"At this point, we should be sponsored by Pornhub? Yeah. We should put icing into Pornhub and to see what we get. I think it's going to get messy. Brought to you by squat cobbler. Cream pie surprise. Ladies, frost yourselves. Oh my. With the pudding. All right, well, that was my only how to lose. So that's ten days. So that's how you print. So that was your thing about Moneyball was just cross yourself. Yeah. All right. So the first time I saw money ball, I was like, isn't this supposed to be about baseball? There was a little bit of no baseball in it. And I was like, oh, so I got to the end. I'm like, what do I liked it? But it wasn't at all what I was expecting. But then I think I saw it again on TV, and I was like, you know what? I really like this movie, actually. I mean, again, again, no little to no baseball actually in it. And I guess they actually use footage from the games. Yeah, yeah. I think especially when they're talking about the streak and hitting the 20 games and signs on for rowing. And I did like the title cards, the chapters that came up, like the streak. I think there were a couple more. I mean, they had some of the milestone games and stuff and the dates, but I thought that was interesting how they broke that up that way. But I really just liked just crunching the numbers, just looking at the stats, but I thought it was interesting them finding finding the secret mini game, I guess, in baseball and bringing that out more. And so I actually rewatched this maybe a month ago. And so I did it again just tonight and every time I see it, I like it more and more. So this one gets high marks for me, despite almost no baseball. Yeah. I mean, kind of the same way with me is I actually didn't see this film when it might have first thought maybe like three years ago. I remember, I think I watched the big short first, and I was like, oh man, I think I must have seen the writer. I was like, oh, Moneyball. You know what? Fuck it. I should probably watch this. The first thing I thought was like, did the same director do this? Did not. But I liked it because there was still enough baseball in there to make it a baseball film. Because I remember that streak. I remember that whole Oakland a's thing. I was like, oh man, this is kind of cool. I freaking love the movie. It is hard for me to say a baseball movie because it's based around baseball, but how often do they actually play baseball? But I still freaking love it. And I would have called it a baseball movie. I love the acting in it. I think all the analytics around it all are just so badass because it's just amazing that a team was built that way. And I do love, I love the acting, I love the way it was filmed. I love the little quit. I like Brad Pitt. I'm just going to say it. I don't think he's a great actor..

"And supposedly the GM of thunder is a big guy in his hyper metrics and number crunching and stuff. And so. How has that worked out for them? A lot of draft picks is all they care about, apparently. They've got their best player was Kendrick Perkins from here. That was a sheer number crunching. Yeah. Didn't they say they were like, yeah, what you see perk alert doing isn't actually all that he brings to the team. He does have us behind scenes. He's got some leadership. He's got some row. Kendrick Perkins kind of breaks that whole logic because it's like, there's no numbers left. Like you said. I mean, the guy would air ball free throws. Pretty regularly. He would start. Oh, he started. He would dribble the ball off his foot. I mean, there's stuff you can't quantify. Intangibles. He's got them in tanning. He could deal with people on the side of the face really well. And that's underrated. And God, he was on the ESPN the other day. He was the scowl he is, dude. I've ever seen. He's getting scalier as he gets older. So money ball grossed over a 110 million at the box office was a pretty big hit given the nature of its subject matter. We discussed this in the previous episode a little bit that this is almost like the anti sportsman anti baseball movie. It kind of deconstructs the mythology of baseball, brings it down to sheer numbers, brings it down to the spreadsheets. There was a scene in this film, you know, when they're talking to all these scouts. And they're just like breaking it down though. You're saying, no, this is not, we're going off this. I forget a lot of trust the numbers. I was like, we're going to put this guy up, nobody license because he's in a sidearm table. No, I don't like the weirder. It's a weird threat. We don't like to look at it. He's like, yeah, but he's one of the best relief or whatever it is. It's like his numbers now. He gets on base. Yeah. Yeah. So I sets up in the movie, you see a clear conflict between Jonah Hill and his side of things, and then the traditional scouts, the players. And the manager is Philip Seymour Hoffman has made he rest in peace. What was his name in the movie? I can't remember how Gordon Howe, but that doesn't sound. But he looked amazing. He had the manager gut down. And the hair for me. He was just built in that movie to come out of the bullpen. And jab his finger into the chest plate of an umpire. Say some things that aren't quite offensive, but are going to get you riled up, just don't call the guy cock sucker. Don't call him cock sucker. The one thing you can't call him. I think he called him a cock sucker. Yeah. So this is nominated for 6 Oscars. Including best picture best actor best supporting actor Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill are both nominated for cadmium awards. It did not win best picture, did it. It did not. Then when anything did it. No, it didn't win any of the Oscars it was not made for. It was the first of two nominations for Jonah Hill. He was not made for this one, and then Wolf of Wall Street. Started his ascent to being a serious actor..

