Games with the first losing record for a team in the history of the Major League Baseball Playoffs there were twenty nine and thirty one opening round best of three all in the same ballpark what are your thoughts and we couldn't lose I mean you know it. Likely not, but we could because his only three games all they got to do is win two of them, right? So baseball is so weird dodgers obviously you mentioned we got him at home dodger stadium. I don't think that you know I'm sure we're going to roll out Walker Bueller in Kershaw and we're going to do what we need to do to get to the next round But you could lose you know teams could lose you know the beginning of the year, the dodgers and the Yankees were pretty much the favorites to to get to the thing. In the end, but then the pandemic happened then we had to do all of the rescheduling and figure out how many games that went on for so long how many games should they play the only WanNa play this amount, the players, WanNa, play that amount it became a money issue, and now we finally have gotten to the point where October will be playoff baseball.

Later than October twenty eighth, they want to avoid the second third. So homefield everybody early, and then we're going to neutral sites, Los Angeles San Diego. Texas and Houston quick thoughts the Yankees of the five seat in the AL, the five seat, the rays of the one-seat. What does the same thing with the dodgers? Right? The Yankees could they take care of business they moved their events they don't they go home whether they a one C or DHCP. It's everybody's even really to be honest with you. Everybody's even Garrett Cole. Start, for the Yankees Chain Bieber for the Indians in for all the money they paid Garrett Cole Shane Beavers had a better year he has in when you look at it, there are no fans in the stands. So there's no home field advantage for anybody you know what's great about not having fans the Houston Astros. Left right. Everywhere they go.

Chicago White Sox clinch winning season, plus current playoff field
"Turn your head because I certainly did over the past couple of days maybe I got washed up at a bit of college football, the NFL return and but I didn't realize the Chicago White Sox. We're now in first place in the American league central after going eight and two in their last ten games they are. Let's see a game up on the Minnesota twins who have figured things out and are now in second place in that. Leaves the Cleveland Indians losers of six straight all the way down to third place at twenty and twenty one and four and a half games out. So so the Indians have gone from first place in the division arguably the team to beat in the American League two. Now, a wildcard team outside of the top two in the division and four and a half games out just that quickly I mean, don't you know six in a row and when the white sox are winning four that's at least. Four Games in the last four days and with a deficit of four and a half, it's gone from a half a game to four and a half year. By the time Friday rolled around you have the Detroit Tigers at twenty and twenty six, and then the Kansas City royals at twenty and twenty eight. Neither of them are atrocious baseball teams, which honestly is a bit better than I had anticipated for both of them but neither of them are going to be infecting the playoff picture with their presence. Where do we go here? The Chicago White SOx thirty and sixteen winners of four, straight eight and two in their last ten they swept the Tigers this past weekend. Let's take a look at their scheduled down the stretch here. See who they have coming up. They have four with the Minnesota twins who I just spoke about being a game back. So this'll be a fantastic series between the white. SOX and the twins it'll be in Minnesota Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday some fantastic pitching matchups in those. Then they travel to Cincinnati to Cleveland and retell her for return home ver-. CHICAGO. So the white sox tough schedule down the stretch with clubs over five hundred and then the reds mixed in there. So we'll see if they can continue to play quality baseball they continue to be led by Jose Abreu. He's crushing the Baseball fifteen home runs. Forty eight RB is Tim Anderson is currently your Major League leader. In batting average, he'd be your batting champion at three, sixty two. If he qualifies in Thirty six games, one, hundred, fifty, two are bats I think he has just qualified fine when it comes to that statistic on the pitching side of things Lucas g Alito. Continues to pitch well, Dallas Kaikal not a lot of people talking about it but six in two two, one, nine era talk about a successful year Then you got mad foster coming out of the bullpen with a one three, one era so Chicago a well rounded team they were my surprise bic in the American league at least they got the memo because. My Cincinnati reds on the other side will get to them but they still haven't figured things out sell but hey, one or two in regards to surprise picks. So the summer I'll take that absolutely. Did I think they'd be a first place team I didn't think the white sox will be a first place team but I certainly thought they were good enough to. Make the wild card and make the playoffs. Now we're talking standard one, sixty, two, five teams but yeah, certainly a pleasant surprise on the south side of the windy city.
