Fresh update on "mets" discussed on CBS Sports Eye On College Basketball Podcast

"If somebody tries to say something funny. It's pretty structured. But this is obviously not structured. I mean, look. And what are the things I know this and other people have noticed as well, I see it in the comments. I have like a little nervous tick where I'm constantly I'm constantly right here. But you're using the wrong finger right now. That's not what I'd like this all the time. There you go. So I don't know that I do that. But not until we started and I'm like, it's impossible for me to talk without seeing myself. So I'm assuming I've been sitting around at dinner tables and bar of my entire life, like having conversations with people and constantly just like this. What do you think's going on with me? I don't know, but are you trying to grow it Timmy's dash? Like, what do you think I'm doing? I don't know. Listen, I don't know, but I like the fact that it's nice and comfortable and casual. I'm also blown away by like I've only I've known you to be you and to know what you look like and it always amuses me that people have this vision of what and I get it. Sometimes, you know, before the era, by the way, this is the first college basketball podcast ever to be live streamed on YouTube video. Don't forget about that. We got a note from a guy like from Spain and he was like, I just think you guys know. And using the wonderful, if the gentleman is watching or listening now, I'm not being serious. That's kind of the bit of the podcast here or there. And I believe I saw someone was watching this in Australia at almost two in the morning. People are absolutely amazing. The point I was going to make though is I hear ya, when you would listen to when I would listen to podcast 8 ten years ago and I wouldn't know what a host would look like and you see them for the first time. It's always interesting how the visual doesn't match sometimes what you have in your head with the voice there. But with you, I've never seen it with as many people as you. You look like how you sound like to me and always like you've always looked like that. And except when you opted to have hair, which by the way, Parrish can have hair if he wants. He just juices not too. I will she grow it back, but he just doesn't. I had a bald spot. I noticed it. I was watching a game that I happened to be attending, sitting courtside. And the camera is going back and forth left to right, whatever. And it's scanning me every time because I'm sitting right there. And I'm like, oh wow, I had no idea how that ball spot. And I went to my wife and I was like, 'cause you don't see the back of your head. Like, you don't see the back of your head. And so I went to my mom and I was like, hey, why didn't you tell me? I had a bald spot to this degree, and she's like, I didn't want to be the one to point it out. She's being nice, right? And after that, I was just like, I would rather be bald than have a bald spot. And so here I am, for better or worse, probably worse. Here, but before we do that, I need to congratulate you. Once you turn that hat around. Can you turn the hat around? So people can see. So as GP takes off, my man, as people well know, huge mets fan, you got yourself Max Scherzer. So congrats on that. But I got to admit, as we wrap the pod, can't you just aren't you wired to believe that it's going to be like Scherzer pitches 14 games next season? And he's just not what he was. Isn't that how you are wired? Like there's no way he's going to be the same pitcher for the mets as he has been for most of the past decade. I am wired to believe he will be hurt in July. Yeah. No, it's like you have this weird, this is part of being a mets fan. You have this weird thing that happens where you can't feel good positive about anything because you just assume it's going to go wrong. And so like I saw somebody tweet like a baseball guy, tweet that the Met might have the two best pictures in baseball. Period. Like the best Jacob degrom, and the second best Max Scherzer. And when I read that, I don't get excited. You know what? I go, they're going to get hurt. There's no way to live life. Like when you can't even get excited about good news, because you assume it'll end poorly. What is wrong with you? I know. Got one more review here. Okay. What do we got? Person says, I promise to preset many, many times with many, many people. This has been wonderful. We went a little longer than you expected, but a little fun at the end. Thank you to everyone again in the comments, you guys. Listen, I hope you come back and develop a little bit of a community here. I think that's, I think that's absolutely fabulous there. But yeah, Friday 10 a.m. is the as long as there's no emergency pod situation. I certainly hope not started December. We will be back then talk about whatever has happened in the next couple of days and then obviously preview the weekend. Again, I'm going to send this out one more time I might remind at the beginning of the podcast on Friday. We did have a couple suggestions when I asked for them in the YouTube comments.

Why Investigating 2020 Voter Fraud Is About Saving Our Country

"And Mike, again, help my audience understand. You have led the charge in trying to bring a case to the Supreme Court. That would be signed by attorneys general from states around the country, what is the crux of this case that you're bringing? In other words, what is the crux of the case that you're hoping that the Supreme Court will look at? Okay, I would rather I'm not a lawyer. I would rather that everybody go to Frank speech dot com. You can view the whole case there. But it's stiff. There's a couple of things. If to explain it, there's 5 states that are getting that are definitely defendants. And that's your Wisconsin, Pennsylvania. Michigan, Arizona, and Georgia. And now all the states have standing. The evidence that's there now is not the evidence that was brought before them back last year. And last year when they said they didn't have standing, now they have standards, not one but two ways. They absolutely help with how to accept it on standing because every state's got standing. The attorneys generals know Anita I need everyone to know this. We brought the case other lawyers who grew up this case that we brought into these different attorneys general. We met with them. We showed them show them that the election fraud happened in their state, Eric. I bought their voter rolls. An Alabama had to pay 30 some $1000 out of my pocket to buy the voter rolls who bought who voted and then the voter rolls after. So then we went in. We canvass. We showed him it happened in their state. I'll give you an example, Alabama. We show it happen there. And I said, you guys need to look at this complaint. And get on board with us. We need to protect our country. This is about who are a Democrat or Republican thing. This is about saving our

"That nomination is falling apart and it's due to at least four or 5 Democrats declared they're probably not going to be on board So that's only happened with one or two other nominees along the same journey of getting nominees approved So this one looks like it's not going to make it and probably for good reason I think she's on record with some stuff that would be hard for many to take Obviously even within her own party When it comes to Jerome Powell I've met with him talk to him several times He at least has made the pivot to where he's being realistic on what the fed's going to have to do with inflation And obviously that means at some point we're going to probably have to raise interest rates do the things that let's just look back to what it took to ringing out in a similar fashion back in the early 80s That's just when I started I've got terrible memories of having a home mortgage at 10% and then business loans were close to 20% early into the 80s and we got so much debt embedded into the economy now both in government and the private sector It would be a fiasco It's gonna be a lot harder thing to get through for Jerome Powell as.

"A Bloomberg business lash And I'm Karen Moscow Stocks are climbing as dip buyers emerge after a sell off with analysts citing prospects for intense volatility amid a spike in global coronavirus cases and signals the Federal Reserve will step up efforts to curb inflation We check the markets every 15 minutes throughout the trading day on Bloomberg the S&P 500 at 1.2% of 52 points At 46 19 the Dow Jones Industrial Average up 8 tenths percent or 273 points at 34,753 and the NASDAQ at 1.1% or a 166 points at 15,702 Ten year treasury down ten 30 seconds held 1.47% that yield on the two year .58%

