Kneepads on for Phil
"You brought up Phil and I'm glad to get because I saw a stat today because the PGA Tour just released their 2023 season. All their events are 44 events. They've gone up to $425 million next year, the price money, okay? Yeah. That is 20 million more than the live next year. The live has 14 events, 405 million. Do you think that every single professional golfer in the entire world that's on a major tour should have their knee pads out for Phil Mickelson sending them $10,000 bottles of wine, whatever the hell he wants it. Yeah, I mean, Mickelson and, I mean, the two, two controversial. Some people would call it a controversial last year, but really Nicholson and Norman, because I mean, the tour, the tour, that tour never happens without Norman, Norman's kind of vendetta with the PGA Tour, right? He tried to hook. He tried to do a similar thing years ago in the PJ tour came up with the wgc to squash it. And then Phil kind of talking about it. And I mean, you can say TV contract, you can say whatever, but purses go up every single year, they don't go up this much though. Like not even close. So I think without a doubt, the better guys, the best guys they know, they know why the purses are going up. They're not idiots. Every single person with a brain knows why purses have gone up on the PGA Tour, but the better guys should really go knee pad nation because they're going to get all these no cut events too, that are basically live events. There are many live events built into the PGA Tour.
Remember the Elián González Saga?
"Just reminds I love it when there are all these strange political bedfellows. It goes back to ilian Gonzalez in the Clinton administration. Remember the little boy in a little Havana in Miami? His mother drowned bringing him into the country and the father in Cuba wanted the little boy back and Janet Reno's Justice Department broke down the door and they swiped the kid from the arms of the relatives and delivered the boy back to communist Cuba. Remember that? And I remember at the time I was at a conference with a bunch of talk show hosts and all the big mouths on the radio gathered, which is rough. That's not a place I'm not real comfortable because I believe me, I'm mindful that I'm one of those big mouths and no one knew what position to take because it was, I mean, it was Clinton and we don't want to be pro Clinton, but on the other hand, family values, the kids being returned to daddy back in Cuba. Yeah, but it's communist Cuba. It's Phil de Fidel Castro. No one knew what to do. Well, the same thing's happening here. He got Tom Friedman from The New York Times lashing out at Pelosi. You've got Tucker Carlson from Fox News, condemning Pelosi. You've got, I guess, Pelosi supporters loving what she's doing. And you've got the Biden administration letting her go.

"That yelling and hooting took place, I don't deny, but it was Friends of the excelsiors and not of ours. So he's saying it wasn't our supporters. It was supporters of their team. Now we had another rebuttal by FH cowperthwaite, the captain of the excelsiors, FH cowperthwaite. Amazing. Wrote in to say your correspondent is mistaken in saying that either the Niagara's or their friends treated us unfairly. They acted as gentlemen on every occasion and the hooting spoken of by tempest fugit was made by outsiders, enemies of both clubs. So Richard says, sadly, the mystery of the identity of the Hooters remains unsolved. Fortunately, the problem seldom arises today, fans but rarely calling out players as shanks. However, they do often call them other things, but we're accustomed to that. At that time, it was seen, I think, as somewhat unusual to even have large crowds showing up to these games at first when that happened, they were like, who are these people? They're not playing in the game. Why are they watching us play? But this was, I guess, what are you doing here? Why are you here in this place we built for you to watch us this will work. Right, and then eventually they figure it out, oh, people like watching this, I maybe we can sell them tickets. And the rest is history. But this, I guess, was the origin of people just standing by and hooting and things, and maybe even interfering with the game at times, so we don't know whether it was supporters of the Niagara's or the excelsiors, or neither. But someone was shouting disruptive remarks and even pretending that a foul ball had been hit to disrupt the play, just a bunch of cranks out there, and they've never gone away. Yeah, I mean, their persistent those cranks. And that was a term I think for baseball fans was cranks at the time, but now we would use that in a different context as well. Anyway, thanks for the history minute or whatever we actually end up calling this. All right, I'll leave you with a little etymology here in case anyone was wondering about sticky wicket, here's what Wikipedia says, wicket has several meanings in cricket in this case, it refers to the rectangular area, also known as the pitch in the center of the cricket field between the stumps. The wicket is usually covered in a much shorter grass than the rest of the field or entirely bare, making it susceptible to variations in weather, which in turn caused the ball to bounce differently. If rain falls and the wicket becomes wet, the ball may not bounce predictably, making it very difficult for the batter. Furthermore, as the pitch dries, conditions can change swiftly, with spin bowling being especially devastating as the ball can deviate laterally from straight by several feet. Once the wet surface begins to dry in hot sun, the ball will rise sharply steeply and erratically. A good length ball becomes a potential lethal delivery, most batters on such wickets found it virtually impossible to survive, let alone score. Certain cricketers developed reputations for their outstanding abilities to perform on sticky wickets. So that is why that is used as a metaphor for a difficult circumstance. Also, as for Shanghai or Shanghai, it originally was the practice of kidnapping people to serve as sailors by coercive techniques such as trickery, intimidation, or violence. So in the 1850s, that term joined the lexicon, along with the words crimping and sailor thieves, so the 1850s was when that quote came from that term had just become popularized, seemingly because Shanghai was a common destination of the ships with abducted crews, so they'd say that they were sailing to Shanghai and then it expanded just to mean kidnapped or induced to do something by means of fraud or coercion. So evidently the original meaning may not have been pejorative, but maybe best avoided nonetheless. As for shank, I really don't know. Hopefully it doesn't mean something horrible. I don't think it's the shank as in golf shaking, a poorly played shot. That seems to have come along later. It can mean crooked or to send off without ceremony, your guess is as good as mine. Also wanted to mention on our last episode, I noted that there was an incident of an umpire being caught on the PA mic talking to another empire and seemingly not saying anything very interesting and we lamented that there had not been something juicier overheard. Well, there have been a couple more instances that made me think of that. There was one report that on June 1st, the home plate ump with his mic still accidentally on had told Adam Duvall that he is having a good hair day as it turned out it seems to have been the PA person or someone the PA person was talking to who had entered the PA room and they said you had a good hair day and that was broadcast to everyone, so that seemingly was not actually the umpire. Then there was a case of umpire Tom hallion. He of S and the jackpot fame being overheard saying, once I send it to New York, it's their fucking call. He was talking to one of the benches about a replay review, but I'm pretty sure that was just caught on the TV mic, not on the umpires, Mike. However, there was one more case again involving Halley and who can't seem to avoid being overheard, and this was a legitimate one. He put in the earbud as he was preparing to make a call over the PA, and then the earbud fell out of his ear, and frustrated, he said something loud with the mic on, and both the fans and the broadcasters enjoyed it. And now you can enjoy it. Here it is. So a replay review is underway. All right, so. Fires here wired up to sound. So we're.

