I mentioned a couple from a listener's tip. The Seattle police last week rescinded Invitations to the cops to a in event hosted by Franklin Graham Night before last, it was an appreciation. Thank you dinner all expenses paid by Franklin Graham's organization, the Billy Graham Ministries. And Lorena Gonzalez, the cop hating Seattle City Councilwoman. She she went crazy.

But we've got the story up on my Northwest stuck calm because the Seattle police on their Facebook page today. They sent warm wishes for the Muslim feast holiday of today, I'd outfitter And when I ask is Do you have any idea with the Muslim religions attitude towards homosexuality is They're afraid of offending the LGBTQ community by celebrating a Muslim holiday on their Facebook page, but They say that the gay community will be offended if they send out invitations to a dinner hosted by a Christian organization.

Fresh update on "mariners" discussed on Sports Gambling Radio - By BangTheBook
"Now they're crossing three time zones going out to play seattle. I legitimate road trip. I know that for west since twenty nineteen ten curious to see what happens with them a little bit in this one and that is my pick for tonight is the under in the indians and mariners. Game straight has put together my notes this morning. I'm not sure if that's still the case. Probably a seven and a half south there now. Please second flexing. Neither pitcher walks is a lot of ground balls here. Mariners have a fly ball. Heavy offense of style kind of disagree with the move on the mariners to be totally honest with you. But i think the under is probably the safer look in that game. A lot of unfamiliarity between the indians and the mariners are in this match up where the mariners have never seen zach. Police and the indians have not seen chris flexing either so with that. We go to a weekend preview here. And we take a look at that indians. And mariner series please second flex in erin. Savelli and logan gilbert as the mariners. Finally calling some guys up now. Lennox come up now. And i apologize by butcher. His name there gilbert's up. You've got to think. The julio rodriguez will be up here at some point in time to so nice to see the mariners kind of checking a little bit of life into that ball club. So logan gilbert gets the start on. Friday trista mackenzie injustice sheffield cupper. Couple former indians farmhands getting together on saturday and then shane bieber listed for sunday against to be determined. But as i said. I'm curious to see what happens with the indians here first. Non al central or cincinnati road trip of the season long way to go legit time change. I can tell you from having traveled quite a bit over the last four weeks jet lag time changes are very real things so we'll see how the indians perform their at t mobile park but something else concerning really about both of these teams it. Very high percentage of their runs have been scored via the homerun. T mobile park. Does have a humidor now. But it hasn't really had a substantial impact on offense to this point so a couple of teams that live and die with the home run. We see some lower scoring games here. Especially i think tonight and it. Also tomorrow i'll win. The mariners get errands savelli. Who's also inducing a lot of ground balls. So far this season mets and the raised. David peterson tyler. Glass now friday joy lucchessi. Gene mcclanahan on saturday. Marcus stroman and ryan yarborough on sunday could see louis patino open up for yarborough that will be the case but buying a lot of yarbrough stock as you know. I like him quite a bit also like stroman so sunday. I won't be doing the article but probably going to be under. Look for me in that one. I will say though. The mets are starting to put it together. A little bit here. They'll have designated hitter in this series. They can put another bat in the lineup Tough to fade the mets. Here i think in this series even though they're facing some pretty legit pitching from the rays of glass now mcclanahan and the yarbrough in patino in all likelihood so should be a good series there to be sure lastly here for today's show the cardinals and the padres. Johan oviedo and joe musgrove on friday and wainwright chris paddack on saturday kwang. Hyun kim and ryan weather's on sunday one trip for the cardinals here too and also that sunday game is sunday baseball. So we'll see what happens there with that. Start for them but interesting series because i think the padres are positive progression team the cardinals or a negative aggression team probably gonna look to play on the padres here for this weekend. Set at petco park. So as i said i realized things sounding different. Hopefully the wi fi here held up. Hopefully everything comes across clear on. Today's show monday show will be the same way. Maybe i could find some sort of better way to do this by. But you want to make sure i got a show out here for thursday so just bear with me here with that. Things will get back to normal for the most part on next week over at. Ats dot io but hopefully enjoyed the show. Hopefully got some good nuggets of information out of it off. Always great to chat with you guys and again if you want to get on the list for the better spock's notes skating tripods at gmail.com is the way to get on that list again on monday with another edition of the box for me. Thank you so much forcing everybody and remember that you will never strike out when you're in the batter's box..

