They both got kicked out. They weren't they weren't even in there at the end of the game when you know fans really started cheering and it looked like we could possibly come back so that was. That was pretty interesting. Yeah they the fans did get loud at the end. When they the lakers made that run they cut it to about six when they took it from there were down. Twenty seven keret is talking about zero down twenty seven and they cut it to five with a minute and a half to go and and brad stevens was so mad. He pulled all of his subs out and put his start back in and they had no answers. Jaylen brown karenin. Did anything surprise you about the whole night about how things went down or did did you find it to be pretty efficient. Everything was really really efficient. Coming in I had the tickets for our group of four and security. You know they basically made everybody come to me but it was really efficient. Everybody was really pleasant. Really nice There was one guy right before the game that bought food and try to bring it back to a seat and it was almost like the mob you that was also And it was like he you could you. It looked like he wanted to go hide under a seat. Because i don't know if he didn't know rules or what but he brought us back to the seat and quickly he Went back out in the four hundred.

"Espn hey guys. I got your answer. Let's go plus one over please. Over and and who you got left carlos and mid city carlo seventeen. Espn hey what's up. guys man. He just took my hand at one over to put him go with three over three over. Okay carlos you're right he did take your answer. Connor hit it on the number. It's happened three times. one over. Par is the madison is is the highest winning scraped up in three times. Sam snead jack. Burke and zach johnson all won the masters one over twenty two shots different than dustin johnson winning in november. And this year. It looks like it's going to be somewhere around. ten under. connor is the winner. Excellent by the way dodgers have now retired the nationals or dodgers have been retired by the nationals in the eighth inning. I means we go to the top of the ninth closing situation for the dodgers. They're up one. Nothing and that is cory canaveral down. I knew it you and your thirty five saves for kenley jansen backup. Is i drafted corey able to my fantasy team. Oh that's good. So so there's there's a win there somewhere but it looks like it's going to be can able in this save opportunity today. Okay so. I wanted to god. I don't even know if there's enough time for this. I'm gonna. I'm gonna. I'm gonna do so. There was a picture. Send out of khloe kardashian. Untouched in other words. Not no photoshop. Or anything in sort of a bikini shot and it was put out. Inadvertently i guess by her publicist or whoever operates her social media and this thing started to spread like wildfire and people at opinions and looks great or khloe looks. This khloe looks that. Then all the sudden kris jenner says. Hey that photo wasn't supposed to be going out. So we are withdrawing it if you have it and you posted. We will seek legal action against you. Who is in the wrong here. Mace have not figured out the kardashians. Mo yet kris jenner is a genius. She is a marketing genius. If she doesn't say anything about that picture nothing happens instead. You're reading a story about a call back picture. These guys send out two hundred pictures a day. Do you think she really cares. She's looking for a lawsuit right. The publicity can't go out and sue people who happened to re post or post. I don't think she's gonna sue people. You took the bait. You did the the pr for her. You read the story at a sports radio. Show these the kardashians. Do this all the time. So you think. I'm just getting trolled lindsay. Would you please jump in here. This is exactly what christian happen. Because i feel like i just feel like the fact that they're trying so hard to get this picture scrubbed for the picture i think. Yeah it's yeah it's it's there's nothing wrong with the pig recalling it because they want the attention but this is like the boss we had who used to send an email every week summarizing everything happening at the station and then he would he would send it out then he would say recall because there was a mistake in writing would resend it and the whole was. Let's find let's go back to the original one and find the mistake. That guy can't call a photo. Yeah exactly and she knows that. So now the headline on if you google khloe kardashian. Look at what comes up hundreds of stories about this over the last two days. As soon as i looked at the picture i went there again. They're getting tons of publicity. They're great at this. There may maybe better than anyone ever your story. You read the other day about how. I don't know kinda was i really do. I think they're really grasping here. I think they're really grasping. And she's got an attorney lined up and the way this is all but what do you mean like she knew. What are they need the publicity for like. It's not bad publicity because look publicity. Khloe said she. She said that her whole life every morning every day every hour people criticizing the way that she looks ready. She's been she's become a completely sympathetic figure. And all this and by the way guys. This is the final year of keeping up with the kardashians. Yeah the final season of their tv show. All of this is going to play out on tv. I don't know if she's completely sympathetic. I think it's split down the middle. Because i don't think for her somebody who's yeah. She's all like body positivity in love yourself and all that stuff but then she saying i can have a picture of me unedited on the internet. Heaven forbid you're going to get three episodes out of this you guys fell for it done three. You know what i'm talking about. You watch keeping the crash but you guys fill for janis one hundred percent right on this one you guys. We're talking about it. Aren't we code next. Four game games in his my game today as By the way. The dodgers have a one nothing lead on the nationals. There is one away in the top of the ninth and on the mound. I'm pretty sure i got that right. That's corey canabal right. Yup and he's already got one out one strikeout and two more outs in the dodgers win all right so corey cable with the save will keep you up to date with that. Plus game games coming up next mason and ireland seven ten espn. But i celebrate asian victory. The dodgers win on.

