Mornings with Keyshawn, LZ and Travis (HR 1)

"<music> Good Morning Good Morning Good Morning. How you feeling good man I was GonNa say we still got a key and Travis out on their vacations you and me again l.? Z. Of course Chris went join them. Apparently Chris went and joined them but we brought back roaring trade. I'm so glad that you out. He forgot how to work by rusty this side of the button there you go rusty like Kenta Maeda yesterday. It was all Arado it was going to happen and it did it was going to happen is this is I I mean to me. I didn't really care because when you see the scenario right play the game jumping to play go to different time zone high altitude is just it was set up to happen. Exactly what happened we had the most is lopsided loss of the season and you look at the schedule you go yeah yeah and lopsided it was nine one loss to the rockies Ken to my Ada. Just just four innings seven hits given up six runs five of them were earned and there were more defensive issues <hes> for the dodgers <hes> doc Peterson having some struggles Max muncie having some issues and eventually it led to Jock Petersen in the eighth inning not running out a grounder and Dave Roberts pulling him. Oh yuck out pull jock uphold because he did not think the effort was there. Dave Roberts an Jack Petersen actually after the game agreed with Dave Roberts. I think that <hes> yeah it is unprofessional and let the emotions get the best me and I need to <hes>. I'm better than that. Is the most trusted today. There's no single anything it's a combination of things but yeah he's got to be so sick of playing first first-base really about first base. I think it is though I think to some degree. It's about this or visit outfield. He would run that out. I don't know if he was in the field. He would've been and his frustrated to reach a point where he didn't run the thing out. I mean like this. This is starting to pile up jock. I mean like the idea that he's put in this position essentially to fail fail because there's nobody else to do it and it's like the the teams cushion in the division is sort of being used against Jack Petersen like when it comes to being put first base where everyone knows this isn't what he does and he's not necessarily even doing great. The dodgers can just afford to put him there but he sorted ends up the within boy in the in the process. I don't think he was the whipping boy. I just think that Dave Roberts doesn't want to allow bad habits to seep into this team then. If you allow one thing to sort of happen that's considered unprofessional than at one becomes two two becomes four four becomes eight next you know you've derail rail. What is supposed to be world? Series run. Dave Roberts data right things. Jacques Peterson knows it. Oh Yeah even in the midst of frustration. You still have to do the right thing absolutely so so I'm not I'm not condoning only only the bad team goes at doesn't matter we're going to lose and I know I'm on your team does not condoning <unk> owning doctors say there. There's there is he's back now. I'm not condoning I'm just saying I think that they're related matters. I Dave Roberts did the right thing. You're absolutely correct and you want to make sure that that attitude doesn't end up seeping through the entire clubhouse particular time where the dodgers by their standards standards have been losing more games you know six yeah then then they're accustomed to and it's not the end of the world but you it would not shock me at all all if Peterson is ready for somebody else to be playing I in for him to go back of course of course he probably want that but you know for the sake of this conversation. It's about this one little moment in time in about the timing of when it happened they've lost for six. He was over for for the day. He's frustrated because this isn't his position now he this is not his position he somewhat being embarrassed trying to play that position but he's trying to you know keep his head up and and and be a good teammate and due to think David David ask of him and maybe the frustration they come out but just because the frustration come out just like with Bauer the other day through into baseball out of the freaking you you know you you that I'm going to go on the idea taken that ball and throwing it from the mound in the centre. Yeah I mean I it is listen President Peterson and running out. I feel like a man would have gone all the way I feel like every pitcher right before they leave the game when the managed about to pull them they should take the ball and throw innocent. That'd be great. That'd it'd be awesome and like you get shamed even more if you can't do it yeah what if you only hit the warning track yeah. Oh yeah you should like that. She might you kershaw. You've you've been trading him for years. No no I have not been cleared traders you guys treat. We need to help the bullpen help. Dodgers apparently happen talking talking with the pirates about sleep a vast using nails left <hes> left handed reliever <hes> late inning can also be closer but there is a hold hold up over the prospects of dodgers would have to give up the pirates thus far have been asking for Gavin Lux a highly prized middle infielder and the dodgers gers have said no to that point yeah and this is where it gets. This is where it gets N._B._A.. Ish Yeah Right. Do you trade await Lonzo Ball Josh hard and Brandon Ingram for your version of Anthony Davis though from a town in the commerce accomplishment perspective is not apples to apples the conversation about do you give your youth off that you have a lot of faith in exchange for fixing what you need right now for the hopes of winning a championship this is tough and it's going to me tough for a Lotta dodger fans. 'cause that's key real. We don't know who Gavin luck says. We haven't seen him every day. We don't know what he does. We don't know why he's a valued the way he is so it makes it more difficult for us to say whether or not we should train them. No the main business inside baseball as inside baseball. I was GonNa say and the main thing we know is that the dodgers front office they they covet Gavin lock they cannot he's really good and they've been very good at evaluating talent there this front office does that very well. We've seen it with cody bellinger. We've seen it with core seger. We've seen it with Walker. Bueller like they're good at keeping their is on really good players so if they think they're good there's probably a reason to believe him right but the flipside is going to the world series two years in a row. You haven't went one. You've got a real opportunity in front of you and the bullpen does need addressing and as much of as much as a crapshoot as bullpens can be and guys can can be in and out with their effectiveness. Joe Kelley was awesome in the world series last year and Boston almost left him off the postseason roster. There are certain guys that you know our are great. Philippi Vasquez. You know is great. You know he is yeah. I mean and you know we need an arm. Pride need a couple of hours be quite honest. Yes my condition but we'll hill eventually we don't we don't know what Gavin Lux is. Are we know all STA track record of the Dodgers Front office and you you know you jokingly mentioned the trade for Kershaw her. I wanted to trade for Chris Sale when I talked about Kershaw but they want him bellinger and at the time I was like who cares it's Chris Sale. Get Chris Mad bub-bubba now. It's like Oh Aweso grabby Care Belhadj. I'm glad they didn't listen to me but I hadn't seen balance well. Here's the difference right. I hadn't seen him right you had this is the same thing Gavin Lux could be the next bellinger sir. Here's the thing though I mean the difference to me contractually because you're right I mean a few years ago. I would have said like yeah all right. I mean if you need to give ballengee Nego bellinger because I wasn't as familiar with them either either but the dodgers also didn't have as many young players that that have now become ever gay guys for them like at the time some of this youth they were all in the the minor leagues and you were looking for them to create a foundation. The dodgers now actually have a foundation with some of these young players so at this point you have to start thinking about the idea that you're not going to be able to keep mall anyway waking up with keyshawn and his boys. It's kind of like that milk <music> splashing on your cereal in the morning. Little Jian are from the Terminator two soundtrack. This might have been the last good song. Actually she made. Hey Hey I'm sorry but they went down once once actually started getting on the piano and thinking he was like artists artists. It was a raft at back November rain. Come after this <hes> knows around the same time you will take that back off of this was the this was a round win. Use your illusion. Yeah came out awful now. Those were great job. You don't go from appetite to destruction and talking about all the party and Mister Brownstone and night train to sitting on the piano talking You Baby. That's how you get off the boat Brown what Ellie that's how you go away from Mr Brownstone out at your sensitive. He likes his artists to be arrested development like him. Yes that's what made them guns and roses roanoke diversity lose. Your illusion destroyed mess up their Credit Alaska. It's only maybe why are we playing this own. Gentlemen Happy Birthday Arnold Schwarzenegger and of course this was <hes> to the Terminator to Terminator two which is one of the best sequels ever do sitting in that theater watching that thing with the special effects in that little terminator coming after them. I skip school. I I was in high school. Class went to the pizzeria snuck a whole eighteen inch pizza into the theater in my book bag and crushed. Sometimes you have to fold that thing or we split it in half and was two bags crushed that we crushed phoenix. Hamilton escaped raped wow we we were little later. We'll do we'll bring back a little something called <hes> three to hardaway hard way so it takes some suggestions on the basically the four best Arnold Schwarzenegger films and we gotTa pick three of them. Yeah one of them will be eliminated for for all of time so hit us up on twitter at CAM brothers at L Z granderson and L Z granderson granderson at E._S._p._N.. Los Angeles Raj at Raj groves hit us up with your best for Arnold Schwarzenegger movies and then we're going to combine them together. Semi that hard I know kindergarten cop is going to be it'll be up there. You tend to be only has three really good movies and then a fourth one. We all just got agreed. You know I don't know about that really good movies. Yes they terminator one was. It's not a really good model. Yes it is it is yes. It is not a really good move. That is a great movie. You know why you know only reason why it's great is because he says I three words in it. He's the bad guy he has a bad guy. He was minutes. I'll be back. He was great Predator close total having recall at the time was awesome to recall was pretty the one with the chick they had to the three yes yes. It is the three you got your running man. You got your Predator than he's running. Man was also fantastic about twins wins vacation. That's basically use your illusion. I will not have any more gene are slander all right so there is is perhaps a little bit of feuding going on not just between Ezekiel Elliott and the cowboys Ezekiel Elliott famously wants a new contract. He has been holding out. He has not been apart of cowboys training camp. They're up in Oxnard right now. He is currently in Kabo as Ezekiel Elliott doing his training but Jerry Jones Jones has weighed in on the absence of Ezekiel Elliott who we should remember was last year's rushing champion. Jerry Jones talked about whether or not he is essential essential for being there. You don't have to have a rushing champion to win. A Super Bowl but Emmett was the first one to do it and that's one of the dilemmas running back is that the League knows that you can win super bowls and not have the Emmett Smith back. There are not have Z. back there consequently quaintly when we are looking and putting Zeke's contract in place. We've gotTA realize that the ultimate goal is to win the the Super Bowl and so you've gotta do all of the things along with having Zeke that allow you to have other players so that you can win the Super Bowl. Oh interesting how he starts out by saying that you don't need a Russian champion to win the Super Bowl but then points out Emmett Smith who was a primary reason why they won the last super bowls that they have but he also said he was the first yeah which means a super bozo one before that wasn't point and obviously every every time the Tom Brady hose up a trophy. He's done it without the rushing that is true that is true. I don't think <hes> Aaron Aaron Rodgers had a running back. Since Brett Farve was the starter right a minute. It's been a minute. It's been a minute <hes>. This is hard to argue when he says that on the heels of the N._F._l.. Coming off the least amount of Russia's in the history of his league but what I would say is this yes it is true. You don't need the rushing leader to win the Super Bowl but you need your best player Yes to win. The Super Bowl and the question is is is Ezekiel Elliott your best player take the position out in instead implant the impact it has on the team if Ezekiel Elliot's your best team your best player I would argue that you don't win without your best player only example I can think of the Philadelphia Eagles. If you believe Carson Wentz the best plan to go on to win with Nick folks <hes> that's good. That's good now. I can tell you this by watching obviously being a cowboy fan. He's not only their best paid their most important player cobwebs or built for third and Short Adak third insurance. They're not built for thirty eight thirty seven without Zeke putting yourself in situations and exposes Dak for the average quarterback years. That's about to get elite money for some reason in that's not a good thing for the cowboys I don't I don't know if I agree with with your analysis. I think you're blinded by the fact that you're a cowboy fan and you haven't won since you were in elementary school so you bitter but you're right in the sense of in the past that had not been as effective as you would like. You're starting quarterback to be without without his running going back but always also saying the past Jason Garrett did a Piss poor job of preparing the team to have like without Ezekiel. This is different. Now you've had more time you've had ways to introduce more more elements more wrinkles to your offense but yeah and you have Amari Cooper. You didn't have Amari Cooper before or you were trying to make do with an agent with a deck speaking of Alphabet as a new one of those speaking of Alfred Morris the cowboys going to bring him back cowboys. I'M GONNA sign him right now and Ezekiel Elliott's APPs Nice deal yeah. He's familiar with what they do. Th the cowboys are in a really interesting position because on they got three guys they need to figure out paying in Dak Prescott Ezekiel Elliott Amari Cooper well. I mean that's no different than how you're GonNa Pay Troy Aikman Michael Irvin and Emmitt Smith. I'm just saying like there are three very different contexts. I think in terms of how you would figure out who to prioritize WHO's most important with Dak Prescott. I think I think he's better than average is a quarterback. I think you agree to Raja's a little bit different but everyone would agree. He's respected in that locker. Oh He's a leader. He's definitely a leader and that leadership your ship matters. Yes and it's going to be difficult to find a quarterback who's better than Dak Prescott on the open market and the cowboys are looking to win right now so he he matters in that sense Amari Cooper you gave up a ton to bring him in <hes> so you don't want to end up losing twice by not having that guy around but as you said L Chelsea and I agree Ezekiel Elliott is the best of the three of them however he's also not just because the position is more expendable in today's N._F._l.. He's given you the most reasons to be nervous about committing. He's in Kabul eaten ships GUAC right now well he's training. He's not training and he's drinking Margaritas. Hope there's no idiom festival down mirror because the off the field issues and things he just doesn't get into stuff in New Orleans I mean idea of Ezekiel Elliot going to Kabul to train the joke that writes itself. I mean like like what could possibly go wrong with. Ezekiel Elliott going unsupervised down to Kabo to train where Kabul is a hotbed for N._F._l.. Players I'm sure there's a facility down there. Where am I correct Raj murmuring this isn't that where Tony Romo and <hes> Simpson's yeah isn't that where they went where everyone killed them and you had a bye week and they lost the game him and Witton right yeah they they went down the Kabo and everyone who trained trained trained? Yeah we saw in training on lawn chairs was all photos Jessica Simpson right. It was pretty big justice but he's he I remember remember. Everyone used to kill him. Just for Dayton Jessica Simpson fourteen in two year. I believe they had the bye week and came back and proceeded to lose the game at home. Of course everyone blamed it on Kabul and Jessica Simpson and Romo cobbles undefeated Romo's laws but I mean like if you're in the cowboy front office the idea of Zeke being down in in Kabul to train. That's that's the front office if you're a member of Zeke's team and you're trying to get your client paid why in the Hell L. Are you putting him in position to not be successful. If you're trying to convince the cowboys that one you've matured and change to that you're you're going to be ready to rock and roll as soon as soon as we signed a new contract and I guess we're going next week. Guys were going to Goto O._C.. That's right ASSOC- weeks and make sure you join us for E._S._p._N.. O._C. Week starting on August fifth. I believe that's money if I look at my calendar in an outdoor O._C.. Live remotes. That's where we get lit which all we have <hes> we put them in the air. Do shot chart shots and it's your chance to win an Anthony Davis this number three Jersey you see behind guys got got jerseys all behind you. More gives the net but you must be present to win so for a complete list of our E._S._p._N.. AC- events follow us on twitter instagram and facebook at E._S._p._N.. Los Angeles the morning show better much better. You feel more banger. This is what I'm talking about big baby due to do. That's a strange mix. I think it went. I was thinking going together. Naturally you're been this is my mom my seat that this move Hori on ever who's your who's your strolling intro for you made the move now says aw man. I've not heard this in a long time as a reason for it happy birthday Paul Anka seventy seventy seven years old must be nice to have an iconic song like this yeah seventy. Seven people still know that song people still remember this. It's like people like him. Barry manilow like Neil diamond diamond well neil diamond had more hits and I guess Barry Manilow had more hits like I don't know how much much I don't really know how much Paul Anka had I just remember this one more. I looked at Lenny Kravitz what you don't know about that that one but no use your illusion three nothing like that but he's got a couple. I looked at I recognize it. Let's see here Paul Anka seventy seven years old <hes> what else <hes> you are my destiny and Diana dirty dirty Diana Rachel yeah original dirty Diana and he wrote the music for Tom Jones including including his biggest hit. She's a lady Oh. He's a he's a Les Hacen Most Oh and guess what he also did with Michael Jackson. I never heard Diana. No I never heard he remixed Diane. What is IT I? I never heard the name of it so I don't think it did hurt so he did some things things man he does. You know doing some things from Ottawa Canada my my parents. My parents probably still go see Paul Anka. If given the opportunity of Paul Anka rolled in Saint Saint Louis. My parents probably would still Easter with US correct. Yes okay. Let's see here make sure trust to run down. Just a run down Raj Dot Com all right so Anthony Davis vis recently went up okay. You said how old he is. Seventy seven ish ways the he seventy run down. He says I was GonNa say what's your in that range come on. Does it matter it matters to Paul Anka. He's alive one thirty seven. Something's messing. No I mean I remember when my grandfather on my dad's side <hes> before or eventually end up passing but I remember every time I asked him. You know how you doing. Grandma is responsible is being still alive like once you get to that age like every single day a is like some. It's like a matter of principle you WANNA point out. I'm still here at once you get in your late seventies or eighties like you WanNa make sure everyone knows you're still alive. Have you seen seen it on his wife. Paul Anka's wife. You heard me know Lisa Pemberton pimpernel <hes> her last name is Pinkerton P. E. M. B. E. R. T. O. N.. Okay are they said Pinkerton Pinkerton Twenty Sixteen Paul. Anka wants to garage a little bit longer. Anka definitely wants to be alive. I have no he's not trying to check out early. How who good for Paul Anka so Anthony Davis was on Sarah Sarah Spain's podcasts and he hit on a variety of topics but the most basket Bali was the question of championships over the course of his career? He's famously only been to the playoffs twice only been into the second round once and he addressed the idea of what it would mean if he never won a championship over the course of his career a failure that I've had <hes> yeah <hes> obviously you know in my career. I don't win a championship that it'd be awfully as one of my biggest failures but right now I still you'll have a lot to do and where you know on and off the court so I don't think I felt anything you know I think I just <hes> do it over and said you know concede that. Do we put too much. Do you think like as far as judging success or failure with careers. Do you think we put too much. Championships like as opposed to just judging aging how you actually played in your career. I would say that the hypertension tours championships defining hypertension hyper hypertension kills me hypertension. <hes> I would say at that focus was really something happened like in the eighties or whatnot yeah back in the day when you still have the A._B._A.. N._B._A. Involved I think we really valued or just enjoy watching guys ball and then all of a sudden the focus came in on championships defining whether or not you are successful plan was really it was the George vacation of the N._B._A.. In a Lotta ways sports like my I think Michael Jordan you know with those six championships and being undefeated in the finals in particular regular and everybody forgetting about all the time where he couldn't even get to the finals and everybody forgetting like there was a period where people questioned whether or not Michael Jordan win like it seems insane insane now but that that happened a lot yeah. Julie actually started winning right because it was about whether or not he could play in a team like you could. He left him a team Yada Yada Yada but but Anthony Davis I would say his career would be a failure only in a sense of when you call call your own shot the way that he has. You're putting a target on yourself. When you go to your front office or your age and go to the front office and says I want to be traded and I want to be traded here and you disrupt the structure of one franchise an-another another under under the guise of I'm trying to win then when you get your wish you Betta come through otherwise? What was that all four well he didn't he didn't just disrupt one France right? That's disrupted too. So what is what does it all for and argue you know three and a sense of what other pieces had to be moved before that as a result of what he did so when you make that kind of shy call you gotta come through especially when you linked up with someone in conversation of greatest of all time so you force your way out of New Orleans to shoehorn yourself onto a team team that has some want still very much and you know it's on the back end but still very much in his prime who's in a conversation greatest of all time if you do all of that and you don't know what the chip at the end of the day the yeah I would consider that a failure is l z secretly doing a morning show on some some other radio station. We explore the answer coming up next on the morning show guys. We've got some movement in the polls. That's what happens when the post going well. It's not really a poor but it's a question at Andy knows <hes> because we're going to do three to hardaway later in the best three on all sorts of movies but the ones that are getting the votes are total recall Terminator One and two we have to decide between them to the running man and Predator but then in an honorable mention is a kindergarten cop getting some votes here. I'm dead serious various. It's cute. It's cute for what it is. I guess it's not Arnold top four top. Four Arnold movie movie true lies was really July's fun okay Kinda. You know what else is fun. No I'm still waiting for it to show up. What did we want to help you? Can you can bring it over. Yeah sure well. The first one is I can't get no satisfaction but you set it up. Well no bring like do you have any your phone. Just bring it over yeah but then you get to see my phone. I bring my computer to thank you you mean it's not clear there's technical difficulties with L Z accessing list for some live I I sent last night but I sent her a on my screen writing computer which is Exactly exactly I was such a computer screen writing anyway in case you didn't know this week history was made. Oh alone breaks director we seventeen weeks atop the billboard hot one hundred dude. It cannot be overstated how much the popularity already of that song is being propped up by elementary school kids all over this country. I have an eight year old daughter. She's obsessed with that song. Her friends <music> are all obsessed with it. She wants a Porsche. Now wants to pour. She can't tell her nothing no. She's actually asked me about getting a Porsche because of that song because that's all she'd never heard of a Porsche Dylan where what's worse. Let go with the Song Oh <hes> who go spend in a lot of time in our household. I'm sure it did well anyway. Supplanting Mariah Carey and Boyz to man that has sixteen weeks a number one as well as d'esposito but I decided to try to be super duper oprah ambitious and put together my top ten list of the all time iconic number one songs at a hell of an undertaking man. It's a hell of an undertaking. It was a lot of scotch involved. I would think I'm just gonNa tell you right now. I screwed up okay because there's always going to be an argument for something. Coming in at number ten is rod says I can't get no satisfaction by the rolling stones. It's an iconic song. I don't think it's their best but it's iconic. It's not the best and that's important. It's not the artist's best song as not even a great song necessarily but its impact on society and the trajectory actually of music history cannot be denies lutely absolutely coming in at number nine Billie Jean by Michael Jackson. What are you gonNA play that normally complete? Oh you gotta songs. You didn't have your list ready this yesterday. He's got a song list on different phone your <hes>. She got comeback in here this come on man computer. I know what it did. He's got like a computer something so <unk> Billie Jean to some people may be considered low on this list but if you consider Michael Jackson Star was already pretty well established by the time the song came out when you think about the fact that it wasn't the first single off thriller and you think about the fact that when people think about Michael Jackson thriller I what was the first single off <hes> through. I remember girls. That's fine. That was the first thing first thing was the girl is mine. Yes really the first thing N._p._R.. Number two boy man they did it really really. I was gonna say that sounds like a mistake but I guess I was wrong. If it got the number two all within this is icon I was going to say this is iconic just from the video along with with the squares here's lighten up on the sidewalk absolutely and then of course the Moonwalk yes yeah when he performed it during the motown twenty five yes I mean introducing the moonwalk a it really however problematic Michael Jackson may be now can't deny what this was number eight is hound dog now most people think of the Elvis Presley cover of it which is true but this is being recorded more than two hundred times call perkins that the Yes what a two hundred times this song has been covered and I think he was on us. You're losing too as a matter of fact everyone has gotten to the number. Seven is like a virgin by Madonna the it's not our best. No it is it is not our best Saul however when you think about where we were society back in nineteen eighty four one thousand nine hundred eighty five do just the MTV video awards performance of this yes deliver the first award for the video awards she performed like a virgin and a wedding dress yeah and oh by the way thanks to now Rogers still hose up because of the baseline that's pretty good. He is inaccessible everybody everybody by the way Lindsey Buckingham Making big time comeback the point is it had to be come back. You guys thought it wouldn't be close. I think I one number six bridge over troubled water. Yeah just absolutely who you choose to Aretha version nice work we know now as originally done by Simon and Garfunkel but obviously like hound dogs been recorded by everybody in their Mama. aretha Franklin says one of the more or I kinda that's GonNa be tough to like when you already have a really good version and then aretha desserts and you're like all right. It's better to reversal you said are you guys I still from us. We stole from you for coming in at number five. I will always love you by Whitney Houston. It's hard to deny not by her though not her version okay yes atention. No one pays attention to pardons version. Even though obviously karate pardon is the author of the code the writer of one of the most beautiful breakup songs. I think no it's actually Dolly Parton Song Yeah. Your people knew Arosh. People is the biggest country fan. We have your number four the twist yes. Let's do that connick. You know why does something so iconic. Why why because you know it was released in a fifty fifty part about is the follow up on the song? Let's let's twist again. The fat boys did their version of the check around the bad boys. Yes yeah this song is like almost sixty years old and you know it yeah and you know it yeah. I hate to minute but you're right. I mean one one of the things that make iconic songs iconic. Obviously it's a longevity of it and speaking of longevity. I double dog dare you to go to any championship any in wedding and not here number three. I mean it's not their past. This is the anthem of the one thousand nine hundred cardinals when they win. The world. Series is the anthem period. It's so good this is when you think about we are the champions and you know we will rock you and all the the favourite sort out of sports anthem songs out there to only I can think of that could be heard at an arena and New York City and a wedding and Mobile Alabama is a celebration. Your credit is not cool gangs best but it's really good. It's translates and a lot of different uses absolutely number two. She's back. <hes> Aretha Franklin giving me a little reminds me of the Blues Brother's four fried chickens and a coke. I think we've said it wants you said it a thousand times may not necessarily be her best <hes> but everybody knows our he is not in writing song talked about and he said like she she took it from him in basically made it better which Otis redding by the way yeah he didn't have much help you know and then the number one most iconic number one song by the Beatles as Dedi car yesterday. I believe this is the most covered song ever it very good. Actually there's like against Christian yeah like it's officially the most covered song ever like the interesting thing about trying to put together. Such an ambitious list is that there's so many iconic songs that actually didn't peaking number one like I wanted to put imagine on this list but imagine pete that number three. I gotTa tell the number one did a pretty good job with this. He likes you came in saying what he did it well. This is actually pretty good considering how hard it was. It was very very hard. How hard was it? It was so tough I went through almost a half butterscotch Scotch. I could see this way. You can't find a list. I wrote it on my screen. Writer compute probably won't be able to fund Peter to either Josh and the O._C.. Wants wants to weigh in on <hes> Arnold's best come to visit us. Josh Neo see Oh yeah. I'm here in the N._F._C.. I'm surprised you guys have not mentioned Terminator Thirty those remember the girls get enhance and stuff and then we have arnold right there like unhugged <hes> pity duty Arnold Christmas comedy action.

Mason and Ireland HOUR TWO

"As Thomas Rhett. Mason Ireland ESPN LA Momo's here. Lot of labar slash Lonzo slash big baller. News today as Alan foster, a close, and in once trusted member of the big baller brand has essentially allegedly stolen one point five million dollars that nobody can account for and joining us right now as Moore ISSA Mitchell who started as lavar ball's publicist, and now has written a brand new book about her experience Mercer. Thanks very much for coming on. How are you? Great. Thank you for having me on. Absolutely. So tell us how you I wound up working for lavar. Well, he trained me when I was younger. I was a aspiring basketball player and grew up dumb street from him. So we actually were neighbors and grew up together along with the family, and I reach out to him when his son kind of a Sunded to stardom having kept in contact with him, my father and is throughout the years. Our families having kept close contact together. And so I asked him if he wanted a book written about him, and he he was very excited. So what started out as a as an authorized biography later on became an unauthorized by okay? Unauthorized. What was your experience like working for lavar? Well, what initially was a writing job turned into a publicist job in kind of a catchall. I became their website creator the person who trademarks I big baller brand along with various other things and just worked directly under Allen doing basically, whatever he wanted me to do under the the verbal comment which having known lavar and his family for years over a decade. I took him at his word, which I knew Cam with the risk that I would be paid later on. And I never was. So I kind of just was left with this entire written book as well as many months of full time work for him done. And and kinda just kinda fumbling about not knowing. Knowing what to do so Mursal. One of the things that I thought was interesting about your book and just how you described the beginnings of the company and how it started. You actually created the website. Like there wasn't like a big t- signer or business operation like how did you actually create the big baller brand website that then started selling the shoes and merchandise? Well, Ellen just hold me. You know, I mean, I had had very minimal experience at that time. I mean minimum. Meaning I've literally just worked with legally. So he he told me it's not a big thing. You're an intelligent woman figure it out. And that's what I did. I learned how to put together website on my own and build a shop by site and on my own countless call to shop aside as their e commerce site for their shoes. And I figured it out. And that it was just that was just how it was. You know, like, we're we're building from the ground up in your part of our family, and and you're gonna come with a near going gonna go with us. And and I I took them for for that. And I believe everything and and Allen was really director of of all of the of the brand. So I did whatever he said, including Cresa website. We ever paid for anything. You did for the ball family. Time and Sakai with I had incurred costs through the website and getting domains and better. So how did they describe to you like when you would be paid or how this was going to work? You know, my my mom being attorney. She's like, well, we know we've known lavar fears that you really shouldn't not signed a contract. So I I really I really knew that I taking risk here and met the I own this. But, but he pulled me him an Allen full me that, you know, just just take out a word, you're part of this family. You are a part of the family. We we we will stand by you, no matter what. And we will. We will pay you in retro active pay for all of the time that you've full-time all the time that you spend not just for your publicist work. But also for writing the book. Bruce Mitchell is with us. She is written. We Ballin what I learned from lavar ball and the basketball business and bravado. The book is available and out there right now. So Meriva, by the way, you're listening to Caspian Los Angeles, Melissa tell me about the relationship and the timing that took place when Tina lavar wife had her stroke, and the way Alan would have gotten involved at that point. We really filled avoid when it came to what happens with Tina. And and I don't mean that in a positive way. I mean, I don't think anything would have transpired the way that it had had peanut not undergone what she she underwent. She he was a pivotal part and still is, but she's a little part of of that foundation of the ball family, and and when not not pillar was compromised, Allan moved in. And and and basically. I don't wanna see took power. I mean, I mean, but, but that's kind of almost what what it seemed like in in my book, lavar is neither good nor bad. If if there's any antagonist any anyone who who who's really in on the negative aspect of it is Alan he he as soon as Tina kind of Hake takes her false. He comes in. And he he takes over. When you were working for Alan. Did you have a sense that something just wasn't right? I mean, you didn't. I I'm guessing you weren't aware that he had served seven years in prison for mail fraud and money laundering. Of that, definitely. And I described in my book, like, even you know, he gave my dad that he sees the first time he met him. And and gave me he would not in. But how do you how do you pinpoint quality? And and they this is what I don't like about a person when someone that you trust as as a family member, you know, just just completely and utterly trust. Not you know, maybe. And I talk about this on the book. Maybe it's me. That's what I thought. I'm like, maybe I'm judging the person because if lavar puts his trust in person, and I trust lavar wholeheartedly than I'm be the one that's not understanding him. You know? But, but of course, they're always moments. And I talk about that on the book where I just really questioned like, and I always there's these red flags, and I just always ignore them. I know them, lavar. Would you say he's a victim of Allen foster? I think the last thing of would like to be labeled at victims weird weird even saying it but did did Alan foster play them. I think that there are it wasn't unfortunate set of circumstances that lavar himself terms of devastating for a reason. And and then yes, an offense. I do I do think I do think that. Yes. Mersa what when they were asking you to create the website and just figure it out. What background? Did you have like did you say, I don't really know how to do this? I know you went to UCLA. Right. So you have a college degree. But did you have any background in technology and business design, especially for something that was going to be a revolutionary thing in the in the shoe industry? No, I I was really forthright within two I told them, look, I'm very I'm less than an amateur in this department. You know, I have everything to learn almost nothing to give you other than, you know, my my time, I think you my time, and you know, my willingness and they said Allen, you know, said we'll take it. You know, whatever you can do we will take. And that's what I did. And I had I had to I haven't degree in English literature. You know, I don't know. I don't know, you know, a lot about technology to begin with didn't even know much about, you know, Instagram at the time. So I mean or Twitter or anything, you know. So so, yeah, I very forthright with them. I had no experience. You said you knew lavar because you were neighbors lived up the street at some point. How did lavar change from? Who he was when you first met him to who he became. You know, I part of the book is about. What happens to a person it kind of in this society? When when everything is is that happens to a person that happens to lavar happens to them, and and lavar he was just a straight shooter clear glass, just did everything he said, and I think that the the water simply muddy the little, and I don't think that that's necessarily all his faults. I think that losing a loved one to a serious illness. And and and you know, just and and the power and the money and everything it it may have an did change. And as it would most people I I saw a shift in him. And it was always around, Allen's it was always around this idea of of the bigness of it all of the greatness of it all of getting bigger and bigger and less about. Out, you know, just simply getting on the NBA because when I was growing up it was all about getting on the NBA became a little less transparent, a little less just just 'cause all our our nothing. Just it just became just unclear what what he wanted. I I don't know. I don't know if he's he wants now, you know, I used to know who he was and what he wanted. Now. I just don't know the book is called Rebollo, and what I learned from lavar ball in basketball business, bravado, Mercer Mitchell. Thank you very much for coming on. We appreciate it a lot. Thank you so much for having me. There you have that story. I yeah, I'm surprised. I was actually asking the question. Do you think lavar was victim of this Alan foster guy? But it sounds like he did it play. Okay. If you wanna go with that wrong with it. I mean, if he did not know this guy was you know, had had previous charges that he went to prison mail fraud. I mean, it sounds like this guy was a bit of a snake getting into this family and sort of ingratiating himself filling a void as she said. After lavar wife, and lonzo's mom Tina had the stroke and then allegedly stealing one point five million dollars from the company. I want to do something a little bit different here. So there's a bunch of stuff today about Jason Kidd, and whether he might be the next head coach of the Lakers. So it starts with a tweet from whoa JR. From ESPN kid will be among the serious candidates for the Lakers coaching job. If Luke Walton is dismissed league sources, tell ESPN that's expected to give give kids some pause on pursuing the cow opening. There was some backup on this. Marc spears kind of chimed in and said that was what he was hearing as well. Brian Windhorst said that in two thousand nine LeBron one of the Cavs to trade for Jason Kidd because of a fast friendship and on court bond, they formed in two thousand eight so it makes sense. The James would wanna work with someone who he considers appear in basketball intellect. Does that make sense to you Ramona Shelburne? I could see him get an interview. I could see there be discussions. But I think it's far more likely that if Luke Walton ends up being fired that he's not the coach going forward that Jason Jason is not going to get the job. Yeah. It's far more likely that he doesn't. Okay. But I can see him getting. I think the Lakers if they choose to move on from Luke Walton, which I guess, we'll know and if you weeks, right, right? That you know, that's a name that has voting out. And we'll Santa as well. I will just say this. I mean, I think we all know what's going to happen with Luke. I think we all know I mean, and he's he's a great guy. Love the guy. He was dealt. I think you and I had the conversation. He was dealt a terrible hand this year, by the way, you know, when we had that conversation. We said Luke was Dell to seven off suit at starts talking about poker. And now we're working on a poker tournament for June poker invitation was coming up in June. But it all started right there. Why June 'cause like I really free up in July well at because the NBA final because for us. We don't have the playoffs. We don't have the Lakers in the playoffs. I get it. So we got a bunch of stuff coming up. Like, we got our opening day party Thursday, clermont's galleon San Gabriel. We've got Ireland playing head to head with Travis. Rodgers golf on the opening day of the masters. We've got my movie screening with vendors game on April the twenty fifth. We've got some we've got the poker tournament. We're working on on a bunch of stuff simultaneously to make up for the fact that we don't have anything positive to say in terms of the Lakers. You know, I was thinking about this Mace last year at this time was kind of similar what's the record this year versus last year at this time thirty well this year, they're thirty one and thirty six and last year, they won thirty five thirty five games last. So how many more games there in the season years this pop quiz? No. But do the question is will they went as many or more or low? Yeah. Last year. Yeah. That's a good question question. Right. Let's talk about that next. Mason Ireland Momo's in for Johnny SPN LA. ESPN LA. What are you guys doing? Don't forget Thursday. Clermont's galley and San Gabriel. Opening day with Mason Ireland. That's this coming Thursday eleven am to three pm. We'll be live watching dodgers opening day with you. They do have spectrum there. See if you don't have spectrum at your house.

Join us March twenty eighth that's this Thursday at clear men's galley in San Gabriel moments. Are you making the trip you come into Clemence galley? What day is it Thursday? Come on. Do it do it. That's really far from me. Do it. You know, call and good you. It's kind of far for me if it was like down the street or something, by the way, the dodgers rotation. At least for the start of the season is officially set the official home of real dodger Todd in John ru opening day. Ross stripling Kenta Maeda Walker. Buehler. Who is thrown a five inning sim game. I think it's today in Anaheim Clayton Kershaw by the way throwing a two inning sim game today in Anaheim. And then Julio Arrhenius will be the fifth starter Kershaw is nursing himself back to health working his way back. He's as I mentioned sim game today and Walker bueller. Sim games. Walker? Bueller will be ready to start game. Four Richhill starts the year on the injured list with a left knee, medial, collateral strain. He'll probably miss a few weeks. Thankfully, the dodgers. Are they've got a lot of starting pitching a lot. Starting pitching. Yeah. That's kind of how they've played it down whole time depth away. Look, I'm not a, you know, I'm not saying I am a great fantasy baseball general manager. Right. I did cut a call him. My uncle for some help last year. And he was going to say your okel won the league. Let me let me we did it. Let me explain this. So that people can understand Ramona is in my fantasy baseball league started in nineteen eighty eight. Is that crazy? That's amazing. It's and it's they're still like five players from nineteen Eighty-eight Ramona. When did you first get into the fantasy baseball league, I want to say three or four years ago three or four years, and you were awful. No, I finished like I finished third once before on my own did you? Yeah. Really? Yeah. I really did. I remember you being awful. I think you are out of it. I think I was awful one time because I drafted like over the phone as I was going to a playoff game because. Is your league has the draft. So late it's into the playoffs that I couldn't destroy person. And so like I had a draft of the phone when I missed the first two hours because I was flying Denver and. Yeah. Oh, so you're saying that's the only time where you you were the one time I was and also I was really busy that year doing something like traveling in the playoffs, and I did not make enough moves early ringer Oncle because his name, Phil. Because Phil because the draft again was in the middle of the first round of the playoffs because all of your buddies. Can't you're doing even the phone. I see I was covering the Phil drafting your team. Yes, we claim. No. But then I on the league. But I did all of the a lot of the managing during the year. We were a team. That's what a team is is. I can't be there in person because your buddies couldn't get their act together to get in the same place to do the draft. So you before like two weeks of the season started be a Kohner of a team. I know I just can I understand. We have a new co ownership. Situation coming in their heard and OJ Jackson junior. Who by the way, drafted a great team. The holy moly night. Yeah. And she's going to be a ringer in this league. So Molly, I talked to about this. I you know, how this happened. I said, you know, everybody wants you to play in this league. Because you know, I'm kind of busy. I've never done this before. But I'll you know. I I don't know if I wanna draft or pay all the money to be in this league, if I'm not really sure what I'm doing. But I'll consult okay. It's kind of like how I consulted on a basketball league once team won like okay because you're a ringer, Molly. Because you know, the way I base it OJ's probably gonna do the a bulk of the drafting because he was good. He was good. And then knowledge going to be an excellent, man. That's right. That's probably how it's gonna that's kind of what happened with me. And my uncle we were literally on the phone every single night the last six weeks of the season making moves and strategizing moves while I was like super pregnant like I was like eight or nine months pregnant at that point. And I was like hoping I didn't give birth before the last night of the regular season. We had to decide if we're going to pick up another holds guy, right like, Daniel waited. So that I could win the league very did very nice house baby baby. Almost six months. And you were forcing the kid to stand. I saw on. I'm like lavar ball leaning on like go, Katie. Or shouldn't. We got we got to learn how to stand what we can walk hall kid. I'm holding onto the to the table can hold himself. So he can stand himself well with by holding onto the table. Well, that's I standing that's really good. I mean, if I moved his arms right handed left handed. I can't tell yet. I think lefty because he always bites his left hand is that right Cam hoping left-handed pitcher stardom starting put a put a baseball on his hand. I'm trying I told you I was going to get that kid to walk at six months close. All right. So anyway, the whole reason I brought that up the depth of the pitching rotation. That's what you have to do. It's not about having like two or three stars. It's about having depth brushing death because shirt you understand what this. Changing right? Changing subjects. I went to see a movie on Friday. Which movie us? Oh. It terrified me. I I honestly I texted a couple of people afterwards and said, I was terrified if terrified it traumatize me. I really do think it traumatize me. It is so good. It is so scary. It is so creepy and by the way, it's also about something. I don't wanna I don't wanna say. Yeah. Too much because a lot of it mean, it did seventy million over the weekend, and and performed an unbelievably through the roof a lot of people haven't seen it. So I don't wanna spoil it for for you. But ultimately, it's going to be a great thing to talk about. It's like people with scissors, and yeah, you're d'appel ganger. And what you what you do when you meet your d'appel ganger. Oh, it's crazy. I'm a little scared. Mess with me. It's going to mess with you. But in a good way. Okay. I don't know if I'm ready to be messed with busy. I was from ties by this. So do you do that to you not your birthday movie? It was it was not my birthday do that. Because you know, I'm doing the new podcast oh with sue clinched gaffe. And so that's going to be one of the first things we do is talk about the movie us and the very first podcast. It's called culture pop will drop tonight. Very first one cool. Yeah. It's going. I'm excited about that. Yeah. Soom or than me. I like everyone like where would she be on your co host ranking? Oh, that's a tough tough question now. Well, she'd be pretty high. Yeah. She'd be pretty not as famous O'Shea or Freddie, you'd think I'm just hunting wjm. I'm not hunting fame. I think you're drawn to it. Like a moth rule light really think. So that's not me. I remained unimpressed. Well, I think your rankings demonstrate that will you're you're famous and you're not even in my ranks. So if I was looking for pure fame, I would put Ramona near the top near. Near those hedges. Exactly. All right. Rob gronkowski has retired for him. But maybe he's not officially done says agent. We'll get that coming up for you next. Mason in Ireland ESPN LA. Hey, what's going on Momo's in for John, by the way, mythical money bets over the money with three for four? I lost on liberty versus Mississippi State under the one thirty two but under the one thirty nine five Ohio State, Iowa State was Oregon plus two over Wisconsin was the winner. Buffalo, minus five and a half overs state was a winner. So I was up five mythical k I I mean, I would like to start gambling for real. I think you're kinda good. I've played poker with you. I think you're kinda got I would like to officially start gambling only problem with being somebody known as a good gambler or predictor or something that when you give advice on things. Yup. And then people take your advice, they blame you. It doesn't. Work out. Right, right. They get upset you. 'cause I way with you on that do pick, and you cost me fifty thousand dollars. And you're like, I didn't tell you to put fifty thousand tone, anybody to do anything honest with you. You know, what's a dime in betting ten something? Ten ten dollars. Yeah. So we came across I won't say his name an actor k when we were doing on Fox Sports. And he said I dropped a lost a dime on a game. I immediately thought holy hell. You're betting ten thousand a game which the largest Michael Pearson's in for Greg. Greg check, Michael what's the largest bet you've ever made. I'm so cheap. Dude. I would say probably one hundred hundred bucks, mama. Include stuff on the poker table. Oh, okay. What's the most? You've ever had a poker tournament real money in real money. Okay. Is this when I started with or when I built up to build up to okay? Couple thousand. Yeah. I've been in the thousands of Fokker, but not until I was up 'cause I played at tournament where if one it would have been like six or seven grand, right? But I if finished, and I I won like twelve hundred or something. Yeah. I wanna tell you a story. It was like the buying was for you know, it's kinda here. This is what I consider to be just crazy. So Duke was a heavy favorite. Yep. Against UCF university of central Florida yesterday. The game went absolutely down to the wire. And the ultimately there was one guy who made an enormous bet on the money line. Enormous bet on the money line. In fact, he bet fifty thousand dollars my gosh on Duke. And it was a straight up money line bet. So you know, what that means? It means that he to win forty five hundred and forty five dollars. He bet fifty thousand on the money line. So think about that I'm gonna put fifty thousand Duke to win the game while the money line is minus eleven hundred any only one forty five hundred dollars. Now, what is that terrible? That is the pointers point. That's like the worst gambler ever fifty thousand dollars is a terrible terrible bet to win forty five hundred. There's no stakes there the guy, and I have a lot of money, and it's just sport. Yeah. That's what that is. That's what that is that if you have fifty thousand dollars to waste on a bet like that to win less than fat literally has that means you probably have like fifty million dollars to bed in your pocket. Probably vol money. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I hope it somebody like that or flame weather because other. Yes, you're on the money team. That's that's another way to like. Oh, I lost. My earring my diamond earring in fell out of my ear. I should just go buy new one. Right. That's like that guy. And this is that his hair of some pretty stunning. Wow. No, it's one in five Quinton. The odds of getting every game in the tournament. Right. Has anyone ever done on his ever done? No one is ever done every single game. But there is one NC double A tournament bracket right now. That is perfect. Wow. And the first time ever somebody is undefeated through to two rounds? We never person is. Let's see do have his name. All we know is his bracket challenge name, which is center road center road, whoever that is his final four. And by the way, once you get through the first what is thirty two games. Wait a minute thirty two. And then another whatever it is the first two rounds. Once you get through that. And actually gets a lot easier. Right. He got the hardest part of the back. Right. The only thing that's hard is if you is if the real upset start going through like Oregon's twelve seed, okay? I don't really consider oriented Cinderella there from the pack twelve they went to the final years ago or twenty twelve eighth. Yeah. But like, let's say they would have lost to Irvine Irvine is in the Sweet Sixteen and it's still and it's really hard. Yeah. Then it's really hard to start getting those like last year. There was actually some people who had loyal of Chicago member. Never loyal. I do and the non where's the none? The lucky none. Yeah. Wouldn't lucky? The sister, gene. As I told you it's like survivor, the bachelor, I don't even remember who the bachelor was about her sister Jean. I wanna know who sister Jean has this year who's her brackets? Yeah. I you I don't know how to react to sister Jeanne. But that would be she's gotta be on Twitter. I'm sure your sister Jean on Twitter. She is. Yeah. I tell you the one thing and two years ago. I finished second last year. I wanted all this year. I'm leading everybody. Me. I don't have a system. I don't tell me. I don't know what I'm doing here. I know my way around brag the thing by a humble BRAC. I don't even this is a humble brag about myself. I write I'm impressed. Like, honestly, I'm humbly bragging I picked completely off the top of my head, right? This year because I did not have time to do that research and you're even by fourth or fifth right now. That's good with your system. That is well honed in me with off the top of my head are like a couple of games different. To make you feel good or bad makes me feel good. I'm winning. I'm winning once said to me this weekend. Why here why don't you stop looking at your brackets? I'm like, you don't understand this is we are betting. We are gambling. We are. It's I'm competitive anytime. There's like in our fantasy basketball league right now. Georgia's in it. I've now got an eight point lead on George Flint. Yup. Excellent. Only goes to George how you work in basketball. Yup. Because I see it in basketball. I'm sorry baseball. Yup. Because in the summer in less, I'm in it. Like, let's say I'm in the top, you know, like close to the money, right? The top three places. I kinda you know, I I play, but I'm not, you know, down to the wire every single night picking up guys to try to pick up on a wire every ninety minute the N last year, and you were still beating me out for players on the waiver wire up until the last few days. I'm like LeBron. I'm not going to cheat the game. Yeah. Yeah. I'm not gonna cheat the respect that I respect it c- respecting while LeBron's doing. I thought he was gonna shut it down last week. I did too. I thought that might be it. And instead he went out and has triple double triple double there. Thanks. Here's what LeBron James said. Just my love of the game. You know, not to myself, you know, and obviously, you know, you know, with the fans continued on the show up even over noon. I know we're not making the playoffs. You know, by me on it to myself on a McAfee gives to our fans when I'm out on the floor. So you're not just appreciate him continuing to show up, and and they are still showing up. And did you see his Instagram post where you say I'll tell you about it next Mason Ireland Momo in for Johnny ESPN LA. I s panel Mason Ireland Papa was a Rolling Stone. There's a Papa in the news today. It is lavar ball Momo who's filling in for John has broken. A major story about lavar ball and a guy named Alan foster who worked his way into the family into a circle of trust. And ultimately allegedly may have taken one point five million dollars out of the company. So Lonzo ball belief that he issued a statement to that effect in the story that we wrote on Friday night one is financial planner guy. Humble, the conga conga pointed it out, right? So the way this unfolded is that over the course of, you know, the inter doctors I've seen looks like this took started taking place since last April that the warnings started coming the warnings really escalated around. October when Lonzo had already filed for an extension on his taxes, and the financial visor says, we really got a sort through this money that can't be accounted for because if you file tax return. And you can't account for this that you're you're you're gonna be in trouble. Right. And so rather than fire that tax return this financial advisor resigned right because he can't ethically. Do that right in this guy on foster is a guy who has a criminal record went to prison on mail fraud and money laundering charges then came out of prison changed his name slightly. He was we know him now is Alan foster, but his real name is Gregory Alan foster. There was just you know, when we tried to background him several times over the years, which you would always do with somebody in a story. Like, we're doing a cover story on lavar ball, Lonzo ball and starting of the big baller brand. Right. So Alan foster was lavar lavar said one of the guys who talked to talk to him about taking big baller from just t shirts and the slogan doing. This on their own, right? And part of the height machine that started around Lonzo. When he first started was lavar turning down Nike and Adidas and claiming I wanna billion dollars for my three sons because they're all going to the NBA. And that was a lot of the those sort of delusions of grandeur appears now, right? Have not come to pay come to bear. Right. They the three basketball playing sons don't look like they're all going to be in the NBA looks like lonzo's guy. Yup. And lamelo about lamelo playing spire institute in Ohio. He's gone to Lithuania. He's dropped out. Lithuania thing now seem so misguided that whole J B L thing. Mass J A that seems like it was just agree that there's a lot of there's there's I think there's a couple of lawsuits against them for not paying players. They even cover that in the Facebook show. So what I reported on them last year? I was actually pretty surprised by how much money and impressed really by how much they were making in the Facebook show. They were making several millions of dollars and the show did. Well, a lot faced. Yeah. It had views. They get like a million downloads on every episode. So there's there's obviously a lot of interest in it. But I wonder what this entire thing. Now does to lavar in his relationship with Lonzo. And again, I'll say Stephen used the term estranged today on when he was on the get up, and you would say you think estranged tomato. But it's but it's in the neighborhood. I know that. The family has been talking in meeting, and lavar, obviously if you read the story on Friday issued a statement saying family comes first and I support zone is decision. You know, I trusted Alan foster to manage. You know, my my son's business affairs. And I you know, now, I feel that he violated that trust. Right. I mean, that's that's his statement. And so. I mean strange is a little hard because to me strange Musial talking this rift. Yeah. But they have the hottest dad allowed this guy. Who's a felon to come in and run the company with them? What's interesting is I it'd be one thing if you had a criminal past but residing the company really well, right? If this had been a great success. People can have a second chance people. Can you know once you get mail fraud and money laundering that main? Sure, your tricky with your money your tricky with money, and that's what this guy was by the way, the hashtag that every Laker fans should look at and say, yes is hashtag my own man. That's a hashtag that Lonzo put out there in this may indicate that Lonzo is done being lavar, son. And he is Lonzo ball. Well, I'll be reporting on this for quite some time. I think and one of the things I think people I don't know if you missed it or just it was further down in the story. Obviously, the lower part, I scan every other word. The Lakers asked Lonzo about shoes keeps getting hurt. Well, yeah. And and by the way, it was pointed out did he this last ankle sprain? He was wearing big baller shoes. Right, right. He had three ankles sprains is year, he has had calf injuries, knee, injuries, etc. And but I don't know what's he wearing the big baller shoe each time. I think so. Wow. And the Lakers have asked him about that. How do you feel in those shoes? Are you comfortable in lonzo's on the record saying, you know, I'm comfortable if I wasn't comfortable, I wind wear them. But I'll I'll tell you this like you. He's already had one redesign of those shoes. And you remember after summer league when he played in his shoes and then stop wearing him. Yes. There was a redesign enough today. You imagine. If these injuries are related to the big baller brand shoes. What a tragic mistake that is. I mean, he's lost a year of his career now because of leg injuries ankle sprains. And in each case wearing big baller brand shoes. It's. He says in my story if I didn't wear these shoes I'd play in Kobe's, and I practice in the Bronx because they're heavier. We you know, he said he's open making modifications on his shoes. I mean, I personally think that is a reported just like literally off the top of the show. They've talked about folding the company they've talked about his managers on Instagram posting stories posting hashtag dump your merch that was an Instagram post yard more his tagline on the big ball on the bell in the family show has always been get your merch. Right. So. Yeah. Lonzo's post the other night lonzo's post was a picture of him with his number two in the rafters at Staples kind of like a spotlight on it in the picture says it's only crazy till you do it which happens to be the slogan or the last Serena Williams campaign for Nike, lonzo's Instagram and Twitter profile pictures were also changed to a childhood photo of himself wearing a Nike t shirt, Lonzo has deleted all social media posts involving big baller brand and his father. And his father. That sounds like. A rift at the very least and males intentional actions. Yeah. No, he's he's making in hashtag my own, man. You know this. I said this John always says don't hold the the you can't hold them responsible for the sins of the father. And I never did. But I also said, you know, at some point you're going to grow up, and you're going to be your oh, man, you're going to take control your own career dad's not going to run it. You're gonna run it. It's not an uncommon story. Kobe did that I you know, I brought up that parallel today. It's exactly what Kobe did do, you know the circumstances of that? Exactly. I know that he there was a separation between I know some of it. I'm gonna speak very generally. Because I I don't remember the very why don't you? Why don't you think it off? I'll read it. I wrote it years ago, but it was a few years ago. Mom had after fasttrack. Okay. We'll circle that. All right fasttrack is coming up next for your Momo last time. You were here.

We cant shake the Astros (Ep. 55)

"Same Avenue To Episode Fifty Five Section One. Thirty eight as always on your host Mark Volleyed and. I'm joined by Bryson today. How are you? I'm doing well? Fortunately we don't have taken with us. He had to cancel last minute But he did he planned on being here today at least drink cans but yeah but at least he was planning on being here. It's better than he was doing for six months or whatever it is. Hopefully he's back next week but we got lots of talk about today I mean just starting off just some stuff. That's on my mind baseballwise I've been starting at eating a highlight video for the start of the season. Because I feel like I only do one a season because it just takes too much time but I've been watching a lot of old videos of baseball and these are videos like I've never seen before the blue jays in like the eighties and stuff and it is like so corny like their videos of like Intros to baseball games and like the graphics and stuff. I don't know that's just what I've been thinking about really funny. You know what you should do. You should add. Some of those throwback intros because of the powder blue. They're doing this year. Bring it back. Had some little bit of a vintage mixed here. That's good idea. But I encourage anyone who has time to just go to you to search up like Blue Jays nineteen eighty-five bluejays nineteen eighty two or whatever and just watch the videos that show up because it is very entertaining to see the kind of stuff that day they had in this time. I don't know if you've like actually ever wash there. There's videos but it's crazy to see it like I never thought I'd be in such odd about all these videos. The I've taken some time to watch all of Some but not all of it Watching some of them to in their exhibition stadium it just. It's pretty cool just completely different arrogance. Time compared all the technology is now and how much more planning there is for these events One thing that was really funny There's a few videos of Blue Jays. Like pre one thousand nine hundred eighty two when there were horrible and it's just like CBC like recapping the Blue Jays. Whatever they'll be like they were terrible or like The Blue Jays had a terrible first season. I've only gotten worse since our inception like. It's some really funny stuff. Anyways you mentioned technology and speaking of Technology we're back for the third week talking about the Houston Astros because there's even more stuff that's come out of the Astros Since we last talked There was an article in. Oh I think it was the Wall Street Journal if I'm not mistaken and Street Journal and Basically just reporting more details about the astros scandal and basically the the whole thing started with a presentation from staffer And eventually they ended up using a program to decode signs through the game. Like you know figure out the patterns between signs and this would happen both on the road and at home which is different from what we knew before and there was lots and lots of communication about it including the the used code words. They called it dark magic which. I mean like. They couldn't think of any better name. I don't know it's just some more. I think these details are more funny than anything else honestly. It's a scary aim to give it to be honest with you. You think of when when you think about anything with dark dark magic you know you. Don't think about baseball or any type of sport. But you know it's pretty fascinating from this piece on the Wall Street Journal of how everything originated in. This has been going on since two thousand and sixteen which is even crazier as it was kind of starting to be implemented through the players in twenty seventeen so this was already going on behind the scenes a year earlier and again the idea was an algorithm that would decode opposing catcher signs. And from there it'd be employees watching are watching a film Game a replay room. And what they do is they would then pass the information onto the they would somehow pass it on to the players that can that can connect to the trash can bang in two thousand seventeen that we covered a few weeks. Or The you know Pretty much weekly since we started recording again. And you know there's just goes all over the place who was involved. You know who knew about it and former Astros manager. I don't know if you saw the interview. Aj hinch was. He was interviewed this week and There was pretty much reports and everything circulating. He confirmed from what they knew. A lot of. This originated from the front office. Where and the problem is that gets complicated with former GM luna pronounce his name. Yeah so he denied his involvement at first but now that everything's kind of circling back to him and other employees are even calling him out and saying that he was involved in this gets it even more like another takes it to another level and like you said they called it a dark arts. Stark magic cab decoding. You're holding causing other exactly so it's you know it's it's crazy how they managed to do this for three years before actually being caught. I mean You know Lou now or even a AJ. Hinch were mentioning that Commissioner Manfred kind of knew about these reports you know as the years went on and he was warned he continued to warn them. Worn them in the just pretty much. Didn't really acknowledge it. And he was finding ways to not even read the emails. Who's saying it was too long. Like he was just completely denying any idea about it but you know as former or even current employees are coming out saying that he was you know he was involved in this and he was one of the people that knew about this all the time. And you know this. This was an operation that was going on for over. What three years now and you know he was meeting with. He was seen talking employees in the video room while they were code breaking and everything. So this is another bizarre more as information. continuing to come out very bizarre. And you know you know the one thing that does is it kind of confirms now that the Front Office was indeed involved in. It appears that everything started from the front office. So I don't know if you take any further punishment or maybe I'm probably pretty much done everything they could at this point. But it's just crazy for us to finally see what was going on. You know I just you know. It's it's so weird that you can even think about this happening in baseball would even with the names and just bring it home to the Blue Jays. This article actually talks about the Blue Jays in kind of a funny way again I'll just read the paragraph where they talk about them It says on August twenty six twenty seventeen in another road notes kock-wesser who was the The intern who is now. I think senior something to do with baseball operations. He's now in a more in-depth role with the Astros Anyways he was one. I came up with this thing He said The system are dark arts signed. Stealing department has been less productive in the second half as the League has become aware of our reputation and now most clubs changed their signs a dozen times per game. He added that struggling teams like the Toronto Blue Jays and Oakland. Athletics seem not to care as much finding ways so I guess the Blue Jays just thought they were horrible that season which they were but any is really funny that the the Blue Jays just didn't care that their signs were being stolen because you know they were bad enough that season John. Gibbons is still too so you can kind of put the pieces together. How you would assume that he wouldn't really give much of an effort or care as much. But you're always finding ways for you know just to make the Jays look even worse in these articles but whatever Oh sorry Thom mcan. Wester is the The Astros Director of advance information. Not the not the intern who originally presented the Information. But anyways it still. It's just totally bizarre. And like we said we said last week more stuff is going to come out and we're going to talk about it like it's just never ending. How can get any worse for the Astros at this point? Yeah it's just who knows even more stuff's GonNa come on. You know. I think I think you know a lot of people are the more and more information comes out. The more people are just you know just at this point it just getting funny of holiday went how they did this It'll be interesting to see. When they conclude the red sox investigation to see how hopefully are how similar it was? Or maybe the Techniques user if it was on a less severity out by crazy how they're still even investigating another team who is being investigated for cheating totally wild. Okay perfect segue you brought up. The Red Sox This week the red SOx traded mookie Betts. He's finally out of the Al East now. The Blue Jays will not have to face him anymore thankfully But because of that we want to update our record predictions that we gave last week because Obviously without mookie betts in without the red sox being as good the bluejays are going to perform better because they have nineteen games against the red sox. And you know. Pass that they're gonNA they're gonNA do better if the red sox are worse so Now that we know what the Red Sox are going to look like largely in twenty twenty. What do you think the Blue Jays record is GonNa be what a way for the Blue Jays offseason and with this trade that supposed to be happening? It's kind of still on hold due to concerns of the players medicals at the red sox. Getting back anyways Let me just throw some stats a year for Jays. Fans who know who remember mookie Betts as an ultimate bluejays Keller so a nine fifty three opium ninety two games fifteen home runs. Fifty nine is twenty seven stolen bases so You know another way for the Jays offseason end successfully and was something that didn't even involve them Mookie BETTS is off the La David Price. And you know the the more you look at this red sox trade and you kind of look back to Jay's years ago in the J. started to decline specifically twenty seventeen. They're kind of innocence. Like it's an interesting spot. The rain because the Blue Jays also decided to earth assorted the Red Sox in this case. You know looking at the Jay's coming up the alias and the Yankees in raising a really good spot you know. The Red Sox decided to kind of take a step back. They're not as competitive. But I think there were still WANNA put a decent competitive team on the field and they'll have a decent team but with mookie Betts. Gone it just completely changes the projections and possibilities. How this can go for them and I guess if in this case he wanted to compare them to the Jays as mookie Betts on a contract year he could have really put them in a lot of a better spot. But either way mookie. Betts is going to have to perform in a contract year. No matter where he's playing and since he's out of Boston it's just a massive hole that they're leaving them and again it compares to kind of the Jazeera because the J.'s. Kind of you know in two thousand seventeen before they kind of blew everything up the following year it was the year they were supposed to be decent team. Nobody really saw this coming. At the rate it started for them. The Jason cited to stay competitive that year and you know of the fear of losing people in Free Agency. They then started a trade players away. And that's exactly why the. Red Sox traded movie bats here is. They couldn't reach a long term agreement. It's very odd to see a team like Boston. Able to sign somebody due to all of you know the market there in the one of the top one of the most you know one of the top payroll in baseball and the fact that they couldn't get Yuki Bet cider the fear of losing for nothing. It's just it's crazy. It's crazy even think of by a lot of people as well calling out the Red Sox I personally don't understand the trade or I do understand the trade but I don't understand how you know. They really can find the money to pay. Mookie Betts or who knows what he was asking for. The year before two dozen eighteen was obviously the best season of his career last year he was. Oh case he still had a really good year. Just numbers weren't as good but how this reflects the Blue Jays is now third in the. Aliases much better possibility for them. Rather than me locking in fourth place last week in which I said I guess we'll stay with our record. Why why not maybe improve yours by a few games mark? I don't know my projection. I think was a few games about five hundred and fourth in the alias. So I guess we can up that now or at least I will as third as a really legit possibility again asked to go well for the Jays and as projected for the Red Sox who knows how they're going to be they might just be a five hundred team as well. They might still be competitive. They could surprise. A lot of people by third place for the JAYS is a lot bigger possibility now especially with the mookie. Betts traitor. Yeah it's it's definitely a lot more realistic looking at now and I just want to pick up on one thing you. You mentioned that like looking at the landscape the alias. Like it'll be hard to win for any team. You Have Ultra Competitive Teams in the New York. Yankees and to a lesser extent the Tampa Bay rays and those teams you know are going to dominate the division. They're going to be very good teams. So if you're looking at this from the perspective of the Red Sox into a lesser extent the Blue Jays and the orioles like there's not really an incentive to try to win this year because it's going to be so so hard with all the competitive teams. You already have so. I like what you said like the Red Sox are taking a step back. They realize you know they've had good years recently and they'll take a step back. The you know. Try to redevelop in an regroup and come back when the least is weaker but it is interesting that they couldn't sign. Mookie Betts long-term because this is a player that you know this is the type of deal that the red sox do. They sign players long-term too too big expensive deals because they are. The Red Sox have a huge market. I used to live near Boston like everyone loves the Red Sox in New England except I mean I guess some people like the Yankees but most people you know Maine New Hampshire Vermont Massachusetts I Guess Connecticut to some extent all these people love the Red Sox. They have a huge market. They have huge capacity to spend. They have owners who are dedicated to winning and allow the team to have a huge payroll. It's really surprising that they weren't able to sign. Mookie Betts But because of the Blue Jays are going to be better So previously I said the bluejays would have a eighty eighty two I'm going to take that back. Obviously up I don't think it's going to make a huge difference. I'm kind of torn between saying that the BLUEJAYS ARE GONNA be eighty two and eighty and eighty three seventy nine. I know it's only one win difference but like I played safe and say that bluejays are now going to be an eighty two and eighteen. Because I still think the elise is a hard division to play in especially with the Tampa Bay rays in New York Yankees and. I don't think the Boston Red Sox are going to be a joke either. I think they're still going to be at least a five hundred team so yeah I'll put them at eighty to eighty and again just mentioning. You know how you mention you know the the market size for the Red Sox and so on and so on. It's just again. It's it's it's so odd to see them trail trade away like this. You know I guess us in Toronto. We've been used to that before. Just because the market is it's obviously a big market In the country of Canada. But you know there's the ownership hasn't really are. There hasn't really been a lot of money. Invested in the past few years and that has had an impact on the decisions. They've made and I guess we the Red Sox even warn this after Dombrowski fire last year. And you know the red SOx pretty much came out and said that they were gonNA start lowering their payroll and nobody at this point still. We don't really know how much of an extent they're gonNA do it. We don't know if they're gonNA completely blow their team up. I'm thinking the best way for them to not even a rebel. Maybe a retool like you said a redeveloped take-up take a step back against you're playing it safe and you don't WanNa pretty much harm future again. You're looking at two competitive teams. Who are the favorites in sorry favorites to win? The division specially Yankees weren't even favored When the world series this year ago to the world series in the raising raise always a competitive team likely in the wild card hunt. And then the James who are just progressing forward trending upward and I guess you can. You can see what the red sox are doing but again. It's just very odd. How they couldn't get a deal done with Mickey bad sue. I know players say this all the time even if they need it or not but he was somebody that can continually said that he wanted to be or remain Boston. Who knows if this trade will even go through? I'm sure it will be but there's there is delay in that is a little bizarre but again they're fearing of the medical who they're getting end because it is a three team deal. I think the twins are included and yes so as the trade finally processes in the next few days hopefully especially from Jays fans at a for us here. Good news all around again. I do agree with you. I don't think it's GonNa make much of a difference record wise but standings wiser could and you can understand your updated record projection I just want to go into those competitions a bit more. So yeah like you said it's supposed to be a three-way trade It's supposed to have the red sox trading mookie Betts and former Blue Jay David price to the dodgers than the dodgers sending Alex Vertigo and And the twins sending Bruce Star to the red sox in an dodgers sending Kenton my eighty two the twins. So it's a really complicated triangle that they got going here but the red sox are giving up. That's an price. The dodgers are giving up Kenta Maeda and Vertigo and the twins are giving up their prospect. Who's a twenty one year old Bruce Star gradual and he's the key part of this trade because they the deal was agreed upon last week against her. As you're listening probably last week Tuesday of this week and but after medical reviews The for gradual. Apparently there was something in his His medical review that freaked the red sox out so now that that's why the trade is on hold right now and and growl did undergo Tommy John Surgery and has previously mistime with a shoulder injury. So yeah who knows if this will happen. Hopefully it will but and to touch David prices. We've really spoken about him. That much about the straight. I guess it's another good one for the Red Sox who who got rid of half of their salary. The remaining salary for David price is the dodgers will be taken half of it and I guess it's good for David Price as a salary dump You know he gets spend three three more years of his career in Los Angeles so it. Should it be too bad for him going to a world series contender as well? I'm sure you can help them out. Some some spot on the rotation and you said he had some. There's kind of stuck in a triangle right now and you know you can even go beyond that as you know. The dodgers are supposed to be trading job Peterson to To the angels. Because they're getting mookie Betts and that trades also on hold because of the current status of the trade so a lot of stuff going on there but you know you can see why the red sox made the trade just because of their plan lower their payroll and take a step back and you can also see the dodgers point of view who who. Also we haven't really touched upon. There are team who's consistently you know. Just disappointed every year in the postseason. You even being defeated by a cheating team two years in a row. But we've spoken about that a lot but the dodgers again here going all in for a world series and as you kind of look at this. It's kind of has a quiet Leonard mentality or a feeling even though I see a different sport but a similar situation who somebody is coming here on a contractor and the team that's acquiring them has been disappointing in the playoffs and at this point regardless if they keep them or get rid of him obviously they want to hold on to sign a long term. I'm sure that's the plan as it was the raptors plan but the whole idea and the whole goal here is to win the world series in. The DODGERS ARE INVESTING FOR THEIR FANS. And they're showing their fans at their all in here. You know they have the roster to do it and again as per usual every single year their their world series favorite and favored even win the National League and go to the world series win the world series as well as they're projecting a Yankees dodgers world series. I think they did the same last year. You can see the comparison to how it related to the raptors with Leonard. How they're just going all in. And regardless if Mookie Betts leaves at the end of the year or not the glad you brought up the the Los Angeles angels part of this trade because not only is there the triangle of teams with the dodgers the red sox and the twins there is also the plan trade with the dodgers sending Jock Petersen Ross stripling and their prospect andy pages to the angels for Lewis Ren Ren Gif Oh and a prospect so you have four teams you have arguably two maybe three or four superstars depending on your count made David Price And millions upon millions of dollars involved here not only in the terms of the players contracts but also the salary luxury tax cap that these teams are trying to avoid and all this is coming down to one twenty one year Olds Medical Review. So very crazy deal happening right here. You know the angels want that trade go through as well as the Russell they got going into this year the the acquisition of Anthony Rundown and that's another competitive team to look out for this year in the Al West maybe a possible wildcard contenders for the angels. Who seem to always just be there but not go over that Hump. Maybe this year they can especially you know with the player you have in generational talent trope And not just MIC trope. Shohei Ohtani if he can stay healthy now maybe Jock Petersen as you mentioned the rundown so lots of players that could yield something but haven't in the past so we'll see what happens. anyways There's a handful of small things that happened this week. Jay signed Jake Patricia to a minor league deal they Announced that Kim previously scouting director. I want to say I'm not totally sure on that But he is joining the coaching staff at the major league level. Curtis granderson former blue. Jay announced his retirement Early this week and Kendrick Morales was just announced yesterday or today. announced his retirement so Lots of little things. I don't know if anything stands out to you from that but yeah nothing too much obviously want to get a quick shot into both Morales and granderson who obviously weren't with the Blue Jays during their Prime Morales is actually both were as bounced around a ton. The past couple of years. You Know Morales Journey. Three different teams are two different teams. Actually you could consider three because he was supposed to be on the Jays opening day roster and was traded just a day before opening day but anyways again especially Curtis granderson to a great guy. Great Guy for the community. Who's always you know? We know what he did in his brief time with Jason even the other teams so hats off to them and you know a happy retirement ahead for them and Yeah I guess. The signing of Jake Patricia Patricia. Sorry you know. He was a player that he was with Jay's a two years ago and he was always a player that you seem you thought the Jesus seemed to have liked and it's a good decent depth signing why not right with Spring training a few weeks away can stack up as many relievers as you want. But nothing much else to top up from their last discussion of today that we had planned Senator Around Neat Pearson and just the big question of whether he's going to make the majors this season because we've seen so much about him he was just named top ten prospects in all of baseball And it seems like he might be charting a similar course to Vladimir Guerrero junior or maybe even if you want to add him Boba Fett But will we see him in the majors? This season He is a twenty three year old. He throws what one hundred and three hundred and five miles an hour. He's obviously an incredible prospect for the Blue Jays. But he who knows if he's developed enough. Who knows if he has stuff if it's just all speed and and nothing else. Besides the fastball So what do you think? Do you think he's GonNa make the majors that season and if you do. When do you think he's going to be called I think it's no question. He makes the majors this year. Season barring any injuries that he suffered before then and if he does get if he does or sorry based on my prediction if he dies. I think he'll be called up closer to pretty much assume very similar situation and similar timing to win Vladmir grow. Junior was called up last year. It'll be closer to the end of the first month of the season. Maybe Midway I would say closer to May though rather than mid April to late April early. May would be probably run the latest. You'd see him and again you donate Pearson's top pitching prospect. Obviously for the Jays. And after you know. We've seen the debuts of Vladimir grow junior bogus cabin Bijou Pearson's the next man. Up on the list. For the past few years we've been hearing nothing but you know correct crazy things in amazing things about as potential in his tools and You know his velocity and he's he's another one who wants to be the hardest storing Blue Jay of all time. Which is I guess based off of his numbers that sort in the In the minors has just been developing. I guess it's something that you can't rule out and you know it's something that the Jays also would love to see and it's something. Maybe they would need as well I if he gets called. You know a month in month to month Senate again. May's my projection It's something you know. He would immediately impact starting rotation no matter when or how long it takes obviously and You know it's just I think it might be a similar situation to the service time issue from grow last year maybe that's what the holdup is. I can't confirm it but it's kind of you know seeing last year and seeing how the timing. The plan timing is for this year. It's very similar to grow. So maybe that's the reason why I don't know if you can confirm it or not the service time but I do think we will see him this season. I I think I agree with you. That will see him this season. Although I'm not totally sure. Because obviously like he made it to Tripoli last season he even if he only pitched a tiny bit there. But the thing I'm concerned about is yes. He does have mazing arm and obviously he can throw at an absurd speed that I'm concerned about his health related to that arm because You know anyone who throws that fast. Throws that much at a young age? Can Get pitching injuries. And I'm concerned that neigh Pearson might face at and He was if I remember correctly he was injured last season. But it wasn't a pitching injury. If I'm remembering correctly I might be wrong So I mean maybe he'll stay healthy But I don't know I I have a funny feeling about it and I'm not terribly confident that he will be able to stay healthy this season but if he does stay healthy. I think he could be a very good player and he wouldn't take too long to make it to the majors I'm thinking he'll chart a similar path as Ryan Baraki in being called up Was called up. I just looked it up on June twenty. Sixth of two thousand eighteen So I think the Blue Jays might hold off on calling Pearson up until later in the season like mid to late June Just because you know he's only had a few starts. If any really at AAA I think the Blue Jays WanNa give him that kind of extra experience In AAA only as eighteen innings there and even though he does have an ear array of your array of three in aaa like. It's still really not that much and I think the jump in painting from AAA to the majors in the quality of the hitters. That you're going to be facing as dramatic so Yeah I think the Blue Jays will want to hold off and maybe develop him a little bit more maybe get his strength up to avoid pitching injury That's just my opinion based on F. The injuries that you mentioned Even two years ago in two years ago he only actually pitched one start in. It was a two sorry. I was reading do a fractured right and he came back really late. Two years ago and then last year was last year. He Obviously a lot more than last year he he was injured. Like you mentioned and the injury was dead. He was placed on the injured list with an undisclosed ailments. So that was pretty kind of quiet diagnosis and not a lot was really released from the Blue Jays. Pr About that injury. But he did miss some time and I guess you can't agree with the concern of possible. Tommy John even other shoulder problems which he'd suffer. You know a few years ago when Aaron Sanchez you know had all of the potential and he was you know this was before his velocity kind of dipped he was throwing near a hundred every pech as he started coming out of the bullpen. Like really early. A lot of Jays fans kinda feared the possibility that he'd want anytime John but obviously other injuries halted items. Injuries did take you know potentially didn't harm to his career but it wasn't as we projected but based off the same kind of potential with the velocity and the power. You know the injury concern is there and it's something that you just. I guess you got to kind of maybe limited innings. I don't know what you WANNA do. Just because of the velocity you know all the analytics and such so. It'd be interesting even if the JAYS did. Call him up to see if there'd be any inning limits. I know. They did that to Sanchez. One of the years It kind of involved like a weird assignment to rookie ball. And then they call them up to from Single a but it is possible that they would do some sort of limitation. But again he's got to get to the majors. I says we both are projecting. He will just the timing again Both of us have different opinions. And it's just the timing's kind of an unknown factor of when it's going to happen and I guess the injuries are the health for the first month. Jays will monitor and I guess they'll make their the their decision as the first month or two months of the season. Go on the injury comparison in the work. Look comparison with Aaron. Sanchez is pretty good. Because obviously he was very fast during guy who we saw kind of fall apart. If that's an accurate description and you know a lot of his injuries was just related to the blister issue. Which was the whole thing by itself but Yeah I think you're correcting comparing those two because new pearson throws so fast and I mean I'm kind of focused on this because I just finished reading arm by Jeff Passan which is if if anyone hasn't read it I encourage you to read it. It's an incredible book but it talks about the rise in Tommy John. Surgery and why pitchers are becoming injured. So much more often and just looking at the Pearson. He seems to have all the traits of the pitchers in that book. That were injured. Which really concerns me and I just reading his bullpen page on baseball reference. It's just like baseball wikipedia basically It says In Spring Training of twenty nineteen the Jays were torn between the fact that his stuff was almost at major league level but that the team would need to be careful with him given his history of injuries and then later it also talks about The Blue Jays deliberately delayed his Major League debut in order to limit their work his workload but it was clear that unless health issues that would take place sooner rather than later during the twenty twenty season. So I mean that's what you were saying with a a quick debut probably in May but I. I'm not so confident. I think honestly if I had to make a definite prediction right now. I would say that he is going to get injured and not make his major league debut until August. All right well That pretty much wraps up. Our conversation for today Thank you to everyone who to did. Have listen to this As always if you're listening on I tunes please leave a rating and a reviewed It helps us. Get the word out about this. Podcast but Out counting down the days to the spring training just a little bit of time before pitchers and cadre for full catching.

