For much of the past 70 years. It's a proud institution and one that wouldn't go easy on having lots of demonstrators in the streets today, denouncing the military defying the military.

"The country's civilian leader, Ahn Sung Souci, will remain in custody for another two days. The military staged a coup on February. 1st and people have been protesting it, but the big questions right now are why did the coup happened when it did? And what happens next? Here's NPR's Julie McCarthy. By the hundreds of thousands citizens armed only with indignation March daily against the military takeover. the escalating dangers, teachers, engineers and doctors in their scrubs demand that civilian rule be reinstated the country's defacto leader Aung Songs, Hoochie was arrested February 1st thwarting the decisive re election of her National League for Democracy. The U. N Human Rights Office is tracking more than 350 political and state officials, along with activists, journalists, monks and students who have been detained. Young gon based commentator Kinzel Win, says the atmosphere Feels like the upheaval of 1988 when the whole country went out to protest on the streets of Yangon just by comparison, at time, it ended badly. Some people shot and kills and the army taking over again. When says it is a once in a generation event, especially inflaming the young voters who came of age under me and Mars fitful transition to democracy. They don't want to even hear the name of that. C zero Power takeoff power historian thought Manu, author of the Hidden History of Burma, says over the past decade the Army had relinquished day today governing to an elected parliament. Ah hybrid arrangement that left to the generals in charge of security and believing that after surviving years of Western sanctions They were in a position of strength. But chief parliamentarian Long songs who achieved sought to change that governing model and the constitutional change she wanted was to have the army under the control of an elected government. And under the control of her and this has led to tension meant who says Souci was alert to the possibility the army would probe for an opportunity to overthrow her November's election set the stage. Souci refused to discuss any alleged irregularities at the polls, which the army claimed had reduced its share of oats. Generals took the refusal as an affront on do that feeling of disrespect comes after many years where they've also felt not properly consulted where she's had the limelight where she seeking to undermine this kind of set up that they've had over the past 10 years meant juices from the Army's point of view, the hybrid model might have worked with lesser luminaries. The generals didn't count on the 75 year old on songs. Hooches sustained Star power or that this daughter of Burma's independence hero had a taste for power that might sideline them. But she broke the mold and in a way what's happened this past week? Has been the end of that experiment to see if that system could work with her as well, innit?

The situation, he says, is difficult to read. Myanmar's military rulers have seized power during a pandemic, which has made the messiness of governing even Messier.

Biden Imposes Sanctions on Generals Who Engineered Myanmar Coup
"At russian protests. Plenty of people holding up gold painted toilet. Brushes luxuriant lose can tell you a lot about despotic leaders. So we head into the smallest rooms from history but i for the sixth consecutive day across me on mar. Tens of thousands of protesters have taken to the streets. They've been demonstrating since the military seized power last week. Overthrowing the elected government of aung san suu achieve. The army has claimed without evidence that an election in november one by miss sushi's party was fraudulent cinema. Today you've got. Where do ya on monday. The top military commander now in charge me. An online made his first televised address since the coup. He restated pledge to hold elections after year long state of emergency and he tried to reassure the public and investors that his interim government would be different from the oppressive That ran the country for nearly half a century. But america said yesterday it will impose fresh sanctions in response to the coup. I've approved a new executive order enabling us to sanction the military leaders who directed the coup their business interests as well as close family members and myanmar's biggest protest movement in a generation isn't backing down every night since the army toppled me and mars civilian government on february. First people all over. The country have banged their pots and pans at atm. This is an old ritual to cast out evil spirits which has morphed into a protest. Totally mccann are southeast. Asia correspondent. Many of these demonstrations have the air of carnival yesterday about one hundred young women paraded around downtown gone wearing disney princess outfits because they wanted to make the point that it wasn't just grownups who are angry about the coup. It's also girls. Their age and the streets are flooded with red balloons. Red being the color of aung san suu cheese national league for democracy party then lt in fact if you look at pictures today you won't see that many red balloons anymore. Because they've all sold out and how has the military reacted to all these protests. What's changed since we spoke just over a week ago when the protests hadn't started but there was clearly discontent about the coup. The army is trying to put a stop to these protests on monday. It's ian named true news. Information team issued a statement saying that action would be taken against wrongdoers who disrupt the state stability true to their word in cities across the country. Police are lobbing tear gas into crowds firing water cannon in mandalay me and mars second city. The police tried to disperse a crowd by beating them with truncheons and police are also firing rubber bullets. Three protesters are now being treated for wounds from bullets. And two people in the capital naypyidaw were shot with what seems to have been live ammunition and so as the military response ramps up our people frightened of what might happen if they continue to take the streets. Yeah i mean despite the carnival ask air of some of these protests. There is a deep sense of foreboding. Military rule only ended ten years ago so people remember how the previous junta crush dissent huge rallies took place nine hundred eighty eight and two thousand and seven and the army responded by shooting into crowds of protesters killing hundreds of people so protesters today are right to be worried. And they're alive. The fact that the military regime is up to his old tricks again. Agents from feared intelligence service or knocking on doors driving many activists and journalists into hiding at least two hundred people have arrested and on monday ninety districts including in the largest city and the capital