Bloomberg business flash Tom and Paul Karen thanks so much Paul swung Ken of course so much talk about the pandemic again with a market lift here This morning Paul my solution to this is simple I'll let others decide about the science and the politics and all that We should just have every company over a certain number of employees and I'll let people smarter than me decide what that number is They have to publish what percent are vaccinated Yeah That's all Yeah That kind of goes to the bigger issue Tom or the issue of the day is it relates to mandates should employers and how should employers mandate that their employees get vaccinated and moving target let's get closer to the story Aaron Mulvaney Bloomberg law senior legal reporter joins us so Aaron where are we with company mandates for the vaccine Honestly it's pretty split on whether or not employers are on their own demanding that their workforce be vaccinated a lot are fearing that such a mandate will lead to resignations at a time when there's a labor shortage in a lot of industries So the issue is I mean I seem to recall the President Biden saying hey if you're bigger than a hundred employees you got to get your folks vaccinated But is that enforceable or kind of where are we with that That is a big question plaguing employers because it's actually mired in a battle right now because osha issued a regulation for companies that have more than a hundred workers They would either have to have a shot or test rule demand And that is right now being challenged by a ton of different groups and there's a court case pending on whether or not that will actually go into effect early next year Is there any proof that mandates work Actually there have been mandates at various manufacturing facilities and recent months And there have been a reduction in COVID cases at those facilities and it makes intuitive sense of course having a vaccinator of course would mean super cases How do you respond that Congress and French hill of Little Rock said today we need to keep educating people Does that the path we're going to go down Well I think that there is a lot of I mean my personal opinion is I think there's a lot of scientific research out there that may have a great evidence that the vaccine works but I think there's a big political debate right now that I think that I'll say federal officials think the answer might be mandate And forcing businesses to be on the same page and then they wouldn't have to have this tension of worrying about Resignations or that kind of split that divide there Aaron Rodney thank you so much Bloomberg law here on the debate of the moment I mean there was so van der leyden John and I are going back and forth while the show's going on Right And we both agreed We've got to stop the show and do this Yeah She is saying do we need a mandate across all of Europe Mints any words No And then that's certainly being debated but I think of a company close to home for those of us who fly out of Newark which is United Airlines They were one of the first big companies to mandate their employees to be vaccinated And they've got a very high vaccination rate Well north of 90% and they have their turnover has been very low So a lot of folks will hold that out as a success case Tim O'Brien Bloomberg opinion is that with opinion column yesterday saying the retail industry they need to get on board and they're saying no let's wait till after the holiday shopping season before you would force someone else And Tim was just saying hey there's a lot of people in the retail industry They're interacting day to day with a lot of people That would make sense Yeah a mayor de Blasio of New York would join me this morning and he just said flat out there has to be a mandate for airlines Let's go Yeah Yeah so the city of New York has had a mandate for city employees And again extraordinary high vaccination rates So again another example that a lot of people will hold up as a success And Paul this is important You know I brought this up and Paul and I and all of the team here at Bloomberg's veins we really try to stay out of the politics But whatever the politics is just publish 'cause I don't think people know that United Airlines is 90 X percent I'll be honest Ken Cooper with his great leadership at Bloomberg I can't remember the Ken Cooper statistic on Bloomberg I don't know if it's a public number or not But it's a 90s statistic Yes You know it's up there It is And there are lots of other companies out there Aaron Mulvaney was mentioning some meat packing companies again They had to make that decision really early because they were getting hit hard by this pandemic early on and they a lot of those companies made the very difficult choice of we have to get our people mandated because we are critical in the global food chain and we have to be up and running at full capacity Are we open right now for trading Oh yeah Sure 25 minutes And it's that by the dip mentality that a lot of people talk about Tom and we got that pivot yesterday about a pivot from a very clear pivot from fed chairman Powell that all right we had to speed up the tape ring which means we gotta probably quicken the pace and that brings rate hikes a little bit forward I mean go back early October I think that's when afterthought lost the AirPod after owning it for three days Apple it's out of moonshot That's not the right word but Apple is migrated up 21% since before Columbus day Yep I mean who would have thought I thought they were going

Miranda Devine on How Hunter Biden Lost His Laptops

"Well we're talking about Hunter Biden losing all his property and he lost as far as we know three laptops the one we have that he dropped off at the macro picked up There was another one he left behind at his psychiatrist's home and that was kept in a safe And this third one that he talked about in a video that he made with a prostitute that he was engaged with at that point And he was just discussing how he'd been on this danger in Vegas He'd woken up in this penthouse apartment of penthouse hotel room that had this gorgeous swimming pool that was sort of out of the balcony And he woke up face down drowning basically And he came to and saw all these Russian these Russian drug dealers that he divided into the room were basically stealing all his stuff and they stole his laptop He's telling the prostitute about this sometime later and she's like oh well you know if they're going to do anything with it because no you don't understand My father is running for president and this could be a problem for me I could get blackmailed and I've got gazillions of dollars So he was aware at that point how he's you know losing all these laptops actually was significant in terms of his father's career But he didn't really seem to care And the point I always think of that when he dropped off that lap book in Delaware he ended up going to California He went back to shed over where it used to have a loose benders And he met the woman who's now his wife and he really never came back to leave on these coasts But he dropped that laptop off just a couple of weeks before his father This was April 2019 before his father announced that he was going to be president or going to run for president

You were in front of a semi. Now I didn't cut the semi off or anything. I was way ahead of the semi, but he saw me change the lanes without. And I think I did it twice. I got in the middle lane and then I went over to the right lane. And I did not turn on my charge signal on the highway. And he said, all right, let me do the paperwork and I'll have you on your way. And I thought, okay, and I said, yes, sir. And I sat there thinking great. I got a ticket, how much is it going to be? Such is life is going to be any points on my driving record. But it was you had to be dead to rights. He was right. I didn't put my signal in. He came back to the car. He said, okay, mister Gallagher, here's your driver's license, and here's a warning. We're going to give you a warning. You got to be careful. Don't change lanes without putting on your turn signal. I was so happy and like a dummy. Not like a dummy. I mean, I met it.

In 1862, Abraham Lincoln Met With Black Leaders on the Idea of Their Own Country

"So Liberia was an attempt to do what Malcolm X later wanted to do. But in the 1850s, a group of blacks went to Abraham Lincoln and Abraham Lincoln was like, look, if you guys want your own country, we can arrange that. If you black leaders want your own country, we can help you with that. And they deliberated amongst themselves. And of course, deliberation comes before a decision according to Aristotle, deliberation is one of the highest forms and contemplation. I'm sorry. Deliberation leads to contemplation which locally will lead the truth. And they came back to Abraham Lincoln, what they said? They said, this is our home. This happened on August 14th, 1862, Abraham Lincoln did something unprecedented. He met with black leaders all free black clergymen. And he said, we're happy to support a new black country. They were even talking about South Africa, South America, I'm sorry. And Lincoln mentioned Liberia because this was a suggestion before. Now, this movement didn't really gain much traction until Malcolm X resurrected this idea before his assassination. Where Malcolm X basically said that blacks can never be free in this country. We have to go back. And you could say a lot about Malcolm X, that actually is the logical conclusion. That is the logical answer if you think America systemically racist. Leave. Now, I don't think America systemically racist, so I'm not encouraging people to leave. But if you believe that like tah anisi Coates does, then why are you still

Author Lee Strobel on What Near-Death Experiences Tell Us

"What is in this book, the case for heaven? This is your discussions with people who have seen who have experienced these kinds of things. Yeah, I interviewed neuroscientists, for instance, and others on the question of what a near death experience is really tell us. Because I was a skeptic about this. I thought no wait, they're just hallucinations. That's just oxygen. Even as a Christian, you were a skeptic of that stuff. I didn't think that the science supported. I thought, okay, I can't believe what the Bible says, but certainly near death experiences are just mythology and make believe in wishful thinking. But what I learned was that there have been 900 scientific articles written about near death experiences over the last 40 years and published in scientific and medical journals. This is a very well researched area of science. In fact, the lancet, which is the famous medical journal in England, did an article that said that when you look at all of the alternative explanations for near death experiences, oh, it's oxygen deprivation. So none of those explanations explain what actually takes place. And then I interviewed John Burke for my book. John Burke is a Christian pastor in Austin, Texas. He has studied a thousand near death experiences over 35 years. And his conclusion, which was radical to me, is that when you look at the core of what happens in these near death experiences, yes, there are some differences. But look at the core of what actually takes place. Don't look at how people interpret it, but look what actually occurs, it is consistent with Christian theology. That was very important to me. And you mentioned the word corroboration, and I'm with you. I mean, you know, when somebody tells me, oh, I died and I met Jesus and these 5 foot ten is brown eyes. I may go, okay, well, I can't corroborate that. But when we have a study that was done of 21 blind people, most of them blind since birth, who, during their near death experiences, could see for the first

