his career high of two hundred and twenty six strikeout said last season that courting to the note sent to us by a friend, Kyle Safi the brewers in the reds, Hazies Aggie lar- had himself a night and the pitch do, hey, sues Hagler balancer back up the middle base hip the net all troll and any RBI appeal Basit one that nothing brewers against Harvey fly off. Chevalier reunion, three run, hey, sue, secular four. Nothing to walk. Those calls on six twenty WTMJ the brewers win seven, nothing. How about you Gonzales? He's pitching well, sit joining the brewers, six innings to its northern runs last night, the pirates in the royals in Adam. Frazier, got a big hit for the pirates. The bottom of the fifth. Chessel finish over this year. Ranger out to right center gone. Frazier's home run in the parrots back guns. ATT sports nets with that. Call the pirates win to two one. Chris Archer, his first victory in more than five weeks. He threw seven innings allowed one run and struck out eight. The Phillies and the Mets retired skins is wrapping up a good season. No score of the first to pitch coming and Hoskins swings pits at high to write this. We've got a chance back is nemo at the wall, and it is gone. Clears the outta town scoreboard in res Hoskins with his thirty. Second of the year has put the Phillies up one that I think. He's got France, key sports radio ninety, four WIP Dougal Herrera pitched in the one out swinging high, fly ball, deep right field that goes to the Wally. Let's up it is good. Why carried it carried it made it over the out of town scoreboard into the seats. The two run shot, bro. Doodle run number twenty, two on the season and the Phillies dally three, nothing. They shut out the Mets Ford and nothing Zach eflin with five of those innings. The raise in the Rangers. Tommy fan got a big hit for the team that never loses one bowl, two strikes. Here's a swing drive to the left centerfield turning looking to to the wall. Good, homerun. Tommy fan with a multiple Homer game, and it's nine, three raise the eighth. Tip obey wins nine to three over the last four or five weeks or so. They've been the best team in baseball. There's still a ways away from getting close to the Oakland Athletics in the New York Yankees in the American League wildcard, chase the Braves in the cardinals Braves closing in on the National League east title and FREDDY Freeman who leaves the National League in hits tacked onto that file. In the bottom of the fourth innings stretch the pitch Freeman hits. Hard left center field back-end watching it sail into the seats center fielder baiter slept that pitch up. Took it up, fat away and Freeman with another hit in this series. That's his twenty-third Homer. He now has ninety one Rb is the Braves strike I? It's to nothing Don Sutton, six eighty. The fan of Braves, win the game seven to three FREDDY Freeman, a three hit effort. He now has a hundred eighty two on the season, the twins in the Tigers in the top of the second inning. The twins built elite that is piece to left field another to strike single snoring. Another run at student. I'll turn bowl leaving a pitch up right there. Look like a slider. Adrianna picks up an RBI his thirty seven of the year as Kepler mix to nothing lead. Dick, firmer. Burt bly living on the twins television network, Minnesota wins eight to to the athletes facing the angels. And this was a blowout one-two online in the center coming on. His trout is to take that on bounce, and that will score wholesome. Third, second, third, Scotty, Laureano -joyed Sephardi singles on a one to pitch teeth. RV I and it's five, nothing Oakland. Vince Petroleo describing the parade of runs that happened in this game on ninety five point seven. The game final score was ten to nothing. Stephen piscotty with his twenty fifth Homer of the year. He drove in five Brett Anderson got the win six and two-thirds innings, three hits and zero earned runs in Yankee Stadium on Wednesday night, the Red Sox. Again, trying to clinch the American League east, but early on, they fell behind the Yankees and the swung hit of the right field down the line is high. Hi Miguel and go. Har goes the opposite way, and it's a long fly in the right Bill seeks the do can do and get Mickey with it. He homers to write the Yankees. Take a one, nothing lead Dami galleon do, or I think is the American League rookie of the air. He's twenty fifth Homer, John sterling with that call and WFAN. And you heard that about how was to the opposite field in Yankee Stadium off David price. Just keep that in mind as we move forward. Aaron judge came to the plate in the bottom of the third inning. In this happened hit hard on the ground. Mooners legs. What run Sanchez to runs boy cut into third, judge the second. It has to be an era. It was on hotshot. He headed hard and went right through the wickets of at one Nunez to run score the Antes cre- nothing lead. Now, Josh, it's well established your Red Sox fan that was an ugly air. I thought John sterling covered up. A little bit with description of that play describing a hotshot. Yeah, not quite not quite the way I would've describe it. Yeah, it was a sloppy day all around for the Red Sox to bed. Yeah, it was ugly. David price kept on giving up balls to right field and Yankee Stadium. That's not good couple by Luke Voight on and driven right field. That ball is high. That is far. That is. His one to Beloit. Hey, homers go, right? That void is a droit and Yankees out four and nothing leads on and head of the two right vio Martinez going back on the track. He's the wall cheese. He's done it again. Look, cool hand. Luke. Boy hits one to Beloit. Two run home run and the Yankees have a six one week. There's some irony there in the description. Sterling at a look. I thought David price after this game describing what happened. He didn't complain it all because these home runs barely scraped over the right field wall. These look, both teams are playing in the in the ballpark at the same time. It's not like they have different dimensions when we come up, but he didn't really hit it to Beloit, Josh. What do you think? I wasn't a geography major BUSTER, but where's Loit? In Illinois, Illinois, we sure about that. And I know it's, I think it's Wisconsin let me. Yeah. Point, somebody's gonna look at Wisconsin, Wisconsin, Lancer final answer. Okay. Lance from Wisconsin. All right. I mean, God bless John sterling, but wouldn't it have been easier to say like Detroit or someplace that people knew about? No, I think he should've just said like the east Bronx to make the point. Right. It doesn't rhyme Voight though. BUSTER wouldn't have been new, whatever. I think that one. I mean they were literally in the first and second row. Those home runs he hit. Yeah, yeah. So they weren't. They weren't too Beloit boil, boy. What? Gosh. What not an awful game. It was a bad game for the Red Sox near judge added to that in the bottom of the six. Just not that easy tonight. As we were saying to the Seattle Mariners in two thousand three just yesterday, Myers, the ones who to judge. On line to right peel face in joy, the line mccutchen we'll go to third. As Martinez throws the second Towa to out the person. Third has judge gets a not. You know the baseball too crazy game. John sterling deputy WFAN with Susan Waldman, Aaron Hicks applied the coup gras swung online facing down the right feline grow into the right field corner. Extra-base it cuts scored judge around. Third, they're going to waive him. He's gonna. Score hit is a triple Brier, enhance. Two run triple Greg's. The game wide open the Yankees, seven, eight one lead the waste Severino in this game in an audition to pitch in the postseason. Maybe the wildcard game, seven innings one or run six strikeouts and important inning for the Red Sox. Joe Kelly, one of the candidates to fill in that seventh and eighth inning bridge gap that has developed in the Boston bullpen. A third of inning, three hits and two runs allowed a Josh. I thought there was something relevant about that. The Red Sox American League east championship banner, which you can understand why the Red Sox were prepare this because they have a huge leave the American League east. It was accidentally discovered because apparently it dropped off a vendor's delivery truck. Right. And you actually had some friends find it when they were out for coffee and Somerville, Massachusetts. I don't know. There's something prophetic about that. What do you think there definitely is. And if you haven't seen these two gentlemen who found the banner. You can find them all over the internet. They are classic Boston. You'd think that it was a scene out of goodwill hunting or something. You gotta go check it out. But yeah, no, I would say there's some prophetic about it. I don't really enjoy the fact that the Red Sox are preparing to to hang on American League east championship banner in the first place. I think that's something that losers do. I hate it, but that's what should happen to the banner in the first place. Nice. Well, we'll talk more about that with Keith law on the baseball tonight podcast today.

