He's been in different roles in the game and seeing a J. Hinch back this quickly is not a surprise.

"Let me see I'm going to keep you in to give up a hit, and then you know that I know that and then we we will partways the mound but until then. I mean admittedly Dan he had just given up ahead. Okay, right? Yes. Like like Austin Martins had hit the last pitchy through which was the ninety four point three mile per hour fastball, which was his lowest of the night up the middle. You Know Blake Snell had been sitting at ninety six all night. Now I I'm I'd like to think I'm smart enough not to base my analysis of a player on a single pitch that. He threw Blake's could've come out and throw on the next one at ninety seven for all I know you know the velocity on his off speed pitches in that inning those far had been consistent with the other ones that the movie had not hit left-handers. He had not hit snow I mean I I I'm not basing this off the results because in the moment I said, you know what I would definitely leave him in there. I. Mean I I will say this and it's incredible that mookie Betts Cory seager and Justin. Turner who been Awesome. All three of them this postseason when over six with six out against lakes.

Los Angeles Dodgers' Justin Turner pulled mid-game during World Series win after positive Covid-19 test
"Win three one, win the series and six, but being completely overshadowed one of the grandest franchises in sports winning the World Series Championship after three decade plus drought is being overshadowed by one player having to leave the game doing a positive corona virus tests and that is just turner but that is also so twenty twenty Jeff Passan is with us this morning Jeff have little more details on what went on that allowed Turner to be on the field for the post game celebration. Hasn't been nothing really allowed him to be on the field. He just chose to be field and nobody was going to drag off after he won the world series. He essentially said I'm going out there and nothing's GonNa stop me I want to pose with the trophy I wanna be with my teammates I want to choose celebrate like somebody WHO's won the world series for the first time and nothing was gonNA stop him and the fallout from that we're GONNA see over the next couple of days hopefully there. Are No other positive corona virus tests on the Los Angeles dodgers. But you know that all remains to be seen as does how they're going to get back to Los Angeles. When they're going to go back, there are a lot of questions still jeff. I don't put this on Justin Turner nor do I put this on the dodgers but how big of an indictment is this on the MLB? They're the ones that pulled him from the game in a there's the one that told him he needs to quarantine. When we see these Leagues Have Championship Games. There are people in the League office who were their security from league offices are there where where is the MLB and all this? Well I think the security tried to stop him from going on there but he you know this is a guy who's covert positive. So is security going to put their hands on him or are they GONNA to? Contract the virus themselves probably not, but they they didn't stop it from going out there and they did remove them and I. Think Rob Manfred got some questions answer about how that happened about what protocols were in place and why they weren't followed. Let me ask you this Jeff Obviously La in second biggest market for Major, League baseball outside of New York in the Yankees Major League Baseball don't want the headline story to be about covert the day after the second biggest market had just won the championship. Course not but I think regardless of weather. Justin Turner went onto the field or not it was going to be pretty interesting part of the story I. Think the fact that he did go back out there makes it a much bigger story now because there are questions, why did he go back out there? How did he go back out there? Who allowed him back out there? How did they not stop it? Jeff what are what are you hearing around the league this early morning about his teammates embracing the fact that he was able to join them for big celebration. GonNa go on up checks message here that I got from general manager. It's A super spreader event on live. TV. Welcome to twenty twenty. And I'M GONNA PULL UP A. Dm I got from an active player isn't here. Now it's nice, but essentially it's What the F. is going on. And that's kind of a thought around baseball and yet. You guys were players let let's put you in that same situation you gotten cut. Seven years ago, and this organization gave you a chance you blossom into an all-star to guy who gets MVP vote someone who's made fifty million dollars somebody who's a leader in the clubhouse and is seen as one of the voices and wants to celebrate this thing that he has worked so hard to celebrate. Would you have gone back out there As a teammate I'm okay with it I don't know if it was me dead had tested positive. I. Don't know because it would had to have happened in the moment and I would have probably responded reacted to my teammates, my coaches in people around me if they was embracing situation most likely I would have joined. But if Jay Wheel for instance is tested positive and he's my teammate I'm. Come on man we me. Yeah this is so subjective Jeff because I'm different I would have wanted to celebrate with my teammates. I just would've wore masks I would have done it differently but. turnage Justin Justin Turner did wear a mask out originally, but there were a couple of instances where cameras got him. He was talking to his wife taking pictures with her gave her a kiss mask was off and he was sitting down on the field for the team picture. To his left was the championship trophy to his right was Dave Roberts the dodgers manager who ten years ago was diagnosed with Hodgkin. Lymphoma. So He's a cancer survivor. He's the person who has a pre existing condition and Justin Turner daybreak spoke for mascots at that point now Dave Roberts told Fox later on I think it was something to the effect that I didn't touch him. but you know he was he was in the same vicinity wasn't for fifteen minutes wasn't close contact defined by CDC but the optics on it as Andrew Freedom and the president of baseball operations says not good.
Justin Turner celebrates Dodgers' World Series-clinching win on field despite mid-game positive COVID-19 test
"Jeff Passan you are somewhere in Arlington Texas right now it is one thirty eight am eastern time. So where exactly are you and I guess what's the last hour of your life been like? I don't know where I am right now Jeff. Passan covers baseball for ESPN and has been unbanned from this podcast after planting the Randy Arosa Raina Song in all of our brains last week. I'm I'm living in I'm living in Corona virus hell right now because I- Pablo I've been covering baseball for seventeen years now I have seen the Boston Red Sox win their first world series eighty, six I've seen the Chicago cubs win their first world series in one, hundred, eight years and I'm not sure that I've seen anything is crazy as what happened after the Los Angeles dodgers won their first world series in thirty two years tonight I mean let's get right into this then because what was the weirdest baseball season ever has ended with the weirdest world series after ever say and there's a great game to dissect here but. It's really hard to bury the lead of Justin, Turner the dodgers star Third Baseman getting pulled some time after his third at bat in that game because he had apparently tested positive for covert, and then a bunch of other stuff happened Jeff and that's where you come in. So what the Hell happened I was scrambling as all of this was going on Pablo because Fox, right after the dodgers won the world series announce on their broadcast that Justin Turner had tested positive for Covid nineteen but we started this show is some breaking news after the completion the game tonight we are informed by Major League baseball that Justin Turner received a positive Cova test. That's why he was removed from the game. We