Fresh update on "major league baseball" discussed on Bloomberg Daybreak Asia
"Jorge mas says that there's a chance that they would play barcelona to allow lean on messy to have a farewell to his fans some believe it will happen in as in twenty five twenty six when they reopened cam no which is undergoing extensive reserve renovations major league baseball postseason is under way it's the wild card round earlier the texas rangers shutting out the tampa epa may raise

all best of three series i'm dan sportsman that's your bloomberg world sports update back to brian all right thanks very much dan will have the jury selection in the trial of former f t x c e o sam bankman freed is facing fraud in a number of charges joining us now is ava benny morrison bloomberg legal reporter uh... to bring us the latest so let's talk a little bit about that process today was there anything unusual in the jury selection it was a really large jury pool that the judge drew and there was a all of uh... understanding questions they usually ask jurors do you know anyone and yes the uh... but there are also a few that were related to sam bankman trade and crypto in general and when people said that will reply that they had invested in lost money crypto in or they had a negative attitude about crypto they tend to tended to be the jurors that were so what are the next steps here as well and is there a jury not yet it was a really painstaking process today and we didn't finish selecting a jury so that will spill into tomorrow the judge did say that he wants to select twelve jurors and then six additional jurors who can step in if one of the permanent jurors is off sick or something happens to them as well and one of the things that really struck me today was the changes in some bankman phrase physical appearance it had been several weeks since we had seen him in person his bail was revoked in August and he's been in Brooklyn's detention center since then he looked considerably thinner he'd his messy black hair and his suit was almost hanging off him so it was really interesting to see the changes in his physical appearance in the late after this trial so he's pleaded not guilty and there's seven charges against him perhaps we can lay out a little bit some of these fraud and conspiracy charges for the audience sure so at the core of the allegations against sandbankman freed is that he used customer funds at Tx a crypto currency exchange that he founded and he used those customer funds for a affiliated hedge fund called Alameda research those funds were used for high risk trades to purchase real estate in the bahamas even to loan out billions of dollars to executives so the allegation here is that he lied to ftx customers about what he was doing with their money and he also lied to investors about the relationship between Alameda and ftx okay once we do get this trial underway how long is it expected to last and secondly what are the implications for confidence in currencies there was an indication that this trial could last up to six weeks although the judge joked today that a trial never lasts as long as the defense attorneys say it will so we are going to hear a lot of evidence I think about how ftx was being run behind the scenes and it's worth noting that ftx was one of the biggest cryptocurrency exchanges in the world at the time and we will hear from some you know big institutional investors as well about the kind of due diligence they did what banks and free told them about the financial health of ftx and the relationship between ftx and alameda so I think it's going to be a really a bit of a reckoning the for crypto industry forcing them to have a look at what led to this massive collapse of ftx which was long seen as a very sort of stable platform you mentioned that it was an interesting process uh with reviewing possible members of the jury uh and they were asked about their attitudes around did we learn much about um what general people's attitudes are about crypto we did uh i found it to be a really interesting process you put a bunch of everyday new yorkers in one room and learn about their different experiences i think when we're looking at crypto some of the things we heard was i um uh invested in crypto and i lost a lot of money or my brother um was almost financially ruined from crypto so i don't think that could be fair and impartial in this case uh one woman actually said her company had invested in ftx and alameda and lost a lot of money another man said he you know doesn't properly understand crypto his son tried to explain it to him and all he can think about is bernie madoff so he was excused as you could understand so there wasn't you know a general understanding of crypto but there were a few mentions in there absolutely so you know uh potential jurors are one thing but it's the wider public which are going to be transfixed by this and it's you know the second part of my question earlier was essentially how does this affect generally the whole industry and they protecting themselves from the negative vibes which may well come out of this trial i think difficult the collapse of ftx and the revelations and allegations that have come out about sam bankman freed and losing billions of dollars have been really damaging for the cryptocurrency industry in terms of their reputation i think it's given that crypto a bit of a bad stigma and the public the publicity and the interest around this trial won't towards helping that at all i think that there are a few people who uh... really interested crypto's in putting best foot forward essentially so i that think they will keep trying to do that and drive some positive PR around it in the wake of this trial one of the issues for sam bankman freed will be uh... i mentioned earlier that he's pleaded to not guilty but a lot of the others attached or around him have pleaded guilty and uh... some of them will be testifying a brief roundup roundup of that yes there are three key witnesses who are really at the heart of the government's this year nashad singh gary wong and caroline ellison these three were sam men fried closest associate by gary nashad helped uh... form f t x caroline was the CEO of Alameda Research and she also had a personal relationship with sam bankman freed so so it could get very tricky uh... in the area thanks so much for joining save any morrison bloomberg legal

