"Mike Reeves has more. Montgomery tosses 5 meetings to record the win in his St. Louis debut as the Cardinals down the Yankees one to nothing. The lefty picks up the victory against the team that dealt him away at the trade deadline. It definitely feels good Guys are playing such great baseball. I'm glad I could come in and kind of keep it going. St. Louis leads its division by one game over the brewers, who were 7.5 losers to the reds, though the Yankees have lost four in a row, outfielder Aaron judge says, now is not the time to panic. Still got a great ballclub. You know, we can't hang our hats on that and be moping around here that we lost you serious, you know? It's over with, you know, most important games the next one we got coming up. The twins stole the AL central by two games over the guardians following Minnesota 7 three win over the Blue Jays and Cleveland's four one victory against the Astros. The mets lead the NL east by 5 and a half games after taking a pair from the braves, 8 5 and 6 two. Max Scherzer struck at 11 and scattered four hits over 7 scoreless innings in the nightcap, but he says they still need to keep the pedal to the metal. It's great to win these games. Don't get me wrong. Yeah, you want to beat them as much as you can. But it's going to take that type of effort for the rest of the season. Braves manager Brian Snickers says they can't dwell on the double header loss. We want to get the series We're not. And if we get out of here with the wind tomorrow, then that's from where we are right now, the best possible outcome. The Phillies won for the 9th time in ten games by scoring 6 in the first inning of an 11 5 route of the nationals. Michael Ivanka was there. Philadelphia got a solo home run by Reese Hoskins, a three run Homer by Matt verley, and a two round triple by Bryson Scott

Trouble in the Writers' Room at 'Rescue 911'

"There's trouble on the set of rescue 9-1-1 and it's such a bullshit situation, but this is the state of Hollywood now. Who the hell wants to be in Hollywood with all this shit? So last April, station 19 8 O episode that was hailed as one of the most powerful reflections of George Floyd's murder on television. It was written by an executive producer showrunner named Christa vernoff and some other people on the show's writing stuff contributed as well. More than a year later, an incident involving the depiction of racism on the page has left the writing team of the show reeling. It's got nothing to do with the writers recent draft of an outline. It has to do with what they hand it in. On the upcoming season 6 episode that included numerous uses of a racial slur by a racist character right away the N word pops up, right? So I'm hearing the script was assigned to a white writer who can white people write what bothers blacks or Hispanics, I don't know, the word in question this white writer used was beaner. It's a word that they won't even write in articles and newspapers around they won't even write the R took me a while to figure out what the fuck they were talking about. Beaner. You know, Mexicans pick beans. Okay. Derogatory, I get it. If you're a Latino descent, meanwhile, it's a term that the comedian Carlos mencia who was half Mexican would use all the time in his act and on his Comedy Central show. Beaner. I'm not even worried saying that word. I can't stand saying the N word. I've used that word to make a point. I've used it if I'm talking about music that contains the word or a discussion that contains the word. There's no reason to say it now, so I won't. But if someone brings it up and a discussion, they're talking about it, then I'll talk about it this controversy. But Peter, it means nothing to me. Nothing. So the guy ends in the outline and it's met with shock. It's not with disbelief. When he shares it with the writers room,

"I dated mullin Brando's daughter for a year and a half or so. Two years, I think. Wonderful girl, Michelle. Michelle Brando. And I met her father through her. Very surreal. How are you doing? Nice to see you. Very strange. Matter of fact, one day Michelle and I are in a house. She didn't talk much to her dad. I had to tell her, Michelle, do you realize a lot of us came to Hollywood because of our fascination with your father, the greatest living actor of all time? She said, well, I don't remember him that way. I remember him as vacation on his island in the Pacific. Him and all his friends were getting high and drunk and crazy and they would tell me to find the rhinoceros in the shag rug. That's how messed up they were, so that's the guy I remember. I remember the guy who had his buddies take a crap and a mason jar, and then he would label it, close the jar and keep it in his shed outside. That's the Mullen Brando she remembers. There are parts of him we don't want to know. And now I can never forget.

Tied his season high with 11 strikeouts over 7 innings. Final score was 6 to two, Francisco Lindor had three hits and three RBIs and Pete Alonso had RBIs in both games. So the mets moved to 30 games over 500 on the year and they pad their lead over the braves in the national league east. Not so good for the Yankees though. They're struggles continue. They stop in St. Louis lose to the cardinals one zero and they had just two hits in the game. They are now on a four game losing streak. That is their longest of the season.

