"And crushed. Crushed your producer. I can't even watch the footage. The beltran example devon. I'm reminded of that. I've been able to watch that a couple of times. Because i bear none of the scar tissue that you just described but like the fact that he watched. Yes the pitches like the impotence from one of the greatest hitters in the game. Who then i mean comes back. Yes comes back. I mean what was it like to watch that scene for the one and only time and then have to welcome him back as manager years later i mean i think even i. We have to rewind because there's even some more messiness to this which has carlos beltran didn't just sit there with the on his shoulder for three straight pitches. He was the guy you wanted up in that situation. He was one of the most devastating postseason hitters of the of his generation. Up to that point we had a guy we want. And then he watched three pitches. Go by and he crushed our hearts and then fourteen years later. the mets. Hire this guy to manage our team. The curb all watcher. They hired him to manage our team. It was like pseudo somebody. Berries an axe in your chest and then fourteen years later. You your mom. Invites him over now. He's your stepdad. And i had to go through this thing where i felt like it. Was this really beautiful redemptive. Almost novel listrik arc. That carlos beltran was trying to pull off. He was just as wounded about two thousand six were looted talk to it in his press conference and i just want to say to the mets. Thank you for believing in me. I just can't wait to rewrite our story. Being demanded of the new york. Mets and i was like smitten. All over again. All was forgiven. Because again now i was convinced that here was the way we were going to win. Another world series here was how we were gonna do it because this is having with. Pull it off right. Carlos beltran redeems himself. He comes back and he leads us to the world series. This is how it was meant to be know how was meant to be is six weeks later. He got fired because he got embroiled in the largest cheating scandal since the nineteen nineteen plaques. And i don't know for the life of me how i didn't see this coming. I was picturing ticker tape parade with carlos beltran sitting atop afloat in all that time. I should have been like you know. He definitely came up with that whole astros team. It's just gotta turn out to be that way. This is the mass. of course. it's gonna turn out be this way so you start the book deb and you made this decision to start the book with triumph with the happiest moment for so many met fans with game six of the eighty six world series with mookie wilson and the slow roller end. Bill buckner and that's all going between his legs clean back. Why did you decide to start your book with triumph. That's where i started with mets for one thing. But also because i think that experience that night at tenth inning with sort of like was like a crucible of my entire mets future to come that victory was such an anomaly in my sports experience as a fan that it seemed like the right way to begin because everything from that moment was going to be an education. How fleeting those moments are rare. They are because so much of what the mets are. all about. as you start with high point. That's the anomaly. In the reality is is everything that comes next and that was certainly with eighty six mets. It also sounds like you just want an excuse to maybe relive the musical opus. That was get mesmerized. Almost a full chapter on get mesmerized and george foster. So you got to explain. Because i didn't know about. Let's get mesmerized. Because i was one in eighty six but it is. It is worthy of your description here. I guess the real origin story. Forget mesmerized mesmerizes the nineteen eighty five chicago bears because they had the super bowl shuffle which became a smash hit right. And so the eighty six mets come along and they're the dominant team in there. Like we gotta get one of those planning. George foster who has a fearsome slugger for the cincinnati reds in the late seventies in the big red machine became a very high priced. Free agent with the mets. He was someone who always had a side. Hustle always trying to have new business ideas and his latest business. Idea was the mets. Should make their own super bowl shuffle. George profit allowed this team better. Renton sheet any. Call the mesmerized this. You're gonna win the spirits together. And they did it on an off day in pittsburgh with a couple of friends of his who were very bad record producers. George foster managed to rope like seven or eight mets into cutting a rap single Darryl strawberry was on it Their shortstop rafael santana. Who books basically to english was on it. george foster's hair came into backing volkers. I'm sorry hold on. How did know pair get involved in a rap single performed by the new york mets. Well they needed someone to same and she was there. I guess or nearby and so it was very embarrassing. Very bad song. You actually so bad you definitely should go. Look it up because the lyrics are truly truly grisly. Also i will point out here that producer. Alex who was foolish enough to be on. This recording has just texted me. I've got the entire song downloaded. And i believe he refers to his soul and not as computer. Still as my name brand. Sean is my game. i'm real smart. Been manned mirages santa cruz.