[Unedited] Michael McCarthy with Krista Tippett
"I'm so delighted to be. Speaking with you. I can't tell you how much I love your book and I'm telling everyone about it. Yeah. It's as marked up. Emmy Book I have ever read. In the Bible including the Bible and I picked it up just on a table in a bookstore in Saint Paul Minnesota Twin cities. Different questions for me before we get going I think. Okay. I'm happy to respond to you. Yeah I don't I. So I don't usually do Generally do book interviews but really, and I've dug little bit and I've also looked at your. Some. Of Your other writing but I really. So so we're we're not talking about the book, but essentially we're talking about. Everything, the book is about. So I yeah so Chris I think we're good great. Okay. Yes and so we have a nice amount of time to have a big. Real wandering conversation. I would like to start I I I. Start Most of my interviews with a question just just wondering about The religious or spiritual background of someone's childhood I find. That is a very fertile place and everybody's imagination whatever their story is. It's full of questions and searching and softness so. However you would. However, you would begin to to think of that. How would you? How would you Described the religious or spiritual background of your childhood. I would use a curious phrase to describe. What I am now I would describe myself as an ethnic Catholic. Okay. that was a phrase I can't claim authorship of it was used by. British woman politician about twenty years ago meaning there's I grew up a Roman Catholic. and I have abandoned the faith. The formerly at any right but the belief system if not not necessarily. Belief in heaven now but the. The sense of right and wrong I think Stays with you all your life and you relate to it. Was it Mary? McCarthy who read a book called wants to Catholic. And I think the sense of right and wrong and also I think he'll go strong sets. Of Original Sin Yeah I. Think I'm quite aware that is a very dark side to the species mom. If, we can say that these days I think the the species is still called mind it's a human being. and so even though I'm not formally religious. I, like to think I. Suppose that I carry with me what people might describe as a religious sensibility. And I feel like right at the beginning of of your book The Moss snowstorm nature enjoy. You I mean this is this is a this is a book about our bond with the natural world. Right and you and you start it. It's also woven, and that bond is both civilizational. It's at once civilizational and species something about our species, but it's also personal. and so and you do we've that personal story all the way through your reflection on this large subject. End You know you're use the word a soul in this way rather early you describe your mother's illness and She she was away for a time institutionalized and. One of the things that happened to you as a child is it you you had a lack of feeling about that. that you could perceive, but then you describe this day. And here's just the sentences. That there was a singular window. Of observing butterflies and he said when I was a skinny kid in short pants, butterflies entered my soul. So where'd you just tell a little bit of that story as and why that is a vantage point for you on again, this large civilizational issue. It was really just a personal way. Of, my own way through my own personal experience. Of. Beginning explore. the strange conundrum which it seems to me that we can actually love very fiercely the natural world I we sort of take that for granted as commonplace. But as I got older, it seemed to me rather curious phenomenon because after all the natural world is only the the environment from which we emerge to species like every other species. Unlike. Every other species there are two things that they're not sure world has for us. One is danger. One is utility because the natural world can be dangerous and it can kill you. You can have thousands of people killed by snakes in India every year still or not show world can be a great advantage. It can provide you food and shelter and various other things. And all species are aware even if instinctively of these things but we have a third thing, which is that we can actually love the natural world.

What is special about working in sports? How much time do we have left as long as you want? Because I can go on and on about this Absolutely still love working in sports ultimately to me and this is something I when I tried to lure people to this environment I say I I truly believe I have not worked a single day outside college and even coming in here when it was negative. Ten degrees this morning. I can honestly walk in with a smile on my face. One of the things. I think that motivates me as a coach as a leader as a trainer is when I started out. I didn't have anybody that truly train me or show me the right direction. I unfortunately had to learn a lot on my own and I don't want any of our reps that ever ever have to go through that so I want to ensure that they are provided the right inside the right tools to make them better as narrowly sales people but as professionals add individuals and try to get the most growth out of them. So that's really. What motivates me and and how I get appreciation of it. I can see somebody from when I can not every single person on on our team. I had the differences at the different person. They are today when I started a year ago and that they're really quick to smile on my face and there's even a bad day at work you didn't take a look out in the field and you realize that it's really not that bad of a day.