have no other details at this time I get the word that, yes, he had tested positive and the way that the story was told to me was that Major League baseball does one corona virus tests per day four players who were in the bubble and for family members and everybody else. That test from Monday got SENT TO THEIR LAB IN UTAH. The tests were run and they came back late that and Turner's tests was the only one that was inconclusive and as the inconclusive result for Justin, Turner had come back right around that same time the tests from today that had been taken had arrived in Utah. Now, they were getting ready to spin the sample of Justin, Turner from Monday to to retest it and see if there were. Any different results, but they said, forget that test, the one that came in today the results came back in about two hours around the seventh inning at which point a positive had been confirmed and immediately Major League Baseball was informed of this called. The Los Angeles dodgers. It was fed into the dugout and Justin Turner was pulled from the game and told to isolate. Justin Turner. Did Not isolate and that's and that's that's the part Pablo that I think so many people are going to remember from this. The very odd seen on the field where Justin Turner at one point is taking a team picture with the Los Angeles dodgers and he's sitting next to Dave Roberts his manager who also was not wearing a mask can who is a cancer survivor? After he had tested positive for Covid nineteen I, think people out in the world saw that and said what in God's name is going on here. I was one of those people out in the world in my living room like so many others in their living rooms wondering wait a minute. This is a very sophisticated game with many protocols. How did Justin Turner get cleared to be out on the field doing all the things you just mentioned? Justin Turner. Did Not get cleared Justin Turner just wanted to go celebrate with his friends with his teammates with his wife who I saw a picture of him kissing on the field and with all of the people who he won this championship with I had a GM text me as this was going on. And he said, is there a super spreader event going on at the World Series Right now? And it's it's not an unreasonable question to ask now Justin Turner did say in a tweet that he's not feeling any symptoms that he's doing. Alright. So bats great to hear, but it's not like. This is the Los Angeles dodgers team Pablo that hasn't had issues with covid Nineteen
Miami Marlins CEO Derek Jeter: COVID-19 Outbreak Happened Because Players ‘Let Their Guard Down’
"The cardinals of the latest team to suffer a corona virus outbreak resulting in their four game series in Detroit being postponed the I. of course, was the Marlins. Here's Derek jeeter their man in charge describing how his players behaved before all this happened. Oil. Down to on this particular trip was. Guys were around each other got relaxed in. Let Their guard down. There were getting together in groups. They weren't wear masks as as they should have been warned social distancing of the entire traveling party is responsible for not following. The Protocols has instructed that that includes staffs, players. Everyone is seen seen the impact. They've seen their teammates, you'd sick. As I bring the Jeff Passan and Jessica does in Jeeter did go on to say, I think this is important that he had seen as we all have people suggesting that when they were in Atlanta, maybe the guys went out to bars and clubs and all of that strongly refuted that notion he was saying, yes, they got lax in some of their protocols, but it wasn't like they were out there doing things that were like super erase. I just thought that was important to get in. That said Jeff, what does the League's response to the Marlins, and now the cardinals outbreaks tell us about what we should expect for the remainder of this season. Greenie tells us that Major. League Baseball is saying damn the torpedoes full speed ahead, we are going to play through outbreaks and we saw that with the marlins and we're seeing that now with the cardinals, seven players on the cardinals have covid nineteen six staff members as well. Those thirteen people have been sent back to Saint Louis Right now is the cardinals trying to figure out what exactly they are going to do. They played only five games, this season Greeny, and yet the fact that they're missing potentially at least another four games possibly another week of games on top of that. MLB says, okay. This is this is reality if we want to put a baseball season on traveling around the country in two thousand twenty and it is a reality that they are embracing in full because at this point, if there's going to be baseball Greenie they really don't have another choice Jessica. What do you think? I think that honestly, this is something that's going. We're going to see it again in another team I hate saying that, but you get one player and that's what jumps out to me. So much is now seen it with two teams in a week or one player has it, and then the next thing you know you blink and overnight five, six, seven players get it, and I think even talking with, Mike, Chill, the cardinals manager everyone realizing how quickly this can spread and that's something i. feel. Feel like we're gonNA see continued throughout the MLB
MLB commissioner confident league will get through season
"What happened with the Marlins in Philadelphia was just a reminder of how fragile this season is. So here we are. Three games in there's a crisis in Major League Baseball is trying to stage a season in the middle of an escalating prices. We both agree. If it expands, you've got to stop in a country that obviously hasn't been able to corral Corona virus. Any little. One thing consent this season spiraling. It doesn't look good. But MLB commissioner Rob Manfred telling our Karl Ravech there is no reason to quit. Now we are playing, he said. The players need to be better. And I am not a quitter. In general. Manford confident his sport can get through the regular season and postseason without being stopped because he also cautions that there's a chance that not every team might play all 60 games as winning percentage could be used. To determine playoff teams. It's time for straight talk brought to you by straight talk Wireless buster, only ESPN MLB Insider on Darien, Mel, There was really discouragement, you know, after what happened the Marlins last weekend Jeff Passan reporting about the frank conversation between Rob Manfred and Tony Clark. That happened yesterday. And then the news this morning that more cardinals tested positive the dominoes keep falling in the wrong direction. I just did, SportsCenter said. You know if Major League Baseball is a boxer, they just keep taking body blows. And it's some point. Yeah, it's just going to become too much. You think Keith Overman just report a little while ago that MLB is reached out to their broadcast partners and basically told him you need to prepare alternate programming for the week ahead, So yeah, very discouraging, and I got to tell you there's there's a lot of frustration at the team level with people feeling like that, while for the most part There are a lot of players trying to make it work front office is trying to make it work that in some cases that behavior just did not change in a way that was going to best protect all the players. They thought it was a Hail Mary All along, you know the thought was is that there could be some positive tests. And if there was that there could be some isolation. But for example, the major league Baseball testing has been every other day. Well, what happens if a player is infected? The day after he gets tested, and then he's around his teammates. The lag in the test results, which Sean do little. The national spoke to right off the bat where there was concerned that you know with the results just don't come back fast enough to do the isolation in the contact tracing that would be necessary to hold it down Those air reasons why, at the outset of this thing, there was a lot of skepticism that they could actually make it