impose curfews and restricted gatherings to no more than five people effectively criminalizing public assembly and last night the draft of new cybersecurity law. The government wants to pass was leaked. This would give regime sweeping powers to control the internet and effectively end free speech online so given all of those risks. Who is it that that's daring to go out into the streets. It is people from all walks of life. Teenagers labor's professionals. Lots of people are on strike teachers. Firefighters and health workers government workers are resigning en masse among them the entirety of the ministry of welfare. We saw extraordinary scenes on tuesday. The handful of officers in the police force actually broke ranks and join the protesters extraordinary because the police under the command of the army. So it's very unusual for them to be doing this and joining them yesterday. Where nearly fifty police officers from kaya state who declared their opposition to the coup. And what does it they all want. Of course they to reverse the coup they want to restore democracy and they want the release of their hero. Aung san suu cheap as well as other members of her nationally for democracy party who also been detained and do you think there's a chance that with all of this unrest who might backfire on the general's not just the response of people i suppose but also international response. It certainly hasn't been the fate of they expected. Mass resignations. i mentioned are roiling. the bureaucracy and form businesses are exiting the country so analysts saying it's going to be very difficult to see how they got some kind of status quo ante and younger generations are not going to back down easily. They're educated than they were a decade ago more organized and much more connected because of the arrival of the internet about a decade ago us leaders demands are hardening. They're talking about ending army rule altogether and scrapping the constitution which the generals wrote some activists. I interviewed said that if non violent protests fail they are bent on taking weapons and fighting when it comes to the international community in america. President joe biden said yesterday that he had approved an executive order that will pave the way for new. us sanctions. We will identify first round of targets this week. And we're also going to impose strong exports controls we're freezing. Us assets that benefit the burmese government while maintaining our support for healthcare civil society groups and other areas that benefit the people of burma directly but will these sanctions do much. Do you think. Joe biden has staked his foreign policy on reinvigorating democracy around the world. And that's why he's so keen throughout these sanctions but they are unlikely to convince the generals to change course just two years ago and nineteen the commander in chief minister lying and three other generals had sanctions placed on them by the us they proceeded with their coup. Anyway they're used to being isolated by the world and i just don't think that america's sanctions are going to convince them to change course. I feel that this conflict from the protest was in the army may be coming to ahead. The commander in chief is a deeply proud man and he will not stand by as the institution to which is dedicated to his career is humiliated by protesters and disney princess outfits at the same time. The protesters are digging in their heels. I think it's become clear that over the last week there's no returning to the quasi democracy at me and mom -joyed of the last decade either. The army cracks down and it's returned to the battle. Days of military rule or a new political system is going to emerge from the rooms of the old one. My fear is that the former scenario seems much will likely the ladder.

Myanmar's Suu Kyi detained again, without her old support
"Very sad news out of me on mars. Some people call it. Burma long story there. Were it's going to go with myanmar for the purposes of this show but over the weekend the military staged a coup They surrounded myanmar's parliament building and arrested top civilian leaders like onto chee. The commander in chief of burma's military is now defacto in charge. The military has declared a year long state of emergency for those who don't know on succi is a political leader a nobel peace prize winner who spent decades under house arrest because of the military. She's revered and also controversial. Figure so ben we can start this story in a lot of places what you like. Twenty seven two thousand fifteen nineteen sixty two nineteen forty eight but i think for now maybe we just go back to november of last year. That was when aung san suu cheese national league for democracy party trounced the military's proxy party the union solidarity and development party in these parliamentary elections. I think her party won. Like seventy or eighty percent of the vote in this threatened the military's control of the country which they had a lot of because of how your mars constitution is set up in so the military quickly declared that this election was fraudulent. There was a lot of chatter and concern and speculation about a potential coup. It's sort of increased ever since november when that election occurred I should know that election observers international observers don't believe there was fraud but this coup finally occurred over the weekend on the day that the parliament was supposed to convenient for its first session and not coincidentally Also means that mars top general ghosts from this lame duck figure who is gonna retire in june to a defacto dictator. So ben what. What else do you think people need to know about what happened and like despite you know all these concerns into predictions that had been building over time we surprised that the military ultimately went through in just seized power in a very classic old school military coup this weekend. Well i think first and foremost it's a tragedy for the people of myanmar. I think what people need to understand. Is that the competition between aung. San suu kyi in the military has never been resolved and it goes back. Many decades in the military's been in charge for most of the en marche history as an independent country on. She went back to the country and won a landslide democratic election. One thousand nine hundred and the milton validated and through in prison and put under house arrest is essentially and it wasn't until two thousand eleven that she was able to re enter politics and there was this moment in two thousand fifteen when her party. The ldp won a landslide election. But that didn't mean that she had the power she became what's called the state councillor because the constitution expressly prohibited her from becoming president. There was a provision in the constitution written into the constitution. That said if you had foreign born children you could not become president and was ridden with her