"Alonso becoming the second fastest in baseball history to reach 100 career home runs. Well, here's Nelson Cruz. Other end of the spectrum closer to the Albert Pujols, part of the spectrum 41 years old, the oldest in major league history to ever blast 30 homers in a season and boy was he on point in the race Big victory over the Red Sox on Tuesday night. 83 Dave Wills on the Rays Radio Network. Four for 52 home runs for RB and enough to make Kevin Cash grin as the race continue to hit the snot. Out of the ball, including Nelson Cruz. We added a very special hitter. That is certainly going to do his part to contribute to the offense of the runs. But when you add another when you add an elite bat like that in the lineup, um Everybody else around. You probably sees some better pitches to hit because everybody knows where he's sitting in the lineup. Obviously longevity and just being really, really good, really talented, uh, worked so hard we've seen now for a month and a half how he keeps his body and shape. It just takes care of himself ready to go. And you know it is his stats speak for themselves. Considering what the Rays have done since he joined the team and his numbers even to start out September. It's no doubt that Tampa's really enjoying the pop acquired from the Twins in late July is Kevin points out. He's hitting 3 75 with four homers in September alone. He's already scored. 11 runs with 10 RB to start the month and so here are the Rays in the stretch run, and Nelly is taking this seriously. They are now. 88 51. Tied for second most wins in baseball with the Dodgers, who are just a tick behind the Giants, who have 89. Then if you're keeping score at home, the only other team well, I suppose you could sort of count the Astros as part of that race. But as we get closer and closer to the end of the month and the end of the regular season, the Brewers also part of that race for best record in Major league baseball, they've got 85 wins. They returned the favour and shut out the Phillies with double digit runs last night, 855 to 1 to 4 to 27 Glad to have you with us on our hump show. What is now? Your Wednesday morning. Good morning to you if you missed it, Layla Fernandez, the Canadian team is who is taking the U. S. Open by storm is now into The semifinals. There's nobody left from the United States, so maybe you can cheer for Leila. This is right after she turned 19, which is 19 and two days, two days old, That's uh It's a lot of youthful enthusiasm and energy and the fire that we see on the court every time she gets out there, her first Grand Slam semifinal and the youngest to get that far in the women's bracket. At the US Open since Maria Sharapova in 2000 and five She was 18 years old. It's been pretty amazing to see what she's done so far. She's already knocked out previous champs Naomi Osaka, Angelique Kerber and then last night in the quarters against the number five seed Elina Svitolina, and so here she is, and everybody's learning her name, and she's figuring out how to take all of this limelight and attention in stride. The first few days. It was definitely a little bit hard, but like I said, I've been very lucky to have a great team around me. And I was very lucky to have doubles the next day to keep me grounded. And now I feel like I'm a little bit. I'm more used to it. So, like I said, I have a great team around me. Who helps me keeping my head a little bit leveled. And just think about my next mentioned not think about all the good things that are happening to me. Yes, you got to keep focused. Of course. I mean, that's a huge thing, And we've talked about it a little bit with Novak Djokovic and the fact that he has to stay focused on the task at hand. But it's great that the crowd is behind her as well. They really adopted her as their favorite at Arthur Ashe Stadium, And afterwards she had a conversation with her dad, and it's great to be able to have your family there and certainly at 19 when you're in uncharted waters. That's huge. I called him right after the match when I was in the when I went to the locker room, and he honestly told me that I put him through hell and back, but this match, but he's very happy for me. And, uh, he's glad that I was able to fight for every point, and that I I deserve this one. And I just keep working. Enjoy this win today and tomorrow we'll go back to work US Open semi final She is right now not only part of this youth movement that's taking over at Flushing Meadows in Queens. But it's also got a megawatt smile that you really can't help but just be drawn to her and and be excited for her. The fire that she brings to the court is awesome. The fist palms and the yells and the emotion 19 years old and this is what we love about sports right from the category. If you can't make this stuff up the stuff that we never saw it coming. After hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS Sports Radio I mentioned that wanted to throw in a little bit more from the quarterbacks Well, Tom Brady and Dak Prescott are getting ready, of course to step on the field Thursday. Dac we have not seen since week five of last year, but we know he is jumping at the bit to be part of the season opener, and they call it a huge opportunity. Mike McCarthy echoes that and his excitement for what's to come in the next few hours. It's a great game. We talked about some of the team meeting today. Just you know how unfortunate we all are to be part of it on whatever level most importantly, the players, I mean the the opportunity to to play in front of a stadium. That's there to cheer the competition. Yes. For sure that hostile atmosphere, and yet it represents having that intensity and that energy back in the stands Now he is among the many who are praising Tom Brady, part of the Super Bowl champions, and now going into I don't know his 75th season as a starting quarterback in the NFL. Was definitely a youthfulness that has to exist to be successful, and I think he's in a As good as an example forever was ever was one to come. That's played the game or any support. Of what you need to to go about it and, um, and I think it's you know, he exudes that with every time he lines up so very consistent. I think it's a big part of his continued success. I just want to play it a really high level for our team, and I think they're counting on me to play really well to play on the type of football and capable of so I think just for me, it's going to be about Kind of trying to be the great.

