Trump To Select Amy Coney Barrett as Supreme Court Nominee
"This edition from NPR News. I'm Scott's time and we are expecting President Trump to announce Amy Cockney Barrett as his nominated. He was Supreme Court this afternoon. Judge Barrett sits on the seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. Ah, in in Chicago, although she's in Indiana and served his clerk to just Saturnian, Scalia. She, of course, would fill the vacancy left by Ruth Bader Ginsburg, whose life and career were honored at the court in the capital this week, and you will be buried next week at Arlington National Cemetery. Let's now welcome Michael McConnell of Stanford University law professor and former federal appeals court judge. Thanks very much for being with us, sir. It's a pleasure. I gather, you know, Amy Cockney Barrett. What's your estimation on her apparent nomination? What kind of justice you might be? Well, I do. Ah. She was a professor at Notre Dame Law School for about 15 years and then Now that capacity I knew her fairly well, she is. We're not personal friends, but I'm in admirers of both her academic work and her performance on the On the seventh circuit. Uh, she's I think a completely unsurprising nominee. Even her opponents recognized that she's extremely qualified, highly and intelligent, hardworking. What are personal Friends knows what in it. Fantastically warm, kind, considerate human being she is and she's I think she'll be an inspiration, especially toe working mothers like like my two daughters, because, and it's just seven Children, including Two adopted Children from Haiti. One right in the wake of the terrible earthquake and on almost everybody who knows of Amy has a story about just how and how she She is so kind and does just considerate things in ways that no one whatever I know about not publicly, but just on a cz, a wonderful warm human being. Let me ask you about some of the public stuff, though, because you're a former U. S appeals court judge and, um I wonder if you've taken note of any particular rulings that she's had the chance to make in her time on the bench. And not quite three years as an appellate judge. He's written 100 opinions, which Dad and itself is pretty impressive. That's Andi. They are. You know, I've not read all of them, but I've read quite a few of them and they're consistently Love of a kind of restrained, very lawyerly of fashion sheep. She clerked for Justice Scalia, who was a brilliant writer, she doesn't write like Scalia. I'm You know, for better or worse. Her opinions are not very rhetorical. There. Ah, rigorous. They are much more low key. Er than that on DH. You know her, and they're just they're consistently conservative, but mainstream conservative. I don't think There's not an extremist bone in her body does does she have opinions? That might surprise some of her supporters every now and then? Ah, every now and then. Ah! Of course, no one really knows where any judge is going to come out on every and maybe we should remind ourselves calling someone a conservative jurist doesn't mean they will always vote a certain way, right? That's right. And the modern legal conservative movement is little different from conservative politics because the conservative legal movement is really mostly about having a more restrained Roll for judges that they ought to read the Constitution modestly with humility, not reading their own preferences into it, And that generally means leaving legislatures and the Congress to make most Democratic choices rather than having the court be like a super Legislature. Stanford law Professor Michael McConnell. Thanks so much for being with us, sir. Thank you.

Florida: The swingiest swing state in the U.S. election
"I want to talk a bit about how we got here and why at least since the the famous near Tie of two thousand does just seem to be Florida or at least partially about Florida. Michael ask, you first win and why did floor to become the key battleground? Republican hasn't won the White House without Florida forever. So that's part of the reason that it's become. So you know everybody desperately wants it and it just seems to be the self-balancing State where it's about twenty percent immigrants. But you know the last the last fifty, million votes that have been cast for presidential candidates in. Florida. Republicans. Democrats, are separated by about twenty thousand and we've had just about every election. Every statewide election seems to come down to one percent and just seems like every time another white person. Republican moves down here from the Midwest another democratic leaning Immigrants May move into central Florida from the Global South and so it's a really seems to be self-balancing. Beyond those demographics that Monolithic is it a case of elderly white pensioners voting for Republicans, and more recent arrivals from elsewhere trading Democrat or is there some kind of overlap between spillage among those groups? As you can probably imagine it's a little bit more complex in that I think that there's didn't kind of increasing awareness for both Democrats and Republicans that some of the key demographics here you know the American immigrants but you know you have the first generation, the second generation you have the newer arrivals you have the. You have the Cubans you have the Puerto Ricans have the Haitians. There's such a mix of people and cultures and experiences, and when you add to that kind of the New Yorkers that are coming to Florida to retire, and you have all these different politics and ideologies of mixed together I think you really get. Such a representation of both the Conservatives and the liberals in both the US. But also in Latin America and I think that when you look at South Florida, you see a lot of those kind of play. You see you know from Columbia, you see the Conservatives from Columbia and you see the progressives from Columbia. So you have such a makes of. Of just these ideologies that really comes to shine like Michael said in the way that people vote. Michael is the a geographic split within Florida as well because it's the general tendency in the United States and elsewhere that cities tend to be more liberal more vaguely left-wing rural parts of a given state or given country tend to be more conservative. Is that clear cut in that respect in Florida? Well, again I think. Could certainly right that it's always a little more complicated but that's generally true I think you know you saw in two thousand sixteen that Hillary Clinton did even better than expected in a lot of the urban areas She Barack Obama won Florida and Hillary Clinton. Did even better in some of the particularly in south Florida in Miami and Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach and some of the more urbanized area. But Donald Trump there was an absolute revolution of essentially white people in the exurbs coming out and voting for trump in the rural and sort of farther away from the cities you don't want to over stereotype. But it certainly true that the Republican coalition has you know the heart of it is older white people who are very reliable voters and the Democratic Coalition relies on younger urban lots of immigrants, lots of minorities who in the past have not been turned out has not been as High Bianca. Those factors taken into consideration that I guess the Republican Party's and democratic parties in Florida will have an amount obviously in common with the National Party and parties elsewhere is there still a distinctive political culture within Florida like basically what I'm asking are Florida Republicans different from other Republicans, into Florida Democrats different from other States Democrats. I think when it gets down to it when you're thinking of. Our Florida Latinos for example, are they always kind of leaning Democrat or you know Florida South Florida Latinos are they always leaning Republican as people kind of think a lot of the time because of the cuban-american population I think that a lot of that is is changing. So at whether whether or not, you're going to see more cuban-americans still voting. Republican. In the way that they usually do a lot of that is kind of breaking and and being undone because of the younger generation, you know really having more of an experience in the. US and seeing the way that their families grew up in thinking about healthcare and climate change as more of priorities to them. So you know I would say that the main difference if there was one is here you can see a lot of distinctive kind of you see mixed political ideologies in families. So I've met even candidates who are you know Democrats were running now for public office in Florida and their families are different completely different ideology from them. So I think that that's what's interesting right and what makes Florida you know such. Unique and fascinating state is that it's changing all the time and it's changing not just because of the of the new kind of waves of immigrants that are coming in but also the new generations that are really having a different kind of awareness than the one their parents did. We'll talk more in the second half of the program about how Florida may have changed in the last four years and what it might be like in this election. But Michael just before we do that I don't like to tempt fate too much by talking about what happened in two thousand when basically an entire parallel history of the twentieth century got chalked off by a margin of a few hundred votes in Florida but. Still. Talk about that election much in Florida and Walton immense sliding doors moment that was not just for the United States. But as it turned out for the entire world, you know I think that's a great way. Great way of putting it because it certainly was I mean you know you wouldn't have an Iraq war if it wasn't for five hundred, thirty, seven votes the other way. And I think it's just a great example of. Of. You know the way these these elections and Florida are always one on the margins. Sort of every community matters again at the margins these things make a huge difference. I think. You know Republicans have been much better organized since two thousand and you saw in two thousand with that Brooks brothers riot But but everyone knows it's going to be close and and that really is a place where every vote counts.

Can Simple Fruit Peels Revive Dead Land?