"No blake. China's great he just gave up a double in game. But i know but you can't pull a guy after one hitter. Why not that happens all the time. It doesn't happen all the time. First of all you've got to face at least three batters that's number one so he can't he can't be taken out. That's the new rule that he put in last year. That's gotta be in there. At least three batters. I can take an injury. An injury alliterate. This is chris baker writing. Let me start by. Saying i'm a massive fan blah blah blah bowl ballpoint die hard dodgers fan now. This guy's got an interesting point. He says i've waited my whole life. See the dodgers finally win. The big one and i was absolutely horrified to see that the day they get their rings and celebrate the world series. Victory the game was going to start at one o'clock in the afternoon. I'm a union carpenter that gets off work at two so when i checked to see the start time. I was appalled. Big business decision to get ratings from the east coast when this should be a west coast celebration. Thanks a lot to the mlb. For taking a moment. That i've been dying to enjoy and making me watch the highlights. After the fact. I can't believe this isn't even a big deal. I love your work. Please never stopped doing do blah. Thanks for the last thing. Interesting point mace. Remember that when and i were growing up the world series was all day games. Remember that that that they didn't play world series games at night absolutely and by the way training just gave up a bunt single so now there's runners on first by the way this is the guy you want to close by the way. If here's a technical question. Yeah if they intentionally walked the next guy like let's say this guy steals second base. Yeah there's a second and third if they walk a guy is that training third batter would be it is you got face three hitters. Yeah so even if he walks them but going back down. Who's against thinking in the email that is that is chris. I go christopher chris's point they eventually said we can't afford to play the world series games during the day and there's the steel i told ya store. They got him. They got him yeah. They threw him out yup so so runner a third one out. It's a decade hit. He pulled it off had robust been able to steal that base. They met a walk a batter. And then you could go to the pen correct. But but to chris's point may the one thing that the dodgers have always protected is opening. Day considered a tradition. You know it's been going on since colfax and drysdale and even jackie robinson. So i think the dodgers are going. Because they're clinging to that one piece of their tradition. Yes they're never going to move opening day to a night game but they could and the world series games are all at night now. Or how about this. You keep opening day and you do the second night as banner in ring night. Let's face it. The average working person this afternoon at eleven thirty and eleven forty five couldn't see the ceremony couldn't even watch. It couldn't be part of it. I mean know why. Not play if you're if you're dead set on an afternoon game to start the year. Fantastic make make saturday night ring night or banner night when people can actually watch because it is. I do understand this guy's point. I mean a regular working dude did not get a chance to see the ceremony. Yeah and it was really cool by the way what baseball does is they have getaway days so if you have a three game series the team that needs to get away and get on a plane. They make the third game day game. Yes i get that but that's not what this was. This was just opening day. For the sake of opening day they easily could have started this game at seven o'clock at night. Yeah no no question about it. No question about it. I saw the dodgers jam. It is the top of the eighth inning blake. Training is on the mound. There's a runner at third with one away in the dodgers holding onto a one. Nothing lead in this season opener very very tough spot for blake. China will keep you up to date.

"Year and absolutely did here. He is talking about what he's been working on. During spring training just know cannot be just being efficient now but just I feel like the last few year while lack of command. Wasn't there so this number one priority. The work on this offseason is to put them out body decision that i can have a great Here he is on whether he felt bad that he wasn't on the mound for the world series. Clincher last year felt password. Paul someone on most of the time kick everybody up most career so You know it's And halil was involved with rail that postseason on the whole season. So you gotta give do not quite two front offers dock everybody You know just an than we all wanna championship. So of course you know out free. Like i could be out there and get the last hour but no doctors keep bryant withholding because while the will on the playoffs in that game he wants pitchy. Okay last thing. Does he feel bad. He's talking about you john. Does he feel bad. That dodger fans don't want him closing. The is a noble i. Am i know what i'm capable of doing. So whatever image is out there right now. that's not me. That's i'm going to stay to myself. I'm gonna keep putting him and keep working because at the end of the day another way in. I know what you're doing so at the end of the debate of you can have. And hopefully i can spoil you guys again. Yeah i mean. Last year he saved eleven games. He struck out thirty three guys in twenty four innings strikeout rate still very high. Three three three e. r. a. And actually had a very good run during the regular season. And there's nothing wrong with that the year before thirty three saves five and three and a three seventy one era he. The guy can still get outs in his pitch really really well during spring training. I think we should all be a little bit more accepting of the idea that this is the guy we're going to see on the mound in the ninth inning and awful lot during this regular season. Why does it have to be the ninth inning. Why can't he pitch earlier in the game like they did in the postseason he could. But why would you not go to the guy who's having the best spring. Why would you not. Why would you not want the guy who having the best spring to go ahead and close out for because the guy. That's not having good as spring. I wanted to go to a guy that i've seen the movie. The kenley jansen movie. I know how it ends. He's he's throwing five scoreless innings and struck out nine walking none so far during the pre. Why would you want somebody who's having a spring not as good to be the closer. I don't mind them throwing him out there in april and may and if he can prove that he can be that guy then great. But i've seen this before. And i know how it ends and i think they should have a backup plan. I ask them. Yeah i mean. I think it look here. What's that we're doing hernandez i'm anti dylan. I'm anti dylan. Why why already talk about kenley jansen. October meltdown because the world series. When he's having when he's having a tremendous spring. There's there's no pressure on the guy pitching in spring right. But he's he's throwing well. His velocities up has cutters cutting all that stuff. I think he's going to have a really good year. Yeah there guys who can do it. In practice and basically spring training is practice and then when the games come along. They can't do it well. He did it eleven times last year. Just one of those eleven times in fifty games. I mean that's not a lot. A fifth of the time i mean. It just seems to me that they could come up with better options. But i'm not. Hey april and may mean anything to me. I think the dodgers are going to the playoffs. Even if they win one game in april and may they're that good so if they wanna put him out there in april may and he wants to show everybody what he can do more power to him. Go for. I don't. I don't have anything against him. Personally i just think he gives everybody a heart attack when he goes out there. Yeah i think by the way i think. Every team's closer gives them a heart attack. I think if you talked to the average baseball fan they look good. They're closing mario handke's i think they've choosing again you choosing the alternate outlier. You're choosing the greatest reliever in the history of the game. Sure i i would agree with. They didn't worry right. But i'm doing your brewers in its corey knievel. You've got a different feeling. Corey can eagles on our team. Now yeah but josh hader. I think is i'd rather have hated than jansen. Hater throws one hundred and one miles an hour He's got some off the field issues but that guy can throw heat. It just seems to me that johnson is. You always say what's new what's next it's not him. He's what's old yeah. I think he's gonna have a really good year a really good year by the way i i will draft him in my fantasy league without question because i see those thirty five saves and i see that productive season. You know both bronstein. And lindsey our new franchises in my fantasy league. The team different team different teams there. Each of their own franchises. This league has been going since nineteen eighty eight. There are four of us. Now that have been in this league since nineteen eighty eight and lindsay. And adam are both going to be chum in the water for us because this league fill in the nba league. He'll be chumming the water. When you're the one drift in kenley jansen is or closer we will find out we will find out coming up next for you. Have you seen the new show. The rock the one about the young rock. No i saw a promo for. But i haven't seen the show okay. There's a really cool moment in that. That i wanna play coming up for you and let me ask you about body shaming when we come back body shaming. I'm ashamed of my body. Does that count. i believe it does. I believe it does mason. Ireland seven ten. Espn hey what's going on. It is thursday. Ncwa tournament technically starts. Tomorrow there are playing a couple of are there. Are there games going on right now. When does ucla play ucla. Cool then tomorrow. It's malay there's thirty or sixteen games going on they'll be going on while we're on the air instead of thursday friday this year. It's friday saturday. So it's a little bit different.