Jimbo or Jim, you and I have not been in the same room since probably Christmas 91. Well, we veered into very different kind of intellectual trenches. And digging ourselves deeper into them. So we can't see over the top. But it's still crazy to me because I mean, you've been on the program before by a Skype or whatever. But I met you when I was at yaddo in 1986. Yeah, originally, with Alan shoes, I think Alan, we were watching the 1986 World Series at my house. That's right. A tragic death series. That's exactly right. It wasn't tragic for mets fans. Right, not for them. But I was born in Queens a mile from Shea stadium. So it was not tragic for me. But the point is, that was 1986. I was 23. And I was at yaddo, which was a huge deal for me because obviously I want to be a literary writer and I got to go to yaddle where Cheever was so it meant so much to me. But I met this guy named Alan chews. And Alan says, now, how do you describe him? Alan Woods? Well, he was a big kind of bear of a guy. He was a book critic and a professor. And he had an NPR bookshelf. And he was a sweet fellow. Oh, yeah, very sweet. And he was very kind to me because he said, hey, you want to come with me? I know somebody who lives near here a writer named Jim kunstler. And so he drags me along the 23 year old version of me along with him to meet you.

Winning Big With Blake Masters

"Joining us right now is Blake masters who is now officially the nominee for the United States Senate race in Arizona, which will be the most consequential race period bar none in the entire cycle Blake. Congratulations. Welcome back to the program. Charlie, thank you so much. You called it yesterday. We did. Thank you. We did call it so Blake, how are you feeling? Talk a little bit about what you just accomplished, the journey you were on, and let's talk a little bit about Mark Kelly and how people can help you. Yeah, thank you. Feeling great, you know, we put in over a year of hard work. Like I must have met tens of thousands of Arizona voters and man, it was an honor and I had the time of my life and the great news is, you know, we don't have to stop. We just get to keep sprinting all the way through November 8th. Now it's just me and Mark Kelly and as you and I discussed, this Senate race is probably the most important country. And so it's going to be an honor and a privilege to expose Mark Kelly's left wing track record. And when I just tell the truth about him, they're lying about me already, of course. But when I just tell the truth about Mark Kelly and how he's just helped Biden accomplish all of this chaos and destruction, we're going to win this race. I love it. So Blake, you ran a phenomenal race just for everyone to understand Blake has never served in office before. He was significantly outspent by competitors. Other people had statewide elected office. And you ran a really honorable race Blake, honestly. You didn't get down in the gutter. You responded fire with fire if they attacked you directly, but you really kind of took the high road. Can you just talk a little bit about that? You were smeared and slandered. I endorsed you personally. I've known you for a long time. Turning point action did. But I was super motivated by some of the smears that came after you, but you just kept on with the high road. That was really interesting for me to see just talk a little bit about that. Yeah, thank you. And you know, I told my wife at the beginning of the race, I would not run negative attack ads. I don't believe in it. First of all, it's not my character. It's not what I think is a moral to do. But second, it doesn't work. People don't want that. People are tired of that madness. You know, things don't work right now in this country. We're going in the wrong direction. So why not use a candidacy an opportunity to talk about policy? And here's what's gone wrong. Here's what we need to do. Yes. And I've stayed focused on the issues talking about that wide open border, how we need to secure it, talking about the crazy Democrat inflation. Talking about the indoctrination in schools that the left is trying to push on our kids. And so we just stay laser focused on a positive message. Turns out people like that.

