"Senate so i just didn't the it. There's a long path. If there's a path at all to changing the filibuster our guys will obviously come back to this. But now to weather overnight hurricane nicholas made landfall long texas coastline. The storm was downgraded to a tropical storm about an hour ago but there is still major concern over flooding. Let's go to meteorologist bill. Karen's for the latest on this bill. Amiga pretty incredible that now. We've had nineteen storms make landfall in the last seventeen months and that includes ten hurricane. So just you know. It's a storm at store. Winter storm once we get into these hurricane seasons and this one did attempt by right up to landfall ninety five mph winds were recorded on the texas goes gorda and this will actually have a storm surge probably four to five feet maximums and not enough to do a ton of damage but we still have over three hundred thousand people without power right now so let me show you. The latest from the hurricane center storm is almost over the top of houston right now. We were very afraid of the heavy rainfall in houston area especially this morning but the storm shifted a little bit more to the east and unfortunately for louisiana that means all of the heavy rain is now heading towards you as we go throughout the next two to three days the least thing that louisiana needs because they have been by four hit the hardest over the last two hurricane seasons so we have flash flood warning south of houston around galveston this morning but the flash flood watch includes almost all of southern half louisiana into southern mississippi and even alabama now about ten million people included and look at the rainfall. That's heading for new orleans. We're expecting up to ten inches of rain possible from late. Charlton area all the way over to new orleans and eventually some of that heavy rains in southern mississippi and even alabama. This is going to be pretty incredible over the next couple of days as we watch the storm slowly drift towards the new orleans area. It does not look like any problems whatsoever with the wins in these areas. The winds have been pretty light as we've been going throughout the last thing. I'd say the last twelve hours or so. They've been very light in areas especially of louisiana lake. Charles twenty mile per hour gusts to highest gus. Right now. we're near the houston area. Route forty to fifty miles per hour most of the power outage up from houston southwards. Down to the coast. Leary's i do not expect a lot of additional power outages as we go throughout the remainder of the storm and you can see on the latest close in radar. The houston area the heaviest rain. You're going to get over the next hour or two. But make the poor people from lake charles de beaumont it is gonna pour all morning long. Be very careful. Driving anywhere on interstate ten through louisiana during the day today so just ridiculous. Mika the tenth hurricane landfall in the last seventeen months in the united states crazy. all right bill karen. Thank you so much for keeping us posted on all of this and still add on morning. Joe a look at how security is being ramped.

"Of recover after that but it seems like just from a field standpoint that he's like this season vet on a rotation with with tons of others but he's kind of the young buck right now even john gannon emma pretty similar in age of visiting with zak silver. Mlb dot com cardinals beat writer. I wonder zack. And and in a very very small sample size given His his walk rate and is is numbers in terms of just his efficiency. Right now are the best. They've been in his career and again granted. It's been five starts and just under thirty innings. But you know i i. It's gotta be something to that. We hear guys talk about it all the time. Adam wainwright has talked about it like that. If you're a two one two ahead of a guy. You don't always need to try to get the punch out. That's where i think. Carlos would sometimes get into trouble especially early in games. And i don't think he's going to become you. Know dakota hudson sinker ball sinker ball sinker ball ground ball. Ground ball ground ball. But i do think there's something to be said for his stuff and the economy of pitches and using his stuff in an efficient way to get the most out of him every time he's out there. Yeah that's kind of why he's been able to sort of come back after all the all his strike that he's gone through his his his resume of of stock sinker. Is the crate pitch. When it's working well it hasn't seen movement it gets in on guys hands and it just induces a lot of we content Contact you can still wrap it up when he needs to one at that with bryce harper last night we had him three two and then he blows a ninety. Five mph fastball high. And by him so carlos the pitcher still a lot left in the tank. It's kind of finding that consistency. And not letting some of those blow up innings that have kind of plagued him throughout the start of the season occur. And you saw that sort of starting to turn last night..

"You can just be legit and just be left behind like if you just can't go out there and pitch like obviously, that seems obvious, but. There are way more players. Who if you really think hard to like? Hey, what happened to that guy? Whatever that guy? What happened to that guy? They just had a bad year, too, whether it's for injuries or performance, and they're just like you never hear from them again. They just like slip off into the wilderness like an old dog, you know. And dog. Yeah gotta find a place to. Go to sleep but. Brian Shaw. How does that happen? The do throws. A ninety five mph cutter. All that. Has You know what I mean? And then suddenly he's not coaching well same thing with Blake train remember him. He's still in the big east. He's with the dodgers now, but he had like. A one point eight year as season right, we had that breakout season destroy ninety seven mph insane singers. And the next year he like a five year right last year like a five year. You had a rough season. And if thing, a little something, a little soft, like maybe a little nagging injury. Guy Goes into three hundred to two fifty. Little nagging injury or just like something's wrong you over Mavin three are eight to a five, and suddenly your whole career is in jeopardy essentially. It's really it's a lot more. BIGLY! Careers are much more fragile than I think. People realize because you kinda stand his tate ten to stay focused on the big names like the Chicago where you're like. There's fixtures in the lineup, right? And then you resort for Space Kris Bryant. Always they're like you have your guys that make. His team seemed like. The team is always moving forward. But how many guys have just been like? They're just not there anymore. Right Arisen memory. They're just gone and you're like Oh. Yeah! What happened him? He was he was good. He was integral. In the next year, not even part of it right right. It's It's much more fickle and fleeting than people realize and every time I see a big name like that where it's like Oh, yeah! Like Derek? Lee was I think one of the best ones Derek Lee. was like a all star household name until he wasn't and then he was gone from like one was like all star household name two years later, being gone, a raised her memory newsworthy directly go. The, Orioles. Place anyone the creator goes to die. Let's with my hair all down. Yeah, those Myra! Brian Shaw's interesting one. I have a question for you about this. He was with Colorado correct So I, know you ask go ahead. Will there ever be a successful pitcher? In Colorado like a hall of fame caliber picture that had plays his career in Colorado I. Mean I just looked up the hall of famers from Colorado Rockies and there's only one. And it was this. What I thought you were GonNa ask me was did was his cutter negatively affected by the thinner air of Colorado. And I immediately thought about that as well, but then they said they ran his numbers, and he pitched better in Colorado than you do open road. So so maybe there, but that's not a now. The variables are. I don't know interesting. Like the best, Colorado Kit striker member of recent memory was Baldo Jimenez. As, he was also an all star legend than got paid, and then was done being good also Fran. Is it also to the Orioles Young? As I'm looking through interesting trivia. Question for you about the hall of fame. So what team is cy youngs? Cap in the hall of fame. The Cincinnati Barn burners I don't know. It is the Cleveland spiders. I did not know that was a team. But after you left after he left in eighteen, Ninety Eight, they went twenty, one thirty four. and. They folded, so he essentially full of the deal. By leaving, yes, not a deal. Greg Holland another good one. Connor prestage mentioned that great, Hamas the all star the royals right, and then just like. Got Tommy John I think. And then. He's been struggling. Get back I know. Is that the rockies now brochure? But I mean I just thought I. Don't know if you're ever GonNa see a guy that plays his whole career. And whereas rockies captains. into the hall of fame, it's it's impossible. What about Larry Walker? But he but he's a hitter. PITCHER A. Yeah. It'd be, it'd be tough. New Park adjusted probably and then V V one. This is one of the reasons that people I know. There's there's some haters to the new stats and stuff, but fifth and adjusting for for the park is important a good factor so fielding independent pitching. Is the three true outcomes, so walks strikeouts in homers allowed, and they predict pretty well actually what your Yari would end up being. An also control for ballpark variables to. So! Fills wild. Bill's mild. There's going to be like your career. Just takes a nosedive while and you see this I mean. There's a lot of variables of play that people don't think about and I'll give you know. Give me an example. Of Camden in the Atlantic League. We were not great like we were bottom of the barrel. But and part of this was that we had a a good second baseman who had no range? It was also lazy and I like him. He's a good dude, but. I mean he would have to admit what he was. That point to which is just like on my show up and play, and that's it no matter shape whatever our shortstop was good, but he was older and didn't have the range of some of these other guys and the Atlantic. League one of the most premium players on each team is the shortstop and I mean that the sense that. they tended to pay their shortstop Sunday. We'll get there like big league shortstops on a bunch of Atlantic teams right. And so. Pitching you for my team their balls that they like off the bat. You're like Oh play. Oh, that's a single. That went to the outfield. L. O.. Them then you go on the road and you play some of these other teams that have like a AAA baseman and a AAA shortstop and a double a third baseman. And no grandma's leave the infield. They all get gobbled up now. My my buddy, Matt Alinsky, who puts for Somerset for like three or four years and Matt's very accomplished. Great, pitcher. I just watched him because he was bitching against us and..