A highlight from Orange Pilling Through Sport with Steven Nelkovski & Patrick O'Sullivan
"The beautiful thing about Bitcoin is if it works with baseball, it works with anything. If you think about value for value, the model, it changes everything. Right. Hello. How are you all? Hello from Lebanon. What a cool country this place is. It's really strange. As I travel around the world, sometimes I go to these places where you worry about the economic situation, you end up meeting the most amazing, incredible people, most amazing resilient people, and Lebanon is exactly that. So I cannot wait to get this film out. Anyway, welcome to the What Bitcoin Did podcast, which is brought to you by the legends at Iris Energy, the largest NASDAQ listed Bitcoin miner using 100 % renewable energy. I'm your host Peter McCormack, and today we have Perth Heat on the show. We've got CEO Stephen and chief Bitcoin officer Patrick, Patrick O 'Sullivan. I was going to try and say Stephen's name. I think it's Nelkowski, Nelkowski, I think Stephen Nelkowski. Danny, what is it? Nelkowski. We've never had Danny on an intro before. Nelkowski. Yes. CEO Stephen Nelkowski. Now I've known Stephen for quite some time. When we announced Rael Bedford, he'd already announced his Perth Heat Bitcoin project, and then I met him out in Miami. He gave me a jersey, and we've kind of been knocking back DMs on Twitter for this whole time sharing ideas, talking about what they're up to, what we're up to. There is so much alignment between the Perth Heat baseball team and what they're doing in Australia and what we're doing with Rael Bedford over in the UK. And so yeah, I've been keeping an eye on their progress, been impressed with everything they're doing. They're definitely a little bit ahead of us, but there's so much alignment between us and them. And I know not everybody loves the football side of things, but this Bitcoin and sports thing, I'm telling you, it's so important. It's important on so many levels, there's so many chances to orange pill people by meeting them where they're at. And I'm telling you, Bitcoin and sports is going to be big. So give me your feedback. Let me know what you think. I hope you enjoy the show. Absolutely loved it. Steve is a legend. Patrick is absolutely beavering away like a legend trying to get all the Bitcoin stuff going for them. I'm going to be nicking some of their ideas. Hopefully, we will have some cool ideas. They can nick as well. But yes, let me know your feedback. Let me know what you think. It's hello at whatbitcoindid .com. Welcome, brother. Good to be on. Who's your friend? This is the chief Bitcoin officer of the Perth Heat. You actually the chief Bitcoin officer? That's it. That's the title. Chief Bitcoin officer. That's all I do. That's what I'm trying to get Ben Ark to do for us. You know Ben Ark? Yes. He doesn't even like football. But he comes along. He gets the whole thing. Great role to have. Emerging role. Yeah. You saw that job ad for that Bulgarian team. Yeah. That's amazing. Yeah. We've got a call with them. Joe Hall's trying to get me to talk to them. But there's two upcoming Bitcoin football teams, young whippersnappers. The league is expanding quickly. We've had a couple of recent inquiries from teams in Europe wanting to speak about what we've done with the baseball team. But as we've said so many times on Twitter and in comments that the Bitcoin sports league is a lot closer than what most people think. There's a lot of interest. Yeah. You beat us to it. I think you beat us to it. We had a couple of weeks between us, I think. Was it that close? It was. There was a nose between, I think, the two announcements. We were early November. I think you were late November, early December, something like that. We're talking 21, aren't we? 21? 20 said? Yeah. It was 21. Because I think I announced - November 21? Yeah. I think I announced December 21. Yeah. And we took over the team in April 22. Yes. That's right. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. You just beat us. Justin. So many things have changed since then as well in so many ways. What we thought we'd be doing in two years has just dramatically changed so quickly. It's awesome. There's loads we can get into and we're going to. But let's just do a bit of background stuff just for people listening so we can build the picture of what we're doing. So, like, introduce yourself, what you do, and yourself. I know we know you're the Bitcoin officer, but like, and then just tell people about Perth Heat, who they are, and then we'll build from there. Yeah, easy. So my name's Steven. I'm the chief executive of the Perth Heat, who are Australia's most successful baseball team. We've won 15 national titles. We've had 34 players who have played Major League Baseball. We've got an exceptional relationship with the Tampa Bay Rays, who send us out six to each eight players Australian summer. And these are top end draft picks. So one of the players they sent us last season, Junior Caminero, is on the verge of playing in the big leagues right now. So they send us the best of the best in terms of their young talent. And we build a squad and we play a season in the Australian summer. We've got a history of winning. We've got a history of producing great players. We're also the Bitcoin baseball team. And it's been, yeah, it's been an incredible ride. How big is baseball in Australia? It's big. It's look, it's obviously we've got the big sports in terms of Aussie rules. You've got rugby. You've got strong national teams with the Australian cricket team. You've got the Socceroos, you've got the Matildas. So it's not a tier one sport. But in terms of the quality of the competition, if you look at the fact that Perth Heat have had 34 players who have played for the Heat and then gone on to play Major League Baseball, there's no other team or competition that could produce that sort of statistics. So if you looked at one of the football teams like the Perth Glory, they haven't had 34 players who have played in the Premier League. So it's the competition is extremely tough and would be one of the best winter leagues in the world, especially with our association with Major League Baseball. So they send players out to you to get game time. And they also scout players that you have got of your own. There's a bit of scouting. There's international scouts in every city. But the idea of sending them out to us is they will see how the players will react in a foreign environment, a different style of baseball, different time of year. How do these players go in an environment over Christmas, New Year? Some of them are coming back from injury. Some of them have had interrupted seasons. That's a good chance for some of them to also build game time. But it's a program now with Tampa. Then in the last five years, we've had five players already play Major League Baseball. Jacob Lopez was the last just a couple of weeks ago. And as I said, Junior Caminero is knocking the house down, his 27 home runs this year. It's just a phenomenal generational athlete. And what kind of crowds do you get? Yeah, they vary across the weekend. We play a series. So we'll play Friday night. We'll play two games on a Saturday. Two? Two games on a Saturday. And then we'll play another one on a Sunday. So there's four games in the space of 72 hours. And the crowd's roughly between 5 ,000 to 7 ,000 over the weekend. OK, wow. So two in a day. What kind of demands are put on the players? Well, it's different. So baseball, if you're a pitcher, the demands are extreme. Every time you throw the ball, it is logged. It is monitored. It is counted. If you're an outfield player or an infielder, one of the batters, then that's what you're built for. You're built to play every game. So all the pressure's on the pitcher? Pitchers, yeah. Good pitching will win you championships. You need a really strong pitching lineup to bring in the different times of the game. And that's the part of your lineup which you really have to monitor so carefully. Because you could start a series with a pitcher. And if he doesn't perform well, when you bring him out of the game, when you introduce someone else. And then if they don't perform well, how quickly do you run through your rotation knowing that you've got four games to get through? So there's a lot of analytics that we look at, we monitor. And as we said, that pitch count is very, very closely watched. I've been to a few baseball games. I've been to see the A's. I've been to see the Dodgers a few times. I've been to see probably your team. Yes. We went to the Yankees. Yeah, we went to the Yankees. It was too hot, wasn't it? Yeah, it was so hot. It was so hot. Our knees were burning. There's not many roofs on the stadiums, yeah? So you're sitting out in the sun, yeah, baking. But there's heat, but it was too hot. Our legs were in shorts, our legs were burning, so we just went and stood at the back and drunk beer. Then the Yankees get absolutely back. I think they were 10 down within two innings. It was like insane. Yeah, but it's a crazy game. It can be 10 down, and you can still win. My wife has now accepted that no matter how far in front we are in a game, she won't relax until that last out. You can be 6 -0 up, 8 -0 up, and you can still lose a game just like that. It's very, very different of football. In football, if you're 3 -0 up, it's effectively game over, yeah? But in baseball, a three -run lead, a four -run lead, it can change with just one pitch if a batter walks, and then suddenly things just change. It's taken a while to understand and to even get comfortable with it. When I first started in the role five years ago, baseball traditionalists would say, well, that's baseball. It's like, no, it's not. It's bad game management. But yeah, it's baseball. It happens in the big leagues. It happens in Australia, and sometimes it happens with Perth Heat. And so your wife, is that because she's got into the baseball, or she's planning for what your move's going to be like? Bit of both. She has to be into it, but I'm not a good loser at all. Yeah, I'm not probably the best person to speak to if we lose a game for a good 24 hours. After we lost the championship series, that 24 hours was probably four months. Mate, honestly, I know exactly how you feel. We lost three games last season in the league. We lost one cup game, and then we got thrown out of a cup because we played an illegible player should have been suspended, administrative error. Every single one of those, I was not good for 24 hours. I spent the next 24 hours saying, what did I do wrong to contribute to that? Even though it's the team and the manager, it's like, what could I have done more? Could we have prepared the team better? Did we not provide the right resources, or did we not get the balance of the roster correct? There's so many things that go through your mind, but yeah, I'm certainly not a good loser. Were you a Perth Heat fan before? No, with a surname like Neil Kobski, you grew up with a round ball in my household. I was a football fan from an early age. This is a true story. Before I took the role with Heat, I had not watched a baseball game from start to finish. I had not watched a full nine innings. I'd watched parts of a game, but I hadn't watched a whole game. That first year in charge was challenging because you'd be with corporate partners, and I didn't know all the rules, and something would happen during a game, and they'd ask, why did that happen? I'd scratch my head and say, I'd have to find out for you. I'm obsessed with it now. My wife loves watching players steal bases, just running from base to base or trying to steal. Then I look at my family, Grey Caritage, and they're all into it and enjoy coming to the ballpark. Most people I introduce do enjoy it because, again, it's a different sport in terms of the pace of the game. You can relax a little bit more and then sit back and enjoy the menu of the hot dogs or the crackerjack and see some home runs in the background. Well, you don't understand the sport. It's a bit like cricket, right? Most Americans, almost every American does not understand cricket. Are you trying to explain test cricket, that it's five days, two innings each, it could rain and end in a draw? Nobody understands it, but when you understand the game, you understand what brilliant test cricket is. Like my son, he watched the Ashes with me, and I had the first two tests, I was explaining how this works, why they might declare, what the follower knows, which never got used. Trying to explain the strategy of it all. And then once he understood, he got into it, and I was mentioning going to watch baseball. I said to you before we started recording, I was dating that girl in LA, so we were going to watch the Dodgers. It was a playoff season, and I must have gone to maybe five games. I went to the game, I don't know if you know the one where Justin Turner hit a walk -off home run in the playoffs. I think it was against, it might have been the Cubs, but by the way, that itself was an unreal moment. The great finish there. Unbelievable. But I had a guy who was sat with me each game explaining it to me. And one of the things I'd never known about is the whole pitcher strategy. My from assumption the little I'd watched here or there, it was just one guy all game. And if somebody came on and it was injury, I didn't realize you're strategically placing different pitchers in the game, especially towards the end of the seventh, eighth, ninth innings. I didn't know any of that. And so once you understood that, you understood the strategy. And then there's huge strategy, whether you're bringing in a left -handed pitcher to pitch to a right -handed batter, left -handed batter, or someone that can face up to a curveball better than a slider, et cetera. Explaining the game to someone in baseball is a lot easier in the ballpark. If you're watching it off the screen, it's a bit harder to pick up. If you sit in the ballpark and you've got someone that can explain the rules, you will understand it a lot quicker than watching it at home. But the strategy behind pitching is nuts. The movie Moneyball and the strategy behind the analytics is spot on. There's so much you can gain out of the numbers. And that's a big part of our relationship, even with Tampa, is the Tampa front office and what they have in terms of identifying talent and how they use it is something that is a great benefit to an organization like the Perth Heat as well. There's a whole Moneyball thing that started coming to football as well. I know specifically teams like Brentford and Brighton have used it. But they're using it in a different way. They're trying to identify talent, which they sell out. I mean, Brighton. Can you look up their sales of players? I mean, Brighton. They have a profit of 130 million pounds, was it, this summer? I mean, historically, they weren't ever a Premier League team. No. It's only in the last, what, five, six years did they become Premier League? They're now established. But the volume of players they sell and the rates they sell their players for, have they got recent sales? Yeah. Let me pull it up. It was the same with Southampton. They kind of had that strategy as well. So there we go. Okay. Caicido, 160 million euros. McAllister, you went to Liverpool, 42 million. Sanchez, 23 million. But there's more in the previous. I mean, is that just this season? Yeah, that's this season. Did you have last season as well? I don't think it was on him. What was up at the top when you scrolled to the top? That was people who had come in. Right. Okay. But this is their whole strategy. I mean, they're now talking, this guy just got a hat -trick. The other Ferguson got the hat -trick against Newcastle the other day. People are starting to talk about him. And they've managed to have this rotation of players. Even though they're selling their best players, they've got these new ones coming through and they've got like an identity, which means it's a profitable business. Luton were the same. So Luton Town managed to get back in the Premier League from going into non -league, which itself is incredible. But they had a whole strategy of bringing players through and it's part of their revenue model. Does that perform part of your actual revenue model to develop players? For Perth Heat, it's a little bit different because if we have players that we continue to develop, they'll get drafted. And the draft system works a little bit differently to football where the club doesn't take the profit. The actual transfer fee goes direct to the player. Oh, wow. It's one of the first questions our board of management asked when they took the license over. How can we develop players and on -sell them? But it doesn't work like that in baseball, unfortunately. So, yeah, we've got a great farm system of producing young Aussie talent to go and pick up minor league contracts. But there's no return there to the club, unfortunately. Were you a baseball fan before you joined? I mean, I played when I was a kid. But not much of a fan. No. No, it was strictly because of the opportunity that came up that I joined. And when did you join? When? Same time. So about a year before, when the talks happened about, well, maybe this is something that we might be able to do. And then what the details look like for making it a possibility for a team to embrace Bitcoin as much as the team has. And then suddenly realizing that it's going to be significantly more work than what it first appeared to be. Because I didn't really have a role there to begin with. I didn't have a job. I wasn't working there at all. But then sort of trying to orange pill the board after Steve got it and to show them what we could do with it. It was very much, this is the idea. This is what we think we can do with it. And their attitude was, OK, go out and prove it and show them exactly what we could do to kick things off. And then from there, it was just small win after small win. And then realizing, well, if we're going to actually do it and announce things in November about just how far down the rabbit hole we were going to go, that we couldn't just, you know, Bitcoin is not at the point now where you can just launch and say, OK, everything worked perfectly. I mean, you know, it's so hit and miss with things that will work and things that won't work. And that's integration with systems that are already in place, especially when you're talking about a business of this size. You know, it's not your micro strategy. We don't have teams and teams of lawyers or people that can look after all of the various elements. And to go all in on Bitcoin means really restructuring how you do everything. And eventually that came back to me as my sort of ability to transition and see what will work, what's going to work now, what will work in 90 days from now and what it's going to look like in 180 days from now. All of that has changed and just somewhat to stay on top of that and to help integrate it into the systems that Steve is already looking after. Yeah. So I'm going to be interested to compare and contrast what you've done to what we've done, because like we're tiny. You know, our crowds are tiny. When we take, if you want to pay with Bitcoin on a match day, we're talking a handful of transactions. You got up to 7000 people there. So that's that's an entirely different beast. What were you, sorry Steve, what were you doing before you joined? My background is media marketing, so I used to be a sports reporter on one of the commercial networks here in Australia with Channel 7. I was there 14 years as a broadcaster, used to commentate to football games. But after being a reporter for the best part of 15 years and seeing how sports organisations run, that's where the real appetite for running a sports organisation came in and wanting to win championships. So I went and worked for a local football team, which is the Perth Glory, who play in the A -League. I was in a media marketing role there for a few years. Is that where Robbie Fowler played? He did the great man. God. Yeah. He used to come over to Mum's house every week for dinner. Shut up. Yeah. Are you serious? A gentleman. One of the most beautiful men. Yeah. We're always on the text to each other. He's a... You're friends with Robbie Fowler? Yeah. There we go. You're in. I want an interview with him. He's one of my childhood heroes. Oh wow. Yeah. And you know what? He's just a lad. He's just brilliant. He came and played for the organisation. And yeah, it was Monday night's dinner at Mum's house. He loved the Greek food, so we kept to a winning formula. That's unbelievable. Do you know the song the Liverpool fans sing about him? About we all live in a Robbie Fowler house. Do you know about this? I don't know. So Robbie Fowler is one of the footballers who was very smart with his money. He just bought just properties all over Liverpool constantly. And see, he's got this huge property portfolio in Liverpool. And so the Liverpool fans sing, we all live in a Robbie Fowler house. Yeah. He's a... He's God. He's God. He's just an awesome guy. Good fun to hang out with. And yeah, made so much time for the people of Perth. We had a great year together. And he's also very cheeky as well. There was a time where we weren't performing too well. We'd lost, I think, five games on the trot. And it was the time that Wayne Rooney was having a whole heap of issues with Manchester United. And we were about to do this live TV cross for Channel 7. And we knew the chairman wasn't too happy at the time. So I said, we've just got to try and deflect here. And Robbie had been in the UK for a week. And the presenter said, so Robbie, what was the trip to the UK all about? And he said, it was to chat to Wayne. And my phone had been, the media marketing guy just blew up, Fleet Street just went mad with this. It was just an off -the -cuff joke that we were trying to sign Wayne Rooney. And it was just everywhere within hours and we had to put out a press release and it was great because it deflected off the five losses that we'd had, but it was just a bit of a piss take. What was his scoring record like at Perth? Look, it wasn't as good as what it was at Liverpool. We would have been nice for him to score a few more goals, but the team struggled a little bit that year. And I think he ended up maybe with a dozen goals from memory somewhere around there. But it was a good year. And then again, I remember him taking out a little urn when England won the Ashes out before a game. And he put it up on his head and there was photos of it. He's just a great prankster in a lot of ways. He's an awesome person to have in your change room. And yeah, I'm really happy to call him a friend. So I went down the Robbie Fowler rabbit hole with my son the other week because, did you watch the Liverpool Newcastle game the other week? No, I missed it. Right. So I said to my son that there were two games when I was a kid when Liverpool played Newcastle. There were four, three consecutive years. The first one was a back and forth. I think Liverpool went 1 -0 up, then Newcastle went 2 -1 up, then Liverpool got it back to 2. Then they went 3 -2 up, then 3 -0. Liverpool went 4 -3. Stan Collimore in the 90th minute. It's an unreal game. And then a year later, Liverpool went 3 -0 up, Newcastle got it back to 3 -0. And then in the last minute, Robbie Fowler scores ahead of this flying header to go 4 -3. And so I then just had to explain Robbie Fowler to my son, why everyone said he was God. And we went down this kind of rabbit hole of Robbie Fowler goals. I was always really sad, though, because when he left Liverpool, I'm trying to remember, was it Leeds and Man City he went to? Did play both, yeah. Yeah, and I just couldn't accept him, not in a Liverpool shirt. Not in a Liverpool shirt, yeah. It didn't make sense to me. No, iconic to that club, and yeah. Absolute legend. Sorry, there's a bit of a tangent. OK, so going from commentator to chief exec, that's quite a jump. Did you have to kind of prove yourself you were capable? Did you have to pitch yourself for it? Look, I did the four years at Perth Glory in a media marketing role. I then stepped outside of sport for the first time in my career and just did some sales, what they called home and land packages here in Australia, selling some land in the house with it, and quickly went into a management role there with one of the companies. And then the opportunity came with the heat, and I was given the chance to run my first club, which was good because at the time I'd just started as president of a football club as well. So the management position was quite similar. I've run both roles now for the last five years, which has been brilliant. What is the mandate for the chief exec? How does it compare to, say, a chairman in a football team? Just look, every club's structure can be a little bit different, so yeah, a chairman for us is one of the shareholders, majority shareholder of our club, so he's who I report to. I've got the day -to -day running of the organisation, and I report to our chairman. What are the main things that you're responsible for the team in ensuring they've got the resources they need? Everything, yeah. Everything, yeah. I run the organisation. So it's basically probably almost identical to my role. Correct. Yeah, absolutely. Bigger numbers. Yeah, there's bigger numbers, but I don't think it really matters, and there's probably a good contrast with a football club. Whether you've got 10 members, 100 members, 1 ,000 members, a million members, the communication is still the same. You still treat your members the same way, regardless of how many zeros are involved. It's the same if you do a social media post, whether your club's only got 50 members or 50 ,000, you're still putting out information. So in some ways, don't get scared by the numbers. It's treat the position with respect and your members and partners, et cetera. Again, corporate partners, regardless of what the partnership value is, they're a corporate partner.

