"the hinch" Discussed on The Sean Salisbury Show
"Themselves if Clemson and Notre Dame play each other again in the ACC championship and look if those two teams split, we could be talking about both of them in the semifinals come December twenty eighth. That's very possibility. Yeah. Now I know we say this a lot about Notre Dame at this time, and then somewhere along the line they. Over. Screwed up whether it's yeah but this could be. Really good football team. He got to the playoff one. Yeah. They lost to not the playoff but to the championship game that was the last time had been one of the big ones I believe them. And they got smoked threat they haven't been to the playoffs. Last year. As a bad championship game got hammered. Yeah. They got. It was done it like halftime was that McCarron's year one of. Trying to Karen that. It's been it's been a bit but Notre Dame's. Program here Brian Kelly is good football coach. They'll be ready and I can assure you Brian Cloudy. Notre Dame plays this week but I promise you. He's not talking about next week but deep in his mind he's expecting Trevor Lawrence too polite. Yeah. The only way you can they play Georgia tech this week, which we saw Clemson hang fifty plus on them in the first half. Kagins. Yeah. I. Think this will put it this way with thirty one point favorite that Clemson is over thirty one and a half points over Boston college both of them were coming into south southbound next week undefeated. Now for gamblers and point spreads that's up to you to figure out but as far as lens go and when we waltz into South Bend next week both these teams be undefeated and Clemson will still be number one and Notre Dame will be what are they four? Four four then they won't be moving off that mark. It'll be one verse four next week in South Bend, Sports Talk Seven Ninety shot South Ratio Mc's here. With me in our Guy Josh See. IT IS A. Sports Talk Ninety Rolling along we'll stick it out next. Let the celebrations start more sean sounds very on sports talk seven hundred. Sean. Now the sells very stakeout some. On on the Sean sounds ratio. What I'M Here is we're playing the stakeout. That's right. What you got. The Detroit Tigers mentioned they are on the verge of hiring AJ hinch to be there next manager after his suspension ended after the world series ended my question for you on the hinch hiring their Detroit is. When will he get them back into the postseason? They've not been there since two thousand fourteen not had a winning season since twenty sixteen. How long? Do you think it takes Aj hinch to get them. Back to a winning record this past year they went twenty three and thirty five in the sixty game season the year before that they went forty seven in one fourteen. All right he's going to get along leash. Okay. Not only. Yeah. I now. So he's hitching closer to a contract, right? God Yes. All right He's hinges away. Aj. Stay away from baseball to stay away I don't need to Hinch is. Twenty two, they win more than eighty two games. Next after this next, if they play baseball yeah. If there's not A. Right. So they will say, Max. Three. Years Realistic two years. For me. I think you're probably right. They've got some young prospects. And I think he'll and they've had the ability you WanNa talk about. Out They not they've spent in the past two. In George Springer, could land there. He wouldn't wanNA land there but they've gone big on players. Oh. Yeah. We like we said, money can change a lot of things man yeah. You can wait and try to hundred and seventy-five million bucks. Yeah. Well, if off season somewhere else you don't think AJ would go in there and pined for that. Yeah. What what a what a great way to start off leading off your games with George Springer Atlanta George Dongo. So I'm GonNa say twenty, twenty, two, they have a winning record. Latest while say twenty twenty latest twenty, twenty, three close in twenty maybe right around five hundred. Little under. But by the time he's into his third year they'll be optimism in spring training. It'll be optimism now when he science because Aj hinch but those prospects start to rear their head. low eighties by two, thousand, twenty, three. Make Sense. Yeah. I mentioned it earlier. I'm surprised AJ would actually go to Detroit I know it's probably the only job offer. He really has a chance to get right now but I think if he just waits a year even maybe later in the off season. That opens up that's to win now I thought about it too. and. Then I thought about this aspect of it. He sits he sits out he still has to wait another year to get a job this time guaranteed to come. And get a feel that. A lot of people aren't right jumping on this because of the bad pr. I mean the good jobs typically don't come open that's so he goes and takes this Detroit job. He deals with the media storm now, which isn't a typical media star has also been calls. He does it again, Spring Training, and then once we get playing baseball again, nobody's going to talk about him because he's managing the Detroit Tigers Right Stink and here's the deal. Remember how big a hero he was sixty game seat going from Sixty Game Seasons Division winner sixty win seasons. Now HE TURNS THEM INTO A. He's a hero. because. He again, he's going to have a leash. He's GonNa get along deal. That's right. He's going to get a long leash to turn this thing around like he's got he's got a great job scared look. I wouldn't want to live in the city of Detroit but I got news for you when they're winning good baseball. Yeah it really is so I don't think it's As crazy as I initially thought, it wasn't taking edge. Now if I was still I wouldn't take it. I would I would wait for different job, but it'd be WANNA get back in. You don't want you won't want to hold onto this thing make it last longer I get it I do too and plus when you're out of something guys out of any job you. Get better you end somebody presents you opportunity to give with one of the. With with eighteen running the show and having a long leash getting paid. More poorly, than the money right now for AJ, he gets a chance to get back and do what he loves to do. It's hard to replace those competitive juices again and getting rolling I get it now valid tramline sweet Lou, whitaker can just come back and get the short porch in right field again now, maybe Miguel Cabrera will hidden. because. He's only under contract like another four years. Here's what they do. Go Out and get go out and get go Cabrera actually lead them at home runs this year go out and then and bring in. Mar Martinez JD signed bachelor. It could bring back Got All, right? Miguel Cabrera's under contract for a guaranteed one two three more seasons at thirty, thirty, two and thirty, two, million through the age of forty and then he has vesting options which won't hit but he could potentially be under contract for another five years. Mickey. The last three seasons or something with Miguel. Cabrera. Has Been A to fifty hitter to eighty two with twelve home runs. To nine with three home runs to forty nine with sixteen home runs, he's not good anymore they're paying thirty million bucks a year Mickey. From Maggie Maggie Cabrera great great name though isn't it? He was on key Cabrera longtime. Love it. I agree maybe he finds something as back this year he's thirteen home runs away from five hundred and. Career about one hundred, forty hits from three thousand eight triple crown winner at one point. Crown. Two. Batting titles pretty good. That's a that's a hall of fame. Wait to happen from Gal Cabrera With that and macgyver lost my train of thought Was it about Aj Hinch? Detroit. Miguel Cabrera Berlinger JD, Martinez Oh by the way Pozas waived. So they're going to be fine looking for a new closer. Yeah. Ever in that was inevitable right? There's no way they're gonNA pay him ten million bucks to maybe that was a formality. Not, having he hasn't had Tommy John to be honest with you get a second opinion that said he didn't. But that's why you can't risk that. He continued to put it off. You continue to delay your return. Yeah. So yeah. So I think Aj Hinch my twenty, twenty three and yeah. Cabrera's getting paid a lot of.

Rumors: Hall of Famer Tony La Russa could be the next Chicago White Sox manager
"Of the White Sox managerial search boy, There's a lot of craziness out there right now. I feel like we should trust our instincts. A. J. Hinch Alex Cora the top two choices. I think they've really sort of zeroed in on a J. Hinch more than anybody else. But Bob Knight, a longtime baseball scribe continues to float this idea that the top choice of the Chicago White Sox Is Tony. LaRussa and that it is his job if he wants it. That was the bombshell from yesterday.
Avila says Tigers aren't ruling out Hinch, Cora for manager
"Have come up to replace the Detroit Tigers. Suddenly retired manager boxes man's Napolitano has Mohr Detroit Tigers general manager Al Avila admitted that former Houston Astros manager a J. Hinch and former Boston Red Sox skipper Alex Cora are among the candidates being looked at to replace Ron Gardenhire. We've been collecting names Teo. Look into and do some research engine core. Both lost their jobs as a result of Major League Baseball's investigation into the Houston Astros science dealing operation while Hinch was manager of the Stroh's and chorus served his bench coach during their 2017 World Series winning season, core has actually been linked to return to his old Red Sox job, with interim skipper Ron Radike, officially not returning next year. Matt Napolitano, Fox News
Is Alex Cora's Red Sox Return a Done Deal?