"And that's been one of their problems is pitching across the board especially relief pitching but they've also had some issues with starters but that offense is so good on pretty much every night and you just really want to see that in the postseason i mean i think that if they had the pitching that offense could almost be on par with you know the white sox and astros which are probably the best in the league in the american league right now so i'm really interested to see what they might do. Yeah and you know that they're probably gonna add pitching. I am really curious about What happens with nelson cruz the deadline because he really does feel like they're only two possibilities for him in terms of where he's gonna land one could be chicago. White sox have had a number of injuries. They could use them at the other would be the blue jays and boy. You drop nelson cruz into the middle of that lineup. Wow that fundable. And also you know that with all those young layers between markets simeon and and nelson cruz in george springer. That would be at great and fun mix of players and they would put on a show the last two months. Yes absolutely. I mean either those teams i think would be such a joy for us to watch just seeing him in a lineup. Like that but definitely. I mean i just can't that would be obliged junior nelson cruz on the same team. I mean that's just pure joy in a nutshell. I would so love to watch that happen or a good talk with you.

"And opiates plus one fifty seven. That's insane and you know if you wanna talk about the impact. He makes on the lineup regardless if the jays needed or not. I think that kind of sums it up right there. And i in terms of where would he play while the jays. They're obviously going to find a way to make them fit in the lineup. And you know are still people on the roster that can easily be moved. I wouldn't be surprised at all. I don't know who would. Who would it be. i don't know for sure. But there's definitely people on this roster that is definitely a lock to stay on the team pass the trade deadline either way no matter what goes on from there. Yes john hayman report yes. He also mentioned oakland. And when you want to look at the oakland oakland lineup. He obviously is a better fit in oakland in terms of what the oakland athletics need. If the jobs are going to pull the trigger on that serve they are interested in it. Why not go for it. I don't understand you know if you make the argument. Yes they don't need it. Yes you know the lineups full yes. He's a. d. h. By these there's so many of that but the jays would find a way to put him in the lineup. You're not thinking about a national league interleague series with me. You're thinking about putting them in the lineup and obviously the d. h. spot. Yes that kind of sticks it with him In terms of him being a d. h. Everyday unfortunately but the lineups better on paper in the team gets even better. I mean we were talking about the bullpen. This year era. How much how many times leads been blown. You can increase the offense by getting crews and you can also increase the bullpen at the same time. I'm not saying. The james go all loud and completely unleashed their farm system for this but based on the front office. They are cautious. They make deals accordingly. And they've proven that you're after you're that they're not going to do that. Which is why. I completely trust shapiro and atkins once again. I think i've said that before they're really going to entertain this. Go for it. I i have no problem with the rumor at all. I have no problem with him. Being possible blue jay. Yes. it's kind of. It's pretty much a rental. Because he's here for only the rest of the twenty twenty one..

"I think you know the guys that we have seen them rumored to be involved with besides the guys they've already acquired on. We gotta rumor earlier today that the cubs are selling harassment. Danny saying that blue jays are in on. Craig kimbrel that someone. They've talked about that someone they've interest in he's obviously of what the blue jays needs a reliever. He is one of the best in the game. He's been doing it for years and years and years Some people argue. He's going to be in the hall of fame. Who knows but that doesn't matter for the blue jays. He's a really good reliever another guy. That doesn't really fit the bill. The blue jays need but apparently they could be interested in an Take it with a grain of salt. Because from john hayman but i'm nelson cruz designated hitter for the twins. Apparently he could be a target for the blue jays. Who knows how you know truth worthy that is how accurate it is but again nelson cruz. Craig kimbrel two guys that we've seen we haven't seen the blue jays on starters besides that one mention of jose berrios from jon morosi months ago. So i'm skeptical that the blue jays will add a starter unless it is someone who's under team control for awhile i if it's a trade and other trade with the marlins say a lot of great young pitching prospects and and pitchers that are already in the majors under team control for a while I'm skeptical that the blue jays go out and do much besides that. What do you guys make of a star with the nelson cruz. Rumor because it is kind of off the wall and a lot of people have not been happy with it. Because i mean you look at bluejays offense. It is one of the best offenses and major league baseball. That is not the weakness of this team yet. Nelson cruz would only improve that. He doesn't even prove feeling because he's a d. h. But you know forty.

