Bus-size asteroid to zoom by Earth, ducking below satellites
"The size of a school bus zooming by Earth tomorrow. But scientists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, say it'll be a safe pass and doesn't pose any threat. The asteroid is believed to be between 15 and 30. FT. Long it's expected to travel 13,000 miles above Earth Service at its closest point. It'll also end up near satellites orbiting about 22,000 miles away from the planet.
Tesla, Inc. Held it's 2020 Annual Shareholder Meeting
"Pandemic. It was like a drive in movie there was an outdoor stage with the audience in parked cars. For weeks. A big announcement on better car batteries was promised. However, Tesla's stock collapsed. It closed down 5% yesterday, and it's down another 3% in pre market trading at the moment. Marketplaces. Kristen Drop is here. What did the Tesla boss say about these new batteries? The plan is for Tesla to manufacture its own batteries to improve vehicle driving range in power. Tesla currently buys batteries from other makers, and if they're produced in house, it'll bring the cost of the cars down. Right now, A model three. It's cheapest vehicle is $38,000 Musk is aiming for a $25,000 price tag. So why did stockholders get on their phones and start pressing cell? Well, The manufacturing plan for these new batteries isn't done and we won't see them in Tesla's for a few years, which means right now, Musk is just making promises, and he's known for over promising plus. The announcement fell short of what investors were expecting. Musk spent the last several days playing up what he would unveil on what his team branded Battery Day. Shareholders thought they were getting something called a million Mile battery, which is good for at least 10 years and would allow Tesla to price it scars below that of gas powered cars. And remind us about all this after hours premarket trading when the NASDAQ market is
Tesla unveils $140,000 Model S Plaid that can go from 0 to 60 in under 2 seconds
"A new Tesla model that was announced by Elon Musk yesterday in Fremont, California during a big annual shareholder meeting. It's $140,000 Platt Edition. And so I said, Who's going to drive a plaid car? Right on? I went to go Look for a picture. Not a plant car. It's it's the name for the power train. It's going to be on the car. Uh, it's gonna have a range between charges of 520 miles. It's going to get from 0 to 60 in under two seconds and a top speed of 200 MPH. Price tag. 139 9 90. Just under 140,000.
Bus-size asteroid to zoom by Earth, ducking below satellites
"Right? So there's one that's said to be the size of a school bus, and it's about to zoom by Earth. J. Pl says. The space Rock Is between 15 and 30. FT. In sized based on its brightness, at its closest point early tomorrow morning, is going to travel about 13,000 miles from above the earth surface, putting it inside the ring of geo stationary satellites.

Tropical Storm Beta slams Houston with heavy rains, flooding
"Story along the Gulf Coast all summer long. He's been one hurricane after another. Well, we have a tropical depression here, Beta Made landfall late Monday just north of Port O'Connor, Texas, basically between Houston and Corpus Christi. It was a tropical storm now a depression but either away parked over the Houston area and dumped enough rain accost flash flooding in several areas. A city submerged Houston underwater cars and trucks branded on miles of flooded roads. Tropical storm beta making landfall along the coast. Then lashing southeast Texas barely moving raining. Non stop like this, which even during a moderate way, cannot absorb all this water by is overflowing their banks. Some areas are inundated by more than a foot of relentless rain. You know, CBS news correspondent Janet Shamlian is in Houston. Where, Yeah. Bye. You watching? There's a big thing when those heavy rains come, That's how you gauge it down
Boston - Signs For New Massachusetts Exit Numbers Will Start Going Up In October
"Bob Dylan said the times they are a changing In Massachusetts. The signs they are a changing highway signs. That is, the federal government mandates the change so that exit numbers are based on mileage. All of this will take time. State Senator Jamie Seer has been working on an exemption for Route six on the Cape. Saying re numbering those exits will hurt businesses You advertise based on those exit numbers and whose tourists come year after year, For example, exit to one Route six will become exit 59 from from the hyper tech savvy, downright lot. I They all use cell phones to navigate with a lot of information that's already contained on it, including distance by mile. This just clearly represents Policy that one look closely doesn't make sense. If states don't comply, they could lose federal highway funding. The old and the new exit numbers will be displayed for awhile.
Tesla unveils ‘truly revolutionary’ new battery
"Noon noon business business hours. hours. Tesla's Tesla's says says It's It's developed developed a a new new kind kind of of battery battery cell cell that that there there are are some some questions questions surrounding surrounding it were joined by Paul Hochman, the president of Humongous Media and the former tech editor for the Today Show in Cambridge, Massachusetts. So What's going on with Tesla and batteries Pole. Um, that's that's a great question. The answer is everything. Ah, this is battery weak for Mr Musk is concerned. In other words, he's announcing it does annually new technologies promises things that may or may not happen, But nonetheless, it's now been proven a bad idea to count him out and specifically. A whole bunch of patents have been applied for Ah and won the most sort of interesting everyone, at least technically, Ah, Most people think the police technically difficult and that is a tab. Tabb, the connect existing Tesla batteries to the motors that run the car and the pat believe or not, the thing that conducts electricity from the battery to that those motors in the car in some cases for them. Is actually a very technically complex thing to do, And what he's done is created. What they're calling a tin battery. And and what that means is a battery that looks like a 10 and it basically direct energy from the battery to the motors. Without that half If he can pull that off Sounds like a basic thing. But if you can pull it off the manufacturing cost of Tesla's plunge And result is his profitability goes way up. So that's one development. It's pretty exactly well, anytime you've got a connector involved in technology of any sort that can often be the weak link in the chain. But despite this, how are things looking? I mean, can we Can we say at this point is there's still a lot of reason for optimism for Tesla or is is this or other issues leading to some concerns? No, no, no. I think the optimism is fully enforced here and again, You know you have your playing seriously interesting onto your but one of the reasons for that optimism is because one of the other things they're thinking about doing is removing cobalt. Mom what is currently in an n A or nickel, cobalt, aluminum, electro, her battery, And here's the thing. If you do that, you cut out a hugely expensive component. So once once again, the tab goes away that reduces his costs. You take out Kobol. People are concluding experts are concluding that the kind of battery that he would make in its place. Which is nickel, manganese, cobalt and nickel. Manganese battery would actually be a 1.6 million kilometre or one million mile battery. Something that ostensibly at least on paper would last 75 years. So this another development is really and all going to be in the United States doesn't want to depend on Panasonic. So in a nutshell. These terror factories that he's considering making are going to make him independent and much more, much more profitable. Now. Batteries, of course used in a lot of things is any of this technology that that musk is developing with Tessler is that also cannot be used today in Elektronik devices, phones, tablets, computers, anything else. I would urge you to think bigger because the answer is yes. In fact, one of the biggest changes that's going to happen when it comes to power delivery generally, and not just in devices that you hold in your hand. But in homes, one of the biggest challenges of solar, which is proving to be very, very efficient in getting extremely inexpensive. Is once the sun goes down. Obviously, there goes your source of power. Well, if you have extremely high efficiency batteries, a couple of them sitting next to your house, all the excess energy that was developed by that panel is now stored for night time news. And he is absolutely selling. That is a very high profit margin device. There's $4000 batteries being sold by Tesla right now that you confine them in stacks if you want next to your house. Store, the solar energy generated and now run it completely off the grid. So homes are the next big Ah, the next thing you know,
Boston - Hurricane Teddy To Stir Up Wind, Waves On Massachusetts Coast
"Hundreds of miles out to sea in the Atlantic, but it's really whipping up the waves. That high surf advisory continues through tomorrow. But now we have that wind gust advisory through 11 o'clock tonight for the Cape, the Islands and the South Coast. Now these wind gusts not sustained winds, but the wind gust. Could get to about 65 Miles an hour. So that's just what ah shy of hurricane strength. Really. It's getting pretty close, and that probably will bring some tree limbs down. We have those dry conditions, and that inevitably could mean some power outages for those coastal areas. In just about an hour under an hour. We're going to start to see that high tide coastal flooding risk that will continue for four hours until six o'clock tonight in those coastal areas for the rest of the week. Beautiful its fall in the seventies with sunshine. Maybe hitting 80, though for the warmest day tomorrow.
40% of Hawaii's beaches could disappear by 2050, study predicts
"Could shrink by as much as 40% by 2050. Because of rising sea levels. That's according to researchers at the University of Hawaii. The team also looked at the impact of beach hardening the building of seawalls to unnaturally retains sand and maintained shorelines. Studies show they can actually accelerate erosion, Scientists warn. Almost 25 miles of beach on Oahu could one day disappear.
It's the Little Things
"For want of a nail, the shoe was lost for want of a shoe. The horse was lost for want of a horse. The rider was lost for want of a writer the message was lost for want of the message the battle was lost for want of a battle, the kingdom was lost. Small things can have reverberating effects on history both good and bad. In fourteen fifty three, the great walled city of Constantinople fell it had withstood sieges for eleven hundred years. It had held off fire from the then state of the art cannons for weeks. The Byzantine said even Ford soldiers trying to tunnel under the wall autumn Turks were finally able to overrun the great city because someone left the door open. One of the many gates in the fourteen miles of wall had been left open during the night and the Ottomans flooded in. Killing Constantine the eleventh in the battle and bringing an end to the eastern Roman Empire. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. It was a freezing Christmas night in Trenton. New Jersey during the revolutionary war. The English Colonel Johann Gottlieb Rall. Commander. Of a mercenary infantry regiment of fourteen hundred has seen soldiers from Germany sat down to a good supper and an evening of entertainment. He and his men were celebrating their recent victories over George Washington's volunteer army, and of course, the Christmas holiday. Safe from the bitter cold and the pelting sleet inside a wealthy merchants home that they had commandeered. They relaxed safe in the assumption that no one in their right mind would possibly try to cross the Delaware River at night in a blinding winter storm. Someone challenged role to a game of chess, and before long he was deep in tactics and strategy. There was a knock at the door. And exhausted young. Messenger boy came in bearing a note from loyalist farmer. It's important to remember that about a third of colonists still consider themselves to be British and didn't want the revolution. Raw paid the boy little notice took the note and put it in his coat pocket without opening it. That pocketed piece of paper would cost him and the war effort nearly. Two hours earlier and ten miles away. Washington's men had begun being ferried across the icy Delaware. River. It took over ten hours to get all twenty four hundred men over to the New Jersey side. The conditions were so adverse five men froze to death. Then began the arduous march to Trenton in the dark. The plan had been to attack the town from all sides before dawn, but the troops didn't arrive until eight am. During the attack which lasted only an hour forty of the German. Henson's were killed and the remaining thousand surrendered. Colonel was mortally wounded. When his body was found the unopened note warning of Washington's crossing was still in his pocket. If role had read it, he would surely have had his gross of professional soldiers prepared. He allowed his pride and the weather to lull him into thinking his enemy was not a threat. Had he won the battle he may well have killed George Washington James Madison James Monroe John Marshall Aaron Burr and Andrew. Hamilton The. Second, most common premise in alternate history circles behind what if Germany won World War Two is what if the south one the American civil war? Two pieces of paper dropped in a farmer's field almost brought that about. Confederate General Robert E. Lee. Whose statue in the middle of my hometown of Richmond, Virginia has recently been given the historical context. It's so sorely needed. In the form of tons of. Graffiti. Issued Special Order one ninety one during the Maryland campaign before the Battle of Antietam. In the order lead divided his army, delineating the routes and roads to be taken and the timing for the units to reconvene. Adjutant Robert H Chilton penned copies of the letter endorsed them in Lee's name. Staff. Officers distributed the copies to various confederate generals. General Thomas Stonewall Jackson in turn copied the document for one of his subordinates, major general, D H Hill who was to exercise independent command as the rearguard. A Union soldier Corporal Barton W Mitchell of the twenty seven. Th Indiana volunteers found two pieces of paper bundled with three cigars as he marched across a farm in Maryland an area recently vacated by Hill and his men after they had camped there. The order provided the Union army with valuable information, concerning the army of Northern Virginia's movements and campaign plans. Upon receiving lease lost order. Major General George McClellan leading the Union army of the Potomac proclaimed. Here is a piece of paper with which if I cannot whip Bob Ely, I will be willing to go home. He immediately moved his army in hopes of foiling lease battle plans. When Lee heard a copy of special order one, ninety, one was missing he. He knew his scattered army was vulnerable and rushed to reunite his units Antietam Creek near Sharp's Berg. Lee's troops arrived tired hungry and many were sick. The Battle of Antietam, would go down as the bloodiest battle of the American civil war with casualties recorded as twenty, three, thousand dead wounded, which was usually as good as dead or unaccounted for over the course of the half day battle. That's nearly two thousand soldiers in our one every two seconds. When night fell both sides ceased fire together, their dead and wounded. The next day Lee began the painstaking job of moving his ravage troops back Virginia. Here, some scholars argue another solitary decision had far reaching consequences. Despite having the advantage. McClellan. Allowed Lee to retreat without resistance. From his point of view, he'd accomplished his mission by forcing Lee's troops from Maryland and preventing confederate win on union soil. President, Lincoln however thought McClellan missed a great opportunity to potentially end the war three years earlier than it ultimately would.
Backup Is Not a 4-Letter Word
"If, you've ever seen Dustin Hoffman in the movie the graduate. You'll recognize what I'm about to say. He received sage advice for his career in just one word now remember this was the nineteen sixties. That one word plastics? Will I have just one word that should be at the foundation of your backing up an archiving strategy automate Absolutely automate. So I'm going to be covering a few techniques today but at the heart of the process for your backing up in archiving and I will make a distinction between the two you need to have as much automation as possible. If indeed, you're truly going to have a system that is up to date in liable and all that good stuff. Now, in my case, I have I cloud in dropbox I cloud grabs, files of that are on my neck or that go into photos, and that's a lot of files I have the big plan to two terabyte plan and all they have to do is pay the. Bill once a month and I'm good to go. I don't have to think about it. Any further than that in dropbox grabs files out of specific folders again, just takes care of it. All to do is pay the annual fee and I'm good to go there as well. Now, you may choose a different service but I encourage you to bring as much automation as you can into your backup plan because the more automation you have the stronger your plan will be now before I get to my five tips in addition to automation I, just WANNA share a note on the difference between backing up in archiving, they are not synonymous. Backing up is what you do during the project to ensure that you don't lose your work if you're working on a wedding. You probably not going to get it all done in one night or in one sitting. So you back up so that when you come back to your wedding, you know you can just pick up and go. But as something weird happens, you haven't lost your project. But when you're backing up, you're not backing it up in the final state you're backing up a work in progress. Archiving happens when the project is over. In case, you need to revisit it for whatever reason. Now, archives are the final version in general you don't save all the incremental backups that lead to the final version you say, the final version itself. So archives are the final version. They don't need to be as quickly accessible as your backups, your backup she want right there on the flash drive or wherever you happen to be using. Their the works in progress archives the final version a writing. Now regardless of if it's an archive or backup, you need to have a system, right you need to have a system for managing both from this point forward I'm going to use a more or less interchangeably, but I want you to understand that archives are longer term backups are more works in progress. Right here are five additional thoughts to consider when endeavoring. To. Preserve your work. Okay. This start out with the classic three to one rule. I'm sure you're familiar with this and if you're not, you're going to be in just a few seconds three, two one. Well, what does that mean it means three copies of your data one primary copy into backups. Two types of storage media local drive you know network, you know whatever happens to be two types of media and one copy off site or in the cloud in the cloud qualifies as offsite three, two, one, three copies of your data, two types of storage media and one copy off site or in the cloud. Now, I do both offsite and in the cloud. So I have a copy of that goes to my home, right my. Primary. Copy is here at the studio I have it backed up on a hard drive here. So I'm actually like at four something like that, and then I have most of that data in the cloud. Well. So I like both offsite in cloud, but you know one or the other the thinking being that you can be as fastidious as possible backing up your data if you have it on a hard drive next to the computer. And something happens at that particular location, rather be theft or some sort of natural disaster or whatever. Then you still lose everything. So off site is important because chances are good that you know something that ten miles away on a server hundred miles away that if something happens to your locally that you're offsite copy will still be accessible case with three two, one, three, two, one, three copies, two types of media and one copy offsite. Number two don't erase your memory cards until three two one is in place. This is something that have advocated for a long time. Or at least consider your memory cards, one of those three
Warming shrinks Arctic Ocean ice to 2nd lowest on record
"Report that that ice ice in in the the Arctic Arctic Ocean Ocean melted melted to to its its second second lowest lowest level level on on record record this this summer, summer, newly newly released released figures figures from from the the National National Snow Snow and and Ice Ice Data Data Center. Center. Center show that sea ice extended on Ly 1.4 million square miles last week when it reached its annual low mark for the summer. That may sound like a lot, but in the 19 eighties ice cover was always at least one million square miles bigger at the end of the summer. This year is second only to 2012. But it was close. Scientists say This is due to climate change with some natural variability.