"Of IHEART. Pay Brain Stuff Lauren Boban here with another classic episode from Erstwhile Host Christian Sager. This one has to do with some awesome environmental research almost never came to light. I'll let Christian explain. Stuff, it's Christian Sagar. If some of Earth's most barren wastelands could be transformed into dense productive forests by the most unlikely of helpers discarded fruit peels. It sounds like wishful thinking but that's exactly what happened in the nineteen nineties during promising ecological experiment orange juice manufacturer del Oro plunked twelve thousand metric tonnes. It's around thirteen thousand, two, hundred, twenty, eight tonnes of orange peels on top of bleak Costa Rican Pastureland eventually transforming it into a lush fertile forest but it's a success story that almost wasn't told del Oro donated a seven Acre or three. Hector plot on the edge of the WANNA cast t conservation area after being approached by University of Pennsylvania researchers, Daniel Johnson and Winnie. Hell walks who wondered how the company's discarded appeals could benefit the soil in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Ninety, eight, the company deposited one thousand truckloads of orange skins onto the degraded land as part of the agreement but rival Orange Squeezer tico fruit sued del Oro a year into the contract claiming the company was defiling National Park Costa Rica's Supreme Court agreed, and after only two years, the experiment came to a halt. That could have been the end of the story. Were it not for Timothy Truer a curious ecologist at Princeton University in two thousand, thirteen truer and a team of researchers traveled to Costa Rica for unrelated research and decided to look up the orange peel plot. The site sign was so covered with vines in the land. So densely filled with trees that took the team years and dozens of site visits to discover it the team sampled and studied the soil at the site and compared it to samples that were taken in the year two thousand. It also noted tree diameter and species from the Orange Peel site and that of. In Year by pasture that wasn't treated with peels, the researchers found that the treated area had richer soil more tree biomass and a broader variety of tree species including a fig tree with a circumference equivalent to three arm spans. The precise reasons for this one, hundred and seventy six percent increase in above ground biomass are still being investigated but the researchers contend dumping massive amounts of nutrient. Rich organic waste had a nearly immediate effect on the land's fertility changing its lifeless soil into a thick rich loamy mixture. The researchers proposed it's also probable that the orange peel suppressed growth of an invasive grass that was keeping the forest from flourishing. The rediscovery of the experiment, a boon for barren landscapes and agricultural waste, but it also could have a major impact on earth. If more companies institute similar, environmentally friendly solutions to waste the resulting richly vegetated land could help isolate harmful carbon dioxide in the air and improve Earth's polluted atmosphere.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg lies in state at U.S. Capitol
"At the Supreme Court on Friday, late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg became the first woman And first Jewish person ever to lie in state at the U. S. Capitol. Anita, why hasn't a woman ever help this honor before? That's a great question? You know, they've been doing this tradition since 18 52. And it hasn't been as many people as you might think. It's been about 35. So a lot of presidents, you know other other people, but mostly are obviously this is always for someone who serves in the government. Four civilians have also been honored, but it's not called lying in state. So Congress decides who does this, and, you know, obviously many elected officials in this country until more recently were men. Well, Devlin before the capital Justice Ginsburg lay in repose of the Supreme Court. Can you describe this remembrance was like and who came to pay their respects? Well, pretty much the entire city came to respect it. And it was. It was an interesting Mix because it began as sort of a spontaneous, Ah, demonstration of support remembrance that the very night of her death outside the Supreme Court. And then obviously it morphed into the official pageantry of remembrance. And, you know, I think I think the video that is probably going to be most lasting from that is People chanting against the president when he showed up, you know, I think it says something about the state of our politics right now, that even in you know, a memorial setting That the political anger is so great that people are going to essentially boo the president public. On DH That just tells you what the stakes are of that. You know, her death is obviously sad, and obviously a moment in history. But it's also another. You know another front in this political battle that were that were following Fernando what he tells about Justice Ginsburg's funeral plans and and where shall ultimately be laid to rest? Um, she will be laid to rest on Arlington National Cemetery next to her husband, Marty Ginsburg than in section that is reserved for Former members of the Supreme Court. And today, the Friday will be the on Ly Day that she will be lying in state in the U. S Capitol and the need a set of historic moment is the first woman first person was Jewish Delight in state. Let's remember that Rosa Parks laid in honor at the Capitol Rotunda, but that was 2005. And that is the distinction between laying and honor. And Ling and stay on.

It's one of the world's largest temperate rainforest absorbing carbon dioxide emitted by the United States. Which is why the plan to roll back protections is worrying environmentalists and climate scientists. Coral Davenport has been following the story for the New York Times and she joins me now, coral welcome back to the news hour. Let's just start with what exactly it is that the Trump administration is proposing changing what would the rollbacks entail? So the Trump Administration proposed has been working on this rule change for a couple of years. What's about to happen is that in the next 30 days, it's going to become final. What they're doing is lifting a Clinton era protection. It's called the roadless rule. It was a national national law that banned logging and road construction in most of the nation's forests. The Trump Administration is lifting the roadless rule in seven million acres of the 16 million acre Tongass National Forest.

C.I.A. Operatives in the Early Years of the Cold War
"Scott Anderson joins us now from the catskills. He is a contributing writer for the New York, Times magazine, and the author of many books. His latest is called the quiet Americans four CIA spies. Of the Cold War tragedy in three acts, Scott Welcome back to the podcast. Thanks much nice to be here. So you are allowed on the podcast to talk about your previous book Lawrence in Arabia which came out in twenty thirteen hand, which of course feels like now centuries ago which makes it clear to our listeners are longtime listeners that this is not your first. Book. Involving spies I'm curious what what's the draw for you but I think Speiser inherently fascinating in not just to an awful lot of people and of thought about what is I think it's the the allure of having a secret life. I think that I think that for an awful lot of people this idea that you have a whole separate identity is really fascinating New People. What I was drawn to in both the Lawrence and with in the quite America's the foresee a officers I follow is that in both cases, this was at a time when individuals out in the field had a tremendous freedom of action. So it wasn't. People sitting behind desks following policy that they're actually out in the field doing crazy stuff. You also have a personal connection to the story right in terms of what your father did for living you talk a little bit about that. Sure. My father was agricultural adviser for the Agency for International Development, which was a branch of the State Department. I grew up in. East. Asia in in Korea and Taiwan as Indonesia. and. So this was the nineteen fifties, nineteen sixties when I came along American government workers abroad often in those sorts of countries often were two hats whatever their official job was my father's job as agriculture adviser but it was also part of this great anti Communist crusade was happening around the world. So the upfront hearts and minds, soft power aspect of my father's work was working on agrarian reform in line with countries like these countries were were the land was was had been controlled infra centuries by all darkies. But the the more hard power in the darker side of what my father was doing was was setting up rural vigilante squads, home guard militias to watch over the local populace and to make sure that they weren't being swayed by the communist in certainly in countries like Taiwan or South Korea. If you were exposed or accused of being a leftist, your life was not going to go. Well, you know I'm now getting a sense of why one of the four characters in your previous book was an agronomist perhaps. That's right. Yeah it's well It's it's an interesting thing because. It just for national development was often used by the CIA as a cover because. Are Out, in the field, they're not, they're not saying, I'm destined to capitol there often out among the local population and probably have a better sense of what's happening. Outside what you one thing I'll say I've noticed over time in different countries. I've been almost invariably the ex Patriot community that knows best what's happening in the country are tend to be the people are out in the field in often the Middle East is the oil guys. They have a sense much more than than people sitting around in the capital. Let's start with frank wizner. The first person you mentioned, and this is not the the first book to be written at least in part about wisner who was he and what made him. So central to the story wizards amazing Turkey was a corporate lawyer who was working at a Wall Street firm when even before World War Two broke out and he quit his law firm to join the navy, he ended up being an operative for the office to teacher services, which is the the wartime intelligence agency of the of the army that they owe asset kind of the precursor to the CIA. That's right. That's right and he ends up being A. Kind of the first American to to to witness. The Soviet takeover of country in Eastern Europe, and this was in Romanian to summer of nineteen forty. Four So full year before the war ended and a wizard was on the ground as a as an oasis operative and just watch the strong arm tactics did really a matter of weeks led the Soviets to take control the country he and he was sending cables back to Washington telling telling them what are so good allies doing he sees the say he has the same experience in eastern Germany at the end of. The war in watching the way the Soviets for taking over, he goes back to his law from for couple of years for the complete unhappy, and then when the CIA starts up in nineteen forty seven, they have this idea that they wanna start a covert operations branch of of the CIA called the Office of Policy Coordination and frank listeners chosen to head that the name was deliberately chosen to be really boring. That's right and in fact, the name itself, the Office of policy coordination was was so top secret that even you can't even say the name out loud for twenty five years. So in that role wizner e created, what what he called the mighty world, which was this vast covert operations umbrella of a operating throughout the world and everything from hard power aspects of it like dropping dropping partisans behind the iron curtain to everything to cultural stuff voice. Of America. Radio Free Europe that was all came out of the Office of Policy Coordination.