in mind. The military under the constitution prescribed itself a twenty five percent bloc in the parliament which was enough to prevent them from allowing the constitution to be amended. So you can see what was going on here. The military was trying to wrest power right and and keep its economic interest by the way too because they're corrupt the enrich themselves all their power. All their money could be a risk if onkelinx and the nfl could reform the constitution and so since she won that election in two thousand fifteen her five-year term the five-year. Parliamentary term was very tense because she wanted to reform the constitution. The military obviously didn't want her to do that. You have but we talked about a lot. The ethnic cleansing of the hindu got a lot of attention where she seemed to not want to challenge the military in part. Because she didn't want what just happened to happen you know. She thought that she might be able to co op. Some of the military to make a deal with them to show them perhaps said she was in his threatening as they might have thought but this question was unresolved and she had a very negative relationship. But just a rivalry with this commander in chief. Minhang lung The two of them did not like each other did not get along. I met when i met with her. But when i was still government. She would complain about him that he he wanted to do something like this. She spoke about fears of a coup. So this has been lurking in the backdrop despite kind of the partial democratic opening. It's taken place in the
Myanmar coup: What is happening and why?
"United kicked off the year with an attempted coup and myanmar kicked off this month with a successful on me and mas military has seized power in a coup against the democratically elected government. There me and mars military moved in in myanmar's capital. The bridge to parliament is blocked by police. And the roads are lined with military and move the country's elected leader and her cabinet out somewhere behind the guns aung san suu. She is once more prisoner of the generals but even though the military swept a democratically elected leader out of power this isn't quite a textbook takeover even before this hour coup happened. The military was really with sharing their power with a civilian government. Dr van trend study social movements in myanmar. So we asked him to explain. Why a military that already had plenty of power in myanmar decided to take all during the general election that happens in november. Two thousand twenty. The result was a landslide for the ruling party of that time. Which was the national league of democracy. The first official results trickling men from mass general elections giving three parliamentary seats to suit. She's national league for democracy even before the final count is in the potty says it's confident of a landslide win however the military claimed that there was widespread voter fraud and that there were millions of ballots that were missing and they requested the Government led by the national league of democracy an auditor to investigate these claims of voter fraud. And what's also important to note is that there is the national local election observers who've seen the entire process from the voter lists to the election and they said that the election in street and fifth they have had talks and meetings with that the governments in the preceding days however those talks and discussions have not led to any kind of agreements between the two sides and since they failed to reach an any kind of agreement is very likely that there was a reason why they have decided to go forward with the crew right before a new parliament. We're supposed to convene. How did this get to the point of a coup. I mean i. I know the military in myanmar had been a strong presence already. Even you know throughout the leadership of unsung cheap but were there warnings there might be a coup so the relationship between the energy party and the military has always been a complicated one back in two thousand ten when they decided to carry out a political liberalization. They didn't want to have all of the political power of the military to be stripped away. Even before voters cast. The result is ensured. Twenty five percent of saints will go to the military alliances with the current regime have been made to ensure political survival in more than forty percent of seats. The only content as a candidates linked to the current regime or does not regarded as a fridge with the and government since two thousand fifteen They have been trying to tread very delicately in terms of how they deal with the the the military they try not to confront with military on various policy issues including the rowing crisis fall. There's an extraordinary scene playing out. On the world stage this morning nobel peace prize winner on san succi defending her country of myanmar against genocide charges in the international court of justice. She's also standing up for the say military. They kept her under house arrest for years. However you know like in the past year s We got closer to the election. In two thousand twenty the on sense which he led government and the different and the mp's have also tried to propose these amendments to the constitutions to give a very very obvious example twenty five percent of our percents of not elected and we believe that for democracy to behold complete all the representatives must be elected and that would basically strip away a lot of these different powers and controls of the military and wish strip away. You know quite a few of his decision making power. That is something that the military also find to be. Quite worrying doesn't mean it wasn't really surprised coup. I was It is always a surprise. Of course when you look back you can see various factors right. That could help explain why the military decided to take over power to to to conduct this military coup at this moment but before it happened everybody always had hope that people in myanmar or at least a majority of people in myanmar will still be able to continue enjoying their rights and their freedoms

And I think that Tommy lost Ella It's not just a win in 20 to 2022 or 2023 move. It's also a hey, Let's see what we can do in 2021. Let's see if you know the Padres of the Dodgers get severe injuries or something chaotic happens where there's issues with them where the Giants are all of a sudden challenging for the second wild card spot because the NL East is going to be tough. There's gonna be teams that emerge from there, but you look at this light up and Tommy was selling. Let's assume he hits leadoff for the Giants against right handed pitchers. You remember lineup that has Mikey's Trump Ski Brandon Belt, Alex Dick. Person Tommy La Stella and Brandon Crawford probably getting down in the seventh race lot. That's gonna be really good. That's gonna be a really, really tough light up on these pictures in the National League. And so the patients the plate discipline the amount of balls that are in play with these guys. It's just a group that kind of syncs up really well, so he was always going to be the most obvious edition. And I think that it's no surprise to anyone who follows the Giants, whose followed far anxieties tenure that he was the guy they ultimately settled on for their left handed back. Yeah, I think the question