"One of the points you make that really blew me away Was that people die for their religion all the time All kinds of religions Throughout human history That's not unique at all That's not proof of anything But you make the point that nobody Nobody dies and suffers For something they absolutely know to be false So why is it that the people who so closely surrounded Jesus Christ as apostles But suffered through the most painful deaths and agonizing lives afterwards evangelizing his cause if they knew it to be false Yeah that's exactly right Because I said people were telling me well you know that cycles were willing to die for their faith And indeed there's 7 inches sources that confirm that they live lives of deprivation and suffering as a result of their proclamation issues And so they said well look they're willing to die for it They must be true So we met That doesn't make sense As you said Dan kind of concrete pilots in World War II or terrorists today crashing airplanes are doing suicide bombings They're willing to die for what they believe So what's the difference And it turns out the difference is exactly like you said a terrorist today who blows himself up with a suicide bomb He sincerely believes with all of his heart If he does that he'll go to Paradise to be with his guide Now does he know for sure No we can't know for sure but he's been plotted He believes it and he's willing to die for it That proves nothing But of all people of ever lived in history the disciples were unique position They didn't just believe Jesus rose from the dead and thus proved just the son of God They were there They touched him They talk with her They ate with them After it was resurrected They knew the truth They knew whether it was a lie or whether it actually happened And knowing the truth they were willing to die for Nobody knowingly and willingly dies for what they know is a lie And so that is as good confirmation that what they're saying is

Waukesha Christmas Parade Suspect Darrell Brooks' History of Crime

"Daryl Brooks killed 5 people and possibly many others we don't know. We pray that those people make it through. He was charged previously with recklessly endangering the safety of others. In a very recent case, he purposefully ran over a woman, with his vehicle at a gas station. In the case this month, the woman told police Brooks purposefully ran her over with his vehicle. And she was walking through a gas station after he had followed her there after a fight, according to a criminal complaint. The woman was hospitalized for her injuries, so he has a tendency to run people over with his car. Daryl Brooks junior does. And yet he was released on a $1000 bail and is now a mass murdering terrorist. I'm already gonna tell you this is gonna unfold. The media will ignore this. They will not cover this. They will move on to their next thing. Front page of CNN dot com suspect and parade may have been fleeing another scene. It says here on the front page of CN. 5 people are dead and more than 40 are injured after an SUV, plowed into a Wisconsin parade. Officials believe the suspect was escaping another incident. Oh, that makes a perfectly fun. No pictures, no information around the person who did this, of course not. The Milwaukee county district attorney's office issued two counts of second degree recklessly endangering safety and Fallon in possession of firearm in 2020. Cash bail was originally sent at $10,000 and then reduced to 7500. Unlike some other states Wisconsin requires a payment for the full amount of bail in any criminal case. In February 2021, the state was prepared to proceed with a scheduled jury trial, mister Brooks was still in custody on this matter, and previously made a demand for a speedy jury trial. Because another jury trial was still in progress for the same court, the defendant's demand for a speedy trial could not be met. The case was adjourned and bail was reduced to $500.

Eric Reminisces About His Friendship With Larry David

"We continue now with Eric's interview at the Babylon B we'll have to ask, because you said that you were friends with Larry David at one point? Yes, at dinner, his apartment. When I was writing the hero pieces, the Atlantic monthly published a couple of them. And there was a humor reading. So it was like 1987 and somebody got me to do a humor reading with Roz chast's husband you know Roz chast, The New Yorker cartoonist, whatever. Her husband did some stuff, and there was somebody else. I can't remember, but I was one of these like two or three people who like in a basement in New York did a comedy reading. And this friend of mine that I met at one of these writers colony says, you got to meet my friend Larry. He will love you. He loves you and he's so funny. He's one of these before he became famous. Like right before. So he came and he loved what I did like the humor pieces. I think these fewer pieces are on my website, Eric and Texas dot com air contacts dot com. Eric and Texas dot com. But the humor pieces are still there. And so anyway, so we became friends and he really loved what I was doing, and he connected me with his manager whom he eventually married, and she was only taking she had him. She had Chris Elliott. You know, like, really, I was like, I've made it now. Yeah. And then I became a born again Christian and I threw it all in the garbage. I burned all of that with my elo albums and all that satanic stuff. Because humors of the devil. No, I never really overtly turned away from it. I just kind of drifted away. But so Larry and I became friends. I remember he had a dinner party in his apartment, and the actual Kramer came in. But at the time, I didn't realize he was the actual Kramer. Did you know he was racist? Or not so funny? That's a funny question. That's a funny question. I would kill to meet Michael Richards. I just love that man so much. But yeah, so I think when I became like a conservative Jesus freak, Larry David probably had problems

"Welcome back to one on one with Marjorie Taylor Greene. Marjorie, it's such an indictment of the business as usual, political establishment, not just the rhinos, but actually the GOP establishment that we've had hundreds of arrests. We've had the FBI chase down people who weren't even inside Congress on January 6th in Alaska. I've got friends telling me my friend was not even near Congress and they tracked her with the phone data. The phone company gave the geolocating data were you outside Congress, just insanity, the FBI hunting down these people instead of BLM or antifa. You are one of a handful of politicians, citizen politicians whose actually trying to get to the bottom of it and to fight for these Americans who are guaranteed by our constitution, a speedy, a speedy judicial process, you went to the prison, they refused you access you were so kind to call us after your visit for those who didn't hear your story. Tell us what you found when you went to this hellhole in D.C. where these people are being kept prisoner. I found something I never thought I'd see in our country. I found something that we've seen in movies and we hear stories about in other countries. I found out that what I thought was Internet rumors and not fully true, I found out it's all true. Everything we've been hearing is true about what's happening is January 6th defendants. Not only that I've talked to people who've had their homes raided by the FBI in the dark of night. I talked to one man and his wife, where they had handcuffed their child with handcuffed and she was dragged out in the front yard and nothing but a nightie and then the small town newspaper where they lived took a picture of her and put her on the front page of the newspaper, and that woman wasn't even in Washington, D.C. on January 6th. She was in California at home. And this is what's happening, but then I met people and Sebastian, I want to tell you I tried for months to get in that jail and several of my colleagues went with me, Louie gohmert, Matt Gaetz, Paul gosar, Andy Biggs, bob good. Those are the ones that have come along. They've been there every time, but they've definitely tried to. And I've tried every single time to get in.

