Lawyer. On. Said I saw gone. Till's got a black belt in keeping it real. Thank you for that and welcome back to the show rick to the with you coast to coast and around the world on American forces. Radio Network Sir Pleasure to welcome a couple of gentlemen to the show Shadley and Taylor. Scott. They are the creative minds over at Ikin I K I N and they have a new IOS game which is free to play called presidents run Chad. Let's start with you. What was the genesis behind this project? Thanks thanks for having me on the show. He Genesis was actually during the twenty twelve campaign between Romney and Obama we just thought there'd be a cool way to help people kind of get involved with. The characters. So we created an endless running. Back then and it was pretty successful hit the number one spots a like a month after it was released and what we do differently with this game, we collected the mileage that you're running in the game and we post it on a website as a poll. So every mile players from kind of what separates us from anything else is and keep track of all those taking on the site and see who's winning and it was it went really well back. Then we effectively predicted that Win and so we thought, Hey, you know people had a lot of fun there. Let's do the same thing this year and So we've bamboo game, they put him in the new characters and. We, put it up there just relief last week and it looks like people are having a lot of fun with it. Taylor. This is a little bit different from games like super burning world, which was basically the people over at Bernie Sanders, they trying to get you to vote, and of course, people are more creative with millennials and trying to get them. into their hearts and minds any which way they can There are also some apps that just want you to vote in general. Especially Democrats want to rock the vote so to speak, but this is nonpartisan correct. Indeed. Yeah. One thing that we're really excited about is it's giving voice to every single person in in one day, you can both play as as Donald trump running to get votes in a Rainbow Afro Wig and you can play his Joe Biden in Wisconsin Cheese. Hat. So. Both it's non-partisan. Really it's an evolution. It's the first time. Ever. That people be able to actually enjoy polling you think about pulling everything from. People feeling as though they're not properly heard or things are biased We don't really have any of those issues here. It's you're able to play in a fun way and enjoy being able to support whatever individually you think of. And if you think I'm so sick by. You can play. I. Love this Zombie Washington or my favorite Frankenstein Lincoln hotch. Yeah Yeah we have the all stars although they didn't age well and we released do characters as well, and and in this version, me are also celebrating world leaders as well. So we have just arden. The End Putin and can join them. Yeah just into arden. Only forty years old doing a great Job Zealand right now but you mentioned people like, Putin. You'll get a visceral reaction of just rage from some people. You'll mention cholera and like I love her I hate her and so. Do Do you sometimes people think you're stepping on toes when you're just trying to make a game here I don't think. So the way we approach gain is we want to have fun with these characters not make fun of them. There's so much stuff happening in the world today is the negative campaigning all the negative stuff that's happening. We just thought you know the celebrate your character there's nothing derogatory game at all. You can just have fun list whoever you want to. Speaking, with Chad Leeann Taylor Scott about the game presidents, Ron Taylor how is that you at I can came together with react games. or I can just very passionate about changing as I mentioned before. It's I can real Gore. Here's the next year we're going to be launching the world's first mobile holographic platform. So. This huge library of content that we're building now presidents the first of a rather wide net but different applications that we're gonNA bring already APP store fractionally massively translated next year you'll be able to play these games state but also be able to go into a open projected Hologram state with your mobile phone. So it's about being bring that one reason why? Again as you mentioned, we're so passionate credits renting purchase because it really is the first of its kind being able to take a very serious subject on everyone's minds right now especially leading up to November being able to humanize it and enjoy the experience of being involved in political system rather than being so polarized. And Chad what is it like when you've got people who will say? You know this is a throwaway game support. It's a platformer. It's just for the election and then we'll all forget about it and he'd say, no, no no maybe it's dramatic. But this is actually a fun game. It's a unique game and it's not just a port. Right, are are planning designing initially was for prisoners from the political candidates, but we've designed what were with a free to play game like this. We're always GONNA be releasing new content and that's why released really fun characters like Zombie the ex. We have some really interesting take on some of the past presidents which include you know all of them, but we're also bringing world leaders as well, and hopefully we can get to you know president the company. So it's not just world leaders, but I imagine those and some of these other ones. You know running and people running for different issues. And Taylor you mentioned the Holograms and I know you guys got your seed funding in. You got your five Mil. Congratulations for for me I think for most of US first. Hologram. was. Helped me over our only hope or you're GONNA do how you GonNa do this and augmented reality to manipulate environments. Great, question again for me that that moment is definitely burned into my brain and. It's a really unique combination of Elaine architecture system that we're going to be hearing more about very very soon. And a unique type of artificial intelligence and we actually impregnate that into the phone allowed to do a lot of work for the user. So you'll actually for the first time able to have that you know be one you're my only hope but real time with two different individuals. So you can actually have that as your real time communication system, and again instead of you know having to use goggles I wear, it's actually open space with your mobile device. So the very convenient way of taking a somewhat distant technology we've been talking about Princess Leia for how many years and actually humanizing it and getting it to you right now. And Chad I'm sure there are some android people thinking I guess we're left out but you're you guys are working on getting it over to the Google. People, Right We're actually putting the final touches on that, and the android version will be released in matter days. Taylor have you had any of the candidates approach you and say, Hey, this is going to be popular and it's already been popular in the past. Almost, like animal crossing where we can get some political signs in the dirt here have you had any of the parties or candidates approach you about maybe trying to slip into your back pocket they're. No we have, and again, this is new application. So it's already had some really great responses. We haven't had any of those conversations yet, and again the hallmark of this application we're not we were not biased toward anyone side. So when it comes to that a major push for us on the run side to keep it neutral in both of those positions. So everyone has an equal. Ability to engage with the system. When you think about it, you can play as any of these characters trump find what the same ending occurs at the end of it. If you if you hit too many times, you explode into a batch of banana cream pie and bowling teams. So you know we're very passionate about keeping it to where everybody gets play the exact same way. And Question Chad I've always maintained that. Will play a game. If it's fun. You know I don't care about frame rate and frames per second and the actors and the Pixel Ation or how much hyper if have a commercial during the super bowl I mean we played tetris because it was fun. It was nothing graphically groundbreaking there. So what about the fun factor in this game? Fun. Factor definitely there And that's why we spend a lot of time in the very beginning making sure it was really fun and simple. So really it's your Turkish running from left to right you tap on the screen and they can jump and that's it. You're collecting votes at you're going through you're collecting base the help you get more mileage, and the funny thing is my my mother-in-law I introduced her to it kind of a test case. She sat down on the weekend and she supports a certain candidate I won't tell you to but I heard this president's run music. I'm already hired because I've played it so much all weekend long she just kept playing over and over she's you know mid seventies and she just kept on going and she loves the fact that she's contributing and it's it isn't a game as you get further along it. So gamers out there it gets really hard. It gets really frantic. So it kind of grabs both markets dead make gamers gamers. Very. Cool. I. One last question for you Taylor Kim Jong. UN is in this game and we know just from motion pictures and things that the North Koreans can become highly offended. Have you had any threats? Have you? Know we've had no threats. I'm fortunately, and it's big reason why we take that approach I mean Sarin Kim Jong up up against Frankenstein Lincoln. I think it definitely kind of normalizes the situation. It's not so tense too big reason we went to a lot of time and developed making sure that nobody would would take major offense to it occurs within the application. they are Chadli in Taylor Scott from aiken and through react games, they have put up presidents, Ron It's available in irs right now coming soon to the to the android phones and applications as well. Chad Taylor congratulations on the game. Thanks for stopping by, and let's catch up down the road. Thank you. All right I'm Rick Tuttle take a quick break and we'll come on back on. Sports.

The Pants Store Rick tittle is a majestic stallion. Thank you for that. Welcome back to the show continuing on with Rick's pics. By the way, we have open lines the rest of the way if you'd like to get in and have yourself heard before we went into the weekend. The colts in the vikings are both looking at themselves in the mirror saying how the hell did we start off one one? Playoff teams here what's going on man he? What's going on well Colts drafted Jonathan Taylor to complement their ground game but now he's the starter and the finisher. Because he will be the workhouse guy that's what the head coach. Frank Reich is known as France and Germany Toronto. Five, ten, two, hundred, twenty, six pounds, and. Weekend debut six catches for sixty seven yards. He is A. Great, player at Wisconsin. He became the first player. To go for six thousand yards and three seasons, which is pretty amazing. But MARLIN MAC. Is. Hurt. So he's going to get the load and then you think about. What are they known for? You say well, Kirk cousins but it's that Mike Zimmer defense right. Well they allowed. Forty three points and five hundred, twenty, two yards last week, which is the most of the Mike. Era and they have not started own to since two thousand thirteen. And Philip rivers how is he going to do? with the colts he threw two interceptions t y Hilton dropped the last two passes at the game. He said it has not at all week. But you know after the very strange home opener, the Vikings make their first road trip where they say a crowd. If you WANNA call it, that will be up to two thousand, five, hundred. Two thousand five hundred I guess rich people. and. So. I mean, the the colts have been very inhospitable to Minnesota. which has lost all eleven games that they've played in either Baltimore. Or indie. That is the only franchise that the vikings have never beaten on the road. That's pretty amazing I. don't care how bad you are. Or how dynastic the other side is how do you go when eleven in the history of the franchise? Well Philip Rivers remembers hanging posters of some quarterback greats on his. Bedroom Wall but this week he could be. Joining some and surpassing some others because two more touchdown passes. And three, hundred and sixty six yards. You'll become the six member. Of the four, hundred td and the sixty thousand yard clubs. And Twenty four completions, he will pass Dan Marino for fifth all-time, just under five thousand. and. If he does start, that will make his two, hundred, twenty, six consecutive start, which is eleventh all time. He'll be tying Terrell suggs there and one more win. We'll give them a hundred and twenty four, which will tie him with Fran Tarkenton for number eighth all time. But I mean what are you GonNa do it. Doesn't matter if you lose. Right. Otherwise Avia roads. Seventeen seasons with the Vikings before signing with Indie as a free agent. And he's not bitter. He said quote when I was practicing against those guys and I was there we were competing each and every day. So it's going to be the same right there on the field, but I'm going to be able. To tackle them this. Yes it's true. This is a hard one but I'm going to go ahead and take the colts at home here. I will pick the Vikings to begin to now the forty niners. Another team that is shocked that it lost but as I said, this is one that I got wrong. But I gave a little caveat that Arizona is the bogey team for the forty niners the last few years they are they lost Josh Rosen twice. Yeah. It's pretty amazing. And they're heading three thousand miles to New Jersey. After they messed up their fourth quarter lead in their opener now, I picked the jets to be the very worst team in the NFL this year. So I'm going to pick the forty niners to win this game, but as I said, it's tricky. When you go to the East Coast and the jets did look awful they lost at Buffalo. Last Sunday. But the niners Richard Sherman has a calf. He's out George biddle with a knee as uncertain to play. deebo. Samuel. Then plan the opener brandon. I didn't play in the opener Rappalo got a lot of criticism. But. The jets note the niners dealing with Labor on bell has a hamming. He's out. He's on I R Jamison crowder their leading receiver has a Hammy a lot more strain on. Sam Darnold who I'm not a big fan of talent. Wise. But Manual Moseley Fillon for Sherman and Azeglio weatherspoon on the other side of the niners don't want either of these guys really to start a corner but they have to. But you know you think about Shanahan Han remembering. Studying Frank Ores College film back in the day when he was a quality control Koshen two, thousand four and Gore's still going sixteen years later. The third leading rusher in NFL history, which is no one would would guess that they just they just won't. I think he most it's going to have a big day I don't think that. The niners have needed to do a lot of passing in this and I think San Francisco. Will Win by the way they're favored by a touchdown on the road, which is rare the eagles and the rams that's when it's hard to pick. Rams are wanted to know eagles on one. I will go. This is one of these games so I can't decide I, just go with the home team. and. I think I mean if you look at Gothenburg Lance, they went one and two in the draft. And you almost always on quarterbacks one to it doesn't work out. Well. It has worked out for these guys. Whence was third NFL MVP voting got his team to the super. Bowl couldn't plan it. Golf did lead his team to the Super Bowl. but I like the the Eagle is Shane. Eagle in this one. Couple more morning games the packers host the Lions and normally you just kind of wave your hand and say, Oh, the packers going to win this. Do we really need to break down? Or. Their leading rusher is Adrian Peterson. He's still going but Aaron Rodgers last week was Aaron. Rodgers. Four touchdown passes no interceptions. Matt Stafford wasn't Matt Stafford Because Matt Stafford will usually go three and one. He had one td and one touchdown pass. Not a big Matt Patricia Guy Either. I will go for the pack at home. The bears host the giants. And the bears were behind behind behind and they were able to. pull out a victory in the end in e. In Week one Mitchell trubisky hanging on. Ford field last week, the giants lost at. Pittsburgh on Monday night football by ten. But the you know the bears are coming off an eight and eight year and they went on spent a lot of money on a quarterback who's not playing yet and they don't need them trubisky three touchdowns. No picks. Daniel Jones two picks in. The that game it's at soldier field I don't think either of these teams are going to go to the playoffs, but I'll take Chicago Chicago Chicago. It's wonderful. And you know Daniel CIANCI's these quarterbacks need to get help. I mean you like you move up in the draft you select Ham Dave gettleman you shock everyone and he said he's the guy that's the guy I want to go with. Well all right that's the guy you want to go with. Why don't you get them some weapons get some to block for my notes year or two. But at some point, you can't just throw a guy out there and expect him to succeed if you don't have the weapons especially when you send back to Cleveland. advertiser, we'll take a quick break more picks on the other side.

We'll talk about play. You can't me playoffs I just hope we can win a game. Till eight two, hundred chicken wings at your Mama's house last night now back to fat boy. Thank you for that and welcome back to the show. Nice to have you with US wherever you're listening all around. All around the would. Second some funny stats, Zach Gallon, who's one of the only diamondbacks who's really shown up he's fantastic season. He has made one, hundred, twenty six throws to first now they go on the book as a pickoff attempt. But how many times is it really a pickoff attempt maybe. A quarter of the time. Usually it's like it back over there, Sassy. Phase. It's never like. About the rover I. Got You. Usually just go back. That Gallon has one hundred and twenty six pickoff attempts. Zero pickoffs. Next is Griffin canning with forty five and then Robbie? Ray. With forty one and Corbin Bernas with forty, which means. That the next three combined. Still don't make. What he had. So maybe that's what you need to be a successful pitcher. Let's get to the afternoon games on. Sunday. The cardinals will be hosting. Washington football team. Commonwealth of Independent States. And they both started off one until and they were both very surprising. One knows as the I mentioned the almost call the Aztecs. The Arizona cardinals that'd be sending state. Cardinals. went into San Francisco or Santa Clara won their game and then Washington scored twenty seven. Points to knock off their division rival Philadelphia. They were up seventeen nothing and I got away from. So. The good news is GonNa. It's GONNA keep rolling for one of these teams but it said Marquee match-up of Arizona's potent offense against Washington's defensive line which had A. Big Game Philly PHILLY's defend the offensive line's deplete a bit Ryan Kerrigan had two sacks and J Xiang and his debut number one overall pick had one and a half. Sacks. So Cliff Kingsbury there on a coach said, it was pretty nerve wracking watching their film, the eight sacks causing. Causing fumbles they were really really good. So we just have to have a great week of practice like we've done playing the forty niners. You just have to play for those edge rushers and that's the thing. The niners bring the house too. So. If you think about the offense for. Cuyler Murray. Ran, for ninety one yards and threw for two twenty four. So it was a little bit of a weird balance but around Rivera, the almost called them the redskins Washington's head coach said. He's just such an elusive guy and he just gives me exile eighty. What you WanNa do is you want to keep a guy like that in the pocket you WanNa keep that guy contain. You don't want to give an opportunity to extend plays with his athleticism and his arm he can make plays. Yes. Well, the cardinals were also behind ten to nothing before they got their momentum back so How's IT GONNA go this week. This is down in the Valley of the Sun. I'll take the Arizona cardinals the chargers will be taking on. Each champion Kansas City chiefs AFC west. Hilt. This will be in Los Angeles and the chargers long wait for their shiny new home and when they go into. Sophie so-fi. You're so fine. Oh, Ricky. You're so fi. Stadium. Maki. But it might be some route guests that come in. The chiefs have won eleven of the past twelve against Kansas City, they've taken the past six on the road as well. Kansas City got thirty four points in the blink of an eye over the Texans in their opener who I think are but a team, the chargers. If you go back to last season, just overall county playoffs, they won ten games in a row. And that began with their victory over the chargers in Mexico City. Last year there's just weapons everywhere. The chargers defense have a pass rush and they can contain Patrick Mahomes. At times in the past they have but it just doesn't translate to wins. The chargers came off their three point win at Cincinnati, which makes them feel a lot better. but just the whole thing about Dean Spanos he wanted a new stadium he went. So now he's sleeping on the food time at this so-fi stadium. and he got his wish it's probably good that they don't have any fans in the stands like they say as mariners on Monday night because I don't think there are a lot of charger fans quite honestly anywhere in the world much less Los. Angeles. I'll take the chiefs on the road by the way they're favored by eight and a half on the road. The Texans are Owen one and they're at home against the Ravens. The Ravens are a seven point favorite. This is where I'm going to turn the tables here. This is my upset special if you want to just by covering I don't like the Ravens in this game and it's not because of anything about Lamar Jackson who last week threw for two, seventy five and ran for forty five, thousand, three touchdowns no picks to Shawn Watson. WAS NOT. Great In his first game against Kansas, city, with a pick and a touchdown passes well. Just, think that the Texans are too good to go into I. don't care who they are playing after they lost on the road. They're gonNA, come home to Houston and I just think they're going to get it together. There will not be any fans by the way at in urged stadium team officials made the announcement. Last month and JJ. Watson, he can't remember the last time. He played a game at any level without a crowd. He said that he remembers when he played youth football, he could hear his grandfather going nuts. Lots said as an athlete if you can't get yourself ready and amped up to compete against another team and to compete at the highest level, and then you really probably shouldn't be out there in the first place. Yes. Otherwise Patrick Queen. Guy. WHO I really liked in college and I thought maybe the raiders might draft the Ravens took him and He was put right at Middle Linebacker and he had a great game led the team in tackles and he had a sack. It was very explosive at yellow issue and now he's explosive. In the NFL. was asked about the NFL on his debut. He said it's what I expected and I wanted to do better than I did but I'm grateful for what I got I prayed about it slept on it dreamed of making plays while the Texans don't have playmakers like the Andrea Hopkins anymore but we'll feller will fuller did step up last week and as I said, a lot of people will be like. Not, people like. Nokia, like I'm taking the Texans in this one. Once again. The seahawks host the Patriots on Sunday night football. and Bill Belichick said basically. Paraphrase that. He. Says that, Russell Wilson's underrated and he doesn't see a better quarterback in the entire NFL. He wouldn't have said that last year for obvious reasons by the Russell Wilson last week four touchdown passes no picks Cam Newton. Was doing his Michael Vick impression no touchdowns, no interceptions but ranch are seventy five and two touchdowns as well. Who did bill belichick replace as New England head coach Pete Carroll Twenty years. Ago. It's pretty amazing and back. Then if you'd say two decades later, will you be regarded as to the best coaches and? Always say, yes, we do. But Carol said neither of us are fly by night guys. There's a real fundamental connection that we were raised right by the people we grew up under, but I do think it's a lot easier to stay with it. When you win, it's hard if you get your butt kicked week in week out. Are To hold your job and these opportunities. Well. Bella. Check also added. When you're trying to do a good job in the situation that you're in the fact is that we're still coaching on our paths are still crossing. I guess we've done pretty well or somebody would have replaced us. I have a ton of respect for all that pizza accomplished both Seattle USC and other places in his career as well. Really. Do you really admire what he did? With. The New York jets. Here's the thing who's older. Ballot check is wrong. Pete Carroll is older. I hear P carroll sixty nine. and Bill. Bell. Check is sixty eight. Two of the oldest coaches to coaches both trying to get The to know as well. And remember Jamal Adams. They gave up a lot to get him. Did Seattle and in his debut, he led the team in tackles with twelve tackles for alas. Loss and a sack as well taking a lot of the. Pressure. Off of Bobby Wagner, at at running back. I want to see what happens with. Cam Newton how they run them this week. And by the way, nick folk was not perfect in week one as the Patriots Kicker. Nor was Justin Vasa. But for now nick folk is the guy. This'll be one of the loudest venues in the NFL if there were fans well, no fans will be allowed in centurylink field for at least three home. Games. And this is a stadium that has caused literally seismic activity. I believe the seahawks will win this game. We'll talk more about it on Monday. But we will have the first ever game. The Las Vegas Raiders in Las? Vegas. And it was supposed to be a big celebration. Now but they'll have the New Orleans saints coming in fresh off beating Tom Brady and Tampa Bay. there'll be national televised audience. A two billion dollar stadium bill mostly with tax money that was supposed to go to state of Nevada schools mark. Davis said he won't go until the fans can go. Eric Harley said. It still is a football fan a cool feeling to be able to play Monday night. We wish our city here. Las Vegas. We wish they could experience it with us. Sure. They'll be around somewhere I'm sure there is a certain street or stripped they'll be on that are fans will be at, but I wish they could be there. But hopefully, it feels the same energy and all those kinds of things. Their car, what you want them to gather. Are we not supposed to? Gather right now. Jon Gruden said Mark Davis is the owner of this team. He's very passionate about our fan base were so excited to have our debut in front of our Raider fans here in Vegas it's disappointing though. That's the stupidest thing. Jon Gruden has everson his life. Because if you care about Raider fans, you wouldn't have moved them away not in front of the new fake ones. I'm traveling rick. I'm real not you didn't mean you. Sean. Payton in Jon Gruden have coach together before they've known each other for a long time they have connections under railroads. This I'd like to say the raiders are going to win this but the raiders really should have lost against Carolina Matt ruled and screw it up for them by knocking the ball to McCaffrey. The saints I don't see the raiders. Stopping Kamera. Drew brees will go a little nuts and if he doesn't go nuts, they'll do a trick played taste them hill. At some point. So. And by the way in this game. The saints are favored by five and a half I. Think they win by a touchdown. Hope I'm wrong though. We'll take a quick break coming back on sports. Blues. Tally. I like.

Me, asking a asking me about if I wanted judd lower back on the as like I. Don't even WanNa work as Simeon back and he played every game last year Jed Lowrie. When you look at his contributions to the New York mets. And you guess you could say through no fault of his own because he's been hurt. But he was there for a possible two, hundred and twenty two games. And he played in nine none of them in the field. So he didn't even need a glove the last two seasons. He made eight total plate appearances. He got no hits. And he got one walk and he made twenty million dollars. So. He literally received twenty million dollars for a base on balls. The. You could say if you walk in the winning running game seven and the world series, that's an expensive walk because you don't get the cash and being champs and merchant all that. But if you look at it the other way. Jeb shed lowry the poor guy with his knee. Do I want Jed Lowrie back out? Why would it? Why would anybody even suggest that? Why would you even suggest it? Twenty million dollars for a one walk. As I said, I know he was hurt and he couldn't help I guess.

You're listening to wrestling observer live with Bryan Alvarez and Mike. Semper Vivey. byline broadcasting network. In the show Brian Elber is here Wrestling Observer Alive of Mexican. Wrestling Observer DOT COM WEDNESDAYS AWA dynamite. Eight hundred eighty six, thousand viewers. Twelve point eight percent from last week up almost ten percent from the last time the show aired had within exte- and X T also up from the previous head battle six, hundred, eighty, nine, thousand viewers down seventeen point eight percent from running unopposed last. Tuesday. But up eleven percent from the last head to head week so. Both shows compared to the last time they went head-to-head they were both up about ten percent no NBA, no nhl new shows normal level of audience. I'm sure that won't last long dynamite finished third on cable and eighteen to forty nine demo point three, four rating down eight percent from last week up six percent from August twelve and x t eight point one eight and the Demo thirty on cable down fifteen percent last week but up twelve percent. From August twelve, of course as always a d one everything. Except people over fifty where exte- had the advantage although it was closer point three to two point three six. That was closer there. Maybe maybe trends mother is going to help a w win that over fifty demo. People eighteen to thirty four AWA huge advantage point two, four, annex tease point one. Eight wbz everything on cable in people eighteen to thirty four maybe everything on cable in males eighteen to thirty four and overall they finished third in eighteen, forty, nine, which I'm pretty sure is the all-time highest they have ever finished. In the demos so quite frankly going head to head again, both of those numbers were good both shows were good. Obviously the news cycle I mean some disasters befall us at anytime. So they'll be contending with Adam sure before too long but so far. So good moving back to Wednesday nights. Yeah latter television competition is for next week but one point five, seven, five, million between both or very, very good I was hoping. That this number would be good because they had good shows and hopefully gun all depending on what the competition is next week both shows should be up because I I would assume that word got out and Bo show should be rewarded for the good shows that they put on this week we'll have to see but that's really the the biggest. One it comes to these ratings are likes to over the biggest one for me is actually the over all audiences the one that I always kind of key in on the most not to say that the others aren't important for different reasons but for my own selfish reasons, the overall number and how many people are actually checking out both. So's really the most important thing to me, and again they had good shows last time around hopefully competition and so tough this upcoming week so they can both benefit again. So on Wednesday, they announced the goblet. For the number one contender ship to Finn Valor, there's going to be a women's battle royal as well but. To competitors will enter every four minutes. Another competitor enters. The hell was that. I'm hearing myself in my own my own head the only way to be eliminated via pin fall or submission, and last man standing will become the number one contender. So basically, you can either look at it as as tech warfare with five guys or elimination chamber with no chamber as what we're talking about for next week, they announced this. William Regal says five men. They show footage on the screen of nine men which last I checked was more than five I could be wrong with my math. They didn't announce any names on USA network national television. But yesterday we got her first name on social. Media. And that is Kushida. Wide Issue I entered this drives me absolutely crazy dude listen to skeptic two seconds to think about this but. I know that they want stuff for social media and so their idea was well, we won't announce any names and then we will announce one neighbor day for five days to get people excited about the match. I got a better idea. How about on Wednesday you actually announce all five names on national television and then on social media over the next five days, you release a promo from every one of those guys talking about why they want to win the match there. You've got names announced on national television you promote it on national television, and then for your social media hardcore is you've got new content for them every day it's not that hard. It's way to pro wrestling. It's like those old localized promos that they got rid of the US to sell people and get people excited and have people of this era going back and going man dusty Rhodes Ric flair all those guys regret promos. Yeah. Imagine if they did something like that. We didn't. We have a situation where Zelina Vega House. Busted into. By. WHO WAS IT God somebody broken his Lena Vegas. Zoom Zoom. Nothing different I and that's the thing was it led to nothing was. For it it was. Okay God Bianca. Belair Blair's thank you very much. That's what she's been utilized. On TV I've forgotten her name shame on me shame on them for not focusing on her more and bringing back people like me which I have. That's a separate subject. But you more things like that do utilize social media better utilize it for Promos, utilize it for wacky situations like that. Do that make sure you have the names, your superstars that's what you should be selling on the show and have all this other. Stuff come later you don't have time for gimmicks. You don't have enough is on you. You don't have enough people viewing to do dumb goofy gimmicks right now do what you do best have these people have their names put out there and then the other stuff later on make sure people know that valor is going to be on the show make sure you know that whatever your biggest stars are wherever you're pushing the most make sure that people know they're going to be there everything else comes second. 'cause. Shida here tweeted. You may not remember ten years ago of passed since I I fought you. The time has finally come a merciless I've removed the limiter. In Ballard all definitely stand in front of you see you a takeover. To which val responded. On twitter I like you 'cause Sheena good luck in the Gauntlet I hope you win. So I can beat you again I did ten years ago nine years ago eight years ago seven years ago six years ago etcetera etcetera. Would have been that hard to fill those promos and put them on twitter as voltages tweeting about it. Yet but the problem is they've also actually had stuff like that. Good, stuff that actually have done it. Right. That has gone up on WW DOT COM and gone up on people's private instagram's and twitter's, and they could be used and they're not. And for whatever reason they don't, and that's the other thing too is if you're going to do stuff like this. It back into the show too. So it gives people a reason actually like you know keep the cycle going Oh, they've announced these matches they announced this person's you're going to be on the card you know, and then there's always going to be a good Promo WanNa hear what they have to say or I to see what wacky could happen again they get so far away from what they should be doing it. Kinda, drives me nuts and I know drives you nuts. It's coming well, tonight, actually smackdown we've got. Hey Jay styles versus Sammy Zane tonight, this is a battle that will lead to I'm sure a three way for both of the intercontinental titles. We, got moment of Bliss with Nicky. Cross for that's GonNa. Go well. Roman reigns in Jay use overs Barron, Corbin and shameless in a Samoan streetfight. Coming on the heels by the way of the streetfight that finished off Awa today's earlier. and. Sasha banks will return on this week show and she will respond to you Bailey's that's coming up tonight. On the. SMACKDOWN show I don't know those two street fights have necessarily anything to do with each other. They'd if you're going to have a junkyard streetfight if they would've announced that for smackdown would I would cringe a little bit more at it but this is just you know an easy way for Roman to beat up Jay at the end of it. Spurs. It's very skeptical that Kushida will be allowed to remove the limiter. Well Hey, he was. He was a for wrestler on Wednesday. He beat the Holy Hell Out of Austin theory was the greatest. This person here says. Maryland one is twitch stream on Tuesday said, he didn't know much about hangman page, but he watched the match with Zarian and said, it was quote fivestarsoap. Funny that he's using Dave's Gimmick. I duNNo. If I call the five star match but was a pretty damn good match as was the streetfight as was the thunder Rosa match as was the Damian.

Joe, Bryan Alvarez here wrestling observer live a mix of reveals wrestling. OBSERVER DOT COM. Gotti. Lot of feedback here? I noticed this next NFC takeover. So rushed, it doesn't even have a name. Shop. Just totally came out of nowhere. I mean the impression that I got was. They didn't want to do a takeover before survivor series because next he's probably going to be in survivor series and they wanted them to be I. Guess Exclusive to survivor series or something I. Don't know. And here we are. We got a random October fourth or whatever. The date is takeover with three weeks. Actually two weeks build because they're going to figure out who the number one contenders are a next week show, which means week after that, they'll have a go home show and then they'll have takeover. They'll look at me. I cannot explain this. And I've tried. Spurs in here says. SASHA BANKS IS NOT ON TV via satellite in a neck brace then the story is already lost well, they haven't said that she's going to be there. They merely said that she will make an appearance. I think it's too early for an appearance but I guess they really want them to wrestle on the next pay per view. So. I guess that's what were as what we're doing. Why rush things? It's crazy that that one's crazy because of the way she went out because of the reaction that a got you know you're just going to build up anticipation more this thought that like. Just because she's going to be off for awhile Amine wwe doesn't realize that usually when they pull people off TV or when somebody gets injured and they go away for a long time, the more popular than ever when they come back because they're not looking like crap on TV every week and their Russian this thing way too fast. And I worry about because of the stupi sorely stupid story lines that they usually put together. This one is so easy and they've been bungling it for so long and then they were falling on a good stretch with them as a team and then they go ahead and they rush them. Okay. That Bailey splits everything everything fell wrong in Bailey. Turning everything felt wrong with barely during because they. Wanted People to actually have some sympathy on Sasha, but they never made Bailey look bad enough everything about this has been a failure and barely turns and it still is working and that's what makes me worry about it starting back up. So quickly because I don't know if Sasha banks is going to be out there in a neck brace or on via satellite, which is where she should be i. Can See her coming right back out there and going toe to toe with again and I just think that's silly now again, it's the one of the best things that they have. It might be the second or first best thing on the show he gets depending on how you look at Roman reigns and Paul. Heyman right now but like again. I just I'm hoping against hope that everything actually. Goes really smooth here, and they don't rush everything. They don't have to have imagined hell in the cell even though I know that's what they're leading to. It's just silly because Sasha should get again Sasha should lose anyway but she should really be afflicted going into that and I don't know I. Just think it's this whole thing is we'll see how it goes but I think it's crazy to Russia. All right. Well, this person says. Have you seen the video of evily seemingly not cooperating with Rosa in the match on dynamite this week I didn't notice during the show but watching the video back looks very obvious. Listen I watched the match the first couple of minutes of the match. They had a very choreographed opening sequence and it was slow and it looked like somebody forgot something it wasn't smooth. But. Other than that I did not notice anything watching the match. Next thing I know there's the story that they were shooting or something. So. I asked multiple people in a W. Nobody had any idea what this story was all about. They did their match they went backstage. There was zero issue there being booked together. Neither of them are under contract with a w. you're telling me that they were shooting in the ring and then the decision is, well, we're gonNA bring you back next week and put you in another match together. I'm ninety, nine, point, nine, nine, nine, nine, nine, nine, nine, nine, nine, nine, nine, percent certain. That was no shooting net match nobody knew anything about it, and in fact, one person told me that they put those spots in there because of thunder roses, MMA background and I think evil lease trained and they were spots. So. No there was no shoot in the ring on dynamite show this past Wednesday night. Spurs in here says any idea why Joey Jamila was banned from Youtube? Dude if I followed social media's closely as I should back at answer these questions but I I I don't know. I NEAR SAYS Not. To get political but how much does bind beating trump effect the deputy vince well, I I would suspect not much but you never know But I would I would suspect I mean obviously, Linda will be out of power but I don't think you're gonNA see like massive changes within. W. Well I mean. State tax you know things of that nature. Sure. I mean, I guess from a corporate point of view it will affect them that way from a wealth point of view when it comes to taxes or other things than. Yeah. Maybe. But as far as the product goes unless Andrew Yang is going to be instilled as the Department of Labor head and he wants to start taking a real hard look at independent contractors and wants to crack open that box I mean. I don't know really how much else it can really affect anything I. Mean how much did it affect the product? Over, the last how many years I mean that's one thing they usually have tried to stay away from other than Linda Senate run where they did the flashback scene and some other times. Oh my his first year says, Sasha banks was already on the bump last week Brian and she was fine and not selling it. Well, we'll see what they do tonight. See what they do tonight. Dumb. Debbie Time Sasha banks is faced turned to take place at the same time mandatory in season two was announced a call made by Disney maybe I highly doubt it I highly doubt it. If they normally did injury angles where people weren't really injured and they kept out of action for like two months instead of a big return I'd say maybe, but this is par for the course like look quickly ray Mr you'll return from having his eyeball yanked out of his skull I. Mean this stuff happens all the time. So no I don't. I. Don't think that this was time for that reason plus if you're gonNA time at time it for when the show's about to come out not just when it's announced. Person here says. Thank you so much for the arcade documentary recommendation by question. Now, what is his overall legacy? Do you think that he redeemed himself and should he do a one off on TV is a full circle thing here's the thing with David Arquette. Like if you follow wwe or w closely when our cat became the champion. Artistic really hung up on on his legacy and how fans hated him and and this, and that neo thing. And God bless the guy but I mean, that wasn't true. Nobody held us against. David Arquette. Everybody held it against WCW. In facts, I think most people that followed pretty closely know that a David Arquette didn't want to be the chip he argued against it he tried to make them not make him the champion, and then even though they made him that she like all of the money that he made he donated to if I recall correctly like own hearts family and there was one other donation if I that he made. As. Well so he just gave all of his money back to people in the wrestling business that had had tragedies nobody held this against David arquette nobody thought this was his fault. They thought it was a dumb idea that WCW did and he just happened to be the recipient but either I don't know if like really nice mind he believes that people hated him but I don't think anybody hated David Arquette. David Arquette. Really Big Fan and he such big wrestling fan. He didn't want to be the symbol of everything that's wrong with pro wrestling and one of the things that was wrong with pro wrestling was the way the WCW eight itself and he is the no put asses in seats ready to rumble. David Arquette. Is the world heavyweight champion that's was I'm sure in his mind a black mark and look how people reacted. You know imagine if. Something like that were to happen now I guess in now it wouldn't. It wouldn't have as much of an impact, but if social media was what it was then I mean I can imagine what David arquette would have had to hear just for doing his job and just for being a fan and wanting to be involved in the business and trying to get a movie that was the thing is crappy is that movie was it was a movie? They tried to bring WCW to like the big stage. I mean as a wrestling fan i. mean he was all about it and he obviously was stung by all of the criticism and everything else and wanted to redeem himself and his own is and I'm sure you know I. I'm sure it doesn't way on him every night or anything like that. I'm sure part of it is using that background and using those emotions that he felt as A. Way to sell this documentary to sell his independent wrestling appearances. But Hey, I mean quitting with with Nick Gage and W when they were out there and all the stuff he did that people didn't know about showing up as Volusia mask on and training and doing all that sort of stuff I mean hey I David. arquette story to me in his legacy is going to be one of a wrestling fan that was able to get in there and. Be a part of the action and actually gave wrestling more than what it gives other people and what other people have given wrestling I mean guys like David Arquette the Kevin Greens of the world those people that really worth our core fans more than anything mean they're better than any celebrity that comes along and it happens to score just because they're big name.

You're listening to wrestling observer live with Bryan Alvarez and Mike Semper v on the sports byline broadcasting network. are going to show Bryan Alvarez here wrestling observer alive and Mike Zimmer v Wrestling Observer Dot. com. And yes, we have in fact moved into the year twenty twenty which is not always a good thing but jay lethal here joining US beautiful hd from his palatial estate. J. It's going great and does speaking of twenty twenty not to start off on a sad note. There was a point there were I thought. Wrestling in twenty twenty was going to go by by terrifying I don't know about you or what your thoughts were on, but I thought for a second. This could be the end of wrestling for a little while. But you know when we when everything I shut down, which was very early here it was like March it for shut down here. But and then wrestling started going on hold I did a deal where if you were an indie worker who wasn't getting any bookings, I was just opening up slots on the show for you to come on and and sell your shirts or whatever Blah Blah. So I I told my producer do this for the next thirty days. and. Then like about you know a couple of weeks and I was like, okay, let's extend it to sixty days I just figured. You know it's GonNa. Be a while. And then all of these shows start rescheduling for the fall and you're thinking okay. Well, hopefully by the fall now here we are at September their shows running but I mean. Dude. It's GonNa be a while it's looking up here. Yeah. So how much time did you take off like how many? How many months where you're not doing anything? think about five right the. So the last show I had before we from the pure tournament was in February. So. Yeah. Since February I mean that doesn't mean that was out of the ring completely I have a school here in Tampa. So access to a ring unlike some of the guys. Yeah, I haven't I. Haven't had a shows since February? J You had all this stuff set up. You know the pure title tournament there were all these things being set up for the year both going into wrestlemainia weekend. Then out of that, a lot of plans that ring of honor had that we're gonNA see hopefully come to fruition now. But what did they tell you what are away to tell you what did anything come down from sinclair when things started to to close up what were you told and how much were you guys let in on as far as what the plans were going to be and how they were going to take care of you or not take care of you so when we got to Las Vegas for our pay per view, some people had made it into Vegas before getting a call saying that were no shows some people got the call before they board their flight I came into Vegas early. So I I didn't get that call in time although part of me believes that even if I got the call, I still would've gone to Vegas because I love Vegas. So the show didn't happen. We all go home and everybody's kind of in the state of Wisconsin on like come. How long is this can happen for about a week or so later, we all they had called zoom call zoom meeting with everybody on the roster. and at the time I think wwe was still running shows but no people in the arena there might have been wanted to other shows with nobody in the crowd and pretty much the owner joke off he pretty much said in zoom call. I'm not a big fan of the. No arena matches I mean it's rustling sure. But I'm not the biggest fan of them and he goes I rather keep my guys safe. I don't want any of my guys in the airports right now. I don't want my wrestlers in hotels during this pandemic. So just stay home. I, mean he's literally saying. We're going to keep paying you just stay home and be safe until we can get back to normal The crazy thing is. Everybody's like, yeah what a cool boss but deep down inside if we can't Russell what I mean, that's all some of us have especially myself by can't Russell it's like I can't live I can't breathe I, put all my eggs in the wrestling basket. And I got no backup. So I needed to Russell and I think Joe. Felt that a lot of us really didn't WanNa Russell. So then they put out this anonymous. Email where you can respond anonymously this some kind of form you fill out. and. Pretty much said, Hey I. Think you guys WanNa Russell that's the levels getting. Is that true? If we had shows would you WANNA fly and British everybody said Yeah. I mean. We'll fly tomorrow few ask US and I'm pretty sure that's why we had this shows so soon if it wasn't for that I think we would've eventually how these shows but much later. That Dave actually I brought up to me a few months ago was I can't remember what match we were watching, but it was it was a technical wrestling match. Probably, some from New Japan or something like that and said, you know what? When, when you do a technical wrestling match as opposed to like a traditional match where you're playing to the crowd and you know listening for reaction and everything like that those kind of matches don't work in a pandemic but the technical wrestling matches, they work a lot better with no fans because they're not reliant. On fans, it would be like you know years ago when used to watch ultimate fighter and those raw not fully empty arena they're no fans. There were just corners and everything like that, and it never hurts the enjoyment of the show you just watching two people fight. They're not playing to the audience or anything like that. So it is interesting that the first show back that you guys do. It's the pure title tournament. It's all wrestling no man against run-ins etcetera. I well, you're right about the way the pure wrestling works with no crowds but I think one thing that really really helps is I'm seeing these for the first a lot of us are seniors for the first time just like you guys. And just like the fans these amazing video packages. The way it's set up, it really gets you in the mindset. Okay. You're not gonNA see the traditional crash course stahl wrestling with the high flying, jumping over the ropes which I love that style of wrestling but. It will it really did something cool and special to you this video really which on the mindset. Okay. We're going to watch these athletes, rustlers, Jane Rustling and Schumer Wrestling Skill I. mean that video package really set the stage and I think that's why that's just my opinion I think it did so well. It really man those videos were done. Amazing. I mean and like I said, we didn't see those visit were as wrestlers were watching those videos come out for the first time we're seeing for the first time just like you guys are and Yeah. What a man? It just does a great job of setting it up. So good. So no spoilers obviously but like when when they approached you and everyone else in the tournament, you know how far you're going tournaments or did they just tell you like right before the match starts? Some of US found out ahead of time and some of US didn't, and we kind of figured that the the Munzer didn't maybe weren't going as far at one one partout you know at these shows normally you can after or before your match, you can watch the match in the ring before you share as a wrestler, you need to watch that much before because it'll tell you what you need to do to top it and that we couldn't. We couldn't do that. That wasn't available to us. They US you into this room it's just. You and your opponent then you gotta get out may disinfected. You can't come back in there and after your match they whisk you to a different room you get dressed and then your shovel back in the hotel and you can't leave your room. So we didn't even get to see the matches. So when the shows air we're as wrestlers were all watching the whole show for the first time, these amazing video packages I'm getting to watch these matches I wish that I saw him at the building but I, didn't I'm really looking forward to see rockies match. So. Yeah. We're all watching these shows as it happens just like you guys are because we we weren't told much. So the reason I ask is I mean, did you Dalton both know who is winning when you did those those videos talking about the match? Yet okay yes. Sorry. The show was taped I the video. We had a Promo Day on the second is see. Okay we didn't. We didn't. We weren't in the same room for the promos obviously, but we Promo Day was on the second day. The reason I ask this question is. The first Promo video that I saw was yours it was so good. And when it was over I was like There's no way. jeeze losing this match. So then Dalton comes on screen. and. Like his from was so good. That was like there's no way Dalton's losing this match. And so I watch I had no idea who's winning and I watched the match and. Sort of air. So we could say, but I mean you won the match but I mean he was so convincing in his promo about no one takes me seriously anymore I've gotta prove I'm still a bad man and I've had these and it's like the sky can lose you just can't. But then he went in and lost because it's pure tournament there will be winners and losers and some people's hearts will be broken. The I saw. I saw Dalton's video I before I saw mine and when I remember seeing his and I was like, Oh my God this video is incredible. I can't wait to see I can't wait to see mine. This is so cool and then I was searching I confided then someone sent me the link and was like Oh here you go. You can the out or whatever then I watched it and I just fell in love with I said, could you imagine even after this tournaments over depending on how wrestling is? The Lady's promos are fun to get to learn about each wrestler even if there's not much you know about them could you imagine doing the same thing with like the tag team? Or the women's division. For Women Win of you ever seen promos like that for women like I mean, the sky's the limit on the way we could the things we could do with the way they shot all this stuff I think. All, these desperate situations because of covert have brought some good stuff you know a. w. running dailies place outside has been a really cool visual new Japan with lions break, and now with doing lines break crown is something that I hope they actually hold onto and now with ring of honor with with this type of style I mean it's kind of their own unique throwback to you joke off was probably very used to way back in the day when you've watched TV and they'd have the Pwi. Sit Down Scouting report and they'd have these les. Thatcher personality profiles on guys I mean from what you've seen in the pandemic era of some of the stuff that's out there I mean obviously want to hold onto this. Are there some other things that have come up where it's like? Hey, this is stuff that we need to incorporate back in when times are smooth again. What was that last part I'm sorry skittled. Are Smooth. Again, what are some things that you want to see from this era like these interviews you must see this kind of hold on and have you seen some things that have come from desperate situations that you'd like to see Meld back in when things are normal again well, definitely these interviews I mean. The title matches they already have this high status, but the lower card matches I mean, could you imagine these? It wouldn't no. One would get sick of them but could you imagine these? Promo videos for almost every match make almost every much. He'll so special like I don't know how many times you can do that before people get sick of them but I I'm all for tilling. Kit. Until they get sick of it I definitely think this is something that we need to keep doing. Well, yes you probably don't know the answer to this and it's kind of the same question but I mean I was told you know like a ago that nobody is doing what we're doing for this pure tournament and wrestling and the time it was like, how could someone? Be doing something that nobody else is doing. But when you watch it, nobody is doing this and the feedback that I got from. The first show is like our which needs to just like do this forever like this, this people really seem to like this so you know anything I mean, is this the future direction or is it just only for this pure title tournament? No idea. I have. My fingers are crossed this this at least something along the lines of this is going to continue forever because I like I said, I'm watching all this stuff for the first time because I haven't seen any of the shows we seem none of the video I just being made. So I'm becoming a fan of the place that I work even more so now. So I hope this continues but no we I don't know We weren't told much of anything and I think it's also to There are no secrets and wrestling but yet, no one seems to know who was one mistake ornament yet, which is I think no spoilers. Think. We'll we'll blame it on the the state of rustling and Govan such birth I. think that's cool too that no one has seen a spoiler or anything. Now This whole. Already been taped I. Mean have they given you a future date for the next set of tapings? We got like ten seconds which yes or no? I think we're taping next month I. think okay.

EP98 Year Round Throwing Dos and Donts; Does Hand Size Matter in Throwing a Changeup? Plus: Pick Offs

"You're listening to the deer baseball Gods podcast off. And on this show. You'll learn advanced concepts in baseball explained simply. I'm here to guide you on your baseball journey and help you paddle through. It's now a notion of misinformation Guru ISM an awfully technical Diamond Babble. Welcome back to the dealer baseball guys podcast. I'm Dan Blewett. This is episode 98 and today's episode were in a cover number one year round throwing what does that look like obviously right now it's the fall. So hopefully you're listening to this episode and September October. If you're not it'll still be relevant next year, but it's a great time to talk about what you should be doing in the fall and should you be tapering down you're throwing should you be taking a break all that sort of stuff off? Will cover that today. We're also going to cover a major change up myth which is do you have to have big hands to throw a changeup effectively. I just listened to a youth baseball podcast. I heard a pitching guy perpetuating this myth. So we're going to kind of come back at him here. And lastly. Let's talk about pickoffs pickoffs are overlooked underrated something that needs to be practiced. Okay. So first thing if you're a parent or if you're an athlete and you're a picture or your son is a pitcher throwing and your year-long throwing regimen is important. It's important to map out your year and understand when you're going to take breaks when you're not what you want to do and also sort of like, you know, maybe what might be unique about the way you thought all the way you train about your body. Some players need more rest than others some players who play multiple Sports have different, you know, they kind of have rest built into their year. So lots of different things to watch over but first thing to talk about number one, if you're not aware of this resource the SMI, which the American Sports Medicine Institute they've teamed up with Major League Baseball. They have a website called off Pitch smart and on the pitch smart website, which you can just Google this also put the link in the in the show notes on the pitch smart website gives you information about pitching injuries and And injury factors, so it explains all the different things that contribute to injury that they found through their extensive research in the last couple of decades on on baseball players. So if you're not aware of that that's what should be always your goal your go-to. There's a lot of disinformation on the web. There's a lot of ways it can be muddied. I'm on a muddy it just a hair here today, but in general I follow those rules and I think they're all very very sound they're done by lots and lots of smart researchers. And so that's definitely your your research. So now when I say, I'm going to gain a little bit the only thing I'm going to push back on so they recommend that every player take two or three months off of throwing every year and they're somewhat unclear about what exactly off means and so this is what I want to again. I'm not saying muddying it, but I want you to think about what off really means for a thrower so they mean off from competitive Thursday. And typically the recommendation is two or three months completely off. So like not throwing a ball at all. Now, I think athletes are capable. I think baseball players are capable of throwing year-round if they so choose but they are certainly not capable of competitive pitching year-round. So if you're competitively pitching in the spring and then your competitors pitching in the summer and then you're pretty much done for the year, but you still want to like play shortstop and you want to play catch and you're going to play backyard baseball and you know, go play catch with your dad a couple of days a week. Whatever. I don't see any reason that that's going to contribute to long-term injury. Another research has been studying that they've been doing research on competitive pitching and players that pitch more in a hundred years or a hundred things combined a year or at a much higher injury rate and players that competitively pitch year round. So that means they're competitively pitching further spring team summer team fall team, maybe even a winner team of their income off. On your Texas or Arizona, you know one of the warm weather States, so that's the big distinction. So I don't think players and parents need to be afraid of picking up a ball in November December Jake if they so choose and you know taking ground balls throwing them across the infield playing catch, you know, spinning a breaking ball at half speed while working on you know are working on their new change up by playing catch. So I just think there's you need to know what phase you're entering in and there's a good period of time and this is probably it in the fall and winter before you start to ramp back up where it's fine to play catch a lot. And again throw your change of throw your curve ball. Do all these things but in a completely non-competitive setting like you're just going to stretch it out a little bit come back in and walk in some of these, you know off-speed pitches and I have a little flat ground and throw it half-speed three-quarter speed and just throw but not come anywhere close to to blowing it out and going full speed home. So I think one of the analogies that people use is Runners a lot of people who are competitive Runners are just very Avid Runners. They pretty much don't like to take time off like their body feels better when they took the routine and they're always getting their three runs in a week or five runs in a week or whatever and they sort just like feel rickety when they take a week off or take two weeks off or take a month back or take a month off and then come back and I think there is something to be said for that. I think that there is something like greasing the groove. So to speak like weight lifters have the same thing like they feel like, you know competitive powerlifters and weightlifters Thursday. They they squat a lot and they feel like they're continued no continuing to squat regularly their hips staymobile like everything just like kind of stays in line and I would say the throwing feels the same way too. It's it's kind of rough coming back after a couple of months solid off and now I do think again this needs to be taken into context. So, you know if you're a young place And you through twenty-five competitive innings in the summer, which if you're not a prime picture on your team, if you're just like a reliever or you're just on not hyper competitive team, you might only throw twenty five innings in the spring and maybe like 20 games in the summer. You know it so it's not like you've been overused where you should absolutely not touch a ball you are probably find again just like keep playing catch and throw the ball across the infield take ground balls just like do baseball things and don't pitch and perfectly fine. If you're someone like me where after my rookie season of baseball pro ball, I threw more innings in one summer had in the previous three years combined in college and it was also partly because I was injured a lot but I think I threw a hundred like 130 Innings my my which isn't even that many in the grand scheme of things like most minor Leaguers who are starters will get to 150 or 160 a lot of times, but I feel like a hundred twenty Innings 130 Innings my rookie year and that was like 12 a.m. Need to straight starts or something. I had never done that before in my arm was not feeling great and that last start so I did take two solid months off from throwing my body was exhausted. I need to recover and that was my choice and I feel like that was the best choice for me. Like I just was like mentally and physically ready to just like get the ball away from me and some of your kids are probably like that too. And if you're a choice other listing you probably been that situation too. I know some high schoolers, you know, you play your high school season, then you go right into your summer season, then you might have a bunch of showcases and you my track up seventy five innings in that in that cute a timer hopefully not more but certainly possibly more and so you might be like, yeah, I'm ready to just like get off me ball take a couple of months and just not even think about throwing a baseball and that's totally fine. So obviously, Any anyone who's been in the game for a long time is going to say, you know, listen to your body. Listen to The Experts and do what you think is logical and reasonable and I think that's just the thing everyone needs to come back every year and and kind of audit what you've done for the season for the year and say, all right, we've we've thrown a lot. How does your body feel a little Timmy? I feel actually took good like, you know, we've yeah, I pitched a lot but you know, I feel we got a bunch of rats. We had some vacation weeks in the middle and we had a couple, you know, we like a month break between seasons and you know, look at their workload and make an informed decision and there's other kids where they might feel like they're raring to go but they really did throw too much and they really do need some time off. So there's lots of things to consider and so my overarching point here is make logical choices. Don't feel you absolutely should not be playing competitive baseball for three seasons of the year. So if you're playing Spring ball and Summer Ball dog, Play fall ball ball ball just sucks. It just sucks. It just sucks as a player it Heats your arm back up and you pitch once a week for like two or three Innings and meaningless games. It's just a waste. It's it's better if you're a position player or if you need to get some at-bats stuff like that this year with coronavirus. I certainly understand the utility because guys pretty much missed a whole season so long they're making up, you know some Innings but in general, I think it's best to just plan to not do fall ball and and here's my thing with fall ball. And with that essentially maybe like the third season of the year is that you end up just okay fall ball not a rigorous schedule, right? Maybe only pay like eight games and four weeks or eight games in eight weeks like you just play a doubleheader on the weekends or something like that. But as long as a pitcher if you're going to pitch in these you still have to like keep your arm in shape. You can't just oh it's fall ball. I'm just going to put strings on Sunday. So I'm just going to play catch once during the week and then pitch my to age. That's terrible for your arm. So the the hazard with fall ball is a lot of people let down their guard and they think oh, it's just like half time. I'm just going to you know, play Pick-up basketball through the week and do whatever and then just like show but if you don't play ball if you're going to be a if you're going to be competitively pitching in any sense in any volume, you have to keep your arm in shape and this is what I had to always implore to my office. Like if you're going to play fall ball, okay, but you need to still throw four or five days a week to keep your arm in shape. You can't just again show up on Sunday and go through full speed for three Innings and expect your arm to be. All right with it. No as a fifteen-year-old your body is kind of okay with everything but it's going to definitely accumulate some wear and tear and that's not good. So pitchers needs maintain shape throughout every single season that they're in and this is another stipulation. So as a parent if your your son wants to play fall ball and he wants to pitch you have to say, okay, but are you going to be to commit perjury Growing four or five days a week to keep your arm in shape cuz you cannot just throw once during the week and then show up on Sunday and pitch and this almost sounds counterintuitive. Right? Like Oh So Daniel now Advocates need a through 5 days a week. Absolutely and that's you know, you're going to play catch on Tuesday. You're going to long toss stretch it out a little bit of a Wednesday. You're going to throw a bullpen on Thursday. You're going to take off on Friday your thoughts play catch on Saturday and you're going to pitch on Sunday. That's a normal routine your arm needs that amount of conditioning and again, none of that's like hard full speed work by any means is there to catch days of Bullpen day and a Long Tall stay off. All those are pretty much below full speed not pretty much they are you know Bullpen days is 75% effort day a long-toss day is like a an easy loose but stretch it out, maybe out to like 75% 90% day and then catch is like Fifty to seventy percent. So those things are necessary. So when you're committing to competitive pitching in any sense, you have to commit to keeping your arm in shape. Which means dead. At least four days a week or throwing and really more realistically five or six most pictures don't take off more than one or two days a week certainly not two days a week and usually guys will have just one day off a week is again, like it's greasing the groove. So to speak if you're a machine, you know, you have to have those catch days in your arm doesn't really feel better when you have multiple off days a week. And again, I'm just talking about playing catch like just throwing the ball. So these are all factors to consider. So your year-round throwing number one again taking time off from competitive pitching is critical. So again, it doesn't mean you have to completely not throw a ball at all for three or two or three or four months, but you do have to stop competitive pitching so pick two seasons make it spring and summer and Jake fall off from compared to pitching if you want to play fall ball. Okay, just do it as a position player only and if you're going to pitch you have to keep your arm and shape second item here wage. Other sports, you know, especially if you're below the age where you haven't committed to just baseball yet cuz I do think there's an age where you need to commit to just baseball. It's probably sixteen years old, you know, if you pull other sports they're great way to build in Fitness and other activities, you know other, you know forms of Team culture and camaraderie and and hard work and toughness all that stuff. So for the kids to play football in the fall wonderful for the guys that can throw the football around, you know, great. That's a it's a different Implement. I think that's good for your arm. You're not throwing a full football 92 miles per hour, you know, you throw a football it's like a 75% effort 90% effort kind of throw and it's heavier, and it's just different and I think it's stimulating and healthy and your forearm and just a different way. So I think other sports are great they build in some of that rest cuz they just make you too busy with the other sport to play too much baseball or to be out there on the competitive field again, either you have to stay home. Or you have to go down again. That's just I'm going to keep being this point out beating it to death and that you have to keep your arm in shape if you're going to play off and lastly again just think a little bit more about the analogy. I think there's a lot of human movements and activities that when you do it consistently your body says, this is good. I want to keep doing it consistently wage, even if it's just a low-level. So even though you might not be running competitive five k's, you know, just going out a nice easy, you know easy easy jog is going to kind of keep your legs, you know feel a little bit better than taking that that complete time off. So year-round throwing you do need to plan out your year. It's really really important. Make sure you have some some down time from competitive pitching and just be sensible with it. Sit down with your son once a year. If not more again audit what they've been doing see ask them how their body feels really take a hard look at home. Overall volume of throwing in pitching for the year and just make sensible choices for the future. Okay, so let's talk about a change of myth. That irks me people say that you really can't teach a change if the kids a small hands. So I'm just going to say that look I've taught chain dip stick kids of all shapes and sizes of all ages and they do just fine. They just they just do fine when you're competent and actually good at teaching the changes. So this comes back to you know, there's a reference a story in Pitch calling a lot where a team-mate was who didn't throw as hard as I didn't have as good a fastball sided. Here's talking about how to pitch to this one hitter. Who was he thought it was kind of dangerous and he said yeah, you know, he can't really throw this guy fast balls and to me I was saying yeah, you can't I can this is a saint is this scenario? So I heard this other guy who I'd never heard of before another Youth Baseball podcast talking about you know, why change essentially aren't good for youth players and one of his reasons was that page? Small hands, so they just can't throw him very well. Looks like yeah, you just can't teach it. Apparently whoever you are, but I can teach kids to throw a great changeup even with a small hands and look the thing is this the back end up is not this complex group or it has to be choked deep in your hand or you have to wrap your fingers around the ball. Absolutely not. All you have to do is get your thumb underneath it which any human hand is capable of doing and then you just need to put your two fingers together you get them on top of the ball and then you're goal is to sort of pronate in word on it and get this angled tumbling sort of disco ball spin off, which is a great new term. I learned recently and that's it's coined by one of Barton Smith's researchers over at the one of his assistants. I think faith in the Utah State University aerodynamics lab, so the way it just disco balls spins is a is exactly pretty much how I been teaching my changeup on my YouTube app. So if you're not familiar with that video and you want to learn a change up or you want to help teach someone to change I've definitely check that out. But the thing with change-ups is that they used to be taught in this nebulous m u s way where there's like a million different grips and you just Tinker into you find one. No one really knows why a change of goes slower. It just does you know, you talked to five different pitching coaches. They threw their chain to five different wage is and my goal is always to say this is stupid. That was my goal. That's what I was saying. I said, this is stupid. We need to find a repeatable way to teach this just like we do the curve ball, you know, you have a couple different groups you can use a curve ball, but they're really just finger placements. They're not really just different grips and we're all trying to get the same topspin just like clean fast spinning Top Spin to a curve ball bought a curve ball is a slider also has a pretty predefined set of spin characteristics that make it a slider and so I'm like, why is the change of not the same way in reality a sponge? To the way the chain of has been evolving cuz more and more Major Leaguers are throwing this sort of disco ball angled spinning tumbling change up. That's a little bit faster than the traditional one that has heavy sink and arm Side Run. It's a pitch that all you really have to do is get your thumb on the bottom of the ball two fingers on top, you know, the way the exact orientation of those fingers can vary and they just have to push down on the inside of the ball. As you're releasing it, so it's it's essentially not that different from a fastball release except you're getting on the inside like your if you have a can of Coke in your hand right now and you're pouring it out that's pronation and you're just essentially pronating on the inside of the ball a little bit early. The hand-sized doesn't really make a difference on that because whether your hands are big or small the ball is going to roll out of your fingers toward your tips and then a printed on the inward of it on the inside of it. That's when you're going to apply the spin so your fingers don't really matter like your finger length does not matter and I've taught a lot of little guys who are under five foot with small hands, you know, the the size of hand you'd expect from a 5-foot kid, and they've thrown changeups that sink and look great for being fifty miles per hour. I typically don't teach changeups two kids below has typically 12 because at that age like it's just like not necessary. It's just they're better off just throwing fastballs and just locating and just being comfortable with pitching. They just don't really need a second job. So typically it was twelve when I teach the first first change up, but I never had an issue and I never even considered it a handicapped and that's some of the things that's one of the things I think we do in life where it's when someone says, oh you can't do this because of this, you know, like oh, okay and you automatically make this artificial gate for yourself. Whereas I never thought instructor that hand size had anything to do with teaching a changeup. So just never even occurred to me is just like all right, let's get to work. Let's teach you this change up never even thought that oh, this kids got his hands too small to learn this. So you'll be careful out there. There's certainly misinformation and if you've heard that myth before that your hand size finger size Matters on a changeup. Ignore it. All right last on the docket today. Let's talk about pickoffs. So pickoffs are one of the most underrated things like players need to know them. It's always a little bit shocking to me how few players know the proper pickoffs to second base wage and have a good pick off to first base. I mean, these are they're not pivotal things in every game like you're not going to get in every game where a pickoff is going to make or break. You're right. You're not go pick off more than a handful of Runners a years or righty. I mean as a pro guy a pro righty starter, you'll pick off one or two guys a year tops and that's lucky if you just happen to catch them guess on guessing and that's really just bought a random. It really just random chance. If you just pick off to first base a hundred times in the summer, you're going to catch a guy leaning the wrong way and make a good throw, you know once and just get log That's really all it is. But being able to hold the runners, they said Hold the runners being able to hold Runners and keep them at second base. Don't let them steal third base with one thousand. Don't let him steal second base with no one out where they can just then manufacture runs that's important stuff. And also just having any ability to make good fakes and to figure out when a guy's Bunting and and those are more of like the same base pickoff moves. So my overarching point here today is just that people don't practice pickoffs. They just really don't and it's something that you learn and practice and you should do it and it's boring and it's tedious and you know you have to do in games a lot of pictures don't like picking two bases. I didn't particularly like it and so you end up just getting like this bare minimum dose like it's like you're a language class that you you took it in seventh grade or eighth grade and then you just never wanted to and so then you never even thought about algebra again like you didn't have to take more algebra. So you didn't and that's kind of how pickoffs are off. I like people to rethink this and I urge all the kids that I work with to to like look just just spend five minutes a week like during your your catch play when you're playing catch with your buddies before practice or before game just spend for pickoffs just for throws may come pick off. So, you know face the other direction do to spin moves do one inside move and do a couple pick-ups the first touch base like just do it as part of your routine semi-regularly or go out when you're playing catch with your dad and just turn away from him. Then just act like your pitch in the other direction and and then act like your pictures of the first and he becomes first based just add this to your routine. It doesn't have to be a huge like don't make it. You know, fifty go. Let's go do 50 pickoffs at the park. Like that's boring know wants to do that but box added to part of your routine. So especially when I work with Lefty pitchers, this was something I always did with lefties and I wasn't even a lefty but I'm like look, we're going to teach you a good hang move and a good snap through age. The younger you are the more inappropriate the snap throw is but it's something to learn to get comfortable with the snap throws the one where you step off rapidly and you throw like a like a you throw like a sidearm throw to first base off. So very all one motion throw on most kids don't ever learn it because it's more of like a college Pro kind of move but there's no reason to twelve-year-old can't have that move. You just have to practice it and he doesn't have long as much arm strength to kind of snap throw that ball over there. But my point is that for my lefties. I just beat it into their brains that you have to have a good pickoff move. It just it's just a shame and it's a waste if you're a lefty without a good pickoff move. It's purely effort. It's purely just showing up and doing the move regularly and for the two lefties on my 15000 team who practice their moves like semi religiously like they're going to do five or six pickoffs every time we play catch as a team. They picked off like eight guys each each wage. Some are like one kid picked off three runners in the same game and I don't think we got an out any of them that game that's besides the point. But I mean, these are fifteen year-old kids with dirty legitimately good pickoff moves and it wasn't because they were special it wasn't because they were talented it was because they showed up and it was part of their work out as part of their throwing routine and they worked on it, you know each other feedback on you know, how deceptive they were. And so even if you're a variety this is something that could be part of your routine where you know, you you go through your mechanics you go through your drink as you come back in you sprain your curveball you spend your changeup, you know, your partner gets down you throw a couple of fastballs to each knee and then you turn away and you do to first base pickoff moves to them. Then you turn off even farther you do to spin moves act like acting like your partner second baseman, then you do one inside move and do the same thing there. So again, this is a critical component of being good pitcher and it takes nothing more jobs. And just a little bit of effort and to have a move that's significantly better than your peers means you will get more Runners than them because your move will be abnormally good and no surprise owners. Like they'll be used to the average crappy pickoff move. And then you Mosey along and boom yours is like very quick and fast and you make more accurate throws in your peers because you make more throws and practice. It's a very underage thing.

