What's the next step for MLB?

"Little did I. Know The when I joined Kaiser Permanente that it would be on my top ten list for what has made this year. Great I can see my physician I can be referred to the lab I can be referred to the pharmacy on same building. You got it all I mean it's. It's quality of care. It's compassionate care. It's convenience of gear instrument. Every medical cases unique panties now fundamental antics states to one Easter Russell Maryland two, zero, eight, five to. boomer and Geo on the fan and CBS sports, network. All right here we go into Tuesday morning six o'clock. BOOMER and Geo Program go on vacation enjoying these shores of fire island. I hope those sharks circling where he is I. Don't know if that's Lido beach or wherever that is, and they're closing beaches, but he is on vacation. Relaxing with his speed up on Ceelo is doing the same. He's on vacation, but he is at. The shore will see him later. boomer looks fantastic today in his study as he gets set to do the show. The mets looked okay last night. Put up a bunch of runs. Pitching not great, although set Lugo pretty good yogis didn't play. We hope they do today and a hurricane is barreling down. Hawaii other than that. It's a random. Tuesday boomer, size and Sir. How are you good morning? Jerry thanks and a random Tuesday, as we wake up this morning as we have breaking news yesterday about the Marlins, and now we have had that what I guess. I'd say about twenty hours worth of reaction to what has gone on down in Philadelphia with the Marlins and everything else. You know it's interesting. The different takes from all over the landscape from David price and Dave Martinez to a doctor. Andrew Morris who's a professor, a professor of infectious disease at the University of Toronto to Rob Man to the overall media. Dismay about all of this I mean look. We're in the middle of a pandemic, a virus and I would think that you would all assume something like this was going to happen. I think this is what we talked about, and how Major League Baseball will react to it. I'm not saying that Rob Manfred is right or wrong I don't think that he's flipping about any of this. But then again if there's anybody out there, who is you know? The Sky is falling chicken little the whole thing. They're going to jump all over this and I think David Price is one of those people and even Martinez. You know the manager of the nationals who had a heart procedure last year. Here's what I would say. The Dave Martinez. He should not be in uniform. He should if he is scared and his his level of becoming scared one from NATO twelve, then he should not be in uniform in the east should not be there if he feels, he has vulnerable and worried about contracting covid nineteen. As far as Dr Andrew Morris up at the University of Toronto, he just basically said look the marlins. Outbreak is not a surprise because he felt that major league. Baseball's plan was flawed in the first place. He said baseball is now. This is his words, not mine. Baseball's huge huge trouble more said it makes. Him wonder whether or not they are listening to the advice of experts whether they're experts are giving them good advice. This was not a plan. Anyone who knows what they are talking about would have conceived. It's playing out like it's supposed to play out all right. It's one team right now. It's one team that had a major outbreak, and by the way the game should have never been played on Sunday Miguel. Row Haas and a group of players on a group text message decided you know what? We have a couple of guys that have tested positive were. We're still going to go play because that's what we do, we go and play now I know baseball has put out a hundred and thirteen to one hundred seventeen page booklet on the protocols of Major League. Baseball if a guy does become positive jerry. I promise you less than two percent of the players read ten pages. Let alone one hundred and thirteen pages of what protocol is and Somehow Miguel. Ross became the arbiter of whether or not this game was going to be played, and that means that Don. Mattingly Derek jeter are in way over their head. They're baseball people. They worry about baseball. They don't worry about viruses and protocols and all that other crap. No matter how many times put the crap in front of them. They're just not gonna read it and I think that there was a serious lack of leadership on the part of the Marlins to allow their players to determine whether or not they were going to play. You know it's. It's just not that simple, but then what's the number? Well where you play? Don't play because to me three or four guys that test positive. That's going to happen. I don't WanNa say routinely, but I expect that to happen, but they also had test pending, and here's the thing. Somebody from the Marlins is got a call. Major League Baseball and said look. We got four guys testing positive and we have. Have other tests pending. We don't know what those tests are yet. They haven't come back so Major League Baseball then tells the Marlins look. You're not playing and tells the Philly and tells the phillies. You're not playing. Go home. Get OUTTA. there. Quarantine the you know the guys that are the equipment guys and the other guys that support the baseball team and all that other stuff there at Philadelphia Stadium. But the fact, the fact that it was a couple of text messages that went through a couple of the players that said that they, of course they WANNA play now. Meanwhile you have David Price screaming and yelling that. Major League Baseball doesn't care about the players. David price got to realize that his union okay'd off this that they sat down and went through all of the protocols and David. If your players aren't reading, the protocols, don't know what the protocols are and are making their own decisions. Go out there and play while not. Discussing this with Major League Baseball, whose frigging fault is it? Who's who is the problem here? The problem is the players now who knows where the players went? We all have been making fun over the last weekend. About how social distancing rules don't seem to be. Followed in the dugouts after big moments you know home runs. Right hits are be is a Lotta hugging his a lot of high five, and now it's hard to change those habits in the middle of a pandemic, especially when these guys have been playing baseball, the certain a certain way for as long as they've been playing so yeah, is it risky one hundred? Hundred percent it is, and everybody knows that it is and everybody knows that there's a potential for an outbreak on every team. That's why they have the taxi squads because everybody is expecting that there is going to be a number of players that are going to come down sick. Now I think and I've said this since since March so I'm not changing. The way I feel about this. This thing will not be shut down unless there is what I would consider a major outbreak now some people would say fourteen players between fourteen marlins between players and coaches is a major outbreak. I wouldn't say that I would say that as a major outbreak for one team. It's not a major outbreak for baseball, but if somebody like Dave, Martinez does die from covid nineteen. Because of what heart ailment he had and the surgery he went through last year. Then, we're going to have an issue and then I. Think Somebody's GonNa you know. The media will just come down hard on. Rob Manford and say look. We can't be planned because you know all life is way much. Too Important. Compared to sport and that's what I think. It's going to end up taking as long as these players keep coming through this and. Dealing with the the COVID nineteen and dealing with the symptoms of the Covid, nineteen, and not having to go to the hospital, not having to be put on ventilators, and not passing away. I think they're going to continue to fight through this and. This is also kind of like a Petri Test Tube. If you will for for for football, that's getting ready to get started now in a way. I think football's got more problems, but that's in a second 'cause. You said a lot there number one. The problem with all of this, and this is something we've discussed for weeks and weeks whether you WanNa talk about protesting coverted politics, whatever the case may be I don't know what's real and what's not real. I don't know what's true and what's not true. Different doctors have different opinions. You're telling me about certain doctors that say this is only going to get worse before it gets better I'm reading doctors that say baseball has the proper protocols. This was bound to happen. They know what's going. To what's going to go on going forward? Everything will be fine. You got some doctors and health professionals in the middle. Saying not so sure we're kind of wait and see. Tomorrow could be different than today so I don't know, let's again. I don't know. What I'm reading on a daily while. Doctors go to work in the middle of sure. Absolutely those doctors get paid, and all those doctors and and you know are are out there doing their thing I just again. You have to balance all of this with with the greater good of society. One is wear masks. Do the best you can and try to keep yourself as safe as you possibly can be personally responsible that that's a good way to start i. don't know if these players for the Marlins were. Were personally responsible. Did they get on an airplane and catch it on the airplane? Did they go out to dinner where they doing things away from the ballpark when they shouldn't have been doing, it should have been in their hotel room. Did they catch at the hotel? You know. Did they? Catch it in a cab or a bus? Going to the hotel right? I'm sure all of that stuff is being investigated right now by the contact tracers tracers, but I just again. The the amount of like the avalanche I would say a reading all the. Pundits, and the media types and oh. My God baseball is not going to be able to finish. Let I understand that it's it's startling. There's no question about it. What's more startling to me? Through this whole thing how the marlins handled this and how Atagy Don Mattingly and Derek jeter. It's your team. You have four tested positive, and you have a number of tests pending. You have to tell Major League Baseball Major League Baseball then goes towards protocol book, and says you know what you guys are not playing the phillies on Sunday yet. The players had a text group message. That started with I. Guess the leader in the Clubhouse I think as Miguel Rojo's. A shortstop for them. Has Basically, said you know. We're GONNA play. You know why because we're athletes. This is what we do, and this is what we know and understand the athlete mentality I I always say we are our own worst enemies. We will put ourselves in harm's way. At least most of us would when it comes to stuff like this or injuries, especially, if we're a symptomatic and we don't even know that were a carrier or have it, and that brings me to my next point, if you are a national player and you wake up. Up this morning, and you read your manager saying what he said your ass better be following protocols, and you better not be putting your manager in a bad spot. As far as David prices concern you know I I, don't want to hear I. Don't want to hear it you it out. That's fine. You had every right to opt out to take cheap shots at Major League Baseball when your union agreed to all this when you're union was fighting for your money and you got paid I don't WanNa hear about it. I really don't. Sour grapes. And you know as far as in the fact that he is like the headline and a lot of these stories is simply because he's an agitator, right? He's making noise right and he's going against the grain. I guess is why you would put him out there. Front and senators same thing Dave Martinez, not going against the grain. He's just telling you the truth. How feels but I if I were the owners of the Washington nationals? Bingo I read that last night just won a world series. Stay. Home is right exactly. Are. The owners get him out of uniform. Get him out of there if he is if he honestly feels the way that he feels, he should not be in uniform, and you should not be around any of this because he falls into the vulnerable category Yep and we've all said the same thing. The vulnerable category has got to protect itself, and we have to protect them and right now I would say that David. Martinez, while trying to protect themselves with a mask and I'm sure washing his hands and doing all the things that the CDC is telling us to do. I would think that you know. He wakes up this morning thinking twice about putting that uniform on again I don't think he should think twice. Think ownership should just take off at this point and say go home the same way. I Guess Chili Davis either made the decision or the mets told him not so sure what he's doing or what he'll do going forward I would tell David Martinez. Stay home, the other thing that you hit on there, which is really puzzling to me and I I did not realize this. You're telling me that. Major League Baseball doesn't have a representative overseeing these tests. They. Don't know about what's going on, then. They can't make a decision and as I have read everything about this situation. With the Miami Marlins it was at the players decided to play knowing that there were tests pending part of me. I Listen Party understands that because I think you're going to have tests pending every single day I? Mean these guys are getting tested walking every day I. Believe they are, but I know for hockey they were. And I think a hockey player felt very comfortable about doing what they were doing. They would go to. Go practice at their facilities. Young as we go to Eisenhower north well. And after they were done, they would shower they grabbing of food that was made for them by their Schefter, and they would come home i. my point is is even with tests pending. If a couple of guys to three in this case for every time, a couple of guys test positive. You're always going to have test pending if they're testing every day, we just postponed games every day. That's a couple of guys. I! Run, into when you, when you read about the circumstances around this particular situation, the game should not have been played on Sunday and it shouldn't have been decided by the players as whether or not. They wanted to put themselves out there because it's not just them putting themselves out there. They put the UMPIRES at wrist. They put the money at risk. They put the Phillies clubhouse personnel at risk. They put everybody at risk families at risk. And again you know it's like i. we live in such a diverse country with three hundred and fifty million population, who maybe maybe four hundred who knows, but we live in such a diverse country, and everybody is going to do things differently I last night during the game, they they obviously want to South Korea the baseball correspondent, who works for the mets and everything and he was talking about how South Korean baseball is allowing. Allowing ten percent of the fans back in the stand, yeah, well, it's much easier when you have a much smaller population where ninety percent of it is homogeneous, and they listen, and they pay attention to what the government is saying and they all Kinda follow like sheep in this country. That's not the case we're in the midst of a pandemic were midst of protests and riots were in the midst of a presidential election. We have personalities all over the place. Everybody wants to do what they want to do. Their certain people that are upset that they have to wear a mask. Other people are demanding that everybody where mask I mean. That's the country we live in, and that's why it's hard for us to really get a handle on this. Because we have governors that are doing things differently. We have dumb ass. Mayor's doing things differently. We have people that are in charge. Charge, making decisions that in one place, work and another place don't work because of our population and our diversity, so it's easier for smaller countries with more of a homogeneous. I believe population to handle these things, and that's why looking at those countries, and then comparing them to what we're doing here is it's impossible exercise because of the amount of things that are going on here and what we find ourselves in the middle of I. Mean this this is. This whole kind of perfect storm that is coming together. you know leads people to a lot of frayed. And there's a lot of like. Negativity out there and pessimism when it comes to things like this especially for those who it's easy to. I guess it's easy to say you know they should have never played. It should have never played well. I haven't seen anybody die yet. I've seen players. Come through this. I see Freddy Freeman. Supposedly maybe had the worst situation where he said he had never been that hot before you had one hundred and four fever, but then again I see him playing against the mets and playing great, so he came through it and I think the idea. Is that most young healthy people? If not all young healthy people, especially, athletes will be able to come through this as far as managers umpires older. Older people around the game. That's a whole nother story. Yeah, and then that leads you to which will discuss throughout the morning. Lead you to the starting the start of teams reporting to training camps around the NFL and are those safety protocols good. Are They not good everything we've read is sprite better than anywhere. You'll be, but it's one thing to be in the facility. It's another thing to get on the field and then what happens when to? Leave the facility one hundred percent, and that's and therein lies the difference. Between Baseball and football, and hockey and basketball are doing. The numbers for hockey are outstanding. They announced yesterday zero positive tests from the week of the fifteenth twenty-third thing of those dates might be a little off, but that's essentially what it was, and they're now out in Canada and you feel really really confident they they're going to start and stop or other starting finish and have very little problems. The NBA's been a good situation to aside from a couple of people like Zion Williamson having to leave. Though he's back now. These practice tomorrow the Lou Williams Situation Five but Allah. Allah quarantine the other guys on the court. They've had no issues. And you really see the difference when you can keep an eye on guys as opposed to not and I know why they didn't do the whole bubble scenario. The players didn't want it, but the one thing I think we might learn from this is that might be the only way to get through a season without any issue where we have a long way to go, because it hasn't happened yet, but it does seem like we're on that path for those two sports baseball, three or four days in now we have a lot of questions and certainly a lot of questions for football. But we're just getting started and we'll say so. It's a it's a bizarre time. We know it I am watching the Korean baseball that you talk about right now. They're booms and I see they have the tend to whatever ten percent capacity. It looks weird because it looks like dots like four dots a line and then there. Fans. WanNa, be there. They're on the way and I'll tell you I said this to warm show between five and six I'd go in a case like this like I, would back at the park if I could sit there and all section to myself I didn't do it. Why not absolutely so? We're just getting started boomer shot out of a cannon today, and rightly so because there's a lot going on Yankees are right now scheduled to play the phillies tonight. Hopefully, that does happen the mets winning last night. At Boston we will get you all the details and all the sounds of Monday night from Chris, Lopresti after this.

GSMC Baseball Podcast Episode 321: The LDS

"The. Golden State concepts, baseball podcasts, we cover everything majorly from sprint tree Susan. Got Your favorite club cover from new. York to Boston to La Vix is the golden state media concepts baseball podcast. uh-huh. Thank you all for tuning into GMC baseball podcast brought to you by the GMC PODCAST network I. Am Your Host Evan Wurley. So it is Thurs Day for me so. You know what that means. It is four games. Four clinching games. On, the docket for us. Going on right now. The parades are currently up. Seven near seventy and nothing. In the think it's fifth inning on I. got the game up right now it is bottom five. There were up seven zero. flyable. Oh, lazy fly to Centerfield cow is absolutely putting it way more work. Than I expected him to the braves are loose. Ronald. The KUNIA is celebrating. Like in the middle of the game he's like. Dancing near the dugouts and everything like that he is. Ecstatic the braves are looking smooth. I mean. It's only been four pitches and they have two outs in the bottom of the fifth. So it looks like. This unless there is an absolute shocking turn of events. The braves. Or moving on. To The for the first time. Since Two Thousand One, I think that's what it is I. Think we haven't got out of the NODX since two thousand one so. That's looking pretty good. This series has been incredible especially for all braves fans. You know the bullpen has been absolutely outstanding. I don't think the bullpen is giving up a single run This entire series or this entire postseason Ian Anderson came in a game to game to was definitely the game where I was the most nervous You know game one, we had Max freed going I did not think that you know Max freed was going to. You know. Give up the runs that he did. But I knew that we could battle as long as we get to our bullpen are bullpen is far superior to their bullpen So I wasn't really worried about any of that but Ian Anderson came in and had a hell of a day You know he? He's really been. He's really been the rock that we needed for Atlanta You know he's Just. Absolutely been dominant and do expect a rookie. You'd never expect a rookie to come in and just absolutely. Be just. Borderline flawless in the postseason but he is. He's had snicker He put them through over four hundred innings and AAA So, I think that. Dot. Got Him into A. You know into a groove and really got him confident because apparently his best pitch hands down is his changeup and apparently he didn't even have the changeover when he was coming out of high school. So they left him in AAA for so long over four hundred innings, the work so he could. Develop his changeup and get so confident with it that he could have a seamless transition to the league in paid off. Like it is flawless. He's done. No wrong. He's pitched eleven and two thirds innings seventeen case yesterday he had eight KS walk in five and two thirds innings in you know with the. Game against the Cincinnati reds six innings. He had nine strikeouts like maybe two walks and a couple hits like nothing I don't. He hasn't even given a run. Hasn't given up a single run in the postseason. And you know if we have Max free doing Max free things that we have Ian, Anderson pitching the way that he's pitching. Then then if cow right can just throw in a competent game like he's doing right now like he's not doing too much. He's not being to stellar. Moments where it was like. You know when it was like. Pretty crazy. Late, he had a couple like bases loaded moments in the game, but it wasn't like you know he was punching everybody album not missing over the plate like people are hitting hard balls often, but they're just not scoring runs. And that's all you really got to do is not punching anybody. Yeah. He's just not walking just don't walk people have them beat you he's making the Marlins beat him and they're not. At. It's just it's amazing to see the fact that we've had. So much like. You know so much happen to the pitching staff and just go into the bullpen or go into postseason and we are just. Dominating. We're one of the only teams who had shutouts three of their first four postseason games. And if this game keeps going, we're GONNA have shutouts in four of our first five. against. A reds team that if you listen to other baseball PODCASTS, I'M NOT GONNA mention their names here. No free ads but you know they had Scott Boris on. And Scott Boras the super agent was saying that the reds were his team to make it to the world series. You know people were saying before even I did before the postseason started the reds were my team. I was like you know the braves they've struggled all the time. I'm going to go the Cincinnati reds and we dominated the reds. He's been able to figure out the MARLINS and the postseason they've been to the postseason three times and they've never lost postseason series. This season is about to be the first one. You know It's absolutely nuts. The progression of Danby Swanson has been. Incredible like Danby went from someone who you didn't really look at someone who could be to someone who is driving the ball out of the park like nobody's business like, yeah he was drafted in one pick of front of Alex Bregman and Alex Bregman in the probably the same amount of time has become an MVP candidate and you know dance Swanson. Hasn't. But Right, now, at this point, I would rather have be than Alex Bregman, and especially since we know the numbers were inflated, do you know all the cheating and everything that was going on in the Houston Astros Organization so You know Danby has absolutely kills two homers in this series. Already, he hasn't hit one day, but he's been in on a couple big plays Travis Day or no has been huge for the braves. This season Marcelo's Zona has absolutely killed it forum like Swanson Darren Oh both homered on the second straight day yesterday. So they homered in the first game and the second game, and then Travis Day are not day hit one opposite field off the wall which I. Honestly it was probably about maybe five six feet higher. It was another homer and three straight games like. Drivers Day Arno is should be should have been our everyday catcher I. Don't know why we're applying tyler flowers, but it was nuts absolutely nuts that were doing that Freddy Freeman has kind of the monkey off his back with Marcelo? SUNA. Because with those Zuma in the lineup. It takes a lot of pressure off of Freddy. Freeman. Freeman the number two whole. You know it's not him versus everybody to try and get you know to try and driving all the runs You know with. Dr. No and ozone behind him. He knows that I can just move if if my job is to move runners over instead of deriving in everywhere trying to get it out of the ballpark because if we don't get one hundred RBI enemy then we're probably not gonNA? Succeed. It you know it makes it a lot easier for them and the monkeys off his back. He's colleges lacing baseballs all over the field, his spray charts nuts in the number two whole. I. Love Freddy. Freeman is a number two hitter. Can we keep it this way can we re signed traffic? There are no can we re sign Marcello? Can we run this back for another season afterwards to matter what happens because it looks like the dodgers are going to be a freight train that cannot be stopped I would love this year pitching against the dodgers because are both ends just been absolutely stellar But we'll get to that in a second so. Moving onto this. Moving on to a separate part. Let's move onto a bullpen. So Darren O'Day nickname tyler. Matt. Matt. The death star because he's been the secret weapon that comes out of the bullpen and just kills everything You know our bullpen has been incredible They threw three and a third scoreless innings yesterday in a two zero victory over the Marlins in game two. let's Atlanta's bullpen has had a zero point, five, two Yari, and seventeen and a third innings four postseason games. Seventeen and a third innings, and we've given up a zero point five, two era. Allowing, only eight hits one run four walks and we're striking out twenty four batters. Unbelievable Going from last year where or bullpen was all right. Let's see how far. Luke Jackson could take us. To coming into this year where we have will Smith you got Darren O'Day Tyler Matt Sick you up Mark Melanson closing the Games out. There's something about Mark Melanson that even though I'm a braves fan, I still hate. Whenever he comes on the mound. I just don't understand what it is, but I don't like him. Tell you why I just don't. You know both that's beside the point you know we have so many different options. To A, you know to to get out of a jam with so many different bullpen pitchers that if we need that if we even need a bullpen day like if the you know Max freed has a bad day and we need the bullpen to come in and have a kind of a bullpen day you know vn Anderson finally has a hiccup and you know we need a bullpen day out of. You know instead of him. Going the distance for us you know Carl Right. Is. Probably, our best candidate where we're GONNA need a bullpen day. We can do. We if all three of them have stellar starts and we need to open her. We can do that too. It's absolutely nuts the fact that the brace have this at their disposal and you know. The the MARLINS aren't. A bad team. You know what? I'm talking about the braves a lot because I'm a braves fan I'm excited because I've never seen him win a series because I mean to be fair I only started like my first game I ever really sat down to watch all the way through was game six of the two thousand, one world series famously. Famously, known as the game where Derek jeter became Mr October Mr November. You know what I'm saying I don't think that was game six, it was either game six, game five All knows the game were Derek jeter became Mr November. I that was the first baseball game ever watched. 'cause I thought it was on Halloween obviously and I thought trick or treating was lame even when I was a kid and I was like dad this sucks can we go home and watch the game and he was like, yeah, might as well. So we went home watch the game turning on the clock struck midnight Derek Jeeter shot that ball the right field and there he goes You know that didn't really turn me into a Yankee fan or everything You know I fall I like Derek jeter's one of my favorites but you know it wasn't anything tune crazy but you know the first time I've never seen the braves win a postseason series. So. That's why I'm excited about this anyways. Let's move on to the Miami Marlins. So the MARLINS have not been they've like they were really not doing bad. You. Know their bullpen is a little a little thin. They're using a lot. Your SIA which I get. You know mattingly had him on a had him on the dodgers. which you know I guess. Contemplates role but I thought that they could bring in different relievers maybe it's because they're saving them I guess but even then it's like. The series is pretty much over. Bring in somebody else that can give you competitive like can be more competitive like we've kind of touched up Jimmy left and right this series we kind of we have neutralized. Car Brian Anderson you know he's been good but he's Hasn't been really driving the baseball is just kind of like Oh let me put that to ball and just like send this into a gap first single. You know he hasn't really put any real good. Would on anything like that Miguel row haas really connect on one in came one and You know really got it going to the point where we thought were I thought like oh here we go the. Curse back on us but you know besides that besides Miguel Row Haas and then maybe there was one more homer in game in game one I think for the my for Miami There hasn't really been. You know really that many hard hit balls. You Know Sandy can Tara did his thing where he hit a Cuneo which I told you beforehand. Like earlier in the season when when? You know Jose Urania. Was Facing Kunia House. Lego here comes the Marlins they're gonNA do their thing where they hit him again surprisingly they didn't but I mean. I. Who could be surprised when they when they hit? You know Ronald Cuneo Junior now. Like in forty five games or sixty three games, something like that. The. Dude had eighteen homers like. Forty something RBI's banning three thirty with like a bunch of steals against the Miami Marlins in his career and every time it seems like a bunch of the times when we play the MARLINS, he's getting hit directly in the ribs with a fastball. It's never like, Oh, I missed a curve ball or something because if if someone curveball and they hit someone They didn't mean to hit him. That's like A. That is a simple fact that you can hold onto but. You know when when you're throwing a fastball ninety eight miles per hour and you get them on the hip. Kinda blatant. We. You know when you're throwing ninety eight mile per hour fastball at the hands pretty blatant. You know and it's like mattingly during the game said Oh you know like we're not trying to hit them. You know we just have to test them on the inside part of the plate like, yeah. You can test everybody on the inside part of the play, but it seems like you're only really missing Ronald Kuni Junior. So I mean you may not be trying quote unquote but you could call an inside fastball the pitchers. Are especially Jose. Urania in you know all can Tara. Are Definitely, going to drill them. That's my little rant on the MARLINS. But you know Qatar he did his thing. You know we had a really good game on the mound he. Couldn't get it done at the very end What is it was horrified Lopez Jose Lopez one of the two and game too. You know he he only gave up two runs. He only gave up the two solo shots in in game. Two. Really all you can ask for he had an incredible game it just you know he was. You know just. That, he was victim of the braves bullpen and a you know in Anderson's incredible game. Nothing really much to it. You know And then right now, six Sanchez you know he had his little moments where you gave up some gave some big place you know. But. Once again, you know he's having a good like he had a good playoff run. And he's a great pitcher and you know the people are thinking like, oh, the marlins are like a one year wonder i. think the Marlins are going to be back next year. I think they'll find a way to get back with their good young pitching Derek jeeter brought in You know a culture to the game where in Miami where you know they're going to be expected marlins to be successful for a very, very, very long time. All right. Everybody I am going to be taking a quick break and I will be moving on to the Yankees and raise series and what to expect out of that I will be right back. This is your ultimate staffer everything sports, the golden state media concepts or podcast should I say more from the NFL MLB the NBA to MMA all in here the golden state media concepts, sports podcast listen. This. All right everybody. We are back little disappointed ice built a whole lot of water on myself during that break. So that was not but Show to shelter cal right once again, seven innings in his earth sick going six innings in his first start and no earned runs in seven KS, I postseason start. Absolutely. Nuts. So anyways, this I went over that earlier. Let's go over. The. Yankees and the race. Who would have thought? that the rays would come out. So fearless. Like. So fearless. Against the Yankees the Yankees had. The Yankees are a team where it doesn't matter how they're pitching. Their offense could just get it done there, which is always one of those teams or it's like. You know they're pitching wasn't great. The last two three years. It really wasn't, but you can look at it and they always got it done. They WANNA. postseason series. you know you couldn't really like you can never count out the Yankees they could have three bozos like I. Bet that that a that dove and act like that Uber driver I don't think that was randy dope neck who is the driver, but the uber driver for the twins. You know if he was in Yankee Jersey, he would have got the job done in the post season I, guarantee it. There's just something about those pinstripes. and. You know I. I fully expected that here. You know I know that the rays pitching better i. know for a fact that the rays pitching is better they've shown that they're better. You know they got. The glass now in Game Two shoved Charlie Morton in game three. killed. Absolutely killed him. I don't know what Aaron Boone was thinking. In Game Two going with Debbie Garcia and J. HAP- Combo. Over. You Know Masha Hero Tanaka Against tither glass now of all people and then having. Charlie Morton verses. Masahiro Tanaka when he's out of rhythm. They destroyed. Absolutely. destroyed. killed him in every facet of the game like it was not like it was not a close game that all you know John Carlos Stanton. Has. Absolutely killed them you know. He joined Daniel Murphy. Carlos Beltran and George Springer for the only players impose in history to ever homer in five consecutive games and you know he's also the first player ever to homer in each of his first five games in a postseason. He destroyed you know he hit a home run he at the home homerun cycle during the LDS launching you know his second inning Solo shot. He had a tumor homer on Wednesday Yeah. We had a three-run homer in the fourth thing of game too when he had a grand slam on Monday. So. He joined Nelson Cruz in the twenty eleven ale CS as the only players in MLB history to hit for the homerun cycle in a single playoff series. Who thought out of all players Giancarlo Stanton would be the most. Like. Consistent hitter. For The New York Yankees. Like he's been so injury plagued the past couple seasons and you know. He hasn't like he hasn't really put up in numbers in the postseason because he's been hurt. Like last year, you know he was hurt in the postseason didn't even play like they said right now he's the only person to homer in his first five postseason games. So I did not think that having spent the whole season hurt and you know putting up pretty mediocre numbers. He would just bounce back and be. The most feared hitter in the lineup over Aaron Judge Over Luke Voice over Torres Dj, Lemay Hugh You know there's so many people in that lineup. that. Giancarlo Stanton is out here just dominating like that like obviously, you have to make sure that. You have his number. You know you have him. You know game you have a game plan for him. You know how to attack him but right now it just doesn't matter everything. He's touching his flying over the flying over the wall. and. It's incredible. They really is to be honestly. I remember watching Carlos Beltran in two thousand, four going nuts you know remember. Daniel Murphy hitting six straight games You. Know George Springer. Did it. Like. He did it twice. It said at twenty, seventeen and twenty eighteen. George Springer did. Insane numbers like. And now we have Giancarlo Stanton to that mix You know they have all that going on the Yankees have to step it up. Absolutely their backs against the wall. You know in a history of a best of five postseason series teams with a two one lead have gone on to win sixty two of the eighty seven times. Which is seventy percent for all you methods at home. And noted I said, math. A Teams but you know two three teams that fell behind to one of the division series, the nationals and the cardinals of last season came back to win. So it's not unheard of like you know like just pointed out did twice last year. But. You know they also are teams that were you know heavily Lean towards pitching. The nationals they had A. Stacked. Rotation. The cardinals have a stack rotation and they had Marcello Zona who just absolutely killed us and now he's honored you. So you know the the the Yankees they're not really loaded on pitching. At all. They have Jordan Montgomery, Co going tonight against the an opener for the raise giving. man who started game one Blake Snell giving Blake's now another day off like. Just. Just horrible news for the like honestly horrible news for the Yankees. But can we talk about? The. Rookie. On the raise. No idea who this guy's name is. No idea who he is. Just comes out hits three years the best player in the series. Hands down. Tyler, Glasnost said you know. As. Arena. If I said it right Arrow Arrow's Iranian. ZARINA. Air. Rose Arena. Okay. There we go. You call them the best player on Earth Right now now, obviously, it's just a teammate, but you know with glass now saying you're the best player on the planet right now. It's pretty high praise. You know in you know Austin Meadows joked that he needs to follow him around just find a secret like. Awesome. Meadows is an incredible hitter and he's walking around going man I need to figure out what this rookies doing You know he's a twenty five year old Cuban outfielder He hit a home run in all three games of the series and the LDS joining Evan Longoria in Oh eight and Carlos Pena in late as the only raise to homer in three straight postseason games he's also the first rookie to homer and three straight postseason game since cub outfielder cal Schwarzer in two thousand fifteen and since Longoria hit a homer in four consecutive games during the raise run in two thousand eight. So Radi as arena. Is Killing Him. Absolutely dominating. See that was my thing before the series started is I was our saying I, don't know who is going to pick up the offense. For. The Tampa Bay rays. They had the pitching. They absolutely had the pitching, but I just didn't trust their offense because you can't score runs like Kevin? Care Myers GonNa come up when you know when things need to get done and he's going to get it done like I look at Kevin Cure Meyer the way that I looked at Alex Gordon. You. Know they're they're not. Only. They're not guys that you're looking at like Oh these guys are going to kill us all during the season. But. You know when when you need something done. You can count on Kevin Kerr Meyer you can count on Alex Gordon and. That's just exactly what they are. They're just dogs who know how to win and. They needed somebody else to come in. You Know Willie Adamas is kind of having you know a rough a rough go of it Mike Xenos not hitting the ball really well You know there's a lot of there's a lot of things that you know. They need to pick up offensively to really get it done but you know with you know Ariza arena. He picked up the slack. He's giving them the energy and you know they're feeding off it. They're feeding off the energy and they are absolutely just dismantling. The Yankees like as soon as they come back, they go in and they kill them. Like. They just step on there. They just step on their throats step on the gas. and. It's. It's it's awesome like I turn the I can't I went to practice and. You. Know I turned the game on. It was like the fourth inning and the you know the razor up five to one already. Every time I turn on the TV to watch the rays game after practice. Their The razor up like four they already scored four runs, three runs, four runs, five runs. Like they come out and they hit them early. And it's kind of you know it's put the Yankees in a bad spot to where they really have to you know. They got to put you know the ball and they to do it quickly and you know if they have somebody like Charlie Morton who has this stuff working Charlie Morton was Disgusting yesterday. Tyler glass now was disgusting on Tuesday. and. You know it's like you have to get him. You know you have to. Piece him up just to win the game. Like this team had scored nine runs to beat Charlie Morton, yesterday nine runs. You're not scored nine runs off Charlie, Morton? No chance. and. Then once you get to that raise bullpen, you think Oh oh, most teams it's like okay. As long as we can get to the bullpen will be fine. Fat Chance. The bullpen is incredible. Chaz Roe has one of the best sliders ever. Diego Castio. Is. Just. Hundred. Miles per hour with movement. All of them are a hundred miles per hour would movement and just wipe out sliders. Incredible. CHANGEUPS. This team is built further postseason. And It's showing it really is the New York Yankees just were not built for the postseason and it's not their fault. They got Garrett Cole. For reason you know they got they tried to get Luis Severino back. It just didn't work out that way like Luis Severino just couldn't handle the pressure or couldn't handle. You know the pressure that he was putting on his body. That's what I meant not the pressure of the postseason the pressure know that he was putting on his own body. You know sometimes your body can't take it and you know he's a prime example. You, know James Paxton has not been the pitcher that they thought that they got. Jordan Montgomery is not been the pitcher that they really wanted. You know adamant Avino has not been the same as he was in, Colorado? Yeah. He's nasty but he's not in Colorado he was virtually untouchable. And you know I've seen them go off Vino. Late in the Games. and. I just never feel comfortable with holding elite maybe that's just me. Maybe. That's just me. But. Still it is. It's I don't know what to look for like I. Don't know what to think about when it comes to that Hold on let me I'm trying to pull up this astros as game 'cause I. Just realized that I am lead to it. which let me get this on the screen. got. It okay. Got Braves Braves Marlins I got Astros as going. Awesome. All right. So. But yeah, back to this, it's like. The at amount of know. What's going on? Maybe. I'm just missing. You know maybe it's maybe it's just me being you know not paying attention at the Right Times Because that, that could be it. You know that that really could be what's going on is I'm not focusing at the right times maybe it's not on Venus Fault But yeah. They're bullpen is just not everything that it's cracked up to be. The Yankees I mean. In especially going into Petco Park. Like playing in a completely different. Stadium that. Let's be really Yankees never really playing? the I mean neither do the raise, but it's like. Playing in a completely different climate, the ball doesn't really sore like it should. In most ballparks like that's the main thing is like Petco is a pitcher ballpark. So you have to kind of be creative you can't rely on the long ball to you know. Really. Get you over the Hump like the Yankees. Do. It's just not a thing and you know the razor just kind of the razors kind of built for that ballpark. There were the only team this postseason to the game while being out homered. And that's because. They were. That they know what it takes. To squeeze out runs and manufacturer runs the way that they can. You know. Masahiro Tanaka had a pretty bad game. You know it's not looking really great for his You know free agency. Some people have made a lot of money this free agency a lot of people are losing money and One person that's losing money out of this is one hundred percent Masahiro Tanaka. and. It's not really like that funny to think about but I mean. What what can you really do kind of an older guy? You know let's see. Let's keep on what else do I got written down here teach. do I have anything else energy to do the as are up three zero? I will be getting to that Are. Beginning to that series in the next segment. Let's see. Do I have anything else that I really wanted to touch on. I went over I one over Boone green-lighting de over Kevin Cure Meyer being better arose arena. He's pretty much the tyler hero of baseball at this point Mike Stint or Giancarlo Stanton. Sorry. nope. No really okay I. Guess. So like I said, they got Jordan Montgomery versus Ryan Thompson is going tonight for the Tampa Bay Rays Ryan Thompson is an opener Definitely. A bullpen PC only really goes i. they said like a Max of like two and two thirds I think I didn't see anything over two and two-thirds he? No, he's not really. Anything to be completely wild over but. I mean he is in the bullpen of the Tampa Bay rays. So it's definitely someone that could be wowed over. So. Yeah that's really all we got to look out for I will be taking a quick break and I will be right back to discuss the as. An Astros. Currently have an on the TV right here got some notes so we'd like to discuss. So we'll be right back. Tired of searching the vast jungle of podcasts now, listen close and here this out.

So let's Talk, about? This as Astro series? So. As you all aware aware well aware. I am far from an Astros Fan. I hate the Astros everything about him really annoys me. Since I have turned the game on I've seen two homers their currently up a five to three against the as they just completely. Just. Dominated Frankie Montages, which is said Good George I. Think it was either George Springer hit another home run. George Springer. MADE HIMSELF A, ton of money. For one month of baseball. Like. I. Don't care how bad he is. During the regular season he could bat below them in does align the the entire season. If that's the case. Every team is GONNA want him? Every single team is going to want him and it strictly for the postseason. Because he just hits. Tanks. Ab Salute. Tanks. Really all it is. That's all you need in the postseason. He shows up for the postseason and that's all that matters. Like. What like it it it? It's insane. It's absolutely nuts. Because whenever you need a clutch bat. Like. He's always up to bat and he always delivers. It's Like I can't even begin at my head around it. Like What man? He's GonNa make so much. He's going to make so much money. So much money. Jeez anyways. So Jose Altuve is upright now. he just popped up it looks like the inning will be over. Yep leanings over. So the Astros are currently up Elyssa was Carlos. Correa that hit it. Even worse. So you had brantley and Carlos Correa who came through Anyways, let's talk about how. We got to this point. So. The Oakland A.'s. Have this closer. Name Liam Hendriks. And he is an absolute. Beast He's a beast that's it. As three innings save from a closer. is, borderline unheard of. Borderline. UNHEARD. Of. And he came out. and He's through. So many I don't even know how many it was, but he threw a lot of pitches and Hendrix through forty nine pitches in the wildcard series against the against the white sox. and. It's It it it's crazy. That you can have somebody that you can rely on like that and he's not like that young. The fact that they were nine ounce away from elimination and they just come back rower back and just destroy in just. Lay. The lumber on the Houston Astros was nuts. To me and you know they, they hadn't scored past the fifth inning. Ramon, Laureano came in and had some. Really intense words to say. And you know that's that's really all it like. It sparked a rally you know. Hopefully. They can spark another rally because. That's what they need. Like if they can spark another rally right now and push this to a game five I, think that they have the depth to get it done the pitching position. They just have to survive this game. and. That's really all that matters like that's really all it matters at the end of the day is survive and. You know Zach Rinky. Earlier today on Ramon Laureano pitch. If you're listening to this, you've already seen it. He hold up hold up two fingers saying that he wanted off speed and the next on that exact pitch Ramon Laureano. Absolutely killed it, he t dismantled that pitch. It was absolutely nuts. And You know the why would you do that? In a game. Like. WHY WOULD YOU IN A playoff game? I like your thirty seven years old. You don't throw hard to begin with. The timing is not going to be an issue. With you. And your tipping pitches. Literally holding up two fingers doing what Trevor Bauer did in. preseason in you know in spring training. Trevor Bauer was doing that. What what's going through your mind at that moment Like I just I don't get it at all Greeky you are absolutely nuts. But. Let's see. So. Yes. So I just I can't believe that. I actually like I am so hung up on I just saw the replay of that and it was like, what are you thinking anyways? Let's move onto that so. The as became one of the first teams I think the first team to have every infielder hit a home run in a game. that every infielder hit a homer that five bombs yesterday Thomas Delo was one of them telling me Della. Yeah we hit a ninety MPH singer. Directly off his elbow He did have the little protector, but he still went to the ground in a lot of. it looks like he is a game time decision for this game. I've yet to see him bat. So I, don't know if he's actually in the game, all Ramon Laureano is up right now. So I can't. Really. Can't really say if he's actually pointing or not you'll know. When. You're listening to this O and I think Ramon Laurie honor just took him deep again he absolutely did. Laureano made himself a ton of money whenever he's a free agent again, he is going to get. Paid. And he should he should absolutely get paid because he's killing him also, Matt Olsen. You really need to. You really need to cut your hair, do your handsome guy. But why do you have that much hair? I don't get it. But this series has lived up to the hype. It really has There's been eighteen homers I think. How many homers have there been pitched, I wrote it down. yeah. There's eighteen homers and thirty six run or thirty eight runs combined in the three games. You know it's not even the fourth inning and we have nine runs in this game already. I've turned it on for I. Mean you heard me turn it on and in the stretch of me turning the game on. Two right now, I've seen to homer three homers. Like balls or just flying out of the ballpark those Santa Ana winds are really kicking. They really are like the I'm from that area. Of Anna wins are. No joke. They really aren't and when the Santa Anna winds come. Or you got to do with it. They have all high if you can hit the ball high. It the wind will carry it out. It's for people who don't know Santa Anna Winds, you could wake up and it'd be fifty mph winds the winds go up to around. You know you can have winds up to ninety miles per hour when the California wildfires they caught fire season fire seasons right now because the Santa Anna's come down, it is hot dry wind from the Nevada deserts and they can blow. Up. Ninety ninety miles per hour and when they do it, derise out all of the grass all of Just anything living. And You, know it'll dry all of it out all whatever life we have on the hills it's gone, and then it knocks over the wind knock over a power line. And You know up goes the flames since everything's dead. The state goes up and that's just how it was and that's just how it all starts normally. Now, there's some crazy people who are like, Oh, fire season like now it's my time to. Do what always wanted to do but. Most of the time, it's just the Santa Anna winds causing that or like some trucker, not paying attention and flicking a cigarette but that's still has a little bit of embers on the side of the hill and next thing you know it's it's It's a massive wildfire but. You know when it comes in the sense of baseball. Like once you if you get a major league pop fly. It's It's probably gone like the as of hit twelve home runs this series, which is a division series record for ammo beating. Like it's The REA, the and the as they're missing one of the centers at Chapman. And they're still hitting all these homers you know Chad pender wasn't really. The Guy. So to speak. But he's been an amazing piece for the as in this series. And you know he's been a major threat throughout the whole year since I mean since Chapman's been gone So I mean I want everybody knows I want to keep going. and. You know I really hope that they're able to fight off the Astros I will keep you updated during the next segment I. Mean it's top of the ninth right now in the braves game. Danes be. Swanson just hit a triple were still up seven zero. I'm pretty psyched on that anyways L. will be taking my final break and we'll be right back to talk about the dodgers and the padres what an incredible incredible series. That has been already we'll be back in just a few moments. Want to know the latest and soccer than listened to the golden state media. Concept's soccer podcast from M. l.. S. is the World Cup. The Premier League we've got you covered a latest update hottest matches news on the League's top players. It's the golden state media concept soccer podcasts. A Listen. Alright everybody. Let's close this show out. So. Game, three or was it knows game two of the dodgers padres game last night was absolutely insane. So the first game we pretty much the way that I thought I would the dodgers pretty much dominated the Astra or the the padres. Pretty, they absolutely dominated them. They only gave up one run The padres looked pretty much fold their offense was. Neutralized to a point. where it you know I think it was I. think the final score was five to one or something like that. But You know the Dodgers came out yesterday. And they had. An amazing game. and. A new. The PADRES WARREN GONNA. Go Away without a fight. and Man when cody bellinger. Hit that first home run hit the home run now when he robbed it when he hit it I was like no way they are going to run away with this, and then the next half inning comes around and here comes manny. Machado? Who just to just golfed. He's just golfed. That home run out. And it was an absolute missile through the bat had all the type of energy in the world. Then Eric hosmer comes up and hosmer's another person. He's just like, George Springer or does it matter if he's you know batting three fifty or one fifty going into the postseason Eric Hosmer is going. To. Deliver. And you know that's that's just a guaranteed. He came in against Clayton Kershaw. and. Just drove. The Ball, the right center like Hosmer is my type of postseason player. He is one hundred percent I love Eric Hosmer when he gets into the postseason in the regular season, not so much and the regular season. He is one of the most frustrating players to watch in my eyes because I know he's getting paid so much and I know he can do. But it seems like he just waits until the postseason actually comment and deliver on what he can do. It's really weird but you know it's not. It's not too bad You know I I do like. Obviously, it only matters in the postseason. So if it only matters in the postseason, any delivers in the postseason then he's worse is worth the money but still one thing that I found interesting about that game too was. How they handled Kenley Jansen. So I get that Kenley Jansen had the eleven pitch at that with Cronin worth a credible bet absolutely incredible at bat by Krona worth a rookie in that type of situation just having the poised to be able to battle. One of the best closers we've had the past. You know. Ten I mean of this past decade he's definitely top five best closers. Dang the Astros just scored another run their up three again. But okay? With the braves were one out away But yeah like. Kenley Jansen. He had that eleven pitch at bat and everything was just flat and they were driving everything and then they brought in Joe Kelley at the end. It's like is. Is, Kenley Jansen GonNA lose his closer role to grab all. I think is the question that we have to ask ourselves because if the if the situation comes up later in the postseason, which it definitely will if they go in and they play the Atlanta Braves, they're going to be close games the breaking hit. They put everything behind them and they're going to be able to drive the ball. They're going to be able to hit the ball all over the field. And you know when it comes down later in the Games. WHO YOU GONNA trust more a guy who throws flat ninety mph singers. Or a guy for ninety mph cutters sorry or guy who's throwing a hundred and one miles per hour with sink. I'm going to trust the guy who's doing one hundred one miles per hour with sink. and. You know. Dave Roberts is a players manager. He is. He's absolutely going to go with his guys because they're his guys. Like he I mean, he wore can Kenley Jansen down in two thousand sixteen he warm down even more in. Seventeen. Eighteen. He gave them a like. Too much reps he was done. Thank you can tell Jan Johnson. Jansen was gassed. In, twenty. Eighteen And he still had them go out there for two to winning saves two and a half inning saves ending and a half saves. Like. You know he kinda you know the way that Dave Roberts mishandled. The bullpen is you know something? Like You know it's it's it's not new. You know it's been noted. but. You know that's something that I'm definitely going to be looking out for the braves are moving on. To the NFC S. I am so so excited it's great. We do not look very excited. Is I like that. I know a lot of teams come out in their super like. You. Know they go crazy. They celebrate all this kind of stuff and. You know it's like they won the world series. We're coming out with a business type thing. You know we expected this I like that. I like that a lot. Hacky AH. Let's get ready. Let's go. Okay. anyways back to the. Back to the dodgers and Padres with the dodgers and padres. How how's Kenley Jansen GonNa feel. After all that. You know, how is HE GONNA? How's he going to take it? How is he going to you know? Yeah. Just how is HE GONNA take? You know he's not going to be happy if he loses a spot, but it's just how it's supposed to go. Does Dave Roberts have it in them to go to Grad rural or Joe Kelley late in the game? Instead of Kenley Jansen. They're definitely not going to I, think the series is GonNa end tonight because that play by that. HOMERUN ROB by. Cody bellinger. Seriously was the game winning play and it is a series changing play. because. You know they had their problems. 'cause that. That homer would put him up one would have put the padres up by one run at that point now they had their big. You know they're big next half inning. But you know the padres came back and they only lost by one and that was a two run shot so that two run. homer robbery. You know that that's the game winner that is a game winning play by. Cody bellinger. Where any? No, he may have had a bad year year people got on them because cody bellinger had an off year. Look. MVP's. Make MVP plays. And you know he may have a down year but the MVP is still in there. He still going to make those MVP plays and he did that he hit that home run when he's on his back knee. He robbed that homer when nobody thought he? Off of the hot, arguably the I would say the runner up for MVP I picked him before the season to win MVP, you know throughout September throughout August, it looked like he was. The number one guy hands down. But then he kind of fizzled out and Freddie Freeman kind of finish the season super strong. So I mean. It is what it is. I think Freddy Freeman wins the MVP and I'm not sad about that. But When the MVP new type of guy, the new MVP is coming. and. You the last year's MVP is having a rough year he had to go out and he had to make a play. And that was. Awesome to watch and the dodgers urges deep always they're always deep. They're always one of the deepest teams I don't like it. because. It's annoying to me because all my friends are dodger fans and I hear him talk about how it's their year every year. Yoko receivers having a good series. mookie Betts. What more can we save? Mookie? You know when? When when? He made that when he robbed that home run. It was A. You know when he rob that home run, it was You know mookie was really. Really like he had a lot of emotion on especially went a challenged by manny, Machado. You know Manny Machado, he threw his bat when he at the homer, he had all the emotions and then grow through his hat and his glove and all that kind of stuff and show the emotions. Look I love it. Be Emotional it's the postseason you fight your whole life to get to this moment. And you know you can't. Machado's trying to have his cake and eat it too. That's just not the way it goes. That's not how the world works. Gave you able to celebrate the area celebrate don't Bark Them I. Mean we just got mad at the dodgers for how they handled. You guys like barking at you after you celebrate shrank Grisham thing. Speaking of Trent Grisham that was the last time the dodgers lost to the padres was that Trent Grisham game. and. You know. Trend Grisham. You may messed up how you may have blown it. Like. You woke up the sleeping bear. And you know that's just what that's just what happens. But moving on to this game. The game today, we have Dustin. May. Versus Adrien Morin, who is a reliever? He is the opener You know the longest outing this year was three innings. He were to and one and the three games where he went exactly three full innings. When you went between two innings. Two and two and three innings to and third to two thirds. They're oh, in two. And then before that, when he went to, you know one inning, two, two winnings, they were I, think two and two. In those games so he's thrown a lot. You. Know. So we'll see if he's able to put together three good innings of work against the dodgers and Dustin may then look for him. I mean, look for a good game by the padres. Dustin being on the mound for the dodgers. Has Me feeling wonderful. 'cause Dustin. May. Arguably blessed best lettuce in the game. Best Hair in the game. That is not up. For. Debate. But. He is electrifying. Like the amount of kids that are throwing a hundred miles per hour. With movement. Is. Next. level. It like it. I can't even explain it like how are we just finding all these guys? That throw horror miles per hour. With movement. Normally, if you through one hundred miles per hour. It was like, Whoa you gotta sit back and watch this everyone has that now? You know the the. The rays have like four guys. The dodgers have like five guys you know the as loaded with them. What? What happened what changed? You know with this team I think that the I think that the padres. And the padres are going to have a great game today I don't think they're. GonNa lose today's game I think that they'll find a way To pull this game out especially with the Even the especially even though their bullpen has been kind of iffy, it's been shaky or year even though we thought that they were going to be one of the best You know. So I would look for tomorrow's game five to be the and obviously it's the end but you know tomorrow's game five looks like it would be like. You know it would be the end of the padres I should say. which is really sad because if they would've had Denilson Lynette and. And cleverly throw I, feel like they would have won this series they were my pig to make the for the world series But you know with that being said, I think it's going to be the dodgers and the braves in the LCS. and. That's really all we can say about it. It's going to be an incredible game. It's going to be. You know it's going to have all the fireworks. The PADRES ARE GONNA come out they're going to be you know emotional. The dodgers are gonNA come out thinking it's business as usual. And I feel like. You know the. The thing about dust in May is I feel like the you know the pressure may be able to get to in this moment and the pressure does get them. They're going to have to go to the bullpen, which is you know better than it used to be. But I don't think that it is something that could. Hold off the padres and huge moments especially when you know. A role as good as he is. Everybody who faced him some pretty solid contact last night. So I expect. I expect baseball on Friday. You know there's four close out games. Today one of them got closed out. It's looking like the other series is going to get closed out tonight but I expect there to be baseball on Friday.

It's the shipping container freaky with you on a Friday. Oh, guys I have I smell it. You smell it Tony. Smell that. Do That's playoff implications tonight with braves in Marlin. The marlins are in the hunt. It's mid August and we have a baseball game that matters I have not felt this way about baseball in years gentlemen. I'm not even I'm not even kidding like I am planning my days now around did you stay up? Did you stay up for fourteen eleven? Extra innings? Did you stay up all the way into the night to watch fourteen eleven and incredibly sad buffalo Off Sad dan I was a hit a hitting sprees. What they call that fourteen eleven was like a Dolphin score. Yes. I stayed up for that. I have not missed a pitch I. Don't think of Marlins Games I'm fired up I thought the MARLINS. We're going to blow that game I have a group chat that's just meant to troll the mets fans that I know he did blow that game it was eight nothing they were winning eight nothing and ended up an extra inning. So I always get cocky I'm. A little busy him away from my phone haven't been able to check what's a score, and now when the Marlins are good I'm like, Hey, what what's the Marlins score because I? Always just like trolling the mets by how much better the Marlins are and I sent the tax at eight zero hey, guys can anyone check what the marlins score is I'm running a bunch of errands and then like twenty minutes later after no response on this I got it. I got the score because they stormed all the way back. What was the final score that game? On. June eleven. Yeah. But it was crazy because their bullpen is bad normally and now all their bullpen guys are sick or at least coming back from this cogan thing. So their bullpen right now is. People you've never heard of. It's crazy. Yeah. But you know it's awesome because they missed like a week and a half of baseball play a load of seven inning games where they don't really need to test that bullpen. It's an it's a crazy advantage for a team like the Marlins with the bad bullpen you mentioned the scores and teasing your friends with the scores. The good thing is that beginning money Monday August seventeenth. Every half hour. You'll be able to get your scores. In the updates I know many of you still do it that way where you wait every half hour and you tune into your radio and you find out wow, the Yankees one, eight, two, five in seven innings. You'll be able to get that beginning Monday every half hour on ESPN radio I just I know that the sports centers on ESPN radio exists to be sold right so that was the whole attitude of our show when we decided. Well, let's just make content out. Of It, get one of these bottom of the hours Outta here. Let's just let's just have fun with it because we know that it's just a commercial. Let's put fun programming in there but considering how the the messaging that I'm getting and I've gotten way too many emails on the below. The Standard are present situation. You guys please absorb that for a second and when I say you guys, I'm talking to the zoom call but the audience you're welcome to absorb it as well. They decided that the number one sports radio show in America and what can't be argued the most different sports radio show in America they have decided that our sportscenter flashes poorly read by stugatz, which are an epicenter for content creation for our radio show where we can make fun of everything happening there they have decided after Stu got said that he was the best update man in America, and that's the reason that he wanted to do it that it is beneath their standard that is a phrase Mike Ryan has gotten from. Management beneath their standards. So the the most recent two weeks that I had off I, didn't really check my email at all. I tried like checking the email occasionally the first two weeks I'm like this does not feel like I'm away. So I shut it down. Liam. Texts me hey, heads up they're going to change the sports center. So I was already like and I'm like I don't have saying this right I tried to fight for it, but it was relayed to me that there was no shot. So I already know. Cut to Monday where I'm like catching up all my emails and I see the original email in which this was sent and just start laughing because it just drags us for how terrible or sportscenter reads are it is so funny is just like a a constant reminder of just how poor we are and I kinda just thought that that was the whole gag. Let me tell you a funny story because you mentioned brand and I don't think I've told have I Told you this story I'm not sure I have because there are a number of funny things that happened before we joined ESPN and if you don't remember the history of it it's not something that I wanted to do and I was wrong because we should have gone to espn but everybody else wanted to do it and it was a higher profile Gig but I was worried about sort of corporate dilution of what we do and I really value freedom so. A couple of weeks out okay. After they've tried to replace Stugatz with Bomani. A couple of weeks from starting the show, we've already signed all the paperwork. WE'RE ABOUT TO START I get my first call from the guy who's running the audio division. And that call is him asking me how we make a a local show national explain him all look south. Florida sports have been pretty bad here for a while we already do a national show. It just happens to be local and then started talking to them some more and I just I'm like, Hey, if you heard the show. and His answer was no. And I'm like, do you think you should do that before we started talking about what I'm going to do with the show but that's not the part of the story that I'm. Wanting to tell because I've told that part before I met with that guy at a downtown Miami Hotel back when you could do those things. I'm not making this up. He. talked the entire time about the brand. The brand. And when it was over as I was saying goodbye to him, I said I just need to know this? I don't care at all about any brand. Yeah. That shows it shows and the brains important to people that have been with the company for a very long time. You know sportscenter is a brand that's almost as famous as ESPN they're synonymous and the branding look what suits was doing given. The history of the sportscenter brand was an insult to the brand I'm not refuting anything in the multiple email. That's that's been the joke. It's our whole show or show is this turned that sits in the middle middle of this river of sports gold and it's keeps growing even though all were doing polluting all the water it's the entire joke I am excited to sorta hit the reset button because during a global pandemic and everything that was going on with racial injustice social injustice says. A lot of shows started sounding a little bit more like ours because they didn't have sports to go to. Now we're not going to sound like any of the shows. So that's exciting. Is this the local hour therapy center? The therapy session raves tonight happening right now. What Barkley said last night that nobody's scared of the he. Got Things to talk about boy. That's an excellent point. If you WANNA hear more of a therapy session between Dan and I check out today's mystery created is live and we just sort of air this out it's affected us a deeply it has and this is part of the tension we have around here though because I want to deconstruct because we're a show about a show I want to deconstruct what just happened there because some of the constant tension around here is yesterday or two days ago we talked too much sports some days we talked to little sports every day Jack this every day we talk too much about ourselves, but you just started leading the show. You don't want to lead the show you know good, and well, that anyone who leaves this show is the Asshole for the day you know it better than anybody actually Mike knows it better than anybody I know quite well, already hate myself. It happens Chris it's part of it, and if you just happen, that's why a collective is good collective is. Just perfect because no one gets to be the annoying voice that talks too much. It's hard driving I realized it was so funny I'm like man driving is really hard because you're talking and you're trying to read the faces of other people and set them up that you become a more diluted version of yourself and I'm explaining this the Dan let everyone everyone else wins everyone else gets to be a funny guy. Then all I'm the one that's hated because all I spend my time is trying to set other people up and make them feel like they're talking to and Danja is like, yeah, I, know that's been the last fourteen and a half years. He was he was explaining although I'm no Chris explained to me how you felt it. When you're the guy who leads what kind of criticism do you get people were just complaining about every last thing that you talk about well, honestly I don't want you're talking about the thing that rhymes Schmidt I don't go on that at all. I don't re- really know about it but I just feel it when I'm in it that I'm not the best of this I should be third or fourth voice. Your me try to put the other paragraphs and sentences. Jumping in for like two sentences and then jumping. I'm talking for. This is not good. I'm losing poverty as I go on. So please hold on. Okay. I'M GONNA stop. You. Right now and I am going to expose someone and make them feel worse than you are at this because I don't believe anyone listening to. This has probably noticed. That billy avoids all of that criticism by trying very hard to never be leading like he's spotted that a long time ago and billy hides in the shadows so that he can be funny guy or the guy or the guy who disrupts or the anarchist. How often does billy lead around here? Billy picks his spots. He is so great at it because yeah. When when I sorted leading my be funny even the stuff that was. Yeah even like the heat homer stuff I used to like that. Now I talk about the heat everyone's like turn them off I'm like this is how you guys sort of like me but is picked out the perfect lane, and if he's ever in a situation where on out or Chris's out boom alison. Lorenzo Charlie like easily he builds up his ensemble so he can continue to formulate his next thought be Max efficient and Max funny. The best thing about billions at crystal start on a random local are Wednesday right will start with hey, guys did you see about cheese and then all of a sudden billy ohi jacket and speak for about ten minutes straight and will Chris me Roy nobody will say anything for about ten minutes. But that's how he does. He let somebody else do it and then he takes control and then does a fifty minute of monologue. Yep He let someone else established the League and then everyone in their cars or listening at the at the gym on their device is rooting for the ZAG and billy comes in and dunks on it and everyone applauds Array Billy and Dan's the jerk again Mike George. Striving. Who's actually better than even billy at this and I'm staring right at him. I'm looking right into his eyes and he is yeah, he feels me he feels my withering glare before we get back to heat and Marlins talk with Chris Cody I'm curious what it would sound likes. We all step out of the way and pretend we're starting over what it would sound like if Roy were leading if throat you, it's like once we. Yeah And how'd that go? I'm on bit I do the short answer bit with Billy. So you know. It doesn't last too long, but it gets chuckle out of everybody. But if we were to give you say like a two and a half minute monologue in two and a half minutes is a long time I. am curious to see where you can. We try this hold on a second Roy. This is a terrible spot and I'm GONNA filibuster for a second to give you a moment to formulate your thoughts. Also just give out the time and temp like every thirty seconds that takes care of like five seconds of Content Greg Cody who is always putting winning positions around here that he fails to execute he is the master of the blown alleyoop Dunk Greg Cody was given a couple of minutes to do The floor is yours, and before the end of the second minute he began singing. So it can be hard to just continue to talk for two and a half minutes I feel like right Roy might go to the hockey hockey wheelhouse here. But if we were to restart the show right now with the Roy show two and a half minutes, could you do it Roy? Do you feel comfortable just talking for two and a half minutes here? I feel comfortable with talking and in stopping at about thirty seconds. Yeah. Pretty much. Okay. So do it five times that long are is everyone ready okay. I can have multiple thirty-second clocks in your mind but reset every thirty seconds if you like but two and a half minutes worth of this isn't two and a half minutes of show. He's doing right because he can't use US just two and a half minutes bouncing around in Roy's mind. Okay. Fine Tony I can see has a stopwatch ready to go on your mark. Get set content. Welcome to another episode of the Lower Everybody's Roy Bellamy's eight fifty one in the morning eighty two degrees here Miramar last night in the Stanley Cup. Playoffs. CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS THEY LOST AGAIN, down to zero the Vegas Golden Knights it. Before the playoffs started, the blackhawks were a new going to be the surprise. Cinderella is tournament, but it doesn't look like they're gonNa get past big is unfortunately the Columbus blue jackets last night they came back from that five overtime, a lawsuit lightning and one three to one that was a good situation for them. the hurricanes defeated the bruins three to the split the series at one I think the hurricanes are going to go fro foreign is a Stanley Cup playoffs I. Think you're GonNa go far our bosses love this up. You're doing exactly what he's been up to. This is wonderful. Yes in the stars the. Flames like this correctly fide the Ford to split their series at one piece I got. The job good job by now tonight. coyotes versus avalanche. Canadians were suppliers. Roy You can't go to the schedule in fifteen seconds. And you also said tonight I believe that. Game is at. Two o'clock. Wants the playoff games today I gotTA keep it real. He's been a pretty long. The longest. This would be a bad show in like Manitoba I enjoy. Present we're island. Fifty three in the morning eighty, two degrees here. Pack. What we get an opinion. I just did and I gave us this. Hurricanes, they're gonNa go far understand what you said. Something a good situation for them I. think that was the strong as opinion you gave everybody. Done. Yes. Look the trick to really send and have multiple shows on ESPN. Just throw out a question don't ever give your opinion. Thinking to fly chances there. That's perfect. Also jealous of Mike Greenberg I don't know if you can tell he got another show I saw this was announced. It's a gambling show and it's called better days. What a great lamp, these young banner mind far. Better bets on Sports. Better. Days. How can that fail? You don't like that rowing three. Good. It's pretty good. Honestly like most of the stuff that works anywhere is just based off a name that's so not true. All the time trying to think of names and studios in everyone forgets as soon as the show starts like all the time that's spent on how what are we naming this and what is you GonNa look failed show movie anything. Anything that had an amazing name. Go Away forever quite quite frankly with Stephen a Smith. Right. Yeah. It lasted a season. To pilot. Way To go. Chris. That was good. The Art of conversation, the art of conversation it lasted shows there's going to be an interview show is going to have some art, the art of conversation. Cower Oh. Wait a minute. Do people know hold on a second Roy this another one of those old head references how long did Magic Johnson's talk show last? Was it eight days? Magic Johnson had a talkshow because people have been giving him jobs forever because he's got a great smile and he's very likable although not exactly talk show charismatic and that show lasted you remember Mike How do you remember anything about it remember launched with all the the way emmys because the talk bubble way me which was Waimea Miami that was actually a national brand of you know like sort of public access channels got bought by this conglomerate that was trying to turn a profit a magic, Johnson even though syndicated. He was really the linchpin of many of those networks. You would find it on other networks across the nation and they just went all in on sporting rights to down here they had the marlins and the heat on whammy, and then like a C- a year and a half into the project, those rights came back up so I think it lasted. Maybe a month. Roy, what's the number? What did you find? What did you find there? Two months did last two months. Okay. I. Had it at Eight Days Roy can you tell me how long do you remember that heather? Graham. Show Heather Graham had a show that was thank you Roy. Thank you. You do remember moment in time. No because this is why it's funny rise laughing because there has never been such a commercial onslaught where a show got more advertising going in and then I don't think it lasted more than the pilot and like one show. Roy will find the name to this show. Monday night football away on ABC Oh Yeah Yo now, I remember it was something like neighbors or something like that. It was like they were trying to do like a more adult friends and Heather Graham. Who was really hot at the time in terms of star power and maybe other things are. You. I felt like you corrected yourself. I was kind of surprised that you end who was really hot there. Had such a crush on Heather Graham, but that's not what you were doing corrected. So nicely when you said in terms of I knew what I was trying to say there was actually like a few there was a slip actually I wanNA. Play this Stephen as sound because he kinda got the phrasing wrong I think this is yeah. Loneliness. Simple You better let somebody come up in their. Understand what I'm saying to you just real. Some I got said somebody Dr Steven. SIPPEL. They date they. Understand need so much less. Callahan. Hey listen let's let's listen. It would be nice to see you know the whole family and all that stuff I got that. You understand I really really do but we all know that you know six of those teams going home at the end of this week 'cause going to be in the playoffs, right? Well, that sixteens, right okay. So you got the teams roster and all of their personnel now, you can't just let family come up. But but but you you want somebody can then you can let a wife or girlfriend come. Phrasing yeah. So I was going for. It is the name of the show. It lasted one episode. The pilot was the name of the show. Your microphone went out there emily's reasons why not? Terrible name airbags why it failed terrible to jumbled and I know what you were going with the art of conversation because you had your brothers art involved in it, but it did come off a little hoity toity. Like, this is smart and the name is smart and we're just GonNa make you feel dumb. Let's walk through the other reasons why the show Was Two years after the fact. Era Possession. Today Yeah. I think we can watch it on demand on ESPN plus I'll give it a shot. Maybe it's like kingdom where it has this research has find it anywhere. I, can you find? I can't find it anywhere. No I haven't made sure of it like at this point, it has been hidden play like Tyson's in the news the Tyson. Thing was an evergreen. There was a pandemic. Programming yeah they. You could've run two things on Riley and Tyson and they would have been interesting I can't find I remember I think about a month before the pandemic, which is actually quite a long time ago when when you really think of it, I was at like this like dive bar and was like three thirty in the morning and I saw you interviewing Pat Riley on ESPN news I'm like what that's art of conversation. That doing there. Do you think anyone's ever watching that. Consistently, hearing from people who have seen it at three thirty in the morning on Youtube and they're like, who is unbelievable Mike Tyson smoke toad poison and thought he was dying and tried to fight the Shaman. Thought it was interesting to. We used to be the young guys. By the way we used to be the you know I know and launched art of conversation with a fifty year old and a seventy year. That's correct. My. Memory my biggest memory of all that much Dan was sweating and Pat Riley's house. Comfortable. I'm convinced they touched it up and post production because I. saw the original cut. It was. That I, tell you guys this story of what it is that happened there. There, right before we started. Pat Riley at the bar nearby. Broke out some of his good whiskey. And I haven't had a liquor. That's not Tequila in forever. So I just had a couple of SIPS and my body simply rejected like my body is Brown. Rejected I just had like a couple of. A couple of sips of this finest of whiskey and what you see is me I believe at one point he was fanning me he was just a you know he was concerned about me because my face had begun dripping. What was the AC circulation like it was fine yes. Yes. Of course, macy's rally everything around that dude is cool everything. Yeah. How many though? He lives in a Penthouse, right? That's what I gathered from the art of conversation that places crazy. I know. So I just a Penthouse, right? So it's it's a part of a building. So it's not like your conventional house. We're not talking about a mansion, right? It is a mansion man, it's and. It's it's it's the top three floors of a building. It's overlooking the water it's You know it's the art in there is more money than any of us has. So what four ABC's? What else was in there that you guys would find interesting obviously, the view is spectacular. AC's you were five the Senate energy bill like the thing that's actually impressive is the home in Malibu like he's actually I haven't been there but he's shown me it on on his. Read that article though it seems sad. The home in Malibu. That he can't get back to. It's like a ghost mansion with all these cars and anytime he goes to this mansion he. Wants to retire. They'll keep them away from that mansion that place is crazy. Imagine imagine at the height of I mean he was being paid. Fifty Thousand Dollars Speech But imagine being the showtime. Laker, coach at the height of Hollywood and the height of sports blowing up. And that's the only way to phrasing. Look man who was Los Angeles in the eighties and and it went showtime ended what ninety one, ninety, one when. and. That wasn't even a good laker team. Yeah. Come on. That's got to be insane right? It's gotTa be insane much. Do a show about that. I think Adam McKay is doing i. gotTa McKay is doing something about Jerry Buss it involves Jhansi Riley yeah, I thought it was Michael Shannon. Now. There's a backstory there. That's funny. Though supposed to be Michael Shannon but Michael Shannon and this surprising is a little bit odd. I would have been disappointed if the answer was other than that. I feel like we're talking too much. We are talking to go ahead Chris. Takes. Me overnight about like all your ideas and we're like forty minutes into it. I mean I love another memory I had from watching Arctic conversation with Pat Riley. Did that TV thing they were they play a game of pool while they're talking and I always get frustrated by how little people are actually concentrating on the pool game and I'm watching how terrible your car and you guys are just trying to look cool and talk and like Dan was self was very insecure about it. Every shot he'd hit he'd be like, I'm terrible. But it just I love I. Just Love the idea of a conversation while we're doing something casual. Yeah. There is a lot of spectacular. Let's use Miami so much be rolled. Cut a jump cut you know. Pat. Riley in a car that's more expensive than any of the paychecks combine that you'll get in your lifetime and here's Dan just awkwardly about his how his hair looks in the convertible. While sweater. Camera Angle too close. Like the cameras a little too close to. Thank you I appreciate your here's crazy by the way Dan I saw an each Q. HQ did something on Social Wins lasts haircut that you got I have not gotten a haircut since pre pandemic I've I've had the same haircut, my entire life. So this is a far and away the craziest my hair's ever been can can we see it short? But the reason. It's not shocking at first I will do this for you had some volume to your hair you got some curls. Well I have some I have hair hanging out of the baseball caps but what's GonNa Happen here is I'm GonNa take the baseball cap off and it's not gonna be any kind of shocking to you know that looks like normal vintage Dan. Okay. But now when I take my glasses off to but and I don't know if this is GonNa work. Because we're not a visual medium as you guys know but as I start to run my hands through my hair, what you guys are GonNa Notice is that I I will end up looking like Bozo the clown as soon as I'm done with this where. You have so much hair it all goes sideways though like and it's a little wet now here because I just got out of the shower. I showered while Roy was doing those. Not, five eastern Ninety degrees. Seems like your volume has increased. Get you should keep it long because I know didn't you say you had hair and a cam for highly questionable because the overhead lights on treat anybody kind in this industry A long time ago when I was at. PTI. When I was doing PTI there was something about the lighting there in Washington that made my hair looked like I had just sort of Chia, pet splotches and so. It was it was definitely the studio's fall. So I would go in there and they would use a ray hand of hair that was like pepper or salt like whatever it is that you imagine and they would just sort of. Throw it over the splotches. Oh you know what? I was thinking because I've been making myself laugh because a breed. Oh, because when I was growing up, you'd see like every like Ocean magazine or weekend section I had no idea who a was as a little kid. But he would be like in front of all these step in repeats at all these fancy events and we would do this bit early in. The show like, Oh, they're going to make it a Miami events. So get out or touro sandoval out there on the fluid and Glorious Stefan I. Think you're becoming like one of those Miami celebrities where Oh we have an event in Miami we have to get. Dan. Le Batard. Show up just yesterday I got like a note somebody wants somebody I've never heard of wants to honor me. and. It's like. NAVISION Mundo does today I don't know what it is and you got. You gotta go there they got. Champions. League. But I think you're becoming like Well. Like Aboard Room Pitch Okay make this Miami we gotta get. Glorious. Steph. Can't get Nestor Torres. What about Dan Laboratory bringing? Out. Oh Dan. Batard. You've become like one of those shifts Miami specific celebrities. Congratulations. On. All Right, Chris we've been hogging at long enough. I really liked the whole theme of this is how much people hate the people that drive in, and then it's just me and Dan hogging the entire thing Chris Gopher promising let you speak I mean I really got it all out in that first opening. Excited about tonight's Marlins Game I didn't have enough. We want to get into the nuts and bolts of things. I have some things we can talk about having fun this little Clar we don't have to change it up we're. Chris you sent this attacks that like ten thirty last night with fourteen different bullet points about all you wanted to talk about and you got out in like one minute. Well, it's like, yeah, I'm good. You started started the text by saying I'm fired up about. Local. I find that we have better local hours when we discussed things before and you know throw topics at each other granted I. Did it a little late in granted I didn't get any response. So I was just like I guess I'm not I'm the only one that's fired up but the things you've read it but Chris you haven't gotten to all of your topics in the first minute. Here's the texts you sent us at nine fifty five last night, which is late for me by the way I am fired up for local tomorrow huge marlins brave series this weekend playoff implications covered that I would appear them back to. The extent of your thoughts on All right we got to that you said that huge playoff implications what else on that text? Why hasn't Meyers Leonard played in the bubble question mark exclamation point since the and on the Chin emojis since. A lot of conspiracy theorists out there wondering why Jae Crowder is out there the moment that Mike Meyers Leonard hasn't seen the court since he stood for the anthem now I actually some reporting on this I talked to a source and apparently it's just sees everybody's healthy right now. So he's out of the rotation that we should see him actually in the playoffs Chris giving some info check all right check, and this is the last thought. Corey Dickerson parenthetically I think this note was for me even though I have watched the marlins. Me Mike. Is The marlins player for those who don't know. Thank you very much helpful tip always producing Chris has never in caps had a burger or hotdog dot dot dot and he hates bread. This is the lead right here. This is where we should spend the whole hour dixit. How did it take this long to get here? Why did you not lead us here from the very beginning you know this is the wheel house for our entire show. How is it that we've just unearthed it forty five minutes in from the bottom of Mike Ryan cell phone. Because you and Mike of Ameri. So. Let's it. He looks fantastic. Have you guys seen Corey Dickerson? He's those people. Would not know Corey Dickerson if I woke up next to him. I. I. Think they'll hold on a second. WHO's this guy? Tell me if I'm wrong about this is he somebody Chris in that game that they had where survey hit the three run homer in the ninth earlier in that inning did is he the guy who had a really long bat fouling balls off fouling balls off and then yanked it to the first basement and growers kid gobbled up is that the same guy? I believe so he's known for long at bats. He chokes a cop hours worth loves the WAY HE CHOKES UP. Yeah. That's the same guy. It's obviously a great asset to have a guy that is show except that is not good. Tony put a of things on the poll here because there are some funny things here one can you trust somebody who has never eaten bread and to do you want the feature in your baseball team to celebrate being a guy who chokes up well I mean, yes or no Shokhin pokes very important Dan but the crazy part about this is this isn't just him being like arm. So healthy I don't eat carbs. He doesn't like bread he doesn't like the texture of bread. He looks fantastic though I was thinking to myself I shouldn't eat bread or hamburgers. This, Guy, you guys seem very fits they. Just told you I wouldn't recognize him. If I woke up next to him I probably seen him but all the Marlins, it's just facial blindness with me. There's a guy that looks like one of the Molina's at superfund in the in the dugout because he goes yard. WHO's this guy? The unnecessary Torres I don't know that sounds right. The marlins also have this thing they're doing on Youtube. It's called the clubhouse. It's like a show that they're releasing once a week last week they did like a town hall and basically Miguel Row Haas is Ryan seacrest in key hosts every episode and he I mean he is he's a good guy he's got a good personality but it's like why are they turning Miguel Row Hossen did This guy who's like literally hosting show that is like a personality 'cause they paid him this off season and you know how the Marlins do it. If they can also get hosted TV show they finally they gave him a little bit of money and said, hey. Can you also host a show for US weekly and also we need some help with the plumbing in in section over there. Chris in this youtube original series because all these teams now just essentially do their own hard knocks, but it's not accessible. I. Would love for this to be on conventional platform that I could access it. But I don't remember Oh my God the Indians have their own hard knocks but a staple of doing like the inside hi Fi. You know team documentary, it has to begin with a slow motion shot of a sprinkler. Got It always staple always yeah or if it's a baseball one, you got to see like the lines being chalked always in some ocean dude. This is like a hard knocks move to at every first episode of hard knocks. You see them like putting up some like sign on offense and using one of those lanyard things to tie it in like I love the. Field during a harden I, want a green light a series where it's just. Like. Jerry rounds, keepers that would begin slow motion here. So Great. You come out with a thirty minute show and all of it is just those shade opens and the show is over. Twenty two minutes you just do twenty two straight minutes cliche open thirty, five minutes into it, and like wait is this just groundskeepers rolling a tarp the entire Stocking locker with. Agree with that the knock started during a pandemic and all they did was you saw them just setting up literally setting up the whole season by just going out. Just, hey white. Hey, why's that guy? Fred. Just wandering over there with a yellow bucket, you see them put the sticker golf over the locker and by the end of the episode, the slow motion poll of the Label Goff Locker of. I just got this I mean, and you have like Leah Schreiber, occasionally just narrate what's happening. The stories are on the grounds keepers here because we have no preseason football get to know those guys Mike What'd you call him Lee Schreiber. Leave it's live. I thought it was live. Okay. Leave it's leave fiber Lee's I'm sorry. Not said as. He did he did he put an extra syllable in there? I was pronouncing it Kiev. Yes. That's exactly what you were doing. Kiev, but just spelled that way. Right? You are being true to the spelling. Yeah I'm sorry. Are We bigly of Schreiber fans here I'm sorry. He's good. Donovan. Goose. Yeah. There was a ray Donovan show where he got around Los Angeles everywhere in like ten minutes, which is it was incredible. He never had to do anything you've never in traffic never had a charges phone he never had A. Baseball kick. People's ass. It's a credible. He's got an amazing voice. He's as good at narration as anybody. Really using credible I don't know who who, I compare him to I guess Morgan Freeman Right. But Morgan Freeman using more he's still gets voice work, but it's sketch. There are still real life ray, Donovan are there. I'm sorry hold on a second I need to I need to stop here and just understand why Mike Ryan just filed the accusation at Morgan Freeman that the work he's getting these days is sketchy I don't I don't know I said hiring he's still getting big gigs big voice work. That's a testament to how like for nominal his voices these eighty something. Yeah, I. Don't know if you've seen what's happened to like. Some of these people so they were like the hardcore me Tude like you're out you're out, and then there is like the fringe me to suffer like if this happened five years ago, you would have gotten away with it and maybe we'll get back to you but it's still a little too hot like James Franco. When's the last time? You saw James Franco do anything that people were talking about Hollywood's left him. He's like he's taking like really low budget straight to DVD type projects right now because Hollywood's just like you got your too high right now for us to touch, we can find another James Franco will pluck another James Ranko but Morgan Freeman. Cam Find that voice anywhere. Really. so you swallow the bad pr because if you look into it, it's Just saying it's A. Former step step granddaughter as just I. Wonder if Morgan, Freeman, I don't know any of the details beyond that. He's got some of this on him but I wonder how much he almost literally gets grandfathered in from a different time where we make these things less egregious if you are now eighty years old somehow even if it was happening when you were younger yeah I wonder if we're just softer there yeah. Well, I found it funny because like some music festivals was riot fest, which is like a really fun festival but they book Jerry Lee Lewis whereas like someone just like deeming someone who's eighteen? And like amy backstage their. Twelve year old or fourteen Jerry Lee Lewis. was suspected of killing somebody and I'm just. Google that Because, the evidence is pretty convincing. I, we're not skewing younger with Jerry. Lewis, I'm telling you though guys the Jerry Lewis Story is insane. You know Jerry Lewis one time. All right. This is this is nuts. Mike's been wanting to get to the Natalie Wood story for the for about two months now I? Go ahead okay okay. I I'm sorry you're no longer leading here but this is where Mike does the thing where he grabs the murder mysteries and starts leading the show and soon, everyone will hate him I'm talking my audience right now. Roy Roy. Yeah, you know about Natalie Wood Right. Yes, of course, all this Roy knows so. Natalie, Wood Roy but thank you. Now we would was starlet. She was in rebel without a cause. I have a rebel without a cause movie poster James Ian was coolest Hollywood at went throughout all sorts of Hollywood eras right? Absolute. starlet married a bunch of times. Married or engaged Robert Wagner, and then they broke apart and then a great story great lovers story they get back together. But. If you if you Google it and research the details it kind of seemed like a little open. There was something going on with Christopher Walken. Something that that Christopher Walken the guy that everyone doesn't impression of like there was like. Rumors of Romance. So that's vague rumors of romance and something going on his very vague, right. So the three. Robert Wagner nat his wife, Natalie Wood and Christopher Walken all go on a boat together is weird up three of them go out and only two of them comeback right? Because there's an argument on board between Christopher Walken and Robert Wagner because it true story. Yes. Robert Wagner Robert Wagner for those that don't know you like Austin Powers Right. Chris Cody. You're saying how awesome it is. He plays number two. He plays number two in. Not The rob Lowe version. The older version he was he was a television star at the time of three networks. He was He was in heart to heart. He was the lead and heart to heart. So Christopher Walken and Robert Wagner. into some sort of verbal altercation hold on I'm sorry Michael on Roy and Tony why are you laughing? I'm trying to help the older podcasters who might not know what we were talking about with Austin powers. Did you think I was just flexing by Robert Wagner Muscle. Were were. Too Hard. We are skewing younger. I'm sorry younger because I'm I'm realizing right now that me trying to connect with a younger audience invoking Austin powers at steel like super data? Right I'm almost them with the Natalie Wood misery, and then we'll go to Jerry. Lewis Right. So they get their on this yacht. Robert Wagner's I. Read this thing in the press and Christopher, ins like yeah. But it's not true and like there there's some sort of verbal altercation there's wine everywhere and now. I'm over I'm going to bed and she's like. She's just like these guys I liked him so much but they're fighting downstairs in the cabin I'm going up and then she realizes you know I'm feeling pretty good. The talks, a toxicology report would suggest he's feeling grand. And she's like I'm GonNa wrote a shore and she like Roh tries to get into some sorta dinghy disappeared gone missing found dead she's dead droughts drowns Natalie would droughts. But all of Hollywood is like what the hell happened in that boat was Robert Wagner Furious Robert Wagner potentially kill was this like a love triangle gone wrong and Robert Wagner, if you watch this Hbo Documentary That was produced by his family, which is important to note CBS's always being treated really unfairly in the press because everyone is pegged him as a murderer but we don't know the truth of what happened on that boat and Christopher Walken does not discuss this hill Christopher Watkins been a part of our lives a pop culture icon I'm probably breaking this news to you acceptable Roy. I this is crazy story. It is. Okay. You can watch the documentary again produced by watch it. The Watch and if you WANNA know more just like call me. Or Google morale's so google on to Jerry Lee. Lewis now, as we get even younger Jerry, Lee, Lewis sang that song great balls of fire. You guys also that's on. Also. Graces there you go. The rare celebrity with three first names. So Jerry Lee, Lewis on it. Yeah. You know rockabilly on the piano huge star. Like straight up Mary's a teenager. And suspiciously this. Teenage bride is like murdered and there's all sorts of like incriminating evidence, which is basically like Jerry Lee Lewis at a bar he would get pulled over drunk driving all the time all the time like just like super abbreviated, high drunk. Plenty of. People that are like, yeah you were saying that he was going to kill this person. And it wasn't exactly. Like Kentucky back then. You couldn't get. You couldn't peg Jerry Lewis for this murder even though it's if feels pretty obvious to anybody with a computer nowadays but one time Jerry Lee Lewis who hated. Hated Elvis Presley because Elvis Presley was becoming a massive Sarah and Jerry Lee Lewis is like this guy ceiling people's music I'm way more talented in my wife's our way younger. He gets in his car and he gets like a handful of pills. He drives the Graceland and Graceland has these barriers and he just drives his car up the curb up the barrier like pass a security guard flips his car into graceland and cops are like, what are you doing here? He's like I'm here to kill Elvis Presley and. We love you man go home. He was there to kill Elvis Presley. Just couldn't get around to it because of like. The turnover accident that he was just in in Graceland. This deserves to be something that Chris Learning about in this very moment I know that he's searching for people with three first name's Peter. Tom Willis I know he's searching all over the Internet to Michael Thomas. Chris much more than you guys think Jamie Lee. Curtis. Wheel Patrick. Harris. Sarah Jessica Parker, there's a bunch I'm still still searching I'll get back. Burning topics. Does anybody else want to get US younger. If you didn't hate Mike Ryan and me before this. If you did not know what we were talking about. When we said the person who is leading the show is always going to get a good amount of the hatred because everyone else gets to be the Rodeo clowns Chris just sat out the majority of that segment Roy did ninety magical seconds Tony played the Roy of billy and once again, me and Mike are the asshole yeah. Jerry Lee Lewis married is thirteen year old cousin. There you go. Got It bang. Nine twenty five eastern going to be a low of seventy nine degrees in Hollywood Jeffrey Dean Morgan phrasing was bad on bang. Local. Hours on shrooms.