"ninety five mph" Discussed on The Morning Brushback with Dan Blewett

"There's not any that I know major league organizations that teach what I teach you know one of the one of the organizations the that does a good job with at least they have a good tracker for developing hitters as the dodgers. Have you watched a lot of those guys? The younger guys Gavin locks is a guy that's from the from this area that I'm from Chicago Southern Wisconsin area in. Do you see a lot of those guys. Bellinger won the MVP Jack Jack. Peterson's got a lot of power that Justin Turner. There's a lot of guys at that. Are Good established big leaguers? I WANNA change my statement as one organization teaching. Let us whether it's my stuff or whether it's walbrook stuff it's the dodgers a cody bellinger's amazing so is He's now red SOx What's his name John Beds almost bets No the guy that went to the socks as a jock. Alex okay. Either way I have experienced with Jack Peterson. He he does things really well. You got a kick out of him in the home run. Derby so consistently snapping his barrel But yeah it's it's a slow process and the Jeff Group the exes. I think there are a little put off by the major league organizations hiring people off Twitter. I I agree with that are on twitter but I'm not going to work for a major organization. Here's why didn't you offer yourself to one I would. I would be a consultant. I won't be hired person. Here's why first of all if I'm hired to say be coordinator every if they don't let me bring my people with me it's GonNa be a mess. Every organization have a guy teaching something different than what I teach we. Let's don't start able double a triple a rookie. If there's a guy teaching something different. Let's don't start my value would be as Nicole as a consultant would be to helping organizations who have spent some money on a player. A first rounder second round or whatever. They spent some money on him and he's not performed joining over to me. Let me see if I can get him to work out a lot of case by basis. Yeah and that's a good point because you know being in the minor leagues the the hitting coaches that I have. We didn't talk a whole lot of mechanics and urine. Spring Training and spring. Training is really not the time to learn mechanics spring training time to to try and get yourself in a A consistent successful position And to perform trying to win a job in spring training. It's not A. It's not a time to go there a little bit out of shape or maybe not were were. You need work on your swinging kind of need to hit the ground running So those guys up and down hitting coaches at all levels that I had they were all former players and they were all communicating. How to hit what to look for how to prepare yourself and we didn't talk mechanics all that much even if we asked like even if I asked you I fell off and I said you know Denny hocking was a guy had us a thirteen thing at thirteen parts of thirteen years in the Big Leagues. Nine full seasons As a utility Guy Great Guy Great hidden coach. A guy you bounce ideas off of gives you what. He thought what he worked for him. What he thought would work he would talk a little bit of mechanics but to make an overhaul swing change or something even start a spring. Training just wasn't realistic. And it wasn't a you know like you said the guys that needs specific calculated changes in their swing. Maybe they're high rounders. Our big investments. Those guys would need something. I think. More of what you're offering than than kind of what the X. Ball players and I understand where they're coming from our shouting from the rooftops that players want input from guys play that have been that level can take them to that level or given the information that they don't currently have about the level they're trying to get to and there's a wave of How do I say you mentioned mechanics are never taught or never talk about spring training? They just helped you try to hit with what your mechanics were now. There's a wave of. There is a better mechanic not into big league jet. But it's coming up. You can see the talk. It's growing. It's percolating some day and pay. Joel says when todays nine year olds are major. Leaguers will be adopted and accept Russian statement. Richard Looking into the future. Nobody I like it. I mean at the end of the day you have to own whatever it is that you teach and clearly do that. How do you feel that change? Come about with people leader Amateur Baseball amateurs getting better and better and undeniably better. And they're gonNA get drafted and it's just it's going to start at the grassroots and it's going to grow and it's going to grow and more and more and more people are going to be doing what we teach and eventually it's GonNa take over and then when those guys that have experienced start talking approach and this guy now has hit on a swing that allows him more time to execute his approach. Then we can keep up with the changes that are being made in pitching the velocity and the pitch design the tunneling we can keep up with their richler. The one guy that the one. That's got a big platform. Alex Rodriguez you know He. He demonstrates in talks about hitting talks about swinging down A. I agree with him that the bat does go down like use centrally swing down but the way he demonstrates it is is to go directly down to the ball kind of meat it at one point where. That's not exactly what's happening and I think that's a lot of the disconnect. Alex Rodriguez you know for my money. If Alex Rodriguez in the room he is the most knowledgeable hitting guy. Like I'm going to listen to him. His his words carry a lot more weight than everybody else in the room. Pretty much because of the success that he had but everything he's saying might not mere what he was doing. No how do you feel about the the swing down? And the an how big leaguers guys these experts guys like a rod and even Jeff. Frye are verbalizing swing. And what can what can people take from what they're saying And apply themselves. They can take everything they take except they have to do it from one leg When when when you see Albert rules on MLB network or a ride or chipper or Jim Jomie or any of these ex major leaguers showing their teeth swings and their workouts and how they're swinging basically aid to be straight down to the ball off the teat but yet you put them in a game and they don't do that. So where is the disconnect years ago? I stopped listening to Major League players and started watching my effort to duplicate Barry Bonds. I didn't give a shit what he said. I was going to try to duplicate what I saw in the process of doing that. I figured some things out they create quicks. Okay so fast forward several years then. I started trying to reconcile their words with their actions. And it's real obvious that I can swing down from one way and by the time my front foot hits the ground my barrels going up but if I swing down after I've waited my front leg. My barrel stays down so it is my belief that what they teach with the swing down part of what they teach the upper body part what they teach aspire but Albert and Berry and manny or Albert and Chipper and guys demonstrate a-rod demonstrating on. Mlb Net have no clue that they swung one like and if I asked them use link from one leg or two they would say to because they don't even understand they don't have any they've never even contemplated are they swinging from their back leg or are they swinging after their weight shifts to their front and when you swing down from your back leg and let the weight shift as you swing. Your barrel will go up through the ball. If you swing down after you landed your front foot. Your barrel will stay down. It sounds sounds a little bit like a Watch while you're watching these guys. What they're saying is necessarily mirroring what they did but is more of a feel we talk a lot about feel and I feel is important. It's like when they were thinking and feeling when you and the game the speed of the game and the readiness they have to have to hit that ninety five MPH fastball their body gets into a completely different load position than it does off the team. When they're hitting off the tee and swinging down there. They're getting a feel if they want to have with their upper body with their hands and every time they shift their weight I than swings showed their weight. I in swing. But when they get into game the game itself causes them with unbeknownst to them mostly in my belief to get into a position a one legged back stretched because they know. The challenge at hand requires quickness and when they swing from in a game they get a different looking result then when they swung from their batting practice or they're T- position which didn't require quick. Looks right a lot of these on twitter Dandy Gentleman? I'm bickering with someone on Youtube about coaching terminology. So there's a guy saying he says that the concept of rubber band can become problematic and the words should instead be used because the word rubberband will cause an arm bar. Do you any comment on us. I'm my I'm defending you in saying one defending everyone in the world and saying that they're just words rubberband spraying. They're just words. I use them both. I have a demo that I use that I call the spring. I used rubber band a lot. I use a bow and Arrow. Allot a you slingshot. Swimming Swami's sloppy sleepy's San Sam Samsonite Samson. If I have ten people standing in here and I say the same thing all ten them. I'm likely to get ten different interpretations and so I'm always looking for a different way of saying the same thing I think. The guy's looney. There's some difference in the spring and rubber band. Well it's an interesting debate. And he people talk about this on twitter. I remember. Trevor. Bauer saying that if you teach a curve ball by saying like chop down with it then you're an idiot and it's like I've thought a lot of kids a lot of curve balls and I sometimes say that and a lot of kids have really good curve balls. Here's it's just. It's just a way of helping them understand the motion. Here's a real good example. You alluded to it earlier. And I meant to touch Justin Turner at his swing change. He had been he had been thinking. Stay back let the ballgame deep Blah Blah. Blah is unbelievable. Change came when he tried to hit the ball out front. Okay and yet. I'm one of the guys is going to tell you to let the ball get the. So what's the? How do you reconcile that? If a guy is too far back out front going to make sense if a guy's too far out front staying back is going to make sense to or it's going to help you understand. Really the words you use of different meaning from from the spot. You hear them from. If I'm if I'm staying back and spinning getting forward is GonNa help me if I'm getting forward and pulling off balls enrolling over balls. Staying back is going to help. Yeah may sounds knees. The context yeah. That's definitely I think that explanation right. There is a lot of a lot of what hitting twitter is is guys are trying to give absolutes to hitters and not everything works for everybody just based on how you say it you know. If you've got a kid who's consistently you know an hour late on fastballs. Sometimes you have to tell them. Look try and hit the ball on the in the poolside dugout. And that's not necessarily like an absolute teaching point that you want every kid to do but he needs to hear that similar to what just the needed to hear from Addity hit with Wallenberg. I'm not sure WHO JUSTIN DOUG. So whatever doug is part of being good at relaying information is to is to have you know three or four different ways or ten different ways to explain what you want them to do and what it should look like in your head. I sometimes in order to get people to understand how the HIP has to work around the ball femur instead of oil back to unload forward has to kind of role. I'm oftentimes asking my new hitters. Were just starting trying to learn what I teach. They hit a pop up to the right. I don't want to be hit a pop up to pitcher in a game but in order to get them to get their hip sockets to rule properly over the ball the FEMUR. I asked him to hit up.

