Early Voting in Georgia Is up 200% From 2018 Midterm

"There were 15 companies issuing statements condemning Georgia's election integrity law. Do you remember that? You remember that, you remember the all star Major League Baseball. Those woke dummies. They fled the state. They moved the All-Star Game from Atlanta to lily white Colorado. Coca Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola. Costing Atlanta millions and millions of dollars in revenue. In many cases, for black owned businesses and look at today, early voting in Georgia is through the roof. Up 200% from the 2018 midterms. Even up a 150% from the 2020 general election. That sound like voter suppression to you?

without him Been a year Every week's gonna get a shout out from this point on So stay close by great state of Georgia's got an election coming up today And as we showed you before the break Stacey Abrams who thinks she's the governor right now I think she's running for reelection in the state of Georgia She's running on a post in today's primaries But today the Republican side will be decided in the gubernatorial primary between Trump back David perdue and Brian Kemp being combat that's been a pretty fiery race I think we can all agree on that Piers Kemp's been front running a bit Nepal's there but it's all going to be dependent on turnout So it depends what you do But Stacey Abrams in the left have made a career It's been kind of AI an industry for them An industry out of hustling people based on race It's what they do They've lied to you and they Stacey Abrams incentivize the Major League Baseball association to polar All-Star Game out of Georgia because Georgia passed a basic voter integrity measure which as we can see by this headline from just the news today Georgia sees record early voting turnout despite voter suppression claims was garbage the whole time Now as a fan of sports but trying to stay away from woke professional sports I'm trying to stick to college and hockey which I think has been the least woke right When is Major League Baseball association going to apologize for the state of Georgia When are they going to do that Don't you think you owe these folks an apology Hotel rooms were canceled Restaurants that were supposed to be booked were never booked Don't you think you owe them an apology Major League Baseball Lying Being that Georgia voter turnout is set a record now Again showing you how when you wake up every morning what it must be like to be a leftist and be so freaking stupid all the time right Imagine this Imagine being able to claim over the course of an entire year that a Georgia voter ID voter integrity Bill right Was going to suppress minorities from voting finding out that there is record turnout and never having to apologize at all That is what's called privilege You want to talk about privilege There is liberal privilege in this country We all on this show working the conservative content production space where every comma and period is fact checked by dip wads like Bill McCarthy at politic force and Tom kercher The two dumbest people on Bill by the way McCarthy who still I love that you all tweeted him by the way I love it It happens all the time asking why he hasn't collected his 100,000 I like them I actually go and like them myself because I think it's hilarious Bill McCarthy politic force Every time he puts something out ask him why he hasn't collected his $100,000 cash from Dan bongino I'm not kidding That's not a joke I will give this guy a 100,000 You got to pay the IRS I already paid the taxes on it A 100,000 cash Cash just to prove his fact check on me that he wasn't lying He kept weirdly you can't do it We live in a space where we can't put a comma in the wrong spot without some Philip bump Tom kercher political forest Bill McCarthy type loser fact checking our stuff Which is really opinion checking Yet it's strange The Democrats have told everyone got the Major League Baseball association to pull their All-Star Game out of the state of Georgia Out of the state of Georgia over a fairytale and you don't hear a PEEP all you hear is crickets from the fact checkers and everyone else Now Stacey Abrams we played that cut before the break He just keeps humiliating herself This is genuinely one of the worst candidates I have ever seen run for an executive position And that's saying a lot From her comment yesterday with a gaff of all gas or there was the day before recorded comments Georgia is one of the worst states to live in in the country How exactly that's his campaign slogan Abrams for governor this place sucks I am not really sure that that's a good campaign sign I'm even pretty confident that if you sent that over in a design to a printing thing they'd be like are you sure this says what you want it to say Abrams for governor this state blows I'm not sure that's really the way to rock and roll I think the sign guy would be like is this an error I get it No no no It was supposed to be to stay close close No no no we need it Abrams for governor This state blows And his kind science guy is going to be like nah I'm not sure I'm going to print that You guys are going to ask for a refund okay That Stacey Abrams So you think she was bad enough right She comes out today and says again another just peak stupid black hole vortex of stupidity comment That record voter turnout has nothing to do with voter suppression.

"Published this big expose that the Kremlin supposedly is issuing a memorandum or has issued a memorandum, advancing Tucker Carlson's commentary from Fox News. In Russia, in other words, mother Jones and David corn alleging if you know anything about David corn, this is not a guy who's in the middle. He's not objective. He's a far left journalist. But the far left narrative is that Tucker Carlson of Fox News channel is an agent or a pawn or a tool of Vladimir Putin. So riddle me this Batman, what are you going to do if we get into a major showdown with China, what are they going to say about the LeBron James of the world? As it applies to China. What are they going to do with the NBA or Major League Baseball or any of these big woke professional sports leagues that are in bed with China? What are they going to do about Facebook and all these big companies and big tech in bed with China? If China assists Russia and according to the what the Biden administration is saying, that will absolutely be a bridge too far.

"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.

"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.

"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..

Regular Season (MM #3999)

"The NASA minute. With Kevin mason. I talked about this back in like December when it was first announced that baseball was going on strike. Major League Baseball owners had locked out the players and they were going to be on strike and they were going to fight for. Well, who knows what? I'm still kind of confused, but I'm not. Because right now you've got to pick. Are you siding with the billionaires who own the clubs or the millionaires who want to make more money? The interesting thing here is, it's not about them making more money. It's about the players who are just coming up about the players who are in the minor leagues. They're worried about the future of baseball for players because their shelf life is so short. But of course, they've now announced that while spring training is on hold and we've already canceled the first two series or about the first week of the regular season. And of course, nobody's talking. They've come to an impasse because the bottom line is the owners don't care. Now there have been strikes in baseball before and the fans have gone away, but they end up coming back. Will it be different this time? Nobody knows, but don't get ready for baseball anytime soon because I have a feeling this strike, no spring training, no regular season, and who knows, maybe not even a playoffs or a World Series this year. We'll have to see.

No, the NFL Is Not Considered a Nonprofit

"Here is the deal. It is true, according to snopes and just because it snopes doesn't mean it's wrong. NFL is a sports league that generates an estimated 9.5 billion revenue each year, enjoyed past tense at the status of being a tax exempt nonprofit organization. A status that applied to the National Hockey League, the PGA Tour in Major League Baseball, but the key to understanding the exemption is realizing it does not apply to the dozens of individual teams, who are the footballs primary moneymakers, but only a small part the NFL league office. And even then the NFL league office stopped its nonprofit status. I think because people complained about it.