Also, all of the marketing possibilities with your home team. Hello, and welcome to the Lawyers, Guns, and Money podcast. This is Eric Loomis, and I'm here with Rob Farley and Scott Lemieux to discuss the general state of sports right now, particularly baseball, probably a little bit of football. Gentlemen, how are you all doing? Very well. There's also an obscure politically relevant hockey topic I could bring up too. We could always talk hockey around here, which might be more of a monologue for you, but hey, that's... Hockey and racism. That's the game on ice. But it's been a lot since we talked about sports here. Right now, it's August 30th is when we're recording this, and baseball is reaching its pennant races, or playoff races I guess is more appropriate these days. They're very interesting this year. Particularly, I think we should start with the official or unofficial perhaps team of LGM, which is our Seattle Mariners. So, what a run for the Mariners, and I was wondering what thoughts you guys had about what's going on here and maybe talk about the ALS generally. Well, as Eric and I, I don't know how many times I had this conversation earlier this summer, I was just brimming with confidence about the Mariners, particularly that offense. Every time Dylan Moore came up in a big spot, it was just great. No, I was... I was kind of on the fence. I know on our major league preview, Dave was pretty optimistic, and then I think the rest of us were like, consciously optimistic, but perhaps a little more skeptical, and I think I might have been the most skeptical. And then really for the first half of the year, the team was actually worse than even I had anticipated. Good pitching, but just really desultory offense. Particularly with Julio being a little off, and there's not just much else going on. The Mariners having their annual second base disaster, the curse of Sean Figgins, showing up in Colton Wong. What was his final slashline? It was genuinely horrific. Yeah, like I just... And one thing to see, Jesse Winkers also on his way out of the league. You know, so it ended up being kind of a wash no trade, but boy what a disaster it was. I mean, it was not a bad move. I mean, yeah, so he had a 241 on base, 227 slugging. And one year ago, he slugged 430, and the year before that, 447. I don't know what it is that happens when the something about the Mariners and second base are not mixed. And Adam Frazier was awful for us last year, has been a perfectly competent member of the Orioles this year. So I don't know what's going on there. But anyway, and it's weird that the team almost turned around when they released Wong, not saying he was the only problem there. But you know, and what's interesting is that the pitching staff has been excellent all year. And I think that the Mariners rotation has been top three in ERA all season. And I believe they're now first in the majors in the ERA. I may be wrong, but it's close, if not so. Really, really strong rotation led by Castillo. Scott's surveys always has good bowl pens. And one thing is that they were able to use their annual pump and dump, sort of creating a closure out of Paul Siewald and trading that for a couple of useful depth pieces that they really needed, even though they've had a little bit of problem in the back end. So yeah, it's surprising, obviously led by Rodriguez. But obviously, it's been really encouraging how they've played over the last couple of months. And it would be nice if they could win the series against the A's as the rubber match is ongoing as they speak. But yeah, it's been pretty exciting over the last month. And I'm looking forward to going back to the park. I mean, it's interesting. I think that when they traded Siewald, it was sort of like, well, what really is Dominic Canzone and Josh Rojas? I mean, they seem like a couple of marginal players and they actually played pretty well, both of them in Seattle. But I mean, it seemed like what they did ultimately was just give him, give service a lot more platoon options and a lot more mix and match stuff that he's been using at the back end of the lineup so that if it makes sense to go more or Matt Ford or Caballero, then that's fine. But Cade Marlowe has been a pretty good call up. And then Canzone and Rojas, I mean, that's a lot of options, each of which is functional to slightly more than functional in the right circumstance against the right pitchers. And I think that makes a lot of sense. And then, you know, Telenik will get, you know, should be back here for whatever that's going to really be given that he was, after that good start with sort of sliding back into his usual suckiness as the season went on. But they should have a lot of options in September. So I think it'll be, you know, I like the way the team sort of made moves mid -year to change its construction, even though, as you say, is Munoz really a reliable closer? Well, it's been a couple of times where it doesn't seem to such so. But, you know, but you certainly have to like where the team is in a three -way tie for the West with cratering a Rangers team and an Astros team that, of course, is going to remain competitive, but has its own flaws. Yeah, I mean, this is this is such a remarkably interesting division, right? I mean, and, you know, one of these teams is not going to go to the playoffs, right? I mean, we're operating in the assumption we're going to have a division winner. We're going to have, you know, one of the teams is probably going to be the wild card, but one of them is not going to go to the playoffs. Well, no, no, because there's three wild card teams now. Is it three wild card teams now? Yeah, so Toronto, I mean, you know, somebody's going to be out, but it could be, it could be the Blue Jays. Oh, okay. You see, I was this was a rules update that I was unaware of. But, yeah, the season ended today. Seattle, Texas, and Houston would all be in and the Blue Jays are actually three and a half games behind the Astros. So that's they're actually have work to do. Yeah, that's that's actually quite interesting in terms of the National League as well. But I think the more critical point about this particular division is that, you know, you have you have one of the worst rosters in the history of baseball in this division. And I would I would hazard that the Oakland A's are not the biggest train wreck in this division, right? I mean, I think that the the Angels, you know, are having one of these catastrophic seasons that even though they're not going to end up the worst team in this division because of the A's, you know, this is this is a sort of great train wreck of a team in terms of its wasted potential, catastrophic its complete use of two of the biggest stars, two of the most talented players, not just in Major League Baseball, but in baseball around the world.

