Starting 9 Episode 126 - Redbirds & Snakes Love

"Ah welcome back to starting nine jal so one twenty six year september september baseball baseball meaningful bay all throw that in there meaningful baseball baseball the red sox are plans to meaningful baseball right now. You're just getting getting back from <hes> the as defeating the angels specifically mike trout sh i'm watching. I got cubs sweeping wrong. Third gain is so high. We'd be like you're you're in. My ear of the microphone sounds like you're one of those like sword guys at the carnival's like they just stick it down their throat. That's what the mike sounds like right now. Great stuck right up every body. Guess jared height five ten so september our baseball. It's here got some good matchups going on. We've got some teams that are still trying to <hes>. Make it into the postseason. I don't know i wasn't completely free as started yet the night that the nationals had their greatest ninth inning comeback in team history to beat the message you by any chance i i'm sure you've seen the highlights but did you catch a live. I catch you life. No yeah i mean i don't even know where to start with yeah. That's so heartbreaking so but how about kurt suzuki so i don't know if you heard we're doing a livestream during this this comeback and <hes> one of the points that i used to hammer home just how devastating of a loss that this truly was. I said not only i mean it's it's one thing if you know once soto tags at three run home run to beat you and the bottom of the ninth against your against your closer that you traded for in the offseason and <hes> but the guy that hit this walk off home run against the mets he was dallas. Braden's primary catcher and in dallas braden has been doing a podcast for this company for the last three years just to put in perspective just how improbable this comeback was. It wasn't just it's the greatest comeback in the history of of the nationals franchise in the worst comeback <hes> in the worst thing explosion for the mets this was you you put together all the factors and it how embarrassing yeah it's it's not a it's not a great look kurt suzuki. God bless bless him. I've always said he's he's <hes> he's primed for the big moment because he's just he's a. He's a grinder corrobos. This is a guy who if you rewind the tape walked on at fullerton went to one of the nation's most prestigious baseball powerhouses and and said hey you see these arms. I know i looked like a t rex. You know what that means. I can get to the heater in. Let's go one of the hardest it's working dudes i've ever been around and that is in all seriousness and being completely and totally genuine so it just it really did tickled taint to see currency zouqi. Come up in that spot and come through un booking believable you guarantee. The entire chain of those islands arabas brought up. We're fucking lose it. You want test inside travis. Many i mean he's still like he's having a pretty good season the he's he's doing it dude. He's he's an and this is like. I'm being unserious. Dude is he's durable because he has been taking care of his body on a level that you would probably start partic- veterans pay attention to when they start to break down. He was ahead of the game early on like i can remember because i was i was early to the field not terribly early but early to where you notice when other guys that start to roll in he was he had already gotten to meals in at the yard like just prepping and and it was one of those things and just to kinda give you some insight when i got called up our rookie year <hes> i i had been up and down up and down up and down while i was up when he got called up and there were some fucking super vets on the pitching staff at that that time joe blanton den hair i mean they're they're you know some older guys in the bullpen and they weren't necessarily comfortable because they didn't know kirk on the level that maybe i did so we were able to kind of be a sounding board for each other. I was able to kinda help him now just hey. This is what i think. These these guys are expecting abbas. It was a great it was a it was a great front row seat to have to watch him. Come up and now see what he's done. Yeah no it's yes <hes> quite the career <hes> but it's it's also been quite the season for the mets and <hes> we are we ready to pronounce their twenty one thousand nine hundred nine season as as dead and four and a half back <hes> but you've got the brewers phillies the d-backs the cubs all ahead of them for that second wildcard spot here on september fifth i think i think it's probably time to to lay it it down. I don't i don't know that it was it look. It was really exciting when they went on that stretch. What was it for two weeks three weeks. Yeah that was super exciting. That was awesome earrings. You're excited because look they just acquire stroh right like it's. It's this this whole like like. Don't sleep on us. We're coming mentality and i'm all for it. I just didn't i don't i wasn't completely sold or convinced that it was now that that was a reality and you know here we are here are iriarte. It's it's it's a bucket tough spot man. It's it's a tough role but look. Where do they sit right now. Four and a half i mean i don't know who will look the phillies. They lost today. Did they not phillies <hes> <hes> who they beat the reds. Maybe no. I think the phillies loeser did they win. <hes> check that the phillies threats today. The phillies lost to the reds in eleven minutes. Yeah fuck phillies lost to the phillies to the reds so i don't know i don't i know that anybody is is just sort of you know taking it away now from the new york mets you know what i mean. I i it kind kind of feels like people are well. Hold on other than maybe the new york mets yeah like the mets. Are you know it's it's is not that they're they're just totally fucking teams any teams out of this dimension. They messed up. It's it's it is a situation where under different circumstances maybe we're talking about wildcard four and a half back sure that's that's not the the worst place to be in four and a half. I love to be four and a half but you get the brewers. You got the phillies. You've got the d backs who came out of no by the way shout the d-backs fucking they trade their best pitcher more on the d backs later later but you trade your best pitcher and you are knocking on the door the chicago cubs for that second wildcard spot near the only team ahead of them right now d-backs <hes> out of those wildcard teams have a plus seventy nine run differential and which is exactly what the cubs had coming into play on thursday night so we give it anybody already given anybody behind behind the chicago cubs right now the way that they are giving them a re giving anybody a shot. Honestly i feel like we should consider the deepak. I mean because does look fucking clocks ticket pal as you and i sit here in jab our jaws. It's it's september fifth fifth. I mean the clock is ticking oxy just over three weeks away. Do you think that there's a point in time. I mean i. I feel like that's a there's got. There's got to be a skid. We're talking to sweep probably involves somewhere for the chicago cubs in order for the d backs to overtake them <hes>. I don't know that that's something i see see in the schedule for the chicago cubs in three games three games and that's the only team ahead of them like that could have the three weeks is a long time time to maintain three games in the phillies right there. Let's not discount the phillies but that could take over that second wildcard spot. I'm going to say that it is the criminally underrated arizona diamondbacks. I mean there between them and them in the phillies phillies. We're we're we're considering a reporting the billy's in the brewers in the same boat <hes> because we're doing that then you have to almost like i said you have to almost consider the mets as well because it's really only a game that would separate philly and new york and so that gets stuck at bats <hes>. I love it too big time cluster fuck. I mean one bad had week and we're talking about how how the brewers are right up the cubs. I mean like this series. We're taught that week. We're talking about how the brewers are in end of first wildcard spot and the book and nats what happened up. The cubs can miss the playoffs entirely yeah. It's absolute insanity hannity. That's why i mean look storyline for the chicago. Cubs has been what the starting pitching has been darvish right. That's that's they continue to roll i again. I feel like i feel like it's going to be very interesting between the chicago cubs and arizona indictment backs to your point rolling down the line. I just mean the race is exciting is a racist going right now. Yeah i mean this is what happened last year. Everyone everyone slept on the brewers then bam. They slapped everyone in the face and then they had the best record in the national league win the division in the last day of the season but this four-game series right now cubs brewers a lot can change things if we can wake up on monday and be having a completely different conversation about the nationally wildcard picture which obviously i've said this before. I think i said this last year. I'm rooting for the brewers obviously rooting for the red sox obviously but the one thing that i root for above all else this time of year september is chaos. That's what i root for. Oh we will get it. Give me 163 163 directly into the jugular wanted. My things i wanted in my fucking. Jugular gave me a one game playoff to determine determine the one game playoff. This was j hayes idea and he's here for this which is really unfortunate is really unfortunate. We just have to use defacto rules so let's just let's just explain what's going on here. So so jay came up with the home run champion challenge between us three myself dallas brayden justin havens we each pick one player could be trout could be alonzo so could be bellinger could be yeli as the rules state the losers plural. There's only one winner to losers. I'll be me the losers have to do. A one page book report that will be read on the podcasts on the hometown team of the winner as if dallas's player ends up winning with the most home runs than me and jay have to do a book report on oakland the city yes if multiple players ended up with fifty plus home runs the person who's player does not end up with fifty has to the report by themselves so me and you both pick guys who end up with fifty home runs in j hayes hits forty eight the j. has to do the book report and he asked to read. It aloud allowed for the class for everyone to hear yes. I am fucking into that well so i'll go first. Pick my guy because is it's it's kind of. It's kind of poetic justice to be totally honest because it is because this is a guy. I think you probably know llewellyn with your lawn. You know it you know it gives you the pocket polar bear you know it as i threw it out there. In the universe jeered he just starts dropping that big old polar bear diesel all over the place yeah so i'm going pedro lonzo. Why take a look at that schedule. Jerry hayes under the from the dominican to the united united states pedro. That's a that's a peter and spanish yup so oh pedro lonzo is going to to colorado during and i've got i've got pete alonzo catching fire in colorado three homers and four games james dan. That's actually a great pick okay so here's the deal. I think that there should be a caveat to this all lulu but you're caveat caveat is gonna be caveat. All three of our selections hit fifty home runs then bottom man has to do the book report on the other two who ultimately the loser period yeah yeah there there there will be a definitive winner that will be me definitive loser user whoever that will be between you. J. say we all get fifty begin. Pedro lonzo probably dare i get crazy. I'd say fifty three homers. I mean it could happen. I don't even know i haven't even done that. Matt was just right off the cuff very yeah. I'm into that. I'm down with that. J you agree. I agree perfect perfect. He saw easy to work with us. Yeah the greatest easily one of the top one thousand producers. I have ever come across a hundred percent. He knows no question <hes> my pick homered today actually diddy diddy louise going. Oh oh how convenient i got the second pick i mean it's not the best spot to pick from. I mean i feel like you knew where i was going so you actually you had the best player in baseball when right and you're fucking listen. Listen listen dallas. I got the second pick which which puts me in a it's. It's not in the best a spot in the draft. I mean not technically if you're not selected i but considering the crop left. I feeling decent spot yeah so i'm gonna i guess i guess i'll go with my trout. Oh hey oh all easy. Go on my child from my pick edgy super edgy. Do you think we should we should probably pick. I mean bellinger has forty four. Ya alex has forty-three. Which one do you think jay would pick prolly bellinger back stuff with yelich yeah. How about. I feel like he would probably pick bell next kappler. Yeah i was thinking david fletcher. Let your if yeah more on him later <hes> yeah i i think belly house bilger sound j. perfect fucking guy. His enthusiasm is tremendous. That's what gets us up in the morning. So you have pedro lonzo. They drill lonzo. I have michael. J. has selected cody bellinger so as of right now as of this recording forty four for bellinger forty-five for trout forty five for lonzo. Oh aw so it's on the home run. Champion challenge is in full effect. Yes it is you know who else was in full effect yard. I was at the redbirds yeah are are. Are you kidding me. We may we may be guilty of. We may be guilty of not paying too close. You know what hold on. I'm going to have to rewind that because i gave somebody on the redbirds cap. Maybe not the whole club so yes guilty as charged but it did pay a little attention to a fella chicken the pill till in the slab silent up on meal nipple if you will for the redbirds let as a club twenty and five over the last twenty five it's been quite the run has an incredible crops and maybe we haven't given them their their just desserts so i feel like this is a time for us to do so yeah colton wong starting nine alumni i brought a he's hitting a cool five hundred with a fourteen seven seven opium over his last eight games. Is that all he's fourteen for twenty. The eight three doubles three triples a homer. He's knocked in seven runs but over the last eight games for the redbirds sent them up to the plate half the time is getting you knock well. It's it's really cool to warm. It is really about and he's not. He's not the only one if we're being completely honest. It's really about a tale of two halves. You take a look at what he's done on in the second half compared to what he's done in the first after first-half. Here's splits to forty four batting average wjr o._b. P. three twenty seven three seventy six slug for an p._s. Of seven zero three not good second half. Let's turn the fucking heat up three seventy four forty six five thirty four slug for a nine eighty one o p._s. In the second half so it's about turning up turning it on and really never looking back and that's what colton one cold one has been able to do in the second half. It's also the pitching staff. You're in the pitching staff which trees given love to. We have some young guys. That's that's the key for me is a couple of the starters right. We've talked about flirty already dakota hudson not he gave up eight homers in the first five starts of the season then over the next ten <unk> settled down and during that ten start stretch. I think only one home two point eight three team was seventy three not only has to stop started to really develop an ace inflationary but some of the you know him and hudson have kind of hunker down as some young guys in the rotation and nicholas looked get off my mound fucking a get my just oh my god you're i. I tried to watch shit. I kept i kept passing out because all the blood kep rushing to my nether region. It was incredible. I oh aw fuck love it. Just give it to me on loop cato walk four point nine six that leads the staff. He's also got the lowest walker nine one one point four second-lowest whip on the team and fifth. He's been good the last two three times out. I believe these guys are a big part of wipe. Cardinals are able to have been able to go on this run. Along with <unk> long has done. You need somebody to kind of lead. That charge orange cool warm sounds like he's that guy right now. So since august ninth almost a month saint louis louis cardinals have won twenty one out of twenty seven entering play on thursday. Only the braves had a better winning percentage but the cardinals have still they've played four games so the cardinals have gone on a run here but looking at their schedule they still we'll have let's see we got a big series here at wrigley a four gamer the nineteenth to the twenty second four wrigley and they close out their season with three games against the cubs at at home so for as great as the cardinals have performed over the last month here and that was after i think they have lost five straight great before going on the run that they're currently on. They lose five straight. They go on this run there. In first place they still have a four gamer in chicago ago and they close out their season with three against the cubs talk about rooting for chaos. I don't think that it's appropriate to close the book on the cubs potentially still winning the division here because of the seven games still remaining over the next three weeks here including the last three games of the season well. Yes no you're right. You're right shit can get very interesting. One of the things that i think that does need to be noted again with the cardinals is how how the emergence of carlos martinez and the the fulfilling of a role sorely needed in bullpens. Oh pins has also allowed. The emergence of giovanni guy goes to take place. That's a yeah right. That's that's a. That's a big deal man. That is a big deal especially heading into these types of leverage series <unk> as you have pointed out. You've got the you've got the ability to really impact your destiny to our to really control your own destiny here and we all know oh how important locking up innings seven eight nine can be yeah. That's a big deal. That's on the table dallas so the cardinals finished this thing <music> out do the saint louis cardinals win the n._l. Central in twenty nine thousand nine. I got a three piece piece right now over the cubs. They got four <hes>. No cubs brewers right now four gamer no i'm saying the yankee bleed yet through aziz over the cops. Yeah you'd think finish it out yes yes. It's crazy the the articles in the cubs the cardinals and the cubs right now as we are speaking have an identical run differential identical plus seventy nine for each. They're both very good playing at home and they still have seven games head to head. Had i mean if there if there's a division race that no one's talking talking about that they should be. It's it's this n._f._l. Central race here because <hes> don't account and kind of our wildcard spot but now i believe the end don't to cut the cubs had the season advantage over the cardinals too don't they. I believe they do the cubs do over the cardinals. Yes yes yes yes right. That's what does yeah yeah so yeah. I'm i'm <music>. I'm saying that knowing that maybe the cubs or excuse me. Maybe the cardinals haven't played their best baseball against the cubs so yes yes. I feel like they hold on and i do. I genuinely mean what i said about <hes> armar and giovanni kind of you know nail down some spots in that bullpen that is important so nuts on the table absolutely do not get fucking nuts cut off you to that's on table. Dallas braden still has the saint louis cardinals closing out the division you know what dallas would you got you are a- are you thinking about say right. Now you know dallas in the rear view mirror off jared rippin aveer view mirror rob told you that i think the cubs still win. The division your bucket higher than i am. I think the chicago cubs win the central role by one game. Stop it i do i do. I got the cubs in this division. I mean a lot can change with this series series with the brewers i mean the brewers are kind of like <hes> they. They know what's at stake here. They know their postseason hopes could live or die on this one series here against <hes> against the cubs at miller park but the way that cue is pitched over the last month or so. He's been one of the best pitchers in baseball not just the national league q. who has been unbelievable. I think i think the cubs still win. The division dallas not happening not happening. I know flip. Flirty flirty is not happening. He's been he's been fucking unbelievable. Do you wanna talk about second half. Go go take a look at that dude's second-half you wanna talk about a tale of two halves stirred. Oh shit oh. Oh shit like like he is it. It's really it's really on another level <hes>. I believe he's got an e._r._a. Under one in the second can half. I believe he had an e._r. A north of four and a half in the first half if i'm not mistaken bad i also i also believe he had <hes> his whip was north of like one to might have been one three somewhere around there. I believe as it sets right now. He's got a whip under one. It might even be the under point eight. I would yeah i would definitely take the under armour being on her. What he's he's been like a top five definitely top ten but maybe like six seventy avenue district. Yes he okay here. Look i i was. I was looking at this dude up the other day so i just wanted to confirm yeah oh eight five e._r._a. <hes> fucking zero oh seven five eight whip in the second half compared to one to to whip in the first half that e._r._a. A four six four for era in the first half yes so again flirty having this shit nicholas. I'm telling you right. Now you run across motherfuckers amount you piss him off. You piss off a wolf pack. You piss off the whole pack. You gotta deal with them. All you gotta deal with them. All feel like if you look at the the twenty nineteen second-half numbers you look at some of the guys that are that are kinda dominating here in the second half florida's right. They're still there. Sarokin has been great all year. It's all guys a great all year vera landers sherzer grace florida's right right there. He's bundy's been fucking good. He's been good dallas or looking at bullet good. What else looks good me when i when i get off the phone you do you you g- listen. I've been listening all day today.

That's peleton dot com promo code starting starting right now right right right right. I remember i said we were going to talk about the d backs yeah do that now. Let's do it right. Let's talk about that right now. Because <hes> catala marseille who jay's lovechild they could tell marta. I'm going to tell you right now that might that shocked me when when i found out earlier today it might shock you. It might not be ready for this. I don't know a whole all right it down. What if i told you dallas brayden the ca- tell martin has a higher wins above replacement then christian yelich this year. Would you believe that not right off the no no i would have been completely and totally transparent. You're like i'm bathing in windex. <hes> no yeah so here's the deal right could tell marseils league in hits. We all know that he's got to ball skill. He's he's hitting three twenty eight. That would be a great indicator of that. This is after back to back seasons of hitting to sixty same year and hit fifty nine the year before that so he has a coming into play today thirty one doubles thirty homers leads the league in hits and has wins above replacement fourth and major league baseball. You've got his company might trout cody bellinger. They've been in a league of their own this year and then you've got the bracket of the alex. Bregman could tell martinez as christians christian yelich mattie chapman and anthony rendong that class that's that class right there and and <hes> yeah i in terms of the national league it's bellinger and everyone else but the everyone else conversation begins with cottrell martin martin who obviously isn't going to win a national again b._p. Award i think that bellinger has that wrapped up. No one's gonna complain about that boy but when we're talking about <hes> the m._l._b. I'll be networks special. I don't even know what i mean. There's been years where it's like. Why do we even why do we even have the other guys show up. I mean why why even put them through that <hes> that's going to be another. One of those here. Is everyone knows is going to be traveling bellinger. It's not really competition but they are going to make to other people show up at least from skype position for the m._v._p. Award in the american and national national league's talamante. He's going to be on one of those split screens dallas. He's going to be there. I mean just just to kind of put into perspective the kinda season he's having right now. He has doubled his career high in homer's. He's far surpassed the first four years of his career total in homers this year he has upped his slugging percentage from last year to this year by bernard points opie s well over two hundred points yeah because well over it is over two hundred points. That's the kind of season that he's is running into right now and what's also i mean not a huge difference here five hundred twenty or excuse me five hundred eighty plate appearances last year seventy nine total strikeouts eighty to play as of right now going into said today <hes> seventy nine strike outs so he's going to punch out a little more bill big deal look at the fucking production the the dude is ridiculous and absolutely deserves to be into in in that conversation as you centered. He deserves that love this uh-huh and what are you talking to water escobar right now. <hes> i know lot of like we can do away with the r._b._i. Now oh yeah those folks why because that speech to in in my opinion getting a job done whether it's by virtue of a knock whether it's by virtue as i bore witness just do today a great. I agreed it back to the tune of four straight walks. Thank you anaheim bullpen <hes> or or just a productive about shooting the ball to the right side getting the ball into the outfield either way you are taking advantage of run scoring opportunities ladies that is very necessary and when you have a guy in a line of that can do that consistently he sort of becomes. It's the pivot man meaning. You know that there's going to be action around this dude just because the guys ahead of him are going to get pitched too because they don't want to face him with guys on base. Those guys are able to take advantage of it which it looks like they have because he's been driving in these driven. One hundred you did fuck it runs and we've still got three weeks left in the in in the season so eduardo escobar has been amazing zing for the d backs building off a great year last year. You put him in marseille together this season. That's a big reason why you're starting to see that creep jared while you're assert to see or maybe even hear those v makes up in division or excuse me a ah wildcard now wild dog car five more doubles he needs for thirty thirty and he also has here's the thing is he could already have a thirty thirty season if he wasn't so fucking fast because he has ten triples second in the league behind him in triples yeah yeah. I don't really about that. Well mark partee. We've got nine triples for catala l. Martin love that. There's there's one guy that i wanna talk about that. I'm not going to get into because <hes> for reasons this one guy. I want to highlight yeah. There's one guy. I'm going to be showing some love to later well. I feel like for the cardinal fans you you guys you guys can now politely get off our asks about not showing the end and we deserved. We deserved it. We get it but we are not turning a blind eye to what's going on in that division. We are not turning a blind eye to what you folks are doing out there redbird land so keep chugging. We'll reconvene towards the end of this month because there are going to be some fireworks and for the d backs you folks you should be very excited very very excited about what could lay ahead of you as far as the end of the month is concerned as well lot of as i said impact meaningful baseball games and by the way i don't think we had any complaints about our lack of diamondback discussions. I don't know that there are many diamondback fans out there but if you're out there you're welcome and i look forward to seeing catella mateo on m._v._p. M._v._p. day. I mean it's that's that's going to be a thing that happens. He will be there him and his little split-screen and alec ford and the pretty face but there are there is more debate talk to come. There is before yet. They're gonna talk about black buffalo. This is a product that it <hes> dallas. You know that use got it right here. Bang do big black buffalo guy was. I started dipping black buffalo december. I think it'll be two years. This december big cat turned me onto it. <hes> i started started dipping back in two thousand seven. I even told them. This is because the dustin pedroia here's. I know what you're thinking dallas. You probably think here's a little little guy that i can i can look to here's a little. I want to be like you guys. Were looking up a lot of people <hes> <hes> you look up to everyone actually got to see him. In colorado. It's good catching up with with dustin pedroia but here's here's the thing about black buffalo a dip for ten years and tried to quit multiple times. I was one of those guys that if i was dipping and i quit wait and i was. I was cold turkey for four months. All it took was me seeing someone dipping and i was like fuck. Now i gotta go back on it and i would but now black buffalo. I've tried other alternatives to dip and they only just made me want the real shit more with black buffalo. They've got the nicotine. She's got the burn. It's the browns spit. It's all it packs the same. It tastes the same the whole deal so yeah.

There's something that comes along with the forty man roster that every young <hes> let's say organic loving earthy minor leaguer would appreciate <hes> got it different bandwagon different strokes for different folks dallas yep different different folks by the way i got new penn over the weekend. I was like all right right well. I'm going to <hes>. I'm just gonna you know have a nice little mental vacation this weekend and <hes> it was a little new so so i think it was around like two two o'clock in the morning. Go to throw lipkin. Now's just like i can't feel my face. Hey guys like i got. I got this lip and i was like do i not have enough in and i look in the mirror. It's like this huge fucking and i'm like i just can't straight up can't fill my face so that's how i spent a little. I mean i mean was it was it was it in indika was it i mean it sounds like it was indika yeah. I'm pretty sure it was trash. Actually you when you were new york city you. You never came to the launching pad. Yeah no i i. I didn't get the invite i didn't. I didn't get the invite so soars and you move all weekend. I just had a mental vacation. Station watched a shit ton a baseball <hes> you know i started listening to audio books. That's key words are hard. You know how hard words can be so that's that's why i'll go with the audio books and baseball combo. It's nice. It's just nice are like doc. Having somebody scrub down. It's like a learning sponge bath like you can just sit there and be showered lorde with education. You don't have to do anything. It's kinda like those commercials you remember the the millionaire dude who would just hook up the fucking stem machine into his biceps and it was hooked up to the fucking huge jacked bodybuilder who was over there working out. This guy just continue. I mean yeah. That's what that's like. That's how i spent my weekend just downloading knowledge into my brain dallas good for you i mean i don't know what that retention is. A double digit rates like but it's not high. It's not high but i mean if you if you if you read if you listened to one hundred percent of a book and you retain fifteen percent that's fifteen percent knowledge you didn't didn't have before i couldn't agree could agree more not only is it fifty percent more knowledge. You still have space for more knowledge right so some people don't think about on the back end. They really don't their car. It's called being economic simon. Show them some love. You've got to show them some love jay. You go first this week jay. I couldn't agree more absolutely good lou. I see where you're coming from with that last point wait to honor. That's kind of what drove it home right and i'm glad you mentioned those names because if you didn't nobody else would have you know there's nobody that even even had them on their radar. No <hes> i mentioned this guy sort of ingest <hes> david david fletcher and it's because i had a front row seat to him and it has nothing really to do with numbers it has to do with the impact that i saw him make aac and have on the pitchers that he was facing and then a direct impact on run production for his team and why that's important is because the guy behind him in the lineup has been mike trout and mike trout for a lot of reasons for a lot of people is the guy that you just kind of pitch around on the angels right well. That's not necessarily the true lesser as the new give up five hundred and fifty five foot tanks. Thanks to him look. I told brit bro. You're lucky they built out davis out there zuniga yeah because if not you would probably own funky longest ball ever given up to anybody on planet anybody on a on a planet with gravity you you would you would that record. I'm gonna i'm gonna tax them. Later and i'm going to me i came in. I can relate. I also give up long home runs to perennial all-stars you should you should just send him that video cassette like it just just a followed up with hey man been there they relate but but fletch on top of plane playing a good their base he knows who he is as a player as a hitter at the plate in an era where we're seeing a lot of guys you know seeing a lot of guys tried to maybe be somebody they're not and i get taking advantage of not only the way you're being compensated for that offensive production and really lack of approach but also take advantage of a baseball right now that is i mean it is open season on that baseball and he knows who he is so he's he's not a guy that i think is going to be in the lab this off season looking to see how he can pop thirty five homers. He's a dude who has tremendous back is if not the the hardest. I believe the second tough guy in baseball to punch out like over overly twenty plus game what i looked up. I jason august thirteenth. He's punched out eleven twelve times something like that yeah. That's over. That's that's right at one hundred plate appearances. I i believe just under maybe that's pretty good i just i enjoyed watching him this weekend so yes recency bias but i'm attracted into that grinder to that baseball rat and david fletcher for me coming kind of put that on display this week while that <hes> i got two guys i._t.'s one bold this one i <hes> as smitty would say wilson ramos rambo's will wilson rhinos wilson wilson catcher phillies your backup catcher smitty <hes> god smitty take a seat <hes> a man since august. I wilson renos has started twenty five games. He's appeared in twenty nine games over over that span. He is heading four zero five with a nine eighty five p._s. He has doubled seven times. He's homered three times. In those twenty five starts. He is driven in twenty run. Twenty one runs in. It's a damn shame that <hes> the mets are only three games under five over five hundred during that span because he is absolutely hitting the kiss of the ball last night. I was watching m._l._b. Network gotten alert zach gallon had has flirted with a no hitter in the seventh inning yeah lo no no will no no action happening in the seventh inning. Manny machado ends up ends up breaking it up with <hes> with the little knock to right field. Would've there's a chance he might have gotten thrown out at first base if it wasn't bobbled out there and write a little bit but <hes> this is a guy that sense being traded to the diamond backs from the miami marlins has been great outstanding. Even for the arizona diamondbacks in six starts the d backs. They are five and one. He's got a two to five and he's punched out thirty nine batters in thirty thirty two innings. This includes the the no hit bid from wednesday night zach gallon. Gotta show some love for anyone. Curious love that jay was gonna show love too <hes> adam eaton kyle seager and andrew heaney kyle seager wasn't either one that that viral clip of him ducking for the from that curve ball that ended up being a strike. Yes cal seger bigger great. Hey dirty dirty dirty dirty. The only thing that was the only thing that was embarrassing harassing about that clip wasn't the fact that he ducked. It was the fact that he tried to argue it after he was like no. There's no way that was a strong. It's like i you gotta probably go upstairs to check that tape and come back at apologize later. You gotta you gotta. Just take that al and keep it moving. It's bad book final thoughts. Dallas brayden a final thoughts. You know i don't i don't necessarily have any final thoughts right now. Why because i i don't wanna i don't wanna beat a dead horse. I do feel like you're about to though do shaab what whoa. What's that feel like you're about to no. No no no no no no no. No no no. It's not it's not in my nature nature. I know look we're. We're all excited about september well. The majority of us are excited about september. I'm pretty excited and i thought i'm i mean you should be. You should be where the milwaukee brewers are out right now. They are hanging on jared. They are hanging on and it's rarely four games could feel like a lot more right. Is that fair to say. Four games could feel like a lot more. You're the milwaukee walkie brewers like. Could you imagine sitting in a like five and a half. Maybe even six game out kind of the that would be. That's not good not good. <hes> wouldn't be great so it wouldn't be best. No there's probably better is probably better days so i would again. I implore folks. Thanks to really dive in to the n._l. Wild card race really dive into that because that's where the fun is going to be. That's it's where the fun is going to be if you don't have you don't have a horse in the race. <hes> baby get one. Maybe maybe maybe maybe jump onto. Somebody's wagging because again. I think the best we can really hope for in the american league at this point is <hes> is probably a game 163 between either oakland tampa bay or cleveland. I mean the red sox. Could i don't think i don't think and also also jeered. I heard talk about the minnesota twins. I wanted to bring this up. I wanted to bring this up because i was. I was told that this just wasn't going to happen. The minnesota twins. I have started to create that separation again. They've started to create that separation again and i don't know that they're looking back so i didn't want a we're not at full strength here you know because i'd like to stick that in a little deeper and twisted a little harder. If there was somebody's guts i knew i was going to be ripped but out on the other side but again be dead horses beaten them. I mean the the as in razor in a deadlock right now. The american league wild-card the indians find themselves a game out right now and then you've got the red sox who are right there. Yeah yeah right there. I don't. I don't know if you i don't know if i forget. Where did i not sure where i say this on the podcast guest on the podcast but i i actually i say this all. I said this on the broadcast that's right the oakland a.'s broadcast broadcast and i likened the red sox jared to a to a foul smell emanating from the basement. I say you you had this twitter account that like documents all of your quotes now so i saw the quote on twitter. I didn't hear it on the broadcast. You're so it is it's it's it's it's extremely it could be pungent at times. If you get that that that waft you know but it feels like eventually. It's probably just going to die out. It's probably you're probably come <hes> across that carcass somewhere the dead of winter in realized that it's just a just a shriveled up shell of itself. You know what it sucks is. <hes> look the red sox. Precede say aw is only is it was a basis loaded singled. Sorry there's two outs. It's only one run. I thought that was going to be way worse than it was <hes> but the red red sox have the exact same run differential as the cleveland indians. They have a better run differential than the tampa bay rays days and i'm pretty sure they have a comparable run differential to the first place atlanta braves there plus ninety eight the red sox plus ninety five raise plus ninety one so it's like braves in there yeah the atlanta braves are in first place and they have operable run differential the red sox. I'm just saying you know here's my point service. The watermelon final thought that the group should be in the play offs. I will be filing an appeal jeep. Ezekiel is yet to be in the fucking playoffs and the red sox the fuck in the third best offense in baseball -aseball and they might not make it for shame rob manfred what type of little league carnival ash show are you running here where the red sox run the risk of making the postseason. That's all i gotta say that's it. That's all thoughts. That's it so ah y'all <music> <music>.

"Thank you for listening to this. Podcast one production now available on spotify apple podcasts. Podcast one dot com in anywhere else. You podcasts calling off leaks I'm Kevin McHale quits. We became best friends on the set of Glee. And now we're doing the glee recap podcast. You have been waiting for romantic each week. We'll take you behind the scenes. Still all the glee and breakdown episodes from season one with former cast crew producers and writers that brought the show life. I think everyone needs a little more tardy and their lives. Get new episodes of showman's every Thursday on spotify apple podcasts and podcasts one dot com and now here he is sitting in for Ridge. Keller storylines developing today out of what you heard in the open. Why talk about twenty four to forty eight hours? I guess what I'm failing to appreciate is that players are coming into camping. Availabilities happening days part as pitchers and catchers reported earlier this week position players reporting as we get into the weekend at the beginning of next week so on two fronts so let me cover on both in the conversation that centers around the Houston Astros and cheating cheating the game with their signs stealing program that was in place. Kurt Suzuki of the Washington nationals. Remember the nets beat the Astros in the world series? The question was to Kurt Suzuki where the Astros still cheating last year's world series quote. Oh yeah no question. Sukey says we could hear it from their dugout. We heard they're whistling. What are you to do and he said they would go to the ballpark early. Trying to figure out ways to disseminate when the science schilling was going on so that they could change. And you know mix it up so that they weren't be that they weren't being stolen so the story then coming out of Glendale Arizona today from Jorges Casteel Staff Writer for the La Times. This is on cody. Bellinger bellinger talking about the disappointment and the anger. The dodgers players have quote. I thought Manfred punishment was week giving them immunity talking about players. I mean these guys were cheating for three years. I think what people don't realize. Is Jose Altuve a stolen? Mvp from the Yankees. Aaron judge in two thousand seventeen. Everyone knows they stole a ring from us asked if they were cheating beyond two thousand seventeen bellinger said quote. I mean one hundred percent. I don't know why they would stop then asked about when Jose altuve eight rounds third base on a game seven. Al CS walk off home run against the Yankees the pushes the astros end of the world. Series bellinger says about that moment. That Al Tuba his covering up his Jersey telling his teammates. Leave my Jersey alone when I get home plate quote bellinger? I don't know what human hits a walk off home run against Aroldis Chapman to send your team to the world series and one has the thought to say. Don't rip my Jersey off but to go to the tunnel. Change Your Shirt. Thank them out and do an interview that makes no sense to me makes zero sense and quote. This story is not done. I don't know what more baseball will do. These are salacious quote quotes Soundbites headline stealing moments. But I don't know if baseball will do more. They've already investigated all of this and said this is what we're doing. Nothing more to see or talk about here so this kind of goes back to yesterday's comments. He's Major League Baseball and ROB Manfred prepared to ride out the storm and are these short lived stormy seas or will have more shelf life than I've been thinking. Welcome into the rich. Eisen show on. Mike. Keller we our guest hosting when I say we to my right. That's your left his name. Is Amman Green? Hello how're you doing? Good to my life. That would be the you're right. That's John Audience Hinge on it fellas. What's up can we talk about this? Bellenger thing because I love that cody. Bellinger is coming out swinging here at Spring Training. Understand that the there are three ball clubs that are really swinging a Yankees doing it yesterday. Dodgers doing it today. Washington nationals all three on the receiving end of head to head competition in the postseason with the Astros. And here's why because I think for some sports fans are like okay they cheated. They had their little press conferences. They said they're sorry. They've got their world series ring. What's next like a lot of people have said okay? Well what else are we supposed to do here? The punishments have been handed out. No players got punished. What what's okay. It's over right. Isn't it over the bellinger's like no it's not over? They cost us a world series ring. I love it. He's like we don't understand like if you're a player and you felt like you've got robbed you're going to go out in some people say he's crying or no. I love that he's doing this man. He saying Mel Blanc that they cheated. This is a big deal. A world like legacy questions. The reason you'd want to play the game to get the ring. You may only have one opportunity and that was taken like this is a huge deal like I love that. He's he's like trying to you. Know Bang it into our heads like guys this fans this is this is enormous and I i. I understand where he's coming from. I get it and it goes on top of like. There's no punishment right now. And we don't know if that's going to change but there's no punishment to the players in this situation and organization and Managers coaches overall. So that is another say thorn in the side of all these three teams basically right so so let me let me pull it back. Let me ask the cody. Bellinger question did players deserve to be disciplined suspended. Whatever that punishment was going to be is bellinger accurate as some other players already said that the players not being punished for this was wrong. Should Rob Manfred have doled out punishment differently because really the punishment here significant to the Houston Astros their GM and their manager were both suspended for a year and then afterwards fired a departing player? Carlos Beltran was hired as the New York mets manager and fired before he managed a single workout should rob. Manfred have doled out punishment to the players involved and named names in the MLB release on this. Listen the question. That cody bellinger is saying that. They all got off light balance. You're saying why aren't names named and why? Why weren't players disciplined find suspended? Whatever it was I should have been at least some fines in this situation being aware and in partaking in it could mount you gain you reward you with some fines. Agassi that as a fair assessment for these players. Move on these. They got something going on because for three teams here or there will be like you know owners got something management. Guy Something now. The players there were aware and took advantage of this. Need to have a merit demerit dome merit in this situation. And what are you supposed to do that? Like if you start suspending I get why maybe players weren't suspended. Suspend like the whole team. They're going to have a roster how they're gonNA play like. How many games are they gonNA miss like? It's and it's difficult to try to that the League's issue in not no. Let's say let's say the League okay. So here's what the League didn't do. They didn't name names other than Carlos. Beltran who was no longer a player so now I don't you can go through and and you can. You can name names have you want. I mean Jose Altuve Bay is is at the forefront of this. You can talk about George Springer you. I don't know where you want it to go from a naming name standpoint but did baseball protect the player for the wrong reasons should baseball of said. Listen this was a full on scandal. A full on system that was put into place by the Houston Astros from as we found out from twenty seventeen through the twenty nine thousand nine season these players were front and center in the conversation and each of these players is going to be suspended for eighty games half a season. Listen if they're if they're found guilty on PD's and it's the second violation first violation is often. I'll look up because it's changed over the course of time but first second third violation. This is just as now. It's not the same as gambling because every clubhouse has gambling on any game is a lifelong banned from the game. Ask Pete rose So would this be in play. Should the players have received the same penalty as the GM and the manager Lou now and AJ Hinch in Houston who then the team owner decided to fire them but they were suspended for a year? Should the players have gotten forty games? Eighty Games of full season. So these are these. Are The questions some games and a firing now's Garrett he got suspended and far money taken off. Garrett is six games which isn't half a season but it's whatever. The percentage six sixteen forty percent of the season for that would be Sixty Games in major league baseball parlance exactly so dole out something show and then keep these players accountable moving four then once they pay daytime move on for the fans ship for the teams around the League. Move ON ONCE. The player serve daytime. Yeah I I don't know I mean listen. I think there are a lot of ways to answer this question. Cody bellinger list there. On the receiving end of losses to the Houston Astros. So let's Clayton Kershaw as Clayton. Kershaw gone on public record on this. Because here's a guy I mean. We saw the whistling video today. That's been out there for a while. I think it's at on facebook. The whistling video of a game in which the Astros trail four nothing against Clayton Kershaw and then light him up and went into extra innings and the whistling video would indicate that the signs were were given and stolen and whistled to the hitter before the pitches thrown out there. Dan Patrick Show played that earlier. Today we have it too hard to discern. When you see it it's easier to discern listening only on the radio harder to figure it out right so we're only talking about one year but like bellinger's saint like why would they stop and that whistling video out there. Like of course. Of course they did it long. You'd have to think they. Why would they stop doing it? Though here we have the bellinger sound you want here the your sound. I do all right. So here's Let's just listened to cody bellinger. Go off on the Astros. Cut The apologies. Where whatever I thought Jim Cranes was week. I thought Manfred punishment was week given him immunity. I mean these guys are achieved for three years now. I think what people don't realize is out to stolen. Mvp from judge in seventeen. Everyone knows they stole the ring from us. Personally I lost respect for those guys I think I would say everyone in the show in the big leagues lost respect for those guys. I don't know what human hits a walk off home. Run Against Roy Chapman to send your team to the world series and one has thought say my Jersey off but to go in the tunnel. Change your shirt in. Come out into your interview like that. It makes no sense to me makes zero sense to me. Because I know me Gary Sanchez said yesterday. You can rip my shirt off my pants off. I send my world series for all his Chapman and the night at home. You know gone crazy. I'm with him. The evidence on L. Tubay. Although very circumstantial as to whether there was some type of wire or a buzzer there. Him Rounding Third Base in that moment that to me. That's just not human nature in that moment. It's all celebratory every moment of it every step to have the wherewithal to around third base. But you're only doing it. Because he said later that his wife was embarrassed that he had his shirt ripped off previously for that. To Cross your mind in that moment seems so far fetched to me right but if I knew I had a wire there that would buzz on a pitch and I know that if they pull my Jersey off. And there's a there's a wire or a watch or something affixed to to my chest that there's no way to explain it so to me that would be the only way you would around this so circumstantial so CSI. Kinda a made for TV movie. LemMe ask him on. Would you have ever in a big moment in your career? Whether that's a game winning score. Maybe whatever that would be. Would your mind go to something like that? Like altuve eight says his mind went to donate my Jersey off because my wife didn't say so or would you act like cody? Bellinger kind of describes like. Hey I just did this amazing thing. We just want this huge game. I'm not even thinking about stuff like that. It depends on each player. Okay obviously to definitely focus in on that you know. And just circumstantial and allegedly. He had that you know buzz around him or he did remember about what his wife mentioned about him. She herbie and embarrassed would assert coming on. I know how my wife is. She does not want to be seen by anybody else and I told her how the NFL locker is. A locker room is after a game. She's like yeah she's I know I'm like yes. It's the way of the business. The reports come in thirty minutes after a game. And if we're dressed or undressed we're pro so we put a towel on. What have you and she just can't get past. You couldn't get past for the market. We're not to get off the Belgian but this is a whole new topic that I agree with you. How many times have I talked on our The the show. I M Wisconsin. Well that's a tangent I'm is relating to to wire to. They would go to go back to that and his wife. So I'm thinking what the equivalent is green it is the equivalent in the NFC championship. Game urine overtime. And you rip off a fifty five yard game ending overtime touchdown run to go to the Super Bowl for me before you get out of the end zone for you to think to signal the your teammates. Don't rip off my whatever because I might have something there to me. There's no way that thought crosses your mind that your wife or in this case. Jose Altuve as wife doesn't want them to rip is Jersey up not in that moment. A minute later forty-five seconds later. He's rounding third base. That's fourteen seconds ish. After the ball leaves the Ballpark for them to advance to the world series on a walk off at home. I don't see I don't believe it I don't buy I'm not there. I'm with cody bellinger. They're keeping after the fact once. The emotion died now. I'm trying to find my home because I know I probably lost that. I'm crying because I'm going to Subaru and most like NFL uniforms where you can't just rip them off now baseball basketball. Yes you see guys do it at their a big game in NBA. I've seen players Rip Off Jersey and throw him into the crowd because the excitement in an after flags like Oh hold up. I need that Jersey way if I were cheating. And there's evidence under under my helmet or my Jersey that is going to pop into my head very quickly quickly correct. But the pride that my wife doesn't want my helmet or Jersey off in that moment in this case health to doesn't want his Jersey off for that to strike him so quickly and that's the reason I don't buy it and I didn't buy it when he said it I don't buy it now. And knowing what they were doing in two thousand seventeen and knowing that continued to two thousand nineteen. So I'm with cody bellinger on this okay. So looking at at punishments as you brought up so first positive test result of PD's eighty game suspension. Yeah second positive. Test result one hundred sixty two games the entire season and then third lifetime ban from the major league announced it on this. This is to me at least the equivalent of a p e d a positive test and if I were commissioner man for this were balance. You're talking about you. Gave them immunity? Correct to release more information. I mean that is also an investigation that says players aren't GonNa talk unless they get immunity. Do you see you would treat the Astros signed stealing as if those guys took without question if not stronger? So how many is always meant? This always been my opinion they wrote to the AAA AAA team and get get half roster here. So is one sign stealing incident the same guy who did it eight times during the year or a guy who did. It is not detests in the player. Says Yeah just the first time I ever did this. Yeah I mean I under Hong happened. Somebody gets caught cheating of never done that before. Oh Yeah right I mean. That's why there's there has to be a system first second third offensive in this case. What you're saying is the commissioner. Didn't do anything. He gave immunity to the play around. And that is that's a different story and I'm sorry I'm with them and went on. You have to be some type of punishment. It's something that held them accountable. And and put that fear in God of not doing it again. Yeah because you I mean you're the listen. Let's continue on the other side. That's Green John Audiences with me in studio. My Name's Mike Keller. We continue on this conversation. Love to hear from you if you want to dial in or tweet and you can tweet. In Ad Heller sports or at richeisenshow. I'll see that as well.

Remember this storyline debuts with Mike fires becoming a whistle blower turning them in of the the entire concept back on November twelfth. Well here it is on February the Fourteenth Happy Valentine's Day by the way thank you. You're welcome John. You're welcome a month Months Joel Joel. You are welcome as well here. We are plus three months to that and the storyline builds an jumps off the page again over the last few days because this is really the first time the players and managers and other players and other teams are in camp. I it was yesterday with the Houston Astros and their ownership screwing up their press conference the players offering after their team meeting the night before shallow. Very superficial apologies which I think further enraged the teams that were on the receiving end. And now you're hearing it today. It's cody bellinger today. It's Kurt Suzuki's Zucchini with Washington nationals. Bellinger with the dodgers and we heard from Aroldis Chapman and the Yankees in the last air. So now all of the those offended parties those cheated parties have been heard from. So where does it go from here and baseball had to make this a legal argument of which I am not trained in this area but you understand that when baseball pursued this originally they have to legally offer? I would think that this would be legal. Precedent that. The League offered Rob Manfred in their investigation in the conversation with players. They offered immunity now. That immunity isn't just. Hey we're not gonNA do anything with you. That is a signed agreement. That is not that is not players in the investigation. Talking to the Commissioner's Office on verbal immunity. That is on a written immunity right. I mean that's the only way it can be if your members of the Houston Astros in the investigation and talking to the investigators. The only way that happens is not the promise of immunity but actual immunity right so if bellinger says the wire. The player is not penalized in this because in the investigation there was immunity granted and if the immunity is granted. He can't do anything. If the player you're asking for players to open up and be honest share information and if they did under the signed agreement of immunity get penalized them through your so unless you felt like you could get to the heart of the matter with out interviewing or offering immunity. Then maybe couldn't do it. So maybe the League mismanaged this in the investigative phase by offering too much immunity in other words. Maybe they didn't think they could get there and I'm telling you I don't know if they couldn't have gotten there there's enough Transients in the League there's enough player movement up and down people at wash out of the League. Come up all got to the bottom of this without offering immunity and maybe with those who are within the organization. That don't play that you know you could go after them too right so that that is interesting to think about too. But I mean like I said before I feel cody. Bellinger's is talking about because he feels ripped off and he feels like you know his peers got away so the story line as it appears today in the La Times. That story is written by or Hey Castio staff writer for the La Times. He's GonNa join us in about two minutes. So He's front and center on the cody. Bellinger story that story posted. Let's see about Thirty an hour and thirty minutes ago. I Ninety Three Pacific. Time is when it posted so about ninety minutes ago. And the the writer who penned the story Jorges Casteel will join us here in just a moment and I this is to me. This is so fascinating. The entire storyline is fascinating in so many different levels. But before we get there me tell you about Honda. The Rich Eisen show brought to you by the Twenty Twenty. Honda pilot with seating for up to eight and available intelligent traction management. You can haul all your all pros the season so hurry to your local Honda dealer today. Major League Baseball when the start of spring training usually these are just regional pockets stories. What are the dodgers have that they can get back to? And maybe win a world series. What are the national year? After winning the world series. The Astros have fallen short a year ago. What a all. Regional pocketed storylines. Cincinnati Reds have bolstered their entire lineup and added to their payroll almost twice what they did a year ago again. A regional pocket interest story. This story is of everybody's significance and or hey casteel staff writer for the L. A. Times put this story out about ninety minutes ago. Jorges CASTEEL JOINS US on the rich. Eisen show while this is fascinating. Thanks for jumping on On short notice. What's we've listened to the sound of the conversation that you are front and center with with with cody bellinger. What what is the tenor of dodgers camp? Here are they all fired up right now and is it not just limited to cody bellinger and others? I wouldn't say that fired up. I think cody down and do it was the most fired up out of all of them at least two. Us and the media when we're in there for about an hour this morning but Yeah a lot of guys. They're not happy There's no other way to put it on some guys. They're you know they're going public with it. Some guys are more emotional about it But they're not happy it's not GonNa go away You know all about it and it keeps getting extended with what's going on today and how the Astros not really apologizing. So it's I just in turn Earlier reopening stab and it's not going away and they'll have to deal with a lot of people view. The dodgers with the their additions in the off season as as major league. Baseball is favored. The one guy that we're all kind of waiting to see if he'll weigh in on this and I'm curious in your view. Are we going to hear from Clayton? Kershaw on this or will leave it alone. We this morning actually His his comments organizers as Round up he was in his roundup as cody dollar but he had some comments. He basically what he said was. It was hard to process the process. You know industrials have been handling the situation Obviously not happy affected directly By the Astros and what they were doing twenty seventeen in fact we didn't WanNA world series the fact he was pitching at minute maid park and hasn't traveled there and one start but he's not happy Early in the off season. He said he wanted to see more remorse than the Astros Dancers I'm really shown that At least a certain degree so You know he's he wasn't as roundup as cody. But you know these guys aren't happy and Clayton. Kershaw will Dave Roberts and his views on this. He's measured You know obviously disappointed. He's at various points off season. He addresses situation with the media Yesterday he was very measured. This morning. you know the. Dow Back a little bit but because friends. Aj hinch was kind of like a and and a friend of Alice core. Which I had to wrinkle situation for him personally so You know he's the same way you know these guys. They all think they cheated against them. They data still a world series stolen from that changes legacies changes paychex changes. You know people status in this industry and they're all about it. It's it's a very interesting star. Is there another shoe to drop on this or having the as you view this? Is there more to happen? Or is this the last of the of the verbal tirades? The verbal volleying going on in Major League Baseball Spring Training. I wonder what the 'em obese investigation of the Red Sox. We'LL TURN OUT TO BE. You know what what has died. I'm happened The punishment that's an extra sort of shoe to drop The story just not GonNa go away the Astros. They're gonNA get booed everywhere pitchers they're gonna go after them There's GonNa be Dini meaning everywhere the Astros the All Star game is in. La Dodger Stadium. Who is going to represent the Houston Astros coach? He's going to be there but that's they could manage it's not Aj hinch Has Changed it. You know who's GonNa be Alex Bregman? Jose Altuve they. Are they going to be all starts at Dodgers Stadium? You know what's going to be like you know it's not gonNA end Major League Baseball wants to distorted. They WANNA push it to the side. They WANNA move on but they're not they're not going to be able to. This is a huge deal. I'm clear across the league players. Executive coaches managers. Everybody everyone angry and it's not going to go away. I know you only a few minutes or hey so we we do appreciate. We'll let you go. We appreciate you jumping in on short notice and sharing the story or Hey Casteel. La Times appreciate it very much. Thank you no problem. Thank you guys on the rich Eisen. Show the shorelines not GonNa go away right away and I think he's I think he's right on one John Audience's favourite conversation conversations about baseball the unwritten rules so he just saw talked about that. They're GONNA get booed. The Astros will Boeing's one thing but he said they're also gonNA be players hitters. Hit by pitches knocked down thrown at. I get it because you know bigger picture here. Is You take away? Somebody's livelihood or put it in question because that's what this did. Opposing pitchers opposing managers opposing. Players is that what this is cheated the extent that it impacts your life would might fire set at when he brought when he blew the whistle on this in November. He said I just couldn't take it anymore. Knowing that opposing pitchers were walking to the mound in Houston in these years and they had no idea that they were being cheated and robbed some of them having their careers. Like think of this. We talked about yesterday a pitcher that's called up from AA or AAA. Maybe it's the second or third time he's been called up. Maybe it's the last time they're going to give them a decent run and he gets called up and asked to face the Astros lineup in Houston. Now that's one thing having face because it's a hell of a lineup but then Mike viruses saying this guy who's trying to earn a major league paycheck. Maybe he's thirty one years old. Maybe he's not GonNa get another shot and he takes the mound against hitters. Who are going to cheat to know what's coming. That's taking your livelihood that is stealing your paycheck and at times. It stealing generational money in a paycheck. That is when and that's when the blankets serious right. That's when the blankets fan because we're not talking about winning and losing more talking about livelihoods and careers. Exactly I mean that's the shows the the weight of this and how the ripple effects go out in in you know hurt and you know not only hurt but effect people in the family members. Say Her fans the fans and organizations so I agree with what Horry Abou- game by game is going to be a a a circuit of booze and stuff thrown at them. You know they got to be ready for everything you know. Just be ready for the worst things to happen as they're PR prior to play on Road Games off it's going to be off throughout Major League Baseball and then in the summer it goes through the summer too. So that's going to be the interesting part in this. Hopefully the fans to some point. Eventually we'll get to where they gotta let it go to and then piggy back to baseball. But they're going to get a little flack for this. You're right and I you know. We talked about the unwritten rules in baseball. I'm all about honestly if you're not hurting anybody in this situation go forward. Because once again to reiterate I get bellinger's saying they lost the world series due to unprecedented cheating in the sport and all that happens is some fines. A manager loses his job. That's it they're still in. The record. Book is the Champs. They still get their rings. The players don't miss any games. You feel ripped off. I get it and part of how you try to get rid of some of that. Anger is probably you know throwing out the players. And I'm all behind cody bellinger here. One hundred percent you know. Listen we we. We watch a front and center because of where we do a show since Ryan Bronze PD scandal and he was suspended for the back. Half of a season and He is roundly booed everywhere he goes. And that's seven years later. Will you're right? And he's roundly booed. What is going to happen? When George Springer all walks to the plate when Jose altuve e walks to the plate Carlos Correa walks to the plate. It's going to be what happens. What happens with the opposing pitcher? And Are they? I mean this goes. Aol TO BAY is. He GonNa Wear Baseball's everywhere he goes this year are potentially yes gonNA throw at him. Potentially and the pitchers will throw until the say. Okay that's enough. You're throw one pitch right. That's GonNa just grace wherever we get. We get it now. Stop because eventually it's GonNa have to take control of that. Because I see the players doing agree with John. Players will do that until somebody steps. All right. That's enough of that. We get your point though. Pitches down the plate instead of trying to take guys out. I want the fans to bring in many trash cans to the Games. That every time in between pitches everybody's banging on the trash cans just to kind of you know. Hey if you guys are still for some reason doing this. Good luck trying to hear the trash cans in the same kind of making fun of the Astros for what they did. But yeah I mean fans are going to your you bring up Ryan Braun. We follow brewers in Wisconsin and they still places where he gets booed and it's because of the PD thing and so these you're right these astor's they're going to hear banging trash cans for the next decade novelty toys. The Astros do not play the dodgers in Inter League Baseball on the twenty twenty season. That's a shame So they're Inter League. Play is against the mets and Phillies And so the they they do not see. They also get The nats now there's one right they're gonNA play the nationals. Beat them but they cheated against the nationals. That's Kurt Suzuki's claim and I would believe that and they also good the Atlanta Braves. But so they and Miami Marlins so they do not get the dodgers and that would have been really compelling and interesting to to watch how that kind of played itself out but we won't see that Houston plays their Spring Training Baseball in Florida. The dodgers are in Arizona. So they don't see one another period right because that would have been incredibly interesting as well. So so many storylines to play on this list. I I'm smiling at the concept and I want to get back to the locker room because you were talking about that previously. Amman when we were talking about Jose Altuve. Am and your wife not one. Reporters access to the locker room year explaining how that works after game. I've talked about this. John knows John's kind of granting I tell people all the time I would come on Wednesdays during the the NFL League Week and do locker room interviews. I did that for a bunch of years and it's such an awkward thing to do to stand in the middle of that locker room waiting for players who've just many of them just come out of the shower to put on some clothing before one reporter begins to take a step in that direction. And then you know it's just underwear on and then they pulled the sweat pants on and then everybody comes over all waiting and listen. I think range. I think this is Let me do this on the other side all right because I think there's a fix to all of this and remorse. Don't like it when I talk like this other. Reporters writers part of the radio because they don't like when I suggest what I'm going to suggest when we come back. Can we hear this along side of a Motte Green and John? I'm Mike Keller.

On the rich Eisen show capital one has reimagined banking by offering savings and checking accounts with no peace war minimums and one of the nation's best saving rates capital one. What's in your wallet? Approval require capital one. Na member FDIC. So talked about this. I want I want to jump into the locker room. I've got a solution other reporters. Don't like it when I do this whether it's mainly there the print reporters that don't like it when I go here but this this is my opinion. It's been my opinion for a long time. I Cover Wisconsin. Badger football with our radio broadcast team home and away. So I have a different level of access than some of the reporters. I get one on one interviews. I am not in the locker room. So here's the here's the differentiation. Between College and Pro in the college game reporters routinely do not get to go in the locker room players are requested and brought out to a holding area. That's in a hallway or outside of the locker room correct in the professional sports after. Amman is talked about among green joins me on the rich. Eisen show after a what is a cooling off period. The locker room is open for all reporters and camera people regardless of gender. And in that scenario and I've been in there in that scenario in an NFL locker room in an NBA Locker Room in prof- in Baseball clubhouse it's called the clubhouse in baseball. I don't know why but when you're in there there are players in all all different states of dress and undress but that is the access for the media to be in there and I've always felt like why don't they adopt the college model if I am in the packers post game locker room. Why couldn't I have submitted to media staff? I WanNa talk to him on Green. I WanNa talk to Gilbert Brown. I WANNA TALK TO BRETT. Farr or I mean everybody. Everybody compiles a list and they bring them out to you. And that way there's there's you you straightaway get away from what I think at times can be awkward and I don't know if you felt it was awkward when you were there. You know it is what it is right. You lived off choice. I mean that's the way it is. You go okay. These are the rules. I'm just I'm just going to ignore whoever's in here I'll go about my business. I'M GONNA I'M GONNA shower. I'M GONNA come back out. I'M GONNA put my clothes on. Is that? There's nobody else other than other players in here. And that's the majority my set of players they get to that. It is a just make it adjustment. They can't control. It is what it is and then they just focus on getting dressed as quick as possible so that he could get to the interview and get out. The locker room gave home basically so guys majority of the NFL. But then there's several there's an a percentage of players that like Samsung Gado for example. He for the day it was it was it was cute to see. I'll say this the one time I'll say cute. Take a shower. You have all this close with him waiting at the bottom of the shower so when he hit he'll go to another bathroom a separate bathroom and lock the door behind him Kabeer Miller what you're saying. Okay there's a few players in every team Mike four three per team that do that so I thought it was cute like hey man he didn't don't WanNa just I'm not gonNa just do my own thing over here. I always thought it was so strange going into like you guys. Just get done with the game everybody's Sharif and then you're waiting well someone changes and you're just like I gotta get this question. This question needs to be out in the next thirty seconds of his now on. You can't wait two minutes for an athlete to get changed and then you go to them with a microphone with a shirt on and all right. So here's some reporters do that. They just have to get your let me braised. Yeah let me bring you in word because whether it's post game and during the week you get a limited amount of time So they opened thirty minutes after and the locker room is open for. I believe thirty minutes. I think during the week during practices forty-five minutes locker room is open. So you're all sometimes there's forty of you and cameras in there. I'm talking about media. Forty fifty media members with cameras and print reporters and online reporters and radio reporters. And they're all congregated in the middle of their own. Packers Locker Room is a big oval in the shape of football essentially. And you're all Kinda congregated on the G logo in the center of the room waiting for a player to get to a certain level of dress but remember is among green is getting dressed. And I'm in the middle. I WANNA get over there early into the process because as soon as is as soon as Amman turns around and starts answering questions now there are twenty five reporters there. And if you're not in you're not in and you're only doing eight to nine minutes because they're packers and NFL media relations director each of the thirty two NFL clubs that limit the length of an interview. They're they're they're standing by there listening making sure questions are appropriate and also going to cut it off. So you're not standing there for twenty five minutes or doing interviews while other people come over later right so this this all to me gets very interesting and I always thought again. I've always thought. Why is it that they don't adopt the college mode and have play request and bring the player out to an interview area? I mean that's I know that the beat reporters don't like me for that they don't like the IRA there every day. So they say you don't get it. You're not here every day and I think I actually do get it and if you have a player request even if it's an off player request and you're doing aside store that nobody else is going to have. You can still put in the player request and do that interview in a holding room as opposed to in the locker room. What is your domain? I mean listen. I'm aware that that is your area as a player. I'm invading your area to me. Just never seemed right but weird is there I agree. Is there another industry another job where you can just go into zero naked people and talk to them? It's that's why that's why I find it so strange like why. Why can't they just let the athletes get dressed and we'll talk lake sixty seconds later third hour of the Program.

Popeyes and MAGA Hats

The Kevin Sheehan Show

1:36:39 hr | 1 year ago

Popeyes and MAGA Hats

"You want it you need it. It's what everyone's talking about the Kevin Sheehan show. Now here's Kevin. You're listening into the sports fix so excited today because Tommy's in studio for the first time in what feels like maybe a month or it feels like a month. I haven't seen you here here in a while. Which means I don't get the complaining about the drive in and all of those issues but it's good to see you here? I think it's always I think you and I had a relationship doing this doing the show that we did for many years. That was different for me in that I always felt like it was better when we were together. I agree absolutely I think most shows is our but I in particular I think ours was I now. I did a show with Cooley where we were rarely in the same place and it never really. I don't think impacted at for me though you needed like visual clues. I think you needed some stimulation. Some physical stimulation emulates visual stimulation physical stimulation and. I thought that that was always important. But I think we've done this podcast with you on the phone and it hasn't really been you know that much different aren't no no and look it. It's always good. I just think it's better sometimes when you and I are together and we usually were you know the only time I actually now that I think think about it that we were ever separate was when just one of US went to the Super Bowl. It was that stretch of years where the company could only afford for one of us go to the Super Bowl and and we in you got. I guess I got some. I Got San Francisco and New York and New York work. And you got Indianapolis and New Orleans you got New Orleans and that was sort of the trade I said fine. I'll do New York in San Francisco but you know Orleans you gotTa Take Indianapolis Apple. That was the thing you want it to go to India eating. WanNa go to want to go to Indianapolis. Oh that's true and there were all and we you know what we had a hell all the good time in Indianapolis Back Story. You did come back because I think you think you fold flimflam some people into believing that you were a former notre. Yeah so you're not exactly. That happened in Indianapolis. Remember that No I'm I'm amazed at what you've done with the studio since I've begun. I see some batteries batteries on the shell. Yes there are in case we run out of juice and some Napkins. Yeah you know so. You've really made some changes like my office many years. But I'm the the other times too that we were not in the same place is When you went to Vegas for a fight but that was I went? We went several times going. Join again but anyway So before we get into the news of the day the sports the day which also is sort of the news of the day or yesterday with the White White House visit by the nationals. I wanted to tell both of you about an experience that I had last night. And it's topical because these Popeye's OP is chicken. Sandwiches have been you know big news here recently. Are you familiar with the whole Popeye's Tom. I'm I'm familiar with the phenomenon. Okay so Aaron. You're obviously obviously familiar with it. Have you had popeye's chicken sandwich yet. I have not had the chance. Tommy no I'm not a pop ice guy. Oh really oh no oh absolutely are. Are you a fried chicken person. Oh Yeah what's your favorite fried chicken. I'll actually Roy Rogers Roy. Rogers has some good fried chicken. Yeah they do roy. Rogers Yeah Royal Farms and then came as well. KFC KFC would not be on my list for Fried Chicken. Popeye's is definitely on my list. But the Roy Rogers thing you and I both love the Rogers so last night I was with my son. We had to go to this thing together and then we were intently. Where there is a Popeye's in he said said guess what Popeye's has the chicken sandwiches back and I you know I followed the story a little bit any also went on to tell me that somebody had been stabbed Abdul an oxen hill? Popeye's in line like there's been some real violence over cutting in line for these Popeye's chicken sandwiches anyway. Those of you that no the Tenley area know that there's that stretch of restaurants Z.. Burgers there I love Zeebrugge by the way I think it's very underrated And who loves me Burger and that that particular Z.. Burger was Obama when he was when he was president because Sidwell friends is right down the street where his girls went and so there were. I think multiple times times during his presidency that he went into that Zebra. I've never had. I've never had zebra. Here's pretty good so anyway There's that Z.. burgers potent Popeye's bunch of restaurants there. So so we were close so we went and we parked the car and were walking around to the front door. And there's this line out basically coming through the front want door. I'm like no no no. I don't WanNa do this core in my suncorp. Let's do it. It won't be that light. It will won't be that long so we walked in Tommy and I looked at the front register area and there were three registers and just one of them was where the line was going and I realized very quickly that the line was snaking like I. We walked in the door and then after about thirty seconds standing there somebody. That's not the line the lines over here in the front they had created somehow a snake line. That went from you if you let me draw the picture so you're looking at the front counter. There's register one. One far right registered to right in the Middle Register three flush left okay. The line started at the front counter at the at the register that was as far left and then snaked back towards the front door and then went around to the register that was on the far right so to get in line you had to go to the front counter and get in this snake line so it was like a you know Mosey you okay. Now I'm looking at this thing and I'm immediately unlike something doesn't make sense to me here. Because there was another registered the one in the middle with a person standing at the register a Popeye's pies employees that looked like they wanted to take orders but no one was in that line. So I didn't do the asshole thing of just walking walking right up to that okay. I didn't I thought about it but what I did is I made myself very clear to everybody in the store. I'm I'm sorry. Why are you opened this middle line? And she said yes and I looked to everybody. I said this register is open. Did you guys not know that. And they're like well the lines back over here. I know that we shouldn't be there. Should be two lines here for the two registers offers that are open and then with that somebody from the back like the manager. The assistant manager heard and it wasn't like there was no confrontation saying thank everybody. I think really what we should do. Everybody is create a second line here and forget this snake thing and just go with the two lines people like none and a man and you can't cut like people assuming I'm not putting I'm just saying this person sitting here ready to wait on us. No one wants to go in this line with that. The manager manager comes to the front and goes. Hey we got two lines here. Everybody would get into two lanes I cut. Everybody's time in half Tommy. So you're in for the the people so you're like a hero I was. You might have prevented somebody from getting stabbed. Perhaps prevented some violence. Yes because who knows what would have happened. Tempers flared in that snake line. If it took too long and you you like relieve the pressure. I cut everybody's time in half. What was remarkable remarkable? Did you get it. You should have got a free sandwich. Well you know it was funny because then I started. I was the ringleader making sure that the snake got divided into the two lines. So there's doesn't surprise me fairly this. This is me also I couple of people that immediately started to walk to the second line. I'm like no no no. We gotta go with the people that go in the order in which they defied the snake line and then the person who the first person who leaves the snake line is is in front of the second. We're going to take the snake in order and create the two lines. I mean you can't just go from the back of the snake line because you're closest to the Middle Register and jump jumping line. Your last in line in a couple of people tried to make that move. Oh and then they did the all. No No. You're right you're right. And then when we had the two lines formed there was a woman who is in the back that said I was in front of those people and I said well then you come right up and I said to the gentleman I said she was in front of you in the snake sake line. If you'll move back a little bit. Everything was fine fine so Aaron called WWL TV we've got a follow up on the On on the murder over to chicken sandwich. We have the Good Samaritan we do. You think a statue will be built at this location. Yeah and it'll be made at chicken by the way the chicken sandwich is pretty good so it's okay. Yeah I mean I do like Popeye's I think they're fried chicken. Can the Spicy Fried Chicken is just the best Roy. Rogers great too. Don't get me wrong. The chicken sandwich. So by the way it became a very a very lively crowd in the store and people started talking about chick fillet versus this particular. Some people had the sandwich before I had not had the sandwich and a lot of people. People seem to me. Still think that chick fil as a little bit better personally. I think If you told me now after having the Popeye's chicken sandwich if I had a choice like Goto hungry hungry. I think I'd go chick-fil-a Spicy Chicken Sandwich. I don't each. Oh you don't know why is that also like Cipolla girl thing. That's not a girl. That's a personal tommy. Once thought that he thought Tommy wants thing Tommy still saying tubby still thinks chipotle is for girls. I don't like ice ice. Got Guys go on this exact. Why guys go? Because it's for girls that went. I've never been able to follow but anyway there's my chicken sandwich story. I got this spicy without pickles. which was a bit controversial? I don't like pickles on my sandwich. You know you should send this clip to Popeye's I'll Betcha Kevin. It can get like six months worth of free chicken by the way. Is that it. I will tell you this a couple of the people that were in line and wanted to buy your chickens. They weren't ordering one chicken sandwich. There was somebody that order. Twenty of them really shit. Did they have a limit as to how many you could wake. They did not not that. I know of because somebody said that somebody in somebody that somebody was taking a long time said. Yeah they ordered twenty. Wow anyway okay. That's enough of that. How you doing? I'm doing great how much fun we talked about the world series already because we did a show on Thursday together. How about Saturday what? Oh absolutely great and I didn't know how much I was is in when I first of all I did the morning show with nick on one of six seven fan right and then from there made my way over Drove over are to parade route and I was lucky. I got a parking space on the street. Like a block from Independence Avenue. Wow Yeah I mean one time. Did you get down there. I got there probably twelve thirty. Okay you know And I got this great spot so I walked over to the mall and I sat sat on a bench and I had a post show cigar. And I'm thinking why don't know how much I'm really into. I mean I don't have to stay you know all this stuff it's GonNa be on. TV right calm. But I mean I can kind of get the gist of it and leave. If I wanted to well that never I never left running. I really I. He didn't leave until it was over because it was it turned out to be such a cool thing to see. I was lucky enough to get a good. Hi No no. I didn't do that. You could have secondhand hand down there. I was really now where I was. I mean I was right near the stage. Yeah and I was a small tight area. Yeah but I had in a really good I mean I was right on the rail of the parade route nowhere. It's like there were a lot of people who were in the parade. Who saw me? Who knew who me and who came over to saint item? That's how close that's awesome. Yeah we had a broadcast position next to Penn quarter sports tavern and there were a lot of people. Let's stop at by to say hello. I was surprised at that. Because we did not really promote that we were going to be doing programming For whatever there are a couple of reasons reasons for that but anyway I'm not going to get into those reasons but a lot of people came by settler we right next to Penn quarter sports tavern where I believe the team party was that night after the whole parade and it was a first of all and I said this yesterday but I haven't said it to you I I love my city city I I mean I am definitely not objective. I love Washington. I'm from here and born here. I I've lived here my entire life. I've spent a lot of time in other places but this is my hometown and I love our city now so much more than I ever did when I was younger. It's just a better city in so many their neighborhoods. Now there are areas is that are just thriving and it's a better young person city than it's ever been but when I t I drove to down there I'm driving down Massachusetts acid -chusetts avenue and it starts on embassy row with all the embassies were I'm just starting to see people in nets gear and on a couple of miles away at that point and people are walking up and dense beautiful fall. Saturday yeah and the difference between this and the cap spray to cap sprayed was a workday was a weekday. This is a Saturday a beautiful beautiful fall day. Now now that works both ways I point out to somebody a workday means you get the work crowd that will come out for the parade as well. Yeah I just think people have the ability to go to the parade on a non work day. Well it depends. I mean there's a lot of people working in. DC that's true you know and you really don't I don't know how many people you know their bosses said go ahead go out you know. Yeah go out to the parade so so Like in driving down there and then eventually getting you know in driving having around Dupont circle. It's it was amazing to me. Like Dupont circle gist hordes of people crowds of people. We're still you know ten ten blocks away and just driving down. It's it was. The whole city was buzzing and lit up with nats gear people people in that skier and then I parked in that city center area. I walked around. Chinatown watering impact. People excited people going to people coming from it. It was just I don't know it made me It was communal. It was very very communal. And I've said this for the parade was to this. It was I mean. I'm not a parade Geyer you I am. I Like I am a parade Guy In fact when the mets won the world series in eighty six I was living in Maryland working for the Baltimore Sun. I got on a train the morning of the ticker tape parade and went up to Manhattan and went to parade for for the mets in eighty. Eighty six there are very few if any things that unify us as people anymore. I've always said you're the king of your castle. You never have to leave your house right now. You can order food. You can order medicine you can you know you never have to leave so the the connections Shinzo that we have are not as strong as they used to be. People don't go to church is much they used to. They don't they. Don't join group as much as they used to. They don't ball. Ah Bowling Leagues you. As much as they used to. Sports still is still the one thing where we gather as different people For a common a common reason and the parade was the ultimate of that to me. I mean so yet this this is. This is the value of of professional sports in a city. It's it's one of the last unifiers. Yeah I mean you felt a lot of that. Certainly I went went to game three. I did not go to games for five but you felt a lot of that on that Friday afternoon all day. Long leading up to game three the first world series game in DC The that whole scene down at the stadium and in the bullpen and then and You know on on all of those apps through on half street well it turns out that the the the before the game experience for the three world series was most experience was that that was pretty awesome. And you know you got the sense that you get and you haven't done this a lot. I've done in errands. Done it where you go to some big college football games in. It's a whole day in an half. The people that are there aren't even going to the game. They just want to participate in this communal thing and I guarantee you a lot of people down a AH on the southeast waterfront for for for that week and we're not didn't go to the game they were just hanging out watching the game with everybody But anyway Saturday was just cool and I didn't mention this yesterday and I saw again. Somebody sent me the link to it. But I'm Chris Mad Dog Russo. Who I love you know? I love him. I've always been a big fan of his and I liked that show high heat he does. MLB Network but he referred to us on Monday. I think it was Monday. Maybe it was Friday. I forget when it came from he was like this is really a cool thing for a small market town like Washington. No and I heard him say that. And I'm like you know what that's such a New Yorker thing to say. It really is in a lot of my friends who live in New York or Connecticut or her New Jersey. You know it's in aren't from here it's sort of the way they view. DC Hello you know the number six market in the country. It's not a small market at all. this would be. The Washington would be considered a big market team. I believe it would be just not by people from from New York anyway. I don't know why slip that in I was I just thought it was a really cool day and cool night overall but anyway Let me do a quick read here for my bookie dot h. e. and then we'll get to the White House visit yesterday which Certainly stirred a social media yesterday afternoon.