"Onto corre again whether it's always been whether this is a fait accompli and it's it's known. Or just a very strong possibility if he does come back first off Handicap this and second if he does come back. Are you looking at full acceptance here is there any resentment will there be backlash or does he does it feel like he largely escaped you know the kind of the wrath of of Major League baseball and the public for his role in the cheating scandal with the acid feels like he's GonNa come out of this. Fairly clean. Well, he has been suspended for a full seizure and he was essentially fired although the Red Sox will remind you that the key phrases. Really agreed to Parkway's Yup up. Nonetheless, his punishment is every bit as severe as A. J. Hinch who was the manager and presumably the guy in charge in Houston. So as the top Lieutenant Chorus suffered the same penalty that the guy who was running the show. So sure I think he got off lightly he lost a year of salary. He lost he was exiled from the game for all the twenty twenty and his reputation is at least somewhat tarnished by association with that season does he come back I? Think it's on the table. I think the players would absolutely welcome outscore back with open arms. I don't say that in that they have rejected Ron Reynecke or never paid attention or listen to him. But core obviously had a bond with most of the players on that roster and they would welcome him back for twenty twenty one going forward. I think also opera management and ownership having strong affection for Alex Cora I think they were sort of guilted into making. The decision they did back in January to let him go I. think that there was probably some pressure from Major League baseball to do so they did so reluctantly but knowing they had to do it. That's at I think they would welcome him back with open arms at the x factor. Here is hind bloom. He's the guy who is the chief baseball officer was hired by the owner several months before core laugh to run it his way. Yeah. So you know while the owners are saying in West Spring you know we'd be okay with are coming back in the players shore with like it it was probably would probably play well with the fan base ultimately bloom has to decide is this guy it's gotta be his idea I who am I? Okay. Off on his return,
Astros Scandal: MLB's Nightmare Continues
"You've been up in the northeast all winner in near thirty degrees to come down here in the first days of Spring and you already getting seventy five eighty and muggy. It's very different but you know hot not only with the weather but also with the players who well let's get into that Are you covering baseball a long time? Have you ever seen anything like we've witnessed over the last week? Absolutely not look. I mean the early days of spring training are usually about. Who's in good shape who worked? What pitch they worked on during the winter and here it's just flame-throwing. I know personally. I lost respect for those guys. Everyone in the show in the big leagues lost respect for those guys day after day after day of players being critical. But the part. That's so different is the peer to peer stuff. It's damaging to baseball. I feel like every single guy over. There needs a beating even through the steroid era. You didn't see this. Collective anger aimed at one group of players. The way we've seen other players so angry with the Houston Astros. They're angry at the Astros. And they're also angry at commissioner rob Manfred who stepped in it. I think it's fair to say on Sunday at his first press conference of Spring Training when he said the idea of an asterisk or asking for a piece of metal back seems a futile act. Justin Turner on the dodgers was not pleased. You know calling the world series trophy piece of metal. I mean I don't know if there's ever won anything in his life. Maybe he hasn't but the reason every guys in this room the reason every guy is working out all off season and showing up to camp early and putting it all the time. Effort is specifically for that trophy. I think we're used to seeing the likes of this directed towards the NFL. Commissioner Roger Goodell but before now Manfred laid pretty low. How has he generally been perceived by the players in the past well? There's no doubt that generally speaking that the relationship between players and Major League baseball is at its worst. I think in like twenty five years. You know what happened in the last time. The CBA was negotiated. Was the owners absolutely routed? The players in those talks getting a lot of advantages financial advantages taking a lot of the high ground that the players had owned the past and the last couple of years. We've seen that play out. In Free Agency. In veteran players have felt like that when they reach free agency. They're not getting as much money as they should have. So that's sort of been percolating the last couple of years and then when you have robbed make the comments that he he. He's made about the Astros in his handling of that case I think all that anger and it was built upon so he made the comment at the beginning of the week. What is he said since then? Well he acknowledged. He met with reporters on Tuesday night that he was mistaken in what he said. I referred to the World Series Trophy in a disrespectful way. And I want to apologize for that. There's no excuse for it I made a mistake. I was trying to make a point but I should have made it in a more effective way and again I want to apologize for it. Actually think that this was an important first step because he's made a lot of mistakes in this like the fact that in two thousand seventeen when you had the apple watch situation between the RED SOX and Yankees. He missed an opportunity at that time to draw a line in the sand to make it clear to everybody. Look Science. Stealing using electronics is not going to be accepted. He didn't do it in seventeen he didn't do it in eighteen. And let's face it when you listen to the players. Their anger over the fact that members the Astra's weren't disciplined that's viewed as another mistake. So I thought it was important for rob finally to acknowledge that. He's made mistakes. During this process. The players seem to have a problem with the fact that the astros players were given immunity a couple of days ago. Mike Trout said I don't agree with the the punishments you know the players not You know getting anything you know. There was a player driven You know thing cheat like that and not get anything it's it's It's sad to see which is remarkable buster because it's probably the most interesting thing might drive as every said about something other than the weather but it seems to be the way a lot of players feel why didn't Manfred punish them. Rob was in a position where this is not like the AA where you know the the head of the lake and come in and basically threaten players into cooperation. Major League baseball players are represented by the Union and so as they began this negotiation if they had simply gone in and told the players. Look we're coming you get the information. It would have been easy for the players to lawyer up and for a lot of the answers to Major League baseball to be along the lines of. I don't recall or I didn't hear that banging of the trash can and there's not really any way to challenge that and it would have been much more difficult for them to establish information if you remember fourteen years ago. George Mitchell was commissioned by Bud Selig to investigate the steroid era. He had no cooperation with the players because of the position of the Union. And I think that Manfred may have had the same situation if he hadn't given the players immunity. I think one thing to baseball looked at was boy we have litigation arbitration playing over the whole summer. At least this is one way to get to the truth quickly. Established what happened and try to put this in a rear view mirror. That clearly has not been as simple as they as they anticipated. Manfred has suggested that the players could have filed grievances because the Astros General Manager never sent along the rules. And I put the clubs on notice as to what exactly the rules were and how they were going to be treated going forward among the other failures of that organization. That information never made its way to the players. I was awesome. Well they just didn't do it. If we had disciplined the players in all likelihood we were GONNA have grievances and grievances that we were going to lose on the basis that we never properly inform them the rule so given those two. That's exactly right and that's sort of a classic thing because if you remember when Aj hinch the Astros manager did his interview with. Tom Produce one of the questions asked him was. Did Jeff Luneau tell you about this memo and Aj's answered very initially. No HE DIDN'T. The players could have done the same thing. Now you and I know from a point of view of common sense. That's kind of absurd because when the red sox apple watch thing happened in September two thousand seventeen that was out there like it was very public in disgust. That rob Manfred had come down with discipline and in warned. Everybody don't participate in this but again we're into lawyer speak now where well was they actually told specifically that. I wasn't allowed to do a B and C. No I wasn't I don't recall and would have been a morass rob's been commissioner now for five years buster. Is there any chance. He doesn't survive this no he. He's totally fine because of how much money they're making. I mentioned the two thousand sixteen collective bargaining agreement. How they were such an advantageous position when it comes to things like the luxury tax and they're making money hand over fist and for that reason he's fine. When people think about the commissioner I think casual fans will look at them as being the representative of the sport and representing the interests of fans and players and teams know. He's a team employee. He works for the owners and he's been doing a great job at making the owners a lot of money. He's on very solid ground