"I up here are guy. Kevin Mallory music at Kevin Mallory. Tx He passes along a question from at Baseball Brit saying he wants to hear busters most controversial baseball opinion. I'm not in the same place. Where a lot of traditional SR WHEN? It comes to extra innings. I've evolved over time. I used to always have fights boot Chambi about how you know. I love the eighteen inning games and now as time has gone on. I'm like now they have to stop that And I think what convinced me was Game Three of the two thousand eighteen world series which was eighteen innings between the red sox and the dodgers and it was colossally boring and I was trying to put myself in the in the place of fans who were watching games like that and I think that anytime you go beyond like ten eleven twelve innings. Fans begin to drift out of the ballpark. You know people are turning it off and you know players can't stand it so as time has gone on. I do agree with the efforts to truncated extra innings to we want to see the first baseman who maybe through a couple of pitchers back in Highschool. Get on down. What are you in favor of the put? A runner on second move that they do in the World Baseball Classic something. They need to do something and I do think that there should be a Max and I don't know if that's twelve and by the way this is for regular season only in the post season that's different but in the regular season. I do think you need to have a Max kind of like you do you know in the NFL where you're going to play an overtime period. But you're not gonna just play indefinitely Same thing with hockey. Obviously David Justin rose as well. What about how do you feel about ties? I feel like that would up end records and all that but I think you gotta you gotTa do like hockey. GotTa find a way to get a winner and a loser from that day even if you were. They signed various points next up Brian Simpson at twelve. To seventy four. He writes in from top to bottom. Which Marlins team do you think was better one thousand ninety seven or two thousand and three. I ninety seven look two thousand. Three a lot of those guys went on to have amazing careers. Josh Beckett for example Being you know someone who had a long career but that ninety seventeen had stars like it had a lot of great establish players and it was obviously a terrible thing after this season was over. They basically unloaded the entire team. As the owner was trying to save money. Paris Parker at Paris. Matthew writes not a question more so a hey. Let's point this out here. Referring bleacher tweets from Wednesday. I can't believe you forgot about Ryan Zimmerman as Mr National. I'm a diehard Cardinal Fan and remember that and I think he does have a point. I don't think it was much you forgot but just something that we hadn't covered yet. I don't feel as bad about that. One they do about Mr Cub right. I mean Mr Khan Ernie Bank that that was a bad one I you know right Zimmerman I think Ryan Zimmerman going around signing Mr National. I didn't know Ryan through the years Now I don't see that doesn't seem like his style last one for today Steve Banton at ESPN's sixteen writes in. How would you feel about interviewing one of your favorite or well known umpires to get their take on the Kerlin downtime including how they're being compensated some intriguing stories from the past Steve? We might have some things in the hopper here. You could be in luck on this. I would agree with that. I would stave. Don't be surprised at some point if we wind up doing that. We're not GONNA do it next week but next week. Man We have a lineup. Ready to go hall of Fame Week. We're we're touting it as we're going to have hall of famers in this list is not totally confirm but for now we know we're going to get Jim Palmer. We're GONNA get Mike Mussina. We're going to get George Brett and others. It is going to be phenomenal week. I can't wait. That'll for bleacher tweets for this week and quick. Another shoutout to our guy. Steve Bannon who wrote in saying that he works in the yard and he's been working twelve hour shifts and he really appreciates the podcast so we appreciate his hard work in the heart of all. The medical workers first responders people at Grocery stores. All you folks who are grinding through this and listen to pod. We we appreciate what you're doing for us. Yeah and Steve. It's funny you would be the perfect person for something like this. Is My suggestion. Baseball executives is whenever baseball returns? That folks who worked in the front lines at hospitals they should have free. Admission like let them this. Sporting events go ahead beyond. I remember after nine eleven. How so many policemen and port authority officers and first responders firemen were honored ballparks? I feel like we need people from hospitals out at ballparks Being honored is is game.

"Todd rate him dot com todd. we just had that interview with Dave Martinez. It was so much fun and I've never heard of anyone wanting a piece of a foul pole but it makes sense it. We want it but it certainly raises a lot of questions. I love it I mean it begs some questions. No no doubt about it but I mean I think it's totally warranted number one. It's a signature thing but I can't help but think what do you do? Do you like slice it up like a big Salami and just distribute the rings. I could picture that in Dave Martinez. Is Dan just kind of sitting there right? I mean I would totally do take it down and put a new one up no question. Yeah and based on what? We learned about his carpentry skills. I could see it being like a part of a Corner of a closet or something like that. Hey what's that? That's an unusual color for for that class. Oh that's just part of the foul pole that how Kendrick hit back in the two thousand nineteen word steer listener. You're thinking here. It's the base of a coffee table. You put a glass of it and you got a coffee table. And that's the best and you can even fill it with stuff. I mean 'cause right. You got a void in there yet. You know another thing you could do if you really wanted to be really gaudy about it. and Dave mentioned to us before we started that he has hundreds of acres. You can have like the flagpole out in front of your house. Actually be the foul. Paul what do you think you could totally do that? I mean it might take some Some footing and and some construction here a foul balls are pretty heavy object. I can tell you that but yeah I say you know as long as we have this this void in our normal lives and some time to do things. Let's think creatively do it absolutely before we get some ballpark talk. I WanNa ask you about The story that junely our colleague here at ESPN had this morning about a video game league. That's going to start up involving players from each of the thirty teams. It makes sense that they would do something like this. Todd totally I mean I think that Yeah I mean just the first things first. We need content. We need something to To occupy our time as as we wait this out. And if you think about it. Buster it really does dovetail with initiative that will be has been concerned with for years and that is to appeal to a younger audience so from a marketing perspective. It is a no brainer. allows the players to Have their personalities come through a little bit? I think it's a win win totally. Yeah and I think that Betters will focus on the youngest player. That's who I would pick. I don't even know who was. I went through the names loosely in there but I would always bet on the younger participant. What do you think you never know you? Might you know widely veterans on the road to you know that an guile and old age sometimes Wins the day you and I can speak to that personally. We'll see you on the quiz year. Would Taylor see if that holds true? But yeah you know. Yeah well I can. I can speak from experience when I play my fifteen year. Old Son Jake. In video games I have no chance. And he's doing things with a control. I I just give up and go out and mow the lawn or do something like that. all right. Let's talk before we get into quiz. Let's talk about The ballpark you presenting this week. Which is down in Atlanta. We are finishing up the alias. This week buster. We're talking about truest park. Truest Park formerly Suntrust Park home of the Atlanta Braves and As was the case with the Marlins Park last week. We won't talk about the tortured bonding of this place. Why it exists where it does just from a fan anesthetic Experience I think this is one of these things. It's very similar to me going to Las Vegas. I think it's it's testament to the the ingenuity of man. It's amazing they created something from absolutely nothing. It's like a little city there. It is a real estate project. That happens to have a ballpark I actually do like it I think that it's really interesting. The fact that there is a little city around I actually know people who worked for the braves. Who Live steps away from the ballpark very strange. And just lastly I would say from Fan Experience. It IS A. It's actually a great place to see a game. There are no bad seats The cantilever is the rake. Stare Basically give you a very very good viewing experience. I love the hank. Aaron homerun display I've been there a few times. I was actually there for a conference of sports designed people last spring so I spend three days on site in and around Battery Complex Antique. Oh Pizza We were talking about pizza before we started recording here You know I think it's pretty good experience. Let's thoughts yeah one hundred percent. I've only been. There're a couple of times now but I absolutely loved the feel for it and I you know. I love going to the ballpark. Where even if you if you drop someone into the place That you would have a