So you know, I I don't know how much they can accelerate through this year and by the end point to be where they hope to be. It's you've got to be realistic and realized how much was lost last year.

So, Yeah, I think that at the very least, I think this team should finish very strongly. And I think people should have a good feeling about it.

Born red sox fan. If you don't play for the red sox you don't play major league baseball. It's like they're all your yeah. There's there's fifty two guys in major league baseball. Twenty six on the red sox twenty-six that he kind of knows on the yankees and then everyone else in the minor leagues even as jane has gotten the mariner natto matter okay. It doesn't matter. I was talking about it with my dad. Had to drive to work this morning. And so i was asking him like how talking jack kelanic today. And he's like who's cheese. No nothing zero zip zilch.

Mookie betts will come up like the dodgers are on tv or something and he'll be sitting there. It's like the dodgers giants or something. And he'll go. Mookie betts like our mookie betts. He boston he didn't die. He didn't fall off the face of the earth. It's not like columbus and what they thought was going to happen like you know he's fine. It's just he's in another city same guy with the same name. He just doesn't play for your team anymore. But my dad's taylor trammell the other day and writers who by my tail mel young like. He's probably gonna make team. Yeah look at a swing. He was just completely blown away by taylor dramatic few minutes later. I think he's singled in a couple of runs at hormone later in that game. Just like you can kind of see it with him. You don't have to be a baseball expert. Not that my dad's in his in his swing most resemble suck. I mean my dad. These days mostly watching softball players in their sixties. And so i don't know lebron's lord herbert manley off. There's like a softball you know. How about to your. I have all the different guys and swings. you've seen through the years as mariner. I gotta see lost swing. It's a pretty traditional lefty swing. It doesn't have all the golfing. Beauty of griffey's. It's not that but it's a it's a pretty nice even smooth but not too. Long lefty swing. There's a lot to like. I'll see. If i can come up with a comp i dunno one jumps out howdy howdy. He's got three. Is vin cat. Who is it howdy. I need to study at some more. I it's unique. I like it. It's smooth but yeah. I don't know if i can give you calm. Is it a. Is it a left handed. Haniger as you can't compare rates they watch it pal. It's not haniger because haniger looks like he's got his whole foot rolls over. I mean that's an in its own. Category of china generate torque. So yeah these tremendous athlete to right. I mean he sees this. Is that we in this last week or two weeks ago. If this is the most athletic team that we will have seen with the mariners since we've watched him for the last dozen years a couple years we've seen you know that's what they said. They wanted they want to be hard to play against. They looked at the astros and how difficult they were in and tried to model some of this after them. So yeah tremendous run around a little bit. You got a bunch of guys on this team who will take off when given the opportunity at first base and may help them more eventually if they do end up with this larger basis or limiting the pickoff move some of the ideas that are right now minor league baseball and may find their way to the top of. Kyle's right. The story that that of course begs. Conversation is jared cowen. Who will start in the minors. I will just say flat out. I like this. I am glad kelanic is starting in the minors and i am quite frankly. Brooke sicker people pretending they're upset about it for any reason other than that. They're patient and wanna see him. I'm so upset for what is it because you are impatient. Because i just want him. I want the whole show. I want to the humble pie that he's going to eat. I want the braggadocious. I want the edge. I just i think. I speak for a lot of fans. I just wanna see a great. We have been starved of young superstar. Talent of this nature since rod been twenty years since we've had prospect. Don't give me brandon moro. Don't give me mike zeno give you both of those guys. They were absolutely child. Labor of this player. They were not regarded as one of the three best. They were not the next. You know fernando tatis. They were not the next a rod in griffey. That is the camp in the air that this guy in his rare talent puts him in. I want to. I'd swansea for better for worse for everything else. I just as a mariners fan like. Let's go okay. So it's going to cost us a few million bucks down the road if he's really gonna cost you a year down there. It could cost you a year down the road which by the way is a huge deal and the fact to kevin said it publicly and all of the sudden people pretended to get upset about service. Time does not does not mean that. You shouldn't continue to manipulate service time. It's what's called doing business the right way and making sure you are exempt doing exactly what marriage fans want the team to do focus on winning for as long as possible giving yourself as good a chance as you possibly can jared kelanic. Guess is wants to go to free agency as soon as possible regardless of how much he likes it here and how much success he has if you give him whatever five years on a super two. He'll be a free agent after five years. That's what he wants not going to sign a deal. You know of that approach great. You can love that about him. Don't you want six years. Instead of five with them. Wants an extra couple weeks. He gets to be excited about braggadocio. After twenty one years. I worried about six years from now. I'm wondering about your in now. I can wait another forty another story. More colin cowherd do you remember colin cowherd orpheus. And.