Houston Astros sign stealing scandal: Carlos Beltrán had a 'sway over the clubhouse'
"AJ. Hinch had a recent interview with the MLB network. He did not make any excuses for failure to prevent the answers legal practices. But what he mentioned that Carlos Beltran's sway over the clubhouse. Help explain the inaction of hinch and other coaches and players. No one wanted to challenge Carlos. Beltran what you're the manager of a baseball team. You're supposed to be the top guy in in that clubhouse how were you challenged threatened by Carlos Beltran at all? How now of course? I've never played major league baseball so I don't know what the actual clubhouse dynamic is there. I know teams want veteran presence in their for their experience and to help young guys through through their problems and some issues that they go through. Because hey happens to us ever happens to everybody in the league happens to everybody like I mentioned. Some players mentioned there in their first year. They didn't want to challenge veteran. They didn't want to go against the status quo or the status quo that they thought was in place because they were just there's rookie. They didn't know any any better. Was that excuse can only go for so long but you know what? I'm saying
Report: Astros' sign-stealing scheme began with front office 'Codebreaker' program
"Jeff Passan is an mlb the insider for ESPN. He's in West Palm Beach at the Astros Spring Training Facility. I keep thinking we're done talking about the Astros and then this story he keeps roaring right on back so the latest is we have. Aj hinch the former manager making his first public statement than jared diamond of the Wall Street Journal Final published a story with evidence that the Houston Front office laid the groundwork for some cheating with a system called code breaker. Can you bring us up to date date on us. Major League Baseball would love it. If this story went away in the Houston Astros would love it if this story went away and yet this onion with seemingly endless layers we'll start with the codebreakers story and the fact that we're talking about a baseball team and they have a system in place called code breaker in that one of their front office officials was referring ferring to it in emails as their dark arts. That helped win them a championship. Shows you just how deep the nefarious -ness of the the astros went the way it worked was they would have people in put signs and signed sequences this is into an excel spreadsheet and that excel spreadsheet would use an algorithm to spit out what the pitches were going to be. There's a lot to unpack here but I'll start here. I keep hearing that. These are the smartest guys in baseball. The Astros in particular right are geniuses it is and yet they called their scheme code breaker and put it in an email. I I don't even we know what to say other than you know in one of the early episodes of ESPN daily. We talked about the Astros. And and in that episode I remember pretty distinctly using a word Hubris when we look back on this astros team. Five of ten twenty years from now I think Hubris is ultimately going to be the defining characteristic of this team. The other thing that sort of moves the story forward so far as when the initial punishment came down Jeff often rob Manfred statement came out he seemed to put most of the blame. If not all of it really on the players now. We're here in the front office. They were up to their own. Misdeeds is that going to expand the punishment now and that's the curious part of this right the notion that at the front office which is still there is totally clean in this. It just doesn't hold a lot of water. Which is why the report that it came out in the Wall Street Journal was so damning because it name names it referred to a five page letter that Rob Manfred had sent to Jeff Luna that laid out his his case for Luna being involved in this now Luna still denies all of this? He said I would get these emails but I would just read the first page if you are essentially the CEO of baseball operations in an organization. Is it not your duty to read through emails. That people on your we're team or sending you particularly ones that might include references to these dark arts to these championship winning endeavors that you as the CEO either green lit or too incompetent to know we're going on. I would like to not be on the record for judging someone for not reading a very very long email right now you. You don't finish emails. I always read every long. Email my colleagues because you are the CEO Oh of ESPN daily and you know it would be wrong to do otherwise when you guys are figuring out the dark arts of casting hopefully code breaking going on over here at the same time as this Wall Street Journal story comes out. Aj hinch is being interviewed. And he was directly. Asked Jeff about whether whether players had buzzers under their jerseys to alert them to whether pitches becoming. Can you assure us there were no buzzers or anything like that. Being investigated the gated for three months. And the Commissioner's Office did as thorough investigation as anyone could imagine was possible you know. He mentioned the emails the text messages and I believe him. What did you make of his comments? All you have to do is just saying no. And the fact that he didn't come out and say no I think said a lot and is only fueling the fire here. I have been hearing for for upward of two years now about what one source called a pitch picking Algorithm. And that's exactly what code. Code Breaker was in so these little snippets. That I've been hearing whispers about but I try to track down and confirm every single single one of them. I mean every single one of them has become true. The only one at this point that has not been confirmed is being real is the buzzers.
A.J. Hinch’s take on A’s Mike Fiers exposing Astros’ sign-stealing
"Well for the first time since the sign stealing scandal broke AJ Hinch is talking publicly in an interview with MLB network former Houston Astros manager A. J. hinted midi could have done more to stop the sign stealing scheme that took place under his watch ultimately leading to his year long suspension and then dismissal from the Stroh's and an initiator didn't endorse it but I but I was the manager and I think there's a responsibility when you're in a position to end it engine manager breaking monitors used to help relay signals on two separate occasions when asked if he had any regrets I should have had a more forceful interaction at the at the at the appropriate time in chatting the understands why now some view the Astros twenty seventeen World Series win as
Did cheating help Astros win World Series? Hinch says we may never know
"Aj hinch and the interview. He did finally breaking his silence of the disgraced astros manager who was fired in the wake of the breaking story in major league. Next glad you said that the ask the disgraced astros manager he was not. There's nothing else to call him. He's a disgrace Astros manager He was caught up up in the science. Dealing Scandal of the Astros didn't do enough to stop it and the first thing rob Manfred did was announced his suspension for Major League Baseball and then a couple allows later. The Astros fired him. You mentioned the interview he did. It's going to air tonight. And he was asked. Does this championship that you wanted. Twenty Lee seventeen. Is it tainted by this new scandal. Unfortunately we open that door as a group in that question I may never be answered. We may never know we're going to have to live and move forward and be be better better in the sport but unfortunately no one can really answer. Threw that question. I I can't pinpoint what advantages or what what happened. Or what. Exactly what happened otherwise but we did it to ourselves. Okay wait I can answer. It had had a lot to do. Look at the home road. Splits of all your headers like Jose Altuve. Have you see our relay race. Home and road splits dislike. It's like four twenty at home one twenty on the road and you remember if correctly that was when they remember lost the Games in New York to the Yankees remember the laws and then at home the they won all games. I mean it was an if I'm a dodger fan. I'm salty as well 2017. MLB CHAMPION DOC. There are two parades coming twenty seventeen and twenty eighteen and then back to back. Alex Cora takes that same show on the road and same thing. I I asked we. We know of this movie Bets trae goes through. You know as as Alex Cora cheated to be named later. Is that a part of the look at you know. I think that was the penalty. Not was the red sox train. mookie Betts to the padres and they said No. No you gotta make amends and trading with the dodgers all right shoulder dodger you owe the dodgers at Aj Aj hinch clearly is in that mode all of us do this in our lives. Whenever something bad happens did the interview though he could he could run and hide for year and not be heard from? I think it's better when you get out in front of it. But is he getting out in front of my saying. I don't know what kind of impact this had. Clearly when you're batters know what's it's coming. It's a lot easier when you go to that length of we're putting in electronic sign stealing system and you play the. I'm only the manager card. I couldn't stop this. No one believes please. You know either. The point where he's at the point in his life and all of us do this right when something happens in our lives. It's bad that we're responsible for. What do we try to do at some point? We try rationalize why it happened. And it's not really our fault. Aj hinch is at this point where who knows what he's GonNa do in baseball again. He's going to manage again. Maybe a couple years somewhere where. I'm not quite sure that he's at that point. where I need to reconcile with myself because I am a world series champion and I'm not going to walk around every day going it was tainted? So I'm I'm GonNa convince myself that I don't know what kind of impact this had altuve as still had to hit the