Trump accepts US presidency transition to Biden must begin
"Today might mark the first day of the rest of donald trump's life that is because tonight joe biden officially became president elect. And let's also be real clear. Here it's over. The president has failed in his attempt. To overturn an election result joe biden will as planned takeover as the forty six president noon january twentieth in keeping with the results of the election. Another way of putting it is. Trump's defeat became official when the woman who runs the general services administration faced with a boss. Who will not concede just tonight grudgingly agreed to officially begin the transition to the new administration in a letter to biden that avoids calling him. President elect emily murphy signed off on his transition and noted she was under no political pressure. Writing quote please know that came to my decision independently based on the lawn available facts. I was never directly or indirectly pressured by any executive branch official including those who work at the white house or gsa with regard to the substance. Our timing of my decision. I did not receive any direction to delay my determination. Her decision came just hours after election. Officials in michigan certify. Joe biden's victory. Trump posted his reaction to the news about the transition with a message. That did not sound like a concession quote. I wanna thank emily murphy at gsa for her steadfast dedication and loyalty to our country our case strongly continues and we will keep up the good fight and i believe we will prevail nevertheless in the best interests of our country. I am recommending that. Emily and her team do what needs to be done and have told my team to do the same tonight. The new york times reports at this way quote mr trump had been resisting any move toward a transition but in conversations in recent days that intensified monday morning top aides including mark meadows the white house. Chief of staff pat sip alone. The white house chief counsel and jay seculow. The president's personal lawyer told the president. The transition needed to begin. He did not need to say the word can see. They told him. Trump continued to solicit opinions from associates including giuliani. Who told him there. Were still legal. Avenues to pursue. This all comes after a string of losses trump and his effort to overturn the election results. Now trump's legal team is putting all their efforts in pennsylvania. Even several counties have begun to certified the biden victory earlier on this network one of trump's campaign lawyers explained the strategy here or legal strategies to make sure that every vote counts in his counted fairly inaccurately and we have timing again until december fourteenth. At least where those electors for the electoral college will vote and so our strategies to make sure that we continue to challenge all of these False and fraudulent results. The election was stolen in president trump by landslide. Okay so far. None of the election lawsuits has uncovered any fraud.