"ninety five mph" Discussed on Section 138

"You know what I think is actually the funniest part. Would your situation is that in. Twenty fifteen when Donaldson type. The game over was the one that wasn't able to get the ball is just blew fly and then orders on that plunged out. Teesta after the the year out of the bathroom and then in twenty twenty sixteen. Lds Oduor was actually the one that was responsible for the error that caused Donaldson to score-settling. Doing just bad luck. Charter them yet. At the end of the day Just because do different teams now. They're still it was going to be that that hatred for Metaphor. But you know we've moved on an absurd. They moved on and yet every true. I mean in terms of teams. Yeah nobody likes them so it's fine but he's regressing himself He's not as productive as you used to be. So who knows how many years he has left in the League but I sure Miss Jose Bautisita. No matter how good or bad he was near the end of it and he also spoke a little bit about his you know his recent the the videos circulating of him pitching and if he would come back as a two dimensional player he of course he said on the livestream that he would and of course he still wants to play in. The field is something that He made sure that was clear to everybody that he still wants to play. In of course he said before the What was going on with the Kobe? Nineteen his original goal was to play for the Dominican team and play the Tokyo Olympics. So that would have been something that would have been really cool and I guess there's still a chance. He can come back as a pitcher but he did say he has no plans right now but he hasn't retired he still in shape. So it'll be interesting to see if he gets another shot in the future and what I just watching Jose. Bautisa talk something. I don't know if I just forgot. This never really realizes he's I don't know if he's just well-spoken or release smart but something about him is just so great to hear him talk. He was talking about Facing Sam Dyson on the mound for his. Of course something home run and how he knew you was a sinker pitcher and he knew what he was looking for any new in. It's like two or three previous at bat against him dyson. He had kind of let the ball to deepen the zone so this time he was looking to get out in front of it and make sure that he talked about how the ball fell against the bat and like hitting against him dyson. It usually felt like you were hitting a metal ball and he wanted it to feel asked him a question about clutch hitting and what he thinks that he or clutch hitting doesn't really exist and Jose Bautista was like well. I haven't read the study and I don't know what they're saying so he was really. I don't know he's just seems like really smart guy. I don't know if I forgot that. But he's man I miss him. Yeah he definitely will. He was always. He's always been a well-spoken character. The only thing that can probably give him a little bit of slack for would be of course two thousand sixteen spring training when he opened up pitchers and catchers report saying he wanted one hundred and fifty million dollars Definitely not a smooth way to start the season. And I'm sure fans Kinda got a little nervous at the beginning. And of course at the time it was before the injury plagued season for him that year and his downfall from there. But you know heading into that moment. He was you know the clutch player on the team along. Donaldson encarnacion that one-two-three Punch on the The batting order and Yeah other than that. Nothing but respect pros about of course in what he did for the organization. Even before the team was good he was at one. You always wanted to see a pitch and I'm talking to even way before two thousand twelve when there was still the Black Jays. Just remember him making reel plays consistently hitting home runs and he was definitely that. Oh that one figure that always was you know people always wanted to watch but other than that moment in spring training I think everything went well for Jose Bautista hair and of course you wish nothing but the best. I guess you hope you see him again. One day. No matter fits on the mound. Or if he's playing in the outfield like he's most comfortable within worth what he enjoys most but Yeah seeing this question going around a lot on on twitter. One very specific thing like for me. I think it's like when someone hits a home. Run A moment where you jump out of your seat and at least for me. I'm like super excited and watching the ball but I'm not sure if it's going to go out so you can have that moment of like doubt in your mind whether it's actually going out. But at the same time massive excite benefit going out then goes out and it's just sort of a relief and you celebrate with the people around you in the stands that is something that I miss a lot about baseball. So along those lines. What is something else you Miss About Baseball? Something very specific about the game. The ones civic thing for me is when the baseball hits the CATCHER's Mitt. I love that sound. When it's an ninety. Five MPH fastball. That's the one thing the one very specific thing I miss And it's very basic to say you just missed the sport in general I just and I also miss You know just going to games during buying practice. And seeing you know the sprinkler on the infielder people just getting the infield ready the grounds crew. It just it gets me excited for the game for some reason it always has so. I guess those are two specific things. Ms.

"ninety five mph" Discussed on RUN GPG Podcast

"Hit you know. Doing what snapchat did better. You know. taking facebook and making it quicker and easier on your mobile right Experiences experiences is better on instagram. At they didn't such a great job at one point I know in my head I was like. There's too much going on here but once you get used to it you're Kinda like okay you know I and get what they're doing now. It's like it's the one place where you can do almost everything you know the best. I mean about talking to minute corey question. Yeah I just want to say an and this is how I it seems like you're saying on top of mind and you mentioned you. I heard you talk about in a while back. You mentioned an acronym Toma can you explain that a little bit. Assess Toma Top of Mine Association. Just how to stay on top of people's minds the most and statistics and analytics saying that it takes between almost thirty thirty to forty times for someone to really remember you for who you are what you do. Who It is you do away with? What environment doing it life? You have to post thirty or forty times. We we have to send a mailer thirty to forty times. You have to send an email thirty or forty times for them to remember what it is that you do so ducks top of mine. Association Toma Being Constantly on People's minds when someone thinks real estate or do you think you don't have to think of that person you have to think that realtor or maybe it's not mortgage by the warrior when I personally think of real estate immediately go to Bravo. TV million dollar listing New York or maybe HDTV and homes and whatever else there are these shows and flick awesome flips and stuff. You know that's where my mind goes though. But that's where my mind goes a consumer and that's what we need to understand is how consumers think not how you you think you want to sell. You have to sell the way people want to buy. That's what I strongly believe in what you speak our language. It's interesting the greater property group. We you know we believe that the way that people shop real estate completely changed in the last couple of years the way they a real estate agent has totally changed the last two years. Big Time about you need. You need to be able to answer the question for me I mean this goes really relievers. Two things that changed everything in terms of really statements data technology right gave up. All all our data people no longer need to call the real estate on Omens were writing in with technology. I mean they could shop online a lot easier. There's all these ideas speeds. I mean we have multiple platforms worms multiple cities right. But you need to be able to articulate wants to be our unique selling proposition. And if you can't do that if you're just like you know if you're and Stewart you know here's my here's my bench with my phone number Nolan's calling you. Because they have no reason to right. So you have to actually be able to articulate. What's different about you That's that's a whole series of podcasts. At that really is you know I mean we sell hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of homes a year So billion dollars in real estate Over the years Weeks notice that we keep close analytics. Happy it's funny. Because the downward trend on commissions over the last five to ten years really staggering right. If you look at the commission's of real estate agents they've been they've been pushed down and the reason why is because agents are not able to articulate their value propositions of enough just not right so the only value proposition. You have to walk the average agent. I would say that doesn't know how to do. This is the only value proposition they have is cutting condition right in. It's a race to the bottom. Then it really is in everything is changing. That's why like companies like Amazon or getting into real estate like getting into it. Because they're able to articulate the unique selling proposition they go. Hey listen if you buy with one of our agents you know we'll give you up to. I think it was. What is it five thousand dollars Amazon credits or something like that? Sounds like that Yup Yup but but the point is the point is is there articulating. US PD because they know that's how people shop these days. Here's a good question. Here's the question. How did you begin to grow your personal Ursel Brandon instagram? And what did you do to grab attention to grow that millennial realtor tag but the question. Because I know I want to take this this whole venture off to meandered so many different times from one brand to another. I've rebranded itself about seven times. I never knew what I wants to be. But you know again going back to the hockey world. I always had a name. I was always abstracting. Tallest guy in the is the biggest one. The Guy that had a ninety five. MPH shot like dots. That was what I was known for. I scare the hell out of goalies. That was my thing and then all of a sudden I got injured and then hockey Lynn bye-bye and and so did my name and that sucked. That hurts so bad because of eighteen years of just constantly playing and playing and having such a name bowling somewhere and then all of a sudden saying don't at her. I needed to revive that name somehow. So that was cheap brand number one number two. I liked entrepreneurship. Got Into Business. I got into music was a DJ. At one point. It also is trying to figure out if I should be a DJ. Or how can I produce music and stuff you know. I learned that all but it wasn't for me and somehow always ended up going back to social media and branding myself and then rebranding it the branding and of brain and rebranding and so I started to realize that I like business. It's only focus on entrepreneurship and then of course with entrepreneurship. That's an umbrella of its own. You go into business ownership you can go into marketing advertising this that and so I was always trying trying different stuff however nothing ever clicked as much as it did with real estate. But that's because I had the most proof of concept with real estate I actually had leans that came from instagram and I closed them my first year over real estate and I said okay. I need to teach other people how to do this. Let me see if it continues to work though and then it got more and then I got listings and then I got okay. All right got it. Let me teach others how to do this and done. I started applying though the value that I've always applied to my business in real estate and I've shown it to others. Hey realtors out there. This is how you do that. This is how you get leads. I just the tips and tricks slowly but surely they could coming back and coming back and they brought their friends and you know here we are today where forty thousand plus followers as you know in an still growing a lot of the real estate professionals wanting to absorb my knowledge so now I know what my niches who am I. Target audiences announced feeding them so we can grow more and more and more. It's super cool. Let's get into some specifics. A little bit you covered all a post on your wall stories pretty consistently you doing I g live as we mentioned. You're doing July Ryan Sir Hints Night. Right is one of those that you find more productive than the other two or how do all three relate to the business marketing of real estate professional. You know what I mean is one. That's more important than the other for me I barely ever pushed him on wall anymore. Now like it's mainly stories. They get the most attention right. But it's weird because they're only for twenty four hours so can you talk on that. Yeah yeah absolutely. People love behind the scenes. People like to see what's going on behind all the luxury and all the sweetness that is out there and when they see that you're failing and they see that you're dirty and they see that you're actually like a real person not just someone that's covered in makeup and in front of the spotlight and looking good you know they connect with a few more they resonate with you they just click with you. And that's that's what you need your community to do is aiming to really be personable with you. I I love it when someone someone reaches out to me and they think not going to respond to them. They're like Ed. You're probably not gonna read this but you know figuring give it a shot and I responded with a video. The only they love it. You can't believe you're responded. I mean listen. You're you're shooting yourself in the foot if you don't communicate Medicaid with your community and the best way to go about is through instagram stories because people are looking at that stuff anyway. If if you're actually posting entertaining stuff were valuable stuff on your story. People will always click that little circle on your head and they will watch that story because they're expecting something either funny or humorous or entertaining -taining valuable to pop up and when it does once twice three times four times. Your little bubble is going to constantly pop up on there. I like three or four INSTAGRAM's stories that they see because they're always clipping on your thing an instagram algorithm realizes that. Oh you like that person's Instagram's stories we're I'M GONNA keep pushing them instead of your two hundred thousand other people that you're following we're GONNA put their story I for you but you like their stuff and it's GonNa Bring you back into instagram program. which is the platform? And that's one of those algorithms right. That's the science behind algorithm of instagram. Every time it's it's you know normal thing we want people to come back into into our into our software into our website into our hub. And that's Instagram for you instagram. Says how can we still real in our users more and more into instagram. What is I wanNA make them tap on our logo and our icons of log back into instagram? We'll obviously love this guy's instagram stories. Let's push in order to the front so every time they log log into the sea it so like there's so much science behind instagram. But it all makes sense and my warm storage sort of this whole blabbering is that yes. INSTAGRAM story is very very behind the scenes when people can really connect with it more than they see the pictures on the feed or anything else so. I prefer instagram stories for short. I'm glad you understand the algorithm at years to understand. I'm still not an expert but I get a lot a lot more than that. The the changing. Yeah it's the instagram edge rhythm. They're changing the name. 'cause I don't understand the algorithm at all. You know whatever I I I think you're right. I think there is something to do. I was full proximity as well. You don't tracks proximity as well as the stories you might follow. I don't know five hundred people. Why so you know? There's I five three. Yeah there's there's something to do with that as well so yeah I think all of that stuff will would know better. Corey is youtube train. Corey Tala will one. Before I went there David to second..