The Mets Quest To Rebuild, And Rebrand, Themselves
"So tim. It's certainly been a roller coaster of an off season for the new york mets. How would you characterize the state of this. Mets organization as we head into the twenty twenty one season. I feel like the mets are still in kind of a period of transition as an organization. Steve cohen took over at the start of november and he brings in sandy alderson. The team's former general manager as his team president guy who's really well respected around the game of baseball and the thought was they wanted to instill a new culture for the mets to build this new mets team. That was totally different from what they had previously under wilpon ownership and for two and a half months they nailed it. We're going to build a process that produces great teams year in and year out. You bill champions you. Don't buy them. They nailed the opening. Press conference and i plan to make the investments. We need to succeed. It started signing guys. Trevor may and james mccann. They make a huge landmark trade for francisco endure and carlos carrasco the first week of january and everything was rolling in the right direction for them until mid-january and the story about jared porter and his inappropriate text messages and texts photos with a female reporter while he was a member of the chicago cubs front office in two thousand sixteen exposed that maybe the mets could have done a better job in the vetting process. That was clearly for a lot of baseball reporters. Based on the inference took off of twitter talked and he will find out his character. That's on you. Skepticism is really exacerbated. A couple of weeks later when we learned about micky calloway's misconduct as mets manager. In two thousand eighteen. Twenty nine thousand. Nine callaway sent unsolicited messages and photos to women among other inappropriate and harassing behavior. The former mets manager aggressively pursued the women through messages and in person the team released a statement saying was hired by sandy alderson. As the general manager. Calloway had been hired by. Sandy alderson two years before so i think all of the good vibrations from the first couple months of the offseason were undercut by what happened in the last month of the offseason for mid january to the start of spring training in february

"We did have a A trade godown wasn't a blockbuster. But i think certainly noteworthy is that. The red sox have been shopping. Andrew benintendi for quite a while. Now and i didn't understand why this guy was a top ten pick by the red sox not that long ago but here are the details in this three way trade between boston. The mets and kansas city. The red sox receive outfielder slash d. H. franci cordeiro Right handed pitcher josh win. Chaussee three players to be named later one from the mets to from the royals. The royals get outfielder. Andrew benintendi and the mets received outfielder khalil. ali now benintendi. As soon as he showed up last year he got hurt and he was offered a year. He only played like two weeks and batted one. Oh three he had a strained ribcage but coming into last season he was a career. Two seventy seven hitter and averages about eighteen home runs a game and he's due to make six point six million this year in his second. Rv'er so he has Another year. Sorry i know he has another two years after that. So i argue but the royals will now put benintendi in left field every day because if you think about with mary field i guess he's an outfielder our second baseman so a combination of him. Edward olive arison. Michael eight taylor. But the red sox for their part we'll get cordeiro which is a mix of alex dugo number. How highly regarded wasn't a dodger system. Hunter renfrow talked about yesterday as blooms gonna take a chance on him and that park but cordeiro as to thirty six hitter and he strikes out thirty five percent of his trips to the plate
Nine of the Ten Last Super Bowl Teams Have a Soccer Interest
"Piece about how the nine of the 10 last Super Bowl teams have a soccer interest, meaning they own one or partially own wonder controlling interest. Who else is involved in with that list? In that list. Well, well, you go back to the San Francisco 40 Niners were in the Super Bowl last year against the Chiefs. They actually just this week increase their equity ownership of leads. United from I think it was 15% of 37% spent up over 50 million English pounds Theo to do that. The Atlanta Falcons have been in a Super Bowl against the Patriots. Both of those teams have MLS stakes. The L. A Rams, who lost to the Patriots the following season. Their owner owns Arsenal on if you go further back beyond just the last five years, the Seattle Seahawks their owners own a piece of the MLS. Founders, But that's really the extent of it. It's more the last five. Six years where you've seen this trend before that, it was it was Seattle and the Patriots. The Patriots on the MLS is revolution that play at the same Stadium is the Patriots, and it's a It's not just the football connection. You point out two different multi team ownerships, right? The the owners of the Philadelphia 76 years on Crystal Palace, the team in the English soccer first division, right? And you're seeing this success force you're seeing multi Team ownerships, Uh, enterprises that owned more than just a team in one sport is sport. It's sports become big business. The ownership is crossing Not not just sports sports live boundaries but international boundaries. So, um, we'll probably see a lot more be more and more rare to see teams make the final finals of their sport. Just have that one holding new ownership group that that one team, I guess for. Some of these guys have some of these owners. Obviously you're super wealthy. It's fun. They they love sports. There's a part of that. Um, there are certainly owners who go at it that way. I mean, I think the new owner of the New York Mets see Cohen goes out and looks at it from this is fun. This is something I've always wanted to do. But when you Put together, uh, vast holdings across sports. It's more than just fun. It's a big business. Thanks. Dan Dan Kaplan, Sports business reporter for the athletic Coming up next.