Final Fantasy 16 Revealed At PS5 Showcase Event
"They started off their event. Sony did. With a pretty big reveal and that is the next main line final fantasy game final fantasy sixteen, which looks like a return to sort of more medieval ask a look. Out of the car with the boys and we're into more of a Fantasy you know real fantasy setting. What did you think Tom of what they showed for final fantasy sixteen I'm I'm never been like a huge huge final fantasy nut. I'll say that much but I'm. Definitely. Intrigued by this like it. It looks cool and fifteen was a really fun cool game and the actually the most exciting thing to me like the trailer itself was. Cool. But didn't tell me a ton right because firefighters has been and can be so many different things that I didn't get a ton of vibes off of it more than like this is neat. Right The thing that excited me most about it was hearing after hearing afterwards at nayek Nokia Yoshida was GONNA be directing the game 'cause he's goes by colloquially named known as. and. He was the director and producer of fun finished fourteen and has done such an insanely good job with that game that hearing that he's being given the reins to the main series. Next main series game is. Really really exciting. So I think that there was a there's a lot of potential here and I'm very excited to see what they do with it but also this trailer didn't immediately make me run out and pre-order necessarily if that makes sense Christian, what did you think of it? Yeah. I like the direction they're saying it's going. I find interesting. It seems. To put this, not more combat focused because they've always been a lot of combat and final fantasy games, just kind of how that combat is delivered and I'm not sure. But I kind of got the feeling that. It's maybe embracing more of that final fantasy seven remake real time and I you know there have been so many final fantasies and so many sub fantasies of final fantasies that it's hard for me to keep track of them. It's like I know what original seven was. I. Know Tactics I kind of remember. A, and then I don't know anything else after that. But I'd like that they keep evolving with implying within. I. Think Though the people they have working on this thing. One I. Hope it hits a date. And too I think it looks really interesting. It's a big it. That was the other thing that was rumored I had an last week hill gets to see but an exclusive final fantasy the big that was a big stage moment for Microsoft when they were able to walk that out, say like coming to xbox final fantasies in in Sony's pulling it back seven, and then now this one is well I. Don't know final fantasy is has the brand cachet at once did but I still think it is a another Arrow in that quiver. You fifteen of course had. Real time action combat as well. and I think that that's just what squaring does now that they've. You know there is a way to kind of finesse turn bass fish in seven remained but not really. So I don't I just that's just what they do. Now, a much to my chagrin because I'm a fan of turn based off. But you know I miss I'm with you missed the turn based too. I think what they're doing with combat stuff especially, seven remake seven remakes combat I think is phenomenal but I just missed the classic a little bit too. Yeah. I do I do I mean I'm a big fan of based stuff Anyway so fun fantasy sixteen. I thought it was A. Pretty. Cool way to start the show.
Mahmudr in the Geluk and Kagy Traditions
"Maybe we'll start with. Way Your interest in Mahamoud. Way Did that how did that come about? When was that? So since by had? I probably I got interested in Mahamoud per se early in Grad school or perhaps a little bit before that might regional interest in Buddhism back in high school days early in college was mostly in San and I always expected that would be the form of Buddhism than I ended up practicing but the as says avid my then girlfriend now wife and I ended up traveling overland India in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, three into nineteen, seventy four, and then ended up at coupon monastery just outside. Katmandu where we studied where Rama Tipton yesterday in London Lumberton. And those famous co concourses which are still ongoing by merrily introductions allom Rim to the stages of the path of course. Llamas, OBA has a particular particularly in those days maybe a little. So I don't know He had a particular teaching style wary if you're at a month course, you could pretty much be sure that half the time was going to be spent in the lower rounds. So he did delight in. Those and Mama yesterday would, of course come in and remind us that we all had put a nature. So it was kind of A. Tough. Cop Nice cop routine and away. And you know he was he was a it was kind of overwhelming for me despite my interest. But as despite my having majored in religion in college and so forth. But. All the complication you know both the details of rim, how Karma works all the different realms, the scholastic arguments back and forth about beginning less mind an emptiness and so forth all of it was incredibly impressive. They were particularly impressive as practitioners as people who lived out what they had studied on what they were teaching but I I also began in in the few the few hours that were that I had hadn't disposal to to read. I think it was probably some poems by Miller wrap up where Branson book by John Blow Fouls, which just had a little bit of discussion. Mahmoud. and. The way the way I took it brightly. At times this reminds me a lot of ZAP it a bid, it short circuits all the detail, all the ritual, all the scholasticism. All those kinds of things that just tells you to realize the nature of your mind. So it appealed to me. Even that? Sort of a a hidden card. Yuba. Lurking inside this is fledgling gay look back. And I kept that in mind when. Year or so you're a half later I ended up graduate school at the University of Wisconsin, studying under shapes up SOPA. who was the first as far as I know the first Betton tenure at American University, certainly the first Tibetan guess. Who was tenured at American University and again to to study with guesses OPA both in the context of the graduate program that Wisconsin and at the deer park would a center as it's now called. Founded. In the mid seventies was too steep yourself in again are a great deal of the the complexity, the ritual, the richness, certainly of of the gaylord actual tradition and once again. The. Reading Mamo drawn decide what kind of balanced helped balance things out for me. So the number of the papers I wrote at Grad School, you know we're on the Mosit- as of India or or soccer punditocracy critiques of Mahamoud, draw various topics like that. So I, you know even in Grad school I I had this interest You know it sometimes said about Chinese practitioners. They're confusions during the day and Taoists. At Night I. Think a part of me that's was during the day and At night. Of course went when I began to discover that was that there was a whole Gaelic tradition of Mambo. I'd been vaguely aware of because it was a little translation that had come out at the library of Tibetan works in archives and. I read through that and So you know after I got Grad school sort of begun by my teaching career. I. Along with rank, of course, bring my dissertation into book form of pretty much everybody wants to do at some point are almost everybody wants to. Buy began to again sort of on the side begin to begin to investigate Gaylord Mabul dress, and so that's at least in terms of the genesis of this I. Guess That's That's how I would I would explain it. In a this dungeon have any. Teachers. Teaching. Mahmoud to you know you know during we went and saw on trump shays league. Once in Chicago he was notoriously late. He was typically drinking soccer when he was typically brilliant. So you know everything we had heard was true. And I think later in the seventies and into the eighties I began to to go occasionally to cognitive teacher but no, I did not have a regular. Teacher and I. I guess it's fair to say that I really never had a sort of regular teacher although in more recent years I've studied some weakening. European. Fortunately for us has his world had ordered in Minneapolis just. Just a few miles from where we live.

All this comes from India and you've got to go back and look again at Sada. High and the other message you gotta look at the time. TRAS. Very, clearly, the textual a kind of sources for Mahmoud to discourse and behind that. Then of course, always these claims that there's a Sutra Mabul dry and so you begin digging around in sutures that may mention the word or may talk about ideas that are similar and so. I ended up going down this kind of rabbit, hole. That led me deeper and deeper back into Indian tradition and it started out as really odd. I'll do a few little translations and right any production suddenly was this Gargantuan projects that threatened to be about just about everything in. Indian. In Tibetan. Buddhism.

Carmakers rev up electric truck, SUV production
"You, see them everywhere nearly fifty percent of all vehicles sold in the US, our sport utility vehicles the International Energy Agency reports SUV's are second only to electric power for the increase in greenhouse gas emissions in the last decade. But there are a new wave of all electric SUV's and trucks is coming and these new vehicles may be more powerful and boasted longer driving range than many of today's gas-powered SUV's trucks. So, how quickly will high tech these take hold in the next decade Chelsea Sexton is an electric car advocate and consultant hi. Chelsea their quick. Sketch here, how close are we to the next wave of electric vehicles and what will their capabilities be? We're going to start to see more of them in the next year or two obviously things are slightly influx with the pandemic but most of the automakers are still trying to be within a few months of their original targets and we're seeing everything from plug in hybrid jeep wrangler with thirty miles of electric range for around town driving and. Gasoline after that, all the way up to f one, fifty and riven with a few hundred miles of expected range and I'm interested in that F one fifty story because that Ford truck is the top selling truck in America I think there were nine hundred thousand f-series trucks sold last year and I see that they're retooling a factory in Michigan to build the first all electric f one fifty. What do we know about that role? Not very much. We're expecting it late twenty, twenty, one, early twenty, twenty, two something to that effect and they've not released really any specs other than videos of hauling trains and things to try to prove that electric vehicles really do have as much more performance than gasoline trucks, what other electric pickups SUV's Few years I'm watching all of them. There still are some open questions about everyone of them in that most vs today of any model have been sold only in California or the carb states owens have mandates requiring evt's there's not that many vehicles that are available across the country, and that will be a huge thing to prove what the trucks regarding who's serious, and WHO's not. That's an open question for folks like Ford, will they make these things in volume and sell them nationwide and really get behind them with the marketing and dealer support or is this going to be more of what we refer to as a compliance car which is basically Will sell as many as we have to in the places we have to, but not really in it with their hearts well, and part of the answer to that might be consumer attitudes. Right? I mean you helped launch an electric vehicle for GM back in the nineties. Have you seen consumer attitudes change in that time and if they changed enough to bring in the truck SUV drivers ironically that generation in the nineties had more trucks than SUV's in it than than small cars everyone knows the ev one that was the one I was involved in but Chevy and Ford made pickups at the time and Honda and Toyota made small SUV's so it's Sort of feels like we're yanking the automakers back toward where they started. There's still a lot of education that's needed. There are lots of people that are not even aware of electric vehicles, but in part that's because they've never seen one and they've never been available and so people can't buy what they don't know as even possible. So there's a lot of education required on that front but the interesting thing about electric vehicles in general is that it is the only example in the history of the automotive industry in which the industry itself has required demand to predate and continually exceeds supply. What. That sounds like is every time you hear it automaker executive say when we see demand for electric cars will start to build them. So it's always been the market polling for from the automakers versus the automakers trying to build their own market for something. So it's a parallel. Yes. Of course, we need to do more education, but we also need to start building things that people can see our else. They're never going to be aware of them in want to buy one. What about the politics of this? How much do you see that playing into the success of the next generation of truckin SUV models I mean we'll some people just not wanNA drive one because of their political beliefs it's possible however. The irony is that there has always been a fair amount of right wing support for electric vehicles because they use domestic energy, they keep more money in the local economy. We're not sending money overseas before an oil, and so it doesn't always get talked about in this administration because the politics kind of ebb and flow depending on the administration but there is a fair amount of conservative support and they're not just sort of this liberal technology that they're made out to be. So all politics tend to be kind of transient and. I've watched it shift back and forth over the years. So I don't expect the current politics will be permanent But at the same time, this has always been if not politically driven certainly policy driven it is those external incentives and mandates that have helped compel with the advocates and market asking for them electric vehicles for twenty five years, and it will probably remain. So for the next several at least are there any other barriers you see to electric truck an SUV sales? The single biggest barrier today is lack of product. The second biggest is lack of marketing and awareness and education and people not being able to buy what they don't know about and the third biggest dealerships across the board with any EV model if dealers aren't comfortable and wanting to sell vs they're not going to be successful at it, and so we can put billions of dollars into those first two things. But at the end of the day, if someone walks into a Ford dealer in his told well now, you'd really rather have the gasoline f one, fifty, not the electric one that one's Kinda goofy. All of that money and effort is wasted what about the pace of change and I know we're focused on electric vehicles today on the transportation emissions but overall with climate emissions I mean you you live in California you've been watching this for decades. We've got these terrible fires in California and Oregon this week are we moving fast enough now? We're not and that is not a widespread enough opinion yet. But regardless of why they come to the table, the best thing we can do is make more options available and attractive. So it doesn't matter if someone is coming to an AV because of climate change or air pollution or any other reason if they're coming for Torque and horsepower I'm fine with that. The goal is to build more of the table as we have more seats at it not be so concerned about why people come and sit down I'm all about the Torque and horsepower Chelsea, Sexton electric-car advocate and consultant. Thanks so much for sharing your perspective on climate cast today. Thank you for crash your party