"Hundred flowers dot com Twitter feed. Cohen, ESPN, and the infancy SPN like this one house Chisholm talking about the workplace violence that was thrown out there by the unpire when Manny Machado was suspended for one game for arguing or call third strike, and it was a little bit of a bump in the pliers, as saying the pirates sociation saying there's no place, workplace violence, Harris sets. I like how the empire's acclaiming workplace violence when they referee a game replace. Actually police themselves by throwing ninety five mph fastballs at other players when deemed necessary to send a message, that's only half a league though. Maybe the National League does they throw guys. Yeah. But those pictures don't have to come up and face. Another guy with the possibility of wearing one because they had another guy where one that they threw but they're still doing a guys. But let's be honest. Right. Like, the, the NFL, you Hugh have a guy where one you have to stride, the plate, as well, my friend, or the chance of ood. That hers it's still wearing. I don't care if you're a pitcher or some ability to whatever that is they're throwing people in the American League. Going back to his point though. That whole it's so Billy dick euless and posted on a Facebook page, that just makes my I mean it's like fingernails on a chalkboard. I it's absurd in again. Joe Torry kudos, ignore it move on. If you're going to have stones make public spectacle out of it, but, you know why they didn't do that because they knew the out the backlash outcry gonna come back at them. That's why they did that kind of way out by using a Facebook post to try to get this silly messes across when it comes to workplace violence. And yes, I put a year, quote, in air quotes, exactly.

I know it's in your like dressed to the nines again. Guys in this Danny did he not come in like dressed all nice yesterday? You complimented and he comes in today and it's really like expensive. Drescher looks good. One thing I expect from Pat is to be dressed. Well, he's a very good dresser funded with a common. I've Abe was you have a different code every day. The Mel, the you're the, the Marcos of coats. Yes. Like eight thousand vests and like got my golf coats looks. Bearish. He handled you saying it on the air lot calmer than he did off the he didn't quite your head off, like he did. But it's Showtime, he said camp you have more coats than anyone. I know. And you go, I'm not asking you to buy. That's true. No. Danny chimed in all said, was I didn't ask you guys to pay for now, you'd say like that. You were you were little crusty for no shot, no shot. Anyway. Three one two, three three, two, three seven seven six our phone ever, did you watch baseball in Chicago last night? Because on the south side of this great city, we had more rain, let me just paint this picture for you. We had the end of the suspended game over at NBC sports Gago. And then we had the second game. So the chances that I was going to do sports. Clive were slim to none. Unless it's raining. So I'm like, you know what? I'm gonna go for a long walk like a five mile walk just get extra steps in. I'd already worked out, like outdoors you were gonna go for a walk. I did walk from over by where we work by the mart. Yeah. Down Michigan avenue all the way down by oak street. I'm all over the place. And fricking skies opened up like you've got to be kidding me. I gotta get back. We may get rained out. I may be on and get back watch y'all Mer Sanchez win game one with a base. The basis loaded and then via Alito starts game, too, and gives up a three run home or Alex. Gordon. I'm like, oh boy, I, I'm all in Lucas deleo. He looks great. But did you hear what happened? He didn't realize the game was going to start thirty to forty minutes after the first one is over so that happen. I mean somebody dropped the ball in the SOX clubhouse. He has also assume responsibility. I mean you don't nobody walks up to the starting pitcher and says, oh, by the way, you know, it's not seven ten it's six forty. So he only got ten minutes, right? So that's probably why got up to the rocky start. Correct. But by the way, he will be on this show tomorrow at eleven. So are you putting the fact that he didn't know the start of the the the baseball game that he was pitching in? Are you putting that on him or on somebody on him? He's a mature gentleman. He's a man making good money to play professional baseball. He should know. You don't know what time your show starts from night tonight and producer. No, no, no, no. I know you don't go five follow you. They say cap, stop your walk. He's the bad signal. Get over here, I go to coop. And I say what time are we on tonight? It's now at five thirty. Okay. Great. So I start preparing five twenty eight. I stumbled into the studio we get it done. It's we I feel like cap, you're getting lost in the sauce here, though, even though he didn't know he went out and had a great performance. Something that kind of the fact that he messed up the timing of his. So he righted the ship and never gave up gun. That was great. It's pretty good great. So he looks really, really good velocity is up, particularly sitting I mean sitting at ninety five. How about his may, okay? Five and six starts a one seven four ERA for Lucas g Lido forty six strikeouts. In only ten walks, you want to hear what he was last. May two and three in those six starts an ERA north of seven nineteen ks and sixty six I'm sorry in sixteen walks. So he's completely flipped. The script employees from the worst pitcher in major league baseball of those qualified to now atop ten pitcher in major league baseball. Okay. He figured some things out. Yes. So, again, just letting everyone know he is confirmed for eleven AM tomorrow on this show. So looking forward to talking to him. But yes it is his responsibility to know when has started just saying if the game gets moved up by thirty to forty minutes because the first game I would someone should walk by over. By the way, Lucas you realize games. The day before they announced you don't know you don't because everything was hinging on the finishing up the Memorial Day games yesterday. Tomorrow's game will start thirty minutes after the conclusion of the suspended game. I'm just gonna walk up by Staal and give it a little gentle reminder. That bullpen. I mean, there's how many people are in on his pre-game prep. And I would bet because I know again, I haven't covered the White Sox day to day in their room. But I can tell you at the cubs clubhouse, there is a board, and it says, which jersey, they're wearing because they got the alternates. Boo jersey great top first pitch one twenty and then it says batting practice pitchers, nine AM, so and so's here and they listed it's all there. Now, do they need Otis or VJ in the cubs? Cubs eight-pack, if you read the board. Guess what? Here's when you're hitting what uniform, you're wearing the come on, man. They got to got to be able to take a little response. You talked to Lucas tomorrow, but he's sleeping right now. It's getting rats. Correct. He's a sleeper he likes to sleep late. God bless him. You know, Kris Bryant said to me, one day, I said, hey, Chris going to get you on the show. He's like shows really early, and he ended up doing it and I said, I'm to new with time you're sleeping. He said he and his wife go to bed every night after night game at three AM. Three AM. He's like you gotta understand something. He said, I get up. I eat something I go to the park, it's three o'clock. I go through my entire routine, which takes two three hours. I play I come home. I'm not tired yet. And I haven't eaten. So now we have dinner, we sit. I watch TV we t- DVR shows, he goes by three o'clock. I'm tired, I sleep 'til like noon. I get a good night's sleep. I get up. I do it again. He goes, just because you get up at four AM doesn't mean I'm getting up early. And I get it in a bunch of players have said to me to we sleep late because we play late we can't eat right as we walk off the field. I get it. It's a different lifestyle. So by the way, speaking of pitching on the south side, you saw the ceremonial first pitch. I did from a White Sox staffer. Correct. Her name is being held hundreds of the witness protection program. Correct. She is the employee of the month for Lee restaurants. Okay. And if you haven't seen it do yourself quick. Search trending on Twitter or Google makes Gary della bots as throw from the Howard Stern show. Look spectacular makes fifty cent look like a hall of fame pitcher. She took out the photographer who was standing to her immediate left, maybe twenty five feet away. Not no ninety twenty five feet about twelve feet away rules. Click the camera which saved him, I think it was fake polling was set. That was fake she'd be making a victory lap today, she had been on WGN's morning show on TV. She'd have been on all the she'd be doing windy city live. You wanna know why? I think it's fake first of all, she nails him perfectly. It's a perfect throw right at the cameraman, but here's a second reason if somebody's the employee of the month, and they're getting the honor to go out there and throw the ceremonial first pitch. And they accidentally whip it at the cameraman and hit him in the face. They feel guilty. She's got a big smile, and she's laughing. The do that was catching her. I'm sorry. I can't remember the players named because according to the boss, I can't name six White Sox players, but he's smiling and laughing, there's no remorse. They don't feel bad like whoa. Oh my God. I'm so sorry. It slipped. They're all loving it like they're in on the prank. Well, it's funny, why whatever more miles an hour. A ninety five mph beam ball could break a camera that costs hundreds of dollars, and she's the employee of the month. It was a soft hawse come on. You do not believe it. I'm not making that up. Then why would they be protecting her name? And why would she be towing? Spiracy Laden human being. I know skeptic, I'm a skeptic. And I believe that the White Sox had more to gain by that happening. Then it not have really wanted center times, when's the last time no fence to the south side. But when's the last time honestly anything White Sox made a top ten player? They did Brooks Boyer and everybody on room. They said, all right. How are we gonna get on Scott van pelt show? Can we get it for taking our second straight over Kansas City? Now, now, let's do it this way. Let's get our employee of the month out there. Let's have her throw directly to her left and being the photographers taking a picture of her then let's hold her name back and not let her do any interviews. Come on adding to the intrigue. Tony the minor league teams do like Seinfeld night to get the PR speaking of conspiracy to see what your boy, Joe Madden's had to say down at minute maid last night after the game. But the ball flying out of the ballpark and all of that. I will I mean that it is flying out of minute maid park like little flares are going. But I'm amazed. Nobody says a word when the blowing out of the south blowing north northeast and a ball flying into the basket. And nobody says a word about it. Wrigley with blowing get Jetstream. It's gone. But in Houston, they're hitting our pitching like it's batting practice, and my God, heaven, forbid. So anyway day they wanna play fast game with you. I mean a name a player, I want you to tell me if he's a White Sox player or wolves player. You're doing this on the floor. Fly..

