"All right sports. Talk seven ninety hour number. Three you've been waiting appreciate your heavy. Tmc here welcome in matt. How are you nick. Nick nick nick. I don't. I don't think nick is there any nick. Nicholas your mother is on the phone. The nick fall asleep. And he's got mic nick nick. Nick i on sonic doesn't wanna talk. That's okay stagefright. What do you think people do when they and they're not what do you think. Do people call in fall asleep pursued guy who called in to. I think matt thomas. Yesterday it was in the middle of a drive through order. One matt goddamn. Tom was hilarious. That has consistently had the worst phone callers for ten years my favorite. It's an awesome. My favorite we love you guys even if you're bat caller when they call in some of them and they put you on. Hold that could you hold on. Can you wait a second. Hold on number three. Oh i love our callers with those are the classic ones. Yeah hey sean you're on the air. Could you hold on a second. How coffee okay. we'll know. don't worry about us. We got you as nick there. Nick oh by the way there's a there's little other nugget that's come out on jayson castro. According to channel rome it's not a one year deal. It's actually a two year deal. There you go to nearby change that okay a nickel you there. Yeah yeah sorry about that is this. Is this the first time that that the texans management has ever been like taking the task like you know. I know it feels like when when the sean signs deal. You know. o'brien with the coach. And i guess you know that was playoffs. I guess they can win. Right this on contract. And then you know they. They fired bill In the meantime they. They traded hopkins. After the sean signed his contract there was traded hopkins was traded. He was traded in the with three years to go on the current contract that he had. But sean did not sign his his big monster deal traded shaan scientists monster deal under bill. O'brien gm watch this. Did he signed it. What was the exact month. Was it during the fall. Like september october. Is that what. It was the september or august when to shot side september september early in the season so questionable it went. So what are you asking. I guess it's just. I is this the first time to texas management and or an ownership you know has really been taking the top. Everybody's been complaining about them for the last ten years but actually having like their star player you know. Hey i want out. And i think you know when when andre johnson said that thing detection texans management kills careers or whatever he said. I mean i think the sean to seize like easterby. Still there i you know. Part of me thinks dishonest. Page himself in the corner other part is like dry right like nothing has changed around here. Unless the sean or people like sean you know is doing what he's doing and it just feel like nobody. You know the the texans have a two hundred million dollar chip. And i totally see them. Just giving that away all. I hope i'm wrong. Yeah nick. I'm with thanks for the call. You're right i i. There's part the sean hasn't painted himself in a corner yet. And here's why he hasn't come out and said i want traded now how deep corner it is is it is it. Ntr you paint yourself into a major corner or is an easy way out if you come out and say i want traded that it can be salvaged here. They don't know yet when you're that good a player people want you regardless so. He hasn't painted himself into corner yet. I think people are a little frustrated by not knowing where he stands other than hearing from others. And i get that. If you're a fan or a coach or the front office i get that. But also get where he's coming from and you're right nick of. Is it ever going to. If i if i stay here in my going to be stuck in is going to be the crap we're going to have to deal with whether it's the distrust. You may have you if you if you don't trust easterby if you don't like cal if they're not gonna make a commitment to winning are they gonna spend who they're going to get. Are they going to give away. My players are they not. What are they all those things that go with. It's obviously not the money because he got that so it's all the other stuff normally were fans would get a little mad at the well. How much money does a guy want. They go forward he does. He need forty five. That's we would say. Well he's got his money so this is obviously not about cash. This is about all the other stuff going on. So you're right and it's kind of both ways. I don't think i think put it this way. i think. The franchises painted themselves into a worse. Corner into sean has by not saying anything. And and who holds the cards while he's under contract and can you withstand holding out if you had to come to camp like this in a line in the sand and play or not play miss forty million dollars. That would be hard to do but the other side of it is then you get to the point that if he's disgruntled really is never going to show up. What are you going to get for him if you say well. We have to. Because he's not happy here and players are not gonna wanna come here or stay here. So that's that's part of the deal. Nick you hit both sides. But i'm on his side the frustration he feel and i am on the certain side where some fans and media fan. Just tell us. come out either. Validate you want out or say you want in. I think that there's nothing worse than being in that. That area of space that you don't your feet on the ground meaning us. Not that he has to answer us but kind of knowing what somebody says. Want something then. Let's find out how to fix it but obviously something needs fixed or we wouldn't be in this position talking about it. It'd be a non story. We'd say we got one of the great players in the league signed for five years and then we're good to go so that would be the issue cory. What's going on man how you doing corey. Yes sir you're on the air my friend all right. I got a three team. Trade scenario wonder run by all right before you say this. Do you want this to happen or