Episode 81: With John Sterling, The Voice Of The New York Yankees

"The. Our tied at five to go. The body of these Aaron Boone the leader his first of the game. He's. Just to the first. What's up? What's happening? Welcome to another dishing of the short porch presented by arsenal. Sports. I'm your host hugs alongside the other side of the laptop Tommy smokes Tomsk belly. What's going on? What's up a new new intro for us kind of through little slight herbal ner officially presented by barstool sports for the first episode. I was kinda hoping I'm usually in that intro, you'll run through about five different nicknames. Or so for me kinda kept it brief this time. But it's uh give it like, a B shoe. We start over. She was on gotta keep authentic. We wanted on the first one. Yeah. I mean, I changed up is. I really don't write. Anything dies is whatever's in my head. I just throw out there. So that's all you got today. But yes, we're Parcells ourselves worth Bach. Esperance's? Awesome. Took his eighty episodes. Right. This is number eighty this is eighty one eighty one. Okay. Yeah. So, but I mean, this was always the goal. So it's kinda cool that we. Only hit it an hour. Take the shit's in the fucking moon. We talk about the last show like we're gonna have guys willy Cologne. Come on, Frankie Borelli mardi mush. We have figured out something regular at gras because we gotta use his brain somehow in gambling way or something. But there's something where people wanna hear him regularly that I, you know, like five minute segment or something we'll figure if you guys have ideas for anything shoot us. You know, my time is the whatever the short porch EM's for segments, whatever. But. Yeah, I mean, if you've never listened before I recommend, you know, going back to the Clint Clint Frazier interview was great, the Michael king just did was awesome. But I mean, you know, you know, you're getting with article eighty episodes is how you really have to do it. Exactly, I'm scared to go back to our first. Like now, I'm getting don't definitely don't do. We heard I like five or ten probably like tough there. We probably all over the place a little more refined. Now. I mean, you know, what you're getting with us on a Barcelo podcast. Yeah. We're gonna talk Yankees for sure is complete Yankees podcast. But you know, we're going to be, you know, we're we're fans we're not going to break down analytics for you. And you know, we're not gonna bitch in moments. What we are going to bitch moan about a lot of things. But we don't care anybody. You know, we're just gonna we're just fans thought we hate Greg bird at slogan. Nothing's gonna change there. But yeah. So I mean, let's get into it. I guess it's first few topics here. So you're gonna get sterling a little bit. We'll going to do about fifteen twenty minutes of, you know, actually Yankee news again sterling than DMZ end the show that will be essentially how we do the Thursday episode. This'll be pretty much the same structure, but slew Severino is out for all of April. Bob, fucking nightingales. Tweet goddess got back at us. He said Luis Severino coffin hilly back in two weeks. He said that on March six couldn't be more wrong. The guy gets gets the worst information possible. I don't understand how it continues to do his job trust these people that are never right, but Severino is now out for now. All of all April ends may. I is now the new target date. It's not good sucks. I should've almost paid Bob Nightingale tweet out that Severino's out the whole season to pay him to tweet out. You know, the opposite information to actually want to happen die them. It might even worse than he might judge drew. That's true bay. I mean, it's sucks. I mean, you know, from spring training storyline standpoint mean the offense has been really good, but you know, kind of sucky storyline. So far to spring training. You lose your race for at least a month of the season. I've feeling it seems like it's going to be more. Aaron Hicks will get to hurt to you got the Dell Matanzas which will talk. About. I mean, you know, a few things you don't really want to be dealing with especially two of the bigger injuries. They have Severino at Hicks or two guys that they just extended during the off season, which really more more extensions. Please yet. No more sensitive seems to be the curse of the extension. But no, I mean, they'll they'll just have to fight through for a month or so without Severino. He's gonna come back and full form, and you know, be sevi- for the final five months season. That's fine. Maybe it's almost better that you're gonna limit his innings and Dell outfielder string lob you're saying into skies kinda maybe like because he whether down towards the end now, exactly. But I don't know it could be a blessing guys. But it's tough to look at a shoulder injury. And be like, oh, yeah. Hell, yeah. Like, you know, this is going to be great for the end or back right now. We're worried about it could it end up being a bussing in the skies. Yes. But right now, I'm worried about it. Because I, you know, the rotation was a bit of a question more coming into the air to begin with because you do have so many qu. Questions. You would see going with his heart PAKs has his injury history. Tanaka is ticking time bomb to a degree. So thirty have one injuries. Not great. Where would you say? You're confident Lee kinda set it. But do you think he's back in may? Or do you think it's worse eating it's June. I don't think he's back may I think it'd be back. I would say close in June. I may I of how to guess, okay. Didn't news is. I mean, it's still the Yankees. You know, it's kind of a next man up attitude for now looks like in hold down the rotation the they can get through April. I'm not I have no concerns about that the schedule pretty soft aside from three in Houston and Boston coming here for two. I think they opened with hosting Baltimore than Detroit. And then and then at Baltimore. So I mean like they should look it off to a fine start. They should have no problems. If the Orioles play the keys like they did last year could be tough. I would go with the strategy this year beating the Orioles. I think it'd be good to go moving forward. We would we would win more games this year. We did that. So oh, another thing is David Chow guy. So he usually does a Twitter Dr essentially don't know how much can trust them. He admittedly said I mean, I only know what people tweet at me about the situation. But he said, obviously, this is not great news. Seems like may I is. In the next check in date, not return target. At least there's no announcement of surgery. I mean, this is terrible. We'd all around. I saw that on Saturday. Wasn't great kind of. Doc. In terms of people replace every now term seems like right now, they're trying to do it internally to make our him on Johnny was Anya and inane that's popped up. How kind of a guy who's victimized this over the years, but he seems to figure things out Lewis Sessa, and I know wanted I want to reach through the screen slap you in the face because you have in our intro notes. Just notes for the show you have Sesa real deal question more, and then his numbers. No, no. He's not the real do. How many times Rena play this game with Lisa? How many times we're gonna let ourselves get sucked into have our hearts broken with a three and a third, you know, four hits five run start. Guys. Get one running thirteen innings spring thirteen strikeouts. One walk all numbers retraining hero. His big problem was control a figure that out for now. They're gonna untethering he's in the rotation on opening day. He's going to be your your fourth or fifth starter. Which is horrify. But I don't disagree. You have to give them one more shot. I just every guy we talked to down spring told us how says just the man and funny and everyone in every and everyone's confident him, I don't know. It's. The fact that they are looking internally, they're not pursuing anyone like Kyko. They don't they're considering kaikal. What says like GIO Gonzalez? Maybe right. So Heyman said, and this is Hanes take with a grain of salt. But he said that he offered a GO. It's really not close not great deal optimism at the moment. But there's reasonably both sides might wanna come together soon enough. And I don't know smitty came up to me on Friday. It was like he would shitting green is again, we got GIO Gonzalez, obviously was wrong currently and he still region whenever restricting comes up with a source. It's just this source. Wherever has the Phillies has never been right. It's he said Machado was done handshake agreement in napn, he said a single GO. Now, it's only been a few days, and they very well could still be talking but hasn't happened. He said, I mean, I don't remember him being saying the source about Harper, so funny. Yeah. Replay or except the ones actually get. Yeah. This many Phillies source. I don't I don't I don't trust them. But I do bring small face whenever he walks over. Because I know it's just not gonna happen. Whatever he says. Would want yoga dollars though. Yeah. Yeah. I think we've talked about this. How he's he's a crafty lefty, he's younger than people like think think he's only thirty one nerdy three. All right. So what's that's still younger than I thought? He was don't use thirty thirty six. He's never been hurting his career. That's very interesting point is never been her. I like that. I would have not have expected that. Yeah. He's a guy who just can come in eat innings give you five or six innings of two to three run ball. Hopefully in the stopgap veteran presence a own if you were to go to Jimmy from onto spring too. So like, I wouldn't you'll only got set lasagna hasn't been stellar. But you know, the stuff it was on brings he can he can do the job. So for now making get past April. They can't they'll be if it has to go into may and June. Then I get worried, but for now, everyone just relax if it's it's just April, and and he can come back in may at some point in may. That's great off the for the surgery word. Great. So this remaining con here where you know for people in the show, we overreact everything so trying to change that a little bit. I'm going to stay up. So say the good the good thing. And the bad thing is the good thing is the Incas have a loaded bullpen. So I don't think they're going to go with any opener games where it's a full bullpen game. But you know of Sessa does get knocked out in the third or fourth inning. We can rely on the bullpen to shut down for six seven innings. If necessary the downside to that is I don't wanna be taxing the bullpen with ill ton of innings in April. Yeah, I don't have that don't need to that. That's how you lose a great Bolton fairly really quickly. Moving on Aaron Hicks. Another bad news will it's it's more optimistic though. He's missing he will not be on the opening day roster. They'll be on the isle I'm not calling. That's the deal. Will we will only? Call the deal. Yeah. We are deal podcast wanna be make very clear, but it's you know, tissue his back, which is not a spot. I wanna be you know, fucking with. That's not great to quarters on shot dot you'd be ready for days not going to be. He said he's very optimistic. He'll be there for the second series against Detroit, which is fine with this. Does mean is that bird in void or likely to make the opening day roster together 'cause you take kicks off you need kind of left the in there, and you have the open open spot. It's probably gonna be bird along with weight. But I mean, that's very temporary thing by Detroit. You know, you might be just sending Burr back down or getting out all get in setting the sun, whatever the real battle. Now will be weighed in Frazier who makes it at that spot. Probably go wait versatility. But it's up here. Yeah. I I hate back injuries for guys who are injury that that at first the guys used extended seven years. I mean, this doesn't seem to be too serious. But you know, a guy who is injury prone. I was like, well, he's a great player, really talented. No. But the downside to extending seven years is he has all his injuries. And then he immediately has an injury wanna worst part. Your body won't have not great. Not great. You don't want it lingering back in drill season. That said it does seem like they're more optimistic on him. That's ever. No. Yeah. As far as roster maneuver goes. I was at first. I mean, my first thought was this great far guy. Clint the he's going to be able to make the team. But then when he break it down a little bit further like you said that could go to Wade may be carrying bird envoy to. So I'm not sure how they end up to. I think tolerate is on this team. I think tolerate is definitely on this team. Just because of the versatility they like came. He can't play the outfield to help spell Hicks the first series while he's out. So you're confident that it's going to be bird over Frazier and just the left the thing they want an extra lefty baton. They're Hicks was the switch header just for the weekend. I don't know how many a battle get be bench player. Hopefully, avoid were white will just play. But I just from whatever whatever read today is people think it's burdened will both be on the opening day roster. I mean, they both have good spring state of hit a void. Hey, one absolute gargantuan homerun today and then burden. Oppa Otto homerun. So they both have good springs. The way I've like will transitions the burden Voight away have looked at this whole spring is that if Voight showed signs that you know, it wasn't a fluke last year. He was just the same guy, which he pretty much has been, you know, he's got ten RBI's. Now, I think now I don't really give fuck about spring stashes kind of how you look. He'd had the spring. We want him to have an my mind. It's almost a relevant or dozen situation. Because we know was gonna have a good spring. He does this. And you know, he people like all he, you know, he looks. He's invest shape was life. He looks locked in. He'll say different player to play whatever yada, yada. We know that bullshit Voight looks the same as he did in August September October. It's his job. My bird can do nothing at this point. That's just. I agree. And it seems like Voight is winning over. Aaron Boone nail. You were talking about the shirt. He was wearing the out. Kind of telltale side and Greg bird how to see that in just just how miserable that make you feel. I mean. Joe Torry doing that? Tori would like now. But yeah, that's I mean that stuff at stuffing position battle. And it's the most talked about being this spring, and you're hitting well, you're hitting over three hundred you've got a few homers. And and you're and you're just wearing the other guy shirt from his own website at the you think maybe like birth burn magic bird seeing if the first time, he'll you fucking kidding me. What if that tell off because he doesn't care? What if that's how told bird that voice on the job? I hate grad. You wanna come into my office like chat for few minutes as he's wearing the Luke Luke Voight. Louis Vitton is like. Unless you know, void actually won the first baseman job. You know, we still might carry you for the first series. But I would just be unbelievably cruel. What have you like you're starting rotation this year? It was really no shirt or on a stupid. Are you fucking stupid? This is why you're not started racing. You'd think these things when I saw that when I saw tweet that just made my day. This is so funny. I became an guy I was like on the fence now balloon guy through and through. In other bad news will the last bad news. We have a promise don't dances is law city. We he does every year restarts out throwing like eighty nine miles an hour world like what is happening here. But he is claimed it's his that's his way of building up. You know, which I also don't understand we were at the spring game. I have no idea how your and majoring pitcher throws ninety nine hundred miles an hour, and you can just throw eighty nine on our fastballs. Like, how do you take and build up nocco full if you're pitching, so many you're basically lobbing the ball over, and it's eighty nine miles an hour a house, apostle, it doesn't make you think. It's either got to be like fifty or something when you're really just no effort or you have to be at full capacity full ninety five or that is bizarre to take just that much off almost seems more difficult than just firing away. Exactly. So the bad news today down. Gary caught him for the first time today down explains down loss ity by saying he's still not where is arm. Strict needs to be lethal come back at some point though. If I go and opening day, I'll be happy. That's not exactly the bus news. I don't like the trajectory. The story is take a couple of weeks ago. What's all? Yeah. This is what he always does. He he's laughing reporters. I'll be fine. I'll be fine. Then he's like. Yeah. You know, I'll be all right with ninety five opening day aren't Boone's a little concern. Gary Sanchez like what the hell's going on? I do not like this trajectory at all. It's kinda like when you were in in school was a kid and you have a big project coming up. It's doing a month like onto into weeks fine right to die. Mum checks and hey as the project on I it's fine still not differ two weeks. You know, we got the idea head. It's great. We'll make it happen. A week goes by oh student week. I'll do three days find him. I like that school and then literally day before school day for its do. And you just have started. It seems like what we're doing Delon hair down stopping at ninety two. Gary Gary said he went out there today. Just be like what's happening? He he is he never caught him this spring so far for as he stunk. He said by the lower veal out. He's what's what's happening Boone's concerned a little bit said a little bit. But I mean, they're confident he'll get it back up. Not what I wanna hear. So that's three really bad news stories to start this podcast. Not great optimistic news. I don't know if this is optimistic news, actually, this is also been is. But you ellsbury after showed up the spring training. Wow. We didn't think it would happen. To be fair. I still haven't seen him. It's true. All I saw the picture of the back of his head be made. Brad weeded at could be. Yeah. That could be anybody. So he could have an impostor out. There could have a stunt double just you know, the way he's walking around the facilities making people only see him at a certain angle is could be really masterfully done. I know EC that Cutty said that he left the clubhouse walking gingerly. He's like when you're you know at high school, and you're like fake being sick. When you wake up in the morning because you don't want to go to school to your parents master master Jacoby, ellsbury just does not want to play baseball. He's going to be walking around the facility with a little lint PR limp. If finally showed up because you just fucking show up. It's been two years to get my money keep hiding. Yeah. So I'll be honest. There was a part of me when I saw this diet. I got little suck. Then I was like what if Kobe healthy? This must be like you and Louis Sesa. But I was thinking not Kobe's healthy. What if he has what if he they responding screws the team? That's what happens now that's fair. But there was a little glimmer in my eye or sticking. Wow. One after Kobe, contributing player this crazy to think that you're Kobe was a part of the team that was facing Astros on twenty seventeen LCS how crazy? Not to think about this last time we've seen it. I know, but it's been so long. Yeah. That's even crazier. That's the last time. We've seen him in that series. Like it was a decade ago. I'll bring you back down there, though, hope cleared up. He said Elber is not close to being an option replace Hicks. Elbert hitting a t and playing catch at short distances. He's just playing catch. I even I don't know if he's even back the writing on the ground, which is Elway versus flag round is one of the best robberies in sports right now. Yeah. Just I don't think this is Elvis. I him showing up means south any gets. He heard people like us doing segments were in the world Jacoby ellsbury where we legitimately start to believe that he was missing. And we're going through Instagram photos and his Twitter. It was very likely. It's go missing. I think he may have caught wind of that. And said art, I guess I do have to actually show up. Maybe maybe his family like they ran out of money. And like he just has to show up light save the family 'cause they're just out of money any star filed cashing checks ago. I thought he was still cashing with insurance some you're right. Alright. Yankees are the ones that save money when he's out. He no he still he still cash. Baseball's ridiculous. You've just paid whenever NFL you cut. Guilt. Get paid and baseball you need actually show up. Yes. Oh, he's supposed to speak to reporters on Monday and shows face that will be something the first question better be like a meme where you've been it's like they should quiz them to make sure it's the real Jacoby. Yes. I like that just just ask that human questions on Bob when he sees quiz in mister crabs fun at which is the real, Mr. grabs. That's what they have to do to make sure it's not some stunt double imposter. Crush. None of that. Would just talk about mystic. None of this this podcast. I will get into John sterling now to talk about a little bit. It's forty minutes. We only ask for twenty the man just kept talking. The man had a great time even communists at the end, which was wild. It's it's been tat. We we honestly talk about everything. Current state of the Yankees. We talk about his whole life in his streak of never missing games. Now, the stuff he's got funny. Joe buck story in their Wellesz. We got Welson there. So about just state of baseball. I mean, really everything we touch on everything from you know, what you you know, what you wanted to hear what I'm sure some people on it here about his thoughts. And he's off season cone after any of the big not getting any of the big guns. You know, how he comes up with calls and stuff, hopefully, everything you could want it with astronaut sterling Starling got to sure we miss some stuff. But I think we got a lot of I was walking through Grand Central yet. Grand Central on Saturday of. Heading to Brooklyn. I don't want to. But I went to Brooklyn and short porch guy stopped me, and he's short porch dot me up and as like walking away as sterling Monday, it goes out your sewn street that sick I'm going to didn't go. There Starling whatever. And. So he was looking early science. We saw someone on Stonestreet who also mentioned the short port. And and he was always the next up. I said tomorrow or Monday, we got John Starling. So imagine that was the same guy. Tell me some v. Yeah. It was very fun. My friend was like is that guy have any idea not treating talking God, sterling, whatever. But without further ado here is John sterling. All right. We're here. Now with the voice of the New York Yankees, the legend himself Johnstone, John how you doing? I'm doing great nice to see you guys beautiful day in Tampa beautiful as we continue through spring training. Yeah. So we're getting the spring training. We're few weeks, and what are your thoughts for the team as you've watched so far as we head into twenty nineteen. Well, it really has nothing to do with what they've shown in spring training. Right. I said during the winter. And I obviously we'll say it right now the aggies have such a deep team such a deep talented team that they have no excuses. They can go all the way. Now, you said to me. Well, don't you think that true ab- Austin or Houston or the dodgers or the cubs were maybe the Phillies though, right? Yes. But I think the Yankees are so deep and so talented for me, they have no excuse. I mean and also New York as you know, winning is absolutely. The only thing. So that's that's where they can go this here. What did you think of their off-season? Obviously, they improved roof surprised all didn't make a harder push for Harper Machado after hearing about it for years would've gone after is Harper left hand hitter in such a right hand hitting lineup. Imagine how great it would be. If you had judge hitting second in Harper hitting third credible Tarlo fourth. But I love what Brian Cashman. Did. You know, what you saw last year is the the dodgers and the Red Sox were able to change their lineup on a daily basis as so many different people who could play the spots. And that's kind of what would Brian did, you know, certainly filled out his pitching. Tab. He got a big starter. Paxton a re-signed hap- he signed out to vino he re-signed Zach Britton. So LeMay who do LeMay LeMay? He was well, then then bringing in the Mayhew Lewinsky, you know, with with DD out for a couple of months as I say, they have they have no excuse if too low they signed a shortstop, gut hurts Amaro, they play labor tours there and play LeMay you second. So they have a very team. It's probably the deepest team since they won the World Series in no nine probably it's been think. So. Yeah. Very very deep bulk up. Now, what could first of all, you know, we're going to see an read all these predictions. Right. Everyone has soda we Susan. I do it for is nothing. But how do you know who's going to get injured and how long the going to be out of the aggies? Who would they won one hundred games us you judgments seven weeks heckling and Sanchez, I think probably missed a month of more than. Ed. So and Stanton was averaged by his standard, right? You know? So. I think they they have the chances put it that for sure within the team. There's a big position ballot going on. Which is something we really haven't had in quite some time. It's big like a football thing. But baseball, we don't see much just with the Yankees. But Greg bird, Luke Voight at first base is no while you see it as much as because they carry so many dang pitches. These guys only pitch one inning. And it's changed so much since I was a little boy Casey's Yankees. They might have had nine pitchers or ten pitchers on a twenty five man. Number on the ball club. And so we have to do this in my head quickly. So that would leave fifteen position players. So you start eight there was no D age. Yes. Seven guys on the bench, Casey pension form in the second. Third inning. Right. And now, it's totally changed. Totally the opposite. So you only have three or four guys on the bench. The is all the American League teams who carry thirteen pitches. They wanna get have three guys on the bench. Ridiculous crazy. So I I mentioned it last night on our broadcast. I don't know when this is going on. But anyway, we had a game the other night on the air. And I mentioned how unfair it is. You know, because I think void can really hit. I don't think that it was a fluke last year. And I've been a big bird fan for longtime prototypical left hitting first baseman who thirty run. So it's too bad that undoubtedly one of them's going back. Yeah. What do you who? Do you think will will win the job at the end of the who do you think has like police right now? Well, I guess boy. Well, that's what Brian Cashman says, you know, that Voight he void head of an ominous year if they had one at all, maybe people would have recognized it. He might have. Hit one home run every ten at bats just Ruthenian and then he hit about three twenty. So that's terrible for Greg bird. But it's such a long season. There's so many injuries you you'll probably end up seeing both of them at this injuries. And all that you mentioned how deep the roster is the season. Is there a player, you know, maybe a little bit more under the radar that you think is going to end up having a very big breakout season and be a big part of the team that maybe we wouldn't expect. I don't think you can call it a breakout season. Who's Gary Sanchez has done it before? Right. Ridiculously at one eighty six and. Though, I think he could really help the Yankees by having a breakout. Re breakout b break would do it again. I don't think you could think I think Frazier will go back because they want him to get at bats. I think right. You know, we're big. Yeah. It seems like when we record this. We're we're midway in spring training. Right. But if there are no more injuries, and they're always injuries. I think Frazier would go back maybe they would keep Wade because he could play infield outfield. We just talked to him last night actually tolerate. It seems like he's right now a locked to make the team. I would think does this versatility great speed versatility. And the only going to they're going to carry thirteen pitches. You know, they are exactly do you think a year understands belt in New York will pay dividends you think we're gonna see a different Stanton this year. A rod. Yeah. Rod needed the year. Well, he's not as flexible at bat as a right, Alex is a really good hitter Stanton power hitter. And you would love him. To lay off the right hand slider going down on a way. Nice. This take it. I really think that a lot. I saw about a strike out the other day. My engineer got something for us called Roku. So we can see any games televise at any time. And I saw guy struck out outside that I wonder if he thinks self when I see that pitch coming don't swing out on strikes. But for the most part, that's that's a ball. That's low and away. Yes. I'm hoping that STAN would be even better because of a year in New York, right? How much pressure how much do strike outs bother? They're sort of two schools of thought one is well and out is an out on the other one is well, you have to put the ball in play where do you sort of land on that it up all those me very much? I knew I knew that if well I always feel first of all in. Let's take Sanchez. I saw him. Do it. So many times the second base him move over on the shortstop side. He's few steps away from second base hard ground ball gets it out or double play. If he waited a little longer the same dang ground ball to the first bayside of second. It's Basit the runner at first goes to third. So I believe the Yankees have to incorporate some of that doesn't mean they can't swing and hit home runs. But at some point you down a run in the eighth ending this guy. Second no one out and you don't score. That's your fault. All you have to put the ball play. And I'll tell you guys a story, which is why this is in my jeans, my DNA or love nineteen forty nine. The jail the Red Sox by game and oddly enough, they only had Saturday and Sunday at Yankee Stadium against the Red Sox man, even they fell behind four nothing on Saturday. They came back. They won the game. So now Sunday winner take all for the American League. And I think resute oh tripled. And Boston because of all these great hitters in back of Henrik. Tommy Henrich sitting third Damasio sitting fourth Yogi on up they play they played their their infield back and this is. For the pennant and Tommy Henrich choked up and and just directed ground ball to second other runs scored. And that was the only run scorch of the eighth inning. When everything went while the Yankees won the game. Obviously one the first their five world championships. And I I mentioned that all time of Henrik choking up giving himself up just hitting a little ground ball to to the second baseman. Nowadays, they probably would bring the infield up, you know. So. Switching gears more little bit about use witching from the Yankees how on earth. Have you never missed a game since nineteen eighty one. Well, it is. I don't understand it as we sit here. And I hope it continues. I always say it began in the very beginning of November in nineteen eighty one. Right. So now, this my thirty ninth years that amazing and credible. And and there are five years in Atlanta. When I was doing the hawks and Braves that was doing about two hundred twenty games that year, and I guess because I love the games. And thank God. I I've have good genes, I've stayed very healthy. And you know, people as well as the day when you really was sick. And you. I guess a few days. But for the most part it hasn't been a big problem. I have no idea. That's a good answer. I have no idea. But I look forward to the games. I get a kick out of the games and some how I get my body. There is a field to be. I mean, you're the true Armand you've pass Lou Garrick and Cal Ripken junior. Of course there the head of play only run my mouth. But I do think it's a big thing. And I don't think anyone in the business cares. And we do. I'll tell you the story. I get a car. Going to away games coming back and we flew into Newark. And this guy is going the back way. Which even I know. I have a terrible center direction. And I get off the the turnpike on forty six and doesn't matter. How you go back way and you wind up in cliffside park, and you go down the route five to Edgewater where I live, and we went through a a police sobriety. Check is a good term. And all these cops are all over and. Yes. Three in the morning. He I wanna go home. I called someone over. I said look I said, I'm John sterling and I'm just back from a road trip. And no one's that anything to drink. And would you let us go? And all yeah. Oh, John Wiley, and then everyone came over all the cops came over and the head of the detail said to me, John you got to keep that streak going. Six years ago seven years ago with great. That's awesome. So how did you first start doing these homerun calls, and you know, the the way you do them. How did how did you come up with it? You know, it's just the start doing it. It's your way to stand out for sure and everyone loves it. But like, how did it originate thing? I would tell you not everyone. Everyone who who smart loves it you on the year, you're going to get knocked. I don't happen to listen. I'm really good at that. I don't listen to people in. It's something that I would do with names or edge. It really just a play on words, and the I began this as far back as rock casting. The nets games in the mid late seventies in a Benard king was rookie and terrific. And he would go in for jam and ideal but arts sky, BB king, the players, call them BB after the guitar, you know, and. And I wish I I wish had a really good answer in Atlanta. I really started doing it. I did so much with Dominique it's unbelievable. You know, Dominique is money Feek, then I would change it among Necas terrific, Dominique is dominant. Anyway, I did that. And I did a thing with ran on. Randy whitman. You know, you hit a jump right? So he delivers a Wittman sample, blah, blah, Tayeb out Knox. Right. Someone actually came to me in Atlanta and said about Whitman's, so you know, it's spelled differently. Really care. It's upon anyway. So onto the Yankees and the first one I did it for was burn baby baron. Which was a rallying cry in the black power days of the late sixties by rap Brown. And you know, someone me, you know, what that means burned as it. Yes. I'm old enough. But in this case, it just means burn baby burn and Bernie goes, boom. And you know, you started hearing him come back, and it never was intended to be do, you know, that guy stopped me in the parking lot last night after the game imagine this. And he said to me, you didn't have a home run. Call for is Ahah Gilliam. You are in to look for people in the car. And I said, you know, why didn't have a home run call form why still hit it? I had never heard of. Do you think it might have just been is as gilliam's family? Weird. So it never was intended to be for everyone. And now it is. And I guess I should be happy about is like a kind of a cottage industry. All right. You know, it's it's just a nice imagine. When people knock it. People in newspapers. Silly can be it's just a play on words. It's all the world in people who hate anything. All right L is meant to be fun. And we we are there to entertain, you know, it's not ball one strike to want it anyway, so on and on and on so in Kyle holder hit a home run last night. I reached back to Lyle over bay said Kyle isn't a mild, you know. It's just fun. Yeah. Absolutely. Love it. What is the process like for coming up with one when the keys get a new player you immediately thinking? All right. What's my call gonna be gestion not in the old days? Just came to me, most of them Rami canot, don't, you know, just just happen A-Bomb from rod just happened. Excuse me. And you know, now I try to think so in a regular season game. I have one for two the whisky you wanna give it away. No respect. Oh, I think the most interest was on Stanton. Yes. Yep. I'll tell you that story. Okay. So they get Stanton. And everyone is asking me all winter, which hormone will. I can't you know until but what I did was I called up berlitz. I spoke to a wonderful gal there a town in master a gal named Linda Merlo, and I said. I said I want and short Italian phrase that rhymes, and I said, I if if you're old enough, and I guess she was. I said it's I want something like runs Oni Sono bony. Their logo for years, and you know, what a few days later, she came back. And she gave me Giancarlo Knowles, equal sto Ballo. And and when I started doing it people didn't like it. Then it grew on people. So you know, as what is the favorite you've ever. I always say I like, oh, the Grandi man can help. That's good enough impression Grandy he likes Matsui. Do you have on your most proud of? It's like, yeah. I really did a good job coming up loves that. Who loves that? Job in ignored WFAN loves through by God's. Anyway, it's not going to change the world and feed the, hungry and cure cancer. It's something, you know, kind of funny on the games Fisher. Do you think you're more known for your home run calls or your sign off with the Yankees win? A really is amazing. How that happened? You know, I'm I love the business. I told Michael Cayenne is center stage at at a very early age. I fell in love with sports and music, and I've had them as companions my whole life. Driving around if seriously Sinatra I hear all my music by different people all the time. Wow. What a joy makes driving. Great and driving New York is not great not at all. So with that in mind. What was your question? What more known for that your home run calls or your sign? Oh, I was going to say, I I've read every book and Bob Hope in his books would talk about how on his radio show in the late thirties early forties. They would throw lines away and they would hear him during the week. So they knew they had something. He's the line would be nothing. We would just throw line and on the program and people would. So when I started to hear Yankees win comeback and the home run calls. Well, then you know, you have something. So I don't know what I'm more famous for. But I think they both have done very way. Nothing. People imitate them. In the late fifties. Those a show which polarized the community Amos, and Andy and in the old days radio. It was done by couple of white guys. But now they had a black cast. And I tell you every single person in the business try to imitate, Tim more. And they couldn't do it. Of course is only one Tim more. And that's how powerful that was they'll try to do. I won't do it. Sound good? But Tim Moore was phenomenal everyone show business right to do it. Everyone all the time imitation for fun. It's for all the time and and Sammy Davis. And so I feel frankly. Very gratified that you hear the Yankee win thing or it is high as far, you know. Yeah. So you have a obviously golden set a pipe. A great voice was it like that your entire life at what age did you realize? All right. I got a voice for radio. Good question. Thank you. When I was a little boy. And I would hear all the time at parties. Now, a little boy running around, and I would hear all the time when he going to grow up to your voice. So I guess ad deep voice, then and I had a buddy and. And we were at his apartment. And we were listening to Nick game and they interviewed a player, Connie Simmons. You'd never heard of and kind of a high voice like this. And so I said to this guy's mom. I said listen to his voice him firstly sounds like a girl, and she said to me. Oh, he doesn't have a big deep sexy voice. Like you. Oh, so in your she was interested. So when your eleven or twelve thirteen blasts, a big thing I knew before then I was going on the air. Now is very lucky. I was given this voice. I didn't do anything for it. And and the the best thing I can tell you is doing all these games. Now, this thirty ninth year, I've been lost my voice sell press one day shower like this and to get off the air right now. You know, is there anything you do to prevent that from. Yes, I had a used it badly. I was doing. A hydrogen twenty nets in islander games and a three hour talk show and Morgan state football on Saturday slot award. Oh my goodness. That was just up getting from one place to the and getting back at at eight o'clock seven thirty the island or game. And. I use my voice improperly. And I raised a Najah a sound terrible. And awful. And I finally after trying everything I went to a doctor. And I said the reason I haven't gone is. They tell me if you operate. I may lose vocal quality. And the guy said, no, no. Once at thousand cases, and I went in and I had to nudge -als one on each chord any took them off. And that was in nineteen eighty and they gave me a couple of ways to use my voice, which I'll give you on the air for free. Thank. And what you have to do is either press out your your diaphragm? If you press out your diaphragm, you talk from the front of your your mouth, your front of your voice, or if you over exaggerate your lips, you do the same thing. They don't touch your chords. So for example, I was at all boy got so scared when I got ahead a week where couldn't do anything didn't talk and I've determined. Hey, this your livelihood. Why? So I've never I never reached my cords when I'm on the air. I were usually a single earpiece, which is so loud. And I cut off the noise by putting my hand over my ear may look dumb. But I can I can talk from the fund of my voice instead of my cords and one night, for example. The radio stations. I worked for as now called Entercom. They out CBS, and they had a party. And the rock noise on both. Couldn't hear yourself think. And you'd be involved in talking to all these people people wanna meet you, which is the idea of being there. And and I I would talk like this. If I talk like this now, you're not seeing it. I have my hand over my ear, and what happens is you can hear yourself. So you don't reach back and use your cords. And that was this winter, and I did that January February. And so that's what I do. I try never to use my cords. I try to speak from the front. Interesting. What was your relationship with George Steinbrenner favorite story in great story? This was on Michael's centerstage too. I I have told the story. It's amazing story. First of all, my relationship was great. I love George, and if you say, well, you know, he was very McCurry liver. Yeah. I like that though. Yeah. I liked that. Sure. He was getting killed. The Yankees were terrible when I joined eighty nine eighty nine ninety ninety one terrible team and. And it changed. George got suspended, the Howie spirit thing, and Jean Michel and Buck Showalter took over and that was the start of the Yankees. Well anyway in the interim. And eighty nine ninety ninety one they're all blended in. George was getting killed in the newspapers. And I said on the air, which he must have heard one on my soapbox. And I said keep killing Georgia and the GM about killing the players. They're the ones who are making out. They're the ones who are not pitching, right? And I went on my soapbox. So few nights later, we're in Milwaukee. And it's raining, and we send it back ABC than had the games, and they had a talk format. So they had someone ready to go on. And I'm wandering around the old Milwaukee ballpark grungy grungy old ballpark and Georgia sitting in one of the what would be sweeping. So they weren't they were. Steel girders. And he sitting there and I walked by the room, and he stops me. John. And he said, I I just wanna tell you. You'll always be the Yankee announce. And if they try to replace you, I'll veto it. And so that's pretty wonderful news from George so that was my he must have heard what I did, you know, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, Sherri. Sherri, liked hearing that everyone likes being defended. Not another person, obviously, close at Susan Waldman has been your broadcast partner since two thousand five Hugh describe what it's like working with her. And you know, what she's like as well. Here's a story. I was in Atlanta. And I helped get the general manager. WFAN which began ten fifty and then. NBC sold out. They bought much better signal and many way the GM guy named John Channon, and he had been my general manager for this talk format, which bombed nine months enterprise. It was like an offshoot of ESPN, and I helped get John the job. They called me the this group MS that that owned F A N, and I was with the hawks in Milwaukee for some game, and they call ban. I I raised over John. I got the job. And then he called me and said Pete Franklin is out with a heart attack our afternoon guy. And he said during the all star break when you come up would you would you do three or four days. And I said all I love it. Well, my update gal was Susan Waldman. So we became buddies wave of. For I ever could have dreamt that I get the Yankee job. And then I'd meet her. She was doing pre imposed on the Knicks. And and I was doing the hawks. So you know, we met a few times we were friends by the time. I got to the AKIs, and I I was on there with Michael that was a great relationship pretend years. And anyway, then there was an opening, and I, you know, did my best to get Susan the job. And then it was thought to be oh revolutionary, but it's not we work seamlessly together. We have very good chemistry report. We actually like each other were friends off the air. So is easy. You guys ever picker after spending yell so much time together like a dog day in August or you all get get an hour with two other. It's always good fact when we have a night off somewhere, we will go to dinner, you know, we'll invite Jack and Meredith, and we all have dinner out. Nice switching gears a little bit Alex Rodriguez. You know had to very roller coaster playing career especially in terms of the fans. And now he's really done the one eighty as his broadcasting career. What's your take on that? I mean, he's diversely loved now. I think you're amazing to know that it actually happened. We can't believe it Alex is gone from a pariah. Remember, he was suing the Yankees, and he was doing baseball at cetera et cetera. And now he's like everyone's buddy. And he's does anything he wants on the air. And he's now doing these planets commercials, and he's been accepted in that amazing is unbelievable. He could change the direction of his life so easily. So now he's going out with a major star. And he's got a great job. And I would imagine he as pretty good money in the Bank. Okay. Now as far as he is concerned, I've always been friends with the my boys'll. Liked him. I've always defended him, and you know, there are so many ills in the world so many things I really care about. And one thing I don't care about his ballplayers, taking whatever they take you see guys still being spendy dis for taking something, you know, my could careless. Okay. I do care about. Children getting killed in all these schools and mcdonnell's all us to that. I care about I care about ballplayers taking drugs fall tight when I mean, the steroid when Sosa McGwire bonds, you know, all those people were juicing. I mean, obviously, it does some bad stuff to your body. But I mean in terms of popularity sport never bigger back, then, you know, us absolutely true. And it's now grown to build a Lee baseball loan first of all it's different than the other sports trek. And so the difference. I mean, people are still now in eleven billion dollar business. Keep your hands of play the game has great. It'll always be great. And what what do you think the current state of baseball are you afraid at all of strike in a couple years? All the rule changes the slow moving free agency that they would be that stupid both both sides, and if they ever strike, they really deserve. You know, how people say a pox? On both their houses. Is just a question of how much money you keep you know, the ballplayers bothered by only getting an offer of two million four million a year. They have no idea about reality. None at all. And they should be ZOA raised in homes that didn't have the kind of money ninety nine percent of them. And the owners the the more they make the more they won. So I hope they resolve their problems for sure I know one thing with the last strike, we had Michael was my partner, and he wants said we did a jock show and he wants that. Said we're not getting paid. We didn't have a vote. And he's right. Yeah. So I would hope that they're not that stupid that they would be able to resolve this just greed. That's all hopefully, so I have a few more fun rapid fire questions here. I want to know what is let's say it's a Wednesday night seven o'clock game in June in New York. What is an average day like in the life of John Starling? We have a game that now I've been working late. For more than fifty years. And I was I was a late night person. Anyway, when I was a little kid, and my parents were called me the night watchman. Up late. So. I do believe this that one reason that I haven't missed a game in all these years is I get my sleep now. Yeah. I was kidding. You guys earlier that couldn't sleep last night after the game. And as I will watch the television and went now then at five in the morning, boy, then I could sleep. But I mean, I gotta do things. So a typical day would be that. I would get up eleven. I would have slept. You know long. I'm a great ability to sleep late, and you know, I'd have brunch. And I have very lucky I live in a beautiful building and Edgewater phenomenal building. And they have a down. They've Apul inside pool. So go down swim laps back up, stairs, shave and shower. Go to the ballpark, not a bad life. So I hope also after games at nothing. People don't understand the game is over at eleven or ten thirty eleven before you get out of there. And they have to drive home. We gotta get out of the stadium. Traffic you go home on I'll go to sleep. You know? Then what something and have an adult beverage in. And when I get tired, you know, it's one in the morning, so one thirty I fall asleep, and and repeat the procedure. I'm never good in the morning. Terrible morning person. Honest think you're more active person than me. Everything it's a very impressive. Three your time doing this who you think is your favorite player you've interacted with on the team. And it's a tough question. If you if it's tough the current team, but well, there's so many. But if I had say one person to be David Cone. Okay. We you know, we kidding. We call each other kindred spirits, and he's a really good guy. Very bright. And now I'm by blocked him from the start. There have been others one player who came over from the Braves to the Yankees, and I became friends with and he came to be one night after spring training. It said my family can't at over you build. Now feel to name Dion. James remember yet way back now before I get along every game that mo- pitched I Brooke has every game Geeta played. But I wasn't. Although I got along with both them great. I was like buddies with them. Like, I am let's say with with Kony what about the currency who's a guy who sticks out to you just have great relationship with well judge. You know, he's a good guy. And. His I met his parents. And his father who has hands about double by size. And and he shook my hand he said, I loved judge. So that got me right away. You know? So I like him very very much like CC very much, terrific teammate and leader. Speaking of of leaders, do you think there could be a next if there's anyone on this team? Do you think judge would be the next captain do you like his chances to be the next captain? Who should be that? There will be another one will be oh, sure. There's a lot of debate whether or not they'll just just retir- jeeter. I don't think so. I don't think so. You know, they didn't do it after Garrick and they didn't do after Munson. So, you know, time goes on their new heroes, and it should be that way. No new records new heroes new. I guess judge could be a captain back kind of thing. What kind of pet peeves? Do you have you seem like a guy who has some pet peeves? Do you have any? Operating day. The I if I have a pet peeve. I'm very giving. You all my secrets. I guess it's my defense mechanism. I ag-. No, it don't like something. I I have never listened to rap for five consecutive seconds to music. Okay. Other people can listen to it. Other people can make billions out of it. I don't mind not a young guy. But. You know? I don't listen to it. So anyway, I don't pet peeves say, well, New York, traffic, or whatever. Yeah. Double parking is killing New York. You know, an I drive in New York a lot. And do you do it? It's his top. I have to pick my my spots at try not to go below sixty fishery. That's one thing. I but anyway, as I I wish I could name a pet peeve. But what I do is. I ag- Nord. And go on my way, Tom anything else for John here. Yeah. I just have one more thing. So I get some play by play broadcasting and one of the toughest things for me. Is that I go to the bathroom a lot in between ever inning. I'd be. I'd be taken a leak or something. Are you able to told it in throughout the entire game? How how hard is that to do pretty good about that too? Yeah. I don't know why. But I at the worst can get into the seventh. The middle of the seventh inning all hell breaks loose at Yankee Stadium. They honor someone they sing something then they sing something else. And and that's why. Go to the bathroom, and you meet everybody there. And but I know I'm very very good about that one time. Urinal to urinal with Joe buck, really good guy. Great broadcast, really guy, actually. And so I can leave standing there were standing there. And they said there's always a pleasure standing urinal. You're an old witch Joe buck, and he said in the corny announcer's voice back to you. John. That's great. Yeah. Pay about things that I don't like Nigel my best to ignore them. That's a that's a good way to all. Right. That's pretty much all the questions. We have we thank you so much for coming on. And giving us part of your part of your day. I will say is there any way you can leave us with a little this is John sterling and you've been listening to the short porch. Can you live Li listeners with that short porch? Barstool sports. Okay. Short boards by bar. I wanna tell you guys something. Relatively intelligent, not very but relatively and if you people didn't know what you're talking about. I would have been not bothered by. But I think what am I doing here? I'm giving up my time. And you guys are great. You knew you know, everything you're really good. I bet your pride cast is great. Hope you make a living out of it. Are you making trying? Yeah. Yes. Anyway, guys are really good. So it was my pleasure to be on. And you've been listening to barstool sports. What what am I? Hi. This is John surly. And you're listening to the short porch by barstool sports. Okay. Oh, this is John sterling you've been listening to short porch byproduct of barstool sports. Perfect. Thank you so much. That was fantastic. I am replay that comment the minute long compliment day, my head for the rest of my life. You're probably gonna hear his whole. This is John sterling you listening to the short porch. Barstool sports. You're probably hear that every single podcast at the end. Because why not why wouldn't we do that? But yeah, that was that was fucking awesome. I remember finishing that fishing interview in Tampa. We as tell and the moment he like went upstairs picture, I did like a fucking whole fist destruct at the side in the World Series. I was so excited. It was Annette that complement was all of it. Because after we finished recording. He I think he continued. And I mean the craziest part with us again guys over at the stadium. Let me out give me a call. What that means does that mean, I don't know if he knows we can't just walk up to the press box and say, hi, I got enough. He knows tickets. Just don't go into the press box. You just gonna get us pass. I don't know. But it was I we have a new friend in Mr. Dunstall. I got a friend that I never knew I would have ever ever. Guy. What an every what a guy what a human being? He's everything you everything you would think he isn't more and the voice in person. I mean hearing the podcast is is great in itself. But here in that in person with two feet away from you is insane. What else love him magical, Larry pipes? Let's get a few dams here. I did get a DM for Matt Rinaldi? He's a short porch listener, slowly, he he Demis warnings that hubs and fighting the hostile life due to right now did a high blood pressure trying to figure out the cause whatever he said love, the Yankees tweets and the podcast helps a lot can't wait to the on. So we're mission. Wishing you a speeder covering, Matt. And hopefully, you're back to full speeds version. Yeah. Awesome. That people are listening. This could actually make their day. That's pretty cool moving on to another damn sister. Brandon la- Mando by the way for now on these are all from Instagram so follow short porch. The underscore short underscored porch on Instagram and the real really, really. But that's what we gotta do. But someone had the short for channel. Why? And they've never like Instagram before insane. Brandon says I know you guys are big on bedding. So why what are the odds? The man the myth legend the definitely not legend ellsbury plays in a regular season game before Hicks the season. I'm zero yet Hick's because. Yeah. It's zero considering the hope we were where Hoke Lewis he's not close to being an option replace x. You could put a point. Oh, one case up really bad happens to. But I don't think that's really option. We're talking Hicks minus five thousand to play over elsewhere. Yeah. Even that might be you might be off the board and could be off aboard. It could be off the board. I saw someone today. Bet on the warriors to make the playoffs. They put sixty seven thousand dollars to six hundred seventy dollars on the bet. I mean, it's a quick six hundred seventy bucks why not hassle? That's that's betting sixty you can true. I mean, you could probably put sixty seven grand in the Bank in make that off interest. If you're comfortable enough, if you're rich enough to bet sixty seven thousand dollars on a single bet then six hundred seventy dollars doesn't mean anything nothing. I don't even think about it. If you have sixty seven grand bet, and he made other Bex to for like fifty thousand dollars. Jeez. Man, next from Joey be this is an interesting one, you're out of popular bar in New York City at our highly intoxicated. You're having a great time in a bunch of your buddies point over to the other side, and who is there, but Greg bird with a group of people assuming you run into him that night. What is the first thing you would say to him? Remember your shimmy drunk while I'm going to do the thing. Ryan Boyd him at all costs. And if I leave the bar mental lead the bar was I don't think I can have a friendly conversation with him, especially being extremely drunk. I mean. Yeah, you hate your more known for hating him than I am. So I think it'd be more awkward for you. May I probably I go like Greg big fan. What's up, man? Like all the haters out there like barstool hubs on Twitter, so many haters out there. They're the worst. I got your back. Like, you're gonna fight through these injuries. I love that. Sweet lefty swing state and we need in the lineup. Go get a man, and I'd probably grab a picture. Moving on next next question from t y dinks for the short porch. You'd compare is a really good question. Like this. If you were to compare the twenty nine team to the two thousand nine team safest, a judge compares to jeeter for that team who is this team to Decky Matsui, a cold blooded killer. The Boston killer the ultimate World Series of. That is a good question. I'm thinking clutch guy. You're gonna up to have big hits consistent steady consistent. I might say. Graber in my head. He did have a bad plough. It will take it would be if he was healthy. I think the easy answer if he's healthy. I bought from Taylor though. Void is a Boston killer him. Yeah. I think I think Labor's gonna have it really Salty's glaciers kind of flown under the radar. Yeah. Definitely it's weird. Because he was I mean, you know of best prospects in baseball last season had a really good season. Got a little bit overshadowed by Andrew Harr Shohei Otani, but sill an awesome season for rookie. It's two twenty two years old. I think, you know, hidden tour towards the bottom of the order. He's going to have a really really nice season. So I'll say they come up with some big kits in a sort of like Matsui's not gonna be relied upon to hit third or fourth. I think provide some some big hits from the bottom of the lineup. My biggest concern with him is how they fuck with him with tools. Oh, and Loma Hugh and playing time wise, I you're he gets a lot of singing you've expressed that before out of your concern about that cider. I don't know how to do that. But I don't think there's no way he's only playing two out of every three days. So I think they said they met it out. I think he said he's only going to get day off. He's going to one game off a week was still sounds too much because Kleber towards these. So young. But I don't know. I guess we'll see goes. I think the guy I'm not gonna like put on eggs basket right now. But I think the Mayhew could turn into that type of high contact rate hits the high average guy he's been pretty clutch thinking time in Colorado. I think key could kinda turn into a sneaky like clutch silent killer type guy, especially silent. He silent killer in LeMay, you ago had exactly the same. So he could turn into that. But a guy who's been on the team. Yeah. I go voided glacier. Probably that spot. Yeah. Then that that is our show. We're gonna be back an our we're twice a week. So we'll be back here on Thursday. You will hear we're doing out of China right at amount of Thursday. That's an awesome interview. Great, dude. He's had a killer spring his stuff is ridiculous. So which we sat down with him poolside for about twenty five minutes. And hopefully, we have some more. We have some optimistic news about on Thursday show instead of Severino Hicks Delon Nells, very we'll probably have ellsbury up. They would be nice. But that thanks for listening. If this first time listening hope you enjoyed I think he did sterling fucking awesome. And there's more of this to come of the show is on the up and up. I promise you that. So Tommy got anything else. Twenty seven rings baby.

3/23/21 - Hour 4 - A Game Of 'Al, Eddie or Jerry???', A Call From Dan That Goes Nowhere, An Update, 49 Year-Old John Sterling Audio, MOTD And Maggie Gray

"Stugatz jon wiener. Now he loves jerry. Al and eddie love these guys like so. He did a play the game. I wanna see if you answered the same questions that i answered with those guys. He played dukes skah's area recco. All right so the first question was who is the most likely to pick up a bill at a restaurant. Dukes khazari recco. I said the same thing who is the least likely to pick up a bill at the restaurant. Dukes scott perry recco dukes. See i said eddie. I said eddie. Not as a disrespectful thing. But like eddie i feel like is a screw the man guy and like he will walk. My whole thing was like he'll just walk away from the table and destroy away and be like not my say i had a different experience with eddie eddie has been a guy that's always offered me something either for a tip or can i get involved. Can i help. Yeah and he always asked now. I don't know if that's january. I believe it's genuine. Because he says like a genuine guy. I can tell you that al is never offered not one not one time well after the first few times just like he's got it. I don't remember the first few times so long ago. What i remember is at least from what i can remember going back to like a year and a half ago because that's the last time i think i saw. Yeah yeah. I don't. I don't remember him. Handed me anything wherever saying anything to me. Either though i love that no. I got that one that one another one was one phone. Call to get out of trouble dukes. Xerri recco a to me. It's gotta be al dukes really wow see i went eddie with that one so i feel like eddie would drop anything to come and save you like. That's why i feel. Like eddie shines where i feel like our would be like. I don't need this. If if it's law enforcement or something like that. I think i i would love to get himself involved in it. That's why i think that would call somebody else. Yeah but he would get involved. But i feel like eddie would drive the length of the country to come and help you out. Okay i got it. I say it. I'm not gonna argue with you. Yeah Babysitter for your kids. When they're younger. Obviously so i'll put it this way babysitter for winnie dukes. Scott xerri recco. This is an easy one is easy. Yeah he's a father is the only one with kids allen. I have avoided for grazing the plane. Yes that would. Yeah and there was a there was oh yes so he asked he was. He was surprised that that eddie. And al didn't smoke weed. And i explained in a rules. Guy he's not going to break the rules. And then eddie has these panic attacks when he smokes weed curls into a ball in the fetal position and has like meltdowns. Yeah and then he wanted a a a me and you drink and story. That's what he wanted me and you drinking store so i told the the story of the flight many times and that was more of a you drink and store. Yeah so. I told the story of the night which i believe. I've told on the air as well where we go to wilder brazil. Remember the one where he deontay wilder knocked out. I mean you got tuned up that right and so we're sitting next to each other ringside now if you remember. The we asked the author. Walter come on that week and he didn't come on so as he's coming out there announcing cheering forum. I go to you. I'm completely three sheets. Your three sheets so i go. I can't believe guiding honest week. I mean what a joke. And as they announce them the champion while they're like it clicked in your head that he said no it also. You just yelled out every monday. And so we really that man that eating come on the show. You acknowledge a good time across my new york as great. Sometimes you need to do is you need to be like that fan. That screaming was also fun. Fact to that story. What a great night that was. That was a great night. That was a real fun night. So anywhere dukes gazarian recco thought. That was a good game. I had fun with that. All right let's go to. Dan carter rats joining us. What's up dan. Our you how you doing you guys doing you know. I'm i'm starting to snap out of it. Dan but earlier i was in a hole but i'm starting to snap out of and i'm feeling pretty good right now. Okay yeah because i tweeted. I wonder what the over under is gonna be on how long this is going to bother you because i know how you are going to be a week. Is it going to be among you feel that you felt deflated. You sound deflated of the i was no. You read me right. Dan sorta scary. That you know me better than most people but that's the truth and You are right you read that right. What i'm going to try to do is i'm going to try to flush this one and i'm going to try to come back tomorrow like it didn't happen. Just use it as a learning experience. Okay that's a good plan. What are you got. I just wanted to say real quick before i get into the giant stuff. I want to say to johnny and rockland. I don't live with my cousin and her boyfriend. I live with my cousin okay. The boyfriend comes over a lot though right. No actually it. Doesn't he hasn't been coming over a lot at all. During the pandemic lives in new york and i told you sunk master flexes Security guards so he's quite involved with that and then during the pandemic he hasn't been coming around coming into coming in from new york and going back and forth jersey and york. But this cousin yours little bit of a slob Yeah leaves a lot of stuff around. You tweeted something out a lot of junk leaving around mail and all sorts of stuff. Yeah ignores the mail unless the male build up for months then hoards it and places and it's just insane but you know what did you talk to her about this or did you just tweet about it. I brought it up to her. Over the five years i lived there. You know in when the postal service email to me. And i had two weeks to make a move i just had to move and move up north from ocean county up to carter at so and then like i told you the last time moving sucks. I'm not moving again until you high. The transplant i would think that any sort of disrespect towards the postal situation. There at her house probably drove you. Crazy that cuts deep just a custodian for the postal service. So what the mail stuff doesn't really bother me but it's just like how do you. How do you ignore your mail for months and just let it pile up like that. That's not functioning as an adult does not getting cold out by dan and carnivora for not being an adult. You know that you rock the only the only loser someone that in for radio station and calls out a regular caller and takes a shot at them to make himself out sound funny. That's doesn't like it man. I i understand our guard regarding the giants mean. I know there's a lot of hype going into You know them and leonard williams and and Golladay but i mean i'm not buying into the giants you know. Restructured soldiers contract. And he kinda sucks. He's overpaid and dalvin. Tomlinson was you know. Went to the vikings they lost in. They released zeitler who was probably arguably their best lineman and then they signed this running back devante booker from denver. For two years who sucked. They could just pick up a running back and like you know the fifth or sixth round or they could have kept gall mitzvah master backup barkley. I like wayne the train man. He's not a bomb ass that there's moves you know god as a stud but you know. He's been hurt lately and he might overpaid from. And then leonard williams was a good move resigning him but if there's no line then how is daniel jones going to get the ball downfield to these people. You know what i mean. He's still gonna get hurried and pummeled. And i think the giant five six win team. I think they'll be better than that. Dan but it is a decent point. I mean last time. We saw nate solder not a good football player. Yeah but you know. He has also point with a rookie quarterback. I mean got guys so much of what goes on. At the line of scrimmage is responsible for who standing behind it think the giants have a good offense and how that player plays the position. When you watch. Tom brady gets rid of the ball quickly. It's out of his hands. He's constantly communicating with all the players on the field and everybody needs a razor level of play. Because they're playing with him. Daniel jones is not there yet. Daniel jones has got to be a clock in his head. He's got to me. I think he's a great athlete. And they should be using his running ability more and he should be using his running ability. More kind of like josh allen up in buffalo. he's got to refine his game. Which josh did and we saw taking. He took it to a whole 'nother level this year. And that's what i think daniel jones has got to do. And it's unfortunately for jet fans something that sam darnold did and again. I go back to the way that he was totally mishandled here. And i just think that you know it'd be better that he moves on anyway but daniel jones. This is his year. This is this is where the giants determine whether or not he is the long term solution to fill the shoes that were you know filled by ally manning for sixteen years. Yeah giants have good offensive line as it stands right now now see. I agree with dan. I thought was a really good player for them. You know they're moving money around and they're trying to figure out ways to make their team better. They probably think that they have a couple young players that could probably they could stick in their. Let me tell you some. They also probably believe daniel jones is going to be better. It's going to be better communicator. Better understand what the hell's going on and he's not going to put the offensive line in on an undue pressure situations where he's holding onto the ball. I want the giants have a big season. i want the jets. Have a big season watched a lot of bad football last couple years but if the giants struggle i hope the offensive line is the problem just to drive al crazy. Because he'll be taking all those phone calls and he'll lose his mind and it's fun when he loses his mind. It's fun when all of us lose our mind. That's the problem. I was talking to somebody about this the other day. One of the many days. I lost my mind on the caller thought to myself. You know that's not really healthy to get that angry then. I also thought to myself lots of people were laughing at that so like sometimes you know and i think is oh said it then is say we need to get alan. Go back to the studio to get angry again. Yes yeah he said they need to have their long commutes where they get annoyed and can't find parking and that's all part of the atmosphere that goes into the show as angst builds genius. I mean it and people love when we're pissed off and we're losing our minds so like i could be more well adjusted. I could go two years of therapy and meditate and get myself and have these little things bother me but that's not good for the show. Having these things roll off my back would not be entertaining. What it what it so. I'm just going to continue to be a mess. Even even let you know was calmer and nicer when he was home. That's true. I know i know we all came back here and just And that's right. That's right what he went off on a caller that mob. My prediction is that more show muggy. Going to be the best seller on the team store as my prediction the the first round sold out they had to just restock. I knew how many were in the first round. Not sure what they put in the first round but They're on round two now so that's got to be good news. I would say thought we work at a celani and barely put any in round one five which sold five bucks hidden there on five to six. You know it's a nice thing for them. You know we throw them a bone so make give them five mugs. They can't possibly have. I've seen the meat accounts. Maybe six on a good day eater. That's gonna be that that's going to sell continue to sell. And by the way go to the wfan team sports wfan dot com slash store. You could check out all the stuff.