"Was in everything it ended up on a stamp. When Bobby Thomson hit his home run it. Was this incredible shock that went out through the country and it was one of the only moments that everybody remembered where they were when it happened. And when I was writing my book I had fun I literally would just ask strangers on the street. Who are maybe seventy or eighty years old if they remembered where they were when Bobby Thomson hit the home run and a great majority of men and women both. They did remember on death row at sing. Sing the rosenbergs spies. Ethel and Julius. They wrote notes to each other about this game. There were to the White House. There were connections to the mob. They're all the great writers can sign back and so it transcended sports and then tell people at the moment wasn't exactly like they thought it was that actually this team was cheating was something that was very complicated for people to sort of take him and I think we now know looking back that the playing field wasn't as uneven as people like to thank. Everybody was almost everybody was cheating there. Players who for ethical reasons moral reasons wouldn't have have it in some of them talk about that to this day that not cheating probably ended their career before every pitch of every game. The catcher who is squatting behind home plate wiggles his fingers between his thighs and he is thereby communicating to the pitcher which pitch to throw. It has always been considered an art. A few have a base runner on second and that they runner can peek and see the signs and somehow develop a system. Rela- system That tips the hitter as to what's coming there's always been a little larceny mixed in with baseball. Lore there is the Doctor Bat. There's the hidden ball trick that. Of course there's steroids so cheating in all sorts of ways is a part of the game when you start adding elements that enhance that technology if you were if you're using technology to steal signs then that is most decidedly not allowed and the one thousand nine hundred fifty.

"Subscribe to corona virus daily from NPR. It's one a I'm todd's will like the national recording preservation. Act of two thousand makes the job of my next guest all the more challenging the athletes out the process by which the Library of Congress selects twenty five culturally historically or aesthetically significant recordings for the national recording registry and happens every year and this year's list is out today in the person who has the final say is Carla Hayden. She's America's Fourteenth Librarian of Congress. Carla HAYDEN WELCOME TO ONE A. It's great to be here and for people like us who are so immersed in sound and the sound experience for news for history for culture. It couldn't be more exciting so I'm glad you're here. Thanks for coming to our studio so before we dig into the process and this year's picks of all the responsibilities you have is this one burdensome. Does it take the most time for you tell me about it? It doesn't take the most time but it's one of the most enjoyable. I'm the child of two classically. Trained musicians No talent obviously. I'm the librarian. Lot the idea that sound recordings and they're not just musical recordings they actually a football game. A baseball game shows spoken. Word would be immortalized in this way is ferry I think personally and professionally rewarding for me are all of these recordings things that average people would immediately recognize. Are they all famous or are they important? In other ways there some are famous summer and portent in other ways because they're documenting a piece of history a piece of culture that people are maybe not that familiar with and that's another thing about this election of twenty five each year. It's not saying that their other recordings that aren't being preserved it saying that these are on a registry to call attention to genre a time place and to also give some recognition to some of the more popular recordings and one that is on this year's list I think will generate. It's definitely a cultural landmark. Now I mean. The Library of Congress is known for a lot of things but it's known for volume. I mean millions millions upon millions upon hundreds of millions of publications. And I know that in your sound archives you must have at least thousands tens of thousands. How do you go about the process of of winnowing? It down to something close to fifty so that you can get to twenty-five each year and it's really when you think about one hundred and seventy one million items that includes the papers or twenty three presidents in thirty six Supreme Court justices and Rosa parks papers so it's manuscripts actual volumes hair. Just we have a lock of Beethoven's hair only that are known to exist and so you have four million recordings that the library bound conserves and preserves but just so many depend on a national preservation board in these people who are experts in the field have experienced and also public nominations. And that's why I'm so glad to talk with you. Because we want the public to be involved in this and for instance this year we had eight hundred fifty nominations. And there's some recordings and some historic moments that have been on the list before and this is the year that it might get off talk a little bit about how you approach the project of of getting a broad kind of coverage of American culture when you choose these winners or these nominees each year That there are lots of different ways to look at the kaleidoscope of the American experience. It's a big job and I wonder how you approach it when I look at a list and I see Memphis Minnie. Nineteen forty one the blues. It's called me and my chauffeur blues its way of saying. Wow not only is the title something but who was Memphis Minnie? So you want to make sure that people are possibly intrigued and want to dig a little deeper and find out that anybody else record that and who was Memphis Minnie? So you want to end with Selena. For instance There was a very popular film about her. That really introduced her to a broader audience. She was time that she died. She was just getting ready to get into more of a crossover mold. And so that idea that you would have something that she actually recorded will bring back her music as well. So it's looking at different genres different times and trying to have a balance you balance the the famous with the unknown. Try to try to bring people to a new experience right now. You're a baseball fan. I'm a baseball fan too. I understand you have mixed allegiance