Sebastian Welcomes Dr. Ashley Lucas to the Show

"I've lost 34 36 pounds an hour already, my wife has lost over 25. And it's all thanks to doctor Ashley Lucas and I've invited her one on one. Doctor Lucas, welcome to America first. Thank you. Thanks, doctor gorka for having me. All right, so this isn't an extended promo. This is about you. This is about your life story. And just trying to talk some sense into this whole concept of being the right weight and how so many systems are stupid starvation systems or calorie counting and all that goth. So I found your story originally when we chatted fascinating. So tell us how you got into the industry and originally your struggle with the whole question of healthy weight and the right weight. Yeah, so I spent my first 25 years training at the classical ballet dancer. And I was chronically met with injury. I had stress fractures in my back and my feet. I was always under eating and over exercising to achieve this aesthetic that is demanded by ballet. Right, so you've got to be as light as a butterfly, but then able to dance around for hours on stage. This is the dichotomy. That's right. It's so tough. And I had a pretty successful career because I just constantly bought through it and danced through one injury after another. And the cumulation of my career, I found myself performing up in New York's every dancer's dream. But instead of finding myself up there in the spotlight, I found myself in the ER. I thought I was having a heart attack. I didn't know what was going on, but after a whole bunch of different tests, the physician said that I was simply underfed and over exercised and I just couldn't do it anymore. So then what happens? What was your big life decision? Tell us about the journey from there to where you are today. Well, I was devastated. Like any professional athlete, it was my identity. Didn't have any idea what I wanted to do, but I knew the significant impact nutrition or really lack thereof had on my own sport performance. So I went on and I studied exactly that. I earned my PhD in sports nutrition and chronic disease. And studied what happens to our metabolism when we chronically under eat when we die at all the time.

And then again in October 2020, which was, of course, the month that we at the New York Post broke the first story from Hunter Biden's abandoned laptop and October was also the time the month that tiny bubble linsky, the navy veteran and former business partner of Hunter Biden came forward publicly to say that Joe Biden was involved in his family's influence peddling scheme that Joe Biden was the big guy who was slated to get 10% of one of the Chinese deals and that Tony bubba linsky himself had met twice with Joe Biden to discuss these deals.

"When he's up with a plate. You know, given one of those squirrel hits. So we've talked leadership. We've talked hitting. Now let's talk chemistry. You recently wrote a story about backup outfielder Travis jankowski and a box of t-shirts. So what happened there? So Travis jankowski, I guess you would call him a major league journeyman at this point. He's on his fourth organization in four years, but he's kind of, I guess what you would call a glue guy. He plays the outfield. He plays all three positions. He's a backup player he's on the bench in about a few weeks into the season. He was talking about embracing that role of being a backup. And he had a great line about telling reporters that, you know, I know I'm the kind of guy. Nobody's going to buy my Jersey. You really have to check your ego with the door every day. No one's going to be buying my Jersey, you know, but I still think that there's a big part of what I bring to the table that is very important and very needed to winning teams and championship teams. Of course, mets fans being mets fans, it quickly sort of blew up in the sense of like, okay, this guy thinks we're not going to buy his Jersey. We're going to go out and buy his Jersey. The guys in the Clubhouse also heard that quote as well. And about two and a half weeks later, a box of t-shirts showed up in the mets Clubhouse, all Travis jankowski t-shirts with his name on them and his number. They were sort of delivered at a pregame hitting meeting by Eduardo Escobar. You know, buck showalter said, hey, it's more than just a T-shirt. I think it was sort of a message that like everybody in that Clubhouse matters. You know, Travis jankowski matters just as much as Max Scherzer to the Met's success and travesty Niko's. He said he was slightly embarrassed about it. I think he blushed a little bit. In the meeting when they gave the t-shirts out. Come on, I appreciate it. That was great, you know? It was definitely not needed. I didn't really want that. I was embarrassed when they ended in the outfit. It's very appreciated. You know, it's good to be in a Clubhouse where a role player gets. By the next day, all the mets wore them during their pregame warm ups and batting practice. And so everybody on the mets team for one day, at least was Travis jankowski.