There's been a lot of hype I would say orrock Croatia it's still pretty reasonably priced country to visit right I mean you're not gonNA spend a ton of money compared to some other I think it depends where you are like for example when I was in Dubrovnik the points hotels in both points and cash were insane and my friend and I ended up saying like some like random Hotel like not really on the outskirts ten fifteen minute walk to like the center of the city things split was a little bit more reasonable but the revenues expensive would you say lived up to the hype all kind of well known thing that you know some of the people there are just not the most welcoming to tourists I would say that it does live up to the hype in terms of like the Arctic texture and it's beautiful like you walk around near you think to yourself like five hundred times like how's this place real I think I benefited from not knowing all that much walking in it is one of my preferred ways to travel just because you're pleasantly surprised sort of no matter what and having gone to destinations that people don't talk about that much so the trio of parks the two really don't get a lot of attention outside of Europe or like I said outside of these niche communities so I was stunned I was really surprised that I had or heard about these destinations before and I had been warned ahead of time about Croatian hospitality being sort of unexpected everybody we met was super helpful very hospitable but after you approach them there is not that kind of and all of the hosts you know came out introduce themselves major we were okay and I'm really left left us alone and it was very much that we're here if you need us if you don't need us enjoy your trip so it's a different type of hospitality so we went to three national parks we went to North Velvet we went to a pack Lanista and we went to this which is one of the most famous national parks if you've heard of any Croatian national parks probably that one it's the turquoise flakes it is impossible to take a bad picture we also went to Paklin Isa which is the Rock Climbing Mecca of Europe visit the first time I've ever

there but not as much as I would feel other parts of this country still to this day would you say that you're you know you'd be doing yourself a disservice by focusing on keep talking exclusively or would it makes sense for you know first trip I strip focus on Cape Town there's so much to do every single day that you're there is a different experience so I definitely focused on Cape Town.

"Yes yes so these are these are the Glam rock cohorts and they are. They're doing a pretty good job of subduing Alex. When suddenly elite Val Cooper in a government jet literally dropped strong guy and Wolf's bane on top of the whole situation and strong guy throws Wolf's bane to we out of a name for this version of the fastball special yet well. If it was feral I would say the hairball special aw what's it's. It's he's also doing it us as a decoy. He's doing it as a distraction so he can then then attack them but gosh yeah. I don't know listeners if you've if you've got any ideas we we are comments are open and we are eager to hear them and the people that strong annual spin attack are the nasty boys because what they see is a group of Super Villains beating up on their leader polarises way to banged up by plasma blasts to really say much and sinister to try to tell them the truth basically saying Hey ed malice possessed havoc and so I am fighting malice with nasty boys. How does sinister ever expect people to take him seriously. No I mean I know the answer to that is that he's he's incredibly. He's usually incredibly effective. He's he's legitimately really menacing but I feel like I feel like he's the guy who who formats his entire life as like collateral proof that he's so scary that he can get away with having psychics called the nasty boys and he can dress like that and he can talk in in puns on his own name and I always come back to my stepdad telling a story about this pair of Pink Panther who owned that he'd wear when he would go to bars to shoot pool and and he called him his karate pants because if anybody made fun of him he would fight them. I don't think he actually fought them because he's very much a pacifist but you know karate pants. I mean presumably kick asset pool. He played pretty seriously competitively for a long time still does as far as I know I really like the phrase karate pants metoo now it only takes two pages for Polaris to recover enough to tell strong Guy Wolf Spain. No sinister is telling the truth so like maybe stop fighting the nasty boys because they're not the enemy here her and after Malik almost kills them. All perouse loses at. She decides that she she has had enough. I know what it feels like to be possessed by you horrible feeling of absolute violation and I can't let Alex go through with that one second longer yes. She is ready to kill him. If that's what it takes for him to not be possessed by malice so sinister minister says hey malice. Maybe this would be a good time for you to jump out of Alex's body and into Laura's your fear of veep repossessing Polaris has blind someone you should fear much us more me sinister being being sinister is switching sides about every four seconds and I kinda love him for it yeah yeah that's what he does best and there was this great two page spread. Ed as malice tries to jump out of Alex and into Lorna but the two of them Alex and Lorna are grasping at each other in agony with his ghostly Mala Alice between them and dismissing Mister sinister behind them all because Alex and Lorna they don't want to inflict malice on the other they wanna keep malice inside themselves else to protect their partner and Malik is being torn apart between them because of it. This is how you do that one scene in endgame. Oh yeah man. It's it's great so yeah. Malice is caught by sinister. He grasps her tortured energy out of the air drops accident the malice choker and then basically disintegrate said Damn sinister. I wonder though what is up with that shoker like is is there a backstory for why that is the Mallet signifier because here it's implied. It's a physical object not just sort of a visual representation like I always figured that you know Oh silver. Samurai had a really specific power with sword but is malicious confined confined to this one little piece of jewelry. I think it's a physical object that also kind of manifests as an expression of her simultaneously in expression but also something that contains are to some extent almost makes me wonder if it's culturally specific like if she he was you know in a culture that didn't have chokers and had other garment instead if it would be that but as in she's from the nineties so there you go hot topic. She's not technically from ninety. She's from much earlier than the nineties but still still Chris. Claremont was seeing the future the man had of his time. No Man the way but you got you got jobs and early nineties declares no okay. I guess I missed a lot of the early. Ninety S in terms of chokers anyway point is this was all sisters sisters plan to get malice out of Alex's body so he could basically psychically squish are but being senator he refuses to explain his motivations and just just acts like a delightful cryptic jerk but west toward you endure them are all aw in my boss and he teleport's away with his nasty boys. NASTILY they've got a boy George Concert Concert Open for one can assume so over the course of this issue. We've had little one page interludes in fact labeled interlude one one two and three what's been going on in those interludes j. a mysterious figure in a backward baseball. Cap Hoodie and flannel wearing specifically green and yellow. Let's itself into X. Factors townhouse the palm print reader authenticate seventy goes through the packed up boxes at Max's room to find a photo of Mora who who could this mysterious stranger who is clearly Jamie Madrick's possibly be well we find out for sure that it is indeed. Chamie metrics when you he looks at a picture of x factor on the wall focuses on himself and then just says Oh my God which ends the issue so yeah Jamie Amy Madrick's is back five issues later I mean it's not the old clermont trick of having a character seemingly data at the end of an issue and then backed because something happened at the beginning of the next but I remember Mavericks came back. I just didn't remember it happening this quickly yeah likewise interestingly. Dingli and related to that there is a fan letter on the letters page of this issue by famous comedian Chris gathered. I I think I'm saying that right talking about how much he likes multiple. Oh man and how Jamie's death was handled super well in number one hundred so that's a cool little random thing alas for Chris he he mentioned his in his later that he really hopes that the death breath will stick so that the what was a really well written death won't be robbed of its impact. Sorry man on the upside. There's a lot of really good magic stuff later in the universe so it was worth it. Chris don't worry back in Nineteen ninety-four. You can worry later so that's that's the malice arc and you know it's funny X. Factor is never the book that stands out like it was just sort of always a solid background book and a whole lot of ways but I consistently insistently enjoy it and the mattis run totally underrated like it's over now. We just covered the end of it but it's damn solid yes short and sweet also short and sweet some of you anyway our listeners and you've got questions. Let's see an anonymous listener asks tumbler even no part of what motivated warpath back in the day was to avenge the death of his brother. He only tried to get revenge on the X. Men who were only indirectly responsible for his death rather than countenance Varia who is actually responsible for thunderbirds death. Why do you think that no writer up until now has had warpath go after count nefarious. Yeah I mean counterfeit. If area was in over fifty issues of various comics since then since he fought the x men at the beginning of the giant size only while different era that is is genuinely astonishing. Oh Man I was reading through his marvel fandom entry on the Internet and his story gets weird. There's a lot of stuff going on. Did you no that. He's an ionic vampire. What yeah I don't actually know what that is. I tried reading the entry and I was still confused. As he only drinks blood with a positive or negative charge you would thinks so apparently he devours ionic energy which I guess is energy with a positive or negative charge which is a lot of energy at most energy. That's it's funny eats electricity. Maybe he just maybe he just licks electrical outlets that doesn't seem very super villainess but magnetism is he the ultimate counter to the magic and miracles of magnetism maybe but if he is they haven't really explored too much anyway so yes thunderbird did indeed die trying to you. Kill count nefarious. Counting ferry was fleeing from the X. Men when they defeated him James that being warpath. Maybe figured that if the X. Men hadn't given John on thunderbird a foolish 'cause like you know fighting to protect the world hates and fears them and all that then John would have gone with his usual buckle. You guys attitude and just stayed put and not gotten himself. Elf blown up. I mean it's almost like the various presence was irrelevant and that James was maybe just looking for a way to get his brother off the hook for his actions. James idolize John and so I can see him not wanting to say yeah. My brother did a stupid thing because he's a hothead but instead saying these jerks could all these dumb ideas in his head and that's what led him to do this act and he was only doing what he thought was right. See that's much more dignified and much more reasonable than what I was. GonNa suggest which is that despite the tragic events surrounding him warpath remains incapable of seeing the name nefarious without giggling which which kind of takes the thrill out of revenge. Oh yeah that was kind of going with my second theory which is that James was embarrassed by the fighting a guy who makes animal people in calls them from the Anna man and so he figures he can at least keep some dignity if the accident or his nemeses instead of those silly people who was it who made the animates was nothing Neto he made mutates. What were the animates. I don't remember. Was that a Saturday morning cartoon. I don't know I lose track of all of the animal. More people sometimes common problem around these superhero parts. Oh actually no I just remembered. I think it was that a guy who killed Doug Ramsey whose can't remember the animator who made the animates right that makes sense there. We go mystery solved. Hurri Lesbian Jubilee asks on Tumbler Sunspot and Monet or some of my favorite x men characters but they are often whitewashed when they appear in current comex as a consumer. Is there anything I can do you to get the artists and editors to stop this whitewashing there. Absolutely is I mean. There's nothing you can do that will be one hundred percent effective conclusive but there are a lot of approaches you can take to to addressing this and to bring it up into getting getting creative and publisher.
"miles" Discussed on Jay and Miles X-Plain the X-Men
"Hey Jay what you've been up to. I have been reading so much silver age marvel nice and he could ex cameos not really but that's because I'm deliberately mostly reading pre-accident. Ooh They do guest starring fantastic for number twenty eight excellent. What are they up to. you know trying to kill the fantastic four what why professor x told them to. He was very adamant about it. I don't know why terrible things he's he does still surprise me okay in his defense. He was kind of possessed this time by whom puppet master he's this fantastic four villain who controls people by sculpting duplicates of the amount of radioactive clay that seems dubious. Look it was the silver age. Radiation was great fair enough but wasn't professor x's identity a secret. How did puppet master know what he looked like. Oh puppet master didn't but he was working with the mad thinker who you knew who professor rex was took a lucky guess what it I'm Jay editon milestone folks and we are here to explain Blaine the X. Men because it's about time someone did welcome to episode two hundred sixty six of John Miles explain the X. men where we walk you through the ins the outs and the ret cons of comics comics greatest superhero soap opera and welcome back to me. I I spent a week in rural Michigan with my partner's family. One of them got married and it was really nice but I am happy to be back in a in a city now. I didn't realize what a city dweller I had become so it's nice to be home and it's nice to be talking about What is it this time. X-factor did the Cat Matthew. The cat was so needy when we got back our housemate totally took care of her and that was great but she was basically squawking and and laying on us the second we would sit still for even a moment. She has a lot of feelings she has. A lot of feelings all come out in squawk form and had yeah yeah. She's a good cat so we're talking about X. factor today but wanted to mention. I something that you can do to really to help us out. Yes so way back in the dawn days of the show. We used to regularly remind people to review us on Itunes in the other platforms where they listen to the show and somewhere in the middle. We sort of forgot to keep doing that so so this is our official reminder and request again that if you like the show please review us on Itunes stitcher spotify by whatever places allow you to review podcast. If you don't like US please keep your opinions to yourself. It actually really helps people find the show and we really appreciate. She had it so yeah. If you haven't done so please do and you could. I don't know is can you. Can they review on Yelp. I bet they can. I don't like Yelp. I don't know do we have to have a physical location for that. I I think you should review us on completely inappropriate platforms personally that seems entirely reasonable both inappropriate in terms of irrelevant inappropriate in terms of like obscene own oh man so the best inappropriate in terms of seen platform. I don't know if it still exists but did you ever see critique my dick pic no but I can actually see that being like a valuable service. Okay it was terrific blog where people could send in their Dick Pics and the the person who is was an art historian or an art critic would critique them based on things like composition addition enlightening. I love that although I'm just imagining sending in a picture of like night wing of Dick Grayson and then the critic just going off about what Jerky could be see. I'm just imagining you know sending in pictures of random things like like when people send raiding dogs other stuff in the whole thing that led to they're good dogs sprint haw. I'm tangentially familiar with rating dogs. I mean the concept of it. It's good they're good dogs sprint. You know who else probably likes dogs most of the members of x factor. It seems likely well. One of them is sort of a canine herself so there you go before. Are we dive in. Let's get a little bit of background on the current and past states of everyone's favourite government sponsored mutant team and that team has fewer people than it used to. Who Do we have well not Jamie Madrick's. Yeah he died of the legacy virus and it was it was really sad genuinely sad or did he. We'll get to that but as far as the people who do remain still alive we've got polaris fabulously green haired mistress of magnetism and magnets on again off-again daughter and enormous jokester strong guy and recently restored to psychological independence teenage. Werewolf Wolf's bane and that's kind of it for now I mean I guess there's Ford. She's still there boss yet but he's often space being sexy and excellent unlimited number five. I miss back when Comex if a character was in one place would not have them in a second simultaneous place ace yeah that was good but I feel like wolverine kind of ruined dammit Logan. You ruined everything. I guess there is random. The surly mercenary they've been working with lately but he is decidedly not part of x factor and why would you even suggest that yeah he is adamantly still an independent contractor. Still you'll sort of affiliated with the team is their previous government liaison Val Cooper. They're not on great terms. Though as rex factors previous field leader leader Havoc Alex Summers well a few issues ago he agreed to let sympathetic villain haven attempts to cure Jamie address of the legacy virus and that went poorly and when Jamie died havoc is now off bring in Hawaii. It's right. He quit the team. sunfire would be proud. I I think it takes more than that to make sunfire proud yeah yeah. That's probably true. He probably have to quit like at least two or three times now. Strong I was CARAX's best friend and took it pretty hard when Madrick's died but he and Wolf's Bane have been excellently supportive buds to one another and did not quit their day jobs on like their boss us they are however taking a break from the team but we'll get back to that shortly but it hasn't all been death and resignation lately because Polaris Laris recently found out why assassins had been repeatedly trying to kill her or at least she'd apparently found out now what she discovered what she thought she discovered was that a government project had wanted to work with her as a counter to magneto awhile back rogue agent decided that the best way to do that would be mind control. What we you know annex factor doesn't though is that these seemingly very reasonable government lady who explained all this to the team is actually possessed by malice malice is a psychic entity who used to work for mister sinister and possessed Polaris for a really long time back in the day malice usually takes the form of a little choker with a skull John. It occurs to me that it would be really hard to tell if mystique with possessed by malice no yes. She's got stalls all over. It's true but right what's more. I don't know why polarises still mad though I mean yes. Ashi may have had or body and mind take over for months but at least you got some pretty sweet giant hair and a red super villain outfit out of the deal. I mean that's worth something right. No maybe well listeners. You be the judge if you want but in the meantime we'll talk about X. Factor number one hundred three friends and family family. This issue is plotted by James. Mattis scripted by Todd Disalvo penciled by John Dermot inked by Al Norman colored by Glynos Oliver and Oh man Dan this arkwright here. These are jammed Madison's last issues and he's not writing. He's just plotting however. I'm really happy that we've got awesome. affreux solid several issues because I really like her art. I also really liked Todd Zog. Oh He's the person who script this arc and in fact will go on to script worked with John. Francis Moore's run after this. His dialogue is actually really really good. I'm GonNa Miss Jammed Jimenez a writer but I think I might like design. Goes Dialogue Doug. Even a little bit more yet does not go has a really really solid grip on the character voices at this point. and I really like actually honestly I really like them. As a rating team here I agree although Guido does sound Kinda weird with a deal and wit and was all the time spelled all funky yeah hit he occasionally only ends up being phonetically cockney which the Weird Ho man non just imagine him as like the giant child chimney sweep of the book. He's filthy like he's sweeps children's chimneys. 'em Let's go with yes as for the plot of this book that partially features a child chimney sweep. Let's start out with havoc was start out with Alex Summers in his ripped tank top and his shades moping tropical early and they have to wonder under I mean I get why Alex is up. Satiety may dining blames himself for it but did cyclops feel this way when thunderbird died way back in the bronze age yet but cyclops cyclops had an angry. Clermont narrators snap him out of it all. That's a good point. I gotTa say though is Alex Brooding as one could brewed only and specifically weekly in the early to mid nineteen ninety s pretty much so and maybe that's why he does not in his guilt blow open demon CAIRN and release a demon the way cyclops did when he was brooding after his teammates death. No no that's late seventies brooding. Okay I mean you know that's how you can define a decade by its brooding eighties bridges space base guys legit but suddenly things are much better because scantily clad polaris shows up she found him she found him and she is here ear with what appears initially be melodrama and then comes full circle in a much much more polaris line. Our hearts and souls are bound together. You know where you are when I look into my heart. I know how you feel. When I look in your eyes we live for one another and I know we die for each other. I go to the ends of the Earth for you. You traced her credit cards man. I really like them. I really liked the extent to which like any time that they go into that sort of sappy version they they. They become smart asses about their characters. I feel like this is a relationship. It's really hard to get invested in largely because both of them are are characters who are disproportionately plagued by inconsistent writing and sort of slapdash characterization but the dynamic. That's established between them in this. This series in this era is one that I really really like. I completely agree yeah. I I missed out. I mean I get why the characters have been taken in other directions in recent years but but in the comics I think this is my favorite polaris and my favorite havoc. My favorite Polaris overall of course is from the gifted. I feel like they could make really good. BFF X.'s X.'s yeah I'd love to see more of that. I don't know who knows what I don't think they've been put on any of the current New Era lineups but we do know that more books are coming yeah yeah and I yeah and again. I think this is a dynamic that would translate really really well to that so they have they have a long heartfelt conversation after which polarised I decides that there has been enough brooding and it's time for them to go surfing. This is where it comes from that havoc serfs I. I had never really pinpointed the issue but I guess this is where x men evolution got got it yeah although here he surfing on magnetic waves because why not and then go magnetic volcano diving put that in your dissertation guys if you ever finish them okay that is legitimately awesome and I do really really really appreciate that. The writer sear remembered well okay. They made them geologists instead of geophysicist but still they remembered yeah close enough. I also myself appreciate that. Polaris tells Alex does hearing people up has her second mutability ability and she'll show him her third later polarises such a wonderful flirt with Alex It's actually just that thing where you can bend back in touch wrist with with it no well. I mean different strokes. I guess you don't WanNa do that. While you're diving into a volcano access to both ends well well as all of this volcanic flirtation occurs. Someone's watching. It's an old woman in a Mu Mu. This is specifically Beatrice Connors relation to the Lizard as far as I know on and she is she's possessed by mouse. We discovered that at the tail end of her last appearance in the comic and she is she is on the beach of course reading a tale of of an rices the tale of the body thief yellow a little books the little subtle snarky references that really feel like x factor she also murder is a poodle named trixie for no particularly good reason and then a couple of vacationers steals their room. The thing is I feel like a lot of the things she does will be more convenient to do without murder probably true. I I think it might come down to the fact act that you know her..

