"So that could be a feisty series, but I just think physically they don't have anything close to the beef to stop that team. No, I mean, Denver is six and O against Miami. I started my research this morning, six and O against Miami in their last three seasons. Yoko has dominated every single, you know, matchup. If you can look at the second spectrum matchup date, it doesn't matter what Miami's done against him. He dominates. I think it'd be really tough for Miami. Like Bam is an awesome defender. He can, so Denver's ready for Miami to close this. I think so. Yeah, I would think so rather than, so they're, they're going to pay Jeter and a rod not to go to game five and game six and game seven. That really was a bad omen for Miami bill. If I was a heat fan, I would have been so bad. You know, you grew up, how old were you when the old four Red Sox happened? I was 14. The rest of my life and the rest of your life, anytime somebody's down, oh, three and comes back, we get to see the Kevin Millar thing. Like today sent, somebody sent me a pic of it's Shaughnessy talking to Kevin Millar, but instead of Millar, it was Jalen Brown with the face mask on. And it's just like, I'm just so happy. This gets to versus like where we were before you turned 14, where the Red Sox were just angst, torture, Bill Buckner, Aaron Boone, Babe Ruth, you name it. It was all bad. And now it's not. So I was, I was just so happy that they were there. Thanks for that. I'm so happy that I'm in a good mood today that this is in a eulogy podcast. Before we go, last question. Um, if they got swept, do you think they would have traded Jalen Brown? Yes or no? Yes. I think yes, too. I wouldn't rule it out either. I, and I've talked to a bunch of people the last two days and I've looked at the numbers and stuff, and especially like with the way I, I'm still trying to fully comprehend the CBA and that apron and the second apron and all the, all the different, but man does it really kind of seems impossible to have two guys who make 50 million plus a year. Yeah, you can do it, but it just seems like really, really, really, really damaging. Super limiting starting next summer. So like this, this would be the year that you kind of can, can do it. And it's not as painful, but starting next year with not being able to trade your pick seven years out, not being able to take more money in a deal, not being able to aggregate salaries in a train. Like, my goodness, it is like really restrictive and that, like even aside from the second major apron restrictions, five years, 295 million for, I don't know, 20th best player, 25th best player. However you want to rank Jaylen Brown, that's a lot of money. It's a lot of money. And you could say like, well, he's second team all NBA forward. It's like, but no Kawhi, no KD, no LeBron, no Davis, you know, it was, it was a little bit of a fluke year for forwards. I don't think anybody thinks he's one of the four best forwards in the league, but he's a, a winning player who's been in a lot of awesome games and he's really good. He's one of the top 25 guys in the league. Totally. He's a really good player. He really is really good. He can still get better too. He's still young. I mean, I think we talked about, he's probably near his peak, but pretty direct, it's been really durable. I don't, I mean, I'd rather check there. I'd rather Damian Lillard, despite his advanced stage, he just came off a career best season, he solves your leadership issues, Damian Lillard, the playmaking Yeah. I'd go for Dam. That'd be my number one target of the realistic guys. Oh man. I was thinking if, and I think they ended up keeping him, but if, if, if they can somehow survive in this series for a few, for a few more games that they lose game five, I don't know, but if they do trade them to me, it's like more of a, get a young asset, get some flexibility, break him into multiple pieces, take a minor step back then in that, in that sense, you're saying. Yeah. But maybe you take, you get assets back that you can then flip and something else. That's why I like that Portland trade with the number three and you get Simon's and then you get some other stuff and then you can kind of figure out what to do with, you know, you have to figure it out, bring in Scoot Henderson, maybe that'd be an interesting path too. I don't know if Boston would go that route if it comes to it, but that, that is a path that has a lot of appeal to me too. Cause Tatum's still young. He's still young. There's also the Beale, Beale and number eight and something else. That's, that's a possibility. Like there's, he's going to be, if they decide shit, we got to do this. We got to trade them. Um, he's by far the best wing in the market, right? Cause the nets aren't trading bridges. It doesn't seem like, so, um, and everybody's looking for a guy like him. So still, I you know, I battle back and forth on it, but I, I just don't know where you're going if you're paying $110 million to two wings in a season, the way the rules are, it's, it's, it's just seems daunting anyway. All right. KFC, uh, we can see you on Fandl TV. When's the next one? Uh, Thursday, uh, beyond the arc will be airing at 9 a .m. Eastern, 6 a .m. Pacific and mismatch on Friday. There you go.