Z. a. he kind of Just kind of inferred that they will get in trouble with the law and stuff like that which is beyond stupid again. You're there are plenty of white players again trouble with the law. I mean this is an organization that has managed to pick up several players that have had past run ins with the line seemed overlooked. I found out you know you know the major league players union is gonna find offensive. Is that he. He started talking about manipulating their prospects. Service time he mentions the word service time and that has been a bit grievance about how the owners Try and keep these guys making as few dollars as possible for as long as possible with some of their top talent. You look at george springer with astros these guys that end up being free agents at thirty two when they probably should have been free agents at twenty nine because the the organization keeps them in the minor leagues. He kind of mentioned that that they're not gonna move some of these guys up right away and he mentioned the word service time and this is a year with. Mlb is going in and the players. You associated are going into a collective bargaining agreement. They should cvs up after the season. I i can't think of any reason there won't be a work stoppage. Given what we've seen from these two entities over the last. I don't know for three or four years the bickering so he's added that i mean if you're already had two agents call me or text me right away so we need to talk about these things matter said because he's talking directly about their clients in the contract classes and i mean how we talked about free agents and how they're going to manipulate and how these guys are overpaid. I just think if you're mariners fans they don't wanna hear about how you do these things and how cheap you're being rude disturbing made at swan you to win. This organization hasn't been in the playoffs since two thousand north american professional team as a longer playoff drought right now currently than the seattle mariners and a's logging in this year or next year either ryan. Thanks for being with us. Appreciate you casting some light on this story. If you want to know some more you could go to the seattle times. You will find more information. It's interesting it's well reported and you've got a series of pieces. I imagine coming out on this because this has a lot of tentacles business rarely the dirty laundry rarely gets this aired out this cleanly where everyone can see it. And it's like. I imagine this is going to be content for you for a while. Yeah i mean. I you know a lot of situations like this more and more reports of of people. How he's acted to other people are going to come out. I mean i had somebody emailed me a zoom call. He did with a sports journalism class. Where several of the women were offended by things he said. I haven't got view yet. I just got it today. So i think the more we the the longer the stays out there in the longer remains employed. I think more people are going to come forward with some of the the issues of this guy has had or some of the things he said and kind of move on from there. I mean i'm. The mariners are releasing a statement today at some point. I don't think you'll be fired. I could be wrong but right now. They hadn't fired him now. They're not going to and it'll be pretty interesting to see the reaction. Because i think it'll be very negative towards an organization. This has no benefit of the doubt in the area. And all right ryan. Let's talk tomorrow again about your reporting whatever it is that becomes fresher later in the week. Let's talk again about this. I don't want this story to just disappear. Want people to continue to see how many tentacles it has because people need to understand that this is the dirty dirty part of the business right here and how some systemic shit ends up happening because this guy doesn't deserve to go running right back into the shadows where he can count his money because he's doing some stuff here that has been at the top of baseball for too long and it needs to stop. Because they're they really are using these bodies from all over the country that they're squeezing with financial manipulations and everything else so this guy can stay atop the organization as a commodities broker. You're with me dan. Thank you. Stu gods you can get out of here ryan. I appreciate it Stugotz thanks for nothing. Bring me somebody else here. Could talk about this in a way that intelligent plate..