baseball even though he knew what was the old PD argument. So He's in that point of denial. where I'm going is still WANNA walk around and not just feel crappy every day that we won and we won by cheating? So I'm GonNa convince myself that I don't know what we we did. Any act on the game only problem is I get it if you told me that one every game at home then win every game at home even with the cheating scandal. Whoa with knowing what's coming? So that's the part that makes it hard that's why you can't go automatically and say well we should just turn championship over to the dodgers not that the dodgers. aww their fans would want it that way but they didn't win every game using that cheating system so okay so they won three quarters of their. But I'm just saying when eighty percent of they're games that that's the only reason and this could have It doesn't mean that Wa. The team couldn't have beaten them at some point. All I'm saying is I get it cheating. Cheating it helps them. I'm not denying that but it's a reason why you can't take the championship and I don't think that that will work for majorly based on you can easily take like the championship. And you can not awarded to anybody. Say No year but Rob Manfred and look rob Manfred and Adam. Silver are two of the new age commissioners which they they WANNA do nothing they want to do nothing but in grow the game and have great reputations right Adam silver wants to do a little bit less than Rob Manfred but rob Manfred I guarantee aren t you. He thought I'm taking care of this. Here's a suspension for hinch. Here's bench for Jeff Luna. I'm taking care of it and instead what happened. Was it mushroomed out of control to the point. Where an hour an hour after this broke? What was the biggest topic online? Put Pete Rose in the hall of fame. 'cause you're not taking care cheaters enough. This got completely out of control because Manfred doesn't WanNa be the guy where the first line of his wikipedia pages rob Manfred who presided over. MLB taking a world series away from a team for the first time Blah Blah Blah. Aw that would be his legacy. He wasn't going to do it he wasn't going to be the guy to say you're going to look back at my my rain and it's GonNa be pace of play but mainly it's going to be. He took look world series away. He presided over a dark time in major league baseball. He wasn't going to be that guy. I'm not gonNA wear it so I'm GonNa have this suspension and then whatever happens after it gets out of my control and I don't care that's why he didn't do anything. Yeah I I just I never been into it. Even college used to do it and the Olympics and taken away medals and stuff that we watched watched to tell me that Reggie Bush wasn't the heisman trophy winner. You know you could tell me that all you want but I watched that season. Do you know what I mean. So I'm not fully the Internet. I don't think that changes anything. That doesn't take their memory away from me. I think you've just got a penalize the organization but I I'm not into taking championships

Dusty Baker hired to manage the Astros
"Bob Nightingale of USA Today is reporting that the Houston Astros going to choose dusty Baker the longtime major league manager to manage. Houston that J.. Hinch was fired in the wake of the cheating scandal. The Astros have probably been the most analytically committed team in baseball. This report is true. What do you think of this higher? We'll Tony I'm not surprised. Christ by the higher I told you come to be downing Houston dusty. Baker was going to get this job and the Houston Astros have a lot of stuff take care of and one of them is sort of whether they want to acknowledge it or not getting back in the good graces of baseball dusty Baker is not some analytics nerd. Who wants to win win at all costs and has no conscience dusty? Baker played baseball managed baseball. He doesn't need the Houston. Astros would be great if he can win you the whole thing. But the Houston Astros in a bill. In in the in the need to rehabilitate themselves in their franchise reputation they need dusty baker and dusty Baker. It was the man for this job the moment somebody got to him and said dusty. Are you interested so as you know I like. I think he's a major league manager and I was upset when the national said. We're done with you but I can't be too critical because they're so wonder world series but here's what dusty Baker is he's a player's guy. He's my wii age so he's seen a lot of baseball. The Astros are going to be booed everywhere they go. I believe opposing Pitcher is gonNA throw with players. I believe what they need. Most of the manager is someone who is relentless positive Iraq relentlessly positive dusty dusty Baker is. It's not it's not that I think that tactically. He's the right choice is that I think emotionally. He's the right choice. 'cause I don't I think Houston is going to withdraw. The players. Get into shell dust. They say they're not well. Then it started yet. It hasn't started yet. I Love Day are a study. I mean there's usually bear watching as so really good team. They are and what what they needed to manage. A now is just keep the train on the track. You know we can do this as a radically different approach and lead I like it for VAT on field group. Think this will work. I do I again. He's a very positive and they're gonNA feel attacked on all sides. You're so by the way I'm glad he's getting this chick.

"Twenty percent of you I folks. Let's start looking better when we go out the night I we're going to go watch the Yankees at a bar or wearing some untuckit church. Want to look presentable like the way we should not when you're wearing buttoned-down that don't don't deserve to be on Tuck. UNTUCKIT does go by UNTUCKIT. Now let's go some deals all right so the first one is for read right. They're having a say myself. Great Work Ian Embedding. WHO said this question has been circulating relating? Who will have an easier? Time getting hired after their suspensions over hinch or Leno am I guess throw core in their two zero. I don't think any of them have a chance I think now may because he could get a role where he's not the front facing man. Leave your hiring agencies your manner. He's sort of like the face or whatever wirthlin how could get some back front off behind the scenes role that you don't even know like one. That was the fucking assistant. Whatever here is helping being anyone knowing what he's really doing right so I think if I don't think any of them get hired again but the odds are highest for for now? I think that rat bastard all right. The next one's from Ben Russell Twenty five he said are the Astros still the biggest threat to the Yankees in the Al.. Or is it another team now like the twins White SOx etc fucking Whoever the fuck whoever that is the white sox I want US Peoria this man Kate the White Sox Oh Dallas our Kyko are you fucking kidding me? TJ Did you say that fucking white sox you stupid long Tj Not GonNa be good just his face it you stink. You GotTa fucking play you stupid assholes. There I ask them. It'll be the astros still you fucking white sox it'd be a bigger bigger threats. And he said Oh man and white sox all right man you go hitless again in the playoffs. Great like I did not play. Well no no. He was so bad every time. It you just didn't use them to get. Who else did the white sox get? Cash Russia whatever. Six dollar relief pitcher. That's not doing any sticks. They keep putting these graphics of the guys that they have locked up the next day the best people deep or are you know camera Tish. Obviously he's the best shooter in practice. He is unbelievable. These white sox guys keep taking videos of them in the batting cage. It's called batting practice. I could look sick in batting practice. You stupid fucks us because we know them. And you've had them in your system for ten years you're loses this and you're gonNA stink fucking white sox until I do stuff of white socks over. It was unexpected nature and here all I see either disliked. The whiteside exactly known cares but I just know office and how there's any ever talked about. There shouldn't be any talk Chuck Sean. I love the projections. They showed a one through nine projection lineup. Everyone's over twenty five home runs. What are we talking about? What do you mean would you mean it always? WHO's doing it? Yeah they're just happy because they signed player things they've just been missing out on everybody the fact that they got like a few people even though none of them are a-listers. It's like what would they have done if they got Machado last year. Like throwing a parade in. I actually know the definitely would have but I. It's almost they signed for signing his fucking fucking brother-in-law basically well. Yeah we got him now. Finally got because family close family kidnapped. It was a casualty side to the cubs got GRONDAHL. They give them they they give you eighty million dollars awesome. He's an average catcher next one's from Jersey Astros by the way I don't have clear the ashes still twins made the twins are a joke. You can't take it so we don't use ever never sleep on the race for sure. Yeah the razor and the angels one eighty game seven days as you never know. I put the reason as of the same team to me. It's like not. I won't surprise me if they go out and have one of those random years where they win one hundred games but also they just suck and went seventy five also and and the twins are GonNa they're gonNA make the wildcard game and loose. Let's do the Texans of the or they might win. The division can't take them seriously is worse especially last year last year they went in all day at the most runs by one. They got the basic carbon copy. Yankees Yankees is really what he fucking scares. Yeah that's a nice signing there. They've come on Oh. I don't think they're pitching on Arabic terrified of their pitcher so Next one is from Mike he said. What are your thoughts on the Yankees over under season win? Total being one on one and a half for a team mccomb. We'll be playing with an absolute