Understanding MLB's Vaccine Discrimination Scandal

"Well, I think it would surprise a lot of people to learn that Major League Baseball is engaging in the very same sort of tyrannical vaccine mandates that the government of Canada is doing and some of these other governments as well. So with us right now, our two people that are speaking out against this, Katie and Casey, who are too wives of either Major League Baseball players or a current professional baseball coach, and they're outraged about this, and they want you to know about it and we're a national program and it's time for all of our listeners to contact their local baseball teams and tell them that they've had enough of this Katie and Casey welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Thank you for having us. Thank you so much. All right, so Katie, let's start with you. What is the current position of Major League Baseball when it comes to the vaccine? So our understanding and what MLB released in their memo is that they are mandating current minor league coaches and staff that will be on field as a segregated class alone to be current on their vaccines as well as the ongoing boosters every 6 months to maintain employment on the field. So that counts for all managers. Is that right? All coaches. At this point, the mandate is very specific in singling out this particular group of minor league coaches and on field staff and this is the most unprotected class in all of Major League Baseball. They don't have a union representing them. They don't have the type of robust bank accounts where they really have a choice and that's one of our greatest grievances is that this class as of right now is the only singled out class in this particular mandate.

John Solomon Calls in to Discuss the Job Creators Network

"I'm just talking a little about job creators network and this Kavanaugh deadline today. How do you read the tea leaves on this thing? Where's it going? Well, listen, first off, I better understand 30 years. And when I came to this town, there was only one small business lobby. It's called NFIB, the national federation of independent businesses and they have gone silent in the last 5 ten years. You don't see them here. And job creators network has become one of the most forceful voices in all of corporate America, but particularly for Main Street America in small business. So over the course of this year, they've done a lot of big things. They sued Major League Baseball to call attention to the economic losses from moving the All-Star Game to from Atlanta to Denver. They got involved in some of these mandates. And now with this particular mandate, the private businessman that they've gotten to the Supreme Court was one of the I think big challenges. And I think it's going to sound, is there in federal law, the capability for government on its own executive branch to impose upon business and requirements, they get their employees vaccinated. A lot of people that I've talked to legal experts both on the left and right think this is a dubious power that Biden has assumed. And so I think this court is going to look, it's a 6 three conservative court, particularly when you look at economic and economic freedom issues. Robert says to be more consistent with the other 5 conservative justices, a 6 three pro anti regulatory coalition. I think probably the court is going to come down and say that this is unconstitutional and it can't be done. But we'll have to wait and see this is going to be one of the first big tests of big government's power under the Biden administration. But a lot of the experts I'm talking to expect the court to either be 6 three 5 four saying that this doesn't exist in law the power to do this doesn't exist a mob and only Congress can bestow that power to the executive branch. You always pucker when you're talking about John Roberts because he

Millionaires And Billionaires (MM #3919)

"The NASA minute. With Kevin mason I know it's a rhetorical question, but should we ever feel sorry for millionaires or billionaires? The reason I ask is people are asking that online. If you're following along with what's going on in Major League Baseball right now, you know, the players have been locked out because they're fighting about new contract terms with the owners. The players are pleading, well, not poverty, per se, but pleading, it's just not fair that they're so entitled to the owners who, while they're making millions, the owners are making billions. And even the teams that will stink, even the small market teams that don't ever compete are still worth billions upon billions of dollars. Not only their owners, but their teams. So what's the player to do? Technically I guess they're on strike right now, and we'll see what happens come February when it's time to go to spring training. And I understand we shouldn't feel sorry, but everything I read says, please should feel sorry for the players. An average major league player's career lasts 5 years, and in the meantime, it takes some time ten years to get there. Think about it. Should you feel sorry for the millionaires?

"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. And it's often the kind of thing that one player can do on his own. Doesn't require a systemic organizational culture. Right it can just be juan de to the yankee relievers. Who it was. He might have seen some like yo fastball. And it's not like the gm and the manager were involved right so that that obviously again it's hard to prove a negative and i'd hate to you know sit here and say that something's not happening and we just discovered it yet but talking to players interacting with offices. I really don't think there's serious electronic signs thing going on right now. The pandemic put a chilling effect on a little. Because you literally couldn't use the clubhouse in the same way because of the code protocols but also just the morality the players now cnn after the astros the book is cheated the inside story of the astros colorful history of signs. Stealing is available now. Where.

"Away was in but as luck. Whatever jason boy did. La in washington release. Is your new york. Liberty are in the playoffs. They secure that acu man what let's go with a twelve and twenty let listen One ten more games last season which is great. Okay well let me. Just say this. I you never see you will sometimes see it in a situation like this where it's like such and such team needs this team to lose the negative that happens i have. I can't remember the last time i saw where you needed to teams to lose for you to get in and then that team got in. That said free at the snuck. Forget this this is this is the way. The system works in the system york liberties of the play offs baby. And i love it. I love it. Whoever are in the play offs. And look like i said i'm bringing bringing a in because they lynn dream dreamlike. I talked about. I'm still ripping as you see. We didn't make the playoffs but fourteen to make the playoffs with a twelve twenty record. I think it was like a point. Thirty four wins in the lowest ever in wnba history but some that was something that is momentum. It's like. I agree with you and you know what i'm hearing. I'm the liberty made history. That's i mean you know it's a fact and like you said y'all face now. The number five of team. The phoenix mercury in a single nation game. So i don't know. I consider things like that. You know where everyone talks about it in sports. I don't care how skilled you are. It always takes a little luck to win a championship. It's yes always and sometimes the love could be just as simple as your team staying healthy because that's that's very fortunate if you have a healthy team at the end of the year we see all the time. Nba wmba people are struggling to the finish line. Trying to stay healthy be healthy. So the new york liberty there little bit of luck was that on the last day of the regular season. Two teams did not win. And they're in. I don't know jason. But i think that's momentum so in this single limitation game where you only have to win one game to get into the next round. What are your thoughts on that. i mean. well. Listen i'm excited. I'm excited for the team. I'm hoping diana tarazi to your point about injuries. And i she listen i. It's an opportunity to get a to get a little extra rest for her. She's not feeling up to it. Maybe don't play. Oh okay listen. I the fact that the liberty and the knicks have both been in the postseason in calendar year. I don't take it lightly. That's a good point. Yes yes we snuck in. But like i'm not one of these rings or nothing people like i've seen my team struggle for so long that i just want to be in the mix. I just love being in the mix. I love seeing the postseason. If we get trounced okay that happened. But we were in the mix for the knicks. Listen it was disappointing. Luzia course but being in the mix having home court like is. That is a thing that i have experienced all too rarely in my phantom shine following a new york professional basketball so i just enjoy it like i just enjoy it. Bring on the highway to see it. I liked that to that point. I agree. I think that there there can be growth without winning a championship. Of course when you're on those programs that are used to winning of course this championship or bus. But everybody ain't able. I wanted to ask you something though. Jason there's been a lot of talk. The nba was doing as well. But there's been a lot of talk about single elimination games in professional sports. What are your thoughts on that. Because there's been an. I see y'all tweets. I don't know which i'll want me to do. I can't change the playoff format. But i've seen fans tweet me that they don't like the playoff format of a single emanation. Because in pro sports we need to do series to determine. Who's the best team over extended amount of time. What are your thoughts on a single elimination games. I love the drama and the excitement is off the charts. Always because you get you get the absolute highest amount of effort and buy in from jump in a single game that said me personally. I like a series whether it's five or seven game series even three i. I wanna see the better team move on or the team that had the most answers for the other team move on. I just i love the excitement again. But there's a level of flu penis in a single elimination that to me while it's exciting is unfair to both teams. What are you saying. I think it's tough. I feel like the single elimination. Let's leave it for march madness. That's what martin madness march madness that you could have a number one team. Look my yukon team. This is what i was terrified of. We were the number seed going into my senior year. We were undefeated. Hadn't lost a game. I'm terrified because that does not matter in the nc double a. championships because whether or not we won lost one game or zero games if somebody beat us in the round of thirty two or sixty four. We're outta there. It doesn't matter in so to me. It's like oh you work all season long for a certain ranking and then you could get knocked out like you said on the flute game. We had a shooting night. But we're clearly the better team said that. Yeah having said that i get why the wnba did it. I get why again the business we. I'm just so that people can understand you get why the business did it because single emanation brings all the drama that you talk about. It brings the excitement. It brings the heartbreak and it brings the fans mad. And i don't know but if the fans are mad or happy it doesn't matter they're invested in so that you can get out of that the better so i get it for business wise but as a player if i if i earned a certain seed i wanna be able to play out and see where we go from here. I'm hopeful like the nba. Moving from a five game opening series. Two seven game series throughout that to your point. This is a way to generate excitement. Get people invested. Get new is watching the sport and maximizing the opportunity for them to witness something really dramatic and that over time we will get those series because to me like as a sports fan is a fan of basketball to me like this the strategic play the counters the changes the way teams mismatches. The adjustments that's all part of the experience of following the spore in his like the depth. And you realize like how much thought goes into these. The preparation for these m. are have a bad game and then back in and you know they're going to bounce back and kill like so. I hope that we get to a point where we we can see that earlier in the w playoffs and real quick. I want to just break down the the playoff matchup so that people can understand so the first round that single elimination that we're talking about. There's two games. Your new york liberty against the phoenix mercury as we talked about and then on the other side of the bracket the dallas wings are going to be playing against the chicago sky single elimination so the winners of those gains will go on for another single elimination. Round game seattle's waiting for the winner of the new york. Liberty phoenix matchup in the minnesota's waiting for the winner of the dallas chicago match up. Then the winner of that ground will go on to now a best of five series so think about the as of single elimination single elimination. Best of five. That's pretty wild. And then the connecticut sun we'll be waiting on the winner of that seattle game and then the vegas ace's will.