strong sense of what team that it's attached to like that is that is the home of the braves then. There's so much about that franchise in that Ballpark And I think the food there is great. I spent last last year and was walking around trying to protect the braves fan and so I walked around the entire ballpark perimeter looking for particular sweatshirt that he's trying to get at the braves and I got to see all the different places men. There is a wide variety of food. Places choose from. Yeah and we've talked over the last couple of weeks about ballparks that have a difficult time breaking through without some sense of place. We talked about city field and citizens bank park which are in the middle of parking lots well. This doesn't have that problem now. Only defined sense of place and it's kind of interesting because they brought that chop house out in Right and right center field Essentially over from Turner field. So you've got continuity from the last ball park to this one and Like I said I really. You know aside from the fact that it's kind of difficult to get to I'm a pedestrian kind of guy. I'm a New Yorker. I have walked from a hotel across that bridge across the highway to the ballpark. Not a fun thing in the middle of summer in Atlanta. But I get it really high marks. I think it's a good place to see again. Yeah lobbing the next time we have a Sunday night baseball game there that we all stay at the Omni with our production crew which is basically right there. You can roll out near like right in there so again as we've been doing. I think we need to just have a quick rundown of Turner Field Atlanta County Fulton County Stadium Turner field what a fleeting existence I will say that. I went to every world series game in the history of that ballpark whilst two games in nineteen ninety nine and I went to the two thousand all star Game Amazing Buster when they built this place which it was constructed to be The Olympic Stadium for the ninety six Olympics. Eighty five thousand seats. They down downsized. Nick re purposed it. we pictured a lot more world series and a lot more signature moments. Happening there. Yeah that was a grand statement. You totally threw me off there. It was like taking a curveball. Right over the middle. When you're like you saw every world series game there and I was like. Oh yeah that's right. They weren't that many I remember I in Fulton County Stadium. The coldest that I've ever been anywhere was at the nineteen. I'm trying to remember what what world series it was was it might have been the ninety five world series sitting up in the upper bowl in the auxiliary press box and the wind was whipping through their man. That was gold. But that ballpark. You talk about a place built for pitching you know so many of the new ballparks it came in in the ninety s e Camden yards. Three sixty four out to left center field was the distance according to some of the. Oriel pitchers and they actually thought it was closer to three fifty but turner field when that open it was like. Wow that is a canyon and what a great place if you have. John smoltz in Greg Maddux and Tom Glavin new staff no question about it and and I was at jumping around Atlanta Fulton. County Stadium when the braves won their lone world series during the great run in. Nineteen ninety-five An electric atmosphere and I remember going to the post game reception and having the most nineteen ninety-five moment imaginable at the celebration. Where nineteen ninety-five Heroes Darius Rucker Hootie and the blowfish Newt Gingrich Ted Turner and Jane Fonda so that is one thousand nine hundred five right there. I thought you were going to mention Halle Berry. Who was like I think at that point either David Justice or maybe they were married did but she would. She would have been in there too all right. Let's get to this week's quiz guys here. We go one of the reasons that this team's nickname was officially. Selected was due to the fact that quote it has a brevity that will delight headline writers is the Steam. The twins the raise the angels or the mets selected. Because the name had a brevity that will delight headline writers twins. Raise angels mets. Wow Wow oh boy Tell you WANNA take a shot. You got last week one right. I think I'm GonNa nail this one. I'm going mets. That sounds like a very old timey newspaper thing to think about. Especially because they are formerly the metropolitan so That's that sounds like some forward thinking back in whenever the mets were created. I'm going I'm going to go and it's funny you. You're basing it on where guessing journalism was at that time and and where it clubs were thinking. I'm GONNA say race that in some respect besides the word devil being double raise. I'm GONNA say that that part of the reason why short and it was not only get worse. Get rid of the word devil but also to make it. More Headline Friendly Taylor wins the day because it was absolutely the metropolitans mustard nineteen ninety eight. When did the raise became the raise in before the two thousand eight season? What are you thinking here? I was trying to you know I was going to let him stand on his own one. That was my initial one. But I'm like you know what I'm GONNA be different. I'm going to take a different shot. And the rays were totally at that point. Trying to re brand. And maybe I wondered if you caught some obscure passage Mark Tompkins stories rates executives. Okay cut me a break here. Twins eighteen sixty one. I mean you know. We'll all right. Congratulations Taylor good job. Exactly no I wasn't gonNA go the twins because that felt like that wasn't related to headlines. That was totally related to the twin cities. That was an easy one right now.

Davey is that you are also a carpenter which I didn't know about how the heck did that happen? You know what I you know. I try to be hands on much. They can If actually killing time right now you know had all. This new home built in I just working on cut in closets Putting up new blinds or whatever whatever I can do myself not by any means. Can I go out and build somebody new house You know I can. I can put them nails in the wall. So when did you learn how to do that before we get to your championship? Run a last year because I tell you what I grew up on a farm and I saw a lot of carpentry going on but I was gopher like the idea of having skills to do that. You have to learn that. When did you do that? I learned that in high school. My my dad miracle How construction so They taught me how to I started out at fourteen. Doing some doing roofing and back in those days. You remember laying roofing all tarn Paper for that nature minute then I graduated framing and Started doing some framing work so I just learned a little bit each and every time now I kind of enjoy and I like I said no better way to time and just trying to get stuff done. Yeah we got a lot of time. Now what other? What other parts to that How's she going to be working on here in the days ahead? I got I got a whole lot of yard to take care of Among three hundred and fifty acres so I gotTa Take Care of a lot of yard work in farming and and stuff of that nature but Like I said I'm I'm just trying right now just trying to pass time. I missed the game is being around the boys and the clubhouse but accused remind going. Well if you need someone to help you with either move into manure pile or as you said tar paper like that's low enough where I can help you out with that all right. Let's let's talk about last year and get some stories from you from last year First off have you been involved? We you know one of the one of the things that we missed out in the first part of this season is your guys ring ceremony. Were you involved in any way this Spring and picking the championship rings? And what have you heard about them? No I heard their incredible I didn't want to be involved. I WANT I. I want to accept my rain like everybody else and Be SURPRISING GET IT I. Obviously they asked me questions about it but My understanding is they did a tremendous job. So I'm looking forward to getting it. 'cause we will get it while who would have imagined. Last May twenty third that you guys would have championship rings because on that day your nineteen thirty one and you and I remember talking to you during the world series about all the speculation about your job. I know you well enough to know when you said you weren't worried about that That that's exactly right but how often were get Nass by family members and friends about that because that's speculation was out there. Yeah you know it was definitely out there You know my family never really very positive thing they just. I talked to my dad. He just say they just you job. You know. Go out motivate player and I try focused on just trying to win every inning. You know That's where I learned that from Hill Friends and stuff. They you know they kept telling me hang in. You know I know you know you know it was tough it. It looked ugly But I had a job to do. That's the only way I thought about going to the ballpark and focusing on on the dead hand and try to win the game on hand. What in your mind was the most important thing. With the turnaround that came after may twenty third. I personally believe one was. We started getting healthy You know I said this from the beginning when we were struggling. I said look pitching. Starting pitching holds up This this could be interesting. You know so about the rest of the guys. GotTa get healthy. We got we got to get a lineup straightened out And then and then you know. I relied a lot on the veteran players that really keeping the clubhouse intact and keeping a positive You know with myself to. Coaching staff in the veteran guys We kept everything intact..