How are you Very well very well. Thank you just get my fill of football today. Have you been checking out. Any of the games i i as a new englander natively i watched the buccaneers and tom brady very closely today so it's been football day for sure so you root for brady as a new englander i am i am. I'll be honest. I know. Maybe i should have that feeling. I just can't find it in me to be angry about it. So i joined this playoff good for them. Good for them. I agree i agree. Especially brady's give you guys so much joy over the years if he could get one last one with tampa bay. I'd be reformed to there. You go exactly. And i'm a jets fan and i have no animosity towards tom brady at all. So let's probably probably leaves you in the minority. Does i definitely catch a lot. Of flack from my jet fan friends for i'm one of i just can't hate greatness. You're good with brady. One of the best of all time but you know. I just like to thank you for for joining tonight. I'm a big fan of your work absolutely absolutely and I'm sure being a mets beat writer. There's there's never a dull moment seems to always be something popping up for this team. I mean all these shenanigans of the last few years with the wilpon and you know there's always something going on. That fans are complaining about and thought that we got this shining light and stevie cohen. That came here. And i think he's definitely done a really great job of putting a new face on this team and everything but then unfortunately it seems like the mets are snake bit and again as they have to let go of jared porter after this pitchers controversy and everything like that pops up What are your thoughts on how. The mets handled the jared porter controversy and with how quickly they dealt with it and got rid of him. I thought they handled it well. There really was only one decision to make it easy. Decisions made it quickly and they fire correct as soon as that story came out on. Espn late monday night. Last week he he was cooked no they could possibly keep him. Especially in the context of steve cohen has faced some sex discrimination and stopped in his hedge fund their employees You know litigating that right now. so The mets had no choice but the fire jarred quarter and they did it quickly and alderson. His news conference a few hours later and he said basically all right things. I think You know bad situation like that so ms wise it's over lists. I think if you're the cubs who employ jared border. At the time he conducted himself this way. Or if the diamondbacks perhaps who hired him a couple of months later than maybe you're doing a little more soul-searching about Your culture and things like that mets wise you know made from here on out say improve their vetting process in some way But that'll be another verse across actually make another big higher which they are not going to right now. Okay well that was my next questions. So you think the mets are just gonna stay pat. Do you think that that. Sandy is taken the brunt of the gm responsibilities right now. Yeah that's that's pretty much the way it's gonna work Sandy alderson signed up to be team president. Which in effect is the job. That jeff wilpon had previously And the plan was for sandy to hire a president of baseball operations to work under him. And then general manager who worked under both of them going to have to top baseball executives And now he has neither of those things so sandia stuck doing the job that he didn't exactly sign up for when agreed to join. Steve cohen in this endeavor But that's the job he has now. Zac scott who was hired as assistant. Gm the week after the mets hired quarter. He is in sandy's inner circle So he's you know the assisting pile but fix to said he'll be taking out some responsibility now that there's no actual. Gm no doubt about it. No doubt about it now now. They're going to run it this way for the twenty twenty one season. But you see. I mean i know a lotta met. Fans are very hopeful. And even before they hired jared porter there was a lot of whispers. That feel epstein. Now do you think that maybe with porter being out do you think if they you know. I know i've seen had spoken about wanted to take twenty one off for his family and spent some time self reflection and everything on those lines. But you think maybe in october twenty twenty one after this season closes at a and the mets are looking for a new front office personnel. Do you think that is a chance. Theo epstein Gets a call from the mets. I think there is close to zero percent chance. That often comes to work for the mets and You know i. I think that'd be a lot of fun to cover as a reporter. I think it would be great for mets fans if that did happen but that's just it just doesn't line up Theo said he wants to take twenty. Twenty one off he just got hired by the commissioners office who is going to be working for. Mlb for the next year at least you know. I guess we'll see how that role develops over the course of time But if if the oh does get back into the king side of things the expectation is that he'll want a of ownership and i don't think steve cohen interested in giving up any piece of the team that he just worked so hard to buy And then the other thing too. Is that the oh and sandy are basically peers on the same level right Theo ran the show in the way. Sandy does for the mets and for theater. Then take a job with the mess. That's basically less than the job he had with the cubs would just the. It's it's kind of a setback for him So while i think every team's goal to be the higher ufc I don't see it happening.