If you go and look at some of the guys that they've signed whether it was Pablo Sandoval for ninety, five million Ham Ramirez for Eighty, eight million Rouget Sto for seventy, two million. Just you know bust after bus after bus and the fact that that money could and should have gone to retaining mookie Betts When you have a player of his ilk who is elite who, on a hall of Fame Path and who is homegrown? You've gotta do everything you can to keep him. Around and John Lester was not the caliber player that movie batches, but he was a really really good homegrown player, who they low balled in their contract offers and ended up losing into the you. You know eventually to be a trade and then He went to the Chicago cubs instead of going back to Boston, you know. mookie Betts within six months of being traded to the dodgers has a contract extension so red sox fans have every right in the world to be angry that he is not going to be in that uniform for the rest of his career. The Poor Boston Red Sox fans. Degree realities of baseball that oftentimes you lose your best. Of So shut for them. Can you explain to me Jeff? Can you explain how it is?

Health innovations was was founded on incubated. If you like by the Royal, foundation as part of the heads together campaign.

To help create more faces mock past for people to talk about that mental health. On one of the things that a lot of people said to us during the campaign with the it can be really hard to articulate and say how you'll see Lang. And it can be really hard. T find the right place to have that conversation in the moment. When you ready won't when you really want to be able to to speak to someone and connect with someone and. We were really interested in the idea of text. As a way of being able to talk about your mental health in a really private and obviously silent way. People use text. To be able to communicate at in times, when when was might not be might not be easy possible. Not particularly resonates around Mental House. People offer, find it really difficult to take late.