"Weber back with you in for Ridge Island. I am winding down. That means Rich and the gang are warming up. They're back with you tomorrow. To quote the great Barry Manilow, yes, I am a fanilow. Looks like we made it. They're going to deal with me for 15 more minutes. The gang back tomorrow. They'll have all of the highlights of their trip to New York City. Great honor to have the program recognized with a second consecutive sports Emmy nomination and be sure to check out the great work on the simulcast streaming for free on the Roku channel. Going to call an audible and I can understand why Joe Varden of the athletic cannot join us right now because of all of the LeBron James conversation that hopefully I've laid out in a entertaining, insightful and non -repetitive way. I consume a lot of sports media and I'm going to get back to LeBron in a second. We're also going to spend more time talking about the Heat and the Celtics and acknowledging Denver because that should be the priority. But I got into this business a long time ago and since I was damn lucky and somebody put me on TV when I was 21 years old, saved me from going to law school. I think about why I wanted to do this and it was a different landscape then and had I been growing up now, I probably would have done a few podcasts. I would have tried an Instagram show where you put it together and I would have said, all right, is this what it's going to be because you're not good at the beginning. It's the old 10 ,000 hour rule. But the other reason I've hung with this other than thinking about it was my passion when I started and still is for better or for worse, I love the medium and I especially love radio and if you are somebody who's lucky also to work on the television side or just call it video now, if you can talk and you have opinions and I think both apply to me without being too self -congratulatory, radio's the best because it's me and you. Hopefully it's clear I'm not reading. Would have taken me a long time to write this. I can't afford writers and I do meander a bit but I love the notion of, okay, LeBron is going to be the through line across our three hours together. How can I come up with different ways of making it interesting? Hopefully I achieve that goal. If not, good news is you don't have to deal with me. I'll just whisper, I'm back on Memorial Day. I know a lot of you take the holiday as you should and then Rich will do a magnificent job as he normally does for the rest of next week. Since I threw out the Aaron Rodgers update, don't want people to be concerned because it's only an organized team activity but we started the program with the observation because the media has gathered. There's a throng looking for Rodgers. They didn't see him take part in drills at the beginning of OTAs. Come to find out and I want to give attribution because Josina Anderson is a terrific journalist now at CBS. She's reporting, as I mentioned, Rodgers is dealing with a strained calf. Injury is considered minor. Now in terms of what that meant today, is Zach Wilson still, quote unquote, relevant. Zach Wilson's still on the team because he's still on that rookie deal. The Coug Hunter has a new life. My favorite part of the debacle, and I know I better tread lightly here, Rich is a jet fan but I think he cut me some slack because I grew up going to jet games when they played in the pit that was Shea Stadium. Shea Stadium on a cold November day with the trash blowing around. It was only worse when the Mets had the infield and when they played there in September. So I think I have some jet equity. Here's the jet question. Prior to the arrival of Aaron Rodgers, give me the second best quarterback in the history of the franchise, clearly Joe Willie Namath, number one. Jets have been living on him running off the field at the Orange Bowl and Super Bowl III waving that number one finger in the air for decades. I was born in 1969. Who's the second best quarterback in Jets history? Now it's Aaron Rodgers. Prior to his arrival, the answer I believe is Chad Pennington. If you want to talk about achievement, you could say Sanchez went to back -to -back AFC title games, but that was based on his surrounding cast, especially the defense. You Richard Todd guy. So at least the Jets now have hope and that division is fascinating. I don't know what happened to the Bills in that playoff game at home against Cincinnati. No explanation, a lot like Boston being flat at home against Miami. No explanation to have that lack of energy other than Cincinnati's very good. Or perhaps if you want to take a step back and be more humane, the cumulative toll of everything that franchise went to with Damar Hamlin, it's amazing he's back at the facility, but to watch a person momentarily die on the field and be brought to life again, that's got to be traumatic. I'm not saying cause and effect, but want to see where Buffalo is moving forward. Miami's gone all in. People forget they went out and got Bradley Chubb at the Deadline. I realize he was banged up, but here's a guy who was a top 10 pick coming out of NC State when he went to Denver. Before that, they got Tyreek Hill. The question is, can two of us stay healthy? Now you got the Jets and Rogers changes everything on a team that almost made the playoffs despite the horrendous play of Zach Wilson, his immaturity and his lack of accountability. And then you got Belichick just hanging on. And I think this is sad. And you could tell me I'm a hater. This is now the Belichick stats compiler era. All he's looking to do is pick up enough wins to move past Don Shula, but the franchise isn't getting better. In fact, they regressed, at least he acknowledged, his lack remarkable of judgment in thinking that the gruesome twosome of Matt Patricia and Joe Judge somehow were qualified to coach up poor Mac Jones, who regressed in a major way. Yes, Belichick has the six rings. I'm not being a hot take guy. You know what he's been since Brady departed? 500 and a playoff loss. And they're clearly the worst team in that division. And Vegas has them at seven and a half wins. Well, they went eight and nine last year. So a lot to think about in that division. Final thoughts on the NBA. Let's give Miami and Boston more attention. When that series ends, I think it's tonight, but Boston is lighting up social media. All my friends in New England are writing this quote from Jalen Brown as he channeled his inner Kevin Millar. Don't let us win tonight. Yeah, I know the Red Sox did it against the Yankees. It ain't happening in the NBA. It's too hard. The NBA has proven, and this is a giant sample size, and the Lakers continue that trend. Although LeBron did everything he could, barring the last 30 seconds. Teams down, 0 -3 are now 0 and 150 all time, trying to close out a series and come all the way back. So it ain't happening. For Miami, I was talking about how unlikely in many ways this run to the finals will be, and I mentioned that piston team that stunned the Lakers 20 years ago with Jack, Kobe, Malone, and Gary Payton, and I said there wasn't a transcendent star on that team. I mentioned Rip Hamilton. I did a little more research. Ben Wallace did sneak into the Hall of Fame a couple years ago, and remember, it's the basketball Hall of Fame, the most expansive of all the Halls of Fame. So credit Ben, they had one Hall of Famer, but you get the point I'm making here. Miami has Jimmy Butler, who somehow transforms himself every time we get to the postseason. It's magical to watch. He becomes LeBron and Jordan come playoff time. Regular season, Jimmy's a whole different entity, but he's doing it with an actual team, and a phenomenal coach. When you think about how Spolstra has progressed, coming out of the tape room back in the day, and if we're talking about teams, who's got a