Ag Use my Promo Code Kevin DC. You play you win. You get paid so yesterday. The nats visited the White House. Which Tommy there was a time where the championship teams? In any of the four professional sports it was a very benign event. Very the innocent to continue the celebration of being at the White House and say wasn't like walking into a closetful dynamite. No no it was too and and there was a closet full of dynamite yesterday because Kurt Suzuki was called up by the president when he got up there He put on a Maga- hat that make America. Great again hat and said I love you. I love you to the crowd shook. The president's hand shook the first lady's hand and walked off. And then it was Ryan Zimmerman Stern Ryan Zimmerman got called up. He handed the president. A Jersey Nets Jersey with the number forty five on it and his name trump on it and then he said the following Mr President me and my teammates first of all like to thank you for having us here. This is an incredible honor. That I think all of us will never will never forget and We'd also like to thank you for keeping everyone here safe in our country. Aw and continuing to make America the greatest country in the world that was Ryan Zimmerman. First first of all real quickly on Zimmerman. When you heard that did you hear that live? And what did you think immediately. I thought all this guy. He's just stuck stuck his hand into a Hornet's nest. Okay good now. That was what I thought it was the first thing I thought because I was surprised. I did a whole hour and a half on this radio this morning. There were some people that said you know. He may have just been being respectful. It may not have been revealing of his political bent. I I think it was personally. That's what I heard but I am open to the possibility that he was just being very respectful to the office into the president in that particular situation and he wasn't revealing his per political persuasion. But that's what I heard. I heard the same thing you and by the way more importantly that's what everybody else heard. Yeah pretty much yes. It is because after Suzuki donned the Maga- hat in Zimmerman said what he said all hell broke loose on the Internet. Absolute and here. I'm going to give you just a sampling of some of of the responses. You know a lot of people tweeted this out. And what I like to do on social media in events like this is read the tweets but then read the responses to the end under the actual news of what was said in and I went on a couple of people like you know Steinberg in who tweeted out there a lot of responses and other places as well on Zimmerman people said. Oh Wow I had. This is one tweet while I had been a fan of his since he was drafted in forty five seconds. I don't really care for him at all now. second one. This is really depressing. He was always my favorite Third one you broke my heart hashtags Zimmerman A fourth one never meet your heroes folks. A fifth one W T.F Zim. This makes me sick And they kept going on and on and on and really many of them were vile for Suzuki Zouqi. He had to lock his twitter account. Yesterday you saw that The responses were so Awful towards him. My my general sense of it is I could be wrong in reading. All the responses ninety percent of them were negative and maybe ten for ten percent of them. Were supportive But Again Sean doolittle you know to me very eloquently quaintly stated last week on Friday. I think it was or maybe it was over the weekend. Why he wasn't going to go to the White House and it had to do with the fact that he just did not agree with the kind of person trump was trump's rhetoric etc.? I'm sure he got a lot of angry feedback as well. I would assume that he did. I'm sure he did. A lot of tweets came from not people with three followers but people with thousands of followers. You know in one of them. I was reading shame on the nationals for appearing at the White House in normalizing wising this shit show of a presidency. Shame on Kurt Suzuki and Ryan Zimmerman both both who have shown their true colors. Disgusting Kudos to all the nets players players who refused to attend another one Ryan Zimmerman. Just singlehandedly ruined his reputation. This afternoon showed us all who really is this is through the nationals. Want is the face their franchise looks like they made the right decision and not picking up his option. Let him sign somewhere else. This was for me. Maybe your experience was different for me. This was ninety percent of the reaction. So Sean was going to say ninety five percent. Maybe it was it was. It was overwhelming. I was stunned at at how Oh people were were. Were off put by this because really you didn't think it was pretty well. Well no in the sense that I thought people I mean since only most of the teams have gone to the White House I you know the warriors were the only team. I think that actually didn't go. Yeah but a lot of players have backed Out Yeah but the players here in your I mean. The Cup showed up a couple years ago and made a big chunk of the red sox. Didn't I WANNA say it was about a third third. The Red Sox players didn't show that's including the manager by the way people are wondering seven of the twenty five players that were on the world series aries roster did not go sean doolittle as I mentioned was the only one voice The reason his reason for passing on the chance to go and again I thought he was very are- eloquent thoughtful and he said you know essentially he's not a fan of the president the president's policies the president's personal behavior rhetoric and he chose not to attend the other six didn't show up. I don't I don't think we have no idea why ensure Garrett Gara- wedding this weekend that's right on rollerblades supposedly had already booked his travel. We haven't heard anything from any of the people who didn't show up like random or anything like at that. There was any particular reason for their APP. But I would guess I don't know what the reasons are. I would guess that they had something to do with them. Not Feeling comfortable because of president trump I would it would be my guests. I wouldn't even jump to that conclusion. And don't I just think he had enough. It won't even at the CAPS APPS game was he. I don't know he wasn't so I mean you know he. He made just had enough of all the attention. So the other five. Do you think any of those five decided not go worthy. I don't even remember who the other But I think it's possible that none of the other five stayed away for political reasons. I think it could all be other reasons that then politics. I'd be surprised if all five of them stayed away for reasons that weren't political or weren't in terms of their person personal feelings towards the president. You know what that's actually not what we're here to talk about guests on percentages of those. That missed I. What was your so? Why were you so surprised at the reaction of of that? Because I thought the right when I heard him say it. I'm like oh well when he said that I mean the visit itself. I thought that I didn't think that people would overreact to visit I. I mean there are some people that said. They should've never visited the White House in the first place and I still think adopt teams are doing that that. That's the accepted norm that that that basically team still visit the White House here. Here's my thoughts onto two things on this first of all. It shouldn't be shocked to anybody that millionaires. I like the president. That should not be a shock and these guys are millionaires. Okay they have tons of money and in most most baseball clubhouses. I would venture to say that you find more trump supporters and that the not okay. So that's the one thing the second thing is and this is what I speak to all the time constantly and teams never learn the nationals. As a group had to be assembled before that White House visit by somebody with a brain in the organization and say look this is potentially volatile situation We're not I telling you if you feel like you want to express yourself politically. We're not telling you not to but we're going to tell you what will happen if you do this. This is what will happen if you if you express anything other than just a neutral benign Enjoying a celebration as opposed to any kind of political connection or embrace with the president assists. You you're going to be hurt as a result now. You don't care hear about that if you want to express yourself politically that's fine but this is what the consequences will be. Somebody needed to talk to that group and tell them that. I'll bet net at didn't happen that this was all just haphazard. I'm wondering why you were surprised at the reaction. If your advice I was look out the reaction action to to what Zimmerman and Suzuki did. Oh I was surprised that by some to the reaction that they visited at all I mean I I got a lot of. They should have never even made the visit and I just I just think that that's wishful thinking that that team still like. I said the cubs visited the White House and made a big deal of when they won the world series So that's that's all I mean. They they they. They didn't get good advice as Zouqi seemed steamed steamed shocked by the reality claimed afterwards that it was sort of a joke thing I think he was. I think it's it's not. It's the by the way I agree with you. That in in the other thing that I thought was interesting is that the nat- spokespeople were did not comment on any of this. which by the way I think is one hundred percent the right thing to do? And they didn't let anybody do interviews on this visit which was also the right thing to do is protective. which is what you were suggesting? They should have been up front and we don't know that they weren't right. We Dot Com assuming that they weren't I mean. Yeah because you know one Suzuki could have said I can't wait to meet him. I'm a big fan of his. I'M A. I'm an ultra conservative. I'm going to put this hat on. It's somebody should have said you can do that. It is your to do that absolutely you. It will be shit show following it. If you do that and by the way and I I want to get into this. I actually wonder whether or not their actions yesterday it could hurt them professionally. Oh I think I think in this town. If Kurtz zook showed up at fan fest well not fanfest. But if he showed up at a game now like a week from now he boot. Yeah Zimmerman I don't know about but Suzuki he'd be boot. I think Zim such thing as as you were saying whether or not you believe you can at least write it off as respecting the office of the go too far but you can spin it. You can't spend this is it With Zimmerman it's look. Tommy both felt the same way and I think most people did when you heard heard him. You felt like he just revealed that he was a big trump supporter. You know if he had actually said the words make making America great again Instead of where's the quote. Here I had here Making America the greatest country in exactly head making America. Great again you would have known for sure. Yeah you know but I personally. I don't think that that's debatable. I think he was revealing. But it may not be but he'd have to come out and say that today and say something like and he hasn't as far as yeah I know at this point said something like look my my comments to the president. Were respectful of the office and the position. It was not revealing feeling of my political persuasion or feelings in any way shape or form that was misread and by the way. Don't misread these comments either. Yes you know But I'm staying you you know I'm gonNA. I'm not being not being political there at all. He could say that but he hasn't said that as far as I'm as far as I got put again it shouldn't shouldn't surprise anybody I'm baseball. Players are conservative. Some ultra conservative and are supportive of a president who who cut their taxes. That should not be surprised so I would. I would disagree with you. I would agree with you that there are definitely you know That definitely people with high incomes Certainly more likely than not support a lot of his policies But I also look at sports and you have a significant percentage of minorities in sports. I would not say that the majority of clubhouses are locker rooms around professional. Sports are pro pro trump. I would say let's say majority and baseball. They are why because I just for one thing I just think what about what about the whole Latino portion of a team clubhouse and how significant that is in baseball. I know but it's majority. It's like a court twenty-five percent I would be surprised if it's a majority see that are pro trump by the way one way or the other. I don't necessarily care it just didn't when you said that it didn't ring true to me. It would be a minority certainly in the other sports it would be. It would be a significant minority in the NBA and in the NFL and maybe in the NHL it's closer and then don't forget. Don't forget like like Michael Jordan once said Republicans buy sneakers. Yeah they do. I mean you know just because somebody is a minority. You don't know what side of the fence. They're gonNA come down on whether they're gonNA come down their pocketbook order conscience. Here's my big thought on this. A couple of them but the big one is this after reading eating all of those responses. Everybody's entitled to their own opinion but I really don't understand and I would suggest to people that you know if you really were so off put as to. You're not gonNA root for the team or you're not going to root for either player a you know ever ever again and this is somehow really ruined the last month for you which a lot of people said yes. I don't get that. Why would you deprive of yourself of something like this like I personally have always viewed sports? It's a job for us. Obviously but beyond that it's a diversion to diversion away from you. Know the things in your life. That aren't as thrilling. That aren't as happy. That aren't as competitive. If you get into that part of it you you know the things that make you happy. This is a diversion from the things that make you unhappy to something that makes you happy. Like why would you deprive yourself of that because of the way to players believe and they're entitled to believe politically. It doesn't make any sense to me. You're entitled to feel that way it's into you're entitled to have this move you in a direction of. I can't root for that team anymore and I certainly can't root for these two players. I just would never ever like. I don't go to a concert Sir and listened to you know guy a bothers me when they get very political. But someone's Clint Eastwood Movies if I were a liberal. I'd still go to Clint Eastwood ars and enjoy them. Bob De Niro's movies. If I were conservative I wouldn't stop going to movies because I disagree with him politically. Okay Harris here's what you keep saying. You keep saying the word politically for these people. This is beyond politics. This is not politics. I mean for a lot of people in this country who speaking up about a lot of people were speaking about this. This has gone over the political edge. This is this is the right side of history kind of question. This is not a political question. Now What's interesting in that leads to this because it it was sort of my second point. Is that You and I've had some of these political conversations over the years off the air and I have have as well and I. I can't stand the extremes on either side. I view the extremes on both the left and the right to be actually very hypocritical. Because you you know in the case of the far left it's not that much different from the far right. They essentially want you to know that your not entitled to Your Opinion Nyan. You know you're wrong. Opinion is up for them to decide whether or not you are cancelable. Are you familiar with this. Whole cancel? Culture Aaron is do you know what the cancel Etzel culture is that we're living in okay so if you're not familiar with it look it up read about it. Part of it involves public social media shaming of people people who don't believe what certain people believe you're cancelled and certain in certain progressive circles if you don't believe in what they believe by the way that's so progressive sounding to me. It's among the the least tolerant in most close minded approaches. I've ever seen for people who preach tolerance and open mindedness. Yes I Tommy. Have some personal experience with this recently and I'm not going to go into the details of it but it involves. One of my kids are right and they're friends. You know I can just tell you that. Tolerance and broadminded don't ultimately lead to public shaming of people on social media media. Because they don't believe with your views I don't get it. The far right also screams the same thing that you're essentially not entitled to your opinion you know when it doesn't match up to. There's there's no moderate in this country anymore. There's no centrists. There's no practical or pragmatist. I mean you can't get elected in your own party. You know politically. If you're not four left or for right you play win the nomination. But that's part of the Problem Kevin. That's part of the problem The in the left the far left the far right the French. Yeah okay the French used to serve a purpose in this country in that they push the envelope but they weren't part of the they weren't part of of the interior I know they pushed it one way or the other they would push push but they weren't the power now they've become the power and that now now now and that's certainly argue that and that the damage that's that's that's the damage that's done right now and that's why this cancel cultures being up. Bring promoted canceling Tommy. The cancel culture. Is You know and what you have some Hatan you because you don't agree with me and we're going to publicly shame you on social media and by the way that's not a very the open minded view how about how about you know instead of being viewed as the Waffler or the straggler or you know that you're hey I'm liberal and I can listen to you and maybe learn something from you Mr Conservative and I'm a conservative and I'm actually gonNA listen to you. You know a Mr left wing to see if I can learn anything from you and then I'll make my mind up but you're entitled to your opinion and I'm entitled to Mine and you can disagree with me but you can't publicly shame me you know on social media which is what these people were trying to do too Ryan Zimmerman and Kurt Suzuki. You saw that fringe yesterday. And you're right it's it's become more significant. It's not fringe anymore. Okay and that to me first of all when it comes to my original point I just personally wouldn't wouldn't let Kurt Suzuki or Ryan Zimmerman or Clint Eastwood or Vince. Vaughn's views in the same way that I wouldn't let Bob Deniro's views deprived me of my diversion and entertainment. I just wouldn't take it that seriously but some do and I thought that they went overboard yesterday but again they're entitled to their opinion. They're wrong opinion. You know I I think ultimately it will fade. You know as time goes on what will fade. I mean Zimmerman thing I think it will fade as time goes on but you know either either guy should not have been surprised if they're surprised at the reaction. They shouldn't have been at what happened. It's they should have been. They were in the Ballpark Park. When the president got booed? They should not have been surprised by the reaction I bit Suzuki was surprised. Then he he's not a very is not a very sharp and I don't know that he's not sharp. I'm not suggesting that he is in his reaction up up. There was sort of like I don't I I'm clueless as to what's coming here in the moments that follow this hat. Where oh I think? He was stunned by by by the reaction. Yeah I think he was stunned by it but I think you're right about Zimmerman if Zimmerman were actually revealing himself to be you know a trump supporter to me. I Bet Zimmerman was not surprised with the reaction. Now let me get to this. By the way you know to your point I agree with you. It's GonNa fade like nats fans who were so angry that are major. You know Democrats can't stand the president and even though centrists and moderates who can't stand the president you know that that's the other conversation that's going on in this country. Can you actually support his policies and hate him. I think the answer is yes. A lot of people do not believe that. That's the right answer they believe. Essentially if you support this president you're racist you believe in what he believes in personally I don't you know I listen to Michael Michael Jackson's music. I love it still thrillers. A great album off the walls one of the greatest albums of all time. I am not pro pedophilia because because I listen to Michael Jackson Artists President or two different okay. That's that's that's fair to a certain degree but I think it's the same thing conceptually In terms of you know you can be detached from their politics. You can be detached from their personal behavior. Instilling the yeah. I don't think I on this. I don't thank you and I disagree on that but Let me get to what I said to you earlier. Do you think that the these these I think it'll fade for the most part like you just it does with Brady and belichick every time you know. Say that their friends with Tra. Okay but could it in this town in particular. Could it hurt Zimmerman Merman. Do you think the team would ever consider if they were considering resigning him for a one year deal bringing him back. Do you think this could change their mind now. Now I don't think thanks so I just don't think so. Zukis contract deal Erin. I believe he has another year on it. Yeah and Suzuki is such a valuable guy in that clubhouse it's not going to affect the standing of either player with their team. You think I guess my question should be you better put. Is it bad business to bring Zimmerman back. Do you think that anybody in the organization will consider it to be bad business. Brings them back no knowing the learners absolutely Louis Not Mike Rizzo absolutely exactly. Yeah so did we just reveal what resist politics no I just. I just don't think he would let any politics one way or the other affect the decision to bring back a baseball player. I agree with you But I think that that should have been part of the LET. Let me prepare you for this day from their PR people. Yeah it you know you you can do whatever you want but you know Freedom of speech is not free it does not equal freedom of consequence. Kapernick can tell you really beats the first amendment. Means the government can't put you in jail for what you said. What does it mean your boss can fire you or people can't criticize us right and I got one year left on his deal? Yes so I just. I think that I think this will fade like he pointed out with Bela check at Brady. Very good comparison. I mean you know I mean they. They've written letters of support that they've they've spoken up in support four and at New England Fans New England Massachusetts. It's Maryland in the sense you know in terms of being liberal Massachusetts doesn't seem to affect the white people love the Patriots. That's true that is true I think you know in in thinking about this. This last part of the conversation it will fade. It will absolutely fade. That's what I would put my money on that. By the time we get to spring training and by the time we get to the opener and opening day and they're Hanging a banner that these people that were so livid on twitter yesterday and and are threatening and absolutely have dug their heels on that. They're you're not gonNA root for the team or they're not going for Zimmerman and Suzuki at that point will say eh there just athletes. I want to enjoy the game. One of my callers today. They actually was I in your favorite I asked I n I went off on you. Know he doesn't think he can root for the team the players etcetera and I said so it's the LDS next year it's game five. They're playing in the cardinals and the bases are loaded there down to with Zimmerman up at the plate. You're rooting for for him. To tip with two outs. You're rooting them to make the final out. And he goes yes I think that will fade. Yeah I think it will too. I do too all right. We've we've got other things to get to including the latest. Starting Trent Williams. This is amazing. What none of these topics neither one of these two topics has anything to do with with with anything that's happened on the field and by the way the next two topics will be that what you're saying all all the topics day? Nothing about games. Well we can talk about the wizards game that no no no because I did watch some of it for the first time this year. They're actually not as terribles. You think the like the What's his name Hachi Hachi more he's he looked pretty good I like I haven't watched any of the Games because they went head to head with the four World Series Games and then the parade also. I could have gone right over to Chinatown to watch the game. They were home Saturday night but anyway. I don't want to talk about the wizards. Nobody wants to hear. RECAP THE WIZARDS GAME I. I'll tell you a player. I I really like I like Mo Wagner a lot and when they signed him when he when he was part of that deal. I said that he's GonNa be he's GonNa be good pro. I always liked him at Michigan and hot summer so far looks really good. Looks really good. They got some shooters. They played a team last night. That didn't have anybody there. Blake Griffin was out Reggie Jackson was out and somebody else was out. I I forget who was We can talk about the Monday night. Game to talk about the Games. Now I mean either the cowboys By the way I don't think are very good right now But they blew out the giants late all right quick word. What about our APP?

Also the website website the Kevin Sheehan show dot com all right. Let's get to the Callahan stuff from yesterday. So Bill Callahan yesterday announced that He's not going to make up his mind on the quarterback situation until next Monday. That's his plan is next Monday. and He. He was peppered by our local media. You proud of them. Yes I think. They did a good job they did not John kind kicked it off and said you know you're going to name a quarterback back in Callahan. Did his thing and then it was one person after another. Craig Hoffman included in there. Any basically said you know. I'm not making a decision. I've got time here. We've got the bye week to go back and look at a lot of different things. That's the posture. Were taking We haven't determined anything yet He said I quote. I think we've got some time here. We have a bye week. We don't play for two weeks so I just wanted to gather all the information. I want to look at a lot of things on film. Go back into the Self Scout. which but she talked about a lot yesterday and I just want to take my time and decide where we're going to go in the direction we're going to go in closed quote? Go ahead Aw Look the first thing that thing. That puzzles me. The thing that I'm just like obsessed with right now. What the heck is the owner thinking? What is his me? I mean we. We have to assume that if the owner wanted Twain Haskins to start he'd be starting. I mean this is the interim head coach. We're talking about here. It's not like he'd have a problem pushing Bill Callahan around to tell them who should start. So why doesn't the Owner why Twain Haskins to start the owner. Bruce Allin lump them together the two together. Why don't they want them to start? It's legitimate legitimate football reasons or do they think that. Oh my God we really messed up. This guy can't play. I didn't see anything on Sunday. That would indicate indicate to me that you should be scared to put Twain Haskins on the field. I mean He. He didn't turn the ball over that he was very limited. In what what they asked him to do But there was nothing I saw. That would say to me. Oh my God if you put him out there it's going to be a train wreck it it might be a slow moving caboose. But I didn't see trainwreck out there so I don't know why you wouldn't put him out on the field the rest of year moving forward I. There's nothing in there that I saw on Sunday. Maybe they see something different in practice that would indicate to me that what you would embarrass himself. beyond reproach if you put him on the field yeah I mean I think I said yesterday being by the way. If you guys haven't listened to the podcast yesterday Cooley came on had already done a film breakdown of Haskins performance in buffalo and thought the same thing that I had said earlier in the show yesterday which was what's everybody afraid of what what's every put been. Afraid of. The guy was fine. He was no worse than keenum would have been McCoy. Coy would've been honestly. I think he's better than than McCoy would have been. That's a bit like I know I just did that for your purposes. You're here but first of all I think they're gonNA he's GonNa Start. I don't think there's any chance he's not gonNA start so I don't envy studying. If he wouldn't start it would be. It would just gomes thing of all time it would just be. It would be a red flag you. I think we've already gotten the red flag by taking so long but of course it wouldn't be a red flag it would be you know the Crimson. What's the darkest red possible not Crimson? BURGUNDIES are pretty dark. Red Tim Zoran would say Maroon Maroon So I think he's GonNa Start. I don't know anything. I just can't imagine that he started in Buffalo. He didn't soil himself in Buffalo. Oh nothing was your chance of winning. The game wasn't compromised with him in the game. Because he couldn't call plays or couldn't get to the line of scrimmage in time time you know it wasn't so scaled down that you had no chance of winning because this dude Callahan goes on and on and on my God. I mean his press conference. Yesterday I pulled up ten. NFL Press Conferences Mondays. His was five minutes on average longer than everybody. Else's it's amazing. The answers he comes up with and how long longways seems like a very nice man though. I heard. He's a very nice man but Tommy comes not as funny as Jada. No He's humorless and he's really really trying trying so hard to sound so smart it is. I talked about it this morning. it is the so. There's there's there's this consulting group called Mackenzie. It's one of the largest. It's where a lot of Harvard you know a lot of eight Harvard business school guys go and they work there and then they get placed from their. CEO's in companies. It's like they're really Polish. They're really smooth. They use all the business buzz terms. And that's that's him like he's trying so hard to be that person and he's not by the way but he's had some sort of exposure to those people like Bruce has I'm sure and they're trying trying so hard to be this polished professional that Jay by the way wasn't now of course and it's just not impressing me. I can't speak for anybody else. It's not impressing me. He's he's a gas bag in these press conferences and he says nothing but he goes on and on and on and gives you the itinerary. I've been playing that sound on the radio show It's just it's insufferable. But anyway he's GonNa he's GonNa Start Doing Haskins. I don't know why he's going through this. It may be because he wants Haskins askins to continue to feel like he has to earn it. You know during the spy week you know. He doesn't want Wayne to take the week off. There have been some questions and some things imply Duan's. It's not the first one in last one to leave every day stunning. I know but I would be shocked if he's not the starter against the jets and it may why not be what Kellyanne wants. Because Callahan wants to prove to Bruce and Dan that he can be the head coach next year. But it's definitely with Dan and Bruce I think at this point. Yeah I mean if right if he's not starting against the jets then you might as well start scouting for quarterbacks in next year's draft exactly yes that's that's that's where you're at at at that point now the jets arguably not arguably the jets are a worst organisation than Red Sano. It's pretty close. It's very close and again if you're redskins fan. Don't use that to make Williams Greg Williams preferred to work for that organization than this one. So take that into consideration. Not that everybody loves Greg Williams but he had the choice and he chose the jets. Yes my point. Only being is as bad as the jets may be that Greg Williams is going to do everything. He can to embarrass Twain Haskins. He's going to. That's GONNA. That's a revenge game for Greg Williams. Why it because I'm sure for him? It just is this because they didn't hire him as head coach. I'm sure every time he plays the chance to come back here last year I wanted to. Potentially he would have been the head coach right now. That's true You know he would've yeah. I think Haskins will start. I think the insanity of of not starting him is now ARRI to everybody out there. I do think that you know they believed that. Then one and eight that now it's time to find out what he has I think they're also also my guess. Is that out there. This is a guest. Don't know this for sure that Sunday at least gave them comfort that it wasn't going to be a total unraveling professionally at the position You know I think this guy's got some backbone I think he's pleaded Ohio state. He played some massive of games in front of big bigger audiences than the one explaining with the redskins right now and I always felt watching them in the preseason that you know he's not a fragile psyche. Guy You know that that he would be more of a of a Gamer if you put them out there and there's a lot about what he did that I liked I by the way somebody said so. Do you think he's going to be good now. No I don't I personally don't think he's going to be like the long-term answer but I thought he played pretty well Sunday Sunday. I believe both of those things and what I really believe is I got to see more as a fan as someone who loves football. I need to see him for these final seven games gotta see. Does he grow. Does he compete does he lied One of the very subtle things about about Sunday's game that Cooley pointed out and I I think is true is watch him you know. In between plays he was onto the next play he was getting the play. He was trying to hurry Callahan and O'CONNELL up to to get in he was he was really immersed. How many and on top of many delays games? Today's zero zero. Now we've seen you under Jay. GRUDEN delay delay game was was was a chronic problem. Yeah I mean we. We've seen it with O'CONNELL time so so But you know several people said to me the after the show yesterday so now you're join Haskins Fan. Look both of these things can be sort of mutually exclusive of one another. I can say about Sunday's game aim I gave him a B. B. Minus And I thought he played pretty well in the bar. You know admittedly was pretty low going in. Yes okay but I can also say that my gut is that. He's not not going to be an elite quarterback. That's my that is my gut. I felt that way about him coming out of the draft. I feel that way about him now but I'm not giving up on the possibility that he could be because we haven't seen them enough. We got to see him. You know. Nobody's the experts. Aren't right about quarterbacks. Most of the time most of at the time they get it wrong. Hopefully we you know those of us. That don't think he's going to be a great quarterback. Have it wrong but anyway I think he's GonNa start against the jets. I'd be shocked if he would tear point. It would be the the darkest of red flags of all time. If he doesn't yeah it would really be saying saying. Wow you suck and we all recognize that you suck And we the season's gone and it still doesn't matter we don't WanNa see you. The only other plausible explanation would be that the Twain Group. You know the People Ah along with. Dan are having a conversation. That goes like this Callahan's not going to be here. Bruce nut might not even be here. There's going to be a whole new. A group of people. Why expose him and have him learn an offense? That isn't going to be here under coach. Who isn't going to be here? Why not have him start from scratch with the new coach that has bought into join presumably? Because you've hired Ed and have him start from scratch. I personally think that's a bogus argument. I think you can learn a lot. Who Cares? He's you if you don't think you can learn from something about Dwayne Haskins playing these seven games in this system. Trust me a lot of what what he does we. It's translatable to other systems and other coaches or things and he can't do totally translatable or transferable to other coaches his and other systems so I just WanNa see him play. I mean reason to watch them the rest of the way if he does employ that alternative theory that you put out there. I I mean the the main risk of that is you have no idea who will be your coach next time around. You don't know who you're going to be able to hire even you don't even know who's going to take the job and the person that takes it presumably is going to have to say like Gruden did with Rg three. I'm all in on Dwayne. Yes you know so I will say this by the way back back to you know my gut is still that. He's not going to be an elite starting quarterback in the NFL. But I will say this about the game on on Sunday and some of the preseason stuff that I aw I am. I am more encouraged than I was watching him at Ohio state last year. And sort of doing my own fan thing of what kind of pro quarterback Willie only be 'cause. I was not a big fan of him as a first rounder I didn't think he he he i. I just didn't think he was going to be a good pro quarterback but I'm more more encouraged about that possibility that I have been like. I heard Saeb yesterday on his show. Just he did the thing by the way he did. The thing that that That springs and smoot and Clinton all the ex-players warned about playing dwayne is that he's not going to be ready in the fans in the media are gonNA turn on him. You thought they would too well. I thought he would be worse than what we saw Sunday and I thought he would be train wreck and I say somewhat I heard I you said you that even if it is a train wreck that people are going to be more patient they wanna see him play. They realized he was the first round. Pick rookie that. They'll be more patient. Will Zabreb came came out yesterday and said what are we. What are we doing here? He goes he stakes. Can't you'll see this. He stinks. He's no good food he's not gonNA be any good. It's why they couldn't even make a decision after Sunday about him. Being the starter. That's why he didn't start before and he may ultimately stink but it's way too premature to know that for sure although it's it wouldn't surprise me if down the road. It doesn't work out for him. And by the way if I was forced to bet is going to be a top fifteen quarterback top ten quarterback or not I would bet no but I wanna see them play gates. I mean you you keep dismissing the notion that fans would turn on him. I want to point out. Sabe did at the train wreck. Didn't happen on Sunday and it was in Buffalo. I wouldn't expect expect buffalo fans to turn on him. Let's see how he does when he's home Before thirty thousand redskins fans by the way. If he doesn't start start that they should start him just for the reason that they might get thirty thousand because without him in the starting lineup. That crowd will be the worst of all time in terms of attendance not not the opponents fans. 'cause there aren't going to be any opponents. I either like the jets redskins game on November. Whatever date that is now? What is that date? Seventeen seventeen On November seventeenth if case keenum. Were the starter. You will not have thirty thousand people in that stadium. Tommy no chance well it will be the worst attended game because you're exellent always balanced travel down the jets play. They don't even go see them up up the giant stadium. The bad weather game they played against the chiefs in twenty thirteen. Shanahan's you know last few games when it was snowing and sleeting. That was true empty stadium pretty much. Yeah you would see. I think he'd kick off. I don't know if it's a nice day. No more than twenty five thousand while IRA around. Even I wouldn't drop that love now. Haskins is going to start. You got a chance to get forty fifty thousand in the stadium. Don't you think. Nah I don't think I don't think he's worth twenty five thousand fans have come on. He's worth twenty five thousand people deciding to go with the tickets they have. I don't know it's probably league true. That's probably true. He's not worth twenty five. He's worth ten thousand fans. He might be worth ten thousand. I think he's worth ten thousand fans all right. One last thing on on Callahan's press conference first of all he kept referring to the self scout for those that don't know what that means during the bye week all these teams basically we take the opportunity to scout themselves by the way a lot of teams and I was told this because I had a conversation with somebody that I know very well that knows the NFL and how it works last night said that a lot of team self scout. They're they're themselves every week. You know the really good teams. Yes basically self scalp themselves after every game and what they do is they come back with trend trend breakers. You know they don't they. They know that somebody's studied them this way in. They're expecting this. So they do other things. The redskins under Jay Gruden and now under Callahan and seemed to think that the only time you can do a self scouts during the bye week. Well you know a lot of work. It's a lot of work a lot of mine. It's a hard enough job as it is but he he kept talking about the Self Scout. I kept thinking to myself. We can do yourself scout for you. Suck like your terrible on defense year. Even worse on offense offense but you've got a really good punter theirself scout. Yes He also I mean this is where like as he's going as he's giving these long winded into dancers you know he'll hit on something and I'll be like. Oh my God listening to it so I have to like make notes because I'm dozing. Usually listening to these press conferences. But he was talking about his defense on third down and he said There are manageable positions. There's always that thirty five percent forty percent enchants that that a team's going to convert that's the basis of our league. You know he translation the average in the League on third downs. Thirty five forty percent defensively Louis but when you get into longer down distances those are the areas that we've got to contain and we and when we get into double digits. We've got to do a better job. Meaning third erred in double digits. Or longer he says the play that sticks out for all of us and that we'd love to have back was the third eighteen at the end of the game for that to happen. It's uncharacteristic it shouldn't happen The third and eighteen in the buffalo game followed the Minnesota game were Minnesota may third nineteen. Drive it's not that uncharacteristic in fact it's pretty typical with this team but then again they're sort of detached from the reality of of of what they are but it made me think about and I know I mentioned the season a lot and it ended with that giant game which you referred to many times and we all remember number that 2016 defense. This has been a problem for the redskins now for many many years under several different offensive coordinators they are consistently a horrible horrible third and long team. Yeah and part of that reason is they haven't had the dominant pass rusher. They haven't had a truly elite pass rush or pass rusher and you know when you pin your ears back on third and nine third and ten you know but teams in two thousand sixteen. The redskins had the worst third and and eight or longer defense since the merger began. Wow in that season ended eight seven one and that's that's the season for me and so so many people are out there you know. Oh he's about to go kirk on on you. I'm not about to go kirk on everybody. They were really good offensively. I know they struggled the red zone if they just sucked on defense rather than been historically bad on defense that would have easily been a playoff team. They would've easily won ten games and had chance with that team to win eleven for the first time since ninety one. That's the team. Twenty twenty sixteen team the team. You know that destroyed Green Bay on the Sunday night and had a bunch of big offensive outputs during the course of the year but they could never get off the field. You know in that giant game that we've talked about many times. The giants were like in that first. Half I'M GONNA go back and find it they. They rushed for more yards than they had ever rushed for all season long and in the game like in the first half they were like five for nine on third down in that first half they couldn't get couldn't get the giants off the field game. Now Kirk was terrible. In that game. Both things can be true but that two thousand sixteen season. That was the one in in recent years that I was legitimately all in on. I was like this team could actually do something until we started to see how bad they were on defense and it's not been solved. You know. They they their defense. Which Rob Ryan proclaimed has top-five talent is the thirty first ranked defense defense on third down in the League and they're one of the worst third long defenses in the League right now? How can't they fix that? Why do they always suck doc on defense? By the way you know what was interesting. I was watching you know. After the game I switched over to NBC Sports Washington for Post Game Show and they showed Ryan Kerrigan. Walking through the tunnel can horrible Reagan. Did he play. I know I mean what's he in the game. He is really taking a step back this year. They have some talent and defense. I'm GonNa continue to believe that. I think they do. I mean I I've listened. You know what one of the things I do and I know you you would think this is really geeky and boring. But I always listen to the other coaches postgame. Presser is well just to see what they say about the team and in the last. I haven't listened to the Buffalo Coach McDermott yet. That was enough the buffalo game. But I listened Zimmer after the Viking Game Kyle Shanahan after the forty niner game in both of them unsolicited went out of their way to say. That's a really good in talented defensive front over there and that that was said by another team earlier during the season I think it was said by Dallas they said by Jason Garrett actually But they do have some talent there but why do they just consistently stink on defense. They haven't been good on defense in years. I mean really. And they're they're drafting defensively more than they they have. They've got a good interior defensive mix they must really be horribly coached on defense. And it's been that way going back to Joe Berry. Yeah Yeah you know before that in him. Has Jim hazlet before they even as late. Yeah I I just don't why can't they figure that part out I don't know so anyway What else did we have A? We had the Trent William Stuff. But what are you looking at nothing. Did you want to add more about the buffalo drew. Nothing more to add Kellyanne L. and okay Let's let's move into This Trent Williams situation which I did we talk about this Thursday or not because he had had he spoken yet had he given his presser and Thursday. I forget I don't think he had When we I think we did? Okay so see this is a pothole podcast in itself. Kevin it is a trend Williams thing really okay. We'll good. Let's let's get to it then so just to you. Catch everybody up to speed chronologically. So he had a long holdout came back. You know right before the trade deadline on Thursday for the first time I'm we heard from Trent where he you know accused the Organization of being negligent for six years in in In detecting and diagnosing the cancer that he had we also heard from him about the horrific and very scary situation. He went through with cancer with Being told to get his affairs order which is something I shared with everybody on the podcast. I think in in August That that was something I learned about him being truly frightened and terrified by the situation relation. that it was a life or death scare for him. He's got young children and you could hear that in his voice when he talked on Thursday And then the team responded responded with Not a statement about what Trent said but asking for this third party independent investigation between the League and the NFL OPA And then on Sunday and I talked about this on the podcast yesterday the NFL PA came out with statement actually chronologically. There was the Charley casserly the report and we played that for you yesterday. I'll netted out Charley. casserly essentially reported based on his sources that Trent knew about this and was told about this by lighted team three years ago and told to do something about it and he chose not to And then the NFL. PA came out with this statement on Sunday. And I talked about it yesterday. Were essentially you know they threaten those that were giving misinformation about Trent Williams. And they're specifically referring to the Charley casserly comments comments right and that And I and I said in reading through that statement. I think they're on the verge potentially talked about this on the podcast of maybe deciding not to go through with this third party investigation. which to me? If they do that it will come off as very fishy and and we'll deserve some scrutiny over. Why and sure enough after the podcast yesterday there was a report from the NFL PA.? I think actually it was first. I spoken about on the Junkies on yesterday. With with Damore Smith Right yes. WHO said they're not going to pursue this thing? Trent does not would prefers prefers not to move forward with this third party. Investigation which would be an independent investigation. That would reveal all the facts of this situation from the Redskins side and from Trent side and I thought that there was the possibility that could happen and we got that yesterday. I The podcast was over and I don't think it's completely reasonable for reasonable people to wonder why and to think will that. That is fishy because that says to you can reasonably say that makes makes me believe that. He doesn't don't want this investigation because the facts when they come out will go beyond what he just said in that presser on Thursday which by the way. I think that he probably did leave a lot. That's my viewpoint. Based on some of the information I know he did have cancer. Okay he did have a surgery he was. You know this was a serious serious situation. I can't give you the degrees of seriousness with this. I can just tell you it was serious enough that it had to be removed and that it was cancerous and it scared the hell out of them now with respect to how the team handled it over the six year period were they completely negligent over six years. He says yes my sense is if they spoke spoke they would say no. They haven't said anything they just asked for the third party investigation which now he doesn't want going forward before you answer. I will say this. I'm open to the possibility that the truth is that this was such a traumatic experience for him that he doesn't want to relive it which is what the NFL PA statement said. I am open to the possibility that this was so awful for him in so scary for him that he knows he's going to be questioned he's GonNa have to relive relive this thing which by the way he relived it Thursday during his press conference But I don't but that's I'm open to that being a possibility but but I think the probability is that he doesn't want all of the facts to come out. That's what I would guess based on him not wanting to move forward with this because because if the facts completely supported what he talked about last Thursday I would think he would want to go forward with this go ahead of the facts partially supported what he said That might not be good enough at this point for him. I think they would partially support some of what he said. Okay so I think it also might take the team off the hook to a certain degrees. Well well I know. I think what will happen like everything the so-called truth that Bruce Allin those lie somewhere in the middle I think side their side ride in the truth right. Yeah and and so. I think it's entirely possible that What part of what he has claimed will turn out to be true and part of what he has claimed You know died has made the team look bad or turn out to be questionable if not not true. What I don't understand is why why there's a segment of Redskins fans and shows how warped you all are out there? By the way that you're so willing to pounce on this player who had cancer and you're and you're so willing to stick by and defend and organization that's so reprehensible and so the with a track record of disgust and deceit and your first move is is to attack the player and back the team. I don't understand how you can do that. Are People doing that. Oh my gosh yes. Do you think that that's what I just. I know you opened up the possibility that that it's a reasonable position to believe that he doesn't want to relive this again. But but my but let me just be clear on this. I I don't want I don't want you to mistake by my likelihood is that he wants. He made a mistake in realizes he shouldn't have accused the organization in publicly of what he accused them of on Thursday and that he that there are major pieces of the puzzle missing from this story that when when they come out will make the organization looked better than the way he made it look. That's my gut feel still. I think he's likely still likely not good But by the way I don't if people took this step of of going beyond not believing that he had cancer had this growth. That's that's that's ridiculous and this whole knows. I see a lot of people attack him for so-called personal responsibility that. Why didn't you go on your own? Charlie get your own second opinion here. Look I've known people who have had cancer and people react to those words in all kinds of different circumstances dances if trump was told at one point. Not to worry about this growth. You're you what you do is you. Don't most people bull or a lot of people won't go searching for a reason to believe otherwise. Don't disagree with you on that at all. Okay so you can't interpret how people will react when they're concerned about cancer if they're told they have cancer if they're told not to worry about it. There are all kinds of different reactions and to admonish him for not getting a second opinion. It may have been foolish but it was. It was certainly a human reaction to do that especially if he was told not to worry about it in the first place so stop attacking this guy for not not making the right steps to protect his health. You know I mean there are people. Oh I know. People who've had cancer who refused to get things looked at until the very end of the moments. I mean it happened. Everybody out. There knows people people that are told you know you better go take care of this. And they're like I'm fine. Yeah I'm fine at the same time. Let me also throw this out sort of as a flip excite at the same time sometimes you can hear things from doctors that you completely blow out of proportion as well yes like he may have heard. Now get your affairs. There's an order if that was said. That's pretty definitive. Yeah so I'M NOT GONNA. I'm not gonNA suggest that he could have misinterpreted that. Because that's a serious serious tone in a series. You don't even need the tone Mr Williams you need to get your affairs in order. How else could that be taken? So but you know to you hear that you know it's a good thing you got a hold of this thing now because if you didn't you know could have potentially down the road gotten to your brain or whatever and for him. I'm to blow that up into I was about if it hadn't had if I hadn't gotten to taking care of it was about to become brain cancer like there are a lot of ways that people interpret the things that are just and handle things. That aren't necessarily the right way to interpret it or the right way to handle it like you just said it may not he he could could have certainly heard. Hey thing that's growing in your head it's fine. All we needed to do is hear. That was fine once yes to completely think that he was off the hook and he was fine absolutely absolutely. That's a normal human be permanently sort of stuck to that first impression of yeah. We think it's fine. It's probably just assist. Yeah and at some point. Maybe somebody said now you actually got to go look at it. And depending on the tone in the way that was described or communicated it could have been received. Yeah Yeah but you remember when you told me it wasn't a big deal. I'll stick with that one for now. You don't got that part that bothers me the reaction against try look. I'm not a big Trent Williams fan. I could care less about him as a player. One way or the other but as a human being What he what he seemed to have gone through? I just don't get this this AH attack on him and this willingness to so quickly I mean to to believe this organization. I know it's hard for you to actually look at your redskins gear on Sunday at. That's and realize that you are donning. I mean you're you're you're putting on the evil empires uniform I. That's what you're doing. I don't think you know you'll rooting for an organization that that is as an embarrassed. I think you're projecting here I think you are assuming that people might be Now really skeptical title of Trent Story. I'm telling you the feedback that are doing Nikon anything okay. I'm telling you what I know. I think a Lotta. aww I think people can't stand when they were people can't stand dishonesty or you know again. I don't know if he was being dishonest. or he just left significant portions of the story out or if he actually believes that this is the way it went down. Or if it he's he's one hundred percent accurate and didn't leave anything out. I'm just saying that. I think a lot of people when he decides not to move forward with an independent investigation patients. This that by the way might make it easier for him to sue the Organization for medical malpractice and get back a lot of the loss money that he we had that that. It's not unreasonable. For people to say that's fishy and by the way it has nothing to do with me being pro organization not talking about L. Fat. Okay I am not talking about that. You're saying I'm telling you even before. The Independent investigation came up. This was the reaction I was getting from a lot. Redskins fans on social media. was that the their first move was was to back the organization and to attack Trent. I I agree with you. The fact that he would set beg off on an independent invest as you. What do you think I look your first? Your first reaction would probably think well. There's there's something that he hasn't wanted to get out. I I understand that. That's that's normal. That said this is. This is not as clear cut as the good guys and the bad guys here but the bad guy. It's not Trent Williams. Okay I mean and just I'm just I'm so put off by by the reaction by so many fans I so I think you're going to get a lot of those reactions even more than I because you're so you know critical of the team and by the way I barely I haven't defended a much here of the last three or four years. Either you know and by the way they mess mess things up so much already that it's almost like part of me is thinking. Maybe they didn't mess this one up but it doesn't matter because they're gonNA mess the next next one up but I think that you know Trent Williams you don't want I like Trent Williams. I don't want to believe that this was all about money. And he essentially made something into Something that it wasn't just so that he could. You know a mask the fact that this was all about money all along. I do think it was about both of those things. I think there's mistrust there. I think that definitely there was is. There wasn't a sense of urgency relaid for a period of time on this thing But I also really more likely than not think that he he doesn't want this investigation to continue because there's it won't make him look good ultimately. What do you think and not just redskins players? What do you think? NFL L. players belief. That's another part of this. So here's the problem that the team has two things one this was gonNA come out regardless of whether or not he was traded. People just you understand. If he'd gotten if he were in Cleveland or New England or Houston right now he would still held up. Press conference talked about what happened. The team would have still been asked for the independent investigation and this would still be thing they didn't they. Didn't you know they. They would not have been able to avoid all of this by trading him would have come out anyway anyway but you bring up something else that talked about on the show today. Because here's the problem that the team has in the team needs to try to defend itself here especially especially if they believe that they're right and that he's wrong or that it's his truth is far from the truth even if it's partially true is because when he was doing that presser in that locker room. You had his own teammates sitting there. Yelling preach preach preach supportive of him. AM less than a hundred yards away from the people they work for and then players around the league. The perception is that Trent when he accused them of negligence in city doesn't trust them is that it's another redskins thing. They're bad they were wrong. They F- Tim and they're not going to worry about the rest of the story. They have a problem they have this. This is what I you know tainting all along. It doesn't matter what the truth is at this point. The perception is that people are so willing particularly around the league to believe the worst of the Redskins because they've earned that reputation so they you have a big perception problem once he came out and said he doesn't trust the team. Well through you know through Santana and Angelo and it's right and that it's it's a medical situation. They had a big problem with their perception. And at that point on and look I know I've had this argument on social media this week where people say free agents don't care it's always about money. Well you know what health is money for players. If players believe they're going to who an organization that will take care of them right medically that will cost them money. It's the same thing so I mean this will affect free agents since coming to Washington you know so. I do think it's a big deal for the team. I do think if I were the team. By the way I think from a public relations standpoint they do everything so wrong. Actually think they're handling this the right way. I think that they didn't say anything for months would would. Despite the fact that there were others out speaking on behalf of Trent they never said anything other than Bruce saying. I've spoken him and we we know what the truth is right. Kind of thing And then on Friday when they asked for that third party investigation. I think that was the smart thing to do. Because if they had come out and said anything first of all there the provision although they could have said in would not have been in violation of Hippo We heard what trump Williams said. We think there's we believe in a different version of the story We think think we believe in our medical people. We believe that we did the right things. Whatever but I think they did the right thing by asking for this third party because anything they say is believable by anybody but back to what I was just GonNa say based on what you said you know it's like the Suzuki in the Zimmerman thing? Ultimately we came to the conclusion after beating it to death people by the time we get to opening day. They're going to be like whatever ever Lena. Ghost root for Zimmerman root for Suzuki root for the nets and in this particular situation players around the league. If they don't have great options wins if the redskins are one of two or three bad options and they're offering the most money they'll take the money and they'll come here so I mean I don't think so I think some things I arrest underestimating the fact that the union will be telling them about the redskins will and you think the union. What do you think the union feels about Trent begging off of this investigation? What do you think they really feel? I'm not sure what they really feel. What do you think I didn't ask you what your sure? Sure of. What do you think that they did neither disappointed? They may be. I don't know I don't think that that's big a big deal. I think what you're going to see is is as you you. The Union advising its players do not sign with this team. They can't do that I know they can't do. They can't do that but what they'll do it through their message. They already did it. They already did it with their twitter with their with their tweets. Yeah I don't know I mean I think I think the I think this will this will for players will have long lasting impact and my health is money if everything's equal and you're going to go to an organization the station that you think will tell your playing career short because they can't treat you medically that's money. Yeah I mean I I'm glad trance healthy I think that Trent you know through. Initially you know some of the indirect you know that Santana's and the Angelo halls Paul's who were sort of speaking on his behalf. I think he did himself a disservice there. I think that press conference. The other day probably wasn't the smartest thing he's ever done. I think also this organization organization when it comes to this particular player They were very very lenient. They were very understanding when he went through. Two who separate suspensions they. They remained loyal to him. He's a great player. He was young. I understand that they also at the time gave him a blockbuster deal deal. That was front. End Loaded I also think they're incredibly petty at the same time and WanNa win this particular. You know feel like the player. It's it's all about money needs to come back and it's like we said there's his side there's their side and then there's the truth I don't know if we'll ever get to it. I know now without the third party investigation. We're not talking to get to it and that may be convenient for both parties. Maybe ultimately the redskins are sitting back saying saying you know what he doesn't want this to come out and he'll back off for this thing and it'll be good for us for an to come out either but it'll make us you know really what you know what. Trent should've done Tommy. He shouldn't have backed out of this investigation because first of would've taken so long and by the time we got to the conclusion people would have moved on to so many different things that they would have forgotten about all the details to begin with. It's like the McLaughlin. Thank you and I had this debate. I told you that eventually. Firing him with 'cause that they're going to some independent arbitrator is GonNa find that they fired with 'cause justifiably and that he's not GonNa win that arbitration and he's not going to get a senator and he didn't but it took a year and a half and nobody cared by the time that they got to that. Yeah like there. Wasn't this big celebration that the team was right. The team by the way didn't really you know break the break their arms patting themselves on the back publicly about it either Trent probably the NFL pa.. Said Trent if you're worried about this worried about reliving it it's GonNa take a while to get all this anyway and if you do back off this there's GonNa going to be some criticism. People are gonNA wonder why you backed out of it. You should just hang in there. Let him start this process. It'll be a year so by the time the results come out and by the way at that point when you're gonNA be in a new place anyway playing and nobody's GonNa care you know they could still ask for the NFL yes. They could could still do an investigation. But you can't do one without trench cooperates that's right so and by the way Trenton the NFL PA could still decide. Oh we change your mind like they. Don't you think actually the more that I think about it. He should've just said they should've talked him into doing this. It would've taken it's going to take forever. Yeah it will. I mean. They wouldn't even got. They wouldn't have even gotten to the point where they were questioning him until like after the first of the a year you know he'd be an. I don't know maybe maybe could have been resolved quickly. Usually these things take time. I don't know if you followed the whole Russia probe for two years. We won't get political there. Okay what else. That's it for us. That was that that's a full plate right where she said. The Trent Williams thing is a full show our group of shows. Whatever you said? It isn't it isn't it. Isn't with Tommy. The bottom line is this team has stepped stepped into Shitsu so often so many times in the past that even if they didn't in this particular case it doesn't really matter because there's another her pile of it right around the corner that they will step into the essay. That's what they are. They really are a shit organization. Yep that finds their way into this all the time and yes my gut feel is that they probably didn't do a hell of a lot. That was really wrong. End Injurious towards Trent Williams in this particular situation. That's my guess but it doesn't really matter you know it's not gonna it's not GonNa make Dwayne Haskins any better and it's knocking it. The only thing that could lead to because remember. Trent talked about how much she likes. Dan Maybe this is the thing that gets Dan to say. Hey Bruce the hell out of here get get out you have. He likes Bruce

"Baseball tonight the podcast this is the baseball tonight podcast for Thursday October twenty four two thousand Nineteen Broglie producing back in Bristol Troy Farkas thought came the day and of course the games throws wildly down the line Kendrick is into score behind him Cabrera Zimmerman slides into second and it is anoc for Cabrera and it is six to two for the nationals and the Presley pitch at a breaking ball bounce weekly towards third here comes Bregman bare hands throws and he took twenty eight point four seven seconds to circle the bases the longest jog around the bases in this entire postseason according to Long Way and Outta here for a home run up above the Crawford boxes and Washington has a three two lead here in the seven the nationals rally would continue they would load the bases after an intentional walk to want Soto the first intentional walk issued by the Astros the entire scene is lead early my man Dan Schulman on ESPN radio now one of the players in the answers who has struggled in this postseason is Alex so ball mapped it up a bit but it's in the zone for strike free called Andy ending is over and man was Strasbourg fired up top bregman he came to the plate in the bottom of the first against Stephen Strasburg with a runner on base to two in a swing this the way and a swing in a liner into center field for a base in Turner will come into score Soto will come into school Henrik stops its second to eleven to two clinic hitting clinic the nationals are putting on the Astros ballpark Chris Singleton it is scored a base hit he had to go a long way to his left a play would have been tricky but if he picks it up cleanly the first time he probably has a play two outs in the bottom of the sixth inning pinch or Kyle Tucker at the plate we'll be the last picture tonight for Stephen Strasburg runners go three two and was I player from Hawaii to ever hit a world series homer and asks Zouqi Crosstalk and played he looked up at his family in the stands and gave that Mahalo sign with both hands really cool anthony random get the nationals going look back at tournament second at a pitch swung on it hit pretty well to left field back those Brantley he'll turn it off the scoreboard and the lead grows as Washington now leads ten to two and eating just racing around the basis right now one of the fastest homerun trucks you will ever it's Alex pragman lack exchange up above the box off the back wall too chiming in right there so the nationals had a twelve to three lead bottom of the ninth inning a lot of the seats empty and this is what it sounded like another Z.. Pointing into the dugout up above the third base dugout to somebody who might be their family or friends now making his way back into the Dugout the celebration continues for these nationals as they continue to extend the lead on Houston and the two two on the way and a fastball seventh-inning I better to the plate Kurt Suzuki the one on the way to the Washington catcher and a swing and a high drive deep left field so sukey hit it cast verleger in Strasbourg would hold serve into the sixth inning with the score still to all Stephen Strasburg wearing gown had runners on base first and second nine to right center field and that is a basic trotting around third is Soto he'll come into school Kendrick goes first to third on the RBI single by Cabrera Season Howie Kendrick who's at the plate here's a swinging to grab onto the left or Bregman accidental picks it up drops it again and everybody's safe in Iran will store not too for the nationals from James swinging the ball drill deep bright field Adam Eaton wines into the seats for a two run homer over to tie the damn who boy did he need that and this team need that and soon as he hid it he pointed into the Astros Dugout it caroms over to center field and two runs will come into score on the play random clapping his hands a two run double and the national and hasn't been much different these two games Max Strauss and given a heck of Baffert and then we just kind of find a way to manufacture Ron's push runs across it goes into Basit and an RBI for Kendrick entered his fortitude nationals and thereafter the floodgates completely opened and the one two a two two and a swing and a week rambaud awards third charging random fires defers in time to get sick and that's the ballgame the Washington walk out of Houston up to do this I don't know I don't know it's a good question I know we lean on our pitching all year don't you think ballplayer Stephen Strasburg talked about pitching for the first time in the world series you know I think as as a kid you know you have those those it happened to benefit from it you hit a world series home run around the bases you're pointing at someone what was that like can't take that away from me it's digging up two games to die and right after that I talked with automating Adam you guys Space Garrett Cole and Justin Verlander Games wanting to and the story of the play offs worse you mentioned the home run by Suzuki in the seventh inning what was it like in the dugout when he does that to give you guys a late it's I mean service in here with you and having this conversation so you know we're all of emotions you know point to my family like I always do and you know my two boys at home better dreams but at the same time you know you you're playing a game because you love it and I love playing games so I'm gonNA play it as long as I like I guess a million times throughout the playoffs you know they gave you a kind of a crack in the door and he just tried to knock it down and I'm not sure what ending it was it's been such a blur a little relief you know you of course have a lot more but just to break that tie that's been in since the first inning Playoffs are so crazy you know you get to along when this team was down you know I felt like we had starting pitching can keep us in the ball games and once we got healthy things change and we also probably wasn't months ago so fell grade I think you'll just just the fact that you know just to help the team out anyway I can you know whatever it was and manager says he wishes he was a betting man I wish I was a betting man but I'm not I don't I don't really believe in that stuff as long as I can and you know hopefully there's there's championships but you really have to focus on what you can't control and that's so special to me you know I've talked about it I'm on a house money little boy from Springfield Ohio never thought in a million million million years runs around the bathroom both teams that you've ever go spied it's like okay who's GonNa make the first big move here you know once you make that big move thanks pieces start to move and because boys never gave up now right after the game the astros players held a players only meeting to talk about their situation Justin verlander spoken but You know the beginning zoo gets home run there and enroll blaze walks. I think that's really the point game is when roadway walked after that when we kinda got some momentum so Bob what I believe in is is hard work being consistent what we do and stick into our process and we did that said national's come to Houston and they take both a one run affair game walk and I'll blowout win here tonight in game two in the nationals were going honor respect you know he he does some amazing things of the bats as you've seen throughout the playoffs in these Games you know I don't know I think it's warranted though it all out on the field Kurt Suzuki talked about his tiebreaking home run in the seventh inning man I I can't remember last Barrett a ball up like that it felt great for like months ago reporters after that I think the message is just don't don't hang your head you know we've didn't play our best baseball you know he's in Gore way you know when you're not clicking on all cylinders but you know like I said I don't I don't think anybody should go home tonight feeling bad about themselves in seventeen so we've been here for Jeff Bloom is a color analyst for the Astros on television during the regular season he was on with Freddie and Fitz Simons Clutch gene right now in the world series it's been really bad the nationals take games wanted to the world series in Houston let's asleep but you know for them how about the respect for one Sodo the first player intentionally walked by the Astros all year based on what he's done in the first two games we got we don't have time Alex Bregman talked about his level of confidence there's a lot of baseball left in the series and we're going to go to war go off day tomorrow you know we don't have we don't have time to feel bad about ourselves so reset and come in to an environment when I was going to be talking about the astros situation row now you know the wheels are turning in the city of Houston and there is a little bit of panic set again and you know if I always get get some runs on the board and we've ever put some runs up in the later part of the innings it sound from mlb dot com Dave Martinez the nationals owner right now the offense is absolutely you know I hate to say it because I work with these guys but the the offense is absolutely inept it was another over five been a little bit tighter games and it wouldn't be you know twelve to two game and we've made he saw flashes of brilliance you could say that the astros maybe have the ability to turn the the effective and they just keep coming at you you know experienced guys who put the ball in play and that all played out last night would you say you it does ally with Sunday night baseball's Jessica Mendoza on ESPN radio and I remember a conversation you guys had in the clinching game as they finish their sweep over the cardinals and he talked about their offense jess horrific they were injured they they were not the team that you see now but from that date moving forward so we're talking mid may no one has scored more runs with runners in scoring position they left behind guys on base and if they're not able to hit the ball out of the ballpark consistently they're going to have a tough time scoring because they don't have that about you know we all talk about the starting pitching but that offense it may not be as dynamic as the Yankees offense or the Astros offense but man it is highly season to get to this point and I'm not trying to take away from Garrett Cole and Justin verlander but it did not surprise me at all to see them put together Russian with their heads held high ready to go and get after we've lost two games before I remember when we lost three in New York and the world is coming to an end and then next thing you know we're in the world series the bats and as you said the length of their lineup even though doesn't get the same attention they've been doing it for a long time I feel like that the two plate appearances but they've gone under the radar because of that start they were in the whole they weren't one of the better teams to begin with and so no one was giving them the attention in on honestly because they've got crazy and be ready to play baseball we can you know we have re ballclub. We've had plenty of downsides season obviously it's magnified in the World Series folks here in Houston are less pumped after what we saw on games one and two of the world series Look at you know I listen to you and BOOB. Do the National Championship series today is in the studios of get up jess good morning to you good morning from New York City pumped the May turn out to embody the entire world series happened in Game One you had Garrett Cole on the mound the best pitcher in baseball and he's facing wants Soto I want US had a better run differential no one's better record I mean this is ben the best offensive team and you could argue a lot of other areas as well but they flat out hit buster because they were hit hard but because of where they were hit in the wheels were just coming off then there was the wild pitch and it just felt I mean you even go back to Justin Berliner I felt like if you're gonNA take a Gif of the entire game of like what it felt like to be in astro or an astros fan it's just berliner came off the mound fell down and then threw the ball office I mean honestly this has been a team buster and it's been so much talked about nineteen thirty one start but if you go back to that may twenty third dates basically I fifty games of the season where they just Strasburg in Corbin insurer the reason they were winning in everyone's minds was because of their starting staff I also look back to the games that we called the N. L. D. S. L. C. S. the that I've talked to in Houston has ever seen a left-handed hitter hit a home run before that embodies what we've seen so far from the Astros and the nationals where it feels like for the first nine the nationals have gotten punch right in the mouth and you could see a total meltdown in the late innings last night from them in a way that you don't typically see from the Astros think of it as being quite as good as the Astros rotation but now that we're into the three and four spots there's a decided advantage Anibal Sanchez in game three and then in game four you're probably GonNa Patrick Corbin Day Martinez has announced that yet so now the astros have to get back into the series while playing in Washington do you think they can do it thing like Mono Mono I'm coming at twenty euros right exactly I'm GonNa Throw Ninety seven ninety eight ninety nine I'm GonNa blow you away on three pitches and in one game because there was a lot and boy what a big mountain they have to client they're going to get back into this series in game three they'll start that cranky was totally uncharacteristic this is not a team and you know to Alex Bregman credit you know the two big plays that he had at third base I mean both of those were base hits no matter what not but I love the way and even the game last night Fox zooming in on his face and you could just feel like you know calls that he wasn't getting it wasn't just like the big moments it was like every shen I mean that like what is going on it almost just felt like this is such an uncharacteristic game for them all together and they can take it all and say hey we did anyways so if you reset and just okay game three is like a game one and your number one pitcher is on the Mound Zach Rinky has the ability I mean shoot are- moment mattered every pitch and you could just see it on his face just the look if you didn't get a call especially buster once he hit about ninety three ninety four pitches I don't know if you noticed eighteen thirty three that place is GonNa be Rockin and I just for the Astros to be able to come in there get the lead early quite the place down and then to out this in a big spot in the seventh inning Aj hinch the Astros manager chose to pitch and he ran down with runners on base not been good this October in game four they're going to have to have a bullpen game in on the other hand you have the nationals the you know the front part of their rotation going into the series we did is let's talk about three individual players i Stephen Strasburg I love where he is in his career and I love getting this opportunity to men on because he didn't have his stuff John smoltz talked about the fact that his mechanics were starting to fail him because he was getting tired so the battle that you have to go through when you're wants to walk away nodding his head and in the next plate appearance he hits a home run not only just a home run but he hits it up onto the train tracks a place where nobody alias failing you to mentally get yourself over that Hump is something that we've never seen before from Stephen Strasburg and want Soto last night and if you think of it like Garrett Cole representing the Astros once Oh to representing the Washington nationals and in the first plate appearance gear co bullies them and it sorta like that this is what they expect of Cranky and even though he has struggled and he struggled and hasn't been as consistent in the postseason I mean let's remind everybody that he has the ability at any point to be this astros team went and got Zig Zag Rinky for a reason and we've seen them make decisions like acquiring Garrett Cole like acquiring Justin Verlander in the past the difference that it's made the astros issued an intentional walk that tells you how good want Soto is it's insane honestly like pick your poison because you know we can't sit here and say who may win the National League Mvp Award or pitching to Juan Soto and he decided to intentionally walk once Oto the first time all year I mean I I do I I think that one of the biggest things that astras are going to have to do buster is get the lead early and this is the first time a world series game has ever been played in DC since nineteen pitcher buster that they had a beat to get to this point and the Clayton Kershaw and the Jack Flare Dese Review Walker Bueller. I mean there's been so many pitchers that they face even in the Post Anthony Rendon so those two guys the most to most important guys in this lineup but it just shows you that at any point one could be chosen over the but they're just became this will inside of him that I I hadn't seen before and not that it didn't exist but you could argue this was the most important pitches from the but an all-star five the last six years cy young he'll be in the hall of fame this is the pitcher they need from him in one game in its game three before we get this managerial news foyer you knew that the astros were going to have a newfound respect for him after what he did in game one with a home run and the double in the single but changeover to a local ballpark this kind of grungy muddy field and I think it was in Wisla and Kurt Sukey in walks over and we shake hands ought to be in this spot where he can be part of a championship after everything that went on in two thousand Twelve Amanda Passion that you saw him out last night it was pretty cool it was cool it because he wanted to keep open the opportunity to have first base open and intentionally walk wants Soto he essentially had a choice between pitching anthony rundown they want Sotos better reknown better I mean those two guys I mean it's it's they are on equal levels and in different moments in clearly as much as we and it was something that you don't really see a lot from him he someone that's been known for being very stoic very quiet he he's not that these the opposite of Sherzer when you think about fist pump and he is now who he was just the biggest smile the nicest person a leader someone and that part of it has been so valued in his career up home runs if you're going to get to him you didn't expect it from Suzuki and there's been a lot of question as to whether should Kurt Suzuki continuously catch be kind of on a feel that from different nats players but in that moment the homerun especially against for Orlando and even though that's his weakness that's for landers thing he's GonNa give basically floats around the bases and coming across home plate and giving them a hollow sign to his family up in the stands it was special and honestly I felt like that entire game you could where he leaves the nationals and then they reacquire him because they know he's good with pitching staff and my God he's done a great job in this series blocking balls in the dirt wjr yeah it's not a criticism of AJ. It's just an observation that the first intentional walk all year for the Astros is given to Juan Soto at last talked about depth of this lineup in the Kurt Suzuki's that have gotten big hits this team went and got another wildcard game was it for one so they wouldn't have got out of the Division series of Lee Curtis Zouqi so happy form last night actually I met him when he was playing in the minor leagues was doing a story in Maui on Shane Victorino and the other and that was a huge moment even though it all kind of unraveled after that for a young player it doesn't turn twenty one until Friday and that's not a major hit the day on Wednesday with game two of the world series from Houston the nationals and the Astros the nationals having one game one in the top of the first inning facing Justin verlander the main catcher for this team when the stolen base has been a huge problem for them when they're you know you can pinpoint all the weaknesses and yet they have stuck with him because of the relationship he's had with us so cool even through the runner out which he does right now so cool the sea have that moment where he hits the home run and pitchers and what he does for this team okay three managerial situations I wanna get observations and all three from you over the next three minutes news broke that the the Elise are and act in a higher Joe Girardi what's your take on that to me it's a good fit I think if you're the Phillies as you pivot away from Gabe Kappler you WanNa get come forth and you know being able to give an opportunity to possibly be a manager for the mets all right jess thanks for doing this great to talk with you yeah buster see you soon -perience that understands how to handle the veterans how to handle the young players and Joe Girardi is that guy the cubs make it official hiring what the mets are looking for during this process and of course a couple of names that have been out there and the mets talk to Carlos Beltran Grassi understands this is something that was a marriage it's it's meant to happen who knows how long it will will last like anything but I know the super excited about it it is the perfect fit and I feel like like anything you never know the shelf life for any manager anymore it doesn't matter how good you are what you win at any point you could get fired so I the mets are talking with candidates now I think a third round of interviews Eduardo Perez Carlos Beltran seemed to be emerging as the top two it doesn't understand you know at times you know when certain bullpen guys are all the things that they went through with Gabe that they felt like okay we can kind of like take off the training wheels and eventually get to a point I don't WanNa do that now they are at a point where they have to win they have the talent they've been able to get the acquisitions and the fact that they didn't make it to the postseason this year was was a huge failure just in fact connection even if it doesn't seem like on paper this is the perfect person and so I think that's what's been exciting is is seeing the variance of people that have have come and I can't ask you and I won't ask you about specific names of those involved in the mets search were manager you work for the mets but I wanna ask you about what you've learned about five years ago and Dave Roberts walk into that room and just knocked them all over with his passion and with his knowledge and with his ability to convince them that he should be the manager so I think you never it's kind of everyone and you know being able to get everyone in the interview room and we've heard that in the past with teams like the dodgers it seemed like gave Kappler was the dude for them member being in Williamsport when was that back in August and just talking to him about okay so when you're moving to Chicago you know just giving him you know crap for all Ross manager it felt like since about the first week of September that we pretty much thought knew this was going to happen the cubs turning someone that they know what do you think Oh yeah I mean Burski Sarah Legs reporter and a producer Mlb Dot Com and Sarah before we get to what happened in the world series last night into your numbers of all the personnel that they have and I think they really believe that the missing piece is that manager role to be able to get all of these talented players together so you want someone with this I want to go into it thinking okay these are top people I think it's more of like let's get as many people as we can in the room and then from there decipher like who's really the right fit even if there's in a kind of I mean you and I would even give Rossi you know soon as it became more apparent that Joe Madden might not be returning I just remember a ton of conversations even see kind of the Plethora of people that they're looking at I think there's a huge variance in it's not just going to be just the traditional or just the ones that you would think but who is a mets fan which guide you want Oh my gosh that is quite the curve all I I don't even know how to answer that I as you know time and well respected player in our colleague Cuarto Peres what What do you see the mets search yeah I mean I think it's been exciting to be here in New York and just be worked very closely with says and still have in doing some of the stats for games and stuff and I'm a huge fan of him as a person and managers get selected for this day and age and I think he checks all of those boxes and again nothing against Carlos Beltran I I do think you'd be great manager and I will give I think that Beltran definitely could be a great manager but obviously I I have to say I mean just knowing the way he works the way he goes about his business we talked about it I think last week and he such a great people person such a great communicator you know you talk about the intangibles that are you know sort of what we see a lot of mother credit on here my mother my mother will make some sometimes outlandish statements about who she thinks will be teams next manager every now and then of it and I feel like I just like being able to like all right you can't talk about it now but you know this is something on your radar you know that this is something that's a real possibility and he would just get that huge grin on his face doing a little bit more about how he does his job his current job one thing I'm really curious about is is the offer the financial offer and how already going to be paying Mickey callaway his salary the last year and if the mets role in with one of these minimum manager first year type contract offers how do I don't know what her criteria is exactly what I give her credit that when Carlos Beltran retired she told me he was going to be a manager one day and she thought he was going to be like the next hundred thousand dollars you know if you're Carlos maybe that may not be as attractive to to somebody who hasn't made that kind of money that he has in his career we'll just you have to wait and see all right let's play the numbers game number three number three seventeen so the nationals have combined for seventeen runs to feel about this you're talking about a player who during his career made over two hundred million dollars and if the mets role in because in two thousand and twenty manager after Calloway this was a couple years ago and not based on anything but I will per credit there especially because their birthday was yesterday but I I would go with it were no just Carla feel about that now I haven't asked that question directly maybe he's going to be totally fine with that but I do wonder about that you know if they roll in and say your first year so far in this world series and of course they haven't even played it at home yet that's the third most runs by any road team in the first two games of a world series ever the giants and in both of those instances and I thought this was fascinating the high scoring team actually split those first two games and it was sort of because of one blowout game number two is eight than nationals have now one eight straight postseason games in twenty nine thousand nine that's tied for the longest winning streak by any team in a single post so we've talked about this pretty much all year with the Astros but to win against them you basically have to be either burland or call that is the way we have worded it the nationals reason with the two thousand fourteen royals two thousand five white sox and two thousand four red sox no team has ever won nine straight games in a single postseason which the just to win starts by both of them back to back this is the third time all year including the playoffs at the Astros have lost consecutive games that's will attempt to do in the first world series game in DC since nineteen thirty three on Friday and they've also won six straight road games which is tied for the second longest road winning streak in a single postseason the one thousand nine hundred sixty Yankees won eight straight road games which is the record number one number one is three all right Sarah thanks for doing this we will talk to you tomorrow sounds great thanks so much for having me to the world series I talked with game one starter Max that were started by Colin Burland in either order the other instances where in June in Cincinnati and in April at the Rangers so this is the first time all year that they'd done that back home games and sure you can say that clang in the postseason obviously makes it more likely but I still think that's pretty notable and I'm not a big wins person the only teams was more runs in the first two games of world series on the road the nineteen sixty donkeys with twenty in pittsburgh and the one thousand nine hundred thirty six years with nineteen Colfax in nineteen sixty five and they're the first such duo of twenty game winners to do so at home according to stats which is pretty cool and of course the dodgers came back it's fan perspective what's cool about playing in the world series I mean all the chips are on the table I mean this is where all bets are off urge her in a fun conversation give Max one of the cool things about you is is that if you were playing baseball you'd still be a big sports fan so from that perspective from to win that nine hundred sixty five series in seven games so give me a yes or no can the astros come back after losing to not the way they've been looking the best team in baseball over the last three years total right like the red sox were great last year but overall it has been the astros so if anyone can do it I suppose it has to be them talked when everything went wrong on the field for them if feels really hard to to believe that they can come back right now but this is the team that's been like basic just in every pitch China for every little thing and just be a student of the game immerse yourself in those situations such you I just this is in this situation so that you're always thinking about the game and just try to keep moving I'm just basing I'm just I can't sit still so tell the story honestly I it really doesn't feel like it I just read that Colfax and Drysdale Stop the way they've been hitting with runners in scoring position and the way that seventh inning at the end of the series against the dodgers when you're out in the bullpen and you make the mad sprint onto the field that would be part of the celebration but you're all alone yeah and but I thought this was pretty cool so the first pair of twenty game winning teammates to lose games one and two of a world series since the dodgers Don Drysdale and Sandy Dan I got another Faux Pas about want Sotos talent that we saw on display in game one yeah he's a special player I mean you know with our rests pitching what we can do is just a different game cameras are on you on the day's you pitch and they're on you on the day's you don't pitch in the dugout is anybody there isn't a game and he only continues to get better but the best thing is I mean he's a home employer you know he he's not about the attention or you know how many likes have there handshakes they have their whole routine after a win so it just means Britain and by myself so it's just one of those funny things that here we go again this season you can just sense it's a different game which you've been watching in the regular season so for me it's always fun to watch the other sports as well and they're big moments in their championship their hair by the age of thirty five thirty five you're still a young dude at that point you're going to start losing your hair then think about it a year from now it's all gone in everybody used to think we've seen it now for basically two years now of what he can do at the play what he can do with bad how he can make adjustments you mean he's he's you have to have your instincts and so for me I always like watching a game very little little nuance of the game and talking to dosier other guys on the bench of like hey how would you run and so it's not surprising that soda was able to make that adjustment and you know that's just one of things that when you watch a game fifteen twenty minutes perfect for the morning commute it's hosted by Monica who is one of my favorite people and today's episode it is about this troubling Astros Front office you try to do during the course of game when you're not pitching in the dugout in very season or postseason he post what are you gonNa do tonight facing around everywhere three fastballs each one a little faster than the next and the first at bat and then sort of makes adjustments second plate appearance in that's something that you know espn right now it gets started for just five bucks while supplies last this would cost hundreds if you went to the doctor Arora Pharmacy go to four hymns dot com slash ESPN on twitter? He's more about just going out there grinding getting better on defense that sounds more like one soda to me and so that's why I love a bottom how much he appreciates the game here to our new ESPN daily podcast. It's something that I'm really excited about it something that a lot of us here at ESPN are really excited about it's a daily podcast episode home fires defers in time to get Maricic and that's the ballgame the Washington nationals accused in and they take folks it's Thursday October twenty four and this is espn daily presented by Dell Small Business Biens Jeff Passan explains why he wasn't surprised with the Astros response says about the team's executive culture and what might happen next I mean at Times Jeff you're in Houston right now we're in the middle of the world series but everyone's still talking about an incident that happened in the Astros clubhouse on Saturdays and in the middle of the clubhouse is an assistant general manager for the Astros named Brandon Taubman just working on your instincts I think that's the thing that you get this deep into postseason crowds or is it gets deafeningly loud it's just you along with your thoughts what happened so right after the Astros clinched the American League pennant there's a huge celebration going on relation that we're going to talk with Keith Law about here in a few moments but first we just WanNa play quick excerpt from today's episode to get a little more insight and to see if you guys like it air in sexual wellness for men prescription solutions backed by science written by Dr in delivered to your door thanks to science baldness can be optional good a four hymns dot com the league pennants assistant general manager Brandon Taubman addressing three female reporters shouted quote thank God we got a sooner I'm in the second game for both of them which was interesting and of course the nineteen sixty eight years lost the series one thousand nine hundred sixteen one at number two breath everybody's wanting to give everything for the team I mean you see it across worse in other sports. NBA NFL IHL that you get soon as you start losing your hair that's it it's genetics it's father time and there's nothing you can do about it guess what that's wrong for him dot com is a one stop shop or hair loss skin and while he was still serving a seventy five game suspension for domestic violence incidents and when brand taubman out on Monday two days later the astros don't comment in it but then they release a statement afterward the Astros in a statement we did the right thing by going out and trading for someone who had been accused of what he had been accused of and so the story comes out of this he was essentially gloating and using the opportunity to say to the group of women who were standing there about him and their introduction to him wasn't great last night sports illustrated reported that on Saturday night in the clubhouse after the Astros clinched the had this to say story posted by sports illustrated is misleading and completely irresponsible and Astros player being asked questions about a difficult outing but when you when you understand the Houston Astros are it really wasn't that ridiculous at all room to Roberto Suna who had happened to blow the save at night and the whole thing Meena on its face was ridiculous or executive was supporting the player during a difficult time his comments had everything to do about the game situation that just occurred and nothing else they aw what I expected I don't know that many people expected that for the Astros to look like the overmatched old glad we got a soon it now a- sooner is Roberto sooner the Astros Closer Huston acquired him last year at the trade deadline the F.

ESPN FOUR HYMNS DOT COM SLASH ESPN Keith Orange wanted to give a quick shot possibly probably going to win the MVP this year to have the worst sort of the worst possible moment to have such a brutal miss well to misplaced with the first one is the one that really full details safety information one of the scariest things that can happen to a guy is that first morning you wake up you look in the mirror and you start to realize you're going thin top two out of every three guys are going to start losing all I wanna I wanna get you know hug everybody is fast as possible so as soon as we saw that ball for me I'm on a desperate I didn't realize in some respects this series was encapsulated in the two plate appearances the first two-for-one Soto I bat this was Garrett Cole basically even how funny has with it so he's great for a clubhouse you know the mono a mono battles with a hitter in a batter it was remarkable for me to see Garrett Cole he's a guy who's really behind the scenes he's the number two man behind the General Manager Jeff Liu now the public doesn't know very much I want to say that Brannagh Tomen wasn't talking to the reporters themselves he was yelling across the mm-hmm we're the Houston Astros you're not an issue and then in the next plate appearance he comes out with a fastball again and boom they got zing two games at home where you had to figure kind no matter what what was the worst probable outcome for the Astros you've got so my career I mean I've caught myself getting caught that were hey sometimes you might be a bull Fassulo by somebody but these guys are so good that they can make adjustments in the next pitch it's homer reince team and they do have a lot of good players and now I think my question is well how the Astros players react after getting knocked in the Chin yeah to matters take anything away from the nationals who are tremendous team I just am surprised at how poorly the astros seemed to play in the in the last night that six seventh for the Astros to just sort of appear to come a bit of glued for players like Alex Bregman who's experienced manager and they do they made that very clear I felt like Philadelphia was they wanted to go the opposite direction and they don't WanNa have you know someone that's there that makes wrong moves to start I think it it looked like he was just kind of overthrowing over rotating a little bit and it cost him a little bit of location rolling more than just the nationals Atherton's assistant jammed drew I refer treatment reporters over domestic violence issue the team immediately rose defense here's a espn daily take a listen or yeah and this is without baseball insider Jeff Passan another two to swing in a row bold awards third charging render scouts for ESPN he rates for ESPN on television for ESPN and Keith. You've been watching the world series what you take away from Games one and two yeah that was Cole and Burland or do you really think you're gonNA lose both of those games at home I wonder to what extent I don't think this is true for the astros necessarily but I think a lot of folks in may be a little overwhelmed team and I'm not saying they are just saying that's kind of what they looked like those first couple of games for Garrett Cole who'd been so dominant so far in the postseason rations and just kind of relate that demand is what it's like in Baseball Baseball's it in some ways it's just as crazy as the other sports because of trying to serve his dominance over young talented player and this isn't a criticism it's just it's more of an observation he blows three fastballs past the first two games and it gets feed you that against a team like the nationals. There's pretty good chance they're gonNa make you pet I gotta say and I mentioned suggest Mendoza that I feel like that away from somebody else's mistakes and try to add to your games you don't make that mistake Max thanks all right thank you prescription bronx required online physician consultation and only available if the physician determined prescriptions appropriate sequence the Chin and in these first two games they punch right in the Chin by a team which may not be as dynamic it may not have as many future hall of famers but it is an expense it's more than just a conversation gets the weekly dish with Keith Law and Biogas Cap on baseball tonight naked you know I didn't WanNa ask anybody like hey you know we're going to sprint him soon as third outs made I in my mind as soon as that house made like I cannot wait to get to the dogs Shubin six up to with game two in the books the world series heads to wash but the Astros juris the Astros because there's been so much talk about the astros this year especially down the stretch on clean a lot of people from fan graphs and others media fans etc may have underestimated the nationals because they were a wildcard team because like you said they're not quite as the famous Ross baseball tonight the podcast angry at how at the initial incident how poorly this has been handled since since the incident that PR statement the first one the initial your hands now were handling this the astros could have just come right up front said we're putting Todman on some sort of administrative leave while we investigate further actually they're gonNA teach this in business school programs for years to come about how not to handle a negative pr that's because it has been so I can't believe this but this story continues to take on even more layers yesterday Jeff Luneau had comments published in the Houston Chronicle did that when you read that was what do you mean you don't know what the antennas you're his boss you can call them in your office and say brand L. Incident and to steer that awful statement that they put out Jeff told the Houston Chronicle what we really don't know is the intent behind the inappropriate comments instead you have jeff still trying to well we don't really know what happened give me a break for me one more reason for Major League baseball too need we may never know that because the person who said them and the people heard them at least up to this point have different perspectives and of course the obvious reaction quite patient you're not going to just blow a lot of velocity by these guys they're not going to chase to the extent that maybe a lot of other teams on were they impune Stephanie Scenes Reputation and claimed that she fabricated a story that maybe this happen but it totally wasn't the way that she said it was the major league baseball kind of had to step in because we're in the middle of the world series here and what is Major League baseball dealing with they're dealing with this todman controversy about the situation and this is what the general manager of the team and keep in mind this is someone who had the power to dictate their reaction to the some of the other teams that the Astros have faced their their lineup I think he's more disciplined and more patient than what the Asif as so far Hanky and game six he yells at a group of reporters about Roberto Soon and thank God we gotTa Soon I'm so glad we gotTA SUNA coming with a hammer on this situation what do you think yes I agree well that last point to that MLD talked a little bit to folks in Mlb Hor justifiably poorly handled from the start by the Astros in particular and I don't know who exactly their research responsible but if I major league baseball I'm coming in saying yeah this is and and they've been trying to walk back some of that with statements put out from Todman from Jim Crane their owner well then the next day after sports illustrated breaks story they put out this absurd statement in which they essentially impune the integrity of the reporter and challenge whether or not this all happen within what was your intent Brandon does one answer you tell them to clean out his office right and you can find out what his intent is ignores the fact that this nationals particularly national lineup I feel like the conversation are the nationals has been around the top three starters but their lineup is still pretty deep it's talk about it if they don't win the world series so then then you're in a different conversation this is the best team to not win a world series which is very unfortunate but seeing everyone's waiting to see if he's going to get fired now they're dealing with a major league umpire who appeared to threaten to start a civil war on twitter yesterday none of this is about the action not making you know apologize to the reporters and never and just make no other comment this story probably would have gone away instead they just keep throwing more and more fuel on the fire ah the Astros for obviously Todman for starting this but also the Astros for how they've handled it since the initial yeah and Major League Baseball Warriors twenty-five bathroom right those are big stories and that's not

Losers pay form of litigation as Jonathan corridors in Reynolds Ville West. Virginia maybe we cut down on frivolous lawsuits. Look to British. Have that system where the judge judge if you sue somebody in a ridiculous way. The judge say you pay all court costs and lower costs and that does cut down on frivolous lawsuits and we should have that here but because lawyers and attorneys organizations is so powerful. They give so much money to political candidates. We're never going to have it here. That's our corrupt system. Mark Stanley Moorpark. California got my United States trump book.