"passan" Discussed on The Dan Patrick Show
"Let's bring in Jeff Passan ESPN baseball insider. I'm going to be positive today. Jeff I'm GonNa say only Nice things about baseball. Can you make the same guarantee? I'm trying to be positive right now. Because after three months of reporting on something that absolutely did not need to happen. There's a schedule that set their players saying that they're going to go to spring training on July. First in everything is rainbows sprinkles so I would love to believe that, but there's this. There's this whole cocaine thing to and it scares me that we've gotten to this point now and that all of it can be blown out like that. We, call you the bunker here. Whenever, whenever there's news myself, and the Danettes we call you the do bunker because it's usually like. Hey, this news came out. What did pass say oh, he bunked it. So congratulations, you're the bunker. I, you know there's Mike, salk and brock. You're great radio host stuff at Seattle. Have a theme song for me every time I come on. It's a little jingle in a Ghost Jeff Passan the wet blanket operating imposes all. This is not the first to say that okay. I am fascinated by first base when the players come back. If I get to first base and there's a first baseman there. It's like me with the date. In High School I got to first base so I got to first base now. What is the social distancing going? How do they enforce that if I want to if I don't want to take too far of a lead on? Don't and that is you know that there is the catcher in the batter like there are places on the baseball field where people are just going to be close to one another, and that is a reality with which the sport has to deal. Baseball in terms of team sports is probably the friendliest in terms of just natural social distancing, but they're absolutely elephants tag plays. You know the is going in stealing second. Somebody is going to be running over there and is going to be getting up there and is GonNa take his law. Of and is going to swipe it wherever that player is, it may be glove into which he caught in someone's face vast just the reality of the situation, and if you're going to bring back baseball, you have to live with these I turn them small risks I. Don't think that being outside..
MLB to use the runner-on-second rule for extra innings this year
"And I saw Jeff Passan. This article, he had a lot of the details in it, so we know sixty games. You're, GonNa get teams are GonNA play their four division opponents, ten times, and each of the five interleague opponents in the same geographical area, four games a piece. That's pretty much how the season will lay out. This one I'm good with the D. H. for this year's fine I. don't care for the runner at second base. Extra innings if that's what we're doing I mean. Is that official that? I think that that's what they're going to be doing. Reading his article, he wrote in extra innings. Teams will begin with a runner on second base man I. Don't love that I. Would I would actually would have been happier with tie after ten than that nonsense, yeah? I. Don't know how I feel about this I mean. It's really a dramatic change, but at the same time like these. Games are the absolute worst and you can't have that in a sixth game season when you're trying to pack everything in, so you do have to come up with something and you WanNa winner because ties are going to complicate things. And you like what are you GonNa? Do you GonNa go to a home run. I mean there's really no answer that feels like baseball other than extra innings it just. How often do you think these eighteen inning games are going to happen? Really is the question I. Don't hate it, but that's out of all the things. That's the one that feels most non baseball out of all these new rules

Near twenty years through God's tonight. this happened during the break and I'm not even making it up. We'll get to pass Passan in a second, but because we were just talking about baseball, killing itself, Stu gods was standing up and he was saying if they kill it. Who's going to bring it back? What's going to bring them? What's going to bring it back? Dan and I started to answer. As response was, I'll tell you what nothing Dan nothing. And then he asked me like three or four more questions, and then I tried to answer all three or four, and legitimately this was his rebuttal on like the third or fourth. Try by me. He just goes into sound making. What was the sound that you may? Yes. That's right, and so I look up and I'm like guts. I thought we were having a conversation, his response was we weren't. I could've left the room. Who? Just asking questions, and then the answering them himself. So, passing you come on here. Please help us understand. I've heard the entire time I've covered baseball a work stoppages fighting over money will ruin the sport. I've never believed it. It's never happened. We saw last night with this special home runs brought it back. Steroids were medicine. If? They don't have games. You think it's going to be a death. Blow to baseball. Bankin Dan. Can I tell you something? When you guys I don't know if this was earlier today, but when you were talking about Louis Riddick. That really spoke to me because I feel like over the last three months is I've been going on television. I have more and more gotten. The life sucked out of me and that I am at this point looking like the crypt keeper from tales from the crypt every time I on Jeff, realize. Bags under my eyes. I have just this very at this very sunken face I'm getting John just like live. John dissing I feel like. I'm turning yellow on the air and and it's baseball. Baseball is doing this. This is not based on. Learning.

"Maguire's number sixty seven. Whose vol's are Jude Number Sixty eight? VOL's are June is number sixty nine whose Volvo are June and his seventieth. Ball and you've got Sammy Sosas number sixty one DR J.. And number sixty six. Crews vol's are June and Barry. Bonds is number. Seventy three balls are June. And that of course is billy ray Cyrus talking about why it is that Pete rose should be in the hall of fame, and we asked him a question that sort of sideswiped him. VOL's are used. Naturally That's a Bummer, and it speaks those two God's to everything that has happened to baseball because while I was making fun of you last week for lamenting the thing that I've heard every work stoppage. That baseball ever has which this'll ruined the sport. I don't think this will ruin the sport if they can't come back to play baseball I don't actually think a mutated fifty game season while fun is representative of anything that resembles a champion. That's just a money grab, but it's a lot more fun a lot shorter sprints i. I mean is the shorter sprint except the royals can win, the sprint is the problem. I'm good with that I. don't care I mean if you WANNA make it even more random than the playoffs already are in baseball. Just don't treat it like it's a legitimate measurement of your best team. Is the mets shots he's everybody has shot. If you'RE GONNA, go fifty games, and just to be a sprint till the end, and if Manfred is sitting here, guaranteeing you that at the very least, you're going to get those fifty games. That would be helpful to baseball, but when you're when you're average fan is fifty two years old. When you've got an obvious problem. The now it's all home runs or nothing, not enough contact games too long. It's either the whole game is evolved so fast now like basketball, which evolved to the three point line and people enjoyed it. It's evolved to a place where it's less watchable even among peoples to God's that really love the game right and what you have happening and I can't remember this happening in my journalism lifetime. What you have happening with baseball. Is that you're losing sports fans and are going from a sport that used to be nationally relevant and top three by any measure top to in some cases, because it was ahead head of basketball there for a while you see it evaporating right in front of your eyes, so like a work stoppage when people are already teetering toward indifferent. Yes, it's it can be the last drop in a bucket that makes a bucket overflow. Because in my lifetime I've never seen a sport lose more fans that used to be fans of their sport than baseball. Like in my lifetime there is no comparison to baseball used to have an ardent fan base, and now the average. Average age is fifty two years old. Those people grew up on baseball, but while they're good with advanced media and whatnot, they're better than any of the sports with advanced media. They don't know how to capture young people and liquid. It's up to get baseball to come back the first time this happened. It took the summer of ninety eight. It took Sosa mcgwire and you had nothing else to do. There's nowhere else to go. If baseball goes into, it's one of those places again. We're fans are down on the sports. Simply because the sport went away, there is no more benchmark. There is no more possibility of ever having a season or something like that again. Jeff Passan joins us.