"No matter what your school of thought was recognized was incredibly valuable. Yeah, I think they even mentioned equus because his batting stance, some of the older scouts, the kind of more traditional scouts were not a fan of him. For that reason, and they used that as an example in the movie, I think. Great, when there's warts, right? On the player, it creates an opportunity for people to discount that player in a way where if you recognize the wart doesn't actually matter, or if it does matter, it matters a lot less than people do. It creates a ton of opportunity and yet Kevin yous a great example of that just like Matt stairs was and chat Bradford and Scott had a bird. Well, somebody who knows was there for a lot of the events that we saw in the movie. What's something that somebody who watched the movie that you wish they knew that didn't make it into the movie for whatever reason? I think if there was something that I would want people that only know about the age through Moneyball to recognize if the only thing you know about the is the movie, I don't think you appreciate how this was something that this revolution in baseball where objectivity rationality slowly gained more and more market share and eventually took over was something that lasted decades. And it started that started many years before the movie and it continued on many years after the movie. And I think now it's common. If you're watching a game on ESPN, you see on base percentage right there. You see OPS on base plus slugging right there. So it's really integrated itself into the game and into the ethos of everybody just about. And it was an evolution that started long ago and only recently I think really has fully settled in it. And there's probably even.

"So that wasn't that wasn't a huge part of the conversation at the time. Now, of course, it makes sense that the movie would suggest that it was to have sort of a coherent narrative about what was going on. But it was really later on. And it was probably with a year or two years after money ball was written and published that that debate reached its zenith in terms in terms of caring about it and the emotion that particularly the critics of Moneyball philosophy were expressing their views. So the movie did a good job of portraying the slow start, but to me, the emphasis was a little bit inaccurate. Okay. And then after the start, they made a point at that all star break in July, the first half of this season, their goal was to be within 7 games of first place. Was that kind of what the target was for the first half of the season? I could see that. I mean, my guess would be that the thinking and Paul wasn't is very good with numbers and very analytical. And so my guess would is that he would have said something along the lines of as long as we're within 7 games of first place we still have a strong probability of making the playoffs. Something like that as opposed to we want to be within 7 gems. The a's would want to be ahead in first place if they were going to choose the choose their goal and they were certainly capable of achieving that. And I think they knew that they were capable of tuning that before the season started. So that would be my guess. I doubt that was posted on the wall as the wall. And in the movie, it shows Billy bean going around. There's a Montage of a version of Billy going around and motivating the players to get them on board and have patience at the plate, get on base, if you get on base, we win. And it seems to work. The a start winning, and even when 20 games in a row setting the American League record, how well did the movie do showing this turnaround in the season?.

"Then Carlos Pena did play for the a's, and he did get traded. But how much of what, I guess the saver metric aspect of that between Carlos penin and Scott had a bird. Do you know how much of that played into what really happened versus what we saw in the movie? Yeah, I think even in the movie you see that a lot of this is conversations between Billy and art how one on one. So I don't want to I don't want to suggest that I have a great window into how this played out. But what I think my sense is, first of all, and this is important for context. Probably the biggest distortion in the movie, in my view, among others that are close in terms of being big distortion. Art how is a really friendly positive, nice person, his demeanor was cheerful and optimistic. I didn't know him incredibly. Well, so he may have had a dark side that I wasn't aware of, but I doubt it. And the movie portrays him as this just really angry person. And the movie also portrays him as somebody who tells Billy what to do. You know, I'm not going to start, had a bird. I'm going to start Pena. You know, Billy is the boss, right? Billy was the boss. I doubt there was that level of insubordination from what I saw it was not that way. At all. I think so I think the movie dramatized that some. But what the movie did was take this underlying tension between people that believed in saber metrics and those who didn't in one way that was within the Oakland a's organization, but it was also broader. It was within between different teams, there were different teams with different philosophies and arguments between the a's and other other teams about who whose approach was better. There was a lot of tension throughout baseball. What Moneyball did was take the tension that was in Oakland. And dramatize it. In fairly elaborate and creative ways to make a movie out of it. I would be very surprised if it's actually true that art how refused to do what Billy wanted. And as a result, Billy had to trade a player in order to get his guy to start. That strikes me as very unlikely. More likely there was just general differences in how people were looking at on base percentage, how people were looking at how important defense was walks versus average.