"We're all hoping for the best in the second half we said. You can't understate the impact that really has on the rotation you mentioned the possibility of acquiring starter The blue jays acquired a reliever this past week. They acquired trevor richards. From the brewers exchange for rowdy to less they also got prospect. Boden francis from the brewers in that deal. It's exactly what the blue jays need to do. it's a move to solidify the bullpen. And this move in addition to the move for adam cimber in addition to a lesser extent. The move to choir Jake barnes all within the plan for the blue jays in terms of acquiring guys who can solidify the bullpen make. Those eighteen games at the bullpen is lost. I'm sure that count is higher at this point. make those go away and make those stop happening in the second. Half the thing i like most about this deal is and the other deals. Have the blue jays have made but especially still has not just focused on this year. You look at this deal. You get a prospect boden francis. He has good numbers. He's top twenty. Five prospecting brewers system. He just added a slider this year in aaa in his numbers. Back it up. That he's made pretty big improvements He's kind of projected as a back end of the rotation guy in the majors. And if you're getting that guy as a toss in deal where you only give up rowdy says. I think that's really good. I think that's pretty awesome. And i liked the fact that the blue jays are not just building to win this year. They're billing to win down the line. And i think that's my favorite thing about this deal but trevor richards we've already seen him Maybe not a guy you go to and high level situations but he's going to improve the bullpen and that's all you can ask for see. I also like the creativity behind these because look at it. The first dealer joe panic. I think it's fair to say he was not returning next season. Came back on a minor league deal this year..

"And this came with very little fanfare. I mean, I did not know There was a lead up to this. I don't know. Back in the day, man. I think ESPN and SportsCenter would have gone live and had cut in live coverage off of this, But I guess you never know when this is gonna happen. Josh Donaldson of the Minnesota Twins scored the two million run in Major league Baseball history yesterday, trotting home in the first inning on a ground rule double by Nelson Cruz. Against Kansas City. This had to be confirmed by the way by the Elias Sports Bureau. And how annoying would this be to confirm? I sat in the thought about this because you would take okay. It's easy, You know, baseball, the seam heads and the stat geeks. They know exactly how many runs haven't scored, and they've been charting this throughout history, But I bet you there's been some controversial runs. And I bet you there been some asterisks and some appeals. You know, baseball has a way off of things always being debated after the fact and so I wonder if this is still in doubt, or if Elias once they confirm it, It's a done deal, and that's over. I saw this from the Twins manager Rocco Baldelli says. I don't know what to think. I'll be honest with you. He said, But I know the doubts and does on Lee big thing. So I'm surprised to hear not surprised to hear that he scored a two million front of all time. I guess this is very different, vastly different from when They scored the one million thrown in baseball, which happened back in 1975. As I guess Joe DiMaggio and Stan usual at the time, were helping promote That chase toe one million I I hadn't heard anything like this. Did the announcers even know We know Anthony announcers even know that this happened. In that game, because you'd have to be monitoring all the other games going on at the exact same time and try to figure out if any runs were scoring at that exact same time, So I'm guessing that this is something that was anti climactic, and they only found out after the fact. I mean, imagine what they say. You take 10,000 steps a day on average. Athletes take getting like twice that, But then you have the sedentary people that you know, really Don't move that much. And so I mean, imagine if the bells and whistles went off on your 10,000 steps every day or if it was your one trillion step. And all of a sudden people came out. With balloons and confetti. When you landed it I mean, I'd be pretty amazing. You would have to think about it. I mean, this is great by baseball baseball on Lee. The numbers are always of the utmost important in baseball, right? And unfortunately they've been muddied through the years because steroids and home runs so I don't know. Is this even sacred? Is this gonna be? Contaminated because of the steroid era. That was all part of it. Is it contaminated now? Because The way that we thought the ball had been juiced in certain eras. The ball had been left. And Steam room, right or a human or or whatever. I don't even know Is Joe Rogan hanging out with the baseball now so that it could be Juiced up to the right. Circumstances that we could get more entertaining baseball. What do we do with this information and If it took from 1975 to 2021. Right, so that would be 46 years. Because runs her being scored and at a much different pace. Right? I mean, I know the strikeouts are up in the no hitter Zahra, but haven't runs Been going up exponentially over the last 20 years. They could have to tinker with the rules to make sure that we don't have Imagine the craziness. If the three million to run would be scored in like 20 years or 15 years. Then what do we do? Congratulations, Josh Donaldson. I had no idea. Nobody told me and I don't think anybody knew. I don't think anybody at CBS sports radio knew this. Until I just said it. Maybe it's something that Kevin Dexter. By the way, I apologize, a very unprofessional early in the show. I call him Pete McCarthy. People have done that to me. Time and time again. They all call me Ken Carmen. They always assume it's just can't Carmen. I get that treatment all the time. So I apologize. But is this something that is going toe be in the update. Going forward by Kevin Dexter is there Is there a way we can petition Get this into CBS sports radio updates. I'm not sure but we come back. We'll get to some NFL. Maybe we'll get Josh Donaldson's reaction on all of this. But someone has to explain to me with the Atlanta Falcons were doing because I do not understand it, and this has nothing to do with Julio Jones. That's coming up straight ahead.