More thoughts on LeBron. If you want to know the big word I was going to throw your way, he was Machiavellian. Oh, look it up. LeBron is smart. He's a great businessman. What's the line from Jay -Z as I try to sound less suburban? I'm not a businessman. I'm a businessman. He's his own industry. And I think last night's brushing up against retirement. Saying he had to contemplate his future was calculated. And was a wonderful diversion from what was a semi embarrassing. And yes, I'm hammering a guy who almost had a triple double. Who was out of his mind in terms of productivity for the majority of the game after he had 31 in the first half. He looked old, understandably. He looked gas, especially on the last two possessions. I think he wanted to shift our attention from that. And I think he was speaking directly to Jeannie Buss and Laker GM Rob Polenka. Get me Kyrie. I'll tell you why that would be the wrong decision. Undeniably coming up in 30 minutes. Plus, got to talk more about the Heat trying to join the Nuggets in the NBA Finals. Jalen Brown is going Kevin Millar cowboy up. Quote, don't let us win tonight. I know what he's doing, especially in Boston. We're looking for the comp. Hey, the Red Sox did it. You can come back from 3 -0 down. It's never happened in the history of the NBA for a reason. I'll tell you why coming up in 30 minutes. This show typically is a simulcast. And a wonderful one at that since I also work in television for the time being. As the clock is ticking, good thing I can do radio and audio excellence as well. So check out Rich and the Gang with a return from New York City tomorrow on the Roku Channel. Of course, listen to our audio experience as well. Take us wherever you go. I am not anti -streaming. If you care at all about my background, I currently have about three and a half jobs to involve streaming. I appeared on ESPN Plus a couple months ago. I was surprised at the pay scale. I'll take you down that road on my podcast, Dollars and Cents with B -Web. Streaming ain't broadcast, kids. But it's another way to bring you, the sports fan, even more coverage. And a lot of it, I think, is a nice advance because it's on demand. So I did a gymnastics meet. Yeah, postseason. A lot on the line at UCLA on ESPN Plus. And I went home and watched it and fell in love with myself one more time. So I am not anti -technology. I am not somebody who lives at home with a candle. I actually pay my power bill when I can afford it. And I want to do this as long as I can. So the future is streaming when we're talking about video. But you know there's a nevertheless coming. And I am not poking the NFL. Bear, I am aware that I am filling in for Rich Eisen. I am here because Rich believes in me. And if you don't know, this is Rich's show. I admire his entrepreneurial spirit. I admire that he bet on himself. You know how hard it is to find a way forward in a crowded media landscape with your own show, both on the streaming component now and nationally syndicated radio? Rich, brilliant guy, and we worked together briefly at NFL Network. That changed my career. So I'm not anti -NFL. But I have to call it like I see it. And to channel Cosell, how do I know? I was there. Tell it like it is. You might think this is a small deal. Unless you actually go to NFL games, I don't. So this does not impact me in any way. I am way too cheap to spend my own money. Plus, I don't like going to stadiums anymore. Now, that sounds jaded. It's not about, you know, I've been doing this for 30 years. Obviously, I love the games. I don't like big crowds. I'm just going to be straight up with you. That's why I live alone and I work alone. Some things happen for a reason. But if you are an NFL fan who goes to games, you love the experience, you plan your work and personal life schedule around it, the NFL just kicked you in the groin again. Because yesterday, Roger Goodell got what he was looking for with the option of now flexing Thursday Night Football. It barely passed the ownership vote. He needed 24 votes. He got them. And I want to take a moment to acknowledge the Giants, the Jets, the Packers, the Bears, the Raiders, Lions, Bengals, and Steelers for saying, no, this is wrong. Why is it wrong? Why should we not be open to having a couple flexes to make it better for those watching on Amazon Prime? And the details are important. Limited to weeks 13 through 17. They gave it a little bit more cushion. Flexes must be done with four weeks notice. 28 days, four weeks, we can do the math. And teams cannot play two road games on Thursday night in the season. Okay, so at least it's mitigated, it's controlled. But why is this happening at all? The answer is Amazon is writing a gigantic check to the NFL. So big they bought themselves a Black Friday game. Did anybody need NFL football on the day after Thanksgiving? And your answer is going to be, hey, Phil and Hack, I'll take football every day of the week. I get it. But as someone who got into this business largely because of college football, I prefer a time in which the day after Thanksgiving was dominated by college football. And I realized Oklahoma and Nebraska haven't played for a long time. Johnny Rogers and the Game of the Century, I didn't see it. I think I was five when that was played. But I don't need the NFL after having three NFL games the day before. Why is this going to exist? Because Amazon is paying gigantic dollars because they have virtually unlimited resources. Oh, by the way, some large layoffs as well, because they have to protect the stock price. But Amazon can do whatever they want. They have cash flow that's comparable to the gross domestic product of Guatemala. So the NFL wants to appease them. And let's also be candid. The Thursday night games have been straight garbage for many obvious reasons. Thursday night football shouldn't exist. The NFL claims to care about player safety. In fact, getting some cover today, and it was shrewd because the NFL, like LeBron, knows what they are doing. The league has agreed to a new, quote, unquote, player safety rule on kickoffs. It's the college rule. You can call for a fair catch anywhere between the goal line and the 25. You advance out to the 25, which I support. Some of you is going to say, well, no, I love the excitement of the collision of kickoffs. The league has to pretend like they're going to do everything they can to keep the folks who are responsible for generating the revenue healthy. If they actually cared, Thursday night football would never have been created and it would be abolished today. But that's never going to happen because of the money. And why is

"Again, I found that because presented the NFL network kanban coverage. Correct. And I just found it funny that one of the, and now they're sponsoring our combine of the draft coverage. Combine in the draft without a doubt. The most lying liar events in all of the NFL, it's called noble. When there's bull everywhere. It's just different degrees of bull, you have to figure out you're going to wade yourself through the bull. I wish it was noble. Although, I want the Panthers to keep me guessing. Please. And right now, guys, we are 16 days away. And we still don't know. We have no idea. Not a clue. Zero. It wasn't enough. Do not want to know. You don't want to know, right? So many people do. I don't want to know. Right? Keep it under wraps. What was the year, remember back in the day they used to. Oh, we signed the guy on Tuesday. It was like the draft. It's because that was the first because it was the first overall pick and you had to sign them. You understand, like, you had to sign them. They could hold on it. They could hold out on you. Well, that was before the wage scale. Yeah. And they could hold out on you. And they're negotiating the richest contract in the history of the sport, if not your franchise. And they hadn't played a single down yet. And some teams were like, if you don't sign, we're not going to make you first overall. the way this used to go. So signing the guy getting it wrapped up was important because if you didn't, suddenly you make them the first overall pick and they're like, well, I'm not showing up. Remember that? Those days Eli. I'm not dunk. Going to Tampa Bay. I'm going to play baseball. Eli told him, don't draft me. The photograph of Eli on draft night. The photograph of Eli. Holding up the Chargers. Where he looked patently miserable. Awful. He looked down. And what should be the greatest day of his life? You know? Miserable. Because they told the Chargers don't do it. And the charges did it. And we spent, I remember that, great. The old four draft. He doesn't look too bad. 'cause he's a nice guy. Nice kid. And maybe deep down, he knew that Philip Rivers, if he doesn't get picked before the Giants, this trade was going to be struck. But they ran a risk. They ran arrest. They ran a risk and I just remember we were on the air on NFL network. This was the first draft. We covered the old four and O 5 drafts from Los Angeles. That's right. The O four draft we just, I think we just did the first round. Just to see if mayock was right that Aaron Rodgers would last all the way to the 24th overall pick and he did. And I remember we were just talking about it like they told him not for a good hour, he was a charger and then all of a sudden the trade hit and could you imagine if somebody swept in took Philip Rivers instead what the hell would happen? I would have been a charger. And that's like an NBA draft type moment. Normally, just make the trade, you choose them. But instead the Chargers took, when was the last time, I don't think anything like that's happened since. Didn't Michael Vick and went and Tomlinson, something very similar, right? Did the chargers take Vic? This is back in the day. Yeah. Could you imagine somebody does that now? Bryce young gets drafted by the Texans. Right. And then all of a sudden, they announce a trade. Somebody chooses, will levitt later on and then they announce a trade, like it's the NBA draft. That just doesn't happen in the NFL. Ray Romano in studio hour three coming up on this show.