fuck. You revenge attitude all season. I feel like this is disrespectful. Should be one fifteen minimum. I mean you know I liked. I liked the conference at one fifteen. I'm in Yeah I think there are always conservative. I really put that number so high. It's the highest. Yeah Yeah you also gotta think like the beat the orioles seventeen fucking times last seventeen into right like I know the orioles abandoned inkster good. But it's going to be tough to again. beat him. Seventeen time the devil's advocate version of that is that they had some injuries last year. They're not gonNA injuries this year right but they also they dominate the raise. There's a lot of cheese would again. Yeah I'd better team. They're going to say I will take the vertical but I don't think it's crazy that that's what it is no. I think it's a very very good number. I think they're going to win. One five to one zero eight two. Yeah so what's the safer bet for from fan lauds over the enke's one on one and a half or under red SOx eight and a half over over there just because they do mookie and price and they have a few. You're young you know they still have bogart's endeavors sticking hit by socks line by the way is eighty three and a half. That is a pretty good over though. fucking eighty three seventy nine. I could like at least forty seven fucking loses anti the white Sox podcast. I love it Morris said possible additional punishment and. It'll be a hinge and Cora. They should have to pitch batting practice to judge in Stanton all season without the protective net. He's just die by murder. I think one shot done hundred and twenty miles off the bat. Yeah I said Hint. You would just be their D. H.. Next year for every game is bad for them. Just put them in the field ball head to head. You just expose Rosa. That would be so funny. I mean it would never happen. But just imagine a world where that did or like Magic to get to Throw five strikes that are three strikes. Jesus is this. The juicy fights blog about mookie being the coach and a player didn't read it. But I I saw the headline to fucking love. I I would love this. Aaron judge as the coach fucking his thinking behind it is that they can pay the manager. Wherever the fuck you exactly genius stuck in why? I probably should look into that Little Jackie Moon situation play. Smith plays what else to more. This one's from Kenny. Who Do you suspect to be dark? Horse forced to challenge the Yankees this year. The white sox now. I think the Blue Jays think there'll be a legit contender but I think they'll give the linke's fits and see if they can figure out pitching maybe we'll they got where you think maybe add one more per mole more peace or something. Maybe they have a few guys coming up in the minors. They don't know about but they're hitting is terrifying terrifying anytime you face that those two are like six. It's like five dead for the most part. Their farm system is like here like all of the yours are like was there big piece kid all original sakes. I got hit off him in Highschool but Anthony K valley fucking at the mets now to the Blue Jays. Strom India yes. You're going to hit off got hit from one. Nothing one hitter yet. I Ju you took you got you. Shut them out. Shut them out and got hit. Why aren't you WANNA come sick? Bluejays ask you say I will. He's got sandwich named after my place while Avid Sandwich I got hit. Doesn't know it's alright. Much does sound like it could be nice sloppy sandwich which sandwich much barbecue ranch baking you put. No losses sandwich named after me to Delhi and then they just never came through with in the city. The Sandwich there is like a Tommy smokes rap in Missouri. I think it has no connection. Can't Cedar Rapids Michigan. This that's no and there's just no way no but I would say it's it's like when Nebraska has the rat dog play. I know it's not for me. I always just pretend yeah. 'cause who else says rattled even though it's like a band or something. So what does your sandwich. You just named sauces chicken in Beijing approach sauce queue so every condiment. You've ever watched friends. You know the moist maker Sandwich. You should just rebrand that Turkey thanksgiving Leftover Sandwich and you dip the bread in gravy. So that's what you just do that and I don't like what sandwiches five sauces on a Santa kohl-kok Sandwich. Coal Coats are wet. Oh Baloney or a Turkey. which is Loni Slimy it's wet? Yeah Slimy wet. The Sandwich that I was it was a talented Deli. I was going to have prosciutto soup. Assad Mozzarell- lettuce tomato oil and vinegar on while you're talking like you. You said that sandwich to say those words like I don't even know what you're talking about. What's the thing we get at a when we go for lunch that one place bucket brock? It Up Taught Rob Brcko. Yeah yeah definitely not covered. It's with a little with a little modern odd. It's not my renard mud your design a true Italian you pronounce Marinara Murad. Modern Fuck you talking about a little. Oh where's the modern. It's on the stove. Why did you say still I honest stove showing like Frankie Burley's dad or something like China the modern out Italian gamut which is Calamar I know is that's definitely not? Is it see now if I ever at my dinner table used Coca Cola MoD modern it. I'm so sorry for Last ones from Aaron gladder said big fair show would you guys rather see the Astros finished last in division or make AOL only to get swept by the Yankees which his better the assuming the Yankees make the world series in both Yankees. I want to take out absolutely O'Brien destroy them in the and get revenge and just embarrass I them and be like all the other reason they could be. These pressures was blatantly cheating. There's nothing been anyone total that you would choose over that the Astros like twenty six wins. Oh now if they were just so exposed that they couldn't play the sport of baseball the right way. Oh Yeah I mean if they see Lilly one forty games right couldn't hit off. Let's that is not knowing forty one ten twenty two notes. The I'd rather be way worse because they don't know what pitcher Scott Right if they set the record for being the worst first team in baseball. That's the Beth wintel love that. Oh my God like the orioles finishing baron. That'd be fantastic. All right so I I was thinking about this before. I don't know do you know we're need of helium. Yes I've written a blog about that. Yeah we came into balloons anymore. Yeah so only. Helium Jews for BLIMPS and balloons But I think that's the only thing he leaves us for that camp. I can't be true. Yeah that's so. Periodic could see like bombs regard hydrogen. H There's some helium now. The only reason why I think we're in need is because people know that we could socket Tuck it and have voices. I only reason why I think people are getting it..

"Folks let's get together and let's let's start having better sex with Roman Business Yeah it'd it'd be nice Moving on Aaron judge. He's just the best so clearly he was told the Yankees were told to not talk about any of this the public while investors investigations going on in. That's totally smart. That's totally fair. Aaron Judge didn't say a word just we did he just deleted his his Jose altuve. MVP congratulations post. I love that Mov- also like so him. Like Labor tweeted something to write and I also think the Yankees I mean. I guess I shouldn't say this because we just talked about other things Alexkor said but I feel like the Yankees in the moment. They wouldn't be acting like this if they also had a body buried big us. No exact like it would be the idiotic and like complaining Severino. Yeah like it's insane. Yeah this right so so right. Why would they wouldn't be that so so right but I because I walked into a cave seen Pfizer's guys are so fucked? I just don't see how that's possible if they're acting like the way they are on social. That's just two people that are hoping we are fucked grasping for straws. All that it's nice to see like the Yankees players have personalities. Aaron judge's come into his own a little bit so when the first news broke he tweeted three thinking face emojis because wait what. Oh no sorry. That's what it was he said. Wait what and I don't think I've ever seen him coach waiting. His twitter for the longest time was just just promotional stuff and all that which is totally fine. I think I think most of the players are having on instagram. fucking charity right but it looks good on twitter this into some have one fucking tweet for me. Agent wrote data. Yeah exactly. That's how that felt I. I think an instagram. They're more themselves. I don't think the Yankees really restrict them on Instagram as much they. Can you know on twitter. They don't have any trevor bowers on their twitter. So you could avid flyer with like on twitter instagram. Just in general. Yes have you trevor. I been doing on twitter at guy. He's going he's going at mccullers. mccullers mccollum McHugh. He hasn't key post videos. He ask Siri what hypocrites means quotes a funny fucking guy. I think he's actually going to be in the office coming up to us to be cool. Maybe we'll maybe we'll have someone talk to him But the judge tweeting the instagram perfect troll move well not even a troll move. Just a petty move. Yeah it's a good petty he deserved that. VP in the first place. Even with like I think the only real stat that they had on him was batting average. And that's like time in our case that these days every other step wore. Opiates all that judge blue by him in that so he deserved that. MVP Classic Yankees bias. But now I liked it. He's he's he's pissed off. I like that Averages Archaic Stat. Well it's not when digital may here we talk about his I. I know it's like hey it matters. I think it you go one for three three three three whole seasonal other Oprah in this case all his other stats. Were better. So we're talking about that. Yes yes batting average. There's some forgot who out there. It was someone who maybe it was voight now void. There was someone who is like asked to look at my batting average it gets like one