Football at the university of miami played defensive tackle miami during the hurricanes glory years injuries prevented him from fulfilling his potential and making it to the nfl but young rock provides a glimpse of what it was like during his early.
Kim Ng Makes Baseball History
"We'll somali i. Can you talk about your own relationship with kim hang. How did you get to know her. I started reporting on the dodgers around two thousand eight or nine with espn. And i'd see her on the field and she always was just kind of calmly standing there and you know just seemed like whatever interaction she had with people were seemed to be efficient and short and so it kind of intrigued me. Who is this person. So we just got to talking like. Oh this is this is coming. She's says gm and all of a sudden she's telling me stuff like we've got this kid kenley jansen as a catcher. You really can't hit those we put them on a mound and the results are interesting. Clayton's working on a slider molly. You should really check it out. But the where she would say it was so matter of fact and so dislike whole-home that that's kind of what stood out to me about her and then we've kept in touch over the years. How would you describe her personality. What she like completely unflappable. I think the first thing that needs to be done is. I've got a really familiarize myself with all. The ins and outs of the players. Deadpans are totally cool under pressure. Like the person you gonna call if you were kidnapped and needed the ransom delivered by noon with no you know without tipping off the police or anything else you. She won't be there. Where are we who these players are. And you know. That's that's at this point. The nuts and bolts of the job. Well for those. Who don't know that much about kim. And can you tell us about her career path so she played softball diversity of chicago. She was an infielder. She was really good. I was really a a sports nut love to play and she then became an intern with the white sox and twenty one years old working in the white sox baseball ops as an intern and at the time the other white sox were very good club had a lot of good young players and it was really just about learning and soaking it. All in absorbing all that i could and by the time she was twenty nine she was brian. Cashman the yankees assistant general manager and that was in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight. They won titles ninety eight ninety nine and two thousand now. Let's be clear here. That had she been a man she would have gotten a gm job somewhere else. But that didn't happen. Molly you about saying and how. She operated differently than her peers in l. a. Can you tell us about that. I mean that that dodgers organization was by a bunch of guys who were so emotional so yell at each other so in their feelings she was just sort of just like standing there. Like i can't believe you guys and so it was just like toddlers running around at her feet. Two thousand five. The gm position becomes open and she interviewed for that job. What happens there. She was by all accounts. She was right there and franklin court the former owner of the dodgers wanted to hire her her pedigree spoke for itself. She had three world series rings. She had sixteen years in the business and the owner frank mccord. He wanted the credit of hiring the first female general manager. But what i was told later was that he was scared of the backlash of being the first guy to fire a female general manager. Because as we know it's a cutthroat industry n. gm's they don't their shelf life long even talented ones and so that was one of the reasons he was too scared of that. I guess the mcchord years got really ugly and about i say i wanna say two months before. The dodgers filed for bankruptcy. Because of a court drove the team into the ground. She got out of there and went to work with joe. Torry be again demonstrating how smart. She is molly. You know as well as anybody that kim has been talked about for basically twenty years now as the person who is going to be the first woman. Gm in baseball. Do you have a sense. For how many teams have considered her or interviewed for this position. Because yesterday when i wrote my story i published. I said as far as we know. The dodgers angels the padres the giants the mariners. They've all any reader and within like two minutes. My story going up. Somebody with orioles texted me. Oh we interviewed or to like it was just like everybody is interviewed her. Just sit there going through this anymore. They're just putting me through this so they can fill their quota or whatever i'm not gonna put myself section but she just did not give up and that's really the way a lot of my career has gone is just every step of the way it working as hard as i could give you my nose to the grindstone and just you know getting to the next level but i think this is so valuable to any of us who do have specific dream in mind about something. We'd like to do one day. And that's you know when you call close and you don't get that job that you desperate for just got a flick flush it and let it go and not let it break you to the point where you're not going to try again.
Los Angeles Erupts As Dodgers Win First World Series Championship In 32 Years
"I WANNA zoom out here now on the dodgers as this franchise because this was their first championship in thirty two years and I was watching Dave Roberts and putting aside all of the Cova. Complications it was hard not to feel something for that guy and it was hard to feel something for this organization N. This fan base and this city. So what did you make of the dodgers finally getting over? This. Particular Hump, you know I think that Dave Roberts has been a guy who at times has been rightly maligned for his decision making but the decision making that will stick with me from this postseason has to do with two pitchers Clayton Kershaw in Julio. Arenas Dave Roberts twenty four hours before he won a world series championship got booed by a crowd that was almost entirely dodger fans at a neutral site stadium. It was a really weird thing. This guy who's got all these supposed demons and October's getting a standing ovation coming off the field. For for people who think he should have stayed in the game it was just a very bizarro situation and you know what I think Dave? Roberts. made the right move there. And people are always going to say process over outcome process over outcome raised died on that mantra and. Dave Roberts lived on it. He ended up going with Julio Arias for the last three innings of the clincher in the S. In the last three innings of the clincher in the world series he had Clayton Kershaw and Kenley Jansen, his two rocks out in the bullpen ready and willing to go and he said now I'm a stick with a kid who's pitching. He stuck with the guy who looked good and that is one thing that Kevin cash did not do. And there's an argument to be made. That they lost the world series because of that. And then you look at Julio. Maria Standing There Austin Barnes catching that call third strike in grabbing the ball with his right hand and stuffing in his back pocket. That's history in his back pocket right there and the celebration that came afterward and all of the madness and weirdness and oddity of two thousand twenty being wrapped up in such a perfect though.