"The old upgrade to the San Jose Mercury News and cover the warriors and then USA Today said now we're going to let you cover away. Could I not argue there is a silver lining to all these Ashley the first Season Chase Center they want people to still have a reason to come to the building but even before offs that would be more about developing the guys trying to ensure they get that draft pick a lot more losses but it provides immediate clarity on which direction the team is going to go they're bad but they have a direction jeter just bad the dolphins are bad but we're going to get some degree curry favour was stars or they shut you off you need access to the top players crossed lines you don't and I think draymond got personal with Katie crossed Align Katie right into the locker room then it Kinda died were you surprised that Katy would say yeah Draymond I think the point he was making it was one of many reasons and I think even think to the warriors credit to draw critics Kevin durant credit they may not have been here with fascination with Kevin Durant spending free agency and his personality and the dynamics parties involve that it never was serious enough that affected the ultimate results but when it comes why I'm gonNA head out the door I think there's a lot of good teams in the NBA Utah in Boston But they who if Donovan Struggling in Utah Who's the second Guy Joe Ingles Lebron a beat you got injury issues it's an older roster they're going late nights but boy if you're asking me Anthony Davis I want seventy four games people feel about this older team won young payroll legs Kuzma was that auto automatically makes him championship contender but at the same time then last year because they have more experience they have better three point shooting better shooting team but Georgia's absence your point about when I was seeing him dry you know be finished with forty called and through his seven seasons he's missed an average of fourteen games now wpro sometimes the injuries are serious sometimes they're not but if he's going to Miss Jared Dudley can't defend quin cooks not a defender I do think they need a marginal not an Lakers in the warriors then he like every time he comes on the show next next job by the way you're going to be running tucker I'm not I'm not doubting that but this is all about working together so when you went down and watched him and GonNa work well I think it's GonNa work enough for them to be a playoff team it's going to work enough for driving force is the dynamic between James Harden and Russell Westbrook and the thing that left me Claire James Harmless coming off the bench but at least they have the friendship that allows them change the complexion of that team where James Harden he's known a dribble go ice and I think that will leave teams you know feeling like they don't know what ground cover things are good now it's late October it's not April May and June and I think at some point now the entire western conference I have not seen Dallas play yet I've seen bits and pieces of Denver I think Denver and three through twelve the best roster and a top five coach I said I have a I I I've watched the clippers play three times in my take away as is it's called Paul George eventually I think there are tough out I think they're I think they're substantially for this town. The Lakers have too much equity but the clippers are very confident look they can at least be they had give up a lot to get Paul George Trading Alexander Danilo Gallinari slasher and tested the warriors in six games and I think when you're looking at the identity of this team goes hand in hand that explains why the clippers have been able to absorb Paul George's stories and trades this is just one of another many examples of a new set of circumstances hour on the show Peter King is GonNa stop on by the trade deadline is done on more heard the heard streams twenty four hours a day seven days a week within the iheartradio ars studio this is the heard wherever you may be however talk to put some over here just love this this jazz unbelievable Taylor job you guys did a great job as we came in Monday and it was like this Monday oh yeah we'll give out like the full size cupcakes and allowed kids and stuff most remind yeah John Thanks for telling reminded me that I know I've made stop it one of the things I strongly believe is if when you go to Strasbourg was great anthony don't was great all our guys were great I lost since May Jose altuve couldn't hit with runners on base Alex Bregman on this for about three years this idea that you should these ten year and the nationals or a very well run organization and they said we're not we liked bryce Harper we're not paying visa that nine biggest contracts and baseball the organizations are the angels the Phillies I'm trying to solve all their problems by signing one guy to Mike are farm system we got guys that we drafted our first two or three years in existence pitch count stuff they didn't listen to the noise and you got to re sign bryce Harper the teams aren't suckers most of these organ now I would pay Garrett Cole five years a lot of money but position players nine ten year contracts twelve year contracts none of them but position players tenure deals none of them work all right coming up in ten minutes Peter King stops love him this week be sure to catch live editions of the heard weekdays at noon eastern nine am Pacific continue their undefeated season as they face Tyler Murray and the cardinals it all starts at seven thirty from players that is great their day are right now in my opinion Green League I can't i Miss Baltimore when they didn't play last week I totally I think they're fast very upset with the New York jets because the the ownership and management told atoms a guy I love who's been a great guest on our show had this to say what was going on you know it definitely hurt me you know what I mean ahome myself well first of all here's a great player and he is in that class of elite player there's a leak out why there were four different jets players whose names were out appeared in a star driven NBA you didn't hear people and they traded Blake Griffin. I got my name all over these networks I get it and I think hope they're great so when they are great don't trade down comes to my professional sports teams or my Whitehouse's leaks tell me the Lakers with magic a million leaks the jets just seem like a complete sure and people from the new administration of GM Joe Douglas Colin the They were said to have been talking to two teams in seventeen the New York jets had nine first round draft there one is gone that's how you build a horsecrap organization so to have the general manager turnover they've had the head coaching turnover that they've had gets well yes and some some years the dolphins of learning on the job making it up situation as he goes but I do think this and they're going to play six thousand nine weeks a backup quarterback the other three Josh with my nine and seven prediction baker will make much less noise he'll be winning they'll be less you well I wouldn't call it a big win in there's no question when I look at this team I think it's I think it's The biggest problem that they have is that they've been terribly undisciplined yes they've but they're not gonNA win a lot more games if they play the way they have all they have to and they're not gonNa make the playoffs with a win some games and people in Cleveland should not so this is a franchise that was used to playing fifteen games a year Sunday week three NBC week five Espn and so it's just assists go in Green Bay or the two best watches currently in the League I think Baltimore's The assing they run a contrary offense to the league I think John Harbaugh's done a masterful Oh flacko a remarkable pivot here what do you think we see Sunday night lochoe that's a big change for any organization to me you're the underrated guy right now in what's happened with the Baltimore rushing yards a game yeah that's what the Ravens are doing two hundred and four rushing yards a game is look as long as the quarterback stays healthy they can win any one you're running the ball as well as they have you control the clock and you aide in Baltimore since two thousand thirteen this is a big game so this is going to be a really cool game to watch I would expect the Patriots well John Lynch takes over the niners at the same time and John Lynch drafted l. beat then he worked at Fox with me and he goes to San Francisco and you surprised John Lynch goes player quickly broadcaster quickly took over and that is we are going to build a good passing game but the one if you look at their defensive front they basically got six key free agents trade not a free agent but Colin what is really important about this overworking him you know he's he's he's only playing like forty forty he just random question you got a phone by right now I imagine who's the last real big shot in the NFL I'd say probably Deshaun Watson but the trend says that does Shawn Watson you have to meet him talk to him and the NFL very much yeah you know what happened Colin I was talking to him Sunday NBC a couple of years ago he was handed his mom was handed the keys or habitat he has done a lot of work with habitat for humanity he's giving guy he's a good all right Colin you bet by the way speaking of college football have my college.