Mason and Ireland (HR 2)

"I over the weekend back to back to back walk off wins for the dodgers. All on home runs by rookies. So when I'll pick. This one from to know covert do Google. Let's. Did it again? Yesterday was Will Smith. Pinch hitter. Had just been summoned from Oklahoma City and hit the walk off home run. Joining us right now is a guy who is there for all the excitement. Vo plunkett? What are you doing? Man. I'm on the Will Smith program today. I also had an early morning flight grabbed the nap. So now tonight I will hit a writer Whitehall walk-off story, whatever that would be walk-off story for the southern California news group, Bill. You, are you. We can always turn on you for that. You gotta be careful with language like that Bill when you're talking about newspapers, because we just think it's the end of print journalism. Yeah, I hope it's not a walk in story, as a matter of fact, and there goes Bill towards a forced retirement. So somebody else on the show, the next day, even act like you'd more in my, my departure, it is Bill, isn't it? Yeah. That's what I thought. I thought so so, so we'll get shaken instead, there's always a Bill few. Yeah, we can get a Bill so pretty monumental weekend. I mean, this is it's unprecedented that three rookies would hit walk off home runs on one weekend. Right. Yeah. It really. Never even happened back to back days and they did it three which the thing you got the what that reminds you, you of as a baseball fan is even after what's it been one hundred thirty years under thirty five years of, of professional baseball, things that have never happened before can still have. And that's just one of the things about baseball. So Billy, the dodgers have a seven billion game lead right now in the west how much do they need stuff like this? You know the hill the, the interest from the hill injury, whatever just to kind of keep things interesting between now in September. Yeah. I for for me. I yes. Yeah. For the fans. I'm sure you know, a lot of fans are going to kind of tune out for large sections of the, the season because of that, that they re in such command and, and cruising, it's, you know, I I've been saying this since spring training, this team is going to win ninety five clubs you might even go hundred. Plus, I think now you can go hundred plus yeah, yeah. And they're going to win the division by I think I said twelve games or more, it's already thirteen right? Is it thirteen today? So the only thing that matters Tober. So, you know all this stuff is, is just kind of fighting our time until October. So last time you were here. I made the statement and I will say it again, I think this is the best team that we've seen of those two World Series teams twenty seventeen and twenty eighteen you disputed that last time. To do. Are you starting to come around? Yeah. A little bit. I mean, they had a lot of the same things happen in twenty seventeen that we're seeing now you remember the, the summer of tile farmer. That's right. Yeah. It is. I, I think the first major league hit was a walk off double against the giants and his family was there. And it was crazy. They had a whole bunch of walk-off wins when they really got going during the during the summer. I will give this team credit for two things being better than seventeen and one is obviously the starting pitching. Yeah. They're just they're just rolling out one after another. And the other thing is the offense of approach. It's not home runs, or bus even though they're hitting plenty of home runs. It's I think I think we talked about this. It's that grind it out professional at bat after professional at bat approach offensively where there is no resting spot for, for the posing pitcher. Even if a guy, you know, is, is not going, well, say, Austin Barnes, he's still can can give you an bat where he you know, he works the count, and he forces you to throw more pitches than you want things like that. But guys like Muncie Turner. They really are difficult at bats regardless of the outcome. And, and that wears down the opposing starting pitcher that gets you into the soft underbelly of the relief staff. And you know it's, it's the kind of approach that wins in October. And I think they have more of that in the lineup now than they did in twenty seventeen. Speaking of soft, underbellies Bill, and not yours. Although though, the soft overbill. The dodgers the dodgers. Oh, I mean, they, they have a bad bullpen. I mean every team in the National League seems like I have one bit like the dodgers don't have an October built bullpen. They have a lot of time to fix it. How difficulty thinking it's going to be to get the you know the, the arms that are out there given that almost every team will be looking for bullpen help. When that time comes. Yeah. And that's that's kind of true every year. I mean it just seems like every year there's, there's some contender out there saying, we need one more hour purple. I think the dodgers are probably out there saying, we need to more arms. I, I will, I'll hedge it a little bit say some of the solution, I think is still in house, and I don't mean the guys are in the bullpen. I I mean Julio aureus thing I don't think he's going to be a starter in the postseason the way it looks now just because the rotation is so good and Kenta Maeda. And you know he he pitched pretty well yesterday. But the numbers with him are still very heavy splits. He's dominates right handed hitters and all the trouble. He seems to run into his gets lefties. So you know you put him in the bullpen in, in the postseason. And maybe you have one of your right handed answers on top of Joe Kelley baby getting himself. Straightened out Pedro by his Dylan Floro. And then whoever they may get before the trade deadline. And I do I do think they will get multiple relievers before the before the deadline. Do they also soon the Joe Kelly is going to morph back into like playoff Joe Kelley, like the guy that they attracted to sign in the first place? That's obviously the hope I mean, that's he's better the last couple, we haven't seen that guy yet, but he had a couple of, you know, really bad stretches for the Red Sox during the season last year as well. And then was fantastic and in October. And, you know, like we're saying they have the luxury of waiting and finding out over the next three months. He you know, he can find it or not. And then they can move forward from there, but they can they can certainly afford to let him figure it out or try to you're listening to Caspian Los Angeles Bill Plunkett, from the southern California news. Group is with us. Mason in Ireland. Brian Kaminsky is in for John today. So Will Smith at that pinch hit home run? He seems to be the best offense of option for the dodgers at catcher right now. Does does he get some run there? Or is he just going to be carried as a as a third catcher or wind up back at okay? See what do you think? I don't think they're ready to just run with him there. And, and I'll, I'll I'll pump your brakes a little bit on the offense. It's been seven games in the big leagues. And I think twenty two at bats or something like that. He's looked good. He's looked better than I had been told to expect all the scouting of him. And, and keep it release was Ruis had the much bigger offense of upside. Smith was the guy who was exceptional defensively. So, you know, maybe hesitate to anoint him yet. And I don't think they will. I think he'll, they'll just kind of be. Yeah. The extra wheel for now but. You know, they haven't got a whole lot out of Austin Barnes, Russell Martin. So if there's one spot that you feel you can upgrade, offensively, maybe that's it. I don't think they're real hard pressed to do that. Or motivated to do that, though. How much first base is John Peterson gonna play anything long-haul? This is an experiment that I do not understand, you know, we started seeing this like two years ago, and we just kind of chuckled at it was jock trying to keep himself occupied during BP. And now we're seeing it in games. And obviously, if he's gonna play there that is only going to be against right handed pitching. Right. So who are you freeing up a spot for in left field by doing it? And you know, it's not you're not playing Chris Taylor. Keith Hernandez out there against right hander. What about when Pollock comes back? Yeah. Then you're, then you're making room for Pollick. Another right handed? That doesn't make sense ended pitching. So then, you know, maybe it makes playing time for for do go. 'cause he you know, gets bounced by Pollock and moves to left field in those situations, if you're making playing time for Matt bady, well, then you would put bady at I played first base and Peterson left. They're more natural positions, jocks motivation. You know, more power to him for putting in the time. He is he's really putting in the time on this and in today's game making yourself more personal is a good thing. And this guy is, you know, at some point going to be a free agent. And maybe he thinks this is a selling point that will make him more valuable on the open market. Maybe the dodgers think that his get versatility would be a selling point as a trait piece. I, I don't think that's the case. I just don't think he can establish that fast amount. I don't think anybody out. There is gonna say, wow. He can play first base to. Let's. Take him. So I this is this has been a bit of a perplexing, little experiment. Isn't this isn't this part of keeping things interesting something to do, plus the dodgers, love position, -ality? Arman, didn't your forty two games up in the right. I mean they love position -ality. They loved the opportunity to be able to plug guys in different places in this, this just gives him. One more spot. Yeah. Play one more position. Like I Austin Barnes, I would imagine get some run at second base at some point, maybe to make room for Will Smith. I yeah, we ask Dave about that yesterday. He said, yeah, you might see that might even see Russell Martin at third base to give Justin Turner a break. That's you know, I hell names at this point are pulling people from the crowd today. They can't do anything. Wrong guys still work there through Owens and see still working there. The bullpen. Yeah. Yeah. How far away you mentioned how far away, are we from a returnable bird bones Pollock? Don't pick on AJ Powell break just after the all star break. Yes. Someplace sometime shortly after the all star break, he, he had Cory Seager both will probably start minor league rehab assignment during the break. When the when the minor league season kicks back in and what's the status of Rachel? You're not seeing him for a long time for a long time. The yeah this is a serious thing. I mean I know they've, they've done their best to downplay it. And, you know the everything was oh well, the UCLA is in great shape. It's not the damage. So the worst isn't, you know, it's not the worst case scenario. It's still not a very good scenario. He's picking up a baseball for another three to four weeks, you know, and then after that it's like spring training all over again. Add another three to four weeks to build his arm up, and that's a Suming that nothing flares up again that he goes out there in a minor league. You have throws a curve ball and, and everything you know explodes in his elbow. Is it this is a serious serious deal and you're not gonna see him before probably late August, if things go. Well, they really have downplayed this because it did not sound serious as you're making it out to be well, you should read. The stuff that the southern California newspaper group, have you been ahead on this story. Are you breaking this? No, I'm not break. But I have said that from the start that this is, you know, it may not be the worst case scenario, but it's not far from it. We don't like your type of yellow journalism alarm. All right, Bill, great stuff. Thank you very much for, for coming on a big weekend. And we'll talk to you soon. Okay. You got it. I'm just out here humping around humping around America. Exactly. Thanks bill. Do the context matters with an expression like that. Now, I really doesn't humping around. No, I think it matters. I think if you're like a baseball beat guy if you're a baseball beak I, basically, you hard around American means something, very different than I don't know. An adult film star. Sure it's a completely different context. You're right. Hey friday. You can join us for our second annual free agency party. You remember the free agency party last year. It was great. Oh, it was fantastic. I forget where we don't remember anything. I think I'd shots, I had shots many remember if you did. It was only because you were stealing from the morning show. They invented shots. Yeah. No. This is that you hear about that. What's that? It's clear men's galley clermont's Gallo last year. That was time so big boat. Chris Morales claims that they invented shots taking taking shots. No one had ever taken a shot before the noting the morning show invented the whole thing with the small little glass. Absolutely. And the liquor and the drinking at quickly, they invented that whole thing you know, they made every bit of their own. There was the first time that any of those bits, bits, bits, don't ever her all over the country. Exactly. Given the fact that his dad was in radio. For fifty years. Chris has been exposed to every bit in the world in every bit has been recycled. They're, they're like, sir make sure sexy. That's not me. There. Neither neither of those. Yeah, they're not sexy or unique. All right. They are our radio differed, but they're unique every picture that you see from the morning show. Raj has assured off, so. The whole touch take your shirt off was the only thing they own the rights to that's not inherently sexy. Confidence is sexy. Here's what I say. So after I did the shot on Thursday hens, is being confident where were we where we're ran Thursday. I totally forget, now you're really struggling, where were we on Thursday at the at the thing. We the rock. So I did the shot at rockers, and you claim that after that I was just not good. You just didn't make much. So here's the thing. I say do a shot at twelve thirty. And then you take the lead. And I'll just follow you. That's fine. Yeah. Since I'm clueless after a shot apparently switched chairs. I'm not making this up like you're, you're you are making offended by this your making, you know, it'd be Greg. You were there. You saw it. I mean he struggled a little bit for bit. Yeah, I don't think I don't think I struggled at all. I think it is why this is because you were drunk. This is a little made up. Yes, you had you had that drunkenness. They were all the makes you strong inside. It means like you were just you're confident more confident you guy never realizes he's doing drunk iced. Exactly drunk guy. I don't get drunk after a shot. One shot. Apparently a yeah. A little bit of something. We will test it officially on Friday. A little experience. Science. Ryan second annual free agency party at bar, Louie, and, and downy for this party will be broadcasting live all day long from six AM to seven PM bar, Louie eight sixty Apollo way in Downey off the one. Oh, five at Lakewood boulevard. Happy hour specials starting at six AM. I'm sure the morning show the inventor of shots, they'll be doing that. We'll do some then me. And Brian, I think you're in for Ryan. We'll be there. Yeah. And the Sodano show all live happy hour specials like four fifty beers. Five fifty glasses of wine. Six fifty martinis, half price elected apps and flat. Breads, that is bar. Louis in Downey for our second annual free agency party. This Friday, starting at six a m who us early that is early that is, but somebody will heal people will be drinking. It's not the early to go watch the radio show. Just saying that is an early start to happy hour. Is it is? I would I personally would call in and take the day as opposed to trying to sneak in a couple of going all day, but as opposed to trying to sneak in a couple of hours of happy hour, going to work, no just go straight chassis. Our just tape you're going to go at six in the morning. Take today, tell the boss run even happy, I'm, I'm going to happy hour, I will not be into this. All right. Coming up next for you. Dangelo Russell said something as a rookie. That is kind of could be prophetic. We got that coming up for you next Mason, and Ireland. Brian Chemnitz game for Johnny ESPN LA. I, we talked a little while ago to Bobby marks from ESPN, and he gave us a number a number that might work for the acquisition of restricted free agent. Diangelo Russel of the Brooklyn nets that number twenty three million dollars. He's eligible for twenty seven when he sees avenue someone will give it to him. I would think now Bobby didn't think so. I don't think so. There's less cap space out there than we think they're going to go crazy. Just it's a matter of, like, if you can't get the, the, the four Biggs, the five bigs, whoever might be like the elite elite guys. Where's your money going to go next? Is somebody gonna try to take, you know, a chance on? Russell who's only been in the league for four year, right? At a young player moving into his prime with the idea of he's on the way up and you're gonna pay for a, a good player who's getting better, rather than a thirty year old who's going to decline at the end of it. But in a world where he gets twenty two twenty three million. The Lakers currently have the cap space. We absolutely in the tricky thing is, and I'm not sure I fully understand it is because he's a restricted free agent. He can't actually signed an offer sheet until. July the sixth. Correct. And then the nets would have three days to match that, which means that if you are planning to give an offer sheet to de ngelo Russell. You probably have a really good idea that you're going to get him because otherwise you're tying up that twenty four million dollars. Right. And that's based on what Brooklyn's gonna do you write will basically, what that assumes as we're gonna know where katie's going Renault where kyri is going. We know are all those things. Yes. How that's all going to break down because Brooklyn's choice about whether or not to match is based, a lot on those other things based almost entirely on that. Yeah. The difference like the thing that's that, that you have to remember, I think about restrict free agents is the team that acquires the restrict fridge and always has to overpay a little bit. And Bobby mentioned this like those that you end up giving a little bit more Russell's a twenty million dollar player. You end up having to give him twenty three twenty four or you structure it in a certain way that makes it hard for Brooklyn, correct. You have to do something because it's some kind of poison pill if you sign show he said, we'll give you eighteen million. The Lakers want that hometown discount, or whatever might be, he's happy to come back not really hometown. But the team that you discount, and you give them eighteen and he says, sure, we'll Brooklyn's just gonna magic is you sign the as eighteen of really good. Good, good number for them. And even if they have to trade them, you can easily trade Russell at that number. Yeah. So the team that signs a restricted free agent. Almost always has to overpay a little bit. Right. But they're still that waiting period. Yes. And they're still the fact that, while if, if you have a an understanding with Russell that you're gonna make this offer, and that's legal, right. You're allowed to do that made just make him an offer. No Davin understanding that. Yeah. When we make you this offer you're gonna wind up taking it. Well the he'll sign it. He'll sign it. Yeah. Maybe doesn't sign it then you know, he doesn't wanna come. But, but again, it's not his choice at that point. It's Brooklyn's decision was as to whether or not to match the you don't got all indications are that if they do sign kyri that they're right because you don't rest those guys, although they could they have other guards. I've Spencer Dinwiddie. They've carsl bird on a wing. They've got got other guys that can plug in their they don't necessarily need Russell and kyri. So you'll know what's going on with. All of those dudes by then Brooklyn may renounce him on the six just to make room for all those guys. Yes. Exactly. Here's what ngelo Russell said. And he said this on sportscenter back in twenty fifteen when he was a rookie, but have four guys alongside you on the court. So you're starting five but you are in it. Save Bill Russell, Anthony Davis the buds as Michael Jordan in me. Good team. Yeah. Where was that from Greg Lakers nation house? Serena winters. Yeah. But where did it originate Lakers nation? It originally Lakers nation. Okay. So listen to it again four guys alongside you on the court, so you're starting five, but you are in it. I'd say Bill, Russell Anthony Davis. The buds aims, Michael Jordan, in me. Hey, you're almost home Dangelo. Two of the five not bad. I at this point legend status aside would not use my cap space on Bill. Russell. No, not at all out, especially you're gonna eat a lot of dead money at the end of that contract. He's just too old. Yes, you can't rely on an eighty five year old Bill. Russell give you quality mills. So, so the other thing that's going on today is that careful the other thing that's going on today is that there are billboards that have popped up for Leonard and the clippers snow. We don't know exactly who pay, anybody know billboards. It's undisclosed. We know it's not the clippers correct. That would be tampering. Yes. I mean, that would be like the most agreed GIS form of literally putting a billboard that would be it wasn't it wasn't tampering with the Lakers. Did it because he was that was their guy the state. Dwight that was that was their guy. Right. But in Cairo and last year. Guy last year. It was Jacob for Ronnie, who's not beholden to any rule. No, no. He's a Lakers fan. Right. He's not a member of the Lakers enough money to buy billboard. So he put up all the, you know, LA Bronco bores income. Exactly. So that was different this time. It's a an undisclosed group. But I wonder I wonder if it is, I want a freemason. Sure I- Stonecutters. I wonder who it is. And by the way, I God bless the clippers but I think he's staying in Toronto, a clipper Darrell clipper Errol. No clipper Darrell Hair would have appeared on the billboard. I don't think clipper Darrell has that kind of Jack. He's got a red suit with roadside car with the Red Sox and the same thing. Exact you gotta have a little bit of juice for that little a little. That's indicative of a man of independent wealth shirt is I think he's staying in Toronto. I think it would be foolish to leave Toronto. You've got a whole country. You literally are the king of the north, which by the way is one of the coolest moments from game of thrones. When John Owen John snow, everybody starts saying king. That's cool. It's a good. Tight is cool. It's a great title. And one of the billboards says king of the north and north is crossed out. And it says LA Greg, you think decidedly. Un- cool billboards. Yeah. I don't think they'll lay there really let airy very lame. There's there's nothing to him that like oh, that's creative. That's clever. None of it. You think lame brain? Yeah, they're really bad. That's by partially. I think why the clippers are disowning them because they're really lame. Why? The biggest reason is it's tampering. Now. It'd be the largest fine in history if they were really cool billboards they'd probably be gone. I'm we can't do that. But, you know little fist pump. Yes. Somebody's a serious clippers fan out there to take those billboards a, you know, if it's not clipper, Darrell, maybe it's Marcellus. Are FOX money. Exactly. It could be Marcellus. He's doing whatever he can he talked to Jeanie Buss about it. He talked, he's now putting up billboards. Let's just make this happen. Let's just say it's Marcellus from now on Marcellus did it from now on Marcello stood sell us put up billboard. It'd be talking about show. He's got enough money in his pocket to put those billboards up Marcellus with that FOX money. Milia coming up next something, Danny green said that seems to take both him and Kawhi off the board. That's coming up next ideas panel, Mason Ireland show tonight, by the way, the NBA award show. It's I mean anybody paying attention to that. I am I am lucky. Locked in for the NBA awards. All so moved on. It's happening right over here at Barker hangar in certain Monica, which is a really cool venue. It is a cool. It's really cool. But I think the promise to which time has passed that we already kind of know who's gonna win everything. It's not a very controversial year. I mean Jaanus is gonna win. Yeah. Jaanus is gonna win. You know, Siaka GMs going to win most improved and is there a year Donncha chip's gonna here? Here is Lou Williams going to win six man of the year, probably. But it's like beginning like Lou Williams. Stop playing head coach pudding Holzer could be. See, so there's some unexpected, but nobody is giving nobody's invested in who's gonna win coach of the year after all these guys have been off the court office sidelines off of everything. Most of them for like two and a half. This is the NBA's effort to turn it into a hundred and sixty five day a year thing, but we already have free agency to do. Right. And we have the Lakers who can just do that themselves, and we have the draft and we have one this is not what they need at this point wouldn't shock me if they moved it doesn't hurt doesn't hurt. It doesn't hurt. I mean, even if nobody watches it doesn't hurt I'm sure they get some revenue out of gets programming and summertime and too much time, though. Those passed between like the regular season when all of this stuff is based on it, never would that guy sucked in the playoffs, but the matter. So I just I'm not a fan. Yeah. We all agree on. Do we agree on everybody? Jaanus is gonna win honest and should dot should. Moscow Ceac most improved much. I say Putin Holzer okay over dock. They went not. And one of those guys, it's fine six-man Lou Lou. You know player you could pick Embiid. You could pick right? You go bear you could probably go or Jaanus. Yeah. Janas the fact that Janas could win both of those things, I think is crazy. He's insane and BRUCE'S MVP candidacy. So no need to watch people. We just told you who's going to win. I don't even think they've got a host, sorry TNT like the Espy's this year. I'm excited about because you see who's hosting no, Tracy Morgan yet out, Tracy Morgan. That's a little evening. It's a little risque for the company backed by. Absolutely. Anything can potentially happen, Tracy. That's long little edgy for us. You can I'm excited. What what's that Greg? I'll just saying we have Megan repeat. Oh oh, we have Megan repeat. No, the US women's soccer team won. Jay hit it here is the penalty kick that gave us the old ultimate winning goal. There. It is making repeat oh actually scored on penalty kicks twice in the game. They beat Spain two to one. That's the first goal that the US women's team has allowed in the congress. Up the they, they screwed up. And the this Spain scored like nine minutes into the game. Yeah. Was it? Yeah. So and Sweden is up. That was my mythical money bet Sweden at fifteen to one, and they're winning right now, when you bet against America. No. We all mythical team other than America. Yeah. Who was your team other than America Greg? I took growled Africa two thousand to one thousand one I don't think they made it into, and Greg would knock against American anyway. John, take John took let's see Brazil, and Japan took Brazil, and Japan Brazil's out Japan Brazil, now make it the Brazil they lost yesterday. I think it was on the round of sixteen. They lost their under sixteen so Jonah's done and the US now plays France. And many people think that France, the winner of that game will win the whole who plays for US. We play we play France, France was a co. Oh favorite to win the whole thing. That's what I meant. When I said, a lot of people think that whoever wins that game will win then France has home country advantage. It's a big game. That's a gigantic game. Are we on the air when that goes on, on Friday, we'll be at we on remote last? Because when we were there on Thursday, the US women's team was playing correct at rocket Bruce, and they want, and they did win. Yeah. We'll be a bar Louie when it's all happened will be at bar. Louie anyone either be out in the eight or people think the win like there's nothing in between. Wow. So that's a huge game. Oh, yeah. All right. Coming up. Next Bobby Marx said a bunch of interesting stuff, a little bit earlier on the show. We'll circle about circle back around to it. How much is de ngelo Russell potentially worth on the open market, along with how restricted free agency works that's coming up next for you, then fast-track Mason, Ireland, Brian Chemnitz in for Johnny SPN LA. Yeah. You know, I love going to the movies. I just have not had a reason to go to the movies very much. We're going to the Spiderman Spiderman July the sixth. I'm in for that. Is that a Jewish Spiderman Spiderman vitamin vitamin comes with long? Spiderman, I'm in for lions Lion King lanky looks amazing. Spider-man's six. I'll be busy with free agency. Oh, won't be able to go because a free agency but I mean everything just feels done, lack, don't get to deepen faster quest. Okay. I won't get into it. I won't get into all right. Bobby marks joins us a little bit earlier today. Dangelo russell. We talked to him about and how much de ngelo is available, how much is available to them. And how much might take to sign. He's not. But the question let me just reset is he a max player? He's not. But, but I you know, it's but who is right. I mean, like like the MAC. It's like I know at everyone's overpaid, getting the max but the marketing tapes, the MAC sure that's, that's the reality of. And you know, it's like, you know, I, I wrote about the Nazis like the analytics, hate the angel- Russell, right? Like if you base it on the analytics, you're not big on them, but I said the analytics earthy I cash, you gotta watch the cat play the sherve. I mean. He he put that team when then what he was out on his shoulders good chunk at a season. And I think a lot different than what you guys saw handles the first couple of years here. So I don't think he is. But you know I thought his range was probably in that twenty two twenty three million dollars. So, so, yeah, I mean, if you have to pay an extra four then then, you know, then so be it. So he does from that think he gets to twenty-seven pay an extra three four again this, this comes from who's giving the money if it's a much different deal. If Brooklyn ends up holding onto benefit team like the Lakers or other teams that are rumored to be interested in Russell go after him. Because the team that signs a restricted free agent always has the gim that offer sheet the always have to do a little bit of something to make it. So the other team doesn't wanna keep them. You know, the I was I'm a huge fan of analytics, but I do believe in the eye test to. And I watched Angelo wrestle play. Fair amount this year, 'cause both Spencer, Dinwiddie and charissa Vert where my fantasy team so I watched more Brooklyn nets basketball than you would think and Deandra LaRussa was spectacular, and there are stretches of the season, where really carry that team in ways that he hadn't been expected to carry a team before and a team that was trying to actually go to the playoffs. So the games mattered in ways. They didn't matter in L A, and he played really well, and, you know, in terms of what the Lakers need, you need a guy who can create a shot, which he can do you need a guy who can spot up and hit a three pointer, which you can do you know? They can handle the ball thirty seven thirty eight percent last year. We got credible enough, and he's young when you can grow into it with Anthony Davis and all that kind of stuff, decent pick and roll partner can get into the paint and finish it. It makes a lot of sense. It's just a matter of if you sign him that's chunk that you have. Right. And that's the that's the question is, and this is this is what rob Pelinka is going to have to figure out and we'll start finding out on Sunday during Domingo got at three o'clock. Dhia slice and dice that money to be able to get multiple. Players at lower numbers or do you sit and you wait for a guy that's going to basically be your entire cap, right? And I think some of it comes down to skill set, because if you can get one guy who can do two things of that might be might be better than having to divide it up into two or three guys who can kind of each one of those things you need Russell can create a shot and handle the ball and spot up shoot JJ Radic can do one of those things will cost you less right now, you still need to go. Find somebody in your back court who can create his own shot in the near the end of shot clock. So if you can find one guy can do both those things you might be better off, this is this, surprise me. So we've talked a lot about guys that would make sense. We've talked about guys like Marcus Morris and Danny green and Nikola merited and Patrick Beverley surprise me because I, I love this guy. I would love to see him on this roster. Wow. This is Kirk five million dollar guy. Wow. That's a lot less than other run. That might fit in. Better off to five, you know, so it's, you know, tonight's little bump there. I don't I mean, I would be surprised if the team signed them for like three years twenty four, but I think he's I think he's a five million dollar guy. Big difference between three and you know, eighty year and I would have guessed eight yeah, I would too. But that is I said, at their that is enough to fit into potentially the room exception, which is four point seven billion. The Lakers have that regardless of how they slice up that extra bit of cap, the cap space they have now they have that other exception that they can use regardless one player with the one thing you still have the room exception. The part that could really work for them is the lessons that all the teams learned a few years ago, the summer, the Lakers signed dang and MAs gov and money was just, you know, Alan crab got that huge. Yeah. Everybody is just the money. This is the result of them not doing. These moving right instead, just all the sudden everybody had a bunch of people just freaked out and threw money at everyone and decided that was probably a bad thing to do. And so at Bobby Mark said was that this year teams that don't get who they want, like the, the top guys on their list instead of paying an extra three or four million dollars just because they have the money they'll just wait or they won't do anything they'll, they'll engineer trade and use cap space that way instead of going out and signing Timofey MAs gov to gigantic contract, because that's the cap space fair amount of this. I kinda cobbled together, both Bobby Marx this time, we Ataman and Bobby marks the last time we had him on. And I took notes because I do. In obsessive. So I if created an exile, spreadsheet with, and I, I'm not kidding. No, I believe in exile spreadsheet with every potential free agent and what Bobby Mark said they might get on the open market. And the thing I like the guys that are anticipated to get not the not the sixteen to eighteen million dollar guys. But the five to eight million dollar guys brook Lopez. Last time he was here, said five million Trevor Reza five million. Well, people other people are talking for brook, Lopez in that ten million dollars. Are they really ten to twelve? Yeah. Last time he is here. He said five Seth curry five million. Darren collison, eight million Patrick Beverley, ten million Nico Ameritech ten million and ranging up to Danny green at twelve million. Although here's what Danny green said, on sports Canada channel Saudis, official name of ES. ES channel candidate channel. Here's really sad about about coli. And also he kind of tipped his own hand. He said he's done his job. He loves winning. I think that's a main priority for him. So I think the city, the fans have done their job organizations done their job is going to be hard place to turn down. It'll be hard, a purse to leave knowing that you can win run back have a great team. And have a city of people fans that love you another willing to give you damn near everything and a condo and some food. And a plane. And dessert after that, but give you everything the world and then some. How much can you give the guy he but it's gonna be hard to turn down and said it's, it's rare to see him do what he's doing. And I think it's a positive thing and it's. A good percentage for you. I don't know what the percentage is. I think it's a higher percentage for for him to be here then to leave, I would say. So there you have it going to be hard to leave. I think it's I don't think he's leaving. I know we the somebody popped up billboards for the clippers here today or over the weekend. I, I don't think he's leaving Toronto. If you're going to do one of those two year, two in one kind of things, anyway, just to get yourself back on the market as a tenure guy. It kind of makes sense. The stain defend your title to stay in the east Boston's kind of on the way down he's sort of a low key guide. Toronto's pretty much a low key city in the NBA had to leave him alone. But I mean he owns that country. A lot of this. They managed his minutes, perfectly loves Alex McKechnie up there. They've done it perfectly. They can still improve its management is fantastic, their messiah, Jerry. It's one of those deals where the only thing and Ramona talked about this last week. It's just you want to be closer to home. It is about as far away from his family as you can possibly get San Antonio isn't Los Angeles. Right. A lot easier to get fifteen relatives to San Antonio than it is to Canada. That's true. I mean, that's it. She's like it's not even the weather. It's not that it's really cold. It's just it's far from home far from his family. All right. Coming up next for you is fast track. A whole bunch of other stuff coming up for you during fasttrack macer in Ireland. ESPN LA.

GSMC Baseball Podcast Episode 303: San Diego Finally Did It

"The. Golden State concepts baseball PODCASTS. Cover everything majorly from sprint. Treat the world seaweed. Got Your Favorite Club cover from New York to Boston to La this is the golden state media concepts baseball podcast. said. Thank you for tuning in to the MC baseball podcast brought to you by the GMC podcast network. I'm your host, Evan Wurley, and we are back with another episode. Happy last week of the season for everybody out there. This is the moment. It seems like we've all been waiting for. You know we have. Seven of the sixteen teams or locked into the postseason five in the AL we ought to solidified in the national. League. Just the. Dodgers in the padres. Really. Short. Season I mean, obviously that's you know. That's like an obvious statement. It's been a short season because there's only sixty games in the year but. It flew by to the point where you know it was like this was such a long year, but it seemed like you know from. When this whole like shutdown happen all the way toll when baseball actually started seemed like it was so so so long like. Just an incredibly long time where we didn't know you know obviously, there was the what's going to happen like what's going to do this? What's what's what's with that You know and then. Baseball. Finally started and then it was just like everything's been in overdrive like it just seems like the end of the year is just like zoomed past us and you know this year was. This year in baseball has been. You know. Pretty like pretty nuts just for playing just playing wise. You know what I'm like just by you know what teams have been good. What teams have been bad like a lot of teams that we expected to be really good were not, and then a lot of teams that we thought were going to be really bad also weren't like if you were telling me that this is the last week of the season and the Seattle Mariners versus the Houston Astros was going to be like a huge series to determine you know if. Houston's GonNa miss the playoffs. Like our said that you were absolutely nuts you know. But here we are you know the Seattle Mariners. Are Four Games back. Of. The Houston Astros and tonight they are starting a series. Wait today the twenty. Yeah Twenty Four. So ten night. They're starting off a series of three games set at home versus the Houston Astros Y'all Lance mccullers Universe Marco Gonzales. Freyberg. Valez versus eljay newsom and Zach grinky versus Nick Mar merger. Vicious Margarine vicious. Julius. Wow. That's a very confusing name to say but. This three game series if Seattle Seattle can come back and sweep somehow sweep the Houston Astros. They have two games in the season left against the Oakland athletics who have already clinched. They've already you know. Locked. Up Their playoff spot they're already the number one team in the American American League West So. That being said, they're gonNA. They already have their home field advantage locked up in the first round before they're going to the bubble. So. What is really there? What's really their draw of going in? Like to play the Houston Astros now. Contrary to that you know you have justin verlander who made noise this weekend by going on his instagram and saying that you know he's done. For for Tommy John Surgery. So he's done for the rest of this year. and. Probably done. For the majority of next season if not all of next season so. You know it's like you might. The Houston Astros are. There they're not an easier target in the postseason because they still have that massive lineup, but they're pitching is going to be a little in a little easier Let's go check out there ending the season inch. So they got the and they the Texas Rangers. So the Texas Rangers. You Know Texas. Rangers could play spoilers against the Houston Astros this year. Let's see what they're. Let me do a little. Little more of a dive and see how they fared against the Texas Rangers this year. So have even lost a single game is pretty much what I'm going to look for. Yeah. They have their first game against Texas this whole year they lost. So. It's not that they've lost actually many games against texts wall not many they've lost too. So I. got kind of trouble but. They've lost two of their six games against the Texas Rangers, and you know if they've if the Texas Rangers go in. And they beat the Houston Astros especially you know. With their pitching staff like as thin as as it is right now. And, they pull off like the massive upset in somehow the Seattle Mariners are getting into the postseason. That not be the most insane twenty twenty baseball thing ever I mean we just saw the San Diego padres clinched for the first time since two, thousand and six, which I will get to that in the next segment. The next segment I'm GonNa, talk about you know how what was going on in the world the last time the San Diego padres May to. Play playoffs not just the world series but the playoffs like they're legitimate world series contenders last time they made it to the playoffs. They were not world series contenders but Yeah. I'm definitely going to be going over that because there was a lot of things I was looking at it like Oh my God I honestly couldn't believe just how far the world has changed in the past. You know. Fourteen years I mean, that's pretty much a given but my God, there was a Lotta throwbacks Going back to this Seattle Mariners thing it's like the playoff odds for the Seattle Mariners at one point five percent to make the postseason one point five percent and think like, yeah one point five percent they're definitely not making it but I mean not to go back to the NBA because I bring the NBA of lot in this Sorry for the people but you know. Oklahoma City thunder point two percent chance like legit point, two percent and You know they were going to. You know when they and not only did they make the playoffs? They. Were very, very very like competitive in the postseason almost won the first series against the Astros or not the astros, the rockets but. So it's not like it's it's not far fetched to think that the Seattle Mariners can make the postseason this year I mean, you look over at the what is it? Then you look over at the the National League you got. Sixteen Games one, two, three, four, five. Let's say six, all bring six in here. So you have the phillies. Yeah. The phillies, reds, brewers. Giants mets and Rockies all fighting for four playoff spots. So far the playoffs right now you got the three division winners. You got the San Diego Padres, who are in it then you got Miami? St. Louis? PHILADELPHIA. Cincinnati. And then Milwaukee Cincinnati Milwaukee and San. Francisco were all tied for eighth seed. You have three teams tied for the Eighth Spot Cincinnati incredible pitching. And you know a lot of teams. Like a lot of people thought they were going to be the favorites to take the central this year like the up and coming just absolute star team was gonNA kill everyone. Then you're the Milwaukee brewers who were like, you know they're one question mark. This year was going to be pitch while I was I wanted one question mark. There was definitely. A couple one being you know the pitching staff and how they were gonNA fair and the number two was how Christian Yelich was gonna do because everything like the warm up scrimmages was Christian Yelich struggling pretty bad and then nobody expected the San Francisco giants to do absolutely anything in turns out like Mike you strengths he is a borderline MVP candidate so You know there's a lot. There's a lot of stuff that needs to be decided this week and it's like absolutely crazy. The fact that you know we have all this stuff going on, we have one. Small Little Week left in. You know left in baseball or the regular season I should say because actually what is it eight days from now I think September twenty-ninth is the first game I'm according to this on Monday the twenty first so yeah, we got eight days. Eight. Days until the playoff starts you know we got nine spots and he's the be field like this. Absolutely. Absolutely. Insane but. You know before I go dive more into that Let's go talk about the wild like. Crazy stuff that you know what's happening this weekend there was a few. Major new stories that you know. Kinda. Hit the seen this year or this weekend and one of them. I'm trying to pull up the Trying to pull up the video here what is it a church? So the city field? Had A fire going on with the braves games and nothing really happened like no one stopped playing. No one really did anything was like you know Fire outside the city field in New York that was a tweet by Jacob Wycoff. you know nothing. Nothing stopping the mets and the braves You know they I heard that it was in the street behind. City field. So at the street behind city field caught on fire but it just it just looked like you know the behind the Jumbotron, there's a massive fire Doesn't seem like anything was really okay. or anything wasn't over the top bad and everybody was okay it was on the first time. Apparently, there was a fire at city field because a in May two, thousand, eighteen, a fire broke out in a display case and the Jackie Robinson Rotunda you know is much more serious fires. It was indoors thankfully minimal damage was done according to fan cited. So that's Wild. someone had a funny tweet saying that you know city field is on fire and they quote tweeted ain't go no need to be alarmed just the braves offense because it was because we absolutely destroyed these guys You know another. Another weird thing that happened this weekend was a fan pike scaled the side of the big of the green monster to jump onto the overhang at. Read that the red SOx Yankees game throwing stuff on the field you know. The most incenting ever you know. Not The most actually not the most insane thing I think the most insane thing was that the Yankees at the time were down ten to one. Against Boston at that time, like that was hands down the craziest thing I did not think that. Boston would even edge out a single win this season They did avoid the sweep which was nice They even diced them up so bad at backup Catcher Erik Kratz came into pitch in you know had knuckleball come in as low as fifty five miles per hour. Nice. Anybody who comes whenever catcher comes in, and it's just like you know I'm just GonNa lob this up there and see what you can do with it. I'm all for that majority of the time they get more than give runs. Anyways I've never seen a giant inning happens against the against outfielder or Catcher, or whoever comes into pitch win you know the pitchers are having a rough day on the mound. Am I like? Am I in the minority on this does this happen all the time? I don't think it happens frequently like I. think that that's a pretty decent strategy I would like to see you know in the age of openers just be like, okay we're throwing Kevin Pillar. And just see what happens. Like if they came in which us and outfielder who is just lobbing lollipops all day. I wonder how many he could go. With like you know quality start underneath his belt. Could he get. Four innings. Because they say it takes one whole trip around the line of to adjust. So, I was like that was the whole metric thing about the about the opener was they wanted to You know. Just have a new pitcher, go all right, three outs, three outs, three hours, and then the second time you know the lineup comes back around Bomo throw in another guy. Granted that doesn't work as often because you know a lot of relievers cango three innings such as you know, Sergio Romo being an opener for the Tampa Bay rays when that first started. Let's get weird. This is the year to get weird like we were saying this before the season started just get weird and. I JUST WANNA. See like a good I, think a good team that would like be a pretty decent candidate I, just throwing an opener. The Pittsburgh Pirates. Are Pretty good one Texas Rangers you know the bad teams. Let's see the angels do it. I would love to see what would happen if you tried and Mike Trout out to the mound just for you know like hey. Like why don't you try your hand a pitching to see how far you can go? I mean, obviously that's the big. You Know Oh like ease. The Best Player baseball you just think he can do everything. I want to see what would happen. And like the angels are making the playoffs. The angels haven't been good since two thousand sixteen and even then they got waxed in the first round of the playoffs. Why not? was what happens throw have a whole game where every position player throws. I think that would be so sick. Like if you had. Like you know first inning trout second any random. Third inning Justin Upton like just go down the batting order and just throw position players and just see what happens. I think that would be hilarious and I think every I think most fans would tune in just for the unintentional well, prob- definitely intentional comedy that would happen. Just to see. Like Max Stasi. Up they're trying to throw slider. If even any of you know who max dash is. Bring Johnny Vitelle at a retirement that guys like five foot two with cavs, the size of my head. have him out there having to home plate like screw it like the angels you guys. You guys need as much like. As Much Notoriety as you can get. Like get people to watch your games. Because the play on the field is not putting you know butts in the seats or in today's age butts in front of the television or computer. Games on my computer but. You know that's Why not do that? anyways back to the. Back to the RED SOX game. So apparently, he scaled the back end of the green monster hopped over. Started yelling about some stuff. We through apparently through hat on the field almost started doing some push-ups. P threatened to jump on the batteries I which I thought was kind of funny I don't know why I wanted to watch a red sox game. This bad I. Guess it was the one game at they were winning and like probably in the third inning he was like you know what I'm doing this and then just went in there and started yelling. All I have to say about this is you know like we have like our whole like issues, people whatever have their issues with social whatever going on I just want to show to the cops because they actually didn't arrest them. They just took him to A. Mental facility to have him get checked to make sure he was good. Good. Solid move by you. Boston Police Department. Solid move by you like there's a lot of police departments that are screwing up and there's some that are doing a great job and that's a good job. I think we need more of that. We do need more of that like do I don't think they do need to be arrested. He just needs to be like, dude, like, are you? Okay. And then took him and made sure that he was all right I. Don't know what happened after that. I didn't read up on it. I hope you know the hope everything went. Okay but You know I just wanted to give a little shout out to them. Good. Job I you. Already. Everybody I'm going to be taking a quick break and we'll be right back to just break down how long it really has been. Since we saw the San Diego Padres, make it to the postseason. This is your ultimate staffer everything sports the Golden State media concepts, sports podcast. Should I say more from the NFL MLB the NBA suit MMA? It's all in here. The golden state media concepts, sports podcast listen. This. As All right everybody and we are back so. I did a little bit of a deep dive. Deep Deep, into. The past of the. San Diego. PADRES. One thing that I thought was hilarious on baseball reference, DOT COM and went back through the years they've actually went through two. To complete logo changes. So if you guys remember or old enough to remember when the San Diego padres were their logo was the home plate with the wave on it. That was their logo the last time that they made it to the post. So I am on their baseball reference page. For Two thousand six for their stats, they finished eighty eight and seventy four finished first in the West. Which is the sad thing is you know they lost three two one in the postseason in the divisional series. To to the St Louis Cardinals. So their last playoff run was rather short lived their manager actually was Bruce Bocce of all people so right before he went to the. The San Francisco giants in one three World Series Championships He was actually in a coaching, the San Diego padres. So there are some throwback names of throwback names to be said on this two, thousand and sixteen for the San Diego padres. So I'm just GONNA. Go through some of the names I'm going to go through their starters, and then you know if there's Anyone that I see that really sparks some like some some nostalgia. All say. So they're starting lineup was the catcher eighth thirty, seven year old Mike Piazza. was their starting Catcher for one hundred, twenty, eight, one, hundred, twenty, six games Adrian Gonzalez was their first basement a gone out him one, hundred, twenty, six, hundred, fifty, six games nobody on this team actually cracked one hundred RBI is which is insane kind of wild thing about only one person which was gone who batted above three hundred Josh Barfield that Second Khalil. Greene. shortstop major throwback, their vinnie Casteel. was their starting third baseman for? A little bit. He only played seventy, two games that year. So I think they had jeff blom. Or Mark Bell Horn starting at third base that year I'm just going based off games played. It was probably Mark Bell Horn. So you have him yet thirty eight year old Louise Kissed. So Dave Roberts was in left field and yes it was that exact Dave Roberts the coach of the Los Angeles dodgers was starting in left field the last time the San Diego padres made the postseason and then round out the field you had A. And Mike Cameron and a thirty, five year old Brian Giles. I forgot Brian Giles even existed to be completely honest other notable names on this team Ryan Klesko you had Russell Branyan. Like. This is absolutely say the fact they have not made a posted this Mark Bell Horn. Eric Young Junior anybody really I don't recognize any of these Turmel sledge. I remember Terrell Sledge he had some hype on them for about like six weeks. Go to their pitching staff number one as. Jake peavy? You're Jake peavy who absolutely was the ace of aces in San Diego for a long long time I remember every time I was getting a video game whenever I played you know Jake peavy whether whether it was you know MVP baseball or you know we'll be the show It was a rap like I just could not do a thing against Jake peavy and you know he was a pretty you know us he was up there. You know he want a couple of CY youngs was a very important piece of the. You know the San Francisco giants World Series runs. So I mean shadow to Jake peavy on a great career who was twenty five years old at the time they had woody Williams who's thirty nine years old Chris Young. Ten pitcher who was pretty much just famous for being. So he had a pretty good run with the Texas Rangers I. Think it was Clay Hensley, Chan Ho Park, David Wells man Alan emery was on this team. Man. This is some throwbacks trevor. Hoffman was thirty eight years old probe that I would say the second best closer of all time I mean it's Kinda hard you know. It's Kinda hard. Knowing that this guy was the you know the second best closer of all time Mariano Rivera had one pitch in completely dominated everybody so I mean. Shadow two Trevor Hoffman on his good career. But They had all of that going on. Let's see. Can I see the entire playoffs? That year? Can I see that postseason? SH TWO DIVISIONAL SERIES Go. postseason history tenant tended to to to to. Case of two, thousand, six, hundred, sixty cardinals. They won the world series that year forgot about that. So the Patriots lost to the eventual world series champions. So the playoffs looked like this, we had the padres versus the cardinals and you had the new, York mets face the dodgers and. Let's see so. Dodger was cardinals versus met. Cardinals ended up beating the mets going to the world series you the Oakland A.'s and the Minnesota twins Detroit Tigers. New. York. Yankees looks like the athletics took care of the twins in the first round. So in the AL, was the Detroit Tigers and the Oakland A.'s the as gob balanced. Maglione were Donas home run I remember that one that was insane and then you had the Cardinals Tigers World series where the. World series MVP. The one, the only David EXE Stein. You know he was he took over that series I guess. I. Guess if you want to use the words took over but the I remember that that was a really fun team to watch that. So Taguchi Jim Edmonds Juan, Encarnacion Scott Rolen Eckstein Pu Holes Yada Molina was only twenty three at the time insane but One thing I want to talk about with all you guys I went back and I looked at some of the crazy headlines that were happening during two thousand six. So in two thousand, six for everybody WHO's around my age Hannah Montana debuted on the Disney channel. That is right. Hannah Montana's first episode came out in two thousand six along with thirty rock dexter and ugly Betty the number one one of the songs that topped the billboard charts was Mariah Carey's don't forget about us. That song. They. Huge. Banger I'm a big I'm a big Mariah Carey Guy. I listen to Mariah Carey like more than I probably should. But I don't care no shame in my game. Justin Timberlake's future sex love sounds and beyond be. Were two of the best selling albums of the year Mark Zuckerberg. Was In college. And had just You know made facebook expand to US like universities then moved to international student networks You know he he finally ended up switching the open registration in two thousand six. So, September two thousand six facebook became. Available for anybody thirteen with a valid email address. So the developers have not. made the postseason since the literal invention of facebook. And now, facebook pretty much runs the world in February two, thousand, six Dick. Cheney shot his friend. On a coil hunting trip in south Texas ranch side note I remember when that news story came out that was one of the most insane new stories of all time. It was like just an accidental misfiring were Dick Cheney shot his friend and like. Man It was. It was made to seem like the world was ending. I was like his friend ended up. Being okay. A HOBIE did I was once again I was eleven at the time but Yeah I. Just remember that it's like every time. I walked into like my parents living room and they were watching the it was all about how Dick Cheney shot his friend most insane time ever Sasha Baron Cohen's Borat came out. And you know Saas Barikot and also won the Golden Globe for best actor musical or. Crazy to think that he won for Barak Has Board is such an insane movie kids do not go watch that one wait until you're older also fun fact if you haven't already seen, but a Sasha, Baron Cohen is actually in the process of filming black to. So. I'm kind of excited for that one. I actually really liked Borat but I don't think boy who was going to be. You know as good also not to drop the mood or anything but two, thousand six, also the Steve Irwin the crocodile hunter died from the. Sting from the from the Stingray Big. BIG R.I.P to Steve Irwin It's crazy how long that man's legacies lasted you know he was just kind of like the Animal Planet. the Animal Planet Guy and you know he was a partisan spoofs for a while but Steve Irwin man lasting legacy for a long time. But that guy was very underrated you know big news billions for those people who are into celebrity breakups Reese Witherspoon and. Her husband. got a divorce Jennifer Aniston Vince Vaughn broke up and Sodhi Britney Spears and Kevin Federal Line which that started a whole like snowball effect of random stuff that was happening within. You know celebrity culture that you know is not safe to talk about on a podcast that's meant for all ages. So I'm not GonNa do it, but for anybody who was around at that time. You remember how wild it was just `Paparazzi pictures coming out in like these. How insane it was All move on from that Mel. Gibson, you know he just put out. I. Think. The Passion of the Christ had just came out and that he went on. His his entire like race racial rant after his Dui. That was absolutely nuts I could not believe that I was. I was insane moving on because I mean no one really wants to talk about any of that right now. Let's go to the top. I looked at the top ten movies of the year two, thousand six, just based off gross income. So these are just off the movies that were made side. No. A lot of these are kids movies, and that's because kids can watch the same movie over and over and over again every day and not feel any type of way about it. So a lot of these are kids movies, but the number one highest grossing movie. The, pirates of the Caribbean to number two was cars number three X. men last stand number four was the Davinci Code. Number Five Superman returns number six, Ice Age meltdown. You Got Happy Feet over the Hedge Casino Royale and running out the top ten was Talladega nights the ballot of Ricky Bobby. Easily my favorite movie on this entire list, the ballot or Ricky Bobby is a total classic and I swear was one of those movies that we watched every time you went to your friend's house. For an entire for the entire calendar year of two, thousand and seven, and I think it was the movie that everybody played until stepbrothers came out and when stepbrothers took its place and it was like every time your friend's house for an entire year two years it was like Oh what do you want to do? Oh let's watch stepbrothers. I honestly don't think I've watched the movie step brothers all the way through beginning to end since two thousand eight and I can still recite pretty much the entire movie. That's how much everybody was watching it back in the day 'cause will, Ferrell. was on the hottest of hot streaks. Top Ten billboard songs of the year. I know they said that Mariah Carey pad one they had one. She had a big run at the top ten but she didn't actually end the year in the top ten. So I'M GONNA go ten to one on top ten songs of the year by billboard. So you had at number ten you had beyond saying. Slim Thug's check on it. Justin Timberlake sexy back at number nine. You had camilion airs riding dirty. Chameleon here's ride and dirty came out. Last the podge Oh, my God. This is like what an insane world we're living in at that time you got ned number seven. Crazy by Naral Barkley was out number six was Natasha. Bedingfield unwritten. Wild. A wild year at number five Shakira's hips don't lie number four you got you're beautiful by James Blunt number three was permits skuas girls by Nelly Furtado number two was Sean Paul's temperature in number. One was hands down the worst song ever made I will die on this hill I don't care what anybody say if you play this song around me we're fighting. It No. No. If ands or buts about it, my mom had this as a ringtone for forever and my mom was one of those people who would not pick up the phone until the ringtone was almost all the way through. And so you had listen to the song every single time that she got a call from either friend a telemarketer just anything you had listen to song every time. So if anybody plays this song around me. Rage. You're getting nothing barrage and his bad day by Daniel, powder? Was the number one song in America in two, thousand and six. Man What a horrible time like I was honestly thinking that this is the like this was so crazy that this was happening at that time you know that. Just. Men that song was bad. I cannot believe how bad that song is Let me go back and let's compare and contrast the two, thousand, six padres and the twenty eighteen padres just to see. just compare stats from their best players and you know like all that kind of stuff. So because I still got a few minutes left in this segment, let's see. So like I said, there was one person two people on this team. Or batting more than three hundred better than the two, thousand and eight. Yeah two, thousand, six, squad see the League leader. They're the team leader in homers was a gone with twenty four. Lee Era team lead in home runs Manny Machado Sixteen. This guy played a third. Of the Games that. They were playing and he's only off by eight. Absolutely nuts let's check out the RBI lists. So number one RB. Manny Machado with forty six, number one rb I get her might cameron with eighty three tied with Brian Giles. Like A little more than half away in third of the Games. This is absolutely crazy. Let's see. So this team, the padres currently this year have one. Two, players that are under. One hundred. Plus. Let's check this other. They have three players were under a hundred, a PS plus and it was. The The ancient Vinnie Castio fifty four then Khalil Greene. And Josh Barfield had ninety six and ninety seven respectively Austin. Hedges only has a sixty two opiates pleasant Tommy famous as a seventy, two plus nothing too great. Insane how the world has changed. I could not believe it going back on it, but all I can really say is I am so excited the padres are in the postseason three changes in logos they had a color change. I mean. Absolutely insane they still according to baseball reference. They still only have three point four percent chance of winning the world series but they're my favorites to win the world series. I am rooting for them hardcore to win the championship and already everybody will be taking a quick break. I'll be right back after a word from our sponsors.

Thank you so much for sticking around. So basically how I am going to set up this next segment is like we like we've been sitting this whole time. This is the last week of the regular season. So basically. I'M ON ESPN DOT COM and we're looking at the hardest the toughest and easiest schedules of the final week and then I'm going to go and speech guys about free agents who can boost their stocks in. October because. It's going to be a wacky year. Everything's going to be going down. It's. We don't know what the. Significance of winter. The winter meetings are going to look like normally it's like baseball's national holiday where you know. We're looking at the winter meetings like okay. Things are going to go down moves they're going to be made. What's GonNa Happen, is our team finally going to be a contender after all these years we don't know. So basically after this segment I'm going to break that down just to see because you know like George, springer is going to be a free agent. You know there's a lot of big free agent names and you know we need to see like who can you know who's going to be battling the postseason and you know a rough a rough postseason for some of these guys can you know really throw the numbers down but the toughest remaining schedule for a team that has yet to clinch a playoff berth? Is the Miami Marlins. So there we is looking horrible they have seven games left in the season. They are four games against the braves in Atlanta and three games versus the Yankees in New York they have. Seven. Road Games. Against to the hottest teams in the game like the pitching staff for the braves has been okay. But their offense has been absolutely nuts. brave they've won seven of their last eleven. To to have a three game lead in the least. But this is also something that you know could be You know could be a pretty big deal because an only three game lead in Yo you got four games on the road granted in. ATLANTA. The braves probably to do pretty well. But there's still a chance. There is still a chance for the Miami Marlins to overtake the braves for first place in the analyst the Marlins or three and three against the braves in twenty twenty And you know they'll be you know we'll see. We'll see how we'll see how it goes. I guess I mean they're definitely going to Max free throwing. So I don't think the Miami marlins actually an overtake, the braves And then the Yanks. Averaging eight point, five runs per game during their ten game winning streak. AB So. lutely nuts. That they're doing that You know they're they're right when we were about to count them they just started just ripping homers left and right and just could not be stopped. It was absolutely. Insane number two, the mariners. So we were talking about the mariners you know they have three games versus the Astros big series coming up, and then they actually have four games and Oakland. They only show two on baseball reference, but they have a four game series against the Oakland as. You know. The Games at home versus the Astros? Maybe they get some home field advantage they can really some damage there get win. You know if they sweep, they can get within one game of the playoffs and then go into Oakland and Oakland has all the incentive to just tank those games like there's no reason for Oakland actually like even try with those games because the only real bad that could kill. THEM IS COW Lewis and Carl Lewis is a rookie. You know he's not going to go into the postseason and just start you know turning into Ken Griffey Junior I could see one especially with you know the like George Springer, all these guys that are going in and to free agency at the end of the year, and they have something to prove if you know the Houston. Astros. Do. Not Make the playoffs that be hilarious. So we'll see how that goes I'm rooting heavily for the Seattle Mariners if you thought that of. The. friggin San Diego padres have not been in the postseason. In a world half. The Seattle Mariners have the longest playoff drought in pro sports at nineteen consecutive years and finally my God hopefully that can change I am rooting heavily for the. mariners Number three, you have the Cincinnati reds. So this have three games versus brewers in three games versus the twins in Minnesota and the twins are going to come out and they're not going to have any chance like any any give in what they're going to be doing. They're going for the kill because they do not for for. Anything WANNA play the Yankees, the Yankees it we went over this last week where the Yankees are just like the logo on the helmet on the field. You know it's just like it's just a here we go again moment and they're defeated before they even get off the bus and that's exactly what's happening. They're they're definitely going to be like right now where the seating is, they're going to be playing the New York Yankees. So. MINNESOTA'S GONNA come out and do all that they can to change that You know maybe they tank maybe they tanked. So they have they play the white sox instead of the Yankees, but we'll see how that goes on the Milwaukee brewers. That's going to be a bloodshed series. They need to take those games from the brewers. The brewers are tied for the eighth spot in the you know in the in the playoffs so we'll They really need to put their foot on their necks and get them out of here, but it's GonNa be it's GonNa be interesting how they divide their pitching staff with Louis Sonny Gray and trevor. Bauer like who's going to against you know which team or if they go off this whole three days rest and you know really really prepare for the postseason that way number four is the giants, their four games against Iraqis who they are who are nipping at their heels actually to get into the postseason they're not technically out of it yet even other kind of far out there only two two games back but. Now, these four games against the rockies are huge and they have four games against the padres which really doesn't matter to anybody but them because of. You know because. The padres of made the postseason but the giants you know they've lost four other lasts seven and you know they're looking for their first playoff berth since they won the world series in wait no, they didn't win the world series in two thousand, sixteen they last won in twenty fourteen. Yeah. So last playoff appearance since twenty sixteen, you know they're twenty or they're sixteen, nine at home in twenty, twenty, two and four against the rockies one against one in five against the padres this year. So they have a pretty steep steep hill to climb especially if they're trying to solidify. Their place in the postseason. Number, five, you have the Toronto Blue Jays. The Toronto Blue Jays. They need to win. Think magic number is only like to. To get into the postseason, let's see. Let me go to baseball reference and see where they're at I. Don't know why even click off baseball reference on that page all time Let's see each Toronto there the other four games up their four game up on Seattle they're tied with. Houston for you know the seventh and eighth spot so Yeah they just got to win one of these Games the orioles are four and a half games out. So they're really not out of it much. So you know if they if they blow some of these games against the Yankees which are very capable of doing and they go into, you could see you know we could see the Orioles and the Blue Jays battling out in a playoff. WHO winner goes to the playoffs type situation that would be Not, only unexpected but absolutely insane especially since the orioles were there over under for the season was like setup twenty games and they've already beat that at the threat like twenty three or something like that I put them for under. So if you guys bet on that I am sorry. But who expected this I mean come on. Number six, the brewers. Three Games against the reds and they've got five games in Saint Louis against the cardinals Daniel Vogel had two homer game, the other day there I don't see this team make the playoffs I'm just going to come out and say, I, don't think they're good enough to make the postseason I think that they're just hanging on for dear life. You know they got the rebrand, the cool uniforms and all that kind of stuff but I i. if you're telling me that they're going to beat the reds I I honestly don't believe it. Moving on, we have the mets. The mets have three games against the raise of four games against the nationals. I. Don't know why they consider the nationals three like that. Big of a deal, the nationals like they gave up on the season before season even started and even then like the phillies have the same exact schedule there right behind him tied for seventh as well. four games against the nationals than three games against the race. So. That's in the phillies are really battling it out for the spot to get into the postseason and. You know they have the exact same schedule. The mets. They lost thirteen of their last twenty two since August twenty ninth you know. They've like in the phillies that are around five hundred this month and they're six Oh, the season against the nationals, they're able to complete a complete ten game sweep. against. The nationals for the entire season, the phillies will solidify themselves in the postseason, which is nice. Moving onto the easiest the Houston Astros like we went over the the three games in Seattle Mariners, and they have four games against the Rangers in Arlington and the Rangers or the third worst team in base second or third team in baseball So. Yeah. With a wapping point, three, nine, one, win percentage. The Astros are looking steady as you know. Locks. Again, the postseason unless. Catastrophe strikes Then you got the Saint Louis Cardinals, they have three games against the rose in Kansas City, they have their five games against the brewers there the opponents win percentage point four, six, one below five, hundred looking. Looking, pretty good for the boys in. Powder blue. I could call them in Saint Louis. Saint Louis. I think they're always locked into the postseason like if they missed the postseason, it's more shocking than anything Minin lastly, the padres have the easiest get one of the easiest schedules but since they already clinched, it doesn't. It doesn't really matter They have two games against the angels and four games against the giants. So let's look at some. Get some free agents. So. I think the one of the big free agents that has the most room to grow from I would say like, yeah, he's a number two pitcher to this guy could be the head of the best staff in baseball. Is Trevor Bauer like Trevor Bauer I think he's my Cy Young Award winner. In the NFL I love MACs freed. He's had a great year. I love you darvish he's had a great year but Trevor Bauer has been can't Miss Baseball He's absolutely dominated everyone and you know if he's able to find a way to just completely dominate these last week this season and figure out how to get the Cincinnati reds into the postseason and that is able to. Really. Put in a good effort in the postseason. You know really get maybe even get to the bubble and he has about three. Good. Ace like starts in the postseason Trevor Bauer could get. I wouldn't say Garrett Cole Money He will get. Paid. This upcoming season and no, one can really say anything. You know Michael Brantley. He's up there. He's had a pretty big. You know he's been pretty disappointed you always. Say He's been a disappointment in the last three series with the Indians thirteen seventeen and eighteen You know he did put go he did play. Okay for the Astros last season but you know if he's able to make it to the postseason this year, he really needs to put in big numbers so we can get another massive contract because Michael Brantley is a d. h. getting older. You know is a he's a great fit especially if the NFL adapts the you know the the universal d. h. I feel like you know the sky's limit for Michael Brown and he could play until he's forty he's GonNa be a great option like The guy just hits. That's all he does. He just hits over and over again hits hits it Another good one? Didi Gregorius de Gregori signed a one year fourteen, million dollar deal with the phillies and this dude is been absolutely insane. He has more like he's lowering his strikeout percentage. He's upping his walks percentage. He still has the power You know the Yankees kind of gave up on him last year. Didi Gregorius. If he has a big postseason for the Philadelphia phillies look for him to cash in DJ Lemay who at a two year twenty, four, million, dollar deal of fierly underpaid. I mean he's been at the top of the batting title race for the past two seasons. He's tough five and. This year like TJ the mayhew can absolutely get paid. especially if you know he's the leader of the Yankees lineup going. Probably the lcs this year that's what I would say. You know. The next one that they put Marcello. Zona. Listen. Marcello Zona. Yes. His stalking go very high. But. His stock is high as anyone's going to the postseason this year. Alexandropolis do what's right re-sign Marcello Zona because my God. Can this guy rake we need him. We have to have them, and if we have a Universal D.. H.. Lock. Him Up. For. Six years. Five years. Five years of Marcello soon as D. H. I think we're GonNa win the world series. Gt Mutoko I think I. Think Jt Real Mute Oh yeah. He they say he's the consensus on the market. Absolutely. This guy hits tanks I. Don't think he's stocking go any higher. George Springer is a big one. Mushy, Hilton NOCCO really needs avid good season 'cause. Yeah. He's not I don't think he's going to be you know really highly sought after his a number one he can pretty get some pretty. He can get some good money going into like maybe like a number two spot I see him I don't think it will ever be number one. You know the Jays. Actually make it to the postseason and have a decent season Robbie Ray. Had horrible seasons the past couple years he had a seven point eight four era last year and got traded to Toronto, and then he has a five nine four in his four outings with Toronto, like he's just not pitching that great and if we know anything sports one. One good like postseason series and you can get a message money for no real reason other than you played pretty well in this postseason, maybe we can figure it out kind of like A. If Anybody Remembers Burnett like I feel like Burnett was that guy he was right out of the League no one really was carrying anymore. He was his last stop because he was mad cheap they took him to Pittsburgh, and they tweet some things and the next thing you know he has like a five year contract coming to them and is like a really good pitcher for the Pittsburgh pirates. So who knows maybe Robbie Ray could be the next. Aj Burnett which isn't really saying much. All right. Everybody I'm going to be taking my last break and we'll be right back to go over these series to watch for the weekend. I already kind of went over that to a little bit but. You know we gotta do our deep dive I'm going to be right back up to these words. Want to know the latest and soccer the listen to the golden state media concepts. Soccer podcast from M. L. S. is the world of the Premier League, we've got you covered the latest update the hottest matches news on the League's top players. It's the state media concept soccer podcast. Listen. Bob. Are Everybody? Let's close this episode out like we always do soap. What it is, I have the ESPN. schedule open for 'em obese and just going through the look. I. Don't know what it is about this but the episode the day that the episode normally comes out. The pitching matchups aren't great. But the day after. It comes out the pitching matchups are in saint like there's so many good pitches pitcher's throwing on on Wednesday but for Tuesday, you got some good throwers here and they're like, you got Garrett Cole versus. Tanner. the. Yankees and the Toronto Blue Jays. That's going to be on ESPN Brett. Anderson. Versus Sony Grades Pretty Good Matchup Got Jose Urania. He's definitely gonNA hit Ronald Cuneo because he does it every single time. I really hope that if he does hit if he does hit run other Kunia I just hope that they like actually suspend him because this dude Like a Kunia was on like record tear last year and Urania hit him in the forearm and he was out for a week and then the first he had against the rain again, he took them deep, which was a major just middle finger to them but you know I, was like. Like how many times are you going to allow this one dude hit our best player every single time he plays them every time he's on fire. Jose Rainha hits them directly in the arm happens every single time and I guarantee you it's going to happen on Tuesday So keep an eye out for that Uranus Cole Hamill Steve Cohen. Cole Hamels. Can, Can Bounce back because he had a pretty rough start in his first started the year last last week Blake Snell versus Seth Lugo Blake Snell. Obviously he's much must watch TV but seth. Lugo, he's nothing to nothing to really write home about Yeah Baltimore Boston. That's only really big for Baltimore fans because they're still trying to get play themselves into that position to where you know they can play the Toronto Blue Jays and A. Winter Winter goes to the playoff type situation So, Keegan. Keegan Aitken versus Nick Pa- Vada. I don't know either of those names Sorry. From sleeping on you guys. But yeah, I don't I don't know any of those names you got Detroit versus Minnesota which is going to be great You Got Tariq School Ball versus currently undecided Tariq's coup ball is he's He's a fun pitcher to watch I do like to recall Detroit. Maybe a year early on you guys because I tend to be a yearly on a lot of people. But you know Terri sue both I I'm I'm pumped for him and then yeah, Gavin even better pitching matchup going tomorrow. But okay to that in a little bit Let's see brady singers. For. The Kansas City royals he's a real high spot Brady Singer everybody knows Sam. He's The pitcher from Florida who was absolutely dominant in his career with the Florida gators and then come to the OB and is pretty dominant in the MLB You know he's really fun to watch a really do love watching it. I don't know where am I love watching pitchers came from I normally don't like pitchers. They're kind of weird In will every yeah and like every aspect there. Some of the weird or people I've ever met in my life but. I do actually watch like to watch pitchers ball out from time to time. Yacht Zach Davies, versus Griffin canning that's going to be a pretty good up. I. Mentioned this earlier in the show Houston Seattle. Fromberg Valdez versus LG newsom that's going to be a good pitching matchup. I think the match up of the entire day is Oakland versus the dodgers it's going to be on ESPN. Frankie montage versus Dustin may doesn't maize looks like he's going to be a parabola problem in a few years like when he's. He's like. He wasn't even the big name coming into this year at he's just absolutely carved teams up. He looks like huge piece going into the postseason like dust in May is one. Great Pitcher and I can't wait to see how he progresses. Just within the dodger organization he's. The token red. Meat. As a redheaded guy I'm a huge dustin may guy but You know with the big league lettuce that he's got on his head and just the movement on his hundred mile an hour or two seem and just how kind of energetic is on the mound like when he gives when he gives up a ball that he thinks is hard hit he's jumping around. He's very you know like he's just very passionate about pitching and you can tell in his His Games in it's it's a lot of fun to watch. I really do love watching just in May and they got kyle freeland versus drew Smiley to out Tuesday eight, forty, five PM Central Colorado at San Francisco. Now Wednesday this is the day. What the heavy hitters on the mound. First of all, you're starting the day off with Chris Paddock Chris Paddock is going to be playing He's going to be facing high may BEREA. BEREA. Of the angels. So. Yeah, Chris. Paddock to start the day. Let's see. you got Lucas Gio Lido versus Zach. OOP skews. ME. Luke's Julia Overseas Zach Police AC. That's a great matchup. Masahiro. Tanaka is going to be on the mound. You Got Adrian Hauser versus Trevor Bauer that's a big match up you got versus Nick. Marga vicious merge vicious. Sure. We're going to go with that Zach rinky on the Mound Marga vicious. I've never seen him throw but I'm going to be watching CAL Hendrix on the mound six toe Sanchez is GonNa. Throw Tyler. Glasgow. Stephen Matt's. Casey Mayes is playing Kenta Majeida. That's my matchup of the day right there. That's the game on tuning into Casey mayes versus Kenta Maeda. I cannot wait you're Carlos Martinez Danny Duffy Schon Maniaci, you got Julio or es thrown against Sean Mnaya. Mike what more could you want as fans of the game? Like these games, it's getting down to the wire light unique clutch performance after clutch performance and. It's coming and it's coming from all these guys and it's incredible. Hope. It's match freed because the braves are undecided on their throwing against six Oh Sanchez. Man I. Hope it's Max freed. Max. Frieder Union Henderson just have the two futures of baseball going up against each other I. think that would be sick to watch Nathan you volley is GonNa be throwing I. Don't know how great he's done this year I don't know if he's back to like earlier Nathan. You've already what he wasn't that good or if he was world series Nathan, you've all the where he's absolutely carving people up and there's just no chance of hitting him chase. Anderson is facing off against Masahiro. Tanaka you know. Everybody knows that's a big series of for the Toronto Blue Jays I don't have to state that over and over again Danny Duffy versus Carlos Martinez is a big matchup I. Love that Danny Duffy Felix underrated just because he's in Kansas City and not many people watch the royals You know Carlos Martinez is back as the starter versus Saint Louis. He, intrigues me so much because I have no idea if he's like A. If he's just like going to be their bullpen peace or if he's there starter or if he's just everywhere in between like Carlos Martinez I think is probably the most versatile pitcher in baseball. Just because he closes games, he starts games he can come in in the sixth and the seventh and the Eighth Lake it's just you never know when Carlos Martinez could be coming into a game, but he could come in for every game and it's Kinda. Wild But yeah. Let's see my game of the day. Casey Mayes. Catta my Ada of course got Detroit. Minnesota other big match up those two teams clenched. It's not really that big of A. Match, up the as in the dodgers if they would've played that earlier that would have been way sweeter. Let's see other game to watch Ohio Lucas. Gio Lead over Zach police Ale central always has been has been pumping out game after game to watch this year it, the Al Central has been my favorite division. It is the most competitive division I love that division and I kind of hope that one of the teams from that division wins the world series or at least represents the American League in the World Series I, think that that would be.