"Three last week. Usa gymnasts stars simone biles alley razman and michaela. Rony and maggie nicols testified before the senate on the sexual abuse investigation involving the former usa gymnastics team. Dr larry nassar. The gymnasts sauce received an apology from fbi director. Christopher ray for the handling of the case however data policy is far from the justice the hundreds of female literally hundreds hundreds over two hundred female gymnasts deserve after nasser's widespread abuse. What's alarming here. Is that not only did. Usa gymnastics do an awful job in their handling of this case but now we find out. The fbi also failed in numerous ways. One of the fbi agents handling the case has been fired. The other was able to retire without receiving any punishment. I guess the question is. Why has this system continued to fail these athletes. Yeah i mean look. People are starting to see more more but athletic. Sports is a business. Athletes are seen as a product. So when you start to think in those terms of gymnastics is the business. So that everyone's gonna make sure that the businesses okay. You have to make sure the businesses running. We have to get to the olympics. We have to perform. We have to excel well if the product is surf suffering like the athlete. Even when you think about emotions. Mental health is now a thing that's talked about a lot but if you look at the history of sports mental health has never been a thing for athletes. because we're the product riposted just perform and be almost mechanic. You see the nfl. What they're doing now with the celebrations like athletes and their personalities in their feelings are not a part of the business that that's like the real answer that people just don't it's simple and his and you can look at it across all of sports. How athletes are treated how their mental health is treated how their feelings are treated. Athletes get thrown away. Left and right. Isaiah isaiah thomas for the boston celtics. We'd all know his story. His sister passed away during the playoffs. In what did he do. He played in the playoffs in bassett. Nobody from the celtics told him. No man take care of yourself. We got you next. No-one said that because why they traded him away the very next season even though he gave his blood sweat and all of his tears to that organization and even after he pleaded to stay with them. So i gave all those examples to say that. When you look at sports and how it's managed the business is the only thing that matters to a lot of people and so the women didn't. I think you could argue. In in the specific case of isaiah thomas that and i think you could argue very persuasively that that the reputation that that organization got from that has stayed with them and has had a chilling effect on the way players. I think view the celtics. The thing is with the nba. The you have thirty teams. There's a players association. There's choices like usa gymnastics. They're the only game in town. These athletes had no choice. But to work through this organization that was simultaneously covering up the crimes of larry nassar and other coaches who had stepped over the line either. Abusing athletes verbally physically. Or what have you i. I keep thinking about The criticism of simone biles during the olympics. It's and and the fact that here. We are twenty twenty one. This is years now after the fallout from this case years after nassar was committing these crimes without any seeming penalty to him and where are the former execs from usa gymnastics. Where why is it. Always simone and michaela and allie razman out there talking about what happened. They of already been the focus of this already spoken at length about what happened here in the spotlight all the time. They were criticized no matter what they do despite having lived through all this stuff. What about the people like who actually allowed this to go on that actually like were people with some sort of management power within. us agent. Why is it that we never hear from them. Any of these like anyone any question. Where are they now. Basically in a sense of. I think the us gymnastics. They need to clean house. Top the bottom. Clean it all out. It's rotten there. It stinks is right like there's nothing like the more that these gymnasts talk the more that i'm like. How like how did so many people to your point. That works for usa gymnastics. How how do you know what's going on like see. That's what i'm like an. I know myself so i just like i can speak first hand. I know if i was management. Look i'm an executive right now for the atlanta dream if i get a even a wealth of something fishy like that like something crazy like that. I'm setting it off like i'm a set it off. I'm a ring the alarm. i'm a set it off. I don't care about this season. And i think that people are starting to realize that about us. Two things have to function certain way. People have to function a certain way a professional manner. We don't care otherwise like the sports is is a certain thing that is we're talking about these women's lives in a sense of you know listening to ali talk and i i was on the bob. Costas show with her and listen to her talk. She said after they talked to the senator after they do an interview. And after they relive what happened she says sometimes she's struggles for two weeks afterwards. She's de habilitated sometimes. Can't move just it's still there. This is still a real thing in their world is not like. Oh yeah. That happened before now. These women are being strong in telling their story. They are being strong telling their story. But these women are still hurt. Why do they have to be the only ones constantly telling their story. I feel like it's you know at this point. We're continuing to put them through it. You know what. I mean like i again. Like where are any of the executives that were involved in in usa or with the us. olympic committee. Like who who dealt with usa gymnastics. Who were there at the time that this was going. What did they know about it. What can they say about it. What what reforms have been put in place. How did this slip through. Because reports were filed. Like people show report commissioned courts were filed people later. Come out knew about this before it broke. It was constantly being suppressed. The fbi agent in charge. Who was fired was fired because he was asked. Why do they knew about the case. And then he later lied on interview and then he's been let go but wherever any of these people to talk about what happened because from the perspective of the athletes. We understand what happened. They had no power in that situation to alter anything that was happening to change like. They did what they were supposed to do. They competed and they survive the situation. But who what about any of the people at the controls. It's just wild to me that we don't hear from them is wild in the hole. So to that point the entire board of.