Hold on a second. I want to talk to. My audience will be right back with this. Hold on just a second. i'll be right with you. Although be right within the second see it is odd.

Aaron boone says the bullpen will be just fine.

Gio did fail miserably eating the wings today. That he was hoping to at least the amount to which boomer was not surprise. Who had faith that nobody had faith. And you know there's a lot of people who did dammit nick from huntington mr to lappy vagina himself. Not something i need right now and how soon into the ninety seconds when you just knew wasn't a ten seconds ten seconds i ten seconds. I was like this is horrible factor. Didn't make it a ten one a beer. i'd love it. He got him. I don't know pat. Boyle might have drank them all. That was like two years ago. All right let's take a break. All right i'm sorry. And that was no excuses right. Thanks how. I'm making any excuses ally know what happening all right. It's the boomer and geo built ford tough studio. We may not be sad daddy. A lot going on their moment of joy me chomping on those things in slow motion on. Cbs sports network. With the you cannot fail shirt on another thing. I'm never gonna live down all right each morning. Show with boomer esiason and greg nadi boomer and geo and take your life back home with your or what. Yeah one hundred percent i. i'll take that. Yeah you know. I got to have just in case justification to some food out of. Somebody's face with a plunger. I just figure that. I could give the heimlich now. Big enough to do that I would think that that would make a lot more sense for somebody who isn't big enough to give. The heimlich put could actually help somebody if they were on the ground because it shows you in the on how to use it okay that could be just as effective as me giving the hi mike because of my size. I don't want anybody to get hurt. So if i were choking it like you know how. Are you going to be able to give me the and be tough. I'd thrown on the ground at grand. My life back around here is going to give me the heimlich you guys and he could no. He couldn't any picks people up. He's got all that strength. he's got pick me. He's got that weird. He could do it right now while we're in covid protocol right now so well. I wasn't saying actually do it but he could. He would think that you're saying actually do it. Well he could do it though. I could guarantee when you both fully vaccinated guys can pick each other up. I'm telling me he could. I don't think al could do it. No you're jerry may be able to do it now. He's got the stenosis. Get this the noses got you over there. You may pull a back on. Would never even try is not worth it. What am i gaining out of this. No way wouldn't even try what i would do. If you were choking i throw you on the ground. Yes and then i'd stand over here and then plundered i food a fan by the way we do have a special guest on the line. Who would like to talk to you about your eating exploits. Somebody who tried to do it. You did and claims that she did. A better maggie. Are you there well. I didn't mean to insure that way. I wanted to say was i wanted to give geo props for trying their our participation trophy in in our industry and i give you all the credit. You have my number. You could've called. I could've walked you through this thing. Because i know i ate a pizza in two hours and i was able to claim victory and i feel like i could have helped you. Well here's the thing the reason why didn't want to one. I didn't even have the time with his lawyer. Stuff that was going on yesterday was colin. Emt's at three phychi in four the list. Apparently yeah i was told. I played a joke on mark chernoff because i You know i did. The the pizza challenge. And i finished it in somewhere. He was rooting the on. At one point. I know that but then at some point he got very nervous that all of a sudden this was going to end in some kind of lawsuit and i didn't understand why he it was so nervous but to play a joke on him he said. Listen check in with me later on today just so i know you are right so later on that evening. I texted him and just said mark. I'm in the hospital all my god. I said i'm kidding. I'm home in my apartment. Don't worry everything's fine so so turn that. Of course i was fine. I mean i felt awful for a couple of days. But i was fine okay. So he was telling us yesterday that you got really ill and that was the reason why in the company got in trouble. That was the reason why we need an emt here. Yes so you do yes. That's news to me. that's that's not true. I played the joke on. I said i've in the hospital but it was obviously a joke. I was at home. It was just i was just kidding and i was full for a few days but that's it. Oh i'm so sorry if this somehow in any way impacted your challenge. I thought i could have helped you in terms of the mental toughness preparation because it's a mental game until i know so i mean a pizza in two hours and all these wings and ninety seconds i felt was like two different things but yeah i thought you were going to clean the plate by the end of the show gave up at that point i was i was so i was so that was just like on a whim thing and i was just so disgusted with myself and i was like. What am i trying to prove at this point. I think you'd be disgusted with yourself. Did you realize what you were walking into a prep you for that also. Yeah you're right. In hindsight i should have talked to you. I should've talked to adam richmond of man vs food. I should've talked to sean. Marash was done a couple of these things. I should add more conversations. But i got cocky. That's what it came down to. It was like i could do this. I know these guys have tried. But whatever i'm different i can do this. I was with you. Because i walked into that thing field. So confident. like i'm gonna put this pizza down all of all time to spare while i was chew into the last second right. And you puked right right after you puked right in the garbage studios the issue is that you you puked and mark saw that or or basically use that against imagine. I'm the first person to ever puked the fan. No that can't be impute more to be honest with over done yet. Boomer mean but it does. He think i make maggie throw all. Or what like do you. Go was that a dig or great. You just gave me an hour of radio. By by the way what was the impetus to eating the pizza just stupid pride just plain old pride was carlin and bar and i said something about. I could eat a whole pizza. They said they looked at me and said there's no way you can eat a whole pizza. I said what you guys not. Of course i can and that's how it started. It was nothing more than that. It wasn't a contest. It wasn't a giveaway. It wasn't anything just dumped challenges. And i stepped up to the plate and i felt like i had all of new york city like on my on my shoulders that day because people really rooting the on and i felt like i couldn't let them down because at miserable tough when people are cheering for you but you did. It did it. Did it good for you. Thank you and i felt a lot of pressure though. And that was the other thing i was gonna tell gio if i would have been able to talk to him before this. Which is the mental toughness. How much it's going to the pain that's going to set in how much your jaw is going to become. You gotta chew man really chew and then also just the fact that you got to use the momentum of new york city behind you. Yeah i mean you had a two full hours. I was mentally prepare myself with a two full hours of might have done something differently. I was just thinking ninety seconds. There's no problem stuff as many of these things in my mouth. As i can and i'll be fine but that was the probably i didn't have any sort of like liquid or sauce or anything now is that was an issue too. It's just it's an embarrassment you're fine. it's just it's it's like Yeah it's your. You can rebound from this like i totally believe that you can do it. I don't know about the chicken wing. see. I don't also know if you were violent enough about it. Have you ever been to like coney island hot dog. It's violent how they're putting these hotdogs down when you're going fast like sprint like that. It's gotta be like you got to be an animal. I don't think i'll ever do it again. I really don't think i'll ever. Because i just i was too cocky or overconfident embarrassed myself. I don't think i'll ever do it again. So what. I was going to ask you something. Oh yeah when you guys coming back to the studio is ever going to happen. Or what. Ask the affirmation mark chernoff. This is not our. This is not our choice. Yeah so you guys are trying to. Because i liked it at home during the summer and then i didn't like it when the weather wasn't good of like you know what i gotta get back like enough of this but in the summertime was great but now the opposite when it was like a big snowstorm. That was the one day i was like. I'm kind of happy today. Yeah i guess. Well i mean and also i mean there's moose does Moose put the pressure on your like boomer. The pressure on me or we don't there's no like a who could we can't apply pressure to each other telling us not to come in. They want the studios to be kinda air out a little bit and not have a lot of traffic in the studio. So they're telling us stay put. So what's the over under date on you guys coming back. Put it in june i. I know you're fishing for some info here because you picked me to come back. I get i. I was gonna actually i was gonna texture just like worse. Bet you ever made well because it's not up to me. If it was up to me we we. We'd be back but it's not up to us. It's not up to with the thing about amac is that we just think that you're the toughest one of the group that's our. Yes exactly proven it here. I'm one for one and food. Challenge are soft around What are we going on the show today. Might as well get into that fifty five. Oh thanks appreciate that. That's definitely not why came but appreciate it. We are asking if the giants are making the jets bad with how they've been able to spend in free agency. What's joe douglas. Doing in slow clap here for the giants and most importantly their their cap guy kevin abrams. Who somehow made this fit We are talking with where we're doing a little celebration here. Women's history month so gene after men the assistant general manager of the yankees and executive vice president of the yankees is gonna join us later in the show and so much more awesome stuff very good and and so much more. What did you think about. Jj leaving did you guys talk about. Did you know i send. Jj text yesterday congratulating him you know not like a big social media person like i just wanted to tell him congrats on and how excited i am for him. Actually the fed new. I know a few people. I used to work with that. Sports illustrated at the ringer. They are the most creative smart people. I've ever worked with. I think he's gonna have a blast. Do you think that's not saying much since you've been working here since then do you think you see the guy like j. j. Who is like cut through. Can you cut through in the podcast world if you're a local guy like j. j. d. thing i hope so i really do. I think that he's he brings the new york aspect to it. He's also got the gambling knowledge to which obviously if you ever emily birnbaum. Bill simmons. the you know. That's a big part of his whole mo. i think he's gonna fit in really well there and listen. It'd be great if if his podcast breakthrough. That's that's great for everyone and local radio to get more of a national foothold. So i'm all for if you could nominate somebody to take. Jj's spot in the lineup. Who would you nominate. I i mean. Listen i i got so much love for people here. Obviously my man. See max licata you know i think. Jr does a great job. Who am i missing here. I'm gonna leave people out and make people feel bad. Am i missing anybody. I don't know it's your question to answer. Gavin got us. I don't know who do you guys. Think i mean i don't i don't know what they're gonna do. I mean everybody knows. I love sal. And i wanted him to fill in for me for the longest time so glad that he's name is in the mix but you know that's that's but i mean i don't know i like mcmonagle too. I like the person actually worked with the longest. Gargle gone ical. He's good and i know that. Jr has a fulltime job over at cbs sports radio so full-time job. If they give them a fulltime job over here he'd have to think about it. What would you rather do. Those other guys have fulltime on air jobs. So i'm not sure. I don't know how it's gonna go but the interesting book good options and who doesn't wanna come work for the fans so you know. Jj apparently on the fat years it. Yeah i get it all right manual. We'll look forward to moose and maggie. And i'm sure mussa's jealous because i know he wants to get on the show all the time he text me all the time. Why don't you put me on. Why don't you talk to me a magazine on twice now. I don't understand so well. We'll have to post very different appearances for this show very very different appearance. I like this one better all right. All right maggie. We'll see a little bit later. We'll be listening to ten right maggie gray of moose and maggie. Boomer's got something for you including a sports minute. We'll come right back. Chernoff just want us to know. I wanna puke for four from essentially overeating in food. Challenge was maggie.

My compadres compadres the vape God himself. It's twelve thirty two in the morning. We've reached now Thursday morning. We've been amoral aimlessly waiting for the goddamn dodgers in Kenley Jansen to close out the Tampa Bay rays they refuse to do that. They're a bunch of assholes. This is insane. It's all's holds better though kind of Hello Tommy Yeah we're in limbo right now. We're just as in limbo is you could ever be as some loud ass. Shit Shit starts right outside my apartment church in here that and here I did say to you today. I was like hey you know we got this plan for tonight. Tapis don't win tonight. Things could get a little hairy and like the worst possible scenario was that the rays game somehow goes to extra innings. Actually it started earlier the nights before ten o'clock and now we're just here right now. It's what the top the eleven and the dodgers game there. They managed to to be down now to runs. They're down eight six. What is their problem? What other razor winning eight six yeah? What did you think it was? I thought it was still six six last night. You know the reason I said let's record this because Metro's a fucking homer before the like N. Even started in the eleventh and then then Fam- double they sacked sacraments eight six rush it Yeah Shit maybe win tomorrow and they have a more more proper celebration. I will say it's kind of funny seeing all the Yankee beat writers outside the Locker Room in like raincoats in coach and just and just looking like the dumbest people on Earth like like we think we have it bad right now. I mean we don't but I mean Villes guys have the go home and they got the raincoats on to really hate us right. If you're watching the yes network showalter Walter Setup Buck showalter saying like you know like I'm like he's still a manager Modi's. I'm going to send these guys home. He's like I don't know you know. After a certain point wait is true you begin tomorrow on everyone to be shot for tomorrow and it isn't important aim with you know the Astros and everything and you WanNa win to clinch so yeah. I'm I'm worst case scenario would have been this game went like eighteen innings and which I guess could happen and the raise one but off the rails GonNa win in eleven. I guess it's not too bigalow disaster. I think we're past the point like I think the Yankees are going home right now. I don't I cannot imagine it's eight six raise. I can't imagine staying around. We waited this long. Let's just see the end of it good point though Tanaka not there. She's pitching on Thursday Brian era now so he kinda everyone there you also want to do it off a win like best-case off win so like they just make a decision like hey guys fuck this. Let's just win our own and we'll be happy tomorrow. It's the loss on Wednesday. The you know the Weird Lawson suspending whatever yeah conjure eller show a little bit but it's all good I will say I was getting annoyed with the fans on twitter being like Oh. It's just it doesn't feel right they they shouldn't celebrate after laws it doesn't feel like shut the fuck fuck up late because the res playing a West Coast game complicated things but if the res played at seven o'clock and you know they they lost are sorry yeah. The rays lost a Nancy's finish the same time it also lost the clinch. You have ever right to go celebrate just as hard as you would. If you want I mean what are the division. You're not celebrating winning the game or losing the game that night. It's a season-long accomplishment newbury first division title in seven years feel I mean just shut out. Feel doesn't feel right after a loss. Don't tell them they can't celebrate as Cassandra loss. I mean that's ridiculous. I think within five minute or thirty seconds to a celebration. Nobody's GonNa have any recollection of which is the game anyway yeah at the end of the day. I'M GONNA sign with my guys. In my players. The guys you have the winds on the field field and they wanted to pop champagne. You know what so I agree with them. Pop Champagne the I don't care whatever they wanted to the way today. I'm on board. That's who I won't. I won't go against them. That's their call is their accomplishments their achievement they do whatever the fuck they want. They clearly won the pop the champagne tonight do whatever you want but we will put on ice and other day I think me and you we said before we started the show that we will also we will be doing an instagram live dual thing if and and when they went on Thursday so you can get our reaction you know live reaction stuff to the champagne because I think you know we wanted to give you that show you know you the reactions and whatever so we'll give you a little bit of that on Thursday night if they were to do it on a win. If it's a loss I don't know I don't know we'll do the same thing you know. They're they're not collude though when Thursday and you'll get your little reaction we do have a lot to talk about though first of all Dell Matanzas I mean we're starting to show a bad bad note but we I mean the number one story right now del Matanzas as an torn Achilles. I mean it's partially torn my you know there have to see if they're gonNA need surgery. They don't know yet. He's in a walking boot. After the game on on Wednesday I got agreed. CC kind of like acqu teary eyed moment but Dalla Matanzas appears to happened on the strike where he thought he was three outs and there's only two and and he lands a little awkwardly looks like and he's dancing off the Malecki always does something he's done a thousand times and tears. He looked so good on Sunday so good eight eight pitching to strikeouts looked incredible feeling great. The bullpen is as good as it's ever ever go. Maybe in the history of baseball going into the playoffs you know better than the royals when they want it all and then you come into the twitch on Tuesday as one down the show and you're like you see the news. I'm like no the game's over you know. I'm feeling Great Severino Pitch Great. We'll get into on a second and you're like Dell Tours Achilles. I'm like we talking about why you plan any joke on me like this and yet it was a nightmare it is it's tough to call the season from hell when they're going to you know win the division in win over Andrei Games but the amount of things that have gone wrong. They see it's just it is beyond belief. Yeah I was out there. Jack Mack goes to me. Oh you see potential towards Achilles and it didn't register in my head yeah because like he's not a Yankee fan base on the Yankee Fan so I was like he has the wrong name like is something wrong with us. The wrong name is reading it like there's something is wrong. Reported for the there's no way is just was my brain was not computing the down Britan's could have possibly possibly like they had an off day on Monday to committee autumn. It seems fine Sunday like it might bring honestly my brain still does not compute how it happened. I have a weird theory. Sorry like conspiracy here so on the honor getty images site you know they have all pictures of Yankees one of the other things so Monday. Cc had the whole team was at the Legacy Foundation dinner for CCC bath. You like the end of the year thing Delon's in pictures with his girlfriend. I don't know if they're married right whoever but like they're smiling and like he wouldn't did he hurt their. You think maybe maybe dancing. Could that possibly be real real like that's not being talked about right now because he looked fine pitching like come off the mound. You would think like you'll see towards something. You'd see a little bit of a winter whatever he's all smiles like you. Don't notice anything like I don't know I I've been holding in saving for the show like part of me thinks something might have happened at that dinner like an accident of some sort. I don't know warn Achilles like he's not gonNA be too happy. Sunday knows Monday night to go out. You know yeah. Maybe that's a possibility I didn't want to. I've been thrown out on the twitter sphere yet. I don't see I don't know if I'm GONNA 'cause like I only want positive thoughts. I don't want to start start anything but like dude he was at that dinner on Monday with his girlfriend wife wherever you were caller and they looked happy and he wasn't a walking boot and then a Tuesday comes in and the injury happens. It's like some paper he moved okay tonight right when he approved and he's a walking boot who then he's not in the walking with at dinner. You would think if he had that injury he wouldn't have shown and saying he can't show up to the dinner but like I don't know it is like he's I'm still moving. Pretty fine is shorts. I think he's like maybe at the hospital getting like again exam Zam or something if something's up. I don't know if I don't know I don't know if it's true. I'm just saying like that was weird. That just like something. Unquote went off my head on my That's interesting just something to think about but anyways a brutal injury not a season championships over injury nothing like that that but it just gets a little bit harder you know because out of you know seems to be running in a little bit of fumes right now. He hasn't been really locked down yet. The rest of the bullpens been fine Canley. Look Great on Wednesday night. Britain's been brock's Chapman's been Greg Green's been great but consensus being slid into that into a whatever will weapon actual you can use them. Wherever ever makes everything so much easier? It's like almost you need. A four innings from the start of the game is over. You know five innings you need. If you five things you need you need like four innings out of six pitchers Ritz really and Batangas and I said this time and time again when he's on like he was even with his ninety five our stuff on Sunday one of if not the most dominant pitchers in as a relief pitcher in baseball. That's how good that guy is so to lose him brutal title. I think it's also brutal. He's GONNA be thirty two next year. He's a free agent. He lost this entire the shoulder injuries and now he's got this. If you need surgery that you know next year's gone just brutal for him. Just the guy of self wanted to get back to your so badly. He's from Washington Washington Heights. He wants to be potter. World Series Championship bronze so badly you know it's been killing him just seeing him out there. In something he was so happy and this is just brutal for him not just the the team for for him. Now it saw it sucks like you said it sucks because her either I mean yeah they've been the best one of the best teams baseball season without Adam so it's not like this is a loss as much of it's not in addition. If that makes any sense dodgers two men on now in on the eleventh this this would be annoying annoying but okay sorry keep going but yeah I mean I just feel so bad for him personally to work your way back like that and to finally I'm sure he felt like Oh. Oh great I'm going to be part of this. October was so happy you know it. It sucks. It's size sports to suck sometimes and I don't know I I know it's like people spoil Danke fantastic twenty seven rings about to win your hundred gain clinch the division. You're complaining about how life isn't fair. Amount of injuries sustained. The season really isn't fair. It's insane and it's never happened before. It's never happened before if the amount of injuries to this team happened to any any other team that team is in last place west this many injuries that many important people the last place there's no other team in baseball. I think well at least they don't make the playoffs. I won't say they don't make the playoffs they don't. They don't win the division this easily. It just jumped all now best record in the league. That just doesn't happen. It just shows you how good this organization's been put together or that. They were able to sustain all this and still be one of the best teams. I mean. They're so a job. They've done Brennan's together Prince Team together together. This organization is incredible. They lost all these guys. This is basically plead this season it not even half strength basically and that this half ish version of the Yankees is still which is better than everyone else. It's just the depth of this team have crappy cash from credited boon for keeping everyone's head had you know on check and and not you know anyone who came up kind of felt welcomed him as you are important to this team and I think boone really did a great job of that and that's probably why Boone wins manager of the year in my opinion that's another story when he does win it but with potential going down as what these these actually GonNa win it. It's him in Delhi right pretty much. Just give it to Rocco Bowl Deli. They tailed off. I mean they're still GonNa win the division but they held off I mean I think it's such a manager there move just give it to like the twins guy well. There's always Yankee bias with awards the she the factor that in I don't know I think he deserves it giving them any injuries to keep everyone's everyone come you know they had the show is the mytalk men's and and they still won. I think it should be him. I'm like you said I'm just thinking bias yeah for sure. That's always I mean probably give it a core or something. Core wanted again but with breath batanes is going down as fucked up as seen is that meant to someone was coming back up at mammoth Luis Severino we were all nervous going I mean I was really he really nervous like around the game start at six thirty and obviously swimming very good joke on twitter I don't have the name on top of my head but they said how seventy didn't give him some ten minutes to warm up for game three of the AIDS so he gave himself ten months this time those kind of a funny joke but yes he starts on Tuesday drilling. They said he's seventy seventy five pitches what they're going to give them and you don't know if he's GonNa overextend himself you know he's me over Severino's known really channels emotions and an pitch with emotion and fire and you just don't want the guy that just hurt himself out there you know just trying China overthrow and trying to be no one Ryan out there and he comes out. You know I was so nervous around five o'clock once like the office started clearing out and you we're doing the twitter stream whatever and I was like Holy Shit like just don't fuck just don't be don't be a joke like pitch well. Please just pitch well pitch healthy and just get out of there and three or four innings fine and it comes at the first guy that Brian Goodwin. This asshole works up twelve pitch at Bat. I mean we only got seventy five pitches Max of Severino no and we wasted twelve on the first bat. Are you kidding me. We're doing matthew simple math and we'll be lucky to get two to three innings right now and then he gives a boob single right after that I think it's the Fletcher but he does luckily get out of it. Gets a nice ground ball to shift and then a double play ball the pools. Who can't I mean no one is no one is losing a foot race? Our pool stays like no one. Even people like one leg. You can beat out money balls a smoking okay Albert Pool Halls. I actually think so I gently of course dodgers make it eight seven okay so the topic run second game but yes so he gets out of it it gets out of it and like seventeen pitches and the takeaways there. You can't really put he wasn't putting hitters away. Fine just got out of it. We'll find second seconding strikes out to guys the miles per hour starting to tick up. He's getting stronger. He looked great from innings. Two or four and the coolest part of it was the third inning is Mas Paris his speed charter to go down a little bit and boom on the palm after three and he's like why he goes so you're ninety two ninety three. You know you're going to tidy no. I'm not tired out there. I'll get stronger and it came out and through ninety nine miles an hour so it's like okay we several years back back and he was so good all game. It really was effortless the way the ball is exploiting on his hand. He's locating a slider up the boss. Brown sliders were worried right about that was right where it should have been change. It was good everything was good. It was a really good outing for Severino Gimme that Sevi- all playoffs long I we don't even more in four innings. GimMe said before innings shutout would be ideal. Obviously foreigners one-run health warnings to runs when it be the end of the world. That's what we need out of him. I mean meal probably seem to more to more starts right. Yeah I mean I'm I'm like if there was a planet game five. I become hate having another two two so he gets tuned up a little bit more we could build back outfits but everything. I needed to see Tuesday night. He had he had the fast ask law he had the he had the off speed stuff had a slider control the strike zone like yeah. It wasn't an eight inning shutout dominant performance but but I just don't think there's now enough time left in the air where it sever is going to get to that point Gimme four five innings of really good semi and I'll take he got eleven times out of ten. I think the plans again like ninety pitches. which I think is reasonable? I mean through what sixty seven a star like. We're talking about him in like bullpen role I know I think that's the plan I think like we were kind of like confused by the whole thing. It was just like I think we were just we thought the plan was to be like it kind of guy following the opener but it seems like they just wanted to be a starter five five star which is great fine. Take no but overall like I'm feeling good. I was a little nervous from that thing where he wasn't throwing hard and then he just ninety nine I was nervous. We're GONNA wake up today given how the seasons GonNa on me like a reaction everything he's done for the year but didn't hear think so I assume if he had normal soreness and he's good to go for his next start and hopefully flee that will be an eighty start. I think maybe they'll go to because they threw sixty seven this time so everything's good which is cute. I didn't think I didn't they know how smooth it was going to go but I think it was like best case scenario so yeah just a great which is scary right. Well things go like what goes up must come down right so part of that coming down today so the the Yankees curse this year the Voodoo doll curse has hit the whole team obviously what twenty nine guys and the I l. a. Million Miss Games John Sterling for the love of God had the mistime Mike Michael Kay mistime. It's time and finally hit the bloggers fear on on Wednesday. I was struck by a bicycle on Wednesday four tweet dawn so I left the office I was going to go meet your the Tattoo Guy who's in today. That's my buddy was meeting him at the Bar and I'm crossing thirty third AH street and sixth avenue going towards fuck was going to so sixth avenue going towards Second Avenue and it's only one way traffic going to the right side so I'm so I'm waiting at the light with a bunch of people and then the light rusel so no clutch tonight yeah so far so I saw the white the white sign goes everyone starts walking and it's only one way traffic. It's only going from right to left and so I look to the right you know making sure. No one else is coming because that's where the traffic comes from and as I'm walking I'm here watch out. Watch out watch out from this fucking asshole scum of the Earth bicyclists. It's the worst person on the planet coming left to right the opposite way buddy. You are nowhere near. It's not even a green light. You are nowhere near in your right and what is as you crashes into me. My left arm my left arm. I actually thought I broke my arm. For about ten minutes. I literally got to the Bar I was like panting and my the pages would not subside and and eventually got it still hurts like fucking bitch and actually have chest pain because the bicycle also went to my chest but I didn't get knocked down to eight the IB basically eight the bicycle and got into a nice shouting match a nice as I'm like walking away from the whole thing just oh curse getting a good like easy ten to the guy it was. It felt so strong what I was saying. He's like you're not in. You're like what the fuck are you talking about dude you. We're not like it is a long fucking way going the wrong way. It's a right light. I I couldn't say it in twenty. You can't tell someone WanNa die on twitter anymore. You get immediately like in Twitter Jill so I think some of the lines of like I hope he loses the keys to his house. I hope he gets an S. T. D. YOU and he gets arrested for tax evasion or something like that but we're now in a trustee right now. I hope that guy dies. I hope he dies a terrible arable fucking death fuck that guy fuck you fuck you. I hate cyclists in general but man if you just like going the wrong way and just crashing in the people like a Goddamn astle fuck you do to help you blow your tire. You fall down the sewer and alligator issue alive. That's I hope you die. I'm getting fired up. I just love getting reasons to get mad man especially at cyclists I mean I feel like it's pretty universal. Everyone just hates these. fucking scumbags fights has led the cause well but I mean that's that's always what I thought. If you're are GONNA be look if you want to be a little harto piece of shit and ride your bike in the middle of the street fine but then you got to abide the abide by the rules of fucking road buddy like you know when it when it's a red light you stop when it's a one way street you don't go the opposite way you want to be in the street. Obey the laws of the Road I love. I never got hip I want. I don't WanNa get hit by one. It's not funny what it's not fun. We love to just like come. Just close up. Don't get hit but I still get to get shout like there's so so many things I'd love to say. I'm a little jealous. You got that opportunity. There have been many times this year. We're like this Yankee season as bad as the injuries have. It's been a dream and I've been looking ahead and every time I walked to work occasionally when I walk to work I think just don't die today. Don't just Kinda. Just make it to November. This is going to be so much fun this ride this team. It's magical you can feel it. Just make it to November then you can die and for like a split second. I thought I thought I was GONNA die for no not like this is bullshit. Luckily I'm still I'm still what did. TJ Just how we feel what the hell the TJ to send us. I don't know what that was what I was and I can even and live with a bicyclist like you know how like they just don't obey the traffic signs. They just go when it's red or whatever that's fine if it's still like the flow of traffic brought I'm not gonNA look to my left. When it's a one way street the other way you know so just just insane fucking can't fuck that guy I hope he died a miserable death very soon and I hope to God? He's a Red Sox Fan Fil no way that guy I hope to God. I don't share the same phantom as that guy. There's no way no way assholes. Also assholes like Yankee no way that Ashkenazi accuweather says no fucking chance moving on to catch my breath. CC's final home start was Wednesday Wednesday district side in the second inning. That was cool it. Did it feel like to you. That's it like as a whole. No I think he'll be on the postseason roster. especially with Batanes down felt weird to me. I don't know I got a weird vibe from it. I don't know how how important his appearances will be in October. I don't think there'll be that I mean there's a chance he number stuff on mount again. There is no. I think he'll pitch pitch next week. I think he will 'cause. They're gonNA try him in the relief mode yeah I what I expect to make a deep run so I think he'll probably pitch in the postseason but I will say one little pet peeve of mine. I'm getting so tired of people like almost babying see see see where I mean not always. There's some I saw some stuff I think he's twitter but also I saw it in the post game show like Oh you know. CC He pitched pretty well tonight. No he did not seem to and two-thirds innings and allowed two runs left with the baseload look. I know he's not the same pitcher but I honestly it's a big. It's more insulting to see into his legacy to be like Oh. Yes see see you did pretty good tonight two-thirds choice. You know it's not that that's a garbage start art. CC knows that's a bad start. You know he was obsessed with this guy used to be a workforce goes seventy eight any and I get that he's not that guy anymore. Don't expect them to be that guy anymore but I don't want him to. I don't want to act like our GRANDPA or like a little four year old. We're going to be on a different scale. Come on like I like interest insulting thing to see to have a go all right. He did pretty well today. I also don't think he's only anywhere near healthy like I think he's like like he was pitching most of the season forty percent healthy. I think he's like twenty five percent healthy right now so like I think they all knew that that's why I get the vibe like I don't know it could have been it like that can happen his last like Sh- I think that's his last start ever. I think it's a less start. He ever has everything awesome as a reliever and it would work to you know last star comes inky Stadium Yeah so I duNno we're vibes funny thing his him dappling everybody the first guy so that was actually really really sweet and they're they're good buddies but you you made the the comment on twitter about you would be a disaster and adapt line. I think you fall in line with never never kind of went for like the handshake when everyone's like i. I'm a pretty good dapper. I think I would have been right there with Delon like I think that would have been my move. Whatever Dylan did is what I would have went with but you would have went with like the weird handshake like half hug look like There's no possible way that gone smoothly for me. It's not so today so head coach Dana Dana Cavalier and then you'll hear his interview soon. We had a pretty good everything with them. Greeting a good good by a good I could buy when handshakes that was pretty right but then you miss this there was a second goodbye on his way out where I like. He gave his left hand. I I gave my right hand and it was like site. We're like standing side to side. Basically Oh was like we were like holding like totally shaking your hand. Yeah almost like holding hands or it was done so well and I blow it at the end. God God damn. That's tough 'cause pretty simple like hello goodbye with that guy feel like and that's tough. You can't handle that we have to go back to we have to go back to the drawing longboard. I feel like we've we've gone to. I don't want to be good adapts. You know what I mean. It just never going to be good. I'm fine okay suit to be good at when when the new wave of greetings comes by you gotTa jump on that when I go away you got to be the first one like yet all in in here in this study to show them but yeah obviously see very sad who knows that's start off to see what else I'll say within the game pretty much the reason Yankees lost Alino not good again really struggling -vely in terms of in her in his standards Kinda fall a little bit down the trash realities running on fumes out if he's just having a weird you know having a weird go but where are your concerns out of you know. I'm not super concerned the timing of it for the playoffs obviously in great but I think sometimes uh-huh hitters pitchers used to like it happens. I would say I give them the weekend. We saw him Wednesday. I'd I'd say you know what clear mind don't worry about it. WE'RE NOT GONNA use Thursday through Sunday and then next week try to get them two to three appearances where he's rested sustained and he'll be good and you can have confidence themselves. We can have confidence in him going supplyhouse. That's that would be highlighted so he's now giving up a run in his last four appearances France's one of those was unearned. we has like eight blown saves this year. They're pretty well. One saves her yeah. I know I know it's just a weird style. They might be nine now. Yeah I mean not overly concerned because his stuff is just discussing and you know he's shown time and time again again but this is probably the worst stretch he's been in as the Yankee looking back and says of concern you know he's had like one really bad appearance here and there but in terms of like stringing them together together. I think this is the worst that's a little concerning. They do generally give him plenty of time off. This was only his seventh appearance in nineteen days. I feel like that's not crazy at all. That's almost like three days rest two days rest in between appearances so yeah a little concerned but nothing like I'm hitting the panic button but I just WanNa get shit together so maybe he doesn't need the weekend offer something. We'll see another guy who came back so they kind of why thought like death came after today with the bicyclist was Giancarlo came back nice to see him back. I think we've been pretty firm with that. We Watch on call it back right yeah. I think I definitely want to go back. Look the hazy gets saint he two years ago. We'll be talking about like there was a tweet from is the network account Avocado Return. Some other flies were just just discussing. We don't want him back. Oh we don't need some four three restrike. Outlook was great in the playoffs last year. WHO's been plants? Last year hasn't been great in clutch situations but you know what is a great baseball appoint. He's capable of going on a tear that can carry a team. He could have not going to say he'll do it but I think it's a possibility I know you're gonNA say that. He is an owner like era. Yeah I mean he's as all the potential to do that. That's how good he's he's talented and Iran was just just as bad as I mean in a bigger sample size much bigger sample size just as bad you know so as dumb and he comes up to the plate fall behind to this I back and rips a double and everyone's like Oh all right. He's pretty good yeah. Freely this guy. He hits the ball one hundred ten miles an hour at least every single time he makes contact. We could probably used that probably be probably good. You haven't the lineup and then in the outfield. He's no slouch. Either People Forget. He's one of the best arms in baseball. I mean the guy he had headed here. The guy dead the rights if gosh okay hang onto the ball beat them by pretty good margin. Do you feel her can help us in October. You guys are morons morons. If you don't want that crazy to be the starting left fielder not tober too especially with Hicks Garnering Center judging right. I even important he he is. You WanNa put an X. factor. Whatever in October I think you can make the case that is from Carlos and yeah I mean I am not to put this guy? I'm blessed but I mean you're the first person that comes to my mind. This Guy Brian Barcelona. Hell the last name to wells. He tweeted me this morning wrong for not wanting to call back in the lineup. I really think think that huckster lineup as way too much for me. He's GonNa kill so much momentum. I think I'm okay if he comes back and hits like eighth but no way he should be near the top. I mean get it together. Guys get it to you call standalone we're going on the record the short porch we are very pro Giancarlo and if he goes over four three strikeouts in LDS game on I can't say I can't say we'll be standing by that much. Ah Give Him more than a game like if he has one strikeout critical spot. I'll be like look. This guy can't believe me back but you know that that's playoff baseball. Almost it's just corrobos getting your head because Kobe the first part. He was probably had his finger. If I know him he was watching it I I bet I know he's watching the first at that and he had his finger on the Tweeden. Provinces Tweets Chroma crows can get my head. It's more just like myself getting right right right so but I mean that's that's the only thing that's GonNa make you feel negative Carl. At this point just well. I get some Yankee twitter and stay away from it. Shit read our tweets. We'll be positive we'll be positive I was pretty negative two years ago kind of change my tune. We'd positive now especially because I cheated death. Today I will be negative right now though are did you see these yankees new era caps that yes me as one of the worst hats ever see my life. I think I need was why why there's just so bad that I think I like them. They look you have like a bunch of toothpicks tape to the hat. I'm not a hat person not knicks. Whatever what are they called when you put him in ears your wax they called you tips to cue tips cue tips tape to a fucking and I'm kind of thrilled by to be honest doesn't display hat? I feel like it's a good display hat like just avenue desk not to aware display hat. Yeah that's true. I don't know I see everybody hating on it and it's like I think I need that. I mean what you'll see is just the people who like just go against the tide. They'll just take all yeah. This is sick just for just to go against the tide. I won't be one of those people that had sticks. We can do better than that. Let's let's let's be real here. Folks what else oh the cool moment happened at fenway happened the couple of days ago like cool the how about this the most memorable moment of the entire season for the red sox. was someone hitting a homer against the Red Sox your strength ski kit hitting hitting a home run. That's the most memorable moment at fenway this year. How about that? It was cool. It was pretty cool yeah. This is pretty cool but that's the that's all the red talk to hang their hat on. Someone had a hormone awesome pretty cool. Fuck what an eighteen red sox baseball baby yeah all right so I'm still like hurting from this bicyclist thing. It's just I can't even tell my mom is not anything. Oh my gosh we go to the hospital. You got hit by a full speed bikes. Are you kidding me. She what you almost tonight as almost at Marquee nightclub with Gashi the rapper you almost want. How close did he go so so Tuesday Gashi rappers m coming out Friday pretty basin over a million followers on instagram has the song my year with Jisi he came in Tuesday's managers like a big Fan? I met him last year was like you're the best are going to be on Saturday night. Live one day man thank. You like drought just I. I don't even know you handing out incredible supplements like that I died me a drink. I I did a video with Gashi and afterwards. I think I'm just in Gosh. She's entourage walks. He's like Oh man like Marquis nightclub tomorrow night. I got a private table or celebrate my house. It's only like you know close friends and stuff that you could come bring wherever you want and I wasn't going to go. I mean going to a club on Wednesday night. It would have been cool to go with nightclub with rapper but it's a Wednesday night the newer recording tonight I'm tired like I I don't need that but then I was talking to mark Mush about it and he was like we gotta go you crazy. That's the whole reason we they have this job so marty was gonna come with me but then once I I mean it's one ten right now so like I want to begin to marquee like probably two or two thirty like God. That's just not happening like I'm so comfortable in my bed. The idea of going on right now is out of the question. I will go to album release party tomorrow night but yeah my night ah I considered for a little bit spending my night out a nightclub with around the thought of that gets me is Austin. I hate clubs I I can't I really want to light clubs so when I tell you know an elevated surfaces I do like to do that. I it's like when I first heard toilet on.