GSMC Baseball Podcast Episode 306: Legacies at Stake

"The. Golden State concepts, baseball podcasts we cover everything majorly from spring trees to the world series got your favorite club cover from New York to Boston to La. This is the golden state media concepts baseball podcast. Thank you all for tuning into the. See Baseball podcast brought to you by the GMC podcast network. I am your host, Evan Worthy, and happy Friday to everybody out there listening to the show we are finally made it. This is the last weekend of the season. I. That was talking about this on the last episode like I couldn't. I can't imagine I couldn't believe how fast everything went and here we are. We're at the last weekend there are I. Think five spots in the postseason that still need to be filled to in the American league. And I think three in the national. League. I know there's like seventeen still fighting for a playoff spot. I'll dive into that a little bit later but We just got some breaking news that That Gordon after fourteen years has retired from the League fourteen seasons going with the Kansas City royals. Never had the. Over overly outstanding career You know if he was, I think it was a number one overall pick in the draft and you know he never really made it to the point where you know. He was kind of all timer but not many number one overall picks have I think only two number ones overall picks have made it to the mobile hall of fame and with a Chipper Jones and Ken Griffey Junior I might be missing out on a lot but I think. I think there's only a couple whose actually made it. So for him to have a fourteen year vaguely career for him to be you know, I would say above average player overall in you know very, very good defensive player overall for most of those seasons you know he had he had a great career and you know we wanNA world series champion and was one of the big. Big. Parts of the you know Twenty fifteen twenty was twenty fourteen twenty fifteen run of the Kansas, city royals who arguably his one of my favorite world series champions of the past twenty years Just the way that they played the game they played it really old school they were. You know we're GonNa, you know put pressure on you and you know it doesn't matter how long you've been in the league we don't care. We're still going to force you to make those quick decisions and like the like the hosmer play where he rushes home and Lucas Duda who's been playing in the League for a very. Long time he's you know he's been a pro's pro for forever and You know he just has a little league moment in just sales throw at home plate like Dow was one of those plays where I was like you know, I, get this team. This is I love the team. I love the Kansas City rose ever since then and it was You know just they were just really fun to watch And then you know Alex Gordon calls it quits one of the few I'm sure he's getting a statue. I think he has. He's probably getting a statue just for being a lifer like Kansas City Royal Lifer I could see I could see him you know getting memorialized even though like he did for really did anything to spectacular he had a lot of gold gloves that'd be Kinda like giving Tori hunter a statue outside of target field but still you know like if Torii hunter played all of his career at you know in Minnesota like. I could see why you know they would have given him a statue and I feel like since there wasn't that any success really any success in the royals organization since George Brett and Bo Jackson, and those guys like why wouldn't they? You know why wouldn't they memorialize them because you know he helped bring a championship and he are honestly never left So happy trails to Alex Gordon. You had a great career nothing too over the top, but it was a fun player to watch least So moving back onto the playoffs. So the MLB playoffs starts Tuesday September twenty-ninth That's when they said the open, the wild card round, and there has been a few injuries that could really You know really affect how. The wildcard series plays out starting on Tuesday. So the bay one over the weekend was Mike Clemenger of the San Diego padres the San Diego padres of. We went over this last episode. First Time, they've been the postseason since two, thousand, six there the Cinderella team everybody loves them But you know Mike Levinger he exited the game on on Wednesday afternoon with the fought in a five two loss just after one inning due to a flare up of bicep tightness that was caused him to get scratched from his star on Saturday. So he had already missed a star with his you know bicep tightness and then he goes out on Wednesday. Same thing happens to them. Yikes. So. they did former Ted or further tests including an MRI and on the post game and the PADRES are still awaiting results to this point you know their coach ended up saying we're going to wait for the results and see what the doctors have to say I don't want to speculate or anything like that because I honestly just don't know now. You're probably thinking like, okay. They're the second best team in the National League. Like, they were on a killer tear before they got my clovinger. They'll be fine which arguably is true. Yes. I mean they do have a cy young candidate in lament. Definitely GonNa Start Game One if Clemenger isn't available. But it does get a little rocky for the for the San. Diego. Padres warm. Once you go down past met you know they got Zach Davies in Chris Paddock which could be fine for a best of three series. All they gotta do is win too. I I bet that you know lament is going to get the first one I mean he has a two Oh seven era and is a contender for the strikeout title. He's been one of the most. pitchers. In the league this year like. I think that you know. If you have on the mound, you have a pretty good shot of you know doing some real damage. So. You've got to get one win at his activities and Chris Paddock, which is not you know not terrible. But when they get into the seven game series, you got lament Davies Paddock and. That's pretty much all they really have because they just put Garrett Richards you know they put him transitioning to the bullpen and You know the padres manager has yet to say that anything has changed. So it looks like if Clemenger is not able to bounce back and he's not going to be healthy for the postseason, they could be running with the three man rotation with Lament Paddock Davies. Now. Three men rotations that has worked before I. Don't know if it will work. You know throwing every other day. You know the traveling you know less wear and tear like Kinda stuff You know since they're in the bubble but Like. I don't know I. Don't know how you know how. Good they'll be able to fair without Mike Classrooms because my cleanser let's be honest. He was one of the best pitchers in the American league the past three years he's been one of the best pitchers in the American league and he goes on the. National. League. In does not skip a beat because there has been pitchers who? Were dominant in the American league and they switched sides and go to the National League and they just lose it for some reason I don't know what it is but you know we've seen it before we see a with position players we've seen it with. Pictures like you see with everybody like the first time I ever saw I was with Barry Zito like Barry Zito you know when I first started coming up liking baseball and you know two, thousand, two, hundred, one, thousand, two, he was the guy and then you know he goes from the Oakland as in just crosses the bridge overdue San Francisco, and next thing you know he goes from one of the top pitchers in the game to like someone who can you know? Hovering, between you know the bigs AAA like he's a long reliever is your fifth starter and then he had a little comeback in their running the you know the world series and all that kind of stuff there three three titles and six years, and all that kind of you know we saw with Matt Holliday Matt Holliday also with the Oakland athletics, he was killing it in Colorado goes to the Oakland athletics doesn't do that well, and then in Oakland gives them up and you know gives them to Saint, Louis. and. Then he's just out there being old Matt. Holliday again just because I feel like. I don't know what it is, but it's it. It's a thing that happens. I don't know. I don't know what it is but That's definitely. Something that. Really. You know we showed you know commend him for because you know he was able to transition you know from. Cleveland to San. Diego. Completely, new area during a pandemic in you know was able to just have like a seamless transition with the team so. You know we'll keep an eye out for Mike. Mike clovinger. But you know if Mike is not able to go. Let's a huge huge huge huge blow. For the San Diego padres and speaking of another huge blow on the rotation Max Freed. Of the Atlanta Braves you know for now the hope is that his early exit from his last regular season start wishes precaution to prevent him for furthering messing up you know his his left ankle he turned it while fielding a bunt from Marseille. You know he he wanted to stay in the game, which is you know that's cool. I'm glad you wanted to stay in the game maximum, but you know you already clinched a playoff spot. Save yourself like you have to. Be Smarter about that. Especially when it's looking, it's going to be three starters the top three pitchers in the brakes rotation going into the postseason. Are All going to be under the age of twenty four twenty, five, I think it is Max breed is the oldest. We have ham we have what was Oh man what was his name The. So we have him going with Ian Anderson and Carl Right Cow, right? That's who it is You know. We have Cole Hamels. But he's experiencing shoulder fatigue already and he's only pitch no one game or two games. So that's not looking. So great for us Coal Ham or a Max freed is one of the best pitchers in the entire game he hasn't I don't think he's lost this year he seven or eight no you know He's obviously of Great Cy Young, award candidate I don't think he's I. Think he's probably fourth I have Darvish. Darvish. No. Bauer Darvish. degrom. Then, Max freed from I like hierarchy of the Cy Young Trevor Bauer should win especially after the last game that they played pretty much pitched him into the postseason if they can. You know just. Hold off the all the teams behind going into To close out the season I. Think you know they they took over the eighth seed. So it looks like they're going to be in the playoffs as your just like I said, they just got a hold off and you know survive in advance pretty much. They're getting to the postseason But. You know when? With the braves back to them You know with Max freed Enersen is his rookie year not even a like a year. He's had three starts and he's looking at. You know the number two starter on postseason team. That's like that is the lighter than light like that kid is you know he's great and everything but that's he's way over his head like way way way over his head and you know relying on right when he's had one of the most rocky seasons. I've ever seen from a starting pitcher like you know we we. have. Held out for Kyle right for a long time. We've heard a lot of great about him and maybe one of these days you'll be able to kick into gear. He's kind of like the same as Tuckey Tucson where it's just like you hear these things and you see every once in a while you see the flashes and you're just like, Oh this guy's incredible if you can just figure it out and be consistent but it's just like are we able to wait long enough to be consistent because you know we can't rely on right in Anderson and Max free together and be like okay well, this is titled Team No it isn't not with that rotation. No. Sir. and. especially, when Max Pre keeps getting hurt this is like the second or third time getting hurt this month. He's at injuries flare up. You know grow albeit very, very minor injuries. But he's had injuries pop up you know multiple times this year and it's just it's just not looking good for the guys over there in Atlanta moving on. To Saint Louis. Carlos. Martinez, you know He. Just grabbed his left side trying to run off to first base like fell off to the first base side of the mound grabbed his back. He has a back strain You know it could just be because you know Saint Louis they missed so much of the season to start the year and they had to. Try and recover so much. They had thirteen games in ten days and they still somehow had a winning record You know there are lot not looking great right now you know offensively they're only banning to a one on that last road trip with seven homers an eight games they've been held the one hit or less with runners in scoring position, and somehow they want to of those games with out a hit with runners in scoring position. So it's like they've done their best to just like turn water into wine I guess and just. Power through The obstacles, they've you know set before themselves like their offense has been struggling. We've never seen. You know a cardinal offense do more with less I. Feel or at least my license I've been paying attention So having someone who is a key person in the pitching staff go down right before the postseason when your offense is struggling and Martin is just houck's. He's he's he's a phenomenal pitcher and they're going to need everyone that they can do you know the whole the runs down. So they can win those games without being able to a score with a runner in scoring position. You know so you know huge loss for the Saint Louis Cardinals going into the postseason To pick things up lastly, let's talk about the twins. So I was saying that the twins, it was a huge week for him because they needed to overtake first place in the AL central to give themselves a chance to move on to the postseason and who they rely on to do that while they successfully did it and it is thanks to Kenta my Ada probably the most. I would say, surprising. Just. masterful pitchers in the league this year, you know you'll out four baserunners in last game in six innings four hits. No walks nine ks he lowered his Mo be leading whip two zero point seven six and in the expansion era since one thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, one, only twenty, sixteen Clayton Kershaw and two thousand Pedro Martinez has pitched at least sixty innings as starter with a lower whip. Clayton Kershaw. And, Pedro Martinez to with the greatest pitchers that ever thrown to the greatest seasons ever had by a pitcher. And Kenta Maeda is third on that list. And to be fair. He's not even going to win the CY, young this year because Shane Bieber had ten or more strikeouts in eight of his twelve starts. Like Cantona should in any other year, win the CY young. But Shane be were absolutely dominated You know it's not like the dominance over the Tigers for the twins was you know some outlier Maya retired for twelve of his first fourteen against the white sox in his first game with the twins out retiring eighteen of twenty against Cleveland then came in got fifteen his first sixteen against Pittsburgh and Milwaukee, and there was a no hit bid into the ninth inning against the brewers. That's the type of year that came to my aid has had. It sucks that he's not going to get more recognition for. Not only young before MVP has dad do need some. MVP. votes. He has been lights out this year. The one thing that the Minnesota twins needed last year was another pitcher outside of Jose Barrios and they got who of Randy Don KNAPP has been killing. It Kent my eight has been killing it rich hills been killing at this year and so as. Well Jose Barrios hasn't really made noise, but he's been one of the most consistent pitchers in the bigs and speaking of those guys to be taking a quick break and we'll be right back to talk about some of the older vets that have a lot riding on this postseason legacy. Wise. We'll be right back to talk about that in just a moment. Listen Up Sports bettors.

This is your ultimate stop for everything sports the Golden State media concepts, boards, podcast should I say more from the NFL MLB, the NBA to MMA, all in here the Golden State Media Concept's sports podcast listen. All right everybody we are back. So let's talk about. The best topic to talk about in all barbershops when it comes to sports. It's legacy. So when remembering and going over the greats of sports whoever they are you always talk about what they didn't always that argument. Oh who was better than everything is always based off. Well, what did they do? What did their career look like? What was their lasting legacies and enormous comes down to winning championships? So. We got some. We have some star studded players who are still looking for their very first rang. And they do not have a lot of time left. and. So I'm going to be going over some players who really really need their ring not would say not need their ring, but you know have a lot to gain from winning a ring if they were able to get one this season first and foremost you have to start off with. One of the best pitchers of the past decade. Just. Absolutely, out of his mind was in the playoffs every single season. Of the past ten years. And never won a title I'm not saying the best but one of the best it is Zach Lanky of the Houston Astros. The reason I have Zachary I is because he's played seventeen seasons in the bigs. and. He is thirty seven years old. He came so close to winning ring last year with Houston but. You know he started game seven against the nationals. He was great through six innings, left the game holding a to nothing lead and the Washington went on to win the game he had. Garrett Cole is now in. New York you Justin verlander down for the season Grinky is the number one to ace for the. Houston Astros this year. and. You know it's kind of all on his shoulders. It really hasn't been all on his shoulders. In the postseason you know. Whenever. He went it was you know he went with the I think he started off with the angels he went with the angels when he was there for about six weeks before he left and went to the dodgers. went to the dodgers. He was on there for a while and then he went to a he went to China and I, think one. Playoff series with Arizona he may have missed the playoffs with Arizona and then they trade him to Houston, and he is arguably the third starter. When he's in Houston, he's never been the number one guy in the postseason. And this is his time. This is his time to Shine Zach, rinky show us. What you can do you do not have a lot of time left my friend especially with a fifty, six mile an hour is quote unquote I don't even call any fish such as a really really slow careful speaking of big and now slow curve balls. Number two on the list with Clayton Kershaw. The Los Angeles dodgers now everybody knows Clayton. Kershaw. Easily hands down. Best. Pitcher, the twenty tens. There's no debate like you can say, Oh, in the postseason, he did whatever who cares. During the regular season he was the most unstoppable pitcher. One the Games. Ever you could argue the game has ever seen. Like his ten year run was absolutely nuts and the one thing that. Trips me out especially after reading this. He's only thirty two. Like I think Clayton Kershaw has been in the league. For ever. Like just like I don't remember a Lee season without Clayton Kershaw ever. and. It's only been thirteen years like the dude has so much more time. He's only thirty two years old and if he's thrown grinky that means he's got five more years of being a great pitcher you know. He needs to win a championship sooner or later. Like if he goes down without winning a title, it will be. Like heartbreaking. always got. Let's see what we got here. You know in his playoff career he's got nine different seasons where he's been in the postseason. He's at one, hundred, fifty eight and a third innings. He's got a four point, four, three play-off Yara, which is two runs higher that is marks on the regular season. That's not great. But everybody knows his struggles earlier in his career but you know it seems like after that. He was always the guy that you know. got. Left in too late, it's like Pedro Martinez in two thousand and. You know what I'm saying it's like a you know bill. Simmons has when he does the Ra- watchable it's like a what is it the grady little managerial f. up like what was the managerial f. up here and it? He calls it the greatest manager up because he had the right time to pull pedro given up hit after hit after hit and he leaves them in the game. And you know we just ends up losing the game. So you look like Pedro Martinez choke that game away when. He should have been out. He did his job and Clayton Kershaw was the same way you know he was always in the game. Way later than he should have been and then he no, he gives up stairs and Matt Adams homers and you know those pictures will forever live in dodger infamy So. I think that's one thing that they're starting to do better which is lowering as Yarra in the postseason. so we'll see how. They. Handle him in the postseason this year especially with you know Walker Bueller not being too. You know steady this year you know the up the rise of Derek May and you know all the pictures that they have down in. La, we'll see what they have to do with all of them over there. Moving on we got Joey votto next Joey votto has been a league for thirteen fourteen seasons. He's thirty seven years old. One of the best hitters. One of I'm not saying best but one of the best hitters of the past ten years. You know. He's never advanced past the divisional series he's got. To fifty batting average a three, twenty, four on base percentage, a two, fifty slugging percentage career postseason line. You know he's got a pretty decent power surge going through right now he could get redemption. This team is rather hot. They have the pitching staff to keep them going Maybe it just took a little while to figure it out. WHO REALLY KNOWS You know what I'm saying. So Joey votto is a great candidate for you know legacy wise. Because if he's able to, you know get really hot. This pitching staff you know brings that Trevor Bauer like energy onto the field. You know there's there's a chance. You know there is a chance that he can go down as you know, one of the great ones just off one playoff. I don't even think he has the win necessarily if he wins. Cool whatever. But you know even if he doesn't win I think that just getting to the see even if that the world. Series. Like. You know he's GonNa get his roses. and honestly, if he's able to make it to the world series and not win I don't know if you'll be back next year to be completely honest with you he may write out his contract but I'm not really sure. moving on, we have a guy who's on the fringe of the playoffs probably not going to do a whole bunch once the playoffs start just piano playing devil's advocate here. It's Evan Longoria. So Evan Longoria has been league for thirteen years. He is thirty five years old Everybody remembers him from you know winning rookie of the year in two, thousand eight you know he carried the race that first postseason advance all the way to the world series and their first postseason you know. But in the World Series Longoria went one for twenty. In those five games against the phillies you know he's yet to return to the world series and he hasn't played in the postseason all since two thousand thirteen. You know This giants team, you know they weren't really supposed to do much but they're kinda surprising everybody. It'd be nice to see Evan Longoria back in the postseason especially because you know. Thirty five years old like doesn't have a ton of time left but you know it's it's he's one of those players that you know. You Really WanNa. See You really just WanNa see him play. That's not really all boils down to get him in Longoria to the postseason even if it's with those terrible giants moving on, we have A. Shaky. Character to say the least Ryan Braun of the Milwaukee brewers you know he's the all time home runs leader Bruce. History. is going to become a free agent after the season's over he has a fifteen million dollar mutual option for twenty twenty one. Probably going to pick that up I. don't see him getting fifteen million dollars next year from any team unless he wants to win the world series then he's probably GonNa go to like New York or somewhere but. Brewers fans I don't know if this is a good thing or not but I can see him I I can see him staying You know it's possible that he has played his final Game Miller Park maybe. you know there's a possibility. So I throw that out there but you know. I don't really think so you know. Braun. He need like if he can power them to the world series once again they will I think they're on the outside looking in of the you know the playoff picture right now. I don't think he's got it. I don't think the brewers are going to be able to do it. It would take a massive power. It would have to be the Washington nationals of last year like you would have to turn into Juan Soto and just do something absolutely insane that we really have not seen before for him. Do you know for them to get to the world series especially with their pitching the way it is but Ryan Braun definitely has a lot to gain from a I would say a really good to great playoff situation Here's somebody I've always wanted to see succeed like. I don't necessarily love the team. But. If this player goes on to win the world series, I'll be happy in its Andrew mccutchen and your mccutchen. You know he's thirty four years all these played twelve seasons you know The farthest I think he's gone in the postseason was the divisional or the wild card games where I think he went to to back to back in Twenty, twelve and twenty thirteen no, those weren't even a thing. then. pull. Was it man? When did he go? I think I to Wild Card Games, the Pittsburgh pirates went to, and they just happened to lose those games, which is a major bomber always wanted Andrew mccutchen go further in the postseason I think that Pittsburgh in the playoffs for the You know for the pirates was always like bowls times that they were there. They were a never seen. Pirates fans at Games, and then they just showed up showed out and it looked like it made some lives, hell. On that field so You know just seeing what he's done. You know he was the twenty thirteen nl MVP he's homeless and thirteen playoff games. He's got a six hundred on base plus slugging like. I just hope he does well, I honestly just hope he does well, like if Philly does make the postseason and they make a run even though I don't like the phillies out all I won't be mad I. Think you know it's it's it's good for baseball to see him out there winning moving on we got. We got Nelson. Cruz. So Nelson cruises forties been in the League for Sixteen Years Everybody remembers he was you know kind of the scapegoat of You know the David Freese triple in twenty eleven world series game six You know he's. He's also one of the best like hitters. In playoff history. Blake he's one of the best hitters not a great fielder. I don't know why he was out in right field in that series that was colossally stupid you know. With one hundred and fifty playoff appearance or yeah. Playoff Plate appearances he's got a one point zero, twelve opie S, which ranks fifth all time. Behind Babe. Ruth. Albert pools. George. Brett. And Carlos Beltran. Fifth all time. In playoff. Oh PS. Like. They're gonNA need every single bit of that. I think that they're facing off against the Houston Astros I. Don't if I'm not mistaken. So Nelson Cruz is going to be huge for that series. He could go down as one of the best. Ever, if you know, the twins are able to put out this magical postseason run that everybody kind of wants them to have like if you're not rooting for the Minnesota twins, what are you doing? You have to be Justin you're a Yankee fan or something like that or a hater moving on we got. I call them, Nelson Cruz Jr... Turns out they've been in the league the exact same amount of years but one is just three years older. It's Edwin encarnacion. So Edwin encarnacion. Age Thirty seven sixteenth year the bigs. He's had some amazing battles in the playoffs especially when he was with the blue, the Blue Jays and Texas Rangers series. Dow is an incredible battle I. loved every minute of it You know the Edwin Kurnaz Ian he brings so much to the table. You know not just in the postseason but. You know just to that White SOx lineup up with all that youth there. You know that experience is unparalleled like you need that experience and you know he's he's I would say he could be pretty undervalued, and especially if they're going to be the team that's playing the Yanks because they're gonNA match up there, the fourth seed, the Yanks of the fifth seed they're going to be in guaranteed field in the south side of Chicago. What's going to happen? Nobody really knows. I, think that that makes the playoffs infinitely more interesting to the fact of the white sox are planning enke's not the twins because we know the twins are just going to see it and they're gonNA during the headlights rollover and it's done. But the white sox I think the white sox are just young and cocky enough to not care about the Yankees have to say or do. And is going to be beautiful to watch. I cannot wait. I really. Do hope that that is the series moving forward. Moving on. We got Nick Marquess. Of the Atlanta Braves Nick Markes has been the League for fifteen years as h thirty, six kind of running out of time. Especially, you know he's not a power hitter so that doesn't really justify him. You know going into a d. h. role unless you know their lineup is stacked with power and they just need some to drive in runs probably unlike the six or seven told that's where he would probably do is best damage you know. I'm glad he did decide to play but this year you know in the last two seasons which were Atlanta's LDS losses He's bad at one twenty, one to sixteen and one, fifty two he's not doing a great job. You know the braves have yet to win a postseason series since two thousand and one I think Nick marquess definitely he's needs to be the nick marquee the regular season Knick mark cakes for the braves the you know actually. Do something in the postseason who their face to play against right now mainly because that will change but My guess is probably going to be the Miami Marlins, and if that is the case then. Boy Howdy like just hold on tight braids, sands, I don't. There's something about the postseason where I just don't trust it. I mean I started they haven't won a playoff series since I started watching baseball so. I mean, what can we? What can we really do moving on? We only got one more actually. So lastly, I think this is a big Legacy. Guy. Mainly just for you know. 'cause he's incredibly underrated. Really underrated player in his Michael Brantley Michael Brantley been a League for twelve years. Age Thirty, three, he's. A, very underrated hitter he was in the world series a few years ago when the Indians lost to the Chicago cubs Also what was it Michael Brantley struck out against Daniel Hudson, to end game seven of the twenty, nine, hundred world series you know he just needs bounceback I think he's still kind of reeling from that. He hasn't had a year Reno know really to rely on You know he's bad two, ninety nine in each of his past six seasons like he just happens to end. With a two nine batting average all the time you know. He brings a lot of stability to the lineup. 'cause you know what you're getting out of him. He's kind of like Nick. Marquees like you just kind of know what you're getting from them. You know So Michael Brantley has a lot to his legacy, the post season and speaking of postseasons. I'm going to be taking a quick break and we'll be right back to go over the standings entering the last weekend of the season we have one, two, three, four, five teams still. That still have a shot. They still do have a shot of making the postseason. I will be talking about that and what the you know what the What the seeding looks like all that stuff I will be right back.

Can you tell how excited we all are for the postseason is the number one topic it's just like the trade deadline. It's just like winter meetings. It's just like free agency. What's happening whereas you're going to go how do you feel it's going to go. And here we are. We got. The last weekend of the season. So the clench spots are. As braves, dodgers, white SOX, raise twins, Yanks, padres Cleveland, and the cubs. So. We still have five teams that are in the hunt for the postseason. Two of them are in the AL, West. And then the next three are all national league teams. So everybody in the American, League is gone besides the angels of all people and the mariners. The angels are two and a half games back of Houston. The manners are three games back of Houston now. That is crazy to think about especially since the angels were doing so poorly. So let's go baseball reference. Let's see what they're who they're playing in the last. Week of the. Last week end. Sorry. So they got a three games set with the dodgers. Day are not gonNA make it. I'm sorry to Angel Fans. They're not going to make it. Is it? They're just not Andrew Heaney is on the mound against the dodgers. Today, what's the? What's The twenty fourth tomorrow? So while you're listening to this, there's a night game angels dodgers Andrew Heaney's on the mound. Good Luck Dylan Bundy. You have the best chance of winning that game but yet angels. Sorry Buddy you guys are not making it we went and looked at the Seattle Mariners They have a pretty. there were pretty rough opponent I think, yeah the Oakland as they have a four game settings Oakland Games back, and then if I remember correctly he's in has a three-game set with Texas four-game four-game set with Texas they got. Christian Javier on the mound Jose you're. Your quality, your quickey. Sorry he's facing cow cody then you've got You know they've yet to announce who they're gonNA pitch. They're throwing against cow Gibson and Jordan lyles. So you know not looking too great for all those angel and Seattle fans but you know it's it. It leads to some excitement heading into the last week the year you know we'll we'll see of course, we're going to monitor that I'm sure one of those games gonna be Zach rinky throwing especially if they if especially, if they need clinching game like if they need a game magic numbers one, win in your in. Zach rank, he's getting the ball Let's go to the National League. So the PHILLIES are a half game behind Miami. One four-game Wildcard. The brewers are one game back in the wild card also tied with the Philadelphia Phillies and the mets are three and a half games back. That is crazy like that is so nuts you know who's in it right now you got the giants or the seven seed you're the reds or the eighth seed. Nuts. Wild End of the year. Absolutely. Insane I don't know who's GonNa take it in the NFL I go indus I'm going to say that the the phillies are gonNA move in over the giants I don't think the giants are going to win like I don't think the giants are going to be into the post season I. Don't think they have enough even if they do. I. Just I just don't believe in them I don't I want. Evan. Longoria in but you know I can't really trust the giants. This year can't do it. Sorry. What can I say? I'm completely biased sometimes and I'm just going to ride with it. So. Let's pretend that the phillies let's all put the. Phillies as the eighth seed, move the reds to the seventh. We're just going to ride the we're just GONNA ride the opening series out like that. So in which case, we would have the dodgers versus the phillies. Now. That bodes. For an interesting series. Because the dodgers pitching. Isn't spectacular. And The Philadelphia offense. Is. Very good. Like I really do like watching Philadelphia's offense I don't. I try not to admit it. But their offense offenses amazing their bullpen is a little bit Shakey. Their starting rotation is very hit or miss. So the dodgers can really capitalize on that and do a lot of damage but. Could potentially lead to an upset I feel especially if Bryce Harper's out here going one hundred, ten percent. Alec. Bomb out here raking you got Reese hoskins doing his thing launching missiles you got jt real Mutoko who's the number one free agent on the market this next season he's buying a brand new contract. He is going to be going above and beyond like there's so much boomer bus like Didi. Gregorius has been striking out on his career low rate. He's been doing incredible this year like there's so many things. Going, right for the Phillies I feel like there could especially in a three game series. We could see a one eight upset if the phillies go to the postseason as the eighth seed moving on, we'll go to the braves and the reds. If the braves play the reds. In the first round of the postseason. The reds will win that series. They will hundred percent. Lewis Castio introver- Bauer. Versus. Injured Max freed and Ian Anderson. Sorry. It's a two Oh sweep and we're out. That's just how it's GonNa go. That's what I'm gearing for, and I'm just accepting it now like there's no need to fight back on it just accepted it is what it is. Braves fans I'm with you. I can't wait for another. You know six months of pure sadness watching everybody else have fun besides us, but it is what it is. What can we really do happens all the time. Moving on, we have the cubs, the Marlins I feel like this one favors. It's the most lopsided I feel like the cubs win a hundred times out of one hundred against the Mar- The marlins in this series like get the marlins are kind of spunky. They're you know doing way better than anybody ever thought they would be but. You know the cubs they just have the more experience. They have the more fight they just better team. So I feel like they would move on and then lastly let's go to the padres and the cardinals. Now, this is going to be a very interesting series I don't. Think that it's going to go three games I. think that The padres are gonNA. Come in and just You know kind of do their thing as they always do they're gonNA come in they're gonNA rake They're going to do great things against that pitching staff of the Saint Louis. Cardinals, and their pitching staff is going to take advantage of the cardinals are doing, which is absolutely nothing offensively. So. We'll see. I mean I guess we'll see how it goes but. Yeah the. The. PADRES HAVE TO MVP candidates. They have the rookie of the year in their. Starting like in their starting lineup. Mitch Moreland is Great Eric Hosmer is great like. They're just there's too deep of a team i. don't see that going very well Moving on to. The American League. So we have the raise in the Blue Jays. As, much as I do like the Blue Jays and how much fun I had watching them this year. No chance to beat the raise I got the raise moving, pass them for and easy Now. This is interesting. It's not the most interesting, but it's interesting. The. As in Cleveland. You GET BIEBER You get probably Caracazo. Verses. You know Sean Mnaya. I would say shamanee maybe aren't even and probably Chris Bassett. For the Oakland, A.'s. That's one hell of a pitching series right there off those two games alone. That's GONNA. Be One amazing series. I feel like the American league's jam packed with great. This is just Such a great playoffs. Because, you can't even guarantee that one team's GonNa. Win Like there's normally a series like the dodgers versus the braves a couple years ago. It's like, yeah the dodgers are GONNA come in they're going to ransack them and then they're going to leave and that's exactly what happened this one I don't even see that I don't see any of these happening. You got the twins in the Astros feel like the twins are GonNa win that's just astros pitching staff is bad. But You. Know besides that like what? What is there the white sox the Yankees Who Wins that? Who Wins that? Series. A lot of people are going to. Yankees but the Yankees were so bad. To, what three weeks ago and then they came out and they were so bad in the now they're so hot and they're one of the hottest teams in the League you know you got the Chicago White Sox who Were riding the highs the highs and now they're kind of tailing down. But who says that they can't be sparked right back up you have some major swagger in Luke void Glamour Torres those guys versus incredible swagger of Tim, Anderson Louis Robert de la man is. Offense, offense the pitching staff is just who's GonNa Pitch Better. Is Dallas GonNa come back and do his thing like there's so many marks that need to be answered. I cannot wait to watch it. It is to be an incredible series and speaking of what you need to watch going to be taking my final break and we'll close the show. The right way what to watch four will be right back after these messages. Want to know the latest and soccer that listen to the golden state media concept soccer podcast from M.. L. S. is the world world's the Premier Li. We've got you covered a latest update hottest matches news on the League's top players. It's the golden state media concept's soccer podcast. Talk. Listen now. South. Thank you for sticking around so As normally happens. We got some incredible pitching imagine coming up this weekend and it is looking incredible. So I have Friday night and Saturday night up. Starting, off Friday. We Have Jack Polarity on the mound. I is the Milwaukee brewers. Big Series right here we're still have a chance to make the postseason. Jack Flirt he's going to try and put a stop to that. What more could you really want? Moving on after that. You Rick Poor. Sell. Overseas Max Scherzer Yum Max Sherzer on the mound last started the season closing out the series or the season strong. I mean, what more could you want? Just kind of put in a little bit an exclamation point on the crazy year that was twenty twenty and you know have some some sort of momentum for Washington nationals rolling into the the off season and the You know get ready for Spring Training Let's see we got. Taiwan Walker on the mound for the. Playoff bound Toronto Blue Jays. Crazy to say you Taiwan Walker throwing against Hor Hey Lopez. The Baltimore Orioles. Just you know. I mainly, just Taiwan Walker. Come on So you got, let's see Antonio sends a tele. Taylor Clark. That's a pretty decent pitching matchup right there you got Vincent Alaska's versus Charlie. Morton. I Gate Geat Time Charlie Morton Curve Ball, and I don't think that's ever going to change. Anytime I try watch the Tampa Bay rays play. It is pretty much just time Glasgow and Morton throws. Just because I wanNA see Glasnost slider. Morris Curve. Ball. And I just want to sit back in a chair being dumb fat and happy. Watching, these games. Just seeing the rotation of the ball and just how stupid people look trying to actually hit that thing Moving on Cindy alcon Kantar versus J. Hap- Sandy Alcantara who is going to be a great pitcher give him a couple of years. Maybe next year I would say could be his big leap up there with six. Sanchez. yet Jay HAPP who looking to build some momentum going into the postseason especially, if he has to play against that treacherous, that's right. People use the word treacherous you know white sox lineup like. It's he. He needs a good start here and he really needs to get some momentum and build on that momentum. Speaking of building momentum. Boston verses Atlanta Cris, Mazza Verses Cow Right Kyle right and needs needs a good start so bad. Like so so so bad he needs a good start and if he can you know get A. Pretty. Decent one just you know snowball effect into the postseason. It will be a major relief for brave sands moving forward Let's see we got. Cookie RASCO versus Mitch Keller and that's going to be a great one Chris Paddock versus Tyler Anderson. Moravia. KRISTA guy anyways but toddler understanding no says I'm pretty good. Pretty good outings this year you got the. You got the Chicago does it? Man It's not the subway series. I don't keep every time. They play the series always like, Oh, they have this series but I never remember actually what it is but nor cyber southside Chicago you get Yu Darvish versus Dylan cease that's GonNa be one hell of a match up Spencer Turnbull versus Brad Keller a pretty good pitching matchup right there you Tyler Mall Mall Molly Verse Jose Barrios I geeked every time I see a Jose Barrios to to seamer. It's just how life goes You know he's he's. He's insane to watch I really. Hope the he can. You know settle down it'd be more than just a five inning pitcher Let's see. You Got Andrew Heaney versus Clayton Kershaw. We said that earlier you got your say Kukuchi versus Chris Bassett. I love watching. Kukuchi, I think he's I. Think he's a lot better than what the stats have to say Yeah. In Chris Bassett Chris Bassett is an insanely good pitcher. I love watching Chris Bassett throat I can't wait till my white son or my Oakland hood he gets in We have another Colorado Arizona game to close out the night Zach Gallon is going to be on the mound for the year is on a diamondbacks, and then for San Diego you've got. you got Donaldson Donaldson, Dino Son. Donelson lament. I man I really need to get his name, right? I don't think I ever will, but I'm trying. But yeah, you have a limit on the latter half of the double header with the With the San Francisco giants and moving on to Saturday. Just as many pitchers or throwing like it seems like we just get blessed every weekend with tremendous pitching matchups Trevor Rogers versus Debbie Garcia to start the day. The LAZARDO versus Sheffield. To Graham Saint Annabel Sanchez. John Means has been pretty decent. This year Matt shoemakers coming back anyway for the postseason. Your Matthew Boyd of the Detroit Tigers Lance mccullers, cow Gibson. Brandon Woodruff. WAINWRIGHT. Zack Wheeler Ryan Yarbrough. John Lester, Dane dunning Johm Musk Grove Aaron. Savall. Louise's. Castio. Michael Pineda. Mike Minor Herman Marquez Madison Bumgarner Dylan Bundy Johnny Cueto. Like what what more could we want? That is a day full of insanely good pitchers. You got you know Cincinnati Verses Minnesota Cincinnati is hanging on for dear life to the you know last spot in the playoffs. And they gotTA play against the Minnesota twins who are still trying to clinch the Al Central Division you know it'd be the number two seed in the postseason doing everything they can to hold off the Chicago White Sox so they don't want to play the Yankees. What. More could you WanNa that you have so many you have three games on Fox to ground versus Sanchez you got a woodruff and Ueno and you have Zack Wheeler versus Ryan Yarbrough. Great pitching matchups there. It doesn't look like we have any double headers to close out the year My favorite pitching matchup surprisingly is actually Hayes. LAZARDO versus justice. Sheffield. That's GONNA. Be One insane game. especially if they're able to you know if the Seattle Mariners able to fight back and if it's in a year, you know you win you're in type situation that would be absolutely nuts. You know you got a new Guy Who Oscar why? When Noah? You know for the Atlanta braves he's facing off against Tanner Hook. I'm going to be watching that just 'cause I've never heard of this guy. I'm going to click on this guy. So I've actually never heard of him is he is he new guy? Oh, it looks he's an opener. Yeah he's game started. I've actually never heard of this guy before, but it looks like they're gonNA do the opener. Yeah because he's only throwing what two innings, three innings, warnings, three innings. Yeah. So He's an opener. Okay. That makes a lot more sense of like who the heck is this guy I've never heard of before but yeah, you have him thrown for the braves. Finishing up their. Seasoning Boston. Great season you guys please just. For everything just do better Oh we actually am noticing. Seattle and Oakland. They do have a double header on sent Sunday Sweet Hell Ya. More baseball Let's see. You got. Dylan Bundy Tony Gone Sullen not a bad match up there Let's see. Keep going. Keep going John Lester Dane dunning that's going to be a great game. I. Wonder How many homes are GONNA hit off John Lester probably I would say if I put the over under a four and a half, I might actually take the over I. Think five is probably going to be what they get Let's see. I do like watching Matthew Boyd, I think I'M GONNA, turn I. Think I'm definitely going to be playing the the Detroit Tigers and the Kansas City royals this weekend. All right. Everybody that is going to be our show.

Mason and Ireland HR 3: Don't Need Another

"Yep You got any grudges John. I don't think so. I think I'm Greg Free Right now but I'm not you're better at that than I am of whole interest on how you want to look at So the now. The dodgers have officially announced in the Red Sox have commented on the mookie Betts. That's trade finally. It was in limbo there for a few days after we thought we had Mukhi. Now it is official and the trade has been retooled so in in. What's her name the prospect that educator throws one hundred miles an hour? Is Dr Greta Raw. Yeah so why not yeah kidneys twenty years old. He throws one hundred miles an hour. So the way that deal goes now is that the dodgers get Mukhi Bats and David Price and browse Dr Grabher all from the twins organization The Red Sox skit jeeter downs Obviously Alex for Dugo and I can never remember. The third prospect of his. Last name is Wong. He's Hunter Wong movie. The eighth best prospect. Okay so A minor prospect and the twins. Get Kenta Maeda. That's the way that deal finally settled instead of bras. Dr Grads Paul. Who's represented by Scott? Boris going to the Red Sox he comes to the dodgers instead and the dodgers through extra prospects and to make the deal work for Boston and and Scott says the narrative that grabher all is not healthy is false. Yes says that he threw one hundred miles an hour at the end of this season. Yeah and And it should be fine now. The other part of that deal is is off the deal that would've sent a jock. Peterson and Ross. stripling to the angels for prospects. That deal is off. I don't get this part is already Marino is being a hard ass and he got all ticked off that the The trade was in limbo for a few days there. To to me that was a great trade for the angels it was stripling Peterson to the angels. For prospects and Arty Marino has put the has has killed that deal. Matter of fact if the if the angels could revive it they should they shut because it would be good. I mean Peterson with slide right into their starting lineup. They need pitching stripling. would be good and I. I don't know if Peterson or stripling will start every day for the dodgers matter of fact. It's highly unlikely that that Peterson. He might put tune with politics and left with pollock and left aft- stripling probably won't crack the starting rotation he could remember. They used twelve different starting pitchers last year. So chances are stripling would start. But what I'm saying in Anaheim time lost guys with both slide right in play. Every day I think stripling would be in the rotation day one And and so now one thing. We haven't talked a lot about is I don't know how How Freeman pulled this off? David Price is owned ninety six million dollars remaining as country. Yeah he got the Red Sox Alexa pay half of it. Yeah so that the red sox pay forty eight million. The dodgers pay the other half the other forty eight million and they get David price price a guy that that had injury problems last year but think about it. He's coming into a new league. Yup He's GonNa face new hitters. Always had success in dodger. Stadium had multiple full appearances there. Right including the clincher. In the two thousand eighteen world series Sandra Freedman obviously knows him from their days together in Tampa Bay. I think David Price could could get what I'm hoping for is kind of like what happened with Justin verlander. When he went from the Tigers to the Astros I mean it wasn't a League switch Joan? Hold your breath on that. But he's not going to Justin. Verlander was terrible. Yeah into in Detroit. His last year he had number similar to prices rice. So you know hopefully you can get reborn. Pitching in is now used to Mitch in a dome in Tampa but this is his first time pitching for in a warm weather city in pitchers park. Yeah the other team went to Detroit. -TROIT's and he went to Boston right so hopefully that'll all help. But I'm I'm the dodgers especially if they don't trade Peterson and stripling. This is the I know. They've won seven straight division. Titles this is the best team they've had since I've lived here. I mean they're just loaded top to bottom and you know you figure it's going to be bets leading off Monte or Seger batting second whatever they WanNa do their journal third bellinger hit forth It's it's right left right left all haven't Gavin locks and AJ pollock going to hitting in the back end of the order. Will Smith will probably hit eighth. You know it's like there's no easy outs in that lineup. No and I really think that That Gavin locks is going to be a star. I think Gavin seven locks is going to be unbelievable for them He. He's still qualifies for Rookie. He does I just look that up the other day one. Yeah he is. He is going to be an absolute star darn he potentially. I mean you want this year with that with a lineup that loaded but he he potentially could be one like hit in one of your top three spots hit for second or third one day so that you know. They've got a great mix and I mentioned this earlier in the show. Only two of the starting eight everyday players are thirty or older young pollock and by the way Peterson when he plays his just Jack me of just turned thirty. Look that up Greg. I I think maybe twenty nine and the other one is Justin Turner owner. Everybody Acts Twenty seven okay so so when jock plays the only player over the age of thirty will be JT. Yeah we'll be. Justin Turner Will Smith Max Muncie. Auntie Gavin Locks Cory. Seager cody bellinger. MOOKIE BETTS ALL under the age of thirty so they are positioned to make big run here if they could do it and you put together a rotation tation of Bueller kershaw price And then it sort of mix and match could be a why most people think Julio Arrhenius this is going to be in that rotation and then for that fifth spot. You've got Dustin may Tony Gosselin Jimmy Nelson They redid it. They've got Alex would Alexander. They want to be a starter again. Mitchell white from their farm system. They've got multiple arms they can use in that fifth spot in the rotation right something or nothing I could say they go to would okay right and they they use him something or nothing that it would be bueller. WHO's right handed? Then kershaw lefty price price. Lefty aureus lefty wood lefty. This is four out of five. This is where they've been. Though this is what's been going. It's nothing no. It's it's it's nothing. Augustine may lefty no dismays right hand. Oh I'm sorry right in. Yeah no this. This is where they were last. Richhill was was the guy that That they don't don't have in the rotation anymore lefty So they've they've had a very lefty heavy rotation now for a few years. I don't think it's a big deal. Most I teams the reason That that I bring it up is most teams have more right handed hitters than left most teams right. The dodgers are going to be pretty balanced as a matter of fact the dodgers think about it. They're going to have bets. Turner pollick are the righties. Will Smith's righty. Also so but the other four. They're they're gonNA four lefties pretty much close you know bellinger Muncie locks. Yep Up and who am I leaving. Out Bellenger Muncie Luxembourger right Sierra left handed hitters. Yep so they they've. The dodgers are pretty balanced in that regard. Yeah now the other the story that kind of happened over the weekend but would you. I think you're more disappointed by disappointed by this. I was all excited because genie boss and Darren Collison. Were cited at Lakers game last week At Staples Center it was the day the trade deadline. It was Thursday and some Laker fans. And I I never expected acted them to make a deal but some Laker fans were disappointed that they didn't make any trade on trade deadline day. I would argue that. They never really had the pieces to make a clear trade. Ed Kouzmin doesn't make enough. They would have had to stack contracts. It would have been very difficult But I was all excited because there is Darren Collison the game Thursday night He is he's a really really solid player. He is a He can He is a play creator. He's a really good shooter. He's a very good defender And I really had my hopes set on him being laker instead yesterday. I think it was. He announced announced That he will not be returning to League. He retired after last year Here's why I think I don't think this is as big of a deal as you do. What we're trying to do is get somebody who can play when Lebron's not on the court when Lebron's on the court the Lakers are an elite? NBA team. That have the best record running this offense. Yes when Lebron goes out right now Lebron goes out for about fourteen minutes a game yet. That's when the Lakers really struggled struggled to create. Open shots the stroke they struggle with offensive efficiency. That's where you would propose collison would help yes But having said that what's going to determine the title and can we be honest about something. This is all about the title horse. The Lakers and the clippers may fit may stay where they are the Lakers right now. In the one the clippers in three Denver passed him over the weekend. But no LAKER CLIPPER FAN IS GONNA freak out. If those switch the Lakers finished second through you and I picked Lakers clippers finished third and fourth this year. Yes it's all about the postseason. Yeah this the success or failure of this Lakers team will be determined by how far they go in the playoffs when the playoffs start when they they they start playing games. That are longer when I mean longer. The commercials are longer they off times are longer. There's no back to backs in the playoffs. You never play two nights in a row when those start Lebron's minutes we're GONNA go up. Sore Anthony Davis Lebron averages thirty four and change right now in terms of minutes in the playoffs he'll average thirty eight to forty. Yep so so. We'll Anthony Davis so we've we've minimize that window where we need a guy to help with the offense to about a ten minute window now. I found this interesting. There are some guys on the Lakers. Right now who probably don't play enough minutes now. If you were going to bring in Collison now now the the best example of this is I'm gonNA I didn't. I didn't even know if I've shared this with with you. Okay so if you look at net rating that's how a player affects games. Offensively and defensively here is the fourth quarter net net ratings for all players who played more than six minutes. So you know all players that actually play yes okay the number one best fourth quarter player in the NBA NBA. You'd probably get one guess Lebron it's coli. Oh it's cool. Yeah great in the fourth quarter. He he scores most of his points. Lebron normally you're talking about league wide not just yet okay. So net rating league-wide. Okay number two is Danilo Gallinari. No you know. Let's got traded to WHO Miami this past week number. Three is Jason Tatum. A number star yet. Number four is Chris Paul all-star Number Five Live is Kemba Walker number. Six is Shay Guild. Gis Alexander almost an all-star Yup okay number seven with a net rating of fourteen point seven. Now everybody I've mentioned is either been an all star or GonNa be an all-star Kawai Gala Nari. Tatum Chris Paul Kemba Shakeel. Just Alexander number seven in net rating in the fourth quarter. Is Alex Karusa. Really Yeah and and and by the way Yana Genesis taste on what sample size Well however many minutes it's this is net highest net ratings in the fourth quarter among players with more than six minutes played in fourth quarters. Okay so so Caruso is a guy you want on the court in the fourth quarter right In so I'd like to see his minutes. Tick up You Know Lebron got to be out there court when this isn't criticize. I'm worried I'm talking about the postseason. Yep Okay so you want those guys out there there. You need Danny Green out right. Because Danny Green Hits bigshots Windows Fan Avery Bradley Spin excellently. And if not Javale McGee and door the White Howard guy has been very good so there's your five that you need in the fourth quarter right. There Caruso should be out there in the fourth quarter. He's east top ten then in net rating. So if you don't I I'm not gonNA tell you I didn't wish they got collison. If he would have come. I would have been excited. I cover them in. College is Great. But acce- Caruso be out there. I want Danny Green out there. Obviously the brandon a deer out there. And then am I crazy to say Dwight Howard Zeman great enjoyed heart's been fantastic. I love that energy. He brings to the floor. So there's a five and four Gordon. I think you're going to be fine. I WANNA turn anybody WHO's playing. Well you'd you'd WANNA put coups out there too. It depends how he's plan. I want to turn to punch He's not a shorttimer like Greg is going to stay with. Michael are steam or at opera. Senior associate producer Your idea first of all how how upsetting is it. The Collison isn't coming very very upsetting. They the Lakers really need another ball handler in a court. When Lebron is the bronze handling the ball too much in my opinion he needs to become a score when eh it becomes a score and that's one of the most dangerous? Yeah this is. This is funches main theme when we have our meetings every day he thinks there should be another ball handwriting on the floor so that Lebron can focus on scorn. I hate the expression scoring the basketball score. What else do you score? But it's not you're not wrong. I mean the other United Golden State. Lebron basically closed the game in one at form. But I think you'll see in the playoffs. It's all running through Lebron in the if you look twenty sixteen the year the cavs knocked off the seventy three win warriors team to win the title. Yep you'll get the postseason numbers at your. That was pretty much Lebron on in Cairo. Just going nuts right you know. They Kevin Love helped a little. Jeff Smith helped a little delving. Dove had some big plays but the role players were that were role players. It was Lebron and Kyrie elevating the team to a tidal. We're going to go as far as Lebron and aid. Take what you the need for. The rest of those guys is your necessarily name to win games. Just don't lose them. And I think the Lakers have the personnel to do that I coming up next for you to do we have Ben Lyons is GONNA join us. He was the Post Game Post. Game host. Why not here's the Post game host for the Oscars last night right along with Stephen a Smith So we'll We'll talk to him. He was at the big awards. We got that coming up for you.

He's he's good at interviewing celebrities as anybody. I've ever seen which is a really hard job.

And the the Oscars Post Post game show with Stephen. A Smith and Ben Joins US now. Hey Buddy what's going on. What's up guys? It's sorry I couldn't get down there in person So little after traffic.

Okay so let's let's get right into this show in general Ben no host again n a gentleman with a big number to open it A lot of quirks lot. They tried a lot of different things well received not well received. What was this was the general on how the show went? Start to finish. Glad you mentioned you now monet from my money. That was one of the great opening numbers to go from Mr Rogers. There's two that wild song and dance that incorporated all the characters from all the different fields. I think she just announced to the world. I'm a superstar notice if you haven't already that was amazing but without a hosted allows talent the just that. So you have Steve Martin and Saturday alive royalty Chris. Rock and Kristen Wig and Maya route often often will ferrell. Excelling I think in the comedic moments delattre music. I don't know what was the blue. And then you know I. I love that airline Antonio. Yeah that's that's my that's my song and I didn't get what when people say to you. Why did that? Why was that part of the Oscars? What do you say Ed? I have no idea. It was random. Good Yeah Love Love. Love Senior PA represented in any form at the Oscars. But I I don't get that. Yeah I mean it's It's a night where the the love is spread around town going to the days of one movie. Sweeping yes parasite was talk of last night. Right but Joe Joe Rabid one for apted and you saw costume for little women and you get one for bombshell and makeup and the joker gets Joaquin and sound and as as a composer and then you see you know. Nineteen seventeen with some technical so everybody around town gets to eat and all boats rise and at the end of the day. I'm still convinced guys. This is is the best way to get a Korean film into three thousand screens across America. I in a real way. I don't know another way to do that. Other than the hype. Hoopla of the okay so Some John earlier described parasite. I did my my best describe parasite Ben in intimate classes story story of a two families that are forever intertwined by the actions that they each take and it's about how we interact with those who have have more than US those who have less than us about family. It's about the human condition aspiration and then it goes in places that I can't even begin right. Watch Chris So ben who elevator pitch. Steve knows it was actually re weighing in mind and very similar Zinger Yours is better. Okay so ben even as rich people film into four piece so Oh Steven A.. Did see parasite I saw Paris. I gotta be honest with you. I don't think my money in the hollow it takes place in question. You got your Brad Pitt. You got the biggest and best in the game. It's gotTa be Coin Tarintino all day every day that you you got a whole bit limiting their man good. Bend the the award that you put a won't use the word snubbed. But what award you disagree with the most. Would you reverse if if you could. There's a trend on when actors or Actresses Win Award at the screen actors guild awards for playing a real life person. They go on to win win at the Academy Awards. I think. Charlie's for Monster Jamie Foxx for Ray I think of the Amine Forest Whittaker Capote Philip Seymour Hoffman. The list goes on. Sean Penn and milk Sandra Bullock. I mean I can name you a bunch. Judy Garland was a real life person. Of course Renee Zellweger. I don't think deserve the Oscar. I would have gone with. Charlene's is making Kelly another real life person. I thought that performance was incredible by the Judy. Garland things didn't work. I totally disagree with. Yeah I thought she was. I know you guys were big fans at Apple Format as Stephen your his favorite performance of the year. But I think Judy Garland. I think Stephen What is even. After this whole experience I thought he was actually pretty good. There is nothing quite so entertaining. Last night I flip flip okay after curb your enthusiasm watching Stephen a sip with the academy award winning composer of the score for the joker. Okay so ben let me let me back you up with a little little Fire on your on your Zellweger thing. I'm a big fan of the ringer. Bill Simmons website. And Sean Fantasy who. Who does a Lotta podcasts? There tweeted this last night. He said I mean this with no malice. Why did Renee Zellweger win? Every single word this season bad movie little seen gene already has an Oscar. Her speeches are strange. The movie says nothing about the world today. I still have not heard a compelling reason and and that's kind of where you're going right. I'm right with the most in in in and out Burger last night with my buddy Josh Horowitz Forbid TV news. And we're looking yourself and we were like why. Why did she win everything? All a year was just like understood from September on it was just understood. Everybody agreed. She's GonNa get the Oscar. It was same with Brad Pitt. It was the same with Joaquin Phoenix Knicks. It was the same with Laura dern that they all it was an understanding that they were all four GonNa win. There was no no no surprise at all with those four. Hey Hey ben let me ask you let me ask you. This doesn't make me the most popular guy. Probably but I don't need to know what Brad Pitt thought thought the impeachment hearings and I don't need to know what that Joaquin Phoenix is a Vegan. And he's going to try to convince me to also be one that's not. That's not what I'm looking not looking for My political and social advice from actors on the awards awards. I think that's for everyone to have their own relationship with. That's not what you're looking for. But they're looking to take take advantage of having a platform in an opportunity to express something that they're passionate about and knowing that life is fleeting moments or fleeting raptors had had a career of love the highest level never had that moment before he might never have it again and if that's important for him then that's his process totally respecting that you. I don't WanNa hear that. That doesn't mean he needs to cowtail to your desire for how to be innocent. People are going to do what they want. I just I'm never gonNA take advice from from an actor who's just won an academy award even someone who is dedicated. A life of to to their to their passion beyond more than an athlete right more than an active man. Like why do you like walking. Phoenix can only performing entertain you. He can't inspire you to think differently about issues that he's passionate about not when and I'm watching the show for just now when I'm watching the show for watching the NBA four. We'll only Bronco basketball. Shot up dribble. We don't want that we want actors. That's actually it's a fair argument. I just think it alienates a big chunk of the country when we turn it on and hear political speeches. Okay so where were you living. Very polarizing time. Look at those guys who take advantage of a moment for something they're into. That's that's on that I've been last thing you unlike you and Mason. I've seen virtually nothing. I saw bombshell and I saw once upon a time in Hollywood. I'm of all the movies that were honored last night. Assume I haven't seen any of the other ones and you could only pick the one. Where are you sending me for you? John Ireland knowing you. I think you had a mason will agree. I think you'll love. Every frame of nineteen seventeen movie will suck you into into This story into World War One in a way that will stay with you. The wreck site can read a piece of filmmaking and I'm shocked Mason that Mendes in and wind direction I I thought bond was a lock for for original screenplay which is kind of the cool kids at war now you know talented talented writers who have won over the the last couple of years but man what a what a what a performance in direction from Sam Mendes in nineteen. I'm also surprised that Nineteen seventeen didn't win win best picture. I like Parasite a lot but I. I didn't think it was best picture guys. One quick moment last night from the Oscars See Spike Lee afterwards again in the Kobe. Chuck Rock and the Kobe toxin and the Kobe shoes is amazing. First thing he comes up to me at the ostrich crazy allowed. Has Your father deal with movie bats. It's gone yeah you know we had your Dad Your Dad on the other day. I don't know if you heard it. But he wasn't like he wasn't in heartbroken over it he had kind of moved on the. He's gone through a soul searching journey to get to a place where he's now convinced himself. Spin be missing. mookie Betts. Let's come June and July and hopefully I can tell you that much great. Thanks for doing this man. You guys are the best in John. I appreciate your shout man.

Mace Patrick Martin says he was at best buy in McDonough Georgia south of Atlanta looking to buy a laptop on on Wednesday when in spotted. Shaquille O'Neal Martin offered his sympathies to the NBA Legend for the recent death of Kobe. Bryant and for O'Neill sister Aisha Harrison Persson who died in October after a battle with cancer. Moved by the gesture shack told Martin. The laptop was on him. Martin Martin wrote in a facebook post. That O'Neill told them to quote. Get the nicest one in here and I'll pay for it End quote that sort sort of random act of kindness is nothing new for shack. He purchased musical equipment for a fan in a guitar center shoes for a teenager with size eighteen feet and a house house for a twelve year old paralyzed in a shooting. When he played for the Lakers he's shack a clause where he would load up eighteen wheeler with toys? And just drop my the stuff like this all the time. But he's not the only one first thing that pops into your head. What's the best random act of kindness you've ever heard of that you've ever heard of over Herta while you're thinking about two that I thought you would like there's a defensive end by the name of Derek? Nadi he plays. He's a tackle. Actually he plays for the chiefs. Yup and after the chiefs won the Super Bowl. He did your somebody who I know believes in petted option. I'm from shelter so Nadi decided that he had been to a shelter in Kansas City and found out that if you want to adopt any of the pets and their the dogs the cats anybody on that you had to pay an adoption fee and sometimes it could get as high fifty or sixty bucks and a lot of families didn't have the money so naughty said anybody that adopts a dog At the Casey pet project get I'm paying adoption fees for all of them no matter how many there are are the shelter announced the news on social media Sunday after the chiefs came back and won it and he says that he stuff like that all the time for them. So I if you went in the night to adopt a pet you can do it the other one that I loved involved a football player in this from years ago.

Guy Bought a couch at a salvation store for the whole roof shot had for humanity store And found seventy thousand dollars buried in the cushions and instead of keeping the money he went back to the habitat for humanity store. They tracked whose couch it was and they gave the money back that is of course. That's random act of kindness by the way. I think I would do that. I wouldn't I debated this. I would take the money. You just keep it. I bought the couch right. It's Mike Couch yet but I get the cushions I get the money inside. I keep it of course appealing it. No I would. I would feel guilt.

Eh Dodger Game Yeah. I learned a lot that day we took. We went to the the scientology center where the refugees that had been involved in the Hurricane Katrina Katrina and we said okay. WE'RE GONNA run a bus and take a bunch of them to a dodger game and we were stunned by which probably about forty or fifty of them. Yup The dodgers were really nice about it and he gave us tickets on the top. Stop back and we we we take these kids to the game and almost to a kid. They said they had no interest in ever gone back. Yeah member they said we just you know. Our whole town's water we went. I mean their lives yet destroyed just won't findings find something else. Did that but yet but yet so hopefully I do that.

GimMe the Keanu Russell Wilson with nineties vibes which includes a meme of Edward scissorhands. Who the Russell Wilson think? He is with hair like that Russell so Wilson definitely could pass for a Telenovela villain And on and on and John you've worn your hair the exact same way since I was in high school in Nineteen ninety-three it has never and I mean never changed at all.

It looks different. It looks different. It's a little. I guess it's more. A stylish. People are starting to wear their hair long against doing that. I was thinking might get rid of the gentleman's cut where my hair long You could see I wish I could i. Yeah I have like a very I'm glad to have any hair might how you know how many of our friends our age have like no hair. It's weird so and Bergman you have all your hair to we have a good.

Here's what happened. She was on a plane. Go into Salt Lake City for Sundance when a female passenger caused a disturbance can. This passenger was chilling in the Lounge Orange and missed her boarding announcement. The plane had been fully boarded and the gate closed but this passenger was a frequent flyer and demanded handed to be led on the plane when the gate agents said No. She demanded that her bag be taken off the plane which I thought happened automatically. She said that her you know she already checked her luggage through the gates said no the planes on the tarmac and it's taken off so in an attempt to get her way. Yeah the passenger said. Well there's a bomb in my bag What the plane was immediately stopped of of course cleared of all passengers and the terminal was evacuated? The bomb squad investigated and there of course was never a bomb. She was just trying to get away. Wow what should the appropriate punishment be for this passenger. Who caused all this a huge fine a long jail sentence all of the above? Is it unreasonable double. If I were to suggest this person be put on a permanent. No fly list be never allowed to fly commercial again. What is is an appropriate punishment for this person? Well I don't know if you can put some. I don't know if it's you can put somebody on a permanent no fly but you can definitely send him to jail. Yes person should go to jail.

You can massive massive fine. If she can't pay you ve emmy. She doesn't have money. Then what's the point I wouldn't what is the actual penalty now. How about this maker Flying Coach for the rest of her life she sounds like a snooty the first class first class? Yeah no I think. I think somebody like that's got to go to jail now.

He's always going to be jealous. That yeah can't cannot work I guess he would say worth the shot. Yeah why not more fasttrack in two minutes Mason and Ireland seven. ESPN I wrote on with fasttrack. Ireland Stu you false time. Hi Mace over the weekend Michael Kidd Gilchrist and Marvin Williams were bought out by the Charlotte Hornets. Both of those guys were once number. Two who overall draft picks they never came close to becoming all stars in two thousand twelve when they took Kidd Gilchrist. They took him over Bradley. Beal Damian Gene Lillard Andre Drummond while draymond green and Chris Middleton Williams was taken in two thousand five before future. All Stars. Chris Paul Darren Williams Danny Granger and David Lee. It seems to me that if you get the second overall pick it's pretty hard descru- up but it happens. All the Thai Ashim the beat Darko Milicic and Straw mile swift or all number two overall picks. Why is this so hard for teams to get right? I think scouting in all sports is an unbelievably inexact science. When you drive almost always get the number one pick right? The number two pick is the one they don't get well because generally speaking there probably is one talent. This year may not be that case. Apparently early not a clear number one this year well. They've screwed that up before two. They you know they took Anthony Bennett. My Goal Candy Scouting the most inexact science I mean look at NBA NBA players. Look at where they're taking the turn out to be gigantic MRS and where they're taken late in the in the draft where they turn out to be big stars look at the NFL them. They draft a quarterback who knows how Brandon mortar back. sixth-round seven round where you draft Tim. Couch number one turns into a bus. Same thing in the the In in Major League Baseball you know Mike. Piazza was laid whatever seventy first round. Yeah so I mean it's just a really really inexact science and that's why guys like for example Jerry. West have been unbelievably smart. I mean crazy went at number. Well you know what I fourteen Circus's he's got a golden gut and by the right after him in that draft Steve. Nash Kobe Thirteen Nash working. But that's why I actually think Darryl Maurice got it right Daryl. Morey hardly ever holds onto his draft picks. He trades them every year. He trades them years into the future. And if you look at teams that have won the title title. Recently with the exception of the warriors who drafted Stephan Clay. But you look at Lebron and Bosh in Miami Amy were free agents collide. Leonard came to San Antonio and a trade Kobe in a trade shack in a free agent. Sign Right. Most champions are built other then through the draft. So I think there is a a smartness to trading away your draft picks if you can get good players I think it is a mixed bag. I think it can be done either way off. Track all right Okay The Wall Street Journal reporter Friday that the Houston Astros was cheating scheme was created by the Astros. Front Office led by Head of baseball analytics. Baseball Operations Jeffrey Luneau. It started with a powerpoint presentation from an analytics intern turning twenty sixteen plan called project.

9/29/20 - The Mo Egger Show

"Oh. Guess what they're you news guess what they is stock go. Hi How you doing good afternoon I'm eager. This is ESPN fifteen thirty. Thank you for listening. I'm glad you're here. We are absolutely loaded one hour from now the voice of the reds Tony Thrall is going to be on this show. The two thousand twenty MLB postseason is underway. We have day baseball we have day baseball on over the air television. It's like the nineteen seventies again. Astro's in twins playing game. One of their three-game series the game is being played at target field with the reds ended their regular season they played to. the game is scoreless. Games number one or game number one good pitching that by the way. Zach drinking and Kenta. Maeda the American League rolling out there for series today little bit later on in fact, just about to get underway oakland hosting the white SOX and Toronto in Tampa Bay game won that game is being played in Florida I was going to say it's being played in Tampa Bay, but the rays don't play in. Tampa Bay they play in Saint Petersburg that is at five o'clock in the Yankees Indians. Hookup in Cleveland tonight. There's a lot happening. In Cleveland Tonight we have eight Wildcard Rounds Tomorrow Eight Games tomorrow game to in all of the American League series game one in each of the National League series starting with the Reds and braves tomorrow at noon game number one Trevor Bauer against Max freed will hear from Trevor in about a little bit less than thirty minutes him talking about his first reds postseason start. That and so much more secure later in the show and we'll talk baseball bedding. At a five twenty. We'll go to Atlanta Multiple Times today you'll hear from Joey, votto David Bell or learn more about the Atlanta braves with somebody who covers them. We start the shows we normally do though on Tuesdays with our Buddy Paul Dana junior whose primary beat is the bengals for the athletic dot. com. But he's also contributing to a reds coverage. including host of podcast W AARP in Cincinnati that he does with Cetron Rosecrans they will be podcast after every reds playoff game. I'll let you pick because obviously we had Sundays bengals tied talk about there's a lot of different bengals issues to discuss. But I gotta be honest with you. And we'll talk bengals. Kinda more into the reds today I will let you pick your here for a half hour which team do you WanNa talk about I? Give you a choice bengals aretz. Don't you always WANNA keep people around longer so we should pe- that we'll talk about the reds later since that's probably what people will be more excited here about as much as I love rehashing ties. Oh Man I. I know where to begin and Where we started a lot of conversations you're with me for three hours last Monday. We spent a lot of time on this topic then. We're GONNA spend a lot of time on this topic moving forward. It's it's the offensive line and and not that I not that I want to spend a lot of girgis attending stuff that we have beaten to death. Already, we're only three games in, but it's it's interesting I. I see people who say things like borough is GonNa fail in Cincinnati because they don't care about. An offensive line or they don't prioritize the offensive line, and so that's why borough ultimately is going to ask out and look he may that may happen one day. My guess is if the offensive line continues to be as bad as it's been one day he will, but it gets framed incorrectly and this is really sobering to me if they didn't care about the offensive line. To this point, you would go. Okay. Well, watching Joe Borough get his brains beaten in that will make them care. The troubling thing to me Paul is they actually do care and they have tried they've spent first round picks. They've made trades they've brought guys in from outside they've given guys, contract extensions. They really have tried to take this offensive line and turn it from what? It was in two thousand sixteen when it was not nearly as good as it was the year before and make better every single year and they have failed. So now fans have to put their in the same people who have failed to this point to get the offensive line to where it needs to be to make it better moving forward. That's the troubling part for me. Yeah I mean. You put it perfectly. That is the problem it's it's it's it's not a matter of unaware I mean anybody that's watching this team over the last however long is is aware the the issue is and this this goes along the same conversation that I heard last year that we talked about about the linebackers there was this idea that they really thought that guys they had who for the most part had proven to not be very good would get better an upgrade. And they felt like that was going to be the case and. The linebackers are got awful and they realized they got scrap that whole thing, and then this year there is. Really feel like the guys that we estimate last year are definitely going to get better and that's definitely GonNa make it and bet on that rather than looking you know to be more blue we'll call it aggressive or whatever you wanna call it believing you know. Is it belief in your eyes too much. It abilities overvaluing your own player something that this has been accused of doing quite a bit in on a number of different levels maybe, and maybe that's the case here. I I don't know what it is, but I do know that you're right and that is that. The real only thing is not that they won't address it because they will like. To think that this off season will start and they'll be like you know what running back like. Let's ship them all back out there again that that's not they will go and try to fix it. The question is. Will they do it correctly and not you know I don't I don't think we have. We have the answer to that. You know high draft pick it might be hard to mess up well, maybe. You know it's it's one thing if by the end of the season you said, okay, they need a right tackle or They're gonNA have to get better at left guard or here are the two positions that they can pinpoint the draft and free agency but they can add whoever they get to a pretty solid core of offensive linemen that had a productive two thousand twenty. Joan Williams is going to be given every chance to succeed. He's played three NFL game. So we're not. We're not going to dismiss the idea that he's not going to be as good as they thought he can be, but it almost feels like at the end of this season at the end of year one of Joe. Borough. They're going to be starting from scratch and and when you're starting from scratch takes. You forever to get to where you need to be, and so I'll have people say to me very dismissively what they'll fix it this off season no no no. They may try to start to fix it but it's going to be a long long time before this offensive line is as good as it needs to be for this team to reach its maximum potential for this quarterback to reach its maximum potential. And then you wonder if in the interim, what is that to do to Joe Borough physically and also what's that GonNa do to a mentally and what's that GonNa do to his relationship with his team Yeah, I think you can fix things faster. You know I think if you if you get a a real right tackle if you're drafting in the top five which. Let's be honest. That's in play. I mean, you're talking about a real guy that you plug in day one and can play either left or right tackle whatever you're trying to do. And you can get a real guard out there. I mean for decent dollar that would be an upgrade for you WANNA fishes and I. Feel really good that you might have fixed it. Jona. Williams, in the second full year, whatever it we we've got a thirteen or games as the season to play out whatever that looks like. I do think that you can plug those holes and really. So much of this has stemmed from one injury, which is concerning about the deaths. I, mean, who knew Xavier sue fellow injury wouldn't be the one the one that was set forth these these dominoes because if you go back the last two games while no one has been great. What happened the atrocities? That occurred at right guard between the combination of Fred. Johnson. Billy Price Have Changed Games and and I would argue certainly caused had a role in multiple situations situation. Give them the win yesterday I mean any number of times where Fletcher Cox just comes running right up into job rose face is a throw that would have been either a completion for something a whole. All of those things I mean you that spot if it's just adequate, they you know. They they would. They would win yesterday and. Not In anybody's been great again, I wouldn't say that. But I you know. It's not I don't think it's. As far off, it looks that way when it looks awful but I think when it looks good or decent it just takes one or two pieces I. think they I don't think it's some massive rebuilding project at this point as bad as it looks I know it's been a long couple of days for you but they actually played the game on Sunday yesterday was Monday they didn't play yesterday Paul Days are starting to run together for you but I i. It's been a long like I've been doing but doing. Got Going on. I completely, I completely understand I know I know this has become a cause celebre for me and you tweeted about it early in the game on. Sunday. But the second in ten runs thing. Look. So so like they're playing well, get a turnover sims makes a great interception. They've got the ball at midfield within three passes there at the thirteen yard line incompletion on first down, they call the second intend running play. It goes nowhere they had to settle for three. The game was lost right there. You had a chance to go up eight nothing good happens when you run it on second and long and yet this coach continues to do that this drives me nuts yeah. No I mean I went through in sort of documented leading up to the game I I talked with box on the pre game and that was that. Joe Mixon had more second and run decking long runs than anybody in football was averaging two point seven yards per carry on those when giving him the ball on first and ten he was averaging five point two yards per carry coming into the game. They were throwing the ball more on first and ten than anybody in football and having the least yards. Per Attempt on those on first down and then on second down throwing the ball where or amongst one of the better ones they they weren't doing the thing they do best lease and the thing they stay do least most you know what I mean they they they're doing everything the opposite coming into the game I will give him one piece of credit. One piece credit and that is. You know they only ran it on long three times out of fifteen, and that's better ratio than it has been I can excuse a few times doing it here there for honesty for key, you don't want to be in the same thing in in in certain situations all the time. At least they seem to be doing less than they were previously that said that might have been the wrong spot. To pick for another second long run, they teams teams are looking for it too much. It's not catching anybody by surprise, and it's still sets up for the most part a third, maybe a little more third manageable but man You're right at that point there was a chance to kind of put the game away a little bit in that way back they have to win this game on Sunday I mean this is. Like the must win card. I'm not talking about this for the purposes of contending for the postseason. The idea this season was win more games a substantial amount of games more than they did last year, and that might mean six you and I talked about hitting the over kind of being a loose goal for this team before the season began. Three and one after not winning their first three games that we're all very, very winnable especially, the first one and the one on Sunday, and then Jacksonville comes in your slight favorites. The Jaguars players aren't tanking the organization that feels like they are very competitive won their first game and then not so much a week three against a Miami I night football, which was a mess. You lose this one. You can go down the schedule and then try to figure out when their first win is going to be but but then you really. Do a couple of different things as a fan you you wonder. How long is this going to go before? They win a game and then in all within all that how much more difficult to Zach Taylor's job become day in and day out because guys are starting to wonder whether he's the guy guys are starting to not play. The issues that seem to arise when a team has its losses amount. Those become concerns. And then there's there's just at some point we're going to judge this guy by whether or not he wins or loses football. He's got to win this game on Sunday and this is a must win for Zach Taylor. Yeah on Sunday I wrote about you know the bengals sort of with that. Dates they still don't yet know how to win and and that's been the problem you know I mean. They're they're tied for the longest one score game losing streak in the history of the NFL hundred years like leather helmets forward pass. Fifteen in a row that they've lost you know Zach. Killer winless in eleven such games mean the law of averages says it you just luck into a few and until you prove you can do that it is on you as a coach. There may be lots of differ culprits, but they're all under you know under you that's all on you and your team. Needs to believe that you can do it and they need to believe that they can do it and it's been so long since this team has won a game, my making that one or two players they need to in big spots or those few details to put the game away that you wonder if they know how to do it. That was a bad eagles team playing poorly even for them. On on Sunday, is what it was and they still weren't able to put them away despite opportunity after opportunity I ended up eleven of them that we're basically opportunities that. You know do this one thing and you would have won the game. because. The Eagles just kept giving them chances and they couldn't capitalize on any of them over one point over one dry summer. One stuff it's it's all it takes in and and we've seen that goes back to the game against the chargers. It goes back to how many games last year. Where yeah sometimes our back door covering a one possession game if you will which so many games they had the opportunities over and over and over again and they've just been unable to make those plays and the you you have to have a sense of belief that you can do it or or will go the other way every single time and right now you know I don't know how I run in the locker rooms I can't tell you for certain. But I. Don't know how anybody could feel super confident in a close game right now, this team something going to figure out how to do it after you know fifteen in a row they have. Let. Let's talk about something more encouraging Paul Dana Junior with athletic athletic dot com get into the reds who open up the playoffs tomorrow when we come back Paul by the way was on twitter at Paul. Dana junior this is ESPN fifteen, Thirty Cincinnati sports station. twenty-five after three, this is ESPN fifteen thirty Mo Eggert Paul data gender from the athletic one more segment with him we. We did the bengals thing. Now let's talk some baseball reds braves tomorrow game one wildcard series. This is. Look I'm close to it you're close to it. I'm a reds fan. So I'm a little biased. I still think you look at these eight series that are starting today I think this is the most interesting one. There is pressure on this braves team to advance in the postseason first time almost decades they made it. Each of the last two years couldn't get out of the National League. Division series. There's the Joey votto factor I've written I. Think Joey votto needs a postseason moments. And then there's just the fact that you get any leat reds trio of starters against a great Atlanta offense. There's dudes up and down the order who had hellacious league good seasons. This has the making of a really good October baseball postseason matchup. Yeah and you get strength on strength. You get the reds pitching staff, the red starting pitching and really their bullpen, which is fantastically you get that You might be one of the best in baseball now going up against arguably the best lineup in baseball I mean with the way the braves have. So many guys that can rate in up to watch trevor. Bauer take that on in game. One is just it's fast. It's great eater. I. Mean. It's it's postseason baseball. It's all the pressure. It's your number one guy who has that added that attitude what you have to love it's why you have them. He has that special, give me the ball and don't take it from me attitude. About a big stage and you love that and they needed that and it's it's you're right I. Mean it's GonNa be fascinating for that fact that's One thing the reds have going for him I, do think that Atlanta has what's happened the last few years to them in the back of their mind they've been a good team and they failed in the post season and that's guys that are currently on this braves roster. So to think, there will be some of that in the back of their head is crazy. Of course, it will be partially a part of. Something that goes through their head on the other hand you have read simple guys do. which is finally going to be in their favor You know as except you guys brought in obviously that have had success in the postseason Trevor Bauer that has had success and been on good very good teams. In pitched well. and you you don't have the history of thinking about those things even though it's been since nineteen ninety, five, hundred guys care no lot that you about recent history. Recent history is this team feels great about it so and has built a cussedness. A metal that you can only get going through what they went through and bounced back and so the eleven and three in their last fourteen got to one five straight series, all those things, Dowsett history that they're going back on cause a stitch felt like playoff baseball for a while for them. So I think the mental aspect of it I think in a lot of ways does the red. I, you mentioned the name. To me what I'm glad. The reds have going for it is Trevor Bauer. I said on on Thursday last week after after the game against Milwaukee and when she goes eight strikes out, twelve gives up four hits on three days rest I said on Thursday. I however, however things go from that moment I will never forget that night. I will never forget that out that was and they scored some runs forum early but it to me that was an example of this dude just refusing to lose in a game they had to win. I think he would have won one one nothing and gone nine if he needed to. You know it's it's a chance to to really enter the Pantheon as silly as it sounds of recent Cincinnati sports greats if he can stick it to Atlanta game one set the tone and they can advance in the postseason boy. It's it's going to amplify the pressure to keep him next year. It's going to put him at a level that not many local athletes have have entered and just I just feel like this is his moment in granted it's pitching on the road without fans, and so it's it's a different type of environment but I, just I think of possibilities for a tone center for a guy who is going to have a plan of attack for this for this. Atlanta offense which does everything well, that to me is the x factor and granted he could only pitch tomorrow I would assume even though I'm sure he. Might say otherwise not going to see him again in the series even if it goes three but I just I like how this sets up and yes, it's great to have this great trio of pitchers they have if I've got Bauer setting the tone in game one of a three-game series I don't care who the opponent is and Max freed is really good and he's lefty which which makes you wonder about you know Ach Yaman vital and wicker, and some of these left handed hitters have Gimme the team that has Trevor Bauer, going for it. Yeah I would agree you know he's got he's got that big game. It was interesting about power the what he's done over the course of not just this whole season but of late. Is How much he he has gone to to validate all the moves are really going all the way back to when he was acquired. That they made when they gave up so much to sell them, we talked about how they were all in and selling out for this season so many ways and it felt like it was all going to go by the wayside and how many tough conversations we're going to be had. I'm telling different people inside the organization because of it if it went. So sideways, which was going, but this run that they've put together and. Cover Bauer has put the exclamation point on it and what he can't do on Wednesday that you feel about what he can do on Wednesday really for me has validated all those moves and and you know put sort of a stamp of approval on the organization they need. Now is what we've talked about forever. It's they they they need the run now and and that this is what they did everything for. This is the selling out for the future of the spending all the money you know all of that stuff was about having this. In this exact spot on that starts with him it starts with him and the fact that they got him to a level that isn't just level he was at prior but better than that it's almost icing on the cake and yeah, I think love how can you not love sending that guy out there week one for a confidence for team. Signed me up for that and. This. This is going to be I. I think it's GonNa be interesting to see how we frame this. I asked a question, a twitter question last week, which was you know for for you to consider the season success where do they have to go and the the don't to say overwhelming majority the majority. Look win a wildcard series I kind of have slightly higher standards because. I go back to what we said about this team pre pandemic pre-shutdown, which was in. Their built for the postseason. So that means to the National League Championship Series I. Still Think for me to feel really good about what team did this year that's got to win five games. To in this series and then obviously three in the national. League division series and play for the right to go to the world series and then for me to smashing success. On the on the other end of that, though is lose this series. I think for a lot of people these last two weeks I've been a blast. It's been a lot of fun. It's been refreshing to have meaningful baseball being played in September. These guys are really likeable but lose in the first round of a sixteen team playoff. I just I think those two weeks for a lot of people go out the window of this team can advance. cause. You look back at it and a far farther away when you're more removed and you'll say five hundred team went out in the first round. They would never even made it if plus expanded the right I mean I think you can do that and. You see the potential you know I. I'd a certain point. We've baseball. You're always just rolling the dice. You're always just take us want to have the best percent chance to win in the biggest spots I. do think the reds have done that I do think that there is. You know a lot to be encouraged by, but at a certain point, you set yourself up. Win these games and that's it does come back to that I I. Think I think I think that they have set themselves up as well as you possibly. Playing and the players they have in certain spots you know. Who knows I mean? It's baseball man I mean stuff. That team doesn't always win and they definitely always a three-game series. So you you may chalk up too bad luck or whatever, but You know you just feel good with the way they're playing right now. We'll be listening. We'll be reading I, appreciate it as always happy birthday to your daughter. That's why you're not here with me in studio today that is a valid excuse. So we'll see you next week dot com. Thanks you gotTa Paul Danner Jenner covers the bengals and the reds for the athletic it dot com follow him on twitter at Paul. Danner Junior. We are running late twenty five away from four o'clock. You'll hear from the starting pitcher for game one of the Wildcard series for the Reds Trevor Bauer next. Really glad you asked a couple of games happening right now in the American League Adam Angle with a home run for the Chicago White Sox. Who slated a seven seat talking about them last week maybe being the one. In the American League, they lead Oakland one nothing bottom of the second inning game card series. Meanwhile, the twins lead the Astros one nothing top of the fourth inning, but Houston is. Threatening with two on and two out meanwhile, reds and braves set to get underway tomorrow noon. Your. First Pitch Trevor Bauer gets the ball against Max, freed the ace of the red staff chatted with the baseball media and he was asked for his thoughts on a very imposing Atlanta lineup. Good. homers. Face him a couple of times before a lot of these guys. So have a little bit of history with them. Obviously, not this year. So things change Atlanta construction changes on that. A A deep dive yet on them by. We'll be doing that today tomorrow obviously. So Have more info later. Along those lines, you don't give up obviously much more than Solo. Home runs when you do give them up. Eight or nine were those if they hit a lot of home runs in general just that you don't put a lot of guys on basis can help you if you get a hold of one or two. That's that's the goal. Make them. Beat me don't be myself. So limit the blocks, any pitches, possibles like limit the heads. The let's traffic yellen bases that are off usually are so. That's that's. been the goal for me really all year I've tried to cut my walkway down because that's a really easy way to limit run scored at something that's definitely helped. driver. Do you relish the stage of being the guy? This team goes to in Game One of a playoff series. I relish. The big game. Whenever it happens We've had a lot of big games two weeks. Enjoy that extra Adrenalin or pressure or however you want to earn that that feeling I guess the The stakes all. There's something on the line and that's A. Moment so When those game one game three or starting out of the PAN or whatever I'm just looking for division in big moments. Zach with ABC station in Atlanta appreciate your time just curious between Freddie and ozone. What's a tougher out and what? Other tough outs. We we can talk about. We can talk about that after we win series. Trevor Bauer by the way Marcello Zone ahead a huge year for the braves with an. Above thousand hit eighteen homers in just under two hundred and seventy plate appearances and Freddy Freeman has been a very good player league for a very long time also in Opie over eleven hundred Ronald Acuna who Missed the last game of the season for the braves with a wrist soreness, he's expected to go tomorrow. He's well established as the guy this this Atlanta ordered they are number one in the National League and Opie s number one and on base percentage number two in home runs, they hit a lot of home runs and they don't give up a lot of home runs. They're not a team, it's modern baseball. They're not a team that really takes a lot of lot of chances on the base paths not a that's gonNA steal a ton of bags but when they do. They're successful. They had the fewest number of attempted base stealers caught stealing in baseball. This year will see teams run on Tucker Barnhart Kirk. Sally I have not yet seen an official read starting lineup. My guess is Caselli is going to catch tomorrow I would play Shogo I know Max friz lefty, David Bell loves to stack and a lot of managers do stack the order win. You're facing a lefty with a bunch of right handed hitters. Stole Playing Shogo I. Want the defense. I. Still Think he can get on base. This is a pitcher who does this as a staff, but as a pitcher and Max freed who gave up two home runs all season. Now it's worth pointing out he missed him starts down the stretch but gave up just two home runs. In fact, the two starters the reds are guaranteed to see Max. Fredin Anderson Pitch to combine eighty eight and a third innings this season and gave up three homers. So for teen that might have to create something in other ways I want Shogo in the lineup whether or not. He's facing a lefty or a righty is frankly mostly irrelevant. Fourteen minutes away from four o'clock. Couple of other things really quickly luke pickles radio show is tonight eight o'clock live on ESPN fifteen thirty, and if you have tickets to the bengals game on Sunday Bengal's hosting Jacksonville Jaguars at one o'clock the bengals today announced fan protocols pbs for those attending they include seating zones four separate seating zones scattered throughout the stadium tickets being sold in pods of two to six socially distance to the nearest pod you're supposed to stick with your pod.