"Done but it's i don't know how how stunned you can be just given what you were saying about Knowing this guy a little bit but you haven't spoken a greater truth outside of the casino one when you say that the thing that jarring about seeing that youtube speech is how very not human. These people are who are his employees. They are commodities. You mentioned widgets that this you can't have that. Be the thing in sports atop your organization just because it makes you money. After the summer we just went through. But you might be able to get away with it because asian americans can be more can be spent smeared more easily in this country at this point. Then even hispanics and blacks. That you're just i don't know how this guy gets toppled but this can't be in two thousand and twenty one. It just can't be no i. It'd be unbelievably stupid. For the mariners to continue this way. And i don't know how it works do they. Is it gonna be blowback from. Fan continued push on social media. Or is it a major sponsors like alaska airlines Emerald queen casino which is one of the major casinos if they start pulling out sponsorship dollars is that force it honestly. I tweeted this last night when it comes to things like this. The manners never make the practical or logical decision at the practical or logical time. They just don't and it's indicative of this organization and how they run things It's it's why they are have been so bad as an organization and if you're a fan earlier this year they were talking about not spending money on this team after having one of the lowest payrolls and and and one of the richest ownership groups. But they're doing this rebuild. Needed wanna spend this year because they were trying to manipulate the free agent market and they. You've heard owners talk about being in debt and the fear of a taking on debt. And i'm thinking to myself. Ninety percent of this country lives in a constant state of debt. At all times they do and they operated on and yet even in that state of debt. They're still willing to pay overprice tickets overpriced beers over parking to see a product that isn't even commensurate with 'em mobile standards. And they do that because they care about this stuff. Probably more than the ownership cares about making money ryan. I have the guy that could topple him each row. Because i i'm serious. If he led the way with the former players speaking about how poorly this organization is run he would never he would never have a person is president is if each row can get behind this or get in front of this and get a lot of people behind him. I think we can get ryan. He would never he would. Never i wa. I don't know why you're rushing in to try and get someone fired. Actually i do know that's at is what you always do. Yes you love the. Please don't join my arm on this particular conversation. It's a good idea though. It is but he would. Never this is actually. This is an interesting cultural sort of stereotype but each row would never bring that indignity. When what kind of controversy is each row ever gonna have. He doesn't do that stuff publicly. no he really doesn't and he's You know it. it's. It's one thing like i'd never been to japan and the mariners went to japan last year and and seeing that culture up close and then understanding how my my grandparents operated. I really understood. And i don't know that he would do that. But you're right. He has the power to to make a change because the the manners right now. They don't have superstar power within the organization. You know you don't have a clayton kershaw This has to be different. You know and and they so you know their their best player is named marlins allah's He's just a guy that is you know just starting to sort himself. They have a lot of young players. Kyle seager their best player in only all star. Kevin maller called overpaid. And i wanna say you helped to prove the contract and you call them overpaid on the on. The on the podcast. Well so i. I don't see each row doing it. He does have the power he does have. He's he's actually a coach. He's here in arizona right now with the team getting ready for spring training. He's a coach. He's within the organization. A sashi kumar. The guy you complaint with the matter complain about as a coach here i get. I guess maybe if the players kind of walked out on this or did something or took a stand. But i don't know that they have the players that they have the cash aid to do that all the other than each. I just don't know because felix hernandez anonymous organization anymore and and all the stars i mean griffey is kind of distanced himself a little bit at times from this organization in in this ownership group though. He's still technically a member of the front office. Is this the responsibility like look. i understand. Giambi teams respond. But let's backtrack here for a second right because not unlike the capture nick situation like whose responsibility is this. Is it the asians responsibility to call for a guy to be fired because he was anti-asian in a way that's not acceptable or do you need some more. So why does it have to be the athlete. Like who else. If i were to ask you ryan if someone were to lead a cause on this needs to get more attention needs to be a national story. What this guy said is not okay the way he treats players. I understand it's nuanced and complicated. Because he's giving a breakfast speech in which he's giving an hour look into. Oh all cold man. This is just another hedge fund guy who doesn't have to be appropriate. Who can drink whatever he wants and shoot his mouth off and always keep a job because they'll keep labor cheap labor is minority and even if he's slurring that labor when he's talking to breakfast clubs and he's a little too loose with his language like it's not ok who can come out and be an advocate that smokes out this guy so that he has on top of him a weight and a pressure. The tells america. This isn't all right that this guy is sitting here talking about translators. Basically servants. I feel like ryan. Maybe it's evolved. Since since i've known it but i remember what those guys did they come over here and they uproot their entire life and they become this all purpose valet in life coach for these guys to complain about seventy five thousand dollars with somebody. Who's helping you through a cultural shift. That swallowed decky Who was it was irabu. The who was the guy known as the fat. Tony swallowed like we. We practically killed that guy because of how hard that transition is to complain about seventy five grand to help those guys transition a new life when that's what you get out of those arms like we're not they're not that disposable this guy is vastly more disposable than the people. He's not treated humanely here. Oh i agree completely. I don't know who should take the step forward i would. I would think people within the organization. He is not well liked by his employees. Maybe employees take step forward the players as well. I think it has to be a collective. I don't know the one person and the danettes. It's stupid that we even have to sit there and say who has to take a step board. John stanton the chairman of the mariners. The owner who has been a longtime businessman. Who's who's friends with the.