"If someone gets sick at that point what doctors and public health officials have told Major League Baseball on the players is that you do not necessarily have to shut down if we have the testing if we can contain this if the entire room has not been infected well we're going to have much bigger rosters and that is a big part of this whole plan because Scott when you take into account the possibility of even a small outbreak inside of a a clubhouse as well as playing in the heat which in Phoenix is going to be a hundred a hundred ten degrees during the summer you're going to need a bigger roster and that's something that I think Major League Baseball is willing to get on board with and certainly the players are going to want so the may return date would depend on a number of concerns being addressed some officials believe a June opening date could be more realistic according to sources also from the baseball world hall of Famer al que line has died the Tigers great played all twenty two years of his career in Detroit became known as Mr tiger he was an all star in fifteen of his twenty two seasons a ten time gold glove winner in right field is a member of the three thousand hit club in retirement he joined the Tigers broadcasting team and continue to work for the Tigers after his retirement from the booth in two thousand two okay line was eighty five more general like ESPN radio from baseball to the NBA at the time the association shop things down it was an initial thirty day hiatus during the season but obviously longer than that and if the NBA's even able to return there are a lot of questions there as well Adam silver the commissioner on Twitter on Monday for the first week first two weeks we were looking at more specific scenarios in terms of if we start this day what will that mean for the regular season when when the playoffs begin when would they conclude and again what I've learned over the last few weeks is that we just have too little information to make those sort of projections start I will say though that as I look out into the summer there does come a point at which we would start impacting next season now we even there I think a few weeks ago nobody thought we were talking about even a potential impact on next season independent of what we might choose to do to finish our regular season and playoffs I think there's there's no doubt at this point as a country we're following the right course but again what I'm learning just as we begin this interview by saying look how little we knew on March eleventh and twelfth in terms of where we are today must some of the models were wildly off you know even in early March when what was happening in China and Europe was widely known there still weren't widespread predictions that we find ourselves in place we are today and so it doesn't actually there for me things will be worse a month from now what I've learned from that is again not to try to make predictions and that to be true to the data we know our priorities in terms of health and safety but in fact he knows things in where we'd be in may Mr Adam silver who's also talking about the viability of testing is what we heard same concerns from baseball in order to make a return you have to have more testing available the NBA's but exploring the viability of rapid blood testing devices similar to the ones that shoes for diabetes get results in minutes as opposed to days and that could enable sports like the NBA to map out a plan to return NBA officials along with the Players Association of assessing the viability of that ESPN's Baxter Holmes in an ideal world and it's obviously after government approval of public health agencies they could envision a scenario in which you could line up various players essential team staff members and in an ideal world everybody tested and potentially try to create a safe environment now there's a lot of hurdles but the very first major critical thing that has to happen is a rapid response testing is currently with the the NBA and the NBA players you're looking at they're also sensitive obviously the fact that testing nationwide remains a problem and so they don't want to jump the line so to speak and understand there's a lot of health care workers and the people out there to do that right now more than the NBA does then there's the NBA outlining the draft process for teams as well teams are not allowed to conduct in person work out to watch live video of workouts on draft eligible players until further notice the NBA sending a memo to teams on Monday teams can conduct virtual interviews with players although they can't be longer than four hours with any single player sports general night ESPN radio golf trying to find a path to return as well this was supposed to be masters week at Augusta but obviously that's been postponed it's now back on the map for later this fall the masters rescheduled for November golf organizer's announcing the twenty twenty revamped schedule on Monday PGA championship first week of August U. S. open rescheduled for mid September PGA still looking to get back on the course and how fans of PGA tour events not really a probability ESPN's Michael Collins the the masters the PGA of America the USGA and PGA tour and art is the one that runs the open championship and there's only one that quote unquote cancel but they didn't really cancel they just said the open is not going to happen this year it's going to happen next year and the reason that they did that was insurance they got insurance policy so you say you postpone it thank you still going to have it you'll get the money I'm gonna say you cancel it still get the money HM this year was supposed is the one hundred forty ninth playing of the open championship and it's at royal St George's next year was supposed to be insane man threw for one fifty so by canceling it this year then they don't have to be like we're going to do for the night they have seen interviews with weight one fifty is not yeah I wanna talk about is the virus suggests that their day so in five canceling it now to give you like all right we're good but the masters came out and said it this event that's happening for them in November November ninth to the fifteenth that whole week they told all the call patrons not fans of spectators their patrons if you got a ticket patron gets but in here come all which surprised me that they would make an announcement like that even though their event will be the last thing that's played why that surprise you because I would assume that in a situation like this it would be better to be more precautions then to get people's hopes up too high we're just happy to be out there playing again golf is the one sport where social distancing is pretty easy you can play as a one like you don't even have to play is too so you can just have every guy go out there all right you go are you gonna be like a flume ride somebody get love riding a righty you stand in line for some guy you next next night like like a ski slope and guys could play by themselves or to complete two sons and they don't have to stand next near one another fans on the other hand we're not that far away from when they were like no no groove bigger to fifty you gonna tell me you're going to keep fifty people around the ninth green at Augusta when tiger is coming up I don't think so thank you are you going to keep it was six feet apart on the eighteenth at Augusta I don't care how calm and nice you are you don't think you can try to set them chairs out here if you want but people that are standing behind their it's going to be a gargantuan task to keep people social distance in that way that being said by November we might be at a point and that's very this is why they might have done it too we might be at a point at No in November when you just go yeah you know what we're good you know everyone everyone plan and caddy and has been tested and they're all negative there or or past the point where where you know they've had it and now don't have it anymore or never had it never will and so if we get to that point by November fine but it's just that's an aggressive play by a place not known for being overly aggressive we'll see how the golf world looks by the time we get through the summer and on into the fall PGA championship in August U. S. open rescheduled for mid September the open championship next for this year going can we go coming up in the morning and Trevor Immelman in two thousand eight masters champion will be among the guests who will join going can we go at eight o'clock eastern sports are all night ESPN radio Dana white meanwhile is pushing for with UFC two forty nine that will take place on April eighteenth he's targeted that day all along and is trying to keep it he tweeted that the fight is on one hundred percent the location no still little known ESPN's Ariel Helwani they have looked pretty much all over the planet for placeholders card and they have settled on the west coast of the United States they are very close to finalizing a location and they're not only going to hold this event on April eighteenth in this location on the west coast the United States but the plan is to hold multiple locations over the next month or so so they can make this sort of make shift UFC headquarters it's pretty amazing the first one will obviously be the one on April eighteenth but they're not telling anyone where exactly this will be they're not telling the fighters the managers they're keeping it as close to the vest as possible so that it doesn't get out nothing like a little surprise here's where less than two weeks away and then when you look at the opponent okay Ferguson's opponent doesn't have the name recognition as a B. but what more can you tell us about Justin Gage G. just to gauge is one of the most exciting fighters in the UFC he's a a fighter's fighter the fans love them he is a very fan friendly fighters won his last three fights in a row and all of them have come via first round finish in fact he was in talks to fight Conor McGregor later on this summer but of course all of this changed those plans he is one of the best fighters on the planet one of the best divisions on the planet the hundred fifty five pound division it's a very legit fight of course it's not the hubby Tony fight that we all wanted but this is pretty much the next best thing it's a great fight on paper the only version and gauge you will meet UFC two forty nine meanwhile as our doctor in the house the association of ringside physicians issuing a statement Monday quote any combat sport taking place during this global pandemic places the athletes officials and anyone else involved under unnecessary risk of infection and transmission in addition combat sport athletes often require medical attention after about we don't wish.