If you want to check out this podcast you could check it out by going to any podcast reader. Slash feeder do a search for behind understood curtain dot com or search for yeah. I said it you can search on Apple. podcast Google play spotify stitcher any of those platforms orange forms also big announcement the show will now be on youtube starting on Saturdays will be doing it live on Youtube Z correct program on you to as we do the program so you can join us that way editor will also be available on audio platforms on this particular regular episode of Year. I said it I want to say the following. Don't believe anything that you hear in terms of news coming from training camp. Let me say that again. Don't believe any news that that you hear coming from training camp and that's no disrespect to Jeff Hartmann her Dave Scofield to host the Grind Anthony <hes> Pity Davis to Jim Wechsel to Ed Bouchette to mark Kabali to Chris Carter the any of those guys who who do fantastic work L. Lally F del Lally <hes> salt like don't don't believe anything myself included. Don't believe any report when it comes to training camp because in the famous words of Edgar Allan Poe believe leave nothing you hear and only half of that you see you know because in the beginning of football season particularly when you're talking what about training camp what's the popular phrase hope Springs Eternal. I mean Hail. You've listened to all of these pundits. Talk about the browns and how the combination of O._B.. Jay and Baker Mayfield they're going to the playoffs. They may win the Super Bowl. I mean hell that should convince adventure that you shouldn't believe anything any news. That's coming out of training camp. I mean at this time of the season. The raiders are relevant. I mean the big news right. Now is Mr third and fifth in a hot air balloon. I mean how people are even optimistic. Stick about the Mongols so at this point in time. Don't believe anything that you hear coming out of training camp. I mean if you were to believe everything that you heard coming out of training camp deontay Johnson will be Calvin. Johnson Juju is faster than you you same bolt. Oh Lot is demand for defense is faster. Justin Lane Sucks ardy burned his plans salad football. The the defense is beating the offense and seven shots look man none of that means anything in the beauty of it all all is you have your own two eyes and the game is going to be played very soon. I believe it's August ninth is is the first preseason game. Kill me if I'm wrong. When the first game is played that's when you can judge what's going on in preseason and in training camp in even of that to Edgar Allan Poe's point only believe half of what you see because the offense is going to be down down from a package perspective? The defense is going to be doubt down from package perspective so you're only going to see what they want you to see and that includes the same things in practice I mean how much can you glean from the team beating up on the team team in training camp any because that doesn't matter it doesn't matter if all Alah is killing binney snail junior believe it if you want because it doesn't matter anyway it's all hyperbole. All of this is hyperbole at this point in the season. You might be saying to yourself. Why are you arguing that all of this hyperbole when you want Because I want you to consume it with the right perspective I think the content and fairness to all the names that I named is solid. They are seeing what they are seeing see but it's within a certain context a very limited context in practice so what they are actually seeing and reporting on in terms terms of the totality of everything doesn't really mean anything. It doesn't mean anything until you play against somebody else now. If you want glean some salient information from a training camp post or something like that wait until the teams go up in drills or they go in these these split practices where they practice another team where you can see if what you are doing actually works because somebody is really going one two hundred miles per hour in trying to stop you. I mean currently the defense isn't playing balls to the walls and trying to really stop the offense. I mean quarterbacks play with red shirts. That's not football in the red. Shirt is don't hit that guy. I mean guys taking days off guys. I take it out on reps guy sitting on the sidelines door mental rep.. I mean look all of this is worth something but don't believe anything thing that you see. Don't believe anything that you'd be just a out and create your own opinion based on each preseason in game is then from that you still can't take much of anything from that so the only time you can start forming a narrative around this football. The team is when the season starts. You know you'll hear stuff. The defense is really fast L.. The defense is getting interceptions early in cab so that means that the deep is going really beginning interceptions in pickoffs and <hes> this stuff and some recovery but it doesn't mean any of that all it means is on random day in July and August Justin lane gotta interception or get pancaked or will be bagging groceries <music> very soon. None of it matters so again to the point like Edgar Allan Poe said Nah apologize using an Edgar Allan Poe reference beacause Edgar Allan Poe is a famous Baltimore Ian and because he poplar is the use of the railing in his. His novels Gus Pittsburgh steelers don't like the Baltimore Ravens but back to his quote. Believe nothing you hear and only half of that you see because it needs to be embellished right. It needs to be that piece of cake with extra icy. Helen needs to be multiple slices. A cake would extra icing because if it's not embellished you're not gonna read it and if you've ever been to training camp I mean I've been a training camp several times. Honestly honestly training camp was boring. It's hot you really don't have an idea of what's going on. It's disjointed you have sessions and drills going on everywhere so it's Kinda Kinda hard to glean what you're watching and what to look for so with that being said you know consume it as you want. I mean the one thing you probably can glean from it that maybe actually truthful that you can really take from would be if a guy is just absolutely terrible. Guys not physical not holding up is not fast. He's dropping a bunch of passes asses so on and so forth didn't whatever more than likely in that situation. It's probably a rookie some and drafted guy that wasn't going and to make the team anyway because that's that's the veiled secret any N._F._l.. that the N._F._l.. Doesn't really like to tell you that treaty camp is essentially just to get guys and in shape it really the workout rookies and trying to help veterans or new veterans that you bring in to get acclimated to the system and trying not to get guys hurt. I mean a preseason for the most part. The last two games in my opinion are useless even the game the third game where guy the first team plays you know I have I mean it's still can't glean anything from it or take anything from it. So you know the most important thing in preseason moving forward during the regular season is staying healthy mean. That's the biggest information you could take from any of these can't reports. It's probably the only thing that's truthful and actually real so our injury. Report of guys are hurt. You can't really fake that that is what you actually see.

What You Need to Know About COVID-19 and Flu

"Presented by the salvation army in a year with fewer red. Kettles helped rescue christmas for the most vulnerable to give ask your smart speaker to make a donation to the salvation army or donate at salvation army. Usa dot org what you need to know about covid nineteen and flew by alice. Park every winter is a bit of a roulette wheel when it comes to influenza flu vaccines work but aren't one hundred percent effective in preventing disease. So it's always a challenge convincing people to get their flu shots and while the symptoms are generally bearable infections can become more severe and even deadly among people who are older or who have underlying health conditions last flu season even though experts considered it a relatively mild year about four hundred thousand people in the. Us were hospitalized and twenty. Two thousand people died from the flu this winter. The influence virus has arrival the corona virus. Fueling the covid. Nineteen pandemic and health officials are anticipating a showdown that could have dire consequences for the health of millions. Both diseases are caused by viruses that spread with abandoned from person to person through sneezes coughs and respiratory droplets during close contact but wile researchers know quite a bit about the influence of iris. The corona virus sars cov two is very much a black box and they can only guess what will happen when the to pathogens collide throughout the world. Here's a rundown of what to expect. And how best to protect yourself this winter. Why is it dangerous to have flu and covid nineteen viruses around at the same time a double whammy of flu and sars cov two infections. This winter could be devastating for public health as the colder weather brings people into closer contact with each other and confined spaces indoors. What i worry about is that both viruses can cause serious respiratory. Illness says dr david chalk sheen health commissioner for new york city and the same way that covid nineteen gets to the point where someone has to be hospitalized to support their breathing or needs to be in the icu with the breathing tube or ventilator unfortunately we see that in the most severe cases of influenza as well what we worry about. Is that happening at the same time and really stressing the capacity of our hospitals public health. Experts are concerned that too many people who are seriously ill with influenza or covid nineteen could flood hospitals and stretch already worn out healthcare workers and health care systems to their limits. What can be done to prevent a dual virus disaster. One of the most important things a person can do to ensure the flu season doesn't turn into a public health. Catastrophe is to get a flu shot. And even though it's still early in the flu season health experts are already urging people to do just that while there are only a few therapies for treating of nineteen. There are drugs and a vaccine that can protect people against infection. Even if they're not perfect the flu vaccine is typically up to fifty percents effective but that fifty percent is better than no protection which is essentially where most of the world's population stands now with respect to covid nineteen for influenza. We have a vaccine is one extra layer of protection for the public that could help reduce cases doctor and peckish co director of the johns hopkins center of excellence for influenza. Research and surveillance said during a recent briefing public health officials are putting extra effort into flu. Shot campaigns this year but those programs have been hampered by the fact that many of their traditional partners and providing flu shots such as employers schools and faith based organizations are shut down or only reaching a limited number of people due to social distancing measures the good news however is that so far some of the signs health officials watch for predicting the severity of a flu. Season are suggesting a lower number of cases this year because the us is winter follows that of the southern hemisphere infectious disease. Experts look to countries like australia south africa and chile for hence about the upcoming flu seasons this year possibly because covid nineteen has caused lockdowns and social contact and lead to more people wearing masks in public cases of influenza. There have been lower than in previous years. They experienced hardly any influenza virus. Activity says dr. Tim yucky chief medical officer at the centers for disease control influenza division. Right now there is low flu activity in the us and while the trends in the other parts of the world bode well there are also some worrying signs and parts of southeast asia and south asia. Some countries are seeing an uptick and influenza cases specifically. They're seeing more of an influenza a virus known as h. three into which tends to cause more severe illness than other flu strains what's unknown is whether the increase in influenza activity in southeast asia will carry over to other countries and what the implications are for the. Us says yucky. Can i get flu and covid. Nineteen at the same time. Yes says there is no question that co infection can occur. We've seen case reports and case series from a number of countries. What's less clear is whether being infected with both influenza and sars covy to maine's people will get less or more sick than those battling just one viral infection and because covid nineteen is such a new disease. It's also too early to tell whether being infected with one virus recovering and then getting infected with the other can affect the course of disease. We don't know what is going to happen to co-infections here in the us. Pickoffs says but there is some data that we are concerned about that. One virus may be causing an environment in the lungs that makes it easier for the other virus to infect. There is much speculation about that right now and it's serious enough for us to pay attention to co-infections and monitor them carefully as we entered the winter season. That's another reason why doctors are especially adamant about asking people to get their flu shots. Since it's possible the viruses may be interacting in ways that could compromise people's health but art widely known yet. How will i know if i have the flu or covid. Nineteen you likely won't and neither will your doctor unless you get tested. The symptoms for both infections are similar enough fever. Cough muscle aches. That only a test will distinguish between the two viruses during most flu. Season's most doctors generally test their patients for influenza since it's almost always the most common respiratory virus making the rounds but this season is different and more doctors may be ordering flu covid nineteen or combination tests to make an accurate diagnosis since isolation and quarantine are particularly important for people infected with covid nineteen to prevent the spread of that disease. The fact that the two viruses together this season means there are much higher stakes for actually making a diagnosis and knowing whether it's influenza or sars covy to says dr jay williams chief medical officer at quest diagnostics. One of the large commercial testing labs in the country indeed many flu tests makers are offering a combination influenza. And sars cov two test that will help doctors to diagnose both viral illnesses with just one swab from a patient's nose or throat and demand for the combo tests is already increasing. Says dr david pursing chief medical and technology officer at cepheid. Another testing lab demand has increased several. Fold from our requests for influenza tests says so much so that the company is focusing more resources on making the dual tests than on producing covid nineteen tests. We can't afford to not be ready for this. Will they flu vaccine protect against covid. Nineteen no flu vaccines and covid. Nineteen vaccines target two different viruses influenza and sars cuvee two respectively each is designed to specifically train the immune system to recognize and launch attacks on its particular virus. Is it dangerous to get both the flu vaccine. And the covid nineteen vaccine. There's no reason to believe that the two vaccines will interact with each other and cause any adverse events but no covid. Nineteen vaccines have been authorized by the us food and drug administration yet although the agency is now reviewing to potential vaccines and will likely make a decision about authorizing them by the end of december authorization however doesn't clear up the remaining unknowns about how exactly the vaccine's triggered the immune system researchers will be following people who participated in the trials of the experimental covid nineteen shots for two years to see among other things how they react to the flu shot until this year's flu season is behind us which won't be until next march or april doctors won't know how well their efforts to urge people to get their flu shots were in controlling not just influenza but covid nineteen as well until then they remind everyone that the same practices can reduce risk of getting infected with both viruses. Washing your hands wearing a mask staying at least six feet away from others. Not in your household and avoiding public gatherings.

116 - BUY THE SKINS!!!!! DO IT!!!!!

"And welcome back for another episode of the Black. Watch report I'm your host Thorn. Rain. With me as always my co Mister Kyle win. Our doing sir. Pretty Good I've literally all I have known in the past couple of days. Is the marvel cinematic universe and sets little all of experienced my friend, and I are. Deep in the middle of a chronological marathon. Awhile of every marvel movie basically at least the since the MCI. Basically. Yeah and we're doing we're trying the chronological way like in when now in the movie cain up took place. Serving like Captain America then went to like. Captain Marvel, which was. Fine moving and we like both iron man's and like now we're GonNa do store next and then avengers after that. Holy. Crap, it is such a fascinating thing like watching them all at once. In order and so like we've been just like Beijing movies, you watch like three alien movies previously and. All sorts of stuff. So it's been fun. What that's literally all been doing I play like a couple of games here and there like not really much else men like. Job Stuff is just on whole everything's just in limbo some Louis like well I'm GonNa Watch movies I don't like I've tried to do everything I could possibly do nothing's happening right now I'm waiting on like a bunch of stuff still like Google. Movies. I feel that. I. Restarted. The whole walking dead from season one and like rewatch all the way up to where I would match up with the season ten finale that was delayed. You walk like nine months seasons in like how long It was like two months or something like that. It was still lot. Like spread out like an doing it while watch like cooking dinner ou doing dishes because. I'm fans here got a TV in the dining room. Yes. I've always felt like doing that like with movies that are shows that you've seen you like we've been playing starts to this on the side as well. Just have like the movie up on the side because. You don't really need to pay attention to either one hundred percent and kind of fly around and not really worry about watching the movie, and then when you have to focus on gaming focused on that and you're like, don't lose it and so like I guess it does work out really well to like. Alternate between one and the other. But like it's was crazy going back and watching something that 'cause I've watched it from the beginning to current the walking dead. Probably three times over the course of the run of the show. I love the show. GonNa Lie I. Think it's a great show. but like this last time I noticed so many little things that like never really clicked in my head. In previous re watches. It's like Okay. That's a little teaser or man. Okay I'M GONNA. I'M NOT GONNA go too deep into it but. Just, if you've ever watched the walking dead, go back. And rewatch season one. and. Think of it in the context of today's. Political and social climate. And Holy Walking on My bed. I'll. Glib. If walking season, one was recorded today like film today that show would have never made it out of season one. It's pretty gnarly the stuff that got through that I. I noticed on this Rewatch and I'm like, wow, i. Don't remember them saying that or wow I don't remember seeing those symbols and like man this is Kinda rough. Yeah. But like. It's It's all in context with everything but like it's one of those things where just how the world has changed I don't think we would have had ten season of the walking dead if they would have done season one. In a climate like we're currently in right now. But the other thing I find funny about those two is like looking back at like all these Zombie movies like. We watched the first three resin evil movies with my friends as well and like watching those on Mike I. Love the I remember thinking in the house like, okay. This would never happen. People are like smarter this and then like looking around now like. Okay I can see it. Yep. Okay. I could definitely see one person getting sick and then it just completely ruining the world. Like of course. So many people around the world that we know that would totally height as Ambi- by Dude, like there's one underlying know immediately like you're the type of person where you get bit and tell no one and he'd like look roll up your sleeve on your own in a corner like look at the bite and get worse and be like I can't tell any. I, know those people now I literally spend my Dave with people like that and it's like If it was ever to get terrible. You're probably the first person that I'm getting the furthest away from. Your going to get me killed because you're an idiot. Like yeah. Just it. It is crazy doing all the re watches and. That's basically all I've been doing. I played a little bit over watch The new Halloween terror is out. I wanted to do that I've not played it like two weeks but I've wanted to because the man is in a great spot and like the new stuff came out and I literally logged in to make sure I got the Ganji Skin and then equipped that and then just like waiting to do more beyond that. Yeah speaking of the that they're Ganji skin segue. Yea. Didn't even think about we plan that. No, we didn't We're GONNA roll down into the news news brought by Patriots head over to Patriot DOT COM by watch. Ford. Signed with two daughters level you can sponsor the news. This week's sponsor is thuggery. Thank you so much Sir Kyle take us away and elaborate a little bit more on that they're Ganji skin you got. To quotes directly to the tweet works cited to unveil the contenders. Viewership rewards program through the month of October. You can earn contender skin for symmetric and mercy by supporting tier to find out in our announcement below, and then you open the announcement. It basically says, you will receive stuff contender skins `home-and-away, symmetric skins after enjoying seven hours of live contenders, content and fifteen hours. A home and away skins for. Fifteen hours. For the mercy skin. And of the month. They get reset you get a free Ganji skin when you log in. To support it but you need to I, think watch through the contenders website is the things are similar overwatch contenders dot com similar watching over league dot com for our skins, which I never did and also I never watched contenders live by always watch it after the fact because it just never works out with my schedule like watching contenders because it's like. Who in the morning and I don't like I love to your to our watch every minute of all those games. But I'm not gonNA stay up and watch him live I'm sorry. Yeah that's my It took me it took me weeks to reset my sleep schedule from going to bed at five, six, seven, eight in the morning. Don't want to go back and do that again. I want lucky enough to throw the. The second the what is it the semi finals of on my phone at work and just hide my phone and So hopefully, I got a couple of hours not. It'll be a little bit easier when. A happens because if anything. I've got like three laptops. I'll thrown up on one of the laptops and just let it run while I'm doing something else I need to do that. He didn't like. The occasional times when I leave my pc on at night like updating something or download something, I should do that. I should leave it up and watch contenders on there because like I, really like I don't play mercy or symmetric ever come about the Green Ganji every so often but like I know. The it's unfortunate that like you can't do you can't like get tokens and spend tokens or use existing tokens or whatever I thought. It'd be cool. Already changed you the also get a little icon to a player I which I. Support I wish. I wish you could buy the Black Watch one, but I legitimately can't and Mike Not Gotten and luke boxes after like hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of hours in the game so. Of Lucky. That being something that we've literally asked twice when we've had Dan on. Finally. Happening now, we just need to talk them into. You know like the champions of each contenders you should give them just like. A player icon in the game or like a spray, you don't get to do skins like let me put up element element mystic spray and rock a tier to Dan Player CLAIRAC. On out. That's all I want. To pay for those, you don't have to make me watch I'd I'd buy those. In other bits of incredibly Awesome news finally, like it's another case of like the world has been asking for this for literally years. Now NUKII has gotten called up to GM the Linens Spitfire after G. M. ING the British hurricane for I. Swear like three years ever. It seems like and also being the manager of those guys before that. I think she's basically just been like literally. Just doing the every bit of work that you possibly could in the territory seen for e you since like the very very beginning jamming for like Germany and she's also the GM of the Valentim for Claudine as well like Oh crap. Having three eighteen student she's been with the cane since February of two, thousand eighteen. So. Literally. Virgin seemed like. But. That also speaks to what we speculated as well of the t moving away from a full crane roster they let go at least they moved I think Robin was previously the GM of the Spitfire Who hailed the Korean player part of it? Now, that we have a e GM, it leads reason to believe that they're going to have an e u base team as well after literally all of the things pointing in that direction and. I believe she literally said it herself on a podcast. Moving thirds any of your team and so like. Okay. All works out. Yeah. When when that went live on Youtube I fired it up at. and was listening to it, and she essentially said that they were going full western. The whole team, they're going to try to get a lot of EU talent try to. Engage, with the community more and. What was it? The coaching staff and management staff would be getting announced in the next like weaker or two. So, like we'll probably looking at seeing some London Spitfire management in. Coaching announcements here real soon, I feel like. They can call up players at any point I think still. or No I don't. Know only to cut out a weren't and they weren't who wade. Oh, no yeah and Like, I don't think there because there was a huge loophole last season, the season before I think it was last season the firm People Paula yeah, the flute fusions loophole we just call up to your Kademi. You're like, sign him to Your Academy team than call that the immediately like just walking around like that was just A. Oversight Don part. But now I don't think they have that which makes sense and I'm cool with that I guess so yeah and basically. Happens with that. Basically all of the hurricane players have put up like I in. Yeah. The slot as the unofficial symbol of now joining the Lenin Spitfire. Yeah. That's the way it very much seems because everyone of them has done it and It's are we saw the elderly? F? Including coach Fisher as well. So was interesting I mean you got fishers lb in as well. they could grab visibility like there's. Got There's a lot been talent that they could pull man and I'm excited and building up the the most wanted list man next episode we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA be bringing out the most wanted list. Lots and lots of options and even still like considering how many players are dropped do. I needed to pull up that list as well and see how many like if I could build I would build like five different teams five different ways entirely Oh. Yes. E Post it out a picture of. A spreadsheet of. Every single one. Holy Crap. Oh. Don't even get me started on the nonsense that tweet. Well. The whole scenario started because. There's all kinds of crazy people around. Really freaking out about it like people don't understand like, okay. We broke it down lest episode but like we understand not ever listened to the podcast is read. The sheet, you can't like just. You're just going to draw players going to sign a lot of players and there'll be lots of people going down to tier two at another thing that will be talking about next week is how many players were not having a good time and Overwatch League. Down to contenders found themselves rediscovered their skills came back up to the top and are now doing incredibly well. A lot of my list. Of especially Korean players were like ask I. Didn't really have too much of a performance on. On this Overwatch League team that overall never started this that the other thing had a quick career got screwed by goats look at now like crushing it. Like. All I'm thirty seven. stellar. The former main tank of Toronto defiance. So many. Marked as well like there's so many people who just. It, it's just the way it goes dude like unless you are a top level player, sometimes you get kicked out of the minor sometimes you kicked out of the D. League you know like What's his Alex Cruiser from the from the Lakers started in the playoffs was D. League player in previous seasons like you go you go up and you go down and you develop yourself and go back up to the top lake. Breathe people we've got literally two months until teams have to be locked in and half of these teams are. Severely under the limit like we know that Dallas is rebuild and know that London is rebuilding. We know that Houston has to rebuild. I I would I would hope Boston rape. There's so many different teams. Globally, changing our gladiators rid land has doing some you know not full rebuild but. If shifting out some pieces look. There's a lot of stuff happening. Don't don't sell your jerseys. Just, yet hang on take a breather. We'll got a lot of time ahead of us. There's a lot of negotiations happening. It's going to be very interesting over the next two months to see how all of the new free agents end up going because some of those free agents you can just about guarantee aren't coming back to the league. There's a lot of those free agents that I expect to be back in the league. There's a, there's also a great game for a lot of these people to move onto. You got uncle you got akm you got trill all look into you just saw cya player get signed renamed to t one. There's options for these people elsewhere but also there are a lot of games going back to League. Be Shoes going into coaching. Goose's out. There's a lot of. Options for layers beyond this to see. Where everybody is going and how quickly some of those moves are having. Yeah and then it just it opens up for all of these players that were currently talking about in contenders to slot into all of those spots because there's only a certain amount of. Roster spots on a certain amount of teams. I don't see US getting new teams. So it's not like we're gonNA see like the beginning of. Two thousand. Nine hundred season where we saw a bunch of tier two players get picked up. This is GonNa be the only way we're GONNA. See that happening is with a lot of these free agents not coming back to the League it's and. It's going to happen every year from this point on. Especially, to because you've got now tape on these here to players, you've got tape on I'm thirty, seven and stellar and assassin and. A D. cod and ice. You've got information on them. You've got performances to based off of. A lot of these dropped players didn't really play much like I. Don't remember when I saw fire play I. Don't think he played at all I don't remember seeing. Equal. Played like three maps. Jarrah got replaced pretty quickly like there's a lot of these players that like okay. You gotta go back down you got gotTA grind it out a little bit maybe a different team maybe bite the Boston bullet. And, line the fifty K. deal and to be completely honest with the new. Roster two way player structure that we've seen There's a good chance that we see a lot of these players get picked up and then get out to contenders teams to keep warm which I'm completely fine with seeing yet. They're still collecting a paycheck. There's a lot of players that are really good like you've got I like links or like I think links or maybe give him like. You play in tier two here and there and bring them up and Overwatch League when you need them for a couple of games of the Meta's right for you do that and call him up for a month or two and send them back. You've got these options of players that are like really good but maybe not. One hundred percent playtime bubble that you can do that with your But we have been in changed for ten fifteen minutes. I was just going to back in to finish out this news here the British hurricane. Rumors send us on a huge movement. Tangent but. A move that no one really saw coming because no one at team DOJ has announced anything on what they're doing. There's been hiding just been hiding Naga moving over to obey alliance plane over an e U if I'm not mistaken, he's like. Or something. is done dead. Danish Green It was an issue I was close. Very close. But. Congratulations obey lines has been doing pretty good if I'm not mistaken over there Not. Wait no on the wrong thing. I think like with PD and a hot minute. I've talked to middle of the road second third. They got their. Teams. Disqualified discount qualified. Fried. Chicken Teriyaki. The. disqualified. Dang. ABC. regionals. Oh Man I can't speak today. But yeah. I mean second second third fifth sixth in all Major. So they're not doing too bad. Formerly Raspberry Racers so We know that they raspberry Danish joke now makes even more sense Graduate Raspberry Danish? That's delicious. Cream cheese. But that's it for the news not a whole lot of news. Until we hit the official free agency signing window, which I think is. A week week and a half hours from. Mistaken. I lost the document I need to find it again, we're players can actually be signed. Everything's kind of quiet right now. And we're we're still in the process of getting ready for. The next trials which the. Yellow Hill Tournament of champions is going on if I'm not mistaken right now they're in like. I think the round of sixteen. I. Think it is. I got I. got the dates up again. The Free Agency window is closing. A twenty third. On the twenty four, th free agents signings begin. So we've got Saturday starting Saturday. We're GONNA start seeing stuff happening. and then options a need to be. Had or not had by November thirteenth. So the option. So we've got a lot of free. I think most of the which is good. It's like it's where we're starting to see GM's actually doing well by their players and releasing them early early enough to where they have plenty of time. We're not seeing people at least it seems like they're still a couple of teams that could do it. Hold onto players until after the opportunity has. Come and gone. You know the still the complete opposite of the. Conspiracy. Theories that teams are letting go of all their players to save six months of salary. That's not how that works contracts don't. Stop putting that out there. That's a lie. Yeah. Listen to the people who were like agents and people who have been around the scene and the scene for a long time like I. Recognize the fact that I am not well read on Overwatch League contracts to defer to those that are. Listens to the agents and GM's who've obviously. Take all the agents, perspective, all the GM's projectors because they're kind of on opposite. Sides. Do. Take information, combine it together take different sources. Educate yourselves an unusual understand how things go and don't do what people do or they like go down to the most voted opinions on reddit letter like down voted into absolute obscurity because like if you're minus one hundred, Karma they just hide the post because no one wants to read anyways and they're like look at this absolutely ridiculous opinion. I'm GonNa read it no. Leave them down there. Don't bring them back up. Those are dead narratives, leave the grave. Down voted into the ground for a reason. Don't give them the time of day they're wrong. And also be smart look for the check marks when you get before, you get baited by a fake release announced, but there was a funny one of WHO has it been? Boeing Funny Astro getting released jokingly always look for the check marks the check the blink one got me for. Yeah, and then I was like Oh. This is too good. and. Then for I could post it to try to bait people we had someone in the discord. Post it and then get so angry that blink was resigned and it's like. It's fake bro calm down. Check your check marks. But We're not quite to the point where we're. Like fully rumor milling signings and everything just yet. So let's jump down into the quick play. We did watch the matches this week we add current Contenders Korea. Finishing up the quarterfinals and the semi finals the Grand Finals will be later this week I believe it's like soon, tm Thursday morning something like that. There's out morning. Right nearly like seven am for me twenty second at three. AM my time. Well, so no. Morning. Off. Hopefully, I'm not around my supervisor so I can watch it on my phone long working. But. Let's dive into our predictions for I guess we'll do predictions and then matches them predictions and matches will go in order here. So first match. We both got right. Yep Yep whoop do. We knew that team B M was not up to the task against Wgn Phoenix, and that's what happened. W just think took the three one against them I. Actually yet the three one which is actually kind of surprising because. Outside of an absolute banger that will talk about a little bit later this was the only other one that didn't go three Oh. Team. VM being able to squeak out that one map made it interesting for all of seven minutes and then. wgn Phoenix was like Nah. We're We're. Shutting you down. Yep and that one map was Lee. Shang where we saw Sung Chan gets some key hacks onto as tax on the. Road at least twice I think. You kinda tried his best to. Negate as tech but as we talk about here in the next couple of matches. Stack is shown to be really solid like you had like I think one match that we watched last week or two weeks ago where I felt when it was from. But like there was some issues dying on Bussan but beyond that, especially in these playoffs matches really leveled up. So that team tried their best to try to counter him and they did on the first map but beyond that w kind of took off and really the only other thing that I noticed outside of that. They were playing real chaotic, not super super structured. Just looked discombobulated, and then you get over to a new business and protect literally holds onto his grab for like foil. Yes and it's like there was there was a bunch of times where he could have used it. Either defensively to save some of his teammates and extend the team fight or initiate with an potentially win team fight and Nope, he just sat on it and then when he did use it, he threw it to lake. Horizon Lunar Colony I think because it just went nowhere got nothing and then they just got absolutely destroyed. Yup Listen to Wayne Gretzky protect you miss one hundred percent of the grabs you don't take so. You just gotTa. Do It man you just got? To. It's also a Hawker reference or an office reference depending on what what realm of the world you're in. The other thing too is like every minute that you're not using a graph building. You're not building graph and like if you hold a grab for like three minutes, you could've used a grab that it was like okay and then had another grab by basically the same time So. Yeah it's it's tough and like if you don't have the opportunity to use a grab at all because they're diva is constantly all over you and you don't have the counterplay or they're playing way to spread, then you probably should go on something else. That's better. Pick anyways and use the grab throwaway goldfish swimming dvr, go switch Sigmar anything else. There there's been a lot of issues that we're seeing a lot of the losing teams. They're. They're just like kind of shooting themselves in the foot with like playing what they should be. On the other side man wgn. Phoenix Lake after watching this match. I got really high on this tangle. Especially, ABC Z. Bag has been. Okay. But Gables specially was. Studer Pitt where you saw pack jump up, get damage onto. The Echo over the ACA was even. On. Haven, yeah then. He drops down back behind the cover again, and then you saw gable see right behind him come up boost up finish off the damage and then go back and then Win So comes up to resum they both dive a again and kill him as well. They open it up with two free kills and literally just roll beyond that. So I think that like one of the things especially it's been the tank line coordination for this team. In another team, we'll talk about later. Like it really sets these teams up apart like with the DP s with the one diver as well with the tanks in the one dive deep. Yes as well like. If, you have three people hive minded together you you will find success in grin contenders. And then another name on wgn that you're going to hear. US Talk. A lot absolute tyrant about is ace. When ace is on? The Sambre. Do builds EMP's insanely quick. But then on a newbies, they push team B.. M. Back to the spawn. And then they're like, you know what we got like a minute and a half left we're just going to go sit in front of the spun. And s just sits behind him and mainly heck's the supports like one clip supports drops an EMP. Like gets half of the team just absolutely bullying the back line of Team B, m on a newness and. Team B. M. had no response to ACE's play when he was running the sombre. and. It's super unfortunate that like he's only played this one pick at least what I've seen so far Inoke s on the hog. So good is unmatched in cream contenders I think I, think he might. Only, backed by MAG. But we'll see about that. Hit like he just every time like he forces other people to not play against him because he will just out a out mechanics them out strategy them and like just knows how to play better gets incredible. Pickoffs especially on Havana you saw him on the hog and Gable soon, the sigma they full hold team b. m., there as well So, like this tank line. Alternating CPAC and iino cast depending on whether or not. They're gonNA play the Winston saw shrine oranges run the Road Hog quite often because I think this was still on the playoff patch or like the wwl. Finals Patch. It'll. It's as strong three players on that team like they. Really. Really benefited from there, strong line here and gables the again like we talked about his diva being incredible signals also incredible as well during the scrappy last minute fights where there was a chance that team b. m. was going to be able to. Squeak out the first point actually cap it. he just stayed alive sustained had some good old good rocks Just good play and I think got like a couple of kills here there's also. You're going to start seeing a couple of these names come up next week when we talk not only about Plants and stuff like that but also on recommended. Pickups for teams in the off season because. Couple of teams might be going full Korean here and. There's a lot of new blood that's rear and to get some Odell time in. So I'm excited to see that I actually can't wait to talk about that team that I think is going full Korean 'cause. It's GONNA be interesting to try to put together. A bunch of players out of Korean contenders to slot into that team or and see how close we can get to actually hitting the. the mark on how many people get pulled from creon contenders. We did pretty good last year last year, we had a pretty good success rate on the people that we were calling to getting. Called up into words league. And Yeah on a slight aside to it seems like this season may be really. Crean. Then e you biased not a bad way but like there's just not as much any towns wrestle I, feel a lot of cream players be picked up from tier to. and. I don't know maybe five or six. I'm feeling from the most and you know obviously you're GonNa see lots going to lens but fire for e you as well. So should be interesting to see. So. Next match-up we've got runaway verses Oh to blast Kyle took runaway I took oh two and I got. stomped I believed I I. Had all my faith in Oh to blessed man I I I put the money down. And they stole it from me. They walked away with my money -cause runaway take this three. Oh. And like it wasn't even like a close exciting three Oh like there was a there was a moment. I think Bussan where like it could have went either way and then after that, it was just like a snooze fest runaway ran away. Yet Nubani did go a little bit more interesting I think they went five four. So they both got extra rounds and then it was just a good hold but like On the side of Oh to proper on the widow looked really solid but at the same point. MAG was just. All over him dude like. All throughout Bussan was just kind of. Making his case to destroy who was GONNA be the most impactful not blast. Playing the hog on mecca-based shut down the tanks I, think there are running the Winston quite a bit with. Who is Oh, Yuck punk, that's who I was talking about previously as well. yachtsman was playing the Winston quite a bit and just getting destroyed and then win proper was Kinda gets good pickoffs and you know they're getting a couple percentage winding up on downtown. Magazon the Winston was just like I'm GonNa die of all the way across the map and make this person who would might be able to carry their team essentially useless and he did just that. And on the flip side. When we got to noon Bonnie, in the final map, they like tried to do what they could they like. Really hard focused meg. And they got the first pick. But like when you have six people looking at your main tangle, you maintain a very good job at distracting and tanking because then you had, you know still the fight was won by runaway because you had six people focus on one person. Meanwhile, you've got five other people focus on those other people who are not paying attention so. Really smart play from runaway and really sparked play for MAG. Mag another name you will hear me talk about a lot. And then oh I have one last note calicoes on the end of Neum Bonnie as well. Was Pretty big. He had like a pretty big to kill bombed to kind of allow them to cap out. But beyond that, there's not a whole lot of amazing things we saw from Kelley us at the moment. And Pelican. Like I went back in re watched that because something was a little bit. Positioning. The two K. was the mercy and the Hog. The Hog was way up front. The mercy was back if you're looking from spawn on Nubani point be. There's like that room off to the left hand side that has an upstairs. Point. See you mean. The. Tree in snuff. Yeah The. The mercy. Who is that Chiyo I believe? Chiyo was actually up in that room, but Pelican through a manual hack onto revenge which. drew the focus of. Your and she hotwheel Aria. y'All was behind the that little ledge just enough. But she was like flying over to Revenge, to like help protect. Do not. Right into the line of sight of the bomb so had Had Pelican not pulled off the manual? Heck. That fight could have went a different way because then Chia would have been able to get the res- on onto. Mag because MAG was playing the. The road. Hog At that point. So it was one of those where they combined. Helical was on that deep flank literally standing almost in their spawn as the bomb went up. So once they started to focus on where the bomb was he was able to get the manual hack off and Kinda set off those. Those dominoes to to get it into point see. Didn't get them anything past that but made it exciting. And then before that, we did get a I hold on Viscaya. Both, Magon all both at separate opportunities. Just, made huge plays on different sides in different fights to bail to secure the first Holt and then on the flip side. You got a note here. Literally. Walk onto the point they only need a third and no one on runaway die. They just literally bullied their way onto the point. Started, getting picks and then just stood in the middle of the point and won it in a matter of like a minute like they had. Really. Good positioning there they were playing. To was playing kind of in the mega room above the mega room and then they gave. The sniper player for runaway. Probably Merit. They let him kind of take the opposite platform which was on. The left side. Yeah. Like they the runway pushed him to that perspective and gave him like the lineup on everyone there, and then meanwhile the tanks were suppressing there and then you had like two or three people contesting the point forcing someone to fly across and leave the happy room. And they got rolled. So runaways, just really next level here kind of just dismantled though to blast. But let's move into the the next one which we both miss predicted. But to be fair, it of came down to one fight it was and that was element mystic wgn Phoenix here. Elton lost in the two three and it went third point final fight hundred, ninety nine. In favor of Wfan's we both had ellen mystic predicted and it blows. So close and I'm honestly fine with how it went. Debbie Phoenix is kind of A. Work in a way into two more my favorite teams at the moment. I have three notes in a row for wgn Phoenix of the same person Yup. So Talked about earlier Yup Yup Kellen on mystic is playing the wrecking ball on. Basan an ace on the somber and makes his life. Miserable. At every point in time he's hacked he's destroyed. Basically completely useless. On Basan. A. On. Hundred Mora you have ace and INA cast locked down the second defense. As on the hands of this time, you know cast on his I guess mainstay hog now. Look super good as well. And then Nubani Ason Valentine prevent would've been a really rough stall on. I basically I think after I. Didn't they? Yeah until the very very end just as and Valentine doing credible things. These two players, main ws Phoenix like we saw from. Elton mystic runaway. No. was. It also w just has three tanks. Yes. So they've got three DP s that they can rotate out and three tanks that they can rotate out based off a specialty and they do so well because you've got, I'm thirty seven to play whatever you need like a straight up sniper character. meanwhile, you've got ace who's kind of the Sambre special just, but also can play a lot of the other hit scans like the ash if needed, and then you've got Valentine just play. All of the projectile or the reaper if you're doing the. I guess reaper or tracer if you have a sniper that aside too. So you've got lots and lots and lots of options here for Zepa same with the tanks as well. You know cast in when you run on the Hog, you get a z bag during the the Winston Gables he just stays in because he's that good. Really. Good play from them. As. Well. Out here, and then on the the flip side of that. Like crazy attack that they had. Ace again building EMP's essentially every other fight getting it like usually towards the end of the second team fight going into the third team fight. And all of them. Huge value. We're talking between four and six man hacks and when ace lands a huge emp. The whole team especially, Valentine Valentine will pick one of the easier targets and just Hard focus. Getting an early pick on one of the supports or one of the tanks usually, and then from there the rest of the team. Mattingly, take down one after another A lot of this matchup on Nubani came down to aces. Just. Absolutely shutting down element mystics attacks like element mystic would start to get the payload rolling and then it they would get impede and push off of the payload, and then by the time they were able to take the payload back and get it moving as head another emp, and we just started the cycle all over again so. Ace's one of those names man you're just gonNA constantly hear US talking about when Wgn is playing and potentially I don't even know if he's eligible I believe. So I think he's on list yes he is. He is nineteen actually getting ready to turn twenty here in. Six days of in days. So ru quick I did want to go through the map because I I wanted to try to keep my notes with map but did not do that so they start off Bussan to one. In favor of. PHOENIX. that's where we saw ace with the Sambre. Really making life not fun on the wrecking ball hunt Amora. I mentioned that you've got great play from ace cast to lock down the second point defense not lay out mick, those two points but on the flip side. You have. Out Mystic. Old W jess on I partially in Callan who was trying to go against the wrecking. Up a on the hog one V one was just GonNa win it as we mentioned before like cast just the hog, but he swaps to the ball. does some good disruption and then you have a note as well on how El were kind of able to make this full hold happen. Yeah. Three They're down. WHO's the other tank for element mystic or actually it might have been. Kellen. Know who is running the? Attack, from us, I believe I think it was attack that was was down. wgn PHOENIX. Gets. A pick onto attack. Tax Waiting on the respond. So instead of It they traded one for one but with the close response, wgn Phoenix could have pushed. The the five or five very easily and. Had a chance, but m three POPs his Bob. Kind of suspects when you first look at it, but he puts it right into the first point choke. Essentially, putting a tank in the doorway preventing wgn Phoenix from advancing because every time, they would poke or try to take the door. Bob, would just lay into them and they were down a person. So wgn Phoenix wasn't able to get past it and by the time the Bob was done attack was back with the group everybody was at full strength and they literally couldn't do anything. So just a great heads up play from M M m three using the BOB as a secondary tank instead of a point presence like you would typically see the Bob used. Yeah and then Nubani as I mentioned wgn can I got stalled out on I almost got full held there than we're able to squeak it out and then basically went. On a roll after that and they're able to hold out mystic on second before they capped out. Second. I'm giving them the three one watch point Gibraltar was. This is probably one of my favorite maps we've seen thus far. You've got on one hand. Gable, see has an incredible match. You see some great plays I think from ace on the Honda with I. Think I am thirty seven years well on the snipers. Gable seats different. Dragon. Strikes on Gibraltar and then every time that I think cal and tried to get a big hook he was able to to in and absorb a lot of the damage with the Defense Matrix really smart play there. But on the flip side, do he saying on the hunter to start and then the tracer after that was basically just on a hair it makes me so mad this kid is he looks like he's like nine dude he looked so he's fifteen but the dude looks super young and he's just like one of those players it's just going to be. Literally stuck in Tier Two for three more years despite being. Filthy traced player could probably. I feel like he could be maybe like top five top. Six Seven Overwatch League if he got called up right now but he can't. So let's not even bothered that compare some basically he just goes on an absolute tear here man is incredible. Speaking of piecing. Now. I've got to take this all the way back to mecca-based 'cause. This is one of those things where literally nothing came of it. No one died. It really didn't matter. Because If I'm not mistaken mystic was already well on their way to taking the point. So faith leaving. The duel with he saying wouldn't have helped one way or the other really had no effect on it. Watching. He saying on tracer faith on Lucio. Where in Mecca base. The little pathway that goes down and then up. It goes from spawn down and then up onto the point. and. There's a pillar in the middle of the walkway and then it's open environmental death on either. Faith is wall writing underneath the bridge up over top. boobs he sang off like twice he's saying blinks recalls back on these two are just going at it in this room literally unable to kill each other for like thirty seconds. And then they just both partways and go there opposite ways it's one of the. Most coming sack. Our intense. I'm like he got the boop no three call Oh my God. He's got him down to ten health and then he would wall right underneath He would ambitious health backup come back up and it was just nonstop just a dual for the ages. SUPERFUND. Nothing important. Completely completely pointless but it was one of. Most Fun. One V ones I've watched in contenders were these dudes were just beaten each other to death and then just said. All right. We'll go back to our respective corners and match up in the next team point. Yeah, just WANNA throw it out there because it was one of those little things that happen that it's just it's fun to watch. Yup, and then on a kind of final note here, let's see watch brelzer goes out mystics way they're able to hold wgn before the very end and cap it out leasing tower. One one final map goes to gardens. Final fight to lot of back and forth. One, hundred, ninety, nine. Z bag was Kinda we didn't mention him throughout the whole map Kinda wasn't earth threat. The whole match didn't really have any big plays except right the final fight he gets to keep pickoffs and I mean, obviously, it's not just him by himself with the team but he was the one who is kind of there and sustained out throughout the fight stayed alive got the kills. And it was able to be one of main reasons that they finished I. Think after the match was over, you saw everyone run up to him and hug him because they knew he like. Had the performance needed to have at that particular moment and then. Throughout LIZHENG WE'RE GONNA go back to faith here Faith was just quietly closing out kills. The. Team would get somebody down to. Ten fifteen percent health and faith with just wall right his way around and close out the foot or close out to kill as the person was trying to get away a lot of really good boobs for displacements. If I'm not mistaken, he got think two or three where. A player was. Starting to get away and he? Wall road around to get in front of them and boop them back into his teammates to close out the kill. So not anything like super crazy was just those. He saw the openings and was able to swing that portion of the fight in his team's favour favor either by hunting down somebody low health or preventing somebody from getting away Just. Really good heads up play from faith coming in for wgn on. Zhang here. And then final match watch this one this morning. This was a bit of a weird one. We both had Talon winning this and. Really kind of felt like it was just one thing the whole time. And I'm going to start off by saying I. Literally Have One note. because. The one you covered everything runaway. I had nothing that I could really say about talent. And this was a huge disappointment because I expected so much more out of talent regardless of who they were gonna up against I thought talent was going to. Be In the finals and Not even remotely close. Especially, like the major issue that we saw was they ran sambre reaper basically the entire time and I I think talent was the only team. That like basically refused to change anything, we saw every other team either switch players or switch. At multiple portions throughout their matches and Tallon literally set on one thing and got dominated. What was wild is they swapped Aaron feather and they've literally had them play the same here of the entire time. It didn't make a ton of sense and like the Castro even mentioned like I think era was particularly adept at the sniper heroes the the widow the. Honcho and the. The ashes well, stellar they in mentioned is a good trainer. I hadn't seen his tracer before that I mean we know women overwrought. So you didn't play too much to not, but they said it was good but we didn't get to see and if they can when we watched the matches last week or the week before and we watch that talent match, we both had notes on Arrow looking good on. The bench and the widow. And we didn't get it at all. nope. Let's get the PAS I guess Barry mentioned the second bit. The first bit here swim does have some good moments on the Zen especially like him individually was fine. I. Don't think he needed to do anything really differently is just the whole team and like I guess he's part of the team so he needs to do something differently but like His individual performances really strong. A lot of entry kills as. Also really smart play with his transcendence like. Did use it in fights he didn't have to end the opportunity was necessary. He took it and did what needed to do and I think there's a lot of times when you can kind of scare than Yada to using his transcendence. Inopportune Times like if you've got a dragon blade up, you can do something else to force it out the now you don't have anything against the Dragon Blade. But he was pretty smart like not an issue trigger finger or anything like that. Use It exactly what I needed to through a lot of this but main on the other side of this. you've got I mean. Nepal was pretty close back and forth. There was opportunities. They had some different looks here and there. Runway brought out the May with the. Ryan. Sorry. I think it was played super smart there. talented like one minor misstep on the final fight on village and railway punish them. Chiyo, had beat saved up ready to go for the perfect opportunity to seal the map out. I mentioned in the past with I think it was ace and then the tank line. Of W Phoenix, you see that again here with assassin Wulan MAG on a new best dude they are. To a T. like landing on some at the exact same time. Just, bursting people who was got like completely destroyed instantly, I might have been so wrong. On the mercy who just got like caught out and destroyed at every point in turn and. Then that was how they full held on a new bus and then on. Nubani Body did they fooled that too? Yes. They full held in. Held Him Bonnie because on the defense you had assassin on the bench she basically almost this entire map or match played it on all the time under nervous all the time on Nubani most of Nepal as well. And he killed tray wrong at least twice in a row. Including once when he had beat and was going to would have been the final fight those like thirty seconds left he goes through the lower left room if you're the attackers. I think it's the mega room there and assassinate. Hello I'm to kill you now kills him and yesterday be back at the last second to build a try to hit beaten by that point the team already gone already lost people just assassin was really In the Castro said about say like. was playing like you. Of. Like this was on the previous Ganji Patrick. You wouldn't have believed that edgy of recently I'd like a significant nerve big buff happened. He was just really on a tear. He was just a straight bully. On Ganji and the thing is like. We saw Ganji on a couple other teams played on a couple of different maps here and there but like assassin essentially lived on the Ganji and got full value at all times his Gandhi like. There's no reason for it like he lived in the back line of talent had no issues shutting down the DPS of talent and then? smarten. Engagements and disengagements key new when okay. I'm not going to be able to take this fight. I'm just going to back out and not feed all charge to talent. Assassin is. Absolutely. When it comes to the I believe assess interns. He's a I think in January. Yeah. January seven sober four even matches start. He's assigning availability. So there's a lot of great town. Unfortunately, all of L. Mystic are too young minus list support line. Ncaa J. M. C. D. are both eligible but like he sang way Auschwitz Salon. M Three I think callan attack alway too young. I mean the all does really new team only. MC. D is the same player from last season. everyone else was mostly called up from like their academy team and from other tiny nobody team so. there's still room for Mr to of come up. This is like their first big match in a hot minute. So. I mean with this roster. So there's lots of they got a lot of road ahead of them here. Meanwhile, WBZ's Phoenix. A lot of the players are eligible run away. A lot of the players are eligible. To, see a lot of shuffle or a mix up with Jesus and run away going into this next season. Yeah. I would love to see some of these maybe kept together because I mean like. The coordination that some of these players have specifically like Wgn S. and then run as well like if you can get a Sassan plus tank line dude who? Dive Dive Meta you're good like you're just chilling. Like. There's so many opportunities for big performances there I'm like really right see what happens. The WGN tagline if you can pick them up in any, really any of the combinations I guess is going to mourn so. Depend on how road hog. Progressive. That's the problem. I really want to have a big like Recommendation for Ino cast but like. I mean, we're not. We might not see it at all and Lake Road specialists like maybe he's got the other picks. We've seen a long time. But like definitely To City and Keeping those two together. Yeah I mean I think gable see might be able to. Go on his own. Jack is like fine. He's a pretty good I think. But think there's still better options I. think There's a lot of rush league. Current main tanks could do well with having able see that that support tank spot. Helping him out I think yeah. There's a lot of opportunities here for some pretty big pickups began. We'll get into that a lot more next weekend 'cause we only have the finals to cover but. It's definitely looking like it's GonNa. BE A. A A Korean. EU heavy. season. From everything that we've looked at. But I. think that's a show Kyle. Who? Right at the hour? Mark. Talked about basically everything. Not a whole lot of news going on I will. Say. Friend had mentioned possibly putting together another faulk. And the FCC FOMC FRANCIS COMMUNICA Yup knock that one not. which she got a response from. John Specter. Yelping is his name Jonathan. that. Help them to help out and do whatever they could you know working together on. We might get a pretty legit S- like Overwatch, league sponsored tier two tier three. Tournament in the offseason with like. Professor she said why you're doing one limit which I really smart like having one audio player because like I like we saw previously, that's how you get. The big is on the sea. Now because their owners you who Dante's playing, well, I wanNA see who saw in such as playing with I would love to see it be like a crazy format. It's sixteen teams. Sixteen Overwatch League pros one per team and they draft out their team. Here, it'd be fun airs. The week before the tournament, you do like a live draft like pre. Tournament show probably wouldn't work because I think like most of these are made on twitter like the week but like the day before I mean. It with available and stuff like that. That's love to tell you. Landing Yeah But it would be amazing to watch and then he would be like okay. Team Joe neck versus. Team. tag-team daunted of like, yeah, and then see which team comes out on top. And the amount of is that that would draw because then the teams would be tied directly to these Overwatch League pros. I don't know like I doubt it's going to happen that way but I would love to see a tournament put together in that fashion. Likes even if it was a limited pool like pick a bunch of like. The League or or whoever puts on the tournament. Picks. Like. Fifteen teams, and then the Overwatch League pros get to pull from those I don't know. Just something new something different and exciting that could potentially be used as a scouting report I. Guess would be pretty awesome but. Think that's going to wrap it up. Kyle. We're GONNA, find you on the Internet when you're not watching. Marvel movies right now. You can find me on twitter at Kyle the winner for right now. we'll see what happens with the world and. tweets stuff, and maybe as the player announcements coming on, I'll start giving some quick takes on players and whether that's going to be a big pickup or there's better options available or whatever.

Second-Listen Saturday: The Competitive Sport of Raising Kids

"Welcome, to second listen Saturday on parenting roundabout podcast where we share some fun moments past episode for your weekend. Listening pleasure look for new episodes every Monday through Friday. When's the last time you beat out another parent in the competitive sport of raising kids Nicole. Yes well thank you for humoring me this week and going along with this topic because I feel like I am losing. Sport of parenting. But at the same time I. Feel like I'm I'm sticking to my. Values and beliefs Anaheim, not willing to do what some parents. Right now. And I thought it would get easier as the kids got older. Maybe with my son you know I can't didn't really know what I was doing kind of naive an oblivious tall stuff going around not so much the daughter. As we discussed last week it's a little different services on we talked about last week. She's going into her junior year in high school. This is the year of setting themselves up for university. So they say. and. Wow, let me tell you the parents are just as competitive as the. That is not good. No, it's not good especially when. Parents who are doing some really shady things and you know competition. I don't mind if it's healthy. This is so unhealthy I'll tell you sort of in a roundabout way what had happened this possibly because. Nobody will be able to. Labor Day. I'll try and be as vegas possible. Names have been changed. Yeah. Hopefully. Certain names do not listen to this podcast. I think that's a pretty good bet. So so as. You know as we're familiar with, has we`ve Been No. Somebody has been to. Post Secondary. Schools in. Your application needs to feel a little polished and on top of the grades they expect a certain amount of community. Contributions and. You know numerous things just to round you out as a person, right? Sure and kind of you know. So anyway. The grades you know that's one thing But Wow, the. Volunteering and the community service. I'm just Florida the extent that people will go to to. To boost this on their applications so My daughter volunteers for community organization. And she was and so it's just you know the the students who are in it. They're the ones that do the volunteer work the parents. Most of us just show up, drop them off and leave we don't worry. I should be. Happy I, mean you know give them some independence here So, some parents who are eager to participate and feel like they can't. Let their child do anything without them. I didn't say that on. Air. They are consigned to parent helpers for the organization. So anyway, make a long story short. Their sole job is to just basically you know provide extra helping hand at like certain events and functions right. But for the typical volunteering kind of stuff that these kids do in the community, parents are not supposed to be part of it. Anyway, yeah. Without is volunteering last week. Parents shows up. In, place of her kid. The Kid. Well Perry. The kid has some other commitment and can't. fulfil her commitment to our house. that. She had signed up for a however you know that this organization you know the pretty good. If you make something, you can't make it you either find a substitute another. You know student or you just reschedule like it's pretty reliable. But this particular parent did not want the daughter the sun to lose the hours. Did a volunteer. In the organization Y'all will pretend you your kid and sign the time sheet. Wow. No because I had something to say about that. Your tires are going to be set. In the parking lot now. Around You WanNa you WANNA get competitive with your kids hours. It's on because not allowed. You're. Not. Stopping. This what do you call this in sports I? Don't know this is lake illegal substitution. She is not allowed to do that. And and takes away the because look at the end of the year the kids get an award for the amount of hours that they put in. Service. It's you know by that person doing that activity for the child they're taking away. You know legitimate hours. So the kids are working in my costing them opportunities. So anyway, that is my whole ran for this week. But like since, when did you know does parenting have to be philosophical? Watch out now is open for. Others like. Do. Hater that's going on around us. So over yeah. I'm over You know when parents think that the rules don't apply to their child. And they step in and you know argue about it like. That's Just the worst I mean come on the rules are there for reason? Yes I am a total rule foul. But I I mean. They're there for a reason and if you as a parent step in and try to. Change things so that just benefit your own child like that. What kind of message are you sending that is? Oh, and are you are you going to be a sympathetic when somebody else wants to break the rules or are you going to be like? Well, that's okay for me but yeah try to change elise my kids so therefore. To want the rules be changed for their own kids. Certainly don't want it to be changed or anybody else's kid no way do. What? You know my daughter noticed she was when they came home and told me and so if I was to say, oh well, we'll just forget about that and let's not worry about it. Let's not make waves. I mean what does that What does she learn from that to right like it's just as whole. A nasty side of. People. And just shock and you know me, I'm not want to make waves the men not one to like. Behind the scenes right. Yeah you know I think we're talking about this couple of score I was encouraging my daughter to say something make changes because I wasn't. This really, well by blood because I'm like, this is not right. And Yeah I'm not a you know. I mean I I get a little. I can bend the rules. Let's awhile. To the detriment of other kids and my kid. Yeah. That's I mean I. Could See being the parent who's there helping out? That's what I always did to be there to keep an eye on my kids but I don't think I don't think I would ever claim to be one of them to try to get credit for something. It's not impossible. I I might have written a paper you're there. You possibly taking a computerized test to support your child. WHO's they're totally get it. Yeah. This is not the way. Yeah. But as you say, the competitive nature of getting into college if if that is gonNA. It doesn't really make a difference I mean does not going Wedneday because you're doing something else. Harvard goes. Well, that's forget it. He's getting volunteer little rat. Or you had endless hours than. Candidate. X.. Y.. Z.. In No. That's just a bit extra as my daughter would say. Yeah Yeah. Ritz, hurts to me. I just thought what you earn. And you're trying to link pogo wool over. These people's eyes. Know in front of my daughter and another girl I'm like what? They're not gonNA see that if you're GONNA do it do it in secret that's. Don't let the kids. Warm. We break the rules in bribes. Advertised for goodness sake. Yeah I don't know. That's my little artist. Or? Did they try to say like, well, we didn't want to leave you in the lurch by not showing up. So I'm here or was it just totally like? Oh, he can't come. So I came so he could still get credit for the hours. We'll see that's the thing is that nothing was set like nothing was said to the people that were being volunteered for the for whatever they were doing onto for. nothing was I mean? I. Think my daughter got a little bit of a week explanation as to why the person is there but my daughter was ever that's not. Do. That and so you know it was just something that was meant to be. You know done under the radar. Yeah, and that's really shady I'm. Just calling that out. Yeah I know yeah. When I, think of competitive parenting I think about the parents who when you have a conversation with them, it's always about what outstanding thing their kid has done. And I don't always have things on the same par to talk about but I also don't want to sit there and hear about how wonderful your kid is nice for you. So happy I go now it's it's real interesting when you have kids with special needs because competition gets different zooming think you get competition on who is the most bad ass in IEP meetings right? Well, I one time in this. And that's not a competition I want to be involved in or you get you know I certainly gosh. When I was on email lists early on in parenting there was the you can't possibly understand this because your life so easy in my life is so hard. Let me tell you all the hard things about like if you were not. You know at the edge of your wits every second. Then clearly, you're losing this race whose parenting harder. Suck. You know can't some of us just sit here quietly and be generally okay. Is that a crime? You can't be here. If you're happy you can only be you're if if you're various degrees of miserable so it's sort of an anti-competition. Yeah who's had it the worst or You know the pain Olympics. Right right and I know. When my even in special education. I the resist one year or my son was in a class. It was a little ambitious for him. He could do it academically behaviorally it was difficult and some of the other moms just gotTa be in their Bonnet about him and complained and complained and complained, and one of them said to be your son doesn't belong in a class with my son and so it's like amongst all of us all of us with kids with special needs. You are less special cooks someplace else here the wrong kind of special or something. Yeah. I are functioning over here. You go off with the others. Samantha's that just completely smacked me upside the head I sort of felt like we were all in it together and isn't this great here our kids are all on the same class in there like You know even within groups like subgroups and specialty groups, there's still. Just competition to stir. Yeah. Like. Problems. WHO's got the Better this who's got the worst that and certainly sitting around waiting rooms of therapists. You hear you haven't tried this thing. What's the matter with you? I worked hard and found the way to do things you're not doing well. You, lose I win and that's I wanted to really talk about this topic because I think that you know this this spans all groups of parents and groups of kids I mean this just isn't something that. Is An issue to kids who? Are Applying to university. Right right. You know like you know. Even kids with special like you said in. Yeah. Groups were there. There's children with special needs disabilities. There's some serious competition. Yeah. And It's not all. Inspiration. Better road is it. Just, because we get our identities, so wrapped up in being parents. that it feels like if it feels like competition, it feels like a thing you're doing and everybody wants if you're putting all your time in your heart and your soul into something, you WanNa do it well, you know nobody wants to do their job and say, well, you know I'm adequate things are okay. You know you. WanNa do rate in the only way you can do greatest of your kids doing great or if you can show in some way that are parenting harder than everybody else. I wish our identities word. So wrapped up in IT I. Wish Mine Wasn't you know. Who Yeah I to do in common care onto something there that that's. You know behind a lot of this because you know if your whole. Identity is I'm a parent then. You WanNa. Do it. You get in your head that you can do it. You know if you're devoting this much of your mental and physical energy than you want to have something to show for it or I think. So we need ribbons handed out. In all sorts of different areas to I mean the other. Just. kind of reflecting on some other times when I felt extremely inferior and losing the parenting games. When it comes to food and feeding my kids. How well. Have you tried. Maybe a spelt flour. and. Seeds. Blackberries. Can. Can. Run. Yes. I would like to hide what what we feed our kids except my son puts on facebook every night. I feel I feel the silent judging go on. William every now and then somebody posts something about how bad to lobby is and everybody should stop eating it and I'm like you know what? We seem to be okay. What does that tell you makes you stronger? That's my all still. We're GONNA eat the macaroni and cheese roadblocks. I know when that macaroni cheese came out that thing that said that it was like filled with. Some things. We literally had discount the costco like a days before about. Probably. Twenty. Bucks. You. Were going to be eating and it wasn't even the craft was the an. The the high end. Stop Guys. Yeah, we're throwing away. That's. My daughter we went out shopping yesterday and she decided to she wanted to try the even higher end. Macaroni and cheese in a box which was that from cracker barrel. where it comes. Process cheese sauce thing that's not even a powder. Oh so What did she made it last night and as she was making it, she was like filming it like do videoing it for instagram or something. Like Chris Macaroni and cheese the whole while I'm just like. Please don't tell everyone what you're doing. Sale. Yeah kids like to eat ramen noodles. So there you go. I. Mean Look You WanNa talk about. Spilled with God knows what but. It's been a great variety of creamed soup based recipes that we enjoy when I'm meeting them. I'm thinking probably somebody would be horrified by this but me. Serving. Really. Someone else made it. Absolutely absolutely sometimes pickoffs the finish line first and other times. I think. We just need to change the rules you know. Certainly when every time you go on the Internet, somebody is judging you for something. It's hard not to feel like it's the competition and that every day there's a new race. Right there's a new you're. Running, in that direction, the racist that way. What were you thinking? Oh you don't have the lion shoes for. Your child's feed tower. Island. Feeling so salty over the whole thing. Really. Maybe. I'm just too involved. Could that be us to involved knows. Just, the right amount.

