"Roberts talked about ballinger's Homer. Pure elation, joy. It's just hard to imagine a bigger hit that I can remember really. Just kind of what was at stake and couldn't be happier for him. What a win. I'm just kind of exhausted right now. But very happy for Cody. Mookie betts was asked about how where he was in the 8th inning about the Dodgers possibly being down three O in this series. I think everybody's super aware of it. You know, it's impossible not to be aware of it, but I think that's a weak way to think of things. I think our mindset has been why we're going to focus on that and we're here now. We can win a game now. All it takes is a hit or two, and then you get some energy and then you forget about that you're down O2 and whatnot. And so I think that's one of our strong suits is not worrying about what happened yesterday. You know, focusing on right now. Braves manager Brian sent your talked about how his team will respond in game four. Oh, yeah, no, they'll be fine. I mean, they'll come out and they'll be ready to play. They're gonna prepare as always and you know, we've lost tough games before and bounce back and done really good things, so this is just one of them games. Luke Jackson who gave up that home run was asked about what he would have done differently on that pitch. You look at that pitch, it's a couple inches above the zone. What would you like to have done different with that pitch? Sad part is I do the same thing again. He's exactly right. It was an excellent pitch. Cody Bellinger, just beat him. Okay, at Fenway Park last night, the Astros and the Red Sox Boston with a two game to one lead, the Houston rotation, absolutely crumbling early in this series. Alex Bregman though gave the Astros a lead. The two O and here's the swing and a high fly ball to left field and Bregman's gonna.

"Of the game. The braves would hold a 5 to two lead in this game and they turned to their best relievers in the 8th inning that would be Luke Jackson coming on, he faced Cody Bellinger. One and two Jackson at the belt check Smith at second. The pitch. Swinging a drive. Deep right field. That will back. And we are time. Cody Bellinger dancing around the bases. And this place is going crazy. He got to an impossibly high fastball and he ties the game. The inning would continue. Chavez fires. Swing and a line drive out towards right center and it's gonna touch down for a hit. In the score is Taylor. That's the second he slides in and if an RBI double for Mookie betts the Dodgers lead it 6, 5. And Kenley Jansen came on to throw the 9th inning. Two balls two strikes two outs Jansen fires. Struck him out. Jansen strikes out the side and the Dodgers take game three. 6.

"But shouldn't game changing series turning to run home runs be a get on my back and follow me moment. And twice the Dodgers have recovered, have gotten those home runs and been like, let's lose. Like, it's just weird. It is weird. And look, we'll keep talking about the Red Sox. Complementing the Red Sox, the Red Sox have say what you want. Traded Mookie betts great. Guess what? They went out and they got guys who had chips on their shoulders and had personalities that that really put them over the edge and allowed them to perform in these big game situations. KK Hernandez, why did he leave the Dodgers? He wanted more playing time. He wanted a starting role. He was ready to start playing Morgan. And it was hard for the daughters to incorporate into him into their plan because of the depth that they had. And the Red Sox were like, great. We'll take a chance on a guy who wants to play who wants to know him from team PR. And then you look at you look at a guy. I know Chris sale obviously is was acquired a long time ago, but, you know, that's an ace that that's a great personality to have at the top of your rotation who's yelling who I know it's annoying to me. I hate it. But he clearly moves the needle for that team in that motivation regard. You look at Alex Quora, very outspoken guy, supports his players also, is it afraid to be honest in candid? He's the opposite of Aaron Boone. I know, I know we're mostly talking about players right now, but that also that also goes hand in hand with influencing the culture and whatnot. So I think I do think it's valid and I think the big problem a big problem with the Yankees is they're just looking at numbers. Great. Who hits home runs? Who gets on base? Who has a high spin rate? Okay, bring them in, cool. And then you have a roster of robots. I love Aaron judge, but like, Aaron judge, you didn't start saying like cool stuff until like the final week of the season. And it's like, okay, where was this when we were 41 and 41.