Northwest News Time 12 11. Our life expectancy in the United States continues to degrade. There's a new study from the Post Washington that found chronic diseases are the greatest threats people between the ages of 35 and 64. Akilah Johnson covering this for the Post and spoke with Northwest News Radio's Frank Lenzi. Akilah, what qualifies first of all as chronic disease. You know chronic illnesses are typically what we think of as chronic disease, hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, diseases that persist over years, sometimes decades. And these illnesses even outpace gun violence, opioid overdose, and the COVID -19 pandemic, is that right? Yeah, so we found that you know amongst people ages 35 to 64, chronic illnesses erase twice as many years of life as overdoses, homicides, suicides, and car accidents. How does the United States compare with other wealthy countries when it comes to fighting chronic disease? Not so well. So we have gone from the middle of the pack to the last to when we are comparing ourselves to pure nations in the life expectancy race. Well any reason for that? Why are we dropping like that? You know when you speak to experts, a lot of experts say a lot of it has to do with how we think of health in this country and that we quite often conflate health with medicine and health with health care. And it's different in different parts of the country, is that right? Most of the 35 to 6 year olds who are dying are in what parts of the US? So there is a regionality to this, right? And so you quite often will see people who are living now, because it has changed over the last 40 years, we looked at it 40 over years, people who live in urban areas tend to have better life expectancy and better lifespans and the last 40 years and folks who are living in more rural communities. And so also you will find that state politics plays a large role in who lives and dies and life expectancy and life spans. And so states that tend to have more Republican leaning red state kind of legislatures, they expectancies. That's Akilah Johnson from the Washington Post speaking with Northwest News Radio's Frank Lenzi. tend to have better life COVID vaccine.