Principal Kafele: Tips and Tricks to Flourish with Hybrid Learning
"Can you tell us some cool things and some maybe some tips and tricks for how you can thrive in a hybrid environment. Yeah definitely been It's truly been a whirlwind as an educator in the classroom of trial and error for sure. But i've been trying out teaching in my class. Different things such as rotations enduring are high flex time so instead of teaching synchronous lee and the classroom i've been actually teaching my virtual kids first and then teaching my class kids second so What we do is we build up to. We're building up essentially to a station rotation model for blended learning space. I teach my virtual group. I while i while my in class kids engaged in a retrieval practice activity based around concepts that. We've already learned to commit that information to long term. Memory retrieval practices one of my newest favorite professional development pieces. You tell me like. I'm a kindergartner. What is what's retrieval practice. And why is it getting a lot of hype right now. So retrieval practice will i i. I need to Really put out there. That patrice bain and pooja. Argh wall who wrote powerful teaching It's one of the professional developments that were actually doing our district right. Now have written this amazing book to talk. About how retrieval practice which is the practice of actually pulling information out of our brain is so important in the education setting because a lot of what we do in education is encoding so we give students information but we never really ask them to remember that information until it's a high stakes environment such as an assessment. So the idea. Around retrieval practice is that we are giving them more opportunities and a low stakes environment in order to allow them to practice their remembering of information and concepts and the ideas that we can get foundational information down and pat so that we can move onto those higher level. Like bloom's taxonomy of creating an analyzing in order to have a more Successful classroom environment and have students understanding concepts at higher levels. The that's fascinating so basically having kids dig back for information helps them. Actually learn is kind of what retrieval does shocking. Right like practice remembering you. You drive to one place you practice driving that place. You're going to remember that route no matter what and then it just becomes you drive there and text of the same time. I hope not or listen to rain So i interrupted you. Sorry so what's going on hybrids with retrieval and all that stuff. Sorry no problem. That was a great no background to what the my in class kids are. Actually doing while. I'm teaching my virtual students. So students are working on retrieval activities and while they work independently on those retrieval activities. Which again are based on previous concepts. So it's independent. Because they know it and they won't need my support for it. I give a mini lesson to my students at home and we do guided practice. And then i send them on their way to finish the rest of the independent work and then i teach again my second mini lesson all over again with students in the classroom and i found that by teaching in rotations. Like this i was better able to connect with each group of students especially in the elementary setting. They know when. You're talking to the what i call the zuma's and when you talk to the rumors zuma's in room just some of that so it's been a really great way to build that capacity with students in the room and then also online and then i've also found some like to really big tidbits. This year is that it's important to go. Slow to go fast Modeling and practicing how to use these different online platforms and tools to help build their capacity. So that they can masterfully. Use it on their own And then also making That homework incredibly scaffold so that they also again have that capacity to do it independently and be able to provide an extension for students who are able to move through the material quickly and then the scaffold portion if they were moving through it at a normal pace than they could just stop with the independent essentially. So it's been an adventure We're finding what works for us and truly getting into group at this point.
NFL Insider Dan Graziano Breaks Down Week 11
"Dan graziano it is eleven fifty eight. Pm eastern so. Thank you very much man for staying up late behind. After that game. I go right to sleep. That was exciting. Dan graziano is an espn nfl insider. And he will get to sleep soon. We promise fired for game like that. Yeah me too i mean. Let's get into this right off the top here the chiefs. Just beat the raiders. Thirty five to thirty one. They beat the team who is beating kansas city. This season dan back in week. Five about a million years ago. So were you watching for in this rematch tonight. Well to see if they can do it again right. I mean that sounds simple. But like i didn't think their victory over kansas city was a fluke because it seemed like they had kind of a formula that they went out and they stuck to. They didn't win but a certainly could have. And i think that's that's significant because they know that's the team that is in their way in their division. Obviously they're on top of the conference in the league as super bowl champion. So you see the raiders. Draft a running back in the first round last year. That can help them. Control the clock and keep mahomes on the sideline like they did in the first game. They played they draft the speedy wide receiver this year in the first round. That can stress their quarterbacks. I mean they're thinking about the chiefs all the time. They're certainly not on that level at this point as the records indicate but they've constructed a team that can play in a way that threatens the chiefs and it might be able to beat them. So they're not as different as you might inclined to think yet and i have to admit like the difference between pat mahomes and derek carr felt smaller than i ever realized it would tonight. What did you see from these two quarterbacks total commanded of the offense which has not always been him. And certainly since gruden's been there. We've seen a lot more ups and downs. Where he looked like he was a little bit. Lost a little bit uncertain But this is years three with gruden and when gruden got there he talked about competent car up and making sure that car believed he was the guy. So that when you know. When ben came together around him he would be the guy that was in total control of things. And and it seems to be coming to fruition. What he's got. He's got people to throw to nelson agholor like out of nowhere as having a career renaissance in las vegas. He's got two very running back. Got a great offensive line. And i think you know he's playing with a lot of confidence as you would expect him to give all those things now. I think he's taken a big job this year in terms of where. He ranks in terms of the quarterbacks. We feel confident about what we watched the did feel like gruden kinda new like no. It's sunday night football. Let's give the people something that they'll enjoy. What did you most enjoy from. Hearing those play called why. I our love to know what the purple walrus was and i mean i think there are some vegas ones like he dropped. The sammy davis in there at one point and then and then it sounded like they've been paying very close attention to the nba off-season because there are a number of james harden and those who among nfl coaches knows how to produce primetime football. Better than jon gruden right. I mean he did it for for a decade or so for us in terms of operating in that sphere. So maybe i don't know maybe maybe he feels like a showman or maybe they're just having a lot of fun in their in their offensive meetings. They sound like all. The time does not all watching every week but was it so as showmanship goes that lasts. Drive man lake travis. Kelsey had some great moments in this game but that catch at the end mahomes calling him the best tight end in the league game. What did you see from travis kelsey tonight yeah domination. This is this. is you talk about reliability. I mean the the quarterback knows he's going to be where he's supposed to be. He knows he's almost certainly going to be open. He know he's going to catch the ball like it's total complete confidence in a guy in a key spot third down. A guy had throw to the end zone in the final minute. I mean he is the best tight end in the league. I don't think it's even close especially when you know. George kittle is on the shelf right now in the second best tight end. The league is probably the guy that was on hiller sidelines tonight. So there's there's no doubt that he in homes are in sync in a way that very few combinations like that are
Mahomes outduels Carr to all but wrap up AFC West
"Out in front of allegiance stadium. Where the raiders lost a heartbreaker thirty five to thirty one basically. It came down to who had the ball last. And that would be the defending champion super bowl chiefs in under a minute scoring. After the raiders. Had the go ahead. Touchdown there with jason win in the fourth quarter. The chiefs come back march down. The field home says a typical mahomes fashion Very flawless on the car does get the ball back. But there's an interception and that one sealed the game win for the chief so that she's advanced to nine and one atop the afc west. Adam when you start looking here at what the afc west looks like. There's a lot of teams vying for that. Wildcard spot that. The raiders will be standing in line for a meeting. Some more winds to keep in that contention for that spot so right now. What did the raiders do right in this game that they can take away from this one. Look at the offense. The offense was was not only efficient but just good. It was dynamic at that everything and had to do starting with derek carr who i thought had a really good overall game. You mentioned the interception. I mean that's just desperate situation trying to pick a chunk play downfield to nelson agholor when you're not miles and no real way. That's really worked. The ball downfield. And you need a touchdown. You needed yards quickly. And they tried to force something and didn't work out. But i think you throw that out just because of the situation and you look at everything else that he did in the game of was just great. And you know before the intersection with twenty. Three of thirty two seventy And a couple of those were drops solving really barely had any off target throws the entire day Went you know. Blow for blow with pat mahomes. And the vaunted kansas city chiefs offense. You take a lot out of that offense or performance and defensively. I think you know you you kind of know what. The raiders are Good spots for for the most part they're inconsistent They've had some games where they came up with a big play here and there but really nothing That you can necessarily hang your hat on and you're going to game against the best offense in the league when you didn't practice all week i mean there wasn't a whole lot of positive situations for the defense. But they found a spot here and there to make a stop and know they did enough to keep them in the game until that last drive in the last drive was just you know the best quarterback in the world operating You know in ideal situation of being in a hurry up offense just need to get down the field for a field goal or a touchdown and a defense that was just kind of grasping at straws or make a stop and they couldn't but i think what you take out of it positive is. The offense is really good and it's good enough to win a game pretty much every

"This is dr. Michael wilks with a second opinion for several weeks drew appointments to see me and then canceled them at the very last minute when he finally showed up. He was concerned about a rash on his lower legs. I diagnosed flea bites. But he just didn't look good. I asked him all sorts of general questions about his health and he kept saying he was fine but given his age and his smoking history. I ordered a long. Cat scan and tests for colon cancer. Even though he'd had one just four years ago the student who was working with me asked why was ordering those tests. When i'm usually so careful about not over ordering tests. She reminded me that. I always make her. Tell me why she is ordering every test. She wants to order on every patient. But all i could offer her was. I had a gut feeling. She told me that. I didn't seem like a gut feeling sort of doctor. And all i could say was that something. Just doesn't seem right. She asked me what i saw. And i really couldn't identify any one thing. It wasn't something he said. Perhaps it was a subconscious summing up of his words or actions are nonverbal behaviors regardless we moved on to the next patient clinicians gut feelings while not scientific or evidence based need to be acknowledged as a component of clinical decision making perhaps spike gut feeling. I meant it was a intuition or a suspicion or an instinct or even a clinical impression. I realized that gut feelings are very subjective and are prone to my bias. So i usually try to focus on objective findings when i went to fill out the request for this et scan. I wasn't even sure what to put in the blank. Where it said reason four-test i could imagine the radiologist laughing at me. If i wrote. I just have a gut feeling. A recent study looked at research on gut feelings related to cancer diagnoses. The study found that clinicians had difficulty specifying what their guts were saying. However win the gut feelings were present. Clinicians generally acted on them either through referrals or through a careful. Workup of seventeen thousand patients included in the study. The odds of a cancer diagnosis were four times higher. When the doctor had had a gut feeling than when they did not gut feelings were more accurate with older physicians and were more accurate. The better the doctor knew the patient it turns out that often these gut feelings were even more predictive than a combination of described symptoms. One week later drew. Cat scan came back showing lung cancer. The student was impressed. But i didn't pat myself on the back rather as a researcher. I've been trying to figure out what it was that gave me that gut feeling.