What do you got for Sarah here it's comes and Marlins I wanna hear she's feeling overly confident against your team while before Billie goes I am wondering, Sarah Do you feel confident enough because we are hoping to drum up a bad here between you and billy are you confident enough in your Chicago cubs here? I'm as confident as one can be for a team that has the lowest batting average of any. Team in history that this year's reds. which is to say, yes, because you're was outscored by forty one runs. So there's GonNa be a lot of weird playoff. You're I feel good about it I'm ready back. Don't worry about that run differential sir. I know Dan keeps telling you run for that happened in like two games those minus forty one runs it's been a weird season. I feel like me and you they're trying to pit us against each other right we're just That game I think it works a lot better to God's payoff this. Bet right because those the names on the marquee that people wanna see embarrassed if something happened not Billie Joe who cares about Billy Joel you know That is a lot of the you embarrassed on a regular basis so it's not as A. Also like to see more of it. Yeah. Turns so. Sarah because a blow Pablo is saying here the Marlins fans are looking for the media members that they can attack. So Pablo is calling the Marlins, the most unfamiliar human beings in the world, the MARLINS and and Jeff Patterson is saying that on the set of baseball tonight billy during commercial breaks they have contests where one guy will try name a Marlin and another guy trying name a Marlin and they end very quickly because no one on the set of baseball tonight billy can name a whole bunch of Marlins. That's you're going up against her mighty cubs with all. It's time to clean up the Senate baseball tonight then gets baseball experts in their you know what I mean. What do you do? You don't know the Marlins. This said by a guy who didn't know Liam. Hendriks still in the League and it's actually crushing for the as of their clothes are right now and thought that breezy is that The world. One of the best pitchers in the league. That's insane. The hendrix is still a thing. Is it like he an all star after not being a great starter forever, and now he's like this great closer. Yeah, it's a great story by the way speaking of Great Stories I. Appreciate that we've gotten this far into the interview without you guys bringing up the most notable incident and cubs marlins history because I just want to point out that people are so critical of cubs, fans for what was a very dark and ugly moment in our history, and yet they're repeating it by sending the unlimited number of gifts and photos of the gentleman in question whose name I will not because I think we should stop bothering him and leave him out of this and all the people who criticize us for being terrible to. Are the ones who are out bringing up every single second leave out of this never happened. We never have to talk about again you should really be a lot nicer to Steve Bartman you guys after you bruins his life and meet him anyway and he couldn't make a living. He had to go into witness protection for decades. You guys gave him and you thought Oh this is okay. We ruin this person's life forever but we gave them a nice championship bring all his forgiving anyone even talked guys. It's really a shame how you treated it really is yeah it's a shame that you keep bringing him up. It is gonNA make a bad. It is such a blight on their organization that they basically ran one of their biggest fans. The fellow fans they were piranha they were they were Cannibal Borana they just ate him up. Billy what else do you have for Sarahspain here you willing to go down the bank paid for Sarahspain today at two o'clock Dan Levitan. I've been holding it into law.

You guys wanted more Jeff Pearlman He was great. We didn't have enough time with him when we had him on last week and he was so great that. still and I both spent time with him to talk about different subject matters to gods is doing his career of books and Jeff Pearlman Jeff. Pearlman, might be the finest sports author that we have at the moment where it goes in and digs in on a team and it's a team you care about and it's a team. That's interesting. He makes good. And he tells interesting stories and he thinks his USFL book is the best of the books not those crazy cowboy teams not this book on the Lakers of Shaq and Kobe I spent very little time him on the Lakers you spent a good deal of time with him on the Lakers. You're right? I was asking him best story Brett Farve gunslinger. Book and he gave me a great Brett farve story. He's written some fascinating book. I cannot wait for the south each session to come out with Jeff Pearlman because it's fascinating and it's going to be a massive story line for this NBA finals. A the Lakers announcer got to wear their Mamba Uniforms for game two in game seven I if necessary, it's going to. Be a major storyline, the passing of Kobe Brian. The Perlman stuff on Kobe Bryant was so rich and deep and fascinating, and it was a marvel to hear him talk about how insecure Kobe was how how much of a bad team mate he was and the last time that there was a finals that felt like this Pistons and Lakers Shack and Coby pullman says flatly. Kobe went in to win the finals MVP didn't care about anything else just was going to take all the shots and the Lakers never forgave him for that and that's the last time we saw upset of the magnitude that you would see in this series. If the fifth-seeded, he can take out the two best players because the two best players don't ever get taken out when you've got the best players in the series basically the only time you lose this when it's Lebron Waden Bosch and when it's Kobe and Shaq, and that's it had to reconcile due to his tragic passing in that helicopter I accident along with his daughter the man Kobe Bryant eventually became. With the person that he was during his playing days and there were controversial things in Eagle Colorado and him not being a great team a posthumously he is now remembered as a great leader Right Mamba Mentality but Gordon Jeff Perlman's book not a great leader. Well, he was doing it the way by mimicking on purpose Michael Jordan. Stuff I got to be a poll. I can't do this without being bleep hole and it's GonNa be interesting to see how people consume him because the reporting is so deep on this one Stugatz and because he was doing it before Kobe died like this. Is Not Mallon tent. He's not trying to come out here and smear the dead right. He's just trying to give you a full chronicling of what a human being is as the mythology gets a hold of him like the because we will make and and he says, he was not dragging him through TMZ dirt. He says, no with the birth of his children came change with family man he poured himself into that at the end but the mistakes beforehand they are. They're pretty monstrous mistakes. One of them sounds like a crime just flatly that he was guilty of a crime the way that pearlman. Presents it and a crime that would have totally changed think about Scott would changed. Hope Bryant spent was on the magazine covers a racist as a rapist he was on the magazine covers for years, and he was able to reinvent himself and his image in Hollywood when he kept winning toward the end of his career at the end, it becomes about you know. The girl. Dad is what it becomes about yet. I don't want to spoil the interview, but there some jaw-dropping details surrounding private team plane and the Lakers knowledge of this incident as it was happening and subtle just make your jaw drop. So it's a fascinating interview I can't wait to put it out. What were the USFL. Stories that you guys covered because Perlman likes that books to God Every one of his books and I said, give me the best story about this topic USFL go gunslinger, Brett farve go, and he gave me the best story from each one of his books because I knew you cover the Lakers I want to get into some Jimmy Butler stuff because we revise these guys as we get. Deeper and deeper into the playoffs I want to do that before the show is over, but we get to Howard Bryant next he he wrote an article that you should read first of all, but we're going to talk about it next. The NFL's issued a statement on the steelers titans game. It is postponed played either Monday or Tuesday about that little Tuesday. Night Football. There you go. There it is God's hoping football teams get sicker. So he gets more games Howard Bryant with us now on ESPN radio. So I'm considered Whoa Qatar people say that I'm on the left, but I had never thought really Howard until recently about all the. Glorification of police officers that the movies do that rap that job in something that we're seeing now, all of us in America is something slightly less heroic than that. So Howard Bryant with us. Thank you for making the time. But why did you write what you wrote about nine eleven and can you explain to the people please what it is you wrote if they haven't had time to see it. Sure well, thanks for having me on guys I. Mean I think that really what started it was by the time you hit what happened with George Floyd. Then you just look at the entire Summer I. Think we just reached a tipping point I've been thinking about this in writing about this subject for years about how much nine eleven has changed sports nine eleven is the number one cultural shift in American American culture for our generation and when you look at what happened to sports I think if you're of a certain age, you you, you know you, we remember when they were games before flags and file overs and all of this other stuff, right? And so for the last twenty years, this is what sports is better. Now, all of a sudden, you see what's taken place with the players starting to take more control and you've got this, you've got this collision and so this entire summer I've been watching, and by the time we got to the nine eleven honoring this year on the one hand you've got black lives matter on the basketball court and the other hand you've got at the at the US Open. You've got the you know we support the NYPD while Naomi. Osaka's got a mask on with George. Floyd name on it, and then behind that the crowd you've better I'm sorry in the stands you've gotta cut out of of Eric Garner and images of black people killed by police and I'm looking at this and I'm saying one where arguing about politics and too can meet images. Coexist at the exact same time, these images are exactly diametrically opposed to each other one. One message. Exists because of the other message and so to me I started to step back and take a look and I was thinking that after twenty years maybe it is time or I actually do believe this time that the nine eleven era in Sports, not nine eleven honoring nine eleven itself. But all of the police glorification, the law enforcement appreciation nights how can you have black lives matter on the court? The same night you're? Going to have law enforcement appreciation night. I. Mean All of these different messages are smashing into each other and sports. I'm just asking myself what are we looking at and how to sports navigate these messages which are incomplete diametric opposition to each other. So explain to the people who might not know sort of what happened after nine eleven in terms of sports celebrating police officers explained to them the link between then and now. Yeah. Well, that was the other point was that I mean I lived in New York I was covering the Yankees on nine eleven, and so I remember all of that very, very specifically in very personally, and it is very interesting to me when you start thinking about what's happened in the nineteen years after nine eleven how it's essentially the honoring of those you know of. That Day has turned into in honoring of law enforcement went actually three hundred and forty three firemen were killed that day twenty, five, hundred civilians were killed that day. But yet in the in the twenty years after we've essentially seen more and more and more of police presence, and so the real question for me had been, how has it been over these past two decades that? Nine eleven has become almost completely synonymous with police and police only, and so I think this is something that the that the sports leagues have done. Obviously, it was an incredibly dramatic day. But if you go back and look the two, really don't have as much to do with each other singularly as as the the the marketing of it and the selling of it has. would. Lead you to believe that day was about a lot of things and it wasn't only police and yet police have been the thing that have been sold on sporting events throughout the last twenty years. Is there a change in how police have been viewed through sports? Like is there? Do you believe that that marks align of? Well, a lot of white fans thought of police. Before black fans thought this way but then something changed that day. Well the numbers the numbers have shown I mean there's there's probably no greater gap between black and white in terms of their viewpoint. Then how they view police whether favourably or unfavourably almost it's it's like eighty percent of of white Americans do police one way, and it's like almost in the fifties and the other way. So a this issue is the divisive issue anyway I, think it's just an in addition to what we've seen in the rest of the culture, but I think in sports the reason why it's so important is because Now you're seeing these leagues especially whether it's football or basketball you got an eighty percent black league in the NBA of you've protests specifically on this issue and no matter how much we want to talk about social justice and all the different words we try to use it really is a one issue protests they're talking about police. You can have love us and vote in education reform and group economics on the back of your jerseys. But all of this is really about, Brianna, Taylor and George Floyd and Eric Garner and the rest of it. So, Howard in your opinion in two thousand twenty can these two messages? Can these two things coexist? Lots going to be real interesting when the fans come back and I don't think they can I think that an and I do think that it was very, very clever sort of marketing experience over the past twenty years to really increase the presence of police here I think it's very appropriate and I think it's obvious in it's smart in twenty years is a long time. I did the class the other day where I was talking to smoke. So the kids over at San Jose State Twenty, two kids in that class I, think nineteen of them weren't even born on nine eleven it's twenty. Years it's been a long time I think that you can dial back all of the law enforcement appreciation I think if people say they don't want politics in their sports than dial back all of these messages and these messages things and I think that on nine eleven, you can on nine eleven so it can be a one day incredibly respectful as it should be. But the professional sports over the past if you go back and look at last year there I think one hundred, twenty, seven law enforcement appreciation nights over a three hundred and sixty five day calendar and that strikes me as. Inappropriate You should read the article. Okay. This is just a smattering of it and Howard Brian been doing a lot of good writing on these subjects and other subjects for ESPN for long time. So go seek it out because it's worth your time but REX Everett Ben is an American retired professional basketball player and social media influence and he wrote last night that these post-debate people have to fill time by breaking down that debate and quote marks. But they should all just sit there and silence arms folded while the Chiron is flashing quote trump refuses to condemn white supremacy then shouts out orders to a violent neo-fascist group our. How did you experienced that a proud boys stand back and standby? Would it be fair for me to say I turned that debate off after about twenty two minutes with these after after Biden called cloud and I was like, okay. If you guys aren't GonNa just start fighting I don't WanNa. Watch this. Yeah I it the whole thing it was it was like I thought I thought Chris Wallace was like he was like a wwe referee where it's like he just I've lost all control of the situation All of this has been what we've seen whether you're going back to Charlottesville. Whether you're going back. This is what it's been. This is what everybody has gotten used to I. Don't think that there was a whole lot that I saw last night other than I'm I'm a massive massive embarrassment for you know for this country. It's we we try to be the moral voice for democracies around the world and we look like a Banana Republic we really do look silly. I. Put you in a bad spot if I ask you whether this network Os Jemele Hill and apology. I think yeah of course, but you but. You would not be you if you didn't put somebody in a bad spot on the air. You. Nailed. Me Last time. You're like, Hey, where you been the last three years now that he is. Willing to let us talk about this stuff I'm like. Dan Why do you? Let. Let's just let's just say that. You don't want Howard but Howard I'll tell you out I'm sorry I didn't I didn't actually man to put you in a bad spot and like if you don't want to answer that that doesn't that doesn't reflect on you. Being. At this way, you look at what happened with the cabinet deal with Disney, Jim is going to be part of that. One hundred percent right this this country has been shifting and it's moving at such a fast brain. I always felt at the end of the day that and I. Still Think about this. What would have happened? How would history of teams if people had just left things alone and let it ride Know I think we all would survived a little better. Howard. Thank you. Thank you for being on with us and thank you for your reporting. Again, check out the story. It's worth your time. Thank you Howard. Yet my pleasure. Thanks guys. Today on ESPN daily, the NBA finals tip off tonight between the heat and the Lakers Brian windhorst details, Lebron's history with the heat and what we should expect from King James That's ESPN. Daily subscribe wherever you get your podcast. All right. This is a very big day in south Florida. Ford's we are excited billy as excited. He has reached the checking the weather portion of his post season fear the wind is blowing out twenty miles that's off in all bets are off. going. Out. Who knows what's GonNa Happen Now all bets are off I. Don't know what that means. Does that mean your met with Sarah? Spain I mean what does that? Okay I want to get a bet locked in. We're GONNA probably do that during the post game show because we got to figure out what is on the line but I also wanted to ask Tony and Mike if it was possible well, and if Billy's interested we're GONNA do another one of these twits streams for a heat playoff game here are he'd Finals game at some point during these finals. But I think billy people would really enjoy being able to watch the MARLINS post season game with you and Chris that's something that you'd have any interest in her will you? Would you not want to watch a playoff game that way? Well, okay. I I'm very boring as a person. So you won't actually enjoy that secondly. I was thinking about doing with Sarah because Sarah as a cubs fan. So you'd have people on both sides, but there's watching these games from rooftops across the street from Wig Wrigley. So she's not going to be available and Chris's on vacation. So we'll see. I mean is the thing I'm not an entertaining person. I'm a boring person and I'm not fun to watch games with because I'm miserable the whole time. But if you WANNA laugh at my misery, we see if we could figure something let's figure that out I think people. Well and I think they might enjoy pulling the surprise like this is a weird team a weird time. This is the time that the marlins will have a chance because everything is distorted and apocalyptic twenty mile per hour tornado fire winds are blowing out of Wrigley like they are in California and maybe you score nine runs as measures against a team that doesn't make a lot of contact today. Why? Don't we get in there with David Samson, we could dress it up a big. It's a personality. I mean we could do something like that for you bill things to do not just waiting around to watch a game on zoom with me a moment's notice. All right put it on the poll. It doesn't have to be this when it can be the next one might only be two though I. Might have to be either the next one, the today or tomorrow. Billing. So little faith in your team these people per mph winds Dan, all bets are off. You're going to be out my concern God's think you're going to be out after two games. This Day you've been waiting for for seventeen years billy you don't come to work on opening day. You're the last person in America who cares about baseball hating I said it might be that way could very well be because the marlins sweep them into right? Dan Did, you take that into consideration. That could be why I know if they sweep mature then we'd have plenty of chances to do this. You were saying their season was to trying to trick me with your semantics trying to make me a hater. I'm so confident that I'm willing to do a live stream next row. As. You're so scared billy. So what is it? Is it? Are you happy right now? Are you scared? Are you everything? Dan and I have such a bad tummy ache today and I don't know it's nerves I. don't know if I eat something that got me sick. I don't know if it's stress I. Don't know if I'm hungry. I. Don't know if I ate too much. I don't know what it easy. It could be an ulcer, it could be a kidney stone I. Don't know what's causing this but guess what I'm also not going to a hospital right now because that's a crazy place to be. So I'm just going to kind of hope that it's about this baseball game. We. Bad for UME. In Such a terrible way to live. Aid of the hospital and you're afraid of the sickness that sends you to the Osmond on your baseball team. The causes the sickness.

Local Hour: Jeremy Tache On Marlins COVID Outbreak

"Happy Tuesday, everybody. Is it happy though. Winding Yeah of course. Man Billy Chris Anthony, Roy guys. We have a special guest baseball guest today, I guess this guests is redundant there but Jerry. Shea of emissions GONNA join us. We're GONNA. Talk to him about what's going on with the MARLINS. Something awesome that does we're still wearing as of eight forty eight m while we're taping this? The results of the marlins second batch of tests to figure out if baseball's is going to be canceled because Rob Manfred, the commissioner baseball basically said. When. Asked, hey, recanted with season. What's going on with this outbreak? I mean I'm paraphrasing. That's not his actual quote. He didn't act aunt, but basically he's like. Yeah, you know we have. This might happen I. Think we believe in our protocols so. Yeah so before we continue. Go any further Roy. Let's play a very quick one part. This is awesome with Roy. Bellamy were not even going to ask you. This is awesome is I'm just going to say that we found out that Roy does an awesome cookie monster impression. Aw, let's go Roy. Whip it out. I'm not whipping anything like do your impression is. You know what I mean. Ma Ma Mama Mama Mama I'm doing as I. Try not to wait clear memorial. And? They give you a a pointer. No, you have to say cookie cookie cookie in athletes. Yeah, cooking cooking, Cook, eastern through see. Again again as I try not to wake up clear, I limited. I did not have Roy participating in that and actually. Cookie Monster. Say It's good Tuesday. Greg. Not here with us today, but he'll be with US later this week. Don't worry. We'll get to greg later this week. Tomorrow will Wednesday maybe we'll see who knows. Maybe five patriots have opted out. We play football. That's good for the dolphins. Good morning one of them Cam Newton. No, the biggest name I believe is to how dont`a hightower I don I it's. It's not Dante. It's dont`A is. His name ends with as like I was. Get that one a little weird, but yes, he's decided to not play. It got me thinking. Why would trevor Lawrence play this football season? Not to go like real sports topic hot out the gates, but like if you're Trevor Lawrence, Tony like. Are you playing the season? If there's like risk like you already know, you're the first pick. Why does he play? Yeah, he plays because he signed up to play Clemson and you know Dabo's going to be like. Hey, you gotta play. We all know dabbles track record of you know where he stands on a lot of different issues and I. Don't know if he's going to have much of a say in if he plays or not if I were. Just saying if called football even happens, we may not even St College football this year, and he might just get a pass and start working out like a like nick boasted number. He toured abdomen like the first or second game of the year, and said all right. I'm not I'm not coming back. I'm GonNa work out and just get ready for the NFL draft, and that seemed to be a pretty good Thing to do because now all sudden. He's a second pick and he's Ma. Su. Italy. I if I was Trevor Lawrence I wouldn't know. What's the reason? You're I. Know Now just you got a little dizzy there so I didn't know if you were breaking out but Maybe it's my internet, but I don't know Billy Billy. Did you see that the canes have one recruiting during quarantine? I mean okay. We'll see what that too, and they named a quarterback like three months too early, but hey man. They're winning the last week or so. The canes are wear King, right yeah the king, the starter and they've gotten a bunch of recruits that they've gotten a bunch of I. Don't know any of their names, but I just been reading that they've been winning quarantine recruiting. Was it a big deal that they were going to have Derek? King is the starting quarterback knowing that he only has one year left on his eligibility, and this was gonna via were they gonNa name, somebody else. quarterback and we didn't know about it. Didn't even realize that so. I mean this wouldn't count as a year of eligibility if they don't play right, but yeah, that stinks. They named the starting quarterback. All right good job. He was a starter. But I feel like Jeremy Tash. Shea is going to back me up and say that this Marlins team is good. I've been reading this his tweets and I feel like he's on my side that this Marlins team is legitimately good, but I believe he's also on the side of. Let's cancel the entire season, so it's tough, little a little balance, so he's not on your side well. The marlins good, but he doesn't think we should play in baseball. So what happened with Tate Martell Whatever happened to him I. Think he was playing wide receiver. Something right? You have a disease still on the team. So, yes, I mean. He hasn't transferred, but you. You can come out and confirm that Chris Cody I'm I. I feel like I would have seen that news and Sharon Williams. I thought entered the transporter, but he hasn't. Emerge from that portal right. Is he still in the border Cuarto floating around? Wasn't he thinking about F F I, you I saw. They ended up getting the Maryland. quarterback I think wants to. His brother went to Maryland or right before to his brother went to Maryland the Maryland quarterback came away. You didn't get to his brother know. What's a Maryland Yeah He's a TERP. It'll. I I know more about college. Problematic they weren't really keen on the backup, third string quarterback, for Alabama and where he was going to go, take out this tangle by A. Last name you know. How are we supposed to know? It's almost football season that's. Yeah. I got like ten people. Yesterday were mentioned say there was already a complete gay. Chris. You also have your fake announcement. Yes, we have. Yes. We have an also another correction. Neither the braves catchers have Govan. They just had. That seems impossible. Dude, look it up I'm telling you did not. They were tested. They had symptoms, so they thought they had it, but they ended up testing negative and they just seem to have a cold. Front That gets missed in this day of age of covert. It's like you can have a cold without having covert right. There's a lot going on with just like if you wake up with a sore throat, you're just like I can't go to work. On, Soto tested positive, and then five minutes later tested negative. They're like all right on back, never mind. Don't you have to have to negative tests in a row to be able to come back in any of the sports I? Mean that's what they've been talking about well. Yeah, assume that he took the test like two days apart or whatever, but like over the span of a weekend he wound from is going to be out and. Mind back to didn't have it imagine if that happened with the Marlins were actually the fourteen positives were fake. We use like the The Bootleg Version Law Greens brand for. The Pan out for us. I think I'm going to save my big personal announcement for the end to really get that. Tsa South Yeah. You should. Have you gotTA tease? Radio veteran we're. I. WANNA tease it.

New Episodes weekly where Donald Your podcast Jeremy. It has being crazy shit, Jeremy. It's crazy I mean my God ten. You Billy just. had billions. I was GONNA. Say you're crazy or wild couple couple of days here, but you know maybe you said it better than I would have. Yeah it's A. It's been the craziest forty eight hours of my professional life. That's for sure. It has been. Really wild to think about what Sunday and Monday were like for for the Miami. Marlins, that's for sure so as taping right now. It's nine o'clock in the morning. We're still awaiting the results of the second or Third Batch if you count the original positive test as a first batch test from the marlins. We don't really know what's going on with that. The plan from what everybody's been saying is hopefully they come back and there's not a lot more than their happened. You have to think that there. If. They do a second batch of testing at seven players. Two coaches test positive that they hopefully have nipped in the bud. We're not going to get yet another big batch of players, but who's to know because of what they were doing. You know who they came in contact with so if things go well today, and there's not another big batch of outbreak here. The plan is to then go to Baltimore and Kinda just resume the season. Bring up some people from Jupiter. Hope that if this did happen in Atlanta, which is what the belief is, even though now, right? I think that there reports that some of the burs catchers didn't have corona. They were just sick and. If whole mess, but it seems like if things go well today and the results that we get today are. Not Positive the results are negative. Then we're just GONNA continue on with the season, and then everyone will get better and move on right. Yeah, that's exactly how it will go just simple as that. I. The biggest key that you're talking about is were probably as recording this either minutes, or at least a couple of hours from finding out whether or not the marlins and or the phillies have a number of positive tests, because that's an element to all of this to right is the marlins had seven positive tests from players yesterday and two coaches after having three positive test today before one positive test two days before that, so that's growing exponentially and guys I. Know Actually talked about this and how it's been growing yesterday on on the local hours. So that's my overall concern as we do await. Await, these results is will what if it grows exponentially again and the remaining twenty is on the Marlins, all habit. Hopefully, that is not the case, and that is not to try to stoke fear or anything like that that just hoping for the best, but if the phillies have a huge spike that could also be an issue that we're waiting on is they have had to cancel their games with the Yankees as well and I think that will probably be the key to see whether or not baseball can continue the way that they've been handling their protocol because the of a number of Marlins. Way But they can contain it to just the MARLINS would be a giant shame for the marlins and all of the roster implications. Come with that afterward at least for Major League baseball standpoint. They know they've contained it to just one team and not spread doesn't happen just from playing on a field with other guys to were sick, and like you said the braves early claiming that there are two guys who had all of the symptoms have colts. They haven't tested positive so I. WanNa Kinda Talk to you about that, because obviously a lot of what we saw yesterday was finger pointing in the direction of the marlins right and. It's a shame, not because you know, we cover the Marlins we grew up. We like Bevere, but it's kind of a shame because you don't really know where this came from right and if you're a symptomatic, you don't know that you have it's so. You're not actually going out there and playing and I've talked to some people who have told me because one of the criticisms was hey, why did the marlins play? They shouldn't have. Have played that game from what I heard, they reached out to the Phillies, and they told the phillies. This is what's going on and the Phillies said we WANNA play, so they reached out to the phillies reached out to baseball, and it wasn't like this secret thing where they knew. Hey, we have all these guys. We're GONNA. Send them out there and play. anyways, because we don't want to lose the game, it seems like. Followed procedure from what. I've heard and you know this is one of those things that happen and. It seems like they got it on a road trip right from what they're saying. Everyone was negative when they were down here in Miami, and then they went on the road, and whether it happens being exposed to players that may or may not have been there whether it happened when they were stuck on a bus. It seems like we don't know exactly when it happened, but it's been traced back to that trip. Correct exactly and so look. It's possible that the marlins could have contracted this in Miami. That's more than possible because we've talked about the incubation period on cove for this entire time. Right? That's anywhere. Anywhere from two days to fourteen days. It's why doctors have recommended that nobody plays baseball for the next five days on that team. Regardless because you kind of need to find out who everybody's body reacts differently to this thing, we've seen that with the healthiest of people we've seen that with sick. People everyb- from people experiencing no symptoms to people passing away from this disease right everybody reacting differently. Everybody's body processes it at a different time, and so it's possible that say Farro who was the first. The tested positive did contract it in Miami, but did not show up testing positive until big on the road. And that's no fault of his own. That's a no fault of the Miami Marlins, and for that matter. That's of no fault of the MLB. The one thing that that is a problem is like you. There was a lot of blame on the Miguel. Rojas. Group text right on Sunday morning where the players are deciding to play on on Sunday. But the overall attitude for Major League baseball from the very beginning of all of this was. We've provided sixty players to your roster. If some guys get sick, you're supposed to persevere and play through it. Could the Marlins in their group chat as a group of adults have made a decision. Hey, too. Many of us have been exposed. We don't want to expose the phillies shore, but that would have been the complete opposite of what the mentality has been, and is supposed to be throughout this entire summer training and into the regular season. It's supposed to be you have enough players on your roster. You have three man taxi squad. They can come up if in when something like this happens in your missing a couple of players so. They went ahead and played lead to phillies. No, this wasn't a secret like you just said and really you know before the game I was talking about. MLB should be stepping in and making sure. This game doesn't happen, and that's what was remarkable about the wind to begin with well. That's kind of what I'm wondering I. Don't I. Don't know as much about the protocols. That should so asking you. How does that work because it shouldn't be up to the players to just say hey, we're not playing today, right? So who ultimately makes that called, is it? Management is if the team is at the League because. I know that they're getting a lot of flack for like saying. Hey, we WANNA play anyways, but it's Kinda like. Don't ask your kids what you want them to eat for dinner. You know what I mean that. The players are going to wanNA play especially if they've bought into this, you. You would think right. You have to have someone who is above that looking out for the best interests of not just the team, but the league saying hey, you really shouldn't be playing. I know that you guys WanNa play. I know that you guys don't feel anything, but we need to get through a round of testing to make sure it's safe for everyone. So what is the actual protocol because there seems to be confusion there? I think that there is confusion there for Major League Baseball What's really happened here and what's become obvious is that? It doesn't seem like. MLB really had a plan in action for breakout of this size this quickly. MLB's plan of action when one or two players was testing positive in a given day is hey, go ahead and make roster moves. Make your call ups. You've gotTa taxi squad if you're on the road. That seems to pretty much be their mentality and. That doesn't seem quite right to me and again there seems to be confusion on this to begin with everything we were told after the game we spoke with. Don Mattingly and Miguel Row Haas was mattingly said we never consider not playing, and we were never told not to play. Go said the same thing. They all spoke to each other to make sure everybody felt comfortable. You wanted to make sure that every single player had. as the leader of the team, he reached out to every single player and made sure they were all comfortable playing, and since nobody was feeling sick, nobody exhibited symptoms, and from what we understand, not one of the marlins tested positive that has been placed on the I. L. is experiencing symptoms. I don't know that or the next group, but those first four guys were not experiencing symptoms so at least from what we know, so. It that being said I can understand why the players who again have been told play through this. You have a taxi squad. You have sixty men on the roster for a reason WANNA show up and play. You know they're not all of a sudden after two days after starting one and one gonNa just out of the season. Because that's essentially what you'd be doing by saying. We don't feel comfortable playing today. Right I mean if if Major League Baseball, says that they feel comfortable with you playing and they're not stepping in and making a difference. Why would a player WHO's now gone? Gone out of his way to make the decision to play this season. Look it any differently on Sunday. And he did with the risk that was there on Friday or Saturday or the days before that there's in their minds. There's been risk every single time since they've stepped onto the field and I think it's important to keep in mind with the marlins specifically they literally play at a testing center in the Kovic hotbed of the world right now like they play at a huge testing center in their. They're becoming almost not numb to this because they've taken it very seriously, but. That's where they were at, and they somehow felt safer at home than they did on the road. So it just shows how uncomfortable it is to be doing all of this traveling, and why as everyone has spoken about in the last twenty four hours a bubble? Could have been more helpful than in Major. League baseball would have been difficult to execute. How much of a factor is the ball club's not giving service time to minor league players as a means of replacing. Those players are sick. Yeah I think that that is something that is really being taken into consideration by the marlins. This is a complicated issue for the MARLINS, because they added a number of top prospects who are just not ready to play Major League baseball quite yet to their sixty man I don't believe that they ever anticipated a breakout of this size and then continuing to play baseball right? Do you think anybody in Major League Baseball thought Oh if a third of our team get sick in the first weekend. We'll still be playing. Come the next week. I don't think anybody anticipated that so did the MARLINS anticipate calling up? Say Monte Harrison later this year. Yeah, absolutely you know. There are some top prospects that we're always going to play this season, but now if all of a sudden because of. Covid an outbreak, and really not wanting to continue to play. The marlins forced to start the clock on Hayes do Sanchez. Jj Days Sixto. Sanchez Eduard Cabrera. Even Max Meyer their first-round pick from this year I mean those are the guys that are on the back end of that roster. Jose de only like one thousand nine hundred twenty years old. These kids aren't ready for what about what about the victors we're going to say the victors. The victors are not on sixty man The victors did not make the sixty man so so neither victim victory. Mesa Victor Mesa junior would be called up in this scenario, but. You know. To be forced to start the clock I. Don't think that's something the Marlins want do at this point, so you'll see them. Go out and sign a number of free agents. They already signed Justin Shaffer and Josh D Smith. They already had josh as Smith so now they have two different relievers named Josh Smith. which is just a fun little fact, they're and. You know they're going to try to piece it together for the time being. If they have to play Wednesday in Baltimore and they're bussing. Who Ever is quote unquote healthy? Because again we've talked about the incubation period. We still might have guys that are bused from Philadelphia Baltimore. Who Don't test positive yet. Who could test positive later? That group, some prospects and a few guys who haven't played baseball all summer. It's shame for the MARLINS and I think if this was a different organization, who nationally people felt were supposed to be competitive. Maybe we'd be having a different conversation. What what are the chances? Jeet slices him up? Oh Man What I wouldn't give for jeter jorges facade to be the starting marlins on on Wednesday. I you know that. As the as the competitor that he is, we spoke to him last week on swings and mission is, and you can tell just from his energy to sit down. He was so ready for opening day like that guy. Still just really breeds baseball. It's so funny you could just feel it and so man if you don't think that there have been I bet that he at least made a joke to someone in the organization overnight. So that's at least been made for sure now. Now before he gets Anthony got something wacky with you Billy and Roy and Tony Mocks yesterday for saying that this Marlins team is good. Let's take away all the sadness. Let's pretend this all goes away and we get to play the season out Roy shaking his head. Maybe he didn't mock me but I got. These guys that this team? Obviously, they're not the house like Yankees, but this team is good Jeremy. This team would have been at least competitive baseball season right? This was a real Major League Baseball lineup, which is one of the? which is as big of a compliment is? I can give to what their lineup looked like the last number of years right? This is a major league baseball team. You. Look at how he's started. The season Brian Anderson's equality hitter vr off the top Magor row hosts had literally the best start of anybody in baseball, and they could hit, and that wasn't supposed to be their strength. Their bitching is supposed to be the strength their issue is the bullpen. The Bolton very lucky over the weekend. And that's how you come out to in one, but in sixty game season you know what getting lucky. A few times is going to lead you to having some success, so the team could have been at least competitive I'm not saying they would have been a playoff team by any means, but to and one against the Phillies and then four against Baltimore who's. I mean let's be real about what Baltimore Roster looks like right now. especially their pitching rotation, you could have been five and two after this week and feeling good. Instead, this is where we're at which is. Well, that's the thing about this season. That's so interesting and you mentioned it because of the expanded playoffs, you really only had to be a decent team. Yup, with a little luck to maybe sneak into the playoffs and you would assume that once the playoffs get started, you know the weaker teams will be weeded out, but you never know if you get exact. Andy out there and you could get him maybe twice in a best of five series, you could advance just because of. His performance. and. Remember. It's best of three in the first round needed one through eight minutes three-game series I mean the Marlins just took three from the phillies? Right? Who everybody would have said was the better team going in. Anything can happen in three games so. The shame of it is yeah. All they had to do was finish in the top half of teams in the National League and all of a sudden, some of the teams in the analyst and the Al Easter Kinda looking exposed right I. mean the Red Sox pitching rotation is horrific. Right the orioles. We know we're not all that great the Blue Jays are still young. The nationals didn't hit through the first weekend it. The phillies pitching clearly is is not exactly they're. The mets are going to mess so when I hear. I hear it. The MOM's making the playoffs just certainly. I'm certainly not saying that especially considering everything that's going on right now. And I don't think I would have said even after the weekend regardless of the positive tests, but all I'm saying that it's unfortunate because this team would have been more competitive than the narrative is going to be nationally about all of this and that's. That's disappointing for the guys who went out there and busted their butts from the spring through the summer and. Now a number of those players they're only on one year deals right? Jonathan VR is only supposed to be here for this season. Who knows what's going on the way? Not to shift gears here, but I will. Jeremy! You're my boy and I. Appreciate you coming on to the lower, but I do have to drop this bomb on you and I'm and I'm upset that I have to do it and I. Don't know if I'm going to catch a lot of flack from the boys on this, but. You know what Shits Creek not that good. No. How many how could say. Oh Anthony. Didn't get. It didn't make sense to me, not funny. I, Just. Did I didn't get it? You gotTa give it some character development time man. This is one of those shows the narrative of this show from where they take the characters from the beginning of the show through the end of the show, and where they're able to develop those characters into having their own little intricacies. Anthony got gotta give it a chance man. You gotta give it. How many episodes did you give? My wife was watching and I was watching kind of simultaneously. Maybe that way can't do it that way. Can't it's it's an active watch? It's an active watch. There's little jokes hidden in there. A little bit oaks, maybe like four or five episodes, but thing is I. Don't i. don't like that I have to watch the entire thing to get the show. Don't just give it the first season. I'm telling you I. I was with you I the first four or five episodes I was with my wife and I wasn't like I'm like this is funny and cute and cool, but they develop. I'm telling you like once you get into the second season. You start to really get invested in these characters but Jeremy I. Know what's happening here Tony Is. Is So Buji. He's like the roses before they lost all their money related like you much to them is so like he's like I could never live in this place. You're living this hotel like that's what Tony's thinking with all this, not why he doesn't love this show. It's a little too close to home. I'm just surprised that you're literally saying you don't get the show I know. I. Get It I. Get it. It just doesn't resonate with me for some reason on a deeper level I've been watching parks and rec that I had never seen some binging parks and REC. Now and I feel like I'd be more apt to watch that than watched. It's Greek I understand why that could happen to you. And the characters and REC or whim more surface level relatable. You need to give yourself a chance to develop to love those characters on Shits Creek, because once you do once you get really in there with more arose and you start, start to and what A. Crazy, person she is, and David and Alexis is relationships of all I mean I can talk about shits. Creek way more than I doc about the Marlins I love that show I thought that Moyer that character was so over the top the first season I was like to my wife I can't I feel like that's the one character. That's a little too much for me, but I'm telling you even heard Tony by the second season. I'm like I love it. Let's go you really I. Mean they become I really and I said this out loud to my girlfriend. The other day I said I missed the. The roses because it's been so long since I've watched. I felt like I missed them like like family members, which is maybe maybe more of criticism of myself in my loneliness during quarantine than anything else, but it probably is, but I'm willing to admit it here here on this show that I I miss them. It's only been a few months since I watched the show because that's how much you grow to love those characters I'm telling. Were you going to go to the live show I'm assuming you would have gone to live so when they were coming in Maine and ended up getting canceled, they was. Yeah, we're. A farewell, tour type, thing Yep. I was I was set to go. Actually do the one in Orlando. My girlfriend lives up in Orlando, and I was going to go with her and my little brother. WHO GOES TO UCF?

Yeah Yeah. We do ensure no. I'm not going to tell you today because we went so long with Jeremy. As the local hours being going long. It's actually not that long but I. Just WanNa tease this another day. Think Announcement wool. If I'm just going to. Go just to speculate you polled speculation. And not. Saying you're wrong, but I'm not saying you're right, but if you'd like to find out what my announcement is, you're going to tune in tomorrow because I'm not telling you right now. God knows what he's doing. Also Um. TRONA Tony I've joined Tony His. Quest, to become better in his thirtieth year. I've I've decided that I'm also going to start a diet and get right this year so that. We that was the announcement. No, that's just something. That's a side note. Side announce. Okay how long can I ask this question and I? Putting on blasts Anthony I'm just wondering. What's your guys like time? Frame on how long you keep balloons because I see the birthday balloons still there. Oh! Sadder than it did. Yes, no, it's still well okay. That's a good. It's a cellophane balloon, right? That's a good one of the shiny ones that one's GonNa. Keep for a while, so I'm wondering how long you guys normally keep birthday balloons and birthday cards birthday cards I keep way too long like I'll keep a card for my birthday for a long time and I don't know why have a sense of guilt about throwing it away. Some people normal people throw them away immediately, but I'll hold onto them. Out that day like. Read the card and then around that evening in the garden, do you? Do you let the people that gave it to? You see thrown away like okay your wife for example. If your wife gives you like a birthday card, you throw that away. Immediately I will I will admit to you that I will be subtle. I will try to not let her see through mobile. Yeah, they're in the garbage first opportunity. My wife's. On our desk like we have A. Like a desk whatever I put it on the desk and have it there for a little bit. The one that I got from my grandma on the mail I threw away. But. She wrote me a note so here does she wrote me a note on the inside of it, so she actually right on the card? How do we know? she lives by herself and I. Don't know anybody else would write it or. And and the the grammar wasn't great way. Titans hydrate him or like printed printed like I was hoping it was a typewriter. No, no, she's not a typewriter. Typewriter, but I threw that one away instantly. The one for my wife I kept and here's the balloon I went and got it. It actually has a clip. A bag back could click kind of thing. You can kind of put it anywhere, which is cool and again as I told you, it had a lot of a ribbons. Unnecessary Ribbons It's it's feeling you know what it's actually still pretty good at probably. Hosting maybe seventy five percents still full. Yeah, that's going to hold for a while I think. Did you want me to throw it out? Nah It's fine. It's a good look. Did you guys ever have an answer and uncle or a family member? That would send you cards as a kid. And wouldn't put anything because you know when you're like fourteen fifteen. In that range. You want twenty bucks ten bucks five bucks. It's just fun like something something in there. I used to have an aunt 'cause obviously as your older wants something. I'm thirty three thirty two now so I. Don't expect her to like now. A card with nothing in it is fine, but as a sixteen year old. Did you guys ever had you? I'm thirty. Two aren't eighty seven. My thirty-three now. Thank you, thirty three Bro and life, right and how? Can Kill as they hit me. It just hit me I'm thirty three hundred feel now i. mean you just lost a year? Like that. I'm legitimately like. People forget how old I am like. I thought I was thirty two. This birthday that I had like two months ago I just didn't have any recollection of ask. How do you think you are? She'll say to Graceland. How old AM I! Three. Three. Close Thirty, oh. Yeah I did the math twenty twenty minutes nineteen eighty-seven is is thirty three, so you guys never used to get cards from family members with nothing in it, and you just throw it right away because it's like. Why Am fifteen years old? Give me ten bucks. Be Doing. You guys had the cheap aunt. No, yeah, I mean Yeah I. Think we've all. Forbidden Their bill but I don't want to call her out on. I don't WanNa see. Like are they avid lower listening, okay and no. Impact is listen, you know actually had an aunt. Pat I have an an. That's the one who did to me. That's looking at me right now. Yeah, an pat never put anything in the in the car. She was a ruin my aunt. Though I guess she's more, my mom's and so I guess that makes for my great aunt that. How do you feel about aunt I want? I. Go on, because I meant. I go, aunt. Ruining like know Your Business Wow. Oh there! It is good way to end the show. I know. Hope. Hello this is your apartment I need some favors from you.

Hour 1: Its A Wrap

The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz

31:12 min | Last month

Hour 1: Its A Wrap

"This is the Dan Lebatardshow with this to got spot CASS. Football is in chaos and falling apart. Let's move on. So the Miami Heat lose last night. And I think something that's interesting about. Basketball and basketball analysis over the last ten years really ushered in with Lebron? Is that the fan can be so much smarter than the fan has ever been if the fan cares to get informed about the way that these games are being studied by people who really know what they're watching you also don't have to be you don't have to be in you and Greg Cody like you know less information with your broadcast. You don't want to be informed. You don't want math and charts and you. Want things like this ESPN DOT COM story that explains the victory because of Lebron's motivational texts before the game must win during that. Yeah, and so you can't analyze it that way if you want. But with the advent of moneyball and Michael Lewis and the Oakland A.'s exploiting market inefficiencies, what you've seen is the study of sport has gotten smarter finally, football coaches have caught up now they're all basically going forward on fourth in short in their own territory like a, they're doing it a great deal now because. They figured out that they were doing it. All wrong way basketball is figured out when they were going for the inefficient two point shot the better play is the three point shot but here is some Alah analysis from last night's game. So you see, for example, when someone says, why is Jimmy, Butler not being more aggressive why isn't he playing more like he played in game three? Why is he passing so much from under the basket this is from Kirk Gold's Berry Anthony Davis was the primary defender on eleven shots against Butler on Tuesday per espn tracking after he had defended just four total shots from Butler in the first three games of the series Butler made three of his final. Twelve. Attempts that's winning time, and that's the time that we talk about. Wait a minute the Lakers of the two best players on the floor. Correct. That's winning time life five that series swung last night in those five minutes. Butler made three of his final twelve attempts including going one for seven. With Davis, as his primary defender of Butler seventeen shots fifteen were defended by Davis or James now yesterday on the show and this one's interesting stu gods from things that. Might feel a little imperceptible because I'm guessing most heat fans watched what Bam out a bio did last night we're like that was good for us that that was energy and spirit that is what we needed. But Stan, Van Gundy told you before the game their offense is going to suffer because Bam is going to limit them some offensively and what it is that they're doing they will rebound while and they will be better defensively, but they are going to. Suffer. Offensively without biggs to pull Anthony Davis away from the best. But you're right. It's a hard thing for fans to wrap their head around what you're about to say because ban was six of eight last night had fifteen boys play. Well okay. But played well but listen to what I'm about to show you for those who think that he played well, he did play well in the circumstances played good defense rebounding but listen to one I'm going say here offensively. This is from the Rigor Record Dan Devine la held the heat to forty two point seven percent shooting as a team with just eighteen assists lowest total of the postseason for the bubbles. Most past happy team that's eighteen assists with the ball movement gone in Games two and three. The freewheeling five out attack that Miami had found in the absence of Bamut. A bio had torched the Lakers to the tune of one hundred, twenty one points per one hundred possessions, a rate miles above what the very best offense in the league mustard during the regular season. In. Game Four. One, hundred, four point four points per one hundred clip. Worst than the league worst warrior man I reject the premise it's not like Bam on a bio ball stop or he's a huge part of the offense that probably has arguably the best ball movement in the entire MBA Kelly Olympic would have been a key. That's what sandy was probably arguing Kelly clinic was out there. He was not good. The other guys were not good. They generated open looks. Look. Olympic. Was Out there for twelve minutes. He played a lot more minutes. He would have played more was performing I tend to side with you on all of these discussions because but that kind of even to me Mike that make sense the problem with it is it suggests that the heat are worse with Bam on the floor. As grace it assists are dependent on people making shots, Miami Heat. We're not making agreed and the heat shot to of eleven on wide open threes and game for two of eleven wide open threes. and. Just. So you understand this is not saying that Pam played poorly, he defendant Anthony Davis this from Simon Smith, he defendant and if Anthony Davis for twenty one possessions in Game Four Davis was one for seven for three point but that game tilted. because. In the last five minutes of the game who closed that Game Lebron closed at gave him in Pope Jimmy Butler was trying to close the game and he kept running into Davis and Lebron and Lebron does carries them the entire fourth quarter and then Anthony Davis does what he was signed to do give me some relief so I don't have to be the one. Doing that, please finish this for me there to Blair players are better than Miami's best player Lebron made so many winning plays that you don't really recognize times it's the brilliance and genius of Lebron's game. It's not just a two threes where he stares down at the floor and just shoots it from thirty feet and they go in it is the screening Zephyr Rondo to. Get to the basket. It's the Passy made the pope in the corner who was wide open for three just winning plays. He made so many of them down the stretch last night. It's really hard when you when you peel away the layers, you have to fifty percents, shooters to very efficient superstars and you give them two chances to make bucket on one end of the. Of the court wearing crunch time, they're going to make one of the two when they're not doing that they're going to get the offensive rebound and pass it to the guy that Dunkin. Robinson's on Casey and Rondo drive to the basket with Duncan Robinson. All she wrote we told you before Lebron at thirty five is averaging for these finals twenty, eight eleven and nine. For the finals at thirty five years old and that game last night swung. At Ninety to ninety, I believe the score was and while Mike rejects the premise Miami was worse offensively that game was dragged into the mud and it was a less offensive game when when your rate of scoring is less than the warriors were in the warriors were the worst. Some of that has to do with missing two of the eleven wide open or missing nine of the eleven wide open three I mean in this series, the two games that Bama's played the entire game games. One and game for which you just pointed out I mean they have less than one hundred points this but Bam also anchor their best defensive performance of the series degenerated. The open looks entering that fourth quarter Jae crowder Dunkin Robinson Tyler hero were shooting one for eleven from three. They need to make the open looks. They haven't had the game where the other guys boost them to a win. It is fascinating to me. It really is fascinating to me that he series can swing from feeling To feeling hopeless, and basically the swinging point is that the better shooting team was worse on this night from three and when the game was being decided at ninety to ninety Jimmy Butler, came down the corner three the most valuable shot in that sport he took it open. He missed it. You don't want him taking it. He doesn't want to take it. He doesn't WanNa be shooting threes and then on the other end of the court off of that rebound what happens is. Lebron does what you're talking about, which is find the correct person the Miami Heat are like we will lose and we will lose fine if what beats us is Marquee Morris and Kyle Kuzma and caldwell-pope, and in that corner, caldwell-pope made the same three that Jimmy Butler had just missed and if they do that again ten times I, don't know how it plays out different. It's a maker Mislead Dan. Thank you, Stu gods, that's all you need that in the Lebron text message. Breaking news out of the NFL The Washington football team is making a change of quarterback replacing Dwayne Haskins with Kyle, and that's the big news the NFL. Breaking news is brought to you by linked in jobs build your winning team today go to Lincoln, dot, com slash sports I feel like the pandemic is probably bigger news than Dwayne Haskins the being benched. Now, what if they went with Alex Smith instead of Kyle? Alan would that be the bigger news that's part of the news join ask has been knocked down to the bottom of the depth chart. Alex Smith is now the backup. Yeah. That would appear to be over incidentally like that's not you come back in and out with a young quarterback like they seem to have made their decision in Washington in like Oh that that didn't work in drafted by that staff they're not tied to him so they can easily pin their problems on the quarterback. You're right. That is the story Alex now, one play away. Can he play? Can he physically get out there and play and he's there number two quarterback I, hope. So I mean he shouldn't I. Wouldn't. If I were him, I'd have a hard time putting them out there I was his coach that e sixty makes me feel like he shouldn't be doing it but he doesn't WanNa stop pursuing that dream. All right. So one of the things that we are going to end up talking about today is sort of the general sloppiness. Of what has happened in football even though I'm not totally sure. That it's fair under present circumstances to be criticizing much of anyone. When what you're talking about is something a sports league hasn't seen too much of before an airborne virus that is still confusing us and penetrating the White House. So I don't know how fair it is one you get football taken away from you to shake a fist and say, why didn't they plan this better? Why didn't they do a bubble? Why didn't they remove these players and all this staff from their families for four straight months to play regular season football games because we've seen above A. Work I understand if that's the criticism you're filing because chaos is now descended on the sport here and I don't know how they're going to fix it and I don't know how they could have planned to better. Fix it given that I don't believe the players association was going to agree to four months away from your family in a bubble like vouching recommended But what the hell do you do now I the reason I asked the question Mike during the break for some reason was saying he's going to keep his nose to the grindstone and his. Ear to the ground and he was he had blinders on right because he was zoning in on whether or not. We should get Diana Roussy need to react in real time to what do you know what can you tell us? What's the NFL plan nobody knows because the NFL will not be transparent about this the NFL will not tell us anything about what their plan is and then gets mad when we assume that there is no plant I'm glad you brought this up. It was an odd response to a simple question. It was me asking Mike. Hey Do. You want me to ask, Diana Rossini. To come on and then I'm GONNA, keep my ear to the ground. What is that? Is that one people doing oil speculating in the eighteen hundreds? Is that why ears to the ground we've got a very fluid situation in the NFL I don't WanNa burn up Diana Rossini appearance when fifteen minutes from now there could be more news on this front. Dan. All right. So now the Patriots seem to have a problem right? Because we talked earlier this week I've got the worst type of problem it just affects their best player. This is what I'm going to say about the Patriots first of all the Patriots were unusually had and I want you to marvel at the fact the Belichick had mahomes at six three at halftime time the other day. But the Patriots entered the league with more players opting out for this reason for they didn't want to be neither one of those huddles for this reason than any team in the sport keeping your ear to the ground originated in the late eighteen hundreds people literally would put their ear to the ground in order to hear for off hope beats footsteps or other indicators of something or someone approach. Oil. That it was a native American in origin. All right. So can you tell me why someone puts their nose to the grindstone I'm on? So but Mike says ears to the ground is nose to the grindstone and he's got his blinders on because he wants to understand what's happening in football but the Patriots are in this position, which is the worst of the position so far. Unless the titans have to start four fitting actual games which I guess Rossini says, is the possibility now I can't imagine that is a possibility but the forfeiting of games is evidently in play the Patriots get punished by having to go to Kansas, city because their most important player has come down with the virus and so in that moment there at a competitive disadvantage there punished for handling the break well while the titans. Got More rest titans didn't have to play the Titan ten an outbreak, and they were rewarded for having the outbreak because we're not yet forfeit territory. But the Patriots had to go on the day of the game. They had to fly in two different planes players who were in contact with Cam Newton players who weren't now it's being said that Stefan Gilmore. Player of the year was in a lot of contact with Cam Newton. But he initially tested negative and extensively tested negative several times on the way to Kansas City, and on the way back, they all had to be tested. The Patriots did before they get back on the plane and went back to Boston what. So now and I don't know when it is whether it was incubation period I'm not a scientist, but now there are a lot of videos of. Gilmore breathing all over Patrick Mahomes, hugging him and all sorts of things and people are jumping to conclusions. I don't know if Gilmore tested positive after you got back to the facility or after he went home or in some other way. But now it looks like the Patriots have an enormous problem on their hands because now they've gotta keep testing and retesting everybody while minus two of their play two of their best. Players and they're already playing fast and loose with certain rules even in this company if I came into contact with Stephen, Gilmore or my backup quarterback in Kansas City, I wouldn't be able to come to work for fourteen days. They got rapid testing they get daily testing by now you just sort of hold your breath four Patrick mahomes because someone in that quarterback room has it i. hope he was holding his breath. Stephen, Gilmore Mike. I went to Baltimore for a weekend and had the quarantine for fourteen days. I couldn't leave my house for fourteen days. We know STU gods. Thank you. Did it on purpose go again we didn't even know the back channels have gone back to me that you already lining another one listen as a trip to Chicago, a weekend wasn't looking to miss any wartime and I did the responsible thing by asking if I do this, we'll have to quarantine for fourteen days. Unfortunately, they said, no, you have to take test. Now I think a rapid test when I get back responsible. Trip is in flux now. On the air back to you know I think Stugatz is gonna I think because he's tired because we are working a lot around here because we are doing twitch broadcast I absolutely think that's do God's might scheme his way into another fourteen day quarantine or get the virus on purpose like just start wandering around the White House at go visit the Patriots go spend time with them also very confused because while I actually believe Gaza's Lacrosse League has nfl type resources given some of the given the general region in which this Lacrosse League is happening and what I know about Lacrosse. I don't know why they're playing these games. But if we had a quarter for every time, he told us our guys don't worry lacrosse season ramp and down I'm here. Caught word guess was ramping back up in like two weeks. Lacrosse. Yeah. Of course, a million travels. He's going back to hot states how stayed after hot state? You don't know that yet it's the fall season and we still have to play these games. Many of my girls have you know agreed verbally to go to certain universities but some having and so he's off to play for those particular girls do God I don't know where I'm going yet. Mike. I will let you know we'll see if they're Lloyd's you just need to know it's all a scam. True around here Dana Rossini doesn't think that stugotz actually went to her wedding Chris Cody's confused about that. We don't have an answer about that and Stugotz was just asked to do something a few minutes ago and his response was that he has a bar Mitzvah in the middle of the night about Mitzvah bought Mitzvah in the mail of. The middle of the night, the ceremony starts early at a bod it starts at four, forty, five. Okay and then I it's my nieces Bat Mitzvah. Now because of cove it everything's with thrown off. So it's a very small gathering twenty-five people at the temple twenty five people back at the House I. Don't know if we'll be done in time for me to be a virtual fan game five on a Friday night. Okay. Okay. So that's the middle of the idea. What if anything I just said? I'm pretty sure it's not because of the number of details. That's what you don't even have any you sort of you sort of shake your sausage fingers at me, and then just like train bury me in mundane details to cover up you're. Like. That's the. Twenty five here there twenty-five there. Let me throw a couple of words at a plume of smoke bend over and then steal twenty dollars off the console. Hold. That's not your ass. Some ads. Very, real. The very real possibility of sue guides working from home for like the next month and a half stop these I think I say stop it. Testing predicted this ended already happened wants. that was a bad feeling yesterday for both local teams, a heat and the MARLINS we'll get back to billy and the marlins feuding with the braves and Chris and a second but first, here's Christine Lisi to finish up. And finally, the sloth is the only mammal that doesn't Fart who knew. Too Lazy. I guess. I. Thought Yes too lazy to Fart I'd Sloth I thought you were going after day. So we all do we all are bracing for a curveball. You really did throw a curveball. Right yes. You can't hear really good changing speeds you're crafty veteran pitcher. So. Here's what we've got happening in marlins braves this year he starts and a Kunia hits a ball right I've I've just never baseball so funny now in terms of how many strikeouts and how many home runs you get like it's just amusing the shifts everything is distorted out there. All this shift is the worst part I hated bought raise Yankees yesterday there were thirteen hits, twenty four strikeouts. The Yankees struck out eighteen times of those thirteen heads five of them were home runs. Stanton is doing nothing. To. A home run that's God's described and thought he was being factual as six hundred and six feet. That was s VP said it was still in his stuff. So okay. So you're you can't do anything original. Even I was amazed at six hundred and six eight I mean as VP and standards Dave our way six, hundred, six feet. A Kunia though felt like he had his to the opposite field as a leadoff man about six hundred and six feet to start that series, and then soon thereafter they plunk dim although it was the second pitch at Bat. It didn't feel like a playoff game. You would do that on purpose but can you thought it was on purpose? He says, they hit me because they can't get me out and so. Help me out here was Sandy Alcantara last name billy because I always get it wrong because it's got four as in it, and I never know how Latin name is Americanized, can you help me with his name? Please it Sandia Contra are. All right. So here he is talking about a Kunia If, he come into me get him. You know those might wild. If you here ready to fight I'm ready to fight to the motto. and he's he's a big man like he throws very hard and he just he is large and substantive, and so here's Don Mattingly talking about the idea that Cooney after again, hitting a ball to right center field opposite field a leadoff man has never had that kind of home run power and now every team in the sport has leadoff man who can do that. So here's Don mattingly talking about him being hit a few innings later I knew he didn't hit him on purpose you know with the Kunia he's a guy you got it. You can't just lay the bought over the plate. And obviously, that I looked at it was it was a good ways in but he's trying to run the ball off the plate near or rent it started on a plate runoff. And got got further out than what he wanted. So are further in than what he? And now we're GONNA go to sound of Brian Snicker because bills get a few words for this Guy Billy's already done with this guy, this poor Atlanta braves hapless Atlanta braves manager has no chance against the wrath of billy hit a long home and got hit with a ninety seven I mean it's it's my reaction one. Good. So you know I, it was unfortunate I'm sure he will I guarantee the kid one trying to hitting but you know in that situation I think. If you'RE GONNA go in you better, you gotTA. Make sure if you go in, you don't hit him I mean and Comes to a point where you keep digging that kid that you're you know that mill, the plates been taken away. So You know it was just. Tapping into much to that boy. Like I say you gotta be careful going in after somebody hits a homer because you might hit them and you know and. It's just you know you better be good going in and and not hitting them after homer. Billy Megan the hour skeptical face. What do you have for our man sniffs? It wasn't on purpose and by the way wise about Ronaldo Kunia junior spiked. Miguel row has its second base on. There was like two feet off drive the tank amount close. please. Enough of this guy tough guy he wants to fight he's a crybaby everybody knows he's a crybaby what happened after he got hit he struck out twice got an infield single. He did nothing did nothing because he's a crybaby and sneaker by the way what an embarrassment is family the way he was behaving on that field yesterday at sixty plus years old I'm sure he was going around having a temper Tantrum I. don't even know what kind of organization condones that there was an HR department he should be suspended for his behavior. Around temper tantrums. True he's so right about that. In one other workplace are you allowed to? Like that without it being sent up to human resources say we've got a problem with ned in accounting. Imagine if someone did that in the Middle Office, just started running around all huffing and puffing yelling and I'm sure you know he had his mask on but still I'm sure he was yelling. Waving his arms around and doing this and that. And then what happens when you're talking like? Well, it wasn't on purpose like, well, what was this? What were this? Free to walk out right after it happened, you give it a thumbs up. It's fine. It's okay. It's okay to worry about it's fine. Let's just keep Blake baseball and then Brian's at Aurora. News from the Dan Lebatardshow nation someone has just hit us up on the Dr Pepper twitter feed a fan. At the underscore a fam- rights is no ongoing define Mike Ryan for calling the reigning Defensive Player of the Year Stefan Gilmore Stephen. Gilmore be myself up. You do it. Two dollars. So. This is from Amino, Hassen, via Tom Hammer stroh this is how we get information around here it is handed from one person to the other mean has sent a Tom Hubbard Stroz tweet Thank you by way to everybody who watched the game with US last night we're consistently overwhelmed by the following of this audience the loyalty of this audience, and so we try to give you things like that. That are a little too intimate many people think I was laying on my bed all evening in a seductive pose. It was my couch laying on all evening in a seductive pose. And no Hacen was on there and his basketball analysis is fun to get in real time. and what we had with Tom. Haberstroh. He is saying the heat offense rating to Mike's Point with Bam out of bio. Last night on the court it was one fifteen point nine off the court. It was seventy four point two sometimes it is as simple as we sit here and go back and forth heat and say Lakers insects Stephen a Smith is saying Lakers and six, but if Lebron doesn't win this series, it's GonNa impact his legacy sometimes it is as simple as are you making your open shots or not? That's it. That's why fans get so distracted and annoyed by the numbers we spent so much time trying to figure out better with band better without Bam note the image shots last night they had a tunnel open looks they usually hit them or hit them at a higher rate. They missed him last night who for eleven, open threes, and so one of the things that happened during the game though and I always find this interesting so. The broadcaster over many years because of the emotion business because of how this works in sports where you were just you're at a heightened state we've talked before like even when your kids were born, you probably didn't jump up and down and yell at a television sports brings out strange things in people and sometimes when your. Hostile or when you want your viewing experience to better, you take it out on someone like Mark Jackson. You take it out on the broadcasters on the list of the most hated people in sports to gots. If they were to go names, it would be brought a lot of broadcast shares. A lot of people would give us broadcasters and so last night Mark Jackson really got people mad when he said what feels like the totally nonsensical in a dramatic moment saying. A hero is more than a sandwich because of the play on Tyler Heroes Name and people just thought it was awful. It's not even the first time. He's done it but they thought it was awful and Cornball, and they just dragged him on the on the. Internet. For rising up in a big moment as tyler hero tried to make a shot and then did and saying a hero is more than a standard. Not, like Mark Jackson thinks he killed it on America does not know but first off, he's right a hero is more than a sandwich. You would agree right when you get a hero, it's way more satisfying than a sandwich Poggi is also more than a sandwich, but his name is not Tyler Oga. Do it if his name was Tyler Hogan. A. We agree though that a rap is less than a sandwich, one, hundred percent is it a snack? Wrap is less I don't agree with that a substantive rap put it on the Pole Guillermo at lebatardshow is a rap less than a sandwich and as a hero, I feel like you guys are doing that just because of the pita bread and the saw that's exactly why we're doing it. What do you mean you could do with a rapid can be substantive again. We know what I'm not. Kidding me off putting on a spinach wrap extra bacon and extra Mayo. Rat if the rap in these the color of Tortilla if it's green if it's orange, get that rap outta here needs to be the whitening old fashioned Tortilla wrap up I'd rather eat Saran wrap than spinach. I. Like. Spinach. Trump's. Thank you. I Tony Thank you Tony. With Tony I appreciate ally dumb. They love to come after me I said spinach wrap. I'm just talking off the flight I'm sorry. Rap, I'm sorry. Go with a traditional rap I just went with the green rap because it's colorful listen in this order right? We all agree even as Tony says, he likes a good rat. We agree it is sub sandwich than rap right? Of course. You guys are so willing. To attack me at every turn. Yesterday on the Zoom Stream because I was showing too much leg. You guys asked me the question Dan are you wearing boxer shorts and then I tried to answer for a good ninety seconds and you guys were just ripping me the entire time. The entire time you were unabashed though we were just trying to call your attention to your short situation whether it be boxers. When I'm watching the NBA Finals, I liked address like John Stockton played. It was the situation and the fact that you were laying on something that was out of the revenue. I. Thought it was a polar bear polar bear skin. Yes. I like to wrap myself those. When watching, NBA? Patty recipe. You're putting out last night laying flat on your back on dead polar bear as a as a cat crawled all over you. All, your junk was damn near hanging out. I dispute that I. Do not agree with my junk near. Damn. Near hanging out, I, want to get back to the spinach rattle discussion though I mean they have it on the TV right now, the ratio of five to pants is not. For you guys wonderful not in it for you. Did seem to have good air circulation down there. So thank you for joining us on twitch. Wasn't that bad was it really that bad. About it. I look at this guy. You know what? It's just once upon a time that worked in television show him skin. It doesn't work for you. Really. Thank you. I'm stunned. Hear you say that I thought that you would just be drinking me up with Leering is.

The Fox Sports Radio Talk Radio. This is straight out of AENGUS. With the voice of big s your host rj? Bow? Paul. To serve. The pre-game show America has always wanted. Her. From the PGA Strip. EARS RJ. How You heard it I'm rj live in Las Vegas live on a Wednesday live on two hundred, twenty five FSR stations across this. Great Great Nation in Studio. Monday Wednesday. Friday Steve. Fezzet. He's like you're packs you gotTA workum. But not every day sports bettors listen for the money being sports fans listen to no more than their bodies. We're pros, Qisas, Joe but I like him Jonas stocks in La. Always good to be here are John Yes we are just a day away from the start of the NBA season NFL players opting out seemingly left and right. But what is the Vegas lead here on this Wednesday? I'm GonNa go with the Los Angeles dodgers being ball incident because I, think it hearkens very Clearly. All the way back to the world series that Hong Kong metal I guess he's players care about it. Yeah. That's right. Dodgers Pitcher Joe Kelley was suspended eight games manager Dave Roberts one game following last night's game in which Kelly buzzed. Alex. Bregman taunted Carlos Correa of the Astros leading to the benches clearing afterwards we don't want taunting if we can avoid it now it's interesting. It just goes to show you how the way that the facts are framed even just adjectives and Hint he says he buzzed. To me that sounds innocent like a little kid would come by and go. And Buzz, your something. A IMAGINE In an attempted being ball to his brain could have been another way to say it right and. I think Joe I mean Jonas Finale. Except the way he saying it right but the reality is. Would you know especially a guy that breaks windows when he warms up in his backyard? Is He really in a position to say this ball's GonNa. Go One mile or a mile an inch or a couple of inches in one direction or the other. Right so. Imagine. Because my understanding is Jonas and. I guess. My main takeaway here is an matters. What angle you're looking at because I think both angles make a ton of sense and no matter which angle you're on don't invalidate the other one unless you truly believe it's not valid. So let's start with the idea that this could lead to. Serious injury I mean you can die from getting hit by Baseball Dad's be but let's just say someone's in a coma for three weeks. And you know there are, let's say limited after that. Does anyone here could make the case that isn't one of those. Hey, you might poke your eye out throwing the football around type it's. There's a one in thirty chance. If you're throwing harder, someone's had to send the really bad's GonNa Happen. I'm just throwing that number out I. think if anything that's a little low does anyone disagree? No. All right. So now we're talking about potentially life changing Oh three percent chan much better chance that being star this I. Hope It's good. There's a much better chance at IBM ball would cause life altering damage than catching the coronavirus. Good. Yeah because the virus now is unless I'm wrong he's down to one percent. Less than one percent that far less than one percent on the debt side. But even let's say lingering issue we're not sure of all that. But we all just agree there's about one in thirty chance of lingering issues if you throw at someone that hard at their head, which is very different. Now. I'm not saying that it wasn't justified. I'm saying let's understand that if that guy if Kelly had gone in and infected someone with the corona virus on purpose sneezed on them. No even worse like hit him with the needle. You know with karate he see this, poke him in the chest and said Krono virus and for life. Right. Well, I don't know. I he might go to jail. But what we're saying is the actual person getting being would rather be poked with the coronavirus. Does anyone disagree with that no. No. We'd be talking about this mighty differently. Wouldn't we? Now. Let's go to the other side. I'm RJ Bosa Vegas because I believe it's equally valid. These players we sat at the time. Baseball was making a big mistake by not punishing. Houston worse. And the reason being you're either going to invalidate what everyone's playing for. The end goal the championship at the Holy Grail. Rosebud. No, it doesn't ma- hunk of metal. So if you do if if that ends up being the conclusion. You lose your baseball at that point, the whole purpose of your being diminishes. But isn't that what you do when someone cheats for in a very tangible way I mean it's not cheating in some baseball accepts this. This was knew this was different. This was above and beyond. And in the player sit and say, okay, what's going to happen? And effectively nothing. In fact. Joe Kelly's eight game suspension which came out recently is. Correct me if I'm wrong much much much worse. than all the players in in Houston combined suffered. Correct facially right. So on one hand. You got people cheating for multiple years to win multiple world series. and. The Guy One guy from one team that through at Houston in retaliation. Gets bigger penalty bigger consequence punishment than the entire Houston wh the tower Houston player roster. Wow doesn't that show you why the throw happened. What do you think John? I. Don't agree with Joe Kelly's actions I'm good with the suspension issue with whatsoever he wasn't on that team that got cheated Joe Kelly was on the Red Sox the following year they were also rumored to have cheated against the. Rumors. Okay. But but they also were investigated and they were punished a little bit by Major League baseball because there was cheating scandals and Kelly was on that team. Why is he the guy to throw it? Anybody's head? He had no involvement with either of those teams. Happen. That's an interesting point because he wasn't the most obvious one. Either it potentially makes him the hero of the story if it's adjust action and I'm not saying you're wrong it's not but my understanding is. that. You're in La Jones. The dodger fans are very happy with. Them. They love them just as much as they hated him last year for twenty-three plus era in the post season. Yeah. He's. He's a hero. Fans are fans therefore. And so let me ask you this. I'm assuming you wouldn't have liked the infected needle of crony virus either now but is this because you believe any taliation is wrong or the this was the risks were too significant I just think the risks are two significant and get over it. Nothing that happened last night I don't like that at all over. The World Series got taken front. Yeah. Nothing that happened last night it's going to bring back the world series nothing. So you can either dwell on it and keep complaining about it or you can just say we got screwed. There's nothing we can do about it. Let's just try and go and win one this year. Okay. So let's say something horrible happens to someone in your life and what we can envision right and that person in your life still lie but there are suffering for the consequence of it. If that person who did it's in jail, it doesn't make it where the sufferings any less. But there's not additional suffering. On top of it of. Let's say, hypothetically, the guys at the picnic, there's a city picnic he's eaten final cake homemade lemon shakes shakeup homemade lemonade and he's drinking looking around laughing. And if your loved one is suffering. I mean there's a lot of vigilante type. You know there's a lot of movies and books written about that guy ended up in the alley dead the next day. And I get it that if we abstracted ourselves away like robots, we could say what what's going to help well, minimum. It's going to stop the double pane, the pain of what happened in the pain the guy got away with it. I mean that just seems I mean like I, think generally Jonas is like a pull up your pants and you know do the job and we're up some dirt and guy which I generally agree with. But. Is there any scenario that you think someone getting away with something wrong you would bother you or would you just Kinda Shrug at? Why are we comparing World Series Games to somebody in your personal getting maimed and the survivor going to jail but having lemonade because analogies typically are you giving extreme example? So the point is clear no doubt I just to be clear being in trying to be in a guy is less severe than him ended up dead in an alley. So both cases there was a relative response. But we made the one analogy extreme because it is everyone's listen go Yeah. It's a powerful point though you're right it's not the same thing I just I just think it's similar dodger fans have turned into saints fans to where they just cried and complained over and over about how they were wrong it was and I agree the Astros cheated their scumbags for doing it. I totally agree with you but just to dwell on it to the. Point to where now in the middle of this pandemic were returning to baseball and Joe Kelly is inciting a near fight where everybody CL- benches clear Major League Baseball has got to overreact to the suspension because they're just trying to maintain a season because they got one team who can hardly play at all I. Just I don't think he was the guy to do it and I don't think this is the year that you go ahead and sending messages. That's another interesting point. So Yeah but is this something you do next year? Yeah. It's. That's what I'm saying if you're going to do it I'm not sure there's a choice. This is the year now who started for the dodgers yesterday remember. I don't remember. Because the theory is I'm guessing. Mackenzie in research checked out because my guess is the typically he was probably on the dodgers last year I mean we don't know but we'll find out in seconds. He didn't throw now. Joe, Kelley has a history. It's interesting Jeff Passan ESPN said the he buzzed Bragman. So I guess the Buzz Award people he buzzed interests everyone's it sounds so innocent to me if he doesn't hit him that's like the next. The next step description uses buzzed it's step down. Is that the actual truth. Broadcaster handbook they having given baseball I. Don't know I'm more safe hours out of as Jones knocks. So bueller. I've heard that name. He was on the team last year he started. Why didn't he? If someone's GonNa Throw? Why doesn't Bueller 'cause? He's arguably the dodgers best pitcher wouldn't want him to get suspended for eight games. Except if you're a starter. It's How that would work? Yeah. What do you mean? It has happened a thousand times how you think it would work Steve I don't know if they'd give them ten games just because of the fact he wasn't gonNA play for flow. So you're saying that they might change his suspension amount based on if it's a starter no no, that's actually I. Think a valid point I thought you were going to say they might suspend them for three starts or something some new thing. Let's do this because I. I mean Jonas is bringing up some interesting points here. And I think this is. Yeah I. Guess I'm going to close this. Section with one thing and I believe this is the case for sure. When Society when the system doesn't. Exact justice. The participants do. The whole thing is if you're in a war zone, you know there's a reason they had the Geneva Convention I said even during war we gotta have rose because if you look around and no one's there and. You look at all of the atrocities or many of them. That's happened in war. It's usually his no one there exerting justice and it's hard to live life. If. You think there's no justice. That's what nihilism is after. World War Two there was a French philosophy of nihilism that it's a nothing matters after US suffer the atrocities of concentration camps and war. Unending. There's a sense of what what could madder. and. Obviously, society suffers greatly when that's the believe in fact, this is interesting. This is a little quote from the Sopranos in which they explained the very concept it truth is they bring certain modes of conflict resolution model, the way back in the old country and the poverty of the Mezzogiorno. Higher Thirty was corrupt. The theory being that. If your government's not going to take care of it. You've got to take care of it. And in this case, the stakes are lower no dow from war or. Death, but in. Our job is to talk sports and in my opinion in any given calendar year. If, you say, what's The ten biggest stories? I don't mean biggest as in twitter trends. I mean what's going to make the book the History Book? Five is going to be the champions in each I want to hear who won the super bowl if I was. Asleep Rip Van Winkle Style for twenty years I'd want to find out. WHO WON T steeler super bowls. They are to the pirates finally do something. Does Jones still infesting still have a full head of Hair I. There's a lot of, but who wins is going to be one of them one of the keys and then maybe Oh cal ripken got many games like there's going to be like the champion and one or two other stories that really matter a year and the Astros that champion is tainted and baseball. We don't want this problem that you know they hate it as much as anyone but they said, we don't want to uncover the underbelly of what's going on sweep it under the rug keep moving nothing to see here except in why play. And finally with the dodgers. Them. Because now it's been established. Oh, the dodgers must have got rocked because look they threw at them if the dodgers sit back and do nothing. The narrative on the dodgers got the world series taken from them. Diminishes and that's now someone's to blame for the dodgers point. So, would you agree with this show? This is. Putting an imprint upon this discussion that the dodgers we can debate today were too severe in trying to go annum, but it validates there was a reason to go at them. I don't know I think everyone already knew that I think everybody in L. A. Already now well, but the question is two and three years goes by it. All starts to fade and all of a sudden dodgers didn't win one. Can you believe Kershaw never won a world series? That narrative. I think this is a little asterik on the narrative that helps the dodgers. Yeah. No I I would think that. Joe, Kelley and just his rough time and start with the dodgers so far the past year plus this sort of in you know. Everybody wraps their arms around him now in dodger nation and they want to welcome in and say, all right. He's one of us now despite his struggles that helps Joe Kelley also now I think you're right great discussion I. Think this is the biggest disagreement Jones ever had like this is going to be fun good stuff from. Jonas. When we come back the Florida.

So Rj the athletic reported earlier today that another member of the Miami marlins tested positive for Cova nineteen that makes eighteen positive tests among players and coaches and Major League baseball has already postponed. Seven MARLINS Games following the outbreak just a couple of days ago. And Amazingly With all the other personnel in baseball and testing from Friday onward sixty four, hundred non marlins were tasked six, thousand, four, hundred. Zero. Or Zero Point Zero Jonas, we got almost twenty on one side. One team. The other twenty, nine, thirty, the League zero. What is Italian? It's maybe something was going on with that one team. There's rumors going. Let's say we'll say allegedly but what are you hearing I'm seeing and this was courtesy of the USA Today that. There were looking into Atlanta that Atlanta was considered to be A. Wings down there. Yeah. So so Atlanta was a possibility because they were playing a practice game an exhibition game last week they don't think it was Philadelphia where they were playing because none of the phillies players and they've all been tested twice I mean I'm tested positive. So they're trying to figure out what actually happened and so they're doing investigations to find out did guys go to a party? Do they go to a bar? Do they had out but the fact that it's all with? Asian. What I'm hearing is not that they're saying it must have been something but rather. It probably was something specific that would have been outside the guidelines. Yeah. I know that they're investigating it. I don't know the details are what they're considering right now here's what we know. Eighteen is the number MARLINS. Players Sixteen players plus two others I mean there's other people are human beings to Steve. Fabric Jeez and then the whole other league zero point zero. But here's the thing. What's the consequence? Anyone that has kids I. But I act like a kid. And try to punish me. Then I punish them back but. What we know is when a parent is tough on a kid with those say. It's a brilliant point. The consequence of him or her not learn. This lesson now is going to be much more severe. Than how severe the punishment is I want to give them now. Cycle hot stove. At some point, you may want them to touch out hot stove. Once. They got to learn it. and. If you tell them, it's human nature kid doll Tomlin them wagging your finger doesn't really mean much. Baseball this ties in Houston. She'd say wag their finger. So then street justice. Okay. We can debate it. Now, Florida or Miami in this case Marlins said. WE'RE GONNA break rules that say allegedly. What's going to be the consequence forfeited games what? Because let's be candid. If one player from an opposing team had caught it. That could then be a cluster without team has eighteen. That's the thing about this. In some ways, it feels like much Hullabaloo. And say what this is like the flu right which avoid the flu but on the other hand, this is so the it as some call now the covert is so contagious. That if there's people around each other one gets it most. He's GonNa get it, and then that's where the idea this contact tracing is got to figure out where it came from gotTa Stop It could you let that? Stream of infections. Run. You've seen the movies where they show it start with one to four. Yeah. Do exponential growth on that. So it's it's one thing to say I'm smoking cigarettes man I'm okay with it I'd rather live to be seventy five and have fun. Okay and I think there's a point where that makes sense to me not so much cigarettes but. The idea. that. The marlins. Won maybe risk their own lives or research health is their choice. But this is a situation where you're risking your sport. Because imagine if there were three teams right now. And let me ask you first FIS NGOs three teams that had the same level of outbreak as Miami just two days. Trailing. I think the talk to end the season would be gigantic at that point. Yeah I. Think it's a favorite they shut it down, shut it down, but they end the season. If there's three other teams in all, it would've taken would have been one infection outside. Of the Marlins Bu- you know quote Unquote Bobble and then one more you got three teams at that point anything. John and they're lucky that it happened the first weekend because if that were the case in three teams had an issue, the first weekend, it would really be sixteens because they were all playing somebody will if it happened two weeks in now, you gotta go back to what other teams that either team played before then and it just multiplies as you said. So the fact that it happened early and the first weekend is actually a blessing in disguise. Because the the whole thing with his as the incubation period. Once you now some can be symptomatic. So incubation period doesn't even matter if you get tested every day or every other day doesn't matter either because the theory is fans you could be. Infected right now, and we wouldn't know it. So I usually when a new person comes in the pre game boy I usually. Stay. Away from about five days to see if anyone else gets in fact is let me say that I mean not that I want them to but you know better than than the most important it makes sense. Financial Decision God looks at is always the same, but you're right. If God wasn't here yet. That wasn't quite how it was gonna come out but the reality is and let's tie. Let's tie back. To the dodgers and Houston Houston did something wrong baseball said, we don't WanNa feel the pain now of properly punishing this. And that's street justice. Here marlins did something wrong by let's say allegedly, but it seems likely. How is baseball? GonNa Respond. Because if you do it with a hey, let's let. Out of the headlines Finally, let's forget about it. Then, who's the next players saying? No big deal I mean what's worse PD's Or this. I get. Oh, you take some PD's you're stronger. Now you beat some records. Okay. Fine I'm mean that's bad. But this is a literally risking the season. Why not give him a hundred gant Anyone. That did something wrong give him a hundred is like a PD normal amount APD the first one is eighty the narratives. or it might be fifty, eighty, one, sixty two but yeah, it's it's a it's a long suspension. I think the first one is eighty though. All right. So which one is worse? Literally. Going out breaking the rules you know the rules you know this is serious. The whole political thing we can debate that no one thinks that spreading covert is not. Significant. The question is how much you sacrificed not to do. Well. You're league has told you you know the millions you're making it's contingent on following these rules. So you broke him. Now, it's about how impactful was that? What's the consequent feels like it's bigger this consequence potentially than PD's so a minimum make it the same. But I tell this the WanNa be people going out for wings no matter how good they were if these guys get crack for eighty. I'm Rj Bell Shakes Jones Nice Question I've heard rumor on this might be like not a rumor but true. Does every baseball team have a second team. That is I in some other locate. What have you heard about this a taxi squad so there's thirty guys that are just sitting around I think Jupiter. Florida white. Team has. Right or Jupiter they're all in different locate. Okay. Yeah. Yeah. So each team has the backups that are ready to be deployed I. Love that. So why not? Why not if a team if you have to quarantine the whole team, why not have the backups come in like W W E in their glory days, they still might have two different traveling promotions the team was in. Youngstown and the eighteen was in Pittsburgh promise that said, this would cause them to bring up a lot of rookies are going to crew a year of service owed. long-term another example where the rules are being CAJOLE. Trying to be circumvented, which is ruining the very purpose of the rule to start. And it's all about screwing the players over and Oh, by the way now you've got a guy every day thinking that he that he's not getting caught up. He's mad he gets up he's mad. He's mad five years later all for what one extra year and then the players are mad. So they negotiate hard you know Super Har. It's a chain of pain if you if you bet the season win total on the Marlins and say, they don't make up these games for whatever reason is it gives the bet just void or yes is this typically or almost always on a season long there's going to be a minimum number of games so I think in baseball fifty eight was the standard number that you. Miss too. But if you mystery was Voy- I saw fifty, eight, fifty, nine and sixty depends on the book. So and I tell you, there's nothing worse than having over and let's say the over sixty was thirty. You're like at thirty eight wins but they fall one game short. And Book. He says you know, and in that case, the bookies don't like the rebates either because in the end the bookies win right and every time a batch. A push effectively a no bat they lose expectations over the long haul. So they don't like it either but they're so worried about the bosses upstairs saying you mess this up that they have super. It's almost like a landlord with a lease. They're so worried that the guy that owns the apartment complex is going to be mad that they don't give any flex on. The different things in the back of a lease. These bookmakers are a lot like bookkeepers I mean they literally are just trying to keep their middle manager job and when someone does more than that they become a star it's just pretty rare what you say yeah. It's better to bad zero than about five hundred avoid any mistakes last question you Jonah. So you heard about again you're the expert when it comes, you don't miss a trick with reading the sports stories and seeing them. So the MARLINS had four players positive for covert the covered. And they voted on playing or not. I didn't see that they voted on playing I saw. that. Okay. So then they voted on it I know that it was the nationals who voted on whether or not they wanted to travel to Miami and play but I didn't know if the MARLINS had an in clubhouse vote as to whether or not to continue on and then that led to all the other positive. Yeah. So Mackenzie gave us the facts on that. One second. There was a text message conversation going on that morning and it looked like the shortstop Miguel row house was kind of the leader of that and he advocated for saying, Hey, ready to play. Let's play. But there wasn't a vote. I thought there was a VO. There wasn't a formal vote. It was conversation a group conversation via text. Okay. Either way the players are making this decision like I totally get it. If they were risking themselves, they should make the decision. But The very fact that. It's almost certain someone else was infected by those four means by going out and playing potentially infecting the other team and Somehow Major League baseball had no role in that. If I were the phillies that'd be pissed because I mean how that wasn't even brought to anybody's attention. It just popped up on late on a Sunday or Monday pretty ridiculous and baseball has one hundred and fifteen pages of protocols, and there is none to say what happens if someone's positive? Oversight. Do you notice Mackenzie on nervous. He was he was breathing like. I mean he's got the facts, but we bring him on the air as a last resort. Last resort. The you didn't take a I didn't take any communications classes. No, they suspended him before it. Got There. Suspend Journalism no communication. Just English. I've only read books I.