Can stay in Texas can't live in this state can this is not my favorite state I say sex come on seeing George and Z and John Laugh Crosstalk next for you Mason Ireland Seventeen Espn. Bergman, got fired from the twitter in game tweeting Gig with. George. What happened? Well, he he didn't take it seriously as he needed to take John because he won when the dodgers were up three to one or down three to one in the last series. He he decided the weekends we're too busy for him, and my thing is listen if you're going to commit. To something you got to commit to it. We promoted this dodger expert Greg Berg Rei right was going to be live tweeting throughout the playoffs and then he decided to give up his mantle basically position. So yeah, he's no longer dodger expert Greg Bergman. This reminds me of the time when Mason was the Lakers pre-game host unless the game happened on a weekend, right? What's by the way? Important enough five away. There's a reason that Mason I get along so well, and the alliance is strong over the last several years the one year I did the Lakers pre-game my stipulation as well. So that was the creation of sleep because he was willing to do it every game. All right. L Z is is tonight the night or do we have to until tomorrow night in better beat tonight because I bought a new outfit for tonight. Are you now, who are you watching the game with? Me Now, are you going to showcase this outfit? So we can see it. Come on how simple you think I am do you think I need adoration of people watching me and my outfit? One hundred percent? Yes. What he's GonNa I'M GONNA. Post it very soon. Okay. So tell me if you agree we had Chris rose on the show. Okay. Earlier in the hour. Yeah, and Chris suggesting that there is a realistic scenario under which the dodgers could be up by one late in the game. Yeah and bring in Kenley Jansen. Yeah.

"kenley jansen" Discussed on Afternoons with Marcellus & Kelvin
"I convinced John Ireland that Walker Bueller should be the guy that Dave Roberts should reverse course and should've thought this through more. Why do you believe that Tony Gone Selene is the right man today. because. I like the idea of one. making sure that your gun. Walker Bugler is in his prime conditioning as much as possible. in a must win situation if we were to get there. If we're if, we're to get there. I WANNA. Make sure that our ASE has its rest. That is blisters won't be an issue that he is fired up to go with one win to go if it gets there. When I don't want to have happen. Is that we go into a gain six with a walker builder, a little less than optimal, and if things don't turn on the way, we got Tony Gossip against southern. WHO If given my choice, I would much rather go with the way that day then laid it out, and that organization has decided as opposed to you know what you're suggesting, which isn't a bad suggestions as George is not bad. It's just from my perspective. The last time you had bullpen game I remember be up. Still almost won that game. And if our bats show up, this is all anyway. I bought a new outfit. got a brand new t shirt kept brand new pants brand new hat. Like I'm I'm going to be squeaky clean. crispy. We're GONNA take care of it tonight. Tonight. Yeah so I I. Don't I hope that's the case and I agree with you that if the if they come to hit none of it matters anyway and maybe gunman does revert back to the guy he was during the regular season when he was incredible. But during the postseason, like for I believe he pitched forty five innings and is your ray was under a two and a half and he had a stretch I think of twenty-something scoreless innings at one point he was incredible but he has not been that guy during the postseason in that. That makes me a little fearful. I, gotTa be honest with you. I mean listen. There's no question that regardless of sports, the postseason is just more difficult. There's no question about it. And that they're rolling out their best pitcher I, get all of quite Blake's now is their best pitcher. Yes. He's their best pitcher. I'd get all of that but I do believe we'd say smell out the game we not. Yes we did. We I mean, chase them up the game. Didn't they win that game? They won the game, but we started to beat him up and he was out before six. I mean I think most teams nowadays though they're doing the out your outlook no no no I mean he he wasn't taking because that was the plan we beat them out. Scored two runs on them? Yeah. In foreign two-thirds. Yeah. So I mean. strikeouts though he was pretty good. No no, he was. He was pretty good lights out. He was actually going with a no hitter into the fifth inning. Yeah. He by the way he had never he hasn't pitched just. So people know he has not pitched more than five in two thirds as entire postseason. Yeah. We got this. We got this job. Your jaw fireworks. Ready we go. Let's go to the phones hosie people want to Chime in on this conversation Dean is in Norwalk what's up Dean? How you guys doing today I'm finally got in and I just had a comment couple of comment. Early on, you're talking about Kenley Jansen, my opinion if do not put Kenley Jansen in the game unless you have at least four, one league because he is going to give up the long ball I like. Kinley. But for the last couple of years, he has gone down and my mets thing is why not go with Bueller this happened to us in game two. Okay. Why not go with newer they're going with their aides you have to go for the kill tonight Yup do not hold dealer to say well, just in case we go to a seven game we don't. Want to think about that. Yes. The dodgers did make a little running game too. But if you would have you in the game, we won that game because he would have shut their players. Now that's all. That's all I have to say I just I don't understand it. Why not go with were tonight Yup. Dean. Thank you so much obviously I agree with you. I'm with meals e I just think I listen I. You know me I I liked when it comes to my sports I, like to play aggressive. Okay. I like the coaches that go on fourth down Those things to me being aggressive to me. I. Like that being rewarded and I just think when you look at Walker Buehler's performance this postseason, the names of the pitchers who have outperformed him. and. There's only look you know three or four or all not just hall of famers but like all time greats okay. In regards to one postseason stretch like this kid is the best player on this team not named Buki Bets Right now. I mean listen. I think that we all agree the Walker Bueller is as. We all feel as if when he's the amount that it gives us our best chance to win. Are we in agreement with that. Yes. So, if we find ourselves in gained sudden, how do you feel about Walker Bueller on the mound..

"Got a Scout Other teams as much as you scout your own team, your objective is to know more about the other guys. I. Organization than he knows, and that's how they stole a guy like a Radio Raina arena. During the off season in a trade with the cardinals they scouted him. They knew that's exactly what they wanted, and by the way the guy makes nothing nobody on this race team really makes much of anything. Unbelievable. Yes. Now right now is the one guy. But. Think about this. Only five of these guys during this shortened season are making in excess of a million dollars They've got Morton at fifteen million for this year that's our highest paid player and they've got Snell at seven. Everybody else a million or less. So the fact that they're able to do this and what's weird about the storyline right? Is that Andrew Friedman invented the system the Tampa Bay has used. So successfully over the years, they're basically cribbing what Andrew Freedman left, and now they're facing an Andrew Friedman team with a gigantic budget, all the same principles all the same. Objectives, but they're able to do it with a bigger payroll and in the end I think that the talent there's just in the same way there was more talent on the Lakers than there was a there is more talent with the dodgers than there is with Tampa Bay particularly at the plate and I think the dodgers are going to break this series. I think they're going to raise your to dodgers and five straight to the title cakewalk. Let there be cake let.