Just when Mets thought they hired the right man, they fired Jared Porter as GM after harassing texts to female
"And is the new york. Mets general manager jared porter. He was one of the rising stars in major league baseball and now he is unemployed. Always good the mets looked like they were on their way. They're reinvesting in the team and now he's unemployed because he was doing some offensive things and this is Interestingly enough like almost five years ago that he did it and now it's come back to haunt him and it's So last month he was hired as the mets. Gm and jared porter was fired for sending sexually explicit uninvited text messages and images to a female reporter in two thousand sixteen when he was still in the cubs. Front-office espn reported late monday. That porter sent dozens of unanswered texts to the woman including a picture of quote an erect naked penis in. Espn said. It obtained a copy of the text history. Many of the messages and photos he said were displayed in the report online. And so new. Mets owner steve cohen terminated porter in my initial. Press conference spoke about the importance of integrity. And i meant it. There should be zero tolerance for this type of behavior. And it's a. It's it's saddens me to think about the woman in question because she was a foreign correspondent who had moved to the us to cover major league baseball. And i guess. She met porter at yankee stadium. They spoke briefly about international baseball. The exchange business cards now the only time they actually ever spoke but then ported starts with texts like text a palooza complimenting her looks inviting her to meet him in different cities that he was traveling to asking. Why are you ignoring me. And then after he sent a lewd picture she had to ignore sixty more messages and then a vote. The vulgar photo that was basically straw that broke camel's back and the woman actually went back to her home country and left her job. That i mean the whole thing is sad but to think that the woman With everything that was done by porter here allegedly that that contributed to her decision to leave journalism altogether and return to her home country at just so sad across the board.

Mets fire GM over explicit texts sent to female reporter
"Fired their GM Jared Porter. It was not part of some housecleaning that Cohen started when he bought that team. Porter was actually part of the new regime. He was supposed to be a part of the solution, not the problem. No, he was not fired because he had not been active enough in free agency or the trade market. In fact, he was killing it there. No, he got broken off because he was too active on his cell phone. Not too active in a click bait, sort of way or addicted to instagram sort of way, but believe this dude could not put that phone down for any reason. How active how active you ask?

Report: New York Mets GM admits explicit texts to female reporter
"Report tonight and they have a lot of it verified by Jared Porter himself. Jared Porter is the Mets general manager who was hired by Sandy Alderson when he came in to run baseball operations following Steve Cohen bought the team. Well, According to this ESPN report, Jared Porter sent explicit unsolicited text and images to a female reporter in 2016 when he was with the Cubs that culminated with a picture of an erect Naked male member this, according to a copy of the text history that was obtained by ESPN. Here's the details, and then I'll tell you why. I can't believe he hasn't been let go. Already. The woman was a foreign correspondent who moved to the United States to cover Major League baseball. They had a chance meeting in an elevator. And she thought Jared Porter yellow. Jared Porter is working for the Cubs, and she was making a connection in networking. So they exchange information. Uh, that's the only time they actually spoke, was in that elevator when they met. So then Jared Porter and this woman start texting with each other and he text her. Hey, we should get together. We should have a drink, and he's texting her a lot, right. He's texting her a lot. And she's responding once every you know if you text Hey, let's get it. Let's have a drink. Let's do this. Let's do that on. They didn't meet for a drink. One night after said she could meet with him Jared Porter, sending unsolicited selfie of himself just a selfie of himself. It's me in this picture is in the ESPN article, and he wrote back like And she didn't respond. Uh Then he texted the next day saying, Why aren't we hanging out? You're so pretty. Do you have a boyfriend? It could be me on this is going on now for a few days. After she sent a selfie Now she sends a selfie back to him. And Porter responded. You're gorgeous. You want more of me? She said yes. Explaining the ESPN. I thought it would be awkward to say no, I didn't think of where it would progress. Then Porter sent three pick. Yeah, this is where l k doors opened an escalating quickly horses out of the barn. Porter then sent three pictures, including the first of several that would show a man lying on a bed with a bulge in his pants. The woman was initially confused. Quarter wrote like she laughed again and texted. Yes, though she told ESPN Shin and realized the intention of the photo taken. You're not married, she asked. So okay, so here's little bit of him, sending a lot of text and it seems a little weird Stalker ish and some stuff you wouldn't send. But she is sending back to him, and she's sending things like yes, and liking pictures that he sent So then she realizes that things were getting to a sexual nature and she doesn't respond. Quarter than saying. This is this is the big deal. Porter then sent 62 unanswered texts. 