"Have got to be significant. All right jerry is here. Let's hear what else these guys had to say yesterday. In regards to the yankees. What's up jerry are. We are powered by super book. Now with better odds and favourable prices. I'll give you a couple more from cashman. Just talking about the keeping boonies that makes sense for us for both sides reiterate that you know i thought aaron boone was part of the solution wasn't a problem or the problem and listen. I think bearing brings a lot of great qualities. He's a great baseball mind and he wouldn't talk about also the fact that baseball family that everything goes into what he's a baseball. Lifer good collaborator. All sorts of things like that. He says and this goes. I think both of you guys were talking about this earlier. Just maybe at least boom. Moro's i know talking about how these other teams like. The mets are the padres. The cardinals were looking. He might be scooped up pretty quick. Be quite honest if he was a entering the the free agent market. I believe the number one managerial candidate in baseball. There's a number of different vacancies and and we would be going to market looking for someone like him so why not just retain him and that's exactly what they did. Cashman assessing his team is was the quote i like yesterday. It was you know at times. Looked unstoppable but many other times on watchable When they were winning and losing very inconsistent were the yankees the season as we know. We've been down that road obviously many many times here was boone with carton roberts yesterday in the afternoon he was asked about the managerial position being marginalized as we've gone through first of all say yes. It's very different than twenty years ago and it is much more collaborative world. Yeah he was also asked in terms of feeling like everybody else with where he was with this whole position. There was a perception because they had taken two weeks. That they're letting aaron boone twist in the wind. Did you ever feel like you're twisting in the win. And he went on to say he spoke with hal steinbrenner last week for about twenty minutes on the phone and new last week that he was coming back it was a matter of dotting the is and crossing the t.'s. And doing all that stuff and so he is back for another three years at least and who knows maybe more in terms of the playoffs they are not a part of. You've got the astros and the red sox now. Even two games apiece. This was the late game last night. You had the jose altuve game-tying hormone on the eighth and then in the night the houston astros put on a show after that. Strike three call. That wasn't they wound up scoring. They did it. On jason castro. Rbi single they want him scoring seven. Runs with two outs. In the ninth here was not the first on the controversial strike three. That wasn't that we've discussed throughout the course in the morning. I thought it was a strike. You know but again. I'm in the moment. I'm trying to make my pitches then facing castro. I've felt like. I was in control of the that and he was so when discussing it as well. He also said you just kind of move on and the strike three. That wasn't stunk. But you also have to absolutely just forget it and keep going. You're going to get calls. Go your way you're going to get some. Don't go your way. That's our job there and keep attacking his own. You know whether we pitched our goes our where it doesn't you know we gotta move onto the next next bitch and i let it affect us sometime keep talking keep attacking. That's exactly right and so a nice mature answer you've got gained five tonight at fenway. That series is now even at two games apiece. The braves built a five two lead on the dodgers. The dodgers get it back with one swing of the bat from cody bellinger. A three run homer. And then mookie betts couple batters later an rbi double and the dodgers wind up beating the brave. Six five as their season was on the brink. They're down two games to oh to hinson on now. It's two games to one with the win. Here was bellinger on his approach at the plate in that big spot to actually get the base hit in the homerun thank well faith in the lord of faith myself. Okay do either happening that was on. Tbs dodgers now down two games to one game. Five will be tonight. I believe i soccer. I'm trying to think the starting pitchers think rias is going for the dodgers and the braves are gonna go bullpen game. I pretty sure that's what i six. Oh i will tell you though. The the poll playoff baseball thing is so different. And it's not fun it just say these games. Maybe not these particularly these games take too long with. There's no low. They've dodger game was great last night because the way the dodgers came back there were two days away from getting to a three zero hole in their series and then the bottom of the eighth they explode. Sounds those and you know. Of course there was great. And then you had. Mookie betts up there to to outs and you just knew. He was going to come through as it has as he has The nets did not come through last night. They lost in milwaukee. After the buck celebrated the championship. they raised hoisted. The banner one twenty seven one four was the final by the way knocking brook lopez. Come in to get his ring as awesome saw is here for him. It was a leader. Yeah okay ride their new leader. His name is kevin durant. He knows they didn't do enough defensively. We didn't turn them over. You know i think they only had seven turnovers in the heck stuck on like three four while you know will only had twelve which is good you know. But they didn't turn the ball over kept ball and by the way spike did tell me that the nba does have hustle metrics if you go to the nba dot com box score so you actually can measure The hustle stats in again. I think rebounding by the way is one good hustle. Stap whatever see now. Charles barkley on. Tes charles barkley on tnt. Who's thrilled with the nets with the stance. They took on kyrie irving really proud of nestle putting their foot down. Say no. we're not going to deal with this half half on half off. He says the payday stupid. Alabama bug me. He's still gonna make seventeen million dollars sitting at home. Yes he is. I think boomer is made sure he told us about that. Over and over and over again for sure boomers he did also go after kyrie for not being vaccinated and not playing if he wants to go on this thing but you know people say he's like ali of all. Don't ever compare anybody that. I lead lead three years without blocking me. The highest rate athlete in the world. This guy go make seventeen million dollars for sitting at home. Yes yes. We're well aware. Thank you as. I've been handed over the head by that day after day after day. For how much they pay kevin durant to sit home paying dividends now very smart that's causing investment because not only that is signed long term. Yeah he did. Here's the stats. I know thirty points. A game joe. Side man i would. Yes spending money. That's alibaba alibaba baby. And is baba baby that is correct The warriors beat the lakers. One twenty one to one fourteen steph. Curry had the triple double in that game. And i would like to get to if i have time for it because this was a pretty interesting exchange if you will. This was doc rivers and philadelphia. We talked about ben simmons earlier. He's been suspended for a game kicked out of practice yesterday. A reporter asking dock after practice. At what point do. And i'm saying. I don't know if you can hear it. At what point do you move on from really seems like a messy situation. There's no point out to in two weeks we're gonna be doing but it is kind of like a while when a guy doesn't want to be cheap job well does it grow. We'll see and then he was asked. Why deal with. This is a good player. Elba's and so Listen the one thing i know about players are players will welcome anyone back in. Wants to be. But he doesn't seem like he wants to be in. And i know even with money and contracts and all that stuff and why we also look the other way when guys do stupid things off the court. There's your answer because he can help us win. Yeah i mean this. I know that boomer wants or thinks that kyrie is gonna.