Now it's been one of the more disappointing seasons that i can ever remember because for ninety days stretch for just about three consecutive months from may until the end of july. The mets held onto first place that entire time. It tyson you into thinking that this team is going to be a competitive one But you know what really we should have seen the the writing on the wall. The mets today they they one nine four of the nationals. That's great you know. Sixty three and sixty seven on the year now. Four games under five hundred. Would you believe that. On june sixteenth. This team was thirty. Five and twenty five thirty five and twenty five. Think about that. They have been so bad since that point. It's unbelievable but thirty. Five and twenty five or ten games over five hundred four games under five hundred now seven and a half games back division on july thirty first. Let's fast forward at even from that date. I just mentioned july thirty first six weeks after the ten games over five hundred high watermark they were fifty five and forty eight and had a four-game lead on the day. They acquired havi bias. Now remember his name because he's found himself embroiled in the center of a controversy. Where it's been the mets pitted against their fans. That will get into in a minute. but so since. The date acquired havi baya's the mets of gone eight and nine thousand nine hundred.

"Tweets all right dave bleacher tweets for a mundy. We've got a couple of years some good questions. We got andrew. Stout i at thomas. Ac stout injure rates in so adam wainwright is tied for the second most wins and major league baseball second most innings pitched in an er a under three. Oh and he turns forty before his next start. Is he slipping. I guess maybe ascending into the gushing slipping is a bad word there. I'm so excited. First of all taylor to answer bleacher tweets. This is very fun. So adam wainwright no-doubt unbelievable year guy who kind of looked at the end of line two or three years ago. Is cy young contender. I wouldn't go that far. I'd say maybe he might get some back in fourth or fifth place but if you look at some of the numbers he's only thirteenth in the national league war he's tenth and era. There's so many nfl starters. Having great years you know that wainwright still is beyond me walker dealers. Probably the leader at this point you know He's thirteen and two two point. Oh to right. no doubt. He's the favourite may be corporate burns. Brandon woodruff kevin. Gaas men. max scherzer see. This is where it's waiting majlis avenue unbelievable years so adam wainwright not really a ending tender there. You have it todd. Alec pratt at todd. Seven writes in craig. Kimbrel has given up five earned runs and two home runs all season for teams. That are not the cubs. He's given up six earned runs and three home runs to a bad cubs team. Have you ever seen a dominant player get traded mid season and struggled so badly against his old team type pratt. I assume that's not the time pratt to play for the mets back. In the day that one would take some research to give you a good answer. My response here is yet craig kimbrel and liam hendriks have both been scuffling a little bit when they made that trade. We kind of expect they would have this absolute dominant one to bullpen punch at dinner. The games and i think a lot of people when they acquired kimbrel automatically made the white sox the favourite to come out of the but so far they have not been a dominant do also. That's something to watch for the white sox september can hendrix kimbro. Get back on track heading into the playoffs. But yeah then. He struggle against the cubs since trade. The topic is made for podcasts. Or radio it's like the white sox have closer problem. What's tony larussa gonna do. Hopefully i. it's interesting because we always evaluate these trades. The day they happen at the deadline that one out everybody thought absolute great trade for the white sox kimbrel had been. He'd been the best closer in baseball the first half with the cubs and he hasn't been that with the white sox doesn't mean we get october doesn't pitch twelve scoreless innings but it's a little bit of a concern for chicago right. Now let's go to andrew campbell at real cam. True andrew rates in if the yankees. Just keep on winning. Is there any chance. Garrett cole sneaks in at the very end and steals the al cy young award. He's thirteen and six so far. Two hundred strikeouts. What's his second in major league baseball in his era since at two point eight all while pitching in the al east. Well andrew count weird question. Because i think it's always been garrett cole and lance lynn sort of in one spot all year for the al cy young but now lens had a couple rough outings lately. Ziara which was in the low twos is up to five nine. So i think cole is the favorite right. Now he leaves the al and graphs war. Two point eight zero er a to me. He's the number one guy. So i don't think he's sneaking up at anybody. The guy who might be sneaking up is robbie ray. He's only nine and five but two seven to your a tough strikeouts. He's on a roll So i think kohl's the favourite i think robbie ray is number two right now and lance. Lynn is probably down the number. Three with nathanael volley few like war. He's kind of a dark horse Coal in war. Bobby meacham at bobby meacham. One rates giancarlo. Stanton has been on a tear at the plate since about the same time. He started playing games in the outfield. Do we know who was behind the decision not to play the field. All these months was at standing or the yankees. Yeah it's a good question. Another former player. Writing in bobby meacham up and coming superstar for the yankees in the eighties. That's a good question you know yes. Stanton did not play his first game in the outfield. Until i believe july thirtieth the first game anthony. Rizzo played with the team. This make you wonder. Is there correlation. Here that stan has started hitting since he's been playing the field. I don't know look obviously. They were to try to preserve his health. But you gotta let these guys play stanton always a pretty good defensive outfielder with the marlins so he's not gonna hurt the team out there. I think getting them in the field is helped and last one for today. Pk steinberg our friend writes in. Honestly what's tampa bay's secret freaking sauce. And why can't the pirates orioles rockies etc emulate and replicated their small market team with huge market success in a scoff at the angels dodgers and padres and yankees. What is it for you dave. Well how much time do we have to go into this. No the key to the raise. One organizational depth. They draft. Well they develop well both in the states and latin america and the key of course is the rapid turnover of the roster. They'll trade a player not as he's entering his final year before free agency but two or three years before he hits free agency which means they get a lot more in return. You know if a player has a career year though flip you know and get more younger players in return like. I don't think it's probably easier to be a fan of the race because you're always learning new players but that churn of the roster they make it work it takes a lot of guts to trade young players coming off good years but they're not afraid to do that and they basically have been competitive now since two thousand eight it. It's hard to pull off with their resources. They've done it and they continue to do it. They're gonna win that division. I'm over here. you can hear now. The world small violin for playing for tampa fans because they have to learn new player names who was not the best way to phrase that they they do a great job finding relievers kind of out of nowhere. They i hate to give credit to the front office is it's the players who would lose games. But it's more cohesiveness throughout the organization. And i know when i talked to raise players. They buy in completely and they know who's gonna be spending six years in tampa bay there no at some point. They're going to get traded. But somehow kevin cash and the coaching staff front office get complete absolute by in on what. They're trying to do there. And it works pretty jelly over here. Thanks.

Nolan has always been so talented when he was in high school. He played a lot of shortstop. I was just trying to crack the lineup but You know. I still was growing into my own and nolan. I think was still kind of Grown into his body big body but had hadn't fully gone all coordination yet. I feel like so. I think a few balls skewed through there but if you put us back on that same infield against high school players with both of us on the left side. I'd like our chances that time thing. Thank you over the weekend. Roxie spoke with the yankees manager. Aaron boone all right kevin with the skipper new york yankees. Aaron boone in aaron. The team is just on an amazing role right now. One the first two in this series. Thirteen straight wins. It's not just the offense but with your ball club right now. Aaron what are you state. I'm seeing twenty six guys in a room that are all contributing in meaningful weights. I think that's been the most satisfying thing. This is first of all. I love the focus of our guys. We understand where we are season. How important all. These games are kind. That just singular mindset of what tonight due to today to help us win a ball game and it's really taken everyone everyone's had meaningful contributions and that's been a lot of fun and it's come from whether it's been the defense base running offense Starting relievers everyone's played a role in this. You know as we've kind of gone to stretch to You know we're beating teams to this. We're playing really good teams through the stretch to and that's so that's been something that it's just been fun to watch these guys go out. It really compete as well as they are right now even when you had similar struggles aaron earlier in the year you always confident in this group and when you brought in arizona fit in you brought in gallo it that clay and also in terms of the guy's already had in your clubhouse now confident you were in bam and then you get these editions in it. Seems like it's been a great boost forever but no question Those guys big offering balanced to our lineup They've they've come in and sit in really well right away. Room in one thing about this group that i never questioned. Even in our lowest points of the season is there was always an underlying. It's that they add. And i think they always while we're frustrated at times. I think they always believed that we were going to turn things. Around play the way we're capable of that never waver and it had started really show itself now and you look at debt you have to your lineup baron and just it seems like there's the competencies one through nine with this group even if you're off to a slow start they'll get going at some point. Is that the way you look at this. Just because of the depth than you know how difficult it would be to pitch to your lineup. Yeah in that's always been kind of our mantra guests here or or some. We try to focus on his is taking really tough heavy at bats and we feel like over time in the course of a game or the course of a week that pays dividends so a pitcher may go through a time or two and half success. Because they're really executing but we feel like if we can make it difficult more often than not working to breakthrough against in some and it certainly over time game in a game out. We're definitely gonna breakthrough for consistently taken tough team at bats and we've done a lot better job of that over the last month or two. Aaron appreciate the time. Thanks you bet roxy bleacher.