of my battery which is high. It's always a bad thing of high batting average. No right I mean we saw it this year with the Yankees as opposed to them in two thousand eighteen. You saw it with the Red Sox in two thousand eighteen although they might had been cheating but like putting the ball in play matters this case literally like best ever. Do it never seen anyone better Yeah so I mean this is all this is all just is fantastic and as the Anti Martino tweet. There's no Yankee investigation. which is all good for now? I think Jack her even said like Silences great great or something like that. He had a weird. What's their cryptic tweet looking to say but this is all great nice having the best office? It's the this is the best offseason lie if I told you in October when he today he's got the day after Yankees got eliminated from the playoffs. This would happen. You would literally think you would have me arrested. I was like you're actually out of your mind Garrett Cole and it's like Oh you're gonna get care call and like the other teams are GonNa get worse. Yeah to find out they'd be implicated in the biggest baseball cheating scandal handle. That doesn't happen in baseball baseball off seasons usually like quiet like they're usually one big signing at user the Yankees and the dodgers are like one of them and then everyone everyone does dying is awesome makes. WHO's having like a better off season? The white sox now I mean I mean I mean like yeah but other employers like cheating signing Donaldson that was that was good. I don't know what do they know. Aussies forgot colleagues. It was up shit. Dammit Oh God you're left with the twins halfway dodgers. The dodgers forgot the off-season have like literally just forgot. Yeah I mean the Yankees Map Lake. Eric Cressey. They brought Gardner back. Everyone's everyone's arbitration we didn't take anyone arbitration court. That was cool. I didn't have that on the run for God because we're so you know into this us in the scandal thing but Aaron judge got a point five and they'll be so fuck that like Aaron judge gets paid eight point five million. You know that's just how it works. Works condos right. But it shouldn't work like that. He's going to get as big payday one day for sure there has to be a time where you're like. NFL players ars they're under rookie contracts NBA for a little bit. Not As long as based in baseball six years. Become a free agent in baseball. That's insanity yeah but baseball really can't complain about contracts right the thing is if you can make it through six years and you're not good you're GonNa have all the money you want in the world but it's so hard. Baseball is the hardest sport in the world to be that jacket for six users so difficult. We see Labour tours do well. That's like one of the best players in the world. There are plenty of people who have had one good year and it falls off. I feel bad for voice. He's got to do it for a few more. We're used even come close to being a free agent and you know he's already he. He had a late start. Where like he cracks in the baseball and all that all sucks but judge gets his eight point five which I think was a two million more than when he was slaughtered for? That's good you keep happy by giving him a bonus that he wasn't expected Jira Shelhah goes for making five hundred two point five nice for him touch fantastic that guy was like food afterthought two years ago now he's making two million and you know if he puts it the same. I think I saw something where he's fan graphs number if you like put his the stats. Last year to money. He plays like twenty million dollars season. And now we got him for two point five week darvish rations so stupid and all this stuff. Yeah it's good that we didn't. I thought for sure they were gonNA take Gary Sanchez. Arbitration Court like they did with Dell and where basically Randy lavine blamed him for them losing in the playoffs. WHO's just or not making the playoffs? So mean to say in court at that point had way less as flaws than Gary like our you could fuck in the ball out. They just literally the Lord be like Gary Sanchez. What position do you play Catcher catcher? Why don't you cash? Yeah Dame got me a million dollars you lost four really as foucault amid. It's just like your team so well you're not worth what you think. You are surprised if he doesn't sour more relationships as far as we don't get more stories about Delon and I think it does like similar similar story. Yeah the only thing I really heard is dylan. Maybe it's just so Yankee centered. But I don't think I've ever heard a story like Dylan's should keep it in house like of how bad it really is like. I don't know if they want more money the next year they tried not to really fuck it up even more. Yeah that's probably true. Moving on so judge had his instagram thing. The Stat on Yankees have maybe the best Promo night giveaway coming up and I don't really know who governs them like. Just how oversee that and green light that you think how green. So we're we're talking about there. I don't know if he's specifically the Yankees own them so ripe of different. We're like who actually usually runs the team and all that I know that But they're doing in September their point the Astros Minor League affiliate and they're doing many garbage can give away the first five hundred people get a mini garbage. Can that is so fucking good and timber those in September fucking crazy. What month is it yet? I mean that's just the end of the year. Yeah I thought it was it was. That's probably the only time astros affiliate at home. It's when they oh okay. I know it's just so far for Malik. I know their seasons start till June usually thought it was September third could be. I'm not saying it is September thirty. I'm just saying it's like oh just seems like by then it's going to be made it will always linger dot. You do it early. I was looking ahead for the Yankees schedule With the Astros coming up so they only play obviously they play their and they play here. They come here. I want to say in. May We go there. Notice sorry is the correct. There's a September up. No sorry. It's a big we go to Houston in May teach you look at but I know that we play them at the stadium for four games in September and it's like ten days before the season ends so the brawl is going to happen. What I just Swisher was earlier? Well the BRA is going to happen in. May you know they're gonNA fight some. There's GonNa be some sort of fight awesome and they think. Oh Yeah. Darren Davao happening more in Yankee stadium. But that's not going to have what ten days ago with people get suspended and all that but before and plus like they could be who knows if someone's competing with them to the division province Harpole Arkell factor to now September twenty first through twenty four home Monday through Thursday. The road wants Astros one in Houston and may yeah may okay so oh I think that pencil that mark counter mark that inner count because there might be a real gimme Garrett Cole throwing it Alex Bregman or Jose first first pitch thrown out. Yeah not employ team. I'm GonNa hit you fucking skull. Well I had. I hate these guys too much protection protection. You gotta go straight by back or wrist shadow. Yeah that's the trick.

"So it's the gap down that first time porch ten dollars off can't beat that at all. Aj hinch statement. Now he's trying to say that yeah. He knew what was going on their reports that he broke monitors because he was so against what was going on. I've had enough of this. I'm going to break them. Honor what the manager the team. You could easily stopped it. You went through these smut press conferences. You ruined lives. Baseball careers were ruined. Because the Astros did this. That's part of why Mike Fires was so against all this and the whistle blower because he felt bad he was seeing other young players coming up who grind to get this moment and then they will get absolutely destroyed by Astro. Said is because they knew a pitchers coming. You were behind all that. Don't I'll try and play this ship and the car that like. Oh I actually have felt bad for people and all this I tried to break Meyerson Nano no no no. No you're SMUG asshole. You deserve this punishment deserved rotten. Hell no was fucking hate. Aj hinch so much that guy would you say oh. Let's get to the bigger. You're part of this outscore. We haven't talked about excoriate alice core was the ringleader. It says to even think like hire someone. Oh you should know that when you're interviewing someone like you know to cheat look to you know I know there are like the punishment wasn't because anything he did with the Red Sox but to think that he was the ringleader of this in two thousand seventeen player driven except for core right that he was like Porta mastermind behind it won the world series and then becomes the manager under the red sox where he's fully calling all the shots they went one hundred eight games and a world series to think. Maybe you know something's especially but you put fucking two. You went to together. Speculate May non-speculative puckish. Maybe there are some shady dealings going quite possible. But he's stomach. The Earth I was I like a week ago. This found sounds very what's Davey but I said out loud the last couple days but I heard a week ago that he was getting three years and I to that person who texted me. I'll laughed in their face and said at least make it up. Make make closer year. If you're going to like you know guess this turns out might just be three years. Might be a lifetime Ben even worse than three years so he was behind everything and I think made you. Baseball's pissed off that it continued in some aspect in Boston and they were just like yeah. You're a double violator here. And you are the ringleader here. Yeah no shit. You're GonNa get the worst penalty possible here and the red sox getting punished for it and it's fantastic so I actually read this morning. What it was some nice stuff? Yeah yeah I read it last night and you're trying to become okay a little bit