"Apparently to sixty one thirty eight. I'm your host Mark Paulie as always. I'm joined by Bryson. How are you bracing doing? Okay how are you yeah? It's same since last week. Nothing is chance. It's like groundhog day. I think we have a little bit of news to work with today. There is discussions Major League baseball rumors flying around that the commissioner and the Commissioner's Office are trying to get kind of what we were talking about. Last week with Isolating players in spring training places and playing games with no fans there so I guess we can talk about that. I don't think there's anything else talking about but I mean right off the bat you brought this up in the last episode in our seeing it kind of Translate into reality this episode to. What do you think about this? And what do you think this is actually GonNa Happen? Yeah well you know. It's not much surprised if you think about it based on on we. We don't really know the logistics of this whole virus other than we need to stay away from each other in social distance. Oh and we all know The rest and I guess it translates to sports as well if there's if there's any hope for anything to return Aids probably GONNA. It's almost a hundred percent can be with no fans and be. It's probably going to be in like certain locations like we mentioned last week where players are also in the same boat as us as they're going to be quarantined together rather than being all over the countries we discussed Just because of the spread so if it does come back you know you will be seeing teams you know how many cities that that's all up for discussion. But they'll all be kind of in one bubble there one bubble that we all playing at neutral sites and It's not much of a surprise at all just based on however when talking about it and again There was news today. Saying like you said Baseball's considering playing in an empty spring training parks with no fans and quarantine players and again. It comes with a huge like a really complex plan ahead. It's going to be a lot of thinking there's GonNa be a lot of problem solving lots of things to work around And that's without the financial parts as we've discussed how much of an impact. That's already cost of the game. And I guess you know the the economy itself around the world and once you know that's figured out and if there is an all clear in this virus you know everyone gets better from what's going on and you're not gonna see everything. Go back to normal right away. I think you need to be really cautious about a second wave of this of it's spreading is which is why you know you have to be very cautious and that's why we won't be going back to even if this gets better we won't be going back to our regular lives at first it's. Kinda going to be a phase where easing easing easing back into reality. And I think that starts with Sports and in central locations like we discussed and actually since we've discussed that There's been even as you know in the NBA. Where I kind of started? The reference are where we heard about this. I actually the NBA itself went from that to bubble idea from what I mentioned last week to looking at just one location for US postseason if it came back and that's going to be that would be Las Vegas that's the ideal location for a MBA postseason because of all the hotels around and it's gone from that to one location. I think it's really you know. It's people are really starting to be really cautious and really precautionary about this. So you know baseball again. We discuss this about all the different ballparks as well in the Arizona and Florida area if you WanNa talk about starting Spring Training Location. So it's not a surprise at all it's just gonNa be it's GonNa be a very complex plan ahead and I think This is the way it's going to be. I don't know how long it'll take again. That all depends on you know if they will. You know how long it will take to develop a vaccine and maybe we know we learn more about those virus. But you know it's GonNa be it's GonNa be a bit. Even a sports comes back. It won't it's not GonNa be you know as its usual thing every day no matter what sport you're watching It's GonNa come back with a cautious plan. Just like you know how just like the everyday world with the economy itself. It's not gonNA come back all at once it'll come back in phases we're gonNA either way back into reality. It's really seeming like the possibilities of how the season can go on for whether it's major league baseball whether it's something else is just slowly and slowly the doors are starting to close and we have less and less possibilities of the season actually happening because as you mentioned. Nba going from yeah. Well we'll start up this season. Whatever June July? And then okay. We'll play into bubbles in two different cities to okay. We'll play in one city and just postseason like the possibilities are closing and it's honestly I messaged you earlier this week in our group It seems like there's an increasingly less and less chance of baseball. Being played with all these changes that are being bounced around with you know going straight to the postseason or having the postseason in December or playing many doubleheaders game or expanding the rosters to twenty nine players with all these different changes. It's like how much is actually gonNA look like spawned. How is it really worth it to make all these changes and as I talked about last week? Put the health of players on the line. Just get a few games in that ultimately aren't even going to be fair because you're playing under all these new rules so I don't ultimately I don't know if there's a point in having a season if you're changing so much and if the actual you know like health impacts are so dramatic that it's not worth it. It's too damaging to have a season so all that to say if I had to predict right now I don't think there will be a season. We talked last week about the three requirements. Mutually Baseball is set to start their season again. And it's just such a high bar to match in to accomplish all three of those colds that I don't see something happening this year. Yeah yeah the door. The doors closing ends in the reality. It's closing fast. It's not closing slowly. It's closing fast and you know with with baseball. You know they'll be the I would say maybe the third or Fourth League in the big for North America to cancel the season just because you know the NHL and NBA around this time On a regular schedule they were going to be their regular season. Supposed to wrap around this time and playoffs are supposed to start so I end. Obviously that means they're usually done in May or June while baseball is played until November at the latest on it usual standpoint. And that's why they'll be the last T- they'll be the last to pull the plug and there's a report today out of the NBA that the NBA is actually Creating a plan or they've been creating a plan about learning about the financial part of the game of cancelling the season I think the NBA again. They were the ones that suspended their their league. I out of everyone in North America. And they might they might. They might be the first to cancel it for the rest of the year. We we've heard about the optimism. Throw the sports saying they're gonNA take their time. They don't mind playing later dates. I don't mind playing a neutral sites. We all know the possibility that they WANNA do the game going again. And if the NBA pulls the plug which is increasingly likely. They won't make a decision probably for. I would say another month or two but if they're talking about shutting the season down rather than restarting his. That's what we've learned. It's not good. It's not good at all and again for baseball we've discussed. This is well last week. We you mentioned how players are going to be thrown out a routine and you men and you just mentioned as well how. It's you know how. How different is the game going to be? Even if he comes back and we've looked at possibilities expanded rosters may be six men rotations and other ideas like that and you know it's just out of the traditional way baseball like you said it's going to be very different You know the sites are going to be different but you mentioned a good point. The game itself is going to be different. And that's why you know. Is it really worth it? And I think that's possibly we all have to take in just because of how much this virus has spread. And you know it's not exactly. We're not exactly flattening the curve right now. It's obviously worse in certain parts of the world or countries. But it's just taking a little bit longer than it was initially thought of which is fully expected based off of where we were thirty days ago where we are now. We still don't know a lot about this virus we know as its spreads quick. And we've got to stay away from each other and I think that's going to be a major issue for bringing sports back in. That's why people also believe sports will be one of the last things that come back from the from the actual you know from an economy standpoint and from the world and we do know today that President trump is actually a phone call with all major sports commissioners around the game. It was supposed to start at twelve. We're we're recording at twelve thirty right now so that includes obviously all the all the major sports around the world and I really don't know what to take if it's a good thing or a bad thing lots people were saying. It's going to be a good thing. Lots of people saying it's a bad thing in my opinion. I don't think it's a good thing at all. I think it's a bad thing. But maybe they're talking about the basics of problems with the border other things like that. I'm just catching up to speed with all the commission. I think it's a really good idea. Navy exchange some ideas. But I don't necessarily look at this as a very good thing for any of the sports to come back in the near future. Yeah I don't think this was a good thing that call. I was going to bring this up but I think the only way excuses at the bad thing. You're not gonNa have the president telling these four commissioners that yeah. These sports are going to be back in June. Because you know Toronto saying obviously it's city lead functions but no city lead events until the end of June. You have so many strong. I don't see the president of the United States saying whatever this is going to happen by this deadline. I don't think it's good news. I think online. It's going to be bad news. And worse case scenario we could see the president telling these commissioners to telling them a date. Maybe you know mid-july maybe August that they're expecting to be cleared up in order to play the season so I think we earlier in this situation. We thought that. Mlb had time on their hands. I don't think that's true now. Because we're seeing they still have one hundred sixty two games to get through everyone alice. Nhl Mba was towards the end of.