So you can free up time to focus on the work that drives you to start your free fourteen day trial go to Monday dot com. From wondering I'm David Brown and this business. Wars. On our last episode dangers of online dating for women dominated headlines after highly publicized attacks yet none of that dampen the online dating fervor. Between two, thousand, sixteen in two thousand seventeen spending on dating apps increased by ninety five percent in the US alone. At this point, former tender executive Whitney Wolfe has launched feminist APP it will succeed on multiple levels. Including revenge. This is episode five. Are you ready to bumble? It's September twenty seventeen. Whitney Wolfe, her twenty-seven, his newly married to oil heir Michael Hurt. It's not the only change in her life. Since she left tender three years ago after settling a sexual discrimination and harassment lawsuit, she's created bumble. bumble is quickly becoming a powerhouse dating APP breaking through an overcrowded market by touting a platform that allows women to make the first move its charging just ten dollars a year for a subscription, but it's raking in profits by introducing spinoff sites the go well beyond match make there's the bumble bff that encourages women to connect with other women for friendship. And that proves to be a rich vein to mind ninety percent of fumbles twenty, two, million users engage with the bff feature. And the BUMBLE BIZ APP allows women to connect for job-hunting collaboration and mentoring. It. All adds up to a very attractive package one that gets the attention of Berry Dillard's match group the conglomerate seemingly trying to buy every dating service on the planet. We've heard sits in a small conference room in bumbled ultra hip industrial modern headquarters in Austin Texas. One of her executive staff walks in. Blonde millennial woman wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with the bumble logo a yellow beehive. Sit Down Melissa listen to this share Whitney. What's up? Back in August match made an offer to buy bumble for four, hundred, fifty, million dollars. The staffer glances at the large poster on the bright yellow. Wall. Behind Wolf heard that reads brains are the new beauty. Then she locks eyes with her boss. I. Hope You tell them. No you bet I did by now fumbles probably worth a billion. DILLARD's match group already owned some forty five dating sites and APPS including tender. Okay. Cupid plenty of fish and match dot com. But bumble would be the crown jewel and wolf heard knows it. It's not just about the money. The last thing I WANNA do is step back into those meetings were I the only woman in the room they all think they're big boys you know power trippers and they'd still look down on me as someone who made a cutesy niece site for Girls Unbelieva Force. You'd think by twenty seventeen sexism would be a thing of the past and you'd be very wrong. So what are you going to tell the press same thing matches telling them. We've heard stands up and smiles. No comment. Now. Let's grab a coffee. But it's not over. In November match requests, bumbled confidential finance information and marketing plans. Typical move before upping an acquisition offer. bumble complies and match group doubles down in December reportedly offering over a billion dollars. But. No sale happens and match pulls out the only comment from both sides is once again. No comment. February twenty, eighteen Valentine's Day. After getting snubbed by bumble match group uses its biggest day of the year to announce a new feature for tender. Women can now make the first move with potential matches. Hardly revolutionary at this point, but newly promoted batch group CEO Mandy. GINSBURG tells the press. It's actually different than what bumble offers. The key is women can choose whether to turn it on or off. Those might not seem like fighting words but they spark serious legal war between tinder and bumble. In the cyber dating world. This is a Chili's versus the amazons. In March twenty eighteen match group tenders, parent company Sues Bumble for misuse of trade secrets and violating tenders, patents, and trademarks. The suit claims quote bumble sought to mimic tenders functionality trade off tenders name brand, and look and feel and build a business entirely on a tinder clone. Match contends that bumble hired away key tinder employees who shared its trade secrets and features. Including, swiping. And yes. Has the patent on Swiping. When bumbled debuted the press called it the feminist tender. As far as tinder is concerned, it's more like copycat tender for women who swipe? But Wolf. is about. To start swinging. Deep within the Cheer Yellow Bumble building under the brilliant Texas. Son Whitney Wolfe heard is strategizing with key staff on how to handle messing around the lawsuit. All right people we need a statement and it's gotTa. Be Strong. I'm not rolling over for these bastards. What have you got for me? One staffer stands to read from a paper. Dear match group, we swipe left on you. We Swipe left on your multiple attempts to bias copies, and now to intimidate us, we'll never be yours no matter. The price tag will never compromise our values. I like it. Put this into we a woman founded women lead company aren't scared of aggressive corporate culture. I have a couple more thoughts. Let's also say after some back and forth, the group drafts series six hundred word message. Let's close with this. We wish you the best, but consider yourselves blocked. Days later Barry Diller the seventy six year old billionaires flipping through the pages of the New York Times and sees fumbles open letter. Which also runs in the Dallas Morning News. And then just weeks after match filed its suit bumble files of four, hundred, million dollars countersuit accusing match of using its lawsuit to scare off investors by attempting to discredit bumble. The lawsuits get bogged down over jurisdictional questions and nondisclosure issues. Then finally, two years later they settle. No details about the settlement or disclosed. It's twenty sixteen Max CEO Mandy. Ginsberg's still has her sights set on acquiring a female friendly APP and she's got a savvy move up her sleeve. If match can't get. In get the next best thing hinge wants you to meet someone. Green. Even F kills us. Because when you find the real thing. You don't need US anymore. Which is kind of the point. hench the dating APP designed to be. deleted. When hinge debuted it was a softer gentler tinder, but Ginsberg's been watching his founder Justin McLeod redesigned his APP. Losing the addictive game like copycat swipe feature to emphasize serious relationships. And once users find their special someone their urged to delete the APP. It seems self-defeating but the messaging has paid off hinges female demographic base has grown four hundred percent. And this spike reveals something else. Among a growing group of Twenty, two to twenty, six year olds the desire for a deeper. Lasting. Connection is paramount. Ginsburg thinks the site is the perfect answer to bundles snub. After a lengthy courtship in June two, thousand, eighteen match group by fifty one percent of hinge. By the end of the year, the APP generates over five million dollars in revenue and by the following February match purchases full ownership. Matches consumed most of its rivals. Now. The battle becomes internal. But it will be no less bloody. December twenty sixteen at Tinder Christmas party at a Beverly Hills Hotel.

Then the NBA is back and we are loaded up don't missed Charles Barkley Steven, a., and many more live on the restart of the season. Then you've gotta be kidding Patrick. Mahomes.

Kelley. Suspended eight games. For his role in the bench clearing incident in Houston on Tuesday night, Kelly is appealing this suspension dodgers manager, Dave? Roberts also handed a one game suspension which he served yesterday. Injured mets starter. Marcus. Stroman reply to a tweet about this speaking. I think for a lot of people around the sport. When he said makes zero sense Ken, the candies talking about is Ken Rosenthal. said, he wasn't even thrown out of the game MLB siding with protecting a team that openly knowingly cheated their way to a world series. He doesn't deserve to be suspended at all hoping you wins his appeal looking forward to seeing you back out there J. K. O. Smoke. Thank everyone was extremely surprised when this happened yesterday, here's Buster Olney and Jessica Mendoza and buster I'll start with you. What do we know about what went into baseball's thinking in suspending Joe Kelley eight games. And Greenie. This was an enormous suspension within the context of sixteen game seasons. Equivalent of a twenty, one game suspension in one and sixty two game season relievers in these types of incidences get typically get two to five games and last night, the dodgers were. Out of their minds angry about this, they thought it was fair because Kelly didn't actually hit either Alex Bregman or Carlos. Correa they were upset with the fact that Dave Roberts got game dusty Baker didn't despite the fact that Baker would yelling at Kelly. During the course that inning but I think from Major League Baseball's perspective. If we look back at all the signs stealing stop dating back two, thousand, seventeen, the biggest mistake the rob Manfred made back during the Apple Watch Situation Yankees Red Sox. He didn't come down with the hammer of discipline that altered behavior. This was designed to alter behavior. They're sending the message. Look we're not going to stand by is everybody takes shots at the Astros. Are Fascinating I. Have So many questions just let me just quickly come to you though as as big picture is I can what was your reaction to the suspension? I was blown away and the busters. Point. Major League Baseball said they wanted to make a statement. They wanted to let teams. No. This is not going to be okay. Clearly they did. But when you look at what happened, you look at Joe, Kelley? And the fact how wild he is I. Think it was more of the expressions, things like that. You knew there was gonna be a suspension, but eight Games, eight games greedy is mentioned twenty one games, the equivalent of that, I? mean. This is something that I feel like the way too strong. Especially knowing, this is why people are so mad. Mad that none of the astros players who cheated were punished for this. But yet, you have a pitcher in Joe Kelley, who has now been the superhero for so many players were frustrated with the Astros and now he's getting suspended eight games. Okay. I have a bunch of questions for you here. Jessica the first one I will preface by saying I understand. This is a very difficult question to answer, but watching it with your lifelong knowledge of the game. Did you think as you just mentioned that Joe Kelley has a tendency to be wild? Did you think he was throwing that those guys? I think there was intent for sure to at least make a statement I. I. Don't know if he meant to go ninety six at Alex, Bregman head to be honest what I did see that showed that there was intent beyond just his facial expressions that we saw Joe Kelley make with the three pickoffs two Bregman. Once he got on the first base I know that doesn't seem to be is clear, but he threw down there and there was no chance of. of concealing, he was like eight feet off the bag, greeny and he threw down. Right is reps three consecutive times. Then you knew there was something there was something behind all of this I do believe Joe, Kelley. Wild. I. Believe that. He would not intend to throw that hard at Bregman head. But when it came down to cray when it came down to others, I feel like there was an intent to make a statement to thoughts I. I've been TV. TV, for thirty years of never in my life have we put up a picture of a guy sticking his tongue added an entire team before so that it's quite a remarkable moment that we have in the history of this sport. The second thought I have busters, I agree again, I can't get inside Kelly's head but I thought he was throwing at him and that is an extraordinarily dangerous act I'm just trying to take the other side of this for the The purpose of someone taking the other side that it is an extraordinarily dangerous act whether someone is a cheater or not whether they cheated into winning the world series or not the punishment for that should not be the ramifications of a nine, hundred, sixty, mile an hour fastball hitting you in the head which could have happened in this situation busters. So I'm I'm trying to play the other side of this thing, and from that perspective, I think I see it. Yeah, I can tell you this that folks with other teams were angry during the winter when rob came out and basically said, he wasn't going to allow teams to take shots at the Astros folks with other teams saying, Hey, you know what? They're big boys. They can take the ramifications of what they did, but you right from Rob's perspective. And I think he is feeling, we do not want to have incidents were constantly during the course of the year. We got astros players lying in heaps. And this is just a loud I mean the other day, the UMPIRES didn't even warn Joe Kelley when he was on the mound after that first pitchman Alex Bregman head. So it was extraordinary for Major League Baseball to step in and essentially overrule the empires on the field. and. So I guess Jessica I would ask you is understanding I. WanNa. Make sure everyone understands how we got where we are. Major. League baseball had to get to the bottom of the Astros Stein ceiling thing in order do that they gave everyone immunity because no baseball player is going to come forward and say oh. Yes, I was being trash cans and these were exactly why I was doing it unless they're told they're not gonNA get suspended for that is for those who didn't follow the story essentially the reason why there have been no ramifications for the Astros and that whether it was the right or wrong thing to do Jessica. I WANNA. Make sure I'm getting all this right for the audience. Is. The is the crux of the frustration that the people around the sport have that these guys cheated, they didn't really suffer any. Consequences or punishment for it, and here's Joe. Kelley doing what baseball players have been doing for one hundred and fifty years, which is making you pay policing the game yourself and he's getting suspended for what amounts to twenty games of the regular season. Yeah, I mean this has been unheard of in general twenty, twenty everything that we've seen, and this is i? mean, it just absolutely floored me as I mentioned, but you got to think of what, Joe, Kelly is representing and you're seeing it with the Marcus. Stroman tweet. You're seeing it with the players like cody bellinger who demanded that they should have the ring. Ring. Instead of the Houston Astros. So this isn't just a matter of the fact that the Astros cheated. It's the fact that Jose L. Toby won the MVP that year over Aaron judge, it's the fact that they won the world series over this dodgers team that is extremely frustrated, and that came out wasn't even on the team, but as a teammate you can. Can tell everything that they're feeling, and it's not just the dodgers pretty much every player we heard from them. Greenie. Prior to the season. We've forgotten. So much of that anger because of everything that's happened since then, but it is clearly there and Joe Kelley showed that crossing the top of the hour here. Nine am in the East I'm Mike Greenberg Buster only. Only, Jessica Mendoza with us here get up on ESPN with you for the next two hours, and then I take will come your way in the midst of the discussion of an eight game suspension for dodgers, Reliever Joe Kelley for essentially for throwing at multiple members of the Houston. Astros two nights ago and buster just to put a ribbon on this conversation. To defend the action baseball yesterday, if the intention was to make sure people don't throw with the Astros the rest of the season, it feels like they did that. Yes. One hundred percent because I think now folks with other teams are going to say are gonNA. See the discipline and say look, there's a significant risk of losing an important player from your team for a long period of time in the season that's going to be over in the blink of an eye and I think that's what Rob's intention was. It's what he didn't do in two, thousand, seventeen, he's doing. Doing here in two thousand and twenty trying to alter the behavior. Okay. So again, I'm not trying to suggest I, agree with the decision was made yesterday, but I think I understand it. Now it is. As you mentioned, Jessica, such an unprecedented time. The next thing you know we'll have seven inning doubleheaders. Oh, wait a minute. They're talking about seventeen doubleheaders buster. What can you tell us about seven inning doubleheaders? They are under consideration. Tony Clark, Major League Baseball the other day Tony Clark. Of course, the head of the players association said the players are open to it, and you know what? In two, thousand and twenty. Greenie they're making up the rules. Is there going along and if this helps then sure go ahead and do it. That's what I was hearing from folks around baseball last night, and this morning we have for example situation this weekend were the Toronto Blue Jays you're playing the Philadelphia. Philadelphia Phillies, clinic general manager of the Phillies told reporters yesterday. It's possible. They'll implement the seven inning games in the double header for that those games. That's how quickly this is changing. I think that people like it because at this point players are not in midseason form pitchers are not in midseason form in this will protect them to some degree Jessica. You woke up early so that I could ask you this question. How do you feel about a seven inning Major League Baseball Game? Greenie, you're talking my game seven inning. That's my language I, I. Love it and I saw Cleveland Chicago go with a double header I had a game yesterday with Oakland into busters. Point. We're seeing pin arms come out similar to what we just saw maccabee. Oh, not being able to throw strikes struggling to get out. So when you're talking about a double header, all the arms I, don't care if there's a thirty man roster. Roster I love seven innings because that's fourteen for the day for those two teams, I. Mean. This is this is what I played in and I, think it's a great idea especially. Now, let's just try stuff. Right? That's what we're doing. Right. This is this is throwing stuff up against the wall and seeing what six season both of you. Thank you. Again, that's button the conversation with once again, looking at this remarkable photo. This this sums up what is going on in baseball this week, about as well as anything possibly could, that's Joe Kelley and enjoying while you can because you're not going to see him again for another eight days. Meanwhile, these teams played again yesterday as we run the basis, the dodgers beat the Astros again last night four to two in thirteen innings. Edwin Rios put La in front with a leadoff two, run homer in the top of the thirteenth that's baseball in two, thousand, twenty. It was the longest game in the majors this season by both innings thirteen and time four hours and forty four minutes meanwhile, the unexpected. Unexpected layoff didn't impact the. Yankees. They took care of the orioles nine three and their return to Action Baltimore. Last night, that was Aaron judge hitting his first home run of the season Garrett. Cole struck out seven over six and two thirds. He's T to talk. Now, the Yankees have played three games. The giants rally past the padres seven, six on a walk off splashdown home run by Mike is streaky in the bottom of the ninth, his second homer of the game. The aftermath included a socially distant celebrate in at home plate and a fan falling out of a Kayak in mccovey cove to retrieve the ball. Okay to football we go. Here's a crazy story NFL. They did their annual top one, hundred player rankings voted on by the players revealed last night, and somehow the unquestioned best player in Football Patrick Mahomes came in number four. To, other quarterbacks are ahead of you see the list, this NFL networks, top one, hundred list voted on by the players. They have Lamar, Jackson Russell Wilson, Aaron Donald and then Patrick, mahomes with Michael Thomas rounding out the top five, and if you think Patrick Mahomes didn't notice think again he's taken notes. He's taking names. He's very much aware of what these rankings had to say, here's my football crew for this morning. Bring him in here. There they are guys, Marcus. Spears Mike Tannenbaum Dan Grazziano is here before we allow the guys to react and just explain as best you can exactly how this? What is this list? For the fans who got this morning and they're thinking, how do they put this together? How did they put this together? Yeah. I. Mean. This is a list that they do every year that the players vote on and they have. You know they send a ballots around, ask them to vote and it's it's. It's. It's their peers I. mean you know we've talked about. The respect of your peers whether an award that comes from your peers means more at that kind of thing, I mean this? This is what sort of you get and. I don't know. I. Mean this weird like I'm looking at it and. Honestly Greenie. They do this every year. I've never paid any attention until three hours ago. When you told me, you were GonNa, ask me about it on TV and it's just another lift. Off Season ranking it's. It's the players but. My first reaction honestly was, this is an example of someone who has been a voter for awards and hall of fame, etc. For years as a member of the media when you hear, well, why don't the players vote instead of the media? This is kind of the reason why I love it. I love that take now marcus spears. I've been waiting all morning for the moment. My alarm went off this morning I've been waiting for your reaction to this. What did you think of Patrick mahomes being named the fourth best player in the? NFL. That was what I thought. But the second thing I thought was I don't WanNa say that and take away from what Lamar Jackson did this year. Obviously, there's a hard argument for Lamar Jackson. That'd be the best player particularly this year in the NFL based on what he did, but we all know, Damn. Well, Patrick? Mahomes is the best player in the NFL number. One, number. One, number. One, number one again, Gee, if you put it in number one, money number one wins, super bowl super bowl MVP number one car in the NFL he number one team on, he just can't see Roy for that alone. He used to be the best player in the NFL. Just, the things that even happened off the field. So we have in this conversation about NFL. I want to let me go back to this. I'M GONNA defend my boy Dan Orlovsky for a second, which is rare which I won't be doing a lot on on nfl live, but here's the thing. This list became null and void when Carson Wentz was anointed because there is no list that. That you can compile that one hundred players based on last year and not have Carson, winstone it, and fact that you don't have Patrick mahomes number. Listen we it. We've been wasting our time. Gee, that's was happening everybody in the world know in the world I'm not talking about just just America where people on football, we just watch the K B o Gay before came on the. Players know. Petra hold off the best player in. Believing that we give it up the Mike because I'm done talking about. He was voted number one in that league. But not in the NFL, it's an excellent point again. What do you think? Her Art. Make additional points. That's why a lot of former players are good Jerome Andrews, because they cannot evaluate Patrick. Mahomes isn't even five. He's turning twenty five in a couple of weeks and how about this statistic thirty three points a game per start for Kansas City all-time highest points per game. So clearly, the best draw, a line love Lamar Jackson, but it's Patrick mahomes and then everybody else. Yeah. This is the only again, this a big deal obviously isn't a big deal, but the Oh, and this is. Is Not to take anything away from Lamar Jackson, who is one of the greatest seasons ever and Russell Wilson? Who is a surefire first ballot hall, of Famer, but the only one I could even see if you wanted to make an argument for it would Donald Marcus and I would come to you for your expertise on this because it feels to me like the distance between Aaron Donald and whoever is the next back best player at his position might be greater than the distance between Mahomes. Lamar. Mahomes and Russell or whoever else you wanted to put behind him Aaron. Donald. Might just be so dominant at his position that you could justify putting him number one. That's the one that I would have had a little easier time understanding is that a is that a reasonable representation Marcus that donald is just so much better than anyone else playing his position that you could see him going number one. Year G. for sure like that is that is something that are is old us just like we have in this conversation about pets mahomes right now, and what is have told us Aaron Donald is as dominant deep into clear as we've ever seen not just against his peers in the NFL, you got Fletch Cox, you got Chris Jones who just got a contract from Kansas City to details will respect. They're really good position, but they ain't Aaron, Donald. So to your point, yes, there is a degree separation that Aaron Donald has from everybody else on defense at his position in particular that you can make a hard argument. He's the one. One of the best players if not the best player defensively. But also one of the best players in the League in general, we'll leave the guys. We have a ton of football to get to this morning. But Oh, by the way, the NBA season returns tonight back to basketball is brought to you by Google and it has been since March eleventh that we've seen an NBA game counted feels good. That was different lifetime in so many ways, I, guess it actually was. So as they get ready to return to action tonight, we wanted to spend exactly sixty seconds making sure you remember exactly where it was that we left off. The PELICANS were pushing towards the playoffs led by Ziad. Twenty in sixteen nineteen games while John Moran at the Grizzly the playoffs leading them in scoring and assists last look to do that with Michael Jordan Jason. TATUM was an MVP candidate averaging thirty night. After the All star break. The Mavericks had the best defense in the league with Luca accounting for more than fifty game by himself. The defending champs had the exact same record in sixty four games as they had the year before rockets were playing small. Small and their star backward was on a record base headed toward being the highest scoring duo in over forty years. He honest and the bucks were cruising to another one seed with the fifth best scoring margin of all time and the Lakers had won eleven thirteen with Lebron headed to the stretch with an excellent chance to become the oldest MVP since com alone, he'd be honest and coli. It is final weekend. Now, all back for run title that. The any in the history of the. NBA. We'll be getting you ready for this morning, Long Stephen, a Smith, Charles Barkley and many more. They'll be together ten am eastern a little less than an hour from now. Don't miss them here on get up and also coming up this morning. They will face each other tonight. Will they see each other in a playoff series and who wins Lebron's Lakers? Clippers got Jay will and big perk coming up next with their insight and then Lamar Jackson openly recruiting Antonio. Brown, could it happen? Has the league treated him fairly, we'll answer those questions and more. With you ought. Good Morning. Zion Winston, I'm Russell Westbrook. Good Morning I'm Damian Lillard. I'm joy. I'm Leonard and you're watching watching you're watching. You're watching get up. Get up is presented by Fan, duel, more ways to win. The. NBA Restart on the schedule for tonight Jay Williams and Kendrick Perkins or here, and let's do a little either or as we look ahead big fella who you got the bucks for the field in the east. got. The Field Greenie, because here it is the books. We all know that they have the Batman. Concerns. About the other two guys that get pays the the major books and this Chris Milton and. So, they always have a great regular season, but disappear during the season. So they have to step up as certify Rut I. have a feeling Jay was going to disagree. We'll come back to that. But J, we'll your either or question is we got in the West Lakers or clippers. I don't have the Lakers even Vegas does I had the clippers and anybody that wants to use this whole argument about quiet Leonard Shooting Twenty seven percent over his three scrimmages. Operative word, Greenie scrimmages, I. Know They have players out. But Paul Doors, Reggie. Jackson Patrick Beverley mantras Herald Lou will nobody's stopping firepower. They are the babies that come out of the West that damn I wanted to follow up. Up On that in a moment, I'll give you a chance to respond to what Kendrick said before in a minute. But let's start with that. You have any concerns not only about the necessarily the players who have it looked good. But they've had a lot of players leaving the bubble coming back there seems to have been some uncertainty around that team. How would you describe your level of concern? Green. Year. Sorry. Jay. Williams, go ahead and play Jay Williams. I feel like there's been uncertainty around team the whole year, but it's been injuries. Event questions about wing, can they play completely healthy? All I know is that they have a plethora of lockdown defenders and you have Leonard, who was the MVP. Last year of the finals, like you have the scoring punch better than a lot of other teams and I know that the Lakers have Lebron eighty, two, top five players, but all the pieces that they can put on the broad if they are able to get healthy at the right time, the clippers are still because of their ability to score in volumes, and that's what makes them different anniversary diversity. Defensively, I really liked their favorite. So. Now, here's what I think is going to be fun because we asked each of you to put together a bold prediction and I've cheated, I already know what big perks is going to be and I just WANNA see J. Wills, face Kendrick, Perkins when you make your bold prediction about the eastern. conference. The. TORONTO. Raptors Greenie care about how Jay we'll look at listen Toronto Raptors are coming out of the East and let me tell you what before the pandemic. The Lakers books in the last thirty Games that were twenty three and seven, and right out that it was the Toronto Raptors. When you look at his rap, the team Greenie, there are very stingy defense event. They ranked number one going I. So both they right number one in four has gone up pick and rolls in. Down screens, they are a defensive of defensive. Crazy defensively, and then when you look at them on officer being, they got multiple weapons, they got different guys that are capable of going for twenty plus points a night. Norm piles, six men in the yield candidate you have. Bleeding Kyle Larry both good for big nights, and you got spicy P. C., Arkham League player who took over the number-one role and have proven to sign on the biggest stage in NBA finals. So I've got Ruby Raptors I. don't care how. Many. Yes. Twenty nine. Yes. Yes. Her yuck. Easy grew winger. Robin is easy to prove winger Robin. It's time to prove you become a Batman when you're the guy that every single night has to do with. Leonard? Did last year, I, do hear you on Toronto's depressive burning ranked number three in the league I liked that no spicy be these spice ultimately going to take your team to win a championship. But I kind of like what you're I like what you're preaching a little bit. If you like it. If you follow Perkins on twitter, you know that he has been singing the praises of Pascal. Siaka for a while right now. So he is very much on the bandwagon there. I like that pick J will what you bold prediction. My prediction Greenie is by the time we're done talking about this NBA playoff season, we will be talking about Jason Tatum, being a top ten player in the League people forget the last nine games before the season ended Jason. Tatum was averaging thirty points. He put up forty one points on the Lakers in La. On the biggest stage. The way his name is suited, he's herky-jerky. He can get to different spots on the court if that jump. Jump side is as good as it was before, we're going to be talking about Jason Tatum's name being in the top ten players of the League when the season is over I'm not saying, I'm going to pick the celtics come out of the east, but I like Jason Tatum. Name being of the League of the elite when it's all said and done I like that too i. think he has future MVP, consideration written all over him are. The big moment we restart tonight, what is your NBA, finals prediction Kendrick Perkins when we get to the last two teams standing who they going be. Is Going to beat the Los Angeles Lakers and Toronto Reps and anybody who who's not picking the Los. Angeles. Lakers the best duo since Kobe has said Will Lebron James and Anthony Davis and yes, I hear you over the day wheel talking about the clippers and Guess what the Lakers got. The same amount. Miguel. They got more championship experience, the India team in the League, and by the way we don't value Anthony Davis said NOPE, we're talking about a guy who could get you forty points. Twenty Rebounds Eight. Five ases three steals in his sleep in their sleep. That is a certified robbing, and he's not even Ravin each has taken a back seat to Lebron James So. Don't get it twisted J. Wheel, the Lakers got to, and by the way, Dion waiters late day or Smith been looking pretty damn good to me. I like the anger. Susie as and what do you think J will? A couple of things. Nobody's funder valuing Anthony Davis. He's considered a top five player in the League. Perk. And when you talk about death, you can't just say because you have to top players out of the top players in the league. Now, sudden death, this team lost reasoning Rondo. By the way he was second on the team in assists per game. He was a other person that can actually initiate the now gonNA say cal. And, this offense when Lebron James is out which I think he can do I know he can do it at the same clip that Rondo and then April were really spearheaded this team defensively too. So now you're asking. In Jr Smith to be defensive lockdown players. I don't know if they can do that I. Know that can score. I don't know if the. Perfect final. Let me tell you. Let me tell you some day. We'll. Have One. I. Listen all. Have won championships they gotta defense of Ankara in the middle of they have a big man in rim-protector even raptors last year. Guess what the Lakers got three of them, develop McGee, the, White House with Anthony, Davis they are bouncing off Pogos, shakes the clippers. They do not have. Okay. Partner, you need her. Okay, her business. I have to leave it here because I whenever I go small ball if I go. Green. Green Green. Green greeted. Yeah. Switched one through five. That's why he's a generational talent. He can switch to five. He's one of the most versatile big in the league on the deepest severe. That's why he's going to win defense the player of the year Aj. We finish this conversation on facetime because I'm not done with. Got To tell them all call you. Only, we have talked to the dynamic of these two guys together and we will continue as the NBC's restart tonight. Great work follows good to see you both. Thank you looking forward to tonight and I've got my question for you. This morning. It's on twitter at ESPN Greenie. Who you got an and big perk is going entirely different directions, Lakers, clippers, bucks, or other. Those are the options. Go on my twitter page at ESPN Greenie cast your vote. We'll have the results a little later in the show, meanwhile a little more than A. A half hour from now look at those two Charles Barkley and Steven, A. Together talking NBA with the season coming back. Tonight, we are looking forward to that and we of course a super excited because tomorrow night, we have our first NBA. Restart seating games on ESPN. We got the Celtics and the bucks at six thirty. Then the rockets and the mavs on ESPN ESPN, deported tests and the ESPN APP coverage begins with NBA countdown at six eastern feels good to say all of that as we continue back to the NFL. Lamar Jackson. Recruiting Antonio Brown. Could it happen? The answer's yes? We'll explain how next? We are back and you're watching get up presented by Fan Duel. Visit Interesting story in the NFL yesterday. Lamar. Jackson working out with free agent wide receiver, Antonio Brown. The video you're seeing here is from back in April yesterday. Jackson. told reporters training camp that he was still holding out. Hope that Baltimore will sign the former. All pro. Onto Antonio Brown? I was hoping we will get him. was still hoping a little bit well around as he was a great guy. You know you don't really see anything going on all. He was working. You can tell this man, he won't go like twenty, four seven. Guys and there's no quit with him. So is like that's the type of guy. We need an locker room. We WanNa win and tell him. He wanted to win. You want to play all. He's all in on bringing an Antonio Brown. Guys are back Marcus and Mike T and again, Dan? Graziano. My insider I start with. You just take us through procedurally. Let's just say the Ravens decided. They want to sign Antonio Brown. We're not suggesting that we know they are. But if they wanted to what steps would be taken before he was actually on the field with Lamar? Jackson. Antonio, Brown is still under investigation by the NFL for accusations that were leveled against him. Serious charges that were leveled against him by multiple women. Last fall until the NFL completes those investigations, they're not going to put Antonio Brown on the field. So if a team, any team Baltimore, any other team were to sign him right now, the most likely scenario is. Is that the League would place Brown on the Commissioner's exempt list, which is the basically a suspension with pay until such time as their investigation is complete and they have decided on whether he deserves discipline for those incidents from last fall. So theoretically, if the Ravens signed him, you could hear a week or a month or how long it takes for. For the NFL to complete its investigations that he suspended for a certain number of games and the Ravens would have to sign him without knowing what that number is. So so I have a lot of questions that come from that. Mike I'm GonNa, come to you first on them because you're my general manager here that uncertainty when you sign him and you don't know what it is. If the League announced that anyone signs this guy, he suspended six games eight, games, ten games at least you know what it is. You're dealing with if you're a general manager, how does that uncertainty not having any real knowledge of what availability he will have four you? How does that impact your interest in signing him? Greenie, it's hugely consequential. Here's why if you're the journal Majer, you're talking to your owner, you're talking to your head coach. This is a hard decision and you want to deal with. You want to say, Hey, he's out four games, but we five we gone. We're going to bite the bullet from a PR standpoint and we're GONNA go and not knowing is huge I i. Am Not Defending Antonio Brown by any stretch. What he allegedly did is awful with that said he has basically. Basically served a fifteen game suspension already and this uncertainty killing his eligibility for the twenty twenty season, the uncertainty, not only around how the NFL will handle it. But the uncertainty around his personality, we have seen so many things marcus again, the legal piece of this is one thing. It's the most important thing. But there are other things. There are the videos we've seen over the course of the last year or so on on instagram and other social media that have not seemed. That have been questionable to say the very least, and there's the way he handled the situation with the raiders and the way he handled his his departure from Pittsburgh, and the way he handled what happened after New England, and if you're a player on a team right now, Marcus, are you thinking boy hope we sign Antonio Brown. I'm thinking I hope we signed him. But also as a player, like Lamar Lou to I'm hoping I can beat a guy that he can come into an environment. If that decision is made by the front office and be one of those faces gives Antonio Brown a little pause enduring the things that we perceive. He may do in the locker room and listen I'm GONNA, just go out on a limb here. G I think Lamar Jackson this guy I. I believe if Antonio Brown ended up in the Ravens, locker room, with Lamar. Jackson. S quarterback with that environment that I had an opportunity to spend a year in. That may be a good place for Antonio Brown, and now I know everybody's listening to say a man you out of your mind. Have you recognize what Antonio Brown has done around this lead, but I know harps, I know horrible I, know that organization but shoddy all of those guys. Than anybody to impact that I think Lamar Jackson were have not only about bouts and Fan Tony Brown this now on video public league for everybody to dissect breakdown. But also in the workouts that they've had an opportunity to have this, all season could could be a part of that decision making move forward. Now, with that being said, obviously, we have the caveats, the off, the field, legal issues, the allegations, but even more. So I think the NFL, we just strictly talking about a football decision, the League office and not only that, but the team, the team more soda. In the League, Office is going to have to wrap their heads around the videos that they saw Antonio. Brown's celebrating. Celebrating getting out of Oakland. When they gave him all of that money when he had an opportunity to go into situation where grew obviously wanted him to be a big part of that team that is going to be the most detrimental thing to Antonio. Brown didn't back into the lead. How he responded to teams. They gave him an opportunity is the number. One thing that teams go look at. So it's the ravens could be there with the more Jackson and just button this by asking back to Dan Graziano. Is there reason to believe that this investigation has taken a very long time? Is there reasonably that if a team indicated, it wanted to sign him the League would expedite that. Is it. Is it realistic to think that they're not moving with urgency because there isn't anyone trying to sign him, do those things go together and your experience covering this stuff? No I don't think. So because I think that the league does get asked in these situations and I remember thinking back to the Kareem Hunt Situation. Right, where the Cleveland browns did sign him before the League. Decided on discipline and then he ended up being suspended eight games and they had constructed a contract that you know that allowed for them to pay him for the Games he played. So No I. Don't think so I think the League is serious about their investigation. They wanted to reach its correct conclusion and they'll take the appropriate amount of time. In order to make sure that happens see where this thing goes again. That's Lamar. Jackson. Saying he'd like to have Antonio Brown. No Way to know exactly how that's going to play out or win in the meantime. Let's get up and go with other news from around the world of sports starting in the NFL dolphins quarterback to a tango was fully cleared to practice after passing his physical yesterday is expected to be on the field participating without limitations when the dolphins begin practices next month. So a lot to watch for their nats outfielder Juan Soto has been cleared to return by Major League baseball after testing positive for. For. COVID nineteen last week. However, he still has to be cleared by the Washington DC, health department. Before we can return to play the team hopes to have him back workouts by Saturday. Meanwhile, an additional marlins player has tested positive for the coronavirus bringing the total of positive tests to eighteen among their traveling party. The phillies had no positive tests. They will resume play with a double header on Saturday Dr Anthony Fauci was asked about baseball's handling of the outbreak on the ESPN daily podcast. I think they've handled it well to be honest with you in that, they've done virtually everything that you could do to try to get the main goal was to protect the health and the welfare of the players and of the personnel associated with the team. You can hear more Dr Choose interview with Pablo on today's ESPN daily podcast. She talks about the challenges, risks and rewards of the return to sports as we continue with baseball telling one pitcher to sit down. We were stunned. Did they get this? Right? We're talking all about it with you coming up in just a few moments and notre. Dame's big move to the ACC. Could it be for more than just one season Heather dinner? It's just talked to their athletic director. We have the very latest next. You are watching get up presented by Fan Duel. and. What has shaped up to be a very busy day in sports? We have three insiders lined up for you here with a variety of different sports expertise to get to Basra Rolling on the baseball dentist who just spoke to the athletic director at Notre Dame, and we will start with Maliki Andrews in the NBA in the bubble because after four and a half months, the NBA is back tonight in the market game on the schedule pits, the clippers against the Brown and the Lakers the Lakers expecting anthony, Davis to play after he was poked in the eye Saturday during a scrimmage. So we're looking forward to seeing him against Kawhi? Kawhi, and the clippers will be without Lou Williams and Mantras Harold Patrick Beverley is listed as questionable. He's in self isolation after returning to the team on Sunday and the early game. Tonight the jazz take on the Pelicans, and then of course, means Zion who was a game time decision as he tries to get back up to speed after a family medical emergency, and so again, back to the bubble Wego with Maliki standing by at Melik I. Feel like we've been waiting for this night for what feels like a very long time. What is the most important thing or things that the fans needed now we get set for tip. Oh. What's important to understand Greenie as much as this date was circled as the day the drought, the NBA ends. The players are seeing this day as the time when their social justice platform, their microphone gets even louder. So expect to see, I've talked to sources within the PELICANS and jazz their plan tonight is they kick off this restart, they set the tone for what is going to be happening on the court going forward, and so from my understanding, the discussion that they are having from both players on both sides is that they are planning to kneel around the black lives matter type that is printed onto the court and they explicitly wanted to do. do so together, they did not want to have a division between what the Pelicans did during the national anthem and what the Jazz did Donovan Mitchell Andrew Holiday. Made it very clear to their teammates were fully on board with this that whatever they did. They were in it together of should be very powerful. Tonight. We'll obviously see that and that will no doubt continue throughout. Let me quickly come back to you then on. Zion if we can, and on the playing part of this, what is our expectation relative to him? He had to leave the bubble for family reasons. He's trying to work his way back in what is your expectation regarding him tonight. It is so clear listening to. Talk, he said anybody who knows me knows I want to play I, WanNa play basketball the key here though is the medical staff. Everybody knows Alvin Gentry said that if he is able to play, we want to play our best players and we want to play them as much as possible. But they are being very cautious here because of that thirteen day layoff, he was able to practice yesterday, but it was a little bit of a light practice and the day before that, they didn't do any five on five. So people within the Pelicans one him out there. But it's just a matter of whether or not. They think it's a health risk or. Or Malacca after a month, essentially in the bubble tonight, you finally get to see games count and we're all looking forward to it. Thank you very much. We'll check with you tomorrow. Meanwhile, let's turn our attention to the latest from college football. You might have seen this yesterday. Notre Dame will be joining the ACC. If there is a season, this fall, the conferences board of directors voted yesterday to move forward with an eleven game football season starting to weekend of September twelfth. But the fighting Irish is a full league member that is extremely significant for those who know the history of the sport of Notre Dame's long and proud history as an independent. I know that you just spoke with the athletic director at Notre. Dame. Jack Warwick in the last half hour or so what did he tell you? Well, he said that this is the result of a very strong working relationship between himself and ACC? Commissioner. John Wofford. The two of them had been talking about possibilities now for weeks and remember there is an existing contractual agreement between the two of them and Notre. Dame was already expected to play six ACC opponents this season. So it made sense for them to broaden that partnership this year and Swartberg told me specifically that they could have constructed their own schedule. But by doing it this way, it gave them a greater level of certainty and control considering everything that's. That's uncertain right now in college football, if I was reading this correctly yesterday, Notre Dame, which is a very lucrative television contract all to itself with NBC that will go into the for lack of a better word, the conference pop, right? That will be that will be part of the money that the entire conference splits up, which does beg the question. Is this a one off circumstance based on on these extraordinary times that we're living in or do you believe there's a chance? This is the beginning of Notre Dame actually joining a conference in football going forward. Did you know GEICO's now offering an extra fifteen percent on car and motorcycle policies? That's fifteen percent on top of what Gyco could already save you. So what are you waiting for your baby to let you sleep in a? Sleeping, another half hour. Thanks Sweetheart.

O'Grady, Allah Jax, Warwick, answer that question for you. Exactly what he told me was he called this an unusual circumstance unrelated to Notre Dame's long-term assessment of independence that being said, he did say historically that the Irish is ability to compete for a conference championship. This year is certainly a big deal. They're GONNA be really interesting to see if they wind up playing. I'm just making this up. If it's Notre Dame Clemson an ACC championship game, they may decide they kind of like the feel of that very quickly. What's the latest? I. Know We have something from the SEC working towards their decision making process. What do we know? Yes. Keep an eye on that. The president's are meeting today via video teleconference. The coaches spoke with Greg Sankey, a regularly scheduled meeting at eight thirty this morning. So I guarantee the big twelve conference's keeping an eye on what the SEC is doing because the domino's continue to fall in college football scheduling. Working closer and closer to the start heather outstanding work. Thank you very much. We'll check in with you again tomorrow now to baseball where this to me was the most interesting that happened yesterday, the dodgers, Reliever Joe Kelley suspended eight games for his role in the bench-clearing incident and Houston on Tuesday night. He's appealing the suspension, the dodgers manager Dave Roberts was also suspended one game. He served that last night, and if you're wondering what the reaction around the sport was, this is Marcus stroman. WHO'S An injured, mets. and. He tweeted at Ken Rosenthal who was reporting about this, that makes zero sense. He wasn't even thrown out of the game and they'll siding with and protecting a team that openly and knowingly cheated their way to a world series. He doesn't deserve to be suspended at all hoping wins his appeal looking forward to seeing you back out there J. K.. So buster only I have I, have two questions for you. The first is, would you say that feeling from Marcus? Stroman. Was Representative of what you were hearing from most people around the sport yesterday and also how would you describe baseball's rationale in arriving at this game suspension? Yet. Absolutely reflected the feelings. You got a text message last night from one managers saying if I have to hear one more person feeling. Sorry. For the Astros, I'm going to get sick other people saying, Hey, the astros should be big boys and have to stand up and stand in the box an answer for what happened. They feel like the major league baseball shouldn't be protecting the astros, but I think when you look back at the whole history of the science dealing thing, it's pretty clear. Rob Manfred. Big Mistake back in two thousand, seventeen during the Yankees red. SOx Apple Watch situation was he didn't come down with the disciplined hammer that would have altered behavior didn't tell players and staffers if. If you engage in that. You're going to get kicked out on the sport, and because he didn't do that the Astros situation exploded and other teams probably were looking to do the same thing, and this was a decision made to alter behavior. It certainly went way beyond precedent within the context of a sixty game season equivalent of twenty, one game suspension over one hundred and sixty two games. It typically relievers who are suspended along these lines, get two to five games. The dodgers internally apoplectic about this decision I want to bring. Jessica does a back into the conversation here and I just ask you very quickly as you saw this yesterday. Do you believe Major League Baseball got this right which Kelly? I. Don't think they got it right. I think the message they wanted to send, but I mean getting it right. A Games which buster mentioned is equivalent of twenty one. Get a warning within that game. He didn't ojected within that game, and now this comes down I. was floored. I knew there was going to be a message that they wanted to send just because prior to the season, they wanted to make sure teams new. We do not taller eight anyone coming after the astros hitters knowing, how much anger? How much frustration I mean we forget the cody bellinger's Aaron Judge's all the statements that. That came out before the before the season of how frustrated players were with this astros team and that was shown with Joe. Kelly actions. So again, I'm on your side. I agree that this seemed well certainly surprise, but if I were to take the other side of it buster, if I were to argue baseball side of it, I would say that while policing itself has been a part of baseball history for one hundred fifty. What almost happened to Alex Bregman, the other night could have been far worse even than cheating to win a world series and we can't have that. No matter what, and if we don't send a message right now whether Joe Kelly is a little wild or not. He threw a ninety six mile an hour fastball. To head if we don't send a message that we can't have that, it will go on all season. Right. This would have gone all season long they put a stop to that. So if I were to defend their action yesterday buster, that's how I would do it. You're one hundred percent right that certainly their intent and they understood that through the season, they don't WanNa have open season on the Astros. They don't have every single day. Folks wondering as they watch the Games as a reliever gonNA throw an Astro Astro hitter in a game suspension. A sixty game season is a big deal, and now if you're a pitcher on the mound and the scores one-sided and you have an opportunity with one of those two, thousand, seventeen astros standing in the box, you're going to think twice about taking your shots. Jessica. So you understand how this stuff works better than anybody I. Do you believe that this is a totally different story of Joe? Kelley purposely hits Alex Bregman in the, but which has been sort of the the the the unwritten rule of major league baseball for a long time. If he just did what baseball players always do when the game police itself, do you think we're having an entirely different conversation today? I think it was so much the ninety, six head, even though I think the intent was for Joe. Kelley. To hit Bregman I knowing how Joe Kelley was. I, think he wanted to hit it right in the butt and he ended up missing over his head I. Think it was the expression that he made after the Carlos Correa slider and then the strikeout. Him sticking out his tongue, just the going back and forth, the pickoffs, the I i. think it was all in total I. Think if he just plugs out Bregman one time three, oh pitch, you're done I. Don't think we see the same repercussions. But the fact is the benches cleared. It was a huge news story. It was the expressions he stuck out his tongue i. mean, there was so much that went into this beyond just plunking one player Kaelin. Can we put that picture back up again if you happen to have it? Handy. I said this earlier this morning and I've been doing TV a really long time, and we've never had a picture of a guy sticking his tongue at entire team before this. This is a this doesn't sum up this entire circumstance as well as anything possibly could buster they say a picture is worth a thousand words. That's a picture. That's worth a thousand words buster. What's your final word on this? That look. Major League. Baseball. I think moving forward. It feels like that they're going to be able to contain this in a better way. Now that discipline has been handed down. All right, we will see what winds up happening both of you. Thank you so much for getting up early with us this morning. We'll see you later through what happens in that today coming up next star power as the NBA returns tonight, and we have our own Charles Barkley and Stephen a live together coming up just a few moments. Oh, look at them very is chuck is ready to go and he made a crazy prediction on TV, last night. Wait till. You see this, it's all on the way next. Up. GEICO access to licensed agents.

David Duchovny: When the student is ready, the master is long gone

"Hi listeners it's ran. I'd like to recommend a podcast. Called twenty thousand hertz. It's a fascinating exploration of the sonic world us. The meanings of bird cools the power of silence twenty thousand hertz is a great compliment to the sensory experience of meditative story at the end of this episode. You'll hear a trailer from twenty thousand hats. Hope you enjoy and subscribe in one exercise. We drink it imaginary cup of coffee for months. I feel the shape of the mug in my hands. The weight of it i grasp the handle and There's the heat. I can feel the heat. I smell the rich smoky. Aroma coffee tasted on my lips. I spend hours doing this. My latin is pretty good. But this is all greek to make acting forces me to use all of myself. Not just my mind my body my heart and i love it like i love basketball and baseball. It's not carrying cancer but it feels important. Feels good to me. I started to realize how much energy. I spent keeping busy trying to move faster than my feelings. But here they want me to slow down to feel everything they demanded. I could see now. My previous academic success was also somehow performative posturing but now inhabiting a different more primal. Maybe even more authentic part myself. And so i make call kind of i subtly abandoned my doctoral thesis telling anyone and i decided to become an actor without telling any. I grow up watching david company on tv as a teenager in the nineties. His depiction of folks mulder in the x files had a big impact on me and made me realize lewis. Actually okay to think differently and over twenty years later as hank moody in california kitchen. He won't golden globes for both roles. I learned even more. So it's a real treat for me that day. It is today storyteller as an actor. One of david's talents is creating characters with a calm on how center despite having in his own life experience enormous pressure and the need to move fast in. Today's meditative story. David chaz with us a pair of moments in his early life when keeping up a frenetic pace pushes him to the brayton point until respite comes in the form of a very special teacher in the series. We combine immersive pheasants toys and birthday. He music with the science back. Benefits of mindfulness practice From wait what and thrive global this meditative story out the okaido. I like to take a moment here to let you know that. Salesforce is providing the resources to make metaph story possible for the third consecutive season. It's essential to us that the sponsor of this series builds platforms that improve the state of the world intangible railways salesforce ventures its investment arm has announced its second impact fund to invest in next generation entrepreneurs who using cloud based technology to reskill workers for jobs of the future create access to clean energy bill tools that promote equal opportunity for women and other underrepresented groups and increase efficiency and transparency for social sector organizations. And we think that's pretty awesome The body relaxed the party. Breathing your senses. Open your mind. Open meeting the world it's just me and four other boys here and over working in our jackets and ties. Our desks are the old fashioned kind with each little desktop bolted to the chair. Every time someone leans back. I hear the slow creak of metal. We're in ap lap in advanced placement class taught by mr rogers on the fourth floor of what we call the old building. The dark marble stairs leading up to the classroom are warranted slopes on both sides upstairs and downstairs from generations of boys running up and down a marker of time like rings on a tree. This school is the oldest continually run school in america founded by the dutch in what was new amsterdam as we wait for. Mister rogers to get here in class to begin we have fun. Translating the bg's current hit more than a woman into latin. Plus quam for meena plus famiy me. He more than woman more than a woman to me. Mr rogers comes in and we stopped singing. We're supposed to be reading virgils. Aeneid out loud all of it. Books one through six in the original latin. Obviously we've been at it all semester. I can translate the words well enough. But i'm just not getting the rhythm this other kid. His nickname is general joker. He's not a great student as you might guess never does much work but he can read this stuff in nails. The cadence the deck tillich examiner. Armagh were room clay. I sing of the arms and the man just has it and as he reads aloud mr rogers at they say latin is a dead language not spoken but not the general joker not to mr rogers. I'm a successful student. I got chickenpox over spring break second grade and didn't miss a day. I've never missed a day of school. Partly out of fear that i'll get left behind in math or something or miss that one day in class where they teach us that indispensable thing on need for the rest of my life like the quadra equation life would spiral downward without the protagoras theorem. We all know this really. I just prefer to be out of the house ever since the divorce. It feels pretty raw home quiet moslem. No music not much laughter. And i don't want deal so my way of dealing is a great student a great athlete. Busy busy busy. I gotta be out of the house. Ap english history and latin captain of the basketball and baseball teams one day. I'm in mr rogers office going over some work with him. he knows. I've only taken his class. So i can get the college credit. I'm not in love with latin. And i don't hear it's music like general joe creek. He's talking and i'm not saying he says you're not me but i don't know that you're listening to me when he looks at me is like you think you're fooling everybody but you're not fooling me. There were rumors leather queen down in the village. Apocryphal knows. we don't really know what that means. But we have an idea so this makes him a mystery and vaguely exotic even dangerous leather. He's got red hair heavily. Flecked with grey thick reddish grey moustache. He wears a rust colored. Corduroy jacket will ties the square off at the bottom average height trim i can see the square hills of his boots as he leans back with his feet up on the desk. You might think he's relaxed. But i know better. He has a laugh. Like a dog's bark so sudden it seems to surprise even him when it comes out it's as unexpected as his temper I can't figure out at all. Here's me totally off balance. I can't psych him out. I can't charm him. I can't outworking most of my teachers. Love me mr. rogers is tough on me. He sees right through my working to please others. Most of my teachers call duke. He doesn't play that game because david It's well known in the meditation world especially in zen at the best teachers can be the most surprising he didn't always need to be soft and gentle to show love to others or ourselves. Sometimes it takes real pesonality to help point out the pots of us. We avoid or no me One damn a bit of an extra hurry and it's the middle of basketball season. I have a game that afternoon. We really good. We've only lost one game all year passing through the wide hallway. That connects the old building to the new building. My european history teacher is absent today so classes canceled and gone to the six four library to study as i round the corner. I see the elevator doors about the close. So i run my backpack banks against my shoulder. The doors start to close. I stick my arm and the gap between them to trigger them to open but the door shuts on me. I try to get my arm out from between the doors. But i can't. It's just stuck there for it. Seems like minutes. Start to panic. Is this elevator gonna go up and take my arm off. My arm is still inside it and it hurts but the doors eventually open. My arm comes free. And i'm safe inside the elevator but i'm breathing fast from running and from fear i might lose my arm. My book backdrops for my shoulder to the elevator floor. And when i lean over to get it everything goes suddenly dark when i come to. The first thing i think is who i'm late for school and then no. I'm pretty sure. I went to school this morning. And then i opened my eyes and spit out a huge mouthful of blood. I'm dragged from the elevator by my feet into the library. Still not sure what's going on to librarian flits in with paper towels admonishing me not to spit blood on the road. I see another kid a friend of mine bradley. His dad's a dentist. I tell them as i spit another mouthful blood and teeth. I think i'm going to your father. My close friends have been alerted. They keep me company in the nurse's office we're laughing. My mother who teaches at another school not far from here eventually arrives. My friends scattered like cockroaches. When she appears fara five. My mother cries. What did you do to my beautiful teeth. So i start crying because i've ruined my mother's teeth. I mean she made those for me but my teeth really the least of it. The schools worried. There's something wrong with me. Like maybe i've had a heart attack or stroke so they call for an ambulance. I spent three sleepless days in intensive care face and lips are completely swollen and cut. My back hurts. Miss my friends. I miss basketball. I'm eager to get back to school. My third morning in the hospital in walks. Mr rogers latin teacher his literally the last person i expect a visit from most everyone else's school sumed. I'd be okay. I guess but here he is. He pulls up a chair and sits by my bed. His grace red hair is parted to the side. seventy style. i figure he's thinking. Wow have you messed up. Look at you in that very roman. That's not what he says. And he's looking at me with genuine concern. Softer look than i've ever seen from him. What he says is you know. You don't have to come back. What i think is what i have. No idea what he means. So i just not once again. I'm not outing but i don't understand. So he goes on your coaches and your teachers. They're all gonna watch you to come back as soon as you can. you don't have to. You can take your time take my time. That's the last thing i'm gonna do. I'm going to get back there as soon as i can say that. Damn i just keep nodding. I'm back on the basketball court by the end of the week. The doctors find nothing wrong with my heart or my head. My mom blames it all on the fact that i hadn't eaten breakfast so every day for the rest of my senior year i wake up to the biggest omelette on my plate and whether i'm hungry or not she will stare at me until i eat it. I finish the year strong. Get into the ivy league university. I want get some decent fake teeth. And i never faint again is a cold spring day and princeton my freshman year of college. And i'm surprised to see mr rogers approaching the ball. Field is the end of practice. And we're just working on drills skills. Bunting pickoffs the sound of wooden bats and the ball popping and eleven glove like music. I don't know how found me. The baseball field is walk from the middle of campus. To find it. You really have to know where you're going and want to be going there. Maybe he's had some business with the school. But i can't imagine what we sit on. These calls cement bleachers and talk. It's awkward. he's not an easy guy for me. To spend time with the conversation doesn't flow and we don't really have a history. I'm a little embarrassed to be sitting here in a baseball uniform. Like you'll think it's silly that in this brand new chapter of my life as an adult. I'm still playing a kid's game. I know he thinks sports are silly but apparently he just wants to say hi. Check in on me. Which is disarming. We don't discuss anything of substance that i can remember after he leaves. I don't think of him again for a long time. I'm on the path to becoming an academic on schedule and according to plan. But who's plan. I graduated from princeton. Go onto grad school at yale where i worked toward a phd literature. But i need to make three thousand dollars this summer. I set out to get a bartending job. When a friend of mine an actor says you know if you book a commercial you can make that much money in one day now. That sounds good to me. So i'm like i'm in. How do i do that. Introduces made was agent. Who agrees the semi out for commercial auditions but if i want any theatrical auditions she says i need to take classes acting classes a revelation for me. They ask us to do things. I've spent my whole life trying not to do crying. Yelling big loud losing control my emotions not following rules. They want all that here and there's no repercussions like in the real world. No one cries. If i l no one dies if i act a fool in one exercise we drink imaginary cup of coffee. For months i feel the shape of the mugging. My hands the weight of it. I grasp the handle. And there's the heat. I can feel the heat. The smell the rich spoke of the coffee tasted on my lips. Spend hours doing this. Latin is pretty good. But this is all greek to me acting forces me many use all of myself. Not just my mind. My body heart and i love it like i love basketball and baseball not curing cancer. But it feels important. Kills good to me start to realize how much energy i spent keeping busy trying to move faster than my feelings but here they want me to slow down to feel every time they demanded i could see now. My previous academic success was also somehow performative posturing but now inhabiting a different more primal. Maybe even more authentic part of myself. And so i make the call kind of i subtly abandoned my doctoral thesis telling anyone and i decided to become an actor without telling whatever that means to a twenty six year old grad student I'm in santa. Monica living in a tiny one room sublet kind of hot plate into my dishes in the tub. I sleep on an odd circular couch. Bit loved this radio apartment. It's four blocks from the beach and has nice little french windows and the weather is always good for this city. Boy it's la. I'm not having much success. Most people down. But i'm not used to that. I feel like an abject failure i have no job i have no money. I have the flu. I'm weak almost delirious. Raw i fall to my knees and start crying. The word that comes to me is help. I don't know who i'm asking help from my just know i need and in that moment i think about mister rogers. He said i didn't have to come back. And i think i finally understand what he meant by. It can take your time. I've been running this race based on other people's expectations performing for other people. But i haven't defined my own measure success afraid of maybe what. My mom will say about being a superficial actor of winding up in the gutter. Which is what. I've always thought happens. We don't get those degrees when you don't get all as donna ten every class. It's like i'm back in. Ap latin envious of general. Who had rhythm reciting virgil with perfect rhythm. mr rogers. It seem that about me how much i needed approval pat on my head quality. He was speaking to when he is so hard on me. At least that's what i think he meant. I thought he just didn't like me now. I think he might have been concerned for me. And i'm still so needy for approval only instead of as it means getting jobs and good reviews but mr rogers was trying to tell me just beyond your time. No amount of approval grades. Money or notoriety is ever going to fill that if that's your motivation you're never gonna where you want to go. There's no end to that. It's nowhere and you can't get nowhere i think. Wow that's a real teacher. He tried sharing that lesson with may so many years ago. But i wasn't ready to get it. And now i am. I want to say thank you so i resolved to see him next time. I'm in new york city to thank him. But this is before the internet and a teacher slash leather queen must be pretty good at covering tracks and guarding privacy. He no longer teach is he's retired. I'm told eventually i learn from general. Joe korea ball people that he died of aids a few years earlier and i feel great loss. I can't tell him hey. Ten years ago you sat by my hospital bed. When i was seventeen and said take your time finally taking my time trying to and i understand now i get if you could go say something to the u. of ten years ago what would it be. And how do you think the young you would have taken it. I'm not sure taken my advice to be honest. How about you. They say when the student is ready the master will appear. But i'm not sure that's always true. It seems to me that when the student is ready master is sometimes long gone. I don't know what mr rogers would make my career or what he would have said to me. If i thanked him he might have told me to bug off. But i don't think so. I think you might have barked laugh at me. I don't think it matters. The bottom line is that he let me know that he saw something in me and he tried to help god if we could do that for one another more often Son is applied to colleges. Now he's writing these essays personal essays and i catch myself wondering. Why do we make them do this. We ask these kids to write as if they're the people they're going to be. They don't know who they're going to be. I want do is grab him from school. Just go on a road trip. Say forget all that. But you don't have to go back. Take your time Thank you david just a moment. I'll guide you through closing meditation fest. Though i want to acknowledge salesforce and their sponsorship of meditative story while you may know them for their role in bringing companies and customers together salesforce also works to improve the state of the world but sharing the stories of leaders who are making positive changes. They believed in meditative story before we even had office listener. Now eight million cost downers later. We i especially grateful to salesforce for making this series possible. Take your time. So with mr rogers in mind. Let's take our time to settle into a short meditation together and breathe like you have nowhere to go letting your breath behalf is and your belly. Be comfortable lending hang out no one. Judging you enjoying the belly breathing the belly taking its time being itself breathing. A bit more fully feels okay. The pace of your graph its depth. An indicator of how. You're taking your time. No rush just this. Take your time wherever you are in your day. At the beginning at the end somewhere in between they will be part of the mind. The planning mind thinking about what could happen next what we need to do. It might be full. Blame thought all just a little movement of the mind. Non verbal subtle. Take your time breath. Steady long and let go of the need to worry about. What's next enjoying instead. just this. And the echoes of david story. Through your pay take your time. So as we close he knew. I realize now while david didn't get the chance to thank mr rogers while alive his sharing. The story is such a wonderful way to do it in a different way so my to you is to think of a teacher or someone else who showed you something that made a difference to your life and understanding. Mr watches did david and say thank you name. Them silently and offer them your. Thanks take your time to think of who will be for me. It was a schoolteacher. Mr keat who spotted early interest in. Why people and coaches do what they do and shed some books with me that Curiosity that you know probably sat me on the path. The ends up with me here with you. So who is it for you. Bring them to mind and with as much of your being as you can say. Thank you whisper if you like. Thank you Thank you david. Thank you as. You're probably be. Mr rogers david one day. If you haven't been vetting we reach the end of meditation. At the beginning of the episode. I describe salesforce. Benches one hundred million dollar impact and whose goal is to invest in entrepreneurs who are helping to build a more just economy accelerate us to equality improve how and turn around climate change. This impact fund is about enlightened leadership. And that's something we need now more than ever in one way or another. We all want the same things whether are leading an organization or family. What's required about his grit and resilience seemingly incompatible qualities at the very same time. And so i want to share a micro step from sales forces. Be well together series. That might help. Think of your brain like a battery. He only have a certain amount of power every day. And the state of your battery is determined by range of factors from sleep nutrition and exercise to how you manage your time and the decisions you make when your brain is fully charged. You'll play him. The top of your game but when your battery is drained you're more likely to make errors in judgment and be less able to connect with others in meaningful ways whom coworkers to friends and family today. Try to identify your top stressor signals. That are the warning signs they owe battery is depleted. Common signals are rapid heart rate difficulty focusing negative feelings when you know to see stress signals at minimum. Close your eyes for ten minutes and think of a person place activity that brings you back to you. If you can cancel meeting or an errand they can just as easily due tomorrow. Maybe the next simply switch one video meeting to a phone call so that he can walk around paps outside and with that simply dear. We'll bring the say to close. Thank you salesforce for committing your influence in dollars to funding entrepreneurs who are making our lives better and for providing wellbeing resources.