"Guy. Billy Cunningham, a great American market continues to meltdown right now down six hundred and ten points because of the tariff war with the communist red China bunch of commies heathens in eighth east or trying to take more than hundreds of billions of dollars every year way from us. We'll deal without about one o'clock today. Also after two o'clock is Lance mccullers good friend, Wayne Allyn root. But until then that same last McAllister and acute hearing, center dot com hotline, Lance McGowan, Stor welcome again to the Bill Cunningham show. Of course, I'm sitting here. I'm kind of a stats guy. You're a bit of a poet ideal with reality, you often do not I'm looking at your friend and mine, Joey Votto, who's thirty five years old should be in his prime when your friend and mine, Peter Edwin Rosas, thirty five what was nineteen Seventy-six. He kicked ass for the next ten or eleven years nonetheless, Joey Votto, thirty five years old so far this year, Joey Votto who used supporting love is batting two. Oh, six with an on base percentage of three twenty five. He's got thirty nine strikeouts. Which tells me Joey Votto goes on on pace for about one hundred and sixty strikeouts. He has a total of seven RBI with three home runs. In other words. He's the worst leadoff hitter in baseball. He'd be the worst second-place hitter in baseball. It'd be the worst third-place hitter in baseball and looking at his record is precipitous fall off from twenty seventeen when he had thirty six one hundred within. On base percentage of four fifty four which was really good. It was number one in the league. We're watching a precipitous decline and even the hall of Famer yesterday remarked that most gode gode hitters go up to the plate with the idea of hitting the baseball when I played baseball for Thomas funeral home. We would bury our opponents I played for Gordon veteran about it third. If there's a man on third less than one or two out. My goal was not to get a walk. My goal was the knockout runner in. So if a pitcher is thrown forwards is outside the plate, I want after the pitcher stone in the dirt I want after ever Petro's over my head. I want after if appeal was thrown at me, I still want after another words you got to be aggressive. The hall of Famer made the comment that he's never seen a power player like Joey Votto up at the plate while the goal of getting a walk. How's that possible? Will you continue to defend one, Joey Votto? Struggle. I mean, you know, we looked at April and kind of excused as April struggles. Because that traditionally is the is the month. He has the most issues. Traditionally in April, but he hasn't been great. But he to forty five and April take that now hitting a buck nineteen in the month of may in. It's showing no signs of getting better. And to your point of of how he looks to play. I I continue to say what he's doing the swings. He's delivering the delivering recognize I. Career. And I know what to enjoy looks like I I don't see that guy searching at times flailing at times lacking competence. I it's a it's a long list of striking out more than he ever has. He's looking at more strike did he ever had getting beat on fastballs? And because of that trying to make up for that eve. Now getting hold on breaking balls across the board a really troubling sign right now. And I know people will say, and I when I say there's people push back. Well, you know, you'll be fine. Because he's been finding the past last year admits was a failure his spring training was a struggle. And now April may has been a struggle. I'm sorry. Wecker doesn't he weighs? What is going on right now? Because track record has never included him doing this in his h thirty six season that he will turn thirty six in this season. You know, I know when I pitched for savior, we'd go over the other teams offensive production numbers and look for soft softness in weakness in someone else's game. Right now, the game is filled with analytics the other team has figured out what they can do is bust Joey Votto and ninety five mph fastballs in the inside part of the plate then through a hoax on the outside. And then he will not chase. He will not swing and he's waiting for two or three inch moving on the fastball and the inside corner. And when that happens, there's nothing you can do. And so what else? So I'm kind of a stats guy. The reds right now are eighteen and twenty three seven and a half games out of first place. If they sweep the cubs or in first place, Tuesday Wednesday, Thursday, the reds before and have games out of first place. You take away the eight games they lost eight of the first nine to begin the season. The reds have been I placed by four or five games. So are you? Optimistic or you pessimistic. I'm optimistic because you take away those eight games the reds are in first place. But if they sweep the cubs and take away those eight games now, they're really in first place. You know what I'm saying sample size here. And I can just tell you this Willie and their last thirty two they're seventeen and fifteen and I think that catches most people off guard. I think people get it. They look and say if I had a dime for everybody. Who said they're still whatever I say, they'll say they're still in land. That's factually true over the last month. Plus, it's a winning team. People don't want to. They don't realize that. But considering what they've been through in terms of playing on the road. They've played already this season. Fifteen thirty one games on the west coast or in Mexico. For fifteen games out, western Mexico. That's going to work the other way, they're going to play at home a lot more, which I think lends itself to more comfort at more often because they they could certainly hitting great American ballpark. But what he's maddening is the number of close losses in their last twelve losses. You ready for this? You ready? Over their last twelve losses. Here's their margin of defeat. One one two one one one one three two two one one there in all those games. They just can't find ways to win those Joey Votto, you gotta have the guy making the twenty five million dollars. Who's the offensive later that many said until last year was going to be in the hall of fame in two or three more years like the last three or four Kent not counting twenty eighteen the guys in the hall of fame. And so how's it possible? That the later the ball club is the worst leadoff hitter. He shouldn't be batting leadoff is no speed. He stationed station. He has what seven RBI this year seven. That's impossible. It's almost impossible to have seven RBI even leadoff hitters. Takeaway one at bat. Nobody's on that means it should have fifteen or twenty RBI didn't have. So he doesn't drive in runs. He strikes out a lot has no speed. And he's batting two. Oh, six why is he hitting? I I I think that's a very fair question. I I think first or second there'd be that's a fair question to ask. If if you're going to be driven and how you put your lineup together. It's time perhaps David Bill shift off the the big picture of career to what this moment is in the month of may has five hits. We've seen him with an Oprah five game at an Oprah seven-game. We've seen it three strikeout game yesterday. We saw a four strikeout game. He got hosed on the last one. We also saw a game. I think it was Thursday night last week where I've never seen it. He hit the ball on the ground of the first baseman three times. And he hit the ground ball on the ground of the second base. That's four groundouts to the right side in one game guarantee of that never happened in his career. And and and this is what people need to realize. And this comes from me, Joey Votto apologised, but Joey Votto through one fourth of this season. Twenty five percent in has done virtually nothing. He may do I think he's going to do something better the rest of the year. But the fact is he has punted the first fourth of this season when this team needed him. And that's just the reality of the situation is he a mental case. I don't know. I have no reason to believe that. I do think he over analyzes at the plate. Sometimes I think he is. So and in so focused in so methodical and how he coaches it. I believe sometimes eat does over that. How about this is on track to have one hundred sixty strikeouts and Twenty-eight RBI? How's that possible? We'll keep in mind is the product of opportunities. And if you're batting leadoff and your or your batting second. You're you're relying on your leadoff hitter. Or your pitcher your number nine number eight hundred getting on and they haven't gotten on a lot for him. So I it is wrapped up in that as I do he simply not making not making as much context and the context. I'll give you this. And this is troubling to me this year on fastballs hitting to sixty six two years ago when he should have won the MVP three thirty three on bass boats. You couldn't get a fastball passing. Fastball. He crushed this year. Well, let's use the Frank Robinson analogy is he an old thirty five. I think that's a fair question. I don't know. We don't know the answer to that. I think it's a fair question to ask. Well, what about Doris day? What are your memories of doors day? I have very limited memories. Well, don't you recall, the nineteen fifties and six I do I do remember there certainly was some faith in your life where you would have dated her. I'm assuming well, let's ask you this. Where is she from? I know she's from down. She was born in Avondale Doris day. I think objectively she's the greatest entertainment star ever to come out of Cincinnati because of her recording because of her movies because of her TV show. Would you agree? She had she was number one in the box office. She was number one at the top of the musical charts. She was number one in television. Now who's ever done that? I'm sorry. Jeff Henderson said Evanston. So I'm asking you now who was number one number one number one. Doors day, Doris day. And so you're not showing proper respect dead at the age of ninety seven you're not showing her respect. Lance McGowan Easter I'm going to work on that. I'm going to do a segment on her tonight. Heard of her. You know, who she is? I. Yeah. Where where she began her career at seven hundred. Wwl Bengo right here. Maybe twenty or thirty years you'll be number one of the box office number one recording number one TV show is that possible. Before me. Yes, unlikely very unlikely. Chart me out. Now, the reds have done. Twenty five percent of the season is Finney. It's over that means for the next seventy five percent of the season. They they're overweight all their statistics to get back in the game to Jerry vodka hit three hundred thirty home runs in one hundred RBI that's not possible. Because when twenty-five percent is done that's a chunk of the whole season. Now, I would say this no team in baseball has only had fifteen home games. Now. I don't count the two home games in Monterrey Mexico. I don't know how you can have a home game and Monterrey Mexico. That's impossible. So of the forty one games they've played they've essentially had fifteen home games. No other team in baseball has had fewer than nineteen. So the reds are the bottom of the list completely but beginning tomorrow when they have the cubs in town, then the dodgers in town. This is the rebirth of the reg. Plus the weather returns. We've had terrible weather. The weather's back. They've been to Maggie co they've been to the west coast. They've only had fifteen home.