"Well, well. I mean, it's tricky because so if I were them, I would be conscious of the fact that next year, at least from a luxury payroll, a luxury tax payroll perspective, and granted, you know, they're going to have to replace some number of these guys, but they are due to take like a $100 million dip in payroll just by letting free agent contracts expire next year. And they're going to need to, they're going to need to replace some of these dudes. Like some guys, you might have an on roster answer to already, like you're just going to play start at short instead of DD gregorious, but you get a need like a lot of a bull. Right, yeah. And part of a rotation. So it's not as if they are necessarily going to stay at that level, but they are going to have some attrition next year, you know, Gregorius is a free agent or a neighbor and Kyle Gibson and familiar and Brad hand and Carrera is a free agent next year and I think they have a mutual option for Zac eflin, so that isn't an actual thing that happens. It's just like they're for reasons. And so you could say if you were then we're going to have payroll flexibility next year relative to where we're sitting currently. So what if we took on money at the deadline as a way to reinforce what we have, knowing that next year we're going to dip down below like several luxury tax thresholds. Yeah. They do have a lot coming off the books, but they also still have a lot on the books, at least relative to other teams, like sure. Currently, they have the fourth highest payroll according to the handy dandy roster resource payroll breakdown page after the mets, the Dodgers and the Yankees, so one of those teams is not like the others in terms of who put the bank for the buck that they've got in the season. You can also sort the 2023 2024 and 2025 payroll commitments on this page. And if you do that, they are third in terms of 2023 commitments after the two New York teams. They are first in 2024 commitments and they are second in 2025 commitment. So they have real Muto and Harper in Wheeler and obviously all those guys have been good, but those guys are under team control for a few more years at least. In some cases, much longer. And then you have the recently signed schwarber and Castellanos contracts, right? So that is a lot of, I guess, for a handful of players, now if they were to continue spending at this current level, then you're right, they would still have some room to maneuver there. I don't know that they will be able to convince ownership to stay at that level or whether it was like a, hey, we're already this far invested. Let's make one more push and actually try to win with this team for once. But it's tough when you don't have a foundation a core of homegrown players who kind of came up through your system and actually panned out. They've just been lacking that. And so they've tried to supplement from outside and they've hit on some great free agent signings, but I guess the ones that they tried to make this past off season have not really rewarded them to the same extent. Schwarber and Castellanos have combined to be exactly replacement level according to baseball reference war. They are a bit better than that according to fan graphs word, but they're both in that one O 7 one O 8 WRC plus rash, which is not going to cut it for them, given their other shortcomings. Speaking of which, the Phillies now officially do have the worst team defensive run saved total and the worst team outs above average total. So as was foretold, they have been the worst offensive team in baseball now by those metrics. And it's not going to get better, probably unless Bryce Harper can play defense again at some point. So it's just like a weirdly built team. Yes, it is a very strangely built team. Dave Nebraska took over and, you know, instead of doing the whole full scale rebuild, which would have been pretty depressing to embark on that at this point, he did the latter day Dave dumbrowski move of convince owners to spend more on prominent free agents and it seemed like there was a chance that that could work, but thus far it has not worked. So I just, it's a sticky situation. It's like, I don't know if it's hopeless and again, like they still have a shot, they could turn this thing around this season, but the best they could hope is that they squeak into a third wild card or something like clearly it's not a good team. It's not like a perennial contender, which is what you want when you come out of a long-term rebuild. So that ship has already sailed. Yeah. And it's funny because like, so, you know, our numbers are estimates, right? But they did that weird thing where they went over a luxury tax threshold by a little bit, but not by a lot of it. It could be worse, but with they are the first luxury tax threshold is 230 million and we have their payroll estimated for tax purposes at two 36. So like you might say, oh no, there are already over the threshold or you might say, well, the next threshold is two 50, and you're already going to pay tax in this bracket. So why not just blow it out a little bit, but I don't know if I have a ton of confidence in how they'd spend because they built their team so strangely and I don't know how you remedy all of these issues. So it is a sticky wicked, you know?.

"However, numbers two through four on the pitcher were we reported fan graphs. Tariq's Google marking Perez and updated through his performance on Thursday, Nestor Cortes. Yeah. So it's not necessarily who I would have foreseen. I guess Joe musgrove and Zach Wheeler are tied at the top of the NL leader board, which is maybe more predictable. But after gusman, it goes scuba, Paris, Cortes, and scuba, I guess, has established himself as the best so far the most promising of that trio of Detroit pitchers because my is Casey meiss has been out with an elbow injury and that Manning has been out with a shoulder injury and Tarek skubal is absolutely dealing. And there's been great. And then we've talked about Cortes recently and how amazing he's been. Martin Perez is maybe the most like who, what? Why? Easily the most surprising. Yeah. Which I don't know what to make of that. He has a 1.42 ERA right now. He is a 2.35 5th. He is not allowed a home run in ten starts in 63 plus innings. But the poll has on we. So what does that even mean? Yeah, the ball does have on Wii, but he has a two 54 and a 0.0 home run per fly ball rate. So that's kind of turning. He is throwing more sinkers. He is inducing more grounders. So maybe that's part of it, and he's had better control. So again, like the peripherals are strong, even the ex fip is strong, but not like 1.42 ERA. So he's had flashes before he's had stretches where he was quite effective, but for the most part, he has been an average two below average pitcher. So I was not expecting to see Martin Perez close to the top of a pitcher war leaderboard, even in early June, but there he is. So that's weird and fun. It's weird and fun. I don't know. I like it when we have real randos at the top of the leaderboards. 'cause, you know, a couple of things are happening, either a guy is having the best stretch of his career, in which case we should applaud it because it's probably going to change for him, or he has done something to remake himself in a way that will make us pay attention to him for longer. And I think both of those are exciting. So yeah. So last thing, what are we going to do about these Phillies? Or more accurately, what are the Phillies going to do about themselves? Because I subscribe to the baseball reference newsletter, which I recommend, it comes every day during the season. And it's just a little snapshot of what happened the night before, so they give you the top offensive performers in the top pitching performers, and then sometimes they tell you what the hottest teams are players over the last 15 or 30 days are that give you the scoreboard. Maybe they give you a little stat head, fun fact, spotlight, they tell you who made their major league debuts, they give you some matchups and probables to look forward to. It's just a nice little thing. It takes me a minute to read gets me caught up on some things. But one of the things they tend to do in there is they have the biggest play of the previous days games by win probability added. So just like what was the biggest swing? And I think the newsletters after both Monday and Tuesday, the biggest play was a play in the Phillies favor, and usually not always, but usually the player who produced that biggest play was on the winning team that day, because they had a big win probability swing in their favor. In this case, though, the Phillies lost both of the games despite having the biggest play be in their favor in both of those games. They ended up losing them nonetheless, both to the Giants. And so, as we speak here, now entering Thursday's games, the Phillies are not only way back in the NL east and everyone is because the mets have just kept up their furious pace and they now have a ten and a half game lead in the east on Atlanta 12 and a half on the