"Absolutely. So obviously a huge disappointment. Nothing unique to the a's anytime you have a really good team and you gear up for the postseason and lose, it's disappointing, especially when you lose in a close series. And then we lost some of our big or big key players, giambi being of course the main main one. So there was curiosity at the time. Okay, how are we going to replace geometry? What are we going to do about that? One thing that was big at the time that wasn't a part of the theme of the movie was that we had a really, really good team and really deep team, notwithstanding losing giambi and Damon and his ring houses. So our three young starting pitchers, Hudson moulder, all of whom were drafted by the a's and brought up the VA's organization. They were three of the best pictures of baseball and to have three of them like that was incredibly valuable. So nobody was expecting the a's to tank and win 60 games, but they're certainly was some concern about what we're going to do to what the a's we're going to do to make up for the fact that they were losing primarily zombie as the who's really the face of the team that at that point in a real leader. One of the reasons I use the word curiosity is because it wasn't until Moneyball the book came out, which was of course about this season. So a year or two later, that all the saber metrics that the a's were using to create their team and all of the things that the book and the movie talk about. That wasn't really out there and recognized until the book came out. And then it really caught on. Now, certainly people that were very knowledgeable about baseball knew what was going on. People that were following the a's closely and Bill James was a known figure in sport..

We Should Be Using the Moneyball Theory for These Crazy Mask Mandates

"I'm talking about mask mandates You know listen I can't emphasize to you enough The Moneyball theory of life Please watch the movie money ball and that scene where the Billy bean character played by Brad Pitt is sitting around with the scouts and they're arguing about this hitter He's good at he's got a lot of pop ball jumps off his bat and then Billy beans sitting there played by Brad Pitt's got his hand in his face he's leading over And he's like he's a he goes guys if he's a good hit or why doesn't he hit good Yes And I thought to myself when I saw that I've seen the movie probably 50 times Not front to back but a lot Good portions of it probably at least 50 times I thought that should be everybody's theory of life The money ball for you He's a good hitter why doesn't he hit good And if liberals can only digest the Moneyball theory And apply those rules to their lives We would be so much better off And I'll ask you again with the new mask mandates now being reimposed in California and New York If masked mandates work then why don't mask mandates work If masks are working then why aren't they working I don't understand why you can't show us any evidence that they actually do anything And yet you continue to go to the well on this I'm really confused

"Daughter stuff the mixed messages. I i think there's a weird title card in the middle of this movie. That just says the streak when title cards. Haven't been a part of this movie ever and it just kind of nowhere. There's a lotta strange stuff in this movie. That doesn't quite lineup. The could have been done a little bit better and to me that means you know it it all pans out to about a six out of ten for me all right fair enough. I thought it was a pretty good from a life instruction from just a well acted performed and shot move like they're doing a lot of stuff with multiple you know layers of of isolation lighting. Doing good things just the set and setting the kind of show like how ramshackle and offit is versus how sophisticated and other one is and lots of famous. The sorkin walk and talks are all fucking in this movie. Like you'll you'll get really familiar with the few yards of corridors in between the locker room and the coaches room the train and the you know the training room and the all that stuff. The sports medicine room like the this is like thirty percent of the movie. Takes place trans on foot. Going from one of those scenes that other but And it's also like i said this is this concept of moneyball is transforming a lot of things in society in fact this advanced metrics You know is really exploded. Those stock market in the last years because a lot of these trades are now being done by sophisticated learning algorithms. That miss you know that. Get these fractional advantages on you. Know fractional percentage points bouncing this when generating money out of nothing and trading so fast that literally if your not next door to the new york stock exchange. You're not getting your order in fast enough to take advantage of the best trades. Which like i said. I don't know how i feel about that. Because like i never. I was never one..

"Yeah yeah he's he's one of his last. You know like not tippy tap last roles but he he dies a less than three years later and he's just amazing and everything and he's so good at playing like i said i don't think he's a bad guy no he's just trying to. He's trying to maximize his value and lag guys doing some crazy shit and sticking him with the team he doesn't believe in and if it fails because that's the thing he got all the credit but he also would have gotten a good part of the blame if he just on ironically plays this guy's moneyball strategy everybody would have showed it saying he said he's just trying to play a team that he can defend in interviews next season winter. I wanna be able to say well you know. Obviously i was delta's bad hand and you know how that guys but i did that. He he played. Because this guy is the closest thing to the film's got to a villain and they could really ramped up that. But i always felt this guy like you know. He's he's playing hardball but he kinda has to And then i is the thing that the guy that didn't is like the brad pitt. Character like billy beane. Like what the fuck are you playing playing hard ball. But i liked it and i was very shocked and surprised when i saw him in this movie. The other guy was often surprised to was such a big part of this. Is chris pratt Similar you know Varied run though like jonah hill has had where he i guess was trying to be pretty serious. I read that during the interview or the auditions for this movie. They told chris. Hey you're just too big to play this Baseball player so.