not. But i i wouldn't mind it. Because i think it would set aside for future with the draft capital when everything and it would be between the texas carolina and the jets a three way as a three team. Trade ever happened in the nfl. Or i'm sure question. I don't know who would be but i'm sure it has. That seems like a baseball or nba thing for sure right more and more nba than anything. Right yeah more. I don't know. But i would imagine at some point. All right so go and give me your trade. So the jets would receive shawn watson returned carolina with the number two pick and the texans would receive carolina's number eight pick this year. The jets number twenty three pick this year. The jets first round here for next year. The second rounder from the jets this year in a second rounder for carolina. next year. which will give you two first rounders in two second rounders in the next two drafts. And you're gonna give me mccaffrey as well. Oh sorry and and sam darnold. We'll give you a package that you could flip for another draft pick. Eventually i don't think the carolina will give mccaffrey in this deal. Would you give a okay. You're the gm. Would you rather have mccaffrey or watson. Got watson go onto the jets. What would you rather have. Well i'd rather keep the sean. But if he's not happy to be here requested trade then you this year. You could pick up a quarterback with your eight take and pick up. Somebody like like you say you're going to want to twos sam darnold. Don't get the quarterback this year letting slip play out darnold and see if you're going to get an asset forum later or see if he can be better here under a new coach like eric b enemy to one zero to twos and.

"They game. That will probably or window. Sean all sean has to say the stay all into welsh took to get rid of all the talk. You're not getting traded if he wants to stay under contract but we want him happy if he comes on. I'm not going anywhere. This is my team. Then it'll be it'll be done but as long as nobody's has long as we don't know from him then this is going to be talked about here and across the country. I made the point before. And i'm frustrated with this part not just here though when i hear this. Yes playing defense in the nba hard. Why because you try to cover lebron james who's fast new bigger and stronger. Neil can get get to the rim. Okay i i. I understand that picks and people offensive to get all that that's white team score one hundred and eighteen hundred. That's why they score because the other guys get paid doing really good offense player. My frustration comes with. There's a lot of skill that goes into putting the ball in the basket. Yeah there's not. A lot of skill appears all the best athletes in the world. Play basketball. I'm not. I'm not diminishing that. I validate that no question. But if the matchups even i continue to hear about defensive and you why won't guys play defense. They feel like it's not rewarding enough. What will moving your go through the motions. But if i see the mentioned it's hard. And i have discussed this. If i see a guy who could do all those things with his handle at his feet man get his shot. Even use those things for defend. Yes that's my point. Yeah now i understand. Listen if you've got to put a six one on a mismatch on a pick and roll and you play switch defense and all of a sudden you get the low block and anthony davis scott. You drew you and your six to mismatch and unfortunate defensive in a switch and you drew the short straw. Okay i get. It doesn't mean you're still not going to do everything you can't keep them from putting the ball in the basket easily right. So yes. If i've never been to me. It seems that i played basketball throughout was recruited. My point is. I'm not just speaking from. I haven't on the court all you guys have played. High-school bet doesn't matter if you didn't play pro you know the effort it took high school or college or whatever level you played to me. There's no sport where it just requires effort more than taliban defense on a basketball court. Yes can you scheme. And if it's man and pick people in all yes a little more difficult to scheme against zone unless you have shooters rider big man you can get into creases in passing lanes. I know that. But i'm always so frustrated when here. We've got to have more defensive energy. I i've never understood it. I have gained thirty one thing. But it's like when you play a game and if you win one forty to one thirty eight you one. You'll take it but when you when you walk off the court archie like mike. I hit me for thirty eight. When does that frustration come in. I've never understood you would. I don't think it does in this in this generation. Really don't so valdez is it more. It's definitely more effort. Pay attention to detail than than talent on the team's got the i think this team once they get to full strength here now. They're going to be. They will like have a they're gonna grind on their defense because wallin deep good defenders. They care about it. Say it again they care about it saint wartime daycare mountain. Thank you that's like a team like this is going to have pulled. Listen to the effort defense. Like how. Yes and energy i i understand. Sometimes you're more tired just like you are when you get up in the morning or i am like i get it and it takes more effort and sometimes you just get the l. man. Would you go up against the best player in the world. Your garden harden or jaanus and. He's taking that big ass body down the low block and you're just it's one of those nights for listening you may have given all the energy defensively you got and you need some help and the dudes just having well an mvp night which has a lot of nights. Yeah but it still doesn't mean i can't the energy and play defense and i just and eric gordon is right and we hear this a lot from players and coaches when you're got you don't want spurns great offense side from great players. Great defense leads to transition points leads to some that. They've been really bad at times. This