Fresh update on "mookie betts" discussed on The Bill Simmons Podcast
"Always believe the there's a little moments during a playoff series that are microcosms of your whole season. The Red Sox defense is pretty rough. And they've even doubled down on a double downed double down, double down on it. During the postseason where they're playing schwarber first base and they're basically saying, you know what? We're just not going to be very good defensively. And we're going for offense. We're just going to try to score you basically. So watching a basketball team trying to win 131 28 games. But the defense, you know, renfrow, who has a cannon arm. And it's simultaneously he's Dwight Evans with his arm and he's a complete butcher on a lot of fly balls. And it's been a recurring theme all season. Correa hits a barber, said it was really hard not to think about Mookie betts in this moment, because Mookie chases it down. I'm not even sweating with Mookie and Redfield on this. Renfro is going backwards. He's going the wrong way, puts his glove up, and the ball just goes by his glove. Now, if he catches it, it's either a very good or a great catch. I mean, he made it a great catch by the kind of jump he got. But the point is he wasn't catching that. And when you have different spots in the outfield and infield that, you know, Bogart doesn't have a ton of range. Schwarber first base is a below below average first baseman. Devers is pretty rocky at third base. And then you have key case probably the only above average guy defensively in the entire outfielder infield. Anyway, the ball and tens over a 7 game series to find the wrong person a couple of times. And this was one of those times. It was to the point where I thought I was going to get caught. He kind of stops at first base. Anyway, he ends up at second. And then of all the everything leads to, it seems like he got the strike three on Castro, guess who misses it last Diaz. But I thought the Astros probably deserved to win today when you think they get nothing from cranky. They had nothing from their starters this whole series. Except for game one kind of and then, you know, the Javier comes in. Who I was really hoping they were going to use yesterday, I had a hobby or my AO keeper team. The guy's good. He threw over a hundred innings this year is I think he was at least like one strikeout printing. The his only thing is he walks some guys, but he's good. And he was able to hold the fort for them keep them in the game. It feels like this series should be two two. And you knew it was going back to Houston. So now we got this game 5 and it's this Chris sale moment. You know, yet again with this guy where he.