"Ninety miles podcast. That's what it's called right. Yeah ah easy for you to say yeah. Welcome to another episode whatever we thirty nine episodes while i believe today's thirty nine thirty nine almost all is you. That's <hes> you don't need to tell him. Oh yeah i it's. It's a podcast they. They can't see they don't know yeah. We're actually both forties somewhere. Well you know you're like what you're nineteen. I'm seventeen right well. That would make us young and dumb. We don't want that. I mean if you're nineteen or seventeen. Don't think you're young and dumb but the very mature for salt <hes> you know our audience no. That's not what i meant yeah. We don't wanna be yeah. I dug a hole here really guilty yeah and by the way i'm just forty. I'm not somewhere in my forties so i am on site of forty. Something bright forty-seven really is this where we're going today so yeah nineteen year old listeners seventeen-year-old listeners. What do i think of kids your age and by the way you are kids. I'm kidding. No no you're fine in fact fact some of you know more about baseball than i do but we like to sit here and give each other crap and <hes> yeah you know. That's what it's all about. It's a good time and <hes> yeah. You're young dumb even though i said that right okay so he's getting that i i don't know. I don't know they probably turned it off. Already deleted the website from ari and yeah they're gone yeah. Yeah we lost an entire segment reported accorded as i tunes or whatever and for what what did we get reported for for age discrimination on a podcast. Yes i guess ageism ism ageism yeah <hes> boy well. They probably think i'm old and <hes> you know ornery and you know they wouldn't be wrong. I guess yeah well that's true. You'll that people get off my lawn before. It happens yeah yeah so <hes> anyways <hes> baseball well yeah specifically. This podcast is about the cubs versus the brewers commemorate. It's thirty nine episodes ago when we started. I don't really remember how it all happened. Yeah yep something like that so <music>. We're gonna cover. We're gonna talk a little bit. You wanna talk a little bit about the twins. Brewers series max kepler just <hes> we're in attack. <hes> we're going to talk about how much josh hader sucks which is that's that wow actually he's. He's one of the best in the game and still is says. It's just a there is a certain area struggles and if you're a fan you notice you know what it is but i i have an idea of how the brewers can approach him right that also rizzo and you know then suspend snowball fact that got into his head so bad when he rizzo oh really yeah gave up that homerun originals thirteen given up or other twelve. I should say it was all rizzo. Oh you're right yeah. Cubs gave you guys. We we live rent free in your head. Listen to yourself right myself gulf. I don't know yeah exactly so. I guess talk about hater to be fair. We'll talk a little bit about pedro strope too so so there because he sucks walks but he actually sucks. I'm cater. Oh my god. You know we'll talk about that. <hes> yeah it's fairly in some ways as comparable numbers if you discount this season but <hes> realize certain numbers okay okay all right. It's certainly not there e._r._a. That's comparable that much. We know well actually eh. It's close. It's not on yeah otherwise we're gonna just generally talk about stuff. Let's <hes> uh let's well. We we yeah we want to get into the national league central a bit because the race is <hes>. It's the best race in baseball. No doubt about it for sure. It's it's if you look at everything else. It's <hes> there's not really another race like it. You could get into the twins and cleveland a little bit if you wanted to. The twins of <hes> taken a half game aimed lead in that central division over there and the brewers did face the twins but <hes> you get into the national league central three-horse race milwaukee chicago st louis. The brewers are just the game back they've been six and four over last ten which is better than both the cards and cubs in the last ten ball games not surprising. Oh yeah yeah yeah well. The cubs have a have another issue and it's it's weird. It doesn't completely really make sense. I mean he he some deviation in that record now and then but it's striking and especially if you consider wrigley field you know although it's a great home park for the cubs. It's it's not always you know pitched some days. It's pitcher friendly somedays hitter friendly. It's not it's not like <hes>. It sounds like miller park where i think both having you know. There's a good opportunity to put some offense up there for everybody thinks yeah. Everything's miller park is a home run. Haven it's real middle middle of the league not necessarily home runs but <hes> but but i mean you're always gonna have good weather and you're not always going to get that at wrigley field wrigley field you know run-scoring numbers are brought down by april and september bit because the whether let's crappy games that happened in drizzle or like you said the wind blowing and miller park has ideal conditions so it's going to be always more conducive for generally good office well. It's an inconsistent so it's weird that the cubs have a home record of forty one and nineteen and a road record of twenty three and thirty eight. That's that's i. I don't know if you can even pinpoint an issue there. That's just weird <hes>. I guess they get homesick. I don't know it's just something weird about that and i don't know well today's burgers and beer thing. I'm from the preseason. No cheeseburgers no beer on the road and you know if you're at home. Nobody knows what you're doing. When you get to your apartment or your house but on the road madden oh you know old dad madden yelling at kids to get off his yard and yeah but i was a kid that wasn't madden's thing. Madden doesn't care about that madden's davin beer. I'm sure the wind is a yeah. He's a wind gust some unbear- too i guess but he does have i think he has a winery. I believe <hes> all that'd be interesting by never try it because skipper but you know when he goes to the angels next year you know way back in the preseason right when he goes back to the california angels yeah i myself again. Call call him the california angels i think yeah i know that's that's old school. I'm sure on your age. You really are not dr you. No no and i don't know if the listeners can hear about my dog is whining because there's a giant rabbit outside. She wants to go get but obviously since we're recording i can't go let her out so if you hear my dog barking and whining it's not because i'm mean to her just because she wants to go to your rabbits ruining ruining the whole episode whatever typical right i'll put on my blaze orange and i'll go up there with my shotgun and be elmer fudd and the rabbit will beat me up yeah well. That's that's a weird tangent. What is going on with the show today yeah anyway so the cubs on the road terrible and <hes> yeah yeah yeah <hes> it's funny it's <hes> it's been rough there <hes> on the road and and it's <hes> yeah hartford and help your feelings about out that yesterday did he oh m._v._p. Form when he plays the cubs what's up with that yeah a little a little little bit but yeah <hes> you know. I kind of wish it had been anybody but harper. I i don't hate harper. I just you know whatever yeah but the good for the phillies for the phillies that keeps them in is speaking speaking of things to that keeps them renting the wild card race tied with milwaukee rate behind chicago saint louis and the nats in the wild card race so the nats have a one and a half game lead lead currently dea think when you look at things you know we talked about how the national league east wasn't going to be what we thought would-be really really great rate now if you look at it the nats and atlanta or both above saint louis chicago and milwaukee they. I didn't expect that i did not expect that i know. The marlins are terrible. So you get some wins that way. <hes> right the nets have been playing very good. Baseball and milwaukee will actually be teeing it up with them. <hes> <hes> this weekend the other than the marlins all the teams in the easter above five hundred <hes> yup so yeah. It's <hes> you're wrong. Maybe no no no no no. I still think the central is the best division <music> in the national league. Pittsburgh has started to tail off pretty badly. They are under five hundred but miami's thirty games under five hundred so yeah. Let's not twist it. The reds are pretty decent ball club. You heck you yourself just got to see him. Play the cubs yeah yeah. I know and they may look even even better than earlier. In the year there <hes> bauer was was <hes> rough one <hes> that was a big. I you know improve the team. I'd say i mean you only see him part of the rotation but yeah but they kind of need it that more so than than puig who you know league doesn't do a lot for me. He's you know middle of the road statistically so i don't know his games and and oh he does and he's gonna cannon and yeah. He's gotta arm but yeah i would. If i had to pick bauer or gets a pretty easy choice for me. <hes> even with bowers head case issues yeah well. They're they're not as much head cases puig. I mean that's one case. That's a wash there but but yeah i i am still blown away by that trait. I don't know where cincinnati thinks. It's going if this is all for twenty twenty <hes>. I don't know i even talking you know next season. I see milwaukee having room. We discussed it last episode. If you haven't checked it out go to ninety ninety miles podcast dot com you can go back and listen to all the backlog episodes <hes> you can ask alexa play it. If you want to <hes> she probably just heard me say that. Hopefully something doesn't doesn't happen <hes> yeah. It's <hes>. I don't know what exactly is going on. The mets and the reds did some interesting the thing things to say the least leading into the break but the way the division is breaking down. It's going to be a lot of fun. You know milwaukee chicago st louis hopefully saint louis collapses. I kinda foresee that coming but the mets and phillies there for the wild card as well. It's <hes> the national league east is better than i thought it was so i was wrong about it a little bit i still think the central's the better of the two divisions and i really honestly don't think either chicago or milwaukee played up to what they're are capable of not even close yeah or the cubs really i said milwaukee or chicago yup credit i as a saint louis. I wasn't totally paying attention to you. Oh no no no saint louis. You tuned me out. I know just like all the seventh yeah listeners. Oh yeah yeah yeah whatever cubs got <hes>. I guess <hes> yeah i i i did look at this before they got seven seven more against the brewers and seven more against the cardinals yet the season so this division is wide open. I don't know how many times brewers play the cardinals yet. Oh sure washed thanks buddy. I don't know i'd have to look and it's <hes> i've got. I've got to computers open in the one that i would have it. On is the one that i don't have in front of me. Oh okay okay. Well you want me to look for you. Okay <hes> hang on hang on air. I'll look i'll go to the brewers skating. I got it. I got it. It's fine. What.