Reports: Players propose 89-game season, rejection expected
"For the Major League Baseball players union counter proposal is due to the league on Wednesday multiple reports indicate the players will not concede to anything less than a hundred percent of their pro rated salaries if there is a stalemate commissioner rob Manfred could unilaterally implement the shortened season in the neighborhood of fifty games more time that the sports fans arguing over these positions that seem to be completely intractable the last time there is we are exactly where we were a month ago there has been no progress made and that's the most frustrating part of this whole thing yes peons Jeff Passan if the baseball players are a little ticked off by the notion of a fifty game season they could file a
MLB's Next Steps and Minor League Crisis
"Is this Jeff Passan or is it jet passing? This is Jeff, Passan but Jeff Passan may actually have been right except like a week or so early. Maybe Jeff. Passan isn't. MLB INSIDER FOR ESPN jet passing. Is someone on social media pretending to be jeff who incorrectly tweeted last week that the league in players had reached an agreement. Jet Passan actually deemed me to apologize. That's actually really nice. It was. He's a he or she don't know. Let's not not all trolls don't know who who Jeff Passan's but jet said it was intended for my friends and I didn't realize ten thousand likes later. The as many people were going to see it. So, Jeff talks between the Union and the League of heated up as the clock is ticking down, there's been a lot of back and forth with you, reporting that the owners are preparing a new offer, but let's back up to last week when they before their last offer, which had huge pay cuts for the stars. The players soundly rejected it then on Sunday night. Mlb Pa submitted a counter proposal to the league. What did they ask for? In that deal was really the opposite of what the owners had proposed earlier in the week, MLB had proposed an eighty two game schedule with significant pay cuts that were on a gradient and grew larger for the players who are making more money. This was a total nonstarter for the players who have been sticking with this notion of having pro-rated salaries paid in full, so the players on Sunday came back with not just full pro rated salaries, but over one hundred fourteen games in a season that would run all the way through the end of October so that there would be a postseason in November which we have never seen before. It was. Not Quite as radical as the owners proposal was to the players, because it included things like potential deferrals and a little tiny, give back, and saying hey will have expanded playoffs through two thousand, twenty, one as well, but this was never going to be the type of proposal that the owners would consider. Let alone except. So, what are the owners counteroffer? Well, the owners having countered yet, but what they've done is they've discussed the possibility of going back into this March twenty sixth agreement that they have with the players and utilizing some of the language in there really as a Cudgel, this language essentially gives rob Manfred the commissioner, the right to make the schedule for the two thousand twenty season. Now it's after good faith discussion with the players, but it says that a schedule can be made, and it has to include economic feasibility it has include a health and safety. It has to really include all of. Of these different things that could make it viable in major league baseball's mind, the most viable way to pay players a full prorated salary that they desire is to do so over a schedule of about fifty games. Give or take a few, and that doesn't seem like a lot because it's not, but it's also the thing that is going to leverage these discussions in one of two ways Meena. It's either going to get baseball back on the field in two thousand twenty, or it's going to get baseball on a courtroom arguing over legal ease in over the enforceability of these provisions. So one hand they said all right. We'll go back to the pro rated salaries that you guys have been clamoring for that. You claimed we all agreed to back in March, but on the other hand we might end up playing significantly fewer games correct and the reason for that according to the owners. Is that every game that they play this year? They are going to lose money now. This is a contention with which the MLB Players Association vehemently disagrees, and it has been seeking out documentation to support this idea whether it's television contracts, sponsorship agreements projections internally from clubs on what their revenues would look like as well as what they would. Would have to pay out both to players to employees and two others. They're looking essentially Meena for receipts, and the League has yet to provide that sort of information, because well, that sort of information for a long time has been privileged and I think there are some teams that are afraid that if they give up too much information, it's going to give too much leverage to the players in the future to understand how the finances work exactly, and you know if you're a team. That's looking to make as much money as you can. You don't want the people who can take the most money from you knowing exactly what your hand
MLB players offer 114-game season, no more $ cuts
"Let me just talk a little bit about sports for a second on Sunday there was a counter proposal from the MLBPA and here is what they proposed it was at one hundred and fourteen game season deferred salaries in the event of a cancel post season any option for all players to opt out of potential twenty twenty season due to a coronavirus concerns that's what sources told ESPN in this article as well when we hear about the one hundred and fourteen game season it would operate from June thirtieth as the start date and the regular season I guess would conclude on October thirty first we also heard from the MLBPA that they would want expanded playoffs for two years and the MLB's proposal suggests one year of a post season that goes from ten teams to fourteen teams this is once again the MLBPA being unrealistic and Major League Baseball also being unrealistic again we saw the MLB's our national proposal the eighty two games and how there was going to be a significant reduction in salary we know that first offer was not going to be accepted so then the Players Association counters back with a hundred and fourteen games where MLB wants eighty two games because they think they're gonna lose more money and you're gonna have a pro rated salary over a hundred and fourteen games there is no way that Major League Baseball the commissioner and the owners is going to accept this as a seven draw it's pointed out MLB owners are sticking to two points that they need one is a shorter schedule and two is a salary reduction Jello jazz this deal that was proposed by the MLBPA has been rejected yet but that's inevitable and the MLB animal B. P.