You know why I commissioned this one. Why Chuck why because I thought it would be fun To put a old farmers almanac in the outhouse at my camp Okay, wait first you have an outhouse. I have an outhouse. Is it just a pit like a latrine with a log over it? No, it's a composting toilet. Okay with a little solar panel outside that runs a fan Okay, and the fan do the fan moves air through to provide aerobic Interaction exercise the with the with the with the poop and the composting Pete I just made a Compost tea like that, but I used a submerged little fountain pump. They create the air movement Yeah, pretty neat it is neat. So yeah, I got a composting toilet. It's good It helps I don't use it. I use it to go poopy if I'm there for more than a couple of days But largely I put it there. So You know some of some of the ladies in my life and and friends wives and things Don't like to squat in the woods. Some of them don't mind but I put that there So everyone would want to go camping at the camp and be like, yeah, you got a composting toilet I feel good about using it I can I can see the conversation between the couple in the kitchen back in Atlanta like one now He's got a composting toilet Well now I work now you can count me in Well, and now I gotta say is he's got a composting toilet and an old farmer's almanac in that outhouse Because I thought it would just be sort of a fun thing because I knew from growing up as a kid That an old in the south that an old farmer's almanac was quite a common thing to find in a bathroom or an outhouse To read while you're there on the john, so I have one there. It's from a couple years ago I need to get a new one. I should change it every year, you know, that's sort of the whole point of an almanac pretty slack and So I thought I was reading it the other day when I was up there cutting grass I was like, I don't really don't even know the history of these things and so let's find out So did you read them when you were a kid, too? I mean a little bit here and there is not very interesting for a kid. Sure But grandmother my Bryant my my dad's mom was a backyard farmer her whole life and you know, she was one of these people that Put a lot of stock in the farmer's almanac And so it was just something I knew about in my life as a kid probably didn't read it a ton though I was never exposed to it. I knew it existed you were from the north Yeah, it was Midwest but to Georgia Ohio was the north Yes, still but there was corn corn everywhere around where I lived Oh sure So it is a little surprising But the biggest surprise that I received since we started researching this is that you me Apparently used to read the farmer's almanac when she was a little kid Nothing you ever tell me about you me will surprise me. It's true. You just never know. No, you really don't that's great For those of you who've never met you me you wouldn't consider her a farmer's almanac type That's pretty safe to say yeah, so I was I thought that was neat she's very well -rounded but I In in like chia pet fashion went on and ordered this time myself a farmer's almanac I was gonna order you one and I was like, I'll bet he's already got one on. Oh, look at you very smart Also, I've made a joke about you're from the north as it turns out as we'll see the old farmer's almanac came from New England Originally, yeah, so I was you know people from the north There's plenty of farming that went on all over the country by God they even cover the weather forecast for the year in, California Exactly, they they don't discriminate. All right, so big thanks to Dave Ruse who helped us out with this one We're gonna talk mostly about the old farmer's almanac, but we will talk a little bit about its rival the farmer's almanac But we're talking about the old farmer's almanac the one that's that's looked the same Since its inception with that yellow cover the Four seasons. It's very Did you get yours in the mail yet? No, I pre -ordered it. I won't arrive until August 30th. Oh, this is for next year Yes, that's very smart Well, I mean what am I gonna do be like well what happened two weeks ago getting this year's, you know I mean like I want that you could from August to December you could surely gain some insight No, I don't like to waste money. I'd rather just wait But it's been the same well We'll talk a little bit more about the cover and its presentation and all that but it's very iconic looking if you've ever seen one It's been around since 1792. That's amazing Which means it's the oldest Continuously published periodical in North America. Yeah, and I looked it up. That's the the oldest Published anything that's been continuously printed in North America is the Hartford Courant We started as the Connecticut Courant in 1764 not too much sooner than the farmers almanac But then if you look for the world the the Swiss have us beat by a mile yeah, they have a What's called the post and domestic times the post ach in Rick? Tiden in Gar Okay, and again that means the post and domestic times which has been printed continuously since 1645 Amazing, but still that's nothing to sneeze at 1792 and they never missed an addition pretty good Yeah, totally in these these books basically, I mean those sort of an almanac craze at one point Lots of small family farms all over the country. Yeah pre industrialization There were hundreds of farmers almanacs all over the place a lot of regional ones Even local ones and what you would find in them if you were like, well guys what the heck? It's a farmer's almanac. Good. Good walk back. What it is is there are books that will say things like Here's when you should plant things. Here's some tips on cattle very importantly here are Astronomical Charts this is when the Sun is gonna rise and set in the spring and throughout the year These are the phases of the moon. Here are some recipes. Maybe here's some jokes. Here's some poetry So they would mix in some folksy fun stuff and entertaining stuff along with Sort of boots to the ground advice tips and raw data for farming Yeah, and but the big draw is the long -range weather forecasts like they essentially forecast the weather Generally for the entire United States and Canada a year in advance Yeah, we'll talk about that and they say that they're 80 % accurate, which is mind -boggling. It's it's almost unbelievable yeah, and it's things like I remember my grandmother referring to it for her crops later in the year to see like How rainy is it gonna be this fall? How rainy will it be six months from now exactly and people put a lot of stock in it And some people still do even yeah, so it's it's an unusual and unique combination of folksy folk wisdom and folklore even Things like if you want to have turnips in the winter and you there's no such thing as refrigeration Keep them in packed in sawdust during the summer or whatever stuff like that. It's useful, but then there's also like Astrology like horoscopes and that kind of thing So it but then it's alongside like actual legitimate astronomical data that is accurate It's a weird combination of really is and apparently it grew out of the medieval era And the word almanac itself seems to have been invented by medieval French astronomers in the 13th century although they said that it was an Arabic word almanac and That meant calendar of the heavens and apparently these astronomers just totally made that up Yeah, it was yeah, like you said invented by the French these medieval almanacs were they were just handwritten this before the printing press and They did some similar things though. They talked about like celestial bodies and Moon phases and stuff like that Eventually when the printing press comes along They were some of the first things to be printed like people live their lives by these a lot of times So they were some of the most popular early Books and periodicals that existed in the world essentially Yeah, because of their popularity and because even back then they were just kind of bizarre creatures their own thing They were also widely satirized too as early as 1532 There was a French satirist named Rabalais who created a parody almanac And he prognosticated Stuff that's quite obvious as a way to just kind of mock what almanacs do But he started a trend that lasted for hundreds of years and the most famous parody almanac was poor Richard's almanac Which was published by Benjamin Franklin from 1732 to 58 and what's neat is Even though it was a parody and they made stuff up and it was funny and satire of almanacs It also contained like actual helpful useful information, too Yeah, it did he wrote under the pseudonym Richard Saunders and It's famous for a lot of things one of which like you said it was around for What 20 something years 25 26 years? I'm guessing like 30 something Yeah, but it was like the best -selling for that long but it was very famous now for these a lot of turns of phrase that Franklin invented as Saunders such as We still use today Haste makes waste is one Fish and visitors smell after three days And of course the old standard early to bed early to rise makes a man healthy wealthy and wise Very all came from poor Richard's almanac.

Wow the National League won does the National League now have the designated hitter Have they adopted it? Maybe that's the reason they got used to using that. I mean, it's just speculation. I Don't like the idea the whole point of baseball Was that the pitcher who almost never knows how to hit what was a Wednesday night was last night Okay, you're driving me crazy, but it was not intentional The whole point of baseball was that the manager and the team had to figure out a way To decide do we keep the pitcher in or not? since every player in baseball must bat as well as field and Then they knocked it out because they thought the fans want to see more home runs It was not love of baseball It was love of revenue that the Major League Major League Baseball changed one of the most important aspects of the game and It is just typical That there is It's hard to find an institution that asks what is best for the the larger Entity whether it's America or in this case baseball. What is best for it? They don't ask that See that's why I Saw some internet place that cited me Dennis Prager All his life has been asking has been saying that there is a question to be asked. It's the most important question How does society make good people? Because you you chip away at its foundations one by one by one by one and people Don't react a lot of a lot of fans even like the rule But oh good the pitcher could stay in and we just have a guy who does nothing but hit that's just great it's fun What's better there's an article today actually that sort of Represents exactly what I'm saying in the Telegraph in Britain Couples who decided dual income and no kids too good to give up Britain isn't having enough babies and now the state pension is under threat Yes, that's exactly right who's having who's having babies in the Western world It's disproportionately religious people religious Christians and Jews and for that matter Muslims Religious people are having babies But Hey religion religion doesn't make people do anything better Who needs religion I have me So people don't ask what's better for society. They were asked what's better for themselves It Every aspect of life But they're all as I said small so they don't they don't alarm people I Have I've spoken about the question of how people dress in public all of my life and By the way in this regard religious people are generally not any better God doesn't care what you wear to church you many wonderful people have called my show over the course of decades to tell me that God doesn't care. I don't even understand the notion. God doesn't care what you wear to church really I Well, maybe we should care People why did why did people dress up in the past because it was a way of honoring your fellow citizen and honoring your society But in other words it represented The larger question what's better for not me It's easier for me to to dress utterly casually but but what is better for society It's better for society if you marry and have children It is better for society if you dress nicely whether it's at school or a church or at the office or Even on an airplane Men walking on grown men in t -shirts and shorts Whenever I see that I ask myself can I imagine my father Going out in public in a t -shirt and shorts Not talking to the beach not talking about obviously at home Going on an airplane And Now it seems to almost not almost everybody but to I would say a majority of people including conservatives that I'm Sort of tilting at windmills here and it it doesn't really matter.