Effectively Wild Episode 1433: A Pitcher and Catcher Report

"Wonder the Sherman to join the low and welcome to episode fourteen thirty three of effectively wild baseball podcast from fan grasp presented by our Patriot supporters I am Ben Lindberg of the ringer joined by Sam Miller of Espn Palo Sam and today. We're GONNA do something that we've been planning to do all season and use a couple times GONNA ADO in Atlantic League episode. We've talked a bunch of times about all the different rules changes that have been discussed and implemented or ultimately not implemented in the Atlantic League at this year as most of you probably know the antiquated has served as sort of a testing ground in partnership with Major League Baseball. It's been a place to try out some rules changes that are intended. I did too short and the game or make it more exciting in some way increase contact everything from computer called strike zones to bigger basis to changes and how you you have to do a pickoff move and whether foul Bunsen two strikes counter strike outs and whether you can just run to I whenever you want to if the ball gets away but we've just been speculating leading and analyzing from afar and we have wanted to talk to players who have actually experienced this themselves and today we are lucky enough to be joined by two of them. I'm from Somerset Patriots. One of them has been on the show before he is not easily. He is a pitcher and he joined us last December to talk about his improbable apple feat of striking out Williams sto twice in a Venezuelan Winter League Game Rick Welcome back. Thanks guys I appreciate it. Thank you for having me go to be back and we are also joined is by one of his catcher's. Giovane Gonzales Heo von Hello. How're you doing good so both of you? Guys have been around the block a bit in baseball. You've been in affiliated baseball. You've been in the Indie Leagues. This is your third or fourth season with Somerset for both of you. You've been in foreign leagues played in Winter Leagues. You've been everywhere done everything but a lot of the stuff you've experienced. This season has been new even for you so I'd love to hear a little bit about how you first found out what was happening the season I and what you thought at the time whether any aspect of it was appealing or whether you were worried about it whether you consider not going so walk us through that I guess Rick you can go first so about three weeks before season started when the news kind of broke and it broke on a different circuit he was baseball America broke the news that there are all these rule changes in or immediately. I try to get in contact with pitching coach in our manager says to try and see if it was true and it seemed like it was almost news to those guys as well so it was very weird. The rules that we were hearing were very weird and didn't really know how to feel about it. Just kind of try to wait to get more info and as the Info came in you know obviously the initial reaction was pretty angry that we found out when we found out and also you know not sure if some of these rules were actually going to be implemented like the sixty two feet and all that stuff but yeah just try to gather as much information as we could see what was real and what wasn't iovine. What did you think I think when you heard just like you say if I just find out they short period of time like you know so many rules and I actually have no oh kind like I just came in and saw the second half they started so I don't know nothing about like I didn't know that the that the rules are going to be putting in place yeah was it appealing at all that there would be a lot of attention on the league and that there would be track man and said there would be data data if big league teams were looking at you guys? Was that a selling point Oh that was what they were trying to sell initially and part of that is like okay. That's great like Now teams will know like I told you guys in my last interview. I don't know my spin rate is teams will know that information but to the cost of what some of these rules obviously you can Komo pickoff rules where guys can just take base standing up. Basically it's been very tough because to a certain point you're trying to put up good numbers as you can to get Outta Outta here. Get you know get signed overseas or back ten clubs so those those I feel like those have always played a usual now these other numbers. I don't know what kind of role they would play so we just kind of had to see how it played out this year so I imagine that part of the frustration is simply not being involved in the decision at all about basically the the sort of message that it sends that this is a lab that you're the rats but part of the frustration I imagine is also with no lead note. No prep time you don't have a chance to you kind of adjust or or practice or prepare for these changes if you had had a lot more time to get used to them. Do you think it would have been easier to make the transition addition would have been less frustrating. Are these things that a player can. I guess that's the question. Are these things that a player can adapt to after he's already been playing baseball for twenty me years in professionally for five or ten. I do believe that it is you can adapt some of these things for sure if you have time to work on them in practice them righties. I I know have to step all the way off for pickoffs. lefties have to step off pickoffs that would be something that would be very easy to work on but you would need time to work on it to get used to doing it in a game so there's things like that but certain certain other things like you know they they still talk about moving amount back that would be tough to track man zone. None of us really knew what to expect with that and being able to throw a few bullpens into it before actually being thrown into a game would have been good so there's a certain aspects where yes you could train to be more prepared for it but doing it on the fly has been most of the frustrations for all players whether it's pitchers or hitters in this league. I think iovine would agree with that. was there any organized pushback or I I mean. Are you guys in a position as you know as as basically independent contractors where you are sort of like powerless to do anything. Can you yeah I mean I imagine there was groaning. was there any any pushback to like sort of at least limit what they were GonNa do with. You guys yeah we I I aspect of anything like that. Even though I was confused by the rules and not not in the same page with I was already here and I signed a contract I was like I was one of the early things that was implemented that affected both of you. I guess we'll go over each each of these rules but the removal of mound visits. I wonder how that has affected each of you. If at all rick have you missed that it has it cost you anything well. I'm very much. I like to keep to myself and be in my own head. There's a lot of times where I don't like being visited on the mound so I think I like that too. An extent I liked that but being able to talk to your catcher me being able to talk to you in the middle of a game show briefly quickly not having that has definitely affected things. I know you can go up and switch signs if you think they're trying to pick signs or something like that but for the most part not being able to talk to your catcher you know I think they could change that to where enough visits from the catcher should be allowed and I know you'll be agrees with that yeah. What do you think of that? How do you communicate with your pitchers? If you can't go out and talk to them I I really can't just comes from the from my stand catching. Tell them Kinda like make the the woman just kind of like thanks so I can talk to them but just like that's what I that's what I would like it because he's just Kinda like you get to be the relationship in I'm Pyre Patriots action brought to me like they're just thank you so. Do you talk more between innings and say here's what we're GONNA do with this guy and that guy since you know you you can't talk during the only kind of like go to report scouting report like whatever happened. He's not gonNa Make Gupta home. I picture like we sometimes we use it to like great. I even read on my bed revenue. We had to come out and he picture a little breather like I now none of that also will affect how good a patrick is definitely on the pitcher to slow the game down himself or yet. You'll you'll have to signal out to me certain you know body movements or body keys to say hey make sure you're staying close a mixture rather than calling time and say Amen Relax slow down. You know we got this next guy up. We know we're trying to do with him. Let's go after this way. It's all like boom that innings going to happen and you can't talk about it until after that innings over with so that's why it's a little more difficult. I've never really thought about out that the the the visit to the mound is kind of more of a catcher skill like I've always thought of it is just sort of pitcher and catcher doing that together but really it's usually it's the catcher actor who instigates that walk out to the mound. It's the the Catcher who sees something. It's probably the pitcher a Lotta Times doesn't even feel like he needs a visit but the catcher needs soon and also the catcher is responsible for maybe a dozen pitchers whereas the pitcher is only gonNA throw a maybe two catchers a year and so maintaining that relationship throughout a start when he's got so many different even pitchers is probably really important for the catcher so did it feel like it was taking something away from your tool Bellio v that that you as a as a catcher couldn't do that. I look for sensor on. I only because like little coach from it. which is you know what I mean like out there? I I'm going to be the guy like be the guy I work every day with him and I know what he's good at and I know when you strongly with I I'll be able to see that I know I can say because of visits I something say we've we've talked about in the past talk about Buster Posey being able to control a pitching staff and and really really be in touch with his pitchers and work with them and definitely Yovany as a guy. That's that's that's one of his biggest skills is being able to work with the pitching staff and being able to tell the pitcher what he's doing wrong and fix it during a game and it's taking that skill away from that position from guys who were very good at doing that so what was the attitude like in the clubhouse kind of as the season went on where people upset at first at it affects morale on on the team and then did people get used to it and then when the new changes happened in the middle of the year to start a another round of people grumbling about things I mean did it affect kind of the atmosphere around the league the season. I think it has a big it has it's pretty much you hit on the head with what you said there art there was frustration at first about the rules happening and then as they're being implemented in you're seeing the results and you're seeing numbers slip and you're seeing you can see the frustration. He's not only within your own team but you watch the other team. Just now it's the same way with some of the pitcher called strikes or balls and you can tell a lot of built up frustration and you know it's it's been in a long season as the season goes on starts. Get worse and worse so yeah. It's been a strange year for the league. I would say strange we find now we find out nobody was like it was more like about because we don't play these games on wrong aw that team may be not be ready to overtake and thinkers apple the you like people going to see him just because you can find that you cannot work out to get better also like you just how you GonNa beat the that's sometimes you stay. Go like must sees more. My thought is being you like this. The detract which is like go out there is the track man beatable because right now is not because maybe maybe a little maybe maybe next year we have a little more than maybe maybe in case like something through the treatment but I would. I'm trying to the treatment though since Taylor and that gives news yet take away or take away at W. or or take away to make sure that union pool and other Soda You Wanna I've been told by their loans attracting cove it and you already one one. He's just like you concentrate simply changing approach approach me. I feel like every time I go to hell. I give away one pick because he's GONNA be one. I leased one time. It's going that'd be one thing that'd be paying for twenty years so so what what is. What is the pitch that like when you're maybe when you're on defense when you're pitching in your catching what is the pitch that track man gives you that umpires give you if have you could like hit that spot with that pitch every single time like what could you? What could you take advantage of the system with on defense it will be back curve from a couple of quick? He doesn't have to actually like bows were almost caught it like my my Newton's catching the bulk four thousand and I get over so I'm not saying that I'm just saying these not ready yet right. Now I feel I have a better inform. Just put it out intimate bad mandatory and that's it like I don't know what do you think it's actually inaccurate inaccurate like it's not tracking the pitches right or do you think it's just that these pitches are technically strikes by the definition of the strike zone but they weren't usually called strikes in the past well to be feeling pitching that should be close tried balls in school strikes rush conflict and I I think he can get better because having attracted on a hot a couple of Baby Babe fragment off that threaten and makes hires. I'll eat it but we'll pitches that nobody call for strike. I making myself clear like like the attract my like. I said that's lighter back. Talk slider. It just like just below the storm takes goes by that's called for strike mighty five percent of the time and he's he's not he's not even a good person patient from the texture the catching catching on well like he's going off hanging like trying to catch the ball. I thought it happened to me. I go away from my ten like push my good prison on part. I'm just doing away with it. I just catch the pictures that I know don't even catching it because then so walk and getting all strikes so rick. Do you try to throw those pitches more often. Have you changed your pitch selection or look to take advantage of this for me. I'm a I'm a low arm slot lefty with a cutter decent changeup changeup and I like to pitch in so I don't have a big curve ball. I'm not a big tall guy throws from over the top and that's definitely the type of pitcher that the track men will favor guys has there over the top guys may not they just kinda spray the ball around the zone. Try and hit a spot. Guys are the big curb illegal flip it ended. It looks like it's about neck-high the catcher catches catches about at the chest and it's a strike or guy will almost bounce breaking bonnets strike but if you don't have that big breaking ball good luck pigeon of attract nick anything with side to side had movement. I'm almost convinced that there's no they have told us the black does not count as the plate and I'm pretty sure that in and out to guys you have to get the entire baseball and the strikes down because there are probably four or five pitches a game where I feel like I'm splitting the plate in half belt high with cutter. It's getting called ball and so it's tough from that aspect because I'll throw to those that are get called balls in. I'll try to throw it to change up that almost balances no call that a strike and you feel like you throw the change up to the next hitter in it's a ball all so it's a changes from hitter hitter based off of hide obviously but also based on what their height is inputted system. Some of the hitters heights are different than they actually are Dr within track men and then also changes a ballpark to ballpark and it changes day to day one day. You feel like you're it's actually it's actually giving you the inside after the plate and then the next day it's like oh no. It's not giving you an inside half but you'll get a little bit off outside to a righty so it's just the inconsistency was something we didn't expect because it's a machine but I would say by about the fourth or fifth inning you kind of know what's not going to be called a strike in what might be called a strike to certain hitters but it's just the fact that you kind of expected. I and I guess everybody kind of expected. That's what it is. There's the front of the plate. It's a box. That's what it's GonNa be all game every park every hitter and it's just been so inconsistent so you don't you just rather have an umpire calling it so given the there is no empire like your body. Language doesn't matter in the way that does when there's a human empire and there's no point in like sort of I like fighting for calls against a robot or anything like that and given that both teams are kind of going through this experiment when a call all is really surprising or when a crazy pitch goes for a strike or vice versa. Are you like making eye contact with the other team you guys rolling your eyes together. Is this kind of the shared experience between two teams. Absolutely I hand multiple times went bad happened. I'm taking even when I'm not. I'm Florida when I'm when I'm hating what I want to praise but when I'm catching I'm taking it's more about I want to say because I didn't take pride in my catching and he's like this is not even close at this. We got we got that thing to Pete. Lis plays people even high level players like doubled double-leg Japan Mexico. I mean all around the world good baseball really baseball and all of a sudden got a matching calling striving with calling pitches from people bet I've been is like you know like ways will forever. It's very much a shared experience. You see the other team Kinda laugh at a call or I've turned around rounding seen an empire just shaking his head obey smart shaking his head laughing. It's it has definitely and that's why that's why I say it's been such a weird years because you just kind of we're all going on this journey together and way what's going to happen today. What are we going to see today that we've never seen before? Let's let's see here we go and says why spins a strange. That's what I meant. When I say any weight call I'm like I'm not thinking about a right belt these days in put him away with a slider only like not wish missy what the treatment is today so now l? My Patriot wordy probably headers the headers and to track man so that's I mean that's been part of baseball in the past. Just because I'm Pires are different probably more different in the Atlantic League than they are in the big leagues. So is it more inconsistent than that or is it just that it's not as good as it should be because you're expecting it to be perfect because it's a machine well for new when I have I up alone an exchange down much with that but when I have on fires agreement we me and with like we talk and have conversation and all of a sudden. I tend to ask whoever I'm finding like how many how many times do you contentment news today and they go to send more multiple multiple calls from like we took him like a Lotta pictures horror movie meaning of ball back haul so it's just like I'd say like he's just uncles because he's making so much like like you said inches every pet feel whatever flooding deflationist six five all right so yeah I would say there's constituency with an empire knowing you're GonNa Pitch in. He's GonNa call the inside striker. Hook call low strike and both teams not that you know all the hitters be ready for that. You know inside strike. He's GonNa call it where there's going to be consistent and maybe some of them are balls but some more strikes the track Manet's from the hitter what it's going to be and it just that's why it's so inconsistent. Consistent is because you just it's just beginning stages. We all knew that and I'm sure we'll get better. I'm sure Polish it up but yes. It's just from hitter to hitter. There is no consistency consistency on the up on the down the end the out. You're just not sure you're just thrown up there and hoping that he swings. You've tried to persuade the empires to overrules the system. Is that something they can ever do. If it's really wrong now getting in trouble 'cause that's what they say no treatment final voice so I'm having like I say I'm Pires like Gordon the Third Reich for strike. Your pockets fired up about Humpty time. Didn't that guy I know and I was like quoting the three strike like I'm. I'm like what I have. I have a weight close to two seconds. WHO MAKE CALL I go to pick they want to call it? I tried right because you said get on the on the black little block. We're don't have black and Alpine is waiting for the call because he knows his strike and other sort of like a couple of seconds. I can use bought in the first thing you allow all my guy. He's like Yup and matching housing for controlling isolate controlling treatments controlling the game you know thoughtful as in all of a sudden the track my like I said I think they let a little bit so or wanting to be like we open balls. High balls rolled strikes well highs and all sorts of which is right in the middle of that are not getting cold so let me just like I dunno underdone if not rolling is they have it so the consistency problem I think everybody would agree like a serious flaw and that that theoretically if it needs to get better it needs to be consistent. That's the whole promise of it is that it's going to be consistent but part of it too seems to be that it doesn't call pitches. The way that umpires have called pitches like Rick you mentioned if a pitchers working inside a lot if that's where he works than you might expect to get a little more on that part of the play eight door that curve ball down at the bottom of the zone that is essentially impossible to hit but might be technically a rulebook strike. It seems like nobody really wants that pitch to be called or or maybe the three auto strike that sort of thing so do you think that there is if it were consistent if they calibrated it right from day to day Park to park batter to batter but the strike zone itself was just different because the rulebook strike zone is different than the the real life strikes has traditionally been. Would it still be something that would be really frustrating. Do you think you get used to it would we would we eventually get used to that curve ball at the bottom of the zone or is it just that the strike zone the rulebook looks like zone is is not the strike zone that the players actually want now. I think if it was consistent at every part every hitter and you knew exactly you know if I put this pitch today's needs. It's GONNA be a strike if I put it his chest. It's going to be a strike. You know if if I throw that cutter in that cuts in catches the plate it's going to be a strike. It was like that consistently. I don't think anybody could complain and that's kind of a lot of us expected. It was for me as a pit or my favorite rule. That was actually going to be changed. was there is going to be a computer. Call on balls strikes so now you know you don't you don't get you know messed up on anything. It's a nearby strike right. We all expected it to be booms. tuiti consistent and that's all we want is consistency right but you throw one game here. You throw another game in another park throwing a different hitters and you're realizing pretty quick like this isn't even this isn't the same day the day pitched a pitch batter to batter so that's the part that's been crushing but if he at like you said once it's polished two years down the road this could be something they use in the big leagues. If it's reading every pitch correctly or at least ninety nine percent of the pitches correctly it'd be something that would be great. I believe because of the consistency and we talked about how the the lack of mound visits has affected your job in your ability to add value in that way but the track men zone has also taken away your ability to steal strikes expend zone by framing receiving the pitches in a certain way and I wonder if that's something you're upset about if you missed miss that and how it has affected how you I miss it from what I was talking to cope with things go because he was one day that attract my could was working so news such a good team. I stayed in a a new cycle mystic because like I say presentation those people in defeating paint just personal taste different fishing. I catching the ball well putting into the part. That's what makes catch great like about threatening you can have choice and put them to catch. They have enough to to catch you can have whatever he's no. More framing is not more relationship are like what you're doing is just like treatment. I feel like he's whatever he's just this. Practice of. Strike doesn't even matter how you're catching so could take away so I feel like whatever content crack money's on on you can have whatever catch 'cause they're. They're just touching won't be like the there'd be just a be that fight to be a catcher Dow. How could you frame the ball? How how thank you communicate pitcher Cole timeout out to help when your paycheck and you just call timeout goal just check up that's related bill catching hatred and and to be honest that they're the key of the law north of a successful team teaching catcher is Keith Communication Umpire catch? These king for reimbursement for is being like that like you say. I feel like we just like maybe he's right because we never try it. I'm used to going on. Have you changed your catching technique because of that do still just out of habit present pitches the same way or do you try to get in position to throw at say and not even worry about how you catch the pitch that just stuff like for finding that guys Barton. I'm not worried about framing for five so I'm like on decidal alternative. I you know I'm GonNa pack more like square. Shoot the ball. I Five No. I'm like we can catch it. You don't have to frame it or not because he's oppose them so I'm worry about the person patient again. I'm changing. I changed his framing with hoping like okay. I'm there is mooning framing more yeah but one way I guess in which your job has gotten harder is that you have to worry about batters running to first base this gets by you so I know there was one game in July where you were playing new Britain and you were catching and the hitter on the other team Darren in Ford a ball got by you went to the backstop and he just refused to run even though he he could have gotten the first base and it was a scoreless game and his whole all team I think came to the top step of the dugout and applauded because he was refusing to to run is is this something that happens often. Is this like the least popular thing or two batters usually take advantage of that when they can. I haven't seen a at I've seen it in as many games as we've played. I've seen it at two or three times with probably a hundred opportunities also yeah play what aren't doing that. Guys aren't giving up their at bat to do that because like I said we're all trying to put up numbers prove that we can get out of here and play at a higher level or another level and yet guys and it says it's a bad. I don't if you're if you're batting in Still I mean you almost feel at you know how that would feel. You know you WanNa beat the Guy I WANNA compete. You WANNA compete. You WanNa hit kind of take account of walking discounts almost like no A. B. Like knowing that you're just on first base. They changed it to a Walker Sam the the change that at some point at at one point they changed it to a walk but I don't know they they changed it at least once I don't I think they changed it to a non it non bat because once they started changing its walks pitchers were like so you're telling me I can throw change up in the dirt for a swing and a miss and it gets by the catcher that guy can take I face and I think they've changed it out of that because it's not fair to kind of walk for that so yeah. It's just been basma weirdest rule in at least a least effective. I guess guys just aren't doing it and so what was it like for for the two or three times that you did say it. was there like is it considered like bad form to to do it at all. Would you do it in the ninth of a tie game. It feels really weird to have this really ambiguous rule out there that is technically on the books but that most players aren't GonNa do so when the couple of guys who did do it did do it like do people yell at Him Harris Ninth Inning Tie game a run that you had to have late in the game you know you're trying to be unselfish as a hitter. You Know Our coaching staff. Basically told hitters like you don't have to do this. I'm never going to get mad at you for not doing this game online I think about it you know if you thinking do it. You know go for it but yeah it's always when it does happen of course the team that does it. They're all going nuts and laughing and cheering here and the other teams just kind of smirking shaking their head. It's Kinda like the UMPIRES are laughing. It's weird typically a weird rule. Fans are going on not so I don't yeah it's just a strange. It's definitely a strange I'd actually does come into play. That is the weirdest possible thing you could describe to me in baseball aw there where it is only sometimes used and usually ignored and everybody has no idea whether it's going to be taken advantage of and it obviously helps your team and yet nobody on your team cares if you do it that it feels like more than anything else turns the season into this farcical farcical thing where like nothing really seems to matter and that's what we're telling you guys about how how strange of a season it it is. It's because there's so much of that every I mean even when they don't go a ball kind of trickle away from catch a little bit in the dugout that's batting. We'll start young. Go go go go and laughing aspen so that's been a rule I don't I don't know how long that'll stick around but it's been can't that's that's added to the strains of that on your mind every pitch Jovi. Are you elect trying to block everything because you know that could happen. I used to be a it'd be like ready to go and that's why chain again like getting ready to. That's a little too 'cause nobody could still i. What is the right action? They took us or framing. dollar-bloc won't put right yeah even more on board now so there's one more major rule change that I wanted to ask you guys about so the the basis are slightly bigger. That's been since the start of the season and but that didn't seem to change things too much but in the second half they changed the the pickoff rule so that now you have to step off the rubber before you can an attempt to pick off and since then the stolen base rate has just exploded by like seventy percent or more so I'd like to hear about that for are you break. I guess just about how difficult it's been to adjust to that different motion and then I'll ask Yo via about just trying to keep up with all the runners who were trenice deal now. We'll guys definitely getting bigger leads and when you're just watching games when you're watching guys pitch you just sing. Righties have no chance told a guy over. NFL The left has never worked on his snap off move. He's gotten a chance and a if you want to pick off multiple times in a row as lefty good luck 'cause you're gonNA wear are down your arm doing that because you're basically throwing a standstill position site throwing from your knees as hard as you can over to first base you know seventy feet whatever it is so that's difficult so I mean I found out about that rule between warming up for a game and going out to the national anthem after the home plate meaning manager came back and he goes up. They just told me you can't perfect I unless you step off one. He said Oh by the way you can't do the inside moved to second base either so I'm like okay so what now a single is just gonNA be automatic triple. How am I gonNA GONNA give up three or less? How am I gonNA have a quality start tonight and yet since then guys yard 'cause that's what it is guy can single deal seconds still third onto fidgets and what what is your Lovie GonNa do to stop it? I I gotTA traffic this guy off but I can't keep his lead small because he knows I have to step off the deal so it's tough for catchers because they can't throw anybody out. They have no time time Steph for pitchers because you know you're giving up a single and you might as well just balk them over to third. It'll be quicker so that's just been one of the toughest rule Stephen Deal with author offer pitchers and catchers do try to throw over Doodoo back picks Jovi. Can you do anything I like. I like to back to shoot up a going away anymore because they're like say they take such a big lead that I am actually I've been really successful peaking guys back peaking guys instead of throwing out I've taken. I think I'll be more successful back in guys. I then throwing them out. I'd say it's just like before. Vacations is due easterly. I'll be throwing from my knees. A lot is your cool. I feel like every time like I used to have like the back of my pocket every time they had like a job for my niece but knowledge is like every jump jump software like my normal throwing position two seconds from my niece. I've been going back ninety percent eighty five ninety percent of my yeah you don't have. I was just looking at this. You don't and have a stolen base yourself since two thousand twelve when you were in the Midwest League. Have you thought about going. I felt so many times about the time is just like I feel like it's something that I don. I don't need to but I mean he's right there for me. I am actually I think three chances this year and to foul both walk and the non was walk but how much I'm trying to go much we taking and I'm and I'm telling you I'm running much like seeing my cell haven't chance so that's something that obviously makes it a lot harder to be a catcher a lot harder to be a pitcher and I I'm sure they a new this when they put it in place and I don't know whether they thought enough about the balance between offense and defense and all that but I'm sure they did it because they thought oh well this might make the game more more exciting for fans in might make it faster pace it. Might you know we're going to have Yawovi run for goodness sake like there's something to be said for having a game. It's lively enough that your attempting three stolen bases so do any of these things beyond the frustration of what it's like for you on one side of the ball are any of the things that you think yeah no. I kinda see how this is my work for the game as a whole might work for the viewing experience might work for some other aspect of the game where there's some positive to it I mean I could there is positive because I track can get better and he's had any that gets better. I that's Ooh I would keep yeah because you could. I feel like we cannot take over talk. Money's okay we. It's like you can't be we love who doesn't but do occur like Stephen Ferris laddish who like to strike sponsor. You got like I strike out last night I that game I play I I for foul ball four times like the strikes how foul ball and then I fell on otherwise I mean that's just like I don't know but I think track will help the game which is like be more more out. There were homers more lenient more editors autumn bases like from everything is getting better or baseball pitches. A pension on is like no but it but I get it going to help to baseball like trachman expanded Basil. Hopefully what how about you rick is the is there anything about watching the games that has been beyond the frustration or beyond the confusion or the way it's been implemented where you've looked at it and thought thought this is actually kind of fun. I could see maybe the three batter minimum I think would be effective. Just to you know talk about speeding the game that would definitely be game up not allowing pitching changes every batter too late in the game. You know some bases being bigger. I don't know if that's even made a difference at all but a similar yeah just tough a sound so negative on this phone call about these rule changes just because I think we're all frustrated with how they've gone and you know it's the beginning stages of most of them. I think they'll tweak and change things L. Tweak and change the track man. It'll be better but that yet once they once they Polish up the track man I really do think it will help an elbow level you know but they just yeah I gotta see the data. I see the strikes on. Maybe put design on the scoreboard. Wear both teams know where the pit messed so stuff like that but you know the testing testing this stuff when we knew that we just like like we talked about in the beginning. We didn't much notice and I think as we've been a lot less frustrated. They knew what they were getting into before they signed to comply yum yeah so that part of that is that that communication and involving you know maybe involving. You guys a lot more in this. I I have to admit I kinda like weird things and and so there's there's part of this that I think I'm glad that they're not afraid to try new things as long as it's implemented correctly and as long as they're kind of good ideas the right ideas we have like the running the first thing from the start it was sorta seemed like that was a disaster but I do like at least I like that. They're thinking gang like the game can be tweaked. Net certain behaviors might be incentivized a little bit more so if they keep going with this sort of broad experiment of trying trying new things. How would you recommend that they just do it differently? In years. Two three four onwards would say lead players know early on you. Oh guys start signing in December. They start picking where they're gonNA go to play their season. They decide that December get a roster spot to have a spring training invite and and I think all the rules need to be laid out right there in December so that we know I mean we I signed my contract in early. January and I think I've found out in late March in March what was going on and and it's just tough because if you didn't want to be a part of it if they were actually moving around back to sixty two and I was out I was not going to do it and at that point. What are you GONNA do? Call a few teams and see who still Azer Rock. You know you kind of take. Whatever's left in their salary cap? You gotta just sign for that and play for you know you. You Guys Know Minor League baseball players. Don't make much already so you put in that position. That's really tough the metal community fan because what it what everybody's playing with and acting you know completely get better in the future and be better he you both said better communication but neither of you sort of said that it was important. Let you be involved in the decision itself. that they consult with players on what sorts of things they should try which seems to me like a pretty good idea is not not as important to you. If if are you willing to Kinda just go out on the field and play whatever the game is that that the league lays out for you as long as you have kinda some a time to prepare and get used to it or is it really important that players to some degree are involved in deciding what the sport is is is GonNa look like that year. I think it's very important to involve the players and that's the reason I say that is because honestly it hasn't seemed like they'd been considered. Consulting was players. It's something that at this point I think cross the line that it's going to be ousted because cook chill locker room and I think we all the guys that growing out blatant game and off quote we had replacing now this guy just go back and forward to the president of the League like you guys about that thought about this and I was like Oh my God because he's truly glove rules. Nobody knew about it. You guys my knew about it a long time ago and somebody mentioned it but like I can't you just and moral got him. It was was that guy's biggest argument he was a big league guy with a lot of big time and he was saying basically. Did you even asked baseball players any players in this league or anybody that's played baseball. They thought it would be good for baseball to steal first base or not able to pick off and you know that's the thing they didn't and and the response was basically it's not up to us. They signed this deal. It's up to the MLB. They're going to implement whatever they want. We're GONNA play it and so just it's not an option for us to be a part of the decision making we just like to know what the rules are going to be before we signed the contract I travel and I think signed a three year deal with the Atlantic League so presumably this stuff is going to happen again next year at least some of it or maybe they'll try my new things so having been through this experience once. Do you think you would be interested in going back to you. Think many players will be hesitant to go back but next year or is it just that you know for so many guys. It's the best option financially and competitively so you you just kind of do it. Regardless adds definitely the best oxygen you know because of other overseas jobs in MLB jobs at the same time seeing how it's happened this year with the abruptness of the rule changes is and you know like second half we know they're gonNA be new rules in the second half and it was just hey welcome back. Enjoy your break. These are the rules and going through that once is enough off enough for. I think a lot of guys to be like you know what I don't WanNa do that again. I don't WanNa see what they're gonNA. Do you know maybe they'll lesson December. What's going on but then Dan you know three weeks into season? They'll introduce another six rule changes. That are crazy just seeing how they've done it already. It doesn't seem like it matters whether or not the players know what's going on there already ear their ear. Make them do it so I think they're going to have trouble finding a lot of guys that they want plan this league next year with the way they went about the rule changes. This year has my opinion. I'm not so we go downhill team. They will lose players because so the last thing I wanted to ask is about that one rule that did not get implemented much to your relief. I guess the Mount Distance Rule and rick like you just said that. If that had happened you would left so I'm curious about why that is and what you think the effects of that would be well. It's because as you know we're all here like I've said a million times to get out to try and go to Asia. MLB and all those leagues pitch from sixty feet are sixty feet six inches to come pitch where it's sixty two feet six inches. I don't know I tried to do the math on how much more reaction time a hitter will have it. Basically turns earns a ninety mile an hour fastball. I'm about an eighty four hour fastball yeah there could be more depth but it gives them also more time to see the spin on the ball. I thought about that for days and weeks aches and really said you know what I want to be part of. That just came up now. It's not GonNa do anything for me. At this point in my career turning twenty nine next year to be part of a mound move move back and just to see what happens to to the pitchers arms or see how it plays to your stuff is just something that at and maybe if I was twenty two I would want to try it if that's what was GonNa Happen in baseball but at the same time I think it's going to be hard for the MLB to ever get the players union to vote. Yes on that so it's a chance at they're we're GONNA do that. I don't think we'll ever happen. I don't think will impact my career in a positive way. I think it will actually actually impacting negative way so it's something that I won't do that. I I know a lot of guys will say I won't do it. I won't do it and they might but I really do think there'll be a high percentage of guys that are just at this point in their careers when they'd be in the Atlantic League with they'll be experienced already you know approaching thirty or over thirty that just won't be a part of that so I'm curious Yawovi. You're a hitter in so you would benefit from it in that way and what if it were everywhere all at once and what if it were six inches or a foot instead of a foot and a half something more minor just because you know we are seeing guys throwing harder and harder and we're seeing bigger and bigger pitchers. Who are you know releasing the ball close to the plate and we're seeing more and more strikeouts so you know you can see how it might be a good idea if it were everywhere at once and if it were just a little bit at a time so what you guys think about that I agree with that or Baio the oath agreement? I agree a hundred percent so it was everywhere all at once and everybody was doing it then. That's just baseball. I think Mike Trout walgreens would agree with the MSCI strike I don't I don't think trial with one of the into strikes. I don't think my trial would want to steal. I first pinch while page. I`TS YOU'RE GONNA pay four million dollars to a guy that for one pitchy could could be a source face a while catch it like I wanted to get a boost in an like. I'd I want to make the fans. Just go down and I don't know actually like I said everybody got wild. When the First Guy Tony Komo's stole the first base like crazy like everybody was like Q. View in them all that stuff but that will baseball you know like I don't know I just I? I'm open mind through change each word. I'm I'm I'm thirty. I'm thirty now so it's just like you're almost back time that you've gotta like what you guy. Toby continues to Mike Puerto viewer thirty and prospects all right so rick you switch to the phone now but I want to ask you one more question before we let you go because there's one more rule change that the Atlantic League implemented this year that is not unique to the Atlantic League it was already in effect in the affiliated miners last year but it impacted you in in an unusual way because you had a game back into lie that was probably among the best and also the strangest that any pitcher in pro bowl has had this year you pitched nine imperfect innings pitched nine perfect innings and the game was still scoreless and then you left the game because of the rule that says that a runner Hasta Start Art on second base in extra innings which you thought maybe would jeopardize the perfect game. Can you take us through what you're thinking as as you got to the end of this this game you knew you had the perfect game going on and he knew that this rule is going to come into play in the next inning. Oh man it was strange. I mean it was the ninth inning. I got that last out obviously do you WANNA celebrate but yeah zero zero game going into the bottom now so really hoping the team's going to score and and if they don't the plan is to go back in the game aiming manager came over and he says you know Rick that that's it hinders shake my hand and I said No. You're crazy. If I'm coming out this game and you mentioned that I hadn't even thought of that. He mentioned it. Here's Rick. They're GONNA put a gun second base. Start the ten. The perfect game is over nine innings has happened. You can never take it away from you per game and soon as you take them out again so we're going to get a guy who's fresh. She's not at one hundred pitches. We're GONNA win this game and yeah very very weird. Emotions teammates were all surrounding the kind of nodding like yeah. Take it take it get out of there definitely a weird that was just praying for the walk off after that but unfortunately end up losing and just a very strange vibe adopt sure yeah well. Do you think that that is right. I mean should a perfect game be disrupted by an automatic runner on second because obviously that's not a base runner that you've allowed. It hasn't marred your perfection. It's kind of like a philosophical question. I guess if a perfect game is it keeps everyone off base and maybe it's not perfect but in terms of your own performance and personally preventing people from reaching base that still perfect yeah yeah. That's a strange way to look at it Is it still a perfect game. I'm not sure I think that they'll they'll probably also roof that becomes a rule or even just from now on in the future in the minor leagues or Antic League on the tenth inning either. You know if somebody's got a perfect game going making an exception where the guy doesn't start at second base at at that point. I don't think about the game over with They Wanna see what happens for. You know obviously also the rules. Were a if there is a guy put on Bait. It doesn't ruin the perfect game but yeah in that situation. I don't think anybody thought that that was going to happen. You know how often does that happen work that goes into the perfect gang so definitely something nobody thought of and hopefully hopefully got out there and that's something that's thought about brought up in the next meeting for Atlantic League rules or future and they'll be rules yeah and there's never been a perfect game in the Atlantic League so no one was really prepared for this and there was a similar case in high A. Last year so a minor league game the Tampa tarpons and and I think that was a seven inning game because they were playing a double header but it was the same sort of thing where they went into extras and so there is a question of whether it would be perfect or not and and I saw on twitter that Cory Schwartz who's an executive at MLB he was talking to Jj Cooper from Baseball America there and JJ Kufuor's wondering if they would have to to change the rule to make that a perfect game and Schwartz said no need to wait. I can tell you right now. Auto runners don't count against a perfect game or no hitter and Nj said is that documented somewhere and Corey said that I don't know but we've reviewed and confirmed this previously this year with the necessary authorities so evidently in the minors I don't know if this applies to the Atlantic League but someone at MLB has thought of this and apparently they would call it a perfect game if it turned turned out to be which in the case of that game it didn't cause. I think someone reached on error in the next inning and in your game there is another pitcher who came in to replace you and there is a single single that was allowed but I guess potentially if the rules would be the same than maybe it's still could have been perfect if you had gun beck out there and pitched another perfect day I it. It's hard to say because they're in unprecedented territory here but it seems like maybe they have some kind of carve out for the extra runner rule in those situations right. I'm I'm glad they figured something out and that's out there now. I'd say even even so does the Games. It's a perfect game no hitter don't put a guy on vague well more specifically perfect again. Don't put the guy on face to face the perfect game right out I mean what's the likelihood of going fifteen perfect innings. I don't think anybody do that but for at least the tenth inning let it happen right would've been fun to see but you know I still take an accomplishment. I try to say you know what I went on. I did you know what I can do and I know guys are busting their butts out there. They made some great place so you're not gonNA complain about that. They saved it more than once so definitely still a great experience to have done that. I guess these days it's pretty rare for anyone to go nine. Innings let alone tend attend and in the big leagues probably a guy with one hundred ten pitches. They might not let him go back out there so I don't know how often this would happen because it's rare enough to get nine perfect innings and then even rare for someone to be allowed to go back out there with that Kinda pitch count yeah absolutely but once in a lifetime I think guys with trying to do it with old school. Guys would say we draw one hundred seventy pitches every outing so you can mustered up enough adrenaline to try and get it done. I'm sure one ball in two strikes to out nobody pretty on top of the night the fans at Td Bank ballpark begin to rise to their feet into to strike clap. They know what's what's happening the one to one on a soft grounder back to the mound love by teasingly Sorta first time twenty seven twenty any seven down for the first pitcher it Somerset Patriots it's three to do so that is a perfect nine innings innings Somerset South Paul well. You guys did not ask to be put in this position but maybe we'll learn something from it. At least you know even if it's what not to do and how not to do it so I guess you're trailblazers and you have a lot of stories to tell us and we appreciate your your. You're putting up with it all and and telling us about it because I think we learned a lot from hearing about it from players involved because it's easy for us to say Oh. This is a good idea. They should try this. They should try that but you guys are the ones who actually have to suffer the consequences so we appreciate your perspective. Thank you yeah good luck with the rest of the season so you guys thank you all right. Thanks to rick in Iovine for coming on and sharing the story their season that was I opening in certain respects. No one interesting thing about the season in the Atlantic League is that for all the upheaval and all these different rules the offensive environment has has barely changed at all last season. They were four point four nine runs scored per game this year four point five six walk rates gone from three point three per nine to three point four per nine strikeout rates gone from seven point eight to seven point seven so you wouldn't even necessarily know that anything had happened if you were just looking at the League totals on baseball reference but boy a lot has happened and again. I'm glad that mobias experimenting. I'm glad that this partnership exists easy for me to say I don't have to be part of the experiment but I'm glad that there is is a place where these rules can be tested clearly though the communication should be pedder. One of the things I questioned at the beginning of the season was why so many rules changes were being implemented all at once instead of just one or two things at a time so that the players weren't overwhelmed and so that we could actually isolate the impact of each of the differences now we have so many variables Ulster overlapping and may be confounding each other so I think maybe that was somewhat suspect and clearly just the way that this was conveyed to the players was probably sort of a last last minute thing. I'm sure it will go a bit more smoothly next season I don't know whether the responsibility lies more with MLB or with the League or with individual teams for communicated or not communicating these changes have been pitcher should not be told that he can't attempt pickoffs the way he has always attempted pickoffs after the national anthem and before he throws the first pitch that it's not ideal so the process should probably be improved and I hope that MLB in the Atlantic League do solicit and accept feedback from players like rick and Yo- von as they are are planning next season because it turns up. They had a lot to say so that will do it for today and for this week thank you for listening.

Murder by Numbers interview with director Ed Fear

"And Welcome to a special bonus episode of gaming ride home. I am Kyle Hilliard. But the more important person on this episode is Ed fear. The director of the cross murder mystery game murder by numbers. I have an unhealthy obsession with pick Ross puzzle so I wanted to talk with Ed. Fear about MASHING UP. Pick Rostow puzzles with the murder mystery visual novel that takes inspiration from Phoenix right and also ask him about his twitter header. Image I want to ask your I was looking at your twitter account and your twitter header. Is that the scene from thirty rock where Tina phase character has to eat the sandwich. Yes it is a lot like I. That scene like that seen as I love that scene because just to get off on a tangent right at the start like I was watching thirty rock. I was like this is a good show. I like Tina Fey. This is very funny but that scene. I was like this woman. Amazing actor like cheese sandwich in like two seconds for the sake of this one gag from then on. She puts it. When she's doing it. Like how is she? How did she digesting it but she does? So well is such a good piece of physical comedy to me to be doing that and also I can't have it all of it Yeah I've been thinking I was thinking about a week ago. I should probably change. My headed. Picks something a bit more professional like rather than submitted by notices something? But I can't bring myself changing. Thanks for agreeing to do this. I really appreciate it. He's always happy to Toke. Ed Fear what is your title on murder by numbers you director Director Great. And what what is your development history. What have you? What did you work on before murder by numbers? I went on a lot of games that have not been very successful very well. I'm on the podium. Might help to tide. Profile things This debate which was gave it Vova published last year or the Carbonell but I was the writer of that And the other thing that Edward is the type of boyfriends so tight full I it was basically just kind of getting the deal started kind of chatting with getting the rights to and then I did kind of a bunch of forensic design and Translation. But sorry not really. A huge amount of impact is kind of where my relationship with which is obviously led to to live in a way beyond that went on a lot of Affect I went to the game. It's query next. Japan called rivals which I was the lead writer for And a bunch of other things kind of In in various roles ready. I've always been somebody who just kind of adapts to whatever is needed but these days I mostly fake Assad writing and tonight and I also want to know what is your history with the pick. Ross I guess you could call it a or maybe like just a puzzle style like when did you discover pick Ross? Are you as obsessed with pick as I am? Yes is the answer I am. I think probably the first my first step Experience with Being when they released the first pick escape the S. and I played. I don't know what caused me to try playing but I played that and I was just immediately hooked. It was about that time that I came up with the concept of of metal by numbers. Oh well I mean the very very high level concept of of kind of basically I remember just kind of side by playing pickoffs and just in King How could you? How could the image that you get from completing this be useful in some other way and I mean literally the first thing that came to mind partly because that was the time when I was playing allows Phoenix Ryan Games? Like that was Well you know they usually objects I well if it was a clue in a in a mystery and it just kind of went from that ruling that actually. I had my next question that I had written down. You kinda answered here but I was Gonna ask you like what came first. Like I WANNA make a murder mystery game or I want to make a pick Ross game and it sounds it was kind of somewhere in the middle right. Yeah I mean I've never. I wanted to make a mega mystery gang to be perfectly honest because that's the very difficult to right and But it was. It was just that this eight. I think it really was the pick grossly came fast and then this just felt like the best pulse. Abreu use of the best puzzle. Fit of using that pickers mechanic in a way actually meshed with with the other part of the game The thing I've found is like I said he was. That was about ten years ago. Our men pitching at the CJ. The eyewitness At that point and they went really very interested in it I just have spent the last ten years to spend like convinced that somebody else was going to say this. I was like show me. This chilly icon of being the only person to have this like this idea like why hasn't someone else that had my reaction when I saw the trailer for the first time as someone who played a ton of pick Ross yeah. Why isn't this being mashed up with other sort of genres and things like that like this makes a lot of sense you know? Yeah well it certainly in the last in the last year that seemed to be a few more games during this I'm not sure why I think it might be. Because of the switch Paco's guidance being more easy to get. I guess in a sense like Emil on the if you want to pick gave me head to jump like that forty dollars on a game and now you just have to spend you can just spend like ten dollars on the shock. Paco's came but yeah there are some people that try that kind of trying to mix and With the game the game coming out this year Pixel puzzle make out leak which is kind of trying to combine it with With with that with a dating gang. I think I'm super interested in that because obviously I love. I want other people to be saying this because I know all of the answers to mobile numbers. You WanNA play. You WanNa play murder by numbers about having any knowledge at rightly yeah one hundred percent. I won't I won't have the experience. I've run houses right outside Hopefully something that will continue to to kind of keep keep going so after. It's funny because I have a similar story. Where the I saw the original across wasn't super familiar with it. I think I had some magazine. I think maybe it might have even been game informer before I was a writer for them. I think they had Mario's pick Ross on the top one hundred games of all time. Well let me try out this new thing and I you know I like you fell in love immediately in. I'm curious. Have you kept up with all these do you? Do you play all the e two games and stuff like that. I didn't I didn't play many of the ones on three D. S. I. Some play some of them but suddenly the switch ones I have. I have one of them. I even have the the connive friends pick which is which is much better but I I have. I also have allowed that the party ones like I. I absolutely love playing. I mean I haven't played any recently because of because of this I think of kind of pet cross myself out first But I'm looking for. It's getting back into at some point in. Did you play Pick Ross? Three D. or Three D. round to. Yes I bite because really I loved it ocal. I thought it was so important mate Excuse me important. Debate among like you know some of my friends who play pick. Yeah which do you prefer three D or Two D. Oh I think I preferred to date idea liked three day. I think it's always argue for three. I really I love three D so much. I think there's something about having to like keep swiping to like the object around. There's a little bit annoying. Perhaps td bankruptcy you just go deep add buttons and you can just come. It's it feels a bit more at the Nag's only maybe because you can just go through so in terms of the the story for the game. I think it's pretty clear that Phoenix is an inspiration Do you think it's just because like you mentioned earlier you were kind of playing Phoenix right when you sort of discovered an appreciation for pick. Ross I think I think probably yeah I mean you know. The original Phoenix Right. Challenging is one of the one of the best written unite trilogies in video games like. I think it's insane an it's actually been quite a surprise to me and I. I realized I very naive for this already. I didn't I've been very surprised at the parallels that people have drawn potato by numbers and Baker. I like obviously the the inspiration for the of the ultimate canucks comes from Phoenix. Right up me taking away the bits I didn't really enjoy from the series Wheels take take it like a like a thing like a we take lead from it for the time of the game as well but like to me. The idea of trying you know people were saying that it was expecting it to be like a Phoenix right spiritual successor up and to me that was terrifying when people start saying that I was like like how why would I want to make a spiritual successor to something. That's already potent at like without wanting to throw too much. I hate you know even Capcom find it. Hard to make modern a steady games. That are as good as kind of original three sites like I. I was kind of a little bit. I was a little bit terrified by that but yeah I said they wanted to take your love inspiration from it but at the same time there are a lot of reasons why it's not exactly like that like there's a lot of reasons why honor isn't a lawyer. I'd rather on courtroom segments because I wanted it to be fair league distinct just rather to throw the take inspiration from any type. Yeah I one of the questions I have about honor specifically like I love that the first puzzle that you solve in the game is your you find what is a Tampon. Unlike it really sets like I guess maybe not the right word but it's very much like okay. This is a story about a woman from a woman's experience. Keep talking about why it was important for you to have the game. Be about a woman from a woman's point of view Yes I I'm I mean as a rights are as a person actually. I'm just generally more interested in in women like most of my friends are women and I often found that some storytelling perspective. I feel like there are a lot of interesting stories about women that are being towed especially it games. I didn't really want to fake his too much on it because of a say I'm not women and I felt like if I wanted to really if we wanted to tell a story about about being women and up I would want to get women to to write it but that that particular about that I puzzle is something that I really focused on for a long time. It was one of the first ideas I had actually once once we come up with the concepts it was like the seat I right I think the reason for it is that yes. I wanted to very quickly sets the time and basically sad explanation that this wasn't going to be ravage pick cross gang So that was definitely a poverty. The other thing was the Iowa's he needed something. I needed a way to get across the scouts senses when lacking said the ideas mistaking something. Kinda came from there So yes that was. That's the reason why we kind of went for that but also it's also partly from. I remember playing. Let the rich. No life is strange and saying saying temp on machine in the in the guilt. Bathroom that you go into Bain like why have I never seen that before? It's such a normal thing and you know I have a very frank. Discussions with female friends about it was also very inspired by that and yeah there were a number of times when we consider moving it but it was actually all of the the women on the team or are we really keen for it to state so they were a few times where. I wave at they. They gave me the confidence to guy with him. Yeah no I think I think you're right. I think you guys made. The call is a good way to start the game for sure. I mean there was a real risk that it could have been misconstrued as like being like really admit every Mitchell attempt at humor and we did we did originally have something that came off to that by then removes. Luckily it seems like most people have have taken it the right way so. I'm pretty happy about the game. Very clearly takes place was it. Nineteen Ninety six I saw. Yup Is there is there. Do you just have affection for that period of time or one hundred percent down to the fashion. I Love Ninety s fashion. And I when I what I needed at the very beginning. I needed a way to ensure that this game would stand out visually because I knew that we had limited resources of I need a visual. Novels tend to look very similar to to character portraits backdrop and textbooks every vision level. It looks like that so it needed a way that within those elements we could stand out enough to. If you sort screen shot you would that it was from this and so I was just trying to think of ways and the cut the whole nine hundred came to me because my friends were wearing double d a time and and I just thought it looked great so I kind of just jumped on that. And so skippy. Reading nights wave visually distinguishing ourselves. I don't say that was a little element of felt nice to detective story in a time when you didn't have a smartphone because it feels like small finds like now that we have access to the world's knowledge hands it feels like that's not really an excuse for stuff detective stories do anymore. Yeah that played A. I think that what we wanted to do. How good final question? But how are you feeling about the release? How's the game doing is it? Is it nice to finally get it out there and be done? Yeah I mean it's it's great we've been and the the main rights of Murray have been working on earth had been working on it for two years so it's always nice to get get out have have people saying what you've been working for so long grey and reception has been amazing fucked up. Why PATEX I try not to look at it and I just I lost you for a moment. You were saying that you try not to look at I'm assuming reviews now now. I'm obsessively looking at reviews. I try not to like the sales figures cy. I don't have easy access to them. I could ask for them but I'm trying not to cite Soleil. It's kind of exciting as the receptionist but I really. I don't really know at the end of the day I made it myself. It was I wanted to play. I'm just really glad that there are other people that want to play as well. Yeah thanks so much thanks again. Thank you have a good one again. That was Ed fear director of murder by numbers which is available right now for switch and on PC.

Steelers Retro Show: Controversy for the Conference Crown

"Support for this. Podcast comes from state farm. It's no surprise. That state farm is there to help you protect your home or car but you may be shocked to hear that state farm offer surprisingly great rates. Yeah that means you get a dedicated state farm agent and access to their award winning app all at a surprisingly great rate. So if you're hearing my voice right now state farm probably has a surprisingly great rate for you when you want the real deal like a good neighbor state farm is there pittsburgh steelers fans welcome once again to the steelers retro show. You know what it is. It's that chance to go back in time. As we dust off the black and gold delorean we get it up to eighty eight miles per hour. We have the one point one gigawatts. And we're ready to roll back in time to steeler yesteryear one of my favorite groups. Tony desio who is alongside with me as let me say that first. Hey tony what's going on brian. Good evening to you. Glad to be with you again internally like i was saying one of my favorite musical groups of all time. The counting crows love me. Some counting grows. What do you think of them i. They're pretty good. I i was into them back in the day. I haven't heard a lot of new stuff from them recently. But i'm sure still doing their. They're lyrics were very poignant to me so i love it and one of their great lyrics from song called mrs potter's lullaby. It's almost an eight minute song. As this song was a great tune. And i'm really not sure about what it's about. It's more about like the rock and roll lifestyle being on the road and the circus that comes with fame and all of that and it's really cool but one of the lyrics. That always gets me. It's talking about memories. And it says the price of a memory though is the sorrow that that memory brings but when we go back in time with the pittsburgh steelers on the retro show. There's no sorrow those memories. The only sorrow is is that that stuff's not going on today but it's so great to go back into yesteryear and like this weekend we're going back to the afc championship games and one of the greatest championship games of all time for the pittsburgh steelers. I can't wait to share that memory and there will be no sorrow. I'm just spoiler alert. Tony no sorrow on this one. If you're a fan of the men of steel absolutely not and. I don't remember this game as a kid but i remember the locker room celebration afterwards for some reason it when i was watching the game last week on on youtube i realize that was my first dealer memory watching terry bradshaw. Take his jersey off after the game. I that's kind of where it all started for me. I have some great memories of this. This was an important game for me and the reason was important. Game for me is oil alert. We're going back to nineteen seventy nine. Actually we're going back to nineteen eighty but the nine hundred nine season. And that was the last of the dynasty years from the seventies something. That was really important for me in. This is what was going to happen in my life. If the steelers won this game and man. I didn't want the steelers to win this game. Because if the steelers won this game my parents were going to the super bowl without me. Which spoiler alert they did you know. We'll talk more about that little bit later. In the show. I had just turned eight years old and i was not ready for my parents to go to california and leave me home with grandma so i wasn't sure about this but things changed for me definitely in this game and true colors come out and my true colors were black and gold. Nothing could stop that feeling of watching your team to another super bowl. It was funny for me. At that time it was expected. I still pretty young. But that's all i knew. Super bowl steelers are in it. That's what i knew and you find out that they're they are few and far between. So if i go back in time to give my eight year old self. Some advice like to these days. Don't very often so. Let's dial the delorean the time circuits to january seventh nineteen eighty as we go back forty one years. My friend and the forecast was frigid in pittsburgh but the mental thermometer tony in the city of champions it was downright tropical like i said they were getting ready to go to the afc championship game for the sixth time in the decade and this would be hopefully their fourth trip to a super bowl and certainly was it was it was it was one heck of a run and just like you said when you were a kid. John stallworth Talking about seventy nine season and he said you know i came into the league in seventy four and we went to the super bowl and by the my six year in the league it was expected i grew up in. I grew up in an environment the the entire city. That's what they came to expect. Not just from the steelers. But even the pirates back then had a heck of a run and they won that year's world series and panthers were one of the best teams in college football so they called pittsburgh. The city champions in it was a it was an app description at that time definitely was and i gotta tell you what else was going on. At that time. I told you that even though the weather was extremely cold. I mentioned that it was downright trump ical in the minds of steeler fans and it was and it was also downright tropical on the radio. Tony i'm gonna ask you this question. Do you like pina colada. Tony i i do. I do very good drink. And you're referring to it's about a guy who is looking into one ads and the woman. He looked up his ex wife right. Is that the premise of the song. It was his girlfriend or wife or whatever they were ended up actually cheating on each other with themselves. But it's a great song. I in fact you just heard that today by accident if you like make in midnight so all actually escape the pina colada song by rupert holmes and it was the last number one song of the nineteen seventies and it became number one again a couple of weeks later. I know you're gonna love this. He viewers and i was even though i was young. I didn't know all the jokes but everybody was watching. One of the number one shows at the time was three's company. Oh absolutely. I remember watching as a kid and i haven't stopped watching it. Since are you a janet or chrissy guy. Actually terry guy. Oh there you go. Terry have the nurse. The one that ended up between those two between chrissy and terry sydney snow christie's cousin who was in. La rams cheerleader. I actually The the three's company. Dvd so one of the extra. I actually found that out that she was a cheerleader. And that's how she got onto show when one of the reasons. Anyway in the world tony the. Us was coming off of a grain embargo against the ussr. And jimmy carter authorized a one point five billion dollar loan to bella the chrysler corporation and meanwhile the steelers were gearing up to play the houston oilers in the afc championship game. For the second year in a row. They played wild card weekend. And then everybody that one a division had the week off in houston could not win the division. They were great teams. They could not surpass pittsburgh so they were the wildcard teams and they always had to play the week before but two years in a row. They're playing in pittsburgh for the title houston came to the title game with the seventh ranked defense and the most takeaways in the nfl at that. That really seemed to potentially bode well for the oilers against a team in the steelers that gave the ball away. A league leading fifty. Two times. Terry bradshaw tony. What's a gunslinger back. Then it was. It was commonplace for him to throw almost as many interceptions touchdowns back then fumble the football the the entire team. They never really got over the turnover bug that year and if i needed a super bowl champion would lead the league in turnovers and make it back to the super bowl. But that's nice. We're able to accomplish dealer scored more points than anybody. And that's even more amazing when you think of how many times they gave it up so leading the way for houston in takeaways was safety. Mike reinfeldt he had twelve interceptions. Tony that's amazing. Delete the nfl in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine and vernon perry who came over from the nfl. He was the defensive star of the week. Before in san diego. He had four interceptions in a field goal block in that game and he returned one. Fifty seven yards before being tackled by the holder of things but the defending champs. They still had three lombardi trophies on their resume. They were hosting a dome team on a frozen field in twenty two degree weather. Even pirate world series. Mvp willie stargell was on hand for this one. I remember seeing him in the crowd wearing a cowboy hat. I was like whoa wait. Why is he gonna cowboy hat from texas. He can't do that. The pirates and the steelers. They were both champions at that time. That's why we call the city of champions and the great thing is we had a retro show. maybe about a month back where the steelers were in cleveland. Right before the world series started lynn. Swann was not playing that game. He was injured. He was wearing the pirate cap with the stargell stars on it on the sidelines. Entire game those teams. They had batting practice together. They would. They shared a stadium. They would do workouts and they'd hang out and they were really fans of the other. It was it was a family and it's funny not just family for the pirates but family for the professional sports teams back then. It was really cool. It was a great time to be a fan. It's one of the few reasons why. I kind of wish i about ten or fifteen years older because it would have been fun to be a teenager or in my early twenties and enjoy that time it had to be a fantastic fantastic time to be a sports fan in pittsburgh okay. So let's get into kickoff. Tony we will be back right after this to get into that with the steelers and the oilers in the nineteen seventy-nine afc championship game. Stick around right after this message. Mcdonald's today high shall have the quarter pounder with cheese extra muster nikola half a ten piece chicken mcnuggets into sites ranch please. The we've done this before meal. Get it at mcdonald's when he get two of your face for two six bucks limited time only practice and participation may vary him regular price. Welcome back to the steelers retro show. My name is brian. Anthony davis alongside me is tony. We are so glad to be talking about one of the greatest. Afc championship games in pittsburgh. Steelers history on the steelers retro show from behind the steel curtain dot com tony. Let's get into it. I can't wait. Let's dive right in three restating was popping it this time. Let's see what happens. The steelers won the opening kickoff. Tony they elected to receive so the black and gold were an oiler territory. Almost immediately courtesy of terry bradshaw passes to john stallworth and runs by franco harris. However we just talked about them before the break vernon perry wasn't done yet. He intercepted bradshaw. Pass to benny cunningham from the oiler. Thirty six he returned it. Seventy five yards for the score. Two and a half minutes in bum phillips team led seven nothing just like that we talked about how the steelers lead the league with fifty two pickoffs there down down early in the afc. G oh my gosh. People were worried. Tony oh yeah it was. It was definitely stunning. Turn of events a stunning way to start a game and vernon perry the oilers here from the previous week from the division around the e. I wasn't a great pass bradshaw at all and nobody was looking at perry picked it off. And i mean he. He went untouched. Seventy five yards and seven nothing the visitors after the steelers. Got the ball back. They had a pont. So dan pastor any and the oilers took the field for their first drive of the game. However the league's leading rusher earl campbell was stopped for two yards onto carries and l c greenwood. Mr hollywood bags. That was my guy tony. He sect passerini to force a punt behind a timely passed a swan and a scramble on third and fourteen from bradshaw for twenty five yards. Pittsburgh was threatening deepen oiler territory. Well at the drive did stall at the houston four. Here comes matt. Bahr the rookie. From penn state he hits from twenty one yards out and the steelers cut the lead to seven three but the oilers began to storm back with a seventy two yard. Drive behind a forty five yard screen. Pass reception for tim. Wilson and passerini connecting with ronnie komen for thirty two yards houston was driving at the steelers. Sixteen at quarters end. So the quarters over there still leading the steel curtain stiffen down once again though an austrian toni fritsch. That's the guy. Remember from football cards. Tony he added a twenty seven yard field goal to extend the houston lead to tend to three early in the second quarter. I gosh a quarter of this game was gone and houston's up ten to three tony there were a lot of nervous. Nellie pittsburgh absolutely Huge the steelers defense stiffened at this time in kept you out of the end zone because a fourteen to three deficit. Ooh that would have been. That would have been even more stunning turn of events but we talked about earlier. How the steelers. Even though they turn the ball over lot they were quick scoring team. They could get back into it. They were back in business on the next drive at their own. thirty three. The blond bomber loved that guy love that nickname to tony. He tore up. The houston. defense was swift passes to bleier harris and true of them to suon with nine fifty. Five remaining in the first half. Benny cunningham caught a pass from number twelve over. Who vernon perry for a sixteen yard touchdown. An attendant perry was not superman. I guess and he gave one up there and that was huge. It seemed like benny cunningham was always big in these games. We talk about. He was a really good tight end. Tony and he helped tie the game here. He was and he was a he was a matchup problem for for. I mean we talk about guys like gronk and kelsey today. But i mean this is a big tight end in in a safety like perry trying to cover him i. It was a mismatching and bradshaw and cunningham. They were friends off the field. They had a great report on the field. They indeed did and we were hoping that they were going to get back into this even more but houston wasn't done. They were driving again but they were driving. Despite earl campbell being anemic. He was the number one rusher that year. He was absolutely fantastic. But not in this game he could not get going. He only had fifteen yards on. Seventeen carries the entire game. Tony that steel curtain shut him down immensely. And that was a big deal. Passerini was connecting to his receivers. Instead of getting campbell going and he connected with mike renfro. who's their top receiver. Then but number eighty two was changing hands and he fumbled at his own. Forty nine after being hit by donnie. Shell with me blunt recovering now every time we do a game from one thousand nine hundred seventy four to one thousand nine hundred. Eighty seven donnie. Shell always has a turnover. Donny show was the man. Tony he absolutely was. And when you see when you watch games now it's like you said you're you're you're wondering what took them so long to induct this guy to enshrine and the canton to make him immortal because he was such a clutch player for them and he was always coming up with with big hits big turnovers clutch moments and he was a very special safety absolutely in the follow. Great running by bleier and harrison trap walks by gerry mullins. Who was subbing. For steve courson. Who was out injured in the game. The steelers set up bradshaw touchdown. Pass to john stallworth. From twenty yards out with two thirty five remaining in the half. That's a big deal. Now at this point seventeen ten. Houston they tried to answer but rookie. Dwayne woodruff there he goes. It's really weird to call him a rookie. Because he played for the steelers so long he intercepted passerini at the pittsburgh. Forty five and here comes matt bahr to close out the half from forty six yards out. He misses so yeah. Barrhead seasons the steelers but this is one of the reasons that he did not last long in pittsburgh because he wasn't exactly accurate early on. They closed out the half and seventeen to ten. If you remember those early years are did not have great range and you didn't have great accuracy. In fact one of my earliest memories is that devastating loss of the bengals at three rivers stadium the following year. One thousand nine hundred when he misses that really a chip shot field goal. That would have given the steelers. A much needed win. They just barely missed the playoffs. At your map bar had some work to do. But here's a t. Is a testament that kickers does like anybody else can get better. And he did improve throughout his career down seventeen to ten. The oilers got the football to start the second half and an opportunity to tie the score. The problem though was the george perlas defense was a picture of absolute donald tony as they forced another cliff parsley punt. This was temporarily good news for both squads as theo bell slipped trying to feel the ball at his own thirty eight and the pigskins squirted into houston's hands at the steeler forty two but once again houston squandered their best field position of the day for a short time in this game though houston lost. Communication their headsets. So the steelers had there's disconnected and both teams had to use hand signals temporarily. That's pretty neat tony. If one team was out both teams had to be out. Yeah that's a good ru- good. But i do. I mean you have to keep everybody on equal footing. As far as i'm concerned so i've always been behind that role after another steeler punt passerini lined up under center with good field position. Again in an attempt to tie he was wallet though by l c greenwood and left for a play and came back less than one hundred percent in this game. The three rivers crowd then came into play on fourth into from the steelers thirty seven and what appeared to be a first down was nullified when houston failed to get the snap off in time. Q parsley the punt. Once again on a drive in which mike renfro recovered a fumble in the vicinity of five pittsburgh defenders. Mel blunt was drawn into a shock penalty and caught a key. First down the second year man from tcu was involved in one of the most controversial calls entitled game history. Though with one thirty left in the third passerini threw a six yard rainbow to mike. Renfro that guy. We were talking about number. Eighty two for an apparent touchdown in the corner of the right zone. Over ron johnson. The replaced showed that renfro had clear controlled the ball with his left foot down and his right foot hitting the pylon now. nfl films. Tony showed much later. Showed some movement and rent froze hands. If instant replay wasn't effect the call on the field very well could have been reversed and pittsburgh fans would have been very hard pressed to argue it. It was much more borderline than when it first appeared on nbc television. That's the thing the announcers were like. Yeah this definitely a catch. They're getting ripped off here but later on a lot of people in pittsburgh and out of pittsburgh said that was actually probably not going to be a catch but back then it would have probably been turned around tony. The officials conferred and referee. Jim tunney rooted out of bounds. Houston was absolutely livid. He still can't stop talking about it. Steelers fans accepted the gift. It was now second down and goal from the six and the steelers defense held the oilers to a field goal. Tony it was seventeen. Thirteen at the end of the third. Your thoughts on one over the craziest plays in history and one of the reasons we definitely have replay now. I think it passed the eye test as far as a catch. I mean i don't. I've never seen the the the nfl he said it was an nfl films version. I've never seen that. But but in terms of in terms of the nbc feed definitely. Pass the eye test that. If i had to give a reason why why maybe they call it. Incomplete and i realized that they. They said that they were the official was was shielded but i think renfrew for whatever reason he lifted his back leg got really high before before touching his left hoedown full the the official into thinking that he didn't get both feet in bounds. That's the only reason why. I think that was overturned. But i but the orders had a great however the best nelson agreement and a bunch of other guys said this at best would've tied the game and the steelers they weren't gonna be. They weren't going to be thrown off by a tie game. In a big moment they they would have come back and scored. Which would they ultimately did anyway you. I'm glad you said that. Tony because history. Everybody that's not in pittsburgh wants to go ahead and poke holes at this game and say oh the oilers would of went to the super bowl if this would have happened. We don't know that and you know the resolve of the steelers back then. You mentioned that those guys would have not let this happen. No and when we talk about the final score you will realize that the rent fortunate but passerini even claimed after the game that was not the sole reason that his team lost a lot of people forget is that houston had so many opportunities to reclaim the four points at this time and they failed to do so in the fourth quarter the steelers ice this game it started out on third and twenty when bradshaw found a sliding swan for a first down third and twenty tony after a five minute clock draining. Dr matt bahr kicked thirty nine yard field goal. It was still only touchdown. Lead but pittsburgh led twenty to thirteen with houston nearing desperation mode. The impressive passerini. Which i really thought he was a good player. He began to engineer a game tying drive at his own eleven with nine forty two remaining but after number seven and white found. We know merkin over the middle disaster struck. Mel blunt chard ins donnie. Shell recovered now. This was opposite of what happened. Before when donnie. Shell hit hit renfro and mel blunt recovered so they turn it around. Flip the script. It still is okay for the steelers show recovers at the houston forty-five with five forty six left. This steeler team back then when they had ice the game get the kill shot. They were able to do it. Bradshaw only needed to get his team in field goal range for the victory but he went for it all rocky bleier caught and ran for two first downs while the precious seconds would take away thirty and go from the five bleier took the hand off and burst in the end zone with less than a minute remaining. That is the way the game ended with a final score of twenty seven to thirteen. So if you if you wanna be unlike damn passerini and say that's not the reason we lost in want to say that if that would have been reversed houston wins it. It's hard to say so because the backs up everything you said tony because right now they win twenty seven thirteen when they have a chance to the game. They were able to do so and they did so to go to the super bowl once again. Tony it was so fantastic again and again. That game tied going into the fourth quarter. I think the steelers and senator winning twenty seven thirteen win twenty seven seventeen again. They were not phased by these kind of moments. I mean this is a team that played arguably the greatest super bowl of all time the year earlier against the cowboys maybe second greatest dynasty of all time and they slug love with them and and and they came through in the clutch one so i have no doubt that they would have still won this game. Even if it was a play role a touchdown and you remember me telling you at the beginning of the show. That i was worried about this game and i was actually hoping that the steelers wouldn't win because i was an eight year old and i was selfish and i was afraid of my parents going on a plane to california. Never coming back what happened. The little a-hole in me turned around changed his tune. I'm jumping up and screaming for my steelers. I absolutely loving it. But it didn't take me long to get back into my steeler fan hood but something happened just about three years ago. My dad and i. I caught up my dad and i said dad terry bradshaw is going to be about two hours from my house. We have an opportunity to go meet them. Let's go do it and my dad's like absolutely so we go and we're standing in line and a buddy of mine had a helmet that he wanted me to get signed so it was actually a game again. Mourn helmet bradshaw looked at this helmet and he studying it. My dad was taking pictures of and he's like. Wow i think i wore this. I'm like did and i told him. Stories like wow and he was so cool. I just wanted to even though. I paid money for the tickets and everything. I just didn't want to go crazy and be like chris farley. Go hey remember when he did this. Remember that that was cool. I didn't want to do that. But what i wanted to do. I shook his hand. I was really quick and it was really weird. Because terry bradshaw wanted at a talk in so my dad leans in and he goes. Hey i just want to tell you. I was at super bowl. Fourteen about was just a great memory for me. And terry bradshaw stops puts his head up in the air. Like he's in fought because you know that was a rough one. We won that game but that was a tough game. And i go yeah. I'm still pissed off that they've been taking me. And terry bradshaw looks at was what did take you. That's exactly what he said. Why did he take you as well. Because i was eight and he wanted to take my mom and set. Terry bradshaw looks at me and says hell son. I wouldn't have taken you either. Exact words what did it take me either. And i'm like But i'm still mad about. I haven't gotten over done laughing. i love it. I don't know if terry bradshaw realized that. I wasn't really a serious because my data we joked about this all the time my dream would be to go to a super bowl with my dad and i am blessed to still have my dad. And that's what terry bradshaw wanted to make. Sure he reminded me next. He said son exact words. Tony son just be glad you have him. Fantastic fantastic and i was like. Wow this guy who i was actually trying to get away from terry bradshaw. Because i just didn't want to waste his time and everything is. There was a big line in here. This guy was so cool. One of the talk would have talked to me longer. He would have held up the line. That's how it was but to say that to me and it's advice that i didn't need because i'm very family oriented. I'm glad but it was so cool that he was able to say that to me. It's just a great memory. I have i feel like i'm not even closer to my dad. But i'm close to terry bradshaw because of that conversation and so when i think back about this game i think about family and i think of how blessed i am to have it and how blessed i am to have the phantom that i have for a team that employed a guy like bradshaw and a team that was a family and that is when we talk about going back in time memories and the sadness that a memory brings and the elation that memory brings i tell you what the only sadness is for me. That team is not together anymore. And we keep losing guys from that team here and there every couple of months we lose another member of that team and it just makes me ache. But i'm so glad to have the memories of that nineteen seventy-nine team and i'm so glad we could go back in time. One of the great victories in the one thing that i hate about this victory is that it's tainted with some people saying that they would have lost that game if they would have had a replay and like you said tony they would have not lost this game. Oh absolutely not they. They would have found a way to win. And you know one. Final thought is it. You know kudos to those teams. I mean i remember watching a nfl films. Special about those seventy eight seventy nine oilers teams how they go. The wildcard route to the afc championship game. Two years in a row and how their fans embraced them in houston and in both years after after they lost these games. They had a welcome home rally at the astrodome. that was almost filled to capacity. I mean they really loved team. And and and dan passerini talking about. It broke down crying because they got so close. Couple years couldn't get over the hump and it just goes to show you know you can have special memories obviously from super bowls and everything but coming close and fighting to get there and coming up. Sure you can develop a great memories from that too. It's an absolute shame tony that this team did not get a chance to win a title. This this love your blue team from the houston oilers. So i agree with you too because they even though they division rivals that was a true team. Probably one of the nfl's best t- time teams to never win a title. So thanks so much tony. I'm so glad to go through this game with you. It's a lot of fun and next week. We're gonna start getting into some great super bowls for the steelers. And i can't wait to do that with you as well. I can't wait. I'm really looking forward to that. I mean there's so much talk about these games in some seventy special memories conic moments and images. And i can't wait to get into it and we will do that. Four tony daffy oh. My name is brian. Anthony davis this has been the steelers retro show so thank you all for joining us.