"That's good. I believe in that. I think that's just the way it should be. Plus you guys when they started on runs. They're gonna throw inside. They clearly on. I mean Alonzo got hit hard. He got hit on the on the shield, but he he's lucky because he got hit hard. Yeah. You did. Did I? Right now. Conforto is doing a good job Canova's starting to get hot. I hope he continues. Now that he's back in the lineup, which is good to say. Your offense has been very productive. And I may let's see what Frazier. Did he did a good job, obviously since he's been back? But this offense has been surprisingly good. So far, you gotta be very pleased with it because from top to bottom. It's really been very productive. I am very pleased. You know on some nights we have got like Davis hidden eight right before the pitcher. And he got the ability of Papa Homer on somebody. And then, you know, come up with a big double. But I'm very very pleased with the way we're swinging the bat the approach we're taking the waiver grinding out every at that. No matter what the score is. You know, if we would have done a better job with our bullpen time. We were coming back and gains and giving us opportunity to win. We just couldn't hold them. So now at our bullpens in a little bit better spot. They're performing better. Hopefully, even before down a few runs. We can hold them right there at our offense is gonna come back and score some run to give us a chance. Well, plus, you know, let's be honest Alonzo's a lot better than any of us thought. I mean. What we thought he was going to be okay? You know in do decent job here and hit some home runs. He's been a star so far. I mean, he's been eating. Star what he's done. That's it's absolutely right. And and it's not just walk. I mean, this kid is doing it because he's skilled you know, he can run on second going the other way that takes skill. That's not just getting beat by a fastball and getting lucky hitting it. The other way he's intentionally taking a great approach and that works, and it's also overshadowed a little bit. How Conforto sit because got six home runs. And he's done a heck of a job. It is. And and that's nice. That's what you want you want that guy. Look at snake and hanging in the weeds. And all of a sudden top Homer all may we've got about him because everybody else is doing so. Well, yeah, I mean Conforto has gotten off to a good start. I mean last year he said, he really didn't feel healthy told me spring training didn't feel great all year. Now, you know, you can see maybe it took him the whole year to get get himself back in Kano got off to the slow start after opening day. He now looks like he's swinging the bat so you get those three guys going together sprinkle in romo's. Maybe Frazier a little bit of a home. Run on the lineup looks pretty good. No. They really do. Like, you said those three guys that that's very dangerous Robbie's been squaring the ball up. And went Conforto makes it out this year. It looks like he almost just a Homer. You know, it's like he's just barely missing it. So those guys are locked in. They'll continue to be locked in. 'cause they're great hitters, and that's something that the other pitching coaches are not happy to to prepare for when they come in and play the Mets Mickey Callaway domestic thirteen up in ten down playing solid baseball right now need to get their big one two punch going in the pitching department before it gets to the Graham, Nimmo the hero bleak. And you think oh. We know that we just dealt with this judge and they called it a severe oblique injury. How about yours? What did you look at it? We were very concerned last night because like you said, you hero bleak. And then your your mind starts bordering. He has taken swing today. Feels great you can be available late in the game. Okay. So we're not that concerned. So he's back. All right. What do you think? Let's take the ground. I is the Graham in your mind. One hundred percent full ball, full go. Everything's clean. Everything's good. And he can go back to work. I think that's the way it's going to be obviously, we gotta get through the next few days before, you know, we want him to get on the mound and start again. But at this point all is good now with Syndergaard. Mickey what I see is. I see him just not finishing guys off with two strikes. What what now we know what kind of stuff he's got is it that he has to be more economical. Does he have to be more aggressive? What do you think got to go on for him to to have easier innings? You know, what he's got to get ahead better. You know, he's he's such a strike thrower, historically that we're not worried about the walks and things like that. But you still have to get ahead. Even if you end up getting that guy out if you're not getting ahead in the count and control count your swing and misses go away. The foul balls start to add up and your pitch count goes up. So he needs to continue to understand that. I gotta so strike one. I gotta throw one one strikes always being control that Cal like you said he gets a tremendous talent. And he's gonna get out as long as he's doing the right things and the right thing for him is getting ahead consistently and doing it at an elite level. So he can continue to be an elite pitcher they squaring up on him. Or is he just a little while right now? I think it's been a little bit of both a little wild. And then when he has to come back into the zone, he's having throat middle of their smart about. So that's why it's so important to strike lawn and and two strike count three pitches to make sure that you're controlling that count. So they can't just sit up there Jill comfortable that you're to have to come middle. And they're gonna whack the other day Matt's bounce back. You had to like the way you bounce back off that game without getting it out to come right back and turn it around this quickly as he did give you six innings like that you had to be very happy. I was very happy because that's not an easy task you know, sane team. You have same historically probably not the best thing in the world. Not many of done to come back be mentally tough enough to come out there. And just put all that behind you throw it away. He did that was huge step for the team. And that was a huge step for Stephen migrate news really starting to get a grip on that mentality that he needs to be, you know, the number three guy. I agree. That was a good test for him. I totally agree. How about familiar how do you feel about where he is right now? He's east on the ball. Really? Well, the last couple of outings, you know, he was kind of suffering the fate of the other guys like he was he was while you gotta throw strike one in this game. I don't care how nasty of a sinker. You got. Okay. If you go a ninety five mph slider. You gotta get ahead. You got to tack the hitters and make them hit it, and he wasn't. He didn't have that ability early on. So it cost him a little bit. But the last two out and she's been a lot better. Do you want to look if you wanna run guys back and forth to to? I mean, do you feel like you got a little bit of a taxi squad. But this bullpen in the mine is where you can run guys back and forth, and you know, use them and then cycle them through. And bring them back and forth. Is that kind of the idea? Yeah, we do. Syracuse is obviously close to that. Makes it a lot easier. It's like, for instance, in we're talking about the bullpen for for instance. Rosie got sick the of the day the same day that more than we knew it. We drove the guy over four hours away and bam. He's in the start line-up. We went a game. But we do have that ability, and you know, what until guys step up. That's what the case is going to be. We need some guys coming up from triple AAA stepping up throwing the ball over the plate and giving us a chance to win. I don't care if you're the ten th pitcher the twelfth pitcher or closer, you gotta go out there and post strikes, and we can count on you any reason as a guy who was an historic pitching coach with the Indians a couple years ago. Why bullpens all over baseball getting beat up so badly. One one train of thought is that the hit is getting used to see and all this heat coming out of the bullpen. You buy that at all. I think there's something to that. I think the reason is the starters aren't going deep into game. You're bullpens are getting overtaxed every single year. You know, a lot of managers aren't letting their their guys go through the order the third time. And I think it may start taking a toll on some of the the Bolton arms that you have because they're just you know, pitching in situations. And maybe, you know, five to ten innings even hit can make a difference per year. When you're talking about, you know, an uptick in of twenty percent when it's twelve thirteen innings. Do you think Mickey? So I think that maybe with to a point though, that they all see seeing so many guys come out of the bullpen with this crazy heat that you gotta get guys to sink the ball, a cut the ball little more. Maybe then then just throw hit the fastball. Absolutely. You have to have guys that aren't doing the norm and the norm nowadays is ninety six ninety seven. More. So the guy was thinking, right? Yeah. Take it a little more make it right? A little more breaking stuff a little bit more maybe a site on her. Those guys will always have success because they're not typical. You've seen the guys any of the vision. Every you know, everybody looks pretty equal pretty even. I mean, everyone everyone looks like they can play everybody. You have teams solid right now. It's it's done a good job at thirteen and ten is sitting in a solid position. The gotta be okay with everything we know the pitching's going, you know, you gotta expect to grandma's gonna gonna get better. We have to expect that that they're all stars. So we expect that you got to feel pretty good about. I think I think everyone has to feel pretty good about the Mets. I think you've gotta feel pretty good about your ball club right now. You really do. I'm very pleased with the way we played I'm pleased with the Coon that we have the atmosphere in the clubhouse the atmosphere in the dugout and our best strength. So far has not been very good. So we're going to continue to get better. And better it seems like a now listen probably hitting buddy says that about any team. That's doing. Okay that it seems like a happy team. Your team does seem like you got a mix of kids in veterans. You got some young guys who have come up, you know, like, you can tell that Alonzo and McNeil of come up and they've kind of like transferred the team a little bit from where it was a couple years ago with those two guys with their personalities, especially when Alonzo's personality it in a casino and Aram romo's. You got Fraser who's a veteran? You got a young vet and Conforto. It seems like a good mix. It really it seems like a very happy team. Yeah. You you hit the nail on the head. You know, some writers coming up to me today. Saying, hey, this is the most relaxed most. Fun, most energetic club house, we've been around all guys are all get along. And everything you said is exactly true. It's been fantastic. Sounds good. Okay. Keeping up. Thanks. We'll talk to you again. Thank you very much. Thank you Mickey Callaway as the Mets and the Phillies. Now, they gotta get Vargas going, listen, Vargas, Vargas, they need to get. Cindy god. And the Graham doing what they do then you can live with. We'll hopefully being good again, and you can get it Matt's going, then you can live with the fifth thought on if the fifth spot is your only problem, you don't have that many problems. I mean, that's that's the bottom line. You can.