"And that's when you get fucked so so. That line is weird that that line. There are a couple of moments in this movie. That don't quite hit like they should because they're sending mixed messages. I think that's one of them because the one of the embellishments they made in this movie. Is jeremy giambi and pain and remember first name. We're not traded at the same time. The one was traded before the other nand in the movie traded for very different reasons right. is traded as a sacrifice to moneyball whereas jeremy giambi is traded in the exact opposite way. He's traded despite what moneyball says and so. I feel like when you get to that moment. Where brad pitt asks. Do you trust this process. He's talking about painting but he is not talking about jami win you. You need him if he's asking that question to be talking about both of them and i feel like if they hadn't had him trade. They needed him to try both. Because it's a punch right. It's a punch dart ceo. He's not trading just one player's training to fuck i e serious but also. It doesn't work narrative with the question. He asked jonah hill. What do you think about joan hill. But this guy has transformed himself from lake essentially stone her sitcom guy to like serious add. It was this the start of the turn.

"I guess that sort of thing And that's the thing that this movie i think ignores though maybe not necessarily to. Its detriment it. It is very much a cheerleader. For moneyball it says money ball is the of the future. Moneyball is how things should work in the best way for underdogs to get a leg up. It doesn't then follow that along and say okay. What happens like you said when the bigger teams start doing the exact same thing what happens to the players when they get money balled out of bigger salaries. Like does this. What are the downsides to moneyball. I guess is the question. I had coming out of this that they'd never even attempt to address in this movie. I question is like to like they're saying no bunce. Okay or you know and walks or fine and no stealing bases. And it's like we'll be allah the fun as the the flashiest. Most high drama aspects of the game like is when people said they're ruining the game like maybe they are but also maybe the game should be changed. The rules should be changed to keep the exciting things in you know But there again. That's like a so a constant frustration. The football turban tons of statistical analysis done essentially says inver except for very rare cases may be pinned deep deep in your your own territory. You should never ever ever punt the ball and football the fact that the average play in football gains three yards the fact that you only need ten yards to get a first down. The fact that there's four downs in every set Shows that if you just you're giving away twenty five percent of your chances to get those ten yards every time you punt and a lot of times if you do you know they got to sing of like percentage of chance to win a game like every time the team punts like the computer spits out that they just massively gave away a big chunk of a chance of winning the game..

"You know what they need. They need to the hollywood. I wonder how brad pitt would feel about a salary. Can although i know. He took a cut to get this movie made. He took a cut to his salary which is probably astra fucking nominal smoothly cost fifty million dollars to make. I'm cheryl at least twenty percent of that was going to brad pitt. Probably probably it's hilarious me as an actor to go in and play this moneyball character win if they applied moneyball to your profession. You could get like five g. Ahmadis for one pit right and five g. ahmadis would make a helluva cast the problem with that stuff is like and it's funny because Ball of this is when i was a big sports fan. Thus big bill simmons fan. He's talked by this all the time. Like the fact that like river phoenix dying makes leonardo dicaprio's career possible. Hollywood doesn't usually have like five. Leonardo dicaprio like five particular blonde chiseled. Well you know like they usually have a couple of these slots like there's a couple of de primo character actor slots as a couple primo leading manslaughter. It's not like there's like you know Thirty six hollywood teams that have twenty two players roster and a farm team of forty. That's the old hollywood system by the new system. It's like it's it's hard because like usually when hollywood has a slot filled. That's it like in you if you're the second best banana the near does copiers competing for whatever. The other guy can't doesn't have time to do. I feel like paying brad pitt. Ten million dollars or whatever he makes film you could probably pay a guy. Eight million and get ninety. Five percent of what brands have rooms or pay through two million and get ninety. five percent. brad pitt brings right. feel like there's there's some optimization they can do. I know it doesn't work that way. But that's what i mean like you know. I always wonder about roles and actress. Take if they're thinking meta data. Hey if this were applied to what.