Hour 1: MLB Continued Schedule Changes

"Good morning, it is time to get up with bad blood. You know the dodgers wanted a pizza, the astros last night, they got it. We'll start there then far bigger problems for the MARLINS. We'll explain how baseball is changing everything to salvage it season less than a week after it began and football Aaron Rodgers uses one word to describe his situation in Green. Bay tells you everything. Everything you need to know, you'll hear what that word is in this hour of get up, which starts right now from Bristol. I'm Mike Greenberg and I welcome you to get up presented by Fan Duel. We're on for the next two hours be with you until ten am eastern time went I. Take will come in its entirety at its normal time, and of course, baseball which has. Has Been in the middle of this pandemic and has been trying to rearrange everything. But sort of made us forget about some of the storylines that we otherwise would have been talking about like. Oh. Yeah. The dodgers have beef with the Astros well, last night vet beef came to the surface. Joe Kelley pitching in the sixth, Alex Bregman at the plate well, that one's I tight in. In fact, it's not even tight. It's behind his head on a three Oh pitch, ninety, six miles an hour. Right over the head of Bregman Bregman, takes I. Kelly says many on that one, all these two batters, later, Yuli, Gurriel this is a to pitch all. That's nights an inside. He's pitching deep inside on the Astros hitters. coryell would walk now. Kelly is facing Carlos Correa? Give you one guess. The backstop both baserunners would advance. We're going to have a little staredown down action here, another astro hitter, just barely avoiding getting hit later in the at bat to to to pitch, he gets Korea swinging to end the inning Kelly walks off out. We got body language. We got facial expressions, we got stare downs, and now we got everybody out of the dugout. This is the first confrontation of its sort that we've seen in the social distancing era. And it sort of fit. The bill got a lot of yelling a little bit of holding back not a whole lot of physical confrontation, dusty Baker new manager of the Astros, very much getting into it with the umpires in particular with the mask, dodgers win five to dusty after the game. Let's talk. Really enraged. Everybody's when. He took Carlos on, they struck him out. And Any told him nicely. See, what are you supposed to do that and then? What upset me is at the Empire's. warned. US. You know, want you want him? You know he's one. On the wall and you know he's the one that started this this mess in the first. So. I didn't like it at all. Sorts of things that I. Best competitively. In you know with with fanciers easy to get some stuff. Couple Times. But yeah, some of the early. Two, kinds of. Okay. So there's that Jeff. Passan. Is here. Edwato Peres is with US early this morning and water. What was your reaction to what we saw in? HOUSTON. Last night. You know it's unfortunate I'm really happy that he missed. The with the fastball and I'll tell you this right now, if that would have hit, Alex Bregman, the had would have been This would have been a different story that would have been life. Right. There but that three Oh pitch was scary situation after he struggled Carlos. Correa. was necessary. Yes. I know it was a breaking ball, but still to be able to do those facial expressions, there's no need for that. Yes. Carlos Correa said some some aggressive things at in spring training a couple years last year, but we have to move forward. The Houston. Astros already were penalized by this to start enforcing this. This is going to be unfortunate of other teams are going to try to take it upon themselves. I. Think Major. League. Baseball has to come in aggressive. Let them know that there is no room for this especially right now, Charley Steiner said. said on a yeah. There might have been not been any punches thrown, but there were still droplets in the air in that Infield. No question. I want to make sure that I'm clear on what you're saying the idea that they would be retribution for the astros particularly from the dodgers who they beat in the world series in seventeen at a time where essentially they were cheating in order to do it. We knew that was coming or at least under the normal circumstances of baseball that would becoming. But you're saying there's a big difference between hitting a guy in the and the, but and hitting and throwing it up, and then like he did at Bregman head. No I'm not saying that I'm saying there's no need at all just to be able to go after gods of its head hunting or even at the back or even at the buttocks of a player that happened two years ago Kelly wasn't even with the dodgers a couple years ago, he was with the Red Sox. This situation right now, where if it was done on purpose, it shouldn't be allowed in. There's no room for right now in major league baseball, especially with what we're going through and Oh by the way. Yes. Houston already got punished for this moving forward. Interesting. I'm just curious to hear is that a change in your perspective you and I have we've talked to on the number of times, but not that much and I don't think. Is that a change in your perspective over the years or is that something that you've always felt? Oh, this is something that I've always felt now. And, think about it. This happened two years ago. Kelly's not even part of the dodgers two years ago. He was with the Red Sox I mean there. There is a difference. Yes. The Red Sox were also affected by this with the Houston, Astros and the personal issue should be handled differently. Fair enough, Right Jeff. What did you think and what? What if anything do you think major? League baseball will do as a result. Grant Joe. Kelley. Wasn't with the dodgers two years ago. He was with the Boston red, Sox, and two years ago is causing a fight with Tyler, Austin with the Yankees. If you recall in Boston there, Joe Kelley fight cloak t shirts everywhere. Now, I'm not saying that this was unquestionably intentional because remember Joe Kelly's guy who has had troublesome control, his entire careers. He's a guy who during the pandemic was practicing a change up and broke his window. That being said, this did not look good and it's GonNa be really interesting to see how major league baseball handles is because remember Alex Bregman didn't get hit Carlos Correa didn't get hit is major league baseball really going to come in and penalized Joe Kelley. Your penalize anyone on these teams for clearing the benches simply because it's running afoul of the protocol that the League has placed, it has said it is going to be stringent in enforcement when it comes to. To head hunting against the. HOUSTON. Astros, it does not want this sort of situation boiling over. So there is a possibility that we could see disciplined, but it's to be hard considering Bregman and Korea where not hit if they come in with any kind of a penalty or even a fine, it's going to be contested by both sides. super-quick. I. Just have a second, but would you do if you were major league baseball now based on what you told me? Jeff telling us it's going to be hard to do. They didn't actually get hit by pitches, but would you make statement if you were baseball? I would make a statement. I probably would not penalize right now. Joe, Kelley? Because he did not hit. Alex Bregman and other one was a curve ball. But at the same time and we have to send a message. Over also the hitters know that they can go and not just feel that they're being targets. Okay. Fair enough. So we'll leave that part of it there because there's obviously the other overwhelming story with baseball and that of course, is the updates necessitated by the coronavirus which are coming fast and furious yesterday. Four additional members of the marlins tested positive that brings the total to seventeen members of their traveling party so that then lead to well, the nationals had been scheduled to play a three game series against the marlins starting Friday. In Miami. A majority of the Washington players voted against that yesterday, the decision on whether Games are played. Played rests with Major League Baseball, however, not with the nationals, but the league then did agree with the nats and postponed all of Miami's games through Sunday. So they're now not scheduled to play basically for the rest of the week that includes games originally scheduled for today and tomorrow in Baltimore against the Orioles, who will now instead host the Yankees for two game series starting tonight. Remember the Yankees had two games canceled or postponed that we're supposed to be in Philadelphia over the last couple of days. So Jeff here they are major league baseball for perfectly understandable reasons rearranging their schedule on the fly. What more can you tell us? Greenie. A schedule is a schedule, and till it is not and that's the scenario that Major League baseball is facing right now with the Miami Marlins. The idea that they are even going to complete sixty games simply is not possible at this point there points in the schedule where they can make up that three-game series against the nationals possibly, but the four games that they're going to be missing against. The Baltimore? Orioles. Orioles, they don't have enough off days to do that. Let alone to string series together like this. So Major League Baseball's looking scenario in which at least one team or two. If you include, the Orioles are going to be playing fewer than sixty games. Now, it helps that the marlins are probably going to be at the bottom of the National League east the Orioles are going to be at the bottom of. Of, the American League East, that these aren't the teams that are going to be in playoff contention that said this may not be the only time. We see this happen during this season. So at least there is a precedent being set early on. There's also precedent I'm old enough to remember the strike year where everything got split up in eighty one, an eighty-one, and not every team play the same number of games. Games, and so it's happened before and you can just based on winning percentage even if teams don't play the same number of games and at the end of the day, unusual circumstances, unprecedented circumstances call for unusual measures. If every team doesn't play the same number of games, this year Edwato and your opinion is that okay, can we still go through this thing? Even if some teams don't get to the full sixty? Absolutely, it's okay. I mean there is president for it. I definitely. Go on win percentage. I Know Players Coaching Staff and also front office personnel look and way at the plane percentage a lot. So I'm okay with that. Especially, this time of year what I'm not okay with the if I'm the Baltimore Orioles is I'm about to face the Miami Marlins and now have to go in and face New York Yankees and Gerrit Cole. That's not fair. At one interesting way to look at it guys. It's such an interesting time. I. So appreciate all the perspective here and what is really unprecedented set of circumstances for Major. League. Baseball had. Thank you Jeff, stay close. We'll come back with more a little bit later, but that brings us to the NFL because this is hitting the NFL hard the number of football players who have opted out of the season. Season continues to grow the packers Devin funchess joined them yesterday saying his closest family members of experience life threatening impact of Covid nineteen, and he's opting out for their safety and his own another wide out in his first year with a new team is Marquees Goodwin. He's opting out for family concerns the New Eagle as a five month, old baby, and another new father also opted out yesterday. That's linebacker. LINEBACKER Tonto. How tire excuse me hightower? One of six patriots have opted out by far the most of any team among the others Patrick Chung, a starting safety and starting right tackle marcus cannon. So I'm going to put this full screen appear just the look. This is the number of players who just opted out yesterday and you're not going to be able to read through all of the names we're. We're not trying to give you this many name so that you can look at them all closely, really the point of it is just to get a sense of how many players in the NFL just yesterday opted out for the season, and so with that thought in mind, let me bring our insider Jeff Darlington into the conversation. If you're talking with a lot of these players, what are they saying? Green. I think it's very interesting because when you do kinda reach out to several players, different demographics as I had whether it's a young guy with no family No media family. No kids whether it's an older veteran. The interesting thing is how personalized this decision is, but what's really significant? What I'm talking to these guys is some of the guys surprised by how many have been voluntary opt-outs, not high risk. Fourteen of the twenty five have been voluntary, and that's a big sacrifice. You don't get accrued season the money that the the NFL does give you a hundred and fifty thousand dollars gets taken Outta your next year's pay. That money. So it's not like that's just an easy thing to do the high risk players. There's been three that have declared high risk. There are several others that probably are, but having said, specifically, those guys are getting three, hundred, fifty, thousand dollars in crew season. It makes much more sense to a lot of the players around the league. So it is a significant sacrifice for these players who are voluntarily opting out Greenie. T to do what they're doing right now. No question and it's starting to have a bit of an impact. We'll see how much it does on the possibility of a season getting started jeff stay close because we have a ton of football to get to with you this morning coming up, you have to hear what Bruce Arians has to say about Tom Brady's new teammates who may be a little starstruck around their new quarterback. You will hear it and then Lebron says, he'll be locked in, but he's making one big change for this year's playoffs pill. Tell you what that is as we continue, get up on ESPN. Get up is presented by Fan duel more ways to win. Back to the NFL, the buccaneers arriving for training camp in Tampa yesterday. Tom, Brady. Now, his chance to get up to speed with his new team-mates without the benefit of any preseason games. Here's his new head coach Bruce. Arians talking about how his team is adjusting. So. Do thing. He him learning and what we do me learning what he likes Meeting in the middle and doing a lot of different things. But Not GonNa ask other twenty, one guys to learn something new. When? They've already had a good year of of in good experiences in the offense. So I would have liked to have a couple of preseason games but it didn't work out that way. You would have hoped all of them could get over the all especially the young players Tom, Brady welcome into the locker room and grow. But you know it'll get. We'll get through that I, think in a week. Maybe each have go talk to him. Oh how I wish we didn't have to bleep that word because it was so much more effective when you actually heard him, say it Louis, riddick. Join Jeff and I and the football conversation here in Lewis I want to start there how about the off factor a young player on the buccaneers and Tom Brady walks into the locker room, and now he's my team and my quarterback. What is that like? big time at you when you are much younger than other players on your football team and you've grown up high school, maybe even going through college and you've watched these guys play and then you finally get to them and you see them strap it on their pads. The same way you do going out on the practice field and conducting themselves in that you know in the extreme professional way that they do. I mean you. You tend to sit there and just stare out look I I remember as even a veteran player. Going out to Oakland and playing with the raiders in seeing Tim Brown who I had played against when we were when I was at Pitt, and he was at Notre Dame and meet just sitting there going and that's Tim Freakin Brown. Right there. The heisman trophy winner, the Tim Brown, and it was funny because I. Remember you know this thinking, why am I staring at him like this? But I mean, so so I get that and then quickly you know once you. Start getting into the different periods of practice. You start really compete. Knew it kind of dissipates and that leaves you. But I understand what Bruce's saying. That's the cool thing about sports, and that's the cool thing about being around guys like that. You WanNa be around people that elevate your preparation, elevate your level, play on the field and that you have some you have some. An all factor towards you want that I mean that just makes everyone else won't be better in Tampa, bay is going to benefit from that. I'm just telling you all those guys are GonNa practice harder play harder, prepare better because it's Tom Brady man, he has an Aston Martin Kark design for him. I mean come on. And Tim Hasselbeck you. It's on me an interesting story this morning about another guy, they call the goat. I remember when the Seattle Seahawks in two thousand and four signed Jerry Rice. You know I'm in the League at the time. My brother is the starting quarterback for the seahawks. He calls me like, can you believe we signed Jerry Rice and we talk about the off factor, your quarterback, he even though he's forty two years old at the time you know you just signed. The player that people said, not only the best wide receiver ever to play, but maybe the best football player to ever play it was almost like he was Giddy, couldn't believe it and you know Louis is right like. After a while. Now, you're just playing football, but you weren't watching him necessarily, and this'll be the case for Brady and some of the young buccaneers players. That you weren't watching them at high school and in college I mean were you were also watching them in. Great. The difference in age in the respect and all of that. So I. Think, between you know that that affect. Yes. But then Louis is point about it making everyone better. My brother also told me in Seattle. What happened is all those young wide receivers that wanted to head in the locker room. You know right after practice they all of a sudden started sticking around and watch what Jerry did after practice and try to do the things that he was doing because. Because he was the best in. So that's how people are going to respond to Brady. How about the other piece of this? Jeff. I. Come to you here on the idea that areas is bringing up that look. We're not going to change the offense that twenty-one guys know because one guy doesn't know it. But that guy is the quarterback, he is Tom. Brady. How's that going to work? Well agree, that was actually the plan going into this Bruce Arians, recognized right away and said to Tom Brady on the outset of the signing. Hey, look. We can do this one or two ways you could learn my offense and we don't have to teach all these other guys it. You're the greatest of all time you've the best recalled anybody I've ever met you and Peyton, manning or. We could make them all learn Europe which one makes the most sense to you and Tom Brady was immediately on board with the idea of learning offense into the point that. Everybody else has been making here Tom. Brady not locker room is also a very disarming human when you meet him, yes, there is an actor, but he will immediately disengage that and make sure that all things are good with you and I that's going to go a long way in this atmosphere as well. Just a super quick thirty seconds, your Tim Hasselbeck. If he's talking about, he's talking about terminology and stuff. He's not talking about what plays they're going to run. He's not talking about, no risk it. No biscuit kind of stuff for A. Old. quarterback, right. Looking, to do a lot of you know stuff conceptually that Brady's always done and so you know it is about learning the terminology and I think we make a big deal. Sometimes, it is hard. But just a peyton manning learned a new offense. He did fine at five went to the jets and was running a new offense. He did just fine. It's going to happen. peyton manning. Had Plenty of success, I would expect Tom Brady do the same thing. One Guy Learning new terminology is a lot easier than as Bruce said, twenty something guys learning a brand new terminology, leave it there for the Mumbai will come back. We have much more football to talk about this morning including another legendary quarterback, coming up a shot of Tequila, and that's not all Aaron. Rodgers describes the moment he found out the packers had drafted his heir apparent. You'll hear that next up on ESPN. Ra, back on get up and you are watching us on espn presented by Fan Duel. And there's only one more day until the NBA, season officially restarts Lebron James and the Lakers facing off against the rival clippers in the marquee game on opening night and Lebron was talking yesterday about his mindset gearing up for the restart as compared to the stretch run of any other normal season. Is that mind the different mindset of different fields to it but I want to be talking about phones off during his run? I can afford to continue to checking family. Every single day. I'm checking on my mom making sure. Everything is going well especially in uncertainty of what twenty, twenty watts all over. So I can't afford to do that and just lose contact with everybody. So but I'll be. Locked in as I, can't be under the circumstances. I won't. I won't cheat my teammates. Are Fans, and I won't cheat myself so. I'll be ready to go. I love that Lebron has thrown in the bubble. And there should be one for as well. Adrian asked joins US live from inside the bubble in Orlando and. Lebron talking about his mindset entering the restart? But what is the latest with his teammate Anthony? Davis? Obviously, the health of those two guys is the most important factor for the Lakers. While, he is continued to sit out laker practices with that I, injury that he suffered Saturday against Orlando and. Frank. Vogel. Has said that Anthony Davis status is unclear. For, the. Lakers opener. Here's the thing for the Lakers. Seating in this. Playoff. Tournament has takes on a lot less significance because there's no home court advantage. So there's no reason. For the Lakers to have to push Anthony Davis on the court and less. He's one hundred percent and remember to individually the all NBA voting the MVP voting. All of that is finished. There's no motivation for players either to go out and try to pat any stats here in the last eight games, you know the Lakers are going to be a very conservative with Anthony. Davis now makes all the sense in the world, the teams that can treat this really as sort of a preseason just to get themselves ready for August, seventeen start. Meanwhile, injuries are concerned always and Eric. Gordon helped off the court yesterday. What can you tell us about that? Guy Geico's now offering an extra fifteen percent credit on car and motorcycle policies. That's fifteen percent on top of what Gyco could already save you. So what are you waiting for your dentist to actually believe you and your flashing every day? Absolutely. Great. And, you're cutting down on your sweets. Of course. Wonderful.

It's throwing my functions way off second thing, bundle your home and car insurance with Geico, it's easy and we could save money. Lastly I know you're thinking of painting the nursery back to off white, but I'm actually feeling this baby blue didn't think it was my collar, but I, m pulling off Geico for Bundy, made easy. Go to GEICO DOT COM today. X Rays were negative last night and that left Ankle Greenie. But I'm told there early estimate for Air Gordon is potentially one to two weeks out of the rockets lineup. They'll no more today. We'll see how the ankle settled. Overnight, but he's an important part of this team. He's likely their best defender and they need him to be their third score behind Westbrook and James Harden, and this is a team Houston at his only a game and a half up. From the seven seed and. And in this first round of the postseason, you want to avoid the Lakers of the clippers and so not having him potentially for most or potentially all of these seating games. Could be a real issue for the rockets I agree, and that's a good point that you bring up at something for everyone to think about home court advantage doesn't mean anything, but seating means a lot because it depends on who it is. You wind up playing meanwhile a team trying to get its way into the playoffs is New Orleans. Zion. Is Back in the bubble. What can you tell us about his return? While he was able to practice with the team yesterday after clearing quarantine, and so he potentially has to practices yesterday today, and then a morning shootaround on Thursday. Before he would have to play his first game after having been away from practice for eleven days, and I think the opportunity for him to get enough rupp's here this week before the restarts. First overall game against you talk on Thursday I, think the opportunity for him to play. has grown with the fact that he was able to get on the court yesterday and I think there's some optimism that new. Orleans could have Zion there for that first game and certainly by Saturday against the clippers and every game is very important for them, and this eight-game run is they try to get into that play in. Against Memphis. No question. Incredibly important to watch and see Zion because there are different team when he's been out there. Outstanding to see you. Thank you. My Man. We'll check in again tomorrow. Meanwhile, let's run the bases around all the action from Major League Baseball yesterday first meeting the season between the dodgers and Astros. We lead with this that was the bottom of the sixth clear after Joe Kelly Kelly nearly hit three astro hitters and then jawed with Carlos. Correa. After an inning-ending strikeout dodgers up winning the game five to to going to talk about all this buster and just a second meanwhile, let me show you Anthony Ran. Don't he made his? Debut last night after missing the first four games of the season with an oblique injury and he got his first hit in style boy that is a laser to run shot in the bottom of the eighth. The angels beat the Mariners by tend to score, and then about hobby by as crushing his first two home runs of the season helped power the cubs to an eight five win over the reds it was by as seventh career multi home run game cubs are off to a good start their foreign one last time they started that way. They won the world series 2016. Meanwhile, here's the Big Story Major League Baseball postponing all of the MARLINS. Games. Through Sunday as a result of the recent corona virus outbreak, four more players testing positive yesterday. So the total is now seventeen members of their traveling party, the remaining two games between the Yankees and Phillies were also postponed. So the Yankees have now instead traveled the Baltimore where they will play a two game series starting tonight teams moving all over the place, and it led Andrew mccutchen now on the Phillies to tweet this quote. Come, on twitter to find out if we're playing or not I, don't wait for a text because I know the media knows the answer before US l. o. l.. So here's buster olney lot to get to this morning. Buster is mccutchen speaking for a lot of players in expressing frustration with the sort of fluid circumstances as he seems to be doing. Greedy I, think his texts reflexe skepticism among a lot of players about how Major League baseball handles its business I heard a lot of that yesterday in phone calls and texts especially in the aftermath of the Marlin situation people around the game players asking, how was it that after they had a positive test on Friday and then three more on Sunday, the Marlins phillies were allowed to play, and so it was interesting in the last twenty, four to thirty, six hours, the players are beginning to flex. Flex their muscles a lot more to try to dictate what's going to happen yesterday the nationals players voting didn't WanNA play in Miami. This weekend, it wasn't something that they wanted to to do Anthony. Rizzo. Of the cubs vodka, the reds exchanging text messages asking, Hey, how are you feeling? Are we gonNA play today I more that is going to happen greenies these hotspots pop up because let's face it push comes to shove remembered Manfred can't tell these players to play a game and especially with. The scheduled can be fluid. The players will push back a lot, get that totally and I think at some point, a decision is going to have to be reached because if the idea here is that once a player test positive at any team that team has to shut down for any period of time. This is just a waste of time that it's inconceivable that that isn't going to happen. So whatever the protocols are, they can't. Can't be that right buster and I. Totally get it. If the players say we don't WANNA play and they're just not going to be able to do it I. Guess what I'm trying to say is I see both sides of it. I understand the frustration of the players, but the idea that you're just going to stop the moment we have a positive test buster I think means you're done before you even begin does that That make sense I think that what needs to happen is is that the major league baseball needs to reestablish the credibility of the health and safety protocol the put in place because it's clear from the reaction to the Marlins and the phillies on Sunday that there was a lot of confusion about what was going to happen and what should have happened on Sunday that I totally get. Let me then get you to the other. Other. We lead this morning with what happened last night with the Astros on the dodgers and I, it's not a surprise. The dodgers lost to the Astros and the world series in two, thousand seventeen and the cheating and all the rest of that, and so last night Joe. Kelley, certainly looked like he was throwing at three of them including right at the head of Alex Bregman, what was your reaction to all of that yesterday? It's interesting when these situations pop up, we get asked us are going to be retaliation. So often it just comes down to the personality, the pitcher on the mound in the years that I've covered the Yankees, Andy Pettitte hated the retaliation stuff. He couldn't stand it anybody you talked to play with Joe. Kelly will tell you. He's okay with it, and in watching that last night, it felt like that when he went to that three Oh counting Alex, Bregman, it's like the light switch went. Went on and not only throw the pitch behind Bregman did woman Bregman was at first base. He was repeatedly throwing pickoffs. You wonder what? The intent was there that curb all Carlos Correa, the join I Joe Kelley has no problem with the Astros thinking. He's a little bit crazy I wouldn't be surprised if depending on the personality of the pictures, we have more this with the Astros as we go along. He didn't actually hit anyone. Do you expect baseball to do anything about it? No, because I think they will follow the lead of the Empire's who were onsite who waited to actually give a warning. Later after the correct pitch. Robert Stanbury only the third with the very latest and a very interesting stretch of baseball buster. Thank you now to the NFL where, of course, one of the most surprising moments of the entire just past off season still has to be when the packers traded up to draft Jordan laws as Aaron Rodgers potential replacement in the first round of the draft on a recent podcast, Rogers went into more detail of how he reacted to that pay. For my son's Keelan facetime. Then talked a bunch of people that night and the next day call Jordan I. Don't harbour any ill will on it. Like was I bummed out. Of course, wouldn't be you know like I wanted to play my entire career in green. Bay I love the city I grew up there really got the house twenty one. I'm thirty, six, nine, a lot changes take time, but look I get it. I see it completely clearly in not bitter about it just kind of is what it is. Boy There was a lot in that that is interesting and and and let's put Tequila side for a moment because that's what everyone seemed to focus on. But Lewis I want to focus in on one word. He uses the word wanted that is the past tense of the word want. So that's that's that's really no, there's no uncertainty in that. Right? That's Aaron Rodgers basically saying, I. Know that I am no longer going to play my entire career in Green Bay. Without a doubt looking, he's been through this before he's been on the other side of it. He's been the one who's been replacing a legend. So I think what he offered you, there was a window into. His innermost thoughts into the competitive makeup. One of the greatest quarterbacks, the plane, the NFL ever, and he is kind of showing you that, hey, look despite everything that I have accomplished and everything that I want i. also understand that the business of the NFL doesn't make doesn't wait for anyone and doesn't cater to anyone's personal feelings or desires or wants people will move on from you. You in a heartbeat when it makes sense from a business perspective, and that's what he sees being the writing on the wall for his career. In Green Bay. It's interesting to hear him talk about his timing Green Bay as being one where he grew up there because a lot of times you know you hear about players talk about those kind of things when they're in college. College and they had that same kind of connection to their to their mater about how they grew up as an eighteen nineteen, twenty year old and he's talking about being in. Green. Bay Wisconsin as like the same thing that you go through when you're going through college, which I think is really cool especially for someone as good as him, he understands that his time in Green. Bay. Bay is going to be directly proportionate to the development of Jordan love and how quickly he comes along and then or not. It just makes sense for them. Salary cap wise to move on, and it's something that they can live with, and that's you know that's a very humbling type of thing. I'm sure for someone as great as him to say, they're moving on from me. I'm the Great Aaron Rodgers, and they are moving on from me. It's hard to lend some real personal. You know kind of you. Kind of characteristics to this game that oftentimes we dismiss as being something that's non existent and it is existent. These guys really do take this game personal. No Question Jeff. I'm trying to read the look on your face, what what, what, what are your thoughts? Yeah. I don't. I. Don't believe Erin. I'm not calling him a liar, but I don't think he believes that he's done I think in his head and look I maybe i. Should be jumping into someone. Else's thoughts here. But to me Aaron, Rodgers is not the one to simply resign his job to a guy who has yet even step on an NFL football field. How many times have we seen a first round pick quarterback, not develop into, let alone a starter. The replacement for one of the legends of the game. So well, Aaron is saying that I, think that there is a psychological factor. You're also with him basically saying, really he's your guy. Let's see. Improve. Aaron is the type of guy who plays those kinds of head games and I'm not so sure that he's not doing that right here. I. Like that take meanwhile Tim, what do you expect from Rogers on the field this here? Why I think. We would all agree we probably have a pretty ticked off Aaron Rodgers US look at how he's played the last couple of years I think Aaron Rodgers is going to be poised to have a really good season. Is it going to be not that he's not been motivated in the past but? I see inherent thrown over forty touchdown passes being aggressive with the football and basically kind of along the lines of what Jeff is saying is going. Oh. Yeah. Like how does that look now 'cause I just do forty touchdown passes and you know what I'm. GonNa, do it again in two thousand, twenty one, and now the sudden that nick of Jordan love you. Looks even worse in by the way member, we should've taken a wide receiver because we that was a need for us, and then remember that season we're Devin funchess he opted out in. So we didn't have the wide receiver that we signed for it, and I still went through four touchdowns. I. Do think there is an element of that I think could happen. He's still that good. Good of a player, and that's why this feels weird. And when he says the word wanted, yeah, we've seen Joe, Montana place somewhere else. We've seen peyton manning. Brady's doing it. But those guys that didn't feel like they had as much good football still ahead of them is it feels like, Aaron. Rodgers. House. Right now, real quick Lewis in your view is around him go ahead. Yeah what what I was going to say was. I think what you saw less. What you saw last year those what you saw a transition in terms of how matlock floor one really sees the Green Bay offense going forward. It's not. It's not going to be the same quarterback centric offense that it was under Mike McCarthy where Aaron is this carrying team on its back. You saw that transition start to happen. This is becoming an Aaron Jones type of team. This has. has become a Sean mcvay type of offense. Meaning is going to run through the running game and obviously the quarterback gonNA play a huge part in it and I think that's kind of going to ease the transition a little bit to Jordan love that's not to say that air is going to be not going to be motivated. Of course, he's not going to lay down and say here. Jordan, it's your job but. But I think the transition's already in place by way of the by virtue of the way, they're trying to run this offense and affected they traded up to draft Jordan love. So eventually, they're going to try and move on from him. That doesn't mean that Aaron isn't GonNa. Maybe have one of his some very good seasons here over the next one to two years, but I think the writing is on the wall. Wall, he's acknowledging that although he's still going to go out there and perform like the all pro that he is not more on this a little bit later in the show, but we have other matters of football to get to coming up next. When will we see Trevor Lawrence and Justin Fields on the field? The President of the NC double made a very important statement about college football yesterday, you will hear it. You're watching get up and we are presented by Fan, duel. and. We are officially one month away from the scheduled start of the college football season. But so many questions still remain our ditch spoke with the president of the NC, double A. Mark Te about where he stands on how to start to season one month away from kickoff. Anything. Reduced it to see what happens when people returned to campus we do get to. Learn a lot competitor. Another Professional Sports Roy Jerry. Action. Sovereign. News of violence kicking. surprised. Shocked if. As we get into college sports that we don't have occurred. Whether someone? comes. down. Again, that was on the phone with Mark emery yesterday there with us this morning Paul Finebaum is here in Tim Hasselbeck continues with us as well. Heather, what? What are the most important things you took away from those comments and your conversation with Mark Amer in general. Well two points, the first one regards to the delayed, start the more people in positions of power like Emerson, who speak that publicly the more likely it seems it's going to actually happen in the season gets pushed back. The second point would be what he said in reaction to the MARLINS. It's what you do when you get those positive tests and he told me that as of right now he thinks it should be an individual campus testing program. I know conferences are trying to do better than the NCWA recommended seventy, two hour window testing. Testing before competition. But Greenie, I'm being told it's difficult for some schools right now to get those test results back within a seventy, two hour window. So testing continues to be one of the focal points for conferences and because it varies so much from state to state and county to county, it can still be an issue as campuses return with thirty to forty, fifty, thousand students joining those football players all the no question about it Paul. So you hear what they're suggesting that a delayed start might make sense what makes sense to you? Mark Emmett is making sense and I think the world, the end of the world is upon us because I find myself agreeing with what he told. Heather yesterday. But interestingly, as he is telling Heather, that is he is saying listen, we need more data. We need to see what the NFL to do we need. This is what happens when students get on campus. His organization is also green lighting schools like like Oklahoma and Kansas to. To play a week earlier. So there's so much contradiction here. If you're going to play a week earlier, what good does that do other than it gives you an advantage in the event that you have an outbreak. So there is so many mixed messages which brings us back to the original point that we've been having for months. Nobody is in charge Mark Emmer has the title, but he's just offering advice. That's it right now. That's correct. There is no obligation on the part of candidly almost anyone to follow what it is that he's suggesting Tim. Zoback you brought up an interesting thought in our meeting this morning on a day where. Yesterday where we saw so many NFL players opting out of the season. Many of them, leaving a lot of money on the table. What thought did you have as regards college football? Well seeing that and knowing that the NFL has done a pretty good job because they've had to negotiate with the NFL PA in terms of making the environment for NFL players. Safe. Think about if you're a college player where you know there isn't there hasn't been that negotiation hasn't been an advocate for you doing that and so now just put yourself in the position of being a nineteen year old college football player. That's got a walk into a coach's office and say, Hey, you know. Know what coach I just don't feel safe I'm not at high risk I. Just I don't feel safe doing that and what type of reaction you think you might get sure there might be some coaches that are understanding and they'll put their arm around you, but there'd be plenty of other coaches never really start to put pressure on that that you know that young player, and so I, think when you look at that, this is a really I feel kind of a dangerous situation. In. Probably, scary situation to be in if you are a young college football player that isn't really sure about playing heather, what are you hearing about that side of this? While no athlete scholarship is going to be in jeopardy if they don't WanNa play, let's start there. But that could create a backlog, right? What I'm hearing is that student athletes want to play. I think that's very important and I think that's one of the reasons that you're seeing a decrease in positive tests around campuses. It's because they get the message student athletes are trying what they, what they can do to follow those guidelines in the athletic guidelines on campus. But you know what? I'm also told there's nothing coach can do in terms of when when an athlete says, you know I don't want to go to practice because I'm afraid of the corona virus had that they're saying that and they just don't want to go to practice at six am. So there's also that issue as well. What do you think? Paul. Let me from pauline quickly off most of the. Most of the coaches impervious to this virus on know that sounds crass. But their job is to win college football games and I on campuses where you've had outbreaks a thirty five or forty or fifty positive testing. The coaches are saying we have to play none of these programs with those outbreaks had been shutdown greedy. So I don't think college football head coaches are really pay much attention to what their players are saying. They may have to some point, but not yet tim, I've got. Fifteen seconds for a quick final thought. Go ahead but listen, yes. Yeah. I'm sure not going to lose your scholarship life can be made miserable. I. Mean. We've seen it before with other players that that. Maybe you haven't seen eye-to-eye with a head coach I. Think there's that aspect of it and yeah, I think the vast majority of players are GonNa WanNa play much like the NFL. I. Think. The vast majority players of NFL players are GonNa, WanNa, play, but that doesn't mean there. There, isn't you know more than you would think that are uncomfortable with it. Especially, players that are looking at it and going wait I'm might be done with football in a year or two years from now. I, have no NFL aspirations like I'm not playing at Clemson. I'm playing at wake forest again, a different feeling about it. You know if that's your situation might be I have to leave it there for the moment guys. Outstanding. This continues to be probably the most interesting. Of all of the different subsets of of the reactions, Corona Virus in sports. Meanwhile, as we continue, this was totally different. Yesterday trash can revenge in Houston a near brawl between the Astros and dodgers. Is this a sign of things to come the answer on the way? On ESPN.

Effectively Wild Episode 1467: Strasburg Back

"And ended ADS savell a new low end. Welcome to episode. Fourteen sixty seven effectively wild made his guest Ben Graphs presented by unpatriotic supporters. I am a member of the ringer joined by similar of. ESPN closing Tabin. Wishing I tell you about some possums yes please thanks to some people who Passed on some information about possums and also opossums different. Technically should be possums right. The ones we're talking about. Yeah technically yeah all right so two things that that are key to this that I need to correct one is I thought it's so odd. The only animal that that does this in place de many animals have some version of playing being dead yet. But you didn't say what they do so I was saying what they do. They play possum. Many animals have some form form of playing dead and some even do something very similar. A many many of the plane deads are are fake. They're under the. We're going to get to this. But they're under the control of the animal but some it's somewhat automatic so for instance in the hog nosed snake a threatened individual rolls onto its back and appears to be dead when threatened by a Predator while a foul smelling volatile fluid uses from its body and predators such as cats then lose interest in the snake which both looks and smells dead. One reason reason for their loss of interest is that rotten smelling animals are avoided as a precaution against infectious diseases. In this case exploiting that reaction newly hatched young and also instinctively show this behaviour when rats try to eat them so To go back to the to the possum specifically yes the possum awesome here here. There's a few things one is. They are not playing dead at all. This is an automatic response than they go into shock. And so I'm reading this. This is an article by Bethany foster at animals dot mom dot me. I get that I get response but I I like Bethany is my favorite writer now. This article is a is a triumph. Okay playing dead is an involuntary response. The stress of the confrontation facing the possum causes him to go into shock. This shock induces a comatose state. Can last from forty minutes to four hours while dead. The opossums body is limp. Its Front feet. Formed into balls and drool runs out of its mouth. It may appear that. Rigor Mortis has begun the opossums guys of death. It goes so far as to produce a smell of decay from his anal. Glands opossums body emits Green Mucus. That will discourage most predators from feeding on him while while he's in his Co. motto state. This smell leads. The Predator to believe the opossums body is a rotting carcass. Unfortunately being run over by vehicles is now the most common way in which opossums are killed. The smell does nothing to help them in this situation. Yeah so that's pretty cool and I ve vastly underestimated the design the development of this adaptation. And it's fantastic and I'll never mock in a possum again. Yeah well I will still knock the predators for falling for this though. 'cause my initial reaction to that was but you just killed the thing or you just had it in your jaws and it was running around and it was warm and alive and then suddenly it excretes a foul odor order something and you say oh. I guess it's rotting but I probably overestimated the intelligence of animals. Animals are pretty done for me. I mean I can't blame them for not wanting to eat. Something that is excreting foul smelling ooze from its inaugural. I wouldn't WanNa do that either. But I it wouldn't be fooled. I don't think I wouldn't assume that it was actually long dead but still pretty unpleasant to eat. Now I think of the apostles the Avocado of the wild wild kingdom because similar to how an avocado is not ripe at twelve forty and two ripe at twelve forty six you think you have a meal l. and then it just goes bad on you and so you just go. Well I guess this one is one got sold past its expiration date or something and so I mean yeah if it smells bad you're probably hi not eating it. You're probably not going to be like well. Rationally speaking I know this is delicious Yeah that makes sense all right so Stephen Strasburg signed and we start. The podcast. Cast talking about possums but we had to get to old business. I anything else you want to say before we get to Strasbourg okay. So I've already written about this. This move for the ringer you can go read it and look at the graphs if you want but big news big signing big dollars. Lots of years nationals resigned Stephen Strasburg for seven in years and two hundred forty five million dollars in guaranteed money with a no trade clause and no opt-outs and a little bit of deferred money but not extreme extreme and it has to be paid pretty quickly after the end of the deal and it will have interest as well so not surprising. I don't think that Strasbourg resigned. The low obviously it was very possible that he wouldn't after he did opt out. But we talked about this before he had already signed one long term extension with the nationals. That would have kept him in DC through twenty twenty three and then he opted out of that the of course after his very strong season but he already envisioned himself as a national he had already committed admitted to be a national for years in the future. So it's not shocking that he still found that possible to envision and of course there's a long and fruitful relationship between the learners and Scott. Boris his agent never a surprise when Scott Boras client science with the nationals. And then you have the fact that the nationals just won the world series there in line nine for a revenue festival as cut explain and People by the way pointed out that there is a cherry blossom festival in DC. which may be what? Boris was actually alluding to there. So that makes it a bit more comprehensible. Although still he went along way for that one and then finally there is is the trend or what seems to be a trend for world series winning teams to bring back huge percentages of their roster. Just because they don't want to break up the band and maybe they have more money. I need to spend and there's good cheer Mike. Rizzo said a week ago that he had been drunk for a month so that he did get married after the world series stories. That was part of it. I guess a low. I don't know if you should be drunk for your whole honeymoon. That doesn't so much fun for your new spouse but anyway that's what he said and so maybe the Scott Boris Talk to him when he was in compromise state. I don't know or maybe he did an end around and talk to the owners anyway. Point is Strasbourg resigned. Not that surprising rising and kind of cool that he now will likely be a career national or there's a good chance that he will be which is always fun when a player can get paid and yet also oh forge that long term relationship with fans and of course he was the top draft pick. Can he had that exciting debut in the shutdown and all the rest so that in the postseason heroics exits nice. That he could stay there. But the surprise is the number of years and the hours because he had been widely predicted to make a lot less than this and moby trade rumors had him at one eighty. I think and I think this just blew up my entire offseason contracts draft. I think you win because I'm pretty sure I took the under on right. Yeah you weren't doing great as it was but not only did this a sink you way into native but it also seems almost certain now that Garrett Cole will yes we'll get much more than the two fifty six. I needed the over on that. Yes that's over. At Fan Crafts. The crowd had had him at. I think one hundred forty million Kylie highly ahead him at one hundred fifty so people were projecting him for five years or six years and instead he got seven with a higher average annual value. And I believe this is is the first time that a pitcher. This old has signed a deal. This long-term since Kevin Brown in nineteen ninety eight and that deal worked out. Fine and and Kevin Brennan was really good. And of course the Max Scherzer deal with the nationals has worked out splendidly so these things can work out but teams is obviously have been wary of committing to pitchers this age for this long but Strasbourg put himself in a great position for a big payday and obviously the market seems to be back to some semblance of what it used to be in. This is another example of that. Yeah did you know that. I don't know if you remember this but do you remember that when Maqsood signed signed the deal. Mlb execs voted it the worst free agent signing of the off season. I remember David Cameron putting it on his Like deals of the offseason list or something fan grasp but no. I don't remember that. Wow I I didn't remember it being seen as as as as that bad I Kim Roy. I vaguely recall thinking that it was good if they traded Strasbourg which is like a galaxy. Yeah ready to remember that too. Yes it was was like. They couldn't have both or something like that. They had too many pitchers they had the trade Strasbourg. He wasn't gonNA resign with them anyway or something like that but yeah I love the fact that he will be a one player a one team player. Just I I mean I don't think I don't. I don't need every player to be a one team player layer by any means. There are certain ones though particularly when the story starts so early in their career. When they're you know like with Strasbourg he was famous famous before he became a national and for him to be drafted first overall by this terrible team? That's coming out of a terrible well. It's was still all stock in a terrible spot. But he brought them into. This era is golden age in and it seemed like it seemed like the nationals. Maybe were were passed the Golden Golden Age. It seemed like maybe they weren't GonNa Win World Series. Bryce Harper had left and nothing's started to seem like they were on the decline and then he not single enderle but I mean there were like three pitchers on that staff in October and he was the best of them sort of single handedly pitches to them to the world series and now he gets to be a national for life so how many probably so. How many number one overall picks would you guess spend their entire career with one team so this is including ones sued? Just were bad. Never asked majors or barely know if you never made the majors you don't get credit for being on an interview. Sign somewhere else after herb. You never made the majors back. Then it's not gonna it's not going to. So what are there have been like fifty five of them or something so far somberly pass and yes of course Some of them are recent draftees. So Oh gosh I guess Eight yeah if you only count people who were drafted before Strasbourg. There were only four. And there's basically Carlos Correa says I think the only I think gray is actually the only one who currently only has major league experience and who would qualify. Of course there are others. Don't have major league experience but craic could be the six but yeah Al Chambers who played only fifty seven games. uh-huh in the majors so he barely counts Luke Hotel Var who was a royal his whole career. Not Dodger at all. That's who drafted afternoon. Didn't sign him right. I think so all right. That joke will make a little bit of sense. I don't even know what the joke was. And then Joe Mauer Chipper Jones and Joe Mauer Jones are are both great eight one team players. You know they're both local. They were both hall of fame caliber. MVP's batting champs the whole deal and So Strasbourg it fits into the category with I think Power Chipper Jones is in a way kind of the most satisfying number one overall picks ever along with. Of course Ken Griffey Junior. Yeah so so with any long term deal you have the generic wealth. This could go bad because pitchers get old and they get hurt and anything can happen. And obviously in Strasberg's case he's coming off a career year. I think you could say once you put together his regular season performance and his superb postseason performance. And he's he's lost some fast speed. He's lost a few miles per hour couple miles per hour in just the last couple of years and he has compensated and adjusted just fine. He's throwing more of other types of pitches. Lots of curveballs. Lots of sinkers and he has made it work fine for him and of course the changeup is still a good pitch. So there's no real trouble on the rise in it's always some wet worrisome. When pitchers lose velocity but almost all of them do unless it's Justin verlander basically so Strasbourg has tackled that challenge about as well as could be expected and the big question with him is and has been and continues to be durability and he answered that question as well as he could in one year with a career high single season innings total when you combine regular season and postseason so the big risk is? This is a guy who a year ago people didn't think he'd even opt out of the deal. which would have paid him for years? one hundred million after this year and end completely changed that perception in one year and it became an obvious decision for him to opt out but if he changed it from an obvious no too unenvious. Yes yes in one year then of course it could change back. He is someone who's been on the injured list in his career nine times. He has many years removed now. Oh from Tommy John Surgery so there's always a concern there. He is not really an established. Were course he's coming off a season when he was one of the best pitchers in baseball But hasn't been that year in year out necessarily at least for a high number of inning. So that's a concern but makes a lot of sense for the nationals to bring it back because they had had the payroll room and they're really tough division and they needed to bring back at least one of Strasbourg and Renan. We can talk about what this means for condoned but this puts them right back into the thick of things really if you look at the projections on fan graphs for the depth charts of the teams. Actually the mets on top. Stop if you can believe it and projected war I don't okay and then the braves and the nationals are essentially neck and neck. So if you believe leave that which we've established that you don't the mets case they would really need to make one more impact move to make themselves the favorite in the least so yes they just won. The world series is but the phillies wheeler. And we're already a decent team and may make more moves and the braves of course have been very busy and they've been signing guys left and right and the mets swell. The mets traded for Jake Maricic. But they also have a full season of Marcus stroman other really good players. So it's definitely not like they have that at least locked up. They have to keep making moves. They're sort of right in that sweet spot where everyone might matter a lot. So as to the durability question with Strasbourg I was really is wrestling with this question of whether his injury record is worrisome because he has missed a handful of starts in a bunch of his seasons or if it's really encouraging because he hasn't had a major injury in in almost a decade he Tommy John Surgery when he was a kid kid the twenty two year old and recovered from that very well and has otherwise not had any Any Carina real like he hasn't had any major surgeries he hasn't had anything that's been like real chronic or anything like that. He doesn't like blister issues or like a bad back or degenerative hip or anything like that and and obviously you prefer your ace to to make thirty four starts but in this day and age. I wonder if being able to say well you know. Twenty twenty eight on average average is really all you really expect from a modern pitcher and his his history of not suffering major injuries sort of career altering injuries. That would really ruin a deal. Deal is actually quite a benefit and add to that the fact that you know. Because he's missed a little time here and a little time there. He hasn't been heavily work in one of the reasons that obviously he proved it wrong but one of the reasons that people didn't were skeptical of shirts or is a free agent is that he had thrown more pitches than anybody in baseball for some time period before he was he he he thrown a lot and people worried that the cumulative effect and it is true if you start to do the actuarial tables of thirty year old pitchers who throw in a lot of winnings the breakdown probably true pitchers who don't throw a lot of innings either. I wonder if Stephen Strasburg is perhaps in the sweet spot of having neither thrown a ton huntings nor really shown any any fragility. Yeah I mean. I guess there's less surgery was after the twenty thirteen season. He had some sort of minor elbow thing. I think just like a cleanup of loose bodies of the term loose bodies. But I don't think he's had a surgery since then he has had some elbow new strains or like forearm nerve things. He's had a couple of nerve injuries but yeah like obviously nothing career threatening. I mean I guess that almost it goes without saying because if he'd had multiple career-threatening injuries he wouldn't be getting this deal. I mean he is kind of like in that spot where he's durable enough to get a deal like this but also pretty injury prone for a pitcher who gets deal like this right. I mean I guess you could say that that if he had had a more severe injury recently than keep wouldn't get this. I can't put for someone. Who did there are quite a few red flags or the things that he's had to transcend? Yeah I it's hard to. I mean not many obviously. Not Many pitchers get a delightful. Nominee pitchers are in position to get gotTA deal like this is so it's hard to find a But you know you look at sack. Wheelers deal Zack. Wheeler is obviously not needed and get two hundred forty five million dollars but he got that one hundred twenty million dollars and he is you know not nearly as good a pitcher Stephen Strasburg and has a very recent injury. History of of major injuries injuries. That that was only two or three years ago and he's still got he's still got five hundred twenty million which is more than we were we were expecting and so it is true. You're right I it might be that that. This is a logical conundrum where I will never find a pitcher who has both major injuries and also two hundred and forty five million dollar contract or a seven year contract contractor or anything like that. But I don't know I guess I'm just a offering the more optimistic. Take on his on his workload on his history. Yeah Yeah in two thousand eighteen. He pitched what one hundred thirty innings or something and he had a couple Alston's so that was concerning coming into this year and then he put those concerns to rest about as well as he could have. Yeah if there's anything to worry about in fact it might be his innings this year once you include postseason. Are you know a lot. Like what did he. He threw twenty thirty like thirty four postseason innings so he threw almost two hundred and fifty more than two hundred and forty innings this year which which is A career I in in high for anybody. I don't know what the current research is on postseason hangover effect for starting pitcher workload but it is certainly something that people people talk about. And and maybe you could say that It was his maybe the thesis I had for his well-managed workload in sort of a lab beneficial workload. Maybe that bought him this year. And maybe now that's all old news because he just threw two hundred and forty some innings. Yeah so when we talked about the new crass knicks the Rogers's. ESPN poll of Front Office. People in Baseball insiders twelve of the fifteen that were surveyed. said that Brendan was the more likely player to return to the nationals. And says but Strasbourg has and I think if I were choosing between them I am. I don't know like on. The one hand Renault is probably a better player in a more dependable player. Just as a position player even but also I could see how how it might be more beneficial for the nationals to lockup Strasbourg if they were only going to sign one just because the nationals top prospect and one of the top prospects in baseball baseball is Carter key boom. He played some third base in triple A. This past year he can play third base. So you have a ready replacement. They're obviously not like one to one for rendering at least not this year. But that someone you could envision taking over that spot whereas if Strasbourg walks than you can't really replace him with someone who's just as good without signing another big pitcher or at least they don't really have one who's ready right now in the same way so I see why this might be more vital on the other hand. I just don't see why they can't do both. I know that Mark Lerhner the nationals principal on her. He said he implied that they couldn't do both. And that was what Boris was responding to when he came up with his revenue festival. But just looking at the payroll right now. Even after signing in Strasbourg there at a projected payroll of one hundred sixty six million according to roster resource at fan grass and that means they could theoretically sign reknowned for say thirty five million a year and be below the competitive bounce tax threshold still pending other moves that they might make but the team has been around the two hundred million dollar level in payroll the past couple of years rendent Strasbourg were making combined. More than fifty million this year. So it's not as if they're getting enormous raises really so I don't really see especially given the world series revenue boost. Why they couldn't afford to bring both those guys back exo? Maybe learner was just negotiating and trying to set expectations low or maybe he actually meant it but if they don't bring background donut it seems it would be more a case of just not wanting to spend the money than not being able to spend speaking of quotes that you can interpret a little bit differently now that this contract contract is done. It was exactly one day earlier that the report leaked that the Yankees had offered Garrett call seven years in two hundred and forty five million dollars which is is the exact same deal that Strasbourg got an of course. Scott Boras is both of those people's agent and presumably. Had a pretty good idea that Stephen Strasburg was about to sign a deal for something like seven years in something like two hundred and forty five million dollars in the Garrett Cole would end up signing something for much much more and so I've been thinking about who who leaked this us and what they were trying to get out of it and so you have basically two possibilities either the Yankees leak debt. Because they wanted to be you know caught trying and they want into maybe create a an anchor around that number seven to forty five and in that case it's sort of hysterical thinking that they were just so unaware of what was coming that they actually thought like we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA leak seven to forty five and look like really aggressive like twenty four hours later. They just just look like they're seventy five and a half million dollars shy and it's like it's like the scene where like you know. The character doesn't doesn't realize that like the like the monster is like behind them. And then you start a enjoying life or it. Scott Boris who or not necessarily surly. Boris Boris aside. The agency side. That that leap this in which case it's kind of an odd flex like yeah. You know. You're you're sort of like hanging the Yankees out to dry your because you know that the next day you're GonNa just blow that number up and I don't exactly know l.. What Boris would get out of leaking but now he knew if he did leak that I mean if if if he was the source of that I guess the I don't even know if it's right to call these things leaks leaks? This is just part of the bookie button. If he was the source of that he knew probably that the exact numbers were probably coming out the next day for a different different pitcher. It's kind of interesting. Because he knew them both he knew it all. He knows too much for the teams to compete. I know he's cornered the market. I mean they should really write a play about about Scott. Boris representing the top three free agents and in Australia. Yeah so his quote on Weisberg signed and before coal which I sign. Jon Heyman tweet is markets are like flowers the beauty begins from below. So what I don't know I I mean I guess he means like you starting low and growing from there it. It doesn't make any sense anyway. I think he's implying that the numbers are going to get bigger from year and obviously they are so. This is a record contract in terms of total dollars and in terms average annual value. But it's going to be a record contract only until Garrett Cole signs which from the frequency of the rumors flying around might also happened this week. We'll we'll see but this will be a record for probably less time than Bryce Harper's contract was a record before Mike Trout scientists contract but either way a Boris client hits the record but it's funny because Jayson Stark had written on the day Strasburg signs that there might be a two hundred eighty million dollar deal out there for Garrett Cole all and is boggled and we thought wow two hundred eighty million now that looks like the absolute floor. Because I mean Cole is more than two years a younger than Strasbourg. Strasbourg at seven years. You could imagine coal getting nine years but even if he gets eight I mean he'll obviously get aid and even if he got eight and the same a V that Strasbourg got. That's eight hundred thirty five that's eighty right there. And that's the absolute minimum that he could possibly get. Now I think and so maybe he goes over the maybe he goes to nine years. Maybe both of those things but seems clear that it's going to be over three hundred and possibly by a margin I saw reference to the I think this was a is might have actually been Jayson stark writing this but a reference to the now the race for the the chase for call and how you know the the Yankees will put their best offer forward in the angels will see if they can like hang with the Yankees. And the dodgers will try to think in creatively and I That you know hearkens back to the bryce Harper thing last year where they weren't going to give Bryce harper thirteen years and three hundred million dollars but they were we're willing to break tradition and give him a four year deal with much much higher average annual value and. I'm just wondering what the equivalent would be. I wonder what the dodgers creative option would be. I wonder what is what what is left for creativity on contracts. I would like to see teams. Get more creative. I would like it to be so there to be. Ah Yeah well no no please no swell on so I would like to see a lot of different shapes of contracts so that you aren't simply going well is that number bigger than the when I was thinking of like I liked the chase. Utley deal a few years ago where there were like three vesting options and one was a club option and then the next next was a player option than the next was a club option. But only if the player hadn't exercised its option. And you had three hundred plate appearances or something and you just stared at it for like doc forty minutes trying to figure out who who want. Who who is benefiting from each clause and I like those deals for variety sake all right so that Strasbourg couple? Quick things wanted to mention. Also I don't know if you saw Fabian tweet. Joe Madden said that he would consider or dropping the D. H. on days that Shohei Ohtani pitches next season which means there's a possibility that Otani will be a true two way player and and that would be fun for us. Obviously if Otani hits on the days that he pitches which seemed like it would probably be an impossibility once he signed with the Al Not at least in Non Interleague Games. And I don't know whether this is smart or not. It would probably take some math and projections to figure out because because obviously it depends partly on how deep you think Otani could go into games. And how good do you think he will be. And he's coming off. Tommy John Surgery and it's it's it's hard to say like he's not going to be a workhorse. So will he go deep enough into games to make this worth it because once he has pulled from the game. If you don't have at the age then you're our relief. pitchers have to hit and that might hurt you more than Otani helps you so especially especially because the days that Otani goes deep are the days that you need the least offense in the days rid of tawny goes out. That has to leave early. And you're we're going to be going through a maybe a bunch of pinch hitters. Those are the days that you're probably trailing in need to catch up and actually need the offense a lot more And might need to stretch your relievers. There's more which would mean not wanting to pinch hit for them and take them out of the game. Yeah and obviously it depends on. What does this increase the stress on? Otani I don't think ah it would in a market way but of course I don't really know and madden also said something to the effect of. He doesn't want to treat his players like they're made made of China or something like he he wants to use them and to encouraging at least that It certainly seems like he's not thinking about unto weighing Otani Johnny this. I don't know that this is a recommended move but I kind of hope it happens. It also may be dependent on like what do the angels actually have. Any the other starting pitchers next year do they sign Garrett Cole or someone because if they don't then they're gonNA be piecing together a ton of innings with their bullpen and then they might wanna use roster spots on bullpen pitchers instead of a pinch hitter. 'cause you need a good pinch hitter to make this work probably and maybe A. B. That's more feasible because you have the twenty six pastor spot next season so you could carry that dedicated pinch hitter. Who's kind of been retired and phased out of the game and could come back but again the angels just got through this past season throwing I think many more earnings from their pen than their rotation? So if they're going to try to do thanks again then they may just have to stockpile relief pitchers. Yeah and the dedicated Pinch hitter that you have if you had one if you had a good pinch hitter if the investment in a a player who was able to hit but not feel because he was older whatever you don't have a D. H. Spot Forum most days because now Shohei Otani is your d. h. and also is batting when he pitches and so it would really be somebody who would only pinch hit. Presumably if you're good better Yep Yep all right so we will see if that actually pans out just saw some breaking news that the draft next year is moving from New Jersey to Omaha which is something that was floated this past year. But it didn't seem like it would necessarily be a permanent thing. I think that's kind of cool. Don't have much to say about it but it's nice because it might mean that more of the players will actually actually show up and there will be a live audience at the event and it will have some energy as opposed to an MLB network studio in Secaucus where almost no one shows up. And it's not really scintillating TV. So I think that's a positive and the last thing is that Marvin Miller and Ted Simmons were collected to the hall of fame by the Modern Baseball. Eric Midi. Jj Fee. And I talked about the Marvin Miller question on a recent episode. I'd say you can go back and listen to that. The quandary is that Miller said while he was still alive that he did not want to be inducted and now he has been Jay thought and I tend to think I think that it probably does more good than harm to put him in even though it was against his wishes and even though it's so overdue and belated that it's almost comical that it took this long and it only took this long because of cowardice in resistance to Miller among people on the committee and maybe not wanting to to be there to give a speech and now it's like well he won't show up at the induction ceremony and excoriate anyone so they'll put him in now which It's not the time that they should have put him in. But he's just been so important baseball but I think at museum about baseball should have a plaque for Marvin Miller and hopefully it brings more attention to what he's done. The Ted Simmons thing. I think Simmons's deserving think he sort of on the lower end of deserving but but deserving and it's interesting that he credited sabermetrics people for getting him in 'cause he's not necessarily the the number one cause of sabermetrics people but I guess the numbers have helped him a bit what continues to confound to me is the people who don't get in and the vote totals for other other people so Simmons and Miller got thirteen votes and twelve votes respectively. You needed twelve of the sixteen to get in. Then you have Dwight Evans with eight. Dave Parker with seven Steve Garvey with six and Lou whittaker with six and it just it seems very inconsistent. Like I don't know that Simmons is better than Dwight Evans. I don't think he is. It makes no sense that they parker and Steve. Garvey got more votes or as many votes as Lou. Whitaker Ludicrous such a clearly deserving hall of Famer famer that I don't understand how Simmons gets in and whitaker dozen was. It's just kind of the people on this very small committee just tap into like him better or or have seen him play more have relationships with them or or whatever it is so. It's disappointing that those people did not get in but good that a couple of people did who was the. What was the voting body? This this time it was executive so Sandy Alderson. David glass the former royals owner. Walt jocketty DOC ID Doug Melvin and Terry Ryan and then some media historians Bill Center. Steve Hurt Jack. O'CONNELL Tracy wrinkles be and then some hall of fame players George Brett Rod crew. Dennis Eckersley Eddie. Murray Robin Yount. So kind of a mix. Yeah it is odd. I mean feel like Ted Simmons has been one of the names you hear about is a is a snub for a long time but But not I don't know kind of I don't know if not not fallen out of fashion. But he was not at the top of the list. WHO's not one of the first four or five names that you heard and so it is? It isn't would be interesting to find out what the rationale is for all these. If Ted Simmons is in for any reasons that you and I would agree with or if the fact that Steve Garvey gets more than Lou Whitaker suggest that this is just That they have a completely different process for deciding these things and it just so happened to sweep up. Ted Simmons this time and Herald openings last time and yes and not Lou Whitaker and but some but also not a bunch of other leaders. Who shouldn't be in there? Yeah Yeah Anyway. No no Baines. Is this time so guess we take what we can get. So this is chase up these deal from Chase at least new deal is worth twenty seven million dollars but if he stays healthy it can max out at seventy five million dollars. Received three vesting options each worth fifteen million dollars on top of to guarantee years each of his options invested five hundred on her plate appearances. Okay so that all seems fairly simple but then it gets a little more complicated when you spell it out ugly will receive fifteen million dollars. Guaranteed in two thousand fourteen and ten million in two thousand fifteen. It's already kind of odd. Because he's now getting more money upfront which is not very common but he did he can also earn an additional no five million in two thousand fifteen if he is not on the DL for more than fifteen days with a specified in the condition. The contract also includes a two million dollar buyout buyout and a full. No trade clause formula for his best thing options is straightforward. He needs to reach five hundred plate appearances. In Twenty fifteen guarantee himself. A fifty million dollar salary and sixteen ECKSTEEN. The same math applies in sixteen and seventeen if he falls short of five hundred plate appearances. In any of those seasons his option would then revert to a conditional club option and the value of those options would range from five million to eleven million depending on how many days he spent on the disabled list the previous season so well you need a whole podcast to break that down. Yeah my head is spinning. We did a podcast to Barack Obama's eight thousand thirteen. All right. I I just saw also that MLB will no longer be testing minor leaguers for marijuana use which is good and sensible. That's always been one of these weird things where minor leaguers were not in the union so they were subject to tests and suspensions whereas major leaguers were not so. What does that mean that? They're not testing is it. Is it still just not bent. No it's not been substance. So the even circumstantial evidence or like being like like they just a non on issue. Now I think so yes. It's part of the program for testing for opioids which will be more of a treatment program than a punishment program which also seems good. Okay all right so I brought a topic. I was not anticipating that we would have a Strasbourg signing to talk about beforehand so we may get get through half of this. I guess and maybe we can finish the second half next time. Must there's a million more signings to talk about. But I was recently sent a copy. Be of the new bill. James Handbook which comes out every year round this time and it is mostly a reference book it is stuffed with stats on the league in every player defensive pensive stats pitching stats every sort of stat. Really many of which you can find online but not all of them and it's also kind of Nice to have a hard copy because you can just flip through it and see things that you wouldn't have known to look for anyway. It is not entirely a reference book. It also has some essays every year and bill. James always writes a few things for and he wrote a quite lengthy essay for this edition of the book which he calls the aesthetic issues or fifty ways to stop baseball from being swallowed swallowed up by home runs and strikeouts so it is Essentially a list of ways to fix baseball's aesthetic problems. It is not actually fifty waist is thirty waste because he ran out of ways at thirty but kept the title at fifty and no. There's an editor's note that says Well he read out of steam so he doesn't get the fifty you know. Here's my aesthetic fix fix for baseball. You only play six innings and at the end you say it was nine. Yeah well he talks about the the shortening baseball games thing so anyway he He weighs this out. I'll read a couple of quick passages. Basically he says baseball has economic economic problems and aesthetic problems and the economic problems are probably far more serious and also intractable but the aesthetic issues which are maybe not a serious. Chris are more easily solved and that is what he is trying to do here so he says I am not saying that. Baseball is currently selling an ugly game or an aesthetically unpleasing game. I will leave that up to you. You can like the matter game you can hate it. It's your call. The essence of the aesthetic problem is this that has baseball players have gotten to be bigger stronger and better trained to very narrow. Athletic skills have threatened to crowd out of the game. A wider range of athletic attributes says obviously nothing that we haven't discussed on the show. He he continues. Historically the essence of baseball has been the contest between fielder and base runner. A strikeout historically was the relatively rare event in which a batter failed so so completely that he was unable even to create the contest between fielder and base runner. The home run was the relatively rare event in which a better succeeded so completely that he denied the fielder. Are there any chance to make the play overtime. However both strikeouts and home runs have been increasing in frequency for one hundred years? The marginal events have been becoming more common and the central events have been getting less common and less important so this is mostly about home runs and strikeouts in the ways that they are increasing in their highest rates. It's ever but he also tackles the time of game in the pace of play and the fact that games are longer than ever to so he says that up until about Nineteen fifteen fifteen baseball regularly adjusted. Its rules to fix problems like this. But he says that at some point it seems like he's saying maybe in the late seventies Zor so by that time. The problem arose the idiotic self-destructive idea had taken hold. That baseball was a perfect game in which the rules never needed to be adjusted for new new realities. This paralyzed the game for forty years which frankly pitch baseball into a death spiral. We've just begun to escape that paralysis and try to fight to save the game and then his last point essentially is that. This isn't as hard as people think it is people adopt radical and harmful solutions to problems. stuff like cutting the Games to seven innings or going to three balls for a walk into first strikeout or banning defensive shifts because they don't see that there are transparent noninvasive ways ways to address the same issues. Let's try a scalpel before we bring out the bones us. Oh He's not saying that we should do all thirty of these things at once. But he's saying that individually speaking he approves of these thirty suggestions so I'm just going to go through them and You can give me A. Ah Yes no and where relevant I will mention anything that he points out to to clarify. What exactly is suggesting? So he starts with the the pace of play length of game stuff and he says the big problems are better stepping out of the box between every pitch and unnecessary and constant pitching changes so his first suggestions are one prohibit players from stepping out of the batter's box after the at bat has begun. I should say some of these are things that have been discussed ad nauseam. Some of them are what no one's ever said that before. This is wild so it really runs the gamut so number one stepping out of the box. He can't do it after the has begun or number to limit the number of times that a better can step out of the batter's box after stepping into the batter's box to let's say one per team per inning thing and he says this is more of an umpiring policy change than a rule change. Because you're not really supposed to do these things and it's just a pious let let players get away with it and so if they stopped granting timeouts that would essentially fix the problem my feeling I had this conversation recently. I and it's fine. Yeah sure sure I would not be opposed to it but my feeling is that batteries. Don't step out of the box very often. It's a very small part of it these days I mean most. The delay between pitches is driven by the pitchers. And I find that there's very little batter driven pace still in the game so I don't know if I don't know if I'm wrong. I don't know if your senses that that I'm wrong about that but I would consider this to be fine but not really much of a fix like ten years too late because for the most part the there are already restrictions on when you can step out and most batters don't don't do it they go to the back corner of the box and they take breath and then they get right back in there. Yeah I do you think that the pitcher is a bigger problem and he acknowledges in here. Sometimes that some of these rule changes would not really directly address the problem or or would not fix fix the problem on its own that it's just something that should be on the books and might help a little and and wouldn't hurt so his whole purpose here is basically to Intervene without making it very obvious and obtrusive that these are things preferably that fan might not even notice from the stands this but they will work their magic and have some effect so now. He's talking about pitching changes and he acknowledges the rule that seems to be coming for twenty twenty. The pitcher has to face three batters. Finish the INNING. He says he likes that. It's good it will help. But let's see how much so his suggestion here or one of his suggestions as a team may make as many pitching changes as they want in a game between innings also any pitcher may be taken out of the game at any time after he has been charged with a run allowed in this inning. Beyond those two situations a team may remove a pitcher from the game in mid inning without a penalty. Once a game and only once. You've only got one free shot to remove a pitcher who has not given up a run in the sending from the mound in the middle of the inning and then to enforce that there would be a penalty of some sort. He suggests that maybe just assessing a ball would be enough to do it because often you're bringing in a pitcher to get the tune advantage and maybe giving the batter. A ball would indicate that but he says he'd favor an even stronger. Penalty is that the next hitter takes first base and that all runners who are on bass move up a base. Boy It is a problem. It's not a problem that it happens but if you have a problem with the pace of the game that is like a huge part of it and the fact that those pitching changes come at the most exciting moment and that they take us away into the land of like car commercials and it does kill the momentum. I think it would be my ideal would be that there would be no warm ups and that you could get the pitching change done in a minute and twenty seconds and I'd You have to leave the field of play because then I feel like the tension would be potentially be ratcheted up as you're waiting but not my call them. It's not my fifty ideas I do. I like limiting pitching changes mid inning to one per game not particularly. I don't like one per game. Things generally only speaking. Yeah feels like you're you're imposing that constraints in kind of heavy handed way like that. Does that different to me from now. It's three balls and two who strikes or heart seven innings of. It's less less extreme but philosophically speaking it seems sort of along those lines. I would like it more if it were none per game than one per game game. Yeah but no. You don't WanNa have pitchers left out there. I mean I I like that pitchers can have I personally. Like pitchers can have very specific roles. I feel like they ended up having well defined careers as as a particular type of of journeyman laborer like there. I think that's a I was you you guys Was this podcast here that we were talking about the GIG economy and how relievers or the GIG economy so well. I thought that was an interesting using idea. But I think of relievers as being the different people on a construction crew and You know each one has their own craft their own skill that they spent years honing and Making every pitcher have to get through an inning is not quite my cup not it will be. Yeah I'm fascinated to see what happens to do. Some of the Lougee is and Louie's have kind of gone away but there are still some who are more lougee like than others. I think. Susan's lesser recently reported. Noted that the as were not going to bring back Ryan butter even though ran buckner has been quite good because he has been one of the pitchers who would be most most affected by the new role about the length of adding so there will be. Some classic pitchers presumably who will be sitting on the sidelines next season because of this rule directly so all right considering or continuing here we have more to number four so four five and and six and seven. These are all kind of rapid fire in that same vein so limited team to using three pitchers in the first nine innings of a game. That's number four. Four or number five limited team to eleven pitchers on a roster or number six limit. The number of pitchers who can be used in a series so maximum of seven seven pitchers in a three-game series pitchers in a four-game series. Let's say with an increase of one for each four extra innings of their extra innings and then his seventh one is to prohibit any pitcher from pitching in consecutive games period. Yeah that's that's a strong one so all right I. I'M GONNA go back on whatever I just said about construction. Crews I like the three per game okay per nine innings to me. That's a nice number and it seems like it would have a good limiting effect and yet in it would you. I like counting pitches. I'm really into counting pitches and it would force you to count pitches ages. I also I do like the number of pitchers per series because I I like the idea that what you do in one game can have some benefit or or harm for your next game. I like all sorts of things where the result of one game has some some carryover effect ripple effect on the nature of. Yeah so I like that. If I were to do that I would say unlimited pitchers extra innings extra innings is the no limits. Do whatever you want. So you'd still only get your seven and three games or whatever ever in the first nine innings but you can have as many as you want an extra innings back to back games feels a little too. I Dunno feels like a little league rule to me feels like it. It feels like you're protecting feels more like a move to protect pitchers than than not then to To regulate them regulate their use it and a and. I don't think that it's necessary to protect them. I don't think that's what Bill James's suggesting it would be four but I think that's what it would be seen as than the last one was limiting to a certain. A number of pitchers on a roster seems fine to me to do that. Yeah I'd probably would be in favor of it. I don't know what the ramifications on a on otani would be with that right. Well there's already. That's a consideration for next year right that you have to designate Two Way Player and player has to qualify for two way status in certain in West. So that's that you couldn't use a two way player as one of your eleven because disadvantage and yet if you allowed If you allowed extra pitchers if they were two way players you might see all sorts of chicanery where you know you start seeing pitchers who are put at second base for one game a month to get qualification to weigh status or something like that so it seems like it can be tricky to have clear definitions of who pitchers are aright number. Eight is also an attempt to reduce pitching changes. So if a pinch hitter is announced and the other team brings in a different pitcher. The team at Bat may withdraw the Pinch hitter and may use him later in the game in other words being announced as the pinch hitter does not mean that he is in the game does not mean that the other player has been replaced it merely signals and intention to put the other player in the game. He's not actually in the game until you throw him a pitch and then thinking there is that managers. I would bring in as many pictures because they wouldn't be getting. They couldn't much benefit out of it can guarantee the platoon advantage. Because you could just Wealthy you could pull back the the pinch-hitter that you had announced right and so the defense would say well if I bring in a reliever here they're just gonNa pull him back anyway and unlike the current situation where I know that they can pinch pinch hitter. I'm not even making them. Burn Two batters soviet-backed. I'm making them burn. No batters I don't have a good feel for how this would play Out It seems. I don't think you should be able to announce a players in the game and then take him out of the yeah. I like the idea that in baseball you can be in the game without actually appearing your. Yeah I don't think I do but we did US tap last. I think I might have done an article on pinch hitting the Chitter and yeah the idea that you can show up get stretch you can stretch and as you work up a sweat and all that so that you can be a professional athlete and your job. That day is to be announced and then leave I like that. Yeah you appeared. You did a game. I don't I don't want him to be back. Okay all right number nine. He wants to start enforcing the rule that the pitcher pitcher is supposed to have his foot on the rubber when he delivers the pitch. Because he says there's been a a creep here where people used to talk about pitcher's throwing a fifty nine foot fastball which was considered cheating. Now it's a fifty seven foot fastball. And he thinks this is a part of the cause for the increase in strikeouts. This rule rule five point. Oh seven that he says routinely being ignored and the explains that. It's easy to see why it's being ignored because you can just go bit by bit by bit and it's it's very difficult for an empire to see and call in the moment and so you get away with a little bit and you can keep going a little bit more and more each time and so he suggests that to enforce this in the least intrusive way possible you could have say special empires maybe replay Umpires who look at the video radio. The Games after the fact and they see which in slow motion were illegal and track that data and publish it. And so if there's A pitcher who is a repeat repeat offender and he's always not touching the rubber than you can warn them find them suspend them etc or you could allow a protest asked during a game so say want to game after a strikeout. The manager could protest that the pitch was illegal and you could review the tape and find that he wasn't touching the rubber and you give him a do over basically and so that would be a pretty effective deterrent. In theory of the fifty. Seven foot fastball. Can you throw throw a pitch and stay on the rubber. I assume so rate I mean are any of them doing it well at this point I don't know that anyone is And so we would be turning everybody into nineteen thirties pitcher basically which I mean I get it because you've I've got guys throwing harder than ever and they're bigger than ever and so they're already getting that pitch on top hitter's sooner so there's a benefit there. I don't have a problem with pitcher's throwing the way they throw. It's not clear to me. It's not obvious to me that this is as pervasive as games as saying like. I don't doubt that it is but it's just something that I haven't relief noticed and so it's it's hard for me to say that it's imperative that we ban it immediately but I am generally in favour of getting hitters a chance to make contact and if that comes from keeping pitchers on the rub against that like it wouldn't necessarily affect affect what they're doing that much I mean. You could just couldn't use stark from further back or something like you wouldn't necessarily have to completely Redo do your delivery. I don't think so. I'm this is a new concept to me so I'm just GONNA. This is pretty new to me too. The idea is that when a pitcher a modern pitcher pitches he throws he. You know he he's he's leaping off the mound. Basically we're not talking about we're not talking about Jordan Walden here. There's no skip knowing on. There's no like double staff or anything like that. It's just that in the process of of Sh- firing their body toward the mound. They come off a toward the the plate. They come off the rubber before the ball has technically left their fingertips That they've kind of slid away from the mound so they start on the mound. They do their stretch. They a they push off the mound and as they're pushing off the mound their foot comes out of contact with the mound before the ball has left eye fingertips and presumably almost every pitcher pitcher. Almost every pitch. Yeah so. I'm looking at the comment. To rule. Five point seven eight. It says in the wind up position pitcher is permitted to have his free foot on the rubber rubber in front of the rubber behind the rubber or off the side of the rubber from the wind up position. The pitcher may deliver the ball to the batter or step in third base. disengage the runner if he does he must dropped his hand to his side in disengaging. The rubber the pitcher must step off with his pivot foot and not his free foot. I or else. It's Bach that so yes I think that what you're saying is what James is saying and do you think that the reason that this change appeals to him is because there's already a rule in the book and so it's easy to say. Well there is a rule so just enforce it or do you think of there was no such rule that we would have an entry for. Make a rule rule that you have to stay on the rubber. Yeah what you'd have to have that rule writer Asuka just deliver the pitch from wherever you wanted right you. You could say that you have to be on the rubber when you begin your when you make your move toward the plate. Yeah I guess so. I think that the fact that there's already a rule appeals to him. Yes But we could just as easily solve that by taking out the rule true yes ago. That wouldn't solve the problem. It wouldn't solve the problem but it's the question I'm trying to figure out whether this is like a a question of taking the rulebook more literally and it just bothers him that there's an uninformed rule or if this is simply one of his mother by the Effect Act. I think that the effect is to handicap pitchers in some way to to restrain while the intended effect to handicap pitchers. But what's happening is it captain hitters right and so we're trying to come up with a way to handicapped pitchers and keep them from throwing with full effort as they do these days and I would say that I don't have a problem problem with them throwing through full effort and if we just want to put a some sort of restriction on them that limits their ability to pitch well. I think that I would have others that I like more. Well I think I like this next one more. We've talked about this plenty but moved the mound back but James's suggestion is that you just move the mound back three inches. Because he says that any more than that would potentially be really disruptive he says there's been some talk of moving the bound back by two feet. Whoever suggested that has probably never played baseball and he says his reason for that is pitcher? Spent fifteen years learning to make a slider break at just the right moment so that it it breaks across the plate if you move them back two feet every breaking pitches horribly off target. And you can't just fix that spring training which not a pitcher so I don't they feel qualified to necessarily weigh in on this but does that sound right to you. I mean once he released the pitch. Aren't you just trying to get it to break. I mean you can't necessarily make it break such that it starts breaking or stops breaking at a certain time like once you release it you can't impart any force any spin on it anymore. So in many cases. Aren't you just trying to make it break as much as possible and obviously like you. You don't want it to be way out of the strike zone so you have to kind of calibrate where you're aiming and where it's GonNa break. But if he moved it back farther. Obviously it's going to mess with your control just inevitably probably because you're farther away but the calibrating the break so that it breaks at just the right time is something that I hadn't thought of at length. In general I agree with them. Like what. Start with just a small move back and see what happens. And he says if three inches doesn't do anything then we'll get back another three inches so I might say six inches just because it's already a six inch interval away which is just sorta strange so just make it a whole number but I I'm on board with the principle of the thing I think as you keep the mound where it is but move the plate back. Yeah okay. I'm fine with that too. All right put next one eleven if a starting pitcher is removed from the game before pitching five innings and before allowing four runs to score that pitcher is ineligible the pitch again for eight days. Wait a minute if he doesn't say it again if he is removed from the game before pitching five innings and before allowing four runs since he's ineligible pick for eight days. This is just simply coming up with like anti opener. Yeah okay so the rule is everybody has to be able to pitch deep in the Games and that has to be the default unless you get unless you get blown out. So we're not gonNA make you throw two hundred and seventy pitches trying to get Out of the fifth but you cannot as a strategy be expected only three innings right and his point is Basically he says in Bold Italic Alex Baseball should be played in the way that fans most liked to see it played and he agrees with things that we've talked about on this. podcast I've written about openers are are not as fun or or at least bullpen games or not as fun that I like the starting pitcher. It's nice to have that narrative protagonist. WHO's the game the whole time? And you're looking at the pitch counts you of the pitch count so he is saying that on the one hand it's nice to allow innovation and he says that he's generally against any rule that attempts to change baseball but I'm often in favor of rules that prevent changes to the game and this is a change that he doesn't doesn't like and he believes that most people don't like and so he says We don't actually have to let people do it so we have always followed the policy. He says that that if managers figure out a more effective way to do something and it changes the game we allow that change to take place and changes have in fact happened for one hundred fifty years. That's fine except when it isn't this is a case when it isn't and he says that it forces the sport to sell an annuity essentially because you just have interchangeable bullpen arms coming and going and not as much focus on the stars and players. You know it would be more of an issue in a future. World aware as pitchers aren't still used as more or less the way that they are. If if it got to the point where where even even Max Scherzer was only throwing three innings and they might come in the fifth inning or something Then I think that would be true but as it is now the pitchers that are only going for innings are not I. I don't feel like they're the pictures that you're paying hang to see any way In while it's truth there might be some aesthetic deficiency there That you've picked up on. He's picked up on. I don't think it's enough to merit stepping in and changing changing. How managers do this? I would come up with a better solution to this problem. A more organic to me solution less chase at least three vesting years options seeming solution and I think he already with the three three pitchers in a game. uh-huh yeah I struggle with the philosophically speaking because on the one hand it's an entertainment product and you should probably intervenes to make the product entertaining. If if it starts not to be on the other hand I really do value innovation and strategy and tactics and coming up with ways to sort of bend. The rules succeed within the rules but in a novel way and I think we generally agree on that I mean we briefly became obsessed with the strategy rate with removing pitcher mid at Bat to get an advantage and it's hard to argue that after the initial intrigue that generate that would actually be good for are the entertainment value of the game because if anything if it worked then it would just mean more strikeouts and overmatched hitters and more pitching changes and none of that would be fun and and yet. I am intrigued by the idea. Because no one's ever done it before an actually help and so those two desires are kind of worrying within me to encourage teams to try new things and find advantages and then to reward them if they do and yet now. We're at a point where you can argue that teams that have found. Those advantages are actually now making the game less entertaining. So I don't know where the balances there where you still allow innovation but it also hacked to make sure that baseball still fun for spectators because that is the more important thing. Yeah I just I don't think there are one hundred and fifty interesting starting pitchers in in the world and no that's true there's really only about I don't know somewhere between maybe eighteen and thirty five that you even notice really when you're when you're thinking about whether watch game and so I just don't feel like it's that big of a loss as it is now and I personally really like relievers to me really are a interesting part of how I consume the game and I like like multi inning relief since a lot too and so I personally do not see a huge need but I definitely allowed it within a few years could be more appealing to me. All right number twelve. He again is trying to focus on known players and stop the roster churn and there have been some some rules that have already been enacted to try to do this like increasing the amount of time that a player has to stay in the minors after. He's optioned so that you can't just constantly cycle through through people but his role suggestion limit each team to one roster move a week except that perhaps three times during the year a team can use a free roster move move. If you get two players actually hurt in the same game you can use your free move to deal with that. Otherwise you've got one move a week and let's say that you you can save your move for one week only so that if a team does not make any roster move in one week they can make to the next. Here's an idea. I think that you should everybody should be allowed to. I use the Carpool Lane once a month when they really need it whether they have anybody in their car with them or not and so. I think that the way that you do it so that you don't have basically people. I'm trying to get away with it every day until the one day when they're caught and then they go out. It's my one day you just when you need to use the carpooling. 'cause you're really late to pick somebody up and and you know this. Your work kept you there and like you kinda desperate and there's no other way around the traffic except this is you just call you. Call a number and you register. Are Your driver's license. And for the next say one hundred twenty minutes or so you have free access to the Carpool Lane. Whether you have anybody in it or not and I feel like there's uh it's great that the Carpool Lane incentivizes carpooling. And it's great that it gives a benefit to people who have multiple people in the car. There's sort of a way in which Mitch that in increases the greater happiness in the world. I like that but the people who really really really need it the most I feel like they deserve a lane once a month. You should clear it out. I mean people really need to get places sometimes. Yeah sure and just think what a blessing it would be to to once a month. No that you you can. Probably what would happen is like the last day of the month everybody had who had an unused carpooled day. Would all crowd the thing. Yeah yeah all right one roster move a week with a couple of extras thrown in there and you can save one. Yep So if you get a couple of people hurt. Your aren't powerless to do something about it. I think that I think we just after live with with churn with the roster turn. I think it's probably a bad idea to tell teams when player Kanner or should or shouldn't be in the majors and there's a fairness problem with player compensation. It's probably something that should be collectively bargained gained in probably best handled that way. If it's just about wanting to have a Like again the the players that would be affected by limiting roster. Churn are not the players that most fans are learning the names of anyway you know. We're we're already talking about the twenty eighth the player on the roster right and. I don't think that you're gonNA like all of a sudden have baseball players in Nike commercials. Because you've you've kept the teams from doing twenty twenty six man roster moves all right. Let's do two more number. Thirteen is limit throws to first base by pitchers. Now he says that his yes Ben. His actual preference is to eliminate the balk rule. And replace it with something better. Now I don't doesn't specify okay. Well I have a hard time arguing afraid but I don't think I think if you eliminated the bok move than you would actually have a much slower game because pitchers would be doing all sorts of complicated deception. That would take a long time. So I don't think you can remove the balk rule and things. But he wants to limit it to to to throws to first base per better. If you make a third unsuccessful throw than the base runner automatically advances. Yeah and you're basically limiting into one B Because the second one would be almost well I was gonna say almost an automatic stolen base except we all watched John Lester for the last few years but basically pitchers would not use their second one very often and so you would have essentially one to to throw over and I like that a lot. I think that's a fantastic one. I think that the tension of knowing that a pitcher was out of throws or maybe had one left and decide I feel like would add a nice element of of interest. It's already kind of interesting when you're watching that split screen to see whether the batter runner is going to go but when you throw in limits on pitch counts. I feel like any time based runner is on that can steal. It becomes a very very detailed chess match to watch. Yeah and this would theoretically may be increased space stealing a little bit. Which would be nice? Because it's kind of at a low ebb right now and I mean he talks about it as if this is a a huge problem like people throwing throwing over fifteen times or something which I don't think it is there. Aren't that many really clearing examples that I see where the game just totally stops because someone stowing Over and over again but it does happen. It happens from time to time and it should probably never happen. And she says that it's just an oversight that they I would have put a role in the books to prevent this if they had thought that it would be a problem. Thank you would have people throwing over that many times and that it just didn't happen urban and it makes sense because like even just to prevent the theoretical possibility of someone stopping the game entirely by throwing over indefinitely elite. Which obviously doesn't happen for societal reasons like you don't want to be the person who stopped the game and did that and everyone would hate you but but it still just to get rid of that? Loophole I guess that you could make a game infinite by throwing over forever you could also have it be that you get one Freebie and and then everyone after that is a ball because his now it is it is considered a throw that is not in the strike zone so it counts as a ball I think the other thing the beneficial thing of this is I think you're right that it would increase stolen bases a ton I think it would increase pickoffs. Paradoxically I think there'd be a lot more pickoffs for one reason because there'd be a lot more base dealing and we're another because you would have baserunners who thought well the pitchers out of throws or. Maybe he only has one left and he's not coming over here and they would be a little bit more aggressive and so yeah all right. Didn't Jeff didn't Jeff right in Article One time about. Yes it was Bruce Chen Chan there. You Go. That's one of my favorites. Yeah so good. How Avenue throws was that? That was a lot ten thousand dollars to it ten times and the last one for today this. This is In the same vein to prohibit the pitcher from thirty in the first base unless the runner off of I actually has at least a six foot lead is fi. You see it all the time. The pitcher just isn't quite ready to pitch so he throws the first even though. The runner has no lead and as no threat to steal. It's annoying another thing you could do would be to draw a little line. Six feet off. First base as long as the base runner keeps one foot on the first base side of that line. He's absolutely safe because the pitcher can't third a I if he doesn't cross that line again. It's almost invisible rule to the fans apart from the Little Hash mark because the pitcher would almost never throat I when he was not allowed to. And you never give a thought to what it doesn't happen. Are there many attempts where they're only six feet out. I mean I'm getting hung up on the number six here I could have written eight and then I would have argument but yeah yeah well I mean you do see just lazy throws over where you're not even trying to pick the guy off and it's just like reminding him that you were physically capable through over there so many. How many do you really see? We watch a lot of baseball and we see maybe like thirty a year in common but I I. I don't know how many of those the runner is actually within six feet of the bag because he might still be taking a decently it so well one problem with having any the number of feet unless you have that Hash mark that he suggests that will how. You're going to know that it's six feet in that moment. Not Five feet eleven inches or something so unless you have like that real time stat. Cast thing that's telling you how far the guy is off the base and that would be tough but you could put a little mark and just say well if he's not actually seemingly making an attempt to steal a base than why would you throw over so don't waste everyone's time yeah I would say hey that I don't need this role but it'd be fine. That'd be fine. It's fine I I think I think you're talking about twenty seconds like one every three like fourteen games yes probably and if you just put in the the limit on throwing over then that would take care of it by itself. Yeah all right. So the the last sixteen of the czar more offense oriented and more related to the strike outs and homers than pay play. So I think they're probably a little more compelling so we will get to that next time and whatever moves have happened than maybe some emails. We will see how the winter meetings proceed. All right. You know I'd be remiss in not mentioning on a day of a lot of good and exciting news for baseball another little tidbit that came out of the winter meetings. MLB and the MLB PA and Sony announced that they have extended their partnership to keep keep making the MLB the show video game franchise. They've been making for decades now was originally called. MLB debuted in nineteen ninety seven as the show. It's been sort of the the standard bearer for baseball video games for years and years now but it also has been exclusive to playstation platforms and according to this press release he historic expansion of the a long standing partnership will bring 'em show for the first time ever to additional console platforms beyond playstations platforms as early as twenty twenty one. So that's good news because xbox owners for instance at been without a baseball game or at least a good licensed baseball game for the whole of that console history so it sounds like when the new consuls come table to get the show on multiple platforms which is good news for baseball and for Gamers just passing that along for the team in the audience.