"And telling and Mike fables like, yep, this year we're just going to see how we rebuild and it's Anthony Richardson's run once Tannehill's done. Number two on this list. They love Anthony Richardson. This is what I am hearing and who doesn't. The Las Vegas Raiders are absolutely one of the 16s. I think I have named every team that's called, but the Raiders, I mean, Jimmy G's there, he's got two years. I know he's got free chicken. I knew he's got all that stuff. I know he's got all that stuff in Las Vegas. Sorry, you could turn your mic on the laughter. It's okay. But you've got to be the one to call you. It's not too far to go from 7 to three. Not too far to go from 7 to three. And you got mahomes, and you got Ross, and you got Herbert, you need your own. Anthony Richardson can be your own. And then number one on this list. Absolutely. They can not leave this draft without a quarterback in the first round. I believe. They have to take one. Certainly because of the way they've tried to fill in the blank once Andrew Luck left them with a blank when they least expected it. Because the era of cocoon did not work for the Indianapolis Colts who are number one on this list. Yep, they've gone foals. They've gone rivers. They've gone Matt Ryan. And I appreciate Sean Mitchell choosing this particular photograph of Wilford Brimley. Wow, he looks so miserable. Which one, Matt Ryan? Oh, okay. This era of cocoon must end. And they don't have anybody. They got to get one. And if it's Anthony Richardson, they want, move up one spot. Gotta be that team. And if I'm a Cardinals, I am making sure that one spot is expensive. Because they'd be turning down a whole bunch of other opportunities to move all the way down. However, the colts responses like you still get whoever you want, 'cause you know, we're not trading up for will Anderson. You still get well Anderson. You can't, if you trade with the Raiders, you can't, if you trade with everybody else on this list. Number one on this list of the cults. Do you think we

Adam Schefter said 16s have called the Arizona Cardinals for the third overall selection. At least 6 have inquired. Fascinating number, by the way, fascinating number 6 and this is per league sources. So I've got a top 5 list of the teams that should be ringing up the Arizona Cardinals for the third overall pick. Number 5 is the team that said they're cool with their guy they drafted last year to the point where they're not signing Lamar Jackson to an offer sheet and they just traded a 5th round pick. For Jeff a cooter, the cornerback and they went on a free agency spending spree and they went ahead and got themselves Calais Campbell. As well. They kind of want to win now and you get kale as Campbell. I get it, and they said they love Desmond Ritter. But I think the falcons should definitely check on how much it costs to go from 8 to three and check on Anthony Richardson instead. And I know that that would essentially turn Desmond Ritter into Josh Rosen. But I think they have to do that. And that's, by the way, if I'm not mistaken, Anthony Richardson is on Atlanta's visit list. So they're thinking the same thing I'm thinking, which is just check it out. Just make the call. Just see what it would cost. Let's check on Richardson just to see if it's worth it. Rain.

And I can definitely understand, oh, Gerald burrow, yeah, sure, he's a Buckeye. Speaking of Buckeye. Yes, sir. You're in Detroit, man. We are so happy. Jennifer cuda can get a fresh break. Because if you remember, he was kind of left over from that those geniuses bob Quinn and Matt Patricia, had they not alienated, Darius slay who only went on to be a Pro Bowl cornerback, and we had to use that kick on a cornerback or for our defense for just Okuda and he just never formed into the player. He was supposed to be. So him getting up out of Detroit, good riddance. I'm actually happy for him because hopefully he could stop being a bum now and do something with his career, because he did nothing here. Well, an excellent case study of what the lines did wrong, but now they can send Jeff akuta away for a 5th round pick and feel like they're just team building. Most definitely. I have faith in our coach too. I believe the guy has the eye. He has the city on fire. I tell you that much. We are drinking that blue Kool-Aid by the gallons, baby. Next season, we can not wait. 6th overall selection for the Detroit Lions. Thanks for the call, Jeff. I appreciate it. 6th overall selection. What are they going to do? They're going to get a really good player. And this is the Matthew Stafford trick. How about that Seattle, trades away? Russell Wilson, Detroit trades away Matthew Stafford. Did they ever think in a million years? Trading away Stafford would net them a 6th overall pick two years later. After the rams win the Super Bowl with Stafford, the rams win the Super Bowl with Stafford, and they must have, they were like, what in the world will our draft choice look like in 2023? Oh, 6th overall. Oh, really? Oh, really? Got it. So, what will they do? And a question is, is, if levis drops to 6? And the Raiders are sitting there at 7? Who's ringing up their phone? Lines will be like, oh, yeah. Area code three one three. That's it. Open for more unless I don't know if Alan park's different.