the orioles and the cubs time in Chicago and also the Saint Louis Cardinals. A lot of mixed allegiance makes allegiance because my grandfather was a rabid baseball fan and so the Classic Nineteen Fifty One dashingly Tiebreaker. The New York giants and the Brooklyn Dodgers and the excitement in the announcer's voice was something. It's the action on the field but also the emotion of the moment of that game was played at the Polo grounds of Ballpark. That no longer exists in the Bronx so this pick for me baseball fan. Also now. I'm a fan of the twenty nineteen world series champion Washington nationals. And don't forget the dove real. Try Not to forget the cubs. I'm nationals fan but baseball has been in my family to for a long time and and knowing that this shot heard round the world is one of the top picks of this year. Just gets to me. Because that's where my dad was as a kid and that's where you think about the power of the announcer because think of all the people who weren't all the games weren't televised as we have now the way they are now and so you had people that were just listening and the announcer had to convey what was going on. And just you just wanted to jump up yourself because it was the tension and all of this and the disappointment that the announcer the radio announcer had that power and probably I think for millions of Americans. Even if they're not baseball fans this is. This is one of those windows into old baseball. That many of US share. Maybe one is like Babe Ruth taking practice swings some old black and white video and I think this is one even for people who aren't into the game this that excitement of listing and now when we have so much interest in audio and audible books and just listening and podcasts. It's wonderful to bring people back to something that was just iconic and with sound recordings what you're also bringing in our other ways for people to get at history so Memphis Minnie and the blues. How did the blue star at has that tire connection to the African American experience? And why were they singing the blues and it I think is a time when we are looking at culture and we're looking at history and saying are there other stories to be told are their stories that we need to here and who's telling those stories and are we listening? I think we're also looking for what's true about our common experience. We're in an age of disinformation. Where in an age of division and there are a lot of there are millions of things in that library of Congress and increasingly so that that our our common history and that are just true. And when you think about music in particular the fact that we could sit here and both sing the same song and kind of move around a Ymca and make things and we're different visually. You might think and there might be some cultural differences in terms of when we grew up age differences all of those things but we're united by music people united by food there other things that we can all point to that unites and music is definitely one of them. We talk about books all the time on this program because we love books and we love authors but what I love even more. Because I'm in this. Business is the history of sound. I can't tell you how happy I am that you came to share it with us and that we get a chance to share it with millions of people hopefully will visit you at the Library of Congress and and listen for themselves. Dr Carla Hayden Librarian of Congress. Thank you for being here. Thank you Carla. Hayden is America's Fourteenth Librarian of Congress. In more normal times tomorrow would be opening day of the Twenty Twenty Major League baseball season. We're going to have to wait a few more weeks to know when we'll see the first pitch of twenty twenty you on the other hand need only wait a minute to hear the first.

You're really is handy. As you think more from Kelli grant, consumer reporter at CNBC dot com. Kelli, what do you have for a lot of homeowners? They just feel like they have these great resources out there. So why not give it a shot yourself? But if you're gonna go this route a there's a lot that you would want stink about disfigure out. You know, my really saving money or am. I getting myself into a situation that's gonna cost more in the long run. Or that's essentially dangerous the type of project matters to hear. I'd imagine it does. Well, they looked at the numbers. And they said, do, you know, the folks who tend to do do the DIY route spend a lot less, but it's hard to break that out because either they do know that people who go that route versus hiring pro. They are also a little more comfortable doing smaller projects. So just because the typical DIY or spend a lot less on their bathroom remodel for. Example doesn't mean that they see a lot of money. It might just mean that you know, they didn't do a full remodel. Maybe they replaced the toilet. Or they did some smaller projects there that they were comfortable with versus a major overhaul. So the professional contractors are kind of standing by in the wings because he's a statin the story that says forty-three percent admit that they've messed up one of these projects. Oh, for sure, you know. And actually, it's funny that we're having this conversation now because we just found box DIY project in our house last night from the previous homeowners who improperly installed shelving in the closet, but is now falling apart. But that's neither here nor there. We do here that consumers can mess these up. So you know, we were talking to folks about like, how do you figure out if this is that you should go? We talked to the folks that young house love, and they were saying what you really need to think about as well, what is that worst case scenario, if you missed this up because there's obviously a lot of safety things that could go wrong, especially if you're talking about structural work, electrical work plumbing, work at that, you really need to be aware of what the risks are that you know to not have the skill. Can you take the right precautions or should you just be safe and have someone else do this? We're speaking with Kelli grant, consumer reporter at CNBC dot com. We're talking about taking on DIY projects. There was a point in the story to that mentioned you should invest invaluable skills. Meaning what well there's just some things that people will end up continuing to hire folks to do that. Maybe it is worth it that you would figure out how to paint or that you would understand. How do you hang things like pictures or artwork or shows in your home? You know using. Drills in wall anchors and all of those things. How do you hang a window treatment just certain skills over time that would add up for some experts? You know, if you're if you're really doing a lot of home projects that may not even be bigger ticket things like doing some tiling that that could really save you a lot of cash, and you know, because you have those great resources out there.