I'm RJ BELL WE ARE STRAIGHT OUT OF VEGAS and I'm Jonas knocks voice view the fan. So Rj, we are counting down all the way from thirty two to one straight. OUTTA VEGAS is top thirty, two teams, and now it is time for team number thirty St Essex. Childhood Heroes. Cincinnati bengals. Here's the question. With Would is the one big batting thing to know about the Bengals Cincinnati bengals. So unlucky last year R. J., they only one is your favorite team, the bang. Up in Dayton so that horrible record I'd. Bad luck bad luck explain. Oh and eight in. Games decided by one score start out week one remember bengals went to Seattle dominated for much of the game lost by one point and then at the end of the year, they lost in overtime to Miami and inbetween six more close losses boy the bengals should have had more wins last year or some would say losers lose. That's true but in the long run the. Teams certainly with propensity to losing and some. winning. But they're still a lot of lock, and if all you did was say Gimme all the teams that had the worst record in close games. And you said, are they better if God would come down and say how good are these teams? Really most of those teams are underrated. It's so powerful those wins and losses. If you look at the flip side, the two teams from last year, we were preaching the entire year on shade are Vegas where overrated Green Bay Seattle why the opposite a lot of close game wins exactly right and inevitably usually those wind up being about fifty fifty Seattle runner lines that'd be a fifty fifty over the long term not the short six four they can go in any way exactly right like Russell Wilson. Had never won more than he lost these close games and just last year Seattle hold on Russell Wilson over his career was negative three games in under five or in close games. But it wasn't like he didn't have one year that they won. It was throughout its history. Exactly. Yeah. So when you say he never won you acting as if it was multiple year, let's say we are hard enough on Russell Wilson because there's so much love of Russell Wilson and I think it's a little too much I'm rj both straight out of Vegas talking about his childhood team the Cincinnati. Bengals but cold cash. Well Caches Code. So you're GONNA look at him with is. Question to. Always have. The answer to any question about his team would answer. Would you want if Joe Borough can be effective NFL quarterback in his very first rookie year because look at the Weapons Aj Green he was out all of last year he comes back. You've got to other good wide receivers and Boyd and I and the second round draft pick and t higgins first pick in the second round. The weapons are there are J. Ken Burrow perform. All right. So you're generally optimistic about borough I am Yes side. So you got on him in a minute, but let's let me ask you this because I'm going to push back a little bit on Cincinnati's optimism on offense. Let's agree AJ Green. Always Sturdy one. Yes. For receiver that's getting up there especially receiver it's multiple. You know almost entire seasons now recently agree yes. Okay. Also. QUARTERBACK is king cash. How would you rate borough? Obviously, it's a projection right now versus Andy Dalton borough my thirty second rated quarterback Andy Dalton of all quarterbacks. There are some non-starters ahead. Yes. Andy Dalton Twenty one. So Dalton rated much better Jones. You ever notice when he says a number doesn't like Imam does it All. Twenty one versus thirty, but somehow the offense is getting better. Well, Ryan Finley did play three games last year and that was a disaster for the bengals offensive stats. What did you do with that? Finley Jersey you were wearing. I'd be did he came in and said Upgrade Cincinnati they're gonNA play harder true folks you upgrade Cincinnati when Finlay came in. Yeah I, mean that the guy went to super contest I mean. How should have been in contact? I'M RJ VO straight. Outta okay. So Joe Burrow you're gonNA put your money where your mouth is. You have a prop pick on him. Yes. I'm going over thirty seven, hundred pass yards for Joe, borough. That works out for about two hundred thirty yards per game three good wide receivers, and let's face it. The bengals still going to be trailing and a whole lot of games this year over thirty seven, hundred pass yards Joe Borough. All right. That's the first pick. Now you've got a forced lean or like you don't have to love it but you gotta give. Something over under for the Bengals I'm lean over five and a half you to lean. So three games so far not one like go ahead. Yes, and we talked about the improvements in the bengals offense also, they're left tackle number first round draft pick Joan Williams was out last year the entire year he comes back another reason for optimism on the offense is a valid point. If boroughs exceeds expectations, there are the element of take to I on twitter when you have a guy that Miss Asia Greens almost like another first round pick. I think. It's not even a debate, the worst coaching staff in football as Cincinnati Zach. Taylor. I've no confidence in and that's why it's just a lynn high but you do have an official pick on borough over Jonas grew quick which your thoughts in the bengals under I think they're going to struggle. There's their season to start off with his brutally get the chargers and that pass rush week one and then week. To. They've got a short week in their at Cleveland and we know the percentages on teams and what the future looks like I think there's a strong chance. They're going to be one in seven to start out next year. Real quick. Let's give the odds. You know Jonas pro start having him read the odds before Super Bowl one, fifty to one hundred, fifty to one season wins five and a half. The division odds twenty six to One to win the division playoff odds for the bengals seven to one not good as Chevy. Chase's in caddyshack and finally, Fez you got to lean on over five and a half. You got the like on borough over passing yards. If you missed any of today's show, you can check out the podcast at Fox sports radio. Dot Com.

Buy Or Sell From The Weekend

"Hi, there welcome to fantasy focus baseball. It's a beautiful Monday morning, July Twenty, seven, twenty twenty. The Sun is shining, outside my windows, but there's a pall over our great game of baseball, and hopefully we'll find out some more clarity later today, but for now we're going to do our fantasies show. He is h Cochran where I believe after three days as already won. All his league's soppy researches produces are fine show with a brilliant smile, and I am Eric Care about. Just hoping to avoid relegation to some alternate podcast site. Gentleman, we have to talk about the Great Game Baseball. We've got a full weekend in already and lots of discuss American League West pitchers, not a good weekend for them. We tell you which hitters multiple home runs this weekend for real, and of course in Asia's born in Chicago, but did we have any doubt? The Tyler check my only question to you. Kyle is this so Tara shot would obviously is going to win the National League. Cy Young, award, do they present it to him? In early August, or do they wait until November? As is the standard to I think early August is probably the play for the award in November. You switch the name of the award. So you honor him twice Kinda, my my feeling there because he's been such a great ambassador of this fantasy sport, the rebound somebody. Too, much. Oh boy, okay, well. Let's get to the good stuff now. Not so good. Actually I mean. It's mostly bad news this weekend, and before we get to. Justin verlander and show a tiny I. Just WanNa to give you an idea of where we're sitting at when we record this show, eleven am on Monday morning. We know as of now that there will be no more liens game against Baltimore there will be no phillies game against the Yankees tonight at certainly possible that wargames canceled out. There'll be some breaking news at some point today on the time. We're taping this podcast. This is what we know. Are the MARLINS. Still Manager scored thirty runs on my phillies bullpen yesterday half a team. I WANNA. Take this show seriously, but. With the players, the closers. Your your questions trivia all that stuff because i. just don't know what's going to happen before people listen to the show before our next show whenever that will be so everybody's okay with that so story justice early on. A Friday night, you bitch well by Sunday afternoon. Something was amiss with his right elbow. And now the Astros are saying shut down for two weeks reevaluated I texted you last night, and you answering me seven hours later and I said. Would you cut ver- lander in a League and the answer? I suspect is not so easy. What what do you? What is your answer here? It's not easy because of who he is. And how could a player he is, but it's two weeks before he'll be reevaluated. There was of course that immediate report, but one of the Astro's beat writers that he was after the season already, but two weeks to the point of reevaluation we're looking at. Abe's forty one so August tenth. While? Waiting Point Yeah I mean this. This is the problem. Is that then? He's GonNa have to work himself back up to the point. He can pitch again. We're looking at late. August is the best case scenario. Yeah. I'm worried that this puts a huge Dennis season. Best case scenario so I would tell people don't cut berliner yet because he still could pitch five times. September but I don't know I don't have an answer here and I guess it depends on your Rauscher construction. Do you need the roster spot to pick up tyler? For example who by the way all series is. He probably one of the top five starting pitchers recommend pick up right now I. Don't know. Who is a better pickup under fifty percent rostered like Dylan I looked list today and don't Bundy's on that list. But I don't like doing bundy Stephen Max. I don't think so. I would I would. My point is like an any astro replacement size need or I don't know Christiane Heavier I. Don't know who is a better up. The point is I'd have a hard time dropping burland or to pick up tyler chat with her. Dylan Bundy right now so I'm GonNa Keep Berliner on my roster and try to sneak in my way through if there's the next couple of weeks in baseball, what was the? What was the league? If I may ask? It's a league has a has a five-man bench I believe. injured. What's your list? Known Injury List so so your hands are a little bit more tied there I. Actually think in ESPN. We have the advantage that you're league, doesn't now? We're has been granting you the three injured Liz spots. You can wait make the decision later. I don't see a scenario by which somebody needs all three of those spots with three guys definitively better than Verlinden, so you can delay the decision for a week. Right, so for now we're going to say it depends on your leave whether you cut Verlinden your league, not because I could see him pitching us. September and we should say forearm strain is often a precursor to ucla replacement surgery, which is Tommy John. Surgery the case. This may be the last time we've seen Orlando. which would be a great shame I. Love watching pitched I. think he'd come back after if he had Tommy John Surgery I think he might come back afterwards, but it would not i. mean at this stage. You're talking about twenty twenty. One is out for any Tommy. John Surgery Guy. Like Seriously Dominguez is supposed to have his Tommy. John Surgery any day. He's already done for twenty twenty one so hopefully rest will help berliners arm, and he can pitch again in about a month Corey Kluber it's a shoulder and me. That's just bad because you know when you have Tommy John Surgery. That's a full year, but with Corey Kluber. That's shoulder man. That's that's almost as bad like there's no clarity there and shoulders. Don't heal the same way that elbows do. You can't go in and fix a shoulder surgically, and then you're all right. It's like you're always compromised forever, so I would drop corey. Kluber right now is only one inning over the weekend I think. Texas didn't grow up a ton from. Maybe this is why I think if you've got him in almost any league now, I would move on from Kluber. You agree with that. Another case of I tried to delay the decision as much as possible to get a firm diagnosis from the team, but you're right. He's a definitive. Steph beneath ver- lander and the injury does worry me over in terms of ineffectiveness. His effectiveness after a perspective return this year. We should do it I. don't see anybody viable right now. In Houston farce. Willie's not just going right into the rotation. This Wednesday and there's nobody in Texas in the minors. That is coming up right away so. There's these teams don't have like the dodgers. Do the Yankees have Clark Schmitz at least have Spencer? He's not starting in place of Vince Velazquez this Friday for some unknown ungodly reason. Good Luck phillies with your bullpen this year. The point is like most teams do not have viable replacements for these injured pitchers, one other guy I don't think he's injured, but maybe with the velocity drop Shohei Ohtani nary out, recorded on Sunday which stinks because I love pitch, but velocity was down. He couldn't throw strikes thirty pitches. Half of them were balls. Hafer strikes obviously got charged with five runs in a loss and I. I asked you i. mean maybe he's hurt his well. Is this I start coming back from Tommy John Surgery? So, what do you do with Otani? I have to keep them rostered. Resume Right, yeah I think the absence risk for him. Does he need another surgery and I I? Don't see anything right now. That indicates that's the case, so he could still be designated hitter for you and provide close to if not all of the value that you paid for him during draft season. The problem is that. This outing from a pitching perspective was ugly and all aspects No command nobility, Ninety two point, nine average velocity on the forcing fast bowler was between ninety six and ninety seven time we saw him pitching at full health. He just wasn't fooling anybody and. The other thing is he wasn't relying. Secondary pitchers this was as if it was the first time he was pitching since he came back from that injury, and it's not far removed from that. He had that bad outing during summer camp. That's another thing that we briefly discussed and probably way too briefly. He's a couple steps away from the point. He could help you as a pitcher I mean. Do you see him? Did you see any prayer? He turns around in the next in the next outing. I just don't. Think multi steps process why I mean why these coming back from Tommy Javanese had plenty of time, so I don't want to assume that the something. He can't fix before his next outing. I mean he's got a great arm is not a rookies of veteran guy from you know Japan, like I I just don't see why he can't bounce back. Yes, the velocity drop is concerning, but there were other pitchers that I've lost drops weekend. I'm not all that concerned about all of them. It's one outing ashort spring training, so if Otani onto innings and giving up two runs, but at the same velocity. Would we be doing the same thing now? I think so yes, I'm talking about. About from watching this game couple things that stood out to me. It was a more than three MPH velocity drop. That is a huge problem when you see velocity drops. They're typically in the range of a full mile per hour, not three the other as he threw thirty pitches, and they're talking about him as a once every week. He bitches Sunday I mean they're even talking about putting the designated hitter today because he didn't last deep into the game, so he's not going to be able to throw eighty ninety pitches in his next outing. So where's the volume going to be I? Just don't see how the next outing and probably the next two or worthwhile for fantasy now. Mention but I wouldn't drop. Don't know, drop them. He's got too much value as designated hitter. All right Let's move on. Let's happy thoughts here If we can find any art, so here are the here. Are Some of the hitters by Renault? Combo meals this past weekend. None at all. A portent of further absence like the homerun hitters aren't bothering still basis I. Mean Robert. Grossman A to steal game. mookie Betts base last night. He has power. I say it's just coincidence. What do you say I think? It's coincidence, too. I mean I didn't I gotTa, do the full calculations on stolen basis, but from the initial glance it didn't look like the rate was steeply down from last year. Five hitters multi homer weekends on. We're not mentioning Nelson. Cruz rostered never league and by the way he's amazing. Win The MVP award if they play sixty but here's some multi homer guys. I had a good look at a couple of them says. Miami I think he's feeling Okay Right now Didi, gregorious masked up CJ crone, who I actually got in a bunch of Leagues Joey Votto, and I think they were both off lefties and Seattle Rookie Kyle Lewis, who I compare to France says in an article a week ago and now thinking that looks pretty good Do you want to rank these guys you to go through each them one by one? Do you want to handle this? That's a good question. I kind of like the idea of rank them against one another I. So let's ranked. Who 'cause none of them are us, nor leave even veto I, so let's rank them in order what we think they'd be worth this season I I guess I could. I want to say gregorious first. shortstop power looks great pulling the ball. I'm going to say I. I'M GONNA. Say Kyle Story Really WanNa take collars receded chrome because Kyle is at best, isn't he? Cj Krone like that's my thing like. I was really going to be better than what we think's did. Cronies in a normal season, Cronin thirty. To fifty. Got That I I. Look I. I'm impressed by what Lewis is done. By the way this goes back to last year. All almost all of this is tied into power. I liked the fact that you through the mail race comp there because I feel like so much parental raises value is tied to home runs same thing for Lewis. I just don't think he's as complete a player CJ KRONA'S I I would also agree. It's D- D Crow Lewis, but kronen looser close. But even that says something 'cause none of us ranking Kyle lohse where we rank seated chrome, but I I think I need to do that if we do more ranking, so I would agree Dini one krone to Louis three between Motto Aguilar. Who you most likely to roster right now you have to make an. Injury after pickup somebody on Monday morning. WHO YOU TAKE! And this is the tough thing is that? I'm tempted to put bottle at the head of this list as much as I'm tempted to put them at the back of this list, and if it's points league, it's bottle. Early go, you gotTA. You gotta take a stand as he number water number five. I think he's my number four right now. I think I would wedge him. I think it's GonNa. Be a three-man tear where I'm wedging firmly between krone and Lois. And there's a bunch of hitters of that got off to the opposite of the Nelson.

Are Let's move on to a closer carousel here because a lot happened I. Want to jump in with a trivia for you because you mentioned Nelson Cruz. Got Because Elson crews related trivia question. All Right Trivia Trivia that Eric will know any icing Roy he's doing this. Yes, of course crews, three home runs in its first three games in twenty twenty, which are also his first three games as a forty year old. The rhetoric runs hit after a players fortieth birthday is seventy, nine held by Barry Bonds so I'd like you to name the three other players who hit as many as fifty home runs after turning forty years old. Three players have hit at least fifty career home runs after they turned forty years old and I'd like you to name them. I'm sure you would. I I have no doubt that that actually the case after they turned forty years old. Okay, I got to think about it a little bit I. Mean a couple of names jump to mind because I know they played when their. Coordinate but I'M GONNA look ridiculous here so. Urban Closer Carousel if you want. Duty. Let's do it I. Think you're singing is the best part of the show I do like we're giving good advice and information. I think you are least, Kyle. You would agree I mean Tristan singing does not nothing more is is valuable replacements. Singing wise is the best of anybody here secondhand. Not I mean really. Is really a drop off. When you're not here. Just in the drops you can win I'm in studio and I can play the drops. It's still not the same I prefer live Trista music every single day of the week. I think we ever get. That, we should just ignore them and. The rest I contributed drags down the overall war, but if we're a split out the singing, okay. August like a replacement player host so and I and I find it funny like you know the demoting players. The alternate site and it sounds like science fiction. It's like Oh. You know this guy like. Things like the mets pitcher lit up in relief. Doing a favor for the team gets into the alternate sites like thank you for all you've done, but now you're done. You're in science fiction. You're not. They were shipping through the dimensional portal over to another dimension out in some device that. And Boy? We're persona good last night Let's do the closer carousel here that you song so Yeah Kyle? You gotta drop that I understand. How excited you are about China shot with. He's got a family from New Jersey seems like a nice fellow south. Rooting against him is enough hatred in this country Lord knows that. We need to stop hating on anybody individually. We want everybody healthy. He's a nice guy. You might not want to fancy team. Remind very long last night like He. He was able to stay healthy out of the way of injury like we say, we think. As a reasonable fellow. Let's not like eight, if you. Call you go ahead and gloat about winning the bed of. Chow would versus porcelain weekend number one feel free you can take. The season ends today that I will glow happy about the final but You know okay, we can stick with. Five over negative Forsillo, I'm fine with that. All right so I think the biggest news when it comes to relief pitchers. This past weekend is what happened to Kendrick on Sunday and I was watching on. I'm thinking our that. How are they not taking him out of the baseball game is velocities down can throw strikes. Something's clearly wrong with Ken Giles's elbow and yet he still to face another I think to hitters. Frankly so I'm assuming that can giles if they do play baseball game is not going. Going to pitching for Toronto anytime soon and I think Anthony Bass is the closer, but it could be Raphael delays. Where somebody else what are your thoughts here on? Toronto and can is a shame because I've been saying cal is underrated, really is, it's always good numbers, but now this looks like something serious Yep, then I think you've said it quite well there. and they did announce afterwards that it was right. Elbow soreness for Giles so I do worry that. Is forthcoming the only other name I'll throw in addition. Was Jordan Romano who I know that the jays looked at very highly coming into the season. I think they felt that he probably isn't ready for that so since they have bass and they have to lease ready to handle the night. That's the direction they'll go, but it could be any of the three over the long term of injury is extended. Here, the the following teams where I think there's at least some lack of clarity, or maybe it's clarity and as a different player than we thought was going to be closing Let's start with. Kansas City where he in Kennedy pitched like the sixth inning the other day and Greg. Holland got the save. Do you think Holland? I can't believe I'm even asking. This and Kennedy was one of the top five closers in fantasy in the final four months of the twenty nineteen season, and they're really going Greg Holland. The closer tell me that's not true. I, feel like it's not true, but remember that Kennedy did come completely out of nowhere at this stage of two thousand nineteen, so it's not inconceivable that Holland who has experienced could be the guy for now. I'm planning as if it is still Kennedy. How about your Mitts Edwin? Run. Oh I feel dirty now. I got better with the as gets another chance or two. he's still throwing art. It's still throwing strikes, but. I mean you connect with them? Your hitter and it's going over the fence. I think as still closer, but how many more chances to get? At least another one I mean he was fine and the first outing. The ups and downs so her very reminiscent of last year I think it's still his job for now, but the fact that they had whispered about the committee. It's one more step away. Then macgill's allow again. Cody pitched in the Middle Innings Taylor. Winnings to save for Seattle yesterday against Houston. That's a bad sign I mean macgill's not even as proven as candidate, Kennedy's only proven for four season, but. I would drop at McGill right now. I would drop Tony Watson to the giants. Clearly, Trevor got got to saves. He's the closer Tony Watson Right. I still think that's a committee, and I'll be honest with you on fan fantasy, wise mixed leagues. I don't care about either these two teams. I was going to be enough there for to matter, but you're right that it the dots. Looking like he's got a leg up on the competition and Kim you do care about is Tampa Bay Nick, Anderson, pitch, the seventh and eighth of a weekend game man I think it was Oliver Drake. The save so, and this is something I I'd been saying for a long time. Why are we assuming that Nick, Anderson? We'll just get the Tampa Bay net one. One set that Nick Anderson was the closer and never said that we all just assumed that based on how well he pitch last year, and in fact the do custodio and Jose Alvarado were somewhat compromise or pitch, poorly or or the virus or something I. Don't think the game says the closer I think you'll get some saves. I don't think he's GonNa. Get All. Agreed and I think that's the best description and I think that's what would team people up is the reason and the fair assumption as to Anderson being the closer is that he's the best overall pitcher, the most overpowering and it's the stuff that fits the role. And if you're going to go with the committee, that's the guy you want to draft I, but you're right. It's going to spread around. There will be situation opportunities, even for a guy like Jose Alvarado to get saves when lefties are up in the ninth. You just have to deal with it. I guess so. just seems odd to me that everybody and we all did, too. We are ranked in our top ten closer than I was like. Why am I doing that anyway? Now? A word from our sponsor. Okay. Let's Let's preview. Mondays Games in case. They happen and we already know as of this taping. That will be no game in Philadelphia and no game in Miami. For good reason, we'll see if there's any more. ESPN has a double header on the schedule. Arizona's San Diego at four PM Eastern Time Luke Weaver who I know. You're a big fan of against Joey location you. I don't think you are and the nighttime game is the METS IN BOSTON? Michael Walk Against an opener. joss opiates. That should be fun I. Clearly the best pitcher we're going to see on ESPN. I think starting pitcher today why we were so much. Keep small down gets grounders does MRS an adequate number of bats, non elite skills there, but also at a very strong finished last season, which bodes well from the workload perspective. My big question was he was going to get off it was. Would he get enough innings this year I think in the short season. He has a good chance of that I'm going to just to know that I will defend Lucchessi in that a lot of the pitch selection analysts out there in the industry have said there's some stuff. There's some stuff to like about case I'm not I'm not willing to be completely dismissive. The reason I didn't draft him and faded him in mind. Is because he wasn't guaranteed rotation spot. Entering the air. Lower before I forget and it doesn't look Tampa. Bay is slated to face a left-hander anytime soon, but G. Man Choi. What he did yesterday was unbelievable. He is a left handed. Power hitter first Baseman, who I like I think more than most and I like him I haven't been siblings two, but the point is. He was going to lose at bats against lefties because he's in a platoon, and now might not be. He hit A. A home run, batting right handed yesterday for the raise, and I'm thinking if he's a full-time player and perhaps a fulltime leadoff hitter, G. Mature deserves a lot more love in the fantasy world now I'm not saying you know. We're ranking where we do Jose Braille, but why would we not ranked man where we rank for example CJ krone me Howie Kendrick if he's going to be able to bat right handed against left handed pitcher. Spot on why not? Okay but thousand point I. Am I crazy for thinking that g? Troy goes around thirteen. If you're drafting today knowing that he can right handed, it hit a home run. I don't think we should assume he can bat right handed and do that again, but if he's locked in role lies, even if he's batting left handed and he's a leadoff man for that team. Would he not right handed against lefties. I'M NOT GONNA. Take this reactionary thing that all of a sudden things have flipped like this, but they have and nobody could have seen that coming. You couldn't see that coming. I couldn't have seen that coming, but we should react because it's very clear. The role has shifted and significantly so. I think it's fair. are what else on today's slate that we will try to a couple game days at a time I'm not quite sure why. Any what like man? This is not a bunch of Ace's going today. But Tyler glass now a potential as going for Tampa Bay. How do you think he will be used in his first couple starts? Somewhat sparingly probably not to the extent that blake snow was, but I think he'll be on a somewhat limited pitch. I would still start him. He's got unbelievable stuff. He can rival for the batting average against leading the majors definitely just way too good quality to ignore. Tuesday on ESPN plus Colorado at Oakland says Antonio Sends a tell Daniel Mendon Mendon in the AJ, quotation spot, which stinks because I, really WANNA. See Our pitch, but there are some interesting inches going Tuesday at least scheduled to pitch costs Martinez of the cardinals at Minnesota. It's not fun place to pitch against that lineup. also calls Rotana Cleveland Josh Lynn Bloom at Pittsburgh so some interesting starting pitcher Johnny Carino's like Zach police sack of thoughts on any of these pictures and Walker Bueller makes his first start. Los Angeles hasn't even used Walker Bueller Clayton Kershaw yet. Our La Houston that's going to be interesting. bueller falling into this one. That's another guy who might be facing a limited pitch. Count here. You know digesting the individual days matchups I, think I think I disagree that I prefer Monday set. There's there's three guys there I. Think are more interesting than the Tuesday ones. Lindblom I'm on board with you at Lindblom, but then again I am with Adrian. Hauser as well for the brewers in the Monday game, so the back into their rotation could have some underrated fantasy appeal I don't know that road own yet. Rodin yet rodion was. was a guy who was thrown into that rotation kind of at the last second, they were talking about as an option for the fifth starring might not make it. He might be piggybacking somebody else. Are you on really on board? This quickly I'm on board with any white SOx pictures. I think that I liked Julia. I I don't have any shares of Lucas G Alito. He terrible I surely did not go after Reynaldo Lopez Lopez, who I think might be hurt Eastern. Even he couldn't even get out of the first inning. They use Gio Gonzalez relief missing one of their stars now that kopecks out I catching. Monday, that's another reason why I like the Monday. I. I don't want to invest in him. I don't feel comfortable. I'm not GonNa I. I will say this to both of you and I'm sorry Kyle I cannot see how somebody could be on tyler chat with that also. Sees you walk. Let's see I. I will take ceases upside over would. They both have control quick. Or I'll give you that. What the Difference Between these two gentlemen I think is obvious. Toddler child has shown in the past. To be a reasonable fantasy option, even Colorado. Don't cease never show that he a rookie last year, so you're comparing these to as if they both have the same degree of experience upside. Why does the I don't see why talk show? It doesn't have the same upside or better upside and sees you'll see that. Let's not overstate chat. Woods experience one year. Twenty years pitiful than. I mean like effective high level fantasy production. It's one year. I guess we're talking about two thousand sixteen. It was. The one contract. You're right. It was not a high strikeout rate. That was a little bit concerning, but it was course, so you don't know Last season he seemed to unlock something pitching out of the bullpen for the cops and you're right I. Don't know I'm just saying about looking for pictures that are readily available right now. I don't even know the cubs face next. That's really all that matters I'm going week to week. So China's next album. Be The over the weekend. We're talking a lot about him he. He. He is home Pittsburgh. This coming week, and then he's at Kansas City as a matter of fact, Kyle. He's got a very favorable schedule in the early weeks, and by by from that aspect. Yeah, I'm on board. I think people are going to react. Like were in love with child would and he's the bad and I. Don I would hope you guys aren't thinking that way. Well I mean. Look on looking at the most added. LISTEN ESPN leagues for starting pitchers Okay and here it is, and some of these guys are already rostered. I'll just read out the top five sandy al. Qatar Ross stripling native John Lester. Are you kidding? Would you add John? Lesser Adrian Hauser Dakota Hudson Bundy shriveling eighty percent already, so he's probably going in your league. Why are people having David Price? I doesn't make any sense so. Leagues where they're trying to get him locked in for future I mean like if you to add nate Pearson and hope he pitches Wizar- Thursday. Okay I could see that you wanna add. Grady singer wasn't a bad I adding if you Johnny Cueto over showered. Okay Johnny Cueto more success. Great Home Ballpark looked fine against the dodgers look fine, alright, east Kinda, donate with smoke and mirrors, but he bitch well. So I I could see picking up any pick brady singer up over Ch- our Pick Pearson and Cueto up over him. After struggling? Dondi houser of volleys What are people picking up native for? I don't understand the love on native. All I just don't okay. One World Series outed I'll give you that, but he's not a strikeout guy. Despite throwing a hundred, he's had no success. It is regular season Major League career for any any long period of time. What do you see? What am I wrong here? What are you seeing native body why picking up? Fair point I'm not as totally dismisses as you. I do think he's got more swing and miss than you think I think the current version of him. The one that Larry Rothschild showed how to throw the splitter can now miss bats at near one printing and people are just going for the he's healthy now I will use them and squeeze whatever I can juicing orange pickup I look! He Pits Real Against Baltimore. It was the only red sox starter did and out I. Just don't see. He had seventy whips and sixty seven to thirty last season half out of the bullpen. People are treating him as if he's a eleven k per nine guy and I just don't see that at all. Anyway. Moving on now, that's enough for predicting I don't even know. These games are going to be played Let's bring in Kyle now this Hash browns. He blocked questions. Let's try to answer them. If you're done with predictive hashbrowns, it's tough place to go, but Bundy wants to know of Giovanni Legit, and if so, where does he rank the rest of the season? Assuming we get so I'm not adjusting anything right now. Joey votto it was a weekend. I I would like to believe that the power's back, but we've been born the last two seasons, so it was a weekend I need to see more before I start adding him or a suicide guitar. Who is at one good season in his career I can't do you also roll the tape back to Thursday? We said lefty reds game in their stack. Go for it, and he is what Oh a lefty read. Ready! Is there a kind of building on that? If you're not willing to kind of jump into the pool? For who are you moving up your ranks after four days is something jared wants to know? I WANNA like. I? Let's go to the hitters most added list now Steve Anybody here. and we learn is number one because he had a big first day you WanNa assess this okay kyle lowest. Chris Taylor Camman David Fletcher. Why because he was good Sunday Jackie. Bradley Jr. Hosing Peraza batted fifth on Saturday and lead off on Sunday Andrew Benintendi is off to a terrible start and of Andrew. Benintendi doesn't get hot in the next couple of days. He's really six or seven, Peraza about leadoff for do go I suspected a week ago, cabal, leadoff, but barrages, son of a base stealer guy, and not a big one at that so out would add. Up to sixty two percent, nutrient standard are definitely at Carl Lewis because it could be frame. annual. He didn't even walk a couple of times this weekend. The thing I liked the most. I thought couple of the at bats. He was not this flailing away at everything and granted Houston was thrown out. Carl Lewis Yeah, he walks. It too walks over the weekend Greek. He was terrible yesterday. He didn't have an opposite field single to win the game yesterday like that's a great sign of a guy is taking walks. Did strike out six times. It is thirteen at bats. Okay, so eventually that three sixty four batting average is dropping released a hundred points it dropping this week hundred points you can't strike out in literally more than half of your at Bats and Bat. Three six can't about to sixty two so Carlos to me combat to ten, but he also could hit. Fifteen home runs. The Guy? The Guy, who I'm looking at the names I'll move up and we're talking mostly incrementally. Larry Garcia the white sox. Role Related Choi Role Related. And Ricky Hernandez role related Lewis, who had mentioned? An ahead. One more who I saw that. I saw a lot too much frankly of. Miguel row and I don't understand why eighth and ninth for Miami. He shouldn't be batting second for Miami. He's good and there was a show. Sometime this summer where I said to you, why can't Miguel Ross? They invested a long term contract in him. He's there shortstop until Josh and Muslim the second base is makes contact. He has the potential for double digit home runs in double digits deals not a ton, but I compared to the martine pro with a little bit more speed. The role has great weekend. Yeah, I remember that. And and the other is this. I mean obviously we'll see how things play out for the marlins over the next several days, but he was a volume driven player where they are locking him into a regular role that is an advantage fantasy wise when you fill all the categories rotisserie wise I'd say, but even then he's second in the majors in points, fantasy points, and the points leaks to. A players. Being dropped that I agree with Gavin Lux, of course, he's not up hundred dosier on your list with Garrett Hamza's being dropped because he had a bad rican. I guess Buxton same thing Miguel playing times not going to be there kingery Ben Eighth. That's a big problem tweet. Unemployed Kyle Tucker. They're Kinda platooning him San Hillier. They did their plutonium with Cam. I told you it was going to happen and it did So I guess I kind of agree with all these. Ryan bronze being dropped I could see that he's a d. h. now, but he's GonNa play every day so much, not why? Thought. That was probably the injury related thing at the beginning of the year with Ron. Lingering from a couple of days earlier. Jessica! That's just my guess. My my only. By by the way we're since the question came from bottle. If I was doing, a points set posted on there. Yes, I would move them up. I do think this is one more as locked in a tenth to fifteenth first. Baseman said as a matter of fact based on the lack of first, Baseman, and appoints league. You can pretty easily make the top ten case. Case, don't you think yes, let's be clear here. In a general sense everything I'm talking about is Rodeo not points. Rodeo is my game, but I know points. League is a game for a lot of people that he has been fantasy. We will specify when we mean points as opposed to straight Rodeo in points, league joy vodka would have been in my top hundred. Rotor League. He was not in my top two hundred so i. don't WanNa, change all that yet. I don't I I would bet that you and I would have just outside of that, but we. This is the thing. He was borderline draftable for most a rotisserie league, and he was more of a middling amid round. You know, throw the DART at. That's fair. What else we got, we got a couple of pitchy questions here before the Hash. Brown wells dries up off wants to know the resident. Yankee fans doing Paxton. Diminished velocity early on. You okay, and it's a fair question. Considering we talked about tawny. It wasn't quite as extreme as Otani's was a get you. The exact number was her. Yeah, the matter that was extreme. I don't think so. That it wasn't too extreme. To an extreme is extremely different. Okay, so like if his if he's down to house for our I. Don't care that it there will. Tony is three and a half. To would be pretty extreme to guess most most who off at most a mile mile and a half per hour down. His was ninety two point four. Watched him wasn't impressed. The injury question in the past the fact that he was supposed to have a delayed start of the season was on time. Maybe he's not quite up to his full strength. At this point, I'll give him a little bit of the benefit of the doubt. There you're gonNA trade him for what sixty cents on the dollar. So what's the point? You're I. Think you're stuck and have to wait it out and just cross fingers. Fair enough. Out there if you're, not drop Paxton Caleb. DROPPING AJ POCK assumes it's okay to do a standard they. Hate to do that, but you kind of have to. How can you not? Roster right I mean you can't hang onto something. You don't know what's going to happen. Just. About. Your I'll spots. Make a I'll spots. Make the decision for you. There are more than ESPN game I. would just don't know what to say. We're GONNA. Come into a situation where you have to make those decisions. I don't see how AJ PUCK is. Is, worth rostering is not pitching in August. He doesn't have the not proven as. And KLUBER ON! He'd be down on my way down my list of guys. Waiting for him. Sorry I'd rather have Spencer Howard Mackenzie goal right now. He's not hurt and sick. So. It looks a lot of guessing game going on here. I don't know when Atlanta's getting catchers back. I don't know one hundred dollars going to play or one Soto with frankly the biggest story we dealt with it on Thursday nights podcast I wrote a story in which I could be wrong. I said the one soda will be back before Clayton Kershaw centuries. What I said I would I don't panic on either one of them, but Kershaw with back spasms. You know the Astros could could Lever Lander on their Andrew Listen to the last outing of September if they're a playoff team anyway. Why would they even let verlander lander pitch in September until the very end and it's. It's the same with dodger to Kershaw. IS ANY BACK SPASMS WHATSOEVER? Kershaw might not even make five start this season. I think want Soto could still play this week. All you need is one more negative tests. He's already had one. It might have been a false positive I. Don't know why think that but I think it and I left. I left active and one of my leaks. Kyle I don't know if you pulled the question on there. Saying no somebody had asked in a league where this week is separated for them off. Site you. There are a few leagues that will do this that this coming seven day period is its own week. Would you start Americ-? Soda. Off Meadows is the question, oh? It's meadows I well. Yeah, but I mean I. Think Soda is more likely to play the meadows. For everything I'm reading I. Don't know for sure, but from everything I'm reading Soto still as a dramatic. So I'M GONNA assume look I. I don't think. I don't think the right question I. Think the question. Is the waiver wire available players? I could've activated Michael. Taylor for one Soto Labor, which I don't believe you can change rosters on Monday morning. No and I left Taylor inactive. He hit a home run soda. Why not play at all chance? I took I don't know when Sorta or matters of playing. So that was the news from the from Thursday there was a what was the other big news that we dealt with on Thursday night. Kirk out. I was are alright. McLean pitch this weekend. Is Pending weekend, but I would not. Look really should leave. Soto anchors on your bench if you can change rosters, the point is whether you have anybody else to to active. You have the choice today that you can use. Michael Taylor for one soda or Austin Meadows. Would you do that? No, because I still think I don't think regularly. Terror is going to be in their lineup. Only one of the three games. If it's a player of that value level where there's a little concerned about playing I think the point here is you, and I would go ahead and take. The champion can activate coal calhoun. Okay for one Soto. Yes. But Michael Taylor. No, that's my point and Saint. Yes. Leisure guarantee the playing time I probably didn't. Get my point over to you properly. On Thursday, show Michael Taylor, not worth me sitting Soto, but Kole Calhoun or Jay. Bruce or even Michael Tuchman. That's different. Okay well I didn't get my point across in that. How many games did you expect so? We're going to set it at three and a half for those two players. What would you assume for availability of those two players this week and it's a guess. I guess we have no idea about this. I think soda plays more and I think matters played less. I think they're both about the same and I think it's the right over under. I'll take the over and they played four, but I'd plan that way I would make it. Goes Fine, and he just needs a test, and he plays Tuesday or Wednesday. I think met was actually sick, and he's the work white back so I think it's a little bit different, but there's a lot of guessing. All Right? What else do we need to do here I? Guess we're just about done right I mean. Answer? Yes look how the Trivia answer, so please remind me with the impossible question. Wise, it's not impossible. It's players at the age of forty or older, because Nelson Cruz already has three of them. Barry Bonds is the leader in home runs after a players fortieth birthday was seventy nine, but three other players have hit fifty plus after that birthday. Can you name them? Ted Williams incorrect? Ted Williams. Raphael Arrow. Way Hit forty four. Course while marrow hit. Twenty. I'm not I'm not going to get this one. I mean how many guys even I mean I guess. Pelos is forty right? Two of these players are in the hall of fame. The third is not. Okay. Well the hank hours forty I. Guess Nope Hank Aaron Hit. And Garin had hit forty two after the age of forty. They're. All favors. I would think they're happy. It's from that aspect. I'll say that the shame is no actually I do I. Have I have one nine two items on the wall of one of these players, ASSOCI- may not be Bruce No. or Lou GEHRIG. Now April items. Six Reggie. I will now I'm just embarrassing. Myself just hopes dance, Reggie Jackson at twenty six. Okay, so the Yankee was Dave Winfield. Dave winfield hit fifty nine. The other hall of Famer is a Catcher. Carlton Fisk called Fisk Seventy two second on that list, and the third is the player I. Believe had the record for home runs at one point past the age of forty in the eighties, and I'm pretty sure he hit more than thirty. If. You remember this player. He's not a hall of Famer, but he had a big year after the age of forty and the eighty S. he was a brave and a tiger Gerald Evans against Ireland's. Yes in before you said, brave and tiger. Okay, that's a good question. On from hit forty runs as a thirty eight year old and eighty five thirty crews is unbelievable and I had him ranked in like round five, and that wasn't good enough. I know it's only one weekend against bad pitching, but he looks like an MVP it really does, and I hope he gets the play sixty games. Improve it I. Don't know what's going to happen next. People is going to be a meeting MLB today. I guess we'll find out by the time our next show. What's going on in baseball? Check it out on ESPN. Cover Jeff Passan and everybody else. Who reports and you know I don't even know what I'm rooting for at this point, but I do enjoy doing the fantasy focus baseball podcast with. With Kyle and with Dave Scholefield when his computer works, so thank you and I assume we'll be back Thursday but check us out on twitter. Kyle, be tweeting out. It's a change that and you know.

Please if we're GONNA podcast twice a week. We need more questions on twitter to Kyle. So please send in advance of next Monday You have a buzz song for today. way my neighbor is apparently mowing his lawn right now so you might be hearing that. I don't know what to tell you me when I'm not speaking. Do they have or I love this? How all these little conference things we do online. They're all really confusing. Change the mutiny on mute and then people are talking and they're muted then you on mute and you don't realize you haven't muted and I don't know whatever the only the only stuff I'm doing is basically broadcast. I got no less DP kind of thing for the best thing I can think of his boss baby crash crash crash. That's great that's great. You're making stuffing fantastic. Bang baby came to my mind right away. That was yeah right at the end of that after college. Not Think it was in college right right at the end? You're like younger than I. So your taste in. Music is a little bit different than mine But that's okay. What's your favorite out? Just in general no matter the band favorite of any band. And you remember your first out now. Just anybody my first album. I went for a run yesterday outside the Nice Day and I put. I listen to an album on my phone while I was running. And it's like the first album that I ever remember listening to I was at summer camp. I was a kid to first album. I was introduced to like wow. This is pretty good Do you have an that all right? I'll throw two of them one. Was I remember getting the counting crows August and everything after because I was waiting specifically for that one day that I got it but the the first CD on CD album that I got if I recall is YouTube achtung baby which was tremendous album. Yeah see my first album is before CDs. So that's my first aid. Anyway on my run yesterday I listened to Ottoman Dada by the police. And it's a fantastic. You might think routes strange choice but that was the first one I listened to and you know and I love it and I still listen to it at honest about your first album. I don't think it's that I can tell you that the I I remember is the Jim. Henson muppet Christmas record. And it was a record way back when I was look it loved that thing. I don't remember that one One haven't joined. I've been trying to find. What is it those? I'm just a bill multiple all those raw although songs You know the song talking about like when I know who has rock schoolhouse rock. And it's not in my modify a songs for squash rocker. Not there really angry. I wouldn changed. They have like other people singing the song all right. Let's do some Trivia was the ninety S. I think where they did. The covers. Blind melon did threes the magic number. They did some covers so those are some of those they are but I just want to listen to the originals from multiple cut from rock. You know schoolhouse rock and they just weren't available to me You've I have a trivia question. Do you have a trivia question I do. I'm not blown away by it. So if you WANNA throw a curve go. Here's it's throwing occur So so our Pal Mike. Gianola from the fine baseball prospectus website. Please check them out. He texts me the other day. Because he's doing a a two thousand six strata matic season and he asked me to phillies trade away stuff at the deadline that made them actually better in the clubhouse was Bobby Brown. Nobody likes them so and then he says it's amazing that the phillies best player during their title. Run never won. Mvp We all know that straight. Suddenly he's their best player so he said to me. Do you know who is the hitter with the most seven plus four seasons wins above replacement season since nineteen forty seven with? Marion? Mvp Award. And I guess I knew wasn't although all five of them which is pretty good record seven. I Guess Wade boggs right away. He actually has six. There's one player since nineteen forty seven. That has seven seven four seasons without an MVP. It's not bogs. It's not lake. Think about all the players. I mean a lot of the MVP words. We'll get the answer later in the show. What's what's your trivia or do you not want to give it now. I'll give you the trivia because then I can sing right trivia that Eric will do. Of course I won't know the answer to yours. I'm thinking about that one but I'll let you chew on this one as well. And Look at both answers at the end of the show simply. I'm going to ask you to name the five active players who've had season with at least at least forty doubles and forty home runs active players. There are five of them who've had a season of at least forty doubles and forty homers. Okay Yeah I'll think about doubt out show on that Like I said I like yours better on this one. I'm going to be thinking about that. I mean I mean obviously like the go Capri gotta be some guys like that. I gotta say Rivaldo I'll I'll I'll I'll think about it And then you think about mine by the way for people that are looking for something to do so there was. Espn story earlier. This week by I think all of them Gonzales on strategy and Abba to great games an ORPHAN K. Leased PLAN THOSE. I am currently enjoying a dynasty league baseball. Google it for the attack against the website I'm playing out the twenty twenty season along with Steve Gardner our friend. Who was a today he? He's the defendant. You're kind of playing plane. I'm jumping back into that last week. Last week was a little. I excuse but like Yeah you're the Yankees all that you really ought to be a team in alley so we can play. But anyway that's playing out the twenty twenty season and I love it but it's so frustrating because the phillies have no relief pitching and I have a thirteen digit staff and it's still never enough. They're all tired. So an actor narratives good and so the other day. I'm playing game at Wrigley Field against the cops and I'm blowing like a seven to lead in ten four lead and finally eighth inning and I have to bring hecker narrows at some point. He is not allowed to run. The entire season is probably pitch. Ten Times were thirty games in. He is not allowed to Ronnie comes in with two men on. And we're upper. Ron and Josh vaguely pinch hits for the cubs he was like third string catcher rhianna batter and I looked it. Up Is Oh for sixteen for the season against right handed pitching and you know what happens and the wind is blowing in twenty six miles per hour at three run home run. I lose fourteen to twelve became. Breaks your heart. Stephen are going to play another challenge series. Soon his eighty two Orioles Club. My seventy seven phillies. And maybe we'll do a nineties matchup Are you enjoying the game? I Mean Dynasty League. Baseball is pretty good. Yeah it is and I'm finding similar things to you that that even with the depth of the Yankees bullpen dealing with the warm up rules in that game and dealing with managing the tricky. I issued after relief pitcher to get into a game. Like you don't have to do that on diamond mine so we have to die. Mine Leagues that are going on. Right. Now there's a great fun I don't want to have to think about what we do. In twenty twenty one yet Out of the park. Of course who does the baseball reference seems? That's fantastic strata matic I'm forgetting something. Let's talk about some of the baseball reference Sims We always focused on the pitchers on Monday. Show the guys at maybe. We're not even thinking about drafting but her simulating out. So well that maybe we're missing something. We talked about a couple of those pictures. Just listen to Monday show. I'm sure it's there so talk about some of the hitters. Right now are doing great things and maybe we're not considering them and there's two guys batting four hundred on the season they're probably about thirty games into one. Is Carlos Santana who we are. Drafting the Middle Rounds Davidov Colorado's batting four zero seven now. Obviously some of that has to be Coors Field. Fueled but is injury reasons. The only reason I think David probably gets drafted in most leagues. Later on maybe around eighteen or so. But what are you definitely center than that okay? So if David Dot. Let's assume David never playing one hundred sixty two games but if he plays at one thirty it can still be a really valuable fantasy acid. He can still basis. He has power or your thoughts. David Doll not blown away by the skills because we've mentioned this the entirety of his career to this point which albeit being short. He doesn't have the best plate discipline. So there's going to be a lot of streaky. Nece in his game the ballpark and then of course the home road part is going to come into play with that and as you mentioned the injuries. I'm trying to get the exact number form let's see the NFC overall the entirety of this preseason is one forty three overall. So it's a little sooner than you're describing. I might have ranked them around or two sooner than that. I'm cautiously optimistic. I do believe he's one of the players that I would be concerned about if chorus field is not me? Twenty twenty equation. I'm not giving any you know any look until I know for sure because I just think it's kind of ridiculous Okay so they were doll. Obviously injury concerns. I haven't looked up. Exactly what is crying? Game is but he always seems to be hurt and as part of the issue and let's talk about another guy who always seems to be heard although he actually always is her. Byron. Buxton is doing some nice things in the simulation last. I looked at me. See if I can get your Yeah he's got six hundred twenty. Rbi Five steals and That's pretty good. That only two thirty six. Not a guy takes a lot of walks his. I like to do this. Sometimes when I look at home runs stolen bases in walks and see what the highest numbers I like Tim Anderson. I think I did it with recently. so that's real life to me. Anderson because I was writing about the white sox first story maybe it's posted and I was like how does a Guy Bat three. What at three thirty when a batting title by taking you know twenty walks late. Success took fifteen walks last season so last season had eighteen runs. Seventeen steals and fifteen walks. I can't imagine that's happened too often. History where a guy had more homers and more steals than what like a bind individually believable more homers and steals combat or more of each each. So Tim Anderson actually last year with fifteen walk. He had more steals than walks and more home runs walks. How's that possible? Let's not take some doing. I mean maybe Tom. The answer is GonNa have to figure that out to this afternoon and get back to us on twitter. I realized that's crazy. Anyway Byron Buxton is kind of doing that right now so who would you rather draft David? Dollar-buying BUXTON I that's close. I probably would draft all I. I'm not look I'm I'm trying not to forget about Buxton but at the same time I've got the pull the other direction of not not overrating because you know how much I believe in defense driving playing time. The injuries are the the neutralizer there and he does get numbers stolen bases and nowadays. Those are valuable but I mean it's the best case. Scenario is to sixty five to seventy hitter with twenty home runs. You know. That's not a top fifty overall player. Even if he gives you a full season I mean I just can't see it Let's talk about some other heaters so again. We're not excited about drafting dollar boxes. But it's interesting what they're doing here and another guy who's doing really well again injuries. Roman Quinta Philadelphia has like nine stolen bases already. He's got a little bit of Pop He doesn't have a lot of durability BUT PHILADELPHIA. Really doesn't have a center fielder right now. Either Adam as guests but they can have a Queen Hazel Platoon. Maybe a quiz a better player when he's healthy certainly got among he's got great speed is A. I don't WanNa talk only about injury prone guys but Roman Quincy me. If he could ever stay healthy he gets forty base right now. He's got nine. The only two guys are more mouth Smith with thirteen an hour to modesty with twelve. Which one are we focusing on? I was very curious to find about the homers and steal thing. I did find a guy who had the same number of steals as walks by the way looking at up and not. Listen to a word. I'm saying nothing talks. We're talking steals. I know but which one you through several grants giving Roman Quinn. You saw Romney Quintas interesting deeper league or no if it's an NFL. Only if it's a sixteen plus team mixed league. Perhaps but I tend first of all we've been advising against drafting. The jarrod dyson types even the Malik Smith types specifically dyson. We're trying to fade him. Because that's all he gives you. Quinn is going to be like that. I probably prefer Quinn's overall skills to dyson for fantasy purposes. But he's not an everyday player and I think the phillies are going to use them in kind of like dyson role in Kansas City. And that just means there's not going to be a volume Speaking of Kansas City number two guy in extra base hits so far. This season is hunter. Dosier who I wrote about For one of my stories I don't know when Iran or if Iran but honor dosier is moved for third base to right field. Got a little bit of Pop He got off to a great start in real life in two thousand nineteen and he's seeming very nicely right now. He leads the League in Doubles Hundred. Dosier to me. Seems like a guy who nobody's drafting or if they are the trading within the last couple rounds but he could actually be. You're starting corner infielder. You take late route twenty or so but this potential breakout got you disagree. I feel like he did last year and I don't know how much more rooming has to grow I. I don't think he's getting enough attention. I think he is a better player than this scrap-heap type or a non-consideration and mix leagues and enable only leagues ending up in the single dollars and not with my very much feverish bidding. I think that's kind of unfair but is last year is last year about the best. We're going to see from him. I mean to twenty six eighty four. How much room does he have to grow? He heard an oblique in the middle middle season. Did nothing in the second half and what I noticed about in his speed rating is like in the top ninety percentile. Hit Ten triples. There is not a big steeler but he could still twelve basis if he wanted to. He's got the speed to do that. It just seems a little underrated two hundred dollars stats match up with guys who were being drafted in round ten eleven twelve like his stats are better than yes. Your previous people are still drafting. An unemployed Yasser Week ten rounds and had a daughter. That's what point is that his stats matchup favorably with other players. That are going in the in. The middle of the draft yet does not going in the middle of the draft. So that's something to consider. That's actually an interesting point. Him with the speed is that his stats cast speed scores. Twenty eight point three feet per second grade. Some slight I mean just incrementally better than Kevin Visual and Adam Eaton so and actually actually just behind jarrod dyson who mentioned before. I think these are all my points. This is a guy who is like everybody in fantasy just looks at stolen bases. Were thinking about speed ratings. Well here's a guy who has a good speed rating dozen still basis. But that means maybe he could have his lance Berkman season with fifteen steals. Nope like there's something there I'm just saying I like hundred dollar late round pick and I'm a little surprised that he's not amid round pick. Maybe if I have a Redo my rankings. Because they're gonNA play baseball. I might do that. I saw you think so so in the ten team leagues. You think you'd put them in the top two fifty to qualify for this. Do you think he will being white top fifty. If he's not already there okay number. He's being unfairly as numbers. Don't jump out at you from last year. But they were pretty good. You know the number two guy in the majors wins above replacing Miguel. Ross of Miami and you might think I would want would me go us but I think he's got like a decent combination here. He's got is is not working. Okay I I can't pull it pronounced exactly what his numbers are. You would think if you do a search it would work. He's got three runs ranking. Rbi Five steals and he's batting three sixty three with a good walk rate. And he's leading leading off for Miami Miguel robots. We never thought of him as a guy with any power speed because he never showed that the past but right now. Miguel Ross in the simulation. There's something I thought when when Miami silent through a long term contract I was like a three year extension. I was like why. Why would you do that? Roth was already thirty thirty years old. Italy hit five homers nine steals last through the special about that. He's sending really nicely right now. Is it possible that Miguel Ross is a better to Manderson? Maybe like fifteen home runs fifteen steals but with a batting average. He can sustain. I know it sounds crazy but as a possible that Ross could do it to Manderson is doing and sustained. I'll lean to know but the question intrigues me. I I don't think that similar pop or speed to go Rojo's as Tim Anderson. But to your point about a higher batting average he is. He's almost the exact opposite of Tim Anderson. He makes incredible contact. We're talking about a guy who's got K. rates just north of ten percent and that makes them very stable very consistent of the batting average category. And I'd like an MD. David Fletcher as a as a better cop. Were Drafting Fletcher in the Twentieth. Round or so of fantasy leagues this year which I think might be a little bit aggressive. Miguel row houses really not much different player. He's got great defense so he's GonNa find spots candidates several different positions for the moorlands. If they want to look at it more utility than the everyday shortstop and he's not going to hurt you in batting average. I think that's a pretty good guy to get for volume and only leagues. That's yeah that's a good cop the at the NFL. Version David Fletcher. You might be thinking. Why are we talking about this? You know the best players are. I mean we can tell you who is leading the League in home runs in an RBI and these guys. You know a couple surprise your outright thirty seven. Rbi and second place has twenty four so Houston's putting a million guys on base and he is knocking them all in France as is hitting home runs. But I just I'd like to talk about some other players once in a while and we never would have thought about Migo. Ross but if he can have a season David Fletcher. Just did. You'd want him on your team as like your middle infielder in deep league. That's why I'm talking about them anyway. So we did the pictures on Monday with the hitters today and maybe next Monday. We'll go back to the pitchers and do it that way. I think this is kind of working. How we're doing our shows So what else do we do in the first half of the shows nothing really to rerun or you want to revisit a topic the topic yes sources the homeless than walks one? Who got very close to it last year along with Tim Anderson and has done several times a startling marquette. He got very close but didn't do it. But you know the last two did it one. There's some hints around here. There's a bobble head of said player right over there. The last guy that did it. There's a bobblehead sitting outright story. Auto Alfonso Soriano among batting title eligible for the last one to do it was Alfonzo Soriano. Who did it in two thousand and two when he hit thirty nine homers stole forty one bases and walked twenty three times so that wasn't even close. And why do you have enough on the story in a bobblehead? Why wouldn't I? It's it's I mean I've got Soriano. No Moi Tommy John Don Mattingly and jeeter and Bernie and Paul O'Neil and all of them by the way a hall of Famer was the last WanNa do before Alfonso Soriano. I'm sorry not a hall of Famer. I think of him as a guy who had a fall hall of fame caliber resume in his career. Sorry that's you now intrigued at it rose. Actually it was a guy that we all really wanted to take for the the what we call it. The greatest of all time teams Friday. Go algae coat project which is still going on. Vandross pick for project goat nineteen ninety nine any at work homers and steals in walks correct. He had thirty five home. Runs had twenty five stolen bases. He walked twenty four times and his name was. I don't know Yvonne Rodriguez is favor isn't he? Yeah that's what I just made it. Yeah that's what I thought making sure all right because X. creamy up I got him anyway. So if you're going to give us a question you gotTa make sure that some of the stuff is right. You problem is when we get into the steroid linked guys that everybody likes to talk about. Piazza fell into this. It's really hard for me to get into that gray area as to who actually made it and who didn't. It's ridiculous that topic. This is the thing that clouds our judgment for show. Now it's time for some Hash browns with Kyle. What you got today. You've got a few on twitter mentioned earlier. Just keep sending them to me. We'll get to when we can obviously not running note new baseball news. So we'll things many questions as we kinda have any ideas to keep engagement high keep relating if we do lose the entire season whether it's a similarly ago project. What are some things you're doing? Cheaper League mates involved actress and I were just discussing that. I I mean there's some people that are going to not WANNA play. I mean my my bottom line is you can't make any decisions for twenty twenty one until we know what happens with twenty twenty if we if whether they play fifty game season one hundred zero. I don't see how you can make any decisions on your future until baseball makes a decision about this year which I hope will happen. Within the next month Tristan I would agree. I mean my hope is. We're going to get something more concrete before Memorial Day. That's not deep enough into the year that it's damaging keeper or dynasty or dynasty or any of the different long-term types. I think we'll get an answer on a ruling and at that point and we'll talk about it on the show and when we get more information some suggestions as to what to do engagement like what to do. In the meantime we've been talking. A lot about SIM leaks. We've mentioned all the different styles of games want you give them a try kick up old strategy matic seasons you and I have been doing all drafts. The project goats that good one. We're currently illegal right now in which we did a actual ESPN draft and somebody in the League is running the stats based on the baseball roughing simulations so like I drafted cj krone because in the first two weeks he had like five homers and fifteen rbi. I'm dropping CJ chrome today but the point is like we're actually doing simulation based and it was hard to find a corner infielder. I gotTa Tell You I'm picking up Kyle seager about people. It's based on the simulations. Like so you can actually do a League. A fantasy league based on the similar you could do simulation league often and you could do a fantasy league off those stats. So we're doing that right now and I you know I'm not. I'm not checking the standings except for once a week when we see them in our email. But that's the way fantasy used to be to ask. You only saw standings once a week. We figured it out then. Dan Ronan Hardy. Prevent teams from tanking in Dynasty Leaguers. It's simply come with the territory of running such a league. I don't see how you can. I mean leagues right now. The first pick in the next draft is not the last place team the first team to miss the playoffs. I don't like that I mean simulation leagues and I hate this rule. So much where. The worst team picks fifteenth in the next draft because they tanked where ridiculous rocky believed. That will still going on our league. what it in but it's dumb dumb dumb dumped. You can't caring opinions in that leg just to talk about that specifically you can't. You can't do much about tanking I you know I I. I don't have a league this right now but how about a relegation type thing like the English premier league where the team in last place throwing a legal problem is how do you find a new owner to take over? In that league. Like I'm GonNa League right now league where me. Because they were desperate for an owner. They brought me back in. They didn't really want me. They just you know they didn't have. They couldn't find somebody else to own a team. So relegation guests could work. If you had a list of people that are next to the line and nobody would want to fish last there were things can you do? I? I don't know what you can do here. I the right answer here is simply comes with the territory period end of story. But can I'm ranting here. I'm annoyed about this word. Tanking I mean. Can we stop? Labeling people tankers in fantasy leagues assemblies. Or whichever I think that there's too much of this criticism coming from competitive teams on the ones who are going with a distinct rebuilding process. If you're a quote tanking the proper definition of that. Is that your lake? Provide some sort of significant incentive to teams that performed badly in the standings that you're the last place team you're getting a more beneficial draft pick or like if you have a problem with that then just changed. The structure find a way that's equitable to everybody. That changes the structure. But if you're putting the label of tanking as the team that's not competitive in deciding to rebuild for next year that is not tanking that is called rebuilding and there is nothing wrong with it and you have to just deal with that. In a dynasty or a keeper league that is part of the process. People are GonNa Build for future seasons. You should always be trying to contend at the soonest point you possibly can and I don't think that that's sort of black mark on a fantasy manager just because they're trying to do that. There's a difference between proper tanking and improper tanking. And if you do it the right way is really rebuilding and people ask Play leaves the veto trades if there's collusion your league you're on the wrong way. The people you play with is the most important thing. If you're an illegal somebody who colludes and I am. I'm GONNA leave somewhere. I'm sure where there's been collusion. It's hard to prove. Just if you don't like it leave the League but basically the people you play with is the most important thing that's why if you're an expert league generally does not going to be collusion because nobody would want to be caught doing it. I'll tell you one way in which we counter the possibility of somebody doing the literal tanking where they're making terrible trades and there's the risk of them bailing out of the. League is that I believe it's my football league. Only the the keeper Football League that if you trade resources related to a future season you actually have to place an actual investment in the metaphorical jelly beans for those future years. For example if you trade a draft pick for next year or something right now that you're required to play some sort of investment in next year's entry and I think that's a good way to keep people playing this on the up and up. Is that if you know. They're invested for the long haul. Not just for this season that. Why do you have any problem with what they're doing to make decisions for future years? They're already invested. I think I agree that there's no perfect way in everybody's GonNa be different depending on who you got sean. The article on ESPN DOT COM has Heyzer Souza's Ardo is an immediate impact pitcher and fantasy leagues. He wants to know what the ceiling is for his first thirty starts regardless of what season. We're talking about Well that was always my article What I like Lazardo the Lizard and I think that he would be occas rotation if they played half a season this year he did not make any starts broke last year efficient relief six times and was available for the postseason Look great doing it If it's a half a season he could be in that. Rotational your law. You know what I mean. Like if twenty twenty one hundred six game six months he probably would not have made thirty two starts but now could he make fifteen starts without fail? Probably could the upside to me is. This is a major strike out. Lefty if you've got two hundred innings season he could strike out two hundred hitters. I would say era. Three fifty off the bat off the top but Any concerns. I don't really have any concerns. Who Do you like better between Lazardo MNAYA mean Lazardo throws that big sinker? I I don't think he's going to let a lot of home runs so the baseball change might be important to him as opposed to. Mnaya but right and what? I'm wondering are we just talking about draft stock for the twenty th largest talking twenty twenty one because I I refuse to talk draft stock for seasonally know about twenty twenty one good even then I got a little bit more likelihood of giving a greater volume of the questions related to justice? I thirty starts and the ceiling. I would argue I like your three fifty projection just for kind of median outcome for Lazardo. I'd say the ceiling is an area below three the major issue. I'd have with Lozada was I'm going to bet but over. The I thirty starts his average innings per start. It's going to be shy of six innings. I'm concerned that they're not GonNa let him pitch very deep into games until he reaches the point of about fifteen twenty career starts and that means he's going to give you one hundred and seventy five one hundred eighty innings at best in which case it's going to be tough for two hundred strikeouts but that's still a very good pitcher if he's one hundred best case scenario one hundred eighty innings. Two hundred strikeouts to ninety are a great. That's a near top ten. Starting pitcher day one potential to be I mean. Obviously it's there might be five percent outcome but you think there is a non zero chance of these top fifteen for the next upcoming year for the next year of starts whether it's half as your next whatever thirty thirty two starts to non zero chance. I don't I don't think it's highly like coke. I think he I think he's Chris. Patrick Ed wants to know both arrogant tryst and talk about not wanting to have a limited power guy to rely on consistently. Does that change if you go superpower heavy early to kind of by yourself from Alex Smith later? Can you make up the difference enough early? Drafting all power or I guess. I guess that's possible. It's just not. It's not a balanced team. It reduces your options on constructing roster ultimately. If you if you have a mouse Smith you better make sure you've got everything else. Offensively Max v basis in two thousand twenty one if zooming. He has a starting job which to nose so I try not to do that in a mixed league. I'd rather not try to do that because you would. Mirror field stealing twenty bases twenty with eighteen. Overruns is a lot more valuable. He's doing more things and it's not just about like a guy having a lot of power as opposed Max myth guy. Doing something Mass Smith could end up the season with four home runs in twenty five. You can't make that up. No you can't make that up. The home runs and RBI. If you've got Alex Smith the competitively you need more. He hurts you more than he held a hurt him. More than helps you. I think the question effectively answers itself. It's going against our advice in the early rounds so therefore you're kind of forced to go against our advice in the later rounds so if that's the direction in which you choose or the direction in which your team gets backed into then so be it. I we just don't like it. We would prefer to build around steals even if it's just incremental steals fifteen or so from several guys on the first hundred picks of your draft. We'd rather build that way. Then you know. Do what you're describing. Which is you loaded up with all power in the early rounds that's going exactly against what we're recommending. In the early rounds that as long as we're talking potentially a shortened season. I know in much of this a week or two ago but for the last question. Are you more likely to go the pointedly over a Rotor League or head to head? Arado if we just call at sixty third season let's fifty sixty. I think if I choose if they play the Games you definitely go points of ARADO. League is GONNA be affected too much by small sample size craziness in winds saves stolen bases. Maybe even home runs maybe batting average in fifty game season. Somebody's going to bat four hundred. Why CAN'T LEWIS. Arise at the twins by four hundred over a fifty game season. Of course he can but it appoints league is more accurate so while. I'm a Rodeo Guy. If it's a third of a season I'll be appoint sky. I agree with you. I think Rodeo awards excellence over a greater number of games on the calendar. Yeah that this is the thing. That's very appealing to me. Is that it it really is. It's a race. It's like a horse race where it's very easy to tell exactly where you stand at every given second and there's something about the live standings that's beneficial there especially for people who might not be taking the super-duper heavy duty approach to this game. If it's a shorter year I'd rather be doing the sprint format of appoints league. It's just a fifty yard dash or something. You know exactly where you stand at any given moment. It's a little bit cleaner. Standings buys all make sense as we have questions today Trivia Eric. I've got one of the seven names for Tristan's five player questions they might be in there. I feel good about two of them and I can't decide between the other FRY for three spots. I'll I'm this one. The question was the five active players who've had a season of at least forty doubles and forty home runs at the same time. Same sees has to the same year of forty plus doubles and forty plus homers five actor players. Okay go ahead cop a feel good about to feel good about peak. Pools had to have done it somewhere in there three times. Okay to hype about air. I was looking coors field for the other one. I'm thinking Nolan. Aeronautical he had to have gotten with the big high batting average high power got. He didn't like two thousand fifteen. Okay now I've got five guys for three spots. All probably has a good guest next. I can't keep going. I want to hear okay. Go Kicking Eric Much. Miguel Cabrera when Trista. I asked the question like that. And he's correct in two thousand twelve. Okay now I've got four for two spots. My four and order of confidence would add. Forget order I have no confidence. These for tossups Bright Harburg Edwin JD. Martinez and Josh Donaldson. When he was a blue Jay. Maybe two of those four. Get Our answer. One of those is correct are not harper. Know the correct. Answer out of those was Josh Donaldson. Who did it in two thousand fifteen wouldn't have been high confidence todd on what I might do knowing you. There has to be a non obvious name. And I'll go with Baltimore's. Chris Davis Nice work. He did it in twenty thirteen year. Hits month no he he. He had like two eighty year. Didn't he hit a monster year? Three sixty right. Chris Davis Standards Two thousand thirteen. He batted let's see where he seven. Maybe even that high. Let's see two eighty six yup nicely done is. He can't be obvious names like I. I don't think trout's done it. Nope I mean obviously this questioning. Hasn't how many forty home run seasons is trout have to. I think yeah one or two. I mean I was also thinking Jd Martinez de Haven and Edwin just like lasting JD. Martinez feels like the average power guy. 'cause you can't. It's hard to do this if you're hitting two fifty. Yeah now the Chris Davis was the reason I pulled that question question. Are we done? Yeah that's five. You Got Rules Aeronautic. Miguel Cabrera Josh Donaldson. Okay back also thinking of another name all right. So what was my question? Let me read it again and again. This was seven plus war but no. Mvp's right since nineteen forty seven. One player has seven seven plus four C seven four seasons is my question and I guess Boggs he has. Six is one guy was seven. I eventually got this right. I look it up a little bit but Really good underrated player. Actually obviously see I go. I go to the defensive guys the guys who pumped up their war by defensive numbers and you know my favorite of this so much better people remember with Jim Edmonds or luxuries. The players older than that. That's why I was afraid of. Yeah I mean it's before our time I need a song play live So and one way that I knew the name is because I'll give this will give it away. 'cause I think you would know this part of it. But like he played after an employee after forty seven but he I don't think he played much playwrights. Rely let me check no create. Oh that's one way that I knew. He was the first guy on the cover of sports illustrated. Zac Give it away because it gave it away. I knew that I'm not good with covers other than the said finch one. Gosh it a lot of power. I don't think he was a notable defensive player but he had a lot of power walks. Yeah see the thing with this is I'm not going to remember my MVP's I will just throwing names out there somehow. Everyone if it is second in the MVP voting twice famer career wars. Almost one hundred though. It's it's It's Eddie Mathews. Chris said he see I thought he wanted. Mvp nine seconds of your time and by the way so in watching old baseball over the past month. And I actually enjoy watching old baseball. I don't show me. The local channel here is showing me phillies games last year. No I WANNA see phillies games from nineteen seventy five and nineteen eighty five Some of the MVP and Cy Young Award voting was absolutely ridiculous. Some of the players ended up winning these awards and some of the players. That didn't you wouldn't believe it if I was your mind. It's not just about wizard replacement people it's about just looking numbers. I mean somebody's. The media. Were voting for the wrong players for the wrong reasons. I mean relief pitchers winning cy young an MVP awards and Oh my God and you might think Oh cares. Who is your words? People getting into the hall of fame based on these wars Stephen Eighty seven. Nl Cy Young. I still don't understand. There's some awful awful award winners and I believe that was like a chapter in Bryant. Kennedy's book is and by the way our old friend Keith. Laws A book out. Now go check out Google it. I can't wait to read that. He's lost book anyway. I think we're done for today Weird show but hopefully a good one Check out of course. Nfl draft weekend it is on ESPN and ABC and Players in baseball. Try to get through the weekend. Please be safe. Please be healthy. Just take seriously man What's happening in this country and in the world is pretty legit at pretty scary and pretty much going to be over in. May so please be safe and have an awesome weekend.