"nationals" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"No the nationals this is it then they're going to lose if they don't bring in do littler Hudson has it seemed like they were gonNA lose brought into littler Hudson yeah while they never had a lead in this homestand so there was never really a time where it was like all right let's bring in these guys and shut them down and preserve the sleep they never had one but the you Sanchez decision that was so it was the bottom of the fourth and the nationals had scored their first run of the game so they were losing two one at that point and it was runner on third with one out I believe yen's Sanchez hit for himself and struck out counting so that was that was I agree that one is the one that's the one exception I because because I was so distracted at the time I feel like fraud saying yeah but I mean that does seem pretty obvious on the other hand they didn't really have a plan to get the next five innings just because the personnel that they have and at the time when we discussed this on Friday night I made the point that if that if they had had austin both who is not on the roster than I think it would have been an easy decision to pinch hit for Sanchez note that you have somebody you can trust but this because they didn't use vote for the first two series he was no longer considered I wouldn't consider him trustworthy anymore either because who knows what he's like after three weeks activity in no chances to get used to the bullpen and left him off the postseason roster or the world series roster in place of Joe Ross and at that point I wouldn't have trusted Joe Ross for three innings of relief either and so I I mean it would have they were in a very tough situation I mean being down to the Astros with no bullpen and a in your fourth starter on the mound is just not a game you're GonNa win very often no matter what emergency lever you pull but I would pinch hit for Sanchez there it did it did feel like you needed you needed the offense in that situation and then you then you've got a series of bad options after that yeah and so I don't know whether he was thinking about Sunday's game already I guess you could say well he used a rougher two innings in that game so if he had been thinking of Ross's possible starter for Sunday would he have used them for two innings that game on the other hand you might say well if he hadn't used them in that game then Ross wouldn't have pitched at all since September then you're throwing him right to the wolves breath no recent practiser exposure so I don't know I I didn't see that Martinez said that he was thinking of it even then but shears did say that he was already hearing signals symptoms and getting treatment for them on Friday so it's possible that he was thinking I better get another inning or two from Anabol- here because if I start dipping into the few guys I trust right now and then I have to use them Saturday than I'm not GonNa have them Sunday and how much can you really count on Ross to give you length so anyway I I mean Ross had pitched well down the stretch is eight starts after he rejoined the rotation fulltime in early August he had two point seven five zero he only had one bad start during that span but obviously he was not really trusted or highly valued by the nationals they left him off the playoff roster for the wild card game in the division series and the championship series and then they just brought him back for this series and as it turned out they really needed him so tough spot obviously to just throw him in there and I guess he did about as well as you could realistically expect to Rust do against the Astros in those circumstances he gave up a couple homers and he gave up four runs and he lasted five innings and I guess maybe if he'd had some calls way it it could have been better but obviously when you have Joe Ross starting against Garrett Cole you you can't really expect the a great outcome if you're the nationals so I am kind of interested in you know Garrett Cole had his streak of his historic unprecedented streak of eleven straight starts with at least ten strikeouts and since then he has made three starts without getting to a a double digit strikeout total which is actually the first time I'll see awesome that he's gone three starts without at least once doing that and he said after game five that he was tapped out that that was all he had I don't know if that's how he feels after every start but I wonder he's almost at two hundred fifty innings on the season now a wonder whether this is at all reflected of some fatigue again he gave up one run in seven innings and he struck out nine and walked to so he was great it's just that he hasn't white look like his most dominant self since the division series I cast and I wonder whether he is feeling some slight fatigue that has made him mortal but still really excellent and if so whether that factors into a possible came seven appearance and how he would be coming out of the bullpen if he's called and then he just wasn't really getting any lifts on his fastball didn't seem to have great fastball command but his breaking stuff is so good that he was just getting awesome that and then like getting called strikes on his fastball anyway because everyone was so bewildered so even compromised coal is really great and better within the Astros needed going up against Joe Russ Yep I was making the case earlier in this conversation about how Ryan Zimmerman striking out with runners on first and third you know it's it's hard to separate that from getting behind in the count oh one versus one oh and so I just looked in that Garrett Cole after one accounts this year struck out thirty five percent of batters which is the same as Max Scherzer Justin verlander struck out everybody yeah in fact I think if he started every Count One oh than he would have finished third in baseball in strikeout rate behind Orlando ensures her but only only like less than I mean you have to go to the tents to get a difference he basically would have been tied with children burland for the highest strikeout rate and base so if he had begun every Count One oh yeah okay wealth so maybe that didn't change anything anyway yeah he's good all right so going into game six obviously the nationals are certainly the underdog here just as they were they started the series except more so so I think fivethirtyeight fan crafts give them a fifteen to twenty percent chance to pull out the series it's you know you can easily imagine a path through these next two games for them it's two games like the Astros have many times lost back to back games against worst teams than the nationals nationals are certainly capable of beating the Astros and back to back Games in Houston we have to cast our minds all the way back to last week to remember the last time they did that against call Andrew Ender so obviously this isn't over but you got lander in Strasbourg and I I hope that this will will be like a classic pitchers Dole because the series was advertised as the world series with the best starting pitcher matchups ever and we just really have and got them like coal and Scher were not really themselves in Game One and game two I guess was the closest that we got but you know what was two two with the end of the first so wasn't like these pictures were throwing up Zeros and after that it just really hasn't delivered insures didn't even get the game five start so we haven't seen that sort of you know old school pitchers tool that I hoped we would maybe we will engage in sex so given how well Strasbourg has pitched you'd have to be fairly confident that he will keep the nationals in that game and then we'll just see linder has looked a little shaky at times uh-huh pretty effective but not unhittable so maybe that goes the nationals way and then you've got an intriguing game seven scenario which right now we just I don't know what it'll be so sir had a cortisone shot on Sunday he said doctors told him it would take at least forty eight hours for it to take effect and if it does the job then he may be back to full strength on Wednesday he may be back to some percentage of full strength that allows him to pitch but takes away from his effectiveness and door durability if he can't go then I guess you take him off the roster and you bring your Roy Austin both on for bullpen death but you probably hope not to have to use them and you just start Anabol- and hope you get a good game out of him and can piece it together there with the bullpen so it will be exciting potentially exciting the rest of the series has not been very exciting they're just there hasn't been a lead changed like we haven't seen a team come from behind to take the lead since the fifth inning of game one so this really I know that the final scores make it look more lopsided than it actually is but it has not been a very exciting series on the field so I'm hoping that game six and seven if necessary will give us some the we've been lacking it really is an extraordinarily bad coincidence or or bad timing obviously but like if servicers I had I mean he has five months that the universe had to do was just let him get through Sunday that was it and this thing that is not a common thing it's not like this comes up once a week for him running like that it just suddenly appears at like literally the the very worst time in his entire career late in the literal worst day a day earlier and you know what a day earlier he gets the cortisone shot and he's fine at least by game seven a day later maybe two days later then he's got the start and all it does is maybe cost summoning out of the bullpen or two and he's out of the ball game seven any other day of his life before or after now and it's just not that big a deal and said it happens that day so when I heard the forty eight hours or at least forty eight hours I immediately thought I started doing the math and yet oh my gosh and so who knows maybe it's forty eight hours maybe it's forty nine maybe it's fifty six maybe at sixty three but you can almost script it like the perfect thing is what time they start on the east coast I guess it will aid so in Houston it'd be six six six right all right so five thirty he still can't go it hasn't kicked in you know Sanchez Starts Corbin's warming up from the first pitch and then six forty live from all of a sudden all clears out like you move a grain all pangea rains out of his body is head snaps up and he looks around down and he just like he doesn't even tell his his manager he just like runs on the field like I'm going coach got it and then like he pitches the final seven innings I mean like Pedro style right like yeah that'd be that the timing is almost perfectly setup to create the maximum drama yes there's a maximum like stress I for him and for nationals fan but for us it's like what we won't know probably in advance it's like either he will or won't be able to go but we won't find out until like pretty shortly before that so you won't find out until right before the game probably maybe probably unless it's a yes and then you'll find maybe you won't find an if it's a no then you won't find out it's yeah and all the way now until the final pitch I mean could come out for the night yeah he could come out of his TV hours difference I just hope that he's sitting in the dugout not the bullpen because my very very very favorite thing about postseason baseball is when the star walks out of.