Enjoy we now welcome in the former director of strength conditioning and performance for the New York Yankees he helped lead the team to a world championship in two thousand nine the same year he was awarded the Nolan Ryan Award given to the top strength and performance former coach ladies and Gentlemen Dana Cavalier. What's going on man now much? Thanks for having me guys what's happened by. We thought we change up of it. We've had a bunch of players in this year but given even the current state of the team. We thought we'd we take we pick at the mind of strike the kitchen coach because I don't know what the Hell's going out yeah yeah. No a lot of people you know look towards has the strength coach. When there's a lot of injuries I always say listen? It's it's it's not always the case that it's the strength guy and that it's his you know his fault right that players get hurt ralliers. There's get hurt. Sports players get hurt and there's a lot of reasons why they get hurt. We'll get into for sure I. I wanted just for those who really are not familiar because I feel like you you play more of a behind the scenes role with the team. Just explain yourself what what was your exact role with the guys you were there from do you the strength and conditioning coach from two thousand seven to two thousand fourteen fourteen. Just explain your role and how you got started with all that yeah so for me. I have a degree in sports medicine from the University of South Florida down in Tampa and grew up big Yankee Anky fan grew up on long island not too far from the stadium and ultimately the strength coaches responsible for on field performance not the the XS and Os and not the hitting that the pitching and not the outcomes in that in that regard but we are responsible for making sure that the players are ready to play every single day you you know they're strong. They're not carrying extra body fat there nutrition's in check we assist in the rehabilitative process when players get hurt and at the same time we work with every player you're on the team to pump them up and get them excited to play every single night because one hundred sixty two games. That's a lot of games spring training playoffs to grind it's to grind and there's a lot of transitions most emotionally and physically throughout the season. So what were you doing in your career before joining the Yankees and how'd you end up land yeah yeah well. I practically yeah pretty interesting. You know I decided again your kid. I decided to leave the Big Apple and had the Florida land of the palm trees but the reason reason I went to Tampa was because I knew the Yankees were they're smart so right from the jump. When I was nineteen years old I started as an intern with the New York Yankees and it was an unbelievable achievable story because you know here I just at the time it was steinbrenner field or legends field and I pulled up in my car and I'm literally literally taking pictures of players with flip phone through a chain link fence years this this was back in two thousand and four okay so I'm taking pictures through a chain link fence sending them home to my friends my family? I'm just amazed that it's February and it's eighty degrees and literally that day I ended up going back to an internship I was doing with the University of South Florida football and the head coach calls me in the office and says hey I wanNA talk to you. I think I'm about to get whacked and he says no listen. I got an opportunity for you. If you're interested did the head strength coach with the Yankees just called and he would love to have somebody there turning basically handing out water handing out towels and you know watching the weight room and nobody's in there I said as a matter of fact I just got back from there and I would love that opportunity so literally the next day I drive up the day before a parked a mile and a half away because I couldn't afford parking college kid and you know that day I pull up. I got a spot for myself. You know already reserved. I walk in the office. They say hey are you. Dana Cavalier Lisa Yeah they throw credential on my neck. It's gotta see for Clubhouse in an F for field access. They throw me in you know Yankee gear and next thing you know the same picture field. I'm taking a picture of a day earlier now. I'm in the middle of that field. My life changed the real. That's all that's too quick one day. Okay Hey dirk and I have an autograph your water and here I am you know or you know a few years earlier. I'm I'm at the shoe store by Derrick jeeter sneakers because it was the cool thing to do and you're nice school at the time so it was a really quick transition and it was an amazing ride you know from that point had to cut my teeth as an intern. I didn't know a whole lot but I was able to Jason Giambi called it well get baptism by fire jumping and you'll figure it out took over and just a few years though right so yes yeah yeah yeah so in nineteen years old. That's when I got an internship position but just a few years later you know there was a rash of injuries and I got promoted. I went to Brian cashman sweet down in Texas. Phil Hughes was throwing a No hitter through seven hundred twenty hurt him hurt his hamstring in Texas hot night the the next morning again cash calls me into a suite which was palatial and he says listen. I WanNa make you the interim head guy. Would you have any interest in that and I I say it was like my Jerry Maguire. Moment I walk out and I'm like holding myself together not going to believe this and that was the real point of transition you know in my career but but I we'll say that internship and getting to know the players you know who they were and having nothing to lose is a nineteen year old kid. That's set me up for success down down the road. Who was the first guy as an intern the a player that came up to you introduced himself that you developed some sort of relationship yeah so the first player I've ever had a relationship with when I first started was homer homer Bush okay okay but the player that helped me was my gateway player to get everybody else was actually hip Asada pretty good one yeah and he's one of my best friends to date and when you get Hor hey there's a package deal that comes with that you also get Derek jeter and when you get Derek jeter you get everybody right so so it was an amazing ride and hey I remember we were in the back of a clubhouse in auxiliary clubhouse in Chicago playing the White Sox and it was just me and him and he he says hey listen this winter would you doing? I said nothing really of any plans. He says I want you to come down to Miami. I'm getting older and I need somebody on me every single day making sure training right stretching me taking care of my tissue work all of that can you do it and I said Yeah So. He put me up on Miami beach here. I am like twenty three years old right. I have the opportunity of a lifetime and that relationship got really tight and there was another player that also lived in Miami Alex Rodriguez together we were able to I formed a relationship with both of those guys and from that point it was it was it it was amazing pretty good so obviously two hundred nine you know they win the world series and you're a big part of that. What stood out to you for that? You still have the ring of Yeah Yeah I would never. Do you ever take that off. You know what most of the time it's I always say. It's in my underwear drawer so okay. I brought it to that yeah. I figured it was it's fitting for the show yeah and also don't forget it's our ten year anniversary which is by now feels like Oh yeah just like two years ago right right but so what stood what's your from that two thousand nine team from the other years because obviously they had won the world series since two thousand going inside a little drought similar to the drought. They have right now yeah yeah so what stood out to you well you know that year what we were just getting into the transition between Joe Torry and Joe Girardi Joe took over Girardi took over the year prior prior right but that year we had signed see Safia and we also signed. Aj Burnett one thing I learned early in my career from Joe Torry was pitching and defense wins championships tips to share as well to share as well right so so techs unbelievable defensive player and you've got to really strong arms that came in right in Asia so right there. It's like hey pitching. Defense wins championships. It's two thousand nine you typically need three starters to win right right and we just picked up two horses in addition to having a depended who was what we call old faithful when game two comes around you want Andy Pettitte on the mauser and you knew it was going to be a lock so that was the difference you know we had Nick Swisher who brought a different vibe and energy to the clubhouse that was very atypical of Yankee Culture Culture which was very quiet subdued and traditional you know he came in last in the music and making everyone in a loosen up a little bit so you had a mix of new talent Alan and old champions coming together and you had some guys those new those new editions had not one before so there is a hunger that because you have a quote from Your Book Habits of champion You have a quote never get too high never get too low. Yeah I took that from Derek jeters Nick Swisher. Go against that yeah you you know what the here's the thing right so swish he he was such a momentum player definitely goes against that but it was also one of the things that would sometimes get him a little bit of trouble because you get so high and so excited that on the way down his energy would come with it and everything else would go with the two but actually got that quote from Derek jeter never gets you high. Never get you too low and that's what you see somebody that totally and same thing with moe and same thing with a lot of those hall of fame type players they never got so excited and they never ever crashed. It was always even if they went over four or four four you had you never knew their disposition was always the same was their unique feeling being in the clubhouse all season long. Did you just feel like this is a team of destiny. I remember that year. I mean all the walk off Wednesday. Walk down. I'm thinking all the new guys state. It was like everything is just coming together with quiet confidence all season where something special is happening. I think we knew we were a good team but but ultimately we also scuffled a little bit there. There was a transitional meeting that took place in Atlanta and you know Brian Cashman led that meeting he started off by saying listen. You know this isn't a panic Hanoch meeting but we're going to have a meeting and talk about where we are right now and honestly from that point forward that that was when we really blasted off and everybody got together and started moving in the same direction. We always say we have a saying the equipment guy with the Yanks Rob Kacoos is a good friend of mine and he always says listen when you have more players in in the cart then pulling the cart. You don't have a very good chance to win but that meeting would did was cash basically gave everyone a little bit of a smack in the rear and said hey everyone out of the cart grab hold and let's pull this thing down the field and from that point we did and every player picked each other up there was also one more transitional moment and that was in September timber. We were playing the Toronto Blue Jays and there was a pitch that was throwing it jorges facade and you can go back and see the video and he tells the pitcher. I don't know Dunbar maybe last night and he says don't do that don't do that and he was a very juiced up player. In a lot of ways very excited and literally he was coming around the you've got the first and he was trying to score from second pitchers coming to cover the plate. He's nowhere near Georgie and Georgie reaches out with his arm and hits them so what happens benches clear that was the moment that pushed us through September and the first coach. I've worked under Jeff. Mangle was in the first rank coach teams come together. When there's a fight for I mean you could make that comparison with this year's team with the whole savage thing that's happened earlier in these not September number but it's you know to this point carrots to where we are and brought everyone together so that helps for sure but you mentioned that to very interested so that that braves cashman speech? What do you have any more details what what into that yeah you know it was it was ten years ago okay but but the one thing I'll say about cash is is he? He never puts anyone down right. It's it was uplifting was a motivational. It was saying guys here's where we are but here's where we should be right and and and I really believe at that moment the guys believed it and he talked about. He's not afraid to talk about players. He's very upfront very upfront and that's what makes them so amazing right but telling hey I brought the best talent in so we could win and that's what we went out to do right after you hear that everybody's sort of check themselves and and that moment you you recommit to each other and that's what happened you could tell that that message just went right to everyone's no one was not paying attention. Yeah okay here we go yeah because we knew we were better than we were playing and and it was like all right we kinda needed that little kick in the butt and you know listen you hear your managers voice almost every day. You hear your coaches voices almost every day but you don't hear your. GM GM very often right so that was that was a powerful moment for us very interesting. What was it like just that night winning the world series against the phillies and then into into the parade? You just described those that night those next few days well I always say the one image I have in my mind is Marta Shera. Who is a total pro? Throw down at one oak after we won the world series with two bottles of champagne goggles on his head going absolutely beserk so it was an amazing it was an amazing mazing ride but you know for me the moment that like as a kid I watched all those championships I watched ninety six and that will run so to now now be a part of it Chris and sitting literally a standing on the top deck you know with my hands on on on the Dugout fencing that was that was amazing L. standing right next to Andy Pettitte Andy Cans me they handed out these cameras that were like disposable cameras at the time and he's like hey do me a favor. Can you capture these moments for us so so I got so excited after that when that ground ball is hit that I ended up just drop in the cavern and it was like one of those things. Are you know a couple of days later came in you got that camera subdued but but it was you know when when what we we talk so much about winning winning and success that was it right that's it's where we peaked all of that work all of those meetings all of those trials and tribulations everything that everybody faced that year from the front office all the way down. That's the moment that was the moment that we were playing for see obviously you were a part of both stadiums yeah so what was the biggest difference moving into the new stadium winters of facilities because being strength condition coach all these shiny new toys. GotTa be a good thing for you. Yeah well listen. I I got a chance to renovate the old stadium weight room on design and how I wanted and then I actually got to be very involved in the whole process of designing the new that's training facility so so you know I I'd like to say I had made my mark in both places but but it was amazing the one thing that the players valued the most believe it or not was that there was much more restricted access to the media in the new stadium so they were able to kind of put their hair down more and the stadium was so spread out underneath that there were so many places to go and hide and even get some private time because as a player you have media around you. You have agents around you. You have financial guys around you have have player. Everyone's always around so it's very hard to find some peace and quiet for yourself I when you think back to different guys on that team is there anyone that stands out that just had weird workout kowt routine or a weird habit where like ask for help within your S- like what what are you doing man yeah every player's quirky you know like talk about Iraq right as a as an example most players. You don't WanNA listen to pump some pumped up music. kyw's listen rabs some guys. Will you know you know put it into pieces but he wanted to actually listen to Pat Bene- tar you know hit me with your best shot cranked up. He was super excited for so every guy's got his own weird routine Andy Pettitte on Game Day. We used to have to play the rocky soundtrack. Stop right there. These are the highest performing athletes fleets in the sport and this is what they do in order to get ready and get prepared to play so every player had their own quirks to them. Well what do you is there or anyone that stands out besides those two. You all remember just being like what Derek have anything crazy now he was. He was pretty pretty standard. Pretty Standard Wisher Swish you switch was when he was on a roll. He do a lot of training okay but as soon as he kind of went went cold sometimes he pulled back a little bit he was very on and off off nick. You know so so it's hard to say who had anything really quirky. There wasn't in terms of like Laura offer you know off the rails was there during spring you come in different mentality some guys. They're really grind some guys you know they have their roll cut off them ready and they can just relax or anyone who really like half asked like spring training like in terms of like getting ready yeah. You know it's interesting because a lot of times the veterans are the ones that actually do that but they don't do it to be lazy. They do it because 'cause they know how long the season is so. We always used to say you know you'll always have one or two spring training hall of famers. They're typically younger guys guys guys that get their first shot and they wanNA give it their all and you say wow this guy's amazing but oftentimes they don't make the big league club or if they do you there already backed down and four weeks. There's always that that sort of player but the great players they pace themselves and they've done it before so saying that we used to also also use is act like you've been there before act like you've done it before. Catch was with the veterans be like look this kid trying so hard going balls to the why you'd see you would see it every year. Yeah I roll and the biggest thing is like for me think about it. I'm in charge of conditioning these players you know a lot of these guys. They don't WanNa be running and you know you're not liked coach during spring training so what they would always try to get the young guys that want to run to the front of the pack and there's a guy like pushing pushing and pushing and pushing and pushing guys like hey man slow it down in front a little bit you know they they wanna be that pace car but we gotta keep facing check so you mentioned. CCC Scene Garner the only to carryovers from that Oh nineteen to nineteen what what you say about their workout routines and just what they were like listen. I always say this. You know any player that's played over ten years has figured it out. You know so you know Brett. Gardner is not a big weightlifter. When he takes his shirt off? You'd think he's unbelievable all right in terms of you know his physique and what he does but but you got also remember that these guys are hand selected best in the world you know so you're dealing with a hand selected population that comes with so many natural talents and so many natural tools so guy like Brett Gardner he works really hard in the cage he works really hard on his defense he works really hard on the mechanics of base running but not a big weightlifter right so hello and then with a guy like CCA you know there's always a lot of talk about his weight. That's always been the big thing. John's got bad knees because of his weight listen. He's a big guy. He's six five. He's he's a guy that carries more weight and carries more body fat than the average player and oftentimes when we would try to trim them down what would happen. Is You trim. I'm down some of his confidence and he felt like you were trimmed down his fastball at the same time so I always said when when you talk about a player in their body you gotta take a lot of things into consideration you gotta take in their body fat. You GotTa take in their weight. You gotta take in their circumference how big they actually are and you gotta take how they feel and you gotta take in their performance and it's a balance silence of that equation not just one because if guys playing well and feels good but he's overweight. What's it matter right now? Getting the wins twenty thirteen not the best year. You know things just didn't go our way. Do you think you were kind of made out to be like the scapegoat there. I really don't hold all will will or anything. No you know what what's what's interesting about baseball and anybody that spent some time in it as a coach or player my philosophy is this the day you start you flip an hourglass us and that's any coach by the way you turn and we don't know how fast the San move sometimes. It's very slow and other times it speeds up when there's a lot of injuries I know for for me as a strength coach especially in the soft tissue side Hamstring Groin lattes and things like that cavs I would start to be worried that that sand I and was speeding up whether it actually was or wasn't in my mind that was speeding up so I don't look at it as a scapegoat. I look at sports at the professional level as a business. That's right and you have to have a reason why something is not working and sometimes it ends up. Being you know somebody that you have to take out you. Eh SORTA fast forward now six years later. I like this twenty nineteen team could use you they. They got out something. What have you ever seen anything like this rash of injuries yeah? You know what here's the thing I I was actually talking to Sweeney murdy a couple of weeks ago about this and for me. I never you can't point the finger at one person right because again. We don't know exactly what these players are doing all the time but what would you have always look at his trends right so if you see a repetitive repetitive injury hamstring hamstring hamstring hamstring calf caffe caffe caffe Oblique Oblique Oblique Oblique you can at that point work backwards a little bit but here's the thing right right what I was used to say is this as a strength coach. We know the exact volume and the exact program that we are giving our players right does a hitting coach know how many swings a player takes every single day they don't. They don't know how much tea work you know. The players took how much soft toss cage. BP and live EP so until you can get all the facts right. We're in a data game now. We've got an all the data right all the analytics we don't know how many swings a players taking per week and that compounds per month and over the course of the season so you got these high performing athletes right they're stronger than ever ever they are more powerful than ever and now they're doing a lot of high velocity volume work right so you have all these leaks happening how much of these players swing winging taking batting practice every day I was used to say and I still say if you can't hit by September. You can't hit how much need right so there's not oftentimes times teams are pulling back and saying hey no today or no cage work right. That's an unmonitored activity same thing with throwing immune pads up. It's interesting though because they have really hammered didn't like more than any other team no relief pitcher goes three days in a row and like I guess aside from Delon one that really has held true any relief injuries. Let's just going through my head right now like that's interesting way of like rest like that. That has to play a part. Do you believe that like there's needs to be a certain amount of time taken off one hundred sixty two game season yeah. I think it's different for every player yeah right so the one question that I always ask players is how do you feel today and I'll ask him the same question an hour later in an hour later these guys I always say they're like Formula One cars in every lap they take around anything could happen. They don't feel the same at the end of the lap they do when they start the lap right. Sometimes it can go three laps and feel good. The fourth is the problem. How often would guys be honest with you and be okay? I I need a day. They don't feel great or was. It always like I'm good. I'm good to go to them yeah. Well you know in my era. Let me say this in the seventies and eighties guys couldn't couldn't say they need a they need a break. It wasn't it wasn't appropriate right or even the nineties you know but once cal ripken took a seat. I think guys started to you realize the importance of saying. Hey you know what if I played today. It's probably not a good idea because I'm going to get a setback so players became much more open much more vocal about what they needed in order to perform at a high level as the years went on and now it's the same thing players feel comfortable asking for a day. Do you think Jacoby Ellsbury is pushing it a little bit by saying he's like three years it. You know it's interesting man. Sometimes you don't know actually what's going on transaction really you know there may be some things going on between him and the front in office and him and his agent the front office yeah so so we never know all the details and that's that's the one thing I learned when I was just a fan right in high school. I I used to get so pissed about certain things how this guy's not playing sure why why's cashman doing this but when you get into business and you realize it again it is a real business. It's just the business of sports and the business baseball you start to realize why things happen. Why players sitting right now you know? There's things that we don't oh no. Maybe there's a trade being set up. Maybe the players hurt but they don't WanNA deal. You know there could be all sorts of hun is a lot of behind the scenes transactional work so you have your book. it habits of a champion. Nobody becomes a champion by accident. Tell us a little bit about the book it came out last September correct correct yeah last September and I just actually released a kids book too but but that book Abbott's of a champion I mean listen. I was fortunate to work next to some amazing easing people again from front office to players you have a chance to learn some pretty incredible lessons from some pretty incredible people that have to perform on a pretty large stage so what I wanted to do as a coach always reading books about Personal Development self-help Growth and coaching but I'd read a lot of these books and they were perfect perfect world situations. These weren't always written by people or writers that spent any time in the field in the trenches in the real life situations so I wanted wanted to take what I learned from my players what I teach my players and put it into a book that works more like a handbook as opposed to just a one time flip through read and that's what habits habits of champion is. It says nobody becomes a champion by accident. That's the subtitle because it's true if anyone ever knew the amount of work that players put in mentally really physically nutritionally from a rehabilitation standpoint they would be amazed they would tip their cap to these guys allow more than they do and I always say to you can't forget forget when you turn the TV off at eleven o'clock a lot of times. We're getting ready to head to the airport an hour later and jump on a flight possibly to Seattle possibly to Oakland so so there's a lot of variables here that that determine a player's ability and a player success. Can you give us an example of one of these lessons yeah so so you know one one lesson that I learned again. Go back to to Derrick jeeter. Buddy always says if somebody doesn't respect your time they don't respect you. So you know a guy like jeet. He would work out with me Monday. Wednesday Friday like clockwork three o'clock. That was his time slot. If he was running two minutes late he'd Kolya Elia right so so his big thing was about respect. That was a big big word for him because if somebody doesn't respect you they don't they don't actually really respect themselves right so that was a big that was a simple lesson on people right in the game baseball you got a lot of different heads a lot of different people around but it's so important award in order for a team to win. There has to be a level of respect for each other right so that's a very a very simple lesson that was in the book so Yeah No. It's definitely never be late for never be later or that's it. No more no more dinner I saw also the a-rod pretty much credited like all of his health and success us to you pretty much so so the thing with Al Alan I have developed a pretty good relationship through the years. Just you know he was one of those players. Usually when you're dealing with a player that's six foot four plus plus and over two hundred and thirty pounds their bodies require a lot of maintenance and a lot of work so the strength coach spends a lot of time without player so how how I mean we'd be stretching multiple times a day doing soft tissue work make it your hips or mobile and open so he could generate the power generate so yeah Alex and I have a really a great relationship seems like you built a lot of great relationships with a lot of great players and I'm sure they take care of you. What's the best gift you ever got from a player man outside side of some checks it? was you know it's going to sound you interesting to say this but my father was a guy. That's like a Jew. Make sure you get your pictures with these. These guys make sure but but that was never something that meant a lot to me. Lament the best gift was when they keep calling you like before we started the show. I said you nausea dinner two weeks ago with Andy Pettitte right you know I was talking to Alex yesterday. what what better gift than that right I mean ultimately these are these are superstars of the game right when you think of. MLB These are names that are going to be with that forever Marian Rivera being able to go to his house. You know have launch talk talk right so these are the gifts that keep on giving so check great the the second best gift next to the having obviously these relationships ships is is what I wear on my right hand which is world series ring to be able to win a championship with the core four and even have your name at the roster on the roster even though it's way at the bottom it's still on there so so that's cool you know what I mean. I'll always remember this and it was a magical moment and we'll see what happens this year. I hope they just stay more healthy. I I can't do this. Whole one guy comes off? The one guy goes back on the ideologist. I know I'm losing yeah. No it drives. I know it drives fans crazy but I'm telling on you more so than than driving you crazy those guys that are underneath that are at CHR- credited with keeping these guys healthy it drives is us crazy even more yeah we gotta get the food all away from somebody because someone has it's real it's real when there's so many injuries like that to the players ever like look at the strength and cushioning stuff to be like hey man. What are you doing you know I think what I'll say is? This most players have a really good relationship with the strength coach so they're not looking at bury you unless you're a real jerk work. They'll turn on you if you're a real jerk but but most of the time the strength guys are pretty cool guys that get what the players have to endure and what they have to go through so they're not looking at their now. Look into to bury a strength and think about it. It's a team so you're not looking to take down the guy that's trying his best to keep you healthy or trainers that are doing their best to keep you on the field. The players aren't gonNA AREN'T GONNA turn on u unless unless you turn on them you know for me. I'll I'll say this. I was always players coach so it was always you know you gotta keep a lot of things between the players that are meant to be between the players so player coaches that don't coach like that players tend to go out a little bit more yeah so you're you're working out still. You probably need some tips yeah so I was GONNA say. I passed like month two months. I've been trying to trying to get Rep China. Yeah yeah come back back in hurt my back so I wanNA know. What can you tell me some workout tips basically just wanted to do? I got some man tits trimmed down a little bit like built some biceps I steps and we get some broader shoulders some lattes in general like how much should I be working out how often ordinance diet for anyone like me out there. Well someone like you right. You're you're are naturally skinny guy so there's a lot of that sometimes because actually skinny goes act naturally skinny guy could tell just by looking at your wrist structure right you have you have have you do an analysis on feminist. We're going to judge a light risk vote so we so we look at those things right to see how much mass you can hold so you're not what you're never going to be. A high mass guy naturally okay so there are some places that you can go to accelerate your process but ultimately you're asking. Is We gotta get you enough what I say. If you want to build a five thousand square foot house you gotTA show up with enough would so most guys one thing they don't do is taken enough calories calories to build the House that they wanna built okay so if you get on a good strengthening routine right that's five to six days a week. Okay Okay and you're taking in in enough protein and you're taking in enough carbohydrate to drive the performance over time not a week not two weeks but over about eight to twelve weeks wchs you can start to see some good gains. The problem is most people they take in enough food today and a little bit tomorrow non-consistent yeah a little bit a lot a little bit a lot in Yoyo and then when you look at what they're eating. It's a lot times high fat food in high carbs and they're not taking in enough protein to build the body. I had so much protein at take about nine. I had some grilled chicken a ham sandwich and a proto protein shakes protein would you would you have for lunch Salad Alad okay. What's the Moussa Meg White's okay so so for you right? It's like you took in a majority of your protein probably at one meal yeah. We want to spread had that out over about six meals throughout the delk so it's so it's going to be hard because again. You're naturally a burner right. You know what I'm saying. I'm looking to get like oh needs to be like bulky. I just want to basically maybe more toned like what I do. have toning it up a little bit so is that if you're going to want more than tone women tone okay men men put on size and they get strong and they put on lean mass. I gotta eat more basically and full body workout. Every time I hit the gym well for you guys that are trying to get more size your body response when you put the muscle under tension so for you I would not do total body. I do more of a traditional bodybuilder split right so you're going to do like chest and tries back and buys and then you can do shoulders and legs together okay and then you're going to repeat that over and that's going to be your cycle so you're going to work six days a week Sundays. We'll be your off day and then you do it again. Put together a nice a nice plan to me. I hope I brought this up as a joke and now you're like and you're just for you. Well listen enough serious said if you if you wait trained properly you won't need the cardio when hear me hear me out. If you do any kind of cardio it should be more anaerobic sprint based fan base work because of too much cardio will go down even more all right so we gotta get some size is on you but we're not going to do that if we do too much cardio all right. Hey No. That's that's good look. There's I'm sure a lot of our listeners. Look pretty similar to me. I don't think that many bodybuilders so anyone listening to me that they want to. They want to tone up leaned. They don't want to tone up. They want to build WanNa build lean lean lean we call it lean bulk mass so along with great interview Tommy just changing exercise yeah yeah that we kept pretty top. Get into some detail fantastic denied. I thank you so much for coming in hope that God we actually start knocking her and we can win a world series but I appreciate come an awesome to hear your inside with everything. Thanks guys absolutely Dana Cavalieri. This is John Sterling. You've been listening