"mookie betts" Discussed on Mason & Ireland
"This is courtesy alden gonzales. Mookie betts superstar outfielder received an injection. That helps subside. Some of the pain in his troublesome right hip although he is not currently partaking in any physical activity bets has got a bone spur in that hip dodgers manager. Dave roberts revealed that today but the dodgers hoped to put off any surgical procedure if one is even required until the off season. Dave says we're trying to figure out the best way to get them back to us and through the season once we get to the off season we'll address the injury so it sounds like the dodgers are intent on keeping mukhi healthy or at least available for down the stretch and into the postseason despite the bone. Spur in the hip. Yeah can't decide if this is good. News or bad news seventy. It's not great news. I mean mookie. Betts has got a bone spur in his hip. That's not good right. The question i have. If i'm him is it manageable correct He actually in august was pretty good. He hit three eighty three homers four. Rbi's in five games. When he was activated in august. I but the paint sent him back to the d. l. or call it anymore the injured list. Yeah the forty. Seven games left boy a bone. Spur can't imagine that a cortisone shot or some type of shot would keep that paying away for long can you. You know. I don't know enough to be able to say what's what i took. His encouraging from this story is that david said trying to figure out the best way to get them back to us in through the season it sounds like the dodgers are hopeful that he will be available. Maybe even he's not had a mookie like year. This is not if you look at the season. Mookie betts has not had a great season for the dodgers in that story that you cited or this is mike di giovanni yup he says the injury usually requires surgery so obviously surgery would end is season of course so i guess it's a good thing that he's going to try and play through it. I just wonder how effective it'll be. Yeah i guess. I'm i'm sliding gooky a little bit on this season. He's bat in two seventy seven overall. Seventeen homers forty four. Rbi's he's got seven stolen bases. He's gone on base average of three seventy eight. Which for a leadoff guys fantastic. And he's got an eight ninety. Nine eight nine nine is a really good. Opic so even though. This isn't a mookie superstar breakthrough gigantic season. It's still a really good season. His they hate when. I do numbers on the show. But he's well above replacement level. Just the average outfielder in major league baseball so they can absolutely use them back. And if you get that lineup. Filled up with him and with trae turner in the lineup. Now with cory seager back. With muncie still playing really. Well i think. I think you could make a run at the giants and it scares me the the prospect of a play in game with the with the giants. We're now five games back. They've got an easy series. This weekend with colorado would not be surprised to see them. Sweep the rockies. And we've got a pretty tough series this weekend with the mets although we do through. Es tonight bueller tomorrow ensures her on sunday so the pitching breaks in our favor before. We come home to face. A really bad pittsburgh team on monday. So i think every game is must win john thanks. That's absolutely ridiculous. But if you want to catch the giants you must win all right so i was just thinking about something show. Tiny is going to win the american league. Mvp hands down. Who's gonna win the nationally mvp. What's the first name that comes to my mind. The first thing that popped into my head was to teeth but he's missed a lot of games. Yeah bryce harper has kind of been like back around again. You was having a career. Year is Nick casting for the reds gigantic year. But it's not a very good team it okay. Is it ridiculous to suggest. Trae turner would get votes. Yes would it be ridiculous. I mean they have ten spots on the ballot so it wouldn't be ridiculous. Don't they have ten spots on the ballot or the hall of fame junior for nazi mukunu junior private guys. I just looked it up. they both. We'll have forty forty seasons. Most likely i would imagine if you go. Forty custody janos to maybe on that. Yeah castanos also but tease playing in high leverage games might be peace here might be his year Yeah but i think every one of these games is critical. I wanted to get to something that you sent Today john actually will do it coming up next for you by the way we're talking i wanna do. The ernie johnson thing coming up next had some really good stuff. He said to the alabama football team. Now you say your friends are convinced that i am going to beat you and i am convinced that i am going to lose in our head to head golf match up on september the tenth. That black old. Well all you have to do you. Average a seven on every hole just average even on the par threes. You'll win if you just sixty three. You'll win yesterday. i shot. I played on the par-three executive course at rancho park and i kept scores legit. Okay i shot sixty seven so that sixty seven with all par threes. Now no longer than one hundred and forty yards. So if if you were able to shoot sixty seven when we play then i would be a real course. I've never even a real. That would be so it would be twenty. I would have to shoot forty one to tie you. That's a pretty good score nuts. If you think. I'm gonna shoot a sixty seven on a real course whoa here. Here's what i'm saying. I think i'm gonna shoot between forty and fifty. Okay so let's let's just say for the sake of argument i shoot forty five and i think i'm gonna shoot eighty to one hundred if i shoot forty five. I'm done all.

That may not even know that they're at a F C Central. Exactly. It defied all logic that somehow normally the 20 something year old sales team that writes this type of stuff.

You know what he's done in the outfield already this postseason and Cody Bellenger as well. But you probably know we've gotten lucky with the speed on the base paths, dude, stealing two bases in the fifth inning, which, by the way, they noted this last night, every year around the world serious. We get this steal a base, steal a taco. It's a great promotion for Taco Bell, but I also felt like when they started.

Siri's Mookie Betts, the first guy to do it twice. He did it for the Boston Red Sox a couple of years ago, and then he did it last night in Game one.

Of my trout, and I'm like, Yeah, dude, Mike Trout's That guy. Mike Trout is that guy? Mookie is incredible. And Mookie if he's not the best player in baseball, he's the second or the third. But I think Mike Trout unequivocally is the best player in baseball. Baseball. For me, is the one sport to where you can't look in the well. He's never even been to the playoffs. He doesn't get to play playoff games. My trout based on what he does much like Barry Bonds, who never won a world Siri's is the best player of his generation.