"Doubleheader, So they lost the other one. Because you're you're looking at two. They they're up for nothing in the top of the first against the Astros in the second game. They lost earlier today. 63 in seven. So a doubleheader angels in the Astros. So you know the Angels a bad pick. But outside of that everyone else in the pennant for the American League. I have the Oakland Athletics and right now. In the American League with 20 wins, the flecks look like they're the best team in the American League. Absolutely, and with two teams make it from each division. I mean the Astros or three games out, but they're still in. You know the Indians of 2.5 games out as of the White Sox, so they're both still in right now. The Yankees are only a half game back of the Rays. So yeah, they're both going to make it and in the Blue Jays of 3.5 from that, so it looks like it's gonna be the Yankees and raise out of the alleys. For sure it would be that last team to get in would be the Blue Jays right now. I think so, Yeah, 18 and 13, and that's crazy because the Orioles air 14 14 as well.

So like Blue, Jay said, 14 13 probably going to be a playoff team the way it is in the American League in the National League. That's what I had the Reds and the Cubs in the central Not great, Bob. Well, the Cubs they're they're They're fine. The Reds are 11 16. There's 6.5 games, backside in the East, The Nationals and the Braves, which the National's not looking hot in the 11 15 right now. In the West, the Dodgers and the Diamondbacks. The Diamondbacks are the worst team in the West. I did not have the Padres as a team that would be in the playoffs, and they have been fantastic. One of the best teams kind of the watching baseball 18 and 12. In the wild card. I had the Mets and the Cardinals. The Mets right now in contention. Some 500, though, and the Cardinals above 500, but they've only played 18 games. The Cubs have 18 wins. So this point this season my ale MVP was Matt Chapman. I'm sure right now if they voted to be Nelson Cruz because Cruz has been fantastic home runs so far. And the MVP. I had one Soto. Probably it would be Fernando Tat's junior. That's what you know. So does hitting 400 right now. So it always been. Your team's horrific. Yes, you've been terrific, like like if you had to vote between one soda on AH, team under 500 or the exciting San Diego Padres with Fernando Junior. I'm probably voting for Todd Jr agreed. I think so, too. Yeah, but, like Nelson Cruz is at the moment running away with the ale and VP. The numbers. He's put up our incredible Yeah, right now. Nelson Cruz is I just had this up here as Tyler Chatwood got out of the inning with 37 pitches. Tyler Chatwood get through. He's third in batting average. Right now. He's Ah, first in home runs. He's second runs batted in, and he's fourth in hits right now. So, Yeah, I mean, great season, He's top five. In all these categories. He also leads the majors and weighted runs created plus 1 98. I mean, so and not only that he's pulling for first place team. The Minnesota Twins won the best teams in the American League. So is there anything from the first half of the MLB season that six out in your mind where you could kind of say, you know what? I didn't expect that that's different. That's changed. That's something I like. I I think that it's It's not that I didn't expect it, but I don't think I expected with this kind of authority. It's it's Fernando Totti's junior. I think that that's the That's going to be the star of the first half for the first month or whatever you wanna call it of the baseball season. I mean, he's got 12 home runs, He's leading majors and home runs. He's leading majors and runs batted in. He's he's just Kind of epitomizing What A cool new baseball player is supposed to be right. Like he should be the new face of baseball. He should be what Major League Baseball wants to market as the next Great player in baseball, and hopefully he keeps it up because I think that if he does, the Padres obviously have a great player. They got a good team, but I think that the game is in a good place with guys. Like him with guys like Tim Anderson with guys like Javier Baez that don't really care about these old rules, and I'm just gonna I'm just going to hit. I mean, I just see it right now. As Stanford Steve Tweets it out. He's going to be on SportsCenter with Scott Van Pelt later tonight, so he's getting national exposure like baseball. Getting like. Baseball is a national sport, but we don't see baseball. Getting a lot of national exposure doesn't lead SportsCenter Tonight. I guarantee you, Luca don such is going to lead SportsCenter. No matter what he does tonight in the game, right, And we're going to carry that game at eight o'clock tonight. So no matter what, and then they're probably go too messy. And then because it's national and international issues all over the earlier sports center. Maybe that'll be then Luca Luca and the Clippers. So to see baseball getting national exposure to an interview on Sports center, they're showing Padres highlights. Obviously, there's someone based on MLB network because that's the network but to get national exposure for baseball. Is huge. And when you have a guy that's his charismatic as he is, I think that that's great for the game, and I think that that's going to be the story, especially if they do something in the playoffs. That's going to be the story of the season is the emergence off. Fernando Taxis. Junior Did you have pics for who would get to the World Series before the season started? I did not. Do you have pics? Now Who do you think you can get to the World Series? Someone stand by what I had heading into the season. I had the Oakland Athletics in the Los Angeles Dodgers. I think those are the two teams will get to the World Series before the season. I picked the Dodgers to win it all. I think the Dodgers will get to the world. Siri's in the NL is hard. A problem. I want to say the twins..