Will Reston on Wednesday night the mets beat the Cardinals, but something happened that they did not want to see in the 6th inning with ace right hander, Max Scherzer. Without it's number one starter and Jacob the ground and without his replacement and title of McGill. Certainly Max Scherzer taking himself out of the game in the middle of an at bat has got to be a rather sickening feeling. When we now know that he's expected to miss 6 to 8 weeks with a strained oblique. So for anyone who hasn't been following this team closely, how significant is it for them to not have Scherzer for an extended period of time? Well, the mets are leased in an advantageous position where they've banked all these wins. They have this nice lead in the national league east. But it's a big blow for their pitching staff because they obviously Jacob B Graham is on the injured list. He's trying to get back potentially by late June or early July, Tyler McGill is out, and the rotation depth is really going to be tested over the next couple of months. Even Chris Bassett, who was also acquired in the off season from the Oakland a's, has talked about how much he's just loved working alongside Max Scherzer, who's intensity is sort of legendary. I mean, teammates will literally describe he's kind of psychotic out there when he's on the baseball field. And when you see that, I think, and when you're in that presence every day, I think it kind of causes everybody else to sort of up their game in terms of competitiveness. And it's just offers a little bit of that kind of classic mets fan doom situation where you're always expecting every injury to be worse. So it will offer just another obstacle in terms of getting over that kind of psychological issue that everyone seems to have around flushing. So speaking of pressure, how much of it is now on the offense that often set we talked about earlier with the team's two best pictures out, especially with a tough stretch of West Coast games coming up over the next few weeks. Yeah, I mean, the team responded instantly after Max Scherzer went out on Wednesday night and scored 11 runs against the Cardinals. They have depth in their lineup and that's been another strong suit of this team so far. But it is going to put a lot of pressure on the Pete Alonso's and the Jeff McNeil's in the Francisco Lindor's to produce. Well, finally, rest in last weekend, the mets lost a series to the Mariners, which was the first one that they've dropped all year. And after the fast start, they've basically been playing 500 baseball lately. So with last year's collapse, still fresh on the minds of fans and including me, as well as all these injuries, what's the vibe around this team right now? Are they concerned about the whole thing falling apart? I don't think the mets will ever say that they are concerned. The players that is, and what Steve Cohen did in the off season was to go out and basically add enough depth to the roster to where they can weather injuries like this. But I think this just shows how fragile things can be, especially the mets, you know, when you go out and sign free agents, those guys are on the other side of 30, you know, Max Scherzer is 37. So I think when there's an injury history with the mets and you always worry about some rash of injuries ruining a great season, I think this is something to watch going forward to see if they can stay healthy enough to hold off their.