Local Hour: Congo No. 2

"The Dan Le Batard Woodstock Gotcha podcast is brought to you by the capital one's ever card or four percent cashback on dining and entertainment Ju- percent grocery stores of one percent on all of the purchases now when you go out you can't Jim what's in your wallet terms apply. I just gotTa say I would never go in a hot air balloon. I was just looking up at good morning. America and they were interviewing a couple that survived the hot air balloon crash and at some point you just got a hold up both hands and say risk versus reward are going up and down and I just feel like the risks. Wchs are way worse than any reward could ever be what are the risks and what are the rewards. The risks would be dying and I feel like a diet anytime slightly higher. When I'm you know floating on in a balloon that could not see. I think we call it a hot air balloon. It's not like it's not easy to pop you think balloon and the like a little pin would pop it stronger than your average balloon is it. I acknowledged that but what are you guys feel alone on this. I mean I would not go on a hot air balloon either. I don't think but I I don't know how many people die on hot air balloons. I feel like more people die taking showers then on hot air balloon. Let's get into the the whole thing thing of more like everyone. Take showers exactly as very percentage. Why shower probably killed less people in hot air balloons but I would think body count showers have a lot more more than hot air balloons. I have some numbers for you guys from the time span of two thousand to two thousand eleven in the United States during this sort of twelve year period they were seventy eight a hot air balloon tours that had crashed those accidents involved about five hundred eighteen occupants. Those were ninety one serious injuries injuries and fatalities so in like roughly ten years so it's like seventy or seventy and eighty year crashes at the it's not that much which but I'm still terrified of it. I wonder how many hot air balloons they're like rides. There are annually for saying that a lot of people will to God's crash hot air balloon. He crashed into a tree. I still don't know if he's telling the truth or if he's just telling us an episode of Full House that that has to be alive combining things. There's a hot air balloon at downtown Disney or Disney springs average safe. That's tethered. It doesn't go up that high. It looks pretty high compared to some of these other who no you're not like two thousand feet in the air and it's tethered no matter what how does that work in two thousand feet in the air because I would imagine the is pretty thin up there right like do you get up. There and you're like debris. This is obviously coming from someone that lives in Florida. That's flat lake op- like people live in downtown areas wherever broncos playing stadium. That's yeah hi yeah I I would. I don't think I'd do well. I don't think I WANNA go to Denver because of that old steelers player that couldn't travel to Denver because Clark so Ryan Clark Ryan Clark is the player with sickle cell from ESPN ESPN's Ryan Clark was couldn't play in Denver Yep Really Yep and I. I'm not speaking out of turn. I believe Dominic Foxworth found out after the fact that he might have been playing with sickle cell. He told us about that yeah. It was a story that might have got cut from his nominee oriented year revelation elation yeah he actually played for the broncos with sickle cell. I'd rather not go the Denver then go to Denver and find out. I shouldn't be in Denver Right. I guess it's kind of like a hot air balloons white people can't get sickle cell really yeah. It's just it's a genetic disorder that only affects African Americans I could have potential issues with heights and it affecting my body Okay I. I've been bothered lately. There's this they're dolphins. Twitter is really up in arms anytime someone like Mike Greenberg or even Dominic Foxworth who had pretty good town yesterday on on get up. Do we have that sound Can we play it. you played it on the national show yesterday. It was pretty good. I WANNA play one more time here on the local hour because he makes a good point and then I wanna counterpoint that with something that I've seen from from dolphins twitter. That's been bothering me. Here's Dominic Foxworth. You haven't really heard this was courtesy of get up. It's unethical and morally reprehensible as far as I'm concerned because we understand how dangerous football is game putting guys out there in this type of dangerous the problem but you can put that aside I think as an employer you have an obligation to provide a safe safe working environment as you can also provide the people an opportunity to succeed these young men have committed their lives to get into the NFL and the expectation expectation is once you get to the NFL. The team will do the very best that they can do to make sure you succeed. They are not doing this. There and that's not fair because these guys are physically paying the price. The guys are putting bad film on tape because they're not trying to win and it's going to shorten their careers and you know who's GonNa benefit from the owner general managers and maybe the potential future coach. These gas going to benefit from it. They're going to be out of the League. Having their careers ruined by selfish team like the dolphins now the bad film on tape. I think teams break you down individually. Ah to hear from Dominique ex exactly how certainly if other parts of the team are weaker. It might have a direct effect on your position and you might not be putting up the best numbers so let's take that point and stick it to the side. Dolphins twitter's very upset because one of the things that I'm reading a lot is is nobody complained like this when the browns were tanking no now the media is all up in arms just because it's a dolphins as if there's this huge. Miami bias chemically are this up for are you. We knew the browns were tanking after they won one game in two seasons that was a result in hand to season's worth but going into of those seasons tanking was not the plan yes. They knew that they weren't GonNa win but Sashi Brown got fired after two seasons of one win if the expectation was to lose every game like it's being reported from reputable people in Rich Eisen. I was watching his show yesterday. Rich Eisen said that he had heard when the draft was in Dallas after to a came in as a sub that the dolphins had the rise onto a this is different. If SASHI Brown's goal was to lose every game he wouldn't have been fired. I texted did with Chris Mortensen and Chris Mortensen when I was making all these points about the browns tanking fans sure going into seasons thought man. We're trying to lose because we're making these trades and we don't don't have a good team but Jimmy has thought those seems. We're going to win six games. Jimmy has them wasn't in on zero wins. This by all accounts the the plan here is to lose every game to get yourself in the best. STRA- draft position and to trade players get even more draft picks yeah. The dolphins are going thing hard at this like other teams like like the browns have kind of done this in the past but nobody has never been this blatant and I and I get dolphin fans for kind of just being in in their bubble and thinking that the world looking at them but you know the browns yeah I agree. I think this is unprecedented right. Look the browns were obviously historically bad teams but if you go game by game they were in those games they didn't come out the season with can blasted by the Ravens and Patriots and Losing Games one zero to two ten aggregate this is they were what the browns in the past bid. What the kind of jets are this season trying to win but then they end up owing two and then they're like you know what this is offer. All seasons go off. The rails player checks out. They knew they weren't going in the season's going to compete for a super bowl but they didn't go this extra and Dolphin Dolphin fans. I think you're doing a bit of a revisionist history on what those browns tanking seasons were because it wasn't this overt you doing something that that we've flatly never seen before in the NFL. Don't get all hot and bothered especially when you're the same people that are all in on this tank okay. These are some of the consequences that go along with being sold over by it. You're just GONNA have to deal with that like this is tough because I've been pro tank and then I hear what Dominique says and he makes a Lotta sense like I get that you know these guys are more endanger football player even though they're already endanger even when they have a fully healthy talented team. These guys are in danger every week. It just enhances. Hanse is more when you have no talent and like the guy protecting you is someone who probably shouldn't be starting in the NFL so I get that but then the other side of that from from the fan doesn't the team have like the owner has a right to choose the direction of his team. Yes so that's that's the tough like that's the debate there those the like should should the owner always have to put the best product on the field for safer to enhance the safety of a player when the League gives it benefits you to go to Alaska Alaska. You get the first pick so I just don't. I see sides of this argument. Yeah it's a moral conundrum and we'll see how this plays out. I do think that the NFL's going to try to do something about this this week's mystery crate they're going to do well this week's misery crate. David Samson who's going to be joining us next myself and Chris Wittingham talk about promotion relegation Gatien and it's tied into tanking and we try to find a solution for what the NFL is facing with the Miami Dolphins and I think we've found some pretty practical ideas ways that the NFL could look at this example with the Miami Dolphins and maybe try to avoid it going forward coming up next so the David Samson show Stu gods here. This is supposed to be an ad for advance auto auto parts but they're not selling anything they are offering cassettes your car battery for free which is good because winters on the way and car batteries don't like winter they get cold lazy just like me you can have trouble starting so think ahead swing by advance auto parts test your battery for frape. They'll leave and install a new one. If you need advance auto parts thick ahead advance an interesting creature inhabits the flat arid plains of many an automobile dashboard on the bobblehead. It's most agreeable and will not along to anything despite having no brain brain function but when the bubble had here's how GYCO not only saves people money but also gift access to licensed agents twenty four seven online and over the phone not even more vigorously because he knows you should switch because yes switching to geico is a no brainer easy. Pablo had easy. You can get whiplash back to the local hour. Although it's a podcast. I shouldn't say welcome back to it. I don't think he went anywhere if anything he might have just hit like podcast. Ford thirty on your on your podcast and then you went too far and then he went back fifteen. That's the worst when you're skipping ahead in a podcast and it's like Oh. I went too far then you go back. Can you where you were. It's like how do I find the middle ground. You can't do it. You're often hear you might have heard this part three times in trying to get it perfect either way. David Samson joins us back from Spain and Disneyworld Peres simultaneously. I duNNo. I was confused by that last week. David welcome aboard how you doing today doing great. Let's get your review you out of the way because we're approaching baseball playoffs questions. We're approaching baseball playoffs. We got all sorts of baseball questions and I'll check out so so tell me what you're reviewing to well. I'm going to be quick because an article came out two days ago that absolutely made me crazy that they're thinking about doing a remake of the princess bride and that is truly inconceivable to me that they would mess with perfection their lack of creativity in Hollywood right now and original idea is hard to come by so they just do all these reboots and starting with these new streaming services that are just gonNa reboot all the old good series. How about one time having some writer later. All of them are out of work in WANNA. Write good things in many of whom do why not take the time to read a good script and actually give the money to produce it because I I don't care what stars they wanna be. In the new princess bride it can't be redone and listeners of lower who have not to call it lower by the way yeah it's a combination of local on our lower love it for those people listening right now to lower if not seen the princess bride pause not thirty seconds pause for the one hour and thirty six minutes right now and go watch the movie that was the beginning of Robin Wright has in Sean Penn's wife ex wife but this was maybe the most beautiful princess ever to appear on screen. The humor applauded Sean and his one liners and the beauty that Andre the giant can act and act very well by the way It's it's one of my favorite movies of all time and I got incense yesterday whenever I read that article because I I realized that when you mess with perfection you don't get cloning. You get imperfect. Nobody could ever do what Andre the giant did with like. Who would it be hypothetically early. I Kill O.`Neil Offset. That's a pretty good one. I saw someone. I wish I could credit them. I saw tweet that made me think why are we just remaking the good movies. If we're GONNA remake or reboot something why it should just be bad movies because classics asks could stand on their own like why can't someone remake Congo or attack of the killer tomatoes right. Why can't we just redo the bad ones and make I'm good. This is remember when you're doing a remake. You're going into the studio. Executives who by nature are risk averse and you're saying hey listen total recall with arnold made one hundred million dollars if we bring in Colin Farrell and Redo it. We've got a chance to absolutely make money and then you it should be green lighted. We promise how do you Green Light Congo number two well. It's not Congo number two. It's a reimagining of the original Congo Congo number precale so they're just going to say no because no Congo has like a terrible legacy. No one's going to want to see it. It's box office poison like if I try to pitch like hey we're. GonNa do speed racer but this time we're going to do it right. Everyone's GonNa Forget about the two thousand eighteen version. They already have were rebooting the entire. The idea they're going to laugh at me because speed racer was just box office poison. The reason they laugh at you is that you've had box office success before and you're a Newbie. If if you were in there and you said about speed racer and your Steven Spielberg then maybe they would be light it so Jordan. Peele can get a speed racer movie done. You would think no. I would not want does not eight Jordan Peele. Gordon peeled can call his shot right now. He can do anything he wants. I guarantee you if he goes to a movie studio and says the next thing I want to do is speed racer or Congo number two they're doing. He's got a better chance of doing away Mama number five so I don't agree with you. He's had two great movies. Get Not but what else what is what's his resume. He doesn't even have a Mount Rushmore Josh more yet. That's a good point but he's got the twilight zone. I mean get out was one of those projects that everyone said that he could call his shot and you're telling me he can't can't get Congo number two done. No economic will agree to disagree LE. Let's have a day well. This isn't postseason David. I'm looking at a headline right here of last night. We're seal stares down. Walk off single in the tent. Who's The cockiest athlete you guys ever had with the Marlins like a guy that even guys on the team were like dude. You'RE GONNA get us in trouble with the way you act jose. Fernandez guys guys have anything for him. There you big at you. Were that's interesting but like so guys on the Marlins. Were even a little dude. You're going to like you know. They're going to be retaliations nations for how you're acting. I would have thought I wasn't going to thank him. That's interesting now. When you say cocky I say self-assured and I say the cocky he comes when you're being self insured during an inappropriate moment. That's what cocky is. He was mostly self assured with occasional moments of cocky when they're cocky players like let's say. Aj Burnett he was just a guy who would there would be retaliation because they're just the eye rolling early in his career. Before he matured award he was the type of player who people would just look at it not actually take seriously at all but when you've got the talent of Jose it was a different story when when his selfish ordinance became cockiness people would sit sit down and say hey you know someone's GonNa get hit the Noggin here David. I'm obviously you've I've seen the trump ski stuff. That's going on in Boston where the grandson of cars Stransky is now in the major leagues and he made the major leagues you see the Blue Jays have a bunch of sons of former you know. MLB players. I'm wondering how many when you were running the marlins how many draft picks you guys did just kind of as favors to people like you're in the thirtieth round or something you know what let's take cody. Ross's nephew because whatever it's the thirtieth round yeah we actually draft Griffin Conan back when he was coming out of high school in the I don't know twenty eighth whatever round it was just as a thank you to Jeffco nine and and so- Griffin we a new Griffin was going to college at Duke so for us we were happy to use the tech because there's no limit on picks every I'd say every few years the owner would call all in say. Hey draft this kid. You know the son of a friend of mine or the brother of a friend a cousin of a friend and it's no problem it doesn't cost anything you don't give a signing ninety bonus to the to the player to the player to the person who gets drafted and the person just gets a certificate. It says you were drafted congratulations by the Miami Ninety marlins and then they go onto technical school plummer school or law school so it happens way more than you think wait. What do you mean. There's no limit on picks you like so so there's no penalty. Obviously you draft him. You know he's going to college but you draft them. Just you know to be nice suggest CONAN but then you don't get some sort of replacement pick for that too you no but there's so many rounds. It's not like the NFL NBA where there's limited rounds. The draft basically ends when teams keep passing. It's almost like in a AH poker seven twenty seven when everyone passes on a car that's sort of the end of the game and that's a little technical for Thursday morning in the draft. It's the same sort of thing I think the limit maybe thirty eight thirty nine or forty round but it generally stops when thirty teams say okay. We've had enough no more favors I for. What is the benefit for you guys to do that favor. Why wouldn't you just take a chance on some guy that you scouted and he's still there so he's probably never going to be anything. But why wouldn't you just go for a guy that potentially could do something for you as opposed to just doing a favor because there's not necessarily room at your minor league level. I mean you're not GonNa get when you draft forty players. You're not adding forty players into your minor league system that that month right the draft is in July or I can't even remember what month but you're not adding them into your system August September. That's not an issue. It's not like we pass on our to house to draft Griffin Conan when he was eight games. This is amazing. I had no idea that's the major league baseball draft. Wait hold on could the marlins then or any team. I guess technically like your by around thirty four and you're like I'm gonNA take Jeffco nine nine son and then everyone else seems okay. That's enough and he's like no. I'm GonNa Take Jeffrey Loria. His nephew and it's like okay well we can. I know I'm going to take David Samson son and one could just keep keep going over and over if they wanted to over and over and over. This is one good way to stop tanking. If one team just stays on the clock for several years there is still limits. The picks are actually done at that. Round of the draft picks her being done every three seconds it. It goes very quickly. There's no time in between the inbetween picks. Could you draft anybody or do they have to specifically declare for the Major League Baseball draft because I'm guessing round around four hundred and fifty. How great would it be if you just went up there and said we draft Lebron James. Yes there are there. Are there are ways that you have to register a a person so they get a number and the way the draft works as you say into a conference call we draft player number four or five to six nine six nine nice and then how does that work. How does this work. What's the like. Do you have to pay a fee to be eligible for the MLB draft like what's to stop me okay so what's to stop me from making myself eligible next year for draft. I WANNA get drafted well. You're eligible. It's the it's the teams it's the MLB. There's there's a pool of players. Griffin was not a pool boy not that there's anything wrong with pool boys. He was a player who was signed to go to do as a the top hitter in high school. We just knew from nine or that. He was not going to skip college period unless he was the first or second round pick which he was not going to be out of high school so it's not as though that that we were taking someone like you or me who couldn't hit a sixty mile an hour fastball down the middle that was put on a team. Could I potentially be drafted if I were to convince a team could I be drafted in the MLB draft no why not because you're old no SOS Tim Tebow practical the reasons. I'm not talking about practical reason I'm talking about like in terms of the rules could be drafted with the rules that are set up wow. I think you're a younger than Tim. tebow are younger than Tim. Tebow mom year older. Look what's going to be the team the draft me. I don't know you need to start campaigning for this right now because team. I just do this for you know public relations remember like the huge impact he made with Lewis Brinson all star campaign. How did that go the Lewis Brinson eligible wolfer comeback player of the year this year. He didn't hold up his end of the bargain this year. I mean how it went was during our campaign was his hottest stretch in two seasons. As soon as we started our the campaign he actually went on a little heater. That is true. I I am silent because you can't see me. If we were video podcast. You'd see my eyes rolling to the back of my head honestly though David he has I think his best two or three months stretch was literally during our campaign. That's not an exaggeration. Everyone was saying quit making fun of the kid right ising him. We boosted his confidence in all honesty. I feel bad for how all of that played out just because I th I Lewis Brinson was the centerpiece in the yellow trade that was coming back and he was someone that I think that this community could have gone behind and rooted for because he wanted to be here. He's from down here like if that would have worked out differently. I think that would have been a really good story. Unfortunately it just didn't happen and I think the part of it could. It'd be just the pressure that was put on him or that. He was putting on himself just to live up to this expectations and bring the marlins back to something when it just wasn't possible with what they had there or maybe they scouted him wrong. He actually was never as good as the brewers made him out to be because a really good team promotes players in a way that makes them seem that their way a better than they are. I prefer that explanation because the other one that billy had I think you're kind of pointing the finger at yourself because you're the one that put the expectations on a million. No no I oh I think I think that he thought that yeah he was a prospect and I think he really wanted to be here and lead the team and it's not too late. I mean and I mean why Lewis Brinson wanted to be here. I know you think because he's from here and loves local lows the MARLINS because the marlins had a path for him to start getting major league service earlier than the brewers did yeah but David it could be a little bit of both I mean come on like he could also wanted to play in his hometown now one last the question before we let you go obviously it's happened in the NBA for a couple of years now and now player empower minute sort of making its way into the NFL with what Antonio Brown did with with Jalen Ramsey demanding trade with what Minkah Fitzpatrick just pulled down here Miami. I know how you guys have handled it in the past but times have changed say superstar superstar player or just even like a middling player comes up to you and demands at trade. How would you handle it as Marlins team. President David Samson matchy about to talk about bad on another venue so I will only say this and I'll give it to you straight. It's not called player empowerment. It's called owner pushiness. Those are two very different. Things may write. US probably shouldn't put it that way. The players do not have a right at all to demand trade trade and then get traded absolutely no right under any collective bargaining agreement was owners are doing. They're scared to have players on the team who could be poisonous in the clubhouse because they're happy to be here as bad as outrageous. Christian Yelich did it and now he's brewer all he said was hey derek. I really don't want the air with no leverage. So how would you have handled that you would have just told them you know hit the Road Jack now I would say on the Road Jack now now. You're in the lineup tonight batting third later. How often did that happen while you were down here like with players like I want to I don't really can't name any players who demanded a trade. We were always believe it or not. We were trying to win when we traded the guys and five I've and brought in the young ones six. They were happy even in two thousand twelve when we traded them brought in new players they were happy when you sort of hold the carrot over a player's head hey listen. We're trying here. We haven't done a lot of winning but we're hoping to get better. It's like Miguel row house right. Now is rumored to sign a two your extension and what everyone is saying is he. He's such a great leader. He wants to be here when the rebuild is over. He's all excited. It is the biggest crock. I've I have ever heard and we go row houses. A great guy what it really means is he's never gotten a long term offer before and he has a chance to get security for his family and guaranteed. Aren t money he could care. Less team. Loses a buck twenty for the next two years or wins a buck twenty for the next two years. He knows that he's finally going going into spring training with a guaranteed spot and guaranteed money and that's a very big deal for a player like that so I don't blame him. What I blame is. If anyone around the team says Oh this is the type of guy we really need around here and then Rojo says I love these young players and I can't wait to help usher them into when new winning era in Marlins baseball that's just completely disingenuous all right very informative our continues with this most recent episode of the David Samson Show David. We'll talk to you next week. Thank you so much guys ladies and gentlemen. This is Congo number two. I'm in on Congo number two and I'm going to campaign. The Jordan. Peele makes Congo number two. Let's get some calls because we've talked about a lot on what that means. You'RE GONNA campaign. I'm just going to send a tweet okay. Du Congo number two backed up to him yeah. Hey at Jordan Peele to Congo number number two before we get to the calls. Did you see what Amari Cooper said about the dolphins no. What did he say that. They're not that bad and I'm just like stop mocking mocking us all right. Mary Cour Amari Cooper according to John Mocatta the Athletic Mark Cooper said when I was on a team that probably got be like that. I didn't feel like we sucked sucked. I felt like we had a good team. That's how I feel about the dolphins. I don't feel they suck. The report says so you're not looking your chops says I'm not. They have a pro bowl corner over there. Yeah you had to grow up at Dolphins Fan. Why is he being nice. He's from down here and he's not gonNA give them any bulletin board material and he is going up against the one good player the Miami let me dolphins have so Amari Cooper nice quote you that this team would be motivated by bulletin board material and not losing by forty five points every week and being completely defeated the entire season. It's an excellent point. I'm just saying Amari. Cooper doesn't want to be the guy to actually say something and as I take. It's last week. We never got due to a last week. Chris's trap games of the week. It's trap Thursday but I already gave out this week's trap game like and I looked at the schedule tried to find other ones. They only trap game. This week is the cowboys against the Dolphin. No first half it was plus eleven and a half earlier in the week hopefully locked it in because I don't know what it is. Now I assume after this tip malign will oh strength because of all the action works. If everyone bets the guys in any survivor pools. Yes yeah you know. I'm confused by your trap game of the week because you have it being the track of the week but the cowboys still winning I mean the spread is so huge s yes. You're talking about insurance. I remember what we said the weeks ago a real trap game is the first half is where you crush a trap game. They get they get in the half and the coaches start throwing clipboards and they motivate them like. I don't care about the next Sunday night. You're turning usually with a Mario Pass. What would you say you used to be a high school baseball coach. What would you do to motivate your player. The thing about baseball is you don't can't don't have a halftime what a baseball team has though this doesn't happen in the major leagues in High School and college the way you really motivated team in game is when they're coming in from the field. Let's say they had a bad. Any of the other teams got five renting. It's five nothing instead of just having them. Come into the dugout like normal. You say no everyone out here. Let's go go right here and you have a little team. Huddle right outside the dugout in between half innings and you just you know sometimes a leader of the team gives the speech sometimes the coach. You have to get in there and give the speech. I've have learned the speeches. Don't mean a lot because it doesn't like you know you give a really big raspy and then your team strikes out all three batters so you're still alive in your survivor pulled. Yes you do the thing where you buy multiple entries or you. Just go with one done that in the past this year. It just went one. I almost lost week one with Seattle. They won by one point against the bengals. That's what I want to talk to you. So I went shock last week. I went patriots. It's been a pretty chalk season so I have two entries in survivor poll. I'm so alive with both entries week like one. I did the dumb thing and I took the same team with both entries which is not something that you want to do but I was like I will straight up die. Zach Taylor and Andy Dalton marched into the twelve man and win week. One Seattle was sweating at won that game by one point so I'm still alive and then week two last week. I took Kansas City with one which is a road team so little tricky Kansas City and then Baltimore against Arizona with the other. You didn't go patriots. I think Patriots I'm saving the Patriots for when they have a tougher game. I would have thought that I would have been the week to go both but I am going Dallas with one so I'm fading the dolphins with one and and I'm in the other one. I'm going Minnesota over Oakland Aiding Oakland once again so who you going with this week. I'm also I tend to go with the theory of of just take the biggest favorites hope it works out and deal with it at the end so I I'm Kinda leaning cowboys. I haven't really looked at the schedule too hard. Who are the biggest sprays cowboys and the Patriots Hatred so the biggest bread so basically I'm asking myself. How many times am I am. I going to be so certain the cowboys are GONNA win a game and if you look at but if you have to look at the Patriots schedule like not not every game that they play is going to be obvious win for that. I WANNA use Patriots against the jets when they're on the road see I like using them occasionally like a really good team like if I'm GonNa go with the road because occasionally I'm GonNa have to win a road game in this process. I'M GONNA go down with Patrick Mahomes. Tom Brady right like late in the season. You never know what the Patriots I feel like the Patriots one of those teams. I felt like with the motivation of the dolphins being the last time like that's why I took the Patriots well. You don't know how many weeks you have Antonio Brown with the Patriots so different team that you pick him. Let's go out to the phones and this. This guy became star on the local hour caller seen last week. We go to big Phil Big Bill. You're on there. What do guys how you live in. Were doing great the Big Phil now that you're in our lives oh good to hear good to hear I I WANNA. Give a shout out to you guys for honestly making my mornings that much better so shout out to you does couple of things. I want to talk about today. we got so. Is there a certain song that you guys have that you've got a couple of drinks wingspan you. You're still in a little bit. You're feeling yourself that you only saying during that occasion you know I I wasn't listening because I I was talking into the other guys. I'm like you know what I made a mistake. I thought big Phil with somebody else. I thought you were from North Carolina and then billy correct me. That's Tubby so big. Phil's now I gave you such a great interest the good name though brought the appropriate energy but I missed tubby. You're not tubby. I'm sorry I'm sorry I'm not going to be don't be sorry. It's not your fault all right. Can you say again because we weren't listening. Yeah no for sure so Is there a certain song that you guys sing when you get a couple of drinks in you when you're in a little loop see little little Pitsea Z. that you'll only saying when you're feeling that way versus opposed to just any other time of course all the songs what Song No scrubs I'll get down with some no scrubs and they get a couple of drinks. I'll go on that song all day all them. I'm probably more inclined to sing. The guilty pleasures like the early two thousands late nineties. These boy band backstreet boys little elephants low ninety eight degrees. I mean hell okay. We'll go five like there's there's other boy bands out there. I know we only devote our time time to the big too but there were plenty of offshoots from that so I'm kind of an expert at the children and the TRL era Roy. What's your song when you gotta learn and get a little tipsy because your because I kind of I was thinking to myself. I I'll bust out some lyrics even when I'm not really drunk so I was looking at role. Roy seems like a guy who needs a little liquid. Kerr's starts singing Roy. What's your song I don't really have I didn't have liquid courage when I was doing karaoke with a mean so is that you didn't have any union drink tonight. No Oh you're fasting. That was a fascinating though you just want to have a drink no you you didn't want to have a drink was supposed to be you like your Scotch Big Phil. L. Says it's no scrubs. You got anything else for as big Phil Yeah I want to know what you guys have. Pet peeves are real big pet peeve of mine when people so you you know how people say like. I don't know intact messages and they'll spell it out. I D K. I really hate when people actually say that in person or like say. Id k. a or something like that do you guys got a pet peeve. That just really irritates you guys. The first thing comes to my mind is just driving I. I'm very you know everyone says I'm very happy and very lighthearted but for some reason when I get in a car and I see someone doing something stupid. I just gets format and I ran my steering wheel so hard. It's usually when someone doesn't maker you're right at a red light and it's like you honk them and then they all of a sudden remember. Oh yeah it can make a right here. It's like what were you doing. Why don't you remember that you could make that right that that that would be my number. One got mad yesterday because I was making a left hand. Turn you know when the light turns yellow and red two cars moment to a two car rule so sometimes sometimes one car stays at the very back line and not the median of completely making it mathematically impossible to cars to go so but this person yesterday went up to the median allowing me to Tuck in behind them for the two car ruled the happen so I call it makes a left some dude no some lady on on going the opposite direction who was hugging the curb about to make a right decides. Let me go in between the two car rule so she goes in between while. I'm trying to beat this red and make my left like that's. I got the right away there. That's super and then she got mad at me. I'm like late right right. I mean I kind of agree that it's not a two car rolling all like two cars go and I'm the third car might go but that's not cutting anyone off like what she did is crazy. I I don't really subscribe to the car but you shouldn't. You can't cut in front of me. I'm rude not letting her go. You could go at any time. It's the other light is not preventing you from going to make an. You're right lady Lady Lady. I feel like that's the time where you gotta just lay on your Horn to just let her have man. There's sometimes I wanna just like pull over and just look at somebody. Just like did like you know you know. Don't let me tell you let me tell you all about it. Let's have a conversation here. We're going to start a dialogue Charles. Barkley mean Mike. I fill you know what I love you to your good caller and even though you're not w. Ray Okay in my book. Bill Hey nice guy good energy. We go out to Adam who has a two million dollar idea atom. You're on the air for Guys Good Morning Gentlemen and Lady. She's so oh Dan all right so actually up to one hundred for multi million dollar deals. Whatever the first one while back you guys were talking about. WANNA make a theme park like Nineteen ninety-three universal. Yes instead good guys. Build your own theme parks. We've whatever lands you like so for example you can have like a fast in the terrorist land when they all different scenarios the topic on Nicholas Cage with all the different face off or go rhino whatever movies he may have Kazoo section for like Rahm ago What else did you put it in. Hey Man I gotta be honest with you. We were talking off the air. We didn't hear your question at all because yesterday talked about roller coaster sure tycoon you mentioned theme parks and I was like bill. You talked about rollercoaster tycoon yesterday. I'm so sad I miss it. Because I love rollercoaster tycoon we could talk about roller coaster tycoon and how it unlocks like the evil that lives inside a permanent. I was listening to their conversation then halfway there you talking. I was like wait. We did that thing game where no one's listening to Adam. I just wasn't listening to. Oh I was was listing. It had something to do with Ron. McGill and Zoos I had no it has to do with creating a theme park as I understand. It got US talking about rollercoaster tycoon really. You're not caring about what you were saying. No I care I care what what was it again so different lands whatever you want like stuff got interested residents Mosley fairly fast materials land. I know US and universal. He's taught versus arrived. We have a whole land dedicated to it to have like a Nicholas cage lamb Iraq from my mic on a recreation of San Angeles off demolition man and of course the Taco Bell is the only place that land for me yeah. Let's definitely do that. I actually like we're going. This is a a show centric theme park. We definitely need a Lazy River River in there for sure trying to think what else I have. A shameful admissions related to this so you said have the fast and furious land. I have never agree on the fast and furious. Reid a universal. It's existed there for a couple of years now and I've never been on Ed. I went on the Universal Studios Hollywood version. which is the part of the back lot tors so I think I see the same movie that airs during the ride and it is ridiculous? Is that wait a minute possible Vin diesels. He's like holding onto a helicopter way to tiny well at one point. That's the that's fast and furious that thing that you always see on the back lot tour where there's like a car coming around a corner and no no no no no no no no. No you made me think of that was like a stunt show or something. I don't think that exists off that sunshine. Those existing wasn't a back lot tour and universal goes Orlando in fact you know the jaws ride in King Kong those were just parts of the backlot tour in the Universal Studios backlot tour and Hollywood. How how crazy is that so King Kong was also a part of the backlot tour. I think they phase out and put it in the fast and furious attraction but they have like three different from rides in the back lot tour that are part of the back lot tour which is all hosted by Jimmy Fallon the tonight show with Jimmy Fallon. Jimmy Fallon Yeah you guys haven't been out to Universal Studios Hollywood. I've never been in California. You've never been to California billy. I've been west of Mississippi. I don't know if that's true. I just wanted to say that. Have you ever been to Texas no you may not have been west of the Mississippi. Look at a map hold on a second hold on where you've been in Chicago Chicago west of the Mississippi. I know you've been in Chicago sports question Adams Chicago west of the Mississippi. I had no idea it's definitely north of the Mississippi Zippy. I can tell you that I'm Google Chicago west of the Mississippi nothing really. I gotTA look at a map here. You know that what's what's the Mississippi matters in terms of radio call signs yeah yeah the W in case Chris. Cody didn't know this so. Have you noticed how like some radio stations start with. WW and then in La you have K. Rock Kiro Q. So if you're west of the MISSISSIPPI UPI your call letters have to start with K. If you're east of it they have to start with a w the informative local hour continues. We're learning so much today. I think the furthest West I've been his Arkansas. I think Arkansas further west Chicago. Miami is sneaky West. It is and I'm embarrassed to say this but up until the Atlantic. Oh no no no no. I know no but New York is further east you ever watch. TRL And it is it. Why is it so dark over there. You understand there in the northeast and Mike Darker in the northeast but it's really the eastern part of the equation because the sunlight is is getting away from them earlier. I didn't know this up until like Lebron. James left for Cleveland that you could pretty much draw a straight line from Cleveland to Miami. That's out West West. We are straight line from Miami to anywhere no yeah but no no no. I mean like North to south kind of close. I was like I noticed this. When I made the drive Alabama once wants and all of a sudden instead it was in central time and I was in Florida. I'm like you gotta be kidding me. I'm in central time and I'm in Florida. How does this this work. My Life's ally Adam. You sound like an idea man to me is that is that the cat. I had an idea for an APP yesterday that I want to run by you all right. It's a dating being APP okay now. You've heard you've heard obviously dating after familiar with how dating apples work yes or no yeah okay. So are you familiar with J. A date I am not you're not familiar with JD. It's a dating APP specifically geared towards Jewish people who are looking for love well. This has nothing to do with that but I was thinking of an APP a dating APP for fans alike Mary Very J. Blige and I want to call it Mary J. Date so if you're a fan of Mary J. Blige you sign up for Mary. J and you know that the person that you're dating is also a fan of Mary. J. Blige spin off for this really fans of Michael Jordan. MJ Date so it's gotTa have a J. Now you're. He makes them very simple. It's not this is very complicated. When I came up with it Mary J. Date Fans and Murphy Chris. Yeah like got another one. No it's not that easy bands of orange juice or the football player. I would stay away from that one football fans. OJ Date just for fantasy football is very very easy to come up with what seems a little easy target demographic and its fans of Mary J. Blige and then had to come up with a great name Mayor J and now you guys a I just thought of another one but it's very inappropriate yeah don't do that. I I wonder what it is. What is in there all right Adam. Well thank you for calling confirm. Oh yeah yeah so the second one so since obviously monetary vic people people. Chris said something on the air. Your million dollar idea should be a better cell phone. We're going to have to let you go. You guys sorry so long. Bad Cellphone Grew Dad. I'm sorry I wasn't listening jerks. Let's do do for the final segment of the of a very informative show yeah well. We've done three segments right. That was our third. Let's try to do a fourth segment and it's it's just you know five minutes of rollercoaster tycoon talk and we're back wow here we go five minutes. You'll rested rollercoaster tycoon talk now billy yes that's me he played the version which the only version really available right yeah. I've looked to see if there's like actual video game versions of non. PC and I haven't found any we talked about this yesterday today. I wasn't honestly quite sure which game you're talking about and then it. Kinda just hit me. Yesterday I saw tweet about it with a picture and I was like Oh my God I do remember that game so I feel look. I can help more with this conversation. Great the more the Merrier I made the sickest rollercoasters and would go underground and I would get the shovel all I know in make things high and I would make things low but also I was an evil evil bastard so when my park was full then I'd start doing construction and I would lift like certain parts of the ground round like just like one person who would be stuck like walking in a like a three by five square for the rest Sivy Tornado words and then sometimes I would start construction on a roller coaster or I would open a roller coaster. That didn't have a loop clothes and people wouldn't meet. They're fiery doom. Don't act like you didn't do it billy. Everybody's done it. Put It on the poll. Have you killed innocent. People playing rollercoaster tycoon billy looked me my eye and tell me that you didn't murder people for fun in that game no well look. You're looking at me and the I I mean what's the difference in grand theft auto. I was you know I was a terrible person does feel it does feel different because rollercoaster tycoon supposed to be innocent. These people have entrusted me people auto or innocent to when you're just like cruising the streets not doing all that time. Let me see what I can on top of a high building and just like picking people off. Oh Oh my God don't roller coaster tycoon. We're GONNA talk to you. GTE another day but Roy Roller coaster tycoon Sim city routes uh-huh Your Sim City Guy in just downloaded the Sims on xbox one yeah just yesterday yeah no not because Ed won't give US Credit No. I actually did that a couple of months back because I had not played the Sims beforehand. WanNa try it out ever yeah ever wait. You just started playing the sims now like in two thousand and nineteen yeah it was it was the new version of the Sims the Sims four whatever I couldn't get into the Assim. I thought I'd like living someone else's life but I realized mine was better so I just didn't want to know like real life was better and I was just like checking on a giga pet. Essentially I'm like why don't you found the man I like. Those in. That game takes a lot of dedication. Your lifetime essentially have to live someone else's life in real time and it's just just like Oh God. Can I just kill innocent people with my roller coasters already my death traps so I made one entire park that was just designed to be a death factory factory like you were talking about like the yeah but this trumpet death this takes like the Lemme change the speed on rides to a different level when and you just made a part to injure innocent people. Everybody's done it yeah. I don't know that everybody's dead billy that billy you dedicate a park into the no but you dedicate a ride. You didn't want to see what would happen if the problem was that when you did that then you're park ratings would go down and it will affect attendance and stuff so it's not like a long term success plan yeah but you could always create a new user profile so I had one user profile that was just built up to have enough money to make a park of do I would have a roller coaster that was at the edge of a pond and people would just be catapulted into the sea. Yeah what we're talking about the drop of fear I would have a drop that would shoot them up at a high rate of speed. I would go up so high the sweet spot if off the thing there was a sweet spot though that it could fly off a land back at play which was that was needed to get the exact speed right yeah but I wanted to push it to the limit yeah and so you you know they would shoot up in outer space and then I would just start taking away as like transient man. What a fiery death. Jeez it was great poor. Little digital people were just going to have fun with digital family. I'M GONNA make a request from corporate and then we just have like one. Pc from Nineteen nineteen ninety nine and we just put in rollercoaster tycoon deluxe and anytime someone wants to just go and loved to see that email. I think it's could do a lot for the Camaraderie in the studio thought of a potential grid of death punishment yesterday asking for I finally put together fifty all right. What did you think the Bristol Yeah. You didn't think of that. I thought of thought of it based off something I was doing doing. It was a team effort. Someone go to Bristle now you just because in Bristol we found out Alison was recently in Bristol. She said that she said that sitting. Sitting is the new smoking as the thought process so a lot of people spend most of the day standing standing desks. They don't sit you have to stand so then we yeah we came up with the punishment burst or you just have to stand yeah billions of it. Actually I think that's cool. I was standing yesterday. A lot hopes that Dan would come to me and say why are you standing and I was GonNa say sitting is the any smoking yeah so. He stood the entire show yesterday for no reason kind of have something like that but it's called the Oscar. The grouch and you have to live in a garbage. You have to say garbage Kale. Oh the entire show so it's Kinda like the bristle only dumpy yeah okay.

Local Hour: Anthony Chiang On The Miami Heat

"God's diehard batteries of the MVP of reliability the durability player of the year year after year are in the starting power hall of fame and the best part. Now, you can get them at advance auto parts yet diehard batteries are now at advance auto parts and you can score free testing and free installation with purchase of a diehard battery without an appointment put a winner under your hood adventure, auto advance, auto parts, and participating carquest locations, most vehicles, most locations, Roy caffey Wednesday, are you excited Roy I'm excited what a? Wednesday we'll Wednesday. By the way we're going to be joined by Anthony Chang later. Roy You're not. You're not feeling. You didn't feel the buzz last night the buzz news it was a rough night or afternoon I guess for Roy. Panthers. Because they're basically out of the pretend that they're in right now every. Down owed to in a best of five so they lose today. Over. Number one overall pick is going back into another draft lottery but. Not, great. Would you would you say that it's already over? Would would you rather than lose and get the number one draft pick her go on a little a little tear here into the playoffs I would rather go on a tear because they're going to draft lotteries. So not necessarily a guarantee in. have to believe that the Rangers are going to end up getting the number one pick. Tour. Why is that? They'RE GONNA lose Hendrick Lung Crest because he's going to retire gun need a franchising changing Blair the one with the Prospect that they have right now in the wings though you think this is raked. Completely ring she's I realize something last night that we're back to the panthers being the worst team in this town. Yeah. Can we talk about the Marlins for a minute? Let's do it I'd love to the Marlins came back after being. Correct. And not the worst team in his town that goes into Miami. Okay. That's true. Forgot about my wasn't really including into Miami in that conversation, but you're right interim is working the panthers. We'll get back to that conversation. When did they play again? Yeah. They made from the group stage staying they're done. So that's it. It's just this tournament and then. Back anymore, right you had to qualify for the playoffs and they did not self. Guys the Marlins who. I know a lot of people don't care about the Marlins came back after being off you know eleven days or something, and they shut out. The. What's happening? Just. Keep going. I'm sorry my daughter's not talking. The marlins came back after being off eleven games or whatever. They shut out the orioles in a game that wasn't scheduled. But then got reschedule I don't know what's going on with the marlins schedule was trying to look at it. I have no idea who they're going to play when they're gonNA play it. What's actually the schedule? What's not the schedule? I think they were supposed to play the phillies at home yesterday but now they're playing. The Orioles in Baltimore and they're doing a double header today. So they played. A road game yesterday in Baltimore than the first game of the doubleheader today, the road team the second game of the doubleheader they're the home team and tomorrow's game the home team in Baltimore. In Games, that were supposed to happen last week that were scheduled rescheduled for this week I don't know when the other Games will be made up. So baseball schedule right now or the marlins scheduled to say. A little bit strange. But if the MARLINS game back after all those days off, they shut out the. Day before the game they had a graphic of all the moves that they made and it was comical, they basically have an entire new bullpen who except like two guys. Pablo came in and had an incredible game five shutout innings. The offense that we thought I don't know if this is real or not I mean, we're four games in but the auto legit. May Be the best pick of that. They've made because they got him. I. Think he was deified and they got him. Look I'm not crazy. I mean I am but. Don't. Get. graded. Get Crazy we've been talking about how all of these. Championships would have an astronaut. The marlins will make a championship, win the championship this year or even make. The playoffs aren't totally out of the picture for them, and this would be one of the more impressive if they're able to Kinda, hang in there until their team gets back because I believe they packed for six game road trip at the beginning. Where they were going to Atlanta and Philadelphia and they were supposed to be coming home right back. It's turning into a twenty four day trip because they cancelled their home games, they were quarantine in Philadelphia. For eleven days they have eight more games before they come home on August fourteenth. If they're in the makes if they can stay competitive by like throughout that stretch and then they have their regulars comeback like I. think that's pretty impressive. Even knowing that this season is kind of like a watered-down season I don't think that. I mean obviously will never have to face something like that again no one's ever going to have to go on a twenty four day road trip again, they legitimately can make the playoffs the answer to what you're saying right there is yes billy it is not that crazy to think that they can make the playoffs but I think we should step aside for a second really celebrate what they did last night specifically because like to just jump off of what you said it that is so impressive after eleven days when the. Orioles had been playing baseball for eleven days. So they're staying fresh the MARLINS players. The pitchers are in hotel rooms, having bullpens with their hotel beds like they literally for eleven days could only down to the to their hotel lobby get food and go back up to the room like it's insane Brandon Kinzler on did you see this video billy of the marlins having like a roundtable of the see the for Small Brandon Kimbler? They're closer who pitched last night I. thought that that video was people that were affected in out. His last night him him and core Dickerson. Good. Okay. And they were I. Guess they wanted to get some healthy people and some sick people in that. Yeah. Apparently, they have a leadership council or not. So that was I don't know if those are all the members of the leadership council that they put out a video yesterday the day before and it was Miguel. Has who is the team leader who you know got corona virus. Alfaro who was the first one with coronavirus and Sandy? Contra who also has then they had Kuenz Corey Dickerson who were stuck in their hotel in Baltimore Yeah because even Hitler. Kinzler the guy who's not sick was saying how hard this last week was. So it's like it wasn't just hard for the guys that got sick. It was hard for Marlins just had to sit there and wait like there was so impressive what they did last night in that video why was insular eating Sushi, why did he choose that time to eat the Sushi as? The videos starting and Miguel row houses setting up what they're doing. You see the closer the Marlins just taking big bites of Sushi in the middle of this video. Look Delicious. It did seem like a strange time to be eating. You could wait fifteen minutes and just finish where you're doing and what I mean look whatever look especially because like they have to stay in their rooms right after. Three hours, so you could eat the. Funny. Though there was one point one, the go row house was going to him like all right Kessler I wanna go to you on this and he had just taken a bite. So he's like trying to chew really fast I don't know I was just fascinated by that the entire video. Yeah but he also. Thrown saying Tony, Billy Roy. Who is the worst team of the big fourteen? Let's take inner. Miami added US I'm confused before it gets to that I have a question for Anthony Oh let's do this. Hey, guys. Though when we met you, you said Aunt right and we've gone over this a couple times got like seven names yet. No but he doesn't. That's what I WANNA talk to him about because he said, he didn't like being called Tony but everyone's just calling him Tony and now he's going with it and I saw that he signed something on twitter Tony and I'm like, why did You give in why did you let People Change Your name? You shouldn't have done this if you needed to stand up for yourself and say I, don't go by Tony those that's my dad that's my grandfather that's not me I'm an I'm anthony and be yourself but instead you gave into the peer pressure how do we talk to people so they don't continue to do this wow. He wants to be an I think that's what I'm saying no. No. Let's set the record straight right now. What do you WANNA. Be who you WanNa be who are you? I feel like? I've got a lot invested show wise in Tony. So I stick with the new. Billy it's the Bomani thing. It's the WHO Tony He's Tony now, let's it. That's and that's fine like I have no problem with that like I come from a long lineage of Tony. So now I think there's a there's a time in every anthony's life where they go by Anthony until they they read that reach that next evolution and become Tony. So maybe I was supposed to be a Tony all along and I just grew out. Billy I don't like this later. I know that at Chris didn't ever think maybe I'm going to grow into a fact Chris in here we are years later and it's still stuck with him and I don't know that he likes that nickname. Share Fair also I also. This is kind of a betrayal here of confidence. I, don't know that I should be doing this, but we have kind of a history as a show of just renaming people and assuming that's their name and that name sticks like. I'll tell you two names. Of Should I do this? Private conversation your hair. So these are conversations that I've had with people where I've been told and I'm not gonNA say who the person is to you know. I'M NOT GONNA say who it is, but I will say this. I was told one time in a conversation. No one in my life calls me Bo. That's only something that happens. Not going to say who it was going to say I've actually done. That's a conversation for another another one at Stanley. Pablo Pablo another conversation they had. That I'm not gonNa say who someone told me No one in my life calls me dumb anywhere. No one calls me that that's not a name I go by. It's only here for whatever reason everybody calls me that. I thought you were going to say someone doesn't ever go by alley. Well that's. That's I. Forgot about that one. But that is another one that was like, no in my life calls me, Allie I don't like being called. Alley, Ilia, billion Roy guys remember this my first like month or so interning sitting in a corner. I was referred to as Christopher I remember that and at one point on Air I think I might have just been like, yeah you could call it whatever you want but only my dad calls me Christopher really don't want to be gone Christopher and he stops and now he calls me Kristen so see Tony my point that was that was telling you it's not too late if you really Got To see it on the air though yeah. If you WANNA establish something this is on the air on the air. On the radio show. I, mean, I think it's still going to happen regardless. I, just you know I want this I want this hour to be a safe space for you. Yeah. Where we call you what you want to call you if you WANNA go by aunt to be an I mean maybe that's just the friends thing with you and your friends and we're not your myself. Okay. Well, then we can go all I'd look I'm someone that doesn't like being presumptuous in assuming that I'm friends with people if they don't consider my friends. Okay good. So what do we what we call me? You guys can call me whatever you'd like no see this is the Practice one now it's not whatever you like what do you want to be if you were like, I wanna say your tombstone because that's really morbid and you probably would just do your full name on your tombstone probably would be. Like if you're introduce yourself to someone, it's too late man it's Tony. It's the the Beaumont anything like that. It's it's gone too far. It's Minds that could be like that could be a business decision for like the. The show but like here amongst friends like my friends, for example, no-one caused Guillermo like no one COZMA. Guillermo right. So that's Kinda like first day of school I'll be called gear by like my teachers and when to go to doctors appointments on Guillermo and. Outside of that, no one in my life calls me that. So if someone calls mcgeer Mo and now I shouldn't say this. But like if I like them walking Hey Guillermo Mike Okay this is some of that. Listen to the show. They're calling me my name that like most people don't call me right man though it's my actual name. So it's weird. Roy. But they'll call you that you don't like the. Everybody Calls Me Royston. Good. They call you anthony. New Middle, names Anthony for the people that don't know. Right well, I didn't know that. Yeah. What's your middle? Name Anthony because we can't have. Blanton. Roy. About that. Roy Thank you Thank you for sharing that with me. I didn't know that we're both brothers in Anthony. I wasn't shared that. Insurance it's talked about it's insured on my middle name is Simone Oh. Can we call you Sivan? Listen you. So we can call you that we want. I want to Simon now except that. Simon is a little pretentious I own an art gallery I wear turtlenecks Simon does things that that Tony wouldn't do wait. You just said things that you do. I don't own an art gallery though. Would you you would? See me as an art critic gallery owner owner but I'm just saying like I could see down the road forty years now like you seem like you've got the you could be a guy just tecate it. Yeah I don't know what else I think you. Talking until came to you. Yeah I was just like your. Like I was giving the vibes I. Felt It. I. Felt it when we were doing the was holding a blind glass of wine last that's what I was doing there. Yes. I saw that I felt the to Yeah. You guys can call not call me Simon. And call me on only. Tony. Can we get to the bottom of this Roy. The Panthers are the worst team of the big four like the panthers. The heat and the Dolph, the heat, and the marlins are like legitimately good. That I don't know then. Look what we did. Last night basically like I'm GONNA end up playing first base at some point for this team, and we're still going to be over five hundred, the panthers technically a playoff team. Yeah and the dolphins. And the Brawley will be either the dolphins have tour. I don't care what anybody says I will fight anybody until they play a game I'm expecting the marlins will be good good quarterback. That's the dolphins. Well. Dolphins haven't played a game yet gone based off of results the dolphins currently the worst team itself. That's how but I'm I'm projecting I'm looking forward. I'm taking new information I'm projecting and I'm telling you the dolphins are going to be decent this year that it's a compliment to the city. The Panthers are now our worst team and they're a playoff team other than mine. Coming up next wait is the Best Sports City in America. It's really good right now, I'm telling you while turning around I don't even know what I'm saying this sarcastic but I actually believe that me to heat and the dolphins are good. I mean if you throw in University of Miami. Team ever every single year they're always getting new recruits. They're always doing a lot of cool things and they go seven six. I'm going on the next. We talked around ball and K town because he's from Kendall with Anthony Chang of the mine hero. The great thing about facts they're proven. Affected crude. Oil contains impurities. Their base oil made from natural gas is ninety nine point five percent free of impurities and the fact that pennzoil is the first synthetic motor oil made from natural gas not crude oil. It gives you unbeatable engine protection. The proof is in the pennzoil based on sequence boy where test using E W thirty ask four at the Mo- poor service center at your local Chrysler Dodge Jeep. Ram. Dealership. Are we're joined now by Anthony Chang of the Miami Herald who covers heat we have been talking about in this local, our the evolution from Anthony Tony Right and I feel like every anthony has a moment in time. Tony have you experienced that whatsoever? Anthony. I have not yet. Yeah because because. My uncle and cousin told me so. Yeah I go by Anthony I. AM sometimes like friends and all that but I don't I don't get the Tony. We'll see maybe a little bit exactly. You feel some kind of way about. Tony. What's your thought on that potentially happening? I'm not feel like growing up just because my relatives name. Tony. I'm even Tony was like a possibility for me so. When I when I think I can be called Tony like my name's Anthony. That's so sad like filed you like. Your life had limitations and you could never be a Tony. Does a pretty. It's so Like I want to review it on something that we were just talking about we discovered through our conversations that Miami right now is the best sports town in America. With that just based on how great all of the teams are. I mean it's hard to argue with US tonight, right? Right I, mean. Let me just pitch this to and let me set it up the right way. I mean the marlins first place team they. are going to make some noise in the playoffs I think everybody knows that the dolphins have to were. That's a legitimate potential quarterback and the panthers who are in the playoffs about to get eliminated are technically the worst team of the big four teams right now we're not really counting Inter Miami they're. Just. Not going to discuss them right now and technically. But Anders County so you're gonNA see. Applauded Oh. Okay but. In the beginning this. Guy. See. Billy. He has the Billy Gill way of thinking here of that. When you say like I. Broward People Think of ourselves as Miami People Yeah but Miami. Miami people. Don't. Consider. Broward People Miami people so that's the disconnect that we have on the show. So I often say Miami sports and Billy will be like old technically length rate. So that sounded just like me was out of. Out of body experience look irregardless. Chris. Has decided the panthers are the worst team and their playoff team. Argue that. I'm used the Miami. King sports except when the Dolphin the three and thirteen then. Out So. Before we jump in the heat, you guys want to nerd out on k town like just talk about some denny's or something does anyone actually call it that? I think that might made that. Mike. Ryan is a first person her yeah. Because you said that you said k town before like I could talk about like to actually do that 'cause I know Mike does but I thought was just a thing that he invented. There's cave lands right? Kaelin like that part by the eight twenty, six they you see you next to where Tony Roma's used to be. Kate Kate Tom. All right. That was good talk. Case. Outstanding. Anthony Serious question what has this season been like for you in terms of covering like how do you go from covering the team? The way you used to every day where you're going to gains and your you know. Whatever you're interacting with the team. But now there's a bubble you're not in the bubble and you need to keep covering the heat. Is it's totally different obviously like. Ours is talking about it with the sunset our wondering on the phone yesterday Our workflow changed so much obviously were not in the bubble I'm. Not even in Orlando, Miami. And we're doing all of our interviews over zoom. It was like this and we have to ask our questions, but it's obviously very limited like after usually after a game, I can just go up to a guy like. Meyers Leonard does not play Gupta, Meyers Leonard and and ask them a question. You know what is what what's going on while you're on the rotation kind of what what, what is, what's the message that they've given you but after knees games, it's like we got two guys three guys Aniko, and that's the way it is you know it's different were managing. But just like everything else in life it's just. It's it's it's not what we're used the also. Did you WANNA be in the bubble like where they're asks the. Aspirations of being in the boat. Where are you? Glad you're not in. I mean I would have gone if they would've told me to go but that was never really. Considered, because it's kind of. It's it's not really designed for a one t right a lot of the guys in their national reporters. So there's a few because in there, but they're like the LA teams which. Chances all the clippers, the Lakers prior to the final. So it's worth it but there aren't many single TV writers there. So I would have gone they're asking But that was never really a possibility Tony Are you worried that the? Future of beat riding in the future of getting access to players is going to change forever now with covid nineteen, like let's say this season finishes that city start a new season and they've been talking about bubble season for next year or not on new think limited media availability is going to be a problem for you guys coming up. I hope that. I mean remains to be seen, right? We don't even know what is going to like we don't even know of next season is going to be like this hopefully not but. We. There's no end in sight right now. So I hope that when this is all over, we'll go back to some type of normalcy. but that remains to be seen I. Know like all not to get too journalism. To Journalism. In here, but it will do writers. Writer groups are fighting for that like to make sure that it doesn't change when things back to normal. So I hope not but we'll see. All right. So last night's are go ahead. You got now I was GonNa say it feel like killed the mood reviving we're having fun and then I ask a serious question I've gone down like a serious pie now. To get it back on track I can bring back here. I got something. Good. So last night I had my radar up. I see after the game the Bam out of Bio Jason Tatum doing that thing where they're at mid court and they're like doing that thing where they're covering their mouths and they're talking. So you always think something something interesting is happening there. So I'm like. Okay Jason Tatum and friends, and then I saw video post game. I. Thank you re tweeted this of them doing a post game interview and Bama's their heckling them long story short I. See a budding friendship between Jason Tatum and Bam so are you seeing what I'm seeing that they're going to bring Jason Tatum to the heat? Say this Bama's friends little. He's a Lotta guys like he's well regarded in the NBA and that's That's important as solid dwayne Wade like that's an important thing. So the more friends has. The butter is costing a white net silence good i. just see that I just see the next super team being formed there and I'm saying to myself if if Jaanus doesn't happen to choose us, we gotta start looking elsewhere for the next option and tatum. Nice fit saying, Roy. You're looking at your judging me Roy, what do you like what's going on? I'm worried that too many friends though might give him too many options. Wow looking at it another way because leaving exactly, and he'd have a lot of options because he has so many friends. So I think I'd rather have some with no friends, right? I mean he might. He might ruin those friendships because he's the picks one over the other the problem too true. When he has eight different options to choose from. Something considering. Edna idea national. Basketball. Coaches Association voted Mike Boorda. Jose. And Billy Donovan coaches of the year when it is or expulsion going to get his do. Yeah. I mean, it's good question. He's definitely he received votes. WHO's one of as coaches to go boats. Great. But I do think. Those two guys are deserving Oklahoma City, Losing Russell, Westbrook, and Paul George, W, where they are right now nobody thought that Mike. Bulldozer. Milwaukee has the best record in the League historic season even nurse at Toronto Loose Kawhi Leonard and be second into eastern. Right. Now, playing like the best team Bass Law, you look at the numbers. All those guys you know they. They deserve that honor and air expulsions up there. But. It always seems like. So's up there but he just isn't. One of the top guys a guy or two ahead of them. But one year old volgas do. He looks too young. That's my theory on this. You people just assume that he's just a young coach doesn't need to get these votes. They give it to the older looking guys. He's he's a young soul like. He's he's a young soul also. He's well, he's what everyone wants to look like you Kinda give off some Eric's bolster vibes by the way like if I was like. He really let it grow out the beard I feel like we could be tricked into thinking that airs bolsters on the on the show with us right now. It's funny when I first started on the beaten two dozen sixteen, I got that so much on twitter bearing. Who is this ED expulsion covering the team? Like what is I? Mean I get this Guy Catcher from San Lot so I think like if you're gonNA get somebody like that's a good person against good looking man. You're wearing a shirt with that guy's face on it Chris. It's not like. Those face on called embracing it. Billy people told me enough I'm like I gotta get that shirt and now anytime I wear the shirt public. It's a hit. It's a Hitman. You're that guy. Okay. So you gotTa tell this story building. Story ever they do because we went one time. A couple of years ago we decided that we were GonNa throw ourselves me and Chris like a a meet and greet, and we call van occurrence at of the Marlins game and So we went over like, Hey, guys, we're going to be at the Budweiser Bar in the fourth inning anybody WANNA come we'll be taking pictures or whatever I like accept unsolicited asked us to do. We just decided we were going to do this in have like our own Little Watch party on the MARLINS game right there was reason we did it billy it was because it was saying lot. Well. Okay. No I was GONNA get to that I didn't know that but coincidentally. Day So. Like through total people came up, we're like, Hey. Like. Hey how's it going whatever I'm big finish show and took a picture with us right. So while I was going on. A kid in his mom or walking by at one of them had a bobblehead of the guy from the San Lot that looked exactly like, Chris, 'cause the bobbleheads actually look like us like the one with the glasses look right and the other the catcher looked like Chris. So they were giving out those bobbleheads for whatever reason actually you want I think that's why we did go because bobbleheads looked like us. So the kids walking and he's like Oh my God like so excited wanting to meet Chris and he's assing Chris Designers his head and to take a picture with him and prisons like. I'm not him. I want you know telling the mom off like I just want you to know. I feel bad doing this like I o signed but like I want you to know this is not me they stopped none they saw me getting my picture taken with from the two people that actually showed up to our meeting. We had a big arm Ingrid of two people. So this little innocent fan walks by PC's. I. Must Be Him and I'm like I want to do this for the joke and take this picture with you. But I need you to know for my conscience that I am not him and. Kim. Just kind of like put his tail between his legs it was like. No No. No He's like I don't care and you signed it. anyways. Don't sell this on Ebay. Not Real an homage you'd get for it though Anthony. That's Never know some San Law fanatics something. Is, going, Ankle Okay Seems like it Team team said that the experts return negative. So You know the the next. The next question is, how much do you WANNA risk in the seating game right? Like I could see where that update later today on Jimmy and Goran. at five thirty when Andrew Park comes out but I could see them saying look, it's not worth. It's not worth the worst you know making the injury worst in seeing let's make sure the right to the playoffs wall. What was the deal with Jimmy on Sunday? He misses practice nobody knows why it was an excused absence and then everyone there's like some speculation out there there was a quote that it was quarantine related. So people were speculating that and then he's ready to go. Monday, like what happened there I'm going to respect his privacy. Okay. But but the good the good news is that he was available and this. Is. Not Related to the ankle injury. I'll say that. So, this country separate, I think the hope is with the team and people around Jimmy is at A. One game thing and it's something manageable moving forward. I know his ankle issues in the past but it seems like it was it was a back to back at played thirty one, thirty, two minutes night before third game at four nights like it's not worth it a long playoff run in hopefully ahead. So he just said, let's and they won without him. So do you do you ever wrestle with respecting someone's privacy in reporting stuff in getting scoops? In this day and age is tough. I think reporters are having to deal with that conundrum even more because of all coded intestinal that but but. Usually we'll have to deal with that as much as as as right now right now it's a it's a moral and what do we call it? When you know has woge bombs like what are we call when you break story? I just WanNa make sure I thought. The show I think we did. Let me my friend Jason Jason. Leisure who? I think he's my friend we wanted to see who is he? Friends Jason Lee. You're talking bollocks. We worked in college and he knew how much. I. Love The show. And he knew was a regular. And, he's like I'm Gonna I'm GonNa bring you up and that's the Chang bombs started like that was all intentional and plan later that. Cool. Listen to the. Episode. Now. Do you remember? We had a thing on the show where I said something. I don't remember specifically how I did this I ended up staying on the show like Anthony agrees with me and that became a running bit on the show I don't remember if it was something that you wrote and I just basically went to air with it and that one hundred percent and then told. You stole something that he tweeted the night before you said it as your own, and then you said Anthony agrees with me and then we looked up to see what he tweeted and realized he had tweeted the previous night. But in my defense I might have just had the thought and then stumbled upon his tweet afterwards and got it as confirmation I don't remember the specifics of it anthony you. I don't remember specifics but that's what I'm here for I'm here to like. and to influence people's thinking, right that's what. So I'm okay with it I hope I want to give you credit I do that more often than even get set on air I very often after he came we'll be like, oh, maybe I didn't watch it last night. So I need to be knowledgeable of ethnic Jiang's where I go I man your twitter page scroll through see your tweets read your article I'm telling you I go there before Greg Cody I don't I don't want to be rude. You just cut out the middleman here just bring Anthony Chang on if you're reading his twitter and saying exactly what he's saying when we talk to him, we have to get informed like it's not an insult that's. Like. It's a compliment to the man just call me after game song yes. Oh, tell you what you need to say you don't even have to credit me. I mean we the DMZ been open. The last couple of days on twitter said going to stay open. You know that I'm going to be tweeting you like before he games about Betty. Bringing bringing. All Right Anthony Chang. This was fun. Anybody else got anything we're good to go. I've got I've got some got some kindle related topics. Best go gator. I'm this is in Kendall but he's By far. Okay good. We're all we're on the same. Yeah. We're on the same boat there. Where'd you go to high school coral reef about my home was killing? Okay. So you should what what did you graduate graduate seven? Damn. So we're we would've been classmates at Killian if you would have gone to kill him. Imagine one. I went to kill our graduates he when he ten. Where digital? I went to Berlin but okay, I was. Summer once everyone's accounts for blood summer. Camp Like The biggest small world ever like evidently. Counter Summer Camp because I was to two, thousand, five, thousand, six, I think he probably worked together then wow what a nicer union this is really former co workers together again, I went to supplementation. Powell he's go that way homeschool. Is. This, what are you want to talk about Anthony Chang Yeah I I the other conversation a few few months back about what is the center of Kendall? No and I think they land pointed deland now that before I was very offended by yeah I think this, you want my opinion on what the center of Kendall used to be. The center of Kennel used to be done. Carter's, and then they got rid of Don Carter's you think, right? It's like one thirty seven. And Kendall and candle. Bright. So if you go all the way to Dalen Dalen in like the worst day, even like the sixties or seventies here, actually your except we're not where you are. But I'm here. So okay this is the center of Kendall's right here, but it's Kendall in US one Kendall one, I consider West Kendall of Kendall right. So you would be all the way like would-be East Kendall Day land because you're like follow a US one where West Kendall Ends I. Think West Kendall fans at Tammy airport is where I would end like West. The word gets forty seven problem. Yeah. But the but the Walmart I still consider Kendall and that's like one fifty seven. True. So what we do, we have a consensus in the. Media Center of the country. Yes. That's good. Yeah. I, just think not only is it geographically pretty central might not be exact centerpoint point of candle. But. It just has everything they're like if you go the country, well, I don't know twenty, four, hundred finished Sylvia. Marshals, you have a bunch of restaurants. You have Cuban restaurant. You have a movie theater a few like half a mile away Tommy country to me is the center of. needs to be so much better when they had all that stuff in their member before town and country really changed. They had like a movie theater inside the hell these different cool things and then something happened where they just tore it all down and creative what they have now but I agree with the senator Kendal town country seems good like right next to the turnpike because if you're going too far west that you're you're really down like one thirty seventh is Kinda down there. Yeah I it's just to me. It's the perfect. The perfect centerpoint is Kendall Tony country also would extend into the mall was like the Duffy's Duffy's in kindel to me is like is Kendall. Duffy's and Kinda like that you're in Kendall so that whole area to me that that to me is like the. Really say when you think about Kendall, you're thinking about what's more Kendall than the Blue Martini in town and country but who were next door Oh. My God. That was fun. I like fhm. We're GONNA. Have to have him back on I can't believe we've gone through Wednesday guys and we haven't gone to one of my topics that it takes. You guys early Wednesday. Yeah I know right Roy didn't even actually text you this topic because you weren't going to be here Monday you don't even know this topic. Unnecessary yet amazing. Inventions. I'M GONNA give mine while you guys think of yours are you ready for it here comes All corners Brownie pans. It's the best invention ever it is. Unnecessary what His Brownie Pan it's like it's like a snake. It's like a Brownie. Pan Is looks like a snake most so lakes don't have any corners around. They don't. Yeah. But the way this like an ESA like ev it's like making a Lotta turns so there are around. It's more like hexagon shaped my bad near right but like there's a ton of Corno wait hexagon. Each turn is like. No isn't a hectic on like Rangel no I'm not wrong in this one. I'm saying the way that they turn it's not going to be fast or just Google what is it going hectic on at six? But my point is when you're looking at hexagon though I don't think hexagon is a thing Exxon is thing hexagon man. You can see we're getting bogged down I'm sorry. Okay. You've done thing a hexagon thing. Nick God. Yes. He has acted on as a to D shape. So it is a thing. So this is. Just keep going no no. My point we got you got you. It's not around edges. It's like more like the way us? Whatever like ninety degree angle edges hectic on one hundred sides so You're right but. Van A pan. Pan that makes brownies where there's a lot of course we all agree when you eat a Brownie, you want the corner like just delicious. It is an unnecessary invention that I find to be amazing. Does anyone have anything that competes with that? Well, hold on a second I'm looking at what is alleged to be all corners pan and it's just A rectangle right? Which one do you have? Do you have the one that's like a rectangle that looks like a snake that just has a couple lines in the middle of it are you ready for this I have this one that looks like an s why don't you show it to us? It's going to get. I. Don't have it. That's that's the riddle stories. My my mother in law makes brownies like every. Sunday. I go to her house and like I'm just saying this is a great adventure. Did I say I have one I'm sorry if. You were about to pull one out. It'd be like I have this one is going bad and I feel like it's our fault like I feel like we're. Like. Chris no means well, Chris let's say. C. Plus effort in the story and weird grading and like I'm a really harsh curb. APP and it's really like a C. plus listen bedroom apartments. This is the best part where I really failed is that I honestly didn't even remember what this plan really looked like when you ask me. So when I started saying the hexagon thing I was like I just know this thing has a lot of corners I. Don't know specifically what does it actually look like you don't even know it looks like This has gone terribly. If fairness you brought this up late it's not like for getting. You started this topic and we're back Anthony Chang was awesome. Why? Should we leave all that in? Budding. Fine will leave it in. It's just I had a good point to make and I made it terribly and that's where we're at. All right. Okay. Look. It don't cut any of that out. But just now like say you know something that's an underrated invention and then say you know it's something that's underrated. It's unnecessary but an underrated and very good invention. The all corners Brownie Pan. What's that? It's a plan where almost every part of the Brownie, every piece you cut is appearing to be a corner piece as opposed to injured rectangular square pan and I know those are two different things I meant square. A, throw this table to relax. That sounds super super cool and chill I to get one of these. Corners of the best, I wish that all pans corners, right? And what do you guys? Do. You guys have them. So we went we went here I don't have anything that's as good as that. Good a good topic. It was a good suggestion. Yeah. Coroner's Pan. I'm looking up right now. Wow. This looks like a gun. Wow. I hate my life. See later everybody.

I Love I love your normally quiet at this point in your here but you're not saying well. I sat out yesterday's beginning because you guys were stealing that that thing from the Barstool guys but that's what people said. I'm glad you brought that up. I'm glad you brought that up. We weren't stealing. Have you ever seen like great songs. Get made and then people remake them all right. We like Barstool guys. That's a fun thing they do granted billion. I thought of that about five minutes before we started like this'll be fun and then I was like wow that is I've heard that that segment that that they do that was the exact same music that they who who around here listens to them you do mike does billy. Do you even know that do that sets. That's what yeah like AH I. We're about to start and Chris. Oh this is similar to something that they do it on like Oh like. Should we not do it then and he's like no. It's fine and then like everybody. Everybody was like tweeting. I mean like you you did this. You did that and then he's like yeah. We use the same museum like like you're listening as an adult billy now that you're married and stuff little life advice yeah don't follow Chris Judgment Follow your own follow your line and we took the same music to apparently let us that music because that's ESPN music like I have to tip toe around everything and I had to get espn specific music so like if we stole their their segments stole their music they stole the music from us because there's no way that they cleared using espn primetime realize though billy that what happened is you guys started the show with the typical five minutes of no practice that you start the show with now. This is what I'm GonNa tell you guys did he. He went inside and robbed the bank and came outside and you're driving the car and you didn't know that he was robbing the banks. You you are an accomplice. He is an accomplished to crime and he didn't no he was an accomplice idea and I brought up. Hey this is kind of similar something they do but I was cool doing it because I'm telling you it was a lot different. I have heard that segment that they do. It's it's it's better than what we did. They pre- they like write the stuff out so they have like jokes ready to go lined up billion. I literally two seconds before he was a worse copycatting padded Lazier version we disagree. I'd say more talented right because we spit bold for four hours. Yes that was sick in right out like that was sixteen sixteen minutes unedited like we could shot okay brats that are listening to this right now. Because I told Chris Cody we're going to do tomorrow. We're just GONNA put forty five minutes of silence yeah yeah and maybe every once in a while. We'll just drop in something because you guys are brats shouting at the judge wrap up on charges and you're shouting at the judge. I wanted to start with that again today to do too much sports sports more sports more you unless you stop listening. Please fleet is pretty amazing. How people listen to help people know the exact amount of sports we should do? They're like do enough sports. Stop and then they think it is is a volume control. They think our entire show is that was one decibel too much patrick mahomes. Please one decibel less talking about the Patriots Antonio Tonio Brown sports news for them. It's happening again on Monday. So if you don't want to listen Monday Antonio now don't listen on Monday because that play that thing nowhere next Monday. It's going to be more like there's because I'm going to prepare more stuff yeah well. How do they do it in all honesty? How do they do it? Do they. Start that music they do a lot of Chris Berman noises and then. PF teachers does a bunch of funny jokes. It's it's it's a good thing. I haven't heard in years but I mean that's basically what we did. We went around the league. We broke down every game right right like in like ten min gave way more stats than native billy was like every game given stats helped me out with something no because of forgive my ignorance on this. I'm not familiar with their work. I hear that we're often compared to them and I've heard from them that they get accused a lot of stealing our general vibe vibe and so there's going to inevitably be some crossover ideas when we're both kind of doing satires of sports stuff that's. That's why I didn't really take offence to people saying that we still have them like we're friends with those guys like strawberry. You're the one who stole it Chris. You're the one who knowingly like nobody else around here. Knew why I consider it a remake. We didn't steal it was like we wrote the lyrics to one of their songs and was like oh no one notices. We played the exact same music like we we were at a concert and instead of playing are hits. We played like a cover. We resolve to cover our cover band. Did people like it because a lot of people don't listen to both show no no. I I saw a few people you know saying you know cease and desist. I saw a bunch of do this. Every Monday and I saw a couple like fast forwarded sixteen minutes. It's like there. It was polarizing. Honestly I think it was good because it got a lot of reaction like we do stuff sometimes and I don't see any tweets about it. I saw a lot of positive and a lot of negative polarizing and I got more sports. You guys like WanNa get into more actual yeah more. It's well better my story. I heard that part of my take. He said that joke apologies Zach Lowe as the heaping at three seat. That's right that is right Dan. What do you think well who is Who's beneath them there? You've got ahead of them. You've got Toronto falling off so who do they have. You've got Boston falling off right. who do they have ahead out of them Philadelphia and Milwaukee Yeah. That's what I I honestly. That's what I assume. I honestly didn't hear the podcast was on Howard Beck podcast and I just saw that he said that potentially three seat and it just made me happy and I just got started getting excited this team. Jimmy Butler working out at four. AM early showing up early think. Do you think he does that just to like post it on like of course that's the whole point like dude we're not in season right now you don't have to wake up at four. AM to work out for him because they posted it for him you you can post the wake up like it hit the snooze button wake up and say rise and grind and then go back to sleep till about ten. Am To get rid of the whatever was happening the club that's what I always it was assumed with Lebron because Lebron likes to post these four. AM videos but he does it like once a month so it's like it's not like every morning you see Lebron grinding at four hundred. It's really one am right if it's for him here. It's one am on the West Coast one. AM Well. I think I think when he posted its at four and I was the last time you were up at one. Am I picture you. I'm falling asleep every night at like nine thirty one I stayed up until when when is the last one never minded activity like working out at one. Am just when was the last has time billy what I envision you being really old man home Let's see it's a lot of time that you're thinking the last time you were up at one. I was at the backstreet boys concert and that ended kindly your wedding. How about your wedding night? Were you out. Were you up to one o'clock in the morning on your wedding night. aw there was an after party. It was dude. That warning went late. I left it like eleven thirty and you guys said you went out after sure. You were up late that night. I hope you're up late one. I guess once yeah once tricky ones laid.

N. ziprecruiter progressive dot com slash Dan Ziprecruiter the smartest way to hire johnny got a tweet golf set when he was three and from that day on he was hooked all he wanted to do was Gulf Gulf Gulf. He'd be on the links before school after schools all he ever wanted was to go pro and then one day when he was holding his grandson and thinking about his twelve handicap Johnny realized it just might not happen for him but you know what did happen for him. He switch to Geico and saved a bunch of money on car insurance so Ooh that was good and so was hanging with his grandson. Dan Did you hear about the MARLINS. Attendance bump is a good one. Oh my God dude things where we are trending up all we can ask for his baby steps and boy. Do we have a baby step so last year for the season the MARLINS average ten thousand thirteen fans yeah so do you say to yourself. Things have to get better from here. What do you think think they average this year ten thousand five hundred ooh that's ridiculous? That's a small jumping. All you think horrible way to play the game yeah. Just I said baby steps right. Didn't we just fifteen thousand ten thousand sixteen improved by fans fans a game congratulations twenty four hundred dollars now you say to yourself. How far are we away from? Being average in attendance and I know the answer to that roughly six thousand years in six thousand years we will be the average attendance if we keep this pace of three vans season and I think that we can get there a little quicker. I have faith are the Marlins the last dead last in attendance. The ones that are honest is table. That's the thing is this this whole honesty thing not the best policy. Let me tell you right now. That's another thing people say the midnight thing is true because I don't go after midnight and I'm fine. Nothing's happened to me. Honesty is the best S. policy not sure that's the case in this scenario because what what are we getting out of being honest actually shame yeah what's the point of that Samson used to fudge the numbers by fight. I owned admission right shocking. He used to fudge the attendance numbers because there were no consequences to it and that is just about the most embarrassing way a you could cite improvement the way you just did mathematically. It's not the most embarrassing because it's not ten thousand fourteen ten thousand fifteen but it's damn close and and are we sure they're not fudging those three like are we sure that our miss counting. We sure that there's not a clerical error that maybe they counted wrong. like we don't know where they're lying. They didn't want to show a downturn and it was actually ten thousand fans. They're like we're down. How can we make it seem like rupp have have no one thinks anything about it? Three fans are they the worst though because attendance is down throughout baseball like that's a tough sell to get people people to sit there for four hours. I'm looking right now. Tampa averages fourteen thousand Baltimore no eighteen thousand. We're about half bull all fourteen only four that half the worst yeah. That's not good but you know we're moving in the right direction and we were talking today this team. I give them like a C. Minus help me out with something here because you guys actually care about the marlins and the marlins or a largely anonymous group I saw they had a nice story with an emotional miguel row haas where he gets to resign and actually wants to be here. They're basically giving him money because he's the only person on earth who plays baseball that they found who wants to be here so he's emotional national about it but you guys attached to any of these players yet. Have you guys formed any kind of emotional connection because the worst thing that you can have about a team is not angered not polarizing polarizing. It's not hatred it is indifferent. It is a lack of those emotional attachments. Have you made any this year anywhere you feel Oh this guy. I'M GONNA get to watch him. Play play for ten years. I mean now honestly the Magor. Oha's thing it was a nice thing. It was an emotional press conference but that didn't really do much magic felt like we were resigning our backup shortstop. You know it was weird thing to celebrate weird thing to celebrate like emotionally through tears yeah. We got to keep a backup shortstop. Wait no for him. That was a great eight moment like he's a guy that's been with the organization and he's grinding. He was never a big prospect and now he has security like now he has financial security for the rest of his life assuming he doesn't waste waste money but you would think with the contract he's had this big money for him and this will take care of him and his family forever urged should anyways I mean but that's every contract in baseball of their first contract but we don't celebrate a backups type player but we're doing it in this case because it's the only player that much did they give him. It was only a two year contract. Traffic told million I believe is total of twelve mile. Yes six each good math. Damn I by the way I I was. I'm emotionally connected Lewis Brinson but for other reasons and I I'm more. I don't don't think he's GonNa be here in ten years. If I'm going to be totally honest with you like the I'm I'm worried about next year because he's hitting in the eighties again this year and it just it's Kinda sad that didn't Pan out because he was the guy that seem to want to be here. In David's Hampton came on and pooh-poohed all of this last week but like he's a guy that seemed like he wanted to be here he wanted to be the phrase the face of this rebuild build build or whatever they want to call it and it just it didn't pan out. I don't know if he was over hyped or he put too much pressure on himself. For what you guys got nothing from a whole year of baseball you guys. He's got up from the basement. Return on investment. Here's the thing Dan like with this row has thing the row has thing less so but the don mattingly thing for me anyways and we talked about this yesterday put a timeframe on this whole plan and where this is going to go they gave don mattingly a two year extension with a pay cut with a pay according to Ken Rosenthal as they move away from paying managers of all kinds so he's he's making about two million a year now and was making two point eight million a year okay but it doesn't like that position as as weird sounds. It doesn't matter who you have there right now because next year they're not going to compete the following year. I'm assuming is when you try it. Find out these prospects. These people drafted. Are they legit or not exactly. It's a WHO's who three years of tank is it not it's the astros stuff it's the as competitive as you can with stink go ballplayers and see if you can find about ten of them that can play for you yeah and by the way that also coincides with the Chen money ending in twenty twenty one that's his final years on twenty twenty two which will be the year after the year after mattingly's contracts done that money off the books next year the Star on cash the money is off the books because if they pick up a sixty million dollar option on him. That's ridiculous so there's no chance that they do that. They don't have any money committed to anyone the problem. Money's got so like next year. I'd imagine imagine a payroll is going to be pretty low all arbitrations all they've been doing. It's fairly amazing to watch right. they paid however much they paid one point two billion in dollars to fumigate the place they are fumigating the place and they've put a tent they might as well put one of those exterminator tents over the ballpark for three years. Don't even invite the ten thousand and thirteen fans or ten thousand sixteen fans per game. Just put a giant is what is Oregon still the one doing the the termite tents just put a play baseball in a termite tent. Put It on the poll Gamma should the Marlins play baseball for three years in a termite tent but that's not entirely fair because if if they have pieces here that they're going to build around you look at it like a Brian Anderson you look at Sandy alcon three look at Jordan Yamamoto you look at pieces pieces that are like rookies this year three years from now. If things pan out they should still be on the team is San Diego should be the second baseman so this is kind of like two thousand and six marlins two thousand and seven more Orleans where it's not a team where there's lots of expectations but they could be pieces that you build around. It's it's just a matter of who are those pieces going. They just announced billy. Would you guys agree that the the Rojo's contract at the steady veteran in there who's a good presence in the clubhouse wants to be there. WHO's not going to do real Mutola stuff because he doesn't want to be there? Lock it in with Don Mattingly at a pay cut also for two years what they're telling you is. They're gonNA tank for another another two years yeah but what's the option. What are they going to do? They're gonNA invest one hundred million dollars in the team next year. But what is the option at this point. If at the very least this is something something that you haven't seen what the marlins before where they're sticking to a plan nine committed to not a popular one but this isn't going to be the let's throw ten million dollars at Edison Volquez resin hope things work out with him. Let Sign Jon Book to a ridiculous deal and hope that that's the missing piece like they're not spending stupid money. They're not spending any mother losing money because they pay hey too much for the franchise and this is what's required for paying too much for the framing. I don't know how much money okay these overpaid. Let's say by three hundred million dollars or something right about four hundred million okay so it's not like they're saving four hundred million dollars by doing it this way. It's they're not recouping the money that money's lost money. I don't I think this is a money making venture for them because they're never gonNA make four hundred million dollars in two seasons of course as they will if they sell the team in ten years. That's where the prophet gets made like. That's how how the bookkeeping work so you can lose money. Hell the heat of been losing money ear to ear. The value is in seeing how much the franchises appreciate I wonder though because the royal sold two years after the MARLINS and they sold for two hundred million dollars less than the marlins did so at a certain point like who's GonNa pay over one point two billion dollars the marlins ten years from now maybe but you say that billy but who would have paid one point two billion find one that they found competitors for that. They always find one all anytime there's not there's not such a thing as a team going up for sale and then not selling maybe New Orleans where the league took over and basketball but how how much maybe mantra Montreal like went went whereas all the examples of team going up for sale owners going broke. How much of that is there? I Know Mark Davis is flying coach but owners going broke was in the mcchord guy go broke. You lost the dodgers. Is that what happened well. I think it was an in divorce. That'll do it yeah. That'll do it. Look call me naive and I'll come right out and say this. I was one one of the most critical people of what they did when they took over this team but I find it hard to believe again. You can call me naive that the plan is. Let's let's just be terrible for ten years and sell the team and may pack all the money but billy what they're trying to do. What seems obvious to me? I think it feel should feel obvious to so you know matter. How emotional you are about what they're trying to do is scale back costs with the hope that on the cheap they could be better at player procurement your mint through the draft and through development than all the other teams and maybe they can be but if they fail after ten years they will have failed on the cheap while the franchise Chai's appreciates like that's that jeeter's bonuses are tied to him? Making money is a winning. They're tied to him making money today thing. If they've made a lot of money I don't but I think the more you pair the cost. The more you give the ability to make the money and then you're just playing random but maybe the astros get that good or maybe you tank for for a while and don't get that good if you're Sherman and you come in and buy a team that has nobody in the stands. Wouldn't that be your game. Plan like that seems logical to me. This team had no minor league system. There's no talent we need well. There was town but we need to restart from the minor leagues so we need to restart like I understand like the way he just said. It made it even more clear to me as opposed to like coming in with an empty stadium. We're spending three hundred million like that wouldn't made sense yes but it promises you. Nothing is what I'm saying. The only thing guaranteed here is that when they sell the franchise. It's going to make money for them. They might get everything wrong. They might get the bad TV deal. They might not assigned the right players but when they sell the it's all predicated on these things don't end up selling for less. You said the royal sold for less. There's market differences there. There's TV contract differences their market size differences there the Marlins won't sell for less they never do they never have and we've always had these problems. They always sell for more and and always will sell for more because these things appreciate all of men. They're just they're crazy costs who would have thought the people listening to this right now if I told them. Do you think marlins could go for one point two billion dollars. Nobody would have said yes to that. Nobody I just so compared to the Dolphin Steve think what the dolphins are doing is correct or incorrect. I think it's correct and I understand why it makes people angry I think with the marlins are doing is correct given their financial limitations. I would prefer someone be smart with their money and have the money they can't make money appear that they don't have during the best that they can. It's ridiculous. Look cutting for me. It's ridiculous because I was one of the anger is people and look am. I going to buy season tickets next year. No I'm not because I'm not gonNA go when the goal is. Let's win seventy games seventy five games and that's a vast improvement like if it's gonNa cost thousands of dollars. I want to be invested in something where there's a payoff for me. I can't go to eighty one games a year. I can't resell sixty games a year with the team the way that they are. I'd lose money. It wouldn't make any sense financially for me to invest in and his team which is the strange thing because they want the support but they don't have the products on the field yet and you just kind of have to trust that they're gonNA turn things around. It's a strange place for them to be in right now. Because they're dumping money. Look they dumped money into that ballpark and obviously it'll be more valuable when they resell it but they're also trying to enhance the fan experience but you know they have. You need a better team and they know that it's GonNa take three to four years for that team to be there the way that they want to build it I mean they are. They do have a better team. They have to prospects prospects that second base and shortstop Zondi as and jazz chiseling like these are top prospects that people expect to be really good. They didn't have those two guys years granted they gave up Yelich Assan and they gave up another good pitching prosper but I'm saying is like things are looking better like let's they've got three more fans your fame than they used to have. I love Billy's villis attitude. He's turned around on this Pro Jeet S- well we'll see we'll see how long this lasts so good news bad news. Everybody was was that billy in the middle of that our engineer was kind of fidgeting with things I guess and everything shut down so the last segment that we just did only only the people on hold her. I was GonNa say you say in the middle of that. I don't think anyone really knows no one knows what we did so we had roy breakdown the new breaking bad movie which Roy you WanNa do that again. We I can do that again. We talked about Coca Cola with big Phil. Yeah it's a great segment honestly feel called we talked to him about coke and we talked about three cap it because because big Phil's probably like where's my stuff. I had a good segment big. Phil brought up now so big Phil was basically big. Phil called any ask what your favorite way to drink coke from fountain is from a glass bottle title. Is it from like one of those twenty ounce plastic bottles is it from you know the fancy new machines that's pretty much it and we talked to him for like twenty minutes about coq so you guys didn't really miss that much and I'm sorry for the people that have just been waiting on hold that did listen to that so roy's excited about the breaking bad movie because he saw a trailer where there's a guy sitting in a car club. No is the body of work of breaking bad is really why I'm excited about this. One also Roy said it's his favorite show of all time it is yes dago. That's pretty much the whole segment up in about a minute the job buddy all right. Let's take a call hopefully this time it actually makes it onto lager. Let's go to Darien on line three dairy and how's it going today. What do gentlemen what's going on? I'm good. It's early over here in Sacramento just WanNa talk to about. NFL Game Pass you guys got. This and I have red zone red zone yeah yeah I mean that to. This is the real deal though boy this is middle of the week fix. They got these condensed games. They like play by play every single play every second. I can't condensed like thirty five forty minutes the whole game oh you're talking about. Are you talking about. NFL network like really it's like you sort of play play happens and then it's like close and it cuts to the next. He let that that's pretty good actually see the thing about this. That's frustrating to me. I've seen this for years but it's never the game that I wanNA see. It's never like the dolphins game or a game and I'm really interested in. It's always like some random game so I don't actually watch the slot but I do know what you're talking about right right well now. They have the APP so Chris you can literally just pick any game and then it's flam down to like thirty five minutes Nice Guy. That's the real the real kind of it lasts three and I thank you is that it lasts three and a half hours really only like twenty five minutes of actual gametime. Exactly Dan talked about all the time it's like what five or nine minutes of downtime twelve or something like that absurd but they do so much a they do so much better of a job of like sprucing it up and bells and whistles to make it seem like it's a fast moving game because it's baseball basically but there's people hitting each other and they wearing helmets but it's the same amount of actual action going on but for some reason when you're watching a football game you're like man. This is so exciting and you paying attention the entire time we're baseball's the opposite where you're like. I just disappear for three innings and I'll come back and maybe one run scored and I'll just see how it happened. We're football. It's like well th there's a field goal but it's been pun pun turnover. Whatever why is it? How would you fix the situation? Sir Me Personally oh you're crazy billy. You think I'm GonNa have something like that off the top of my head. I don't know what are your magical solution. I got two topics number two this new iphone update and then you guys you say I'll be updated your phone or something nope. I try to know so I I wish I wish I'd spoken you before this because I'm feeling the exact same way. I wish I had never dated it. The only cool thing is now I can use one one finger to type like Roy can on android and then as it happened. You know how you do the swivel wiping out anthony that that's pretty much it and then like my phone slowed down. I did you get a new phone or you. Just did the update now the acts but I just updated it for uh-huh. Whatever the new you know every year? They've got a new thing that just slows down a little bit force you to buy a new one. I think we're thirteen right there in thirteen thousand right although with that. How often do you guys get new phones not very often I have? I think two phones in about six or seven year really celebrate you have in your phone. What phone do you have is at eight s or something yeah? I've got a seven plus twenty seventeen or sixteen. I have a six S and I and it it's okay the battery life isn't good and and this is like from the time when they were like admitting to doing things with like the batteries and I'm like Oh you know what we're GONNA do. We're GONNA give every new battery and then everybody will stop complaining and I never went and I got a new battery so I have to buy like battery charging cases just for my phone to like get through the day but I don't want to get a new phone. Roy has a shit. What is on I was? I made a joke of your phone and I don't get it is like instead of like an eight s six s Roy Roy has a Shit S. What's wrong with this phone group techs?