But that's surprise me little bit that there was such strong sentiment with folks working other front offices like yeah. You're giving qualifying offer to both those guys. What do you think. Yeah that makes sense. You know the call find offers been around eighteen thousand nine hundred million in recent years. It's a pretty risk free investment for the mets. You know that there's a lot of upside on both those players if they do accept it. I'm with you syndergaard. Hasn't pitched in two years about that. Yeah i can't eighteen million for a guy who pitched in still hole when he comes back in september to pitch in relief. We'll see if that happens conforto. Yeah that's one bad year after five or six good years. So i'm with you. I think teams will be in on him. Yeah so. I can see that the mets do that. I still think they need you know. They need a answer in center. Field move brandon nimmo over to a corner higher by would have been a nice fit at second base with jeff mcneil moving back into kind of utility role. But that's not gonna happen so maybe they just live with mcneil at second for another year. They need a third baseman to me. Jd davis just not have the glove to play there. Yeah semes- new york mess.

One hundred fifty one hundred and eighty million dollars turned down at deal just under one hundred eighty million dollars from the cubs and After him then comes francisco indoor who probably has the most healing to do in this situation than anybody more than sandy alderson.

"Don't like they don't like it when we say that but whatever they're doing the same work so i can say The the there was always a little handcuffed. Was kind of like one foot in one foot down. It always felt but with this team i actually. I can't even explain. I mean you just have underperforming players top to bottom. Yeah and i do think that maybe this also just speaks to. Exactly how reliant. The team was on jacob. Degrom where. I think we all kind of knew how much he was carrying the team. Conceptually sort of but to see. Since he got hurt there was a stat that they put up on the broadcast last night. In the last thirty. Five games So since two graham was injured the mets starters have a five point two four era. they've only lasted for four point. Four innings per start and they have a grand total of three wins so like a pitcher wins. The team itself is fourteen and twenty one over that span but the starters themselves only have recorded. Three of those fourteen wins. Is i think that that really hammered home. Just how much. The team needed to graham to go out there every fifth day and spin these incredible performances and he was on track for one of the best seasons by pitcher that we'd seen In history. I mean he's still You know his numbers when it's all and done we'll be eye-popping but the fact that he's missed so much of the second half is really crippling to this team and then you have on the other hand. You always talked about philly which talk about bryce harper going on a run and and playing like an mvp. Which i think is kind of funny. Because he's he's playing at roughly the same level. He had been the past seasons. I think there's this perception because of the contract. He signed because of joining philly and all of the expectations there in the fact that they had this long playoff drought and he hasn't really been able to power them out of that that oh he's been disappointing. Now he's having. This amazing breakout year. He's playing at the same level. He has been playing at and it's time to maybe reappraise him and start appreciation appreciating how good he has been really sent signing that contract for them but yeah i think they're another team that has consistently been less than the some of their parts. Maybe the difference this season is they're getting more out of those parts whereas the mets just continued to not be able to really have like you said jeff have guys overperform or meet expectations at a bare minimum. All at the same time in the same season. Which maybe we we don't give credit to as an ingredient for a team doing well and and you think about teams that consistently make the playoffs teams that are consistently contending. One of the secrets to that is..

"But based on what everyone says is that was an amazing pick. I mean the mets locked out that the other owners were cheating out and not wanting to pay the slot dollar amounts to other draft picks Ahead of them so they do really fortunate to have such a young stud coming up and they could. They could use this study pitching how to. I know they have matt allen recovering from tommy. John surgery Jt gin he just returned from his own that he Had before even getting drafted so there are restocking the farm with some amazing pitching talent. And i think it's really gonna them in the future who right now Of as far as prospects would be ready to maybe tickets shot at the team. You know when they have the call up in september we might get a look at and you know who might be challenging for jobs next season. I ten just wrote an article on rising apple. So if you wanna go check. I want you apprentice go. Alvarez's already know i. I just wanted to segue into the article. Yeah yeah yeah he. He's talking prospect now though that that that comprise me. I didn't think he was gonna rise up quickly. That's just tremendous to see a catching prospect for the mets high. I don't they've maybe dr no With at some point that high. But i can't imagine that early on in his miley career. I mean you wanna feel old francisco. Alvarez is nineteen is holding his seventh eighth best prospect in baseball. And this is. I think is Would have been a third professional season if he played last year. So that that young yeah time to figure out anything. So the skies really the limit with him so i think a lot of people are guessing. He'll be here by twenty twenty three Taking twenty twenty four so big. He's still going to be a young choir. I am very excited to see what he can do. And i guess because of a lot of the moving around the players and things like that that it's it's made The teams struggle i. I haven't seen it lately. But i know syracuse numbers win whilst numbers were were absolutely brutal is is that the same crescendo. Kind of effect happening in the rest of the minor league system. Yeah last time. I checked the other minor league teams in the mets system. Were doing that. Great I check in on the rumble ponies. Every so often. They don't even have anybody that's doing that. Well i think the problem with churches because they have a couple of pitchers with some numbers they had a guy. I don't even remember his name. I was looking at it. He was like oh and eight with an eight point. Eight two year ray. It's making wonder why they're even keeping on to those guys and rather than stretching out career guys like our tropeano wanted him to be stretched out and maybe possibly be an emergency starter. But that hasn't been the case but not the biggest problem in the world. No no i mean you know. I think though good that the mets are their re stocking their minor league system. Because that's really been you know. Oughta stuff that. I've read over the years. That's really been the shortcoming for this team. You know other than obviously the pitching prospects but overall we really have not had a strong farm system compared to a lot of the other teams in the major leagues. And hopefully that will change in the next couple of years. Playing playing. vegas didn't help you..