"A completely different approach than the previous owners? Well, the first thing to say about Steve Cohen is not only a billionaire, he's one of the richest men in the country and in the world. And he has the money to go out and spend far beyond what other major league owners will, especially in a sport with no salary cap. So I think when he bought the team, they were sort of trying to move on from the will pon era, which was defined by sort of miserly owners and lots of unhappy fans in an interesting story about Steve Cohen is that he loves to collect art. Do you like talking more about markets or talking about art? Well, I always say that, you know, if I go out with somebody in business and they happen to be a collector, we spend the first 30 minutes on art. Then we get the bills. It's usually the way it works. And he has spent hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars on art pieces that he finds interesting or valuable. So if he's the kind of guy that is going to spend a $150 million on a sculpture, well, of course, he's going to spend $200 million on a great starting pitcher. You saw that a little bit the first season, they went out and signed Francisco Lindor, but when it didn't quite work out, they sort of doubled down this past off season and they went on a bit of a spending spree. Obviously capped by signing, you know, a future Hall of Fame starter and Max Scherzer. They went and gave him the largest contract in major league history by averaging annual value. And then they also went out and bought some other players, starling Marte, who have a former all star Mark Hanna, who has kind of been a valuable piece for the Oakland athletics and Eduardo Escobar who had been a useful player for a couple of franchises. And they also went out and traded for Chris Bassett and got him from the Oakland a's in part because they had the money to go get a guy who was salary was going to be increasing over the next few years. Well, continuing with this change of leadership theme, the mets also made a change at manager, firing Luis Rojas right after the season, then in December, they hired buck showalter. What was the reaction around baseball to this move? You know, buck showalter is a guy who is never quite gotten over the top at the various stops he's been. Obviously with the New York Yankees years ago, the Arizona Diamondbacks, then he had a successful stint with the Baltimore Orioles. He sort of won wherever he's gone and has sort of this reputation as a very professional, very cerebral, very smart manager, but it's never quite come together for him in the postseason. So I think there was a thought among mets fans that this was sort of the perfect fit in managing a Clubhouse like you would see in New York. One of his strongest qualities is his ability to kind of communicate with the media. And so sort of expressed a measure of calmness on a daily basis. I love having people that care and nobody cares more than mets fans about their team doing well. And I'm hoping our players will feed off of that. Well, he's also kind of a folksy person, right? He loves to tell stories. He loves to kind of keep things professional but light. You know, we play so many games, usually it's over 200 count in spring triangles to chuckle at a football coach. Said they weren't ready to play this week, really? Was that before or after you're off week? And I think whenever he goes someplace, you see sort of a honeymoon phase where people enjoy being around him and he offers sort of a combination of professionalism, but also a place where players enjoy playing. All right, well, the second thing we wanted to ask you about is hitting. Now the mets hired former MLB third baseman Eric Chavez, one of the stars of the Moneyball a's teams, as they're hitting coach in January. So can you tell us about the new approach that Chavez has brought to this team? Yeah, well, it's kind of multifaceted, right? So the mets last season fired hitting coach chili Davis, who had more of an old school approach. And they replaced him with an interim guy Hugh quat bomb, who was there the rest of the year, but it was sort of an erratic season at the plate for the mets. If you remember, there was a kind of a funny incident early in the year where Pete Alonso, the Met star first baseman sort of created this alter ego where he was named Donny Stevenson and he would show up to hitting meetings and sort of pretend to be the hitting approach coach. Trying to kind of loosen players up, we just made a nice nice new hire, Donnie. He's nice, he's a great hitting slash approach coach. Donnie has been great helping the team. I think we forgot to mention Donnie. Donnie really helped us today too. But it also happened right around the time that the mets fired chili Davis, and it seemed a little bit strange that Pete Alonso was creating this alter ego hitting coach right around the time the mets were struggling on offense and going to fire their hitting coach. Fast forward one year, they went out and hired Eric Chavez and they also sort of paired him with an assistant Jeremy Barnes, who's more of a kind of a forward thinking knows video and understands hitting analytics. So I think the mets kind of went out and tried to find sort of a happy medium where they have a hitting coach who sort of understands the analytical side of the trade and they have Eric Chavez, who has the experience and the players really, really enjoy talking to him, right? Because he's been in a major league hitter before and he can be sort of in any situation to communicate to the players to make them feel better to kind of be part hitting coach park therapist. We're going to use technology. We're going to use every asset that we possibly have to help these guys perform at the level we know they're capable of doing. But first and foremost, we know they're people. I think in any business that you're dealing with, you can connect with the person, I think you're going to see great strides and a great benefit from doing that. And to this point, the returns have been pretty promising. The mets offense is not the best in baseball, but it's been in the top half and that you've seen more of an emphasis on getting on base via the walk and you've seen more of an emphasis on just hitting the ball hard. So those are the kind of the two things that Eric Chavez is really emphasized is 95 as he says 95 beating in the exa velocity of the ball when it's hit or a walk. And it's a simple thing, but so far so good for the best hitters. Well, one of Eric Chavez's star pupils and the mets leading hitter as of this interview is met second baseman Jeff McNeil. Can you tell us about his approach in his impact? Well, Jeff McNeil is a throwback in the sense that he makes contact, right? And baseball in 2022, everybody strikes out a million times per season. Jeff McNeil does not strike out. He's one of the best in baseball at putting the ball in play, and he's one of the best in baseball at racking up hits. Showalter even said, it's not that simple, but sometimes Jeff McNeil makes it look that simple because he's a guy who hits it all over the field. It's like a point guard coming down in surveying the defense and decide he's going to deliver the ball sometimes. Like he's waving a magic wand at the plates, right? They call it bat to ball skills. He has maybe some of the best bat to ball skills in baseball. Well, we already heard a story about rat and McNeil is actually nicknamed squirrel for those who aren't mets fans. Can you tell us what the story behind that nickname is? And what is it with the mets and rodents? Yeah, well, it's interesting that the squirrel is the one who's constantly involved in these stories about the rat. The story, according to all accounts, goes back to his days at Long Beach state university. His college days, he actually earned that nickname. And it's simple enough and I think he's pretty good natured about this. He just kind of resembles a squirrel. It's like he's a little bit on the skinny side for a baseball player. He has this sort of style of hitting where he sprays it all around. He runs pretty well. He just has sort of squirrel like tendencies or a squirrel like demeanor. And so that came about in college, and they called him the flying squirrel, and it's sort of shortened to squirrel. DOM Smith, one of the Met's teammates is even on the record saying sometimes he'll tell Jeff McNeil.