year. mean they're they're not and i think it takes chemistry to get out and transitions the dirt. Trade jesuit. Say they're trans -sition defense. This year overall has been horrible. And why and. I've always believed teams. Now this is a little different than the past teams right. There were three point. That little divvy i lived if they still the analytics. Good but if you're a three point shooting team you should never be bad at trinity. Damn right because why you got three dude. Standing out at the perimeter right get your ass back and play defense his. We're looking at box scores. Only thirty one three point. A ten plus died twenty less by now. It's it's nuts. That's my point year today that stevenson starting to add to put his stamp what they're trying to score points right. Yeah so and they were scoring points. But we don't have to score them exclusively from the right but in the pet. There's no there's no excuse. If you're and three point shooting team like gold saints you should be able to play transition consensus correct unless you're a five guys to the glass but you have a plan when you're a three point shooting team right so we will continue. I'm curious about you guys at only few high school your big college fan. Even if you're a coach listening seven one. Three two two five seven nine. We're we'll get to it again this hour. We're gonna talk. Richard sherman and to shawn watson. Next why do i say richard sherman. Well you'll hear why next but defense the again as mc validated what. I'm trying to get to. Is you care. Carrying on. Defense is far more important than talent in the nba. It just is and if you don't care you ain't gonna wind many. It's important defensive.

because they can't roll out the same cast of characters next year it's a Hey everything's gonna be fine don't worry we know it's not the case and I mentioned at shortstop and somebody wanted to know why I was not including Jose Iglesias in that particular conversation because in four hundred and twenty eight at bats Iglesias is hitting two ninety fours on base percentage is three twenty three and he's played well defensively one out there but my answer to that is he's making two point five million dollars is a free agent after this season and when you put up numbers like he's put up even if you wanted to do something preemptively to keep from here it's virtually impossible because it's his first crack in free agency and I go I see this is going to let it play out that's just the way it works now could the Reds make a run at him in free agency try and re Saddam well what else is out there what else is out there and what about Freddy Galvis in this conversation Freddy Galvis has been found money for them it's a short sample size it's only sixty five at bats here in Cincinnati but he's heading to ninety two is getting on base over thirty percent of the time again I think back to a year ago when there was a large and vocal group that wanted scooter genet signed to a multi year deal for years in excess of forty million dollars and I said wait a minute wait a minute don't need to do that for a midfielder and secondly do we really know all your scooter chat is worth that money we now know he was not as the giants just released scooter genet this week Iglesias is that a good year here but will he stay here Willie preemptively do a deal here before his his chance at free agency arrives in my answer to that is not probable not probable and all it's a big day in Major League

"michael brantley" Discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney
"And I expect that, they'd explore, you know, all those possibilities as they emerge, and probably the most intriguing possibility would be if the Astros are the team to make a deal with the Cleveland Indians for Trevor power because of all the history that you have there. Do you. I mean look we saw last year. Jeff did not shy away from adding Roberto as soon a- it at time when no other teams were willing to take them on. Would he actually think consider adding Trevor Bowers too much there? I don't know that can interesting one. You know, I think that at least consider it right? I mean he's back good of a picture, and actually Brent Strom. The actress pitching coach is known Bauer for a long time back from their days at the Texas baseball ranch. So be an interesting possibility if, if it was viable there might there might be too much there in the in the back of background. But I don't know that that's an interesting hypothetical. All right. Forty five seconds left eye earlier in the year when I was around the dodgers, it's clear that team has a big chip on a shoulder losing the World Series two thousand seventeen two thousand eighteen and there is a lot of motivation in that clubhouse. What's your sense of that with the Astros after they weren't able to go back to back last year? Yeah. I think even last year it was still there. You know, I think part of it is they, they have a bunch of guys who weren't on that twenty seven team who were core parts of this team like Garrett Cole and Michael Brantley those guys have never won World Series. So I think that, that helps kind of keep that fire going, and these and these players also just, you know, they they've felt that sensation. Once they, they wanna win again last year. I think it was the injuries just mounted on them, and they they their offense regressed they, they didn't have the same offense at that your before, but this year, especially if they add a another starter trade deadline, I think they seem they seem plenty hungry to get back there. Well, as you know, Jake is you get asked the same question. I do who do you root for. I always say roof for interesting stories, and the most interesting outcome at the trade deadline would be Trevor Bauer to the Astros. That's what I'm rooting for. I don't know about you. Thanks for doing this. Thanks buster. Are you a big guy fed up with clothes that don't fit? Here's a tip head to d- XL, anyone can make a bigger shirt, but DSL makes clothes that actually fit.