Good. Twelve for twenty two, hundred, forty, five yards, two touchdowns no picks and get this about Saquon Barkley eleven rushes rob negative three yards. That that Pittsburgh Defense, this is how good they were remember last year with not a quarterback to speak of, after Rothlisburger, went down a game two and they were eight. You know when they got meka Fitzpatrick. Obviously everything turned around for the defense and the team really and I think you know I'm not saying it's going to be what he was seven years ago. But I if he plays well and that's why I got them in the playoffs as a wildcard I don't think they can have a decent season. Yeah and the jets or giants I'm sorry. I. Already through a nice touchdown pass. and. Dairy SLAYTON and. He you know he's got decent numbers. One thing you see rob is you can't just go by yards. You know what? I mean at a quarterback and I know you know that We'd stat pad for it. But Matt Ryan Four hundred. Fifty ours yesterday and they really weren't in that game with Seattle. And so But yeah.

So I called Bernie tonight I want you to know I stayed away from this giants. Pittsburgh. Game did not bet it. I didn't like it. I think the giant I just didn't like the game and I picked tennis spray. What was Rob G right six and a half correct for the steelers. Yes. Yeah. Okay. All right around right now. So I'm like you know what I mean. I just didn't like it. I don't know what his game is going to go, but I did pick Tennessee minus three so we'll see. I let's get. Let's get into this rob. The big one of the big stories that offseason obviously the biggest one was Tom Brady going to Tampa Bay but this was a huge into that Green Bay knowing that they needed to add another a second receiver. To Davante Adams. They drafted Jordan and moved up to get. Jordan love the quarterback. In the first round of the draft. and that ticked Aaron. Rodgers off. And there are some thinking you know. I mean, even Erin city his days are numbered in Green Bay. He's a great. You know I've always said even though I've been critical of his performances in the NFC Taito Games. He's I mean everybody knows he's an all time great quarterback and I think rob always motivated you know just as a superstar player. But. I gotta believe he's got a little extra motivation and he went out and play at the lutely lights out in the opening game of the season threw four touchdowns threw for over three hundred yards. They smashed the Minnesota Vikings and that's a big win. You know a division your road. Three, hundred, sixty, four yards, Aaron I mean he was just fantastic. Do you do you agree with me? You think this lit a fire under him and he's like I'm GonNA show Y'all I'm gonNA show you date you know you don't need to be thinking about getting rid of me and look he's on what thirty seven that's young nowadays or thirty he's not right. That's not I mean you've got guys playing at forty three and forty one and you know so. I think this might be workout I don't see them get to the super, bowl but. He might have A. Fantastic season and they got a shot. Off just I think his demise was grossly. Overstated by some and that does not say that he was errol. No. Yeah. The last three or four years that the Podesta didn't say he was finished and that's where people were trying to paint a narrative that he was finished and that Jordan love would be there next year or something whatever it was and you know what? Now people are some people are saying that yeah. Yeah. I. I don't believe that whatever team he gets to go. I don't believe that they're gonNA move away from him after the year that he could put up I did pick them the MVP and he got off to a great start for touchdowns and he did he looked like Aaron Rodgers. Of Bowl they allow them to throw the football wasn't all right. I was surprised through as much as they did with their big at forty four times and Chris I. Don't know if he'd do forty four times last year I. Don't know unless they were behind big and he was just throwing every down but it wasn't that many times that he got opportunity and he was thirty to forty four he really really. Looked good. And if you're packers fan, you gotta say wait a minute. You know like. I know people count them out thinking they can't win thirteen games again I think that when the division I think they'll be able to make noise in the NFC but Aaron Rodgers is alive and well and. He looked he looked Chris better than good. It wasn't like Oh. Yeah he's okay. Now looked outstanding and what a start to a season elderly gives you confidence as you move forward. Now he looked great until your point he threw forty four or more passes in two games last year. Yeah. I know I just three once and fifty five enough. What else? Both Losses Chris? I'm just curious how they beat Detroit in the final regular season game twenty, three twenty and they lost the Philadelphia so. We won so. Clearly they knew battle with Detroit it looks like but. Yes so You know here's the thing and we'll see you know look I. Think. The packers. They were a bad match up with San Francisco Right. Or vice versa if you say that San Francisco was a bad match up for the packers if somebody else have been able to beat San Francisco the packers by a shot to get to the Super Bowl that team was just too physical for Green Bay and so you know obviously we saw San Francisco lose yesterday rob G has picked him not to make. The playoffs we do have to you. You know I wish I had really thought about it because we do see that happening quite a bit with the team that loses a super bowl. You know people talk about the Super Bowl hangover for the winter but the Rams Carolina when Cam took him, you know the next year they didn't make the plus it happens. Philadelphia. Happens what I wanted of course. Philadelphia. But. So. Yeah. But if San Francisco's not. Not In their way. In maybe they got a shot to do something, but if you're a packers fan. If it becomes an issue again yesterday it wasn't an issue there their lack of skill players around Davante Adams but if it becomes an issue rob, do you do you think they'll be regret? In either in the organization or certainly within the FAN base, and they'll be angry that they didn't go out and get a legitimate wide receiver in the draft was full of them. Well. Yeah I mean they'll have to take a look and see what happens but last night obviously yesterday certainly didn't look like he needed. Made everybody ready. He made everybody who was out there. Right? Made them better. So I think and Davante. Adams. Got His guy. So he needs he needed maybe another guy I would have been great. But off off to that without having that guy I think he probably even threw one touchdown to the undrafted wide receiver that never got this off season. So will you off to a good start? You can argue I mean granted if Rogers was gonna be the starter for the next three or four years, then you probably made a mistake with drafting love when you could have got receiver but it's never you know he sat three years, Brett Farve I know it was a different day and age you don't really see. Top. Flight or potentially top-flight quarterbacks do that. But you know you can sit love for a few years behind Rogers and he learns. E, comes in ready to go like Rogers was you know when when it's time to move on? All right anyway, eight, seven, seven, ninety, nine, on Fox, eighty, seven, seven, nine, nine, six, sixty, three, sixty, nine did Aaron Rodgers is week one performance proved at the packers made a mistake. By taking Jordan love in the first round of the draft your turn away in as we continue the conversation with you is the.

Did the packers make a mistake I mean air rogers looked like he was what? Twenty, six of thirty, six, yesterday four touchdowns three, hundred, sixty, four yards in a big win over Minnesota degree. They make a mistake by not giving him a another receiver to go along with Davante Adams. Let's kick it off with Felicia in. On the couple Fox sports radio. FELICIA. It's been a long. Shouldn't have left US I know. What happened? My God, why are you? Not all I D company I worked with the federal government. So this time of the year is the time of year we'll be happy to buckle down and get a lot of folks win a lot of contract award. Hiring. Okay. Good thank. You know. A business owner. That's great. Great. All, right. Where you at on this? I'm on this is that yes, I. Think they made a mistake. In fact in fact, if they don't reach the Super Bowl I'll rethink the head coaching position. Are. Damn. Bottle. Here's the thing. Let's say they do what they did. Last year thirteen in three lose in the conference championship how you going to rethink the head coaching. That right. That's equivalent to Dallas cowboys eight nate and don't be late. That's equivalent. That's not thirteen and three isn't equivalent eight. It would be hard to let go. Right in front office may be in the decision that they may. But I think 'cause he would be twenty, six, right six six and his first two years to average championship game by an I don't know I'm Felicia I. Don't know bet you look at all the coaches in the history of the NFL, twenty, six, thousand, six, hundred, be one of. Refers to. Years. Baffling. What about the Andre Massachusetts is on the couple of Fox sports radio up Andre. You, how are you doing? Thanks for taking my call packers absolutely made the right decision taking Jordan love in the first round point a is because it lit a fire up onto Aaron Rodgers and you like to stay for the time being undefeated. Let him get that message loud and clear point. This was a cl- draft last deep at wide receiver. There was plenty of good wide receivers, second third and fourth round as many. Many of the analysts said, they could still put pieces around him while doing what the pack. Apparently with four hundred, nine, hundred Qbr you know no interceptions, eight yards per completion. This offense met with four for all the questions about him coming from Tennessee. Now he's proven you know that he knows that not just have a balanced offense but explosive offense. He's he's look pretty good. I'll give him that. I agree with that. All Right Andre thank you appreciate the call. It looks good. Rob. So far. Yeah. Joseph, in Indiana, you're on the couple of Fox sports radio what's up Joseph. How you guys doing tonight Joe's some I know all these guys. Is We are from you man. I'm GonNa, say well, by the way I do wear my mask like you said, laptop much fresh on Tuesday when the point that out to you got I I got family whose high risk I have to good where masks may not just for yourself but for your family member and other people around you, I I do that I I'm always do it but I think I think the Patrick did not make me think of Aaron Rodgers is too fragile. He'd been injured. Many last five years you've had two major injuries plan rule out of two. Yeah when which which his his age. He takes a bad hit that's going to have repercussions on him later in life they may smart move. I. If he goes down during love takes over Jordan laprud accessible Aaron Rodgers can take a body with starring job. Of making a heck of a leap, isn't he? That's big lead by. Three hundred, sixty, four, yard game but hey, everybody's got your opinion exactly Robert in Tucson. You're on the odd couple of Fox sports radio. WHAT'S UP Robert? Hey you guys doing. Great well, preface all this I'm from Chicago originally, but my mother is from Green. Bay. So I grew up packer fan since I knew what football quite. So any rate. But now I'm out here in Tucson. So I couldn't even watch the the buckner game, but that's another story I got see. Kyle. Lowry do miracle but. Regional. VIBRATIONAL game. They'RE GONNA show that game you know the not gonNA show. They're GONNA show cardinals right Right exactly but anyway, I think they did do the right decision in drafting somebody for the future because I'm a huge Aaron Rodgers fan no matter what however they'll scanning. He'd had two big drops, but Erin still went to him and he made a big play near the end of the game in Lazard is pretty solid to he's number two. So I really don't think that they actually at the draft somebody else because these guys are developing. And they've got tight ends. So I think it was pointless. So you don't think. You think that he has enough of weapons and that's why they weren't so keen on getting. Could you could you remember now they drafted a guy who might sit for three of for three years and not. You know what I mean I understand the emergency part and having them Chris, but he might not be. To the football team for three years, right? Right. Right. We will continue this air rogers conversation with one of his former teammates NFL network analyst James Jones, Jones joins US next but I be sure to catch live additions of the odd couple with Chris Broussard and Rob Parker Weekdays at seven PM Eastern Four PM Pacific, on Fox sports radio, and the iheartradio APP talking about erectile dysfunction isn't easy.

He's a super bowl champion NFL network analyst former teammate of Air Rogers, and that's who we're going to start talking with him about James Jones. James. Welcome to the brother. Going, all seligman how you're doing. Great great to have you on the show and really a great day to do it as well after your your former teammate you former quarterback. Aaron. Rodgers. Has a tremendous maybe the best game by quarterback yesterday, and do you think look we know he's motivated our already but do you think that the way the draft went down with them taking Jordan love some people speculating that this may be could be his last year in Green Bay. All of that has lit a fire under him that could actually work out well for the packers. Oh. Absolutely. I mean I've been saying all along season man I've been around A-rod for a long time. I know what this game means them but not only that I know what type of competitor he every day in practice if it ain't perfect, it ain't right to him. You know what? I mean and that's just the type of guy that he is and then you bring in a guy and you draft the guy who basically saying okay man you'll time it's come and so and this dude, his replace you it absolutely lit a fire under them like okay. Let me show you all how bad. I am Y'all It. But I'm about to show you all a little bit more how bad I am yesterday. He went out there and man what surprised me is just how comfortable he wasn't a system and even when they started that came off man, they did a lot of different formations out of different things with him being comfortable in the system and coastal floor knowing what he likes and what he likes to call. Look out man local. Data that was something to watch no doubt about it. Let's go to another quarterback who made his debut in Tampa Tom Brady all the. Ballyhoo the off season about how many weapons he has, and Tampa is going to the Super Bowl and all that wasn't wasn't a great store for Tom Brady. What did you see? He had two interceptions had a fumble. You put up some points but struggled to. It was everything that I expected to be honest with you of everything that I expected when I jumped out there with breath fall process it was all good we knew. They connect on around here. We don't own it when I got in the game a-rod back great practice to megawatt here. Don't that go on there you talk about it but when you get in the game and the bullets start flying and these. And our actor ankles to run your route. A third type way I knew that chemistry was going to be issued for Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay buccaneers Purley that's why everybody's been asking me housing team look. Awesome Opinion early. But now he's talking about after week four. Don't ask me because I feel like. Have the same. We're only they don't be on the same page go over for everybody. But early in the season I knew they were going to have the thing. They had the misdemeanor cases seeing the play to Mike Evans aware he's sitting down in the whole Tom Brady's throwing the scene out. Those are the type place that you gotTa talk about the day on Monday I feel study you know but that's what you did not get any practice. You know so I knew they were going to have those bumps in a row so I'm not surprised. So when you say is going to be over for everybody, how far do you have Tampa? Bay going. Over for everybody have a obeys on your on your schedule after we four, you'd better buckle up because they they going to be clicking but for me. Crave your one. Yeah. Yeah Year One, I'm not crowning to the Super Bowl things like that but I'm just saying if they only get. Better, buckle up because they're going to be able to beat anybody in the national football league. James I'm GonNa go I'm going the opposite way. I think Tom Brady doesn't get better at forty three gets worse and I have them not making the playoffs so I Can't wait to have you on later on. A Super Bowl, and let me ask you this. Did what did you did you pick Cleveland. To make. The. Plows last year. Yes. I picked Cleveland to make the playoffs last year. I did man. Okay I want to ask you James and obviously you know this position as well as anybody receiver I'm watching yesterday's Cleveland game and I'm just You know I oh Bj and he's just not a factor is is that More Baker. Mayfield, who we know is struggling or do you see something going on with ob j. he got in targets. The only had three receptions, twenty, two yards where do you think a I feel like it's only one game but I just feel like we may not see him be able to unleash his great talent like he did early on with the giants is this more Baker Mayfield issue or do you see stuff going on with that will be J. A little I think it's a little bit of both you know and and if not helping both of them that ob Jacobs traded over there and you have to brand new coordinators ever see. So I'm not ready to say, Oh, Shu. Both of them you know don't have a terrible year and things like that, but it's GonNa take some time for them. But I I was watching the game yesterday I'm watching it. They someplace where I'm like. The place where he has to come to obey Jay on you see obgyn man to man somebody's playing man to man on ob J. I don't care who it is. The ball has to go there on that route before you even look anywhere else you know what I'm saying so for me like that's all Baker but then again, I like this on Oh Bj too because he has not earned bakers trust yet I don't think. So because if Eli Manning thing Odell Beckham and man, he ain't with the nowhere else you know what I mean if Roger Davante Adams on looking nowhere. Drew brees Michael Tom Thomas One on one. He's not looking nowhere else. We could care less what play. This. With the ball you WANNA, match up in Seattle my best do so I just feel like him in Baker Mayfield gotta get the camera suit together a backup pass to earn his trust, and then once they do that and I think I think they'll be able to take off but they got earn each other Strauss change. What do you think what do you think of the cowboys again they lose to a good team they've struggled the last couple of years with beating playoff teams or teams that finish over five hundred jack had sixty one yards in the second half of the offense stalled. What do you make some people picking the cowboys go to the Super Bowl I just wasn't that impressed by their offense yesterday. I always tell people that. Early, in the season's defense is always start off faster than Austin still that's going to happen. You ran into the rams defense who defense align very good. You Got Ninety nine in the middle you got jalen Ramsey on the back end that could cover. So I knew they would make it hard on especially early. You know what I mean because defenses start off way faster than often offices I've Auburndale until I really figure out. Their identity and I know everybody's saying they got Zeke in the backfield. That's their identity run the football. Yeah. But we don't know how all l'aigle mission. We don't know how to game we'll play could as long they can't run the ball and things like that. So I knew that it'll be tough on them against the rams just because they were going up against a good defense and I no offense to start off slow. All right that's James Jones. Super Bowl. Champion wide receiver thank you for joining us. James We. Appreciate it man. Thank you. Bye problem anytime. Man is more Deok couple coming your way Fox Sports Radio Fox sports radio has the best sportstalk lineup in the nation catch all of our shows at Fox sports radio DOT. com, and within the iheartradio at search F. S. are to listen live. Right. It's the Chris Broussard and Rob Cracker Parker wrapping up another three hours and rob of course Monday night football tonight. I gotta be honest. I'm. Not. Are you gung Ho about the doubleheaders. It's all. Week right? Yeah. Just is it is this the only if it seems like they've done, they do it a few times a year definitely the first Monday night to give you a west coast game in the East, coast game. I I first Monday is fine. But this tough regularly you know if I, have A. Ton Of all was yesterday. Yeah. Yeah and so it's tough but still look good I mean twenty, six ten is you said nobody expects much from the giants. That's the only problem with these games and I'm not Pooh poohing them beating them and they got a sixteen point lead and. They will cover and do everything that people hope but I just you know last year you remember we watched some of these bad teams and people. Jumped on him and put up a lot of points and started three zero. You know what I mean and then Start playing good. I'm just Chris I'm just saying. And you know I'm right. Three. He's talking about but the cowboys started three and look I know that's what I'm saying that's didn't name talking tonight looking beatable well. We knew they had three bad teams come out and and they beat him up like they should have. Yeah. But Ben Looks. Good I just think rob and and it's interesting because. Before last year he was he caught flak I think he was underrated as a coach Mike Tomlin and then when he Worked miracles just to get that team to eight and eight last year. and. Then when you saw what happened with Antonio Brown when he left the The the you know where he left Mike Tomlin and nobody else can even get him to. act like a normal player you know and and survive on your team. I think the respect for Mike Tomlin went up and I admit, right? He did a good job last year. I. I know they didn't make the playoffs they would've actually made it I believe had the new with seven teams in each conference last year but. To, get that team eight nine I just it might not be pretty. They. Won't be the sexy team. Obviously, they're not gonNA, win the Division with Baltimore there but I think the steelers could have a nice little year and get into the playoffs I'm not. I'M NOT SAYING THEY'RE GONNA win the AFC. I don't think they can do that at all. Guys that they? I mean, let's just be honest right Yeah I'm not as high on the steelers are not got a defense I'm just not I. Don't know about Big Ben long-term he's older. We'll see Chris against some of the better teams but off to a good start. So I'm sure steeler fans are happy. But I'm not there I didn't pick them to make the playoffs in. AFC. So we'll see I didn't pick the last year either who were your wildcards do you remember i? Don't even remember to look at the list you know I can't remember what I know. The jets were in there. No jets were division with right I have Bob, the Patriots. How? You. Have guys if you want him yes. Go ahead. So Rob Wildcard picks were the Patriots, the Texans and the Titans In the AFC I liked those I mean. My were building Texans steelers. Yeah Okay Okay. You Act in the end the jets winning division I. Know It's one game. You you discourage it all about those you know those two teams or now mean battle losses you know what? I mean they're not gonNA go undefeated. So I I never look at it that way I'm always realistic about you know you're GONNA lose games. You're never gonNA like Chris how you lose you. Know what I mean. You can get blown out loser close games might kick a field goal. It doesn't matter you. You still knock on feel good about it but they're they're gonNA lose some games. So we'll see latinity once they're on. Yeah. I didn't think they looked that bad. Yeah I I thought they look bad and either I'm not GONNA make a turn out of one game. But I'll tell you what gays better get his act together. Well, that's what. I got is that this is his this might be it and I don't know if there's another job you know what that means. So he's gotTa know writing around because obviously he failed in Miami. And if he fails here, he's probably done as a head coach. So he get him going but with the giants I like Danny dimes. But. This is not a good start again, one game but saquon Barkley fifteen carries six yards. Fifteen carries six yards and it's on Danny dimes partially to open it up for him. But he startled to picks why and if you're. Wondering Red Zone. and. If they know that quarterback can't do it you know what I mean gotTa lutely put all those guys in the box and one abandoned and you didn't stall Yup absolutely. So what you got your titans coming up. Tighten minus tonight's three I'M GONNA take that game. So. You you take in their favor by three. Yeah. They're favored by asking you pretty good on that one. If they get off where we last left off I, mean I I just figured that that. That's a safe bet I didn't I didn't have a fuel for this game Chris I thought Pittsburgh will win but I wasn't what was it eight and a half six and a half six and a half yeah. But but you know what? I wouldn't by sixteen in. New York or in. Jersey. Saying. So I just didn't know you know riot. It's tough. That's a tough one. I mean I said I thought they win I would have had I been hesitant over six and a half but giants are marching we'll see if they can put punch it in. I feel with the Titans I'm concerned about Tanta Hill. I mean obviously had a good year last year. They didn't use using much in the plows as far as throwing the ball. But I, I wonder if he's going to turn into that pumpkin again. and. That's my concern with the ties I think Derrick. Henry Allenova will do what he did last year over the second half of the season but he was he was that was like watching old school running backs. You use the seed that do air dickerson, Earl Campbell, workhorses, you know what? I'm saying. Emmett Smith obviously, guys would get it twenty five times a game every week, and that's what they're can reminded me of an and I I, think You, know that's a that's A. That's a tough team. We'll see if they can keep up what they did but I, I just got questions about Tannehill. Yeah I mean the big thing is Kenny duplicate. You know that's always a thing you can have a good year. he's had a lot of so-so year, right? Right. So you don't know you're going to revert back and. To have to do with the the the unbelievable running by Derrick Henry you know what? I mean at open it up for him. What if they focus in on Derek this I don't know. I'm just not convinced. Now I hear you I hear you. Score more than three points. In Denver and I'm happy where you got them in the play offs so you must believe not. Only because I like Derek Him. When you move the ball, did this the other thing they've defense can hold up and he runs like he did last year they shot you got a good shot could've stand. Kill you, man. He's going over. Yeah. That's that's all you need. Having a running game like that changes a lot because then you're. asking. Your quarterback to make forty five throws. He didn't have to make forty five throws right? Right. Right. Right. All right. It is the I couples starting off another week. We got big.

There was something about therapeutic about going shopping. But i do understand. Ended is also a funky. Flashback friday martin coming up later on in this hour. Lamar mitchell from the mgm grand racing. Sports book He's the director there. We'll talk with him. We'll have our pigskin. Pickoff will make his own picks. I'll do my picks that's coming up in about forty five minutes so we'll do that much more polestar with martin. Turn back the clock day tomorrow. As mike tyson and roy jones junior gen in the ring for a fight for the ages and the age is probably the better word to say. And you know some reporters. They had the press online press conference last month and People were asking this an exhibition and Mike tyson was not that happy that that was asked and said quote. twelve clubs. No headgear really. This is an exhibition. Come on bro. be real and a tyson said that. Yeah this is a real fight. He came back to fight. And that's why he's doing this and it somehow some way forty nine ninety five. It's tomorrow night. Tyson is fifty four years old. Hasn't fought since Two thousand five when he lost and the corner had to stop the fight and he hasn't had a win in the ring since two thousand three almost as long as morton hasn't had a date where his day didn't need an approval cold before they went out. That's my impression because that was a that was pretty bad. Hold on roy. Jones is fifty one years old and he hasn't fought since twenty eighteen. So before we get there more than i get your take. I'm going to say this to everyone listening out there. I implore you do not spend forty nine hundred ninety five on this farce on this. Fight a so-called fight is just a highway robbery. it's a con job. Do not fall for do not. Don't let your curiosity get the best to you. Please take that forty nine nine thousand five. Donate it to the boys and girls club locally sending that money in the cancer research. How about the united negro college fund do not waste your money to see some fifty year old guys get in the ring way past their prime satisfies some warped each to be back in the limelight and to make a money grab. They should wear ski mask when they walk into. The ring causes a heist. I'm telling you you'd be better off taking your forty nine ninety five and we used to say this in detroit. All the time on a rip-off you'd be better off going up to the top of the scott building to all this building in detroit and throw a net forty nine ninety five over the side. Don't fall for dope buy it. you'll be crazy building. Lord have mercy. I'll say this. I mean i think there's gonna be a real fight in the idea that there's really going to be two guys really going to be standing there. Be trying to other in the face but like what does he. So i guess i guess that's my question for the report to tyson like. Yeah it's going to be a real fight but it's not gonna mean anything like it's going to be like if i got up right now and i went and back there and i thought leads a real fight but nobody's going to pay fourteen ninety nine or forty ninety nine or forty nine thousand nine to wash that. It's not going to happen is because there's there's no draw right like tyson for. I know i'm thirty one years old. Okay i my memories of mike. Tyson are from the hangover. And my memory of roy. Jones is from the track that he dropped in two thousand and seven right like. I don't really have memories of these guys boxers. It's like it's not. It'd be one thing if you were talking about like like it's not quite mayweather mcgregor because at least dow a farce to but mcgregor at least has a history of fighting people on tv for money. Even if it's not boxing. Right mcgruther is a fighter. But this is i mean. I'll say this though if you are super into this like i'm not going to tell another man how to spend his money. But this is just like the the quarantine instagram live versus. Going into real life guys. Who were done this. We're not really watching this for boxing. Watches to see what's going to happen now. I get the trade work but it's a money grab are you kidding me. The staple center nine pm eastern. They're going to have a couple other fights and somehow the california state athletic commission sanctioned about but of course it has with some with several rules and pointed out that the fight will will go eight. Two minute rounds. The fight will stop. If there's a cut and there are no knockdowns mean it's like like earlier today on the mets charles. Barkley steph curry really. Went out and play golf. They really kept score. It was really on tv. It was on free. Tv wasn't forty. Nine hundred ninety five morton wire people so gullible. I get the the train wreck. Is that what you want to see. You're to because there's nothing else on or your board. You just give up fifty dollars to see what to be disappointed. Because i don't. I don't understand how anybody could be interested in this. Let me tell you how uninterested. I am not only would. I not spend forty nine ninety five on this. I wouldn't watch it if they showed me to reap the replay over for free or watch highlights of it. I have no interest in seeing guys who can get a discount at the howard johnson. Climb into a ring to fleece people of fifty dollars. This is what this is martin. This is nothing else. I'll tell you. Would people have been fleeced for much more over much worse out if you want. I'll tell you this. Listen you're right if you go in figures. You're about to watch roy jones junior. Mike tyson have actual boxing match. You pay fifty dollars digging into a fight. Well i'll tell you this. I got an absolute for you in manhattan as you could buy or the phrase is like you're a sucker that's all that is your absolute sucker now going in and watching this. If i were to be the type of person that was going to spend fifty dollars on this. I'd be going for the show. The same way i spent fifty dollars for a broadway show are spent twenty fifty dollars back when the movie theater was opened. The you wanna go see a movie. You gotta take them. You want to take nice lady to the movies. It's gonna cost you like fifty sixty bucks to get in the door with two popcorns and your drinks. It's for this show stop for the actual movies for what's happening around it and the environment and the so like i. I'm not going to begrudge anybody for wanting to spend the money on it. But i wouldn't but if you're going to hear thinking that you're really gonna see people fight like an actual like like if you're going like i when i watched mayweather mayweather mcgregor. I expected to see a technical boxing match. I expect out of that of tyson and jones junior high. Just expect them to be too all guys swinging and each other. But i don't. I don't understand if this was on free tv and you wanted to pop it on five forty nine ninety five. Just what i mean mike. Tyson has a fourth since two thousand five fifteen years when he when he quit that time when it was all over he said he was one good enough to fight or or shouldn't be in the ring that he he didn't have it anymore and fifteen years later. Now what we're supposed to watch you fight and and put up forty nine nine thousand five during a pandemic what people out of work seriously. I don't know who's out of work for tyson. Jaws david fighting for twenty five fifteen year. Twenty fifteen twenty years. You have a better chance taking that. Forty nine thousand five going. Get rob dot com really is about get you someone that you wear. If you use the discount code r. o. b. rob to get twenty percents off your purchase for black friday. That's where forty nine ninety five and you can get yourself something that you can wear. You can wash. you can hold onto a gift. I can't believe that you guys let this happen. I'm only here. i'm only here every so often. You guys let it ride. Parker get off an eleven minute live. Read forget rob dot com colors. We do lord versi the topic here. Tyson roy june's verse parker. I missed the third line. I'm telling you a great sell. It makes no sense to waste your money. I just the train wreck thing and this is how people get rich in this country. They put up these fraudulent things. Like people get curious about it. Dip in so many bad fights that people have paid for. Forget about this and this is not even a real fight this is with old geezers fighting this could easily be over in a round or two or or look ridiculous or slow and you go. What did i just do what i just gave up. Forty nine ninety five and then when you put your foot through television you gotta go to best buy and buy a new set. Because you feel like you've got ripped off you got rob you got bamboozle so you can actually go to get robbed dot com. Get no but see it all seriousness. Lie i don't. I don't necessarily have a big problem with them. Trying to pay a premium for especially if the audience is there if people are buying it. It's one thing if it's one thing if you charge and five hundred dollars for a pair shoes only one hundred pair lavar ball right. It's another thing entirely if you're selling a seventy five dollars shoes and you can't in all of them are sold out right. If there's if there's people clamoring all over themselves to catch this to catch this then i don't have any problem with you. Sell it for charging for. That's the whole point. It gets rich. That's what america's about scarcity supply and demand charging people. What was the other thing. P.t barnum as a sucker born every minute and if you are ordered this fight. I i would classify you and that just cannot understand how anybody of their right sal. Mine and body would invest in. Give up forty nine ninety five on their own free will unless there was a gun in your back or something and you were forced to turn over your credit card. I i want to hear from you. If you're buying this fight call in and tell us why eight seven seven nine thousand nine on fox. And if you're not what would you have to do to justify that fifty dollars. Eight seven seven nine nine six sixty three sixty nine and if you really wanna give rob go to give rob dot com and get twenty. Percents off with the code in the love minute. Live their arquebuses.

That's all i think. There are better things and this is the train. The train wreck of america. We love these things. We just give people money i just. That's why they keep coming up with it. That's why they keep selling this to people because people are willing to go. Oh yeah whatever. Get the credit card. I'll put forty nine ninety five whatever and then at the end.

We have less of a crowd i want. I mean. I'm willing to pay fifty bucks to see if tyson just goes nuts on this dude and then find out later that if i didn't i would've paid two hundred.

One of my favorite people hope you had a great thanksgiving lamar you in the family. Too much food too much food. Thank you so much me. No doubt and martin weiss in today for chris who of course has always taken off on the holidays. But that's another story real quick before we get into some football this tie up people by betting on this tyson. Jones fighting trump. You know everyone is asking about the fight but we are putting up at an exhibition. Fight with you know these guys Phil but yeah. Everyone's ask me. Hey you got with that fight. Put that fight up. We're not putting the fight up but yeah it's unbelievable. They're so much interest in this fight. It's amazing. I let let me ask you on thanksgiving day. What does that say. Though the thanksgiving day game say more about washington's upside or the cowboys we saw that game. How did people make out on that. And that terrible call by the by the cowboys with the fake punt. How how did that affecting We seen cowboys act like this are are. We see the cowboys Play this way all year. So you know the money We opened the cowboys are small favorite and everybody bet the redskins so The crowd actually One yesterday with that With that terrible display of a fake fake Fake that the little kindergarteners try to run. Lot just awful. I mean one of the worst now now. I had a question because at the time it a fake punt the washing score twenty one points in the fourth quarter that make it go over like that game was under for at least the first three quarters. Right yeah it was and Yeah twenty one points definitely put the total over the total yesterday forty six. I mean 'cause it was twenty to thirteen or twenty two sixteen Right around that fourth quarter and then washington exploded with the he brilliant playcalling of the cowboys and Their defensive just broke lamar. I'll tell you my my My texans and washington football team parlay felt like it was stealing money on wednesday afternoon. When i put it in and sure i don't on thursday so you guys but you guys how so. How did the action go in the houston in detroit game because one on thanksgiving and forever they were. They were giving three points. But the texans aren't great either. So i'm just curious like you said that You know everybody was on the football team for the late game. How how did the early game go. Everybody was on the texans for the first game We had a better balance action in that first game but feel you're right the the lying if that one. What seems like any last century on thanksgiving but We ticket to way action and there but most of the. That's were coming down. The texans laying the points pledged on the parlays sas you about some of the games coming up this weekend. How about this. This patrick mahomes. Tom brady matchup. What kind of action. Or are you getting on this as everybody heavy on kansas city or not i think tampa bay could upset cover. They offer their off the brady train. The they offer brady trade It's about ten to one money on the chiefs. And it's about three to one tickets on the chiefs But this is really good for the bucks. I mean because really everyone and their mother is on kansas city I'm going to give out the brady the brady bus this weekend because like i say everyone. Every joe is on the cheese money on tickets empire legs and bedding the total over like crazy too. So speaking of Speaking of tom brady his former team. The new england patriots. That line opened with against arizona cardinals. It opened at minus two and a half. And if anybody listen to the a couple of hours. High on the cardinal start. The love kyla murray. There's no that that line. I think it was two and a half arizona and it's just going down closer to a pickle. I like the cardinals. Am i wrong for liking the cardinals. I don't see how new england's day something here right. I don't see how they can keep up with with the with the offense to speed of cuyler in the running backs. Yeah as long as schuyler islam cuyler healthy can play You're right that's the right side and that number Money we're about sixty one heavy on the cardinals before the number went down and about ticket tickets about four to one More cardinal bats than patriots But yeah i mean we know. He's banged up a little bit. So that's what they're looking. I that number right there. I got one more form. Real quick my another guy. I was in love with pj walker and the carolina panthers. I don't know. If i think peter walker going to go bridgewater was i think it was scratched again for sunday. They're given four to the vikings. The vikings loss to the cowboys right and the cowboys are just a heads. Better than the jets right. Like i feel like the panthers should run away here right On that game believe it or not take account on that game. It's even so the public is on both sides. Even elite money is just a little bit more money on the vikings Like three to one or three to Just like one and a half to one on the vikings. But you're right. I mean the vikings can can they really play as poorly as they did last week vs dallas and can pj walkerton. He back it up two weeks in a row. We'll see but really. I mean it's it's easily that game so far last thing. Three seconds laugh bears at the packers mitch. Trubisky's back in at quarterback packers miles nine and a half to sounds like a lot of point. We know the packers have an offense. They can score points Couple of weeks ago to struggle with the jaguars at a big you know they.

Talk show in the country with my guys. Crisper start rob parker. We had to bring in the marne wise to fill in for christopher sar. Sometimes it's good to get somebody who disagrees with robin doesn't always agree with them. You know so oh yeah. This is the wrong scrape. My my them say right so so wrong. I hate to do this to you buddy. I know you're fire hot in vegas with your picks you're making more money than anybody else can even imagine right now but for pigskin pickoffs rob when we look back before we go forward you had another one in four again my man now the bad we know what's going on it's been it's been rough listening to me that's the problem should be my better i mean i'm just saying i would say that it looks like robson me looking back on i know if you're just trying to go against chris's picks but i think you need to follow your heart here my man gets you back in the running so we don't hear chris want the bongos every five picks already know it i let's have some fun guys let's have a rallying cry here for you rob so now martin we'll go back and forth with you guys get your picture so the first one of the night. We have chargers at bell's bills are four and a half point favorites. Rob who do you like here. I'm taking the bills. A given the four and a half points at home against the chargers nine gave me the chargers. The bills can't run the ball and justin. Herbert is the best quarterback out of both of those classes. Josh allen in his. Wow i gotta take anaheim attack. I like that okay. So let's go guys now to giants at the bay malls. Giants are actually six point favorites. Here martin who do you like. Give me danny dimes in the future. Nfc east champion new york giants. I'm going to take the bengals to covered. It won't win the game. The giants finally have like a big game to prove that. They're something when they were playing for anything. And i'm going to say that wet the bed. They win but not as big as people think. So i'm going to take bengals plus six and a half. Wow okay rob. I see china comeback here with a rally. Cry fox sports radio. It is the pigskin pickoff with chris. Broussard rob parker martin weiss. Won't you be my better. Sin in for chris bussard today now guys. Let's go over to the cardinals at the patriots. We all know who we Martin weiss likes here. I'm guessing but cardinals are one and a half point favorites robbie like i'm gonna take the cardinals. I think they need to win. Joins on it. You know. I'm not been driving. But i think they need to win and i just don't buy to the patriots. I know it's in new england the game but i'm gonna take the cardinals in this. Gimme cuyler the collar. Mvp campaign continues. Maybe mahomes twist an ankle and we still got a shot. One vessel joins on. Oh looks like trying to jump on the train here with the to all right. Let's go over to probably another one of the oldest quarterbacks in the league but sally's not playing we got saints. At the broncos hear saints are five and a half point favorites martin. Who do you like. no you're right. One of the oldest quarterbacks is playing thirty something years old and he's really a tight end. Give the broncos plus five and a half to senegal and everything. They got building playing tied in quarterback. I'm going to take the saints saints. Only because their defense has been off the charts. It doesn't matter who. The quarterback is allowing an average of eight points. A game in their last three they get at the quarterback the defense continues to play. Well all they need is for hill not to turn the ball over which he won't do because he's not throwing it that much so i'm gonna take the saints. Wow okay rom. I'm actually surprised that pigskin pickoff the couple fox sports radio christopher saad rob parker martin weiss in today now guys. Let's go to sunday night football here where we got the go. Pack go rob parker's favorite team of all time. It almost seems like we got the bears at packers. Packers are nine and a half point favorites. Rob you got. I'm gonna take the pack as you just heard them ought to from the mgm. Grand and i you know. It looks like you want to take the bears but offensively they're challenged mitch trubisky's coming in. Who knows what if they're going to be in sync where they are. The bears just have trouble score. No matter who's been the quarterback so i'm gonna take the packers to win and it might be just by ten points not a blow out a huge blow to division rival. Ten point game is a blow out in the nfl. All the talk about twenty one points or someone who's just told me against the saints. It doesn't matter who the quarterback is. It doesn't matter who the quarterback is chicago. That offense is inept regardless. But i'll tell you what sneakily the packers defense gave up a ton of voice of the jaguars and they have not looked great. The last few weeks. Philip rivers threw a party last sunday. The bears are going to cover this game. They're not going to win. But there's no way they lose this game by nine and a half. Wow how about that for your picks and that's our skin picked off. Hopefully rob parker comes back up. I'm telling you right here when i go by vigneault day. Alex remember this. Got them written down. Remember this call me next friday. Hobby say that home ready as he got these health. We definitely will need any help. Last good enough. We'll see i martin weiss. We'll see how you do. I'm not so sure about some of these picks but there it is anyway more on. Thanks man we appreciate you filling in for chris. We had some fun today. There was a great time. Thank you thank. you think. he's got shapiro. Thank you chris bruce art thank you. Dj thank you. Le- let's get it. I appreciate it. I and you guys have a great weekend.