of Literate Shit That didn't work out well but I was reading some stuff stuff. Everyone's like oh this really does suck. He's such a good guy like he comes into these locker rooms and all the players love him. Yeah no fucking Shit. He's cheating for him. Yeah he's he's the one from a to seventy hitter fucking three. He's telling me to. I would love to. Yeah he's telling you WANNA fastballs come on his slider. Obviously he's a great Players coach you fucking morons. You have to be an asshole to be red SOx fan saying this sucks. I mean. He's a fucking cheater socks all. Yeah because they're also should have known that he was a cheater tell who's a cheetah right away. It's just embarrassing. No one liked the Yankees. It's just we're class. I mean age a We'll just class. It's all I got the nerve on this motherfucker to when they shelled Severino and he says that Equality Star and all that like the biggest fucking yes exactly and people are like all hubs your video that you tweeted is going to come back to get you and all that I don't see I don't see that happening like you're not firing anyone. The Yankees core got fire because of the Astros hits the Astros. That's not gonNA happen the Yankees I need to compliment you ever but your shoulders moved pretty well in rhythm. Everyone bites the dust video. Oh talking to you. The hips gyn. You're on crack and all that so I need them so the first time I watched the video I hadn't have sound on and I was like. Oh this could be bad but then to the music. It wasn't bad I'll give you that. It was a good timely video and I like you come in to scream like would you like such a weasel. It was perfect. We're GONNA die. I is a little excessive. You always. You're a die of big wish. I'm deathly yeah like I'm usually like three weeks with the mumps. Then then the measles held die similar implications worse. Because you're saying the dies going to hell Iraq there for eternity hinch. Hell passes making the video. My roommate walked in I just it was just like what's going on Eddie as the flu. It's disaster so yeah I'm pumped a chorus gone and people Dave Dave is very his really care about this he. He's still along with the Patriots. I think the Patriots still number one for him and he seems to think that the manager in baseball isn't that's not going to change much like they'll just find a new guy in a win. I think that's wrong. I think the city of Boston loved outscore. Like this is GonNa crop. US is is very very upset. That's good yeah I mean fantastic. So where do you. We're debating this. Where do you think? Baseball manager sits in importance of coaches in all sports. So we'll go hockey. Allow much much of a hockey hockey. They're firing everyone know what's up with that. Vegas nicest fired their coach today. I know baseball podcast. But they're just everyone's getting fired that devils fired everybody. Jeez I don't know what's happening there. Okay hockey I don't have we say football coach by for like Yeah Light Years Ahead. Because they're the handed strategy based on basketball or close. That was the real debate and I think it's still basketball over that because there's so many plays and you have to do it but it's also like if you have star players like I was Dave's argument Frankie's argument Brian Basketball's last. I mean they'll do shit yet but I mean you could say a baseball manager. I mean they all the analytics I think baseball like just pl- knowing the gay like there's so much behind the scenes stuff that people have no idea about about baseball basketball basketball's this like hey give the ball of fucking Lebron give it to yawn. That's all I have to do baseball. They they have to archers there are please plays yes domes. My argument for nothing a basement which is the most important is because like new wave analytics. Where like they have a team tells them? And what's the right move next. Like for most managed affect the power of the manager is the lowest. It's ever been in terms of what you can do in a game. It's still important from the rally. The troops and booed was so. Oh good at that last year like keeping everyone's spirits up and you have team chemistry. That's all huge manager but in terms of like platelet pitching change all that I feel like it's all orchestrated by the Alex team. Yeah with the Yankees. At least that's the story out there. I think baseball manager is most important thing is sort of like being almost like a guidance. Literally just being a friend in the right making sure everyone is like feeling good makes her locker room vibes or good being like We've said for the White House press secretary where you're the one that goes answers. I like other people's decisions basically to the media So I it's it's diff- but then you can say a basketball coach. Also ask the massage egos of like NBA superstar. So I still think baseball's more just like like they're obviously baseball. Seems there's giving out the lineup card and then it's obvious when the pitcher's doing bad take him out but there's behind the scenes of pitching like a pitching matchups happening like lefties coming in lefties in the lineup. A bunch of Shit is always this little tedious shit. That and Cora was core was pretty solid that he won't be anymore. He won't be sucks managers. It's beautiful and who they're going to hire. Jason Varitek are attack or whoever is going to be all core in that clubhouse will be they worked. It'd be good anyways next year with you. Know they're they're setup. They refused to get another excuses to dump right. That's that's what I think. He Abraham said they'd like yeah they should just fucking train everyone now and they want him excuse because like yeah. This sucks this star in such trash. I don't know where four and five is. I mean it's sale price Eddie Donahue forefathers of all the his glove is so fucking big I hate that mother fucker things way too big man. You can't be a pitcher truth. That big it's going to be evolved in. Has You judge people on gloves size. Yes okay pitchers have to have small clubs. Okay I'm the only could be more like intimidating to hide the Baltic Take Peta Hill always all lodges all the rich because he puts his elbow in like this to me. Looks like such a the way he the way he doesn't play off. Mantos does a hundred miles an hour. I'm calling pussy. Cause he's amazing Some of the best stuff that. Come out of this Cora his old tweets are so fucking walking. Funny Funny to laugh and I'm not funny to laugh with them In two thousand thirteen he said if you're catcher gives only one sign with a runner. At second bad things will happen happened bad in all caps. I mean that is yeah so perfect Twenty sixteen stealing signs relaying signs getting signs. Not that easy. That is unbelievable. At that the time it was what was the date twenty. Sixteen at the time it was probably true and then he was like Oh wait we gotta salute wait. We just bang a trash rescue crews probably like up all night like man fucking his heart fucking relay signs and shit and then twenty seventeen. He came around found the picture like watching a movie and he he says L. Loud and then all of a sudden dramatic musical background and it's like a time lapse and it's him just bang a trash can like buzzers and all this. It's him and he wakes up in the morning. Goes I figured out how to cheat. Base spoke unbelievable and then one other thing he was asked why he admitted to make the mistake. Sunday this is from Lou Maroni tweet and he said because they asked my players. It's to be honest and responsible so I have to be as well I love. I love his twitter. He's such a five minutes. Governor Tweeden lint. You're not doing. I felt like I was really doing something wrong. I would it would give me..

I'm so happy we're clean and we're better than everybody there so set for the next like you know it's funny. So here's what the bring it all back. Even if like. What are they going to do the Yankees if they find a little bit something calls Beltran is the manager of the mets? I guess if it was twenty eighteen then you have more reprecussions because it will involve boone but the two thousand seventeen gone but my core wasn't fired from the Red Sox for what he did with the with the With the Red Sox he fired with yes well. Usually part of lease ups actually fired. Nobody official report was they mutually early part ways because that was fired him yet they fire Cora and then he was pleased to say mutual ways. You can't fire them right now for because no no penalties been too right. So it's twice mutually like you could fire them. No I know it's like why would you fire them right right right. Yeah that's why I'm usually agree. So get more into it hinch and low now where suspended than fire and then the the statements these fucking the Era Ghent assholes put out. Were unbelievable. The first one is Lou now the GM he said he takes full responsibility for everything but he's not a cheater. So what does that mean. What are we talking about what are you what do you mean you to force? We love bigger. It's just so regis like you like you cheat on your girlfriend. Yeah I I. I'll accept the rumors but I didn't do. It might've fucked up but I'll accept them. What are you talking about? Man fucking moron. Yeah I think maybe what he's trying to say is like it's my responsibility because I oversee the team but like I'm not the one who installed the fucking cameras. Maybe it's your you were part of the general manager. Brian Cashman with everything. That's going on that team. It's like right. Jim didn't know and it just shows the report like it was all player run by. Aj hinch but with the exception court think that Aj hinch and Lonzo and maybe up to Jim Crane like yeah. He literally like Akito. He was being the bigger man situation taking all the blame but also throwing everyone on the bus. It wasn't if you're GONNA do an apology for anything in life. Just accept all the fucking blame like once you start being like you know. I'm sorry but that's unlikely. I've learned that the hardest way with the fucking Mesquite thing now the worst Oh so hey.