"Kemp Hernandez, Puig Barnes. Exactly the same. This is only the second time in baseball World Series history that a team has started. All right handed hitters. This has not been done since yesterday. History. This is having, is there somebody else you think they ought to be starting. That's not. There is. I think I think bellawood KiKi Hernandez has not at all been good at the plate during this postseason and I would, you know, I know it's lefty lefty, you know, and that's, you know, the computers probably saying something different, but he was the National League championship series most valuable player. He plays a really good center field. I would not hesitate to have Bellinger in there instead of TK or NAN the defense really the more more than the hitting bellinger's great defense. My point is, I think the the batting you can make an argument for either guy. I think this point given how poorly they've played defense over the course of the playoffs at different points in the difficulty of playing outfield at Fenway. You gotta give consideration to putting your best defensive line-up out there before you even think about who's hitting. Well, the thing about that. The thing about the defense is the outfield played it perfectly. There were there were no complaints of my last night. In fact. Cheeky. There's that that sort of not right, right by the Red Sox bullpen and Kika played that ball as well as it could be played. There's not a catch to be made there. He caught it off the wall, and that was the right place. So defensively they handled the Fenway park outfield and it's even funkier you know, when you see them person, it's even funkier the the, obviously the green monster. But then you get over towards the center. And there's like a triangle there where God knows of ball goes in there who knows where it's coming out, and then they Red Sox bullpen juts out into right center field. And then the wall, which is right below where I was sitting in in. In left field is really in right field is really, really low. So there are a lot of ways to go wrong in that in that outfield the stadium is like being in a time capsule. Oh yeah. Fenway park is like you're going back in time to time, went before lights, and you know, did you did you get a chance to to to sit in any of the actual like fancies? I went up to the top deck at one point. There's a top deck in in right field that I was able to climb up to, which was which was cool. I'm in regular c.. So you are okay? Yeah. Well, I'm in regular. See they built right? They build usually build like an auxiliary, press box out in the in the, you know, the regular seats for that. I just wasn't sure of like that was part of the, you know, they've done some renovations at different times and not every seat in that stadium I think is exactly the same, but. There. There were some fat ass reporters trying to sit in those regular CNN is not easy like you get down into the original stuff like down in the lower deck and all that, like the amount of humanity that squeezed in those cases, although you never sit down will they can't. Caesar's small, and they seem to know the word two words to every single song will they play the same eight songs every single game. And I was there for sweet Caroline, which I got admit. Kind of cool. It's fun. It's a great place to see a game. Shame. It's waste is everywhere. It's a shame. It's wasted on Red Sox fans. And I know it really is insufferable in Sarah. I mean, there really are the worst because like how many it was like a hundred and something years. They didn't win, and then they win one time. And now they become the most entitled people in the face of the planet. They really are shut up. Yeah. They are credibly in time. They're awful. They're insufferable people. All of them.

"There might have to play three playing games and all this. Although, you know what's weird is fan graphs, which is a great site has got the dodgers with the highest probability of going to the World Series or winning the World Series of any team in the National League and they've got the most. And that makes sense. Yeah, because you know, Atlanta, nobody knows what they are in the postseason. No. I mean, they got a bunch of kids. We'll see exactly sometimes that's because the just don't know that they're supposed to feel a euro way to me. They do sort of like, you know, Houston did Houston needed a year before they got they playoffs before, then they need that Atlanta feels like, and then you know, the cubs are okay culture. Okay, fine. They're, they're, I mean, they're the team. I think the team you'd most likely to see. They're not the Red Sox. The Yankees are better than they're probably three teams in the American League that are better than what can we just the Trump about how if you, whatever team in the National League has no chance against the American League in the World Series that is so not seven games I'm telling you, there is no reason why go back and look at the dodgers. I mean, you don't have to be the team with the most wins. In fact, I saw. In the last. Let's see five only five of the last twenty five teams to clinch their division. I has won the World Series. That's the Red Sox vibe and in five in the last thirty years. I mean, they're still celebrating that Seattle team that won the World Series after winning a hundred and eighteen games for them too good for that. They really, really did a great job. All right. So yesterday which spent a lot of time on the Trojans and the disapp- actually not even disappointing disgusting performance disgusting. The word. My mom uses a lot when she doesn't like something. She calls it disgusting. Disgusting. Here I asked the soundboard do something for the Trojans in that game. Listen to what he did. Barris ING, disc fuss, ting buckle. This, this, this busting gusting to frosting. I don't know what that is such a combined. I must have written that by accident and he quite literally reads what's reword. I right? So it's combination of words, but dysfunctional disgusting when put together equals dis- this fussing dismissed busting..