"Is the 7th president in the history of the organization and has played a huge role in revamping the fan experience at a's games like adding amenities like Gourmet food trucks and all the access to the clubs, the Gourmet food trucks, creating new ticket programs, the Gourmet food trucks, and even hosting Major League Baseball's first completely free game. And Gourmet food trucks. So I guess my question to you is, how about those Gourmet food trucks? Because that sounds like a great idea. It is video for all the games we created this incredible environment called championship Plaza celebrates our 9 world championships and we get anywhere from 8 to ten food trucks at the games. You get everything from Creole food from Louisiana to barbecue. We get the crab shaft comes out. So it's just incredible different food offerings and it's just getting hungry just talking about it right now. And we get the Italian ice. I love the Italian ice one. It's just incredible. So all the food options are really fun and it's kind of a cool festival atmosphere and there's a big video board you can watch the game and we did this down when I ran the soccer team in San Jose, the earthquake and it's just a great environment for families to hang out and be at the game kind of in a different context. Yeah, I think about the times I go to what used to be PAC bell park and I can't even honestly recall what the name of it is now. AT&T park. AT&T Oracle. Okay, see? The change that all the time, man. It's like wherever the Giants play. And the food that they have there. I'm curious to get your take on what you think about how sharing a market the Bay Area with the Giants has changed over your time as president of the Oakland ace. I know that in the past there have been a lot of comments from a's management about the difficulties, the challenges of sharing that market with the Giants. I'd like you first to comment on how it's changed over your time and whether you see any parallels between sharing the Bay Area market between these two teams and what's happening say, for instance, in New York. Well, there's certainly challenges from a marketing perspective to have the two teams. You're competing over fans and things of that nature. I think long-term is good to have the rivalry of two teams. I think you could almost look to European soccer like in London or Tottenham is a big rival to arsenal and Chelsea. And it actually grows the interest in the sport. And I think one of the challenges we've had is we just don't have a facility to plan this at the same standards as Oracle park. And that puts us at a severe disadvantage. And so that's why if we can get this incredible crown jewel, a new waterfront stadium at Howard terminal, we're going to be able to compete as an equal or even at a higher level from a fan experience than the Giants because their stadium is 30 years old or 20 years old. And so I think that's really an important factor and our decisions as a franchise has to be made through the lens of, hey, this is a two team market. We're competing with the Giants and we have to create a product that's on the same level or higher. Well, the facility getting a new facility solved the issues when it comes to payroll and putting a competitive team on the field. Yes, I think it can because we're going to have several 100 million in additional revenue that we can then push back and reinvest in the players. We operate at almost a $250 million revenue disparity to the Giants. And they're able to funnel that back into both the fan experience and then most importantly, the player side. We competed at a very high level without those resources. So if we, I think, deploy that and give that to the Moneyball crew, Billy bean did enforce the whole team. I think we can be extremely competitive on a year to year basis than really compete head on. And so that's one of the reasons we're spending so much time on the ballpark effort and doing everything we can to kind of get a breakthrough and get it built because it is such a game changer for us. If you get a new ballpark on the waterfront in that area, how will you finance it? Will it go through trying to get some taxpayer dollars or will it be all privately financed? The stadium is all privately financed. It's part of a larger $12 billion, a real estate project that we are leading. And so there is tax increment financing, which is basically but for taxes, taxes that are only generated by the project that are used to pay back our upfront investment in infrastructure. So that is the contribution from the public side. At a public private partnership. And that's a typical way you'd see a big project like this done Hudson yards in New York and things of that nature. And it can be very effective at taking an area. This is an industrial area and really kind of reimagining it as a commercial and entertainment hub on the waterfront. How worried, therefore, are you about the state of the economy and rising interest rates on Oakland's appetite to fund something like that or contribute something like that? Or any other city for that matter is willingness to subsidize a new stadium in any way. Well, considering that the only dollars invested from the public side or dollars that are generated by the projects, there's very little risk for the municipality. It's very different than when the Raiders came from LA and they built the stadium or renovated the stadium for them and issued their own bonds. This is a very different deal and it's way more financially responsible for all parties. And more consistent with the ways these deals are put together in the Bay Area. So I don't think that the economy will have a noticeable impact on that. If anything, if the economy dips, there might be more of an initiative to say, we need a big project like this. Dave Cavill, thank you very much president of the Oakland a's. I'm the hope you had a good time and just to sit down with us and chew the fat about baseball. We really do appreciate it. Thank you, sir. Awesome. Thanks for having me guys. Dave Cavill. I always love talking baseball and obviously when you're the president of a Major League Baseball team, that's the guy to talk to about baseball. And I know Scarlett, the record is kind of low right now, but you know what? Not good. It's not good. But it's still baseball. And it still can be very good baseball. And like I was saying earlier, you don't have to have a big payroll to be competitive. Yeah, but the record overall leaves a lot to be desired. They have a three 29 winning percentage right now. The next worst team in the AL west has a four 61 winning percentage. So there are 22 and a half games back. They can make it up. From the Astros. Okay. I guess the question when it comes to the a's because they're so synonymous with money bald. I guess it works right now if you're going through the pain of refreshing the cycle and everything. And if you're going to be approved for a new stadium, now is the time or and you'll move potentially now's the time that refreshing that cycle could make sense. I don't know. It might create a lot of perhaps ill will among the fanbase too. I thought it was interesting that he said that they have more fans outside of the east bay than they do inside. And that's something that's why I wonder if that they're rooting to hit that waterfront stadium instead of moving the whole thing to Las Vegas. I think it would be much more beneficial for

Clubhouse which was CC Sabathia really just sitting with friends and interesting how that came about is CC said hey you know I love sitting around where it's former players and my Friends and watching the game and the conversation that happens during those times is something that the world should see And we said you know what Let's do broadcasts like that rather than have sort of a traditional boots and more of a structured scenario where from a broadcast standpoint let's try that And we've tried a lot of different things And I think all the leagues have been doing that You see that in the NFL with demanding tasks You see different technology coming into play And so that's on the forefront of making sure that on every device that we reach out to our fans that we're offering a product that's different So you won't see on the Apple games You won't see it the same way you see You would see that game on traditional TV And vice versa You just answered the question And I was thinking of it That's about why you would see it And Lindsey I was thinking of the same thing We're the older guys watching stuff And now the younger crowd is watching Apple Lynchi I'm sorry I was just popping That's perfect segue because speaking of the younger people is sports betting to talk about the demographics of sports betting in what the demographics of the fan that's being driven to watch the game are attend the game Yeah listen sports betting is interesting I think that for us I look at it as an engagement platform right We directly don't make any money from sports gambling Obviously there's sponsorship opportunities and partnership opportunities in the actual bets on the game We don't make money off of that part of the equation That said people that are hardcore and gamble on games and will engage with the game longer And I think that's one of the things where you look at these different platforms I don't think we'll ever my word really over gamify a broadcast of a game What I do think we will do is have alternative broadcasts for people that are specifically looking for that type of content And that way we can give that fan what they want and what they're looking for And so as that continues to evolve that space and you see more sort of in game betting and stuff like that my guess is they're going to gravitate to sort of these alternative broadcasts So I'm riding in the car with my dad I'm about ten And all of a sudden I said daddy the man on the radio is talking about the MLB Jersey patch program What's the Jersey patch program The Jersey patch program is a list of the tremendous opportunity for a partner at the local level to have an association that's really unprecedented with Major League Baseball teams Other sports have already climbed this mountain for us We wanted to be sort of methodical in our approach We saw what was going out and what was going on and what worked and what didn't work And we put together a program where on the one hand it provides a real opportunity of value for partners and another revenue stream for local clubs Talk about the revenue stream for local clubs How will that be split between the MLB and the team specifically So it won't be split I mean this is a local sale like every other sponsorship sale or partnership sale to have at the local level Obviously on an overall level we have a revenue share in program that all teams participate in And it will be subject to the same sort of revenue sharing conditions that any other piece of revenue at the local level would But when they sell it it's their revenue Up next on the show stay tuned for more.

"Dot com while playing for the Hiroshima carp last year. Suzuki hit three 17 with 38 homers, 88 RBIs. 132 games and we mentioned the tremendous OPS that he had. Look, I think the Red Sox have been linked to him pretty much since the braves won the World Series last year and ever since the postseason the off season began and was obviously interrupted in December by the lockout. He's been a name that's been tossed around by those close to the Red Sox as somebody who would likely be a great fit in Boston. Yeah, and I mean, there has been a lot of smoke, the Japanese media, I believe, have said it's more or less a done deal. He's going on Koji Harris podcast and I think he's been pictured wearing Red Sox hats. Like you feels like they just got to dot the I's and cross the T's with him, but yeah, no, again, he'd be exactly what they need. You know, kind of their way of doing business. The only really the only hold up is a lot of times the Japanese players want to be on the West Coast, so they're closer to home. That would probably be the biggest roadblock I would guess at this point with him. Besides that, he feels that he feels like a definite fit in somebody they seem to be strongly in on. I think they should sign Jose Iglesias. I've always liked them. I think he's a solid fit. And he's low risk. And I want to see him come back as a guy that can really play great defense at second base. And you can move around the infield as well. Yeah, I mean, he's probably not at the top of the free agency list. He's a guy to assume they can get back for value later in the process before opening day. It hurt them not having him in the playoffs last year. He was signed beyond the deadline and he was an eligible, but he makes a ton of sense to bring back. They still have that whole and second base. I don't think they want to plug it with the long-term deal because they have Jeter downs on the way, right? They don't want to give somebody a 5 year deal when downs will probably, I don't think it will be up this year, but probably 2023 at the latest 2024. So yeah, Iglesias and Arroyo may be KK Hernandez factors in in a platoon there. That feels like the best way to handle it. All right, let's Jen McCaffrey of the athletic also has a great piece. Kind of did what you did, Alex 9 creations that the Red Sox might target with the lockout lifted. Something Jen did before she got into her list of 9 free agents was recapping what heim bloom did before the lockout began. He traded hunter renfrow to Milwaukee in exchange for JBJ and prospects Alex benus and David Hamilton. Both of whom I might add have already been down at Fort Myers in minor league training camp, which began last week. Ian Brown and who I'm going to have on this podcast next week does a tremendous job of really going over what those two prospects can expect to do in terms of contributing to the Red Sox down the road. The Red Sox and heim bloom also signed left handed picture 42 year old Rick hill to a one year deal signed right hander, Michael walker to a one year deal..