We didn't know what would happen in last night's game but in the sixth inning Joe Kelley on the mound Alex Bregman came to the plate and he was followed thereafter by Korea this is what it sounded like on the dodgers. Television. Joe Davis and Orel Hershiser. Kelly. Own Three. Oh. Get away from him. I think that would slip. Wasn't vibe all the way here to dodger stadium in our booth that I've felt like this would be an interesting game and I didn't know if it would turn into fireworks but that could have been the first salvo be at first and make sure he's over at first when you go on that one on, C. Goes to second one seger back to I not in time settle for one. That's why Joe's look. He slightly missed the base and then he gets spiked a little bit and that's why he glanced back at Brantley Berea to for to tonight. Book Out I was. Off Speed pitch that spills him. Rare out looking out there. Do not apologize. Let the fear. Let the. Mystery of what was that about? Let that linger in the hitters is comes. That's just what he did and he got a swing and a miss from Korea to get out of the inning. Joe Joe Kelley. STRUT is way off. After an Interesting. Any. Rides to the benches have cleared. And we'll do our best to maintain social distancing wall still sending a message Paul sites. I kinda just want to sit here listen since you can. You're just. This isn't going to go away for a while. Yeah three Oh pitched Alex Bregman, a fastball behind his head jawing back and forth between Carlos Correa Joe, Kelley the Astros, the dodgers, the bench clearer and this is dusty. Baker after the game furious about Joe Kelley said and did. Real fastball over head. Now you're. Is Beginning, his career. A couple of guys balls close. and. Then you know what? Really and raise their bodies when You took Carlos on the stroke him out. And he told a nice. See. What To do it then. But upset me the empires. Or Indus-. Wants you warned him you. He's the one on the ball. You know he's the one. Started this this the first. So. I didn't get along. Joe Kelley Talk to reporters he didn't really say anything of Note, sort of took the classic pitchers tactic of Well, you just got away Dave Roberts was asked about whether or not. He thought Joe Kelley was throwing Bregman end or Carlos Correa and his answers was I really don't know to be quite honest. The Angels Albert Pools is moving closer to passing Willie mays on the all time home run list. There's Albert last night. Here's the two strike pitch on Aberdeen Swings and lifts a high fly ball that's carrying deep out in left field and it is Outta here Albert connects. His first home run and first RBI of the season and the angels add on it's now sixty two. Now it was career homer number six, fifty, seven, Willie mays. Of course, it's six, hundred and sixty, the padres. Our team were all watching early in the year and Fernando Totti's June. Your went to a place that you almost never see right handed hitters go to in San. Francisco. Here's the three one Fernando hits the air the other way towards the right field corner long run. Davis. Going back looking up and this one is gone another three run homer. This one belongs to Fernando Totti's junior he's dinger of the season and padres jump in front three to one here in the third. That from the padres radio network, the injuries continue to mount around baseball Saint Louis Cardinals, writing righthander miles Mike lists will have season ending surgery to repair a tendon in his strained right forearm this of course, creating an opening in their rotation nats manager Dave. Martinez told reporters yesterday that wants Soto is now received the required back to back negative test required for Major League. Baseball's approved labs. Of course, he missed just before the first game of the. season, he was scratched from their lineup and has been out ever since the Astros announced, they picked up their two thousand twenty one club option on manager Dusty Baker, as well as pitching coach, Brent Strom and third base coach Gary Pettis the Astros are and also nearing a deal with veteran right-hander Fernando Rodney they have been hammered by injuries to guys like Justin verlander the mets agreed to a deal with catcher Bruce Maxwell, isn't playing in the majors since. Two thousand eighteen with the Oakland athletics, he was the first Major League player to kneel during the national anthem protests social injustice that was in two, thousand and seventeen. The angels announced that they play shortstop. Angel. Timmons on the ten day injured list with a left ankle sprain and Kansas. City royals announced that Star quarterback Patrick Mahomes the Kansas City chiefs has become a member of the royals ownership group the quote from John Sherman the principal owner, the royals. He loves football, but he also grew up loving the game of baseball. We look forward to many years of a winning partnership Mahomes, of course, the son of former major leaguer pat mahomes who pitched in more than three hundred big league games mostly as a reliever, and of course, we have the Marlin situation according to ESPN and the athletic four more players on the marlins tested positive in their traveling party that brings the total up to seventeen at least. We. Don't know for sure if those four new ones are either players or coaches or staff. Major League baseball announcing Miami's next six games starting with last night's game have been postponed their scheduled to play next Tuesday at home against the Philadelphia Phillies. In this ever changing schedule of two thousand twenty, the Yankees will play the orioles in Camden yards today and tomorrow after their game against the phillies. Last night was canceled Dr Anthony Fauci was on. Good. Morning America talking about what's going on in baseball with George Stephanopoulos. Let's talk about sports. You've seen that outbreak in the Miami Marlins can the baseball season continue? You know I don't know I. Hope. So George because I know that Major League baseball the players the owners the managers have put a lot of effort into getting together and putting protocols that we feel would work. It's very unfortunate what happened with the Miami Dolphins it's just first of all I'm concerned I. Hope to play is all right I heard about a dozen of them have gotten infected even though they're young vigorous and very healthy I. Hope they're okay but you just have to watch this. This could put it in danger I. Don't believe they need to stop, but we just need to follow this and see what happens with other teams on a day by day basis. Now. We're going to be talking with Carl ravaged coming up about the Marlin situation about what's happening Major League baseball in the coronavirus and about what happened in Houston last night with the Astros and the dodgers before we do that though of course, baseball is back the NBA returns later this week, and then this weekend, we've got golf's first major of the season and guess what you can get exclusive coverage of the PJ championship, August six or ninth on.

Raby train going next 'cause you're all over the place. Right now, the rabbits rain is getting gasoline and then he's going to find a golf courses places golf once we are done with this, but there's a lot to get into baseball. There's a good day I'm looking forward to the today. I know there is a lot especially after what happened in Houston last night. And you know you got asked I got ask what's going to happen when the Astros face one of their their rivals or when they face the dodgers and I always thought coral that it basically in so many instances comes down to the personality the pitcher on the mound I checked the starting pitchers. Checked starting pitchers going into the series. Okay. Walker BUEHLER'S GONNA go You know he was a starter last night he was on the team in two thousand Seventeen Walker. Buehler's a good teammate. So whatever the Bible teammates, that's probably what he would. Follow You know he went through his time there wasn't really anything and then Joe Kelly comes out. I'm like Okay Joe Kelley we'll do anything. And I say this I, say this with. Great appreciation he's kind of crazy. And so I I felt like what happened last night my guess is is that he didn't go out to the mound thinking that he was gonna take care of business. He was struggling with this command. He's sprained the ball all over the place he got three. You know on Alex Bregman and then the light switch on what do you think? You know we we have t shirts that made up last year that we wear with Joe. Kelly fight club on the Front Joe. Kelly's is the team mate. You always WanNa have and when he's on the other team, he can't stand him and whether Dusty Baker swearing at number Carlos Correa is looking at them you know I I think there's something about Joe Kelley that I would love to have on my team I I like the semi crazy guy when I was you know playing soccer through high school and you had a full back that was willing. To go out and really attacks somebody else that's good by me. But if he was on the other team I hate plan against them that's who that's you. Joe Kelly is and and that's what you know that. That's what you want and look the astros cheated. There's there's no two ways about it somebody was going to do something and when you wake up the next day and find out, it was Joe Kelly is my that's appropriate. That makes sense. I get it. Now, the the idea that you're throwing up and at somebody's head, that's awful that I mean that's off. but the idea that it was Yo- Kelly and happened doesn't surprise me at all. No. Behind Bregman you could see in Bregenz faces like Oh. Okay. Here we go. But it didn't stop there how about the multiple pickoffs to first base with a three run lead With, the aggressive base dealer Bregman at. First base. It did almost like he he was thrown at him and I don't know whether or not he was but I'm sure that got the astor's attention and then the whole back and forth between he and Carlos. Correa. What was your take on all that with Carlos? Well the facial expressions of Joe Kelley. Now that's another talent that. Didn't necessarily know that he had. So we got to see a cody face and other things. electric buster. This this just doesn't doesn't surprise me I think that there was some restraint showed in the benches-clearing thankfully in a pandemic trying to stay away I recall that there was some. You know rules put into play through the agreement like there is no arguing there is still fighting. You can. You can face some type of punishment if you do that. So there was some restraint and all of it and and that part was was good as well. I'm glad that's how that played out. I'd be shocked if this is the last time we have something similar to this. Incident like this Carl involved the Astros this year. How about you? But I think the fact that it happened you know and nothing nothing serious happened I. I do think it allows other teams I think your point about Bregman after being you know behind the count. Kelly does that I think bregman recognition and maybe others like all that's right now I remember this was the team that cheated the dodgers and others out of a potential world series now I remember this make sense. So I think that stuff goes on and there may be other teams that do it wouldn't surprise me. All, right. What's your take now in the marlins situation as we move forward in baseball in particular, I've been telling friends because they've asked you know baseball is going to be over I'm like, Oh, now the train is going down the tracks they are plowing ahead Dan the torpedoes do the best you can with to have what do you think? I think one hundred percent look I think the the things that I took away from yesterday was the idea that there have been over what forty, six, hundred or sixty, four, hundred I forget what the the first. Number. Yeah. Tests and nobody else on any team on the field test positive. So I mean to me means this is working. I think whatever the MARLINS did to get themselves in trouble the way that they did and there are various reports out there that there's there's to me reason for for punitive action for some of the behavior If in fact what's being reported is accurate. Now again, I don't know that and I don't want to go down a path of that's That's what happened but. The. Idea that you could be putting yourself your teammates and other teams at risk in the middle of what we all know is such a tenuous situation to me. That would be something I mean we saw the NBA player who left to go to a funeral ended up at a bar or something get cold out I. Think you have to do that here with the Marlins I'm sorry. Yeah we've heard fear from guys like Dave Martinez other players tweeted out about that. There's been concerned but I think generally speaking from team to team they were kind of knocked back by the Marlin situation because teams I think have developed some confidence with this that it's actually working it is interesting car in the last twenty four hours I'm starting to get the sense from talking with players texting with players that they're beginning to flex their muscles to try to. To improve the situation in other words I think coming out of the weekend situation with the MARLINS and Phillies a lot of people around baseball are asking why the heck were they allowed to play on. Sunday given that she had a positive tests on. Friday three more on Sunday. Why were those teams on the field on Sunday and then we saw yesterday the Washington nationals basically taking a team vote saying Yup we. Going to Miami, we heard about Anthony Rizzo texting Joey votto. Hey, what do you think about playing today? We know you guys have a couple of situations in your clubhouse. How are we going to do that on my sense is players now are like, yes, there are holes in this thing and we want to fill in gaps. I think that's right. I think the players also recognize that between themselves and baseball There are extraordinary efforts being made on both sides and likely to be turned up. You need to do more you. You have identified different areas in which there are a possible you know holes as you say where you get tested on a Tuesday but your results don't come back until. Thursday. Well, what happens to Wednesday but I think what happens when you get ahead of it when you were steadily testing and you're assuming that the behavior of the players and everyone else is in line with all the protocols you should be okay when you step. Out of line and do things that wouldn't otherwise be within the guidelines of what you would consider to be proper behavior will the that that throws the entire system potentially out of whack. So yeah if you have a positive or multiple positives, I think that's another valuable lesson painful as it may have been thankfully currently, the Phillys haven't tested positive but yeah, I think you could say to yourself as a as a league hold on you know to to to players from team x have tested positive. We can't allow them to play and you do have to press pause I. Think Buster yesterday to we realized like you know what? There may not be sixty games in the future for every team. Some may play fifty six may play and and if we have to fall back on the winning percentage, we'll do that too. So again it's it's a moving you'll volving process and I think that's encouraging. Yeah. The question I got an sportscenter last night was can baseball get to a fair and balanced schedule and I said he Kevin I'm like forget fair van Balanced Kevin it's not happening. This is just merely throwing something together trying to make the best of a bad situation and as you said, it's going to be moving. It's GONNA be evolving they'll trade out different games like next week affiliate are scheduled to play in Miami if that changed if we hear about the phillies players like raising their hands especially because they've been hearing the same stories, you have about what the Marlins didn't do. I wouldn't be surprised as VILLI. Say you know what Marlins can come up here? I think that's going to be in evolution if some teams like the Marlins to play in fifty one games and some teams play fifty, eight fine go by winning percentage and I, and I've heard this the team level that you you tell me though if you say the, marlins could come up here. Then what are you judging as far as your the phillies you're judging the marlins because you're inviting them up there or you judging Miami, like well, that's where I wonder if this goes to hotspots, etc. Why would it be okay for the Marlins to come up and play us as opposed to US going to Miami to play the same team we're inviting up here. Yeah. That is a great question of logic does not apply in two thousand twenty. Right. I mean I. Just think now what's going on is the players alike look we don't know exactly what's going on. We just wanted created a situation where we're going to be the most comfortable Derek jeter announced yesterday the Marlins go into testing everyday Carl and I've heard this at the team level we need to go to testing everyday forget the every other day thing we need to go to testing every day do you think that happens I think they're available. I think if these teams have them, they absolutely should do it again, the bigger issue to me is the immediacy of the result and that's the biggest challenge in the whole process. That's not that's not exclusive to baseball I think you and I talked about this I mean my family did test it took US eight days. I understand that baseball has access to a variety of private testing facilities etcetera etcetera. But. The test or the facility allows you to get results immediately they're always going to be that you know that lead time and that that to me is the problem you WanNa, test every day. That's great like I said for the twenty nine other teams you know you are ahead of the game nobody has tested positive. Barring again a freakish outbreak because as we've learned maybe somebody in a hotel, maybe a worker whatever somebody on an airplane you're doing everything that you can to prevent it and yet you still get it. That I get but I think you know ultimately the process has to be streamlined so that you can get results immediately. Then you'll know that idea that you get tested one day play that night play even the next night and find out. There you go. That won't work that doesn't work. It doesn't provide incredible security and peace of mind that that to me is the is the biggest issue. Underneath the MARLIN situation we're seeing every day it seems like pitchers going down. Here's a friend had world Perez on Golick and Wingo talking about that? Yeah it's and no doubt I mean you're just burn Andrew is thirty six going down with with an elbow issue we don't know the time line of that. We thought it was going to be at the beginning of this initial reports were that was gonna be the entire season that on not that often instead of waiting not yet. That's not the. Corey Kluber going down at least for four weeks from the shoulder looks terrorists major of these mid thirty guys that are going down trying to ramp up again and try to go one hundred percents. Full throttle that you know is is concerning because these are guys that are really never had major on issues. Going into Summer Camp Carl. That's what I kept on hearing from teams. They were fearful about the possibility in this weird season of unusual training get ramped up for spring training, and then they shut down and then they're throwing into their pillows or to their wives or intend to pile of dirt. There would be pitchers that are going down in. All over the place. Yeah. It is and I think part and parcel of what twenty twenty is I i. don't I don't know that there's an answer to that question You know you I've seen a lot of starting pitchers come I. would after four innings we saw with Jacob degrom who was unbelievable on opening day. And you take them out realize like this is this is out of an abundance of caution for the Pitcher It's clear that this is extraordinary and ordinary circumstances. The way they prepare etc I thought we'd see more hamstrings, calves and oblique things like that. As much as we have pictures, I think that there you know is a rash of big name pitchers that have been impacted Kershaw. As you mentioned you know Ver- lander So I that in in some ways feels a little bit like a negative coincidence that's occurred as opposed to Yes. It's going to be a bunch of pictures that's just my feeling on that. All right Gimme some observations from the start this season teams that have jumped out to you. But you know look you know we we knew that the rays we're going to be really good and the razor to a really good start Cleveland's playing really well, which would be great around the trade deadline and see if. Terry Francona has them there again, the red sox are a really really bad team with really really bad hit you really bad and it's interesting. You know a lot of people were on the White Sox reds and the padres right now one of them is playing well and the reds and the white sox are got one win. So those are quick early snapshots but again you go one in four and let's say it continues in. Your, your your to eight or your three and five You're you're in some trouble and and these teams were ones that I think most people said, here we go. Let's see what these young white sox all the moves reg made hardly means that they won't come back going to winning streak but those are some of the things that when you look at standings and see the way that they're playing, you're you're a little bit surprised by it. Yeah and you love the Indians because their starting pitching and give them a chance. Their position player group has gotten better Francisco, indoor. Hitting home run yesterday man, the padres are fun like they are. Yeah, they are. They're a blast to watch again even the mets who have at times look good and bad. This may have a lot of this early season numbers who you play your point about the red sox. Buster. that. Looks. That hardly looks like a team Representative I mean should Alex Cora Rabanne for to note thanking him for removing him from the equation I mean.

Jumping into the numbers. Matthew evaluating millions and leases of data and lead. The. Cincinnati I do hundred. This is Hembo knows and Hembo is Paulin Makita researcher at ESPN haunt you on the show get up but he told us he's the head aunt your check with Mike Greenberg and he said he's a wild partier that green is jealous of Hembo we I was talking with Co ravitch about what happening Houston last night. It. Was Amazing to me. It felt like Joe Kelly's out there and he's doing his thing and then he got three you know on Alex Bregman and I felt like the light switch went on what was your take? I probably a pretty good way to describe it I suppose if there was any pitcher likely to do such a thing. The would have been taper of Joe Kelley for doing it but once you get behind that was Bregman in that case, he will be back and I don't know if you've thought. He made an he dented the backstop I mean he's that doesn't like it was very obviously pension. You know given the sort of rules and regulations now obviously, it makes any sort of retaliation in any sort of puppets much more difficult but obviously. I'm not surprised that the benches md but this year, it's just very different I. think all that will be much more subdued. It seems pretty clear based on the way that Alex Bregman took it that he wasn't son like he these guys know this is coming doesn't make it any easier when it does and don't make it hurt less when they get hit but I'm with you Kelly was erotic three. fastball getaway, and then the pitch to call his career was a breaking ball clearly just gotTa wait too. So it's hard to say exactly what it's always very difficult to judge intent but this. I hate to put it this way. It is an essential good for based. We're GONNA leave the first hour of our show. Today we're in the second hour of our show today, and this is the kind of stuff he gets fans riled up no harm no foul in this case in my judgment and I think this is something that the Astros will probably come to expect occasionally throughout season. Yeah I kinda disagree on one point first off after Bregman got to first base I thought it was funny the Joe Kelley kept firing pickoff throws over there at least brave and, of course, being known as such base stealer and if he told me that he wasn't, he was trying to bounce one near him and that breaking ball he threw to Korea that was inside look I you're right normally you say a guy throws a breaking like well, he didn't do that on purpose I duNNo. Jill Kelly Joe Kelley is is a is an old school kind of crazy Hembo and then you in the back. He may have just said, you know what? I'm going to spin this one because that one was it wasn't just he didn't get away just a little bit. No that wasn't have much hump and also I have to remember the Joe Kelley. Breaking, ball is eighty seven eighty. Just was just GonNa leave him more also but. This is this is just the start of it. This is just the start of it and it's hard for me to blame the dodgers fulfilling such a way but obviously, we talked about all spring. season. So much sure. You have to be very judicious with how you choose your frontier justice I. Guess I suppose the dodgers at the right time. It didn't cost him anything clearly last night and we'll see what happens games on ESPN. The most exciting teams in the season the Sandiego padres when he got on them. Both. So this is a really interesting bunch hardly enough time hold enough of a sample, make any conclusions, but it should be enough time to say padres fans because this lineup has taken new character with Trenton Grisham Tommy, Fan and jerks and grow far this team mates I in pitches per plate appearance they. Pink last season, they own the fourth lowest swing in mystery. They ranked twenty eight last season. So they went second in walkway ring eighteen last season, and lastly every fourth and average launch angle. They ran twenty seven by that measure last season. So the combination of there's new edition and a new heating philosophy that has. Produced good results so far. We'll check back in a month or so to see that formula that sticks but I really encouraged if I were padre fan today waking up to see how much this team is adjusted year-over-year for their approach is concerned and there was new additions have clearly made a big impact Later today I'm going to send a text to my good friend Dwayne Keith. the broadcaster and ask him to ever seen a right handed hitter go otto in that ballpark in San Francisco 'cause I don't remember how about you. In the way story, I should have said Fernando Tat tat junior hit a ball right down the line opposite field. Cleared the wall I can't remember seeing a right handed hitter do that. That is an absolute. I can probably look up both to see how infrequently that's happened but for twenty year old now they're gonNA opposite field powers extraordinary I'm not. He is. We talked about him last year his adjusted numbers last season in about half of the season whereas in President, almost anybody in baseball history through that age and we're talking about a shortstop and accused can really run. I'm not sure there's. Much. There's a more exciting player in baseball than him and that was a club last year that obviously didn't. Manny Machado disappointed Eric hosmer disappointed I don't know what it is but to be clicking right away sometimes can be a flu when you SORTA juxtaposed with the approach numbers that I provided it makes me think that's a club that could really do some damage. Okay we've got three young stars playing on ESPN today. Would he got a remote Laureano Dustin May Kyle Lewis. Most are on this not I can but he's quietly becoming a best hitters in baseball the twenty nineteen all star break only Nelson, Cruz. Jose. Ramirez and Alex Bregman? Higher. than he does and Laurino spruce they four, fifty, nine average and eight of the crew slug against fastballs during that time. But they're dustin may became an internet sensation on opening night the video game type Free Pitch Mex- tailor-made for pitching twitter feed was only one star, but may rank first in average finger velocity I in average curveball velocity third in average cutter velocity he's got one of the most live armed in a sport and both there as it relates to. Kyle. Lewis dating back to last season he's got any three hundred with the nine sixty to. Ninety seven big league played appearances early numbers to find him if they classic all or nothing player grading in the ninety eight percentile and barrel rate and grading in the second percentile in with rape. But consider me skeptic at least for now. This is the player Scout Two hundred and seventy seven times against ninety nine walk in his last two. Minor League. Stops with them fairly unimpressive power numbers. But of course, those numbers were put up with the less live minor league ball. That's something we've talked about a lot. It's hard to grade these players there to judge players based on their mind early numbers position players when they come to the big leagues and all of a sudden impulse starts jumping off their barrel. Just to follow on dust in May look we talk about the dodgers in their money and especially after signing mookie Betts that two thousand, sixteen drafted they had may go down as one of the best that we've seen their first pick wasn't until twentieth overall. They took Gavin locks then with a thirty second pick overall they took will smith. Then in the third round, they got dust in May and then in the ninth round. Tony Cellino that's pretty good scouting and development I'd say Yeah No kidding it's funny because we think that is obviously the big market club because they are. Able and willing senders because they do a book last season sixty, five percent of dodgers participation came from homegrown players was the highest mark in the major league. It's a big market club that operates. With. A small small market mentality and bad has has driven them to the sustained success that they're enjoying under under feeding. All right Sir I appreciate it him. Oh, good to talk with you. Likewise literally. Mugabe Baltimore superfan fourteen years old passed away yesterday from cancer. He was beloved figure in the Baltimore area. He spent an estimated seventy, five percent of his life in hospitals and with someone who called it a local radio show to talk about the orioles the ravens constantly, the Orioles recently inducted into their hall of fame in last night after Mo- passed away. Baltimore's trae Mancini wrote on twitter your kindness bravery, and positively has left a lasting impact on all of us who were lucky enough to have met you. You have truly made this world a better place. The Orioles also posted this on social media recitation of all the funding. Mo had with the team with Adam, Jones with buck showalter with trae Mancini give listen. One of our favorite guys is little more right We got a great player that's coming out right now that we're going to give you a chance interview. You have no idea who it is. Good. I don't. And look at them. Brought you a little present. Let me hold the microphone real quick. Okay. He's got something for you. Oh. You Got Your Own Jersey in your name is on the back. Thank you everyone for having me just awesome to be here. Thank you. Very special kid with US MO- Gab. He is a Baltimore. Shorts Mo- longtime into one, five, seven, the Fan Pittsburgh. Albert. I got this. Let's do this. Label. Here today. Would be nice to leave those Yankee from wartime. Wouldn't it? We all know you've been been through a lot this year but you always seem to say so positive, how do you do it? Here wake up every morning, I always feel. A key thing create that pretty cool. So I just think I just didn't positive and I just like I liked I liked to have fun. Good Yeah. To Baseball Games always fallen knows one of my favorite things to do. Grown up to what has been your most memorable experience coming to a game here. Throughout the first pick last. Day I ever had. His most upbeat kid I've ever met in my life and he's so inspirational. We try to get him out. He's GonNa be here sometimes I think he's May. Come this weekend actually out to a game and and yeah, I try to hang out with them and talk to them whenever I can. Man. F. Anybody doesn't know about him you look him up. You'll see in a second that he's the most positive in the world. So it's it's pretty inspiring. Now this morning I exchanged messages with Adam Jones, and this is what he wrote about Mo- about meeting, and for the first time he wrote I heard a kid that just loved the Os and listen to all the Games. So we invited into a game and he knew all of our stats, his laugh was infectious and could brightness stadium he was just filled life and optimism no matter what was going on with them. He never complained just loved this teams and his players made you realize that life is short and enjoy it. He was a pure gem in the Baltimore community lost one of its biggest fans. Bleacher tweets. Right, buster, we got some bleacher tweets or this morning Let's rip through them. I learned from my old friend. Mitchell at Tigers of Detroit, is there any flare more important to the lineup then wants soda is to the nationals their lineup looks completely toothless without him. Among. Teams that we think of as being good teams absolutely. You know they already lost Anthony Random to free agency during the off season when we got word of that. Just before the start of the game, you're thinking boy, how could the national survive the loss of want Soto? Cordless Munoz at Carlos Almighty says Francisco and door Jose by Carlos Correa Cory Seager and trump story. They are all twenty twenty free agent shortstops which one you size door will end up with the biggest contract that offseason which ends up having the best career. That's a great question. Those are some greatest. Class. It is a stack class I'm GONNA say Cory Seager I think he's gotten better I think he's figured some things out. He's. Recovered from that Tommy John Surgery that that he's had and he looks fantastic. I'm certainly for him. Very exciting player next one here comes from Eric Sorensen at coach Durance and nine I'm loving being able to hear the reaction from the dugouts when you guys have big hits or big place I feel like if MLB can figure out how to get more of that on the broadcast, you can attract more fans by having more game down thoughts. Eric I said we got started if it were up to me as someone who covers the game I would love no fan sound like i. i would just let the raw feed the field because I'd want to hear the players I. think that's part of the reason why putting the fans out. To mute some of the voices in the to drown out some of the back and forth. But it would be fun I've been saying I love for it to be like an American Legion game. Just, look for me yelling up from my seat in the operator section last tweet. This morning comes from Aaron at a Iran San. Diego it's clear that the system having commissioner and ahead of Players Union is not a good one. What would it take for baseball to create a new position that would be the ultimate decision maker who both rob Manfred and Tony Clark would report to? No chance, Aaron? It's a nice thought in theory. 'cause you. You love some leadership in situations like this, and baseball has been sorely lacking in the leadership but here's the bottom line. This is a business and the the thirty baseball owners are not going to turn over control of their business to independent party and I don't know any other business that would to be honest and so that's not going to change the last semi independent commissioner that we had was Fay Vincent and he got run out of office because the owners felt like he was acting with too much economy. So I wouldn't wouldn't wait for that to happen. Thank for using the Hashtag bleacher tweets sentiment me over the next couple of days I love reading your tweets and I'm glad to be back in the seat.

AMA support the Tim mckernan show, make sure you're doing business with Ryan Kelly, the home loan expert dot com. Pick six is becoming a punchline gentlemen, let's just be honest about it. Let's just have a real honest conversation with ourselves right now. The records are poor the locks of the week somehow or even worse. And yet here we are putting typically ding as if we know what's going to happen in football games, and I'm leading with a record of twenty and twenty while we fumble fuck around every Thursday in the home loan expert dot com studios. Well. Can't argue that that's what that's what it is producer, Joe, you're eighteen and twenty four. You are in second place by a matter of four tenths of a point over g unit, who is seventeen and twenty three for those of you just starting to catch onto the pick six phenomenon that's sweeping the nation pushes just get disregarded. They don't count as anything in g unit night, both pushed on the Vikings minus ten last week that was a bad push. Was that not a bad push? Yeah, a bad push that was we were leading almost that entire. Yeah. I wasn't even really paying attention to because I'm always monitoring my draft kings failures and, oh my God, what the hell happened there. So they wind up pushing the reminds ten and I was set up to have a really nice weekend as always I go with the over on the Friday night games. I would recommend that the people and that covers. And then Joe, you and I were fortunate role. Damn Todd, got a safety because that allowed them to recover. And then and I was on Purdue against Illinois, which was an easy place to unit. I think you express your affinity for that play after I made it last week and that was a no sweat play. And I was on Auburn, but I had like five other games and Stingray warned us about Auburn and even talked about Auburn losing, and I still went with Auburn and within the first quarter I saw how terrible they were on third down defense and the ability to stop Tennessee's passing game, which I have a feeling Alabama might be able to do this weekend and and I thought, oh boy, Auburn might lose this game. Forget about me being minus fifteen. So lost that one. And then I made the mistake of betting the under on a Kansas City Chiefs game she unit, you experience that with your lock in September? I did it knack Tober and we both met our maker in historic fashion. I mean the over, it's a comfort like in the first quarter with three minutes left, something's gotta give these guys bless that back actually bet it to. I actually bet. I loved it so much. I bet it usually make. These picks be nice if I got them right. I actually bet that I loved it. I loved it. I was, I guess, if you do look at the game script, there were some defensive. There's a defensive touchdown and some pickoffs in deepened territory that the played a role in. It's still even without those. I think it goes over. So you know, another fucking gem on a lack of the week. I'm to inform my locks to unit is two and foreign his locks. He's seventeen and twenty. Three overall producer Joe. I don't know how you do it. If you were six of seven, I'd be typing my cap, but somehow you've lost six of seven locks and that just from my standpoint, as a statistical phenomenon. Nurse, Nancy. I'm your JC into like when Doug tells Larry nickel, wrestling's fake. Well, you know, try to seven losers is is honestly almost impossible. I know. But yet, I mean, it's not like g unit Neier crushing it. I mean, we've lost. We've lost four of six. So it's just you just happen to somehow be worse, but it's this mess on the locks overall. The whole thing's a mess. I mean it just it. People should listen to it in fate us and they'll make money. I guess that's what it is. We're now last week. You said you're gonna start fading yourself. So did you actually get games? Right? But you picked the other way and so then therefore you show losses? Well, the big game that I was I've kind of faded myself faded. What I usually would would do is I went with Mizzou and I usually would have picked Alabama just like everybody else and and owed really showed me how that that can pay off. You know, it's funny. I was talking about how everyone needs to stop wanting to fire Odem on Friday, what you wanna fire him because he thought they were gonna win in Tuscaloosa. You know, you have to talk about how you know who else we're going to get. And you know, we think that we're some sort of. Program that can bring in these big names. I'm saying, let's just let's see what can do by the time. He didn't kick that field goal at the end of the game to cover my. Motherfucker now before the games even over to justly. You got a unique spot with our watch party over at my house and gangster Pete was pacing in the background the entire night. And he said he didn't have a lot of money on it, but based on the pacing, I feel like you might have had like ten thousand on Mizzou can tell you I pays from again. That's what it does. Is that right? Yeah. So yes, he really thought that they might win. I mean, God bless you. Good for you. I mean, it would have been lovely, but it really kind of was over within the I like to plays. And then Iggy was on was Alabama and him in plow. Boy were dressed up as Alabama fans to taunt them. Zuri fans watching as they are one to do. So we start off this week with Missouri and they are minus ten, at least that's what they were when I was looking at the numbers, not it's changed already. It is changed. I mean it was minus ten at like nine, forty, five. We got him zoo, modest nine, it's dropped up point full point. Why don't know what to do about this one. I hate that we have to pay in like last week. I loved Alabama. But I mean, I love the under on the chiefs and patriots, you know. So it's not like I'm some wizard on this stuff in really the way that the Missouri game played out. It was surprised it was as close as it was, but we continue to see the issue with the passing game without Emmanuel hall, and he's not gonna play again. And we haven't seen Missouri move the ball stretch the field in particular, ever since hall got hurt against Purdue. And so even though I recognize Memphis might be overvalued based on the fact that they nearly beat UCF last week UCF talk. You see him caucus officially underway about four minutes in that. I, I don't. If Missouri is gonna win this game, it's because they're going to be able to run it down their throats, which I think they will do in the thing about it is for as much negative equity as Missouri has in the fan base right now and listen, it's not like I'm pumping sunshine. In in any capacity. I had some foresight on what I thought was going to happen with Missouri this year, and this was right after last season, and that was Missouri had a run of opponents at the end of the season. Last year that the vast majority of teams would be able to beat. But for whatever reason, I guess it is kind of the way that it works in Saint Louis that the people who cover teams were also kind of cheering for the teams, which is because most of the people cover the teams grew up here. And so that's the way that it kind of works very unique thing. If you look at other top twenty five markets, like if the blue score goal, there's thirty guys who are in my business cheering, but whatever it's the way that it works fine. God bless doesn't bother me, but you also have to take that into context when evaluating whether or not a team is really performing or not performing. And so all of a sudden we can look at Barry Odem turn this thing around and bury them. You know, they didn't lose, but they were playing teams that it was going to be tough to lose two. They all firing their coaches after they've lost Missouri. And so I think it set expectations false level, which is the truth that was great. They lose good coach. And so and then you see what they have to do when they're playing a team. It was kind of not having the greatest seasons and probably wasn't all that excited about being in the Texas bowl in Texas, especially for that programs, you know, used to big picture and they just beat the hell out of Missouri and I'm going, this is going to be rough because they have four games in their first six that they could really lose even if they win three of them otas going to be catching hell. And that's what's what's what's that's what's played out here, but they really could have slashed should have won the South Carolina game at the same time because said they should've lost lost the Purdue game. And even though they didn't have a manual hall, we play, but he wasn't doing anything and they were playing against Georgia who I did think was overrated. But I, I'm, I'm now like not like discounting them at all. I just thought that they weren't the second best team in the country. They were relatively speaking close despite not having hall and despite really playing a bad game and then on Alabama. I mean, Alabama couldn't score in the third quarter. That's, you know, I mean, I guess they did on the final play because of drew lock like falling over something, but on the safety. But you know, I. I'm gonna take Missouri. I hate that we have to pick it because if we didn't have to pick it, I wouldn't touch it. But I'm going to take Missouri. I feel like the delta on this game is so wide. I could really see Missouri losing this game at the same time. I could see Missouri winning like something fifty, two twenty, and I put a higher probability on that. So game theory dictates I have to go with that play. So go Missouri and I'll take the free point gangster Pete just handout minus nine g unit. You finished second last week by winning two of your six games. I, it speaks volumes for this this podcast. What do you do with Missouri minus nine against the fighting Tigers of Memphis. I'll take Memphis. And no, no big reason other than in really unhappy with how last week worked out. So I'm not getting a large amount of cash on the fighting Tigers you know? No, no. But I mean, it just pisses you off when when this is the issue with Odem when you're losing by? Well, in this case happened to be twenty nine and the numbers twenty eight. And you could be on the chopping block and you're what you think. Field goal for field goal because you know that you're a lot of your alumni have big money on it. G unit texted me. Absolutely. Asinine premise, and I think you should be off the pod, what does he plan to win the game at that point? What what. What. He actually catches more hell if he kicked the field goal. Well, I think that's bullshit. So now you're fading Missouri bad that he didn't kick a a cosmetic oil Memphis plus nine producer Joe. I am. I actually do have a good reason for taking the nine points and that is the post playing Alabama factor and I kinda win, but I think there's other, I, I think it's going to be a little bit closer than than that fifty two twenty. And then we'll kind of play into one of my other picks in this game, but I will take the Memphis Tigers and and take those nine points and it's much happier when I heard that it was ten because earlier this morning I'd saw it was nine and so I would have happily taken that yet. So it was it's is six, forty five, it was. It was a tense. I'm surprised at dropped a full point. I don't. I mean, I, like I said, this isn't a confidence play at all. Not that my confidence plays matter anyway, because I'm to inform my locks, but I, I really hate that we have to pick it and I real could see Missouri losing this game in in God help us if if that were to happen, because that point all hills. Gonna break loose. So two boys are on Memphis, and I am the lone wolf on Missouri. I believe that's the first time we've had that happened in pick six pick six brought to you by Mark Hanna of evergreen, wealth strategies. I don't know about you, but from my standpoint, I have a major regret about high manage my money in my twenties, and my thirties, I'm almost embarrassed by it, but there's someone who can help you doesn't matter if you're in your twenties, thirties, forties, fifties, whatever, Mark, Hanna, evergreen, wealth strategies is the guy met with Mark, and I was thinking to be good to have a new sponsor in the podcast, but I wanted to make sure that he knew what he's talking about. I had never met him and sure enough after talk to him just refu- minutes. I was saying to myself, man, I wish I would've known this guy's twenty years ago because I would have been business with them and I'd be in a different position financially, managing my money much more smartly than because I screwed around like so many people do in their twenties, and it's not like you gotta go gotta, put away half my paycheck. That's not it at all. But you are at least aware of what you're doing and it compounds and benefits you in such a short amount of time to. And that's the key that people just don't think about. When it comes to managing money and it's so important Marquette of evergreen. Wealth strategies can put you on the right path. I recommend him wholeheartedly to the audience three one four eight eight nine zero five zero three, three one, four eight eight nine zero five zero three or check them out online at evergreen s. t. l. dot com. It's Mark Hanna of evergreen, wealth strategies. I think for the third or fourth week in a row, I'm leading off with my picks. That's not a good sign boys. Even though I am leading off. You know g unit producer Joe is said you're starting to build a pretty big lead and I I would love it. If it were the case. I thought I might last week based on Joe going one in five on on Saturday in me three and one heading into Sunday and really liking Minnesota minus ten in the under on the chiefs patriots, but finished three and two. And so I only have a record of twenty and twenty and I guess a three game lead on g unit and I don't know what the qualification be for you producer Joe. I guess a three game lead on you as well ballpark. So. I, I lead things off here and I'm all college this week. I had been kind of going NFL here and there, but I'm all college this week already gave Missouri minus ten. I'm going to take Oregon plus three on the road against Washington state, Oregon loss, three producer, Joe. You made a noise was that annoys of being surprised or going, you know what? I like that play. I like that. I think I think there's some big thing happening in Oregon. Turned the corner there should be under the heading undefeated you know, I mean, they put her head of where. The head of where I think should have been. Hold on a second. All of a sudden g unit to unit. G unit, two units, panty day long, still picking a field goal? I would've lived on tiger board for the next year of Barrio to would have kicked the. It would have been the greatest thing ever had the tiger poured seen him kick afield goal down twenty nine. What are you? What are you talking about? Oregon should be charged two losses that went for the way they pissed away the Stanford game, bright, right? Oregon against Stanford. I don't remember certain. That was that was a pretty devastating collapse. That was an absolute mess. Nebraska and I'm going with Oregon plus three. I'm on the Colorado train after I was on the USC train last week. I'm on the Colorado chain, getting plus fifteen and a half against Washington. I'm on the Arkansas train minus seven, Tulsa you don't like that. Let's because Arkansas last one, you're Arkansas game. You took the oldness over ole miss arc. I just I just struggled to get on any train right now, but isn't until next. Quaint weird, that's that's my, that's a loser there. All right. Well, let's fading me. I like it and then I am going to go with and I'm, I'm so this is one that when I saw what the schedule was, I'm like, I can't wait take Purdue, but I have the same feeling on Purdue as I did as I was talking about Auburn against Tennessee. So therefore I can't take Purdue plus thirteen and a half. But I feel like when I was looking at the highest state schedule and I was building my UCF thesis which I need to address here in a moment. The Purdue game was one of the games that I felt like could be one of the games that trips up Ohio State that I know they would almost lose to Minnesota. Granted, they want point away in the second half. They were losing in the second quarter last week at home to Minnesota. They just do that and they just piss away a game that they shouldn't lose. So it might not be Michigan who beats him. It'd be like Purdue, but I something in me, tells me it's not. They're not gonna cover it, and so I'm not gonna take it. E because I feel the same weird feeling. I felt about Auburn, Tennessee last week, and I still went forward on it. So my final play will be Wyoming plus fifteen against Utah, state Wyoming, plus fifteen against Utah state. So to recap, Oregon plus three at Washington state, Colorado plus fifteen and a half at Washington, Arkansas minus seven against Tulsa and Wyoming, getting fifteen against Utah state. Those are my four college plays before I reveal my lock of the week, which of course will guarantee that it will not cover g unit. The action now moves over to you. Well, I'm doing all NFL this week. It's crazy. We didn't even talk about this before the show and we're splitting it have now. I'm gonna go Broncos minus one. At the Zona cardinals. This may seem like a trap because it's a pretty me. This is historically illegal where you're supposed to be Friday through Monday, but considering. This games tonight. Shit, I really liked this game. No go and I'll let you pick. It must. Joe is a problem. He's all sauced up in Mexico. You're all about the rules. He's listening. Shop. What does that mean stickler for sure. No, I'm fine with it just because what are the first thing have you did this morning is place to Wade. You're on that game with the Denver Broncos as it is. So since we're in alignment here, I will. I will allow it as long as you were fine with leader of the pack. God bless there. It is. You got the Broncos minus one. Thank Joe. Hey, Joe, what you get that line at this morning, wasn't it? I got it at one. Okay. Because I know it was I think it's opened it what? Two and a half. It seems like it should be going the other way. That's why I think it might be a trap, but it seems like a pretty obvious to me, the cardinals just aren't aren't good. I guess they covered last week talking to you and Joe like it. It's probably trap. All right. So Broncos Mayes one titans plus six and a half. I'd like to get that half point that games in London, titans chargers. I think about this one is charges are there. Travel is just a huge bitch. They've been in Cleveland the last week getting ready, and then they come to London, and it's just a lot and six and a half points. And I think they might give them a close one number three, patriots minus three at Chicago. I think I think this is a pretty obvious bet to right, which is why the bears will cover. Yeah, you know, I, some of these, I think this could be another bloodbath against me here. Exactly. Of the benefit of this little round table. We have here if anything, we open up people's minds and they get the juices flowing and they start thinking and I that hearing myself talk like holy shit. That's a bad back. I mean, that's like the square of square plays every guy with a twenty game parley sheet in Las Vegas this weekend. We'll have the patriots minus three. Well, I can't change it now. The patriots will be involved in everybody's teaser that they could possibly having my sweetheart here. So so pats minus three number four, we're going to go Redskins at home two point favorites against the Cowboys. I just think that that that line should be at least three and think at a neutral site, it's probably a pick him. I get three points at at home, so I'll take the point. All right, Broncos titans. Patriots Redskins. Jiyun its plays are in before we go to producer, Joe, allow me to let our audience know about Tom Schmidt and salt and smoke. We had our little watch party on Saturday night for the Missouri, Alabama game on Facebook, live and on periscope. Tom Schmidt was the official food sponsor of the watch party and gangster Pete. How about them? Rabies? How about that? Brisket. How about those burnt and toasted ravioli? I couldn't stop eating it. It was so choice, wasn't it? It was so choice choice. They're online at salt and smoke ST l. dot com. People know about the restaurants on del mar and on Hampton and. South city, but they may not realize salt smoke caters. This is the second time I've had salt and smoke catering event, and it's so good. It's so easy. And I think so many people don't even think about them as catering, and so people come over and you know, you always want to. If you throw in an event, you want people to have a good time and eat well and have a surplus of food and so- salt and smoke certainly does that they're online at salt and smoke s. t. l. dot com producer Joe your four games in addition to Memphis. I'm going to stay with the Memphis in Missouri game, and I heard you threw out a score of fifty two twenty. That would not quite good enough for me because I'm going to go over the seventy four. I just think it's going to be two teams that aren't going to be able to stop one another, and there will be lots of points in this match up, so I will go over there. Then I feel like most years unusually a week or two late and this year I'm gonna try and be maybe the dead on right week after Georgia losing last week and some other teams moving to losses. There's going to be a huge battle for one loss teams, and I'm going to back three one loss teams from different conferences this week as they continue their March to try and get into the college football playoff. So I am going fillet, seven, Michigan wolverines against Michigan state, and then only eight points with Oklahoma intimately six and a half points with LSU and real wanna Jeff and how shot to play for the national championship. They can't afford losses at this point. But Georgia coming back to the field kinda opens up attention to another spot. If you're going to assume that Alabama was gonna remain undefeated for the rest of the year injured. Only listen that Notre Dame's gonna get tripped up along the way that a whole bunch of teams with one loss or do we fighting for those lots to playoffs about who is sad, Michigan minus seven, LSU minus six and a half and in win Oklahoma minus eight who's alone Flynn. Honestly, man, I don't know. Perfect. This podcast should be removed from the teeth. Being removed from reality for almost a week. Now at this point, I, I don't have any English speaking sports channels here really hurting so blank. Yeah. ESPN and ESPN two, but this all it's like the Portis and and so. Wants to buy anything Spanish podcast. Your report. This is so so producer, Joe. I know you were not part of the podcast last week g units theory was you were so embarrassed by your previous week that you know showed us. That was my real life. Before the podcast, lot's of mistake. But we this innocence we pick game so inaccurately. We're just gonna make this a UCF podcast. And I introduced the thesis g unit that if there were not for power, five teams who go undefeated UCF would be getting into the college football playoff, not because I think they should. But because the fact they went undefeated last year didn't get in then beat Auburn. And so I think that the committee would then offer them up as a first round sacrificial lamb who I assume will be the the the number one seed role, damn Todd, and then kind of okay for anybody who else wants to, you know, western Michigan a couple of years ago, whoever else wants to say we should be in the college football, playoff. Here's what happens when you do you lose seventy two, three. Now after seeing UCF win on the road against a team that was Ford to in Memphis, and granted, they were Memphis and staying at their respective spot of number ten in the coaches poll, and number nine in the AP. Poll. Every moved up with all of those upsets. I'm now of the opinion that my theory is absolute bullshit because they will do everything they can to keep them out. And that's what that's what that what that told me last week at Notre Dame for my money had the least impressive win of the mall. And I'm pulling for Notre Dame big parents than than for me. But you know, my parents love for Notre Dame always factors into that. And I was watching that and I'm going, oh my God, they're gonna lose to Pittsburgh, and they've got a schedule that minus at USC should be pretty easy. The rest of the way they gotta play Syracuse Yankee Stadium, but they shoe competent. They shouldn't have any problems left. I mean, they got a great win against Michigan maybe before Michigan got their act together and they, they should be undefeated and they're about to lose to Pittsburgh will Notre Dame moves up. Everybody moves up in some of them moved up big time, but UCF stayed exactly in the same spot. And with that tells me is UCF even if they do go into feed. And even if you don't have four undefeated power, five teams UCF will not be getting into the college football playoff. So I was wrong. And I, I don't know how that would play out. I have a few people who've heard me talk about this who I guess for Saint Louis transplants living in Orlando, and they said it is all they talk about down there is how UCF got fucked in the polls this week, who would have thought that I would be paying attention to something that the people of Orlando or for monitoring as well. But I just when I saw them not move up, I'm like, wow, they're just not gonna. Did I realized they haven't beaten anybody, but they will be playing two teams or three teams. Maybe two teams that are in the top twenty five right now in Cincinnati and south Florida. Another, not you know your your textbook powerhouses so those teams were undefeated so, but I just feel like you could be the one that if they went undefeated that could be the discussion. If you have somehow some of these big schools all sitting there with one loss, you put an undefeated UCF in over a one loss, Notre Dame. Do you put a. Undefeated UCF in over the second one loss SEC team. If that were to happen, like if LSU or to beat Alabama and LSU's in the SEC championship game in wins, the SEC championship does a one loss, Alabama. Get in like what you happen last year. Yeah, exactly. So there's the official UCF talk for the week. It has been covered and covered thoroughly, and I don't even think of covering it like that in Orlando. All right. James Carlton of the James Collins state farm insurance agency has been a proud sponsor of this podcast since its inception and he's online at Carlton insurance dot net, but I shouldn't say he because it's a whole staff, seven people over there at thirty four north gore avenue in Webster, groves and James Carlton is someone who could save you money and he's at three one, four, nine, six one forty, eight hundred. When you call there, you know somebody's going to answer the phone and isn't that so refreshing. It's so rare. That's why it's refreshing and I'll save you money whether it be life insurance, home insurance, auto insurance, the customer service you received from the Carlton insurance agency is second to none. And the best part is you don't have to worry about doing all. The paperwork, they do it for you. Somebody who's now been working with James Carlton. I can tell you there absolutely is a difference in, honestly, if you want to see are going to be doing a spot for James Carlton gonna case, probably just like every other insurance guy, and then I now worked with them on all my guy. This guy gets it and that's why he's doing so well make the switch. You'll be happy. Did three one, four, nine, six one forty, eight hundred or go online at Carlton insurance dot net. This is the pick that g unit tells me I give too much weight too, but I do take pride in my locks producer Joe's. You know since we've been doing this for like seven or eight years under five hundred of over five hundred locks, I feel like that's a saving grace here. I'm twenty and twenty overall, but that's with being two and four on my locks, my lock of the week this week. I love, but I love the patriots chiefs under last week too. But I love it to the tune of sixty two, nothing kind of win. Anybody want to guess what my lock of the week is, you know, it's college k. you Texas Tech over. I don't recognize Lawrence, Kansas. Good. I've no, I, Joe, you want to think, again, knowing that you don't even know who Oklahoma's playing you picked him. So I figured you probably don't know my lack of the week is. So you want one of the teams you do not think it's going to score? Well, I mean, I think it's going to be an absolute blowout, an absolute blowout, a day of reckoning team. And in three, Alabama. No, too. I I'm kind of intrigued by that game. It's twenty eight and a half as last. I it and Knoxville, I don't know if they, I don't know if they go in the right direction. Now the answer is Clemson at home against undefeated NC state who has played but ass after but ass and will have their day of reckoning. That's what I believe will happen on Saturday at two thirty for nationally televised game. I, you know, just like people have told me, you know that there certain teams that kinda start falling apart after fast start in the NFL you know, take a look at these trends with Clemson. They're one of those teams that can get off to kind of a weird start. When the when the national championship I made reference to this that you know, they, they nearly lost a couple of times where they did loss lose. Maybe I think it might have been NC state. I think factoring that in additionally that I just think they absolutely blow them off the field on Saturday. And then the number is seventeen and a half. Is it not gangster p seventeen and a half. Is the lock of the week. So congratulations, North Carolina State g unit, you're up next. Benef- l. picking this on the fly? No, no, I was just looking at your your pick here. Looking at the game, you do you wanna fade it because then I feel better about it. Just seems like kind of a high line. If you asked me, I mean, maybe maybe thirteen and a half for fourteen and a half, jeez, seventeen, and a happy I'd go and go the other way. Why don't we just bet amongst ourselves and save ten. Yeah, no juice here. You know, I also like Arizona state. That's tonight though. It's my. Podcast me just give you a bunch of random. Randall the game yesterday, I like so the ravens, the ravens at home against the saints. This is a great bet, and I'll tell you why, you know when whenever you have to two of the best teams, one of the best offenses it in my opinion, by far the best defense just dominating defense, you take the defense at home. So with three points, I think the ravens are really good, bad and biggest kind of showing that because the majority of the money is on the ravens, but the majority of the bets are on the saints. So you're again going out of your way to bet with the squares? No, quite the well. No, with big money, I guess. So the money is on the ravens. The volume is on the saints. That's right. Okay. All right. I said at the other way, I'm with you then if that's the case and it's early in the week, so that could change. But I think I think the line is is right. I may be go to three and a half, but I. I think people are really hot in the saints and I'll take the good defense at home. Yeah, fading the saints on the road can can when you some cash. All right. So g unit is on the ravens minus three producer, Joe, what group of twenty two men in England or getting ready to play soccer at eight. This weekend. It's it's the first week back after the internet. Manchester United mix way to London to play gets Chelsea. Josie marina's former club. United are underdogs in this match. And so I will take them plus half a goal. Check check it out because half ago plus one fifteen, what I saw that morning. So that is why we don't let Joe pick things like minus above one twenty or something, and I'm trying to. So I'm a dog on this one plus plus half a gold one. Fifty Inkster pizzas verify units, very skeptical. For the rules. No, all I was the wing one alone play Thursday night game, but. Time for that show that was, oh, there's a lion being built. Catch my incredible five hundred record. I will be very happy getting that half goal and I think United win outright, but I will take that half goal. And if it ends up as a tie, I'm still winning. And that's really all I care about. Let me ask you, what do you think the the line is for the family to win the national championship right now? One to two. Pretty good. I do. I mean, what do you think Joe. Are they? They? They floss like two fifty minus two twang. Yeah. So it is about. I mean, that would've thought I tell you something I, I worry about if you're Alabama too. I just feel like that's that's a, that's a different operation. If he's not at quarterback, you know, I understand Missouri fans of the moral victory crowds like they, they completely shut them down in the second half, but they didn't have him functioning. Right. And so I wonder about that, which is why I'm kind of keeping my eye on what goes on with Tennessee this week at not from an upset standpoint, but from the fact that there are twenty eight and a half point favorite. I just don't know if that often that all the reason why they're so good is because of him not like hurts is like horrible. It's just to a put another level. So I do wonder about that now. And so then you look at who could give you really good value is kind of a team that wouldn't be in there right now that could get in there and somehow win it. And I don't know who you would pick. And by that, I mean a team that wouldn't be the top right now like a Michigan. You know, I personally don't see it with Michigan, but I'm just trying to think of team that could get in that wouldn't be in right now, you know, and here's, here's some. Thing because we know that if I'm picking it as my lock of the week, there's like ninety percent chance it does not cover. NC state is undefeated their game against West Virginia to their credit. They they did schedule a quality team out side of conference, and that was canceled. I would imagine that was hurricane-related on September fifteenth. And so their schedule there, three non conference wins James Madison producer, Joe, you're all modern Georgia state and Marshall, and they navigated on an eleven point victory against James Madison. And and then they beat Boston College by five, Virginia at home by fourteen. And that's what they've got on the resume. But if somehow they were able to repeat history and beat Clemson, I believe they'd be Clemson two years ago when Clemson won the national championship either way. It was a close game. I think they won, but the Jews. No, not last year with Syracuse. I think you're about to pick NC state is the. I don't know what I mean. You two fucking ladies. I've known each other forever giggle, all you pick games wrong or than show which is really saying something separate. The two of you know, we I haven't picked any of the that that NC state schedule after Clemson is this. That's my point. Syracuse, Florida state, Wake Forest Louisville, North Carolina, and East Carolina. My point is is if somehow they were able to be Clemson that they have a very high probability of winning. That's what I'm saying. Now. Joe is going to tell me about what's Florida state and Willie Taggart have turned it around what? What are you know? No, but but like I if I, I don't know if you can bet or if I would want to bet this week, the future on NC state to win the national championship slide, if you could get them as a playoff team, could you put in the vet, hey, I'd be yes. That seems like a wrap butter numbers, you're going to turn into couch playoff or their odds for them. I'm pretty sure there are at the at the same point. Well, they'll have. Well, they'll have an ACC championship game to play and because the ACC so screwy, I don't know. I'm assuming just based on where NC state is they're probably considered on the coastal side, the division. They're in the leaders there in the Atlantic so they wouldn't play the coastal winner, play intact. But are going to have similar since I would agree. I mean, obviously I'm making them beat the shit out of just because I was looking at their schedule when making the pick and I'm going, are they? I remember the Boston College game was kind of quote, unquote, big Boston College was I think they were ranked that got them ranked in the Boston College to Purdue and got massacred and Purdue began their turnaround. But I'm going who did NC state beat and then God, I haven't beaten anybody in, oh, what could they have? No one left, but I was going to. I mean, it'll be it'll be, you know, one of the games that people be like, oh my God. And now going back to Clemson where it's already fifty four to nothing in the second quarter. That's what I think we're going to see. I mean, if you're if you're grinding it out against James Madison, you know God's speed when you're you're up against your division rival that could preclude them from playing in the SEC championship game and a chance to play for the college football national championship. So that's my, that's my logic on that. All right producer Joe woma soccer game. Good to bring that back. Kind of moved off your Oklahoma state and Kansas state thing that you were doing for a few weeks. G unit unit is on the ravens minus three. And I feel like producer Joe, you and I have to form an alliance because these two little schoolgirls in here giggle at at our picks. And then for whatever reason, I think there's some kind of cartel with gangster Pete and g unit, not a successful one, but nonetheless it is a cartel. Nobody's harder on g unit. Is that right? Gee, unit you both pacing on Missouri, Alabama and Saturday. So you work together on that, you know, that was kind of a no doubt or law. I mean, I know I would expect them to kick a field goal, but you know that they're not. I mean after that safety legit. Legit, acting them to kick a few. I was not to say that word probably I can have him play it back for, you know, I, I wasn't pacing. He'd paces it all these these games, even though they're getting blown out or the winning and you just on the camera and people like, who is it? Because we have never really gangster Pete who is kind of old. Back here. Like tell Wang, stir Pete. I can't. Can't see. Doug, there's some guy walking back and forth. We don't know nobody will not like back there. That's what the theme was on the end. To get a cigarette and somebody said, Tim's grandma just went outside to smoke. The highlights of the watch so producer Joe, I would be like I say it every week at this point. Now it's still fucking punchline, but it'd be nice if somebody on a heater. I guess I started out. I think I start. Yeah, I did start out on a heater totally backed into that week one where if anything, you expect struggles such a shows what I know and then what up unit went on the heater with in particular, the NFL and and I, I call the tension to it and ever since. I mean, it's been a death spiral ever since I said, how about this g unit? So now at this point, I think people listen to this to to listen to us fumble, fuck around and pick games and accurately, and then just tweet at me about how terrible we are. That's that's fine. I enjoy it, but let me make this crystal clear to the audience. We don't know shit, hell one of the guys we. One of the guys on the podcast pig to game and didn't even know. And then blamed it on the Spanish it is resort. So that's the kind of coffee. You're the school names. Bill Harris's island off the coast of Mexico, which is a whole another podcast. So if you're listening to this for your picks as if it's like listen to the guys, who do that show, don't do not do it. This is this is like an Arcata, don't do it. It's three guys who were hoping to take a thousand dollars total off of the other two by winning the competition and somebody's gonna go like forty, six percent against the spread with thousands of dollars. I mean, that's what you got with this thing. So do not listen to it. We do not know what's going on. Even if I went on twenty game in a row streak. I still would say, I don't know what the fuck I'm doing. I look at these things and you know if I'm lucky, I'll go fifty five percent against the spread just just for the record. I don't even bet my own picks. I did that the under, though, on the was the first time I bet three digits, all one hundred dollars. I bet on the chiefs and patriots under and I didn't even get a sweat on. I love that one that much and I do it again. That's how dumb I am. I would do it again so there it is pick six is in the books. Ideally, somebody goes above five hundred this weekend to truly would be magical producer. Joe says to get your money in early on Manchester and Chelsea Manchester United and Chelsea and the half point a half goal. You get there and then you could build your Bank roll up from that. Maybe producer draw going. I'll submit that one right now to to be ready for the games. Enjoy Playa Del Harris. Mexican. I enjoy making up new Mexican. Playa del curly is next on the stop g unit. Thank you for coming in gangster Pete. Thank you for being on the ones and twos. Thank you to everybody for putting up with this podcast. I'm Tim occurred and thank you to our sponsors.