"That's true. But how do you have different rules for different people based on their color? That's like saying, okay. We'll black people can use this word, but white people cannot and homosexuals can make homosexual to other homosexuals because they're homosexual. It doesn't make sense to say that it's okay for some people to do it and other people not to do it based on their sex or based on their color or rate. Either form why isn't that in a sense racism? I mean. People to call certain people other things because they are that to me doesn't make a whole lot of sense. And then you look at diversity point. You're making about diversity in sports. Okay. Well, what about basketball basketball, seventy five percent African American and only twenty percent white? But we don't talk about basketball. We talk about baseball being only seven point whatever percent black. What percentage of baseball is Latino? I mean, it it seems to be one and not the other. There's other sports where where where all Cajun white people are the minority. Of course. But what you're talking about? There is you're talking about America Crecy. The reason why I'm talking about it in the context of baseball is because baseball with African American percentage of players dropping about ten percent over the last twenty years choosing different sports lack of opportunity lack of field lack of scholarships. It's not it's not because they're just not good at baseball. Right. So that's so I'm saying if there's only seven point eight percent black players in baseball. It would serve us. Well to understand the perception. And the experiences of those players in the game not suspend them for language that can be used in their culture to mean, something different. I believe that a job should be earned by merit. Whether of yours on your percent black people in in baseball because there's seven hundred fifty black people that are better than every other. Whatever race player is on the field plane, whatever color, they are not. Of course, what I what I'm saying. Is the reason I mentioned the percentage of black people in baseball is to illustrate the fact that it's a sport institutionally that doesn't understand Tim Anderson's perspective his life experiences. If we want to have a conversation about why were black people are playing baseball today. Then twenty years ago, we can have it. That's a different conversation. I appreciate the call. I use the seven point eight percent point to illustrate Tim Anderson's. The only black player on the white socks. The only African American player on the White Sox. Because there's there's Dominican players there's other minorities, but in terms of a African Americans the only one of the White Sox. We wanna talk about lack of opportunities lack of fields in the inner city, the expensive nature of travel baseball things that make in America. Youth baseball participation for dominantly monochromatic for white people. We can have that conversation on a separate show. It's one that I think's worth having. But I don't want to confuse the conversation around here with tomatoes, which was he was suspended for language. Eight five five two one two four CBS is the number in Bolingbrook, Illinois, Rick is on The Danny Parkin show. What's up Rick? Yes, I think ninety five mph fastballs can take your life. But we're whenever now I'd like that in that in that circumstances. See baseball is more concerned about. Punishing somebody or they're really trivializing the word checking Robinson that was tied of the unwritten rule. They threw a ball him unwritten rule. Jackie robinson. Spiked ball at him. When unwritten this was very anger because this man threaten his life. This manager told him this picture to throw him and baseball. If throwing shade on this issue you throw at this man and threatened his life. But you're going to feign like you're concerned about racial disparities and things and doing the yes, there are a lot of black. We like to stamp out the use of the word anywhere. But it's so ingrained in the culture. And when we couldn't say people stop people from using it, we have the blunt, the oil this term and made it endearing and some things like that to do that. Yes, we'd like to stamp out the term, but we have to we have to make it. So it didn't interest at a time when we couldn't do anything people saying, and the culture wasn't politically. Correct. So that's way, it became ingrained in the culture. But I think baseball it has. Powered is wrong. They should've just let this one go by the boards and not keep the same false equivalency say all right? The thraw project out they can take a person's life at him because he showed me up. That's the issue. I agree. I agree with that completely. And thank you for the call. Here's the thing about the bat flip in unwritten rule stuff. I'm so uninterested in that conversation because it's happened for the since the dawn of time in baseball. My guess is before the end of this year. A member of the White Sox is going to drill an opponent on the other team for showing him up on a home run, and the shoe will be on the other foot and they'll get charged because one of their pitchers hit another player. Baseball's full of hypocrisy that way. The bat flip should you? Get to me that conversation is is over like it. It's not going to change this Anderson won't be a tipping point for that. It's stupid. Obviously, the correct response of Tim Anderson hits four hundred twenty foot home run, and then pinches home run and throws his that next time. He comes up don't hit them strike his ass out. And then trash talk him. If you want you shouldn't throw a baseball out of ninety five miles. Now, that's idiot. Eric, I also find it to be obvious. But baseball is so archaic in so many ways that I don't expect that to change anytime soon. I wish it would. But again, I think the White Sox will probably be hypocritical. The she will be on the other foot at some point. And they'll go off. I know this is a passionate topic for a lot of people. And I get that completely. I just by I respect I've got people who are saying, listen, I'm black. I'm married to this black person. They say never used the word, and we don't need to hear you talking about your opinion of the word. Okay. Cool. Listen, I know that there's people who disagree on the use of the word in the black community. I get it. What I'm saying is. Understanding the nuance of that word in twenty nineteen should matter. And having an uncomfortable conversation. Can actually be helpful. So many people live in all of these bubbles and all of these places where they don't talk to people from different cultures. They don't know people from different cultures, and then you lack understanding and you just like well as it should just be a one size fits all paint by numbers approach to language or to race or to anything. That's not life. Life isn't black and white. It's gray. It's complicated. It's nuance. There's context, and I think baseball totally dropped the ball in understanding the nuance. And the context of one of its emerging star players, by the way, Tim Anderson leads the American.