"And but then he keeps himself at arm's length right by not watching the games by not talking with the players by being pure stats and results driven. Kinda guy Which i i don't know i mean the movie does a pretty good job at telling you that. That's exactly what he's doing. He's got this emotional weakness. I think for the game and so he masks it with an emotional distance from the game. Which i think you know because they show that he does have emotional attachment to the game. That scene where joan hill takes him into the video room and shows him this. Like two hundred forty pound batter who like hits a home run doesn't realize that goes to first base starts rounding it trips over the base ends up on his face and then like army crawls back to the base to to patriot tagged out. He doesn't even realize it'll ruin. I think that's why that scene works because it cracks. Billy's defenses You know he set up this emotional wall and its distance from the game but man you combine the the record that they just broke all time baseball. Record within like fenway park and stuff those winds though though that series of like emotional highs. I think works pretty well. Because you can tell the billy is invested in the game. He just doesn't he doesn't want to get too invested. Yeah and i guess. That's the part that i'm i'm trying to. I'm having difficulty explaining that. I thought there was a nice through line of like everyone getting on board with his philosophy but also him making little concessions. There's a little bit of that. Like the fact that he went to their aging star. There roy canton's got his by like look. You know i'm wanting you to be a leader. You know like you need to lose the ego because you're not you're not the twenty seven year old phanom that got the seven million dollar contract. You're the guy that the yankees paid me. Three and a half billion dollars to take off your fucking hands And you're centrally playing for free for my perspective. But i you know you want to win more games. I want to eke every last ounce of like he made that and also the idea that like okay you can take this moneyball philosophy too much like the have your stars. Pay a buck for soda. Yes just start to seem like there's there's a difference between lean and mean and skinny and pissed and when you're having these guys like have to pay for their snacks and they're like i've always thought that was hor- shit if you go through like especially you know. This is the difference like fucking blue-collar and white-collar fiber win into like an office job a programming job and there was like charging me a buck fifty for cokes and stuff. I'd be like the fuck is wrong with this place. Have a fridge stocked with mountain dew caffeine productivity. What the hell. And like sometimes outfits can get too focused on that. But i felt like maybe i don't know maybe is all show and no tail and the fact that i got it at all. I felt like the needed a little bit more. Show that like brad pitt. Had to change to like the second. It wasn't just the second. He abandoned the stupid just like wall the iron curtain philosophy and show deadlock. Hey i'm i'm in this with you. I've got like i said skin in the game..

"Cut art which seems to be the thing to do right. Get okay if your coach is actively fighting. You sideline the coach. Get somebody else in there. But he has no problem promoting some fucking intern or something head scout just just on the other scouts and show right right who are also of him but but he won't do it with our. I didn't know if that was some kind of them saying. Oh well his relationship with art is getting in the way of the pure moneyball here and he should be doing that but then you know he he finds creative ways around it but i didn't see why he didn't solve the problem by getting art out of the out of the picture out of his way right like the owner all but said what is like you know. Oh this is regrettable. What's your obstacle the goal would be like. Well you know mean the coach. Don't see eye and it's not like asking the remote manager to settle. The i mean. Maybe that's just not done in baseball. But you know what else is not done in baseball trading all your stars like three weeks into the season. Yeah to forced the coach to play the roster. You want him to play like the puck. You know like oh. I'm sorry it's gonna hurt someone's feelings if you go and the tattletale to the owner. The owner wants to win. Like make your case and if the owner doesn't see it then lay owner doesn't see it but like it just is weird like all this board swashbuckling macho bullshit like i was like starting to great especially since by the the the the middle of the movie that stuff all went away but the the movie they make a point to be like. Oh well this isn't working because the other thing is like it all worked against brad. Pitt's favor his character. The general managers favor like the fact that he doesn't travel team the fact he doesn't even watch publicly doesn't watch the games like look at this uninvolved. Cerebral egghead that is trying to do this. Stats based bullshit. He doesn't even give a fuck about the team. He's got no passion he's got no heart. None of those are true but he leaves himself. Open these accusations. Because of the way he conducts himself. And like i said i i noticed a change but i felt like maybe we could have stolen some of that Pointless daughter scenes The playland ex-wife scene and like put into like him realizing that he needed to dig deep and put. Because because i just felt like he was asking so many other people that had much more skin in the game to put their careers and their livelihood on the line. And he's kind of like you know. Maybe i'll get fired. Maybe i'm not. Yeah and so. I think the one thing the human drama that this movie does focus on the pays off. I think is brad pitt's Former baseball career where he's approached in the late seventies by talent scouts saying. Hey you've got real talent here. Wanted to come play for the new york mets and he has choose between doing that or going to stanford boat on a.

Joe Biden to Introduce New COVID Restrictions

"For the sake of your own sanity. Your psychological health, mental health, Your physical health. Ignore this buffoon in the White House. He is a buffoon. There are 333 million people in this country I I venture to say, and I'm relatively confident This is true. He is one of the 500 dumbest people in the country. There is no doubt How the man gets elected to the Senate and got elected to the White House is beyond me. I'm still suspicious about the whole thing. I have no idea. But the guy I have little doubt is one of the 500 dumbest people in the country. I need you to ignore this man and to get back to your life. This is the same guy who is going to come out later in the week. I don't know if you heard the breaking news. He's going to come out with a new set of Covid restrictions again because the old restrictions just again. The Moneyball theory that was supposed to work rate that didn't work. If all these restrictions work, why aren't they working? He wants to do them again. He set to unveil tomorrow. Tomorrow's Thursday, right tomorrow Thursday. Six new restrictions for coronavirus coming up again, despite the fact that America is done, America is done. I'm encouraging you in the strongest possible terms. I don't know if you listen to yesterday's show was relatively optimistic, opening. I'm convinced we have hit the bottom and we are where there's nothing but up from here. You know, I am not trying to, you know, sound like you're philosopher or some kind of psychologists. I'm not Sigmund Freud. Whatever, man. I'm just telling you, America always comes back. Always. Always comes back, and I'm convinced we've hit the bottom. People are done with this. They are done with the racism training done with the defund the police done with the useless restrictions that have done nothing to stop the coronavirus spread done. We're putting face diapers on their face. They are done. You saw it. This weekend college football opened up and you saw a bunch of kids say I am going back to life and I say to them Welcome back to humanity. Gosh, do we miss