Phillies 13 on the Marlins. That's like one of the biggest leads ever. I think in the divisional era at this date and the state the season started a little later than sometimes it has. So it's pretty impressive that performance by the mets and pretty unimpressive the collective performance by the rest of the NL east, where there's no other 500 team. But the Phillies are not only way back in the division there at 22 and 29, but they're also I think now 6 games out in the NL wild card race of 6 games out of the third slot there behind the Giants and there are four teams, I think, in between the Giants and the Phillies, that would be the Diamondbacks, the braves, the rockies, and yes, the pirates as a number of people have pointed out, have the best record of a Pennsylvania baseball team currently. So the Phillies have the greatest loss in fan grass playoff ads since the start of the season, they are down 38.7 percentage points as we speak. So they started out as more than likely more than a coin flip to make the playoffs and now they are down to 20.8%, which given how they've played recently, feels almost too optimistic. Anyway, there have been calls for Joe Girardi's head or at least his job. He does seem to be on the wobbly chair at this point. He has said that he is not worried about his job security, just because generally he does not worry about his job security and he just tries to do the best job he can and if he gets fired, so be it, I suppose. So a lot of other people are unhappy with George Girardi's performance, but obviously it's not just Joe Girardi. So what do you do if you are the Phillies and you find yourself in this spot yet again? I mean, they've been 500 ish year after year after they've been expected to come out of the rebuild and be a winning team. And now they are sub 500 and they're finding spectacular ways to lose. And it's not a pretty baseball team in terms of the aesthetics of their play and also not in terms of the results recently. So I don't know what you do. Do you just keep throwing money at this problem? Is there hope on the horizon? Do you just blow it up and say, well, this rebuild failed? We're going to just try again. I don't know..

"All because of Spartans left Fielder Jordan Lala, who used a trick play taught to the team during spring training workouts by Tampa Bay Rays center Fielder Kevin kiermaier, who taught them how to deco runner into breaking too soon for home. On that type of play and or so the coach said it was an amazing play that you may never see again. So kir Meyer explained that the plan is to camp under the ball with the glove held high so that the runner thinks it will be a routine catch. Then to pull the glove down and not make the catch until just before the ball hits the ground, creating enough of a slight delay for the runner to break early. So you deke the runner into thinking that the catch is going to be made at shoulder height or head height or wherever. And then the runner goes anticipating when the catch is going to be made. And the Fielder, then doesn't catch the ball at that level, but yanks their glove down, catches it just before it hits the ground. And in that gap, while the ball is flying from head height and falling down to knee height or whatever, the runner has already left the base, then the Fielder makes the catch and then can just make a leisurely throw to the base to catch the runner who now tagged up early. So there is a video of this and I will play the audio call of this play. Winning run at third, one out, bottom of the 9th, Spartans with a drawn in infield. The pitch to Frank.

"But everyone else or most other players are sad about this because their balls aren't going so far. But if you're Aaron judge, and you declined to sign a very lucrative contract extension. And now you are one of the only players who can hit a home run and you must be the real. Because and this is sort of consistent with what we have seen in the variation of the ball over the years, which is the players who benefited the most from the very juicy baseball. Were players who otherwise struggled to hit home runs at all, whereas guys who had thunderous thump in their bets to begin with didn't benefit as much because they weren't hitting wall scrapers. They were just hitting a bunch of home runs because they were big and strong. And so that the opposite would be true as unsurprising. But as I sat there and I watched Jaron judge hit a home run today, I was like, you know, Pete Alonso thought that Major League Baseball was juicing or deducing the ball depending on the upcoming free agent class to rob free agents of potential money. But what if the real caper is that Aaron? Judge. Did you sell the walls? This year because he wants to dominate the free agent market. I would never accuse him of being so decorous and inconsiderate of his fellow players, because I doubt that that is consistent with his values, but he sure is benefiting from a fishy situation. Yes, a few follow-ups to things you just said. First, I guess it would actually be easier to hit a home run in a vacuum if you yourself can breathe. Just because less air resistance. There would be very challenging. Yes, it would. SIS, I believe, classifies certain plays as good fielding place, so maybe I assume that a home run robbery is classified as a good fielding play. And I guess if you're in judge and you get back there and you stick your hand up and you catch the ball, it's a good feeling play. It's not a great fielding play. Maybe you could count it as a home run robbery, but not a good field of play. I don't know. Maybe that's a way to adjust the books, balance the book somehow here. And also, yeah, Aaron judge, that was his 19th home run. Of the season. That's a lot of dingers. It's a lot. As we speak, I guess between Yankees games, maybe he has a one 97 WRC plus on the season. So yeah, that bet on himself that he made, at least through almost the first two months of the season. Working out pretty well. So I think he got a decent offer if the reported terms of that offer were accurate, but thus far, it seems like if he were able to keep this up, he might do even better than that as dense and borsky just blogged. I think had some zips projections in there and judge has raised what his contract recommendation would be, it's still not as high as I think what the Yankees reportedly offered him just because of his age and his health and durability and so forth, which was probably on the Yankees minds when they were crafting their offer? Yeah, I likely would be on other teams minds when they were crafting their own offers. Right. Yeah, and you figure judges, maybe a bit more valuable to the Yankees than two other teams just because he has a reputation in New York and has sold a lot of jerseys and brings some marquee value with him. But yeah, he is having a fantastic start to the season. It's like he's the only one tall enough to go on the ride now with the new bubble. So he's just not having to wait in line. He is just writing it over and over again. Although the balls and offense in general have picked up a bit, but they are still down historically speaking. There's one jar of olives on the uppermost shelf and he is the only one who can reach it. Right. So I wanted to mention while we were talking about outfield catches, another pretty special outfield catch, and this was from a college game this past weekend and was brought to our attention by listener and Patreon supporter Ryan. And we were talking about hidden ball tricks and the lack thereof and other types of defensive tricks and trickery that fielders could practice. And this is a great one because I have not seen or heard of this being done before and I applaud the innovation in the boldness and just the, I guess the slate of hand happening here. So this happened in a regional final game in division two. So I guess it was a regional tournament and Tampa was playing the Tampa Spartans and they were playing nova and what happened here. I'm cribbing from a Tampa Bay times piece, but Tampa was about to be eliminated. There was a 9th inning fly ball to deep left center and the winning run was going to score. I think it was maybe first and third and one out. And so this seemed like a certain sac fly, and it was going to be maybe not a strict walk off situation as we discussed recently in a pedantic segment, but not a pedantic walk off, but at least kind of technically a walk off and certainly a game ending play. So the Tampa coach Joe urso, he said, you know the game's over, I kind of put my notes down, put my head down, told his associate head coach, man, that's it. I start walking down the dugout, and then I started hearing he left early, he left early, so the runner tagged up here and expected to just go as soon as the ball was cut and not even have to hurry home necessarily because this was a pretty deep fly and it was a fast runner, but what happened was that the nova runner tagged up and left early and then was called out on appeal and so the game went on and eventually Tampa won the game in 12 innings and this was.