"passan" Discussed on The Rich Eisen Show
"There's a lot out there to make heads or tails. I mean this is I. I'll say it here On the air to Just so I'm consistent. As my first choice to have this conversation I always love our conversations with ESPN insider senior MLB insider. Jeff Passan. How are you jeff? Hello Richard How are you? I am hanging in there. Sir. I'm hanging in there. This seems particularly it. Seems you know. Two weeks ago sounded ugly then last time we chatted last week. It was okay. Everybody's quiet so I'll take that as good news now. People aren't quite anymore and it's disease particularly ugly Jeff. It sounds very ugly. Yeah it's a other early I'm I still don't think we're at the point. Now where where? We need to full on panic to to me. I think the full on panic comes Well first we have to wait and see what the union says exactly at its proposal back to To Mlb we understand that they are going to outright reject the the economic proposal that MLB gave them on Tuesday By essentially not acknowledging it Our friend Scott Van Pelt said it's essentially like if you have a million dollar home someone gives you a two hundred thousand dollar offer on it. You're just not going to acknowledge that that offer ever existed and I think the players aren't going to acknowledge that The economic proposal for baseball so I think after that what we're going to get to see is A. What do the players want? And the how do the owners react and that is going to be the biggest rich because if the owners you know if the owners say you know what we can't talk with these people? We're not going to do this. It's GonNa be gridlock for a little while and and the idea of coming back with Spring Training on June ten and an opening day by the fourth of July simply not going to happen so I think that is what's at stake right now. Well let's take it piece by piece then. Jeff I mean June. Tenth Seems Very Pie in the sky. Let's just let's just take one piece of time. Has there been agreement at least on the Safety Protocols. Or that's still something that's out there that just taking a backseat. There's no sense to talk about it in stone agreement at this point. But there's there's not going to be an issue there okay. Everyone I've been telling you this for a while now. Everyone wants same thing with the like everyone wants players to be healthy and for buyers to infiltrate clubhouses into do everything they can to ensure that doesn't happen and I think that players While inconvenienced by this are not ultimately going to put up much of a protest. You know they want their they want hot tubs and cold. Tub for example and they should because that's part of their That's part of their recovery regimen. And when you're you know going from zero to sixty and trying to restart games as quickly as they are There's there's the possibility of injuries and you WanNa make sure that your body is as well to possibly can be under the circumstances. So I mean there's given to take and all that sorta stuff and as long as everybody's safe and happy I get that so our places just basically a money issue right and so so. Here's like listen just player say. We're concerned about our health and safety and they are. I don't think that that's disingenuous. But the problem is they're also concerned about the money and the money is the thing that they don't have an agreement on at this point health and safety like if you told baseball players that we are going to wipe away all of the money issues that you have an all. We need to play. Tomorrow is the health and safety agreement they would get it done in. Twenty four hours truly fat On the other hand key do that with with money it can take a lot longer than twenty twenty four hours well because his certainly if it sounds like you know the position is owner. Saying you know I I know. We agreed to the pro rating back in March but the boots on the ground That the virus has placed on all of us Changes everything now that we know there's definitely going to be no fans now that we know the circumstances under which we will have to play the Games we didn't factor that in in March or we. We didn't agree to things back in March knowing what we'd have to. Here's the thing the league. The League does believe that attacted that the League believes that there's language in that contract and that deal with the players association that absolutely covers the scenario that you just mentioned. And and there are words in there about economic feasibility and good faith bargaining That essentially baseball believes the way that the contract is warranted. And I've talked with a number of lawyers who agree with the on this that the way that it's worded it. It essentially put the onus on the players to bargain in good faith over what salaries doesn't say specifically over what salaries are going to be. But it says over the economic feasibility. And you can take economic feasibility and extrapolate it out to salaries considering those are going to be the the largest taker of capital from onerous. So now that we're okay but now now that we're in a good now that we're in a good old fashioned lawyer taking a look at contract conversation..