ESPN senior Major League baseball insider Jeff passengers going to join us Now on the shell Pennzoil performance. I'm Jeff. I know your Wu Tang guy. Cash rules everything around movie bets right now, this is ah, This seemed like a no brainer. Despite the current backdrop of the Corona virus, and all the wailing of gnashing of teeth that we heard from the ownership in Major league baseball, huh? That's kind of the incredible part of this whole thing, right? It's not You know what kind of used to these enormous numbers with athletes? Whether it's Mike track, getting 426 million past moms, But what Patrick Mahomes actually end up at 4 51 4 75 with 500 like on the guy 4 75 4 77 I believe we could be over 500. But those those deals Jeff are so different than baseball. That's going to be restructured in a number of years. Those numbers are going to change. He's going to make a lot, no doubt about it. But that's always the one thing we've known about baseball. The end number is the number for these guys. Yeah, looky bets. When it's all said, and done actually now because this year salaries paraded exactly at the full three year, But if you get pretty close to $392 million what it's all said and done, and the fact that You's going to get that much money in the pandemic. When a Sze Yu guys don't baseball owner spent a lot of time talking this offseason about our excuse me talking after Play was suspended about how much money that they're going to be losing. I believe that it wass Tom Ricketts Thie, owner of the Chicago Cubs. Who said the losses are going to be biblical. Mookie Betts is like in biblical times right now getting fed grapes by people and he has, you know he is the person who is ending up the best maybe out of everyone. In all of this, and it was, it's what made it so shocking that Even with the pandemic still raging on the Dodgers believe that signing Mookie Betts to this mega deal was the right thing to do. Yeah. I mean, listen, The bottom line is they may be losing some money this year, but we know they have money, so and nothing has changed. The rich teams are able to pay these and the other teams won't pay this and that It's just the timing of everything. I get it, But I don't think anything has really changed on the facts of baseball. And paying these contracts is they're still going to be an issue because we're talking about the big time players. Jeff are always going to get the big time money. Is it the member of the next year we had so many more than a few free agents really not signing with anybody for a long time. They weren't these big deals, but they just weren't signing. Is that something that's going to change or is it always just going to be the rich are going to get theirs and we're not sure about everybody else. Baseball is not trickle down economics. You know, if if Mookie Betts goes and gets a particular about that doesn't mean that people beneath him are going to be getting Maura's well and I think the effect that this hand It will have some facts. Like Francis School Indoor, for example, you know that there was a thought that would straight still endure that with Javi bias. That was some of the guys in upcoming free agent classes. Who were trying to get a lot of money that the pandemic is really going to affect them. Ah, I'm not quite is convinced of that now, after seeing what happened yesterday, but I am still extremely convinced. That the you know the average 30 year old middle reliever is going to have a really hard time finding work starting next year. Jeff passing with us. Our senior ESPN MLB insider tune in tonight is opening action with Aaron judging the Yankees visiting the defending champion, Nat's presented by Geico coverage begins at six Eastern on ESPN radio ESPN APP and it's 7 p.m. on ESPN, and we will certainly get to the storylines surrounding opening night. But Jeff First we gotta figure out what the Blue Jays are going to be doing here. They get the Heisman from the state of Pennsylvania. On this front and trying to play their games at PNC. So what is the most likely option for them looking like as we sit here today? You know, I think that if in in the end is the Baltimore Orioles are willing to host them. And if the state of Maryland is willing to allow them in and to allow 30 more games in the state that that's That's the most desirable spot. What's the likeliest? I think it depends. I mean, if you're the Blue Jays players, would you rather Because you want to play in a big league ballpark, spend more of your games and perhaps all of your games on the road and use those as your quote unquote home games. Or would you rather go like Triple a Buffalo and You know, right now Buffalo approval from Major League Baseball. So this concept of being a road warrior is very much alive at this point and I can't believe I'm saying this, but I think it might actually be the you know the odds on favorite this point for what? Billy James, you're going Todo. I could only speak as a a former athlete in this. Those scenarios is, I think I would want one spot to call temporary home for a while. Be it, You know, a triple a ball park as opposed to a big league ballpark. A lot of things are different this year. No, that that's just a weighted so we'll wait and see how that plays out. Bottom line. Though we start tonight, and the difference is normally the start of a baseball season is like the start of a marathon. Everybody kind of standing there and kind of slowly getting out of the starting blocks where this is going to be like the 100 yard dash. Everybody's in those blocks coming out like a sprint. So what's your expectation early on from the start of the season? I have. Ah, have a hard time trying to figure out what this is going to be like exactly speaks..

No, that's true, But I have said many good things about the Timberwolves and Kevin Garnett and the Vikings. So Scotch beer should be just fine. Love the sale of the team. We talked about that a lot.

"Was acquired over the winter in a blockbuster trade with the Red Sox was sent to hit free agency after the season. The financial terms of the deal were not announced initially were starting to get some information on that from a couple of people like Ken Rosenthal, in particular from MLB network. Suggesting that he had a source that is worth 365 million on top of the 27 million parades of $10 million salary bets will earn in 2020 so 27 year old Betts has got a windfall of cash, now 12 year deal through 2032 for Mookie Betts. And it is a head scratcher to some extent like during this pandemic, where You know you're trying to hold on the cash, and the doctors say no, We're going to go full commitment on on this player, and Mookie Betts is a special player. He is a top 10 player for sure in the big leagues, and the Dodgers are going to have him as one of the cornerstones for the franchise. Thoughts from Jon Heyman, also charming and that he's still working on this story. Eventually baseball and the union are re engaging on the possibility of expanded playoffs for this season has to be done before first pitch 25 hours from now. But there are seems to be optimism, hope. I was to go from 10 playoff teams to 16. What is this? A Twitter conversation. Tyler was like this is something that should have been negotiated and done before the players even came back on the field came back to baseball in business. What is this? You know this is something that had to have been done Probably two months ago. If you were going to expand a 16 teams, that's a sizable jump. You're going from what 10 to 16 So you are Adding another 66% of your of your AA playoff teams. And to me when you add that many teams and you're looking at the playoff bonuses and all that stuff. That's a lot of money, and that's a big decision that needed to be made a long time ago. We'll talk more about this during under the hood. It's seven o'clock at seven o'clock will because we're going to run out of time here, But we have talked about this that baseball, you know if you're trying to expand the baseball playoffs, this is something that should have been in the works as you mentioned way before. Now, it's July 22nd. You know what we should do, which expand the playoffs will know playing like If you go to experiment with 60 games, this should have been something that should have been on the table to do. And just so it's typical baseball. By the way, Just one quick thing about the Mets. The Mets have not had any baseball related injuries until Stroman goes to the aisle because of a left left calf muscle. Laurie to the aisle with the knee problem locket to the aisle because of back discomfort, Marisnick would left hamstring tightness.