I am not a proponent of baseball keeping this postseason format moving forward. I've said that a bunch of different times. The regular season for this year I had no issue with anything. They did rule changes. I am glad we're getting ready for the post season at least of that silly rule or the extra innings. Now Start with a guy on second base which cheapens the value of a run. We're not doing that in the playoffs so. But if they wanted to expand, they did no no issue with that. You had to build in some corrections for a team that might have to miss time that might have to play a bunch of doubleheaders that might have an injury that could debilitate their chances. Over. Sixty game season and have more of a chance of that happening that over six months season. So no issue with that. But I will say this this March madness feel to the postseason where there's two games during the day today another one at five o'clock I guess that's an afternoon game as well. Two Games happening right now eight of them tomorrow if you love baseball, do these are great couple days ordinarily I think the best day on the baseball calendar is the first Friday of the postseason when there's usually four league division series games. We get a bunch of that over the next couple of weeks there. There is a true bracket is a true like March madness feel to this is somebody who loves March madness and baseball we're combining two things into. So signed me up for it we have a poll question. On my twitter feed at Allegra fifteen thirty, we've already had nearly eighteen hundred people, vote. It's a simple question. kind of open ended but I give you four choices because that's all twitter gives me a chance to throw up on a twitter poll question. What is your biggest concern about the reds entering the postseason? I give you four choices. Hey the bad's going silent. Be David Bells moves backfiring. See issues with defense. De Possible Bullpen implosion. Now I didn't list but easily could have Atlanta's offense I. Think the fears about Atlanta's offense get mitigated by the quality of the reds starting pitching. If you believe the old axiom that good pitching beats hitting the reds are in pretty good shape with Bauer Castio and Greg. I, kind of thought. Especially, this being twitter that David Bells moves backfiring would get more votes it's only getting nine percent. Issues with defense only getting two. percent. Possible bullpen implosion getting sixteen percent. Going to be honest with you bullpen implosion don't concern me that much. These relievers have pitched pretty well down the stretch. There's a lot of options for David Bill to US and they've got starting pitchers can give them some length. I do agree with the overwhelming majority however, seventy three percent say the bats going silent look it's a three game series. We're not talking about a five game series slump. We're not talking about a seven game series. Love. We're not talking about you know you get off to a bad start. You have a bad couple of weeks and things are gonNA correct themselves. Could you see a bunch of hitters in this series going over eight? And then losing this thing in two I. could that is concerning especially given the quality of the starting pitchers. The reds are GONNA get in the way those guys keep the ball inside the ballpark you can vote now. At. Fifteen thirty. This is an opportunity for Joey votto. There hasn't been a player and athlete that I've talked about more over the last decade than Joey votto. Andy Dalton is probably second on that list. And for a lot of different reasons, we've talked about Joey and we've celebrated Joey. We've lamented the decline in skills. We've talked about his place on the team. We've talked about his place in history. We've we've we've kicked around from every conceivable angle. I May Big Joey Votto Fan? You and I both know people who don't like Joey votto. And I think they associate him with two things. One is money because the minute he signed that contract, he was always going to have people who resented him for the money he was making that's just how it is money changes relationships. Changes, relationships between friends and changes relationships between family. It changes the relationship that exists between fans and an athlete it just does. Joey votto was the most popular athlete in town in Two thousand ten. I don't think I could say that about him and at any point over the last seven or eight years. But he's also often been associated with not winning. Joey's been on three winning teams. He might be the guy who I think is most responsible for the fact that the reds had winning seasons in two thousand and ten, twelve and thirteen. Let's face it I. Think we sort of look at that era and more pinpoint. What what comes to mind first by looking at that two thousand, twelve LDS, the reds lost choked. Joey was fine during that series got on base eleven. Times had three, eighty nine. But he's also had some seasons that were hilariously good that people kind of forget because the team was winning. The team didn't win in large part because they had to dismantle. Wha. What is a reason why people point to the dismantling of some otherwise pretty good reds teams, the fact that they pay Joey. So they couldn't keep everybody else. That is I think to a large degree, a little bit of an unfair characterization, but that's how it works. He hasn't had that that postseason moment he hasn't had many chances to author that postseason moment. He might not get one in Atlanta and the red still may win the series and he may not get one this this month and the red still win and advance and go deep into the postseason, and perhaps even play in the world series. But we talk about X. factors I think Joey von does a huge x factor. He's he's not a guy. You'RE GONNA bench against a lefty. So he's going to get a chance to play against a lefty tomorrow. What else? David Bell does with the batting order he hits high the batting order when when Joey votto was hitting, we know what this offense can do when he's getting on base. We certainly know what this offense can do but man maybe more than anything this is an opportunity and maybe doesn't permanently change some people's opinions of Joey Votto, but it is a chance for him. To author a signature postseason moment that has alluded him and frankly most players who have performed for this franchise over the last twenty, five years. The Voice of the Reds Tommy Thrall will join us next on ESPN fifteen thirty. Three go thank you five minutes after four Allegra. This is. ESPN Thirty Resumes Tomorrow Game, one wildcard series I ever. Wildcard series for the reds which means Tommy throb will make history tomorrow. It also means that he and the reds are, let's say fifty four outs away from. Tommy being able to announce to an audience that the the reds were venting in the postseason that hasn't happened twenty five years. The Voice of the reds has witness. So you have a chance to make some history man congratulations in advance. I really like the way you think that I love that optimism and Hopefully, the team can certainly sure that I if you look at what they've done this year they've been through I think if anybody says this group of players and the staff is data as optimistic as anybody they they believed in them I think what a lot of folks didn't they believe in themselves so anything. At this point. So let's let's talk about that because I'm paying attention they're playing in Saint Louis it's getaway day they're losing the middle innings lost the night before they hadn't won a series in forever and I. I. kind of said to myself. All right that's twenty and twenty seven that's seven under. That's not the final nail in the coffin, but that's going to be a nail in the coffin. And they come back and win that game against the team that has been their nemesis forever they never win series against the cardinals. They never went series against the cardinals when they need to and yet they do and they do it in come from behind fashion the next day doubleheader against the pirates they win the first game in a Stevenson walk-off, they score a bunch of runs in the second. Game overcome an early deficit and it just felt to me that night. You could just feel things starting to turn and granted. I didn't see them sweeping the series and and essentially not losing a series the rest of the way but you could sort of feel things at least for me turning that evening that little twenty, four hour stretch getaway day in Saint Louis and the doubleheader sweep against Pittsburgh. I think there's any question. It's funny because you know talking with the players I asked you guys you know and in group sessions, zoom calls what they felt the turning point was and I know a couple of them engine that that Saint Louis game and I think that was the point when they really believed in themselves and realized. All right. We have to win this game and they realized that once it gets to a point where they actually have to win and and there's there's there's no other way around it that they could do it and they proved themselves that they could do it. I. Think that that was huge for that team I I think it was just a huge turning point that specific game because you go back I remember the series against. the the cubs the series before the one we're talking about in Saint Louis, you felt like you really have to win this and a chance to win that series they didn't, and at that point you. Know This is this is gonNA. Be An uphill battle and then they bounce back against Saint Louis. In a come from behind gained it looks like the way the season gone there was no way they're going to win it, and then the way they slept the pirates. I. It was just that was definitely the turning point of the season. There's no way around it. I don't think there's any other way to look at it and I think that's also the point when they started to believe in themselves and I don't think that the do happening in tandem is any coincidence. With David Bell every single day albeit in ways that we could not have envisioned before the season started or before the season was supposed to begin but nonetheless, you chat with David. Bell. Every single day no. Your access to the actual players themselves in the clubhouse and all that stuff is extraordinarily limited to what it usually is but but sort of assess how David has handled the expectations of this team the slow start they got off to that rocky middle and obviously here the last two weeks. I think it goes back to kind of how I started You know they truly believed in themselves when I. Don't think anybody else and a lot of other people I should say anybody else I think most everybody else did and And I think he genuinely did I I remember asking him point blank I said they. You're an optimist and I know what you say that you believe in your group but at one point lip when the team started to turn things around I said. But at the same time you've been around this game for a long time I. is there a point where you really started to doubt this this team and doubt that you guys might actually be able to pull this and he's beef I mean all along. They were good enough and they were and I i. think we all you go back to the start of the season I. I don't think there was any doubt that everybody believed that this team was good enough to do what they've ended up doing and. So they believed in that it cost the talking about it a little bit today on a zoom call They said look This is a big reason why I came here. We really had a chance to be good, but it's a team that had a lot of new pieces and it takes a team like that a little while to get get their feet under them and and come together as a unit and they were able to do it before you know the sand ran out and that's that's big and I think that's really what it kind of came down to, and that's why they believed in themselves all along because they're capable of it that it just was a matter of of when it would all come together at. The right time this series in particular it is quintessential strength versus strength. The reds they're starting staff that trio of guys they're gonNA throw out there. If this series goes the distance is we've talked about it all season long with those pitchers. If they can just get in, they're going to be fine. They are going to be throwing against a group of Atlanta hitters who are awesome collectively there among the best defensive teams in baseball, they've got MVP candidates what is your biggest question about this series? I mean. I think oddly enough I I think that the reds pitching proved against the twins they proved against the white sox the cardinals are a good team to and they're they're a group of pesky hitters I. Not as potent as the braves hitters, but but sometimes, those pesky hitters can be harder to get out So they they proved it against some good teams down the stretch that that the pitching can get it done. So maybe I am really naive and saying that that braves lineup doesn't concern me on and and that probably sounds really ridiculous when you look at how potent that lineup is and trust me I get it I I, know that that's one of the best in baseball but. For me. It comes back to are they going to be able to get timely hits when they need them because I think the pitching will be there I think the pitching will be good up if the pitching is not good enough it doesn't matter what the offense does. So I trust that the that the pitching is going to get the job done like they have the question is can they can get the timely hit you know the Offensive approach over these five laps live series that they've won. There's been tremendous. I. Think that's the best and you look at the numbers and the team's not hitting that great for average but they were still scoring about five runs a game over that stretch. So the knee, that's that's what matters are you still able to find ways to score runs when you're not getting the hits? That's what they've been able to do. they're still going to run into a few home runs you guys on base. When you do that if all that comes into play offensively, if that'll come together I, think this be incorrect chick I feel good for a lot of different reasons not the least of which I would not have said this in the middle of August I feel very comfortable saying here in late September this team's bullpen is now a strength. Unbelievable isn't that the way they All came together I I. It's funny because there were people looking at me like I was nuts in spring training. When I said that I thought the bullpen was something that could be an overlooked unit with this team because I, I like the arms they had coming in now granted a couple of those guys that I like. Didn't really come you know. Didn't necessarily have the years that I thought. They might Robert Stevenson was one of those guys I really like the way he picks last year and I thought that was a big step for him. I thought Michael rendered made a lot of progress now granted Mike Lorenzen has helped us team but not in the ways we thought he would out of the bullpen I it's been more of the long relief role that he's Had making a couple of spots starts and doing a nice job. But the guys like Lucas Sims that have stepped up the addition of Archie Bradley. I. Don't think is insignificant even though we haven't seen him pitch right Selig raciest I really felt like he was going to have a big bounce back year I know a lot of people were certainly concerned about glazes but he's been outstanding Amir Garrett has continued his. Dominance drummer a year ago and but man what a job Lucas hot and that is just unbelievable and then Tj antone adding into the mix, the guy that really wasn't even on many radars coming in. So yeah, you have to have guys like that come to the party to to to make big strides and a half. We chatted the day before opening day about what it might be like to call a season's worth. Of Games, Road Games from from a distance from JB when you're not there home games as we mentioned when you don't have quite the same access that you normally do now that you have a season behind you and hopefully nearly a month of baseball in front of you kind of guide me through what it's been like a year one in a year. We're hopefully you never have to call games like way to call him this year. He said so I don't have to but. Now You know we made the most out of out of the situation First of all, I, it was truly an honor I I mean I am extremely grateful for having had the opportunity to do the games this year and and and be a part of this organization in a small part of the the run that this team has been on and off we connect this team to the fans and that that is it's certainly not something I take lightly it has been it really. Has Been An honor. It's been so much fun to watch this team battle back from from the slow start. After we all thought, they were going to be world leaders, and then they were anything and then to see him, turn it around in turn it around for a manager like David Bell local guy that's it from here and I. Think he doesn't show a lot of public emotion, but I don't know that there is anybody that wants to win more than he does so. To see him, and the way that this gene is is I think really kinda rallied around him. I. Think There's a leadership there that we don't see that that makes him a better leader than than what you would really imagine just by seeing him on the surface. So that that's been incredible but it has been a weird year without the accent. You know that's doing games in person when the team. That is It's definitely different, but we've done our best to try to. Hide any any imperfections they might come from that situation, but it's been so much fun working with Jeff and everybody up and down the organization there. There are a lot of people that have helped make that as seamless transition as as humanly possible and I can't think everybody associated with now as a very, very regular listener. You did awesome this year so had hopefully have weeks of games in front of you. I appreciate the time and thanks so much. Thanks so much you gotTa Tommy Thrall Voice of the noon tomorrow seven hundred wwl W reds and braves game number one time calling the game with Jeff Brantley, our buddy sand lake here is going to be on this show at five zero five. We'll hear from Joey votto coming up in just about twenty minutes we'll go to Atlanta. Braves this year we'll learn about Max freed. We'll learn about Ian Anderson find out if there's holes in this lineup and so much more coming up at four, forty two but I there is a question every body who covers talks about or cares about the NFL should be asking today the bengals are right in the middle of the answer we'll get to that next on ESPN fifteen hundred. INC presents football in the brought to you in part by Papa John's pizza on the ESPN fifteen thirty, the official home of the Bengals Baseball Games happening right now, twins lead the Astros bottom five that game is being played at target field dusty. Baker's pulled Zach Cranky Dusty Baker has managed everywhere giants, cubs, reds, nationals. He's a now in Houston Dusty Baker wearing an astros uniform still seems weird. It's been I don't WanNa say a whole season sixty games astros by the way did not if you don't follow the American League or if you don't follow baseball beyond the reds, we know the story of the Astros they finished below five hundred this year and they were miserable on the. Road miserable. They won nine games away from minute maid park by the way. Milwaukee also made the postseason with the below five hundred record nonetheless Kenta Maeda and the twins lead one nothing bottom of the fifth inning there. The other American League wildcard game that is happening right now involves the White Sox in Asia Chicago leads that game through four in Oakland three nothing. TORONTO AND TAMPA Bay get underway from Saint Petersburg coming up at five o'clock in the Yankees and twins play tonight. Last night the Monday night football game was as fun as I think, a lot of us thought it was going to be you never really felt. That the game was in doubts. Really wants Kansas City took a lead. And even when they cut it to twenty seven to twenty, you just kind of felt like Patrick Mahomes and that offense was going to an answer and they did and they go on a thirteen play seventy, five yard drive eat up nearly seven minutes in Patrick throws a touchdown pass to tackle. Eric Fisher they go. Thirty, four twenty never looked back. Patrick. Mahomes was Patrick Mahomes last night. Thirty, one of forty, two, three in the air four touchdowns he he ran for one he was phenomenal Patrick Mahomes, I've. I'm not going to tell you the Patrick. Mahomes is the best quarterback that I've ever seen because he's not I've never seen anybody like him and I've never seen anything like that offense and yes, I was here for the greatest show on turf and I've watched Brady and manning and far Marino and Montana, and I've seen a lot of dudes lot of good really great quarterbacks. I've never seen anybody like Patrick Mahomes. I don't think I've ever had as much fun. Watching quarterback is I have watching Patrick Mahomes. I'm watching that game last night and it was brought up on the TV broadcast by. Steve Levy and Louis riddick. Brian Greasy who by the way are pretty good Louis Riddick. Awesome. But it was brought up Eric the enemy, the offensive coordinator I think this is a big big question. that. If you've hired a coach within the last year or two, we'll never gonNA get an answer. Didn't teams like the. Bengals. And the jets. Colts and pretty much everybody who's hired a coach over the last couple of seasons. Why did they take a pass? On Eric. The enemy, the offensive coordinator there. Now, the the for a couple of years. The obvious answer to this question was well, he doesn't go please. I realized realized that's not that critical component, right? Zach Taylor didn't call plays. He got to be a head coach. There's all sorts of dues who've called plays and they can't coach can lead. Can you develop? Can you make informed roster decisions in concert with the people that you're working for? Can you manage game? Can you get guys don't WanNa play for you? Oh, and if you're being Asked to call plays that obviously is a factor as well. Eric enemy helps install the offense I read a piece today the athletic is as good a deep dive into what he doesn't Kansas City where he's in charge of protections he's not the quarterbacks coach but he meets daily with Patrick Mahomes who credits for aiding his development Andy Reid calls the plays there but is quoted as saying A dozen times per game. I'll say to Eric what do you like here and Eric will call the play or at least give it to me to call. I watched that team I'm watching him like losing his mind on the sidelines and not an uncontrollable non leadership way but he's challenging dudes. That offense is the most fun to watch in the NFL. It's the most fun. We've had to watch the NFL in close to twenty years as far as I'm concerned they've taken Patrick? Mahomes. Who Yes was drafted in the top ten in two thousand seventeen I don't recall anybody telling me this would be an MVP a guy who signed a four hundred million dollar contract and win a super bowl. MVP. And his third year when he was taken out of Texas tack. Just behind John. Ross by the way. I mean legitimately it's fun to do that. But the next day when the bengals took John Ross, I didn't come in and take phone calls from fans wondering why they didn't take Patrick Mahomes. I don't know man I it's. It's a very good question. What was it about Eric? The enemy when you went through the process that major decide on somebody else and if he ends up going somewhere becoming, I'm reading today about how he's an ideal fit for the jets are going to let go of Adam gays and he's an ideal fit for the Falcons who are going to move on from Dan, Quinn, and they should. You're reading about that. If he goes on, it gets a chance and my guess is at some point he will for all of these teams that had a chance to hire him. I've seen people I've talked to people who have suggested that the reason why the bengals were not smitten with Eric, be enemy was just wanted to change too much. He wanted to change too much here. He was one to be two hands on with changing stuff. Mind you when the Bengals we're looking for a head coach they were coming off their third consecutive losing season with a quarterback who was probably a lame duck an offense that if it didn't have to be entirely overhauled needed to improve and a defense by the way that was the league's worst the year before yes it might be time to change stuff. So good question man. So. The oldest is on Zach. Taylor we're talking about Zach Taylor this week more than ever. Zach Taylor has to win this football game on Sunday man. I'm sorry. At some point you gotTa, you gotTA show results your favorite this week against the Jaguars team you've had three close calls and your quarterback is exceeding. Everybody's expectations go in the football game, Zach the more he doesn't win football games the more we're going to wonder whether or not he's the guy. In assuming they're not GonNa let Zach, go to hire eric the enemy then going wonder shouldn't they have hired be enemy and the enemy go somewhere and has the kind of success that a lot of people think he can have somewhere else boy it's really. GonNa. Make US wonder why did you hire Zach not? Eric enemy. Or perhaps understanding that the fate of this franchise rest on getting Joe Borough to maximize his potential. Are. There are scenarios. That involve the bengals. Cutting ties from their current head coach. And hiring the guy they chose not to two years ago. I'm not here to tell you that's actually get fired. I don't believe that not here to tell you that. Zach still can't have a really good long successful tenure in Cincinnati. He's got the quarterback I think we all agree. And I'm not here to tell you that Eric the enemy is guaranteed to be a great head coach. It's fair to wonder when you watch that team it's fair to wonder when you watch that quarterback it's fair to wonder when you watch that offense it's fair to wonder why this guy has not yet a head coach and the bengals could have hired him. Which means at some point when the guy becomes a head coach. Get a chance to see whether or not. He does a good job. He does we're really going to wonder why the Bengals Higher Eric be enemy. And for some reason, the bengals are in the market for head coach at some point. And be enemy still isn't a head coach somewhere. I think we should be at the top of the list. Twenty nine minutes after four o'clock you can't watch that team. Any reads to the hall of fame deservedly. So understandably so You can't watch that team. and not wonder. About. The offensive coordinator. And why that Dude can't get a coaching GIG after having a hand in developing the best Qb in the league. And having a hand in helping develop. The best and most entertaining offense in the league. We had to Atlanta will chat with somebody who covers the braves for their network affiliate. Learn about this picture not just Max free but the throwing a rookie the reds haven't seen on Thursday. Are there holes in this lineup? How much pressure is on them to advance after not getting past the LDS the last two years but I joey votto speaks you'll hear him next. You've been listening to football manetti presented by Rdi Corporation on ESPN fifteen thirty, the official home of the bengals. and. Play. Things. Big Hitch through this. Anything, I have to worry about an FCC fine Taryn for good the radio friendly version. Big. Germane. depre-. Good. Undertake guy is. Ludicrous Ludicrous Song is like eighteen years old. Joey votto spoke today Joey votto. You have to go back to the nineteen seventies to find. Players who have appeared in the postseason with the reds four times, and obviously there's a lot of those dudes because they made the playoffs six times between nineteen seventy and nineteen seventy-nine Joey is on his fourth reds playoff team two, thousand ten when they were swept by the phillies two, thousand twelve when they gagged against the giants in Five Games and obviously twenty thirteen as well. The wildcard loss to the Pittsburgh pirates. He is in the postseason. Again, he chatted with reporters about other things being back in the playoffs for the first time in seven years. I'm excited. I'm very excited. And to. Manage that but I can't wait to compete tomorrow I'm glad we're starting at noon as early as possible so we don't have to wait. But I think collectively were all very excited. So I. Can't wait to play. Joey is one of the I. Smile and laugh and Mike Show my emotions. But I. have something on my teeth right now. So Go have. Someone. One of the few guys with with postseason experiences. What's your favorite part about? Elevating your game for the postseason from the time when you you lasted at twelve thirteen. Know so During, the regular season. There's occasional moments where. You know you get a surge of adrenaline or the moment calls just asks. You come up late in the game or somebody intentionally walked someone in front of you and all of a sudden you're shaking with adrenaline just of. and. You get that almost the entire game or every every playoff game. So you know I remember our military last at bat and in. Twelve and thirteen where there is a big moment or we want to continue. Chipping away at trying to tie the game and you know I've felt. A real surge of adrenaline and You get a lot of those moments in the playoffs for sure. So there's not a lot of coasting. What challenges are there that you have not faced this team this year and I think I believe in the nationally nobody has faced the teams that they're gonNA see this year. Now now that's that's I don't. We've. We've faced this club. Quite, a bit. You know you play four game series We had an exhibition series before last year were very. We've played at the stadium lower comfortable playing. In this environment we played noon games here before. So there's like. There there aren't a lot of like new experiences we face freed before. I can't think of anything stands out other than I've never played here obviously deep into September or October. So it would we plan games in October potentially here. It doesn't matter with this late in the season. I don't think I've ever played but I mean it's not a big deal and it's not one hundred ten here. So it's it's beautiful outside. Do you think it said something about you guys that you're able to win a series of Minnesota especially winning that Sunday game after guys cliched. Yeah where you know I'm. Where we're feeling very confident and we're playing. We I don't even feel like we've played our best ball yet. You know I. Feel like all season long it's been Kinda. There's been moments, but you know, I think the starting pitching carried us most of the season I. Think we we. We got some really good performances from. You know obviously Michael Lorenzen help us out later in the year and but starting pitching was probably four tail year. But I truly from the offensive side of things defensively I feel like we've just been okay at best and. I really I, mean, at some point you're not some point the levy is going to break and offensively we're going to. Put everything together because I do think we have a long lineup I. do think we have a very talented lineup and So, yeah. Joey votto chatting earlier today with a members of the baseball media locally, and in Atlanta as well. Twenty minutes away from five o'clock. The offensive thing I I think I look at it from one of two angles one would be. I agree with him that this team really hasn't started to even during the two weeks stretch where they've been as a team phenomenal year really haven't watched them in thought God. They're clicking on all cylinders offensively. At the same time that's that's the continuation of what's been a nine nine and a half week theme of them just simply not being very good offensive team. And so you you could if you're really being optimistic, I, guess you could say, well, Hey, there do they were trending upward. They still haven't hit their stride offensively look out here in the month of I'm still calling it October even though the calendar hasn't flipped yet look out here in the month of October at the same time I come back to the poll question we have on twitter the biggest concern for this team whether it's in this series or in the playoffs as a whole is a massive offensive drought because I've seen them I've seen them go through this season I also I'm in the very, very stark minority. Because I asked this question, I gave you four choices. Offense going silent David Bells moves backfiring possible bullpen implosion issues with defense one point eight percent said issues with defense. There is a really good chance these at least these first two games are really low scoring. Every ounce going to matter a little bit more. A best of three series has such a small margin for error. You cannot give up outs, you cannot give up basis you cannot have defensive us. This is not a great defensive team. Brian Snicker the Atlanta manager said yesterday that he thinks the most underrated quality of his team is its defense I. Don't think they're great. Let's don't have a lot of great defenders. Now you can do some things. You can ensure that Shogo is in the game for defense late, even if he doesn't play against a lefty. Top to bottom. We saw come up often over the last couple of weeks it was better. Does defense catch up to them. The last two times, the reds lost postseason series. Defense was a part of their unraveling. Thanks role in game three two, thousand twelve. Think. A bunch of dudes in Game Two thousand ten. By the way, Scott Rolen is a multi time coke love borderline hall of Fame Third Baseman. The due to imploded in game two in two, thousand, ten against Philli. Good fielders. Team doesn't have a lot of good fielders. Small margin for error likely low scoring games. That concerns me. Eighteen. Minutes away from five o'clock Brennaman and Jones Baseball's about twelve minutes away we head to Atlanta let's find out how good this braves team is we'll do that next. It's not good titans and Vikings shut down their facilities after three players on Tennessee's team and five team personnel members tested positive for the corona virus. Good Kevin McAlpine cover the Atlanta braves and the brand. The reds are playing the Atlanta braves. So it's a good thing that we're having him on. Kevin covers the braves for the Atlanta Braves Radio Network in six eighty the fan in Atlanta and does an awesome job I. Know you're busy. So I appreciate the time. Let's start with Max free. This is a guy who for four or five weeks we were talking about him and Trevor Bauer and others is being cy young candidates, and since then he's dealt with injuries, there's been an ankle he twisted. He's had back spasms. He's pitched six innings Labor Day weekend. He's going to get the ball tomorrow for the braves. What is he saying about his health? Yeah he feels good and that's Of Relief for braves, fans because for folks in Cincinnati who may not know this has been a revolving door in the rotation. This season Max freed is the last man standing from the rotation that started the year matter. Of fact, the have had about seven or eight guys drop off since the start of spring training. So they needed a guy to step up and he's been good. So he feels fine You know he tweaked his ankle in his last outing covering. A bunch play from starling Marseille Kinda come off the mound pivot turn and fire and I think if it's a postseason game if there was more on the line, he probably would have tried to stay in that ballgame but there was nothing on on on the line you know the braves had wrapped up the two seed. So really no reason to push his way through it. So he feels like he's in a good spot he's been able to do all of his inbetween start routines. Throwing off the mound he played catch every day. So I think that the brave Sandal sleep a little easier after hearing him talk today that he feels like he's in a good place going into tomorrow start. All right. We're going to see Max free tomorrow we're going to see an Anderson on Thursday. He's a rookie obviously staying in the division reds fans haven't had a chance to watch him. The numbers are great scout in Anderson for me. You know he's a three pitch guy. He came into the season as the top rank pitching prospect and I didn't think we were going to see him. But again, there's been a lot of needs in the rotation this year he's come up and he has been a flat-out impressive to say the least in seven big league starts it comes out here. His first big league appearance is against the Yankees at truest park here in Atlanta it goes out and shoved against them and career start was at fenway park against the. Boston Red Sox, the team that he grew up idolizing grew up dreaming of playing against. I'm he's got a really good fastball. curveball is probably of his three pitches but his changeup has been spectacular. It's been as outfit tree and Anderson. So you know he's not a finished product by any means just twenty two years old but he's got the stuff It's there he's got the mentality He hasn't been overwhelmed or overmatched by facing some of these top lineups in baseball in a very small sample size so. What you're to see is the guy that I think is going to go out there and I really believe that not having fans in the stands. May help a guy like, Anderson. He's not going to get you know look around forty, five thousand fans when he takes out, Thursday? So he's got a good head on his shoulders for anybody that has seen like Saroka pitched the last few years I see a lot of similarities in Saratoga and scouts tell me when he came up at frizz Buddhist Sarokin and freed are they feel ultimately like Anderson's going to? Be Better than those two guys, and of course, ones an all star in one starting game. One of the postseason for yourself. Some pretty high praise from the scouts as far as the Anderson feeling here in big lake and Kevin McAlpine covers the braves, the braves radio network six, eighty, the fan in Atlanta he is on twitter at Kevin McGowan, if things go according to plan for Brian Snicker, how does he uses bullpen? Well. In the bullpen has you mentioned has been pretty much the biggest strength of this team all year better fact when you give them a lead ethic fittings, the browser perfect twenty seven, no they've had the ability to shorten games with the help of guys like Chris Martin who got a little a little scary al in Sunday's finale. He had to leave the game but he's good to go. He will. He will be able to be come out of the Pan for the postseason they have mark mouland whose closer. So if you want to go backwards from the ninth inning. Milan's your guy in the ninth Shane Green the former all-star with the Detroit Tigers. He's been pretty much the eighth inning guy seventh-inning. You can see anywhere from, will? Smith. To AJ venture from the left side who's been really good They've got a number of different ways they can mix and match this ten matter of fact, Luke. Jackson who was there closer last season. He's become more of like the mop up duty. I. Got a couple of long options in in in Josh Tomlin who was a started with the Indian for all those years Tyler. Matic's a great. Story. Overcoming the gifts and reinventing his career. So the bullpen which we thought was going to be really good has been even better than I. Think Most folks expect it. So again, this team when they lead after five or six, if you're really good about their chances of shaking hands at the end of the night, we a Lotta Time Kevin in the off season talking about how the reds we're going to upgrade. Their offense and one of the names we talked often about was Marcelo Zona and even debated actively here should they should they make a run a Marcelo sooners? Should it be nick has to Janos obviously ozone decide to Atlanta the reds take Castanos? I think if we were to compare the two seasons, a runaway castanos has been helpful here. Osuna offensively has been great. But when we were having those discussions often thought. Of that playoff series last year between the braves and Cardinals Marcello soon in left field at times last year looked lost. So then we get the DA in the National League and I thought two things a that works out well for Atlanta because he can be that may opens up an opportunity for guy that we love hearing. Adam devante play to play left field give me a sense of how that's all worked out. And start quickly with Duvall guy that you know the braves went out and brought in a couple of years ago and you know he wasn't getting a lot of planning and I think he had a tough time transitioning from coming off the bench and the numbers were flat-out dreadful for Adam duvall first couple of years so much so that he spent most of last season at AAA Gwinnett trying to get his swing back try to. Get it figured out and boy where would be without out of? Duval. Especially here in September eleven home runs in the month of September that tied and all time franchise record for homers. In the final month of the season Duvall has been a great story and keep in mind he does have type one diabetes. As you guys know he would have been very easy for him to sit out this year by you know he wanted. To play he's got an opportunity as far as you know. Marcello soon as concerned he came into the final day of the regular season on Sunday with a chance at a triple crown. Now, I, don't think any of us in our wildest imagination could've fuck. Marcello Zuma would have been impactful for this team, but you're right having the D. H. has opened up that door I think if you're the braves you have to. Really. Seriously consider trying to lock this guy up this off season I mean he has been huge on and off the field you know think about you have a guy like Ronald funeral junior you have ozzy all these you on Camargo Young Latin players have gravitated towards those Zuniga since day one and I don't think a lot of folks in that race clubhouse were really big fans of Osuna for what he did in the postseason last year. He's been in from day one and again I think if I'm Alexandropolis and the Braves Front Office that to me should be priority number one this off season trying to figure out how to keep him around especially if D. H. is here to stay and I got a hard time believing, it's not to be completely honest with you I would I would agree with that this is a well-balanced lineup they hit the ball out of the ballpark the. GUYS ON BASE, they've scored a ton of runs, but when teams have been able to have success against this Atlanta lineup wherever they found holes. Well you know the the one. Question Mark as far as the brave offense is their numbers with runners scoring physician matter of fact, one of the worst teams in baseball when it comes to having a runner on third with less than two hours, they have not made productive outs too many strikeouts in those situations but top to bottom I'll say that you know early on this year, I've all these was hurt you know he was trying to play. Through a sore wrist, he wasn't the All star that we saw from a couple of years ago he's back. He's healthy have to divide them now with Kunia and with Freddy Freeman and Marcelo Zuma and Travis Dr No You know you've got Adam duvall and and you know guys that can hit the ball the Austin Riley I guess Riley, would be the one area of concern for braves fan you know. Down the stretch last season, it was a lot of swing and miss a lot of strikeout sort of you know expanding the zone a little bit too much but if they can get Austin Riley going, you have a chance to have top to bottom in your order you know ten fifteen, twenty homers a year from anybody in the lineup, and that's gotTa be scary for opposing teams. So again I think the One weakness has been just trying to make those productive outs with runners on base. If they can do that, they'll put together and again there there's really not a lot of holes in this lineup if you're trying to game plan against as often how much Kevin do do the job? I hate this word but failures of the last two years in the postseason loom over Atlanta's entry into the postseason in two thousand twenty. I would go back then but since two thousand and one, I mean, you think about all the years all time the braves had gotten to the postseason and they have failed to get past the first round I think you know Brian Sniffer was asked about it today on his zoom. None of those guys were really around back then You know this is a whole new group, but I'll tell you this much guys are getting sick and tired of US asking about, Hey, you know women division again you know you but. Now, it's time to get beyond the first round and they understand I mean it's it's frustrating guy like Freddy Freeman who we came up the two, thousand ten and the organization was winning. They were a perennial contender out through two thousand thirteen and then Freddy had to suffer the rebuilding years and they were some believe me they were some painful years to watch this team. But now they're back in just making the postseason if not good enough for anybody in this clubhouse, which is why I think you saw them the other night when they clinched. Happy. Yeah, they were celebrating but was nothing like it was in twenty, eighteen nobody expected it and eighteen. They had a lot of doubt from national folks about repeating in nineteen. They did it again So now the three years in a row and won the division their sights set on much bigger things than just getting into the playoffs and again I think they would love to to not have to hear US talk about two decades of first round exit to the postseason here in Atlanta Kevin phenomenal inside man I appreciate it. Thanks so much. For. Having me, that's Kevin McAlpine who covers the Atlanta braves for the Atlanta Braves, radio network and also six eighty the fan in Atlanta. Baseball postseason underway Houston, and Minnesota tied at one. That game is in the bottom of the seventh inning twins of the home team. Meanwhile, Lucas G Alito who earlier this year threw a no hitter. Is Perfect through six. He and the White Sox lead the as in Oakland by a score of three to nothing. Brennaman and Jones on baseball next. This is Dave Lapham and you're listening to the home of the BENGALS ESPN fifteen thirty. Two oust the our nonetheless we have SAM cure here. Sam As part of the Fox Sports Ohio reds playoff coverage that airs after every reds postseason game we had you on the show last Tuesday. We said we were going to bring you back if the reds playing, they are still playing, but I wanna go back even before last Tuesday take me back eight nine days prior the reds are in Saint Louis? They're winding up a series against the cardinals they won that game despite losing in the Middle Innings five to. Three, they sweep the pirates if I would have said that you two weeks ago this team is going to dart through these last two weeks and get to get to the postseason with a head of steam. You would have said what seemed unlikely I'll tell you that much I mean just there because the whole season they find the same way you know there had never felt like there was any kind of adjustment bait and to be honest with you, it's still really doesn't what I'll say is that a Lotta Times They were losing series. They were never doing the same thing they're starting pitching was great. But they weren't going up right there in the home runs were solo home runs the bullpen you know around the trade deadline is really turned it on the last month. This team but. I wouldn't have felt optimistic about it. That's for sure. Let's let's start with the bullpen and then we'll talk about Trevor Bauer and Sunny Gray who you and I did not talk about last week early in the season it just kind of fell to me like everybody was having a hard time settling into their role and. Over the last five, six, seven weeks even really before this team took off it's sort of felt like David Belden a pretty good job of establishing what everybody everybody's role was going to be. They got Archie Bradley over the last month maybe even month and a half the guys in the pen have been pitching much much better. Walk me through what's taken this bullpen from a liability early in the season to what I think heading into the playoffs is going to be a strength. Tuckey guys for me and this whole thing I know it didn't seem like it was part of the issue but was Michael Lorenzen and a of trying to force him into that eighth inning role where he was struggling, they allow using different situations and he really took off in a different role. Now obviously eating up some innings to three getting time and then got a couple of star where he was really good now to make up for his absence that role I lucas says is really being founded the linchpin of this whole thing being able to allow them to do what it was meant to do because some you're guaranteed good all year right glacier. All the struggle here there but other but overall I feel like he's been really good I give Luke it's kind of credit for kind of allowing guys the slot into different roles into the roles that they needed to be in. Anyone's they got Archie Bradley obviously that's another huge pc came over to feel like you can get to him. If you're really good about your chances and obviously have Fisa time we learnt recently he's had a little bit of back issue that scares me a little bit to be honest with you with a guy who has a almost two weeks i. just I could have been a post season game I don't feel great about that. I really wish he would have got to on the last game of season but. You know that is what it is and she's been there. He's been around. So I trust in him but not ideal I would point to that man. Trying to force guys in the roles they're not succeeding in and Lucas sounds really being the guy that I think chase a whole complexion to the bullpen buying stepping out there really being forced back in I said on on Thursday the day after I wash Trevor Bauer kgo eight, inning strikeout twelve give up just four hits they win the game he did it on three days rest he backed up his long stated claim that he's actually better. On three days rest I said on Thursday that regardless of how things panned out over the weekend I would never forget that I would never forget that outing that was one of the best pitched games by a red starting pitcher in years as a former pitcher as somebody who can can walk me through what he does. Critically give me an idea of what it's like to watch trevor and what exactly it is. That makes him so good. Well. picky. Just digs into everything in a different way than I think everybody's accustomed to. So it's hard to follow along by self included. Once I you know dive into what he's doing and the terminology that he's using. I can dumb it down to where I can understand it I mean he's he's complicating, but he's really simplifying and you're not her talk about getting strike one that's so keefer. Last year it was among the league leaders in all of baseball and walks with stuff that he has he can get the strike one. Then, he can expand this that doesn't have to throw a ton of strapped, but he's been so locked in mechanically this. The right now is just allowing the game and the pitch prior to dictate how he goes along. He's got a game plan forever everybody even as long as he's executing it, it's getting striped one. So it won't basketball. He's already got an idea of what he wants us. To, be based on the execution of that pitch. So this using the pitch set up, the fat be can execute that first pitch. Then the timing, he can really do anything he wants because he got so many weapons based on. So many strikes this year with above average across the board above average stuff. So I think for for air. The strike zone and he said that the other day. For them it's about not beating himself has guys are going to have trouble beating him by stringing together. They're gonNA have to hit ought run off of them Done a good job without this shot that he's given up several but they've been so because he's not walking out to put himself in that situation. So as long as trevor continues to throw strikes I, think one of the key things for him is going to be. Handling their right hand at that because they have an explosive lineup. Premiums probably. MVP. Runner. He doesn't even have the best. Team that lost the Marcellus Zuma's. But you talk about Ron Junior Junior John I'm sitting here thinking about do not want to let you hear. For Him Brady. Freeman is probably GonNa get his and he's A. Freddie. At the better batch up around facing the right handed pitcher. But Trevor's really GONNA have to handle those right handed bass and not beat himself by letting them dictate the action. So that'll be a key that I'm watching for tomorrow is how he handles the right handed batters and when Freddy Freeman and Ozzy August left-handers about come up. There's not a lot of traffic on the basis since you and I last talked sunny gray has come off the injured list and he's made two starts I thought the start against Milwaukee was really encouraging and there was some good and bad on Sunday against against Minnesota if Sonny's even going to be needed on Friday but what did you see from sunny? Since he's come off the Andrew. List. Well, the first outing I was much more encouraged by because it was kind of surprised for him to go out there. It'd be a sharp as he was commander. was there you know? You talk about guys you know struggling to find it takes a along find the field they're breaking ball. It's kind of opposite for sunny. I feel like he's always had such a commander that breaking ball. That's kind of is number one pitch. You know you figure most guys put down one for a fastball because number one pits. He's got a great fastball, but let's be honest with breaking bonuses Kinda So the fact that he was able to go out there and have commander those pitches right away was really encouraging I. think the breaking ball they were give there's plenty of zip on the fastball. The breaking ball is still tight. I think what he did against Minnesota was key didn't land that breaking ball for strike as much. So he wasn't. Getting the chases that you normally gets on his breaking ball but I think for him. That's a good solid mid week bullpen and he's GonNa Right back to where he was I i. don't think he was very far off. It was good to see him go out there this workload in kind of bumped the fish up a little bit and come out and feeling healthy. So Pistons, Huge Huge Wild Card Games against Justin verlander. Legs some really big games was acer that staffer for years over there. so He's been there. This is not going to be anything new for him, and this guy's such a competitor I just find it really hard to bet against him. So if needed. A lot of confidence sunny and I know everybody in the reds clubhouse does you brought up before from a from a reds perspective? It's it's hard to pick the one guy that Atlanta line at that. You don't want to let beat you from from an Atlanta perspective. If you're if you're Brian Snicker as you get to manage these next two or three games, who is the guy in the reds batting order that right now the way this team collectively as swinging the bat right now you're trying to ensure doesn't be I think you've got a point of Gino especially for Game One You know they're throwing up a left handed starter The reds have done well against left handed starting pitching this year I. Don't think they face a guy like Max free. He's been really good. He's GonNa get cy young votes for me. It's GONNA be Gino. He hasn't really strong. September thing is s was nine, nine fifty or something like that So he was really strong and you know he's done with the Guy Look doing the lineup. As kind of Asi goes and he's driving around. You know the reds go a little bit but shogo had a really good September. my stock is ended up swinging the bat really well against both right and left handed pitching so. There's there are a number of guys that have the track record you know, but they're tracker didn't show itself over the regular season. So if I'm going on there with the guys, they have getting face in front of Gino that being shogo and Joey. Ramone Bass percentage about for the man was still pretty darn good I'd have to point to jail you and I've talked about this before before i. Let you go you and I've talked about this before th there aren't many great recent reds, postseason memories but you are in the middle of one of them, which would be game one and two, thousand, twelve, the I man out of the pen. Hopefully, there's nothing like that this week or anytime beyond. But the I man out of the Pentagon San Francisco when when Johnny Cueto. Pulls up with an injury and you come in and you got the win you got the win that game and ending in two thirds. Hopefully no reds reliever longman starter who's being relegated to bullpen duty is in a situation like that. But but take me back eight years ago. That moment what it's like to ensure that you're ready to go to moment's notice when. kind of felt disastrous when Johnny Cueto was coming off the mound what is the reds reliever have to have in the back of their mind in case of something like that starting tomorrow Well I. think that's honestly I. think that's one of the strengths of this edging staff right now is that if somebody goes down, you got Tyler Malley and you've got he antone and Wade Miley, you can come out of there and give you some innings and quality innings at that so. Another thing with some of the flocks of the Bolton earlier in the year and guys not really having established roles I. Think they've because they've been playing kind of playoff baseball the past two weeks. I think it's prepared them for this a big way because I don't think anybody really knew when they were GonNa Pitch. So I, think everybody I mean you saw Archie Bradley in the fourth inning earlier this year you saw you know t j antone different spots, Wade miley finishing games you know different things like that. So I think the next man that mentality and that whole be ready for anything because David Bell shown that's he's not going to be scared to pull the shirt manage each of these games. The past couple of weeks like they were must wins because they were. So I, think the fact that the baseball the resume play the last two and three weeks. I think really plays plays into their hands going into this because I had a pretty comfortable hand on on the East division for for a while. Now I mean it was not that they. Two weeks early but you know they had a pretty good idea that they were going to be the team in that division and so they maybe. Roll back of back off the gas a little bit but it's hard to turn it on in this game and the reds of it on for three weeks now. So there. I think they just kind of stay the course man to be honest with you. They don't have to change anything about their throats because their approaches. Then we have to win games and we have to win series and that's the same thing that's going to happen tomorrow. So I, think they're in a really good position Joey said it pretty well when he says this team's the nightmare of course, he was talking about their starting rotation and then all of a sudden really lockdown bullpen. Axe reason Atlanta braves pitching staff is going over this line up and they're looking at names I you recognize the name on the back of the Jersey and don't let down you know Christian Yelich to twelve this year but every time he steps in a box, you're very aware of what he's doing and the reds have a lot of guys track records like I said that can burn you at any time so you can't take a break with US reds lineup even. Know as a as a group, they really you know banning have the lowest batting average and fifty seven years that made the playoffs. So but those guys can still earn you in Atlanta has to be aware of that and and you can't take any breaks in the playoffs period. So I like their chances i. am a little scared US rent excuse me the the brains lineup 'cause they're dynamic and they're really long and they performed up to their capabilities so. The reds are gonNA need to score four runs Can they do that? That's going to be that's going to be the case if they score four runs on board twice I think they win the series. If not, it's going to be tough. I hope to bother you often over the next couple of weeks. By the way there are people who don't realize your postseason leisure for the reds is almost immaculate. So if there's anybody who gets Four at four outings five five innings didn't give up Iran I. Think Hitters went three for nineteen against people don't realize that you're like money in the postseason. So I hope that carries over to TV. I. Hope. Not. To Get on the first spending too much but now you you'll have junior we're going to do the post-game like you said we're trying to get them social media stuff out there all tweet a couple of things Brian. He's and saw Jim Day Christmas we're all going to be involved with the post game a little bit more a longer post game with some breakdowns. And things like that. That's going to be able to do the free game shows but we'll be out there. If you look for us, you get the information and Yeah. Join the soccer game, and hopefully we'll be talking about a a Red Lynn home. So Sam I pretended man thank you as always. On Santa Care, part of the postseason coverage on Fox Sports Ohio we're GONNA talk baseball gambling in the postseason with our Buddy Sean Zarrella from the action network. He joins US NEXT ON ESPN fifteen hundred. Football Natty Rotea with Clark by Siham a pipeline and sewer Bret Baier and Skyline Chili on ESPN fifteen thirty the official home of the bengals. Tuesday there's nothing happening with the bengals today, right so the different and play the Jaguars on Sunday. There you go. There's football natty. Let's. Stay focused on the playoffs. We've covered the reds embrace from. I think every conceivable angle now perhaps the most important there's great value in the reds. If you WANNA, make a wager before the season started you. If you listen to this show certainly during football season, you know what a huge fans we are of the action we had on Sean? Zarrillo right before the baseball season started who's who's kind of their their baseball guy. He is on twitter at Sean. Sean is S. E. A. N., his sort of pre playoffs gambling preview. I tweeted out a link mentioned the value on the reds I wanted to bring Sean in as the postseason I was going say as it's about to begin, there's actually games happening right now. But at least as as the reds begin to play in the postseason, I wanted to talk baseball gambling with our Guy Zarella Ilisu he is with us this afternoon. I appreciate you joining me during a game during a day in which baseball games are being played man thanks so much. Oh. Yeah. Thank you so much for having me. It's It's crazy I. think this is the first time. All Year that we've had three games going on at the same time in Major League Baseball On a night where there's no other sports going on, they finally started decided to stack the schedule a day game. So I'm not really sure what they doing but. Wind up tomorrow and I'm like a kid on Christmas that I. It combines two things I love baseball and a march madness sort of feel. So I don't know I'm here for this postseason for moving forward. But at least this week and next sign me up. To, do this for me because you you you make you write about baseball and gambling on baseball, and you do it on a model that you've come up with, and then you use projections to sort of guide people in certain directions. Give us an idea of how you do that. Yes. So you know it's it's mostly player driven I. Think anything that you're making with regards to projections needs to be forward looking not backward looking and easy to fall into looking at trends and looking at. Pictures The IRA and performances today but everything I try to do is. Incorporating data from past performances, but certainly looking forward in terms of player production. So it combines that I the way I separate myself I think from other. Publicly available models is I incorporate defense much more heavily I, I used to work I fourth info solutions and they are the driver of defensive on and most of the data that you see on fan graft. So I feel very comfortable with how I built it in the inputs that are going into it but they really in terms of how you build out a playoff projection, you need to take it match up I batch up and. Sort of see what the game by game matchups would be the relative percentages of each team playing one another. So there's you know in my opinion, a close to a forty percent chance the dodgers win. S and advanced to the world series. So if the raise which is the most likely world series were to them, there's only forty percent chance that if the raise make the world series, their daughters you need to account for that other sixty percent and the likelihood that they're gonNA play other teams and what they would be relatively favourite against one another so. When I built this out you know and when I build anything out I, like to do it not having anything else anything else that might indicate what the optimal outcome should be. Or the, you know relative to the market or relative to what other people have buying large anything I create. It's almost like a magic trick onto myself. You know I'm not a not a Coder I. I'm a I'm a person who has. Tried to leverage state to the best of my abilities with background different things, and it's generally worked out in my favorite to this point but it's it's like revealing a magic trick to myself every time part of it. and. that process basically spit out three teams, the resume and the. The Indians. or I should say, sorry, the raising the the white sox in the AL who show likely value to win their respective penance just based upon where they fell in in their brackets. I think the reds ended up avoiding the top part of the Draw I. Think they are pretty much coin flip in the first series against the braves. And then from there I would probably make them small favorite against either the cubs are the marlins obviously that make him a favorite against the marlins but. I think in the software part of the draw, there's the likelihood that the dodgers could get taken out by the short series. kind of place the burs advantage not having to play a longer series. So there's just a lot of things that that play into the match ups and the the wake work out like you said, it's the march madness bracket I actually do it like a super regional college world series bracket but there's just there's so much chaos potential you know even. Even though I see the dodgers is the most likely world series favorite. There's still more likely chance that they they go down to three against the Bursch, just because of very infant baseball, it's not like basketball the best players on the court winning all the time and anything can happen once the ball gets in the air. So it's It's interesting to see that the reds have been consistently undervalued year I feel like oddsmakers are sort of inviting people to bet on them, which worries me a little bit but you also could have gotten them at sixty two, one two weeks ago when they were still on the cusp of the playoff on now they plunge back down to. Around twenty two one, you can get them as high as thirty. Two one is the actual value on the red down to. Probably. Twenty to one I protected them close to seventeen fifty and then to win the Pennant, I like downtown to one projected closer eight one. So that's how I'd be the reds I think everybody knows that rotation definitely don't go through that but I you know there're they're slightly better defensive team. ATLANTA. Which is where some of that edge lies. And then if you just look at often the stats that should've progressed that the braves of three twenty batting average on balls and play this year, these two, forty five. So both of those mark should regrets. You have a hot team coming into the playoffs I. Just you know they're they should be a coin flip favorite against every or a coin flip series against every team except the dodgers raising my opinion can you elaborate it all on something you mentioned which is Defense and you factor that into your projections I think there would be people who watch the reds every single day who might go wait a minute their defense is better than somebody and they don't have they haven't made a ton of errors but there've been things like giving up extra basis thrown into the wrong bag stuff like that. So sort of do a deeper dive for me into how you've incorporated the reds defensively into. Finding value in them. Yeah I think a big advantage that's GonNa. Come in this postseason especially, not the later rounds WanNa get neutral parks. Though I generally eliminated homefield advantage from my. Projections overall this season because Home teams are not getting the the calls on the edge of the design that they used to, and that's it's pretty clearly defined but that is our home field advantage lies based upon what we've seen play out this season So I think the big advantage that the red tab and at the White Sox happens with pitch for having the ability to feel strikes and. That alone especially once get to the next round bind tighter games is going to really amplify. especially with their pitching. Staff. You know they they're going to get the benefits calls in general just because they're more veteran pitchers quality pictures get respect from on. Pires. But the white sox and read that really shown over the past seasons that they're able to steal a ton of strikes She said why talk more so this year with Grondahl but he is amplified jams. The stats as well can become a excellent pitch framer this season. So No see teams in particular. I. Think they get a lot of their edgy behind the plate not as much as they do in the field I think they're. you know the the white sox if you're watching repair, he catches absolutely everything in center field. He's just came in back in cleaner. But. It seemed like the cardinals defensively with Colton long how many Edmund? Who could they? They could move around to various positions. Palo Neal was I think the best defensive left fielder in baseball this season. So they have a lot of advantages defensively cleveland is well, I think their defense makes her a lot of their offensive. disparity that the having unseen. So it plays into why Bieber has been able to pass sexwale season despite. Being, dominant, winning the Triple Crown I. Think you know they were able to clean up a lot of things that he might not have gotten playing for another team. So yeah that that's where the the hidden as lives I think in baseball largely and I wrote a article about this in the off-season because everybody's able to analyze inning and pitching pretty much the same on the same terms. But depending on what you defensive stats you give more or less credence to I, think you might be able to say that you have an edge in and see if it plays out over a long period of time and. you know enjoyment so far it has. So those are teams that I think are generally undervalued the cardinals cubs the dodgers you know certainly complain all three facets but. They're excellent defensive team and on the other side Cleveland Chicago Tampa, Minnesota those those are amongst the best defensive teams in baseball and I think they just get that extra one or two percent that you might not give to other teams. One more thing with this series specifically, obviously, Homefield is not a factor at all once we get beyond the wild card round but the reds are playing in Atlanta and for everything you said about. The. Performance of pitchers relative to umpiring in their own ballparks, this season home teams did still win more often this year than they did in two thousand and nineteen. They wanted about a fifty six percent clip obviously shorter season. So maybe that. Comes back to the pack a little bit if we play a full one, sixty two but but how do you account for a best of three series in which one team is gonNA play in its own ballpark every single game Yeah I mean I think there's certainly an initial travel edge with the teams having to get their job but they did have you know a couple of days to make that travel instead of playing a night game after night traveler what they would normally do during the regular season. So you know really I think the the homefield. Stack this year, which initially were were kind of a wash at the beginning of the season and then it ended up flipping late in the year. If you look at how the teams who made the playoffs performed, they were just basically killing their. Lesser Teams in their division Tampa Twenty Nine Yankees twenty two, nine, Minnesota, twenty, four, seven. Oakland Twenty, two and ten you know they were. They were just racking up wins against teams in their division. They were kind of coming off travel not really anything to play for late in the season so. I'm not necessarily giving as much credence though home field advantages I have in the past it's like basically wash it out at this point certainly later in the playoffs, the the Games are going to be tighter and very neutral ballparks. pitcher leaning ballparks with the roof closed generally in the National League Games. Were playing in Texas. So yeah, it's It's it's just a small sample in my opinion I don't I don't think home field advantage is amplified this season obviously, but I think there is untiring data to suggest that away pitchers are getting the benefit more calls it. Briefly, this may be a stupid question. It's not the first time I've asked one if it is you can tell me. So we're going to have a lot of teams four in the American League that play. An elimination game tomorrow, there's a huge the best of three series even added importance to game one. So let's say I'm I'm thinking about betting the reds and they win game one because now suddenly they're in a position to to win one more game and then jump into the next round. How much drastically if at all do their odds, their futures odds change based on winning one game given the fact that we have series that are shorter than usual to to start the postseason. Alec Mathematics know in terms of the the world series probability, it's GonNa. I, mean I could see it as going down by as much as half for certain teams if they drop a game one but that being said, I think there's going to be substantial value in betting on series presses after a game one loss especially for a team like the red to I see having a pitching edges and games cube game three so. you know I that's something I'm going to continue to update and. After each game and look for those edges. But the reds working that, I see, and I should say the same for Cleveland, against the Yankees those teams I see slight edge is on their money on series prices. But the red specifically who I did place about for Game One I think they should be around fifty percent minus one or two plus twenty. You know I'm I'm not gonNA play the series price. Yeah. 'cause I don't see as large of an edge. See a pretty comparable edge to the game around Bryce. GonNa look for if they dropped game one hopefully, they don't a larger Adjani game series price than I, would find on a game to money line, and that is really generally where I find the most value on series prices they either over under jobs more more than they should. In a longer series, you know it's going to be different than short three series but in five game series, the World Series specifically, you get pretty big swing in the market between Games I mean there. You will get the daughters that you'll get the race today they were on pace for over one hundred wins during the regular season and they're both two games away from elimination right now, the format wasn't necessarily fair to those teams, but it is a reason why I don't think you can reject any team for greater than basically a twenty percent chance at this point to win the world series, you have to get out of the first round away from three-game series into severely amplify your chances during the go value in the reds, you could read Sean Action Network Dot Com make sure you get the APP follow him on twitter at Shawn's. It is a his work is great I use it often this year and you know we're big fans of the Action Network Our guy stuck he comes on with us every single Friday we appreciate the time Sean thanks so much. Oh. Thank you so much festival reds got fifty to one ticket from the preseason and I've got Trevor Bauer because they don't want to get your kids maybe we'll get both of them. Now we're now we're talking to get no argument from Sean thanks so much. Thank you Sean Zarrillo Action Network Action Network Dot Com we are. Late we have to hear from David Bell. We still have to take a telephone call for the first time today. But we don't have that much time. So I better shut up. It's twenty one from six ESPN fifteen. been listening to football in the neck brought to you in part by the rivers sportsbook on ESPN fifteen thirty, the official Olympic bingles. The Houston Astros have gone up four one on Minnesota in the top of the ninth inning. Brantley want to run single following a bases loaded walk issued to those Al to four one. Houston top nine in Minneapolis. The Minnesota Twins playoff history is in recent seasons. Needless to say chequered. They haven't won a playoff game since two, thousand, four, they have since lost. In three straight in two, thousand, six, three, straight in two, thousand, nine, three, straight in two, thousand and ten in a League Division series lost the American League wildcard game two, thousand seventeen lost the League division series in three straight games to the Yankees. Last year, their last playoff victory actually came in game one of the LDS against the Yankees. So by my count, they've lost sixteen consecutive postseason games. They are losing this one four one in the top of the ninth inning in their own ballpark other baseball playoff games. Lucas Alito took a perfect game into the seventh inning for the White Sox who lead Oakland through eight four, one top of the third inning in Saint Pete Bluejays, raise our scoreless. Meanwhile, we're getting set for reds postseason baseball. There's a part of me that still can't believe. I'm saying that Reds postseason baseball tomorrow there in Atlanta Game One at noon. I have a poll question on twitter at Malaga. Fifteen, thirty, it's currently pinned to the top of my twitter page. Your biggest concern about the reds entering the postseason is either a the bats going silent. Be David. Bells moves backfiring see issues with defense or D. possible bullpen employees. Seventy three percent say the bats going silent here's David Bell answering questions today about among other things the reds offense needing to get going even more starting tomorrow. We've talked. About when we our team in I think it's been a process for our offensive. Number One. Our offense has a personality each and every players authentic to who they are. We have you know their go each and every hitter on our team. their goal is to be the best. They can be our goals of coaching staff manager is to to support them and encourage them to to maximize who's who they are as players. They are as hitters You know it's been a short season Um search in less time, which in some ways has been good. You know it's forced us to. Make adjustments quicker but you know bouncing that with the patients and all that, but it's truly kind of forced to. You know to to not waste any time not the you're ever looking to do that but you know we have. been able to get on base walked a ton. You know we haven't had a lot of singles we've hit for power. We've hit homers so. Really knowing that and not getting away from who we are but also you know really focusing on the fundamentals of still trying to hit line drives and even when the results are coming hit into some bad locker whatever. Still stand with that and trust in that and knowing that You know if we trust our strikes on discipline and we stay with that process, we're GONNA keep getting on base but. Sooner or later hits GONNA fall they. They have a little bit more. Only still scored a lot of runs on on the walk in the homer, which is great. But. We've just tried to stay with it make adjustments and just trying to keep getting better. So We have were offenses confidence right now. We continue to work in work and work, and we're confident going into the the series. David Bell chatting earlier today in Atlanta in advance of game one between the reds and the braves Trevor Bauer gets the ball against Max freed. First, pitch is going to be at noon. We go on the air at three o'clock, which means where the post. Game Show. The last time we were the Post Game Show for a playoff game is maybe the only time in my career that I legitimately didn't want to be here. We were on the air for one hour after the reds lost five to the giants. And I literally started the hour by saying this is the first time in my career. I can tell you legitimately I don't want to be here. Obviously. Tomorrow is not an elimination game for either team, but hopefully, hopefully I feel better when we're here tomorrow afternoon. Three o'clock, and so we'll have pretty much wall-to-wall reds, braves reaction analysis. We'll hear from you. It's GonNa be a fun. Day. Tomorrow. Let's talk about a topic. That I think is gonNA come up if the reds don't win this series. And perhaps even if they do next on ESPN FIFTEEN THIRTY This laptop and you're listening to the home of the BENGALS ESPN fifteen third. Let's be honest these games against Atlanta whether there's two or three they are. Quite. Possibly going to be very, very close, quite likely. I should say to be very, very close close games means every single maneuvres magnified. David Bell has come under fire for in game maneuvering. I I'm to stop way short of saying David Bell has to win this series to to be the reds manager. Next year I don't know if that's where Dick Williams head is if that's where Bob Castellinis Ed is I will say this. I typically downplay the role of manager there've been times this year where I've wondered what David was doing in games. There are going to be decisions over these next two or three days that get magnified more than any. The David Bell has been involved in as manager I. Wonder if he's going to press the right button I, wonder if he's going to be guilty of over managing I, wonder if he might be guilty of undermanaged. It's going to be asked if the reds don't win this series was getting their enough. And at face value for the purposes of just determining how successful in a vacuum two thousand twenty was the answer to that question if they lose is going to be no the answer of they win I don't know I kind of view it as get to the lcs that to me was the goal before the season started the added layer of playoffs doesn't change that for me. But what I will really want to know is how do they built on their postseason run their postseason appearance this year next season. I do think it's going to be massively unfulfilling. If they don't win this series I, do think they are going to win this series. And as much as we've talked about their starting pitching, what gives me a great amount of? Is there relief pitching? I think they're going to be. Okay. The question about that is is David. Bell. GonNa, use the right guys at the right time. We'll talk about all of it tomorrow after the game. Enjoy it have a great night. Thank you for listening. This is ESPN fifteen thirty Cincinnati Sports, station.

There has been a pretty seismic shift when it comes to American sports fans and how they feel about the transaction where football and basketball transaction overtaken the national pastime baseball which was the sport once upon a time that had a hot stove time that everyone cared about and players. Moving teams was an enormous deal in baseball. What's Tappan recently? It feels like to me in terms of a new generation loving baseball less and loving the transaction and soap opera and basketball. It feels to me. Sometimes that Cappella being traded by the rockets ends up being bigger than just about any baseball trade. There can be however the one yesterday is so confusing to me whereas someone who has watched baseball for a long time but doesn't necessarily understand the finances right. I remember Scott. Boris would say anytime. There's a work stoppage back when the money wasn't three hundred twenty five million dollars for Garrett Cole Scott. Boris would say baseball's the only business in the world where they spend all the time kicking the can around the grocery store and then putting it back up on the shelf. Elfin asking you to buy it. The owners were always saying that the money was too much for the players and it was never too much it was never too much and even now they couldn't give out these three hundred twenty four million dollar contract if they didn't have the money to do it the part that is astounding to me. Is that the red sox just got rid of a young generational player and I don't understand how the Red Sox can't afford him. I don't understand how you're telling me that the regional television contract is so much better for the dodgers that they could say sure Boston Boston. Sure salary dump. We'll take David Price. We'll take David price too and here are a couple of prospects and now we've got Mukhi bets. You guys in the back row love baseball. What the hell was this? How does mookie Betts get traded when he's a generational player for for the Red Sox if the red SOx can't or don't WanNa pay that money there's what maybe three other teams that can or will so the market just get so small if I'm the dodgers I'm sitting here saying what am I am? I'M GONNA pay him now. Five hundred four hundred million. Where when there's what's the market for Mookie Betts? If the red sox aren't going to pay him the Red Sox to Dan's point boy. That's the strange part of this story. How can the Red Sox with their television contracts and the revenue that they bring in? How could they not afford? I don't get it either. Admin- ah hold on those students. It's not even just the regional TV contracts. John Henry is a wildly successful businessman. Who has treated his baseball enterprises prizes? Like a toy and made great profit from parlaying this dump that he had in Miami into ownership of that team he bought in on Marlins and and then ended up turning it into a wealth beyond any of your imaginations. How can he not afford mookie Betts? They have bad deals they. Oh Chris sale sale a ton of money. They're paying JD. Martinez twenty three million next year. Zander Bogart's twenty million of Valdis making seventeen million dollars. They wanted to get under the luxury tax. They you just have bad deals and I don't think they thought that they are going to be able to pay him. Four hundred million dollars when he became a free agent so they got under the cap and they got some pieces back. That probably won't live up to being. Obviously what Mookie Betts was but they get some financial flexibility and they didn't think they were going to resign him so they got something for us. David Price One of those bad deals. Yeah they got thirty million left on that you're attaching a bad contract with generational platform that they got themselves sells for this year. Forty million dollars or so of financial flexibility which gets them under the CAP that they wanted to get under the part. The part. You're you're making a good point okay. Okay the part. I'm mystified by his. Why the hell does that team need to get under the CAP? Like I understand what you're saying fiscally responsible but what the hell. Oh you don't give Nathan evolved e seventeen million dollars if you're that cap concern. That's the thing that's weird about. This is that you'd think if there's any team that could afford him. This should be one of like. Let's say four or five teams in the fact that they said you know what we're not going to be able to give him four hundred million dollars really makes you wonder how many more four hundred million dollar our deals. There will be in the future of baseball and we're not talking about a team that has a lot of big contracts but hasn't won anything. This team won a year ago. This team is good. So that's this is is just mystifying. I don't know what the reds I guess. They just want to save money. But it's a big card to make any other argument and the Boston Red Sox have just done something that they haven't haven't done since they did it with Babe Ruth. Yeah they they they just dumped they just dumped money but is he generational player. He's the second best for maybe questions about that. It's an eight ninety career. ps he had one great season. The rest have been good to very good. He's had one rate rate relevant. If Mike Trout is not around this guy has way more accolades to he could have one other. MVP's this guy's great man. He's a great player but is one one person making forty million dollars to give you that production worth maybe two or three players. I can give you the same production if not more cost you half the price I am A. I'm legit legit confused about some of the stuff going on in sports today because even as I and we'll get people on here who know more than we do to discuss some of this stuff but I was jarred to see the conversation even understanding how much we hyperventilate around. Here and overreacted knee jerk to a single result. How many people yesterday and Monday? We're going to the place of do the niners continue Jimmy Garoppolo. Hello do the niners. Yesterday's conversation was Bill Barnwell. It was Dan Graziano bringing up the idea of bringing in Brady and getting rid of Garoppolo because the CAP head and because Garoppolo doesn't cost you a lot in good morning. I was screaming. This is so stupid and then someone floated kirk cousins for Jimmy. GAROPPOLO STRAIGHT UP I. I was like woo that I wanted to ask you guys is what do you do with this. If your forward thinking the way the forty niners clearly are what do you do with this. The idea that Garoppolo in base salary cost you twenty three million dollars while Mahomes and base salary costs you seven hundred eighty five thousand dollars. That's Saturday's the Russell Wilson Model of winning Seattle get value at the quarterback and then you can build around him. The cap hit of Mahomes is like five million dollars or something like that. That's nothing compared to Garoppolo. Give it a minute. Like mahomes is going to make that team but luckily Kansas City mahomes seems like one of those quarterbacks I mean look at the performance at Damien Williams had running back for them in the Super Bowl. They prove they can do it. Anybody at that position in fact if you look down the line of Super Bowl winning a leading rusher on super bowl winning teams. You shouldn't be paying running backs anything but Chris Jones that it becoming free agent. That's a decision they're gonNA make. Christians was essential to them winning the Super Bowl. I I love sports. Garoppolo wins that game. They win that fourth quarter. He's the niners quarterback for the next fifteen years now with let's trade or for Kirk cousins. I Love Sports. Radi of and certainly only out Clayton Patrick Mahomes for three of the four quarters and then in the fourth quarter he made the third and fifteen throw and Jimmy Garoppolo sailed it on Emmanuel Sanders. I do think in the macro you guys. Sports fans should Beat just a little bit appalled by the idea that basketball all in football because the owners can't control themselves they could salary lock mahomes in a way that doesn't allow for it to be profitable for free agency to be something that if he pursues because it's a salary cap and you can only make so much whereas baseball. Look at what happens in baseball. You might actually be in a situation if there was no salary cap where mahomes was available available to every team in the league who could be the highest bidder because there was just there was no cap on what these owners with these yachts here during the Super Bowl could spend on this. It's a reaction to the insane rookie contracts quarterbacks we're getting in the first round just wasn't sustainable now. Patrick Mahomes is actually the first first round quarterback on one of those rookie contracts rex. which is the hack the great? NFL Life Hack. He's a first first rounder to ever win super bowl under that structure. So it's not guaranteed you saw the browns go for because because they thought they had won and Baker Mayfield. That's why they added Beckham and Vernon it doesn't always work out goth. Got There after he got the contract. Yeah they paid. And Goss- contract gets more or more punitive Donlevatar Yanni out of booboo stugatz youngest out of a boom boom. This is live at our show with this two guys on. ESPN PIMM radio.

Bryant where you have fifty cent for example apple saying because of what I just saw there. I'm done beefing with people. Kendrick Perkins went on twitter and directed at Kevin Durant the following and it wasn't but a month month ago that these guys were feuding in a way we were all delighting. He directed at Kevin Durant the following. Just wanted to tell you I love you my brother and whatever I did to hurt you. I'm sorry Bro and I hope you forgive me I love you Bro. Real Talk Wind Horse with us now. Why cynical billy's face? I want to do that in a text. You really need to do that publicly if you really sorry what you can't talk to. Each other privately have each other number for sure. Ray Forget about the tax. Pick up the phone okay. So you guys are figuring out how to tell others to grieve. Don't do it publicly. Do it privately okay. We like to poke holes. Yes I know you do Wind horse with us. Now thank you for joining us. what do you make of. What just happened there when horse? Oh I mean I think we all are we all strive for things but human human nature is human nature. So I've been around forty years forty two years so We we all hope that we're better people. We see a tragedy but we you don't always follow through and some of us don't bother we just like to poke holes like we don't think anything about improving anything other than poking holes but how much of the have you seen Brian around the NBA and elsewhere. Where guy seemed genuinely committed to having the perspective stick at least in the short term? I don't know that's a big question. I don't have the answer I can tell you that in my eighteen years being around the NBA. This is this event has had a bigger your effect than any other event Not only just because somebody's guys grew up with him as their hero but the shock and the and the way it affected their own mortality. The fact that You know they think they're invincible. They're all mostly athletes in top condition and the prime of their lives think they're invincible. Oh and so The the crazy thing to me. Dan Is that You know Kobe wasn't actually that close that many people. He was sort of famous for pushing and people away. Although after retired he certainly became more open when he was not trying to kill everybody every night but yet for somebody who didn't hold that many friends and he was massively massively loved and respected and it's an interesting study on the human condition as much as anything else which is one of the things I'd been fascinated fascinated by over the last ten days. Well let me ask you this part of it because obviously I understood how it is the NBA and people love. It would be hurt by this and I even understood. Good how across sports you had you know tennis stars being moved to tears. But do you think it's the same story resonating across America and this is a difficult question if he hadn't been with his daughter so that the connection point could be established within all parents of those final moments. Well I know for me that aspect of it was the crushing part of it When I remember when I was much younger and September eleventh happened in the second tower falling was what really crushed me because I was watching it? I was saying at least the other tower won't fall. It was higher. Hire a second tower is literally brought me to my knees. The Kobe thing shocking and terrible. When I found out that his daughter was there that was the blow? Hello that really not losing. Kobe was not it just. That's what it felt like to me. was that those that blow and so You know for somebody. He liked the Brown James who frankly just was not close to coby And it's not because of any character. Flaw just they were competitors i. They were just beginning to have a relationship but Lebron is somebody who has this teenage son who is much of his license revolved around watching him. Grow and watching them grow as a basketball player. The way it hitting the rod and the way. The reason the Brian talked about it was like the worst thing he's ever experienced. Experience in his life wasn't just that he he lost a peer it was that he is the mortality of it that he and his he and his son the closest was where Koby his daughter were. So yes I think absolutely to me that data exponentially worse I can only speak for myself but I think that is a factor for sure as a dad saying we ever Brian. I have heard people say that they were surprised by the reaction both here in the United States and internationally to the death of Kobe Brian. Were you surprised by it I just again. I'm surprised for somebody who he is not gregarious But I have to say I was over in China for the World Cup last Summer and coby came over there as an ambassador for Fiba and he held a press conference. And you know we the American journalists. Ask a few questions about the American team and asked him a few questions about the Lakers and then then he moved onto taking questions from the world media and the journalists from Greece from Croatia from Poland from Spain would ask ask them questions about their team. I mean quite frankly what does it matter what Koby Bryant might think about your Croatian national team. How could he possibly have that big of a of a an opinion? Why would that matter Kobe because he was really smart because he knew what he was over there? He was prepared and he could say something and compliment compliment. You know something about the Polish and something about the Croatian team and those media outlets that went back and they made headlines across the world. This is what Kobe Bryant. Oh I think about our team. I just think that one of the things that was amazing about him is that he was able to connect with people across the world Even if he didn't have a cognitive connection to that and I think the study of his desk contributes to it because of the fact everybody but he won't even without that he had established a connection many people by the way he went about his check out Brian Windhorst and the hoop collective podcast wherever it is. You get your podcast so Matt Gutman is an ABC News reporter in the moments. After Colby's death reported Aronie Asli that all of his children were on board when he was suspended. For that journalistically Where do you stand on that? It's our responsibility to get it right. What should the punishment be for something like that? Well I have no idea about that but I can just tell you that one of the things that about this era that is just so unbelievable is how much emphasis is put on the the first reporting of news when that actual value is very small. You know what the actual value of having the news. I ego everybody then everybody then will then get it. It's completely based around ego and so to me I think that Especially when it comes to life and death situation. It's preposterous to do that. And when when you talk to journalists who are have been around for many decades more decades me they all have near Miss Stories I was just talking to to A Hall of Fame Basketball Writer last night told me a story about something happened in the nineties. Where news outlet was on the cusp of reporting that a NBA star had eight when it didn't happen and and because they you know because they thirst to be I I just I just I think in general and and it's gotten even more of a of a of damaging because of the social media so I think it's just something that it's part of our age and I tried to study and learn every day. I still make mistakes again. Check out Brian Win. Horse and the hoop collective podcasts. Wherever you get your podcast we have less than a minute here? So let's just ask a couple of quick basketball questions because there isn't anything other than awkward transitions from. I'm that sports stuff Bryan. I'm hearing and I was shocked to hear rich. Paul might be a guy who would replace Steve Mills with the New York Knicks. Run Run the Knicks Organization. How likely that Rich Paul is building an agent empire He's probably GonNa make more money than whoever gets hired as the head of the next. I think anybody who wants to run the next. You've got a successful job. Right now. Is probably a little bit crazy you jerry as well if indeed he does want to be there well you know beside I just point something out about Messiah the way the raptors gotten aside was by hiring him away from another team when he was the acting. GM So the raptors could get surprised if messiahs wandering is for another job it's better the raptors job was better pay more. He had been great in Denver. So it's not surprising to me that the interest in that and if I were the next I would go all out to get him whether or not they can get completely different conversation. One big name going to change at the deadline changed teams at the deadline. Give us something before you get out of here. Wind horse give. TV The transaction feed it. Feed it but the team. That's most important important watching right. Now is the clippers. I don't think it's going to be like a huge name trade. But what the clippers do. Because they're gonNA do something whether they go for Marcus Morris whether they go for. Andre Drummond Ramadan. Something that I don't know about is going to have the biggest effect I think on what happens with the extra. NBA Title Chase. The clippers are out there. Trolling for deals He. Also they have the nation and they are arguably the most dangerous team. That's the team. I'm watching thank you. Brian appreciate your time. Always take care the judge someone not by what they say by what they do. We're a nation of doers. What's Mike Bloomberg about doing things?