"Entire team hit their goal and I miss my goal very very badly. 'cause I focus too much time managing your too. I focused more. Thailand selling ended up hitting my revenue generation goals. But my team in the end missed our goals and the regular season so it wasn't until like year four five Dot Kinda. Put it all together and understood from a time management standpoint the right balance that you have to have yeah. That's really interesting. Because that is a tough thing I mean you are you're evaluating staff your motivating staff. You're setting their gold. You're holding them accountable next thing you know it's like all the Times gone as you've got to that point though as you got that four year in what did you learn where the essential qualities and skills you know yourself. You knew what made you tick. You knew how to motivate yourself. But what did you learn about other people and getting them in line and getting them thriving in their revenue generating roles are there any special patterns noticed. These attributes tend to work really well for people in sales roles. Yeah Absolutely I. You know one of the first thing that I would try to find. Out What motivates people and you get a wide array of answers ultimately one of them has to be self motivation. There's only so much I I don't WanNa be in an environment where I have to look over your shoulder or anyone who look over my shoulder in order to do the job right there has to be some trust factor there that stems from self-motivation You'RE NOT GONNA have people next to you dialing the phone where you actually have to do it yourself The three main things I. I've noticed with with reps the successful ruptured I look for one is passion and when I say passion. I do not mean a passion for sports. This is one of the things that they're really gets me. Going is is every person who wants to work at sports. They always talk about passing. They are sports. That actually doesn't matter to us. We have people actually in our organization. That aren't really fans of baseball. They knew they want a new sales and they like doing it. So they sell the team and then the product they have to give but ultimately you have to have a passion for sale itself you know you have to enjoy the creating relationships the thrill of closing sale throw throw the chase and be able to live with the with the ups and downs and the constant knows that you're going to receive that's ultimately what I look for Secondarily would be Kinda coach ability and understanding that. You don't have all the answers. I know I don't have all the answers. I'm constantly looking for advice from my superiors and our leadership team to pass onto the next generation of sellers but being understanding of. Try this out. Try this out figure out what works best for you know that you don't have all the answers and that we're there to guide you and help you. I'm not trying to create seven other means on my team. Everybody has cell differently but if we notice something that doesn't work or hasn't worked in the past. Try to steer you away from trying to steer you in the right direction and then finally ultimately in any sales role. You need to have assistance right. And I really GONNA say not everybody's GonNa say on the first call either and so how you follow ups are and and being able to take a no answer and still work with individuals throughout Lionel. And how we can turn that into a. Yes. I think that if you're persistent and you drive in that manner then you're GonNa have a lot of success. I love those terms. I love the way you phrased that and I really think. Coach ability is such an under. We don't talk about it enough like when I was managing more staff like having someone who wanted to learn open to learning new. They didn't know everything he just loved. You love interacting with that person because you knew that they just wanted to improve and I love that. I love that you highlighted that so I have to ask. I've had a lot of friends of worked in baseball. I have a lot of friends that have jumped in and out in from difference boards and had a little time in baseball. How much more difficult is it with such a long season a large stadium? Many many home games is that a daunting challenge. Or is that something because it sounds to me like you're a pretty competitive person? You'd like to take these things on you like that challenge is that is that true or is it a daunting thing or is an exciting thing. Didn't quite friendly helps when your team wins. One hundred one games on the list of history that that doesn't hurt Having fun during the season either. I'm so I can't speak to. What a losing season at this level is life but in my curls opposing passers. I actually find it a lot. Easier being able to focus solely on the management side of things rather than the actual selling now. There are certainly days where I missed getting on the phone and I actually missed closing a sale but I get that enthusiasm and appreciation through my raps when when they bring in revenue on there and Luckily you know. The twins are huge. Advocates of a work life balance That's one of the things that will stress upon me when I got here and I saw firsthand so including day and I I would say I probably worked about thirty full games last year. Which is in drastically more than the twenty. I was working with the sky every year so it and we make sure that people aren't working extended hours that they're not really over during