"pat right" Discussed on Just The Sip
"People get second chances in this world. All the time Lindsey Lowe him not going to see your name them up and really do ruin them and sometimes there's this one out of one hundred that gets that second chance and not only does it but kills it and this man kills it. I mean that story. I'm there's even more to that story than what we heard in our forty five minutes. It was incredible and the fact that he has come so far and is still so humble and so funny and so sweet is in like mind blowing bitch. The fact that he's alive is mind blowing. Roy that's true. That's true but I love this story because breaking the cycle is heart especially when both parents are part of the cycle. And it's crazy whenever you think about somebody who grew up in that environment who grew up in a trap house it puts in perspective especially for people who I mean. Everyone's got problems but then when you hear someone story like that it really puts your life into perspective that what you can overcome and like what is a big problem versus a bigger problem. A real challenge in life is like I think it really kind of can slap you into reality to hear that someone can overcome so much and be so successful and he deserves it for sure. You know he's talented. He's worked his ass off but it's it's a pretty amazing story. You know growing up in the hood myself you know. I run across these people that I grew up with and a lot of times. They have this. This was the hand I was dealt. Attitude right no these cards I was dealt and I was very lucky because I was raised by my mother. My Mother did not was not an addict. My Mother did not abusing anything. You know some of the other people that are grew up with in my life weren't as lucky so for the longest time like I had this. You know I was lucky thing but I don't think it's about luck I think it's about senior life and realizing that there's more out there so you know when I hear these are the cards I was dealt. This is the hand that I was. You know hand it. I don't believe that anymore. It's not that hard to kind of persevered past that right like he had his come to Jesus moment and there's people there there are people in the world that sit and feel bad for themselves and stay in those moments younger people who change those moments and push past handwriting and by the way to Puerto Rico because Puerto Rico is one of the most beautiful countries. I've been there I've ever seen old school. It has so much culture and so much life but the one being I tried to do in Puerto Rico go to jail seen broad. Yeah I have enjoyed from afar where I can rewind my you know. I couldn't imagine going to jail. I mean listen the jail I had in my head being seasons like odds with Christmas right but I know that. Visible scarring got a long time long time. Three years in jail for a musician is a long time. Because you have these Takashi six nine six nine six nine maybe more minutes your and you have all these people who kind of lose it. It's about the people sometimes. It's about the people around you who didn't get to that. You know what I mean but I also like how honest. He was about his time in jail like when he was like. It wasn't that to park moment. I was still angry. Like it wasn't until he got out of jail. He had his moment right like he was still angry. Still just trying to get by had lost.

"Players. Oh yes. Lots of money changes hands at some marquee programs. This time we are talked taking about talking about wiretaps and some big names are front and center is a glee, and it will will get uglier. Now if you can take the bad news start following the excellent reporting of Yahoos, Dan Wetzel and Pat forty. I don't know what the full ramifications will be, but in the end, some very. Important heads are going to roll who is such a mess. Most of us in sports writing business can point to one person earlier in our lives who pulled the curtain open and made us feel welcome for me. That person was Dave Anderson. I was a struggling musician in New York City, just looking to pay my rent, and I found some freelance work at a weekly TV magazine that was given away for free and supermarkets. It was nothing but TV listings. But for some reason, the editor fancied himself a journalist. So he paid fifty dollars a week for a cover story on some New York celebrity. I was assigned a guy named Dave Anderson. All I knew about him was that I read him in the sports section of the New York Times. He was always fair and entertaining and thoughtful. I called his office and somehow got him on the phone and somehow got him to agree to meet me in a west side coffee shop. Even though he had no idea who I was the Pulitzer prize winner arrived before I did and was waiting in a booth. His short white hair and glasses on his nose looking very much like he looked the bulk of his adult life. Life. I was nervous and fumbling and had a long list of questions and he politely entered each one of them. Finally, when I asked some meandering inquiry about columns and sports and deadlines and significance and blah, blah, blah, he smiled at me and said, quote, I think you're making more out of this job than it is. I laughed and he laughed and that changed everything I left thinking. I want to be like that guy. I left thinking, maybe I could take this writing thing to a sports section. And in time I did years later when I got into the business, I found Dave and a press box and introduced myself. He not only remembered me. He remembered my name and made some joke about, I guess I wasn't able to talk you out of it next week. I started national tour for book about heaven. The story being that you meet people in heaven who changed your life in some way, even with a brief encounter. The reason I created that story is for people like Dave Anderson who changed mine, it broke my heart to read today. The Dave Anderson died at the age of eighty nine. Like many older veterans in this business. His life ended having affected so many others including me. Thank you. Dave for not talking me out of it. That's going to wrap things up for today's sports reporters podcast. We thank you for joining us. We do this every Monday and Friday. We'll be back in a couple of days with a lot of baseball and a lot of football and maybe even some college football to talk about.