"Well to welcome to the new best rivalry in baseball. Hello again baseball fans. Welcome back to the ninety miles podcast where we talk nothing but brewers and cubs ninety miles separate separate the two rivals and we're here to discuss that i'm here with my friend is always ryan who is a for for some reason a cubs fan which nobody can figure out i think he was brainwashed by w._g._n. Back in the day it happened right yeah well yeah that's <hes> even if that is the case <hes> <hes> that's fine because i would <hes> i would not want to be a fan of any other team other than the cubs so you know accept me twins to which i am but not the brewers now i. Why would i why why why i mean i. I guess they got you know wrigley north which is kind of fun but <hes> other than that you know yeah i know i i don't know i i i kind of lost my train of thought like oh yeah the national pastime having a hotdog. The miller park is where it's at actually that's that's one of the best parties in the country before a baseball game show you what oh right right right a lot better within wrigley ville wriggling and obnoxious that bad expensive. You know yeah obnoxious a lot like a lot like this podcast when i'm working with you yeah yeah. I'm obnoxious yeah. Maybe it was obnoxious with our series wrap from the last episode if you i haven't checked that out bad mood really crappy weekend series not even worth talking about right yeah yeah i had to do a little bit of editing there air bleep out a few few naughty words well yeah we <hes> before that we had had thirty six episodes with only twenty two naughty words after last week's episode we're up to five so impressive in one episode game of the sweep and they weren't like borderline. You know maybe get away with it on network tv they were like absolutely needed needed to be bleeped out. I mean it wasn't quite deadwood level but you know oh god no no common going there at some point. The season's going to end and someone's not going. It'd be happy so it's come true. Maybe that'll be some <hes> patriot extras. If you want to hear us unedited version of with the season wrap episode that would be that would be <hes> yeah. I don't know if you liked. The bleep outs from the last one. You might like actually a hearing the words. I don't know let us know you think well see speaking of season wrap so i think we're gonna talk world series and and actually i you know i it's probably if anything my my season wrap on the cubs may be more swears of of happiness rather than what your you know season rack kind of <hes> language. We're just gonna be you still have a legitimate chance to win the world series and that's why i love him. You're always i was on the positive side even when they're down optimal three american league teams in one national league team that would absolutely destroy your club. You still think there's a chance we're really gonna talk about this. We're gonna talk about this well. That's kind of the point of our episode. Podcast is isn't it about trying to win a championship a world old series the art club's right the brewers have been to one <hes> cubs of one one in the last hundred or so years the city of milwaukee. He does have a world series championship up until twenty six thousand. It was more recent than chicago. Cubs <hes> the white sox. I had one more recently than the cubs up until sixteen dean but now if i start going back to that historical level i suppose you're gonna rain on my parade a lot anyway. I don't even know where i'm going with this right now. Let's talk about our world series odds. Let's talk about her. Chances for clubs and tell me why you think the cubs still have a legitimate shot to get to the world series the season well okay so i i mean i don't that much. I mean i admitted it. Hey alright what would you what would you put the percentages at cubs getting to the world world series. You know it's it's. It's the thing that's that's tricky. Is i think more my issue is not so much about the cubs as i i do feel if things really coalesce here this last <hes> last bit of the season and <hes> they gonna run. <hes> you know i mean i think they have have a similar strength to team as he did in sixteen but i think fat there's other teams <hes> both the dodgers in the national league and and probably the yankees and astros in the american league that are are <hes> stronger teams. I think than any of the other teams <hes> in sixteen when the cubs did win <hes> i mean <hes> i i would argue that right now between the cubs and brewers. I don't think either team gets through new york. I don't think they get through tampa bay. I don't think they get through minnesota soda. I don't think they get through cleveland. I don't think they get through houston. Maybe oakland <hes>. I don't think either of these clubs that's true for the brewers. I would not say that's true for all those teams for the cubs. You think the cubs are better than the tampa bay rays right now yeah i think i think the cubs would have a good chance of beating the raise in a postseason series. You know which would be the world series seven games seriously right. Yes thanks for updating us on that. That's good yeah sharp right. I will agree with clare american league. The american league has some inflated records is because you've got teams like baltimore detroit. Yes seattle's been terrible that are inflating those records but just on the eye test from what i've scene of tampa bay from what i've seen of oakland and granted the cubs just did take care of oakland they did but may i mean regular season took one zero. Three regular season is different than postseason the games. I managed completely differently. I think it's you know of course so so you know that there's ebbs and flows for every team within the season so it's hard hard to say but yes the cubs played well against the as and i think that bodes well for the cubs <hes> you know i. I think that the challenging teams for the cubs cbs it. We're talking. Let's just i mean i mean. We're not even really talking about the playoffs. I think the dodgers are going to be a challenge for anybody. In the national league through rights writes boiling down the percentages right. I i give milwaukee about a two percent. Three percent shot to get to the world said sounds right. Maybe percent well. I think if i looked on baseball reference as of today through today i think they were one point two percent to win the world series. I'd say it's probably closer to four or five percents to get into the world. Series is probably about twenty five percent to make the playoffs is what they're saying. I would say milwaukee sitting in a wildcard position right now. Yeah they haven't and had a hot streak really all year. I would say they're more than due for one. This lineup needs to get hot and i think it will. I would say probably about seventy five percent chance to make the postseason and and realistically getting to the world series <hes> if you get into the postseason as you've said this never know what can happen right about ten percent shot milwaukee gets to the world series if they make the swimming that that that's where i'd put him right now. I'd say chicago is because they have a better pitching staff. Currently the way things are going. They don't have a better at our lineup in my opinion but they have a better pitching staff. I think the cubs are probably about a twenty percent shot to make the world series then. I'd put you know that's thirty eighty percent. I'd probably give the dodgers vote fifty percent and the braves the rest fair. That's i'd say that's pretty fair our <hes> i. I think it's going to depend on how the postseason lays out you know <hes> i. Hey you know the dodgers have been in the world series. Last two years have not one and now they're. They've got quite an incredible season going there of course leading the majors right right now <hes> in win percentage <hes> seventy seven and forty <hes> i mean they were there the last two two years and didn't win. They got a fire there. That is probably more concerning to me about the chances of you know the cubs winning. The world series is even just getting to the world. Series is probably a bigger hurdle than what whether they face the yankees or the astros i i'd i'd say the dodgers are more more concerning and that's that's not even getting to the world series so i mi- you're more worried about the dodgers. Then you are the yankees or astros i i'm i am i am i am i would have to. I would have to strongly disagree with that. Minnesota leads the major leagues this season with an eight thirty six opie s on base plus slugging slugging yeah yeah that is a full. The cubs are at seven ninety. Well e v nato seven yeah four american league teams with a better oh p._s. E._s. before you get to the first nationally as offset by the designated hitter yet but i yes there's that but also i mean even if you look at just win loss records and win percentage manage of of these teams i mean i like you mentioned. I think the american league is slightly inflated there. <hes> there's some really weak teams i think the national league league is has is more balanced and better teams especially the central which we've talked about all year <hes> yeah and that really spreads the wins and losses <music> out differently despite that the dodgers have been dominating <hes> you know true so i. I don't know you know <hes> yeah the twins i mean any i mean if if the cubs make the world series any of those teams astros twins are it's not going to be a pushover that's for sure but but anything can happen in a in a seven game series and and john what i i don't agree with that. I a three-game series. Anything can happen in a five game series. A lot of things can happen a seven game series. It's good it's a good it's a length of a series. I agree. That's that's a measuring stick that i <hes> i thought would last year milwaukee and l. A. were the l._a. Didn't have the best regular season but you knew they were too talented to sit idle in the postseason. I mean the brewers the cubs and the dodgers last year. Those were clear cut the three best teams in the national league. I don't think anybody's close to the dodgers this year and it's it's the divers were good. They were good last last year. They were pretty good. Were they. Were sure but if you take a look at but i think i have it. I american league was was ridiculous last year though i think you know boston in houston were strong teams last year. Yes and houston just got a whole lot stronger anger yeah yeah exactly addition of grinky a yeah. That's the top half of the america. The top few teams in the american league. I think are better than everybody in the national league probably including the dodgers well. I think i'd put minnesota. You know what the dodgers are probably better than minnesota. Nothing against twins fans. Hey i am twins fan. I'm i am pumped about their season..

"Top. Ted Add Cy Young Award Voting Darvish. I'm calling. I'm calling my heart. I'm going okay so uh-huh Yup. <hes> put it down. Actually <hes> all right you darvish top ten cy young award voting and causes sweep cubs this weekend all right. I need to update the Theresa <hes> the most recent prediction or the most recent stats were from June and he was <hes> he was saying behind in third place. Yeah that's not that's not a spicy. He's run for him now. That was a terrible <hes>. I've got a prediction to the Milwaukee brewers starting pitching outside of <hes> an a couple of explosions recently recently has been very good Zach. Davies is the guy that's been exploding though <hes> he is going today versus Catanha and then it's <hes> it's Gio Gonzalez and then Adrian Dan Houser my prediction for the series brewers starting pitching will not give up more than six runs <hes> for the for the series yeah. That's all three stores just the style. I'm not putting them yet. I'm not putting a minimum on innings here. Because these guys you know Hauser's not truly stretched out Gio Gonzalez getting stretched out but milwaukee usually only throws their starter out for about five innings tops getting a six inning start yesterday from I'm from Chase Anderson was outstanding and he's been outstanding the last month plus <hes> really really pitching well which is huge. They need that from him right now but yeah brewers starters won't give up more than six runs starters will not give up more than six runs over the three games wrexham. What does that not bold enough for you? <hes> it's borderline. It's really Kinda borderline for me. Borderline borderline how you keep telling me how awful the starting rotation is you blew up Zac Davies for seven run. It was shorter all all right yeah and you're saying how that was you know just the performance that you expect from a guy like ham right okay. Maybe you didn't say that no. I'm putting words in your mouth. Six runs for the starters. I can't do better than that. I'm not going down to five if it's not bold enough. I'll pick something else well. That's bats. I mean that's getting into the brewers early but not overly so because you know I you know depending. You need a minimum number of innings or something here you know no. I mean really for started to come out really early. You're going A. B.. Scoring four or five runs off of them <hes> probably so Anzac Davies gave up seven the last time you saw him right. I know that was fun and I'm saying six for the series Yeah Fun all right all right up. So you know <hes> all right. What I'll I'll go down to Fi- I'll go down to five runs but I wanted to count for two wins <hes>? I'm not GonNa do that so no more than six. So five five five runs or less is what you're saying. No I meant no more than six like each guy could give up two runs but that would be it okay so six or less runs. That's what I'm saying okay giving up. Is it by the snow yeah. Let's go for it all right. That's fine. You gave up okay now. I see sorry. I thought it was a good predict. That's fine. We'll we'll go ahead that well. Let's see it'll be over tomorrow so we'll so you're you're sweet. Predictions going to be over in about five hours I don't I don't think so not this time. It'd be right on that lineup although there's been I don't think so sweeps this season so our. I don't think Chicago can handle what Milwaukee brings to the table. I don't think they're going to sweep them. This year. I think we're psychologically so deep in your skull with that one on sixty three wind from last year and just flaming out the last two games that <hes> there's just no recovery for Chicago. Wow we'll see plus. I think Hamels. Probably you know coming off the deal. I don't know how he's going to perform. Especially against Milwaukee realigned their lineup to be more right handed heavy. I'm excited to see how how it plays against your left handed pitchers so oh I know I should clarify near prediction though are you talking earned runs or just any runs well. I'll give you any yes that helps. Does that make it better. Yes okay. We'll give you any wrong attack. You know I've been putting up with your sweet prediction and by the way I don't think sweet prediction is like super. Oh by the way it should feel full to you. You know it's like it's the brewers no teams going to sweep the brewers especially especially not the cubs Blah Blah Blah's so well yeah the goal to you. It's it's funny. Oh it's I feel like I'm GonNa be right this time. It's going to be the turning point of the season for the cubs and they're going to run away with the central so should should be good. I think this is where the cubs completely crapped the bed and the cards and Peru's run out the division. That's what I think. The the brewers and cardinals are gonNA be battling rattling for a wildcard spot and cubs this runaway vision so Milwaukee Gets Pittsburgh for three after this then they get Texas for three three. Those are decent teams. I mean Pittsburgh floundering a little bit. <hes> obviously that brawl was was something special. I've never seen anything thing like that with the reds that was wow Amir Garrett the cojones son that guy yeah that was it was. I think that just added to the deadline lore that was this was a really fun deadline. I had a lot of fun actually being on twitter and watching this stuff as it happened. It was a good yeah but <hes> well I mean the cubs gone eight after but at least they're in Wrigley hopefully that helps but then they got a four game series against the reds sands and so but should still be interesting and <hes> well. Luckily for Milwaukee they still get a four game set with Miami towards the end of the year but the August nineteenth through August twenty eighth they play six out of nine games versus Saint Louis the middle three are against Arizona and then that that follows up with a t a three-game set Chicago A two-game set with Houston than a four-game set with Chicago so the brewers need to make hey right now <hes> absolutely this weekend get it started win a few against you know get get two out of three from Pittsburgh two out of three from Texas split with Minnesota and then the the real rough part part of the schedule starts. It's going to be a wild finish to the season. I'm I'm looking forward to it. Yeah I mean the brewers wrap up on <hes> September eighth with the that's the last Asfour game series there but the cubs do place <hes> seven more against the cardinals including wrapping up the season and with a three game series against the cardinals in Saint Louis which is pretty boring but <hes> the the Games won't be by the city is right anyway <hes> Goldschmidt. Oh boy don't forget you. GotTa beat that out from earlier no yeah I I know I wrote. I made a note. Don't do that a little a little post editing for Ryan today. That's fine as my own fault but anyway anyway. Let's let's get Outta here. We got a game to watch to here pretty soon so yeah yeah enjoy the game. Enjoy the series everybody buddy. If you're.