The Sleeper and the Bust Episode: 743 Positional Reviews: C and 1B

"Seven forty three of the sleeper and the bus it is Monday September thirtieth and the regular season is over and I'm your host Paul. I'm not going to cry not but it is over and it is very depressing. We no longer have the the everyday grind of baseball. The playoffs APPS are about to start it. I'm actually really really really excited about the plan. Do you think it's kind of a wide open playoff. I understand why the favorites are the favorites Houston the dodgers there's Yankees but I think everybody is beatable. I I think you can you can craft a scenario where every team name could win at all and it would make sense it. It doesn't require all these you know ten twelve fifteen ifs if this if this if this if this you know there's there's a few for every team. There are few were for the dodgers Astros Yankees. Maybe even like the braves but I think game in the wildcard teams whoever wins the wildcard game could thwart the Astros or dodgers but anyway that's that's for the playoffs. We're GONNA put a little bit of a bow on the regular season here and what I'm GonNa do is I'm going to go through the player Raider on Rasbol at each position talk a little bit about position and move on to the next one here just kinda cover one through whatever of where they finished highlight some of the surprises some of the talk about some of the guys maybe were disappointments and say one through whatever 'cause it's GonNa be different by position and of course if you've listened before you know this but if not I use the racquetball player over our auction calculator on the pods specifically because they number the rows and it's much more convenient for potty on the Paul something up and then you know I have to Kinda eyeball always either the eighth or I have to count on on the rasbol player. I just say Boom J. T. Rowe Muto number one catcher and it's right there and and it's just for an eas situation the two aren't that different. I think if you if you run through the auction calculator versus the you're not gonNA see the vast differences in in how they rank things so. I don't think it's going to be problematic from that and but let's get into it at catcher and we're GonNa talk about the top fifteen here we talk a lot about fifteen and team leagues. I think that the depth that kind of covers a lot of a lot of people's leagues and not only that but you know it is the NFC main event set up which is a format that we really like here now. A Lotta Leagues are two catcher including those leagues. I'M NOT GONNA do thirty catchers though I I'm not trying to boy ought to tears right off the top secondly. I just don't WanNa talk about thirty eight years so we're GonNa talk about the top fifteen here. I'll just run them down and then we'll get into some specifics wchs at one zero two years Monte Grondahl three Mitch Garver four Christian Vasquez Five Gary Sanchez six Willson contreras heiress seven James McCann eight Omar Narvaez Nine Wilson Romo's ten Travis d'arno Eleven Hor Hail Farro Twelve Roberto Perez Thirteen Yati Molina Fourteen Robinson Torino's and fifteen Kurt Suzuki. I WANNA start that right. Quick at the bottom there Kurt Kurt Suzuki again putting up a fantasy viable season in most leagues not you know if you're ten team twelve team one catcher okay he might have had had some bouts of usefulness but the the majority of leagues us to catchers and if even if you're a ten team using two that's twenty so he's right. They're seventeen. homers sixty three runs as a part timer again Kurt Suzuki Man Ages thirty three to thirty five. He's been credible. It's been one of the best catchers out there you add those three seasons up. It's a thousand six plate appearances of two seventy two three thirty five four eighty five with forty eight homers so he's averaging sixteen a year really impressive stuff Kurt Zouqi but going back to the top real quick so the consensus top four or we'll go five generally generally in some order but more or less this order was jt Romito Gary Sanchez he has Monte Grindal Wilson Controllers and Wilson Rama's and those guys panned out. I mean they were all in the top nine none of those could you really say did you end or didn't deliver. They might've love felt fallen short of what you pencil then when you were when you were figuring out your projections and all that but that's a different scenario versus did they did they bus did did they hurt you know if you paid for the catcher out front and those were the four that you had to pay for everybody else it dropped down a level to Molina and Posey who I was definitely only passing on and then after that it was a free fall but those five panned out and and even Molina thirteenth and he was going six that's not not great but then Posey was was the weird thing about catchers we knew coming in that it was those top five or bust and and yet it didn't necessarily play out that way because a lot of catcher depth emerged in season but it was from avenues that we could have never expected. I mean Mitch garber finishing third listen. He showed a little bit with the bat last year and I'm sure some of you out there where believers and you got him and that's awesome and your to Catcher League or you're a Al only that you were in. I can believe that I believe that there was some folks who were actually in on Mitch garber early. They didn't really need to see the the fast breakout to a jumping he had seven homers and a one Oh four plus last year as a part timer and you might have said Hey. That's a little something at catcher. I'll take it he hit the ground running did in in April and it was clear from that point that he needed to be on roster five homers ten rabies three forty eight four hundred seven sixty one on his slash line from that point on you're like I gotta get him and then he had another big big month in May and even as a part timer sharing with Castro Astro and asked the deal even mixing in here and there he was worth it was worth the craziest thing about his season thirty. One homers is that it came in three hundred and fifty nine appearances he never really fully took over the catching duties. we started to gain more timeshare share in the second half of the season but he doesn't have a twenty game month and that's that's impressive that he was able to do all that in such a concentrated amount on of time for Mitch Garber just an absolutely brilliant season and you know he might have finished number one with more volume sixty seven rabies and seventy runs because of the three hundred and fifty nine point appearances but he was brilliant Christian Vasquez was somebody that you know. I don't know how you could've seen that. Come in even if you had a little love formed back in two thousand seventeen coming in then coming into eighteen he was such a flop in eighteen that I don't know how you would have bought back in early just to give you an idea he went from Christian Vasquez went from a one Oh excuse uh ninety two. Wr See with with a to ninety average in two thousand seventeen so the average was holding him up the ninety two WRC pastas special but seven steals too so he was kind kind of giving you some different things catcher a few steals and some batting average on equality team so he was running. These weren't too bad for being at the bottom of the lineup on a good good team but then like I said a total flop last year forty two. WRC posse cut fifty points off he hit just two seven three homers four steals so coming into into this year no way no way you're in on him. Maybe maybe maybe maybe maybe twelve thirty male only where it's so deep just Gimme a catcher on a good team who's going to play and I'll just try to get what I get out of the volume and he didn't do anything in April Vasquez hit two twenty two with four homers. Nobody was picking him up then and then you might have even been a little bit cautious in May at 373 with three homers but were you even buying in on on that by the time it by the time you maybe looked at him to pick them up. You probably were thinking well. This hot STREAKS GONNA end as far as the batting average goes but if you if you hung around from that that point on we'll call it we'll call it. We'll call it mid May and let's say you Kinda got in 'cause by May Seventeenth. He was hitting three eleven. Let's say after that three hit game against Houston you like listen. I'm going to go ahead and take a shot here. I need a catcher my buster. Posey's not working out. You know Danny Johnson. Sorry I hyped him. He was worthless. you're saying I got to cut somebody. I'M GONNA go ahead and go with baskets here if you jumped on him from that point on from mid-may on to sixty six eighteen homers fifty seven rabies fifty runs and three steals in four hundred five point appearances that's pretty good from Vasquez so he was the number four Guy Sanchez contrary us they. Did you know what they were supposed to. They were they were strong. Catching assets containers could have had a brilliant year if he hadn't been derailed by injury. It still was a really strong season. James McCann was one. We've talked about multiple times on the Potter wrote about him. It it was so it was so fraudulent you were just waiting waiting waiting waiting for the other shoe to drop and it eventually did because it was a batting average you know Bab fueled run that that kind of had him out of his mind and I wonder when people pick it up if you picked him up. Did you jump in early in like late April when he was putting multi hit games together or we like Nana that's bs that's Bs but then he puts up three more multi hit games in his first five of May and then did you buy and then or did you buy after the four hit game at Toronto on. May the eleventh and you really like okay. He's in three seventy six. This is stupid. I just I just need to get in here. Let's say you bought in then that didn't go well for you now at least not from batting average standpoint which is probably what you were hoping to get from McCain because his average was so strong even acknowledging that the VP or excuse me that the Bab was off the charts. I'm sure some folks like well can hit to sixty for me the rest of the week and he had to seventy five live if you bought in and these are arbitrary right I'm just trying to guess of when people would have realistically bought in but but if you bought in after the forehead game at Toronto James McCann you gotTa to forty nine the rest of the year but you did get fourteen homers forty-nine rabies forty-seven runs is that pays us out to twenty four eighty four eighty one respectively which is damn good catcher over a full season so he was not killing you even even if you bought in there and didn't get the batting average but he ended up finishing seventh. We all knew that it was going to fall off though that's the thing there was no doubt that McCain could not hold told the batting average. Let's go to Oman obvious because he is somebody who you might have bought in early on probably even at the draft for some of you folks in to catch I can fully fully fully believe that because he put up a decent little decent little season last year you folks definitely keyed in on on Narvaez last year but let's just go standard five by five to seventy five with a one twenty two opium plus excuse me. WRC pause last year including nine homers so that's that's a little something and you're probably like okay. I can get him as my c two. I think he was a popular seat to pick Narvaez was the nineteenth catcher off the board at pick three. Oh three three. That's that's Primesee to range there. Maybe you God maybe you got one of the big dogs early so that was a top one fifty fifty pick that you had to spend to get Real Muto Sanchez Grondahl contrivance Rama's top fifty if you're talking real Mutahar Sanchez and then between one twenty five in one on forty five for Grondahl contraire Romo's but then you're gonNA wait right. If you're going to get the big dog you're definitely waiting at that point and pick three hundred three hundred something to get Narvaez is not too bad that's waiting perfectly fine and I think he really keyed in on on taking advantage of the ball because it has gamed it and really change except for one thing he lifted the ball more Narvaez Narvaez jumped from a twenty nine percent to forty one percent five already. Everything else is pretty static. A little bit of the poll percentage jumped from thirty five to thirty nine. That's that's that's not a super consequential move. It's really the five alright so jumped up a bit. Maybe saw the ball was finds like hey. I can get in on this dude I can. I can do a little something here. He's a left-hander so he was getting on the strong side of the platoon it really paying down. He crushed his full season numbers to seventy eight twenty to fifty five sixty three. That's Ribian runs fifty five and sixty three against righties to eighty nine with twenty forty five and fifty three so he was really doing the damage against that's right for Omar Narvaez. He hit the ground running big April so even if you didn't draft him if he was still available I could see people buying in pretty quickly because you could look back and say oh he was actually pretty good. Last year. I could even see one catcher leagues again. I'll use the name Danny Johnson somebody hyped and I was in on as the catcher off the board. Maybe like a Wellington Castio Yawn Gums Mike Sannino these guys. You're cutting early. Let's say you jumped in late April on on on Narvaez after after two homers in two games April eighteenth and nineteenth. I'll duty to more homers. That's five for the month. Let me get in on this and now let's just say you kind of had them. From that point on to seventy three three fifty four forty five with seventeen homers forty three rabies and forty seven runs a a damn fine season even if you've got in late and missed five of the homers Narvaez still paid off the waiver pickups quite well and and he was the ninth catcher this year nine for Wilson Ramos not going to do too much on him because you know we had expectations and he panned out travel star. No was was interesting because does he finished tenth feel like he was he was a guy of flourishes so he might not have benefited the waiver pickup folks quite as much because if you kind of miss the the giant runs. Did you really get anything now. He was a nothing burger for the first two months of the the season. You weren't even considering d'arno in any capacity whatsoever he started with the mets. Did Nothing got rid of. They got rid of him. In April he was on the dodgers for literally a game. A one at bat gone dodgers sent him over Tampa Bay. He didn't really do anything for them. For the rest of May he kind of languished over there he had let's see fourteen games one seventy five to forty four to twenty five nothing nothing hits the ground running in June but he's not playing consistently so while he did have hits in his first four games of the month they were kind of spread out but three were multi hit games including cooking three homers so let's say that's when you jumped it okay. He opens the month going seven for fourteen with three three homers and you're like okay. I'm trying to catch lightning in a bottle here and see if I can get anything that would have been the time because you could still you still would have gotten and the electric July which isolate here in a moment but just from July twelfth on June twelfth. Excuse me June twelfth after four great games to open the month. Let's just you say you said you know what Darnall was. A prospect. I need catcher catcher sucks. I'm GONNA throw him as my seat to you. GotTa to sixty four three twenty three four fifty four with thirteen homers fifty-six rubies and forty one runs now full season pace of that is twenty nine one twenty three and ninety. That's why I like to do the fall season pace because it helps you understand. Dan Better WanNa guys doing if you know thirteen fifty six in forty one and three hundred three plate appearances doesn't necessarily register what it would be over full season. Although that was kind of easy 'cause usually a full season is about six hundred plate appearances so you could just doubled those numbers but the bottom line is that was fine. If you picked him up there I do wonder how many people like middled it perfectly where they picked him up and held onto d'arno through July and maybe into a little bit of April or excuse me August sixth month reading Paul and then kind of jumped off and parlay that into into maybe like a will smith because he really did flop after after a while so July is when Darnall went absolutely bananas three forty two batting average eight homers twenty five Rameez eighteen runs in eighty seven plate appearances the folsom paces are stupid sixty five to three one forty eighty six like he was out of his mind and that's only in twenty games from that point on from August I on d'arno to forty two three twenty five and sixteen so I mean that's the style foresees pace of twelve ninety nine with the homers rubies with a to forty two hours. That's that's actually not a bad see too but if you're playing it and decided you know you weren't tied to D'arno you took the greatness from him and cut him. You couldn't really played your catcher interposition quite well. if you jumped off at some point in in in mid to late August but anyway he finished tenth Nice little season out of him. I don't know what to think of him. For next year the other breakouts so Vazquez Garber I mean on Vasquez Tepid did on I could still see him as a c two if he goes higher than like the Thirteenth Fourteenth Catcher. I'm not buying James McCann fully out Narvaez is I'm still in d'arno. I'm a little bit torn because I think he's actually going to be a free agent. I think he's finally accumulated enough playing time. Do they bring him back in Tampa Bay okay but keep him tuning he crushes lefties and I think that's where he's best to be managed for the season he had an eight hundred eighty six oh p s against lefties ten of his sixteen homers and six fifty eight Oh ps against right he's so I don't know I'm not I'm not really in on it. I certainly certainly wouldn't hold keep him or or be looking to really buy them. We'll see where he lands and we'll kind of go from there eleven through fifteen or these are all surprises surprises except for Yati Horio Farro Roberto Perez Yati Molino Robinson Trine Kurt Suzuki. That's where gave you some depth and these guys were all available in the waiver wire or at some point during the season without a doubt El Faro somebody that I'm impressed by that he was still able to manage being a top eleven guy why because I actually had some love for when I thought he was going to be on Philly than they got jt Roberto and I really backed off not only because he was going to Miami and they suck doc as a team but because the park and I was like Oh man that's GonNa rob his ability to maybe get some power going I was already a little bit suspect that he was gonNA to maintain as big Bob. If you don't know about how far you're going to be shocked to learn about his plate profile and Bab combination because it's pretty it's pretty surprising so last year the reason I had some I prospect of note throughout his minor league career comes up hits to sixty the two with ten homers thirty seven rabies thirty five runs three steals not bad. We'll something something as a c- to for or how how far I'm like well maybe he can break out. They got Harper. It'll be at the bottom of solid lineup when the new trade for him Moton Nope. I'm out plus. I was already little bit suspect. The batting average could crater cause to sixty two is not even that great and he needed a four zero six Bob to get that for whale Farro because he strikes out thirty seven percent percent of the time and only walks five percent a disastrous played approach but he's actually quite fast for a Catcher as so that saves him and helps him with his with his Bab so again I was out. I moved away. I said you know it's just not going to be something I WANNA get into. I'll I'll look for other C- twos and and kind of go that Route Alfonso's off my board now well it turns out he was actually able to maintain pretty much all of that he struck out a little bit less down to thirty thirty three percent but still only walked five percent hit two sixty two on the button again with a three sixty four Babbitt but the reason he was number eleven is because his home in a fireball jumped up despite the fact that his five all rate went down but as home to five all went from seventeen to twenty five percent fueled fueled in eight homer gained from ten to eighteen fifty seven rabies forty four runs four steals granted it was on eight attempts but mostly it's don't don't care about caught what stealing so give me the four chip in steals bottoming Hor Al Faro's number eleven at age twenty six. I really would love to see him. Cut The strike outrage though because I just I still even with the fact that he's one of the faster catchers and he now has a career three eighty-five Babb in nine nine hundred seventy three point appearances. I'm still suspect on it now. Part of it is any keeps the ball on the ground a lot and the speed that combination has worked very well for four for twenty four zero six and three sixty four babs in his three seasons of one fourteen three seventy seven four sixty five point appearances for Hail Farro. It'll be twenty seven next year. That team can't be any worse can they but they're still not going to be that good so I don't know if he's a cheap see too sure that then that's something I'd be interested in but if its price goes up or people really start to get some buzz on or how Faro that. I don't think it's going that'd be something that I'm interested in fact he's the twelfth catcher off the board in the too early mocks by the way Vasquez was eleventh so I'm not really paying for him either. Some some of the guys going after will invest the. Do Sal Peres coming back from injury. Sean Murphy going at four forty two on average. Tom Murphy fake player at five fourteen. Actually hang on these are invalid. These are one catcher leagues so it's invalid for what I'm talking about as C. Two two so sorry about that I totally forgot that we can't really use the tour early mocks for anything to catcher related we can use it for one catcher but not for two catcher by the way. I'm realizing here that I'm spending twenty five minutes here on catcher meaning. I can't do every position today. I don't don't you love when I do that. I've done that before I have this some very ambitious outline out front and then I'm like this would be a nine hour podcast you more on you're not going to be able to do the whole thing so maybe we'll do. Catch get your first and second today short third outfield and then pitching starting and relief together on another pod Roberto Perez. I'd be remiss if I did not give him his own little section here to discuss because this is a guy who again we'll do the little game of of when when would people realistically have picked him up and what can they have gotten here assuming you know you had to put something on the board to even draw interest was he good after after that so Roberto Perez is even worse than Vasquez from the standpoint of could have never been on your radar at least Vasquez had a good 2017 from C. to standpoint that could've generated some interest Peres really hasn't been good since two thousand fifteen fifteen and even that was a little blip of like a only see two good miss where he put up a one zero seven. WRC Pause and seven homers since then his WRC totals are fifty five seventy three forty ninety eight set hut the ninety eight of courses this year fifty five seventy three and forty coming coming into this year like he is so far off the list of consideration. You can't even fathom it even with a fulltime even with the strong side of a of any sort of catching split in Cleveland. Let me see where he was drafted. If he was drafted so the main event they run four hundred fifty picks deep here. y'All nobody drafted him. One person even drafted Kevin Poole wacky his assumed the backup eight people drafted Nick Hundley one person drafted Max staticy. Hell one even drafted Travis d'arno. I doubt they kept them long enough to get any of that. Goodness let me let we go to draft Champions League's because those are even deeper and see if anybody was drafting Roberto Perez in those probably not many if any so so just to give you some perspective here seventy one draft Champions League's happened from March first on and these are fifty round draft and holds and and okay a lot more did actually draft Roberto Perez Sixty one of them but it was at six forty seven. It was like I need somebody who's is breathing on a major league team here so that tells you where where we're at with him. with Roberto going into age thirty season he had and twenty one homers and ninety nine rabies in nine hundred sixty three point appearances. So of course he hit twenty four homers this year in four hundred forty nine of course why the frequent he absolutely insane by the way if you add up ad which doesn't you know it's not something you would normally do but just to stress the point. If you add his last three seasons of homer to fly ball rate you get thirty one percent if you just smush them all together this year twenty eight percent and it fueled a two thirty nine three twenty one four fifty two slash line with the twenty four homers sixty three revie's forty six runs and thus the twelfth catcher in fantasy leagues crazy crazy crazy stop now. Let's look at some monthly breakdown Roberto Perez now he did not come out of the gate flying at all to homers thirteen average nope. Nobody's paying attention then may five homers but to seventeen average. I doubt people are paying attention then to be honest too. I really think he's still languishing there. Maybe some of you L. L. only folks were like again. I need somebody who's breathing I guess because he's actually shown a little bit of punch. Here's where I'm going to say he. He could realistically realistically been picked up by this point. You'RE GONNA have missed a lot of the homers so from June fourth through June eighth he he hit four homers in a row and just what's what happens then June ninth happens to be a Sunday and I bet he was picked up a lot during that time period going into June tenth and beyond so that's what we're going to. That's what we're GonNa do the arbitrary points for in fact. I can actually get data on this. Let's look at league transactions for main events for my main event. I guess can do all main events. I thought you could hang on player movement right right. Yes yes. Yes okay bear with me here. I'm going to go back to that time period June ninth my mom's birthday happy birthday. Mom and I'll just do all game aim styles right now and I bet actually main event I because that's two catchers how much was vernal Peres picked up sixteen pickups and eyeballing it. That's like the twelfth highest total that was when Travis Dr no actually had seventeen pickups Pedro Severino at eighteen people were looking for catchers that week Nick Chance Cisco had twenty eight Wow let me see the week before that how many people picked up Roberto Perez if any six and these are all in this his main events across the entire main event the week before that nine so he was starting to trickle up people were starting to pick them up but then there was that big force ten the week before that so some people were getting in on it a little bit earlier and actually got the four homer flourish there but I think the majority the biggest blit flip the biggest jump would have been after those four homers in a row that let me see how many that gave him on the season so through June ninth which is the Sunday that you would picked him up. Roberto Perez had eleven homers with two thirty two average eleven so you already know you only got thirteen the rest of the year but let's see what I actually got all told if you picked him up men and wrote it out you got to forty three average thirteen homers thirty eight twenty nine runs full season pace of two thousand nine hundred and sixty five. That's pretty good and to forty three average. Isn't that bad either. That actually isn't so bad even if you missed the first eleven homers including that Nice for homers and four game flourish for Roberto Perez. That's not too shabby that said I don't really buy him going forward. The only thing that changed is that homer to five all right so you is a product of the ball plain and simple he could be again next year by I just don't care this accentuates accentuates. My point here in the too early mocks again only one catcher but he wasn't draft. Nobody nobody wanted him as their own as their loan catcher. Some people even drafted a backup catcher still didn't want Roberto Perez people just aren't seeing it man and I don't really blame them. This is a thirty year old with a twenty four homer blip congrats. It's cool. It's nice this is we see this from from journeyman catchers at times. It's wild but it's not real. It's just not real and the Drina says done some stuff in the past he finished fourteenth and then Suzuki fifties. That's GonNa that's GonNa wrap up catcher and we'll move onto first base here all right. Let's talk awesome first base now and we're going to do a top twenty for first base and I might actually touch on a few others just outside that top twenty as we're going along here here but let's just run it down and then we'll kind of go play by player and talk about a few of the more interesting ones starting at the top cody bellinger number one Freddy Freeman to three Peter Lonzo four jail mayhew yes he qualifies five Trae Mancini six Carlos Santanas seven Jose Abreu eight Josh Bell nine nine Yuli Gurriel Ten Mack Muncie Eleven Anthony Rizzo Twelve Paul Goldschmidt Thirteen Matt Olsen Fourteen Christian Walker fifteen hundred dosier. You're sixteen Edwin Encarnacion Seventeen Jack Petersen Eighteen Eric hosmer nine thousand nine hundred and twenty reese hoskins and then just you know what I think I'm GonNa go to twenty-five him. He just write these down and give them to you because I think there are some interesting was twenty. One is Ryan McMahon. Twenty two is Mark Kenna twenty-three is Howie Kendrick really sharp deeply fill in for sure twenty four Albert Pool halls wow that's a bit of a surprise to twenty five Eric themes yes. That's the group that we're looking at some of the guys who didn't make the top twenty five live of note before we dive in twenty eight Luke voight the it's really just the timing situation volume piece because I mean he was great when he played but only five hundred ten plate appearances left him a little short at a deep position thirty one Daniel Murphy was expected to be awesome in Colorado. He was decidedly early not awesome thirty-three Joey Vodka thirty-six Joey Gallo of course just cut short by injury forty four and forty five Miguel Cabrera Matt at Carpenter respectively Yikes and that's really it that I wanted to at least highlight there so let's let's get into these top. twenty-five here and Eric Claims was somebody who you know he took a job and ran with it in seventeen lost it in eighteen and Kinda took it back in in nineteen took it back from Suzanne killer who you notice. I didn't mention there even even highlighting some of the guys who just missed I think he was even deeper than the the forty five of carpenter. There's far ars scrolling down in trying to find him but themes was perfectly solid and I think became kind of a summer pickup of of import crushed righties couldn't hit left these kind of your standard strong side with tune guy actually started off really strong in April fell way back in May and and then huge June back down in July and then strong August and September for Eric fame so perfectly Crumlin first base outfield fill in there for folks always a fan of his love is moon shots Albert pools being a top twenty five guy means that there was probably some some corner viability and utility viability in deeper leagues. I mean you know twenty four first baseman. Obviously he's not starting anywhere but if you do in a fifteen teamer you need fifteen first baseman. Obviously handful of them are going to be corner. Some of the guys that are here at first base would actually be an outfield so he might have been closer to like a top twenty as far as those used regularly at first base. I'll let you know obviously we do know who cares you not turning this in but I'll I'll give you a brief moment here guests in your head how many homers and rabies pools had this year five hundred and forty five plate appearances on give me that how many home runs and rabies any twenty three and ninety three respectively. That's pretty good to forty four average. You know that's not good three Oh five Oh. Bp Not good but twenty three ninety three on the counting that's not bad man I mentioned Luke voight earlier who only finished twenty eight and did have a good season but but only twenty one in sixty two because you only had five hundred ten point appearances but that's only thirty five few word then pools any out homered easily outrigger Adam not bad not bad for for Prince Albert well done there at age thirty nine continues to grind it out and climb up those leader boards is and and be relatively capable as far as you know. Only I'm sure some of you got some real nice value out of him our pools. Let's talk about how Kendrick I mention in deeply God this year because he comes in with eligibility. Let's see coming into the season he would have had just second base actually but then added it added first base and probably third base in season for a lot of weeks he played fifteen games there so you're talking about triple eligible in a lot of formats for how he can drake and say you're slotting him around the thirty five year old with three forty four three ninety five five seventy two with seventeen homers sixty two thousand sixty two runs in just three hundred seventy plate appearances like I said deeply gold moving around your nl only lineup or your super deep mixers. Some crazies are playing in two thousand eighteen mixers and whatnot not a guy like that like how Kendrick can really do some nice things for you there Mark Kano is one of the bigger breakouts probably not getting talked about enough for what he was able to do this year really interesting season and became somebody that they could rely on as injuries kinda hit the team. You Know Ramon Moriano Oriana with somebody I loved coming into the year. I'm happy with how he performed but he got hurt kind of in the middle of his big hot streak the fact that they were able to stick can out there in center and n not really miss a beat at least production-wise is impressive. I don't think can't house defense. Is that good. let me see here her see if I can find a little something. Do we have anything here. Sorry I'm just looking here. I'm seeing some minuses I. I don't think it's that good. I don't want go to his. Let me go to savant page. Check his outs above average. Take a drink wally. Pull that up. Pardon me on that. I'm going to leave this bottle open so I'm not going in it for the rest of the show here. Let's go stat cast fielding outs above average. Where are Ya he had one so he's about to about average there so not not terrible and the weird thing about Laureano? I don't is amazing. Standout plays but misses a lot of basic stuff yeah kind of a weird season defensively but can't offense was great to seventy three ninety six fix. That's amazing and five seventeen on the batting average job EP slug twenty six homers fifty eight eighty runs fifty eight rubies is kind of surprising there I think part of that is part time playing. Maybe the batting position that he held he did score any runs because he was on base so often on the rigs actually he batted fourth fifth and fourth and fifth predominantly hundred eighty one hundred fifty six plate appearances their respectively Wli and still only came with fifty eight rabies. That's not that's not good. That's Kinda shocking. LISI's scored a bunch eighty rods rods. Let's do full season pace real quick here it would have been seventy five and one zero three respectively for the rabies and runcie like the over one hundred runs but only seventy five rabies. That's weird. I heard where maybe guys clearing the basis ahead of him or does he just not cash in his opportunities for Mark Kano. That's that's kind of it's kind of interesting but on all you have to love what he was Zabell do outfielder first base finished twenty second there and at first base definitely useful in a lot of makes league formats there especially once you really solidified solidified himself into the lineup which sort of came around May and then from May on he was playing all the time in fact June was still a little bit why the playing time but then July on he was locked the last three months of the season he was locked and loaded there as a full timer Ryan McMahon McMahon and Gary Hamson right big talk coming in this season particularly from your boy I was I was loving both house. Love of loving Hamson I will not run away from that I was loving him and it failed miserably and but I did like McMahon to and they were actually battling for second base I just I was hoping they could both get a role. I it was kind of like the Woodruff Burns thing and I loved would drift but if Burns in one the role I would have jumped in on Burns Hamson McMahon. I loved Hamson but if McMahon won the role and he did I jumped in on McMahon. I actually had some. I'm pretty good shares of McMahon this year. He had a rough start and was kind of meandering along and playing time was problematic because Colorado is stupid and if you were really kind of April he was a waiver wire pickup in a lot of leaks McMahon was because 'cause he was getting cut to twenty four three sixteen forty three with two homers he's on waiver wires for sure rebounds and may four homers to seventy seven average but then falls back off again in in June two forty four one homer so I really think the second half probably on a different team than than the one that drafted the name is who really panned out or who really benefited I should say from McMahon but he winds up with two fifty twenty four homers eighty-three rabies seventy runs and five steals in six attempts not bad at all. Let's see when the second half was on so let's put that down into a single line here to fort only two forty four in the second half. That's weird that batting average isn't really there especially when you get the plane in course field but seventeen homers forty seven runs and thirty three rib or excuse forty-seven remedies thirty three runs in the second half there only two seventy at home and then a future to twenty six on the road you know if you're gonna hit that poorly on the road road you gotta hit like two ninety plus at home to kinda sustain it but mcmahon all had good season was first base second base third base eligible in a lot of leagues. Let me see what he's going to go into next year with. Actually he's going to have the second and third next year so that's pretty cool second third rock band. I'm buying back. He's only going to be twenty-five. I've probably GONNA buy back in on Hamson but we'll talk about him at at a different position here Hoskins was twentieth. That was a fail man. That's that's just a bad season and it's one of those things where I think has been hitting on on his pod and articles about too many fly hi balls like it's great to get the ball in the air and try to maximize the power but a fifty percent fireball rate particularly with a lot of infield fly balls. It's it's tough and it was just kind of a pedestrian ho-hum twenty-nine homer eighty-five Rigby eighty-six run season for Hoskins to twenty-six average though it just wasn't that great and I remember writing something about him in late June thinking that he could be some power on the rise is and then he could have one of those big second half hits twenty five homers in the second half and in really helps people win leagues. No it really didn't come there and there. There's some folks who were definitely out in front on this saying I mean it goes the other way. I'm running away from hoskins so when I was running in they were running away and I think that you know they were. They were proven correct. Correct there for sure. I definitely had that one wrong on hoskins. Now I did still rank them in my top thirty first baseman for next year and I don't think that's out of bounds. I mean you've finished up thirty this year why I wouldn't I put fourteenth. I think when I reassess he's going to go down a couple ticks. The common I put his I still think he can hit forty homers but has to to fall below comparables right now and I agree with that still on hoskins and the depth of the position hurts him because he's pedestrian. He's going to lose that outfield eligibility eligibility to next one. Don't you hate when you're in on a guy draft season. You see how the breakout can happen but you jumped ship a little early and then you look at the final line and you're like I had that right. Why didn't I stick with it? It's because they're that late pick and you know if they don't hit the ground running immediately league become one of your first cuts and that's just what happened with me in Rinaldo Nunez in fact I can look up the exact act the exact deal here not that anybody really cares but let's do it just the same I wanna see when I cut him in the main event. 'cause I drafted him and I remember just talking about him and I you know we're both kind of insane. Hey there's there's some stuff to like here about about renowned new use surgery Nado and and hang on when did I cut him all right. Oh I cut for Christian Walker which you know was fine but I caught him on August seventh at that point he was hitting two thirty eight three sixty three eighty one had one homer and I thought Walker was more of a real deal. Now I will do the comparison of the two from that point forward so from August April eighth eighth I say August again on the first time I kind of April seven April April April now. Let's see what he and Walker did from that point on from April eighth on so I got him on the seventh eighth as it would have kicked in that Monday and and let's see Nunez from that point forward it to forty four with thirty homers eighty five rabies and sixty eight runs so yeah he wound up with thirty one ninety eighty for the season Walker for me hit two fifty eight twenty six homers sixty seven rabies eighty runs so they basically flipped the runs and rabies better batting average for Walker and four fewer homers the bottom line is if if given given the opportunity to do it again of course I wouldn't do it because I spent one hundred ninety four bucks on Walker and so I kept that money for basically the same production and so that sucks but right now Nunez man he makes living crushing lefties that's where he really butter his bread to seventy three twenty six five ten with thirteen of his homers against lefties so it's eight thirty six P. S. eighteen homers against righties though and and let me see something here real quick. If you pace his home run rate against lefties for the appearances that he had against righties it'd be twenty two do so only about four more home so he was really kind of keeping a similar pace now. The batting average against righties really struggled just to twenty nine but I take two forty four thirty anyone ninety with seventy two total runs from pick. That was crazy late for me. let me see when ended I take me. I don't need to look that up. It was one of the last three or four rounds play plain and simple. I do know that for a fact so I wish I just stuck with a man a lot. A Lot went wrong in my it was literally the last round wow thirtieth round a lot went wrong in my main event vent. This was not the you know if I just held onto him. Things would have been much different. It's a nice little microcosm of of how things went sideways though of how I regularly seem to be making just just the wrong move who've by a little bit because again walker wasn't bad but you don't WanNa spend two hundred bucks a Fab to basically break. Even which is what I did. Eric Hosmer by the way was eighteenth at first base that shocked me. I do not like Eric. Hosmer is a fantasy player. I never really draft him. I find him to be remarkably bland and yet he went twenty two ninety nine with a two sixty five average this year and that's pretty good and I mean it's good enough to finish eighteenth. It's a pretty capable middle middle. It's pretty capable corner. I should say you know. I wonder how many of you how many of you tweet me please if you can remember at Spore S. P. RJR tweet me. If you WANNA league with Hosmer on it and give me some idea of what you know what else you had around there but one of the things that he does delivers a set it in forget forget it capability you put them in a corner and it's just they're all year now. Corner was pretty deep because their base was remarkably marco deep and first base added depth in season so you might have missed out on some good stuff but I don't think we're really hurt by this to sixty five twenty two ninety nine only seventy two runs that's part of San Diego but just locking that in it corner and never have to mess with it or even utility. That's not bad hats often hosmer there. That's a that's a pretty solid fantasy season there even though he was still pretty freaking bland as far as his overall production goes he is ninety one on the WRC plus after a ninety five last year is just one of those things and we have it with different guys a lot of times. It's speedsters where their fantasy value does not match their real I value but this is another one like real life. That's pretty black or San Diego specially for what they're paying him but there is some value to really being being able to set it in forget it and the dudes played a buck fifty seven or more in each of the last five seasons and he had one thirty one and fourteen but then one fifty nine one fifty fifty two the two years before that so that dude is a war course Eric Hosmer is and there is definitely value to that even if the production isn't necessarily it's a -sarily there but twenty two ninety nine in rbi shorter Bondo that is surprising to me. Let's move up this board. What a little bit? not eric just talked about him. Jock Peterson got first base eligibility and was able to finish seventeenth at the a position I think at at a certain point he was more valuable as a corner then as an outfielder now he had bouts where he was looking like one of the best hitters go in as he seemingly does every year but it always comes back any any winds up kind of being who he is which is a is a really strong power guy who beasts on righties and I could strike out if I threw left handed and I'm a right hander like I could throw with my offhand in and probably get them out that's how bad he is against lefties and he doesn't even play to that to that point like the dodgers don't even mess with it veiling gave him fifty plate appearances but he's able to put up thirty six homers seventy three rabies and seventy seven runs in just his verse righty played plate appearances four hundred sixty four for John Peterson. That's pretty damn good and you know if you plan a daily league or even something like the NFC where you can kind of maneuver it. You can extract those extra plate appearances when you know there's multiple lefties coming up and you didn't lose anything fifty point appearances now now one of the things that I'd have to check. I didn't lose anything 'cause you lose evening against lefties but there are times when he would come in and probably we do something actually hang on. I'M GONNA backtrack on that. No no not really fifty the eight plate appearances as a sub only two homers in two sixteen average however however I don't have any games he started against what about the Games where he started against a lefty and got to face a righty reliever and put them in for that but you probably lost a little bit bottom. The wind is it didn't really undercut what you got from Jock Petersen you got a nice season here you're able to manufacture some extra point appearances there by putting in sub for those times where he had to lefties coming in a row and all in all pretty good pretty pretty pretty good and when thinking rcn just keeps chugging along not gonNA deal dive too much onto what he did. I will tell you that it was hang on I only have as New York numbers here does full season thirty four thirty four and eighty six it did snap streak of four straight one hundred. Rbi Seasons that's all about volume though he would have gotten there again if he I played more than one hundred and nine games the next couple are breakouts including one irony mentioned a hundred and Christian Walker at fifteen and fourteen respectively dosier was somebody I did really like this is what I felt good about if you got some playing time. I didn't know he was going to do this much right. I'm always open saying listen. I liked somebody but I like them for this particular format and I'm not GonNa say that I called called it to to this degree or anything like that twenty six homers eighty four rabies seventy five runs to seventy nine average in one of the things I thought he could made me do is chip in some some sneaky speed feed. Give you like that seven to ten because he does have some speed for first base perverse third hit ten triples but only two steals for hunter dosier but on all it was an excellent season he is just twenty seven years old too so I think there is some some staying power here I think he can really club it and and I'm going to be in next year for one hundred dollars. Well and then Walker I mentioned Kinda gave you his numbers from the from April eighth on one tack on everything else that he didn't it was twenty nine homers seventy three rubies eighty six runs to fifty nine average. He was another guy who was known to beat up lefties these but if you could do anything against righties he could have a breakout well. He actually flipped it. He was better against right. Is this your eight thirty eight. PS seventy nine against lefties maintained maintained fulltime playing time really made it so that they didn't Miss Paul Goldschmidt that much right. Let's let's side by side the pair here get Goldschmidt numbers so again Walker to fifty nine three forty eight four seventy six with twenty nine seventy three eight eight chip in steals by the way Goldie to sixty three forty six four seventy six so in eight twenty one opium he was actually four points lower than Walker thirty four homers ninety seven ninety seven runs better fantasy asset but he finished eleventh. Excuse me twelve to walkers fourteenth and much much much much much much much cheaper and frankly frankly I would trade the five homers and even the runs and rabies for those extra steels. Maybe not maybe not the running Arabia's. Maybe not ninety seven on both is pretty nice compared to eighty six seventy three so I backtrack backtrack on that but eight steals for Walker three for Goldie not a bad season for Goldie number thirteen my boy Matt Olsen what an awesome year from him especially considering when he had the hameed surgery terror struck the fantasy community in his price tumbled in fact. Let's quantify it all right. Let's do average DRA- position from the thirtieth or excuse excuse me March first through the twenty first and that's it through the Japanese series his own the thirteenth teeth first baseman off the board at pick one twenty nine Mandelson was let's do from the twenty second on and that's through the rest of the month so what from one twenty-nine down to where are you maddie radio down to three thirty four holy crap people were terrified refined and this is the main event fifteen seven bench spots and I understand why I get it. I'm not even trying to chastise and say you should have known. He was fine Hameed Eight. We always worry about I think I think we're starting to get more evidence though that it's not an automatic power killer. I think we're really this is just another notch. This isn't the only guy who's bounced back power wise and they'd have to deep dive. Maybe something Jeff Zimmerman could do with his injury database and we're seeing more and more it can affect guys but it's one of those things almost like the home homerun Derby. There's no conclusive evidence that it does or doesn't it's a case by case basis meaning. You shouldn't immediately run away from a guy who's is going to have the Hameed surgery particularly when they're gonNA have at this early in the year and really only miss a month Olson was back on May seventh but everyone not only that you're gonNA miss a month but I thought the power was GONNA be sapped. It decidedly was not for May seven John to sixty eight hundred fifty one five forty eight thirty six homers ninety. One ribs CBS seventy two runs. That's a forty seven homer pace. If he played all year Mattie oh baby awesome awesome awesome awesome awesome I had all my shares before then thankfully I wish I wish I would have stuck doc with him and maybe even added more but I had plenty of shares to the point where I was like not worried wait did he not are you freaking kidding me but to tell you something that is going to be really gross or maybe not. Maybe I'm overrating it. Maybe I'm overrating it but but he was not drafted in my main event. How's that possible hang on? There's something wrong with my search. That's not real come on no because he wasn't picked up either he had been drafted. Come on GIMME draft results. What's pardon me while I figure this out? I'm going to build this out. He had been drafted. GimMe a frigging break but when I did control F Olson didn't work there is three sixty one though I must have been selected on different position three six. I know it was never mind. I know what it was but three sixty one from attleson twenty fifth round pick how did the team that had him they do and they finished third sure. Mattia was a big part of that. I mentioned Paul Goldschmidt was twelfth. I'M NOT GONNA go oh too crazy on a lot of the top eleven here because it's the name expect Anthony Rizzo at eleven Max Muncie at ten Muncie. I'M GONNA put a big check mark for me. As far as I'm really happy with what he did. I thought he was really. I thought it was legit. I was buying back in couldn't wait to stock up shares of him. He hit thirty five homers seventy seventy nine rabies in eighteen thirty five and ninety eight this year so basically you add playing time and you got you got added runs and rabies you gave away twelve points a batting average from two sixty three to fifty one. We'll take it for the added volume of runs and rabies will take it so he finished tenth he had first second and third eligibility excellent excellent excellent season. The only downside was really that you lost him late so head to head folks really felt the pinch and you know even the second half Ferodo second half of September second of the season's second half of September was tough but love when he did Yuli Really Gory Al.. I don't know what I could have done to try to convince somebody if I'd somehow had the the results in my hand before the season. I don't know what I would have had to do to tell somebody to convince them. Hey Dude I got I got the results for the season. Yuli Gurriel ninth at first base coming for at the end of the year now is not Paul. You're an idiot no dude. I swear it he's ninth. It's it's GonNa be awesome drafted. NOPE NOT GONNA draft him. You're a moron okay. I am a moron but be that as it may. I have these okay. I'll stop that bit. Here's the thing he was very reasonable to draft for one particular reason that I love to talk about late batting average it's hard defined and you felt like that was at least a lock so far with Houston coming into two thousand nineteen at twelve seventy four plate appearances of two ninety you want average. That's locked and loaded in that same twelve hundred seventy four point appearances thirty four homers this year thirty one in less than half the plate appearances he nearly doubled his career home run total. That's nuts and didn't hurt the batting average a lick it to ninety ninety eight. What a find grill has to be on so many winning teams right you would I think maybe I don't know you know you you speculation out you do the data and then it's like no? It's not it's not that it's not like that for baseball especially like where that one guy that happens more in basketball and football with the particular running back receiver maybe not so much in baseball just because of the we put our puzzle pieces together but I certainly wouldn't be surprised to hear some of Y'all stories about how your draft him. I liked him for batting average and instead. I got thirty one yaks excited him with the batting average. Hundred four rabies eighty five runs five chip in steals by the way same as he did last year you like that hey back. That's not a whole lot but when you get the chip INS at at Catcher and I in in from like you're you're big rock power guy third or the outfield. That's great you love it. Excellent season we thirty six next year and this is our actual. I check really been checking anybody eighty where they're going for next year one forty seven in the too early mocks. I think that's a perfectly fair price ice now. The rain is pretty wide from one eleven to one eighty three so I think he'll creep closer and closer to that high end. We'll see though thirty six fantasy baseball is ageism knows no bounds even with a breakout like this. I think it'll be I think it'll be easy to get get what you believe is a fair price and because the batting should still be there even if let's say the ball changes and and the power goes away are still gonna get the batting average so I'm still gonNA take him. I'm still really interested in Yuli Gurriel. Even at thirty six I'm intrigued very intrigued. Number eight was Josh Bell. We know the breakout that he had he was the talk of the League for the first half fell on some hard times and then rebound and let me see how he actually closed so just the trajectory come out like a house on fire in April nine fifty five amps it up the next month twelve thirty eight in in May tempers tempers and out a little bit in July seven sixty four seven in sixty nine but still had nine homers and thirty six rabies combined in those two months. I'd still plays for sure AMPs backup in August with eight homers the nine twenty seven P s and then meanders to the finish line because the only played eleven games so two homers in the eight zero three so weird up and down season you head to head folks probably were pulling your hair out with him but he won you some games in April and May without a doubt and August. Maybe get you in the playoffs but then when you needed him in the playoffs he wasn't really there for you. which is tough? His draft stock has really skyrocketed. He's sixty fifth. Pick overall. I get it I think I mentioned in a recent pod though that I'm. I don't know if I'm going to be paying it though not because he's not worth it but because of other other players I like the aforementioned Matteo's thirty five picks lead. I'm definitely taken him my boy Max Muncie. I'm sticking with him. He's picked seventy benign under dosier one twenty nine among others so yeah. I'm just it's it's. It's not anti bell. It's pro other guys right now so yeah. Let's get into the top seven here. This is another little bit of a surprise just because he quietly did it Jose Abreu you at seven wait. I read you some of these numbers again if you didn't have him and you're not familiar doolittle doolittle guests in your head of what he did this year I'll tell you that he had six six hundred ninety three point appearances and I'll tell you that he went twenty two and seventy eight last year. Got Your numbers numbers how about thirty three one twenty three he led the AL and rabies. It's an easily set a career high now. You're thinking how on a on a dog Shit White Sox team well. The thing of it is some of the folks in front of him. Were decidedly not poor. They were quite good and so you know you have Tim Anderson Getting on base at a fantastic thirty six percent clip let me see so we have a break you batting third and who was batting was Moncada batting two so was it. Was it Anderson Moncada. Oh wait Larry. Garcia was more are less than leadoff guy in the Anderson to there's a lot of Moncada to when Anderson was hurt. I believe yeah sorry I'm just looking over their there. Okay so what Garcia do obt wise thirty three seventy eight so he's getting on base of thirty eight eight percent clue. That's why as ninety three runs so there you go you got learning Garcia Tim Anderson and then even Moncada sliding in there at times one of the top two spots and he had a three sixty seven. Oh be the three really strong will be P guys regularly fitting in those one two spots giving abry ample opportunity to cash in and he did not blow his chances fantastic year brilliant down the stretch eleven eleven Arabia's and I almost said runs eleven homers forty nine runs batted in thirty seven runs from August I on excellent excellent stuff from Jose umbrella you now. He's a free agent. I don't know if it's a bad idea for them to bring him back. Let me keep him as that that called House staple. He's going to be thirty three. It'll be h thirty three season is already thirty three. I think no at ten thirty three January okay so it'll be as age thirty three season and you know I think they're close enough enough to where you resign him and let him continue to lead lead the charge there in the middle with Anderson Moncada Menez. Hello Larry Garcia can do that again. He's perfectly capable even if you don't lead them off if you go Anderson Moncada Jimenez and then you've got Garcia down in the like lower level wait a minute wait a minute. I messed up. I messed up uh it doesn't invalidate everything but I am an idiot. I am a co Wassell idiot. I gotTa Give Learn Garcia mad credit. He scored ninety three runs with three ten. Vp I was looking at a slug. I used his slugging as an EP because it's three seventy eight of course you would think that that's more of an. OB P A slug but yeah so that actually makes a brave more impressive because that's like a dead spot hot leading off but then Tim Anderson definitely parked on bass regularly in front of Bray abry you only bad at third so it was just one of those two all all the time great year from him though we'll see what he wants as far as free agency. I'm going to be intrigued wherever he signs the the market has been on EMI's at one oh six. I mean not really cool. I think it's just the depth I think just the depth of the position but he had this big season. He went down from eighty nine eighty P last year for Jose Abreu to the one oh six so far this year so again. I don't think it's a cooling factor. Though oh I think it's other guys have emerged and he just kind of gets placed down there like well mayhew coming in to the first base ranks muncie solidifying himself as a legit Olsen going off like those three guys I think are are wire braced. You fought but that makes them a great by that makes them a great by in my opinion. I'm I mean on a bray you Carlos Santana was six. He was fantastic this year. What one amazing mazing season at age thirty three to kind of have a career year not Kinda I mean it was it was awesome because one of the things is is I've been a Carlos Santana guy for for average love love switch hitter big time? We'll be whenever I started playing obt leagues you home. Rostering Ham was was a godsend. He's one of those guys that gets the biggest jump from average to obt leagues and just kept thinking dude what if he ever hit for average but at thirty the three like that ships probably sailed he did have a one thirty two. WR C. Plus in two thousand thirteen that was standing as his career year drops a one thirty five live this year going to eighty one three ninety seven five five fifteen with a career high thirty four homers a career high ninety three rabies in a career high one one hundred and ten runs. I could've just said all three numbers and then set those are all career highs. I chose the more difficult route dead equal strikeout-to-walk ratio at sixteen percent apiece appeased with a one zero eight of each. That's amazing. The Bab jumped up to ninety three is a career to sixty eight feeling that to eighty one average. He's never really struck out. He walks like crazy. You've always kind of wondered why doesn't have a good batting average ever and he finally spiked a big one at age thirty three and had a brilliant season also through in four steals again those chip-ins you love 'em awesome year basically thirty four next year so the markets let me get him. Pick one nineteen on average and that's actually usually heavily influenced by pick forty nine in one of the two early mocks other the NAT zero eight one twenty nine one thirty to one thirty eight one fifty fifty five. I think age thirty four Santana the market is gonNa let you have a bit but even if he goes back down to who his three year average coming into this season so from sixteen to eighteen he had to forty nine with an average of twenty seven eighty four and eighty seven. I would take that. I don't think that that's killing me. If if that's quote unquote all I get now. This is a jump. He was picked one ninety ninety four on average in the main event coming into this year so you just jumping up but if I can get 'em around that one thirty I'll take it because I don't know that the average is necessarily a stone cold fluke for Carlos Santana. I I think he could be more of of a 275 so it's still be dropped from this year's to eighty one but it'd be better than the career to fifty bottom line. I like Santana. I'm open to taking them at its current price and we'll see where he lands as as drafts go deeper or as we get deeper into draft season I should say trae Mancini speaking of Bab he he is at the mercy of his. I mean you can literally just clock his seasons to his Babbitt twenty seventeen three fifty two bab- great season two three average twenty four seventy eight last year to eighty five Bob to forty two average twenty four fifty eight homer. Stay the same or go down average tanks this year three twenty six Babbitt to ninety-one average thirty five homers ninety seven ribs excellent year for Manzini. I do wonder what causes such a fluctuation in his bab babbit though because he's he's a ground ball guy grumble guys generally hold hire Babbitt sometimes things just don't break your way though to eighty five isn't isn't even like a bad but it is a far cry from the three fifty two that he had the year before for trae think he's going to maintain first base race outfield but let me check that yes he will maintain first base outfield eligibility so that's nice this he'll be twenty eight still be on a terrible team. Pick one thirty six on average perfectly fair price. I think you can you can eat you know if he drops back down in average till like two fifty but you're getting a major jour- discount if he if he can hit two ninety again so I like I like Nancy. Dj Lemay. I'm actually going to save him for second base. I'll dive more into to him there plus. We've talked a lot about him this year. He had an excellent year but I'll dive more. He was the fourth best first baseman. I still think folks even even if they believe in him. They're going to want to draft more as a second third baseman type and he does have eligibility at all three next year which is awesome but I think people want that rock rock power guy at first so I don't. I just don't think we'll mayhew even with the Nice Spike to twenty six homers. We'll talk more about him. At Second Base Pita Lonzo you absolute monster assaulted Lonzo Ball League. I saw turn one. Oh three around from Nate Pearson person with ease flicked it out to right center field absolutely smoked. We're we're making jokes about forearm porn with him. I saw it it was there right in front of my fucking face and yet I still treated him as more of more of a basic power guy and what I mean by that is like kind kind of like a Chris Davis to be honest Kris with a K. Even though Chris Davis himself has been excellent. I was thinking more of like early career. Chris Davis Now Davis jumped from twenty seven to forty two homers but I was thinking kind of split the difference there because that year that he hit twenty seven it was only one hundred twenty one game so it'd been thirty seven. I was thinking that he could that could hit thirty something homers even without knowing that the ball was was used up up but I thought I was going to be like thirty something with a two thirty. Five to forty five average thought he was basic. You know whose basic me. I'm basic. I gotta fog. I see these guys and I still don't. I still don't hit on them. I get the advantage and I might use my assessment and say that he's just by a thick now in fairness. It's not like the market was crazy on him in in overdraft him you went to five on average. If anything that makes me look worse because he wasn't even overpriced. You couldn't snag a sheriff somewhere you saw it live live and in person it's one. It's a one at bat sample but it's pretty impressive right signature significance. I believe that something that's bill. James's coin where a a small sample if great enough can can be worth as much or even more than than a lengthy sample I think I I think that's been used more in in the vein of like a fifteen strikeout game. You can't really fake a fifteen strikeout game but yeah I missed him did fifty three homers one hundred and twenty rabies hundred three runs for Peter Lonzo with two sixty average the markets in forty four pick on average ranging as high as thirty four P. The polar bear love him dude. I'll mean fun to root for always got. A smile on his face seems like a great dude. Lead baseball and homers sets a new Rookie Record Hal season man and we twenty five next year her like a fully formed guy too right. There's the the judge comps are there for a reason and I don't think that they're like dead equals but like like you can see why those comps are there so I don't know man great job by Pete Alonzo sorry I literally zone out staring at his numbers. That's how nice they were all right and then the last two guys here. We don't need to go to detail because we know we know they are they are we. I thought they were Freddy. Freeman at to cody bellinger at one excellent seasons by both Freddy Freeman is still chronically underrated a-rated just just in terms of his excellence not even in the fans communities eleven pick off the board like that's fine. There's nothing wrong with any of that. I'm just saying in terms of like it's like we passively acknowledge. Grady is maybe underrated isn't the right term but he doesn't get hyped enough. He's so good he's so freaking good in so freaking steady and again the market doesn't give you any major discount on him but it's it's just like why don't people do more backflips about him and again talking about the chip in speed six eight ten and six the last four years I that's not a make again. I don't want to overstate. I don't want you guys to think I'm overstating this. I'm just it's a little tack on. It's a fun little tack on eight by the way came in one hundred seventeen games. He might have gotten twelve thirteen year career high thirty eight homers one hundred twenty anyone rubies and a one hundred thirteen runs average dipped broke a streak of three straight years over three hundred but to ninety five no-one's crying about that from free free gods adds a beast man absolute beast now ballenger. I'm looking at this now and I'm wondering the hell everyone's talking about. I'm hearing a trajectory of season and the late late late fall off and all that the hell y'all talk about okay yeah as as opiates went down every month but when you start at thirteen ninety seven nowhere to go but down but then when you go to nine ninety eight you still don't have many places to go but down nine sixty seven nine fifty two nine eighteen eight ninety one none of those are bad just because it makes a neat little pattern where it goes down every month so four thirty one in April no shit. He was gonNA come down from that and that fuel they three sixty three thirty. He's six for the first half like dumb man. Did you really believe that that was his true talent. Now come on some of this is is like well you you had a misguided expectation at a certain point you know once he fell below four hundred which actually happened on May eighth so from May eighth through July seventh those those last into going into the break yet to ninety one perfectly capable. You know nothing wrong with that. I think that's like the kind of sample that you that you judge now granted his second half was still to sixty three are still almost thirty points lower than that but I feel little I feel a little unfair judging his three thirty six average holding that up is like well. We'll get the fall off from there. Okay Dude or do that. Whichever one of you is saying this silly shit? It doesn't really make sense to hold them to that standard on any level whatsoever so yeah you came down in the second half. He also had a two who sixty seven Bob but in the second half seventeen homers forty Fr forty four rabies fifty one runs full season pays for that forty one one oh five one twenty two brilliant despite hitting to sixty three he also stole seven bases in seven tries at seventeen four four season pace so add it all up. Here's what we got three zero five four six twenty nine forty seven homers one hundred fifteen ribs hundred twenty one one runs fifteen stolen bases from cody bellinger absolutely brilliant guess what he'll be twenty four next year dudes insane nine okay Paul. You're talking on this big game. Why did you rank him second and free I mainly because of the batting average the comment I think makes that clear? This was his first season over two seventy. He was electric drik playing has literally the best player in baseball for a month and a half literally even better than trout trout was playing brilliantly but when you add it all up every facet of the game bellinger Joe was doing perfectly was the best player in baseball and then he came back to being an elite player but I don't think that this is a new batting average level the three zero five maybe hits more of a two eighty but it's careers to seventy eight now some bringing that back to the pack a little bit whereas Freeman one of the most consistent superstars in the game so I did go freeman over bellinger drafts are going only bellinger over Freeman. I did just get done to hyping ballenger and and loving on him but also not taking him fourth because I think you're paying for this year and there's GonNa that'd be some pullback. I would pay for Freeman at four before I would bellinger I don't have to I'm just saying I would I would prefer bellinger closer to ten which means I'm never going to get them and I know between four and ten. What's the difference again? It's like the the NFL draft pick chart where those early picks each pick has a big difference in between it and then it starts to congealed a bit as we get deeper and arounds I four and ten is a pretty big deal of course with your with your draft slotting. You might not get ten and so if you have four and you want balladry and you take them there. I don't think that's agreed Gis. I'm just saying I wouldn't do it. I think right now at four I'm taking bets and who else my taken over badgerland underling door and then maybe some pictures and and maybe even story to get to get bellinger to ten but I don't make it sound like I'm denigrating bellinger at all. He's amazing and if you're taking him that high because you believe in him and you think that this can be a new batting average level because again he is going to be twenty four next year so if you believe that there were some changes here that he made that really solidify him as a better batting average guy okay. I don't quite agree read. They're not because he fell off from the four hundred clip that he was on but if you just look into the last four months to sixty two but if you just take those last one hundred games when he hit twenty seven homers sixty three rabies seventy one runs eight steals Dell's paces to forty four one zero three one sixteen thirteen even with the two sixty two so again. I'm not hating it all just Gimme the batting average love of a Freeman in exchange for those few extra stolen bases. That's basically the calculus I'm doing here. Meanwhile bets I think his batting average we'll be fine. He went from three forty six to ninety five but still ninety five yeah excellent year from bellinger really interesting your first baseman and just to give you a top twenty of how they're going in these two early mocks just the top twenty first base qualified folks now hang on. I will say this we we use fan tracks and these were technically twenty nineteen drafts so there may be some first base eligible people who are not be first base eligible going forward and so correct me if they if that is the case but I'm just GonNa read these one to twenty Bellenger one to Freeman Three Alonzo four Rizzo five bell all six Goldschmidt Seven hoskins too high eight months eighty nine Lemay Hugh ten Olsen Lovett eleven bray you twelve Santana thirteen fourteen Mancini fifteen and can are see on sixteen Gorell seventeen void eighteen Peterson nineteen is actually she Brennan McKay because he's listed as a first baseman but no so nineteen I'm going to say is McMahon and then twenty is Daniel Murphy and then actually I'll do twenty five twenty two or twenty one carpenter twenty. Sorry because I'm off kilter because I'm taking care. I'm messed up so twenty one carpenter twenty two low NATO twenty-three Hosmer twenty-four Dany Santana and twenty-five Christian Walker so that's what I base as looks like next year so far and we're GONNA get some more data here in two weeks when I go out to Arizona and I'm really eager to see how that how that breaks down but yeah that's I that's catcher and first base. I'M GONNA do a few more of these. Hopefully enjoyed this just kind of a postmortem on each position. Let me know what you think. If there's something you want me to add let me know too. I think I'm going to try to do yeah. We'll go second short then third outfield than starting pitcher relief pitcher supposed to be my next three Solos as well but I appreciate you all listening obviously the schedule lighten up belittle bit as far as both the pod and my writing for October really but then amp right back up in November so don't don't don't leave the site.

Hour 3: Old Man!

"Donlevatar if you see a photo of fries you reach for not unlike a pigeon flying into a sliding glass. I i'm not kidding you. I have been tempted in restaurants. Just won't pass tables to grab somebody's fries. That hasn't happened to you guys. I've done it. You've done to me done that being on like actual photographs retry to zoom zuma night with your fingers and you just make a big streak cross it a bigger fry. Lick my computer screen when it's on there. I love french fries. Stugatz doesn't love french fries. I thought it i always someone out there. That was the one thing america could agree on. I thought that that was the one place where every citizen in our country would indeed be united across the fifty states these labor tar show with stu gods ads on e._s._p._n. Radio e._s._p._n. Radio is presented by progressive insurance guests on the dan lebatardshow appear via the shell pennzoil performance line. Here's your sportscenter update. The mets scored five times in the top of the ninth to take a ten to four lead only to watch the nationals erupt for seven runs and kurt suzuki hit a walk off three run homer to win eleven to ten might give me the short stat of the day start of the day startled in this stat of the day start of the the day's startled the easiest out of the day start of the day start of the day this stat of the day start up the day a start up the day of the <hes> <hes> hey dan the mets entered the night eight hundred six and oh with a six or more run lead in the ninth inning or later. The nationals had eight eight. Oh seven hundred and seventy five record in a knife with a six or more run deficit love to bet that in game ninth-inning among those stats i went to sleep digging the mets at one it was not until my drive in this morning where jason fitz delivered and update and he alerted me the mets loss will someone please put some decoration in that room jason fitz in to do golic and wingo. It's sad and looks a bit like a prison like solitary confinement. Somebody put something in there so that jason fitz doesn't have to be alone with sadness. Jason tatum will miss at least the next two world cup games for team u._s._a. With a sprained left ankle all lockheed l look bad man and finally al pacino turned down the role of han solo in star wars at drew louis whatever movie i would've been put on the poll. Would you have liked to have seen al pacino. Ah on solo are worth for all the latest headlines and information tune into sports at already e._s._p._n. Radio all throughout the day. I'm i'm also a shame ashamed to admit stu gods that i got it wrong on your mets. I did a deeper dive on the numbers. I'd set a couple of weeks ago that they were <hes> better than some of the teams they were competing against for the wild card and they are not better than the nationals like there. No there are no numbers that would support that they are actually better than the nash you down a little further. <hes> i actually look at some numbers. I got fooled by their hot streak and i was like oh wait. No the nationals knows they're really good in the mets are just okay the national since i think may mid-may you can make a case. They've been the best even baseball. That's how good that pitching staff has been. It's incredible edible harbor. The best of the best of baseball is a good deal better than everyone else. When you look at <hes> you know the top four teams including loading the braves and then the i don't know how an american how the hell is an american league team gonna make their way through both the yankees and the astros like it because it's is baseball but both of them through both of them. I guess i mean baseball gives you a better shot at the randomness but <hes> those those two teams are a pretty overwhelming <hes>. They are the raise a really good though and smart. I mean just the way they go about it. They don't have to worry about starting pitching. They have like five pitchers a game. I mean and there are smart team and they've been very good to get the yankees this year. Record was i just i i'd be really surprised if anyone other than the yankees or astros ends up coming out of the american league <hes> but if you're just joining us stu gods had what we believed to be a record setting our of mistakes and <hes> billy earlier earlier in the show was arguing. I don't understand the argument but because i gave the stat to <hes> credit to berry jackson of the miami herald that the dolphins are going into the season with a defensive offensive line that has a total of five and a half n._f._l. Sacks billy doesn't understand widened to steal that why it is that i gave the credit when the stat is just a fact <hes> but it was not my stat and god's heavily endorses this stu gods heavily endorses this he believes he believes that he can steal lending without giving credit however he wants credit for breaking the zeke elliott story yesterday. He told you yesterday on the show. He basically basically laid it out for you before. All of these reporters got in the fray. Edwards and todd archer stugatz broke doc this story during our show yesterday. He absolutely broke this news now. Did he see other. People may be speculating about it on twitter. Possibly who's to say who knows goes now. Could those people be stu got his sources the same way those journalists have sources absolutely they could anyone yesterday say definitively zeke elliott deal done ninety million dollars. No no one said it until stu got so in the world's view stu gods should get credit for reporting the news that that deal is done for that amount of money his sources may have been other reporters speculating and they may actually have sources but that's outsources work work to god's sources have just known by everybody but nobody wanted to put their name on it accepts stugatz therefore he should get credit for breaking that news that is not how sources work irk. You don't seem to know much of anything about how source sources where people give you information now. Most people keep their source of secrets because they're cowards got out there and he's like you know what this is my source. That's my source. It doesn't matter if it's water it doesn't matter schefter those are his sources and he put two and two together and he got to four yep zeke deal done ninety million dollars. They have have their sources dated. I have mine and they are mind okay. I'm an aggregate site. Okay so what i do is collect. All this information and i have the grapefruits to get out there early. You just say it's it's time to report this and that's what i did while let's listen to that sound. This is from yesterday about twenty four hours ago. Put it on the poll. Guillermo should stu gods. Get credit for for the news break. <hes> that zeke elliott was signing. Can i report it. I mean you can report. A chore is being run with the story. Just let me know the details to like one of the details. I am reporting that zeke. Elliott is going to side with the cowboys. They rip up the old one. They give him a new contract and it's going to be a ninety a million dollar contract about that. Wow what are the years. Maybe six seven years something like that team. Option de details the com- still working it out nailed it yeah yep next off season. Dak prescott get an extension of that. How about that. We learned earlier in the show is also so stolen by stugatz all stealing from christopher mad dog russo dano but next off season and he's a source too by the way next off season dak prescott amari kuper extensions with the cowboys working out the details walk that back a little bit and just say before next season starts because if it happens during the season then you'd be wrong. You want to back it up a little bit. Give yourself some leeway. If four next season starts extension or before next season starts dak prescott amari cooper we'll both sign extensions with the cowboys have of that working out the details somewhere in the neighborhood of five to six years. I just got one hundred ten. I think right jaw aw vague here because you can't give stu gods confidence because you see what happens like every time this is what happened giving <hes> zeke elliott eight years which is basically what they've done but they've put in provisions. Who's reporting that the provision for off-field con no-one no-one no-one yet. I had reported it yet what we do know. Is that the cowboys. What we do know is that the cowboys who have been very transparent with all the details in all of their other extensions shinzo deals. This offseason haven't been so transparent yet when it comes to this ezekiel elliott deal. We were talking about the nationals earlier. Did this do. Why have this right that this actually happened a couple of weeks ago. Did jack white go to nationals game in the first couple of innings and then go do his show with the rock on tours and then come back in extra innings to watch more nationals game he did that seems impossible. I know how that went down to. He was he was looking at his laptop after the show and he was like holy cow game still going on. Well know that you were watching him weren't you were just basing eh backstage for that one security risk by the way <hes> you know one of the league games come back as jack white what to do it. Yeah that's true. He's the only one that's allowed to guess what he said like. If they get another out we're going back to this game and he got out and he's like everybody on the bus and they went there and he got out there and i think the thirteenth inning and he saw them rally tiet and extend the game so your winnings. We'll put it on the poll. Please is a baseball game too long. If jack white white is in attendance in the early inning leaves and does his show and then comes back for the end of the game so god's here at anytime what in four car batteries is about to fail so think ahead and get yours tested for free at advance auto parts.

They'll do one of these things that you didn't watch the game and gonna make me feel stupid about what i just said. I watched the game. I saw it with my own two eyes stugatz. I saw the game too damn. This is our show with his two guys on e._s._p._n. Radio geir mo can you put it on the poll please. At lebatardshow we have lost mike like ryan for the next couple of minutes as he sees the new bad boys trailer with martin lawrence and will smith <hes>. Put it on the poll. Please at lebatardshow. Oh are you bothered by how much of the advertising budget pnn l. uses every time <hes> one of these storms blows through here and then all the sudden. They're on every damn channel telling you how much they care about your power like. Does that bother anybody else because i can't believe the overflow of money that f. pnn l. has has anytime. There's a storm around here all of a sudden. I'm meeting every guy who's ever fixed. The lightbulb in this city is on my television telling me how much he cares about on may strike while the iron hot feels like these earth or a bit of a marketing ploy for f- p._n._l. Who's happier. Put this on on the poll as well. Who's happier when this stuff happens the electric companies or <hes> the weather the weather people terrorist and and by the way i'm telling you that what happened in the bahamas right now and it's awful as you're watching all of this video that is catastrophic <hes> that that could have been awesome man like it simply. It's simply a direction of change in wind that makes the water from this ocean not be up to the second second floor of these studios because and it's beautiful outside it is after after everyone's scared the holy hell out of us telling us the this storm was nearby headed our way if that had hit here i know you might think of the bahamas as not having the infrastructure and it doesn't have the infrastructure structure to withstand this. I'm telling you miami doesn't either this area would all be under water. If that thing had just come here last night was gorgeous but to your point there have been articles written written about that that the ocean and the and it's the beach and then it's the street and its buildings and if the wrong storm hit south beach miami miami that is the wrong. Storm orange is what i'm saying and we've had. I don't know how many category five has been. The wrong source been happening a lot lately yeah like that part yet. The storms keep getting stronger and stronger and there is nothing to protect us from that it. It is just <hes>. Do you have the good fortune the thing about this particular area area where we live the reason when you watch scarface this area is not it doesn't have real estate. It's just old people on the street in government housing is because those people knew you do not build anything expensive this close to an ocean where there is no protection for the storms arms that come here. It's different. If you're in malibu where you your home your valuable things although they have a different set of issues in malibu either deal with earthquakes and dan fires well yeah that we were just very fortunate here like the rolling stones. I went to that rolling stones concert on <hes> on friday got they had to they had to move it up right and there was just general fear because of all the rain that was happening and by the way the rolling stones you would not think so they still bring it what they still care and i the first two songs i was a little worried to god's because they put their faces up on all the big screens and i was like these guys are a little bit mummified. We've got a fossil situation here and they came out slow but they were just is pacing themselves because they're old people who still bring it. Mick jagger crushes it that drummers funny to look at this point. I'm sorry i don't want to be mean. What's his name. Charles waters every time they showed him and they were like an hour late. My dad was making joe. Someone wake up charlie charlie get out of your home but go ahead and look at look at the payment black video that he's in and he looks exactly the same. Was there like a gas when they showed keith richards like everyone collectively right think he looked better. Don't get out and you would think got's what's given an avalanche of drug use over the years <hes> but <hes> i love to figure out a way and i don't know how i don't know how well we can help because we are affiliated with red cross here at disney but i would love to figure out a way for our show to do something <hes> for the people of the bahamas because that if if this place were under water for a week where storm is just sitting there. It's not just that it hits you. It hits you and then it just stays there for twenty four hours. That's rare that that was something. I don't thirty six hours rare anymore anymore. We're talking about unprecedented kinds of catastrophes anyway. What about that bad boys trailer. How does it look dog like martin lawrence face yeah. He had how many years to get in shape for this movie like it. He not know when they were filming. This show man man but they're leaning into it at least which makes a trailer kind of funny. It's red ban by the way so don't watch it at work like i did almost joey pants gets in there and he says honestly mislead thirty f- word back to back just to show you that it's are rated. I guess and his hairpieces back don't you fret but <hes> yeah. Martin lawrence looks ridiculous and <hes> there. There's like a very expensive car. That's driving through brick. <hes> brickell city centre. I didn't see the clevelander studios and yeah but <hes> you know lots of car. Chases lots of bad boys bad boy singing lots of like. I'm too old for this and screaming while you're like ridiculously on a motorcycle so it's gonna be awesome. They were filming for people that don't know in that are listening. They filmed right outside on the beach. Here and billy went out there and was our correspondent respondent. How great would it be if billy allison appeared in the background of this movie so what numbers this for bad boys now. This bad boy's three but the title is bad boys for life which leads me to believe. They're not planning on a fourth bad boys because this is the title that you sit on for the fourth so he had sixteen years to get ready for this or bad bad boys prequel roy. How did you feel watching it. I feel bad for morton his head. It's it just grew. It looks like he kept like the prospects from big momma's house yeah the might forget the tone take it off. Donlevatar people have told me before when i was younger that i looked like george clooney of syria when i was younger stugatz you have a bigger and you're right nostril sodas cloning liveth our show with his two guys on e._s._p._n. Radio here's your sportscenter update. The mets scored five times in the top of the take a ten to four lead only to watch the nationals erupt for seven runs and kurt suzuki. They walk off three run homer to win. Eleven get out kurt suzuki zouqi exactly what i was like twelve when that guy broke in with the mariners right yeah jason tatum will miss at least the next two world cup games for team u._s._a. With a sprained left ankle i remember him as an a you were laughing at bill simmons during the break because of jason tatum. Why were you laughing at bill simmons during the break because simmons tweeted out. I hope devon booker's watching this o._t. Not game before is intense workout with some five nine trainer who just keeps feeding him uncontested threes because that's a better way to prepare for the season. It was blasting devon booker looking for not playing a team u._s._a. Moments later jason tatum got hurt and he got mad at jason tatum playing it team u._s._a. Broken with oakland never played for seattle yeah. It's in keeping with god's his expertise. Today you confuse them with the other famous suzuki that blade seattle or cavs sake. I chris you wanna back me up here the baseball guy stop with a back like stop that move okay. He's not back us up the move of getting a fact wrong and then telling us to look at opera asking for backup. Just accept the you've got another fact wrong and i historic day for getting facts wrong okay chris. You want to back them up. I thought he was very when he said you're on. Who are we thinking of. I don't know who you're thinking of. Maybe i don't in order to know where mike just said that it out. I mean i'm not certain lakes right and finally played a vegan woman has filed a suit against their neighbors in the australian surpreme court after complaining about the smell of meat and fish emanating from their barbecues and i told you maybe you're thinking of kozaki sure <hes> for all the latest headlines and information in the sports center on e._s._p._n. Radio all throughout the day. I i have paid the fine here for calling the drummer of the rolling stones charlie waters instead of charlie watt stu gods pointed out to me during the break that charlie charlie waters was a safety. I believe for the cowboys. I don't believe anything he saying today so i i don't. I don't know look it up. I i have no desire to look whether charlie waters was a safety for the cowboys are not is born in miami <hes> happy thirty eighth birthday they to beyond saying happy birthday to her. I don't care good luck. Charlie waters cowboys. I'm back yeah the single bar face mask through playing safety crazy charlie waters and you had a respectable effective career played at clemson miami guys leaving for clemson and ain't that the truth the whole thing that's happening with clemson is strange you realize for how long team has been a laughing stock doc like you could not count on clemson to win a big game across several decades at clemson this this was a thing is the thing during twitter and they fixed it with dabo swinney. Dabo swinney is sounding older than ever these days. <hes> look at billy smiling back there because he was delighting. What is the worst part of this sound down that we're about to play involving dabo swinney ability data's talking kind of about how often says change over you know. I don't even wanna ruin it for you. Just listen okay so offense offense changes but it doesn't matter because he's got the best quarterback in the sport and he's also got four number one picks receiver and he's also got the running back. Who's faster than anyone else but here's the genius who's running in clemson. Just throw the ball a lot in those days but that there wasn't you didn't have for night.

What was that sound at the beginning of the interview. Was someone coughing sneezing. You just didn't throw that is a bit breathtaking in terms of trying to connect today's athlete. How much does new fangled kids with your mayo l. chat rooms. I don't even know what what does that have to do with boys for davo. What does that have to do with the evolution of offense. What am i missing. Lemon hear the sound here so that i can understand the champion genius a little better every it just just didn't throw the ball a lot in those days but that there wasn't you didn't have fortnight you.