"Ahead and then somehow at the end of the year they're around, but they're not as strong as they were and then they bow out early in the playoffs. Maybe Patrick Mahomes changes that equation for them. We'll see. All right, it is time for our parting shots and Christine Brennan wanted to start off first. All right, let's thanks. Well, the most dominating basketball team in the world, the greatest dynasty in the sport one again this past week. Okay. You're saying, wait a minute. The NBA is in preseason. The dream team wasn't playing who you talking about. I'm talking about the US women's National Basketball team. The United States won the FIBA World Cup last weekend, running their record since nineteen ninety six to one hundred and one. The one came at the two thousand six World Cup loss to Russia in the semi-finals their last Olympic loss came in nineteen. Ninety two in Barcelona. George Herbert Walker Bush was the president. Then I was some people know about this Bob Ryan. You know, we covered the gold medal game in London and twenty twelve. You've certainly given this team, the respect it deserves others have as well. But this. Teams enduring greatness truly is one of the best kept secrets in sports. Why is that Americans love winning, right? They sports fans know these names Brennan. Stewart, Tarazi Dana Troisi, super Brittany. Griner Elena Delle, Dan coached on Staley. So what is it? Well, I think it's because they don't have a rival. The US women's national soccer team is much better known than the basketball team, and it's because we know they can lose because they have lost Norway, Germany, Sweden, etc. Americans love winning, but we also love rivalries. And unfortunately, the basketball team has no rival. That said, this dominance is something for the ages and enthralling for that reason alone by winning the World Cup, the United States qualified for the twenty twenty Olympics and Tokyo where I think it's safe to say they will win another Olympic gold medal. Now, if you're a Dave OT a big time college basketball, the male variety, which I liken to being in love with a Hooker, you should pay attention to a trial taking place in New York City. This is no toothless NCAA investigation of wrongdoing. This is serious stuff involving the feds. This is about the nefarious business practices of the shoe companies who stain everything. They touch what's front and center is the unseemly business of buying.

"Well, it'll be an amazing story if he does again, it'll be the envy of people all around the league teams that say, you know, if you came to OSCE, probably being rehab and he goes into New England and and and he gives Brady the one piece that he didn't have. But you know, good team sometimes have that, and they put, there's not an accident that they put his locker next to Tom Brady. I mean, that's a, that's an interesting move, and it's a kind of thing that you know, Bella chicken and Brady of done with other people. We'll see if it rubs off. We mentioned, Kansas City is going to be New England's next opponent. Probably the game to watch. And who would have said this a couple of years ago, this weekend is Kansas City. Jacksonville, he hasn't lost in Jacksonville, three and one and Patrick Mahomes is just is just rewriting things. I mean, you know the, it's not stat. Stats are always interesting in football because you their pin. Call four hundred yards, five hundred yards. Four touchdowns seven touchdowns, but it's the way that he is playing. It's his arm strength, his creativity. He's just stunning people right now with with his ability to that. I think a lot of people did not see when he was coming out of college. You just anticipate my mouth is sitting here open about, so you know, I want to say something here before we leave about Patrick Mahomes and you exactly what exactly. Mitch. What I was going to say is I, I watched that game. I don't or not make a habit of watching a game fully on Monday night, but I was, I was curious. I hadn't seen it. I've been reading about it since the beginning of the season. Weeding about Mahomes reading about homes and always seeing a little snippet highlights. I sat there and watch the game, and exactly what you said is that I wanted to leave. What as people never ever worry a judge him at the end of the game on whether stats were never, I don't care. If if these completes thirty percent or eight percent, it isn't the point you have. Nailed it at the point with him as he can make a play out of deacon, make chicken salad at a you-know-what any given moment in the game directly in a big moment. I and I'm in an, oh my God moment for me when I watched him play and you know, it's to me it's it's Iran Rogers with better legs right now. And you know, younger. That's closest comparison I can make is and God is exciting and how much credit do we give Andy Reid? He did it with Donovan McNabb, Alex Smith. Here he goes again, this is the guy the quarterback whisperer, maybe just someone who's took his time with them, and that is of course to Mahomes great benefit. I mean here he is still without an interception in the league. He and with fourteen touchdown passes the most in the NFL throwing the left handed pass. I just got the Jaguars best defense in the league and the chiefs, the best offense. You know, this is a game of the that really a big market game. The only thing I want to add before it gets a parting shot since you mentioned Andy Reid, what you don't want to have rub off from Andy Reid is that he's a fast starter in a bad finisher which is which is what the Kansas City Chiefs have been. What Andy Reid too much in his career has been real fast starts jumping..

"Another touchdown run last night, so yeah, that that know the offense is definitely coming around and and and makes us, you know. So he made an immediate. I mean, talk about some media. You know, first thing out of the chute he gets to. He does the right off the the form chart the, you know, the quick slant and there he goes and I down. So that's that. That was a welcome sight. I want to go back to Josh Gordon for just a center there. It's just. You know for people who don't live in New England when you watch a guy like Josh Gordon and and being a Cleveland person, Chris, you can probably comment on this to you see a guy who who after his his kind of breakout year four years ago or so. He played like five games, five games, two games, constantly in trouble. Constantly the 'having badly constantly having substance abuse issues constantly every time he's given a shot. You know, he blows it. And then he goes to New England and all of a sudden it looks like he's going to straighten up and he's going to be fantastic. And you're like, you're like Cleveland, you're going on, you kidding me. You know, for years we tried to keep you afloat and whatever, and all you did was screw up and they're going to win this. Okay. Now that I'm with Tom Brady and Bill Belichick I'll be a superstar and we have seen this happen with guys going to like really good teams or particular coach and a career's worth of trouble. He's not a. Kid. This is not some twenty two year old who's had some college problems. He's twenty seven years old with more history of being bad than good more history of trouble than accomplishments. And you just watch when fourth just just no way you just change a uniform and suddenly you become a different guy. And I don't know, I find that like, do you think this is going to hold all take? No one knows that they think they're not cross creamy. They go. Now, do you think the fingers being crossed? It's even as we speak in in the Foxborough offices. Of course, they are. Nobody knows this. That was such a welcome sight as the heartening sight. It was a, you know, professionally speaking, you know, that's exactly what they wanted the, they, they dreamed up. They haven't had anybody to make a play like that other than gronk, but no whiteouts made a play like that and years for them the seriously and that that's something that's lacking. Tom hasn't been falling down field at all, and now they got someone that can do that, but but no one knows. I mean, they're not going to know until listen until the the. The final sigh of relief will only be when the season's over and he has his hasn't been in police it or hasn't been in. We have exactly, yeah. The substance abuse policy that he violated multiple times. You know, there's we, we've been in locker rooms. We've been in clubhouse is there's an aura about a place. Sometimes it's just one guy being. There, for example, the Washington nationals of his sleep with him. We're not talking about a year in DC in the postseason you know it sure, sir, you, it's just that's the guy he's the go-to guy. There's two guys for interviews, offensive lineman, whatever the rock and of a team. And and the aura of a team is palpable and Josh Gordon. I mean those patriots. That's the team they've won. They demand respect sadly the Cleveland Browns no history of any respect. So I actually make sense to me why a guy like him as you said, Mitch, twenty-seven years old, not a kid. This is probably as last chance if he if big, if if he gets it, if he can stay clean. Well, of course it's spellcheck and Brady that he would wanna do that for and it's just that that sense of winning and a sense of a team that's got its act together, which clearly the patriots have even if there's little stuff going on. I mean, that's a team that knows how to win and knows how to. Command the field, and I'm hopeful that someone like Josh Gordon would see that and be able to be clean and and take full advantage of that new..