"Teo here? Baseball? I do have really baseball. Jeff Passan was tweeting out some of the numbers. Have you guys seen this? Yeah, we were just talking about Mookie bats. It's basically a 12 year, $365 million deal. Because they're Tak Ng has passed and explains. They're attacking the 12 years $365 million onto the one year, $27 million deal he's currently under. Listen, Why is anyone signing anyone to a 12 year contract in baseball? He's going to be 40 That's that was the going rate, though, with Bryce Harper said it last year he see signs. What did they not learn anything from from the Albert Pools deal like they just keep doing it, So that's just over 30 million year. People have said that like That is cheaper than backs That's was expecting. Someone said that Betts was thinking about getting 40 year. But I don't know if that was possible, but especially with Cove it. I think that I would think that's a lot of money guaranteed that's saying the water was that it's like he was kind of like his eyes were bugging out. As like, You know, it's a slight it does seem like it's a slight discount in the Dodgers favor. I do feel like covert definitely plays a role in this. I don't know how any contract can be considered a A discount when it's 12 years, and it's not like 12 years, a $1,000,000 a year were talking 12 years in excess of $30 million a season. I just, I mean, is this just so that the team could spread it out? Because, like Mookie Betts is not going to be a $30 million player. When he's 40 years old. I know they open their nine or 38. They hope in the next few years they can finally win a World Series for the first time. You know, in years and then they hope they could do it again. Right? I mean, what? What do you think? When you do this, you want a couple of World Series rings. In the 1st 56 years of this deal, don't you while Bellenger is young and Betts is in his prime And you know you got Walker Buehler. You still Clayton Kershaw under contract and still young enough to do something. I think when you look at it, that's his 20. This is his age 27 season. You're really the next you've locked up the next, you know, six or seven years of his prime when you feel pretty good about the player that he's going to be Okay, so why not go? How much is it per year? 30.5 per year. Okay, Land. If you calculate 12 years, 361 we go. Let's go 35 for seven years when we got there, 35 21 245 million over seven years. Why don't we do that? Because after the age of 37 you're not or 36. I mean, well if he could make 365 0 on ly if somebody if the's teams continue to give out 10 and 12 year contracts Why send a 12 year contractors and bad signs that well, I mean, exactly, like like, like, Think about it. So what would it take? It would probably take you 50 year at seven or, you know, 45 year it's seven. To really turn Mookie Betts and his agents head and I don't think Mookie Betts wants to be a free agent. When he's what 34 I get. But Dan, I mean what one player wants and what the market is willing to bear with other teams involved. Those are separate questions well clearly know the Dodgers are willing to go somewhere and my point is is why is baseball? Why did they continue to sign guys? Two deals where guys certainly can't live up to the expectation at that point. You going to do that? If you're going to give him that kind of money, see if he'll take $40 million discount over the lifetime of the contract and give him seven years. So you're overpaying me now you're gone. 30 If you're the Dodgers, What are you offering? Right now? What? What, like Because clearly, I guess I think the point is that how about this Jeff? Seven years. 282 $180 million. That's $40 million a year. But I'm saving myself $80 million back in. I'm paying somebody $80 million more for three years where he's not gonna be worth it. So he would have been a free agent at 34 just pointed out. Not every baseball player wise, but you make up 80 million. Then is he thinking? Hey, I can't make up 80 million on the back and I got it, But I'm not sad. Listen, If somebody's out there to offer you 12 years, you take it. I'm not telling you that the players shouldn't take it. I'm saying, When will the teams get wise, knowing that these guys aren't going to be, But maybe they are wise. The point is that it doesn't matter on the back end. They understands. That like the fact that they have us believing in some way that Albert pulls his contract is a huge Elba trash clearly. Ladies. It is still such a lucrative game that it doesn't even matter what they're paying on the back end as long as they get the few prime years at whatever cost they get him out there more than happy to pay that back end amount. Do you think there will be any peer pressure the other way around like we've talked about? We all think that this is only going to hurt the Cubs chances to send Bryant and and Javi because ownership is crying. Poor. Do you think this could put peer pressure on time record saying Look, some of my my competitors out there the Dodgers market they're willing to do this. I can plead. I can't cry cheap to my fan base. I don't think this will have any impact on him at all. You know, Like like, here's the thing. Sophie. If for whatever reason, the Cubs don't re sign Kris Bryant when he's a free agent, and they say it's not, you know, it's not in our best interest to sign him to a long term deal. The money that he wants RU is a Cubs fan going to stop going to games? No, and I don't even know if it's the right decision. I've told you is this is a baseball fan. What seeing what happened with ST Louis and pool halls and how they keep on winning, seeing what happened with.