"Party is slaying Slade corrobos, Tim that is has not stopped dropping dick since Japan. I can't really this guy's been a pain in my ass since two thirty in the morning in the middle of fuck and March he's his lugging seven seventy three. And I'm sitting here going. All right. Like, I I'm not taking shoot away from from from back at all not taking anything away from him. But I'm thinking to myself is this what we're fucking dealing with right now is about to happen or is Malik Smith and like Tim Beckham just about two, and I'm even thinking about my boy, Ryan Healy. Yeah. Are all these dudes just about emerge like what I'm scared of Jared what I'm scared of. And I'll be very Frank. I'm scared of what what happened to the as last year happening to the Mariners this year, like they're all just going to be like, all right? You guys trying to get better together. Let's do and you just get like five dudes who were bubble guys. Maybe maybe a few of them that like we're going to be role players that are now like, you know, what? Now on this kind of like everyday player train. Now. Fuck it. Who would be really good? How this looks? Yeah. I mean, I can appreciate you at least extending that all of branch to the Mariners and their fans. They don't have the talent that as last year. But you're you're right. But but see I don't know that everybody assesses that situation the same. If the age don't have that type of season. Like, I I think it's they made it really easy like for people to say, well, they're good. They've got good players on that team. As did the as made it easy for. I think for folks who say that you add minutely we're watching the as a little more closely than than you have in years past. So I got you got a good feel for that. But you're right. They have locking studs, man. They do I just think that the Mariners they could they could be just a click away from like, you said Tim Beckham going, so he doesn't have a fucking nine year window where he's great maybe three year window where he. Just outstanding for who knows. Maybe that's now. And if it is I like, you know for two fucking not be please. So right now as as like the Seattle Mariners are in a situation where they're looking great. But their teams in that division that are are better than them that haven't played up to their standards just yet that being the as and the Astros but the Astros. They've they've quote unquote turned a corner this hold on turn turn the corner. They they turned a corner because they were playing poorly. Right. But then they swept the Yankees in in Houston. So after that shadow to the Astros, by the way that it's not easy to turn corners in baseball. It's you know, sometimes you get pulled him one direction. There's nothing you can do. It's like when the Titanic sank and in Jack was just getting yet down to the bottom of the ocean. By that current it just it happens. It just happens sometimes and during a baseball season so credit to the Astros for swimming to the top of the surface there and that series against New York in about four games writer, three games this three games. Yep. Three games. Very. Like a small quarter. Yeah. He has a quick corner to turn around the Astros that ever swept the Yankees ever. Yes. What the fuck really? That's you got to think about how much time they spent in the NL. Yeah. Don't think too much about that. Because then it makes my stat less impressive. Noticed that was not enough. It's true.