"mets " Discussed on The Lead

"We're nearly one fourth of the way through the 2022 MLB season and after a devastating finish last year. One that had me losing a lot of sleep, by the way, one of the best teams in baseball so far this year has been the national league east leading New York mets. Out of sight of two run 5 into the second deck from penal Lonzo. And just by that, the mets walk off with a 7 to 6 win. Wow. Today, the athletics rustin Dodd tells us about some of the key factors that have powered the mets renaissance, including a box of t-shirts, a squirrel, and a big spending billionaire owner. So if he's the kind of guy that is going to spend a $150 million on a sculpture, well, of course he's going to spend $200 million on a great starting pitcher. That's going to be nothing for him. But with injuries mounting and memories still fresh from last year's collapse, are these good vibes built to last? From wondering I'm Tiffany oshinsky. It's Friday, may 20th, and this is the lead. Reston, welcome to the lead. Thank you for having me. I'm glad to be here. I'm excited to have you. Now rest in you used to cover the Kansas City Royals, and nowadays your main job at the athletic is writing features. But lately, you've been filling in covering the mets. What's it been like putting your beat right or helmet back on? Is it a little bit surreal? I love covering the mets actually because of their fans. There's no fan base in baseball, in my opinion, that mixes the passion of a small market team with the numbers and volume of a big market team. Like the mets do, like maybe the Phillies or the Red Sox or something. But the mets feel different in a way that very few fan bases feel. Well, I am one of those mets fans. And this season has already been really eventful in both good and bad ways. Now, along those lines, we've got some big injury news to get to on this episode with Max Scherzer, but we're going to start with the good stuff, the winning. So can you just give us a big picture snapshot of how good this team has been through its first 40 games? The mets were the first team in baseball to reach 20 victories, and I think they may be arguably had the best first month in baseball. Here's nimara third. Hill come into score on the mets take the lead. Unbelievable. And the mets with 7 runs in the 9th lead it 8 to 7. They've sort of cooled off a little bit the last week and a half, but they have been maybe one of the most complete teams in baseball. They're pitching is top 5 and runs aloud. In there, strike three call. A drop to change up on Owens two for his tenth strikeout of the night. What a finish to his first home start as a match for Max Scherzer. Their offense is top 12 in baseball and run scored. You have Alonzo attacks one and hits one out of sight. Oh man, Keith got a hold of one to the back of a lower deck for a three run shot. It's been a team that has been very impressive with their depth, right? So they went out in the off season and spent a lot of money, Steve Cohen, the owners, billions, he's put it to good use. They've really created a lot of depth in their lineup so they have this young core of players and they really kind of built in supplemented around them. You wrote about of all things, a rodent running onto the field during one of their games recently. And how this actually seemed to be a good omen. So can you help us relive that? Very interesting coincidence, I guess you would say, so last year at this time, right about early May, the mets were in first place, but it was a little bit of a mirage. They were just a few games over 500, and they were in first place, but you could kind of see the cracks in their team. And there was an incident at Citi Field where we've never quite gotten the full story, but Francisco Lindor, their star shortstop, got into a bit of an argument with Jeff McNeil, their second baseman, and it cost kind of an interesting image of the entire team almost rushing back towards the Clubhouse to see what was going on. As the mets came off the field, there was a bit of a commotion in the dugout and down the tunnel. We have no idea what happened, but obviously it drew the attention of everybody in that dugout. And then after the game, Francisco Lindor was asked about it, and he concocted this sort of fantastical story that they got into an argument because he saw a rat. And then he got into an argument he claimed with Jeff McNeil because Jeff McNeil said, no, that's not a rat. That's a raccoon. I don't know, I was like, hey, I never seen a new year rat. So we weren't down sprinting. I want to go see a New York rat, and he got mad at me. He's like, no, he's not a rap. It's a raccoon. I'm like, hell no, man. It's a damn rap. A very strange story because it was kind of tongue in cheek, but kind of not there was obviously some friction going on with the club at the time. And it sort of served as this, I guess, metaphor for Francisco Lindor's first season in New York. He never seemed like he was quite comfortable in his new surroundings with his big new contract. Fast forward almost one year later, I think it was not exactly the one year anniversary, but within a day or two, and a rat appeared in center field while Jeff McNeil was helping the mets win a game. Oh my goodness. You dirty rat. Shoe coming your way. So it was an interesting omen because then the mets went on at one and Jeff McNeil was asked about it after the game and he sort of slyly smiled and said yes, that was a rat. You see the rat out there? That was a rat. So the season has been fun with rats, but as you mentioned a minute ago, last season was a much different story in New York. So let's go back there again for some more context. Can you remind us how last year started and in particular how this team finished? Right, so last year the mets were in first place for most of the first half of the season and looked like they were going to return to the playoffs in part because Jacob degrom, their ace all world pitcher, had one of the best half seasons, maybe in baseball history, but there was just a little bit of issues in terms of the offense struggled quite a bit. They fired their hitting coach. There was all sorts of kind of dysfunction in the Clubhouse with certain chemistry issues. And they're just wasn't quite enough depth. And then in the second half of the season, Jacob de Grom was hurt, and once he went out all of the flaws kind of came to the surface, Metz faded down the stretch. The Atlanta Braves one that he national league east and obviously went on to win the World Series. And so it was very similar to a lot of recent summers with the mets where it felt like they had some talent, but maybe not quite enough, especially when Jacob de Grom was hurt. All right, so now getting into 2022, there are a lot of things that have gone into turning this team around, but we wanted to focus in on three key factors starting with the leadership. So let's start at the top with the owner, Steve Cohen. He's now in a second season as majority owner of the mets. So can you tell us about his impact on the team's bottom line, which appears to be.