They're the cowboys Alice have may have real doubt Minnesota is about yeah Minnesota in Green Bay that was on the Road Minnesota has had to really good performances in a row by kirk cousins which is usually the limit of his good performances in a row if you like Minnesota you give one on the road yeah I this is one where I know the Detroit didn't have the winning records that doesn't qualify live with kirk cousins rule but it's pretty close I mean you're right about Detroit they're the I I know you're supposed to be what your record says you.

who they are I'm not getting any more you're not getting any today yes I would rather I'd rather give the bagels two birds outside today than give it to the people who stole from us yesterday you guys just can do this I don't have I don't have any sound in my ear at all me neither Gary Braun is here Chris Elicits here Michael Kornheiser's here Nigel's producing running the board doing the news not

I love it here I love the fact that it's close to my house I love the other studio we were in this adequate for us that's all we have five people on the microphone and if Bill Isaacson shows up what is he going to be on Tony don't be a fool I told him let's make a deal now how's your seat for the day I got a better chair shares better making progress can I complain about the Wifi yes go ahead I mean it's like a hamster somewhere running around trying to make it work because it took me style up I was eight point eight K p always trying to pull up a website called CNN dot com it's a good one you should check it out and it took me from the time I sat down until ten seconds ago to make that happen and we need a little bit more connection can I just I'm not I know this sounds like I'm complaining I am complaining about this particular space we have been treated great here I love the people at Wm I could not have them be more endorsing of the people I'm just saying that this this is like living in a shoebox it's just very very small on the air and we're very close tonight's technically it's not awesome well that's the thing that I mean dissipation issues every day I just can't complain yesterday so I'm going to today I just want to point out that the Wi fi at this particular building has been provided by China so it wouldn't China do you have you wouldn't last shower we don't want any claw came out of the gate Michael Commenting on his show Saturday yesterday so we finally recording I I will tell you all how thrilled I was to be in front of a live audience again you sounded legit happy had a lot of people over a hundred people there and it was really really Nice Moran who ran the whole deal for sides Tried to lock us up to through deal immediately after the show preying on my own inadequacies and and the fact that I do anything of someone praise uses me we agreed to do it again to you in the president so not this coming Wednesday but the following Wednesday we will again be clydes thirty now the is that what it is the thirtieth it's over there that Halloween day that's going in Halloween costume no no I don't care no problem one thing that I would say did not work was the shape of the table it was just a straight long rectangle table we'd like it to be u-shaped like to get a table it's u-shaped fisons down the line yeah I see everybody your action is better I sat at the no no no where I was sitting because I was sitting back to everybody in the audience showing there is to look for the next show right serve you're on your own podium everyone else on the show is on lower podium that data television riser and I don't like that I see that Colin Coward where does that yes and I know I know some bit yeah I don't that's not gonNa work from me but what works for me notice I was I was in the audience so we're going to do it again in two weeks somebody noticed me no show tomorrow because my leg is I have to see a variety of doctors both today and tomorrow so we may not have a show again if I don't make it through the weekend on my leg we learned that I was just want to point out one other thing about yesterday's show the way clydes did it and I don't know that they would do this again Wednesday it's their business but they just sort of had one breakfast option flat rate but full happy and I left there I think to myself I wonder if we should have done that a chatter would have been like less would have never had that many peop- let's Jags US right we never had many people lie I walked out of there thinking this is how restaurant is run I was running the restaurant so it's my fault it is my blame I understand the one thousand times royal tell you the worst I was on the phone with Allenby abyss later that afternoon and he just had just this sadness in his voice when it just goes there are a hundred and fifty people there for breakfast great warrant there we're able to eat our breakfast here if we need to make a deal with clouds that we get some Tony the chatter or once every two weeks probably would have been more people there too they can I point out as you beat yourself up for what happened with Chatter Bill Belichick failed at Cleveland so when the is over the length of the show called yesterday and asked if I would just talked him for a little while about the nats and the city of Washington and what it all meant now I won't do that I won't go on other people's radio shows amount do that and the reason I don't do that is kiss I don't WanNa make news on somebody else's radio show I'd rather make news on my own radio show hello and God knows what they're going to entrap me into saying and because I'm not that smart so I I just sorta decline a lot of interviews in isn't it also true Mr Kornheiser of that kind of line of questioning you know but I do this because it's The Washington Post and even though people at the Washington Post have been cruel to me lately Cindy born even though they had have and they've tweeted bad things about me which thankfully I haven't read I how old allegiance to the Washington Post I love The Washington Post I love Mark Fisher I went on on and on and on for probably twenty minutes I didn't even take a breath and I you know every once in a while I says you know what I mean mark you know what I mean you know as I do have the right dates or something like that he used about eleven seconds but at the end and this is the point I wanna make the one thing I said was still make me look stupid I mean that's all you're asking when you go into public view just when somebody else has control the interview just don't make me look stupid harder for some of us another right so I you know and so mark could've made me look stupid but mark didn't and quoted me accurately some small part of the peace and it's a very good piece so I'm grateful for that is about like dc how react to the world series and baseball in DC over a long period of time where it didn't exist when people say well this is the first time in the world series in one hundred year well there was no team that's the is not I got here in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine there was no team there's no team by from one thousand nine hundred seventy five on yeah thirty years years what are you going to do Ted Williams was the manager years and the second go round and third go round to this so this leads me to what I want to discuss in the opening segment here there are three opportunities there are certainly opportunities when okay there are certainly two opportunities to throw out the first pitch in world series game aim in Washington DC there might be three if it goes five games but they're certainly to I've got my pick they've already burned Alexander Ovechkin and they burned Elena Delle Don champ millions of teams in this city they use them in the NFL C. S. and wisely so they are the right choices you cannot in my mind come back with another capital because he's the capitol right that's really I don't I don't think you can come back with anybody else from the mystics but somebody else Kevin Blackstone says you can even blackstone said to me yesterday you can come back with Christy tolliver 'cause she won a championship at Maryland and she wants a championship here but I'm going to ask you for three people and and and my only my only criterion is they have to have been champions because you gonNa Trot somebody out there who got close got any ideas from the first one that comes immediately to mind me now I'm I'm biased and I've worked with him as a friend of mine but that's John Regan's I mean I really yes I over Joe Gibbs Joe Gibbs is number one to me I don't know if he would do it but gives us number Chris Okay I got a couple go on Donald John Trump the greatest champion of all it does kick winning K. Perfect first pitch right to John Wall another champion the Jerry Lee game six number three's I already said him Donald Trump again because let's be honest he should be on the list twice Michael Clinton portis in costume Brown yeah and I think the obvious choice Bryce Harper okay so none of them were champions of anything well that's your judgment the winning count winning off what I've got I think you'll gibbs's number one redskins on some level or number absolutely cannot get Joe Gibbs because Joe Gibbs says look I'm not going to do this I think you have three people come out there I think one is Darryl Green one is John Riggins one is Joe Theismann who's warming up right now to do this who's ready do they are all they are all super bowl champions and they represent what was the most important sports team in this city my second call is wes unseld but I don't think wes unseld is physically ready to do this oldest West my third call is a combination of champions my third call is John Thompson Gary Williams to go so if John I don't know what John's health is I don't know he is he had lost a bunch I mean I agree but he was telling you that those who are caused other people now Kevin Kevin suggests that another somebody else suggested Patrick Ewing he's back here yeah he's a champion and he lives here now West until the seventy three I know I know he's not that old it's Almo- Almost Baden Kornheiser you've got Jackie of that sugar ray Leonard we're not Champs Sugar Ray Leonard Sugar Ray Leonard hasn't lived here in a long yeah but sugar ray Leonard is legit he's from here the heavens oh yesterday wrote her down I'll give you one more and there's a lot to choose from I'll give you the only person well I'll give you two more one if there were descendants of Walter Johnson trains direct lineage could throw out a pitch but I think there's one that who should do it if you get to that and that's Jason Word he won a world series with Philadelphia he was the first big signing here and distinguished himself I think throughout his career here but if I had to if I one the redskins have to do it in some form or another right so what do you think so let can I can I just ask you about there's one other and I don't know this would be.