"Nelson Cruz of the Twins, the 40 year old Number 11 last night home run number 11. He's tied for the American League leading Oh, by the way, he's hitting 3 40. He's driven in 27, also of note with big sticks. The Dodgerslead Major League Baseball With 59 home runs. They have four players who have hit at least seven, led by Mookie Betts with 11 runs a scarcity for the Reds these days. I mentioned earlier and this is hard to believe. They have scored one run without the benefit of our home run over the last seven games and 56 innings fact they haven't scored a run. In the last 42 innings that didn't come on a home run. You have to go back to Thursday night. Mike Moose Takis, a third inning R B, I double other than that all the runs on home runs that Davidson Grand Slam for four on Friday night. The Wednesday doubleheader game, too. They scored five runs, all coming on Homer's Sunday. They scored Saturday scored none Sunday. They scored two, a two run homer by Suarez. Last night, They scored two a Sally home run and a Suarez home run one run in their last seven games, that either that wasn't a home run or scored on a home run. And give credit to Bobby Nightingale the inquire since a dot com they haven't produced multiple hits in an inning. In 42 innings. That would seem impossible to do. In their last four games. They have five hits, three hits, four hits and two hits. They interplay tonight Batting Tuo five as a team worst in Major League Baseball a little perspective, the major league batting average the average major league team is hitting 2 42. The Reds are hitting 205. Now. And I hesitate with this because it's a clash of a couple of things that drive people crazy excuses and analytics. Follow me. Here. Let me let me start with simple things to show you what's working against the red so far. Batting average on balls in play. That's what a team does what happens when a ball is actually put in play, not hit is Ah Homer, not a strikeout, not a walk when it's put in play. Right now in Major league baseball, the average when you put the ball in play is you hit 2 87 if you just put it in play. The Reds right now are hitting 2 20 for when they put it in play. What does that say? That says, To an extent they're heading into tough luck. Bad luck. It's due to even out And yet, I would highly recommend a piece today on Reds content, plus the website Reds content plus And this admittedly is a deep dive. I'm going to give you the cliff notes on this So your eyes don't glaze over. But out of this. There's two takeaways in this piece. One Reds left handed hitters are being killed by the shift. Now. There's a couple of different directions. You can go if that's the case, but one Reds left handed hitters are being owned by the shift that teams are employing on them right now, too. They're right handed hitters are hitting into really, really tough luck. If you look at stuff like exit velocity, you look at all the metrics. None of this should be happening. And that's not an excuse. I'm just telling you what the metrics say in terms of expected batting average, slugging all of that stuff that makes many eyes glaze over and you just pass out. But this should not be happening. That is what the Reds front office and David Bell clings to. Now the argument would be Can you really cling to that with just 33 games remaining because this is anything but A typical season. Red's content plus Take a look at who's hot Still ahead.

"The Nelson Cruz won the Miguel so no one but when Polanco hits that home run against James Paxton and you're down one nothing are you really nervous are you even in the bottom of the first inning when you set up with runners on second and third into out and Giancarlo Stanton swing in three and only when the third base and initially you think wow infield hit for Giancarlo yanks are on the board they tie the game up even when it's overturned rightfully so because young Carlo was out well you have a really nervous when Nelson Cruz today Yankee Stadium home run it would never nervous because you'll knew deep down. that the Minnesota Twins want there to be able to get twenty seven outs at Yankee Stadium holding down this offense they did for a while. we'll give them credit for a while. you know what the Minnesota Twins did last night that they cannot do if they want to have any prayer of forget about winning this series but making this series interesting they can't make mistakes and when the labor Torres came up in a big spot bases loaded one out here we go any grounds in with double play you've got to actually turn the double play but give the Yankees credit you give the Yankees an inch they get a take fifty feet so for example in the fifth inning when you walked the leadoff hitter and then yeah hit Brett Gardner and that was exactly tell who look completely overwhelmed by the moment you think you're going to survive that against the New York Yankee offense you think you're going to be able to get good labor Torres out again in a big spot like you should have done the first time I don't think so you think you gonna be able to hold the J. lemay Hugh down because by the seventh inning two outs guys on base and bye guys on base I mean everybody on base you think you're gonna be able to get the dilemma you out they're not. so the New York Yankees did last night what they have done to the Minnesota Twins over and over and over and over again in October you know what they did he's a little bit the game that yeah you want to take a lead cool then grab a leap the people in Saint Paul yeah I get excited thanks for a second that you're gonna be the New York Yankees dream about it and then we're gonna shove it. because I was thinking back as I was watching this game and we had a lot of time to think it was a four hour game I'm not complaining about it I'm not I enjoyed it I love baseball I love playoff baseball and I also know that eventually the baseball season again and so I'm not gonna sit here complaining about for our games not I'll tell you what it's going to be tough and if you don't know this I feel bad that I have to be the one to break the news to you but the Yankees in twins are gonna play game three Monday night Minnesota and we have a start time. now everybody calm down take a deep breath before I tell you the start time the start time is eight forty all right now we got that out of the way you could be up till two AM Monday night that's fine we'll live with it. but as I was sitting there over the course of the four hours watching this game I thought about the other Yankee twin series and I thought about Joe but angle I thought about my radio partner because Joe so eloquently after jet brutal losses