There's two topics that I want to hit on today. The first one let's give some love to the Seattle. Mariners while dropping lots of de everywhere. The Pacific northwest is on fire corrobos on fire my Twitter feed getting blown up booking mariner fans. It's what they're twelve and two. And I think they've homered in all fourteen games about bucking Mitch Haniger. My God who we wanted to get on the spikes up tour didn't work out. But not no forever. Nope. Out right now just to couldn't right now. Yeah. Seattle Mariners have the best run differential in major league baseball through through fourteen games. There are plus forty one. They've won nine of their last ten five straight coming into Thursday. I don't like and they're seven and water on the road. There's seven one on the road. Are we buying this small sample from from the the early going from the Seattle? Mariners. I can't. Well, I just remember what was it? It was either last year the year before our member talking about the Seattle manners. 'cause they they held a playoff spot somewhat decently into the season. And what was the canosa's bench in last year? Yes. Okay. So then it was last year because we were talking about canot like where are they going? What are they gonna do with them when he comes back, and because he is not eligible for the postseason if the mayor's make it we're talking postseason for that. Mariners team last year. Do you get the sense that, you know, without Edwin d as we know that they're not a better team in that regard necessarily. But what about just what about this? Mariners team just feels different to you versus the Seattle Mariners of a year ago. 'cause there is a completely different feel. I feel like I mean. There's a a longer line of. I think that's ultimately what you take away from this team. Now is I mean because there were guys who came up last year during the season. Like, I'm trying to think what Vogel box is a name that I think comes to mind. Yeah. Who the fuck was this, dude? He came out of nowhere, and he was fucking throwing head a little bit. And I just I think I just just shit like that. You're like you have an idea of who these guys are now. Why? And I guess I'm speaking more from a guy who watches the AL west, you know, very closely. It's not a lineup that you're like. Oh, wow. Oh, you guys. I mean, come on tip fucking is. This is the Tim Beckham coming out party is slaying Slade corrobos, Tim that is has not stopped dropping dick since Japan.

"Prospects all using one season ticket package and that's our marketing team took that information in greeted at the also created one that was a little bit more business focused and so we've been testing that and I think that's when we look at kind of some of the changes over time in general with marketing and sales in the relationships over time that has evolved as well you know I think I'm curious to hear also what you are able to learn share with some of your counterparts in other teams. I can't imagine that Microsoft and apple and Google are sharing marketing and sales ideas very often but in your competitors really are competitive. You're sort of the other teams and other markets. You don't necessarily compete with for these ticket sales. How much sharing is there between yourself and your counterparts at some of the other teams Major League Baseball on perhaps teams your counterparts in other sports while you're right? We don't compete. We compete on the field but we don't necessarily compete in the market so I would say across M._l._b.. There's quite a bit of sharing both on the marketing <hes> side but also the sale hillside and we meet regularly we have regular calls sharing best practices. Each market is unique so that can be challenging but we are often talking to each other about how really two to raise the profile of the industry in general and then certainly outside of the industry there are outside of M._l._b.. There are other leagues that we consult with on a regular basis. I am not above ever of picking up the phone and calling someone that I saw a great idea. How did you do it? How did it work and I think that that's something that we encourage? I mean we encourage our our team to do that. Across the board in this market as well as outside market okay awesome just couple more minutes here with Francis Trace when the senior vice president of sales at the Seattle Mariners and I'm curious as you as you build your sales team in as you look to hire new sales reps and then a lot of people probably think it'd be a lot of fun to work for a professional sports organization nation but at the end of the day it is still it is a job is a sales job. You have to hit your number. <hes> they're just like anywhere else what are some of the attributes of good sales reps and good new hires you look for are they different for ticket sales versus corporate sales in you know what kind of experience Rodriguez are you looking for some of your ideal neck sales. That's a really good question. I mean I think are fundamentally. People need to have just a general first of all a desire to work ethic you. You you'd said it best sale. I've always wanted to work in sports or I roy's wanted to work for. The mariners is key to that is work. Now is the key to that phrase so I think there's just an overarching fundamental caring about in doing a good job. That is a fundamental. <hes> you know trait that we're looking for. Is that in your pass that something that you've been striving for is excellence in some area and overarching for me I think in order to the good at sales is really a general curiosity in interest you know there are a lot of people that can talk to prospects than <hes> consumers but really if you are curious. You're going to make the most of that conversation. You're going to lead that conversation into the next level so that to me is a trait that is perhaps a little under <hes> valued in general and certainly need to be organized. You need to have perseverance. Perseverence would be helpful to have some strategic thinking that those are some things we can help you with <hes> in general. I really believe that just a good solid person who wants to do the best job we can. We can help. We can teach you how to sell if you are a good person who has the desire to to be the best. That's great well last question as we wrap up here in just a couple more minutes. You've been with the Organization for over twenty years. It's it's it's impressive to me. How many senior leaders with the mariners have similar tenure Kevin Martinez with the organization? Almost as long as you have tim heavily who was back back in the day he was my boss when I was when I was an intern with the P._R.. Department with the Mariners when I was in school and still bill is the vice president of communications what are some of the advantages of having sort of course sales marketing leadership team that has such longevity in the organization but what are also some of the pitfalls that might come along with that in terms of sort of having some of the same four walls in the same perspective for such a long period of time that you have to watch yeah. I mean you've said it best way. I can't say enough about the organization why we've been here. We've all been here for so long. Is that while it's the same baseball played every a year. It's always something different. I mean it's very exciting industry to work in. It's constantly changing their new opportunities in in challenges each year so I think that that speaks to why I'm here why Kevin's Year Tim's here we also are very fortunate to have a extremely stable ownership group and a very supportive ownership group that that wants to be successful here in Seattle so so we're fortunate to have that and so with not not having the changes day to day that some other organizations have you know any kind of changing leadership can be challenging for an organization can be invigorating or it can be challenging. <hes> we do try to challenge ourselves. I think that's just inherent in our organization that it's not just time to make the donuts every day. We're we are always looking at. How can we do this better? How can we do this differently and it all comes back to our main? Focus is on our fan. You know we know that we have a baseball side that is focused on trying to have our baseball team win on the field but in the end what the things that we can control are the fan experience and how you feel when you're you're in contact with someone from our organization so I I would say we do a fairly good job internally of challenging ourselves in trying to get outside of just this is how we always do it. Love it will we are unfortunately at a time Wanna think again. I guess Francis Tradesman our senior vice president of sales for the Seattle Mariners like I said a lot of people listening to this <hes> it's the end of February beginning March depending on when you're getting this episode it may still be cold but baseball is right around the corner in the exciting new season the best time of year for every team. Every team is tied for first place and you never know what's going to happen on the on the field so thank you Francis for joining us. Thanks everyone for listening to another episode. We'll see you next time on sales pipeline radio. The way we do business is advancing faster than ever before yet amongst disruptions. There's one pillar that stay standing through it.