A look at all 16 possible World Series matchups
"Allow with us right now is is EMMA LB Major League baseball analyst insider extraordinaire the great one himself the one and only Kirk Chin who will be in attendance for tonight's Oakland a's Tampa Bay rays one game divisional playoff game. What's going on man? How are you how's everything I'm great Stephen? Even a I'm at a playoff game. It's a winner. Take all situation on October the second this is pretty good stuff. You really really liked this one game stuff don't you. You really liked him. Well what I think it does Stephen Obviously it brings a game seven half. Let's fear to the beginning of October that that game last night was a really good game but it was even better because the poor brewers had to go home after losing and granted. It's really unfair that one of these teams tonight both worked on ninety five or more games going to have to go home after one but it does bring increased integrity to the regular killer season. It makes those hundred sixty two games so important so you don't have to play in this game but the fact that the loser goes home home makes it. It has a level even high. I gotTA admit him. I'm very shocked by that position that you take because you are one of the most fair minded people I've ever known on and to go to a hundred and sixty two game season and it to come down told one game. It's it almost seems grew. It really does well. It is cruel stephen a but this is a cool sport and I was not in favor of this but here is the option if we were gonNA play a best best of three. Let's say and you are the New York Yankees. Let's say you want your division and you get to host the next round and we have ties leading into the wild card situation and then you play best of three it's possible the Yankees can win a hundred and ten game name say in a season and then take eight days off before they play a playoff game. That isn't fair you need to you need to really welcome the teams teams that won their division and put them in the best possible spot but if you make them wait a week before they get to play. I don't think that's fair. Wow Turkey right here with steven a radio. ESPN news fair enough. That game was something special last night at least the last couple of innings of soda to to to to Gino's keynote hit it to right field identify Grisham to commit that era. I gotTa tell you it was great to see how electric atmosphere was. How much did baseball Paul need particularly when we have just heard reports come down to how attendance drop but so like a six year low or something like that right well baseball can use all the health can get right now? It's still for me at least the greatest game and yet things are starting to slip a little bit and big game like that starting out like that in a city. That's like the biggest game the nationals of one well biggest game. A team in Washington is one baseball nineteen thirty three for goodness sake. That's what made it so good. That's why that celebration was so good and I'll crom tonight. Stephen Ain't no matter what happens this is gonna be a great night for baseball 'cause weighty. Did you see the Oakland Coliseum tonight with fifty thousand people in your they don't have the most fans in the world but the fans they have our rate and they are loud and it should be a tremendous atmosphere so this is a great jump start to the postseason in baseball last night in Washington and no matter what happens tonight tonight tonight in Oakland who you have when you look at tonight's game just evaluate this this match up to me between the as and Tampa Bay talk to me about you know who's looking good in mismatch in what well I like both teams. I'm GONNA pick I like it matters. I'M GONNA pick the as because they're at home. I'M GONNA pick the as Ashok MNAYA WHO's four no with a one twenty-one year as it's coming off the list has been great. Their bullpen is pretty darn good and they can just ask Mash Stephen a more than any team in the history of the Oakland A.'s in the franchise so they can really pounded but they're going up against Charlie Morton who was one of the best pitchers in the game this year. I saw his last start against your Yankees Steven A. and he he threw six scoreless. Let's see was completely dominant and if you throws like that he's GonNa win tonight. That's how good he was so this is a toss up game. I'll just take the as 'cause they gotta pick. Somebody and I'll take 'cause they're at home. You brought up my Yankee so let's get right to it because you know that's what I really really care about. Tim Kirk Okay. I'm very concerned earn. I am not concerned about the Minnesota twins even donate three hundred and seven home runs this year. I just think they're allergic to prosperity whenever their face against the New York Yankees the Houston Houston Astros are an entirely different matter with Verlaine with Cole Whitt Cranky. I don't see anybody beating. These guys. Talk to me about my yankees prospects. The this postseason Tim Kirk well first off. Do not look pass the twins. Even though I'm with you I believe will win. This series do not look past the team that can swing it like that. Team can second I think the Astros are the best team not just in the American league but in both leagues and I'm not sure how any team to navigate through those friends for you guys in the rotation especially coal and Burland at the top and I'm also going to tell you it's even a there or is hope that the Yankees can win the world series that make you really happy a bunch of things have to happen of course after mash like they always do the bullpen has to be great great like it always has been but Luis Severino comes back and give them five dominant innings. Can we've seen him do and if James Paxton this good he's one ten starts in a row. If Tanaka can give them one really good start or a few really good starts I think they are good enough to win the world series with the team that they have now but I still have them as the third best team in baseball go in behind the Astros and the dodge transitioned to the Los Los Angeles dodgers. They've got to face these Washington nationals in the LDS. How do you see that matchup handicap that for me well? I liked the dodgers in that matchup with the understanding understanding that if Max Scherzer can return to being the great Max Scherzer which he has not been since he came off the injured list is not he wasn't that guy last night. He wasn't that Guy September. If he returns to the best he's ever been with him. In Strasbourg Patrick Corbin they can give the dodgers a really really hard time with with that starting rotation and that lineup is very potent these days. I just think the dodgers are more complete team. They hit the ball out of the Ballpark ballpark with anybody. Three stars in the rotation are really good. My key question with 'em is is their back end to the bullpen as good as it needs to be Kenley Kenley Jansen get the people out. He needs to get out if he can't. They're not going to win the world series. How wants faiths the dodgers fans having jetson? I know I