"So gray is great. I'm not gonna say Cray is not the best player on the board, but if I could pick one of these free agents or at least offensively, we'll get to another guy, I like. But at the top of my offensive board for the Red Sox, Nick Castellanos. First of all, put him either in between or after Bogart's endeavors. That's it. There's few teams offending the league that are matching that three, four, 5. He gives them a right handed bat, like you said, the outfield. And he's just so much fun to watch. He enjoys the game. He has one play in the game. He brings that energy. I think he'd be a really, really good fit in this Clubhouse. Like one of my wherever he goes unless it's the Yankees, I'll be a fan of his. I just personally a player I really enjoy. He checks so many boxes for them. Like you said, Craig is probably a pipe dream. Cassiano's probably is too, but man, would he be just such a perfect fit for the team for the city? Like Boston would eat up a guy like this. They would be all in on the cassia. If I could choose anybody off this list, it might be him. All right, the guy that I think you were going to refer to was outfielders, say a Suzuki, correct. I assume he's the one you would really like to see in Boston. No, it was actually, it was actually Carlos rodon. Ron Don. Ronda, yeah, Carlos rondo. But. Very unlikely. I know. Yes. But that addresses a different piece of starting picture. I'm going to stick to just the bats for now. The Red Sox, as we mentioned, need a right handed hitting outfielder. Suzuki certainly is that he's only 27, he hit three 17 with a one .069 OPS tremendous OPS and a 134 games in Japan last year. He projects to be a strong addition to any lineup in Major League Baseball. MLB trade rumors projects Suzuki would draw a 5 year $55 million deal and that's not including the negotiating fee that would go along with that, obviously. Chris Bryan has been in the mix, but again, MLB trade rumors project 6 years, a $160 million for Brian. The Red Sox are still conscious cost conscience, and they want value for what they're signing. Say is Suzuki checks that box, I think, for me. He certainly does, because $11 million a year for a starting outfielder is a really good deal, you're paying more, but posting fees not against the tax. So you're paying more, but you're not taxed on it. It really is the value signing. That's the one I, you know, the players I listed 11 players of those I listed, I think he's far and away the most likely. The one other name I'd put out there if we're talking about right handed out field bats, right? And you're talking about value as Jorge soler. It's going to be 30 years old. He really struggled early in the year last year, got dealt at the deadline, finished strong with the braves. He had two 69 and 55 games for Atlanta, gives them some pop. So he's the one other name I'd say, you know, right handed bat in the outfield, I wonder, 'cause, you know, with Chris Bryant Castellanos, his price is going to come down a little bit because there are so many good right handed bats that they could maybe get him a little below market. And do you do mention in your story on 98, 5, the sports sub.

"All right, taking care of some business here is we're back with Alex barth on this episode of a Red Sox beat on the CL and S media network. The Red Sox home opener. We mentioned when I thought it would be and I want to get this correct here it is. Home opener will be Friday. April 15th against the Minnesota Twins, of course, that is patriots day weekend that four game series against the twinks will finish with the Patriots day Monday morning, April 18th game at 1110. That will conclude that four game series and the Red Sox play three against the Toronto Blue Jays. At Fenway Park and then they head on down to Tampa Bay. To open the season, the Red Sox open on April 7th, the Thursday at one O 5 against the New York Yankees they have the scheduled Friday day off in case of inclement weather on the 7th, then they have two games on Saturday and Sunday. They have the game four O 5 on Saturday the 9th day of the game on the tenth at Yankee Stadium on a Sunday Night game so that game will be on ESPN. Shocking. And then they have three games in Detroit against the tigers Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, the day off on Thursday, and then the home opener on April 15th. So that's taken care of that business. Alex, you had a terrific piece and I want to get to this right now. Now that the lockout is over after a 99 day work stoppage on 98.5, the sports hub dot com, ten free agents for the Red Sox as the MLB off season resume. So you start with the number one free agent out there. And this could change in the matter of the next couple of hours, next couple of days. Carlos Correa. I think it's a pipe dream for the Red Sox. I don't think they're going to go after him. I don't think they're going to want to spend that kind of money. Even though, as you have pointed out, they do have a decent amount of room under the new CBT threshold as we mentioned earlier. $230 million of Red Sox payroll right now with 20 7 players under contract stands at $206 million. Carlos Correa, pipe dream, don't you think? Yeah, so just to clarify, this was if the Red Sox want to make a splash signing. This wasn't necessarily the most obvious ones, but they were linked to them. A lot of teams are linked to them, but they were one of them before the lockout and maybe things changed. Maybe things changed during the lockout and obviously the financial outlook of the league is new. Maybe they got some clarity on Xander Bogart situation. He has the out at the end of this year, shortstop is going to be a need. Marcelo May or great draft pick. He's not going to be ready for a couple of years. And who knows who knows if you're going to get another short opportunity to add a shortstop like this. And Trevor story is not on my list. He could qualify for this too, but short stop is going to be a need for this team and between Bogart's and nomar. I mean, that position was a revolving door for almost ten years in Boston. That's a very important position. I don't think you want to go into the unknown at shortstop, especially when you have all the southern young.

"Maximum. If you want to do a minor league draft after that, do that on your own time. I don't care. You cut the draft down to kind of like they do the minor league rule 5 draft, right? Right. Cut the draft down to ten rounds, maximum. Again, let teams trade picks because then it's, in addition to being about the players, right? You could trade a first round pick for a second and a third, people will get really into that regardless of who the players are that are involved. It'll also hype up the trade deadline, by the way, which is an added bonus to this. And I think in, I don't know how the union would feel about this, and this is probably an extreme jump. You'd make players play at least one year in college. And then the MLB could do which the NFL is great at, the NBA is great at the NHL's getting better at. Major League Baseball does nothing for college baseball. They have zero interest in it. They don't promote it. They don't talk about it. Nothing. Major League Baseball needs to take an active interest in college baseball because they're talking about it. So again, it's not just saying like, oh yeah, move the draft to January, and it'll be great. No, there's multiple steps that need to be taken here, but if baseball wants to compete with the NFL NBA, you need an active off season. Part of that is free agents not waiting until spring training to sign. But I don't know how you solve that issue. NFL NBA NHL, the second that deadline begins deals, deals, deals. Baseball, that was supposed to be last night. We still don't have anything. The other thing has moved the draft to the off season and make it an event. And that takes numerous steps. But I think that that would be, I think that would be an underrated investment for the league. If they could figure out a way to turn the draft into a real event. I am speaking with the one and only Alex barth of 98 5, the sports shop does a great job of following all things Boston sports follow him on Twitter at real Alex.
"major league baseball" Discussed on Red Sox Beat
"Your thoughts and then the other big one there just to add is the international draft and not having international free agency anymore. Correct. You looked like you're going to say something. Yes, because there's an asterisk involved in that because I want to go over my notes here. So I get this. That doesn't kick in right away, right? The parties will keep talking about the international amateur system and direct draft compensation until July 25th. At that point, if the players want to get rid of the qualifying offer, they have to take the international draft. Otherwise, there's no change to the qualifying offer and the owners don't get the international draft. If you're asking me, it depends on how much the players want to avoid the international draft really hurting a lot of the players overseas that would be impacted by that. I think they're going to elect to keep the qualifying offer and the owners will not get an international draft. That's what I think, but we'll see how that pans out. So I think and I was on a radio show last night talking about this. Baseball would baseball needs to do what at least the NBA and the NFL have done so well. The NHL is kind of something. Right. Well, the NBA and NFL have done so well as it's 365 day leak, right? We're sitting here march 11th. I wrote two NFL pieces before I came on the podcast. I'm going to write four more after I get off this show. Season I didn't play in a month they're not going to play for months. The best way to do that would get people most excited about the off season is the draft. People love the draft. People love the draft. You know, it's promise. It's only positives, et cetera. Baseball's draft could not be more of a turn off. It's in the middle of the season. It's too long. Nobody knows any of the players. There's no trades. So I think if baseball wants to get that off season hype, they need to move the draft to the off season. Shorten it, which they did, they went from 40 to 20. Now, take off another ten picks and we're in business. I think having the I think if they combine it, which to me, if they get an international draft, eventually it would probably.

"Hey everybody, it is drags back with you for Red Sox beat and hallelujah. We have good news to report. I'm joined by Alex barth doing a wonderful job as always on 98.5 the sports hub follow Alex barth on Twitter at real Alex barth. The reason I say hallelujah, we have baseball back owners and players reaching an agreement on Thursday afternoon. Ending the 99 day lockout, the first work stopping since the 94 95 strike that wiped out, of course, the 1994 World Series. That means owners and players are going to agree to have a season in 2022. Players will report this Sunday and that means players will come in for their physicals and get ready for the season. We'll have a shortened spring training for the last two weeks in March, of course, and then two and a half weeks of March. And then we will have a spring training week of grapefruit and cactus league games. The first week in April, opening day is April 7th for Major League Baseball, really terrific news, Alex, and I really thought all along that the players and owners. Essentially, this is the kind of the timetable I laid out to you and our audience a couple of weeks ago, even a couple of months ago. I thought we'd see the seasons start right around patriots day, April 15th, and they beat it by a week. And I think that will end up being the Red Sox home opener, I believe, is the plan. So yeah, and kind of like I said last time we were on, right? And yeah, how great is it that I don't have to sit here and pretend to understand how labor negotiations work. That's painful. That was painful, but I think the key to this all along was we knew those deadlines deadlines, air quotes, were BS. Right? And they were just more negotiating chips because they're going to play, it sounds like they're going to play 462. They're going to make up the first 6 games, whatever it was that was officially canceled..