"He's done the job for him so far I want to shift to the game of football on because, yeah, they still going to be playing that this weekend to first before we take a look at this weekend's game, say a quick comment on the New England Patriots who seemed to have recovered from their early season str-. Struggles shall we say, I'll tell you, I hate to, I'm I don't want to be you-know-what in the Punchbowl I'm just, but I'm gonna try to be in a quote, unquote objective as possible. They're certainly they're better than they were. Last time we talked things are better. They want two games. They've the offense is come alive. No question and now they have element back. It should get even better. And Gordon caught a touchdown pass last night in a manner that no other player that they have could have done. He wanted jump ball in the end zone. That's the kind of thing that they have not had since Randy moss. Now from out the two opponents are suspect the the dolphins were clearly exposed. A lot of people thought that the three and all was fraudulent and sexually to gain third game which they won by virtue of trick. Plays and man cannot live on trick plays alone and and they're not very good and the colts have some real issues as well, and they're not very good. And so we still don't know what the real strength the I mean, the real quality level of the patriots his yet, and we'll find out sooner or later. You know, they got the chiefs on the schedule. Well, yeah, you're gonna find out sooner. That's great. That's their neck. Gay. They got the chiefs and not wait for that appointment. TV. We're going to talk about them anyway. Yes, it's better. They're three and two, and and you know, and everybody's already considering them the division. Again, the knowing that Miami, the nature will take its course and Miami will get the, you know, the seven and nine eight record that there they, they deserve and and the patriots will win that division again. Well, I'm gonna. I mean, you're gonna. You're gonna find out very fast Bob and maybe you're right. Although I do see, you know, there is a tendency for and it's called history for Bill Belichick and Tom Brady to somehow figure it out as the season goes on. But here's their next four games. Kansas City comes to play them. Is that Sunday night and yeah, Sunday night. And then they go to the bears. Okay that that's no forget that be an easy anymore. Then they go and play the bills, and then they play Green Bay. Those are their next four games. If they come out of those four games three and. One, I think we can say the healing has begun. Yeah. No, I can't wait. Now, you know before the season when he looked at the schedule schedule was really fairly favorable schedule. And when they lost Jacksonville, I thought I said, you know, that could very well be the toughest road game. They're going to have all year. This is before the bears revealed themselves to be the force that they are, what they are and they love it. Yeah, so, but and but then Green Bay's at home and Kansas City's at home, you know, so that that's the good side of it for them well, and the patriots. If there's one again, another good thing about it. Bob, I I agree with you is that the patriots are starting to become the patriots again, you know, the efficiency. Is there Eshelman this, Josh, Gordon thing. It's really interesting. I agree with you about Randy moss and the lettuce schism there. If he's really okay if they, if Bella check Brady, they can keep an eye on 'em and he's he's, you know, he's a great great player and they need him to be a guy who's got his act together. And if he does that touchdown catch last night showed us ever. Everything we need to see in terms of the fact that that Brady's Scott, these weapons now, and he can go to them and trust it and that that's half the battle or maybe even more than half the battle to make Brady Brady again and to have the patriots be right in the mix. And I expect them to be there by the, you know, at the end of the season, for sure. No must say the other thing, Chris, that they've gotten the last two weeks semblance of running game to complement the passing that got the running game that they had lacked a Saudi Michelle has actually had two very good games and..

"I think this, the all, the fireworks, all the marquee value. It's all with the keys and the Red Sox, but give me this series in terms of just as you said, the machination the strategy of this, this Indians and Astro series, and I'll just go out there and say, I think the winner of this series, I dunno, I understand the great in the Red Sox. I, I'll I'll go with the winner of the Houston, Cleveland series making it to the World Series. Well, I would not surprise me. I mean, considering you're, you're looking at in Houston and what they did last year. So. The crown sits on your head until somebody knocks it up. I want to say something about Justin Verlander I've, I've known him since he was a rookie and watched him entire career in Detroit. And then of course, from afar from Houston, he's a different guy. Now, he I think winning that that championship last year cemented in his mind that that you know he is as great as everybody has has labeled him. I watched them struggle with some of that pressure in Detroit, you know, get it done, get it done, get it done. And of course they never did win while he was here. And so you still had that tag early in his career. Chris postseason was not his friend. He was a great regular season pitcher, obviously, but he he got better at it. And now he takes a certain confidence and you could see it how he ended the season and he's just he's got everything working. He's happily married, he's he's, he's settled in. He's got a championship ring. His legacy securities gonna go to the hall of fame all. Oh, that kind of stuff. And so he now has that that relaxed confidence to go with all the stuff that he has and in a five game series where you're going to see him twice. That's pretty big and I have to favor Houston just because they've got him. I mean there there are many other reasons as well. They, they have a hell of a lineup, although offensively they have not been as good as they were last year, and that's what they're going to have to count on. Everybody's sort of a few numbers few digits back from where they were last year, but just to be able to have him and start him, and we're not even talking about Dallas cocoa you know another side of the street as you mentioned, there's three Cy Young award winners there. I don't know. I I like I like Houston's chances to get back, but also by the way, little little little known little thing. I don't know how those last time this happened, Bob, the entire series will be played in sunlight. How about that? How about that? I, it makes me wanna come out of retirement, cover it just because you know, we lived for day games, you know, that's because the Yankees Red Sox get all the. Yeah, no, that's good stuff. Yeah, the Astros it does some kind of misconception around the they. They had the sneaky. One hundred and three when season ever didn't. They. Yeah. I mean, they're, they're, they're very much the same as last year. I mean, now they're ready to well. They're much th. They're ready to go there like the Yankees and the dodgers. I think they're ready to go right now. They're happy. They're whole is going to be an added. They the big question Mark two months ago, three months ago, of course, was the bullpen, what are they going to do the clothes? And then they picked up the controversial, assume Raphael sooner which is always going to be an issue with a lot of people forever and that they decided to to take him with the domestic violence charges hanging over his head, and but they needed a closer in the kind of held their nose and took him and and he he's done..