Sorry we can go to Col- now as as distracting everybody all right. Let's go to Col- the on line one and I mainly want to do this. I don't even really I think it's topics nice today but this is one of our most loyal colours. Call the palm pilot with a palm pilot. I was born in Nineteen ninety-five with a palm pilot nineteen ninety-five baby. I'm super young compared to you billy. I know such you have such a voice that has so much age and wisdom in it appreciate that wise words now get. I WanNa talk to you about my beard. Now goes. I WanNa talk to you guys about how to take care of your beer correctly. I walk around too much today. I see uncapped unclean beards and I'm sticking at Ban. I'm thinking so first thing I'd do is you got a nice shower. Get Nice clean shower a clean your beard man get deep in your beard by specific beard oil beard beard everything just so you can take care of your beard beard shampoo you. I was just going to ask you that that cold because I'm facially follicly-challenged so I don't have like a same so I was wondering how people with beards wash their bielecki. Just use regular Chiampou or do you just use like the space soap like what you do but you by specific beard shampoo I do it. Actually actually is head and shoulders had a shutout the head and shoulders holders they actually Shampoo for coarse hair. You WanNA actually use soap it in very very nicely with and you actually ally why you don't WanNa really do it that hard but you WanNa make sure you get right and the beard yeah and do you like a pattern like I've seen before like with regular face face wash with beards whereas I gotta rubbing clockwise counterclockwise and I kind of wonder what the point of that is so there's something special that you need to do with your beard shampoo I do I do I lived up my Chin because of the of my beers long and I get right underneath the chin. I do all the way up and down and put it back down up and down and I and and I do and then you cheat cheat cheat cheat cheat up and down up and down real and what do you do about next year. Do you trim neck hair so that is just a beard. It seems like you have a longer beard so I feel like maybe you let the neck hair grow to see br. I go to my Barbara and Barbara's all all that for me. I don't trust another person besides for my barber. Now my barber is I think one of my Barbara's since I was thirteen years myself Russia's just myself. I'll show us out my own hand. I can't trust my own hands. I can't do it broke. Can't I didn't I didn't know Cole was such Bro. Have you've been holding out these bribes from us. Is this the same coal it calls every day. Hello a little bit here and there I'm slowly and slowly pulling back. The young man peeled EFFEC- Pune appealing it back. You're so deep so many layers to Cole. I have a question because I I do have a beard and I don't. I honestly just use my normal shampoo on it. I don't like go crazy. I'll I'll take your advice and look for head and shoulders beard shampoo but my question his for trimming a beard you said yours long but maybe on the side you trim it. What's the perfect length your hair dark? Because I feel like your hair's darker. You can go shorter and it still looks fuller whereas my hair. It's like lighter so like I tend to sometimes wanNA leave it because when I go like a one like like how often do you trim your beard because you your facial hair is interesting in that. It's Li- it's really uncapped right now like don't well no but it always looks the same like to the point where we're like. You wonder if your your beard is like eyebrows situation shrimp just falls trim. I don't trim it every day. So there are days you go with different different looks though it's hard to tell the next time when the now I can't sometimes I can't tell if you have a moustache. Sometimes you get rid of the mustache and you have. That's how you tell so when when you see my mustache going I haven't shaved in days because every time I actually shave. I go just the beard I don't what do you do you just trim the beard I trim. When do you go full? Shave Shave my neck. Nobody likes the beard when you go full shaving the beard. It's been a while. I do yeah I haven't. I can't remember the last time I did that. I think I did it. It has been since I've been with my wife because I remember doing at one time in her being like Oh. That looks Nice. I prefer you with the WOW Geez. I mean it could get that at all a little bit now a little bit but I'm not married again twenty three years old man I'm. I'm trying to live my life. How old are you twenty three twenty three because you twenty nine thousand nine hundred ninety five birthday December twenty second like Oh my God? That's my daughter's birthday. So how does that work because you get Christmas Christmas presents and birthday presents. How does that work were? You always cheated as a kid. I'm Julie Touche. Actually that's an interesting thing you bring up though because I have thought me and my wife has discussed the potential of when she gets older of hitting her with like a half like that's stupid right Ooh wait hold on wait. Did we talk about this yesterday on the air. I don't think we did what can we talk about this right now. What auto save it? I want to say but just in case because let's say it's a slam dunk all right slam dunk knowing people listening to us know what what is her birthday is December twenty second just like coal and you know we're like Oh. This is going to be tough. You know like Christmas birthday same thing. Should we June have like a half birthday for her versus. You know if you have a half birthday. Don't invite anyone because that is really testing your friendship with people. I'm telling you right now Earth Day eight is the worst I went to one. One of those and I'm like do I take a president is like what do I do. This is stupid. This baby's turning six months old. They don't even know what's going on. This is really just a part of the mom like this is ridiculous and by the way she's probably going to hear listen. I don't even care not to you. This is stupid no no more half birthdays. She's a lower listener. I get a text from time to time like Oh my God I heard this. I'm GonNa he listening to that. Wow Man yeah you were detonating friendships right now. Look I'd rather end that friendship anymore birthdays. I'm telling you right now. I guess if you're not right not lying yeah all right call good call man appreciate. How do we have time for one more call or we had done so? Did you guys notice that Cole hit me with the I'm Jewish as I was going with the whole thing of hey you got the birth of the twenty second Christmas the twenty fifth like how does that work. How did you get around the same time with a brick wall yeah he do? They stop okay cool. You'RE GONNA take another call well. Let's go one more topical call. Let's go to will on line five tall will. Has It gone today. Hey this is will they. I will reestablish that. I think that was a call back to a billy joke. I'm not sure that we're supposed to get down to brass tacks here. The mass senior smart I am is in no oh great down whatsoever and it's kind of frustrating to me. I watched the super sneak peek over the weekend it will I did not look. Let me tell you something. I'll shoot straight here. I haven't seen the sneak peak yet and I will also I will also tell you. This Fox. sent us a mask singer. It's hasn't been availed yet. It's like a chart to go along with the season with like XS and they send us like these mass to like. I guess put out the word for the Massingir. We haven't unleashed any of this stuff yet. It's here but here's the problem and I'm GonNa tell you right now again. I'm shooting you straight here. Tomorrow's not a good day for me. For the massing debut abuse they even sent a preview of the first episode that we could watch just with the eliminations revealed and I have to take it right now yeah like they've been removed route from the you know what I'm GonNa Watch tonight. Thank you for reminding me about that will because I don't think that I can watch the massingir tomorrow but I'm GONNA have to break down the following day and this is why big TV for me day on Wednesday big TV day for me. It's the big brother which I told myself. I wasn't going to get involved in this season. Of course I did all you thousand talk about as big brother I know every year I say I'm not going to watch big brother this year. I'm not GonNa Watch big brother and then I get hooked and then you know 'cause summer's slow time and it feels a couple of days a week TV so in the finale on Wednesday and survivor starting at where you're thinking billions nine nine hundred ninety nine were watching survivor. I don't have a defense for that. Okay I took a couple of seasons off like like fifteen seasons and then I started watching it again and I'm back all right. I'm curious. Why Big Brother hasn't become a talking on the show the way you like? It was a big thing days. No no one's ever stop us yeah. That's true I mean I have to pick my battles. I'M NOT GONNA die on the big brother. Hill it really sorry well. You're my guy okay. You're only talking about. Are you the one on twitter and everything and do we did but not anymore because that's just awful now and I mean over in the past. You know alert spoiler alert. They won this year. I couldn't believe I don't even I do not watch one second here but you you know I'm I'm into team mom to are the ones I'm still there man. I'm still with unions okay excellent now my wife does I can't can't narrator really excellent the ex on the beach so great because there's no point to it whatsoever at the end they win money any they don't win anything at the end they basically decide. Do I want to start a relationship with either my ex or with someone that was on the show and then you know as soon as as filmings done they they they're all gonna Cheat on each other and not together anyway so it doesn't matter but it is Oh God you're missing out on a good show anyways. She loves it. You're you're gonNA keep me on your forever. Let me get one last thing I got. I got to what's good for you in a while and no one ever really does wants to get any more so I'll just give you these right here and this is great because I know Dan I know they're sitting there quietly so it's finally have any other now but they both have to do with vacuums so the first one the first what good is the smell of freshly vacuumed the carpet it gets me every time and actually it makes me wonder about you. Remember Hugh number two and listen if you ever vacuumed you'll you'll hear this is probably a better version of the vacuum when you're vacuuming and you hear the dirt coming up as you're vacuuming like Oh yeah I am doing a good job right now. I am feeling it. I can hear the cleanliness coming in that vacuum. That's what's good. We'll forget. Where do you live just really quick? I'M IN CHARLOTTE CHARLOTTE. Because I feel like carpets aren't really a thing down down here anymore. I mean listen I. I don't know why that is though because all houses here now have like tiles and hardwood floors or like laminates like I don't see that much carpeting anymore we installed reinstalled limited ourselves but we just have carpet and our veterans all right cool all right. Well have a good day so I got a thing about the about the vacuum right if your vacuum isn't good. It doesn't smell good because you got an older vacuum. It's been around the block a couple of times so you don't have that fresh smell. It's more like a kind of dirty musty smell yeah. It overpowers the snow so you gotta get a new vacuum. That's my that's me talking to me by the way because when my when I or my fiance tried to vacuum the smell is not great. Do you have a carpet of we have a carpet in the room in the apartment. I could have been totally wrong then I guess I guess it's just a me experience. Do you have carpet Chris Know Roy. I know we have tell by the way brought in Cuban coffee and drink coffee and say that it does it. It's not good to face it will tell there you know what I will say is what I say to everybody so far better than anyone else around here but my point is just in general general this coffee to me doesn't taste that much different than other coffee I've had in my life. That's wrong not not yours in particular cafe seat though in general major it tastes like a shot of strong coffee checking back want I tell you all

Six o'clock New York City, a summer Friday not many left as we have detailed Betty Times before his Al Dukes we'll tell you who knows how many have. Well, we've got one today hopefully it's a good one usually on a day like today we would be previewing. Yankees and we've got the subway series can't wait. We're GONNA pack the Ballpark it's going to be awesome. We've got five games in three days. How good can it be? Well, we will get to that and we will discuss that because it is important the Yankees. Need to get themselves back on track because they've been bad the mets on the other hand had themselves one whopper of day yesterday out at city field and so right wrong or indifferent. We probably start their Brodie van wagon and foot mouth hot MIC. We've got apologies all over the place at the end of the day. A Weird Day in Maitland good morning boomers size and how are you Sir Good Morning Jerry Zog great to talk to you maybe apology invited you out for drinks. Last night, you aren't able to make it. I was in your neck of the Woods Yeah Middletown New Jersey at why do I owe you an apology i? was you know it's thunderstorms out and everything? You kept those kids out on the field and those? Storms No, there's no rain nothing happened I was driving back from middletown yesterday as I played golf down in colts neck and had a great dinner right in right in the center of Middletown right there. Actually Governor Murphy was act the restaurant the night before, and it was just nice to be out at a restaurant with a couple of buddies having a nice meal sitting down and I figured you know what? Let me reach out that Jerry recco because the owner of this restaurant said that Jerry recco lives right down the road about that and I'm like man he the. Owner knows Nicholas knows his celebrities and knew that he had a celebrity in his mitts and Jerry RECCO and I said, well, I didn't realize you live that close the middle because I don't really know much about Jersey knows the Garden State Parkway or the Jersey Turnpike and the parkway has like thousand exits on it and you got to stay in the local side or the express citing fear express side you miss your your exit, right? Yeah and then and then trying to get from the due process golf course that I play just that which I love by the way. From that to the restaurant, you got jug handles and everything else on my. I'm totally confused all over the place, but I'm happy to report that me and Janelle basically took three hundred bucks from both Doug. Wells and Vinnie score and Tino good for you. Yes, and we we basically bounce back from last year's embarrassing loss to those to meet heads and we took the money from them and I made them by dinner last night at rooster barrel and I invited you over there and wanted you to come over and have a cocktail with. I would've loved to. Sign some autographs for the owner. He loves you now had you. I don't know asked me a couple of hours prior I get the text at six forty two. Yeah. I didn't realize that you live that close. That's what I'm telling you that guy. So Nicholas comes up and he says, you know Jerry RECCO lives right down the road and Y'all excited about it and I was like well, you know we reach out the Jerry I'm in town I'll have come have a cocktail with the boys 'cause this is what boys do after they play golf and I have to tell you by the way that rooster barrel restaurant. Yeah. Awesome. Great. Some awesome. Awesome. I would've liked to have gone gridlock. Look getting a table when they're. They are practicing social distancing. So all the New Jersey social distancing police could take a chill pill and relax for five seconds. Right. I felt very safe in there although there was one guy in there sneezing they must have had like ten sneezes mean big heavy duty sneezes. Yes I. By the window so and he was using his Napkin. So maybe he has allergies or something I'm not really sure but other than that. It was it was a terrific place. You'll be able to get in there for a while simply because they are social distancing. So they have limited seating bright but I am here to tell you that that food is is top notch. So rooster barrel down there middletown treated me really well, last night. I'm unfortunately, you weren't able to come and you know I checked out yesterday I was so exhausted after yesterday's show talking about what's going on in the world of sports in the emotions of Dom Smith and what's going on with Jacob Blake and what happened in Kenosha. Wisconsin what's happened in Minneapolis what's happening in Portland was happening in Seattle I'm just what's happening here on our own city. You know it's just it's it's exhausting. It's just exhausting talking about it, and then of course, you have some teams in Major League baseball decide not the play other teams decide to play the NHL Pauses for two days. The NBA is GonNa Pause for two days and turns out that Michael Jordan is was the conduit between the NBA Board of Governors owners and Chris Paul and the and the Players Association so. Good thing Michael Jordan got involved and was able to understand the players plight. He also spoke on behalf of the owners and Michael Jordan basically brought the NBA together and they're going to resume. It looks like on Saturday the NHL will resume on Saturday and he guys banged up get a couple of days off hopefully they'll be able to get back to where they were prior to this day this today pause and and hopefully we'll get back to a little bit of normal but I think any time and I heard you talking about this morning. Anytime, we have something that looks like what it looked like in Minneapolis and Kenosha is going to spark. A major level of intensity and when you see what happens not only to the victims in these cases, also the collateral damage that comes along with it is just totally unacceptable in our society and unfortunately. You know. I don't I don't know how it's GonNa Stop I. Don't know if people are going to be able to sit down and have a conversation. Everybody keeps talking about these tough conversations that includes every aspect of it that it's a three hundred, sixty degree conversation, not a one hundred and eighty degree conversation because there are a lot of problems all throughout a lot of different neighborhoods in different backgrounds in different. Situations and states in towns and cities all across this country that affect a lot of people so. Hopefully, somewhere along the line, we can all come together and we don't all have to be so angry all the time and we can get back to enjoying our sports over the weekend. Yeah and you know some of the Games that were played yesterday were games and series that pause the night before many others didn't and they didn't play and there was a lot of confusion around. With the mets Marlins were going to do yesterday, we saw as it turned out the forty two seconds of silence they go out they shirt down, they walk off and they decide they're not going to play. So you're left with now the subway series starting today as they I assume they're going to be back on the field by everything I read the Yankees and mets will play. Today it was. You know I I know the Wilpon are on their way out and I get it and they're selling the team in. August thirty. First, as you said, few times this week a very big day in Maitland and four them as they will get their final bids from prospective owners. Yesterday was a bad bad day though for them just because of the way you. Know the the video was leaked the way it was out there for people to see on their website I'm not sure who's to blame but things like that can't get out you know the hot mic from from Brody who apparently had the story wrong. He's then got to come out and apologize you get the sense. He's not long for this job, which is not anything new you've discussed. that as well especially with new ownership coming in then the apologies from him, you get the apology from Fred, you get the apology from Jeff, just a we you know it has been a bizarre year and yesterday in Maitland a bizarre bizarre day and I watched a lot of it. When I got back from, you know from practice last night I got a call it the. Brody press conference. The one thing I'll say sit up in took accountability and accepted it and responsibility and apologize, and I thought that was the end and then we get the statements as well. So just so weird feeling around that team going into a subway series that both teams need boomer. You got five games here and to talk about actual sports for a minute you've got a med. Team that won the three in a row or they they started to play good baseball. Then they were flat then you get the game I don't know what they really don't know what they are and I gotta be honest with you I don't know what the Yankees are at this moment either with the injuries to them and not guys being able to guys not being able to stay. On the field, this is going to be for me in a shortened season. I think a turning point for both these clubs with these five games in front of us because one teams got to emerge with something positive Jerry welcome the pandemic twenty twenty where they change on a daily basis. Let's it. You know it's right. It's the political season the pandemic season it's shortened seasons. It's. You have you know college football people suing each other now you have the big ten players. So the Nebraska players suing the big ten conference. You have parents screaming all over this country as to whether their kids should be going to school. You have NASA administrators shutting down winter sports and not going back onto any sort of sports schedule until two, thousand, twenty, one, you have suffo- county sports administrators trying to hold out hope that they can play in the fall I mean again. There is no one size fits all for any of this. You have the social injustice stuff. You have the players passionate and the tensions that are rising in the streets I. Mean it's amazing. It's an amazing time that we living in I I I don't know I would think that if you are a I don't know a thirty year old for instance, and you haven't had kids yet or in the case of my own daughter who had her daughter of about six weeks ago. When you think about what the story she's going to be telling her daughter as she grows up about the year that she was born and you know how? Like sometimes people will give you a book on the day that you were. Yes. Absolutely. He'll be like a scrapbook of newspapers and things of that nature Jonah guest seventeen cents. Yes. I would think that anybody that would that has been born especially when he and Aria my my grand niece I would say that you know what guess what this is. This is your life and twenty twenty and I would make sure that I had from the day that the pandemic hit to all the way through. December thirty first and everything in between because this is crazy. It's absolutely insane and if you just take two seconds to think about everything that has happened, you know I did my final Final Sports Minute for this summer today I realized that it was eight years of sports minutes that I have been doing. Is it really eight years and over ten thousand sports minutes later? In this final one, I was thinking that it just. The amount of stuff that I've had to talk about over the last three months is just been insane. And a lot of it has to do with how covid nineteen impacted sports. But then on top of all of that, it's also how. You know the. These incidents that have happened in. Minnesota Minneapolis and of course, Kenosha Wisconsin with Jacob Blake is just it's just been incredible the intensity and the discussion points coming from all sides and you know the extremes on both sides basically make the eighty five, ninety percent of us in the middle just scratch our heads just make us angry so. I'll tell you is that it's it's a Friday. Hopefully. We're going to have some good weather. I. Don't know we'll have great weather tomorrow but I play golf yesterday I was checked out for about five and a half six hours and it was a great frigging day. That's all I can say because I was exhausted when we left here yesterday I can imagine and you know it's not going to get easier. You Know I. Think you need to take your time off anything go play you need to. decompress a little bit and you know I think on the other side when you come back from your break believing into Labor Day or I guess it'll be Labor Day. When you come back, you know it's it's Kinda like head down the NFL and maybe maybe we start to turn a page I. Don't know that we will because all signs are pointing to know normal. Really Right. And we could get you know if you listen if you listen and when the weather starts getting cold and people start going back inside, you know who knows what we'll get a second wave or not. I mean you know obviously the CDC and many governors are warning of that and making sure that people realize and I see signs all over the roads in Jersey and New York cove nineteen is still a risk covid nineteen is. Still risking, and that's true. That's absolutely one hundred percent true and we just got to be vigilant and you gotta just keep taking care of yourself and being smart about how you do that in the in my life is is gonna Ra- science and who has been doing it his entire life and you know for for him to be able to say over the last six to seven months that he has been totally healthy is. Just nothing short of a miracle and the reason for that is because he has kept himself out of harm's way. So that's that would be my suggestion to everybody if they could do that and continue to do the things that are necessary, and that's why going to that restaurant last night was so great. We actually eight inside in the reason we're able to eat inside is because the way the restaurant is built in there's there's. Plenty of airflow, there's plenty of windows that are open doors are open. There were social distancing all over the place as a matter of fact I told you governor Murphy was in there the night before, and then you know some of the social distancing police showed up because they don't like his policies and things of that nature I get all of that stuff because it's all politics but I could tell you I've felt totally safe. I had a great meal and it's going to be a great place for you to go to probably in two, thousand, thousand, five, Jerry, I don't think you'll be able to get in there. Simply because it's so popular why twenty twenty-five because it's so popular. Michael, the rooster and the barrel and I tell them I got the reference from boomer Esiason. I can't get a table I think you've used hold them like you know, hey, this is jerry. RECCO celebrity over here at Wfan and right down the road and you guys know who I am actually Nicholas Listener. So what if I call the ness for Nicholas? I would think you'd have to do that and you'd be lucky to get a table 'cause the tables are all again. If, it were a normal for normal time. You could probably get a table probably nine o'clock at night and it would be crowded but since it's not normal and they have the practice social distancing and they have to keep the tables and people seating away from each other I would say that it's going to be tough for you. How about this I call the rooster in the barrel I asked for Nicholas I say my Al Dukes in his girlfriend liked him in for dinner. Table or no table I you know I. Think Taylor Table Al Table Yeah. Yeah he's he's he he may. He may be able to help you out I. Don't know you may have to call Vinnie Vinnie Vinnie his table over there. Nicholas. You said he owns the place. vinnie's actually spend money there. So I got you know what? I'm saying it's nice to have a guy that actually spent money that you guys haven't spent money there because I couldn't get a table until now now are they maybe you will. Tell you between the jug handles and the. Hold on a second. Driving. Timeout timer timeout you make it seem like driving long island is a picnic. Are you out of your mind off the total picnic? He's gotta gotTa understand something in Long Island we go east or West or north and south there's no like jug. What other direction is there well. To get to the other side of the road you got jug can't. If you're not used to judge handles all right it it can be very confusing it's not confusing. By. Now, it can be confusing not that not only was I wasn't confused. I was showing a Guy Doug Wells who's from Jersey who went the wrong way? Well, that's embarrassing. That is embarrassing. What else is really easy when you drive in Jersey Nubile maps it's not that hard I have ways but line suck way apple took it over I don't want. What a shock I like apple but I don't know what the hell out what happened ways after APP over you know i. was never a ways guy but I heard that apple also ruined our dark sky APP. So I'm not happy about that. That's what is I don't know yet is one of the two right the guy yeah. Dark Sky they ruined that. Is Not accurate at all him. When I got my weather on Google problem, I have to tell you coming back and I'm sure there are people out there that are listening right now that were either on the Garden State Parkway Whammy or the New Jersey turnpike and just to beautiful roads especially departments the Parkway is a nice road actually with. that. Trees I always feel like when a lane is one, there's a lot of rain over there in that part of Jersey it's like it's like that part of jerseys taking a bath. Over there by the Newark and all those well, it's very industrial. Jain Norma's car wash coming right over the top that whole area there. But the Garden State Parkway happens to be one of the nicer roadways you'll find and you even have to agree with that rare bridges got like ninety seven lanes and have eight lanes. That is very true. I mean. I will say that it's Smart Planning Smart Planning yes I get it. But so I was driving in this this unbelievable thunderstorm last night and the The lightning bolts were ridiculous. Twenty twenty it was exactly right. That was been around nine o'clock. Yeah fifteen nine yes, owner we were off the field already see had had I known earlier than I don't know come over now perhaps I might have been able to do that. Well, I listen at the end of the day. It may hurt you getting a table but I had a table. So that's why I know I'm glad you enjoy this whole thing real quickly this whole thing and we're going to break but this. With Brody Van Wagon. kind of I know it makes them look a little dopey, but it also makes him look like he's got the pulse of the players like he's a former agent. So he understands what the players are trying to do. I had no issue with anything he said at all my issue would be the person that had that set up and had it live? That's the issue. What he said to a couple of guys who says it stays inside this room no issue and you know whether it was Jeff. Rob Someone must have had the idea to go out there and play an hour after they did what they did and it was goofy. It was a stupid idea I don't know whose idea was but I agree with you to me, he talked to his players. This is what they wanted to do. If they didn't WanNA play, they weren't going to play in any suggested otherwise was silly I'm with you one hundred percent I think he was in the right with what he was saying. Because he's an agent so he knows the players and he knows what they're all about. Know, but again it it's really. Unfortunate. That the mets have got the deal with this yeah and And to go after rob Manfred Rotman I got enough to deal with. And then to have to deal with something where it is totally mischaracterized. In the midst of it because it would it makes you feel is that There is a lack of belief in his leadership is a commission and I'm sure that there are a lot of people have probably feel that way. I'm not saying that that they shouldn't feel that way I'm not trying to change their minds I'm just saying that when you listen to what brody says it just really even though it's inaccurate, it does speak to a bigger problem that the commissioner of Baseball has at least from his point of view. Yes. Absolutely. Right. But that's where we're at that haven't been said. There will be baseball this afternoon and tonight whether permitting we will see and tomorrow looks like a washout. But then again, who knows we will see things change very quickly the morning show with boomer Esiason Gregg Giannotti boomer and Geo. Alrighty at six thousand, seven on the bandit is boomer. Gio in the morning Jerry recco in for the vacationing K. Shifting Gregg Giannotti he will be back next Monday Jerry question for you. I was reading through some of the NFL stuff yesterday and you know some teams had not practiced and decided pause as well and and. I know you guys were talking a little bit about it in the warm up show. So the question that I have for you, how many players at the moment are on the covid nineteen lists now up a month ago there were a hundred players that the NFL had placed on the cove nineteen kind of list that didn't mean that they had covert nineteen that could. have been that they were exposed to somebody with covert nineteen, but there were over one hundred players on that list as of today, how many players are on that list? Well I did see that they were zero positive tests from players out of thousands of tests from the NFL and there were only five positives from staff members. So I'm going to say on the list. Twelve on the list. For covid nineteen in the NFL as we wake up this morning, there is one player really list. We don't know if he has cove nineteen he could have been just exposed to somebody with covid nineteen, right? That would. Happen to be the Jaguars Offensive Lineman Ryan Pope. One. Cove Nineteen List right now in the NFL I gotTA. Tell you. I was very impressed when I saw this story I think it was yesterday. So maybe it was Wednesday I'm not sure but the you know the NHL in the NBA you get it totally the fact that there were zero player positive tests I wanNA say. Might. Be Making this number up i. feel like it was like over seven thousand tests that were taken your. Right to me remarkable absolutely remarkable and you know I know it's not you know they're not going home right now because if training camp they're also not legit bubbles either and they're taking it very seriously and there have been no issues. That's good. That's a great thing talking to a couple of the business managers for a few local teams know they actually are their own bubbles they really are they. Hotel and they go and they go to practice that go the hotel go to practice every player has been warned every player has been warned not to break the protocols and the follow them to the letter of the law and to to make sure that they're not putting anybody else at risk in to keep this thing as tight as they possibly. Can I mean look we we're we're all seeing the success at the NBA. MLS, and of course, WNBA and the NHL are having. Yeah, and it's it's obvious. So whatever they're doing is right there testing they're they're keeping their players away from the general public if you will. But. I can't go out to dinner last night. Giant player can't do that or jet player can't grind do that. Is that that the rule for every NFL team has to be. It had it. One hundred percent has to be so I told you on the CBS seminar, conference call the other day with the NFL the reams and reams of paper that they have and the the the regulations that they're trying to follow in the protocols that they're trying to follow. It just never ends and every aspect of the team. It's every aspect of the game and it's every aspect of the stadium and so on Game Day, you know this is going to be an just a massive undertaking. And for teams to half the travel and go into hotels. There will be some exposure potential exposure. So they are they are trying their damndest to make sure that they keep their players healthy their coaches healthy all the staff and administrative people healthy the officials healthy the stadium workers healthy. And they're just trying to follow as much as they possibly. Can they know there will be an outbreak somewhere along the line but as of right now, they've got this thing pretty good pretty well handled before get. Christie's real quick I would think you know based upon how well it's gone so far if you are one of the charter companies that are handling these football teams if you're one of the and they're very nice hotels they're staying in, I would think it's the safest time is now because you don't want your. Hotel, name airline name or Web War plus charter company. You don't want to be in the news for that reason. So if there was ever the safest time, it's got to be right now I would think, yeah, you just like again it's a key you can't see where it's coming from. So everybody's just got a hopefully pulled together and like I said what we've seen in the NBA in the NHL is nothing short of a Miracle IOS players in this regard in terms of dealing with covid nineteen and making the key to sacrifice of course, because they're away from their families but trying to keep this thing at bay as best they can they've done a a Huelva job they really they sure haven't last night two weeks away from opening night, and this is two weeks away from our first football Friday of twenty twenty Chris. Lopresti. What's what's up? Brought by winters, rose waste systems, creating a cleaner and greener long island to learn more visit winters Bros. Dot com first and foremost. Let's not overlook the powerful moment that did eventually take place at city field last night sandwiched between a lot of ugliness. Really mets and Marlins out on the field forty two second moment of silence in honor of. Jackie Robinson and then now the players on both teams wave their caps at each other. The mets are headed back to their dugout, the Marlins to there's, and now the mets players are walking off the field as well. Saluting each other by doffing their caps. Lewis Brinson has just placed a black lives matter t shirt on top of home plate. The only thing that remained on the field as the two teams went back into their club houses there was obviously no game last night how he rose with. The description there on WCBS eight eighty unfortunately for awhile was very unclear. What was going to take place? There wasn't a whole lot of communication at least that was being made public with the media. We can definitely say that the players seem to get it right led by Dominic Smith and player Reps from bowl teams, Michael Conforto, and Miguel row hostile you gotta dive into Brody Van Wagons Day? Because it was quite eventful. A few hours after he joined Joe and Evan on the fan a hot mic and a hot camera from a live stream on the mets website picks up a private conversation. He's having with an unidentified person who was off camera talking about the plan for how they were going to handle last night's game. The players had apparently already decided that that point they didn't WanNa play but somebody was pushing a different idea. Seeing. Superpower. Three Great just. Multi. So he's asked there at the end who said that any answers rob as in commissioner Manfred and then he's detailing a conversation he had with Jeff Wilpon idea. Dash Ross. Rob Not Just. Getting on the commissioner there that goes viral. Obviously, brody eventually releases an apology statement saying he misunderstood and wasn't part of the initial conversation between Jeff Wilpon, and rob. Manfred. Later goes the extra yard and falls on the sword with the media during zoom press conference I apologize to him publicly. I, apologized to him on the phone and I recognize that that it was a disrespect re disrespectful move to his office into him and was an emotional day that wasn't. Enough apparently though because you had jeff and Fred wilpon releasing statements after that late last night from jeff quote I'm very stressed and disappointed to learn tonight that are general manager. Even wagon made disrespectful and inaccurate comments about our commissioner a longtime close friend. Of Mine I hold rob in the highest regard and no or Brody's remarks reflective of my views on the organization, and then from Jeff Wilpon to clear up any misunderstandings, it was my suggestion to potentially look into playing. The game later because of scheduling issues, Brody's misunderstanding of a private conversation was and is inexcusable the other layer of events. So that's then you have to say that Brody bandwagoning is winning Jeff Wilpon 's. Understanding of what's going on because if he's questioning Rob Manford or the decision to come back out an hour later, who's ever decision that was that's what brody was really questioning. Yes. Okay and he talked about how the emotions of the day and he just wanted to be there for the players and support them and stick up for their decision. So a lot of back and forth but I think what you said boomer is right and brody's around the players constantly yesterday or was yesterday and. I saw the team? Yes. So he knows he's and might be again soon. Oh, by the way is going to be against the way these things have gone I think after all of this, you know Monday can't come fast enough and Fred Jeff Saul, we'll decide what they're going to do, and hopefully the bids are significant enough that they have to consider them. That's what. You got. The other layer of those statements that people are kind of picking at. Wall Jeff initially in the statement spelled brody's name correctly later when they used it as a possessive with the APOSTROPHE S. they built y instead of an I-IT's people are saying they couldn't even get his name right in the statement so. There's a lot of Arrows Vian slung. That's kind of funny. We'd be out of everything that's going on right now. That's the probably the most minor thing. Just it's funny. It's all right though you could have a great feedback from Dominic Smith. Emotional comments Wednesday night including from his own teammates here was Michael Conforto. But feel of a very, very small percentage of what? He feels and what he's been through and when you when you love guy like the way that the rest of his seem as do you know it's pretty powerful thing. So here's a point. You know I know Dominic said the day before he thinks that most difficult part for him is that people still don't care that just shows that there's hate in people's heart. So when you hear Michael Conforto say that you know Dominic Smith the surrounded by people who actually love him yeah. Who Actually do care for him and actually showed that by not playing yesterday. So you know there are there are all these explosive statements made and we take them. At face value. Yes it's. There are a lot of people care. That's why there are a lot of people that didn't play and so dominic is probably obviously emotional and and it's intense for him and I understand that but. Making declarative statements sometimes aren't totally accurate. He did acknowledge the outpour of support. He got about how it made him feel like they are on the right path to change. So obviously overwhelmed from that aspect of how much he heard from people not just from his own team but he also mentioned that just since Wednesday night's comments he heard. From players from MLB, the NBA, the NFL, as well as multiple TV networks, and that there were people pledging money time and support to help his baseball generations foundation. So that's what he wants. He wants himself and other black players to go back into their communities to leave a positive message and give people hope and give kids. Hope that's what he wants. And that's and think we all support that for sure. Now back to brody, he did discuss actual baseball matters earlier in the day with Joe. Evan here on the fan as you'd expect they grilled him on why Jacob Degrom was held until Wednesday rather than pitching in Tuesday's double header brody says the covert layoff was the deciding factor didn't allow Jacob get his normal pre-start and in. Between, start routine and you know coming off of the mid start ten days earlier, it was too important in too much day to to try to short circuit him just so he can pitch against the Yankees meanwhile trade deadline coming fast the mets obviously aren't playing good baseball to this point one, stop them for making a deal though even if it means giving up more prospects to make. I'm not going to be. Afraid to make a deal that I think puts us in a position to to continue our path to try and to contend win this year and also put us in a position to contend for years going forward. Talked about how you know they don't want to look at the past moves they've made that haven't worked out as far as having you know what I would say. This time if I were going to make a bid on Monday, my bid would include no trades. Don't you make a trade don't stand by just stand Pat I want the team Wade is right now and let me get my guys in there and figure this out. Please stop doing stupid stuff. We are expecting Montgomery and Michael Walkup for game wanted Yankee. Stadium this afternoon as the Yankees and the mets will hopefully get started with this five game series. Our coverage begins at three twenty five. Both teams are TVD for the nightcap though Aaron. Boone detail Joe and Evan. It would likely be bullpen game for them. Then again, Boone says the Yanks haven't had a chance to meet as a team and discuss what's been. Going on across the country and in Pro Sports. So not entirely sure they'll play or if will be some sort of demonstration on their part when we get together as a team and have those discussions and see where we are, you know twenty four hours from now or sixteen hours from now have a better lay of the land. So stay tuned on that as far as the status of Aaron Judge in his calf. Pretty much looks like the same spot and everything You know it does seem minor in nature again but but certainly something that could turn into an I l. stand against. The. Next five games at least. Yeah. You might very well, you know they have to either I think it would be very smart very prudent on their part very cautious. Maybe maybe they want to keep a few other guys how to that'd be nice. Sure. Well, see, Dj Lemay you back some. Good Spoon said that he hit on the field live yesterday he's doing great and he could be activated Saturday you said they weren't back together. Who Wasn't? Oh you said Dj you. I, thought you said the Yankees haven't been together Aaron Boone said that he said that they haven't had a chance to heard the cut. They haven't got a chance to get together as an entire. An entire team. You had the injured guys in there working out yesterday and you had Lemay Giancarlo Stanton are a long lost friend that was out on the field taking live. Also, labor tours was they're doing some running. He's coming along nicely with his hamstring's but boone said, he's a little further away then lemay him. You had seven more and they'll be games postponed as protests, Jacob Blake shooting basically, all teams who were not involved in a double header yesterday did not play but she did have four double dips. The pirates swept the cardinals, red swept the brewers sunny. How good you mentioned the Reds Sunny? Do you see what Sunny Gray is doable? Third. These five and one with an era of like one point nine. He's awesome man Yankee should get him. Oh. But it just goes to show that you really have to match the personality with a either the team or the city or the situation because he has been such a good pitcher elsewhere and here he just wasn't, and then he goes right back to being such a good pitcher. It really is fascinating. Well, that's why Jacob degrom is perfect for here. Close perfect for here I don't know if taxi right or long for here you know I Don't know Stephen Matt's is long for here but the but my point is when you're making these deals at the trade deadline, there's so much more that goes into it. Just saying boy this guy's a good pitcher. You really need to dig deep into the mentality of the guy to know if he can handle it. We've seen that before you know Roger is perfect for him and any pet it was perfect for here at Whitsun wasn't right. Woodson wasn't I understand I'm just saying I, it's so much a lot of people will call up fans will say go get this go at that guy it's not that easy. You just don't know sonny great looks like a completely different human being in Cincinnati right you know who is like the perfect person for this area and played very long time and one super bowl is manny. His personality whether you like it or not or whether you think it's awkward or whether you think it's low key however, you want to describe him. He was perfect for this area because nothing ever got to him nothing you'll. Jones has that type of personality as well? So hopefully, he he has himself Nice career here in new. York to dodgers. Swept the giants both shutouts, mariners and padres split in San Diego. But in Game One, the pod scored what a surprise seven in seven walk off Seattle that rally started with two outs and nobody on base eventually will Myers the game winning three at home? That's why you swing three. Oh. Exactly after but Tomba but they were behind right doesn't matter these. Roads with two outs and nobody on and I'm saying never over I I'm not saying this not. You're saying that when the other team was up, they should be swinging three and out right they should be tacking on. This happens once every one thousand it happens it happens it happens. All right Mr I don't I don't appreciate you know unwritten rules in respect. Hope, you're teaching I stunned by. By you're the you're the coach of run every Ballou one, hundred, hundred until the final out. It's true. One inning one pitch game at times right? Except if you're up by seven runs, then you guys can quit and we'll. Say. Quit I just said no no that is what your side. I never said the word Quinn I would not swing why not swing you're GonNa throw me a pitch right down the middle I'm not a major league baseball player some some I told you before that older traditionalist and guys that have been around the game find that to be reprehensible and insulting good now they're getting paid Right okay. Tough guy but I'm just saying. Sky Is this your teaching your kids when you're coaching your kids these are kids no. As a matter of fact, I've gotten burned by it because we've taken big leads on teams and I've told our kids to stop running and cellular stop. Stop Stop. Stop Sealing that's what I mean it also. On the basis like you wouldn't a normal situation of game. When you go up by seven or eight runs, you'd take you take the foot off the gas pedal a little bit and I've gotten burned by it. Yeah. You don't. You don't steal second when you're up by eight runs and the catcher behind home plate can't reach second base, right? Exactly. What to do? Time you don't WanNa make that kid look bad or feel bad. That's a different story cracks and that's an unwritten rule is. Anywhere, but it's not written anywhere. Literally Kid Professional Baseball I. Think I am I. Really Am stunned by your take on this why? Because Avid respect for the game I mean it's very anti. You look you've ever no no. No. Let's say let's say I'm a basketball coach guys my basketball players and we're up by twenty points. Eight seconds ago again, different scenario hoist up a three game replay. You're wrong. The game is statistically nail your s to the bench and you're not sure because the game is your history over and you're acting like a jerk and you're acting law selfish little. Bad it's a bad comparison. Not Proper, it's a three zero pitch bases are loaded. They're up seven nothing now is true because. Hold on someone sent this to me. I would like to know if this is true you tell me unwritten rules is comes from Joe Muzy Kado on twitter. Off. In nineteen, eighty, nine, boomer assize and threw four touchdown passes. As the Bengals tied a club scoring record sixty, one, seven victory over the oilers. That's true. Did you continue to play at fifty four to seven or the you breaking an unwritten rules No, I was done. But my my head coach called a timeout with about three seconds ago in the game because he wanted to put the kicker out on the field because he wanted to score sixty one points Oh my God. That's a bad one but the opposing head coach who happened to be Jerry Glanville called timeout to try to ice the kicker. Why you gotTa, do. But you have to understand the environment in which we're in between the oilers and the Bengals and Sam Wyche Jerry Glanville to appreciate what the hell happened in that game. Those two coaches hated each other. The two teams hated each other right walked up the Warren. Moon. After the game I say, Hey man. See in a couple of weeks just remind your guys that was on the field but all this crap going. Because I know who's GonNa feel the brunt of it when we see you in a couple of weeks is going to be my ass on the ground and that stupid astrodome down there in Houston and sure enough it was you through a seventy four yard touchdown pass to make it forty five nothing late third quarter. was that was. That was a hitch pass through the Gola at the line of scrimmage. Guy made five guys missing random touchdown. Maybe but it's more fun just to say a seventy four yard touchdown pass up thirty, eight nothing. It's funny. You have you WanNa talk about one of the all-time great ugly nasty rivalries I was a part of. At least three of them in that old AFC central between the browns and the Bengals, the Bengals, the steelers and the Bengals, the oilers and a lot of that was because. There was history between the franchises of shorts, especially, Cleveland and Cincinnati, but man Sam Weiss just got under everyone's skin is sold, but he just got under all the opposing coaches skins with the no huddle offense, all the gimmicks that we were doing. I. Would that we're very effective but coaches hated them. It's a matter of fact bill? Bill Cower would tell there was one the one of the coaches I forget which one it was on Pittsburgh refer to Sam as Wicky Wacky. We're running late here Chris Finish album. Sorry. Yeah. I mean there's not a whole lot more much time to tell you anything other than the NBA players did reverse course they've decided to resume the playoffs that is expected on Saturday Orlando the NHL calling off last night's game as well as tonight's game games they plan to resume tomorrow that impacted the islanders flyers game three. In Toronto and yet nine NFL teams at did not practice or scrimmage yesterday that included the jets and we will hear from some of them along with the giants later on in the show thanks Chris very much by the way Sam had Eric Wilhelm throwing touchdown passes in the fourth quarter fifty, two to seven. Yes I told yes I was announced there that is to prevent. What are you doing? What are you? Why are we doing this Because I'm the one that's going to get my ass kicked the next week That's pretty far in three weeks. When we play them next each the morning show with boomer, Esiason and Greg. boomer and Geo they suffer. Friday.

Hey come on Jeremy how you guys doing great man. On. All right. Thanks for the work done with the appreciate it one hundred percent. Few comments make. Jerry you upset me this morning when you talk to out about retraining tops, how retraining the public. SPEC law. You're not rolling or not. You're not wrong. I'm not arguing to you but I do think there could be better training in every in every walk of life whether it's a cop radio host whether it's a supermarket employees well, no but hold on because you have to tell the whole story Al was asking what, what, what's the endgame what gets improved what do we do now I think that's it I. Think it's we as we advance human beings we try to be better at what we do whether you're a cop whether you're a doctor whether you're a teacher I think we're always trying to improve is that so wrong to say that? No Jamie now, but there's more to stormy you when there's always more to the story I. Get nobody presents that unfortunately, we still want side each talked about us guys are criminals de arrest record say how the weapons And understand right on and You. Know listen all I can tell you is seven shots to the back is the issue and that's what we were talking about yesterday boomer and I spoke about this yesterday it's you know it's not just you know what's going on at that very moment. It's the entire picture I agree with you. I am not arguing you ever chased anybody would've? Come Out Really Let's. Give it thirty days. Let's do the investigation of forty I watching jump the gun. Now, my other issue is sports the this I'm pissed off at all these sports these I don't WanNa follow them anymore. You know why? Because the cockpit killed no big deal what happened tonight let me that's everybody's forgotten about that. Already you know what the mets Yankees different eleven and now over sudden this doing it's so disrespectful. It's amazing what the Society of comfortable. You know. All. Cut What is story please tell the other. Think there's two sides. There's two sides to every single story and as passionate as you are boomer will tell you how passionate guys like Shannon. Sharpe bar and He's told Bart Scott we've we've discussed this how many times? Yes. There are two sides to every story. There's a lot in between I agree with you but I agree with boomer and his friends and colleagues to. Is that wrong knows I felt we appreciate your call and I and I and I listen. And like I said this morning, there has to be a three, hundred, sixty degree conversation not just half the conversations knows the whole conversation and I often say you know if you're a cop. And you have to understand that they're human beings as well and they are trained. Some are abusive. Some aren't most most most most are really great people and they are there to serve and they do protect us in so many different ways as. Let me just finish real quick and I. my feeling is that. If, I were a cop in our in a car and I got a nine one one call and I was going to a domestic violence call a shooting, call a drug dealing call or something like that level of my anxiety is going to go through the roof not how much training that I have the same thing with somebody I would think that is going to war Afghanistan Iraq or you know, Normandy, whatever it may be you can't appreciate that unless. You live that life and you walk a mile, a man's shoes or woman shoes You know when I played football every time before the game, I would have the butterflies in my stomach and the butterflies were there because of the unknown like you just don't know are you going to get hurt today is are you had to be playing well, today is the defense going to have your game plan or you're going to have their game plan you're gonNA winter. You GonNa. Lose you'RE GONNA get beat up. There's always that uncertainty in that intensity and that anxiety that kind of goes along with the game because of the physical nature of the game. So I kinda understand that when you get a nine one one call and you are a cop and you're sitting in your car depending on where you are headed and depending on whether or not you're going after a fugitive or somebody that has a track record and you know. that. Now all of a sudden you're heightened awareness is going to be through the roof and I I I know that that is just an impossible thing for people to understand unless you've walked a mile in their shoes and that's why that NYPD baseball softball shirt is going to remain in the studios for as long as I'm here because were Never GonNa forget the guys that were executed and and it's it's bad on both sides in in certain respects but. Jerry we we sit here. We try to talk about sports, but sports is kind of. Overtaken this whole discussion, and it's one of the reasons why we spend so much time talking about it and what you just said was exactly what I was going to say this is why this conversation is so difficult for someone like myself to have I have never walked a mile of foot a step six feet and a cop shoes and I've never I don't know what it's like to be black in America I don't know how we're supposed to speak so. Eloquently from either side when I haven't been on either side, most of us haven't, and it's like we have the and this is to me this is the problem with society quite frankly we all sit here and we scream and yell about opinions have of us have opinions base would know facts. We don't know how can I yell and scream honestly about what a cop is doing or not doing when I've never been in a patrol car when I've never I told. You I have friends that are cops, the stories they tell me Oh horrifying and I don't go to work every day. I, don't I also don't want it. I also don't know what it's like to be a black person in America I have no idea and yet we sit here and we act like we do. That's the problem. It's a big problem. That's where conversation comes in the three hundred sixty degrees conversations that you're talking about that need to be had. You know because most of us don't know we act like we do and we don't and you know the the other thing too is we're living in a pandemic with left a lot of at home which led to a lot of drug use in a lot of communities, not just the black community every community suburban communities, urban communities drug use is on the rise of mental health is on the you know needs to needs to be more prevalent than ever before. We have our kids that are not going to school or home learning. They're not going to be able to play sports in certain situations. I mean the collateral damage of this pandemic in the way that decisions have been made around it have really had a profound effect on the society. It really has I believe anyway, I may be a mistake. About, something and I want to make sure that I get this. Right Hey Chris and hal what's happened? Did I say rooster barrel when I should've said barrel and rooster. Yeah but Jerry did the same thing too. So you guys are both wrong a barrel and barrel and roosters nickless's barrel and rooster you people over there middletown and down there in red bank everybody knows where what are what I'm talking about though. Right all right magazine. Hung Up. All right. Great. All right. So barrel and rooster. Yeah. As a matter of fact, I took a picture of the the menu. And Menu is unbelievable. The really one of those cool can't wait to go allie casual menus. So when you in the break I'll show you a picture I took the bar inside yeah, and how people are social distancing and being smart and being careful and being good you go. So the social distancing police can you know back could chill pill and relax it's okay to go out to dinner with your friends and socially distance enjoy a nice meal and the and the well I wouldn't say you know Ju- now is a great guy to hang out with but the editor there are still a little tough to each morning show with boomer Esiason and Greg, analogy boomer and Geo reggae. Back on Monday I. Hope he is enjoyed his week off. He's actually has some pretty good weather did. So we know that he'd take the boat there or no I. Think he did I think the boat was fixed by the folks starcraft. That's what I'm assuming I have not been touched with much like you guys are not in touch with me when all vacation and I like it that way. Yeah. He Really Dino he checks out and I think it's a good thing. I haven't seen him on social media nothing like he's been gone. So I hope you enjoyed I, mean his off man. Yeah. which is not a bad thing. Have you have you ever done that we've turned the phone off for two three days at a time or four days or at the very least logged out of social media and not even looked at it. Social Media Yes but I do a lot of reading I read constantly. So I'm always reading. You know you know news story sports stories. Whatever the whatever the issue may be, whatever may catch my fancy. So I'm always constantly reading that that I will say constantly well, yeah, and you're that IPAD which is awesome and you have a newark post on that one. Yes. So here's the deal. So hockey nothing yesterday nothing today. So the islanders and flyers tomorrow. Now for game three, they're tied one one and with the basketball they postponed. Now you said today I did not see that it was official that they're not playing today. So it looks like tomorrow that both leagues are going to start. Saturday backup Saturday. Track Day pause and I did read Doc rivers really thought that the season was the playoffs were going to be over and I guess Michael Jordan was the one. Now I know he's an owner and I get these Michael Jordan at the end of the day but it does sound like he was the one that came in and saved the rest of the post season because you had guys like Lebron James and Kawhi Leonard Interested not playing any longer and the one quote I saw was and this goes back to. Our conversation I think from Wednesday or maybe even Thursday I guess we've probably yesterday when we were talking about if Lebron ops not to play and others WanNa play what happens. There was one quote it was pretty much whatever Lebron does we're doing and so Jordan must've gotten to him and they figure things out and then they get back how how do you think things change? You know in terms of the game message? Do you think that all of these post game press conferences will be surrounded now? Oh Yeah. What's happening? I would think during the players perspective. Yes. And like I tried to tell you A. You're not going to be able to change anybody's mind they are locked in. They are they are committed they're intense about it, and it's going to be a part of it in their bill out of people that were like the message. They'll be a lot of people that you know find it to be. You know distracting that they want to love their basketball players to love their basketball and they WANNA get away from their own life and their own business and their own stress and sit down and watch these great players play their sport, and that goes for all sports and. I saw where I think it was Naomi Osaka who took herself out of the western southern and also. A number of people have taken themselves out of the US Open some cove in nineteen related others because of this particular issue and she was one of them and she was like, you know I don't want to entertain people. I'm sorry she is coming back to play though now I don't know maybe she has maybe she had second thoughts I don't know I I was going by what yesterday's report was. So maybe this is a new report as opposed to yesterday's older your report right. By the way you know the looking at the schedule beyond unders will play on Saturday afternoon game on Saturday that will be the national telecast on NBC now so I guess from that standpoint, it's good. I know I was disappointed. I was looking forward to watching a couple of games last night both baseball, and of course, the islanders in the flyers. But now we have to wait until Saturday. Let's go. Let's see. Let's see. Let's see. Let's go to I. FE- out in Monroe. See what's happening? The morning. Good. Morning what's up? Thank you. Thank you so much for taking my call a longtime listener. Thank you I I commend Gary on the statement that you made few minutes ago I I in my own ears. That was a very compassionate Talk Kelly statements. And everybody do need training Even in my own family, I was on with this incident my wife had a different take my son. Has a different take on the web black family. Know Jagmetti's what else do we need the public needs to be trained to respect enforcement. Officers to needs to be better trained to understand that insurgency tuition there must be a cool head or. The per person. So everyone does either turning i. we just sit back. Take a good look at these things and see where we can all come together on make improvement but I think you got so much. I appreciate you hearing Jerry's words clearly i. think what Jerry wants like what we all want. We want our lives and get back to normal. We want everybody to have a chance at a very good life and we want equality for everybody. You know both Jerry and I've worked very hard to get where we are today and sacrificed a lot on our way to get here and I think that's something that is great about this country. Let's go to Michael Board Michael What's happening brother. Good morning guys. Thank you for taking my call. Can I ask one question before address my point, your yeah. I heard I believe Jerry said seven shots was the issue? If it was only one shot does that change your view of the incident, but we can't go through hypotheticals it is what it is. Now I know that. So if it's seven oh one that his issue, my issue is this I keep hearing the cops need to be trained. I'm a white guy. Sixty years of age I grew up to be fearful of police never liked police I drove drunk in the seventies and eighties like we all did. Cops were nice to us but they they they they I never really liked their authority they came down on us but there was one thing we were taught as children. You never resist arrest. Cops all their training that you don't see on the video occurs before the try to de escalate the discussion with the perpetrator in this case in my opinion, and then all of a sudden. Cops go to arrest sorry Sir I have to put you under arrest and that is the red lawing that the COPS Have to have the trump card. They cannot be civil once you resist arrest their lives become endanger. Why do we need a COP? Who Live is endangered to be super civil needs more training the line you do not cross as a civilian when dealing with beliefs is to never ever ever resist arrest deal with it in court deal with post arrest deal with civil environment. But once police life is in danger we must as a civil society. Shy with the beliefs otherwise, there's GonNa be anarchy like we are seeing why is nobody addressing the notion? That resisting arrest is really really bad and you open yourself up to an ending. That is not going to be agreed to by half the population right out of the gate and Michael I want to say this to you You brought it up today we have brought up before and I brought it up for years on this radio station that society needs to be better and that we are asking our cops to do the impossible in many many situations and some situations they're not trained for in terms of de Escalation but also know from my friend Jim O'Neill, the former commissioner of the. NEW YORK? Police Department. He told me that they've worked very hard on community policing to get the cops out into the community to make a difference in other ways and they have, and if you follow them on their twitter account, you will see where cops are out in the community and all races are involved in this and I do believe that the NYPD reflects. The population that serves. As their bad here there. Yes. But like we always say far more. Better cops than there are bad cops and those cops need to be respected, and that's one of the reasons why community policing does work cops on the beat cops walk in the street cops getting involved in boys and girls clubs cops getting involved in. Whatever their interests may be and how they can impact. Positively. And inspire young children to grow up to be respectful and to be successful. So there's a lot of that is going on. It just never gets talked told about unless you follow it on twitter because nobody wants to talk about all the great things that cops do they all wanna focus on a bad thing and isn't that the basis of the news and weather it's mega. Negative and on top of all of it, you know we're in a political season. Let's face it in if anybody why right and if anybody watched you know the RNC. Convention speeches last night you saw whole thing about Nitra here, New York and how they just trashed blasios totally trashed him. The people who live there and they. They lauded president trump for supporting and highlighting what was going on and what has been going on in these housing projects. I that was stunning to me I had no idea that was coming. And it was it was very, it was very moving actually. Let's. Go to Sean. Sean what's happening? Hey guys. Thanks taking my shit. BOOMER WANNA. Thank all you do for law enforcement. Myself and I really appreciate it. You're welcome. mainly, any Brodie van wagon when I just can only happen to the method. GonNa Happen to anybody. Do, you think that the Wilpon will use this to Kinda get brody out the door being that they're good friends and Manfred or is this GonNa be forgotten about come next week I think the I, think the apologies will be accepted by all I. I know that Brody and Jeff do have a very good relationship and I'm very good working relationship. I think this was a just a real miscalculation on brody. It was two things it was miscalculation on him and it looks bad and it reflects on the mets there's no question about it but at the other on the other side of it, I also think it makes brody look good because he does understand what the players are all about. So it's A double double edged sword. So I look I personally think that whoever they decide to sell the team to is going to come in and clean. House so this is. His last is last foray into this. In my own personal opinion GM. Yes. Agent again yes, and he will seamlessly get back into that and You know that's where his future will be because it has not gone great here with the morning show with boomer Esiason and Gregg Giannotti boomer and Geo a summer Friday I've been for Geo Christopher Steele for me Chris. Good Morning Good Morning fellas powerful on field moment at city field last night at. The mets and Marlins took the field for their scheduled seven ten, start a forty, two second moment of silence, and then they left doffing their caps to each other along the way. The only thing left behind a black lives matter t shirt laid out over home plate you had jd Davis throwing his arm around Dominic Smith as the mets reached, the dugout went back into. Their clubhouse and no baseball played last night in. Queens. That was one of seven MLB Games postponed as pro athletes continue to react to the shooting of Blake in the ongoing racial unrest in our country and that was really the high point of Thursday for the Metro organization unfortunately, somewhat overshadowed by the drama that played out with Brody van wagon more from this hot Mike. Live camera stream via the mets website leaked out yesterday when there was still some question if the mets, the marlins would play Brody critical of commissioner, Rob Manfred and speaking with two other unidentified met staffers and it was his understanding. Manfred. One of the mets to delay the game by an hour comeback out and played a ten rather than postponement because of scheduling issues rush. Do fly up on the same day. Game on Sunday. Eighty flats after the game. So that's just still trying push game and at one point he said of Manfred quote he just doesn't get it. So that went viral in the hours that led up to the moment of silence the forty two second moment of silence out on the field and Brodie, eventually released an apology statement saying he got the whole thing wrong and later reiterated that with the media you know clearly I, misunderstood both the. First. Recommendation or suggestion that might we might have an alternative to what the players were going to do, and secondly, I didn't have the tone of the context to it. Players didn't WANNA play. He thought Manfred was GonNa Force where do you think he got it from boomer? You think you overheard it. 'cause you don't just make that stuff up. Yeah I don't know who he's talking to I. Don't know who called him I. Don't know if Jeff Wilpon made the suggestion and maybe he thought. Robb Manfred told Jeff Wilpon that and then Jeff told that brody when in fact Jeff came back and said it was his idea. If, you listen to the full thing. It seems pretty clear. He got it from Jeff Wilpon in their one on one conversation, and then what he's saying after the fact is that he just misinterpreted whose idea was exactly so and he played it on rob. So but then again, you fast forward. He's really saying Jeff does get it. Pretty. Much. Our last from West islip by. Mike from West is Michael Weiss I. so basically asking about now, do you think brody is going to be in trouble because Jeff and I said no, I think they got a pretty good relationship and this The in in the intensity, the anxiety and the stress levels for everybody in the players, the front office people, the owners, the commissioners of these leagues has got to be at an all time high got to be an all time you had jeff saying it was his idea via Fred Wilpon to push it back. So the whole thing really just turned is always always Fred wilpon idea well if. Right exactly well, Fred men. Fred suggested it to Jeff Jeff, brought it throughout Manfred and then brody got that whole thing wrong. Whatever store you choose to believe. It I just wanted to You blaming Fred. Personally my view of it was that. This came from Manfred and that they covered it up I don't have any all. So you're Ranford I mean, that was my that was my feel watching brody seem to really have a strong opinion when you watch the. Watch the full video of what leaked out and then as they try to piece it together. After the fact I think that was one of those behind closed doors. Hey, he's a friend of ours. So Brody's GonNa Fall on the Sword Jeff I'll say was my they didn't seem to all have their stories straight maybe maybe I'm just trying to look for controversial. I have no proof to to to suggest that's the case that was my interpretation I hate to say I was GonNa say maybe Jeff had a meeting with brody milwak- say Brody we're trying to sell the Goddamn You're right. You might be very right about that. We we need the commissioner to support whoever we're going to sell the team to. Yeah. Only the mets I hate to say that. A lot of kind of tentacles to this whole thing and you had the joint statements from Fred and Jeff Rippin brody late last night he spelled his name correctly and incorrectly and So just the latest eyesore for their organization. Meanwhile, they even had the best tweet he said is Brody van wagon in a better GM Brodie van wagon and his name is different. Than was great. Yes. Positive vibe stemming from Dominic Smits, emotional comments, Wednesday night got a lot of great feedback and support from teammates, peers and others in professional sports still overwhelming. Moment physicist move you know my peers are my teammates, my brothers, the Front Office, the coaching staff, and you heard that from brody earlier in the day when he joined Joe and Evan here on the fan what's going on is is upsetting what I saw from Dom Smith yesterday upsets me that he's feeling that pain that no black people across the country are feeling the pain and it out. It's outrageous. It really is all part of the reaction. We're. Seeing across pro sports and in this country right now back to baseball, mets need to start winning trade deadline right around the corner was near the halfway point of this sixty game season and brody says, they won't be afraid to make a big move if necessary our planets to contend every year and we'll have to consider moving prospects at the right time. For the right deals we won't We won't let past decisions impact what we think a right decision. It's amazing. I. Mean You had that you had the video leak you had his statement you had his zoom press conference I mean he he was very yesterday. He was out there you give him credit. He didn't rip on guys from hiding things he was front and center that was the one Chris I. said he came out last night and he took full responsibility whether it was him fall on the sword whether it was Manford idea whether it will whoever it was he hundred per se and blame the fact that the that the press conference room was live he said my bed he just took accountability yes, he Did. Now, we look ahead to this five game subway series expecting Jordan Montgomery Michael Walk. For Game One at Yankee Stadium this afternoon we'll have coverage beginning at three twenty five here on the fan bowl teams TVD for the nightcap Aaron Boone to tell Joe and Evan. They'll likely have a bullpen game. Then again, we'll see what the Yankees decide to do after they played the double header Wednesday off yesterday. Here's Boone on the road ahead for them here we have not really talked certainly as a team about the things going on the last couple of days thinks they'll play, but he says they'll talk about it as. A team logistics kind of prevented them from doing that. Again, he said it's possible Aaron Judge Lands on the AL with his calf tightness that popped up again on Wednesday. But as for the other injured guys, they seem to be doing quite well either situations that we feel like are going to be more short term in nature and that we feel like the bulk of these guys are going to be coming back to us in the coming days and weeks Dj Lemay, you could return as early as tomorrow. He Giancarlo Stanton took live BP at the stadium yesterday glacier tours was there running as well and Boone? said, he was looking good little further away than Lemay Hugh. They still have a couple of pitchers on the I L. I meant to share this yesterday. Yes. Network ran a graphic the other night I think after the double header Wednesday, the pitcher injury numbers. So they had the I l. stints through the first thirty one days of the season just to compare the last couple years to this shortened season. So two thousand, eighteen, you had forty-three guys last year you had fifty one again through the first thirty one days at the season. Keep in mind normally it's colder weather in eight right this year ninety eight. Wow. And that's excluding any covert nineteen related stuff So just goes to show that short in summer camp seems to be having an impact on these pitchers remaining healthy you had the seven other games postponed as protests, including the mets and the marlins. Basically all teams who weren't involved double header yesterday did not play hit a couple of sweeps pirates over the cardinals red swept the braves dodgers swept the giants, both of those shutouts for La as they improved to twenty four and nine mariners and padres split in San Diego. But in Game One, the pod scored seven in the seven to walk off Seattle. Meyer saw. The. Simply. padres been good. Did you notice how fast the ball hit the bat that he called it a home run? Yeah. Heard Reaction You. Myers knew it was gone. It was like instant. Fun To Watch, I will say that they are. With two outs and nobody on base. Can they overcome the dodgers who are clearly the best team in the Bay in Baseball? I don't know the I don't know if and when they'd see them in the playoffs. So I just wonder I got all this young town obviously many Machado's out there and everything else. I. Just not are they seasoned enough maybe in this crazy season of only sixty games, they will be I mean but they're having fun. They're hitting home runs. There are obviously swinging at three zero pitches when the bases loaded into seventh-inning saw. Nothing. Love it. That's always the key when it comes to the posts you're right but they are funding. There's no question that they've rebuilt the team. Right? They just got to hope to have enough pitching. That's right. Three homers yesterday to in Game One and did you see the ball Totti's junior hit? Yes. A bomb on the roof of that building they've got down the left field line, his thirteen we saw that building I love that ball I love that play. That's one of my favorites. If not my favorite that what a great place to watch a game really is for the outfield. Lines to the buildings they didn't knock down that they kept up as they rebuilt around it really tell you you look at their starting pitching not exactly household name. That's. Really, it I I don't know the Goering everybody they're just bombing everybody they are because. When I look at who they have. I. Mean. This would be the problem boomer in terms of overtaking the dodgers because Denilson Lament is there acc he's he's fine after that Chris Paddock Zach. Davies remember him when he was all the rage early last year with the with the game he pitched against the mets, right? Now that you bring that up. Yes, I do. Think about them. Again, if you look at their scores and you look at their highlights, it's a lot of home runs a lot of runs and I mean, right. But what happens? I know I know that's why that's why problem can they can they overtake the dodgers in the in the West I don't think they can. But I'll tell you one thing like I feel like they're a team that is on the cusp. Yes. There on the cups are they're almost there but they don't have the experience. They may be missing a piece here to there in the maybe in the bullpen but in the lineup with those guys, it reminds. Kind like with the braves are right now. Young Grass of. Talent that is just hitting bombs all over the place not a lot of outs in that lineup no. Yes. NBA Players are deciding to resume the playoffs that's expected Saturday Lebron, I guess slept on, it changed his mind on boycotting the season and Michael Jordan very much involved on both sides as he spoke with the NBA Players Union before going into that meeting with the NBA Board of Governors yesterday. So he's kind of been the middleman between the players and the owners they get all that worked out NHL called off. It's. And tonight as well. They planned to resume tomorrow when the islanders and flyers will resume their season and this was really player driven. I know some of the black players in the League not happy with the League's response or lack thereof, and they spoke on that yesterday former ranger. Kevin Shattenkirk was the one to reach out to some of the black players yesterday morning got the conversation started before they got the league to call off the Games shattenkirk says they've got their backs. You know obviously in a predominantly white sport they've they feel alienated but. They have the support of every single one of us. So the players kind of spearheading this whole movement here are more so than the league. But the league supporting their decision and they will resume tomorrow nine NFL teams did not practice or scrimmage yesterday. The jets were on that list we heard from Bradley McDougal back on. Wednesday said, the players have had enough of what's going on whatever solution proposed to come up with as a community you know these athletes would these platforms but. Getting sick missing tired dancing and he made the point that he is t and his teammates once they leave work could have very well been in a situation like Jacob Blake I'm African American. Man. Easily consumed as I walk out of one draw I'm just another bladder. I don't know how a COP hydrates tattoos bigger than average male, but I love how the COP is. GonNa be me so I guess it all depends on if somebody calls nine one one on him. I, suppose right I mean. Again, the facts are the facts somebody called nine, one one and we was Jacob Lakes girlfriend called nine one one on him and that's why the cops were there in the first place right and I was in just it's again it's a very sensitive topic but it's a topic that needs to be discussed within all communities. It's all communities you know it's And I just think that it's You if you're going to have the conversation and they're going to be tough, there's no question about it that you have to wonder why the cops are there in the first place. Who called them? Why did they call them? In. What led up to this whole thing Yup and then why was it? Not de-escalated why did it get escalated and I'll come back to what I've said to why is that part of the story never told? It no, it hasn't been told I I think I think in a lot of these cases it has been told I even remember. George Floyd. And what happened there we're all disgusted by with by what we saw the eight minutes and forty six seconds will never forget that that video is really really tough to watch and I can understand that if I were a black man in this country and I saw that how it would affect me because I I've told you I've heard the stories a thousand times and I've listened intently to those stories and I'm sensitive to those story so I can understand the anger, but I also WanNa know why things like this get started in the first place Have some more football info for you. Next Hour. quickly, the jets did trade for another running back yesterday by the way conditioning seventh round pick to the dolphins for their waved running back Kaelin. Balaj. That's another Adam Gates connection from his dolphins David Levy on bell had a sore groin. Kidding so you're okay. Running back depth chart quite a bit. We'll see what happens with bell here moving forward. All Right Chris Great job each morning show with boomer Esiason, Gregg Giannotti, boomer NGO once again I am stirring a steel wall with boomer on the other side of it, but it's got a nice I can say hello to in between breaks and go in and say, Hey, to fliegelman and I can stare at Lopresti texting on his phone and and Al doing what he does as well. Hi Chris. How are you? Are. We allowed to talk about the mets Yankees a little bit of that's something you'd rather hold off for I. Know I like to do the calls in the last segment and we could always get to more if you'd like but we do have a relatively important subway series in terms of baseball starting today with two games for two teams that desperately need wins and only one of them is going to come out. With more than the other and for the team that winds up losing, dare I say three four or five of these games? I'm not. GonNa say they're going to be in trouble because the Yankees will find their way into the playoffs no matter what I really believe that I. Think they're that good there that depot sixty spot. Now, what's the sixteen eleven but they are dropping like a hot rock there two and a half. Now. I wouldn't call them dropping like a hot rock. Dropping. They're not dropping five in a row that's dropping. Then no dropping like a hot rock would be eleven sixteen having lost seven in a row. They're not. They're fine and I think they will be fine. The concern I do have though are for the mets because if they have a bad series here, you've got turmoil with the GM and the owners you've got a new owner likely coming in soon final bids are due on. I guess it would be Monday This is this to me is a maker break series for them and what's probably even more concerning I. Know It was address and understand why is the fact and we talked about it that Jacob Degrom doesn't pitch in any of these five games not two, not three five of them because of the way the covert rules broke down and shook out and you're looking at a series where I don't know who the hell pitching for that I really don't like I. I've by the way the same thing for coal to by the way. That's fair. You're absolutely right and you know right you in the series either. I would've have loved to see a match up with those guys that would've been a great. Yeah. You know wouldn't that have been great like the second half of one of these doubleheaders. Also. happened. To Go toe-to-toe seven inning game. No doubt and you would have expected both of them to go seven innings actually start and finish the game which would have been real. Cool. But that's not the world we're living in right now and that's not going to. Throw then one of them would have lost the game because you know the other team would have started with on second base. Very and extra any setting, right? Yeah. No, you're right. I mean I don't know. I. Just. I just look at this series and I don't necessarily believe. I'm not one of those things stuff off the field carries onto the field and I would hope in the midst case it doesn't for what happened yesterday. But for them you know for the Yankees again, I think they'll be fine. I can't get swept this weekend in five games or will they. But I think for the mets they need to get out to a decent start tonight you know. They they've got two games here and anything less than a splits a big problem because I could see it's spiraling out of control very quickly for them, and then you're looking at, you know and mother we and we'll be looking at a September of nothing. Now, you'll still play for something because eight teams from each league will make the playoffs. But at that point, we're really are you you know Rick Portillo has been bad Michael. Walker has barely pitched Noah syndergaard's gone marcus stroman left Yohan assessment is packed up and left what it's just a straight. To me was amazing for the mets. They obviously had the interruption due to nineteen right after their August nineteenth. Win Against Miami didn't come back again until Miami. On August twenty fifth of this week lost two in a row. They got shut out in that double header they come back and win, and now they get interrupted because of the social justice issues and the question that I would have given the fact that. How Emotional Dominic Smith was two days ago and how emotional he was yesterday. Just. From a pure team, wide spirit kind of feeling is this going to bring this team together regardless of what the GM and the owner and what ownership is doing does this bring this team together in some way shape or form and I, hope it does. For their sake. And I hope it it does have a profound affect on them on the field and hopefully they become closer together. Hopefully, they've learned a little bit more about each other but `Damas already popular in that locker room anyway. but I think maybe even more. So now as the team is rallying around him as he seems to be the the the loan black player that is. Kind of. The example that is being set so You know I I would just say that maybe this is. Maybe this'll be an interesting good thing for the mets on the field, and on that note I hope it kid like Dominic Smith goes on a tear because the one thing that stood out a lot stood out but in terms of baseball, the one thing that stood out when he was speaking the other night was how the game is safe haven and when he's on the field blocks everything else out and he feels very comfortable and he's on the field and he's doing what he needs to do and no better time right now for him to go out and just tear it up and he certainly has the the capability to do that and that could help this. Team. Get on a run because as we talk about, they need it in some way shape or form. You know if you look at a lot of teams in baseball and I know there are teams that are having you know really good starts to the season or good first halves. We've mentioned the dodgers and padres the white sox have been outstanding. So you know the mets were one of few teams I think that really are yet to put together any sort of winning streak and I don't mean three cabinet is three games there. Hi, mark for the year probably is you know I mean this is a team that's looking from talking about ten eleven games in row aerobic. Together five in a row, seven of Eight, eight of nine feet actually start to believe in them. The Yankees have done it already when the Yankees are capable of and the Yankees will do it again, we haven't seen the mets do that yet this year and part of that's been the pitching I mean, just the other night with Priscilla you see puts them in a hole in the second inning before you can even breathe they need to do then prove that they can I'm not sure that they're capable of it right now. Not. What I WANNA, say I wanNA see an eight and to run over ten game span exactly my point right and you know the other thing too is that the Yankees are not coming to town or in town with Judge Stanton Torres I mean if there's ever a time to beat the Yankees now is the time do so especially when you're not going to be facing call the rest of their pitchers haven't been great they've been okay. I would also say that you want to do exactly what Atlanta just did and you just want to jump all over them early in these games so. Atlanta pitched really well though I know they did. I know. The end the Yankees lineup is not what the Yankees lineup was week one very true although the mayhew likely back this weekend which does help them. You're right. It's a different team, but here's the thing about that too. You know we've lauded them for a year and a half about next man up next man up everybody produces I'm not going to sit here and all of a sudden say, well, you know. They don't have their big guns. I mean they have been damn good for a really long time and whether it's Ford whether it's Tuchman whoever it spin these guys have come up and produced, and if you shut down this lineup, what you deserve, it earned it because there's nothing easy about this line of even with the big guys out because the secondary guys like I mean look voids turned into a household. Name we didn't who was eighteen months ago and think I'm right or wrong though I mean he's been that good. He's still a homerun threat every time he steps the plate Aaron Hicks is still a damn good player. Brett Gardner aging still a good player. You know this team is not a and they get back to me it means something. So and Gary Sanchez is still Gary Sanchez. The problem is you Don't know which Gary Sanchez you're getting from pitch to pitch. Let alone game to game. You know you know what's interesting is the financial aspect of sports right now and what does the future hold and if you're a player and you're looking for a contract extension and your name's not Patrick Mahomes or does Shawn Watson or Dak, Prescott, you know what? What money is available, how much money is going to be available I think that's probably part of the discussion that was had with the NBA players about trying to finish the season and crown a champion and and use that platform for whatever voice you want to know put out there and I just I because there are no fans and because we are going to have the start of next year season at the end of this year literally three months from now hopefully hopefully, i Mike I don I know the NHL has extended its CBA and that. means that the salary cap is flat for the next four years eighty one point, five, million dollars. So that means like if you are a free agent to be or somebody looking for a major contract extension, you know teams are GonNa have to be really smart about how they are paying people. The same thing can be said for a guy like him hayward in Pittsburgh, one of the best defensive Lineman in the NFL and he'd love to have a contract extension and he wants one right now and they're out there talking in in. Pittsburgh. As if like wait a minute, we don't really know what the financial future is given. The fact that we can't have any fans at these games. We still have so many questions that need to be answered in so many ways. On top of the mets possibly. Well possibly, but being sold in the midst of being sold and how much money they are going to go on her at the worst time the probably sell the franchise and the you remember if we go back about which I would say a couple of months ago. This was the conversation I was having to when earlier in the year the mets are being valued at a specific number and you know people would fans would say, well, there were this they should be spending that and my point was yeah. But circumstances change maybe the team's not worth what it was and we're seeing that right in front. Of, our eyes at one point we were looking at a number for the mets I wanNA say two point, six, two, point, seven, billion dollars I think for an now for eighty percent of it right? Right for eighty percent of the team whereas now from what I'm reading, it looks like two billion dollars now I, understand we're talking about rich people getting richer. That's a difference of six, hundred, million dollars though that is vanished from what they thought. They might get just a few months ago because of whatever the circumstances are. No fans TV contracts limited schedule whatever things change in a matter of eight nine. Weeks to half a billion dollars like the mets need to do is they need to get Jeff bezos involved in this process. I agree and then by that whole thing over there, and then he could put all his Amazon stuff over there and everything else and you re warehouse chop shops and all the the the the the manufacturer, and that the manufacturing the distribution centers and all that and you. But if I want to drive for Amazon, I don't driving out there. Yeah. I think all the merchandise listen Amazon. Invested. You know couple of hundred million in long. Island so I did see that. I'm all for it but I'm just like what get basis in Bob he could buy the entire League for God's sake. Yes he could. His worth is ridiculous and so as the net worth of a lot of these guys that are going to bid on the southern California is home to millions of drivers.

All right. Well, with that having been said, hopefully, there's no pain during Chris's update here if there is feel free to chime in Allison Sound Effects Chris Lopresti. Guide let's hear some more rony then wagging. Live cameras situation. They probably could of used Al's noises during that yesterday to block out some pretty was saying. So it accidentally streams on the mets website or not accidentally depending on what and who you choose to believe. We Know Brody was critical of Rob Manfred suggesting he was trying to force the mets and Marlins to play last night at city field but an hour later than originally scheduled, there were ongoing discussions between Manfred and Jeff Wilpon throughout the day was brody sticking up for his boss. He's Jealous players form of, but also tower is operatives. He has to be a messenger for to be thrown at us and I told Jeff. Are playing. Implicit Kevin. S. Talking to unify. Noah Chris I agree with you. I agree with you I. Think this probably did come from the Commissioner's office because they're concerned about getting the Games in and I think they took a bullet for him I do trying to clean it up. Are they that's possible Yup after that goes viral brody releases an apology statement. He says he misunderstood the whole situation who suggested what called his criticism unfounded later addresses with the Median zoom call. Now I recognize that there was brainstorming about suggestions and that it wasn't rob- of in his leadership that was that was requiring or or mandating anything by any stretch of the imagination Manfred released his own statement basically reiterating that exact point, Jeff and Fred Wilpon later released joint statements very critical of brody but apparently couldn't decide how they want to spell his name statements. Anyway the whole thing was a mess in between. All that you did have the poignant moment at city field is the mets and Marlins did take the field at seven ten. The national anthem was played that a forty two second moment of silence than they left the field leaving behind a black lives matter t shirt draped over home plate that quite a scene, a lot of reaction and support for Dominic, Smith after his emotional press conference Wednesday night Louis Rojo's humbled a first impression. was was just how proud I was that he came out and shared these emotions in charities, opinion things and he's taught and and he gave me some perspective support from his teammates as well. You had Smith Michael Conforto, Dylan, Betances, and Robertson can altogether with the media last night Conforto, the team's player. Rep speaking up here it really touched all of us in the clubhouse just to see how how powerful his statements were. Was dom his brother. So you know we stand behind him all those affected by this ongoing situation now, as far as the baseball goes mets and Yankees about kickoff this five game subway series bowl teams face pitching questions as far as getting through these games right now, we know the mets have moved Seth Lugo into their rotation further handicapping their bullpen. We did see that right away the other night against Miami not to fear though Brody says the real Edwin Diaz is back in Oh boy it's been a different guy this year we've seen. A lot more of the. That we traded for and he's been high impact guy and I think that he's going to be leaned onto that going forward. Is He serious? Like was that a real clip? Yes, it was. Yes. I. Was with Joe and Evan yesterday, how did they respond to that? That I'd have to go back to the raw because, of course that was not in the the sound bite that I have access to in our system. Jerry. But saying he's been horrendous his not been the same guy that was in Seattle. Now he's been he's he's been more impactful as far as getting swings and misses I think with stuff and has not getting out, right? Yes. We hasn't given up as many homers. That's the positive thing. But yeah, he's not closing games because he blew games in the early part of the season he was born in Germany because he was the top closer in the American league he blew all those games last year he blew the second game this year and right after that game they basically took him out of the high leverage situations. Now, there have been some times where he said the come in and get those kiosks and he's been able to do that but he is not doing what they brought him here for no not. Is Better but is better this year than he was Lascher He was atrocious, right? Yeah. But being better than last year, not that difficult to do and it's Set very low right exactly. But I'm just saying I understand why he said what he said it again, the the point being like apron you brought him here to be your closer. Yeah, and he is not your closer after the second game of the season you decided he is not your closer boomer I'm honestly stunt he said that I really am not anybody we may say anyone with two is can see that that's not true. Just added to the list for Brody yesterday there was a lot going on hopefully has left leg cramping has subsided and he'll be available for. For today's Douglas Deadwood do it Oh Bj does go get fluids just leave right Maybe. The Rub a little blue EMU on their. He'll be just fine right now. I. Look for Jordan Montgomery. Michael Walker the expected starter shame stadium today we'll have coverage three, twenty, five both teams tvd what a surprise for the nightcap that's the new thing everyone it is funny though you're right though it's funny when you go to Elmo Dot Com and you look at the schedule for the day and you see either I think ESPN puts the TB? The MLB. Reversed one of them just leave it blank. I do Kinda feel bad for baseball though overall in general. Because covid nineteen outbreaks. All right. Let's start at the beginning. So you need the way, the season I mean they go they go they. Let's start being they go to training camp. Everybody's all pumped up everything's, and then all of a sudden it shuts down and then it's the screaming in the Allen of WHO's getting paid, who's not screaming and yelling, get what what was the agreement initially what can the Commissioner do? What does the you know the Players Association GonNa Fight for. Justice given up twenty, three million because of fighting with the boar, some other crap, and then he quits on the team. then. You got another Kobe nineteen outbreak with the cardinals and then the. I Miami then is the cardinals and then all of a sudden the mets are impacted by Vilis Games always didn't play Games Yankees didn't play games. You got the social justice issues going on. Now I mean come on and they've been dealing with a million things here and they have a bubble but let me also pat them on the back to a little bit because I think this so far could have been worse covert wise I think they have handled it well, actually, we knew that there were going to. Be. In. There'd be an outbreak here or there and the fact that they haven't shut it down they have rescheduled games and they are on track to keep playing is a good thing. So you're right has not been perfect in far from it as you just pointed out seventeen different things but I will look at it as Mr positively that's right that I think it's Actually. Gone off. All right. But this is what leads to TB pitching Mattis note and injuries no question about it and having what is it nine games in six days? No one's got enough starting pitching for that. You're absolutely right. Well, let's hope they get all five in beginning with two today and Aaron Boone with some good news injury. Wise not so much on. Aaron judge could be headed back to the calf tightness but DJ. Lemay, getting close to two closer to return from his sprained thumb sounds like it could be as early as tomorrow he and Giancarlo Stanton live EP at the stadium yesterday Stanton coming back I don't know I just he was taken swings yesterday. So I guess that's a good sign, right? Yes, he did not. Give a date the way he did with Lemay here with Joanna and he was very, he said it could be early as tomorrow for the mayhew. He just mentioned stanton took there wasn't really a date attached to that. Basically all teams who aren't involved a double double header yesterday did not play at seven games in total called off. Among the Games that were played the double dip between the Mariners and the padres. We've a highlighted that this morning San Diego taking game one with seven runs in the seventh to stunned Seattle ten to seven, and then rally started with two outs and no one on. We'll Myers the game winning three run homer for the pods. But in game two, Seattle returned the favor the stretch. Now, the pitch on the way swinging a fly ball deep into the gap and right, Center Field Myers on the run and this one is gone goodbye baseball Jose Marmalade with his second home run of the afternoon. What a great Grand Slam grandma get out the Rye bread and mustard in his grand salami time. With marmalade now. Does that would probably been the. Marmolejo never heard of him but hit a grand slam for Seattle yet to homers in the two games that was Rick. Ribs on Mariners Radio Mariners took the nightcap eight to three big day for Manny. Machado he had three homers across the two games for the PADRES. NBA players have decided to resume the playoffs that the expected to resume the schedule Tomorrow Lebron James I guess changing his mind overnight about boycotting the season Michael Jordan kind of the middleman between the players and the owners as they both met separately yesterday as they continue to iron out those issues I. Know. Chris Paul very involved the players union president. He spoke with Michael Jordan Russell Westbrook as well about the issues of social justice that done initially left some stars thinking that they should call off the whole season. Jerry. Mentioned Doc rivers saying he's clippers players basically thought they were done and now they reversed course and they will resume likely tomorrow. The NHL will be back on the ice tomorrow as well. Called off Thursday's games. No Games tonight either. So you have the islanders in the flyers play game three of their series up really stand alone day for the baseball then. Yeah they're just like last night I guess, right right. So a lot of baseball we're not a lot of baseball but some baseball whereas we're not really having anything else a lot of NFL teams not working yesterday either the jets on a list of nine teams that cough practice or scrimmage they had discussions early in the morning player driven. But Adam Gates Joe Douglas Christopher. Johnston all involved. They also made a minor trade as the dolphins wave running back Kaelin Balaj the jets traded conditional seventh round to add him to their stable of backs. Another Guy Adam gave has a connection to from his dolphins stays the giants did work yesterday morning they continue internal conversations about the ongoing racial unrest across the country, Saquon Barkley, and Sterling Shepard. Say They haven't ruled out some sort of boycott at some point saquon feeling the effects of the Jacob Blake shooting in a black man. Just how I know my parents raised me. When you see those situations happening continue happened. Said words worse for sprout, and then here he is on their in house discussions. grew today was off the team on you know try to figure out the things you can do. Try to help some now, I believe that I believe that was also an answer to the direct question. Would you guys sit out a game if I'm not mistaken? I, don't know. What the way the stories been written. I'm not so sure that they were thinking about sitting out a game as opposed to answering the question maybe they will. I know you know it's interesting. Yesterday we were using the word boycott. Yeah. You're using the word postponement. Yeah Then we're using protest and now. There are people that are describing this as a strike. Words I. I think it's think the players initiated this of the Milwaukee brewers. And much like we're the bugbear I mean, yeah. The more you box much like Rudy Gobert coming down with covid nineteen, the NBA initiated the shutdown. And now I think the the bucks initiated the. If you WANNA call pause now I guess it's a pause today pause it seems like at least for the NBA in the NHL. But I was thinking about this and I was thinking about high school sports in a second because we we never talk about it or when we do, we just touch on some of our our memories and things of that nature. But I was GONNA ask Jerry Your Boys are how old? Soon to be sixteen and ten. So sixteen sophomore in high school, right? Yes. Correct and does he play a fall sport? He doesn't winter and Spring Basketball Baseball and winter and spring and his spring sport was basically uprooted last year, right? Yes. This year I should say earlier this year Yup they got the basketball season and then everything shut down right when they were starting baseball. All right. So let's say you're a senior and you lost out on your spring. Season last year, and then you just one often graduated. Let's say you're a sophomore and your junior and let's say you were a baseball player or a Lacrosse player that played in the spring, and then you were coming back in the fall and you were either GonNa, play football or soccer or whatever other false sport did you WanNa play right now you live in Nassau County, New York they have canceled that on you as well. They have a basically cancelled your spring season, and now they're canceling your fall season. With no promise that you're playing a winter season. Right exactly I mean. It'd be a full calendar year of of. Sports that do not get played and I I do think they'll play in the spring. It's also it's also boomer why I've said many times when people have told me why can't happen? It's also why I believe they should have come back with Spring. Sports in the fall flip them because you you could have gotten. Spring Sports in. Absolutely and that's a season that got nixed in the spring. You come back with it in the fall you hope the winter sports can be played and then you play the fall sports in the spring. Now, how you dial that back I don't know I mean that would take steps and time. But at least you get things in motion again and you get kids outside and working and playing well, a lot of the fall sports football being the big one obviously is outside soccer's well, soccer's outside is well yes. Contact the issue with the football I just I just think you have you have administrators that are just making decisions and I understand that they fall back on the virtue of where we have to protect our children and you know protecting our children and allowing our children to grow Is just as important. Agreed. But whether it's it's administrators or politicians or whoever's making these rules and the problem is there's there's no consistency to them anywhere and we re one thing one day and then three days. Later we read something else going on now for six months ago and the argument for the Nassau County Group of administrators that Nassau County had the second highest rate of Covid, nineteen outside of New, York City and obviously we border New York City right and I'm just like these administrators are just making these decisions and I don't know necessarily if they're totally transparent, they just keep falling back. We have to protect every. We have to protect everybody what's Nice but you know you're also crate creating. This mental anguish that these kids have got the deal with. Yeah. Some handle it better than others and they're more equipped to handle it now that maybe twenty years ago your Dad Your Dad. Your new I've talked about this. Do you want your kids in school they're going to school they're going to school yes. Has Your School System decided? Are they a hybrid or are they all in? Saint Jovian Holmdale is going to be a hybrid three and two out basically right and then the school, my son, my my younger son goes to, which is a private school in new. Jersey is going to be you have to be all in or all out. And so he's going and that's what a K. through eight. Yes, K. through eight a little bit easier K. through six really easy because they usually stay with the one teacher I. Believe. So it's a little bit easier to handle that and I think most schools are probably doing that with the younger kids. Yeah. What they're doing is they're keeping them in the classroom and the different teachers that they would normally see we'll come to the classroom and They've got all sorts of safety measures they put into place and they cut down the amount of kids in the classroom. So very comfortable with it. Let's say your son wanted to be the quarterback of his high school and they were not allowed to play in this in in the fall. How would you feel as a parent? Would you want full transparency on why the decision was made? The big ten parents want to know and the big players want to know where did you come up with the decision? You'd like this. Yeah. Of course, you want answers alowing, would you be willing to sign a waiver saying that you know listen you're not holding the school responsible if your son does come down with covid nineteen I can tell you this. The Travel Baseball League we plan. That is what we've done already you have to and I think that'll be the case anywhere you play high school. Sports. College Sports I. Think that is being done. It is at the youth sports level I can tell you that so everybody had a sign a waiver. Yeah. Yeah. Always. You can't play right coaches as well. Yeah. I had to sign a waiver to right when you coach do you wear a mask when you coach I do yes I do I do not see all coaches wearing masks. I'M NOT GONNA lie to you just like I do not see all parents wearing masks out in the stands. But to me, my personal responsibility is to have the mask on when I'm anywhere near the kids. Have you spoken to other coaches? Have they lost any kids dacoven nineteen? Well, say lost I mean kids that have been sick and had been off the field because there have been there have been fewer teams but there's still a lot that are still playing and yeah that. That has been the case. There's there's no question even with my own team. Now, we all opted to play but there were definitely decisions that had to be made some weren't very comfortable and decided ultimately to go forward with it but yeah, that's happening everywhere. Of course there's I'm trying to think of the college coach I'll come up with it after the break but. There there's a college coach, Les Miles Actually. There was less miles at Kansas who basically had one of his players opt out of you know playing because of covid nineteen reasons and in less miles mind he felt like his player was putting himself in greater danger taking himself off of the team and going through the routine of being on the football program right and then of course, that player entered the transport so. Because probably GONNA play. Anyway we're really late. Let's get Chris. Thanks very much. We're rest of it from your next hour each morning show with boomer Esiason, and Greg. boomer and Geo op before I know we'll take a couple more calls here. But before we do that, just a couple of things to touch on. Number One boomers sent me the menu for barrel and Roost and al I will just tell you this. It's almost as if and boomer can tell me if I'm right or wrong it's almost as if this this, this product was put on the menu specifically for you I swear to God. Roasted organic chicken with carrots and mushrooms. Perfect perfect for you. So you're good to go. So a Maniac Doug Wells had. Dinner last night did really yeah. It was great. It's just like the best chicken ever had art. So it's going to be great. I got you guys hooked up you're going to be all taken care of so don't worry about it i. I gotTA figure out when but Yes yes. Yeah. It's he's got a perfectly setup. It's safe. It's He's got windows on both sides of the restaurant that are totally wide open was nice and breezy in their last night. It was great and everybody social distancing. I can't even say that enough about the experience. So you will love the restaurant Nicholas does a great job and he'll take really good care you guys. All right. So we will work on a day soon they're specially you're off next week so. Maybe next week we'll say and the other one is going to have to ask because we have the zoom call and I'm watching and I can see boomer and I can see al and I can see Chris in his in his palatial estate living room there do you pay a cable bill or your Internet Bill you've been flashing nonstop yes. It has nothing to do with my internet or my cable it's the loose USB connection on my laptop that's what it is. Probably about I don't know eight years old at this point and had fair share of wear and tear took it back and forth to me with me to Florin Park when I covered the jets. So it's gotten banged around a little bit over the years. So I guess the USB connections is a little a little finicky fair enough. Again. Let's see. We have a better connection for next year is. Here's how you know the Internet, is on point yacht once since I've been filling in here with my comrex unit has my line dropped off and that's that's the Internet that's a very good point and we've all had that pretty much experienced. Would I'm sure it'll happen now between. Now and the end of the show I'm going to drop off. Now the only problem we had is when the landscapers the house caught his court that was funny. Yeah that. Would, present problem. That was panic. Yes, that was little rough. So anyway, you WANNA take a couple of calls here before we get back to. Chris after the break aride if you want to we can. Let's go. Peterborough new. Jersey. You're on with boomer in Jerry on the fan what's happened and Scott. Hey, guys thanks for the platform today.