has a famous rant where he says you can change the players and you can change the jerseys and you can change the owner and you can change the coach but it's all the same. well that's the Minnesota Twins versus the New York Yankees in October you can change the stadium from the Metrodome to target field you can change all of the players you can change the managers but it's the same thing because I'm thinking back to all the other Yankee toward playoff games it feels like the twins have had a lead in every single Yankee to win playoff game everyone of them they believe they give you a little piece of your twin fan and then the Yankees take it from you. well let's have allies Arab moon from last night because I thought this was really really fascinating and I tried to at at Mormons kinda tweet out what I was thinking in the moment and remember this about managers in baseball. the winners write the story. so last night in a non Yankee playoff game I thought Davey Martinez went crazy daily Martinez walked the winning run on to first base with two outs in the ninth inning. it worked because after a walk they got a big strike out on Corey Seager internationals once so histories written by the winners I thought in the moment that aren Boone did a couple of peculiar things with James Paxton and then his ball pencil let's go back to the fifth inning. now we all know that the Yankees strategy with their starting pitchers based on the numbers the numbers to back this up is they really don't want their starters facing guys third time around the order they want to try to avoid that at all costs Sir James Paxton was you know okay in this game he gives up the home run to pull long ago he walked Nelson Cruz right after that I thought was really big in that first inning is that he didn't let that get twenty strikes out a tough federal ready or sorry strikes out McGill snow works through it I thought the other thing that packs ended really impressively is he over came a rare miscue by DJ lemay humor detail may you drop the pop up and I think we all thought at the moment well this could be a big play turn out to be because James Paxton was able to get a huge double play against Louise arise one batter later. gives up the home run to Nelson Cruz it is a one two three four thanks to four innings you're feeling decent about the way Paxson is patched and what's funny is your feel even better when the Yankees given three runs and actually given the lead when you're down to nothing feel great about it when you're up three two you feel real good about it so let's get to the fifth inning he's facing the bottom of the order strike said CJ crone gives up that double to arise in which young Carlos stand makes kind of a a belly flop diving attempt now at that point you're on alert because now Paxson is about to go third time around the order strikes out Mitch Garver. in he strikes out Garber for the third time I'm thinkin along with Aaron Boone I'm not thinking like me because me still thinks me still thinks I sound like a yeah I think I did that on purpose me still things that I want to get as much from my starting pitcher as possible. I am not under the belief that I have to look at third time around number stats and live and die by it but again I'm not trying to manage like myself I'm not a manager I'm a guy sitting on my couch watching Yankees twins who just loves baseball the manager I know what bloons game plan is what is made it clear third time around I want to go to my ball pencil managing with them when I say I was surprised Paxton face Polanco. I was not think about it Polanco hit a home run against packs in the first inning and remember what he did the third inning he got robbed by Erin judge get used to that the judge had a tremendous game all the way around including defensively so Polanco is one for two but could easily be true for two I'm staring at the tying run on second base no nobody cares about wins Idoling arm bones thinking himself really want to give that opportunity get the third out the fifteen who gives a damn I got my bullpen warmed up. I was surprised not because I want to take them out again if I'm the manager I don't even know my bullpen warming up in the fifth inning I'm a manager from the nineteen forties I'm John McGraw go back further I'm not available but I'm managing with him I'm thinking along those lines and so I admit I was a little surprised that Boone allowed packs interface block on it did work because political came through it was a good app that it was a nine page at bad then your ribs when a left center field to tie the game up at that point I think we all know okay he's coming out of game obviously. now he's out. so now he goes to Adam on aveeno to face Nelson Cruz nothing wrong with that that one I think we're all in agreement with right hand hitter in cruise top right hand tighter one of the great slugger is one of the more underrated sluggers in the history of the sport that doesn't mean I think he's hall of Famer all time great the city really is underrated when you think about it. so he goes to a lot of you know to face cruise and give Nelson Cruz a lot of credit because he laid off some very tough sliders from out of vino and drool walk. now here's what surprised me. he pulls out of Reno right then and there for Tommy came we now from a match up standpoint great move right because we know Tommy Kaley is essentially that left handed reliever out of the bullpen even though he's not a lefty Tommy Kaley is a right hand pitch we all know that but he's very good against lefties the splits tell you that and so Boone is deployed Kaylee throughout the regular season as a guy that would come in and get the tough lefty out here is why I did love it at the time even though work I'll admit I mean everything worked the Yankees won the came to the fore. but the reason I didn't love it it's the fifth inning. and I've got a manage knowing Hey there's a neighboring. there's a seventh inning it and who knows if this game goes along the maybe a tenth eleventh if I'm burning out of vino facing one batter. by the time I get to the sixth and seventh who am I gonna have left no more on that later because we saw what his game plan was obviously a work because keenly comes in those one pitch gets Eddie Rosario out and then leaves keenly and to start the six thing which I of course agree with because I'm not gonna burn him after one bad are either the problem is I had a one two week gives up that home run to snow a very Yankee Stadium home run walks Kapler gets the strike out on more wind and then we see will go right back to the apple but which I green and what surprised me was green gets the two guys.