Welcome if you'd like to be part of the program the phone number eight seven seven nine seven Eric. Eight seven seven nine seven three seven four to five this. This hour of the show is brought to you by first liberty of Georgia I Liberty G. dot com is their website. If you're a small medium sized business you want to be a big business you need access sister capital. But you don't want to deal with the bank go to first liberty. GPA Dot Com verse Liberty of Georgia Tell The frost family ice. You can be anywhere in the nation hearing me right now. Does not not have to be in Georgia. They just happen to be a first liberty G. A. DOT COM. I is there so much on impeachment and everything else you know so I was gone this weekend and My Buddy Chris Burns Who has filled in for me before sponsors the show through his company dining money we took a trip together? We we kind of both needed the break and he took my computer from me. I carried it with us on the trip. And he's like dude you're not working And my all of my electric devices were confiscated needed and I couldn't watch the news. I tried I couldn't if they caught me looking at my phone. I got in trouble. I mean it was great. I got to employ which I never do But it was forcibly done to me so I come back this morning and I I gotTa tell you. There's been impeachment developments This Elizabeth Warren stuff crazy. The battleground poll. Have you seen the battleground polling. We we'll get to that but there are two stories blowing up right now. And I haven't even gotten to the Paris accord. Kurtz Zouqi Kirk Suzuki the baseball SPA player. Not only him but Ryan Zimmerman. They go to the White House and Suzuki puts on a Red Maga- hat and they are ready to burn him at the stake. This shows you everything you need to know about the country right now. Particularly among the elite norm Ornstein he's the the inhouse leftist fisted. The American Enterprise Institute The guy just I mean he is a worry wart and nonstop worries complained about the president honored on. He's the guy who's like. Oh partisan listen. Gerrymandering is terrible now that the Republicans are doing. It never really said much when the Democrats were doing I don't think but he he just put up this tweet here. Very sad I love Kurt Suzuki as a player but he wore a Maga- hat to the White House so I will not cheer him not quite as bad for Ryan Zimmerman but his praise as for trump is hard to take. So this is the president had the Washington nationals over to the White House yesterday for a big event had a lot of friends who are going I was flying back yesterday. Finally had my electrons back to me and could search instagram in here. All these friends of mine at the White House yesterday for the nationals event in all my goodness Kirk Suzuki from the Washington nationals dare I to put on a magazine gap the red mega cap symbol of racism everywhere. It's racist someone actually actually put online that it was eight speech to wear. The magic cap is a symbol that you are uttering the others that you believe in white supremacy in nationalism that you support the bigoted legacy of Donald Trump that you. Oh you wish to other others you wish to make them be something other than Patriotic Americans. Because they're not white blue collar trump's of orders. I mean I mean this is this is actually how they look at this. You put on a Red Maggie cap and go into certain sections of New York City in Los Angeles San Francisco. You might get beat up. But it's the person wearing the cap whose intolerant and you see the practitioners of tolerance. Why they're intolerant of intolerance they taller everything accept intolerance and just conveniently intolerance is defined as everything they don't like and they are? I mean these people are seriously upset seriously upset with Washington national. Where's because you know the basketball players? They didn't go to the White House they stood in solidarity with the American skin. People tired of the you sir. Donald Trump but the baseball people get her seriously all the other story that we needed dwell on for a moment is that Sean on Spicer continues to stay in dancing with the stars. The president has broken call in TV. Shows you know I I shouldn't call it. TV shows the the the the ones where the audience get to pick the winner. Instead of the the left wing judges. The audience gets to pick the winter and Brian. Stetler from seeded has actually. He's upset about this. Lots and lots of people are upset about the New York Times actually has eight. Let let me let me read you. Where where's the clip? I just had it and then yes here we go. This is from the New York Times. I I am not kidding you I promise yes. This is pounding the desk ice ice promise. I'm not going to wear but I promise this is an actual quote actual quote from the New York Times this morning the New York Times. Now I caution you if your hands are not on a steering wheel if you're just listening to me in general you probably WanNa put your left hand palm up against your left table and your right hand palm against you right table and push in gently to avoid your head exploding when I read you. This passage from the New York Times. Bad Dancing by non-professional can be disarming it allows you to see the truth within the body that reveals character but Mr Spicer the former White House press secretary and communications director for president. Trump is something worse worse and untruthful dancer addressable food. Oh my gosh. It looks like he really enjoyed himself is I'm tripled answer his hips. It's it is yes. We gives the in his hips. He's as an entrepreneur. No I'm not making this. No this is real. This is real that is hip sly. This is insane. This is insane. His Sean Spicer's hips move like he's a good time we know he's lying there so upset. The president has broken so many people he is broken. Oh can the elite who liked to watch these shows and you know the the crazy thing is the people who watch these shows eight the shows the reviewers from the New York Times. Thanks Paul the HOI could get on television and actually dance with professionals. How dare they do the waltz? Don't they know the waltz is reserved for people in the nineteenth century and earlier. We can't do the waltz now. They're doing the waltz. That's racist Sean. Spicer is doing a Mexicans that is clearly ridiculed the people of Mexico build a wall around. Sean Spicer's hips. They're really actually upset about this You know I wish that there are days I come in here and I see these stories. This is one of them where I think men seriously euler upset about Sean. Spicer dancing on dancing with the stars that this is this is how how you're appalled and enrich you know. I really do think what are the things that is driving. This sort of stuff is is the click bait nonsense out there That here I am. I'm going to be talking about this and People are all opposed to Sean Spicer. And we've got to drive up the ratings of we've got to drive up the viewership uh of our pieces so we need to come up with some sort of hot take that encourages us to whip everybody into a frenzy. Here's is this. Is the critics notebook of the New York Times. The headline no Sean. Spicer really can't dance. He has consistently been the worst performer on dancing with the stars. So why is he still on on Monday. Night Sean. Spicer yet again collected enough audience votes to deemed safe on. ABC's dancing with the stars. Kate Kate flannery was voted off. What's terrible about this week's result? Is that the competition included dance off. Mr Spicer went up against Miss Flannery. She won according to the the judges. But Mr Spicer remains in. It's outrageous. He has a different partner this week because his regular one Lindsay Arnold had a death in her family. It didn't make his dancing better or worse. It remained consistent awfulness Mr Spicer stain power has little to do with his performances over the past eight weeks. He's been the weakest dancer from the show is low. Scores from the judges at borne that out bad dancing by non-professional can be disarming but Mr Spicer sure he's an untruthful dancer. The creation of a dancer takes years around ten and the great modern choreographer Martha the Gramm explained in her autobiography blood. Memory the movement of a trained dancer she wrote becomes clean. Precise elegant truthful movement never lies is it as a barometer telling the state of the souls weather to all who could read it. Mr Spicer hasn't trained of course but he has revealed much about his soles weather through his dancing he hides behind agree GIS smile partying his teeth to make it look as though he's been caught mid laugh. The smile seems meant to distract from his plan of attack. Never actually performing a dance but conquering it. And so he set out aalto campaign. Creating the website Spicer Arnold Dot com where you can purchase mugs and hats or a set of yard signs and The people are stupid. Apparently apparently well listen. I I generally people are stupid but these people are stupid. They're a- this is. This is a reality TV show where the audience gets to judge and now they're upset now. I promise you if you actually saw my shell and I I sit down every morning in outline. What are the big stories? What are we talking about the number one story Before I even got into the Bauer point was going to be the Paris accord the Harrison. We're the president is formerly. pull it out of the Paris accord the left is in meltdown. We will get there in moment. But why did I go to Kurt. Suzuki in Sean Spicer I instead because I got on social media I made the mistake mistake. I got my computer back. Finally WE I. It was given back to me so I could come home. I turn on twitter and the intellectual elite elite of America are in meltdown. This morning. They I mean generally meltdown. Reporters pundits think tankers. They're horrified that someone who would play for Washington. DC's team might put on a Red Maga- cap. They're horrified by. That idea horrified that he would do that does he. Not Know Washington hates Donald Trump. And here how are we ever going to cheer for this team team again. What does it say about someone that because of a player on a team putting on a cap for a politician? They'd like that could affect whether or not they want to support the team. Not just the player but the team and then you've got a stupid reality show full disclosure. I do not watch dancing with the stars. I find it to be one of the most insufferable shows on television. I do not watch it. I realized there are people listening to me right now. Who Do Watch it? God bless you for watching it AIDS as a waste east of my time but people watch it in the audience votes. Those are the rules winded. The left stop liking the popular vote. They've been dealt with. Donald Trump didn't win the popular. He's not a legitimate president. Sean Spicer is winning the popular vote and now they're upset with the popular vote because it's not about the popular voted never was and it's not about Donald Trump at never wasn't it's not about Sean. Spicer never was it is all about them wanting to charge and they occasionally run into these crude in rude reminders. That they're not in charge anymore. And it upsets them. They believe the left fully has invested in the idea that everyone who is righteous agrees with them and their beloved Kurt Suzuki it turns out he likes. Donald Trump Ryan Zimmerman praised the president and there can be no forgiveness. WHOA kness forgiveness only existed Christianity? Chieh there is no forgiveness in whatness so these people must pay and you idiots who were supporting Sean Spicer. You must pay. Hey too. Because his hips lie. He's an untruthful dancer. And if you weren't bigoted rube supporting the president. You would know it This is the these people are genuinely ridiculous. I'm not sure why we should take them seriously. The only reason we have to take them seriously is because they are convinced that they should be ruling ruling force in this country and they hate you because they're not they blame you for their lack of power. It is Eric Erickson here. Twenty four after the hour in in his election day election day around the state of Georgia and Nationally Louisiana Virginia Kentucky They've got races there. the Virginia races are highly watched by Washington because Washington presses Giddy at the thought of the democratic takeover in the In the House of delegates in Virginia which is is probably going to happen. The Republicans hang on by a thread there The Republican Party in Virginia is not super organized. It hasn't been in the last couple of years. But you've got governor's Governor's race in Mississippi Louisiana one in Kentucky and you've got a lot of races here in Georgia including The the BRENCH legislation the MIMOSA. A bill some people are calling it I I'll I'll review this again later but just thirty cities or counties in Georgia That are going to decide today today whether or not alcohol sales can begin in restaurants as early as eleven. AM currently alcohol. Sales can't begin until twelve thirty. PM and there are other restrictions in some parts of the State on alcohol and and so the the votes will be in Albany. Berkeley late Cairo. Carterville Carter's Ville Centerville. CLARKSVILLE Cleveland Cornelia. COVINGTON COMING ULA Delana Lumpkin County Darty County. Amerson can you hardly Hampton Henry County High Rem Lee County Lilburn Locust Grove mcdonagh Matt. Monro Moro noon in norcross Rome stockbridge Valdosta oeste Watkins Villain White And there are a bunch of places that have already voted on this. But those are the ones here notable for Russell Right now in the listening area. This hour Kiro CLARKSVILLE CLEVELAND Cornelia Delana. We got let's see Lee County in their little burn in there Rolm Valdosta Watkins Ville White A few more in their coming up So just remember you've got an election today In those areas in particular you've got more than one issue. A lot of people have lost on the ballot. And I'll get more into this more detail on this later. Did you hear about Greta. Thunberg remember her. She's apparently was headed to Chile. Now this is something that isn't getting a lot of notice around the world right now win. The Arab spring broke out. The Western media was very much Focused on the riots in in the Middle East from Libya to Egypt to Jordan to Syria to Iraq Iran. And now there are lots of riots breaking out in Western civilization their rights and chilly their rights and limit on their riots. I I think I saw in Hungary. There were some rights their rights in Spain and Portugal. Right now People protesting protesting against governments among other things. They were going to have the UN Climate Change Summit in Chile and the government. There has had to cancel everything because of civic unrest so they've moved it to Madrid. Well a bunch of people got the Greta Thunberg idea of of saline to Chile to go to the conference Thunberg herself decided to sail and now she's on the wrong aside the planet to try to get to Madrid and she doesn't WanNa fly and she's upset. How dare they change the summit? is she going join to fly to get to Madrid. Time will tell but they're having to change course all these people on boats or having to change course to to get to the climate change. Some I mean we the people listen. I appreciate that people really care about this issue to such an extent that they are willing to up in their entire life order and go backwards to survive. I mean the last time we relied on wind and solar power was called the Dark Ages. And that's what these people want. You gotTa have windmills and solar panels. You can't have power when the sun goes down or this or does or the wind doesn't blow and then you can't be on airplanes anymore. They want us to go back to sailing in boats to get around the world slow travel you know there have been all of these. These stories worries out on things. Like slow eating. Have you heard about slow eating. I kid you not. This is one of the health trends. Eat Solo actually do chew sixty times per byte and then your body will be filled quicker because you know as you're scarfing down your food food your food gets in your stomach before your stomach can signal that you're no longer hungry so if you eat slow your stomach can signal when you've gotten and when you're full and you could stop eating and now we're into slow travel. We should go back on boats to go around the world we should sale as opposed to get in there quickly and flying and by the way you know even Elizabeth Warren Has Come Elizabeth Warren of all peoples come out and said no I fly commercial carbon emissions but Greta. Greta Thunberg wants to actually be on her prince's yacht to sail around the world. The this whole thing is just the environmentals movement is getting insufferable. Trouble on some of this stuff is genuinely crazy. the extent to which they're going to go and now they're all crying because they've had to move the summit from Chile the Madrid and they've all sailed to the Western Hemisphere and then they'd get a sale back to the eastern hemisphere horrible. Imagine the people who are able to get on a plane. It's unfair for those people should be taxed for having the advantage of flight. But it's a conscious choice is not when we come back the Paris accord. Yes you can call in. We do take calls calls eight seven seven nine seven Eric. That's eight seven seven nine seven three seven four to five. The president is formally withdrawing growing from the Paris accord. I I'm not sure why it took them so long to do. He's been hinting about this for a while. this is making international headlines. Today today You should know there is a lot of outrage over the president doing this They're actually I. I'm I'm surprised that there. There is as much as there is given How the president has been very open? He planned on doing this. I mean this is actually the the top story at the BBC right now the BBC news site The the top story the headline regret as US begins exit from climate change agreement Paris climate accord. US notifies you into withdrawal. Here's this is the BBC again The BBC a British British the British Broadcasting Corporation. It's their top story on their website. International side right now the. US has begun. The process of withdrawing from the Paris Agreement Green notifying the United Nations of its intention to leave as other countries expressed regret and disappointment at the move. The notification begins a one year process of exiting the global global climate change record culminating the day after the twenty twenty. US election the US government said the deal puts an unfair economic burden on Americans. The agreement brought together one hundred hundred eighty eight nations to combat climate change. There's been widespread international condemnations of the. US move the Paris accord agreed in two thousand fifteen commits the US and one hundred eighty seven other countries to keeping rising global temperatures below two degrees Celsius above preindustrial levels and attempting to limit them even more to a one point eight five centigrade Celsius now rise the decision to withdraw made the US the world sold non-signatory in prompted high level efforts. It's by the European Union to keep the agreement on track however hundreds of local governments businesses and organizations in the US joined the we are still in movement pledging to cut emissions and moved renewable energy. Isn't that antastic. American businesses and individuals are pledging that they will take up the effort that Donald Trump is walking out of. Isn't that a good thing. I mean all of us should applaud that if your company wants to cut emissions standards for your company. God God bless you if you an individual want to burn cow poop or have a windmill in your backyard and kill all the birds or put up solar panels. God bless you sir for doing so step up and take the initiative yourself without uncle. Sam forcing us all to do it. Put yourself in that position without requiring the government to make it happen. I think that's the perfect solution here. The fact that the left after having a full meltdown over this tells you everything you need to know about it They want the government to force this. This seems to be this really is the big divide if we're honest about it. This is really the big divide between the left and the right these days. The right really does believe that you as an individual can take responsibility yourself for these things and in so doing you could be responsible for your destiny and if each of us do a small bit to help will then each of us do in a small bit amplifies out into a larger bit for the whole country. There was an article actually. Oh where was it I was at a New Yorker somewhere somewhere in the last couple of months. I read it about a guy in Sanford. I said no no no. He's not in San Francisco. He's in San Bernardino which is in southern California And he does backyard gardening any helps others get their backyard gardens growing and his his whole rationale is that that the world is basically going to die and he's going to make life better as best he can and if everybody steps up and does the same thing then maybe we can prevent the world from the death that he thinks the world is going half half and so his whole thing is he started back your garden and then he helped his neighbor star Backyard Gardens and they learn about rain water collection and water runoff in Grey Water Etcetera Cetera and and he tends to community gardens in his thinking. Is that if more people did this. They would be learning to operate seasonally with their vegetables which doubles that they eat. It would be helping our bodies. We will become more nutritious but we would also be putting it in and massive commercial farming that uses pesticides and hurt the Environment Blah Blah Bob Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah and. You whether you agree with it or not whether you think it's crazy. You can kind of see his logic here if I do this and then I helped my five neighbors do this. And the nature of those five neighbors helped five neighbors we have this exponential rate of improvement where none of us now are buying vegetables at the grocery store. So we're not driving for you are vegetables. we're cutting down the need for farmers to take over land that had trees on it. We're cutting out the need for farmers to drive their their carbon. Fueled old tractors as much and in a small way in his small plot of land. He can improve his life. He can prove his nutrition. He can save himself money and he can fight back and I think it's genius. I really do. I think is a bit of mind you. He really does seem despondent that the world is going to do it in he fundamentally we believe the world is coming to an end in the next ten years. Maybe maybe maybe this is a subconscious thing where all the Pagans now realize Jesus released coming back. You know what I mean if God makes us he's kind of woven into us and even those of us who don't believe in that we know in the back reminders that little bitty voice that says there's more than this and that little voice is now screaming. Hey you got ten years you got ten years. Except he's processing is as not. I got ten years to rip it. I got ten years to actually grow. Grow my garden. I'm just throwing it out there but I mean this is this is where we are and I think it's a good thing I think. It is a good thing for individuals and businesses to step up on their own because one it shows the government's really not needed the so much of the environmental movement in the United States is wrapped around the idea that we need to be just like Europe. We need command in control. We need higher regulation. We need the government imposing on people imposed on people that desire to eat better and live well in a way the government demands said they keep changing all the nutrition regulation so that we keep changing all the time. But that's what the left wants. They want the government demanded this stuff they want the government to mandate healthy living. You know it was actually Hitler who And I I don't mean this pejoratively but seriously if you read the Nazi party platform they went to great lengths to encourage Through the Houston. Power of government vegetarianism among Germans. They thought it would would. What do them better? Hitler was a vegetarian he. He encouraged people to become vegetarians. And he used the state to do it. but take apple. Just just take apple for a minute. I gotta lot of issues with Apple. These days Their their software men talk about Buggy but apple has decided sited that it wants to be one hundred percent carbon neutral so at apple's new headquarters the the the the big circle. UFO spaceship style campus. It's it's covered in solar panels. They all of their power from renewable sources apple has major server farms in North Carolina and elsewhere and and they get all their power from solar and wind around the world. Apple is insisting that its factories be either carbon neutral troll carbon negative meaning that they're they're improving the world around us and I think it's great. We'll that caused hawes apple to char- they're already paying are higher prices but you can buy an apple product. If you're a lefty who cares about this issue you you can buy an apple product knowing that you are not damaging the environment you can feel good about yourself. It's like buying a left wing rosary. You put that Apple Watch on your hand and it taps you once a day and remind you to breathe lefty prayers. Thank you difficult for saving the environment Thank you for being carbon neutral offsetting everything donald. The trump administration is twinned to destroy the world. I mean it's it's a religious experience. It's like a rosary. Put on the Apple. Watch and breathe and think Tim Cook. And Steve Jobs are having the foresight to save the planet from the Evil Awful Donald Trump by doing carbon. Offsets it's a good thing and we didn't need the Paris accord for. Where did we do? You know where the Paris accord is the the Paris accord is a voluntary program. You see they're they're actually fleet. What what the way? The parents record worked is that each government would come forward with a plan for that government on how to become carbon neutral on how to stop the world's world's temperature from rising and the rest of the world it's it's unenforceable in many of the countries. When the Paris accord came out including in many European countries what their goals were were the things that they were already doing so it really wasn't a sacrifice it they were already doing these things they just is? Put it into the Paris accord to make themselves feel good about CECE. We're now really doing the really committed to these things. But there's no enforcement. Provisions in the Paris accord they which is somewhat funny That the one of the arguments for saying that the bears record is that while there's no binding enforcement so why not stay with. There's no binding enforcement. Why not leave because what the rest of the world doesn't seem to understand this argument? Is that the Paris accord would give the president because he signed it as an executive agreement the president would be able to get some executive power. Our based on that to enact executive orders to ensure that the American government comply with Paris accord the Congress did not ratify and that's why Donald Trump to get rid of it the hilarious irony. Here is that in so doing the president. The end of the period record will come the day after the election next year. We are now a year actually year minus a day from the election yesterday with three hundred sixty five days today. Three hundred sixty four days until the election. The Paris accord based on. Today's notice would expire on Wednesday the day after the election in two thousand twenty. Now why would the president do that because this is going to be a huge campaign issue for the Democrats will of course it's going to be a huge campaign issue for the Democrats. That's exactly what the president wants. I want to play for you. This audio this this is Ilhan Omar at a Bernie Sanders rally. And I want you to listen to what she has to say about about Bernie Sanders of pain and suffering is personal for both of us. The fight for human rights is undeniable deniable and when we recognize injustices of the past and present whether it is genocide against Jewish people are Manian ends on one Benz or Bosnians are native Americans or more we realize that that recognition is about panel sharing our political vos but leading within in how moral obligation I beyond honored excited it against Western imperialism and Western imperialism realism Western imperialism and adjust world. That's what Bernie Sanders is fighting against. y'All Western imperialism and agenda and and fighting waiting for for just causes around the world against the United States like the Paris accord when the Democrats like Johann Omar go out onto the campaign trail in start talking about Western imperialism in genocide in how the United States is to blame mm-hmm so all the United States is there will be a segment of of America's left leaning population. That is so so focused now on white guilt. Not that they'll buy it. They'll go for it. They'll agree but most walt don't most people are actually going to go out there and say hey we should wreck our economy and the growth in our economy to make Europeans feel good about themselves or make the left feel good about themselves. We're dealing with people who looked at Kurt Suzuki putting on a red baseball cap in decided he though they've cheered for him in the past is now bad God. We're talking about a group of people who are upset that the audience of dancing with the Stars Support Sean. Spicer these are the people who are GONNA be upset with anything. Donald trump does but more more than that they also th there is a fundamental idea. Yeah I think that has creeped into progressivism that the United States is bad and I don't think that translates well to to most people and if anything I think the President President waiting for today to cancel when he could he could have done it for four years the president could have done it the entire time and he waited until now and he made it the big issue for the day after the election and then the day after the election the Paris accord expires. This now becomes a campaign issue and the Democrats can't help themselves in the way they talk about it. The Democrats cannot help themselves in how they approached the issue of climate change. They do not seem to understand fundamentally that the American people are not with them him on this issue they do not seem to understand fundamentally than Americans are not willing to wreck their economy to make themselves fuel good about the planet cooling or warming it or anything else. They don't want to give up their fossil fuel based cars for an electric car that by the way the harvesting of the lithium wrecks the the world they do not want to give up their hamburgers in favor of lab created synthetic meet they do not want a pay more for their power bills they do not want to live in the dark liking California. Yet that's what the left offers in if they're gonNa make twenty twenty about that sort of stuff. This is going to be an issue that hurts them. The president he was a genius political. Move for the president to wait until now a year before the election action to make this issue because it will drive the Democrats to hysterics the seems to be a signal in my mind. The seems to be a signal from the president and his campaign team team that they understand. The Democrats cannot help but overplay their hand on this issue with their rhetoric. And they're hoping that they do. I got to tell you. I feel a little vindicated I've said this on the program a couple of times. Now I don't know WHO LATINA CTS IS I. I don't know what a Lateen IX is. And you hear Elizabeth Warren say this it's always Really Rich White Progressives who say Latina CTS Latina six. It is a gender neutral Latino Latina Latino Latina if it's a woman and someone came up with a brilliant idea of going with lateen ix for men and women because they didn't want to just say Latinos most most of my friends who are Hispanic go by Hispanic and in fact someone finally decided to pull the Hispanic community and it turns out A plurality support Hispanic and then right after Hispanic Latino only two percent Well within the margin of error It could be actually zero people. Two percent say Latina CTS is acceptable. I guarantee you that the people in that poll who said Latinos X.'s. Acceptable are progressive academics. They're members of the Spanish community who are progressive academics or activists. Because because those are the people who use the term no one in the Latino Hispanic community uses the term and yet Elizabeth Warren and Kamla Harrison. The like or Al Out there talking about the Latino community entity Alexandra Kazu Cortez Talks about the Latino community. She of course Hyper progressive activists a member of Congress. She is in the Latino community. She I think he's the only person of prominence who actually uses it who actually is Hispanic in the Democrats so this all cook from Democratic pollster who essentially is going out warning Democrats stop using this word Latinos. Nobody uses the word. It sounds condescending to the Latino community stop stop using it and Elizabeth. Warren can't help herself hip as an Richard would say hip per self can't do it and people are trying to it. It's a silly silly thing. By the way I want to spend time when we come back in the next hour I wanNA spend some time on this But the Elizabeth is Warren Versus Donald. Trump story is heating up. And it's worrying people because Nate Cohen again at the New York Times. Who is now respectable in a way that What's his name Nate Silver Nate silver of at five thirty eight. He's no longer acceptable. And he's no longer acceptable to the left because he dared to suggest that president trump has a shot in twenty twenty and the Democrats are being unreasonable in some of their characterizations of the president. And so he's he's anathema now and so they've Gotten Cohen who who is at the New York Times in his essentially. Now doing what You need silver used to do is at the New York Times Pauline in vetting polls and looking at stats well on Monday the New York Times and CNN released poll of how Donald Trump is ferrying against three leading Democratic presidential candidates Joe Biden Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren in six critical suing states. All of which trump won in twenty sixteen. The result contains bad news for a Warren. Despite how her despite her strong showing with Democratic primary voters than Iowa against President trump she performed worse than Biden or sanders with trump leading or tied in five of six Wings Dates Biden leads or Chris tight with trump and five of the six dates while the Times poll shows trump and sanders running essentially even the Times. Nate Cohn who oversaw. I saw the poll road of Warren quote. Not only does she underperform her rivals but the poll also suggests the race could be close enough for the difference to be decisive. What are the key takeaways here? Is that the president is way better positioned initiative in the battleground states that he is nationally. The polling that the national polling is skewing our sense of the race you should start looking at the the battleground polls the I mean I sound like a broken record and say this. I've been saying this for for the whole time. I've been on the show since August. We launched the battleground polls are meaningful. The national polls are not. The national polling is meaningful to the extent that you've got a double digit gap between people like the President and Joe Biden that reflects down into the swing states. And that is exactly what we're seeing. When the president has a double digit gap in the polling? Data affects the swing states. The margin is so big that it affects the polling in swings dates. But when you look at people like Elizabeth Warren Against Donald Trump notice how the national margin is closer to warn born and trump and that reflects the battleground states as well. We're in the battleground states. The president's margin is so strong he could potentially dominate Emanate Elizabeth Warren. And guess what. The President has more money than Warren he can go on and start defining going away. She can't define him over the next couple of months. That's not going to help Elizabeth with Warren if she's the nominee and it's looking like she could be. The president will win reelection and the Democrats are starting to realize that you'll I would like to think quip for sponsoring serene this week show. y'All I love my quip toothbrush.

Congratulations to the University of Georgia in its fight against The Florida gators the governors of Georgia in Florida made a bet on the game If the gators won governor Governor Kemp I started to say President Governor KIPP would head to the Florida everglades Hunt Pythons and if Georgia one Rhonda Santa's the Governor of Florida would head up appear to hunt hogs with governor so Rhonda Santa's is going to go hog hunting now. I want to begin this hour with this story. That is still making all sorts. It's of waves from yesterday. When I was gone I was flying back from a guy? Straw was we'll we'll we'll discuss it later and Mike Hi. My computer was confiscated from. You're not allowed to work Seriously the the buddy I was going with was very insisted that he would smash it. If I tried to work They took look all of my electronic devices from me so I could not work and keep up with the news. I am workaholic. They know it it was basically a detox weekend for me Rehab weekend by not working. It was the least stressed I've ever been. I didn't have my computer to steer social media or anything but but there was a big story The New York Times upshot a which is run overseen by Nate Cohen. Their in house pollster. They decided to forget the national bully. Only the national polling skews to the Democrats because it's very hard to weed out the Chicago's and L.. As in New York's and Miami's the world where The president in his behind these major urban corridors they decided instead to conduct polls of battleground states And they did a poll. Lean one of several thousand people in battleground states. I WANNA say it was three thousand some odd people people. They wanted to get. Marcia there's yes. Three thousand seven hundred sixty six registered voters not likely voters but registered voters. And here's the thing this is what's what's so so significant here. One of the things that the the battleground polling for the New York Times did is they did not talk to people who said they would register. Or whose registration had lapsed. They talked to people who were actually registered. You know in a lot of times people will count register voters of people who we're not registered but intend to register a lot of those people. Don't actually register so this is a pure voter registration pool of three thousand seven hundred sixty six registered voters right. Now keep in mind as well. Here's the thing. A registered voter pool leans to the Democrats. All voters tend to lean to the the Democrats by about four to six points. A registered voter poll leaves to the Democrats Press. Two to four points and a likely voter poll can lean to the Democrats up to two points but tend to be more precise record. The the narrower the pool of voters the better it is for the Republicans and the reason is because Republicans do tend to vote in larger numbers than Democrats but there tend to be more Democrats so in percentage proportions of each group. Republicans vote more the Democrats of but there are more Democrats so they smaller percentage turnout to match the Republicans the the but a lot of registered voters or people who are Democrat but they have no intention of ever voting or people who classify themselves as Democrats. So you've got some biases By looking at registered voters but it's sued to look at likely voters registered voters. The best you could do. They try to balance it out as best they can. It's still certainly leads to the Democrats in a little bit. But it's not GOI Loyd. It's not good for the Democrats and the battlegrounds is saying that about the registered voter bowl If it is registered voters as opposed to likely likely voters. It's not good particularly for Standards and for Warren. There is something you here in Georgia listening to be right now need to know. This is the New York Times not favorable to the president. This is a college policy in college. Which College College polling I I? I'm a little skeptical but see in college actually does do good polling which is why the New York Times went with them. But let me give you the swing states in the poll Michigan Pennsylvania Wisconsin Florida Florida Arizona in North Carolina Michigan Pennsylvania. Wisconsin Florida Boorda Arizona North Carolina if you needed in alphabetical order because that totally confuses you Arizona. Florida Florida Michigan North Carolina Pennsylvania. Wisconsin notice the state. That's not on the list. Georgia is not on the list. As much is the Democrats want to make it a swing state. It is not on the list of swing states for the New York Times right now that that's that's actually a very interesting point that you need to note here that it is not considered Arizona a state eight. That always goes. Republican is listed as a swing state. But Georgia is not Florida is listed as a swing state but Georgia is not North Carolina is listed as a swing state but Georgia is not. That's pretty notable that they're not considering Georgia's week say. But how do the candidates fair this I find to be very interesting. In North Carolina a state that looks like it may have trended Democrat. Donald Trump Beats Joe Biden Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. The three democratic frontrunners in Arizona. The President Beats Bernie Sanders but loses to Joe Biden Elizabeth Warren in Florida the President Beat Sanders and Warren Loses to Biden in Wisconsin. He's even with Elizabeth Warren in loses to Sanders Sanders and Biden in Pennsylvania Guineas even with Sanders and loses too sanders and Biden and in Michigan. He's tied with Biden Sanders would beat him and he would beat. Elizabeth Warren allegedly allegedly now. There's there's data here that we need to process particularly Elizabeth. Warren Elizabeth. Warren is becoming the hot new thing for the Democrats. The the the media has been trying gene to make Elizabeth. Warren happened for a while now. And she's having a real hard time in fact even the Biden campaign assistance roller ability or let me play this clip from the Biden campaign. Cap About Elizabeth Warren. Speak all night so you know. We know that we're connecting with voters. Voters are responding. Because they want somebody who has a record of progressive aggressive accomplishment. He is the person in this race. Who's actually gotten things done? He's actually made change you reference Medicare for all and and you know Senator Warren I think has Spent many months not answering the question about whether or not recently but not in a straightforward way because every day I from the right the right and it shows that the employer tax that she's putting four nine trillion dollars in new employer taxes. Axes that are going to be passed along to employees. She has a tax on Financial transactions that's going to impact the the investments considering financial aspects transaction. Important as. Well my point is that she has not been forthcoming about whether that tax is going to hit the middle class. Correct correct. She has not. Voters are deeply skeptical of her again. Let me now let me give you the breakdown on these numbers. You see sense of it in Michigan President trump among registered voters and keep in mind again registered voters. Lean Democrat. So add two points if we're down L.. Likely voters add two points to the polls among registered voters in Michigan Donald Trump would be with worn by six points probably eight points among likely the voters in Pennsylvania. They're tied which means among likely voters probably the president would win by about two percent. Same Wisconsin in Florida. The the president would win by four points. Among registered voters probably six points among likely voters in Arizona. Elizabeth Warren is up to the president among registered voters among likely voters they're probably tied in North Carolina. The president's up three up five among likely voters so in other words the president would win all of the states more likely than not that he won in two thousand sixteen is if Elizabeth warns the nominee and now consider Bernie Sanders again. Add Two points points for likely voters so among registered voters sanders is up to Michigan so tied with the president among likely voters in Pennsylvania Sanders is up one so the president is probably one point ahead of Sanders among likely voters in Pennsylvania. Vania in Wisconsin Sanders is up to so probably tied with President among likely voters in Florida. The president has already up a point. Point among registered voters so up three with likely same in Arizona President up one with registered three with likely North Carolina. The president is up three with registered. Probably up five same with Elizabeth Warren Only Joe Biden gives donald trump run for his money. Right now Biden is up three in Pennsylvania. You add in late make it likely voters. You probably have one same in Wisconsin. Up One in Florida Biden is right now UP-TO so they're probably tied among likely voters in Arizona binds up five so I mean he is actually up three points among likely voters. Probably the president is up to North Carolina among registered voters so probably up four among likely voters so the president could potentially hold Michigan and he could hold North Carolina it's Biden Heighten Biden gives him the strongest run for the Money Warren and Sanders. Do not so there. There are a couple of takeaways here that that you need to understand and I realized this is number seven. Don't like do numbers heavy on radio because it kind of gets muddied But let me give give you this in a nutshell. Now that I've I've done the deep dive on this for you. Elizabeth Warren does badly against Donald Trump among even registered voters in the registered voter pool tins to Lean Democrat. You get closer to likely voters. She does even worse against the President and yeah the Democrats looks set to replace Joe Biden with her because Biden there's still stumbling around the problem with ward has though his black voters black voters Do Not like Elizabeth Warren. They're having a hard time connecting with her Bernie. Sanders has stained power. Power for millennials. But he's not going to be the nominee Bernie Sanders is running out of steam. Joe Biden is running out of money and that gives Elizabeth Warren advantage into the democratic campaign. which just one reason so? Many pollsters are focusing on right. Now you need to understand that that the national polling shaping coverage of these candidates The National Polling shows that Elizabeth Warren auras going up. So the media's giving her more attention which creates a feedback loop into the polling until the media starts going negative honor. The media has been working so hard to make Elizabeth Warren Happen. They're having a hard hard time going negative on the one they wanted but it's happening with the battleground polling. That's why people are so upset with Cohen. Today is because the left really wants Elizabeth Warren going to happen and here comes Nate Cohen for the New York Times. Say Wait a second guys you make Elizabeth Warren. The Democratic nominee Donald trump is going to get reelected and people are gasping. How can this be I? I realized that in our bubbles progressive and conservative but both Progressive Kevin Conservative in our bubbles. We have a hard time accepting that if we like or hate someone the other side could create them. We see all the the time that this situation Where we have voters who are not Democrat? They're not Republican looking and they make up their own mind and they decide. You don't like this person but I like their policies and the left is having a hard time coming to terms with Donald Trump. There are a lot of independent voters out there now. Granted independent voters tend to be typically class Republican voters but more than that there are a lot of voters out there who think you know. I don't like Donald Trump but this woman scares me her plan to tax my employers tax my small business to tax my investment income tax. My money it scares them and it turns out as much as people don't like President Trump There so much that they dislike about these Democratic candidates that the president could win reelection. And there here is another takeaway here that you need to understand. This overshadows impeachment right now. The Democrats have nothing on the president with which to impeach him. They do not have a bipartisan impeachment process. If they're not going to have a bipartisan impeachment process and the Republicans hold the line. They're not going to be able to impeach the president. It all looks to be in vain Ain in fact I've got some audio. I'll play for here to bit. Voters simply do not care. They do not care about impeachment. It is not something that the voters are energized by or enthused by their thinking. We're less than a year now from the election. Just let us decide and the Democrats are playing into the president strengths here because because as they make Elizabeth Warren the nominee and the poll show Elizabeth. Warren would lose to the president. The Democrats pushed impeachment. Just give him an argument of listen. They're trying to get rid of me. Because they beat Elizabeth Warren and that again build a feedback loop last takeaway here Georgia's not on the list. There are for a Lotta people who want to make Georgia happen for the Democrats including Stacey Abrams. George is not on the list Georgia may become a battleground state. But it's not going to be a swing state. Georgia certainly has issues. The Republicans cannot take advantage of Georgia. They can't take it for granted but it's not going to be a swing state. It's GonNa be a battleground state in that. Democrats will put money into Georgia to make Republicans play here so that Republicans can't spend money elsewhere. It's a chess game. If the Democrats have more money than the Republicans the Democrats put money into Georgia to force the Republicans to put money in Georgia. So Republicans can't put money somewhere else. That's that's the nature of Georgia right. Now Georgia is going to be a money sink for the candidates. George is not actually going to be employed for the Democrats except to the extent that their world state legislative seats in the suburbs. You know there's a big list out today that the top ten most Vulnerable House Democrats Lucy. Macbeth is none of the top ten. The Republicans are not making a huge play to pick off. Lucy McGrath right now. They may later but they're not right now but the Democrats do understand fundamentally that Georgia is not a swing state it's just a state where they can make republicans nervous about the state legislature for redistricting thirteen to force Republican money into the state and keep it out of other areas. It is all Georgia's strategic game for the Democrats in terms of money not actually in terms of votes. The governor has added more to his health. CARE plan changes. I want to talk about his health. Care Plan When we come back just given the the dynamics of it I I want to hold it because this is a short segment you know let me let me deviate from the my show outline of what I was GonNa talk about right now. I want to mention this So I I took a break this weekend. reason I wasn't here yesterday. I do not do vacations. Well You you talk to any member of my family and they will attest to you that I am a complete workaholic. I I really am blessed that I love my job. The the problem is that it. It often often interferes with my work life balance with my family. And it's going to be mindful love that I could sit in my office the entire day in work and right and Dan in read and and do show prep and completely ignore that. I've got a family on the other side of the door. It is. It is something that I struggle with and I have been in inordinately stressed out. You know launching this show The it's not easy to launch a show like this particularly. We're not working with syndicator. We're doing it all ourselves. Where our own on ads world affiliate relations Trying to grow the show in addition to maintaining another show and a website. And and all this other stuff a it's it's been stressing me out so some good friends of mine just finally decided you know what we're taking you on a trip We went out West for for three days four days and end confiscated my electronics. From me I could not work. All I could do was have a good time and it is. It's something I needed You'll I spend my entire day. I mean my personal motto is why pray when I can worry and I got a little worrying in my life and it was nice to be distracted from all of it for a few days. I needed I needed the richer now. The downside is that I was on the West out west in all the coasts. It was precisely but I was in the Pacific Time Zone. which has got me thoroughly? Messed up today Benadryl. Last night to go to sleep. I'm still feeling the lag affects to some degree of it. My brain brain fog slowly lifting here as kind of a cloudy day outside. I can see how the window but man. It was necessary that the ability to unplug for just a few days in not think about everything that's going on Mattered and it was nice to be with friends as a to do that with WHO. I wasn't the guy on the radio to them. I was just afraid of their It's it's been a hard thing to get used to beat on. TV and radio a he in some cases developing friendships with people who view. Moore's the guy on the radio than just someone they WANNA hang out with and all we did was hang out We watched I do not recommend it. You would be horribly offended but the movie Good boys I found to be hysterical And sat on the couch on Saturday. Night with a buddy of mine and we watch that movie and died laughing the entire time. And and that's why I haven't done anything like this in Gosh on it I I. I don't know that I've done anything like this before. And he was just not gonNA start making this a yearly thing. It was a lot of fun. So I highly recommend the actually unplugging talking. I can now say I've practiced what I'm preaching because I've always been someone to tell people yet.

Harley Hampton Henry County Hiram Lee County Lilburn Locust Grove mcdonagh Monroe. Moro Newnan nor cross. Rome stockbridge Valdosta Watkins Villain White County. there are also in the Athens Clarke County area. There's a lost. I think that's on the ballot today. The lot of counties have splice on the ballot today they put them on the ballot. Interestingly enough in odd numbered years more often the not because you have such a low turn out in odd numbered years only the people who really want the rest of us to pay higher taxes. Turn out and show up at the polls calls to vote for the lost. They put them on these ballots to make sure that's happening now. They're also elections in other parts of the country Louisiana Kentucky Mississippi. The Virginia's Virginia State legislature is up on the ballot. Today Democrats expected to completely take over the state legislature Virginia The media is going to be making the some of the racists. Keep in mind though. Are I'm sorry the Louisiana Gubernatorial race. It's next week. It's not this week. It's Kentucky and Mississippi. Today Matt Bevin the President's. It's been campaigning for him. The Democrat in Kentucky was expected to be widely ahead of him and collapsed at the last minute the Democrats in in in Kentucky divided and the Republicans rallying around that Bevan. The president has gone out there and campaign for him. Done big rally there same in Mississippi. Big Rally there as well and We'll see how those racist or not we can talk about him. Tomorrow is the only reason to talk about him as if things go really badly against the Republicans which Democrats are hoping otherwise wise. You won't hear any news now. Let's get into the governor's plan for Medicaid. There are criticisms already that the governor will not cover sure enough of the poor here. Here's essentially what you need to know. The people who get screwed the most in healthcare in this country are the working. Poor the the people who have jobs and they can't get benefits under obamacare. The obamacare disincentivize poor people working and the reason being is because the healthcare costs for the working poor people who have a job and make less than thirty thousand dollars a year. The healthcare costs for those people went up and the taxes on those people went up at a higher percentage of of earnings than for anyone else to pay for people who don't work to get healthcare. That's the reality of it The people who don't work mark who need healthcare they go onto Medicaid. There are working poor people in this country who they don't qualify for Medicaid because they have a job that puts them outside of certain poverty criteria for Medicaid and they need health insurance and obamacare cost their costs to go up and the media dances rather subjects. The Democrats Democrats deny it's true but every objective study has shown repeatedly that the working poor in this country had their healthcare costs. Go up more than anyone else because of Obamacare so the governor wants to deal with that situation and according to the HEC tens of thousands of poor Georgians could receive Medicaid or subsidized subsidized employer. Health Insurance under the second part of a wide-ranging proposal by the governor unveiled Monday seeking to reveal health care costs. Now you should know tomorrow evening gene. I'm going to interview the governor so on Thursday. I'll bring you the audio of our interview here talking about his health. Care Waiver in stuff that they're calling this is Georgia pathways proposal. One of the things that the governor intends to do is require that these people people who get it. They're either working or volunteering. His proposal it's known as an eleven fifteen waiver goes after the state's poorest residents targets them to give them health care. There are four hundred eight thousand adult Georgians who make less than the federal poverty limit which is about twelve thousand dollars a year. Sure but they do not qualify for Medicaid. The governor estimates a fraction of those about fifty thousand people will be enrolled under his plan. They need coverage but they've run out of realistic options. We will shake up the status quo give four hundred eight thousand Georgians the opportunity to purchase affordable health insurance. We will bring hope to what me think is a hopeless situation. The way that they intend to deal with this is they want to extend Medicaid Eligibility eligiblity to people who have jobs or are enrolled in schools or are engaged in specific types of community service with nonprofits To help the poor lift it themselves out of poverty. Essentially the governor's position is that we should be helping the deserving poor at now I gotta get into a history lesson with you here and I don't mean bore you The the poor in this country used to be divided into two categories the deserving poor and the undeserving poor. Those are cold terms if you go back. Dr Franklin Delano Roosevelt though Franklin Roosevelt would talk about the the working the deserving poor or the working poor. Now what's the difference. Ruined the deserving poor in the undeserving poor well. Franklin Roosevelt talked about this. There are those who through no fault of their own. Have Physical or mental impairment meant or other situations that that occur in life that have put them behind and made them poor and we have an obligation to help those people get get back up on their feet and back into the workforce you know. If we're all of Franklin Roosevelt's problems were things. Roosevelt recognize that there is value to hard work and trying to get people work. I mean that was the whole point of the new deal during the recession during the depression was to put people into work not just give government handouts but actually give people jobs even who is the government paying them to dig ditches so that they could earn money. There was something soul fulfilling work. You know I mean not to get the illogical here but we see this in the garden of Eden. The Garden of Eden in is God's vision for our relationship between man and God and one of the things God told Adam and Eve was to tend to the garden. There was work when when we get to the new heavens and the new earth. There's going to be work. We're going to have jobs because there's something so rewarding about work. Will you be able to take time off. Yes we'll be the most enjoyable valuable job you've ever had absolutely. I guess I'll talk radio. Show host to Devon it is. It is a wonderful I. I couldn't ask for better job but there will be work. We see. This is the garden of Eden There's something that the Democrats many of the Democrats I think have forgotton And it is reflected their scripture jobs. Working does something and for you working shows you have a level of self worth working shows you you can survive and take care of yourself working shows you Teaches you an ethic at teaches as you and honesty it teaches you with fair. Play and Franklin Roosevelt used to talk about the deserving poor the deserving poor worth throws who for no fault of their own. We're we're on hard times and we needed to help them so we would always have to help others. We could just help get them back on their feet and then there were the undeserving. Poor the people who made terrible life choices and then want to bail out for their own choices in those were the people. The government was going to help during the Johnson Administration and the the Great Society. Eddie Johnson decided that in a country as wealthy as ours. We needed to ditch the distinction between the deserving poor and the undeserving poor. It was just the poor so whether you deserved it or not. The government was going to bail you out governor. Kill it. His plan. I think is more realistic. And what's happening in what needs to happen. There are people who through no fault to their own through physical or mental defect or bad things happening in life have fallen on hard times eggs and there are those with physical mental defect. who were always going to have to help? And those people by larger eligible Zwolle for Medicaid and the government will help keep them on their feet or keep them sustained knowing they're not actually going to be able to work but then there are others who in hard times for lack of education for one of a college degree or high school diploma. They're working to try to make ends meet their barely making ends meet and they can't afford healthcare now because obamacare really did impact those people negatively. So the governor's saying you know what we're GONNA help those people as long as they're working or or they're volunteering. We will subsidize their healthcare costs. There are four hundred eight thousand of these people. The governor actually thinks about fifty to sixty thousand. We'll take advantage of it but one of the things they're going to do. is they. Want to require a job and it should tell you everything you need to know about the left that they're challenging that aspect of it. They don't believe you should have to work for your healthcare. They believe it is right. See this is why the left is fighting this. They fundamentally believe healthcare is a right that you should be able to get it no matter what. So if you're tying healthcare to working that means it's a privilege it's not right. It's it's something you get because you've done something else and they they don't like that and they wanNA fight it and they're probably GONNA tied up in court and some progressive Cortra- say wait a second. You can't tie healthcare to work. The governor's doing it slightly differently. Hoping he can get around rounded essentially what a lot of states did is they did these big plans and they decided it was too much so they wanted to scale it back by adding a work requirement to narrow the people after they'd already given it of course you're like wait a order given this people you can't help her tail it by making work so camp out of the gate is saying we're GonNa make you work out of the gate on this now. Let me read some of the JC on this proposal one part seeks to lower our insurance premiums by setting aside three hundred million dollars in public money the government could pay two insurance firms to cover high cost claims the second piece would also shift two point seven billion dollars dollars in subsidies from federal state control to reduce costs to lower income policyholders. Each of the waiver. Proposals must be approved by the federal government. No guarantee that will happen but they hope so. The proposals also have to stay in court. Scrutiny no simple task because of a series of federal lawsuits that have forced states overall overall how they handle health benefits tied to employment. The revamp will stiff criticism from Democrats and healthcare advocacy ESI groups who say nothing. Short of full Medicaid expansion will cover hundreds of thousands of uninsured Georgians boost the state's economy and shore up the flagging network rural hospitals. It's also met criticism from advocates of waivers. That do more than would grady memorial hospital said. They're deeply disappointed. The governor wants to move quickly though. Oh and there will be a public commenting period now here. Here's what the governor proposes Recipients would have to show eighty hours of activity a month that could be through a job involuntary and community service. Vocational Training fulltime post-secondary education or a limited set of other activities the time would have to be documented in qualify under state guidelines under the state's guidelines community service won't qualify as a registered nonprofit. Taking care of sick relatives would not be eligible. This is not a free hand out. They say Kim's CBS AIDS project that the fifty thousand or so residents that the waiver would cover would change from year to year as they cycle up out of Medicaid and into private insurance available through Bama care to working class owners. His administration pegs the cost for the first year of the program at one hundred twenty eight million dollars with the state on the hook for thirty six million the federal government covering the rest. That's less than half of what the governor expects to put toward his initiative for high income insurance customers which expected cost one hundred four million dollars in the first year. The point is not not to throw money at the problem of the uninsured poor but to push recipients towards full-time employment in other words the governor in offering offering this healthcare plan to the working poor who don't qualify for Medicaid is trying to incentivize them to develop their work ethic and get into the private workforce to boost their income to boost their ability to get healthcare insurance. This is again one of the fundamental differences between left and the right in this country. Right now you know E.. I I I hear all the time now. The left say quoting Jesus the poor. You shall always half and that's true but what Jesus did not say as will always have the exact same poor people just. We'll have the the class of people known as the poor. The left seems to interpret that as the same poor people are always going to be poor and ah the they preclude themselves believing that these poor people could advance of the income ladder and move into the middle class and the upper middle class and improve their livelihood. Republicans on the other hand thing that yes. We will always have the poor but it doesn't have to be the same person we can help. The person who is classified as poor get a job get better earnings and become middle class. freeing-up a spot of subsidy and help for the government for the next person to come through and will elevate that person and this will become a feedback loop where we elevate the poor into the middle. The class and constellations new poor people come in we elevate them to the middle class. Those people that jittery taxes that help us cover the the poor come after them. That seems to me the smarter thinking here but Democrats are just give it up on the idea that you could ever get out of being bore. In as a result their entire structure for government programs is that we should keep the poor always comfortable after bottle it never feeling there need to improve their lot. Life and governor campus. Say you know what we should incentivize people to improve their lot life and get them off the government dime if we can because there will be other people who need it. That seems responsible. Seems outrageous. Democrats would oppose this this where we are in this country man. y'All WanNa Watch heads explode slowed. The president is coming to Atlanta on Friday to launch a new African American coalition. It's going to have an event at the Georgia World Congress Center. Totally GONNA screw up traffic on a Friday afternoon in Atlanta But he's also going to be doing a big high dollar or fundraiser. In buckhead to support David Purdue. Now why is he doing this. Well if you haven't heard turns out that Black Americans are employed at a higher rate. Now that at any time really in American history I think at least since World War Two. So He's expected to highlight statistics that show low unemployment rates for black workers an opportunity zone program tucked into the tax cut legislation. That's designed to encourage investors I to put money into struggling areas. He picked Atlanta for the rollout because of its role as an epicenter of black life in the region fast growing black population. According to using your White House official. The vice president is set to address the crowd as well. Republicans face a daunting challenge wooing black voters in Georgia. Ninety four percent of black voters backed Abrahams over kippen last year's race. The national data is grim to in two thousand sixteen. Only eight percent of black voters cast their ballot for trump. According forty two thousand Eighteen Pew Research Center Poli eight percent of black voters identifies Republican in a recent poll said only four percent of black voters think Donald Donald Trump's actions and policies have benefitted black people. But he's GonNa try and I'm I'm I'm not opposed to him doing it I listen I let me put this myself in trouble Yeah that's me talking to myself whispering out loud on the microphone to you guys Okay AH yeah I'M GONNA say this and I'm going to apologize in advance because some of your route to be really early offended with me. A lot of the black support that the president has can sometimes haimes come across as a little nuts slightly. FRINGY I don't mean to be negative but I'm just telling Linnea You when you look at a lot of support. The president has in minority communities. It is extremely zealous support. They they clearly loved the man But it also comes from a lot of people who seem to be a little eccentric and what I think. Republicans Publican's have to do is they have to seem a little less eccentric and honestly a friend of mine has pointed this out before that if you look at the the Progressive Christian groups oops who support Democrats on the left there will inevitably people come out and say they're Christian they support Elizabeth Warren. And they'll be Wackadoo for g people on that side and they'll be slightly eccentric in their support. And you see this with the president and I look. I don't mean it to be disparaging. I don't mean to be rude. I'm just trying to be honest with you guys. If you're going to support the president try not to look like a nut job. It doesn't matter what your race is. I I realized that the zealous supporters out. There they love him they want to get his face tattooed on they. They WANNA do a rap on their car. That has the president's face all over I get it but I'm just telling you to normal people. A lot of that sort of stuff can be off off putting the president really wants to make a go of building this coalition surround himself with good people who aren't off putting to other people Because they look like they're in a Colt. That's that's my diplomatic way of dealing with this issue. I hope you understand what I mean. Let the listener understand. You'll I would like to think quip for sponsoring this week.

Today is not that day. Eight seven seven nine seven Eric. Eight seven seven nine seven three seven four a two five. We got some problems out there for the Democrats You got the polling. You got a medicare for role not helping them. And you've got well. Let me just play a couple of segments for meet the press. Listen to this but it was remarkable. We just played a clip of you from October. Seventy three eight months later or do we. That's full that's nearly ten months before Nixon resigned. We're at that same points in. We're expecting to have an impeachment inquiry in vote and trial island all that done the next six to eight weeks everything else. It's all more speeded. Up was then instrumentation time everything. Nixon held onto office after. Bob Haldeman gone to jail after John Ehrlichman was going to jail John. Dean was going neither as principal aides. They're all going to jail and then start stuff starts to leak how that closely ties Nixon to the whole cover John. Dean's at one point. He was the offers thirty five times. When we talked about this cover up and yet he was able to hang on? I think in part because the system took it was a more deliberate process as a more deliberate methodical process. They've sped ended up. Well there's a problem with their speed. The public imagination is not caught up to listen to this from meet the press. We went out and tried to find some voters guys to talk about impeachment. We we had a bring it up to them. Here's what they told us just a waste of time. You kids quite a tomboy. Look I think we have a system to checks and balances and the wish work. Is that You know the House the Senate should do what is set out in the constitution a bed the document and there is absolutely nothing concerning to me one president to absolutely elaine. These were in the early states. Yeah Yeah they are yes yes yes they are. They're having to go out and bring it up to the voters for the voters care about. It's not just them to listen to this from CNN. Now Wisconsin Democrats. I'd say they knocked on more than fifty thousand doors just this weekend. That is double the number. That trump won the Wisconsin by two thousand sixteen. And here's some instant polling for for you. Jake I asked the party just now. Did anyone bring up impeachment. And they said No. It is not something that Democrats are bringing up. Organically plane in Wisconsin. The they've knocked on more wars than Donald trump than votes. Donald Trump. One in Wisconsin and the Democrats are not naughty knbr the Democratic voters the ones. They're doing this for. They're not even bringing up impeachment when you've got Democrats admitting they're not bringing up impeachment. The is really striking. The problems that they're having. It's not only that listened to this. This is Erin an elmore talking on CNBC about this data point. That's gone overlooked by Democrats saying for the President you would say and we saw it in the Poli- I think the New York Times. CNN College Point today is that if he does pull much better in these key battleground states he does he does nationally. And you know what else is interesting. I was looking at who women are donating their money to all the male candidates at eight forty six percents for trump forty for Biden and in the thirties. Four Buddha Jack. Donald trump forty six percent of the money women are giving to male candidates is going to donald trump. He's getting more money than Joe. Biden or Bernie Sanders or Pete Buddha footage donald trump is getting more money than from women in the poll suggests that women don't like Donald Trump and yet the writing him checks righty anymore checks in the art of the Democrats. It's actually pretty interesting. Actually pretty interesting. That we've got this money they're The the way the money is is is being divvied. Up is going to the precedent it's benefiting him and this goes back to who I mentioned battleground polls earlier. I mean listen to this from CNN just give you a kind of reminder of the set the stage here so remember twenty sixteen president presidential campaign. What do we and we saw? Nationwide Hillary Clinton beating down from forty eight forty six but in the six closest states. That trump won that helped determine the Electoral College Arizona Florida Michigan North Carolina Pennsylvania. Wisconsin trump won by point. So let's take a look at these new battleground polls and compare them to what we're seeing nationally and we see a trend line here that is consistent instant what happened in two thousand sixteen so nationwide if you take a look at the average pole for twenty twenty from October we see Biden by sander's up by six worn up. I five but take a look at these six closest states again that trump won in two thousand sixteen according to new pulse from the New York Times Santa College. If you average across the six what do we see we see Biden and plus one. We see Sanders actually losing to trump by one and we see Warren trailing a trump by three points. The president is leading worn in those six battleground states by three points. Yes so to sum up all of this together. The president is beating two of the three three Democrats in these battleground states and Democratic voters in these battleground states. They don't care about impeachment the reporters in Washington or having to bring it up. You know what people care about they care about Elizabeth Warren Healthcare Plan. They care about immigration that they care about our southern border they care about our military the rahm Emanuel who helped get obamacare passed. He's coming out forcefully because the Democrats he's coming under attack from Democrats For denouncing uh-huh Medicaid. For All as he says it's not feasible I still believe every argument about the Not about two percent on people. Earning about fifty million or some type of corruption issue. This issue is not going to happen. And it's not the way you actually are you having done the ACA for Obama kids health care for president as an Clinton the reimportation of pharmaceutical products. In the house. When we'd be Tom delay the politics of this is? She's making this more difficult than it needs to be on the very issue of cost control. It is a pipe dream you are not. We couldn't get when we have fifty eight redemption senators. We couldn't get a public option. What makes you think? And I say this. And the piece Gimme the nine Republicans and that are going to vote for Medicare for all and I will declare New York pizza better than Chicago and it's not going to happen and yet she continues is to push this sabotaging herself in so doing but she believes she believes well. There's another issue happening and and I I need to make sure that we understand what on earth I have no idea what's happening there. Okay I need to discuss. I and I'm sorry I'm I'm seeing texts from my team. Who they're they're they're upset with my monologue? I tried to phrases. This is our. I think you'll know what I mean about. Supporters who step outside The the the their group who support the other side they they tend to be the the unique trendsetters. We'll we'll put it that way We we need to talk about this issue. This is actually a significant issue. It happened overnight. If you're turning on the news this morning you haven't heard about it. I assure you you're going to be hearing about it. This is from the New York Times They put it up this morning at least nine members of a Mormon family in Mexico or killed an ambush. Six children were among the victims of the massacre attributed organized crime relative say other children were rescued. Some of whom hit along the roadside. At least three women and six children and a prominent local Mormon family were killed on Monday when their vehicles were ambushed in northern Mexico. Oh by gunmen believed to be members of organized. Crime Family member said the attack alarmed nation already reeling from record violence of the year members of the Lavar and family dual dual Mexican American citizens. Who have been living in a fundamentalist Mormon community at the border region for decades were attacked in three separate vehicles? When the gunman attack several family members for said they described the terrifying scene in which one child was gunned down while running away while others were trapped inside a burning car? Two of the children killed were less than a year old. The family remember said Kenny. Lebron a cousin of the women driving the vehicle Senate telephone interviews. He feared the death. Toll could grow higher we know there are babies tied in a car seat that are burning because of some twisted evil in the world is just hard to cope with that. Mexico has suffered a string of violent episodes in the last month. Each is devastating and infuriating for citizens is the last President Oberdorf said during a morning news conference on Monday the region where the attack took place has been a very violent area for many years. Let me put this in perspective for you. The area where this violent attack Jack happened killing women and children happened just on the other side of the American border. These are American considerations who were killed. This is not good for Mexico and it almost forces some level of American American response. In fact president trump on Tuesday offered to help Mexico a radical the cartels the president he the these were his tweets. This is is the time for Mexico with the help from the United States to wage war on the drug cartels and wipe them off the face of the earth. We merely await a call from your great new president it the cartels have become so large and powerful. You sometimes need an army to defeat an army it. It doesn't get a lot of coverage from the American press in large part. Because I I I. This is me speculating. It's me speculating. I think the media doesn't cover the collapse of the Mexican state because they're so sensitive to accusations of racism and in the age of Donald Trump. They don't WanNa they don't want to add fuel to the fire of the president's restrictions immigration policies and so they're not giving people people really the full picture of what's going on in Mexico. The reality is the Mexican state is collapsing. It is failing there are Mexican communities that have been wholly cut off from the outside world so to speak Not Not physically cut off but just in terms of governmental the middle structure and communications. They're having to take matters into their own hands. Establishing their own local armies and law enforcement They're not sending taxes to the Mexican government because the Mexican government isn't helping them they're using that money that local communities the Mexican drug cartels are are being helped by an open border. And this again goes to why I think so. Much of what the media covers is slanted is because the media can't believe that the open border between between Mexico and the United States is having an impact but in fact the Mexican drug cartels ability to spill drugs over to this country. Easily over the border is is one of the major issues that Mexico was having it is propping up the drug cartels. You close the border. You have a financial impact on the Mexican drug cartels. It's one reason the president resin wants to do it. You know what actually. Interestingly enough Caused the problems with Mexican drug cartel legalization of recreational marijuana in this country has hurt. The Mexican drug cartels tells They were growing so much marijuana in Mexico to smuggle across into the American Across the American Border Win California. Colorado Washington state Alaskan others legalized the growing marijuana for sale marijuana. It's suddenly cut into their profit margin because domestic American marijuana was hurting the drug cartels so the the drug cartels have responded by focusing on other drugs harder substances heroin cocaine crack Amphetamines felonies methamphetamines Illegal prescriptions things. Like that that they're pushing across the border to try to make up for the loss of sales of marijuana in the United States and they're they're pushing out a bunch of cocaine into the United States rich white people drug Mexico is is in a civil war. They don't want to call it that they don't want to admit that their state is collapsing but there are areas of Mexico. The government is unable to function in and some of those areas are increasingly along the American border in the eighteen. Hundreds we send American generals into Mexico with the American army tanks to subdue outlaw Mexican gangs that were harassing American citizens in Mexico. There Chris Precedent for an American incursion into Mexico. We just had an American family massacred in Mexico. Now will it matter that they're also Mexican citizens maybe but this is another reminder of the violence on the border right on the border American citizens nine of them. Women and children gunned down. Children shot in the back as they tried to run away. Women murdered burned alive in their cars. This demands an American response in as long as our borders unsecure as long as the Mexican drug cartels can get into this country so easily. The situation is not going to change. The president has good arguments for border security and this in and of itself off could become a campaign issue. What did I tell you? The didn't entire monologue on this evince matter events matter more than demography everyone of the left thinks demography is destiny. No events or destiny you got American citizens being gunned down along the border in Mexico you have the the Mexican drug cartels increasing hostility towards the United States and in Mexico these these sorts of things matter when it comes presidential campaign particularly when the Democrats are so focused on healthcare and and other issues outside of our hemisphere and this is our own backyard backyard. It matters and the president has an opportunity to do something about it. He's probably not going to miss that opportunity so the Atlanta Journal Constitution and the ACLU Georgia are at odds over the voter registration purge the ACLU says it identified seventy seventy people. It claimed voted in November eighteen But are targeted for cancellation. And so there's proof set wave. They found seventy people on the list of the three hundred thirteen thousand two hundred forty three people who are to be purged from the voter rolls therefore they say the voter roll. Liz canceling legitimate people. There is a problem though. There's a problem The Secretary of State's Office did not list though seventy people on the list to be purged. Essentially what the ACLU did is they. They ran numbers and they found seventy people who were likely to be on the list and they're not actually on the Persian the ACLU as using those seventy people likely to be on the list as proof the purchase flawed and the Atlanta Journal Constitution is calling the Aclu out this let me read this paragraph the ACO you based its findings on voting records from a month after the twenty eighteen election but a more recent state voting list list obtained last month by the JC shows that no voters who have cast ballots sets since September two thousand sixteen will be cancelled. Now here's the interesting thing of the three hundred thirteen thousand people the AJC has now confirmed sixty. Two percent went sixty. Two percent of them have moved either to different states or two different counties. Ace another words to the AJC. They're only one hundred twenty thousand five hundred sixty one. Registration set cancellation That are matched voters. Who Haven't cast a ballot since the spring of two thousand twelve or before who appeared onto a move? So we're talking two hundred twenty thousand five hundred sixty one. People whose ballots could be cancers voter-registration nation will be cancelled and they haven't voted. Since at least the primaries of twenty twelve election officials believed most to them have still moved out of state. People have the opportunity to go find them but again the AJC is pointed out that all the ACLU's hysteria over the numbers many of the seventy people identified by the ACLU as questionable cancellations Shinzo and these are people who who may not be cancelled. They appear to have moved away. They filed change of address forms. Their mail was undeliverable or their property. Records show their homes have been sold some of those who have participated in recent elections told WSB TV in Atlanta that they have no intention of voting. And don't care that they're being removed from the state's rules. What how can this be? We're told that the right to vote is sacrosanct. And everyone should do it. Everyone does want to do it and yet here come people say what did you say. We don't want to vote anyway. This is this is manufactured outrage by Democrats Democrats in the ACLU's complacent river the ACLU made a really big stink about the polling places. All what was the county in south Georgia. I can't remember the county name now. County and south was a white carrying China have been White County controlled by Majority Black Democrats. The board of elections run by Democrats and they were closing polling precincts casings and end the ACLU never bothered to point out that the polling precincts that were being close were the ones that the Republicans kept winning. The ones that the Democrats won were. The polling places is that we're going to be kept open. They were closing precincts. That didn't comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act because the county's too poor to make the upgrades to comply so they were going to do is consolidate the counties and the ACLU made a big about it they in the Abrahams campaign. They claimed that this was all part of brand kept trying to suppress the vote. which is what they're trying to do? NL But the Jaycees actually gone through. They've run the numbers they've done the data and it turns out that of the names that the ACLU came up with this people who are going to be unfortunately cancelled they weren't even on the list assed but they had all moved out of state. The state of Georgia is not going to cancel someone's voter registration. Unless they haven't voted in seven years or they have moved out of state if they've moved out of state they're voting in those states. There's no the reason to keep them on the roles and the JC looked at the numbers of this three hundred thirteen thousand people. A hundred hundred ninety some odd thousand of them have moved out of state eight or they've moved to a different county register now in that county. We're only talking one hundred twenty thousand people who we can't find the J. C.. went out and found some of them and guess what they had the audacity acidy to say they're not gonNa vote anyway so they don't care. You're not supposed to say stuff like that. I need to apologize to my audience. I Set the recipe. The sweet potato pie recipe to go out on Friday in the night headed off on a guys weekend and apparently did not go out and I only I just now realized it so I will send out the sweet potato pie recipe As quick as I can I was actually going to so The if you're just tuning in welcome at his Eric Erickson here and you can call in eight seven seven nine seven Eric. Eight seven seven nine seven three seven four to five. I have had a series vacations this year and I have wound up working on every single one of those vacations and I have not actually had a vacation. Where completely unplugged in? I don't know I don't know that I've had vacation where I've completely unplugged and and this weekend some buddies of mine decided they were taking me to Vegas They took care of everything All I had to do a show up and I showed up and my electrics were confiscated was not allowed to work I usually could sneak down a little bit but by and large judge I was not allowed to work and I wasn't allowed to watch. The news wasn't allowed to go places where the news was on. I was completely prohibited and it was glorious. I I really now realize I've done it now. I've done it I survived. The world did not end. I can actually. I can do this. I can go away I can spend time with friends and family and not have to work and it was great But I've been playing catch up on the plane ride home yesterday trying to play catch up As the worries in in work stresses began to steal back in being more and more mindful of how important it is to actually have friends you can relate to and have conversations with and enjoy each other's company and not make it all about work. I was actually telling the body mind this weekend that Charlie my producer. I I gotta catch myself because I find myself obsessing and when you're talking about work with Charlie all the time and He's a friend I I feel like I'm burning him by wanted to talk about work all the time. Of course he he does too but at the same time you know what I mean We it it's just it's hard sometimes to check out of work particularly if like me you love your job. Audit is what you think about. It consumes a great portion of your time but I been finding more and more in the last year that I am putting work ahead of even family and I'm bad at practicing what I preach in that regard because I'm constantly thinking about work. The growth of the show would affiliates doing your target. What advertiser doing talk? We're going to get advertisers. How's the Revenue Stream And I don't have a great businesses myself and the it is. I've realized I've got a surround myself with people who have a better business than I do. because I can show up and talk and I I know and the ratings prove it then I can sit down and I can have a conversation with you guys by the microphone and it is in in some way entertaining and meaningful enough to people that they wanna tune in every day and listen to it in and I appreciate you guys very much for doing that. Particular show this new and a lot of stations are no no longer getting the calls. Wanting to know why the voice that I replaced as to longer there They've got me and they're getting used to it and I appreciate it and and I value it I really do. But that's what I WANNA do. I want to be on camera. I want to be on the microphone. I WANNA talk. I wouldn't want to keep people company. I WANNA make sure. They know they're not alone. Sort of the the whole purposes of what I do in radio and listen a lot of people that you can just show up on radio read the headlines or whatnot and that's it but no you you've got to at least make it compelling you gotTa make people learn something You gotta be a place where smart people can get even smarter. You got to be a place where people can be entertained. You keep him company on the ride home or on the ride to work or when in their in their office and the board and they don't WanNa talk to their co workers they turn me on. And who's that voice in your office so I appreciate it. It's it's doing radio something I never expected to do. I fell into it completely by accident but along the way I have realized that it e- my strong suit suit is. I can sit down and I can talk until I'm blue in the face about a topic and try to make it as engaging as I possibly can But I do not have the the business business depth or since it's not my background Yes I was a corporate lawyer. I could incorporate businesses I can do it with my eyes closed still and I can help get people in the right direction but I need other people to help me get in the right direction. That's one reason I like my Buddy Chris. Birds over a dynamic money which by the way I should say. This hour is sponsored. Obser- by dynamic money If you WANNA get yourself and sound financial footing go talk to Chris. Burns at dynamic money the basically think of him him as a general physician for your finances where he's not GonNa make a commission off of you selling you products. But he's going to go get with Your Life Insurance Guy Your lawyer your state guy your stocks and bonds guy your your retirement planner. He's going to get them all together. Make sure they're all the same page so that he's got a plan for you for life to to get you in financial shape and he's GonNa work with those people if you want him to manage your money in full disclosure. My wife and I let Chris Manage our money He'll do it but he doesn't have a two. You can keep it with Fidelity Merrill Lynch wherever vanguard and he'll just get your right strategy growing and moving forward so go to dynamic money dot com if you need help ease like Daveramsey Dave Ramsey. But he'll let chiefs credit card. But so Chris and Charlie Philip just having people that I can talk to about business is you got to have people who are experts in areas. You're not I'm on an email list right. Nell were of this Mexican story. That I was talking about is circulated and there actually is some very interesting data about the family in Mexico that They they're nuts farmers in northern Mexico and they've lived in the area for a very long time time They had some very big business deals there and there are others who were tried to cut into their business. Deals It just it's it's. There's a rivalry taking shape south of the border. There's gang violence south of the border. And it seems that the American media has a hard time figuring out how they're gonNA deal with it because they don't WanNa play into Donald Trump's hands because they're so against the president's immigrations plans is difficult to get the truth out of what's happening in Mexico because I think if people understood what was happening in Mexico they would be more concerned turned in more willing to agree with the president that the border needs to be secured then so the media is essentially trying to downplay stories in Mexico of violence in order to avoid avoid. The president's immigration plans getting traction. And that's something. We should all be concerned about now. I I need their circle. Back to the issue of Aaron Calvin and cancel culture. Aaron Calvin is the reporter who worked for the Des Moines Register. Sister and Aaron Calvin did a profile of who he calls local celebrity Carson King and it cost him MS job. Carson King is the twenty something who stood up on ESPN and held up a sign saying send me beer money and had his vin Mo- number Where people could send him a text and he could get beer money me and he got over a million dollars from people by holding up that sign and he decided to partner with local children's Hospital comporting with the local children's hospital He would give them money. Anheuser Busch partnered with him. They were GonNa make even more money. They were GONNA put his name on cans and then Aaron Calvin showed up. Let me read you a little bit of Aaron Calvin who wrote the profile of Carson King. We King announced that his fundraiser had crossed the million dollar mark. I decided to write a longer profile of him. I drove out to his home Minna suburb of Des Moines. I've been talking with King via Facebook Messenger. But this was my first time meeting him in person he was unable and struck me as a genuinely kind. And well-meaning person as I began writing an editor requested that I run a background check on King. This is standard practice at the register as it is for many newspapers when reporting on public figures. I looked at King's court records as well as public social media and I found a few racist jokes. He tweeted in highschool in context. I could see these had been references to sketches is by the comedian Daniel. Tosh I told my editor about the tweets. It was asked to reach out to king for comment. I believe this was the right thing to do. Performing background checks on public figures is part of a journalist responsibility responsibility. If I had found the tweets others would too I approach king with an understanding. That what you tweet in highschool is not necessarily representative of your beliefs as adults and he duly apologized apologized. I included a brief mention of the offensive tweets and kings apology toward the end of my profile. It was a small moment placed in context of the end of a positive story. The tweets were part of a narrative of growth maturity and compassion. Not An accusation. gotcha moment when I asking about his tweets. I try to communicate. I wasn't trying to bring him down. It was clear to me now though that he was worried about personal blowback blowback as is common in the world of celebrity. Pr He moved to get ahead of the details that would be revealed in the profile. He held a press conference and he. I apologize publicly in a statement given to the local television statements. He noted a register reporter had brought the tweets to his attention. I was not provided the statement. I don't believe kings out implicate me but because he preempted my forthcoming profile. People believed I hadn't intended intended to impugn his character. You know what I can stop reading this garbage. This guy welled up losing his job by by sabotaging king. I want to again and read you a couple of key phrases in here the standard practice at the moines register it just as it is for many newspapers win reporting on public figures performing background checks on public figures is a part of a journalist responsibility but this Guy Carson King is not a public figure. He's a guy who held up a sign on TV. Asking for beer. Money in the media made him famous in this time and time again is what the media does it builds the people up it makes them famous than it seeks to destroy them in. This guy can't seem to understand that he played a role in. He doesn't think it's his fault but not only that he doesn't WanNA still acknowledge that cancel culture exists in fact. He says he was fired. He wasn't canceled. He was fired. But that's the whole point of it. I maybe he takes it to literally. The word cancelled will love not cancelled. I'm still here. No no kid. You're cancelled the media has fired you and good luck getting a job. He's happy go As an act dependents to the Columbia Journalism Review and right from his side. How he did nothing wrong? And and and he's he's he's a he's a fallout from people going after but he wasn't canceled but he was. Maybe it's cognitive dissonance. I don't know But this guy blew up another person and he got caught in the fallout of his own story. What's interesting is that one? He can't recognize that the person he covered wasn't a public figure. This guy's job Darren Calvin at the register he's the guy who got Calvin who who sabotage Carson King. The kid who got a million dollars beer money by holding up Asahi's Bien and donated to the hospital and Aaron Calvin One cannot accept that Carson King is not a famous person. He can't accept he's not a public person a public personality because his face was on. TV He must be a public persona and therefore east fair game to be covered including clean. All the stuff he did in high school is fair game. Except he's not he's not a public person and this guy doesn't doesn't understand it not only that he doesn't understand that yes the mob did come for for him. He can't accept the mob came for him either. The reason he can't is because he was on social media before all this happened and he was mocking the idea of cancel culture. That cancel culture doesn't exist that the the whole idea behind counterculture isn't real and yet time and time again. We see that it is real where the left-wing mob tries to get someone taken down taken taking out removed from a job removed from the town square where they can speak truth to power. They're not allowed to anymore. They get thrown off social media. They get thrown off a TV. They get thrown off. Radio Radio They're silenced the silencing of the person is cancelling them. But what's more. He laments that there was no union at the Des Moines Register the head of a union member. I believe I would have been more effectively. Had more effective advocate for myself. The day I was fired. The Department of Justice approved a massive merger between Gannett and Gatehouse forming the largest media corporation. The Nation the gatehouse merger will result in a historic monopoly over local news media. And we'll properly will prompt widespread layoffs. This is a progressive kid. Ed Aaron Calvin. He rejects cancel culture. He thinks people who are punished by the social media mob deserve it. He doesn't think he deserves serves it so he doesn't think he was cancelled. Even though he was anything's unionism would be great. progressivism leaks into this because it is is the logic of an insane asylum. progressivism does not make sense. We're we're still in the early days of shaking out the doctrines voteless and this is part of it. Unions unions are good unions would protect him. Cancel culture isn't real but he got cancelled but he wasn't really cancelled. And what did he do. He turned the social media. Mob Bob against a guy who just wanted beer money and when he got so much he donated it to a local hospital for the children. A guy was literally raising money for children's hospital an errand. Calvin turn the sights of a newspaper on this private citizen and now justifies. It wasn't really a private citizen. He got on TV therefore he must be a public persona. So I guess that e I mean by Aaron Calvin logic anyone who appears on the nightly news has the right to a media rectal exam because a their public figure now they've been on TV. That isn't a standard. Anyone should uphold the fact that this kid justifies work. In that way suggest we're still going to have a long way for the media to go. Oh before it begins to recover. Its own credibility because the media has lost its credibility over stuff like this over reporters like this. The media media has real biopsies. The media has real problems in it affects their coverage of Mexico. It affects their coverage of the president affects coverage of private citizens. Who just happen to get a little bit of spotlight? They go after the sports star Dr in College. Who did something dumb on twitter when they were fifteen years old to try to ruin their career in the name of well? They're famous now. This is what we do to famous people. The media continues to affirm the idea that it loves to build people up to tear them down and now it's beginning to tear the media down and honestly I'm Kinda glad glad I was kinda shocked to see the story in the Wall Street Journal It's a good one though irrelevant to those of us here in Georgia a came out over the weekend. The headline if you can manage waffle house you can manage anything. Running a twenty four hour a budget diners glamorous clamorous but it forces leaders to serve others with speed stamina and zero entitlement. This is a piece by Sam Walker in the Wall Street Journal. He's he's a former reporter and editor the Wall Street Journal and the author of a new book the Captain Class A new theory in leadership and he basically studied lead waffle house and his kicking off point was of a young lady from Georgia who Who headed to college? Decided to get a job at Walmart Let me read you some of this. I it's very very very interesting here. Oh what does it take to be a successful waffle house manager. Speed for one thing to meet the goal of serving every customer eight minutes or less the wait staff doesn't bother punching eighteen orders into a computer they write them down in shorthand code. They read them aloud to cooks the cooks remember them by arranging condoms on empty platters. I always wondered about that. A face Lisa mustard packets signifies a pork chop for example if the restaurant is busy or short-staffed managers dive in the company's training program teaches them how to analyze is profit and loss statements but also prepare them to clean and wait tables now. That may sound like stop watch overkill. But the company's President Wall Walt Emmer spoke on a recent podcast. Doing work is good for business. It helps managers earned the trust and respect of their teams while staying connected to the entire Operation Asian. You learn a lot about what's working and what's not once. They tackle the pace. The next challenges endurance simply put waffle. House never closes. There's a crisis. The middle of the night the manager gets a call in. That's a supreme testament to their stamina's called the waffle house index that Fema uses to assess house bats storm was to encourage retention it offers managers bonuses for keeping turnover low to discourage them from overworking people. It expects stores with high sales figures to have higher hire staffing costs to now. Think about this pause pause pause Walmart tries to keep its employees calls else low so minimal employee hours lots of part time people Generate big sales with large lots of part time. People and Walmart does the White House. Does it exactly the opposite. Your store has high sales figures. You better have high staffing costs. Meaning you better be paying people a good salary to keep them and in keeping them to bring others in to also work part time in your waffle house location. The more sales you do the more they expect you to pay people that that cell uh-huh capitalism what a one but in the twenty first century where people want to offload to computers and whatnot. It's it's not very good of these days and yet that's what waffle house does another interesting