"By there's a lot of interesting moving parts. It is a classic classic race trade and a classic mariner straight. I like that. We just spent fifteen minutes talking about Mike Zunino from Alex Smith, just just let us wait until James Paxton gets traded, right? Which could be any second now Lee chant axed, right after we finished recording takes about James Paxton, if he gets traded, and depending on what he gets traded for here's one of my takes them going to preview it James Paxton now goes, Lance Lynn, James hawks like most predict probably my favorite pitcher in baseball right now. So how dare you get out my favorite picture? The difference is Lance Lynn has you know, a track record of extended major league success the level of the innings eater versus the guy. Who's actually it is like these are the extremes. Yeah. Well, it feels strange to be talking about the Mariners on a purely Xs and os level to retouching your bellwether makers are racist or not. But it was awkward. I wanted to use the Daniel Mangan retina puppies from the storm drain story that came out this morning, a segue. But I don't know if that would have made it more or less awkward. No. I don't know. Well, what I was going to say is that there was some buzz before this trade was made about. About how the manners might consider just tearing down and going full rebuild. And I do think they're one of the more interesting teams, not just because they're always one of the more active teams over the offseason. But because they are in this position where you wonder whether at some point they are just going to say, okay, we gave it a shot and will commit to several more seasons of not making the playoffs while we actually rebuild this thing. And I don't know whether this trade tells us anything one way or another about whether that's their thinking, I know that there were subsequent reports. After the reports that said, they might do that that said, they probably won't do that seems like it's probably still influx. In maybe depends on what sort of offers, they get but tax can go, and that doesn't necessarily commit them, I suppose to a long-term rebuild now. Because pats not going to be a part of the next good. Mariners team. He's too old. Here's the guy. He's not too old Shohei Ohtani the American League rookie of the year. That was a good segue Verkey of your.

I have no major complaints. Of course, you can go down the ballot and find fault with individual ballots. But on the whole, I think the writers got it. Right. And it looked for a while like the AKU.

I don't want to impugn Dr marred by comparing her day angel Hernandez, but he filed the grievance saying that he was passed over for assignments or promotions based on based on his race. And everybody jokes about angel Hernandez being a bad unpire. But it's also, you know, it's not implausible that his complaints about racial discrimination.