WanNa make it will show but I understand I understand. I know I listened and I appreciate it, and that's why I gave you the platform allowed you to give your opinion I'm not gonNA argue with it. I'm not going to change your mind and by the way a chief doorns wife last night on the RNC her. Amazing speech I don't care whether you're a Democrat Republican right left independent like I am libertarian. It doesn't matter. You listen to that woman speak last night she showed an unbelievable amount of bravery and just poise. Talking about her husband who was shot in the middle of these riots, deb Rochester Deb, what's happening? Hey Good morning guys Okay. So I agree with boomer but said earlier we live in separate bubbles and we have no idea well large chunks of each other live. Each other's lives are like like black people, right? Okay. So but you know living while black is real. Okay and you could be doing everything right and you could still be pulled over. You could still be questioned and and you could still see and then you're still and you're respectful and you still catch hell brutality. Okay and and that said Black and white people resist cops okay and that's a problem for. Now and also black folks they go into the forest to improve public safety for their community and everyone, and yet the system changes them. They don't change assist them. They've become sucked up into it and then you know. But that, and you know that said, sorry Luma Place that said there's a black correctional officer who is also a magazine publisher investor and recently he's held rallies for a law enforcement that. Are Pro black lives, and recently how the rally, for black lives lost to black lives and the message was we can do better to each other and four each other. But you know, let's face it one hundred, hundred zero years of trauma little money and persistent discrimination in. So many corners of life you know there's a lot to overcome for for people in inner cities and I would say white I'm black but especially. As White Black Brown yellow it's everybody. But in this case, it happens to be attached. To the black race and for good reason. So we you know look I'm trying to give everybody an opportunity to say what they wanna say and I think we've pretty much covered the entire gamut. Though I think. So the last three and a half hours think we've been all over the map you're. On top of that, I have out grunting DORMI, my blue EMU, commercial reed, which is tremendous. By the way you have another one coming up any chance I don't but the ones that were running our can so they're coming from somebody else. I. Yes, I did. That's the idea came from from me. Al Does these just give me one quick one here at the. Crack of the Bat, the home run in the crowd. You got confused there you did. Here's the pitch. This is what I'm saying I. Hear this on the PODCAST. So I hear the commercial boomer and I had the idea to recreate. Did A beautiful ride. So fliegelman Mossend, the commercial read witthaus noises to Zach we will ask the client if the noises along with my reed work and if it does, then we'll hear owls grunting and groaning on wfan probably for the next three months and if you do, I'll just say you're welcome. The morning show with boomer Esiason and Greg. boomer and Geo. Finishing up his last advocation. He'll be back on Monday morning CEELO and a second jerry our been talking about Cam Newton for the week and you know he's telling you I don't think he's going to be the starter even though he's getting a lot of the reps up there for the New England patriots able. We had nine practices on the field thing about that. Okay and they asked him whether or not. He felt like the starter up there in in New England and here are his words absolutely not every. Day as a working day for me, the label is not an important to me right now I have so much I need to get better at so much I need to learn so much I need to be more comfortable with throughout this process. That's the last thing. I'm pretty much worried about and then he goes on to say that the are goes on to say that the Patriots concluded that ninth practice at Training Camp Wednesday and Newton led the two minute offense and it struggled for the second day in the row in the Newton. He sees the command of fellow quarterback Brian. Hoyer in jared stood him in those situations and he needs to measure up so about that. Yes. So he's basically confirming what I've been saying that it's just in time it's going to take a lot especially in a detailed offense. As, the Patriots are that's the thing that's one of the reasons why Brady was so good at it and you know we're gonNA find out how good he'll be in Bruce Arians offense. I'm sure they're going to bring some of the concepts along with him from New England, which will help him because he's obviously been an elite for twenty years. I don't necessarily know that Cam bring any of that Carolina offense unless of course, Josh mcdaniels went back to look at cams MVP season to see what he did really well under see he can recreate that for him can't play that way. Do you think? I don't know if he can anymore. That's the thing that I worry about athletic running quarterbacks that are big like him and Josh Allen and Sam Darnold now if they lower their shoulders like they have. You know you're not going to last very long in this league, and that's why you gotta be careful and that's why you gotta protect yourself and I. Look I think he's still a great enough athlete to be able to do some of those things but I don't think that's going to be a full dosage of that up there in the New England, patriots offense no way. All right a half past nine final time at least during this show today Chris Lopresti powerful moment that did eventually take place at city field last night sandwiched between a lot of nonsense as it turned out mets and Marlins did come out on the field of forty two second moment silence in honor of Jackie Robinson, and then the mets are exiting the field after both teams exchanged wave of. To one another so it would appear as though. After a pointed moment. That the mets and Marlins will not be playing baseball tonight. Have a black lives matter shirts. Left on top of home plate yes. Chris. I was out yesterday I got home about seven, forty five and caught up all this was how we in Gary were they aware what was going on like? How definitely was not because if I had played you the extended cut, we played him in the first hour and kind of cut it there at twenty seconds or whatever he said and it would appear I guess that won't be baseball tonight. So they definitely were not tipped off ahead of time at least how he wasn't. I'm not sure about they went through the pregame shows and then. Expected at some point to see a game, and then that's what happened I mean everything was very much up in the air the you know the beat reporters that cover the team weren't quite sure exactly what was going to happen either. So especially, with everything that happened with brody and the live Mike and Whatnot it, there seemed to be some confusion about what eventually was going to happen. So, you credit the players for you know putting together a nice moment there. The player. Reps from bowl. Teams, Michael Conforto, and Miguel row hostage part definitely came across. Well, it was quite a day for Brody a few a few hours after he was on with Joe and Evan here on the Fan this livestream on the mets website, the hot mic and the live camera picks up the private conversation he's having with a couple of staffers who were off camera talking about the plan for how they were GONNA handle. Last night's game players had already decided privately they didn't WanNa play, but apparently someone was pushing a different idea. Solutions. Superpower three, three. Great just So He's Trying to wonder and I've been thinking about this all morning. Who the hell is taping that and right putting that up online. Why so I think that that's a stream that runs in the press conference room for whatever reason. It live on the website, the problem which. So. Everything that he was saying was live on the website. Yes. But it was uploaded to the website. No No, I think they normally stream for fans that WANNA watch on the website in fact, the twenty year old kid who boomer by the way I believe is a journalism major at University of Maryland A. Talking. Andrew Marchand talked to him and he's the kids said I went to the website to try and find out if they were going to play or not, and this livestream was up and running and sure enough brodie sitting in there with whoever those other guys were I don't know if they had just stepped into that room to have a private conversation, he was waiting to do a press conference at that point I'm not sure but that was. Out there live and all these teams do this. But usually the Mike is turned off right like any time you go to you know the jets website giants website any it doesn't matter. You Click on press conference and you've got the banner sitting there and usually the microphone but it's dead feed there's nothing there and it usually gets turned on right before they start in this case it was on. All right. So who's the dummy that did this? Is, why, question at six o'clock this morning that's why some people were saying they felt maybe whoever got wind of this you know behind the scenes whether at the mets are at. MLB. put it out there to make brody or the commissioner look bad by the way auto. Maryland well, he's the one who put it out on social media. Yes and that God viral correct. Yes. So at our who's in for Bob Dwyer today tells me that that was actually thirty minutes after they use the room for the press conference. So perhaps, like Jerry said, they just hadn't turned the just loved it on. Yes. To Jerry's point having been at jets many times they actually have in the press conference room at least pre. Cova. When you had reporters in there on the wall, they have one of those old school radio on air signs and when it was lit, you would know that the mice were live. So if you were having conversation with another reporter that was their way of letting you know, hey, the mics are live people at home that are streaming. This might be able to hear what you're saying on smart. They'll just be careful so I don't know if they have. That kind of light in that room. But this is what happened yesterday and it Kinda came back to bite brody a little bit except it seemed like a lot of people were supporting what he was saying not so much. The commissioner as we come to learn brody says that wow, I misunderstood it wasn't the commissioner it was free was Jeff Wilpon idea and then Jeff, says I got it from Fred and the whole thing is just a big mess. You had all these statements that came out and brody did later on go back to that press conference room the. Fell on the sword and says, he was just trying to stick up for his guys. I. Want to support players. That's that's fundamental to me to be able to to continue to reinforce my support support for players and their ability to express themselves in a winner in which which they want to, which makes sense the former agent of course, and he's going to be an agent once again. Right. Rather than later probably, and you had the statements from Jefferson Fred last night pretty much blasting him that he spelled his name correctly them they misspelled it. So there was a lot to digest from mass yesterday. On a positive note there was good feedback Dominic Smith emotional comments, Wednesday night including from his own teammates and brody himself. We're family and it begins with us. We respect each other we re root for each other. We support each other and we treat each other equally that needs to happen beyond that Clubhouse Baseball Wise Brody with Joan Evan yesterday before all of the chaos ensued trade deadline on the way will they be an active buyer? There's so many factors that are going going on right now and We have to be be careful of and pay attention to, but to make deal to improve our team. Absolutely we're GONNA look look to do that. If that makes sense because they still have high expectations for the season to this point to not meeting them, you know we want to start playing better baseball. You know that that needs to happen and we we would be extremely disappointed if we didn't didn't make playoffs well, they can always this weekend you got the five big ones with the Yankees expecting. Jordan Montgomery, and Michael Walker for game one at the stadium. This afternoon, we'll have coverage beginning at three twenty, five bowl teams yet to name a starter for the NIGHTCAP. Aaron. Boone detail Joe Evan, they'll likely go with the bullpen game for that one. Boone's team enters today's action in the midst of their first five game losing streak in two years. In the meantime, we've gotta go out and and just find a way to play better and start winning some games that would be good as they wait to. Get healthy bodies back boone again said it's possible Aaron. Judge Lands on the I l. with some more calf tightness. But TJ Lemay could return as early as tomorrow. He and Giancarlo Stanton took live EP, at the stadium yesterday, we covered the situation earlier this week he feels the Yankees are intentionally spacing out his starts to avoid the seventeen million dollar vesting option for next season boone publicly of course, says, that's not the case we're coming out of a four or five at with the rain a five day. Break essentially like an all star break I was kind of setting up our rotation cordingley nothing more nothing less than that. So maybe in this case, that's why he got push-back but he hasn't pitched a whole lot so far their schedule has been quirky, but think it's pretty safe to say they would like to do what they can to avoid that option for next season, we'll look for the NBA playoffs to resume as early as tomorrow after. The players some of them at least change their mind yesterday and they voted to move forward. Also, you had Michael Jordan of between the Players Association and the Board of Governors and the owners as they figure out that situation for the Orlando bubble the NHL calling off last night's games that we know games tonight as well. They planned to resume tomorrow. So look for the islanders, the flyers to play game three sometime tomorrow noon in Toronto. Schedule Okay I had not seen that. So there you go afternoon game for the flyers and the island after they were supposed to play last night the jets among the teams who did not practice or scrimmage yesterday as they had internal meetings and discussions about how to move forward here, and what they wanted to say, what they wanted to present as an organization in the face of the racial unrest that continues in our country here the giants worked yesterday they continue internal conversations as well. Joe Judge says they need to give it some deep thought. This is not a short term project for us. To Do to check a box and say, okay, we were involved in that that was we won't actually do something evolves community and give back to those who are behind them very important me to express to the American families and to the team that it's our responsibility to be connected this community and the people who show US support we have to get out of actual sport and that was also him talking just overall kind of his philosophy on how they. Wanted to give back and what he said to the owners when he took the job so not so much as it pertains to this specific situation, but it also applies I did just see on twitter the giants are moving forward with their scrimmage I guess tonight yeah. At metlife stadium. So whatever they discussed internally, they have not chosen to four go there practice and their scrimmage that's supposed to take place tonight and I just Rutherford and I see Ralph. Says it's not televised anywhere be nice. If that was even if you streamed it, I would love to watch football tonight. It would be a little nice change but I guess not not color Blake Martinez with Joe and Evan today early thoughts on judge as a head coach. Guy. that. Attention to detail all time super serious, super intellectual about football He understands literally. I. Think Everything About Football. They have a good season. One of the greatest feats we've ever seen a first year young head coach in these conditions in these times and the injuries and the lack of the secondary. Could you imagine if they're actually pretty good the job this guy went into. That'd be great. It usually takes a while for it to take hold. That's right thing and their schedule the start the season against those five top teams who brutal it is it is I mean honestly I the more I think about it depending on what happens with injuries and everything else because that obviously is gonNA play a factor here Pittsburgh Chicago San Francisco La Rams, and then the Dallas, cowboys there at Chicago, there at the rams and they're at the cowboys. Pittsburgh. In San, Francisco at home to of the best defense is in football, you're going to have a left tackle. That's going to be running around China you know blocked T., J. Watt and. Nick Bosa. It's you know it's GonNa be. It's GonNa be difficult, and then you got Aaron Donald in the middle there for the rams and then of course, you've got the cowboys who are loaded on offense. And the secondary for the giants is going to be a huge question mark. That is that is a tough tough five games stretch right there. Fleet let's skip ahead to Ebony Ingram quickly here he joined Joe and Evan as well, and at one point they asked him to compare and contrast ally Manning, and Daniel Jones quarterbacks within their locker room be no they. They definitely have a similar they're both. Really Corny. So a little bit knocked there but he did kind of say tongue in cheek and supportive way here was the follow up these little youngest. So these they might be tab bit cooler but Great Master the Dad Jokes. So they're definitely different different guys but it was it's just been a blessing to be out both of them. So there's a nice to comment at the end there. We know why Wisconsin he said the master of the DAD jokes. We've heard some of those along the way. So. Nice. lighthearted comments there for me Evan Ingram on the two quarterback he's played with here for the giants What else can I tell you things? We haven't hit on today just little things Lute Olson all the famer basketball coach who led Arizona Arizona's the National Championship nineteen ninety-seven pass away believe early this morning after midnight at the age of eighty five. Hideki. Matsui Yama BMW championship after one round at Olympia fields in Illinois and that course playing a little tougher. Boston did last week he was one of only three players under par yesterday Roy mcelroy among a group three back at even-par. Last week's winner Dustin Johnson opened with over seventy one and tiger woods bogeyed his final three holes for three hundred, seventy three's he is. A. Real Golf course. Playing tough on. Thursdays. What's IT GONNA look like when they get to Sunday? Oh, boy lookout those guys. Will make it easier maybe. Yeah, I guess. So they've they've I know they were saying it was kind of set up like a US Open which is good since the US Open at winged foot right around the corner before I hit moment boomer I got ask so you're offering you know you tex Jerry yesterday, come meet me for a drink. You guys go to dinner I'm playing golf and colts neck I mean you're aware I'm a Momma's county New Jersey Resin as well. Right? Just I don't know that you didn't know that.

So if you're looking at somebody to grab a post round drink with next, you know you've got my don't don't don't talk to me now. Now it's up to Jerry and AL to get you involved in something down there because they plus plus boomer asked Jerry, because Jerry they were looking for of the celebrity that is Jerry Recco restaurant in particular. boomer didn't really want. You. Know all all the people or Nicolas to bring up was like you know. I really love Jerry RECCO. He lives right up the road and I'm like, Oh wow. Okay I'll buy yes we know.

But of course, there were extenuating circumstances do I have to understand the environment in which were in between the oilers and the Bengals and Sam Wash and Jerry Glanville to appreciate what the Hell happened in that game those two coaches hated each other the get it aims hated each other right walked up the Warren Moon after the game say, Hey man. I'll see in a couple of weeks just remind your guys that I was on the field but all this crap off. Because I know who's going to feel the brunt of it when we see you in a couple of weeks, is going to be my ass on the ground. That's stupid. Astrodome down there in used and sure enough it was you through a seventy four yard touchdown pass to make forty-five nothing late third quarter. That was that was. that. Was a hitch pass through it. The goal at the line of scrimmage and a guy made five guys missing random for touchdown maybe but it's more fun just to say you through a seventy four yard touchdown. Pass up thirty eight nothing. Of course not boomers fault on. That's the way it went down late on the head coaches, right? One hundred percents always. Thanks. All banks. Chris. Chris Gray weekend man good job this week.

Starting 9 Episode 202 - NLDS Wrap, Goodbye A's & Cole vs Glasnow

"Oh episode to go to it is third. Thursday night eleven thirty seven. PM On the eastern coast and we're watching the end of the padre season right now. Sad Times. Sad Times. Game, it's just the end of the game or is the. Top, six, eight to dodgers. The Yankees just forced a decisive game five against the Tampa Bay rays. The Oakland as their season, DALLAS? I'm sorry. Yep. Is over the MARLINS storybook, season. Is over a lot of storylines making huge huge progress today and. If. You're listening to this on Thursday night. You're crazy person. You're probably listen to this on Friday morning, Friday afternoon during your commute maybe out the office today will tonight there will be a decisive game five between the Raisin Yankees and I am going to be fully erect for that raise. Yankees game. You know why Dallas? Because one tyler glasnost has been dubbed the starter on short days dress fo- Goo smokey. The bear told you only you can prevent forest fires. There is no preventing the ski in fire that is going down in jared's apartment menu. Will is now on the what. Skin fires going to be happening at my apartment Dallas. Oh. That's right. Yeah. Wheels up. OPS. Cheese steak. Going Philly Oh is there a stream they're doing? I think they're doing a street while we're still doing our stream. Oh, that's right. Let me actually send that text right now actually wait until we talk about the good folks at Roman, but I think I'm going to Philly for game five. It's the only game on the slate. And my plan is you know I wanNA show face obviously I want to be there but like I also don't want to bail on all members of the grounds crew that in tuning in for fucking ten plus hours every single night and day that we've been broadcasting for all the postseason games. So I think I'm just to bring my laptop and I'm going to prop it up on the table and I'm still gonNA do stream with you and I'm just going to be in Philly for it but know. I I don't Wanna I don't WanNa back on the people. So I'm I'm I'm I guess I'm going to be there for there's but like I also want to make sure that I'm still doing the stream with you as well. Well, this is called synergy. You'll be in the background of their stream or Was Tomorrow. Okay. Yes. So you'll be in the background of their stream and they will be in the background of our stream, right? I mean, really it's all our stream. Fair enough. But. Again, I will most definitely be fully erect. For the first inning when tyler glass now takes the mound for the Tampa Bay rays in. Game Five. Do you have any solutions for me like how 'cause I don't want like depending on how long he's going to be out there for I. Don't I want to make sure that I'm lasting longer yes. Starts Slow. Start slow, heavy loop. If in the event. You're getting a little aggressive and you feel like it's going to be. Let me. Remind. You gotta you gotTA swipe jeered. Swipe on there and you know who can help you with that who can help me with that can help you with that. Like the like the soldier they have been in the game. Roman. Roman jared. The. Swipes.

Just A. Little? Swipe. Daughters And you are locked in easy. Easy delay of launch. If you know what I'm getting at, you're going to be able to satisfy all of the viewers who have gathered around and are waiting to see that bright rocket stream across their sky. We might be disappointed 'cause ain't gonNA happen for a while you're going to you'RE GONNA burn. Gentleman you'RE GONNA. That's about you don't WanNa burn you're going to be cooking you're going to be cooking. That's what you're going to be doing when you're going to be cooking because we'll Roman is GonNa make sure that you. Are In the game as long as you want to be a simple swipe. And, the fact that they can ship it to your door and nobody has to know that you are stepping your game up. That's the winner. Nobody knows very discreet shipping. Simple best part about it you gotta get Roman Dot com slash starting. And you get your first month of swipes for just five bucks when you your monthly plan figured out. So. Once you get swipes dialed in, you realize how many swipes on average you go a Wiki and five bucks. Boom. Done do get Roman. DOT, com. Slash starting. That's GET ROMAN DOT com. Slash starting and get yourself in the game. Old Baby. Oh Baby, I'm going to need. I'm GonNA absolutely need it I'm so excited for this game five. Before we get to that, let's start at the top. Start at the top because it was two o'clock out here on the East Coast, we have braves, marlins and I don't want to insult mall. But this series was a tune-up. It was a tune-up for. The braves were clearly the better team shutout, Miguel Rojo's that he was. A dedicated morning would fan but he is you watch this morning would So shut up to Miguel row Haas of the Marlins but that team. They didn't stand a chance. They did not stand a chance against the Atlanta braves and we're talking about this on a livestream. Trying to give the MARLINS even. MARLINS credit for dismissing I? mean. You give the braves credit for dismissing the MARLINS in three game sweep. But let's give the braves even more credit because not only did they dismiss the Cincinnati reds into games not only did they dismiss? The marlins in three games but they did it without my Rocca they did it without Cole Hamels and. Mike Fulton of IT WHO I mean. It's not like an injury thing. You're going into the season expecting Sirocco to be a factor. season, he just he wasn't right. He wasn't right. But when he was right in two, thousand, eighteen starring nine alum. He was one of the best pitchers in the League at that point that he was dealing it was a deal fest with that Guy the wheels fell off. So now like three dudes that. You had expectations of being guys. In your road, you're you're working with them. So I guess it's more a shoutout to a guy like Max freed, who is an absolute stud in and didn't even pitches best in game one either like he didn't pitch his best but you know the braves went anyway and then a guy like Ian Anderson who I've called of the most underrated pitchers in the league and yes, he hasn't. He hasn't hit double digit starts in the Big Leagues yet. So it's Kinda hard to be underrated when the sample size of that small but. I I look at a guy like six Oh Sanchez right six though Sanchez probably has a very similar sample size to Anderson is dealing with everyone's on six of Sanchez's Dick because he's on pitching Ninja and he's blowing one hundred hundred and he's got nasty nasty nasty shit and and we should be blowing six. Oh Sanchez. But we should also be saving some of that oral lubricant for Ian Anderson as well because the filthy change piece, that's what I like about him. But the fact that you've seen these young dudes step up and. Fill in and basically grow into these spots very early in their career. Her at a time in a very weird see. Is in a lot about these dudes shared because the ability to adapt in. Just experienced failure and progress as young guys are graded. That's what you're looking for. The stuff is the stuff on the field. The production will come if they can handle those mental hurdles. So with all that being said, being able to digest the pressure that is undoubtedly placed on them whether it's by virtue of being forced to step up because of injuries in the rotation or lack of production in the rotation highlighting US AROCCA NFL. then. That that is their time to shine and you're just not sure what it's GonNa look like when you guys like freed and Anderson, and then right the guys step up and start to spin it. You you need the offense to answer. But what you've got out of the mound and got from the mound in those three dudes is historic team. The bullpens been bugging great do. OPEN HASN'T TV already, get a team y'all ray sub one. Sub, one One, I believe that it's like point nine, two point nine to forty nine innings to start the bucket postseason point nine, two, era, fifty, nine strikeouts to nine walks opponents hitting a buck sixty nine against the braves this postseason. Stupid. There hasn't been a team with this kind of dominance since the nineteen o five giants nine, thousand, nine, hundred, zero, five, your Grandad's great. GRANDAD's giants those giants. I mean. Four out of five shutouts and one of those games was thirteen innings. shutouts was the thirteen inning walk off. Walk off knock to indy. You had to do was just not let the other team score for thirteen innings can. that. Yeah, and it's it's not like an again is another tip of the cap to the braves more so than I guess it would be a knock against against the marlins but there was a there was traffic there is traffic for the MARLINS. But they ended up going three for twenty with runners in scoring position that's not going to get it done. That's not going to get it done. It's just not and. I don't know I don't know how how you personally would view that is that more of a knock against the marlins for not having any timely hits or is that more of the Catholic eighty Atlanta braves just kind of shut you the fuck down that's exactly what happened. That's where. The saying of good pitching can beat good hitting on any given day that right there. Is a prime example of that. Carrying the braves out both the braves out both and that's why you know I think pretty much everyone that filled out a bracket. WHAT THE FUCK Abolished kept going up. Eric hosmer displaying an ability that he has developed over a couple of years here. Recently, two balls in the air all in the air. Man Jay. We're here to see the. I. Wish. Here but. Back to my point about the braves, they can do it all they can do both like this is a team like when we're talking about filling out postseason brackets, you'd be hard pressed to find someone that I didn't have a dog in the fight pit not picking the dodgers to win the world series like that was the very clear obvious pick. The popular pick and I guess my question to You Dallas. Is it crazy to think that the braves could? Emerge from the analyst. Yes. Over the dodgers here, the wild card is how the young rotation stacks up. That's it. You figure these guys have. Two more starts. Maybe. Three of them, two or three of them have. Three more starts for more. To in the CS. To in the series if they get there. And so. How they how they? Continue. Is going to be the biggest impact that's what's going to matter. Another thing that's why that's what we're talking about right now. L. Dynamic rotation full of young guys has gotten the job done and. At the rate at which they have gotten the job done we've GonNa fucking Balk that would just happen as a Bacha. So, what's going to matter is How these young guys perform. For the finish. And if you're looking at what they've done right now what thirty three punch outs, twenty eight, and a third innings or some shit like that just like. The starters, the starting rotation. Like dude filthy. Yes. If that continues if that's a trend, yet thirty-three punch outs and five blocks in twenty eight and two thirds innings. Yeah So let me ask you this because we talked about this. On the livestream, how there are no off days here like for you know if you're playing replaying a best of five, there's no travel and they're trying to get the games in because of COVID. So the Tampa Bay rays in New York Yankees will have played this five game series and five days. How big is it for a team like the braves to sweep and get those days off huge because it allow any team, but it's it's massive because it allows you to manipulate the rotation. It allows you to give you the rest if there's places that you need it whether that's in the line up in the bullpen pan for whatever reason because you're thinking, you're starters have done a decent job. If you're in a position to sweep, you've probably got a good body of work out of your starting rotation. And that's the difference even between. A three zero series in a four. One series is there's probably been a game that you've had to really get into that bullpen at some sort of length. Not. Having to do that. Can also be. Blessing there's guys who are better than. If consists. So now it's a matter of are your guys down there the type who do well with rest and would appreciate it. Or do they want to be cranking right now because? On the calendar it's October, it's probably more like July. They might WANNA. They might want to keep going. So how you balance that, with Sim, Games live ABC's for some bullpen who haven't gotten time on the mound giving your regulars just some some looks like there's a multitude of ways to go about it. So I think depending on who you're club is how you feel about it where you're at health. Wise. That's how you process these three days or these days off. Sorry. Yeah it's. It's going to be something. It's GonNa be something because both of these teams are going to have some rests I mean, the the padres just scratched across another run here in the six on a box. So it's eight to three but. If it plays out this way you're going to have dodgers braves in. A best of seven and Elsie s both teams rested both teams skin unleash their stable of pitching and that they would choose any way that they would like So that's GONNA be. That's GonNa be great series. I think that that one like I guess we'll get. To that once but. I would say that that one is GonNa be very, very, very, very exciting. Next up. Raise. Yankees game for the Tampa Bay rays a chance to close it out. Didn't happen. Did Not Happen you had. You had a game right? There was not just. Not a ton of action in it but like you guys get the job done for the New York Yankees like you had a guy like Luke voight who hadn't homered yet in the postseason, he hits a mammoth home run I. think it was like five feet shy of what stanton his bomb, the other night and then glared Torres Kinda put it away and then the Yankees just poured it on late The offense didn't really show up at all for Tampa. y'All. A tip the cap to a guy like Jordan. Montgomery because. You, know the Tampa Bay rays put themselves in a position to have a game to burn in an elimination game for their opponent and Yankee fans were bugging out knowing that Jordan Montgomery was the guy on the mound to save their season and he was good enough and obviously you know he not in there. It's not a deal fast but it could have gotten ugly early it didn't he passed the baton and they kept passing it. I, mean you had to be able to get to a guy like Britain to give you a more than just the three outs. That's a luxury. Chapman gave you more than three outs that's that's a luxury. Blowing One oh one. Let's not just overlook that. Yeah he he was. That's not ninety six flat. That's not an angry ninety eight. That's it's no one. Chapman looking like Chapman and. It was a big deciding factor there. Were you surprised? Were you surprised that the damp obey Bay rays couldn't close it out in four? Yes and I think yes. because. I'm factor in a lot of the law like question marks surrounding the Yankees approach and what kind of impact that can have on the clubhouse like. Do you show up today. Questioning what the lineup is GonNa look like and now are you wondering why the lineup looks the way it does because of You know the Devi Garcia situation and it's just like. What what we expect and I feel like that can let can lyndon self to a down lack of focus and that was an opportunity for the raise two pounds but knowing that the rays. Weren't weren't locked in as far as like having a confident like Kazoo started the ball game. Were started the ball game, right? What for the race? For the rays of. What's that? Why am I drawing a blank here? Toll Writing. FUCKING I'm trying to say Yarbrough came in immediately. Yes. WHO The fuck? Why can't they. Give Mary. Thompson. Oh Yeah Ryan Thompson Irio, Yeah Ryan. Ryan Thompson starts the game. And not effective. Not. Effective your Yarbrough in right after. and. Why Not Start Your role in to get the to get the lefties in there so that you can run out there probably. So That sort of bullpen approach. But? You feel like the offense with Randy arosa right? Karatas. Yeah. He's. He's on another planet I mean at least going into game for it was. Like well over six hundred in the post season homers left and right he's going up always going dead salaries in Palmer's. Got One coal to I. Think he was like ninety eight up and that was the one that he popped dead center. Special. Special special player. He's had himself a series. He's like that's thing about the postseason. How many people knew about him coming into the postseason like how how many radars was that guy on and now I'm not gonNA say he's a household name, but you fucking know the name if you're a baseball fan. Yeah and we'll this is what this is what this stage and this is what these games can do for players for teams for fans as you get a look at these young dudes who they're like, you know what? We're looking for some magic here. That's what we're looking for Wisey in the lineup Y Z whatever. This is why and you get those opportunities you build on them, and now all of a sudden, you are the spark plug for your squad. In the biggest most pivotal point of their season. So now because no travel. So there's no off days you gotTa Game Five. And a normal series I mean, you'd have those those off days built in if you're going to five game series. A travel day after game too. You'd have a travel you'd have traveled after game four. So you don't have that luxury in this series but both teams are kind of just saying fuck it. We're going with our best regardless of days rest here. So you're going to get gear Cole. You're. GonNa get Tyler Glasnost. So Gear Kohl's on three days rest and you saw the tweet earlier. You know after the Game Aaron. Boone says Hey Garrett Cole. Garrett Cole says, give me the ball and I mean. Whatever I'm sure that'll be their rally cry Gimme the ball. It's like well, no, we were. We were going to give to ball anyway like we. Pay. Half half a billion dollars like, yeah, we were. We were going to give you the ball. We didn't give it to you because you ask for type deal. So Kohl's going on three days. Rest Glasnost was going on two days rest and I don't think you probably haven't done that since high. School. But for the folks who haven't played. Can you sort of take us through? The. I guess mentality and also just like. What can we expect from Tyler glass now on two days rest because we've seen guys go on three days rest before and a guy like coal is probably more built to be that guy like we saw. The do it fucking twenty starts in a row and he got traded to the brewers in two, thousand, eight, I believe. I mean, like we'll never see around like that ever again, he put his body on the line while he was coming up free agency, which is fucking insane like if he had done that for the Yankees in two thousand nine if they needed him to, that's like all right we get it like that's awesome like they paid you and and this is your team. He was about to be a free agent. He didn't owe the brewers shit. They traded for him from Cleveland and he? Just put his body on the line to get them to the postseason and he basically single handedly did that So I'm not really worried too much about Garrett Cole on three days rest but a guy like glass now, not exactly built like a Garrett Cole and it's one fewer day of rest. So what can we expect from Tyler is now in game five, one inning plus the plus being decided hitter to hit her with them depending on how fishing he is throughout first inning. After that. It's about whatever conversation they've had with glasnost on. He's comfortable doing and they're comfortable doing and you would think that with what the future holds for him it's not stressing him too much especially on two days rest. Depending on how he goes about his business that could be a work day. So if he pitched to what he pitched yesterday and he had rest today. And today I thought it was Tuesday. No. Pitch. Yesterday. Herbs up Noah's Morton yesterday. Yeah. Yesterday the day before the day before yesterday. So he had. Yesterday and today for rest. Today. was probably a bullpen day and if not, it was a light day and maybe tomorrow a Bullpen Day depending on how he operates what his restroom recovery program is. As he's basically having his bullpen day on the mound. Correct. which is what the Red Sox did in twenty eighteen like when everyone was like the Red Sox don't have a fucking bullpen and it's like, all right. Well, we're just GONNA use our starters. As relievers we're going to have their bullpen days on the mound, and then the you saw Chris sale coming relief. You saw David price coming in really if you saw rick coming in relief and they got some big outs and that's exactly that's exactly what happens in. The the the caveat to that is knowing that you're going on two days rest. The other team knows that as well and they're probably. You're not going to stress Tyler lies now and. They, understand. That, they would have to set their lineup accordingly if this was a regular day where they're expecting a righty to go through their lineup two, maybe three times well now maybe they're not loaded up with righties. If they're getting a righty and they feel like the lefties coming in behind them. They're probably going to just play it like they're going to face a righty all day long because they'd like that right handed to see that lefty Allah the euro. Situation. So are you are like when you say all right. We're not going with our normal right handed pitcher on the mound lineup because we're anticipating the lefty are intimidating blake. Snell piggybacking tyler glass now. That is a very real possibility and that. Because SNELL has an extra day right and he would then be matching a Garrett Cole, and if you're the raise, the unconventional wisdom that you've exercised would possibly lead you to see. What if the Yankees want to build their bull or build their lineup this way. And, fall into the hands of lefty. Great. If they don't. and. They WANNA play like they're going to see a lefty anyway. That's fine because it's Blake Snell he's going to face righties and lefties and we're okay with that. And at that point, you're hoping by the end of it all your through five innings each side here. Is Looking to get through I would say five innings. With their with their. Opener Slash Piggyback Starter but Gary Cole is starting the ball game. and. The difference is going to be how efficient his? Before they go to the bullpen and how efficient a blake SNELL can be after. And what depends on that or what impacts? That is what glasnost does 'cause if he can get glasnost throws. Twenty eight pitches. And get you through two innings. You'll take that. How does he get to the second inning a clean and easy first-inning? And we know what things look like with men on base, for Glass. And I, promise you I. Promise You I. Promise You. If guys get on base, early. Early in that game with Loz Nolan base. You will see a track meet breakout they will run. And they will put the pressure on him because they will say you know what? You think you're just going to cost him through two innings here. Fuck that. We're going to get too early. WE'RE GONNA make we're gonNA see what your featuring, beat us Blake Snell fetus whoever else you think you've got lined up back there that could very well be the approach. All, right. It's the gun to your head. You have. Glasner now going one inning. No one plus one plus London he's GonNa come out and go BA- hitter to hit her in the second yep. So on depending on and and again that all depends on what that lineup looks like tomorrow. But yes that's the that would be my guess. Rest. Yes. I. Think he goes to I. Think he goes to because. I mean if it's it's either. We could very, well British too but. I like I'm not pencilling him in for two. No matter what because those pitches can give you forty pitches. What's that? He give you forty pitches I would say, yes between thirty and forty the differences. If you throw twenty eight pitches in the front. Yeah Yeah Yeah that first inning. That's not fifteen pitches in the first inning and that feels different. Right? Right Luke Voigt actually predicted a victory said we're going to win. We're, GONNA, win this game. and. That was then re tweeted by Bob Nightingale who is. He's the biggest jinx on baseball twitter. So we'll see. Gary Sanchez got bench again in game four. In favor of Hagi. Do you think that will see Gary Sanchez over under. A half a plate appearance for Gary Sanchez in game. Five over. You think we're GONNA see him. Yep, he's well, we know he's not starting. So you're going to have the but I mean like even hagi hidden a little bit. So late in the game power threat. Yeah. I don't know I'm GonNa take the under I don't think we see him. In power threat because then the question is going to be. Well, let's rewind. Let's talk about Higgins for a little bit. At what point do you just become the catcher if you're the entire rotations personal catcher That's a great question. That's a great question because. I mean Garrett Cole is going to have whoever he wants behind the plate. Right. So I mean but he's also been catched eating ishers not named Garrett Cole. So yeah I I think I mean we saw I remember in twenty thirteen twenty thirteen Jarrod Saltalamacchia was the red sox starting catcher for the entire season and then you think it was by the. I Dunno game five or six of the CS David Ross was just the guy like salty didn't see the fuck field again there's like well. pitchers are working better with Dave Ross. So he's your fucking catcher and hit in two. So great now works out. It's the same thing we're higgins is he's hitting pitchers love pigeon to him. Here's your fucking spot on the bench Gary, you're get comfy unless unless there is like a spot where it's like I said, start moving was damage against a certain lefty like, yeah. We'll get a shoddy Gary Sanchez with the Batman and around the seventh inning going around in the bowl or in the dugout. Making sure Aaron Boone season that these up and ready to go. I him get an AB. Getting in there especially, if the answer down specialist if the Yankees are now. We'll see we'll see I i. don't think we see him but someone that we did see. On the street tonight. The debut of Dallas's grandmother.

Around. there. It is It's over Dallas. The runs The runs over. Slammed Diego. All right. It's going to slam the door or on their season. Yeah it's. It's it sucks because I think all year we were kind of tooting the Horn of man if the dodgers and padres meet each other in postseason that's going to be a fucking showdown and it's a sweep it's a sweep for the dodgers but that's not an indictment on how good the padres are in terms of the measuring stick. That is the LA dodgers. They didn't have my club or they had them for an ending that doesn't count and they didn't have the Nelson lament who I mean. He like a fucking to we are a this year. He was an absolute stud. You didn't have either of those guys and I think what? Really? Not Swayed the series because obviously the dodgers the better team here but not squeaking out a win in game two and you had. The dodgers weren't. The dodgers weren't threatened by the padres until game two when they start amount that comeback, the Machado homer and I mean it was a six five ball game in the ninth inning and you had Eric Hosmer at the plate with the bases loaded like that was not an easy win. PADRES. Lose you go in a game three. All right. So are they gonNa take that Oh man we hung with them we had them we had them right there. Are they going to take that into game three? Now? They got their doors blown off and it's curtains for the padres and nominee people are surprised. You know if you say, Oh, well, you know the dodgers GonNa play the padres in a best of five and they don't have to Nelson limit they don't have. Mike Clemens. WHO's GonNa win that series a lot of. People have not dodgers I just thought that despite not having those two starting pitchers that we would have gotten. More of a fight from San Diego's affect air. Yes but that all goes back to what everybody knows. Regardless of how much emphasis and importance you wanna place on the bullpen. If you've got one pitcher who can get you through five, six, seven innings of baseball. Game. In the postseason? That is invaluable invaluable, and you're talking about one guy. That they traded. Players to go get to pitching the PO- Seven. Seven and he couldn't pitch. More than one inning. And limit. Agai to your point who had been doing work all damn year long, and now you don't have either one of those guys to pitch in either of the first to bowl games in a three game series. So you're on one of them out there and he gives you one inning. and was it worth it or did it matter and I don't mean was it worth it because of what may be around the corner? No, no no. No I mean. What I mean is, did you get what you thought you would be getting from him making a start no. Not at not at all, not even close so that right there matters right out of the gate. One goes well, one does it you're one one heading into the third game? Right I. Was a little disheartened to see some players say that Cleverly being able to go that one inning and being heard was Karma Ford happened in Cleveland. I'll I don't know if I like that very much. I mean did did club make a mistake? Yeah. Was it a bonehead decision? Yeah. Did he deserve to get hurt and miss the fuck and postseason now I don't I don't I. Don't know. It's thing. You. Know I. It. It does it sounds aggressive and I don't like that implication either. to play devil's advocate. And just because. I have felt very close to home as you have the effects. Of covid nineteen. Could you imagine what kind of conversation we're having? If somebody else on that team maybe somebody who had a Predisposition. To really being affected by something like this was indeed affected by this or somebody's family. God forbid like. Imagine. Imagine the pitchforks that would be out for him. Then right and I I like it it to the idea of putting the nets up. Because, the balls are coming off the Bat at one hundred, twenty miles an hour these days. Let's do that. Why is it GonNa ruin the experience or whatever what are we waiting for? Are we waiting for someone to die and then for it to be the move to make that what we're waiting for? So I can understand where people might be like Oh. Yeah. Karma because you know somebody in that clubhouse could've been really severely affected and in what are we just going to dismiss it so I get that sight of to doesn't mean I like to hear. ballplayers. Kick that dust. At another ball player but. Do. I. Have the ability to understand where someone. Coming from yes. Doesn't mean agree with it just means I'm trying to do my best to put myself in somebody else's position who might have really strong feelings about it maybe stronger than your. Either way. You know just to kind of circle back on like the Padre season. There was a lot of fun I. was probably the most fun that I've had watching another team. Probably since the sixteen Indians like following a team that closely. Where you know you're you're keeping track of players that. Oh, I like this player, but I haven't really had a real chance to sink my teeth into one of their full seasons or now you're discovering new players. It's like Oh, this j krona worth guy he's pretty fucking good It had been a long time since I've been able to do that and you know it helps that they're a west coast team and I would watch the red sox and then Red Sox are over turn on Don or Sillo. Go you got you got the San Diego Padres So. Yeah. I mean like thousand fun that was a fun team to watch. They didn't quite. Get the job done obviously There's an explanation for it. So I think you can go into this offseason. abloy's we gave a hell and I think things might have been a little bit different. Had We stayed healthy and fuck they can still go out this winter and get a guy like Trevor Bauer and then what happens you know like like Trevor Bauer tweeted Last night he's like, oh. Yeah. I mean like San Diego Padres, they could use a they could use another guy adds to their stable of horses that. Who Else is getting in on the? On action a little bit. Just a little just a little reminder. You're here in air that starting pitching premium especially in the postseason and that. That might be a glaring weakness for some teams. Yeah. WHO's that? Stroh show. Is, he, yeah just just saying we just he just said and I'm paraphrasing but he said something along those lines like on twitter. Yeah. On twitter you can. You can I mean you'll be able to look it up by the time I. Probably very incorrectly paraphrase for him, but it said something along the lines of yeah. You can see that for some teams in the post season starting pitching is. Is something that they need something that might not be strength right now for some clubs and Shrew, I'm a broken record when I tell you. You want to worry about the guys who into the game why are we losing focus about the guys who could start the game and potentially just hand the ball right to the guy who ends the game feel like having a few of those. is, really important like I. I'd like to plan for those guys. Three thirty seven PM, today. Marcus Stroman tweeted quality starting pitching. Is a big need for many teams in the League. Oh. So it was even the postseason it was just the league. Want to get to the postseason but what three three I mean. So that was probably like that was the end. That was the end of the marlins braves game and just the beginning of the as so it was it after the Laureano homer it was just the beginning of the as game. That's one minute before I pitch I. Trying to say Dallas you think he's advocating. Ono. Do just saying I mean the as can't afford Marcus stroman with. I didn't I'm not implying anything I'm just saying that Marcus stroman along with Trevor Bauer have identified that starting pitching is a need. For. Teams in the League and I would take that statement one step further and say in the postseason starting pitching is all the more important. That's all I'm saying and Stroman. Bauer. Free agents I just got a question. I just got a question for adults you're. You'RE A. You're broadcaster for the as so you're you're an employee of the NBC Bay area. Correct but you're also an ambassador Oakland A.'s correct correct. So the way that I can recruit a Trevor Bauer you're not allowed to recruit Marcus stroman. That would be completely false I. Don't know that that's what I am four. But in terms I'm just saying hypothetically hypothetically. Hypothetically. If you stroman. were. To. Be Entertaining. The idea of a hypothetical situation in which a contract was being offered to him to play baseball for an organization that I may or may not be an ambassador of. I would feel it would be my duty once I'm was legally allowed to entertain those conversations. To absolutely temperature on how Marcus Stroman felt about playing baseball on the West Coast in general. I was hypothetically employees as a sort of a team on the west coast. Got It. GOT IT I don't know if. I could see him being a West Coast Guy. You. Spend. Time in La. Does. It does I, mean that's that's that's a long way from Oakland SPO-. Don't know but read too much into the whole. Me You struggling? No. No. No A cell overdoing here somewhere to it here. But but I digress. The whole thing in game two with the grabher all celebration and we talked about this at length on the stream. Which I talked about again we had Kevin Youkilis on the stream today. So back to back streams, we sort of discussed this. Manny Machado hits a home run in the sixth off of former teammate. Clayton Kershaw. And fires his bat towards the towards his own dugout. And You know he's trying to get his team up I. Love that. Shit. seventh-inning. Bruiser. Rawal Faces Fernando Totti's junior and gives up what appears to be a two run bomb. To. That would have given the padres a one run the at the time four, three at the time cody bellinger hops up the Centerfield Wall. Snags it brings it back. Crazy catch. Exciting moment, Bruce. Dr, Paul. Takes his hat off, throws his glove and throws his hat and Machado like Dat. Machado is saying fuck you fuck you. I'll be waiting for you because Machado. was was on deck he was next. Up. So then we have the moment where Machado comes up their steps in the box grab it. All comes back out on the mound to face a Machado they're playing the catch right now that. Hit distance four thirteen. Distance covered for belly ninety, seven feet over nineteen out of thirty ballparks. Nine, thousand, nine, hundred, thirty. That is I mean belly begging you can get up there. I mean I feel like. They're enough scrappers defense but right well, people who started. To do this played first base like how is on your team would be. Quality First Baseman. That also go play Centerfield for you at that level because. Your average center fielder is not that play. And you could just put that guy at first base to and then also just put him in Centerfield. That's stupid. Athlete. Big Time. so The next inning and he tries to murder bruiser grabher all with a with a base. The middle ground are all kind of as it and there's an exchange. Machado. Welcome. Back his own dugout and it seems to be playful. Yes. That's the price you. nope not at all. Why? Because that's a young guy on the mound. WHO UNDERSTANDS Everything that has just gone on. Knows that he was excited. He knows what that might look like. After the fact he gets all of that and he understands what manny just said to him about. I'll be waiting for you fuck you although he gets all of that and then he realizes Oh shit I gotta go back out there. So now, he's on the mound out there again. That's probably humorous to him on some level today. Maybe, not at that moment but. You had that exchange with many and he comes running across after you've gotten him out every almost took your fucking leg off. With the ball right back up the middle which I firmly believe if Manny Machado. Could have hit that off his forehead. He would've wanted to and manning dried to hit that ball up the middle and that's good Manny Machado is is he did he kid back up the middle my mad at him for doing so or even thinking that if he were to try to be doing that ends of seeded? No. Not Not at. For doing that at all, if you have the ability to try to hit a ball off my forehead on purpose and you do. Because you don't like what I've said there's literally nothing I can do about that and hats off to you. That's a special fucking skill that would that's very impressive. It is impressive. Playful exchange after. So yeah. So so the idea that slammed Diego is born. In the fashion that it's in. And use, st Everybody or the majority of people in the game either come to your defense or show some semblance of standing and willingness to adjust to the new era and the new. Display excitement. In in baseball. You saw that happen firsthand. So for you to feel that. An NC something like what role does and take exception to it to that extent. That's the head scratcher. Like. Why? Why because he celebrated. In a way that you didn't like. At a moment in the game that you didn't appreciate after something that happened to you. Didn't work out for you. Like those are just the cold hard facts. And the reaction says, all of what I just said you didn't like it because all of those things just tap and so you'd be honest with yourself ago you get your right didn't like it because that was the fucking. That was the go ahead homer. Oh did you also not like it because he fired his glove and you've probably never seen somebody react that way yet also pissed me off. Okay. Well, can you understand people were not happy with how you guys have celebrated in the way you guys have done things at times Manny Machado stealing third base up ex amount like. Okay if you noticed that, what are we here for? WHAT ARE WE ARGUING ABOUT Yeah I mean you already know my take on it. I just said it was weird. And the Internet came after me as if though I said that it all fucking bullshit. What is he doing when a fucking loser Ball Blah Ever was what happened to let the kids play. Celebrate however you want I mean I couldn't care less how people celebrate I just said. That it was a celebration they reminded me of Brad Lidge when the phillies won the world series in two, thousand, eight his. His arms. Yeah. Like he got down on his knee, he fired his hat gets down at like that's what it was where it's like I've never I've never seen. A baseball player fire, their hat in glove and less. They had won the world series like that's that's when you know only do that I don't need this anymore everything's over gets the off season. Now we're champions. You've ever seen employer flip is backed away Joe Batstone. Winning a world. Series. Yeah like in in that moment like that. That's why it was just would Dick Yetlis. because. More. I. Mean Not often at that point, but we've seen it before and like the moment call for it. The same way that the bellinger catch called for an extreme celebration like it's like that was the fucking huge moment. You're you're losing the game if ball goes over the fence and bellinger brought it back. Yeah. My my point is my point is specific physical action like the reason the bat toss from Joe Bats got the attention it did is because nobody had seen somebody stand at the plate like that watch the homer and then throw the bat the way he did like get. Out of here, and like there was a misconception, is he dog in the dude on the mound that just gave it up is he like what's going on and that's where people were like listen things about the Mac into the situation, a country blah blah. There's a lot that factored into that and that's why with your take. The only thing I've said about it is we didn't know and you didn't know I didn't note nobody watching that game from the outside looking in new the grammar all was going back out in the game for that next inning so we can't we can. Apply that Machado new is that I'll fuck it. See you next inning basically. He said I'll be waiting for you and whatever that means you know if you're out here, you know that I was on deck and I'll be waiting for you if not Manny Machado doesn't know any more than you and I know. That's That's a fact. Yeah, it's backed. He doesn't know that any more than you and I know so to get on him or factor in the fact that it is outing wasn't over. tweeted it I tweeted it. Words. So that's why I was like Oh he came back out. But a guy like grabher all like you said like Yukos made the point. Go. Watch these. Winter Ball in Venezuela and the fucking crazy shit that they're doing they're. Like that was light. That was lightweight. Hit, a walk off in winter ball he might not even run the basis. He might just take your microphone and cut a fucking Promo at home plate and walk into the clubhouse. You might. They might. They are not even worried about him touch. You call play. That's the Kinda Shit that might happen in Winter Ball I've been there done that like that's that is true as could possibly be and you nailed it like that and when you don't have that experience. Witnessing the game played in that fashion doing stuff like that and seeing stuff like that is four and to you it's the first time. You've ever even thought about someone pulling something like that on the baseball field how many people had ever seen somebody on on amount and throw a ball over the centerfield fence while being taken out in a big league ballgame itsy Napa Forever Ballard treated treated you to that right? That is the type of Shit you see winter? Ball. Love that. Also, speaking of the Joseba teased the home run That happened today. Zero people are upset with that there praising Jose, Batista as a hero. Yeah. And again, it was because he stood there and people are wondering like all right you through that. Are you looking at the picture now? Are you looking at the homer like who? Who? Who is this burst of energy four law I meant because he hit it off of Sam Dyson. Oh Yeah for sure. No one. No one's feeling bad for that homer getting attempt. No one's feeling bad for any feelings were hurt on the mound at the time of that thing. But. To. Circle back to the main point it was an exciting game to it was. Like I WANNA. Say it was anti climactic because you know you had the drama like Joe Kelly comes ally Kenley Jansen by the way if the dodgers are going to struggle against the braves or wherever they see in the world series, I think it's going to be if they find themselves in a tight ballgame and it's it's a one run game in the ninth inning and you got fucking Kenley Jansen. They're throwing eighty nine mile an hour heaters and trying to sneak like. Well he throws a cutter But like that's going to be something that rears its ugly head like it's not like what we saw in game two. I don't think that that's the last of the Kenley Jansen hiccups that we're. GonNa see this postseason no an and remember on the livestream I said as soon as he came in like, ooh, I don't like this. I don't like this to the lefties and just because of the lack of a law city and The Movement on the pitch is it has been and the lefties are the ones that ate them up. And Jason's been doing this all year the way like if you've been watching the padres I, mean not the powder. If you've been watching the dodgers all year, you know that Janssen has been a heart attack closer because he doesn't have ninety six he's not running ninety seven on the hands to to write. No. Different. Yeah, it's different stuff the villa's down and You can see that he's just not he's not the same guy and that's that's an issue but it isn't. It isn't because you can still roll out by trying and it's like Oh. Yeah. We see we don't have that closer. We can roll up like trying oh Blake's not available today we got Joe Kelley and Kelly is a lockdown closer by any means. But he's an option he's an option with some giddy up. Open basis to strike free guys out. Yeah and that's what he does. He'll. He'll. He'll strike out three before he walks for I can tell you that So that's that's something to keep an eye on as the dodgers moved. Again. That's just kind of what they do and. I guess to kind of close the book on this series. was there anything in particular that stood out to you from the dodgers side of things besides Jansen. Know aside from how How easily it feels like they've been able to just kind of I don't to say coast, but it feels like coast through these games. Yeah I mean even I. Don't know. I feel like. When I came up with the bases loaded in game two I was like, are we going to get a moment here like i? It wasn't like I was sitting there being like I, get this over with obviously the dodgers got this I didn't feel that way I didn't but ended up going the dodgers way and the series went the dodgers and they've they've yet to lose a game as postseason. Let's hope that they don't blow his game and this podcast becomes outdated. The that'd be. Great. Nephew. Bad. That would be I wouldn't I wouldn't want to do this over again. Why that covers it holy, Shit. Don't even realize. The kind of flew through that all right are are AP open as. The Oakland A.'s. The organizer their Dunn's out. the Houston Astros are moving on. and. I don't WanNa. I don't WanNa like you know what? I'M GONNA I'M GONNA lay out I'm GONNA lay out I want we can talk about the Astros moving onto the LCS for the fourth straight year but. I don't want this to be a back and forth discussion about the Oakland A.'s I want you to just this is your the floor is yours. There's nothing to say there's really nothing to say. The offense In. The final game. Did enough. You score six runs in the big leagues. Should win those ball games. Problem is if the other team scores more than you, you don't win those ball games and A bullpen that had been great all year long fantastic all year long. showed. Some. Cracks. And the Astros. It's a damn good team. Regardless of what your opinions are about how they may have had or not had success. With. The scandal and all there they've got good players and they showed up. and. It's almost like they got postseason editions instead of midseason acquisitions Altuve as shows up. Career. took his game to another level like I said before talking that Shit, and back ended up what are you going to do about? You got nothing to say you can't say a fucking thing to that. And that's the beauty about talking that shit and backing it up. Is Now you do if you're Carlos Correa you to look at. The folks that you've been talking to and feel good about yourself now. However they feel about that. That is what it is but. For the as the offense was never able to build those innings I talked about and I've talked about all year long on broadcasts. You just wanted to see them string some stuff together and really put pressure on guys. More than once in a game more than just a moment and they weren't ever ever able to create multiple moments. Chad pender tremendous effort on a bad wheel a big home run. Rumble Laura put the team on his back as much as he could to home runs himself Marquette started to step it up and swing it as the season came to an end in the postseason started. But unfortunately, it just wasn't all happening at the right time. And I think the lack of confidence in. The back end of a starting rotation. Also plays into. How the game is approached? Was Ardo. Seven innings that you would have loved to have gotten that might be a little steep to ask this early on in his career still but that's how this team's going to succeed these guys stepping up in these moments. So it doesn't happen you take it as a learning experience. And you get excited about the core that you have here, and that's really all you can do. That's all you can think about. So I don't want you to think about the fact markets savings a free Jenner that Liam Hendriks is a free agent we don't need to know Hendrix wants to. Talk about that. Shit right now. It's fine if you don't WanNa talk about we want us to talk about but I will say. I think that. There are a lot of people that will be very upset that the Houston Astros are moving on to the American League, championship. Series. And Obviously Oakland A.'s fans are upset about not moving on the American League Championship series. But from interest in baseball standpoint. Oh this be like this. Like this, this doesn't if the baseball if you believe in the baseball gods, then you know that you know what? This was an alternate ending that they were more than no Cape with Nah. Okay. With it playing out this way because. This is like again, the the McGregor. Affect. You. Buy that fight. Because you. Hope that one of them is bleeding on the canvas when it's all said and done, and that's what you're here for like Oh my God. Should the dodgers and then the Astros? Meat. Is that going to happen again. Would they do it to them again? I mean this dodger t and we talked about this before about how seventeen eighteen nineteen like those dodger teams were nasty. This team is the best version of that Because they have mookie betts now they have dustin may you know they've they're just better and obviously you know Kenley Jansen as we mentioned earlier is he's not the same guy but they have other weapons. They have other toys to play with back there. This dodger team is the best team of those four teams of the you know since since they went to the world series and face the Astros in two, thousand, seventeen Are the baseball gods you have to. You have to bring the Astros to the highest of ledges before you push them off like it are they gonNA, learn their lesson. Are they going to feel pain? Truly if they lose to the twins in the wildcard round now they'd probably go home and be like, Hey, man sh- wasn't our year over landers hurt we don't have coal anymore just wasn't are fucking ear and if they lose in the division series to the as it's like. Those guys had our number all year, and now they're getting to a point where it's like, wow, like nobody believed in US look at what we've done so far. Now they're starting to feel pretty good about themselves. I said you house money they're playing with house money you get here look. Quite. Literally. Nobody expected you to get here because you're fucking under five hundred. Like. Listener Yeah. Will now you're here again, you walk into each game with that kind of attitude should be here. Anyway we know that we're good players. What we got oh, we won keep it rolling. Not supposed to a better to, oh, we want to get get moving and that just keeps keeps going. Just keeps going and now like you said. Almost start to forget about all the bullshit that has been surrounding you and you're able to buy into a story line that you have created. Yourself were the underdogs. Are you kidding me? It takes a special breed to be able to get to that place mentally, but you know what? You're what? That's what competitors do. That's what competitors do they find the edge and just because you might not be buying into them being the underdog because I might not like the storyline does it mean that they can't write it for themselves? It doesn't mean that that can't be the kool-aid they're passing around in that clubhouse that gets drinking. That's what's going on. And Objectively removing myself from the as in the Astros beef in the bullshit and all the shit that I talked to the guys I. I'm okay and I'm able to say. Carlos Correa. Standing, doing what he's doing by being a vocal shit talker and an attraction of the attention has almost taken the focus off. Of other things, the struggles of other guys has allowed them to start to perform and get back into their swing of things get back into their comfy spaces. And now look at what they're doing. So. It's not lost on the approach. I appreciate it. I can appreciate it. So I. I get it I, know what they're doing and. Because I might not like it or you or other baseball fans might not like that. Does it mean that they can't create that story line for themselves and show up to the ballpark the fucking favorite slash underdog in their minds. That's how you get to this point without a CY young Justin Burland or or agreed with north of five. Yeah, it is You have to respect Carlos Correa and I fucking hate him I'll double down on that. I. Hate You I don't all. I despise if you. I detest you. But there is a very small part of me watching what he's doing being like, Damn. Yeah. Pretty cool. You like Shit. Talking that Shit and then hidden I mean like it's not like he's like flicking balls over the fence to right field that are just getting eaten bombs and styling them. Yeah. Big and Borton homers. Is Not stint homers. He's an Orton homers and. Edges. He's playing the he'll roll well through a to he just needs to. He's a special kind of he'll. There's bad ass heels where they go out and they say something like that. That cuts you deep. He's the annoying. He'll where he's the guy that you get on the ground and you tell him. All right. I'M GONNA. Let you go. You better, not swing at me or it's going to be trouble. And you let them up and then he punches walk away. and. Then you turn around because you know he's GonNa Swing at you and you catch his hand in mid air and you're like We just have this conversation and then each tries to talk his way out of it. You gotta fly on your head. Yeah. You'RE GONNA fly on your head I hate I would hate to see you. Is that what you're telling me right now that's what he's doing. But he's not like a brock listener. He'll where it's like big dominant bad, ass. Scary. He's like the and I know that you're not GonNa get this. He's like the Seth rollins he'll where he's like a weasel. When, when he's talking to his shit You're not like Dan. That dues bad ass. You're like dude shot up your fucking but that's that gets the booze like so I don't want to generate the heat. You want to go out there and say things that people are going to be like Oh fuck this guy boo, and that's that's what he's doing. So he's like the whiny weasel type he'll that gets like the cheap wins like when the referee's not looking. He's doing he's he's fucking punching people in the Dick and he's he's putting his foot on the ropes and all that shit like that's the he'll that he is and I still I still respect it I do I can appreciate it I. I don't know if I respect it but I can definitely appreciate it and I. When I do appreciate is the the entertainment factor involved here? Are I'm trying to think of okay. Tombstone, you see the movie tombstone. Tombstone now, no. Okay. For the folks who might be listening to this and have seen the movie tombstone it's a fucking outstanding movie phenomenal epic epic movie. Please go watch it. There's a character in that movie name Ike Clanton. and. Clinton is everything you just described on top of everything I just described without the ability to hit the big homer like, Carlos Correa and if career wasn't hitting the big over, that's exactly who he would be. He would be the Ike Clanton of baseball. And I'm sorry you don't know that reference because it'd be like Yep if you see that movie. Clinton's a dude by the end of it that you want to crawl through the screen and fucking strangle yourself. That's him. That's Carlos. Correa. Academic Shit Up. And you have to, it's important. He's backing it up Astros going back to the LCS. Team that you most want to see against them, it would it would probably be the Yankees but which team poses the biggest threat. To the Astro. Like what what do you mean in the American league between the Yankees and the and the raise. Correct. I would say the Ray. Have more swing and miss in their pitching staff and the Astros. have struck out the least this year. and. That's that you can I were talking about and that's something I've been preaching for how long do you since you know me the play offs the postseason at bats the heightened sense of awareness guys aren't giving those ABC's away. That right there can be the difference. Do you have the ability over nine innings to generate more swing and misses which would eliminate traffic on the base path which would then eliminate runs? And if you do I like your odds and if you're going against a team that has been struck out. At, all in fact, the least amount in baseball will then I'm probably looking at a team that can generate swing and miss as one that I like a little better. So that's why I think the Tampa Bay rays pose the bigger threat. But if you're looking for an offense that's going to bludgeon. Then, the the Yankees. Think the eighties might be swabbed it can provide that but. Is there pitching staff going to be able to keep keep the opposition under two touchdowns? If. That's what they get into that kind of a dogfight. and. But here we are who do you like what do you think? In terms of which team poses the biggest threat. Yeah. The Yankees. The Yankees Kohl's going to be Cole. I don't think you're GONNA get another stinker from Tanaka like that I don't really like half against that lineup with like Bregman Carre girl like guys like that. I like the bullpen. Advantage with the bullpen. The bullpen over the stable of ninety eight stallions no no. No. I'm saying I like Yank the Yankees bullpen over the Astros Bullpen. Well, yeah but what I'm asking you, which provides the bigger threat and I could give a shit about the astros. Bullpen. Maybe like the Yankees over the Astros or the Yankees over the reasonable pin. No I don't. Know I don't. But I'm saying if if if I'm picking the Yankees, I'm going just beyond the fact, they can match like the. We're trying to win a series not a Homerun Derby I I like. Yeah. I think that the I think that the Yankees could take the astros in a in a best seven. Well. Don't matter because I'll be pulling for whoever the nevermind. Dallas Brayden has been ducking this question. We were asking him on the Stream if the Yankees play the Astros. In the American League Championship series, which team would you want to advance? which team would would you be rooting for which team you supporting and? He won't answer. He simply will. It has given non answers for the last two our. People in the streaming, like Dallas, question question. One Aska and then he just he avoids it. And you just started getting right there. Yeah we know it's tough to support a cheater and at the time I at the same time. I. As I said I've I've got certain feelings for certain individuals multiple guys on both teams? And One E hubs. Makes it very hard to even consider the Yankees as an option for success. So I'm. I'm not agreed spot as far as phantom is concerned because typically you'd like to see the team out of. Your Division. If you're not GONNA do it. You'd like to see them do it, but in this case. There's a lot of baggage. That comes with the team coming out of our division. So. I still. GonNa I'M GONNA have to marinate on for a while and I would love to be able to provide that answer answer. The question is you you want the Astros and I'll tell you why. I mean, let's not count. As I'm sure that there's like you know there's a few rays fans would probably listen to the podcast and probably like well what the fuck is why breakdown between the Yankees and the Astros and the game fives in even happened yet I I'm with you. But we're just dealing in hypotheticals right now. The reason why you want the Astros to win a Fuck cobs. Fuck. Hubs non-negotiable. Now, that's a fact. That's Daddy's and fuck ups fuck ups be. There is something to be said about the team that eliminated us. They at least went on to go to the world series maybe even win it. Ran At least we got knocked off the tracks by the World Series Champ the American League Champs. There's something to be said they're always shit will smith we've got breaking news. Will Smith Five I is player in dodgers history. To record five hits in a postseason. Game It's crazy good for well small this story all about. And then see. Do you because. It was this way with Yankees and the Red Sox. But do you think that there's anything to be said about if the Astros? The Astros go on to win the American League pennant or the world series that it it would motivate the as to be like. All right we need to. We need to actually spend a little bit here. Depends on what that postseason format looks like. So, if you think that they're sixteen teams again, next year that it doesn't really motivate the as to try harder, kick your feet up and get used to this, and that's not a comment that I'm making in response to what the as do that as a comment in response to what I believe any team that you might consider to be in the same boat, the Oakland, a.'s financially, and how they spend that that would be the collective approach is there is no pressing need. To spend any agreed just amount of money on a free agent. Who at the end of the day represents one player and at this point in time Whether it's twelve starts next year because it's a covert season or it's thirty-three starts because it's a regular season that's still one player vs a Pitcher, and it's still only one guy in the lineup and if. We got to the postseason last year with this group. We could probably find is who performed similarly to this if we're not just bringing back everybody the same. And we could be in the same spot. Next year. And if that's the. You, show me. Where paying a free agent? Becomes a priority. Is is getting sad. Twelve to three, it's an absolute boat race cody bellinger May as well have just walked into third base on that triple. Twelve three. Damn. Not The way, this season was supposed to end for the padres. This is not how it was supposed to end. Nas to like that at. All right. That does it for this episode? Of starring nine. Thoughts. Filed thoughts. I don't know I don't know that I have many final thoughts I got into a tweet beef of Lance mccullers. He deleted his account and then the astros advance so he brought it back. Yeah what? Does student. Gore. No. I. Don't want to do this, but we're we're we're here. We're here. On. Your backup. Catcher. I'm a washed up broke down never was losing record. You're you're talking to. Give a fuck first of all second of all. Your you realize the video that I posted was the video that was posted was a was a cameo that was provided for a group of people to be able to use. Ever their team happened to be the as beat another team. So just doing the math realizing win the game ended. And realizing when Dustin Garneau decides to tweet at me. Quote tweet that video about how that does an age well, if we're being technical it age very well. Because the as did beat you at times and you probably saw that video, which is why you had it on deck ready to fire off literally minutes after your team in the players who play in those games won the division series. So that was on your radar that video had made it into your circle and shout out to the folks who were able to get that to you. They did their job. I don't know why you're coming at me man, what did I do to you personally. Don't even know you never even see play I mean your on the roster and Shit but I've never seen you play like I. Know You so I don't know if it was personal between you and I if it was. I could give a fuck sorry that you heard about something not sure what it was But yeah, you're right. My postseason numbers I. A strong as yours and the problem with that is. You have been there. You've had that opportunity. I had the opportunity to get there and that didn't work out. You're right. But for you having had had been there and those numbers to look like Jer knows my short term memory very poor but zeros very easy to remember. So recalling your presence though difficult physically. Numerically. It was very easy to remember your impact. So. took it up in, sit close to the end of that Bench Dustin Guard Ellen fire up another tweet and how that in the drafts. 'cause you can get to that in five minutes because the only place you've been sitting this entire fucking series is right next to the clubhouse door. Because you're a fucking waterboy. This begs the question. Dallas. is starting nine like singlehandedly ruining the psyche of the Houston Astros called. God I what the fuck. Are you serious like A. Cameo gets quote tweeted this guy. Five minutes after like I promise you whoever was giving the on field interview for the Astros was still on the field giving that interview and Garneau wants to fire off that too. Like he was waiting to get to the fuck and phone to send that out I mean come on man come on. You're right. You see a guy who buckles and deletes his account and then fires it back up after the fact. Like. Yeah Man. He came at me again. Land. Lance mccullers. Tag. I didn't even say his name I didn't I wasn't even talking about him. I say his name I didn't tag him He came at me and return fire deleted account and then the Astros. Move on to the American League Championship series, and then he fires it right back and I hate I hate this even happened with not do because Dude I, love grubs I love me a backup catcher like that's you on going to lunch with taking to the bar with every night. That's who my wingman is. That's who the writer is. That's the Guy I'm taking care of I know the plight this dude is on. I don't want to talk that Shit I would never WanNa Talk Shit about a guy in his baseball on production and Blah Blah Blah I'm not that dude. I mean come on I. I can't try to shove it up your team's asked now. And somebody threw out a tweet which is fucking hilarious and it's probably true. The reason his post these numbers are not great is because he didn't get to face me. I'm with you. I like that I respect that it's funny. So I don't know remember Cameo. People pay you to say things. So if you've taken offense to something that somebody paid need to say so that they could distribute and you thought that that was personally bought and paid for and recorded. For Dustin Garneau. That's not what that was. But here we are. I guess I'll see in Philly for the LIVESTREAM I. I can't wait I don't have take it yet. I don't have a ticket on a hotel. I, mean like how long is it GonNa take me to get to Philly from here. We're not walking. A few hours, right drain. Is that a flight. Is that a flight thing? I don't know I don't know I I don't know what to expect So I'm going to figure that out tomorrow maybe I'm there maybe I'm not I don't know but we're going to try. And If it works great CNN Philly. If not, we'll be right back on the Stream Dallas and I and We'll be back next week with episode two a three to break down the AILSA s and the NFL. That'll be a good one. So stay tuned for that Joya weekend have fun watching game five and we'll catch you right back here next week for some more fucking postseason baseball.

The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz

Local Hour: Ray Durham

"The Dan Le Batard Woodstock Gotcha podcast is brought to you by the capital one's ever card or four percent cashback on dining and entertainment do percent grocery stores of one percent on all of the purchases now when you go out you can't Jim what's in your wallet terms of plot. It's the shipping container frequent with you on a Friday now. I've been saying for a couple of weeks now that this cowboys game is a trap game for them and the dolphins actually have a chance to compete in this game first half and I kind of think the whole game but if you're betting it I definitely think you can nail the first half but I think in general the dolphins cover this Sunday there. I said it but there have been a few wrinkles thrown in here that could make this a little different won. The rose was in is apparently starting the dolphins have officially said it yes the Rosena sorting. Yes Oh Rosen the Rosen one. That's what we call them now. This is a podcast over time you're hearing this he might be officially tamed starter but we're doing this in the morning and he's not being officially named but everyone's reporting it so he definitely is gonNA probably be starting who's starting right definitely probably right but they haven't said it. It's just all the Repu starting right so and the other one is drew. BREES is injured and the reason that this was a trap game is because the cowboys play in Primetime against the saints next week. Oh the correze being out but it still primetime game. I think they're still going to be up for it so I still think it's a trap game. I'm just saying there's a few wrinkles. I am so excited to see what Sean Payton does with his quarterbacks at Seattle. That's I think it's a really fun Sunday slate of games that game to me because they're already talking that we don't have a true replacement for drew brees. We're going to go CO quarterbacks and people love them. Some tatum hill people them some guy and he's got. He's got a lot of Tibo right. Oh Yeah Yeah and the the versatility I think they're going to do all sorts of wacky things with him. I'm I'm taking saints plus four and a half. I just want action on this Kooky little game. You should put it on the poll at Lebatardshow do you put action on Games aims just so that you can watch Kooky little games like the one with the saints that you wouldn't normally watch unless brees was playing speaking of action. Everyone's talking about out to you know Gardiner minhsiu arriving solid game from him. I went to bed with five minutes left in that game plan Leonard Fournette and fantasy and I was cruise cruise. I'm sorry I don't know what happened. I just went to the box score. All you had sixty six total rushing yards in a long of sixty nine nights. I don't know like how that run happened. That's what happened. He had a long run. I was all cocky and going to bed and talking so much shit and came back to buy me but Joe Buck the whole night was just like Wolf Wolf this game for four net and then he had that rods like all right his nights better definitely adamant fantasy but did you guys see the two lane Houston game. That was the football all game night so the score thirty eight thirty one to lane what happened they came all the way back they were down like three scores to was favored by four and a half points. They're in a tight a game. They have the ball at their own thirty five forty and they're about to take a knee sending this game to overtime against Houston fake news fake knee eh they run that fake news about fifteen yards to get them around midfield and very next play pass down the middle of the field to about the twenty yard line bad tackling dude dude scoots into the end zone to lane win and cover it when it's four and a half there was like three guys that should have tackled. That wasn't just one guy that MRS tackle it was like how much time oh on that probably they ran the fake news with like you know thirteen seconds left by the time the guy went out of bounds shitting me that is an all time bad beat gatty buddy who had Houston plus four imagine you probably go into the bathroom when you see two lane lineup to take a knee at their own like just dreading losing in overtime one of those overtime vets where you've got got the game the whole game you bet used and you felt good about it and then you lose because six points in overtime yeah they were they were Houston was indeed three scores at one time so you I thought you were cruising that entire game at the very least like okay. Let me settle in. We're going to go to overtime here. Whatever there's still a chance he can cover with overtime roles but I'm in for the long on call fake Ne- next pass touchdown three missed tackles too late? There's the fake never work. I know Marino did the fake spike has the fake knee ever worked with thought about the fake knee. No one's actually done the fake any that I've seen oh I have seen people like gather up for and the quarterback just sneaks it but this was full on play. Hey we're dude had nice blocking bounce it to the outside and then the very next play no tackling it was a crazy finish and it should be the only football game people talk about. I'm good on the officials not to blow the whistle because I feel like if you see that step formation you're like I just WanNa get ready to you. Know what you gotTA. Do you know what you gotTa do in that situation. Someone needs to talk to an official yeah we're planning on doing. This actually probably did happen. Yeah I guarantee you. They talked to official man up all hooker that Mike Making a guarantee on the Houston about about the issue I promise you someone said something of an official Haywar running fake me here. Don't be fooled. Was it to lane or Tulsa. I always get the two lane with BUTYL uniforms Ormes. You see the waiver. Just bring it on the uniform front fake Ni four and a half. I wish I had actually I just didn't take any action Lhasa. How how? How much were you hurting? If you watch that jags titans game because of reasons like Mike you've got someone in fantasy or if you got you got an over bet and and you got to watch that crap all night where the jags fourteen nothing and you know what that point this game is over the game is finished. Mariota can't stay healthy for two consecutive touchdown drives like that's not going to happen so you know it's over you got that score with four minutes left in the first quarter and the rest of the way you get to more you get you know you get six points on Jacksonville side and one point six seven points on the Tennessee side. This comes courtesy save at NFL Research Marcus Mariota has been sacked seventeen times through the first three weeks of the season. That's most single quarterback has been sacked through week three since two thousand in in two and David Carr and Marcus Mariota is one of the more mobile quarterbacks. We've seen I'm telling you he got out of several sax last night. Every time nine that do dropped back to pass the line. Got Absolutely Nucleus Campbell started the season soil was a man last night or that guy that guy Chris for some reason came in here yesterday in which just saying to me out of nowhere there was no there was no segue Christie said. Do you know how big callejas Campbell is because I did make the mistake of thinking of him. As the defensive end he was at the University of Miami when he was also very tall but hadn't grown into his body and and so yesterday I made a point that Aaron Donald was more menacing not as a player but just as a physical human being and Chris comes in here and says he's six seven three three hundred Dan how basics don't short the monster at university Miami he was one of these like agile quick guys and since then his arms have grown into tree trunks. He is a terrifying terrifying man. Did you know Aaron Donald. I think has gone this last five games without a sack pressures has a league figured it out or is it just a random occurrence find out Sunday night football. It's everyone throwing it within a half a second of the snap in order to avoid the fact that he's urinating on on their center yet there was something to watch from last night's. NFL game if you were a dolphin fan I saw Armando tweet about this. The dolphins are apparently in on having conversations about Jalen Ramsey really yeah. What does that do for you because yes I know the plan is to tank and acquire assets? That's a damn good asset. This is one of the elite corners the League. You'RE NOT GONNA be guaranteed to draft a player that good right Oh but mike that seems a super shortsighted where he's good look. I'm not saying I'm not saying he's not excellent and I'm not saying he's not still in his prime and may even get better. I'm saying that's about to be a weighty weighty Wadey contract and they just got rid of minkah Fitzpatrick. I don't know how good Minka was or wasn't I don't know what their evaluation Minka was or wasn't but the steelers think he's good enough and valuable enough at that contract it would've made sense to keep Minka more than it would have made sense to trade for Jalen Ramsey. You think I'm wrong about that. No now I know actually do think you're wrong about that. Jalen Ramsey is on a different stratosphere. We know what he does really well. We still haven't figured out what making Fitzpatrick does really well except be versatile and he himself itself doesn't want to be versatile in fact. They're putting him at safety. I've read from reports sealers camp. which is what he doesn't want to do? The dolphins have an insane amount of money to suspend. I know that they just signed exerting our to the highest cornerback deal and whatever Jalen Ramsey gets. It's got to be higher than Xavien Howard. You got money to spend hell. I have read reports. Mary Kay Cabinet reported that the browns are in on Jalen Ramsey and you look at the browns roster and like how do they have the money but it's not just money money and huge assets for a team. That's going going nowhere that you're probably going to waste his next year. Well what's reported as an acid is. They're obviously looking for a first round draft pick. They're looking for too. Yeah we'll see about that's the thing if it's it's the dolphins or just enquiring and willing to give one of these first round picks. I'm willing but one of those first round picks and then sign with all that cap space yeah. I'm good. He's he's got some power here just like clowning did though if he wants to stay in the state of Florida because he could just say I'm not signing an extension. I'm not if you trade these assets for me. it can only be contingent contingent on me signing an extension. It's the way the football players are trying to grab at that basketball power yeah that would be his leverage in this situation. I I certainly think it's conversation tation worth having if it if it caused you just one of your first round draft picks because the chances are you're not going to get someone as good as Jalen Ramsey what that first traffic this is an elite guy someone that is considered the best at his position. You absolutely give up a first round draft. Pick on that. You've got a first round draft. Pick for MINKAH Fitzpatrick. He's worth what stinks though is that we've scene corners. They don't have a lot like their window is very tight so you don't know when Jalen Ramsey's and you know. How many more years does he have? You Lee ones have have Richard. Sherman Ervin was what he was a leap for like Richard Bounceback Daryl Rivas was good for what eight years up until like post thirty Joe Haden still in the the league and he was a guy that was a good first round draft pick now I think and they don't have the same sort of wear and tear. Dan mentioned that they don't have the the injuries the further away they line up from the ball they actually deal with more fractured fractures because their bodies are a little bit slender but if no one's Tony how many tackles are you making. Let me ask you this question. You made wary at all when you look at the teams involved all of them feel like they're a Jalen Ramsey away right so the dolphins doing it. There are no teams never mind that there are no teams like the dolphins in the entire. NFL there no middling teams that are trying trying to get in on Jalen Ramsey my wrong about this. Is it just I thought it was only got the Baltimore's the Kansas City's teams that we know are close. I don't know the teams teams that are really in on him. You see all the contenders but I I would actually be encouraged by the dolphins having this conversation because it would send a sign like okay. They're planning on turning turning this around next to James. He's actually gonNA help you win. Games a series of good player to have on your Osserman teams are have obviously been thrown on the Miami Dolphins this year Erin that the secondary is supposed to be the strength of this team. It certainly gets bolstered by the likes of Jalen Ramsey. I think then you just we had this conversation where two A is entering. He doesn't have the Kyla Murray. I'll play baseball leverage but he does have some level of leverage here by saying I can go back to school or I don't Wanna be either understanding how much the dolphins want him. Rich Eisen was quoted as saying he her two drafts ago that the Miami Dolphins had their eyes set onto a so you bring an Jalen Ramsey you make this even more appealing for the likes of tour and other free agents that could help make this even more attractive. I saw on Dave Hyde wrote an article. I'm sorry it was not David was Joe Shad. He wrote an article about all the potential free agents that the dolphins could bring in and there's some good names on this list. He also mentioned Joe Jalen right away. You're talking about yeah you could also take the chance at Jalen Ramsey gets ready to a place that he's not interested in signing the extension. I'm sure the Miami Dolphins are already well. I'm sure the dolphins is are already having the conversations Jalen Ramsey's agent as probably all these teams because I want to know if they're giving up a first round pick if they can at least keep the player but there is a chance of Jalen Alan Ramsey walks in the off season. They can get them for just the cat. I have to say I've been kind of like all right. I mean on the tank but this season isn't really doing much for me as a dolphins fan even though I'm supporting according to tank but I'm just like man. This is going to be terrible season. I did have something rush over me the other day where I'm like. I'm excited for this draft coming up. I know it's a long way away. Oh Dolphins. Hey game this season about watching college football identifying. We're in week three so that's what that's why we're rat Dan so that's exciting. Come on guys. I take it here. It's been that this with a real football. Team is listening to this in week three hearing a sports radio host with a microphone saying. I'm excited for the April drive. You're going to find out if Chris greer's. GM In this league I think he is GM. We're GONNA find out if he's really GM. We were talking about. What if you find out he's not everyone and we were doing this off the air yesterday because I was curious to know the the Cleveland browns when they were supposedly -taying king were acquiring a bunch of additional picks when they were passing on the likes of Carson Wentz and I wanted to say okay so what did those extra first around traffic's at I got myself all excited for turn out to be and it was like Corey Coleman Sean Coleman another do was excited about that draft I was I was like I'm I'm not a North Dakota who plays the Coda? This guy can't be good. Let's get more pick so the next draft can have three of these and there were two Coleman's like out of the League right now so careful what you wish for does it you gotta hit on these picks and there's a lot more variance in that league when it got to the draft picks in any other we've got a lot of at bats. We need to get a hit. We got a lot of at bats. It's all say thrown sport man.