"Your defensive player of the year, your reigning defensive player of the year? Check that box. Yeah, that brothers. They went to Ohio State to go part of the Ohio State together. And then there's Sam Hubbard who, as we all know, came up with the fumble in the jungle this past year. I mean, what an incredible moment for the Bengals and a playoff moment. When you get a nickname in the playoffs, iconic, made in the shade. He went to the Ohio State, and they all made their bones at Ohio State. They all went there, they stayed there, they were drafted from there. One guy is not like the other. He's not. And I'll just say this. He's not. He's not. And burrow, I know burrow. Talks of his time at the Ohio State affectionately. I know he considers him considers himself part of the Buckeye community, and I know he thanked Ryan day. He's from Ohio. And he's from Athens, Ohio, and he places professional football in Ohio and he is his Buckeye state as through and through as he possibly can, but when it all comes down to it, when it all comes down to it, he had to leave the Buckeye state. To get his opportunity that he made the most of. And Buckeye fanciest ignore that fact. Just go right over that like a speed bump. He didn't leave. We'd never know who he was. Correct. Where would he be? Where would he be? Would he have been the first overall pick as the savior of Cincinnati? Probably not. You might still be in college, doing what he where he would be. He had to, however, depart the school. And he won his championship and pointed at his ring finger for another school. In a different state and everybody, when these buckeyes, you Buckeye, I'm talking directly to you. I don't care. I'm double dominated for second year in Iran. I'm feeling my oats today. As you should. Thank you. Yes, sir. Get out of here. Get out of here. And don't push back that Brady had to sit behind drew Henson. Well, that's a fact. It's not the same. Brady did not have to leave Michigan. Well, he stayed till a senior year. Brady did not leave the school. It could happen. He went to Michigan, he stayed at Michigan. He was drafted from Michigan. It's two murals in the locker room. Correct. How many murals of borrow are they going to be in the Ohio State locker room? I mean, I don't know. I don't know, because you know why? Because he didn't graduate from there. He didn't win his national championship there. He didn't become the first overall pick there. And he may look at this if somehow it does filter to him and say, who the hell are you, Michigan guy to talk about it? And all I have to say is Joe, I love you. I love you. There's the photograph. There it is. It was put out by Nick Bosa. It's great. I love that they're Friends. I love that they all have an Ohio State connection, but one is not like the other. And everybody goes over it like a speed bump, like they forget. That he was shown the door at the Ohio State. That's forever more. No matter how many championships burrow wins and he has the stuff to win it. He has the stuff to win him. He is one of the greats. He is about to break the bank. He is all that plus the biscuit. But what he is not. Is somebody who stayed at Ohio State, his whole career. And I feel better saying that, even though it's really petty, I don't know where it is on the rich eisen show petty scale. It might be Lori. A little lower. Again, Bryce is the lowest level of petty. So we put it, Lori. It goes right. He goes Bryce from lowest to highest price story. Kyle Kyle. Tom, Tom, Richard. Mister. So you put it to Lori, right? I think it's Laurie. Because it's none of my business. It really is not my best. Because it bothers me because it makes them happy. I know the truth. Because they know it's the only way they could get in the same room, adjacent to the universe of Tom Brady. It's their path to try and get Brady and his 7 rings off the Michigan table. I don't understand. You do understand, you're just saying you don't understand it. But because border backs aren't good in the NFL, is that what we're getting at? No. I think Stroud is going to be the first overall pick and should be absolutely touted by Ohio State as proof that they are a terrific quarterback school which they are and they should sit here and go, yeah, Ohio State has a first overall selected quarterback. Good and they should feel great about it. Just as much as I feel great about being able to say to them, you didn't beat Michigan. But like, so it feels. That feels great. Hold on. Hold on a second. Hold on. That's Tom Petty. That's super hot. That's something. I don't know about Richard. Justin Fields wins a Super Bowl for the bears. Can Georgia fans not be happy for him? Of course they can. But when it all comes down to it, you can't put him in the same on the same pedestal as stetson Bennett. Stenson went there. Right. He stayed there. He was directed from there. Of course they can. Buck up fence can feel happy for him, but not like happy. I can't. I won't. I shan't. I will not. I think this is a YP. Admittedly. Yeah, all right. Let's take a break. 8 four four two zero for rich, number to Donald. Phone calls and also

"How are we going to close and get 9 outs at the end of the game? How are we going to compete against the mighty Astros, who are almost like the Dodgers on the west that have just dominated that division because once again, they draft well, Jim crane's got his finger on that team. He played baseball. He loves baseball. Dusty baker couldn't have been any more perfect to bring in after the whole 17 stuff. And you know what? They just keep plugging away. So now the angels, do they compete this year? Do the rangers compete with bocci. I love Nevin and boats. Managing their baseball dudes, give me the information, but at the end of the day, give me some gut feeling too. This game's about gut, not always about what's on paper. And last night, I'll give you a quick example. Padres mets are playing. Nelson Cruz is on the bench, okay? Against Matt Scherzer because we have Matt Carpenter starting at the DH. Now, Nelson Cruz's numbers against Max Scherzer were 404 40, whatever it was. And then I guess they asked them why isn't why isn't Nelly Cruz playing? Well, numbers don't matter. Well, what's that mean now? Because we're in a world that it matters, right? That seems like we get handed numbers and information and information on anything. Launch factor, launch angle. It used to be called an uppercut. And so it's only like we're going to use the numbers when they're working my favor. But sometimes we're not going to use numbers. So that stuff doesn't make sense to me. What makes sense is the angels, I think, with Nevin and boats and bringing back some of these old school bucks show author. You got some gut feeling in this game, and I think Daniels can compete this year, especially with the Altuve injury with the Astros, even though they're a darn good team and framer valdes, probably the most underrated picture in the big leagues. You don't even talk about. Best team in the NL is, which one would you take? Would you put your alarm on? If you were to say right now without getting all into the numbers of it, I think the braves are a good ball club. They're signed long-term. I think on top of us, it's been a great job over there in Atlanta. And I think they pitch, they have enough stuff, but I mean, I'm not going to discount the Dodgers. I mean, Dustin may be back and Maria. I mean, my goodness gracious and what they've done. But, you know, they're going to have to overcome some stuff, and that's typical, but right now I'd say the braves. Okay. So walk me through your preparation for this golf tournament. Seriously, he's talking about your putts. I mean, what do you got for you? Seriously right now, Mike milford, who's ran these tournaments for 35 plus years. Yes. I was in steamboat with him a couple weeks ago. I sat down and Mike's a one a handicapped to this day. I said, Mike, what can I do to get better? And he says, Kevin, put 20 minutes, 30 minutes, two times a week, make that make that a practice session. Yes. I never do that. We get to the golf course rich, right? We want to know what the bet is. Let's play some hammer, let's play 6, 6, 6, everybody's a teammate for 6 holes. You just want to play know what's better. Go practice 30 minutes a day, two times a week, so I've been doing that. I can drive the golf ball pretty much down in the good grass. Now I got to figure out how to get the ball in the hole and sometimes smoltz told me, John smoltz made one tip to me. And I'm going to tell you guys this. He said, Kevin, let me see how stroke again? Oh yeah, I know the problem. He grabbed my golf ball and he goes, you need to change balls. Your balls are afraid of the dark. That's a John. That wasn't very nice though. I was about to say Kevin that I wouldn't trust smoltz to give you a tip. I wouldn't trust smokes in a million years to give you a golf tip. He's so cutthroat. He's in cooperstown for a reason for many reasons, but a young age, Richie, as we have. And I think that since then at 19 to 23, when he started going with the convertible flat top, which we just pulled down that here, give him strength and courage, but yeah, he was one of the 20th lines ever. He goes, I got it. It's your fault. They're dark. They're afraid of the dark. It won't go in the home. I get it. I totally understand it. I wouldn't trust him in a million years, brother.