This because you have people with their tribal affiliations to a team that just kind of instinctively react and say, oh, well, she was fired, and she's bitter, and she's just making up these stories, and we just can't know whether that's true or untrue at has to be investigated. And we'll be and hopefully, we will find out the truth, and we'll see whether these claims can be corroborated because some of the claims they're pretty specific to hear, you know, we're talking about specific conversations we're talking about the specific trainers. She saying we're dismissed because of racism, I mean, there are things here that I don't know whether they're easily verified or refuted. But we are. We know what we're talking about here. It's not just some nebulous claims, which of course, could be true. But here we have very definite claims. And the Mariners response has been am I wrong in thinking it's a little more strident than denials or where? We're looking at this statements have been on both sides. Really? I mean the way that out being like, this her naming names, and and citing specific instances is. Yeah. Like, I mean, it it varies shows you. Yeah. I don't know. That's unusual. But it shows you like this is serious. This is not just an embittered employee on the way out or you know, on the way out the door. But the Mariners savant back. It's not just we're looking into it. It's cheese making this office. Centrally it's very the whole thing. I don't feel like I have a a great handle on it. Because it's it's just not how these things usually play. And I mean, if you look at maybe this is getting too in the details, but a lot of the comments she says were made specifically about Dominican players. A lot of the Mariners important players are from the Dominican Republic Nelson Cruz who is a free agent now. But he's from the Dominican Republic she and Sagrada Robinson canal like these are important players in the organization who would presumably be affected if these views are seen to happen throughout this organization and would probably want to see this investigated to not to to speak for them. But this is. The kind of thing that has a lot of different effects and a lot of different places. You know, if you kind of parse the Mariners statement, it's hard exactly to tell you know. Of course, they're vehemently denying many of her claims, but they are also refuting the claim that they fired a trainer, but they say, you know, we haven't terminated a trainer this off season, which is very specific. She didn't necessarily say that it was this off season and terminated can mean many things right in baseball. It's kind of a a seasonable gig often where you kind of worked from one year to the next, and this is about the time that people get new jobs or lose their jobs, and you can have a contract not renewed. So maybe they just mean. Well, we didn't fire them. We just let their contract expire. I don't know. It's hard to say we have to wait for some fact-finding to happen here at set sort of where I'm at I want to want to know more. And I imagine we will find out more before too long with the. You know, a lawsuit does get filed and majorly baseball's investigation, and if it's good that MLB, obviously MLB is going to investigate this..

"The Mariners for MLB dot com. And Greg Mariners whenever happens. These last couple of months of the season is gonna be fascinating. It's going to be a major storyline just because they are trying to end that longest playoff drought in North American professional sports. You know, at one time it seemed like they're running away with at least a wildcard spot. They fell back the as caught them, and it was interesting to see how both those clubs approach the trade deadline. From the Mariners perspective, they acquired Cameron Mabon from the Marlins. And then they beefed up their bullpen. Zach, Duke Adam, Warren and Sam to Eva Lula. Good old Sami t- so what did you think about their trade deadline approach? I know a lot of people were expecting them maybe at a starting pitcher, but it would seems like in this particular market, you know, they kinda you dance with the what's there. Basically, they beefed up their bullpen instead. Maybe learn us to. On that. You know, the remarks Chinky earlier I got onto to Vallejo. It's always a challenge in the writing business as you guys know. They went, I guess people been clamoring for them to add to that rotation since the since last winter really end to put on like our guys like Marco Gonzalez turned out to be a huge, give them monkey mainly less than it might be last less always come in solid in James Paxton or. Been the hope for when the scene so that the struggle with Felix keeping him healthy in cal-, getting him back to any semblance of Felix really big question there. So they got, got, you know, locations, Ben good. They feel like. Far at another start with those guys are expensive in the with the resources they have and really probably the lack of prospects to compete for some of the relief stars didn't figure the is that could get really gonna help that much got a reservoir near us close to coming off the of the deal could Essen depth to that those rotation. So they gotta win heavy on the bullpen, brought in three guys in on that. I guess it's kind of trendies Bill that will shorten the games and see if you've made that works. So so far they've been, it's been a pretty good formula their stars enough to get him in this position where if they can keep those guys healthy enough down the stretch at intimate homerun. So guy cameramen really a veteran centerfield.