Applying the 'Moneyball' Theory to Liberal Thinking

"Abide by the Moneyball theory on the show. Have you ever seen the movie Moneyball, The Brad Pitt movie Good movie about the Oakland A's little bit embellished in summary, but whatever There's a scene there where the guy asked a pretty common sense question. Probably getting used to it. Now, if you've been a listener for the 14 weeks, he asked the question And the question is this If he's a good hitter, why doesn't he hit good? He's a good hitter. Why doesn't he hit good were pretty common sense, right? We've used we've used that theory everywhere. If tax cuts, Uh if tax cuts costs the government revenue, then why are in tax cuts costing the government revenue? If school choice works. I'm sorry. If public schools work that, then why aren't public schools working? Literally Every liberal policy out there. You can apply the Moneyball theory. So we're going to apply the money. Both theory here, the listener who said this in his granted, he said. If Biden was bound by Trump's deal, then why wasn't Biden bound by Trump's deal? And he brought up which is a great question. He brought up the fact that Trump's deal to withdraw from Afghanistan with the Taliban had had us withdrawing by May 1st. Last time I checked, Jim, can you double check this? It's August. 20 says it August 27th. OK, it is OK. Okay. Thank you. So if Biden was bound by Trump's deal in every way and could do nothing couldn't strike back, couldn't hit the Taliban. And he had a lead by May 1st. And why didn't he leave by May 1st. Moneyball theory works every time. If you don't stand for defunding the police Then why did you stand for defunding The police? I mean, it's never fails. The Moneyball theory applies to just about every component of the liberal ethos out there.

Don't come from new york new york has they don't even. I don't never even heard of too. Many football players. Coming out of high school from new york is in rural areas. You know what i'm saying.

They have football stadiums bigger than college. Stadiums get so that's the really small towns is different. You know what. I'm saying in idaho high school. Football is big in washington not seattle. But like maybe olympia or something like that so you got these kids that are coming from these rural areas and a lot of white black whatever but they come in from these poor rural realized areas and this is their only way out is football right to watch those going back to Boxing vita said and by the way to go to the bathroom so sorry. i missed.

You know what i'm saying. He wanted to bet on it but he didn't wanna fight. Tom molineaux made that little bit more prestigious to do that. And you know the queensberry rules like you said. The organiz idea of boxing is from the uk. Over in england so that existed or at least it was formulating at that time..

"Listen. I quoted to him that the greatest light ever from the movie Moneyball because it's so simple. If he's a good hitter. Then why doesn't he hit good? That applies to liberalism. Now, now you know why Michael Anton how to write this piece? If you can't move yourself out of a blue state like I discussed before, maybe you can take your county and move your county out of a blue state. Folks. There's precedent. Main West Virginia There are Oregon counties now looking to get out to go to Idaho. This is not a crazy idea. I ran in Maryland, the state of Maryland, Western Maryland, is about his blood red conservatives you're ever going to find in Maryland? Yes. In Maryland, they would probably love to escape and join the state that actually respects things like civil liberties. But again back to Moneyball. It's a good hitter. Why doesn't he hit good? If liberalism is so great, then why isn't liberalism so great? Check out this headline at the epic times. Be in my newsletter today.

You've created here because the mit sloan sports analytics conference is very well known inside our industry but it is far less stone outside of it. And you and your co founder. Jessica gelman got it going fifteen years ago. Basically in the spirit of moneyball and the spirit of what someone like bill. James did in exploiting data defined undervalued players and strategies and every year you bring together researchers and sacred magicians and wants but now you also get all of these powerbrokers to somehow agreed to be on panels. And i'm talking about owners and athletes and coaches and executives and world leaders like barack obama who was the keynote speaker. One year recently. So i'm just curious first off what sort of thing is stuck in your mind after you wrapped up the conference. Last week. I mean this year. I jumped on the nfc panel actually learned a lot because we had the like the head of mba. Top shots ahead of so rare mark.