Well, so walls walls walls. Let's wallet all off wallet. All in having mental problems. Remember back in two thousand six we did pass an act with Democrats port to build a lot of fencing some of these like these steel slats, and you know, they went back, and they were like will zone it actually caused environmental damage we had issues getting eminent domain in certain cases. So that's why they result. We've revised some of that. With the president tweeted out this morning early. Let's just call them walls from now on and stop playing political games. A gall wall is a wall. And then speaker Pelosi digs in there's not to be any wall money in the legislation. And then Trump responds back if there's no wallet doesn't work. She's just playing games. If there's no wallet doesn't work. Great. I have by the way, I have. I have the answer you do know this. There's an answer to this. How to solve this problem? Because Democrats do you need to compromise a little bit here, we need some compromise in Washington. It can't just be Pelosi V Trump and the two giants Duke it out. We're starting to suffer in the middle. Okay. We we are we the people. I have the easy answer the Democrats and the Republicans because a lot of Republicans recognize what's going on here to let's put the five boys billion dollars in for the wall. And the let's call it that okay? The wall knowing that that five point seven billion is for scanning technology for ports of entry. It's additional border agents. It's judges it's virtual walls that they've been talking about a lot. But call it the wall. Here's why I'm saying this in just bury it in the legislation. Would it really is? Because the president doesn't read the legislation gives it read it. I'm totally serious. He doesn't read any of it. So let's just say it's the wall. Everybody used those words the wall. And I'll make sure call Brian Kilmeade. So I'm FOX from France. He'll just you say the word the wall. And we'll get this thing done. We'll get the five point seven. We'll make the border more secure way, more secure, right? So let's use things that really are going to make some more scared because we already have hundreds of miles of wall in the areas where it was identified early on in these are the high risk areas. We Al Paso. Port San Ysidro. There's already walls and fencing and we have vehicle barriers. We have all of this stuff in all of the key areas that have been identified long ago and continue to be identified as the key areas where we need physical barriers. And then let's be smart about the rest of. Let's just call it the wall. Let's get this thing done four one five eight hundred eighty eight ten Tom in concord, Tom, you're on KGHM with Ethan Bearman. I agree. I think someone should go spray paint compromise on the White House because no one even uses that word anymore. But. You know? I hear from the Democrats. It seems to make it a case of it's an either or thing and even Trump. The ports of entry are old and outdated with electron surveillance, and they need to be replaced, and that that is part of the five point seven billion dollar package. It just doesn't get emphasized by Trump for whatever reason. But he he has stated that it's a full spectrum package. You know, the surveillance doesn't work without a wall and a wall doesn't work without electronic surveillance. So why why is everybody making an either or thing? Complete package you need ongoing maintenance personnel. It's. What are your thoughts verify? I actually agree with you on that too. It's very interesting when when when rational mind, sit down and have a rational discussion about it. We can come up with solution so fast, but it's such an emotionally charged topic. But one of the issues that I have heard Democrats bring up, and I think that this is a valid point. There are a pair it numbers into the multiple billions of dollars that have been allocated to the D H S department of homeland security for doing some of those repairs that you just mentioned in the just hasn't done it. So one of the questions in this whole thing should be why isn't d- d h s spent the money that they've been allocated to do these upgrades and repairs that apparently need to happen in some of these key areas. You know what I'm saying? Why are we talking about that part more to? Well, because like you said, it's become political politicized. And I don't think the left wants to look like they're on the side of immigrants because they get the majority of the votes for the Democrats. And I think they're being disingenuous to this is this is an issue for immigrants illegal immigrants. Legal immigrants more than they affect citizens of the US. Well, no hang and let me let me go. I want to run with efforts, Tom. Thank you for calling in. Because you brought up a really important point. I was talking to a guy there, actually, I mentioned this on Tucker last night on Fox News. Guy recently. He drove me somewhere, and he came illegally to the United States. Right. He crossed the border without documentation without permission. In the nineteen seventies. He started a family. His kids are all US citizens. They were all born here. He agrees with one key aspect. So he's still an I believe he's still to this day on document. And I think the I can't remember what the whole reason around that was he explained to me mount remember that detail, but what he told me was he's like look, I want border security. He's like the wall stupid, and I agree with him the walls generally stupid except in urban areas. And