"The show we're talking about Los Angeles sports and different things with that Mookie Betts possible trade of doctors make lemonade I'm paraphrasing I think you said that the the Dodgers are the number one draw in town and then it goes one be would be the Lakers and down the road and I said I I think that's it's still the Lakers Dodgers maybe tied but when the Lakers are great and the Dodgers are great it's probably a tie I don't think one is really drastically above each other make love in well it's just whatever we talk Dodgers you know with this LA production crew also notes are flying in of interest feels like the Lakers a little less so to me smokers are obviously huge but the Dodgers and because it's notable too because the rest of the country doesn't care about baseball but like three towns are obsessed with it bring in bill plus you LA times columnist of course contributor to around the horn you wanna settle this bill number one team in town is that the Dodgers to the Lakers it's a regular that's not even close right now it's the Lakers by far yeah they they really just in the past several years until the Dodgers Dodgers the because of their TV you know what people can see him on TV so they get people excited about him in October would make a watch on TV but other than that you know it the Lakers they've they've captured the swap with mini as the cold wind warning greeting lashandra landing I'm curious about this team and the make up of this team with what happened with Kobe as they move on you know some teams when when there's tragedy it empowers them in Bolden's them where others they get sort of dwarfed by something like this the make up of this Laker team any concerns about this as they move forward yeah yeah that's a great question and I don't think we know yet I think lebron really stepped up big Friday I mean in my mind he became a lake or on Friday which is a five minute speech to the fancy was really engaged in connected and really get all the right notes but they you know what the Dennis a basket it what what plan sacramental and they have a huge call between there there's a there's a B. Colby tributes every place they played this year and I don't think we know how much that's going away on the and they had this happen again and again and again I think to be fine because again because that I think lebron's taken on on this mission on his shoulders in a way that I haven't seen before and he's really again he's really become part of the part of the town part of the team so I think to be fine but yeah it's a great question because they have to re live what happened again and again again all year long Lakers buying or selling trade deadline I hope I hope you're buying I hope there will be three congressmen get a shooter in a in a in all three and you guys I think we definitely need that you're close enough you know the what the windows there for them this is probably the best chance to win it I hope they do it again this is this goes back to you know that a man most affected by the Kobe Bryant death you know it's so close yeah but what the liquor and you know what's got it you know what it is is going through a terrible terrible time and so can the trade their lives even talk about later that's going to extend the trade deadline then they will do that course but yet can they make a move on if you need to make your own I don't think they have enough right now I don't know if you have enough to beat the clippers to be honest with you I think you need one more sugar and I think they can and and again I got a complete defense on the wing and I think that's a that's certainly did they got to do I believe what about the clippers well their whole problem is themselves if they can and it's weird because all this talk about load management a repair bikes and how it affects men standing in the locker room I mean these guys have a pool ball towards inquire Leonard and play together very much they have a play together as a team very much they're still chemistry through even last night the point one dental care to come back into the last couple minutes bay but they've got to get their chemistry should work out yeah I think if they do that though I think they're the best I think everybody agrees are the best unit down right now because of the G. Christina put it best you grant that they have captured Beverly which the Lakers don't have a password gradually yeah I don't know if kawaii ample George's turn it on automatically and have it like is their lower these are gonna be load management in the playoffs for quite Leonard and or Paul George and all you know what I know with it but yeah I I agree I agree with you I think the worst the clippers members of the team built on a fabric of hard working team work and you guys are on their own schedules and because she quietly and I think that you know well on the outside world looking at that you can argue that it begins after this summer players doing the same thing and so I think that's an issue they got to get rid of that it was all that pay what at the one thing that wall this world management off the clippers and I don't know that the best team in town they better win a championship after all they put your fans do with this with with with now with all the games all the games you guys have missed the critical thinking stand well we'll wait and see what we can see if it'll you'll see all pay off well it lets you know I'm sure the grand a surely hoping it'll pay off the better pay all his bill plasti from the LA times in contributor to around the horn of before I get to the Dodgers I saw were Vegas had the Chargers up pretty high on the Tom Brady sweepstakes there and also with the Super Bowl odds at you know Vegas using knows before everybody else knows what's your sense of of Tom Brady with the Chargers as a possibility I just I just can't imagine and I just can't imagine before coming here with no I know the moon to new stadium but they're a team without a fan base our team without a whole your team without any you know they they they played it quite sixteen Walgreens laughter the player said I wrote everybody will it's I don't I don't see why he would want to come here I just have no idea why I'm for the drugs would take him lead in their desperate for anything any bugs or anything to kind of latch on to the to the town to get somebody to pay attention to him but I just don't see how do you think you'd be a bad move I just think you're too you know and I still think of course you'll discusses on the show it knows about the state went away that's a vicious which championship but yet the Chargers they would love him I don't see what the upside is for him out here I mean he's not coming it's like saying you comedy LA in and go quickly angles it's it's it's the it's the ID and it's quite a force in that backed into going to only go for the ducks you know that there is no charges are not they're not Ellie so I I don't care where did what to look at what is taking a plane in there you know if he's going to be on the role Chris sixteen games a year and I don't think that's the way once in his career speaking of a star maybe leaving New England Mookie Betts and the Dodgers I thought the Dodgers might have needed pitching more than another outfielder bill but you know Mookie isn't a great a great player I know you get David price here I don't know if I want David price at that price but I don't know what they reported any pride yeah I think they could then I have to take you to make this your work you know I think they've they're convinced in the stats will prove it out that the really the what's hurt them it down the stretch the last three years is in bad at about two hundred it ain't on them in the in the in the in the last twelve playoff those notes news of the season they're they're heating they need a stud October Gator you need a guy who can grab the ball you got Copley order somewhat in patches corporate for that he would put them over the top in the cruise the questionnaire by towns asking use will the Dodger management paid ninety six million dollars take the replacing the deal them the hold up right now will you do that and I think the pressures on them to do that because they they really should have your call the biggest thing that has spent the money this is with the route you're taking a baseball the S. meter making eight billion dollars on your they should have spent the money get your call they would have had him if he gets that the extra thirty or thirty million or so on a CD sick of not not my money but they're making money hand over fist over there at your resume and so the fans that finally I think all the anger over all the October heart breaks you know its coarser buyers mad at the Roberts in the medical treatment now everyone's mad ownership and like spend the money get it done now the windows closing and if it means taking on beaver crisis money to a protest if they're to you it is still not done all those break was better because that's the hold up is David pricing is contracted out to say take him put him in in all of this using one every how we were using take them just anything to get what you get I think that's going to be good doctors have to make this deal I just wondered about that ball park with Mookie Betts Izzy catered to the ball park I think he's fine yeah I mean yes I think I think yeah I think he works here I think it works it works in the outfield the great Kielder it out now I I just think it it just gives them eight eight you know eight illegitimate this can last for years is that the best player in baseball to my kraut if you ask me and the staff will cool that out as I just think they need that swagger they need that stood here and and and more importantly it is very clean and it wasn't working out of state visitor with ninety six games in Dodger Stadium in in the in the regular season can he work in October can you get a big hit not core this team could not get it because he was like an uncle or can he do it could could could could be builders not the guy called down to is not the guy to get it's not gonna be a cool place so can this god become that that guy that's what they need and that's with the survey and I do think this would you know we will win I said this before it went when the requirement but shot with a great deal on a quiet garbage that's okay that that is what some of the top well I think this really does put toward the top this would make them the World Series favorite they've got to do this your and they have to do it David price began please do it in the pottery sneak in and do this no I don't I don't I don't see why they would do that because it's gonna play their one year is not the one the one you're not gonna win anything this year he won a one seventy games Lester's not making