Let's do this more often. I'd love to catch out with you as this season begins to heat up. By the way, I have not heard the name rob deer in forever. I want to thank you. I once watched rob deer strike out against Doc gooden and chase stadium so many times they were looking for metals more precious than gold to call this umbrella. He was wearing that night. I mean, was it platinum or adamantium sombrero? I think he's honestly, he didn't touch a baseball audio and foul one off that night in chase stadium. Against white coat. What is the zero for 6 with 6 K's? What hat is that? I don't know. I'd have to Google precious metals. I don't know. There's gold. There's platinum. Whatever the hell is next? What adamantium isn't it what the Wolverine makes? Bones are made of that? Yeah, that's what it is. I don't know what it is. Vibranium is vibranium is what kind of Black Panther that could be that. It could have been a vibranium sombrero. Now you're going over my head. I like to just I'm not going over your head. I'm just going pop culture. That's all I'm doing. Take care of yourself, Kevin. Really appreciate it. That's Kevin Miller. Right here on the rich eisen show. Great walk and MLB play up in there. Oh my God, you. You Red Sox fans just remember in 2004 greatest walk and then Dave Roberts stole the game. Everyone in the world. Oh my God. Knew that he was stealing. Oh my God. His lead was bigger than a Cadillac. What's more and you still didn't throw him out. I don't know what to do. Just couldn't get it there. By the way, that would have been a great Jorge Salvador. Baseball fantasy team name if it wasn't so offensive to me. Facade is noodle arm. You know what? I don't know what is annoying. This is so old. It's like 19 years old now. And you mean the greatest collapse and it'll be. Oh my God, all of this business. It's facts. You know what also annoys me. This is what annoys me too. That annoys me, the Red Sox stuff annoys me with the Yankees and the Ohio State stuff with Michigan. It really gets my crawl and I should just let it go. There was a photograph of Joe Joe burrow with the two boses in Sam Hubbard, burrows teammate with the Bengals all at the latest UFC. In Miami. Yep. And all the Buckeye fan pages, 'cause I get it sent to me on Twitter and on my text from brier and money manager to the stars Don weir.

You might know that TJ 'cause it's an Irving Texas where Texas stadium used to reside. It's live on the golf channel, all three days of that competition. In the field, MLB network analyst World Series champion Kevin Millar back here on the rich eyes and show, how are you, Kevin? Rick, I'm doing good, buddy. Just trying to really pray about my putting. I'm tired of the 34 to 38 putts around. So I don't know what that number is, but can you guys say a prayer right now, lord I apologize? Now we can continue. Does it matter? I'm seeing Romo and Greg Maddux in the field. You're toast, brother. You're just there et cetera. Come on. Maddox I was toast with the 85 mile an hour backdoor sinker ground ball to second base three straight double plays in baseball. I could take him in golf. Oh, Romo, I'm toast, smoke some toast. Marty fish on toast. That's right. That's the guy some toast. I don't have 8 birdies in my bag. Did that Tahoe? Kevin, you're there for entertainment for the fans who are going to be there, but behind the ropes, you're the one to take selfies with, you're the one to entertain them. That's what you're there to do that. I mean, again, I don't mean to denigrate your golf game, but if you're worried about 34 putts versus 30 putts, forget it. Forget it, you know? Don't worry about it. I've been to Clubhouse guy my whole life, right? I was not good of a ballplayer, so I was just David and Manny and killings and Pedro's teammates. So I'll take that role on to my golf career. Yeah, here's what just again, you're there to keep everyone loose. And maybe driving a run or two. Pick your spots, Kevin. You know that. Full power. Two O three one, only thing I could ambush full power. I didn't go to right center. What was it like seriously stepping into batter's box against Maddox? What was that like back in the day? You got to get off the 27 inseam stirrups with the two in ones syrups and this pants didn't go all the way down, belt buckle was a little bit crooked. You had the nerdy look with the glove up. But it was magnificent, how he could repeat his delivery and win 350 games in the big leagues. And pro down away fastball for a strike. Every time. And then as soon as he got three inches off, I need to go 6 inches off. And then you know what? Has the Florida Marlins and we're in last place Maddox glavine and smoltz were dealing with that strike zone. This day and age, I would love to see them try to bring that stuff on the plate. And how many guys do you don't see many glasses wearing individuals in Major League Baseball anymore? I don't know if it's the lasik world, the he used to do that. I think he did that to troll on people. You know what I mean? I think you did too. Because then you meet Greg now and you're around him, he's funny. He's hilarious. He's kind of exactly what you would think. Yeah. You know? Just a little dirty, a little funny, a little awesomeness, and it's Greg max, he just he's so cool sometimes he doesn't even know he's Greg max, and you know those kind of athletes are fun to be around. Nobody likes an eagle, right? Kevin Millar here in the rich eisen show. So we didn't say that to him. No, you're great. I didn't take anything personal. I called you a Clubhouse guy, moments ago, and you didn't take that personally either. We're cool. We haven't spoken in a while. I got it. And you get me. We get each other. It's all good. You don't have to apologize. We're one of those guys that just we just talk to each other and having not spoken to each other in a while. And we're cool. We just slip right back into it. So the AL east is over, right? It's done. It's finished. We're finished. Tampa based, they've taken it. That's ten in a row. It's the first time since 1987. We've got the Milwaukee Brewers. We rob deer hit 28 home runs a year to probably a few times. Dale swain, my old third base coach with the Boston Red Sox Homer in that game, Robin Yao. So it's pretty amazing. It doesn't pulmonary hit about three 50. In 1987, now you look at the raise. Why don't we give them credit? Every year they win 90 plus games, they're a pain in the you know what? Is it because we don't have the $350 million player to kind of lift up and make him the face of baseball or I don't know why, but we don't give them any credit and they are awesome. Well, Franco could be that guy, maybe. I mean, he's on a path to do that. He's got that sort of talent. One would think, I mean, the shortstop wander. It's entirely possible. I don't know. They've got the pitching. I don't know. I think it's what it is is if you play in a stadium where the ground rules are associated with the different concentric circles that hang from your ceiling. And that might be a two. Could be that. Dick Vitale. The whole thing. I don't blame it on Vitale. I don't know, but they'll just beat you in ways that you don't see coming. I mean, I know it's an