don't have much. I like the guy personally early but I I I don't. I don't trust him. I don't trust them a big spots. I think he can be hit. Talk to me about him. For a second yeah his is down his cuddled. It doesn't have the same movement to better tad in the past and that gives fans of pause. They do have some other health back there there but I really thought they'd go get more help at the trade deadline and they didn't so they're gonNA hope starting pitching and power is going to carry them and they're hoping pinged Kenley Jansen his best but I seen him much much better than he's been this year. What should we make about the fact that you've got high payrolls dodgers Yankees you know old? I don't know the order in which is the highest payroll. You would know that at this particular juncture but I must ask you Tampa Bay is in the postseason obviously lowest payroll in major league baseball well. I do believe I know that I mean how do you explain the fact that teams like the as in the Tampa Bay rays notoriously alot payrolls manage to get this fall and sometimes further dentist with the highest payrolls talked about that for a quick second as a protest. Why baseball is so great even a is that Lebron doesn't touch it on every possession? Kevin Durant doesn't touch it on every possession it is so much more of a eighteen game in its own way because you could lose a superstar and still be really good you have to draft and develop properly like the as and the rays done you have to play the game in a better manner because you can't afford to make a mistake because you know either in free agency or trade because it could set that you back with a raise did they. They got Austin Meadows and tyler glass now in a deal for Chris Archer Saint the whole team now they've ninety games two years in a row they they are really good but they're really 'cause they play the game even a defense base running better than most teams do instead of just sitting back saying well. We're GONNA hit a three run at home this morning so we don't have to do all the other things so. Let's get all of this out of the way right. Now Tim Cook while you're here with me. Yankees twins you. Have you have one in that series. I've got the Yankees over the twin yes with the warning. I say it again. Don't underestimate a team that hit over three hundred homers with the as as you picked as over the race tonight which means there as will go up against Houston obviously you pick in Houston to win that series assuming it comes down to that and the LDS correct yeah yeah but no cakewalk they're not against the as but I have the astros advancing against the how formidable on the Atlanta braves not mean I mean I mean at least in these parts. We talked enough about them. How good is this Atlanta braves team well? If Ronald Kunia junior and Freddy Freeman are completely healthy and they they want to finish the season they are the biggest threat to the dodgers in the National League for me. They're lying is absolutely relentless and with some of the pitching moves they made young and Old Dallas Cycle and the upgrades in their bullpen. I like that team. I don't like it as much as I like the dodgers but they can beat the dodgers with the team. They have right now so the nationals brightest moment was last night because you don't see them beating the dodgers correct I don't because they're going to start on the road. They've already use sure they're they've already Strasbourg people. They can get them back in time. I just don't think they held it too. I was worried shows a look tied at the floor four. Oh five in his last night I mean fifteen and won his last pitch and fit then it was I think it was at seventy seven pitches and he looked absolutely gassed. What does that about yeah? He's he's he's been hurt for portions of the year and he's had a little trouble getting that rhythm back in September and now in October and he is so max effort for on every single pitch when everything isn't working properly even he can get in trouble because almost nobody's better than him.

World Series expert picks: Will Red Sox or Dodgers win it all?
"Teams after I saw every one of them playing person Red Sox Astros, Yankees, Indians brewers dodgers and that order. I absolutely think the Boston Red Sox have a better club that the dodgers. And I think they'll win this in six or seven I agree on the six and seven. I don't see us going to sweep like so many people do and part of it is there's not a lot of experience on both sides against you know, the top tier pitching Manny Machado in. Brian dozer have seen Chris sale at ninety seven ninety two and done some damage against them. And the same thing goes with Clayton Kershaw JD Martinez being in the, you know, the front of the order in owning Kershaw relatively in in eleven at bats. Do you sense that the key to the series is the field period? And who could feel out the other team quicker? Well, I think that's part of it. But in a short series in for me in any any series. It's about the pitching in. I am concerned about Chris sale. I'm not as concerned anymore. As much as I was about Kershaw. He's got the Kershaw. Although he's more of a craftsman. Now, you've got three lefties going for the dodgers you got to in the rotation going for the Red Sox. I'll take my chances with the right handed hitting Boston Red Sox against those three lefties. I think that could be a big big advantage when you are looking at a JD Martinez in the middle of the order, Mookie Betts, Bogaerts Nunez, those guys that hit from the right side. I think they're going to do some damage in Fenway. I think it's gonna be a different game in LA. You know, I I worry about them pitching to die like, Cody Bellinger. For example. I think he had to keep the ball up on him. He's an uppercut swinger. You put the ball down. You may never see it again. I think these are pretty quick pitchers at I think the way they pitched the opposition is going. Is going to determine who winces, and that's not a genius comment. Are they it's all about the pitching, no doubt? And I think the way that the the Red Sox has set it up where they have Chris sale going game one David price game two, and then the unknown so ripper Selo and Nathanael have all the will be coming out of the pen in the first game or two depending on what goes on in. Do you sense it they're they're protecting themselves from a a short start from occur sailing game one? Right. I think that's exactly what they're doing. I don't think I would even though they did it all year long. I don't think I would pick up these back to back. I think they are doing it. Look, I think Alex Cora was the manager of the year. He and bo-, you know, bowl mill with the athletics. I don't say anything that guy does. But sale, you know, just coming back from the hospital probably lost a couple pounds said he couldn't afford to lose place at the game of his life. Can he do twice in a row? I think that can that's why I think the Red Sox are a little bit better team at this point of the year much better during the season. But you know, you gotta give credit