Islander draft john. Welcome back to our to here. We go your coffee It was done a long time ago but as a kicked in. Yeah i should be fine all right. Well thanks to brian. Thanks appreciate it running joke anyway. We are going to welcome in our guest for these first portion show. He is a frequent contributor to wgn sports. Great guy and a ardent met writer for the website called rising great website. If you don't subscribe to it you need to because it's a great place to get. You met information and tim. Boyle joins us on. Wgn sports struck. Tim it's gary in john. How are you tonight. i'll are you guys doing. We're doing quite good. But i gotta ask you real serious question okay. The mets just picked up richhill two years older than the manager. Okay i'm fifty seven years old. I'm a left-hander. I through high school ball. I never got fascinating seventy five miles an hour but through good junk to i gotta shot. How fast can you tell you. Tell seventy five okay. Well we're chill. You know you got Nine mile per hour curve ball saying this is a one thing about this year. That really irk me with the business. The first year. I think the left open the season with a walker. Everybody younger than me. So i'm so right now. Forty one years old. I've got almost a decade left before i thought. Hey maybe we can be teammates. One day we just tells you how old we are. Okay dwight. Gooden was born a year after me. So nineteen eighty-four. I was beginning to feel old again. Thanks to him. That makes me feel great man. One hundred hundred gains in and could you couldn't believe in your wildest dreams that we'd be sitting here talking as we approached trade deadline a week away. That the mets got four game lead and it and we talked earlier in the show. I don't know if you've got to listen. But it's it's a great testament to this organization that they've gotten production and got responses from just about. Everybody and i can't remember ever saying that in years that you've got every every guy on this roster has done something at some point to be critical to hero at least at some point. Yeah definitely i think the difference between now in the last few years is that this is an ongoing whereas remember. There was the rajai davis game. Where he took uber down from syracuse valley might have been Carlos gomez had a big hit but when we look back at that that was only about a month stand. But we're we're almost an august now and still There's guys that don't even on the roster anymore. That were big contributors. Games guys. like billy mckinney Fargos who just got on waiver Yeah but they've had like you said they've had different hero every night on to mock neto had that nice to stretch working just hit a home late to tie the game or give them a lead So this is definitely one of those teen years more than anything else. I know they do have Some stars leading the way about Nobody's really good out. Especially when you look at the overall number degrom and who knows what he'll be back before you get to question. John just want to say if you go onto rising apple dot com timber degreed article yesterday. And i'll just read the headlines. And ode to. Billy mckinney are dearly departed..

But let's let's switch gears now again. The mets we. We sat here in march and april. You know we kept wondering ourselves. How are they going to stay. Afloat will not be able to to stay with the atlanta's the phillies and the washington's of the nationally eastern we look now you know Ninety games into the regular season and the mets have a four-game lead over philly fully is just five hundred metzer. Eight games over five hundred with their win. Today against the toronto blue jays five games up on the atlanta braves who they have a five game series with them starting tomorrow at city field. And i think nine thousand nine lead over the washington nationals..

It was a shortstop on the colorado rockies. I think you know went on the dl. Because he i think he something broke his foot when some frozen venison got dropped or something like that. He was going up to his apartment. He dropped the thing of meat and it broke his foot. Okay okay but stranger things. Stranger things have happened. Just watching the mets right now You know As i as. I said to john i said the four magic letters r. i. s. p. and i just can't i can't fathom a team that has a solid defensively as this can't can't hit a lick when there's when there's a guy standing ninety feet from home plate. I this this is where this small ball This is where. I missed. A willie off style mets I miss those bunt singles every once in a while. I miss those bonds that you know the players over i missed the squeeze play You know. I think the mets did a little more small ball They probably would generate an an extra runner too but at the same time I think what the hitting general it's still cold in new york released..

"So i. Could you walk us through. Things unfolded between jared porter amiss reporter while jared porter was at the cubs one. Did they first meet each other. So this reporter. I met jared porter. June twenty six two thousand and sixteen order at this point in time is the cubs director of professional scouting. He's an elevator at yankee stadium. They'd talk briefly exchange cards. That's about it. This is an interaction that that seems fairly normal. Later that afternoon porter begins texting her and according to espn before the day is over he'd ask her to get a drink. Three times he began sending her techs and they corresponded sporadically for about three weeks. Him complimenting her her responding despite a limited grasp of english july nineteenth on july order shifts boyfriend sensor another selfie she replied with one of her own then porter said you're gorgeous. Want war of me question mark and she texted a laugh and said yes order also laughed then send other selfie followed by a photo of himself on a bed with the bulge in the crotch area of pants after sending another selfie. He asked like she again. Texted a laugh and said yes adding. You're not married. He responded nope. Which picture do you like. The most wants to see more. This becomes obviously something where you're starting to realize this might not be a source and she kind of cuts off communication with him from the timeframe of july nineteenth to august tenth. He sends sixty two unanswered text messages including photos that get more explicit in nature and on august ninth he and the reporter went chicago. It wrigley field. I think i just saw your so beautiful. The reporter told espn she felt panicky and she hid to void him a day. Later porter's message. I'll be in la this weekend at the best hotel in america. Can you meet me there. That's evening porter texted. You're missing out next. He sent more than a dozen photos of hotel grounds food and a bathtub. Then a shot of pants with the bulge on a bed finally texted a shot of a fully naked and erect penis. And it really at this point in time becomes a point where it is crossing the line. She told espn. She got help composing her first reply to porter in weeks. This is extremely inappropriate very offensive and getting out of line. Could you please stop sending offensive photos or message. Puerto responded oh. I'm sorry i will stop. I really apologize. Please let me know if you ever need anything workwise and we need to reiterate that this reporter is not from the united states. She doesn't have a grasp of the english language and she needed to rely on an interpreter and players from her home country to really understand what was going on here. Yes she did. And she was in a position where jared porter all the power. He could have helped that journalists he could have given her all the scoops all the news. He could have made her into a big name. A big deal. She can't help him in any way at all minus obviously physically sexually. He's attracted to her. She told the espn that until then she thought it would be awkward to say no to porter's questions and that if she had a better understanding of the language and culture she would have realized sooner what was going on.