"Bullpen depth slash starting pitching help right <hes> you know he started seventeen games for the giants so far this year is appeared in twenty one recently shifted the bullpen the way the brewers operate and the way they've had to operate since woody went down. They lost canabal before the year started. There's been a slew of injuries. She's seen scene is out hasn't performed anyway they bring in Jordan lyles and they bring in drew pomeranz. These are veteran guys. Actually <hes> you know Jordan. lyles pitched very well <hes> here just a game or two ago. He went five full innings gave up one earned run. That's a very solid start from him. <hes> they needed the help and in the cool part about it is when would he does come back when you know a couple of these guys do come back. Jordan lyles is a guy that can shift into the bullpen and give you help a you know he can be one of the mid level mid tier kind of bullpen guys that Milwaukee's been lacking the bottom three of their bullpen. This year has been a you know a round robin none of guys that suck. They've been awful so to replace those guys with somebody. That can get some outs for you. Can maybe stretch. A bit is going to be very important especially. They try and ride this out being tight race. Try and write it out until we get closer to the end of September and see where we're at and yeah well. We'll Jordan. lyles is isn't good good really but the brewers are familiar with him. He's he's had some success. <hes> his first eight starts with Pittsburgh Spring this year I think he had about a was it like a three point three e._R._A.. In his first eight or so starts and then he absolutely stunk after <hes> point three if they get them he had in total with Pittsburgh right but it's a it's a tale of two seasons for him on that front <hes> it's his first eight starts and then the second seven in his second seven have been atrocious his first eight outstanding so if you break it down that way <hes> you know by game he's actually not been. He hasn't been all all bad all year. Let's put it that way so there's potential there what Milwaukee could afford to do was gamble on a couple of guys. <hes> hope that they bounce back. If you look at their entire roster oster really <hes> bullpen arms. They've got shelby Miller in the minors. They've got a bunch of guys. They're just hoping that one or two of these guys are lightning in a bottle. That's all they're doing. They're gambling gambling on cheap and that's what they had to do. They didn't have like I said they didn't have the minor league system to go out and acquire a mad bum they didn't have the minor league system to go out and acquire somebody like Grinky who ended up with Houston. Oh my gosh that's crazy. <hes> talk about just yeah yeah just an embarrassment an embarrassment of riches out in Houston and that's the thing <hes> I was you know in hindsight would have liked the brewers to suck one more year ear so we'd had loaded up a little bit more than the Minor League System No. It's never any fun to be a fan and do that but to watch Houston do what they're doing the riches that they had in the minor league system. This domain is starting to deplete a little bit but it's been unbelievable what they've been able to put together. Well yeah gotTA. Do you gotta do I guess well long story short the brewers both bought and sold at the deadline like I predicted and it was smaller moves. which is you know what you have to expect with that kind of situation? We talked before that. It'd be a pretty active in wild deadline as opposed to what a lot of prognosticators thought. I think that's accurate <hes> I I think there was a lot of media moves. What are the mets doing out there. Getting stroman the mets go get stroman. The reds go get Bauer. This is insane liquor sense. Yeah yeah well anyway anyway. Yeah it's many miles Jesse back to the cubs and brewers. Yeah Yeah Yeah yeah well. It comes got it <hes> as far as pitching bench briefly they got Derek Holland. <hes> you know they <hes> needed lefties so they they got <hes> the got him they actually got <hes>. Rohan Wick and although he's a righty his numbers are much better against left handed batters so <hes> again kind of the same same thing <hes> church you know he's what <hes> <hes> versus left handed to fifty batting average versus three. Oh Eight <hes> you know as a right handed pitcher but anyways <hes> yeah those couple of other dishes so I you know <hes> other than that. I mean they did get rid of <hes> while earlier they gave rid of got rid of Mike Montgomery. Okay that was for Martin. Maldonado who then they got rid of and got Tony Camp <hes> and then they <hes> <hes> traded Carl Edwards junior to the padres for Brad Attic. Who I believe is going to be available pitch right away <hes> I think he he's going to be in the minors. Initially <hes> Derek Holland Rohan Wick though are available <hes> Brad Wicca another lefty <hes> so so you got your lefties. You're happy about that then yeah. I mean if we can execute. I mean that's been the thing the cubs you know. Even like you know like strope and you know stuff like that. It's their decent pitches actresses not being able to execute <hes> so but yeah I mean as yeah. We'll see how they do but I mean that that was needed. You know in a in a way it's kind of like <hes> in a Lotta ways needed against <hes> the brewers <hes> well. That's what I was just about to say. Bruce actually exacerbated the need for the cubs to get that by trading away way that a right handed power hitter who now is going to be supplemented by Travis. Shaw playing some first base another left handed hitter Eric Fame's playing first base the reason I think the brewers lineup Yup can actually get better without hey sues if you put grand doll occasionally at first base or you put Ryan Braun occasionally at first base which is part of the plan is to bring Brian on back into that role. You're actually lengthening the lineup because to be frank. Hey Sue stunk. He was hitting two thirty five or something silly like that for the season. It didn't look like it was gonNA turn around. Maybe a fresh page will help him but the brewers lineup they can bring they brought up a young man named Trent Grisham. He's an outfielder so you know you have five devote fielders on the roster. If you count Bron and <hes> of course that includes you know Kane and Yelich <hes> but when you look at it the way align align that up Manny Pena has been very good against left handed pitching so when the left-hander comes you can slide granddaughter Brandi First Base Probably Grand Doll preferably since he's a switch hitter and both Grisham and met Gammel are are lefties in the outfield but that allows you to really try and get after that lefthanded pitching which is one one thing. The brewers have struggled against the cubs with so when we get into the weekend preview here. I don't know how many lefties are going for the cubs this weekend but I would suspect we'll see the possibility liberty of penal behind the plate who frankly I think calls a better game and <hes> is a little better defensively than grand all even though grant gets a lot of credit and you may see grand all over at first to get a more right right handed heavy lineup against the all year left-handed pitcher yeah well. It's GonNa be <hes> while can Tana and Hamels is going to be back on Saturday. So those those are your <hes> lefties softies starting and then you darvish so <hes> yeah what is it. They got it right now. It's looking like they're going to do. It's going to be cantata today. which actually it's starting one <hes> less than two hours yeah momentarily actually so you're probably GonNa hear this? PODCAST is a really good chance after her gambling has been played already. That's yeah very good byes billion unless you're a rabid fan and you listen immediately upon release but <hes> would you you all should oh by the way if you're really enjoying our content to we do have a Patriot page. We would love some support that way. We want to keep doing this for a number of years but eventually we do have to be able to <hes> well. Basically we have to be able to at least pay for the website. Be Nice break me. Love doing on it and it's great. It does cost us a little bit to produce all of us if you like us. If you love US share with your friends let them know about it. We've got a Patriot yeah <hes> yeah well and and and actually I'm just mentioned quickly to another way you could support us as if you're thinking about getting some memorabilia or a New Jersey or something like that Dan <hes> head to ninety miles podcast dot com and you will see you know there's links to majestic <hes> by your cubs and brewers tickets from stubhub through us us. <hes> you know we get a little kick back that way out helps out to or buyers autographed. <hes> you know Ernie banks. <hes> you know memorabilia through through the links on our that'd be a sweet piece of merchandise. That's another way I mean if you're going to get the stuff anyways. <hes> you know give your throw us a bone a little bit. You know that that would be another way. We would really appreciate all the way to do <hes> so you can do you know go to ninety miles podcasts dot com and there you go <hes> <hes> and then otherwise yeah patrons and other option even a buck a month or something like that <hes> would help out but <hes> you have fifty cents an episode however you you. WanNa do it doesn't matter any little bit would be helpful and <hes> we do really appreciate the listens. We really do appreciate the interaction on twitter. We're having a blast with this and we hope you are too yeah <hes> as much as I hate the cubs and everything about him. It's still fun to talk about it with Ryan. Yeah hopefully it's entertaining so but right. Now we hate the cardinals a little more I think yeah I don't know that it's kind of a toss up that is very true <hes> well so let's <hes> previewing the weekend we should preview the weekend just a little bit. See what we think. It's going to have to give our predictions. Let the people get back to work. We're back to you know. They're enjoying their weekend right. <hes> <hes> yeah so that's that's <hes> how the starters are lying up for the cubs there <hes> Cole Hamels. That's GONNA be interesting. He's been having an excellent the year or until he got injured so I mean he's got to ninety eight E._R.. A <hes> you know he's just been he's been one of the the best <hes> starters for the cubs this season so I hope he comes back strong and continues where he left off <hes> and can Tana. You know he's been good this year. He's especially good at Wrigley and especially against the brewers so we'll we'll see I mean with some blips there but <hes> you know it's going to be nice. Yongnian back back at Wrigley cubs have been significantly better at home than on the road this season you know that's something they need to figure out but at least you know <hes> it'll be nice nice to be back at Wrigley. <hes> and Darvish is quietly been putting together. We talked about that. <hes> you know not too bad of a of a season here. No He's actually been quite good as of late has Nia yeah he's been pitching deep lots of strikeouts far less walks <hes> and and <hes> you know he's got one hundred and forty one strikeouts to fifty one walks and most of those walks were earlier in the year when he had a few starts is still kind of getting going but I but yeah he's lately..

"I just wanted to touch on it and see if there's the nice thing is the cubs are having a little more lineup consistency right now. Then the brewers are which is good for you obviously bad for me but that's kind of. I don't know neither teams been super outstanding on anything here. <hes> you know it's just a few individuals on my side at least but yeah I wanted to take a look to <hes> <hes> just because we're talking about so much. I'm trying to pull up a number here. I would like to look at <hes>. You know the the entire. What was the highest for a season to your recall off the top of your head yeah yeah right? I decided to pull this out half yeah. I know what this is why we need a producer. Look this up but <hes> I just if you're looking at those two guys. If you're looking at yellow and Bingo season war yellow has a one point one four zero opie s on base plus slugging bellinger has a one point one two four <hes>. That's you know over over eighty games into the season. If those numbers maintain there will be historically high numbers and baseball has to stop and look back. I think whatever they did that. Change the aerodynamics on the baseball. <hes> <hes> might be creating some historic number problems in my opinion. I don't love offense but I'm not I'm not in love with <hes> just creating these historic numbers. Now I know the batter's are better. The the strategies are matter the pitcher's throwing harder. All of that is a factor but if you're messing with the ball as well and this is what we're getting. It's fun to watch and it's historic but you know well they. Are you know a little lower. I mean they're saying too. Although I mean it's possible it could be the the launch angle revolution as well. There could be some other things I mean. It's very lander is saying it's it's the ball but <hes> I think it could be the ball ever so slightly but it's it's probably more than just the change in the approach. <hes> by hitters now compared to the in the past. It's it's we're going to get into this more yeah. We need to get into this much. Articles talked about yeah. There are historic numbers that are changing and they're big percentage jumps from even last year and it's a it's something that's kind of fascinating to watch you. Look at those those opie. S.'s for the first half and it's just it's just amazing well eight. Oh they gotta dig into it more yeah yeah. I think we'll dig into it more <hes> yeah I mean it's it's there's been a shift where it seems as though there's more value in being kind of all or nothing <hes> as as a hitter for sure and of course that's going to lead to more home runs. I mean it is I mean it's also gonNA lead to more strikeouts which has also been true La more strikeouts rights so that's you know those are connected <hes> <hes> but launch angle I. I think that's a big thing I think you got more velocity with pitchers years. You know <hes> you're seeing relievers earlier in they're coming in and I think that's just gonNa lead to some extra home runs as well. <hes> you know it's the ball you can act with a ninety eight mile per hour fastball. That's no doubts you know so I mean it's a lot of things and yeah in the E._S._p._N.. into broadcast during that homerun derby they did mention that they've done some testing and it appears to be a more aerodynamic baseball meeting. It's it's capable of going farther. You know going faster and faster longer. If that's the case that's just an interesting wresting thing to add onto the top of the list of all the changes that have happened over the last few. I think they they mentioned to you know it's it's not just there's more home runs but the the lengths allot. There's a lot more long home runs now. That's yeah velocity all of that yeah yeah yeah so yeah. It's <hes> no it's interesting <hes> but <hes> well we'll we'll cover it more. I just wanted to mention it as we were going there. We're on pace for some pretty historic performances this year. It's exciting. It's cool that on my side a brewers participating in something that could be historical <hes> but we'll see how it goes after the All star break here which kicks off here <hes> Friday for the brewers. I think the cubs kickoff on Friday today is Wednesday July tenth if you didn't know when we were recording <hes> but that's what's going on. I think we should move into the prediction segment and kind of get out of here late episode. How do you feel about that all right? Let's do it.