"Yes, the step last shirt has a few stats in it, and they're all Easter eggs for effective listeners. So there's a two 47, which is the famous Chris Davis consecutive seasons batting average. There's a one O 5 in there, which is Ryan Webb's total of his record for games finished without a save. And then there's a 1422, which is Barry Bonds 2004 OPS and was also Sam Miller's bike lock for a while, possibly still is his code for that. So that's great. And the shirts range in price and they also range in color and design. I think they all come in small up to three XL. I think from what I saw the how can you not be pedantic about baseball T-shirt is available in a broader range of styles. So I think there's just your standard unisex adult T-shirt and then it looked like there was also maybe a women's V neck and a hoodie. And something else, I think. Yeah, there's a fourth option. Yeah, I think there's a children's T-shirt. If you just want to, I don't know, get your kids beat up at school. You want to identify them early as, you know, people who will have an adequate number of friends. Yeah. It's a good way. I've seen some people say I've sort of identifying fellow members of the fan graphs effectively wild tribe if you want to wear these out and about or perhaps to a baseball game. Maybe people will say, hey, you're one of those. I'm one of those two, and you'll strike up a conversation. So that's nice. And you can introduce people to the podcast and if we do well with these, if people buy them, then we will make more. I'm sure we have other design ideas that we want to do. We have the tenth anniversary of the podcast coming up. So we want to offer a broader range of designs and also colors and maybe items as well. Maybe we can get some effectively wild mugs made at some point, but yeah, if you want to see more options, then we should sell out all of these. So please help make that happen. And as I said, there's a 10% discount for Patreon supporters. So if you're not already one and you're planning to buy one or more of these t-shirts, you could probably sign up at one of the lower Patreon tiers and it will pay for itself with the 10% discount on this merch. So that's out there. Check the show page for the link. I assume that these things will go fast and I don't know how long they'll last. So go get yours. If you want them for yourself or as a gift for that podcast person in your life. Yeah, go do that. All right, so in baseball and podcast developments. So like minutes, seconds maybe after I posted the last episode. Never a great feeling. I post these things often late at night when there's usually not breaking news at that time. But just after I posted episode 1856, which included a lengthy explanation discussion of the ongoing Jack Peterson, Tommy Pham, fantasy football dispute slap story. And just after that episode went up, our friend and friend of the show see Trent rosecrans of the athletic posted some Pulitzer worthy reporting about this saga and just effectively wowed fashion brought Mike Trout into the whole thing just when we thought the story had settled down and there would not be further developments. It turned out that this was actually still a developing story and it was developing in directions that I could not possibly have anticipated. So some of you may have heard because I had just posted that I reposted it, reupload it with a quick little intro noting that we had recorded prior to that news. Some of you, if you downloaded it immediately, may not have heard that. But here we are reconvening a couple days later to discuss this latest development and I'm almost apprehensive about what will happen next, but we'll come out after we finish this discussion. Who knows? Maybe this actually drove a stake into the story. But Mike Trout, it turns out, was the commissioner of this fantasy football league. Who knew who could have guessed we had heard that it was all Padres or largely Padres or former Padres and Jack Peterson and reported that Manny Machado is in this thing Eric Hosmer is in this thing will Myers in this thing, but clearly not just Padres because Mike Trout not only in it but the commissioner of it and Tommy Pham took him to task issued a verbal slap of sorts to make drought and his handling of this whole dispute about stashing players on your injury reserve. Try to do terrible job, man. Fam said Tuesday, trout's the worst commissioner in fantasy sports because he allowed a lot of shit to go on and he could have solved it all. Yes. He did say that femme said this with the hint of a smile. Yeah. So maybe that's important to know. But yeah, he had harsh words there. He did say nobody wanted to be commissioner. Yes. I didn't want to be the fucking commissioner. I've got other shit to do. He didn't want to do it. We put it on him. It was kind of our fault too, because we made him commissioner. Nonetheless, taking trout to task one of the maybe universally most respected and popular baseball players, controversy free. Yes. And he gets roped into this whole slap story somehow. I just did not see that coming. And apparently, this is also from sea trends PC contacted trout to apologize for disclosing his role later. So he felt badly about it and I'm going to I'm going to quote now. I'm going to quote now from this piece. Try out what have preferred not to talk about the kerfuffle, but the angels had previously organized a press conference for Wednesday afternoon. This weekend, the team visits Philadelphia, which is near drudge childhood home of Melville, New Jersey, several reporters have traveled north to ask trout about the homecoming. Trout pronounced himself excited to play again at Citizens Bank park and elated about the off season moves of his beloved eagles. He was less thrilled when asked about fam's comments. I ain't talking about fantasy football trout outside. Then in a sheepish but genial fashion, he proceeded to talk about fantasy football. Trout indicated he had spoken with both fam and Peterson. He chalked up the slap to the heightened emotions brought forth by the thrill of competition. Everybody's competitive, he said, everybody loves fantasy football. Who doesn't? He added Tommy, everybody who was involved in that is very passionate about fantasy football. A lot of people put their hearts into it. I do too. I lost that leak. Trout was less forthcoming about the particulars of the argument waged by famine Peterson, the initial charge from fam was that Peterson had illegally stashed him one on the injured reserved and picked up an additional player. Peterson countered that fam was doing the exact same thing with San Francisco forty-niners, Jeff Wilson, junior, fam indicated Tuesday. There was a difference between what was allowed on id's pan's fantasy football app and the leak's own codified rule. The commissioner, declined to adjudicate, did Peterson as fans suggested break the rules, I'm not answering them questions. Was Trump surprised the story was entering at 6 day in the news cycle? I think you guys are dragging it on. Yeah, I don't know if it's just us. It's also time you fam. Oh yeah. He restarted this whole story, but yeah, trap said it didn't the past. You guys just keep dragging it on, but it is a legendary fantasy league for sure. Oh, yeah. He did have one good line. Which was when people asked him if he was going to be the commissioner again in this league. And what did he say? This is from Andy McCullough. Trump declined to comment on whether Jack Peterson violated the rules of the league. He said he's unsure if he'll resign his commissioner for this coming season. Every commissioner I know gets booed, he says. Right. Yeah. So trapped in that fan the flames here..