"Time of the year rosters expand the waiver wire deals get made for you this? Week did you have any sense that maybe, you'd be moving to, a new ball club didn't. Tell you especially silly in in August but it was a it was a nice surprise I'm excited to be. Here to help the team and get into the playoffs in? World Series in that process what what's the. Biggest challenge of the biggest adjustment for you just, getting up, to speed with the pictures I think citing in my position is just learning you know Everybody's you know tendencies what they like what they don't like you know how they get guys. Out what gets them back on track so for me it's? Just learning the pitchers and you know making. Sure that I get the most out of them, out there You have spent some time in the National League West you. Were with the, dodgers for a while does, that give you a, little bit of an advantage even with all the. Player turnover. That, happens in the game I think, so I think there's. Some guys that still been around when I was in the National League. But you know, with with all this guy imports and video, nowadays I think kinda makes the transition pretty pretty seamless for me Uruguay guy with a reputation as a? Tremendous defender behind. The plate a guy who calls a good game all the all the the little things. That sometimes the, fans don't appreciate what enabled, you what was the, process for you to to find your niche if you will I think I got to be around a lot of great players I think that. Helped me obviously the the my family, background with my, dad helps tremendously but I got some great you know Joe Mauer Salvador. President learned a lot from Carbonneau when I got to catch him in Minnesota Know he, would always, call his own game and go over game. Playing with me and you know he really taught me a lot. About you know how to go about hitters, and take pictures even game and what that. What that entails so you. Know I, think it's a testament to my family the coaches but also something great players I played with Just kind of a, little insider, information without revealing too much if you will In your scenario is game, unfolds in your work in a game scouting report obviously means part of it but how much of it is watching how a guy reacts to pitches whether, he. Takes, similar. Files them or whatever towards what you want to do next perhaps. Yeah absolutely I think there's there has to be a nice blend of. Things some people will say they don't like the the, statistic part of it some people don't. Like the, the Perez part of it but there has to be a blend you know there has to be, a combination of two seeing how hitters reacting, pitches react, at the same, time knowing, the, percentages and knowing the, odds of you know this guy is let's say oh for sixteen.

"The first pitch at a ballgame. I never have the owner. I haven't either, but I've I've been there with someone who has and I have stored in that situation. It's not as easy as it looks. I don't think it looks easy, which is interesting why I think most of the time, the idea like you just you're just going to throw the ball, right, and on TV the mound doesn't look as sort of imposing as it is in real life. And then you're standing there in this moment. You're like, oh, my, I just don't bounce it just on POWs, which makes what we saw this weekend from Sister, Mary Jo Sobia of Marian Catholic high school theology. She's theology teacher, did you see her pitch? So I saw her pitch, but more like the the ball movement, I like so was a lot going on their first thing she does. She ended the ball that you kind of taps it up with her by set offer bicep, recalibrate catches the ball yuck and then throws an absolute strike. But like. Doesn't she wave off the catcher too. She waves off the catcher. I like, do you think that she positioned this as a tryout like, hey, if you like, what you see, I'll stick around beyond the Mary available. I'm available every day, but Sunday. I'm good, right? She's listen baseball teams. I guess they do play every Sunday. It's getaway day often, but. So he denies that I said, good question. Mary Jo sister visine we've covered basketball baseball go. Yup. A lot of Chicago ties here. We could be up to the cubs need like a relief. The have like a goat and like all the other manner of like weird things don't need to get anything else in the mix in Wrigley. Let's just like keep it out of the way because the National League's MS anyway, right now they have the cozy as lead. Did you know that in the nationally relative term? Right. They have the coziness lead. You look at the National League in their eight teams that are separated by five games, right? Eight teams that includes the division leaders. We're talking about like the wild card spots there, and the cubs have the coziness lead in the NL central. They've three and a half now a three and a half game lead. Okay. Over the brewers, then you have the cardinals back there right? Every other division is a half a game, half a game half a game. So like whatever is happening in the AL west. That's fun and exciting, but it's like child's play compared to what's happening in the nationally. She's really want, and baseball baseball. Because we, this is a sport that obviously we were just talking about with Jeff Bauman. Our last segment is a marathon, but you could have situations where the Yankees have. I believe the second best record in baseball. Yes, they have the second best record in baseball and yet barring a collapse of epic proportions because the Red Sox have lost, right. The Red Sox are not going to lose that division now. So think about that. Imagine if so, this would be to sort of take it into my sport for a second. Let's say a team is going to go twelve and four and have no shot of it at this division crack, like that's happened though. Well, there have been teams that have gone twelve and four, but they've been right there in the mix until the final weekend of the season..