I'll go Saint Louis for the NFL. And I'll go the angels for the AL. Yeah. At pretty much is marquee value for four eight four seventy four seventy five and another guy another team. We talked about him though. But Andrew Miller too easily end up with the angels as well. Yeah. You'll Seattle somebody like that. Yes. Someone like that for around the margin, Texas, Texas is begging for a closer mean. Alexio Gonda isn't going to do it true. And but my mom Gonzalez is worth it. I think we agree on that one. Yeah. On resigned. I have one guy I really wanna head. And then after that it's kind of like a lot like there's a lot of like Charlie mourns out there. There's a lot of Lance lens out there. There's a lot of guys like that. Even like a so there's only two guys here that I really wanna hit that really scream out at me that are similar tomorrow and Gonzalez one's a hitter wants a pitcher one of them my differently. The hitter is Michael Brantley. You took the words right on my mouth. And then Nathan of and Nathan of all the is the pitcher. This is why I love you. So made of all these are gonna get four years sixty million four years sixty five million very similar to. Craig kimbrel. Yeah. His four teammate for five more innings, by the way. Yes. For five mornings. He either goes somewhere in the AL east, Boston and New York will sign him one of the two Texas. The angels the angels. Wouldn't overpay him. I don't think because they have other stupid ideas. Ranger by the way. Yeah. If they give them a boatload of money. Teams in the that could use them the soul the the front runners, obviously Boston where he just was New York is definitely front runner. I think some dark horses in that would be Seattle who would pay them. They could use them. The White Sox another guy I that they would love to have to kind of bridge the gap to kopech in for g Lido and those other guys to get ready in the National League for him. It's the least I think he goes to one of the east teams though, I think either goes Boston, New York or he goes, Atlanta, Washington silly that one of those five teams, I know it's not like a very good like idea that, but I can tell you is money's going to be around four sixty four seventy four for sixty and World Series of EP St. Pierce. Then we'll talk about Michael Brantley perfect World Series MVP Steve Pierce. This is wild to say it is very well. You know? You know, he'll end up on a contender. I think you could see him back in the Red Sox. I think you could easily see him back in the Red Sox. This is all when he thirteen they're not going to blow it up..

Felix Hernandez of Seattle Mariners to bullpen amid struggles
"Team that I'm just fascinated by right now as Seattle Mariners. They began a huge series of for them against the Astros on Thursday night. That's a weekend series for game set, and but coming into that, they had lost seven of their last nine Felix Hernandez is kind of pitching his way out of the rotation, which is such a bummer. 'cause they're finally kind of in the mix for Tober essentially, and he's just not really a productive part of that at all. What do you make the Mariners here moving forward? They'll get Robertson Cano back soon. But boy, they gotta start kicking into gear here because the as just blown right by them. Well, if the as wins keep winning every night the, they don't have to worry about it. But. We're gonna find out soon. I would think they play the Astros seven times in the next fourteen days six times than thirteen days they they have sixteen game stretch. Now they've just started against Astros as the dodgers Diamondbacks. So you find out the pitching has just not been good, James Paxton back from the DL that gives them that gives them a chance to win every night. But like you said, king Felix is just not the game Felix of all Mark Marco Gonzalez been roughed up a couple of time. Bottom line is pitching terrible in even if canot comes back and just hits the ground running, that'll help them. Certainly that'll help them. But you know, you're look at that Oakland rotation. If you just match them up side by side, the names you'd say probably a rub, but Brad Anderson's been fabulous. Chris Bassett's been good for the as in Jackson's, found new life. So right now it looks like Oakland's going to the playoffs in Seattle's, not, but you know, it's all right there in front of. Them and I'm sure that's what's got service in staff is preaching