From the Bryant Heating and Cooling Studios at FM One, hundred, point three Kfi am and the set list is courtesy of timber. And Timber Tech Dot. com. The producer is trying to produce. Lavelli Neil the third cy you put that tweet out there from the K., Fan Account the wobble was coming up. So A gravy train down I'm like all they do is win find losing four zero the win bipolar. Well, here's the problem is. A lot of things happened during the pandemic Nardo is one of them gray is that lavelle punctuality has improved infinitely. From the area, but it's improved improved gotten better baby. Baby steps crawl before you walk. So I was. So I was so confident that I would just dial the necessary numbers I would get. Any what's going on I'm near Madison Right now. Made four stops already, I'm to cigars in I was anticipating that sort of Oh. Yeah. Small talk with Lavelli Neil the third know what out and I've got nothing but voicemails. I'm not even getting the benefit of being left on read via taxed with Lavelle at this stage might be sleeping. He might be snoring and sleeping in his ride on the side of the road hoping not to get lobotomize turned into a sex slave by somebody copyright noon to three. To respond to the sex portion of it.

So do we know he responded to your tax might he might be sleeping and snoring on the side of the road hoping to not get lobotomize done turned into some Wisconsin I'd sex life. So let's have. Let's have. A Modicum of respect. For the potential plight. That is wobble wobble. Lavelli. Neil, the third and then we recognize the fifteen is open. What else is open? The ten, thirty, five, thousand, three, five, most roussell got room for wobble as a matter of fact that would up I mean lavelle spent a lot of time arrest stops over the last five to ten years and we we knew this back when he had, he was forced to rent a car to drive down to cover the Kansas city royals. Yeah. Because the. Star Tribune was paying extra for Russo's flights and hotel stays. I'm concerned when he did when he did execute that rental that he opted to rent a nineteen seventy, eight van that was sands windows always loved that one I didn't understand what the purpose was behind that there was a queen size bed in the back now wear seem functional but charges Zipper mask claimed. that he left it, there were doing bourbon and cigar. Agenda the Zipper map guide by all they were doing a taste ask the blind taste test. Oh, now required a zipper map. All right. So the so sources tell nine to noon as we fade the music and we fired up and we say good morning. And burning. This is with apologies good morning. Yours truly stopped watching the Minnesota twins game a because it was born. Be Because they were losing four zero and see it looked like one of those bits even in sixty game piece. Yeah. So you got a one, sixty two and this happens all the time. But in the sixty I'm like I this this can happen anytime you got division rival chief adversary. For this ass yet, you're not hitting and you find a way to scratch out three or four victories against a team that legitimately matters the Pittsburgh pirates with all due respect have not mattered since. Kent. To call was closing. Games. Will we start was playing first base and Dave Parker was in right field. Can I get a witness? So nobody cares about the Pittsburgh Pirates, pirates and human nature would go. That could also be like wound up super excited. Here's the Indians took three or four. Derek shout needs to be on our bench luck Derek Best of luck with this ratty squad of the wife and kids are good. So we're going to. Stretch out a little bit Christmas, we're GonNa. We're GONNA grind out a three one because that's what we do. All been all of a sudden like I batter goes yard. And, then now that that's that's the baseball version of a slap in the face the purge but it didn't matter because then they just kept scratching runs and they're up like four zero I did not know the Minnesota twins found a way to get that money. Until you inform me, the Minnesota twins got that money. So I get covenant KLOPP's to that team Yeah. It's it's the beauty. It is with the Minnesota twins. A team that. is almost seeming seemingly destined to go far and get to the world series, and here's what I mean. Can I get a witness? Branded this, this is all part of yesterday but now now it's it's the Popovich San Antonio Spurs bit. We're going to run the same place with the majority of the same players. We're going to tweak it a little bit run the same system for fifteen years, and you ain't going to beat us and that's the end of the story. Yeah. So the twins they they. They're running the same bit but with little tweaks that are transpiring during the course of the live action and they're getting to the winner's circle basically every time eighty percent of the time what I mean is into the season we got Donaldson. That's wait Nelson Cruz is home run hitting mortality. And Rosario and Palumbo airy Adriana was playing shortly. And Arise Tennessee's guy this is up and down Rana's Bombo salting now. But there was little roll the ball out last night and I mean the picture was Derek Holland Okay now Derek Collin. Did Derek Holland is not making John Tudor, blush end of story, but you're not gonNA, have the same emotional and door competitive wherewithal every single minute of every single day of every single mom every single year against every single team in the business, we call it human nature. So you're going to get out there and do what you do and prescribe out victory. So they start the season liked hanging ten runs and and and and circumnavigating the base isn't taking the circuitous route to the winter circle with the bomb in the long hits but then the bat slow down a little bit and now they're in grinders with. CLEVELAND, they get Bieber to as twenty seven strikeouts in his first two games. They give be burden and the bombers got shut out holy cow shutting out the bombers is unbelievable. Yeah. But then you win three or four as we mentioned yesterday moving runners hitting balls the opposite way to get a guy over just just finding a way to recognize boys are the Bomba squad. We have elite Josh Donaldson, hitting, Second, and we love our lineup and we love our bullpen and we mostly love are starting pitching in back. Maybe we love all of our starting pitching and autos back is getting better on the horizon candidate witness. But then they don't hit. So then the bullpen and the the the mechanics and the technical nature of a seam heads central in the purge as to has to emerge and it has to rise to the top and a dead So now you get you get the weird Pittsburgh team in and. It's gay me it's Game Tan in the sixty piece, but you're going against a guy who knows all most of your hitters incredibly well in Derek Shelton. And he also is probably going to win the clubhouse. Remind these highly compensated professionals. I mean the Pittsburgh Al's haven't been fresh since. Since Omar, Moreno was running center field or since they erected the statue of Roberto Clemente and and Zane Smith was they're giving the giving the very, very memorable speech since Barry Bonds was hundred and fifty pounds lighter. But these players they are professionals and they work their way to the highest level. So. If only for a fleeting moment or if only for a game they can play about as well as anybody if they're motivated. So you got manager Derek. Shelton there has to be a get in here. I got one thing to say as we're the big dogs come out. Yeah and if you can't, if you can't roll with the big dogs, you better get off the porch at can win. A game in my old spot. Please thank you these I know them. Well, I know their smell and I want to beat them because they think they think we suck and I know the INS and outs about a pitch. These guys maybe we do sock and it was a freaking masterpiece by the old buckles. It was to drop that four on them and then all of a sudden they're like. I. WanNa get. Out of this bubble. I WANNA go shoot some dice with the Saint, Louis Cardinals and get bit. It's classic roll the ball out I want to go to the Strip club Atlanta with the Miami. Marlins. So I can get bit. Of Do to to be completely honest with you. sixth-inning they walk a bunch of guys and they small their way to victory. They did Bucko thanks, and so this this team it's you know it's it's the cute after an emotionally draining division series. We're going GONNA do to hear lavelle hopefully in route to Pittsburgh will will be with us at some point and we can break that down but you go to their standard was to here to their move on with our lives and ultimately waiting for the Russo taxed. The Russo taxed or the techie text yeah would be. Athletic guys are always on time. You pay three, ninety, nine, a month punctured. All, you're not paying three nine to three dollars ninety nine cents a month for Mike Sando and Johnny. Athletic. You're paying for punctuality. Here's the deal I'm GonNa give you eight dollars a month. So you're right five minutes early that absolutely the I just want heat check with the Yankees at some point can we talk about how cool that would be less do it next segment? Let's have some fun with it because I mean like if you're playing two out of three against the pinstripes immortality and the Gut Gary Call Got, Garrett Cole, they got Judge Ian home runs, they have Stanton Giancarlo about your ballot gotta me of Innovative eeg Nancy Pool is still barlow. It's The New York freaking Yankees and funny again, the target of which to shoot. But what if we? Met. Now, what if the identity change of the Minnesota twins showing weaken out Bombo you we can. We can out We can out technical and mechanical you by doing all of the right super special seam heads, central things on by the way when we're sleepwalking through a game against a bunch of als, we'll just drop four on you and small fashioned walk. That's when we do why? Because we're going to the world series and that's the end of the story, and then like the Yankees a probably still don't even know the twins exist. No. So like when it comes to a a mister manager Mr Mr Mr cashman whomever Mr. GM. What's the middle point between the twin cities and South Bronx because we need to meet their for a heat check a two out of three series. Maybe we stand to fancies house for that how would that work out that plus much more nine to noon today from the Brian Heating and cooling studios at FM. One hundred point three K. F. A. N.. It's me Paul Allen Eric Nordquist produces and courtesy of wixom jewelers, and about this time each and every hour during the core four. We have a cash giveaway. To put a grand in your hand, Hell Yeah. We do the fan in wixom jewelers indeed want to give you a shot to put a grand in your hand and win a thousand dollars with the national cash contest. This hour's keyword bills pay some bills potentially by texting bills to two hundred, two, hundred, thousand dollars text bills to two hundred, two, hundred national cash contests. Fan Of wixom jewelers put a grand in your hand text bills two, hundred, two, hundred, text message and data rates apply we'll be back nine. It'll be a one warm stanton and the swan high in the air to left center that Bose Theros far has gone. Way Back in the left centerfield seats Hey Stan Tony Overrun it's a two run dinger and Maggie's immediately take a to nothing lead. Part. Yankees Baseball W. F.. A. N.. It's John Sterling on the call it down it off. Here at this stage, of August, and the sixty. We're ten into it. We're ten games into it. Where were beating teams would Bomba's scratchy now victories coming from behind despite being down four zero to some ells, the Buck Os, and we run them down five, four Nelson Cruz walks off. So it's way too early to cast your gaze the way of baseball immortality. Team that that needs a high end identifiable as a starting pitcher. So of course, get Garrett all I mean that that's what they do even in the purge the Yankees probably found some way to make money. So now with with the New York. And where they are with one loss in the Minnesota twins over here with two losses and the fact that those are two of the three favorites in the seven zero two to win the world series. I think low key it behooves us to cast our gaze the way of the New York. Yankees just. So the sports snobbery covenant can locate. The this this is an August segment for an October blame. Is figure out the WHO, what, where, when, and why, what these pinstripes are doing because we know what we're doing and we know we start Tyler clipboard. We're GONNA get to solid we got five and fly with no runs allowed from Randy, dob neck. So we're hitting and sticking over here. Okay. But what about those pinstripes? What if these teams met right now? With. The pitchers all set up the right way everybody southie and the Gla shade playing field is even yeah. What have we met for a heat check with the new? York? Yankees? That bad boy work out. Let's go over to the heat check desk and here as Meco Lou Pinella these teams this is why despite the sprint and how cool this is that I want to get to the playoffs and see what it looks like because right now as we are sloughing our way into a walk off, win against Pittsburgh. They're out east mashing all over the red sox out there dealing with postponements by the phillies and things they're sweeping the orioles there absolutely destroying their division, which is exactly what we expect it. They're making sure they're players on off days do not want to take private planes to upper midwest casinos to shoot dice with the Saint Louis Cardinals. So everybody could can get bed and ruin the entire fan, of MLB, sixty piece for all of us. So the the key to this is enjoying the. Sprint enjoying the sixty games of fun the summer of love in an abbreviated fashion. But we have to look ahead to the Yankees. We have to look ahead to the fact that as we get digging into this and you see what Garrett Cole's doing with his seventeen and a half innings pitched what you're seeing from Aaron judge WHO's healthy Giancarlo stand the reason I played that highlight by the way to the segment you mentioned Garrett Cole, and we know whether they're banging trash cans cheating or not. And by the way, Orel, hershiser forgot to do this last week. Forgot share this with you last week it was in the series where Your Guy Joe Kelley went out of body started throwing heads well yeah, and then like Carlos Correa meet me right here because you're a freaking cheater and I'm GonNa, whip your up your but yeah then he gets the a games but like also at the next day. Okay. Jose Altuve as at the plate. Late in the game, some some relief pitcher for the dodgers strikes him out in the boxes like and we're going to head to the bottom of the Surg ahead to the top of the Vinnie and big blue's Lee I'm an oral just just Riley. To break is like paraphrasing Jose. It's a little different when you're guessing and you don't know, right? Yeah. That was awesome. It was unbelievable. Go only. Yeah. But oral is As a lot of players should be hard core like you know sacred nature of the game you probably thinks that. Charlie Hustle should never ever even be close to the game anymore and and all of that, and he's getting back at the world because when you grow up when you grow up as a slender young man in your first names oral I, think you probably got teased for about the first twenty, two percent of your life and I thirty years of your life. So now and then all of a sudden he. Started throwing a baseball and like having fifty five consecutive scoreless innings. Yeah. You might have the MLB record that by the way does but and then all of a sudden like I'm going to get back at everybody. Now because I'm moral Hershiser, you all teased me because my first name or role and is by the way it's our with me. So I'm GonNa Tease Jose altuve. Bay We can't beat the Yankees. I. Think back to that I think back to that series in late July. If we can't beat the Yankees this year, we will never beat the New York edges but this this is the this is whatever the curse is laid upon this franchise where ant thinks there's cars were an agenda. He does he talks about it all the time while tweeting pictures of delicious family meals courtesy of House Lepanto Yankees lost the second game of the year con nine to the routing Attis Garrett Cole was i. was mentioning I mean he's had three starts and he's gotten the victory and each dart he's three now. Yeah I mean it's scare a goal thing they might. Be Able to pitch him every day against any team in the postseason and never lose but Aaron Judge Right. Now playing out of his mind, Lemay Hugh might be the best hitter from an average standpoint. He's going to be in contention for the batting title each and every year, and then you have Giancarlo Stanton and it's non reports still parlow you can't stop it. You can't stop this lineup. So as good as the Minnesota twins look out and as much as they keep beating on some of these bad teams. Yeah. The heat check maybe it's in Cleveland Ohio is an opportunity to see if we've grown because we had that opportunity in late July last year. We got meatloaf by the Yankees and it was dramatic. You'll remember that the one game unbelievable games you're down snow hits the two run shot than Aaron Hicks takes the lead with a two run shot. Go ties it up. was there an unbelievable kepler catching centerfield or something in one of those games while in extras after they take the lead in the tenth Kepler is up with the bases loaded each ice maxwell and it was Aaron Hicks in left center that stole not only a game title double but potentially a bases clearing game winning walk off double good memory, and then you lose the finale there. Yeah and so that's what I'm looking for, and frankly I don't care if we lose two out of three again I want that vibe what I want that atmosphere you do care if we you mean in the regular regular season heat check and we garrick old I'm fine with that. Yes. Exactly. Because I need to see what that looks like I saw Randy Dob neck making his first start a Yankee. Stadium last year in the playoffs. Yeah. I didn't like what I saw from that situation. So we need that. Now we need to be a year better a year smarter. We need to get these bats going and do a heat check now because our record is going to be Gaudy as hell with some of these teams that we haven't played the reds yet we got three more against these awful Pittsburgh. Pirates were going to run away I believe we'll see it's early I believe we will ultimately run away and crossed the line earlier the normal in terms of wrapping up the central and getting an opportunity potentially to position ourselves for a home field advantage situation in the playoffs but the home field advantage didn't matter when you got guys doing stuff like this and here's Gleyber tour. I just like playing. John. A long drive to La that ball is is that is far bed has gone labor tors who had thirty eight last year. It's his first home run of the year, and now the Yankees trail two to one yankees to it's both by Laura Chores area. It's Glare Day. And like a good labor tauruses there. You can't beat that. Well, see that also gets the Commissioner Rob Man for Hook because when he when he surprised ups and Fedex planes are not flying over. Labor. Day like I thought it was Labor Day I thought it was Labor Day everyday. I didn't know Labor Day was a holiday. HOW COME THOSE SAMPLES DIDN'T GET TO UTAH NO teams complaint for four days. So Weird I was just listening to that that highlight John Sterling. By the way a blood issue that kept him out for four Yankees Games expected to be back fans day. Yes he cracked. Physically yeah he's got. He's actually just out of the hospital he's returning to call games they had. Apparently. They're Spanish play by play guy was in the mix in his name's Ricky Ricardo okay. which I thought is that from is that Lucille Ball Lucid Ricky Ricardo s Lucille ball okay. Lucille. Ball show Wa. So get rid. So so get well soon, John Sterling because we need you in the mix mortality statistically right now these two these two are absolutely at the wire they look like the two very best teams in the American League you're seeing everything struggling right now with the cheating Astros, I mean, that is a dark cloud hanging over. Their head right now, I need to see a heat check between the two teams I feel like there's baseball happening in other parts of the country, and we just don't get to be a part of it because of the segment in nature of the sixty game sprint, and until we actually see Garrett Cole v Burritos, what if it's Garrett Cole versus Richhill Berberia hasn't gotten away? Yeah. That's a problem we need. We Need Garrett Cole versus Kenton Majeida, and we need to hope the FREAKING AL is not caught up to my Asia by October. He's unhittable. and. I. Know Recently, it was Cleveland and and nobody was hitting in that. But you this this is age old handicapping fat. When you have a pitcher come from one leg to the other, it takes the other league a hot ticket to catch up to Maine man they ain't close right now with my Asia. So maybe we just put my eight on ice. And then get to the Yankee series and the American League still hasn't seen him and he just like twirls six wonderful innings two times and we win Bah twins when what if you do because the twins bullpen is so unstoppable can't you can't beat the twins bullpen right now Aaron judge has six home runs out of it and like ten games fourteen rbi tied with Nelson Cruz Mike Cruz at seven one game. Okay. Well, it's still counts all add up fast okay. No doubt account wins. Nelson cruises and bad. He just had things not a walk off last night. The do you do you do a bullpen bid against coal boost Geo Ursa Lur Sheila? Ursula think he's third base. My is holy cow Manica Mazur's up and down this thing now. The Yankees are the only team in major league baseball that are like, Oh hey, that's cute. You've got Josh. Donaldson Hidden Second Okay. And see what the Yankees because this is. This is you know it's like when things are normal and then the seam heads central, the ones who are really into it. You know they're like, well, you know the Yankees get this from yes. Network like the twins get this from sports north in. Tampa. The padres and it's it's a competitive imbalance here. I understand that but the Yankees with this money they get, they also are able to pay their like national and international scouts rat markedly more or more or markedly more. Other teams. So they're getting the Creme de la Creme of the scouts. So if the Venezuelan guy for the twins making, let's say a hundred grand the Yankees guy might make just a quarter piece. So like speaking of Venezuela when you when you think so so they are scouring the world to find the best prospects to keep the pinstripes of immortality rolling along, right? Yes. So when you think when you think of like countries, Continents Hispanic type places where a lot of baseball players come into Major League baseball first and foremost would be. The Dominican. The Dominican Republic Dominican Republic. So then after that there, Fernando Valenzuela was from Mexico you just mentioned Walea think that's where Johan Santana was. Yes. Well, this Geo Ursula Ursula. Yeah they found a baseball player from Columbia You know you find Pablo Escobar, Columbia you find poppies and you find. Steinbrenner ties knows you find John Jairo, Vasquez Velazquez and Columbia. You don't find a freaking third baseman who whose complimenting the pinstripes of immortality but they did they absolutely did so that So that's low key. Now thinking about October I think it'd be hooves you to find farmers Almanac figure out exactly what the weather looks like. October twenty twenty because that'll key when it comes to. The Bomba's Mike Florio PROFOOTBALLTALK DOT COM joins. Street Snow. Ball feast. In Mind Chevron outside rundown music store when. Florio. Own Top the Chris Michael What's going on. I Fall Mr Mike Mr Michael Florio profootballtalk dot COM NBC sports network and NBC's football night in America outside of the NFL but an involves the. NFL. But it's local and his kind of big and It's also available of pro football talk DOT COM Stud Golden Gophers Wide Receiver Rashad Bateman has opted out of the twenty twenty college football season. Is this a cliff shade domino that will start to trigger others to fall and and like what do you think of College Football Twenty twenty having games and good, morning. Good, morning Paul and thank you for only being three inflate today eventually late at this rate, we will be starting the spots at ten am cornfields time. That's fine. I'm used to it. I was surprised were Sean Bateman opted out at a time when the big ten is the last of the power five conscious to have made a decision and announce the decision about what it's going to do. This season decision may end up being moved if the powers that be in the big ten decided, they're not going to kill full season at all and that is it would have made more sense to not put that stake in the ground to not give evaluators something else to ask a bunch of questions about but then the other side that. Is Hey. Look if a guy's got concerns and he doesn't want to play this year so be it I'm not gonNA play this year and I'm making it now I'm going to take matters into my own hands if the big ten continues to drag its feet so I respect the decision to take a stand I don't know anything about the details. If they're family issues, there's personal health issues cause to be leery about it but some of the comments made from Caleb Farley the Virginia Tech cornerback who's one of the top draft prospect at any position. It's horrifying when we see the lack of. The kind of stringent protocols at the NFL is using. There isn't daily testing. Guys went off on vacation according to Farley fertile beach and came back and they weren't tested. Some of these programs are only testing guys who are symptomatic or who were in close contact with someone who is positive for the virus, and there's a lot of people who still have the virus who don't fall into. Those categories and they're passing the virus around. So I think it's good that players are taking matters into their own hands generally because volunteers says, no one was protecting them. Day has no apparent jurisdiction to shutdown college football season all they can do scrap the conference championship games. The conferences may schedule their own championship games at the NCAA does that it just really is a shame that there isn't. Someone who's in a position to stand up on behalf of the players and say, we want to be sure guys are protected and if they're not there out and then it becomes incumbent on those players and their families to be the ones who say it for them that we're out we are stepping aside we are not gonNA play and We'll see how many more do it but I. Be Surprised. If it continues I think we're surprised by how many NFL players have opted out, and the NFL players have a lot greater protection than the college players and that opt out deadline according to profootballtalk. Dot Com is Thursday and allows for chain circumstances more on that momentarily Odell Beckham Junior The season does not take place and he went public with that FOB. What's that all about? Well. They were common city made a couple of weeks ago. The Wall Street Journal with his belief on whether or not accents to play pro football independent. And the comments were made they were on the record they were published for the first time yesterday a lot of browns fans, WanNa. Shout down the significance of the comments because he showed up he's there hasn't opted out he reportedly opt out but look nice say. So somebody said until he stands at a podium via video conference after practice and retracts what he said he said what he said, and I could see guys choosing not to opt out choosing not to give up their salary but still having this giving about whether or not the season should go forward. You know some I've seen I WANNA be the one that puts his hand. In the and says, I'm not playing some guys may not want to abandon their teammates, but they may secretly hope that they don't have to make that decision that the season gets scrapped before they'd ever have to come to that conclusion. So I agree with some of the points he made and I wonder whether or not there's been enough focus by the NFL on the human. Realities. If this pandemic, you know for example, I believe there should be additional windows to opt out after players get a chance to see what it feels like to go out and practice on allow them to see what it feels like after playing in a game against an opponent whose players may be positive and you don't know because you haven't been around those guys do you. Feel like you're comfortable and confident going forward under the circumstances I. Wish there was more flexibility when it comes to opt out, I wish there was an opportunity to come back. If you decide after monitoring everything that your concerns have been satisfied I, I just feel like the NFL wants to put that issue to bed once and for all for everyone without letting players make human. And I think that contributes to some of the things Odell Beckham. Junior said that this is all about shaking the money. It's not about necessarily take the best possible care players with CJ Moseley the STUDT linebacker for the jets about the head into a second year. Okay. Jamal Adams. GETS TRADED TO SEATTLE CJ Moseley was their best defensive player ops out when when I read the initial story. And I, I didn't I purposely for the last day and change have not followed up on it. Just simply because I. wanted to hear the way you explain it because I like that and here's the deal. So jets linebacker CJ Moseley is opted out by the way in March you got a ten million dollar bonus from the jets and and that that is his I mean he doesn't give that back with the opt out and are there particular reasons he has opted because I didn't see them and then like when you get that ten million peace and and everything gets put on pause how's that whole thing work out? Everything, it's on pause for a year. It's that simple. Your contract gets put on hold for an entire year. There are certain payments that won't count against this year's cap some do but your contract is put on hold for a year and if he shows up next year and if he complies with his contract, he won't be in fault for any money he's previously earned or received and and that'll. Be That and yeah, he he gets that payment but he won't get that payment next year he won't get any roster bonus he would be do next year everything from twenty twenty one gets pushed into twenty twenty two and there's so many guys who have opted out some guys have cited family reasons for health reasons or whatever. Like Michael Pierce. The Vikings nose tackle with asthma from my perspective it's irrelevant. To me whether or not a guy has a health reason or a family reason to do it. If a guy's not comfortable, he's making the decision to not play this year, which has to be an excruciating decision. You're giving up your career been up your money you're abandoning your teammates. You're going to feel like that at some level. This is a tough thing to do you're setting yourself up to. Criticism for a bunch of the mouth breeders on social media that are GONNA, call you out because you're not going to be available for the fantasy team favorite team. This is a tough decision for these guys to make. So if a guy had gotten to the point where he's walking away, it really doesn't matter to me why he is I. Don't mean that in an insensitive I don't care. I got. He's respect conclusion and that's a big deal Mike Florio PROFOOTBALLTALK DOT COM preeminent position related website in the universe about baseball teams teams outside of the bubble. They're getting they're getting back like you know these are assuming these reports are right Miami marlins messing around in Atlanta it with an exhibition series hotel bars and stuff they got bit. You know now now seasons or messed up for several teams. Now, New York Post is like Saint Louis Cardinals were up, you're playing the twins and they went to an upper midwest casino like mingling with people that like putting the dice in their mouth I'm just kidding I don't know what it takes to go somewhere like that and get bit but they did it does baseball not at least have a many bubble for road teams. Or here's what it takes to get bit. You get any type of confronts face without fluey state of the art ventilation, and you're potentially going to be getting the droplets from other people in your nose and in your eyes, and that's what is going to kick you bit period and GonNa tell us banking on open air football not resulting in transmissions of the. Virus because of the fact, there's not a confined space, but that's how you get yourself in trouble and hopefully the NFL looks at this and said, here's how we need to button up here. The examples we can point to and baseball presumably has learn from it. They look look around I mean just because somebody's a pro athlete doesn't mean they're not stupid, right I would assume that a professional baseball team football team basketball team hockey team soccer team is a cross section of society and right now you take a cross section society and you have people who are taking it seriously you have people who aren't taking it seriously you have people who are overly cautious, and then you have people at the other end of the spectrum just freaking stupid and you're GonNa have that on a baseball team or a football team or a basketball team in. The challenge is to identify the ones who are stupid and either get them off the team or ensure that they do something that will reduce the possibility, bring the virus into the roster and let me tell you something. Here's what I am going to predict. I haven't written this yet we talked about it earlier today on PFC OT, which is the little thing that we do after we go off the air for any change circumstances or information we may have picked up during the show. This sequestration that Sean Payton and the saints are doing to King wrote about it yesterday where the teams in a hotel. In The League says that's not mandatory. It's volunteer. Okay. Well, what's to stop every team or at least the teams that are the most the most serious about preventing the virus from ripping through their facilities? What's to stop those teams from having a voluntary setup all season long? Where we're all staying in a hotel coaching staff, we're choosing to stay in a hotel executives wearing a hotel team leaders. We're hotel how how're you going to say? No. To. Be With Your family are you going to be the one? How are you going to be on? Who shows up every day for work and everyone else has just fell over on a bus from the hotel and you're the one potentially brought the virus in from the outside. So I predict teams are going to do that I think this training camping is kind of a trial balloon and we'll see what kind of blowback there is but you know voluntary workouts every year April May, and June voluntary are they everybody shows up I? Think these Bubbles are going to set up the teams that really weren't compete that really WANNA to keep those storms in play it really want to have a chance to win the Super Bowl I. Think they're going to voluntarily choose to live in a hotel all season long a last one kickers, punters specifically kickers that they need to be quarantined bubble up light bubbled up like Thursday for a Sunday game enemy you can't lose your kicker day of the game. I think that the players generally are going to sort of retreat to a bubble on Fridays but you're right you you. You need to have a ticker on the practice squad. You need to have somebody who can ideally what you want, how the practice, what is somebody who can kick or punt for you on a moment's notice and the way that they've set this up. There is free allocation of players from the practice squad up until ninety minutes before kick-off. So if find out that you guys positive. Before kickoff by at least ninety minutes and he's kicker you gotta got on the practice squad you elevate him. It also is going to create extra value for guys who can do both if you have a kicking competition and it's close. And one of the guys can also a punt. And the other guy can't or if you've got. And it's close and one guy can can kick field goals and extra points and the other one can't that may be the difference between getting a job this year not getting job excellent work. Thank you have a good way. I might Florio profootballtalk dot com it is P. F. T. Rousseau radio coming up around the Corner Wild in action. Again, this evening one zero on Vancouver in that playoff series less chat that and some puck around. Fan. Soft and warm the quiet storm. into. Russo radio time. It is now post time for Russo radio. Rousseau radio you doing. All right. Yeah I am I can't wait to see this band again in live I think Banjo Dave and symonette or actually playing a couple duo shows out in the West in the next couple days week and I was actually Kinda on my APP. My I wonder if I can make it to a show and then come back for a game you have to wait the the team is in the bubble i. know you ve virtually you're doing everything right? The athletic athletic virtually everything from anywhere boom. That's what I'm saying Aso just go buster about saloon panel old wide their. First. Their first show I think he's on the six which while again that night. So I'll just wait. I'll I'll be able to see him here hopefully next couple trampled by turtles don't leave home without them. It's I I'm I'm here low key to assist you a little bit because I know you internalize. It's bugging you. You're not in the bubble I know it is. You're saying it's not I know it is nobody's in the bubble though what do you mean Star Tribune and Imbo not in the bubble is good point inside of the they're the list just outside of the bum making bubbalicious. So So you so covering it and handling it tweeting it and doing everything now. Business as usual from back here for you. Yeah I mean it's still much more difficult like the the the one thing that really does bug me about the whole thing is that we can't get any practice updates. So the wilder the wild or the NHL is doing something pretty shady. They're having availability on practice before practice. So you can't you know stuff you say ain't nobody wants. But it's easy that you could say there's nobody I mean there's no media cover practice even the strip that's they're spending a fortune to be. There are not a lot of cover practice at least for now. Now, maybe maybe if things get, you know it's teams I. Think the one thing the league is doing is that they're just saying there's so many you know there's Not a ton of media up there that say there's twenty people that as teams get eliminated and there's less and less of those people that then they could say to say are you could cover practice such a thing. Yeah right now you can't. So they're doing availability before. So if you say Hey who starting gold today he's like I'm telling them after practice. You know it's like right And and you don't get lines now. So like none of the conducts writers no I mean, and that's what's bothering me about that whole thing is because still you know the NHL who's been one of the most transparent leagues forever, we can always go to practice is that media could see everything that's going on and report what's going on and they're using the pandemic as a reason why we can't cover these practices and things like that but it's still to me shouldn't be in contrast. To keeping news that normally would be. Able to be reported a secret and nowadays playoffs which are very much secretive all the time they've become a complete you know independent media in there, and obviously the NHL DOT COM writers aren't going to report this team. You know there are some teams out there that are tweeting outlines everyday practice on the wild non of them in the are not one of them honestly, if that is a sacrifice in the purge that that is being made. Or has to be made for whatever the reason I mean. We kind of we kinda got let that one go regardless to ask to answer your original question. It's it's much more difficult doing everything by Zoom too because you get you know you don't after a win like the other night where you WanNa talk to ten people you only get the four you don't get any follow ups off five minutes interviews. It's much more difficult to bring. Wild fans into a playoff series like this virtual and my biggest concern is like, Hey, I get. We're GONNA pandemic. My biggest concern is what's going to happen at the beginning of the twenty twenty one season or you're gonNa have to especially with what you're seeing going on with baseball yeah. It almost feels like the NHL's gotTa be modeling now secretly, Yeah. Starting next season bringing four teams to four bubbles twelve to exceed me thirty one teams to four bubbles. Yeah and starting next season in that capacity and I bet you. It's happening at Russo hockey via twitter. He is Michael Russo a staple with nine to noon and bumper to bumper with Barreiro rights for the athletic I subscribe you should too without market the Marcus Felino diary which I'm which I've told you publicly and privately love you've gone through three of the most. Recent was a matt does speech and final prep for the Knox. Now, with Felino, a win is part for because I'm calling him tomorrow Brooke Sweet and you'll talk about the fight right I mean and and and why I bring that up is like Felino tough guy and he's GonNa want to energize things or stick up for another guy who might be getting picked on whatever. But in all these games that I'm watching and I'm not you know because a radio or Whatever I'm not beginning eleven am hurricanes rangers and going all the way to the end with with mcdavid news team hanging six on the blackhawks. But with a fair amount I've watched I'm not seeing any fights. Yeah. It there and and so now we're thinking no fans a full F. something I read in the athletic by you with Ryan Carter where Carter was like a when Felino, goes to that big hit on somebody you are charged by the fans. Yeah. Happens. That charge obviously has gone now the hits, the hits are still there but the fights are basically non-existent, right? Yeah. There was just in Williams, the the think oldest player in the playoffs. He he fought the other night of the other day for Carolina right off the and I. think that's what enticed. Yeah. In fact I don't it's not what I think. It's definitely what enticed marcus to do what he didn't in game one. Yeah. he said it in the. Diary. He literally in the diary broadcast what he was going to do in that game, it was hilarious right and. The only reason why I didn't call yesterday to diarrheas because he was such a big part of the game story and we got him in the Post Game Zoom. But the reason he did it was not because he was angry Michael Furlan it was too. He said in that tyree that the team that dips toes into this playoff series be the team that's outside the bubble in a week. Yeah and we need to know right away especially after he watched that Carolina Ranger's game one I love that you have to initiate. You have to be the enforcer you have to fight you have to hit we have to be as bench. That this is the playoffs right off the hot. We're no longer playing our cells. We're not an exhibition game. This is the postseason, and so whatever you think markets, Leonard decided to drop the gloves there. That was the purpose of him doing that was to right in front of the bench. We we're this is no longer fake stuff you're actually in a postseason and he did. It and and obviously then the wild draw power play the score an early goal three seconds into that Perot by Fiala and the wild. We're actually all over him and you're right I. mean the hitting was what I was most surprised by throughout this postseason with all twenty four teams playing is how physical is even right out fans but Ryan Hartman yesterday yeah, almost launched. Kristan of into outer space it was an unbelievable hit and he was doing it all night and four check the heck out of but but take it a step farther and again I'm peppering you with this because you have a trained I and you're watching markedly more than all of us it's even when there's a little scrap in front of the goaltender, they can't find the puck and they're they're Jocelyn. And then stave locker room ever covers. You usually get those boom, those crosschecks boom goalie with his stick or whatever. The the aggressive post whistle crosschecks where it might you know Brouhaha might start. You're not getting much of that either. Yeah. Yeah. But you know what I watched like the watch game one of that Edmonson Chicago series and I saw Mike, Smith taking his paddle and trying to cross check off Yes slash across the Achilles. I saw that you're seeing stuff like that. It's got to be weird. But I will say the one thing that I've been fascinating by even with the music turned up to end the five second delay that we're hearing. That, we're seeing these games on by watching it on TV. According to reporters that are in the Iran and traumas trance my colleague from Vancouver did an incredible story where he everything he heard in the rank he wrote from the Chicago Edmonton Gaming Ray and it was unbelievable the stuff he was hearing but you're hearing it even watching these games stuff that we never get to here. Yeah. Like listen to the wild bench and how loud it yeah. Listen to Earth Stall Eric Stall every time you are watching awhile while. During this playoffs and you're hearing somebody like wooing from the bench and stuff. Yeah I could tell with my my ear knowing who the that, that is Eric Thal real and you never like that stuff that we don't get to hear often. So That's pretty neat that here a thirty five year old veteran that's been in the sleep forever has the Stanley Cup still has that love of the game and you're an but then I mean talking and Sarah McLaughlin. Zoom the other day because against she's hearing stuff in the building that we're not able to hear because the five second delay that the NHL is making sure to get rid of but she she said the talking back and forth between Vancouver and Minnesota was was you know playoff mentality? Screaming each other and yeah and look they are a team it. So easily readable I mean they've got some Anton. Roussell is just a donkey. Yelling like, Hey, hey, Russo, when's your next shift you? To play the game. All that type of stuff and so there it's postseason hockey only. So what I'm saying is that the players are they might have no fans in there and this might be super odd for them. Yeah. But it doesn't take long to develop a hate for your opponent in the postseason wild Vancouver this evening on Kebe n somewhere around nine forty, nine, forty, five, curtain raid. So now and I'll be on with with Maleski and Micheletti at eight thirty primer primer. So now with with with tonight's game and then like. CHICAGO. CHICAGO SLIGHT UNDERDOG TO EDMONTON ROLES IN THEIR GETS down one zero hangs foreign like eight seconds interrupt for one and it looked like the Chicago team we discussed on Friday but now, Edmonton in kind of a must win situation takes care of it with mcdavid. Now it's one one. So do same thing with Vancouver tonight I wonder because now what I'm getting at here is for the opportunity to get out of these bubbles get back to what your normal is with your family, your friends, Your Life Your supermarket, your race track, your whatever. Teams that get down to zero in these bubbles I mean I don't know what the fightbacks going to be in game number three when they can smell the outside well especially when it's the best five. Yeah. So. Yeah this is you know this is the first best to fives in the NHL and something years and. I've never covered one in and it just changes the dynamic obviously if you're up to on series They've gotta do a better job Vancouver against Minnesota. You know it was just perfect Rogaine. For Minnesota, the other night you get the, you got the early lead. You are impeccable defensively spent a lot of time in the offensive zone stay lock comes up with huge saves there in the second period then you get the second goal, and now it is the prototypical playoff game where the coach role for lines plays defense twenty, twenty minutes each when we ever covered an ex a postseason game by the Minnesota Wild, we're Ryan Suj- Twenty, two, twenty, three minutes right and that's the perfect game tonight in Vancouver gets. The early lead, it's going to change the way the Dean Henderson has to coach. I've gotTA think Travis screen coach of the Vancouver canucks massage therapist for the Minnesota Wild is going to have to make a lot of adjustments I. Think he's GonNa WanNa, get faster in the lineup so I could see him taking maybe brandon solder Michael Furlan out throwing in shape for Tannin or or McEwen. But the other thing he's got to do is he's gotta get better matchups especially being the quote home team again tonight against the wild now it's very difficult to get good matchup against the while because when. You have Meka Koivu was your fourth line centers the normally the you what you WANNA. Do you take your top line and throw get them shifts against the the fourth one? You have a fourth line with Ryan Hartman and Meka clothing you're not getting the edge there dot Hartman playoff experience to and exactly, and and even your third line. You'd Marcus Felino one of the best defensive forwards in the NHL and you have Zuccarello is a savvy veteran and and go out there, and then again you're I mean Ericson et Cetera in your Parisi line and they just absolutely envelopes the Horvat Line they were They were just missing an and the only one on that line that you ever saw was was Professor Botanic Pearson's terrible Horvat did nothing and then the top line you're going against all and Koivu A. so the one thing that I think the travis have to figure out a way to do is get those top six out against Susan and hunt because really the only big time mismatch that you can get in my opinion against Minnesota. So you know if you Bob Woods, the assistant coach of the wow. The changes the defense and he strung out every other shift suitor in spurgeon and Dumbo and protein. Especially, you know it was clear that woods wanted to get brody in Dumbo out against the Pederson JT Miller line. You're you. If you're travis, you gotTa, you gotTa take advantage of those offensive zone shifts when potentially can get that mismatching the one thing that Bob which didn't the never put Suzie and haunt out in defensive zone to start a a a a shift that was that was it was great coaching by the wild. It's Michael Russo from the athletic and the Athletic Dot Com at Russo hockey via twitter more. On the wild and previewing this evening and also things transpiring in the national. Hockey League.