where there's a high flow cetera et cetera because it's a waste of money. But he said here's what we do need is. I do want all the electric surveillance. He said, and I want to scanning he said because I don't want the cartels here. Either the cartels kill me, and my people to the gangs kill me, and my people to he's like, I'm just as worried about the crime as anybody else. So that's an undocumented person who came across and has a full and complete life. He's wonderful guy. Boy, it was so fun. I love meeting people that that's the one thing. I want to caution for all the people are so angry undocument- have you really spent time getting to know people because I do and when you spend time getting to know, your fellow human beings, they're not dastardly evil. Awful people mass murderers, dastardly evil, awful people who probably really should just be locked up and kept away from the rest of us. There are people like that who are psychopaths who have no remorse, and don't view you as anything more than a piece of wood those. But the overwhelming majority of undocumented people are not that get to know them get to know, you know, like. When you connect with a fellow human being you differently. You end up having more compassion. You want to understand how to solve the problem in a way that works better. I get to know my fellow Americans too. And everything else in between. But we have to make that effort to reach one another it is so important. All right. Well, coming up in just a second is huge noses explosive. It's all over local news. We are paying way too much for gas here to fuel our cars. California lawmakers want an explanation.

"nelson cruz" Discussed on Starting9
"Oh, that's an interesting process. I I mean, I think we're all expecting Encarnacion end up somewhere other than Seattle by the time. It's all said and done, but he's a tough fit, man. Like there just isn't that big of a market at this point for a guy with a opiates around eight hundred who has no defensive defensive Elvy. Now, he just takes the place of Nelson Cruz. Yeah. Yeah. He's just worse. Yeah. He's just not Nellie. No. He's all right. Lance Lynn to the Rangers on a somewhat surprising three year thirty million dollar deal. This is a guy who had to beg for a job last year. Yeah. One year deal. Yeah. And and the market came around didn't really pitch that. Well, no, he pitched well down the stretch do not. I mean, it was also this. He wasn't blowing anybody's doors off a four one four over the last eleven starts for the Yankees. Hugh is exactly what he was in Minnesota. He had a four seven seventy or a on the whole last year. Yeah. Like, I don't know. The fuck did the market opened up for Lance. Lynn this winter compared to last minute high don't understand this deal. At all me. There's going to be honest. I don't understand how he fits in with wear the Rangers going in their cycle. I don't understand where he fits in on the need to commit three years to him. No. Like, I just I'm all for players getting money, and I felt bad that he didn't last offseason. I just don't get. Changed? What was the biggest difference between this year and last year? This ERA was a run and a half higher. And he's. It was coming off a year in St Louis where he had a three four three are eighty one hundred eighty six and a third innings his your last year. He threw thirty four innings and was more than run hire. Yeah. What are we doing? And he pits. Over you. The market. That's why I know like say that again and see it again, slowly, all right? One hundred and eighty six and a third innings. You started thirty three games that was tied for the league lead three four three ERA hundred and fifty three punch outs. All right. Here's the number though, the fifth. Yeah. Almost a fucking. I was being a little disingenuous almost of five. So. Numbers. Point. So let let me put it. Let me clarify that. He's ERA jumped over run his fifth actually dropped a full run. So, yeah, if you're thinking about underlying performance, and we know that fifth is more predictive future ERA than ERA is than maybe there's something to this. And that Lance Lynn is actually figured strike outweight rate went up noticeably from seventeen to eighteen and I always think about guys like Lance Lynn because I mean, he's been some time in the bullpen. This is a guy now where hey at this stage in his career. If you're not getting the value of the starter that you think you got does he fit the mold of somebody who could give you three out of the bullpen or could be an opener of sorts where you just write him for two or three like the way that the the or of pitching and the way that the pitcher is being deployed these days. That's why I look at that. I'm like, yeah. That's crazy to think, you know, ten years or excuse me thirty million dollars over three years. Tin mill year for a guy who dealt the reformed got. No love was a late sign. What the fuck is going on. Maybe they're looking at some of these peripheral numbers thinking maybe in a in a small sample, maybe in a controlled environment here pedal to the metal. We could have something on our hands. I I think that that has to be a thought that teams have when they're pursuing. Pursuing guys like this is you know, what if he doesn't give us what we are looking for through six could we have lightning in a bottle through too? Sure. We're doing our best here. You know? Matt Harvey to the angels, my main takeaway here, and you guys can respond is that I was surprised at how much money he got guaranteed..