"That have been in the ground for a few years or more should be okay because the event only lasted three days and most of us had enough leave coverage to shade. The developing clusters. There shouldn't be much if any damage as long as we don't see anything like that again for new plantings it's more of a concern as a vast majority of oregon vineyards including ours have no permanent irrigation and younger root systems haven't found their own groundwater sources yet. Fortunately we saw this coming the week before. And i was able to run about four thousand feet of temporary drip irrigation. Line down to the new vines planted last fall between unrolling the constantly kicking and twisting hose in thousand foot segments clipping the host to the wires thousands of times over and installing the drip emitters one by one through the hose wall. It's a truly underrated miserable experience but it was worth the effort as the worst of the heat has passed and the youngsters look to be in good shape. Our larger concern is how the heat exacerbated the awful drought we've had the memories of last september's unprecedented wildfires in the valley the nearest of which came about two miles from our place. It's still fresh in our minds with the dry spring. We just had an our normal dry summer ahead. We're all on guard and praying to avoid a repeat this year.

We're supposed to have tim leg laurent at this particular point in the show and it hasn't worked out he's been on. Espn all morning and it doesn't really matter We can talk about the game amongst ourselves because it's game one of a seven game series. It is the least important game in a seven game. Series is game one. The games get progressively more important most of the time. Every once in a while. You sneak one in like if it's three. Oh you know. Maybe the fourth game isn't that important in the greater scheme of things but game. One is the least important the honest onto combo who had been doubtful in the morning and then was upgraded to questionable played and played. Well he had. I believe twenty points and seventeen rebounds. He showed no particular ill effects of his injury and in fact he made a great block on one play ran the length of the court and just pin. The ball against the back board and still phoenix. One and reason phoenix. One is chris. Paul was great. This makes wilpon so happy chris. Paul had a bunch of points. He in devon booker had a bunch of points together because their strength the strength of phoenix is in the back court and the strength of milwaukee is in the frontcourt because middleton is a forward and onto kupo is a center center. I guess a forward on that team because lopez place center. I said this the other day. And i will say this again. I am not going to be surprised at all if the team. That wins game. One which is now. Phoenix sweeps the series. And the reason. I'm not going to be surprised if there's only one player on the court only one who's had any finals experience at all only one jae crowder. Who plays for phoenix. He played last year from miami. He plays on a new team every year. And so you think he must be difficult player to coach and yet he gets on a new team and he starts and he's really good and then he leaves and i you know. I don't know why somebody smarter than i will have to explain that to me on a different team every year and a critical player every single year because of the lack of experience in the finals. It's conceivable that that you don't have a fallback position to draw on to stop the other team. Now maybe they'll go seven and maybe phoenix a win tonight. And then milwaukee we go to milwaukee and win two in a row and then it's best two out of three series. I mean i can't tell you about that. But what i wonder about is what the ratings are going to be. We have become so accustomed to seeing the following people in finals number. One lebron james number two steph curry and then kawhi leonard and then kevin durant. I mean there are people who you associate with the finals in the nba. And none of them are in this. These are the last time phoenix was in. The finals was nineteen ninety three. The last time the walkie was in the finals was nineteen. Seventy four nine thousand nine hundred seventy four. So you've got cities that haven't been there in a long time. They're tremendously excited. But are casual. fans tremendously excited. That's what i don't know if you watch that game last night. I'll tell you what helped phoenix's uniforms are cool. And you would look at phoenix's uniforms and say i'm gonna stick around on this one. It was not a blowout but it was not a particularly close game. I'm not gonna lie to you and tell you that i stayed up. I did watch the first quarter and a half because like michael enough with the golf. It's fun but enough with that. And i don't really know who's going to win. I think phoenix is legitimately favored. It's gonna take about three games to figure out who's better at always does. But i think phoenix's legitimately favored because they won fifty one games during the regular season. And milwaukee won forty six. They finished second in a harder conference. And milwaukee finished third in an easier conference and they're more healthy than the walkie onto colombo played last night. You don't know if he will continue to play at that particular level they're more healthy and they also have home court so. I think that they should be the favorites. I think they're the best team. So hard for me because phoenix over the last five six eight years. They've not even been in the playoffs. They're losing record last year in losing record and now all of a sudden and the addition paul. It's no getting around this mean. I never liked. Chris paul mostly because wilpon likes him so much.