"An MVP doesn't have a whole lot of postseason experience. You know, you don't get that around here in Detroit, and you know, I, I don't know if he's, you know, guys have to do the same thing that they've done in the regular season as they do in the postseason and we'll see in five games, and that's a big part of this story for the history of this. And I think a lot of fans are surprised that they're now learning to realize that these guys have not met in the postseason since since two thousand four. Since the, you know, the socks broke the curse, Chris because they play so often, and they're on ESPN all the time on a featured Sunday night game or something like that. It just seems if you don't live in Boston and New York, it seems like you're constantly seeing Boston and New York playing all the time all the time all the time, but a five. Game series is so different than a seven game series and who gets a quick jump has so much to do with it. And and I hate the fact that it's five games because I want to settle into this, you know, really watch the strategy move and see guys, maybe pitched three times. See one of those game sevens where you're bringing you're bringing your best guy starting pitcher in in the fourth inning to relieve somebody else, but five games plays a big difference. Don't you think Bob? Yes, it does. Definitely a different dynamic more sense of urgency with five. It is different thing. I explored that many times over the years talking to people about that very thing by the way just want to you mentioned Luke Voight when the Red Sox played the Yankees and swept them in the four-game series in August early August, a judge didn't play at all. But I remember thinking when I saw the lineup the the first night, oh my God, the Yankees are so desperate that they have to play this guy voided. Voight in the lineup, seriously, you know, you've just been picked up from the cardinals. I, I knew nothing about them a prior to this year and never know he existed. I didn't remember his previous incarnations at all and never heard of him. And now he's, he's in the lineup in this pivotal series, you know, in August and against the whistle. I'm feeling sorry for the Yankees. They got a resort using Luke Voight and look what he has done. Look good, his production. He's a in another very dangerous, bad in that lineup. So can we move to the other series that potentially could give us the actual World Series Representative from the American League? I speak obviously as a northern Ohio, and, but I'm kind of teasing of course, but glad you glad you put that out there. Chris. We wanna known otherwise, no, no, no, no, no. Although I grew up as a Tigers fan as you know, we look north from Toledo, but but you know, the Indians and the hard lock that they have had and coming so close. And here they are again, I think really any four of the teams in the AL could go to the World Series and it's not a shocking thing to say, right. I mean, these are great teams each and every one and it's natural. As you guys said to focus on the Red Sox and the of course, that's that's the as close as we come to a national baseball rivalry understood of historic, etc. But this matchup and you've got Cory kluber who's who's struggled in the postseason last year is twenty and seven. So he's got the twenty wins this year, but down the stretch, he's even struggled a bed and the Indians, everything is hinging on him going against. I mean, this matchup just just absolutely terrific. Going against. Of course, Justin Verlander who. Who knows what it's like to be there who has done this before. Mitch, you sat in the press box, watching him do it before and Detroit, all those years when the Tigers were good and made the postseason. And of course the Astros the defending champs, they clearly want to prove that they are back and just as strong as last year..

"That undercard in Vegas where you never heard either one of them and I think we obviously have to talk about the Yankees and the Red Sox and the Yankees have had, you know, a hell of a week year as well had to survive a very, very tough game against Oakland. I mean, they didn't make didn't look tough, but that was no easy out. The Oakland A's. And now they bring in Bob, you have been talking about this, and I've been thinking about you're talking about this for weeks that the Red Sox, despite having a hundred and eight wins are at least in your mind. And perhaps a lot of people in Boston's mind an underdog going into this Yankees team, particularly beginning with their starting pitcher, Chris sale who the quote that I read from him in the story is whatever I've got. I'll use it and we'll find a way to win. That's not exactly the confidence statement you want from your starting pitcher in game one. Now that's where they are. That's where he is. He. Has less pitched as Chris sale in the middle of August. And when he when he had a fantastic start in which he struck out twelve guys on sixty eight pitches something I still think is one of the most amazing stats of the year and but then immediately the next day went on the DL for the second time this year and in his subsequent appearances has not looked like that Chris sale. And so he goes to the mount tonight and no-one no-one can be sure nobody knows. Alex Cora doesn't know. Chris sale doesn't know. No one knows exactly what you know. He the last time we saw stowing ninety nine. Oh, not ninety. Seven ninety eight nine. Oh, and there's a hell of a difference than we don't know what to expect from him. And then you then game two will be David price who has had a notorious of postseason record is Owen six with a ballooning, big balloon ERA. And then the third game is report solo who has also not wanna playoff game and collectively their own eleven starting pitchers in the postseason. So this is why there's a lot of trepidation here in Boston as particularly because the Yankees are whole now and that lineup is terrifying that it is. I mean, there's their production in seven, eight and nine is is what most teams would be happy to get in three, four and five, and they're, they are ready now. The Yankees are ready to go, and so they will be a extremely tough out well and Bob, the the fact that the Yankees got that extra gay men. I mean, I think it's for them to beat the as and to beat them so decisively granted, it was home for the for the Yankee Stadium, but still it's almost like a running start, you know? And I think you've just described this the pressure. I mean, there's pressure on both teams and they're pros and they get it. We, you know everyone listening to us knows that we all know about that. But nonetheless, I mean, oh my goodness, the angst. I don't have to describe it to you Mr. Boston. But if if the Ke's win and it certainly. Could happen this game one as you said sale. You know, I think they were saying he came back at ninety eight ninety nine miles per hour after the first trip to the d. l. and but it's it's may not be that at all. And as he hit -able under ninety five or ninety and watch out. And so then the entire season, it's not like it melts away. It's the thing of beauty. You put it in a box and put on the shelf, and it's it's memorable forever, but it's it's such a sour taste if you don't move on. So the pressure mounts and these guys can handle it one would think, but I can just all my friends and relatives in the Boston area. I could feel it right now. Everyone's kind of coiled up and and and more nervous than anticipatory or excited. And I think that's, that's I understand that because I think you're right. The Yankees are just so good and so ready to beat the Red Sox. Another place where there's pressure to the two managers to to skippers. Who are going to be scrutinized, but question and and in this rivalry in and there's not much being set about that, but just remember that they are in fact, and and and this in the.