62, including seven photos. That included the final nude photo of a naked male member. Now. When Jared Porter was asked about this, he admitted sending the text and then when he was asked, Are these pictures of you? He said, No. Those air stock images so apparently the Cassis I went on Twitter and found a stock image of I went looking for male members everywhere. It's all I got to use. This one wanted representative, I guess. Yeah, I gotta get going. Does that have that? Have a birthmark? Does that of this was And so that's what he said. He said Then, when ESPN told them we're running a story on this, Do you want to comment? Jared Porter stopped and didn't call them back. The Mets released a statement tonight saying they have spoken with Jared Porter, and they will have Maura after they do their own investigation with this now, obviously, this is just happening, and you can make an argument in the in the in the first part of it that Well, what was he overboard? She have sent those texts? No, he shouldn't have. But she did send back responses that were in the positive of Yes. So he thinks, okay, I'm cool, sending these images to you, and then when she cuts it off, that's where things get back because then 62 texts. That go unanswered. And then you're still still sending naked pictures of of male members. Uh, yeah. You know Jared Porter, I think you've had your last day Has Mets GM. I mean, I know what happened when you were with the Cubs. I understand that. But this is a horrible optic that the Mets don't need the entire time. He's GM Who's gonna take him seriously, who forget about whatever charge you might face for stalking or Harassment. Whatever it is, Uh, really? You're gonna keep this guy around. I just don't see it. I mean, I just don't know. Is it gonna happen in 12 hours is going to happen in 10 minutes, but the Mets can't go forward him is the G M. Because at the very least, this is a really bad optic. They don't need that. Just going to embarrass the entire organization and they need to say you know what? Jared, I'm sorry. But, boy, this is too much for us and good luck and you're done and we're gonna have a new GM. And we're gonna call Jason Smith that Fox Sports radio because he's got a finger on the pulse. The Mets, and he knows we got to go get George Springer aren't I added that

Francisco Lindor: New Hope For Mets Fans?
"For a big splash. A big domino to tip over and the mlb off season and we got one yesterday. The new york. Mets acquired francisco lindores and carlos carrasco from the cleveland indians for two shortstops in two minor leaguers and enormous transaction. How surprised are you that this happened not surprised at all. Buster olney is the host of the baseball tonight partly cast and he has been covering baseball for more than three decades. Look the last few years there had been so much industry speculation about when would the indians trade lynn door. In fact a couple of years ago. Paul dolan their owner told that the fan base look. Enjoy while you can. Because it was an assumption he was going to be traded. I think if not for the pandemic he would have been traded in the middle of last summer so the indians move in now and the fact that the mets were the buyers. That's not surprising either. Because i think mets fans have been waiting for Steve owns team to to make a big move and he certainly did that. And getting the best shortstop in baseball. Yeah i want to ask you about the cleveland side of the equation in a little bit. But i i wanna dive into the buyer that you mentioned because steve cohn buster. The mets new owner hedge fund billionaire self identifying proudly so diehard mets fan from long island. He's been on twitter. I'll off season making very loud noises about this being a new different kind of organization. You know we want to be excellent in all areas of this game That's going to require resources. And i'm fully committed to making that happen. He is so monumentally. Wealthy i mean he was one of the few people who didn't lose money in this pandemic shortened twenty twenty season. So what does this tell you about the promise of his regime yeah. He's the richest owner in baseball. Now and i. I wrote a piece Free espn dot com. That for mets fans who have suffered through their. Ptsd of the wilpon. Yes this is that the finally they get their reward were they have an owner. Who's willing to go toe to toe with the yankees owner. Who bills a team. That has continued success. I don't just want to get into the playoffs. I want to win a championship. You know through the years. Since i've been working in the new york market the assumption whenever a really big name came up. Was that the yankees. Probably elbow the mets out of the way and they would get the players in the in. The mets would operate like an upper middle class team rather than a big market team and this deal signals a change in that. But what i do believe. Is this a major markelle tune during the should have a budget to measure with the yankees coulda used shortstop. There are other big market teams. That could use a shortstop. And the mets get the best shortstop so because you are a veteran of the new york market i need to know how is indoor going to help reshape. Just the identity of the team itself because i mean nolan reported future about him. We'll get to that a bit as well but just how good is he. What's potential here well. He's the perfect player for the mets right. Now he's an elite defensive shortstop smash back can't buy off-balance throw in recent years jacob. Degrom has been great. Despite the fact that mets have been really poor on defense. It's shorts especially they need more lineup. Ballots lindores a switch hitter. They could use more power drill door with law. Law door hits for power. They could use speed lindores does that. He looked like the road runner as he took off from first base and he absolutely has the personality to be the face of a franchise in new york. You talking about someone who loves to play is nicknamed mr. smile. Hangmen fans absolutely will gravitate toward him. Yeah