This wasn't you know when the yankees and the red sox bid against each other and my right on this that he's not making much money relative to other players. Yes that's true. And i admire him so much because he just wanted to come here and play. He could have gotten a lot more money if he had waited and and gotten the right deal in japan and then had a bidding war. But he said. I don't wanna do that. I wanna come over here and play. you know. he's got his home life apparently mapped out and he did. When was in high school. You know. I'm gonna win a ring at this time. I'm at this age. I'm gonna win the world series at this age. I'm going to get married at this age. I'm never baby at this age. He's got his whole life plan. And i'm not sure where he is on the plan. I just know that at age. Twenty seven now. He's most exciting player in the game because of what he can do and he's not making the money that others are making but he will eventually. Yeah yeah. I don't know about having your whole life planned out like that because when when one of the domino's goes all go i mean i would wanna be around if it didn't work. Let me shift gears the one other thing. This is local from me. How can max scherzer not be one of the top. Twelve pitchers in the national league when he is fourth in the national league in earned run and fifth in the national league in strikeouts. And he's playing for a team that is under five hundred. How can he not be on the all star team well. That was my first comment. When we did the all star show the other day we always talk more about not on the all star team rather than who's on the all star team but that was my first comment how to make sure to not be on the all star team now. There's no excuse. Tony but there. The day i looked it up. There were sixteen pitchers in the national league with an era under three sixteen. That's a lot just shows you. How dominant the pitching is and ten of those sixteen including max or did not make the all star team so he's not the only one where the gripe but he's got the biggest gripe because he should be on the all star team with that strikeout rate in the area of two point one zero for a subpar team he i. I couldn't believe that he wasn't on the all star team. Well thank you for talking about the amount of pitchers who are doing well. Is the goop gone to your satisfaction and as a result will we not see hitting the way we used to hitting well. I don't think the group is all the way gone. I mean for a million years. Athletes are trying to find an edge in pitchers will continue to do that. But you you really have to be stupid to carry something really sticky on your glove or your belt your hat. Because they're going to catch now and it's good that are checking. I debated whether it was okay to do it in season but you know the pictures clearly were some of them were cheating and they were getting an unfair advantage so it's time to crackdown and seems to crack down. It's working though. Spin rates have gone down the the offensive numbers have gone up it. The pitcher is still have their way. Tony i it it helps the hitters for sure but the pictures are still so much better than the hitters. Are these days that they still strike out. A million per game and the average is not gonna go from to thirty six two to sixty six. But it's giving. The hitter is much more of a chance the other day we had two hundred eight runs scored. On june the thirtieth. And it's the most runs scored days two thousand nine and it's getting hotter when it gets hotter hitters swing better. It's easier to hit when the weather is hot and the ball travels for farther but the same time. I think it's time to even the playing field a little bit because right now the pitchers are way too good for the hitters. I would even it up of all of these suggestions that i have heard and i don't know we've probably talked about this before and i've forgotten it. The one suggestion i liked the most is to make sure every infielder has his feet in the dirt. I would not allow these shifts. I would not allow short fielders in right field or left field. It's mostly in right field. Obviously i would make sure all the infielders have their feet in the dirt dirty like that or not like that. Yeah i do. I've come around to that. Tony and by the way yesterday joey gallo of the rangers. They played a shift on him. They used four outfielders. They took their to middle infielders and made them short fielders in right field so there was only one player with his feet in the dirt and that was the first basement. It's the strangest thing. I think i've ever seen. As far shifting goes only one player had his feet in the dirt that was the first baseman and he was almost on the outfield grass. And mark tisch era has convinced me that this would help the offensive problem in the game. Because when you shift like that aren't hitters are incapable of hitting the ball to the opposite field. Joey gallo cannot hit a line drive to left center field. He just really can't do that so his only choices to hit it over the shift down. Can't him through the ship because they're six guys there though. His choices already got gotta hit it over the ship. Therefore it's hard as i can. I gotta get ball up in the air which leads to a million strikeout which leads to a lot of inaction leads to a lot of homers. But it's not welcome looking for. So i would like to see everyone with their feet on the dirt and see how the game is played after that. I don't have any of these suggestions for other sports. You know what i mean. I only have it for baseball. Because i've known baseball my whole life. And when you see these shifts and you see batters hit the ball one hundred miles an hour. And it's a one hop all the time to a guy who's positioned in exactly the right spot who has just taken a card out of his back pocket to find out how to play this particular hitter. It drives me crazy. Tim it does you know. God bless the managers for being smart enough to do it. But i would outlawed i would yeah and our hitters are at this point. Tony are incapable of making the adjustment. They've been swinging this way for fifteen years. Maybe twenty this the only swing they have. They can't hit it over there. They don't know how they were never trained. The industry never train them to do anything other than to pull the ball over there or to get the ball up in the air and then until we make a massive adjustment for our hitters. Were going to continue to see this stuff. But that adjustments going to take years and years. You can't just tell somebody who's been hitting a certain way for fifteen years. Okay we want you to hit differently. Now we want you to hit a line drive to left field and we want you to do it off of jacob degrom. Were max scherzer. Good luck. they can't hit them anyway. And now you're asking them to change their approach like asking him basketball player to shoot a different way. No we don't want you to shoot that way we want you to shoot this way. And they can't make that adjustment not after this many years. We'll always says. Just have them. Bunt and i said mike these these guys they're number three hitters and four hitters.

"Is the tony kornheiser. Show this zita. We played zelda yesterday. And we're playing zita today. That's right not z. T. which is something you eat and not z. toll. Tom zito my friend. This z. tozzi it. This is called the picture this old fashioned rocker role. It's hard to resist. this really is and it pulled. They play in tim curtain. And we're going to start in fact we're going to be dominated by shohei ohtani. Shohei ohtani pitched last night pitch well enough to win. He's a better pitcher at home in california then he is on the road but the question is the all star game question. Is the question his manager. Tim joel madden has suggested to kevin cash that kevin cash pitch him and hit him. What do you think the american league should do. What shohei otani well. That's exactly what they should do with shohei ohtani. You should start the game as the designated hitter and show everyone what a great hitter is. 'cause he is and then they should pitch him in the game later on i would bring him in in relief so everyone can see how hard he throws so he might hit a ball at a hundred miles an hour he might have hit. Hit a ball thrown at one hundred miles an hour. Then he'll throw a ball at one hundred miles an hour and there's nobody else that can do that so the fact that he's the first two way player to play in an all star game i think we we need to see both sides of it in the all star game okay. So here's you can explain your position to me. My position would be that you start him on the mound that he becomes the first pitcher in the game for one reason that people really want to see him and for a second reason that nobody in the american league that they don't have roger clemens this year pedro martinez their best era. They don't have jacob degrom their best. Era is the kid from texas which is one nine eight and the other part of this would be so you can answer this because you would put him in relief if he's already in the game as the d. h. Is does it become hard to warm up. does it become cumbersome. Where does he go to warm up if he's an active player. That's why i would start him from the top. But you know much more than i how would you do it well. That's interesting tony. 