"And I mean that that was a big blow at that time. I mean, it could have been crucial talk about, yeah, you know, the brewers are nothing if not resilient. I mean, they were back five games behind the cubs as late as September. Second. Of course there on a great run here. I think we three agree that if you could pick a team, what would you rather have just a dominant team from the entire season or a team that's on a roll. At this point, you'd pick a course that team that's on the role and and that the brewers are that team Christian yelich leaves Miami and comes not only to this this strong brewers team, but it makes it stronger, but comes to a great hitting park and a great hitter's park, and he is in a place now. Obviously, I think we can probably all agree. He'll be the MVP that the sense that he is on is is just on fire. And then of course you got move stock as who has this great of history with in postseason with the royals. You helped, of course, the royals to win the World Series a few years ago and he's got, I just looked this up. He's got six homers fifteen RBI in the postseason. So when the brewers have what they've got going and are on a roll and streaking. The way they are, and then you've got, you can go to a guy who has helped another team win the World Series for team. As you said. It's not been too postseason very often. It's it's a perfect collection of things all happening in the right way at the right time. And I'm haunted the first one to salute them for the way they went after it this year that they, they did the right thing for their fans, and they the not a large market team, but they went after it and they added the important pieces to the puzzle as the season went on and they're getting the benefit of it. I think it's great. And by the way, considered the week for the Colorado Rockies okay. I mean, they go to the end of the of the entire hundred sixty two campaign and they got to find out that they gotta play the dodgers in Los Angeles for one extra game to determine who's going to win the division so that go out to Los Angeles and they played that game and they lose. So now they have to play the Chicago. Cubs in a wildcard game to determine if they're going to have a postseason at all that go out to Chicago and they win the game two to one taking on a lot of karma with the Chicago Cubs, then they get into the playoffs. So they have to fly over to Milwaukee where they lose three to two in the tenth inning. I mean, this is all happened in in what five less than five, four days. And Thursday Milwaukee week actually a bus ride literally. And that's a good thing about that, but, oh, no, it it's been a tremendously, you know, energy wild week for them. No, no question. Now they really twist from Chicago to Milwaukee to ninety nine miles. Anybody a bus anymore? No, they literally took. They took the bus far as we'd be by the time you you taxied on the runway at O'Hare. In the air for about five or six minutes to get to Milwaukee. I'm I'm, I'm of the mind that they all these teams now have their own planes waiting outside the exit door of the stadium, and they just take off from the street anyhow. Okay. Let's shift over to the American League where. Drama ensues, drama weights. This is this is your right? Chris. This is such a great time of year for baseball for all the especially if they're longtime baseball fans who just get tired of the hundred sixty two campaign and the endless highlights and all the rest of it. However tired you get from that. Your excitement can get rekindled when you when you look at what's what's facing you here now, and the Red Sox and Yankees. And the Indians in Astros which I know everyone's talking Red Sox Yankees. It's not like Indians. Astros is a cheap. Second. Look, you know, that's going to be a great series. It's not the JV game, right?.

"So I mean, I it wasn't as much of a Campbell against as it looks from the outside. And you know, you can talk about two and four all you want, but the significant numbers, two and five. But the significant number may be one and four, and that's what that's what you really want. If you're a team, you wanna get it over with sooner and prepare for the next thing. So they are the dodgers just just look right now to be peaking at the right time. They turned the hundred sixty third game into a romp. No, yesterday was a romp you know, th there we can't even. You know, we haven't talked about they're hitting, but they're obviously doing doing well offensively and yeah, my money go back there game one sixty two. And by the way. For the thunder as well. You know the so I love the excuse me. I love you idea that the delightfully alliterative max Muncie hit a three-run blast yesterday, you know, every time I see this name, max max, Muncie all I can think of is the natural right. Well, that's the first name to max mercy, mercy, congress by Robert Duvall becoming a go Hobbs. They come in a go max mercy. And when I saw maximum, I just held. But the guy is no joke, the guy, the guys, the guys had a chequered career and suddenly found himself. I think, twenty seven years old, I believe. And he gives them another in a home run threaten Atlanta bit of three win bomb yesterday. All right. Let's go over to the. Let's go over to the other league game, which the the brewers just keep on on on percolating. They're and they're, they're a great story. And I think Christian yelich right now can actually beat some teams singlehandedly. Thank you. Can put them out there and he'll be an entire roster. He was doing it again. It gets a two run Homer scores, the winning run that they have to go to extra innings to do it. You know, the the kind of blew it in the ninth inning. And for you know, a team that's not in the playoffs a whole lot. That can kind of ruin you. You know, I've seen teams kind of collapse under that pressure. Well, we had a to nothing lead. We go to the top of the night and we'd give it up, but they came back strong and and I think this is going to go a long way for them. Yeah, that was was I was thinking, you know, when this disastrous when they couldn't get it done in the ninth and sure enough, they didn't waste any time taking care of business, the lasting memory. I will take away from that game on the things that I saw did not see the whole game was the Charlie Blackmon fair foul down the right field line that shot. If how thank God for replay because there's no way the naked eye could determine whether that ball was fair afoul. It was a matter of an eighth of an inch that it was. It was legitimately foul, but it kicked up the dust..