"You've got split into. That's as close as i will ever get to desi arnez voice because it has been announced that aaron sorkin is making a lucille ball and desi arnez bio pic starring. Nicole kidman and javier bardem. I guess this is amazing but also it seems kind of terrible as as ideas go. What was your reaction to this news. My first reaction is. I'm just glad that nicole kidman and gets to have a little bit of just the tiniest bit of fine. Did you ever happened to catch the prom. Was the ryan murphy. Film version of a broadway musical speaking of things. We'll be discussing later on this podcast. I sure did. And i was not a fan nor was i. The only thing that i could say is like when they let nicole kidman do something which was very rare in this. She seemed to be having the time of her life and she was like. I don't have to have a breakdown. Like on a courtroom stand and talk about like really grim things while being filmed for once. And i'm flying free and so you know i assume this. Is i think this project in one form or another. I think errands has been trying to do this for a while. If you google. They're kind of like mentions of this project. Bopping around and i think it's about their marriage and working relationship presumably their ups and downs in it. Because it's a marriage. So i don't think it'll all be sunshine and roses for her but at least you'll get to do comedy. Yeah i think that's right on the one hand. We have seen her do comedy a few times in the past perhaps most notoriously in bewitched your icon nora ephron i kind of interesting but kind of bungled but kind of notable movie. What were you gonna say not. Everything works in not everything works. I'll say next week we're going to talk about one division. And i think the bewitched conversation and the idea of using bewitched as a satirical vehicle into another story is new again so as usual ephron ahead of the curve there nevertheless nicole kidman i. Is she gifted comic actress. I don't know maybe she doesn't have to be for this obviously lucille ball. Desi arnez their story as showbiz. Pioneers is not just a comic story. There's there's a lot of high drama that's place there. The other thing. I thought of when i read this news was that one of aaron sorkin non adapted works to to screen is something called the farnsworth invention which is about essentially the creation of the tv by filo farnsworth and we know that the origins of television and the origins of entertainment are quite important. Taryn sorkin and to the kinds of stories. He's he's often telling stories about people at the forefront of a new life changing kind of technology or culture. We've seen it with steve jobs. We've seen it with moneyball. We've seen it with the social network. He loves to find pioneers and tell their stories. And there's no doubt that. And lucy were major pioneers and tv. So you know. Of course we're going to watch it and devote six to twelve episodes about this on our show. And i'm sure it'll be good slash not good.

Medical tech is the new gold rush for investors during the pandemic

"More people are seeing their doctors added distance during the pandemic in this long awaited to telehealth has investors intrigued there was already a boom in biotech investing before covid nineteen hit. But now investors are rushing to put money into all kinds of ways to modernize medicine from Boston W.. G. B. H. Radios Aaron Schachter has more personal. Medical Technology isn't especially new push your fitness further with fitbit charge to a heart rate and fitness wristband that helps you make the most of all day workouts and beyond. And the wearables are just one facet of health tech. The pandemic has shown that much of health care can be delivered at a distance and there's been a boon in telehealth platforms, online fitness classes, and Internet connected devices that are vital signs. Harry LARRIKIN IS CO author of moneyball medicine thriving in the new data driven healthcare market before Cova. Did you really have to look at these things and figure out where the world was GONNA go how fast it was going to go there all of a sudden now you're giving people i. don't WanNa say no choice but now they. Need these things and tech investors want in venture capital entities have invested nearly five and a half billion dollars in medical tech from January through June that's according to rock health a company that helps digital health startups. But there are those urging caution about the direction. These investments take all too. Often the technology has attempted to reengineer the process of care rather than leverage. The most efficient process of Care Jed constance is a healthcare consultant. For example, he says, it took years for the developers of medical records technology to get it right because early versions made it difficult for doctors to Talk to patients and fill in the required computerized forms. Constant says there's a history of companies creating what's flashy instead of what's practical and so the venture capital investor backed efforts have found them to be largely ignorant. There are also concerns that new health technology could exacerbate disparities in healthcare between rich and poor communities doctor. My mom is the former chief innovation officer. At Medicare's innovation center she says that smartwatch are fun but the kinds of devices that help most people stay healthy are often more mundane. Can you develop a tool that will help them track their medications with things? That automatically dispense medication for them and or something that will give their physicians more real time data on which medications they're actually taking according to rock health much of the venture money handed out this year went to companies developing online platforms for more telemedicine, digital pharmacies, fitness classes, and more efficient ways to deliver mental health counseling at a distance that's w. g. b. h. Aaron, chapter, and Boston consulting firm McKinsey says the speed of telehealth adoption everything from video visits to digital records means up to two hundred and fifty billion dollars in healthcare spending could soon be going towards virtual care.