"Yes. This season as this is the first big decision. They have to make straight ahead a tough weekend in baseball for the Astros do they hear the as knocking on the door? They are just a little bit behind him just a game behind. We discuss that next with a former Astro who's now calling their games, Spain and Fitz on ESPN radio with the eights and brisk up next Spain and Fitz on ESPN radio, the SPN app and Sirius XM channel eighty. It's Nicole Briscoe and field Yates in tonight. So we're deaf. Not Spain in fits. We could go with Briscoe and gates gates and Briscoe. But other than that, we're not that creative ESPN radio's presented by progressive insurance watched a little baseball over the weekend. The the National League is a mess, but you know what the American League is much better. Did you see what happened this weekend with the Houston? Astros? Sure did, and there's no better person to talk about it. Then our guest right now on the shell Pennzoil performance line who now calls the game for the Houston Astros after previously playing for them Jeff Blom you can find him on Twitter at bloomer twenty-seven, or you can find a statue of him amazing auto, which is to me of all the things you could have in your life. That's got to be right up there near the top, Jeff after a long weekend for the Houston, Astros at imagined and the as pulling even and then within one game of the Astros. What is your sense about the mindset right now of the defending world champions. Oh, it's good to be with you guys. And the mindset of these guys is, you know, it's a marathon type season when you when you pull back and look at the entire season. But I think here understanding that the Oakland Athletics are, you know, in their real remember again after being pulled side by side, I think these guys are realizing that it's a little bit of a sprint from here on out, but I think they also understand that though they do have a little bit of help coming in regards of guys coming off the DL. We just saw career come up the deal. George Springer came off the else, but I think the guy that really motivates this ball club and means a lot to these guys, both internally and on the field is Jose altuve and he should be coming back here. Hopefully in the next couple of days you get a front row seat today sake. I was talking about our only over the weekend and I said to him, what's the likelihood that the Astros defending World Series champs don't even win their division this year. And he was like, now not a chance at all, but he did say that's not to take away from the as you just had a front row seat. This is an as team that hasn't made the postseason in a really. Longtime, what makes this as team different. Oh, we, we saw them early in the year they, they've always played the Astros tough. And I think what appeals to some of the people who watch the Oakland a.'s is that they did a good job. You know, they always do a good job of getting young talent. It's always tough to that fan base to latch onto that team when they're when they know that when those guys get good enough, they usually are jettison for more young talent, but they've got a good core group of guys, semi-in Chapman Olsen. And then they have a couple of veteran guys mixed in there with jed Lowrie having an all star season LaCroix behind home plate working with these guys. But what they did is their offense is absolutely incredible what we saw this weekend and what they did to a couple of very good pitchers and Dallas kaikal and Justin Burland is they put great AP's on them. They warm down, they beat them up, knocked them around and hit the ball out of the ballpark. So that was interesting to watch. But then the back in the bullpen with what they did at the trade deadline, picking up the million and Rodney really short in the game. And I think that's their ideas. They don't have phenomenal starting pitching, but they did a good job of showing up that both in short. During those games because their offense is pretty potent right now..

"I'm not sure, if you all caught this in the midst of everything else. That was happening during the all-star festivities but. The designated hitter could soon be part, of, National. League baseball what now I know this is a great debate and by great I'm not only referring to the variety of opinions the wealth of opinions but. Also the fact that it's a massive debate so, many people get so emotional over this debate and. It's not bad, I like it I like the fact that we're tied to. Our our baseball our sports in some traditional ways there are. People out Out there at one of those who, are resistant to change, to the games that we love feel like a. Lot of times you've got commissioners and league's tinkering with the game for. No reason whatsoever. It doesn't always need to be updated and baseball is a, game that's built on tradition and. Numbers and the history And so here we go The National League could be striking. A piece of that tradition Now they've been talking about. The. Designated hitter in the National League for a long, time okay and the debate about whether or not it's fair who has? The advantage when you're an AOL? Park versus, an NFL park. How does that affect world theories I mean that's nothing new But apparently? We are, closer to that I guess now You've got major league baseball officials as well as. Front office executives Who are speaking about this possibility publicly I don't know. If you, guys follow Wainwright on Twitter I do and he had a series of tweets during the all star game on Tuesday And this was one of them Things to.