"We have seen some of this kind of response elsewhere to for example you mentioned the NHL earlier right. Well you know there was the the rumblings of and there was obviously the. There's there's hockey teams in the On the West Coast as well for some time. There were sort of operating in a minor league a yet autonomous fashion at relatively high quality almost very similar to the baseball situation and and Lo and behold when the world hockey association gets up running in the late sixties sixties or early seventies. The rumblings at least are you know in the late sixties that hastened at h l just with the six expansion teams in sixty seven. But but a a a nice drip if you will a solid steady year-by-year drip of more franchises in response. And I guess that's what it takes a sort of that sort of existential threat but it also I think I guess the subtexts that too is there's always the sort of lurking antitrust exemption thing out there or to write in baseball certainly didn't want to give that away In their lifetimes either exactly. And that's part of the reason. The Washington senators became new expansion team because of the antitrust threat that that was always there. I mean It was when Oliver Wendell. Wendell Holmes Knicks Knicks US makes a A ruling in the Supreme Court's GonNa be Kinda hard to turn over but Major League Baseball. Go through all the rigmarole they'd have to go through in court So that's why they caved in As as far as the Washington senators in nineteen sixty one concerned so give us a sense France then of of of maybe how and we obviously jump around on the show but how how are the markets kind of being determined right. You're obviously mentioning men with the with the dough and but I in terms of you know to to to the extent that there was anything resembling assembling master plan. And I I you could make the argument that the Continental League was perhaps one of those sort of I you know maybe masterplans or accelerated such as a so y those markets Aside from the fact that there was an absence of top tier professional baseball in the cities why those cities and particularly think and Dur for. I don't know how rational or well thought out. Would you say in the later. Years was the decision making around which markets I would ultimately get major league baseball franchises as the as the sixties and Seventies. You know sort of played out boy. That's a tough puzzles a question. I'll tell you Early on in like sixty one and sixty two. They had to take care of Washington they had to take their New York and Los Angeles List was natural because of the dodgers being out there and Houston was an up and growing city Which is why they got hold? Forty five The the next expansion until nineteen sixty nine And then you know that included Kansas City. Seattle San Diego in Montreal interesting story about Houston That's actually stories about the Colt. Forty five's and their first couple of years. They played an All Dilapidated Stadium Colt Colt. Forty Five Stadium and One of the great ball players of all time was a hall of Famer named Richie. Ashburn burn and Ritchie played most of his career with the phillies and the also played with the with the cubs and he played his last year. The first year is in New York. You work met but but Cho forty-five stadium was around before the Astrodome in. Houston you absolutely have to have a dumb stadium because it's hot. It's humid and the bugs. There are amazing and rich Hash. Burn once said that Houston is the only town we're winning. We're insect repellent instead of perfume. which I thought it was just a great statement about the need for the ASTRODOME team? Team is actually. It's fascinating but also interesting to me to that fat. There is a team that I was thinking about. It seems kind of quaint most naive by today's modern comparison but the mets having to play in the old Polo grounds which had frankly that fallen blonde into dilapidation and and basically ten lists for those couple of years or maybe the titans were there as well for a short period of time while their new stadium. Dating was being built. The forty fives in you know. You're being charitable I think in describing what what that was like and I don't even know if the Astrodome was even in the mix six or with promised as part of a rationale of getting Houston a franchise you look at what the debacle in Seattle where. They didn't even really fully have a plan in for a stadium or it was mired in politics and whatnot. So I guess my question is today A. It's obviously you know you need that commitment to be there before. Frankly you're going to give him get a franchise major league soccer being a really good example of that right. No no stadium no team but it seems really interesting how Major League Baseball would allow for expansion without maybe some of the the TS crossed. Roster the is dotted when it came to suitable stadiums in some of these cases. Well keep in mind this early in the process to the astrodome was in the mix when when When they moved to Houston or were they when they gave the franchise to Houston an interesting story about the astrodome? If if you don't mind me give you another one The the Colt forty five's had a relief pitcher named Jim who was a really good relief. Pitcher he you know he would have the era of around two point. Four two point five through hard at good stuff was very effective. And what was not a very good team Unfortunately he developed cancer her. It was a really serious form of cancer and he had to have a lot of surgeries and there were examples of him. Pitching in Games For the Colt forty five's and he had and had surgery on his leg and they wrap the leg but the blood was seeping through. And it's just a horrible story but his one goal was to live long enough to. Let's see the opening of the astrodome. And unfortunately he didn't. He passed away during the off season before it opens but he actually has the world's biggest tombstone because his family took his ashes spread his ashes into the Astrodome as it was being built. So it's kind of a neat story about a guy who who just love. The game was a very good player. Left a little bit too early well give us a sense then. Sort of the sort of from a longitudinal perspective. How how would you describe the process by which Major League Baseball looks at expansion? Maybe sort of an on through the side door of relocation around this time because it's pretty clear that the late fifties you know salvo of all those teams you know you have three teams in the mid fifties and then obviously obviously the the exclamation point of the dodgers and the giants moving westward. That really you know. That's that's sends a signal that that that westward Ho is the move is the mindset and the mantra but I guess I'm really curious as to sort of the the rhyme or reason to the extent that there was such a driven even by economics is driven by television. You mentioned air travel. I'm curious to sort of the how and the wear that Major League baseball overtime over time or was it maybe sort of incremental and not sort of super long term in in thinking I think in many ways it was incremental but I think there was always as a basic logic there and the original expansion I think was a a reaction to the continental league but after that you know they're looking for areas that had population growth. Obviously they could support team attractive places to go. So you're looking for a stadium. That's already there or stadium. It's in the plans. And of course you need ownership that is committed to to the idea. there's always an entrance fee to even join Major League baseball so you have to make sure that you have someone who can afford and who can afford to do would and is in it for the long term but yeah you wouldn't you wouldn't just go to to Moines Iowa you're going to go to a place that has population growth. That could support a team. So how would you characterize characterized the sixties. Then because obviously you've got four teams kind of expanding in in his period of two years. That's the natural knee jerk reaction to come to the Continental League that you're you're you're talking about and but but it wasn't till the ending part of the decade which you know tumultuous at that where Major League baseball you know sort of ramped ramped up even the beginnings of another sort of random and picking. Frankly you know some very interesting cities but four of them all in one shot in nineteen sixty nine. Why Montreal for example and why say Seattle with its shaky and were not fully fleshed out? Stadium plan would you say he means six stadium. Yeah that's I K S They actually didn't have enough seats for the opening game at six stadium the Seattle pilots and they didn't have enough bathrooms either so it was. It was an interesting situation. I think to answer your question Montreal it was I mean now now. Toronto is looked at as basically the capital city of Canada. If you will I mean I know that Ottawa is but I mean when you look about business. Listen Finance but back in those days Montreal with the city and I think the the idea the luster of international play was very important and and you know what the Montreal Expos did quite well. It's just when ownership run into some financial issues and had to sell off their best players that the franchise got in trouble trouble You know Seattle makes sense You have the Kansas City royals Seattle and then nationally. Yes San Diego as well so again. You're you're moving towards to Canada and also to the West more so so okay. So each of these situations are are pretty interesting and unique right the pilots and Seattle right where you know Ma- Minor League Baseball had done quite well and the padres too for that matter but you know Seattle. It'll being a biggest sort of western metropolitan area outside of the two or three franchises in in California some natural geography there. But you know Montreal autry all seems like an outlier. I guess when you think about it and Kansas City right was itself a response to a team that had itself south been domiciled elsewhere Philadelphia and a guy named Charlie Finley moving. Oakland was it was. It was an immediate replacement for the departure of the as but but it's also curious too that the as were never truly warmly embraced by Kansas City for a number of different reasons right some of them self self inflicted and the the weird relationship with the New York Yankees and then Charlie Finley Supposedly being a White Knight. And then you know literally getting on his horse and taking a team away. They're almost like the Yankees. Farm system is crazy right. It was crazy but I guess my point is that these four franchises. Don't I am sure this is in hindsight. But against the tableau of the of the late nineteen sixties with all. The things other distractions going on in this country. I I'm not sure that I would necessarily pick those four places and in situations as the next best places to put franchises right in Seattle. We have yet but we both have have the the The power until just to look back and you know we. We weren't living we you know they're they're they're going by the seat of their pants trying to make the right kind of decisions and and those those times they felt that the ownership and the cities they were moving to the right places to go and the right situations for Major League Baseball. You know it's easy to look back on it now and say well the set or the other thing but again they didn't have that opportunity to look back in the you know and I'm not sure the freedom looking for They just didn't have the opportunity to look back on something that was going to happen. I guess I'm just. I'm just struggling away for what. What do you think the dynamics of some of those decisions? How much do you think it was the advent pro football radio rival League of the AFL you know pushing the NFL? Westward as well Well the NFL was way ahead of baseball. As I mentioned that the Los Angeles Rams and the San Francisco. I don't think they were the forty niners. Yes I think there were the seals or something going way back and again. You're right with the expansion of hockey You had the Los Angeles Kings. You had the Oakland Seals. I think they were too or they might have a different team but yeah other leagues were were going to the west coast quicker and more often than baseball was so I think some of it might be a knee-jerk jerk reaction but again you're looking at teams you're looking at populations you look at growing populations and then you're also looking at.