themselves. You know you get the rap in their first year. They want to stay in walk every game. And it's like you need to go home right. You don't WanNA burnt out by the end of the year because there's a long season it's a marathon not a sprint. I have a twelve year old daughter. Who's a huge? Wnba fan? Love the game but she is an indoor baseball at all. I have a son who's into baseball not into football. I have another son. Who's a football but not into this? Like the reason I bring that up is not just talk about my kids. But how important is it in sales roles to really know and understand your target market and go in the spots where you're most likely to be able to to close and find that audience because you and I were just at the national sports form and we met there and it was awesome meeting you and one of the things? I was so impressed. Learning Naughty sessions was just how well sales people can target and understand their audience. How important is that vastly important? In any organization that had been around for a while that actually survived and his thriving. There you have a good handle on their target market rate so when I started with the Chicago Sky the last people are gonna I was GonNa call you girls basketball teams because that are even covered and so it's all about finding your niche in the market but obviously understand your target market but then the market also touching on the markets that you might not necessarily think are for urination or they might not come to mind at the start and the basic one is is businesses if you can be successful selling businesses and board the you can go anywhere you want essentially but you have to focus on businesses and people focused on talking to the fan but most of the fans are going anyway and so in in sales revenue generation role. It's more about the people that are on the fence and who you can actually get join the team that won already buying. You've worked for multiple new organizations now in your career. How important is culture to a thriving were placed end and as a manager now and somebody? Who is steering a staff through the company experience? How what role do you play in trying to establish a strong culture think vastly important? You know I wasn't able to truly answerless two and a half years ago. I'd say that we didn't have the best culture in the organization that was working for we brought in a couple of new people that really transition the organization and showed me what it meant to to treat their employees properly and ultimately my biggest takeaway from one of my previous employer. Was that you know. People don't quit. Jobs people quit people and it starts from the top down.

The Minnesota twins doing well. The white sox have a ratings increase in fact the white sox are tied with the twins for the second highest ratings increase.

Dan Patrick Dot Com the Commissioner Major League Baseball has said that there are hurdles to protective netting in every major league ballpark. He is stated Rob Manfred that the league will continue to evaluate the issue but the different stadium designs pose one hurdle towards establishing a league wide mandate on the issue hugh I don't we we've seen some of these teams. Put together the netting down the line and span of three days like the white sox. I just get the feeling that the commissioners hearing from some of these teams saying look we we sold these seats the premium tickets and let's wait till the end of this year going into next season. I would assume as you start next season. Everybody's GonNa know about the protective netting therefore when you buy you know what you're getting some not you know Joe Tori talked about this with the protective netting that you know the complaints are people wanna get foul balls well. You don't want to get a foul ball. Decide of your head because you got faster pitchers and stronger hitters others and the reaction time is even less when you're in the stance and if you're able to do this I'm guessing at the end of this season going into next season. You would be able to do this but lower the netting in between innings lower the netting adding if you want to when batting practice takes place that way I can improve the intimacy of the fan experience there if this is a big issue but when the game starts the nets come up and that'll be the new normal and I I'm all for that I just think we're so preoccupied now and if you've taken a family to the game and you've taken younger kids to a game it's really hard to keep them focused on the game. They're all on their phone. You know they're not just sitting there watching the game in you know somebody took a three year old to a game okay. You want to take a three year old you know for whatever reason you know the experience your first game I get it can't be seated. You know that close to the field a three year olds not going to comprehend any of this and a three year old got hit with a foul and I've said before in oftentimes when we look for change it takes something terrible tragic to happen and then we get changed you know the play at the plate with bus buster Posey you break his leg. Well we gotta change that okay. Did it take that like you can't sweep the leg of somebody who doesn't even know that it's coming you know what are we Mr Mia Regi here karate kid and that that's what I worried about with this with major league baseball with the protective netting it would take something tragic yes mclovin and just to be clear.