Johnny got a tweet golf set when he was three and from that day on he was hooked all he wanted to do was Gulf Gulf Gulf. He'd be on links before school after schools all he ever wanted was to go pro and then one day when he was holding his grandson and thinking about his twelve handicap Johnny realized it just might not happen for him but you know what did happen for him. He switch to Geico and saved a bunch of money on car insurance. It's so that was good and so was hanging out with his grandson. It's the lower on a Friday and you know we did an opening segment there and we talked about a lot of local sports news but we miss out on the headline. That was one big sports story last night that we absolutely need to get to donny baseball is back. Don Mattingly left earned earned an extension with the Miami Marlins as Roy said he never left but he's guarantee coming back because he's done such a great job with this club Billy Gill are you excited jumping for joy every now dinesh baseball. How long is the deal? I don't think it's come out yet right. I think it's reported to be like two years. As what I saw I would say the two years. Is there window like for how long they expect this rebuild to take right like maybe they think that they're two years away and he'll get one year of the new team and what they think will be good and then if it doesn't work out because why would you. I don't understand this at all like fire him like this is it honestly doesn't it's on firing him. If his contract comes to an end just letting him that's true. I I've go- honestly who cares always lost two two hundred games in two seasons like what right who's going to do better who's GonNa do right. I've I've always thought he's fine. When you watch the game see you know he's not he's not a bad manager and and he has no talent right now so he can't really be to blame for this so lets you know what the hell like? What the hell else are you going to do? He's approaching I especially with this extension is is he approaching the most tenured status yeah and he has the most wins the marlins manager no yeah he already has the most wins as managers last six games here I would have thought mckeon lasted a little bit and then he came back now. mckeon I think was like two years or something three years and then he came. What are we talking longest tenured with the marlins longest tenured with two years also before that it was Freddy Gonzalez Fredi Gonzalez the all time that makes sense yeah? I was here for a while. I would say Rene also probably there. I think we're really laxman. Only like the first two seasons. John Bull feels like a lifetime here though bill that's shocking that that they sign this extension because I didn't think don mattingly whenever he was asked about. It didn't really seem like he was crazy about the idea of saying here either. It's not like I want to be here. I don mattingly honestly has a ton of suitors. What did he do at the dodgers? I don't WANNA I don't WanNa be the guy that's like pooping on Don Mattingly today but like he had really talented team with the dodgers and didn't really do anything Dave Roberts came in the next year and took him to the world series. Basically it's been in the playoffs. He feels to me like one of these life or managers. That'll end up managing aging like six hall of fame or something like that yeah well. We're celebrating. Bruce Bozize's two thousand win well. Why don't we celebrate two thousand loss like three weeks ago? So you seem upset by this. It doesn't make a difference whoever they have in there like Don Mattingley not don mattingly like if they're not improving moving the product on the field what differences make who the manager is well row fat AS Roma's roses. Get an extension yeah so like you're finally you're finally keeping even the nucleus together instead of selling off parts. You're saying we're keeping some people around here because the rebuild has already also to your extension though yeah you you don't think this is over by next year. Yeah I think they're going to go from losing a hundred and five games to making the play so how is Derek jeter go to sell two more years of this this crap to people I don't know I don't know what they're gonNA do. When's the next time he's supposed to speak to the media? We demand answers. What answers did you honestly honestly? There are some answers he could give you that he could hold up as wins. He's like okay we got. Jj who looks like he can be everything we want him to be down. The right one based off of is good as he could possibly be. Let's see so far. How is he actually doing like he can't go to the majors like in the first two months of like Aquino what what a what could he have done more to impress you? Jj blood at this point nothing jesuit. He can't do anything to impress me this point. He's been in the system for like two months right but he looks like if you've seen him hitting. This dude looks like he's going to be a good hitter. This guy looks legit. I mean it's two months of lower minor league baseball right and but in college he was good dude. I all I can do is look at what he's doing doing like a magic power. You seem bummed. How can we how can we turn this around? Is there anything at all that you can get excited about because I feel like you've you've had some peaks and Valleys Valley's. You're in a one point. That's Marlin season. You're a little bit more positive than you are right now. You're very negative. You were sitting in ninety nine losses last year they had ninety nine losses and they had a game cancelled which stop them from losing one hundred games. I don't know the pitching is good. I mean maybe we'll turn the corner with the pitching. Let's see if they they make acquisitions or if they I mean. Do you think that they're going to add pieces to the team because I don't know though I gotTa Start Right. I don't know I feel like they might be like go through one one more year of just showing off. I'll say no not selling. I don't know if they're at the point where it's like. We're a few pieces away like I would say. Maybe at this time time next year. Maybe a little earlier next year. What point do you start? Getting pieces is kind of a waste. WHO's a left on the roster? That's probably like okay. We maximize what we can get. that let's sell off right now so we can get some value back Dr Caleb Smith. He's probably at that point in his career where he might not be a part of this. I don't know these planes going for. I mean I could see them adding some pieces this off season if they think that a lot of their young guys are you know in the next year so we're going to really take the step like now cantatas like I know he was an all star this year but but even more. I don't know it's tough. It's a tough thing to do because you want to wait until the last possible second to add those big pieces because then you get more time with them so it's so you need pieces pieces right as a thing like we need pieces right to build right with. We need like stars or someone to lie so these prospects can the accident instead is host ballooning Megobroba has is the team leader and he's a good clubhouse guy from all reports. Do you think the go row houses is someone that would-be starting on a playoff team I mean no. I think Miguel row houses like so it's nice that he was signed to an extension. It's nice that they have like the leader in their clubhouse coming back for two more years right to help the young guys but like at a certain point you need more than just good clubhouse people. I'm trying to think of the positions that they I don't really have a good prospect coming like you know what I mean like. They're not going to go out and sign a big catcher because they think El Faro. Is there catchable different coming off right and you know they're not. I can assign a corner guy because you got Brian Anderson so it's like I don't i. I think Brian Anderson's the first guy that they'll lock up next behind me go. I was like an actual guy. They're gonNA give some see I'm not saying he's going to get like hundreds of millions of dollars or anybody on here. That gets a sweetheart like yellow steel. That's young that we lock up or that's what I would have said. We that's the kind of delighted I would have thought Brian Interesting would've gotten this year or maybe like coming up but you know he's actually been decent so roy took Claire to play baseball yesterday I did during the weekend I just took it to a park in through the baseball around and it was Nice Day. You can catch catch it but she's wondering how to throw now righty all righty well. She chose to be ready. S With my daughter. I've already been convinced throwing wise. She's ready because she cannot throw their left hand or are you teaching teaching her the underhand throwing motion or you know not really teaching her out of Dodi just gave ball and she picked it up over hammering motion that's going on. He thinks she can play Major League baseball like maybe this is a regular monet. Davis players throw base. I'm just saying like softball player off your hand. I I don't know if she's a pitcher and you know. Generally boys play baseball girls play softball over. Here's throw throw from the outfield base. We have a softball Dow's big for her to pick up with one hand so you're working your way up. How do you find out if your kid is right handed or left handed? That seems like one one of those things. It's just difficult learned. I don't know I don't think so I just decided to let her choose and she used to be more dominant with her. No she would throw with her right but then I put the ball in her left hand just like this and let's see what you got and like you can tell why shows goes to the right like she's feeling and more with the right. Maybe she could use both hands. That's that's determined to be. I remember getting so mad at Lewis Cassia when he was like a switch hitter but he was so much better from power is the right Blake and you always thought like a guy right handed every time sixty two home runs yeah yeah. Let's break a home wrecker to like I did from the right side Yup I his swing always looked so ugly from the left side like he was trying to be a switch and I'm like you're not and you know he was a switch hitter or just because he lined up on both sides but he was so much better from the percentage wise says a lot better from the average wise one hundred percent Mike. It's just power. You're you're not wrong on that yeah. It's every time it but just looking at pop I would say this is before I got into stats and I was just at the game I thought Damian easily was the greatest hair because due to come in as a pinch hitter Mike that was this guy's average like two four. I had this guy's average must be a time with you on having dame easily phase where it's like. Bring this guy into hit. He Oh you got hurt the season. He was rebound from this injury to Damian easily. He's so important what we're doing. Billy Damian easily like did not he was was on a also did not have enough radio phase which everyone was easily was the shit easily was so great. I think my my my not got distaste. I would say but my lack of radio messages phase had to do with how much Tommy Hutton was telling me how much of a professional hit or like every single time. I know that that doesn't make me popular at all but I I was just say I wasn't crying when Tommy Hutton and the marlins split up Tommy hunting's been did he just call a game yeah he's back. He's doing pre-game stuff yeah so nice little rotating cast for the pre-game Tommy Hutton who's good Sanchez. I just I just he was like the very like he was viewed as like the Anti Marlins guy and I viewed him as like to to pro Marlin which is like crazy because he was like oh my God this guy's always and I'm like man. Stop telling me that all these scrubs are great. They're not great. I'm watching the same game you are just because you played for. The PHILLY's doesn't mean that you know that these people. I'm watching the same game you are. I'm watching them strike out on four pitches. Don't tell me this is a professional at bat because he drew the count of four pitches like that's absurd. He struck out. I don't need to hear about how professional this a bad isn't. He lost all credibility when he started taking shots at Damien Easley. Who is the greatest took shots at create Craig? No you did Chris. You're with me on easily. I'm with trying to find you hurt his ankle in a totally new season I had like a mini season plan CIOPPINO also no. I never liked Robert Indiana and never felt for that end enough stuff never. Did you like Indiana. No I felt bad for dino when he hit a walk off home run that I just remember the story and I'm sure we've talked about this already a couple of times. We're also trying to make they were trying to Megan Dino happen and Chris Akilah like get a moreland saying ain't gonNA stop trying to make Chris Keila happen. It's not going to happen yeah. Eddie Foxx saying names talking about the young guys that there were like Oh. We did this Miguel Cabrera so we can do this with anybody can't no you can't you can't Chris has not Miguel Cabrera. Stop It. Stop at critical action seeking anyone whenever thought Chris the deal is going to be McCoy gave him like so many chances my this guy. This guy's never done anything gala Michael Tahara the picture you you know who who who else was the guy they were trying to make happen for a very long time at then end up working out Jason Bargains who's still in the League who was an all sewer tunnels also yeah yeah. It looks like like a founding father I think he cut his hair. Maybe he good needed to Chris Chris. Gil I would get so mad watching Christina play. He was one of the more frustrating Marlins so congrats on baseball I guess is that what this was. I guess I don't I don't know what was the Marlins man. We did our best segment I mean what we've done our best Alaska last by the way last. I'm GonNa go this weekend. It's the last last the fans fan appreciation day. It's like Asian weekend jerseys off our back you know. How did they select those people? I guess it's just season ticket holders. They used to have on the last day of the season. They used to do like a cool thing where like they would actually take and throw like hats and balls and like basically basically all of their stuff they just get rid of and throw it into the crowd and t shirts and all that stuff and the last couple of years I've gone last and I haven't noticed as much of that. I I one time as a sixteen or seventeen year old. I was at the last game of the season sitting right behind the dugout. I don't know how I got the seats. I think it was like it from my mom's work or something or no. No no no I actually had the seats and and Lenny Harris my guy. I loved him all time. I loved Leni hair every player not Damian easily but what are you talking about. Lenny hair should be a hall of Famer because as a pitcher to take on specialists being hall of fame yeah is they should be in. I mean the the thing you were claiming for Damian easily though is what Lenny Harris was the best of all time top takes obvious hat throws it up into the crowd. I catch it but a cast like this part of the hat and there's like this big guy next to me like grab like the bill of the hat and like wrestled it out of my a hand it in my head. I'm like dude like I'm a kid like what what are you. What are you going to do at Lenny hairs sweaty? Had what did you do with it. I didn't get it. The guy took it from me. That's that's what I'm saying. I never know when you first said this. Some old guy took it from you yeah. Those are the worst like seventy at that point game on my Grossberg. That's on the audience. It's on the audience to chant at that guy. Give it to the K. Now I would have been jit happens sometimes times what a jit is no. That's like fundamentally might amy good. It's just like a little rascal rascal troublemaker anchor kiss. I did you grow up in Miami and not know the turn is just going to tell you that that word is offensive to me so when you when you first mentioned would never use it again. This is the last homestand I said to myself. Oh you found out I've heard before but I don't use it f a family days on Sunday also bobbleheads in short for something. I don't know why wait is this actually offensive board. Jitterbug is something Jitterbug your bug Roy we should bring the little ones to last marlins game on Sunday and let them run the basis of ood Sunday Sunday. I changed my mind. Never Mind Wow football Yvonne man. I gotTa Watch you. Have someone said Sunday. So what are you doing on Sunday Church yeah hey come after well. It's going to be up to four once. Uh Literally is a game later on Sunday. I feel like it's a one but I remember them doing a thing. We're all the games so time to the Dolphin time they won. The dolphins probably play at one so the marlins are going to try to go head to head. I feel like it should be like a five. They should offer to have the game on on the jumbotron. During base will be who it won't be not on the jumbotron but it'll be at the Budweiser bar is a question I remember he playoff games. We're always on on the Budweiser bar. That'd be smart of them. You think a lot of people are like clamoring to watch the dolphins at chose to go to a marlins choice. There might be realized right. I mean I think if you're supporting the MARLINS and going to a marlins game then you're probably sticking it out with the dolphins as well yeah it'd be weird if if they read the Marlins game showing support and be like Nope I will not accept this from the show like all the people that are positive about their teams. Just WanNa see their team's win and are sticking through it through tough sir. I'm saying it's just weird to decide on a Sunday. I'M GONNA go to a Marlins game and wha- but then watch the dolphins on TV and the entire game yeah all right yeah I'm with Theon that which is why I'm not going to go container frigging with you on Friday freaking freaking with you on a Friday so much energy right now. It's back down Roy. Give me a hug. No I'm giving Roy Hudd. Ask Ashdown. Oh what are his weekend. Anyone guests in your guts. Weaken Lund up the hurricanes Miami Hurricanes Against Central Michigan. I'll be going not really much. We can talk about their because mcelwain revenge going out out. You're out when we talk. No I heard it I heard baby shark jaws either way. It's cute T- Boudin that song he knows revenge game because he he comes from mm Central Michigan so I don't think you'll be afraid to hang some points up on. Here's what I want to see out of this game. Let's have Jeremy Williams outside the numbers go deep. He's Walter. He's been and attacking the middle of the field and he's been incredibly accurate almost historically accurate. He's completing then littlefield. He's complaining eighty percent of his passes. I think he threw the ball beyond twenty yards six times against Thune Cookman. You WanNa see it even more against within Cookman. I'd like to see that growth continue because I don't want this to be Chad Pennington in type. I think he's too good to just be like this little twenty yard and in Guy I got a game we could play. It's called fill in the blank jaren Aaron Williams at work all right. I'm GONNA SPLIT Jaren. Williams is the best. Um quarterback since blank and fill in the blank yeah now. I think it's just the bait here like. Are we going back like the farther we go back the more impressive he seems I would say also been the quarterback for three games. We'll take Roy. Roy Has the answer on the head. I think bright Berlin probably brock. Berlin was good brand was awesome really properly. The problem with Brock Berlin was he wasn't Ken Dorsey. He had a follow that act and he lost some games. You know Ken Dorsey didn't really lose games but Brock Berlin undefeated in the state of Florida Lord always beat you f always beat. FSU showed up in bowl games. Brock Berlin was a really good quarterback for the University of Miami had some really great moments on here and we were probably in retrospect way way too hard on him so easily best quarterback since Brock Berlin. I'm a card carrying member of the Stephen Morris Hive Stephen Morris was let down by his coach is is and he got injured at the wrong time. Some people might argue to Corey Harris first year his first year here with a University of Miami program and Mark whipple's offense was pretty good. Edwin Williams appears to have the goods dude yeah he germ Williams has been really good. He's just very conservative. I don't know how much of that is him. And how much is the offense. It's a combination of the two I we have a guy like Jeff. Thomas WHO's a weapon on the outside a burner a game-breaker a guy even leak rosier who who is inaccurate as all health and ways to get him the ball deep. I like to see us get the ball at the Geoff Thomas deep down the field and that's what I want to see out of the Central Michigan game also Lorenzo Canceling Guard. He's been explosive. He was a five star highly touted running back played very little last year. Dealt with injuries been dealing with injuries all year all throughout camp. He's apparently going to finally play at running back. Miami's a very good very good death that running back position and I'm excited to see what lingard can do for this team. You guys done talking about sports. I was actually saying yes. I was actually just looking at the screen. What's up with three ANA she? She's done with music fashion stuff all sorts of talk that issue reason she's pregnant too. That's another thing I don't. I don't think she's pregnant but this this is good for her brand because it keeps her in the news cycle because she hasn't really released musically. She's in the news cycle. She has a lingerie line and they had a yeah and they well. I think it's savage acts is makeup. Yes answer the question pretending like he doesn't know what he's not the biggest fan I don't by makeup so basically she's taking a couple of years to work on other things and possibly be praying well like she put her lingerie line had like big fashion show. I don't know if you guys are aware that Victoria's secret fashion show was canceled this year which is yeah why story I was in. I don't work for Google this. The Victoria's secret fashion show was cancelled and Ranas lingerie line had like a big fashion show that was more like concert entertainment show in like fashion show. It was like an all inclusive thing like her. Lingerie line is like all sizes so it's viewed as more like inclusive which I think was part of the Victoria secret deals. They've just like you know typical tall skinny models and the aired last night on Amazon prime. I didn't see it that the Riano one supposedly it was like a great show like not just for the fashion but just like the whole experience. It was like a whole `nother level. I just wanted another umbrella like it's been awhile since we they had an umbrella and we need an umbrella Roy hearing Lee apparently models are demanding that Victoria secret does more to stand up to model abuse use and they weren't happy with the result and there's all sorts of controversy following it and I guess everyone just decided we'll take a year off eating the I do you think it couldn't find models Victoria's secrets. I guess it was probably it was probably in their best interests to just like stay under the radar this year dealing with bad press yeah because yeah because actually having the show what might might bring some of these bad things to light right so it's probably a good public relations decision. We're asking me you're gonNA say something. I was just Furiana guy are you. Are you like really hoping for another umbrella like me. I did not like a umbrella rela. I thought the song was annoying like the original umbrella brenna was annoying death row. We're talking about the song to Banger. I thought it was annoying. Why I just like the song what was annoying a yeah? What was the original brilliant Joni Mitchell yeah yeah so what was technically a cover really? Does that a lot. I need to listen to this original. I don't believe you you don't you don't I believe it's a I've always wondered look. She's certainly entitled to take a break from certainly touring and like it's stress putting out albums for a record label but Riyan is man okay. I'm going to be careful here. I'd be you're the one I was GONNA say. There was someone in here that's had to take. She's not a good singer. Oh no no no. I don't and I don't have that take. I actually happened to likely on the songs and I think she's probably one of the more celebrated female artists in the history of music. She puts out bangers but she doesn't. I'm not a very hard worker. When it comes to the process producers bring beat writers song? She just punt punches it out and like the recording process for her. It doesn't take very along. It's not beyond heavily involved not to make this beyond say because I hate it when people pit people against each other. I'm just holding this up. As an example beyond as thoroughly involved involved in the writing process is she rents out like all these cabanas and has each individual writer holed up in a Cabana and she spends like hours of her day dedicated each one in when she collaborates with these writers and producers while beyond say has more acclaimed albums and all that stuff which is which is a recent thing because honestly up until emanate beyond say did not have the catalog right as a solo artist at least the demand like the adoration that she got what is what is more valuable and what do people want more warn that like you being in charge of all the creative stuff and you know albums that people think the whole album you gotta listen to the whole thing. It's a beautiful album or just bangers. Korea like Enron has just like certified banger up your argument that she said Moore Bangers than beyond. I think they're AH I get up more for Riana songs. I think they're more fun and for that type of music. That's what I like but beyond lemonade is one of my favorite albums of all time so so beyond. Hey is probably the better artist but that's not a knock on Rana. I really enjoy his music. When I had an ipod it was heavily populated by Riana and being in charge of your own images vastly important which is why beyonce has as much money as it does now is worth two hundred million dollars? That's the author well. I think any you know she hears a song that song I it doesn't fit my brand. She's making decisions about her image. But you know not in writing I I've I've read about it and it doesn't seem like Riana in terms of artistic direction is like as heavily involved with some of the other artists over over time and there's no market sternly working for in terms of like chart topping success it like she was just like to her people at the very beginning. How do I make the most money? What do we do? Oh I don't think it was at the very beginning but it was shortly after linking up with ROC nation and Jay Z who featured on umbrella and it took it's why the Ronin beyond say thing they're so tied together because of the Jay Z. aspect to that and they're just powerful black females and we'd like to do that as people just like pit people against each other. It's why Nikki massage is out here. You're retiring now by the way I WANNA get into it but some very interesting Cardi B. News. That's directly tied to the Takashi Sixty nine snitching thing that's going on. Leave it at that man follow that that's a wild ride. Let's get calls all right. Let's go to we'll start off with Wade Wade. You're on the air I I might I just wanted to start off by apologizing because I called last or this past Tuesday and I had fallen asleep before the call and my phone line was really bad so you guys rightfully hung up on me so I just went to projects that I but when I wanted to talk about was your mystery RECR- episode because that's actually what I wanted to talk about on Tuesday is the whole idea about relegation and promotion in the sports. Oh credits you already listing mystery craters out now. It's been out just like a couple of hours. So what's your takeaway on man I did that. Let me start again. Pick up here thirty one my man Yeah No. It's really good episode. it made me think about other things that I hadn't thought about before so I thought it was really good. from my perspective I was thinking and I had this thought like way back before there was the college playoffs the BCS system in college football that we could apply the that promotion and relegation to College Sports. It's specifically college football that way. You don't get like Alabama play all these cupcake games and having this kind of almost inflated record. I think promotion relegation is largely dependent on television dollars otherwise if there's no money granted there's a lot of money being pumped dumped in but I mean specific player contracts. You seem like a really nice guy. I think walking around the house right now. What can we bring the energy or is this just like your general vibe web? Oh yeah this is just my general under slow a low key person. Where do you live? I'm in Utah but I grew up in Hawaii. Oh Did you get from Hawaii Utah. It's actually not that uncommon yeah. There's a lot of people and you talk us a lot cheaper Utah what part of Hawaii it's beautiful place which island Oahu the touristy one yeah yeah worrisome aretha on Honolulu. It's getting overcrowded but I don't know what to do about that. I mean that's just the way things go. Of course that's like field trip for like third graders. Yeah I did that in flip flops big mistake yeah especially when you went during the day it's not I didn't plan on hiking diamond head. I left my resort and I just walked the shoreline and I was like Oh look at that mountain we should do that and and before you know it walked like twenty miles one day in flip flops it was just a horrible decision but beautiful yeah what part of Utah Provo Provo so you're right there by Byu. I I've never been to Hawaii so I'm curious. Reese like there's like there's a stereotype of people think that everyone lives in Hawaii just like surfer dudes and stuff like that what percentage of people in Hawaii or like hard core surfer for people. Oh I wouldn't know percentages but I wasn't a stiffer person like I barely got to the beach. When I was living there? Yeah it was hard to get there because of just needing to work to the bills. I've had this theory that you guys have a lot more tiger. Tiger Shark attacks any lead on. I don't think so yeah and any time there's a missing person or or just like a drowning learning. I think it's all like this is reckless but I think it would hurt your tourism industry if they actually knew the actual number of Tiger Shark so you'd think that there's people that are causing the getting attacked. Anthony kept it under wraps. I've long thought this I've long thought this about any major tourism hub. That's around the water that we'll just especially Australia Australia Ocean rescue guy over the weekend and he was telling me he's like he works. I guess on keeps game. I don't know exactly where it is that. He said he was like man. I I have to go out on Jetskis to kind of make sure everybody's following. Whatever like the people at the beach you'd be shocked at how many sharks right they're like? They're constantly. He's like icy like three or four for shark today and people like in the beach have no idea how many sharks there are in this area. Have you seen like the drought the drowning numbers in comparison like the shark attack numbers in Australia. I'm I'm just saying I'm just saying what are the numbers. I don't know but it's like they have very low shark attack numbers on my get out of here every time I watch shark week with those sharks at Outta here Australia crazy place does like they have really odd wildlife. I'd say compared to like size that they have of some spiders fighters spiders snakes that are just in your toilet hop in the ocean. It's a great white shark. It's not even like a one of these like bull sharks not that there is a species have you traveled with breath is in Australia where they went at the end of the movie that You Love The surfing movie that I just saw the so like Johnny Utah Talk Who is still somehow allowed to have a badge like all these cops. I think you should have got into gers indirectly responsible for the killing of a police officer in a bank and almost directly responsible for purposes death yet died because of like Oh yeah yeah copped opt at the very least at the very least this dude sill arou- have a badge to throw into the ocean at the very end like Gad's his resignation how has allowed to resigned. You should be locked up Johnny Utah but it is a great scene because Bodey earlier talks about the fifty year storm and how they need one last Great Hall to be able to just do the fifth year storm chairman. It's always been bodies planned to die doing the fifth year storm so Johnny Utah comes up to him. These like a came to cross an unclaimed piece of meat down in Bah turned out to be rosy because you pick a knife fight with somebody bigger so and then like Patrick swayze the is this your inspiration for the surfer for guy for K. on new I think pick it up a little bit more but then like they scrap and body actually wins the fight but during the fight hi John Utah puts like a handcuff on Bodey and he's like now man come on let me go. I'm not GONNA go anywhere. Just let me go out there and let me let me just one way borough hook them right back and so like he goes off and like again johnny top being a terrible cop and the Australian cops. What are you doing? You let him go. We'll get when he comes back and Johnny Utah like he's not coming back. Oh and this as like body paddled out there told them like Viacom Dios. We're talking about way so there I am man you ever see point break. I did not you should check it out. Don't have to wait. I liked his energy at the tail end. I was thinking about the very ambien like wait. I want you to just like seeing starts singing a song number. We'd have to take that out Let's talk to Trey Trey. You're on the Air Trey Wingo. No it's not true with hey. How's it going? Hey how's it going good when he wanted to discuss yeah. I WanNa just thought well I. I only watch I take as a chases. I'm eleven dr saying through and through only watch I take the time to get past time but with that being said Foxworth is destroying Stephen lately thing Foxworth is coming for his crown. Thank you might take it so I wanted to talk about skin personalities for president so I got fucked. I'M GONNA go ahead and order from five to one I five. I got Max Cullen patients to put up with Stephen a every day for Ryan. Clark's looks alone three Communica Harvard Education to Bomani Bomani number one. I think Dominic Foxworth should be president of the United Steve. I think I like from that list. Everyone obviously I like on that list but if you made me choose one of those people right now those five people I have to vote for president for going Meena. I too am voting but I want dominic on the bills like vice. Did you guys know that was born in Nebraska. Yeah you probably knew that I did not know that she she was born in Nebraska. Yeah I still haven't pin down why she has her accent because she is a very bizarre accent considering the places that Sheila's anthrax sent I she does have an accident. I can't really put it towards like she says certain words like how does that sound come any amount primarily northeastern. She sounds out west so I think it's like a combination of things and and one point like just in talking to I'm like did you come from a military family. Because your accent is like all over the place you moved around a lot clearly and she's like yeah. I spent most of my time in Nebraska so I guess she ran for president which he'd be representing Nebraska California or Washington identifies. Most most with Washington have a couple other nominees. Those were some resident from the companies. That trade came up with some good ones. Tim Kirk John. I feel like has to be in this discussion. We might not have the background. They don't have the backbone to be president. I think he's too short to be president. It's true it's not like I know that sounds bad but like that's that's the thing I'd dump gum bro Reading Hell Dunkin Yeah L. Dunk Davis naming racist I don't know about they need a backbone. That's actually dominic might be the winner there well Chris Fowler is reese rebound. No shot at reece's backbone. I'm just saying like Chris. Valor is like you know like dirty re. He's got to look to he's got the presidential jaw I mean and they all do or Chris Valor man. That's good that might be the winner. Isn't there was a guy that L- he could be the president just by looking Herbie Herbie Terry to anybody buddy really with college game day pretty much bare. WHO's the least qualified to be president it probably they're probably I don't know I think bear knows alive? They all know a lot. You get on there. Yeah David pollock's almost too good looking looking to president too good looking to be happy ever heard of presents but there's never been like I mean I know we had Kennedy guests. Kennedy get started on his looks again the one about that all day long. Oh you hausky cows key Chen Lada I mean it looks like whoever's president it will genera ASCII. No Jakubowski Ski that Person G Mosque's part of Game Day robots came picking robot robot. He's a long time. Have you seen holy moly how they have a robot that it goes against Steph curry that hits and it's just ragas face. It's the same thing you haven't seen that now. Yeah there's a robot and there's a whole and it steph curry and then there's a robot with wriggles face on a TV screen to Mexico skiing robot. He does features. I'll hold on so goes into the hits you know the robot hits the ball against Steph like far. It always looks like they're gonNa hit the lights so college game day has kind of like the similar thing they have like the robot the crunches numbers. They say that's not what he does. I'm I'm pretty sure if you watch the Saturday you'll see a robot Roy who you voted for for President at Espn Twenty Collins the quality wow boxing what does that yes box yeah but at least like Fowler had a jal. Unfortunately she's ineligible yes. It was yeah okay well. That's what I meant by from Westchester. Yeah stand up all right. Thank you for your call. Tra- I got one question me. He'll sit down. I know you guys migos. I let me go to Osama. Conti Ozzie degree like I love a good Momma. Both I think I could get it Luma Roy. We're could as thank you for your call. Today I have the we briefly talked about Cardi B. I have have a Cardi B. Question for you. Guys unrelated to the recent news or like Cardi Q. I really liked that and they're really good so have you guys seen on obviously like on instagram you know batches which is and all of that stuff bachelorette batches talking about familiar with the bachelor reporters. I'm familiar with King Bach. Never remember him on Instagram and he's people are always calling him batch really okay so I followed. Let him on like vine so far BRAC Wego. I have a weird obsession with these YouTube vine people like I. I don't like watch their youtube videos but I fall favorite viner Ryder follow the Paul Brothers like they're. They suck they suck they've had Britney for land was like my favorite. Tommy Lee Tommy ORCH Janko Ron Christie Dela Rosa E. T.'s above was absolutely of. I know he was a viner but your district like there are people that are only famous for vine and Youtube to me like is a comedian has a slices crisis favorite comedian you have to he's let me he's above those Peo- Talk. Now Right. I paid by Tick Tock. DOC has like a really popular podcast. He is above the Paul Brothers King this podcast thirteen minutes long isn't it. I don't know I don't listen to it has one who's in an eminem music video. Well Yeah Yeah because he's parlayed like those amazing eminem impressions. Did you see did you see the video someone sent it to me so he does like the fake impression right so eminem had the music video. Come out recently and I don't know who it was. I don't remember I wish I had more information but he played eminem the entire video so like the music playing and he's like wrapping being as Eminem but it's it's Krista Leah right and at the end of the music video eminem is Krista. Leah an Eminem is doing a Kristalina impression doing being an eminem impression which is really weird. Yeah I gotTA check this out. I wish I could tell you the song but I I do not all right so what's going on botch. No we were talking about Bachelorette parties ladies and Cardi B. So Q. Q. So you see how like Bachelorette parties everybody's like whatever they get like the balloons and bash parties to and they decorate and all that stuff right. It's like it's become a big thing like she said yes all of that stuff to to you know decorate rooms bachelorette parties so Cardi B. says that okay thing but like occur with like a bunch of ours and stuff like that so now bachelorette parties they sell balloons that say that and it says like she said occur with like a bunch of ours and I wonder if like twenty years from now people are going to be looking back at their bachelorette parties and like what is like mom. What is that and I'm like well you know there was this Cardi B. and she used to make this noise and we decided at the time it was a good idea to get ochre balloons and that's why forever on my special time in life when I was getting married to your father got occur balloons? I have some beef with Bachelorette parties. It's it's just there's so lazy but they gotta be more creative every Bachelor party. Let's put the bride in white shirt and let's put the rest of them. In Black Brown purple red other shirt like it's just so uncreative and the oh I thought of a good idea. Have you seen this. I thought it's real creative. We're GONNA put one of these like pageant winning across a sash penises on it. Oh Jose another idea. We're GONNA have all going to be holding penises. It's just like what do you do. Show me something like straws and stuff. You're trying to declare struggle you ever run into while you're out with the boys and Bachelorette party comes to town on and then all of a sudden. They're asking you to take a picture with a big inflatable peanuts. I just wanted to come to sloppy joes right exactly and then there's always one friend. That's always really anti I socialize so it's like all the been married one game usually usually a lot of them are married but you know everyone's having fun. It's like we're having a Bachelorette. We getting let's get wild and then there's one friend. That's like judging everyone. I said I wanted to go. I don't quite understand what part you're angry with billy angry with the friend that's not having having fun or you angry with the sashes. Are you angry with billy's that friend a bachelor parties that judges everybody exactly what's happening here Chris. I'm just I'm trying to figure out what your argument is and to show me something new Bachelorette parties. Let me see a Bachelorette party and be like wow that's like. They're holding her on one of those like Aladdin things where like there's four corner like you know what I'm talking about. There's four corners and she's sitting on a lot of magic carpet. Yeah I know but it's like they're holding the magic carpet ARPAN. She's sitting on a magic carpet. Whatever you know what I'm talking? I know what you're talking about. Spades live right. Where do you get one of them? I mean but that at least would be like I've never seen that before like show only something different. Don't show me. Oh which one's the bride that one's the bride Oh. She's she's holding a penis Straw closes sal real quick. Let's go to a couple of calls as quick as we possibly can. Let's go to Alex Alex. You're on the Air FELLAS. I have a quite a few Husarova too long so yeah sickle cell actually isn't like a disease or anything it is for to protect you from malaria if he would come from Africa in fact that's that's very interesting yeah. Some people yeah now truth be told there was some editing in yesterday's local hours so what ended up in the local hour was just me any flatly saying only African Americans get sickle cell anemia and that's not quite the case but it's primarily affects them in terms of demographic breakdown John. There's a lot of other stuff that are just I work in a blood bank signed all this other crap but also easily was fantastic. He was my favorite player for the Tigers back in the day all star Game Tiger he he was in the Homerun Derby was yes. I thought Tony Clark was your tiger. That was in the home run guy. I mean he always over the right field wall but did make a homerun derby fun fact and he's so little yeah he had like ninety. Damien easily was really baseball player like Sunday and home runs at the break got him in and then by the time the Marlins have this cool little thing that I think the the Miami Heat had for a while with backup point guards where people would come here to sorta resuscitate their careers resuscitate and Damian easily was one of those that worked out really well. They'd come off the bench and be really effective plug and play guys how how in nineteen ninety eight was seventeen home runs enough to get you into the Homerun Derby. I doubt macguire Ninety Eight. He did it as a second. Baseman in seventeen home runs back down for a second basement. was you know a very solid number. I I feel like people are like forty. Five home runs at the All star break in one thousand nine hundred eighty. That's a lot of home runs real. I guess you know Ray Durham Top. Where where was the Durham? No I Chicago White Sox but in terms of home home run numbers the American league had really good second baseman around that time Robbie Alamo would always start art ray Durham and Damian easily would be the backups and the All Star game also. I got allison black me on twitter and this is fantastic. You'll never are okay so we've been talking about how the dog versus cat stuff on quite a bit and dog twitter's Kinda crazy like they really hate cats and allison is one of those people so there is a video going around with the cat sleeping on the kids safe in he like had breathing problems at night and he took a video and there's a cat to sleeping on his face causing that to breathe very well and so everyone was complaining thing. You know see this just like cats WANNA kill people people hate cats and all I did was post dog fatalities dot com list of all the people killed and she blocked Lockney for dog by Good Day Sir Ray don't twenty home runs yeah Ray Durham was in that seventeen nineteen twenty range range reader and was a very two all star games for Durham with the the shy sox six work the year through wow every durham solid solid baseball player and then did you wanna title with the giants thing you might have won a world series with the with the giants. What are your thoughts on Ray Durham? It's just the name man it makes me smile because it brings me back to that time. I think a more is a giant. You said White Sox I would've liked maybe that was later in his career would make more sense for my timing split like half of his career with Chicago Chicago half of his career with what years where he what's he with the giants he won a world series with the giants no-doubt doesn't three through two Dow's up eight that makes sense that is literally my baseball. Hey right there. Oh three to the world series I know he made a world series with the giants in that. They played the angels that was a good world series two dozen to San Francisco. SF Jarring Remember Raid Durham in one video game I think it was MVP oh five with the the Dow the John Dowd Mvp. I think didn't he have a weird batting stance where he's that lake up against one of those unique banning saints is so the first one that giants had a really good run with Bruce Bocce Hall of Famer Two Thousand Ten two thousand twelve two thousand fourteen. No Damn derm just miss out last year years. There's a wait a wait was his last year is last year was a week in an dammit got. What are your thoughts as reclosed us out on Sabbath Getting sanding ovation? Ask You guys about that. Like who do you guys want to win the world series because I was thinking that CC had one but he you did win one in two thousand nine with the Yankees. It feels like forever ago but he wanted his first year at the Yankees and like I'd never root for the Yankees but I'm like man. FCC One hundred his last year and Stanton one one like that'd be pretty cool even though I don't like the Yankees but now that I see that he's won one. I've switched on it. I'm like I don't want them to anymore. I was kind of I would've I would've said the brewers brewers Yelich I don't know maybe because my wife and stand go Yankees at this point. I don't know I don't really have a strong feeling. I really want the dodgers to do this. I never thought I'd say that I I was rooting for an and thank God it only lasted for like five minutes until I google than found that he actually had a ring sees a bath you that is standing. If you remember Raina Wing wintering whatever the dodgers have been so close for so long and I want the dodgers if only you want. I think that's good for the game for Kirsch validation. Yeah I want them to hold a two capone. Stu Gods don't use anymore no no man. That's like me to relate to kids using something from two thousand PSI help the kids your phone anybody today. I I hope Cleveland Wins God. I love the plague when a championship Oh that's that's interesting. TWINKIES can match their team yeah. It'd be nice for them to win. They had that run in the early two thousand. I don't like when the world series it's too cold though there yeah when everyone's like wearing the very heavy jackets it's like bishop. What's the big race coming down the stretch? It's the AOL wild card race right. I think there's a wildcard is interesting too big markets are tied for the wild cursive visions with the exception of the NFL central or pretty locked up like nine and a half games in analysts is going to be hard to come back from the West is already decided is decided. I believe yes. I'll central's four games for I don't know Yeah Oakland's back in it. When I was talking about Tampa Bay in Cleveland or tie cards Yeah Oakland seems like two games up with not many left so Oakland San up they three team race for the AOL wildcard is nine and a half by Boston is not going to be now well? I guess you could say the mets are still in it three and a half back but the nationals brewers and cubs are all listen to so nationals wildcard spot they're up a game on the brewers were still in the suspect the injury and then right after that man you've got some really big markets so dylan. This Chicago Mets Philadelphia. The brewers have a negative run differential. That's surprising yeah wow negative twenty one. They're they're in their last CENSO-. They've played really well with yellow todd. Hey Luke

The Sleeper and the Bust Episode: 852 2019 Breakouts Proving It

"Episode Eight, Fifty, two of the sleeper and the bus. It is Thursday September seventeenth I'm Euros Paulus born joined by Justin Mason Justin Good Morning Sir how you doing? Doing well, well, enough hanging in there stretch run. What ten days left. Yeah I think eleven, eleven days, and he's are still pretty believable because of the shortened season. Did a little Talk and Fab with. With dusty, my my main event partner, we're. Saying Hey you know maybe we like a Miguel Row House or name Tin Simmons because a batting average they can i. don't know we her were. Six points back or whatever, and it's like. I just like, Hey, what do you think we would need to hit. To move those points. Saturno you know. Three. Forty is like two eighty. Batting average is still super movable. The other ratios to for sure and one thing. This actually is a helpful lesson for standard six months seasons about ratios being movable. Obviously not as movable this late but what Todd Zeile I know always focuses on when he does. Like an article sometime in. August or September talking about how ratios and we will only category where people can come back to you too. So that in enhances their move ability and then you throw in the fact that we're doing two months season they're wildly movable still, and then of course, a lot of county categories are bunched up so. Things are still moving quite a bit and It's GonNa. Be Some wild wild finishes. We hear about wild finishes in the standard six months. I think they're gonNA pay on comparison to what we're going to hear about. Next week it's it's going to be crazy. How are your teams do a by the way? My teams are doing okay. My main event team is still in the running though. took a hit yesterday. I'm third in the League I. Think I've got pretty close. Locked up which means It'll be profitable. So good. Yeah. The third place gets their money back in then a little extra. I think second place is still achievable and and maybe even I if I go on some sort of heater over the next eleven days. So. I'm hoping for it. I may be not helping that comes then It's GonNa be fun. It's GonNa. Be Fun to see how everything kind of comes down the stretch. We got plenty to talk about today we're going to get into the news and notes and then talk about a group of players that went from a twenty nineteen breakout tune establish stud this year they even in the short two month run here I think they've done enough to where they are now part of the bankable studs as we go into twenty one and I'll get your thoughts on these guys if you agree and how you're treating them next year because they're ADP is set to rise yet again, based on the fact that they kind of Said you know what twenty nineteen was was legit, but we have to start. Expect. With Jared, Walsh who Jared Walsh obviously Brandon Brandon's long lost siblings nine oh two one. Oh, jared. Joke. When over fifty percent listener Matt's. You you are a silly human idiot ninety, two percent had no idea what that. Maybe Matthew Berry listens in which case he just did a fist pump and like, yes, I, get that Jaren Walsh just in case you're wondering. Had played. Fourteen but fourteen played appearances from July twenty fourth this second it was non factor he wasn't playing wasn't room for him. came. Came into the lineup in a starting role on September fourth, hit a home run and decide you know what that was fun. I WANNA keep doing it. He has six homers in his last night in Games, which I would say is very nice. Four, zero, five, four, twenty, nine, nine, forty, two absolutely insane run definitely shifting leagues right now where he's been picked up particularly like daily if you scoop them now I think AOL, it would probably be the only ones to scoop them quickly. Otherwise folks probably just got him this past Sunday but even that. He's already done some damage there. These already give them two homers. Hitting ones each of the last two days on Tuesday and Wednesday. So Jared Walsh is on fire. The hell's going on with Jared Walsh of the Anaheim Los Angeles Anaheim California Orange County angels. Well I want I'm trying to find it because. Someone did a breakdown on twitter I WANNA. Give him credit. Okay. someone named at Taylor Blake Ward I went. I know that person. So twitter on them twitter. No. Yes. So he looks like he's just in broadcasting did a little gift breakdown of his swing from last year and his swing from this year, and there are obvious mechanical adjustments in quieting his load so. I think that is impart. Why he is have finding such success now I don't know how much he can I mean. He's obviously not going to do this. He's not turning into you know the greatest player of all time. Leapfrog Mike Trout on his own team. Attorney into anything viable though because the really interesting part is that it's even playing because he's first base. and. It's really come at the expense I think there was a small injury form actually no, it's not listed on rosaries coming expensive Otani essentially because is still playing, but he's the aging in Walsh's playing I yet Otani. Thank you. One I think just giving him extra days off because he because of the injury, the elbow. you know the pit the pitching elbow. Not, not not the hitting elbow but the pitching belt he's also struggled quite a bit. I was GONNA. Say It's actually been. You know knock great one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, seven, forty, nine for Otani. He's still been kind of fantasy solid with counting categories five homers, seven steals but. There is reason and then when when walsh catches a heater like this Why not let them play but you know he's banning second as well. inbetween, Fletcher and trout, which is nice. That's a nice old duo to be squeezed in between there. So you know I I wonder. Little something here for the future at all for Jared Walsh or is this just a hot run that We don't WanNa over eight too much. I think that it's a little bit of both I think he could turn into a viable corner the question will be. Walker maybe, yes, I think that's a really good example of the type of fancy player. You could expect from him if he's able to carve out a real role next year I mean. Look power isn't going to be prodigious considering how many ground balls es like a fifty percent ground ball guy. But if he's been able to make a tweak like he had, which is a pretty substantial tweak to swing mechanics. You think he'd be able to make another small one to may be raised that. launch angle a little bit so I think he's probably. Like a two eighty type hitter to seventy to eighty Type hitter I probably closer to seventy but he does have a lot of raw power that he could tap into with just another little tweak. He always hit the ball hard So I mean he's he's got a forty three percent hard hit percentage, and that's actually down from last year sixty, five raw in the last profile we had for Walsh to. which was which was at twenty twenty report. You know he's a little bit of an older prospect. In his age twenty seven season, but it was still enough to get profiled his any made the top twenty five for the for the angels jared washed. His development was slowed in the minor leagues because he was also pitching prospects so. This two way player I actually have him of had them all season in A. In my thirty team hundred man roster dining era keeper league that I do. and so he's been a nice little add or not add the nice little bonus for for that team that's doing fairly well cronin worth ask in that in that he had that pitching capability there. But now the hittings emerging, he popped thirty six homers last year tripoint. I know that the rabbit ball was there and and it is. Two factors that could really help but any time you popped thirty six hours in ninety eight games by the way four hundred, four plate appearances. That's a little something to behold there for for Jerry Walsh, and this is actually is age twenty, six season. He is now twenty seven years old but what the cutoff age twenty, six season. So you know keep it high on him We'll see what develops with regards to the role next year as far as playing this heater. Let it ride out. I mean he is on the roster resource. Power rank is number one over the last seven days which is, which is impressive for sure. They're going to keep playing because why one day and batting two between Fletcher and Trout is nice I bet betty still available in some leagues. Obviously, you've missed the best, but I wouldn't be surprised if he called him another couple homers and had a few RBI's the rest of the way to. So if you still need a cornerback in your shower early, you might as want check it out because I can understand why people would still leave John Walsh available. All right moving on. Oh charges came in and what's up Shar where'd you even come from my door was closed deny open doors now could be trouble. I just. I just watched the the original Jurassic Park, my daughter. The scariest part for the raptors figured out how to open doors. Open the doors the scariest part of that will be. It will. Get my Jello Jiggling to. In in terror of the of the raptors. Great. Great Movie, the Love The love the original for sure But Brady Singer quantock about him. The Phoenix. from Casey, had another jam. You know he got knocked around a little bit. In a pair of starts against the white sox nothing wrong with that. He faced them back to back gave up eight runs in ten two thirds since then is bounceback brilliantly in two road starts with fourteen scoreless innings including a no hit bid at Cleveland back on the tenth in which he ended up going eight innings one run or excuse me one hit. Shutout ball eight strikeouts bounces back. In his next one gets the Tigers six scoreless onto heads, another eight strikeouts. So he's been mostly good. really is only flat out bad. There's probably there's been two. Five earned against the white sox and five hundred third foreign against the twins in four other than that. He's ranged from solid to great and causing very strong here. Brady singer a legit prospect. Twenty, three years old what do we make of Brady Singer and what we've seen so far intense starts fifty four and a third innings, and then what are we doing spinning forward next year with him because he like I said, he was legit prospect and he's he's been showing some interesting Some interesting stuff here on the mound this here I think he's one of those guys that could really take a step forward next year I mean he's already got the command part down, which is not something we typically see from kind of big name pitching prospects typically they're coming up and. Got You know some filthy stuff but maybe poor command mean we grated amount as you know, fifty, five, sixty command profile. I'd like to see him throw that change up maybe a little bit more. But. I mean in this last start does change up once. Even though no, he was. He was I mean just. Your Tigers down. So not hard not hard but still you get credit for all of it and as a rookie, I'm not going to take away just because of of the the opponent there. But you're right it is it is really a sinker slider approach right now with with the change of being a show me pitch. Over the course of six months. At. As as teams Kinda get the book that will become a problem. Yeah. You really do want to have that offering. Can his chain become that legit pinch? We gave it a forty present with future though so Eric does see some some development there. Are you seeing some of that development potential as well? Yeah. I, think it's a decent pitch like I. I don't think it's ever going to be. Like a premier pitch for him, I? Think it could be good enough and actually I think it is good enough right now that he could be usable if get it up into the ten percent range I think that would be very beneficial to him you know and I think he really does need I don't think he's one of these guys that can live onto pitches stuff isn't nearly dominant enough. But. Especially, with the amount of contact, he gives up especially inside the zone. And how hard contacted I think that'll be disastrous if he continues. To pitch approach so. If we're seeing him throw it more I think in spring next year I'm going to start getting a very excited and I don't think the tax on him is going to be extremely high. Now now being Casey Pitcher, I don't think buddies singers going to generate all that much interest. In fact, they've got a group of pictures that. I could really see as as supplemental pieces to a staff. They don't have to be key to what you're doing. They can just kind of be added in in that would include Brad Keller as well. Danny Duffy even have quietly doing pretty well, this year and Chris Booby I thought has has shown some things in his eight stars nine one in five. He's got Kinda short end there, but he's also Import impressed me a bit. So think I think Casey could be an interesting resource for some first supplemental pitching next year and they still got guys on the way and it's a real big guys will come up. I mean they had no reason to bring up a lot of these guys that they've got. Jackson Co are they don't need. So they brought up rich and singer singer was. More expected because he'd reach double A. Last year boobs came from high. And that was that was a pleasant surprise though I kind of like some of the teams and they were one of them. That was aggressive with some of their prospects and said, hey, we're gonNA give now they weren't really competing or anything I understand from A. Contract standpoint, it might not have been the best move but I I applaud and I like when especially with pitchers if you deem them ready. Wasting bullets on an alternate site, not even minors at least in the minors if you're if you're winning titles that there is a little bit of value to that as far as having organizational success but wasting bullets on the on the frigging alternate site no way. No, it you you don't WanNa. Do that. So I respect that they brought up these guys this year and I mean Lynch and Co were both twenty four years old or you know Lynch's close to being twenty four. Th, they've had a strategy of drafting college arms. Then we're going to be advancing quickly. So I think both those guys will be in their rotation at some point probably April may of next year that they could have a really strong rotation next year strong young rotation. Yeah. It depends. Now if they can find some heading and then all of a sudden, they could be one of those sneak teams because It's to get to a point to where they can move some of these guys into the bullpen to strengthen their bullpen via these stars. And all of a sudden a pitching a force for KC, need a little bit of hitting and then hey, maybe they're back to another run here after winning world series not too long ago. So good on them. I want to go out to Baltimore talk about Keegan Aken Definitely a guy did not know about until this. But has hit the radar and done some impressive things including a big star last night where he struck out eight and he's got his era down to three thirty, eight on the season with a one twenty-three whip it's only been eighteen, two thirds the only through five innings scoreless last time last night he'd been. Crushed by the Yankees before that for four runs in two thirds but then the start before that it was five and a third shutout against the Yankees. So you know he really only has that one major blow up in these last four start otherwise they've been pretty good and I've been impressed with the strikeout numbers six eight only got one in the in the two thirds of any, and then nine is key in Eggen aching somebody that's hitting your radar and my gate deep mixed or Al only sort of level. I are you interested here in the twenty five year old lefty for Baltimore. Bids on him this past week for for for this week and rest of the way just starting pitching is just a landmine. Especially, if you're getting a nightmare this year it really as especially if you're planning in deeper mix leagues or obviously ill and only it's it's been really difficult to string pitchers kind of in and out but Aken was widely available. I took a shot on him I think in two leagues. I got him but he wasn't my first choice. I don't know how sustainable what we've seen is GONNA be I mean pitching in Baltimore is just can be disastrous. Just. Because of the park he walks a lot of guys and so I and the rest of the division can be you know, yeah adds to it with them coming into Camden. You know yeah I mean tends to give up a decent amount of hard contact. I mean, it's not like a grievously bad or anything I do like that. He he does have the third pitch to kind of. Rely on that you know like singer doesn't he throws his change up seventeen percent of the time slider twenty, two, a four, seamer sixty. So I think he's a guy you can kind of work with rest of the way I haven't checked to schedule I'd probably be good. I can do that while while you're talking about him because you know what I'm going to also ask you. Are, they starting to change the reputation there as far as developing pitch because it's a new, it's a new regime and I don't really put the lack of Bundy development on the Mike Elias regime because they didn't have him from the start and so you know he does leave and all of a sudden he breaks out. It's like Oh here we go again with Baltimore enable unable to develop pitching you know Aitken. Dean Kramer has done some interesting things. This year John Means hasn't had the results, but his stuff is actually really ticked up I had kind of a law season two within days and the paternity Lee early lost the handle on these. Yeah, I mean just. It's it's just been a weird year. Kind Kinda throw this one out I do but I been impressed that his stuff has improved the has and I wonder if maybe they're starting to turn the dial on instead of always seeing them as a team where if you like a pitcher and all you want them out of there quickly as possible. Maybe we start to interested in some of the guys that they're developing by the way AKEN. WE'LL GET A to start next week at Boston and Toronto. Yes that's. But I am I would play that I. Play that if you need strikeouts, you go for it, I mean probably not going to get a win from it. You know because it's Baltimore and they don't win games very often. One Austin's pretty terrible. Yeah. You and who knows? I mean Toronto has a playoff spot wrapped up by then that that's the last game of the year they they could be knocking at putting out the B squad Aaron in just preparing for. Everybody so the I mean that's that's actually a really good streaming target for people to play in weekly. So at cake and and CREPE Myrtle, only get one start, but it'll be against Boston and he actually started today against Tampa Bay. So he does have to starts left himself and Yeah I've been surprised Baltimore's been a little bit of refuge for some for some streaming options here this year Yep I think. Rest of the way I'm I'm definitely on board I'll do a deeper dive in the offseason to see but I mean. He's going to have a role next year. You would think, oh, I mean come on. He's probably their number two starter heading into next year. Yeah. How can they cannot and Kramer as well and you know they they should get an opportunity to do something for sure. So keep an eye on both those guys and again. I think we might be turning the tide at least a little bit on Baltimore, pitching where you're not just instantly running away from it. You still got to be mindful of the park in that but as they bring up some of their prospects that they've been working with now for a few years under the new regime, we might have a little something here speaking of streaming being the landmine. That that, we that we talked about one of the guys who was you know the the king stream or to start the season has been optioned randy dob neck got option to the alternate site. When he started this year I mean it was excellent. He had. Six starts of two or fewer runs in a one, seventy, eight through those six starts. Since then he's only been going in one outing and you can't blame it on competition because it's been Detroit Detroit Saint Louis and the White Sox, the white sox really always scare team they're. Cardinals you don't love facing them but as well as as well as dominic was pitching. You. Were down to start against against them and yet three of the four have been a nightmare six, zero, five and four earned runs respectively for an eight twenty, seventy, a moving his composite airing from one seventy, eight to four, zero, five on the air. So you look at it bottom line it's not too bad but you look at him recently and that's why he was sent. Out because he's a really really been struggling now I, think Jake odorous he came back in instantly laughed with a blister I believe and so dominic might just turn the car around and come back. But how do you about Dominic this year and I know scary thing and great line by Samory how do you spell dominic one? K. So funny. So true because he does not miss bats. But how do you feel how do you feel about him this year with the jumble success of being excellent for six stars and then a nightmare for three. For. Three or four I should say, sorry. I don't understand why he kind of changed a little bit of his pitchy usage. I mean he he's become more and more relying especially in the last two starts on the slider which I mean it's not a bad pitch, but it came at the came at the expense of the change up as opposed to the expense of the Bat fastball. and I think that has hurt him. And I mean this is the This is the downside of guy like dot who doesn't strike guys out it doesn't have the ability to just you know Mogi. down. And really relies on contact. Is that things can go bad in a hurry and so. I i. mean is is and I think you just cut bait obviously and in move on. My guess is the twins will do something for that rotation coming into next year. So I just don't know if he's going to be. Back in the rotation unless he just looks amazing and spring. You talking about next year? He Yeah He. Could see them. Putting themselves in a situation where he's their sixth or seventh, and they only have to rely on him for depth I think they're gonNA make some changes here. They're going to be aggressive whether it's via trade or via the free agent market where Burritos Odori Z.. Majeida are GONNA be their top three and they're going to kind of work from their motorist sees a free agents but that's right. That's right. That's right. So actually the really only coming with Briones made in Pineda. Pineda to your Guy Yeah. He's got a he's got ten million on the books for next year. Yeah. I was just going to check that. So okay. So those it'll be the three that they've got nice to have Benita. You know even if he goes back to me and Mike Open Yada where he's kind of been forced guy for ten mil that can't really hurt you. So we'll see what they do going into next year I. Don't think they most they would wanna have dominic as a fifth. Year. I can't say that I saw him falling apart when when he was cooking I, had him on a couple of teams I was enjoying the success. You had the support of Minnesota along with the fact that he was pitching. Well, you felt pretty good about it, and then just falls apart there with the with three crummy outings in four starts and he'd the twins don't need a fifth starter because they have a few days off down the stretch here. So I don't know that either even need him to come back unless they may bring it back for like a spot. Start. You know here or there or something like that because you know they're going to be pretty locked into a player playoff spot as well, and it may be a tuna just so that he's reading. So but yeah, I don't know that he is. Necessary, it's necessary that they actually bring him back. Definitely I can bring safely cut him in all formats. Especially, the one where you haven't already I think would be really ill in deeply shall we should should've gotten out It would be what what? What Nick would call the Vargas Rule Nick pollock Pitcher l'est wherein you're trusting a guy that you don't fully believe in until until you really start to see that that that trouble you don't leave at first start at the first sign of trouble. But the second bad start you start to jump out and like I said he's had three of his last four go south. So I think it was time you've probably Vargas ruled the DOB neck out there again shouts to Nick pollock of Pitcher list for that one Let's move on. Let's stay with Minnesota though and talk about I know this is going to really shock you. Byron, Buxton having great finish to the season. Rephrasing, dude that's so bizarre. Even in a crazy short season, he finds a way and he's GonNa coax everyone back in. He's got five homers in his last eight games. He now has ten on the year and I swear this Guy September I mean you. Look at his trip trivia question. How many walks does he have this year? Three one. Is that how many stealing asked to Yes Oh. Sweet sweet. That's wild. So one for one for two on the basepaths and he he's attempted to walks in gotten one. He got into another three ball counting didn't like how it felt and struck out. Weird Weird, weird weird setup this guy like for real buxton. His September he's august-september are so much better. You go by the month. Oh s over his career. It's five, sixty, seven, sixty, sixty, nine, six, twenty, one, seven, thirty, four, eight, Oh four, an eight, eighty in August and September his nineteen homers in September easily his highest like by far and he's doing it again, this year has got five with ten, fifty, one PS. And you know twenty seven next year I think the tough part is that the lack of speed because you know this was coming with the power was coming wisdom stolen bases. You'd see that fully dynamic player, but I guess I have to ask where he add on Buxton for next year. Now it was after a strong finish well I mean here's the thing i. think you just mentioned the biggest issue is he's not running and this isn't a personal decision. This is a team decision. The twins have ten total stolen bases on the year. 'cause they don't need them. homers they're like we don't need you to run. They don't want people to run out. It's exactly I mean they're in the ending that they go there last in the league. In stolen bases and I. Just I don't know that that's going to change a huge amount coming into next year. This seems like an organizational shift so If he doesn't have the stolen base upside, which is one of the main reasons you love boxed in I. I. Just don't know that he becomes I, think these less interesting of a player coming into twenty twenty one that he was coming into twenty twenty in spite of the hot stretch. No I tend to agree because without that speed he's. A mediocre. With decent power. Yeah. Like back the talents there and. Part of it too is just their their overall team theory which definitely drives a lot of him him being paused on the basis for Buxton but also the fact that they want to keep them healthy and do you want to take the extraneous Risk of having him run and slide in and you know bust a hand that way or something for a handful of stolen bases particularly like said, your team doesn't need it because of all the home runs that they can hit. So I do wonder if they're going to fundamentally alter who Buxton is as a fantasy player and that would really that would really take away from from what we. Can have here I. Still He's GonNa end up going higher than I wanna Pay Yeah Oh for sure. Well, bottom line is going to be something that I'm just not willing to pay. So I, love I actually really really like watching Buxton play he's so fun to watch play but I can't do it fantasy wise I can't pay the premium right now especially with the injury profile that he has it's. It's just not worth it. Any unlike said, if he's not going to run like how much different is he than Randall Grischuk Exactly. Exactly. Or you know maybe this next guy is even better than him. Tasker Hernandez. What happened here everyone was talking like season was over when he first went on the I which I get with Oblique I am always on the wrong end of the time line and tacking on time. So I was right there thinking this was it. Not Like critiquing anybody in particular. But that seemed to be the news was like, Hey, this is probably for tasker. Maybe they get him back for the playoffs and he's been activated off the injured list From his from his oblique injury had a minimum stay and he's ready to go I. Think he's GonNa be in the lineup today against the Yankees. Am Am I crazy to be shocked by this or are you not a little bit surprised that he's back as quickly twenty twenties weird and it just stays bizarre like I mean this in most seasons would have been a season ender typically we talk about Oblique. Being a four to eight week injury and we tend to want to rule on the longer end of that time line. So apparently, it wasn't hurt as bad as. maybe it was made to believe. Only because he's He has already. been. One of those things where they went, you know look we're we're pretty close to being locked in for a playoff spot y. let's make sure that this guy is ready for the playoffs and let's not take a chance of him know exacerbating and then missing playoff. So exact or so I mean, yeah I. Mean if he's check your leagues 'cause I bet you people dropped him. I was if I had had him anywhere I was operating under the idea that he should be cut. I'm pretty sure I dropped him in my oh see. So it was for me. Yeah. No, and it was it was understandable. It really was especially in a twelve team, which is where you cut himself. I get it but He's back and don't don't assume do not assume. Check the the waiver wire and just see what's up. 'cause he may well be there tasker could. Could maybe deliver a little something low fantasy goodness forty down the stretch here. In my main event. Then Go. And I don't I don't blame whoever caught him yeah they're probably. Dumbfounded that he's back in his how do I WANNA bid on him How much you got I got thirteen bucks. I think unless you know. However many other spots you need to fill. Minus that from subtract that from the thirteen and there's your bid. To. Other spots to fill you put eleven and then to one dollar guys. And you just unfortunately the guys to the guys in front of me in terms of money or also in front of being in terms of the standings but I was able to pick up. Tommy. Fam- in spite of that same scenario never in last week you. So you just never know because they could be going after different categories. They're not looking at me behind them. They're they're looking at the overall murder top twenty shadow Tabatha crazier boy who is just been killing it this season toby having Elvis and for sure. Yet you know they might need pitching they might need speed. They don't even care about about a power guy like tasker so we'll see All right. Let's talk about let's talk about some players who have. Even in the short two months I know it's not a full season here but I think they've done enough to establish themselves after their twenty, nine hundred and breakout where they are now an established stunned and will be as such going into next year straps and I WANNA start. This was this was born of a two homer game last night from Dj Lemay you and I was just thinking back about damn dude he really he really has. Glad, we traded him. In. Labor I. Mean at least we picked up jared walls. To to replace him so it hasn't heard us and we got. Man Yeah we we're we're we're in the mix Things are things are looking good. We I. Don't think we can win it would take quite a bit i. don't even know if the standings could be finagled enough with our ninety six points to catch Fred Zinke at one fourteen and a half but I think we could range his highest second. That's an eleven point ten and a half points stretch right there. A we've been playing. We've been playing really well, and we know we did not we did not trade. LemMe. We still have limit you. We traded months after it was. Yeah. We try to Muncie We made a late trade with with Tim Clown. He was he had a bunch of pitching and in the very last. In the very last. Day on the deadline he's like you know what? I'm just going to go through trade about a bunch of excess pitching and leverage it for as much as I can get, and that included a little trade with us where we gave him Muncie and so act for Bieber and we got Carlson back but it didn't matter. He got sent down literally like the next minute like nine minutes later. So we're on. Okay that's fine. Whatever so Yeah and like I said, we picked you mentioned picked up. Walsh we got Lemay you're doing well but yet this, this is another big game from him to a two homer game out of Lemay you had me thinking. To, this guy completely panned out. If you you know if you did the oil extrapolation game on a full season this year, he'd be pacing for even more homers than his twenty six last year, which is why you extrapolate thirty nine games but he has nine homers in those thirty nine Games is a ten forty-seven pm. He's been better across the board he's been amazing. As. I wanted to talk about these players that that have backed up their big nineteen and talk about some of the the rise that I think they're going to see in ADP next year you and I talked about Lahia Lot. In the Muncie McNeil like all three of them together and we liked I, mean, we drafted to them we had. We had Muncie I was still you. We like these multi positional guys. They were just inside the top one hundred felt like that was a fair price. Is La- mayhew. Top three rounder next year I think he asked to be. I mean, he's GonNa have second rounder. I think there is an argument to be made there. You're GONNA hit on his eligibility, what what is going to be first second and third again. I mean I mean he's he's got Let's see I mean the primarily playing seconds at Twenty eight Games air ten games at third in nine games at first and other question for you Is He best deployed at first base? I mean I think he probably is but I I think you know you draft him let's say you're getting you take him in the third round It just gives you so many more options of who you can take later. I because of the triple -bility I, think the fact that he's going to have the triple eligibility. He provides the average which is so useful especially leagues with an overall. As long as you don't go with my punt batting average strategy. which if on drafting will. Definitely not doing. Yeah I. think There's an argument that he should be second round. I don't know that I can pull the trigger on him. In the second but. Mid. To early third I think is probably where he's going to be on. I think no later than thirty I think I think, Lemay who is now a top forty five guy that'd be fifteen or so of course we are. In that kind of main event realm but I think even even in your twelve's, you're really starting to look at him at least in that top forty went to put some. You know at latest early fourth-round but I I think I can't see myself porn trigger I I'm. Obsessed with multi eligibility. I love the batting average piece that you're talking about and he's backed up the power breakout from last year to show that that is that it is legit and yeas and a little bit of an older breakthrough here. I mean, he was thirty last year. You know he's going into his age to season next year but I don't think we have any reason to think that he's going to fall apart. No, I mean they just skills are so strong. He's had at least. Six hundred plate appearances each seasons fifteen except for one time and that one eighty at exactly. So I mean I think what hurts him in terms of draft Catherine will is that he doesn't steal mean he's only got stolen bases this year he's part of his game and yeah, he's more of an opportunistic base-stealer than he is like you know, Oh, I'm taking off here. You know he's Yeah. So that will that will drop his price a little bit but I I think. Yeah, I think mid to early third round is is the right spot for a guy who is triple eligible and your contributes in you know four of the five categories. And aggressively. So in that batting average category that there's often over and runs like the two that can be overlooked. And again, I, can't stress the triple eligiblity enough the the the way you can maneuver things around both within your draft but then also within the season so valuable. So I love Dj. Lemay excited to draft again next year even with the big rise in price and you think to that the Yankees can't be any more injured than they have been this year and so the link you would think I I don't want to like say for sure but you would think that runs scored number will jump up and I mean he's he's twelfth this year in runs scored. Man. Yeah. Banning atop that, lineup. If they can find it, I mean, hell we didn't think it'd be more injured than they were lashing. He'll hold my beer and said, now, look what we can do. And it's it's been crazy and that they're still a competing team just shows you the the amazing DAB. Thin anyone if anyone still doubts that cashman great GM, you're you're just a dip at this point I'm sorry like, yes, he has resources but resources alone do not make you great. Games with the resources that are putting up that bad member. So absolutely. Now. Here's one that surprises me because I thought. He was actually going to be a little bit on on the lower end here. And it was definitely due to the fact that his batting average was cast hero. Was Somebody. that. I found him to be overdrafted for my tastes primarily because I would I would rather have taken Brandon Lau much. Later I found I found their profiles to be similar, and that's certainly. That certainly has worked out but I will say those that took Justin here despite the twenty two average. They don't have a lot to be angry about because he was six at second base in average opposition and he's fourth at the position on the player right now. And it's because those thirteen homers. Twenty eight runs thirty two rabies three steals that's making up for the two twenty, two average it's really His batting average, they're part of it's also second base is not. A super strong position. But Hey again you drafted him as the sixth second basement and he's been the fourth. You can't argue with the production here. What do you think of here another though now that we've seen a the batting average struggles here because the strikeout rate was. So that was my big thing was I didn't think we were giving enough credence to the to the. Heavy Bab if that did a lot of the work there because he was striking out so much he has not stopped striking out as striking out just as much thirty, one percent last year at thirty, two percent this year. Do, you assess here going forward even as he's been able to run this batting average for a pretty quality season I. Mean here is typically the guy kind of guys that I love in a give me power me speed screw batting average. There are some serious concerns with how much he strikes out and how average may continue to be. Because I mean you look at his ex batting average and it's You know to thirty two. You know he's six he's six percentile in terms of. K percentage it's also pretty bad defender. He's Kinda hitting their at second base so There's some things to be concerned about and I do think that people are just going to look at the. Total of the parts and go hey, st he steals a little bit You know he's got plenty of power. He's got the counting categories but look, do we really expect the brewers who are considered a fairly smart organization to continue to bat him second Third Fourth Fifth in this lineup if he's striking out at, you know thirty two percent clip. Yet not. NOT WITH WITH A. Complete lack of development I. Think there needs to be something that starts turn around or else he has to kind of move until like fifth sixth role I would I would think for casting era because. Yeah. I. Mean there's just. The strikeouts, man and listen. You have to be careful going too far and just forgetting everything else somebody does an only focusing on on the negative of the strikeouts. He does a lot of other good things and when he does make contact he crushes. As we've seen this year for cast in here but I do wonder if there's a breaking point and. And also, you know he's not that great of a base runner. What if that? Isn't delivering double digit stolen basis. Then what kind of fantasy asset does he become? You know? Yeah I didn't think that is become the question because. Last year what he was nineteen and nine in you know pretty much half the season. and so people were dreaming on that kind of you know thirty five twenty forty forty twenty yeah real. Batting average because the BAB was so high and I think what we've seen this year is kind of the floor in terms of what what we could expect. From the batting average department. It's hard because I don't WanNa. Call Him, Monte ask. I understand why you would even hinted. Trading the power for speed like monty ask in terms of play profile and batting average time. But I mean there is there is some considerable downside and if you eat a full season of twenty average from your second round pick, that's not going to be good. and he's GonNa be a second round, pick your I. Think. That's the thing I and that's that's why I included him here because despite. Despite some of the struggles. Are the primary struggle with the batting average people are gonna see that he's delivering with the pop and he's GonNa. He's GONNA show. Hi. On earned auction values, employer player raiders, and whatnot think people are going to be justified to at least running back in like the third fourth round if not boost up to the second round thinking, Hey, he can improve that batting average. And I think they'll still be some. Who believe that he can cut the strikeout rate because he didn't quite strike out like this and the minors only aaa did he ever strike out at twenty six percent? But now now we're talking thirty thirty plus I two seasons here. I don't know I don't think I'll have any casting here next year not at the price of trending that. Highly. Yeah. Be Interested to see where he goes, but I got a feeling he's going on to the second round in them. We're going to point to the the really low Bab this year and be like Oh. You know there's no reason to think you'll you know get that unlucky but? Contributes to it. So I don't even think it's all bad luck. Because, you have to be so sharp when you do put it in the contact in into play when you have that little bit of contact. Let's run to the other side completely here as far as. Expectations and delivering on them Fernando Totti's. Holy smokes he's been insane He was fourth at the position shortstop. Obviously, he's I on the player is first overall on the players he's been insane and. You know he's going to be a first rounder. He's GonNa. Go number one overall in a lot of drafts. Where'd you take them as high as number one overall? Who? died is. GonNa be. Difficult. I thought you were GONNA. Go Randy Jackson me. That's a no from me dog. I mean. The the overall numbers look good but he he's been struggling. certainly is certainly is I like on our splits page to we have a first half of the second half in the short season I know. So if we if we take those first half second half numbers into account which I'm pretty sure has just broken up by I thirty games, and then what will be the last thirty games so he's played fifty one games so far I thirty Games twelve home runs six bases three, fourteen batting average. Second Half So far twenty one games three home runs, three stolen bases to thirty one batting average. I mean he had to cool down, right? Yeah. You couldn't call that but I think this also you know is kind of. Points to some of the concerns that people had with his plate approach coming into the season and you know overall his strikeout rate has dropped which Was One of the big concerning things is that he had you know pretty close to a thirty percent strikeout rate So it's. The thing is it hasn't risen back up in in the second half actually decreased. He added thirty percent check irate in the first half of the the shortened season and announced down to under twenty percent. So. I think I. Don't know that I am yet ready to say he's the number one overall player, but I do think he's in the conversation. I agree I think I think he's put himself in that conversation like I said, he will go I in a lot of leaks I. Don't think he'll be. Unchallenged number one think they'll still be ideal. Still be some trout's for sure I think the Kunia will still be taking number one. It might just be those three though right and maybe some could you see like the gram going number one in some leagues? Yeah, I think I think degrom Wilgo number one in some lakes. I assuming you know he's not I think yeah I think you're GONNA see mookie go first and some leagues I think you may see Shane Bieber, go I in some leagues. So I mean I think it's GonNa to be a much more wide open top half of the draft in we've seen in years past I agree I agree I think there's some. Changing of the guard and not that the the old guard is completely out like I said trout. I, think we'll still go number one in plenty of leagues, but the new guys are moving in and I think pitching. We've seen the year-over-year as it continues to get more and more trusted they. We're GONNA see more. More pitchers maybe go number one overall I. Think even though he has been amazing I think Garrett Cole could be a number one overall on some leaks to for some people that wanted to just say you know what? You. Know he he settled down a bit in this first year as a Yankee a little a little bit up and down with the home runs, and even with a one point eight homer per ninety still has three E. R. A. In Point Ninety, nine whip and I could see people taking taking coal number one overall. So. Lots to like there. But yeah, Fernando Todd Totti's definitely established himself hats off to those of you who took him in the first round second round this year. You really got yourself a boon this next guy bob said. He was nine at the position in ADP and I'm giving him incomplete on the player Raider because he got injured but he was killing it and I think you everything that we've seen from him and now he is to he's also gonNA finish the season with with the ball club. I, think we've seen enough even in a shortened already shortened season an injury shortened version of that I think even that twenty two, a eighteen games sample. That we've seen out of him has been enough to be like, yeah, we can. We can believe in him as a as a premium player. I know it's a small overall sample, sixty four games, but I don't really have questions about Boba sheds talent and I I do trust him as a top three rounder and You know you look at it it's two hundred, Eighty, eight plate appearances with sixteen homers, eight steals and three fifteen average. What do you think? It's GonNa. Go next year. Yeah. I think he's probably second rounder as well. Yeah I think. So I think I would too. I have already had one draft. So far. the three Sport League. Okay. That's right. That's right. So technically I've had I've had two drafts because I have a three sport redrafted three Sport Dynasty And I believe got Bush on both of those teams and got him way later that I should have because they were being conducted like I was conducted before the sees before this started in the other one was conducted. After this season started had been injured. So I was GonNa say while he must hurt that probably depressed the price as well. So. I think he's I. Think there's an argument to be made that he's a top twenty player coming in the next year. Not Going to get a whole lot of pushback from me on that I. I love him I love the talent I think he's so good and. Contributor. and. In in potentially elite one on a team that's getting better. I mean honestly I think he is probably. I think there's an argument that he's in end of first rounder. Again, knock GonNa, get major pushback from you that I think it's open you can take them at this time. Last year we were talking about the potential this to tease was and. Wouldn't you agree that Bush has last question marks. Then yet to tease did coming, you know ending last year coming into this year. So he's got stronger plate profile which can help Have you believing in the batting average a bit more and again credit to for what he's done this year with his development by the way. In cutting those strikeouts but we already have Bouchette down. was at a twenty four percent last year he's Kinda down to eighteen. so He's hit three fifteen in his in his four major league sample. He's got sixteen homers I said eight steals. So yeah, I. I'm not going to push back on any of what you're saying here. I totally agree I could totally see I I could be the guy who does it I'm I'm open to being being the one who takes him in at that position I think the argument will become. Do you WanNa take a guy who's potentially the fourth or fifth shortstop the board in the first round? So I mean I t's first rounder Turner First Rounder Story First Rounder. Saigon against door. Yeah Lynn door potentially. depending on where he ends up in the off season. Did you say Trade Turner. Yeah said Turner Okay. So like you know, will we see five shortstops with the depth of shortstop? It's crazy dude you know go in the first round. I. Think you're I know you're taking dance Swanson late first round right I mean you got it right and Tim Anderson Right there one to the turn their insane by the way manny? Machado is a guy who would he won't be shortstop eligible. He'll be three be only quick quick anyway Yeah. So Bush. Really moving up I. Love He's done and let's move to Tim Anderson because it's another shortstop here who I think has established himself and is GONNA move up eighty P and I know it seems like at some point of has to catch up with him. But what point is that and what does it? What does it go down to? Right? You know we we made the joke of like he can't possibly maintain a four hundred. You're right. So I'M GONNA maintain a four money babbit are you four thirty lives? Is Higher than his on base percentage. Twenty five points and obviously over the course of six months season, they would it would tamp down and not quite be this high but I think it would still be remarkably high and so. How how do we judge him wh? What do we do with dimensions eight homers five steals to go with the 373 average another team that is coalescing and turning into the powerhouse that a Lotta people saw them to be as that in enhances his team context. What are you doing with to manage the next? Is He atop three round guy for you? I. Don't think he should be. Me I think he's got the talent to be. This this reminds me so much of Havi bias when Avi by was having that just break out and but the underlying stars was. just scary Because like there's nothing. There's nothing that tells me this should be happening like the numbers do not make sense. He's got he's got a forty two percent oath swing he his contact percentage while I, mean it's not bad at seventy two percent, but it's not easily. No. No. So he's putting the bomb play at Nick Magical level or Angleton Simmons. Ground. Ball rate is fifty, five percent. He'll. He has a twenty four percent fly ball ray. I just don't. I just don't know that this steam of bowl, but I mean it it has been now for I mean two straight years I just worry that little I. Mean He's GonNa. He's going to deliver some power and some speed The question is really based on the average because I mean I think the average. Fluctuation is why you can consider taking him in the top grounds but like there is that party me. Thanks at some point it's going to dip back down to the to forty that we saw in two thousand eighteen. And, that'll be painful. I really wanted to push back on that but. I. I don't think it's going to go down that far but even to sixty to seventy would be jarring at this point based on what we've seen. In I I mean for the third round you know considering the power and the speed that can come along with it. We haven't. He really dropped to forty. Again I mean that was a two eighty, nine Bab that's things really working against you. Maybe. Yeah I. Mean he was still twenty, twenty, six that year by the way I. think the two thousand Seventeen Tim Anderson is. The Guy. You know six hundred plate appearances, seventeen runs, fifteen stolen bases to fifty seven. I don't know that. I think my strategy coming into next year is likely going to be if I don't get one of those top five, I'm just going to wait again. Because there's so much step there I I don't think I'll end up with him because I already have a shortstop. Taken one of those early, those earlier guys there in the first second round so that I might not even have to deal with with the Tim Anderson Conundrum but. I don't know man I. Don't know if I'm GONNA blame somebody that takes them into third fourth round even though I do have some questions. I still believe in the overall talent profile of just being. Flush with talent and I do wonder or I feel like. Even as the batting average comes down and the bathroom starts to normalize a bit. I don't know that he can't just happened POB. It'd be a thirty homer hitter. I mean with the amount of ground balls. I. Don't think you can do I'm I'm saying that would be I'm saying that would require a fundamental change though yeah. But I think he has the talent to make that change is what I'm saying where it'd be like, okay you know I'm obviously not maintaining these crazy babs here. Let me get back into the in into the pop than I had a few years ago where I was a little bit more of a fly ball poll pull guy and and and deliver that way I don't know I think. It might just believe in the town profile to Manderson the the overall. Collection of skills I'm not I'm not there. Okay. We'll see we'll see how it goes. I'm really eager to see whereas ADP winds about say that for sure. Rafael Devers. Another kind of late surger here where at a point if we'd done this, you know couple of weeks ago he certainly wouldn't have been making the grade as somebody who was backing up his big two thousand nineteen breakout You was toning a sub seven hundred. As recently as August twenty ninth but since then he's absolutely been on fire hitting four, twenty six with a ninety eight. And Five homers. So all of a sudden he is absolutely backed up his big breakout season. He was fourth in ADP at a third base. He's now fifth on the player Raider Rafael? Devers could be a twenty four next year. Do you believe in him as a top three rounder now at some point, we're going to have nine two guys. But I wonder where he come out with Denver's in his twenty twenty, one draft cost I don't know that his draft cost is going to go up. This is been done a little bit under the radar I think yeah, you have. Cheaper, I think it has been and I think the fact that the overall numbers aren't GonNa, jump off the page ill because he's not a guy who's going to get to twenty home runs this year and there will be power guys that that do that and not like he's hitting three hundred necessarily again though he could he could bump himself up there by the end of the season I. Think this one is one divers went twenty first or twenty second in ADP last year or this year. So like I actually think he's going to drop out of the second round into the third and I will be all over that. Yeah I love I. I believe that him coming into this year. Definitely nervous when when it was looking like it was trouble just because I thought maybe time would run out on him. But he has turned it around. And you know I think Boston I don't think they're gonNA win completely rip it down to where they're going to be a terrible team next year I think they are going to use this season you get their high pick but they're going to kind of do more of a retool than a rebuild and they have to figure some things out to be sure but I think that they're they're not going to let these. These BOGART's Denver's and now for do go years and then what they have left of Jd, Martinez of course, go to waste and maybe they trade J. D. or something but I I don't know trade him with what he's owed. Well. The Not. Right now are helps. Certainly helps, but they also don't want to take into the cleaners on it. They might just have to ride it out. You're right but I I, love. DENVER'S I'm open to taking I. Agree with you though that it could be a situation where in price. Doesn't. Doesn't really maintain that goes down a bit in which case I would definitely be in at that point for Raviol- ever. So He's another one I'll be certainly keyed in on to see whereas ADP goes into my first few drafts I might not take him just to kind of see what the market. You know bypass them in in like the beginning of the fourth round is the same does that take later this round or does he somehow make it to the fifth and then and so on from there? So I like Deborah's though let's end with one or two major since teammates. Is. Absolutely. Backed up what he did last year like I said that White Sox team is really coming together and leading the division they've been awesome. They're they're expected. studs have expected stuns they've had a few other guys absolutely go crazy like Jose Abreu you not not only finding the fountain of youth but like. Doubling tripling like returning to a level we'd never seen before the Ninety six Oh bs. Is quietly hit the thirty homers last year and I mean that fully I I feel like some folks didn't even realize that he went thirty thirty one homers. Because he started off poorly got hurt and then just kinda quietly trickled upward to where he ended up with thirty. One is thirteen this year with a three, zero, two, three, four, five, seventy, seven line. He was the fifteenth outfielder by ADP and he's ten on the player Raider whereas you go. He's our ninety seventh guy in the top three rounds this year or for twenty twenty one. What do you think is he three rounder for you? Yeah, he is I mean he should have been this year and I. This is one of those. Situations where I think I let myself be dragged back to the pack by you know by looking at the ADP and going Oh you know he's a great price of the ADP. I can I can get him I can get him later than I would normally rank him out at because I got some heat like ranking over guys like judge in an springer coming into the year and I wish I had kind of stuck to my guns a little bit more. Because I don't have him on enough teams. This year but I I think I think he's a second round pick I. think coming into next year and. You know what I love about him is he's a premium power guy with the batting average. I fully believe in this three to that we're seeing this here I there are just a few minor concerns with swinging strike rate in the swing that makes me wonder if the strike outs will tick up a little bit and maybe dropped that batting average but I still think he's like a to ninety guy coming next year and a mean and with prodigious power on a really really good team like I. I think he can be leak contributor in four of the categories Oh, he can be one hundred hundred as far as Arabia's I. Mean I like I likely will reject him to be like a forty hundred hundred guys next year. Ninety batting and. I still think like his best season which I think would be MVP contending for Jimenez would be like a three, thirty, forty, five, one, ten, one, ten, I don't know that I'm that sold on the batting average I. think there's a chance like you know we talked about the variance of batting average and how it can just you know don't mistake me not projection this is like. In the sky. Yeah Okay Yeah. I could definitely see something like that. In the more and more I think about it actually start pumping down the average but I still think he. Is probably like. Maybe like a two, seventy, five, batting average forty home runs hundred hundred as long as he's healthy next year and I think there is I think that's a you know late second rounder. Yeah, we'll absolutely take that and. I will have will have. Shares. You know. I I hear you on on the strikeout concerns because he doesn't balance it with the tunnel walks and it's not an egregious strikeout. Even last year's is twenty, seven percent for the power that you're getting you can take a twenty-seven percent. He shaved it down twenty three this year I would love if we could somehow get him to that eighteen to twenty percent baby push the walks up not crazy because we see this team Tim Anderson. Imposing walks on somebody does not inherently make them better know if you take them out of what they're doing. And how they succeed I think walks can make them passive. So I just think sprinkling some walks on US makes elite but any as he really establishes himself, he's going to find that teams are going to pitch him as. The same and he's going to have to start to develop that patients earls. He's going to end up swinging at junk and I think he can make those adjustments man I I've been really impressed to see him this year. To, be a little bit careful with the forty percent swing you mentioned that Tim Mansion as a high one as well. So. Again, I want to be clear that the what I was saying was like his best year everything goes perfectly that that's an MVP. Type of dream season, not a projection I'm with you on. To seventy, five, thirty, five, hundred, hundred has a projection. That's not what I would. I would work I. think that is probably pretty close. Perfect. So. All right. So that's a that's a group of guys there that I think have really shown themselves to Make their nineteen believable even in this shortened season and sounds like you and I'll be drafting most of them pretty highly again next year justin it is absolute homestretch time. Good luck all your bidding this week for where you have contending teams left and we will talk next Tuesday. And and good luck man take care.