"It was a meltdown right after that i mean knock knock who's there kurt suzuki he of the law but he is wearing a gas mask at this time i think i think i get the i just accurately predicted an absolute stinker in game two of the world series z. sabathia like heater up in oh oh yeah okay next pitch lamb oh just next thing you know you almost you could almost see the the odor it was almost like a physical visual abs the episode one four ready y'all's brains wearing a gas mask i know that doesn't translate well for a podcast which is just audio earns was what does this look but again you know i it's not a complete laying an egg is it is it a complete and total stir bob oh my by the way can we can we all agree that they they accidentally slipped one of the old balls in by mistake arms and is not like zoot like i always used to wear suzuki out about his BP because if you've ever like watched BP he was essentially see it coming from a mile away i said hey dallas game to there's going to be a big old stinker no trying to just you know fist himself and shoot the ball over the second basements would have because he could spin and get to the heater in and i was used to make fun of them too because he's got you know pinch that started that started to play out and you're jeered you saw coming tried to fight where it was coming from can that kurtz sukey at bat there's no way he's got that taipower but i have seen kurt suzuki and it's so funny like i don't know what he's done it against the yankees to did it again it's not good someone call it a stinker jared yeah so for those didn't hear episode one thirty nine but you knew it you knew it i knew it and that's why it was something that that's why it was one of my worries mike ninety nineteen washington nationals are the biggest world series underdogs since the two thousand seven colorado rockies who did alligator arms he's got shorter arms and i would use it and that's why you can't get to the pitch down in the zone that's why you screw me on pitches away because it looks like you're reaching halfway across your body bellied he he has for whatever reason i don't know but it just it feels like he has hit some massive home runs against some big time coq au yeah got gears i gotta tell you it's not like relationships lapham away a free tailed seller tuna stunning this is kind of stunning what's been happening in this world series i think we we're going to keep bringing this up but the uh i mean you've got the setting j. b. got seventy six it was a it was out of the twenty five times in the current format two three two teams winning games one and two on the road have gone on to win twenty two postseason as well the bullpen is rested that's what a blowout in game two does for the nets as daniel hudson and sean doolittle continued pretty and the nats are halfway to a world series title and the astros could not look more loss lost game since i believe may twenty third he had not allowed a run on a hit that wasn't homer since due to of MLB network really cool interview with that we have coming up later in the show but this is this is kind of arms are and this is how good the astros up is is getting out of their one one was almost best case scenario because you just don't assume your a twenty five times that's i mean pretty good it's essentially written in the stars at this point they took care of very good team they're not like some cinder i mean in a way i guess they are cinderella story because they had to go through the wildcard they had never wanna postseason series before the team that has won the first two games in a best of seven series they have gone on to win said series twenty two did not win a game in the world series that they played against the boston red sox that year and now here we are two games into the world series here in twenty nineteen august twenty eighth the last time that garrett cole took the l the astros had thirty three wins going to wipe out coal and burland back to back that's just not something you assume we're talking about a guy who's a for sure hall of famer and a guy who's who business they got again i told you that if they get outta here one one that was everybody's almost like and this isn't this is how good the astros to get big outs in big spots there now rested as well as some of the other guys that you might be leaning on and you're going to go into game four or excuse me hear about the houston astros how they are historically great team if there is a percentage of teams it's of course they're good enough to make it to and win a world series but they do have those factors going up against them they are the biggest one who who is really starting to entrench himself i think in that kind of conversation moving forward garrett cole should the dominance persists so to think that you're just going to roll out there and go but really it's really like a three inch movement but he you cover that heater in with the best of them if he's looking for it all buddy and he got it corrobos shared a bowl of of winning a series after losing the first two games at home i'd say the astros are capable of doing that shit going on right now man there's just no other way to slice it there's no other way to slice it when you factor in the the disruption that has occurred in regards to astro season not a very good spot to be in dallas jirga realize that the what is it the road team serve and act that they've already deployed coal verlinden now we're going with the quote unquote other guys that's what we have left to save the dog since two thousand seven and the astros are a historic on a historically great run in terms of winning a world series following that up with a hundred it's like i did not expect the world series to start it off the way that it has in dallas mentioned road team taken the first two games of series they've won got it he sure did carlos pena is on the podcast today did this interview before game l. one one outstanding here you are to you got the opportunity to run a guy in NFL sanchez out there who's been extremely dominant dominant in his outings during this three victories in an appearance and now here they are back in the world series two years later as it has a heavy heavy favourite so in a way same individuals who were digging in making sure that everybody knew this wasn't something that everybody was just welcoming with open arms like it was the teammate whatever and we've continued down the line well now here we are where somebody in the front office who has gone to back conceivably for some of the twenty two out of twenty five in the current two three two format is but that's what i'm saying is that everything that i just laid attention to that you have to because you have to remember a all of the the digging in that occurred initially when zuma's name was kicked around you orleans you've got to get right or you're going to get left behind that's going to be the bottom line so that conversation happened and people have had to answer their questions about as soon as it's just a lot it's just a lot of process it's a lot of time to pass it because there is there are a lot of factors here on one hand like you know the nazis just having a blind eye turn towards the the situation with those sooner that wasn't the case but now those guys some of those individuals are now looking game three in in about as good a shape as you could possibly be right now by the way garrett cole had not players trying to achieve a dream and now you have writers i don't want to say the only thing that thereafter right now is sort of pitting the astros to the wall own for how this is going to go you're a member of this team this is how we view ourselves this is how we view the world of baseball this is how we're approaching it through at this front office member going for what like we had this conversation when we brought homeboy in and now here this is like however you want to tell the public what you were saying and how you meant it and under what context that's all for you to deal with having these outside distractions well it came from inside yeah it's it really is like a very awkward in and look whether or not this is typically a topic that we like to get into because we're baseball guys right you wanna chop it up and really get into the front office shift their shows for that but you have to pay it the astros because that's my team but there are certain individuals that are part of that organization that you just can't get behind and i it really is like a very this is one hundred percent their own doing who else do you blame or who else can you look at them go you know we'd really appreciate not undeniably looked at players as assets perhaps in a revolutionary way and and to their own benefit when it comes to win report the actions of front office member of baseball executive who's who's shouting things at a at a writer who is is very much you know should anybody in that clubhouse be answering the question of you know at what point in time does a guy get four but that's more like historical stuff the the having never wanna postseason series before if we're looking at just twenty nineteen the nats uh-huh to the conversations and the celebration of a roberta region really hit on that one hundred percent of their own making you know no doubt no doubt to get behind the domestic violence awareness and yeah what a what a very shitty situation that the astros have created for themselves in terms of the PR and you need to understand what this is doing right now to our clubhouse what this is too because there is an energy that is felt i'm sorry there is you have feeling that must be to how i mean some of them granted you can come to terms with it and you say i'm just rooting for the for the laundry i'm rooting for astros front office appears to do and a member of that front office uttering that sort of phrase in front of people in that way and really by the comments that have been made since totally not getting what's going on here as to why it's a problem you are absolutely right and my point on top of all this is it sort of get allowed to work his way back into baseball or back into society you know does a player is occurring within the clubhouse i can speak to that in oakland specifically there is a difference between what's going on in the front office in what's going on knew that there was going to be closed player meeting with the veterans of that club and osuna as well and maybe some other individuals just sort of kind of you know setting the on the clubhouse very similar but very different at the same time and that right there speaks to as you jay that's a fucking beautiful point my friend the and losses and building a title contender baby i get it and i think there's i think there is a direct connection between the front office viewing players as situation for the players and even some fans you know you see some of these fans reacting on twitter and it's like they're they're disgusted they're embarrassed i mean what an awkward you know baseball fans who are watching this world series without a dog in the fight the astros before a pitch was even thrown made it very clear who who the the public should be backing ability attacked i'm glad that happened because i feel like the astros as an organization kinda skated on the roberto or sooner it'd be fielding that type of question on the eve of gained three or the day of game two is that something that any one houston astros player world series that is my point that is the impact of this kinda shit and as you said jay the guy in the front office when we talk about culture we often talk about should have to entertain at his locker not at all you're asking his opinion on when is enough enough for a domestic violence culture from the front office and how they're viewing assets because you're watching it play out in real time with acquisitions like osuna and just sort of saying awkward very shitty situation for the fans fans because under no circumstances are you going to support domestic violence and you're not going to making them answer for what has gone on but people want answers and they're thinking what i'm sorry that it's inconvenient that it's during the world series but j. as you alluded is just such like a to value baseball victories over victims of domestic abuse is just such a shitty and i feel like the astros went in they acquired the the closer who's using the fastest of the youngest ever i guess re-offended or done anything to shine a brighter light on his situation so this is square one hundred saves on a bargain rate because no other team wanted to touch him the blue jays like fucking taken we don't want to deal with his ass creates and the houston astros and what i'm saying is i'm not saying the new england patriots are the team that has just looking the other way doesn't care if you've committed murder excuse me a domestic violence offender when is enough enough what is their punishment up what what that's a question that somebody has to answer during the they'll make the move in the face of any sort of backlash hoping that they can get the production and hoping that an individual will keep their nose clean so that they don't have to end early on the shoulders of the front office member squarely serve i mean he's not a re offender but i mean the first offense is hey you're acting like a human being i guess at this point and you don't get credit or special high fives for being a normal human being but he hasn't sir those types of questions here the houston astros have kind of made that same move with those sooner and i don't want to give credit to osuna here because we're not going to hear it thanks for coming in a weird way i mean it's a horrible thing that happened to this journalist who like had her credit thing because there was in the off season they make this trade for roberto osuna who i've had like people in law enforcement in the series and it's the national will and and and go ahead j. no i was going to say i just think it's also interesting that an organization that has ring me you're offended bring me your victimized and let me help them out let me they signed in tokyo fucking brown for crying out loud okay so enough would be like i'm not fucking touching this guy like sorry toronto blue jays but it's like it's not your fault but you're stuck with in canada reach out and they were like it's not public knowledge but i've seen the police report i've seen the pictures like this was some serious fucking shit like this guys are true scumbag and this shitty thing getting shit for it and now that it's rearing its head again during the world series when all eyeballs around the sport of baseball want him representing our organization other teams felt the same way and then the astros like we'll take him you guys just want to get rid of them we'll take them sure no problem and i feel like that is david ross i think he will be an excellent manager somewhere i just don't like the fact that it's the cubs down sort of alarmingly oh to to a nats team that has quickly become the team of destiny for major league baseball you're from the top down right and sometimes there is a clear separation between front offices in the baseball football basketball hockey world into culture offense and it's unfortunate because the houston astros i mean regardless of how this postseason plays out they will have in my opinion at some takes i've got some takes on david ross becoming the next manager of the chicago cubs first and foremost i love donny done a decent job of tarnishing a hell of a legacy that they have started to create agreed agreed it is a doctor cloud but we can move on to some managerial jobs being taken the first one i've got here's on the left out of oregon state luke heimlich i yeah i know what you're talking about i don't recall if they were linked to him doesn't care if you know like i'm not saying that but the new england patriots have definitely been a team that has said you know what bring me your weary was suspended for domestic violence happening were they were the astros a team that was i don't want to say linked to but known to be kicking the tires everyone's like he's going to be a great manager of the red sox and then when when terry francona left higher jason varitek and when bobby valentine got fired higher jason varitek he was still that was like hold on this guy like date moore doesn't want people jerk off yet he's like going to entertain this notion they're confusing yeah that's what it was i mean you're still very much linked to this current team it's you're not you're not that far removed from it like right now i remember when when jason varitek retired former teammates with a bunch of players that were on that team you're also alleging in that city why tarnish it sopher david ross in my opinion searching for a way to recapture what they hadn't sixteen knowing that they've still got some of those pieces in place and who knows maybe it's just i think it's just kind of like yeah let's circle back on that thing that you did remember when you trade it for that guy for a fucking bargain raised is comparison to be made between the new england patriots don't like it because he's best friends with anthony rizzo he was the personal catcher of john lesser it's just too much too soon is it understandable think about it from this side put yourself in the position of a progressive forward thinking organization right now that is we're not gonna have you in the postseason rotation that's not that's that's i mean that's that's your one of your very good friends so second guessing of this because it is a brother type relationship a father son type relationship a mentor pupil type situation going on there with that being said who else do you think would be able to have that kind of conversation with an anthony rizzo who else is going to be able to snatch john lester up by the back of like all right well we need a closer let's exports rate fro sooner oh yeah it wasn't he the guy that got suspended for domestic of of violence like they traded for him while he like i i i would not and it's also the timing of it it wasn't like it was like a year removed from it it would have been bad enough as it is if it was like the following spring and yeah any any rate like i said it's horrible that this has happened because the focus should be on in all honesty the focus should be on a great team in the houston astros that is mr has like a like an ERA over five going into the post season john les biggest pitchers of all time hey in a way that nobody else did when you listen to those world series speeches and you listen to anthony rizzo bring up david ross that's where i can understand your yeah i know the royals were i don't remember any specific other than that okay yeah yeah you're right jabs rose respect and if he's got the information in front of him and he's going to have some help around him then i think this is a good look for everybody around baseball image i would have preferred that he went anywhere else really anywhere else to sort of get that experience like we've seen understand your debts exactly why rossi was brought over that's why rossi was brought over right so i'm with you in your apprehension totally founded one hundred see just how well this type of situation can go if the relationship between this young manager inexperienced with the front book back to starting the house and he wasn't part of that club so just think about what rossi being so i guess recently removed from that group the only individual they can have those kinds of conversations and how the voice carries weight in that type of clubhouse right now so i understand where you're here and baseball is cyclical and baseball we will i mean we will find a way to try to repeat success one way or another is a bad move i just you have questions yeah i i definitely am kind of like like if he wanted to maybe that is just a sort of because it's kind of like a player manager type situation right i mean rossi's not hitting eight and he's not going to catch for you on sunday but he has that yeah i'm not saying it's gonna work out i'm not saying it's not going to work out that's that's something that i want to make very clear i'm not saying that dave ross as the manager of the cubs the left ear so we could probably get you some work here down the stretch but right now buddy is just not you and that's going to be the way this goes so david ross might be i'm from i'm just playing devil's advocate here trying to look at it from a different perspective because we give rocko ball deli all the credit in the world for having the ability to connect with a younger we've seen learning curves with first year managers in the big leagues and especially guys that weren't bench coaches or something i you know you're just gonna jump on a baseball field is his teammates carrying him off i mean after a world series championship why would you risk that why i mean like it it is just a little bit of shift in a different direction that can get us back on track so we bring a guy who impacted this buried club see there's there's there's genuine interest in being a manager and wanting to get back in the clubhouse and be around the boys the team that you wanna world series with and ended your career with but opposite good and he can handle and continue to control the clubhouse and command the respect of former teammates which is not an easy task will then you might have i mean there's going to be times when he doesn't make a decision that the media agrees with were that the fans agree with your now wagering right into being the manager of a big league team there's definitely a learning curve there and also just the fact that like the last memory that we have of david ross what are you gonna do if anthony rizzo needs to be moved out in the lineup is a conversation that you're gonna wanna have what are you gonna do if john lewis your legendary status in chicago for what i mean like if you don't if you don't win the division you don't win the world series or whatever it back to where they want to be to help his cowboy hat and go yo johnny the shit's just not down in the zone like we needed to it sliding in an eight cut and right now so maybe in a smaller body work maybe see when it comes where everyone is sort of like i now we get a fire david ross who is a legend from the most legendary get him back to where they want to be sure every manager is hired to be fired they're all they all know that they all understand that like the day i'm like certainly more than most managers major league baseball that are named i think he has a legitimately i think his person analogy is legitimately engaging and legitimately bridge building like i see that part of it i see why he was the force in the cubs clubhouse that he that he was in twenty sororities career he won the world series and then they were really good but fell short every other year that are already in philly but the idea is i just don't know that they are comfortable or a player is comfortable enough to lash out to that degree if there's a certain level sixteen in two thousand fifteen i hear ya like from a legacy standpoint i hear you because i feel like we cycle through managers faster than we ever had and feel like they should go in and blow some shit up like that to that degree i don't know if that decision gets made if joe girardi is your in fourteen years or whatever nowadays is asked to be out on the streets yeah joe girardi basically that's basically a bunch that's a may amazing that a team that underachieved as significantly the phillies did would find a way i wouldn't i wouldn't manage the team that i was a legendary player in like i wouldn't do that oh you're just you're you're afraid of success manager in your in your clubhouse you know what i mean so i get it i was more referring to jake ariana's comments about how santana was a problem in the clubhouse and you know what sir david russell the cubs it's a little bit complicated just because like i don't know him well but i have spent at least some time with him either manager and like a fresh voice external widely respected from an organization that has you know as we talked about four definite processes have baseball and other sports joe madden from hero to you know bad taste in your mouth kind of on the way out right like to blame it on a guy who now plays in the other league having a career year without them this is my point lose a set the the idea that maybe a player would of and i don't want to say respect or lack of respect but there there's a certain level of like cash that the managers carrying around you're probably just in kids right now like if you're just getting into the cubs now that might remember david ross is just the cubs manager not like the the glue guy on a championship team that got killed more of a manager is just say goodbye years if you're lucky bruce bocce bobby cox i that one world series win this that other places and that trade off the ease of that transition is probably worth it to him than the risk to to his legacy or his nobles talk of cubs fans i know enough i feel like there was a subset of cubs fans who were legitimately interested in the spot a guy from the astros you know what i mean that's not like a good or bad thing david ross is probably great higher but it is interesting to me that there was at least some sentiment that it's like maybe it's time for a fresh start maybe this twenty sixteen or a we need to move on from it but that's not what they decided right back to it joe girardi and that and that was the two thousand sixteen world series so i hear you on that i do think that like i think there's probably a comfort level for david ross here that just does not fucking goes both ways that yeah no doubt oh yeah that goes both ways from the front office because they've got somebody they know they've got somebody they're comfortable with they've got somebody they know how to commute you got those parents fault then that's their parents fault and they haven't done a good job of explaining who david rosters to them that's their parents fault too i just i like if it were me not as apt to pull some of the shit that you might if you think you know what i've got a guy who's only been here two years like fuck one got more money than that guy to like there's just a lot of right you got carlos slim ten fucking melting what was he was slamming TV's and shit dancing battery TV oh my god what not disciplined players but get through players maybe it's a little bit different but i would say a great baseball mind but if he was indicate with may feel like they've got somebody they could probably sort of help out if you know what i mean i am interested in this though because i do feel like there was a i don't know all thirty in transition like that i just occurred to me as a great transition because i think there's some of the same stuff at play here the culture the phillies you know i feel like his i don't even want a downfall because it's not even like it was a disaster you're afraid of challenge because they're all hired buddy fired they all get fired bobby probably cox tight managers don't exist oh shit that gets start you know stuff that gets factored into that in my opinion you before we move on fully to joe girardi jay offensively i think that he he frames pitches very well he can throw runners out i don't like the fact that ring tone so the fact that like anything would would have been said about his relationship with with gary sanchez and always too hard and i'm there and he's not connecting with the younger players i guess obviously it's it's much different when you're an analyst and you're explaining things on TV versus clubhouse and you're trying to you know actually i would take more of MLB network joe with me the new york yankees clubhouse show with me to to the phillies what are your thoughts on gary says as a defensive catcher and door a team leader or a leader of a pitching staff jared j. sir it was just it didn't work out at the end and and there was you know i i try to sort of imagine what it would have been like to play for it's like if i were a player i think i would have connected just fine with girardi like i think like the way that he explains the game the way that he arctic because if you watch breakdowns on MLB network he's very insightful he's very not softspoken but like toxin like a con yeah well my your bone spurs or a problem in the clubhouse to and there are a bone spur in my in my projection fuck tell you that interrupts pitchers rhythm more than any other catcher that i watched regularly in major league baseball like he has this knack for like oh we're it's a big pitch right now holds valuable thing about j. t. realm you to think about what he represents as far as a potential leader every single fucking time that it's like a big pitch or a big spot in a game he has to come out to talk to the pitcher he like he i think gary sanchez have real any real insight there and think about who joe girardi is think about how joe girardi played the game and think about the things that joe girardi for that team a potential leader for that staff that's somebody that i think the front office can see a relationship developing with between joe and JT and that's where you start to develop your manager on the field that's where you can hopefully start to maybe mould for you that's what i think you have to consider when you start to consider personnel and communication and again culture creating when when you're trying to shift gears from one aspect to another jet i always go back to the to the tweet that you sit out about the phillies transitioning from capitol to a brace some of the analytics that he'll find that teams value hill learn and has learned how to apply those probably a real times i think he'll probably never be that either i think he's somewhere in the media middle the padres hired jas tingler hiring seems like a really smart guy he's managing winter ball right now so he has at least that managerial experience who i had never fucking heard of before today i'll be honest read up about him a little bit after the high a real mutoko into a yada molina type where you feel like you can just roll him out there and not even show up some days and yati is going to be able to handle it initiative competent and maybe that's what this team needs to pack ended compliment it's not even a call being a thing these types of hirings at what point in time does that stop becoming thinking outside the box and start to become a trend or start to be setting in a clubhouse in in a dugout moving forward that's important for teams that are trying to transition to this next phase of applying information in real time to a younger group who might not have the dirt under their cleats in the dirt under their nails that some of the more veteran clubs in the veteran teams that they have been a part of have that's joe comes in so all across the board thumbs up for girardi to the phillies a decent move i do it's fine a shove in the direction of if we feel like you communicate and we're confident in your ability to wrap your head around our approach than okay with it and we're in a position to what's just see how this goes has anyone ever had a more forgettable network has given him an opportunity to look at the game through a different lens it's probably given him an opportunity to continue to catch up with and continued it's not even disrespectful no i don't think he's a top five manager i don't think that's ever going to be joe girardi and i don't think he's a bottom five manager the hiring and it's thinking outside the box for sure well we'll point in time though guys does does that quit outside the box type hiring i think this is one of the another move all i mean with rossi and his move here this is a again what's at all it's on gary sanchez catcher as a staff leader i don't have much of a leader though i don't go ahead no no no i was just gonna say i don't route from everyone that's all the national writers have been tweeting about him he's he's a respected individual i mean i'm not coming in with any hot takes here had instead of just relaying the sign and giving you a little fist pump to motivate ya i gotta come out we gotta talk it's like every single fucking time he does that his game you know having charlie manual around like you're just kind of telling us that you're not really sure who you are or what you're sold on or what are they interested in interviewing dusty baker all four year run as a manager the greenery holy shit oh yeah i i just read as i was reviewing this situation that it was four years the way things are going now like the because we're seeing a lot more seeing it a lot so it's it's a for for me it's more than just a fucking her to the guy before he was hi this is in there i don't i don't know that there's a personal take to have in regards to the individual i think it's more of an assessment of good deaths mission to bring death to plastic aluminum cans are infinitely recyclable facts i was like are you fucking kidding me i will the most memorable thing that he was a part of was when he got caught shirts yeah so i got it right here actually got this can of liquid death ice bill which is as helpful very much so in today's game tingler the byline were good we should anoint him that print up the real economic interests are actually saying it is now better for the earth to just throw your plastic in the and liquid death actually is just really good water it's actually from the mountains in his garbage so it goes straight to a landfill instead of doubling the trucking distance required to ship it to a recycling plant then have it earlier he he himself was a rule five minor league selection by AJ prowler the GM of the padres in two thousand five i like doing here like what's what's going on so so i think joe kind of checks all of those boxes because they'll be longer take boatloads of our plastic thanks a lot china aluminum and metals are the only materials that are actually profitable to recycle environmental which with natural electrolytes and minerals there's nothing like a freezing cold can of water to murder your thirst love the looks the drinking water to those in need but with a good death is only available in a handful of stores you have to order it online all of the aluminum produce since eighteen eighty eight yes over one hundred years ago seventy five percent of it is still in current use plastic is not actually recyclable and do you feel more strongly about david ross cups dennis ross certainly has more upside than joe girardi is a manager i think joe girardi is that although on that livestream that will myers didn't realize that he was on it was like streaming video games being like fucking skippers got us miss so good man so good i never know in these are coming so it's always get from people in random places you think you're actually drinking a beer if you're in the gym in a morning meeting if you're driving lovely sorry continue on the world series you're playing it they're playing right now the now's avid liquid death dot com slash starting or better yet you can click the option to literally sell your soul on their website in exchange for i do cherish these thank you economist economic yup that too literacy is absolutely not a joke okay but i want to go back to one word you took a stab at in there i can more most recycling plants and plastic straight to a landfill because it costs too much to recycle and there's no one will buy the recycled plastic now that china will a free case yes you can actually sign a real soul contract that is a legally binding for eternity so that is liquid death dot com slash starting before we move on it's shipped again to a landfill liquid debt donates five cents from every cans sold to help clean up plastic pollution and bring clean it was like yup got fucked material written all over it in some ways it gives you a little bit of a single little tinguely he's also he's also bilingual you brought that up i think the league talk to him about that you know what and if they did fuck him because that's his fault it's like just go to liquid death dot com slash starting their offering listeners an exclusive deal to get two dollars off every case that's hates was going to impact his psyche like i haven't seen i haven't seen a a nice satchel grab i think in two games that i'm glad can we start there can we start there i was really worried i was really worried that the lack of the lack of demonstrative tomato tomato it's really yeah it is it's something they're all they're all they're all pronunciations for sure dick move power grab i don't have as much to say on that one interesting interesting well one soto not something i'd like to cash street nate jay did you do you think that the that rob manfred and major league baseball selected fourteen years later now he's the manager well yeah AJ playing chess while everybody else's playing checkers AJ saw him listen to performance for four rb is run scored yeah sure he's he's legit he's legit i choosing to wear sunscreen at nighttime like who are you to tell me that i can't fight the sun twenty four hours a day you get to tell us so edited out all the the dick grabs and then i noticed during the world series that he was doing it but he wasn't grabbing his dick and i was like somebody definitely told him not to do that because it's the world series everyone's going to be watching and now like the the power take with the dick grab is this bullshit like team d. but go live right now by the way we're live so fun fact before we move on from the how well the nats have performed or how poorly the astros have performed have the astros performed poorly yes i am going to go with a big fat no comment on this one thank you oh is there a conflict i it's going was an active willing participant in removing that from the power take it's i thought it was really going to affect him it was on instagram before game two and they did this like highlight reel of once sotos power take and they no comment interesting he has been fucking awesome industries oh man the stats on him or just great had a great stat to the point you're about to make this is through the first two games the nationals have had thirty five baserunners they've scored seventeen runs nothing lead the nassar planet but why but once so show and game one and it's kind of just everybody to soto show coming like a viral sensation like everyone sort of taking a notice to it and now it's the world series you got to cut that shit out there's no way that wants soto mystics you take advantage of them unable to execute what were the astros last night with runners in scoring position three for twelve joshi or have the not just taking it i mean look last night's inning and that whole like steamroll like i think that kind of leave a bad taste in your mouth over the course of two games but as i go back to the whole did gear cole he he was responsible for twenty one outs it was it was a decent ball game it was a good ball game but with with the way that the series has gone so far the biggest surprise like what what's the bigger surprise right now on the field was there was a video of the nationals dominican academy yes oh my god electric which was just like damn you kind of forget sometimes not only how far like the rooting for the team stretch but also lights reveal those guys see themselves so yes this is absolutely about the nats again showing everybody that it's important it'd be playing good baseball at the right time and there's nobody better than the washington nationals down the stretch right now nobody buddy side like strasbourg didn't have an amazing game last night but six i think it was six innings to earn seven strikeouts like that plays for sure i don't know the up two to nothing but you know i don't have their stats in front of me but they're they're postseason stats overall both of them have north of a nine hundred eighty s both of them i believe are performing even better because i was like man like he said look this part of my games would i do to kind of get into the pitcher's head you know like i don't wanna i don't wanna take that away from him the astros have had twenty eight baserunners and they've scored seven runs so i mean that's a that's a basically a fifty percent efficiency against a twenty five percent of the ever i will take you to win ball and blow your fucking mind i will blow your mind i guarantee it you will never ever experienced baseball and i you know it's money last night there's they have a lead players in their league players are performing accordingly and when you're wasn't a household name before he is now but would you say that the performance heroes people who have strived just to play on that local team for that city and be the best in their neighborhood shoved it up the ass of the guys on the i'm also glad that like one soto and anthony rendering are playing well at the at the biggest stage to i think there's i think there's something to be said like implicit understanding with stephen strasburg that like he was never going to meet the expectations that greeted him when he was drafted and when he debuted but i think this is definitely more the case of the washington nationals cause to the point of beating teams that's how you beat teams you take advantage of their like that WBZ type shit in the middle of their season with nowhere near as many big leaguers but we're talking local legends locally wants soda they're like holy shit i can be that guy i like it's a legitimate inspiration which abso fucking cool that is that is meant that is why i have made in your baseball and getting those young stars front and center is an important thing having soto i mean really really come through there was i think the coolest thing i saw last night other than the actor in that in the tube limited to world series games like it's good not only to be winning but when your signature players are also performing at a very high level that also goes for the pitching spirit expectations that we had for strasbourg maybe the most hyped draft drafted pitcher of our lifetimes maybe probably is it fair to say hey like i feel like everybody's like yeah he's really good stephen strasburg is great he's been awesome for the nationals but like he's never been able to get to like those catlike strategy january right up until spring training or close to spring training because there's guys who like play all the way up until the crow the cdc heavy other side of the island that's what winter brings you the fucking world series energy is great the WBZ energy that you felt was probably ten times such the push to go to winner ball is because it's baseball on a on a little like i don't care you can show me your most diehard american baseball fan can i take a hard right turn on this for a second but sticking with the national ask you guys a question there has always been this kind of that with an an incredible postseason which has followed on the heels of a strong postseason resume entering this year his already strong when is when is there championship their championship coincide like it starts i believe i want to say it's like early spring like i think it goes like up until is it fair to say the strasbourg actually has fucking at the hype and it's fully delivered i know exactly where you're going jay and you're thinking about some of the injury if not otherworldly re regular season resume and the fact that like to put it into context among all pitchers in baseball history with forty innings pitched in the post championship in the history of this city like that's going to be a weird thing like hold on based on what you like then there will be generations of cubs fans like okay and then take a week off and then her in spring training and raking in throwing a thousand because they've just gone to the flooding caribbean world series season his ERA is only behind mariano and sandy fucking colfax okay yeah in the live ball era basically since like earned runs and baseball counted agency later it's just whether you call that luck or clutch or timely whatever like that's that's execution for the nationals clean baseball james her whereabouts type shit that is it is a religion folks it really is i promise you can we go fuck yak rob god debt i go tomorrow seized probably set him back in his inability to stay healthy there's a black cloud that starts to follow guys around and strasbourg was definitely i think in that camp like all man it's unfortunate he's never gonna be fully healthy we're never going to see what we expected well for the second time in his career he's posted but like this would be a guy who in most of his attempts at world series pitching has failed and it happened again last night like he wasn't sharp last night postseason pitcher he's a big game guy he gets the job done and i'm not saying that justin verlander lacks any of that but like this shit's very complicated the expectations but how much of a factor do you think that stephen strasburg sharing a rotation with max scherzer over the last five years has strasbourg continue this narrative j. that i think you are accurately sort of putting out there but yeah strasbourg is the real deal and all westberg do is he's really starting to in my opinion take the ability to command the baseball to the next level and i think that that is something that that can help you players that are like that and it's like no strasberg's not going to be the greatest of all time but i think we're at a point now where it's like it's undeniable where he sits like whose career is completely unblemished as it relates to his resume maybe greg maddux you know what i mean like right there are so few i totally get that i think it's time that the public perception the non starting nine non like inside baseball perspective catches up with the fact that like listen nobody needed i feel like we'd all gotten to the point everybody us every baseball every person who follows baseball where we said that justin verlander is shutdown is considered he has met everything that we expected come the day he was draft i think that i think that like when you lay it all out like that that he's pitch ability because he's had this stuff and i don't want to say as the stuff diminishes because it might not be what it was when he first showed up but what you're watching stephen then he he now is winless in the world series with an ER a over five we crush clayton kershaw we the general public crush clayton kershaw because he's failed to deliver how differently do we look back on justin verlander is career right now of 2017 does not happen i know that's true world series i and justin verlander again that's why it's complicated don drysdale leads the list right we all know that name i just think it's interesting that like the point is very valid how can you be the most hyped pitcher in x. number of years and then not even end up being the best pitcher on your team and then meet expectations how do those two things jibe is hurt the public perception i think when you lay it all out when you explain to someone hey he's done x y and z and he's doing he's doing this in the postseason right now but gap like i feel like the public perception doesn't favor him in the way that he should be but that's like it's time that that public perception very few players careers are perfect and grey areas allowed him to sort of settle into that j. like with iraq war once you think you've figured out the narratives for these pitchers and how these careers are should be defined baseball's got a little something else for you you say yeah stephen strasburg yes or no is he lived up to the hype i think that when when we talk about stephen strasburg one of the first things that comes to mind is oh yeah isn't he that guy that the they shut down in the playoffs back in two thousand twelve and and this and that isn't that that guy that you know he got hurt and he's in the same rotation match max scherzer he's got three cy young awards is with justin berliner and yes it's disappointing but i still fall back on gary cole's performance being even more disappointing just because he wasn't was does he have like what the third worst world series area of all time stale some guy named mike erksine seems to run out of bullets in the world series dallas thomas i have an idea not was calling garrett cole is calling them garrett kershaw on the stream yet tonight because he couldn't get it done the world series i think the the much larger sample that performance i mean he got touched up i mean there and hicks homer was like fucking three hundred something feet down a line off the foul pole and then he i don't know that i'm ready to call garett ver- lander or clayton burland or anything like that it just pounds your retinas and get you seeing double and triple at times movement they will take care of your eyeballs folks fucking guy he hadn't lost a game since may and of course that i lost comes in in a world series game to kick off the world series and game one does seem to save it for the world series because even even in that star was at aol CS game four i want to say just did not give in for the rest of the game it was a first inning blunder then that was it the DJ lemay you home or whatever for whatever reason aside from going to CBD MD what i typically do is all throw on my glasses from movement and they take away that glare they take away that shine that shit and give up the ball to the kid get touched up by the good point though it's a good point though jay but it it he all my time in front of a screen your headaches i get headaches pretty often i do as well so we

mtv folks mugabe's blue light glasses the course of course it's it's always good to have someone on the show that actually has some real hardware some real credentials in the big leagues be network analysts carlos pena the breads of plaque overall is a pretty good movie because i understood what the whole entire idea behind it was just telling story of money ball how old what time it is would you like to explain to me how you have an idea i have an idea when it comes to time i got i got a question for you though i'm time because get carlos on starting nine today so without further ado here's our little chit chat with the former all star so now of MLB network is covering the world series down in houston carlos paint how are you today sir great man thanks for having me had a guy that played him and he was just like this faceless character come on so i understand we're trying to tell the story i had a similar question not a similar question but it derived from the movie moneyball so in the movie moneyball they're just like hey calls pain is too good we got all right we're here carlos pain a former all star in the big leagues a big leaguers dallas you've never even did you ever go to an all star game you buy a ticket or something numbers and the formulas and seven metric movement right and how it affected that ballclub so i was like okay they told the story the battles on the diamond i didn't i'll be honest i didn't textured and ask him to look up two thousand eight your career year maybe access as i may have had i didn't ask him to do ate him get him out of here because we wanna play scott hattiesburg what were you what were your first reactions when you saw the movie moneyball in game one of the world series on tuesday night what was what was your pick oser world series pick before the series started and are you still eighteen but when i look at it and go with my heart i mean the better story would be the nationals but i don't want it to be mistaking that i'm just going this were you surprised were you surprised to see corbyn in the ball game kind of understanding how the approach has been let's get the can reemerge in a lot of people's minds reminding them how important that individual is but were you surprised to see corbin that early on taking bhai that after the nets taking game one now when i look at the at the teams on paper you know i sort of key however they kind of excluded these key players key players is an understatement i mean these guys were the backbone of the hal untie balkan as high power arms into the ballgame kind of as soon as possible you know sooner rather than later what we're seeing is the starting pitcher i think circle back to win but i still think that the astros on paper our superior team if you go player by player position by position game one did you feel that there was any sort of pressing to that decision making or did you understand dave martinez is coming from realizing what opportunity any of that that was not the so so again if that comes up that wasn't on me man ah this choice is a passion show choice and an impulse emotional impulse no the nats the nets do have all the tools necessary hey hey i'm telling you man he has some really rough up confrontations diamond let me tell you it was tough to hit they never mentioned that they had very cedo they had hudson that they had older in their from like then in mentioned too hot his name they just i i'm not even going to touch that i'm not gonna talk about the the first question that i have for you because barry zito in here i don't know two or three weeks ago wasn't i didn't even i didn't even have to bring it i wasn't even go that route we we have limited time with you i wasn't going to bring up going home for three now where we look at dia picture remember i told you that paper the astros are a better t men capitalize on this w now the worst scenario they go back home one one then it gives them the opportunity as well to have that very pivotal game like so he's like man i'm going to solidify today's when i don't care what i gotta do it look if corbin becomes this fire man right at this point i wouldn't if the nationals win the world series the MVP will be blank if the astros win the world series the MVP will be blank oh my god he's ridiculous i mean like so so i'm sure like you're you're watching every pitcher these games the ball that springer hit and everyone was getting you know from their perspective but in reality was not exact you know i for example did not get sent down from big leagues i was actually in the minor leagues already i i he was in front of him game one right there in houston worst case scenario you're out of their one one CPI yeah dallas that's exactly you know when i saw him orderly different so i think they martinez understands leverage of having your your crowd behind you you're stadium you know the the entity behind i have a problem with it you know the bullpen has been a lot better as of late you know during the postseason late in the season and you know collis pinions actually invited there because of his performance on the field that i was credential credential that's fair that's fair that's fair carlos pain yeah a great dude but come on you know it's the sum of all part so i think the stats were magnified you know all the formulas and the sabermetrics where magnified line because he just played one hundred sixty two games or one hundred sixty two game season where he's using a juice baseball and he's he knows what it feels like off the bat i just put it out i wouldn't have a problem with that at all yeah i i think the answer is pretty clear i i'm going to have you fill in the blank here i think the answer is pretty clear for one of them but i love you know and and certainly their staff and to how it was going up every single night we'll speak in a key players one soto a triple shy of the cycle when you're down two games in the world series and you're gonna be playing on on another one's on away right on washington all of a sudden thinks looked carry that team to like a twenty game winning streak in it was actually because they had a really good pitching staff and the MVP of the league that year three of the numbers and the formulas they missed out on very big key elements as to why they had so much success that season right now so what do you mean scott how to break did i mean that is ridiculous i mean i believe it if you stand in home plate and you look up there and you are left handed hitter like myself i'm like man that's a polk i mean that's i needed easy i don't think that you're showing up the pitcher whatever these guys know but once soto with a baseball that's not juiced whatsoever put someone on the train tracks he knows when he gets one and with the with the ball that they were using during the regular season he knows that's a homer so i'm not gonna fault a guy that you know thinks that he gets one off the bat i don't think it's that's a special player so i'm already auto all from the left side of the plate dared left hand there's there's just there's the amount of people who hit that ball from the right side of the plate dynamite the conductor still wakes up and cold sweats watching our pools and flashes of that i saw the martinez go to corbin this is what i thought i'm like okay he understands the winning game one is absolutely huge and said if they're able to this elderly couple in the stands and there is this elderly woman that was actually asleep at one point and the the camera cut away right who do you think if the astros won the world series MVP man a little bit more difficult because i think i see that springer's been swinging the bat on him for skipping down the line and and whatever that it was a double that could have been a triple i know he talked about maybe not passing the runner and and that's why he didn't go to third base but he's skipping down the law so i'm gonna go with springer because the same thing could happen remember when springer was struggling twenty seventeen throughout the postseason for shoes doing one of those things where like you not often your head falls on your shoulder and then you catch yourself she was just about to do that before they cut the camera but for for the astros game one would i didn't want to see or what i thought could be hugely impactful and this could really go either way for the nets or for the astros driver to get the ball out there and soto just shot i mean that thing was sold loud and the silent the crowd let me tell you this place was absolute at the home run you could hear a pin drop because i mean they're probably like oh my god holy shit look at that ball there's actually i forget what it was they showed was to have one of those big three layin egg early on garrett cole didn't necessarily an egg because i was telling jerry he got twenty one outs if i had to pick a team to win this world series it would be the astros and now if i went with my heart so my branding somebody the astros the astros are disappeared elite erupting last night yeah it was so loud and we you could barely have a conversation with the person next yet to scream at the person next to you when a look back in time but i think that's the first time ever i left handed hitter has gone up on the train really really and i make oracle on the mound i think we all agree that the bullpens were probably an area of attention that was going to be paid just because that could have been the weak link frankly in the world series game right so it's not like he left the bullpen out high and dry but as we talked about they did drop that game one the all important game one all status has to take the ball would that be so bad if he takes the ball game three and then call corbin becomes this floater firemen whenever he's called upon he comes out as of right now based on performance based on the usage because remember the nats or a club that i mean they didn't bid in need they didn't need the bullpen frankly at all really announced minor league discrepancies that i think it took creative liberties and i understood that that was that was the deal but the problem is that for both of these clubs how do you see the bullpens shaping up for the remainder of this series and who do you think has the edge during the regular season but they struggled and they've really starting to pick it up as of late as you pay as you as you noted when i look at the posting the world series and he just went nazi up i don't know man yesterday i saw some swing that i was like okay this kid is on he's back on he's feeling good so through my way very well and true as well has just been crushed but he's so hot that i'm like can he keep this up all the way through the world series as well right right now moving forward looking at their bullpen you know he gave the astros he gave AJ hinch alvarez may you know obviously those two guys that were going to have to perform because those are young guys who have come up and made an impact on their clubs it's not like they've just been yes sir run that was a big deal so he's he's still down there he's still down there looming as well what are you seeing i guess we highlighted one soto and you're my concerns when i saw hall right there and and the championship series i was like oh man and they lose him now have you know soda in in a very hostile environment so we have to give credit to the nats and not necessarily look at a faulty colt that you can hunt whoever it is that's on the mound the you can wait all you want throughout the year right you say to yourself what that's six hundred plate appearances coming better than the nationals and depends what brad peacock is capable of we remember what brad peacock did i mean that guy was that guy was an absolute horse out of the bullpen for the astros during seen from soto and what you've seen from alvarez does alvarez have enough time right now to turn it around and be an impact or to soto sort of steel the nationals beat them you got defeated yesterday and that's that's gotta we gotta give credit where credit's due so i agree with you dallas right there he came out you know spotlight as far as who were watching regarding the young guns yeah that's a great question right there and i'm glad you asked because we can go immediate the nationals haven't truly yet proven to me yeah so kind of have you know what i mean it's not like they're spectacular but there there there concern but since he's healthy i yes you're still happy edge over the nationals i just don't think in the bullpen the the rather the left hand side brought that it's insane let me tell you something i mean i heard yesterday i'm i'm not sure if that's true i'm gonna have to just go ahead and what's more like okay maybe he was not at his best but i mean you're still facing a start up here and still give all eight performances yesterday's performance like you mentioned i wouldn't call it like you say dallas i wouldn't call it they call the left you know late at night or had a bad outing missile and have helped these teams along they are a huge reason as to why these teams are in the position they're in in a condensed series right now what you'd throwing bullets right there in the first inning look pretty good the he had to leave but the nationals were able to maintain poice you know homerun summer man than he comes big blast into the nitty gritty man look you will not have success you're waiting for these thud pitchers to come to you on because i understood look facing you like it understand and feel sort of that that patient aggression knowing that you're not waiting for me to lay i'm just gonna just look for fastballs middle way and can i just add everything else you know and at the end of the day my numbers will be there you cannot do that the mouth of the prince of plastic himself do not want to do that makes me uncomfortable because that's exactly what i think that's what i want to see and that's why in there you're hunting the mistake you've got a game plan and with his power potential with his tools that's what i wanna see that's why i asked that because i can what if the n- that win that will give the horn so yes correct right a hundred percent get this need trying to just react see the ball and hit it no no no i need a plan and i'm going to go up there and i'm gonna start hunting fastball at the top of the strike zone i fast ball soto ios it and it frankly makes me uncomfortable dammit to hear you talk about hunting the front but logging was talking about how he had guaranteed he guaranteed that soto was going to take garrett cole deep on an a campaign north two hundred innings the health seems good he seems to really be making strides in terms of just his since the complacency and with these arms out there that they're going to be running at him you do not you cannot afford to sit there and go oh one because oh one attorney to hey it's okay yeah we lost finished fresh dill we need overuse anybody and let me tell you presley being that healthy 'cause i was one in the postseason is too quick too short now that matters so having said that look obvious could come tonight and say you know what for it's gonna wait onto the pitcher comes to me really you're gonna wayne to the pitcher comes to you when you only have six games go how about you formulate a plan i will go with spring that's a again like chan again i was telling i was telling jeered yesterday before game one might have been the day before i don't wanna low nice and early so i do not do not feel rushed to it you know i'm gonna raise my sights because if i lower my sites that change he's gonna be in between a little bit you can't did you did you did you catch wind i think it was rosenthal or it might have been produced who i forget who it was who led it out of the bag ashington about about hitting in about you know strategizing and having a good plan but they're looking at jordan alvarez incredible speed incredible skill yes one hundred look exactly like the fastball one i'm gonna change it in a third see what i'm saying he's formulating a plan based on what he sees and now you eliminate that chain down in i just won't be oh two and you might as well be halfway back to the dugout absolutely and that's why i'm glad you you touch that because that's like right up my alley he's conversation i get it transcript so they won game one but now imagine if they went tonight you know that place that being said they're going to be two games ahead wait you raised a fastball top of his own you load early enough to put a charge on it that's when he's soda does it now you're not it seems to be percent but what does it matter if you don't give yourself a plan and set some sort of parameters so that you still can express its dealt with did those parameters man you can't go up there and just say i'm just a couple of the whole entire strike zone that's exactly what you want dallas if you're a pitcher had a stack guy and you have a manager former catcher but like manager brain right now for you like when they were going over these signs stealing setting up pitchers looking really bad on a pitch or a swing early on in the game counting on him facing that guy one more time crucial i don't know if this is it this is an approach that a hitter might take or not i talked to manny ramirez about this when we were in the clubhouse together in spring training and i would talk to him about i was watching network the other night and i'm interested to get your take on this because it was it was brian kenny it was joe girardi and oh man i don't want to sacrifice anything because you know they don't know how to trade you know there's a trade off you know what i'm gonna give him the low in a way fastball i'm gonna -tuation sort of buying himself that same pitch early on in the game is there any is there any thought to georgiana alvarez keeping simple what do you mean keep things simple your complicated things by trying to cover everything the offbeat and the fastball so i have to wait back on the offbeat and guess what type demonstrations that they were talking about joe was kind of saying that like you know science dealing is perfectly legal but he doesn't like when it comes from the players it was al lighter and i know that signed stealing has been like a big deal this postseason lot of talk around that but you got a pitcher wichita twice hit two platters and send my team you know a winner and i think that's young hitters of a problem with is is it aren't in between the white lines for you being like a first baseman like if you're in the dugout like what what what type of practices are you do you are right on this this is so important to to speak about because i think this the the the general thought is like oh you know as a lefty from strasbourg so i just need you to see entity right here okay is there anything to that because it's not like you want to go up there hunting a guys best bitch right is being able to execute that sort of approach like look man if you just want to go up there and you're going to have to you're going to have to sit on this change of why because you're probably gonna get one date home runs on the board right karma doubts frostburg get it down pops and then i'm going to be all over one hundred percent in time gave my best swing what happens when you do that first and second you hit a three run homer i don't care throughout the game now it's you prefer to go to for four with two home runs and three i think they'll open four four week round got to i got to be quick enough to get to a fastball ninety nine yeah thank you will never be able to do that that is not feasible it's not possible you know and you can just look at has to come from the people that are inside the white lines i is in like no first base coach no third base coach nobody from the dugout being to relay things through whistling one and the guy throws a fastball like okay third time maybe it's a sign up to three you know out plus one you know you start doing for example i don't know and get some signs and then it's it's bush league now if you're a second base and you start counting you go to three with are you are in approval of like if you're trying to help out your team give them the best chance to win like do you agree with if there's going to be signed stealing in the game in between the lines it's all good now coming from the dugout or who knows what else could be happening that's that should be legal seriously race my sites and sit on the change you know and they let the bills too fast blown away maybe have a fighting chance but i don't really wanna swing i wanna i wanna wait for that change in a flash lights and stuff like that i don't even know how much there's if there's any truth to that it would be absolutely pathetic if team actually did that honestly you know with a with a someone does it or not i'm not for that there needs to be a line drawn look between the lines relaying signs you know in the heat of the moment the indian clever whatever it is or just whatever advantage you can get you have to you have to take it you know i i cannot agree with that you know when you are between the lines and everything goes what about what about the involvement of what about the involvement of technology in the dugout knowing that that can sort of leave the door at the end of the day we're trying to play baseball here you know and it's like i mean we bring all this technology into the game look i understand you know you got your scouting report tonight but it's kind of bush league to be like in the dugout right and going hey it's a fastball and if you go hey yo feet are open to some you know some wishy washy or some questionable behavior because we've seen certain organizations kind of do stuff like that before whether it's where do we draw that line CPA and is it something that needs to be paid attention to as we move further into this to this field man we gotta we gotta come to the really absolutely horrible where am i getting my cue from anyway like tipping pitches if he's tipping pitches let the batter you know figure out what it is you know come into the gun and say hey man when he's still this is something that i i like they've got ipads running in the dugout of each pitcher of each pitchers pitch with you know what i mean i'm all for it where do we draw can show you the numbers you know but when you have a plan and you sit trees perhaps against respite because you will get a couple of the strike zone to give an advantage like that that's just flat out wrong it's not even ethical honestly where's where's your competitive heart go you know like on the good his glove you know to get a better grip on his lighter slider when he keeps it straight up it's a fastball keep that's okay and but to to go inside i'm good with that base the catcher's not hiding his signs well with with his legs and and i can put my hands on my knees when i see that it's a fastball and speed questions you know all of a sudden you know that it's going to be fast and you load for that speed almost with reckless abandon and with this freedom and that's why you see guys just crushing balls when they're able to pick up on that right the same thing with off speed pitch you can just kinda hang sit back i mean i could count possibly on my hand the times that we actually caught and i play for fourteen seasons you know that we caught a pitcher out and crush you know which is actually without any type of worry on being late is totally selling out at one pitch and guys when you are on time you're the right handed hitter is able to from the corner of his i see that in my hands are off my knees and it's an offbeat i'm good with hands on fastball we used to do it all the time are you know a a a a at gained speed awesome now trying to utilize the latest technology in the most you know the the the latest advancements had decky matsui did when he came over to oakland was he introduced himself and his translator the first day like it was pretty funny because i think about timing you know about being in between pitches anyway if you have a good plan but what dipping when realizing what the tipping does is you eliminate on like you're looking at a fast ball he comes back that's the that's the off speed what was what was your strategy did you pay attention any that yeah you know find something you were distracted from doing your job you know so it had to be so obvious i gotta tell you the first thing that the math and then he goes you know one two three slider again like maybe sign that say they're sign okay and you believe we lay it to the batter some of these managerial discussions was there anybody that you played with you can remember that was really good at the art of picking so but it would be not playing baseball playing baseball you trying to cheat somewhere somehow it's like who's got the most advanced technology but again we're speculate for that like we were you someone that was looking for pitchers tipping or or or you're just a guy that was like if someone approached you and said hey you know if he if he comes down middle up and i'm going to pull it off if i'm not ready for it well when dallas does that now be ready because that's my plan a fan of that instead moe's tipping and i cannot even remember any of the guys that you know that's how how rare those instances where if you were trying to strain to don't like it like i'd rather do what i was telling you earlier guys just sit pitches and sit speeds and locations not based on what back and forth especially as a pitcher because that's something i look for a lot now how did the opportunity to work with eduardo perez whose name is also circulating i'm talking about this he was one of the best or one of the best in the game at-bat and you know i would say carlos beltran was one of those you know whether it's an adult whether it's an apple watch i can't remember the club off topic was the boston red sox now but if i mean because the astros have you know trying to figure out if dallas has one centimeter you know kill on his glove former teammates that are now finding their way into managerial roles in assistant roles air kinski comes to mind rockall deli comes to mind is that i think that is on your mind are you because you do a fantastic job at MLB network when we saw you all star game i made sure to let you know man that was tipping that was obvious enough that would be an event you know what i mean like we're like okay it comes a fastball it's great advantage dykes you don't think about timing anymore you load we should is incredible but then dallas did you have one more question well yeah that's kinda i wanted to ask you this before we let you go i know you i know you've got things to do integrity yeah i shot a a lot of guys playing golf shirt eighty five did you really sure awesome way and maybe get an out somewhere down the line but it's just into top you guys about this so you do a phenomenal job there are your company because you don't have to you know he shook my hand said hello i was like yeah i know who you are hello mr matsui dallas really humbled don't have to embrace that grind all over again but i think we all understand this isn't a grind to you this is a this is a passion this is a love for yom so is that something that shape and his translator roger just looked right at me and goes you tip your change and i was like i mean i i thoroughly enjoy when i'm flipping through the channels i will sit there because i love to talk kidding just as much as i love to talk pitching because for some reason i still think he'll be able to apply this summer guys that was just awesome attic in guys are able to say no i got it i got it you know i i i i can rely on that you know and some of the guys hud jackie last year would have been special meal i would have been nice so i i appreciate that sort of exchange that that with some of the names that have been circulating as far as managerial vacancies and really just occupancies just job opportunities in the game of baseball you've got you've got to come q. three foot jimmy come on let's see did you have an speedy roller coaster where you cannot even take breath you're in the heat of the battle now you're able to look at it from different perspectives and of course applied tips because it wardell perez and he'll tell you he made a living off of it i can't believe you just mentioned a driver per because that's the that's the person that i've been your knowledge from your experience but now you're also studying in you also a learning even more and more than you probably would learn as a pitcher that's fine it's just like printed on paper it's just that now is in an ipad no problem you know but you know stuff about the conspiracy theories of putting cameras on the outfield should talk about pitching a hitter right that i've experienced what really works against me and what's difficult for me and i've i've always said this to pitchers pitchers are sort of like inmates in a prison system because we have to be here from have experienced that as soon as you step off the mound and off the field all of a sudden you are seeing from outside the frame and you're like wait a second i could've been go through your rituals continue to get as comfortable as you need to be an i have the opportunity to sit and watch you an inmate it's not really them i thought about managing you know like you said the grind is something that maybe i wouldn't look forward to because i'm really enjoying what i do right now but you hit that is timing is everything hitting so but i can count maybe on my hand in fourteen seasons at times where you know what was your breaking down your approach while you're breaking down where you need to be mechanically your protocol your check points as far as your swing is concerned i you know and you see how the clarity that comes with being removed emotional emotionally from the game right you as a pitcher i'm pretty sure readying yourself now i get to watch your hand position i get to watch whether or not you're moving up or back or closer or further away from the plate in the count in certain leverage counts the liquid analytics the application of science in real time actually you could actually apply you know as a player so in a sense yes guys wing on deck because what you're doing on deck could probably give me a little bit of insight to what you're probably going to try to do maybe at the dish or at least this is how i'm doing i have the opportunity to watch guys do that just like you have the opportunity maybe on a day that you're not playing or whatever but you're going through video so that's why this point of time you know where to find us but we are sort of forced to sit here and just watch you the security guards continue to come up to the plate and continued getting the opportunity they're forced to watch those dudes go about their business but the idea is i get to sit and watch your bat wire i get to watch what you're doing open official for pitchers to do talk to hitters esau twitter's you know if you just pretty much lock yourself up to a i have no time i'm done i'm toast all really i'm a pitcher right okay why am i so worried about you know all these other things that are is better i could have done that better and it just this clarity comes over you because you are removed from it emotionally you no longer like what makes them tick what feels comfortable what doesn't feel comfortable why you know what is the worst feeling at the plate the plate is having no time when i feel listen to my my pitching coach you know there's a pitcher teaching pitcher then teacher you're patriots teaching pitchers talk to hitters learn with the man i'm with you before we let you go we gotta ask you we ask each one of our guests this question if you could jump in a hot tub time machine and go back out anymore but the art and the science behind it is continually evolving he's working with kids in the aa system with the oakland a.'s so why not continue to try to there's that and of course they still are you know they're still in the game in in in another capacity right and they're still doing no the wealth of knowledge maybe that's something you you know goes i of course for you because you mentioned this is one thing that kind of bothers me at times you know with the two one have you screwed it up to take away my change up one to have you scooted back because you know that i'm gonna flip that thing up there but you're just not going to get beat in what are you veena player the same is true for me so i'm constantly studying i'm constantly trying to trying to see what is what is the next one to you and i'm looking at those things liked to hit just base in knowing what doubts brain likes to throw you know what i mean and i know that he will do this you know he's gonna slow me down then he's gonna try to throw a four seamer say i love to talk i spend time with bobby crosby in the offseason we do fantasy camp for the ace and i talked to him a lot about hitting still just because like i said it's funny i can't go out and get an is that right is that finger stick it up or heated he just forgets to clip his fingernails what's going on but does beltran were like matt in time to eddie moment in baseball history and witness what would it be and how you know i i will go back and watch harry homerun the competitive you know bang it definitely calls i think it's gonna call me all the way until until the grave i don't think i'll ever DNA sorry so if i make you feel like you have no time but you are undecided inbetween oh okay that makes sense now you become a better pitcher this pitching wise donna's brain talking isn't that the silliest question in the world you know why you know why because co else his coverage of the world series on MLB network it's fantastic all the segments are fantastic thank you so much for coming on always a pleasure course all right we got to cut this off because we have to i don't want to but we could talk about this all day so we're looking forward to a part two of this interview interested in the future potentially most definitely thought about it it's just simply because you know that it's an honor in our needs to compete starting nine here today that was great as always forever as far as what is the next advantage you know because if everyone is in the same boat same metrics what is now the same what is the advantage and i'm looking at once a week at least it seemed like it was just so consistent throughout his career then finally he breaks the record also him being you know on minority you know the one that broke the record at fifteen fifty five fifteen an an yes look guy this is the thing that consistency how how important that moment was guys that is that it's ethic right there you know to meet that moment right there it's gonna stand you know kinda like frozen in time you know people come on the field goal and create what did he feel in that moment you know i would travel pack the bat particular you know night when he wrote for me add another wrinkle to this brain and learn something that's going on in our game that's that's my number one thing let me this is is a lot about is hey find your way into a hitters meeting find your way behind the cage and talk to a hitting coach for twenty minutes and just you just never know what you're going to get out of that man so it's just really this team that is a possibility that the realm of possibility so we do have this let me look at the schedule here on sorry wasn't expecting the question i had i had the series over in seven but it's probably not gonna take that long like are the upcoming one or the one before this then the next podcast very dangerous during the same shit and it was just really refreshing to hear from a guy who's obviously made a living doing it and it's something that i talked to it makes him tick now i just became a better hitter so i got i love this stuff back i talked about i can tell you so game five is sunday yes yes so monday correct yes so the next podcast is dropping on monday talking full-time breakdowns like you would have him we could probably get him on the mound doing a pitching breakdown of shit he's looking for me with a bad my hand which is always to hear that same sentiment echoed from another guy our podcast dropped on monday same thing for a pitcher for a hit right i wanna know what makes pitchers tick why why is this guy good oh that's why he's good a and there is a real chance that we will be talking about a world series champion washington nationals this could be it could be this could be our last podcast but we're talking about active major league baseball season this fans listening i'll be in dc with nate on saturday so we'll probably hit the bullpen i'm kind of like this is my third time going in right sure as the ultimate you know for me a guy that just loves black does period right at that

"Thank you for listening to this podcast one sports net reduction available on Apple podcast and podcast one okay this is just a thirty Second Commercial Sean I'm going to throw a lot of numbers at you but please please stay with me in just fifteen minutes you could save fifteen percent or more on car insurance the company that has been offering great rates and great everybody because you get blown out and that of course was not the case then I remember the seventy sixers played the Boston Celtics it's not as much as you want to say well they beat him in Houston now you go to Washington these blowout wins member when the Red Sox lost to the Yankees good morning to our radio and TV partners nationals beat the Astros roughed him up last night twelve three and now they've captured the first two games in Houston they go home broadcasting from the Mercedes man this is Dan Patrick Welcome to the program it's hour one on this Thursday Dan and the Danettes Dan tweets I just got a tweet by the way and this was from Ron Jiang who sends a tweet he said is just me or just fritzy look like the guy from the Board Game Operation Hey what does Alabama and I started to think about it and I went yeah in appearance as you say no way but Washington has a very it's interesting to look at Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg and say they're actually underrated because of how Great Patrick Show were down to Danette Seton is off today jury duty Fritzy's here mclovin and of course Paulie and yours truly phone calls are welcome emails hitters Kurt Suzuki hit a home run on Burland or last night broke open a close game you know it's got to hurt a little bit of bryce Harper watching in this with the nationals but it seems like teams can't blood in their way to a world series title instead the nationals are hoping to prove great pitching timely hitting some SMART -aseball we'll take them all the way to winning a world series and you've already got the guys in the media it's the it's over guys it's not over it might've been the Boston massacre with they they beat Philadelphia by like forty points or something like that and then ended up losing the started the nationals are going to get a split with Garrett Cole and Justin Verlinden you'd say okay maybe but if I said they're gonNA take both of those games from the answer sort procedures both both if you've ever played that game of operation where you have the tweezers there I don't have a big red nosed reindeer that's a whole and all we're still commanding lead and once again we're reminded of how hard it is to predict success in baseball certainly in the postseason because you would have thought if I said when the world series I'll get passing I think the guy in operation has a little more hair than you do and smaller arms but the medical procedures yeah I could see that you look a little convert lander have been we spend all off season obsessing about where guys like Bryce Harper and Manny Machado are GonNa go then October pitching takes over you got random go to GEICO DOT com today Sir all the numbers but I've been a fan and a customer guy go for a long time and in five four three two one I'm out here's head coach and Chris Webber on loan from the NBA on TNT eight seven seven three DP show email address DP Dan Patrick dot com twitter handle with DP show said series we Philadelphia Seventy sixers against the Portland Trailblazers in the NBA finals you know they were blowing out the blazers and everybody's at all gosh you know they're going to they took the back in two thousand three was fifteen to two so the euro four else yes and I was fifteen to two and everybody there said Altuve a bit like the guy from operation push all right welcome to the program we'll have a poll question play the day stat of the day we'll talk to Lincoln Riley who is the Oklahoma sooners win we may not have expected you to win hey you don't have to worry about it we don't think you're going to win over but now we do so now there is pressure that changed somebody's opinion just pressure change you know because we gave the nationals all this credit that hey nobody expects you to win the nationals expected we're on them is there less pressure on the astor's now the nationals would be a failure they lost the world series world series they were not favored to win yes okay yes there's two games Portland came back and swept the next four sometimes it's just strange things that'll happen what if Houston takes game three but if they take the ten as harper it's probably GonNa hurt just a little bit I know that he says he's rooting for them and he doesn't WanNa waste at energy of rooting against them because it doesn't matter it's it doesn't matter if he's rooting for them or against them the way this series GonNa play out it's it will play out no matter who he's rooting for rooting against recent the dodgers Don Drysdale said he colfax that was nineteen sixty five you know they they pick their spots and then they blew it offs in a loss dog redskins vikings coming up tonight Looks like Josh Gordon is which is pretty amazing and getting those last two over co CY young favorites in Col- inver lender yeah Paulie remember that question you asked week is Bryce Harper rooting for the nationals. I I'm going to say it's over but like you said I cannot believe they lost the first two at home with Colin Berlin all right if I said you can add the nationals or the Astros who do you got is a good price when you're ready to buy a new or used car visit truecar and enjoy more confident car buying experience watch some NBA last night Kyri dropped fifty on the timber you did wonder that morning that Monday morning it's like I wonder if Josh Gordon if there's something more to this and it feels like there's something more to this that the Patriots would let him go done with Patriots now it appears to be he appears to be healthy you're but he's on the I. R. and it feels like once he's and it's just you know you got now you have another guy now you have another option and you have a guy who is experienced and probably far more professional than Josh cattleman like you know the ball's going to Ataman almost every play Adam is taking show many monster hit their a possession receiver type team it feels like that's what they become this program brought to you by Truecar car shopping can be confusing terms like dealer price list price invoice truecar shows you what other people paid for the car you want so you can recommend lake you. We didn't think you were going to win so now all this pressure's on you you better win now doesn't work that well I see how you doing with your astros on a little wheatley healthy than the Patriots are going to release him and that's why they went out and got Mohammed sue maybe they go after if they have Gordon but I think once that happened he won the first two games you be calling you beat Vir- lander new came back and you lost that that's how the you know hey we want you to make up for cad lines of his Astros losing to the nationals let's not build up the suspense so the drama led police Marathi is completely emboldened after yesterday's super he's GonNa find a way to get back on track even though it will be on the road the next lander and cold the first dual twenty game winners to lose games one and two of the world series when they lose because I don't think he's hoping for a sweep you know if he's rooting for them he may not be hoping personally because sweep it's like look what they did once they got rid of him yes mclovin still a little confused news a possession receiver you know so where they have a lot of possession receivers don't they still need that cut the the Oh hands but you'd be wide receiver tough handshake guy to use up on the glue sue fritzy has beaten would always greet us in the newsroom by going hill an Overman took that onto sports center and whenever somebody would all right all right Eaton's homer in eighth put it out of reach now you have to explain this my former boss Gordon is I heard him described as having Glue Han that's a pretty good thing that'll help you know I had a legal did they outline I don't know if that's legal or not and that's what extremes fourth media people are going to say but if people are going to say it and he's got to hear it yeah I don't know if it matters if they win in seven or winning four of your Lalla Capitol Hill capital pill serviceable and they're going to DC Guy Apple Hills there bushnell you're batting about we only have four levels aided mock headlines which sports market lines not good food related MAC headlines Fritzy hit out of the park yesterday you had people in the von Lentil Nice job that is don't I went with Houston is Houston Ren done and I love an hour no you force in other capital pill to deficit heading to DC toughest the muffin off guy what what do you call that guy vertical threat it's deep threat got a deep threat they got some new because they're becoming too predictable into differ NAM it's not good they beg to differ Bregman Psycho is Houston Ren done Anthony Astros dropped I two at minute maid okay all right the the juice box it well that's not what we expected okay let's see pressure to the Redskins who played tonight that here's the nationals up two games to none in the world series the capitals of already won the Stanley Cup and you have the ball every time what I rather be the third leading score on Golden State or the leading score on the nets right assuming the nets are about a five hundred team without chem you know he got left Boston he wants to show the world that he's still you know he he belongs in that conversation of great players and we sort of forget about Kyrie and then you putting up fifty or forty or probably thirty wants durant comes back I think he's doing what he probably thinks he needs to do and plus he's all pumped up to non mclovin what's poll question today okay if you are Kyrie Irving scored fifty points in a losing effort last night would you rather lead the NBA in scoring and a two twenty four that's not GonNa send me right back down to the minors yeah why below your Mendoza double a baseball not even Mendoza line does it add a little russell has left the building now known because nobody knows who is off of Nolan Ryan was sitting right there in the first nobody knows Presley has left the building element urged man because you got really good teams and really really bad teams in the same town and here the nationals up two games watch human you go he might have the best handle in the NBA and he can put up those kind of numbers which is impressive. I don't think he's going to have James Harden like season like I don't know and also rookie PJ Washington Kentucky all of a sudden is amazing how come Kentucky was in a better team last year he went seven for eleven from three open because you know ver- lender was a pitcher pitching duel there for a little while but the you know the nationals who won eight straight playoff games eighteen of twenty overall Houston's one two punch on mound exposed okay trail expo all right I'm GONNA say plus B. Minus what he got no I got you Undergrad or maybe slightly below I would rather be the third leading score on a a really good team what do you think I res Mentalities well he's not going to be and a five hundred team or be third leading score on the best team in your conference and we all know this question this actually is more relevant to you than anyone would you rather get the green light error ball go through his legs or go to five people know that one but I did like that okay boot town fans disappointed that's put skin my mind says that the national should find a way to win two of the next five games but my heart's GonNa stay with no no okay and see stay with US average average okay yeah minute maid shark nationals bite favorites again baby shard that in a minute maid park okay okay Washington big underdogs they. He's unstoppable Ben Simmons once he gets into the paint is unstoppable on the break unstoppable it's just when he's not on the break not true it's not true that is no one made any reference a you want your mock headlines for the Astros losing let's do it all right I'm going to leave it off with pulp fiction doing the mothership today and they're going the best quarterback how will Lamar Jackson be remembered what are we doing he's or in the paint he is very stoppable but he's you watch him in you go God if he had a jumper if he had a jump shot like a legit on a team you know is not GonNa Win Alba Games or be a role player more of a role player on a great team sure look like he was happy last night and his shot is you've got a beautiful shot Marquel Foltz had a highlight Dunk Ben Simmons still not taking making jumpers but he's point will he be the best player in the NBA is he like a Lebron type C I hate to fall victim to this and this is got to have glue hands we check on what if you're born with them though they can't make you get rid of them I don't think you can add glue yeah that'd probably be a tough delivery if you had Jack Levin there he's not GonNa put up those numbers he's a good player I watch a lot of your boy Luca last night he looks like he put on about ten pounds of Muscle don-shik for Dallas he's kind of tweaking did last year yes talk and if you can contribute to a team that has a decent chance of going to title and you don't have the pressure of being the number one and number two score where you can just do your thing and is that after the same number of games for rg three when he first hit the NFL how do you think he's going to be remembered he'll be remembered as one of the greats of all time college basketball dwayne Bacon yeah who is that guy who hit twenty to lead the Hornets about two twenty eight to twenty runners in scoring position right we know what the assets have been doing with a scoring position this Ryan not dominant for Astros what or industry has become that you gotta have a statement that is right now in these kids have played only a year or two years I mean I'm I was watching now you might get the person says I told you that such and such you know there's the guy but then there's also the guy who says hey I'm gonNA troll everybody with Aaron Rodgers he wouldn't be Lamar Jackson went to the right place for him a good twenty two he's a running quarterback how's he going to beat remembered I wouldn't even know how to answer that if you very quarterback Cam Newton if I asked you that after his rookie season eight probably going to be on the greats of old time you just we set ourselves up to sound stupid hopefully deep into the playoffs that would totally take that third yeah I'm watching some of the NBA last night a follow but there were times I was watching March madness that it felt like it was gene that got him at the end of the first round you had structure there the chiefs have structure their buffalo doesn't have structure yet Josh Allen Mitchell trubisky at a nice year last year and if I ask you at the end of last year what kind of quarterback to how's he going to be remembered career but how am I going to remember Lamar Jackson I don't know can you ask me in five years no he won't be but this we we fall victim to it and it's unfortunate but it's we gotta have this opinion now here we got to have something that is consumable it's really easy to digest this which quarterback is going to be nobody wants to let anything play out because if I ask you at the end of last year how do you think Baker Mayfield we'll be remembered you know probably going to be remembered as the joint ranger and I was watching and I go is that PJ Washington who probably wasn't supposed to be playing it he got injured I blame skip bayless for all of this I credit skip bayless I blame skip offense but it's where you go and I go back to what Brady said to me years ago if I went to another team and I went in the first round I might not be with people and their role they have porzingas he's the second guy second fiddle it could work for him more of a spot up guy don-shik is oh you mean porzingas this sorry go on a tangent there mclovin but I it's not fair to these kids because then you're going to say oh you didn't live up to what we thought we thought the right place at the right time because Patrick Mahomes was in buffalo he would not be the MVP he wouldn't be doing state farm commercials it destroys and because fritzy thought h town was Hugh towns the believe Hugh town and my last one which I thought was particularly clever bear with me as we wrap it up old man they got to steal six overall we're going we're already judging Dwayne Haskins he's only played a little bit Itimad jump shot he'd be one of the top five players in the game probably yes mclovin Ir huge game one NBA over actors with maybe one of the most explosive players ever played the game but we want to jump to these conclusions and I can't do that goes early and what's wrong with you man I don't know I Daniel Jones he goes sixth overall if he goes sixty sixth overall we right cuyler Murray it wasn't his decision to be the number one pick the media bought into it and now when he league because you get into these places where you're supposed to be a savior and you get into bad habits or you're just don't have a good team you lose your I don't know how good Sam Darnold is I know what people tell me I know the Baker Mayfield had one of the great rookie seasonable time you know I don't know I really don't know because there have been quarterbacks who figure it out and then defenses figure them out and a lot of this is the greatest quarterback out of this draft last year with Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold in more Jackson I don't know please have their manager maybe it's Joe Girardi all right we'll take a break it's twenty two after the hour phone calls you welcome back after this in the Dan Patrick show wow what a great time of year is it possible by God I just overseas like crazy a certain team has a coach manager so the match are but skip it was the first to to put something out there to troll people and then everybody followed suit I mean it's remarkable but skip because I don't know Michael Vick when he first came into how you how are you gonNA remember Michael Vick I don't know because at the time I would have said he I walked I go lowery market in for the bulls thirty five and seventeen is if he's going to average thirty five and seventeen this year h Naito oh my God