"Evening. It's j h. Yeah. Ski info Steve Somers that here on the fan. Eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six and that was a much-needed bounceback start from CC Sobat, the Sobat deal Adolfo. I was there Friday night against the Chicago White Sox. And to say he was serving up batting practice would be kind of hit it right on the nail it was batting practice, and then some as the White Sox, which is teeing off. Listen, this stuff is clearly, not what it was for about the but I can credit for being able to stick around these last couple of years. He's put two hundred and fifty wins on his ledger. I do believe when it's all said and done, he's going to be a whole fame pitcher, but I know CC's will respect it. I know CC is a leader on this Yankee team. I know the players on the team actually love them and a manager. Absolutely loves him. How could you not the cannot start about? The playoff game this year. They've done at the last two years. Two years ago worked out great against Cleveland. He had one gem against the Astros. A poor performance of game seven last year. He could make it out of what the third of fourth inning. The Boston Red Sox in game for the stuffer. CC sobat. The is not good enough to be starting a playoff game. Could you sell me on C come out of the bullpen having a moment? Yeah. Sure. Black. I invasion, the Yankees playing teams like the Astros and Red Sox. And the Minnesota Twins stuff is not gonna play but said to mount Holly, New Jersey, our buddy CJ up next on a foul CJ. JJ because of making a rare quarrel at this hour. That's what I'm talking about CJ. You hear my voice you prompted to pick up the phone. That's the thing of beauty. I love it. You know, things go sped. I'm like, some other course as you probably know I like to play the long game that think this matches what you do for this season I look at the OPEL situation for the future of the Yankees, I doubt which is going to be a hot topic. You t h maybe a quarter of spot, which you might be good at really fast. I can see the possibility for him next year. I think it's outrageous. You look at Edwin Encarnacion guys, probably playing the remainder of this year, and he's going to go somewhere else. Like I don't look at Cornell Cioni supported a long term future, and I'm going to be honest with you. C J, two more and more. I think about Clint Frazier and the way he has handled himself. He just does not strike me as a guy, the Yankees are going to believe in Wong term now, the AKIs aren't going to give away, confessor fresher. They're gonna make sure they get something useful in retire. For a guy who can rake the way that he can rake. But yeah, I get the sense he's going to be expendable. I get the sense. He'll be on the move and the Yankees will have to try to figure out what do role on this team is going to be, but CJ that's bridge you cross next year for the time being you thinking about this team. That's one of the three or four best teams in major league baseball on how to try to win a World Series. I know with the one game obviously, you have to talk about the only way look at this valid something shop. Play the world gay dot com ball RJ back to hear about the straightening MBA cow with step, because this gets rid of any more that by drastic, it's object barracks. More gratin. That can't. Wait, listen. It's an app soon. No Brennan for the next CJ. I don't wanna hear about Culver. I don't wanna hear about Goral and here's the bottom line. This is a three player draft. You've heard about Diane, you've heard about Mirant. You've heard about RJ Barrett. You got to get one of those guys don't take cute. Don't reinvent the wheel get the best player on the board and bear it. Hands down three. Assuming Moran is going to go to which he's going to go to I think we all know that because they traded away Mike Conley. Now they're getting their point guard at a future goal. Gated guy could be the point forward. He could score. He can rebound the basketball he can play defense. He could do it all RJ, Barrett's got a very, very high upside in this league. That's guy. Go get. With the war, even going to next couple of years with it could probably pretty hard. One thing very simple. That. Player available kid before any place, taking the pick be dressed in a row, I would agree. And, you know, CJ think about how the Knicks doing business though, and look, we want to see how this off season is going to play out, but you saw report that Houston, call the New York Knicks about Chris Paul. And a next basically said, thanks, but no, thanks. That's what they should be doing a guy like Chris Paul. That would be the soda move. The Knicks have made in years past that has gotten him into a world of trouble. I mean that Paul contract to say is an albatross is being kind that is a hideous hideous contract. So you have the chance to draft. Well, do it. You have a chance to go. Get Kevin Durant do it. I don't care about the achilles still would bring him in I'd still be willing to take that risk and built a team that way. What's it out to Iceland marks joins us? He's on a foul. What's up Mark JJ? Always pleasure to listen to you. To you so much going on with the Yankees. Things that concern me little. Got to catch lightning in a bottle when you have it. He had issue go with a mission as much as you can on Tanaka find a way to die is much responsible control like that on five days rest. To keep them, you're right about that. Here's the problem, though. You can do it as much as he can. You know, like I noticed that their off days mixed in when you can try to tweak the schedule. But I'll give you an example the Yankees now pointing this entire