"The timing could not have been better for them like this is in the off season. You still have a month ago. Some of the other candidates that you might have considered last fall or still available or colleague League. ESPN and Wardrobe Peres available. Hensley Newly Lewis Row House right buck showalter would be someone and this is before the manager is in place. Can you imagine if this all spilled out say in mid April and the mets record was ten into how complicated that would all all be for the mets. And what a mess that would be so. I really like that That that would be an issue and the other thing too is that I remember when Carl was hired in again I people around the sport sport such regard for him but there was a lot of surprise at the mets. Didn't hire someone with more experience. After two years of Mickey callaway when Mickey's inexperience came to the forefront and in two thousand and twenty. It looks like the mets could have a really good team. Excellent rotation in the lineup is much more settled. Oh then it's been in recent years. Pete Alonso anchoring in the Middle Michael Conforto Jeff McNeil. I really feel like that Diaz would be the number one candidate for a bounce ounce back year they got Tana's this could be a really good team which is why last fall when Carlos was hired a lot of folks with other teams are like. Wow Wow you got to win now team. And you'RE GONNA put that in the hands of another rookie manager. That was a surprise and now they have an opportunity to do a do over and I actually feel I liked it in some respects. The timing worked out well for the mets they got very lucky as you mentioned at the beginning especially and obviously this is a lot to do with the MLB investigation Gatien to. I'm sure mlb you know went through this process very thoroughly but at the same time very aware that we are three weeks from training right so there isn't you know so I am sure sure the MLB also tried to be expeditious about this process and informing the clubs. What's GonNa Happen As soon enough so they have time and as you mentioned a lot of experienced experienced managers are there are still available. Do that Hensley. UELMEN would be a great hire because he has a lot of those qualities of Carlos Beltran being bilingual being able to. Oh you know cross you know kind of being very kind of like a great player manager that kind of guy and very well-spoken an excellent with the media so that would be But I wouldn't blame the mets for going with someone a lot of experience with a dusty Baker. Perhaps or a book show Walter. Perhaps and they'll be really interesting to see you. Were they go but definitely did they get lucky and helped out like the fact that the investigation got you know. The results of the investigation got announced This week absolutely. There's plenty of time. There's a a lot of work that Carlos was winning the last couple of months. I think almost the Boston Red Sox have a harder time and so the Houston Astros. They will have a hard time if they don't do you. And inside organization higher because those managers were there for a very long time without Carlos not having managed you know just having a couple of months of talking to players they can plug and play like you mentioned such a talented team and experienced. MLB manager the Houston Astros on the Boston. Red Sox are going to have some issues and just a follow up up on Hensley Mulas. It's interesting when I talk about a rookie manager that Carlos he would have been that. I don't really look at Hensley being rookie man. Because he's he's been in that Ed role before I know he hasn't been a big league manager but this is someone who has led teams in the past absolutely on. He has been as we know the right hand for Bruce Bocce for the hall of Famer Bruce Bochy such a long time. I actually wanted to heavily and I have a really good relationship but when it detects them and go hey Bam Bam you want to convince coach to come over to the mets uh-huh and you guys can do it again but So I think it's GonNa be interesting and you're right. He is one of those guys that the lack of experience almost nothing unfaithful. I feel the same way about. Joey's pot who's been in everyone You know everyone smelt like for a couple of years especially when he was you know assistant to Brian Cashman with the New York Yankees. Then moving on to third base coach moving on to bench goes with the Astros. I'm a little bit surprised that Jim Crane didn't goes straight and gave the job to Joy Sparta. OUGHTA but it's it's going to be interesting to see what happens from now on and buster. I mean it's amazing. How the mets did the beyond thinkable higher right? Not The likely likely higher with Carlos Beltran because it was such a good pr move and now look where we are now. I'm going to be a conspiracy theory that's based Panera. Liane speculation okay. If you're Brodie van wagon and you're looking at your managerial options. One way you could go and again. I have nothing to indicate this. The way that he he. He's thinking or the way that he would go. But maybe in the back of your mind you're thinking you know what I'll get a shorttimer like a manager I I know I probably would move on after one year because my old college roommate. Aj hinch is going to be available a year from now when he serves the suspension. What do you think like I have to say? I'm a fan of that. I think it does it as as long as it doesn't affect You know people like degrade Hensley Mule and I like. We don't want him to be. But I can see what you mean. It's like you're going to get this kind of this team. Prep Kinda reminds them of the northern Saint. bountygate take a little bit different because you you know he was there and that you spend squawk but he's one of those moments when you're like you know what could be a very good position Komo's looks like at one point. You know other some of these really young managers were really sought after and other teams quarterback who missed out of them. If at that time right nobody knew his thing to be that he was going to be at the essence forever. It's wrote that. Maybe he would get traded right. That was a big conspiracy theory for Hippie. Get traded for the match I can totally see that buster and I know you have basis except speculation but I like it all right. We got about five minutes left. I I WANNA ask you about Alex Cora and I you know I worked with Alex City. ESPN I considered to be a friend. And I told me and it comes under podcast when we taped on Wednesday that seeing. What's happening with Alex and look? He's absolutely responsible for the position that he's in right now with his actions but seeing him in this position makes me unbelievably sad for for him. You're concerned about he and his family and moving forward and that sort of thing but on top of that. Ah It reminded me of reading the way the players from the one thousand nine hundred one thousand nine hundred thousand talked about shoeless. Joe Jackson like they spoke vocal about him while he's with so wistfully about this guy was an unbelievable player. And this is one. Even ty Cobb said this one of the greatest players that he ever I saw but of course after he was banned from baseball after participating the black SOx scandal in the one thousand nine thousand nine world series. Baseball didn't have that great great talent again. I think Alex Cora is talented. A manager as I've ever seen and as they sit here today I don't know if he's going to manage in the big leagues again because as of how this played out. What do you think I think that Alex and as you know to for he is also a friend? It is a very sad day in general especially and I and like you said buster actions have consequences and we're adults and we have to assume the consequences of our actions and these are the consequences of the actions that all these people who have gotten in the fall out of the Houston Astros of white. They decided to do right. They did not measure what the possible consequences could be that being said it. It is a very sad day when someone that talented and what. I've heard from a lot of baseball people in the last couple of days. Who didn't need to do that? His level of talent is you know to that level. Good kind of you know the status of a mind like that and not only that always being label label. It's you're you're right I actually. I had the opportunity to speak at the MLB Rookie Cronin Florida. It's a lot of these young kids on the route redundant on the forty astor's and we talked about with like actions having consequences especially after the Brendan Tomlin's with rations and such before school out from the investigation education and all that I mentioned or the kindness and more talented players that I've ever met start hater and now on the word racist. I always. Yes hostage hater because of the actual and had because her man right has with. WHO's just way above that? It's the same thing that will happen to Alex. Cora the one cheater it's always the attached to him and that's what sad. It's very very sad day. We had. I'm not a quick her with. We got the winner meeting SPEC in San Diego there and one of the things was four forty managers Dave Martinez Parliament. Alex growing comes Beltran. This great moment of managers have a God because of their involvement in the Houston Astros Science dealing candle candle about missing diversity to and I think that's also very sad for Major League baseball right not having this talent and this diversity in a perfect world for a day like today. Yeah and I've thought about this too. Is that Boy There's so many smart people in that astros team from two thousand seventeen. Aj hinch incredibly. Bright Guy Alex on as I say unbelievably talented the players. You know experience smart guys like Carlos Carlos Beltran Brian. McCann Alex Bregman. Jose altuve a Carlos Correa on down the line and and I'm still surprised. Surprised that at some point somebody didn't step up and say guys we're risking a lot here like we're counting on this secret. Being held by fifty people in are traveling party. Maybe this isn't a good idea because I do feel like is is the Astros move forward. Every time they go into a visiting park. Those guys we're GonNa get an earful and you know what it's the truth what fans I gotta be angrily is going to be the truth and there are some guys and and I don't want to get into specific names but I feel like with some of the players. The brush off their their shoulder. Say Not a big deal other players on that team I think are we're going to be really hurt by that. Yes and at and buster you you also specify the fact that you know before and we and I said it to you know this is the result of their actions so whatever happens in opposing Paul Park and so wound up they deserve it and so long island. It's really unfortunate. It was something I think they didn't need to do. Why did they do it because they can? That's it because they could. That's what they do it because every team will go on on every team has like some way of science right. There's no some sort of elaborate scheme the way the astros have been found out to to have had.