Indian stammer. The guardians are like that too. They're like the kings of the bloops and blasts and without the blast. I don't know. I don't know what it is. It could just be that they're in a division with the Red Sox and Yankees. I don't know. He was a pitcher for the starting pitcher for the All-Star Game last year, right? He goes. They never saw him pitch. He didn't even know who he was. That's what the rays are about. They draft well. It goes back to David price and Eva Longoria and James shields. They help at the big league level. You can't miss on your first round draft picks. And it's so funny how organizations, the scouts are the most underrated aspect of fielding an organization, right? Because we have reports, rich eisen's got a good fastball, his curveball might be on average. He throws it in two one hitters counts. Yes. Whatever it is, that's reports from scouts that are Vance scouts and now the draft. Too many teams miss on that aspect of it and then just want to go out and buy free agents and buy the best players after ten years in and now all the teams like the rays lose these guys or the Oakland a's and all these small market teams, but they figure out a system and whether you like it or not, whether big league players like or not. You don't want to see them in the postseason because why? Owners are looking around going, why are we spending $350 million a year? And I'm looking at the race salary at close to 75 to a hundred. Right? So then you're like, what are they doing? What are they doing right? And then you go like the Red Sox hind bloom. You get anybody Freeman from the Dodgers. Anybody that's with the raise organization, it seems like there's just a tick smarter or we perceive that. There are ticks more than everybody else. Kevin Millar here on the rich eisen show, what do you think of the angels chances to finally put Otani in the playoffs? I mean, that world baseball classic showdown with Otani and trout just reminded everybody, boy, it would be great to see these two on the same team, obviously, in the playoffs, but this is also a time where if the angels don't get it done in the first half of the season, you'd have to start thinking a lot of teams are going to be throwing themselves at the angels for ohtani in advances free agent year. What do you got for me on that, Kevin? Yeah, I love Phil Nevin getting a first full year to be a manager. I think he has been in paid his dues. I think he has been awesome for this club. I think the Rendon and the offense is going to hit he's going to be back healthy and the trout in the ohtani. Okay, all of that.

He's always surrounded by flames because he lives in hell. Dan those are the weekend observation. There were there were a ton of sports everywhere. But i do believe though that we need to talk a little more about yankees meant because we have not this. We have not seen this combination of elements where francisco indoor is fighting. All of mets fans and he was being whistled at. I love seeing any of this in baseball. God knows that personality isn't allowed in that sport so lindores fighting with his own fans. Lindores comes over there. God's this happened to bobbi baena. He seemed like a happy guy. Always smiling and new york wipe the smile off his face. Because you go there and your high paid and you underperform and you know. Mets fans can be cruel. So he's bullying the fans back with says and who. It was kevin millar as well. I think doing the fans back and then last night yankees mets fields fund. It stanton stop his home run trot as he passed link door stanton okay statuettes stanton unemotional stanton hits a bomb. When's the last time you saw guy during a home. Run trot stop between second and third to jaw at the shortstop because lindores like a big colorful personality. God almighty baseball. Please don't discourage that feed all of that. I so badly want some personality in your sport and all the repressed guys who run that sport forever having allowed personality. Yeah but i think they're owner one of those guys who's trying to stop it like the mets owners like. Hey enough apologize to the fans up doing. I know alderson. Yes of course. Protector of all things. Baseball and sandy alderson has been for for five decades but fun or not fun watching what it is that baseball interesting. The dugout empty guys just talking back and forth. There's not actually going to be a fight. I don't even understand why they're mad at each other. What does endore care. What is what is stanton cared. That lindores whistling at the fans while he runs the bases on one of three homerun. He's also been stopping on his home. Run trot three home runs in that game. And i mean it's good that the new york teams have a rivalry and the fact that they got any headlines whatsoever following the football weekend because i had that is not happening. The us open got some headlines as well. The the two finals were excellent. But like i had nothing but football getting any oxygen on a monday fairplay baseball for generating something. Well you had mets and yankees on september eleventh weekends. You knew that was going to generate some sort of buzz some sort of viewership and it did. I mean the games game very very good. So how much did you guys talk about last week. The way that the paul's are changing the fight structure. You see that trailers getting into the game here they they just basically have a party with snoop dogg and you know evanger. Holyfield's shouldn't be out there at fifty eight now. So i mean but but i mean evanger holyfield you can find the sound there of vander holyfield being. We interviewed him fifteen years ago and it was hard to understand what it is that he was saying because he's taken so many punches but the fighting space is now existing in the evolution of that sport in the circus tent in the event and extravaganza. Portion of the boxing is incidental. The boxing is a bygone time thing. Just put famous people in there. Why would anybody want to watch. Woodley and paul again like that was crap but it's famous. It's sold well and the fighters actually get money. Because the pay per view went crazy on showtime they added some elements. Put al bernstein on it. They put area hawaii on it. They give it some fight game. Feel paul brings in that crowd of people. And and what. You're watching. And i can't knock it stugatz because because it's working. Well i just can't knock him because if you want the spectacle pay for the spectacle you should pay for the spectacle and the paul's cashing in on this and i think it was the fourth or fifth biggest pay per view of all time even stugatz paul's not a legitimate professional boxer and woodley is not a boxer at all and so it's such a poor the fact that the money is going to something that is such a poor representation of the fight. Game must make the good boxers. Crazy must make the fighters who are excellent at what they do crazy. That are washed woodley. Who's not a standup striker. Would prop paul so that they can get to the next fight conor mcgregor and they're just taking so much money from people because over where dana white is. Dana white keeps it all dan. There are people like you that really tune in for.