"Pretty surprising threads aren't out there and do you know what they were trying to gather like. I'm going to go. Pros do like under the seats like that. I do not know and no one was able to answer that. Because the astros deny it but the mariners like no really those were there we cover them up and we played the game so i would say there's just an unlimited supply of weird stuff and allegations things that i tried to get to the bottom of as many as i could. I followed every thread. That i could. But there's so many and some of them just don't still don't quite add up the astros faced some there is five million dollar fine draft picks forfeited front office suspensions. But i think a lot of people. And i think the general consensus is that the punishments were not strong enough. Do you get that sense. Is that the consensus. And two were the penalties be harsher if not for the pandemic. That's interesting question on the one of where they strong enough. This is one where the commissioner's office is actually in a tricky spot. Because it's the players association in this case would fight every suspension and then it was the players who were saying you know the opponents who were saying. You didn't punish the astros players enough or at all really. So if you're the commissioner on that one you like your union wouldn't have let me so if you get how from a bargaining standpoint. That was a tricky one. It wasn't great optics because there was a crime. Committed to the sport and the players weren't punished. I mean manfred. Is there primarily to be aggressively khun confrontational with the union. Like so it is a weird to be like i. I don't know. I don't know if that's an interesting point. I think in that one. He knew he's also been negotiating with them for like thirty years and he knew i can either put out this report on one day in january. Try to put this behind where we can fight these one. By one and battle suspensions for players In his things going to drag on forever says a pr standpoint. There may have been a pr miscalculation because it was seen to be not harsh enough. But i think that was the calculation and also because they don't have subpoena power They felt like they had to in order to conduct an investigation. They had to offer immunity. Tried anyone coming in and testifying basically so that's all it why it happened. And then when other players said it wasn't harsh enough That was a gut check. Didn't feel harsh enough. But i'm not sure what can do you know. It's interesting because you talked about the players union and when the players are involved in an fraction it makes it a little interesting because the players union is supposed to be fighting for the players so now that you talked about the position the commissioners in. I'm curious then. The executive committee members of the players union like what was their stance on it. Then if the commissioner can't really come down as hard as he would want to because of the protection of the committee like what was their stance in it. He's are great questions and there are the right ones for the commission the sense because like would it really have been impossible or you're saying it was impossible. Did you pull the executive committee. These are great questions. I can tell you that The executive board which of course changes year to year. And i'm thinking of the players who even right there. It would have been complicated for example garrett cole was on the executive board. He wasn't damned. I'm just is like an intellectual exercise. Will call was an astro in the final. Two years of the astros cheating. He wasn't a hitter but he was a teammate. With these guys who did it. Now he's a yankee. The yankees are mad about this He answers the works for yankee management but he also works on behalf of as a member of the executive board. He works on behalf of the astros players. So he's job in the executive board would be to advocate for l. To date and not be punished so where that almost makes your head spin although complicated dynamics like how would he come down on that would astros players In dodger players on the executive board be opposed to one another. Could the commissioner have gathered that information and dealt with with the union before making his decision. Now that is a. I think you're hitting on where there might be some room to question the process. Because i can tell you from reporting the decision to offer. Immunity happened really quickly. There was like a day or so after that athletic report came out. The commissioner's office was thinking. Okay what do we do. How do we deal with this. Then they were thinking. Is there any way we can get this information without meeting the players. Can we talk to the managers who aren't represented by the union. Can we get all the full story from an ex coach or something like that and they eventually just like nap. Forget it. we're just gonna do what we usually do. Which is awesome unity to talk. And and that's what we're going to. So that's what they did but that decision was made quickly enough with that diligence. That you guys are talking about yeah Those are fair questions for melby. We recently saw some attention. That mets yankees subway series francisco endure whistling signs benches cleared in the course of your reporting in the course of you covering what are the rumors about the state of sign stealing right now. Who's doing it. is it happening. And how greg question. I actually strongly believe that the astros scandal had a chilling effect on the most serious kinds of science dealing because it was a gut check and how many players thought it was wrong. Now they think about it more and also now. A lot of this came from the new technology from high speed cameras to instant replay on the past decade. And it was like all. These new toys did skill scientists for a couple of years and now players have had the chance to reflect on it so i would be surprised if was going on in two thousand seventeen eighteen and nineteen around the league and and to be clear the astros were the worst but other teams are playing in the gray area of this stuff including the yankees and dodgers mmediately. Their themselves admitted there in the grey areas. Now what we saw the yankees mets gandhi. You mentioned was Taiwan walker Tipping his pitches meaning. He's doing something with his actual body chose to throw right and Someone yankee dugout either whistled show was tipping or didn't depending on who you believe but so that's if he was doing that that's actually illegal against the rules and as part of the poll package with the astros redoing but because it didn't involve technology It wouldn't be the kind of violation that would rice level sandal.

League said it will start spring straining as spring training and the regular season as scheduled Reds pitchers and catchers to report about two weeks from tomorrow. I do believe first spring training game February 27th opening day, April, the first USA today says no major league teams will be permitting fans to attend their spring training workouts. But most will have limited fans at their games and Arizona and Florida about 25% capacity. According to the NFL. The official attendance at Raymond James Stadium for Super Bowl 55 will be around 25,000 fans and 30,000 cutouts for the Bucks and Chiefs. We've got the game Sunday here on 700 WLW.

This season on the ice that Columbus Blue Jackets skate at Dallas coverage at 6 30, You'll find it down the dialogue, Fox Sports 13 60. All right, I see Reds early on tonight. I want to deal with the Bengals in the seven o'clock hour on a piece of Paul dinner, Junior wrote from the athletic That'll make your head explode. That will lead us into a topic around 7 20 I saw and read it yesterday and I've saved and I think we can present tonight to have some fun with it. SB Nation wrote something today about Tom Brady. I think we can make a Cincinnati topic tonight in the eight o'clock hour is about Tom Brady being one of the most one of America's most polarizing athletes Today in You know me, I'm always looking to localize it tied in and I thought, well, then who would be the most polarizing Cincinnati sports figures through the years? Round here will do that and more. Let's get to it. We begin with the Reds. Couple of different things developing. We'll see what we make out of it. I was I was struck by a tweet I got last night after the show. I want to say it was who moves from a Rob Mueller. Who said the Reds have created absolutely zero Or even negative interest in their product since a team that's sorely underperformed most of last year. It was his tweet. The redhead created absolutely zero or even negative interest in the product since the team that sorely under performed most of last year, and my response to him was it's striking. That's one word. Another might be frustrating, but I'm going to go back to this well again because of where they were for six years of losing. What they did last offseason at this time. What? We were talking about it This time I go back and look, I keep the show sheets of every show. I do. I go back and look at what we were talking about it in like this week a year ago. And I looked at all the stuff we were talking about involving Mike Moose, Takis and show Go Akiyama and Nick Castano's and figuring out the batting order and figuring out how this team fit in comparison to the rest of the National League Central. We were talking about the starting rotation and how good it would be. And I think now of what I've spent time Topic wise on this offseason. And it hasn't added up. Much at all. There's been very little reaction to the whole shortstop conversation. I think, in some cases because either some don't even know who the names are or have reached the point of Disappointment. And I was talking about this lunch today. They ended last season closer to Winning the division being a winning team than being closer to a rebuilding team. Yet how have they approached this off season? The end of the year on the scale of Ready tow win versus rebuild it. They ended it closer to ready to win, but not good enough. They got in because of it expanded playoffs, and then they were quickly dismissed. And I think the frustrating thing is, I used the analogy over the weekend. It has been a fence straddle this offseason. Straddled the fence. They've really done nothing of significance. Either way in the in the last place you wanna be in sports is fence straddling. You're either going forward or you're rebuilding because staying in the middle, does you? No good. None whatsoever. And this team has tried to fence straddle and just kind of piecemeal it together and then cross their fingers and then hope things are okay. That's frustrating. And I would imagine that indecisiveness has frustrated Reds specifically Dick Williams in years past when he was the general manager of this team. What do you want? Which direction do you want to go? Pick one and go there. A year ago. At this time, they had picked one and they had gone there. Remember how we were feeling and what you were what we were thinking what we were discussing. And one year later. Consider where we are. Up next we'll get into Sean do little what it means for this team and what it means for their payroll.