"mets" Discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney

"We got the news about one o'clock today that yet. Another person untied to the Houston Astros. Cheating scandal has lost his job. Carlos Beltran recently hired by the mets to be there next managers out of his job before even having having a meeting in spring training. That's because he was named in. The Commissioner's report released the other day for his role in the Astros signed stealing scandal of two thousand seventeen eighteen Beltran and the mets both indicated. Today that this was a mutual decision but I suspect that a week or two weeks ago even those with knowledge of the science dealing details from two thousand in seventeen believed that Houston. GM Jeff Luneau Astros Manager Aj. Hinch Red Sox manager Alex Cora now Carlos Beltran would still have have their jobs and they're all out and that's where we are probably Vera covers baseball for ESPN. She knows. Carlos Beltran now score very well Marley. How you doing? It's been a crazy week. I think crazy is a very good adjective buster special like no that totally can managers. Were highly touted. I don't have a job today. Unbelievable let's let's start with Carlos Beltran. That is the the most recent news. I'm going to also ask you about Alex. Corsie is we go forward but but I about Carlos. I thought that when the mets didn't put out a statement immediately on Monday evening after the Commissioner's report came out out the fact that the mets didn't come out right away and have a statement from Jeff Wilpon from Brody Bandwagon. And saying this is our guy. Carlos Beltran is our manager edger. And that's what we're going to do moving forward because what was in the report involved the Houston Astros in two thousand seventeen. The commissioners made it clear that Carlos this is not going to be disciplined for his role in that because he's the player at that time but the fact that they didn't put out that statement on Monday and then dragged out into Tuesday day and then Wednesday. You could see that the mets they were weighing their options and just as someone who covered the mets back in one thousand nine hundred seven having worked in New York market for a long. I've never seen an organization that is more affected by public opinion than the mets. And I thought Yep that he at some point. They're going to let him go. What what did you think absolutely couldn't agree more with what you said? And not only that the fact that you know one of the reasons why they hired Beltran was because it was excellent in publicity. Ns S you. And I know spending so much time covering baseball in New York. The mets have failed many times on the PR department. And this would hiring hiring Carlos Beltran. They bought themselves all this goodwill right the return of the prodigal son with everything that had happened when he had left the comments of the Wilpon when he used to be a you know. Oh a mets player. Everything gets kind of water under the bridge. There's just you know one of the most impressive press conferences that I have attended you know at city field so it was just as big. Pr Moment and then all of a sudden I agree with you. They got swayed by public opinion. And one of the things that Carlos Beltran and as you mentioned before which is important you state. The aren't family our friends of mine. So my activity here Sometimes can be a little bit swayed but the point is that can handle the media. He's been you know he was a player for twenty a years worked on a capacity assistant with the Yankees and so on and I feel that this was in my opinion. Definitely a wilpon decision muster. Oh No no question. The way this was described I think Carlos but at a statement they talked about a mutual decision. No way like this like Carlos I think absolutely was set on going forward but they say as all the conversation was taking place in New York to columnists were were taking aim at this and they are asking questions. Well what. What did the mets ask Carlos about? After the first athletic story came out about the signed stealing. And how would the mets feel about Carlos not having credibility with the media and it became a real hot topic on talk radio here and one stat ball started rolling downhill and then Aj hinch losses job and Jeff Luna lost his job and Alex. Cora lost his job. There was no way the mets leadership was going to stand in the way of that momentum and stand up and say in the past it was in the past which by the way is what Brody van wagon and said back in November. He kind of indicated like well. That's not really a mets problem. That's an astros throws problem. But their their their words their tone definitely changes week the only aspect that I can you know Ah have gone in this process. One of the things were Carlos may have had some input. Devil's advocate here. Is that one of the things that Carlos Beltran they'll turn and and you and I have covered a great deal of is the fact that he does not like off. The field distractions buster. And I think at that is the part or they'll go. You know what this is the right decision. He is one of those guys that likes to talk baseball. I remember what it was like the whole scandal with Iran in the Yankees Yankees Carlos Beltran was part of the Yankees Organization at the time as a player and he refused to engage in sort of those conversations so there is an aspect of how much he doesn't like the distraction and then that part certainly you know he could have had any input on but I I agree with you. This isn't you know the mets founded selves in an island. Having to make a decision and they got swayed by Jim Crane did and obviously you know what the Boston Red Sox decided to do. After the imposition of a penalty suspension to Alex Score. So let's breakdown go by the way. Yeah exactly breakout some other elements of this What do you think the mets miss out on? Not Having Carlos Beltran altron their manager. Carlos Beltran is an excellent leader. And I think that's one of those things that has been a little bit missing the New York Mets Organization. He drives arrives you. He's one of those guys that inspires others other players and he also galvanizes clubhouses right. He he was the player for the day when he was with the Yankees. Hanky along with Andrew Miller he always has always been so well spoken and he crosses that kind of you know barrier quote Unquote Latino players. And you know the players that are not Latino and I felt that he could galvanize that clubhouse very very well and I think that's the number one thing that the mets are going to miss out on and this is a man who obviously has left the game for a long time doesn't need the money this isn't right and it was honestly doing this job because he truly wanted to make an impact in organization that really has lost their way a little bit in the last couple of years so I think it's a huge loss. So they mess. We're GONNA do not have Carlos Beltran but I do understand the decision. In terms of the whole quote in quote distractions off the field now. I'm not as close to him as you are if I was I think and he asked me my advice in this situation. Now that he's lost the job of the mets would. I think I would tell them was Carlos you need to hold a press conference in New York have rent out a room at a hotel or restaurant invite all the reporters to come and basically say I'm here to answer all your questions about what went on with Houston with me back in two thousand seventeen eighteen. Because I think that's the only way he's going to be able to manage at some point down the road and all I heard for the last decade is this is someone who absolutely terrific manager in the future future. He has to be great at this job but I think that would allow him to and let's face he's never going to move past this. It's already cost him his job but at least to get past those questions would be to tell the writers. I'm here to answer every question you people have about what take place and I'll tell you exactly really what happened. What do you think about that? I don't know that I mean I. I would love for that to happen. Let's be very clear. I don't know that the benefit for for Carlos it's worth it If if one of the drugs and he said this in an introductory press conference specifically said I didn't want any job I don't need need a job. I wanted to stay in New York. Carl has very very young children. They're all right like very yes. Three kids are all very young during school in your this is where they reside the kids go to school will. So there's only two baseball jobs that he would apply for the New York Yankees and the New York mets and he's not gonna get either one of those jobs so I just don't think that at this point point it benefits the family anyway and I do think that Carlos will do what's best for his family especially having young children Buster and I know you know that you had young children at one time. It's the point that these kids have to see the paper tomorrow. They're going to be in school. They're old enough. You know and I feel like it would rehash a lot of topics. Is that right now. Maybe people are going to move on you know and and just gone from that now if he later on when the kids are a little bit older he wants to do something else. Maybe at that point but but at this point I just don't see the benefit. Yeah I mean I would counter that by saying I remember what about the wondering to Rehab how he basically he put a statement saying look. I'm not only doing it for me. I'm doing it for the for my for my kids in other words I'm going to be show my kids that I'm going to be open and honest and I'm going to talk about you know what my situation relation is and I feel like that. That would be a good thing for calls just to be able to turn this page because otherwise you know every time he would show up at a ballpark as visitor. IRV Fiore was hanging out on a entered events. Someplace you know knuckleheads like me would come up and we'd all be asking okay. What really happened back in two thousand seventeen gene right? It's it's a very good counter counterpoint. Just think that at this point The Beltran family would be better served and also oh Carlos we there's been a lot of talk online and ever since the station happen of you know crossing the thin Blue Line right. What players are opening some sort of Pandora's box walks by having this conversation? I think that Carlos has that guy to who doesn't quote unquote throw other players. I don't I'm saying that that's not you know not that I agree with with that or not. I actually believe that whistle blowers are important and I admired my fires for standing up and doing what he did. So let's just be very clear but I just don't see Carlos being that guy guy he's always been very reserved very pro player right like a pro player and I think a press conference like that addressing detail of the Astros you know obvious assigned feeling investigation would not go. You know. Go against who. He is right the other day when this began to gather momentum and he began to look like the the mets would would let Beltran go. I saw some tweets out from some reporters terrific reporters saying this would be the most seen thing ever the Carlos Beltran will be let go is managed manager before he actually managed the game and I wrote a column on. ESPN DOT com today. where I I wrote that I feel like the mets actually got very lucky with the way this played out and to make this clear in knowing that the mets had made the decision that they were GonNa let Carlos go to me?.