MLB's Plan to Save the 2020 Season
"Jeff you've been cleaned broadcasts. Can you say hello in Korean yet? I'm young hustle. Meena was good. It was good. Yeah the Right Energy. I felt Jeff. Passan is an MLB insider for ESPN. Yesterday the owners approved a proposal. That Commissioner Rob Manfred plans to present to the players today for a return to play scenario that aims to have baseball back by early July. What is in the plan? How about baseball starting on the fourth of July light? Can we get any more American and look? I think that's part of this whole thing. I think that baseball wants to capture this part of the American sporting landscape that has just been dreaming of sports coming back and typically baseball during its season is competing with the NBA playoffs and with the NHL Playoffs and then training camp starts in the NFL and college. Football are in full swing by the time. The playoffs come around. Baseball has a pretty open landscape here. Which is what I think. Partially driving this as it stands right now. The biggest and most important things are spring training 2.0. Starting in June season of eighty two games starts up in July and the biggest of all is the revenue split between the sides now. Baseball is not a cat sports. The only American team professional sport that does not have a salary cap and so the notion of revenue split has never been part of the financial landscape but what? Mlb is proposing in. This first pass is a fifty fifty revenue split that tries to mitigate the downside for owners who say they are bleeding because of the corona virus pandemic has wrought and because when they return in this proposal it would in major league stadiums in their cities. There will be no fans there so it's pretty obvious why they want to do this financially right and the players as well financially but there's also tremendous risk for the players. Their families pretty much. Everyone who's actually in and around the fields. What have the players said so far the players have been fairly silent? You know you haven't had anyone come out and say no. This is not going to work behind the scenes. However that's exactly what they said. They're saying that this fifty fifty split plan is a complete nonstarter and they're saying this for a couple of reasons. One of them is fundamental. The players have so long fought against the idea of a cap. Remember back in nineteen ninety four when there was a strike. Major League Baseball wanted to institute a salary cap. The players were willing to lose a season and a world series to avoid that but beyond that what buttresses their argument right now they believe is the agreement in March that was signed between the players and Mlb and in the players minds that says explicitly that if a season begins they will be paid a prorated salary based on the number of game so eighty two games. They're going to get about half of their salary. Mlb's contention is that in this agreement. There's something of poison pill which is a phrase bat says all of this is valid unless there are no fans in stadiums now. Mlb is arguing that that little claws at the beginning of the contract applies to players salaries. What the Union is saying? Is that if you wanted that to be. In the salary portion of the agreement you should have put it in their explicitly. And because it's not in their explicitly. It's not valid. What about from a public health perspective? How is this actually going to work? I think is as unanswered question at this point as the finances are and it's because there's really no clear good roadmap to how to do this right we've seen in other countries we've seen in Taiwan and in South Korea baseball comeback but those are also places that haven't had anywhere near is to spread of Corona virus as we have what they can try to do is make it as safe as possible. Teams are going to play Games only inside of their division and against the Inter League team in those division so for example American League East teams will play only American League East and National League East opponents. The hope there is that limiting travel. You can take bus rides from New York to Philadelphia our from Philadelphia Washington but in the central divisions for example that that's just not realistic. Those teams are going to be taking flights practically every time they have to play a game so between that and figuring out how much testing can be done. It's a huge part of this. In another reason Meena why the players are as emboldened as they are because they feel like. They're the ones taking all the risk here. The owners aren't going out from place to place going out in public staying in hotels traveling coming into contact with people who might be infected. They're going to be staying in the comfort of their homes. If they want. If players played do not have that choice. They get stayed home for half the time. They're going to be on the road the other half.
MLB return-to-play proposal expected within week