"Downloaded into your ear buds. That we appreciate your Given our little show listen. Of course. It's good seats still available. And it's the the The show that kind of tackles the the unimaginable at is what used to be in professional sports. Thank you again for being part of the The frivolity this week and we're going into baseball once again with a little survey shall we Around expansion sort of a topic that we've danced around and and and nuanced just a little bit in a number of our conversations certainly across all sports but but baseball in particular very very interesting Set of stories. And we'RE GONNA Kinda survey the landscape With our guest this week France Zim. Nick as we talk about a history. If you will of baseball's expansion kinda really starting around nineteen sixty one or so and kind of you know sort of meandering through the decades Afterwards awards and you heard sort of one of them. Nineteen sixty nine was a very interesting Expansion Year for Major League Baseball where there was not only those Kansas city royals oils. That joined the American league that year but they also joined in the Al by another team known as the Seattle pilots. Yes a previous this episode and obviously some future wants to come. The one year wonder that that was or were the Seattle pilots as well as to National League franchises that season the Montreal. Paul Expos As well as the San Diego padres and offer you You longtime listeners. You'll know that the late sixties was quite the expansionary time for lots of things it was the the Aba launching and kind of pushing the NBA along. It was the great expansion The late sixties of the the NHL NHL which had been tightly wound with six franchises for the longest time until this sort of explosions started in the nineteen sixty seven and beyond Onda seasons and Major League. Baseball was Was No shrinking violet when it came to this too they they recognize that greener pastures. Were to be had And and Clearly we'll talk with Fran whole sort of a series if you will of of expansion moves sixty one sixty two yet the meds and the the the Houston Colt forty five's and and you know the response to the Continental League. We've talked about that with our all PAL rescue heights on a previous episode that continental at the League. That sort of was threatened but never sort of came to be But in nineteen sixty nine those fourteen joined and you know I find it comical that little clip that you heard there from it. It's like a I guess it was a nineteen seventy sort of recap of the initial nineteen sixty nine season of the Kansas City. Royals you know. Here's a really good example right so we'd like to focus focus on teams and leagues no longer with us. Obviously the royals are still very much with us. As a matter of fact playing a very much in the same stadium pretty much that they've been playing most of their adult lives in Kansas City since the early seventies when they moved into Kaufman ord now wh- what was the outcome Royal Slash Kauffman Stadium and this and the the the the the notion that they were the best of the four expansion teams Yeah but kind of barely. Let's be honest. I mean the Kansas City royals in in their first season sixty-nine wins okay. But barely better than the The pilots that one sixty four times sixty four ninety eight to be the Exact yeah it was the three ninety five winning percentage in. Yeah they they had to move to Milwaukee the next season But you know. Let's be honest. The royals didn't sort of burn up the The American League And of course the expos and the San Diego Padres Did quite poorly as well. Both tying themselves if you will with a futile record of fifty two wins hundred and ten losses so yeah franchises that to expand usually in their first few seasons. Don't do so well. But that's a relative statement however it is important to know. Oh and you know you see again. Kansas say is great case in point you have to sort of understand some of the Teams that That preceded some of these expansion. Franchises is is Kansas City. A really good example. You remember some our previous conversations. The Kansas City as owned by whack-job owner by the name of Charlie Finley shrewd rude crazy like a Fox. Perhaps Obviously had moved the the Kansas City as to Oakland Two seasons prior nineteen. Well Oh actually nineteen sixty eight So sixty seven was the last year of the Kansas City as sixty eight was baseball less for Kansas City and and income these new expansion franchise Kansas City royals in nineteen sixty nine. So this is a game of musical chairs. It's a game of of Expansionary Canary Times in Pro sports generally in baseball's a specifically and The royals just one of a number of teams in situations and Expansionary moves that we get into this week with our guest France Zimny because we talk about expansion over the years in what is now major league baseball. Aw and You know a little bit of an arc of history and Some some topics that we've discussed in the past Put in context as well as a few teams that we can.