for the dodgers. They scrapped themselves back into this. They one and I give him credit. I just don't think I think they're going to get get up managed. I think Alex Cora and the Red Sox front office is gonna do the job. A former staffer the Astros and Mariners currently with clubhouse corner dot com is kind enough to join us here. Cambio tonight. Drew harvard. Kevin Franson, we are previewing Dame one of the World Series tomorrow night at Fenway Red Sox dodgers Clayton Kershaw. Chris sale. We've been talking about the pitching birdie. I do want to get more into the offense on both of these teams. We're talking about a dodger team who set their franchise record two hundred and thirty four home runs this year. And then he had the Red Sox knocked around. The Astros was twenty nine runs in five games. Jackie Bradley, jR, driving and nine in the AFC. Yes. So tell me about the offense for both of these teams. And really who do you think has the biggest advantage? But I still think it's the Red Sox the wildcard for me could be mad Kemp he won't be starting at D H. They have to of course, and us mad count in their order in the middle of the order behind Machado and in front of Brian dosier. They're using dosier as well. It's mad Kemp that kind of scares me on the Red Sox. He's the great unknown. He can hit the gaps. He can hit the ball over the played as well rested. He had a terrific first-half tailed off in the second half. He's the guy that when you put put all the chips down now Matt Kemp may pick him up. So he's a guy that scares me in the line. David freezes quietly under the radar. They have some weapons. No question. We all know what Justin Turner can do we've seen. What Chris Taylor can do. This is a very very good club. You've got a pitch to bell. And you're like I said they've got to keep the ball up. The bed is is make them swing at it. Get away from the uppercut swing. Yes. Of course is dangerous. But on the other side of the ball, Mookie Betts. You know, Mookie Betts when I saw him first off in the Arizona fall league. He was playing second base. He was far enough of the best athlete in the air that year. This guy makes things happen. Then he's followed by Benintendi. And granted he's a left-handed hitter. But he can smack the ball, and how do you pitch to JD? So I think these are very well balanced teams. But I think pitching and Fenway is going to be a little bit too much for the dodgers. And I think they're going to lose at Fenway, maybe two games. And then we'll see what happens from there. Yeah. I think it's huge. If you know, especially the the Red Sox hold serve then they can play around a little bit not play around. But having Mookie come in and not really be afraid of like he's going to cost us. Oh, no. Because when he was there this year and even in the past that you could play. Yes. So much range. We all know that. No question about it holiday. Would you like to pick up a Nathan? The scrapping. You know? How would you like to have a number three starter name Nathan Valdez control the ball a hundred miles an hour who the dodgers had at one point. And now he may win a game against you. I mean, there's so many corks to this when you can get a guy like a ball deep during the season as your number three starter. You know, I just love it. I love it for both teams Verney who's your who's the guy you worry about more at the back end. Is it kenley or kimbrel kimbrel against this team? By the way, one for thirty one guys that are on the in the lineup for the dodgers won for thirty one against him. Well, I would never ever say a bad word about kenley Jansen. Is on his game right now. He scares me. But the Red Sox may put these away before its time believe me, and if they can then kenley Jansen if they can't then kenley Jansen is to be reckoned with the guy is still great. I feel sorry for what he's dealing with. And I think he's gritty gutsy, but you know, kimbrough's no slouch either both. These bullpens are really really strong. These are these are two good teams. I don't think they're the best two teams. I think these are two good teams. What's your thoughts on Manny Machado? And just the way he's been pretty demoss postseason. I am old school my friends. It made me sick to my stomach to see what he did it at first base. Tasers secular. It makes me sick to my stomach to see him going into second day slake that and I think the thing that made me the sickest is when you say hustling is not my Cup of tea on a scout, my friends and the first thing that we fill in. There's three things can this guy play is he better than what we have. And number three. Can you play for us? And for me on my form. No he cannot play for us. There are teams that would love to have him though. Run to him. That's fine. You put that guy in the mid west or in some cities, you put them in San Francisco and watching my hustle watch. What happens for me? It's a way over the top. I didn't like it. I don't like it. And I think it's going to hurt him. I I. I think the one team that everyone talked about is the Phillies in him going to I'm calling because out here. He he killed. Yeah. Try this or New York or any other big market that he's projected to go. What do you think is agents said the reaction of his agent when he read those comments, please. You just saw it. You saw him hustle. You saw last game. He played hustling kept his mouth shut. But you know, what damage is done. He is not the type of guy that I think is gonna win you the pennant. I like us a scrapper much more. Yeah. You can knock the fence down. But you know, it's not all about him. You give me a Justin Turner any day of the week. I'll take that Bernie. I think I'm sorry. Go ahead. Why don't you finish your thought? Go ahead. I think in general this dodgers team is a little bit over the over the top for me. I think pointing to your muscles rounding, you know, your home run your home run trots a bit over the top for me. I was just curious on how fast that switch is flipped when you see a guy like minimum Chato acting this way because we see a pro sports, Bernie talent will usually Trump everything else. Yes it well. And that's why I said there are teams that are going to run to them they wanna badly and again for the clubs that I was with with the Houston Astros with the Seattle Mariners. I don't think we would have taken that type of demonstrative behavior. But the game has changed and you either love it or or get out of it and don't pay any attention. I happen to love it. But I don't have to like what I see from some players believe me ninety nine percent of these guys are much different. They're wonderful guys. And all it takes one guy to show off like that. And give other people a bad name. I didn't like it. I guess that clear. Hey, we got you a prediction with the Red Sox in either six or seven but tomorrow night who is your guy is it sale is occurs show. Or is it somebody else? No Kershaw gets game one. I think Kershaw is pitching very well. I worry about sale I worry about about the hospital the stomach. I don't know if he's less weight. I haven't seen him.