"mookie betts" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"Stop earlier the projection system. You could just wait until the projection system says somebody's better than might trout and then go back two years and that's when it was i feel like i will be comfortable saying somebody he is better than might trout when they have had two years in a row better than might trout and in i would say in a her game lighten might trout. Being injured for thirty games does not get you in that necessarily like you have to beat him him on a per game basis two years in a row and no one's doing that. No one has no one has done that. Mukhi baddies mookie betts is the only person mike trout third worst season by per game. His worst was twenty fourteen. His second worse was twenty thirteen. His third worst was twenty seventeen so twenty. He's eighteen is quite a bit worse than his his career average per game but even that one only four players during his career have ever even matched that <hes> <hes> two of them are are mckee bats was bellinger this urine one is bryce harper so so no one is has gone gotten anywhere close to that point but <hes> i would say beat mike trout two years in a row what if someone beats him one year by a wide margin like also like in the summer of two years wealth kaz. I'm thinking mookie. Betts beat mike trout in war last year but by like half a wind or so which you know it's it's a rounding error. It's within the margin of error trout. I think was a better hitter than bets so it's were is not precise enough to actually make those distinctions really and because it was defense mostly that accounted for the difference that's even bigger error bars so <hes> betts had higher worse than mike drought last year but i am not confident in saying that that who's better than mike trout last year and in fact would not say he was just because we've seen <unk> better before and since so you would need at least multiple years or you'd need someone to blow him away one year or what if trout has a a down year and he's he's not heard or we don't know that he's hurt but he just has like a five win season or something well. Let's let's imagine a scenario where so like right now. Mookie betts for instance has he's coming off for ten point nine four year. I think trout was ten point five in a couple of more games so that's this year has a one twenty nine oh p._s. Plus <hes>.