I well I got to go got health. This isn't cool. No it's really not if nothing if no one tells me something's wrong nothing's wrong so here's why I really went. I one day I the perfect person I know. At least I know it i. I've had perfect questrom. Eat like absolute dog shit so I kinda just want to hear it again that I've perfect cholesterol and just laughing everyone's face that's like twenty six. Yeah like the way. I ain't problem the way. My sister said high cholesterol flake five years. She's like twenty three twenty two years just the worst terrible person. Yes so one of the doctor. I have the exact opposite of you can pay at all times. It took me twenty-five campeador times. Do I took me twenty five minutes to Penacook not any time too. I just couldn't go because I want before. I heard them talking outside the door. Like yeah he went in there. Maybe left or something. Like Gosh it. I'm just like they're like I need to get to work like I need to just eventually whatever because you don't want to you got to stop. Up Yeah and it's so the command. Maybe not one of my talents. I I wish I just don't pee before and like you know you have to go and then but I I get stage fright sometimes sometimes so yeah so whatever we'll find. I think the results come back like Friday. Whenever we'll see what have we will read them live on on the short course? It'd be a lot of fun for me. I'm sure the biggest news obviously really cool. If you had like a disease that like we knew like gave you exactly like eight months to live. There'll be like we just ride out like the whole season knowing that like you're going to diet the the Yankees have to win for right and like the podcast go so up. And then meantime you've just take over and die. Maybe like the day before game seven. Every time I come come on. It's like it's always morbid and it's like well if hubs dies for the Yankees here then emotion communist take the show to new limits. What you WANNA win? Yeah I mean if you told me I could go out that way and November is like the day like like November the day after the parade. Now it's I can't enjoy the day they win. The world discuss this. They're going to carry your ashes in an urn on the parade flow right. Well that's all right. That's that's cool. You get to go out you die going going out the night they win the world series. No guys the morning of couse or like in the seventh inning of the the Attorney General. Did that would be so mean if it was game seven. They were down five in like the seventh inning. And I died and I got the locker room. Maybe you die at the stadium. Healing void finds out and he tells guy let's we gotta we gotta windows one for by the way boy voice work. Did you see that. He's a fucking Tuck in hamlet. Fuck is he doing. These should exchange routines me. Voy Cressey is probably going to be like all right. Let's let's relaxed like laughter. Saying it's like when you have so much muscle kind of an issue and it's funny thing earlier in the day him and talk and we're going at each other instagram because talking positively custody of him running and avoids they got put some meat on those bones. Whatever and he goes now and I gotTa Keep Forum? I can't be running like you and then just put those are looks like it's the size of this fucking table Apple Goddamn elephant guy. I can't wait for baseball but would you have big news. Finally we've been talking about the Astros for so long investigation. The Red Sox getting involved all that the MLB came down their punishments are here. They're not the craziest thing in the world. That's kind of what we expected because they can only do so much but Aj hinch that rat fucking scumbag suit so this muggy smokey's purchase smug used the word. Whatever smokey's personnel gets the world most smug so one of the worst people ever exist J.? Hinch God no chance at smuggles snuggie. No I think it's I think it'd be most smaller guest's now smuggled I mean he's the one on the computer rigging rigging Goddamn fucking rutgers. Rutgers Education Show Jj Hinson suspended Jeff Jeff Luna the GM. He suspended for a year. The Astros like an hour later Jim creams like what they're just fired. There's a conspiracy which I think it's kind of true that major league baseball rob Manfred told crane. Hey to save face as we're all GONNA suspend them a year and you're just gonNA come over and fire them otherwise we'd just lifetime ban no and make make a look where she at least it looks like you have some sort of control with the organization and we're going to say that you didn't know anything was going on all that little conspiracy owners and the commissioner. Obviously you know they worked together so you know what fuck over the owner. So that's that's a conspiracy there but they're gone. Aj Hinch I. Don't they ever get a job again. Do you jog again. I don't I can't I don't think I mean how may get a front office role in like a low position just like advisor. Actually no I just can't see Jersey no reason to push it. Yeah I agree on top of it. Five Dr Find who gives a fuck of. You're finding a baseball team unless it's the razor athletics who can't Dr Soda Machines during the season and they need every dollar they can. But I don't need Astros Five Kim and that's the maximum. They made it clear. You cannot find a team any more than that but what I would have done is doc their international signing bonus. Money just have no John Is. That's where the Yankees drive now. It's like yeah. They make a draft picks here and they're still but they're they're Dominican Republic. Signings are Jason biggest best best player the history of sports and they got hit the Marino. Gary Yeah the list goes on and on and on of Kashmir's doing he doesn't really focus on a draft or they definitely focus draft but he is very in tune with the Dominican signings. And getting the you know. He always makes many trades during the year. Like why did you that so we got international signing bonus money and its stockpile stockpiles. I would have just taken that away from the Astros that I think would actually have hurt won the fine. That does nothing to me I would I would have done. I would've fucked with their luxury tax like lower all their luxury tax threat threshold so like the punishment that you know a team gets two hundred million they get one hundred twenty payrolls. Oh Yeah you're right you have to cut payroll or pay huge luxury tax fund high finest five million Team yet the fuck design. What is that too? That's literally twenty dollars else with them. Unless you're like the raise as in the US is very poor. Yeah I didn't get that. And then they also docked first and second pick next two years which I five round pick six five five years something drastic but that will hurt because first and second round picks like that's pretty much how they stay built this team in the first place. They just finished last every year and they got the number pick for five years and eventually turned into springer and Bregman in Korea. And all these guys so trash trash bags but so yeah is. Is it enough. No should they kate title for sure if they had any integrity that give back their rings and all that But I think the stench this is what I I was saying punishments whatever. I'm glad edgy hitches out of baseball guys fucked blows but for early SMUG fucking. Oh my Gosh Kim Sang. It's it's a joke. He's laughing at people the whistling and all that you just did it all it was. You were hiding in plain sight but I think the stench of cheating like Alex Bregman to me can't brag about being a world series champion if it's only that world series to me on this. I kind of be okay if we cheated in one. I don't think it's right. I think it's like it's sad for baseball classics. We wouldn't do that but if you already did. Not on anyone in the MOLENAAR. Dario always have those memories of like that. But it's annoying for like I like to look back. It's like everyone says saying strikes. You don't want that world series you want like whatever ever A. We've we were the best especially when it's the Yankees and everyone hates the come out. The Way I explained on on k when the punishments came out is that Teams like the mets. The Astros the time had one you know like those teams are desperate that sheet this way and those fans to me. Okay if she all you want all that pop up all the I don't really fucking bother me too much but It's the I don't if you're that type of fan shirt you want to do whatever you can to win but the Yankees. They're you're fucking world series favorite every single year. They don't need to do to this extent now like we'll get into later. We're like the allegation. Yankees wouldn't shock me if they come came out and they do it because I'm sure they're everyone's pointing fingers like the Red Sox always doing like. Oh we did it but they definitely did a two. I could see something like the Yankees defined a little bit of money because because they use the video room illegally. One time you know a few times but there's no hickeys anything. The Astros did as I don't get why like jared like sailing. Just wait for the Yankees Yankees. You don't think they'd come after the Yankees versus people after because they know the Astros and red sox are. NOBODY'S A fucking bigger headline than the skis. Yes it's it's like way harder and faster if they could get out in front of the Yankees the Yankees on a team that they would like push the side and ignore like be like take the number one team. It's just I think saying to me. I mean there's a part of me that's very much afraid. The other shoes drop because this has been the most unbelievable off-season can you get Garrett. Cole.

"Around in arizona to this one is that he feels a lot more confident in his decisions because if feels he's making them as himself and rather rather than some perception of what a manager should be now i know you mentioned there was more i mean you said like i told you so tone i know that's more confidence but hinges wife erin in her you tell that brief story near the end about her unwillingness to sort of be recognized when houston astros love was at fever pitch and it seems like another key part of this psychological puzzle that works how important is staying grounded in her ability to keep them grounded to their continued success i think it's vital and i and i you know it's funny because when they first met he was they were on a on a arranged date that friends hook them up together and he was a aaa guy with the as and his you know his big his big money line was i'm going to be in the big leagues next year and you know her response was i guess that sounds great but what is that because she had no idea about baseball she didn't grow up she grew up in a family of girls and she grew up without that you know without the connection to to baseball or or really sports obviously that's changed quite a bit but yeah that was that was part of of what sort of grounded him and i would assume appealed to him about her and and likewise is that they were very different they had different takes on things and and different viewpoints of of what you know what what life was all about at that time and and obviously she's become much more knowledgeable about baseball and and and i think that it also it also works in his favor that when he goes home that's not what they always talk about so so yeah it's it is it's an interesting dynamic and and actually as a sidelight i think it's one that we don't give as much maybe as much attention to in sports as as journalists i think the i think the husband and wife dynamic i went into it last year with the dantonio and houston and and now the hinch is and i think it's something that that really has an impact on how these guys operate a lot more than than maybe we're used to.

"Took to succeed change because of his own failure and i find that to be a prevailing theme among in aj's life as well because i think the fact that he understood just how good that you had to be to really make it was one factor in his ability to relate to players to understand players and you know i also think it's part of what drives him a big part of what drives him is that failure he he didn't he didn't succeed as a player as as he says sort of riley i will put my amateur career up against anybody's you know but that's sort of that's a little bit of a pyrrhic victory for him and i think that that what he's driven by now is the idea that he can achieve as a manager perhaps some things that he failed to achieve a player does this perseverance or you're like his gut instinct that like i always i always knew the game does that change you feel now that he is a world series champion embolden him or frighten him i guess well i i caught a little bit of a of a not an i told you so but you know a little bit of indication in his tone and and he's he's justified in having that you know is right and i think it's you know it's something that that he's definitely earned and you know i think i think it's sort of emboldened him a little bit i think it's it's provided some validation in his mind that you know what i was i was on the right path and i knew that that i could do this and it didn't matter that i didn't coach in the minor leagues or i never you know i never would have on the bench as a as a hitting coach or a bench coach and you know i think now the world of major league baseball has changed along with it there's there's been more of an understanding that that the wall between the front office in the manager's office has been broken down some and i think that it's made the it's made the game a friendly replace for someone.