117 - KR GrandFinals and Most Wanted 2020

"And welcome back for another episode of the Black Watch reports I'm your host, Thorn Rain with me as always my co host Mister Kyle win are you doing this evening Sir Pretty good lost to talk about. I it's probably one of my favorite episodes do is the the most wanted list every year because it it's Kinda culmination of like. All of the previous season of following things and in looking at key players, interviewing players and kind of trying figure out who's WHO and. This is our opportunity to show that we've actually are paying attention and know who is good and no. Dot Good who's over hyped signing? Who is actually the real deal? So Although we have gotten. I think it's legit. Only one signing. On our list so far. So. We're still pretty ahead of this. You know the signing window just opened yesterday. And we've got some a couple moves that have happened for the most part things are still happening. was mentioning it yesterday before it's it's there's a lot of moving pieces right in other words a hundred plus open spots on teams right now there are. Probably, about one hundred and fifty, two, hundred, eligible talented quality. Players that could be. Signed for these spots. And there's twenty teams each trying to do their best to build the next championship for twenty, twenty, one and it's not easy. Some teams are starting quite far ahead like the shock and philly where they need like one or two pieces. Other teams are hitting the reset button like Toronto to find the Dallas fuel. Essentially. I'm excited to see what happens but. I mean it's it's a fun day ahead of us here what about you? What's What's what's new with you? As your has your day gone. Brown's one. Excited about that close one against the Bengals I was I was a little word. That was kind of worried. Me and the kid walks more pokemon cards absolutely failed on this new set. So. We decided to start playing overwatch grinding over watch a little bit earlier today. actually having some fun playing it which was. Unexpected Still. Laced silver I'm hot trash the game. That's what happens when you just gotta stack with a bunch of smurfs. Taqwa smurfs like a gentle level players. And then you'll get gold. That's yeah. I'll get to gold. But that's what happens when you play for like a week to get event skins and then don't play again for two and a half months. it'd be like sometimes you do but outside of that like not a whole lot going on just trying to watch for. Roster announcements like we've seen some. Like Released pros get picked up from other teams. We've seen trades and kind of stuff like that. But nothing really out of tier two yet the the one that we're gonNA talk about here in a little bit Let's write down in this news here we only got one bit of news our news brought to you by our patriots over Patriot Dot com slash by Koch reports. I have to become patron two dollars level. You can sponsor the news just like Mr. thuggery things so much. Sure. Tickets. Way. So the team formerly known as tier two Dan has undergone a bit of a rebranding after having some. Copyright troubles with the one only Mr Keane Star. Oh. Sorry. Yeah. An interesting change. Only one or two significant changes here One of them is you've got frilled AKA shape shifter Out at the main tank spot beasts halo was in. which I mean, he just got dropped from Toronto to fight US did the rest of everyone. So he's now a free agent Maybe just plain delight prove his relative relevancy maybe he just knows he's going back to contenders for a season And wants to kind of get a head, start no idea. But you've got beasts and cucumber on the EPS still you've got Sam Webb sugar free on the still retired emergency sub. Category here. You've got supports gene ultra-violet I. think that's pretty consistent. Important Note Heidrun speedily who I think we're also on the previous roster. To quote. Their second tweet are mazing. Maintain shape. Got To free plane tickets for speeding king hydro into China or A. So. They could not make this month of contenders. I assume that some sort of joke. I don't understand what it means, but it's funny It. was interesting new roster interesting to see beast coming back down so quickly. Probably didn't have a great look in. overwrought shake the season. So maybe if he's going to continue playing, maybe he does continue at the. Contenders level again. It definitely trying to keep up with tier to Dan tweet. Sir, like a in itself because. Half of them don't make any sense I was trying to search around to figure out exactly what that the China thing meant. No idea both of them are minors. So it's not like they're going to a Chinese team. Right but. Even in the the management section froze name is kind of left out. Of Steam. Team manager something. Like it's kind of awkward to see. Him Not tied to this at all I'm assuming he's tied to it in some way just not officially announced in any capacity use twitching valent switching T I don't know it's interesting to see. What we're GONNA write right down into this quick play where we're going to talk about the phenomenal absolute Banger of a grand finals. Over from Korea, contenders season to you got wgn Phoenix going up against run away and. This was like from start to finish. A great match. wgn Phoenix take this. For three, we went the distance. To, what are your thoughts here? It was almost reverse sweep and it kind of felt like it was to be essentially. Is just happened to map early you just switch maps around switching and body, and Havana becomes a great storyline. Was a weird one, the first two maps especially, it just felt like, Debbie just were lost. On the side of runaway, I changed the way I'm formatting notes and it just is so much better. Now, I'm going map by Matt. Leasing Tower here to one in favor run away on the back of some great tps play assassin was really on his a game. This match he's been. If if he's given the opportunity to to play Ganji and then also kind of tracer. he's just on it. I eat I think he's one of the Best Ganji players. In contenders right now I mean, maybe in all of the contenders regions And he really showed him and merit. Especially, we're really doing work picking off w support line here to win Lizheng Tower. Really. Just. Kind of started off a day for him. And then There was a moment on night market where Wgn Phoenix head the point had control the point. But the whole team was kind of like hunkering down in the market section across from the point. Like where all the little tables and stuff are it's it's a weird spot. You usually don't see a whole lot of stuff going on over there but like the whole team was over there. All of runaway takes the fight inside of their but meg on the ball just rolls and sits on the point steals the point away while the teams fighting, and then as wgn Phoenix is trying to rotate back, they ended up losing the team fight and runaway kind of steals the point that way there was a couple of those on. On night market specifically where it was like. WGN PHOENIX WASN'T PLAYING Like completely properly like they were taken. Already, lost fights extending amount using ultimate and kind of wasting stuff they ended up winning the fight, but they have to use everything and then runaways just able to walk back in and take it back from because runaway was playing a little bit smarter disengaging when needed runaway definitely looked. The king on. Unleashing Tower here. Yep and then moving on into temple of a new best is another kind of strong. Look for runaway here they took it to one so they will be able to cap out I, think with some amount of time remaining if not much and then we're able to. Know I. Think it was. W Jess on their attack. I wasn't able to cap out runway needed was a single tick. And one of the weirdest parts was that. I think w just had a little bit of work they needed to do on the first point. It wasn't a first fight take but then once they did take as tack gets to picks as they are walking into point b. But like a six V four essentially and like there was not overtime. A response yet I don't think they had the full time to wait. And they could not finish off the reinforcements and capital point out. They didn't even get a tech I think they just could not handle the reinforcements and it was just brutal to see because they had like a perfect opportunity. and. Then on their defense kind of the other. Major moment was they had both I think it was rally and transcendence popped the bag is on the wrecking ball. So obviously, he's playing a bit spread out, but then he dies on their defense even with both supporters being popped at the same time in a pretty chaotic fight. So I can't tell if that was misplayed from e bag a misplayed from the supports a miscommunication. I feel like it's the last of those You just wasn't aware but also. Yeah. It's just unfortunate that like you're maintaining the able to stay alive with literally infinite healing essentially. Really rough to say. And then Sorry I. I didn't realize we changed the notes and I actually Miss I actually missed a couple notes but the where my at Oh Four Wgn S.. Playing the wrecking ball seemed to be a big like detriment coming from Why am I forget his name? De. Z. Bag. He. Z. Bag has a tendency to play a little bit. Out of position when he's on the ball, he plays a little bit further up then. I mean you you're Kinda supposed to on the ball you're supposed to create space coming on crazy flanks. The only issue was his crazy flanks were like right on the edge of runaway and they were able to notice him in pick them off. A more specifically talking about how he died with two also. Had he been in a better position? He would have. Had A little bit of that support coming from his the the support Alz being used in that final fight. But he died like way off away from the team he bike round slammed. We saw a couple of times when he's playing the Winston just a little bit of an issue with him splitting off a little bit too far from the team I noticed but especially on this temple of newbies. Yeah it it was a bit weird to see. There's a couple of changes that we see come in. Enuma, Bonnie and. It gets them I mean they basically. Let's see starting off. They have a bit of an issue taking first and then a drawn out fight, and then they kinda just go again. As on the traitorous specially. Is. Really, on his game here, we know mostly as the Sambre player. We haven't seen as much tracer I, don't believe. But when he does play he's perfectly competent at it and really pops off here on their attack and then on the defense it's even bit more ridiculous. A note here as well with ace. Ace was able to pull out. Assassin. Out of a Dragon Blade Nando Dragon Blade like. Should have been able to capitalize on at least two kills with his dragon, blade ace gets the heck. Him and Valentine No it was the Moro who's playing the mortar attack tech. Aztec after the hat goes through just absolutely decimated him This was up above the point. down help down on the point where two members of runaway were and then just clear them out Ace's just phenomenal with those manual hacks especially in the face of an alternate Ganji to be able to pull it off and get away. And not only in Olten, Ganji. But like I, I wanted to go back and check to make sure this is what I'm thinking of. Their previous time they played this was against Talon top of their group. One Oh full held them on him Bonnie. And I remember specifically, this was where we saw assassin. Decimating all of talent especially making a chore. owns, life just. Fun. and. They just figured out how to nullify his effectiveness just hacked him emp him. He would just draw the blade the news watch. As he was stunned and they opt ultimate on the other side and just kept everyone alive just suck. Okay. Well. Here with a blade. Waiting, and it's gone like that end all he could literally do and then. Valentine as well on their attack. Plays the reaper I it was weird to see. But I think that's kind of the way the metalworks. Now you've got your kind of FLEX TPS player. picking up the reaper, and while you have your main hits game play like playing the father hits Dan Heroes I think actually put a lot samba reaper here. which is I think kind of a more Korean flavor than you in like Na contingent you contenders and. Something that just kind of noted I don't have down here in the notes but map one into we saw Valentine. One hundred percent on the echo. Not a whole lot of like. Real value coming out of his echo Nubani switches over to the reaper we see absolute ton of value. I'll talk a little bit more about Valentine's Echo a little bit later, but the beginning his echo wasn't looking to solid. Yeah, I, don't remember even being on that but I think he was the one player. I did not see in the feed just because it wasn't working out wasn't this was Nubani. The first map where w just caught up I mean it was a pretty big look for them a math the had previously gone one to run away against talent and then they instead three of them on the flip side. Get the full cap with time then fool hold. Super Impressive look from W.. Yes. But back in Havana. We see. Basically, the same thing happened just the other way. We see runaway cap at all the way I think with barely time remaining or an overtime I? Mean that's a tough map to complete. Then on the flip side. Just get full hilts. One of the things to note is. They, bring in phase. Phase is essentially like e-e-e-e-no. Casts. Where they will I we didn't see it much in previous Matches for runaway to bring in phase over MAG because Maga's MAG. But they brought him in to play the Hog. and it works out for them. He gets value especially because. He knows how to play in the smaller corridors around first and second usually mean. To Ham in here hey, come chasing come, chase me and then when they get in there. Will wheels in those well, he'll hit you with a rock and then another hook and then you're stuck in a room with two tanks and you're just kind of screwed they do really good Job of kind of Baiting in people to get eventually destroyed and then. Assassin on the Ganji as well. Really, went on a tear on their defense to pick off every one he was just back and forth specifically between. I out what it, what the call out is. But when you go up the first little road on the right hand side, the the buildings in the little dead end over there on. He was just around there destroying everyone on Wgn S. and including on the road hog, which is really as is not a fight you take as again very often strict farming blades. Awful. I everybody's. Fighting a half. He's got a blade so it yeah impressed and he'd like gets Blades he got was a four K. play like he does get value off of them despite all playing a road hog and. I think they know they didn't have a break that mercy that is a tricky fight to take. And he takes it and comes out on top a lot. Yeah, and then on their defense. This is the full hold. Didn't look like it was gonna be a four hold their like point zero six away from Getting a wgn Phoenix was But they couldn't kill Chai. And assassin. They were literally just dancing around on the payload long enough for response to start to come back in. As the response are coming back in their popping ultimate S- and. Securing kills. Literally. The only two people on the payload for a good. Say, forty five seconds while it was. It was like a five e to. And no one could kill these two they both fell like right towards. The end as the response were coming in to kind of take over the the point presence. Will by then it was too late. They had put enough damage. Old enough focus away that. Members of wgn Phoenix were starting to get picked off wgn Phoenix should have been able to take that point but runaway through just cheer determination and runaway magic were able to steal that away and get that full hold on. Havana. Moving into? Nepal. Is A to one in favor of Wgn S.. Weird thing for me that I noticed that they kept phasing-in on Nepal and I don't know Nepal as being a very. Big Mab map for the road hog. They played him on I think it was village and it worked. Okay. But they eventually had to switch and. I believe you had we all on the wrecking ball and. phase was playing the which was you've had a double off tank, and if you can't play the road hog gets kind of rough to see, it doesn't really work out well, especially if you need to take the Winston battle, it's just not gonNA work And part of that. Was the reason that they ended up losing this map they did take. I think it was shrine of super close but I think both sanctum and village. went the way of wd s which was kind of A. COP team issue of they just shot themselves foot. Yeah and over on the other side. Speaking of phase. Faith playing the BRIGITTA. Landed like. Three or four environmental kills one of them specifically coming off of a res- phase catches res-, and as soon as he's able to be targeted. Faith is just right there with a whip shot to throw them off the side of the map that was on shrimp line. And then he got I think to. On Sanctum with the whip shot. So faith just doing work on the Brigada making sure that he was shutting down phase at every possible spot he could whenever he saw him standing next to an edge. and. Then we get into I involved, which is another. This was a three one, quite a three Oh but a lot of these These paled match really were incredibly one-sided. This one was pretty one sided I should say. On the attack for Wgn S. they literally. Within the first, maybe five seconds of walking into like. The fight area. Again big pickoff onto merit. I don't know what specifically happened, but he got just picked early was not in a good spot. I got a bad spot. Valentine is on the ECHO. And kinda just. Works. He kind of gets into a flow of things. There's a lot of. highpoints end corridors places to play the ECO well All these teams are playing quite split on I second especially. and. That's a really good place for an echo ago And we just kind of saw him get a ton of value really until. They got through the doors in the castle and then he ended up switching to the reaper and was finally able to help them finish out the map, but on the flip side of that. All runaway dot was I think Just outside of the doors and then. They got held with some pretty big play. From a lot of the different members on Wgn S. so that was. Another pretty one sided map i. mean they'd almost got to be a three two. But? Yeah. Pretty brutal and this is where like. My initial note on Valentine's echo like early on when I was watching this was. While Valentine's on the Echo, we see them dropping maps and Not. Really getting any value and then I can wall hup happens and it's like, okay. I have to amend this note because now his echo is looking a whole lot better this matchup. and. Then we got into route sixty six. Yeah Andrew it went one L.. Right. Yes. Yes. The and it was not a they gotTA, they fool held, and then they just capped out where they full held. No is looking pretty grim w on their attack got full held. assassin on the tracer and made on the widow win a fight, which was pretty unwinnable looking from the outside. I think you really just had the two that I think Merica it's like two or three kills with two or three seconds. And, I think the caspers were like, what is HAPP- okay. Okay they the full help them before the doors on second. Making it a pretty clear wind condition. Bush. Yeah. But then on the flip side, you've got an even fuller holds off of some really big plays. Valentine on the ECHO. Again just great positioning lots of. High areas for him to play and especially high like high geometry. With corners that you can play around and then swoop in and. did kills and one of the things I did notice he was playing super aggressive when he had ultimate because. If he got chunked pretty low or was in a tough spot. Cool. I'm just going to copy the diva fly away or copy the Winston copy, the wrecking ball or whatever, and just kind of was able to get out and just live because he had essentially to more lives after that. Yeah like and A lot of the stuff that. Valentine was able to pull off on route sixty six. Exactly. It wasn't even with his ultimate. He was getting to win three kills in engagements, just playing the Stock Echo and then being able to just kind of buzz out but then you've got Kabul she. Just hitting crazy diva bomb angles not nothing big. There was no three ks no four KS just well placed into the backline to where he was able to pull off getting. A. Show. In. Why Am I. Chiro Chow Chow. Twice with the self-destructs on just perfect angles. Both on our? No. One on the attack one on the the defense. Just. Kabbal. She just doing. Crazy stuff with his his diva bombs just that. Right little touch. We saw it with Hok used to be able to do things like this. It was real nice to be able to see. And then what are the other big things we noticed as tech? Coming in on this map in particular in having some pretty big players I think he got like a to K. From the top of big girls with a the nice biotic nate. Getting some pickoffs doing his own a significant amount of work when the shields are down and there aren't shields when people aren't good spots, you can do a lot of work with the Anna landing key needs especially against roadlog when they had it but. that. Was a big part of it, and then you have a note with kind of an expanding on that. Yes. There is actually a moment on. there. attack. Where faith and Aztec were just making merits life absolutely. Unbearable. I think back to back you had the support of Wgn, Phoenix. Killing the. The widowmaker over on runaway because the tank line was too busy trying to maintain presence down on the point while if you've got a widowmaker, you know. Pop and heads. To ever can get up there. and faith in s tech both were able to. Kill. Merit or put enough pressure after the initial kills. To keep him kind of in check and prevent him from being able to hold down sight lines for very long. So just those bloodthirsty supports man making sure that the widow makers not doing their job properly on the other team. Yeah and then I think faith was on the brig on their defense and whipped shotted i. think it was the wrecking ball. Before. He could even get to point to Staal to start the start the overtime they didn't even hit the overtime. I think we saw seebeck have some big plays at the very end. gets a key pick off onto I. think it was revenge. knocks him off the side or gets quick pick with like twenty seconds fifteen seconds left. Just. Really Standard solid play here from A. To B just when it when it matters the most and so. Finally this was the only time I think we've seen in recent history where there's been a non. Elements tackle or a runaway victory here I think last year or last season was. Haute Oh to Kaoh one I think. Maybe. Yeah I guess it was last season. It was split up a lot o w just got one last season. About battle got one. This was a weird season. A little bit hard to tell. But yeah it. Actually right away didn't get. One that whole. Week that Four weeks, they didn't win a single one unlucky. Yep I didn't realize that Was Playoffs. Platform. To. Run away. That's what it was. Okay but yeah. It. Seems to no longer be I mean runaway will always be relevant as will elton sick. They're always be pretty relevant, but we're starting to see. Oh to have some good moments here and there stay competitive with those top teams w jess's now coming into their own as well. After getting knocked out and losers finals time. They. Have done it this this? Half Year and are the. Contenders winner. So hopefully, that gets them A. Recognition and I mean. This is a great time to win a tournament because get a lot of teams were looking to signs and players. and. Having on your resume. Yeah I know we're talking about. My contract just one contender. So on she put another zero on their body you know. Fifty on their just put. You know you can. You can use that to like. Elevate yourself worth a little bit if you're a contenders player so. Solving into this. Yeah I guess that's a good segue into what comes next. Yeah. We're GONNA roll down into the main discussion. Twenty twenty s most wanted. With free agency opening up and US getting ready to start looking at the twenty twenty one season that means that teams are going to be signing new players hopefully coming from the contenders. Regions. Not just resigning all of their buddies who are already in the Overwatch League got dropped. Let's let's see some new blood and we're GONNA talk about a little bit of that new blood here. After two off seasons of seeing the same players who have not looked good get resigned over to to tell I think that some people are starting to realize. Maybe. There is some value in some of these contenders players because they are. More unknown quantities, they are more risks as opposed to the I. Just Know How good this player is. And if you know that they're not performing well, why not take a chance on a new player that has had some good looks and you can see some potential they're young. They can be molded into superstar players if they if they have the right coaching and training and have the motivations. They can do well and one of those players. that. Is. One of ill that like high potential for performance like they can be a top-level main tank in the right circumstances. IS MAG so we're starting off with the primarily Korean speaking players we split them up like we did last year into. A. Korean speaking and then English slash bilingual players There's only one I think truly bilingual player we have on that list. And there were starting off with the maintain section near with MEG and. I think he was probably the top main tank prospect in any region at all I think like even more. So than the couple of guys in Europe, we have not really a ton of. In. At the moment, like we have one that will mention kind of our continuous like please pick the skype. He's really good like beyond that dude, like there's not been any one player that has really stood out like magazine Korea which can stand out in Korea while playing against these other main tanks of this level. You're pretty good. Probably deserve a look at, and that's exactly what he got on. This is so far the only player that we have announced that we know of that Is On our list that has been called up and he got sent to the Washington justice to play along decay. I think it's only the two of them. Right now. Baleno in announced. Let. Me Check just in be sure. It still says they have. Jenny stitching God Tuban Ark but I don't think they have officially left but I think their contracts may be expert but it seems like they're starting a specially with MAG and decay which I think is a great. Baseline to start with. Yeah there's no reason why. The justice shouldn't be considered. Basically, the winners of. The Tier Two free agency they've got basically what everybody would if we had a draft? Meg would have been the number one draft pick basically and Washington justice was able to lock that up. I wish we could get a draft it would make things so interesting. It'd be super interesting to see. Could become in the future and I would love to see it done the same way where they come up, get their little hat and everything out. Great. Just like a regular draft it'd be phenomenal. And I. Guess if we're keeping with the draft terminology here, the next who were like. Second Round pick up. So you've got like MAG which is like A. First Round I five kind of thing like. I wouldn't say like a ron per se but like Like a Janas, maybe for the one who's Like he's like. A pretty big player like he pick him I five. Possible. Is Is. Like a good like build like I said like you've got. unexperienced. Caliber player and decay, and you pick like a new also essentially an MVP caliber player within his own realm of MAG but you've got Yuk Peng Z. Bag kind of rounding out our main tank list here. Both of them are definitively not as good. At least from what we have seen thus far but Opportunity for. Players who? Might just need a different team environment to succeed. Yuk Peng has played. Last season and looked pretty good but trying to find it was like the most forgettable team a flashier. After having like one guy like a week and a half of good matches, they kinda just were. In the nowhere not so bad they deserved. acknowledgement but not good enough to deserve acknowledgement as well and so after they decided to move away from the Korean roster, he went down to blast had some good performances. They got pretty far far. Did they get this? they were in. Playoffs weren't they? Yeah. They got knocked out by runaway Oh to blast. They got knocked out by runaway. They went to two in the groups they pretty good. He's a decent player. Like. I said not like a world beater but like Give them a trial for sure like you definitely is deserving of trout and if he shows out well and trout's if he's got a good A locker room mentality is hopeful teammate and got over the experience. He you know. What he can do definitely deserves a shot same as the bag is a little bit more of a risk like. We've seen him. kind of split time in a couple of more recent matches. With casts who would specialize with with the road roadlog. Played a lot of Winston. Played, some wrecking ball. Not like a notorious feeder. But. Psych slight overextending issues. That's what what I would have to say about him just. Plays a little out of position. An aggressive maintained is fine. You just have to make sure that you have the support line that's willing to put their life on the line for that aggressive play style. You're going to you're going to need a lot of support for Z. bag to work out here. I think you can get. You can kind of get a spot and beyond like a you know. Bottom twelve tests. Sixteen team may be like he's probably not going to be a top four like he's not a top four player I don't neither of these two, our top four players. So they're probably going to be like if they make it on a team that's not going to be a shock or Philly or whatever It's GONNA be. Houston or Think Dallas. Dallas. Would go that. Like low quote unquote to pick up one of these two I think they'll probably. But moving into off tanks we've got a couple of good options. We've got like Kinda another similar like. A first? First five or six picks if we're doing a draft. Engage. Fantastic diva play great sigma plays well. I think we saw them play some road hog here and there as well and had good looks on their. Really a well rounded off tank player. If. Justice aren't going for John New again and maybe he's no longer. As good. As he was last year even though he was good last year maybe there's some issues that happened I. Don't know maybe they just needed time maybe they keep them whatever if they don't keep him I think. If they pick up gamble. Gamble C and MAG as your tank line with decay like the you're a contender now. You're like in the conversation for being like a a team that might push into that top echelon. My next to our to we've talked about a lot recently, it's the both support a sport but objects for runaway in. We'll y'all and phase will yell has Overwatch League. Experiencing plus. was on the roster I think did he finish with them? I don't remember if we. Actually New York. No London. I can't remember. No. One. Got Traded. PROUDER that. We find out that was an interesting. Did he will. He's typically win You've got moved to an active and then went to exile to academy. To. moved to an active and they won on. Some, twenty eight was the on the roster seven, twenty eight. No US Onto Academy. Oh it's GonNa. Yeah but so. Texted me not I will champion. But still pretty good. He's had good looks now and we've seen. Phase get brought in as well. Especially playing the Road Hawk and as we mentioned today that some good looks. Yeah I think phase works out for a team. That's if we're still looking at when the new season rolls around where you need somebody to play that hog specific role Phases a great pickup he can. Be that that map pick player that you pull in on the tank role. If the rumors are true. There might be a team that would be needing a Potentially Korean road hog main because. who usually plays the road hog for the shock? To per. Okay but. Is what you're going for. Shock sign phase just as that that that to plug plug in if you're going to get the number one road hog out of cream contenders, you're looking at phase. Gas. But I think phase edges of just a little bit as I if you're gonNA. Unless This is my argument. If super retires super is not on shock he is a fulltime streamer and I don't think that's happening yet. He's legit twenty? Got Lots of time. To become a washed up. Former sports player in open. Bar. And do commercials for local car dealerships. The new lot of time left the dude is still like he's I don't think he leaves I think that's spot is still. Occupied Auto I don't think phase has an opportunity on a top level team. I think phasing casts both on the same kind of unfortunate iceberg. Of just having to kind of. Depends on the Meta. And roadlog is. NERF and like very, and they are like no one on the current patches playing road. Hug at all. At least. Wants to not throw for their team but like. I I think these couple players who were like specialists for the road hog to replace the main tank on the road hog maps. It was incredibly valuable to their team but not to themselves and so I think it's GonNa hurt phase and I think it's GonNa hurt Ainhoa casts. In this draft season. because. You did really well on a hero that you're not going to be playing anymore. What is that worth? It's hard to tell. This next bit. To Our BANGERS DUDE FLEX TPS, we've got Valentine and assassin aging in in I. Think. Season starts. January and February twenty, one season doesn't start till April. So you've got time to. Sign them get them up to speed everything you need to do. even after their eighteen, you don't have to worry about any sort of issues you've got plenty of time for Valentine, an assassin both incredibly Saad players, very different heroes Ballantyne. I think his Fara is great. When we saw it on some maps go is echo has been I mean obviously it's sometimes down in some places but like a lot of time, it can swing maps in its favor. Great Tracer when they need to run it with like a hit scan specialist like a sniper roll like these playing with I and thirty-seven, you keep him in. Also, in the reaper when needed. So there was a lot of here's get can run like a pretty competent level. Yeah. I was just going to say basically what you said about his echo like one his. ECHO. is off like you said, you didn't even know he was playing the echo because he was never there. But when he when his echoes on I would put his echo comparable to his tracer, the only issue is. It's hit or miss. You don't know exactly Mac to map which echo you're going to get out of Valentine. Huge problem because he has the fallback of the tracer, the reaper and the Faira that are all phenomenal basically consistently. So Valentine Whoever Valentine signs with they are getting an absolute banger of Affleck's GPS here. And with. A lot of I think most teams don't have. Great, Kenji. Minus. It's hard to tell. It's unknown whether or not Ganji will come back in the Meta as well. That's the issue. If, you need one like I think. I think if you're shock and you just let go of Rascal and you may be moved to a different role because I not again you player, we know him as a hits Gant Blair. I think if you just WanNa bring in a guy and maybe give them like A. I don't think he's going to be incredibly well sought after, but I think he's going to be fun nominal specialists if you can swing it. I think you bring him in. At the flex spot get him. Some experience with the team. I think if when you have like an opportunity for Ganji metal shop burned with again, she meta Africa which tournament it was, but they just had to play super on the. Had Super. It was fine. He was not feeding his brains out but also like dude, imagine if you have the performance that assassin had. In really their grand finals and semifinals matchups dude. Top Level Player I. Think like what comes the Kenji could bring out the tracer to a good not even competent but like good, he was good on the tracer, he can land big pulse bombs We've really only seen them on these two. I would like to see more of him, but you probably need to go down to the. To the old film room and I doubt some older tapes to find out. What is performance is like on the Non Ganji non tracers. For those two. Pretty. Good. Yes, that's my only fear for assassin. Is He kind of has that? Ball and chain hook him. Kind of like phase has where if. You're not really in Ganji or a tracer. Meta. What are you gonNA play them on like he's he. Eventually, who are you? Think. Like he was incredible at those two but leg, they bring who are you onto other team and then we get terrible Meta's forum like. Assassin. Is Very Meta dependent and actually like I won't even fully say that because. He. Was essentially the only person that was running the Ganji with success when we were watching these games. So was it like at the medicine? It's not again met right now he was he was forcing the Kenji. But I, think pulling up into the Overwatch League. You'RE GONNA have a lot harder time forcing the Ganji when you're running very specific meadows. So assassins going to be another one of those niche picks that We might see he deserves it one hundred percent. I'd that's just my biggest fear for him. Is that the Meta's won't suit them and teams will be kind of afraid to spend the money on that I think yeah. I. Think if you have a big money team like a shock or a Philly or whatever. I think you bring them in like. Philly get rid of Ivy I. Don't know where he is I don't know if they've kept him or not. But like if for some reason, they get rid of him. You just have options instead. I can see it Philly Ivy expiring. So yeah. Like that spot is open and. Going onto a team like failure show, I would say like, Philly or shock are both great options. For him because both these are top level teams you're playing top level players, but you are not expected to bear fifty percent of the GPS. Load. All right now hear me out. Like ten percent what if you paired him with the? New La- Washington justice. Behind magnetics. To, decay. We pay can run both again gene the tracer, but I think we're seeing more success with him in the hit scan roles on the widow and a widower. Agree. I think that would be a good look If he wants to to go there and wants to play with his teammate of Megan I'm hoping may we'll look good form I could see it but I still think you need to pick like a dps up and I think you pick him up as A. Like No. We've got two guys yet. They better be good at everything. He's definitely got to be in a rotation. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. Speaking of rotation one player we have seen. This is a new sub role we've seen in the recent like eight months is the. Sniper specialists not just a hits can specialist but like a sniper specialist, we see with aunts. I can't even think about who seen we've seen from. I'm thirty seven he's an expert he's top on her skin list. Again another kind of role player of like you don't bring him in to play. The tracer and the reaper and that you bring them in to play the widow. Ash. Maybe Hongo. Like bring him in on those maps. Vanna One's. A new town. A new best possibly. Yes there's a lot of good options for him. I think like if you're looking to see DPS be the more flexible roles here in that, you can always bring up three or four players at a time and have a good rotations. I think he's a player you pick up. Definitely. Eight X. One. Great kind of on the flip side of that has never played snipers too much. I guess he played the Honda but sambre like He. Is the season's decay or not to Doha in that like, oh, he's a phenomenal somber player maybe not even playing somber, but like we've actually played the tracer, the Hanso. Can play. Says he played is Maybe he played a little bit of here and there but not really especially I? Think he's another good like. Turning to remember if we saw him on. Because we sell soldier very limited. But Yeah I can't remember who was on the soldier. Ace Ms Probably Merit I. Think which I guess is our next talk about. Merit, who's a bit more of a I mean, I really liked the wgn PHOENIX DPS rotation I thought was perfect the way that they found the right maps right opportunities right play styles to play with it and had really good rotations to Fit the style perfectly. But on the side of runway, you had merit and assassin, you're only to gps they played everything. We, know murderer like A. Really an aspect lists like he played that a lot and did well with it and he had phenomenal zoning Bob's like not even Bob for like super value literally just shutting down a choke point. Pushing people off of payload Saw Him. A four K. in like half a second on Nepal Saint Him in the finals. This was one particular I'm like, wow, that was fast. It was acre. Sure how the players ended up where they ended up but they were knocked up I don't I'm not sure if it was from. Who was running the ball? We wouldn't have been phase. It would have been Wayel egg maybe. The, the four players got knocked up and he threw the Bob Underneath of them, and then Bob just shredded them like it was crazy. So he can get the big play. babs he he gets zoning Bob's. And then we see him on the widow and he's very capable on the widow. Locking down sight lines holding angles just completely. Tearing up the back line of teams. If you're looking for probably comparible I'd Say I am thirty, seven and merit are probably right there on the same level of the cyber specialist I am thirty seven might take a little bit more on the The widow in the Honda because I. Don't think we've seen merit on the Honda too much. Now. But. Meretz ash is phenomenal compared. I am thirty sevens. Yeah and then to kind of kick it up a little bit stellar was a big tracer player. We've seen him do pretty well recently but. There were issues in the passive him Kinda just retiring, and then coming back and playing. Boston and that didn't work. BACK DOWN TO DENVER, so. Again. Another player like deserves a trout. But like I don't think is going to be like a world beater don't think he's like a top level DPS prospect. He's just like give him a look if you're looking for something like that. Flex supports was a little tougher I think as sack was pretty good. soon as pretty good as well. I think who's been playing for. Talent. I know we watched them into the playoffs. His. Zen. especially, really good I made a note of. Gets good kills and also good ole usage mind. but then we see a lot as we watched so many WCBS games as past A. Three or four weeks. So were little recently by on him he's pretty solid. And then kind of the last big one on this flex support list is MTV. Played previously with the Gauntlet winning L. at mystic roster. Could go with the new L. AT MR roster. To Dallas with em, to penelas dubbing it. But. In all honesty that's where I would love to see him go. Yeah I think that'll be super interested in and Yet, I think we probably should save the English for. Week we're getting close to time here but. I think you also do have repel, and Jek say also free agents as well which. Could also go to dowse super, and then in that case you have literally. Mystic I. Land with a new better main tank and. A different. It's gained EPS as much as it pains me and deathblow will throw terrible towels at me. If they've get any more of the. Og Element mystic roster. Fuel Fan. Like I want to see. More so because I wanna see the Doha and sparkle. DPS Do just do phenomenal because. The year that we picked them to what last year when we were doing this and we talked both of them up. Everything like Doha got put into a bad situation but he still looked good on Dallas. Looks good and. He was not a good player. And then sparkle. I I don't think he deserves to be a role, START US role. So like he's a good player and he was I mean. Perceived by a lot of people to be a phenomenal. DPS By to have a lot of time to really he came in. So late team but now. Those two who know exactly how to play together are going to be next to each other. Again, we've seen them to where they literally switched heroes where. sparkles playing the Fara phenomenally while. On the Sambre will then. Sparkle needs to go on doom fist Doha plays the Fara and they absolutely do work together. They're interchangeable the two of them but they nist game which kind of where this Dallas fuel team is going to be nasty if they locked down a good hit skin for a good DP. Rotation I like Dallas fuel this year. Yeah, I was talking to someone yesterday dowse could either be. A top three team, top four team or a coach expensive mistake coached into the bottom three like I won't even say coached because I trust the coach GM D- Yes. If you can't make that work could be no Bueno the. Main support is a weird spot as well. One thing I wanted to note. Before, we get into this. Ellen mystic has two players in their entire starting roster eligible to play. He's saying choice one just like I. Think they're all too young. Kellyn attack both too young as well. NCD ENDS SHARE THE ONLY Eligible people for elementary just by being a really good team and have a good looks like they're the only ones eligible. So that's kind of rough. But on the main support list, we've got an soon, jay faith and Nikko. None of these I think are like. Pop level round one pickups in less a team does like trout Oh my God this guy's amazing. Like. So I think there were. Sturdy so in March daughter. After. Oh my why why was this guy playing on a nobody team like this guy's incredible. I don't think we have any of those on this list so far. But that's not something. We can never really see because a lot of what they do is in communication and team coordination and support. In that aspect. But and soon, Jay and faith especially I think are particularly skilled players. We've seen a lot of mercy for answering well I. Think he was kind of pushed to play that a lot and look really good on the audit like. The Way I view of mercy is see him getting picked a bunch you're probably not good otherwise like They're doing a fine job like there's a bunch of really hard to spot my new show with it but like if. You have good positioning and nowhere to go. You're doing cool like you're doing. Good. And then faith we saw of Lucio. For. WG, S. alongside as. Had some not great looks but a lot of more positive looks I think yeah he's able to run the the brig in the broadcom's. I don't think we saw in Soon Jay run the brig too much I saw the white a bit out of faith. Bounce between Lucio and the Brig. Just eat when you're talking main supports it's like Dialogue No. Okay. Did the players around them not die. No cool. They're good like there's there's real if I've really hard to. Like in the calms, coach says specifically looking, this is another thing like. If, I was tasked with finding a main support I could. Probably find one because they're not hyper focused on. To do pinball like just. The way that we're watching this is like, okay, who's poking out as a good player? On, the because we're looking at literally every single player for every single role. And we spent like a forty forty minutes or so talking about. Maybe, thirty minutes just talking about just the Korean speaking players and we got. Three to four and east lists so much we can come and. One last note player here to look at his neck. Oh, who was previously I, Dunno season WanNA. Maybe top five top six flex support. Played on Boston was really just stellar performer. Got Replaced by Ayn God's. To opt to the main support roster once he went down two Oh, two I think he played flexiport will for like a season or two in the decided to make the switch to main support which was An interesting call. Because he was such a skilled. Flex player but. Adapted well, and has shown to be pretty solid with I. Think. Oh to. Has odeal real experience I. Think would be a solid pickup as well. If you're looking for more expense player but I don't think either any of these three are like really a. Top level I mean but to be fair like most of the top level teams don't need a you play right now. In less your Dallas Mystic need A. decided not go for Jek say example. But I think for tonight that's going to wrap us up because we're already at just a little bit over an hour. And then we have. All of the English side to go through still So we'd probably be here for like another half hour forty, five minutes. But that just means as more content for next week. There are two things that I want to go over really quick before we close up the show. We have one of the two teams that is going to be securing a trial spot coming out of the. Trial of champions and that is. An TICO. Have made it to the grand finals they're going to be going up against either a Delta Phoenix or our zero. I believe this coming weekend Let me see. Tour Twenty Fifth Oh no it's actually going to be going on right now, the lower bracket finals are happening in the upper bracket or the grand finals will be happening shortly after that and then over in EU. We're still a ways away for you. We got. We got while Oh no. Well we got an a and E. U. I think both starting in three days and I think we just had the seating tournament soon. So I think we might actually have this. This week was a career week. Re talked about career grand finals and players pick up maybe next week we do Na Talk and. Any pick up. So it'll be a very themes day and I looked at this wrong Yep easy has secured a spot in the the. Finals it looks like let me double check Yep. Yep Easy is in the grand finals Those two teams looked to have secured their trial spot. Just waiting on one more out of this new format. which is super cool. I know that tomorrow night, we get the the seating show. Four and a and e you got the notification from the Ol- Youtube. Saying that there was a premier tomorrow night. So we are getting pretty close to trials for a any you and then we will be getting contenders that following week. So we will be covering that here very shortly. Seating show is tomorrow at three. P S T six Ese. So that probably means we'll get matches either Tuesday or Wednesday running. Gwen did. Start on the twenty eighth. So that's Wednesday Wednesday on. Ziad. 'cause might. Might have to do that. Night pushback for the next year might do Monday next week. just because. Contenders like change their dates on us. It's a thing but. That is a show. So Kyle working, they find you on the Internet. You can find me basically twitter still. At Kyle a winter talking about overwatch stuff and anytime I'm guessing on a podcast which Yeah. You got an announcement for US podcast this week Yes, we are. When I don't know if we're doing. And then streaming it we're recording on Thursday. At three might time six year time We're doing a guest fantasy pick. Like fantasy, talk. PODCAST was de Hokey who I think is one of the editors like works as a contributor rinker for draft buff on their side. So I do believe so. That'll be interesting I think in a couple of leagues with him. I think I smash a couple games before I stopped playing fantasy. To be fared fantasy. This year was all kinds of Jack because of Cova like Oh man brutal, I? Think. We're playing for like four weeks or something. Yeah. Rats my gps line there's nothing I can really do right now I don't want to let go of prophets. But here we go. Yes, alike, that'll be super duper fun. I'll try to get a retreat on that when we do get posted but we'll be talking more like. kind of similar stuff to what we were talking about this week like big players to take a look at But more. So that fits into the fantasy realm, which is interesting and then I was on podcast. Again, last night talk about more generic video game stuff.

Game Scoop Episode 578

"What's up? Everybody welcomes is you. Give them your statement. Hatfield joining me this week is Justin Davis Scoop Claiborne. I'm realizing that I wanted to like pop out of the ground. This next week next should have popped out of the arcade machine bind you and coming to us all the way from the great state of Maine. Seth macy hello there. That was a good turn a good turn swoop. Tina sorry she can be here today. She wanted to let you know. She had a hard out so hard she had about before. The show even started as artist yet. Yup It's as hard as they come but hopefully she'll should be able to be back in her seat next week. We've got a great show for you this week. We're talking about cyber cyber junk. We're GONNA cover that. Oh Yeah we've got to cover that we'll talk a little bit about going to talk about some new milestones than the switch just passed but I hopefully. Everybody caught that inside. Xbox a presentation this morning hit me with some impressions. They should a bunch of third party games and a lot of new stuff. Was it enough to get people excited about xbox series x okay well first of all you want to get our reactions and then you load with that question about it. Was THAT ENOUGH TO GET. Us excited for series X. There's a lot of things to get excited about for series. I don't think a showcase of third party games is really pushing the needle on that but I liked it. I like this to your positive reaction. No complaints well. My complaint was that they got the calling things game play and then showing something that was not at all it was. It'd be like an interview or like you know a graphical demonstration or like cinematic trailer as well. Why did they go out of their way to call his game? Play gave a play specially for again. They revealed last week. And then they didn't show gameplay or you'd recognize if we wrote about it in is Yannis game. Yeah we're talking about assassin's creed Valhalla. This was billed as a big game player review. But then that doesn't look like game played. Anybody they call it an engine but I don't think I don't think most people know what that means and I think when people see player reveal they expect to see what the game's going to look like when they're playing it I waste. We set that expectation for the world. I think I just think people. Apparently we are in a position where you can get away with calling things gameplay whether or not whether you change the camera or do other things as the ball shot equivalent. It's very strange. Yeah I always like those moments where you think. Something is a cut scene but it. Oh it was actually game play the whole time with watchdogs. Taylor did that several years ago out. That was probably being faked so I was weirded out to learn that the super bowl. Winning quarterback is younger than Madden football. Yeah he's like he said just like Madden has been around longer than me and now Mike to say that no is a Kansas city hometown. Hero is that Nintendo has been around for longer than any living human. That's true but we know that we know of probably vampires or maybe really cool aliens also true probably also the tortoise older than Intendo Nintendo adding maybe like a tree or a parent or something to this. There's a there's a tortoise older than America maybe countering seen in Cannibal Holocaust. I've never seen can't it's not a cannibal it's not cannibalism unless the turtles eating and other turtle right okay or a to find out. I typed tortoise older than and America's the first auto complete Nice Justin. That's gotTa be right. This tortoise is older than the United States. But the talk. It's got him so as of two thousand twelve. This is a mental floss article from two thousand twelve. This turtle tortoise live still is still alive. I don't know I hope it. Is I choose to believe this tortoise is still alive but let's get back to inside Xbox Seth what was your takeaway? You not overwhelmed. I was I was just kind of well on a very well on a steady plane of existence. I mean a did nothing to Stoke Mike Excitement for xbox series x not to say that. I'm not excited. I'm very excited for both the xbox and the playstation coming your You know it wasn't like a stand up like oh man and texting everybody I know. Did you see that more of a? It's Nice I think. They showed games that I'm interested in there. Probably some of those are probably good game. Statistically but they didn't show them in a great way even for games that I could tell will be pretty cool. There is the one at also look up the name of it because I'm been working on this route twelve hours now but it was the one that was space shooter. Yeah etta veto you chorus right towards so yeah Charles. Charms look like A. It's like a it's like an x wing tie fighters space shooter like. That's what we know about that game. I love that type of game but like in that in that lineup of things it didn't like pop out like my favorite thing but it might be might be a really cool then. I also think you know. They weren't AAA Games they. Were you know of AA Games In many instances with the exception of assassin's creed and so you know xbox series X. Games you're seeing these series X. Games but then they're not you know they didn't look next Gen and that sounds like a knock like I think a lot of them look really fun. I think the twins shooter you know looks really fun. Greek Games. But they're not a showcase for next Gen. And so in that sense you know the stream ended now sorta like. Oh yeah it. The bright memory infinite. That was like it looked. That was the most restarting out. It was like Oh. That's a cool next. Gen Game has really cool particle facts and whatever and then they're like and it's made by one person as a whole that yourselves. He's now disappoint. I'm not impressed. I'm disappointed I'm like oh it's a fifteen minute game. No there is no three older. Is I in summer of gaming. Still going to be big game reveals in June. But it's clear that this is like an appetizer right. This is not the main event from I. Guess off like they have some really neat gains some cool partnerships and they wanted to show them off but they kind of wanted to get them out of the main thrust of the announcements happening in June like. That's my take away from. This is like they look really cool. But there's a reason why these went. I like this is not the big stuff. Yeah yeah they want to keep us thinking about xbox one x like From here until release. I don't know I think that's about it. We're talking about playstation five. I don't think you you mean series x what did I say next? But that's okay. I meant one X. Plus one hey I also like I think everybody wants to see more assassins created there is almost like a one two punch their setting up whereas like oh you got to see the big. Us off reveal the way. Tc game play like that's really crappy to not show fifteen minutes of game player. I the me in player whatever. Yeah to if they had actually showed a proper gameplay reveal of that I would have walked much much happier made for you. Know any sort of lacking Third Party lineup. I don't understand that how they messed that up so badly. We're about the time of year that they would have shown a big game reveal at e three anyway or they walk you through a whole mission. Yes you off the new gameplay features you're working on like I don't understand how they couldn't have that ready now games coming out. It feels like a missing like the game. Reveal you know like the Viking theme had already been leaked so I actually like the you know the painting the was Abbass logic painting of revealing the logo and the key art. I thought that was really clever to just get that out of the way and then they had the trailer the next day and then game play the following week but then that that like right at the end there they didn't quite deliver like the one two three punch. Yeah and then I am not like you know. I don't play Games. I don't don't pretend to but this would be a good time to show what next madden game? Looks like just just so we get a little bit of next? Gen a feel you know. And they couldn't even pull that off you know. I was completely expecting them. You know they instead. They just showed every other mad they should have ever married. No new man. Well that was a little odd. What about smart delivery this this feature that allows you to buy game once San Xbox one and then you can you'll have it on series X. When you're a upgrade do you think that's GONNA be deal? Yeah I think so but I also think it's going to be confusing to a lot of people because even in our chat people like what smart delivery again. 'cause they would show the logo that this is a smart delivery game or as we say here may delivery and it was. Why don't they just call it? Something that people like four compatibility or all platform. Just make it clear like. I don't know why I knew neither of those words have any meaning that it's an odd brand like you know. Play anywhere gets already thing but like you know you get my point Yeah I think it's great. I think I think com- next consuls can sometimes be a little bit hard to find at launch and like who knows his uncertainty this year. Maybe they're going to be in even shorter supply so maybe it'll get people over the hump and convince them to well just by the xbox version then when I get a console next year you know. They're they're on rails in the xbox ecosystem And I also think like you know that a very busy take on it like it's such good news for consumers like it's just such a forward step for the industry did not treat. Those two games is like separate games just by on the xbox platform once scrape through said it could also be a little confusing that not every game supports it right because there was like some caveats like it's not really upgraded you have to. I can't remember it by Madden before December thirty first. It's greatest curious next before March thirty first next year. This is like well a win in the case of Madden. It's because that game will be three dollars at game stop by last March so pass game by like March. I don't know how it works like when you buy the xbox one version does it come with a code for the series expiration or do you just put the disk in your series accident knows. Yeah I said the save works. That's part it is that the saves transfer I presume either go to the xbox store and you re download it or you put in the disk and reinstalled. Yeah just what's the people from hand someone Else Count Account Okay? Yeah that makes all right. Let's move on from forthcoming next integration games to a courage in game. That's still on the way cyberpunk twenty seventy seven. Must Everyone's surprise it's going to be rated M for mature no We talked a lot about this week. For the Australian classification boards rating came up of a adults only eighteen plus and then of course rated it An furniture and I've got the description here. The description of the mature content in the game. And there's one detail in here that's proven to be very interesting Goleta. Sarita it off. This is the first person. Rpg shooter in which players assume the role of a mercenary named V trying to make their way through the open world of night city. Players can explore futuristic locations interact with citizens perform missions and engage in combat to complete various objectives within a storyline use handguns machine guns rifles and explosives during frenetic firefights with humans and cybernetic enhanced enemies. Players can also use melee weapons to stab enemies and in some cases dismember them. Combat is frenetic with gunfire cries of pain explosions and blood splatter effects some locations mutilated corpses with open chest cavities or expose organs and entrails during one class players assistant character by rejected going to spoil anything. Screaming sounds and blood affects accompanied. The seem the game contains nudity and sexual material players can select a gender and customize their character customization can include Genitalia as well as various sizes and combinations of genitals and. That's the part that's proved very interesting to a lot of people finally player players can drive cars while drunk. That's actually that's that's an interesting. And the generals made the headlines Lagging and calling out like driving while impaired is interesting wonder if Gao is had to do that. Yeah I wonder about that you the think thing. That's so weird. Do I have a question? I'm not asking like a flippant pure Iowa. I'm genuinely curious. Didn't do breasts like breasts genitals. Does that count? I wondered the same thing and I think genitals inherently means the things that you make to pass on your genetic code got no maybe that it's a first then for the genital customisation. Because that was going to be what I was going to say. It's like we'll size. You've been able to customize that and lots of games but maybe not the below the waist stuff. Yeah those are starting with. Bmx XXX right. Definitely interesting We did a news story on that yesterday and it was. Let's it was wildly popular. Yeah I mean this game is about like you know that Kinda cyberpunk setting that it has is all about like cutting up bodies and putting them back together. I think they're going to give you every option possible for that and I think that's absolutely the seam than cyberpunk is always been. There's nothing to do with today's values or anything like that. It's just like cyber punk. It also bears stating this. It's unusual for game. That's first person you'd be giving this much customization when you're not really going to be able to see a lot of it right. Is that disappointing? I mean maybe who knows maybe dialogue options. Yes I mean I just I just really want to impress. Kiana reeves really want him to like me. I always like it when we get these ratings. Subscriptions that we're GONNA play a new game. Forget what we've called it in the past right. Now I'm thinking about calling real mature video games gave. This is where I'm going to read. I'm GonNa read off the descriptive mature contents in a recent game and see the. I guess it's all right here. We go who got real mature video games? This is a game that was recently released so also the way the description works is it starts out with a very broad overview a game so if I if I read that out it'd be pretty obvious what this is so I actually reversing it. I'm starting with the minutia of mature content in the game. And we're walking backwards to sort of the broad description of some if you guys can pick up a game. Mrs One mission prompts players to locate packages of drugs in a compound and to eventually burn them. I'll go go on so many games. Some scenes depict skinned corpses with exposed buttocks. Who Hold on is is the bucks exposed because they're skinned extra lurid for somebody why skinned corpses as the rejected players can perform execution style. Finishing moves on soldiers the victims skulls and spines get ripped from their bodies is at dum dum eternal. No the redacted can use blades laser weapons to decapitate enemies is a fighting game not fighting. No okay some explosive weapons. 'cause bodies to burst into chunks of flesh and limbs players use pistols machines chain guns and explosives to enemies in frenetic firefights. What's up with the frenetic firefights? A second time you've read that that's not like that frantic there. Can you contain frenetic firefights? Okay there's dismemberment right but how frenetic? It just had a chill dismemberment case. That's that's teats. Plus young most missions involve infiltrating areas like camps jungle outposts villages in order to obtain until or destroy targets. I mean there's just sounds like a far cry game but how can it be 'cause there's has been wanting to while there's just causes and finally this first or third person shooter in which players engage in combat missions as either mercenary soldier or rejected. I don't think this is obvious as you think it is through the skinned corpses laser. Weapons LANES ARE STAR. Wars jet jet iphone order. Seth got it ready to hunting grounds. Yes I think. I have the same question with this other skinning a Lotta people in that game trees yeah the buttocks frenetic in okay. I have a more this. This game is being released this month. It's not out yet. But it's out this month and it's one you all have heard of players can walk through on Erotic Club. Containing several phallic sex toys mannered characters are occasionally depicted nude though their nipples and Genitalia or obscured by blue pixels. They separated implement Genitalia. Got Our answer damage. From certain guns can result in decapitation players can also use chainsaws to hack it enemies resulting in small chunks of flesh. Large spiders of blood is yours tactics now. That one's out already and I don't think there's much nudity in gears tactics. One seen play some faraway. Can't everybody's skinned anyway. One scene prompts players to run over a certain number of pedestrians within a given time another sequence allows players to dispatch enemies by putting grenades in their mouths. See when you when you when you break games down to the bull dude sound crazy. Yeah they all have nukem. It makes me think man our parents in the nineties. We're right yeah. This is what my parents taught. Games were in nineteen eighty chunks of flesh being pulled off a chain saws another see prenatal mouth ready to three has that has that three doesn't have it. Players can attack pedestrians and in one mission players shoot police and civilians to create chaos and a rival gangs territory. Is this the saints? Row Remake Saints Third remastered. Okay because it just sounded like everything in there was. Gte thing right so they can get around like what's coming up. That's pretty good I you can do. I think it's part of the mission. Isn't there that wasn't there a controversial torture sequence and GTS five. Yeah Yeah yes I kind of got about that 'til Justice Moment. Yeah well wooded. Jj Five writing but another time all right. Thanks for playing real mature video games as perfect. It's perfect am I. The only one here that played the campaign mood for mortal Kombat Eleven. I I don't think even you played that Damon I did. I Miss Remembering I played it last year. I didn't play any of the multiplayer. Play through the campaign was really fun. Which is earning platforming. No it's just it's just fights with all the characters With cut scenes in between them. So they yell each other and then they fight and then to other people. Yeah exactly binding. You played it to. There's a single payer expansion for moral of eleven coming up this month aftermath. It has brand new story. Content takes place right where mortal combat Levin left off. Although I have I can't remember where that was Andrew introduces three new catchers. Fujin Sheva and robocop speaking of one of them's a lady. Goro eighty eighty s action. Stars like Predator. We also have rebelled the original actor. Peter Weller is voicing. That's so crazy game. Yeah I didn't yes that is crazy but did they confirm. They didn't just pull his voice clips from the movies. No but they're using his likeness of somebody to sign something. You said they didn't do that why I I don't know that they confirmed it. But I know at Boone on twitter was like and yes that is Peter Weller voice. Yeah I decided. I don't know if they actually got him in the studio to record new stuff or they just cut out samples from dead or alive. You're coming with me. Drive it so good movie that one and the second are both very good. A lot of people don't appreciate how good robocop two is. A little kid villain is awful them well. He's he's a bad guy. Yeah I know I don't mean it in that way. I think it's impossible to watch because of well take it up with the director of empire strikes back. It's like sonic the hedgehog. It's like he's always with a tall lady and it makes me very uncomfortable. The interesting thing about this is that last year the Terminator was made available in Mortal Kombat. Eleven so now rubber conference thermometer you can have robots finally out of dark horse comics. Yeah exactly mortal combat is just dark dark. Dark Horse. Comics you play. There's like Alien Predator Jason and Freddy. Yeah Dude I read all those dark horse comics based on movies. Alien Terminator. The thing there was a series on the thing. I didn't even know that star wars for a while too crazy. Yeah I like. There must be a free mortal Kombat. Levin Update May twenty sixth three players. It adds new stages sage retaliates and most importantly friendships ships are back in the game. So we all need to confirm sages the deadpool and the sole chamber both of which are classic mortal combat stages the deadpool originated mortal combat to and sold chambers for mortal Kombat three. There are three options now. This is the part that irks me. Three options for Getting Mortal Kombat aftermath. If you already own more combat eleven in the first combat pack of characters You can get it for forty dollars for an upgrade path if you have to combat eleven but not the first combat pack there's a bundle containing aftermath and combat one. The cost fifty dollars. Okay so I think that's me that's me okay. And finally if you're completely neutral mortal combat and you want everything You get you get the vanilla. Mortal Combat Levin Comeback One and aftermath for sixty dollars. So you see what I'm getting screwed here. I bought mortal Kombat already for sixty dollars and now I have to pay fifty dollars to get comeback one and aftermath. But if you haven't bought anything you only get everything. Yeah maybe it's because the game is cheap to buy by itself. Now maybe so you know maybe bug me a little bit though. That's really expensive. But I know I know there's a lot to this and stuff just generally dropping fifty dollars after a game is out is pretty unusual thing of. It's not a sequel. Yeah Yeah but I am so deep into a final fantasy seven. So who knows if I'll actually get to play more mortal Kombat Games basically talking fighting? Also that's true bad. You just broke this whole thing wide open. That's like that's like it's another talkie fatty talkie said that you playing seven. No I haven't played it yet. In fact I was going to not play it period. What's your favorite found? My favorite final fantasy of all time or fantasy six followed by nine those You just like nine and nine five favorite wonderful and you should play an on switch because it's it's a lot more fun just able to stop playing without having to run around and find a safe spot. Yeah is it helped to be able to speed it up and does have all that makes a big difference in being able to play in bed and just like grind a bit and or you fall asleep or you're just grinding embiid. How are the Telcos and the moguls? They're the best in nine. The best everything about the most pure final fantasy essence agreed that the just playing a lot of Pudgy. I haven't played Pudgy in a very long time. Actually I I just And I don't I'm I keep feeling the need to go back to it. Yeah and then I talked myself out of it and I go play something else. 'cause I spent a lot of a lot of time over seven hundred hours of my life all my almost eight hundred hours. Actually seven hundred seventy and I was never really that good. It's really fun though. When you get like some of your friends together and you play squads. It's like it's super. That's the absolute fun to play. 'cause you're hanging out you're shooting people collecting things you know. Have you ever got a solo chicken dinner several times several? Though I'm not bad I'm just no no. I don't know how many times I've lost count. Okay it's wonder some more than ten. Probably somebody is checking my online records right now. We know that. Seth loses count somewhere between five and ten. That's one hundred percent difference between those two numbers correct math. Sam Justin do you remember the Airbus? Airbus buster fight in thirty seven. Yeah Oh yeah. Our member airman in mega man to Let's basically the same thing various. Airbus it does where you are right now as I did last night okay. So you're just like Shit repeal. That's great that was it goes on for ever. The fight fight didn't actually go on forever for me but like that that you do the same thing. Three times like a terminal card. It's what part do you want to discard. None of this makes any sense it so oddly paced because each time you bust into a new room. They seem fucking shocked. That you're there this who are you. What are you hearing? What was just happening underneath? You like no one. Pick up the phone and call. It'd be like they're running towards you right now. It might be a SCIFI world. That doesn't have phones. The Guy Oh they have very divisive. Damn holograms out of something. But they're usually little robots. I got boss fights you. It's like a it's a boss fight because it's like just floated away hold exactly. I think that game is the excellent amazing trips all the right nostalgia triggers but like there are large parts of it. They're easy to make fun of well. Yeah sure that's totally fair All right let's move on. We've got some switch updates today. Nintendo switches past fifty six million units sold craze. That is that is half of the playstation. Four's one hundred an eight million in just three years. Yeah that's some deal so like as ps four sales wind down. I don't know I wonder. If it's the peace could get close to matching it over the next couple of years. Can you believe how much does twist the knife? History at this point. Canada's jumped right to switch thirteen million lifetime for the way you is it really that low. I think I might even. It's either ten million or thirteen million. It's very disheartening and low. I've got one now. I love that that little thing. It's still downstairs. All all dirty not plugged in. We're GONNA talk about the software to because that's the unbelievable thing no those numbers about like. How many how much animal crossing muscled animal crossing was thirteen. Eleven million or thirteen million more in. Its I like you know like eleven days than the other animal crossings did in their entire lifetime of the product and they shared a bunch of other updates to like even like Louise's mansion which like nothing against it like leeches mansion is like five or six million copies sold spell tune to is over ten million like I think Mario Kart eight which is a re releases at twenty four million copies now. Yeah it's unbelievable I mean is it really. I mean I know technically the released but since nobody played it before I mean mar mark eight numbers. That's like we'RE GTE. Five was like six months or whatever. It's so funny to see that Jay. I've is still there was a point where I where it was Every new console was being purchased a copy of GTE Five. I think the astral chain broken million to like Nintendo wrong with that council needs to be on switch. What we're getting at right. I mean it probably could run switch. Freon there. What's your three. Yeah exactly I mean there was a version of a dad is also true work. Get that we've had. Gte Five for so long in Switch Kit. La into our. Yeah Yeah Yeah. I mean same era this month. They're getting. They're getting the bioshock collection again. The Board Lynn's hey really appeals to me. Yeah that's a really good one is infinite in the collection one to infinite you. I've never played too. I never finished to people like it a lot. Yeah and the is the gun. Home Mineral Well true true pre gone home. Yeah Yeah Wow okay for some context. Fifty six million into the switches sold me and they only have six million to go to beat the NS. I hate that and then I mean the we one hundred and two million. So they're going to over the next couple of years they're going to get close to beating the we. It's just too bad. Didn't have that cultural impact at the start that the we had because that was just a fun time for Nintendo but they might be having that now with animal crossing and a global pandemic always going to be associated this moment in history with animal crossing. It's kind of crazy. Yeah people are always hitting me up. Hey where can I get switch? Can you show me where I can buy a switch and I say that because you're wearing that shirt right? Yeah take me to your leader. What else did they ask you to buy? What are you getting the best? The Best Gaming chairs Oh no gears you just because I think anybody wearing that shirt. It's like hey he's the guy to ask about other things right guy wearing this shirt with a neck tattoo and you need some weed hundred to ask him just ask. You'RE GONNA get a bad sob rating if you ask him. Just don't ask had you say Justin's question I actually want to know what which is what a joke version of it are people looking for switches more than anything else right now absolutely. Yeah Yeah No. They're most places where you can get them. You have to buy them in a bundle so like You know with I mean it's Oh no. I have to buy a switch with a game. But you can't otherwise you can't just by a switch your bundled with rare instances it'll pop into stock and then we'll like tweeted out. Hey guess whether it's at Walmart and then you know five minutes later. Everyone in the replies is It's not there anymore. It's like December after a game launch onto launch Amon. It's like yeah. It's like a brand new console that it's like. Ps Two it took me. It took me three months to get my hands on a PS two. I looked everywhere. I mean everywhere I mean no stone was left a blockbuster and write a ton of DVD's and watch them all night of I already a DVD player in my Macintosh. I MAC really. It was really fun to watch. Dvd's on a thirteen inch. Mac Tell Yeah Way to do that really comes through speaking of watching movies on your computer. Just Alamo is doing like an Alamo direct service where you can rent and buy movies directly from Alamo and it's a curated list of movies but I don't think they have like an APP like your TV or ps four gift to wash it on your computer or your laptop or they send you those cool Takata Mitchell Ladas where they stuff everything into the just give it to. They should those are good. I like it. Let's check in with listeners. I remember you can always reach us at the email address at dot com just like just in from Lawrence Kansas avenues and this justin thanks to stay. Well seems like feels like a lifetime ago we ever did. It wasn't it wasn't hang out. That is true. Just thinks he's found the daime game incarnate. He says hunt down heard of it. This thing is chockablock with eighties references. Sixteen bit pixels and so bad. The good puns. It's out may twelve. Have you guys heard of this game hunt down now? I'm going to share the key art. Oh great with you guys. I've been playing. I have been playing this. Actually this is the thinking down the what now. This is the thing that people photoshop us into. No although it is kind of like this yeah so I haven't been playing this. This is a sort of sixteen bit style. Stop Cool Oh you know. Here's a guy down in the lower left this guy down on the lower left. Who'S SHIRT SAYS MISCONDUCT NOW? Just think that's a very cruel shared. Sam It's the misconducts gangs gangs. How cool names like that? Sounds pretty frenetic. It's a sixteen bit. I'm back running gun platformer with a really cool very detailed sixteen. Bit Art Style. Very COOL SINCE WAVE. Soundtrack told up my alley. I play the first two levels and it's definitely cool. It gets it just. It just remains to be seen if they can sort of keep my interest or if fit the the gag will get played out. I don't know we'll see but it's called hunt down in his out may twelfth. I'm playing places for in style to like nineteen eighty x yes but Nineteen eighty x has better pixel art. Okay what does that allow customize? You can't customize anything you can choose from three playable characters have Different weapons But the whole thing is voice acted which is interesting for Pixar game since all this voice acting and then the cut scenes remind me of ninety point click like from Lucas Arts. Just like the way. The characters are animated and stuff in school. I've been enjoying Justin. Sammy still playing. Found fantasy seven. Yes still still still ends up. It's fantastic. I can't wait to play whenever a chance offered a little. I I'm trying to. I'm not sure I have played it in the last week but I hadn't. I haven't declared that I'm done with it. Okay I think I have not played it but not because I'm done with it but just I've I. I don't know we were very hooked on succession. I'm just burnin through a lot of that right now. They have incredible. It's the best show but I have a few minutes to kill it. Been playing a lot of cross. Oh man s four for you. I have this this chain reaction of like every time a new across comes out. I'm like Oh shit. I never finished all the ones in the last pickoffs and so I actually have stuff in pick three to I. Never I never finished the Mega Bancroft and pick one. So I don't ever actually finish them and I feel a little bit of guilt so I'm playing Kinda. I'm all four games at once right now. I've probably completed eighty to eighty five percent of all the puzzles in all the pig crosses exactly so seth no pudgy no final fantasy seven. What are you playing? I've been playing tales of a spirit which I bought on a deal like two weeks ago and I've been playing across S. four which I've never played a Husky before impair. Well like you have to buy this or you're fired so and it's fun and me and my son were actually hanging out. Just puzzles is really cool. He's like oh he run over and he points to the screen by the game has a two player mode. What all right well. I know we're doing tonight. Yeah he doesn't have to growth hate that dad's play across with them. Put Your Heart. You bust into his room. Throw the math homework out the window. Come with me son. Solving puzzles realize life skills. Yeah the two player is not fancy. But it's like very well done like you. Just both control a cursor can fill in things like you can each start at one corner of the screen and just play it in real time a down. Superfund I'm GonNa have great and then tales of US. Barry played that on switch. Yes that sounds tales game justin. This is what you play you play trails of like trails guy. Yes crack took trails tails they're all. Jr. That I've been on a huge share. Pg Kick and that was on sale and someone was like you'll like it and they were right so thank you for that recommendation. Parents lets the worst share. Pg overplayed the worst jr ever played. God that I've that's that's hard to answer because there's not been a genre that has like higher heights and lower lows and you get you get a little bit of Stockholm Syndrome. Because like that for seventy found fantasy thirteen movie. Yeah I was always very carefully research all my. I still do all my game purchases like. How is this reviewed and GM and the Sushi X? Thanks for this one and then I would. I don't know how the worst Jaffe Gee I played was but I definitely like I went through a phase where like that was me in the thirty two. Bit Era so I played all the bad. Ps One ones all of those. So bad one. Sixteen eight bit Final fantasy legend is very bad. That's you in three are okay one is really bad and I just played it like crazy. I don't know why if the legend which South Se adventure is the good one. Yeah Adventures the just secretive or what? I'm you know. Yep Yep it taking F to J like the original fancy to on the S. is terrible that one of the worst one. Yeah actually I hated south. Nfc three remake on DS. That came sucked. Really how I look a like. The super deformed versions he you know he told me to play that. Andrew Goldfarb Nice friend of a friend of everyone. That's true. Yeah well so found. Super Nintendo was finally Tennessee. Four right yes so I guess I've never played the real two in three or five or five. Yeah so I've I've never played through it but it's like yeah it's worth checking out. I played too. I played a fan translated any s rom as how I played that game. So that's the only way to play the eight bit version in English. They've remained at various times in various ways. If you're willing to you know deal with like three D graphics of to get the get the original thing. That's the way you have to play. There's a PS one collection with slightly graphics Super Bad. Why is that makes no sense? You got it now but the game on the cartridge. The data's right there all right that brings us to video game. Twenty questions are suggestion. This week comes from Stephanie. She says hello from Burrillville Rhode Island. Let THE QUESTIONING. Begin south. She's in your head you're coast not that close to well. I mean compared to have you been to Burrillville. I've you know I've been to Rhode Island once in my entire life and I just drove through and I stopped to go to the bathroom. How long would it take you to drive to Rhode Island to drive to Rhode? Island is probably two or three hours to drive across alley Los Angeles from here six hours Los Angeles Sacramento is two hours three hours from here. Everything in California's two hours away. My wife grew up in southern California. We used to live right by the beach is like a two hour drive by the Rhode. Island's a suburb of where you live. Main is a suburb of the United States. We want it. This is from fourteen thousand. Yes is it from before. Nineteen Ninety no ninety s game. This is Three D. Graphics. No was this on a disk based system yes assessment listening to the show court space game. That's to me though is unusual. Was this a playstation one game? Yes that's five twenty of the night. It's fluffy it's on playstation wanted to D- game that's actually fairly unusual trying to think all the no no because that's like two point five could be. It could be a raisman game though. Is this a two D is a side scrolling platformer? Yeah Yes yes it is. I think it's the night probably as spooky no not Yeah Unlikely to spooky or likely to be symphony. That Games got hello skeletons in it. Is this game sequels. Yes was game. Developed in Japan no was delivering Europe. No that wasn't European. Not European the RAISMAN Games a European right are. They know they're not they're Super French. The I think so. Yes but so is Quebec. Well that's a good point said. Is this a? Is this like a like a cutesy kid style game in its art? No whoa it could be a top down. Shooter sets forming by forming darn. It wasn't The mega man. That came out on playstation. Wasn't that too there could be. I'm thinking that the I mean they are legends. Is the one. I know the best that age. Yeah that's right that's right and there's this I'm also thinking of like odd world. Oh yeah but it wasn't developed in Japan. Oh right odd world. What is that game? They will man the little guy that runs her out is it. Does this fit the criteria? Yeah well to as that. No no no that was made by What do you call it? Auburn Abdin how to narrow this down. This game have is an spooky now. Does this game have? The graphical style does it have like Pixel Art. Is it a pixel art game? I don't think you would call it that but it is to d which we established so. I don't know enough about world's ask any questions you played alien. They I could narrow down of that but I just don't think it's that David. Do you play as a human no. Is this Game David? Would you call it like a like a puzzle as this like a two D puzzle platformer? He plays an alien yes. It's fifteen habitants abril. Whatever the Sarah One yes. It is odd World AIDS Odyssey there. It is work. Ninety-nine PS ONE. Empty Cinematic platformer. Cinematic platformer you did it. Become a Microsoft series at some point no but stranger's wrath was exclusive extensive. I remember that one. Yeah I wrote. That was a any to decide strollers for playstation one. Because it's stupid looking back. I never played Castellini sympathy until like ten years ago because I was like. I'm not gonNA play this one. Yeah that was Enron you of is all like this game is good in spite of the fact that it's a two and now I love pat and it's incredible. It's so fun to play on ipad though what simply the night dollars an IPAD. You can use your playstation four controller it sinks right to the blue and works awesome. It's Super Fun to play. Just you know yeah one of the secret. Weapons of like Mobile Gaming is that Bluetooth. You compare your xbox or playstation controller to your mobile device and like many many games just support it out of the box now. Yeah Keyboard to your switch if you have the USB port and it just works for Games type like animal crossing. Oh I don't know you. I know that I'm telling you had about anything else. You just plug it in. You can type out letters in animal crossing. Can you use the Gamecube adapter to use that huge controller with the keyboard on it? That's a good idea. I forgot about that. It's sit between the controller. Came with to like game side slammed onto onto we got a real has a special place in my heart because when I got. Ps One. I got it with final fantasy seven odd world and Tekken three or like three games. Were you got your your your fighting game and your platformer.

Who realizes his people are being enslaved by this big corporation and they're gonNA be like turned into food so he escapes and you have to free as many of your brethren as you can and you can use mind control on the lesser aliens to get them to do things like kill themselves and and it's all very comic mischief comic violence. It's really fun. Why am I picturing like this? Big Three game with a guy in like a duster with like no face. Bad say so different. It's the third one. They switched switched generous. Like that was their vision for like Alberto was like all these different games in different genres before they were like trying to do a video game cinematic universe. Yeah probably is.