"Happened. It actually goes way back earlier in the decade right to the world's fair. And maybe that's a good place to kind of lay a little groundwork for our audience about sort of you know, what of Seattle in. It's it's history. It's a, you know, it's fledgling this. I guess as a as desirable place not only to live, but it's own desire to perhaps, I guess my words fancy itself. More major league so to speak, and and maybe you can kind of give a little a starting point is to sort of how this narrative gets going right in the book go, in fact, even before the the the world's fair I go back to nineteen sixty when there was actually a bond issue vote in nineteen sixty four stadium. Not that many people were interested in it. I divide the city up into into three major players and the pilot story. Anyway, there's the the boosters. There's the civic leaders, and there's the politicians and truthfully only the boosters were interested in a stadium for major league baseball team. And maybe for the the university of Washington, husky football team in nineteen sixty the campaign was modest there are few bumper stickers. They're only three or four people who who really beat the drum for the the bond issue. And when the people voted they voted against it. It only got a forty eight percent vote and in the state of Washington sixty percent for for a bond issue to be to be passed. So it fell well short of any possibility. And then the world's fair is where the excitement began to pick up. I think Seattle began to realize that it was a big city when I I came to nineteen sixty eight I came from southern California, the Los Angeles area and. Overwhelming sense was here is a large city, but doesn't know it's a large city. And I think there were plenty of people in in the Puget Sound region who kinda wanted to keep it that way. But when the when the world's fair ended up being a real success, not only the boosters, but some other people began to get vision for what can we do next and one of those things that that might might come from that they thought was a baseball team and expansion team or maybe lure another team to to Seattle. And so they got busy on it in nineteen sixty four engaged Paul and William Daley, the Cleveland Indians came to Seattle kind of testing it out to see if the if the Indians might move to Seattle probably it was a ploy to leverage some favorable stadium. Improve. It's in in Cleveland, but they looked around. They they found out. There was nothing but a minor league stadium, and they went back home and negotiated with the city of Cleveland and got pretty much what they wanted. But that that really piqued the interest. I think a lot of baseball baseball fans in Seattle. But it wasn't until nineteen sixty six and the possibility of the National Football League bringing a team to Seattle that that they began working again on on bond issue and Vallon look like it was pretty much going to be accepted seem like everybody hit endorsed the ball Titians endorse that bankers endorsed the newspapers endorsed, it even the religious community in the the bond issue with kind of an height or to Billy Graham crusade as soon as the stadium opened up, but it seemed to. To run into some some rough going the fellow who was the the leader of the campaign did kind of debate with with people who were not so much for it. And they'll he had been speaking tick ulitmately throughout the city for the bond issue. He just seemed to fall down in this this not televised. But on that was on the radio this debate. And he couldn't he couldn't really explain very, well why private entity did not build a stadium. Whether or not the stadium would be built if there was no team coming or the stadium might be might be placed in the city. And it it seemed like the momentum for provable for that bond issue just turned around several weeks before the the bond election..

"Seven ten on your AM dial. And of course, if you if you dial that up now, you're hear nothing but Korean language programming, but back then in sixty nine it was the flagship, gene, Autry owned fifty thousand watt, and then some flame thrower of angels baseball all across the Southland. And I'm sure an extensive affiliate lineup of stations. But they were calling that first game. It was obviously the the season opener for the angels. But the franchise. Opener for the Seattle pilots. And that is the topic of our conversation today. The one year wonder the nineteen sixty nine season. The only season of the Seattle pilots of the American Lee, our guest this week is Bill Mullins. He is the author of perhaps the the most wide ranging and expansive investigation of the story of the Seattle pilots called becoming big league, Seattle, the pilots and stadium politics came out a couple of years ago and university of Washington press, and it's a it's a great survey. Not only it does talk about the team in and what transpired on the field a bit. But it also has a much longer arc as the stories. We're going to unwind in our conversation. A few seconds. Here goes back to literally the beginnings of the nineteen sixties things like the world's fair of sixty two and sort of the the rumblings around building a stadium and trying. To attract a professional sports team to Seattle which during the sixties really was the third I think most populous metropolitan area on the west coast, and yet was effectively bereft of of anything professional sports at that time, and we're gonna get into sort of the reasons why reasons why sports franchises of a major league variety were part of the Seattle zeitgeist, or at least in certain circles of Seattle in terms of its becoming quarter, quote, major league the fits and starts of such. And frankly, the, you know, the the ground work that kinda helped lead to major league baseball awarding a franchise, and we're going to the timing of that which is pretty interesting the team that became a Seattle pilots in nineteen sixty nine. And let's put it this way. It wasn't a raging success. Okay. The team itself wasn't all that bad. I think a lot of people who were there and sixty nine in Seattle have very fond memories of of the team. We're going to sort of end our show with a little bit of even theme song, which you wanna stick around for because. Yeah, I think the it was a very interesting time for Seattle and sports fans, but let's put it this way. There were a bunch of elements there that sort of conspired against the team some of which of its own doing actually a lot of it of its own doing sub which actually was not of its own doing stadium politics for sure and a whole host of other sort of things that that made the pilots adventure in nineteen sixty nine one four the record books, and that's what we're gonna be talking about here today this week with our guest Bill Mullins coming up in a couple of seconds.