"Hey, hey, welcome to another ninety miles podcast. And it's been rough rough go for the cubs brewers Lali. This is ninety miles from Wrigley to Miller park, all cubs brewers, and yeah. You know, cubs been kinda scuffling and I don't know. I'm still like change. I think we should change the podcast and talk about two different teams this week. Yeah. Twins. The twins out the Braves. The cubs are playing the mound Braves. No. Don't care for the Braves that much anyways. Well, I liked them when they were in Milwaukee, even though I wasn't alive. Right. I could root for Baltimore. They were the nineteen o one will walkie brewers. That's something. Yeah. Talk about that. Terrible week. I guess we're gonna talk about. We got, you know, we got a couple of younger pitchers doing a few things for both the teams are gonna talk about them starting some games, desparation mode. We got head to head contrary versus grand all. So that's e- contrarius hands down Granville. Yeah. Right. Okay. So that'll be fun. Then we got actually talk a little bit about, then I'll central because basically. Yeah. I mean, any any team I mean, even even in an extreme situation, if the reds are pirates on absolute tear, they could be in first place with this bad as everyone's been doing their six games out there, both six games offers place. That's crazy. Broke away. The brewers are the cubs had the best African Unity to break away of any teams in neither could do it. Yep. Does then the pitching falls apart, the haters can't hit, everybody's running so western play baseball. It's it's Casten heroes in the minors. I'm let's talk about the Baltimore Orioles. Seriously? Yeah. It's a lot easier to talk about somebody else being bad than it is to talk about your team being bad. Yeah. And we can't even talk about teaming bad in the central because they've, I mean, I mean, the reds pirates are under five hundred but they're only six games out, so, you know, and they're not even the worst of, you know, when you look at all the majors they're quite a few more teams worse than them. So I don't know. Well, no. The division division. We thought was going to be really good right now. It looks like everybody's kind of the same mediocre is kind of how it feels I still think between the brewers and the cubs, there's more talent there. And there's a better chance for one of those two squads to make a run. Probably the way the bruise of implying in the starting pitching been going. Yeah. Yeah. You'd might have to give it to somebody like, don't know the cubs, but. Whatever. Burs aren't done going through their pitchers. They're just about done going through all their pitchers to see if there's any starters left, but the good news is the trade deadline's coming up from the walkie. There are some available pieces, but the systems a little thin we were talking about the Al central we might as well, just do you want to do the tweet of the week now should we jump in and do it backwards today? I mean I guess that's all right. Well, we already talked about the central right? There's a lot of things going on right now. Now, let's just do what we were going to do. We'll get to. Okay. Sensual has some, the central has some messy stuff happening wanted to talk about the two young pitchers pitch on them here. You know, for better for worse, I guess we're kind of saying that is it for better for worse for the teams that, that these guys are starting games? We got advert house lay and Adrian Hauser for the brewers. Yeah, I don't know if it's for better or for worse, but it's definitely for desperation, that's how I feel about it with the. Houser has he's been decent as a starter in the minor leagues. Nothing nothing. Outstanding some pretty good stuff. He's been very, very good this year out of the bullpen. He's been really lights out from the bullpen side. But now with every single pitcher, Milwaukee's thrown out there as a starter, except maybe Brandon Woodruff. They need somebody to step up and to start a game without giving up three runs in the first inning against the reds like they did three times this week, which was boggling back to back to back games that could happen. You know what I don't know a lot about ads lay though. So we're going to try and head to head or kind of for better for worse. Compare these guys, right? Feel about the cubs having to start ads late. I mean it's it's it's because mainly because Kyle Hendricks. And you know it was earlier in the year was there was. I mean he's he's basically a top pitching prospect, you know, he's a starter in the minors shirt, Taylor. And, and so there was talks about. Well, how are we gonna there's some way, we can get them? Get 'em. Somme J-League experience this year and you know, and then you got injury to Hendrick so that kind of open up opportunities, so they call them up, and he did you know, they have given them. Well, he's got eight point two innings logged. He did four innings kind of following up chat, would, you know on the on June twentieth? And then June twenty fifth just yesterday. He started first major league start for point two innings pitched one run. So. You know he gave up a few walks as well. Right. So it wasn't like it was a lights out performance. But sounds like it was pretty solid from what I four walks or strikeouts. But you know you know he threw eighty seven pitches, but yeah, I mean you you're going to expect that he's first major league start. I mean, let's see what he doesn't is fifth starter. If he if he does, you know, like, Kerry, wood, his fifth major leagues. No. I that's a obviously. Yeah. Yeah. You dream a lot and you dream big. We all love about just. -tunities to mention, you know, Kerry Wood's league stars. The best pitching performances in major league history. But anyway, so, you know, a lot of things can happen, you know, early in the career, but. That's not going to happen. He's not carry what he does not have carry would stuff. Let's just move on with our lives a little bit. He's a little bit of a different pitcher. But, but yeah. A little bit. But yeah, it's, it's so anyways, there was some expectation that he may come up and pitch a little bit this year. So that's where the object cut opened up. So I don't for better for worse. I in fact, you know, it's not good that Hendrix is injured. Of course. To bring you up some depth. I would say that's for better age league again. Yeah. Given given the circumstances, I, I'd rather I definitely would rather have him, come up gets a major experience. And despite what the performance might be add rather, he's in there than than like chat would or Montgomery starting games. I you know, at this point I you know Montgomery. I don't know what's going on with him. He's, you know, he he used I used to feel a little better about him coming into games than I do. Now, that's for sure. But sure anyway. And well, you know. But that's right into get into my side of it, too. Yeah. For worse Hauser I know we're comparing and contrasting the two guys a little bit. But it's two totally different situations. The cubs needed a guy to come up and fill in the cubs have generally speaking, very solid starting staff Milwaukee was counting on some young guys to perform this year. It just hasn't worked out. You know, Corbin burns did not work out, real well in either the bullpen or the rotation the way they handled him. Maybe wasn't the best. Maybe he should've gone back down, but hindsight's twenty twenty. It was good to try again in the pen because they needed bullpen help badly chase Anderson hasn't worked out real. Well, if you go down further and you keep thinking about it. Jimmy Nelson didn't really pan out, Freddie. Peralta is really up and down a lot of the guys. They've been counting on to pick up some of the slack expect before the season. We talked about the expected or I did at least three out of the five guys, the panel that were in the starting rotation ULA seen should be around a four point. Oh, ERA guy, he hasn't even been that good. You should have had one or two of the other young guys would drifts the one. That's panned out. Woodruff looks like a potential future ace if he can just close the door. He has one bad inning game. Basically, once he gets through that. That he's going to be ace material long story short in a four better or for worse segment. You can't really do for worse with Adrian Hauser. I mean really it has to be better really think you only think about it is he's not stretched out. Well, yes. Going to be something that's a little different. So he's almost more like like an opener issue or you know. Yeah. Yeah he did. He did have one start where he was the basically the opener. He had two scoreless innings. Looked really good. Basically, he treated it like a relief role as a in the majors this year. He's got a two point two seven ER as got thirty one and two thirds innings pitched, a one point two whip ten point two strikeouts, per nine innings really solid. Reliever numbers is able to stretch out. No, I don't know. But they're gonna give them two shots at it. I'm thinking what else? No, I'm looking at this. And I. Yeah. I mean as reliever he's been very solid. He's got a one point five year. A twenty five point two innings pitched as a reliever as a starter. Just six innings pitched seven point five yard. You know, I guess as an opener, you know, I mean as reliever. Yeah. Searching out. I mean, if he did an open a couple of innings that looks good at his other start than what he went Horning start for innings, and I think five runs five runs, basically his entire era for the most part is eaten up by that very first appearance in the big leagues this year, which was a start, I think, in April or may I don't recall. But I had it pulled up here, but long story short. Yeah, what other choice to the Bruce have nobody else's working out? We'll give them a shot in the rotation. Very I mean, what might have made sense to try to kaikal but, you know, or something. Thing. Well at that point in time, we had talked about it. This team isn't built to handle a big long term contract for a guy that's going to be what top thirty percent starting material. I don't know that Keiko's any better than that. At this point locking up a lot of money. I think the way they're looking at it. You're gonna want to maybe look at trying to sign a grand doll type a move stock as type after the season, the money, open some other guys. Well, here's the thing. They, they expected these g. I know it's been bad. It's been bad. Starting pitching for about the last three weeks and there's no question about it. They could help out there pitchers and score a few more runs, you know, that optioning Travis Shah and bring up Casten hero right here. People are going to be, well, then how are you gonna, you know, who's gonna play first base when there's a left handed pitcher. Don't worry about that stock is at third here at second and let let Jesus hit it. First and split with things. It's not complicated. You don't have to tune everything. Well, no, I peaked in on some arguments. You're having with some brewers fans on, you know, on Twitter stuff, and I, I do tend to agree you know if the pitchers give up seven runs..