Allison be for this intrusion on your life. Well I'm never speaking of Jeff Passan again. I'm not to tell anybody about this but and I didn't volunteer this. It came up kind of naturally organically and I did indeed explain that my mini fridge that has died about me written all over it and not to mention for likenesses of be a two of the show horns like a lawn mower and I can't use it. I have to unplug it every time I do a live shot from my office because it sounds like there's a league record in the room so I've the had to unplug it but I did not complain about it.

I'm mortified I had no idea that it was loud and we'll make sure to get it out out of your house and send your working one. This is really not necessary and anyone any good at these things probably figure it out how to make the noise go away fix the motor but as we know I I can't fix anything. I tried to blow up my basketball ball today because it was a little low and the the pin went into the basketball and now it's completely flat. I go buy another one because I can't could pump up a basketball. And there's a chance that I could fix a motor inside a bidding fridge. How soon did this machine start making this noise? After it got into your house I would say a matter of days. Not even a week and allison willison was making noise. Why do we send people? Cheap awful level gives the good into their house and become lawn. MOWER sounds didn't interrupt their ability to do their job. It was so thoughtful. Everything's gone into feces. This is so bad.

Kuta ron ron no she did not. This is why dan because you know who did that. Once before i do not prince did that. Once before and you know what happened on prince did that was that bill it made the originals even more valuable so prince re recorded a lot of his music as taylor may or may not do but then the originals originals become more valuable so she could be inadvertently making what a scooter braun owns even more valuable by trying to stick it to him. So what do we do here if we're taylor swift swift. He's all of us. What do you think we should do a tough spot so we keep downloading original music or do we wait till she rerecord it. What are we going. You're really care about her and care about the music. You wait for her to rerecord download those those the more popular ones but i don't know if that's possible. I don't know if the fan base is large enough for that to to be a possibility. You have to just wait to see what taylor swift tells you to do and whatever she tells you you follow. That's a good that's a good point. Do you guys ever like have your favorite artists. This is something that happens with me as sometimes all your favorite artists will put out a new album or new music or it's like oh. This person has a new album coming out like i'm good like kinda like all the music you've done so far. Don't ruin it for me by we're trying something new like. I'd prefer if you stick with the music that you have right now. I'm good. Here's an unpopular one. I'm good. I love music. I love her catalog catalogue.

He's going to hand he's going to his old. Songs is going to be great right wrong. J galvin had a new album coming out like a month later so it was all new songs and i'm like what is this of course now. I jammed to those at the time. I had no idea what he was singing. I'm like can you just go on there and seeing me hand to please all. I want to hear from from you right now j galvin. There's nothing worse than artists. That doesn't wanna play the hits.

"Has to do with sex and how much of it has to do with what you were talking about as a masking agent or actually being involved in performance enhancing even though these drugs by themselves aren't performance enhancing well. Here's the thing they're all part of. <hes> this wide ranging thirty plus billion dollar a year unregulated supplement industry and you just never know what you're going to get in them. It's also it's almost like remember a federal the drug that was causing heart attacks in so many people that have it was a weight loss drug. <hes> this is kind of the same thing you just. I don't know what's going to be cut into these pills and the f._d._a. Right now on its website has a list of i believe two hundred sixty seven <hes> <hes> sexual enhancement pills that have been found to be tainted and in seriously if you were to just go up and down and read the list for two minutes and come up with the best one that would be spectacular lebatardshow content. I really feel like this is a necessary thing to do. After the break i can send you the list and you will truly enjoy the names of <hes> the products you see out there done <hes> we will do that in the next segment. We'll do it with you if you're willing to stay with us for another segment. I would love to say for that but i want to ask you. Which do you think is the more likely reason that gas station. Imp- pills are a problem. Do you think it's because of that shame. You're talking about that. A young guy doesn't want to go into the doctor or do you think it has anything to do with the performance performance enhancing masking stuff <hes> look these things because of what they're loaded with could theoretically be used as like workout enhancers i mean and it's it's essentially going to be speed but then again the idea of them actually performing the function that they're supposed to. I don't think anybody he wants to work out <hes> and and show off their stuff while they're working out so it doesn't seem to make sense that it would be a performance answer on. I'm feeling i think that the the likelihood is that <hes> it is for the bedroom and that they're just embarrassed to go and get regular pills. They just want to who <hes> be more virile young men than they <hes> than they already are. What's the grossest thing jeff passan his ever purchased at a gas station. We were talking about whether you would do. The pickled pickled pigs feet whether it's been sitting there for. That's been there for a month yeah. Can i be honest.

I don't think it's actually made of chicken but it's delicious so i don't keira stretching down enforceable matt's jeff. You'll agree that a week on the roller just gives that little little crunchy on the outside that helps it an entire week on the power. You guys building out the a. rod bathroom of your immagination.

"Would you ever buy penis pills at the gas. I station balls are james. What a great controversy in major league baseball jeff passan is very good at his job he does. He knows what's interesting interesting and he goes very well from funny <hes> too serious to inform and he sat down to tweet yesterday that the use use of gas station sexual enhancement pills in baseball is so prevalent that major league baseball sent out a memo warning players that they're used could lead to positive p._d. Tests just as at least two players have claimed this year sources tell e._s._p._n. Who's balls are june and it legitimately got me to wondering there's just certain things i won't buy a gas station. Sushi's one of them of course and this is one of them. I'm not going to buy this in a gas station and i guess it only has to be for emergency situations. Are there not enough. C._v._s. is all over the country popping up because of our our need for pharmaceuticals that you can't get this at a place a little cleaner than a gas station phrasing dan this is this seems to me that you know it's like late night. You're going home. You need something and the only things that are open or a gas station ten. They're the only places that supply you with what you need to understand that baseball players are tired from sitting out there for four hours not watching a baseball hit them and they need some sexual help. I it just didn't have him getting it at the gas station if i told you before jeff passan reported this story if i had said hey. Do you think that base ace pulse got a problem a memo worthy problem because so many players are using penis pills from the gas station. Do you guy would all all of you guys said yes. I believe that yes of course dan. That's if i if i let's say i did it another way. Let's say i came on yesterday and there was no reporting on on this subject and i simply told you guys careful with phrasing dinner that listen. I know i know that players use a bunch of pena's pills from gas stations. Wouldn't you all said to me when you have all said to me. What are you talking about. How do you know that what does that mean. That's ridiculous. I don't think so i it's perfectly believable. I mean there are plenty of things that you could purchase. Is that a gas station. I mean they have many useful things. I mean seriously no one else is selling hot dogs late night. Who's selling hot. Dogs gas station probably would've gone c._v._s.