"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.

"Guys were on. Both in the left side of the infield did ball. Ever get through the two of you you might you. I mean you might think not but we both come a long way. 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.

"With other teams as he probably will get a multi year deal with another team. And then you get a draft pick in return. 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. That's one of the year after year after year. So all right. Let's move on to another topic buster. You're in oakland last night. The interesting game last night the as take what the last two games of that series any big takeaways from what you saw with the yankees and the.

"Really not very good. So if you are steve cohen. What exactly where are you setting your pillars as we move forward that's why a lot of the conversations had with executives over the weekend with other teams were for. They're going to be some changes over with a bats. What do you think i'm with you. I think you know you mentioned louise. Row haas not that he created this situation but his inability to react as it was happening yesterday fair or not. That's a big strike against him on top of all the struggles this year. Once again the mets unable to keep their players healthy. How many years do we have to talk about. All the mets injuries year after year. After year noah syndergaard his rehab now he tested positive for covert and that gets pushed back. He can pitch. I'm gonna be our big story of the day you know so. It's unbelievable what what is going on. Here steve kerr and his reaction is to make jokey tweet about this. I don't know how to read and that why would say this yet. A jokey tweet then but you can bet that. He talked to sandy alderson earlier today that i bet you. That conversation wasn't so jokey and mentioned this before you know. Steve cohen brought sandy. Alderson back you know as an experienced leader. Is he going to be in this position next year. Along with the you know. Zach scott writings the interim gm.

I don't know if there's going to be a house cleaning per se with the front office. But i do think there's gonna be changes and really what it comes down to the most important Who holds the power in terms of the decision making You know he was brought in to help steve's case to be ushered through pass. The owners is a figure credibility among the owners. It was brought on board to be the president of the team and then he You know the mets tried to hire some experienced people. They reached out some the best and brightest people in the sport. Say hey come and run. Baseball ops in the experience guys all ran in the other direction. Which is how sandy landed on derek porter.

"In his agency representative preparing for free agency in the fall. Were throwing themselves in front of traffic last night. Like oh my god like you just burned bridge with one of the biggest spending teams in all of baseball You know there's no way that the mets after this incident would would sign him to a long term contract. And you got to believe that there'd be other offices that also will look at this and go wait a second judgment that bad we're going to bring in a guy. 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. More than steve cohen. More than happier bias francisco indoors in year one of this massive contract. Yeah that was. My thought is okay by as you can walk away from at the end of the year. He'll go somewhere else. He's not going to get that contract on top of this. He's not having a great year that lender with that deal. He's a met he's untradable. He's your face of your franchise basically now along with jacob gras. But that what do you do. Is there any chance. The mets even considered his blowing this whole thing apart.

"Can't it's mindboggling to me that you have You know the players only three players that we know of so far you know maybe there are other players who were doing the same thing But we've heard about Of course heavier bias. Because he was the guy out talking about it we heard about kevin pillar and we heard about francisco. Lynn door doing this.

Yeah i mean what does a point to. Is it a lack of leadership even if you know by and lindo nplr or whoever else was involved kind of conspired in the background to do this after the first time it happened during the game does nobody stepped forward and say guys. This is ridiculous. You cannot do this. Obviously nobody did because it happened more than once so to me. It just looks like a complete lack of leadership whether the manager and coaching staff or from within with the players themselves boy and the individual. You're you're right about that. And obviously today i mean sandy. Alderson saying he's holding a team meeting my goodness like everything coming out of that team meeting first off higher by as well zoom after sandy alderson does sandy will come out and say this is what we told the flares you're no longer allowed to do thumbs down you're not allowed to do gestures that were aimed at the fans and then heavier by is gonna come out because you know that.

"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..

"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. But there is so..

"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?.