'cause i never even thought it through. I just figured he can do this. But 'cause he can do anything but you're right. He should start the game. You've already convinced me. He should start the game he should start the game against jacob. Degrom that way. The two most exciting pitchers ash slash players in the game should start against each other. They should both pitch to each other and against each other because degrom is hitting three eighty seven this year and that would be. That would be perfect. You're right. I'm sorry i didn't even. It's too early in the morning for me to think clearly but both should start the game and both should save face each other. In fact if kevin cash doesn't start him and i'm rob manfred. I give him the hook like he gave blake. Snell lahore is he. Goes you know this is an exhibition game. You wanna you wanna get an audience right away. do you think otani. and i. i don't do you. Think otani is deserving as a pitcher to make the all star team or do you think that's influenced by the two way nature of his play. I think he deserves to make the team as a pitcher also knows. Era ages went up by over a run after one. Terrible start young otherwise been pretty good. He struck out like eighty seven batters this year. His splitter is like the hardest pitch to hit in the major leagues at least it was by early june. And you're right. Tony it's an exhibition game. Baseball is having trouble getting people interested. How can you not take the most interesting player in the game. The most remarkable player in the game. And nacho off all of his tools and by the way the tool that is most impressive to me is how fast he can run his feet per second. We actually measure. This now was at one point this year. Faster than fernando tateishi junior. He scored obama did from second base on a one hop a line. Drive single to right field against the orioles scored the winning run. I'm telling you joni five guys in the league could have scored on that play high. And he's one of them. That's how fast he is. He might be. The only guy gets down to first base faster on the angels. This year is mike trout. That's how fast time is he not just fast too. Great base runner. He's a remarkable athlete. In the all star game would need to see him pitch. We need to see hit and mostly we need to see him. Run in the interest of full disclosure. We had a power outage again. As tim was talking about. Shohei ohtani speed. I assume this is comcast. I hate comcast beyond anything you can imagine. I hope everybody who uses comcast hates comcast as well and stops using comcast. If in fact they had anything to do with this. I attempted to call someone at comcast and they were not in which is understandable because it was before eight o'clock in the morning but why didn't this happen on monday because monday was a legal holiday and comcast wasn't working and today is not a legal holiday in comcast is working and they do not identify the area where they are going to do the work and tell the people in that area. You might have interrupted service. That never happens to me. If i'm wrong. I apologize but this happens with a tremendous amount of frequency right sean. A tremendous amount of frequency lately. Yes much more often than than in past months and comcast provides the power and comcast is the people i write the checks two and comcast should at the very least tell people. We're working in your area from this time to that time and there may be an interruption. Now that i've disclosed all that let's go back to tim. Kurkin and shohei ohtani speed. You were saying that there's only five people in the major leagues who could have made that play. Yeah he scored on a one hop line drive single to the right fielder to win the game and he's not just really fast. He's a great base runner and the bayfront in the basically today is so indescribably bad. That's another reason. He stands out because he could really run the base. They always tell us manager. Joe mad. I i wanna feel here. Let me feel basis. He's a pitcher and he's asking to steal basis that's what he's that's the separator. He is such a fabulous athlete. He is so grateful to watch. And again tony at the plate. I don't wanna get too inside baseball. The ball on the inside part of the plate. Everyone pulls that ball. He can take that ball the inside part of the plate and hit over the left field fence. It's remarkable what he can do in any baseball activity. There are three baseball players right now. That seemed to have this electric quality. More than anybody. Else vlad guerrero junior fernando totti's junior and shohei ohtani. The other two guys are making money. If i recall correctly tim shohei..

"And there's been so much talk of the last couple years about these super league's and many players have come out against it. Rory royals and you look at you know you look at what sort of business enterprise off. The course rory himself has gone into new-look phillies like he is found this perfect path to try and get some of that money to try and get some of that. Outside of the tour interest in revenue. This is something that's including in realized. Quarterbacks are the are the people who can draw and you look at this and he's created this little these match scenarios soon. He can do this. It's going to be the shells. Wonderful year's golf part to he's going to be going to different countries. Finding the sweet spots you would have thought tuesday before the british opens the perfect time slot until the italy. Spain game goes into penalty. What i did there at the very nice. They bumped us we we were on. Espn two which will be on again today because denmark and england. That's right. I also love. The asa loved watching the floating camera guys and the people that go into the match into any event. It's live tv that you're fixing earpieces. They're driving off the cart past the golf course which i had never heard of to listing was announced somewhere in montana or idaho. Montana montana it is. It's astonishing michael. I texted michael. I said this place is so majestic and he said and correctly so that it reminded him of the sound of music. It's like the von trapp family is singing in the woods. Rolling hates so beautiful hills. Were alive with the sounds of filmmakers. Yeah and and the other thing that was great at one point. Brady and rogers throwing the football back and forth and you can see how it's being zipped they're not even trying. It's being zipped. It looks like it's going eighty miles an hour and they're catching it easily. Because that's what they do for a living. They play football. Rogers a better golfer than brady row. I've played with rogers. Rogers is really good. And and it just like michael. I stopped watching after a while. You know enough about but it was love. The hardest thing about this is you can watch. You can't watch a four ball. Play a four hour route. It's even if they're in fast cards. Everyone everyone was ribbon on shambo for slow play and all this. But it's just it's hard to to watch that when there's nothing really at stake and i'll explain this to you because i thought about this and talked with a friend of mine last night about this very thing. The invention of golf on television is wholly attributable to a man infrastructure kenyan fracture. Kenyan looked at a golf tournament and said more shots. We gotta do more shots. We gotta make sure every single time. Our cameras are on somebody hitting the ball ball goes up in the air ball lands. Bullets putted ball. Stops in the whole world goes by but we can't concentrate just on one person we have to give you a lot of shots and the problem with putting a golf match on television. Even with four people is there. Aren't that many shots and they're babbling and they're driving to the shots and so you've got to make this work with personality. This is why phil is dominant brady left to himself. Wouldn't talk rogers mytalk but with all that's going on with rodgers now. Rogers probably reluctant to talk. He got a little more open one once. They established the lead. And he knows quarterbacks running off the field know how to work with the one camera. that's in front of them. He was coaching shamba. One point be like no no look here. Shambo is a weird guy you know. He's just a weird guy. That's not the ideal pairing to you would say tigers. The ideal not anymore obviously but would take tiger was the ideal pairing tigers. Not yacky you know you got to be talkative and fill is incredibly talking. That's why peyton manning works in something like this. Yes 'cause peyton. Manning is very talkative as well and under stairs grandma ending speed and roma which would be very good pairing in terms of the successful iteration and they know each other very well and they play together at the same place in dallas. So that actually would be very good but then are you if romo's in it and he. Cbs do you have to be on cbs cbs. And this is where you're watching an event where you go. Is it a sporting event. Or is it just some sort of sponsored branding event. You don't know where the commercial announcing the people doing the actual announcing announcing couldn't talk about charity and match more and they were they were not really involved in the golf they involved in the hoopla and even looking at how calloway came in to do some of the outside. They're going to commercials stills. Calloway but then you have a rogers who was decked out in some in some taylor mayor tournament. That was him ripping off camera. Rigging phil hair using that. That new tailor-made minnie driver that many spotted out at the us open. Yeah so they they can do that. And rogers golf sort of nerd. Brady is not brady. Is out there to advertise. Tb twelve yes and shambo. God only knows draft gang so yeah let me try. Drive the seven hundred seventy seven yard par five get you. Can i get a mulligan around the clock guys. We're trying to fight darkness and by the way that they went for like five hours it went went way into the basketball game. And then you know my question was you know turner in espn our partners in the nba. Determine really wanna count a program like that into the nba game anyway all of these questions to be answered by someone other than i. We'll take a break when we return. Tim cook will join us. We'll talk about baseball and shohei otani. I'm tony kornheiser. You're listening to the tony kornheiser show. This is the indochino ed. I've got nigel to my right. He bought three of these suits. Do the ad actually people how to work. Yes i love my three suits from indochino. I will most likely purchase a fourth suit very soon. That's how much i love the suits tailor-made to your dimensions. I did it with a rope. And yardstick you can go to an actual taylor get your measurements. You send them in. You.