Stugotz and billy were very busy during the break forming their own. They're all quiet team team so Is this just football basketball. What is that while I was saying it that Greg Olsen has led very quiet career? just goes about his business business so I have all I have. Is the offense on my all time. NFL All quiet team. They just went about their business. which idea not really ago but go ahead anyway? All right I'M GONNA do. We have any sound to accompany this or anything. I mean.

Thank you Appreciate all your hard work during the break there was totally worth it. So Jeff Passan with us now on. ESPN radio because we wanted to understand. Sukey bets deal. I really don't get it. Jeff thank you for joining us. How the hell man? Why can't the Boston Red Sox afford? People can't afford people. Lopsided is this thing. Take a look at what you've done so you just terrible waste I. I'm sitting here. I'm looking at my phone right now because I've been on for five minutes and thirty seconds but those were commercials in two and a half minutes was crap. That's going to be on the tombstone of this show right there. I D- I don't i. Don't blame him for being bothered by our nonsense and says we cut into his time outraged So what do you have for us though. Jeff can you explain it to us because I really don't understand how I live in a world where the Boston Red Sox can't afford a generational player they can and and there's a very good argument to be made that they should but what this is is the Boston Red Sox WanNa be like the Los Angeles dodgers and what I mean by that is over the last five years Andrew Freidan since coming over from Tampa Bay's takeover dodgers. Baseball operations has done a fantastic job of getting rid of bad contracts and building up their farm system. And when you do that when you have young players who are making cheap salaries it allows you to go out and spend the money on the guys like movie bets. The Red Sox on the other. Dan have a pretty bloated payroll at this point and that doesn't preclude them from spending on a guy who drafted in the fifth round and watch developed into arguably the best player your franchise has had since Ted Williams and yet the red sox worried that because of these other financial commitments they were not going to be in a position position where they wanted to spend the thirty five forty million dollars a year. MOOKIE BETTS IS GONNA get as a free agent in the off season and that they were going to lose him without any compensation. So the DOT Alex Verduga. Who's going to be there right fielder? For the next half decade they got Bruce are grotto. Who's going to be a really high octane? Starter back end reliever and they feel like they got flexibility by sending David Crisis Salary to the dodgers and the deal as well is this why Dombrowski is no longer there. Yes it's it's a big part of it. They were just stupid deals that were made you know they they gave Nathan. You've all these sixty eight million dollars. And he's a guy who has been injured heard pretty much as entire career. Don't get me wrong. He was integral to them winning a championship in two thousand eighteen and they wanted to reward him for that. But money not well-spent David Price. You know the go and sign them to be an anchor for your rotation. He's never really been hat but ninety six million dollars over three years left on. His contract is a lot of money and and Chris Sale starts one hundred fifty million dollar contract this year with questions about his album. When you have those three alone making eighty million dollars and on top of that you're trying to feel the team around it? You'RE GONNA be well over two hundred million dollars every year if you can't get rid of some of those contracts and While the penalties for being over the luxury tax threshold hold. Aren't you serious. They are real and they are part of this budget that the the Red Sox are sticking to what is that though. Jeff I mean John. Henry does not have to stick to a budget dozens thousands of course not now. They're the red sox and you're right then the Boston Red Sox can't spend who the hell can the Yankees dodgers I think it's just looking looking at not two thousand twenty in a vacuum but the years beyond it and the ramifications. And if you don't start something soon that and it has a chance to get even uglier later you know. San Francisco giants held onto their core after their championships for too long and by holding onto that core they find themselves in the position. They are right now. I think the Red Sox. He is In Two thousand twenty that the Yankees and the Tampa Bay rays are a better team than than even if they have half movie pets and that the the white sox and the twins and the Indians are going to be fighting for playoff spots in the central where they're gonna get to play tigers royals thirty eight time. So that's an advantage vantage now. West got the angels who are certainly improved in. And you've got the Astros and the as there as well and the Rangers are better so if you're playing for a playoffs but maybe maybe you're hoping to get in the wildcard. Then you're gonNA stay all that on one game. I think it's just a value. Play at this point and you can listen. There's a really good argument to be made. Screw value your the Boston Red Sox. And he's mookie Betts. Do what it takes to get it done. But that's not how they're running their organization anymore with limited charge when the news gets the Jeff Passan. That movie bets is going to be traded. What is your level of surprise zero? This has been a fait accompli for for a week. Plus now like that you know. The Red Sox got to a point after Alex. Cora was fired where I think there were so many things that were building in the wrong direction direction that they felt like something drastic needed speed on it all off season. They've been talking about getting underneath the luxury tax special. One hundred eight million dollars and they're not going to do do that without trading. mookie Betts because no one's GonNa Take David prices contract on unless you get some asset value back and mookie. Betts is is one of the greatest just players in baseball right now. I mean it's a very short list behind my trout. And it's probably him and Christian Yelich in that conversation so They understood at that. The the easiest path to getting underneath that two hundred eight million dollars number was trading Lewke bets but damn like. Are we really in a place where the Boston Red Sox doc needs to get under a two hundred eight million dollar payroll Jeff. I'm always says they suffering mets fan than I want the guy whoever's running the raise that's the Guy Iowa running my organization the Astros got them or they get the latest version of him and James Click. Do they upgrade over. Jeff Leno Jeff Leno won a championship team. That was cheating that year and put together One of the really good five year runs we've seen in a while now and has a team that While they're gonNA run some financial flexibility issues going forward they're still really good so No I would not call it an upgrade at this point If you WANNA talk about as a human being You could put a slug in charge. And that would be an upgrade in that in that respect Yes there there was not bad and James Click is is very well thought of In baseball circles and look the the Andrew Freedman General Manager Tree I has has grown by two this year and it's going to continue growing in the future because what the race do the model that they have like. They've kind of broken looking baseball a little bit because they spend less money than just about anyone and they not only have a an excellent major league team they have arguably the best farm system in baseball to Jeff first off. Congratulations on being like baseball. WHOA JR and bring all these stories and thank you for giving us your time on on a very busy day but do the thing I mean Jonah?

The rockets acquired Robert Covington from the Timber Wolves and traded. Clint Capella to the hawks. The T.

Talk about What is happening here with this new? TNT Show where left. Go and Dwayne Wade a boss move by calling him. Just let go Adam left. Go there Ya go to boy now with a question Mark Call Them Ryan Lee it all the way so Adam left go dwayne Wade. And who else is on that show. Because I didn't see what they were doing ill and parker. Okay okay. You don't know the first name okay. Big Guy all right so one of the things that you've always heard me laments around here is why why hi. The pregame shows have to chuckle. FESS Y One we're in the content business so much of the content is just sort of lazily predicting Games which is an interesting writing of fun or good television or radio and I'm not totally sure why it is. I thought it was Charles Barkley but it might be more than that why it is is that TNT and tbs are willing to do things that seem like they're more fun than some of the other people who get to play around sports. How was that at last night Mike? Because I haven't seen that but left go is a bit of an anarchist. He has his fun and Dwayne Wade and him seemed to have a really cool relationship where where they can make fun of each other and I just saw early in the proceedings. One thing I did see is that shack bet left go That one of them would have to do. The show. Stripped down to like no closing top and tidy whitey which is a terrible combination to be on television a tank top in tighty whiteys. I think Adam go has trae young and shack has Damian Lillard in the three point contest. It's going to be worse. If left loses I got Dunkin Robinson. I'll join this really willing to get into it.

Purchase only in advance auto parts for always headlines Information during the sportscenter on. ESPN radio all throughout the day I saw the NBA sent out a tweet with Lionel Ritchie and Danny Green standing next to each other and the capture was. Hello is it threes as you're looking for and I thought Oh you don't like that one roy. Roy doesn't like that one. Just put it on the pole Guillermo at Lebatardshow show Lionel Ritchie. Danny Green photo is it threes. You're looking for a funny or not funny. I mean the original song is not is it means. You're looking for a fair enough. Uh Thank you point that out. It's very important that we be exact on the pond in the rhyme so that we can meet your high standards of pronunciation an in joke teller. These are things that matter such a great cause you love being the critic like it. Is You like to poke. Oh Kohl's is what's to God's likes to do just spends all his time wandering around seeing where he can poke. I wanted to ask you guys about something that we have not talked about that. I found interesting. Okay America's got talent. I let go of Gabrielle Union. And let her go after she was pointing out what appeared appeared to be a toxic work environment. And Gabriel Union. If you're not familiar with her work and her strength she is not the one to be trifled with she. Just she's very strong and she's not gonNA put up with your nonsense no matter who. You are not Dwayne Wade. If you're anybody else she's not putting up with nonsense and so. I thought it was interesting. That America's got talent got through that with you know the collateral damage of wounding Gabrielle Union. In a way that it seemed unpleasant but Simon cowl smoking cigars just typical country club privilege stuff indoors doing stuff that was viewed by. Hi Her as a toxic work environment. And then Terry crews got into the fray and one of the things I wanNa tell you about Terry crews is I really admire Meyer him for a lot of different reasons one is that he was willing to put his name and this can be hard in male culture. Sure can be hard in black culture. He was able to put his name on muscular. Black Man. Yeah Gay Executive secular sexually harassed me and harassed me he put his name on that. I thought that was brave and I just find him generally interesting but he came down publicly protecting his work environment. America's got talent and it would appear coming out against Gabrielle Union. which made a whole lot of black people turn on Terry crews in a hurry like just never mind what your body of work is never mind all of the good things you did? They turned on him fast. Ashby because he's in a work environment where Gabrielle Union looks like she got Treated unfairly and instead of supporting her his black doc colleague he went companyman. He supported America's got talent and what he came under was fast and Furious Korea and unpleasant and ignored his body of work but he listened and then apologized profusely and publicly and did it so so profoundly that I thought it was impressive to see that he had realized the error of his ways and and spoken his apology. And dwayne Wade I don't know what did you make of the Tweet Mike Dwayne Wade Gabrielle. Union's husbands saying somebody needs to take away Terry crews phone is it because it it was so profusely apology. That and the apology was public instead of to Gabrielle Union. Like what was happening there. That would make Dwayne Wade Tell Terry crews to put away his phone or perhaps apps too late too little too late. Okay I mean and fair not I mean. It's understood that Dwayne Wade's could it be backing up. His wife really are right but too late and maybe enough doing this because you know gabby privately. I don't know what Ah what was really at play there but it was certainly interesting to see and play out on social media. It was all interesting I thought and I understand not wanting to forgive somebody but we are talking today about the idea that Kendrick Perkins is asking forgiveness of Kevin Durant after Kobe. Bryant's death fifty cent and saying I'm not feuding with anybody anymore. Fifty cent is the celebrity that nobody wants to feud with. You do not want to be there. He will embarrass issue with really private things he says. I'm not doing it anymore after Kobe. Bryant's death I'm not here to tell. Gabri Gabby Union or Dwayne Wade. How will how to except apology or not to accept an apology? They were wounded by that. I understand why they were wounded. By what have I also understand that it is kind of odd like what Perkins did and and what's going on with cruise in the Wade's but if something plays out publicly like the Kendrick Perkins and Kevin Durant thing played out publicly. And I think it makes sense to apologize publicly too you because you embarrassed someone in front of a lot of people so those people need to know that too. That's fine but I think the private apology feels more sincere. It means more to people to actually pick up the phone and apologize to them. I understand what you're saying starts publicly and don't know what Terry crews tried right. We don't know if he was reaching out or not to Gabby and Dwayne Wade But he did apologize publicly and profusely in a way a that. Didn't shake my admiration for him. Like I like what. That guy is about You can cynically look at that you can absolutely say he Only did that because of public pressure And I just admire the fact that he realized or thought he realized that he made a mistake. You could say all the cynical stuff. He's protecting his endorsement. Everything else I just. I admire anybody who's willing to cop to their mistakes in a way that seeks forgiveness. Give nece you don't have to give it if you don't want to but I would if I were you in this situation I would. I would see the merit like assuming the Terry crews is what he seems to be from the outside. I don't know him in any way but he just seems he's so he's really honest man. He came on here. Volunteered is porn addiction. Like he's a really honest person and he's in the camera he's in front of the cameras an awful lot and when you're in front of them as much as he is and yours opinionated as you're gonNA make some errors in that area and boarding conversation.

So you saw all sorts of weird the things during the super bowl among them Antonio Brown having dinner at Prime One twelve with Martha Stewart and in the middle of the Super Bowl Antonio and Tonio Braun appears to have chosen a really bad time to go on the apology tour. I don't know if you guys it was actually hard to catch which should not be the way that the Antonio Brown apology tour should go. It should get Max is outside of like if you're cynical really wondering how. So what brought about this quick turnaround like how. Why was now the time that he finally got it? It started with like an instagram post apologizing to the Hollywood the police department and then taken a twitter and being a I mean apologetic. I guess for what he'd done and then he did sit down with Josefina lately. Local radio stations have been in interviewing Antonio Brown. He even still did a stand up sort of promoting an upcoming fight with design. That seems seems to be in the work. Would Jake Paul. But he wasn't really jawing at him but he still did the face to face and SORTA smiling and outside of like okay. He's finally listening to public relations advice. You would think but the public relations advice would be. Hey just sort of for the public. Why don't you wait a week on actually realizing what's wrong also? It's just easy to question the sincerity. Of course it is. Perhaps they felt like. Hey you have a lot of eyeballs. Lot of ears right now. I understand what you're saying. Wait wait until the big game is over. Maybe do it. During the off season maybe a month from now it becomes a bigger story and more people are paying attention. But I'm certain that's what they thought like Super Bowl. We gave a lot of people paying a dangerous epic miscalculation sure there's a lot of people are audience right now that are finding out that Antonio Brown is trying to apologize to not just the the Patriots or the raiders but the entire NFL again. We'll put it on the poll Argue surprised that you missed the Antonio Brown apology tour or I suppose. Did you miss the Antonio Brown apology tour. Because it's not really or. He sat down with Anderson. And guess what is he doing with local radio. Stacy I saw him at ninety nine jams. I only seen this because I follow him on instagram. And he's posted like he's gone on July the occasionally when he's like like with the beat and he's he's just doing these things that you would think there would be some sort of big build up to a big dramatic sit down interview where where we get. You know the top network anchor to sort of sit down with them on sixty minutes and figure out like what's going on with you Antonio and now just sort of came came and went and considering how he was one of really the sports personalities of twenty nine teen. He was on the tips of our tongues day in and day out. It's kind of weird that the apology is not getting any attention because he desperately needed to apologize. It looked like it was spiraling out of control and just one. Maybe he may be going to jail. Was the arrest helps because they got him like the judge court ordered mental evaluation or ordered That he's gotta be off all all drug. Yeah maybe it's a mental evaluation. I don't know how quick that came. But if you saw the video of him leaving the jail he was as Antonio Tonio Brown has ever telling his attorney. He needs to pretend to be his chauffeur on So I don't know what maybe got some really great help and advice. I don't want to be cynical cynical and that but when it comes. Sounds like you want to be said well if it happened so quickly it capitalizes when. There's a lot of business down here for someone like Antonio Brown. It's easy easy to question that and just understanding mental health works you just it. It just doesn't turn like like a light switch like that. Generally it'll it'll be interesting to see if he plays the NFL next year Antonio Brown that part of it's going to be going to be kind of interesting if a team is willing to take a chance on on horse going it's GonNa be willing. The cowboys will do it in a second. You think so Jerry. Jones doesn't mind the circus they would do it in a second as soon as he's cleared by the NFL. Yeah well that's a a huge part of this to taking out of the equation. He needs to prove it to you for a little bit more than a couple of days that he is a new Antonio Brown look he apologized legitimized immediately. He went on his twitter account and he made fun of Robert Kraft and the massage parlor thing. Which essentially and did any ability for Antonio Brown to get back to the Patriots no matter how much bellichik or Tom Brady would've wanted him back because once he did that I can't imagine Bob Kraft saying yeah. Let me give you some more of my money. But he immediately apologized for that as well and it didn't mean much because next thing you know he's making music music videos Was it swearing off white women or not wanting white women in your face. Which one was it? It's just weird like at the turn of a dime. He is now like like featuring his wife all over it since Graham trying to portray himself as a family man and you don't know what goes on behind the scenes. He's someone that lived a very public life but he kept his family for the most part the hidden. It's just it's just an interesting public relations turning regardless of like how authentic it is just even if you're like man I'm so happy you're right Antonio let's get get this out there as soon as we can't just not during the Super Bowl where it could be drowned out. Why can't we just assume that rock bottom was drew rosenhaus leaving him for moral reasons like white quite a candidate? All at home right there like I wasn't doing anything wrong. Drew Still Rolling with me. We got this. Oh my God drew Rosenhaus guys leave. God throw me immediately in jail. Put Me Gig get Joe seen on the phone I. We should try for Antonio Brown if he's doing all the local radio stations. Why don't we try to get him in in here? I've always been rolling. Yeah we as soon as I saw him on the apology or look. I'm guilty of it. I'm like well let me get on that well but I'd just like to talk to him because I actually find everything that's happened with him especially if he's actually done some introspection on what seems like a psychotic break of some sort that no matter how selfish he used to be none of us could have possibly seen coming the disintegration that would just wreck a year in his prime. Feels like a quick turnaround though. I mean the Rehab Process Right. Like he's been going at this for over a year. Now it's today but who knows how much evaluation allegation or gotten who knows it usually takes those medications a few weeks to kick in when When you're dealing with psychotic breaks it takes a it takes some time to get into the bloodstream? Bloodstream and actually healy unless his behavior was the result of a direct trigger. Any is removed that trigger from his life. And that might help explain plane. Why this has been? I understand why anybody would be cynical about the apologies. It's been too many months of bad behavior too. Many months of everyone saying what's wrong with you. You're being an idiot. Listen is in the somebody get the help you need. It's been too many months two days after the arrest next thing you know. He's sitting in a chair. With your scene Anderson. He does seem addicted to the narcotic connick of attention. That one was before all of this after all of this during all well it just seems like everything is happening so fast because he finally got the help court ordered help that that many for over a year have been well for about a year. That people have been begging for him to get and as soon as it gets a quartered. Hell I'm good. I yeah I understand the cynicism on that or the realization that he's thirty one years old and he just threw away you know millions upon millions of millions of dollars in doing it. That's not in the last few days as he did it. All season poke holes could just be the super bowl to the super bowl. got here and he realized good God. This whole thing is in Miami and moved on without me. I was nothing but a speed bump no matter what my narcissism and self importance is. The game moves on very quickly without the fact that the super bowl happened. We can't really take that out of the equations a a decent thought because look at what's happened with Kareem Hunt where the chiefs being in the Super Bowl brought on a very public incident with him. So perhaps we tell people about the incident for those who pulled over. There was alcohol involved. He he'd luckily rain into what appears to be the nicest policeman in the history of law enforcement and he was breaking down to the the police officers saying. I'm the worst person in the world. I did this myself. I could have been in the Super Bowl. I love Cleveland. But that could could've been me. It's funny that you say that because right now is the chief Super Bowl victory parade. It's coming across our televisions right here. And I would imagine that outside of San Francisco. There aren't a whole lot of people watching this more hurt by what's happening here then. Kareem Hunt just sitting here watching the middle of the day as the buses go by an an all of Kansas City. Kansas is covered in red. It's gotta be especially tough for him after watching the game too. Because you see the performance Damian Williams had and Kareem Hunt has proven posts pension. He is still quite special. And if Dean Williams who is just a guy that had been cut by the dolphins dolphin making just million dollars on salary can have that super bowl. Imagine what Kareem Hunt could have done for Dan to reluctantly take party. Something has to be happy. Doing probably tougher Jimmy Garoppolo to sit through to two. I sat outside of San Francisco. But you're just poking whole O'CONNELL here just poking holes jimmy grabs the garoppolos watching the parade. You be able able to watch the parade. He lost my team loses. I can never watch television for a couple of days like I. I more people than me need to do that right. I'm sure they do that. Put the Opole at Lebatardshow Gammel if your team loses the championship do you stop watching television. For a couple of days you can listen to the Dan Lebatardshow with this to God's ten to one eastern on E._S._p._N.. Radio and you can wash on E._S._p._N. News.

What The Snell?

"The. This is no Spanish focus baseball podcast here. Your hosts Tristan Cochran's and Eric era. Bell have correct hath. Not that's right. I am tristen. It is Thursday, June twenty seven. This is the fantasy focus baseball podcast. But since I'm tristen there's no Eric today. Eric, Eric bell is on vacation for the week and in his stead we have my good, buddy. My colleague, my friend, my all pal on the podcast from Monday, AJ mass, joins us again. Hello. AJ. Louis amazing. Eric goes on vacation. And the Phillies wake up, it's it's frustrating because the metraplate them, but what are you gonna do? It's the watched pot never boils thing. I mean, I guess when he's not watching Hui kidding. He's watching the guarantee he's watching these games. Yeah. So when he's on the road and he needs to just be on the road. He should just get on the phone and call in doing Eric, you know. No call no call is like a Coors pitcher just put him on the road. He's fine home game these struggles. So he's Jon snow days. And comes full circle love it. And that's of course Kyle is the mastermind behind the glass. You're behind the glass, technically. Right. I know you're everywhere in the studio. Well, yeah, I mean you guys are on the other side of the glass, I guess it depends what you're talking about. But yeah. In some sense. I'm behind the I'm behind the glass. Rebooting my internet. That's a little beeping year at the beginning of the show. Goodness. Get a love when your internet doesn't work, but it's back thankfully, we have a lot to cover today. Plenty of baseball news. Some good news. Some bad news. It's like a regular show or something. So why don't we get into it with the buzz? Asia. You know, I like to start with the good news. So let's talk about some injury recovery's and we're gonna go to the state of Texas, where two players have returned and I'm going to begin with one who I'm a big fan of mister Gallo of the Texas. Rangers back in the lineup returns from the deal. This is on the caught a few people by surprise. But if you've been following his rehab assignment, not would have known that gala was expected to come back for the full week has now played, two games betting fifth in the lineup for the Rangers, which AJ LSU one part of this. It's kind of curious to see Joey Gallo batting fifth behind. No mama Zara. We've talked ad nauseam on the show about his underperformance of the fact that he's just spinning wheels, not developing. But Gallo game and center a game in left. He's one for six so far. Double three walks. Three ks. Yeah. We've got one of our big power sources back your thoughts on gallows return. I did. I have a lot of shares of Gallow in fantasy so happy to see him back. And, you know, I just think is when battery turns from lengthy lay-off, I don't worry so much about immediate impact, you know, the timing comeback, even if you've done a rehab stint, there's gonna be some issues when you get to the major league where you just you might meet a day or two. So I'm not concerned about a slow start. It is interesting to have him in the five spot, but maybe that will jump start Mazaar 'cause, you know, people are certainly going to be a little bit more afraid of Mr. go, so you, would you place an investment in our than do you think there's something to that? I'm not a big believer in the line of protection aspect, but galaxy or has been pretty extraordinary could pay some dividends. Well, you know, in the three true outcomes era, I do think it is. It's a little bit more prevalent. When you have a guy who. When you pitch your pitch around, and, and when you pitch to he serves it up. So I think there is something to it, when it this particular type of player, you know, are still not top one hundred but if you're gonna deepen up league I do think he could challenge for that going forward. If there's any impact of this lineup swap so, you know. Yeah. In a league where teams where you're looking for jumpstart certainly worth worth. A gamble Mazaar was one hundred twenty third overall, my most recent rankings outfielder thirty eight in AJ's update this week, by the way, I will work to get them a updated rankings in there for you later this afternoon. He was one hundred and fifty eighth and outfielder sixty AJ's point based rankings, Joey, Gallo, her was a little bit more generously. Ranked fifty seventh AJ's most recent Alfie twenty four and first baseman nine in that the high point for me on Joey Gallo, and he's going to call in question. My, my ranking of him, of course was roughly fiftieth in the. Head to head categories. I'm not really bothered by the low batting average. I'm just not. So it's good to see him back. I'm glad to have him. I've a lot of shares to AJ as, as you've said, you had good news and the Rangers very good schedule coming up for next week last week going into the all star break. Let's stick in the same state as I said, and go to George Springer on the Astros. The Astor's getting a lot healthier of late. George Springer was activated on Tuesday. He homered on Wednesday. And in those two games the Astros have gotten very close to what's their typical lineup. There are one player away from that with Springer altuve bregman Brantley and your Nalva is betting one two three four five. Carlos Correa is the one who is still missing should be back sometime in July, perhaps, by the end of the month. And he's been typically batting after Michael Brantley here. So AJ I wanna ask you to parts about this when George Springer return how this impacts the lineup is good for some bad for others and Korea's return. What kind of impact do you think that has is there any kind of reactive? Approach. We should take his fantasy managers. Not necessarily I mean you know, it's a nine person lineup. And when you have eight that's seems everyone on team just when they're in the lineup. They hit that many solid that adding one more is not going to be that big a deal. So I hope you can get much better than it is it terms of Springer himself? And we're talking about twenty five hundred here. So it's great to have them back. Those people who are out in for a month or probably delight the likely singing praises. And Hosanna 's in Harare. He's back. It's a TV got a player that caliber back. But I don't necessarily think we certainly expect to run game increase. They just I think they're good continue to chug along at a clip and increases typically aren't at that range of two runs the game. So it's a good point to make. I think a lotta times a fantasy we tend to react because of the excitement of the player returning. But it is good news for the Astros. And we knew they were a scary lineup beforehand. They could spring right back to that level. If anything. To me. And I'm nitpicking here when they go to national parks. They have a series coming up with that. They're going to have a D H problem where they have to figure out left field between brain leeann Alvarez it's probably going to cost him at bats for Josh Rettig, or Tyler white. But these aren't the stars you have. So I think it's good overall. Hey, you know what? Even for number nine Robinson cheer knows, maybe just kind of boost up the times, they turn the lineup over at a couple of runs or RBI, but nothing that I'd make a big rash. Move Springer your rankings AJ. I know on the Monday update you had them thirtieth overall outfielder twelve would you change at all? Or was that kind of projecting return predicting his return? I think when you know the biggest hit of layer gets, you know the first rankings after an injury. And then yeah. How long they're gonna be out, you drop them maybe fifty spots, depending on the time. And then, especially in a case, where you're like it's an unknown timetable, you know, you just up and down based on that. And then every week at passing slowly move back up higher and higher. Because we're talking arrest of season and the closer that they are to return, the more they get back to where you think they're going to be, I think this is pretty much. Reflective of where he's going to be going forward and doing the math of what's left in the season. The larger the sample remaining in a player season compared to an absent at the stage. You're gonna see wider disparity in my rankings. I if you have a player who misses time due to injury it has greater impact today than would have in April because there's less season left. That's just the math of thing. So fair point there another. Well, this isn't really an injury recovery. I just love the story. I love the player. He so good for baseball Shohei Ohtani. We gotta talk about him because he's been one of the best hitters of late. I, I know that, that there was kind of like a little Dow. Down spot here in terms of the fantasy buzz when he went to Saint Louis with the angels, and they just didn't have the D H. So he's been pinch hitting a little bit. But look at this past twenty one games he slashing three seventy seven four twenty one seven thirty nine. He has six homers. He has seventeen RBI and this guy could still basis. We've talked about on recent shows but in another little bit of good news. He pitched off mount on Wednesday for the first time since his original, Tommy, John surgery. So as a pitcher, the good news is beginning to come. That is a very major step in the Tommy, John surgery recovery process. And we've talked about twenty twenty when he comes back fully as a pitcher, so AJ, we've gotta talk about Tani's present and his future. Your thoughts on each? Well, in terms of the present the presence is the hitting do not expect him to pitch this season. That is not going to happen. You know, the progress BAC throwing a Mounsey anything that happens in that regard. It's great news. Every time he does it and there's no setback. But in terms of value for this year. It's the hitting hitting alone and it's been pretty good. Absolutely. Now for the future. Of course, the thing that makes Otani such an interesting unicorn is that w and if he can start right out of the gate, you know, he proceeds to the point where you could just say, hey, here is you're gonna get even twenty starts next year. I mean, the sky's the limit in terms of his ended without a doubt. I think the way things are trending and the success. He's enjoyed with the bat this season really leads to a lot of good things. He was an exceptional pitcher before he got injured last season. So as you said, if you're sitting in the bar twenty starts. It's I'll buy in. I'm not expecting more than that. I don't think it's fair to project more than that. But we already know the bad can play on the days that he's not pitching. You throw them in there and our daily leagues daily transactions as age and I think you're going to be happy with what you get look. There's there's definitely injury risk involved. But this is a pretty positive story, we might be talking as positively bet show, Tani next preseason as there was the excitement when he first came over to, to the US last year at the beginning of this year, except we're going to be drafting a lot higher, where would you rank them? I give me a number if you had to throw ranking for twenty twenty right now. What would it be? Interesting thing like part of there was still that little trepidation, like you know, because we use coming over, and they're like, oh, there's something that might be going on where he you know, there could be some damage that could be done there that we know that he's fully healed. And, and yes, there's always the the risk of the repeat of the the injury. When you, you have this kind of situation. But I think this is about, as strong, a injury free risk, as you can have is like, when they've been cleared to come back. That's the moment where where the values the highest. I mean, I think we're definitely looking at guaranteed second round as low and. And he could easily be Attila of the first route while that, that is that would be pulled ranking I could happen if you can use them in both. I definitely think that's, that's where you gotta look at it. And I think he is grading noticeably better as a point space performed just as a hitter this year than he is in the road old leagues the on base percentage. There alone is driving a good portion of that. So I was going to say top fifty is where I begin and I'm thinking has a three at the beginning for me. But. You know that, that's a pretty bold rank today. We'll see how this plays out. We're gonna get to some of the bad news. So another one of the more exciting left handed hitters in the game is Eddie Resor resort. And unfortunately he dealt with a left ankle sprain. He just suffered the other day, and it does look like he's going to head to the injured list and age. One of the things I want to hear is just that when teams have the injuries with the all star break this close. At this point, it arrives a week from Sunday ten days from now with the ten day, I l and the roster Macintoshes that we see involved around this time of year you could see teams take the conservative approach and just shelve, the player, we're seeing emotions like Fram vol Dez of the Astros. They don't need these players roster wise. So they're gonna keep him off the roster. I think that's what's going to happen with resign. There's talk that l'amante Wade is going to get called up for him. But the twins have been great. And he's been a lot of the reason why any concerns here for him or the team. For the team. No. I mean like you said, teams are going to play a little more cautiously around the break, because they have that selects ability, and so, you know, if someone breaks bone, that's something where you go, okay. We gotta deal with it. If it oh, you know, I'm sore. I've been you know, it's a sprained take this as the perfect time to have an injury like this. I mean he never wanna get injured. But this is the perfect time to have an injury like this, you know, you, you take your ten days, and that ten days is actually, Secondly, you know, seventeen because of, of rest for the for the all-star break, then you know, it's only a benefit to the team player in terms of returning, you know, you don't you're not counting as down to. Oh, okay. It's been ten days. He's gotta come back, but we one or two more. We know we can just relax. And when he's ready. He hits the ground running. And, and I know I typically think of it in terms of the rotations that teams use this time in order to, to send younger players down. And still have options to the miners. We don't really think of it in terms of the injuries when the resort thing came up. That's the first thing that I thought of is. Yeah. You know, that's another case in which teams do take the conservative approach. We talk about this in September, which talk about it now. If players have injuries, and I think for fantasy we should take this approach of the conservative angle, and that means that in your leagues next week if you only play next week as the seven day period, and he SPN, I know that, that does extend to the three days or the three four days and three for most teams afterwards. If you play a seven day, next period, I'd probably take -servative approach with any injured player. I would another injured good. Good. Agreement. Absolutely, especially you know, if you watch the video this injury. I mean, I'm not gonna play doctor or you can place defined, but, you know, just basically it didn't who look that horrible. You know, we've seen far worse. And the fact that he was able to just walk down the the tunnel. Undertone power certainly makes me think that this not heck of a lot to see here another injury. And this is a frustrating one so AJ I want your reaction just to the player Giancarlo Stanton of the Yankees, who we we'd mentioned and it's like the minute, we mentioned this, it's almost a curse, we've mentioned in the preseason that he had been remarkably healthy over the previous two years. Heading into twenty nineteen twenty seventeen eighteen he had actually been remarkably healthy and we see this happen from time to time with players with injury reputations. Earlier in their career. Suddenly, they deal with some good health everyone gory and Kinzler and then later on in their career, they struggle with it again, stint. He's on the deal again or excuse me, the I L again with a niece brain my understanding is he injured this while sliding. Into third base. The other day it was a little unclear what happened with the injury initially, but the Enke's felt it was severe enough that with their overseas travel, the upcoming all star break. And the short schedule the week after that they wanted to take the conservative approach makes sense. But Stanton is this casting an injury prone label on him again? Well, you know, there's always that thing with when you have someone re-injuring, you know, that thing that already has been injured and causes miss time. And you wonder is this going to be something that's going to harangued him the rest of the season? We're gonna have a repeat of this again. And again, again, you know, Richhill blister syndrome, this, at least, you know, a lot of times when you get a better who swinging and tweaks muscles. Like, that's something that they're going to have to do repeatedly. I'm for more worried about that situation than this, where you could actually see the impact of this lied. And and we're you understand why there was injury. They're, you know, you, you saw it wasn't something that was just like, oh, it's going to be repetitive thing, people have to learn not just lies. I any more. I mean that's the cause of injuries. I think, but you don't have to. But I think this at least there's an understandable reason for this injury. And the reasons like. Cautioned much like we get this, a lot in football when you have people get injured and they have a long flight that they have to take you, you wonder like oh, maybe best lift, they don't have to take this like and maybe won't play this weekend because there's a long flight. I think this is a situation where there's going to be a long player a lot longer than than I guess it's not longer than if you're going to the west coast, west us. But still it, it, it's just like and so I, I would understand why they're going to put on the I L, and now's a good time for it. Not even risk sending them out there. What if he comes back from this, I, I'm not gonna go oh, gosh. He's injury prone. He's gonna get injured again, not based on this one. Not necessarily either. But I'm tempted to the only thing that really bugs me about this is that with the arrival event, went cannot Nacional New York that Stanton is gonna play the field a lot and he's going to be playing a position that he didn't awful lot early in his career in left field. And that just means we're -tunities. Basis this thing. So, like I said it, I, there's a reason for it wasn't like he was running, you know, racing the track down a fly ball and then pulled up that, that would concern me a lot more. I mean, I'm thinking in terms of if he's out there on the field, instead of being the D H, it's more to that. If somebody does hit it out there. He has another chance where he's moving around where something could happen. It's not a substantial amount. It's just that one thing I thought when he went to the Yankees is that he's going to have that luxury of the D H spot. And he just doesn't have it at this point. He's not gonna play it more often than not, he's going to be in the outfield a lot when he's healthy. So that, that does kind of raise the eyebrow for me. Bring back my worries. You know, and he is someone who has this label of being injury prone. But I mean helping blamed him for getting the face like that his fall. So, you know, I'm much more concerned with a guy like Aaron judge who again, if he gets injured when he swings really hard. And we'll that's what he does. So, you know, I probably more concerned about judge even those kittens, the one who injured swings pretty hard to though. I think it pretty and he that's where he gets injured though. Like, really? Yeah he has. As a matter of fact, I think I've checking for my research. I think he has gotten injured an unusually large amount running the basis. So we just need designated pinch-runner form. That's all there you go. Yeah. Yeah. Simple as that. All right. I'm gonna make you keep you busy here. Let's let's talk about the closures. Some big news there. So the big news is Jordan Hicks. And this happened a little bit after this show on Monday later in the afternoon we discovered. Well the cardinals had made the announcement that he does have a torn UC L, and he did undergo Tommy, John surgery. That did I believe happened on Wednesday. So he will miss presumably calendar year and I would have to imagine that he's not going to be a major factor even in twenty twenty and all, but we got I guess, I would call this clarity AJ on the closer situation because the GM talked up, John, Gant, as the possible fill in and then suddenly Martinez was announced vaguely by the team as their closer fill in for Jordan Hicks. And there've been talk lately that he was going to be kept in the bullpen anyway. So do you believe them on Martinez? And are you in Martinez where would you play some among closes? Okay. Yeah. That's a very maybe question in. Certainly using SBA to kind of read the minds there, I thought, that's where they would end up going anyway, as we discussed on Monday before the entry had Martinez at number twenty three, so now he's only going to go up there. But you know that that's within the realm of closer territory. You know, thirty closers he's always already in the he when he wasn't guaranteed to get. So I'm definitely higher Martinez like probably move them up into my top fifteen right now. And then see how it goes just because Gant is looming and could get sometime there. Actually, I honestly think that you can think of the Mets for this decision because with the whole Brody situation and the GM telling the manager, which pitchers Fitch and win and that making the news, I think perhaps the cardinal said, no, no, no, no. We're not a gentlemen's. You're telling them how to run the team you do what you want. And I think that possibly at least a factor in the UAE, we are going to be seeing Mr Martinez is closer here. That's an interesting point I kind of I was bothered. So it's, you know, it's a fair point 'cause it did bother me a little bit, but they didn't seem to see eye-to-eye on which direction they were going to go, I will say that I personally prefer them putting Martinez in there. Allowing Gant to pitch at any point key in the game between the sixth and ninth innings. So as long as this is going to be that, that sort of fluid closer situation where if you need Gannon, the ninth, even if it is at traditional closer situation, I'm fine with it, because guess, bend their best pitcher up to this point. And I don't wanna see him locked down to just one inning ninth inning stints. I think that would kind of lower value from a real baseball perspective. It's frustrating to often fantasy by the way, another guy with starter and reliever eligibility. So you might be able to exploit that as a matter of fact, Martinez does well, so. Yeah. I think this is a case, seriously Tristan where the this you're seeing the real life impact of fantasy on the game. I think because fantasy has really turned into this. Influence of okay, we need closers, and we need to find bowls. And I think managers organizations do feel a bit of pressure from the fan base, and I do think it impacts, how these pitchers are used alive as they're very few managers who are willing to buck, the trends, and I kind of wish more managers would but in terms of fantasy for the most part, we do get managers say this is my closer don't worry about it. I'll let you know, when they changed my mind it helps us in terms of at least clarity, we do I think that we're seeing more managers moving this direction. However, I agree with you that I do think a lot of these, these guys are still locked into the mindset of the one in. You mentioned the Mets the Mets themselves announcing the preseason Abe, Wendy was a one in enclosure period. Nothing more than that. So we're still still living back in one thousand nine hundred closer strategies. But well maybe that's more like nineteen ninety-five lease within. Ninety five ninety five to two thousand and five. Fair point. Let's go to the Braves bullpen Luke Jackson gets his twelve save on excuse me on Tuesday. But then during the day, who do they go to? They don't go to Anthony spores act. It's been one of their better relievers over the past month. Plus, they go to h Minter the guy who was supposed to be there closer at the beginning of the year through an inning of a third two strikeouts. Didn't give up any baserunners and he converted the save in this game. So where do you stand? On the Braves bullpen. I stand as far away as possible. I I'm not a huge fan of their bullpen, you know, Minter with someone that I was buying in on and it's not just because Jay, although certainly muck gonna poo poo myself AJ's there. But I thought he was going to be the guy in the he wasn't the guy. And so I like the fact that he's gotten back to the point where they can at least put him in that situation again. But again, it's baby steps, baby steps still think it's Jackson and it'll continue to be Jackson, sold such time as he has a few countries in the way. I've, I've been painted us an anti Jackson guy on the show, and I'm really not I think he's alright there. But I kinda agree with you. I, I just don't feel fully comfortable about the price. Bullpen don't injected. I mean, certainly I had the highest rankings amongst the Braves relievers. But you know, I still haven't number thirty 'cause I don't really play in to their entire situation. By the fact that, you know, you think it's going to be sore ended in being mentor, so. Yeah. I'm not a sports that guy are you? I don't hate him. I mean he certainly didn't do for the mass spec when he pitched for about what I thought he was going to do, but I I'm not anti, I just don't necessarily think he's going to be a guy with spires confidence his manager, and I think that's what you're looking for here. Yeah. He's, he's for me. He so very Rodney except with a little bit more of an injury. He he's got some great hot streaks and the rest is, well, just, just impression of him was that he type of guy who gets the job done when it really doesn't matter and doesn't get the job done when it does. And I'm not trying to denigrate his skill set. It just that was the perception, I got when he was with the met. And so it's hard to shake that perception. And that's what we're dealing with when it comes to managers and who gets what role it. It doesn't matter what three -ality is it's all perception. So. Kylo does tremendous job. But the, the note for the show, he comes up with a lot of great stats in addition of pressing all the buttons on this has been if like you're you've been begging me for weeks now to talk about this one particular pitchers, especially after Eric. And I totally trashed the Seattle Mariners bullpen. But keep putting. No. You have a row, a ruinous elitists, you keep putting them on here. And thankfully today, you learn to bribe me with a big plate of this, delicious chicken parm. I learned people learn things nicely done as I Chow down and really enjoy this right now out at least just got his fifth save a month. He's five for five and Kyle points out last seven appearances eight innings no-one runs. No hits to ox nine ks AJ. Are you in? I am in to the extent that this is a nice hot streak. And so I'm not in the sense that it's still Seattle. I don't necessarily think that there's gonna be a ton of opportunities compared to some of the other leaders out there and. Is there a chance that he does this for like another two three weeks, and they send him packing? I wouldn't be surprised. I guess I wouldn't either that anybody's really fair game there to, to this extent. I agree with you AJ that I think it is a great juice, the orange opportunity. But I'm not any further than that. I will tell you that it's not a good idea to orange juice with your chicken parm. Don't go. Don't go. Yeah. Good. I've got back up on that. Why got you covered yet. All right. Thanks for that. The final note here, the cubs are expected to activate Craig kimbrel today Thursday. So he will take over as the cubs closer. And if you wanna watch him, you know, there's an opportunity to do that.

I purchase. Okay. So before we get to the weekend schedule I'd like to ask your thoughts on to pitchers had some struggling outings of late. We'll start with Blake Snell, who had just a not so good outing just the other day against the twins. And granted tough tough match of course, but he gave up seven runs in three and a third innings eleven hits and just didn't look good at all. I saw him pitch against the Anki a couple of weeks ago where he didn't make it out of the I didn't look so good in that. He is a five one era this season after capturing the Cy Young any concerns. I have concerns. I mean I was probably one of the lowest people Blake sells the preseason rankings and people were like. Young vote. You can't look you know, year over year wins drives awards and, you know, I thought there would be some regression and wins. Certainly, you know, if you look at a pitcher year-over-year when there's this much of a difference in performance, if you can see something that really jumps out as different than that might be the problem. And he's trolling the curve ball way more than he did last year. Fifty one percent fastball. Last year twenty percent curveball this year. It's forty two and twenty eight that's different. And that might be just the issue, here is that he's just not approaching hitters the same way. And, and so he goes back to an approach that was more successful. I'm concerned. And in fact, your point about the curb, I've noticed that the pitch per pitch performance of it is not been as a -ffective and. Yeah, that could be some more exposure. But I wonder I should take a look at how. The spin on that pitches performing, so far I will say this defense that his underlying numbers suggest he's been extremely unlucky. I think a lot of people have thrown this out about the Babbit last year at a two forty one and it's regressive verily the other way to three fifty seven this season. His fifth is up just over a half point. That's not bad one from ninety five to three forty eight is experts three nineteen after being three sixteen last year. So there's been some bad luck involved in him, but some bad luck. But he's also, you know, he's throwing around balls the fly balls or going over the fence that much higher eight and some of the baseball, we understand that but it's still a seven percent rise in that I just think given that the pitch distribution. Is that different? I think there's something to be learned from that. And I think, you know, it might be bad luck, but it might be approach, and that would concern me. Always more than the luck and I agree that if approach has changed. We'll have to take a look at that and see if there's anything to the curve. So fair point that was the Tuesday game and then on Wednesday, as both the Yankees and the Red Sox were very quick to try and get to their flights to London. We'll get to that in a minute. The Red Sox had a day game against the White Sox at home at Fenway park in which Chris sale had a pretty rocky first inning of this game. Now he finished with not a complete train wreck of a pitching line, six innings six hits five earned runs, but it wasn't one of the best outings, for sale himself, and that Lind's the question to his season as a whole three eighty two we are aid to the stage and he was treated by most as a top starting pitcher. And it concerns. Not not anymore than I had the early on. I mean you know start the season with all those losses and everyone's like, well, what's wrong with them? You know giving giving time I it's a little bit of an outlier thing. Certainly he's much better than the own five star delay. The, the Airways from pretty good. Since April went away. I chalk it up to just a again. You know you throwing on a day game in the middle of the week. I think sometimes that can just hit a pitcher wrong. And it didn't look to me like he was pitching that badly. It just I think everything just went wrong. So I'm willing to just declare while again, you know, left probably a lot a lot of April. Yeah. I you know, and he did rebound mulligan was warranted. At that point. The velocity is down a little bit. It's still it's not severely down. It is down a little bit still as decent quality to it. Underlying. Here's here's a question for you today. You know about this because the ball is so jumpy off the vet couldn't. Light. Decline velocity actually help pitcher because he's not providing as much exit philosophy with what he's throwing. I just put that out. There is something to consider. That's a fair point. That is off. Yeah. You know, Jamie mortars coming back. We oh was such a Jamie Moyer fan that guy was great for my fantasy teams for years, by the way to your point here. Well, not actually, maybe it's not totally to your point. But the thing that always strikes me about the lefties Fenway park is giving up homers with the shorter fence and left field gets higher. But it's shorter to home runs. I tend to worry about being a problem. Right. He's have thirteen in the homers against sale this year. Yeah. I, I watched that first inning. And I was just like. He just it's just one of those days. It just it just it. I didn't watch even go while sales pitch in corley. It was just like one of those days, and since that was my gut instinct, I think to stick with. But. But, you know, sometimes you watch pitcher just go. He doesn't have it still stuck out, then. So you know it's not like he didn't have it. Yeah. I I don't blame you. I mean I felt like he just looked off in that one inning. And he recovered a little bit later on. So I'm not I'm not panicking either. He's still easily. You're up. It helps you know, you're probably gonna come right back around core, fifty three months on the happened this that hasn't helped them this year. That's the thing is and I, I hesitate to call this. Here's Jason Jacob degrom because degrom was amazing last season. And sale is not going to match that performance, but the Cole hamels years with the Phillies where they didn't support him. I mean he is this year's jinx in the win column, Chris, I agree. But the last three games have been seven run. So you know, he's been getting some support of late and it's kind of been commensurate with the drop in erase. So, you know, I think there is something to be said for not having to be that perfect that Cole hamels was going through that, where he knew if I gave if I give up a run in the first, I'm probably not getting it back. Yeah. Meanwhile, Chris sale is what he's three and seven I think, and water Rodriguez eight and four on the same team go figure. I don't explain the, the whole win loss record. Let's get to the weekend. Schedule. It's very busy weekend here. We'll start with the Thursday games which of course, began with the day games that were at one of five. So presumably, you're listening to this reading into the night games the ESPN plus game for Thursday is the Washington nationals at the Miami Marlins. And this is a Stephen Strasburg at Cindy L contra outing both kind of interesting pitchers in this matchup, Strasbourg, obviously, but I'll contras kind of underrated and fantasy. Okay, do, I mean, certainly I would think that especially given the fact that the dodgers are in Colorado, which makes Walker bueller a little less appealing than usual stress third is probably best option on the day here, especially such a sort schedule. You know, I I'm still playing matchup game with offense. I don't really have a lot about missing there. But in general, I do I do like mix and match with with Marlins pitchers. I think they don't necessarily have that standout guy. But like all the guys on any given day could definitely help your team win. The Marlins to me been pretty underrated. So, you know, I mean, I'm kind of enjoying while I can, then we'll we'll see how it plays out. I think they're going to be dealing with innings caps. At some point down the road Friday's games begin with a seventy five or between the Indians and the Orioles and this game is interesting to me, just because it's too pitchers returning from the injured list who might be fantasy relevant in one way or the other my cleanser for the Indians. And John means for the Orioles means have been one of the best under the radar rookies of the year and club Inter's guy that I just love your thoughts on either one, which starred either. How do you feel about the long term? I'm probably not starting this game. And I mean if I were gonna pick one to start. I think Levinger. However, it's interesting. I mean I was really high on means before the injury. And I, I currently have over rated just a little bit higher than clever even for the rest of the season. I like him. I like him a lot. I just started this week. I'm still had a means guy, I'm starting cleven during this game. If I have to I see your point about taking the conservative approach. I mean he did a setback most recently right after he came back from the injured list. But I still like clubs or for the second half if you can invest at any reasonable price. I'm certainly going to do that over the long haul the Mets and the Braves are at seven ten and only note here. Jacob degrom offices the Mets pitcher you're going to start him. Mike sirocco on the other side is questionable for this outing because of the four arm injury. He suffered. He was hit by a line drive in his most recent start. So he is questionable for this game. So if you're planning just keep an eye on the news involved in that the ESPN plus game is at eight o'clock in the Pittsburgh, Pirates at the Milwaukee Brewers. It's Chris Archer edgy yoli's show seen Archer. He's overrated AJ. He is overrated, you know, both of his pitchers are that worst, he'd and so if your idea of how much is doing here. Of course, Buehler's to was, like he's been carrying my staff. Archer should should be doing so much better. And yet, he never seems to be doing so much better. It is frustrating as all get out. You know, you start him if you if you have to. But if you don't have to you don't start them pay. You just can't trust them. It's, it's so frustrating he on Jin Ryu pitches for the dodgers, course. Field AJ mentioned with Walker. Bueller getting the Thursday assignment this is having the dodgers throw a lot of their ace's during the weekend series at chorus field. Clayton Kershaw will be starting the Saturday game. That is at course field there. And then in the Sunday game, it's Kenta Maeda, who's probably the least of the fantasy options, but still very good pitcher. How do you feel about any of these four for that series? And it concerns you starting them. What's your? Coach you know, they're so good, the certainly review sei-yung worthy candidate kershaw's Kirsch Kershaw. You know, I start the, their top fifteen pitchers all three of them, and I start them. I, I know it's cores, but the Rockies don't necessarily always go double digits. They don't always flip the Padres there. So definitely going to keep them in my lineup. Yeah. For daily, I consider somebody else in terms of savings and money and going elsewhere. But in the rodeo points leagues you stick with them agree. I think they're just too talented. And you go with talent even with the matchup at the ballpark looking a little bit tricky Saturday that begins the two game series between the Yankees and the Red Sox that is played in London, and for those who are unfamiliar with what the specs are going to be here as the Yankees and the Red Sox play overseas. They will get an additional player on the roster. They're carrying a couple of taxi players, so that will come into. Play a little bit the first game Saturday, which will be one ten eastern time on ten PM will be on FOX that his massive here, Tanaka and Rick Porcelli. Oh, the Sunday game is the one on ESPN that has a ten AM starting time. That is correct. It is a ten AM on Sunday. So make sure to tune in early. We get our breakfast are tea-and-crumpets and baseball at the Anki and the Red Sox take each other on the Yankees will be using the opener, which presumably means Chad green will lead to Nestor Cortez and this game. As the Red Sox throw Ed water Rodriguez, and AJ I bring the series, not, not just because of the fact, it's interesting. It's an overseas series. But how do you feel about the fatigue factor in these particular games? And the other is the ballpark, the ballpark has been described as a bit hitting friendly because of the dimensions very shallow centerfield any kind of advantages to game. Yeah. I think just in general pitchers are far more impacted by changes in routine. And so, yes. A one ten game on Saturday, doesn't sound like it's, it's that far out of the norm, but it's not one ten there. And so it, it, definitely, you know, the schedules are gonna be thrown off the just your body clocks from at all. I just don't necessarily trust any of the pitchers on putting year. My they line up this weekend. You've made a friend hitters on the other hand, I think they're gonna have vantage in this series. You know, honestly, I don't know much about the park, regardless say, we you never know how parts gonna play until until then. I think it's very sad that they're only gonna get two games and you're, you're subjected them to that Chad green, of course, exits rocks. That's rough. Probably yeah. It's, it's, it's almost like, when you know, they go to Wembley with the NFL and the preseason and type lineups go in there, like, I don't know. Crump. It's Nestor Cortez David Hale. And then what bangers mash afterwards just gonna throw everything that we should we going to be there, because that would be on. Oh, it's gonna be fun to watch. But I yeah I'm kind of frightened of any of the pitchers. You know, all used to knock if I have to I've not gonna feel great about it. I'd use Rodriguez second. I don't feel great about that one either. But. Rick portillo. Love how you have that drop handy. Kyle boy. All right. So Saturdays games. Pretty busy day, they're just a full slate going on, on Sunday. The other games we have going on. ESPN is going to have several games. In addition, that one in the morning, we have the ESPN plus game two pm that is the Minnesota Twins at the Chicago White Sox. Cal Gibson G Lido. He's awesome. Yeah. They'll be they'll be no darkness there. Lucas? Exactly. That's my point. Yes. Of course. Dear late. All all right. The night game on ESPN. We will. Yes, indeed have Sunday night baseball. This one will be the Atlanta Braves at the New York Mets. That's right. The New York baseball teams have taken ESPN over on Sunday and max freed will face Noah Syndergaard in his return from the I L you're starting him. Me personally. No. Just because I just something I do. And I don't I don't ever trust the Mets and their their physical health. I just I. Totally gun shy there. And quite frankly, even if he takes, you know, pitches, six innings and gives to runs. I don't think they're gonna Mark seven and eight like they normally do. And you know, we know how bad the Mets bullpen is. And how how it's been managed to. It's oh it's been rough times. I know I feel like Syndergaard on the raw talent. I would presumably start him but I think you're onto something here that it's it's a little scary. The Braves that offense. Scary. Just a little heads up note finally, before we get to your questions that on Monday aware for those weekly leagues. There isn't early game because of candidate the Toronto Blue Jays are finishing up their series against the royals day with a one. Oh, seven PM eastern star time. So just be aware of it as we head into Monday. We'll have Monday's show getting you all set up. But just get along. We had the Canadian match at them on the song on this podcast like where we could go Herrick was not thrilled. I wonder why he's off taking a little rest time. Bad. He's gonna come back recharge and fighting on Monday cow. If we're getting into the, the fun and silly stuff. You know what we gotta we gotta get some music. Let's get to the questions. You can't wait for Monday. I actually like Monday, I don't do well with free time in weekends are free time. So I like the structure of a week. Monday to find Eric on Canada. Have nothing wrong with that. So the we insert your BoomTown rats reference here. So so the week begins for you on Monday. I know we have this calendar thing, especially on my little, like hell. I it's like the start your week on Sunday start on a Monday weeks. Don't stop, I would generally say a Monday as the beginning of a week, just because that's how it was growing up. We've helped people. Oh, yeah. That's huge. Big time. Calendar companies are gonna be sponsoring this podcast next year. So stay tuned for that. And now, we'll talk about the Tyler chat would segment. Yeah. He's going to be pitching again, so we can get into that. But you could say that if he pitches between now and Monday, kind of a fluid situation. I do believe he does trajectory. But you know they, they I thought they announced it's a six man rotation. Love it love it. Okay. So now that we know what one of those podcasts, let's hope people get to Monday, Ben wants to know if you have any concerns over Luiz castio seventeen walks over twenty one point two June innings. Do I have concerns? I little bit. I don't like when I see the control numbers decline in the way that they did the other thing that bugs me and I just published the July only July July look ahead forecast or using the ratings and even though we don't have the projected rotations for that month. I can kind of bundle up all the hitting matchups and kind of projected ahead for pitchers. So in Casillas case, the reds, they have one of the ten where schedules in the month. It's a head. So it's a little alarming from that aspect. Anything else I think is overeating. Point out that he is way way while when there's no one on base. He's been averaging five point nine eight walks per nine with no one on base compared to three point four six with men on base, which is more in line with his career numbers. I think there might be a focus issue here with him. And again, when I think it's a head case thing that, that, that really does concern me. Already Caleb, once your thoughts on scooter Ginette the rest of the way, would you move on from guy like Lorenzo Cain in favor of Jeanette, redraft leaks? So Janette in terms of the update my understanding is he could return this weekend. He's on his rehab assignment and AAA I haven't been checking what the numbers are on the rehab stint, but it was a lengthy absence. I worried about the playing time where exactly he's going to fit in Derek Dietrich has stepped up as a pretty useful guy to throw into the lineup against righties at time. So I don't see Ginette playing every single day. That's bothersome. I feel like I can't cut cane, I get with the poor start to the season where you might be thinking this way. I think that's I think it's a foolish move. On that. I think just until you sail you don't know. And it it's not something I'm willing to stake, my second half of the year on just yet. Easy enough. Michael wants to know without a time on Pablo Lopez. If you're cutting ties in the standard shallow, ESPN, leak I almost. Well, it wasn't the standard. Shallow one. This is the office late which jeez. I think it's fourteen teams this year, and it's six bench with no, no. I l spots. So it's a little bit larger. It's affecting me like ours with the three and one except with two extra spots, and I've been thinking about cutting Lopez there just because I I've got so many guys on the injured list. I mean generally my bench the spots are just guys on the injured list. I did not hear any update on him. I heard they expected to be somewhat short of a stint, but they need to keep his innings and check, so they have no reason to rush him. And I've seen nothing since the R I results came in which just show the strain. So I feel like it's probably a month. And if you need to move on. I'm okay with that, especially when we're talking about someone. This is the second shoul shoulder strain in, in two years. And so. They're going to be very extra cautious. And, you know, they've got a lot of other options. So there's no reason to, to rush back. I think if you need to cut, if you don't have the I L spot, and send them packing already joking comes in with more of a strategic question than anything. He wants to know if you're looking for players to acquire in the second half what percentage do you put into their first-half versus their previous resume coming into the season. Good strategic question, I would say that, when I building a quick, basic projections system, I take three years, and I wait the most recent one roughly fifty percent of that. So I would probably look to the first half to be nearly fifty percent of my weight. But this is not cut and dry for everybody. And when I say, I do a rough projection I go in there, and then I manually make some tweaks to each and every one and I pull in things like you know, as I mentioned with Eric the other day, the minor league equivalences for guys who hadn't been in the majors, the whole time I account for whether a player's injury had an issue with performance. So, don't you say, okay? Well, that means Tommy, let's still is first half is worth fifty percent. Stella could be. Goodness. Who am I forget yonder Alonzo? He could be where he regresses to the point is still useful. But it's not the story wasn't that first half. Yeah. I think it's a process. I you know if you if you like the projection of a player at the beginning of the year when you're drafting and you know, you're fully confident that whatever method you used to generate that projection for the full year is right? You can't just throw it out. Completely now and say that. Well, you know, I protected them for twenty home runs. And he's got only two so he's gonna get eighteen the second you can't do that. But you can't necessarily he'll get the second half in terms of, you know, matching that half season output, I get the balancing act and you don't just say, well, you know, Jose Ramirez, a can't possibly expect him to bet anything more than two ten because he's sunk up the joint in the first half. But, you know, you also shouldn't necessarily say, we'll just gonna hit fifty you know it. You have to balance those things, and you learn overtime where that line is returned through the hash Browns, like we've got a flight to London. Catch. How about that? Well, we got one last one here drew wants to wants you to update your sei-yung MVP and World Series winners based on what we've seen in the first half of the season. Oh, goodness. I saw this. I saw that, that this has been asked. I think late last night and, you know, I realized I should have looked at just really hoping I wouldn't pick it. No, I that's one of those ones where I see it. And I think, oh, I got a look that up and then the morning comes and something else comes up, and I don't think about it, Cody Bellinger. I mean it's Cody Bellinger, Christian yelich. What else can I say? Well, you know, I'll, I'll bet you trust in the answers here. If you wanna, you know, go for think about it a little more, but I would definitely I would go yelich right now. I would go with Ryu as my young winner in the NFL it now for AL I think, just based on the buzz and and, you know, we've been talking about so much. I think you gotta get Lucas Julieta the not here. And for Allen, VP, ah mister, DJ make you. I mean he's the here. Oh, you're not on the LeMay huband wagon r you. It's not necessarily best player. It's who why are they in first place right now? It's because of the Mayhew because everybody else's been injured. Voters for that be are not necessarily picking the best player picking the one that the, you know, got the buzz and in, I'm supporting that we'll bring I'm gonna go dodgers over twins right now. But, you know, things can change. I can't even begin to make I see your point on LeMay. Hugh, I've heard this argument made he's not an empty. I hate voting for VP this way. Trout. It's trout. Ghetto fans the MVP because we don't more that it's not a real thing. These are actual tangible awards. I think he's got the best shot right now. They voted today he would win. I, I, I can't do I wouldn't vote for him. I think it's the best player, you know. I just I do think it's the best player. I you know, I vote for Alex bregman before that vote for detail Mayhew, I would have been injuries around him in Houston speaking of which my World Series, much is, it's lame to go back to a World Series. We already saw recently I'm going to ask her over dodgers lame if it's right Vasser over dodgers. The Astros and the dodgers have if healthy amazing teams. Pitching staff. I I just don't see anyone beating the dodgers series right now. Obviously things can change with injuries. But yeah, I. Yeah. Seven game series tree? It's the team balance for both. It's really hard to go against teams. I, I love what the Enke's are doing lately, though. That great it. Silence. We love the way how painful. Oh I never Yankee for him. VP. You gotta sign off on all the Yankees are awesome. There's no problems here James Paxton isn't in any sort of slump. No J hap- isn't giving up too many homers. No. It's not happening paxton's got the Canadian thing going for him. Yes. Good candidate Canada day theme. There. All right. So that wraps it for the hash Browns, correct? We're good. All right. A couple of notes here we should bring. Bob Lee his, his been an extraordinary legacy of forty years with the SPN, and we congratulate him on his retirement. The other is congratulations to one of our own family here field Yates on his recent wedding and Kyle gotta ask. I hear I hear filthy rumors here that we might have some, some information on this podcast. We did offense you focus football podcast yesterday. It's available right now. You know, it's like twenty minutes of good football talking, like forty five on Yates, wedding, festivities and shenanigans. It was a good. Listen. They had a great time.

Announcements to make early next week. So we'll, we'll take care of that. Then by early August will be five days a week and carrying you through the winter. Great look forward to feel about teenagers getting married. Yes. Yes. I'm sure I'm sure there's no jokes like that on that podcast zero. Not a one. No. But I'm twenty five by the way just not not a teenager here. I've come being realistic. Right. Just be very clear. Right. That will do it for today's show.

Just Wild Wednesdays really boring but now it's cool Do me favor to start the show at five forty two. Yes. Shut Your Eyes for one second. We're not gonNA punk you or punch you in the face just want you to shut your eyes and being serious. So you can feel this ready. Get back underway torment loses the. Gimmick. right-back. Joe. Housing over it's seven oh on the power. is on the. It wasn't as exciting as having the lead. But. It was pretty damn exciting. Better. This. Accident now here's call going. Ahead Yeah. That's in the back of neck down that means. We had the lead. We had the lead I'm truly never thought we would score. So I like the first one better but I understand the fact that we technically had a lead onto the best players in the world is something you and I can have in the back of our half for the rest of our. People while seconds or whatever it might have been but we had it well, I, I would say the first one definitely was most surprising right? Because we didn't expect. We're GONNA score that at all right but man have the lead those guys are world champions. Yeah. But again, I I broke down yesterday. If you watched that replay of game three, they've both we're going for boosts. Which means I just think they weren't communicating make definitely return one of the score I thought they maxed out the goals they were scoring as fast as they possibly it was. But on that one, I don't think they both go for boost like that in a championship game communication would have been better because they parted the Red Sea not to give me a goal just both. At, the same time and I had to wide open lane and just didn't blow it. Yeah. Leg I would've? Maybe. Yeah. Well in my well, my favorite goal was I. don't remember which one it was that scored at but was when they're like in the air and you went up to save it and they'd like just let go we said the same thing that was. That was control we have to guess because there's so much. So I, guessed right and went all the way up met him and. They're. Just. Like just incredible you, you're a thirty second break down what it feels like to play those guys. Yeah Right. It was humbling like. But especially because usually like when we play all right, I messed up a good half a dozen times where I probably should have scored a goal or I could have made a save I think it'd happened like once where I had like I had a straight on shot at a ball that was coming at our net and I- whiffed once other than that I just I wasn't even is some great views rate. They got football camp otherwise miss the whole game man I was replace. Incredible great torment and Gimme what they were doing in the air, and then just like you know upside down, twisting spinning, catching with her back tires to go front tires, their hood or just the one where they just kind of gently carried it in the hallway or the last goal that they or they just kept it up. Just incredible. Yeah. Why that was a lot of fun. Thank you permanent and given. Yeah. Yes superfund it was fun to watch. Perish. What's up anybody? Do those things on you excuse me coming. You know when they're giving you a massage the Kathy all yeah. Did it bruise you? The worst is when like I've done that both my shoulder my knee after surgeries where they do the break-up scar tissue exactly. Yeah. It's like, yeah you should see my back right now i. Get it yet the. Yeah exactly, I've been getting massage because I've been having some issues with my shoulders you know and. Man They're breaking. He said the scar tissues and the knots and stuff in there and she told me to take about three sessions and this place that I go to I don't mind saying uses cultivated CBD as part of the deal. So they're actually massaging CBD and the new skin and she asked if I wanted to try cupping because she said, she thought that it would speed the recovery of and we try to yesterday it feels so good but my back looks horrible right I can't believe how bruised I am right now and I only barely see it in the back. Yes. I've done it before it feels good. Believe Purple Yeah Yeah you look like the kid in the crash test dummies video. Long. Now that. You go to school. Yeah. It's it's sweet man. Going to. Take. His Shirt off Oh. My. Neck. Oh, my God. On. Zach take you. See this is why needs my help during the show and needs this close? Oh yeah, it's not as bad as I thought. I thought it is a couple of. Look like the. Purple Elephant from Dumbo or something. Yeah. It helps a ton. I've had it done a few times. It's great. Usually what hurts the most helps you free awesome. Yeah. But Man I'll tell you what? The difference after two visits you gotTa Take Care of yourself. Corey. To me. On the one that was in the Er a great point. Yeah.

Just, having that assurance that no matter what as long as we were there for Anson, that someone would be there to take care of us. took. So much weight off our shoulders how can you help go to fisherhouse dot org the fan? All right. Good Morning. It is six am on the dot. August nineteenth. It's Wednesday marked parishes I mark. High Modest again Mario. Mark coming a little bit later as well plus the decades try twenty minutes from now outweighs. Mart. took. Off. What's wrong with mark? He's cranky today. In an girl Tumblr I guess God guys. Sports release, we can get it over with. We can have a dual the decades deep dive. Yes. Hold on. I'm almost ready how the hair is. Time now for front page sports presented by Ryan to see. Criminal Defense. Hey. Thanks Ryan Criminal Defense. Be Twins beat the drunken S- Ghani's four three in twelve innings but the main story was that they blew a three zip lead. After Kenta my eight, a No hitter into the ninth. Pretty. Sweet right. I watched all of it he. He's so good and they got him basically as a throwaway for Bruce Star. When they made that trade, and then all those other things happen with Boston and the dodgers unbeliev man he was done he was. Filthy the whole game until that last inning no hitter into the ninth. He also said a twins record by having eight consecutive strikeouts the major league records ten. Let's impressive. Ericsson's no hitter back in the you've seen one live it. That's how it will kidding. Yeah. It was like five hundred of us the Dome Yeah. Oh. Yeah. The Path platformers is awesome. So he finished with twelve strike as strikeouts in one hundred and fifteen pitches. The one fifteen is the most by any pitcher in baseball so far this season. Anyway. Thinning. Polanco knocked in boxing. That was the game winner. So they ended up beating drunken. Scott anyway forty-three, the twins are now up to sixteen eight they eleven into at home. Yeah. There was it was fun to watch and I think a lot of people in the ninth inning were wondering how are they going to celebrate a p throws a no hitter you can't Bob in. It would have been interesting to see what they did because a socially distant. Yeah. Mob Throw Gum at him for six feet away Gama. Game to Janis Tonight at seven ten. He's GonNa try throw a no hitter that. Yesterday we were talking about the NBA playoffs and I'll. Bet. Court Lakers clippers. The Lakers in the bucks. Yeah. And I took everybody else. I'm off to a good story because the bucks and the Lakers both lost but. Before we get to the Lakers and the fact that they lost the blazers the magic we talked about yesterday to win the series are thirty, two one. Yeah, right. The bucks were minus fifteen thousand to win the series they lost by twelve in game one, the magic in one twenty to one ten over the bucks. With thirty five points in fourteen boards. They got a long way to go if you're a thirty to one underdog and you win game one, there's no there's no home in Rhode Right Parish Yeah so if you can do it in the bubble. It's not like you go about who Milwaukee and find a way to win game two. You're GONNA, play the same the same guys you can do it again. Maybe I don't. Want to say this is so obvious in hindsight because it's not hindsight but. Shouldn't we have guessed that weird things we're going to happen. We've seen it in hot already right? We should've guessed in the NBA. Let's just bet heavy on the long shots and hope a couple of them head. I'm not I. Don't think the magic are going to hang on and beat the box but. Twelve point winning game one is a thirty two one shot a lot of its belief you believe you can beat them. But Harry. Yeah thank you. You're welcome grade-point by the way but as you know most of the time, the more talented team win. Yeah. In the long run, it's a seven game series. It's like one game isn't much more often than not and that's typical year obviously hockey 'cause I don't know damn thing about basketball but I it's one game like who cares move and on a fluke yes. I. IF ANYTHING IT'S A. Wake up call to the better team like, Hey, okay I guess we gotta these guys seriously the one that might not be a fluke though as the other one, the Blazers one, hundred, ninety, three over the Lakers Damian Lillard continues to be on a bubble tear thirty four points Lebron James did have an unbelievable triple double twenty three points seventeen board sixteen assists but I believe he's lost something like five straight playoff games and I this morning when I was putting my stuff together that the Lakers I think it was the worst three point three point shooting team left in the playoffs and they were like five of twenty nine or something from last night in that killed him. He won one, thirteen one. Oh, one over the Pacers Butler twenty eight points do you ever see Like when the wolves are in the playoffs which never ever happened. Rosie. Laugh. When I read a score of the he one, one, thirteen, one on one of the Pacers that must be with the rest of the country feels like about every Minnesota series, right? Neither one of those two teams matters. They're just they're battling. It's cute Jimmy. Right but I mean what a waste of time. Houston one, twenty, three, and one, zero eight over the thunderheart and thirty seven points and eleven boards usually. He's so good. God. Scores, scores every time he goes down the Court Vegas moving on. Mark. Perish, they win the series four one over. Chicago they won the game four to three. Yeah I. Wonder how Chicago's feeling paying half Robin, lenders, Contract Trading Vegas, watching him, beat them in the playoffs those the same point. I. Was GonNA. Make sure it was the caps. beat the the islanders three two to stay alive your former squad was going for the sweep, but they still lead that series. Now it's three to one the caps still alive. It's not surprising. You. You see that a lot where teams quote three rip The team that's up obviously in the series kind of takes a breath in and well nobody wants swept. It's just flat out embarrassing getting swept I don't. Goals he finally woke up Yep stars to one over the flames. Your former squad Dallas leads three games to two, and I liked that after going down to nothing in this series coming back three to I, got I got a chance at having four teams go on here. Yeah. The field would be great I would like that from boy. Who made that bad who's on WHO's going on? I Did Yeah. Yeah. So sauce. You have fifty with Hawk and you fifty Zak yeah. And and you have perished teams or non perishable. Team and I. I had no idea that Tampa that Paris. Point for Tampa probably wouldn't have done the bet. I don't know why Tampa's aren't they the best team. Yeah. They're. They're the most skilled team I Boston need look at Boston but them losing to Rask. In taking off. Goal tender took earlier. Did you hawk? Flyers. Canadians leads that series three games to one. Phillies planned incredible. They're they're Corey Hart the goaltender they're young goaltender is just outdueling Jerry. Price. Them they were yes and. Didn't he did the drunken Scotties the brewers have a guy in Corey Hart and this is the song always play. He was like right fielder. He have to. Discern intercessory. Still say one of the best it's ever that Will Ferrell Saturday night live scary comes into the courtroom in a wheelchair and the judge asks what happened. Because he just playing corey. Hart. Were car rats. Good suburban you. Want my sunglasses at night. I mean. They made a whole skit out of that one no no it was like I think it was a bunch of one hit wonders. All right that were in trial or on trial for something I don't remember the premise I just remember that the funniest moment in the sketch was, when will it gets wheeled in? He's funny. Super Funny. You'RE GONNA do do all the decades when. We do the keyword I share Zach six. Yeah that's all right. All right.