"And the nationals had this incredible eighth inning rally with the wan Soto bases loaded head to add the victory for Stephen Strasbourg and and do you know how to put on the mound to close it out they win the wild card they advance for the first time in five postseasons tries but they earn a date with the Dodgers and probably get shot out in the opening game six nothing courtesy of Walker Buehler a couple of home run some errors from how you can drink and so for David Martinez that completely different postgame not reality. they're really good that's why a command post season so many years in a row we do we play very well today what a lot of guys chase a lot of bad pitches I think a one point. I got a look put up we were way over twenty twenty pieces that we chase and that's on characteristic of our team. no place to go but up and the goal is always to grab a. at least one of those games when you're on the road you want to grab one of them if you possibly can also the nationals record at twelve strikeouts but they also allow seven runners on base via the ball via the walk and of course the the bases loaded walk with the first run for the Dodgers in the opening frame against Patrick Corbin that was Clayton Kershaw in game number two was so interesting choice by Dave Roberts it worked to perfection with Walker Buehler is one hit six innings of shutout ball on Thursday night but now it's Clayton anything he brings a different look he rarely hits ninety miles per hour all I know the gun with his fastball anymore but he's got so much experience and despite not having overpowering stuff he's put together a really good campaign. you know how you feel you know coming out of starts in this season I FO grade the whole year after those first couple weeks so I'll I don't I don't think I'll have any problem bouncing back I'm not really focus on that right now though you know focus on the more obviously but if there is a game five in a mass in the pan and I'll be ready for that for sure one of the things that I really appreciated side that I heard Clayton say on Thursday is that you don't take advantage or excuse me don't take for granted these opportunities anymore he's been in the league for more than a decade he's made a lot of starts in the playoffs they've gone to back to back World Series and he said the sense of urgency is so ramped up when you are this lady in your career at at whatever point he decides to retire it's not as though he's done or ineffective well whatever point he decides to retire you recognize when you're closer to the end of your career from the beginning that these opportunities don't come around every day even getting to the play offs is nothing to sneeze at but certainly to go to back to back World.
"nationals" Discussed on The Lead
"Hello Hey Brittany. Yes say under skelter from lead how are you. I'm doing yeah well. However you not too bad. So where are you right now so I am in the small little media workroom here behind the Press Fox at Nationals Park Nice this and I gather the press box at nationals park is somewhere that you spend quite a bit of time. Yes by family friends would say that I probably spend too much time but I wanNA talk to you about the nets season this year because it's such an incredible comeback story but I what was the feeling within the nets team coming into this season. I think the sense with the nats coming into this season coming into day one a spring training was it was going to have to be the world series or bust they had been so good for years and years had won so many division titles and and the sense was this was going to be their time they were they were tired of waiting and then in spring training this year they end up losing. Their franchise is player. The waiting is over. Baseball's biggest free agent is made his decision Bryce. Harper will join the Philadelphia phillies reportedly signed three hundred thirty million IAN dollar contract with the phillies. Did I write three hundred and thirty million dollar contract incredible and what was the feeling in the clubhouse within the team when they lost bryce Harper I mean I I imagine it must have been very deflating. Actually what was interesting is. I think a lot of players felt a lot of relief and the sense I got in that clubhouse with guys in spring training was they didn't really want Bryce Harper back and to be clear they liked him. He wasn't a bad guy but the problem was as one guy told me in spring training. He seemed to suck all the air out of the room. He was always going to be the center of attention attention. He was always going to be the focal point and guys were sort of tired of that and yet coming into the season. There was still this big question. Can this team win without Bryce Harper or how will this team win without Bryce Harper that absolutely was the question going in and and as a whole is nationals team really had to prove that moving on from him from this big star who's capable of putting up gaudy the numbers they really had to prove as a team that they could be better without their franchise player and so then at the start of the season all of those questions about could did the team win without their superstar seemed to come true. I mean it was like all of their worst. Fears seem to be being realized they had a awful star and they had double digit players at one point were on the injured list so it was absolutely a tough time in April and May I remember. They got grounded their plane leaving Philadelphia and there was a player on that plane who just yelled when they were sitting on the tarmac. Why does nothing go our way and it just really summed up those first two months for the nationals nationals and just put this in perspective at one point they were nineteen and thirty one and that's a deficit. That's almost impossible to recover from. I mean in the past three decades. There's only two teams who had had that deficit and had recovered to make the playoffs yes but then the team ends up going on this incredible run in the middle of the season. What was the key. What changed one very simply? They got healthy. Be They got back their third base. Benny Anthony Ren Dome Barrett coach lighter the rundown slim's. He's one of the best players in baseball. They got back shortstop trade turner breach. You turn the trump suit. They picked up a player named Gerardo Parra. He became an infusion fusion of positivity and he became a big reason for why these guys started to believe you know what maybe we aren't a losing team. Hara became that guy. He became that spot deep right center. The first is a national Grand Slam he said why aren't we having felons. He said every every time we hit a home run. We're going to dance in the dugout and that became a thing they dance in the dugout. Go out and they dance and they dance and they dance so they danced their way back into the playoff race and then just a couple of weeks ago. There's this really scary incident with their manager. Davey Martinez Braves First Baseman in Charlie Culbertson was hit in the face by a pitch while he's laying on the ground. Davey Martinez walks out on the field. He asks the UMPIRES. If that was a strike or a ball Atlanta their manager their dugout take exception to this Davey. Martinez has come under fire the media there's tons of articles that come out about how he's heartless so now. Davies under extreme stress Midway through the game against the braves he starts to experience chest pains they take him through the dugout back into nationals park some of the signs that he's exhibiting our classic heart attack signs and what was the diagnosis. The diagnosis was just a lot of stress. They think he had some kind of of anxiety stress panic attack but there also is some questionable stuff going on in that heart. What is he like as a guy. What's his personality he. He is one of the nicest people in baseball he is a guy who when they're nineteen and thirty one he's walking around asking asking how you're doing and waiting to hear the answer okay so after his heart incident. How many games did he miss so he missed three games and the hospital actually wanted him to miss more. Dave Martinez was still texting lineups for the team to us. He was watching gains in the hospital from the House did not yell the L. for text messages from his hospital. Yes he was watching games. Even though he wasn't supposed to get stressed out giving his input and a lot of the players reached out he actually got total outpouring of support. They wanted him to to stay around for a little while and he said to me. You know what I gotta go. I gotta go be with my guys. I gotTa go be with my team and that's exactly what David Martinez did. It was hard to wash Washington to not be part of the guys in the dugout. Not My everyday conversations that we have daily. I missed the last few days so I'm in.