Would Michael Jordan Rule in Today's NBA?

Would Michael Jordan Rule in Today's NBA?

"Kirk. So I I swear. I promise we're not here to debate. Mj versus Lebron. At least not until the end of the interview believe me I have my stance. It is locked and loaded. We'll get to that. I don't want to alienate half the audience before we begin so over the last few weeks. Those of us who have watched the last dance have borne witness to the greatness. That is Michael. Jordan and that greatness does inform the Lebron debate insofar as it has reminded us of how dominant Jordan was but of course he was playing a different era. Basketball was very different from how it is today which can make it hard to compare those two players or to evaluate how Jordan would fare in today's NBA. So let's start here and established that point of comparison. What was the league like Jordan came into it? Well Jordan came into the in nineteen eighty four and it was a very very different place. The best players in the League at that time or Magic Johnson. Magic Johnson Larry Bird bird again. Larry saying the crowd here. This is what came to see. Kareem abdul-jabbar was still really good Long story short meaning the the NBA was run by big men just as it had been since its entire district and eight of the ten highest play players by the time Jordan even retired centers Jordan was drafted in Nineteen eighty-four just to give you an idea dominant. How valuable centers were sixteen of the twenty previous? Mvp Award winners heading into the one thousand nine hundred four eighty five season worst centers so Jordan entered an MBA. That's fair to characterize as a centers -ly And obviously it's very very different than what we're describing here in twenty twenty. So how big of a deal was it? That the best player in the League Michael Jordan was a shooting dude. You can't overstate. How big of a deal. It was really weird. I mean magic had showed us that point guards could be great. Bird showed us the power forwards and shooting. Forwards could be great no. Mvp had ever come from the shooting. Guard position nobody had really ever dominated the leak or won championships from that position or in that way and again one of the main things the makes Michael Jordan's such a special character in NBA. History is that he deformed the various static of MBA greatness. disrupted to use the term from from Silicon Valley. What it meant and what it looked like to be. Nba superstar love deformed as a verb because it sort of implies that he bent the League to his own. Will he did that man? I mean he came in there and it was violent and it was beautiful and it was for the betterment of the future of the sport a couple of weeks ago. You're at a piece about why. Michael Jordan was such a transcendent score. Can you explain what it was that? Made that dominant so unusual. Yeah well it starts with the fact that he's a he's a guard and again to contextualize it against what was going on in the eighties. Nineties is is shooting guards in wings didn't dominate the NBA. We had the occasional superstar like Julius Irving. So I'm not GonNa say that he was the first star wing but he was a jump shooter. Long Story Short. He was a jump shooting guard. Who could attack the Rim and boy could he attack the rim? So the early part of Jordan's careers. Obviously marked by these highlight jump. Man Silhouettes the dump contest leap from the free throw line and Chicago. Stadium can picture that in our head along Dominique to Michael Jordan but by the end Meena Jordan would beat teams with just incredible mid range shooting And if a majority of buckets in the last dance season in that second repeat came off of the mid range jump shots that either came from post plays Dribble pull-ups quick stops just an endless array of mid range jumpers. Mj On the way away. Jumper and one scout told me a really stuck out is like I've been watching the last dance for eight hours now. I haven't seen the same move twice. It's not like he had to go to move over and over again. All those phase pretty close but man he he did it all but he did it in this area that we don't use very much anymore. Aka Amid Ridge and he's also very difficult shots right thinking about it this way. If you're going up against the Bulls in his nineteen ninety two or nineteen ninety-seven and year in opposing coach. Year number one objective is pretty clear If you can stop or slowdown Michael Jordan. You have a chance. If can't you don't So almost every night the Jordan played he would get the other teams best defender. And that person would WANNA play their best game of the year because everybody in their Rena was watching it and so he did. This eighty two games a year to put up the best sort of scoring numbers in the League against the best defensive performers in the league so you made a heat map for Jordan and then in the same story you made one for harden and you put them next to each other and trying to comparison it almost looks like urban and rural America right or like to to heat maps. That are just wildly different. Almost like people playing different sports one hundred percent in hardened deserves all the credit in the world for becoming the best score of this era but this era is dominated by sort of this moneyball dogma efficiency efficiency efficiency and when you look at James Harden shot signature. You see a guy who shoots near the hoop. He's great Basket attacking guard like Jordan But then away from the painting of the student only shoots threes. He avoids the Mid Range just like he avoids a shaving cream. And and then when you look at say Jordan you see almost the exact opposite remember that old image of Pan Jia and how the continent sort of fit together these two shots hearts kind of look like South America and Africa. Where Jordan is one shape all mid range and then a hardest jump shot activity is sort of surrounding that all three point airs. Jordan didn't shoot a lot of threes.