"Luis Castillo, the record Hard to believe. As I look at it, I'm going to say it, but it's the fact one and eight with a 7 22 earned run average. Castillo has pitched 52 innings and given up 70 hits Can he make it out? Well, he'll make it out of the first. Can he make it out of the first with limited damage? First inning this year he's made 11 starts. He's given up 21 runs In the first inning this year. The opposition is 21 of 50 against him in the first their batting 3 89 in the first inning, and I know this is an over simply simplification of things, but I like to keep things simple, so I can understand them. Let me let me give you a little perspective on how things could be different. If Casteel were just To this point had just been a little bit better. I'm not even talking good. Let's just say to this point, he'd been slightly below average. For example, This is his 12th start this year. I mentioned this earlier. The Reds when he has started this year have a record of one And 10. Just imagine for a second. The Reds were five and six in his starts. Not not a winning record when he starts just five and six. You tell me how differently you would feel. If the Reds were 29 25 right now. That's the difference and something as simple as Castillo instead of the Reds winning one of these 11 starts, what if he'd been able to stay in games? So they won five of his 11 starts? I'm not even getting greedy. I'm not even saying they gonna win eight of his 11 or seven of his 11. I'm not even asking more than half of them. Just five of his 11 starts. And how differently we might feel about this team with a record of 29 25. But that has not happened. And to quote Tracy Jones. It is what it is. We'll see what he does tonight. He is opposed by Quang Young Kim left hander, one in three a 3 65 earned run average up next last night We talked with Chris Rose about his new show that Chris Rose rotation. And his guest yesterday was Nick Castano's. I played a little bit of what Nick told him last night. I'm going to let you hear two more of Nick's comments that just every time I hear Nick cost honest, it's one thing watching him play. It's hard not to love what he does watching him play. But even when you listen to him talk in his Just his approach to the game to life, his desire his passion. It is hard not to just love the guy. You're gonna hear a little bit more on that and we'll set up tonight's lineup. Wait to hear who's in center and who's at first and who's batting ninth. It's all ahead. It's the RL carriers inside pitch on 700 wlw. This is Yarnell carriers inside pitch. Arnell carriers has immediate job opportunities nationwide driver's freight handlers, mechanics, clerical and more. Visit our l c dot com For more information Last night we talk with Chris Rose Area Product. Miami proud Miami RedHawks grad. He also worked at TV stations here in town, and you may know him over the years for nearly a decade, he was the co host with Kevin Millar of MLB network's intentional talk. His contract was not picked up from there, and he's gone on to add a new show through a John boy media and it's called the Chris Rose rotation and he does. He has Different. I think it's six rotating co host with him who are major league baseball players, and they interview Major League baseball players. And they had Nick Castellanos on the show yesterday, and one of the most revealing things was Knicks told him that He decided he had a lot of clutter in his life and in his mind, and he wanted to simplify things and he got rid of his smartphone. And he he uses a foot bone. And he joked, and he said it cost him $11.98 a month. Uh, call it calls and text for 11 90 endless calls and text for 11 99 a month and he showed him the the foot phony uses, And he said he had become so consumed by his smartphone. And social media and everything and keeping track of things that he cluttered his head and complicated his life, and he decided to go simple and he tossed his smartphone. And in talking about that, he added. This about what it's what it's helping him within his life. Take a listen. I think it's what do you want to do? Right? Like what do you want? For me. I want to be able to say that I gave everything I could to be the best baseball player. I can be right. I want not only to be the best baseball player I can be, but I want to also be somebody that can make the people around me better because at the end of the day, I want to win a ring. You know, so like I would much rather whenever it is that I hang it up. I hang it up on my own accord, saying that like man, I gave everything to this. So whenever my next chapter of my life starts, I don't have any regrets. How good is that? How good is stuff like Dad? Oh, man, Nick Castano's, um, looking down the road be prepared. This will be a conversation as we get closer to July the end of July in the sense of where the reds are and where they see the organization going because Nick Castellanos has the opt out if he wants it. Who opt out and become a free agent. Now that doesn't mean he dropped out and necessarily leave some to go someplace else. He could say I'm opting out. Um, I'll still listen to what you want to offer. He's under contract for a total of four years. The way the contract was written. There was an opt out at the end of year one. He didn't choose it this past year. There'll be an opt out at the end of this year for him to total of four. The remaining two years, I think are 16 million each year. Also keep in mind. There could be probably will be a lockout coming next season. So if you're Nick, do you do you stay where you are with the money you've got. Do you roll the dice and become a free agent? Just there's a lot of factors in play here that I'm not ready to address because it gets very depressing thinking of what could happen. Keep it in the back of your mind, one more from Nick Castano's and he's in a town. He he talks about in this comment about, um, You know, he's booting in ST Louis. He's public enemy number one because of what happened with the suspension and the the stared out on the, um the grunt standing over Woodruff, the pitcher and the two game suspension, he told Chris Rose. How and why he loves playing in ST Louis. Isn't it fun to get booed in a visiting stadiums? My so my favorite place to play right now on the road in ST Louis for that very reason. Oh, they like you walking up walking up defense affairs out into it every day..