potentially make some money along the way from all of us here at podcast one thank you for being a dedicated listener Rod Joe Torry Jessica Mendoza Either Ron Darling Keith Hernandez Bobby Valentine name that I can think of right now is the Alex Rodriguez no I don't uh-huh he he's a hall of Famer seventy nine yeah if you're the mets you know you wanna start something fresher something Beltran and then there was a mention of a bombshell candidate for the mets job and the only oh Tori would be a bombshell but I just I can't imagine him coming back to do that I mean he's got a good they'll be okay so media guy in the mets now there was an article that came out I believe yesterday that said you know the mets were looking at Girardi Eduardo Perez Yeah it would be game changing culture changing if Jesse Jessica Mendoza who was don't Sunday night baseball but she's part of the mets organization Breaking Baseball News and mclovin you'll unveil this following in the foot up such giants as Dallas Green who's Danny Ozark Francona I think had a cup of coffee link with pep in my step little caesars go check it out again only nine dollars you like pepperoni lockstep crust this is where you're going little CAESARS PIZZA PIZZA OP is pop might do it where he's going to leave he's going to promote her before he leaves like she's the assistant head coach or whatever out what that means okay normally you bring in somebody who's the opposite of the manager you had before and is the opposite of Gabe Kappler I who's gotten a job Aaron Boone got a job Alex Cora got a job Girardi and David raw which righty the best pizza and the other three pizza chains large around standard menu one topping pepperoni pizza so that every day menu prices head on over to your local little caesars take advantage of this delicious deal I know a new I mean Jessica Mendoza would be a bombshell that would be a bomb so that would be you know mine and Michel Piazza no all infield like all of those stretches but if it's a bombshell her or would you hire Alex Rodriguez would Alex WanNa do that though Keystone Shark tank and Sunday night baseball although I was told that I guess so yeah he's old school yeah Gabe Kaplan was big analytic skylight of a player's got but Catholic get harper there for what it's worth so that's another espn nine bucks only at participating little caesars locations plus tax where applicable claiming extra cheese and most caproni automations best prices comparison the pizzas for the top national pizza chains little caesars Shen right she's at employee yeah he said by the way you're on record saying that you think it could happen in the NBA definitely Oh becky Hammon I think when turnaround their entire images of franchise and bringing a smart person hold my gosh deputy story that would be we're just talking bombshell candidate we're not talking coke head coach or something like it feels like that that would popovich would do and she's a worthy candidate Yarmulke Bobby Valentine I was in New York when he was steps down I I truly believe that she'll be the first female head coach in major sports history absolutely and I think that I think that might be interesting to me he seems to like working players yes he does and would probably be very good at working with young players I give you a about who they're going to hire right because there's a difference in that hey we're going to bring you in to interview okay but are you going to hire yeah I think he put his name out there but I don't know if he got an interview any traction with that I don't know how shilling would be you know politics aside being a manager it's it's one hundred sixty two games before after you're being interviewed spring training I mean that that's a long haul shelf habit a former ESPN baseball analyst coaching chilling I was interested in the phillies John a why did he put his name analogies there people give Terry Francona a lot of credit rightfully so he managed personalities with the Red Sox you know with the Yankees Tori ed how would schilling be as a baseball guy very bright with baseball but I don't I don't know how he would be with the media I mean there's so much more that goes into he managed personalities they're getting the right players for your style and granted during the game itself you got bench coach for an animal these days because of analytics and everything what do they do just pitching changes well I think that you had to deal with us get to the new phillies psyched but then the guys in the back Hula Baseball told me that that might not be the best hire that every all the players out a player's Guy I don't know who else would be a bombshell candidate here for the mets John True bombshell not over now we're overstates the word bombshell here's a couple of names have been mentioned he's not safe on Sunday night baseball because they may be doing a Redo Sunday night baseball at the mothership but I was told a rod is not safe in that job you know if that's the case in is you got pitching coaches I mean you've got people who can help you do things but when there's a loss they come to you now media every day wants to know what's going on Russa Larussa was feels like a long time ago I mean Aj hinch I don't know but we thought that Tony was a genius because he how this team has done things in the past he was I want someone outside the box new perspectives fresh decision making and you know she's been there a little over a year now if the mets Spanish David Ross the Espn Guy Girardi was Girardi was he was working was he working mlb he was somewhere in the maybe on a lot of games and you know do you want to do something like that yeah mclovin I've got in trouble for this before but I always say the managers don't do a lot I mean look at these injures. Aj hinch and Dave Martinez could walk into this room right now nfl like Anton College football coaches are such big presences where the manager is just it seems like left tackle Trent Williams from the Washington redskins well what team I'll say you're the let's who needs help offensively uh-huh I'm reading the Article The New York Times Brodie van wagon and the GM of the mets he said one of the reasons he brought in brought in Jessica does in is an advisor to the team because he wants a shakeup I guess he was a genius who grew in baseball that's the case now and Tony Laruso the reason why a baseball game goes four hours random acts like there's no way they bring it back remember ended so badly with them but you're not you can't bring in Bobby Sixty nine oh you can't bring in Bobby though aim is now predicated on how quickly do I get the ball out that's it. The older quarterback gets the ball out quicker than the younger the Seattle Seahawks who have been rumored in the they might be in the wide receiver market I would I would want Aj Green but they always need I tried this great talent into Shawn Watson but they didn't have a great line and then they went out and got Laremy Tunsil you have to protect him just like the colts the colts waited too long to what's wrong yes mkx Lincoln Riley who's coming on the show is genius you know because his team is doing well but you never say that it really about baseball manager Ohn you did under protect and I needed a left tackle than definitely but if you said to Russell Wilson he's going to take A. J. Green because Russell Wilson's quarterbacks because the younger quarterback hold onto it and try to make a play the veteran quarterback he'll go live to see another day here Baker Mayfield hold on bowl too long to Shawn Watson was holding onto the ball too long you WanNa make a play you WanNa make some magic where's brady goes hey two point three seconds it's out Russell Wilson same thing I gotta get this is what Baker Mayfield should be doing cuyler Murray should be doing Daniel Jones should be doing just get the ball if you'll allow me some sports radio trade speculation would you trade a first round pick or who would you rather traded first round pick for angles receiver Aj Green or protect your quarterback if I felt like Russell Wilson was endanger back there then I would go you got to trade for him it's like you know the the Texans they had allowed and try to protect Andrew luck the damage was done literally the damage was done and then all of a sudden you go we're going to go out and get Nelson and back and if Haskins is GonNa play and you can get way I just don't think Williams wants to play for that organization and I think that that's the interesting a disservice to their franchise because he has a lot of value for about six about a week and a half and then they can't get rid of them yeah they gotta eat it have all of these pitching changes like he was constantly maneuvering making changes in there and you're like genius here it actually perennial winners and if both of those teams don't trade those players they're doing a disservice to their fans AJ Greens an unrestricted free agent he can go anywhere next year again that everybody goes oh my gosh the colts are great got an offensive line Andrew. Luck's plan well the damage was done. If it was a young quarterback I'm trying all out I don't want you to try to make a play I don't need that I want you to get into a rhythm occasionally you can take a deep throw don't try to make the take this to the very end you I'm GonNa wait till the match burns my finger and that may happen but you know what if you can get a little bit more how move this over with Trent Williams because I want I gotta have a good offensive line I don't care what quarterback you have you got to have a good offensive line specially for these younger daily fantasy that's yahoo dot com slash daily fantasy when you make your first deposit use Promo Code Pod twenty-five That's two five for twenty five dollars in free play bad blood off the field so bad that the redskins you know maybe they're holding out and someone's going to give them a little bit more but if I'm Washington then I guess desperate is a team then I would probably do that I'd I'd won a little bit more for Trent Williams we'll take a break today is up next here Lincoln Riley will join us coming up James is so valuable he's just sitting out there three quarters of the teams in the NFL I would try from UPN saying team should go after him all season well I said that if you want play if you hold onto the ball for more than four seconds five seconds we're in trouble you're in trouble yeah Paulie I sing about these two franchises the bengals and the redskins not Michael agreeing to bring in a pitching chain bringing another pitching yes by way of another pole yeah to chase his hopper bed podcast button and there you will see all our wonderful sponsors that helped make this show possible thank you for downloading subscribing at of course supporting and now back to the show Jay Greener Trent Williams and now I would push back on the redskins if I feel like Dwayne Haskins is going to be ready next year and I can somehow earlier eight showed up yet what about Cleveland would you give up first round pick for trump williams I know they tried yes Washington no yes yeah irk little magic from the cars Kurt Suzuki his first career postseason home run breaks up a two two tie in the seventh Justin Berlanda wasn't able to get out is brought to you by dollar shave club products second-to-none see for yourself just five dollars the ultimate shave starter set basically everything you need for an amazing line lower and Chris Webber NBA on TNT will join us as well back after this I'd get near mid-seas exciting football action continues daily fantasy me is just burland the American League version of Clayton Kershaw both hall of famers unreal regular who is better than ever this year who daily fantasy recently released a new three hundred thousand dollar NFL baller contests with thirty thousand dollars first place ten dollars it's really not that they don't trade these two well if you know you're going to be bad the rest of the year and you could get something and you're going to be bad next year as well then do you try to get something for we certainly couldn't do without either of you and I wanted to remind you that you can support our sponsors by going to our show page podcast one dot com clicking on the support this season forgettable postseasons berliner hasn't been great in the world series but other postseasons I think he's been pretty good yes katie green light the the Greek freak always has the green light so who would you bet money on would lead the NBA and are you gotta check this out today Yahoo fantasy has new contest every week with guaranteed cash prizes even if you don't win the whole thing you could still walk away with a little money gets are now yahoo dot com slash who wins the NBA scoring title. I was wondering about this as a poll question so you would think James Harden right the bengals if they don't get something for him before he walks out the door this season's over over same with the Redskins if they don't dump Trent Williams for the best offer in the next week the inning as he was pulled Zack grinky will be on the mound as the Astros tried to avoid going down three Oh that is our play of the day play the goring hardened changes I don't know if he wants to he can change just because Westbrook is there there's one basketball Abe after that the restock ships regular size products at regular prices get yours at dollarshaveclub dot com slash Patrick and just had somebody tweets average thirty six last year but now you have Russell Westbrook in town steph curry doesn't have Kevin Durant or Klay Thompson this season Kyrie irving doesn't have which James Harden defers yeah Paulie Russ Westberg last year really curly tailed game he averaged twenty three points a game that's Pod twenty-five Promo for twenty five dollars in free play hey listeners just wanted to take a minute to thank all our great sponsors and all of you great listeners for supporting this podcast years ago he was averaging thirty two points a game Kyrie is going to get the green light put up fifty last night the sound here's the one oh a long drive cliff field he's got one now Kurt Suzuki gives the nationals to lead that would above the Crawford mad probably go curry harden can I guess Kyrie than the Greek freak I guess I don't know anybody and I wouldn't give up Trent Williams for a first round draft pick I did more while at this point even with all the bad blood that you just said he doesn't want to play for the team what if Fox's Kurt Suzuki's first career postseason whole broad and the nationals the astros three to to hear the seventh inning nationals radio network just to see what is that body language like on the floor because it was always like I always watch Chris Paul in Houston just to see his body language merge well we know booker loves to shoot Lillard is wonderful as well you got a lot of guys who can average somewhere between twenty six in thirty feels like curry I think you're going to need that outta curry this year harden Westbrook to me is going to be fascinating exactly right in eight American League division series he's eight and one so he gets you the next level in seven is he six and four in four world series what about one of your western conference gunslinger types like a Devon Booker Damian Lillard or one of those young Bradley beal types any of those guys set I'm GonNa go with steph curry he's my pick for MVP. I'll go with steph curry there and people should know how many times have we been burned in the sports media twenty eight to three super bowl it's over okay else you throw in there you know who's up there and I don't think people realize it's such a great score Joel Embiid here's his twenty eight yeah he lurked James Harden Chris Paul was like are you I mean seriously you're going to why are you shooting someone in Chris doesn't hide it and I just they have to chase a both dribble for forty minutes a game it's James Harden's team right but Russell still going to I know I just I I don't know how yeah yeah I you know everyone said he got in shape and I still not sure I see that like I got Akeem at its peak was the best athletes on the court in theory is down two games to it's not over what if what is the nationals lose this game they get blown out I am beach doesn't look like no he doesn't look in shape but that just might be how he's going to look he he never looks like he spent the off season working out aims to none right now in Houston wins this next game I do expect Alex Bregman had two errors last I mean they made a mess of it they did not watch hardin you'd go yep he's going to continue to put it up here so I don't think that I don't think that Chris Paul's missing that in Oklahoma City but I wonder with the leading score because I I was GonNa Pitch is the world series over but you start off the show by don't say no you can't say that strive Strasburg pitched well again that's sort of lost in the in the blow out here Strasbourg has been a money pitcher apple and can you think of anyone collide God of the day play on the day ver- Landers Oh and five star Yeah they're both the hall of Famer but haven't had great postseason success but ver- lander has won the world series on who was destined to be a star who fix their career faster last year two thousand Eighteen Strasburg was ten and seven Nice numbers not a lot of wins but the team wasn't that great make it worth your time we need you to complete a short

to the baseball together podcasts baseball family i am brad brig is out this week he is recovering covering from some medical stuffy taken care of we wish him a speedy recovery so this week i enjoined by very special guest my wife for some reason agreed to come on here so mel say hi to the people hello everybody baseball family all right so mel let's go through current events with me today and then i'll have another special guest for the second half of this of this episode let's just do it precursor that my baseball knowledge is far below even tiffany which she has way more knowledge than i do so bear with me and take my opinions with a grain of salt please fund fun it'll be a lot of fun so let's start with some current events first let's talk about the nationals and the mets last week this was an awesome game i actually turned this is on just in time to watch the last at bat i think you're at work probably anyways so so listen had a wild finish the mets scored five runs in the top of the ninth took a ten four lead going into the bottom of the ninth the natter at home and they rallied scored nine runs in the ninth walked off with a kurt suzuki three run home run and i i think i think i turned it on with a with a full count and he hit the homerun off all counts i watched like four pitches like three or four pitches all the oh well all right that's a pretty cool finish so now the question i i have for you is if we were at this game just to to know kids because at changes answered this question when when you when would you have said it's time to go look at what point where have you been like okay this game is over let's go be trafficked out here it depends i think i don't know i honestly there is still it depends on what fan you are too let's let's say where nats fans at home game and they're down ten to four going into the bottom of the ninth day what was the score before that five to four going into the ninth and then it turned into ten good than it was ten to four on at least some rents going and so it wasn't like they were completely being it sure is like ten to four from the fifth yeah those tend to four only think i would on it i think i would stay i think especially if we knew the in kids are in bed state last as long as that's the kicker 'cause the kids are they worried about being gone after five and a half that's being generous let's be real out of their four and a half now i think we'd say i think i don't i think yeah i may have been too nervous to say if i wanted to go home you'd be like no no we need to leave games early kills me that our kids can't look at their games now now for the most part they're your thing we get their way earlier than i would ever want to get there we've probably stay later than i would i'm definitely more of the social aspect of again it's true garlic fries and do i get my cup hat of ice cream that's true when you told me when we were dating that you like to get two games is what second or third inning growing up yeah like growing up we'd get there because all the dedicated people already got there and then you just get your parking after we'd get there but you know what i even went to window again well no we i think we got there early never mind i was gonna say clean win because quinn knows what's up those of you who don't know glen was mel's best friend growing up and now is one of my best friends so he he loves baseball he does he does so there's a little shadow frequent stay for the whole game would have i think we would have i think it would have been fun enough to see the hits and maybe it would be fun to see well it's fun to see teams go fans get get excited it's fun to see fans get mad sometimes if they're not your favorite fans are no i think it would be fun i think the atmosphere would be hype especially if they were able able to come back from a rally like that or come back from being down like that i think that the fans were probably really dedicated to at that point still i mean if they were able to you know fancier hander they make up a good part of the energy and so it doesn't just come straight from players and i bet i bet that had i like to think it had something to do with them coming back so i think the game would have had really good energy at that point it would've been a lot of fun they're they're sending the broadcast left because of the score and they kept saying it's too bad you left because you're missing out when it was when it was ten to eight with suzuki of the plate they were just like oh man if you turn to this game on obviously you can't hear us now but you're missing the yeah and that would be i think i've i've left games where we said oh back early that was why i brought this story up because you don't leave early early anyway that's right so let's talk about michael lorenzen plays a he's a two way player for the reds here's here's the first player to pitch get the win hit a homer and plan the field game since babe ruth that's crazy that is crazy anytime you're put into the same sentence as babe ruth when was he playing like the night before the team's opening install nice one hundred years the one hundred years yeah it's it's been a long time since that's happened because they've made pitchers into specialists they don't bring in they don't yes yes he was called up he was called up for roster expansions of this is this the guy that they said rebuilt was built like babe ruth as well or no no that's that's daniel bogo bach runs like babe ruth twinkle toes okay because i was like that's crazy if they're doing a lot of comparison he has the ability in the fact he can i mean somebody built babe ruth wouldn't be able to play outfield now unless he can in really run but but no i think it's crazy that they're letting guys not just special i mean he's a second guy now in two years to do something like that because otani came in and he was a two way player all the time he was pitching and then on his artists he was hitting a. d. h. so i think it's really cool i know i've said before that i don't like my pictures basis but that's only because they're not getting the reps if a guy is getting regular at bats and getting regular reps on the basis is that's where i think it's okay because base running so much truly understanding situation if you're out there you kinda panic if you're we're not out there a lot yeah i feel like you knew i was going to call you out because i listened to your podcast and i know you said the last week last night you don't like your pitchers hitting in here you are i think it's awesome i think that's a lot of fun i think it's if you're a good player be a good player and play and as long as you're i mean even on the players and get paid for what you're doing i hope they're making really good money you mean going going above and beyond because like you said you don't want them to risk injury and stuff like that so make sure they're getting if you're going to have you it's a two way player if you're going to be getting eating i mean if you're going to be able to do it all get paid for doing it all i think too and then i think that definitely takes the risk out of doing that maybe not is not for fans or teams like club houses and stuff and you know the business end of it but i think these players there's i mean they're baseball players first and foremost and they love the game and like you said last week though you said you said at that these this this is what they were doing before i mean if you're the best player on the field you're doing it all so why not why not do it all when on the on a and mega scale and that's the thing that i think is unfortunate about the d. h. is that it takes away that skill from a lot of these guys like am i didn't hit we have the d. agent at my high school and but what schools are playing against didn't have it and one of my buddies who is the best pitcher on our team was also one of the best hitters he begged begged or coach to DA eight twenty so let him d. h. he went to slide into third for triple hit his face on the ground a few days did you guys lose because he wasn't pitching no no no it wasn't his turn to pitch no but he he hit his face on the ground but early in that game he hit home run yeah so i i think this is i you know obviously my baseball knowledge is not fabulous but i think the semi of show boaty position as well i mean you do your best players hitting which i guess that's what you want you pay to see you no malls hit and you pay to see what basis i he did did he do he's he was mostly at first base with angels but it's extended his career yeah that's the thing about the deitch is a is a is a career extender guys like like bryce harper's doing those big hits and you wanna see them doing that so but if they don't deliver like that's the thing that's hard you're going to get paid a bunch of money for which i guess a lot of players get paid to do a bunch of money or to get get paid a bunch of money than up eh but like i feel like bryce harper and a few years is going to have to switch to the AL because he's not going to play outfield for another has contracts with thirteen years they're going to have to trade him to the AL he's he's gonna play that contract out in philly for thirteen years for that reason getting worn down yeah but yes i okay i think the two way player i think it's awesome i think it's i think it's fun i think it makes he puts that player on the map as being one of the greatest and all the things that they do they're truly great at both of them instead of just kind of jack-of-all-trades i feel like it's a great way to it i think it would sell more tickets i'd be more likely to go to angel's game because i'm like well it's not tiny turn to pitch so i'm not going to get to see him but it's like it doesn't doesn't matter he's not pitching i'm gonna get to see him hit so well and i was just going to say it's gonna if it's great for the ballpark to your you can make these take players big names and big ticket drives to before we move onto the next one i have a small correction lorenzen was not a september call up i'm i'm excited i'm mixing them up with the next guy he's been in sixty six games this year but he's not yeah that's right we'll forgive you but she's brad where's your baseball knowledge uh-huh not at all someone that's probably yelling at this podcast being like you're wrong i hope so i hope people listening enough to pay yeah but there was a september call up that i wanted to address has brian more and people have been saying moore moran it looks like more worrying to me because i had a professor named warren that's how he spells his name so to me it's martin moran but i don't know if the i don't know which is correct any what it is is brian will say marantz separate that's what i've been hearing that he was the one who got caught up this month majorly debut this last week and he was playing against is he plays for the marlins the miami marlins and they were playing against the pittsburgh pirates and happens that his brother colin moran plays for the pirates he's in his fourth season in the big league level the second full season in the big league level and so oh he ended up facing colin and it was pretty it was pretty funny because before the game they're talking to him about it like like what are you going to face your brother he says he tried to take him deep uh-huh but apparently he didn't know him enough because he got struck out on a nasty nasty slider was coming and brokeback across take colin call brain deep but kong struck out on that nasty slider it froze them it straight up froze him he didn't even swing swing backfired for sure for sure i love this when i saw the thing that i thought was so funny about it to their whole family is up in the stands when he struck out they all laughed they laugh so hard i go to you know and if i was struck if i was brian i would be cracking up to been like like showboating than if it was appropriate i would do suck it feels hoping your guns yes i am well disclaimer i'm a horrible winner an awesome loser the worst winter by rabbit in in everyone's face so if that was if i was brian i would be like all over and taunting you name it i'd be all over it i love it his family's family's all they're and they're they're what's cool i think is a i love siblings in baseball the only only one i'm most familiar with are the molina's because angels fan i have yes exactly and you know i think at the same time i think you had both brothers volk brothers catching some point i don't remember but dan and i could be insanely wrong but for some reason i know there's there are two million as i'm having i remember benji remember yada yada has been with the with the cardinals but anyways i think so but i i think what's fun because all the molina's is are pretty much all catchers pitchers and sell this is fun because these i mean they have an opportunity to go against each other and i just think that's so fun and i think the fact that all their families are supporting supporting and just the fact that there are laughing that means it's a family sport to them in fun it's still fun and it's still a love for the game i love of family and i think that's i think that's awesome to show i think that's i think that's what it should be and i think it's big if you know i love the trash talk doc before colin saying oh i'm gonna you know but i think it's awesome that was kinda cool because the roman brothers austin andrew austin the played for the mariners and andrew for the yankees when they played each other last year andrew was catching in austin camped baton he kinda he kinda hitching guards pat him on the back you know catching batting so it's it's like they they get to that closeness on the field together but you don't ever get the pitcher versus hitter peter was that's what i really liked it could be bad i mean but so i have a question for you says for taking that girl the problem i wanted to know that i have a question for you based on along the lines of this trash for you yeah so mel has three older sisters i wanna know which of your sisters would you find the most joy in striking out oh well that's hard so i'm the youngest and i'm probably i don't know if i necessarily this crappiest but scratchy against recommend i know but like personality wise it's true well right now probably juliana juliana just think that would bring me so much joy just like revenue but also maybe joy i think joys the oldest julian or just above mouth i ha- yeah so that's hard because i would love to do it to any of them i'm the youngest it's that little man syndrome you know you wanna beat them all it would be fun to do joy just because she's she's the queen bee like she and not only is she the oldest sister she's got a good six or seven inches on all of us bunch she took all the we always say she took all the brains and all the hate they didn't leave much oh gosh i save between joy and jules i think shannon would we're not i we don't have as much of a the committee competitive edge i think i think it would be funny i think we would just be giggling the whole time i think we'd probably get most like i got you know if you guys have more of like the friendly rivalry out of i don't think we take it personally but yes i think i think number i might it might be the greatest joy it'd be striking out joy that would i think that'd be pretty found the youngest get in the oldest will be it'll be a lot of fun then maybe they'd finally say this is our daughter melanie and these are other daughters melanie assist the my mom did say that while wearing while i was home last weekend about joy while we all stood there and she barely got three because she was laughing so hard that's a reference to league of their legal their own and they always reference that based on whichever sister is apparently favored at the time it's a real thing we try to win favorite daughter that's right with no prizes including a healthy relationship i'm sure all right well that's all we have current events so let's go ahead and take a short break and when we get back i have another special guest my one of my good good buddies brian and we're gonna be talking about walkup music that's gonna be fun when the designated hitter the infield fly ground rule double the dropped third strike to some these seem like strange do things to you these are just baseball things shops the baseball things collection at nine plus dot com all right welcome back baseball family and thank you for joining us again i am joined today by a good friend of mine brian say hello to the people brian hello people brian's a good friend of mine we were roommates a long time ago many many years ago arizona and idaho you know sometimes forget about that you pretty much led couch for what was it like a semester yeah i was yes yeah i was inhabiting your your place in school life essentially dismay i'd like i wasn't the coolest thing was like hey can i sleep on your couch for about warm-ups appreciate it was it started out as a weekend ended up as as four months i think you're right on that yeah it was a little longer than expected but it was fun as a lot of fun i want you to know brian a little bit better so we're going to do a quick rundown so we can slowly can get to know him better don't get caught in aw the rundown irony ready for the rundown i'm gonna do my darndest all right right here we go what is your favorite food favorite food i you gotta go lasagna me and mean garfield you know it's a beautiful thing who is your favorite baseball player growing up all that's that's the kid ken griffey junior all-time absolutely if you could have one piece of baseball memorabilia from the history austria's baseball would it be whole wow i would like to have edgar martinez tina's bat where he hit that double that's great one i love that against the yankees that that would be yeah that would be amazing that's a perfect one if you can have one superpower what would it be you know i like the i like the idea of flight i've always had cars that are sketchy at best so i would appreciate that a i can i can definitely appreciate that what's one unpopular opinion that you have just one i mean there there really are so many you know me i do know so yes but you know you know when you do you know popular i think if kiana reeves nicholas cage teamed up to do a film it would be it would break all box office records wow that's that's good i'd never heard that it's good if you were commissioner if you're MLB commissioner for a day what would you change you know honestly i probably wouldn't even think to change engine anything i'd be so star struck that i just enjoy the day all good very nice and last one if you could play any baseball position in any era what would you play oh boy you know i feel like i'm really one-sided here i'm going seattle seattle centric i would love to play outfield with the mariners in the ninety s just to be surrounded by that group of guys in my eyes would be yeah that would be a once in a lifetime type of deal that's a solid group that's awesome because that outfields amazing ninety bill there was at various points to like you had so many different guys and i mean granted your your center fielder was like i said arguably one of my favorite people and i think one of the best the better players best people to represent baseball that uh being near him would have been a trigger well especially during the era ask like he was i mean he was kinda changing stuff he kinda made baseball fun backwards hats they had those horribly colored cutoff jerseys like it was a different time it was it was cool yeah absolutely behind that all right that's all i have for for the rundown today great job brian i'm not michaeline sweating right now dow off so today brian and i we want to we wanted to talk about walkup music because music is is something that even though we have our differing opinions it's something that we have always can come together on like he candidates me to some some rap and hip hop that he listens since two i introduced him to some of the the rock that i like to listen to it it's kind of funny that we're so opposite of music but it's it is kind of where we've always come together when i thought of doing a walk episode the first guy thought was you like i i didn't i thought i'd just like hey i should get brian walk-ups i i appreciate that and you're absolutely right we and i think that's what you know especially off just appreciation of each other in different things and it's you got to see a different side of things and it makes things more fun to yeah it does does for sure so before we get too much into our songs we consider sitter to be i guess the best walkup songs let's talk a little bit of history because the walkup song is something that's that's gonna be so just standard in baseball i pretty much i i listen to a song and i think would this make a good walkup song it it's just something that's going to be so ingrained in me because of my because of the way i feel about baseball the way i think about it pretty much all the time and that's something that anytime i hear a song that's what i think of first let's do you had no i was going to say that's i mean that's funny that you know those just those little things that can remind you a baseball like like you said like what how would i look like what is your cool like that goes through my mind break people be like all my here recounts this is him yeah and the other thing i think of too sometimes it's like would people roll their eyes if they heard this song if somebody's walking like oh god this again uh-huh just pick something else yeah yeah that would probably be me i would i would have had my choices can mutate it can just just new please let them go to the plate silent we don't we don't need music cetera left on in her thank you so it's like a little bit of history with walkup song so it hasn't always been what it is now right no well no not in fact i feel like it's kind of a relatively new ish thing that players are really starting to like you said i mean it's it's now almost the tradition like it's just as much of you know changing cleats gloves like a walkup song as is now it's kind of a part of who you are as a baseball player yeah it's gotten to be that that personal level of the game which i which is one reason i i really like it agreed so the walkup music started back in the early nineteen hundreds when it was just bands in the in the stance the absolutely it was essentially you just you know just a typical rick something you'd almost see an parade like just got to sleep that end just a small group of the and that was pretty much the standard for a long time really yeah yeah and then when we come along to nineteen seventy nancy faust the hero of music and baseball she was a revolutionary for sure she definitely was and so she got on with the chicago white sox and they were these had her play the play the organ right yup yup it was in centerfield the oregon and which i think is such a strange place for an oregon at a baseball game if feels like it should be behind home plate which i don't know just because the press box which store and shortly thereafter it was i think she was in center field for about three years and they they realize i think that it was much better behind behind me so that's they eventually change stat which made way more sense it does projection wise and and how it's involved in the game everything that's behind the plate feels feels way more appropriate absolutely absolutely so what she was doing what she was just playing music and she kind of was correct me if i'm wrong here for what i understand is she would see a guy walking up to the plate and she would just play music that fit what she thought he'd looked like yeah yeah she as far as what she could see yes so she would you know definitely based on you know the the way they look different things you know even she gets to see these players you know so many times throughout the years i imagine that helped bill her arsenal of songs for these players but you know even for some of the white sox players that they had rookies is she would play who are you by the who which i thought was funny is kind of like it's a subtle little did but also really fun still like like because no one knows him you know if he's if he's a new player just came out that's a funny way to introduce into the crowd into the people she would also you know because she was an organist for a very long time spanning multiple sports actually as well but if someone was you know as some athletes do sometimes they will date popstars rather famous people so but say if someone she knew that someone was dating madonna she you might play madonna song for that person's walkup which i found incredibly funny that is funny so you think that now if iran maradas playing he would probably yeah jenny jenny from the block some real or something like that like that such a culture line that gets across in sports to like like man they would have so many good songs in different different songs being played which would be really funny yeah that's i think that's that's a cool way that she did that so she kind of revolutionized against the walkup song and then it just got to the point where you know the oregon is still kind live suu kind of us today with as far as like the i guess the automated songs just push play and you have an organ sound well now but it's been phased out and once i was just regular market music it is it was really it was very forward thinking of per to to really tailor the game like that because for the average baseball fan who might not be as interested in baseball or just you know just kind of bear it adds another aspect to the game that you might be able to identify with like when we talked like new setina week we liked music that we differ in that it still we still enjoy enjoy each other so it was just one more a really cool way for her to bring that to the game maybe keep people in the stands keep people happy during those times when baseball may be felt like it was is dragging to the just your average fan yeah and it gives you kind of extra element of i may not know the guy but i can try to match at the song like what what's is this song oh and why is she playing that for this guy so i think i think that's who actually did that a lot of fun and we have now like we said our walk up music is his personal now as it was then really but now the players are picking it in it's their way to personalize the game and one thing that i really like that players do around around opening day and later on during the season sometimes they'll tweet out or share on instagram they're they're walkup songs because some guys will have something for their first at bat second third baton and even a fourth of that the have different songs for each one will or i saw another one i think it was might have been aaron judge had it set up for for for even bats audit bats all that's that's an interest- yeah that'd be cool that's interesting yeah i had i had never thought of getting getting that involved with it that that you just you know alter nato or instead of casino bryce harper a couple years ago had four for every game first through fourth at bats different and then unfortunately he has maybe aaron judge has to be likes to walk up to he picks on even yeah which which is again kind of funny like that's like it's not like they're just hey pick something for me i i mean these these players these legitimate top caliber professional athletes are at some point during their day like all right during my i bat what's what's that first song gonna be okay cool that's a that's a hard song is going to establish a map i get a second time can't gavitt be that same song that's week what's this song gonna be like do i want to tell a story like of course i'm embellishing a little bit but it's funny to think that that's that's just as much a part of the game or as part of their season as taking BP or like it's something that is still have to think about and they want to think about yeah exactly and the fact they do think as much about it as they do as you've mentioned just now like the way when you put it that way it is funny it is i think about it that way like why were you late for BP like man i was on spotify and i was really trying to dial in preseason whatever but man i gotta i gotta because my walkup song coach like guinea i gotta get my postseason playlists down yeah it's like man are we how are we sitting in the season are we talk okay like if we go into the postseason i can't have regular season songs that's silly like who do you think i am level you didn't give me this contract to have me play the same songs all year that's not what i'm about exactly it's exactly right well let's go ahead and take a short break and when we get back we're gonna talk about what makes good walkup song and also we will list our top five favor walk-ups wonderful hey babe i'm headed to concessions to grab something yeah anything whatever you're getting okay i saw burger i'll probably that no that doesn't sound good okay i think there's barbecue probably nachos i don't think i want either of those either but just anything what do you you want a hotdog earlier okay i can do that well no couples may quarrel but baseball is for lovers shop the lovers collection action at nine plus us dot com welcome back baseball family hope you enjoyed that little break we sure did so we're going to talk about before we get a new orleans we're going to talk about what we think makes a good walk-ups on bright what's what's one thing you look look for a walk up so me personally again is we kind of you know we've touched on a little bit i'm i'm definitely really a fan of the rap and hip hop so i love if it's got a good beat in front i'm definitely gonna pay attention a little bit more i wanted to be a little bit memorable in that regard regard i and i'm kind of along the same lines like i want something that's gonna get me i don't necessarily think it's something to like get me going because his you know you're in the game you should be ready to go but also something that kind of gets you get your mind right right absolute- whether it's like i'm a sucker for a bass solo blow so if it's has a really good baseline that's probably something i'll take are really good guitar riff at the beginning that's that's kind of something i look for also i like things that get the get the crowd and vault like the get the crowd ready like oh like this is where the attention should be the takes them away from their might take away from their conversation and draw attention to home plate right absolutely there's a couple that i pick there's a couple that i picked is that's like did that this season we had drug part gerardo parra of the nationals he did baby which for me initially i'm like i couldn't do that because i wouldn't be able to like focus i'd be laughing too much in my head but at the same time everybody at the at at that ballpark everybody was clapping everybody was dancing everybody's involved everybody was watching him a home they were into it they feel like it's you know it can be it can be so different to becoming coming like because from the players perspective they might not even think about their song when it like like you said that like i doubt in his mind he's like this is the only song like this is the perfect song for me but in reality he may have had that forethought to like i mean it's kinda like the wave if everybody in the crowd out knows it they're gonna sing it and they're going to pay attention because they're like oh we know who's up we know the song like yes they're having fun and yes they're also watching you bat like it's still can cause focus while everyone's still having fun exactly that's exactly right so let's go ahead and get into our lists before we do that though i wanna say this these songs you're you're gonna recognize a lot of them i'll be honest but for anyone who doesn't recognize them or or there's some songs if you don't recognize i'm actually going to put up a page on baseball together dot com where i'll have a link to all these songs that i could find on youtube so you can go and you can watch them less likely you can watch the like a lyric video or something you can listen to the song so you can get understanding of exactly what we're talking can you because we can't play it on the podcast unfortunately because it costs a lot of money that that won't baby eventually one day because that's the type of quality that you would you will strive for so maybe one day maybe one day we'll get there we can put a bunch of a bunch of popular music on the on the podcast days out that's a few days many years away because i know i know a lot of professional podcasts that don't do that so for analysis to youtube links so all right brian hit me with your fifth walkup song my fifth so so my fifth was i had rodeo by garth brooks a lot of at least a lot of my my top five or personal to me in some form or fashion and rodeos kind of a kind of a double for me because one of the first concerts i remember going to live concerts as a child but after you listen to the song the idea of the rodeo is you know kind of a man versus a bowl and it's kind of a one on one situation that you have to be ready for and kind of the same in batting to like it's just universe the pitcher and it's it can it can be dangerous it can it can hurt workers go your way and it's a beautiful thing yeah yeah that's all i had never thought of that that's as far as the the bull writing that's awesome that i think it's a good fit rodeo let's go to see it's got a great answer to what's your what's your five number five is hip hop rabai naughty by nature that was ken griffey junior walkup song naturally that the reason that makes my list because if you're ever in a mariners game or i guess a reds game when he walked up and and hip hop came on the whole stadium everybody in the ballpark i mean they're they're gonna stop anyway 'cause juniors up everybody has got their arms up swaying back and forth for hip hop hooray everybody does everybody and it's it's awesome it's one of those songs where where everybody gets involved everybody knows what what it means and it's amazing amazing thing to experience yes the yeah the the crowd work with that song is the plus you have to wonder too i mean with being ken griffey junior i wonder how much play that song got just strictly based off of him oh i'm sure yeah because i knew the name of the song i always forget that it's not by nature but anytime i hear it my arms go up to this day eh because that's that's what i know that's long absolutely yeah it's like a it's like a guttural reaction it just happens like i can't control it the songs on uh it comes on pandora sorry guys you said come on no no nobody nobody else all right i get it okay all right number four bryant number four i chose intergalactic by the beastie boys just a little bit out out there as far as you know it's got some crazy sounds again intergalactic the title kind of makes it a little bit different but the beastie boys are fun and to me that's definitely that pump up lake it gets it gets the crowd going in my eyes it does and i don't think you can go ever go wrong with the beastie boys song i'd like i'm barney much profanity of because those are those are awesome they have such good intros they're so well put together and everybody knows yeah yeah everybody knows what he's absolutely they span yeah east coast west coast everyone pretty much will know a beastie boy saw when a hero all right my number four this this one is a little bit obscure this is this is a an international band they're not really well known that i know of in the US yet british band it's called the struts the song's called dirty sexy money who good title i thought so too and that's one of the reasons i chose because it felt like so fitting for baseball young in his all three of those that exactly exactly right but the intro to is just so good it's got such a good guitar if at the beginning and i listened to the stress on my way home from work a lot i don't have air conditioning my car's ars windows are down windows down music app and sometimes on the song comes on i listened to two times though because it's good absolutely i love that song so yeah when i'm going through this list i was like i had to pick a strong and i think that's the one it's it's it's a great rate song i love it like i said that intro because i feel like with a with a walkup song it's like a good ten to twenty seconds right yeah any in any part and the first twenty seconds that song is just fantastic the whole thing is good but that first twenty seconds i get air goes yup the instant the mood so it's awesome tweet are brian number three number three is arguably one of my favorite songs of all time mm-hmm again a lot of its associated with growing up and the just at this time money mo problems that was notorious b i g the impact daddy again the intro is is classic but the whole song it's just it's just got it's a flare it's just a flair for the dramatic even the music video if anyone goes to watch it it's outlandish and there's definitely a part of baseball on me that's i mean that's kind of what it is as you if you make a name for yourself sometimes well sometimes a lot of times these these players have to be like kind of larger than life it's a it's breaking in your personality through basically the the doldrums of what major league baseball has decided to do as far as suppressing everybody's personalities breakthrough that wall and i think that's i think that's a great one and also it's the same thing is dirty sexy money more money more problems absolutely you get that big contract you've got some the big problems ahead of us you can't hit so exit yeah that's the last year if you get in a slump that you're going to hear it from fans from your front office most likely so yeah it's on it's not just your fans it's fans across the league it's like all of the big paycheck bull you know yeah yeah it's i i think that's an awesome i think it's perfect all right but number three before i get into our share southern real quick about this so most of mind mind like i said iraq because that's pretty much what i listen to but sometimes i feel like you do have to slow it down and actually learned this from a a baseball baseball player when i was in school i thought his walkup song was very interesting because it was very different than anybody else's his walkup song was wide iverson by post malone and i thought that was interesting because that's not like your typical walkup song right no i mean i mean it's possible as it's going to have a good beat but at the same time i must like diana's way slower than everybody else's because everybody had like country rock you know everything was upbeat and that he'd step up its white iverson so as interviewing liam asked him about i said what's the deal with your walk-ups on he's like you know i tried tried a bunch of different things budgeted for music data like he's like but i came across this in a relaxed me he's like so i like this one i like this because it gets me the box i don't get to sped up i don't get to ansi i'm nice nice relaxed and he hit hit like three fifty that's us wow so it must be working yeah my first thought is funny is that in about a basketball player yeah i think he was a kid who played basketball in high school so the basketball is another one of sports but but yeah yeah that's funny i thought i thought it was cool i thought the reason was awesome again showing that these players are actually putting like he listened and went through multiple songs and got one that worked for him that wasn't just like oh it was respond or like you said pumped me up it did the opposite it calmed him down to a point where he could feel more natural in the box yeah it it kind of got his mind right form so my next one on it's kind of funny but there's also story behind this big pimp and by jay z. so that beginning it's like it's so chill it's so laid back and my freshman season playing baseball in high school i listened to this album before every rian and i made sure that as we're pulling in like the last long i listened to his big pippen because it did that it just it felt like the way that it the way that it moved in the way that it goes come the flow and the beat of the song kinda did just that account relaxed me got me in my right zone and ahead of really good season so sing of big pippen all song every game every game and it just relaxed and played so oh well so that's why i have big pippen let's because that was one that that did just that for me well not that crosses lines to because that's i mean on the off chance you hit a hit a home run you know if if you want to you want him that home run a little you started off you start to get back correctly like you it almost foreshadowed your entree you just play it every time if if i go yard this'll be perfect like i foreshadowed your shot at it it's like calling your shot beforehand without pointing you've got to be so that it's not like sixty at bats in between that would have been me like cool you hit out of the infield field don't play that song good job all right let's go to number two for you brian number two right so oh i remember when this album came out the album and the song actually is the country grammar by nelly but this actually also kind of similar to to big pimping for you as this we actually got to choose a song so we didn't have a baseball as a school sport when i was no so we had the play american american legion bowl and one of the years that i played we actually this we got kind of got the choose one song kind of for the team as as a batting song as the hitting song and that was that song and it was you know country grammar and it was definitely one of those where it it pumps you it was like all right you're about to hit you need to get him there it after it and so that was always plus i mean just listening to that side just gets you gets you riled up so it was a it's a fun song as well oh it does that song holds up so well to this does so good album like man he really came out and just just the whole album is great but it's yeah specifically that song yeah you can play it now when people one people know just about every word to it and you're gonna have have people who are in their forties and probably people in their twenties who would probably still know that song absolutely number two for me i'm gonna go with given up by linkin park and this is because i i thought it's a really good song it's a great song lincoln park work is one of those bands that i've i haven't kept up with over the years but they're still like a big part of my library right because of how how big of a role he played for i mean i feel like anybody my age when we were in high school you know it was linked everybody listening to bark so so given up by lincoln park um and just because it just rocked so hard i it's like the opposite end of the spectrum of pimp it really does if anybody's ever seen red too it's the it's the song that plays in the background of the one of the big fight scenes and it's chester bennington got like the superintendent scream and honestly i know a lot of people will say that my kind of music that i listen to i'll say it's like straight up like people say it's crap with that because i know it's not for everybody but that's one of the things i love about that song is it just a hit so hard and it's awesome it would just it would just draw so much attention from it who would it be like what is this so that's just what i feel sorry go ahead i was gonna say just lincoln park when they came when they came on the scene musically i mean they had a little bit of everything because well first let's say this recipe the chester bennington he was an amazing artists and again i think a little bit with with lincoln park they they had they had someone who had wrap they had someone who could you know do almost screaming scream out type has i mean his screaming was still musical and he he was such a good vocalist two labs screaming he can legitimately say yes and it was yeah they they just kinda tapped into every you know a little bit of multiple genres and i think when they came out with such an interesting mix and it just it did it made a lasting impact one on music but on on people just who enjoy those well yup so before we get into our number one i wanna talk about entrance prince songs for closers because i love closers i think they're some of the just the toughest guys in baseball because they've got to be a completely different breed and honestly two of the most popular i guess you wouldn't call walkup song com entrance songs in really the history of baseball where foreclosures right you've got mariano rivera with entertainment and then you've got trevor hoffman with bell it and i just i i think it's so cool that those were it's just like ninth inning comes atop the ninth inning incomes and that music it's and it's just like immediate like fear if the visiting team just no we're gonna have to yes that's over you yeah you know the whole field players fans you know exactly like it's almost like a the twelve o'clock bell tolls so here comes yeah yeah and and if you've ever been at a game when and closer comes in and whatever it is a place it's like they crank the volume up to eleven because the pl- the places just shaking and it's awesome well the closer cubs in every time i've been in a mariners game which is probably three times that of all the games that i've been they had the the closer has come in it's like safeco at the time now t mobile was shaking and it's like you could fill it your chest you can feel he's like you get goosebumps because it's just it's just such energy and the music that they play for those closer to the come in that brings such energy to it as well they do and one one thing one thing specifically sorry i'm i'm going to interject because you brought up the mariners and closers and again clearly i've been a little bit mariners centric throughout the start of awesome finishing seattle holden near and dear to my heart so watching edwin d az or sugar diaz the closer they would do stuff stuff with the lights to go along with his song as well so the stadium's going in and out with sites and so i mean it's full production for these closures for that you know arguably three outs like that's it yeah there was somebody i saw one time they turned the lights off for him i can't remember who it was but they took it was it was like a entrance they turned the lights off and they had the jumba then they had to like the screen you know and then they played the music music and it was like whoa what's going yeah yeah so so brian give me you were closer entrance song this this one again might be a little cheesy but this would be one that i think would go along with what i would enjoy and also i think that the fans again that's going to bring attention it's going to get everyone a little bit riled up would be here comes the boom a little self explanatory and the title but still like i want to have that like you said closer different breed than you're going to have a little bit of extra bravado auto to to go in there and i want to let people know like this is i'm the boom like i'm coming in so get ready to get fan and go home absolutely i think it's also so mine actually was inspired by brian wilson because the guy is a little bit crazy you probably had a screw loose but i loved watching him because he was he had so much energy so exciting all the time and i think it was him i i want to say it was him who spreen in from the bullpen which is classic right which is something somebody with screws would do because we were pretty much guessing yourself by ten commandments the perfect it is it's a very long ways but i- for somebody like that who's bringing that much energy i thought it was awesome and so he kind of inspired my entrance song because if i was a closer that's what i would do just go in there just get it done so this is i talked a little bit about how i like some of the heavier stuff and this is about as hard gets me in this list is long as called until we die by escape the fate it's like borderline like metal post hardcore for kind of like that scream oh okay but the thing that's super cool about this song is the i've i've thought about this a lot i heard this like this would be the perfect song for brian wilson to come come on close to because the way that the way that it builds is so rat there's there's like a like guitar solo at the beginning if i remember right yeah yeah that's what it is so the guitar comes in from previous line kind of legislative like kind of like turns up and then and then they say that they sing the name of the song or screaming and then there's this awesome guitarist like once that guitarist comes in if they opened up the door and he just keeps sprinting was qatar is playing against honestly me goosebumps thinking about it and then he sprints the mound and then picks on if he's like if he's throwing his pitches as the as the word start like as vocal start like it would be so perfectly timed and if is the crowd i'd be so fired up because there's like parts with the with the chorus where like the crowd kit you get like sing along with it and it would just be like the coolest thing yeah it's i think that would just be like the best most fired up anybody with a walker with a with a closer interest song right now and i i'm not kidding goosebumps thinking and be yeah and that's kind of you know like the difference too of like when you're in the batter's box you might want to be a little calmer but you do have to be a little amped up to come out there to pitch you know just just a handful of times then you've gotta bring it every single one of those times yeah and especially those pictures like the closers these days like they're all guys who throw one hundred and three absolutely the metal is just always always like they're never really calm yeah like you got to be some kind of amped up to be thrown on that hard absolutely i think it's so perfect so per so fitting for some some mental closer who's ready to go out there and face those three three batters all right never once on brian what's your number one walk-ups on my number one and shocker this one is coming right out of seattle seattle this was one of the first songs that i remember and you know to to give a little reader's digest version of of my background born in seattle seattle but moved to montana when i was a kid so we didn't really have a lot of sports in montana but one of the first songs i can remember living in seattle was sir mix mix a lot and it's my policies on broadway and it's it's just again it's a heavy heavy bass be right in the beginning and it really it actually and i would say being made fun of you know growing up in a small town in rural montana for listening to mostly rapper pop this is what started it all for me and it's it kind of brings me back to those old days the king dome and just old mariners baseball and again just a great i think just get the crowd doane great sing along to as well so yeah yeah yeah that's awesome i love the personal ties with all your songs i think that's i think that's an i think that's another big thing of what walkup song should be they they should have some kind of personal meeting but that's just kind of my cheesy take on it no no i agree and i think one thing especially with you know with the casual baseball fan we have to baseball if you talk to most people all i can go to a game i'd never watched one on TV it's way too long it's way too boring doing nothing happens in my opinion i can watch a game on TV i can watch them person and can still be social but those those little hooks that keep people going to ballparks are watching games in the peak their interest so if you have a song that someone already has an emotional tie to you you keep them at the game a little bit longer because like oh my guys coming up they don't know who that guy is but they might know his song and that might be like nope i want to hear the song again here this you know watch this at bat that's awesome like that brad you're number one let's hear it my number one is back in black by ACDC that is that's got to be one of the most iconic guitar solos at the beginning right yeah i i don't think yeah i think everyone even if they don't know the song they they know that they know that beginning and i think it's awesome i think that's such a perfect way like slab down that way slammed don't down off the bat or whatever and just straight up to the bottles as you're back in black you're bad you're ready to i think that's such a such a sweet walkup song and i think one time in high school i was playing at tournament and i think this might be why i'm so drawn to it i walked up to on time because they didn't let let us pick but at this tournament but they would just play music as we were walking out and and they've they played it i just like i could hit the cover off the ball and it just gave me so much confidence so it's i think that's part of the reason it it does land as my number one but also just because it's just i don't know it's kind of like it's just always kind of been my go-to papa you that'd be yeah so like you said though an iconic song with gets everyone going it doesn't matter who you are that's although i have another gym brad i didn't i didn't even bring this is up yeah i wanted to kind of save this because i feel like the the baseball gods were smiling on us via twitter oddly enough and it was funny it was a a little bit for two it is for this to happen and you know for us to be talking about this the specific subject of walkup songs so christian yelich of the milwaukee brewers who i'm sure most people now i'm sure you may have heard of him big fan a big fan exactly so he recently he's going to be in the next issue i believe it comes out and september of ESPN's the body issue and oh yeah yep that's out of so you know some people find it controversial including some woman named roxanne in who scolded him via twitter for doing this for for posing for this which i thought was interesting it again people are willing to just call out a stranger on twitter of course note for him not being you know a a stand end up individual for for posing for this iconic magazine so in his next game his his walkup walkup song for that game he changed to roxanne who is the woman's first name who sent the tweet i thought it was so like such such a power move to do anything rude on twitter he just i think tweet to her was just relaxed roxanne which i thought was funny but yeah to add like these songs have power like what was his you know besides sending a tweet out his next recourse was using his walkup song as like are here i'm going to play i'm gonna play song for you and i thought it was such a funny thing to do and when i heard that i i lost it

Patrick Happy Valentine's Day if you have the EP show calendar you know that I'm featured in the month of February with an Arrow through my heart as I have not literally but I would have done it because I'm not kind of method actor but I have a A dozen roses in my hand and bleeding with my Tuxedo shirt on and there. It is right there if you're watching on Audience Channel. Two thousand nine direct TV or be our live at. Just me with my bowtie off my shirt. It's like my I I'm trying to be James Bond like they're a little bit with the way I'm dressed but Arrow through my heart bleeding. Just asking you to be my Valentine. Hopefully you survived last hour as todd gave us his Valentine's Day sports related names. I had somebody who tweeted who said Roses are red violets are blue. Please end this segment nice. We have some leftover names. Paulie is now supplying these now. Did fans offer these operas? This your addition no not me Booby Gibson former guard imitation cleavage able like that one. Yeah we We had about eight names. Todd could not use and he's still been arguing that during the commercial sneaky savage. Can if somebody sees you on the street and you WANNA give those names to them. Then you can kinda handed them directly yes. Uk off the if. You're at the APPLEBEES Glastonbury. Connecticut client establish maybe Chili's Friday's the NBA. All Star game is usually a celebration of the sport but this year in Chicago is going to be a little bit different. Because it's the first chance for players coaches in media to all be in one place since the tragic death of Kobe Bryant and his daughter League also have a chance to memorialize the former commissioner. David Stern who passed away in January. Hopefully there will be a balance. I expect a lot of tears lot of stories. We know how much Kobe loved basketball loved to compete to honor. Koby. You'd like to see the All Star game. Go on Sunday and play play. Competitively here go all out in the. All Star game. Because that's who Kobe was. Kobe was all about the joy the game but he was as competitive as anybody we've ever seen. It's going to be a tough couple days for people in Chicago but it might be Cathartic that everybody gets a chance to say goodbye to Kobe. Bryant and his memory that's what the NBA and its fans will be attempting to do this weekend now. I don't know if you saw this. I saw the clip. Didn't get to see the show because we were on the same time with the first take. Isaiah. Thomas was on with Stephen. A Smith and Scottie. Pippen was on there as well and they were talking about great teams and what the Pistons did and Isaiah said. I never had a Scottie Pippen. As if now maybe. I'm reading into this like hey I did this on my own I did. Michael had Scottie. I didn't have that. Well I'm looking at is as roster. Their Bill Laimbeer was a good player. Joe Dumars is a hall of Famer. Dennis Rodman is a hall of Famer. How many hall of Famers did Michael Jordan play with during his run with the Bulls Rodman and pippen right? I don't think there's anybody else. So it feels like Isaiah had a pretty good roster around him. He had a hall of fame coach and Chuck Daly. And you had. That was a really good balanced team with the Pistons. Laimbeer wasn't your prototypical center. But he was unique. Offensively and defensively dumars was a wonderful two way player. Rodman. That was sort of. They got the best of Rodman. In my opinion that was the best Denis Rodman because he was a great defender and he was a pogo stick he would just had so much energy. The Pistons got the Best Denis Rodman version that that was out there you know Dennis later in. His career. Became sort of a sideshow wasn't known for his defense. Certainly not his offense and he got a lot of notoriety for the way he dressed his hair color. Any gotTa Lotta rebounds but you know. Dennis became sort of a caricature. He was great but he was nowhere near what he was with the Pistons. So I don't know what Isaiah was getting at is as a hall of Famer but when you say I didn't have a Scottie Pippen. No you didn't now if you said to Jordan. You're not gonNA have Scotty but you're GONNA have Rodman. Joe Dumars Vinnie Johnson. Bill laimbeer Buddha Edwards. You gotTA deeper team there. You got better players better all around players. I don't know what Isaiah was getting out of if he was saying. Hey you know what I did this kind of on my own Michael at least had Scottie and I don't know what the reaction was. I just saw the clip. Where Isaiah was saying that I thought well. That's Kinda strange. Yes Boeing some people think because they were in Chicago is as Thomas was over praising pin saying like you know skip Scottie. Pippen is a top fifty player of all time. Dumars wasn't Robbins. Not and he may have been giving pippin extra love because he was right. There made like over. Complementing cannot meaning to shortchanges own staff. But he did. I know but you know. People sometimes played to the crowd play to the person across from them. He may have been doing that. Without thinking of the Vulcan Yeah. I was surprised when I heard that because I thought you know what? If you said to Michael Jordan you get to swap lineups taken up on that because I would. I would think long and hard about that if you're saying. Hey you got Craig. Hodges or Steve Kerr John Paxson Bill Wennington and you got Horace Grant now. Horace grant was a solid solid player. He was good player. But if you said I can have that Rodman Dumars laimbeer that. That's pretty good lineup. They're pretty good lineup. There all right eight seven seven three. Dp show email address GPA. Dan Patrick Dot com clippers lost in double overtime to the Celtics last night as a Jason. Tatum went off for thirty nine. Paul George reinjured the hamstring here. I don't know how big of a story it is right now. I think we're going to have to see if this is just going to be chronic with him how that affects load management here but going into the all star weekend and hobbled a little bit here but Reinjuring that hamstring. And I'd be a little nervous here if that's going to be reoccurring. We haven't heard much about Paul George this year. What kind of numbers? Just Paul George have mclovin. If you can check how many games they played and we're kind of numbers as wonderful talent. Obviously but in a after a while we have load. Management is not helping you with this then. That looks like it's going to be a bigger bigger problem. Second half of the season. Yeah mclovin. So He's playing his twenty one point seven points a game six rebounds four assists basically twenty nine point four minutes a game in thirty four games average little more last year. That style. Play numbers are down. His numbers are way down but he's also his style. Plays Not really you know. He's just efficient. He's not like super highlighted guy. Well quite Leonard's not sue now highlight either. I think the clippers are great. They're kind of boring even last night against the Celtics. I'm like Oh right is GonNa Juki a couple times where you don't get style point right but that's why I feel like we don't talk about Paul George for that very reason you know. The Raptors were probably considered boring. Yeah not highlight. Yeah like the Spurs being the boring US chart the top of all time Tim. Dunkin's Bank shopping. The most boring shot of all time. The Spurs had flashier uniforms with that have helped a little bit probably not I think the spurs hurt the NBA. For ten years. I think people fell out of love with that sport piece of the Spurs. But why is it that you have what would be considered an NBA dynasty? I guess and and we were bored with that. I don't know like winning. We're not as interested in winning as we are in style. Points like boy. They look good right. Yeah I mean. I think like you needed Lebron Steph curry to reenergize the sport. I don't know why he eats them like flash or something like there's no sizzle that team. The only sizzle was Tony Parker with Eva. Longoria that that was sort of it. But you're right. Nickname is the big fundamental. You Know Tim Duncan today. Name come on out and see the big fundamental Chris Bounce Pass Mice Bank Shot. He plays the pick and roll. Well yes now like. Did you interview a lot of the Spurs guys? They didn't do great interviews. Either that was part of. They might have been good but they weren't interesting. They were never made available very rarely made available. I will say this. Tim Duncan off camera. Got a wonderful personality very funny sneaky sense of humor. But they don't. They didn't want to show that from Popovich on down. Nobody really expressed a desire to be in front of the camera. L. Parker Ginobili David Robinson was a good interview. I mean he's he just presents himself as he's smiling and and he's he's a fun lively. Guy Duncan if you got Duncan off camera and you could get that on camera then. You would see that he had some personality. The Spurs layup line was the highlight of the game. That was the best part of the game. The game itself would just be like Tony Parker with little sidestep move. Nobody going to his. Left unstoppable. Now Ju- nobly was fun to watch. He's one of my favorite players of all time. Yeah you know I'm going left. I know I'm going left. And he's like the mole Rivera of left-handed scores. Like you know it's coming. You can't do anything about it. I loved I loved watching John McCallum. I love when you describe guys is like well eared. They're funny off camera. You keep hearing. Their of rebel ballot. Check Eli and Tim Duncan A. You're always like people keep telling me. Ballot checks off camera if I said you can have beers with ally Bella checker. Tim Duncan when you've had beers with a couple of those guys have yes I have? Yeah I'd I'd wind with. Tim Duncan had beers with Eli. I had nothing with Bill Belichick. He snubbed one yes he did yes he did. I don't know if that's considered a snub snub. When you know somebody but you don't want to shake their hand or is it just I? I didn't see you and I you know I just saw Tony. Dungee and Rodney Harrison. That's accident a snub as a choice. If I'M GONNA go with that was an accident. Bill did not shake my hand he could have chose to deliberately Nazi. You which is also called ignoring someone which feels more on the slab in the snub category. All right all right. Yes todd bill belt you give the waiter a waitress a hard time like. Where would you like for an appetizer to dessert? I guess when he's out with his girlfriend that he's probably you know cordial romantic hungry. I don't know why don't why we're doing here but not that. He doesn't sound that way when you're talking to him. He only t he sounds that way when he talks to the media or soon going to have to answer anything gluten free market eager wine warming here beers with Bela check. I mean how about that show. Who's in who wants to watch? That's my next podcast beers with Bela check. Why do I want to say that? Tim Duncan is the best one on that list. Though he's he actually seems like he would be the most fun and I don't. I'd have no reason. I don't know what I'm basing that on. Yes mclovin I'm all team. Eli Because I saw you and one time at the end of the it was like a comedy do well. We were over at the bar by ourselves just talking and it was you know we were kind of taking dead. Aim At people in the room and having some fun but now he's sneaky. Funny Docket sneaky into Yes yes. I found Dunkin really interesting now. He just he. He's not what you you think. He is off the floor. Yes mclovin. I'm assuming like the most beer guy. Charles Barkley is he the one guy. Everyone would want to have a beer with like. Who's the most obvious? Talkable guy that you've talked to have beers with that it's easiest flow. Doesn't it feel like everybody's had a beer? Charles Barkley point his career Charles is wonderful just very generous and and he's fun he just and he's interested in what you're you're whatever you're saying he's interested in he gives. You is attention there. But he's a very generous guy. Yup Remember a couple of years ago. Where in Minnesota for the final four? I was airport heading out. We all were leaving for the weekend and Charles is walking into Minneapolis. We're crossing and we see each other McKay and I said hey he was. Where where where are you going boy? I tell them we're leaving now. He goes where the rest of the guys in the airport he was. Let's go to the hotel. Let's go to the bar because he wanted to go to the airport bar. He just landed to hang on. You guys us. I said I think runs bouncing. Oh I just saw this the nationals catcher. Kurt Suzuki accuses the Astros of cheating in the twenty nineteen world series. Here we go let me see. I just got this. You know what? Let me take a break. I'll come back. Let me let me read through this.

I teased this item that I just got nationals catcher. Kurt Suzuki Accuses Astros of cheating in the twenty one thousand nine world series. I told you is going to be open. Open season here it is the nationals catcher. Kurt Suzuki the latest to Chime in on the scandal. Telling The Washington Post. Tom Boswell Houston used. Its illicit system in the world series. This past year we could hear it from their dugout. We heard they're whistling. What are you going to do? Suzuki told Boswell I kept thinking. We have to go onto the field and work early on Our signs in the world series. Just to stop. They're cheating. It's so stupid. In so wrong. Suzuki in the national still to be the Astros. Despite the alleged cheating Washington overcame a three two world series deficit winning game seven in Houston. So it's not that inflammatory. But it feels like you're going to be able to say something now because everybody else feels like other players are going to be saying this yes. There's a lot of clips from two thousand seventeen you could find the Internet of The Bang Bang sound the garbage can or whatever it was in the in the dugout and there's one pitcher who actually notices it and all you hear any runs over his catcher and they go he saying they got they got US. We gotTA CHANGE IT and they changed the sign and the next pitch. The Astros missed the bang. Bang for the off speed because they change signs in the moment not at the end of the ending or the end of the game. It makes sense that the Astros would say heyman. People are catching onto this bang. Bang thing we need something new something more subtle and whistling could be that you hear whistling all the time but if you know what to listen for what to pick out of course you would catch it. I don't think that you're gonNA stop doing it unless you all of a sudden you have this moment of conscience and you go on second. You've done it like it's the same thing with steroids performance. Enhancing Drugs I. It's working. You won the world series. So you'RE GONNA go. You Know I. I feel dirty but the year before winning the world series. You weren't in the playoffs so it did work. And maybe that's where you got to wear the BUZZER. Plus how would they decide who gets the where the BUZZER? That's what I WANNA know if you've got it. Let's say you're a guy who's not a great hitter. I need the Buzzer buzzer worthy. Yeah like wise to get it. Let's say why can I get a buzzer? I could imagine me on the clubhouse. I see get the BUZZER. Why can't I? Yes as far as having a conscience because it's a collective situation if one or two of the guys who like. I don't think we should do this anymore but the majority wanted to do it. I don't know how you can have a couple of not doing. You're either all in or you're not. You're not a tennis player Golfer where you can cheat or not cheat and it just affects you. I don't know how you can go rogue and say you guys do it. I'm not going to do well in Garrett Cole said he didn't know anything about it. Justin verlander said. I should have done more. But what did you do? It sounds like you did less. You didn't do more but walk me through. What did you say because after the fact it sounds like you? Soften this a little bit by saying you know should have done more. Yeah you showed up but you didn't. You're trying to tell me of Justin Burland. Nder goes into that locker room and says guys this stops it stops now. I can't be a part of this. Let's let's win but win legitimately but we can't. We can't be this. This isn't who we are. This isn't what I signed up for. Do you think they're going to go? Screw for lander. Yeah you gotta say looking back journalists say. Why didn't you speak up sooner? It's nice now. If factor say I should have said something but what do you think in that prevented you? And then he's forced to say well. We were winning and and the jets at the world's now I know it's just it's tough. Yeah there's a. I seem to remember this. The Yankees got into a whistling. I was reading back. There was an argument in game one day. Lcs We're both dugouts screaming at each other. You basically stop the Games a whistling. Yeah and John Boy has all these whistling on tape but it's harder he said it's John Boy. Is Twitter Account? Who found a lot of the banging? Yeah He. He said the whistling harder to tell them the banging because everyone in the crowd is whistling to but this is not new. What Kurtz Zouqi saying? And this is going to come up. This will stay with certain players on the Astros. It'll stay with Al Tuba the rest of his career and then if he has hall of fame numbers were then. That's GONNA come up as well but this is going to stay with L. to. I don't know anybody else who's a an everyday lineup guy? Who would be up for the hall of fame and then this might come back and haunt them but L. E. V. I was listening yesterday where people were People in this business were saying this is worse than steroid like what they're doing stealing signs I and my point is. You're still stealing in a different way if you're using steroids you're stealing from the other team because you're using something illegal. Yup. Oh this'll be like if a baseball team decided their entire roster is going to use steroids and the trainers found a way to beat drug test. That's what this is steroids where you'll usually more probably of an individual choice or a couple of guys on the team getting together. Imagine a training staff for Major League Baseball team saying hey guys. Here's what you take and when you go to urinate here's what you put in. And here's the way to beat the system. That's what this is well. This is what happened in the Soviet Union That was systemic. And I mean I wouldn't allow them back in the Olympics ever again. But you know they they wanted to have. Russia still be able to compete in allowed some of these people back in. If you look at that documentary. What what is it and how they went about trying to steal urine samples because they knew they were going to test positive and replace them like breaking into the room where the testing was gonNA take place. It was crazy but what the Astros did I don't think is just limited to banging a garbage can feels like it's a little bit more than that and after a while you're probably going to say you know what we may get busted this way or we're we got busted this way. Let's change what we're going to do because it worked. You're winning over one hundred games. You're going to world series plural. Yes He. I was listening to a video from game. Five of the world series at highlighting. The whistling. New dear. Oh dear yeah it's it's interesting. Can we grab the audio on the on the Senate to twos okay is Urban I could probably play it right over here but you wanna try that right so they give each one like the call. Like a regular whistle or charge whistle right so this is the charge whistle. You do what you do have to listen to be. This is the regular whistle. You have to listen closely though. This is game five of the world series. GotTa love sitting here at midday that here. Yeah it's like Mary beginning. Go Back Love Sitting. Get speed pitch probably to battle. Now you have to listen for the charge reflected on the net. That coca listened to that score. Not that fast ball. That's a home run actually. That was this one's going out of the park. Yeah again yeah. There's another pitch three gone. I think it'd be you know it's that this sound for the charge. I think it's I'm going to put a charge in this baseball charge. There's there's at least another ninety seconds just this one video took two seconds to find. Yeah Ray Ray in Texas. Hey Ray what do you have for me? Maybe I ray Ray thank you. Yes as you say if you listen to that audio that Seton played and he just played it for us and we had no context and didn't know what to listen for. You make well. There's a bunch of whistles but if you know there's two choices of whistles and you're sitting in the batter's box and you're cued and your ears are perked up for that you it'd be easy to pick out on the field easy. Well once you hear it now. You know what you're listening for. Then you go. Oh my gosh right there in front of me but hit the ball go. I know I don't know if this is new. Evidence for the Commissioner. I I'M GONNA. Guess the Commissioner is more than ready to move on from. This certainly sounded like that from the Astros players perspective. Hey the commission investigated and he found that found out that there was no usage of buzzers. We guys didn't say you didn't do it. The commissioner did not find any evidence of US using buzzers. I didn't say that. Yeah you did mclovin. I feel like this is a Yahoo College football situation. Where the Committee? Of course there commissioners would find anything but the media is GonNa yes. Yeah and that's where. The Commissioner's office runs the risk of being embarrassed. And then if that happens now all of a sudden you're going to go I I'm getting really. I'm GonNa Bring Down the curtain on you hear a little bit. It feels it. Everybody knows the players know. They're not being punished. That owner. Okay. Five million dollars in a couple of draft picks you sign up for that any day. Hey you guys got scarlet letter attached to you. We're now the Houston asterisk. But and I gotTA PAY FIVE MILLION DOLLARS AND WE LOSE. A COUPLE OF DRAFT. Picks all in favor for a world series. Say I I but I don't WanNa hear I should have done more burland and Brian McCann are keepers of the flame here. Those guys always talk about the integrity of the game. Are you trying to tell me that? Those two guys couldn't stand up to how many guys in the everyday lineup and say stop. This is embarrassing. We don't need this. I can't find that and Carlos Beltran steamrolled US diddy like Carlos Beltran saying to l. too vague in Bregman. And Everybody Karan. I demand you guys do know you stopped being Williams like you're grown ass men stop blaming one guy and don't tell me you should have done more todd. It's also a lot easier to accept remorse when an accident happens in life when you're doing something over and over again intentionally. Remorse goes flat. Police said it the other day. They're remorseful because they got caught because they did it for a long time and they would continue to do that. If that's going to bring you world series titles. Why would you stop? That's the only remorse getting caught cheaters? They'll continue to cheat. They're just bombed. They got caught. It's not like they go cash on second. Thought what were we doing? Yep but you can't say what you really think is like I'm not sorry. We got a world series. I got a big pay. Raise a world series bonus. I got a ring. I got a very lenders. Go into the hall of fame Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah. All those things happen and you can't take them back. Barry Bonds is in sorry he cheated Roger. Clemens is in sorry. Oh is immortal for multiple reasons. But Barry Bonds may three quarters of his salary after he started taking drugs. No He's not. Sorry so you cheat the game. By artificially inflated numbers says well think of the salaries and how that impacted baseball where all of a sudden if I if I hit that I get this. Because these are you're gonNA compare me my numbers to somebody played in the fifties or sixties. Hey Maze only did this or mantle. Only did this or Hank Aaron and look at look at where we're doing I mean. These numbers skyrocket look at the amount of money A. Rod made on cheating clemens. Clements career was over bonds. You know he's making twenty million dollars a year when he was with the giants wonderful players. But if you said hey give the money back and nobody will ever know anything about this and will judge you on your careers hall of Famer. Thank you for that money back. Barry Bonds made one hundred and fifty of his one hundred ninety million dollars after the year. Two Thousand and that's was the year that he allegedly boss based reports made that move. Good business decision if you can take you know people staring whispering and your best friend goes to prison or your trainer goes to prison get suspended for one game. He never got no. I know I hear this. All the time from apologised. Hey you still gotta hit the baseball. Hey you never tested positive. All right. If you WANNA believe that fun I choose not to madden south. Carolina joins us. Hi Matt What do you have for me today? Hey Bob going maybe Do pretty good so I Wanted to get some advice from you guys last night and my fiance celebrated Valentine's to Kinda beat the traffic of actual Valentine's Day.

You knew today was Valentine's Day. But you said you beat the rush to celebrate. Valentine's Day yesterday so it sounds like you're on my side. So Am I green card to go ahead and crushed with the boys like on every Friday? Does she know that last night was a Valentine's Day celebration I think but I also think she infers things a lot of times and expect other things. Well you can't go out with the boys come on now you can hang up and listen okay all right. Thank you yes. That dude is out of his mind where he he's like you did. She know that last night was Valentine's Day he goes I think so so. Can I go crush beers tonight? Whoa you are out out of your mind. The goodness is. This'll be your last about doesn't even know my middle name but she knows when Valentine's most other adults I still do a card or empowers or something. It's probably already too late because you already didn't wake up two cards and flower. I got out of the House early. That your vote yes. Yeah and then didn't WanNa wake you dot dot. Yeah Happy Valentine's Day exactly out the door. Hey Fed the pets got out and didn't want to wake you love you happy. Valentine's Day anybody do anything magical today. Magical Agile is an interesting word anything. Okay anything anybody do anything today. Yes I had flowers waiting downstairs when she came down from getting ready for work.

Jump on that okay. But you know today's Valentine's Day dinner on like Matt South Carolina. I may not have a nice carville ice cream cake in the freezer. Hopefully he's not listening. That's intense nothing. Says Romance is your wife nine. What's five guys in a little group? I gotta buy like a fur coat that a diamond. What about US mclovin okay? I know I did something.

Here so he says that during that melee back in November that Mason. Rudolph used a racial slur and here is a portion of that interview with me crimes and Myles Garrett I mean come off the edge. Ten letters less than fifteen seconds. I remember that I didn't WanNa be on the field but now since I was already out there and they were throwing the ball sales going to play so he started the Baugh. He's he's wanting to throw. I'm going to hit him in the strike zone. I'm not trying to do anything illegal. I go to take him down. He says some worry that we're going down. What did he say to you? I mean he called me the n Word Kami stupid and we're I don't like I don't say the N. word whether it's a PR to me personally. Just shouldn't be Sir all right. Got One other clip here with meantime asking Myles Garrett and myles Garrett said that he's not using this as a crutch for why he acted the way he did against Mason Rudolph. That didn't want to use it as justification for my actions because there's nothing to justify like there's there's nothing I can say or do just what I did on that day. I'm not saying there's to justify than I didn't do anything wrong and I know what I know what happened. I know what I heard. People say things no when they're heated on their full of emotion and leave it on the field. He said it but that was three months ago. Four months ago now I leave behind ways not leaving it behind. Because if he chose to he said to me in. Espn all do an interview. But I don't WanNa talk about that or no interview so he does. WanNa talk about it. Mason Rudolph has had no response as of yet. But this is only come out in the last Twenty four hours. But if I'm if I Mason Rudolph and I didn't say this then I say hooked me up to a lie detector tests whatever you how is it that something said on the football field is not picked? Up By? All those microphones that they have and I don't know if they're in a pile or it happened out sat as their face to face. This is the one thing that I wondered. And maybe both are correct. If you've ever seen the pouncey brothers when they work out their video with Richie Incognito and they use the N. word all the time and Marquees. Pouncey was suspended two games for his role in this. Is it possible? Marquees pouncey could have called myles. Garrett that is it possible it would explain a lot here but I. I don't know that and I'm not picking sides here first of all even if that said to myles Garrett in the moment there's a lot of horrible things that are set on a football field. That doesn't give you justification to do that. You might be angry. There's a lot of things that have been said during a football game. That are far worse than what we said or allegedly said their districts. And this is coming from Tony Dungy. So it's not like. Hey how do you know about how you'd feel with the n? Word I'm paraphrasing here with. Tony Dungy Tony Says No matter what is said. There's no justification for that. In fact to be fair to the situation this is from Mike. Florio's column and Tony Dungy said in the immediate aftermath of Garrett's claim of racial slur coming to like if we're in the bottom of the pile and Mason Rudolph meaning you in the Groin. There is trying to poke your eyes out or twisting your knees something like that. Then it's going to affect your ability to do your work and your career. Then yeah you go off but you can't go off because somebody said something to you. All kinds of things get said out there on the field. There's four letter words. In this case it may have been a six letter word a multi syllable word all of that happens. I can't go off in jeopardize my team's chances to go to the playoffs. Mike career my ability to make money because somebody called me a name. I don't care what name he said. That is not an excuse to me. That's Tony Dungy's words so we separate those comments final hour coming up. Johnny Bench will join us. We'll see make the astros cheating scandal also spicy P Pasco Siaka the raptors for will join us. Well busy final hour in this trigger. Meet Friday. We'll try to throw a couple of trigger.