MEANS WE HAVE Witnessed History Ladies and gentlemen in the door of the decades. Nineteen eighty-five clean sweep tend to nothing defeat perhaps the greatest gear her pop music. In the history of humanity ever nineteen eighty-five touched by hall and Oates Beats Anything from the nine hundred ninety. S Te. Market down power trip of the decades on twitter. Which I'm. Momentarily. Today. It happened in one, thousand, nine, hundred, five. Forever being -Sconsin Histories. The greatest here in pop music history until we find another could defeat it. and. To, stay in the eighties the problem I know. Yeah. And we could do that by the way. There's no. Rule that says it has to be ten years apart. Kind of the point of the decades right it's eighty nine and ninety S. Different decades. That'd be a good list. It's true in tech neutron. If, we ever get another of the decades dominated ten nothing run. We're going to I don't care. WHAT YEAR IS WE'RE GONNA put it up against nineteen five. That's a hell of a year dominant. We can do like in a Dual. The decades major we take all like the top song of nineteen, eighty, three, eighty, nine, and ninety, thousand, ninety, nine. Crazy it's a good bit. Greasy. You'd be crazy now probably being the lady version seventy. Stays, in power trip, history. Yeah be some of the listeners greatest days of their lives. TVD brings you what really. Scores. World of sports and then cripple change your life was something else doric. It was a historic last night for the twins when Kent Majeida brought a no hitter into the ninth. And then lost it. But the twins almost lost the game they blew a three nothing lead. So it went to extra innings, they won four three over the drunken sky knees in twelve innings. Thanks to a Polanco. Fielder's choice writing knocked in Buxton in the twelve. So the twins do win in a weird way. They're sixteen in a what really matters. Though is this banging your head against the wall for one hour burns one hundred, fifty calories. WHO The hell was the test dummy on that one. Most of the listeners from sauce told story. Genius Corey. The Blazers, beat the Lakers in game one of their playoff series. The Blazers are the Lakers are the one seed, but they want one, hundred, ninety, three Lillard with thirty four points Lebron triple double. What really matters is this the oldest your mom joke was discovered on a thirty five, hundred year old Babylonian tablet. Iran? Tablet has so since been lost. But text remains preserved. The built I don't have it on here. I should but I don't know why it's not on here. Yeah I. Think they put it on here. The tablet is probably wherever my wife's credit card currently is. Somebody to get defined it. Why. Would you need it right? Get around to it. And who cares. Cancel all of. Those are all on auto pay right it's not like to go spend most of my day changing everything. Big Deal who cares if it's three miles per somewhere? Yeah. The magic are the eighth seed and they upset the one seat as well. One Twenty to one ten they beat the drunken S-. Ghani's boost switch with thirty five point. So the eighth over the ones so far have a one nothing lead in the NBA playoffs and I know the AIDS versus the ones in the NHL Marker. That's not insurmountable. Right? We win once in a while. Yeah. It's extremely rare in the NBA. It's only happened like two or three times ever really sauce that's it. It's something I. Didn't. Sonics Alice do it didn't Dallas at one point be don't want something like that. But yeah, it's it's. Kind of boring in my mind I, I liked the upsets, Cinderella story, the tournament, the Greatest Tournament Zach your hands out. So get ninety four the nuggets gets over the Sonics Ninety nine knick's over the heat and two thousand, seven the warriors over the Mavericks. Yeah. Three Times up twenty eleven that grizzlies over the Spurs case. So four. Times over the Bulls not. Oh I don't remember that one. Still Very few but so far we to with a one nothing lead. What really matters though is this. I'm taking no right now because. I had no idea until right now that. My poor wife has Jira Phobia Oh what now? Sarah Phobia she going to be okay. I don't know. It's an irrational fear of fun and happiness. What are the symptoms? You don't like fun or happiness. Sadness. Poor, serene. Here that. No. Get. Away. From the fun you have. You've never said that. That happiness out of my face. Casinos bad. I've been a rational fear of going to those concerts. The I love. Ya. Rational fear of the target bill. Yeah that's not irrational. The heat one, thirteen, one, one over the Pacers Butler twenty, eight points. What really matters though is this during your lifetime you'll produce enough saliva to fill two swimming pools. Gusting that's so gross. Why do we have to figure that one out? That's cool. Do That wasp. Houston one twenty, three, one, zero, eight over the thunder thirty, seven points Houston leads that series one, game two, zero. What Really Matters Is this if Pinocchio said, my nose will grow now it would cause a paradox. Because, it won't which means he's lying. Right But then if he's if he if it starts to grow, then that means he was telling the truth. Right. Got It that's fascinating. Man. As, we talked about AIDS never heard that. That's awesome. Terrified to think about that for way too long it's pretty good. Way Too long my nose will grow now. That's fascinating. Is that well, he was smoking cigars.

I would I remembered that I had heard a spot on a podcast saying that if you could go on this website and buy a piece of land in Scotland? And if you bought this piece of land, you would become a lord like literally it'd be Lower Fischel lawers for hockey. And you would own this piece of land. And you would get a certificate saying you have to be referred to as Lord Chris Hockey. sweetser to be a lady as well. If you'd like, it's something like. This hockey is what you're saying. Just a couple of square fee right could buy one the square foot. For Ninety nine dollars right. But why wouldn't you by five scripted when it's only two hundred, ninety, nine dollars? The. Most lay down two hundred. And Ninety nine dollars. For a handful of square feet in Scotland just so he can be. Diverse right. Go, visit my my spot in.

All right. He's GonNa. Go. Through the motions, he's not actually going to do. This is just a good bit to say on the Redid it. Yeah. Well. Here's a little behind the curtain on the power to wanting to he did it. Oh Yeah, and the reason why I know he did it is about nine fifteen when we were recording the actor Party podcast, he showed us the email. He got from his wife who had seen it pop up already on their bank statement or bank website or whatever which by the way. That's that's crazier creepy as hell at nine fifteen, she's already monitoring your spending. Thing is rolled out of bed in the morning. The morning yourself a glass of wine and said, I got to start looking at what's. That one. Nine fifteen she sends an email with a bout. Try Not to exaggerate fifteen question marks. That was the entire reply email. Just question marks like is this just goes Oh, and he showed us that and that's the rest of the story that I know. So what is the rest of the story? Well, I said in response. Most. You emailed back right away. I said. Do as as as dip my toe in the water hot. It was. Corey, made me do it for the show. Expensive dip the tone. And her response was going to be something like. Or something mean and her response was. then. Corey can pay for. which I am not going. Did. You go from that. So when I get home. Just to clarify, did you purchase the the five feet for five hundred dollars or whatever? Ninety Ninety nine? Purchase you could put a up our she should have been just as bad for ninety nine dollars. The honest even that's preposterous but he went the full three hundred. A. Of Money I, love it and it's the same Old Lord. Lord and go I promise you own the land maniacs I will stand on that damn piece of land one of these days. I will I'm urinate. There might be there at my number three on that thing. Without having to be. told us you went there. So anyway. So what happens when you got home? I said. She goes. I thought it was a scam I literally thought somebody had broken into our account and done that. But you really. But that like Oh. Yeah. Is Good bid and I wanted on I wanna be referred to as Lord Christopher. Sh. She. Didn't think is funny didn't react. She said something about college funds or. Something like that. Which I replied. Oh, boy oh please. Tell me that's her. Good morning powered your morning show. Hey Corey, how's it going? Great. Zach Zach. The Fan and wakes and Julia's WanNa. PUT A. Text the keyword love that is love to make that money I'm sorry much. Two Hundred Santa Tax generates. I'll also. Okay so anyway. Now what I wanted to say. It'd been her. was. Maybe. Nine fifteen oh boy you just get up. I wanted to say. Four bottles of wine. What I said was. How that go I say it pitifully enough that it. You know it s return it. She. Did ask that. Well see Harris seat I said the same thing. Could come. We were walking out of the. podcast just we realized that the purchase had actually been made, and that Kim was upset I said the exact same thing to sauce. I said, if I found out that Angie spent three hundred dollars to be lady Angie cove of Scotland and go are you out of your GD mind in my first reaction would have been we're finding a way to cancel that charge. You're not paying three hundred dollars. I. Land in Scotland that were never gonNA see. I'm going to stand there. Can you imagine the stories of spending hockey and Angie? Would have if they were married I'm definitely. Not The power of theories that if my wife and hockey. And we if we wife swapped if it was Kim in me and Angie and Chris. Kim and I would be retired on a beach and Angie, and Chris would be basically doing handy's. Just. Trying to get by. This. Very similar. Broke and homeless within six months in came and I would have been retired about seven years ago. Because they. Just can't stop like piece his property in Scotland. Right I didn't I think I saw yesterday. That's what target had something like their largest quarter jump in company. You're. Welcome. You're welcome. Back it's coming from that Plymouth. Location. Which? Wouldn't even put my game in her guiding stores. I didn't even imagine the things they would spend money on have done. You guys a favor for the last ten years. Anyway. So from now on officially Marnie, you have to call him Lord Christopher Hockey Look. A kilt. Now, yet you when he travels to his homeland. Goes on Amazon and buys one. Idea she texted you. Know. No A. A Nigerian prince just died and Tell me. The whole bunch of money he just spent a hundred dollars in flowers. But they may more ashes. that. Five foot spot land and what is hockey always say they make it long run I'll go get more if I needed care by ten feet. Yeah signs in crazy. This is silly. Buy Your credit. Card and Chris has a plot of land and Scott Camera. I, do big day both. Here, we go. Coronavirus deaths in Minnesota hospital patients are going down. A new report from the State Department of Health says twelve percent of the over forty three, hundred corona virus patients died in July that's compared to fifteen percent back in May department says the improved trend is do better treatments for the virus. So there's a little. Over. The BLOOMINGTON Minnesota School district will start school year with online learning school board voted Monday to move away from its original hybrid learning plan due to staffing issues. A different learning policy could be put in place as coronavirus conditions change. That is definitely the the underreported angle of this right is. Everybody's talking about parents and being lean comfortable sending their kids to school but you have to have teachers that are also comfortable going to school. So the hybrid thing I think is Thing that makes a lot of teachers nervous. And if you get a teacher that's in that age range where they're at risk or higher risk, I can't blame them for being a little gun shy. So Lord. Hockey that. Bloomington do you interpret that as grade school middle school high school across the board I would assume. So first of all, what you just did made the two hundred, ninety, nine dollars worth. Yeah. It's second of all It's the entire school district. That's right. That's right. Howard district went. Like our daughter who is going into fifth grade finally, Final Year of element is in person four days a week. We are in carbon your days a week What's the other? Son is in middle school. He is in person two days a week and the high schoolers are total distance learning everyday. That's a large swing from four days out in person to know days or remember a game. That press conference a couple of weeks ago that what he was saying and what the the other people that talk that they were saying was brand new to me that he said he said. That, they're learning kids. Are Much, less likely to transmit it, and that teenage kids essentially transmitted at the same rate as adults. was probably why they based they are. Saying. Okay. These little kids, little grade schoolers. We're going to put them in school. It's harder for them to toss it back and forth but the team is probably going to spread it. So that makes sense I get it I don't understand that but I'm not a scientist and we have a site. Calendar. They've scheduled a question and answer zoom kind of thing with our school district might even be tonight yet is tonight. So as I sit here right now I can't tell you I. Don't know for sure when I go to school or how much have no idea. Really Yeah and it's two weeks away three weeks ago morning when you said four days in person, the other day is distance learning. Are they only doing five days a week but it's distance learning and plans day. So that kind of makes sense that kids go Monday and Tuesday and. The deep cleaning day of the school. And then the kids go back Thursday and Friday oh Gotcha. With the parish plan you guys doing you know yet I got the slightest. Nikki respond to emails. Sure Right. I feel. It's some form of hybrid That's as much as the kids feel about that or do you know yet? Do they care to talk to them? Yeah. A little bit right. Between hockey periods. Naked. Woman.

For about the first fifteen years of my life, right? I mean I think Jack are bringing some over but I can't think of the last time I didn't have chocolate milk and my refrigerator right galt in defensive saucers leaning towards him telling the truth he blows my mind is. I think it's so unique for a fat kid to not like chocolate milk kidding that. Kind of. Putting. Everything under the Sun. Don't know how that one slipped through the cracks I. Think he's regretting missing it now. I would have I. Regret clarification. You've had chocolate milkshakes. Probably, not well, wait a minute. Yeah. We was on that by the way that doesn't that's not the same thing as chocolate milk. Shakes wars if there's a chocolate shake, there's a vanilla option there's a strawberry option, but at some point you've tried to talk. Dairy. Queen. Never ate no off. What would you marry all? Probably Strawberry. Chocolate I was just I. Don't know. It's weird because I was a huge ever had neopolitan ice cream. You just have a strawberry vanilla through either third out may know. was.

Come from brown cows but I heard most deprived as a kid what percentage of the the country believes that again remember we did that number. Amount is higher zero. Off. Number. Twelve percent. Hide News. presented. Live. The Camden Chancellor tour continues yesterday he jumped so high what happened and the angle of the photo was so significant, it looked like he jumped fifteen feet over. Here's Michael Jordan ruler. Yeah I mean that Dude I'm excited. Inside I'm allowed to excited. Right. Thank you log. That was an amazing football player I. don't care if it's in practice that was a great play from that camera angle I I'll tell you this I actually think it's unfair to him. What waiter is doing to them there to your point you said it yesterday Rosie. We're propping this guy up so much. He's done nothing with our about practice. Yeah we're talking about. So he now everybody's going to expect so much from him when he's a rookie, it's a lot to ask. Position is so difficult to break in without any preseason games in running smack into Aaron Rodgers and I experience in the National Football League, at game speed not practice speed and it's a whole different animal and look at that's that's not to knock the kid Let's hope he's really good They need him desperately because a revamped their entire defensive backfield. I, it's the difficulty with. Social media and not having exposure really to what's going on Viking practice because not having exhibition games is that it's really just. A photo here, a video clip here Anand article there, and that's it. That's all you get from the guy and and camp dancers become kind of a you know a hot name right now and that's Hockey Right I. It's. It's fine. You WanNa get extended something. Happen. Remember March and April come on. It's it's fun to be attended May June. Yeah I remember it. Yes. Absolutely. It is. There's nothing wrong with that as long as expectations I mean. Martin, we saw social media at the Minnesota twins last night in full bloom from eight innings of Cantona Ada to Taylor Rogers should never take the mound again as long as he's breathing it's it happens that quickly so. Crazy but that's yeah that's okay. People have you know firing off opinions but good for Cam Dancer I mean I'd like. I'm sure he's got a real positive attitude about what he wants his and his own talents and flip the things settled down. He's pro chocolate milk he likes chocolate milk. He'd just handsome which helped. Jumped really I actually saw that photo and thought the same thing like holy cow but I looked at it objectively. So he's up in the air to catch a ball, but his legs are also bent. So. It makes it look like he's that much higher off the ground. So don't forget about that human element that his legs were straight. It wouldn't I loved them by. Component. Joke. But I'm on Hawk side it's okay to be exciting. Wasn't saying don't be excited. But. Remember she was being objective. I don't like chocolate milk does to you. Yeah. Makes you crabby? Kinda way we also added another linebacker to the future super bowl champion Minnesota Vikings. Twenty six year old California native now Viking linebacker hardy nickerson been around for awhile. Great. Name. Tampa Bay. Son. This is. One of the long time ago, and he plays in his old man in the hall. Hardy Nickerson played Yeah with. Nickerson. UNDRAFTED free agent in two thousand nineteen has played thirty seven career games with nine starts. Eighty one tackles made seven starts to eighteen. Because? I didn't know Hardy Nickerson had a son. So when you just said that I was convinced somebody was trolling you. Can Get Hawk to admit that. He thinks is. All right. Yeah he his senior was on the NFL nineteen ninety s all decade team. Five time billable. Really good player. Sweep? Do faces coming in and out. Can't. Talk Baseball with morning when we get back because. That was a good one last night came to my aid almost with a with a no hitter we can get the the breakdown and you guys during the break continue that conversation to the air. You guys were just saying you both like the runner on second. About that because. I don't think a lot of baseball fans were thrilled when Major League baseball put that rural in but you guys both are in favor. Let's hear why when we get back. Mark and mark in the morning right after this on the fan the fan. Good morning, everybody should powerchip morning so. Thanks for tuning entity to one. Three M show happening as. Rosy and Gilmer here the three ends. Of course Korean Saucy Myself Zach somewhere as well. He's. talked him down the line Paul that trump with milk somebody's doing. You. Know we technically four ams with meat sauce. Can Point problem you're gonNA work for potential sponsors. An probably pass me over anyway it's is right. It's one BECCA is yeah. Thanks hardly anybody hasn't thought of that forum. Yeah. Have you heard? Have you thought of six? I'm one step ahead of that what are you on seventy? The. Future guarantee what happens. Like if Somebody asked you to write a song that was better than candle in the wind. Would you rate? Does this have to be five thousand times better. Yes. It has to be Five Thousand Times better than candle in the wind. Then, I'd call it Five, thousand candles in the wind genius. I saw your Leslie Nope in twenty shirt. That's great. That's a great. Both. The original shirt was twelve or away everything. Was I had. Well. I've Seen Nope Swanson, I've seen NOPE? Wyatt. Has Been why I've seen? No, Faye. No wait poehler fey. It's a ticket like no fan. I know twenty twenty everybody go vote. I mean voting for fictional character, leslie no is a better vote than Kanye. West. Yes greatest say look. If you're on the left this year you think people that vote on the right are idiots if you're in the right, you think the people that are voting on the Left are idiots, right? That's how divisive the country is as if you're making the other vote in urine. Idiot. and. Right on both sides. Can we all agree that if you vote for Kanye West, you're the biggest idiots. Yes, you are. You are dumber than conde if you're actually gonNA throw your vote. Away. And vote for Kanye West all your hands I. Don't know a lot about. Stuff. Think. He'll get. To set the over under on how many votes Kanye will get no idea I mean there's a million look just just. Free. Zach looked it up. I. Thought It was twelve percents act found out that seven percent of this country thinks that chocolate milk comes from brown cows I wasn't too far off so I. Know It's something like three hundred and thirty million. Right. But to make the math easy three hundred million right if that's twenty one, million people think chocolate milk come from brown cows you don't think a couple of those idiots are gonNA. Vote for Kanye West Lake surely will. So he's going to get way more votes than we think. Yeah I. Think the barest million didn't they find that his even the petition or whatever it is you need to sign to get to run in the first place like seventy five percent of those names were fabricated. If he gets a million votes, but he fabricated eight hundred, thousand of something. You always have people writing in names for president, and that's you know that's part of our cultural. That's. Right exactly. Exactly. But this is just Nuts but. I'll leave it at that We don't need. Just, throw this out, but since you kind of touch. Id. Lord hockey not that. Just the fact that people who live in the middle, which is where I live in. It sounds like I. Mean I would think a lot of humanity lives in the middle I don't vote party line one way or the other I'm sometimes I lean. But sometimes lean a little this way. WHERE DO I fit? Why am I not the norm anymore you're not. One. Extra. Tiny thirteen. Facing you know he's targeting you he wants you he wants the middle. The undecided are you are you in the middle? because. That's the vote he wants. I don't think you're an idiot I don't think you're mentally capable of voting for Kanye, West is. I think. That might be true. In general is that not still a common place to live or? Am I in the minority now that people have you aligned with one way or the other and you stick dig in heart and you do not. genius. It's Changed I mean I I used to be more. Like that myself I mean I still like that open my we saw a lot of that last night and you're looking at John McCain's of the world other people who are reached across. Partisan lines have actual adult conversation our boy crease old. Yeah. Exactly. I think of you know Jim Rams politicians I have done that, but it's getting harder and harder. I think for young people. It's hard for people to think about getting into politics, right if your person and you want to do good things and. Getting into politics is a way to make things happen. Maybe the local level it might be your best pet right now but otherwise, it's back to that. Look. At it like this talk Marnie think about this, and this may be a will make you feel better about just where you stand if you see a movie and you think the movies. Okay. You don't go run out and tell everybody it was either greatest movie you've ever seen her the worst movie of all time you dislike movie was fine. So people in the middle are the quietest because they don't have the strongest opinions right there like, yeah wait and see. So the most vocal people are the most extreme writes in the most extreme left. So if you feel like you're not that passionate about it either way that just means you're in the middle there's nothing wrong with that. There are things. About and sometimes it falls on this side of the Party line because it's this topic not not people. I don't Associate Party with people like the current president or the current candidates or the like just like the democratic way of thinking of the Republican way of thinking sometimes I lean this way on a certain issue and others on. Policy than this character. Yeah. I like character to. That's big. Yeah I. IF I could vote on character but also cast that. But I'm in the medal and there's no room for me anymore get. OUTTA line. We were talking about. The Strike up the band this star wars theme. Young boy. Do, I miss that show. Yeah. No kidding. We there. We know know we know Weiner even heard that Marty. I think we have an now. He loves that was you can hear you know what you're going to hear in January of twenty twenty one. What is it? Brenton's. West. Billions a good number. Seem. So high. You'd have to be high to vote for on your west the. Company followers does he have for example and on twitter or instagram? Whatever is? That because those people I would assume most are fans. Some maybe just along for the Foley meant million. Rosie who are you boating for the Beezer is. B. E. Capital be. Thobe Beezer. I'm from. Sports. that. It's time for fans five brought to you by builders and remodelers. Muller's Hey, thanks, builders and remodelers. Little Royal. The twins won four to three ever the drunken S- counties in twelve Kenton my eight. It was the story though he had a no hitter into the ninth that got broken up in the twins the twins I blew the lead but they found a way to win but Let's let's not even talk about that. We talked about. Earlier. Almost had an elevator. Right struck out eight consecutive batters that they twins record major league records ten. Didn't the kid from the was at the Tigers struck out nine about what a week or two ago. We did that story. Lord Chris. has both off air said you're a fan of the runner on second base in the extra innings thing lane why Marnie was to me obviously put this ruling for the condense season they wanted to protect pitching staff. So you I'm looking you don't have to sit through fifteen inning games that lasts five hours. Here's the Mardi. I like it because it does add a Lotta immediate strategy to the game. I mean you've gone through your nine innings and the tenth and we saw it last night. There's no guarantee that guy from sex based in the score and all sorts of scenarios occur it. It's gimmicky could say that baseball rarely goes out of the mainstream way of doing things but the options and the the decisions the managers have to make in watching from home I liked it a lot I. mean it puts a lot of pressure on your pitching staff infielders guessing game I. Think it's the first time having seen it ourselves. I hope they keep it. I like it I like I like it a lot for the entertainment value. I can fully understand how managers don't like it and I understand if you're a baseball purist because the first nine innings are not played that way right? Understand that I like it for the entertainment value because something happens every inning every half inning and I have watched fifteen inning game sixteen, seventeen eighteen where you have multiple innings in a row where nothing really happens. It's three up three down its ground balls and fly balls and. Not a lot of drama. Is, drama every half inning guaranteed I love the entertainment of. Last night the twins. Those like how could this happen? They sent to many of the plate and they they had three outs they recorded three hours outweighed does. Well. because the runner in second, he was thrown out at third on a ground ball, the first Baseman, and then there's the bucks hit a double play. I think last night's game more than anything. This year is the first time on a picture perfect night here the twin cities were really missed the fans of in really. Miami going to the mound in the ninth inning and understanding everyone have been on their feet. You could have heard the crowd roaring all the way downtown and it's the first time you Kinda went man at this but I mean, I think people I you can tell by social media last night I said, my got definitely got a standing ovation after he gave up that at bloop single to the end, the bid and expression on his face you know you've talked to in through his interpreter he's got such a you just blows up he's. You. Know he's thirty, thirty, three, thirty four has been around for a while. When he came off smiling even when he was still on the mountain, the baseball and he had this grin on his face like. Oh my God give believe I got that close. There was just pure joy. Out so I think this would really resonated with fans. Number of storylines, how'd you like to be a beat writer? How is Lavelle doing this morning when you have a guy that almost throws a nine hitter and that is your story and then all of a sudden you're in the tenth and that all that everything that happened and Marlene Gonzales gets thrown out we've already use pinch runners and pinch hitters and either a five-man infield. By the time, we win the game crazy story lines in that game were incredible even more. Frustrating to lose the game after what my either did, and fortunately for the twins, they're able to scratch a a win out because Byron Buxton hit into a double play which allowed him to be on surveys. Yes he's. He's probably the only strategy that would have scored on that. Gras, ball from third base. So let me ask you to this now on bring perishing because we talked a little bit about this last week with the five overtime game in the NHL Playoffs. would you guys still be in favor of this Inda postseason or do you want this to only be a regular season rule your question? Follow her parish I. my feeling is. In the postseason you go back to the old rules, that's just you know having I mean I I won't be toward if they did it the other way I think getting to the postseason is why they're using this rule. So I think they'd probably go old school but maybe around. That from the Pant Fan Perspective in the entertainment perspective I say stick with. Games are four four and a half hours in the postseason. True. So you get. Talking about. Four hours. So mark last week when that five game went down, we were talking about how you can't go to a shootout in the playoffs right? That's dumb. But you even said as a player you would have been open to at some point they said, we go to three on three we can't go five on five for eternity. These guys are GonNa be absolutely winded and just wreck the rest of the series. Yeah, and it's and you look at it and I was Even, against that I was a total purist when backing all four when they started talking about going to the three on three and the shootouts, it does bring an excitement to definitely not the shootout in the playoffs just can't go to shoot. But at the same time you watch those like fifth and fourth and fifth overtimes it's horrible hockey guys are just shot, and if you go to at least there's going to be good scoring chances going to be more enthusi- and more excitement. That's a great point. Through three. We've talked about the. Shots the. Equivalent of putting a run around. Second base. I mean. But a lot of hockey purists. Rush think that you just play it the way it is and play till you. Drop so. Ben. NBA Playoffs Talk. Brin loss last night goes the. That I know Tommy has box in Lakers lost yesterday, right? And as the Lakers and the clippers. Magic. Are Thirty to one underdog to win the series and they won game one by twelve and we mentioned it earlier.

"Kevin Kevin Heaven. You're just ridiculously stupid. Welcome welcome welcome Welcome man take back back. In New York City Case Smith Catholic lands jacker obvious for the new C. C. K.. Kerr only an hour. which is the stupidest thing in the world but hey whatever hour long radio shows? Let's fucking cram all the good shit into sixty minutes instead of two hours. Speaking of Kramnik Kevin being in Miami. That was I am. He's awesome. Did you tip your your Hotel the maid service. Because I mean you should have. Here's my logic right. The candy bars in the Hotel Sosa. We're like well. They were very stale but I ate all of them and they were probably like ten dollars a candy bar. So the profit margin between like what candy bars cost in what I was charged. That's my tip sheet motherfucker walker that has to do with the fucking may sweat to clean up your come all right. Listen No I didn't leave it to but I haven't had cash cash on my person since two thousand dollars. It's tough when you've just got sixty dollar tip so just like consider half of that. That's going to ride that wave. Yeah Okay Twenty thirty from Willie got it. All right rocky was coming in his room all week coming every everywhere and we the the exclamation point on the end of the week. DOC was the Barstool party which was our greatest operation ever until it wasn't it was and then it wasn't it was did you hear Asom. The spectacle was obscene. It was huge. It looked good. It was well staffed. We finally learned everything. And then. Then we'll we'll we'll do it like movie style where they give you the end. Then you rewind Dave. Last night she got punched in the face of the planet. Exactly that so last night Dave Dave said I looked around and at one point me and guys were arguing with the fire marshal while Devon and Dante were screaming at people on stage and all of a sudden I had time traveled back to two thousand eleven right back in the middle of the blackout tour. So we told you it was going to be a throwback blackout party and and we delivered because it got shut down it was a fiasco. It was a nightmare and I mean none of it really our fault. Some of it was our fault. The rain obviously was the main culprit. But we got guys in here now Kinda. Give us the money bags. The place was a warehouse. That was more just a roof than these these eventing we start planning these like the summer. Seven months let's start with like it's basically I start thinking about Tampa. It's by far. The biggest event barstools ever thrown are not even close. We're talking we threw a pay per view amateur boxing match in newer rave in a warehouse in the Hood in Miami and the Super Bowl. Like it's just like a lot of moving parts to do is huge the by far the coolest place. We've Donna venue the barrel. The Promo girls the waiters the SEC red carpet Like there was like a Fan duel section and a nab sexy. Like all these weird. It was awesome. The stage looks incredible. This the jumbotrons Tom. Everything looked amazing and it was going smoothly although we fucked up the security the soon but it wasn't like unsafe. It was just that like we were supposed to have the security was fine. It was just not for. Yeah we are on behind. That was people that get tables. Show up at like midnight eleven. You don't want that whole half empty so it's like let's put people up there so it looks like an awesome atmosphere earn live TV and all that Shit and then when when they show you have security move out now. We're not to now. Five thousand six thousand people are in the venue in. It's all condensed to where the roof was it. It was supposed to be more spread out. Yeah the torrential downpours. Everyone just like was look there so you just couldn't get anyone else and then it was like just fucking hold on tight. The reign like I. I had a funny tweet looking back on it. The rain was great at first because the place was so crowded and there were so many people that I was getting sweaty sweaty and the rain started to blow in a little bit and it was just like having missed on you as the lights. We'd like the monsoon of Miami is actually making it rain inside a little bit and it's the best thing that's ever happened. Anybody in the area and then it was like narrator voice. No it wasn't because by the end I mean that must have been the most rain that Miami has gotten in years so like it was. I was extract people in the red carpet like oh it was crazy logistically but it was it was essentially like the fire marshal wanted to shut down. Eleven o'clock this to Iran or Gotcha out. Pepsi's Party got shut down because of flooding and like they're a big quake. Harry styles didn't get to go on like it was four or five parties. Listen today the rain green was the culprit was not tornado warnings. So they they were worried. That was like sixty seventy mile winds inbound chumming. Listen like you're considered an exterior venues just like if you're gonNA sixty mile an hour gusts you got lights. They're not rigged for that. And so yeah. We're still like we're fighting with them for you know the blackout going. Let's to try to stay alive while my dedication wants that was like. Let's just keep the party going as long as possible so people can just drink as much as possible and they get so fucked up. They don't even know what's going on. I mean we've had blackouts shutdown right like we won A. Yeah the the new now with a bunch of celebrities. That was the thing I was like. You know when when the blackout door got shut down and it was me out us and the college kids it was like whatever when you've got pro athletes and entertainers and shit. It shooter mcgavin like swimming way. We don't go and get results because that is the highlight of it all but I was thinking table like we were asked to asks with everybody and not because we wanted to be. It was literally. You're saying there and then you turn and right to my right on. My shoulder is Joe Borough. WHO's like one of the most famous people in sports right now and he's just sitting there Kramden as I I was like I think? Because he's young he was allied whatever this Lsu. I feel like if you were any adult role. Rob Lowe is just like having a great time rob blow just walking through the crowd wearing his Houston. asterisks shirt is what is going on. Why are you what is what is wrong? I guess he brought his kids with him. So he's by like the cool dad being down with Barstool but yes the Yellow charity softball game. They fucking bar. It's hilarious it's the I guess and it was. It was this Donovan mcnabb. Where together no idea found out back to bore just in the mix of your old girl? VIP The guy turns that girl like yeah big time athletes. That I didn't even know were there so I don't know what they did. So we we see I was I had I got an early too so I was like I gotta get the Fuck Outta here fights and his girl like you know what I'm GonNa come with you too so as relieving when it truly got shot in a honestly at that point like I was like it was starting to get like scary in the sense of where people are so fucked up. People are starting to hang from the rafters. There was not enough security so I actually think it getting shutdown the head it absolutely is it was just. It was going to break out into like you know it was kind of like the mud day at Woodstock yeah people starting to slide around wondering how many like Louis we baton shoes. I got rid Kellie Martin. Shoes got literally swept away in a river slip and they got along the cur- where there it was like a big river. They just got taken off and Williams like Jason after I mean it was pure chaos situation nuts because I didn't have to go the bathroom. I was sweating. I it was. It was the third worst I've ever had to pick a my entire life. The first two I ended up pissing my pants so the bathroom situation was like everyone was in the venue like undercover right. But they're these trailers that were outside that you'd have to like go. Yeah you have to run to and then eventually because the rain everyone's shit face like people just started cutting the line like there was a line forming inside a run for it like fuck this. I'm not not doing it so I had to sprint to a parking lot Brennan Walker had to like watch. My daddy was like the fucking like the tomb of the unknown soldier in front of us I was doing the day Portnoy Bagwell in between two cars like pissing and then Brenna walkers standing there like protecting my penis and by the time we've got back to like Casey and all of them like it looks like dove into a pool table right so I was actually standing with Gaz outside and this is what. I knew that we weren't seeing Gaz anymore anymore. We were seeing Paul because the look on his face when I was outside with them while I was pouring rain trying to get a car which is like pure just like what the fuck have I created which is why Willie's quote this morning on breakfast was perfect. Viktor the mad scientist. And you just didn't realize when you created and I turn around. And I see jared and Brandon just sprinting in the rain and Brandon. Just keep saying God damn boy got. Uh what did jared just do. What did he do? It was just like a father. There was impressed with his son street. Passing half minutes it still that. We're trying to get a car and how hard it was for us who work at Barstools staining with guys who has planet to get a Karmic what are the celebrities. Liberty's GONNA do. We got out and I was like we gotta just get away from this to get a car because there's five thousand people trying to order cars and so we just started walking again like you said it was like a weird in spite of Miami where it was and shit. So I'm like I'm furious at this point. I got to be at the airport in like three hours as mother fucker and I didn't know what what we were GONNA do. We just start walking and all of a sudden like Goddamn Guardian Angel. We hear this guy like who John Do. You need a ride and it was like a friend of the wrong who won stance on stage at a blackout tour. I thought he was like an intern and he was like. Yeah like come on with us. And if it wasn't for that it would and they and they were in the hotel next to ours it was just like thank the stars and moons aligned to get home otherwise I was sitting there. I'm like now I'm happy. We're driving home. And by the way as he drove over the bridge there was a car that was just engulfed. Inflames it was it was it was the end of the world. Why why a car exploded? I don't know but there were burning vehicles and flooding roads and John Lewis companion like what did what about you do. What did you do? Sam Darnold do these guys were like just running down Uber's and so John's girl told me that he was just ignoring whoever was yelling at him because he thought I know and finally she was like Hey Babe I think that guy like she said you guys were just going to keep walking walking. God we jumped him with him and and he was like again. I don't know if he worked one event or multiple events but he was like. Hey man it was like just like old times up there and I was kind of like fuck this as but whatever let's do it. I told the guy when he dropped optus off I was like I will never ever forget you. This is the nicest thing that's anyone ever done for me. And I would've I don't know what would have happened to me. Thank you so much but I mean it was the the pay per view aspect like watching people. See that for the first time is always a trip watching Dante and Devlin start the blackout tour. I've never seen Dante smile. That much of my life seeing Devon Back Jack doing his intro running the opener package on the screen awesome like it really was a turn back into the blackout tour and it was short lived but for the moment of having it back awesome. That's what we wanted to do. I mean we are First Party in Houston was like legendary. Everyone's talking like he didn't didn't feel like a house party and all these. I think we're just getting fucked up knowing about anything suit like party that sometime in the last couple years. We've had that because we like partnered with the wrong people and rough and rowdy we did last year was not a party is rough and rowdy. It was on this year. We're like we're just GONNA blow it out and hopefully like literally like burn it down and that's kind of what we did. It just didn't get to go longer but it was funny like so many people since that first party like it's a disaster it's a disaster like this is like kind of what we we wanted it to be something that we're GonNa talk about. Yeah we wanted to report we got into. They are still ask like every time we do something big business. Wise people like all they're going to sell out or they're going to change was very apropos on the week. Everyone we're like officially made it made. It made it made it. We were like Oh. Yeah but we're still gonNA shut down like a fan standpoint. Had to have been fucking awesome. I thought we would have gotten a lot of people complaining. Email like we've gotten very little the way it's still went to like one thirty shutdown compared to other parties and open bar the whole thing like everyone got their Miami and people were legless when they were leaving leaving so but as Kelly and Danielle are out there with a whole night and they're kind of like I'll fuck like trying to do what they need to help them like. Listen at this point like we just gotTa survive in advance. Yeah we're GONNA win this wittingly withdraw try to survive. That was really the end of the game. Like let's go as long as we can but it was really just like fasten your seatbelts. Like we're just GONNA have to grit our teeth and like just hold on tight so I kept thinking about what what the celebrities were going to do you and then I see maybe the funniest most lasting image. I'll ever have in my life. Is Shooter mcgavin Chris Christie. And I think it's the same sitting sitting on like a loan chair a single chair in the middle of a fucking flood river on the phone like screaming holding other era closed. Just trying to figure things out. It was a scene from titanic. was shooter mcgavin. Pretty much down knowing. That dude is like a party booze bag animal. I didn't even know he was in the mix. Until after the fact then the shooter mcgavin parody account retweets Portnoy pulled the night that ninety nine percent on me so I I mean. Did anybody like see what became of him he might be. You might have just been. Yeah that video from one of our sales guys like one of our clients sent me this I I actually talked and I think it was. I was like dude before. It's so funny and like I want you to understand how funny video overdue I'm not sending it so you like give me some love right right right right and make sure you watch it re write back. Just that to me I I would rather have a party bomb at the end gets shut down for that image. Then it'd be like hey the bar support. He was awesome last night. I was like should I put this. Does it make it look bad. He's like right. We don't go fuck this is so it's it's everywhere by everybody. Louis WAIN party in Atlanta last year whenever you took him like kissing me in whatever I was where is is this guy just always feel us on his phone with like so instead of like his sponsor play like I did it again. I went off the rails again a sponsored and just sitting by himself. That's the I mean again by himself. Look Buddy was in there a game. He was standing by himself and I was like no one really really not right for whatever. Reason didn't recognize him and I went and got him like brought him around to like a side thing and then I just caught him. I didn't see him until that video. Nobody has ever done better with like a cult classic role then that guy. He has milked every last bit of it. But you gotTA think we're getting to the point where that movies pushing like thirty years old right like I guarantee you put that guy in front of some kids. They're not gonNA. Maybe you could explain it in the big. Oh yeah I know that but just looking at them not gonna fix carpet and he just walked right and I'm like you didn't stop shooter. mcgavin the praying jail when I mean that to me was worth worth at all but but both seeing the blackout tour revived was pretty cool. At one point I had like a moment. I was like standing with Joe Borough and the Bosa family and like fights was gone so I was pretty much by myself or at least he's not any other barstool people and was looking out. I kind of have one of those moments especially as the blackout tour like revived and I was thinking like the only reason we got here is because that like saved us when we we were broke and now it's back again and we sold and all this shit and I was just like smiling ear to ear and then it all went to shit like instantly and I almost smiled more like the about when you gave me one of the blackout. When you were sitting next to Joe Brough did you think he looked like him? I see it I mean you know what the real reason is. We both have bags under is. I don't know why he has them. I got him in my life. That have just asked her but we both have the White Guy Daddy is but yeah I mean he like he was he was the perfect example of like England fog. Whatever it's raining it's crowded like yes we're at a party fucking? Let's roll boasts. A family make both the family goes hard family. Were great they were everybody in there was just. I love the bow so heart art. I'll ride for them forever. Now people trying to give nick trouble for following accounts on all right. I'm officially a space whenever it's just right there believable to that guy. His look is just unbelievable. Take notes if you can if you can pull off that look do it because that was trying to figure out like exactly what it looks like an eye just came it. Looks like Danny. From game of thrones and the color of it but he still pulls it off somehow. Yeah that was that was that was a little section. I can't believe like see their Joe Montana show. I mean I heard he was coming and I was like hell. Oh Montana was it. Jim Kelly from the buffalo bills. They were like the nicest family ever they were Jim. Kelly was the thing is you couldn't see past like are right in front of us. They're also crowded and you have no idea vicks and I'm like Cologne said tyreek Hill. was there like the one who played in the Super Bowl. He's like what he was like. What are you doing now? The Fuck Outta here. He said this. That's hilarious yeah you know. Hang out and play in a couple of days official headcount but what it ended up being. I know that we have in an hour over six thousand three doors down because the last year we didn't promote it really until until the end because we were worried about like it was a capacity issue. There where you don't want to have ten thousand people in this kind of we could just limit. We could let as many people as we wanted right but I think it was six thousand went through the door but like inside at one time I think it was four thousand something like Geez. That's still so many on man. Whatever the cars pulled up to drop off and I saw the line was basically wrapped around the entire fire building? It was like a strap. Let's which is good because people are gonNA show up at nine o'clock in Miami nine o'clock you're sleeping still. Yeah Yeah Yeah so but now everyone came out out in droves of hundreds and you're gonNA HAVE PTSD from it. I don't want anymore those and say you gotTa do one more but just like not. How Miami's emmys the perfect city for it lightly like Shit like that and I was surprised I mean next year Tampa Vegas is there after that? No I thought I thought it was Tampa than La. Either way they'd be like like Tampa Vegas Vegas some in some order you. Are you sad that it didn't like. I was bombed the next day Eric ten times because I was like then and like that was going to be like the Walker then. I realized that everyone was like it was kind of like inside. I wasn't drinking. I wasn't like in the mix I went inside was at like right when the blackouts started. Yeah and I didn't come back until the Fire Marshal in with me at one o'clock and that's when I could see like people just kind of hanging off the every like climbing up on I was yeah I was like I saw. NBA basically couldn't get any. You couldn't get any better than we were. I feel like I had to blow dry my hair when I got back like I literally looked like went and took a shower. I wouldn't drink my newest miserable. Part of my life went rock bottom basic. Because I was I was bombed I was like man. We spent six months like doing this. I wanted and it was going to be one of those and again people are talking about it the way I wanted it to be talked about but I ended up across the street at CCA unharmed frog probably. They must've taken like a Royal Caribbean cruise ship to Miami and I was just sitting there like drinking like those stupid Dana fucking soaking oaken wet. I'll sit there with my buddy from back home and I was like dude this. What happened this weekend? I end up here based off of like millionaire millionaire in the mix. Yeah Yeah that I think in the end. It's better like if you have a good part. Good story is able to remember it. You'll never forget. Yes expand forgetting Paulie. I even think about the amount of people who probably like. I bet so. Many people were like jumping into other people's Uber's survive. Who went home box and they partied together? Talk to you remember even if they go back a little bit of adversity actually kind of ratchets up the memorable aspect of it you have all the Super Bowl parties ladies. You've ever been juiced like yeah. We went to that party went to that. Whatever it's like you just talk about it again next year status? I remember obviously but I'm trying to think I don't like literally remember or like the venue and I remember like the sights and sounds. I'll remember that one way before I remember any other ones good or bad start to Eric. Phillies talking about shooter. mcgavin Eric. Hey what's going on Jim. Kelly and Chiro best friend makes sense Kelly's in the building shooter Kinda came along. I I like you think of him. I'm going to pretend I didn't know that I think is a lone wolf who just shows up to these things and and like. Where's the hot spot? Let me get in the creek on some checks and have a good time to that guy he is shooter mcgavin. There's no he'll play it up too. Yeah Oh yeah embraces it like hardcore due to the Max out of any character that like that still exists after twenty years of playing said character. How many of them do you think actually respond to their name without getting I mean and and I don't know his real name I'd call him Jack Morris like that right so I mean you've got a little resentful of how many guys that were defined one character embrace embrace it? He's like shoot or you WanNa go to sizzler. And he's every time like had it'd be like fuck you. We know if that account is connected to him at all. I don't think it isn't that guy's just like a social media savvy guy who knows the role that the only thing is is like. It's so fast how he knows what's happening like even like I said last year like immediately he was like not that I was with David Gas. It's his buddy that you saw them. Sure he's anytime. That guy goes anywhere he gets like. DM's video he was tagged two thousand times around Bryher. Yeah Yeah Yeah Great Parody Account James from South Carolina. James going buddy I mean a go from South Carolina to my through the rougher Audi raeside into the fights of the West thunderstorms probably about I'm here there you go. I mean you know. I'm sure there are certain people who would prefer that didn't happen but again if you're in it for the memory of it all if you're not like prissy or you're not you know I'm sure people some people were worried about their shoes like you said and stuff like that but if a ruin. Yeah but that's what I wish. I wish that I had known that it was going to be like that. And then I would have dressed rest for I mean. I don't think anybody could have predicted that rain. Where you with everybody with GonNa just rolling going with the flow Man My shoes are still wet this morning. But it ain't no honestly I won't forget. Yeah man thank you. I appreciate you coming out for that making the trip. I feel like if you are are people you're down you know. Just Miami the Miami and heard about us and heard we're going to be the big party Freddie and you got all dolled up and went and didn't know the score you might be like what the fuck this is but if you're down with us that was there's a video of Mo jo so from the WWe carrying Charlotte flare out from underneath like. She's a wounded soldier. Just sprinting across to like cover. I wish I could Somebody but he should try to track down all the celebrity tales of getting home. Because I like because if if you didn't have a situation like you and then there is so many people that just Kinda got lucky. It looked like we were going to be stuck there for hours because I mean it's not like an arena where you can spell out everywhere like oh you're basically spilling out into like a little last neighborhood. Yeah how the fuck are you getting all these. I don't even want to think about this surge rate and that was to I mean I don't even know what that guy paid us to get home. I would have paid anything thousand dollar. Oh Shit whatever I mean in a weird city I just get the fuck home but either way guys I feel like everybody is kind of on the same page. I feel like everybody buddy thinks as a success memory and I'm sure it was fucked on work. It's unbelievable to think that like rain could just like just bad weather and ruins like you know well The next day rained the whole time. They were there people everybody here at the beach and people are like just fucked up again bathing suits so yeah it was. I wonder like if you had known own. Let's I don't know somehow could have predicted the weather. Would you have done like I wonder if we could have done your turn into like where you're bathing suit or like you know it's going to be like an outdoor like fiasco. Oh or whatever because the only thing that like the only thing is when you weren't aren't prepared for it like yeah you know you're gonNA be like in a woodstock situation where it's fucking like. Let's just like party in the rain and actually kind kind of becomes a fun thing then. Yeah it's a barn. It's like I know it's going to be a mess less roll with it Overall though is the rough and rowdy people usually like more knockouts coutts or more like the the fuck guy the guy got out of breath. Fuck you man. That's that's tough like the reigning champ. But the the midgets were a good time. The every I mean everything else rain aside I feel like Ghana went along like okay cording to plan but are we doing to get in Tampa gas. I've diving tonight to talk. Talk to David Bowie. If he wants to be rough around but swimming. We're going to do it again. I I would imagine you're going to Tampa next month trying to plan this again. I did actually look at some venues one because we had done a blackout in Tampa Florida. Beach the beach which was when I went to like housing go on the beach. That's Wagner. Go Twenty twenty one then from Miami. What's up local boy? Would you thank God. That rough and rowdy got three good stories for you. The milk man's family was absolutely electric. Yeah the MILKMAN. If you're familiar with Robin Rowdy fighting like our Sun within the rank with their screaming. That's my son. Sam darnold walked right. Fire is like a half ways. Hit out of nowhere goes. Hey Sam talk to you. I'm seeing ghosts and I had never laughed so hard in my life. Dan Listen you come to our party. Two years it's going to be one of the people in the mix so Obama for his head down to four is it is quite the scene man. Nobody nobody gets like any You know you're just like everybody else. When you've got a black torches they're to fucking let rip and ride whereas Dante in that must have been bombed that they couldn't play out their whole set Dante John W were freaking out because the stage each got overrun against all of us on the stage was just filled with like five hundred people so and you get on stage at the blackout towards dance? Come on how but no they where I mean. They were from what I hear. They were like actually the next Erica. She's so positive. It's crazy from what we've dealt with our life with. She'd text me she goes. Could you just let Dante. I know that he's an amazing talent. And I'm like I like you're not gonna like no one's ever going to tell you this Erica. But this is a true story. Yeah I'm like in and you know this is probably the only thing you've ever gotten positive and your fifteen years like around Barstool and this is it. And he's like Oh man that's so nice but now he was. He was backed loving like back. It was just like old. Yeah it was short lived but for the moment there with the intro the drop the smoke the songs all that Shit at one point when we were running the opening package judge and I it was probably when I was standing there goofy smiling because that opener package was great and Joe Borough was talking to his buddy and he turned me is what's going on right now because like if you don't know if you weren't around Oh you don't get it and I was like it's a long story man I I couldn't even describes right now just know like shits about to go junior high. Don't worry you or not even actually newsworld. Yeah you just reminded me of so amount side talking to the fire department. It's midnight the blackouts about to start. There's tornado warnings. And all this shit then all of a sudden the siren just starts blaring from the video. Literal Tornado Siren Star Star like Kallio Lego. So the cops and shit like they think fucking tornadoes actually actually come because they don't like this is why we actually Tornados happening. And I'm like no like this like it's been ten years. Whatever very didn't help my piece basically right right well either way? Awesome stuff will never be forgotten. And we're GonNa hit our first break last with this new lineup and we'll come back. We'll get some more calls Dominican. Dylan's on hold. We'll talk to him. We'll get into some more Miami stories and we'll talk a little super for ball when we get back on C. C. K.. Power you in the Zillion beer movement is here. And we're doing zillion beer moving woman on C. C. K. with Miller lite always drink responsibly. But when you're getting into Zillion Beer vibe make sure you do it with Miller lite. It's Miller time baby. We were drinking mill lights nights with Rob mclane drinking and my buddies Dana.