"They don't do a lot of teams don't do this. I think Yankees don't do a lot of cases. They don't do the right situational thing yet right? Exactly. So that's been that that might answer that to some extent, but they do have an offensively talented team will over the course of one hundred, sixty, two game season to Berkeley cliche probably would hit enough but patterns can develop and shorter seasons that are you know weird and No runners in scoring position after twenty five games. Thirty Gases is difficult to look at and project so. But yeah. I mean I guess that makes sense that makes sense. Yes. I mean. So I don't know. I, mean, the mets are capable of. Not Pitching this weekend. So in my mind, that's a huge win for the Yankees but also calls not pitching because they're both supposed to pitch today and on the Yankees don't have coal pitching they're kind of. Up in the air well, it's been a long time. Now it seems since the X. Two exhibition games they played but Montgomery in King did a Nice Job In those two games controlling the mats and when I felt like we learned from those Games was the Yankees. Are just way ahead of the mets like the Yankees. Non Star pitchers can. Handle the mets. and. The Yankees hitters can absolutely mall mets pitching and and they're. Not. The depth might be the most impressive asset is there yet of their roster is is legitimately thirty five deep. It is and that that's absolutely right and it's almost become cliche to say like all this guy's GonNa Tiro Astrada was gonna hit a home run tonight. You're not it happens in and they deserve all the credit for that the mets. Built some depth. It had a lot of injuries. I mean they're pitching death has been decimated by injuries they're positional depth. It's it's better than it was a couple years ago I mean they have some positional controversies right now they have a young shortstop Andres. Jimenez really has been impressive pushing conversation about a MED Rosario. WHO's GonNa play shortstop day? That's that's a somewhat of a credit to their the organizational depth that they have and they have dom Smith Impede Alonzo both of whom are Major League first baseman. So there's some of those. Type problems not as many. The Yankees are pretty unique in the fact that a Har- frazier? In Ford, are all like middle the order major league hitters Strand struggling for playing time but right right now yeah I it is crazy. So Jimenez is he I know he was on their prospect boards a couple years ago, but he seems to have a little bit into his own this year willing has he so he struggled and he's always been late defender he struggled offensively in Aa last year. So the the the height, the talk about him really quieted down obviously like if you can't hit double A., he's just glove guy it is what it is. Then he won the bank title near Zone A fall league. And since he's been up, has been a perfectly competent hitter. Like a dazzling shortstop and a guy who shown incredible baseball instincts on post game show todd zeal pointed out this little moment that I would never have caught. In a game, maybe a week ago where there's like a ball in left field in a couple of the it gets away Jimenez is playing short and. He and other players are chasing the ball. I can't remember the exact mechanics of the play but the point is there's a.

these guys would be getting whites the eyes away it's opening day opening day is close but will have opening day when New York City and the country is again open for business but we honor opening day by offering to opening day lineups one for the New York Yankees and one for the new York metropolitans vote here is where we are going to need your assistance your age your help you'll need to tell me the year of these two opening day lineups so let us stronger with the opening day lineup eleven to tell me the year for the New York Yankees leading off at second base Bobby Richardson Richardson at second base batting number two for the New York Yankees Tom Koresh treasure had shored batting number three Roger Maris Roger Maris in right field batting number four the Oklahoma strong boy the commerce conference in center making battle batting number five in behind the plate Elston Howard over there at first base number and batting numbers thanks demos are not related to moe loses the first moves that I ever heard of or ever saw but that's bill Skowron and he's batting number six batting numbers seven in left field for the New York Yankees Hector Lopez batting number eight over there at third Clete Boyer and on the mound Whitey Ford now what you have to do is tell me who well not so but well I could tell you they were planting Orioles like they could have been playing today that's for sure at Camden yards but the Orioles of course had does some people you may have heard of blue owl and Brooks Robinson Jackie Brandt and Johnny temple to name just a few so tell me the year and we're here until eight o'clock not a lot of time and also keep in mind after the basketball game between I will say ten to ten thirty we'll take your calls until two o'clock tomorrow morning but we're talking about opening day give me the year of that opening day lineup for your New York Yankees now opening day for the new York metropolitans and leading off for them it in center field Lenny Dykstra Dykstra in center field batting number two its second Wally Backman maybe you have heard of this man somebody has to call let me know what he's doing now batting number three over there at