Capri soft post to be awesome. They're not connor mcdavid blackhawks looked like a men's REC league team against him yesterday a Hattrick Carolina's Andre Chevette CNA cloth Hattie as well and since we have victory I guess we're cool. Then Winnipeg one without line a and shy fleet Zuqar scored for the Penguins and they end up with the haves and tonight of course, wild and canucks game to nine forty five take two naps in advance of puck drop. Now back to nine to noon and Rousseau Radio those are bubble bits courtesy of nine to noon in with me. Now is Michael Russo. He's our bubble buddy and it's ten twenty four welcome back to the fan. We have found Lavelli Neil the third you'll be joining twenty, twenty, five shocker he was missing Well, he's driving to Pittsburgh to cover that series. It's it's pedestrian phones don't work on the highway. Well, let's see but the the. Yes they do and with wobble we got no idea what what transpires when he's later he doesn't show, but he was in Wisconsin when we last corresponded with him so I wanted to make sure he didn't get a flat tire and then some heathen to his phone lobotomize demined turned him into a sex slave. So before I went down the road. Wobble with Al we doing here why are what the punctuality the athletic guys are always on time? Exactly. Eight dollars a month for the athletic, the extra four. So they're on John that's what ties us our alarm clubs. So I'm just honestly, I'm just hoping that he hasn't been lab I remember once I was. I think northe- you're producing remember. Filling for. And Lavelle was late to the studio because of construction. and. Construction. So he started doing the he started. This is hilarious. He started doing the interview with me by phone and I didn't know exam exactly where he was and we're halfway into the first segment of the interview and he walks into the studio on his cell phone sits down and turns on the microphone to Continue Talking Watch. Yeah. It was hilarious. There's a different thing. It's a different adventure. You know you watch like adventure movies really James Bond he owns an interesting life Lavelli Neil. A. Significant adventure, laden lifestyle that most could never understand this morning apparently there was some sort of you plug your phone into the charger, but the base isn't necessarily plugged in. Okay. Should've jiggled core did not phone dead woke up late here we are all being Wisconsin, when you call me around ten James. Bond comparison sometimes wobbles mind. Why is he driving Pittsburgh? Sometimes wobbles mind is both shaken and stirred I. Always love that one would have to quarantine. If he flew on a plane I got here protocol with baseball. Major League Baseball so protocol. Motoko Laden. You know they don't worry about the writers but not the player on bars and boming that's typical and the Saint Louis Cardinals truly were like added Casino in the upper. Midwest doing whatever they were doing and they got bit I mean I. Okay. It's whatever till one shot you feel it would be being seven feet from people without a mask. Everything we've always hurt whatever let's say it's a fifty thousand, one piece I mean what? What what are they doing the cartridge they putting the dice in their mouth before they shoot are they are they like as somebody licking? China they were claiming that they that they were exposed to the virus. I WANNA casinos here in Minnesota No. No. They're not claiming that now now the Roussos of Major League Baseball in the NY post are getting their sneak attack on and they're digging, and like the report is the cardinals were airplane the twins they went to an upper mid West Casino and got bit and so now that's going to slow things down for them or for other teams a just quickly The Minnesota State High School League M. S. H. S. l. has a board of directors meeting right now just saw this on twitter and you know for parents with kids who are wondering. If their kids are going to have sporting events beginning in the fall when school resumes, that's being that part of that is being handled right now by the board of directors, it's item h return to participation so. That interest you keep your ears Matt throughout the course of the day I was driving around yesterday. was partly round four or five o'clock around stillwater Dullard white bear, Lake area. I could not believe how many I mean not I'm not saying that she never played sports again but I couldn't believe how many literally or whether it was little baseball games soccer games going on with just kids everywhere parents nobody's at all social distancing wearing masks anything. I passes one baseball field whereas a bunch of kids playing probably. Three or four times yesterday during this, and I could not believe that a the amount of people not that were just sandwich together watching these games get me give me slash US slash the world they've missed it or if there even is one anything new with correal caprice off. So this isn't this is. Typical. He was supposed to have his meeting at the consulate in Moscow yesterday was pushed to Wednesday. The reason why that's a big deal is the way I understand if they WANNA fly into. Edmonton. Through New York. There's only one flight a week on Tuesdays to JFK. Now, they'd have to get him to this is because because now it's Wednesday you gotta you might have to figure out a new way to get them to Edmonton. Receive is gone through a believed JFK. Yeah and the hope was that he would get his work visa yesterday was growl because the deal is that the wild WanNa get him to. Edmonton. But they want to get him back to Minnesota with him Oh and right now I'm you know he let go Dan Millstein didn't hire him. This is really incumbent on the agent to get the this all taken care of and Milstein who has has a design Russians is Russian. He somehow got Sarokin and Romanov two of his client said didn't fire him. He somehow got them here. Got To work visas expedited. Got It. Done. Had them over here? Had them quarantine already practicing with routine where somehow something got didn't get done here with caprice off and again, the way that Milstein has explained to me is at its it's the agent takes control the so it sounds like You know something just didn't get done properly. So is it just like caprice off and his dad like knocking on the Kremlin like, Hey, can I get my visa and come to new? York I mean the other option is go to Toronto and then I think and then get to go the consulate there. Yeah but he's doing it in. Moscow. But yeah, I, mean this is not I think the way the wild wanted it again when the wild always knew he was going to be able to play but but billy Garin his hope was to get him on a plane be part. Of Training Camp here now with the team to Edmonton be around the team and that's the one thing when I talked to flee knows how much fun they're having a group and it caprice off his missing out on all this ability to acclimate to the new staff, his teammates for next season and so what billy Garin hope to accomplish by by for lack of a better term getting something for burning the first year of the deal, which is going to cost franchise about five million dollars next summer probably You know he's not getting that right now. So now if the wild going. Super playoff run. They're gonNA get something if they can get him to Edmund Tim the problem now is if he gets his work visa tomorrow and really can't come till next Tuesday who knows how long the wild and it'd be you know. It just and he's got to satisfy a seven day quarantine. Once he gets Edmonson. Yeah. It doesn't. It just doesn't make sense to bring him at this point in my Bill Garin the general manager replaced Paul Fenton this popped up out of nowhere yesterday perjure related radio at no idea. What happened did do do you feel Paul Fenton's work here the work the actual mechanics of the work not the working with people getting along with people just whatever do you feel is work was underrated well in a year later, we're starting to see the things that he was trying to do and and it's clearly I mean Kevin Fiala turn into a Stud Ryan heartens playing well, there are some things. that he his drafts, his two drafts that he was the GM for with the exception of the first round pick two years ago I'm those pick kids are all coming into our all look like they not all but most of them look like they're going to be good players and three or four look like absolute home runs you know holding off a boldy Beckmann these these look like they're going to be good players but you know Hartman and Fiala to me of the two biggest ones There have been some stakes like all GM's make a pattern I would say is one Zuccarello that contracts can kill the team well, the NITA rider trade. Trade was how do you do think the coil do not? Oh, was a wild win a push or a loss or as. I think coil probably achieved what he could achieve this team I I like to not all where what it didn't make sense and this is again another thing where I just think that sometimes Paul is just acting on instinct rather than pre-planning things is that when you look at Ryan Tomato. The acquisition made no sense because they were gonNA already have to trade like we just saw Jason Zucker another player to make room for caprice off you just added. Fiala and now you're just now all of a sudden you're adding do not oh, they're never going to be a fit for tonight on and now this poor kid that should be in atop a better role on team is just stuck in. The fourth line rule and frankly would be out of the lineup if caprice off was allowed to play right now. So the he essentially through Charlie coyle away in a trade for a player that was just didn't look like he was going to ever be able to fit correctly in this lineup with remember then he goes and ads Zuccarello which again pushes D'Amato your down the lineup. So it. Can I ask what Zuccarello does for this team, but I see him out there I just don't see him involved in things that relate to ascertain for the team He has not been good and and I mean on the power play the other night not very good I thought overall five and and in his own zone he was pretty good. The other night but they they definitely need more from him as if he's going to be on the power play, he's got to produce in other good forwards on this team D'Amato. Mikko Koivu. Who has the most power play points in history of his team that aren't getting on the ice because they feel like they're they've almost four feet Zuccarello onto the. Hey Russo without him being all the rage. What do you think Alex is role is here moving forward the question I think it gives them more freedom if Alex is going to continue to play this way to bring cannon slowly whether you put them in the minors. Next year, you have him on the team dual role with the guy like Alex Taylor who is you know Grab Andre. Great contract, but also person drugs. Awful. Wait for the team and you can't Redo it. Great it's great for the team. It's not great for teasing between he and I you guys at this point like if he had a better contract, you'd be able to buy such great horses on parents is some of the. Things, right. About a pay, cut her a furlough and I'll come right back to that contract exactly league minimum. Yes. So They can't change can't rip up contracts. I know the poor guy Like the type of guy that. Can. Rip. Up The contract and and and also not getting a paycheck right now right You know in the playoffs you're not getting paid. We'll get playoff bonus money but so we can. Bring him in here. But the biggest to me, the bigger questions, what are they going to do with dooby? Yeah you know. Do you want to I mean essentially I don't think you're able to train them. So you you buy amount or do you come back next season with do nick and state Dean Everson's approach to not letting stay locked slash Dubrovnik know who was playing until day of game. Yeah and and either into during or after the skates crazy I love it I've they're there and you and I both are close with Blue Bruce Boudreau as friends Nandana NOCCO arts not you know media coach announcer coach. Water respect for Bruce and I'm not doing an apples oranges here just saying from the time I read in your story him without the Kidde Addison the diminutive defenceman on on the bad pinch, and then he's like down the bench of the tree scrimmage Addison Yeah what was the read their The read was I completely bleeped it and I won't do it again. Okay. Kerry on from that moment I'm like Whoa, that is. Not. Only a way to have people be how to handle some of these knucklehead kids who think everything lickety-split but now we get to the Dubrovnik stay lock thing and he I mean you know I mean of course you know he held that thing until the last second in terms of letting stay lock end or Dube Nick know who was why and it was all to make sure that we didn't find out and and and I mean it's it's pretty interesting because you would think just for the peace of mind of the goal, you'd want to know the night before from starting. Do. I. Have that extra wine with dinner or do I not but you know alice soul even keeled. It's just it's really quite remarkable sometimes. and. Same thing with doom nick like. These two guys if the PR people didn't stop them, they would talk to us for hours in the morning and I'm on a game. Day. It's it's very unheard of for goaltender. Got Martin Brodeur used to be like that but there's certainly I just didn't WanNa talk on game days of your goaltender and. And obviously, it didn't hurt stay lock sat preparation not knowing until the day of through last one through the through the purge during during this, the the whole perch, not the thick of it. But like when they knew Edmonton's GonNa. Happen Okay Boys Getting Ready for training like that through Alex I met Ryan Hartman and we were talking about horses and stuff like that he's. A member of the Captain Call Governor I, mean he may be fourth line guy who was secondary guy with canine sharp key whole thing That is a cool cat. Yeah. Who has seen a lot done a lot any shift, my story today on him yes right. So I talked to his dad yesterday in Denver about what it's like to watch his son just great havoc. It's hilarious. He's. His Dad talks about how like their household like I'm like how do you raise an agitator like that to me is fascinating right because same thing when you talk to Ryan Hartman Cool is you know what not a mean guy but you put them on the ice and you WanNa Spearman the stomach the way that it happened the other night and I'm like, how do you raise an agitator goes well, if in our household if you're walking in front of us like as I'm watching TV, you probably get tripped yeah you're probably getting wrestled. Like he's like we're relentless in our household and it's probably filtered onto you know. Craig Hartman said that if you watch when Ryan gives that really like. That smile to an opponent that makes you want to put your fister face because. That's what his mom does. You know like like stuff like that. It's the same thing. So Ryan. Is a playoff player he acts and looks the part. Hits fights can kill penalties can make you, WanNa kill him while he's standing on the bench looking at you. And he's got skill I. Mean this is a first round pick doesn't somebody any and he's only twenty five. So. You know I give another another good acquisition dean. Henderson. Coached against him a lot in the minors and Paul Fenton was part of that national contingent that acquired him for a pretty hefty price. For First. Round pick in a prospect a couple of years ago, and so he had a lot of belief that this guy would be able to make an impact in the playoffs and so far one game in which great job by.