week went off day. They played these three against Tampa. You point four against the Astros. Like you can't give to knock an extra day rice against the Astros, because the schedule doesn't allow for, you know, I agree. Now you can change the most. Okay. They lose a million half. Now, did they really? Title based that they made a place for Tikal because. Okay. Washy still frontline pitcher and pitching each. Okay. That he was come to Yankees, lose into the fray, a million and a half. They don't so World Series. Thank you. Check in saying with the fun warming teaching the Yankee have right now. That is not a championship from storing motivation. It's not okay. He thinks that it is compared to Houston. And I'm not saying Minnesota because Minnesota, you know made a point of before they don't have that great respondent. But I have to get somebody that's been a make them comparable to Houston with that. But more care where. But here's how I would disagree though. What your assessment I don't look at Dallas. Geico's one of those guys and I get the sense, the Yankees, never really wanted Dallas cackle that they were interested. But we're interested to appoint remember they could've found him in the off season. They didn't do it. They could sign them in early. June. Didn't do it now goes to Atlanta and pitches. Great is going to be glued for Brian Cashman, and Steinbrenner is absolutely not. But I think the Yankees have their eyes on somebody else. And I don't know who that would be if it were me run a team. It's an easy call it would be Masimov on I wouldn't take twice big game. Ability will be revitalized by being a winning situation once again, and Bumgarner strikes down people. He misses bats. He's got a good whip this year. I'd be on Bumgarner I hear a lot about Marcus Stroman lukewarm to that idea. Mainly did it affect it. Stroman doesn't miss a whole lot of bat sees a gamer and he's going to be intimidated pitching in his hometown in New York. He's a Long Island kid, but I'd prefer Bumgarner over Stroman, and the guy I don't want the Yankees going anywhere near is Trevor Bauer and I get it. He's got really good stuff. He pitched well in the postseason that guy's personality in New York to me has recipe for disaster written all over it. So I wouldn't be thrilled about the idea getting Ballard. But the Yankees and not getting Dallas guy. What does it tell you? They're going gonna get somebody else. I hope I have this, right. I want to say Shaya it might be Shia, but I wanna say Shire in queens. Do I have it right shy? Of course, you got to right about that shy. I feel like I am now you know, moving up in the world because I am not butchering one of my ten thousand names that I butcher. So I'm glad I got your name, right? Appreciate that. You call it. What's going on? First of all, it's really good to hear you during the waking hours, so that I can actually listen to you. Nice to have that once in a while. But that. I totally agree with you. That Madison Bumgarner sounds like the right choice. And I think when Fraser does not belong in New York City, he is. I, I don't think he got out for New York City. I think that he is being hit the attitude with, with the media. Here is just a bad recipe. I think he goes to smaller Varga team or just team. That's not New Yorker, probably Los Angeles. And he's, he'll probably be fine. But he's here. Now, I think I think we got rid of him. And I think he's, he's the centerpiece of any trade. You mate? I would argue that as well. I think Quinn Frazier is a very talented kid. He showed you basically shy in one a month month and a half with the Yankees, not having Aaron judge with not having Giancarlo Stanton, the he could rake the big league level, but is maturity a question for cooling Frazier, it absolutely is. The way you handle the media. The defiance. He's on following the team and he's following players on Instagram. What sell put that the day you getting sent down in a minor leagues. Showing up late this grant. I know necessarily have to be there. But again, that's not a good look, look couldn't Frazier's expendable for them. Because they are loaded long-term in the outfield. They're wounded Stanton's under contract takes his under contract. Judge is going to be on the contract. So yes, I know all three of those guys have injury concerns. That's fair. But they're going to be everyday players, if they're out there they're going to play every day, you need a big pitcher, he will get you a big picture question is, who is it going to be? We got a whole lot more to do. We're going to dive into the NBA draft. And I know some people are going to try to reinvent the wheel. There's no need to reinvent the wheel if your mills Perry in Nick sitting there at three so we got a whole lot more than that. We got Greg and singer from the MLB network. He's a character. Can ask him about what pitches? The Yankee should target the Mets right now down to two one against the Atlanta Braves..

But in the series, then fifty one year old is portrayed as more of a willing co conspirator drawing metals, I are in a new interview with the New York Post in which she slams Stiller saying he doesn't care about the truth. All he cares about is making millions off me. He's an idiot. Mitchell takes particular exception to how the hit series depicts her having a sexual relationship with both inmates. Something she in sweat both deny but Stiller is fighting back defending the series telling deadline. My guideline was to try and tell what I thought happened. She can dispute it, but the reality is she was kicked out of the tailor shop for inappropriate conduct for going in the back room with David sweat.