numbers seven at third Howard Johnson had short and batting number eight Rafael Santana and Dwight Gooden on the mound and of course all I need is a little bit of help from those who might be listening we have a short ninety minutes you have to tell me what line up to start what season what year for the New York Yankees and the line up of course that you just heard what year was that the line up for opening day you might have heard about with the rob Manford last night doing an interview and of course say he knows no better than the rest of us just when we might have Major League Baseball he's guessing like we're guessing and your guess is good as he is as good as mine and my guess is good as his and yours so that's where we are with Major League Baseball and I think it's fair to say it accurate to say the virus and it's just increasing not only in New York City there were five hundred cases I just recently heard in Louisiana and most of that is attacking New Orleans they've had five hundred new cases of vote with the virus in a twenty four hour period so obviously we haven't leveled off that curve it hasn't I got aton level in any way shape or form it's doing more accelerating more with the core of going up that it is with the leveling off so at this point in time and again when we're going to have an opening day and the earliest and the very optimistic kind of gas is of course it may it may be June and may be July and Manford they did indicate that he isn't having a discussion with the the players association regarding the time and the place and what kind of baseball double headers are being discussed as we all know at this point in time with that second game seven innings they are also talking about salary and service time issues so all of this is on the table in the good thing is they are anticipating having had a opening day sometime in twenty twenty and even if we have half the season yeah they're thinking of also extending the regular season enter the month of October where we could have been very cold weather with the Mets and the Yankees having their subway series as you can anticipate in November but we should only have baseball to get us into the post season and get to a World Series as you know the Yankees go would have had they played today and the met said they opened up well with Washington at the Citi field I think you know you would have had certainly void over there at first base she would have had love may Hugh over there at second base score isn't short of course G. O. or shallow would have been over there at third Sanchez would have been behind the plate and most likely Miguel Andujar who was getting off to a wet spring training we had he would be the G. H. and of course in the outfield going left to right get out Frazier and Gardner and Stanton and as you heard from Aaron Boone earlier on the fan cleared to play was seven probably would have lemay who leading often Frasier may be batting number two towers three Stanton for Sanchez five voice number six gardeners seven add to our age and up shallow batting number nine had the match played today and you have to remember Conforto would not have been ready and neither would the Cuban defector so you're talking about the number four and five hitters in our lineup that would not have been at Citi field this afternoon probably you would have had never go over there and right fielder would've I'd make Neil I have third batting number two you'll know that Alonso would be batting number three forget with the number two let him drive in both make nail NMO just ran to first base on a walk okay no could not Robinson could know who isn't going to be excited to see that thirty seven year old second baseman batting number four J. D. Davis would probably be batting number five in left field Rameau's behind the plate Rosario which short and in center field with no buzzers underneath their Jersey Jake Marisnick so and I mean that in New York as of with all of this as a good as mine you could talk about Joe grime a we are not seeing him today we will see him this season and of course Yankee fans so anxious to see Gerrit Cole and they will see him this season when your guys as good as rob van forwards your guess as good as mine and our guys as good as he is no from the one eight seven seven three three seven sex sex sex sex as we opened this program and it's a ninety minutes for the Thursday part one and then you get the elite eight NC double a game from two thousand and five it is a classic between of course with the Arizona and Arizona well I'm not going to say anything but you know that Arizona was taken on album only and it's a very very exciting basketball game too here are your radicchio so no again for the one eight seven seven three three seven sex sex sex sex is a we didn't know the number to call on your face the internet has changed so should the.

"Another interesting story line with the masses they move forward in this off season is going to be around Jack Wheeler because Zack Wheeler is now free agent will he accept the qualifying offer I doubt it. I will will get a multi year contract from somebody. will it be the New York Mets. if I'm choosing between and I think the Mets will have to choose between noticing the guard. and that will. I'd rather have Zach will on the state. it's been better over the last two years. and is low maintenance synagogue on the other hand is a problem every other day it's always something within the got. plus it was in the go with two years of team control could get you something in return.

I'm not in favor of the Mets straight now when the as in the off season you want a white getting nothing with the year he is sad considering what you gave up to get on. selling ten cents on the dollar. could it would be as be one of these guys that never figures it out New York. definitely. but I want to see that drone of the year. I come to that conclusion next year if it would be as pitching the middle relief a live with that I am not going to just give up on it would be as if the one year selling ten cents on the dollar and in seeing go save fifty games next year somewhere else. Hey windy as next year because of how limited that market maybe should be on the stage. but these are not questions that come to the forefront when you're eliminated from postseason contention you start thinking about next year. mother Mickey D. as in Zack Wheeler. then you have the I.