I was worried you were getting lobotomize D-. One. Harassment, milk carriers and taxes delivery people. Yeah. How, about how about that text you sent? Yesterday in your mailbox a post it note or a piece of scratch paper that goes high see low now now, when you when you get that, how do you handle that? I just stare at any. Either because it was like two months ago, about said ex delivery in the guy writes hollow wobble on the on the. You Stevenson a your children. I, get the thrown at me. Okay. If you weren't offended right because I mean this is this is low hanging fruit wake up in the morning with your metaphorical boxing gloves on look at social media and get ready to fight because if white male person puts a note of High Ceelo in the mailbox of black man and black man takes it the wrong way than than we could have an issue up in their. One reason why? Call me CEELO. Radio so Now my fault. Okay you and your children and Michael Yeah. They are. But I mean down memory lane we go the origin was and do bay onside kick Saturdays when and for whatever the reason I started calling you billy ocean. And we and the bumper would be suddenly it was just great out now house the drive man you. Please move. Until. To now headed. Border and then all. Then, I got a decision either I think the toll. Road. They go get there faster or don't the city and take a little bit longer. Does may how stringent is Major League baseball with semi or quasi bubbles for teams that are on the road Then no bubbles in baseball okay. They they they have guidelines have a hunger it does seem as menu. Would stay. recommend teams employer do this that and the other while they're traveling and they just appointed. Basically basically, it's like a chaperone each team had to complaints person. With the teams on the road to make sure they're following protocol because. Pro Man it's not just the. The UH marlins wanted to go and get their buck. Or or the card is wanting to gamble on It's the spitting high finding the touching and everything that's during game. That's Being followed people are players are sitting all over field because they're used to doing. Getting. Such a part of baseball. On from seeds bubblegum. A sweet should. SWISHING GATORADE or? Yeah that's that's manning is a nightmare and the. Fact. That that attack for some guys. Hey okay. Now that's out of the bubble. Okay. NBA MLS NHL in the bubble I saw this late last night rudy Gobert was going up for what would have been an easy dunk. King James Fouled the bleep out of him to put him on the line late in the game. So King James. Either lick his fingers or wiped sweat off his face. Put out his hand and said, Rudy come on Minimu- help you up. So rudy grabs his hand and he pulled him up and I'm looking out it didn't bug me during a bubble. They are in a bubble. So therefore, by design nothing bad is supposed to happen. But like I can imagine that there were thousands of people looked at that going Oh my God he just licked his hand touched another man's hand helped him up and slapped him on the but can I get a witness? will be him because. I don't know and it might not have been a complete handling like it might have been. It might have been like wiping sweat off like his mustache area or whatever. Okay. All right. Why would have? Did that's. By that, look his hand and try to. But. Why I mean Right but they're in the bubble. So nothing bad nothing. Bad's ain't nobody coming into that bubble and Biting Lebron James? True. Still. If I if I see anyone looked at hand and it out starting, grab me I'm. And not on land. Okay. But was that the case pre purge to. Yes. General principle. Lavelli Neil, third star, Tribune, Star Tribune dot com at Lavalle Neil he is covering more ground than Lewis and Clark en route to Pittsburgh for the twins game against the pirates beginning tomorrow night the twin series about that goofy one last night. Don't know how much you watched or listened to. But I mean they're role in the ball out there because the buckles or bad were down four zero, the drop a four spot on them middle to late game in the Nelson. Cruz walks up I mean the teams eight and to winning a bunch of different ways. Yeah. For the most part that land. Clicking yet it's been it's been taking. That's field this a little bit they played pretty found in the field May. Bunch of Nice Place Today they threw out a runner at second and got another run down. The maturity. Taking advantage of states like wild pitches, impact walls. But the offense really you know dump sometime the lineup and average just say the first on the other day botched. Slow Stat Keppler, two rooms opening day then Kinda. Tonight that. I it sounds like it's flowing yet ya. But now the pitcher staff especially the bullpen. You know has the bar afraid that one radio talk show hosts like to say has been the cat pass. And in defense has been. You. Just think. Scheduled by the time I tear from this road trip. All the twins they either to be fourteen in five or thirteen and sick. Hey last one is this tyler clip bird we're getting how he mostly always has been i. mean the the follow them that closely but I know who he is and this cat is crafty. Tyler Clipper. Actually, they add some motive last years. He's been in team that he's he's. He's family. He's actually good. Hitters. So it's it's almost like they're lucky in the bullpen. Between, take him into the twins that that ability. But you got it's interesting bullpen you got the young sons and Rogers. and May, and then you've got these veteran guys sitting in the back in the bullpen and Romo and telling tip is just Kinda you know. Morning over all the young guys and making sure everybody focused and they give him some pointers being mentors and they get it done. It's a it's a it's a nice mix town in personalities and the. Right. Now Hey, man I'm really glad you're well I was concerned about your last text to me you are outside of elk mound Wisconsin then you went dark. So I was hoping a member of the Gerber family did not lobotomize you and turn you into a sex slave at, but it seems like you're okay. Dan Dare Schmitz may not be trusted legend check I just. have an iphone five. Okay. That's how older then no. Pledging, all the time it's like. Watching their the berry drain, it's like watching the clock go now they. You. Know The you know the riders for the athletic have iphone eight, nine and ten. They have ice twelve right now. Yes. You Know Roussel skinner two bucks to buffalo subscription. Talk that right. Bill, the house only to. The net I got no idea man but I'm saying, Hey, there's a PA and capitalism and you can get out there and get it and somebody's willing to pay then has just how the old cookie crumbles travel safely. Okay. Bottle call you soon. Thanks for calling talk the tip Lavelli Neil the third star Tribune Star Tribune Dot Com old school best school when our chatting with wobble wobble. Likewise, raring gleaming from set athletic in studio around the corner. Good Morning. Her. Bright Centerfield. Off Winter looks and sounds like employees. Not Quite the same. Way To win. Look pretty good. Pretty good to me. Courtesy of Fox sports north twins walk off on the pirates night aren't holy cow or Jewish sound. Aren't you a sight for sore eyes up airing gleam my beloved techy. Roldan. Here looking like just the most adorable kid in the world on his way to the bus stop for I I bus ride to kindergarten. You got you got your backpack. That's right. You're ready to go to that twins game one a ballpark day for you today. Yeah. Good Morning. It's it's been a good week. You didn't take the morning good morning good morning implied When I say what's up Yeah. Clock game today. That's right. Final game against Pittsburgh and then oddly they travel to Pittsburgh as you talked to the Lavelle in the car, I will tell you that he prominent member of the twins organization last night following the game when told that Lavelle was driving himself to Pittsburgh said why the F. would he do that? And I thought man because that's what he does. Right and yeah, I, mean there's there's not like. There's nothing from which he's running. Right? You know it's not like more bond marriage no nagging or whatever, and I just got to get out. No, he has nothing. There's no need for him to go down into his man cave his the whole world. This is man cave basically like he just world is. That's that's the best way to look at. So I thought he would be quarantined if he flew is that not accurate? Well, yes he's making it up as a y'all's while he's driving and that's I think part of the reason why and you know like my beat right writing partner at the Athletic Dan Hays go into the Chicago series this year in the Milwaukee series but the faraway once spur Kansas City am a lotta outlets aren't covering that, and so we've seen that ain't that far away though no, but it said what nine hour drive like that I, mean that's for two games by the way. Just turn around and come back. But so we've had this passive aggressive low key Star Tribune athletic thing is really starting to boil. It's not even that passive aggressive I started get aggressive me wobbled has got aggressive with like Dino. Rousseau makes this from each subscribe Maguire. Wow we're going next level here. Are we wobble? I mean they have US outnumbered. Defensive, last night, there were only two of us in three of them in the press box but so the cardinals have been in town. The Indians have been in town, and now the return town the Indians had zero traveling press you know target field press box cardinals got bit. Right. Sina with dice dice in their mouth that's right. In your mouth for good luck. Don't do that. Okay. Don't do a pre purge or. You're against what about just blowing on it what blow on either. Particles in the air people getting sick like just sure it's changed the whole Based thing but then then less yesterday, they were to pirates, media members. So most people aren't traveling. So I give I'll read it for that. So yeah, any anybody major league baseball since the twins played cruise walks off to where we are. Now anybody could bit Well Your Molina that he's one of the cardinals really that's been. You know they just didn't reveal the names don shooter get bit I. Don't know if it was Jock Tutor Jack Clark. Terry Pendleton checking. Yeah So they're going to be I mean there without I think. Players that they'll have to sub for the MARLINS are still without like fifteen or sixteen years that they'll have to sub for. Yeah. So they're putting that that player pool a good use the twins have not been the twins have I think done a great job obviously following protocols and all that I mean they're serious about it. We'll see what happens as they go out on this ten ten game road trip because the first road trip was only three but you know to a player they talked about we stayed in the hotel we didn't go bar hopping. Doing. This is that mandated I mean is that Oh it's not mandated. Strongly want to get through the full season. It's similar to I would say the state or the country as a whole where the officials will tell you please do this please do that but they don't tell you have to. You know now we're seeing some mandates for mask-wearing wearing and stuff like that, and so start wearing mass I think that it's maybe more difficult for a baseball organization to do that because there's no laws involved real. You can't. You can find someone but what the Marlins did I mean there's no. There's been rumors about how the cardinals had their outbreak in their GM denied the whole casino thing that they're talking about but you know. Who knows the marlins denied anything sounds like they were just out on the town for a couple of nights and then got God that was before the season that was the exhibition with the break. Right it was in Atlanta for apparently that's where Lou Williams went to get ashes. Atlanta's got to be the place to be when when this is all over, we gotta go to. Magic. City in Atlanta and have chicken wings I'm in forget the wings. This is Aaron Lehman Aaron gleaming dot com at Aaron gleaming the athletic. The athletic dot com elite is also a connoisseur quality MANISCHEWITZ. So if you would like to tweet him at at Aaron Glenn was Samana Schevitz Type Concoction Recommendations He can do that. He does that he is the is the twins techy. They it's going to happen as they told as I told Norte or shared with Nardo in the opening segment it's whether it's a one, sixty, two or sixty. Game piece when you're coming off series where you didn't hit and you found elite ways to win defense bill moving runners just the station to station bed. You know after we we know you're the bomb squad. Okay. Can you win a three one game against a decent? Yeah. Well, yeah. Well, when three of them and then I was so impressed when I learned that they won last night and I did not see the end of the game I'm watching it at Canterbury in the sinkhole. And it's his boring boring gets I mean when it just was terrible usual. But then then hang that fourth spot what bottom six bottom of six foam and then Nelly cruise walks up they rolled the ball out and is like we're GONNA play this game or the best. We can to win a three one game and figure out how to it in the next game and so on. They're finding different ways to win every single game to get to that eight and two they slept. Walked through that sucker last night got a little snap to jump up get the four get the walk off. This is amazing I mean I think were it sounded like you know we talked a few guys after the game like they were super frustrated through five innings or getting shut out by Derek Holland while people you know you you know Shelton had them all wound up to play us and they were showing like shelton videos during pre-game and all that stuff like Baldo, Shelton best these. Shell House to be ball daily battle. Absolutely, and you know they're just fighting for everyone at this point because they're you know struggling team Pittsburgh but Pittsburgh's defense and some shaky pitching relief pitching open the door a crack for the twins, and then like you said, they just busted right through it, and then once you tie it up and the bullpens come into play the twins. Bullpen has been like almost flawless except for one game the second game of the season all year, and so you start bringing in guys like Matt Whistler and he's looking like rollie fingers for two innings. Then you get the Taylor Rogers whose great all the time and it's almost a matter of if not win that they're gonNA walk it off and the fact that they didn't. Their second third. One out tie game bottom of the ninth now crews up now Sano Ondeck didn't they didn't even seem to think about intentionally walking cruise you load the basis for snow you hope to strike out from. Then, have to I just thought that was going to be a no brainer what any bottom of the ninth and you've got to call I mean. So you're marine to right hander who bails out uncertain submarine curves. Anyway this is all they shelton doing. And Chuck Tanner and figure out how to run that bullpen. When you to seven, maybe you don't WanNA WANNA pull out every button, but you know the twins appreciate it, Nelson. Crew Arise almost one at with gap or one before that. Fly Instead, and then cruise walked him off. Yeah it. Obviously, you you want the offense to be putting up huge numbers and they're not and so I'm not trying to point that paint that as a positive that they're you know scoring three four runs instead of ten twelve Ron's via. But the fact that they're winning these games without big offense, I'm confident that this lineup is GonNa hit it's too good not to hit eventually even over the course of sixty game. So the fact that they're winning these low scoring tight games wants the lineup starts to click I think there will really be rolling you you maybe better than most outside of Seo will dave knows that I like to follow baseball and Look at box scores and it is absolutely of the core for of the pros it is whether it's a sixty set or it's a one sixty two is the weekly trend and or Mirage leader. Yeah. It's they don't go ten. Ron's one run nine runs. What they don't do that baseball doesn't do that never has done that and the ebbs and flows or things that I'm really into with Major League baseball and the twins are there through town I mean they're satisfying pretty much everything but but there is there is a sneaky low key bit where it's not not this not paranoid central, a panic-stricken thing or twenty-seven Yankees with the Bomba's through. Tan Kaikal. Five and chains not great. But Dallas Kaikal knows how to pitch Bieber Twenty-seventh strikeouts through to high 'em. So like there have been two in their beach Alito okay, Angelinos? Good Lucas Toledo can pitch but there have been a couple of times where like a big dog jumped up and we couldn't get around it. So I'm just like I'm just looking at that a little bit as the ups come up and stuff like that. Yeah. The G. Lido thing I mean, jellied Alaska was as good as Bieber Bieber I've never seen somebody dominate a good twins lineup as much. His I didn't see his first his second performance whereas just cy young believably good like you can't be better than that. Really. Kyko they got two runs off from. But yeah through four innings they were frustrated in. But I think there's no doubt that the lineup has not clicked yet. Josh Donaldson was struggling before he gets calf injury. Mitch Garber has struggled Buxton and snow have struggled just really except for Nelson Cruz and Max Kappler. Now nobody's really rolling like they did even arises hidden low two hundreds at this point We didn't see that last year I mean they basically clicked offensively all year long the only kind of difference in their performance throughout the year was with pitching based on a lot of it was bullpen based last year. The pitching has been the most consistent part. They've gotten this year. I mean all for last night when Lewis Thorpe was making a spot start and he did not look good at all. They've basically allowed zero one or two runs in every start usually four or five might went six the bullpen except for one game, the Kyko game has been essentially flawless. Yeah and so that's a completely different recipe than they had. But you still look at the lineup you go. Well, it's going to start to hit and they're gonna I think this week I thought this is going to happen last night and it really didn't but I still think it's GonNa Happen in these next games against Pittsburgh Casey, which is they're going to start to hit some some big numbers offensively and you just hope the pitching why would see that I mean I mean. Because Holland felt like a seven for the I agree and they were plug I, mean these are as I said, earlier, human nature also is a fair handicapping angle. I mean, you don't plug these suckers in grand because Holland is this and crews done this against him all of his career, Blanco whatever. It doesn't work like that all the time specifically in the per no agreed and for five innings I was shocked by what Holland was doing but you look at the box score, they're scoring four runs off him. I mean four runs in five innings. That's not bad. They got they got two and five plus I've Kyko if those are the. Bad performances that's not bad. But I just think looking at the rest of Pittsburgh staff and that Pittsburgh bullpen appears to be a mass and then we know Kansas City just isn't a real super competitive team pitching. So I think this is an opportunity for them. Particularly, Donelson get back in the lineup on the road trip that they can start to put some eight tenths and some twelve you are familiar with Jeff Wald from box nine Yes. Yeah. I'm not he at Jeff Wald Fox nine as a really cool tweet from a minute ago and it was at nc this last night and catch the end of the twentieth matic's. The twins gotta walk off victory over the pirates last night, the Cova style celebration featured fake high fives, the dancing sprain hand sanitizer, and then there's a cool picture of it here I mean I'm not I'm not overly whatever one way or the other I just think that's funny and cold. It was funny. There were a lot of like jazz hands going on guys like wanted to hug each other but then they realized they couldn't just of did like that and a couple of guys just came on started spraying water bottles all over the place and everything it was. It was odd but as Rockabilly said after the game, any kind of walk off is pretty damn good to me and I hope to see a whole lot more of those weird and awkward as they were. But you know there was, let's say just one or a handful but let's just say one watching saying. Do now hard that handsome sanitizer is to get. Forms now on Ethel it was was eighty, six and. Can't go. You know what I'm saying I mean there's GonNa be the just people are GonNa go that way and look and go like what a while I never what what? I mean there definitely are aspects of not only baseball in the twins, but you're going to see it soon. Once in training camp starts up, there are things that professional sports teams are able to do and secure and protocols. They're the follow like the rapid swab testing and all this equipment that they're giving the people to keep things clean that just the every day you know Joe Schmo is not able to do and yeah, I mean I guess there's some frustration with I would kind of say that the. IRA for that should not be directed so much at the team. Or the League so much as the bigger picture state government national all that stuff I mean, it's not the twins that are holding people back from it although certainly, the twins being owned by billionaires in a billion dollar business helps them secure a lot of stuff aaron gleaming.

Sh- mackney cough had a hat trick as well. They're going for the sweep today are the canes King Hendrick King Henrik. Very short with the bubble. He actually wants to go home. He does not like the bubble they're gonNA lose Canes Ranger's game three at seven wild, and of course, go to bed now because it starts at nine, forty, five, pm and Apac one with outline and shy flee last night. That's pretty cool. Jason's okay. Got A goal. We're happy for him because he wants played here. So we have to adore every single player that spent any significant time Minnesota for the rest of their careers the NBA boxing and nets get a good. Look at the first round series will look like in the Eastern Conference. The box will sweep the nets, of course, but the nets being playoffs meaning that the Timber Wolves get that beloved and coveted first round pick whenever the hell the NBA draft comes. MIAMI. And Celtics is going to be sweet deceiving Houston in Portland Weird Merkich and whiteside related melodrama occurring for Portland, is they figure out how to use both of those healthy guys in the mix and Zion played more than fifteen minutes. In the Pelicans one, those are your bubble bits later in the week of course, MLS Philly and Portland Tomorrow Night Thursday night the beloved loons now back to nine to noon. Well basketball was near the tail end of the bubble bits. Yes. which Aaron Glenn Leaves Up Nine to noon to offer a proposition or something fun. This ought to be good given night each of us Oh, you two hundred dollars yeah and not stop keeping score of. Medically mathematically impossible that I'll lose think our trip bats is bored with Hidden Kansas City. So you've won yeah. Okay. So you get two hundred each from northern and I you win what about what about concocting? That was a lot less of a ceremony than I was expecting. The only thing I care about now is if I get a Portland and Minnesota United Final I, believe that I surpass. PA managed last Cotton John That's PAS. Texted me. Yeah. Mid afternoon on Saturday and he said I'm smoking ribs. And nordahl I've invited Nuoro to come over for the loons game yeah. I forgot the loons were playing that. And that does talking about both sides, your mouth be this. This is the open and honest covenant Bows New Sweats I. Mean I'm saying a I'm saying that I do have an immense amount of respect for the first pro sport to push through this thing those brave souls. Yeah. Get teams bit kick them out commissioners like now we're moving forward their championship game championship match pitch side. Bungalow. Yeah is going to be a week from today. So they pushed through it. Clap for you you gave us something. On which we it's a pro sport on which we could wager and friendly, which is most important in my mind and secondly at IDA I don't enjoy watching the games I don't think you do either it didn't convert you at all this this. Three weeks stretch that we concocted to sort of force our interests convert me how to make your bigger fan. No, the the appointment viewing when I know I can't win four hundred. That's dad. Yeah. Now, the level of appreciation. So I blew you guys out too much what you're saying. It was too much laugh or no not really because like Nardo told me earlier in the score six eighty, we're looking at the soccer schedule getting ready for bubble bits. Yeah. And he's like Portland Philly tomorrow night that'll be good I'm like, yeah that will be got. Yeah. Blake is the Golden Goalkeeper for Philly I've watched Philly in Portland a little bit actually know the goalkeeper. Yeah. So yeah I'll watch a little bit of if it happens to and we watched all of the Minnesota United Game, the other night and I will watch Thursday night. So yes, that is the conversion, but the level of respect will never diminish you came up with A. Plan you came up with the bobble. You were the first to do it even though you're not gonNA get other legs NFL NBA in Nhl too loudly concede it. I. Know They monitored a lot of what you were doing and they went through a lot of your in bubble protocol and they have gravy drained it. But of course, because they're specifically the freaking empire where it's you know a soccer blow, we come up with all of our own ideas and we lead the way and we're the empire. Now the you were tapping on mls several times to figure out the ABCD and e, and then here you are. So I got respect for it concocting. A NBA WTI. Yeah. Okay. We come in. We'll got to of course your and you have no choice this roll this sucker right over. Yeah. Dan as will be in that seat wearing and if he's not, it'll be able talking about the two dollar piece per subscription going roost. We is this the first time Lavelle, and I have both been on the show on the same day ever I don't now might be why. It's not much of a rivalry for both on the show together rivalry I, can I can create it? Earlier. Yeah. I can go Ryan. Harman on and be the agitator here. He's too nice. He's been too to meet as are you well? Yeah. So any ideas what do you? What do you think? Well, the question we ought to be playoff along. With, the playoffs none of these seating games or anything like that. We can. We can just draft all sixteen teams I think. What's I? Guess we draft fifteen because there's only three of us but. The question is, do we want to draft players as yes do we just WANNA point scored to simplify it a little bit. I think in our own quirky ways we are all at times perceived to be odd od. Odd At times okay. We're on. We're oddballs. Yeah. We in real life in real life and on the radio and and Sekwa managed assault then we're on. Okay. So I want I suggest. I propose the points for the players yeah. Are Via oddball statistics. Now hear me out here I want to call it the oddball challenge. So we got the W. T. A winner-take-all. Now, we got the down with obesity you know way. Oddball Jalle okay. Steals blocking negatives turnovers. What what are you? What? What, what are we doing here? You're trying to the water so that I don't have a good advance can't sweep this whole thing what are you talking about because the more statistically based is I feel I have an over you know. More, where you're just let Kevin Greedy, let slow down when it comes to anything NBA involved regarding the mind you never have an edge of well, let's put the money where the mouth is then steals in turnover blind. I'm trying to make it different and fun challenge points rebounds assists how That's so. But the thing I'm doing other with the oddball challenge and making it steals blocked minus turnovers yeah. I'm trying to make the scoring easy for somebody who's going to score it who ain't gonNA. Be Me well, it'd be. Buying an score. Thank God for Him Plus I. What's he? Can I mean maybe maybe you know their power trip that's actually going on Morning Joe, cut him in on A. It. Liked independently wealthy give him two hundred. No, but I'll give them. That's money. Intrigued with the and maybe it's bad for radio where we were we wouldn't be drafting. Yana Sin Lebron. Let's got boring. If we're doing blocks and steals. Now suddenly we're talking about Hassan whiteside Turkish. Issue Smith enters an equation. But If the relic the skeletal remains of him Noah gets three blocks the game for the clippers that might elevate you know what about Javale, McGee what about think of it this way? About in the third round of the playoffs or something and. Honest goes for fifty two points and eighteen rebounds, and we're we don't care. Did he have a steal and block? Okay. Come up and roll appreciate great rice. But what if we just say Oh okay jails in Glorious James and Nays Myth God bless both of you. Okay. I'm sorry for offering a freaking suggestion nobody like, Hey, I'm just trying I just said I liked it to get the oddball challenge going you down with obesity. Yeah. You. We want our cashback, I'm not scoring it I conceive WPA. This, my work is done. Yours has just been some of this what. We go points. Rebounds assists scarring it. That's Not. GonNa do can do it beat writer now and you're busy nor do I got time sitting in that press all due respect because I love you nordahl played himself out in the WTA role in every single morning Nestle updated scoresheet until he got buried in the scoresheet but soccer stats are annoying detract because they're all very odd stats like she just stopped. Does out. So I guess things over you know so. He's not scoring, but we can buy them not scribe. We'll score or something simple like steals and blocked out happening. All of a sudden how come we got no montage scorer, the obese e you know that's just a priorities issue at that point. If that is the case one, hundred percent of priority. You think it's not to hear like an Eric Staal goal I want to win money points, rebounds and assists you just get one for each okay blocks and steals you get to each and then. Oriented. I'll do it. It's not. I. Won't go whatever you want but you can set up a Yahoo League it's like a fantasy. It's won't be that if you mean on the fly like that, we can draft. I'll get okay. What tweet PA right now if you're listening to this tweet tweet meet I liked some guys comment on something mark. Lazarus of the athletic. Robin Lehner the Goal Lee? Something he said Oh. But I'm soliciting someone did I'm like very powerful tweet mark if twitter or important to me or more important to me to like follow it every minute to like chat and stuff like that. It ruined my night. Just never stopped linked into one of those bits where where you know one guy comes in and starts arguing point then they all start arguing and I'm tagged in it we'll hey the important thing is you're not bothered by all here the next day. No not bothered by it at all I'm just saying don't put the tweet bid out, but I'm saying 'cause then when I'm trying to promote those five or forty race piece, it gets lost I'm saying what business there are plenty of players smart reasonable. Proactive people out there listening to the sounds of our voice right now that would gladly set up a spreadsheet assuming power bats won't 'cause maybe he will concern he's the God of Bat spreadsheets but I think we do six categories. Turnovers. I like minus turnovers because when James Harden those fifty points but he turns it over fourteen times. I like that you subtract some points. I appreciated this simplicity. Yes he again you're talking about. I just know Seattle like the tune neither point scorer fantasy is fun. Fantasy is supposed to be fun and not involved negatives. Initial suggestion was just point scored I understand. So then we're just drafting the MAITLAND needs to be more than that. Okay, and it needs to be that simplicity Ella fell goes below the surface like we're missing out on the below the surface driving that can be done out the the the are you down with obesity. got. James Harden. Alternative. Overall. Come never never ever will be uttered again with all due respect in the same sentence. Well respected fantasy basketball league in the history of the world I think he's out who's out I. Think Gleam Gleam out of the you can't put those two in the same. So soon as you to pay me two hundred dollars, I'll gladly fog ears right now. I want him in the obesity avid shot to get my money. I got to sell off a few things. So I don't know man if you guys if you guys come up with some form of idyllic like thought order did a great job struck I didn't do it worked out pretty way. Now we're at a stage where things have happened where it's over a week and change before, but it actually ends but if they. Go Rossi had gone off twice in a row. Yeah. I'd only be like thirty or forty up yeah and then if you guys each got a win here at the late stage could overtake me and that was how it was set up to be. United I've Maria right but the NBA's more compelling than MLS. Broader stamp there's more games in the mix and all of that. So yeah. So even if one of us was getting our asses kicked, we're still feasting on games every day. Yeah. I'll put that in your your mental cliche back pocket. What when do the wind is this thing donner this regular season like today's excellent question do like two weeks within the next two weeks. You see here they're definitely starting. September with the playoffs. The final game, for instance, I was just looking at the heat right now to see how my Guy Dunkin's doing August fourteenth last seating gang. the next week shot in the Sassy vein of the W.. Winner winner-take-all with the obesity the oddball wall challenge. Yeah. Any chance with the fourth overall pick you take Spencer Dinwiddie kind of like Carlos. Vela's anybody's wife pregnant. Draft. Dennis. Schreuder. I think left the bubble like Dennis Schroder Embassy. And Lou Williams Hey hey, I bet and the coin flip much like most of my life I know went the wrong. Okay. You're right. Let let's take it a step farther. Okay. Just let me ask you this question. Here is there any chance the in? The ball challenge, maybe you'll draft like Jason Tatum and then like the team like Barco come off the bench. I like that PA for. fell. where I did cat I instead of Yon us now that's in. Your you you are the you own. He has ultimate rupe jaw I mean he really does like actual non radio show outside of here if he weren't tied into this or anything than like for instance, at Cotton John's at the quarantine lounge with the smoke dribs the Malone's roles in in a United Jersey Oh. Yeah. I'm like Damn Rube Grad Kit what a kit shirt it's all the cat. Yeah. Like jerseys are called sweater. Jersey but yeah, the hardcore now that I'm the elite soccer. Okay and then so now yes, I'm yeah. Newell. So Sunday night flight nine, forty twist. My excuse me he encouraged excuse me he asked me if I would do some stream yard thing to start the wild game pump it up at nine thirty on Sunday. That was awesome Jump in there and he's wearing a while to other. Yeah. So I'm like look at this look at this boy, my surrogate nephew by surrogate nephew role with this robe Grad and caring about the overly wound up overly officious constipated individuals who look at people his age and they say you are too old to Wear Jersey late twentieth I'm saying you are too old to. Do Anything. You're old and your decrepit and he's a rope. There's two places that are good for jerseys. It is when you go to the game or if if you're at somebody's house hanging out who the care frankly we're in jersey, whatever got summertime you WanNa Role Sean Camp Old School Sonics thank you sleeveless out there with some cut off Jean shorts and a t-shirt. Now, you can't wear a taste. Would you wear an NBA Jersey sands any form of garment underneath I made my house. Around. No, absolutely not. Kashmir it out. That beats that on my level of love for you to just cannot be it cannot quantify. A Yes I mean for the NBA. Clipper is no the name. But. I I. But I don't know him well, I don't know the smell. Is he like Super Mr Crafty. Guy For the last X. amount of craft it more to say rhyme a little bit. You know he takes his time. That's why lie about it plays the Fujii's as as intro music which I like Lauren Hill and the water that I bought a quick trip yesterday in right never mind but Jeez rock Fujii's are terrific. Name me one song. Killing. Me Softly. Yeah. covers. All Great. New. School. Sucks. Okay. That was Roberta flack. School is twenty five years ago. Right I'm up with your own stuff that was Roberta flack's but anyway okay. Well, sorry. No diggity. No doubt. Don't you guys are. Cover. Any songs. They might have covered. You lost that love. Yeah. I suspected heard it from the righteous brothers and made millions do boo them when you're a boxing well John. Fox Box. I'm getting better at counterpunching in these situations I needed in order to win the WTA. So I could actually get box on my button bar. Okay. I mean. We learned a lot about people during the bird a Nordahl. Where's the soccer scoresheet? I'm done. That's his his number. One quote today not Jackson the quiet storm. Oh said quote today. Okay. That's nice. Keep saying we're getting piled on here in the final hour clippers cool. Man I mean then you get that to winning thing when homer comes lame fortunately was in bed all richhill not bit but ten day I else we won't see him and Dick I ended with this because I forgot to ask wobble and I want your opinion. Okay. The twins bullpen where it is now all facets of it where where do you think it ranks stopped they had major league baseball like from a trust standpoint I mean in terms of the number of buttons you can push that they all have trust in there isn't a team with more depth they they land like topped. The charts their eighth best guy is better than every other teams eighth best Guyq now is their second third and fourth guy maybe there's some teams that compete with that but we're seeing it last night last night tie game seventh eighth inning while those like I'll put in Matt Whistler he's a waiver claim from six months ago. He's got a five year in the majors but we've tweaked his slider, and now he's a weapon they have Taylor Rogers at the back who's one of the best left baseball and then I think they, they honestly have six or eight right handed reliever including alkaline that we saw yesterday for its first appearance throwing ninety eight that they trust and Calgary was. I mean he came in Lewis store was throwing eighty, eight, eighty nine as the starter struggled L. comes in he throws a slider ninety one. Then he's fastballs nine, Ninety, eight, ninety, nine that's what they got in the deal for Ryan. Presley might help me get over Dr. yes. Similar. He's like, yeah poor man's bruised. Are I think with a maybe a better slider but yeah, I mean the twin. Can take a poor man's bruce. Good. I think that's a drink somewhere to meant it'll Barco. Yeah, I mean. You you go to manage for fine dining. He goes to the Big Yellow Candy store in Jordan. I gotta go you Aaron Glenn First of all I. Love You secondly to you are a gentleman scholar and a connoisseur equality Schevitz and for all of that nine to noon greatly appreciate you, I. Very Much. Look forward to winning your money basketball as well as soccer down with obesity. Yeah you. Don't need the eighty section the. Disclaimer don't need the visa fairness. Stupidity. act. I'm just gonna read an email got an hour and change ago from a lady named Lisa Asks Lisa Ass and I'm just going to read it and we're going to give a quickfire thought what we think of it because it's like big opinion central when it involves testing and covert and masks and Oh yeah, it's massive opinion central people. Get offended if you don't see it a certain way, it's yeah. Age of rage rack age of rage copyright. Pastor. Wes subsequently gravy trained by nine to noon you ready. Yes. I don't and she she formulates a covert related opinion that I'm not going to share because I'm just not gonNA share it i. don't care about that part of email, but I do care about this. evacuees, booth OCCA- A FAN DOT COM I. Don't understand why these professional sports athletes are getting tested regularly, and Games are being canceled because a few tests positive why not do like every other industry in America and take temperatures ask if they have symptoms and and if not, then go to work like every other person in America if they do have symptoms, then test them and quarantine them and then quarantine others if necessary, there should be no reason to cancel or postpone games No shoes me she wrote canceled there should be no reason to cancel games remove the positive player. Or players and move on quick testing. The less they have symptoms that is the way businesses have been able to keep production going through all of this why not the same for sports if they have to cancel games for one positive test on a team, we will never get through any season why even try baseball can't do it with twenty five to thirty players how will football ever succeed the reason I share? That? Is I look into I, look into drum up conversation on both sides of the story both sides of the equation I never seen it formulated to me like that. I've never seen it formulated via the radio or talking I. Will I never talk about this people but I've just never seen it like that But like when I go to Canterbury Okay and we have our protocol here with with Santa. Sanitizing masks and all that when I go to Canterbury to get in and do my job at at. Three o'clock three fifteen today when I look into that temperature check ipad better get the right number if that Mug says temperature not right stand on the Test you're out but I mean it they my temperatures checked every single day and then we know symptoms and the now we got to be responsible. You know what I'm saying that that email man would you think? No, I. Think it's I. Mean there's there's so many things that go into it. She's right did a good job. The majority of the work places We we temperature checked, for instance, before we come in here and and all these things are. Fluid and subject to change one way or the other for sure. Yeah But all of us, the guy that I saw a quick trip at to twelve and one on one this morning that guy probably did not have to get tested or anything before he came to work you know and so she's right. I think the difference is though is when you have private entities like these pro sports leagues that are able not only to finance the procurement of tests. But then now you have the negotiations from the player's associations of these leagues. I think that that then then there's the PR element of it. You know if if it's leaked that so and so indeed did test positive, but he's as symptomatic. Yeah. Yeah. Big Opinions negatively you can go back and forth on it. That's a really good player, but ultimately I, it is my belief that for the most part I think that exists because they have the money to procure their own testing procedures and things almost like their own little mini governments whereas we gotta wait in line outside of a clinic in new hope. To find out maybe eight days later that we actually didn't have anything. So I think you know where it's it's a very macro galveston's. Leagues are plan and in closing off that if you are completely on the other side of what Eric said it is at mad producer Juan. If at ten fifty, you are offended by the tweet that I didn't even bring up Hashtag. Maga you can go to at. Yeah at mad. Maga Mega. Mega. Mad Producer wanted to hats up via twitter.