"A couple of things in golf because we're going to get to the basketball game. Would tim legler later. When we're going to get to the all star game in the circumstance surrounding shohei ohtani with tim kirk later so i wanted to start with the golf. Not with the phil. Mickelson golf yet. That'll be the majority of this but not with that yet. I want to start by inviting people. Anybody who's listening and anybody who's going to be in washington next week in fact. I think it's starting this weekend. The twelfth writes a twelfth. This monday i started sunday by. I think it's the i think it starts monday. So columbia country club is going to host a major. us g. a. event. It is the national girls championship. It's the girls m Seventeen and under. I believe seventeen and under eighteen years ago They hosted the boys. Seventeen and under that michael tried to qualify for and played in in an early round and this will continue. Don't in by number four. i believe double-bogey in the first round. Do you remember that. Yeah so This will long never go along for. This will continue for a week. It will be on television. The semi finals on friday and the finals on saturday. They'll be on the golf channel. I wondered if sands was going to be involved but sands will be at the british open. So he will not be involved. I don't know who's doing the telecast who specifically is doing it cheyenne woods is one of the people doing it. We last night. She was at the match last night. she's one. She's tigers cousin. I believe cheyenne woods and a professional golfer herself. If i have this correct so it's the junior girls. It starts out where everybody plays eighteen holes and then they cut to sixty four. Is that how that works. And then the matchplay begins. It's free you can come out to columbia if you don't know where columbia is. It is at the intersection of connecticut avenue and east west highway in chevy chase maryland. You can walk are beautiful course. You can look with revulsion at the purple line as gouges through our beautiful course And you can watch these girls play. They're gonna play. I believe they're gonna play from the white tees mostly from the white tees the other day in a qualifying round the best three scores. I was told with seventy two seventy three seventy four from the whites. I never approach that. And i said oh i guess my son can still beat them but it would be a match. Would it be a good match. That'd be asking for shots yet. I try and take advantage of the lane that i still have. Yeah but what's your first question. I think he could beat these fourteen year old girls. Do you remember when you were a fifteen or sixteen year old boy and you played against or we were going to play against jessica lewis who is a little bit older and ended up. You know as a professional golfer. She was a great golfer. I think at one point. She won the maryland open. Jessica lewis and mallory. Crossland are the ones who come to mind right away and you wouldn't tell me you were not nervous about playing with somebody. Who was that good nervous. More more about her being that good and and yet she hit the ball. Hardwood so great when you're competing like that doesn't matter what tease you're playing from as long as it's the appropriate and that's what's so great about golf and what you saw implement and charles talking about last night is you can get into golf and play from the appropriate tease. I delay with a female collegiate golfers. You're a high school boy looking up trying to get to that level yourself. Yeah and so so. That's that will be out there. The young lady who led the us open for two rounds is going to play in this. I've i'm blanking on her name. But she's about to become a freshman at stanford and she had all those wonderful interviews after the first two rounds and seemed so tremendously composed. So that's going to be out there. I'm told that. I don't know if this is true. Maybe you would know. Michael family is not allowed to caddy interesting. Yeah i was told that. But i'm not certain about that. Wouldn't be sure about that. That's tweeden's going to caddy. Of course he is going to go out and caddy for this thing. Oh yeah he definitely has the psychological advantage when he when he's given the young competitors lines on the ground at all. He's played at ten thousand times. We now i believe we act forest out of the money and akbar eight is going to be open for the tournament. Oh so joy insurgency george. He'll be out there and you should say hello to them. And you should say they're getting towards undisclosed location. Yeah that's right you can do that. We know where that is. So we were the other day. Arch and courtney and pete and i. We were sixty one. We were nine under and we didn't even get shop credit. We didn't get shop credit on nine under. We missed michael. Because michael was there we came in second and one hundred twenty five dollars in shop difference. So it's at columbia country club. It'd be all next week. The admission is free. I don't know about the parking. I mean. I don't know if they're staged parking and satellite areas. I don't know that but by all means come out and watch these girls play because they're going to be playing in college and some of them are going to be pros after that because there is the national junior girls. Championships is big deal right. Michael all use jason sarnia the chance to watch history in the making. This is a big deal. Now let's get to the match. Last night phil mickelson now and i am advised that he won the pga. And i'm so happy he won the pga but phil mickelson basically for the last three or four years is in the phil mickelson business and much of the phil mickelson business is to play in these trumped up entertaining matches that he sells television and he says i'm going to get three people to play with me once. It was tiger. Wants his peyton manning a couple of times now. Tom brady last night. Aaron rodgers and he sold it to turner and they put charles barkley. And larry fitzgerald out there. I larry should play last could play. He should play and they and phil mickelson his in this business as he gets ready for his next business which is to be the sole and only golf commentator on television phil walks around an independent contractor just floated you or anyone. You want me on a sunday. Here's here i'm settled. Do three to five if you want me for the last nine. That's a higher price point but we can make it work. Yeah jared yeah. And plus and talk to jared and everybody needs to wear my long-sleeved shirt semi sunglasses and everything only be drinking. Coffee fills coffee filters remarkable if you watch it and he says things like so. I need about a fifty seven yard shot. I want to put a little bit past the pin. I want to suck it back a little bit. So i have the uphill on i. Practices about forty thousand times and he goes back and forth with the shambo. Who is the only person on the tour who understands him to shambo. Does the same sort of thing. It's all mathematical to shambo physics and mathematics and it's fascinating and then barkley. I think spoke for all of us when he said. Do you really wanna go out to dinner with these guys. W telephone going right with these really really. These barkley had the best line of the entire night when he said of tom brady. Tom brady is a pretty good barney. Said it to him. He said tom. You're pretty mad. And then and then brady who loves barclay because everybody loves barclay brady then talked about his competitiveness and how he felt you know that he he got to everything sort of late and wanted to outward. Everyone you're improv. I loved that in terms of the first half of the round which was the only watchable have because at a certain point. Even i turned it off cockpit alternate-shot trying to pull three what i can't do this hour to. They figured out the camera angles and it felt like this. I'm sure well it felt like a confessional almost with braiding for somebody who is so calculated in terms of what he messages in a post game presser. It was just really rewarding. If i imagine if i was a kid seeing tom brady with the amount of success. He's talking about having dow work. Everybody you've heard that message a thousand times but you have not seen it done in such an intimate setting and part of that is the pads are off the helmets off But you come back to you..