"Soldier story. Oh, yeah. Do man. Tau Kalugin grad. Talking about a movie, a movie, we'll we'll put gene on it. Seen it. All right. Got the DVD. Oh, that one. When kenley Jansen was not. It was not the guy he was. It's believable. I love that. Come in in the eighth. You gotta leave him out. We were pitch away last night from him coming in the eighth. That's okay. Everyone's a pitch away from giving up a home run. I don't mind that that's the general comfortable with what Kim I it was doing last night I was comfortable with our lead. Yes, I I was. was comfortable with the comfortable that if you gave up giving up a run or to decision would have been made in might have been. Someone else because we do have somewhat of an embarrassment of riches. But if that ball had gone though now six and five eighty, I believe in Jansen I I am not. I am not afraid of a one run game in ninth. I I'm not afraid of going to road face Milwaukee. I think we have the best team in the National League, and I bet a roster is just as good as any team in nationally that once you get an American Lee, you gonna see sphere my face, right, right now I'm going to brewers Mike thinking five house. He one thing that encouraged me with the guy Jansen last night is although it wasn't a safe situation. Remember key. How many runs that we need? How many are less three or less? All right. Here we go to. Analytic thing. Okay. That's not analytics. It's just a regular step fourteen as backing brother, Babe. Ruth was playing, but. L. z. he did this against the top of the line of one two, three hitters, right? You know what I mean? That was pitchy guy. Kuna was first and then FREDDY, third. And this was second like that was encouraging like this may know scar not afraid of kenley Jansen because here this is the bottom line. Kenley Jansen is either going to be on the mound when they the World Series or he's going to be on the mound when they get eliminated the these are the two, there's no, hey, to try. He's the guy you're going to go as far as he pitches you right. And right now he's pitching pretty well if it's three to two, if it six to two kenley Jansen is gonna pitch that inning and you're gonna live or die with it. That's just the reality of it. There's no changing course at this point. So I'm not scared of him coming into the game, but I don't feel the same way I did when he came in the game year ago. There's a difference between those two things I I would. I would agree with that. You'll get that much out of me, but. And I remember bye. Bye. Man, I would go to the store. Bye as he did put some fear that is, you could go to the store and come back and make a dinner with Pedro buys on the mound. That dude is the slowest ever Mike goodness, but I just I don't know. I don't know if because I'm a Homer or it's just that tries not any, you know, listen, I'm going to tell you this one Modiin. One. I've been a dodger fan for life for life. Lakers dodgers getting with us make because a magic. Yes. I'm not gonna front when I imagine that's when I came on over because magic from Michigan, we gave him. We gave him give you guys. Yes, you're welcome. Take it. Now you go, we'll take magic..

"But here, let's say this scenario presents itself that you have a, you need to win on the last day of the season. So you have to pitch either Kershaw or bueller. Okay. In that game, now you're into the one game playoff and whoever didn't pitch pitches that next one who pitches the back into that game. And especially if it's in Colorado, like you're saying z and you don't have kenley Jansen Nelson, your pitching Rogers guy would or somebody like that and now you have nobody at the back end. It's it's, that's the worst case is a dicey scenario. Obviously, best-case scenarios that you're up ten zero, you don't really care who's close as Canaries. You don't have to play in that game best-case scenarios that Colorado gets eliminated and that they're not a factor. Any stage of the playoffs for the if you're kenley Jansen. But I feel is they've. The one thing you don't want to do is take a young player like dealer and put him in a that much of unfamiliar situation with that much on the line I will. I would much rather start him and that one game series as opposed to have them close out that one hour is that way he has room for error and zag, and it's a release more familiar with. I agree with all of that. I'd rather have him in that scenario, but I also come back to this that if I have to get three outs and I don't have any good options, I want the guy with the best stuff. I want the guy that has the chance to go out there and just throw it by everybody. And he's the one guy on that team that I can do that say about our pitching situation, nothing good at that. We haven't even mentioned the number to the Detroit Tigers. What do you mean? Our? Oh, here you go. Childers Here's. he's from, I'm from Detroit. Tigers. I was simply say when it when it comes to the situation with kenley Jansen as pertains to the Colorado Rockies that the best case scenario for us is to go up there this weekend and make you so that they don't get in make them playing the one game, make them play in a game, and then we're figure out the rest from their lonzo's name was intrigued rumors all summer long did affect him coming season.

Pros that have played in the Little League World Series
"This week, Sunday baseball's actually going to be the little league classic in williamsport, Pennsylvania. We've got the Phillies the Manson, Jess you already there. What are you doing there? So early that you when I talk, I I literally games. I mean, this is this is where at that, but there I'll tell you and I got two boys. I'm a little league coach. I don't know if I should admit that because sometimes if good and bad, but being here we the first opening day, lily World Series got four games, four more tomorrow you on Saturday. And then I'll have a game Sunday prior to our Sunday night game with the Phillies vets. But it's it's cool in the scene here. You'll be here soon BUSTER, but it's it's, it's pretty special. Yeah, you did this game last year? I did not do it. I was on vacation. What's it? Like when you get the big leaguers mixing with a little leaguers. The coolest thing BUSTER in, you know, we, we've seen it only once. You know the cardinals and the pirates here last year and what was really took me aback as expect. Obviously, when the big leaguers get here, the literally will be running up and getting autographs and photos and southeast and Instagram stories and all that. As soon as I remember the cardinals got here first before the pirates and they got off the bus and they were going after because they'd already watched a few of the games. They literally new kids names. You know, Carlos Martinez had some kids internationally that he like. I think it was a catcher Venezuela that he was like, totally adamant. I need to find this kid. I want my photo. Can I get your picture? Got his autograph, and it was so genuine. And this is before the cameras were even on them, or I mean, these big leaguers were fans of these kids. And to me, that's what makes us special is I think we only a bit of a reminder of like why the game of baseball is really played, but especially those guys not to like knock any player by any means, but. I think one hundred sixty two games. You would get it at the grind, but you get here and oh my gosh. Is it exuding up every just pure love for the game? You know, are they that towns and most of them aren't, but oh, they love it and it rubs off and you can tell when the big leaguers get here that there's a little bit of that. Just I remember when I was eleven years old. I remember when I was twelve and you know the stories just come out and it's it's cool and it's important. Along those lines about the players who play in the Little League World series. This week's poll question is who among the alum of the Little League World series, my goodness. There's so many from Chris story. The, you know, the the NHL player who so many current major leaguers Scott Kingery, Michael Conforto in our game or guys who played Little League World series, but who is the best alum of the Little League World series was played in the big leagues in the four choices and believe me. We could have had so many more Todd Frazier, Jason Varitek, Gary Sheffield or Dwight Gooden who would be the best alum of those four. You know, I put Todd Frazier, I voted this week because there's something about him that still just screams little league. I mean, anyone who's ever been around Todd Frazier and BUSTER. I know you know this, you've been around him. I mean, and part of its maybe his size and just as demeanor and the way he acts. I mean, he, he, he's still just has kid and love for the game the way he plays the game. And this is twenty year anniversary of the team that he one Little League World series with with Tom's river New Jersey, and they're all coming back. He's throwing out the first pitch, and I feel like in covering now the Little League World series. My fourth year, those images are the ones that are still