"<music> welcome back to miles away today. We are talking about october fest and today. We have a very special guest. We've molly only fergus. Who's the general manager of trip savvy with us today. Welcome molly. Thank you zac happy to be here. You told me a little bit about your website trip savvy sheriff trip. Savvy is a travel advice website. We reach almost ten million u._s. Readers every single month and we'd published travel guides to the best destinations across the world are writers are based in the cities and countries that they cover and offer really in depth content for you to help you plan your vacation so molly and i go way way way back. I referred my journalism career to. I think our summer welcome before freshman year of college college. Is that right. I believe so i wasn't even old enough to get a credit card that and i think i was seventeen. I was just in the american airlines credit card. I was thinking about it's like oh. I really want to get this card. One of the things i used my miles for trips to europe and i'd never actually made it to october fest but i know some of our friends that studied abroad dead when was is the first time that you earn. I went for the first time in twenty fifteen actually so not we'll studying abroad as a as an adult. I decided that i'm going to do this trip and make it happen to munich that time we had some friends friends running the berlin marathon so i went and cheered on my now husband in a bunch of friends running that and then the berlin marathon aligns with october fest so we drove from berlin after the race and kentucky tober fest in munich about a six hour drive because you figure while you're there. You're there at that time. You have to experience it. What was it like for your first time. You're going back this here. I am going back so it must have been good. When i thought of october fest i pictured sort of a beer hall in the u._s. Like on steroids and maybe some tense that are set up like maybe a wedding with dirt floors but it is way above and beyond that these tents are spectacular. They are full fledged semi-permanent structures with steel. I beams and wooden floors wars. Some of them seat almost ten thousand people. Oh my god in one ten in one tent all drinking leaders of beer. Only leader is a beer that has all you can drink so it's really just a sort of magical and something you have to start a experience to understand <hes> and there's a a dedicated venue for october fest right so is it in at the center of munich or is it a different part of town. It's just outside the center so you can walk there from the from the center of munich or take a quick cab ride their pedicabs. I know going back and forth as well but they're the fest grounds sounds it's designated on the map so when you look you'll sort of big open area and it says the various stress. I think it's the ring that goes around that area and so the fest grounds are there all year long. I think they actually start setting up these tents in the summer so well ahead of the fast. You'll can even go and take a look and see the tents. Obviously drinking is drinking beer specifically component of october fest but what else is is there to do. Is it just drinking day night or are there other activities. It depends on your style. You certainly could do that but it's actually a huge carnival so when you go that was the one thing that really surprised me me is. There's a giant roller coaster up. There is swings. There's tons of games. I mean you could spend all day just sort of having fun with that too and then listening to the live music and bobbing around and people people watching is really really fun. Food is just like a big food and drink fast. Yes there's tons of food a lot of very specialties. You'll see these roast chickens everywhere. That <music> are truly delicious. It sounds boring whatever we've all had a roast chicken but there's so so good really juicy roasting on a spit. There's tons of pretzels. Of course there's great cheese spreads. There's different girls fish rush. There's you could eat your way around the fest. How does the october fest experienced kind of compared to a state. I if someone's been to see fair in the u._s. Is it similar in away with a lot more beer. It's more organized agonizingly immoral structured you know again. These tents are all buildings and they're all decorated differently. They're really really beautiful so you have definitely about fair elements with the stands the food but then i would say a little more culture and a little more pomp and circumstance behind it all. Can you walk us through just very quickly. The kind of a history and the cultural background of october i sure so october fest actually started as a celebration for i believe king ludvig the first wedding and it was a big wedding celebration they had a great party and and they had such a good time that they decided to repeat this party every year and then they moved it back to september and october legend has it and i've heard because the weather was just nice that makes it does overlap with with october just very calm. What are the this year since september twenty first tober six six. Could you get a full week in october this year nurse. Should you be there for the first weekend. Is that the most exciting time to go. That's certainly a great time to go. It's when they tap the keg. There's one 10-shot bench shot and hamill. I don't know if i said that right. I probably definitely did it but they tap the keg in their historically every single year and no other ten can serve beer until they tap the keg in that tent all party okay so why do you get there early in the morning for the kid tapping. I think it's at noon so not that earlier okay. What are the general age ranges of people that go to october fest first of all ages. I mean truly like children to very elderly people independent and it's going to vary depending on time of day so if you're there around lunchtime you're going to see a lot of the middle ages. Maybe some of the elderly people hanging out having lunch but then as you get toward the evening it's younger people. The crowd gets a little more a little more rowdy as the evening goes was on as you might expect you see families in the tents as well or are they amusement rides obsolete. You see families in the tents as well but then they're on the movement park rides. They're playing games. They're participating the painting and the fastest a festival how logistics work because i know that used you said that you've reserve a couple of tenths specific tense already for this coming october fest yes so some of the a tense fill up really quickly hoffbrau houses one. That's really famous that can book up to a year in advance. Even so you can go and look up the fourteen tenth fourteen every year and on the tober has website site. You can find contact information for each of them. Every ten is owned by a different brewery and they only sell their own beer and it is typically specially brewed for the festival so you can only get this beer at this festival every year and you can email them and ask for reservations. Every ten has sort of a different policy. I know that one tent we're going to require any cash upfront so we just have a reservation the region for twenty people with my name on it another one you have to purchase a drink and food package basically so you pay thirty-seven-year-old and you've got two leaders and a roast chicken. One of those delicious roast okay mentioned it. When i think of october fest i definitely think of <hes> you know the traditional outfits. I guess that both men and women wear right. Yes yes is that you get all dressed up. Can you don't have to but it certainly has the festival of it. I recommend it what i do. Not recommend is buying the fake stuff so we made the big mistake of buying these costumes. Jim's in berlin and berlin is very different from munich. They're very different. Parts of germany and we just went into costume shop and i bought my journal and a couple of my friends about their leader. Jose in my journal was mostly passable but to my husband and one of our good friends were wearing fake leader and i say fake because leader hose and are really really nice leather pants. They're embroidered. They're really beautiful. Well constructed what they were wearing more like that felt fake leather right so it didn't even look i mean it was really really different. Grant from what a real leader jose should look like a halloween costume. You might wear in the states exactly exactly and they were approached by two two lovely. Bavarian women came up and sort of said oh. Can we get a picture with you and then took a photo and sorted giggling and walked away so don't do that what you can do if you don't want to splurge on leather pants which is completely fair is actually rent these costumes in town so there's a few different places that provide it. It's usually around forty or fifty euro per day for the whole the whole get up shoes suspenders pants cancelled so you said it's about thirty seven euro for the two beer chicken and your seat reservation so if you say you do a couple of days of that a couple of days of an outfit it's it's. I guess i'm pretty affordable weekend potentially yeah. We're we're the big expenses come in so your big expenses on the ground for sure is your hotel so as you can imagine munich is not the biggest city in the world and and it fills up really really quickly and prices get expensive for the fest. Let's talk a little bit about the atmosphere in the tent. You see the pictures. I've seen maybe a few videos but we're like what's what's it like all day. It's really fun and sort of progress throughout the day so both time when i've gone to both of the tents i had an eleven thirty a._m. To four p._m. Reservation so you can imagine you get in people are getting lunch thirty in their first beer. Is this little quieter as the music starts playing and the beer start flowing becomes routier and people are definitely dancing on the tables abel's. There's usually a live band. We found that in the afternoons. The bands were playing more traditional music and then as the night went on for the evening sessions you got into some more rock and pop music so sir you have to be prepared for some drinking songs and chants that is a requirement and you will not leave without hearing the song on pro set which is perhaps the most famous october fest verse verse. Here's i froze. It really just means drink. That's all it is and they play it. Seemingly progressively faster sara as as the day goes do you interact with the locals and the german visitors and i mean is everybody kind of having a great time together you stick you secure on groups. I just prefer it's whatever you prefer. I found you end up talking to people for the first time i want. We had one german speaker with us so that definitely facilitated the conversations for us but yeah it's just the festive atmosphere people are just happy. Who would you not recommend october fest for..
"miles" Discussed on 90 Miles Podcast
"Yeah. But he can play thirty can play. I he can play second base in a pinch hero. Truly is just a second baseman, it just when you mentioned cargo and then the versatility you have with, you know, Bodey and things like that. Yeah. And Ryan Ryan. I mean it's been playing a lot outfield this year. He's certainly not just the third baseman, which, which is incredible with the kinda fence. He can, you know, he has how to, to be that versatile is is, is good. But it is. And it is the new trend trend. And yeah, I guess I'm surprised that here is, is pretty strictly second base. I would imagine that might be something adding a position might you know. I mean that seems to be the new trend. You know, it's a he may like I said in the future he may play some outfield. But he is the first draft pick from the twenty seventeen draft to get to the big leagues e-. You know he had he had a bad elbow. When he was drafted. So there some things they are working around. They really didn't wanna push anything with them. Just let them develop that bat and place him second base. And quite honestly, he looks okay? At second base. He definitely looks like it's his natural position. When you watch them make the turn. He looks a little more natural than watching Mike Mustafa's try and do it. Although we stock has has the better glove of the two and has less likely to make a mistake but he's a rookie. So that's kind of, you know, that makes sense predictions kind of covered mistakes and make deficit. I got a prediction for. Yes, he agreed on on those which was. You know, interesting. We didn't agree on the first stuff. Well, it's I think it's good discussion. I think we had a good debate as to what's going on. I wanna talk baseball. I don't wanna just talk cubs and bruised. But it's always good. Use the cubs and brewers as the fodder to talk this way. I think there was some interesting things in there. Hopefully you guys do too. If you do follow us, I'm at brew crew winning. Ryan is what are you at ramps? His cubs win. At wraps cubs win and don't forget to get subscribed to get into our giveaway. No purchase necessary. We've already mentioned it but let's get into some predictions. I don't know if we had any come to completion do you? I think we might did have one that I just barely missed, which is irritating. But basically, what was that? The may fifteenth episode. I predicted that between me fifteenth and may thirty first the remainder of may that Kris Bryant would hit six or more home runs. And of course in a couple of days he had a three home run game. I'm like, okay, this is looking like, and it's in the bag, but unfortunately only hit two more the remainder of the month ending with five just one shy address. Yeah you're tasting especially three home run game. Which was awesome. Which I know probably irritated, you significantly. I wasn't worried. Oh, yeah. Right base seventy three home runs. And it's like okay. He's still got he's got a lot of time to just at three more. And he only hits two so all right, fine. I got a update that prediction quite a workout, but yeah, no oh another reason. I'm so upset about Casten era. And I mean it's mostly baseball related, but I do have a custom here prediction. It was ten home runs by the all star break. He was halfway there and they sent him down for Travis. That does not look very promising to you, unless Shah really thinks it up the backup or something. Well, I have a feeling what is it? He has to go down for ten days minimum unless there's an injury. I honestly think we'll see him into or three weeks. He'll still have a chance, but he'll have to come out super hot. I had it in the Bank, if they just left them in the majors, and let them play second base. It was in the bag and Well, I. I, I actually have another one that I got wrong. I'm just realizing at this point, I did predict in episode twenty four that the cubs win five of six games versus the cardinals. But they of course we're swept by the cardinals the first three games. So that is not going to happen. Oh, that is a bummer. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. That's a, that's a bummer. So you go nine and three the next twelve games. You made that prediction is that even possible anymore? That was on may twenty ninth. It is still possible. Okay. It's just not as likely as it was. I think I think they have to win out. May twenty nine. I gotta go back and look, I forgot about that. We'll know you're put me on just. Donations and Mike. Wow. We got live thirtieth. They're one two three four four into okay? And that means they gotta go, what five and one. It's totally doable. They got the Marlins in there the to Mars coming up for the Bruce the Marlins just shut. Yeah. Okay. But but airman Perez was pretty entertaining. Yeah. There's your silver alright. So so they need they can only lose one game by June twelve. Right. Right. And then let's see Casten here at ten plus there's, there's another thing I did predict recently. Jimmy Nelson will record two wins by the all-star. This was made on this was episode twenty two. So this is what we, we could go. That was he's coming up. He's pitching today, twenty today. Oh, yeah. Used. There's a chance there two weeks ago. He will record to win. So I'm gonna double down on that prediction to all my prediction for today. Is he's going to am. We've done actually stretch episode folks. If you're new to the show, we did a stretch episode on how the wind stat is kind of meaningless, but we like to use it and predictions to give it some media, I Jimmy Nelson is gonna log a victory today and his return, he's gonna go at least five innings with the lead obviously, in order to record the win now. Okay. And he's going to have a minimum of he's also going to have a minimum of five strikeouts. So he's going to get the W and strike out at least five batters today. That's Jimmy Nelson in his big league return. It's a really great story. He hurt he got hurt sliding back into first base after absolutely pummeling all the right field against the cubs year and a half ago actually more than a year and a half ago, I think wasn't August of seventeen or something like that July seventeen. Anyway, welcome back, Jimmy. It's been a long road. He's had a lot of personal heartbreak issues. With his children and some hostile blah, blah anyway, it's a really good story. And that's how he's going to bring it back today with an exclamation point. He'll take the w and get strike out five and that one ends today in starts today. So I get the log a log one today and see the result, this, I'm not sure if that's very bold. Really? I don't think he's gone more than five innings in the minors during his rehab. Does that make a difference to you at helps? What do you it helps? You don't think that's bolt predicting a victory. Okay. It's against the Marlins fine. Yeah. How we give limit on the number of earned runs he gives up in addition to get in the w. So, you know, okay doesn't give. Yeah. Sure. Okay. Okay. Yeah. How 'bout why don't you name the number of earned runs? And I'll tell you, I think that's okay. Three or less. Okay perfect. So he gets the win allows three or less earned runs and strikes out five in his return from what a year and a half outside of major league baseball. This relatively bold. Yeah. I'll go with. I'll go with that. Right. So if your new the show, which I know some of you, are we try to make our predictions, something where it's maybe like thirty thirty five percent chance of getting something. Right. Just recording a win for a big league pitcher is tough enough. So I think this is plenty of especially with the story line for sure. Yeah. So what's your prediction for me this week there, buddy got for the kite on? No yet. I've been trying to decide. You're always so never prepares. But anyways, I. My prediction for next week. My prediction for next week is you won't have a prediction. Ready? Okay. I. So I want I made that I have coming up here is, is Kris Bryant Kris Bryant will get player naturally player of the week in at least one of the two weeks either next week or the following week or actually, no Reynaud ending date. No, it's this week or next week. You've basically you're done to next week buddy, pretty much at this point. Yes. So next week next keys he can get older. You know, he definitely could. So he won't. But he. Yeah, he will. So anyways, I go ahead. And I'm gonna make I wanna make June prediction. And let's go with let's go with Rizzo. I haven't done prediction with Rizzo for a while. So Anthony Rizzo. I think. The month of June from now till the end of June. Yes. Ten home runs. From now until the end of this month. Ten home runs for Rizzo. Yeah. Yeah. Put it on the books. That's a good one. This is a really good one. I like yeah you're good. Oh, yeah. You kidding me? He ain't gonna hit ten home runs this month. Okay. That's bold. That's bold. Yeah. I think so. I mean, if it was if it was a Christian yelich prediction, I'd have to pick a higher number. But it's just. Okay. Okay. Fine. Between now and June ten home runs for Rizzo. There you go. What is he going to be is somebody going to be feeding them signs? Is that going to be the reasoning for the family? That, that's fine. I mean jeez. Oh, even at home. Rob a hater before. So, you know. If you guys have this year while. Yeah, closing there is the close. Their eyes in swing down the middle. Unfortunately, sometimes the balls. There you have it. So there we go. Prediction there again, that's predictions predictions for this week. All right. Okay.

"Fans. Welcome to the ninety miles podcast. If this is the first time you're joining us what this podcast is all about, is the rivalry ES Cole hamels, the rivalry between the cubs and the brewers. Amir ninety miles separating the two squads Miller park Wrigley field. It's all about talking smack with my good friend Ryan. Ryan, are you with me Sime here? Really talking. Smack is just me telling you how the cubs are better and there's not really much of an argument there. But, you know, I know you like to make your points sometimes I think I think the clubs made their point in game one sixty three last year. But that's totally last year was sure you want to. Yeah. Eight months, sixty three. So last year, come on get over it. You need to get over it. I still don't think you have gotten all I think you ever responded, I'm over it. Have you checked the standing? Oh, what standings the ones where the brewers caught up from last week when they were down a game going into the the podcast last week. And now they're what even then correct. No cubs her point five nine when percentage brewers are point five five seven. So there. Yeah. Okay. Well, we'll, we'll talk about that. We got a couple of tweets of the week on that stuff. Another thing that's going on this week. We changed up our format a little bit. We've been doing some thinking it turns out that the way we were doing it before. We're rehashing a lot of you fans as material that was already being fed to we wanted to do something different with this podcast. That's what the whole point was the idea here is to basically for me to rip on the cubs and for Ryan rip on the brewers, because that's what makes it fun. We want to compare and contrast. We're going to add a couple of segments this week that are a little bit different. Yeah. From now on real this couple of going onto. We're gonna change it up a little bit. You know, I. Yeah because we were talking about that. And, and I mean, we want this, this is this should be supplemental to your typical sports intake games and so forth. So, so. Yeah. As it's going to be fun. Yeah. Basically in the summertime. Yeah. There'll be a lot of fighting in the summertime when you're riding around in your car on your way to work. This should be what you want to check out. You wanna listen to the cubs and the Bruce chatter? This'll be a little bit different. You know, in depth look at how these two squads interact. Another thing that we've got going on, if you're not familiar.
"miles" Discussed on This Week In Marvel
"I m indeed a Rooney now, speaking of complex and awesome stuff. We gotta talk about miles Morales without it'd be fun to give a quick primer on miles some of his history. Some of the bits of pieces of his life. Some of the comics to read because of course, we have a new series coming out and Spiderman into the spy divers coming soon. Oh, yeah. I don't even know where start some of us have had the chance to see into the spider verse. And I I'm very excited to talk about miles Morales. This is a miles Morales movie. It's going to have you amped psyched pumped all the positive adjectives verbs. You can think of it's insanely good. But I think what the best part is that it's miles. Yeah. Totally. And I think, you know, four even really get into the movie, we should talk about the comics and his origins, you know, miles. I established back in twenty eleven we had comic Coltman Spiderman than running for a long time sort of a reimagining of the marvel universe. That was what the ultimate universe was was like, okay. What if all these characters really were established and created now as opposed to the sixties or sort of aged up through time this alternate reality. Then this all started in the early two thousands vendors were called the ultimate there is a version of ultimate spider man, who, you know. At may for him was more of like, an active women as opposed to the doting always sick, very old aunt that. We saw early regular Spiderman years there tons and tons of differences one key thing to know, though, is that in this universe. Peter Parker died while saving at may. And Gwen Stacy and Mary Jane while battling the green goblin he had been shot. And it just goes to this horrific battle with this longtime enemy, and it is brutal. Reading it again as I was going through this. I was just like man he has this wonderful. But devastating moment at the end. Where like the mask is off. He's just thankful that he saved at may when he couldn't save uncle, Ben. It's really it's really beautiful. But that was the end of Peter around that time, we find this young men in miles Morales who was bitten by a different, but scientifically related spider miles was inspired by Peter and what he did. And you know in the Waco Peter's death miles getting these new powers he tries to help. He does the right thing is first appearance was in a book called alternate fallout issue number four of that which has a couple of different stories, and it's really fun story by Brian Michael bender R Kelly he's wearing this Halloween. Spiderman costume and beats up the kangaroo of all people very very d- level villain, but good practice villain. A great one. Start out with good breaker. Good breaker into. Yeah. At this is right after the Peter's death, and every the world knows they have these great moments. Classic Brian Michael bender funny dramatic stuff where even the villain and the victim or like man that's in poor taste wearing the costume is really fun. Great story. And then like at the end, you don't know who this character is and he pulls up the mask. Oh, what am I doing and you see miles Morales? You see this kid who is Tino African American as like a whole new world that would then lead us into his own series. And we learn more about him..