Bill Brewing company Milwaukee Wisconsin Ninety six calories stories and three points per twelve hours go get a miller. lite it's Miller time welcome Welcome back our second hour long condition. Ever the response yesterday was very nice from all the fans who green ice cream that second hour. There are a lot of people that were mad about it. Yeah I mean I feel like we. We're reacting to that reaction much more because there's also equal amount of CCA haters who people come at the rocket and people who talk shit about. I mean in Casey so we often hear a lot of negative things. But it's always nice to hear a lot of positivity and a lot of people who who realized we could after fifty eight minutes and that's when we start but it new new show new formats all that means is we got to cut out the bullshit. Don't tell longwinded stories getting right to the fucking point criminal into an hour and so today is Today is is nuclear Tuesday Tuesday nuke day every every everybody here has a nuke to drop. I'm going to be breathing hard. I just WanNa and let everyone know that he casey's new involves why she's reading heavy. The rocket has his own investigation. Going rocket investigation is cooking cooking. Cognac on the phones all fucking morning. This morning the rocket has been like you have this weird energy smiling. Why are you so giddy? And I'm like because I'm sick fucking newsletter. Your news well. Versed in context for context for jared like every time brings out the Hazel. What do you think about the Astros or what do you think about? He's always just like I got my own investigation and everyone's Kinda lightly what they hold up and so the rocket has been extremely patient and if and when he does drop I just want I warn you to not label it like a nuke unless you got a new like if you drop it in your like the Yankees were like their. Uniforms aren't up to code or some stupid non-related cheating shit like make sure you've got the goods. That's all I'm saying and I trust that you gotta get my mind. Nuke has been dropped on the regatta. Believe indeed new episode of we got to believe I told the people we'd only be doing episodes in the off season when necessary. And I deem this to be extremely necessary Casey. I don't even know if you you know. There's nuke oh no I don't Wanna I don't WanNa Cook the episode. I want you to go listen to it. Because it's me Clem. My brother and kyle all mets fans reacting. We actually didn't even tell Kyle with the point was and so he got like raw reaction from him but I got a call climb yesterday and this part I will re retail from the from from the podcast. I got a call from yes from climb yesterday. I actually got a text saying. Can you call me Jabber minute. I was like Oh fuck and he says to me. I have like very bad news but it wasn't. I could tell it wasn't like you know my kids are sick or something. It was like he was a little bit lighthearted. Sonic Okay and he's like he goes. What's the worst news that you or me or guy like Brendan and I go? Oh my God you're having another kid because I just named Dads I thought he was telling me he was going to have a third because Klem is always been like. I'm going to kill myself. That happens so he immediately was like no no way not that bad but then he mentioned kyle another mets fan so I mean what would be the worst news possible for mets fans right now. Steve Cohen's no longer involved damn rumors what happened GonNa Steve Cohen just rumors nothing. I need to reiterate this over and over again so that people aren't like I hope I'm wrong and I hope I get cold takes exposed and I hope that people are laughing and putting on my face but I want to be clear that I am not telling anything specific or official. I'm just saying we heard enough rumblings from multiple places with somebody who would be like trustworthy enough often close enough to the situation that the deal is dead it fell through or he quit works. Yes the rumor that we heard was that at the heart of it is the five year thing like he wants to take over now and also there's a dispute about `bout s and why the mets TV channel which originally. I don't know why there's a dispute what gives me hope is that that seems that'd that'd be something that'd be hammered out like day one like the original deal said that the mets plans are selling the mets but they're retaining the TV channel. And I could see like why would that be an an issue now now the what scares me is a couple of things number one. We haven't heard anything. There has been a press conference. There was one quote from Steve Collins. Saying thank it's been a lifelong dream of mine. Toner Major League Baseball team. And I want to assure you that when I do this won't affect my investing nothing. It was no manfred press conference. There was no official like ink is on paper. Nothing which seems a little weird right like any other time. You've heard of a team being bought by the team. And they just take over and they gave us this. This caveat of this five year thing what scares me is maybe that deal was never supposed to be public. Maybe tiki barber leaked this and then they had to be like all right. Did you guys address it. But maybe maybe they maybe they were planning on never announcing it until three years or two years or five years or whatever and they just had to and nothing was ever really fully done. I could also see a scenario where maybe the Wilpon said we retain S. N. Y.. Stevie call and being the shrewd businessman said. Okay you can have address. And why and then a little bit later said by the way when when I when I buy the mets they're gonNA air on TV or some shit like that like you can keep the channel. That doesn't mean the mets have to play on that January. So maybe there was some sneaky shit going on there. I never town out the wilpon ineptitude. I also don't know enough about see you Colin like maybe he's just in a radic crazy. Roese billionaire motherfucker and they piss them off and he was just like you know what. Fuck it I'm out I don't know and I. I hope that all this is untrue. I hope all of it is just rumors but we heard from Multiple now now on the other side of things I've asked people who are kind of in the know when they were like I've heard nothing like it. Sounds like it's because maybe working some things he's out. Yeah maybe that's the other thing too. Maybe it's just posturing maybe it's still negotiating. Don't feel I didn't think we were even. I thought we were done deal sort of thing and then I thought back on it. It's like I never heard of a A. It's almost like when you hear like an athlete agreed to in principle and then the next day on the bottom line you see like it's official like there was never that follow up its official thing and it was physical. Yeah like some you know. Maybe maybe that's what's happening here. Maybe it was all like well the rest is just formalities. And it turned out that formality was not a formality. I don't WanNa live in a world with you. Kevin clancy anti were Steven. Cohen is not a met. I don't I don't want it. That's why it's one of the worst things that can happen. I felt so bad. Yes yeah I called the rocketed. Have you heard anything. And he was like. Oh no you were so happy. It was a happy song. Heart of this. I mean the Mush Israel because Somebody somebody tax tweeted me saying. In five years you get like your big barstool payout and the mets get. Tom Brady probably retiring so I tweeted. That and I said the first half of my life stunk but second-half about to be pretty fucking Dole. mushed I fuck in mushed it. Maybe it's just rumors I feel like it's gone. I hope it's going the reason why and the reason why I put the podcast out on. We got to believe you can download right. Now you're mets fan subscribed to it mean Clem GonNa be chopping it up all season long whether it's the will of the no actually I don't know let's be honest if this falls through. I think I might be done. But anyway subscribes the buck cast. That'd be so bad. I put it out there because I was like. I don't know what's going to happen but I feel like take it from me. And I know other mets fans did this. We went into la La land and we got happy. We got cocky. We got we got. We got happy about it and I think I just needed to remind and the people. Hey wor mets fans and hey this is the mets and so I don't know if this is true or not but let's come back to Earth and let's remember that if something bad can happen it will and we need to be like cautious and remember that anything like it might not happen. So let's just I say with the mets you. Prepare for the worst and you you expect also the fucking so. Let's get back to that mentality and not count our chickens which I definitely did. I mean I sat here and I said I guarantee we're going to win. A world series. Cohen comes here. We're definitely GONNA win and now it's like well. Maybe that's not going to have you know. My first thought was when you call me yesterday. Though was that I wanted you like you were asking if I knew about it I I I didn't But because you've heard the rumors I wanted you to talk about it publicly without confirming it just like you're doing right saying that. It's just rumors because if there is like a big backlash based on the rumors that could be what gets done. I was actually come back to the table. We can't fuck so I was hoping I don't WanNa get ahead of myself or be arrogant about it but like maybe we can move the needle. Well maybe if the if the you know the fan in basis reaction it pays to like no like legit journalists like if there's ever like a story where like I can't touch it or like people wouldn't take it seriously if it came for me I saw S- writer stories all. Yeah then you ain't GonNa React afterwards even though it was year reactors yeah. I've done that like multiple times. Like people believe believe it for me but if I'd give it to this guy and he confirms it and then he writes extra shit. Oh Wow banging actually I just want to like. I don't care if it's for me I just wanted out there so that we can talk about like I wonder if it is posturing and I'm hoping right now like we got to believe is a smaller podcast and within the barstool world. The mets side of things is like you know it's not even even the Patriots. It's me and the mets but if there was posturing and now there is a little bit of a rally and people are upset. Maybe it'll change some of the posturing light a fire their asses. You know. No I know I can't go back. I can't fathom you having to go back. Can't I mean I I I like it. I was like the abused spouse. I stayed in the relationship which is on me but then I got out. It'd be like now I'm going back like you can't you can't go back to the out the stick figure like the stories this shark in Formaldehyde is gone on. It's not gone yet. Kevin Donohoe now. What is very funny? We kind of talked ourselves. Full Circle is there. Is this parallel. Oh five years thing with Barstool and now the mets need like who else in five years is going to be coming into a a huge sum of money. Who has talked about? Maybe buying sports franchises who also is now tied to the Wilpon. 's days go by the mets Kevin. The Science Plan B.. Wouldn't be all that bad if I get the D.. Portnoy deal with the devil to actually align with my beliefs for once. You don't think he would do it just to spite. Well that's what I myself. Holy so I said that in my brother was like Dude Day Puerto. He's a winner. He's not going to torpedo a team to heat right but I could definitely see him being like like. We joked around on the podcast saying who. I know he'd be butchering every name. And I'm like yeah we traded for Nolan are are Tornado. Whatever that's fucked KFC but we WANNA win but it'll piss him off that it's coming makes me happy as well? Yeah it would be a very interesting dynamic havoc but the favorite player in the mets pita. Lonzo are cool where we're going to have. Yeah but I mean the fields junior. Listen if Dave Portnoy Oy and pen Gaming WanNa not only by the mets but they turn that whole area in flushing that has been talked about forever turning it into a mall or a place of commerce pen wants to come in and put up. Some casinos doesn't clubs around those stadium. Right there just say this falls through the Wilpon runs. It did fall through still have to sell. You can't come back and be like never mind. We're actually totally competent and ready to do this for the next thirty years. They gotta find another another person but they're not gonNA find somebody like Stevie Kinda really sucks is that it and that's why I should never got excited because it wasn't a cabinet to be true. Not only did I wish wilpon selling no. They picked that there was one guy who would have been the richest in there as fall. There are always rumors about these things. That are wrong now. Sometimes you're right but let's let it be proven first before we jump off the ledge. Okay what we said was not everything that's out there on. The Internet is as true in the base. Alleges are assholes so we don't need to go near are those I said like we were on the bridge. Ready to jump off a lot of us had jumped and then the Steve Cohen news came and we all got off the bridge and I said get back in your car drive drive right up to the bridge and park it. Just sit there. That's that's were interview. We need to be right. We need to be able to jump off a bridge any moment. Sure that's go home and throw a party because you might have to jump bridge second correct. That's where we're at. I hope it's wrong again. Nothing concrete talking about it. I know I've always tried to do that. I've tried to like much but the most knows you know most knows what the heart wants right. Basically we should overreact yet. No but I don't want you start to overreact because I don't want you to be sad because you're always sad sad. Steve Cohen made you happy so happy. So let's have pointing men Shark Shark. The Shark we talked about the shark for like an hour. I mean we literally got to say that. If Steve Cohen bought the mets that he would be okay with them being renamed to the sharks. The call him Stevie I said I said I guaranteed a world series jared. I do believe I said that. Is You guaranteed it in Steve Cohen. Attached if I believe I believe so many Yankee fans are like dude by the mets GonNa fall apart somehow and I was like no way motherfucker. The fuck this business doesn't huge mets fleas to fall apart but that's like patriots fans. They enjoy anybody that loves New England could say OH. The Patriots are going to Super Bowl with Tom. Brady attached to it while Tom. Brady's attached not right into that. That's not on you. It's different but patriots won the Super Bowl. Tom Brady is on the quarterback but if he's the quarterback they probably will I just can't I can't. I can't like if that's true. I mean I will say if it like what one one of the rumors like one of the sources said dead like not like it's in trouble like it's a row so source you know it's it's like when TMZ broke the Koby News and everyone knew it was true because teams. He doesn't mess that stuff up. I don't know it's not even like someone like in the in the news of breaking business. It's just like someone has be in the know a little bit. So maybe they're just you know that almost makes me think like on the one hand that means. Maybe they're just like dead wrong on the other hand means they don't it's not like TMZ they have something to gain by being the person to break the news. They're just like you know people get off to that stuff. Yeah people do. Love Blake brakes. I I said this when we talked about the hall of fame and the Derrick jeeter thing and I don't think I ever took it to the Arab you're like why would the guy one attention if his name's aren't even attached to it and I likened it to the guys the guy the guy who voted cheater that was not to make him not unanimous unanimous. I said it's like when the guy in your DM's sins Dick Pic to like ten girls on one thread. You don't know who it is but they know that everybody's seeing it and talking about it. That's what's that guy. So maybe the Guy said the rumor is dead. He's just wanting attention. I don't know that that's the case. You're walking around with this huge smile before we get to the happy news. I just want Kevin to be able to live in his sadness because I don't know who's having a worse state the point. The point is going to be honest. I was that like you hear from people that know people. I got one of those like I know someone. WHO's in the loop with the mets and like we heard all the same things Kevin saying you did you did that? Yes you did your own yes. Oh you didn't tell me that this is like today like I haven't seen it yet. Oh Oh fuck doc but like it could end up being like what I'm saying we're like if you guys are talking about. Now we have a third source source. Yes in baseball. Yes like like connected to the mets being like. That's not to say that it's true but that's to say that like people that are connected to the the mets are hearing what you're hearing. I mean if you can't tell on my reaction right there I really. I was probably leaning towards like seventy percent. This is not true and that just swayed me to like ninety nine central inch Kevin like I feel like we had to Redo the podcast. Because I'd read the mets step right up and I feel like I was doing it almost like a little bit like funding and tongue in cheek and now I need to do it like okay. Now wait jump off the get out of the car. Get back on the Marines. I don't know but I I think I think that what we're dealing with here is is a situation where if it was five years down the line and that if this gets out there that people are finding out that this isn't going to work out and they see the backlash from mets fans they can. There's plenty of time to sit back down at the table and figure it out. There's been backlash for years Bro. Like mets screaming forever. That's Steve Cohen. Money what do you know what I just said what do you what did you hear I. I'll send you a screen shot. I can't say definitely better not be fucking with. Not If you do that. I will not be your friend ever not got okay. Changes say it because you've got to protect your sources. You literally just told GAZ Yesterday. Hey that if you sat on a bomb you would say it way gas was asking you guys like if you actually had real information about what's going on in baseball you would never try. Yes I would yes I would I have before just fucking say it I just did. I just told you I found jet just that there's like trouble. Yeah just people that are actually connected to the mets are hearing what Kevin is talking about who it is no. That's fine information to be like someone that's actually sitting on more information. They don't know all I was told. was that someone that was actually connected to the mets was hearing got all the things that Kevin was talking about. So it's not like a pay this person this person. Kyle's that's the only hearing more like more and more people. I think we broke a story. Kevin if that's fucking do you. I'm the first person to deliver the Goddamn like smallpox to the fan base great. We're all fucking dead. Sorry I'm sorry Eric Heaven I'm sorry Kevin. That's the worst news that I've ever gotten sports. You'RE GONNA say in general. Yeah well that's because it's not true jeered might might've case might be say honestly I said hope is the worst of things like you. Don't get my hopes up. I was fine. I was miserable miserable but I was. Okay just living in the fucking basement where I always belong and then I got out of the basement and I snuck up into the master bedroom and I started fucking jerk off in. They're having a party. And now I'm thrown back into the basement I'm not doing it I'm not doing. I mean you're not going to be a mets fan anymore you can Albee Kathy lashing our back. You're lashing out. You're not fucking with me right. No I he does have. This is something else. I didn't really punch everybody in the face punching joke. I'm heard out that's not funny. That's not funny. It's not funny is if you've talked with me about this Steve Cohen ship ribons go back its ribcage couch. I will not do it. I'm not going back I will knock back to your acting out I. I can't do it. I will not have like if the wilpon. If they say this deal falls through we have to find another suitor. Like fine. Steve Cohen would be the best case scenario. But a a someone else buys it okay. I can't go back to this while the wilpon there's going to be the owner and I agree with you not doing it. Let Seema Japan. Surely you stop watching. Don't baseball if that they were having to sell or trying to sell for some reason that didn't get miraculously fixed. Yeah they can't just be like well never mind. We're right because if if for whatever reason that they were wanting Steve Cohen to be a part of this. That reasoning still has to be there. There's no way that they're just like all right. While he was the only guy I there's no way it actually going to be very funny if US idiots are like influencing this deal and like if they were like fuck we're going to get back to the table and negotiate figure this out but now we don't know what to do because what are you what is what is Kyle here and just like same rubbings or like anything more concrete to like you know so. I know somebody who's associated with the team and they're hearing it from both ends finance guy and then also just like rumblings within the front office or wherever fuck tiki barber fuck you tiki barber. It's your fucking fault. I'm sorry Kevin you open your stupid fucking mouth. You got my hopes up for fucking nothing and they probably would have just privately continued to negotiate and figure this all out and now that it's more like it has to happen now. I'm sure it changes the the whole room that the vibe and the timeline fuck you tiki barber and fuck you Jeff Wilpon. Sorry Kevin Sorry Kevin it we just we just need to hold out a little bit of hope. I mean it's supposed to happen five years from now. There's there's still time still time there. A billionaires like Steve Cohen he- he- might just his ego might kick and be like no no no no no no well. Well I feel like it's like no this shit's mind the wilpon stink. This is mine. I have more money than you have more power than you. I have less morals and you. This is my shit. It's going to be some game of thrones stuff that's going to happen. I think about it this way Kevin Casey but it's trying to it really turns you down and tell you. Hey we're getting a divorce in five years it's like there's still time to figure this out probably not but maybe there is always of divorced. No probably in fact to figure it out jared. Let's say in fact that's a terrible analogy because it would probably get worse in five years. Oh fuck in each other's minds you know if mom and dad are getting to the point where they have to tell their children and they're divorcing. There's probably no melanoma you don't tell you you don't tell the kids until it's officially fucking divorced. I vowed owed one of my friends from home. Their parents told him they were getting a divorce and they didn't get divorced their miserable but they didn't get divorced. Well Yeah I mean that's the thing is say eighty that there's still the if I go back to my normal misery. I'd be okay with it. I can't go back after getting a Kevin's basically like a lottery ticket. And he was guaranteed guaranteed three hundred and sixty million dollars and then we went to cash. And they're like Oh you're actually off by one yes exact- sorry about that numbers right like the lottery one from his defunct defunct now just like you can't get. It is just an elaborate hoax. Do you think you're having a worse than me. I mean broken rib. Oh for sure. You're having and worst stadium. Fuck and broken wrist bracket it's well. It's fractured it's fractured. Fractured Rib. Minor fracture contusion. Can I don't know what the like like the past tense. Verb of that is. I know you maintain that it was just because of like this is dumb drunk injury at the age of one thousand tough. I'm not saying the alcohol had nothing to do with it. But I will contend that the first of all those tile floors in Miami. We're very sorry. Gazza saying he got out of the shower like the first morning it was. Aaron almost slipped when we were at eleven that night it was not the monsoon of Friday night but it was pretty close and Gaz also told me today that he heard Lightening Strike our pool. Well I don't know how you can hear something like that but I feel like that's pretty serious so the fact is yes I was out until four. AM At eleven. And I had been drinking all night but that that doesn't change the fact that my entire hotel room had flooded and those doors were like trying to slam five hundred pound doors. That's not I wasn't a WIMP. Doing heavy heavy doors locked in the cases window. Your it was the day after. She broke her ribs. Well was fractured it via whatever fractured your red issues. Like yeah like I'm up on my roof. We're watching the DOC. If you WANNA come up and I was walking through her room like looking at my phone and I was like well fuck Forehead right in the because I wasn't going to leave the door open anymore because I was scared that it would happen again but the fact is is there are three options of that fall because I cannot say this enough when my legs went out from behind me like it was one of those like full just like right there if that railing of that sliding door wasn't there and it would have caught my chest. It would have been my face that no teeth broken. No teeth I mean. It was full as a timber tree falling on its face. The other option would have been unheard if yeah if the railing was a little bit lower on my body. It would've been my boobs very problematic fair and surgery. I think that would've been a good thing. No if you pop your tit man do their right of that day. Replace them every ten years. She's at like ten. We're we're not getting into that. WE'RE NOT GONNA get into that but it would not have been good because then that starts like any time you see something like that happened. Then it starts like health we whatever leaks and you can You could probably sue the company that did faulty boobs or you can do the fucking hotel. No it was definitely my fault. I mean I I left the door open. I was drunk. I should have been a lawyer in another life. I mean really I say I will admit when I mean everybody knows I admit when I drink I think that this injury was seventy percent tile floor soaking wet and thirty percent alcohol. Yeah I'll give you I. Also I also thought about this. If I wasn't drunk I might even more injured because I would have been like trying to myself. I was getting everyone's times. They say it's better to just kind of be like Lucy. I had a bag of salt and vinegar chips in one hand trying to close the door at the other their chips everywhere I also bought out a little bit more because my blood was thinner but I started noticing a little bit more every day that this was not just a bruise hurt a little bit. It went in a day and she looks like you've just been dealing with a fractured ribbon. Contusion do anything which is bullshit mobilized they they just give you a little little bit stronger medicine than you can get over the counter and tell you to put these medicated patches on it and just not do anything for like four to six weeks with your upper body. She was like giving tigger. Did the broke broke. His revenue just wore bulletproof vest in the rain. That's I knew something couldn't have been completely broken because I can still move my arm around and night but then like just having a lift myself up was a lot harder than I thought she was. Just don't do that more. So what do you mean how am I gonNA get out of bed how somebody can have to come live with me and put my clothes on. She's like don't lift. If you're on your left arm over your head. How am I supposed to put a shirt on you can finagle? Is You know how hard it is. Yeah Florida's behind asp pants with this rib broken doc in or whatever it is going to be fought I tried. It is myself into one of my favorite pairs of Yoga Pants. And I couldn't because as I couldn't lift it over my ass with my left arm. Do you know how I what am I supposed to do. You're going to have to wear like pajamas. You gotta just wear like higher dress. Be careful you're gonNA fucking case official dresser. No no no no. I'm I'm not taking applications here. I just might have to do I it is I do. I just got a tweet hockey tough. I don't feel like I would be somebody that would fracture ribbon like like sit on it for six days. I'm kind of proud of my. She just told me we have an upper body injury off style questionable. It's Disgusting Looking Bruise. My armpit it is swollen because apparently yeah because apparently he's on the inside Bruce on outside and inside I am but like now my arm. My underarms hurt because the one because it's like Also like an inflamed muscle. I'm like you know maybe if I just close my door is when the minimum. I don't follow that often when I'm drunk. I mean every once when I like fall on my ass or whatever but like I never fall fell sober at the gym off of the Vigneault vigneault little shit. Yeah it's trying to obtain footage of someone else to ask the background. I think that they will. I think it was also. They're worried they get sued. You'd say if I promise to sign something I won't I just WANNA see my clumsy lasko. I mean because that one was like one hundred legs. Lincoln athletes who've done a snapshot take take on that baggage. You had had back extension fails in the gym on snapchat and every time I do take just getting angrier that they didn't give it to me with a broken rib or fractured. I don't want to say broken because it's not fully broken fractured in. But that's what I'm using. They can give you. They can't do anything about it. Yeah I mean what am I supposed to do. I gladly take physical pain over this emotional thing. I would to be honest. I mean it's a good story if someone could break my ribs to take away like the red talks investigation and Alex Cora getting fired let them break all my road take them all all my ribs. Kilmer he'll kill me and let them. That's when the guy would out probably endure just about any physical injury. That would eventually like recover from if I could bring Alexkor back manager. I feel like physical pain that like you said that you can recover from you. Know you're going. Okay okay. It's waylon emotional. Yeah no it's like whenever you get like really really dumped and you can like start to like physically feel your heart. That's nothing compared to the emotional stuff. Talkin Park Yeah but I'm a clown for not going until today. I like to point that out after the break. I think I got some good news for you. Nothing will help us today there. Now don't fuck in toy like if someone saying don't worry it's back it's just it's just like it's something that would give you hope all right all right and then back Jarrett's GonNa help me Out and you drop your own nuke Tuesday new or start to fucking put your finger on the trigger all right. We're back after the break This morning Kevin Kevin Kevin Kevin Heaven. You're just ridiculously stupid. Welcome welcome welcome. welcome your breath. It's Friday we all got fake jobs. We barely got should do man. There's been a lot of good news flying around these parts. Recently Dave's one hundred million dollar man. I feel like Yankee fans have been happy about all sorts of shit with their rivals mass pitcher they signed but nobody. Oh Buddy is having a better week than your boy. Trent trend is in the building. Big Daddy Iowa here Hello Aka K.. A. Luggage fucking guy. And now I mean I don't. I don't even know which. which is the bigger accomplishment? Luggage guy in the bachelor getting this. Tom Brady he quote tweet which just popped off about eight minutes ago and his poppin. Oh Yeah it's good. It just happened for us so four. Play our twitter account at four play. pod follow on twitter there the pelvic floor on this week. So there's a lot of celebrities and athletes that play and Peyton manning is playing so he just hit a shot and hit a close to the pen and we tweeted it and said Brady would have sunk this just a little chirp and Tom Brady Superbowl winning quarterback and won six of them casually as he said not true. Payton is the Gulf right now. He's had much more practice. These past few years I bohm in the he wasn't tagged in the League at TB twelve it was just break just brady would have sunk this and somehow brady eighty or his team came across it and whatever however comes. I don't care if the name on the on the handle. Is Tom Brady. That's what matters worse we're at about twenty thousand likes and thirteen minutes. Tom Brady needle especially when he's chirping. PEYTON manning followers right. Now keep an eye on that. I feel like it's impossible. You can go super super viral. These people don't follow as soon as it happened. I wrote down. How many four followers? So I'll let you know once I think if you're if like a- like a foreplay account you might grab followers versus a personal account. I think because when you go by somebody who will go viral now and it's just like well. That was a funny joke but I don't need to follow every day but if this is like okay. This is golf account. I'm going to get like interesting golf. It's just like an accurate. If you look at our tweets videos shout out to our producer Jake I gotta give him a shadow. That was his tweet he was. He's been tween often to Brady's producers who there is a producer right here. I think I think Brady definitely has a team to yeah to like. Put it in front of his face and behave. Just see this and then like I bet you Tom Brady says I don't know I was wondering about that very funny. He's Icefield witty. Sometimes I feel like it's him other times I feel like enhanced clearly not I'll successful dashing dashing dress very well I bet there are times when he'll duck and be like I got something maybe WanNa see about that but and but this one I also feel like maybe it is him because I don't know if if I was tweeting four somebody I don't know if I would take shots at people might not want like Peyton manning beef on his hands right. We talked about that whenever he commented on the seating season like there's no way that somebody that has access to his twitter account or is instagram account is just out there commenting on ass eating season. Four Tom Brady. Who thought that was Tom Brady yet? It has to be. You don't know sixer bulls in some aspects. No not yeah he did that lose your point. Were nobody somebody who was logged into the wrong account. Tom Brady Ways buttoned up. I don't think he said I like asked eating season. He commented on an ASS eating season post. That was funny. He don't reset reset Hashtag. Ask heating season did he. Are you sure I forget what he said she said it and I know that what he said came off his approval for asking right. But I don't think we got straight upset it also if you are an intern or social media person for Tom Brady. You're not tweeting that or commenting on instagram without his approved. So you're sitting Kevin that someone it was still logged in forgot to switch over said that and then we're like well. I guess Tom Brady is just an Aston Guy. Now pretty close. We never said anything all right. But I mean that would be like saying marina or Frankie or whoever has access to Dave's account could just go do that on their own like no they are strictly for business. If Dave wants to say something funny on social media he has to do it himself so if Tom Brady went to say something funny he's doing it on his own right but I just I. I think that they were thinking. They were on their power and law. The Tom Brady Tom. Brady's clarify just to clarify the eseding thing. He responded to one of our posts that was in reference to and. Yeah well he said Yup he never adding season couch right right. That's what I thought. It was just like a very casual response to what we saw was like. He can do whatever he wants. He's Tom Brady. Yeah I I don't know that one still puzzles me. 'cause he's just never even you know he's but Kevin courses does but he's like so captain America like never give anybody you any other inclination gets like an interview with Tom Brady. That's gotTa be question number one area. What are your opinions on eating? But we know because that's all star start with a comment that our ass eating season posts and then how do you feel about CETACEA correct. The also is weird to me. Because like there's there's been some jokes like that but then there was also the emails that came out during deflategate which were very much like private to his father being like Peyton done. It's over for him so they're always he's like. Yeah we're you know we're like friends more like professional like rivals. It's all good but it just can't be no natural and you can't get to that level without despising raising everyone else. Who got six and pains one? It's like why are people even fucking comparing and even if you and if you are Payton you're like fuck doc. This guy he's got sick and even if you like the person personally when all of the fans are doing like the the chirping for you you just get like you take sides. Do you know what I mean. Hundred Percent Lebron Koby were pretty close and that happens a lot Lebron Kobe's but people compare compare them all the time. Yeah the same way that they're also like holding Jordan when he came in the League feel like people are. There's plenty on team Mamba. You know what I mean. The the problem was when it was like it's not you anymore. It's definitely Tom Brady. You know what I mean like that thing. It's so one sided. Yeah yeah paid. Probably doesn't I'm Tom Brady Payton he's good on SNL but when it comes down to when it's like who's Tom Yen for a long time it was even but then It's time to practice. Yeah what a great shirt. This was gonNA share that tweet. I'm excited about it. Oh it's because it's not only the fact that he quote tweeted you guys. It was how good it's actually tweet thrown a this conversation and the Brady versus manning. Debate reminds me of we had an episode of the Yak where it was supposed to be a holiday but we didn't get it off so we took the Ger. This is at the old office we took the Jerseys Aziz off the wall and stuff them in the cracks the doors and then baked the radio room and I was so high that I didn't be like twenty. He minutes Dan. What do you think about Payton's legacy and I was just like like my brain couldn't get my mouth? It's an open and have words come out and I was like I know what I want to say but if I open my mouth and I was like. I don't know what's going to come out dude. We went to dinner after that. Say A fucking world. Yeah it was me you wipe. Who Back in the PK? Crew every Friday seeping shout out. Jared just didn't say a fucking blaze you you get that high I go to sleep. My brain candy live smoke that often at all like I have a pen that I rarely used but like is like actually like smoking weed. I don't do that very often all just hot box. That tiny yes we duffed jerseys under the cracks of the doors and the baked the whole Radio Room and smokes folks for the whole hour round a squaws it a good show. Oh my God like it was great. Trust this guy doesn't remember when they have like the camera and like the corner. It was just like we were doing radio show in a cloud. You're just like a white cloud that we were doing the show. I'm like a legit goldfish all trash. What'd you say like what? What was the question? I won't forget in a matter of seconds. I think I like the idea of. We'd more than I like smoking weed because I'll I'll get I'll get the we'd now like rolling. I'll be like fucking exciting. I smoke and I'm like I'm GonNa die some harshest like yeah like crazy horse people who can smoke weed everyday and just function during the regular sized edible every day about calling the cops. Yeah I think he did a small amount but he was like. Yeah like on days that I have to edit a lot or I'm just gonNa like sitting there. I know I'm really really high when I get very concerned about the volume of my television. I'm like I always think like my neighbors are GONNA hit. It'd be on like three or four back to hit that down a couple more. Knock out super polite. I live with Bobby Fox. Obviously I'm always like I wonder if he doesn't want to hear what I'm watching the centrally on mute. And it's like I'm just GonNa can't even here when I was little when I was young. I didn't understand when people said that. You get paranoid Loyd. I thought I thought that meant you like paranoid about like drugs like the cops arrested for the smoking weed. A ball of paranoia of like I'm going to whatever ever thought enters your mind you're paranoid about that is just about like you're saying the cops. It's every leaving right now are getting paranoid about like the crow virus. When they're hi Yo? I'm telling you paranoid I'm not stoned. Right fucking there's a cruise ship just chilling right now in the Hudson off. Yeah well there was. There was one. That's been doing a little while but this one's like brand new. I'm all for it. He'd been awaited story China neighbor. I actually Oh the one that rob your and into the elevator yes arrive. You'll be able to tell us right better. But he essentially ran into a guy on the elevator. Yeah if you can grab all at intelligence you guys got his neighbor but like in regards to the corona virus. I think it might be old. Yeah Yeah because I can see you know I if you're old to. There's like some Asian racism going Jon Allen Wars and whatnot but now it's like give them any reason and you and you start some fear mongering and you make these people they switch which shit sure that found it died now. I have a big say there was like there was like a rumors that he was dead. And no he wasn't and now confirmed that he is and there was also rumors that they might have like Epstein them like they killed him because he came out. Oh really because he revealed it. Yeah I guess they killed them and Trish. He died from the virus. It yeah you can speed on us Fox to the billing you gotTa Racist Neighbor. Oh my God yeah. Trend said he was like rob. Bob Gets better so on radio right now. Maybe the first time ever a moment so I get on my elevator on Sunday. No big deal. We have an elevator throw. Why twenty four hour doorman? WHOA no wake loves? Yeah that'd be desert. inbox box that I can like put like notes and be like please just give him white. Gloves don't tip them for Christmas. Get on it's coming from above our floor and there's an old man on the elevators super tall probably like six four maybe eighty years old hunched over bundled for the apocalypse has gloves Zahn hat. The whole Shebang. He has floor to push so I pushed the lobby button and he goes. You should be careful those buttons you know and I was like why back and he goes the corona and I was like. Oh yeah like. I don't even know if he was kidding. Right just being friendly making conversation in the elevator and he goes we do live near the UN n.. which we do and has a good point and I just wanted to be done with this conversation gets off a floor? Do he goes to get off and shit you not. He turns just before he leaves and he goes. There's Chinese people on my floor. That's what I'm trying to get out here some data and I like had like a visceral like Oh my God God. You're a racist old man but yeah it was. It certainly made my Sunday experience a lot. Better Yeah Chinese you got grown virus facts period. That's it all doing all never even been to China. Maybe they have it for like as American as you are. I mean why is that GonNa come from the roof provide ever thing. That didn't understand but I don't think he was up on the roof. I think he was on like another level. I think maybe he's got a racist Old Lady. Iran Tom Brady threw it. My next question is why we have so many old people living in are building. I bet they're like they're all friends with each other. They all visit each other's apartment racism meeting in in old people homes. They always have I guess. Td outbreaks because all the Ohio. It's like fucking. Yeah so if you got a bunch of big now like all of them but there are several cases of outbreaks in these ways and it's like a nose being yeah like well you know we got nothing else out of the nurses not stop that at some point in your supply. I don't WanNA stop it. You know what I mean. It's like how how do they go talk. What I'm asking probably nighttime won't to wake up? You know like during the during during during the day like I would think they're always retirement places in nursing homes are different but aren't there always nurses like twenty four. I'm sure that some of them are more like controlled and other six. PM The late late night after real fortunate after the early bird special working on the end of this they might like you see stories about like daycare. People putting kid fistfights together together. They probably do it. These are like these to put them together like pimps. Yes I liked. What was a bigger moment better moment? Trent luggage guy or Bob Fox Connor McGregor like head nods or shoutouts. You you've had multiple McGregor ones now. Let's say let's say outside the courthouse. Was it that was that was a big one. The biggest one knows when when he likes shouted me out when it's on stage when he was like Robbie woke up because I think it was just like. Oh this is a fan right. If any new news you yeah versus luggage. I tried to answer. I think like I think because we knew the Bob was like in the circle and we knew that he was out there for for that reason versus like way. No one knew that Trent was both of them work in Seoul heart boating two year. I think they've been equally as impressive. Recive surprise of seeing it. Like oh the fact that you knew trump was gonna beyond you mean neuronal. Didn't renew no no. He means the complete opposite. Yeah Trent Whoa that it was on a national television. Yeah wasn't wasn't guaranteed like I actually knew he did it and I was like when this happens at Eh Barstool like new. Not everyone at Borstal knew it was happening at least that I was such a big like. Oh my God this guy. Did you say today might have known I would say when. When did I say the toll? I did not say that right so when when when it happened you gonNA have no. I knew I know producer. Reach out to me. A couple of weeks ago was like because I knew I was going to freighter cameras rolling and Shit like so you knew it was gonna be that night. Yes law did not help look did not know I was. I went out for the first time in like two and a half years and I ah did you know he was doing it at all. I knew I didn't know that was having that night. But well He. He had come to me when I was materializing because he had to travel multiple places and it was like like a whole like. Yeah but they have a rhyme or reason of who you told I think is at some point. I told a very small amount of people and then everyone close to. This is not in terms of like that. They would gossip each other but literally proximity to each other. Whether it'd be like what's going on and you just kind of tell them but like I would say in total at Max like ten People Newton Luckily nobody nobody fucking anything. Everyone was great who I told so it was like yeah. It was a big surprise. I was happy that people caught it like that. One guy that you re tweeted. who was was like his right because like the best I watched the bachelor but like by our two and a half? I'm like all right. It's kind of on in the background and I could easily miss. You know a quick luggage guy but so many people saw it and like rewound like a video is my favorite so genuinely knew he knew so he was one of the people who knew but he genuinely forgotten. Now I mean if it has to do with I told him number and he's not going to remember something which I was i. I was grateful for because he speaks his mind all the time so he could have said on radio so I was glad it was completely out of sight out of mind right. Didn't say and then he had his own thing going on with with her so he was he was a good night. All around. 'cause I know even Like after it happened you were kind of like. It's okay right as long as as happy like we're going I never. Everyone was like as long as he's happy. That's all that matters. That's still that way and it will always be that way. But he was all of us. Do the greatest thing you've ever done and like the Dana White Office door remember. We're coming back and being like I hope that's okay allowed happy. That's it wasn't long enough. He's like he thought it was funny. And that's it who cares. I feel like it's really kind kind of a draw for me because it seemed like lifelong dreams basically in ensure of your like dedicated obsessed has the edge just for being on national like Ah just like happening and people being what honestly when you think about Bachelor Ratings I mean. Isn't it like thirty million people a week now. There's a lot I don't know the exact the number but it's a very large number of people as you see from my story. Because I shared everybody was very funny but also went so viral and people started falling Barstools AH digital TV. I mean you brought attention to Barcelo. People had no idea who we were because you went viral. Because you've got some apartments are sleds. Yeah we got the fucking rocket. WHO's an he's always over so he's there superbowl time? Yeah yeah that was. That was nice. You guys do a super bowl party. How was it was private? Apparently did you guys watch it here. fucking death box here on my phone for checking-in yeah I mean I. I would rather go on. Our apartment door is always open to Kevin clancy. Okay no doubt about it. Okay we had TACO Bell. I they did Chinese food. They were worried to order it. Because of the Corona Fox. You say I might come over. It might not because you got Chinese. People just can't be happy that Dr Oz told us in Miami that there is a shortage of masks in the world. Like the real masks and not just little Dr Ones Ones. That have like the a gas mask. Firing Jack. Those masks doctors there are no more of the world now. Drivers Uber drivers are wearing these masks. And like I've had a little cough while it was like I get in to a fucking Uber. Her and then my fucking driver has this mask on. And that's a fucking one star. That's like dude. I look around the call rolling fucking it is I mean I would. I don't think I would drive my uber. I think a big iron shut down for a few days. I mean at the same time I get on the subway. All the time showed that so if if we do get a year. We're all fucked like that. I had a cab driver told me the other day in New York. Whenever we were coming home from the airport he was like yeah? We just got an alert. A yellow cab. BLURT that there's a case of the krona virus in a taxi driver Ghazipur so I don't believe that there's yellow cab alerts. I don't believe that ever yellow cab guy is getting an alert right now so I feel like we might know. No that if there was a case in Manhattan I mean. It's just I the hysteria every time you can take it to the bank and I'm sure there is somebody profiting every time. The pharmaceutical companies or or something manufacturers. I mean it's just GonNa be an converts. Eight hundred people have died from this but like it in the in the city in China where it's like the central point of it it's like eleven million people a Lars Model Senate. I know but a lot of people are saying that China's like not not really reporting what's up if you're GONNA do Norte Zombie virus. I hate that you just get sick and Zombie. That's like I feel like this is how it starts though like they do that. Zombie like mad cow disease and then morphs into something. That's actually because this when they're saying you might not even know you have it which which means you could be carrying it for weeks and weeks damn lays dormant and they just catch the flu and all of a sudden you're dead like you can just be walking around with. We can have it right now. We're on that crucial. And they're not letting you off probably give it ten days before I kill. All the thing is where he kills him. I think it'd be less the limited shit you know what I mean like if I if I if I was say we went down to Miami and it was like you can't leave. You got stay in your hotel on. It's bad you know what I mean like living here on the balcony whatever cruise ship not too great. You know this rooms are tiny rooms. Limited like access to all all sorts of Shit. How many days I don't know I think this one's like only like a day right now? There was one that was like while but brings out to him right. I Yeah I would hold talking. Yeah Hey we'll put them in quarantine till they die but drinking your home piss legitimately like I I'm not a A never by all hysteria with these things but also GonNa China right now precautions you can take simply avoided totally like ricefields of China or you buy the more modern places but also just don't just don't go guy he's like. I'm not going back. I I mean was upset about that I think Dave is like he he. I think they've said he's just choosing to go back. He can go back if he wants to. A boondoggle or something like Oh. He just doesn't WANNA go back. Go Back Donny is. He's a wild one man. Just now I'm going to go live in a weird weird places videos of him with the the monkees outside of the hot tub. The hot springs is one of the funniest things I mean. He is a trip. But I even if you think you're safe and like there's probably lot of places you are. You might not get back in or something like other people's hysteria and not necessarily just your own right. Did you see the video that he posted like what the streets look like in the city that he lives in. No it is greasy. It's nobody's there it's as populated as Manhattan and like it's just a ghost was town meaning. They're all just sitting inside. I'm sure it's a little bit of both but yeah breaks you're using. That's what I was about. Add on I think they using that the craziest surveillance technology snipe people on the streets. And if you're on the streets you like actually faulk police. You're not going to work. They're not going grocery store. It's not going to school. Oh so I can't tell if this is like different or if as always it's like it's social media's bigger and we're everywhere like did this happen for the bird flu over over there haven't for SARS over there like this is like a month ago at this point maybe weeks when they were zapping everybody doing the temperature to start to like there was a mall temperature pitcher before you can even walk into work and I'm thinking like a wow. I've never seen that before but it may have happened before we didn't see it before this I feel like I would. I would have seen on the news or heard about down hull city. Yeah like the last time so different again. Doctor is an expert in all things said that this is not like that bad but that it. It's a good like we better train up on that to be when we saw like the idea of the masks being not being found in Chile. You can't get those he's if we ever. I did have like a big epidemic fucked because the the whole thing was every every hundred years on the twenties is like yeah so like seventeen. Seventeen twenty was the black play scenes. Twenty was the Spanish flu. Nineteen twenty was like on a polio uh-huh or small by something like something relatively modern now is twenty twenty and there's this this virus floating around so that makes me the biggest believer right there to Nielsen so say twenty percent of the population. We'll get wiped out. That's what the yeah usually these every hundred years on the twentieth. You know cuts down. No I don't leave my apartment so I do like my chances I wash my hands obsessively and I still get sick more than anyone else that I personally say that. If you can over wash wash your hands push yourself just doesn't go anywhere where there's germs. I come in here say that. But because he plays baseball teams you the factory true nature of being in Manhattan. I feel you don't yeah but he doesn't walk anywhere he doesn't get on the subway anywhere he doesn't it's like He. He's sheltered in his apartment and he comes here. I will say here's disgusting. Yeah we are. These microphones that my face is right up next to is bucking Scott. I know but like you know whatever man I'm Plaid mankind grown every once in a while. I'll come in and Clean Mike and I also call a little bit. Everybody in your beard right like there was one time that I use that microphone booking bits and pieces for me rubbing his subpoenas at home that is whenever you like hook up with people. You're sharing their germs right down to the present hooking up with figuring out there doing yeah you would think twice about it like he won't even share his food or drink with anybody but then he's out here like hooking up with people makes I would that. That is true like if if if I was on a date with a girl and she wanted like a bite of my ice cream be like fuck no and then I just go liquor mouth like an hour later. Thank Oh you can't touch my fries but turn around but my my tummy your buck. Yeah I probably that's how these things like the downfall of you. That's how twenty percent gets down where they'll be like there's a huge virus and everyone's like cleaning their hands and ship and then they get horny and it's like well okay. Whatever fucking percent of the dead? I don't anyway so come on. Let's hit our first break. You guys welcome cigarette if you want. I don't carry the way We for our second half hour. Six office take over on. They try to swallow me copy but for the money ain't never won attention so I don't pay attention to commerce and all the Mitch's Stacey my pitch perfect gorgeous or just make them drop dead showy you all my attention as tensions stay in the kitchen. Eighteen cooking fever. Join our play is open it up with drake Waymo Carl is one of the members of south. Sure you really yeah. He's in this. We know who migos says because Heath timber used to come out to one of their songs. There's always gonNA everything leads back to baseball. Video of Drake beaver. Quayle playing ball. And I. It's like being famous. Is the kind of like the worst like these key play basketball. Yeah and everyone's like critiquing their game and like making fun of them. They're all perfectly normal like pickup basketball. Well players like they're not basketball player. Yeah they're just like guys playing basketball and like the it's like a highlight reel so like it's them hitting jumpers there's like quavos a lefty and Kinda has like a awkward jump shot like snow sheds them you know and I think we're playing with his shirt off is is just confusing. Whatever you want but like when you're on the court with the other guys who are also famous and you're like no one else's playing skins but no-one no one playing is well drake? I guess I forgot drake was there. Yeah I'm Scott Clothes on I forgot drake was there. Yeah he can do do whatever he wants them to send. You're opening yourself up wearing the drew like drake was wearing drew merchandise. So it's basically like he's supporting whatever. I'll just be shirtless. Yeah it's funny watching the news play because he is like tiny guys kind of shoots like a little kid does like draining draining. Always in tiny Blake Doc. I don't know five years ago. He was tiny but toned and defined. And now he's tiny and frail. Well he was. He he got kinda jacked for the Calvin Klein stuff purpose in great shape. Oh yeah then. Who knows what's best what happened to all right around? The room was like always tweaking on drugs. Looks like frail when we're in shed but it's like playing basketball team alone. Although I think the one one account that made it go viral. I think jokingly was like these guys can like ball for real and everyone know they can kind of joke but although God it's want to play basketball I mean beaver was draining them. Yeah highlight reel every man. Dan Complaining. They were traveling too much. Who Come on up? Doesn't he play. Isn't it like a celebrity usually the NBA played in the past. I don't know if it's good. Yeah I mean they're all just like a smooth. He just wants to play basketball. That song is good. Though you can agree grrrrrreat terrible. The only part of that song heard is what we just heard coming in here and it's pretty good. It's like you know what it is a lesser version of the other Bieber enqueso songs. Bolan ever. You know what I mean. Yeah Yeah it's just more armies on our texting this morning because as soon as I woke up and thought it was an appropriate time to which I guess you're much I saw it. I saw you run down. The other day was just down yesterday. No we're talking about you because of how you You basically approve. Everyone's vacation now and improve outcomes approved Croatia. Do you deny people. ooh when I'm told to. Yes okay but you'll never make the call like now you have in your way. I can't say on I was saying like I. Am I do that. You basically produce every fucking show on Sirius. Now I mean. You're the Jack of all trades Jay and parcel. You're sneaky one of the most important important powerful people here. I wouldn't go that far. Have I denied someone a vacation. Maybe you have you have a card company cards. No that's that's There it was a time I remember when like Caleb was new like he and like Buddha ban and all the guys. They traveled a lot so they have it. But I remember being like what the fuck is going on here. I gotta give me one of those things. Yeah do you have one no. I've never had one. I'm GonNa ask what you have never had a company car I mean we're we're fucking now fuck it takes to get one and I am on. There's also a lot tighter these days. Don't you Kinda like own equity kind of rolling definitely do. It's fucking wild. There are a lot harder to get these days than they were. Yeah I probably have someone that doesn't have one. I probably have one of the best cases for one like we traveled to travel. Yeah I mean I also just I never put in my expenses which I mean neither keep sending us are doing it so I just eat it like Brennan like regard to eat like we're on the road or something like show pay out of pocket and then show expense it or if it's just me and brings not they're like Miami I- expense nothing. La when she paid for everything all all of our meals there. And I told you there. Is that hotel that we stayed at when we went to L. A.. Where after our stay they charge us like the the scenery convenience fee it was like one hundred sixty sixty three dollars like on top of it was Barstool paid for the hotel for the four days that we were there and then every night they charge like forty five ninety nine for like the location fee fee or whatever and I just pay that and I'd never expensive? Yeah I forgot that like our card was down at the latest Miami trip. So I'm like eating out of the mini bar code. Thanks the second although of cultural weekends we don't pay for anything. It's Dave's there so he just runs everything. But if I'm on the road when there's not a company called around I'm definitely excited. I mean like everybody else does. We're just saying I need somebody so easy to do that. And like the monthly phone that I feel like I just take advantage of it in fucking. Get them to pay. But it's like you need to eat whether you're whether I was at home or in Miami I'm GONNA pay to eat right so I feel like I shouldn't take the perks all you get X.. Amount of money for this day. Use It right now I get it. I'm just saying I. Eight hundred three eight five. I stole the phone number Kyle from New Jersey's on it was okay. You guys just open an ally Kevin. I was watching The murder of Lacy Peterson last night. Free Free Scott Frank Scott. No there was no evidence at all. The I will say this There's one thing that they left out the pliers it's either on or warehouse. Had her hair on it. And they kind of just gloss over that fact I was like. That's Kinda weird. That was suspect but honestly the rest of it. None of it. None of it is concrete. That guy was getting rid of like the forming at the end of the fingers. 'cause he was like Oh we have to go over this and given a new chick team and said Obviously Ashley is guilty. I know at the very the very least you should. They got like a mistrial. That guy was not likeable. Didn't have a good marriage. He wanted to go with his new girlfriend. Right and people didn't like that fact. Unbelievable Free Scott Man and you know what else didn't help very end. Those the the people who formed the spot team discussion the appeal to those people who are such assholes that made me want to be like I leave him in jail. You're not helping the cause at all. We Got Thomas. South Carolina was Tommy Thir- Casey. I'm in my personal hell down here originally from New Jersey Big Fan and Surrounded by braves fans ooh myself at work work. Yeah that's not good. Things are not good right now. Tom Jeff Wilpon is discriminating. No no he's he. He is the worst sports figure in fucking history going to stretch. But I honestly mean you'd think think of the stories of you know when when the Brooklyn dodgers up in laughed and who was an art modell and the dead of night move the browns and all these things released on Donna level. Yeah he's he's on that level what he did is absolutely unforgivable. It should absolutely criminal. It should rob Manfred. Should step in and stop it now that we know the details and Uncle Stevie has finally spoken which was great by the way. Did you hear that subtle. Paint him as I've got just fucking ridiculous. That's why his quote was so funny he goes. He was like as a as a minority owner. I look forward to a somebody coming in with a higher bid being like no one's ever GonNa at this point six billion you fucking asshole. I forget who had the report yesterday but there is someone that was like Cohen is going to have a very tough time like buying another her. So ranch is not noted that and he is has exposed himself as the biggest wilpon Schill. I thought you said Yang Lanny. I actually he didn't know He. I follow certain beat reporters. He was not one of them but when I started to see yes why perhaps and that would explain it that he basically it works for the company for every every tweet response from the mets twitter. People that I follow or like go fucking Blow Jeff you if we're thinking of the same guy. This guy carries as the Yankees water to hugh like big time. Like anytime there's like like I'll tweet something about the Yankees cheating and stuff like he immediately just like well. Aw got this fucking like report here. Dope didn't happen didn't happen like he's all over immediately. I guess the problem now is that this is like a national story. There are probably non mets fans who are taking note and they don't quite know like when Dave is trolling and he's like what do you mean they bought. They got suspect. There's probably going to baseball all fans out there doing that. Who now actually believe it when it's like if you're paying any attention about any of the business doings of the Wilpon of the past two decades you know that there is one guilty party here and it's fucking wilpon and I don't know what happened like Fred Fred? Fred knows. What's up Fred? He's getting old and Fred was like we got to solve a team and runs later. It's Japanese fucking calling the shots and it doesn't make any goddamn sense and the ticker though the booking the icing ACO kate was Jeff. wilpon demanding continued use of the prided jet. which was the fucking thing that the wilpon balked at when rod wanted to sign with the Mazzarella? Too many perks like the jet. Fuck you jeff. Who in the world is going to buy this team? If you don't go away. They're looking at. They're still looking to sell. They're going to go to auction now with the fucking investment bank. Guess who works for them fucking Bradley Wilpon. It's all just one big wilpon. Uh Jerk off fucking circle jerk. Who is going to buy this team if you if it sounds like Jeff what bombs gonNA leave screw question? Kevin Clem told me when he was buying a house that the previous owners were like. Yeah like you got yourself a deal. Here's the problem though. We gotta stay for six more months. We can't move out in you know we need sex more money. It was like no I just bought the house. It's now mine I get to live there. Get the fuck out. Why would Steve Go? And let you hang around especially when Jeff Wilpon and is a noted Ma. It felt like a all right. You know you're a great like you're a great baseball mind or institution and we'll see like Grace Mugabe. Alex senior roles you're a fucking buffoon you're regarded as one of the dumbest people in all of sports. And you want to hang around for longer than Steve. Lowery agreed to five thaking years like he already did that. He was already like all right. Fine Idiot I'll give you five fucking years. Here's a half a decade and that wasn't good enough who was going to buy it for for more than a billion dollars. You fucking Kim Moron. That's why his tweet is so funny. Even say he was a statement that is being tweeted and it was like I mean I read it. Verbatim ta percent something like it was just so perfect. It was kind of like the Tom. Brady Peyton Manning tweet where there was just so much pettiness in it that it was for services kicked eight percent as an eight percent holder. I'm looking forward to a higher bid for the dam like did you see this is getting uglier. What breaking it's getting Uglier Wilpon? MLB are looking to salt. The Earth. On Steve Cohen's future as a team owner. Yes so that was the other thing you know. He's going to have a real hard time buying in another team fucking really because the first team that needs the money who does sell is going to want to go to the guy who's literally richer than anyone else in the fucking sport Lord. I would gladly sell my team to see Steve. Cohen is going to come in and be like he's going to put the mets on a national or wherever routinely buys on like a national sports map. Not just baseball. It's GonNa be like if he has his way. It'll be like having another yankees like I want to know what what went down. Why would the least poorly that not only did this deal fall apart? But they're basically trying to say that he'll never even own another franchise if you WanNa because the Wilpon somehow have the front office of baseball in their Franken back pocket when it was bud ceiling. I understood it but ceiling was a thousand years old. Hitmen Fred Wilpon just boys. It'd be like if bucket me and you if I was the commissioner and you're an owner and you suck that'd be like whatever the rockets fine but he's walking dead now and there's a whole new guy is a whole whole like a perfect opportunity to let's move on from this era of clear mediocrity and incompetence. Let's do it with a guy who is going to like bring more publicity publicity and fame and attention to the sport than anybody else. I mean I can understand the idea like like do you think that Baseball liked George Steinbrenner. I mean they banned him so like wh if they like it in that moment yes obvious today like the storyline and yet the Yankees. He's and Steinbrenner is one of the best. It's ever happened to write like sense. You know we talk about players being larger than life and how that's kind of faded like Steinbrenner wasn't into player but he was larger than life and trouble and yes to the point that they had suspended or even banned him but when he finally did his thing thing and had his way he created a modern day. Ruth Gehrig and Mansell. You know what I mean like. It was the best thing that's ever happened for them to to to lock guy out auto baseball. That's the sort of Shit I hate. When they changed the rules pace of play we gotta get younger? Major moves like that that will change as more like a guy who finds a Derek jeter who creates a Yankees Dynasty. That's what gets you an influx of new fans not tweaking taking the fucking rules. Sharp pitched wall outfield at city. Yeah Shit like that you make the whole experience and like he absolutely would have made flushing like the whole all seen they've always wanted to is just so fucking shortsighted and it's so baseball. Do just side with the mets unfathomable that anybody would ever think. I think that it wasn't the Wilpon salt. Did it ever come out. Why exactly the Wilpon even wanting to sell any like I'd say like a yeah I mean I think that? So they're going to have to have somebody come in. I know that but it's like a dire thing for them. I mean I think it has been dire- for a while. There's there's like talks of how they had to take out a loan own every single year to cover opera so I understand. It's not wanting to give up complete control or whatever but if you're somebody that wants to buy the mets and you just see what happened to Steve Cohen. And you know that's the weapons are going to do. Why the fuck would you even try? Who so they're gonNA find somebody to quote unquote by it and it's going to be like just more like a cash infusion and they still run the show? It's like it's almost like what Penn's doing Barstool acceptive. Dave was a fucking moron. You know like if have you already had like one of the best owners in baseball and you wanted to just investment. Aren't you just keep doing your thing. You know. It's it's letting a complete eightieth pea brain continued to ruin your fucking new two point. Six billion dollar purchase pin is investing in what Dave built himself adding influx of money to to what Dave is already been doing and it has been doing forever whereas Stevie Khan was just going to change the whole thing. What's up ran ran from Mississippi? Just Kinda on my question I was going to ask you about was right what I've been hearing as wanting to sell the team but actually keep control. Uh so so the original deal was we'll give you five years of a a grace period and then he came back and was like no I want. I want more time I want. I want to continue to get paid. He asked for a raise and he wanted to continue the US like all the teams resources. Well then don't sell the fucking team. You don't get to do all that stuff if you're selling team. I got another question for you after that. One hey limited Mississippi it's hard to keep up with the mets to Goodi little better aged twitter and everything but What's a good podcast to listen to kind of? Yeah Yeah Yeah you can listen to my podcast. If you want to listen to the mets. It's called we gotta believe it's me and Clem and if you're interested in more just overall all baseball you can do starting nine and if you're into the red sox you can do section i. I'm not arrestable. Okay you go listen to me and clements called. We gotta believe that guy show keep up good work. Thank you brother we appreciate it. I Love Ran Fred. Wilpon owes in excess of one point. Five billion dollars in sports related. I mean fans are sitting here like if if what is the point of having a commissioner. What is the point of having the League? If you can get away with this shit. How did Frank mccord loses franchise in like two months premature? We don't know if the money's going to here here or there. So you're out you're fucking wos Angeles Franchise. But somehow the mets continued to get away with it. It's fucking sickening deal falls apart. Your deals falling apart. I genuinely feel bad for you. I feel A. You'RE GONNA YOU'RE GONNA get your way here so I do I do I just ask. Because they're coinciding the world will make the joke of like Ha- Kevin Sexual you and meanwhile it's it's more you than Dave. Dave will be happy to so. It's just the same story here. Tom Brady just signed like yes. Massive contract for like a year. That's exactly what's going to happen and it was really what starts making me get scared. That never gonNA see is money because it's just it's just too many things working against me. I think the red sox pulled that deal off saw. They were never prepared for the backlash but not prepared for what the backlash ended up being saw a wiggle room a little way to get out of it and are now leaning into that. Because what if what you're telling me is true. Sure where they're asking for the twins to send more to the dodgers and reasonable just to break it down. Here's here's here's what's happening right now so the red sox and Mookie Betts and David price to the dodgers gers. The dodgers sent Alex Verduga to the Red Sox. The twins get Kenta Maeda from the The dodgers and then the twins send Bruce Dr Grant or all a twenty year old prospect to the Red Sox the red sox look at the medicals for Grad or all and. They're you're like well this sucks. We're not happy with that. So we want another top ten prospects on with Lynn legit. You can't just like his his his physical. Yeah yes sailed it. It's not the physical. It's the pre existing medical records at the twins have looked at that and think that would have like was that I in Lake. Hey we're actually okay with these things but we're going to say we're not because they're yeah I mean like they. I think that was like their first like all right pause because 'cause we saw the backlash right they're supposed to announce the trade on Thursday night. It broke on Wednesday night. Yeah it was supposed to be announced on Thursday night officially and and then Friday there was supposed to be a press conference and the rockets sitting here on his podcast Matt Johnston. It's funny is I was like Yeah mookie Betts fines again. I didn't say I might be someone else. That has a little bit of feel like the Red Sox feel you. Yeah I think this year. You're going to see Alex Cora on the bench and movie betsy outfit so I really Alex Cora's still gonNA get fucked for the Houston stuff so I don't think he's come back this year but I I think there's a real chance that he comes back after he's suspended it'd because if this investigation comes back in the Red Sox and all report so that they didn't find anything if you're a red sox these fucking like high and mighty Red Sox fans like he cheated. I don't WanNa back ACA Mighty Cheer Fuck you cheated with with the Red Sox like if this twenty you think he'll serve his time for the Houston this is what what are they maybe like a year like. Aj Hinge got a year and like Alex. Cora if he didn't do anything with the twenty eight teams like a year maybe a year and a half. Whatever right like you bring Alex cornerback? Cancel all the fucking players were devastated when Cora was gone like players like bogart's endeavors like. Yeah we took huge steps forward because Cora and especially when I I mean a young baseball manager you can have them around for like yeah. Yeah it's not an old guy. You're not a player where the clock is ticking. On you you can just fuck you found yard. Joe Torry Chutian for multiple decades and you know what hysteria all that Shit will come down. Yeah down on even more if this investigation comes out and they're like yeah. We didn't find anything on the two thousand eighteen red sox. They'll still get in trouble for like Houston but didn't do anything with the red sox wound up bringing back.

"Dan. There's too many of you. Thus far too many view. I think anyone puckers lamps and presses it against their bosses buttocks, and then smooch is asking. News. Care for her inexactitude. Show. Wasn't hotshot. I'M GONNA. Tell you something right now. I don't care for you or for the putrid sludge. You're trawling out. Looking. While Scrub You're just absolutely right and I'm absolutely room. It must be nice to always believe you know better. To, always think you're the smartest person in the room. For. Your I would never ever say I told you so, but if I did I, told you so law leader Fan, Fan Radio Network. Home K. F. A. N. DOT COM two minutes forty-seven seconds past three central daylight saving time welcome back bumper to bumper is the name of the program it is live and local, and it's a three and a half hour tour on a pretty nice Friday afternoon here in the twin cities of Minneapolis and Saint. Paul my name is Dan Barreiro host, the program and Mr Donaldson Ron. Ron Johnson is in today, guards has today and I believe Sunday off as well. Welcome back to the preceding skippy here. It's been a while been a long time very good to to see you in person once again. We've got a lot planned on today's show I mentioned very nice weather. Do Point down from what we've been experiencing, and that in of itself is I, think refreshing. Even though in the sun it's still pretty warm today. Temperatures getting up there pretty good eighty three right now, three forty eight percent humidity. Yeah, now that that's That's real nice, but we've been told before. We really want to understand how humid it is. We need to do point. Do. No longer in the we've had do points in the seventies forever sixty one degrees. That's just magical. De I wish we were doing the show outside. Kind of a summer stock, series or outside at Maynard, or any other any of several other locations, but we are in Saint Louis Park in the safety, and the sanctity of the a caffeine studios were delighted to chose to join today. Bradshaw Brian Box. Is being well. I'm doctor rebooted. Maybe you can explain this. This came in from Sweeney's guy. At two forty five subject line. Please make peace. Hi Dan. It's Friday afternoon with a hot weekend coming up. The bickering and fighting is kind of traumatizing. Could you just agree to disagree and get back to making fun of meat, sauce or something? was there some? Altercation on air between Rosen and common so I was in the score, which has a nice window in studio. Yes, that's true and I see common demonstrative. Stand up out of his, and he's just screaming at Rosie and Rosie's fire, and right back at calm and they. They got into it a little bit. Thinking for was it all for show honestly. I think he got a little bit heated a little bit real there for a minute. Do we know what it was about it? So when I heard it was about the way. Trump buyers handled the strike zone. was saying you know they need to basically. Make it consistent well. Rosie was make it consistent guy. All common was. There shouldn't be anything about making it consistent. There's just be right on Detroit's on the strike zone. Yeah Rosen was saying well. Everybody you know has a little bit different version of what a strike zone is, and as long as they're consistent. They're good, and it could not agree on the to the the glad that the eye opening subject today. I mentioned that we are indeed your I would never say I told you so, but if I did, I did I told I told you so leader because it is related to that and I'm assuming they were playing off of the stuff that was in the Star Tribune today about the use of a row, apparently robot umpires. That's exactly where home plate. and. I, I kinda I. completely disagree on this I think I. Don't know if I'm exactly on inside, but. The the notion in theory that makes sense that will strike those strikes on the ideal of mine's a little high minds, a little low whatever leaves out the reality in life which is. If you take ten people. And put behind home plate. For whatever reason what? They see what they think they see getting fooled by where the catcher is where the glove is. They're not all going to call it the same because they're going to bring. Even if it sub-conscious in, it's not conscious, they're. They're gonNA. They're gonNA. Look at it differently. So I've never been offended that there are different strike zones to an extent. As as common has been, but for me, the I told you so part of this, and this is what made it so delicious for me when I read it? This morning is if you read, this is a film. Miller story. and. The ball Dolly Wallace quoted. We're just trying it. We're giving the guys a taste of it instead of anonymous umpire strapping on the gear and going back there or someone standing in the middle of the Infield, we figured. We would give it a try. So. Here's the call. Here's a Nelson. Cruz quote from my standpoint was very awkward, going back up at one point. Alex Avila stood up, pointed, pivoted around and threw the ball into the screen in front of suggs in mock anger. That's advance Scout Colby suggs. And there were occasional yelps about borderline pitches from my standpoint, said Nelson Cruz. It was very awkward, Marlin. He was complaining about the strike zone to typical Marlin. Radars letter. The law zone seems more narrow than umpire call it players said, but extends a bit higher and lower than there used to as well, and there's no nuance to it then. There's a quote from Dodd Nak believe yeah. Randy Dot Nak. Early he said I don I don't think the players would like it that much. In general, Baseball's a game adjustments overtime. Guys would probably just I don't know how long it would take safe. A pitcher spots up inside under guys, hands and the catcher and move his glove. You think it's paint or just over the plate dot next said, but the ball was off the plate by a millimeter ball. Let's call. Balls called almost hundred percent of the time when umpires are going to that call because you hit your spot and it looked good. Here's a quote from another quote from dot. Guys that have the huge curveball guys like Clayton Kershaw. If, the ball clips the front of the zone. You can basically bounce. The ball on radar is going to say it's a strike. You can literally bounce balls and get a strike called. That would definitely cause some problems with hitters. the beauty of this. Is it's it? It proves what I said forever about. The dufuses who are obsessed with with the whole idea of having laser umpires and robot umpires because there's so much inconsistency and. Looking, for is the same call over and over again and the right call over and over and again and I've tried to tell people. There is no such thing as the perfect call, and what this proves is it ain't you're going to have? Just as much bellyaching the same frustration, perhaps for different reasons. Over robot up that you would. If there's a real lump there because human nature being what it is, you're gonNA, convince yourselves. Even if it's not true, you're gonNA. You'RE GONNA. Say Well that that was there was no consistency between what was called by the robot I and the fourth inning might not even be true, but your head is GonNa Convince yourself that because you're not going to want to admit perhaps your own contributions to the blender about where you put the pitch or didn't put the pitch and so the idea that. All our fears are going to be put to rest. Are All going to be happy about it? McNamee more. Controversy anymore complaining. There's more complaining and bellyaching in this single story than I generally see over two or three weeks and a major league baseball season with human empires. There is no way out of this box so to pretend that there's this perfect solution is nonsense and think about it. I think from what I understand. They're just doing this kind of as a for fun or just to Kinda see out there at target field right now. Is that accurate? It's not like they're actually doing any competition. That's true, so that's that's. Exactly the Doesn't even real and there's. This yeah yeah, make it up now. I understand that you have. Technology available that you didn't use to have in theory. That sounds good. We've talked about this related relation to replay forever. There's just no this perfection that we we pretend to Worship. And to want to get to. It. It's not going to exist and I've said forever I. I don't even know why why do know why I don't want to get into it right now but I do know why it's become such a mantra, such a mission for for so many people and the irony is. It's a mission from people who ordinarily the ones who said I mean who cares it's a it's a game. It's sports. It's professional game, but it's just a game There's so much more bigger issues to mess with, but somehow there I think a lot of times. It's directly related to your Phantom and. Every fan of every team has convinced that their team never gets. It's share of the calls, no matter the sport, and if that's the way you you roll then, you can't be objective because you're not going to remember the calls that you did get just because that's not human, nature is not the way it's GonNa work so again. This isn't the final effort I'm sure there'd be. Fine Tuning that would be done even within the wral of using robot Umpires, but the quotes were just just made me chuckle with crump's today because I said this is. And as you say, it wasn't even a game, it was just nonsensical practice, and whether no time there four three or four quotes, basically saying now inconsistent. I mean how can you? How can the ROBOT EMPIRE TO? Too High in some cases to law and other places. I i. don't even understand how it'd be possible, but it leads. It contributes to the fact. That we have to accept that we're not going to get to this place of perfection. Email. Matt common was a surly mood because he didn't do well in the name game, so use that as an ammunition to lash out. At At Rosen! Zero two yeah, common usually get shut out by Rosie. Didn't think he took the name game all that seriously. He gets a little bit frustrated sometime. In during the REU party had some connection issues, so he had a delay, and that was when all hell broke loose. emailer Rick doesn't matter what they think about. The strikes, neither one of those to have baseball game. have baseball game calms only good at boot, hockey and Golf Rosie has no game wow. That sounded odd sounded tense, did they did they? Did they kiss and make up before it was? Call I think so I think they kissed and made up after Yeah Yeah. It was It was very eye opening. It was is definitely a story that caught my eye today. tell you what let's We'll get before you pause in here. We have our first chance to put grant in your hand.

A lot of other good I think controversial conversations to to get into I'm going to violate the edict that was passed along to me yesterday that because I don't live in the city of Minneapolis I'm not allowed to talk about anything that happens in Minneapolis or Saint Paul.

The twins will open the their major league baseball truncated sixty game season in Chicago against the white. Sox I think two days after we have an exhibition game at Wrigley. Against the cubs just around the corner show, that's not that far off. The question is whether, of course it will actually happen. We'll get into that and much more with Lavelle Act five thirty. He is headlining. The Morten Volvo scorecard. Today we I don't believe. Right now we have no other guests schedule. We have a couple of calls in I'm though I'm not optimistic. That's going to get done today. I'm confused by this email. Related to the subject. We began the program with my having fun. being quite amused that The twins I efforts with a robot opera at least efforts with the robot arm. and. Practice yesterday left number of players grumbling about the inconsistency of Zone. And, not being particularly satisfied with how that went through behind home plate bill writes. You can't say the laser strike zone is imperfect. zone is zone. If you're going to eat well, I! That's not necessarily true. Because it's garbage in garbage out I. Dare say. The particular always are to depend on the calculations offered up. What kind of technology is used? My guess is that there might be disagreement on exactly. What the most precise. former the technology what that might take and how that might still have some effect on what why this call? Why two identical pitches might get called differently, but I digress. If you're going to use baseball players bellyaching about the robot umpires excuse to not want robot umpires in your to stop calling baseball, players, babies and to set in their ways. I. Why would I need to stop? Calling baseball players babies. And to set in their ways. My point is email back to him. Is that this thing you seek of about for perfection. Is Immaterial even if there ends up being less inconsistency. And even if you want to buy his premise that the zone is zone, my point is. It's not going to stop. FOR THE NEXT TEN YEARS Players. Managers and most significantly fans from saying we got squeezed. I saw that same pitch with their pitcher. It was the exact same place and we didn't get it. That's the point of it the point is that human nature being what it is. You're still gonNA end up having. An endless amount of bellyaching which to me is why it's not worth the difficulty in the nation and the shocked. The baseball system that this maintains or this I think it confirms so. Baseball players are babies. They are set in their ways and so as long as they are. It doesn't matter. How technologically perfect. The results are allegedly going to be. There's always going to be. We do this with the ball. All the time people deciding they juiced the ball. They didn't do anything to the ball. They changed this with the ball I'm. Conspiracies will never cease. No matter how technologically advanced one gets, it's just not gonNA work and. When, we're talking about replay when we're talking about calls that are examined over and over and over the toughest calls in every sport, what invariably happens? There's often still a disagreement on I I. Don't think that's right. I think that's it's close, but now I think they got that wrong and got to see that again I. It's it's this thing were pursuing. This perfection were pursuing, and it just simply does not exist now and I. It seems to me like this just proves like the technology at least doesn't exist yet. Have a robot replace a human being and have everybody be happy. You're not GONNA get anywhere. No, because you still have people complaining, believe me I won't be toss. It's not like it's GonNa. Keep me up at night if we go to robot umpires everywhere. Sir I. I'M NOT GONNA. Stop paying attention to the game I. it doesn't mean that much to me. I'm just amused in every sport by how hard we work this stuff in the name of allegedly getting it right, and in the at the end of the day most of the time, no matter how many angles we got there some that seem clear. Clear clear-cut, but there's enough game that still are called into question where it's still different, people are going to observe it and watch it and come to different conclusions about whether the call should have been reversed or should have not been reversed, and I'm not even talking about pass interference, which is another whole area that which I think now the NFL if. If there is a season has decided to move away from the I. No question I mean it's just going to be one of those things where you can't please everybody. The law of large numbers in a nutshell booth caffeine dot com feel like to join US Bradshaw and Brian Inbox Beluga. Whale guy wondering where Jay is, he getting early start at. At bird hunting, this is not a slight against Donaldson. No and by the way by bird hunting, we learned. There's a an urban kind of bird hunting. You may be aware of. It was listening to show yesterday I. It was all news to me. It has to do with e scooters that in a lot of cities. This has become such A. Significant way for kids to make money what they do is they collect these birds birds, I think one of the brands? These. Scooters overnight to get them recharged and the story. I read from I. Think it was in the Atlantic said a key. Kid could has has made as much like six hundred bucks. Is that right given night? Just charging? But what's happened is what you might expect when there's that kind of money at stake. There's brawls people fighting over who got to the e Scooter I. Taking the e scooter away from somebody else trying to blackball individuals who this there's there's lay multi-layer to it, but I don't think and guards. You mentioned. I mentioned the six hundred bucks a night. Guards. He said well, you know. With me, being on the outside, looking in probably for a Lotta freelance like gopher sideline football duties I might have to consider this. I said Yeah could be a good way to make up. That lost revenue. Who knew there is that type of money and bird hunting of the electronic scooter variety? I live in northeast Minneapolis right now so right? I see birds or Or the electronic scooters you know I don't know what brand they are. If we have the bird ones here, Minneapolis or not, but maybe there's a little side Gig in there for me. Who knows I'm right in that neck of the woods I might as well get my hands on some of the cash Sweeney's guys back says they did not make up. All really how extremely bitter that Rosie absolutely destroyed them in the name game common proceeded mercilessly Berate Rosen for defending umpires at the end of the show. Rosen said well. I'll be off next week to which Colin snarled. Why don't you make it to? Go Radio, it was great. It's all about I gotTA. Have some controversy. You GotTa have some negativity. We can't bounce off games yet. If we ever get a chance to bounce off games, I don't even know what it's going to be like to be able to bounce off a ballgame. And to mock it out, umpires call. A grooved curve ball. STUPID BASE RUNNING Boxton getting hurt again. It's the whole concept is so feel so foreign right now because it's been so long since we've been able to do that. Yeah, I miss those days where we can argue about things like that. Actually involving sports on the playing field I definitely miss those days by the way we will mix in some phone calls today since we're relatively guest free donaldson will work on that as well eight, hundred, three, two, zero, five, three, two, six, six, five, one, nine, eight, nine, fifty, three, twenty, six of really interesting emails on the Empire Subject continue to pour. I get to some of those when we return. I couple really really good ones and as I said, we got done to get to got a woge bomb to get to watch bomb woken in the middle of major controversy, involving a US senator as well. That's got everybody talking throughout the United States of America it's. It's combustible very controversial as well and how about this? I. Don't know if you've heard about this one. There's a new. Allegedly a new virus out of Qasr extent now that Chinese officials suggest. Is Much more lethal than covid nineteen Oh, of course it is now again. We get one of these every. It seems like every other day. We're getting one of these stories, and how are they? How much of them are cliquey as in Click Bait I'm not sure, but we'll continue, we'll. We'll take a look at that as well. We are here until six thirty. Sources say about. Sixty four percent bit thirty six percent vicious as in reality between Rosen and calm, it stephanos somewhere in that six. Yeah is what I was told, and my source is pretty close to a particular story, and but nevertheless it I said that's you know it's a Friday afternoon? Everybody's running out of juice. You need something right normally. It's a fedex. Friday for Frank. Rom It's true. They just mail it in point. You got just the opposite. That's the beauty of that sponsorship ever taken whole. Don't think so it. Definitely practice would be. Couple emails coming in on this controversial. Subject before we get to more serious, a section matters by baseball definition, the strike zone is subjective and changes. Height of a strike varies by batter height. They have a narrow stance or wide stance, and how much they crouch machine was calling the balls and strikes it with charge. The strike zone changed the strikes on pretty much every pitch because of how the batter is standing. It's an interesting point, and that's where I think imperfection is just baked. GOING TO BE BAKED IN I don't know if what he's saying is true. Technologically, if you went to a robot up, but it does enter into the imperfections of anybody attempting to call balls and strikes. All that stuff kind of factors in and I continue to maintain that. Yeah, there have been some bad calls made at at at behind the plate, but we've survived at somehow and most of the time I think they're pretty good calls and again. What most players are looking for is a measure of consistency so they whatever it is. You stay true to it over the course of the entire game, and you're going to be less unhappy. emailer that was emailer. Hold on all. All well, here's the back here's somebody with the backstory on rose and common claim, okay yesterday's show commentary to get Rosen going with the Buxton injury. Talk didn't work too well. As common site off the show yesterday told mark the tomorrow he would get going mark said, of course you will think common started all this to get him like going like said towards the end, it got hotter expected. That sounds about right. You can lose control of the getting it going and you end up getting yourself going up. It's exactly right to myself. Many many many times common I. The BUXTON! Think, Cowan I. Shared the same opinion for on this on his side. On this one he's on mine. and the roses just wrong on their skies. That goes back to the idea that you can't. There's no sensible way if you try to put any caution in Buxton's head. That you're you're taking away his greatest strength. That's what some of the ball guys say. I've never bought it. Common I know has never bought it either that there are too many. Outstanding Instinctive. outfielders in this case we're talking about baseball outfielder so narrow center fielders who? Are Among the best. They've ever played the game, but have reached a point where they factored in a sensible method that makes it less likely that they're going to miss half a season in their effort to try to track down every ball that they're absolutely was away even to convince Buxton to learn how to hate to say it crash into a wall more effectively body lean. Vision combination of many many different things so i. And you know Buxton is saying the right things on that. That was the topic yesterday whether it will. We have no way to know how it's GonNa Affect Dizzy possible. He's GONNA end up being too cautious. Yeah, you can't rule out. We're not going to know until we actually see out there, but that apparently is the backstory. Dan after this is a south for listening to the empire, Controversy Common Show, and now yours reminds me of a Mike. Vac Line from your show. If you take the out of the game, you take away the controversy now you'll have boring games. Yeah, well, there's something to that. emailer Mike I believe it works like A. Cat. Read this cat three landing in an aircraft. You have the localize her. The horizontal component and the glide slope, the vertical component, and when performing an I'LL S. INSTRUMENT LANDING! The aircraft does the landing including the flair. It's absolutely precise every time man. That's awfully technical. Idea I'll take him at his word. Is only important. If you're passenger, you want to save landing if somebody precise strike zone, who cares good point I think that he sang. Is that stuff matters to people because we all want to land safely, right? That's all pretty important. Each and every one of us would argue Sainsbury's any of US do these days but. Is All that stuff worth. One missed. Call a ball or strike, whatever the case may be Kip rights with a robot umpires still the automatic strike on a three. Oh count. That's that's a great question. emailer Peter I somewhat agree with your assessment. Dan that the robot won't fix. The Griping for players managed by favor of row bombs, because it may speed up the game by skipping the early lengthy at bats where the pitchers and batters try to figure out the zone the calling that night. They'll eventually know what zone is as long as the robot kept consistent and pitchers hopefully throw more strikes. See me being the IMF that I am. If there was a way technologically. To. Like between the the first four innings and the next five. Alter just a little bit. The robot up home plate calls. That would be delicious. There's a way to bake in inconsistency by the. Touch of a button or something, I don't know if that's technologically possible that to me would be more delicious. That would be even more fun. Thanks for the clarification rights bill who I fired back at earlier them being babies is not a good excuse to not to eliminate poor umpiring. Personal opinion I agree. It's funny, not surprising. They're grousing. You're also correct. The players and fans will find fault with the human or the robot I think again on. They're gonNA get more frustrated when it's a robot, I think you're right. They're gonNA because they're going to be led to believe now there's no question supposed to be perfect and it might be, but they're not going to believe it is exactly. There's even less chance they're going to believe. It is when it's. A when it's a robot up then if it's a a real one going back to the vet quote. When he said that it's going to take controversy out of the game, it'll take the punch outs out of the game. I love the punch out I'm with you. I mean that's part of. That's part of the fun. Yeah, the the. Part of the action to they to get into it last, but perhaps not least on this subject Mitch Rights. How will robot prevent the Yankees from sweeping the twin?

We prefer to be inside. Neighbors say all that's changed now. Thanks to the blockades. They put them up. Apparently it's. Residents put these barricades up. About ten days ago out of desperation. Before that they say crime was out of control of drug, dealing and prostitution having out in the open. Lots of violence shootings people were being robbed at gunpoint, said another neighbor Rachel Glover. Children couldn't play outside because they were used needles. Everywhere. So, they went with the barricades. Police came out Wednesday. After some key, apparently concern for Minneapolis traffic control. But according to this story, at least a temporary peace has been restored. We've been getting support from the officers said Ali Hassan a neighbor. When we call. They knew what we were doing. and. They were very supportive and I wanNA. Tell them thank you. Glover suggested that someone affiliated with the Minneapolis Police. Department initially suggested. The blockades in addition, five or seven people rotate for neighborhood. Neighborhood Watches to which MP supports. Problem has been giving us. A strength is now our together? We'll be fighting for a better place to live Stan work. There's nobody else. Is doing anything for, US. Several people on the block field that their city council member a laundry work. Has Failed Them In letting it get to this point. She did not get back to see with comment. On the. Situation. Sad State of affairs. When you are left so desperate. That put it this way, even if you. Are Frustrated by the Floyd Story and the Minneapolis. Police Department! And don't have full trust and faith in that department. It must really be a helpless feeling because the other hand. You have so little faith in the city council as well. To the point where you don't know who to turn to, because you're not getting the kind of support, you feel like you need perhaps from either. And so you decide, we're GONNA, have to take matters into your own hands, and we're going to just block the street. And for at least a period of time, give ourselves some sense of. What any citizen I think wants more than anything else is just a little piece and a little bit of a sense of normalcy, the kids can play relatively safely outdoors. the numbers are staggering. They continue to be staggering. I don't have a solution perfect answer. There is probably no perfect answer. But I think we'll all agree that. it certainly cannot be ignored and that the best minds need to come together pretty quickly and figure out something that is. Realistic. That realistically has a chance to to make a difference. We're on a pace that Is Staggering And it's not just here, but we'll. We'll keep the story to hear right now, and it has a number of people you could hear it. I just I can feel it on the basis of those those quotes how? Frustrating depressing. And quite infuriating, it has to be to feel like that nobody. Again sweet. Bumpers the name of the show will get to the bottom in a minute. Want to read a couple of emails and mix a call or two. Bradshaw Brian box is. Open booth at Caffeine Dot Com, and a number of emails are in this comes from Kevin Out of North Minneapolis. I was at a block a block club meeting a couple of weeks ago and the frustrations real we had a shooting in our corner, and according to witnesses, the extent of the police investigation was to announce the gathered crowd that if anyone has video, send it in. But the same, the boyfriend of a teenage girl on the block and some friends kicked in the door. beat up the family to get money got none. and laughed. They return shortly after and repeated the exercise. It seems that the police no longer respond to crime on the side I live and work here. And while driving to work before the riots, I regularly saw police car to on the way in between granted, my travel has decreased since the covid nineteen hit, but when I go out I just don't see any officers. We feel we have been abandoned and the hoodlums are taken their chance to pursue their mayhem. We're at our wit's end. Don't know what to do. Is the city's way to drive us out of town I? I know you turn your back on the city awhile ago. that's a callback to yesterday's lead male, but I appreciate your continued interest in what happens here. That's Kevin. Minneapolis up by the way for the record. People, in positions of authority, police departments, starting with chief Aero Dondo continue to insist that nothing has changed about police responding. To calls They do not like the intonation. The suggestion that part of what's happened here is. I you're on us. Were on the run a little bit. You're down on us. You want to de-fund US at Sarah Maybe we're going to be a little bit more passive in what we do in everything that we do Erdo has insisted that that would not be acceptable to him. He wouldn't allow it. but emailer guys clearly very. Frustrated as As well. Brad rights imagine feeling like you did during the riots every night. and. On the question of whether the city council's going to eliminate the police department. Patrol the streets themselves. They've never suggested that that's what they were going to do. What they suggested is. The that be that the notion? And I. Get some of this I. Really Do. The notion that. Nothing positive changes because we go with the or there's a few bad apples. Approach. And we try to keep working through the system. And we keep bringing on police chiefs who are supposed to be about as progressive as one could get in a city that's been run by progressives for a long time. And that. We got a shock, the system and the way we shocked. The system is to really shock the system. the problem they have is. We talked about with several people including the former mayor is you gotta have your ducks in a row? you have to have already in place. Some really significant ideas that are tangible and make sense because it is true I think that, and this is part of the reason we've talked about the union side of this thing the structural issue that's going to continue to haunt his and make I think the job for a police officer difficult. Is! The inability to discipline the way. That bad cops need to be disciplined. and. That's why I think to say. Few bad apples isn't enough. A few bad apples can have a massive impact. If structurally. Speaking. The people who really want to do something about it have to keep putting bringing those cops back. And then I would argue then the cops who are professional and just try to do their job. They end up getting hurt and penalized by that. very much as well. It becomes kind of a vicious circle so. I get the shock to the system. I'm still not convinced though that. As we see what's happening out happening here and in some other cities. that. Because the the argument is, we gotTA treat more than the symptoms. And I and we've got. We got to 'cause. We gotta get at that structural stuff. I! Am on record agreeing with that. But I've said the reality and we're seeing it more and more every day. Is You have to open your eyes? To say that we're just going to be interested in dealing with the disease rather than the symptoms makes no sense. You have too many very serious symptoms right now. No matter what you think about coming up with a better formula. That might work term. You've got really serious symptoms day to day that are transforming for the worst people's lives in these communities, and so you can't abdicate advocate in the meantime you you. You have to find a way to create a larger measure of stability and safety. At least within reason. Even while you're trying to deal with some more structural issues, and that's the part where I think the failure has been pretty severe, and whether it's more bad guys are emboldened, or the cops are backing a little bit or combination of both of those things are other factors that go into the mix. It's so prevalent now. It's not enough to say. You know we got to blow the whole thing up you have to. You have to have in the short run. You have to give people you have an understanding of what they're dealing with day to day, and not be dismissive of that and I think that's what I'm hearing from a lot of people. That's how they feel. We've seen the quotes from victims families. Who Basically said where the I, you know, I need demonstrations on this, too. I need I need a greater sense of urgency on these issues that are affecting us day to day. Even if I agree that what happened George Floyd is inexcusable, can't stand and has to be part of a larger discussion. We're still living here. In the meantime, we still have the same day to day issues that we always had now perhaps even more than we did previously. Dean is calling from Learfield Dean. You're on the fan hello. Dana there. Dean! Dean. There we go now. We got you go ahead dean. Loaded? Down a couple of couple of the mornings after the after the riots took place you know from late go I just went down To see what was going on down there and I watch some people on the front line on the walls, and I did some help with folks down there as well and clean up clean up the place, and you just watch the you're just watch the what these up officers took along that lines, and it's the barrage of attacked them in the name calling the just I mean it had a huge effect on on our police force that are serving equal in fact to the point where a lot of these people The cops are having. PTSD stuff happening in their life, and so and I'm not trying to say you know like that we should know collartoo that, but but I know it's the impact on the morale is incredible. I I talked to a guy that worked for twenty years, and one of the precincts one that down down, and I asked him how he's feeling. He said never in my twenty years if we. Have felt more ejected in my life well and I'm on. He's trying to make a different. You know whether it's a good guy or bad guy. No. But. But that side of things we're looking at these guys struggling out there, and then we're seeing numbers of people dropping off before as this as well as I think that they're understaffed. A good friend of mine just got pulled into a double last night. And he wasn't expecting to do a double, but he's doing a double down in this city that that isn't appreciative and thankful. For the very thing that thing eat is some some order and I think it's time for us. All be really praying on our knees for restoration reconciliation across the board, and and the police don't have to pay the brunt of it i. think we all have to work together to make that happen? Thank you for the for the phone. Call I look. There's not any question. that. Time like this. Cops who are trying to do their job. They feel under siege I say to a certain extent. You have to accept if you do this job and understanding that when the frustration sets in on a story like George Floyd, story. That's GONNA be part of your job easy for me to say because I don't have to deal with the day to day. Does it create greater stress does create arouse greater suspicion even in situations where cops literally are called to a place and are attempting to do their work. Yes, is that complicate matters to? Yes, does that where people? Absolutely, but we're also hearing a lot of people. In neighborhoods who are worn down to? And on the issue of of cotton numbers I, don't because any question. I've talked about this actually for even before the Floyd story that. There are law enforcement to say who predict than in about ten years. We're going to have maybe sooner now. There's going to be a big problem just literally getting enough people. Through police academies who are going to be willing to do the job at all I know there's some people out there. Don't believe we should have police at all. Or feel like it has to be revolutionised and cop should have a much narrower focus on what they cover, but we've talked about the insanity of that, too, as it pertains to example domestic stuff. this feeling that well with the domestic you send. You send the therapist you. You send the professionals who are negotiate who are trained to deal with those things that sounds good. And I. Don't disagree with it. There are a lot of police departments that I think have a are attempting to do that, but you're not again living in a real world if you think that anybody. Who's in fair appear anybody WHO's trained to. With domestic issues and negotiate. is going to show up by himself or herself. And attempt to do any of that until there's a belief that the scene has been secured. Some of the most dangerous situations for anybody makes I, think it should be obvious is a domestic scene. Dangerous for the the the the victim at the time, dangerous for other people who might be around at the time dangerous revenue. Anybody else who might try to step in and do something about that so? Again if we're going to have real conversations about, they have to be real the idea that we're going to be able to create these separations. And and and rationally move forward I just don't think that part of it makes makes a lot of sense either unfortunately emailer Ted! I, agree with our Dondo. Wait a minute. There's Oh, I see sent the email twice I agree with Redondo. Has Changed it how police respond? They've prevented zero crime. Solve the similar number for decades. All we do is pay their hefty salaries. Ot fraud cash security racket for local events, generous pensions and now PTSD payout see Fox story today for the suffering. The went on posing police state in some parts of the city and being derelict in their duties. Let's defined start over with a group that doesn't resent the area and the people that they work for. Thanks loved the show well again I I the the sentiment that the. Structurally the system that set up now is not getting to the root of the problem. I get and I accept. What you start over with though means everything. Everything. It cannot be overstated how important that is. What do you have in mind that is going to necessarily be? So Different The idea of having cops. By that appeals to me. Is there way to do that legally? I don't know. But the. The detail precision, the lack of precision. The detail I think has been the biggest problem for some regarding the way to city council, some of the comments out of City Council that indicate they think they're protecting their own citizenry by this approach and yet day. Nothing of the sort has happened, and in some cases it's things have actually gotten gotten worse, and that was when we had the mayor on the phone for an extended period. I think the the comment was. Don't don't try to throw. put this down our throats. This idea of starting over defunding the cops give us an idea of what you have. EXP, precisely what you have in mind and all we hear is we hear? Hate to say it very new, AG, catchphrases about synergy and Collaborative and Stuff that sounds good in theory, but does not deal with the day to day stuff that continues to plague many a major American cities, and most surely this fan. Time shots, but a grand in your hand with our national cast contest text, the keyword, rich rich to two hundred, two hundred to enter standard text message and data rates. Want to get to the bomb here. We'll try to mix and more phone calls and and some emails finish at least for this moment on this subject with what the Atlanta mayor was a couple of days ago. They had a spate of shootings there. In fact, The worst of it was a kid. WHO's in a driving in a vehicle heading towards a liquor store near went the burnt-out. Wendy's who was shot and killed, and the mayor said If to attempt to make this. Basically said we can't blame the police for this one. And WanNA broadened out. Broaden it out. The the relationship between the police and the minority community. is a vital and crucial part of this story. It cannot be left out, but it is absurd. And I think. Leading to what I what I heard from the mayor to suggest that we're having an honest conversation if it ends there. The level of killings and shootings that we are seeing and madness in in some cases if all we discuss, is that relationship? If that's all we discuss, we ain't doing the job. We're not having the honest conversation and by the way this doesn't leave racism out of out of the. The the the story in any way shape or form about. The conditions it exists in those communities, but if we if we leave that out. Or Lion to everybody quite frankly I think, and that's why I think the mayor and least on that occasion was attempting to point to regarding what she has seen in the last few nights in her city Adrian Rosicky is known for what we in the business call woge bombs. And if you're not familiar with him, he's the NBA reporter these days for ESPN huge following very plugged in in the NBA and. Awards bomb simply met another WHOA JR scoop. Another story that he seemed to get before pretty much. Everybody else. Today the story is. Not so much awards bomb, but a woge f-bomb one could say in relation to a an email. Let me give it set up the story if you're not familiar with it because it has like everything, else become very much political. It's become very much blue red. It's become very much sharks versus the jets. And, it goes something like this. Let me get. I guess I'll even use the ESPN version of the story. Josh. Holly is a senator US senator out of Missouri. He sent a letter to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver. Today. Writing, that the League's policy. On social justice injustice messages quote appears to stop at the edge of your corporate sponsors sensibilities unquote especially when it comes to matters involving China and support of the United States military and law, enforcement personnel. In the letter Holly said, silver has quote has been called deepening the NBA ties to the Chinese Communist Party since Houston Rockets General Manager Darryl Maurice Tweet in support of anti-government protestors in Hong Kong in October. According to this story silver back the free speech rights of Maury, but the ensuing fallout from that tweet caused Chinese companies to pause or cancel sponsorship deals with silver estimating losses of probably less than four hundred million dollars, the league, lowering its salary cap projections for next season games to be pulled from broadcast television in China there's a tweet from Holly a about what he sent to the League. If the NBA is GonNa put Social Costs Davidson uniforms. Why Not Support? Our troops are back the blue or given how much money NBA makes in China. How about free Hong Kong today I wrote Adam Silver to ask for answers. Holly, saying the League's new policy of enhanced employees expression. When it comes to social injustice, has quote crossed the line of sanctioning specific political messages rather than allow free speech this time for you to make it clear that what you're Lee believes about human rights and about the nation. That is your home There's a quote here from the VP of communications for the NBA Mike Bass. We just received a letter in are reviewing it. apparently WHOA Jr.. was in a group of ESPN reporters and maybe others. Because they in this case, cover the NBA. He got some sort of like a form statement from Holly's office laying out hallways complaints. And apparently replied in his own email to that staff written email from Holly's office. of saying simply bleep you and he didn't use bleep. He used the F word instead. At at some point after that holly captures or somebody from his office captures the the the message back to him the email back to his office. and. Puts that out online with a comments, something the effect of these acting here. Basically the bid there must be some some sensitivity here From ESPN people at least one on this particular issue at which point then all hell breaks loose. Everybody's calling espn to see what kind of comment you have etcetera etcetera since then woge has tweeted an apology up I should back up ESPN. Before I would even did that issued a statement. Saying this is completely unacceptable behavior. We do not condone. It's inexcusable for anyone working for ESPN to respond. Wade rain did a Senator Holly? We're addressing it directly with Adrian. Adrian and specifics of those conversations will remain internal I then. Jr tweets out I was disrespectful and I made a regrettable mistake I'm sorry for the way I handle myself and I'm reaching out immediately to senator. Holly to apologize directly else. You'd apologize to my ESPN colleagues because I know my actions were unacceptable and should not reflect on any of them if you spend more than a minute or two on twitter. You will know that this has become like. I said very much. A sharks jets thing if you despise holly. And you think he stands for. Your telling Whoa Ge you go. Won't you love it? You're shaking your fist in exaltation. A got him shouldn't have to apologize for anything if you're on the other end of it. Holly is a US senator who is deeply wounded and Mike. Curl up in the fetal position on the basis of the comment that that won't made. I've made my views on this clear before and I I of quoted in fact I'm not gonNA quote Senator Holly I'll quote. Your guy, the chest four chessmaster. King Gary Casper. who had the same reaction that I did as it turns out to? Some comments that. The commissioner had made. I think this was on. Tuesday! He had one of those. Silver had one of those group chat things going via zoom, or whatever it was on a number of different subjects, and somebody apparently asked him about. The NBA's relationship with China. And Silvers response was that he felt it's improved. They have a different view how things have been done i. think should be done. Hopefully. We can find mutual respect for each other. I thought it was extremely way to neutral I. thought it was extremely What's the best term I could give you kind of mealy-mouth to be honest. It was just sort of. It just it. It didn't. It wasn't a very strong declarative place that he took it a look like he was just basically trying to keep keeping all. Just keep it. Keep it down. Let's keep everything down. And cast off, noticed the quote, and he said the NBA Concern for Human Rights Stop at the bank. China China has concentration camps and is preparing to crush Hong Kong and he talks of mutual respect. WHAT A joke They're vulnerable and they become the NBA whether. lefties accepted it or not. They become vulnerable especially on it at a point where they're trying to pose themselves as we're going to give our players. In this shortened. Season and postseason a chance to express themselves by putting something other than their own name on the back of their uniforms. And as we talked Abou- Johnny Athletic. Noble intention timely in intention. But we come to find out that only certain messages works going to be accepted. In fact, even some players have said within the realm of this particular social justice issue as it involved as it involves African Americans I'm Kinda not happy that? This is the list I have to choose from. I had a couple of other words. I wanted to go with instead, and apparently I can't beyond that once you open the door to this belief that we're GonNa let our players expressed themselves. I. Ask Johnny Johnny brought up actually the idea of well. What if somebody wants to say? Free Hong Kong not on the list. What if somebody wants to has police in their family and watch to make some effort to stand tall for police who do their job correctly? That among the. Items that would be approved apparently not and so. It comes off. Ultimately as this is kind of a game by the NBA regarding putting other messages, certain messages, social justice messages on the backs of the deal why? WON'T LOSES MIND ON IT I. have no idea I. It's not I. Don't think it's particularly good luck, but again if you despise holly, and you think we should be worried about other things. I'm not a big Josh how? That's for sure, but on this particular subject. He would respond that way because I mean. Watch doesn't work for the NBA I didn't think. He works for ESPN. Job is to cover the NBA, so there is in my opinion some vulnerability. The this league has right now on this issue. Now I would say to to to set her holly. What you're being disingenuous about is pretending. Not to understand. The beginning of this process, and and you're showing. Some of that tone deafness that we saw from drew brees. Based on what he was saying, regarding, kneeling for for the for the national anthem that to pretend you don't understand exactly why so many black athletes in this case, black NBA players are. Inspired right now to make certain statements. You're you're you're? You're completely phony yourself if you don't have some understanding of it, but to the larger issue. Of. What messages are okay and what are because I've said this million times. People get sick of me saying. I've said it for twenty years. The easiest thing to approve of or to champion. Is the. Opinion editorial stance that you agree with. The real challenge is your willingness in a free culture to accept or to, if not necessarily accept, and certainly not obligated to agree with, but to at least accept the possibility of. Is that somebody else that you're going to defend somebody else's right? To offer up that statement. That's the test it's there's. It doesn't take any courage to say. Oh, yeah, go for one hundred percent with that. I agree with the sentiment it's. It's one that you might even find abhorrent. And you disagree with that I. Think is where the the real test is and so. don't don't quote senator. Holly I'll quote Casper on. The League has some real vulnerability on this issue and. It leaves me feeling as if this is a little bit of a game. We're doing this. Because this was part of our negotiations with the players and the play, because some players that even expressed concern or frustration about what should we even be playing so even come back for a season because we do not want to take away from these issues that have been raised and are being talked about in a way that perhaps never. Never have before social issues, police issues, etc and I don't have any doubt. This was part of the negotiation You can keep that front and center by putting names up there, but then ultimately we come to find out the league decided what those names were not negotiated allegedly with the players association, so there was some back and forth, but clearly there were some that were not included and You know there's a lot of international. International players to who may have different ideas about what what what caused. They want to bring to the to the table and so to me the league it comes off a little bit like the League looks as if they want to look a certain way and want to give the idea that they believe in that level of that measure of freedom and getting those messages out, but in the end they determine which messages are okay, they. They get a little bit help from the players they get to determine which ones and there's not a chance in hell that there would have been. Anybody would have been allowed to put a free Hong Kong deal on there and I know there's business contingencies in involved with that, but once again. If you're trying to exercise, your might as we're different, we allow our players to express themselves and let the chips fall where they may. We're not worried about what impact it has on our business. The issues are too important. They either are they are and match to me. The vulnerability on I don't know what exactly got into a mean we get. I get a million press releases from people, and some politicians and some of them. I agree with some I disagree with Maybe there's a back story that somewhere down the down the road. We're going to get to on that particular issue. Six hundred, I should say eight, hundred, two, zero, five, three to six toll, free, six, five one. Nine eight, nine, fifty, three, twenty, six will continue to mix and emails If you want to get in on this particular subject as well regarding the latest, the new new definition for Welsh bomb that much is. For sure I've said too I. I'm not really made for these times to the extent that. Everybody wants us just as we gotta get along better. We have to in our discourse. You know saying bleep you is. That's not really that's not a very nourishing way for the back and forth to take place, and it isn't I would grant you that I've always felt though we can't. We shouldn't be all that snow flaky about any of this stuff I. I come from the Christopher. Hitchens philosophy of political debate, which actually is meaner and can get kind of vicious. Hopefully, it's still based on merit, and it's based on actual facts and things that we can argue back and forth but. It's become like I said. You're either offended. Because you're on the other side of it or you say well hollies, the snowflake on the other hand, you could say well, but is the snowflake for reacting the way did to a press release about an opinion that he can one hundred percent disagree with, but what had him rise to that particular level, so we're back to. If you're a shark, feel one way agenda The fan. I was about to rip the Minnesota while. For the one of the more shameless promotional moves in the history of promotions, you you of all People Ron. Donaldson should know about shameless promotions. Oh I'm I. wrote the Book On that I was about to rip him for welcoming or announcing that they they got a new kind of team mascot dog a six month old golden retriever named Hobie. They welcome him to the team. Spend the next year with the wild. But then I come to find out where this dog will go after the year with the wild. It's now training with soldiers six, which is a nonprofit based in Minnesota the provides honorably discharged veterans, police, officers, and firefighters with specially trained canines. At that point I, said I can't ripple. You can't read them for that. because. All. We got our. We get the cutest dog ever now. It's a lovely looking perfectly groomed, golden retriever, the best ever and so there it is I- reeser. He was the original Minnesota while he has graduated sounded now. This is whole bays. Turn Moby, I, like it I think this is just announced yesterday or even perhaps today so You're right.

How to move forward more conversations be had the feeling that MPM PD is occupying forces, a real one among the residents. They sneer at a C V precincts. Popeye Malt liquor xmas tree last year. That was when those. I were located adorning a Christmas tree. They're. In I'm all I shouldn't use this word, but I get triggered hearing. HOW TOUGH EAST COPS have it?