"He basically said he positioned it the way that you know, all managers should position at, hey, this way we get them in game two, and we can still have him in game five. Everybody gets on five days rest and there's, there's some argument to that, but we all know that there's a certain status in going out as as the first guy out, you know, to to defend the club and Clayton Kershaw said, all. All the right things. It's so funny because he reminds me so much of of Matthew Stafford and they grew up together and they both kind of answer questions the same way. They diffuse things and they, you know, he said, hey, we was having a great season and why shouldn't he? But it was an interesting move. I don't think with Kershaw, it's going to do anything other than maybe making more determined to win game too. But it took a little guts on the part of the manager there because if it blows up on you, it's like, are you kidding? We're paying? This guy will this money and he's the of the staff and you don't start him. So thank goodness for the dodgers sake that were you pitched? Not only well. I mean, they shut him out and he absolutely gave him the confidence and why not? And he's a great story in and of himself. They make that things like that. Make the manager look the very smart or very dumb. And right now, Dave Roberts looks very smart Kershaw isn't the same as he wants was he's this. His velocity is down to you. Know to a degree that it matters. He he's on the over the hill. I mean, not, you know, he's not. I mean, I mean, he's just very. Behind spit out, rhyme. Range of his prime is that a good way of his very, very best day so behind him, but he's still remains one of the elite pitchers in baseball. He just not that it's just not the the ultra dominant Cy Young guy. But you know, you mentioned the two into five in the old days. You know how well are back. We have to go well, at least into the sixties. The old days you would have had him start one on the assumption and hope that he could start one, four and seven. Now it's two and five. No seriously Mason one, four and seven, right? Lou Lubar debt and fifty one, but now it's too in five and and that that I think that was a very big factor that he could start five if there was a five well and going back to you, you know, this guy ended. Great. I mean, he was almost I think he gave up one run in his last. You know what? Twenty six twenty five, twenty six. Something like that. Grady IRA and he was injured for three months, a torn groin and you know if he's not injured, you could be talking about him. Potentially in the Cy Young Ray so gamble. Yes. But then in some ways, not a gamble at all and you can make the case that Kershaw. Yes. Now the second game, you know, pitching game to can come back and game five and maybe a little pressures off. But then you could also say, wow, if Kershaw doesn't hold it up on his end for small great move by the dodgers to at least get the one win game. One withdrew, but also there is pressure. There's great pressure on Kershaw now to basically take the ball and say, hey, I'm still the guy and I can do this what my teammates has did. And all the drama of that, I think makes it even more fun to watch and you made a good point Chris in that. I mean, he's, he's, he's been hurt so much of his crews, thirty one, and there are probably people out there hearing of him for the first time and they're saying, oh, would they pick up like a Korean rookie? No, he's been around a long time, but he's constantly been hurt. He said, terrible luck with the different injuries including this year, and I'm reading statistically. I had no idea that his even though it says first postseason starting four years, he's actually thrown seven scoreless innings on two occasions for the dodgers. The only other dodgers in history to do that are sandy Colfax Jerry Royce and oral Hershiser..

"Yes, it is the podcast version of the long-running TV show on ESPN same idea only you don't get to see our faces, which at this early in the morning is probably a good idea, especially after staying up late watching baseball games and the postseason is off to a great start. I mean, what a week? Anyhow, you know, if you just talked about last night, we're already got lots of talk about earlier in the week. Of course, the the, the elimination games and the wild card games which were just amazing. And here we are now the dodgers roll through all of that, and they look like arguably the hottest team and the team to beat right now, especially since they just shut out a team without Clayton. Kershaw on the mount of very big surprise in their starting pitcher. What what do we make of that in the dodgers chances right now, I'd say the dodgers are trending upward very well at the right time, and that I, they would have to be in my eyes the the most logical team to emerge from the National League when this is all said and done this weekend and. They and remember they, they have a payroll that should just the they need to justify, but and there's a lot of angst out there in LA from what I gather that the pressure on to win thirty years since day one. And this group is well, this era, this this museum, they've his six years in a row that wanted division and and they got very close last year and and they they need it. And I think people out there are very ANSI. They really need it. I agree with you. I think first of all is you said Mitch, this week, what a great week, this one baseball at its best, you know, and you, you know, the cubs are eliminated in his great as team. The second half of the season they're gone and now you've got, well, we'll get to the AL I'm sure. But the nationally is I completely agree. I think it's the dodgers to lose. I think they're going to win. I think they will make it to the World Series. There's a long way to go yet the when you look though as much as we're focused right now on the on this this week and postseason which I know they're purists who say one game. Teams out, you know, the wild card games, whatever. None, the less I think you see the dodgers is a work in progress, the NFL west and all of the machinations and the the back and forth, and wondering who was gonna win it. And then you have to have the playoff game to or the the one hundred sixty third game to find out that the dodgers are and l. west champs that worked out perfectly for the dodgers because it gave them time to figure their team out. And because they were so good last year and they got to got to the World Series now coming back this year and then the extra for Kershaw. So now you're going with Kershaw, you figure they go up to zip again. You never know, but the dodgers I think with their mix of veterans, some young guys getting Machado all of that put together it almost I, it would be a disappointment if they don't make it even though I know Milwaukee's big story. I think the dodgers of the class of the National League. Well, let's not bury the lead in terms of the drama of the story. Re re you getting the start instead of Clayton Kershaw. Now, I'm I'm one of those people when it comes to baseball that it's one of those things you know who opens on opening day, who gets the start in the playoffs. There seems to be for me a little bit too much tradition involved in that decision and not enough strategy. I've watched a lot of baseball teams go with the guy who has always been the guy and get burned for it instead of going with the hot hand, and that did not happen day Robertson the LA dodgers. He didn't care about Clayton Kershaw as money or is ego..