Local Hour: Marlins vs Cubs Part II

"Stugatz here when you talk to a Dell Technologies, advisor they are focused on you ready to give advice on everything from laptops to the cloud and offer tailored solutions powered by Intel pro platform to to keep your small business ready for what's next call a technology advisor today at eight seven, seven s Dell. That's Eight, seven seven as Dow. Welcome everybody to a very special edition of the David Samson show on a Tuesday mlb playoffs started today wanted to leave Wednesday and Thursday for heat reaction as you know, the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals. But there's another big local story with the Miami Marlins and David I kind of feel really bad for this franchise because this is their third playoff appearance in wild that seems like a weird way to phrase it. How could you feel? Bad. For a team that's made the playoffs never in our sports history has it lined up congruent with an NBA finals at the same time. So while the Miami Marlins are this underdog story for the ages right unprecedented in pandemic, and yet you could maybe say, well, look at the their the run margin look at their actual record. This would never find itself in the playoffs if it were full proper season with the normal playoff set up. These are the rules for this season and the Miami Marlins more than anybody where behind the eight ball because of all the the positive coves they receive. So congratulations to the Miami marlins however. The true underdog story that's warming South Florida sports hearts right now is the Miami Heat because they're in the NBA finals. All have to do is hold on for ten more days and they will be the story and it's just is so reminiscent of any time we'd be having a good September you whether it was oh nine or even five. When we were decent under Girardi and. Just. The always were the story, but we always knew we just had a hold on they'd win it in June and we'd have the summer for ourselves. Until the Dolphin started, this year is just crazy because all the sports are happening at once because of Covid it doesn't feel like. October because the files are on. So it feels like June but yet the MLB playoffs star today. So that feels like October yet it's ninety eight degrees outside. The confusing to my internal clock but what the marlins are saying to themselves as let's stay under the radar, if we can get out of Wrigley and win two out of three, then we're in the division series against either the braves or the reds if we can just get to game three or four of that, the NBA finals her over the heat who have their covert parade everyone will be excited, and then it'll be all eyes on fish and that's what you're hoping for if you're the marlins tall order though the cubs. Are Good team you darvish going to start one of those games and he's been electric this season. How do you like the marlins chances because they have a pretty good starting staff themselves any one of their three top guys can go out there and have a really good performance. I could win you a game against the Chicago cubs but Chicago's a good team as we mentioned, and once we get deeper into the playoffs, you'd better be rooting for Cincinnati because the braves of own Miami this season. How do you like the? MARLINS chances. Well, let's start with the cubs I went through on yesterday's nothing personal every first round series and I actually picked the Marlins to beat the cubs in three games I. Think the Marlins can win this series you darvish the only positive spot the cubs have there the rest of the rotations. Okay. Their hitters have great names from contrary to Schwab Rizzo, by as they're not hitting well, and if the MARLINS can get what they've been getting out of Al Contra out of six. Oh, Sanchez and out of Pablo Lopez, Kessler has been great at the back end of the bullpen. Martinez okay. Got Hitting the ear. He's going to be okay. The MARLINS are not a bad team at all and they're just And I say this as a compliment because that's what we were. No three just dumb enough to think, Hey, are we doing here playing with that type of looseness that can help you win a series? Did you think Brian Anderson would turn into this I know everything is you have to apply the context of a shortened season and we've seen guys sort of drop off the second half of the season but Brian Anderson, I know he was highly touted prospect and then I thought we saw enough of them in the pros to maybe say, okay maybe he's not exactly that but a great year for this year. Now he was I was with the Marlins when we had Brian Anderson and we had him pegged as a guy who has a potential pre arbitration extension candidate and It would have been good to get them done last off season because his price just went up because he did have a good year but he shows he always had the character to be a leader off the field and he always had the talent to be a leader on the field and he's young, but he's growing into that type of leader. He's the player who we thought Logan Morrison would become in terms of we thought Logan Morrison would be the first captain we named as a Marlin we I I traveled with him to visit troops and I, spent a lot of time with Logan and I never could understand what happened because it just the career never. Happened he lost his dad and I don't want to blame that is sort of is anchor, but it just never turn out that way. But guess what Brian Anderson could be that guy he could be the captain of this team going forward. It's a big decision this off season whether or not you try to sign him long-term. You've told us before that you try to get Logan Morrison off of social media and for a couple of years there the name Logan Morrison was synonymous with twitter in terms of a baseball must follow. Do you think that hurt his career? Obviously, you had some thought about that if you were pushing so hard to get him off social media. Well, I just had always told him that if you want to be the king of twitter, that's fine but you better be good at baseball and. Sometimes, it's people don't realize how hard it is to be good at Major. League. Baseball. These are the best of the best not just physically but also mentally. And if you it's like being an actor if you can't deal with failure, you cannot be an actor because you don't get a report you want by any stretch try out and there's no such thing as an overnight sensation baseball's the same thing. There's so much failure that if you don't have the mental fortitude, it can just drown you and everything came very easily to Logan. That's how good he was and it's it's hard to maintain that by the way he still in the big leagues now. So I mean, it's not as though we didn't have a career but worked. So He's had a very successful career major league baseball. But what I'm talking about is we thought he would be premium premium and that's where Brian Anderson is. Now with the Marlins, it could still go both ways, but there's a chance that he is a premium premium player. So you've told us some stories about the the cubs Marlins postseason history with the radar gun and Josh Beckett throw an unbelievable gas in a game that you guys absolutely had to have but we've never really gotten into the Bartman game outside of you admitting the bigger play was Alex Gonzalez messing up a made double play. Set the scene for us. And Elsie. S. Your season on the line. The ball goes into left Field Moi's Lewis Chasing it down Steve Bartman reaches over four but nothing unlike any other fan Moyes who does not help the situation with his reaction an Bartman goes into hiding and the MARLINS end up winning a world series unfortunately for you guys unfortunately for you guys people remember the Bartman but that was a hell of an ending Mordechai. You had so many great contributions from role players that you guys found Kudos to your scouting department. You press all the right buttons, but it's always going to be remembered for Bartman. Tell us about that game. That there's a lot of Yada Yada in there because you went over. So many things I guess I would start with this when you're down to the cubs three games to one back then they had a pitching staff that had Carlos umbrella no mark prior and Kerry wood, and that was the equivalent of Matic's Glavin and smoltz the modern day equivalent. The Cincinnati reds are as close as possible this year with Trevor Bauer Lewis Casino in sunny gray last year the nationals with Sherzer and Strasbourg and Corbin. So imagine last year having to beat Washington three straight times beating Corbin than shirt Zor and then ending with having to beat Strasbourg us it seems impossible and you're three one knowing that those three guys are pitching against you with Jack? mckeon told us and told the guys is I don't care about game six or seven. He said toback just win game five just get us through game five Beatson. Bronco, will get on the plane and we'll worry about Chicago later. So I remember the mentality before game five very clearly, which was we can't win three in a row today it's like when you're down twelve points in the NBA. Celtics did it yesterday's game if I could just digress for a minute when they lost in game six to the heat, they were down with three minutes left down six, seven eight points they started shooting only threes. That's all they did as though they were down twenty. And when you do that, you're trying to hit a six run home run or you're trying to get back into gaming one possession. It doesn't work in Jack mckean was really good about that. Did you notice that what the game or now? Yeah I noticed that I kinda think the turning point was Bam out a bio saying okay. I can just take Thais off dribble I'm gonNA bring the ball up court and I'm going to drive and he can't stop me and I Thought collectively the Boston Celtics sort of said Oh shit we don't have an answer for that bombs away because this is GonNa get to that he wants and he did whether it was him himself getting fouled or facilitating basket bay amount of bio completely took that game over and I thought that the Celtics at that point sort of resigned to the fact that hey, this is something we were not prepared for we hadn't seen this amount of bio all series long bombs away. But you just felt it right you've felt the. On. The air just came out of the Celtics they started chucking inducting total desperation, and when you do that you, it's done the game was over at that point. So in baseball, it's the same thing if you if you're down six runs, you have to know and Jack mckeon really every managers pretty good about this is how to get back into a game. Hey, we've got six innings left were down six runs just manufacturer one. Run. This sitting just what just get on base that's all you have to do that Becca Bekka game always forgotten. It was massive. It felt like everyone everyone thought your season was over you guys were wearing those awesome Sunday uniforms that looked like pajamas with the the big F. and Marlin that I missed so much. What happened those uniforms? He did he didn't keep those around I I think you gave up on those two years later. I don't even remember what happened to those. It's funny. We was an afternoon game and Beck was just unreal having no idea what would happen in game seven when he pitched again having no idea what would happen in the world series but the beginning of his I don't remember Becca pitching. In San Francisco I don't remember Beckett pitching in the beginning of the Cup series my true memory of the oath three without studying it's and. Going back to notes and everything else was started with game five against the cubs real remember moments of San Francisco on the offensive side. Okay. I do not remember the games perfectly. I Have Unbelievable Memories Bread Penny Nascent Schmitt had an absolute battle earlier how good Jason Schmitt was amazing. He couldn't return because he got hurt tour endgame four. He could not pitch on short rest now is massive for Brad. Penny unsung hero of that. Entire run you can make a case for him. I Know Beckett ends up being the SAR because he has the moment and at Shutdown Game Brad Penny if I were to just like pinpoint an overall playoff MVP for two thousand and three Brad. Pennies. As good pick as anybody there's no question. He he had a great postseason and people forget. I. Take Credit because it's fun to take credit for the trade of Ugueth Urbina. And bringing him into the closer he was so done by the playoffs he was blowing saves left and right right in the the play that beat San Francisco on the Great Throw Jeff Cohen that's a blown save by or Beena. It's just happens to be co nine through J T snow to end the game. So he gets the Save, but that was a hit. So it's just everyone was on fumes but so BECA wins game five. And We got on the plane and we were going back to Chicago and we were told and we told the guys that were packing for two series because we were not coming home. We were going to play a game six going to play a game seven and then going on the road to the American League because we knew we wouldn't be at home for Games one and two of the world series. Go to Boston or New York I think Kerry wood was your game six opponent didn't carry would go yard in that game. No Kerry Wood was game seven. Buyer. Was the Bartman game. All Right Mark Pryor was apartment was game SEC. Kerry would did go yard though in game seven, right off Mark Redman. To Tie the game, we had taken a leading game seven and the cubs fans were despondent and then carry would it's a three run home run and I was despondent thinking that that was the end but then we just came back on my mixing up disorders though let's concentrate on the game. When you go back to game six, we're going against mark prior who is the best pitcher on the cups and I had him as the best pitcher in baseball that year back in all three people don't remember. Dusty Baker the current manager of the astros crushed those cubs stars and we knew it all season long Larry Bind Fest and Mike Hill had said to Jack and had said to me listen guys. Prior starting game six. The game plan has to be worked the count get his pitch count up because dusty Baker will keep him in the game and he will get tired. The unsung moment of the cubs series. So three was the first game that Mark Pryor pitched in that series where the cubs crushed us but dusty Baker inexplicably left Mark Pryor in the game and he had over one hundred pitches in a game that he had no business being because we had the cubs had won. And we knew game six just hanging hanging. So game six happens were down. One nothing we're down to nothing we can't. We can't get hit Mark Pryor's just too good. We're preparing for the season to be over I'm sitting there watching the game with Larry and it's just it's done. WE'RE GONNA lose the game. All of a sudden weird stuff happened because Mark Pryor is still in the game and we had six outs that we had left and we just said maybe one one guy getting on base all we need is a blue pin, a bop and something good can happen. When you're in the stadium Mikey the Bartman game was not the Bartman. Game. Only on TV where you get a replay twenty times do you know there was even a fan involved? World live I was sitting in the dugout. It was a regular foul ball to me. Only in hindsight did I realize that something may have happened and that was only after the game you didn't clue into maybe something was different by lose reaction. Didn't even notice it. Really I thought lose reaction was kind out line. It was really unfair to barn and maybe if allure react differently, this whole thing doesn't happen with him. Well, what we did notice though in the stands is there was some sort of when you grow up. Going to Yankee Stadium, which I did. You're used to things going on in the stands during the game there's a fight security goes to a place. There's beer being thrown, right? That's just part of the Game Day experience in Chicago. It's the same thing when we looked out in the left fields down left field line after that foul ball during the exterior. Bad. We noticed Boeing could hear it. We saw security milling around it didn't even occur to us that they were doing anything other than kicking someone out. It didn't and we talked about this after I remember very clearly learning that they took him out for his own security for his own well. We said, what do you mean? What could have possibly happened? was he a Marlins Fan? And then we saw replays but we knew and I've spoken noises slew about this after he had no chance at that ball Bartman did nothing wrong that whole inning got away from them Mark Pryor was in the game to launch Kyle Farnsworth threw a fastball to Mike Mordecai that you don't throw because that's what Mike Mordecai can hit an anyone who sketched the marlins no, you don't throw a hundred down the middle to Mordecai Get around on that and he didn't include the basis. So I mean everything happened and it happened so quickly and the cubs back. Then remember we're in the middle of their curse. So for them, it was as though Oh God here it comes again were done and they were so defeated that going into game seven to to us it, we were going to the world series who hits the ball italics Gonzales the cubs had Alex Gonzales playing shortstop, and that's here is very confusing series because there were two Alex Gonzalez playing. shortstop in that one someone hits a Baugh to consolidate L. Cabrera not somebody Miguel Cabrera was up He hits the Ground Ball tailor-made double-play Miguel Cabrera back when he was twenty years old was not as big as he is now but it was never a speedster. He wasn't going to get that out. It was a Taylor may grandma and Allison's Alice who was a great shortstop, not as great as our Alex Gonzalez but a premium shortstop he just booted it went off the heel of his glove and that was it. We were I was above the Dugout for that and the dugout was chirping. So loudly back then Bill Robinson was dating coach Shu may rest in peace every time another team would make a mistake his focus was that's it. You now make them pay no matter what you do you score when the other team gives you a chance and when that got bobbleheads and everyone was safe. The dugout was just positive that they were going to get it done how? Many role players made a contribution for you guys in that inning was Mordechai Hollandsworth the banks have a hit in that in that inning as well. Now, it's funny because Jack Those were in baseball. We had an expression, the Sunday lineup, and the Sunday lineup was when he used your bench players. If you are a fan, you don't necessarily want to choose to go to a Sunday game unless you have kids because the odds are you're going to see A. Sunday lineup without that's when you give your superstar rest. Especially, if there's an off day Monday because then they can get two days off in a row in Baseball Mondays commonly an off day. So we would say, Hey, it's The Sunday Lineup Jack mckean was famous famous because he would never play a Sunday lineup. He wrote our guys in the heat of south. Florida he did not give one crap through these said I'm I took over this team you're not. GonNa, tell me who to play. You can tell me when guys need rest were not studying their sleep. We're not doing analytics I'm putting out the guys who I wanNA, play every single game. So get in your sweet and shut up, I would go to a lot of those. Sunday. Games at my face would be swollen by how burned I would be. But I love those snapshots days. That was a great promotion. It was it's hot, right? You needed a roof. Butts. So Jack didn't play his bench really at all the role of the bench was to steal signs. That's what Mordechai banks and Andy Fox were in charge of is to steal as many signs as they could that's it and to be ready in case of an injury in case something happened. But listen when when Lowell got hurt instead of playing the bench instead we went out and traded for nine. So it's it's that bench with something else but in that inning, Mordechai was actually he led off the eighth he actually my recollection is he batted twice that eight run. and. So his basis clearing triple double was not a pinch hit because he had already pinch hit to start the inning and my recollection is he made an out although I don't know it exact but I do know that was his second it bad. So it didn't count as a pinch hit. Bases Clearing Double What an awesome game and just seeing the cubs fans cry and and silent what a great memory they were. So angry after game six, they tried to turn over our team bus. Literally, we had security surrounding our butts. Our players were nervous and I was nervous and there was nothing we could do. We were sitting on the bus couldn't move because back. Then there were no cova restrictions everyone was on copy but game seven after the game, it was silent people. were. Just stunned. Love it. This wasn't a history major think that you guys won that series with the department mistake but there was an entire ending that was played and it was entire other game I remember. Okay. We got that miracle in game six. I was still fearing game seven. It was sort of like the heat the rail shot was in game six but there was a tight game seven that was played after that I was nervous the entire time course this. BUCKNOR's. That game six also, I believe the mets then had to win a game seven. Yeah and I believe that the mets had to come from behind an game as well. So isn't that funny people remember though right moment but you don't realize so much other stuff has to happen. So a lot of stuff had to happen to game seven. Jack Did Not WanNa Start Mark Redmond in game seven. What you guys hard Mark Redmond. There is there was no other choice literally and we want him to hold on we were hoping for five. Out of mark who had been really good frustrating the regular season but just ran out of gas he was a lot like the. The Guy for major major league who needs the oil on his on his the older guy I can't remember his name the Pitcher, who who didn't like Serano who said blank you Joe Boo. So that's what Redmond was like. He was really good but he just got tired at the end but he gave up we got him a leading game seven and he gave it up and we were pissed and Jack took them out of the game was furious because at that point he said was why not just go to the world series now we already made it back to three three. He told the guys before the game. You know we might as well while we're here. But Kerry Wood it's a three run shot, and at that point you gotta think maybe this is an art. I was worried that baseball the fix was in I really was because baseball at that time wanted wanted the cubs badly they wanted neither cubs yankees pubs, red sox cubs red sox have been greatest world series of all time because both of them had not one at that point. Three since then they've both one red Sox, I think four and cubs won. But back, then they were hundred year curses. Let's say in the Marlins were just Miami and and they were an afterthought. No one cared even with pudge on the team were Miguel, Cabrera wasn't a hall of Famer there. You know there was nothing and the Yankees were the Yankees. So it was definitely. The cubs all the way and listen I've so many crazy memories of that series and I've spoken to Dan about it I don't remember on the air off the air but the league was so obvious about wanting the Marlins to lose that. Even the National League president who is a guy named Bill Giles was writing a speech congratulating the cubs and it pissed me off so much because he was doing it in our suite at pro player during game five does each league still have a president now? That seems so antiquated at the time and stupid, it's done will. Be on Pires that if you looked at their hats, they'd have either al or. Yes they were league umpires angels in the Outfield Christopher Lloyd would get a hat off of one of the an empire and say, just call me Ow. So that's it and now know Rob Manford in that really under bud but rob Manfred. Is continued that where they're making it with one unified. Game of baseball one unified league. We actually talked about getting rid of the American. League. Once you have a university hr no D. H.. At all, there really is no reason to have a nationally in American league they used to be under two separate charters like they were too literally two separate businesses, the American League in the national. League but that's not the case anymore. So I think when you get expansion you may see a lot of changes into how the American League National League is formed part of this news networks struggled during the pandemic and they're trying to get their numbers. Levin. program. But. I do find it curious that games are popping up on ABC for the first time in decades, a major league baseball has to be happy with this development because more. I. See it on Network TV even though that's not an audience that's UC in baseball is this a product of more games or product of networks need in their numbers? How does this come about? So think about from ESPN standpoint. So ESPN and ABC and ABC. They're the same network and they've got so many series going on at once they want to have as many as they can without sending ESPN news or ESPN part four. And for maybe standpoint they've got the marlins cubs go and the cubs are a great. They're nationally known team because back in the day back when your listeners may have been. Or wgn. So remember the national team's very long time ago the braves and the cubs braves. TBS in Wgn I was sort of simultaneously a braves and Marlins fans the early years of your existence because the braves were just always on TV and I loved watching that team I love their pitching staff. So even though they were division rival I kinda liked them. Then ninety seven came along and I was all about Lebron in the marlins well, but it all changed because then there's this thing called the sun the ticket where you can watch every team wherever you are whenever you want the reason you like the braves is you're watching the braves you're watching your junior high school. And so the cubs have a huge national following for that very reason. So putting them on ABC against the Marlins make sense. Jeeter and mattingly brings star power to the MARLINS. They bring the New York audience because the New York audience will watch the Marlins play either rooting for shooter jeeter rooting against him likely rooting for him. It's not that the MARLINS team is a story but those guys with the story you add that to the cubs ABC says, listen we could show some soap operas or. Let's actually do daytime baseball during the pandemic people are working from home. They're going to have the TV on in the background. There's no reason for them to have to do it digitally online. So it works perfectly and it's great for baseball we got into exactly why there were so many evening and nights arts, Major League baseball because of the regional sports networks that have to make their number massive mistake I understand what what, what happened there you guys could absolutely own the afternoon timeslot. I know that's not a major audience and I know that doesn't help with advertising but. One two games a day in that timeslot nationally, your partners would absolutely aired i. think it was just a massive mistake by you guys especially with the calendar. So congested, you're going right into the teeth of some pretty important basketball games and now with football and basketball happening at the same time I. I'm not really anticipating big numbers for the baseball playoffs. What's scary to me is that a regular season, it's not scary because I've just been a part of this too many decades the regular season NFL game. It's not even close more people watch that than conference final game in the NBA it's incredible to me. Yeah I think you guys your world series. You didn't go up against Sunday night football because he NFL would sort of bow to major league baseball's world series and and not have a Sunday night football game in direct competition with the world series back in the day. Now it's it's easy for them. They don't think twice about it. Well. But but when the same network has two different sports, which happened just with the heat's the reason why the heat had the extra day off when the Celtics series is, they didn't want to have a Monday night football game on ESPN against a Monday night basketball game on. ABC because that's they're the same company.

So we're talking David Samson now, the Marlins begin their playoff push tomorrow against the cubs of Major League Baseball, playoff start now we've had this conversation before and I. Don't. I don't know if you're ready to make rash. Decisions fulltime decisions based off of this weird experiment of season. What did you like from this year now that it played out? How do you think overall what what what grade would you give Major League Baseball for handling the pandemic because at the beginning of the season The season was really in doubt. especially with the Marlins and then the cardinals had their their situation. So tactically, what did you like about the game or the situation to say it was an outbreak there outbreaks What did you like about? What Major League Baseball did this season? What did you absolutely hate? I thought the players surprise me my number one takeaway is that the behavior of the players far out kicked its coverage I did not think that might clovinger of the Cleveland, Indians? Zach. Police of the Indians would be the only two players who would go out and get caught. I assumed it would be constant and the players leaned into their restrictions they stayed in their hotels. Now granted they were hall monitors and guards in the lobby. But even when they were home they behaved and it shows that forget politics with this virus if you do the right thing. Business can continue if you do the wrong thing, business will be interrupted. Baseball is just a metaphor for life, and so we can find a way to navigate this. It just requires discipline and the players showed it and I give them all the credit in the world because without that, this season would not have been successful I loved the rule change for extra innings even though everyone hated it I loved it. I don't like seventeen any games as a team. I don't like them as a fan. I enjoy the strategy that came in tenth and eleventh inning. I love the seven inning doubleheaders I think that lead to more exciting games where you didn't have to see mediocre mid range pitching leaning pitching. And I did not like the university h because I missed the National League strategy but I'll get used to it. So overall, it was exciting I am in three days we're going to do a show and we're gonNA talk about the top seeds who didn't make it out of this first round and how despondent they are because they had no advantage to having a good sixty game regular season. You will see that change next year by definition, the dodgers and the raise would not be playing today and tomorrow come next year. Do you think expanded playoffs in some form or fashion stick around I? Don't think it's going to be the it is. Guaranteed. Guaranteed too much money too much money too many happy owners who have who can sell into this. The MARLINS can now sell into two thousand twenty one is a playoff team. So the brewers soak in the Astros so can the white sox open the padres you need something to sell into as you're starting to sell season tickets and group sales and getting people back post covid. So this was absolutely perfect that baseball did this but next year the number will be smaller than sixteen. What do you make of what the Astros did this season? It seems as though It was going to be very difficult to be a Houston. Astro, this year and then the pandemic happened bigger things took over the front of our mind time pass time heals all wounds. There were a couple of high profile incidents, tween shows and opposing pitchers but they find themselves as a world champion in the playoffs because of all these warped rules at sees them as an under five hundred team correct and under five hundred team in the play offs not performing nearly as well as they did they weren't reinjured though Mike eat don't forget very injured. That's fair and maybe that's all the context that we need. But I I I think someone had a tweet I forget who had the tweet like Oh same gundy it's not as easy when you're not cheating. You're taking astros this year I wanted to respond to stand, but he's become such a twitter Har- heavy guy in terms of his following in terms of its politics. I didn't really feel like getting into with him. But, that tweet was born of ignorance and he's a great guy and he's smart guy. But that's not what happened with the Astros. It had nothing to do with garbage cans any sixty game period out to bake and hit to twenty and Bregman can be heard for a while and not have a good year for land can out Garrick old goes to the Yankees, they lose their Clothes Rosanna, their star Rookie Alvarez rookie of the year is out for the year. So it really had nothing to do with the fact. That they didn't know the signs I just I'm not buying that for one minute. The team is just not good. They're exactly a below five hundred team and that's all they are, and that's because of their personnel, not because of lack of ability to cheats have poured over the injury numbers on nothing personal. Because just look my fantasy team like I couldn't keep a pitcher healthy every single one of my pitchers either contracted covid or went on the ten day I L or was data day every single one of them. Had some sort of injury. What have you looked? At in terms of data, so the numbers were historic and we talked about it earlier nothing personal saying this spring training partout is way too short and there were no exhibition game. Remember teams only played one or two games at the end of the new spring training right before they started the regular season sprint, you cannot. People don't remember this cove. It was an entire off season. Literally. That's how long baseball stopped with an entire hurts off season. You can't just start after an off season start playing games just doesn't work and what baseball did is they were so desperate to get the calendar in game started before second wave or a third waiver fourth waiver, a first wave that they started spring training and what teams did to try to make up for the fact that it was going to be so short, they had pitcher's throwing live EP day one of spring training. It's unheard of our pictures don't throw live BP and spring training for two weeks. They've got bullpens than there behind a cage member went to knock got hit in the head by Stanton comebacker like the first day of Spring Training our Tanaka do. Without a cage throwing live. EP. Day One of spring training. It none of it made sense and the injury numbers more this year than any other year by factor by multiple, and that is something that that hurt baseball very much the marlins twitter account kind of through some shade at Carlos Saint I don't know if you saw this tweets slider low and away. On a young Carlo on Giancarlo strikeout in a big game for the MARLINS. That's a tip of the hat to. Marlins fans at share that frustration because I that seemed to be the pitch that would entice stanton and would always get them to chase. But that was I was curious if you had a reaction to that but you're learning about it for the first time what was the tweet? Exactly it was exactly that slider low away and and Cars Giancarlo Stanton within. To celebrate the fact that Giancarlo Stanton struck out on a slider low in a way that was that was the tweet. Okay so That is interesting and we had a I got in trouble doing marketing early in my career where we did a pretty aggressive marketing appro player where we put other teams logos in the urinals. APPRO player. and. So we would have our fans you know piss on the logos we would do little videos during our games are really going after our opponents in the National League. East and around baseball, and finally the owner Jeffrey got so angry. So. I'm showing David. tweets slider low in a way. The marlins pitching to Giancarlo a slider low in away. Giancarlo striking out and the MARLINS are saying that, hey, we got Giancarlo strike out on his slider low in a way. So that's pretty low hanging fruit. I'm not trying I understand the purpose of that. Sour grapes should not be there because the reality is without Mike Kill. Finding a way to Trade Giancarlo Stanton not once not twice but three times traded him to the cardinals denied giants denied then did a trade with the Yankees. And he saved the marlins franchise because the Marlins were not well. Enough after they had to purchase the team that they were not able to. If they had stand on this team, they had no chance and so might kill. You should thank Giancarlo for accepting the trade to the Yankees. Appreciate my kill by giving him extension with what he did because it everyone's talking about the return the MARLINS got for. Stan. How was a bad trade? That's the greatest trade in the history of the franchise because it saves the franchise because of just the money that they weren't on the hook for that's exactly right interesting up. The Stanton. Thing. I always thought that he was headed to the West Coast. That was he was west. coast. Guy. I was really surprised that the trade with the giants then end up happening What happened there? He said that he felt that they did not have. A winning not enough winning in the short term is what I would say is focused on winning and he felt that. You know for Saint, Louis I don't know that it will ever admit this to you, but he just didn't like Saint Louis right to live. And for the giants, that's not exactly San Francisco's not La Southern California guy nor that's like saying that. You Know Jacksonville and Miami, or the same understand the dynamic although no cal is is beautiful in its own right but it's it's a thing there. So now. It's not so cal and the reality is the giants were rebuilding and are still rebuilding. Even though they came close to making the playoffs and the Yankees are team they have not I think the status, my ripe they have not had a losing season by twenty five years. Is that possible? I? Think they had a losing season. Fairly recently. Did they yeah. I'm recollection that they're five hundred or better for like a period of insanity like decades in any case jeeter's last season I don't I don't think Canadian a series since. Oh, nine. Yeah. I think. I think the attraction last year was hey, just come see jeeter for the last time you look that up though this is Really stretching my baseball knowledge I. Kinda I kinda gave. Thousand Ten. When Stan agreed to that trade, I remember Mike Hills saying listen this is huge for our franchise where they needed to hit on the trades was the yellow trade, the reality, the reality trade, and the Zuni trade and the returns on those traits have been better. The yellow trade obviously is the big question mark if not. Just a bad trade, but getting the players they've gotten has put the Marlins in the position they're in, which is to be good now for stained period of time, and that's that's exciting for all of us down here you're right What was cheaters last year twenty, twenty and thirteen twenty there was. An eighty five and seventy seven I guess when they go when they have less than ninety wins it kind of feels like you imagine you're saying the last time they won fewer than eighty one games while this year. He didn't finish below five, hundred, eighty, one games. Last time they did that it's I have to keep scrolling down past thousand and one but but nineteen ninety-five. So there you go. So it's twenty five years. Wow. That's a hell of a run in that sport ninety, five hours the strike shortened season by the way. So did they finish above five, hundred, ninety, five in ninety five, they were seventy, nine, hundred, sixty, five. Wait a minute that counts. Yeah that's right the year before that the well, no. The year before that was the strike shortened season eight both were yeah. That it eight into it they were seventy forty-three man, the expos and the Yankees that sucks for mattingly because they just started turning it on as he was. Winding, down and won the world series that year after year after being after leaving the Yankees tiring was the final year the year that he got upset by a young a-rod and Ken Griffey and then just mariners team at the at the kingdom that everybody loved. Manley's different guy. He's a baseball player. He's grinder and people forget if he didn't have a bad back story of my childhood was don mattingly's bad back yes. Because he was a hall of Famer when I was very young strobe was Thurman Munson and his tragic. Death. Yeah. Then the Bronx Zoo period then mattingly and mattingly was the guy he was so good and he just had a bad back and you cannot play baseball with a bad back and that was the end of his career and then any never won it can you know a lifetime Yankee he never WanNa rent? Yeah. It always seemed like Lauria Jazz, Love Donny Baseball because of his Yankee fandom and Don Mattingly now, the longest tenured. Manager I WANNA close with your review. But one little bit here on. Don. Mattingly because on Friday I was in a bit of a sour mood the the Celtics had one and on my second TV I, turn my attention to the the underdog marlins at of overcome so much in four years to the day that after Jose, Fernandez passes away there were all these stories that came up before the game that I hadn't known. Really, originating from Don Mattingly's wife that Donny baseball wears a wristband with the number sixteen on it and in the team photos I'm sure it warms your heart to see mattingly rubbing that bracelet up as ESPEC- could in some photos and the emotion of that moment really hitting him differently than everybody else on the team because you have I'm so learning some of these faces I'm still trying to learn some of their numbers given the worm, those those horrible black jerseys. But it was really touching to see and from that moment on I, didn't really felt the connection with the Marlins but I could connect to that moment. And I was curious how you experience that whole that whole celebration and it being four years to the day of Jose's passing. So two separate ways I thought a lot about the marlins clinched and I was jealous. I felt left out I felt sad that I couldn't do it, and then it seems like now jeeter's doing something better than I was able to do or he was able to do something I couldn't do and I couldn't give that experience to the fans or to my kids except once and and. I had these horrifically negative feelings and I was angry with myself for feeling that way. When the MARLINS clenched. Because it's a better narrative for me if they never win anything. And if they never are successful in, that's incredibly selfish. And but I, but I couldn't help it. That's how I felt. and. I. Didn't want to happen on September twenty fifth at anyone tap in it all. Again. I'm admitting this to you. It's like you were in our each other's living revenue points. In human. It's honest I appreciate your honesty there but did it turn when you? Seeing Don Mattingly. So now I didn't want it to happen on September twenty fifth because I didn't want Jose's legacy to ever have anything to do with Derek jeter and his. In his team because Derek jeter has been so awful as it relates to Jose Fernandez what he did to just Jose Fernandez got swept under the way he wants sweet me under it's two different things if you want to get rid of me, get rid of me if you want to pretend I was never there pretend I was never there but if you're going to do that to. Jose. That you just don't do that. Well, you guys wanted to you guys wanted to build a controversial Sacha because Jose wasn't the only victim on that boat and there were all sorts of reports out there that they were seeing out and about having a good time at night and a lot of people in the community and I felt a little conflicted about this I I must admit. What exactly are we celebrating? You're celebrating the man is Cuban heritage, his story, his passion for baseball. But people had a very difficult time sort of. Differentiating the to the circumstances surrounding his death and his story. Yeah. That bothered me always here's why we wanted to statue and we wanted a proper. Plaque and memorial for him to make sure that his legacy would never die and part of his legacy is what happened that day is the fact that there was dry. There were drugs found in his system is the fact that he felt invincible because of what his life was like and what he had to do is the fact that he felt so free that he could do anything he wanted without consequence because he had a frame of reference that. So many that anybody of my. Wife person from New York has no idea what Jose Fernandez went through to become free because I was born free and to a race. That is what we didn't want I want people talking about every part of Jose, his love of the game on the field struggles off the field, his compassion off the field. The things he did in between starts the things he did for his family. That's all part of Jose, and to lose that or to. Derek jeter turn his back on that because he associated with prior ownership and he was so angry about everything it angered me and now. That day, which was day to talk about Jose that days now being talked about is the day the MARLINS ended their plan drought they're back in. So it hit me doubly hard on that day last Friday as a matter of fact, I remember exactly where I was when. Lemay went into the double play because of course, I was watching and I was rooting against them and. The fact that I was rooting against them. I hate the fact that I felt the way I felt and I'm feeling better now but not all the way like I don't want. I it's I mean. I. If they win a world series I'll be really happy for the fans but I will be incredibly unhappy that cheater one have personal relationships though with Mike, Hill in Don Mattingly. What wash over you specifically when you were seeing don mattingly understanding everything that he's overcome how difficult to the season? This is ben how hard he took the passing of Jose Fernandez I'm sure part of view your initial reaction is human understandable. Also sad to I'm sure there are people listening to that like that's not that sounds kind of miserable any bit any any wide I mean it is what I'm only been honest about how I felt right the there's plenty of misery in the human experience I. It's understandable but. Seeing demanding lease face in those photos and him He doesn't. He's not this emotional guy at least publicly doesn't seem like this emotional guy seems fairly stoic and we saw him in a different light that day I was like oh humans. Fans is very emotional actually really yes, and so is my kill and and I'm very happy for both of them and I want them to win I want them to be a part. Mike deserves it. You know he's gone through a lot of stuff over his eighteen seasons with with the marlins and he's a free agent year and demand, and he took a pay cut to come back this year which he didn't deserve to take it in need to take but he did from jeeter and. I want on to win a ring I want him to win a world series as a manager. You know he didn't get a chance but the dodgers. Because they never want except he with them, but they unceremoniously dumped him already to be done with him and it was our lock and I'm so happy that he's I. was able to be with him. He was so great to work with that I that I'm very happy for them sabotage the conflict, right? To one good things for Donnie and for Michael and for Miguel row house for some of the players who we had. But at the same time to so openly root against jeeter. Internally Right that that conflict is very interesting as I watch each game in each at bat and it's it's so it's so it's fascinating what goes on my brain. Does this place look haunted? No, I don't think. So what about those two creepy girls come stain may pass. Truly frightening. It's really Seri Missing Mnangagwa's Great Service with Geico, you get twenty four, seven access to licensed agents. Thank you creepy girls to see her home. Sleep in the car now.

Really, Seri missing a guy goes great service with Geico you get twenty, four, seven access to licensed agents. Thank you creepy girls to see her Sleep in the car now. We switch today for twenty, four, seven access to licensed agents. Well. We'll see how you feel about things next week when we catch up with you again, what is your review for the Week David? Do you have a special guest coming on I? WanNa get close with the Jeff Passan state you have is he is he honest on hold the CNN zoom rooms all right. We'll get to this now jeff pass, and if you listen to last week's episode came up and he's always He's always been a very public critic of Jeffrey, Loria and David Samson and I thought it would be a good idea to sort of have one of these on air meetings. So I could seal the content and and reap all the downloads play you called it. You said Jeff Pass him would not come on and this you also mentioned that Espn wouldn't let it happen. This was totally jeff that wanted no no part of this but he did pass along a a statement are right. For you read it. Let's just listeners. This I've not heard the statement yet I did not know anything about this. What I do know is that for him to send you a statement now when you say statement, do you mean like text dear private cell phone? Yeah. This is a text. Okay. So it's not he didn't actually know said you you can tell Samson this. Publicly bribery. Say. This the next time he's on. Okay I'm ready to hear it because it's be really fascinating I. Think he's a Schemer. I think he sold Miami Dade County of goods I think he's a kind of sports executive who gives others a bad name I think his opinions typically garbage but he does have a great speaking voices and is an excellent storyteller. Statement from one step Nice. So Nice. Thank you, Mikey. Your opinions are typically garbage. That's one that I was like I kind of disagree with that the selling Miami Dade County Bill of goods that would sort of Bang on fair. and. Sensibilities is that what happened is that? I wanted him to respond to is don't tell me doesn't have time because the guy has enough time to go on every show known to mankind. Oh, he has time he won't give you fifteen minutes long he he would love to give me fifteen minutes with me. He doesn't want to give us a fifteen minutes. Yeah. He just doesn't want to. He has no interest in joining you maybe that'll change someday. I'll keep pushing but for the time being it seems as Jeff Passan is not at all interested in doing what we did with aerial who And confronting you but he did pass along that message for me to share with you and the audience and You know it's a little whissy like I. I'm not what he wants to pass it on. Like he said to me Jeff One time. You know why he doesn't WanNa come on because he doesn't want to have to say on the Air Nice to meet you David he did refute your claims. On the local hour last week because you guys said that he's never taking the time out to speak with you or anything like that. He says, he spent ten years asking the Marlins to speak with you and not once did you say yes so I need to pass that along. That may tell you how ridiculous that statement is. and. You can ask anyone in the media. You're telling me that if you're Jeff Passan, you don't find a way to get my cell number and text and say, Hey, let's have a conversation. Hey, I'm doing article. Do you want to respond to that? That is the biggest load of crap ever I spent ten years trying to reach David Sampson, he was on the moon the whole time I couldn't get a cell. He was probably going through PJ lawyer Alot and Matt Roebuck where they did they ever run any interview requests by you were they acting independently. This is something that can happen because I know for a fact I've been rebuffed before by your media relations department where they certainly didn't ask the player. There's no doubt that we would rebuff people before going to a player. There is no way that Jeff Passan is rebuffed with me not knowing about it there is no way apple. Hope number two hopefully one day we can have you on together. He's not interested in it right now but there is. There is disagreement among that singular fact and it's not a disagreement he I've never met. We've never spoken and he's got opinions. He's GonNa call me a Schemer and he's going to say that I sold Miami data bill of goods, and then my opinions regards just come talk to me and tell me where you get this from what was the scheme what opinions were garbage? What is it that we did because he started against US way before the stadium deal? Way before before an if I. Adm, deal called retailer whatever Mike I mean the fact is by the way what network does he work for? You works very SPN exactly what? Do you work for I work for ESPN okay. So the fact that he won't even do it for you on on the network that you both work for shows that he's just scared because he knows that he has no standing whatsoever. Went back all the way to your scheming in Montreal because we had him on a lot when he wrote for. Yahoo sports before he was on with ESPN and he was writing scathing columns about you you in Jeffrey. Yeah. The ESPN thing is recent. We we would go to when he was with. Yahoo. So this is an an espn thing. Well I think your point is, why would any join a fellow ESPN or? Only point you're not the fellow ESPN wants to join. I don't care by e you know he when he was with Yahoo the reason why I don't respect him as a as journalist or he has great sources. There's no doubt about the Premier newspaper in that sport and that. So let's be clear. When you are news breaker, what that means is you have a connection with people at every level of an organization from Central Office Commissioner Down to the training staff of individual teams I understand the point that you're making you could very easily from his connections get your direct cell phone number and circumvent the proper protocol which is going through media relations people. That's all he does is not do the proper protocol to go around in order to get information off the record. That's that's his job fair enough. Let's get your movie or TV, review for the week David Samson who I've agitated with this Jeff. Passan public doesn't agitate me as a joke at people who are of. No consequence to me don't agitate me. So Jeff Passan to me I don't pay attention anything. He does I'm laughing at your statement that he said, he took the time to text you but refused to take the time to help your show which by the way doesn't need help it would help him to go on your show in any case. So it's playoff time whatever Dan you got something to say, you show glass five minutes I do you're looking at me I just I just believe you I wanted you to know that I believe you when you say I do believe you when you say that you are not agitated however the tone of your voice sound agitated. Okay. Thank you. What is your review? Some sort of value added to the local hour with me and Mikey that might tone is agitated. Agitated as we on for an hour and then all of a sudden in like Paulo from the Mountain Dan's voice introducing himself into the conversation. For the fellow ESPN or David Champs what is your review? So it's playoffs for all of you marlins fans the day before the playoffs I tried to do this and I did it last night because it was a slow night and tried to do it before any playoff run even the marlins aren't in it I re watch the two, thousand three, marlins world, series DVD there's a movie that came out that goes through the entire season and it starts where they filmed with pudge driving to spring training the first day. The famous pudge who your own Dan Lebatard wrote was wasted. Sign knows what did I say? What did I wrote it in paradise airplanes something on on according breast implants on court -obably not something in down in analogy would make in twenty twenty. Thank but. But. It really captured the Zeitgeist what was going on. And a half to apologize. Actively a decade later you know, let me get out in front of this right now I am sorry that I said that the Padre is one year signing that the Marlins were so bad that it was like putting breast implants on a corpse it's a good line, but I shouldn't use yet. You have done like dental work on a court I guess. Brazilian. Wax would have even been. Okay. You should just like I don't know if there's ever a compliance on the video that Disney sends out on what you can and cannot put on a corpse, but that's probably not one of the items that you should be putting on quits ironic. The apology tour the Dan will now have to go on is there is no statute of limitations. That's a seventeen year old column. As written five minutes ago. Internet is forever. So you review is the two thousand and three marlins world series DVD which is great and I've watched this play. Is. What's about it is that they film all the teams why would they? Go Film pudge driving spring training the Marlins went oh, three started nothing. There was no chance they were going to be in the world series, but you never know so you had you had a camera crew following all thirty teams and I remember because I did not think about it when it was happening at the time and then when the DVD was screened to us, I said Oh my God. This is so amazing how smart were they, and of course, they were doing it. With, all thirty teams, but it goes through the season it goes to the clinching. It talks about chose Jack mckeon, and how special some of those games were reminds you of what happened during some of those games, some of which we cover today, and it's not very long but just the music of it, the the the celebration of it and realizing that Dontrelle Willis and Juan Pierre and the happiness they felt and looking at a young Miguel Cabrera and Jack mckean's turning ninety this year. And is still healthy and working out every day and just realizing moment that we had in south Florida and wanting to create that again that fuel. So that's why I'm rooting for world series again, because that moment when you win a world series for a community, it's awesome. Well, you'll be honest with us as we go through this journey together about what emotions will feel because the initial reaction was one of jealousy. and sadness. So we'll see what you feel after this cub series Davidson host of nothing personal. This was a really good episode. We got into the two thousand in three cubs series in honor of the playoff matchup that's kicking off tomorrow really enjoyed our time with you and Dan thank you for making yet another appearances like three straight from you, Dan. So thank you so much. We'll talk to you next week David. I install I found an advocates curse. Is are just very lifelike. WHAT DOES IT head? Keep Spin. Scary.

I need your help and setting this guest up because it combines two things that we love you love baseball and I love the Magic Castle. WHO's joining us tomorrow tomorrow? Marlins catcher Tyler Heineman will be joining us. He's auditioning for the Magic Castle so we we want to talk about that so he was a September September call up for the Marlins last year and he has a passion for magic and he is trying to get into the top secret society. That is the Magic Castle astle you know the local hour recently has been obsessed with the magic castle so we're combining the best of both worlds and he should be an interesting person to talk to. He's trying to get into the thing that we were given with an opportunity to be in but we're big time celebrities we were using our power and influence. He's a major league baseball player right and he has to audition in in front of God knows who you know. It's just I get emotional. Whenever I talk about into this and I'm wondering why you're not into magic yourself like why you are not trying to become magician to get in? I don't like magic. Wow I could see you being a magician. Who could possibly you look like almost like a David Blaine? Well thank you. I guess I am into the David Blaine Staff. The dude levitated. How does he do you you tell me he probably has something underneath the train myself to advocate and for a while I got like did you train yourself to levitated so so you don't actually levitated? It's all about making yourself. Look like you're levitating and tiptoes yeah but like it's an extreme tiptoe and you have to so how to use shadows it's dark arts but and you have to do a really quick. I don't know how the Hell David Blaine does it. It's amazing. He actually levitated jumped. Don't you did jumped right or no what I did was I would stand on one tippy toe but you wouldn't know it and I got high and make your body. You can tweet your body in a way that didn't make it looks like you go a lot higher. In the you're actually going and you use the shadows to make it look like your toes aren't on the ground. It's all very didn't do this. In Public Dejan Oh man in in school I was a kid who levitated wow also I can inhale through my but another thing that you would do get any data to see that no need to don't kids if you're out there and you come across you can do this and you're like I could be fun at parties his they'll never let you limit town did this at a party. I mean it's a secret talent of mine doing right now. Actually inhaling not just the surrounding air. I was thinking about yesterday when you bought that you recently bought the Party's resigned Raiders Jersey of Antonio Brown. Yeah what would you do with that patient piece what did you end up for those that don't know I bought a signed Antonio Brown Jersey Eh after he had been cut by the Oakland raiders because he took over twitter and it was a really funny social media media thing and he'd never actually played a game for the raiders so I thought man it'd be really funny. Get a Raiders Antonio Brown Jersey and Darren Revell tweeted out like this website that had his memorabilia marked way down. I'm like you know this guy is potentially hall of Fame Wide Receiver. This is a very funny part Jordan his career. I'm getting a hall of Fame Receivers Jersey for seventy nine ninety nine. I'm jumping at this chance. Darren rebel didn't tweet out the link but through my thing you know producer background I found the website and I was very proud of myself because I had got one over on everybody and then bleep hit the fan well then a couple of hours later he signed with the Patriots. I'm like well hall of Fame Career Still on course and then the bleep starts hitting the fan and before I even get my jersey the all this stuff comes out about Antonio Brandon ease even cut from the Patriots two days after in the mail I had forgotten about it. I opened up this package and it's assigned Antonio. Brown injures is so I got it as a conversation piece for conversation that I no longer want to have so I'd quite honestly I don't know what I'm going to do with it. I think I'm just GonNa put it on a shelf love and waste away I can't I can't frame that now especially now if he gets his name cleared of everything and there's a thorough investigations and even more thorough reporting and I'm satisfied with the fact that maybe he didn't do any of these vile things and he somehow gets back back into the NFL not even if he gets back into the NFL just be clear to the vile things then the worst thing he did is just maybe fart in front of that's the worst thing that he did then Dan well. I think if the worst thing that he did was throw furniture off a balcony and narrowly missing child and I saw the video it was about ten feet. Did he see the child child. He didn't know but that's on him. Bad judgment allegedly that the conversation piece stands because you know I knew about the furniture thing before I bought the jury so I was willing overlooking but if he's cleared on all those things potentially this Jersey can have like a very tiny frame it was going to have a big elaborate frame and now I can't. I only have one frame Jersey in my house. You guys collect any sign memorabilia not yet I figure in my new house. I'm going to have like a room that I might be able to do that type of stuff freud. Do you have any memorabilia no nothing at all though I got signed Zola Jersey's a great Italian player that played for Chelsea Zola Oh like a website that sells things no Zola Z. O. L. Zola Dot Com beautiful registry and online wedding registry wedding planner retailers Ola heard that name before but that's not what this jersey is blue and white hearts because it might be. Are you sure you didn't by a Wedding Registry Jersey. I'm looking here or certain cool marlins moment onside it was the last game of the season. What was the cool moment at Martine Promo? Yeah I was kind of wondering about it's odd I I honestly learned about it. From my friend yesterday. sturday apparently at the last game of every season the last few years since the marlins never don mattingly allows a player to essentially manage the final game coach coach right bench coach and this year it was Miguel Rojo so for some reason the last game of the year Miguel row house was like acting manager late in the game Martine Prada. WHO's been a staple April for this team? Last year has been a staple. I mean yeah. He's just like the veteran leader on the team gets interesting because people don't like like you. I think a lot of people don't like put that much much thought he's been hurt right but like entire time. Apparently it's a lot more emotional for the team being it every day and apparently he's not going to resign. He's he's like a U. D. For the marlins right on the phone but it is like you laugh but he in late in that game in Philly. Apparently he's not resigning so this was a known thing that's going to be his last game as a Marlin and like in the middle of the one of the later innings Rojo's went out to make a pitching change but made a double switch so it essentially became a final sendoff four Martine product and everyone was crying. It's one of the things that you like to mock but like didn't he hit a home run. Maybe earlier in the game. I'm talking about this lame. I just saw the clip of castor was bench coach run which I think maybe the first time we'll marlins bench coaches hit a home run in a game also set a career high for holding one of those things that I kind of wanted to mock but dude everyone Miguel Rojo was crying starling this strange thing about the moment to me it was that the phillies fans it was an away game it was in Philadelphia and the phillies fans like I guess because of the fact that it took so long caught on that something was going on so they gave him like a standing ovation as he was leaving the field yeah he got tired career in the NFL stray right yeah but what so the way that they did it is they send out uh they sent him out he was at third base and then they went in for like a pitching change or whatever and they brought in a pitcher so he was like the only one on the field 'cause all the other position players didn't really go out. Is this a lamest standing ovation and they all the players and cry Cheer Grooming Tips. I just kept missing Martine Product. He that's what I think. People just haven't been paying attention to this team. He's been on the team. I don't know exactly how long I want to say maybe four or five or six at this point and he's just been the leader the entire time and it's been tough times for the team I'm with you and he hasn't even been in the clubhouse all that often. He's been hurt a lot hurt. You're are still with the team really I mean unless you're on assignment at the very end of your he's been in length injuries as like they call it. The the I L. Now I tend to be with you that I was unaware of the emotional attachment he had and I don't even know if a lot of fans felt it but obviously in the locker room they did because I was blown away. You Watch this video you. I don't like everyone's in tears you. I'm speaking from a naive place. I was really that's why I thought this was interesting. Has You know the players have this feeling towards him and I feel like a lot of fans. Were just like Oh really i. When you asked me about Martine Prada with Marlins I'm like they send them to actually a pretty hefty contract and he got hurt the entire time they couldn't even in trade this contract like he was only been here for as long as he's been here which isn't even really that long? It's probably just like four years. He started in his first season two thousand fifteen. I'm telling you in two thousand seventeen two thousand eighteen injury riddled season you watch this video. You'll start and you'll be like wow this is pretty cool. I didn't know this was coming but this is pretty cool. I took away from it all right so we covered that happened Sunday. I only saw two days ago and I was just like wow this is like. I feel like it's worth mentioning what will asset David San coming up next ex-davis. Samson probably poops Martine Brata Stugatz here. This is supposed to be an ad for advance auto parts but they're not selling anything they are offering to test your car battery battery for free which is good because winters on the way car batteries don't like winter they get cold in lazy just like me and have trouble starting so think ahead swing by advance auto parts to test your battery for free. They'll even install a new one if you needed advance auto parts thick ahead advance. I'm pretty sure newhouse might be haunted. What makes you say that the furniture is gravitating on the ghost? Welcome home yeah. That's that's what's really scaring missing out on Geico for help with homeowners and renters insurance GEICO makes it easy to save bunch great. You're not sticking around the bar is just getting started. uh-huh cul today and see how easy homeowners and renters insurance can be it's Thursday in that means typically David Samson days and as we just he's going into that break. David Samson now joins us for the David Samson show. Thank you so much David for joining the US real quick we were just discussing Martine product here and he got a standing ovation and it was very emotional in Philadelphia and I have checked out on your baseball team since he betrayed south Florida with that trade with the Blue Jays so I was unaware over it I was unaware of this attachment that there is more team team product. Why am I stupid and naive? Do you remember the press conference. After Jose died the day he died. Who is at the day no I don't want it was me and mattingly and Martine Proto and Michael so martine product was the leader of that team back after we acquired him? I can't remember I think it was fifteen from the Yankees and he's just been a leader in the clubhouse on the field. He's an amazing guy who brings a clubhouse together because he's able to take the clicks. The Latin clicks the the Caucasian clicks. The African african-american clicks every click and he gets along with everybody so he was a great person to have on the team. He just had a lot of injuries body broke down and we offered him a four year deal while Jose was still alive and we didn't pull it after Jose died and because I didn't think it was the right thing to do and it wasn't martines faulty someone we wanted on that team and we had an oral agreement for a four year deal and we could have walked away from it but I didn't feel that it was the right thing to do. In Two Thousand Sixteen uh-huh okay let's switch gears now to your movie review and then we have a movie question from yesterday's show that I saw you weigh in on twitter but I what movie are you reviewing today so I had the best eighty two minutes of the day yesterday and I watched a movie called between two ferns the movie which is that galloping actress who has a show on funny and die or funny or die. I don't know what it is. I can't remember the conjunction diet or die so this is a full feature length movie and is a talk show host who get actual celebrities playing themselves and he interviews them and completely absurd ways so I'll only give you one question and it's to Brie Larson who plays Captain Marvel Marvel and he said Sir. Hey you know you're a very private person and I really WanNa respect that privacy during the interview but before we start I'm just curious. How old were you when you got your first period and he absolutely cracks up? 'cause she playing Brie Larson. They have no idea what questions the character executive. An actress is GonNa ask Will Ferrell was in the movie as well feral. It's brilliant comedy. It is him at his best since hangover and I there was not one minute of the movie that wasn't entertaining. There's a motion to it. There's comedy to it. There's no drama it's not you know we're not exactly splitting the atom here but if you want eighty two minutes on Netflix of absolute pleasure than watch between two ferns so I actually finished this movie yesterday today and I think when I saw the trailer and I heard that they were making this movie I'm like how do you make a movie about that. Like what sort of plot do you surround. This and I realize is quickly that it doesn't matter what the plot is they. They don't even they don't even really care Zach Galifianakis doing the between two ferns bit and I enjoyed it. It was very light and pass spy very quickly. I thought well feral was my favorite part of the entire movie but it wasn't crazy about it because I thought you know those. Those videos are actually like the perfect length now as watching a montage of it. I thought that John Hands stuff was good. I enjoyed the outtakes but everything in between I didn't much care four but it was it's fine. It's a Netflix straight to netflix movie so my expectations weren't super high so I think they met them. Well two things movies that goes strikes in that but you have to start are changing your mental attitude about that really good movies are going straight to net flicks now and that's we've got El Camino coming out October eleventh and that's the breaking bad good movie yeah and the Irishman David has one hundred percent on rotten tomatoes and that's going to be a netflix movies with Scorsese Deniro Pacino and patchy with that's that's the one hundred seventy five million dollar move that I can't wait to review because they made everyone young. That's better than plastic surgery what scores as he did on this film. He actually made she ramiro younger all right so I want you to weigh in on one of the conversations that we were having yesterday which was mean Chris cody who sometimes gets caught brought up in the air and gets out a little too far ahead of himself says liar liar is a top five movie of all time to which we said it's probably not even a Jim Carey top-five five movie of all time so what is your top five. Jim Carey less look like just tweeted this and now you're GonNa make me remember it but I do know number one for me. You will always be dumb and dumber because I will never forget the first time I watched that movie was the day before a marathon running and I fell out of my chair laughing and hurt my ribs. I was laughing so hard and I can still watch that movie and laugh at the Brilliance of Jeff Daniels who can be dumb and dumber and then in Tequila Mockingbird Bert on Broadway and Jim Carey number two is the Truman show which people misunderstand. It's a serious movie and it's a really good movie with Ed Harris and Jim Jim Carrey and Laura Linney and it's an absolute must see there are people who haven't seen it which blows my mind then he did a movie called man on the moon which is the Andy Kaufman Rothen story and this is when Jim Carey was really at the height of his talent he portrays Andy Kaufman who is a very complicated realized character. WHO's at a complicated life's who people think may still be alive somewhere but he died young tragically that is my number three and then the remaining of my top five? I can't remember what I tweeted but whatever I did did at David Samson does that has to be eternal sunshine of the spotless mind love that that should be in my top five people didn't like that because they wanna Jim Carey to be this just chest dumb and dumber guy but in the old days before he became sort of a character and a cartoon what she is now he was doing serious movies and doing them really well. You had Bruce Almighty eighty in your top five and not aura so eight censure. I saw that before I lived in Miami just like there's something about Mary I saw before I lived in Miami me so I saw those movies for the first time now and I saw the like like even scarface. I didn't live here for that so it changes my review review of those but Bruce Almighty me anything with Morgan Freeman where people learn having power is not all it's cracked up to be and that sometimes people abuse his power and sometimes you get what you wish for it and then you wish you didn't get it. Those are interesting movies to me so David and a lot of other people tweeted me about my list because I didn't and have eternal sunshine or chairman Sean there because I haven't seen them in. Everyone was like more so than eternal sunshine. Everyone's like you need to go see Truman show right now so late last night actually started it and I got through about half of it before I fell asleep and I the first twenty minutes I was getting angry at every character in there for being a jerk and not telling him what was going on on and once once introduced the character of the of his like love I guess because I haven't gone through all of its own ruin it but the lady that starts like you know letting him know what's going on then it started coming together to me and I started really getting into it and I really feel like I'm GonNa like it but yeah so the Truman show I feel like through half of it. I'll admit it might he cracked the top ten I will I will give you a Chris. I just want to say that you can't watch a movie for the first time that's twenty years old and ask us not to do spoilers. That's just you talk through that. That's true I I am sort of embarrassed this because there's only been like less than five movies that have moved to tears. Eternal Sunshine of the spotless mind is one of those films that has moved me to tears. It's surprisingly emotional. You have to suspend disbelief because it's sort of set in an alternative have reality where certain technologies available certain technologies available to them that isn't available to us but it's actually beautiful film about the whole adage. It's better to have loved and lost to have never loved at all so that's sort of what that movie is about. I don't know if it's up your alley giving you your sensibilities but it's a beautiful film real quick here. I see other movies that make you cry well. There's a toy story sequel. which which is the one with the evil bear yeah? That was the one that made everybody cry. I haven't seen four yet but three as a tear jerker three me cry and White Fang Whoa Oh yeah you remember the scene where Ethan Hawke is telling wiping. Go Get out of here. Get Out of here why go where he's trying to get him out of his life for the good of White Fang and why things are sad dog and wolf but he's like I don't WanNa go and and he's like get Outta here go and he goes that made me cry and then I cried again. White pain comes back. I'm a dog person you cry Marley and me because your dog I have now watch Marley specifically because I know what's supposed to happen Marley and me no thank you don't need and you didn't cry with at the he ended field of dreams or bridges of Madison County no and I've watched both those films S.'s. I'm disappointed in your cry list because shows a lack of emotional depth that I actually thought you had Chris. What's on your cry less? I cried during the nutty professor. The scene where Dave Chapelle is on stage aged he starts making fun of him get sad and it starts zooming in on his face and everyone in the whole place laughing at him not even lying legit that dude. It's so sad childhood right that means found some connection points. I mean maybe maybe that's maybe there's something there but I just made me sad. Hey you're you're used by. CBS sports like a sports expert business and baseball headed into now. The Wild Card around is do I know this is about TV dollars but this is obviously the longest season of any of the major sports and I'm starting to use air quotes on that because I'm really worried about about the future of your sport but a one game sample size for these wild card games seems really stupid to me at least make it a two out of three three 'cause that's sport. You need a sort of larger sample than just one game to determine who a better team as hell. Even your seven-game samples have a bit of a flu penis to him so I I was a part of the decision to make it one game instead of two out of three and I will tell you that it was supported very seriously by the TV partners Major League baseball because more people watch when it's a winner go home situation like March madness or like the NFL playoffs sway random game two will not get the viewership that a game seven. We'll get as an example so there's something amazing about these one and done games and the second thing it does is it rewards teams who over the course of one sixty to win their division. I love loved the fact that the cardinals won their division. It didn't have to play a one game playoff to to get the division series make every game during the season matter don't throw away away games in April and May and pretend they don't count and then lose the division by one game so I think that these one game playoffs actually accomplish everything that we wanted as an industry industry and actually I think you're gonna see more of them going forward not fewer yeah I get what you're saying about like essentially one game a game seven but if you even just make it like a three-game aim series look. I don't think a game is meaningless because someone's facing elimination and a game too so you essentially have like potentially to game sevens with game one essentially being game six six. I just for that sport. I think it's a crime to have a one game sample. You remember early on in my life. You may not remember because I'm older than you the NBA okay first round used to be two out of three very far back and the problem with Toyota three right and Tuesday the limitation game but they just found that it was not enough time in the NBA to have a series developed so for me. Two out of three is the worst possible series like even three out of five is a little light I would be in favor of is going to best of seven both divisions series. LCS The world series and shortening the regular season to one hundred and fifty four games and adding another wildcard team. That's me the combination nation of things that I think would maximize interest in but one thing at a time all right David. Thank you so much for giving your time. We'll talk to you next week looking forward to see so you got three of its Civic Zana Thug in with you on Thursday to a good voice man to do voice work like announcing or something well. Thank you very much. I mean if it's like Morgan Freeman but more affordable Dominic Foxworth is in with us and you're going on get up. I can tell I can tell by your outfit and this is something that's been on my mind for a week. I've noticed I noticed that the people on get up dress away that the be our live people dress for their soccer coverage. There is a budget for the getup wardrobe that I think would really if the news got out there. If like a media reporter actually got his hands on what this budget was it would be. I think it would rival certain league rights sites. You want to know what it is. Yeah we all get credit card and it's unlimited. Just get what you know. Because everyone sort of matches is this. Everyone has the same aesthetic except Paul Finebaum but even he's got like the designer like prescription eyewear so I mean there's no budget for you you just I think the rains have been loosened a bit in which you can get away with on that show as opposed to other shows where it used to be kind of like you gotta be tucked. Dan You gotta be button. You might need a tie. Get up I think with Jalen rose when they first started show Jalen rose just show up there in street clothes and he you set the tone and then Greenwich started tone it down greenies wear sneakers and then I look over there like hey yea. That's what they're doing that. I'm coming. I'm coming with some flying. Also Greenie actually like has those suits in his wardrobe. This isn't someone that's picking these outfits out for Greenie because he's got some really dapper cool looking suits like green and electric Blue Maroon south that I didn't think he was capable of on his own surprised you Greenie. There's a TV greedy not TV now al-anon. You'll get a really good show you guys do. It's a bit of a take fest and it's I when you're on the sound like an insult. Oh well Kinda back handcock and I everything's Italian like I know what this industry is. Even when I'm a browns sounds fan. It didn't feel so great but I saw that's where this is coming around. We got a lot of but like it's just it's very very reactionary and you got programming to fill and you guys do. It's so well so there's two hours every morning that we must spill with content and people are waking up. I think the the spirit of the show as you want it to be fun and you WanNa grab people's attention because if someone's getting dressed for work we want him to stop and watch for a SEC and exclamation point in the title yeah there is so it's not that that's the motivation for why it becomes somewhat of a best but I think on win Wednesday's in particular when me and Ryan Clark there. I think it's a lot more fun like to take still exists but we give it a little bit more fun because this Wednesday like Monday. You're just coming off the Games Fridays. You're about to go. I went to the Games but Wednesday all his fun day boy. Yes there was a bit of a gang of situation that I noticed recently on gang on again made about gang gang. When you try to teammates they did well 'cause that's sort of what happened? which is which is someone in the background? Akron just scream and say what you mean you mean Paul with the whole Cam Newton Glorious Day. I think that Ryan Clark should the employee of the month for September for all of Disney has Ryan Clark had a great September highlighted by that Moment Ryan Clark is also one of these dudes that has an amazing wardrobe except up for that huge bow tie that was amiss dude rarely missiles. I also see that as amiss but I mean you're GonNa do great. Sometimes you gotTa shoot for the moon and sometimes overshoot their puppy. He overshot it that day but he might start his friend. Will he ever admit NA. Ah Is there any. I don't think he believes it. I think he believes that all of us don't we don't have the vision. That's the thought when you are visionary like that. You're like this is fly. Oh you lame ozone know what it is Dominic Foxworth with. NFL Brethren of Ryan Clark at Secondary DB's and also is there any part of you that thinks he saw for not actually claiming in Denver because you revealed to us that you also had the sickle cell trait and you played for the Denver Broncos and he was just merely visiting there and he's like I can't pledge so do you ever give it to them. In that regard every day I do now we actually talked about it recently and he said which I didn't know that something actually happened his blood actually started in order to sickle and the altitude which I didn't know what the thing I thought that you had the trait or you had the disease but I guess you can have the disease and he had like full blown Z's Yeah I guess only an altitude though yeah so. I didn't know that I never had that issue because that's incredibly painful so I I'm not calling you told Oh me like one time. You kind of started feeling symptoms that were so I I didn't know what the symptoms were. There was one game against Cincinnati where I was playing nickel and safety not which look at me I shouldn't be you should not but I did and I had like fourteen tackles many of them onstage Benson and after after hey said recipes dude was a load all right guys and after the game I was at my locker and I just started losing my breath and I couldn't catch my breath breath and I don't know what happened and I just like it was Kinda scary and then all the medical staff came over and Blah Blah Blah but I I mean it was no diagnosed. That's not how football works I I got up. I could walk and so next plan so no one took my blood to figure out what was going on so I don't know but that was the only time where I had like a weird occurrence because when I landed in Denver the first time I was draft everyone's like you're going to have to adjust the altitude get acclimated. I didn't have that I did. I worked out on the first day and I was like normal. There was no follow follow up like you just couldn't breathe unknowns like maybe we should check into that like the next week year just like good and then Tho that's it. I got other stories like that. Man Responsible Imagine hasn't there are a lot of people who have more stories like this but I and when I got traded to Atlanta we played Denver and Eddie Royal got me on a crack back block so take color were scrambling around and went left so I ran a little left and he came back right so now I come here say you ever ever suffered in the NFL right. I think that yeah probably that's the worst pain I've been in where it hits that I delivered the worst the pain from a hit that somebody else was that one so eddie royal and actually thanked him after the play he blindsided me but hit me in the shoulder this was before people were like coming after blindside headshots gave me and I hit the ground I got up. I started coughing blood. I mean as as one does I coughed up some blood and I was like it and then I can't play and then we got off the field theories I went to the trainers and was like I it was coughing up blood and they're like still happening so I started coughing and it was saliva and they're like no you it just like that. It's pretty much it was I mean that's football. You're actually touching on some of the things that I got oddly passionate. I'm so I listened do it. I got oddly passionate about this. Montas Perfect Jack Doyle hit in which people are explaining to me that I don't know football and how things can change and I it's Jack Doyle getting off the ground. There are a lot quicker things in that sport and I'm finding myself getting really upset. People that lead with the Kremlin helmet and I think the Eddie royal hit is an an example like it didn't always use to be this way. I get mad at actual technique so tell me this in the secondary. When I see like remember the Stefan digs the huge who could forget it the touchdown to Vance the bike Williams mistrial right and I thought he missed a tackle in large part because he was going for just like a blow up hit and his head was down where if you just wrap a person up warren players wrapping up anymore why are they why are they why would they weren't? They just put on some film Amount Union army and play the game the right lightweight wrap up for their tax the ball head up so would you had a child you just automatically became an old man. No I do think like when University of Miami tackling technique that's not there anymore because people are just going to absolutely kill people and like when I played football and my experience and playing football is super super weak compared to everybody else talk about it yeah yeah he didn't like it. No it hurts but when I when I was playing the end I would like try to I would number one. Try to pay attention porn because what they taught me so that's how you protect yourself and I'm not actually like trying to hurt the other person in football p. Sometimes it seems like Montas perfect especially. He's looking to maim people okay so I the Williams play against. I'm digs. I actually thought the issue that he had there was he was eyeing the ball and he was not going for the hit like an and maybe I just missed remembering this but anyway that's neither here nor there little secret guys football all trying to hurt people. That's a real thing right. Wow I didn't know that but you can hurt people like without leading with the crown of your helmet right. I agree that's effective leader owner people by wrapping. No one's ever got hurt. I WRAPPING UP I. I think that we talk about it and maybe the conversation locker rooms have changed because it's been a lot of changes. I was a player too now but conversations. It's like you want to make them pay this defensive thing offensive linemen are like yeah. We want to make them pay receivers. When you get a chance to crack back on a safety you WanNa make them impair? You WanNa make them think twice about coming down aggressively for the run you WanNa make them think twice about catching the ball you want to make them think twice about doing anything on the field that is not at all to absolve avant perfect 'cause things at times have changed perfect put his helmet down and put his forearm up and was going for his head now. That's something that we would the helmet down. Part is the issue but everything else we wouldn't find with if he was standing up. I give joy was standing up the problem was he was getting so. I think Montebourg has a history with an exclamation summation point. He was get up but I think it's his history becomes a bigger issue so like I can understand. I think it's difficult for some people. Many people are different. I read an article this morning about about pre game rituals and I saw some players who listened to like really low key mellow music and I was like I know guys like that's weird to me because everything and football is about excuse me emotional. We're getting choked up coughing up blood and everything football football. Is it saliva. Let me check yeah part so everything and football is Bislett and it's like it goes against your like instinct so like to hit somebody goes gets your instinct so it requires you work yourself up for someplace someplace at least to work yourself up to like a mental frenzy which I've seen plenty guys do. I've got to that point before where it's like. I actually don't like those guys and actually hate those guys and I I really want to do harm to them and then you're asked to turn that off in a split second when you get to a quarterback you have to like roll off. Don't land like that's a difficult thing to do. That's not mix use anybody but it's just meant to like explain it. Yeah the that one is really difficult to wrap your brain around. Have you ever been angry. I know you as someone yeah yeah have a temper and you probably have lost your temper before yeah imagining imagine being in that state and let's say hypothetically 'cause I know you would never ever find anybody. You are about to get in a fight and you pull your first back. You bought the punch it and then you have to aim it accurately to not hit him in the head also you don't want him in. I right like it's a difficult thing to do. Maybe I'm just built differently because like in football. I didn't WanNA actually like her. People I just wanted to the point to me wasn't to get to hurt them. It was to get them down on the ground without hurting myself so even in the last fight that I was in. I like pull back on a punch because I'm like if I punch as hard as I can. I'm going to break this Dude Sean. I don't WanNa do that. Though what kind of man are you. I'd just I was just like I'm just trying to teach a lesson. I'm not trying to like you know. Send you to the hospital all but you've never been in altercation or in a state of mind where you just complete rage yeah. I've no no not that not like. I'm going to destroy you. Physically rage perfect lives in any other state right but everyone's such a nice sky. They just showed it right here on the screen as his jogging off the field. He's like smiling. What is it that had to do something with the League to look look he's running off the field like taunting what's different about vantage perfect because he clearly came? I understand there are certain situations where do turns his head. This is certainly not that his history is certainly certainly not that. I'm all for eradicating people. That can't play by those rules. It's this is this is life. Shit like what I think. It's I agree with you on all counts but I do think that I don't know what the what the twitter with the listeners are telling you on twitter but I do find it kind of disingenuous for you to be this upset about this particular play while also like completely comfortable with everything else. There is about football because the research doesn't support necessarily that these hits the problems. No research doesn't really like to get off the line snapped sub concussive episodes like time and time again like so oh all of this is pretty bad and there's nothing to say that would want perfect is doing like it's it's uglier in the League wanted out because of the image presents which impacts their money not not necessarily for player safety. It's ugly. It's more offensive. I think the problem is it makes you forces you to confront the part of the game that you want to pretend all of us want to pretend it's not there. No it's a great point in that because the optics of some of what happened Antonio Brown like those absolute kill shots what happened to Josh cribs with James Harrison which is still. I I think the most vicious of those hits that I've ever seen I just assume watching at home like Oh that's going to cause and not just the repeated repeated of course of a football game where do just blocking going face Massa facemask somebody. You're telling me that there's no real science at says the collision in that one hit it actually causes more C. T. than the repeated a slight clanging of helmets. I don't know unless there was some study that came out recently that I missed it or the most information that they have is they don't really know they know that football. There's a higher currents of CT people who play football than just normal people and there are our links from that to LS in early dementia and all that no one really knows whether it's getting crushed like that. It's just the fact that you're every day you're you're exposing yourself to car crash. How'd you get yourself in a rage for games? 'cause like that's the most interesting part of this free because like you idea something to write about one point but but then they were to write which caused a lot of work and I am on it but I do think is an interesting thing that like to expose people to that process and it wasn't something and then I was capable of doing all the time and became more and more difficult as I got older and understood the business of the game and like got to know that all these guys are more or like me than other but like in college like I remember we we were good at Maryland. I know it's hard to believe because they're not good now. Did you go to the the game at I'll say where you guys are honored. Ralph region loss to Penn State fifty nine zero. Yes and it wasn't good way to honor Ralph region because James Franklin the coats have Penn State it was on that staff when we were really good so we s we properly honored him and I was there or the tailgate and the first quarter and half of the second ECHINACEA layup we're good. I didn't mean to take you off your train of thought. No I was thinking Virginia. We lost them. One year when we shouldn't have and then the next year they came ame into our place on a Thursday night game and that's one time I remember like not knowing those guys not feeling like I had a real issue with them but I really like if there was if we run into them out I would've tried to hurt them. Same thing with Florida would've tried to get your hands around match shops neck absolute like I'm like homer. Simpson Choke Smart Florida state so our freshman. Oh my freshman year we were undefeated. We ended up winning the ACC championship undefeated going into Florida state and if we beat them we definitely would have wanted. We're losing that game but pre-game. We're at the middle of the field. You know that that scene where he middle field you're jumping and you bought like I remember said. FSU Dang Horse Yeah Oh yeah. This is the lower that Damn Oh. I got to watch it at the good with the self editor yeah I just remember there's a couple of times and also in an NFL just being like work yourself up to be like I really want to get to this person and you just and you put everything out of your mind because when you're on that field it's like it's true when you're like nothing else matters at that moment like as much as you love your family or as much as you care about whatever bills you have or whatever issues are going on outside in that very moment. There's nothing you can do about any of that. All you can do is what you can do on that field right there and and it's like this whole brotherhood component whereas if I don't get this done if I don't not just do offer offer this path. He's going to get to my guy. It's a real thing that I'm sure everybody can can relate to so you would personalize it like you'd pick specific people because I imagine here's the thing I find it hard to believe in crazy that your life for a time was I need to get crazy angry and just hit people as hard as I can and and then you need to just get out of that mindset as soon as the game's over like you needed decompression time so you don't take that with you throughout the rest of your life so the next day you get up for practice and used to do it again and you're just building up a week's worth of anger and hostility towards people but not full speed a practice just kind of go. Do you need to waive Sunday. You need to work yourself up into like these little patterns of like crazy rage to just do harm to people and then you need to just turn it off and just be like inevitable personal. Yeah you know I mean it's a real thing I I said I got worse and worse at doing as my career got went on so you basically meant that Anthony. I guess that doesn't really solve world for both actors often. Take the role home with them and I mean who's the comedian. Did you like who you were when you were playing football. Let's talk about you know. This is a serious question did because I imagined to work yourself up like billy was mentioning. It's an excellent point. You have to work yourself up like your psyche is at a different place than it is now when you're playing that it's harder turn it off but it's like played a plague your regular life. You're here and you need to get angry for three hours of football and you're hitting people as hard as you can. Try to hurt them sometimes and then you get home and with your family and that really needs to be gone. I didn't have a problem with that as what happened. I dropped a deck of cards a deck of cards that we need to save for tomorrow's at Chechen. Keep going. I know we were we were getting there. I was under the stuff like I shook like he was composing himself conversation. Really it's like there's like a four percent say he won't cry but there's like a four percent chance I could make him emotional and thank you for breaking yeah. I I think as I got older I had a harder time so if you imagine that your natural state is is closer to one end of the spectrum other as I got older. My natural state was more on the calm side and I had a harder time getting myself you couldn't fake. It couldn't couldn't force yourself to be someone that you naturally weren't i. I mean I did on occasion but I found it more difficult so I never had the problem and I think that some people are on the spectrum and I remember the comedian eighty you guys had on her. One Time said that like sometimes football players do football yeah Neal Brennan near Brennan outside and that is a good description of like what it is you you and I think some guys rest closer to that state and it's easier to get there and and we can't be necessarily shocked when things happen off the field. How much heavier were were you? When you were playing a lighter? You were lighter so wait because like I think asking someone like you to tackle Michael Turner Right now and I'm sorry to use that that as an example I don't mean to tap into that highlight that he put on you but he was a big guy. I think just like lower bodies right because you would probably have to try to tackle Michael Turner and I think he's lower bigger than his top half so it seems a little counter intuitive like that man. I Shit really hurts. It looks just unfair. It it you just go really fast is what I mean. You use what you have. I was fast so I would go really fast. Why people are like leading with their head? Maybe maybe I mean I think it's instinct also if I were to jump at you like you're going to curl a little bit and I think the thing when you go into a hit to curl a little bit is not instinct to like stick your nose. I kind of think what's happening happening a secondary with lighter players because I looked at some of the injury data and secondary players actually deal with more broken bones than any of the other positions I think it's because of Komo they're built so I think players are in a weird sense trying to protect themselves by actually leading with their head because they don't want to actually wrap up because hustle break their hands or break their fingers or break their arms. If you have ever been around like football players something that you know is never give a football player firm handshake always go with the damp or always go with the soft handshake or the fist-bump because all of them have terrible fingers throughout the course of the season yeah everyone's hands and fingers are hurting so little inside for you don't try to impress a football player by squeezing his hands especially not. NC's what if it's Adrian Peterson though and I've heard about his reputation and I need to hold my own ground here he's not human I'm in now. I was talking about human football player. Not Superhuman Age football players. I Adrian Peterson who like is the strongest and fastest human to ever put on a helmet. Did did you like laying on your friends. You're playing against them because you don't want your friend to get one over you right so like. I wonder if you if you enjoyed not you never injure your friend intentionally Ashley but like you like laying a good hit on your friend over some of the you didn't really have a relationship with right. I'm sure those practices Maryland where the wild west where you can do anything in those practice not in practice like in a game you're covering someone who is a friend of yours and you're like no. You're not going to get one over on me now. I don't have friends and even on the Maryland team well Oh yeah maybe but they were only a defensive guys. Okay so you didn't mind like knocking out who is some of the wide receivers on that team actually remained. Probably my best friend in college was a receiver Steve Suter suitor and I don't know well in college you go through everything and their their times where you're going at each other and your intense but you also build a bond whereas like us against them mm-hmm in the dam is coaches especially during training camp and so you're like let's make this look good. We both need to go back to these Shitty dorms and sleep on these debates. Let's not make it worse on each. Let's look good for them and keep it going. That was more the spirit than anything else you WANNA stick around for one more segment and take some phone calls on the lower. I would love to take some phone calls on the lower all right Chris. You're the fake sound the breakdown if we all right and we're back and we're back as a quick break pick up these cards you can pick up the cards. Let's go out to the phones and give the people the opportunity opportunity to actually speak to Dominic Foxworth if they want or just like just have general banter with Dominic Foxworth. Can I call you Don Dante Foxworth night into into that Dominic Foxworth with us. Let's go out to some phone calls. Let's go out to Frank Frank. You're on the air frank pretty good. They look celebrate. You have another baby this week. I thought about a couple of things things that you've reminded me of number one the most dramatic lie ever told to you as a kid so get the right now thinking thinking about it but when I well I appreciate it when I was a kid this was before a DVR everybody nobody knows but my mom told me we were about to go. Watch a leap of the mall and my mom told me Abou- Oh man that's a shame as a real shame of felt like we were going there and can we see you know what let's start the segment off. We just got one nowhere with Frank. No I thought he was getting them. Of course you would yeah all right it was that I think we lost MC Foxworth. I started getting up. I'm supposed to go and get up at nine. I'm about to go okay so if you just go do that we make lucidity a here man. You do look pretty good although a little shiny that's all I need a little shine goodness all right you want me to show you. The powder is here. I think we can let me it may help yeah. Does anyone know you're doing get all the doors. was that door closed. When you walked in here okay so there are people out there dominic foxworth everybody we were going to get them to be emotional and then you spilled the cards at my bad sorry about that guys this radio all right panthers season kicks off tonight the puck drops on the panthers season tonight against the Tampa Bay lightning the bolts the team that set the set in NHL Record points right and then I had an embarrassing sweep in the first round and so they are coming with revenge on their mind a goal of not embarrassing themselves once again in the postseason great fan base out there in Tampa right Roy yeah yeah sweet? Why didn't they have a great hockey families but not a baseball fan base because the champions Oh well yeah also the proximity of the Renal they've had a success but so is the Tampa Bay rays baseball game in terms of like Tampa Bay proper that stadium that that Tampa Bay plays in is terrible the race play in is terrible and since they Petersburg is far away from the popular center of Tampa which is actually just called Tampa? Tampa Ebbe is not an actual place region right so the being well yeah but as a little kid. I always thought that the city was called Tampa Bay. There's no city call Tampa Bay. Hey it's just it sounds cool with the sports teams. I've been to that baseball stadium. I mean it's it's not like the best thing I've ever been. I don't know why but I've been in there as long as we actually have a decent in stadium like a lot of fun stuff going around. I'm with you that it's not the nicest place ever but I don't get why it has such a bad rap like to me. It's just a stadium. It's not like Oh my God. This is a dump on Never Watch something here. This is horrific but no I'm with you. I agree with you. I I've been to the trump and I think it's it's fine. It's not like the newest stadium but it's not a dumb. It's not like the worst stadium I've ever been to a refurbished hockey base. Is the Thunderdome okay. Have you ever ever been to a game there. No unfortunately it's not bad it's okay like I don't know that you're going to get a ton of people to go to a game at an open air but it's also projects Jackson Gabbert. It's also about forty minutes away from where most of the people live in yeah so it's just I don't know why the people in Saint Petersburg are getting out there and why it's not registering during other than the actual sport but Tampa Bay lightning is a franchise that is hockey crazy town yeah the lightning absolutely run that city believe it or not. They've even had a frozen four out there. The place is hockey crazy beautiful arena right there in downtown Tampa and they're champions base know. They've proven that the sport can work here in Florida where the Florida panthers probably proven the opposite. They should probably stay away from here. I saw him part of my take yesterday. The audio got sent to me that the guys at PMT were saying the Florida Panthers are legitimately the most forgettable franchise in all of these just like the the Panthers Florida Panthers about that and it's just like you know what wow they exist. Who's just they were just having a realization like they're still around they? They haven't moved to another city to having relocated. They haven't done anything. They have a good fan base. Oh do they not a panthers. Don't they have a nice little niche crowd up there that like the the panthers make that argument you could make that argument about any team. The Miami Marlins have a very arted passionate base of fifty people that go to every game came and live and die with them the panthers due to that the people that scream read during the anthem. I was at Duffy's last this week and there was a preseason Panther's game about to start and there was one table it was filled with like eight people all wearing panthers jerseys niche crowd. I take that back but like they they have a nice fan base as and if they're good to get people there I mean you could say knits cry because the Sports Niche Yeah Franchise. I've never recently recently. I know that they won the cat lanting that one time but I would really like to see this franchises never had sustained success. If they make the playoffs they make the playoffs for one year and then they lose out on the playoffs and are five points out of the playoffs for several years and then we'll get right back into it and you're like okay. This is something exciting young team and then they'll bleep the bed so here we are again with this team a finished almost five points over the final playoff spot and here's what I'm willing to tell you here's my prediction and this year for the Florida Panthers obviously but Brodsky's here everyone's excited about the panthers expects them to have a much better season as do I so here's my prediction for the Florida Panthers this season they will finish three points out of the final spot this you you heard it here. First is the worst preview for teams opening night ever like they're going to be two points better the last season they'll still make the playoffs and this this other yeah. They'll still miss the playoffs. Another podcast said that they don't know who they are so the goal is we are no longer going to finish five points out of the playoff spot that that is the old panthers. This is Hashtag T. N. P. The new panther WHO's in their division Roy Tampa. The Canadian teams Detroit and Buffalo are coming in second in their division behind Tampa there. I said it I'm good at prediction. What I got? I got third division or making a wildcard spot. What are they gonNa make make the playoffs? Let's seed would that be if they come in second division that will be so divisional playoff hockey hockey's wildcards and there's a metropolitan apart and winter. There's a Metropolitan Division here. Here's an idea one through eight but just have savings that are one through eight for the love of God hockey ever since could change that it's been really hard for me to understand it. Oh wait so divisions matter but if you finish in the top two you're automatically and they're even if you're worse than the wildcard the way the second what wait we're putting an emphasis on the divisions in divisional rivalries yet all of a sudden Detroit's in our division and we've never had any sort of rivalry with them. What is going on here? Hockey fix it. the path is going off Chris. They finished second play the third place team vision and if the division winner it's up with the highest points. They'll play the second wildcard. I've noticed this so roy is the only person that gets he said it and it was just like the teachers in unlike the peanuts cartoons like every every year. I try to teach myself this and since I've done it and we're going on like seven years now where it's been like this and I'm just it's like just google. Teach me. Just show me the standings. It's always such a to-do hate it. Let's go out to the phones. We go out to Oh cool cool. You're on the air a cooler subra. Are you guys doing and and guys. I'm going to talk to you guys about this. New Wrestling Company called eight E W and this company minutes decent Madison's but it will never ever ever compete with the W. w. e. it will never do it is never gonna be never another. WCW Is never going to happen again. Just going to be stagnant. I love cody. Rhodes love Chris Jericho. Kenny Omega is Great. They own butts are great but it can't compete bill your thoughts I saw that it looked like yesterday on. TNT rightly Wednesday night dynamite it it looks like tnt up just had them scheduled for like the entire day like I was pointing through the channels and it was like ten thirty and I saw it said eighty he w and then it just had like an end like I didn't even see the line when the program ended so it's a two hour show but they just keep repeating it over and over. I think Barsa enter certainly yeah Champions League that night but I guess I just kept replaying it. I saw this and I'm not I'm not invested invested in this and I'm not like super informed on this but I saw like you can click different categories and there's a sports category like for the week and I saw the. TNA is on again like that. They're trying to impact okay whatever it's called so they're trying to make that a thing again yeah so like wrestling fans. It's very excited about this new wrestling like every single day yeah Friday night smackdown debuts on Fox so we're GonNa go I know that they're putting a lot of money and the effort and time into that debut episode seems like a tough ask will never watch live but dvr like I think it's GonNa work and Fox's putting an emphasis on live programming. You know there's a lot of people that aren't going out on Friday nights food. Maybe they're trying to make a family friendly. I'm not sure it's off topic but last night when we were talking about how good good they look on. Get up and look at the suit that Dominic Jacket before look I blew him really surprised at Dominique revealed that they're they're in charge of their own wardrobe. Why because it all match? It's like I think it's all provided by the same people the look aesthetically all like lines is up manufacture human pride mentioning how good Greenie looks like it could just be Greenie. Dude that a personal thing not get up related. I'm sure they all have people that help them pick you. Have you watched you've watched live right when they do the Champions League coverage and there is absolutely absolutely a directive were GonNa make people look like Baristas from the future and everyone's Henkel's must be showing and it's really you like. It's almost like like it's very abrasive to me like they're. They're just like so over the top with it. The v necks are going so low and the the Capri pants are going so high to the point that I think nothing's going to be left but a belt at a certain point and I kind of feel like I have to watch the credits forget up because wardrobe provided by and then I'm GonNa go on that website and I'm GonNa get down to the bottom of all of this because I'm not entirely sure he was telling us that we should have greeny on this. This company wouldn't have a wardrobe like he's on there a couple times a week. Maybe greenie would have something like that but everyone everyone that appears on their like Orlowski is not going to have that I or another one that has like I'm telling you there is a rack there that gets refurbished like every week that's provided by sponsor and they have measurements and they make it work for peace. I bet there was just an email sent out. Hey if you're going to be on get up you better bring yeah and then that was just kind of a message. Sent and message has been received yeah. Oh we still have call their Cole. I found a really cool because I did watch a little bit of it and I got aboard real quick with it but I found it cool. The Twenty Shabani was back on on. TLC Man Tony Shabani Voice of Monday nitro. He's on he's on the commentary they are so that was pretty cool and then I wanted to see what wwe was doing to combat it and I got like really into a match edge that they had with Adam Cohen Matt Riddle Mike Okay. This is much better. An infant Ballard got sent back down and so I'm like okay I'm rocking. Ww I'm just not into this aid because like everyone like Knox wwe production value and then eighty w does it and no one's like criticizing how low rent some of this stuff looks and how many mistakes they make definitely now. you know I grew up listening to Jim Ross we all grew up listening to jr now all of a sudden you know we all group within the voices of our childhood when it came to wrestling you know and now I think that he's really doing his best work right now in aws. He did his best work and in the late nineties early two thousands yeah to their what's his best work Tony Shabani great work with Nitro back in the day great great work doc you know but again the product isn't really there so it's not there. It's not it's not the nineties anymore. You know you can't have war anymore. A war is going to happen and once the Monday night wars isn't gonNA happen. You know all right. Thank you so much for the call. I think it's probably we did a little too much wrestling there. Thank you for that that will

They finished with the third overall. Pick back to back in last place finishes in the National League. What are your what? Were your thoughts on this season. As a whole I thought overall a good year for the Marlins it a good year too two they put a really really nice draft glass together that I'm sure we'll get to at some point here and I think that was the most positive sign I thought the trade deadline was a huge huge win for them bringing in some big additions to their system. Like Jesus Sanchez and Jazz. Chisholm I thought they did a really great job with some of the moves they made and there are some positive developments on the field was nice. To see is on his way up to the majors he had an a