"And they'll display the guys who are good like making yield turns out to be not good. They'll play Frazier who's fine and old and they'll display McNeil. So third base seems like David Wright will never die. He. He after the farewell tour the guy last year, he's still under contract. I don't know if anybody seems the realize that but definitely still under contract. Cylinder contract for the next two years. Full no-trade Todd Fraser still exists. Still being paid who's going to be the opening day. Third baseman for the New York Mets. Not David Wright. Come on. I was the biggest supporter of David right? Like, I was pandering the tape that he had a mole that left as long as two years ago. And like I thought he would be going again. But he wasn't. He's just done. But I love like, he's great. He's a great baseball thing. And you should hang around like be apart organization. People love them. But you can't rely on him as a baseball player. Most of the at bats third base. This season will probably just go jumping. Now, if I the guess. Time for Asian. We'll get some of those. But I would assume that he'll I don't know how much you can trust Frazier. He was pretty banged up last year. And I think McNeil is a baseball player. You know, I think he's just good, Tom. Frazier was actually much better than I thought last year. So I will say that like at this point is fine. He is just five. That's just the Mets a they've just fine. Everything about the Mets is just like kid in the Mets. I don't like. But no like I like Pete Alonzo's. Not just fine. No, no, no. We talk about the veterans on his team. Canot kudos. Really good. How are you? Why are you going to Trask namesake of their page? Dave, no, no twenty nineteen nine is twenty nineteen connotes great.

This is already. They care. He no, he's totally. You're a Mets fan. Build your team. Go get a good baseball player. Give your fans at entertaining product in next season..

"Young it just that nobody could recognize. It because he. Didn't have the wins and losses zero was run higher but higher but he. Was still, a good year you never know how that goes to we are to and here's the other. Thing we haven't gotten into the Mets defense is dreadful so yeah his e. r., b. have lower if he actually had. Guys who knew how to play defense and that's the ability he's had overcome a lot not just the lack of scoring but the the defense have popped up. I think it was two starts ago. Where Jose Batista misplayed a ball in, right field and and cost Nares which, our, Kevin Garnett of the New York, Post how bigger picture here with Jacob. Degrom we know at the all star break, his agent came pretty close to saying hey extend this guy or trade him Do you think that this kind of losing despite how well degrom has pledged and as well as he has. Handled it publicly privately as far as. We know do you think this affects, his future with the New York Mets, absolutely, not I think and also the Him. Trade I'm saying that that's a plastic agent move very close? To? Guam. I, I know. People around them If the Mets and, you know if the Mets turned. Around the. Farro and offered him a five year deal at a decent number. He, would sign it at me Wants. To he wants to five year deal he would. Love to, say here in old thanks to. The fact that Mets train not too far. From his home in. Florida he's basically Florida did lows that lifestyle loves this you, know he loves being around the Mets he doesn't like the results of the Mets. Like you said today nobody likes to be being here like losing and we struggled but there's no doubt by the, only way the Mets don't sign Grind it could happen but the only way. They don't find him. Longtime is if they mess it up he wants to sign, here I wrote a column I was checking back I tell him Before spring training two thousand fifteen I sat down with Jacob before to camp opened up and I wrote a column advocating. The Mets signed him at that point I could see how good he was as. The Mets have listen to me back then they had a bargain underhand because you wouldn't even be these numbers we're talking about now and they, would have had. Them to thirty five or whatever and he's the kind of guy with that body, and with his pitch ability. And understanding how to, even if he declines. A little bit I think you'll, still be as successful pitcher all the way through I don't see him as. A kind of data breakdown is a very athletic he's he's long? Softball and, and and the. Things he's done this year getting on top of the, ball you haven't heard any place any type of issues with his arm. And that's a that's a credit to island and Calloway even though we all know that everybody wants to make Mickey Callaway up in yada every night because. That's how Mets fans are another so I buried some fans are extremely frustrated overall. But I do want to stick with the grandma on one more with you what if the Mets don't go to him within extension here Like, he doesn't strike me as a kind of guy who's going to. Hold out and, and make a big deal but he'd absolutely I think he'd had some of the fans on his side if he were to do that knowing how great he has been. In the kind of competitor he is how what, would happen in that case if the Mets decide hey we don't want to. Extend a pitcher until he's thirty six thirty seven years old Yeah I think the Mets don't expensive I think. They're playing with fire this is an organization I can't afford to play with fire and they, they have very few good things going. At this point and right. Now Jacob degrom is the best thing, going to me it's an absolute no brainer to get. This done at some point. And it would. Be for, me would, be the beginning of changing the tune changing the story and getting past, this year frustration and having a guy like, degrom signed and that's the first. Step for, the future where you know..