Washington Nationals Off-Season Overview w/ Jesse Dougherty (The Washington Post) + Top 5 P NL East

"Welcome. To painting corners, your weekly Bod gas or all things baseball. Now. Here are your host Austin Hartsfield, and Dave quit Caskey. Jussie dougherty. From the Washington Post is with us to talk nationals. Now, there's an elephant in the room. It's a pretty big elephant. Actually, I mean, he's a top five player in baseball when he's healthy and swinging the bat correctly, Bryce Harper is he coming back in what's your percentage on his kind of situation with the nationals right now? My my hunch is at he's not. So the percentage I'll put it that it was like eighty to eighty five he goes somewhere else in then like seventy five of that percentage. I'm babbling numbers. So I'm not really sure where that puts us is the Phillies. So I guess I guess it's like most most of the non nationals percentage for me is is going to Philadelphia. And then I guess I I'm not going to count him out and go into the Yankees until it actually he's actually playing for another team. Just because of how they've been historically even though they've said repeatedly, they're not in it. And then dodgers, I guess on the short term hyave, you'll high could be possible. But I just don't see being the nationals. I guess they are still in for the sole fact that they've ever quote, unquote, close the door on anything. But at this point, I think it's trending away from them and is going to is going to land harp worth no team. Yes. You do. You think he winds up in the NFL east like me, and you said Philly, obviously. But I mean is there any other options? Really? I mean, you have a team like the dodgers who known. To throw their hat in the ring. You also have a White Sox team that's oddly out of place when it comes to the teams that we're talking about like where is Philly? Your hunch Phillies might yeah delays. Definitely my hunch. I I just think they're the only team that's had like a direct tied him since the winter meetings aside from the nationals who had a pre-christmas meeting, and then the Phillies met with him in Vegas other than that. I'm not going to believe anything like back door, or or secretive is going on that we wouldn't know about because I think if let's say the White Sox or the dodgers or whoever the Yankees were meeting with him or or making offers Scott Boris would be putting that out there. It's this stuff is you know, it's it's nuance in the sense that agents approach this differently. And they, you know, obviously, there's the there's the rules that are followed about not sort of tampering with the market through the media. But it's been so radio silent on Bryce for the last month. Or so that I'm led to believe that that's because the market. Just totally stale. And I think that's why it's trending towards Adelphia because they're the team that showed the most interesting him and kind of the only team we have outwardly saying they're ready to make an offer the lesson. The nationals may never with September right before the season. And and that offer had a clear expiration date that by the time the GM meetings came around in early November. They already off the table once he hit free agency. So the only other offer other attention of an offer that we know about is from Philadelphia. So it's hard to really say right now, they'll go anywhere else. But of course, there are there are ways in the markets, you know, soft enough, or if prices willing to take again, like a low a few years, and then high API deal is men that like LA expressed interest in doing then maybe this tilts another way. But for the most part, I think yes, it's Philadelphia's to lose right now. Yeah, I think so I think that makes sense to me and just coming from a non nationals fan. You know? He's done. No reason to go back to nationals. It's not like the nationals have one World Series. Or made big runs like the dodgers recently where they'd been in at least they've been kind of underperforming team underwhelming team. Even if you want to say that when it comes to looking at the roster and everything like that. And he's a Boris guy. Which means he's gonna want big money and the years might be thrown in there. I mean, JD Martinez going to set that new oh to have a bunch of player options kind of like a transfer deal as well where a ton of player options there, and you can figure it out after that. And then opt out then whatever but Harper Gwen swinging the bat, well when healthy like all sincerity the top five player in baseball. And I think everyone knows that and his market has shrunk much autos house has as well Machado shrunk because of his comments and his play going into the World Series. You know, his on field antics is all feel comments and just his inability to be consistent where I think Harper's was just because it was such an astronomical amount of money. And they were like, well, if we're going to wait it out and have man, he's not gonna get signed. And we'll just wait until we got time. So I think it is a Phillies to lose makes sense to me Billy. A pretty complete team right now. They got a good pitching staff. They got a good lineup. He makes the lineup. Great and Washington. I don't know if it's a hot take. But they don't really need them. I think I don't know. I mean, you're you you are the Washington guy. But, you know, do you think you actually need Bryce Harper to have success with his team? It's it's so interesting, you say that because they've done a lot this offseason that has put themselves in position to sort of survive or and I don't wanna rhyme here, but survive or even thrive without him. But the, but what they sort of need is the middle of a lineup pop, and like you sort of get it O'Brien dosier, but he's coming off this like weird injury and season that was supposedly marred by this Bom brews, and and you're not really know what you're going to get with him. And then other than that like they were no one's twenty five home run guy if he's going to stay healthy for a whole season. But but what they what they are lacking. Is that middle of the order presence and in the big left handed bat and. It's it's interesting to me that like they are in this position where yeah, they probably can be a pretty good baseball team and a contender without him. But he's also like the perfect missing piece for the lineup. So yeah, you you have to have power gap. But it's almost like, yeah. Harper's that guy. But man, if there's one guy steps off of Soto turns into that role. Right. And so it's like, oh, man. We're we're golden right? Yeah. That's the thing with soda. It's like I'm kind of assuming he's not going to be what he was last year. But if he is then get actually are very fine. The analysts has actually been extremely active in terms of markets trades free agent everybody except for the Miami Marlins. Who of course are waiting to trade, detour Mito. But one of the first moves the entire off season was actually the nationals trading for catcher Yang, gums and signing Kurt sukey. What's the catching situation? Like, I think it's gonna be k- today by feel like I imagine that Kurt Zukis going to catch NFL Sanchez given their relationship going back to last year. Annabel sorta revived his career with Atlanta with Kirk catching him other than that. I don't see any outward indications of who will catch who or who will catch win. But I do think that the nationals got clear upgrade from. What was last year was Matt leaders patriot Severino in Spencer keyboard in offensively. And. Probably you're going to see young catch more games coming off an all star season, Kurt Suzuki's, thirty five. But but Kirsten off a good season as well. So it won't be an even split. I could see like Yang catching one hundred games Suzuki catching sixty whatever may be barring any injuries for either of them. But I don't think there's any set plan. The fact that both guys righties means there's no obvious platoon. So more be Dave Martinez feel I'm sure guys hot override them. Switch off on Sundays sort of your typical thing. Just the fact that you have two guys who were who can start and catch all eating. So it's it's definitely the situation for them. No. It's a great situation with them. It's something that they lacked last year. Like, you said Yang Gomez is that you know, stereotypical. He's like, you know, a grand alway can hit some pop. You know is he the best overall catching league? No. But does Kenny hit. Yeah. You can definitely hit and curse. Zouqi? Having a good year veteran presence, and maybe he works well with they surger or an older guy in maybe young looks better with a little bit young. The group and is really nothing wrong with that when it comes down to picking and choosing who works better. I mean, you see it throughout the league now, and you'll be seeing more and more another kind of tandem pair. But not really as first base yet. Ryan Zimmerman Mr. be there, Mr. net we love Ryan. We're big Ryan where big Zimmerman guys, you know, he's been one of the better players in baseball for years. You know, he's not a three hundred thirty guy every year, but he's just so good, so solid. And even as like thirty four years old, he still crushing it another older guy. You got there as mad atoms you signed to send to that. Nice deal for next year Zimmerman's gonna get most of the games is not all of them where does Matt Adams fit into that. Because I feel like he is the bigger question Mark than what Zimmerman is. Yeah. I mean, I think ideally you want to play one hundred twenty games through the nationals. I don't want to overuse them just because he is older and he's been really banged up. But. He's he's like you guys say extremely productive when he plays. And he he's a guy you can get twenty home runs and you start to fill in that Bryce power gap with him. If he is healthy, even if he's not in the last year, he had thirteen and eighty five games. He has that he has that ability to maximize somewhat limited at bats. But with Adams, I mean, obviously, the Nazi him as their their first option for leaking pinch-hitter easily easily lefty, and I don't I don't think it's going to be any sort of. I don't think you indicated this, but it's not any sort of platoon. It's more of just kill spells when he can and they're going to want to get him as many at bats as they can with you know, within Zimmerman scheduled just so he is ready in prime to be a pinch hitter in big spots and used to that role. It's not like he's he played it pretty well last year for the nationals. He's another guy who could really get up twenty home runs. If he gets certain number of at bats because he has all that pop. But I do think his his role really is just a pinch hitter and spot starter. And then, but if Zimmerman does, you know, miss two weeks or mystery weeks, which he has become very prone to do. The latter half his career you have a pretty good option Adams. So I I think it's again, that's another signing. Like, you say great value on that contract. And and he's definitely in off the bench guy that that gives them some flexibility. So he started in two thousand five win to the nationals move back as even here every year this organization. Yeah. Yeah. He was coming. They just bounce them around positions. Really for awhile believe. Yeah. Keep them in their first. But he's he span the whole time and he played he only played he didn't play a lot in that first year. I'm pretty sure and don't don't quote me on this as we're quoting. But in the post, I think he was the first draft pick after they became the nationals again pick also would double down on that. And believe he wasn't. So now, we're we're both being now. Now, we're both getting quoted we can get Grohl freezing cold takes in here. And you're because it's such a big thing right thing. It's a huge thing. He has spanned the entire DC. He's he's this kind of one constant from the terrible years to what's now been, you know, pretty good competition for the last nine or so years. Yeah. It's been you guys have been competitive pretty much every year, and right there, I guess minus this year, you weren't you kind of floating around five hundred but it was trending down. We all kind of you know, every kind of knew it from the outside looking in. But you know, that makes no sense with Adams's ruin their Adams is going to find his went to lineup another guy that when he is healthy man is he productive with the bat and would definitely help with the power of it. But Kenny stay healthy. And can you bounce back from weird year? Second base is going to be Brian dosier is pretty much every game. But is he going to play all those games healthwise? And do you think he's gonna get back to baton to sixty? But thirty forty home runs. I haven't that's what the nationals are banking on. I think he's he's betting on himself too. If he was really banged up and really thought he was going to start turning down. I imagine he would have aggressively sought out a two three year deal. And the indications I've gotten from that is that he actually was given, you know, lower lower salary for some some shorter term stability, and he and he said, no, I can go and better myself in in DC and and hearing about his personality from some people who have covered him or being around him. I I've won his nature. He sort of has this chip on his shoulder something to prove. But at the same time, I think that's a decent indication for the nationals that he's feeling like he can be healthy this year. And the bet knee is not going to be a lingering issue. So yeah, I mean, I think he'll play a lot. And they don't have. I think in this case if the bench days what it is right now how he Kendra it becomes more of a corner outfielder for you in a right handed bat, and then when we're defo's the guy who's going to kind of play behind dosier at second. Of course, Kendrick could play second half, they need him too. But I could even see dosier moving over to play. Some I insert in some lineups. If. Wherever to go out. But, but yeah, I think he's you know, what he is. When he's healthy. He hasn't shown aside from last year with that kind of like we said weird injury that he's anything, but so right now. Yeah, I think he can be that for this team. And depending on where he it's in the order he could be in a spot to see a lot of pitches. And and it it seems like a good fit. So I guess we'll see how that plays out. But it's a huge key to the season for the nationals. So before we go to short we have to talk about kind of the future of the infield. Here you have trade Turner at short. But you also have carte Akiba down there. Obviously not ready yet. Where's Carter gonna fit is? He gonna play second base in the future. Is it? More of a you know, third base option. What's going on with him? Yeah. Right now, it's it's it's looking like second, especially with signed dosier that one year deal. The nationals had interesting guys like DIGI LeMay who but didn't want to go after them because I think having to commit more time, you know, what kind of blocked spent I say Spencer's brother would. A blocked Carter a little bit more to the future. So he's being developed new a second baseman this off season. He played it in Arizona folly. He's probably gonna play in the minors. I think they're going to keep him at shortstop a good amount of the time as well. I think just the skills you developed there. It's a little more of a diverse position when it comes to fielding, and he also has a pretty big history of playing third base in high school. So I think depending on what happened with Anthony or unknown. Obviously. Then that's when we'll work that out, and we can talk about it. But I think he's the kind of guy who could play any of those three spots in the future right now. It's looking like second with dosier one year deal, and he can get he can get a shot there, especially with him likely coming up as September call up maybe earlier if there are injuries this season, but he's definitely been slanted at second right now, you know, one of the trades that happened a couple years ago at this point that involved a lot of names that if we look at today, and we're like, wow. That kind of made more of an impact than we thought. It was going to at the time. This trade Turner deal the three way from San Diego is kind of insane. I mean can Rosenthal said he's that's probably have picked on San Diego because they got all their. The clear winner is actually the quote trays a guy that's gonna play all one hundred sixty two games. Phenomenal at shortstop. When you have nineteen Homer pop, and you steal as many bags. You did. I mean, top five and steals the last three years. What does he mean to the steam? I mean, Trey Turner is just a fiend. Honestly. Yeah. And I think he's because of Harper Renzo in last year. Soto I think trae kind of gets buried a little bit after the conversation for the nationals, and everyone's very keen on sort of painting rundown is the most underrated star baseball has. I'm not going to say that's trae yet. I don't think he's ascended to that. But he's he's probably one of the most underrated. Like, you said like pieces teams that I mean, he just isn't isn't come up three more years of team control with him. And and I think he would have told you, and I wrote this this off season that he was pretty bummed about his stolen base or last year. Just because he thought he he didn't see the ball. Well, he didn't. Displayed approach didn't lead himself to other walks. Like, he's he wants to steal fifty sixty bases. And he thought he kind of short change himself by not getting on base enough. And he's realizing now that he thinks he has a swing early and counts because you know, teams are teams are going to come Adam. But then he's like I kind of realized late in the yearly they actually stay away from my bat too. So he's pretty lethal in that sense that when you have that nine hundred home pop like you said they're going to stay away from you for that reason. But then in doing that walk you put you on and pretty much give you a double because he can. Right. So it's he's so versatile in that way. And I think just the recognition of knowing that teams actually might pitch around him a bit and reacting to that. Instead of chasing a first pitch fastball and popping alleys actually going to have more repayment approach, and that could that could have a big affect and. Yeah, I mean, he's he's huge for this franchise right now he could be a future leadoff hitter. A lot of different things and pairing him with his victory was the top of the order like it's possibilities. That are pretty limitless. I mean, I can only think of one faster team in baseball. And that's the royals adding Billy Hamilton and getting Taryn score back and having with Maryville Turner reminds me field a lot not not necessarily the place though. I mean, they both deal out of bags just the under appreciation that they have around the league. No, I can see that. And also like you mentioned and not to knock, wait. But that speed on that team. You just said it's kind of just speed, right? Right. Where not not with not with the other gore and guys like, right? Right. And the national speed is like pretty versatile speed. It's like, you know, it's like I call them joking like a four and a half to a player. And maybe I don't think he's five, but they're kind of selling them that way. And trae is close to a to. I mean, just the way he with the way he plays. So it's it's pretty impressive. And yeah, I don't think his value to the nationals can be understated. Yes. I mean, we can move over to third base. I mean, I'm from Texas. So anybody anytime that I see a guy from rice performing Xs forever. Yes, can imitate is his making eighteen million upcoming free agent next year. This is a three hundred hitter guy that is top five in doubles most of his career. It seems like this feel like he's been in the league for about twenty five years now. And it hasn't nearly been that long, you know, six four player. I mean, there's not many six four players in baseball top five. There may Anthony Don does it all in does not get nearly the appreciation that he should for being is good as he is. Yeah. I mean last three years he's the seventh. The league in more and Harper's thirty fourth. Like, you know, it's gonna greasy right? Like, yeah. Next in the field. Right. It's almost like you'd expect this time next year. We'll have this like major Anthony sweepstakes, spilling. We're not going to just think of how he's just because of how he's viewed and up next year. So right, either he'll be he'll be looked at like moussaka says this year, he'll be like consolation prize, which isn't isn't right now. But that's also if the biggest question with him going into the season is that the nationals need to resign them, especially if or signing into an extension, especially if prices going elsewhere because that's kind of your guy now that you're middle the order piece. I mean, he said fourth behind Bryce for awhile now, but he becomes he becomes immeasurably important if prices on this roster, and I may I argue he's important either way. But in Rondo, and you have a guy who stated that he wants to stay. He wants to sign that extension. I think he's the kind of personality that like, you know, in spite of being Scott Boras client could be like Stephen Strasburg and go early and do it touring the season just because he. Likes that comfortably like sort of his life in DC, and and sort of what are the Ford Sam in this family? So yeah, I mean one you can't you can't really say enough how sort of underplayed his his status in the league. And you also can't say enough how much this Nash nationals will need to deal with his future. Once this dress in this price stuff shakes out the guy's only twenty eight years old. And like Austin said it feels like he was forever, but he makes just under nineteen million his market values. Only I say only because it's baseball. But only twenty five million is you can get anti run don't on a five six seven year deal. Twenty five million a year. I pretty much steel he'll be twenty nine get him on a five year deal. He's planning to what thirty five years old at twenty five million a year. That's pretty great. No. I think you're right. I think I think at the beginning of this off season. The big question was nationals could have both those guys on the state payroll in the event that Bryce did come back. And I think it's I I think they could be I don't think what dome gets on his long term deal is going to be that much higher than his what he's getting this year. Xavi isn't gonna like shatter. No, no. It's only gonna go up. It's gonna go slightly. He's not gonna go from eighteen to thirty eight. Right. So in terms like this year, like the nationals way, I have a twelve million dollar cushion to the to the competitive balance tax, and you know, if Bryce pricing back day go over that. But like it's pretty much the same thing. So it'd be really interesting both these guys with the national. But if not, you know, I think you are going to get a pretty good value on renewing. So we're talking about all these young players, you know, and I want to talk about one other prospect. Nationals number three prospect of Luis Garcia. He is a little bit further away than the other guys that we've talked about I know a look far look ahead. But kind of what is Luis Garcia going to be or would the nationals. Hope he will be. So he's he's being developed. They're pretty much keeping him in Carter in lockstep. And I think the reason for that is when they can sort of work together when they are in the same same field, or whatever it may be at the same level which won't be a start the season. But whether it's spring training and whatnot. And then to is just giving them a lot of flexibility. You don't know what let's say, you know, this year, they try and make a big Ron and they wanna get norm at the deadline. They trade one of those guys or something like, it's they so the fact that they're going to develop both Louise and Carter into second basement is significant in that they don't really know who's going to be that guy right now, it seems like Carter just so much can happen. And and also Microsoft last year with Ron Soto he's really not shy about calling up nineteen. If they're playing well enough. He's one of the gyms that you know, to his credit doesn't really meddle in that service times. In that whole conundrum. He just he kinda just brings up whoever's the best fit at the time. And I, but, but yeah, of course, to me just looking at them, and this is total conjecture like he slots a little better if he was going to move off shortstop as a third baseman because he's he's a bigger build already. But he's he's a good shortstop all reports from from his his progress so far is that he's he's a strong defensive shortstop. And and and that natural move to second shouldn't be that hard for him. And I think he's other guy that has a lot of versatile. They can play lot from places for them. Yeah. That guys. I mean, he's he's another guy that even if say he comes up and beat the third basement by the time, he gets up Zimmer might be long gone. So you could move around don't over a I kind of you know, if he signs that big and instead extension you want to protect your investment there and third base beat you up after a while. So I mean, you guys have a lot of trae Turner's in the system, and I mean athletes because we'll jump to the outfield considering the two of them there with robe lease. And Soto I'm you guys have phenomenal athletes out there and the way that I see it opening day wise, I think it's gonna be eaten Soto and Michael Taylor solely because I think robe lease. They might start in the minors. They might try and get them in there. But you know, maybe a contract thing or or something or it's simply going to be eaten raw blaze. Soto. I think it's one of the four of them. I think Michael Taylor's an amazing player. And I think that having him be on the team. He's only twenty seven years old, you know, under eighteen. A couple years and he's just a solid player. He bats to seventy two thirty leaky bounces back and forth there. But when he's not batting maybe the best average he's still walking a little bit. He's still great fielder. And I think he's just a good glue guy. I know he's not like the Soto and the Harper and all them, but you need a fourth outfielder that's going to be able to play defensively maybe replacement. So that's why Michael Michael Taylor will be good in center there. But if we're always is ready. He's going to go. Yeah. I think all you said about Taylor's true. I mean, obviously he has to make a big rebound at the play. Yeah. Thirty Lascaux wasn't great. Yeah. And he he at one eighty in September in August. And it was just he he struggled a lot. And I know they're making tweaks he's working with the hidden coach a lot in the off season. But the biggest thing there is like whether or not. One of the other starts opening day. And Senator let's say an non Bryce world. But it's I do think it's important to say like they they are confident in Taylor to the point that bliss, even if he was the opening day starter, he's not going to be the full time starter that's important to them especially coming off a year in which he didn't play for most of it because of injury. And I just think they're not gonna wanna put too much on his plate right away. So he might be sort of the starting there in the in the league guy and Senator I would guess he is with the roster. They have right now. But I would I would I would think that Michael Taylor maybe makes to starts week and really isn't a mix there. And again, like kind of what is it about Matt Adams the nationals kind of seen that Michael Taylor? It doesn't really do. Well in a pinch hitting role. He's not going to be called upon the pinch. It that much because they like to bring them in for eating late games for defensive assurance. So it's it's not like he's going to be a guy who's like pinch hitting in the six or seven in bigger spots. But at the same time getting him as many bad about at bats as possible early in the season when you're still easing robots in. Can only have a good impact on season moving moving beyond that. So I expect to be regularly in the mix not just buried in the bench. That's for sure. What what can we expect that a soda this season? Do you think he kinda regresses a little bit? Or you know, just having the amount of tape that they do on him now. Or is he gonna come back and have another great year so hard with him because as you don't wanna right, and you don't want to say too much about a guy that age, but like his I last year and his plate discipline and his his to strike approach was like so beyond a nineteen year old. It's like it's hard to imagine him getting so rattled by king. You know, wherever he gets pounded by backtra curve balls. Like, I I could see him his walks could like just sore. It's kind of what you saw what Brice when he got stabbed even his numbers and his nineteen year old season comparative prices when Bryson rookie of the year, we're just so much better in terms of your walk rate in strikeout rate and all that. So I expect him to digress. A bit just because that was. Historically, good season. It's hard to match that. But I don't I don't think it's going to be like he's gonna really fall off in in terms of him getting picked apart by pitchers and scouring reports because I think he showed the ability already to adjust. I mean, the hitting coach come along nationals hitting coach said that so many players so many veterans last year had adjusted their to strike approach because they had watched Soto hit which is like so crazy to think about for nineteen year old. So he seems as a quip is anybody to handle what's going to come into next. I think he's going to walk a ton. I think he already did last year. And I think maybe his power numbers go down as a result of just not seeing as many fastballs. I mean when he first came up they were just throwing him all these fastballs. And it was like this guy. Crushes fastballs, obviously does not do not throw many more fastball. And it seemed like the league was so slow to react. But now they're going to have the book on him. Like you said. But I I think it'll be all right. All right. So we're going to jump to the starting pitching. They're the lot of money invested in this rotation really tightly there is you. I want you think one of my favorite stats when we're talking about contracts is I love to remind people that Stephen Strasburg makes forty five million in twenty twenty three in the all look at me, like a map -solutely just stupid. I'm like, no, go go check. Nobody really does. You know? He he really does the starting pitching sixty two million dollars invested it currently, by the way, she sees. But I mean, this you have like this year. Great arms. I mean, if you I mean, Strasberg's one of those guys where if you could turn off injuries. He's a top five pitcher, you know. I mean this rotation one through three is one of the best in the league. But one of the most underrating underrated sightings, so far the offseason is honorable Sanchez. Add not only do you take somebody away from the Braves. But you also get a guy who had a pretty busy resurgence last year. Yeah, I think I think you're right. I think the the riskiest part of the animal Sanchez signing is that you essentially traded traded them for Joe Ross in the sense of like, that's what you put in his spot and not your raw. Sorry, tenor. Ark. And. I'm getting my. Pictures already mixed up inside spring training. You kinda guy traded spas for Tanner, Roark and Rourke was such a workhorse. And like, yes, it what you want about historic last year, and it was bad all kinds of bad. But he averaged thirty three starts year for the past four or five years. So that's such a valuable thing where Sanchez is kind of the opposite. He was he was really good last year. He was door will last year. But you can't really rely on him makes thirty plus starts in that fourth fifth guy linked. It's kind of what you need some extent. Especially with all the injuries. They've had two guys like Strasbourg. And and you know, in in corbin's kind of over the years hasn't been as durable as a guy like sherzer. But yes Sanchez last year. I mean, he was excellent. And he's he's mixing six pitches. Which which makes me just makes my brain hurt just thinking about it. Detroit ways at this point. Yeah. Yeah. And he's he's totally reinvented themselves, and it's pretty cool to see. And and like, I said earlier working with Kurt Suzuki. Last year was good for him. He had a great record and starts occur. I don't know it off the top of my head. But the fact that the guy who was credited with a lot of the resurgence in Atlanta is now on the nationals bench. I don't think is a coincidence. And I also don't think is is gonna is kind of something that's going to really be given. That's because he was really comfortable with Kurt and they weren't through a lot of that adjustments together. So I think you'll see more of that. And it's it's it's a pretty good situation for a four starter six years one hundred forty million for Patrick Corbin kind of out of left field. Honestly, like just out of nowhere that wasn't a name that I was thinking that he was even thinking about as a Red Sox fan, David. I just automatically assume that he was going to be a Yankee and had come to terms with that one. But when the Antes didn't want to give him that sixth year mean at the end of the day money talks, and I think that he adds just a whole nother element. Because that's lighter is is probably one of if not top three in baseball. Yeah. And I think they'll that sixty year. And also just the as you on it like nationals did overpay. And they asked to see you always over. Right. And in this case like they just they knew how much the Yankees wanted them because hometown guy that was sort of the buzz, but they also say we can get to the point where the Yankees don't want. Invest this much. And I think that was. I think that was that was it sort of shows sort of win now mode. I don't think obviously the nationals and anyone signing a picture like this isn't signing him for years four five and six in this case, they're just hoping for an excellent, hopefully, maybe even like Cy Young level one-two-three, you know, when, you know, top five Cy Young voting or whatever it is. That's kind of what you're paying for. So. Yeah, I mean, it's it's a it's a huge investment. And it's kind of the time is now for that to pay off just with some of the guys that are still in the team in the rotation that he's an so we'll see how that works out. It's going to be the biggest one of the biggest storylines of national season. Just is that investment worth it and and him along and Strasbourg health and his fastball velocity. You're kind of two major keys because this is a team. Now that's without Bryce if they go on without him is really investing and starting pitching and winning close games and winning by one run the something they were terrible last year. So it's it's gonna be really interesting to see. So who's the fifth starter? We talk in Joe Ross. Yeah. I mean, that's why if I was. If I was betting on it, which I'm certainly not I would say Joe Ross is your starter the other options, there's Eric Feddie. Who was who's? Okay. Last year. It was out for a lot of the season with shoulder inflammation. And then you have a guy like Henderson Alvarez who. Who is is coming on a minor league deal? And if he's somewhat would he was early in his career, he could really surprise them and get some starts. But I think he's more like a dead guy kinda like they had with Tommy Malone. Jeremy Alex last year, but it, but then again, like those guys were parts of in the rotation for for major parts of the season because the nationals I think they had nine guys three or more starts it's eight or nine, and you know, we're we're talking now late January. I think there still could be a few signings like that one year. Low value veteran like Alex Malone. Just we were giving yourself the assurance to have those guys who could made spot starts. But it's it's failure. Ross I'd say Ross just with the experience, and I think Feddie could really benefit from getting some time down in the minors and working on his stuff and his command. But but but he's he's flashed being really good as well. So we'll we'll see how that plays out. But yet Ross is a front runner there. I'd imagine. So the starting pitching is your strongest suit in the team. Obviously the lineups. Great. It's pretty much set minus a little few question marks here and a little tweaks who's gonna start where you're starting pitching is one of the best top three in the National League. If not all baseball, the weakest point of the team from an outside perspective and just a baseball fan. Generalship bullpen you guys start selling off last year, which we talked about before in podcasts that you guys. I feel though you should have sold even more. 'cause you could always, you know, you could always recover free agency again, but you have no clear-cut closer, you have a closer that in a relievers lash closer that came back off Tommy John who you signed to a one year try deal with a club option and Rosenthal. You Sean do little who I love when he's healthy and he's banged up this year, but he's a really good seven eight in a guy after that use some interesting names, you've Sammy Solis you've Kalbarri claw, you've Glover as well who you know, had a little bit. Of a walk issue walking issue. But besides that was pretty decent in his sixteen twenty innings the small sample size. Do you guys? Go get another. You know, bullpen piece is like a Ryan Madson gonna come back or something like that. Or you know, is it going to be a seven eight nine Doolittle Rosenthal. And you know, just try it. I think it's going to be. I'd imagine the nationals like do it wasn't a closer last year. He had all star numbers before he got hurt midseason with a toe injury that of just lingered for way too long and. And then beyond that, they sort of have if Rosenthal comes back to something close to what he was back to back forty save seasons early in his career. They kind of have righty and lefty options for the ninth. I do think do it all went on your rest. We'll get the first crack most nights until further notice. But they also do have that versatility. Like, I said of having two different options. And if it was three, right? He's coming up to you, maybe slide Rosenthal in if he's rested. And then from there, it's where it's where that's where it comes Alabama. Think could've Glover has stuff to prove. You miss a lot of last year with a shoulder injury that kept him out until August. And then I think there's there's other guys like you said call bear call. You're not sure what he is. I see a more middle relief option right now. Instead of set up man Macara's was good last year sort of a matchup lefty, you could also throw winning. But yeah, the bullpens thinner and and a lot of question marks. I think I think you're right in there like Sammy Sali's really bad year last year, and it has to come improve a lot in can't even think get spies out of options. But I could see them just putting him on waivers out the camp spring training. If you know if he's not a he's opt to par. So yeah, the bullpens the biggest question Mark for sure I don't think they're going to go out and do anything big from now until the season starts, they may sm- smaller signing Miley deal for down. You know, that you know, could could pay dividends if he comes in good shape, and he could be kind of a low man or a lefty if he's pitching, well and lefty specialist, but yeah, I think it's. Ninth right now do it on eighth. Some kind of combination of Rosenfeld Glover in seventh is some kind of nation of Rosenthal Glover bear, call grace. It's but like you said, it's it's not still clear cut. And that's that's kind of one of the that's probably the biggest question, Mark. And then in turn it make that kind of the biggest storyline. Terms of with this team can really compete this year, given the strength the rest of the roster. Yeah. That makes sense to me. I mean, if for so one thing one last thing, I come on go over with this team because it's an interesting bunch. Is there any prospects that stand out to you besides the three, you know, being Garcia key, boom and robots that we've already talked about in the system, they're easy. Anybody that's kind of off the charts. And that's this mean, that's I think again, another another sort of key with this team a theme that who's that next guy. 'cause in some ways you can say that would have been soda here. You know, it would have been robust this year. But they're just exhilarated because those guys have shown that they deserve a shot earlier than most players would. So I wouldn't go as far to say that the system is really thin because. Sotos prospect age just playing really well and earned his spot up in the big leagues. But yeah. After after that group, this young group right now, there isn't really anybody. That's standing out like, you know, we'll we'll crows is a pitcher that that could come up in the bullpen, and maybe get some opportunities or as a starter in James burkas, another guy the organization really likes, and is sort of grouping into being that next group that gets a chance. So there is there are some guys floating. But no one that sort of on the on the cusp of being that that major prospect where you kinda saw them burst onto the scene like like a soda or robe lesser, or or keep whom whatever it may be an and Garcias kinda like we talked about earlier, but he's that kind of waiting in the wings, just because he's younger. So I think he is next guy to sort of pick up steam if he has a good year this year, he'll start to really get a lot of attention, and like any prospect is named floated ten thousand trade rumors. So so that that will be something to look forward to. So I have one more question that is kind of the Washington sport theme. It seems Washington sports have a history of having a very good roster. Very good regular seasons. You look at the wizards in those years where they were competing, and they were in the east conference fine, the semi finals and all that you look at the Washington Capitals who finally broke through last year, but one presence trophies had hundred point seasons in the mid two thousand and yet the Redskins who have been pretty much a five hundred team, but obviously had some peaks with RG three before he blew out his knee and the nationals obviously made the playoffs for the first time Strasbourg when it had they shut down his innings limit. They've had Bryce Harper. Who's arguably a top three player in baseball? What does it take for this team to finally get over that hump? Like, the capitals did with is it that the spotlight won't be on them as much because Harper's not there is it management is it, you know, ownership is it. Bringing in veteran players. What makes them go from you know, basically, a good Rosser? But no one's really worried about them to finally turning some heads and saying, oh, these guys are the real deal. Yeah. I mean, I think that's a great point. And I think right now, you probably could say I saw Emily network special on the other day that nationals have won the off season. But that means literally nothing. Unless you win the season and win the division. Whatever it may be. I mean, first things first, and I it's a cliche, and I'm I somebody manager. Now health is a major factor, and that's most pressing with guys like Strasbourg and Zimmerman, but but it goes on down the roster last year affected pretty much everyone Saif, Mike Harper Turner, insures her in terms of key players. And then after that, it's it's getting hot the right time. It's like in a playoff series if you can get this team to a playoff series, and you don't want to go against this rotation. I mean, you kind of set the way they stack up in the National League. You don't wanna go against the only rotation nationally. You might fear more in that spot is the Mets or the dodgers depending on how Kershaw is this year. But you know, if you've shares her lined up for game one you really get chance to win that game in Strasbourg lost. He comes back to the super good chance to win that game in Corbin on down the line. Max is shown the ability to go on short rest. So this is such a dangerous playoff team. But like last year late in dangerous playoff team to they just they bottomed out so early so. So I think just getting hot the right time sustained success throughout the year. And and winning those close games last year. They were they were really go when they when they kind of dumped on teams in and just really pulled away early. But they didn't win a lot of one run games. And that's pope is going to come into play timely hitting is gonna come into play. I don't think this team's gonna play long ball last year. You saw most of the contending teams lot. Seems that the made a run, you know, we're we're using the home run to pretty much fuel their offense. And that's not really going to be this nationals teams MO. That's another interesting. So plot that they're kind of going against the grain of what modern baseball sort of telling us is a winning formula. But I think they have the tools to win. It's just kind of every year. There's all these variables that go into. What makes a a team tick in team can elevate from good to World Series, contender whatever it may be. And we're not going to really know if this team has that until probably July August, and then you'll kind of see the signs, and then it's all about just catching fire win. When you ain't you, and that's just how it will play out. All right, everybody. Welcome back. We have another episode of Chatters box with coal urban and Austin Hartsfield today, we are going over the top pitchers in the NFL east. I'm gonna start off today. We're gonna switch up a little bit. So my list is all different than the top five. I have an arm will mention at the end somebody for a I have a really good year. And then I have two guys sharing a single slot because they are on the same team. So number one Jake degrom the best pitcher in the National League. I know everyone's I know most people say sherzer it's mostly just because of the strike outs with him. He dominated strikeouts. Knowledge is to Graham gets a lot strikeouts. But he just keeps the ball in the ballpark, which is big and the do just nasty. He will strike out twelve game. He'll get thirteen out grumble outside row. He gets it done in so many different ways on a bad team where he knows he's not he might not get a win. I mean, Jake degrom was like a five hundred pitcher this year and won the Cy Young. And that's a mental too. Coles the pitcher help he'll chime in and tell you. It's not easy to go play for team. You know, you're gonna lose for anybody. That's ever played an organized sport before knows. Yeah. When you're teams at the bottom of the standings and leaderboards south to get up in the morning like you or you're playing for the patriots or something where you know. Wow. We good shot of winning every game. So that's why I had the Gromit one. Number two, no surprise there. It's Mad Max, max Scherzer unbelievable. If he was a few years younger or a little, you know, a little less, you know, miles on the arm. I'd say he played for another eighteen years. The guy is unbelievable strikes out close to three hundred pitches. A year has Ziara on the three absolutely filthy been doing at an age where people thought he would start to fall off with that big long contract when he left the Troy when Washington signed it, but he's just continuing to dominate and he's going to have another amazing year. Number three is Noah Syndergaard. He's gonna stay healthy this year. He's not gonna put in mouth disease. He's not going to hurt his oblique for one hundred years in a row. He's going to be. Be a legitimate. You know ace he won't be the ace of that team because he plays with Jake degrom. But he will be a top five pitcher in the league this year. He will get over two hundred strikeouts. Who pitch over two hundred innings and he joined dominate number four two players on the same team. And I wanted to just kinda put them together. Because Aaron Nola is going to have another amazing year. He had a breakout year this year, I think really put his name on the map. And I think he's gonna follow up with that a guy that I didn't think was going to have an amazing your last year with Jake Arrieta. I thought he was gonna kinda fall off. But he clearly didn't and he may have struggled in the second half little bit when he was still phenomenal. And I think he's going to kind of continue to do what he's been doing since he's kinda joined Chicago, which was be, you know, top half of the rotation pitcher. Now, I think the combination of Nola in area is going to be just filthy and number five it's a reliever the only reliever on this list. It's D as he came over in the trade from Seattle. Twenty four years old a ton of control. Roll almost broke the all time save records last year. He's gonna get an opportunity to pitch in New York because when they will win games, it will be by close margins and they will throw him out there. He met do not care about innings limits or guys getting hurt clearly have had a million guys in DL. They let them come back, and they mess it up. So they're gonna throw the guys out and he's going to get close to fifty plus again this year as long as the Mets cooperate with that. But every time he's out there as much watch TV and number six is our good friend Cole urban. I mean, the guy's nasty. He's put it in minor league pitcher of the year last year. He struck out Vlad junior twice. He's big. He's two hundred twenty pounds unless you look at MLB the shell Rotella on eight definitely not one eighty the guys in absolutely unit and his will to work is higher than most people. So I'm looking for big things out alcohol Irvine this year, and he will be drafted in my fantasy league you can you can print that. How how are we supposed to Cole on this list when he has forty control? I'm not saying that's fake news. And I'm gonna I'm gonna go out there, and at re edit that, and I might report that picture I'm going to go into the rosters myself at that might be the picture for the episode. It's just cold is just Kohl's forty control. It should be with a bunch of question marks next to it. Because it's his it is fifty two bucks for nine. Even though he led all minor league baseball with it. But another reason why I think he's going to be great. And it goes along with that Philly rotation with coal at the four or five slot and Nolan area. The one in two dominant pitching staff. Yeah. I know. I know so awesome. What's your what's your five while we let Cole just fasten his glory here? Yeah. This is by Jack in the box, by the way. Dr not not not a sponsor. But could be a sponsor if they weren't as cold waiting for his lunch today out there out west. But member an I have two honorable mentions. One of us colts teammate, Vince Velazquez, I think he's going to have big year. But a guy that is my favorite pitcher in the entire probably NFL outside of Luke Weaver is Stephen Matt's. Stephen Matt's needs to get right. He needs to stay healthy. And if he can do that and get that sinker going I think Stephen Mets going to be a force to reckon with in that rotation especially when you're in a rotation with degrom Syndergaard Wheeler the list just keeps going on. But let's talk about door. You said it best. No hand foot and mouth dude throws gas books like a Nordic God. And I mean, what can you expect? That follows Jake degrom. He is an ace on pretty much any other two in baseball. I mean, I don't think we can debate that one outside of the bigwigs that have three aces in the rotation this. Yeah. Like, a Washington nationals or something, right? Washington boston. I mean pretty much about it, actually. Yeah. Very short list. I mean, Thor Thors number one on twenty eight other teams. I don't know if this is a big statement. I think Edwin d is is the best closer in baseball right now. The guide thrown out, right? And yet. Yeah. Closers come in spurts, like we we have to realize that. There was a stretch to where palpable on was the best. You know, we saw Eric gonyea do it for a long time. But right now, it's Edwin Diaz, you know, it's not Craig kimbrel. It's not anybody like that. It's a guy that NCI that had a lot of opportunities when it comes to saves save fifty seven games last year and just oh straight gas and can get you with Brigham stuff that just makes people swing out of their shoes. We we get to the top three. And it's just as is everywhere, man. I mean, you could honestly put these guys in any order you want. The three is Nola to assure Zor. One is degrom and Dave pretty much. Settle you need to know about those three main. I think Nola I actually thought about putting Nola higher than or this year. Just because I think that there's going to be I don't think max will be the Mad Max that we've seen from a couple of these years not that he's going to be bad. I just think Nola will be better than Shirley this year. I don't know if that's a big statement. Wow. That's I mean, I actually I don't I don't hate that about the Nola sherzer thing because if it surges aid trucks to show in Nola just continues to get better. You could see, you know, a little bit of a jump there for Nola. And I'm talking sherzer goes from like a top three pitching leaked without five. Right. Well maze. Nothing nothing. Crazy. Sherzer like his former teammate Justin Verlander. I mean. They've reinvented themselves over the years. Yeah. They have like David price did the same thing. You know, you see these guys that. Just used to blow people by now they're doing it with excellent breaking stuff in. It's pretty cool to watch. I agree with all all you guys. And appreciate the honorable mention. We do need to work on that forty control. And apparently everyone's got a problem with my sixteen bunt, and I have not missed an execution in my in my appearances where it had to sacrifice bunt. I have not missed a sacrifice yet. So that that stat is also skewed. People forget coal loves to hit like he's a loves to hate. He is he's never going to go to American League team. Like, the Red Sox won't give you three hundred million. But wasn't Mets. Wanna give me two? Fifty y'all take it. I wanna hit. I wanna. Believe it or not if I'm making a free agency hitting his definitely a factor. You heard it here. First man, we gotta we gotta we gotta get rid of the whole rule and just have everybody be D H so-called to Boston. But no, I again, appreciate the the honorable mention loved to be a part of. You know, the guys, you know, with what the fills this year, I'm going to be fun. But so my list is is obviously very comparable to to you guys. Couple honorable mentions. I want to start out with is damn straightly. There we go. That's that's a good one. You know? I think he needs to. He's kind of outta luck. Being with being with that Miami team. I just I just really hope that you know, he's he's the he's the ace of that stuff. You can say because of. Got no one else. I hate to say it that way. But, but we can't we can't this myth dance really is in Miami. And he's gonna give them an at least above average start every time he goes out. And and so I wanna make sure I start there. He's he's an absolute workhorse as well. And I know I love that phrase, but he's old school. Exactly. Yeah. He's very old school in his mentality. His approach. He just knows how to get hitters out and especially in in a pitcher's ballpark. You know like like Miami. But in a division. That's very offensive heavy. He's gotta find a way to get out get out too. So I wanna start there with that Arnold. Honorable mention saying it honorable mention I wanna I wanna say is going to be I wanna see where Jared I- coffin in Zach eflin trend to and and now with Patrick Corbin Cummins, then L east again, the analysts is an absolute powerhouse. When you're looking at who knows who knows what Harper Machado. My do. Who knows what kaikal or? Cam role. You know, where these guys are gonna sign, you know, we we don't know. So I mean, there's obviously players on the list that could end up in the NFL east and making that I mean, the the Braves I mean, there's there's so many quality arms on the on the Braves, and and how just like every day in the NFL as is going to be a dogfight. You're not gonna see I don't think I mean, you're gonna have your random random games unless you're planning in Miami. And I'm not trying to you know, you know, bash on Miami. But I just don't think they had ALI'S is going to have very many five run games with the elite pitching that. That is now now they're in that division analytics might play a part of it. But you know, I wanna say for for number one. You know, we kinda bounced around the max sherzer of Jacob degrom. I got. Nola. I think he's trending in just such a positive direction. He hasn't you know, even when he first got called up. I don't think he had any are over four. And he's just commands the ball. He knows how to get hitters out. He's got a league stuff, and he's just got a funky delivery. And I don't think he has a season. He's had a season yet where he's trending in the negative direction. You might have had a month or two. But I just think you know, he knows how to get out. He knows how to pitch in this division. And so I think he's he's he's my first sure number one for twenty nine team be ready for for what Nola has this year. Too bad backs. You you can't argue that is. One of the most elite pitchers in major league baseball. I mean, just his energy is demeanor on the mound. It's it's exciting. I it's just exciting to whenever you see Monday night baseball or Thursday will ever baseball. You're gonna watch. You can't not turn it on if masters or is on the mound. Like, how do you turn away from watching him pitch? 'cause you know, he's gonna bring so much emotion to the fight. And he's still exciting to watch at his age. So. So yeah, he's my number two for sure. Three or four five can kinda go anywhere. I I got DA's at three. But only based on what he did last year. I think he's going to have trouble coming into twenty nineteen figuring out the least I think it's gonna it's gonna be a different site. He's going to be dealing with the big noise in New York. I just I I, you know, I I hope he does. I hope he does. Well, but at the same time, I just don't see him trending very upward. Maybe until the later half the season where were they actually turned to him unconscious time and he's comfortable, but if they're expecting to contend, I don't expect them to really rely on the as as much as they're saying right now because he's wrong, he has a lack of experience and postseason games. And and I think they're going to he's he's going to he might have the. You know, the, oh, gosh, I am all over the place today. Sorry. Noodle. I know I'm just raining strays mush right now. I know Mariano Rivera fat were who's who's that guy? I think I think he's going to come in. They're not sure what they're going to get from them. Like, you know Marianas first year. You know up in the big leagues, you know. How quiet was he? I mean, you people listening rated. Yeah. No, people listening might not realize he was only a top ten prospect for the Yankees once and he was no nine that year. So listen guys and on his last year of his minorly deal if I'm not mistaken. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, he kinda it was one of things like man, this guy could be something. But we're going to wait and see and get close the end. Like, maybe this guy won't be what we hope turned out. He was the best closer full-time. But Colin close. Absolutely, right. Yeah. And so I think it's going to be the Mario affect with him. Don't know what they're going to get out of them coming to New York for the first time. He's gonna have his New York struggles. It's a big market not saying any of the markets in and Ali start aren't small it is it is the Mets though. It's it's let it, but it's the Mets. Yeah. It's the Mets. But I'm still saying he's still living. New york. Yeah. Outside things. It's not Seattle. It's not it's not the green trees. It's not the, you know. Hey, nice people good Cup of coffee around here quitted into Sonny gray ruin sunny grades career. And so that's kind of where I'm factor. My kind of. I guess expertise. You can say is kind of change of scenery might be good for him. But it could it could kinda hurt him in the in the front part of the season. So he's at three four. Ma'am. I it's hard. Not to have Jacob degrom at the top of the list about time hoping. So what the hell man won the Cy Young? But I just don't I think he's going to be is going to be good. He's not going to be what he was this past year of it was almost perfect. Honestly. Yeah. He wasn't always perfect. Right. Yeah. And I think it's not I'm not trying to say he's turning in the negative direction. He's going to be the of the staff he's going to be on top of you know, that rotation every day. He's the only get the ball. Maybe he figures it out, and and he continues his accessory last year. But you know, who knows there's a lot to kind of read into with the Jacob degrom when in the Cy Young, and and you know, he gets guys out, and he knows how to pitch you like his later starts last season. He was in the eighth inning seventh eighth inning. No-one admissible. Does that any? More why? Because of the analytics time, I'm very old school might think I think the pitcher should go as long as he can. And just because he gives up a hit in the eighth doesn't mean he's done. So I just think you know, he was just elite even in the late innings. And I I just think he's he's still trending in a positive direction. But I get I just he's not gonna produce what he produced last year. And that's why kinda put him at my four because I'm more interested to see interested. The see Shire's Nola. Have we leaned the right now of Jacob degrom? I think last year. Yeah. We did you think is going to have a do you think Noel is going to have a better year Graham? I think so I honestly believe so I just I just don't see with with again. I don't know both these guys personally, I don't know these guys any other way than just what they put on the field and. I just I just see Knowle's demeanor. Get better every time. He gets out more experiences. The more pitches. He has off the mound against elite hitting. You. I'd be interested to see the stats against the best teams in the league. And how they did against them, you know, in in their divisions or. Division, which is which helps I mean. Right. I mean, I don't think they have a one seven ERA in a one nine nine v. But I don't see him. I've I don't see them. I don't I don't see him sitting that two three. I see him at a two five to seven and. Our splitting hairs, but. Yeah, exactly. But that means you see no latitude two to three. Nola has opposed. I yeah. I honestly see him being out of two three to four. If not I love I think he's going to be under two five to six if at worst. So who's your number five is I have a pitcher that I have a question about the kind of discussing this. Number five. I'm interested to see a Nisa just pure. I wanna I wanna bring in a lefty here and Patrick. A I like carbon. And and I I like it for the nationals. You know, they got Strasbourg Shire's or Corbin at the top of that rotation. That's just. That's just disgusting down. But I will say. I'd like to see some production out of him. The analyst is very, you know, hitter hitter friendly, I guess you could say, you know, Diamondbacks to Coors to you have just trying to you know, factor in the fields and stuff, but you also had Dodger Stadium. That's a pitcher sparky. I've, you know, giants pitchers park, you know, and he still was around the four range in his ERA. And he kind of walked guys he had a high walk rate. I just I wanna see him have success in the east behind Strasbourg. And sherzer I think those two I think those who are going to pay dividends in terms of growth and development into what we can see from Corbin this year. So I'm interested to see how that pitching staff turns out. And that's just my honest opinion. I think Corman is actually benefiting from signing with the nationals and in that pitching staff. Well, yeah, it's always helpful. When you are the star of your team Henry time. Now, you don't have to be the star and some guys like to be the star, obviously. But with a guy like David price. He's done much better. Now that Chris sales been there, you know, and I think Nola who in Portola tube. And. You know? Corbin had a career year. Obviously he dropped his ERA by almost a whole point. And his his whip by almost half a point which are huge jumps. I dunno nosing going to be around three one five again close to it. You know, a to Yarra. But even if he's out like a three three three or four, you know, and does well in has, you know, two hundred fifty strikeouts. It's gonna be production and. You over pain free agency. Nobody should ever look at Patrick Corbin say he's the aces team. He needs have three or under your a three close to three hundred strikeouts. In over two hundred dollars every year. He might get paid like it. But he is not the ace of the squad. And I think he's going to benefit them to call. I think that him slotting in the three hole he will kind of the kind of protect him as well. Being like, listen, look at our three starter has two hundred innings pitched in a three two yard as an amazing. And it is or hey, he's our three starter. He's got a three five or three six. It's a new ballpark new team. Let them get adjusted. He'll be okay. And I think both things will help melt. All right. So three things first of all shutout. Tommy emailed sitting in division friend of the show. Yeah. Good guy could Gus spring training invite to so Cole. He did a little a little late one little snaky. They all count the same. Yeah. They all count the same baby. Second. We have I have a question about another guy in this division of nobody listed on their list. Probably because of actions last year. What do we think about Jose Urania? Impartial. Is it isn't that top ten in this division? No, probably not right. Not not yet. I mean, if he hasn't really good year makes that jump Shir. But literally, I mean, you could take the ground Mad Max or you could take you know, Strasbourg is better than him. Right. So Strasbourg Mad Max, you got the core. Bring you got to Graham Thorpe, you got D as you have even a guy like Stephen Matt's who's pretty consistent or no Wheeler was that Wheeler is better than Urano. So now I'd say no not yet. If he has another good year. Yeah. Maybe but not yet. I'm going to go into the whole like him throwing at a Kuna even before that. I didn't think he was there yet. He's one of the bright spots in Miami. But Miami doesn't have many rights pitching spots to really go off of anyway, so segues so. That's how you segue by saying the word segue while obviously how else would you do da? I thought you were talking about this little motorbikes. Now, that's a west coast in cool. Everyone's. Back out not a lot not a lot of Braves love. So I figured I'd at least bring up a guy that way. People listening know that the Braves actually have pitchers bread's good to baseball. What was going to baseball again? This all over again. Right. It is that they just can hit. That's like, that's they had some good kitchen have twenty two top thirty prospects or pitchers. Yeah. They have a lot of it is in the system and the one that I wanna talk about as Mike saroka. Like if we're gonna talk about a guy that could possibly win rookie of the year. And you know, we'll talk about rookie of the year candidate sometime within the next couple of months, but I think like Rocca's got to be in the top five this year. Just because I think Atlanta needs pitchers to step up this year, whether it be Tehran, whether it'd be full to Neville who'd Dave can't say his name Fulton avenue. I got it now. Yeah. So I mean, I think Mike Salk is going to be really good for this Braves team. If he gets the innings that he should. The podcast.

Where Does Your Governor Rank? | 11/5/19

"That not great is here on the blaze radio network. Welcome to Great Debbie with this triple eight nine hundred thirty three thousand three jampacked show again today. We've got a lot of trump tastic nece to share with you know trump tactic -tective trump. Okay I look forward to that I mean he's he's been in rare form lately and that saints something first of all the nationals already. Did Their White House visit. You believe that I mean it usually takes place. I don't know weeks or months months later. I guess they're probably all in town. You know yeah. Clean up their lockers for the season is just convenient. Probably and so we didn't hear any pre visit. I'm not going to talk to that guy. was there or some. Yeah I didn't hear any and there's a list of nine nationals. That didn't go. Yeah and some are more vocal than others but hasn't made too much news. No I completely missed missed it but the ones who went seem to have a really good time. Yeah that was fun In fact one of them even surprised trump by wearing a Maga half former brave rave. Kurt Suzuki here's what happened here. He he was the attack it. The man a few words Kurt Suzuki love. You all love you all thank you. And he's done got a big hug from the president. You should sure did that reminds me of Jackson Posta. I've seen around but that's what came to mind there. That's an awkward hug though. Trump is just so happy. Ah Yes somebody like. Boris figure exactly couldn't help himself so that's great also Longtime longtime advice columnist. Jean Carole filed a lawsuit against President Trump yesterday accusing him of defamation because he denied that he raped her. Okay so you're not allowed to defend yourself. Even you're not so much is allowed to say no. I didn't do that without it. Being defamation on the other person that is I mean. That's he's in. Maybe something like that goes forward forward after you're found guilty. Maybe but that is crazy. That's interesting hasn't even been. Judy created Ivan I get I came forward with the assault allegations in an excerpt from her book published by The New York magazine in June trump. Not only denied. We did it happened. He claimed he never met this person in my life and accused her of being motivated by trying to sell a book. No one not. Even the president is above of the law. She said while I can no longer hold donald trump accountable for assaulting me more than twenty years ago. I can hold them accountable for lying about it and I fully intend to do. So why didn't you say something about it. Twenty years ago it wasn't the president twenty years ago. Correct correct and it could have been prosecuted right years ago. I don't know man she's let me get this straight. Ms Carol is suing the president for defending offending himself against false allegations. I guess since the book didn't make any money she's trying to get paid in another way story. She used to try to sell her trash. Her trash book never happened period. According to Stephanie. Grisham White House press secretary. It is pretty ironic that you can't even defend yourself without a claims of defamation of character. That's that's crazy. I mean if this didn't happen the one being defamed famed is trump exactly. After she came forward with the rape allegation. The president issued a lengthy statement. Saying shame on those who make up false stories stories of assault trying to get people trying to get publicity for themselves or sell a book or carry out political agenda. People should pay dearly for such false allegations. I agree with that. Yeah I I subscribe to the theory that whatever the guilty party would have gotten if found guilty not Should if proven false should fall on the on the accuser Yeah so just another story. Sorry of somebody claiming heinous crimes against trump and eh another story. That happened decades ago. And there's no way too. How do you prove that now? You can't there's just no way to prove it one way or the other so good luck with that. That just goes to show that when it Happens say something about it. Go to the hospital and get some DNA proof about it twenty years later of course people are going to say okay. You're just doing that for politics. You're doing that to sell a book. That's it's going to be part of human nature to think. Why don't you do it at the beginning? Triple eight nine hundred thirty thirty three ninety-three also Alon Omar continues to amaze and delight. I think the entire nation Is She Omar tastic. She she really is okay and she. She continued the lie about Donald Trump. That it from Charlottesville. Here's what she had to say or not up. She was very picture picture. But it's not a talkie is what we have there. We don't hear her. I don't know if you guys are aware of that but But there which actually is. Yeah I mean that was a favor in the other room I mean it is the Alon Omar or maybe the equipment's just smart enough to try to protect shield us from that but hopefully we can get that correct up later. Yeah that would that would be. That would be terrific. It really would. It'd be fantastic. Yeah so she was at a a the Bernie Sanders Rally yesterday. Yeah we'll get into that as soon as I get that corrected in the meantime I wonder if the whole machine is just just as the machine Kerr put. Let's let's check it out with the Sean Hannity Done Junior discussion from last night. Imagine look at other media protects Joe Biden dough. Biden's on tape and a quid pro quo either. You fireman six hours. You're not getting the billion dollars that firearm you get two a billion dollars quid pro quo. Then you got. Do you know anything about Ukraine. Know anything about energy no oil gas note millions of dollars. Oh that was the guy that joe demanded to be fire. Imagine if that was your name was Hunter Biden except I wish my name was Hunter Biden. I could go abroad. Make millions of my father's presidency. I'd be a really rich guy. It would be incredible but because my name is trump if I took one point five dollars dollars from China not one point. Five billion like hunter but one point five dollars their heads would explode now. Hunter denies that he he received one point. Five billion although I think the figure is around three million right and I don't know that anybody's asked him about that. I don't know of anybody well. Did you receive three three million dollars from from them because he he completely categorically denies that he got a billion dollars now did did the company that he was a board member of a billion dollars. I don't know this thing is so tangled up and and nobody tells the truth. So who knows Glenda's Glenn tries every couple of weeks here on yes TV Yup and there's going to be another one next week to next. I think it's a week from tomorrow for tomorrow. Three of the series. And it's it's GonNa make your eyes bleed. It's really something. Triple eight nine hundred thirty three thousand three Then we have. Then we have the Trump video from the rally where he talks about out it talks about what Lou Dobbs said about him now Lou. Dobbs is pretty amazing in his love for this president. I mean seriously seriously he loves this president he and Sean Hannity should do a love off. Who loves trump more? A trump love love off. Because I I'm not sure who's the bigger supporter okay. It's GonNa be good but here's what president trump said about it The Great Lou Dobbs. I was watching the other night the Great Lou Dobbs and he said when trump took over president trump he used to say trump is a great president then he said trump is the greatest president since Ronald Reagan. Then he said then he said no trump. Is that even better president than Ronald Reagan. And now he's got me down as the greatest president the history of our country toting George Washington and Abraham like okay. Well now now the Great Lou Dobbs just getting ridiculous that is insane come on Lou. Dobbs TMZ says that this President Donald J trump is a better president than Abraham Lincoln or George Washington. Thomas Jefferson James. James Madison Alvin Cooler. Alvin Coolum on come on Lou come on a but he certainly. He has made a friend of the president. There's no doubt about that. I'd like to take the temperature trump temperature. Because are you with Lou Dobbs in that thinking in that way of thinking that this president is now the greatest president in the history of the country. Triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three. You could let us know it. Pat unleashed or twitter as well or if he's not or does he even better than is he better than Ronald Reagan. Yeah where would you rank this president On the list of great presidents triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety-three also I will. I will say one of the great things he has done. He actually fully and completely now officially has extracted us from the Paris. The court yeah. It started the wheels are emotion takes a full year to extract us but yes they are officially in motion. The extraction process has begun today. The United States began the process to withdraw from the Paris agreement per the terms of the agreement. The United States admitted formal notification of its withdrawal to the United United Nations. That withdrawal will take one year from delivery. That's how fantastic news begins in a statement from Secretary Secretary Critique of State Mike pompeo trump has hammered. The Paris accords relentlessly and with good reason mostly because they aren't climate climate accord's really but instead a big giant ball of punish America with the Nice coating of spread the wealth. Around around on it. This was not about fixing the climate because even Al Gore admitted. It doesn't do anything. Anything toward their goal of reducing reducing the temperature. I Dunno new two degrees one degree or keeping it from going forward agrees with for the deal is it doesn't do. It doesn't accomplish what they want. What they want to accomplish and Gore admitted it? I gotta find that in fact that is crazy and Dylan makes the point that he thought it was weird. US had to wait a year to withdraw from an agreement with no enforcement provisions This way at times times out right before the election in two thousand twenty so they can say hey. We are now officially out go vote. Yeah that's my theory. It's probably what they did here's what Gore had to say about the Paris Agreement if all one hundred ninety five nations on one hundred ninety four met their targets. It still wouldn't solve the problem. That is correct however powerful signal business and in Sidey and countries around the world the the thought that Iraq Halley elver ever does with it. What it does do is tell people that were willing to think about following the problem? One we're going. We're willing to consider it to sink about flank about it and to ponder about it and to one day perhaps perhaps actually do something about it. Why would we waste our time with that? I don't understand it. Why would you even waste your time on that whole mess would? It doesn't do anything and even the climate people admit it doesn't do anything and let me tell you about real estate agents. I Trust one thousand active agents all across this great nation of ours. If you're relocating you got to sell your house on one end by a house on the other you want somebody you can really trust To help you with this process because it's a really big and important one you don't Wanna I'm just wing it. Now go along probably not. It'll work itself out. What is the purchase whatever? Yeah that way you might find yourself with two house payments at the same time which could be troublesome for you so go to real estate agents. I trust and if you've ever been frustrated trying to buy or sell a home. I think you're gonNA find that this. Is it really pleasant. A really great experience. These agents have urgency. They share the sense of urgency with you. They return your phone calls. They have great marketing any plans and they have great track records. They really know what they're doing. They know your market they know how to price your home so that it will sell quickly and for the most money and if you're buying how to get the most for your money so go to real estate agents. I TRUST DOT com. Let us introduce you the best agent in your area real estate agents I trust trust DOT com. It's Pat Gray unleashed on the blades. It is that's true that's very true. This is kind of fun because Mark Zuckerberg has apparently worn out his welcome on both both sides of the aisle in Congress now so he's pissed off. Republicans longtime ago and. Now he's pissed off Democrats as well so. Nobody likes Mark Zuckerberg Berg anymore. Isn't that sad. That's just too bad. He's didn't exactly what he deserved. He needs and luckily he runs facebook. Where all kinds of Franken friend people are? How many friends how? Many people have followed Mark Zuckerberg. Oh Gosh I mean he should have the biggest following earthrights earthrights. You would think But there's bipartisan hostility. Against him now is been building for months. Fuelled by a series of privacy scandals. They don't care about your privacy the sites role in the Russian meddling in two thousand sixteen and accusation that that facebook crushes competitors now that really pisses Democrats off. If you're a business person isn't your goal to crush your competitors editors I think so I I you want to win and you want to win big say how many he has many followers our so has facebook changed friends to followers one hundred seventeen million two hundred sixty five thousand nine hundred thirty seven followers. It's a lot so hundred. Seventeen million. There's probably people with more than that right. Oh I'm sure yeah diesel or the rock somebody I am sure. Carrie underwood Taylor Swift K.. Vin Diesel. I don't know it's got a lot ninety. Seven million like like his page. I don't understand facebook. I'm not on it so you you don't even have a fishing bitch. I do not okay So with the twenty twenty elections approaching Democrats especially or homing in on the conduct of of facebook and their refusal to fact check political ads and remove false once again. That was illegal legal up until I don't know last year maybe a poodle now unless social media is something different. You can't can't edit political ads. Because how do we know what what your motivation is for one thing and if a candidate has something to say you should allow them to say that's freedom of speech and especially when you're running for office that's incredibly important. This is a rock solid bedrock American principal and they want him to remove ads. They don't like who gets to decide. Right what ads going. What don't obviously Mark Zuckerberg and his people? I don't trust them to do that so he used to have a pretty cozy relationship especially with the Obama Administration but now because he won't do some things they want him to do. They're all hacked off at him. His new strategy those personal blitz featuring serial private meetings in Washington with key lawmakers of both parties and and and president trump. He's also doing small off the record dinners at his California home with conservative journalists and opinion makers and the occasional Asian public address or TV interview. And I don't know maybe he talks about how he stole. This from the winkle Voss twins at Harvard Bird in these interviews. I don't know what I'd like to ask. I bet he's not friends with them either. I bet he's not I was just reading about the winkle Voss to it's I think I think they They went on to do a bunch of Bitcoin. They invested that early and now they're billionaires anyway so yeah it worked out okay for they got what sixty million dollars to go away. I think I remember. Yeah sixty five million and go away you guys guys and they. They did invested in Bitcoin with their money and it turned out. Okay I see this turned out okay. My goodness winners of life's lottery twice. Although the facebook thing being stolen from that wasn't a big win for them that was that was kind of weird and very reminiscent of the kinds of stuff that Bill Gates did bless his heart. Triple eight nine hundred thirty. Three Ninety three also add pat unleashed on twitter. We got this from Paul. Hey Pat and Keith. I wonder under if sugar bear of fended corn pop or was it off off to get a lot of those theme of sugar oft corn in pop. Yeah because it's a big deal Joe Biden's community there. We've found corn POPs head see in sugar bears freeze. That might be how it went down as we learned some disturbing stuff about sugar as many heads referred to him as a serial killer yesterday but again again. We don't know that he killed his girlfriend. Just cut her up just cut around you. Just cut her up. Big Difference there. Sure is art builders PA talking about a woman yesterday talking about a miscarriage just being mess on a Napkin. I say we start referring to anti ride life Democrats as just a mess at the podium. Not a bad idea. Yeah yeah feel free to tweet US after the show. If you you can't participate live between seven and nine. Am Eastern and you. Listen to the podcast time we still see your tweets. We try to keep up with them so these are from after the show yesterday. Right Proud Mr Greybeard tweets aunt. Becky could get up to forty years from California prosecutors while illegal. Aliens who murder people are being let let out and given free social services like the guy in San Francisco for instance. Yep but you know. He didn't know that that was a rifle ability. Picked it up. He didn't know what could happen with a rifle when he picked it up. And then it just suddenly discharged and Lo and behold somebody died and remember remember. What was that the? They argued that he never really possessed it. Yeah yeah he picked it up almost like NFL NFL rule that he really possessed the ball. The controlling the gun did the ground caused him to fumble the gun. All of these things were answered at the trial. So we know we know that. Calvin Johnson not responsible for that death and carrot. Thirty twenty two tweets could the crackdown on Lori Laughlin and her husband p because she's a conservative and she's a very vocal trump supporter and fascist. Hollywood now I didn't even know. She was a conservative. Is he say that. He is a vocal supporter. Says she she is 'cause Oh no he. Your husband is a very vocal supporter her. Listen to this. And she's conservative. I didn't I didn't realize that. Listen to this extreme view of of whatever. His name is must Muslim oh sure he's he's complained. oftentimes about the people who don't quote carry their own way in in what I ate a lot of takers full heat. Now they're entitled People Oh no. He agrees trump people need to carry their own weight. Eight my goodness well Kim to just for that belief lock him up locked him lock him. Yeah I didn't know Lori Loughlin. That's good news to will yes. That could have everything right everything it does here. I thought my my computer was a full house. Fannie it didn't like the way to show wrapped up theory was I mean that held water yesterday but this one definitely going to be a combination of the two. I'm not willing to let go of yesterday's theory. Thank you from Carolina. Boo Dog Boo dog. Turns daylight saving time killed more people than my. Ar are ten did this year. That's right. We learned some fun facts about daylight saving facts about how WHO's in that? Our Asleep in the spring causes heart attacks ax strokes all kinds of wrecks. People die the next day. By the droves what was then the hordes of people all the increase in hospital visits or visit boost. Twenty twenty five percents off. I think up twenty five percent and about adding Western candidate to the US. Oh yeah good plan Tim. L. Says Think about what you're saying you want a group of people that voted for Justin Trudeau to become part of the US and vote for President Senators and representatives. Yeah maybe not and we need to go the other way and give Canada our liberal states. Hey like make California part part of Canada. Yeah let's let's work at train. Yeah so we can. We can do this. Let's just give him the whole swath right down. The West Coast Washington Oregon California and becomes. Is there problem would not be yes boom and then we'll take like Alberta and some of those other western province catch one. I like it. It's a good plan. This could work. We get a nice place to go in the summertime to when it's a thousand degrees here we can go to a place where it's You know reasonable. That would be nice. It's a good idea really is can we explore this like how. What's our first official? Stay what do we have to do. Go to Congress. I think we need to put together an exploratory committee so to that right after the show do the exploratory committee triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety. Three Anti Pat unleashed on twitter. Twitter Eras are our president on on Hunter Biden talking about that whole mess clip clip number one trump junior. We played that. When you want to see do you WanNa see where am Paul at the whistle blower connections? We also now know the name of the whistle blower. Stop it for just a second. It does rand. Paul look like a Munchkin compared to president trump. They're a looks like a little puget or somehow they got uh-huh he's a step below. Can we get you do the freeze frame on that. Arn Not thank you. Yeah he gene. How of course trump is would six three maybe apart anyway? Here's what else. He had to say the whistle blower needs to come before Congress as a material witness because he worked for Joe Biden at the same time. Hundred Biden was getting money from from corrupt oligarchs. I say tonight to the media. Do your job and Well we always name right. We've talked about that. We know who the guy is. They suspect who it is. Yeah but we know he's a Democrat operative mean it's pretty conclusive conclusive proof that it's that. Cia Guy who was working with Biden was working with Obama. And of course he's he's a partisan hack and then we're supposed to just all bow down to what he had to say and who cares what he had to say. When we have the transcript you can just look at the transcript and see what was said? In that conversation you can talk to a President Zilenski from Ukraine. And ask him was. was there any undue pressure put on you know. He's already said that. I don't even know why we're still having this conversation. I think the more important information is that Donald trump is six three. Yeah Rand Paul is five foot eight. Well there. You go five eight Keith. Math says that's a full seven inches difference so he is a little compared to trump. Wow for three seven inches shorter as like over half a foot if my if my pat math is is corrupt pat. Math is always correct. It's dead on every time even math. I mean throw darts in hope. It's the right answer. So wow there there you go there. And he's a big big day they were rallying for Matt. Bevin Gun Kentucky. My goodness we've got some disturbing numbers to share later. Kentucky. Don't screw this up. You've got a great governor. Get out their vote for him. I Love Matt Bevin. Yeah we've known him for years. I think we go back to what two thousand eleven or two thousand twelve with Matt Bevin when he was running for Senate there and they missed a golden opportunity to elect him to the Senate and part of that. If you remember correctly was due to Rand Paul in his endorsement member that Yep Because well I mean there are theories abound but you know. Oh if you're trying to get on the ballot or two different office at the same time Kentucky you better know the guy in charge of that his name's Mitch McConnell now. I'm sure that had nothing to do with Keith Madame just throwing darts hoping I land on the right answer somehow topic more Pat Gray unleashed coming up great article from the Babylon be the headline Texas learning jobs away. I'm from California with promises of electricity. Those bastards awesome. What they're going to high tech Ghannam? Now that's what they're doing. New Billboards have been popping up in California with the slogan moved to Texas. We have electricity many. See this as a plate allure. Jobs away from California. As many jobs rely on electricity especially in the modern economy. This could be especially attractive to jobs in the tech sector. I think that's true. Roy Rivera a tech analyst with decades of experience and cutting edge technology explained that a quote a lot of tech uses electricity unkown. He then pointed to a chart showing the tech businesses can be at least three hundred percent more effective when they have power well at least three hundred percent more. Wow that's a lot. It seems like wow if you don't have electricity you don't you can't plug anything in. You're not going to be as effective as people who do have electricity against that. I can see where that could hamper business now. California Governor Gavin Newsom was dismissive of Texas claims. Though they're making false claims is being able to able to deliver electricity twenty four seven Newsom said but it just can't be done newsome was also dismissive. You've of the Lonestar states other claims such as affordable housing plenty of water cheap gas plastic straws and not constantly being on fire. It sounds made up said NEWSOM. I don't even think there is a Texas in California plans to fight back. It's now working on a wall to keep people in jobs for who leaving California. The planned wall should extend along the entire California. You're border except for the southern part. That is brilliant. Good people do you think so. Good what do we know how many people know we should look to. Because I'M A. I'm a huge fan. Yeah me too that really funny. Thank you for that. They were cheering for the Babylon be. I'm hoping that maybe that means the Alano Mar- Sound might be happening. Is that what it was. I haven't got confirmation but I hope so because I wrote something at the bottom of page two there. Yeah okay so yes okay. Page dump and from at least we got Rodney Ian Inva- tweeting. I think that president trump is doing a good job better than Ronald Reagan. Come on Lou the Steve forty-two you don't think trump is the greatest president ever. What are you GonNa do vote for Elizabeth? Warren that's all. Thank you for the shades of Twenty Tony.

Go Bye Week Bob Blah Blah. It's always a treat to not have to listen to Ilan Omar audio clips. Well it was but now I think we've got that too bad. You get that straightened out. Here is Ilan Omar the good stuff so good because that is only way we are going to defeat Donald trump and his school ideology in the spin of history. In what is it possible for. Second could you look up. The word. dissed been yeah. I'm GonNa do the view please because I would you spell that. DIS face.

All at New Sherry people right the best in the world in fact going back uh-huh why seem to hate this country more than poison. Why why are you staying? No I don't want to do that. Then Bernie Yeah Right. Socialism the seventy eight year old socialist with a bad heart. Yeah he's really prepared to do that. Good thank you. You know. It's not okay to keep perpetuating this lie about Donald Trump over and over and over and over and over these hypocrites would be revolting in the street. If we kept up an incendiary Li- like this about save their hero. Obama for instance. In fact fact look how they came unglued over the birthing. A lot of people thought that was true. A lot of people stuck to that and make no mistake. Obama Obama loved it and used it over and over and over and over again to discredit the right but if we never let go of the birther thirsted like they cannot let go of this this fallacy. This lie that trump said that the neo Nazis were very fine people people. Let's go back to the original comment and take them in their context. This is what he said about at Charlottesville about the situation when he was doing the press conference. People are peppering him with questions. He's he's already said look there were there. Were there. Were stuff going on. It was more complicated than that. I'm saying is this. You had a group on one side and you had a group on the other and they came at each other with clubs and it was vicious and it was and it was a horrible thing to watch because there were a bunch. AWW ANTIFA so the ANTIFA people were riling things up just like the neo. Nazis were but there is another the side they always a group on this side. You can call them the left. You've just called him. The left that came violently attacking the other group. So you can say what you walk. But that's the way it is so you said there was hatred violence blamed. Yes I think this blame on both sides you look you look at both sides. I think there's blame on both sides and I have no doubt about it and you don't have any doubt about it either. I didn't they know what they know what they're reported accurately you would said. They should've been startled in that group. But you also had people that were very fine people people on both sides you had people in that group. Excuse me excuse me. I saw the same pictures as you did. You had people in that group that were there to protest. Oh test the taking down of to them a very very important statue and renaming of apart from Robert e Lee to another name. George Washington was a slave owner was yours Washington slave owner. So we'll George Washington now loses status A. We're going to take down. Excuse me are we going to take down A. We're going to take down statues to judge. Yes and of course. They're trying to of course since he said that. They've tried multiple times to take down statues of George Washington Murals of George Washington. Any mention George Washington is a hero whose absolutely correct about that absolutely right and what he was saying saying was that there were other people there. He wasn't talking about the neo. Nazis there were other people there who are fine people. They weren't there to to cause trouble full to be violent to hurt anybody. And they keep making it out like he was talking about the neo. Nazis being really wonderful people think they know better than that any clarified his statement multiple times. Here's what he said when he kept getting hammered by this in the days following. Excuse me they didn't put themselves down as Neo Nazis. So first of all he said they. They didn't identify the people he's talking about didn't identify as neo Nazis and he said specifically. I'm not talking about about the neo Nazis and white nationalists because they should be condemned totally. And yet they perpetuate the lie and just a few months after he said. What do you WANNA do? Start taking down George Washington stuff. I googled legal here and I found out that the church that George Washington used to attend there in Virginia removed plaques memorial to George Washington to make their church more welcoming just a few months after he made sell successfully took down. George Washington Memorial Memorial things that honored him how cheese it's unbelievable unbelievable. Triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three and it pat unleashed on twitter.

It's election day across the country. November fifth Tuesday November fifth So we're voting all over the place including a really important election in Kentucky for Governor Matt Bevin as we mentioned earlier I love guys great. I mean I. I don't know a better conservative in the last twenty years then Matt Bevin but for some reason. Things don't seem to be going well as far as popularity is concerned in Kentucky. We'll I'll tell you about that in a second but morning consults morning consult put together the approval ratings of governors all over the country the most popular governor in came in the country. And this might surprise. You is a Republican but where Charlie Baker the governor of Massachusetts. Wow she's the most popular governor in the country. That's interesting it's not something I didn't know that and I don't even know that I knew they had a Republican governor right now. I don't know that I knew that either much less. Why did he was popular? It's interesting interesting in Massachusetts. I've because they they've elected quite a few Republican governor Mitt Romney. Mitt Romney Yeah and and and others and Bill Weld. I mean he is who conservatives anger stark conservative. Yeah so Charlie. Baker has seventy three percent approval rating. Seventy seventy three percent followed by Larry Hogan a Republican in Maryland. What at seventy percents happening? I don't know it's really amazing using sorry. I didn't know all these Phil. Scott checks in number three Republican of Vermont his liberal bastions with Republican government governors and. They love him again. I'm just ashamed. I didn't even know. They had Republican governors in these three three really hard core liberal states all three have Republican governors that. The People Love Number Four Mark Gordon in Wyoming Sixty three percent. I only something that makes sense in this world. Yeah but then go to New Hampshire Christodoulou Republican New Hampshire sixty two percent approval. And then. Finally you get Greg Abbott. I'm surprised surprise US along. Sixth does I don't know anybody who doesn't Love Greg Abbott Fifty nine percent approval for Greg. Abbott maybe the greatest governor in the history of governors. One at number seven is as Hutchinson from Arkansas. Fifty nine percent tied actually with With Greg Abbott but these all Republicans so far. Yeah yeah every one of them. Okay Brad. Little also Republican in Idaho a fifty nine percent. Kevin stick it in Oklahoma Homa rebublican. Doug Burgum Republican in North Dakota Rhonda Santa's fifty eight percent approval approval Republican Florida. Kay Ivey Republican Alabama the top twelve are all republicans. How isn't that fascinating the top thirteen billy Tennessee number fourteen Phil Phil Bryant Republican Mississippi? The okay so the top fourteen Republicans. Then you get to John. Carney Democrat Delaware. Fifty five percent approval number sixteen Gary Herbert Republican in Utah. I mean this is amazing. so it it goes on and on all the way down to Andrew Cuomo is thirtieth Democrat of New York. He is a Douche bag. uh-huh forty eight percent approval though because well it's New York keep scanning down here you get Gavin newsom forty forty second California in California. He's only got forty three percent approval. And then you go through the bottom mm few and you come to the very last one at number fifty with thirty four percent approval Matt Bevin. How can that be on combat hooky? That's really something in a state like Kentucky where you think they would respect the constitution. Shen don't understand it. I really don't see he's got he's got thirty four percent approval rating but apparently he was way behind this. This Democrat his opponent But he's caught up lately and he's either tied or maybe slightly ahead or slightly behind depending on. What poll you're looking at? And he thinks he's going to win by five yesterday. Five or six percentage points these right. He said last time he was he was supposed to lose by. I think he said he was supposed to lose by six anyone by nine. So that's a fifteen percent spread ad. Okay maybe happen again for him. I sure hope so goodness yeah I mean all politics is local and I don't know all that's going on in Kentucky but uh yeah if you're live there and you're hearing this right now please for Matt Bevin today polls are no doubt open right now Kentucky on eastern time I think so. Yeah it's split. Is it yeah. Let's see here. I'm trying to find it. Because they're the ones that Kentucky and Indiana are always the ones that come men I you know And on election night the national elections so anyway I know people can talk. You probably know what time they're pulls but it's kind of early. I think Greg Abbott tweeted out today. The Texas Department of Transportation began cleaning under bridges in Austin. So they're trying to clean up Austin because of the poop the needles. Oh is this. That governor the guy from Texas right who right brags about them having electricity the water yes offering Californians jobs here because we have electricity to slow process. He said and won't be completed in one day but steady daddy. Progress is being made. Our goal is to Austin safer while also providing better alternatives for the homeless. He wasn't kidding around with the Austin there. That's what I like. We get video. After video of homeless people attacking commuters throwing stuff in their cars Needles syringes all over the town. And we don't want Austin to San Francisco and Los Angeles. No thank you. There's no reason for to get to that point and avid knows that and he's going to try to put a stop to it right now. I mean Austin does deserve a rolling blackout or two but avid still in charge. And he's cleaning it up. Triple eight nine hundred thirty. Three ninety-three added PAT unleashed on twitter. More Pat Gray unleashed art. Great is here on the please radio network amazing story FROM SALON DOT com. The other day talked about this in Glens radio yesterday but It's about post truth. Politics politics being capitalism's undoing. They right no economic system has lasted forever and I imagined that someday when historians are studying the rise and fall of capitalism. It might look back at Glenn. Beck's two thousand ten Earth Day meltdown. As a seminal moment oment an exemplar for how capitalism created the Post Truth Society that seems destined to doom. It's ability to function though. It was only eight years ago. Okay so strange because two thousand ten was nine years ago salon they. I didn't get anything right in this game on the date on. It is November third. Yeah November third two thousand nineteen okay so we have largely forgotten how far right firebrand Glenn Beck essentially prophesied the brand of spite politics. That animates much of the right today on his radio show Beck gleefully shared with. His listeners is plans to turn on as many lights as possible in his home during Earth hour and to intentionally pollute as much as possible on Earth Day. That's funny I might start listening to this guy the grazes again Glenn Beck. Yeah Yeah he's GonNa turn see what you were supposed to do is turn off lights lights on Earth Day. He was going to turn them on as many as possible. That's counterculture right there. That's how hateful this man is. I'M GONNA burn garbage in in. My backyard was Styrofoam Bac told. The caller is April twenty. Second Two thousand ten radio program. Have you cut down your earth Earth Day tree yet yet and put it in your living room. It's great I decorate mind with heat lamps. That's a different story. You know in our Earth Day. What we decided to do is turn on every late in the studio because we have some cockroaches to expose tonight in the bright light consider for a moment the kind of political position position one must take in order to find joy and purpose in wilfully burning? Something is caustic as Styrofoam ones yard. Such in Act has no functional purpose. Besides spite yet beck seems to believe it is his individual choice his individual freedom he he believes or has told to believe by Zionist masters. I'm sure and that Burning Styrofoam is somehow as American as Apple Pie. Beck of course doesn't own the atmosphere. We all have to breathe the same one hence the chemicals released in the burning of these toxic synthetic plastics plastic spread across the planet in short order. We've all inhaled there carcinogens by now if future historians look back at this moment surely they will marvel at what kind of confused ideological belief system could compel someone to do something so selfish and frankly stupid yet. Capitalism begat this culture this notion that we alone have the individual right to do whatever we want with our time money or lighters even or especially if it hurts others. Capitalism to function requires us to collectively deny the sheer idea of the collective have good as Margaret Thatcher once said there is no such thing as society there are individual men and women and there are families on and I'm on. The Sky goes completely unaware blissfully unaware or unconcerned that he was kidding hitting that it was a joke. That's amazing because the left is so quick. They're so literal with everything yes you you know what this could have been written by Judy. This could have absolutely I mean. I wonder if Judy works at Salon. This this is a judy article. The woman who called US last. What was it march March first two thousand nineteen then was I forget what it was? We were talking about a day before because We were talking about how we all work for the CIA. Alex Jones was correct. Yeah Yep we're agents and she was disgusted the fact that we were gleefully admitting Yep And all this time I believed you and I think you know but but my point on the left when when they're talking about critique of the right but when them doing something oh come on. It's free speech. We're just joking looking around. It's are you talking about come on. It's madness the double standard that you know. It's so prevalent that it's not even worth mentioning mentioning the most of the time because it's like okay. Do I have to say it if this were building the blame. She's all right.

Right like so many Democrats are now. I would hope anyway Jap into watch Monday night football last night I did it. It was the cowboys and giants giants giants and think it was in the third quarter second quarter second quarter a black cat. Jet Black Cat runs out. You can't show it to you The NFL will produce in in broadcast prison. If we do I for some reason you can't you can't promote their product. Guess outside their medium just a strange the situation. MLB is the same way but anyway a cat ran onto the football field. And how do you. You can't round up a cat. They're too fat cat. Quick quick it had cat like reflexes ads so for about five minutes the cats running around on the field until he finally finally decides to if found the tunnel. You've found the tunnel. I I mean. Let's nobody laid a hand on it though right when they first showed it on camera it was about midfield and it made its way all the way it got right about the one yard line and instead of calling plays like Nebraska. It actually made it into the end. Sown went out of bounds there after it crossed the plane and it got turned around at the wall and then finally made its way out triumphant. But we'll see that can on night Monday night football funny blooper montages for the rest of our lives and anyway so people are saying that that was a bad omen for the Dallas cowboys. The rest of their twenty one thousand nine season the cowboys went on to lose that game. No no they won. They won handily they did is they. Were behind well twelve. Well ten think when I went to bed yeah I went to bed at halftime thirty seven. Eighteen year. Dallas Cowboys beat your New York. Giants and keeps fantasy team fell just short of the miraculously comeback. Thank you very much. Did the cubs have something to do with that. Yeah every time Michael was thrown that I saw it was awesome just off. The mark. Ingram was thrown to Stuff the mark but Anyway Brett Maher the former Nebraska kicker helped me out quite so thank you also. We need to stop America's latest tragedy and that's the fact that Monday night football is on. ESPN you're right and SPN has has destroyed Monday night football. Yeah the guys have done to going on me tested tours. Not that bad but booger booger McFarland. Religion not speak good. have it come on really. You can't do any better than that these fun but I just don't want him announcing single like you know it's bad it's really bad and the whole presentation is just not as good yeah as it was on. ABC right down to the graphics. Sir Annoying. I I can't find what I'm the information I'm quickly looking for. I can't find during Monday night. Football it's terrible. It's terrible broadcast in it. I resent the fact that they've ruined Monday night football. I don't even really look forward to it anymore very little because it's such a bad broadcast now. Now and the Games you know the cowboys and giants was that I guess. If you're a cowboy fan you loved it but that's not a good match up. The giants are two and six six. Now they're two and seven Kareem on terrible. I mean that's more wins in the Falcons to say well I mean. Virtually everyone has more. Wins than the Falcons Dolphins. Yes so the only tied right. Dolphins and Falcons tied for the worst record for the the bengals are still winless. All the forty niners are are the only as the Bengals as bad as they are. I didn't think they'd be great. But wow they are really really bad they will get there they will get there was Taylor former. Nebraska quarterback is now their coach. No I don't want to hear his comments but anyhow so I thought it was good Sunday night you know patriots. I got the Ravens Lamar Jackson. Yeah spanked that was fun. So they're not gonNA go undefeated Meanwhile president trump because he loves to do this said that Bell O'Rourke quit like a dog. Everything's like dog. Beg like a dog in my office. He's acts like a dog so on Friday of ECORSE aurore jumped out of the race. The means he didn't have the means to move forward successfully so trump's response came came days after he said Islamic state leader Abu Bakar al-Baghdadi had died like a dog. That's the other one died. Like a dog beg like a dog. quit like dog like a dog. I love it so speaking speaking at the rally in Mississippi the president said that Iraq was a poor pathetic guy. He's right about that accurate. He's he's definitely accurate on that he came out of Texas a very hot political property and he went back as called as you could be. He had earlier mocked aurore on twitter. Saying Ono Betto just dropped out of the race for president despite him saying he was born for this I don't think so exclamation point. He also described former vice vice president. Joe Biden a front runner for the race mentally deficient and said he was dropping like a rock which is which he actually is so the president in fine form picking off the Democrats that are running for president triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three also at pat unleashed on twitter.