Bold capital letters with emojis bold. Be bold as long as you. Don't pick the side door again this year. You did it two years ago you last year. You tried to get back in the game. So i appreciate you. Actually having some respect for these Bold predictions and and being a little bit more ridiculous and not not. Scotty the issue. By talking. About like john sterling's homerun calls or don't have a john sterling bold prediction this year. Yeah no it's all good. The i'm ready for it i. I'm i'm very excited about this season. I just i just did a podcast with film school. Who's another new york. Show covering the knicks yesterday. And i got i didn't realize until i started talking about it with someone else. That's kind of. That's kind of rude. well it did. Yeah it got me excited in a different way. So i got a. I realized how fired up. I was for the season so yes. I'm i'm ready to go. Let's let's let's get these predictions out. Yeah it's you know how. I feel about predictions. But yeah i'm gonna i'm gonna indulge. I'm going to indulge in the act and this is also a special episode. Because we have bob the internet. I feel like bob. The intern needs to be said in a bridget bob. The intern is on the show. Until i get need to have a british accent bob. What's up welcome to the show. We've been teasing it for a few weeks. You've been doing some stuff on the back end. But you're going to be a part of of the our weekly shows that come out on mondays. You're gonna be on those episodes going forward. What's up man. What's up guys. Thank you for having me. I'm said to be here. He's funny how everything kind of came full circle since tyler work guys but I look forward to learn from you guys in just being involved so it's going to be fun season. Yeah and part of this is you're going to have to grade us on our on how bold we are. So you're and you're gonna tracking it throughout the throughout the year to keep us honest on because two years ago. Scott predicted nineteen against the orioles. And then somehow backtracked on it and said he really predicted seventeen in two or whatever the yankees ended up finishing so it was a this this way now. We have someone who tracking it. And there's no one would have been able to tell me that i was correct. Did say that. Originally even after i showed and had you listened to the audio tape. Yeah okay. I'll be keeping tabs. I'll be closely keep keeps on his bob so bef- before we get to those those bold predictions Let's talk about the the events on monday. The last day of spring training it was. It was a weird day. And if you were if you were if you had your head buried in the sand that day and maybe you were in meetings all day then you didn't realize it but if you were just on twitter like a big portion of yankees of yankees fans. It was weird because boone was supposed to talk to the media before the final spring training game and then that got pushed back and then he his availability got cancelled and they announced brian. Cashman would be speaking to the media at about one o'clock and that got kept kept getting pushed back and then he didn't speak until at three o'clock judge meanwhile was not in the lineup for the third straight game. So naturally everyone's thinking oh. His ankle is broken. Uh-huh his yeah. What is going on with judge. Because i don't blame them for connecting those dots and we thought it was going to be a major thing to judge. It turns out. He's not in the lineup. Because he was just feeling under the weather according to boone and according to cashman are we didn't even get flu. Did we get flu like symptoms or we just got under the weather right then we just got under the weather and they had to do covid testing because obviously that's that's a big thing still so if you're feeling sick if you tell the team doctors you're feeling sick. Guess what they're going to test you for covert. They did not say anything about those tests. They said he needed to go through. Protocols are you buying. that was just like a a spring head cold or do you think there's something more like are you a hundred percent confident. Aaron judge will be in the lineup on thursday. I can't always say that. I'm a hundred percent confident to be honest the way things have gone but that being said like i think that if anybody feels anything they're they're going to delay as much as humanly possible until they get that cova test because that's what they're that's the if you're not feeling well the covid positive cova cash is the worst case scenario. I guess in that in that in that little bubble right in that in that in that isolated situation so if he doesn't have it then then it's it's much ado about nothing he's just got a dry throat or whatever it is and that's that's all it is but if the covert test comes back positive now we have a totally different situation. And he's gotta go through even more protocol. He's got to get more positive. Tests after being about the whole team could affects everything right. But you don't know that until you get the test back so that's what it sounded like the entire day was like not feel well. Coach probably should get tested. Waiting for that test was supposed to come back at one. O'clock hasn't come back up supposed to come back into it. Hasn't come back supposed to come back at three o'clock waiting throughout the day to get this thing back to make sure that it's actually Clear that's what i think happened you. You might be right. It's just. i'm so jaded that. I'm not going to believe he's in the line of just like i'm not going to believe. Clint frazier is the starting left fielder. I'm not gonna believe. Gary sanchez is the starting catcher for garrett cole until i see all those things happen and then you just and then let's here's the thing if all three of those things happen. You're not allowed to go into your conspiracy theories of like putting your head in the sand for two weeks to what he's talking about. I think that's especially should be a new rule for every everything. Everything that like goes against your your pessimism and gets confirmed as like actually being true and what they say you have the two week buffer pessimistic about something absolutely ridiculous. No that's not. That's not doing anyone. Any favors see the listeners. Like when i dig deeper. And i read between the lines because we've got to find out the truth of what's really happening with this team. So gary sanchez is going to be opening day catcher. Clint frazier is going to be opening. Day left fielder. Aaron judge is going to be opening day right fielder and be ready to play and play a full game. That's what's gonna happen. All three of those things probably aren't going to happen. What of those. Things won't happen every one of those things happen. I hope so. I've prediction that's just that's that's easy. So what the what. The update that cashman ended up giving was that they have finalized some roster spots. Tyler wade once again has made the roster michael king made the roster in nick nelson made the roster nick nelson looked pretty good in spring training so it it really does seem like michael king was added for that justin wilson spot who will start the season on the i l. when there was also a mike talk men fall off of his shin situation so there was like that was up in the air if he was going to actually be on the roster but i believe he no issues there so all to do about nothing they made us freak out and wait for like four hours and it was just to find out that tyler wade. Once again has made the roster. I mean everybody that was going to happen as much as people didn't want that to happen. Everybody knew that was going to happen. Because but i will. There has been some We got a real five back over here now holder who also play shortstop who's known for his glove former believers a first round. Pick back in like he was. He was one of those. Those early picks that the yankees made on the infield that that had gloves but never really panned out on the offensive side which is exactly what they have. Three guys Ceo culverts another one. Who did that. It was over holder and weighed all three. All three guys could play defense. Offense was never there. And i think that's that's where you if you look back at the way that they've drafted shortstops. You see a pattern there but a guy that can that can play the field well and you know maybe he can handle the bat a little bit better than wade. It could be an option down the road For those guys commando though again it would have to be. I think it's a situation where you know. The time just runs up on tyler wade and there's a guy that does similar things in and that's what happened so who knows. It's kind of a long shot but yeah it was interesting. It was of note for sure. Yeah and dietrich. All accepted his option. Down to Alternate site and also robinson street us. They resigned him and he'll be added to the alternate site as he's rehabbing and his initially was a six week timetable so that kind of puts him sometime in late. April i believe and they just needed needed the catching depth as insurance. I think so. We thought torino's was never not going to be an option anymore because of the issue but turns out. We might see him at some point this year. And it's a good thing to have a major league catcher back there. I mean he probably just didn't want to understand rehab And get everything back right and play again. But so that's why he accepted that or the option. And he's he he he understands that this first month or two or go to be crucial for the yankees and the catching position. So having that that major league veteran catcher sitting in aaa is a good thing for us for sure. Yeah because if if it does come situation where. Gary sanchez loses his job. I don't know how he's going to be as backup catcher. They might need to figure something else there. Well that's the other thing just having death in the backup catching position. I mean who knows anything could happen with hickey. As well having a guy like that does provide good depth and and they were very thin without. I mean there are still very thin until he's healthy but it's a good option to have anything else from spring training final thoughts before we move onto bold predictions and finally get to the regular season feels like spring training. Took six years the the pictures of the guys flying back over new york at night seeing the lights and i think geo posted on his instagram. It's it's just a it's just one of those check marks. You know what i'm saying like it's cool to see that it's called the city lights with these guys flying over you know with the With them coming back to the bronx. It's a longtime common so glad glad that that that is happening. And that we'll we'll see some fans in the stands. Tomorrow's gonna be a fun day garrett cole. First time. he's pitching in front of yankees fans first time. It's going to be great. I guess return real real for real so he can as he as he said. The other ones were dry humps. It's great quarter. That's a lot of dry helping the Can we confirm if there were pods on that plane. We got that tweet from someone like they tweeted a picture of of the of the giant plane. It's like come on. Can we get twenty six pods for these guys. It's it's a three and a half hour flight. North just customize betcha gives some get some get some pods in there. Let's let's learn from our mistakes.

Everyone's been waiting for scott. Do you wanna go first. You wanna do the honors okay. I didn't know who to start with. But i feel like Given the the little hints that. I feel like you've been saying i got. I got ahead you off in the past potentially so i'm going to change my order around a little bit. So i'm the first one saying some of these things and we're starting to in the bullpen and the bullpen. I got a big big fastball. I'd tell plus changeup nick. Nelson is emerging as a lead candidate to to to be a major contributor into the yankees bullpen. This year. I think that with the you know the beginning of the season no britain. I think a lot of people are looking at johnny lazaga. Be that guy. And i'm saying that. Nick nelson is is showing enough it kept. It seems like the team really likes him. a lot. fastball changeup as it good nice combination for a one to two winning guy but probably just more of a one inning guy. I think that's what he plays too long term. And i could see him being that that that type of swing guy where he's coming into to shut down. I feel like the confidence. Level and nick nelson is growing with the with the organization and with the coaching staff. And i'm excited. I'm excited about him. I thought he showed really good stuff last year. And from everything we've seen and heard he's only built on it this year They are looking for a guy to emerge out of that bullpen. And i think it's a lot of people think it's allies but i just. I'm not confident that allows you to make that. Make that that swing. We've we've been waiting for it and it just hasn't been there so And it seems like they're making him a real to winning guy plus he's really becoming that middle reliever tight whereas dick nelson has the the the the fastball velocity. The high nineties velocity with a with change up and sets up a nice one inning piece. And i think it's going to be a major contributor. Bob did you notice anything about that. Prediction anything lacking in that prediction. Back up there's nothing to okay. What does that mean major piece. Gimme some numbers. Give me an actual gimme an actual prediction here. Is he going to be the seventh inning. Guy come mid point in the season is he gonna be ahead of certain guys in the pecking. Order what are you. What are you predicting here that he's going to be a he's gonna take a step forward fine. It is a little broad. I could be anything that could be anything. You gotta back it up or the the dude is going to be. He's going to be a seventh-inning he's not going to be an eighth inning by the end of the by the end of the year Maybe i could see him in some of those he's going to be. He's gonna be ahead of the elisa ahead of sessa ahead of everybody else. Not named chapman britain. I think he's gonna actually play above a plug. Just justin wilson. Now that he's out as well he's going to have that opportunity so he could slot it in green though not had had green. What about ahead of darren. O'day i think their different roles. I think there are no day is going to be more of a. He's not a he's not a what was that guy's name who came in all the time against poppy literally he was mired. Mike myers mike myers. Yeah i own going to be used like that. Even though he's not the same type of pitcher but he's going to be used like that. It's like these isolated one to one match ups and and hopefully the you know he doesn't get screwed by the three battle. But yeah. I think. Nick nick nelson is going to emerge as that that guy right behind chad green. That's not very bold that's like. That's like coffee's been rookie. Our forty five minutes. How long did it take to get to this point he. We've we've been been consistent at any in the starting rotation in the bullpen. He's never been consistent. His stuff is obviously good and his biggest issue was when he made the jump from the minors to the majors he started losing command. He was he was a control guy in the minors. That's what made him so does and that's where he was and now we can't do that. It's crazy the fact that he keeps on strike zone so his walk rate in the minors was fantastic and then when he got to the majors he was falling behind hitters. Guess what you can't just be you're not gonna blow guys away in the majors because your stuff is good. It's not that good so he was getting himself in trouble. Okay fine yeah luke luke warm prediction from you. My first one. I got hard numbers for every single other one. So we're good okay My first prediction is about john. Carlos stanton and he will be the yankees team home. Run leader with forty. Four home runs this season. And i don't know how bold that is considering i did put out a twitter poll asking. Who's going to lead the yankees team home runs this year. I added judge. Stay in gary sanchez and gleyber torres and stay in got forty three point. Nine percent of the vote over one thousand people voted and that was the leader. No love for gary sanchez. Less than five percent of the vote but Yeah that's that's my prediction. Big forty-four dinger's leads the team in home runs that also means though he's going to be happy this year because if he's if he's gonna hit all those home runs you got to be on the field so that's also predicting i guess like one one thirty five to one. Forty games played for for giancarlo. Okay i'll combat. What you just said with my number two bold prediction because it's it's it's going directly against what you said. Aaron judge plays one hundred and forty games this year. Fifty home runs and the of the american league. Okay i mean for two thousand seventeen. We get the mvp. It's it's i was looking at the amount of games that trout was playing at his last couple. Mvp's he had a two thousand and nineteen. I think it one hundred and thirty four game. So that's why. I got one hundred forty pegged in their filter into splinter sprinkle in some some off days. Potentially some some sword as some after play on those built in off days and nelson. Today's some potential concrete days down in tampa. We're not gonna roll you. Roll him out there. But i got fifty home runs. Who one hundred and forty games played pretty high home run. That's a pretty high rate of home runs concern. He's hitting fifty homers in one hundred and forty games. There you go well. That's exactly what you do going to be a very very torrid pace okay. Okay at least you put ball deadball era. Let's go at least you put money where your mouth is on on that prediction. That was a little better right. Bob yes improvement. My next one's also go into the bullpen and the yankees bullpen is going to struggle more than the starting rotation for the first time in a long time and i'm predicting they're going to be acquiring to relief pitchers this season before the deadline. The first of which is wade davis. Who is back with kansas city. And he made the major league roster basically on approved me contract. So he's getting only like a million to five for making the roster and then he can make some incentives with casey. But casey really know really has no incentive to keep him. This is really just a. Let's see if he can regain some of that. Kansas city magic and let's flip him at the deadline for like a mid level pitching prospect. So i think he's gonna have a good first half the season and be available. The yankees are going to bring davison and they're also going to acquire. Richard rodriguez from pittsburgh who pittsburgh is selling everyone off okay. This guy is controlled through two thousand twenty three and he's had an up and down career but overall he's been pretty good since two thousand eighteen and one hundred and fifty eight innings pitched. He has a three point o. To your a and a three point seven two v. I think the yankees will target someone like that kind of like they targeted tommy kane lee a couple years ago from chicago as someone who's controlled priori or i think this is the first year of arbitration and they can start to move some more pieces into that bullpen core controlled for a long time. Because some of these guys are going to be coming up. Soon chad green. He's been league six years so they're gonna have to start paying some of these guys. They're going to try and target. Someone like richard rodriguez to bring in and fill the bullpen. He's going to be how nick nelson is gonna get engaged before way. Davison richard rodriguez. That's my prediction. Okay that's mean you wanna talk about random shit that that is a very random prediction. So richard rodriguez who's thirty one. Years old is going to be coming over and in the last season had a almost six. Era okay interesting bold. That is bold that is bold that they were going to go out and acquire that guy in. That guy's gonna make an impact on the team. I think if there's even rumors that either of those guys are gonna be traded to the yankees that you're gonna you're gonna count that as a w one guy tweets if we get one beat writer tweeting all the yankees called kansas city about way davis. I'd just predicted that so. It's funny that you mentioned. Richard reid regis because he definitely came up in our locker room couple of weeks ago. That's the only reason you even know who that is. That didn't even remember that. And i was talking about this. I asked specifically with. That was pudge rodriguez his kid. If you recall and it wasn't. I didn't remember that when i was making this prediction. But that's gotta be where that name came from the fact that you just pulled that one out of your ass completely is i was. I was like i was looking at pittsburgh's roster and i was like oh they're taking who can the yankees trade. I was like oh this guy's had some good stats in his past. So let me tell you why. I think you're completely wrong on that one as well. It's because they have the yankees have so many right handed pitchers in the minor leagues right. Now that are coming. Sodium close to being contributors. I really do think that they're going to be dipping down into those minor leagues and also. This is not part of my predictions. But i would not be surprised if they if we had a luis medina or someone like that coming up a one of these one of these right handed. Flame throwers that are coming in from aa aaa. Ba contributor in the bullpen this year. I have so many guys to throw spaghetti against the wall in that bullpen. That they're not gonna make that part of their acquisitions unless it's an impact guy. It's not gonna be a meddling guy like rodriguez frigging wade davis. Who no one gives a shit about those guys are non impact. Is those guys like impact game like just throw the good. So that's why. I think they're going to look at the talent. They actually have in their system and use a guy like that but they never promote the the only guy that all the time they never actually came up was in double from is not used in any meaningful situation. He's used as garbage relief. Time fill in whenever they have way. May injury used in in a way. Davis is going to be used at high leverage situations. If he's having a good season jesse. Ira richard rodriguez is going to be used in leverage. Just told you what his numbers are since two thousand eighteen. They're good numbers for the past two. And a half seasons overall he had a rough two thousand and nineteen but he was good in twenty twenty and he was good in two thousand eighteen. Two thousand twenty three. We throw that one away. Let's look at the only throw it away when it's convenient for you but when it's not getting ready for you. Yes exactly how. This works next prediction. Let's go with. Let's stay in the outfield. Stay the outfielder. I looking back at the numbers here. I was I was actually a little surprised. And what i saw very pleasantly surprised to be to be very clear. I need to pull these numbers back up here while i'm talking but my prediction is that clint frazier is going to be the starting left fielder which is not part of the bowl prediction. It's just a confirmation of what is going to happen but he's also going to be hitting thirty home runs. I got him at a thirty home. Run guy and let me tell you why last year when you look back at his numbers and i will use two thousand twenty as part of my argument here because it does help my case and also it was a a transition year for him. It was a development. So i feel like that's part of you could use if it's a short series and it's a guy whose developing like taking that next up you kind of have to look at it a little bit more. I guess for trends but not necessarily total impact. But when i'm looking at what he did last year and I was surprised by his on. Base percentage was was one that that really got me. And i'm really struggling to pull this frigging move to go. See richard rodriguez. Thank you very much Here we go the twenty twenty season. His on base percentage three ninety four. You're you're looking at a a guy who has drastically improved. I think the approach at the plate. We saw him going the other way a lot more. I mean you're you're talking about a guy who has an on. Base percentage very close to aaron hicks is doing clip. Frazier's a just you see the amount of walks he had. You could tell that. His his approach at the plate was very much different. It was tweaked in a way where he was not looking to pull the ball all the time. I don't know how many how many in two thousand eighteen when he came or nineteen when he came up and we saw glimpses of him. How many foul balls look like. They were gonna kill back kid because he's trying to pull a ball. That's you know. That was his approach the entire time that lightning quick bats that that's all we saw was the ball and foul. He's he's more patient. He's more mature. He's taking a better approach. The plate and i think he's going to because of that he's gonna see the ball fly over the wall a lot more and it's not just going to be the left field we're gonna see centerfield. We're gonna see right field. He's really taking that judge approach where he's going to spray the ball. I think lemay who's been good Influence on him. So i got. I got clint frazier. Thirty home runs. I think that is going to be a direct correlation of his plate discipline and the the pictures that he's swinging at because of his walk percentage i think is going to continue to increase and looking back at his on base percentage. I was really impressed. I didn't realize as high as it was too. That's very impressive. Especially because he had to sixty seven batting average should have a three ninety four. Ob is very impressive. I don't know if that sustainable for him because he's more of an aggressive type hitter but if he can be three sixty i mean. that's fantastic. Give i put the over under three sixty this year. Are you taking the over the under on that. I'm taking over. Because i think he's just a more disciplined player in general. I think he's he's really owning that zone. He understands where his strengths are and where his week. This is our. I think at this point or at least he's very much learning that and i think an owning it and not trying to be that Overly aggressive like you said overly cocky guy that has all the confidence in the world that he can do things but understanding that there are situations where he has to play to his strengths. More and not let the pitcher dictate what's going to happen. I think that was happening a little too much early on and again it's just i think maturity and discipline is a big piece of this and it's just a player coming into his own. I also made a clint frazier. Predictably dial and i could tell by the look on his face. I also made a clint frazier prediction. And it's not that different from yours. So i feel kind of kind of annoyed with you. i said. Clint frazier will lead the yankees in games played with one hundred and fifty five and he will hit twenty five home runs. That was my prediction. the reason name was twenty. Five home runs. You know what's that. Dj lemay who. It's twenty five home runs. The reason i said he will lead the yankees in games played is because i think there's going to be injuries to aaron hicks and to aaron judge so even if brett gardner is playing over one hundred games which will probably happy and clint frazier will still get significant playing time. And he's the youngest guy in the outfield and he's the healthiest guy in the outfield. Knock on wood. I don't know about thirty home runs. I think he's he's still probably more of a line drive hitter and if the ball is truly a little bit deduced we might not see thirty. Plus but really. What's the difference between twenty five and thirty over the course of one hundred sixty two games are in this case. One hundred fifty five game by. Thanks but it really. That's not that different for for for production. It's five home runs over. The course of six months to psychological barrier thirty home runs as much better than twenty five home runs. I guess so but at the same time thirty home runs was kind of desensitized to thirty home. Runs so i think if he hits twenty five or thirty home runs but the rest of the league is also mashing home runs because the ball still juice not that impressive but if the home run leaders on the yankees are forty four giancarlo stanton and he hits twenty five or thirty home runs. That's that's much more impressive type of type season from him. So i mean. I think we're a prediction from us. Well a it is different in the sense that i'm very surprised that you think he's going to lead the team in games played because of the way the outfielder so muddied up right now with the amount of guys that are out there. I understand. you're basing that on injury which is sick too sick sick pessimistic way to approach that but the fact that the fact that is out there the fact that mike talk men's on the roster jay. Bruce can play right field if needed. Stanton complain the outfield. There's a lot of guys that can play out there. So i'm just having any outfielder as the guy leading that charge to me is a is is is interesting and coming from you more interested in. It's more even more interesting. I i look at a guy like digital may as a no-brainer to to lead the team in games played because he can play multiple positions. He could play first base understanding jay. Bruce is there now no novoye. He could slide over to third base. He can play multiple positions and he's just like every day he's that guy that can go out there so dj limit. He was my second choice for leading games play. But that's not that bold. These are bold prediction. Scott are predictions there. It's a little like okay. okay. I think it's a little but do you think about that. One did you think would. Would you think that carry any weight. I didn't i mean. I think it's fair to take into account the injuries i think i think i think it's fair and i always have numbers for my predictions. Okay i'm i'm either putting a name to my prediction or a number two my prediction. I'm not predicting that. Nick nelson is going to take a step forward this year. I'm sorry but when you're talking about the bullpen. It's very difficult to actually quantify that in a number. It doesn't really. It doesn't really add up to a quantifiable stat. You're talking about the eventually got you to say he's going to be behind the five best relievers in the bullpen. Before i get to my my my overall yankees team prediction. It's not an overall season team prediction. But it has to do with the team as a whole. I'm going to go back into the starting rotation and throw number out at you. And i know that this number doesn't matter and baseball as much but i'm gonna tell you why it matters to me. I got jordan. Montgomery winning fifteen games On the the new york yankees. And the reason i have in winning fifteen games is because when i'm looking up and down that rotation i see a lot of uncertainty behind gary cole and i i'd say go on a limb and say that jordan montgomery is probably the least of the uncertain when you're going through through those guys and that he's probably got the highest percentage chance to get through five innings. And when you're talking about the win. Statistic i actually think it's becoming more not including garrett cole what's that you're not include i'll take your across the other guys but fifteen wins is to an impressive feat because what that means is that you're out there for five innings eligible for a win and i don't think that's being taken into consideration as much when people are pooh-poohing and shitting all over the wind stat. Yes the yankees have to score runs. That has nothing to do with what the pitcher is doing. But that pitcher has to be out there for five innings and be able to give them the ability to score those runs. And also. Now i think jordan montgomery is such a crucial piece to the way that the the whole pitching staff lines up towards the end of the season for a lot of the things that you said. You mentioned that you don't think that the the you is going to struggle and i think in order for that not to happen. They have to have a like jordan. Montgomery going out there and throwing consistently five innings plus. Because if they don't if they don't have a guy like jordan montgomery doing that. Who else is going to do it. I don't see anybody else who really is going to be. That guy was going to go out there and consistently throw. Let's call it six innings. Corey kluber very. Well may not be that guy. You can't depend on that guy. Herman maybe her mind we've seen before you know. He gets that five inning mark he becomes a different guy. So he's got a show that to me. Jordan montgomerie has the repertoire. The amount of pitches to to really eat some innings. And i think he's going to have a much better year than i think. A lot of people are expecting. And i see him as emerging as as dependable guy in there Behind garrett cole. And i think that he's because of that. And because he's going to eat some innings and the score a local runs the residual effect. Fifteen wins fifteen. Wins is the new twenty wins. Because even i just looked at jordan montgomery and his twenty seventeen season in which he was second in was his second rookie of the year or is the second best rookie pitcher that you're right behind a former. He only won nine games and he. He was fantastic for most of the year. Kneeling stone didn't even win double digits. So it's really hard to get wind. So i guess yeah. That is pretty bold pitchers now. It's like you have a great season and you went eleven games. So everything's auto with the wind. But i think a lot of that comes down to his well when you're being pulled from the game and and the fact is that guys are getting a quicker hook now and that's how you get in any trouble though when you have to have patience with a couple of these guys in the middle and jordan. Montgomery i hope it jordan montgomerie has to be one of those guys because i just don't i don't see them doing it with own. No expert action. Cooper if cooper becomes If they see him as a as a guy that's that's that is seemingly healthy. Maybe they will write him a little bit more. Because there's really not that much to lose. But again i think they're going to try to protect him and have him at his best towards the end of the year which again puts now montgomery. Who's far enough away from that. Tommy john surgery where he's really getting back into that into that window. Where you see guys have Sustained sustained success. And really get back to you. Know having the same action on their On their pitches and from what we saw last year and early in spring. I like what i i like. The i like the velocity like the the action on his breaking stuff. I think he's poised for a good year my next predictions also about the rotation and it was spawned because of how they lined up for six games where they're going to go. Garrett cole corey kluber herman montgomery and then go back to garrett cole and five days s and then use tie. I think they are planning on. Managing tatyana includes workloads especially in the first couple months of the season that we talked about tehran's in a couple of weeks back and how he said. Well we didn't put a number on it but he also did mention one hundred and thirty innings as like a target. But if it's more he you know he's not putting a number on it but then he did put a number on it sort of thing so i don't see the yankees leaning heavily on either of those starting pitchers i think their plan is limited. Both of their workloads throughout the season so they can be healthy in september and october. At least that's their plan. That's how they hope it goes. So my prediction is that w garcia is actually gonna start more games than jameson. -ton corey kluber. Debbie garcia will make twenty four starts. Tawil make twenty three starts and corey. Kluber will make seventeen starts. I think mainly kluber will be lowest. Because he will spend some time on the injured list and i think photon it's going to be. They're going to be heavily managing his workload. He's going to get a lot of skip. Start throughout the season. I could see that. I definitely could. I think i think we talked about this. At one point and the way that i had in my head was that tions going to be more of an innings and pitch count per start guy that they're gonna keep an eye on rather than the actual starts because you know when you start skipping starts with a guy like that who's coming back with new mechanics like now you're playing with different different sets of risks. I think by adjusting the days off and All of those things getting out of a rhythm. But i could see on a on a given start like there's a. There's a limit. There's like a a very very hard pitch limit per start. I think that's a little miniature. More wouldn't be surprised if they skip to start here and there. But i think they are already kind of planning on skipping his. I know three days but then lighten how it lines up is. He's not gonna make another start for another seven days so just getting into the season thing. I think you're looking too much into that. But maybe you're wrong in the sense that they're going to manage those two guys for sure right so they hope that kohl's rock that like you said montgomerie takes a huge step forward and can be in every every five days type guy. I think they're just gonna run into the ground. Because what do they have to lose. And then the other two guys. They're going to supplement with garcia and probably bullpen arms. Like michael king nick nelson and louis sesa etcetera starting pitchers to get through one hundred sixty two games. That's not saying yeah. And then severino comes back. And i was talking to him on about him on the on that knicks pod. Yesterday saying that. I wouldn't be surprised if severino came back. And wasn't you know it depends on how the rotation looks like but it wouldn't surprise me if he was added back in and limited input in the bullpen for the end of the year and he becomes a a bullpen peace. And then we look at twenty twenty. Two is him back in the rotation that would not surprise me at all and might play dependent again. depends on the rotation. Looks like when he's ready to get back but it would not shock me at all. If if in there goes your there goes your to acquisition rumor out the window. If now 'cause you you cannot count anything on severino. He's coming back from tommy. John's complete jerry until elections. Gone before you say my predictions gone. Let's actually start the season. What's your final one. My final one. Here we go. I'm going back to the well here. Because i feel like it has to happen. I'm not going one thousand nine hundred though. Because i feel like there's a lot of things that can happen in a season and i'm just not as confident with the pitching staff this year and i think there's some young kids on the orioles that i have no idea about that are going to potentially scratch cross a couple runs and they're gonna take it personally. They're going to take this very personally but seventeen and to to be very clear. Seventeen and two. I don't think they win. More than two games. I still look over at that roster. It's dog shit. Yes there's some young guys that could potentially play. They had some some of the worst team in the division last year. The red sox fine. That's fine the red sox are not going to be the worst team in the division. I don't think i have enough veteran guys where they're going to sneak above them. I think the yankees seventeen and two against the baltimore orioles. I think that when we get back to camden yards is going to be a bandbox glare torres on a on a on a campaign tour again to become the mayor of the king of baltimore once again. They were to see that. I think we're gonna see the Staff again with the baltimore. Orioles is so bad still like they have some young guys but when you start playing one hundred and sixty two games again and you have. The uncertainty of guys are going to look like as the season goes on. They have no depth either there by the by the time. June comes around july post. All-star break they're going to be in deep shit because they are going to be thrown out aa aaa starting pitchers cause the inevitable. Injuries are going to happen. You're going to get into the depth of the orioles and we're going to identify how bad and how thin it is and it's not good at the top either. So i think that the end of the year is going to be very rough for them and i think that the the rest of the american league east offense of these teams is gonna feast off of the orioles pitching and so i think they sneak out to wins at some point maybe early in earlier in the season but seventeen into the reason the yankees went seventeen or two and that was after the first weekend in which they lost two to three back in two thousand nineteen because the orioles gave up on the season. And i don't see. I don't know if that's going to happen. Maybe this is only. Because i just didn't orioles podcast with eric. Eric from barstool where he was a little bit more not high on the team but he liked the fact that they took a step forward in two thousand twenty and they were actually not. They didn't give up on the season. They had some positives like the team felt better about themselves. They also younger. They're young and dumb young and dumb. They're also getting trained seaney back. And he's kind of a veteran leader and he's also an emotional leader because he fought back from cancer and he's beloved in that city and in that clubhouse so i don't even though they're still bad like they're not they're not give up in the second inning kind of team anymore. I don't think so. I don't think it matters. I don't think they have to. I don't take their mentality. Talk does matter in baseball beca