White male who keeps his and I'm a middle class white male who keeps his head. Down I get that too I. Feel agree with us. I'm curious if he would. I don't think we're having an honest conversation if we make it all about the police. If that's all we discuss. About what's happening in in many communities in terms of levels of. Violence it's an it's a the can't be separated. But, is it fair? Are we having a the full conversation we need. Given the numbers number of people who are being shot and or killed and residents who are saying victims family members who are saying. We got a lot of other stuff that we need to discuss here. We quoted directly from those individuals that has more power obviously when it comes from those individuals in. In those communities as As well. one more I wanted to get to on this subject before we get to some WHOA JR emails. This one came in much earlier now. We've got too many. That's the problem. Police Fourche Shoot Policy Oh. This is from Ryan. I think of it like this. Morbid I know if I tried to myself, two things need to happen I call nine one one to get me stabilized into a safe place. Then get me counseling therapy. ETC, to deal with the underlying causes. See Council's trying to get Minnesota into counseling while they're bleeding out on the floor. Yeah, it's a graphic way to put it, but that's the deal. The deal is that. What I said before is. In order to move forward with what no matter what changes you think need to be made, and you attempt to implement. A certain measure of stability has to be reestablished or nobody wins or nothing really can be. Dramatically shifted. Or changed, I don't think. There has to be. The instability that exists now is conducive to doing absolutely nothing. Other than what we're now seeing is is nighttime totals. We you know we have every day. We have covid nineteen tolls. and. This is like a new box. That's up there. That could be up in the corner. In some cities, it sadly business as usual west and south side of Chicago Illinois. In New York. Though this is a relatively new in terms of the numbers frequency. Here, the numbers are up dramatically and again. The irony is we've talked about. The the allegation is their places where the cops are too heavy handed. And the great contradiction to that is they're all other places like in sections of downtown, Minneapolis where people are having difficulty, just using mass transit without getting getting bothered or getting getting mugged or at least being threatened. We say the complaint was there wasn't. An understanding that you needed some greater security presence in those situations for the good of everyone. So, none of these issues are. Are Very easy obviously, but The conversations have to pretty much continue. Where am I on? I wanted to try to get to a couple of Here's an email on. This has been writing. On Senator Holly and NBA The reason won't responded as he did as it. Holly is in a position where he can do something about China's sanctions trade penalties NBA's been taking bad faith flack from righties ever since last year. Why is it that the white righties think that the black is? The NBA should be the blunt instrument against Chinese authoritarian suppression. Why can't holly make a move all this while the USA still? runs our own. Concentration camps. We do. K.. That's all bad faith. That's the issue. where he not care I, don't even. Disagree that he is using this as a political football. I would say respectfully to ban that. That doesn't make the NBA any less vulnerable. The issue on the NBA it's just consistency. About if your if you, if you mean to open a door that has not been opened up this wide before you either mean it or you don't, and if you only do selectively than to me, I would find it patronizing five on the other side of this to say well all really so some things are okay and some things. Are, not I'm still not sure. I. Guess I would prefer a little bit more I know people bleep you. People believe in. bleep you when you're agreeing with the person who sang it. When you're on the other side of it, it's unprofessional and it goes back to it. All depends on sally whose ox is. Is Being Gored, eight, hundred, three, two, zero, five, three, two, six, six, five, one, nine, eight, nine, fifty, three, twenty six. Top, five five, coming up top of the hour, and then Lavelle will join in the five o'clock hour. He's scheduled for. Five thirty on SEAN YOU'RE calling us from Saint Paul. Go ahead! You're on the fan. Thanks for holding. Thanks for taking my call. Dan Yes. I quickly want to shut up Ryan Donaldson for your Bret Michaels. That's one of the funniest thing ever heard. Thank you I? Out of the loop on even Obama? West related to this, and that was like two months Agai, I've pranked carly. Yeah, I dear idol, forgive you know and I'm still feeling bad about it i. appreciate it, thank. You should have all had those those moments. That's for sure, go ahead. And then I just wanted to ask you so I am twenty six. And I was wondering Dan. If there's maybe some advice that you wish, you would've known at twenty six that you know now that you wish you knew then. Oh, my, that's A. That's a very profound question. Thank you for the phone call. That's two might be too heavy for me for a Friday although we're talking about some fairly. Heavy subjects Best Advice I wish I would have when I was. Twenty six. Probably it's going to sound like an old timer comment, but it's basically. As, tried as it is, patience is a virtue. and. The kid wants to hear that maybe now more than ever depending on what your whatever you feel like. You're dealing with in your own life. But the idea that. No matter how good or bad everything looks at a given moment. Especially, if it's something bad the idea that you want it fixed tomorrow. Or you wanted it all to be turned around tomorrow. It's the ability to sort of let things come to you a little bit without being too eager, because sometimes when you're eager it. You compound one mistake. With, another one or maybe two or three more? That would probably be it. I had hair then to six had here. Seems like a long time ago, doesn't it? Try to I'll tell you what let's go ahead and I don't WanNa. Get too far behind schedule, so let's we appreciate the calls left. We're not gonNA. Be Able to get to them right now. BOOTH DOT COM! If you WANNA, email us what your call was gonna be about. We'll try to mix those in the five o'clock hour of the show, but we got top five at five to get to which will include what? Take the Florida out, of Jacksonville, and olive branch and the Sean Jackson Controversy coverted testing numbers for the MLB some Vikings Training Camp News it won't surprise many, and we'll get to a little bit more. That wo- JR Apollo Dazzle and it's the fan. Just in case you missed it. It's the top five sports talkers of the day now. It's time for Jan Barreiros top five at five driven by Volvo. Donaldson's that share guards. He's got the day off I. Think he's off on the cake show to be replaced. This Sunday by Ron Johnson. Is that right on Johnson filling in for cake show? I'll be on sermons between nine. And eleven o'clock a donaldson. Where would you like to begin? Let's start with the. Unraveling kind of what's on folded since we learned about the Jackson controversy, the antisemitic self that he put out there on twitter. The fallout is happening as we speak in real time just an hour ago, Adam. Schefter tweeted out wide receiver Sean. Jackson met with a group of anti-semitism yesterday, and he's meeting with the ninety four year old Holocaust survivor today, and that is quote trying to educate himself That's coming from over the week. As it went and then Julian. Adamant Patriots Wide Receiver who is of Jewish faith. He released a video on twitter, and he addressed the Sean Jackson Controversy, and this is the message in a little bit of an olive branch extended by one. Julian Edelman to Sean Jackson Fellow Wide Receiver. It's really hard to see the challenges of community. Can face when you're not part of it. So what we need to do is. Listen. To learn. We need to. Have those uncomfortable conversations. If we're, GONNA have real change. So to that end. The Sean. was doing deal. About we go to. Take you the Holocaust Museum? And then you take me to museum, African American history and culture. Afterwards. Grab some burgers and we have those uncomfortable conversations. That was Julian. Ataman, releasing that video, yesterday and today Adam tweeted the Sean and I spoke for a while last night for making plans to use our experiences to educate one another and grow together. Stay tuned Yeah, well, that's a good it. It's gotten the Ataman. Video. He's gotten a lot of attention and it's. I guess speaks to the ongoing question about you know In the world of PITCHFORK nation. What's the better choice, is it? Disappearing Or to use the common phrase today, the cancelling of an individual as much as might be humanly possible. Based on limits. Is that the way to go when somebody crosses the line, or and it was a significant line at that, Jackson crossed or is engagement. Reaching out. Going beyond the initial shock of the mocking the ridiculing of the the the the the dangerous nature of the statements made an element is obviously trying to get from that campus says let's. Let's Talk Stanley Je John Jackson did not not not to Sean Jellison even about Steven Jackson. Yes, daily Jackson's another former Jackson got in the middle of this as well. We talked about that yesterday. and no idea what what? What he is even attempting to argue at this point, he's said he's used some on artful language about the way he at the start of a process seemed to be defending the receiver. And then he was supposed to be involved in a group chat kind of thing. That was again attempt to have some sort of a dialogue rather than a monologue on the issue. Well I don't know if that's this weekend, or if it ever perfect already happened I've actually no. Earthly, idea shall as I said I'll repeat what I said. Yesterday the elephant in the room, but this particular story is. Relatively speaking, certainly compared to the REPR- do breeze comments. The. Relative quiet in reaction to this one. There have been some people who pushed back. Athletes and others in positions of authority nowhere near as many as did with drew brees, which I think is unfortunate. Because the line that was passed by by the wide receiver in this case was for me extremely clear. Not, even a point, even a matter of any sort of interpretation at all, and it would've. It would've been nice to see if again were in this mode of reexamining everything and having even less tolerance for comments that go over the line I I'm not in a group that wants players to go away. I believe that Jackson should go away forever. I have made that point clear over and over and over again I. Don't think it serves a lot of purpose but I think there's there should have been a lot more pushback than than there has indeed been the last forty eight hour. We'll stick with football for now. I don't think it would be any surprise to any. Any NFL football fan that if there was indeed NFL football in the twenty twenty, it's most likely going to be an empty stadiums, but not so fast. The Jacksonville Jaguars say they announced plans today to hold home games in front of significantly reduced capacities this fall fans in attendance will be required to wear face coverings. The team released details in email to season ticket holders, saying it expects about twenty-five percent capacity at t I bank. At their field in twenty twenty and in compliance with state and local authorities, following CDC guideline distance guidelines. God. Bless him. They think they have something else figured out or somebody needed to write a story I have no idea. I will be. Very shocked. If indeed one thing is what you WanNa, do check the day. We're not even halfway through July. Show you can have. Plans. And everybody has to be prepared for all contingencies. I will be shocked if indeed it happens the way that Thea jags or suggesting it would. It's now Fischel again. Not Surprising you're Minnesota Vikings will not allow during whatever training camp looks like any fan participation fans shut out of training camp in for some people who love going to training Camp I've never understood why, but they do It'll be a very rude awakening, so no fans. At Vikings training camp well, that means that Al. Fish, we get shut out viking, strain against or do we still get to go onto perks? My next question is the purge going to be open. Yeah, I don't know what the rules are going to be. It's a great question. What will hopefully work on that I? Know you know media access is going to be very different, yes, and much more limited and limiting, but whether the exalted perch spot that means so much to us is away from us. Time will tell dairy, yeah, and Ben Gasoline, speaking along those same lines about Vikings training camp in the news that we all kind of expected. He talked about the fact that the vikings might be trying something different some experimental stuff with virtual. Training, Camp meant for fans so they can watch it. Does that do anything for you now? Maybe for some, maybe for some people are really rube life when it comes to their football team and training camp, and all that I'm you know training camp is usually pretty boring to me, but. I ruled nothing out. For people who are missing this a lot, maybe that sort of stuff, maybe you. You gotta try to be as creative as possible so I'm not surprised. Those efforts will be made earlier. This showy announced two weeks from today, and the Minnesota twins are supposed to start. That's major league baseball season in Chicago This development was released earlier today, Major League Baseball and the Players Union say that fifty eight players and eight staff members tested positive for Covid nineteen through the final round of the intake screening process. That's a rate of only one point eight percent, but the MLB and the union announced the results Friday as the teams moved closer to. July twenty third in the pandemic delayed season say that twenty seven of thirty teams at a person test positive MLB released the preliminary results of intake testing from last week, and said that out of thirty one hundred samples, thirty eight per- players or one point, two percent had tested positive players will now get tested every other day and hopefully are five thirty gasoline. Light on what all of this means! I think in addition buster Posey. Also, said the giants Catcher said he's. He's out I believe that I read. He's adopting a couple of infant children, his wife. That's what I've heard too and sold. That enters into the decision. They've made that collectively the two of them to say no Major League baseball well for me this year. There's going to be a I mean you know the numbers are probably GonNa go up as we get closer, I is any doubt about that. The test result numbers you gave. I don't know what. I expected that sounded pre favorable to me, but Who knows what the numbers are? That ultimately could lead to some significant challenges once they. We actually get to a place. We're going to start baseball I. THINK WE'RE GONNA start the season. I do think it's going to begin. Some people aren't even sure that's going to happen. I think there'll be a start to it. I'd be shocked if it ends on time and we close it out the way we want to same with the NBA NBA is going to start. By how long it's GONNA go. That's the those are really the key questions at this at this juncture in you probably say the same thing by the WNBA, because for the first time in almost ten months the links will take the court today. this time inside the bubble IMG Academy in Florida WNBA teams. We'll be allowed to hold up to five practices over there I three days starting today Shell Reeves said quote will be looking for. For understanding retention. Who is ready to play? There's been lots of talk about how this will all fit together, and now we'll start to see it end quote. Re said that all twelve players on the roster are expected to be available for the start of practices. A truncated twenty two game season slated to begin later this month. reminded by listener by way that rabbi I think it's Rows Wall P.. A., W.. O. L. P. E.. is the individual who is the Rabbi Sinai Temple? Los, Angeles also an author and a columnist. He's the guy. who had invited Jackson the other Jackson? To, have sort of a meeting of the minds regarding him doubling down on what the the comments that the ride receiver Jackson had to say that got this whole period. got this whole thing going album pronouncing that last name? Correctly I'm not exactly sure. We talked last segment about Adrian. WHOA, arouse skis, different kind of bomb. This was a woge f-bomb. If you're just tuning in, it was in response to a US senator from Missouri Josh Howley. who sent an email to Adam silver? Saying if the NBA bonding put social, 'cause statements on uniforms. Include quote, support our troops. Back, the blue and given how much money the NBA Makes China how about Free Hong Kong Adrian Watson. Rouse was given a SIP along with I think other ESPN writers of that mail, and to which he responded, bleep you, which was made public on twitter. He has since. Moved on twitter, we read his statements. Why won't go through that? No dog and pony show again but Charles Robinson of Yahu use a former colleague of aging roads now ski. He is disappointed in wedge decision to apologize. He says quote I'll always stand with WHOA JR, but I'm mad. He apologized for expressing himself in a private email that Jack Wagon politician aired out. you send politically motivated email. You deserve whatever response you get I. Wish I had set it twice well. The this axel sharks and jets man. In this case there's a different version of it media pro you know you. You gotta be with your guy or not your with your guy. I think I would say Charles Robinson Ehlers would be. If you're consistent with being bothered by politically motivated emails that are going out then. God, bless you I'm with you. On the issue of whether Josh Holly has any sincere desire. To discuss and to. Examine. The issues of that are concerning African. American players is pertains to police. Do I think he has any real interest in that discussion? No I think he's got zero interest I. There's no reason to believe that he indeed did the I but private email. There's no. He's in the media I. Mean Come on your. There's not there's not. There's no such thing in all honesty of private email. You send your when you're responding to. What is a press release I? I find that a little bit lacking, but there will be a lot of people lining up and I'm hoping that along the way some of examine. The possibility, just the possibility. that. No matter where you are politically that the NBA might have a little bit vulnerable. Vulnerability on this particular issue 'cause I think they do. That's all I got for top five, but I do have a keyword before we go to break. It's time for our national cash contest. We're trying to put a grand in your hand and all you gotTa, do is text. The keyword smile texts smile two hundred, two hundred for your shot to put a grand in. In your hand, Standard text message and data rates apply. Here's the plan. Six five o'clock hour of the show will include a visit with Lavelle e Neil Third, probably about five thirty or show got a couple of other stories. I want examine perhaps even a pretty good done as that. We need to get to as soon as we return right here on the fan. Sky? Lavelle Neil the third will join at about five thirty or so. Much. This a whopper. This was pretty intriguing. Included in the roughly. Ten thousand religious organizations that have received Federal Cove nineteen relief from the federal government. Are Some. Fairly well known and controversial televangelists, and what are described here as wealthy. Prosperity Gospel Preachers Wealthy Prosperity Gospel preachers. Among them. Jim Bakker. Peter popoff. Jimmy Swaggart. And Joyce Meyer. Are Among the televangelists who received millions. Yes millions in forgivable loans from the US federal government. Start with Jim Baker. He leads Morningside Church productions of Missouri. He received between three hundred fifty thousand dollars in a mill. He was defrocked by the assemblies of God after a highly publicized sexual encounter. With a church secretary and spent years in prison after being convicted of numerous fraud and conspiracy charges about Peter Popoff. He Leaves People United for Christ in California.

Nineteen these tele- Angeles among others likely raised the ire of Paul to eat before the coronavirus felt strongly that large profit generating religious organization pay their executives. Massive compensation should not be tax exempt like regular church so there it is a very impressive list right there and no doubt. They they they needed the money and certainly deserved to get. The we've had a few of these stories in other parts of industry. These P P P lawns Oregon. And I think some companies have actually. Sent the money back. Sometimes willingly sometimes because they have been. outed. So to speak and it looked like. The very bad form. Yeah Baker! He was huge. SWAGGART massive. I didn't even know swaggart still still around, but apparently. He is as well I. Don't know much about Joyce Meyer if you're great. Shall we say Crooked televangelist mind, let me know BOOTH CAFFEINE DOT COM. Is the Bradshaw. And Bryant. inbox. Oh emailer Let's cabinet in North. Minneapolis I heard this week that both the Jason Show in the weather tariffs are returning to the Studio Fox nine thirty Monday at the highly acclaimed program enough said will be returning soon. Inquiring minds want to know I'll say right now Kevin. You know as much as I do about When and if we're coming back, I don't think the program has been canceled. At least they have told us if it is. And we knew it was going to be a long slog and we're probably going to be the last to come back because you know we're a week. Lower Cute, little weekly show. And Jason Shows daily whether terrorists are daily. So I. Guess in my mind. I'd like to hope that it would. It might be September. But I don't know I I know. Technically speaking just about as much as As. As you. In that particular regard regarding training Camp Vikings Training Camp I. Think is more for the younger generation of fans. Yeah, I think that tends to be true, yeah? Apple who go forever. But there's most of the time it's. It's it's it's kids, and it's younger people who sort liked the idea of you know being relatively up close and personal. You might have a chance in an autograph. But of course, all that was going to be out of the went out the window. This year anyway, don't you think I mean that was never? There was never in ally, autographs or anything like that this year. That is one hundred percent correct, so in any case we'll we'll. We'll keep an eye on all of those things On the question of advice at Twenty Dr. Phil, from Saint Michael Writes Best Advisor Twenty Six. Maybe the dangers of wearing Bermuda shorts in Texas. Which is not bad? It's a pretty good line I don't know if how many people Even, know or understand. That story it was. It's too and I'm not even sure I completely remember. The, genesis of at the start of it, but. I think somehow. I think this was still I might have still been writing than. and. Somebody was mad at me about something. and was very dismissive of what I've written in wanted to be dismissive about me, and it was something the effect of that he you know. Why should I pay attention to him? He got fired in Dallas in Dallas. The Dallas Morning News for wearing Bermuda. Shorts. which was news to me? because a I wasn't a big Bermuda shorts wearer, and be I didn't get fired from Dallas. Morning News But I came to find out. Find out later that some in some weird way. The. The emailer head confused me with some. sushi array rant about Bermuda shorts. Somehow he put the two of us together. Invented a section of it, but it became very quickly part of the Fan Lore at that juncture. And so ever since I've kind of gone along with it that you know, one of my regrets is I got fired for in Dallas in Texas for wearing Bermuda shorts when there was no truth to it I think that's where it began. The funniest thing about this for me is I've known you now. I've worked here for ten years. I always just took that I thought that was real. I never knew that you were accused wrongfully accused of being fired yeah, it was. That was real, equally important, wrongfully accused Bermuda short right. What's the distinction? What are Bermuda shorts? A specific kind of shore? I just had to go. Look it up because I wasn't sure either. It's dated reference I've yet. So from the images I'm seeing when you when you put in Bermuda shorts and pops up with all these images. It's kind of like a Capri style pants, but they're cut off above the knee. Rather than you know your Capris, are usually around your calf so they it looks like they're almost like tight jeans I turned into shorts because they're either rolled up or cut off just above the knee cap above the KNEECAP. Well, what is fashionable today are sure as a fashionable short. The entire niyaz covered or is it less than that it's what is the current. Shorts are making a comeback can't stand though yeah I know back in the ninety stockton shorts. He used to wear with the Utah Jazz see that coming more and more I. Think we're GonNa Start in the NBA again. You know if you go to a you're you're a pool? If you're going out to Maui unfortunately, might guys in a lot shorter bathing suits. You didn't ten fifteen years ago to. They're making a comeback. That's too bad I. I But that yeah, that is sort of the the history of it and I don't like I said I I. Don't know that we've talked about it on air. People just like you as well apparently assuming yeah, that that was indeed the case email Peter I'm not sure what. Prompts this email. Why don't you guys ever mentioned that? The eighty percent accurate that gives a twenty percent margin. A false positives slash false negatives I. Don't know. Is that the percentage? It might welby. That's a subject we can explore with a male clinic. Big knocker Dr Maurice perhaps next. As early as next week. I I knew there were some false. You know not. Every test was accurate and a lot of times. It also has to do with how how. Safely the test is administered. Got It? There's there's procedure there. It's got to be administered the right way I don't know I'll be glad to, but if If! It's if the twenty percent false positive, false negatives true and they're equally true than. The numbers. So if the numbers are eighty percent accurate. What is that telling US I mean they're still through the roof and a number of states the. Positive tests through the roof. Even if you would make it from one hundred percent down to eighty percent, they're still. I think fairly historic in number of states in the south, and also in California's through the roof to which should not be. At all a forgotten Robert Rights to comment halstead a major part in law because he would bring it up all the time in the Bermuda shorts thing yes, he did. He, he may have some of the stuff. He has a better memory of than I. Do even though I'm meet. And it's about me so I. He may fill in the gap. I'll ask them next time I. See him or well. I don't really why do I guess him? Between shelves today was he got my rocket after the bad blood between him, and rose up the show common was he added he was ready to get out of here. Maybe it's good that Rosen's off next week. Yeah, it'd probably is the way that their program ended. It probably has got A little bit on the definitely on the ugly side. Let's get a pause, and now we'll prepare for Lavelle e Neil third bottom of the hour. Friday regular See how ready he is for a major league baseball season what his own impressions have been. being I'm assuming sometimes around the team at so-called training camp practice sessions. It's after and maybe get to a couple of other stories as well Lavelle is with us in just a couple of. Two weeks two weeks from today. If all goes according to plan. Your Minnesota twins. We back in action in Lavelle e Neil the third favourite city in America. Illinois where he's from? Are you getting emotional about it or are you still Lavelle? Not Convinced that this thing is actually going to start i. think it's going to start first of all. Thanks for having me on could have. Get Sounds Baseball in the background. That does not count as lavelle Bingo today. made the throwing. To some shrimp Hannah hitter who I can't recognize right now, right? Now Yeah, it's. Distracting so far! So, but Yeah I'm looking forward to it and it's funny. It's ironic that it's going to be in Chicago playing both the cubs and the white. SOX! Deborah's. Texted, my sister's Hey, just one, it'd be in town on the twenty second. That's one plane. The cubs are the white sox. And she said don't even bother trying to visit me and start giving me all this. All these virus protection plans going out and buying. Immune system boosters and All this stuff, so. guess I won't have a family reunion very very on. Go ahead. Just a just be there to cover based in hit the road so quite an emotional reaction from your sister. You're right man that you know well. You know All seriousness I mean I agree with you I think I'll be shocked if the season does not start. On time, but I like a lot of people probably a lot more pessimistic. We get everybody together on a regular basis. That you know the things not going to get out of control. I hope it doesn't. Like everybody. There's no doubt about that and I'm not sitting here pretending I know. But I think it's it's. I don't know I'm curious when you're around players to the degree, you're allowed to be around them and management so forth. That deep down. No matter what they're saying publicly. What do you think they feel in that regard privately today think there's a you know that there's a good chance. We're GONNA start, but still not a real good chance. We're GONNA. Finish or do you get any kind of feel from them? It's hard to get a feel just from talking to the players in the zoom chats. I mean. Oh, worried I mean they're. They're worried about Well I take that back. A couple of guys are skeptical I think Mitch Garber is probably. Skeptical that distinct could be pulled off without some sort of stoppage He's. He's worried about testing. They're worried about someone test positive on a road trip. You Know House, get home, families. You know the it's been a big debate here. Some guys brought their families with them. Some guys want when their families to be safe where they're staying at you know. We just zoom with Marlins Alison Marin family here and he's got two kids owned. We've been pretty much warranty, and we're not going out. And I'm like that's along some for two kids. If they gotta stay in the House all summer. You know it's true. That's that's tough. That's a challenge for a parent. trust me because I've got friends who have parents and they've been pulling the hair out, sometimes, 'cause they're their kids more than used to mall. Trust me I can I can testify for no doubt no doubt about that. Yet so I think I think you'll find I. Think you find some people who are worried at? This is going to be pulled off, but other people are trying to be optimistic we'll see. it just. How many punches can the league take before knocked down and out by the state as to be question, you know I'm I'm of curious about the brave situation Freeman, apparently frank seamans I do to get. I guess Nick Marquette has decided to out after talking this three Freeman on the phone. And he said Freddie to not sound good on the phone so. So it's a little heart, and once that goes around in the team mates, their partners in crime. Start falling around him. You Know House economic effect, the guy there's a mental. There's a mental health component to this that these guys gotta deal with as far as not living a lifestyle. They're used to living on a row and you know staying in all the time Marin said that the. The land clears ended up playing call of duty with each other like four to five hours every day. Yeah, because. You know. Can can guys hold it together for for two plus months to get through? This shortened season we'll see. While the yeah, the, there's no answer. We just don't know it. Just we have to let play out and see where it goes, but I think there is yeah, there's there's some significant questions. That have nothing to do with preparation in this case Even if the testing gets up to snuff, and there's been some frustration about how often tests are being done and even the the speed with which they're coming back in with a couple, teams are right, even if you do everything perfect, the unknown is how it's going to spread, and if it reaches a number that just makes it impossible to have games. You know not necessarily everybody's getting really really sick, but that they're not available because they're testing positive for that for that short period of time and you have you know at some point you have enough people to play. Absolute we're seeing this in with MLS right now, because the entire Dallas team had the party PLOB- of the MLS back tournament, and now I'm reading on our website starts dot com that loons first opponent the Kansas City. Sorry. Sporting Kansas City has a player who just tested positive. So what's what's going to happen? Now? You know couple more teams plow. They're out of there, so. it's You know you're crushing and fingers I mean if three. A weeks away from all this and we were just com- back sports back. We get back to some Romney. We need stuff to talk about you know. Less gets closer. You start thinking about all the all the things ways of thinking. Go wrong and just makes it makes you makes you. You know I. Did get a kick today? The stuff you guys had in the Strip about the use of the robot umpire behind home plate for thousand strikes and for me. It was a vindication because I said well. Here's a very small sample size. Obviously, but what it reminded me of because there are all kinds of complaints about. It wasn't all that consistent I was, too. Too Perfect sometimes not perfect. Knock enough other times a lot of players where it didn't seem to love it and it to me just confirms my belief all along that, even if you have robot umpires and the science is that this is the perfect strike zone. This is exactly the way it's supposed be. It will change nothing for players and fans feeling that there wasn't consistency. They got squeezed. Which I think is proof that whether you put human back there to make the calls or you put a robot back there. It Ain't GonNa change the mentality of your average major league. Baseball player I also wanted to. The. Strike Zone adjustment for guy who's five nine versus a guy. Fine you know, does it take an encounter that I'm not sure how the? Is calibrated to. To handle those types of differences but Yeah it was pretty funny I. I was not at the in the squad gang yesterday. I was working ahead on a Sunday project, but I had a head. The action on to the twins were live streaming the workout on their on their facebook feet, so I had it on and heavy pretty funny. 'cause a pitch was thrown home plate, and there is a pause, and then the hitter kind of looks behind you know looks backstop at some guy. Go. A strike you know. It was Kinda comical from that standpoint. Yeah welcome to the new boss same as the old boss right. You have been around some though I. Think what. What is it like around? The ballpark right. Right right now, there's no squad game today. It's kind of a recovery day, so you just got a couple of guys thrown live EP Kenta Maeda in I think Devon smelter taking turns Thrown lie batting practice to hitters get like. Six guys in the outfield. bunch of people behind behind. The backstop here, so there's get screen setup pine home plate, so guys don't get killed as the up against the wall. Right behind home plate. There's music going. It wasn't pumping like it was yesterday. And, pretty interesting. How they have this place set out because. Dairies in the concourses, guys like stretching and getting some work in on the concourse be spread out mb outside right. Rocco has his office like over by the Sausage Stan. Right. Right the right size yeah on the first base side on course, so they're using this space as well as can keep people spread out in. Into a lot for as much outdoor activities possible and that's pasta. Help avoid. Getting the fact I guess so makes sense. Yeah, absolutely it it. It has to be. I mean you got all the great all. Use It as much as you can out that's. When the weather when it's raining, that's a different issue. Things are I, think would get a little more complicated, but a lot of that stuff's protected so. You know we have A. WE HAVE TO TAKE A to come coming with come in through the back entrance of the stadium. fill out a questionnaire. Have any symptoms? No, no, no, no, no, no, no get your temperature taken out. That's been interesting. The temperature thinks been interesting. My this is my sixth time I've been here in. My temperature has been. Ninety seven. Point Zero Ninety. Seven Point Zero, ninety seven point, two, nine, one, zero, ninety seven point one. That's ninety seven point zero. It's been at every day, isn't that? What's that all about that? I just think I'm just one cool. Cat Yeah you're cool. That'd be something like that well. A Lot I'm not sure. Yeah, nothing There's nothing wrong necessarily with that lavelle. The third is with us. He is on the Opel. Which is pretty good right now and you at the ballpark right now. Yes, I'm standing the press right now. What are the press box rules going to be? Is it going to be like we can like? Make it for games themselves one third one fourth full. How is that being Handler d? Do you know yet? Right now the I do because I was on conference calls with the League. Office about this The maximum allowed is thirty five. You have thirty five people in the press box. Denko's radio and TV people so in debt allows for. Social distancing rollock spread out six feet apart right now. Actually there's no one on my side of the press box I know. The other riders on the left side. They're spread out six feet apart. Yeah, but We'll have to wear masks. All interviews will be done on Zoom I. Think I'm going GONNA. Give us boxed meals. To eat yeah, and the twin threatening to cater and I'm like okay. It'd be pretty interesting that because if you start you. Start going on catering train in start mixing it up. You know to be honest will one day it'd be. You know. He's a great restaurants and in town that we can. Now we could say apple miles their businesses to Saigon from thinking. I'm just going to get like a sub sandwich. Chips to thicken. Hey, this could be pretty tasty. You know When we'll see. We could bring we bring our philosophy wind as we do. Have One of the purse of the. Writers on the beat is a vegetarian, so she's. She's been cleared to bring your own food if she wishes so. Under these conditions there any sensible way or fair way for you to get any kind of a handle on the team itself as as compared to what you might be able to do during a normal spring training period. That's a that's a great question and the next degrade unknown. I'm doubting it right now because the. You know. The great thing about this job is being in the clubhouse and being able to have private conversations with guys you know we can. We can make request to the twins one zoom conversations, but it's not the same as being able to sign up to a guy in the corner. You know, ask them about a play. Ask Him about his contract from about something. And sometimes it only takes thirty seconds for you to get a scoop, you know we really want to go through the whole. Set Up to zoom conversation with a player knowing that the PR guys probably GonNa be listening in on it as well you know. It's. Not, going to lead to effective. Working Situation. What we have to do with too much, you know I. Don't know any other way, or there isn't an and again. It's the same in every occupation as you know they're they. There are a lot of adjustments that are having to be made unfortunately, and and for you. It's hard because it's the lifeblood of what a reporter does. Is You create relationships? You try to then lean on those relationships at times where you're trying to get information and that is the. And it's definitely being interrupted. Significant way which might. Have some impact on what you're able to write on a given note. That's just sort of the area right now. I, have I do have a lot of phone numbers of player through and I actually actually reached out to a player on twitter in this dropped into his DM's. Last week to ask him about. His off season weight loss, you know we could back and forth ended up writing about it. You know so so I. Do have some tools to box. That may be able to use by our know how. How frequently it will work some guys pride and want me to try to contact them on the phone. There's like a handful guys who I know if I- SEMATECH afire back. You know right there cool, but other people may not. Even bother to respond to me so but I gotta try I. Mean That's all you got. You have to cook with it ingredients. They gave be mad so. there was an interesting quote. You guys had from Buxton I think it was in the paper yesterday which I talked about yesterday as well. In which it's the first time in a while that he's explored the ongoing issue of trying to be. US to stay on the field and whether there is an adjustment that he is now thinking he can make regarding you know not sacrificing his body to the degree that he has in the future, and of course in the passage should say, and of course it's been sometimes hitting the wall sometimes moving forward. It's been both directions for for Buxton. I, thought he what he said made sense I guess we're not gonNA. Really know how I mean. It sounds like he basically said I I've really come to at now. At peace with the idea of there are some things I can do whether it's understanding how to hit a wall better learning to be on two feet, sometimes rather than one that he has come to the conclusion. There's some adjustments he could make. which I think is good news, and it's welcome to hear now. We're not GONNA know. If he's looking different in any meaningful way or maybe even too cautious until you see him out there in a regular basis, but. It makes sense to me that he's tried to come to this place whether he's studying video or how he's doing it. It's a pretty important issue. Now may all go by the wayside given. It's a sixty game season and we not do it I. Don't know if it's GonNa play out for whole sixty games, but for the future long-term Future Byron. Buxton it's a, it's A. It's a crucial issue is not. It. Is I it? Significant I think is whatever plan he wants. I want to see. It implemented. Okay. How much how it works because! I still think that wants game. Start in. There's a ball hit in his area that he's just going to react to it in. Do what he's normally done. which is like defy? Put his life on the line trying to make a catch. You know so I I'm curious to see how it looks if he starts pulling up. Instead of catching balls Kinda pulls up a couple of fallen and. How people are gonNA react to that houses how the pitchers GonNa react to that you know but You know it's it's a hell. It's a hell of an issue for a guy who's minster talented was incredibly fast, and when he's into twins lineup they they win more than they do when he's not in. That's that was proven yesterday, I think mean last year. It was proven in other years as well. So, he's got to come up with something to distill. Cover as much ground as possible without killing himself like. That's IT and again. The great irony, you know. He came up a guy that was viewed as a five to a player. He may not ever end up being that kind of a dominant hitter i. mean he still got time? I'm not ruling it out, but he might not. What has changed me about Buxton is even if he never becomes I kind of hit her. Be As long as he's on the field and he's playing center field as well. I don't even think people are going to be that bug bite. He's become literally a force as a defensive player alone to such a degree that I. don't I. Don't believe people are going to be as bothered by his offense. Not being quite were supposed to be as they might have originally. Yeah I I. think offensively I. Don't know if he's ever going to be at three hundred hitter, but I think he gets sixty. And you know. He drives a ball halfway. Decent could see him during one hundred sixty two game schedule. Getting the eighteen or twenty home runs. No, I you know it'd be cool. You know that. I think he could hit, you know. Thirty five to forty doubles knowing homerun like twelve triple. Yeah, that'd be great for young all regardless of what the bad marriages you know so and plus you you you factor in the glove work. You have pretty damn good all around player that not too many other baseball teams in the in this game in this league hat. Are you going to drive or fly to Chicago. On driving everywhere driving everywhere, it's officially yet well. Part to this is this is a made for us because some teams are going to have a posse that if you fly into their city, you will not be allowed into the ballpark. Test or quarantine for fourteen days Nelson Wall yeah so I've I've I've told my boss's boss's cool? They said look. If you WANNA travel. There's money in the budget. If you don't want your worried about safety, we understand you know. Analysts there's some risk, but also think this is a rather unique year in our lives, and it needs to be chronicle from different angles. And especially if we're going to have a team that's come on June one wins. Try To win the division. Again I think we need to either so The longest longest drive for me is going to be eight hundred sixty nine miles to Pittsburgh, baby. That's the longest one on the schedule for me to a hike, so yeah, there's a hike. It is seen parts of the country I've never seen before, but can you know? Can you get a driver? No. I'm not. In a planning on taking my car, because part of the reason of driving is one. Tim be a lot of wear and tear laval. Stay off the plane. True I stay out of a rental car. My car, my surface true. So better. Get an think. Tuned up before you go on that first couple of trips. It's running pretty good. Right. Well, it, will we you know we're getting closer I mean it two weeks from today, like I said, and then the exhibition game is the exhibition game with the cubs the day before two days before two days before on the twenty second. Off The twenty third right and Then the the white sox opening in twenty four. Hey, have you gotten any kind of indication from the twins about what their own approach is? GonNa be about piping in sound for Home Games on the. Either four again the players themselves and or for the TV broadcast. There is a rumor. Don't know if it's true or not. There's a rumor that the League is going to provide some sort of standardized. Background noise teams play at the state. So we'll see apparently underproduction now i. think that's true, so. They have to have something. They can't have a quiet ballpark because. You'll be able to hear everything, and I don't think teens want their conversation now. On the field to be able to be deciphered by the other team and also a couple years ago when the mount I don't know if you remember the white sox in the in the oils had the play game without sands because a riding adult. Now Right! And the players have a game like they could hear like the the announcers talk about. So. You're going to need some background. Noise her just to keep everything. On an even Keel here so so I think it's you been watching the some of the Korean league. Leaks have pipe in noise and English premier league has background fan noise so I think. Looks like baseball was gonNA. Follow suit with that by the way last, but least perhaps the most important question. Are you a fan of Bermuda shorts? No I think the hideous why they come in an coming back in style well, that's according to Ryan. Donaldson, yes, if at least a shorter shorts are coming back into into style and they just want to be. There too and whether you believe it or not. Hold on for a second one here on a pair of shorts. It might be dated reference. A lot of people might not know what that means down shorts. No. One person reacted like what's Bermuda shorts. That's are not no one else Adam. No. Okay, it's good. If, they're those are coming back back Danny get ready. For the next on? That means the leisure suit may be play here one of these years. The polyester down those are very. Dapper looking and look and and you very. They're very comfortable material to as well very comfortable material in the especially in the heat. Right stay safe. Stay Dry. And we'll chat next week if not sooner. Absolutely see you next week will be a week away, yeah? It'll be hopefully it'll be a squad game going on, so we can get. Jared to get something going for sure thanks Laval. Manatee Lavelli Neil the third the Opel did very well. I think this is about as good an Opel appearance. We've had with Lavelle in many many many months. If not years well Bradshaw Bright Inbox is open booth caffeine dot com if you'd like to react. To our baseball conversation with Lavelle, and also when we return. Worse than Covid nineteen. Slow cable often. Bear several diseases afflicting the nation as we speak. And one of them. Has Been revealed. Again today. We had quoted from a letter. I think it was last week the week before I lose track of time. From the the hoity-toity. American pediatric organization I don't have the actual title in front of me, but it's the big one. And it had set out released a letter. That called strongly called for. A return to class for the. Students K through twelve especially. They laid out the reasons for that belief. They acknowledged the challenges that went into it. But I think the effort was an attempt. To change the discussion slightly. And to say. We to our doctors. We to are scientists. and. We believe that not enough attention is being paid to. Different costs that are not economic. That might be. Social. Might be mental. Might be a number of really important things that are about the welfare. Of the student population. And I'm glad they did it. We talked about it a couple of times including as recently as yesterday. With Mayo Clinic Big knocker. A Doctor Maurice! Interestingly today that same organization! Has released a statement. In Which? They're doing a semicircle Wonga. From their original positioning. And they are doing it for one reason. And one only. Because the president of the United States is trying to co-opt that subject. And, so now it's can't force. It got to be safe at CETERA etc.. Nothing more pernicious about the political landscape right now. Then this story. Sort of revealing it in a nutshell. Here's my moral. Here's my message in my opinion. Whatever position you take about kids going back to school. please. Please please. Make It. About the merits versus the cost. Versus the obvious health issues. Don't make your decision. Be predicated on whether the president is pushing for it. And that's sadly what becomes the way we do all of this stuff. So suddenly, even if you. Wanted us to have that discussion. Were pushing to have that discussion. Wolf the president wants it. I can no longer abide by it. It has to be a bad thing. In this works both ways. Because the president pushes it. Debt should not have to make it automatically a good thing either. But I hate where this leaves those of us in the middle politically. I really do. That you end up having to run from subject because well, trump got a hold of it. He co-opted it. Case closed. I'm out now. I can't get near it because if I get near it. I'm going to be viewed as. Basically being a parrot for the president the United States. You don't have to be a parrot for the President United States and still. Hope and push that. We have an open discussion about this and that we don't turn it into. What do you want more people to die? that it may be a little bit more complicated than that, and that lives are being affected now I have not I've said before I'm not here telling you, schools must open. Because, I think the date is. tells us that that's an impossible question to answer. We don't know where we're going to be in another month. You can make plans as doc. Maurice said to have all your contingency plans in place and to me the plan right now should be to have as good a plan as sensible and safe. A planet you have can have for attempting to put students back in school. Maybe an a tiered form, maybe a couple of days a week. Were you stagger it as complicated that that could be, but I just shake my head where now? A group of doctors of scientists. Who sent out a very coherent message? That was not demanding schools. Go back, but was saying we got to really work hard to to to try to give ourselves the best chance to do that. Now feels forced because trump. Has Gotten in the middle of it daft back away from it and I dare say there are a lot of people who now who may have been thinking that. Yeah, that's something I. I think we've got to really strongly consider. Depending on how this plays out over the course of the next to next two months especially in Minnesota where the numbers. To be very good, knock on wood, relatively speaking, we all know how it can change over two week increments. Dr Maurice tells us, but. Now I got a back away from it. Because why can't like anything that he likes now his problem is he's so poorly articulates his position. that. No one comes away I think convinced on the basis of the way. He goes about explaining it because he can't explain anything. He has no ability. To crystallize a subject like that. And even offer up. What might be classified as a well thought-out precise plan or plan of Attack In that regard? Show anybody listens. This show knows I don't defend the president much and I'm really not defending him here, but what I am saying is. We Let. We let the trump terrorist win. If you go to a different place on a subject and run from it the minute, the president injects himself into it because if you're anti-trump, that's your obligation. As opposed to say well now he's not handling it very well. He's not giving us any reason to have any confidence in his ability to actually have. Pieced together talk to experts about how our best chance might be to get to that place, but that to me doesn't mean you throw out the baby with the bathwater. And then you gotta run from it the way the pediatricians now are running from a perfectly sensible letter that they sent out yesterday and I thought it was important, because we've talked forever about wanting to follow the scientists and the doctors and not the politicians. And these are other doctors. They have a specialty, but I thought they had an important message that needed to be told, and that we needed to be reminded of, and now it's it's losing its impact because they've along a bit because they felt obligated Sarong a bit because the president is now viewed as pro going back to school so now you have to explain yourself if you were also pro going back. To School. What's worse than Covid nineteen? Well there's an unknown pneumonia sweeping. Kazakhstan this is according to Forbes Dot Com. That was highlighted by the Chinese Embassy a fair warning to their biggest silkroad partner in Central Asia. Story broke yesterday Friday. Kazakhstan rejected. China's warning of a new bug circulating on its home turf the South China. Morning Post. Reported yesterday that the Chinese Embassy was getting nervous about a spike in pneumonia cases over the last five weeks. Death rate of this disease is much higher. Than Corona novel coronavirus, the country's health departments are conducting comparative research into the pneumonia virus, but have yet to identify it. That's according to the embassy and a warning to Chinese citizens in the country. Kazakhstan public health officials. They say it's just standard ammonia. It's not good, but it's just standard pneumonia so. Again. The China record on a being truthful regarding these sorts of things ain't exactly distinguished either so I. Don't know who to believe you believe Kazakhstan, or do you believe China Kazakhstan? San Calm down no big deal. There's no new score that's going to wipe out. The world. But it is I thought good Click Bait and worthy at least of Mentioned as well. There was another think superbug on a bug, but super virus. That there was some concern. Some Chinese signs had his like is in pigs. But it hadn't made the jump to humans yet I believe I. Don't remember what that one was caught. That one has a name I meant to ask. Big knocker about that yesterday, but We have not. We have not been able to Discuss that subject with him. We'll do that perhaps next week as well Let's get to the. We'll get a break here and we got the shore up. Remind you what you might have missed early in the show before we do one last chance this week. To put a grand in your hand, that's exactly right. It's time it's your shot to put grant in your hand. It's our national cash contact. You can text the keyword. Thanks text thanks to two hundred, two hundred to enter standard text message and data rates. The Bumper to bumper show rap. Exactly what it is! Very collected program today. We appreciate those of you who? Hung around for any or all of it. Special guests today, lavelle email the third Friday regular. Lots of good baseball chatter with him. Really a a lot of speculation about whether we're going to. Actually we're going to see a season. Then, he and I are agreement. It'll start. Question is how long will it go? Will we get will get anywhere near sixty games and or to a post season? I'm still pessimistic in that regard. We also talked about the robot umpire. Controversy in fact, that was the start the show. Tailing Of apparently with a very vicious. Angry end to the program where Common Rosen almost came to blows to several sources now confirming it. An had to do with The question of. Strike zones in different umpires having different strike zones. They went at it pretty good so that was the star of the show that was part of the discussion with Lavelle. We went to the a section for some sobering news, regarding more violence overnight. In Minneapolis. Saint Paul I think it was nine more shot, one killed. and lead to some questions and some e mails and very earnest conversation with a lot of folks via the phones. And a Bradshaw Bryant inbox as well. Got Done as item related to some very well known fraudulent televangelists who apparently were among those who? Got A lot of that P P P money and needed it. Badly. I think those really and we talk about the. Controversy. which is kind of ongoing as we speak that debate has also become sharks. Versus the jets, which is like everything else. That's where we are in two thousand twenty Donaldson helped us out today with the Garnsey out. is also out. On Sunday, which means after sermons, which will be nine to eleven. Keisha will be hosted by Ron. The very controversial. Ron Johnson should be good one, so that should be very good. Look forward to that will be. I'll be able to at least you on my mask on. When he comes in hope, you'll have a mask on when he comes in. And we'll We'll chat about some things. I'm sure very opinionated man. I'll just itchy. I don't talk show well I tweeted. There's no question about that and he might deserve one as well slowly, He did after I tweeted then. I stopped by Portillo's to do a little show prep for the bumper to bumper program. Getting the mindset he said and I said I'm in regards these. Are you know what better day to get? Portillo's before bumper to bumper shirt. He's in regards E. ON. On Sunday, so he was wondering what he should do to prepare. The phones regards the in that chair, so maybe we can get. Some ideas suggested to him over on twitter. He I'm sure he I. Don't have his twitter handle, but it's pretty simple. I think actually I don't remember what it is that three Ron Johnson it. That's exactly what it is. I give them some ideas about directions. That you indeed would would like to go. We did also. Talk about the fact that the minister while heavy. A dog again this year. Correct, and this is this year. It's a golden I believe. That's exactly right, herby. No, no, that's who I wanted it to be. No had a different Hobie Hobie Fraser was the old dot is hoping. Is that a dog name? It's I like like Hobie first dog. You don't see too many homes out there. Maybe in Minnesota with Hobey Baker, you guy. We've got to get on pretty soon. Is Tim she'd? We haven't had it in him on while he's always good. RADIO FOR US I might even work on that for Sunday if not Sunday for Monday curious know his view on the effort to put together the season if he thinks it's going to happen. How comfortable he would be. To be out there. What do you say it's just? It's one of those life's risks that I'd be willing to take I. Don't know so. Maybe we'll try to catch up with him if not Sunday. Early next week as as well, he's always good on the subject of baseball. And several other things as as well The the line of tonight is the usual on Friday evening. We'll have overtime with curly Sukkur, and then I'm assuming Dan Patrick. Will follow it seven. We also did talk. Bermuda shorts today we I tried to tell the story as best I can remember it. About being fired for wearing Bermuda shorts. From The Dallas Morning News which never I thought, most people by definition would say. How could someone get dismissed? From a publication for wearing Bermuda shorts that it would, it would seem impossible because I don't think. Anybody newspapers is likely to get dismissed for where I'm immune shorts. Now there may be some papers have dress codes. Yeah, but I thought it would be so preposterous that most people would know it's a bit, and then there was never any true to it. Come to find out that among the people who still believed it was U S I absolutely. I never knew that was just a bit. I should've saw the story. Yeah, that's it so and then you found out that Bermuda. Shorts are coming back. and Bermuda shorts. I got an email from a couple of people saying that They think they're very stylish looking so bad. Yeah I mean if you can pull it off not. So often little more of that way. Key. That's the key half to have. Less than hideous looking knees right? Isn't that part of it to or not? On if you're brave enough to show off. By you, know what go for whatever floats your boat very liberating. I regard why high. Why hide your the hideous nature of your knee caps or your lower thought. We just don't want any body shaming going on, so if you're gonNA, wear them. You know just be nice about at parts very very true Lots of good emails today as as well and a cheap shot about you and your top five at five by Jacksonville the jags saying they were going to have fifteen thousand people. In the seats and somebody said Isn't their season ticket base about fifteen thousand so they. Social Distance Anyway those jokes with the walls. Why not? The Jacksonville Jaguars as well Donaldson?

Our two of titillating sports. Channel Down. To. tittle what you gotta come on in and come on back, one, eight, hundred, eight, seven play now, the two hours to go and there's open lines the rest of the way. Nice to have you with US whatever y'all doing and what y'all heard. What did you hear by the way? You treat your staff terribly like Ellen. Is that why I'm called the Ellen of sports. Talk not not common. Welcome back to the show one, eight, hundred, eight, seven, eight, player Dominic read a tell all book. It'll was the worst talk. But Four. Days into the Major League baseball season, we had this huge marlins outbreaks so. As I said somebody. On My facebook fan page and said, now I hate this, it makes buster look smart and I said no bus are already looked smarty as to premature born twins. In, need this to look smart. I know what she's saying, but that's not what it is. But people have reacted around baseball. One of them was David Price, they would price opted to. Not, play giving up his cash and much to the dodgers shogren. In today's, I'm sure behind the scenes, Adam. Friedman and. Magic, Johnson, and the Guggenheim family and Dave Roberts were all like you dirty son of A. But on paper, we applaud David Prize for taking the proper steps to ensure what's safer him and we completely support. You can't say, just play dummy. But anyway, David price opted out. So. After what happened with the? He put out a tweet and he said now we all caps really get to see of MLB is going to put players health I. Remember when Manfred said players health was all caps paramount. Art of the reason I'm at home right now is because players health wasn't being put I I can see that hasn't changed. You. Know what? The first thing. I. Noticed about this tweet. was that everything was spelled right and the punctuation was correct and he used double spacing and then I thought Oh. Yeah. David price went to vanderbilt, which is the Stanford or the Harvard of the. These are the things I noticed. David price has been really outspoken. the one time I didn't agree with him was when he had is little chat with Dennis Eckersley who's broadcasting on Nessin. New England sports network and ECKERSLEY had some criticism to say about the team and then David Price. Shut him out, and there was almost a little confrontation on the team plane one time. It would prices also the guy who said I'll stay up all night plan fortnight. y'All can kiss it. So, he's his own guy number. One overall pick. So? He believes that the League is attempting to just finish the season rather than focus on the health of the players yet. Thank. Or? If. You wanted to just put health i. Then you would not do or you would commit to the bubble like I just reported with the NBA said no new cases. I think the more interesting response from the DUGOUT. Was In our nation's capital. District of Columbia They Martinez World Champion. World champion manager. He's very concerned. And Jesse. Dorothy who covers the team said. Well, Dave Martinez is pretty emotional right now, he says the players are his family and he's already lost a lot of sleepless month. When asked about whether? He has doubts about going to Miami this weekend. He said, hopefully, they make the right decision. That's all I'm going to say. Well, right after that, you might remember that the Washington nationals voted we don't want to go. So, then Martinez was asked, where's your concern on a scale of one to ten? He said it wasn't eight, and now it's about a twelve. Now. Here's the other thing about day. Martinez. You might remember from last September. He was battling some health issues themselves. He said I'm scared I. Really Am. and. There are different levels of being scared. Like in my own family, like my older brother who has health concerns. He doesn't want to go outside. And I'm like, if you do this or that you'll be fine. He's like I don't want risk. What am I gonNA do call them the P. Word. Now. I'm be like. All right. We'll do what you gotta do. And Derek Jeeter, of course, put out his statement saying it's the correct decision to host phone the. Games. You Know I. Don't think that baseball is completely evil for trying to play these games. I. Think It's worth attempting looking at and you think about well. You know. Maybe we did it wrong. They talked about doing a bubble. It talked about doing a bubble in Arizona and the players to almost to a man said, Oh hell now. There is no way. And by the way speaking of David, price opting out. and. You had Clayton Kershaw, the dodgers who got scratched on opening day because he had a back issue and now the dodgers put Alex would. This morning. Because he has shoulder inflammation. Would on Saturday at a rough debut, he had three runs in three innings and. Insert giants lineup that is not scaring on paper anyway. I. Think about that. The giants. Will I took two from the dodgers? We know that went to Houston besides would. The dodgers had used three other pitchers, Dustin May. The crazy hair who started opening day the first rookie to start opening day for the dodgers since Fernando Rostro. Playing, and Julio. reas. Means Walker Beulah who pitched yesterday and has era almost five he he's by far the best pitcher right now. But you think about the turnover. was in the rotation last year he on Jin Ryu. On Toronto, Kenta Maeda Gone Richhill gone. You're talking about like seventy starts between those guys right now. This is why a lot of people say this. This is this is where the padres are going to take that step forward, the partners in the first place and yesterday the giants. Had their opening day, and it was a little creepy. Because there's no one there and hundred pence waved his hat to the our board fans and you had micro screaming God. ECHO. Echo Rennell Brooks, Moon Longtime, very nice lady. Used to work with our TV and early nineties, but Rennell. She did the LINEUPS and that was a little eerie maybe. It was. It always amazes me to you know how people always think. Rules for everyone else. It's like when I had to get my real ID driver's license a couple of weeks ago I had to stand in line at the MVP. Weren't taking appointments, and I had to stand in line for two hours and I felt good that I got in and out in two hours because I thought, it could have been four or five six hours. But as I'm standing in line for two hours and there were, it was going around the block, there were probably at least fifty people in line when everyone walked up, they all said. And you could see it in their eyes of they didn't say it out loud on on on on on this. I'm not waiting in this line. This line can't possibly be for me and they would all walk to the front. They would all. They'd say, no, you need to get in line I like. ME. Yeah, you you need to get in line. Do what you gotta do. It's always like, oh, it's not me. That's for everyone else. And I forgot what my point was there, but anyway we have. Losing my mind in my house. By the way, my commute walking downstairs is much better than going an hour to San Francisco. I have to say, that's one of the very few bright spots. But all right, we'll take a quick break lines are open. What you gotTa talk a little NFL as well.

Announced this hour. The twenty twenty United States Golf Open whenever I hear the US Open I think tennis I would never in a million years. Thank all. The. US Open Tells you where my brain is because I'm sure a lot of people think the exact opposite. The US Open to me is Arthur ash center and rushing meadows all that thought. US Open Golf will be officially now held without fans at winged foot. One, hundred, and twentieth. U. S. Open. And It's GonNa like different, of course than they said what else they're going to say, the says ongoing health and safety concerns from the Kobe nineteen panic blah blah. State of New York. Was Of course Normally, held in GIN, and this is up in. Meron Memoranda that's it man Moronic New York. Mammogram New York, that's where they test for. US. To See, if you have breasts and I quit. But the krona virus, of course, is non under control. We heard from the world. Health Organization today that. said. there's no season for this virus. There is no cold and flu season. It's not in waves. There's no second wave. That they. Now believe it's just one big wave. and. They're surprised that there's huge outbreaks where the temperature is one hundred degrees every day. They're saying this virus. Give a damn about hot weather. Something that a lot of people assumed when it gets hot, it'll just disappear said some people. Thought. But now. And Sell. It was in April when they said wing deferred and the USDA, not playing this in Jan.. Richest it's just not going to happen. So they're going to do it September seventeenth through twenty without. Fans. And CEO of USGA. Mike. Davis. Rates, safety for the raiders. overrated outfielder for the as dodgers. He said all way months of consultation and scenario planning with local and state health officials. We have jointly decided that hosting the US Open without spectators. Provide the best opportunity to conduct the championship safely for all involved. We'll miss the excitement of the fans and what their presence brings to the championship. We look forward to welcoming them that welcoming them again to future U. S opens. Governor New York. Andrew Cuomo. You, some people a hero to some people. He needs to be impeached Soleil. It always is when you're in politics. That he said quote we have come a long way in the fight against Covid nineteen and I'm so proud of New Yorkers who rose to the occasion and bent the curve. And pleased to welcome the for the US championship at winged foot. Golf Club. This September. While, the tournament will look different this year with no fans in enhanced safety protocols. This event is a welcome sight for sports, fans across the country and will help restore sense of normalcy as we. Build back. Better than before and quote. Met. Normality. Pga Championship is now the. Major of the rescheduled season will be. Laid, August sixty nine at harding park in San Francisco without. Fans in, attendance. And I'm sure that's got A. Rake a lot of hearts especially for bay area golf fans. I know that dominic is a huge Gulf, Fan. I forget what it was, but there was A. Sort of maybe it was for the PGA, but there was a press conference. And I got invited to an and I said. That'd be like that would be it was the PJ. Thanks. But it's not like I'm some magnanimous guy like, why would I go and I'm an extra huge fan? So he went. It would be like. You Know Tottenham, coming in and Ron, insisting on interviewing the Tottenham players I mean would be. Pretty it's. Shame. Although one time, he had David Spade. Let me have him. He's like, no, I got him amit. Jon Boden, Hammer. John Jake Jingle. Hammersmith. That's my name to the people that I meet. And I walked down the street. Sorry. John, Boden Hammer. My name is Johnson I. Live in Wisconsin. I, work in a lumber mill there. He said, this is not a typical US Open in several respects. What had happened easier to simply cancel or even move the twenty twenty championship rather than play been the epicenter of the virus in our country possibly. Sounds, like a golf guy possibly. All of us at the US. Know How much the US Open Matters. And we weren't willing to give up on playing it at winged foot club so easily. Now. Here's the thing I'll say about golf. It has to be by far. The easiest of the sports to play without cove in nineteen transmission. Am I, right. That has to be the easiest one, the only possibility of you. In trouble during play. would be from either the guy that is in your to some or the other two candies. That would be it. Now. Speaking of the PGA Championship, which is I said is going to be coming up here. Excuse me. And just about a week little over week parting one hundred and second PJ championship. It's CBS. Is On. Onboard. and. This is, of course over like Mercedes or. Ordering Park if you want. CBS says it's going to use a lot of new technology. They're going to have drones and fly cams, fly cams of the ones on wires which are not actually flying drones do fly. They're going to be used on both the practice range, and during the competition is say additionally to that forty. Four D. replay will be used like it was. At twenty, eighteen at. Ella Reeve. You offer what they say is they one hundred and eighty degree look around the player to provide thorough breakdown of the players swing. I never thought about that like why would someone care to break down the swing, but then again, baseball, they show the guys swing. They usually show the guy swing when he's doing something. Wrong. Somebody gets a hit. They go I, swing. Balanced. Maybe. Show one replay. Usually, if it's a guys in a slump, they'll do a little side by side video and say, sees opening shoulder you step into early as. He's wiggling the bat, whatever it is. But. With the PGA championship from San Francisco. All of that will be prime time round three on August eighth because that's going to go from four to ten. PM Eastern. And that works pretty good. One, two, seven, Pacific. which would mean, you should have all the big tournaments out here. Right? You can have them, Pat Pebble Beach. You could have them that Lamin can name a million golf courses out here. but. You're going to have The announcers on the course gymnast Nick Faldo in Baker. Finch frank, novello. dottie pepper. trevor and mark. IMMELMAN, we'll be there. And, they'll be doing the the call because you know it was interesting when the giants opened the season down a dodger stadium there announcers my crew. Go John Miller. dwayne, Kuyper, and Dave. Flemming? They were at Oracle Park China Basin. And they were each in a different booth. You had one guy and like the visiting Radio One guy visiting TV home radio. TV and then they could see each other through the window and they could react to each other. At the US, open, they're actually going to be there which like I said, golf can probably pull this off I. Remember my point was about people who didn't want to stand in line. There were stories around baseball. About people who I mentioned always feel that rules are for everybody else. But that there are people writing very emphatic emails to their clubs saying look I, my family has A. Streak intact. And you can't keep me out. And being that the fact that I've been a season ticket holder for fifty years. How about I get my own section and why don't you just pick ten of the best season ticket holders and they make it each have around section. It makes sense. It'll be completely safe and I'm thinking of these guys are just idiot jackasses. The employees of the team aren't even allowed at the park. Front office is not allowed at the park. But in these people mind their minds. They think they're so special that they would break the rules that they're better fans and they deserve more. But there were lots of people like that. Really. Did feel I'm better fan I'm better than him or her I have the street going, and it makes no sense that I can't keep my opening day street going. I'm. Rick. Till on back. Kid. Off.

Playoffs. Playoffs you kidding me. Offs I, hope we can win a game. Rick till eight, two, hundred chicken wings at Yo Mama's house last night now back to fatboy. Kind of hurts my feelings welcome back to the show rectal with you coast to coast and around the world. American. Forces. Radio. Network. All right. Let's take a look at what's going on in the national football because people are opting out man. Or often out now on the one hand padding mahomes. Is a guy who just got a have a billion dollar contract and he's bought the royals. That's good news. But what if Patrick mahomes opted out? Now. I'm not saying that's the rumor because it's not. What if he decided? It's not worth it. Would people say would Clark Hunt Se. Lo, let's gave you all this cash and it'd be like well, I was only going to make six mil this year. And it's really gonNA I got my signing bonus. And it's going really kick in next year. So go ahead and. Pandemic. Man. I got enough money in the bank. I'll be. All right. Over my next meal's coming from, think I got a roof over my head, I'll just forgo that six MIL. And then it will kick in. With the. Royals with the chiefs, take him to court and saying that's you gave your signing bonus back then. Now, they wouldn't have Lamar Jackson twenty three years old. Just. Said You know I was talking to the team doctor and I was talking to my mom whatever, and we just feel this isn't a good idea. You know my girlfriend's pregnant or my grandma house. Was Old, I mean whatever? I think we would be a little more slack jawed if we saw the MVP or the super bowl MVP. Opt Out, but here's the thing. Every player. is going to have to make this decision for themselves and I can't think of any player who doesn't have a relative. WHO'S NOT OVER SIXTY You know even if you're an orphan I'm sure you have people around you that you care about that, our elderly or who have. Diabetes. You know. And who knows what it's going to do view of the asthma. Respiratory Virus. So every player. Has To make. A decision. Based on family and based on business. Whether they want to participate or not in this season. And as I said, it's none of our business. None of. Our. Business. To criticize someone who opts out and to call them a coward or to call them disloyal. Disguise. Risking it. Why can't you? If it was just the guy. then. You could say that, but that's what football is. You're risking yourself. But what the coronavirus you're asking other people to. And that's where it comes into it. The football players already risking life and limb. Especially limb. Is already risking that. But then you gotta think about, can I get my money back and you know you can think of a few cases where guys are playing in all sports because they're in walkers. And a couple of guys I would think and we talked about this before but. They don't play this year. They're not getting an offer next year. Be Two out of sight out of mind. It's none of the. You know as I said, you can get a stipend if you're. And by the way, the stipe in won't be paid until twenty twenty one. The people who do have a legitimate reason. But. What is the landscape via? Cova, like in the town in which? A player resides in a staying home I. Mean, are you? Are You living in La. Are you living in Buber's Montana. You know, and you think how much money do I have in the bank? How much can I earn if I play? what are the chances of my team winning anything this year? Would you put that in it? Will we all stop being paid when they're shuts down? Why? At I subject myself to? this for a quarter or even half of my paycheck. So for anyone who makes living around the line of. Scrimmage. Herb, plays a position in which there's going to be constant contact. and. You're gonNA have constant contact. But I mean really in the trenches just getting out of those piles by the way, those piles are scary. It just are. I just remember from. Showing people how easy it is to long snap and I'm people tried to make it too complicated. You're just passing the ball to your legs, but in those times, I got in those I was watched too small. In. College it in have. Fat I'm sixty, two, hundred pounds and I was way too small to get in that. Scrimmage. And then those piles as well. Offensive Lineman. Their dream was to kill the safety. And so every once in a while, my personal, I would see some pulling guard like bearing down, and then I would just. On the jets and believe in my jets are not jets, but according to compared to an offensive lineman using bowl and I just run away from them. But. You just think about you know I'm playing center and I'm going to have people breathing on me on both sides of the ball every play. We also have to keep in mind that obesity is also. Something that puts you at high risk, which means every offensive linemen and most defensive lineman. You can play. Defensive, line. At. Two, seventy, five. But you cannot play offensive line. If you're under three hundred pounds, it just doesn't happen anymore. You can talk about how the rate of infection is much higher than the African American community, and you think about the percentage of African Americans who play in the NFL and if you're African American. Say Well I. Mean You look in. California. And say. That Of. The the percentage that came through the latest testing that more than fifty percent Hispanic. You know. So you have to look and you'd say, well, I'm Hispanic. Is this affect me or am I living in a house with a bunch of other people who? Wear masks. Said history of. As an all that stuff's going to come in. And that's why the opt-outs work collectively bargained for. No one is gaming the system. There's nothing to gain financially from staying away. I think gained outside of just your health which you can't buy. So the the contracts toll. So knowing gets closer to free agency. Yeah. The player gets year older. In a sport where youth is everything. So. One agent told CBS sports. I've only had one guy opt out and I don't think more on my clients are but I totally understand it and have talked to my guys about it. It's a personal decision and we all need respect. Every situation is individual at the end of the day. The big question is, how many games are we really going to end up playing anyway. and. That's important thing to just talk to guys and educate them. Because I'm not a scientist and neither are the players either other coaches. It's good to get them in I happen to. Be, in the car yesterday and I can't listen to the as because they're not on the radio. So the as don't exist to me anymore when I'm in my car which sucks. And I'm way way too lazy to turn on some sort of APP and use data and Bluetooth and I. I don't Even Have Bluetooth from my dashboard. I'm sorry. I have not heard. Ken. KORAC. Wants this year outside of a highlight which sucks. I do three hours about how lame it is that my team is on the radio and then brags about it, which makes it even worse. I heard on, NPR. Yesterday Steve Kerr was being interviewed. And it was is being guy who? Hind Sports Kinda, didn't. But. It's funny. Steve Kerr were the same age both class eighty three. So is Mark Jackson Valley and high school. That I. Just He's always got something smart to say, but he he said something I didn't I never heard. About the warriors because. The guy asked him about regrets during the season. If he had me and he said, he regretted how he responded to the Darryl Morrison. You. Know he thought that. He should kind of toe the line and he said what I should have done was. I'm back Daryl Morey saying he's an American and he can say whatever he wants. He goes I wish I had said that. This is what I didn't know. He said. He called a professor on Chinese history at Stanford. And, he had him come to practice and he got everybody together and he said the guy talked for forty five minutes on the history of China and Hong Kong and the British Empire. And what Hong Kong meant means transition of power from the United. Kingdom to Red China. and. He said, he just wanted his players to understand what the situation was. And I thought. I. Love. Actually, I have a rudimentary understanding of all that I'd love to hear this Professor Talk forty-five minutes about. In depth history of that. But you know you talk about Hong Kong, such a cosmopolitan city with. Hundreds of skyscrapers and so much technology, so much industry, and then all of a sudden this. In some regards this. A communist country gets this new land. Now, of course, you look at Shanghai and that's another Silicon Valley. It's not like they were. Accords. I just thought well Steve, Kerr really. He's really something special. He really is. To do that for his players just so they would have an informed opinion. I remember Steve. Kerr's grandparents. Grandparents during the Armenian genocide when the Ottoman Empire, the Turks were killing. The during World War once they're getting away with it, just trying to wipe off the Armenians off the face of the earth. His grandparents moved to Beirut and start an orphanage for medium babies. So his father was born there. He became professor in American universities, Steve. Kerr was born there in Beirut. Has A. Different opinion what's funny and I know I've transitioned Steve Kerr thing. But the guy asking questions said, you know you're a normal sized guy, no offense or pretty tall, but were you ever afraid you were going to get hurt playing against the Pistons and the Bulls in the Eighties Steve, Kerr said now. Is, he supposed to a? He goes. There's no doubt I was overmatched. But I had a pretty tough body. I was pretty resilient I never really missed any time being hurt. At now, you can't play scared. and. Obviously. You can't. Only get into this. A. Little bit more. We go to another our and stuff. But this the NFL season was never going to be anything close to normal as we know. Alert Nineteen. Is wrecked havoc on society and not to mention rosters and games in practice time and drafts, many camps, rookie minicamps, all that stuff. But. So far.

The entire hour at one, eight, hundred, eight, seven, eight, p. l. a. y. that some five to nine. Joey boasts. One hundred. Thirty five million dollar. Contract extension for five years. Is. The record for defensive players. A one, hundred in two, million guaranteed I means if he falls down. and. Hurts his kneecaps. He gets the money. He's only twenty five years old. He held out because the chargers were stupid and Dean spanos talked about when we trade you how much money you're going to get. It was so dumb. The chargers held firm. And BOSA ended up getting his cash in the end. Anyway. But Guy Averages just under Saka game. Is I said he's still only twenty five and he'll be in L. A. now for the next six years and. It'll be alongside Melvin for a lot of that. This is a lot of people like to pick the chargers to go to the playoffs. You know another starting all over with their quarterback, Justin Herbert and. tyrod. Taylor. We'll see what happens there but new stadium new deal for Bosa now. One of the things that I think that the Cleveland, browns actually did right. Is that they signed Myles, Garrett I. And they knew myles Garrett was going to have to get paid. If you don't WanNa, go second look what happened with Aaron, Donald? Than Khalil Mack with the bears had to pay. To get his extension in. Always, going to be more. and. You know it was kind of the open secret. Once again, we're going to have WHO's going to get paid. I was GONNA be arid or was it going to be both and you want to go second? You really did. But the Brown's got Garrett at a fixed costs of twenty, five, million per year, the guarantee of fifty million. Mentioned Bosa hundred and two million in guarantees. That's quite a mission accomplished for Cleveland and Garrett has very similar per sack game tolls as Bosa. Both have defensive MVP. Potential. Bosa has had some injuries. Now, possible sixty four games. He's. Missed thirteen in four years. In fifty one games, he's had forty sacks. Air It has been very durable. Lay just three years, thirty, seven games thirty and a half sacks and hitting. A quarterback in the head with his own, Helmet Mason Rudolph. The browns could have waited. and. Then see Garrett for. Taxis and then really paying but. I mean there. There's every. Reason to anticipate that, both of these players will live up to these days. The browns are doing it for tens of millions of dollars less. Or player who's younger had fewer injuries less tread on the tires. So. and. You might say, wait a minute. Fifty, million guaranteed was a deal. Yeah. It was. The other thing you gotta worry about now and you'd say, all I wouldn't worry about it. I would. Is that Garrett, it'd be like, well, Lo, how much guaranteed do I. Get fifty million and then how much does the guy on the chargers get? One, hundred, two, million. This isn't like he got fifty and the other guy got fifty three. That's like I'll whatever re million dollars make that every time I blink. One, hundred to two fifty. We'll see what happens. Also we had some run bumbling stumbling is about Roger 's? You know and look, we know what happened with Jordan love, and we know that he signed the biggest contract ever for somebody who's taken twenty, six overall and that Aaron Rodgers said. Yeah. Maybe I won't be here. And it was a dumb pig because Jordan love is not Andrew. Luck. Questions, about. Them. But it's just the Patrick. mahomes thing. He's an expert in my home. The packers got decimated by the niners, but they still made it to the final four out to the NFC championship game. Aaron, Rodgers has many years left on his deal. You're maybe a player to away from winning the whole Shebang and you get your quarterback of the future who's not a lock who is, but it's really stupid. Aaron Rodgers is you know he's got a sponge. He's a deep thinker. He evaluates everything going around him. and. When he sees. Team. Trade. Up. Get a player that a lot of people didn't even have a first raid ground on. A moratorium to Rogers, ability into the end of his career with the t the you're on the clock. Now it's taking. Of two years left. So. Latest comments he had. It was an interview for the podcast on the ringer. And it was invaded in pretty certain terms. Rogers made the case coolly and calmly. In the almost like a litigator. About. All of the many receivers, packers could have drafted in that spot. Given their need and given that this was supposed to be the best wide receiver draft in the last ten years. I mean. He, he detailed his shock. Or, fingers, of Tequila deep. At, the selection of love and then the awkward position that put him in. Through in the fact that it was his marketing agent. Not, the packers. told him that they were going to draft him. Well. That's one where I'm like the packers don't have to tell you what they're going to do. It would be nice for you know apiece. They don't have to. So. Rogers detail that lane that you know. This was nothing like when he was selected. With Brett. Farve on the roster. Because Rogers was either going to be the first or second quarterback taken in the draft. And Alex. Smith with number one overall rogers dropped passer raiders hated. This wasn't the same thing when Green Bay leaps up to take a player that did not have that profile whatsoever. And it's kind of a rebuttal and checkmate at that to the. Rumbling bumbling ramblings of matlock fleur, few months back. About the packers they. Found themselves in that scenario. Well, he's here and that it made every sense in world and it would have been ridiculous not to take him. Once. Again, you traded up. You trade it up. and then for good measure Rogers, made it clear that he thought. That this, Fort. Dean in two team, the Super Bowl worthy, and just missing a few pieces whereas attendance six packer team, it was drafted onto. A little bit Gazi. So the problem was. Is that a lot of people thought the packers were not as good as their record and they kind of showed it in the playoffs but. The niners really should have won the super bowl, so they can't sneeze it that. Love Trade is going to define this regime. and. If you think Rogers was playing close attention during the draft, you haven't seen anything yet because he is going to be watching love like a hawk seeing how he sizes up mentally and physically going to ignore them like five did him. He said he wouldn't. Does the guy that they drafted to replace him. Does he have the goods or is he just a guy? What did they see in him on an? Are they crazy? So, there's no off season. There's no regular time with teammates and pass catchers. Love is at a distinct disadvantage in his development already. and so how Rogers is going to approach him will and see. But it was for a guy that I was kinda secretly hoping. We'd get to the raiders in the second round even though they didn't need them just because you know pattern mahomes. Excellent. One of the last teams who have ever drafted him only drafted him, but they traded up to. I'm Rick Tuttle. We'll take a quick break come on back sports by. took. Family.

Jane Lynch, she's an actress. Per Adam. Schefter. will be for the next five years. We'll have him in command, the twenty, twenty, four season. And, this is about a month. Remove the niners giving Kyle Shanahan, a new six-year contract that goes through twenty twenty five. The two key members of their? Mastheads secured for a long term. and. If, you can think about how close John Lynch was getting fired last year. I wouldn't say it was an imminent because it wasn't. Someone was going to have to take the blame if they had yet another sucky season, especially with a healthy Jimmy G. The whole year. They got long contracts. Those two together. Shanahan came in. I. You helped pig John. But finding a good coach like Shanahan is much much harder than finding a guy who's never been GM before. I qualify for that. So. Do you don't qualify as brilliant offensive minds? So I had the forty niners suck. Last year. You would have said, oh. My Gosh. Reuben Foster Nice pick thalmann Thomas is pick I. Mean you would have gone down the line everything. You got wrong. Right. But? They. Said when Taveras more that pick six? HOURS WE'RE GONNA win the super. Bowl. So. there's a lot more stability there. To say the least. One, eight, hundred, eight, seventy play. Speaking Lamar, Jackson of the Ravens, the MVP. Lamar Jackson is apparently, not afraid to shake some things up because. Is Ready to begin training camp with goal of finishing what they couldn't do, and what was of course in an otherwise. Allies historic season last year, and he's now over to in the playoffs, but he feels that there's one particular free agent. I can really help. And that is Antonio Brown. And you know he has waffled between being done with the League being suspended by the League, erode a little tweet. A couple of weeks ago, saying to get I've done everything. Asked, I. Even went to the psychologist open. We would get him. I'm still hoping. A little bit. A little bit. We know that his. As their nephew. Cousin. I. Sang a little bit those last week? We example is. What she's trying to get off. He was place there in September almost a year now. and. It wasn't his onfield or off field. Incident actual assault. Was a highly public, a video that he posted him sw. Wearing as other of his children cops on his property. And the litigation that's pending from that. So the NFL launched a probe. Study. The San. Jose thing now or not. We'll pretend to do it. Forget it. But it's open until goodell closes it, right? Brow will not be able to go back to the field. Even. He signed right now. The. Quote on his instagram was this was from Antonio Brown to Roger Goodell. I have complied with each and every ask. Your investigations. About, the past eleven at the media has distorted. I have been seeing. The therapist you asked me to have worked on all aspects of my life this past year and become have become a better man. And because of it. The fact that you few. Completely unacceptable. I demand provide me clarity on the situation immediately if you really care about my wellbeing. I legal team continues to ask and you provide no answers. How is that? League can just drag its feet. On any investigation being on you NFL, let's get this thing done. We've got history to make. And Quo. So the GM the Browns browns Ravens. Used to be. The browns. Erica cost. He said we're always assessing the players. Out there on the streets were looking at guys or making decisions. We think are best for the club's. If, we think you guys who fits us. He's. Got The skill set to provide value or certainly pounce on that Kinda Guy. As Ozzie newsome. Always. Used to tell me. And he concluded I look at this time period. Good, right here out to the draft is a great opportunity to get better as a football team and will look to do that. The whole thing about Antonio Brown being a better man, he is a loose cannon as you can have. On psychopathic narcissist. There's no way that the guy is all the sudden. Auto. Citizen. He's just too crazy. Literally is and then he like little film. Being crazy. Against when they play the rival steelers. What happened with him and? What happened him in New England? One start. Rothesay run down and our run a pattern of post run A. Lag. And you to go out great hands really fast. Asked. Yeah. We know he is. We know he has great ends and he's really fast. But we also know that. He will all you're going to cut me, but then the owner goes into massage parlor. Then he goes I'm sorry, Mr. Craft I've changed. Jackson was asked by sight. Common. He said look around us. He's a great guy. He's cool. They go twenty, four, seven prior to the workout we lift. Did. Go out there throwing routes. After that, he lifted some more. Like there's no quit in this guy. If he doesn't act like a MEGLOMANIAC. So. On the one hand, you can't say whether you like Brown or not that it is cold to keep them in. Then Belak said, which is correct and since September he's been on an example of. and. You would think it shouldn't take more than a month or two to interview all parties involved in accusations. Especially, you say we'll wait till after the super bowl. Okay. We'll the civil ended in. February. And there's been a pandemic. It's not like you guys have been on vacation or busy somewhere else.

Coast to coast round the world on American. Forces Network. So, we are talking NFL and what about college football and these? Incredibly. Strange Times. We talk about. You know the the schools that have opted out the conferences that opted out the conferences that said that the only play conference schedule. Which means a lot of games have already been canceled. Product will be watered down, but what about the idea of moving into next year? Now, helping high schools are supposedly moving until January. So. I'm a winter sport. What about Spring Ball?