"And catchers reporting, obviously all over baseball today, Madison, Bumgarner FPU and our talking about this Madison. Bumgarner goes up to Joey Bard who is the number one prospect in all baseball just happens to be in the giants organization, and he says, I want you catching me today. This is a very powerful message today message today by Madison Bumgarner. Yeah. This is the biggest deal in the world that means joy bar. It's gonna start. And that means Joey. Opening day because Madison Bumgarner ask Joey bar to catch him day one. Now, we don't know exactly what happened with that session because there was no cameras around there. But so I want to explain to people at home. What happens with the rookie sometimes in any sports? Well, I mean, you you tell us because obviously you being around in locker rooms being around with your dad playing, and I mean, you, you know, more of the the inside clubhouse than most. I would say, yeah. Well, I guess I do I think you do. I mean, you you've been around majorly clubhouses in Shubra child. Yes, I've seen everything you could see everything. So so tell me what does actually because I didn't think this was fascinating today. The Madison goes up to Joey Bart says you're gonna catch me today. It was almost like a like here. I'm throwing it on the table on the chin. Check your right now. Essentially what happened which is probably one of those things where Joey Barr showed up the yard. And it's probably going to be catching some minor leaguers or some guys he's going to be with an easy day. Now, it's an easy day. But just going to get some work and still, but then Bumgarner goes act like I'm pointing my finger out. And it's Bumgarner Posey now I'm gonna go Joey Joey come over here. And he goes, okay. And it's kind of like I want to see what you got. Sure. Sure. Received the ball. How? Well, do you make my slider? Look, I well, can you hold my off speed can you frame my my fast on the inside just a little bit? That's what the feeling I got just stuff like that. And little things like that. It's it's kind of like checking it's it is checking a rookie to making sure that they are who they say they are or are who they are projected to be same thought. I got that. It's the same exact thing. I felt when I saw it means nothing, you know, whether he's gonna start or not. But it was it was kind of cool to see mass Bumgarner that and I don't have a personal relationship with Bumgarner. But knowing what I've heard about Bumgarner. He's the kind of guy to give guys tough times like that good way where he's he's messing with the rookies. He's trying to put them in kind of a mental pretzel where it's just a face a little adversity. You know what I mean? So I wouldn't be surprised if he literally threw fifty sliders in the dirt to him today. Just to see how it blocked a giggle. That's the kind of guy must begun. Bumgarner is snowing France and for the past three years and just how ball players are in general. That's that's not anything. I think is far fetched. I thought something similar like that was happening today when I saw Bumgarner point out to Joey bar that he wanted him to catch him for day one. But hearing what you just said. Yeah, I b-. I absolutely now can see how that session went. I could just see him just going. This is the first time ever thrown a baseball and just throw it to the backstop or throat way over said like sorry. It's not going to be close today. Just joking around with Joey barges to see where he is rattled. You're going to see if you think about it on the kid from college. I get drafted by the giants. I'm no, I'm good BUSTER Posey's right next to me all of a sudden throwing or I'm receiving a three time world championship pitcher. I've watched these guys on TV my whole life growing up. And now, I'm catching their bullpens. It's kind of a bit of a pinch me moment. So I think it was a good opportunity. I wish there were cameras there. But obviously there weren't for reasons. But I can imagine something like that happening. Yeah. I I'm fascinated by that I'm very much looking forward to spring training. I know a lot of people are too because we talked to hang showman last night. We're trying to figure out what the identity of this team is for twenty nineteen. We don't have an answer for that. Right now. That's a question, Mark. I think we do a little bit versatility. If he can play multiple physicians if he can be inserted into two or three more positions. Even as a pitcher if you can be relief pitcher. If you can opener if you can be starter. Guess what you gotta spot on this baseball team. You're trying to make this roster twenty five man roster into like fifty five man roster. Just because of all the available position players and how versatile pitchers can be. So the whole theme. I think of this year is okay. Let's see if we can get guys that can play all the positions. I mean, we even got a Stephen vote recently signed did not sign Hunley, even though Huntley played some first base before he got himself a minor league deal with the as so I mean. Hundley. He was fantast vote even play left field a little bit last year. He played first base. You play catch plays more than one position. So there you go that's the thing. So if you see guys on the market right now that can play one more than one position guarantee. You the giants are talking to their agent right now. I like the guy right now as I thought it was a great move today by Bumgarner column barred out like that for the first day was calling them out. And they obviously were speculating to like he can't just be like, hey, kid, the guy, and he wasn't messing around calling amount out as saying, I'm calling you out. It's calling him out. It's like you're gonna you're gonna work with me day one here right off the bat going I like that. I mean boats was talking about Bumgarner saying he came in ready. I mean, this is going to be an interesting spraying it really is for for a lot of guys going around the world of baseball. What's going on with Alex bregman? He's trying to start up something with Boston. I like this. I like this baseball. Honestly, a lot of people will say it's tired within the game. But I like this. I think this is good for baseball. Any press is press. So Alex bregman spoke up a little bit and said after watching the patriots win with the red socks beating us to last year. There's no other city that I like to be more than the Red Sox this year. Yeah. So Boston is to go down. I mean, listen to Exxon Boston's back, and I think everybody's kind of thinking like that. So why not why not start to the flair that up in baseball? He gets weird though because then you start drilling each other like get rid of that just stop hitting each other like talk talk your crap back it up like in the players do in like just don't even think about throwing a ninety five mph fastball. It somebody's head. That's all you gotta do. And then baseball's more interesting sport. Do you think that's the that's the round they should take? Well. Yeah. Because the self policing thing is so big. And it's so over generalize. Okay. What's gonna fit into the unwritten rule? All you have to do in. This is like gonna make Pierce, go crazy. If a guy purposely drill somebody you give him a ridiculous suspension. So that way, they don't even think about it. Or if you're going to you'd better get your money's worth. So I'm talking about four or five starts missing. That's a lot of games. And that's how you get rid of guys going after each other like that. And you can have the crap talk. You can have the little pettiness. You can have the competitive edge that baseball is lacking. That dramas fund pay attention to that the drilling it's it's so tired because nothing comes of it. Right. Like, oh, we're gonna we're gonna push each other and the punishment more harsh than if you're actually are going to drill somebody that you you better really wanted to better. At that point. You know, it's happening. And then then fists are really gonna fly. So we're not pushing and shoving crap any right? So if someone beans somebody then it's legit. It's on beef mound. Rush superbeets. It wasn't like they got a lot of beef in the NBA between guys we had a lot of beef in the NFL where we need more petty beef like this why because it creates drama and conversation. Yes. That makes things in a chance. I need. I need. Somebody Red Sox. Any Mookie Betts saying, hey, you could save it? I'm with you. I'm with you. Because above all anything else. I mean, we talk about how much we love baseball and football in the NBA. And I heard guys talking today about the NBA all I get so sick of seeing these non calls guys taken four five steps to the basket nowhere. Everyone's flapping. Listen above all else. The NBA is inter team. It's entertaining to watch the NBA if you want fundamental basketball, go watch the euro league. Nobody does that though, why do you tune into the NBA is it to watch fundamental basketball as to watch professional basketball be entertained by this entire league, which they've mastered at marketing, they're so brilliant at what they do at how they present their product. If you wanna watch fundamental basketball, they go into a you're only game, that's fine. If that's what you'd love to watch. But don't complain that the NBA's not that way. Because listen what James harden dead? What Russell Westbrook day with the triple. Doubles. That was unbelievable to watch. Yes. I've saying this that's not gonna win the championship. Faisal ball the style of game. Like the way Russell is. And I was just talking about Russell about how he's the maturation process with him. It's been incredible to watch. But still these solo acts in the NBA are fun to watch the regular season campaign. And we got a dust up in Portland. What's going on just a little bit screen? There's speaking of pushing and shoving someone throw ball behind them. Anyway, my entire point is above all as all of these leagues are for our entertainment. That's why we pay money to go and see these guys play so baseball needs. Yes. Baseball needs more something. I don't know what it is. Maybe it is the drama, but they need more something because this off season for baseball is atrocious. What frustrates me so much in baseball guys actually think like this like God damn I hate that guy. That guy's sucks. And they don't say they don't say because they know that baseball is such a game of failure. That if one little thing happened say that you go over three one night. Everybody hops on you for that. Oh for three if you give up three runs in inning. Everybody hops on you. And it's such a game. Like that guys are kind of I wouldn't say scared, but they just don't want to have that baggage with them. So guys are afraid to come out like that he's going to be the first guy. Well, I could see bregman doing that. Because he's very very savvy with that very savvy with marketing, and he's got his own YouTube channel. So you need to start having guys come at each other honesty. We added a little bit this off season. But he didn't even make our airwaves between Kris Bryant. And yet, you're Molina. They had a little bit of dust up. But nobody really cared because it's like just baseball. We'll see what happens to the seasonal prototype. Each other. It's not it's not venomous like it is and other sports like somebody, Chris, Bryan and Melina million Molina's pissed. Nobody talked about that though. In Kris Bryant, just made an offhand in conversation. Like, oh, yeah. Those guys they're not that big of a deal to us this year, and then Melina with pest and had some comments himself. So. Baseball needs is they need guys. Like because trust me, if you have been around baseball players you've been around for any, you know, this you've been in a locker room. These guys are very vocal. And they're like, dude, I cannot stand that gone in their side. Whether he plays or not, I respect the hell out of them. But dude, his act is tired. Like a certain guy who used to salute around here. A lot of people were irritated with him. A lot of people were weak is another one tweeden even in his own locker room. Guys were tired of it. What are how he's going to be in Cincinnati. Yeah. A little bit more of a mellow tone for. No, no, I think he's even worse. He's trying to get on camera. All the time. He's going to be. He's got up to even work harder. To try to get on social media now. Cincinnati. Yeah. He's gonna he's going to be doing some stuff trusting are you think? So so yes. So he's going sell. No. Because nobody goes the gains in Cincinnati anyways. That's very true..

"ninety five mph" Discussed on FanGraphs Fantasy Baseball

"I would always see a better potential upside for him than reports for some reason, I just reports L is like quintessential fourth starter for me like a very good one. Most teams would kill to have as for starter or even their third but for fantasy. There. It's just like, okay. Twenty four percents strikeout. Ring last year. Cool. Eight point seven percent swing strike rate or some fraudulent stuff there, man. I just don't buy it is gonna go back down to twenty twenty twenty one percent. So it's just a no for me. I did when when he was a tiger. I did think he had a lot more upside. And I think he started a tap into that. I thought that was more than this. But he did jump a level. What the Red Sox and credits him for that? But he actually lost ground ball aspect to become more bit of a strike out guy. But now, I it's it's a no for me. I pass on him late. I go for I'm trying to think of some of the names that would be in that area. Like, even like, Josh James. I think I would go for over him. And we don't even know if he's going to have a starting job yet. Right. You know, stuff like that throw in there. Yeah. I I think I think I'd go for somebody like I liked what he was able to do with that sheriff. I think I'd go from more of a guy I liked to clown cow gifts. And I think there's at least more of an upside it luck. If for you know, so proud of you. Go another guy who's kind of in that crusty veteran Brown, but that I would prefer because I think there's more upside to him it'd be like Jose condone a-. Sure, how taken Tana over Portillo aside. Just don't have a good vibe on Portillo. And so he's an easy pass it forty. Let's move on next up as we get into the last ten here. Forty one through fifty. This one's probably for some reason. I thought you were higher on him. But I I missed I miscalculated on thought you were like big Shane Bieber. Top forty type you said you had him in your fifties, though. The market is excited about Bieber. Holy to Lido forty second starting pitcher for the next Michael Pineda. Well, well, okay. So they see the twenty percent came is walk rate, and they see three twenty three fifth and they go. Well, here we go. Now, the problem with with Bieber is he does have his electric slider that he hasn't even quite even seeing the potential of yet. I don't think he's not using exactly right. Quite a money. But right, and he's not overloading with it, which is annoying. The problem is that his fastball is really mediocre. What he now he's a Cleveland Indian? We don't have anybody with everybody. I think like drafting or trading for this. This is what they do. It's like an market inefficiency that they see. Right. But the thing about facile is that he gives it so much and you see three fifty six Babb and a lot of people go that has to come down. And then might those with this thirty, but it's not going to be anything like a two eighty or anything close to that. Bingo. And that's the problem is that he gives in so much. Now, the good games that he had last year was when he actually had a least two walks a disproportionate amount of games two or more relative to one Walker. Fewer were better because he wasn't giving in. He was nibbling more around the plate, essentially him and clever jer need to make a baby and that all my it'd be the best pitcher learn from each other because like I've been saying this in lockstep on beaver it because it is the Pineda. It is the Jephson Marga thing. Stop laying ninety three even the ninety five mph fastball is straight as narrow down the middle on a three one count. You're gonna get clubbed. Just walk the guy. And reset. You're good enough to get out of it. You can strike out the next guy or you can get get an out with the next guy..