I forget what it was but it was like I think the first there's down or whatever the the little arrows has I intend secondhand something like that. It was yellow or something it would come up and so people were like. There's a flag on the play. Oh yeah at the half time like the head of. ESPN tweeted out. Alright we've heard you and we've changed our graphics Blah Blah Blah. I mean they don't get together over over there don't really bad and you know they're I think they're college. College broadcasts are pretty good Usually but something about Monday night football needs to be special needs to be top level. And this just isn't I mean top level broadcast broadcast. And I'm putting you on the spot here but is there anybody that comes to mind like a broadcast team. You would like to see up in the booth isn't around today. We'd love to see Romo in Nance obviously or something like. Yeah Ralph Michaels Al Michaels already taken. And they're doing good with their own things but is there anybody like. I like Brad destler. If they could steal him away from the college broadcast I I bet he do a decent job really good job on Monday nights they need to stay in. The World of sports is another words they brought in Dennis Miller and he didn't have a sports background is if somebody that can be up in the booth like that the Again I put on us both on the spot because I didn't think this through gnarliest around him. Is he available to kind of fix this road arledge. We need to take that. It doesn't need to but I don't know. ESPN understands it needs to be fixed. They just keep doing it well. And what's his face left last year. You know a tight end for the cowboys went back. He's in witten. Yeah and he was not good and everybody knew he was not good. Thank you want to go back to go play football again. And he's well from exponential distal. Been uh-huh yes. The curse of the black cat has nothing on the Keith curse. That's true anytime. He starts rooting for team. Forget it from MMA fake Dylan is Don d-o-n lords is a fake Dylan. This is fake dawn. WHO's the real the real dilemma used the fake Dylan? What we really need to know is if Tommy Tommy? John is good enough to bring back underwear eating beds. Oh okay well you know what I wouldn't want to eat it. If you'RE GONNA make an exception it would be Tommy John. Yes they are so so comfortable and often supernatural fabric and so it probably go down fairly smoothly.

Obviously otherwise you're not going to get it passed who she's It's crazy what I it's hard to believe. But we're seeing their true colors right now. Hey two colours shining through it true colors. That's why we don't like you triple eight nine hundred thirty three three late. I'm going to have Cindy lauper my head for the rest of the day and not happy about that whatsoever. You'RE WELCOME WON'T BE FREE TILL I'm sure he choose. Colors are beautiful LACO way. Oh Lovely you bet you bet. Thank you for that now. Here's why we need our air fifteen. Pretty pretty solid the story about what your Ar fifteen can do for you in your home. A pregnant woman is being credited with saving the lives of her husband and her daughter after she used her air. Fifteen to fatally shoot a home intruder. The MOM sprung into action when two intruders entered the families Lithium Florida home last week and pistol whipped her husband while violently grabbing their daughter. Now they broke the husband's eye-socket he had twenty stitches in his head. He had three staples put in his head. They beat him pretty severely with the with the guns as soon soon as they got as soon as they had gotten through. The back door opened They had a pistol on me. The mother said or the one I I guess this cat and there were grabbing my eleven year old daughter they then pistol whipped him and kicked him while the man's wife who's eight months pregnant ran back into the bedroom and retrieve their ar fifteen she said all she says when when he came toward the back door and she was in her line of sight she shot him and he made it from my back door to roughly two hundred feet in in the front ditch before the AR. Fifteen did it stay in other words. The bullet kicked in and did some damage and the guy fell dead in in the ditch. That's what happens when you pistol whipped. People break into their home. Shouldn't be doing that. Police said at a press discomforts that they found the man's dead body lying in the ditch nearby. The second suspect was on the loose homeowners. said he took a severe beating but credited his wife with saving. Emma got a fractured eye. Socket fractured sinus cavity concussion and the twenty stitches and three staples in my head. Those guys came came in to normal pistols and my ar fifteen stopped it. She said it even the playing field and kept them from. I'm killing her husband. So there you go. I mean that's what they are fifteen can do for. You better. Wants to take away from citizens so they can't protect themselves in their own homes mass men who grabbed their daughters and break in and beat their spouse. Okay so what if he had already done all of that and she was forced into when mandatory by back in they gave back their air fifteen and they had no means with which to defend themselves. Police don't get there in time. So what what. All three of them are dead at this point. She's pregnant so for four people know what the bad guys would have turned their guns into. Oh that's right. This is what it never happened. Just amazing also. A man killed at Maryland. Popeye's in a fight linked to the popular. Chicken Sandwich with a man was stabbed to death outside of Maryland. Popeye's in a fight over the chains Fried Chicken Sandwich spokesman for the Prince George's Police Department said the twenty eight year old. Who hasn't been identified was was killed at a restaurant in Oxen Hill? Just outside DC. The fight started after somebody cut in line and he got stabbed to death over Over over getting in line in front of somebody. I mean how ridiculous this chicken sandwich I know. And that's the other thing the sandwich sandwich I mean. How good can popeye's chicken sandwich be? I don't understand this able or waiting in line around here An Hour Orna half and you can only buy one chicken sandwich at a time. Apparently they've they've got a limited supply I think they're making this up and creating the scary of what a great marketing plan if they are. It's incredible it's ridiculous. I feel like it's like there's zombies out there and just now I feel like I should avoid the sandwich so I don't become one of them. Have you ever even not that. I don't even care about Popeye's chicken do am I. Just completely out of the mainstream is that like a wildly fabulous chicken place. I mean there's been times where I've you know wanted to eat Popeye's fried chicken uh-huh pregnant at the time. No I mean there's been a couple of times rising. I want some Popeye's fried chicken but I was never fabulous. Is it better than chips. E is it better than it can't be better than chick-fil-a no sandwiches right. Yeah and I'm just talking about the fried chicken that I've had a hanker and four a couple of times I I incurring hanker and had a hankering for some Cecchi so I've had a hankering for Popeye's chicken a couple of occasions in my employees life but not to the point where I'm going back tomorrow and I'm coming back in our and a half before I want to eat it and I'm going to stand in line for its whatever's happening with the sandwich which I swear Jeffries right it's with crack. So that's in the breading. They crack cocaine in the breading at Popeye's fried chicken. That's the only explanation. No Buzz on Popeye's chicken that I know about in my entire life and then all of a sudden because they have A. They're they're putting their chicken that they're already make between two pieces of bread now. Everybody must have one why and they released it on Sunday. We're open on Sunday. I don't know man I. I'm looking forward to trying it but I'm certainly not going to go and wait for it. American I don't wait for things I can't imagine that it's better than chick-fil-a sandwich. It can't be can. Yeah but even if it is not worth waiting in line waiting chicken sandwich there is literally literally there is no oh food worth standing in line for for ninety minutes There's no food at all. I mean okay if like one unpack of double stuff oreos left on the earth. I'd stand in line really. I would. Not what wouldn't stand in a two person line for double stuff. oreos triple violate nine hundred. Thirty Three Ninety three and pedal on twitter few days ago on the subway in New York City a transgender lady attacked an old man who is singing Gospel songs and reading his Bible to people on the subway the transgender lady reportedly took took off her his their stiletto and hit the man in his head with her Stiletto. Here's how a witness described it. A world we live in that some people see preaching the word of God as a a threat to their lives. This old man right here was just singing. Some Gospel songs. It sharing the word of God to people on the train. He didn't say anything to hurt anyone. He wasn't even loud. You could barely hear him talk but this is what he got in return from the transgender person who hit him in the head with their heels through his his bible away and no one did anything to help him but to look at this old man bleed. Well it just so annoying join because this old man was far away from her him her them and I was just so mad and I felt I needed to do something to help him because he was bleeding. So so much in the head with a Stiletto we are a society gun mad man. And that's okay because it's a transgender person. And you know they. They don't live by our rules. I guess they don't have any rules for some reason. Now Mike goodness so weird has really crazy and then another another instance of the NYPD. Being completely disrespected respected. Their vehicle was trashed while while the police responded to a domestic violence call. And here's what happened to their vehicle and listen to the community just mocking and laughing. The police that showed up to break up a violent L. and domestic dispute and while they were up in the apartment their vehicle happen garbage dumped on it. Are you amazed explaining to them. You're holding us up. HOLD US up from stopping crime in your community. Check heard is nice nice garbage. This is in the Nybro all the nine the nine you heard the tree seriously. Only nine society gone. Med we're unraveling. Oh really pathetic really sad that now now don't be the person that they call to save their lives right but until then dump garbage on your vehicle as you see if the police show up the nine when you really need. 'em wouldn't that be something if they don't don't show up only early in the nine. How I like that police officers do this? I wake up every day and put their lives between. Don't better scum in a bullet better people than me. That's you're triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety. Three some of the really big important initiatives that are being voted on today across the country three in Colorado. They're working on a gambling proposition. gambling and taxes authorizes and taxes taxes wagering on sporting events. Because you know that's legal now in most places in Maine there's a proposition authorizing legislation to allow for persons with physical disabilities to use alternative signatures to sign initiative petitions. That sounds weird weird. But I'm sure there's probably like if you can't if you don't have use of your hands or something right you can do something else like yeah. I don't know maybe electronically in Texas. We've got a proposition to prohibit the state from levying an income tax on individuals. Now we don't have income taxes state income tax in Texas. This is to make sure we never do. Yeah so I think right now. It's just a simple majority in the Texas legislature would would make that happen with this will do is it would make it like a two thirds majority needed and it would have to pass a statewide referendum which makes it all but impossible I like that too and yeah and there's a lot of fun stuff going on it's not but I guess Washington State has a whole bunch of taxes. Voting on thirteen of the fifteen ballot deals. Either repealing attacks or extending attacks actually. I don't know of any of them repeal but it's kind of like it's either do you want to extend the tax or or or attacks and it's like what that tells me is. Washington state has too many taxes. My goodness that's a lot going on there. Yeah there is. There's there's a bunch of fort like fourteen or fifteen of them now. Some of the weirder propositions that voted on in this country in recent years back in one thousand nine hundred eighty six in California. They voted on whether or not they should prohibit toxic waste in their drinking water her as usual. California voters are being presented with many citizen initiatives. Still another would forbid toxic. Waste discharge into drinking water. It is being opposed by the industry which claims the definition of toxic is too broad. Wow never to should a police officer get to walk his beat with Ventriloquist's dummy that was in one thousand nine hundred ninety three. They voted on that the New York Times wrote along with school voucher sales taxes in city charter revisions voters in San Francisco. I guess we'll decide next Tuesday whether to allow allow a veteran police officer to walk his beat. With a ventriloquist's dummy Brendan owes smarty of the laughing. Irish eyes whom officer officer geary picked out of a ventriloquist catalog after he was selected to work at a community policing program that encouraged officers to use creative and ingenious methods to to break down barriers citizens. Police the hand-carved dummy costs seventeen hundred fifty dollars note. No because officer. Gary wouldn't hear of the seven Hundred Hundred Dollar Molded Particle Board version. They approved it by the way all right so he could walk around with his ventriloquist's dummy. And what's his name. This guy this officer. Whatever Brenda no smarty. I'm finding this guy DOC officer Gary Officer Gary Marty is is the W. O.. He retired in what you're in. Nineteen Ninety eight okay. Okay so for five years. He was able to carry the dummy around a named a horse for him. That's great that's cool number three. Should we give a million dollars to one random voter a proposal to a one million dollars in every general election to one lucky resident chosen by lottery simply for voting no matter for whom has Qualified for the November ballot Mark Osterloh a political gadfly. Who's behind the initiative? The Arizona Border Reward Act is promoting promoting promoting it with the slogan. Who wants to be a millionaire vote so that was in two thousand six? It was defeated by the way they decided not to do. I think the founders would would be so wait so let me get this straight freedom not worth it right but a million dollars million dollars that will we'll get you to the polls it probably would have worked goodness. I bet if you do this today was that they get defeated and we know why percentage thousand six that would pass today. Should we take over the Grand Canyon when voters in Arizona. Go to the polls they will be asked to decide a land. Ownership tug of war should the Grand Canyon belong to all Americans or just the residents of Arizona controversial ballot measure backed by Republicans in the state legislature is seeking sovereign control all over millions of acres of federal land in the state including the Grand Canyon. Defeated should Denver set up a commission to track aliens. This proposal was rejected in the polls when voters in Denver opted against an initiative to track aliens from Outer Space. Well then when they show up. You're not gonNA know about it. They're just GONNA fly right straight into downtown Denver and take you by surprise. The proposal known as initiative typ three hundred would have involved setting up a commission to monitor aliens and a website to allow members of the public to report UFO sightings. That was in two thousand ten. They said No. y'All can have Denver anyway number six. Should we let roxy the miniature pig stay Roxie. The potbellied pig will be moving moving to a new home now the peak will voters have said. She has worn out her welcome. So Yeah Yeah. Cynthia and Tim Gaston and their children their two children who own the petite corker said Wednesday. They'll move rather than give roxy up on Tuesday. Residents of the city of twenty thousand six hundred about thirty miles northwest north west of Dayton in Western Ohio rejected a ballot proposal that would have allowed residents to keep miniature pigs as pets. The vote was twenty six eighty two to nineteen fifty seven in nineteen ninety-three and so I guess they had to move it. Should we ban sitting on the sidewalk in Berkeley among the most generous cities in the world in funding homeless services considering daytime ban on sitting on the sidewalk at all commercial areas where you can sit on the sidewalk at night. I would think so. Yeah not during business outright. Just not so. You're in the way of customers. I gotcha city. Currently shortly prohibits lying on the sidewalk but police and city officials said the law is ineffective because people sit when the officers walked by then laid out again and it was defeated so they didn't ban it man that was in twenty thirteen. which so now do they have a problem with the homeless in cal-? Yeah yeah they do yeah she just start our own state at Nance convenience store in eastern Colorado where the front door visitor where the front door tells visitors offers. That gun control is hitting your target the farmers crop-sprayers mechanics and retirees. Who Gather for morning coffee? Say they've had enough of the state date and it's Democrat leaders. They bristle at gun control. Laws and marijuana shops green energy policies and steps to embrace gay marriage illegal immigrants so in November this rural county and ten others will hold a vote on whether to secede from Colorado and work to form their own state. That was in two thousand thirteen. I remember talking talking about that and the measure was defeated. So they didn't do it. I've seen a book I should have bought it. I don't know it just all of the movements like this over the years in American history. I mean it's enough to fill fill a book I think we've got Jefferson is always trying to break apart southern Oregon Northern California. That's in constant thing but Those are fun to entertain the other. There's proposition six prohibiting the sale of horse meat for human consumption and in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight each year. An estimated ten thousand California horses end up as Gourmet steaks on the tables in France Switzerland Belgium in Japan and and there was approved to stop selling Europeans are horsemeat so they didn't anymore. I guess this is gross. I thought should we ban airboats at night or is that a hate law for more than a decade. A dispute simmered over air boat noise on Orange Lake. Nunes Lake and other water bodies in Allah. Kula can't county the battle revved up in two thousand nine and we'll go full throttle full-throttle election days voters decide. UNA propose nighttime air boat curfew. It was approved. Oh one okay. Yeah I want to just say Arab Noise five times fast Should we build a new house for the pregnant elephant in Cincinnati Cincinnati. Zoo officials have threatened to ship off. It's four Asian elephants one of them pregnant if voters reject fifty two million dollars tax levy for new elephant towse and parking lot and it was

Episode Twenty-Point-Five: World Series Check-in

"That's all the people who said they saw this coming Yeah the NASA to nothing on the do you hear that break you know that this was crickets Granada opponent heavyweight champion and getting past three rounds you can do that he won't even know what to do with you and that's what happened in Game Two man's actually what happened way that's the thing like I feel like the real reason we're doing this is to to be smug right and and things like that that that seventh inning with six runs dude holy smokes dude it's like the rocky movies everybody else shock and awe the way we like it though let's be honest it's true this is this is what we've wanted I've been here routing all season long for somebody antibody to be able to take down the Astros Yep me to and and to do it the right does your got for lander but what I wasn't expecting was errors runs I think it's over now yes they have some trouble because there's some issues there but man hasn't been amazing aw it's a chore that's a Different Topic but baseball family we're here today with this special episode of the Baseball Together podcast Brigham Brett and so it feels like once he gets them pressure put on these start to press a little bit and we see what happened in game two as far as the errors you still we have a problem seriously I've been probably I've been waiting my whole life k. most of my life too legit game one was great game too was bonkers it was bombed that was that's the only word I can think of to describe it because I can't believe you know we we expected to to at the end of the first inning kind of you know we expected after that first inning where the nats came out and jumped over land outta here we're here because this world series was just it's been too crazy to not talk about yet been a couple of good games and were shocked were shocked intimately be able to utter those words right I think we all have yes we'll talk more about it in a little bit but I I don't think there celebrating small right celebrate it we celebrate subrogation gay looks in game two from extra bases being taken just the astros the they almost seem like they're like out of out of themselves world series it's been absolutely amazing I'm loving it oh so toilets it's worth staying I'm sure your stand up way later than I am but really were too runs we expected after game one for the Astros to come answer that and they did yeah okay tied back up new ballgame starting over I feel like I'm watching rocky movie when it's like no he can't go past three rounds he doesn't know how to go past three rounds all you gotta do is get the Job Yup and it's freaky it's like what and Bregman he is working I don't know where but Bregman is a mess right now house man they are playing phenomenal fundamental baseball if you see a no no the way to describe it because I don't feel like they're in their own heads but at the same time all season they haven't played a whole lot of close games yeah I agree so I don't get what's going on but that's on the astros side it's all confusing nobody knows where their heads are at but look the national does he had that big home run but other than that he just he seems like he's lost bobbled the ball twice on a single play in the seventh inning of game two the plate to its he's guessing and I I mean I know understand you guessed the pitch but he he's just guessing where the ball is seems like just fan house like 'cause I was thinking the same thing no man this is the most exciting that was the most exciting inning of baseball I yeah I think it was Josh Maltese like this would be a perfect opportunity for some old school baseball and let's see if he shows button here because that would be what you used to do and then he did that reinsured from my seat I couldn't believe it fell no man and the the Joe and John were like whole this seen in so long I'm a walgreens win a little bit right now I'm not gonNA lie several older right three runs nine hits however they stranded nine yes left nine on base for sure so here are the numbers of her landers postseason career postseason so the LDS he's not really gettable even though the singer that I've already made a big deal out of the he made up some awful lie about not running but we've moved on the did against Tampa Bay Yes and it was like Whoa what the heck is going on it was interesting so I this is more of the same bunt okay to advance the runners in the world's in twenty nine thousand nine I stood up and clapped I was I he's got to write they're the first ones to eight and one lifetime record and alias thirteen starts or twelfth starts thirteen appearances starts Oh and five record whoa Oh and five in the series uh-huh exciting so I wanNA do a little bit statistical breakdown from from game to nerd alert so yeah at a better level right this is this is in perfected almost an in game two look perfected yeah yeah it was great and you know so this means that the nationals were not only getting is on base but they're bringing them in because the astros the Astros had nine hits yeah as a whole portion if not all right don't well the dashes scored twelve rods fourteen and we can they haven't been sharp they've been sharp all your lawn maybe I don't know maybe they haven't been that sharp well we know we saw this slot we saw some weaknesses exploited point two from the Hale D. S. K. so I don't know if he is a guy who gets tired by by the time he gets the world series or hits per nine up from the from the LDS by almost two and a half home runs per nine up by one it's not that because it was similar in two thousand seventeen so you know what I mean here all these excuses from people so in against the dodgers doesn't seventy we'll go down with walgreens give me some cherry sours and obeying energy I'll be fat and happy staying up late watching these walgreens players man tell you eight one record now let's go to the lcs a little bit worse six and four eleven starts Oh and era in the aled Six even that's double Bro Say Math again CEO one more time I dare you I double dare Brad I didn't see the nats coming out to coming out of Houston I will say I thought they were GonNa get ver- lander because he's gettable you have some great he's shown that Dan to home runs yeah and then we go back to the two thousand six world series he had he had own to go against the cardinal gave up seven earned runs two home runs ten total runs something similar so it's like I don't know if it's a postseason thing or if it's the ball changed wow so so the history is only south here it is there's a pattern there's a pattern yes two point five to three point one three now here's the kicker here's the wanting this Kurt Suzuki whom I'm becoming a huge fan of by the way is very experienced against ver lander in regular season play but but so you ready for his lifetime World Series Era yes I'll stop interrupting you think you sorry five point seven three lifetime era in sit so before the in game two the nats were on a seven game winning streak they they had played in four different cities five of seven on the road with a one point eight three team era in three forty average with runners in scoring position seven they've won now eighteen of their last twenty with the successful game too and they take it home tonight but it's it's very high it is very high yeah it is it's six yup first time Washington will see a world series played at in DC since like thirty two or something like that taking advantage of whatever you know could be I don't know but it's interesting because even twenty in twenty seventeen we one was that both pitchers went over a hundred pitches Love that old school can I get an amen right so in postseason so I think I saw I think they were talking about during the game they forty five at bats against Ver Lander in that's a law the that's been their big Achilles heels they've got guys in scoring position they cannot bring him in and there's been some base running gaffes like we signed game one that whole thing was it's w. that's the way it's been he hasn't lost since May and the Astros haven't lost when he was pitching since July they bat it all the way around in one half inning and we were like what now here's the thing that I loved a couple of things that I loved bath takes all my theory that one the two I mean you that's a lot to see one guy yeah you really get a chance to know what happens and so in that seventh inning the Astros have three pitchers just to get through that and I'm the nats have to know this and they're they're swinging confidently I mean that's that's really all it is they're up they're ready to hack and they're doing well and it doesn't hurt that your guy or if he just feasts on inferior competition in Ale the S. and the and then by the time they get to the world series they have enough postseason tape on him that there ah man seriously fantastic and then five out of those six runs came with two outs yeah yeah it was it's at all the the mariners one in because they skies used to be in Montreal the Expos yet and I think you know let's let's game one real quick right so you just assume they're gonNA win how could you yeah but I think it's another one of those things where you're just out there ready to hit they're ready to be gene when when the Astros did win He came out with a with a live Kay he got the loss in that start he gave up fiber on this one he might who knows he might go game forward just to keep them alive if that's what it takes and I and that's what I was gonNA say Yeah Yep instead of bullpen day that I can see that totally happening get into game game three a little bit because man the other thing that that was crazy about this whole thing was you just figure when Garrett Cole gets out there not real good but the thing that the astros about the Astros it kind of surprised me as look at their splits like there pitch again because I'm sure this will go at least five so he's going to be again you'd think so and I think we can chalked out his next outing up to win home and away and stuff like that so at home they were sixty and twenty one during the regular season yeah but on the road there forty seven and thirty four right which progressive because they were jumping on him and we've talked about how Garrett Cole is a guy who generates swings and misses he's missing missing I mean he eh clearly that the nationals as a team stranded only died writers down this means that the data archive the fans in Washington are going to bring I don't know what is going to happen because that really is yes next level there and we've never seen it so it's like the UN Astros that's all that's everybody right there were listening right now yet because nobody saw this coming back owner comes Leonard cast so as far as statistics over the DASH doors but no okay so up to the score to ride and you'll be fine but with that many guys slumping are they going to be able to score the going to be and with the energy levels thirty three whatever I've been for a long time it's been a long time and never this franchise either I know you know still thirteen games over five hundred it's not as glaring no so if you can get them home you're pretty you're pretty much OK on the road against them because they're not going to do as well and but it it it's Kinda felt like like a dull almost a buzz it yeah right instead of a raucous like you know fat off of this team winning the last year's turning into that that Oakland crowd with warriors they just kind of expect you to win and they're not really in it too to especially his not hit well on the road this posting and with Bregman in his slump you got to wonder in this elite need to go five right you just gotTa Wonder Yeah Huge Party Yeah and there was at one point when when Joe Buck and and John smoltz are saying you know it's really loud in here we can hardly hear but it wasn't very long yeah because they're going to have to is you don't want that bullpen going whole game no no because we've seen it it's not it's not real good one when one hundred sixteen games it was to out so what was the motto that's nice and that's exactly what that was nobody cares what occurs to oust them just go up and do your business goes after the home run or something or it might have been off after that springer double I can't remember what it was but it doesn't last it doesn't mean Jane like it used to it's almost it's they've kind of gotten tim thinning occurred Suzuki started it all off and that Solo Solo home run and then he he was the final out recorded on a fielder's choice on quantity did did minute maid park filled with flat to you elise game on and I don't know if they took the place scoring early because there's a legitimate astern there yeah yeah 'cause 'cause this is the thing with Kohl's Yara where it is Dan just like every underdog team just like every first time team right Y- The fans understand the the role that they play Horiuchi Yeah and I think that's interesting point you bring up because the fans in Washington are oriented to help I mean they're there for a good time but they also under agreeance because of what they'd been through I totally agree but now it's the same thing in Washington and I think there's some sort of cosmic like universality they draft picks yeah how they got those draft picks I'm not a big fan of but well but they did it they were success they did it yeah yeah and then once they want okay let's move on Yeah I think I felt similarly but I was I was really pulling for this city and the fans to have a good expire whatever like universal standard or metaphysical thing that's going on whatever it is I don't even know then crazy and I think that's just the way it's going to be Joe John we're talking about the video feed from Washington during these games in minute maid yeah because of that because they are the underdog they're the underdog city they're the underdog team they were young and they're put together kind of the right way you know right it's it's awesome I love it I love how infectious it is and I love how electric the fans are and I about the underdog in the energy level because there I I don't know man I think there's something like if you can live and they were like no people look it's crazy probably going to have to renovate the entire facility but before we get there doc teams just you just can't help a love that Yep that's right and and you know I'll be honest I was pulling for the astros in two thousand seventeen and you'll part of it might have been the hurricane that it was something for them to look forward to something for the positive about because they had such the been beaten down so much by that hurricane it's GonNa be a rough place I mean we see you saw what happened when when they beat the dodgers oh man the Nelson yeah he is he is what a cool team right what a cool story and if you get that's the thing man so it's like the twin he's hitting like a veteran I know these men going with the pitch hitting it thousand feet over the fence and left center my gosh he's so much sixteen cubs the stories of the players and how they got there and have the team was built and everything it's the that's the kind of stuff that that you love with these under I love that you know the story lines is just all great the average t major I think is thirty one or something like that yeah because they've got Kurt Suzuki like thirty seven how he kendricks another thirty-seven-year-old Yeah Zimmerman is up there thirty six thirty seven like that totally but then you've got one Soto yeah actually I was really paying attention to that the after that hurricane is like the Astros are GonNa win the world series because this is what happens yeah it is and boy those three teams are were like phenomenal and we know that this Houston team is phenomenal you can if you can hold yourself to that whatever standard nobody knows about then you deserve to win underdog it's pretty cool that's right the three teams so there is a chance so you're telling me there's a chance right like there's a there's a it's possible it's really cool So I have I have a hold on before a couple of things I wanNA share so Houston has lost the first two games at home right with home field advantage to then successfully win the world series and it has only been done three times thanks to Fox for explaining it I just was reading on I don't remember what website this is but apparently I don't know if three okay to win a world series after losing the first two games at home are the nineteen eighty five royals the miracle mets from nineteen eighty six and the nineteen ninety-six Yankees is true I haven't done enough research which means it could be fake news which means I'm gonNA share it with you the apparently Fox error that we turn we let you listen to sixty seconds of Joe Buck renting drone droning think endeared himself just a little bit to most of the country when he said Okay I don't know who the geniuses are over Pink Fong Soreq offensively historic to absolutely so it's possible right like we could see them run away with this still but at the same time the man that Baby Shark Song really is get stuck in your head that is brilliant he says he has twin year and a half however millions of fans were understandably upset when we accidentally pressed the UN Mute Joe Buck but in on our control console UN mute who's totally twelve he you know he's like who's a freaking all-star no not even the dodgers it was the one against the brewers in eighth inning that little defensive lapse that they had and that place win GonNa say was I think despite all the Joe Buck stuff we talk about and everybody talks about Solaris he i uh-huh oh okay so that is tongue firmly in cheek and it was hilarious and it was worth sharing but one thing I did this is this is published by the Babylon be Donald Anything about them I just caught it oh yeah outings very close to being no hitters yeah it recent largely yeah yeah so now totally so that's yeah leaves a little bit to be desired there Sanchez however freaking funny it says we've earned the trust of our viewers by muting Joe Buck throughout every Game Fox spokesperson told reporters. I don't know what's going to happen honestly I like that that could go either way with the way the nets are hitting

Hour 1:World Series Game 2

"Righty over then we need lots of answers about the future of the greatest quarterback ever shefty is here Tom Brady is the topic this is going to be interesting and morning it is time to get up with the world series Houston we have a problem highlights on the way the answer to this question is it all aw Houston nationals Astros Stephen Strasburg Justin for lender what more could you possibly want op the seventh inning so uncharacteristic for the Astros especially Alex Bregman this is your MVP right here she can play a mean third base but not last night everyone was safe well three they take a to nothing lead back home clearly the nets about Plato's bottom line and they came into our building in played two really good Games and Derby he has the stuff here he goes with greeny thirty four changeups throughout the entire season he doesn't throw that right on right change he goes with it there the fall classic are the most by any pitcher ever and so just let's start there had coal and rural lander to start and they're down to nothing how did the nats gets over land it and they've shown it all season long and then things get worse the next batteries Ryan Zimmerman press me throws a wild pitch so now it's second and third is they're desperately trying to stay in the parts of one of the best pictures of the last twenty years is Justin for lander but he's been lit up in the world series according to Elias his six starts without a win fault that is good as it's been it'll get the strike outs possess Zouqi being able to take ninety four right here out of the park we were talking before the show the nationals go home to host a world series get up starting right now the house is full the sports world is run over and over was sports activity where do we get basically last night it was really the the long ball and being able and anthony reknowned you could argue that that I hit that he got the double off the wall and it was like two feet from being a home run and you look at justice bottom one astros are down to nothing but Alex Bregman is going to change that and this is a change that we talked about how this was for Strasbourg Redman one for the ball game and then Zimmerman the bad continues and this was pretty much all she wrote pretty much change up off the bat sixty miles an hour bregman all he can do is try to throw it off with zero is through Zouqi we're still in the seven Ryan Presley doing the pitching they intentionally walked Soto to load the bases we'll come in we're going to have to try to sleep off the latter third of this game obviously you don't WanNa be down two games here we are so I don't think anybody here is attendance his first game as a net and there's Kyrie irving getting ready to play his first game in Brooklyn and Richard Jefferson does anyone on the planet have handles like that guy no a future hall of Famer Cy Young winner he's been an all star five of the last six years including this season they need him to be that pitcher to get back in this thing or it is over them I mean he has to be an ace there aces have failed them and when you think about Zach Cranky as much as he hasn't been good already in the postseason the pitcher that he's been the last six years gone not giving up any more runs seventies finish the game six innings in total for Strasbourg top of seven and that is Kurt Suzuki what did we talk about early under the biggest under does this feel like this thing is firm I wanna ask you if it feels like it's over it feels like it's over and honestly it feels like it's all about that cranking and this is why they went and very uncharacteristic Grondona stakes about so then this was the killer for me and this is what the biggest weakness Berliners been all season long elevated fast it may very well wind up being all right to nothing nationals that's where we sit in baseball let's get now to the NBA where the performance of the night came in Brooklyn Caverns Iran could only watch it every day like I was his teammate for two and a half season on kill impressed every time I see him do some of this stuff split he made three people fall down before and he knew it as soon as he hit back to back changeups the longest home run throughout this year I wasn't number four should have walked astros tied you know I think the message is just don't don't hang your head I don't think anybody should go home tonight died about themselves we don't have time to do that in a way you can bring you this is not the Astros team in once the wheels started coming off at seventh-inning was the difference for the entire game six run frame match poured on they wouldn't maybe with NBA history is Kiki Vandeweghe Wilt Chamberlain also on the screen so with Kevin Durant not going to play this year is this what we should expect Brooklyn to in the long ball why because he elevate that fastball Kurt Suzuki making huge natural on the line the celebration is on unlikely Burke but Kyrie is going to be the focal point he's going to be the guy that makes this engine this engine go in this it's going to be impressive so listen I mean he was brilliant he's in NBA history couldn't do this and have the ball and be able to get this shot now yes he did not make it but there's only one person in the world I can do that The Brooklyn Nets the clippers were very attracted to free agents. This summer is because there's other talent there you're talking about Spencer Dinwiddie you're talking about jared Allen Karen a chance to go early and look only Kyri can fall down wallover get the ball up and get us out wash it only Kyrie Irving ask third quarter now next continue to make a run razzle dazzle Kyrie irvings bed I don't know what else there is to set like a kid like he has no offense fifty and he made it one of the most interesting season openers I can ever remember that said let's talk about the decision on the last play we'll set the stage for you they were down one there were came first one eight Washington since nineteen thousand eight hundred nineteen thirty three I covered that game yeah I think people look at this and say they beat coal they beat version we're now beginning continues that was right back up the middle to score huge about for Cabrera and you think about the county rebelled again in greening this team could avenue and we're GonNa talk about he didn't even have a turnover so like he was all over the place but they have a nets have a lot of talent right and it's not going to be just Kyrie part of the reason why you know like pretty much and I should point out that you do the game you did the game and you do a number of the nets games on yeah so is this what you were expecting this to look like basically all year not fifty eight and advertise but maybe I'm just trying to put myself mentality he was so hot all night long let's win or lose on his lap and also this is the first game of the year if you're talking about to win connery not that impressed but what he did last night was historic according to ally is fifty points yesterday were the most by players in a team him on Monday night Adam schefter you brought up the notion that Radi could be nearing the end of his time in New England Grady was asked about that yesterday w e Tom Brady has continued to play a high level for the Patriots who were seven or no and Brady on multiple occasions said he hopes to play until he's forty five but speaking before his standing up everyone's jerry because he literally did this for forty eight minutes last night that's a step back three with forty three points as the game goes to overtimes having guys have to play fifty minutes when you've been playing twenty minutes in the preseason there could be fatigue there could be injuries there's a lot of things that happen of your like hey we're going to go for it all in this game fourth grade I didn't know it was going to happen at this point this age but it's here and I just want to take full advantage of and just be happy what does it mean to you to get fifty in this twenty years of my life you know one day I'll wake up but I feel like okay that's that'd be enough and when that day comes that the for me all this all the time I never expected to play twenty years and I'm playing on a great team in it their entire team with brushing back and he's just kind of like what what are you guys doing one two three he called all three of them out on that play highway twenty-five in the first I think something Dean what you played with them you know the circumstances there you know the inner workings of the Organization to a degree do you think if Tom Brady left New England it would be Waesche in job wasn't done you know so I fifty just goes into just another two numbers that you know I it holds value but not really old seconds left in overtime they had a lot of options yes and what they chose to do is put the ball in his hands around the clock and one of the things that I was told that this is happening more often like you're just going to go for the it was a very unique one in a very rare one to link down by one with the time out to hold for the last shot again yeah the option there take a quick shot you still have time to foul if you don't make is put into motion and I don't think he knows how it's going to play out after this year but I think there's a possibility that this is his last season to retire or do you think there is any real chance he plays for another team oh I definitely think there's a chance you've always wanted to tables have heard they had one time out so they could have gone but they decided and then Kyrie's got fifty there was nothing about this game and the way he played that made this a bad decision Ed as much as my as much as my legacy talking to England would you want would you would you be tempting to try to test to see which we can answer that question and in that moment and and look he's still got a good shock rehearsing welcome to Brooklyn fifty points in his debut but they fall by one in overtime to football we go next where forty flaws but the way in play the way can handle you look at this he takes his time he's like okay this is going to be one on one I'm going to get the shot that I want and electric crowded is with us here and obviously you said that on Monday night a lot of people had a strong reaction I know it was important to you to point that you weren't reporting that he's leaving you were just pointing out the obvious the forty two years old and he's won six championships things have worked out pretty well for him there and as far as the whole Brady or Belichick thing I forgive me for saying that's the most ridiculous talking about it from a football perspective but sometimes it's a personal to he's done this for twenty years he's married he's got children they have dances he has a deal that will vote at the end of the year he selling houses trainer is selling his house what do you what can you tell us about your decisions correct these are acted you probably fantasizes about getting to another situation when in the super bowl their dismantling a ballot check let defense and showing how good he really is to me Brady's plane acute bottom of six now Strasbourg with two on two out and this is a big pitch and this is where he just nailed it I mean you think about the two runs he gives up that first inning he goes in the NFL it's a possibility last season with New England it's possibility that he just moves on and go somewhere else he doesn't know how it's GonNa turn out we don't know that question is something that a lot of people ask about and don't think it doesn't play in their minds at some point they haven't heard anything gene isn't always a great experience you might win and you may go on and get a big contract elsewhere but guys are kind of relieved when they get out of there sometime well he's been there too long for that to be the mind perfect marriage of the best coach and the best quarterback who happened to be on the same team at the same time for two decades agreed but the eagles are my street right whether you think it's ridiculous question is it is it was it breaking and I think a lot of times with with everyone is there's some sort of ego attached to that so if I'm brady not it's something that I can imagine if you're the greatest of all time there's one white whale left the beep maybe it is beating your own say this notion that Tom Brady would go someplace else play question in the entire world this is the most successful run in the history of a sport that's been around for one hundred years you don't do that with one person you do it because they're both the best at what they do with house money so at this point it doesn't really matter what he does now if you're brady and your forty to go in on whatever how old he is forty three next season but if you're going to be forty three I scores fifty just a Jersey kid playing for his home team you know it's nothing like this has been brewing since I was how it's GonNa turn out but again just look at the basic facts and that's what I said he's selling his house is treated showing his house and his contract doesn't it all you saw Dansk Kyrie yes he's got forty eight points yet great shooters gray scores have short memories writing this is that one sees it up but here we have here they had awesome I don't know after this year you know I don't know if it'll be five years schimmel okay so and so we had to throw a now let's get the hell the game decided because Kyriacou night but this is a good game in the OT irving again for three no but offensive rebound they get another chance goes back to you can say it from both sides because it appeared that Bella Tech wanted to move on from Brady and maybe win some championship with Jimmy Garoppolo it wasn't just brady so I can imagine that I would guess don't exercise caution and not rush him back and that Matt Moore will wind up starting football but the fact that he's already back at practice this comedian desires and I think the personal perspective also stretches to that locker room I haven't been in the locker room like Damian but like I'm around the league and I hear that being part of a ballot check list but now head coach Andy Reid has not ruled out mahomes for Sunday's game against the packers so my question Adam Schefter yes got to get home field advantage because they have a pretty comfortable lead to visit and I think that Patrick Mahomes is good enough to take a team healthy Patrick mahomes get enough to take team into into New England and win a playoff game something else I wasn't expecting to hear Patrick Mahomes practiced yesterday less than a week after his knee injury against the broncos we don't have a week ago having his name manipulated on the field I think I respect the Dirk Nowitzki Kobe Bryant's people that just need the state in one place dominated that old time what does brady there's just nothing left for him to gain or just look there are three options right he's either staying in New England he's retiring or he's GonNa go play I would think of those three that staying New England to me would seem like the least likely option is it are they playing games though they're not see that's the thing that people don't realize because there have been a wide range of injury reports all across the board people saying were tired or even perhaps move on and it would be to stay New England we'll say wow wow okay shefty ball I wasn't expecting to hear let's get to another quarterback in what way ready the least likely option of the three I think there I think you go any which way I think all three of them play but I think it'd be more likely refuting reports that he's interested in returning to the NFL we have an excerpt from that letter which was first reported by the Michigan insider and confirmed we SPN on Wednesday. Here's what he wrote I'll being in a limited fashion tells me that it's not another question that he could play next week unique lengthy two options should he play this weekend is the answer no or is the answer hell no oh it is and people thought he'd be finished for the season but he feels good he's obviously a physical freak do I think he's ultimately wanted to play this week in our guest he doesn't degrees point if Brady does leave nobody wins Bell doesn't win Brady doesn't win and the fact of the matter is what you get out of it because think about at least me being the young buck on the thing on people saying six weeks people saying it's been a week to week injury from the time that he suffered I know people find that aren't because he this located his knee here on a very busy day and involves Jim Harbaugh more on the drama surrounding Harbaugh in Michigan the coach sent a letter to the parents of current players and commitments hell no we were on TV it would be even more aggressive than that like they are good enough when he is healthy to go anywhere and win at any time so the only argument for trying to rush them back is Harbach is paranoid that like you don't release a letter to families because rumors are spreading you disregard room if they're totally false and more importantly got more to worry about this weekend you got Notre Dame coming into town after you just lost last week to Penn state you'll lose a lot more recruits by getting waxed Notre Dame than you ever will buy a rumor parents I'm reaching out to let you know that recent claims that I'm pursuing an exit strategy our total crap it's an annual strategy driven by our enemies to cause disruption to our program listen sometimes you have to save a player punk himself we as players we all want to always do what we can't get out get out on the field but we have seen blame in that decision is ultimately made by doctors correct it's going to be if he if that kid is out there on the field on Sunday night it would be unbelievable all right one more piece of business. This is a disgraceful business it appeals in many cases to the lowest common denominator a denominator of people's humanity and so I get why harbaugh feels like he has any spoken to him about this very issue before in the past this comes up every single year and every single year he feels Mike once telling us that when he got cancer people were negatively recruiting against him they were sending out letters to prospective players telling them that the diagnosis was actually worse than he was letting on New England potentially winning seven titles isn't GonNa make any higher anymore highly of him that if he goes somewhere else and wins the championship and gets passed and that it's something that matters final word on this shift Len Baker Mayfield took Amethi officiating after the Browns last laws knowing he'd be fine we'll tell you why he's talking about the long stop it's get up on Espn they were college football coach you need to win now and you need to prepare for the future and you can only do that with great players you know what else even if he was winning these guys would be negatively recruiting saying Oh look and that man is tiger woods and he is and forego nine birdies on the day yesterday six hundred sixty four he has a share of the lead pets mahomes is right when he is healthy we see him go into New England New England literally didn't one time and they lost by three I'm so why would you even rhys putting Patrick mahomes out there to possibly leave injuring himself further doesn't make a word he's ready to play but he's not ready we'll see why leave because realistically speaking you're going to go up and beat Bella check and the defense that they haven't he looks like he's Tom Brady thinks he probably can do something like that and negatively recruit by the way I don't even have an agent or representative I happen to have in Michigan man sitting at the table here we'll start off with you what do you make of this letter on Car Insurance we're very busy but you know what I insist we talk about golf and here's why them taking you to the zone championship in Japan like he has to answer it in every single year grates on his nerves more of more and every single Europe becomes a bigger and bigger challenge and this is a year in which is coming up with the trying to get just to say I think that the wording in the letter is unusual Jim is an unusual man it just it but I think that the business negative recruiting I remember Bobby Bowden on my show Egypt. forty-three is ludicrous ludicrous. I don't think that he would do it I think the fact I don't mean that I'd say there's no chance he'd do it I mean the notion of doing focus on the things that matter most no more wasting your time on tasks that you could be automated because that's exactly what Zappia was built to do just go to our special link get the top is brought to you by Geico fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more the NFL is dying for him now I mean this is a reality guys they are his enemies. If you've been doing this all right we are just getting started it would be crazy green is going to go to Chicago now John Win a champion warriors talking about to Alpha's okay to Alpha and I'm telling you right now testing a finger Zap can help Zappia is the easiest way to automate your work it connects all your business software and handles work for you so you can what a show from Kyrie did you see the numbers he put up last night you see the last shot of the game you need to see it all and you will all that in our first fifteen minutes at times is is hard especially when you're wasting hours every day moving data from emails to spreadsheets to your crm to wherever else shouldn't that kind of stuff just happen without you last time around one lead the tour championship last year which he won as we continue has Cam Newton already played his last game for the Carolina Panthers Answered Dude that notify your team so they can act fast on every opportunity and that is just scratching the surface Zappa your supports more than fifteen hundred business applications so the possibility MWR Toronto admitting it's been a while woods has great results playing Japan is five previous appearances he's finished in the top fifteen in all of them Futa stop even when he's in the midst of two Monster Games they lose the game against Penn State and to your point when a monster game with Notre Dame this weekend you're going to be right here but here's my thing greeny in case you're wondering if he's in the lead the zone zone is now the fifth major that's crap the best shot on tour since the two thousand eighteen enemies it does speak to paranoid but sometimes paranoid people are right and he does have to worry about recruiting because more important than how well he coaches is how good a player can get in and use the bigger issue to that recruiting matters and this speculation is going to be out there and it's probably easier to address it this way then try to address it player by player I do think the way it's despite using crap and thin UPI your dot com slash get up connect the apps you use most and let's Zap take it from there zapping your lets you instantly engage with leaves send them to a crm or spread we are today coming up at Cam Newton's heels the questions grow louder and Carolina Willie start will they sit are willing play elsewhere Sheffield has got an through through all of those if you don't have to worry about these rumors at schefters talking about if you win because if our ball was winning he wouldn't have to worry about any of the OAS he gonNA leave you don't have the luxury to pick one ready win already I think he's just trying to put it to bed once and for all say anot leaving on not going anywhere and stuff bringing it up yeah I think you're all right that question and many more I'm looking right at shefty from reading is coming up growing a business these are virtually endless and best of all it's easy to build the exact solution you need in minutes without writing code or asking developer for help right now through November try for your free by going to our special links Zappia dot com slash getup that Z..

Testimony Transcripts, Facebooks New Logo & Space-Aged Wine - Tuesday, November 5th, 2019

"Today is Tuesday November fifth for the first time. We're getting the full look at what was said in some of the closed-door impeachment interviews and it's election day in some states why it might matter to everyone one in the country plus facebook's new logo a skip trump jokes button on Netflix and why why was sent to space welcome welcome to the newsworthy. All the day's news in less than ten minutes fast. They're fun and on the go. I'm Erica Mandy. Thanks so much for being here. You're ready let's do this. We're getting our first look. At what exactly has been said behind closed doors. During the impeachment inquiry lawmakers released the full transcript from the testimonies of two people and more transcripts are expected today. Here's what we have. So far the first transcript shows what Maria you'll von Vich told congressional investigators last month in nine hours of testimony. Yes the transcript is a few hundred pages long you've out of which is the former. US Ambassador to Ukraine and she was forced out of her job back in May. It's significant. She was in Ukraine because this whole investigation started over. President trump pressuring Ukraine's president to investigate his political rivals. Well according to the transcript of the testimony you've told lawmakers she felt threatened by president trump. NPR report she also says she was worn by a senior Ukrainian official to quote. Watch my back and that. US diplomats suggested she tweet her support for president trump to try and smooth things over ultimately she was pushed out of her job and another top official said her treatment quote raised alarm bells. That was revealed in the second transcript released yesterday. This one from Michael mckinlay's testimony. He's the former senior adviser to Secretary of State My peyot and he described you Ivanovich treatment as bullying McKinley even said that was part of the reason. He decided to resign from his job. Democrats say this is just more proof that president trump was using his power for his own personal and political gain and while Republicans have asked for the full transcripts to be released. Some you said Monday. They now feel dumb. Have too much control over which transcripts get released and when as president trump. He says there was no wrongdoing. That he doesn't even we know you Yvonne of edge and the transcripts should not be believed and one more thing for White House officials ignored subpoenas yesterday. They were no shows for closed door testimony yesterday take they were apparently following White House orders and they include a top White House lawyer and advisor to Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney mortem today. It's election day today in some cities and states across the country and all eyes are on a few key races that experts thing could offer hints. About how the public feels on certain issues right now as well as next year's presidential election the AP reports a couple of the key races are in Kentucky and Mississippi voters will be choosing their governors in fact president trump. I'm Paul Dally in Kentucky just last night to show his support for the Republican candidate. Keep in mind both Kentucky and Mississippi are solidly Red States. So the question is will they continue.

Sometimes I say stuff's important he like you say it's important because a lot of things are reporting this what I'm about to tell you. This segment is very important. The deep state is in the swamp rats involved in the whole spying operation on trump. That's about to be exposed henceforth the reason for the impeachment probe job the fake Whistleblower Gate Muller Gate Collusion Gate. All the fake gates used against trump. The hoax. These hoaxes keep happening for reasons because they don't want something to come out. I'M GONNA I'M GONNA start with the lead here. I'm not going to bury it and then I'm GonNa get into it and I'm GonNa explain you at the lead. The lead is this what the deep status in the government don't want you to know. Is that the spying operation on President. Trump may have been financed just by the US government itself. Oh wait time so I I'll play it out for you. We're going to go there. We set it up but how does that differ. Why is that a big deal? And how is it different from what we've heard before what we've been told previously based on a tremendous amount of research done by me and others and I've been holding this for a long time and comfortable with it now was that yeah the operation. Despite on trump to the FBI the Pfizer Court Hillary Clinton and fusion. A lot of it was financed by Hillary Clinton enright Joe or payments to a law firm Perkins Kuu either turn paid fusion ladies. Gentlemen what if I told you that some of this may have been financed by the US government. I'm in itself. Okay let's go so let's go to this piece in the federalist by an excellent researcher a fantastic thicke investigative journalist Margot Cleveland. WHO's broken a lot of information on his folks? The show notes a must read today. Go to Bongino DOT COM subscribe to the newsletter. Her this story will be in there. It'll be attached to the podcast on my website to Bungee DOT COM SCOOP MARGOT CLEVELAND THE FEDERALIST CIA and FBI informant. It was a Washington Post source for Russia Gate Smears. She's talking about Stefan Helper. Now remember the lead. I laid it out and advance was the. US government actually financing and pay for spying operation against a political opponent of Barack Obama breath. Oh we haven't heard that one yet. Have we know what they're hiding. Why are they hiding? Stephan Haufer now from from the Margot Cleveland piece where they write about the fun helper. The federal justice learn that the now outed. CIA and FBI. Informant the font. How but we know the guy who was spying? Being on behalf of the government on the trump team tried to spy on Popadopoulos and page that he also served as a source for Washington Post reporter. David Ignatius remember the same guy. I who wrote the story about Mike. Flynn call with the Russian Soi. David Ignatius seems to know a lot of people show. Yes providing more evidence that the intelligence community has co-opted the press to push anti-trump conspiracy theories in addition and email recently obtained by the federalist from the five connected. Christopher Andrew Brag that his longtime longtime friend David Ignatius has the inside track on Flynn which adds further confirmation of this conclusion. So we now know. According to Margo Cleveland's reported that Stefan Helper a US government spy by who we know was interacting with the trump team for the purpose of gaining information on the trump team to spy on them for the Obama Administration. Now we know that how Perez well may have not only been involved in the operation to take down trump but also in the operation to takedown. Flynn that we knew. I already know if you listen to show. How is an integral figure in the attempt to take down? Mike Flynn as well. But what's new here. Air Is that how per may have been a source for David Ignatius From The Washington Post David Ignatius from the Washington Post by the way who who again printed a story and had access to Flynn's phone call to the Russian ambassador. Now how does this all tie in to my my lead here. That was the government actually financing some of this stuff what are the additional suspected. Sources producer Sir Joseph for David Ignatius of the Washington. Post one of the suspects is a guy named James Baker not not the James Baker Acre at the FBI who was calling his lawyer legal guy in the FBI. Not Dad James Baker. There's another James Baker a a military official who works at the office of net assessments. which is a cute title for an operation that basically pays intelligence login figures they basically are like a prop arm for the for the CIA? I don't know any other way to say all right. But it's got a cutesy name. Joe Office of Net assessment. Aspen sounds like they're running spreadsheets. Or something on excel spreadsheets on the number of dog toys. Someone sold off assessments. They always have those kind of name. There are never cool names right. It's kind of like a Blink Operation Spitfire twenty two. Isn't that office of net assessment. So you don't pay attention to what's going on. Yeah that's good name so yeah right so now we know that this guy who runs the office of net assessments which works with the CIA to pay people like helper also may have been a source in in the take down of Mike. Flynn using media. Tools like David Ignatius of the Washington Post. We know how for May have been a source to again. What's the lead here? Does the government actually paying for this operation. So why are they hiding helper. Why is everybody in the media so obsessed with hiding how per remember the when when the story first broke the New York Times? He's not really a spy. Yeah yeah he's an undocumented government forman remember all these articles left is freaking out helpers. Not A spy. He's not a spy is an undocumented undocumented workplace in former band member the euphemism game bed. He's just fine folks spy forever. Yeah remember that the whole dance alpers helpers how helpers right very good why were they hiding helper let's go to this Washington Times piece which will be in the show notes. It's an older piece. That's the benefit to my show notes by the way we don't only include today's articles we include older the articles that are now relevant again today by row in scarborough who's done tremendous work at the Washington Times on this headline loose contracting practices. This is a Pentagon office wastes millions whistle blower punish Dan. What the heck you're talking about the government paying the spy on trump? We thought it was Hillary doing it house any of this related Laden. Oh Man let's take a little snippet from that piece by Rohan Scarborough and the Washington Times and see how this May in fact be related to the government payments used to spy on Donald trump quote from the Roman scarborough piece seven helper the professor became an FBI informant to spy on the trump ABC campaign failed to document the research. She did as a contractor on four Pentagon studies worth one million dollars and investigation found. Wow alpers getting a lot of money. It's crazy eared. The Department of Defense Inspector General's report exposes loose contracting practices at the Pentagon's office of net assessment. Gosh that's crazy how that keeps creeping up the same kind of problems reported by an analyst Adam Levinger who we reported on the past the office of net assessments later accused this whistleblower Levinger reporting on these payments to help her and others of mishandling sensitive if data and he's been suspended without pay. Wow so the office of net assessment where this Guy Baker works works James Baker who is suspected to be a source in the attack on. Mike Flynn through. The Washington. Post was paying Haufer who is also suspected affected of being a source for David Ignatius of the Washington. Post crazy how that would happen banker halpern net assessments. We Now know office of net assessments was was paying how for money and a whistle blower named Adam Levinger who exposed some of these payments for these faulty reports that how per was giving them that the to whistle blower was suspended at Joe. I thought we were told. Whistle blowers are to be beatified satified in sainted. They are never to be questioned. Whistle blowers no suspended suspend whistleblowers. We're just told that this whistle blower we not joe that this guy is to be sainted. He's to be promoted from priests to Bishop Cardinal Hope to say immediately now we find out an actual whistleblower exposing payments to halpern others in the office of net. Ed Assessments ridiculous payments. For a whole lot of money the government runs the office of net assessments. Folks our government your tax dollars dollars that he was suspended while remember that guy where they suspended him they said he disclosed sensitive data and I wasn't ncis or others in the report it said he did not disclose sensitive data and they deleted the not kind of a big delete. Remember that show. Yeah do Yep Yeah Adam. Levinger disclosed disclose sensitive data. The reports said he did not disclose sensitive data. They forgot to put the not in there. It's kind of like saying Joe robbed a bank and leaving out. The Joe did not robbed the bank like we left. It did not part out of it Kinda changes the story just a little bit little just a Tad. I gotTa Tell You As the UNBUCKLE UNBUTTON. I'm Bud Zeman. If there's an awful lot of cooks cooks in the kitchen here dude you know what I mean in this story. You're also aw I'm kind of having a little bit of difficulty following you. You know what I mean. Okay what I don I do. Not I ask you to be the ambassador for a reason I understand. Let me tie this up for you because I do have a loaded newsday today. I want to be sure you see exactly where I'm going with it. All right thank you. So let's just lay out where we are. We now know the government. The United States Government do wedding leading office of net assessment has been paying people for reports. Okay fine I have no problem with that intelligence reports we know one of the recipients of that those those payments were stefan how prefer grotesque amount of money we know a whistle blower in that office has sense the problem with some of those payments and the veracity the the information however was providing for that money. Okay get it. Hey we're paying this guy a lot of money this report Kinda suck okay. We now know that. In that office of net assessment it's one of the military officials running it. This Guy Baker is suspected to be a leak or David Ignatius. WHO's the same guy who wrote The Washington report that took down? Mike Flynn okay. We now know how per may be a leaker to Baker. I mean excuse me maybe leaker. To Ignatius to based on Margot Cleveland's latest report now. Let's put the Cherry on top of this little bad boy. Thanks Bro Remember this Kathleen Half Ren- Cavaliers note so Kathleen Cavalier is a State Department official. Who in October before the FIS war meets with Christopher Steele the alleged author of the dossier? We know it's true. It's really not the only author we know it's the Simpson Blank summit. I'm going to get to this at another other time. Someone else may have had some input into the dossier we know Chris Glenn Simpson did but still meets with the State Department official. He's alleged to be the author Through the trump dossier and he says to the Kathleen Kavulich the State Department Rep. would she takes a note under. I've circled for you. Hear that one of Simpson's sources it is a guy named Trubnikov Trubnikov Trubnikov. You mean the Russian intelligence officer so let me get the St. Christopher Steele was being paid paid by Glenn Simpson and Hillary is claiming now steal that one of the sources for the negative information on trump and the dossier that peop- tape and other resolve. Aw garbage that it's a Russian Intel officer connected to Putin. Isn't that fascinating. I don't Russian. Collusion was a Republican thing. Apparently it's a Democrat thing to steal but we'll leave that one for or another day again. What does this have to do with the G. paying potentially for spying paying for spying trying to hide it and being very very very concerned about how let's go to the series of tweets by a great investigative reporter for the daily Caller Chuck Roster tweeted out a while ago? But they are definitely worth earth your time now so. This was chuck back in May may seventeen. Here's a series of three tweets. I'm going to read to you the the key in this and let me see the leave these up for the second you well. I'm GonNa tell you where I'm going before I read these. Okay Trubnikov Ladies and gentlemen. The Russian Intel connected. Guy Was not steals. Buddy Trubnikov was someone else's buddy. Who May I suggest may have had a larger role role in the dossier? Then they're leading on. And if this guy who had a larger role in the dossier was being paid by the office of net assessments I the US government all ladies and gentlemen. We had a big problem. Don't we okay. Let's read these tweets by Chuck. Ross about Trubnikov remember steele says. It's his buddy. Because he wrote the dossier Joe Right Right. Winking Not Chuck Russ quote from Nick off also has links to Stefan how for all we he does. You mean the guy being paid by the government that guy how per tap Trubnikov contribute to a Pentagon study on China Russia issues. How per was a contractor at the time for the Pentagon's office of net assessment? Crazy crazy. How that happened K.? He used the offer to the right policy papers to get close to George. Popadopoulos chuck goes on how per also hosted in a rage trip nick off to speak at the Cambridge Intelligence. The seminar two thousand twelve in two thousand fifteen triptych off had visa problems. Gee I wonder why. He's a Russian Putin connected Intel Guy Prior to the two thousand fifteen visit but those has got cleared up I wonder how that happens one. Final tweet helpers role in hosting Travnik Office significant for a couple of reasons. How far resigned from the Cambridge Intelligence Seminar in December two thousand sixteen over what he claimed was undo Russian influence so stupid he reportedly? What are they concerned? That Russian operatives were given too much of a platform you mean the platform you got money from the US government to pay to host that Russia Russia. You mean platform folks. This all making sense to you. Now like are the bells and whistles going off yeah eight. US government paid spy. How per was always now alleged to be a source for the media to be spying for the government by the way being paid by the office of Net assessment assessments were a whistleblower discovered a lot of this and was suspended? I believe in their effort to hide in that same guy being paid by the taxpayer remember. We Thought Hillary painful which is bad enough love but now you paid for it. How her who is tight with nick off? I believe how bers information from Nikolov may have somehow found its way into the dossier after. How was the one getting paid by the government to develop said sources ladies and gentlemen if if that's the case now it makes perfect sense why the Democrats are eager still to make sure this is the steele dossier because that's bad enough? It's bad enough that Hillary paid a for an Intel Guy Christopher Steele to gin up information on track off. They Interviewed Review Chris. Theo after that interview joe the report was delayed. Yup Do you think it's possible that Christopher Steele may have noted in the interview with investigators looking into the spy gate fiasco that some of the information he came he said came from Trubnikov may have came from hopper paid for by U Aw Elizabeth Elizabeth. I'm just putting it out there folks. You heard it here. I I just want to show you a headline from the liberal media. Wrap it up with this from. Vox and Fox have V.. Vox like Victor Victor. Remember when they freed out with how presume came out. Here's the headline spy gate. The false allegation at the FBI had a spy in the trump campaign explained all about Stefan Halpern. Opin say. He didn't spy on trump. Here's what actually happened as by folks. They're freaking out because of how was being paid by O.. N. A. and a whistle blower suspended the hide it to spy on the trump team and the information steele saying came from Jamaica off actually came from helper and made it into the dossier. Oh boy do we have a problem. We have the US government. We have our taxpayer money. Being used to lie to a Pfizer court on behalf of a political candidate to take down another one. The verdict is in. And that's bull folks May Have to bleep the second part that. That's okay. Thanks Buddy. You can leave me asking for the bleep in there too. Thanks okay thank. Thanks for working with me on.

I work with both of the participants in this kind of on outnumbered. I don't have any. I don't make my politics personal you you know I. Just don't I've worked with them. They're they're fine but I going to take the side of one of them on this because the other side I just think is mis- misleading you without further ado. This was a debate going on outnumbered. About Joe Biden John Kerry Joe Biden son Hunter Biden an associate CEO. John Kerry Devon Archer. They're suspicious business dealings and Ukraine with this natural gas company and Watch the response to Steve Hilton from Marie. Har- fubo uses this Goto. Line us all the time. I'm not sure she knows what evidence means but she keeps saying every everytime she feels uncomfortable. She says there's no evidence I want. Oh you don't watch it. They they want to actually after this but this could have got good. They should've let go to longer check this out. There's a further element of corruption that needs to be looked into and again something that Ukraine should investigate. Which is John Kerry's corruption? He was secretary of state that the time he was also involved in channeling money to Ukraine. His former chief of staff Dolph was hired by soon. After Hunter Biden went on the board they hide John Kerry's former chief of staff while he was secretary of state state paid him money from his. MMA could have come from the US tax payer that money is circle back to Democratic senators. Who then right to the administration calling for more money to be sent to all of that needs to be investigated John Kerry's evidence that that I just or evidence department all oh covering up the corruption to defending are you are you much? Billions of the old counties. We're talking about the news. Please don't accuse me of covering something up up you want because there's no way old all. Oh that thing would nuclear. That was all over the the twitter yesterday. Well let me just via made. And I'm by the way I'll say and I'll open invitation real debate Marie on this topic anytime This is not here to defend yourself and unlike liberals I don't like to engage in East kinda these things especially with co workers if the bed but I you know she she wants come on the show. I'm happy debater on him. So let's be clear about this. We know for a fact we call evidence data points. I don't I don't know what Euphemism Marines I miss confused about. Whatever it is we know for a fact that Hunter Biden wasn't fact hired by a natural gas company and Ukraine while Joe Biden was in the administration is vice president assign nine as the point man on Ukraine and actually discussing natural gas? None of that is in dispute. You can dispute that but that would be just simply foolish I. I don't know how else to describe. Those accepted facts. Okay we know one hundred Biden was hired without any of the requisite skills on the board to me the requirements any board member would have to add value to that company. Hunter Biden had no skills in Ukraine. No skills the natural gas arena at all. Nothing hundred Biden was clearly hired because of his last name again not in dispute among reasonable people. A fact we also know at Associated John John Kerry Devon Archer was also on the board. I'm going to get to John's Solomon piece in a minute of burris Ma the natural gas company and we also know now pursuant. The emails was uncovered by John. Solomon that Devon Archer was actually seeking meetings with John Kerry and other people in the State Department and other Barack Obama lawyers and other representatives to to make a lot of this investigation go away poof into Barista for corruption while hundred Biden Devon Archer and associated. John Kerry's on the board. I say to Marie you you suggesting that there's no evidence doesn't mean there's no evidence there's no evidence you saying. No evidence is actually true. And you attacking Steve like that. It's kind of pretty horrible. And I'll debate you at any time you want a rematch on onto five or some. I'm ready anytime. Yeah you're going to get a challenge. Any of the fact Steve put out there. You're going to get a blood. Maybe yeah I mean. What do you do the bank records for the payments? Maybe the only person media hasn't seen this stop and I worked for the State Department. It's not an what does that mean I don't and with that means that you worked for the state. So the facts are you worked for the state. So Biden didn't work for Barack Obama. I don't care how these two things are coralling. A great you you work for the State Department even worse that you're unfamiliar. Apparently with the evidence somebody say good for Steve Way to hit that. Hit back hard all the time now John Solomon yesterday another tremendous piece of reporting by John. WHO's just been knocking it out of the ballpark lately? I'll have this article up at the show notes. Please look at it. John has been just all over this. He's got his new WHO Senator John Solomon reports. This would be up in the show notes again you subscribe to a newsletter. I'll send them right to you breaking yesterday. I don't know if Marie read this or she didn't happy to debate it anytime. Any time. November Four Twenty Nine Thousand Nine Headline John Solomon Hundred. Biden's Ukraine gas firm press the Obama Administration to end the corruption allegations memo. Show folks. You understand nothing you've been told about. Now you understand why Ukraine Gate whistle blower gate is such a big deal. You get that right. Remember the Golden Rule it Democrats always Joseph always accuse you of what they're doing so now we know the prior segment Tien in here that we may have actually paid tax payers the office of net assessments to produce information from Russians against trump. That was false. I would call that collusion now. Trump did it right. They did it. Ukraine Gate. Eight is there is a Ukraine gate about Biden and about the DNC working with Ukraine to impact the election target trump. But they need you to believe it's about about trump's so they just make it up through the fake whistle blower but now we're finding out that the Ukraine gate story involving Biden and the hiring of his son. They're paying for his last name obviously to access the State Department. Joe What were we toll. We were told clearly by Joe Biden. I didn't talk to my son about this. We find out that was alive. We find that the sun is already admitted to talking to his dad about it and the dad has already admitted talking. You aside about it what we also find out that all of these claims by the Democrats said this hiring of hundred Biden and John Kerry's buddy John's homey there Devon Archer homes that it was no. Oh big deal about. They were not trying to leverage their contacts in the Obama Administration. Joe It was just straight up deal. Business deal because Devon Archer and Hunter Biden Arches so indispensable and qualified to be board members on natural gas company that they were hired for their mad skills. uh-huh we find out John Salomon's peace. Let's take little portion of the piece here. That hundred Biden's names specifically doc was invoked by Barack Obama as a reason that the State Department should help them say what according to a series of email exchanges among US officials. Again end for Marie. We would call this evidence according to a series of email exchanges among US officials trying to arrange the meeting the subject line for the email exchange simply red berets MMA. So let's get this straight. Keep that up a second here. So the BARISTA's risk people that hired Hunter Biden's kids specifically invoked the hiring of Biden and his name to get immediate State Department people. Wow that's crazy. I thought that didn't happen quote per our conversation station. This is one of their email exchanges. Karen Tra- Montano a blue star strategies. That's a legal. Firm representing charisma strategy firm requested a meeting meeting to discuss with Novelli. That's a US government representative from the State Department alleging corruption a February twenty four twenty sixteen e mail between state officials read quote. She noted that too high profile citizens are affiliated with the company including Hundred Biden as a board member SA. That's not possible. Joe that email can't be real right. That's not evidence. Clearly it's made up right now. We were told specifically no no. It's not no. I'm sorry as the audience budget. You gotta see corrections whether or not that. We need a crazy. You're about clearly kept you know it's real. The State Department is clearly being contacted acted by a political tactic strategy. Legal representative from Burris MMA trying to get a meeting with the State Department to clear up a charge against charisma corruption charge while hundred Biden and different archer are sitting on the board of Berea crazy. Weird we were told. That doesn't happen happen Joe. That didn't happen recess. There's no evidence so that email clearly burris right. There's no clearly a fake okay. But he gets to the second portions of this piece. I get the oiler ways. It's like an infomercial away. There's more there's more evidence not air quote evidence.

Remember folks keep this all in mind. We were told the real Ukraine scandals about trump and the deal non deal fro quid. Quid pro quo. That didn't even happen. Because we have the transfer we were told. That's the real scandal just like we were told. Russian collusion was about trump to now we find out. The real scandal may be hundred Biden using daddy's name and Burris mother to try to get interviews and access to the State Department to clear up a corruption investigation into the company. He was working for crazy. Well here's takeaway number two about another well connected cat. Sitting on this Barista. Aboard Company. Being investigated by the Ukrainians as apparently Joe Biden's pressuring the Ukrainians Ukrainians to fire the prosecutor looking into it. Wow take away number to quote from the John Solomon piece. But the records do indicate indicate that one hundred Biden's fellow American board members Charisma Devon Archer Associated John Kerry folks a very close one secured a meeting on March second two thousand sixteen with Secretary of State John Kerry himself. How did that happen? In addition to serving on the Barilla aboard Archer and hundred mine were partners at an American phone firm known as Rosemont Seneca. Here's an email quote David Archer coming to seize s today. The Secretary of state of three. PM needs someone to meet and greet him at C. Street an email from Kerry's office managers again. We recall that evidence folks. I'm just putting that dad there. S is shorthand frequently using. The stadium is to describe the secretary of state the member who don't state the reason for the meeting. I I thought I thought this stuff was happening. So let me be clear. This BURRIS MA hires associated John Carey in the son of Joe Biden while Joe Biden is the point man on Ukraine where Barista's located and discussing natural gas as his point man role as VP. Natural Gas Policy Prisms the natural gas company. Joe Biden's claim there's nothing to see here folks Sh- nothing's going on as the Barista lawyers are invoking the very name of Joe Biden's son on to get meetings with the State Department to make the investigation at the Barista go away and while the other board member connected to the Secretary of state at the time John Kerry is is getting some VIP meet and greet John Kerry himself as the investigation. The push to make it go away is going on. Don't worry folks this is all about. Donald trump all about trump and the quo prayed quo. Quo Non quit non-pro on quo non deal. It's that's what it's all about again. We would call this evidence. I play that cut again of Stephen. Burri debating baiting on outnumbered. But I don't WanNa waste your time. I think there's a fundamental misunderstanding at the end of that clip about what the word evidence Actually means now as I've said before because I believe in Fair Analysis and quality investigative work evidence is not proof series of data points and facts acting as evidence can be proof of a crime. Video evidence confessions fingerprints. DNA email chains tax. They can be proof if you meet that hurdle beyond a reasonable doubt. I'm not willing to suggest that yet. But suggesting that there's no evidence evidence of massive malfeasance and the hiring of Joe Biden's kin John Kerry's associate while a corruption investigations going on the company that hired them and while they're squeezing reason the US government to make that corruption investigation away while Joe Biden's on tape demanding the prosecutor looking into it fired. Suggesting there's evidence I is is so beyond ridiculous ridiculous that I'm having a hard time believing we're having this conversation. It's gotten that bad folks and working king at the State Department make evidence not evidence. Okay can you imagine. Imagine it was some like the worked at the Secret Service. Imagine God forbid they had a lapse in a security plan or something just broke today. No I worked at the Secret Service. The report is not true but it doesn't matter. Facts are facts all right go to some good news. Finally we know that the media is GonNa spin anyway but this is a great story you know a couple weeks back. I like to give you the real news not the nonsense and I I told you a story. It's a quick story just kind of sum it up for you but I was in the gym. I don't know about two months ago and a friend of mine. Good friend Nice Guy but he came up to me and he was like. I'm not worried about at the election. Trump's GONNA win in a landslide and I went on a bit of a kind of a rant there for five minutes saying how that's absolute most dangerous counterproductive thing you can say right now. I'm not knocking. The guy he didn't mean mean. Anything buys a nice guy and I asked for permission to use it on the show and he was fine with it and I got a lot of nasty email. Dan Don't be like Debbie doubt folks. I'm not a Debbie Abi Downer listen at all I am just trying to give you reality so you're not prepared for unreality like the Clintons. Were remember member the Clinton team we're GONNA win in a landslide. Trump's two chances of winning is the Washington Post that crystal is article are approaching zero. They didn't even go to Wisconsin. What happened they lost? I I need you to be a little anxious and I said to you when I get the good news. I'll give it to you because back then. The time the polling data folks really wasn't that great and I'm GonNa put this out there again for like two thousand time on the show but I want you to hammer this your skull yes. The statewide polling data was off badly in the last election. And I'm going to be in this piece. I'm going to discuss. Why in a second? But I'm going to suggest to at the data. This time will be better. The data was bad in the last trump election in two thousand sixteen. I know Iran in that cycle. I experienced it firsthand because a lot of trump voters were first time voters I knocked on doors. I used to pay you. Get A walk list when you run for office right that. Walk list of diehard Republican voters. Why do you knock on die hard Republican voters before primary? Because they're the only ones that can vote in the Republican primary. I was passing all these houses with trump signs. Is I call my campaign manager. Why isn't this name on the list? I'm wasting time. I'm passing ten trump houses. You screwed up the list. She said to me Dan. I didn't screw the list up. Those is people do not vote. They're not on the list so I started knocking on the doors with the trump signs that weren't on the list of Republican voters. And sure enough. She was right. Hello Ma'am do you vote never in my life. Why do you trump signed? Because I'm voting. Now that's why the state polls were so wrong. Oh that's not the case now. Those people voted in the last election. They're going to be counted now now. I'm not suggesting the polls are spot on. There's always a massive trump undercount for a lot of reasons but but I don't want you to be fooled by this forgetting nor the no no don't ignore the polls be a little anxious that where you'll go out and grab ten friends vote. Gosh if there's one thing I wanNA be proven wrong on its at my anxiety is misplaced. Please prove me wrong and winning a landslide. How would be the greatest day of my life? I'll retake replay. This cut having said that though there is some good news out there piece by Breitbart in the show notes. It's definitely worth your time folks. Forget the national not a national election. Mashal poser relevant Dow. Those you should forget you need to pay attention to the swing swing state polls. It's an electoral college election. It is not a national election for president. That's a myth. It is a series of fifty state elections that determine the national selected. It's not a national. The popular vote does not matter. John Nolte great piece of ever four two thousand nineteen twenty twenty any swing state polls show why. The media really watched trumpet beached. Now I have three screen shots from this piece that worth your time. I let me tell you the good news the good news. This is this here. Screen shot number. One remember. There's always a bit of a trump undercount. He's in a lot of trouble. Joe Biden and others and Bernie Sanders trump in the swing states quote around around the swing state polling from the far left New York Times. Show explains why the media's desperate to see trump impeached among likely voters. Remember what I just said folks. Those likely voters were not there in two thousand sixteen. They never voted. But they'll be there now now. We know them among likely voters trump is losing by only two points. It's two quid. Pro Jo and Florida Arizona Wisconsin folks well within the margin of error in Pennsylvania and Michigan. Slow Joe is up by only a single point. Trump bleeds North Carolina by two. That is very good news. Here's where it gets even better because Joe Biden is this one hundred seventy see how. The show's weaving together. It's going to crush him. Yeah Bernie Sanders. Only beat trump in one of those two states Michigan by three points. They're tied in Wisconsin. Trump Beats Bernie by four in Arizona. North Carolina our line of Bhai one in Pennsylvania and two in Florida. Nice huge numbers there. He's still down to by Basil folks. I'll give you the reason why I think there's a bit of an undercount here. Bottom line is stay anxious but I don't want anybody to panic. We're still in decent shape. Here's a second. Take Jake Way. It gets even worse for some of the other front runners against trump as for the current Democratic Front Runner Elizabeth Warren trump lease by two to four and all of those states Arizona where they're died. That's not scary enough for the media. Latest polling trump winning Nevada a state. He Lost Austin Twenty. Sixteen this at least the double money is it coming. You can't go a single but we have uh people can miss and model names. Missing Monthly Guy said it reminds him of his youth. Yeah now I really liked this piece a lot not continues and he gives four reasons. Why even with those solid numbers within the margin of error in the Swing States and crushing Warren? In the swing states maybe adding Nevada. Why that may be undercount to check out these four points? I'm not gonNA read every sentence of it but it's worth your in detail. Read the piece. It's up at the show today. Reason number one. It may be an undercount here. Polling US historically underestimated trump strength by about five points. Now folks factoring in what I just told you about how. How likely voters even if that's just two or three points trumpers either winning or tied and every one of those states okay number? Two trump is doing remarkably well in the middle of impeachment hearings will almost certainly and with his acquittal in vindication if not in the house then in the Senate great point takeaway number three while by might have to have the best shot at stopping trump. Everyone knows it's only on paper. Biden's a terrible campaigner. The fact is some looted at least three foreign countries countries that we know of is a huge liability. Well said well said take away number four. Most importantly chumps tonight even out competing right now. He's not out on the trail. He's not debating he's talking about his record as accomplishments. He's it's not a contrasting himself with his far left opponent and he's not doing what he's doing. Best selling his vision is ideas is common sense love for America. We know he's a great guy. He's not doing that now. He's he's busy being president and fighting off this ridiculous impeachment which is going to end badly for the Democrats in other words folks. This may get a whole whole lot worse for the Democrats little bit of good news though. Let that puts you at ease just smile a little bit. No it's never the catastrophe the media wants you to believe it is but stay anxious. Anxious people win elections complacent people get their butts kicked. Don't forget that oh I did not want to forget this either. This huge project Veritas James. O'Keefe he's always out there breaking news on CNN otherwise he's the captain of hidden video.
