"Oakland and come from behind fashion. They trailed three nothing early. They rallied three runs in the top of the ninth. Let off led by Mookie Betts RBI double scored two runs in the Red Sox. Get off the Schneider. They are now two and five and before we get into analyzing last night's game jet. We've got four teams in the American League that we all figure we'll make the playoffs. The Red Sox the Yankees the Indians and the Astros. They're all off the bat starts the Red Sox two and five the Astros, a two and five Yankees of two and four Cleveland's two and three. So I am good at math their combined eight and seventeen which is got awful. That's the poll question today who had the worst opening week of the major league baseball seasons. The Red Sox Astros. Indians yankees. I guess it would go to a couple of factors there one. How the starting pitching look at? And so that's not in the Red Sox favor. No starring pitching terrible. And to the competition they played it's it's harder to to make that determination at this point in the season. You know, who's who the good teams bad teams are so tough to say I'd say I voted for the Red Sox won. But that's because I've fold them close. Yeah. I know that they've struggled with their starting pitching. And they haven't really looked good. Both their wins were come from behind wins. That's okay, though. I mean that's going to happen. Yeah. It's not like they hold a strong last night. I official win of the season which they had that narrative all last year. Right. They gave him the Astra. Yes. All the way. I guess that you know that World Series trophy should have an Astros take ways on the one away the eleven in the postseason. I vote for the Yankees again where having poll John at twenty five because the Yankees that they've sustained injuries in the first week, right? You've got Andrew. Done for the season Stanton's on the I L. You've also lost the Orioles in Tigers. At least the Red Sox on the west coast against Seattle and Oakland Oakland was a ninety seven win team last year. Seattle's got pretty good lineup not much defensively. But I would say that the Yankees had a worst week. I think the Red Sox can recover from this sale cocaine the other night and new form of all the this is what all the is as big as fan, but there's gonna be some bad performances are going to be some electric performances. That's what you're gonna get with him. But I think the Red Sox can recover from a two and five starting Enke's it dealing with injuries. And the fact that they lost to bad teams to kick season will also expand it is that they are lucky that they do have two wins because they fought back from injuries and they've managed to get to wins that so yeah. So the Orioles in the Tigers. I don't know how those teams could turn it around from us a good idea. I think Seattle and Oakland certainly better than the Orioles. Probably probably I would say more than. Probably say that's the case. But nonetheless, none of these teams are off to a great start. But that's kind of the whole point of this is that look Tampa has the best record of the American leave phillys finally lost their first game yesterday. I mean, Christian was waiting with baited breath, finally lose, but we expecting affiliate Tampa worlds of two thousand. I if I'm remembering correctly that's going to happen. So this is really early in the season last night. At least you battled back and again of all gives up three earned runs in five innings and then your bullpen gives up nothing. So here we are seven games into the season. And the bullpens been the best part of this team. They went out last night, and you have has been lights out and the people of painting this as closer by committee. It's not it's using your best reliever. Who at this point is Matt Barnes in the high leverage moments. Right. He comes in gets Chris Davis out in the seven he pitches the eight so that when Ryan brazier gets the save a three run lead. So it's not a high leverage. Situation. So what would you call that? Then that's being practical. Okay. Being practically practical using your best pitcher you most high situation at some point isn't that going to piss off at Barnes because you statistically, not going to rack up the that's where. Yeah. That's where you go there because if you had arbitration, and they say, jeez, twelve saves. You got eighteen holes, and maybe hold is going to be a big stat now going forward and probably is because kimbrel never wanted to pitch any other ending. But the night now he would get saves in. Then that supposed to mean money will what Craig kimbrel doing right now. He's not pitching for anyone because I think that you look at that that the seventh eighth sometimes even the sixth inning can make a break inning SOX. Got down three nothing of all these out of the game. They start the chip back in that bullpen holes Oakland scoreless for the final four innings. Colton did a nice job. He gets five outs. Barnes gets four routes and brazier gets three outs. But again, the most high leverage situation with Matt Barnes who in theory should be your best relief pitcher. At this point. I think he is. I mean, he's granted limited opportunities. But he's great and both of them. And he had a good year last year brazier they both did despite how malign the bullpen was mean at times they were one of the top rank bullpen in the American League baseball. No. Happened in the postseason Joe Kelley was lights out here. Other than kimbrel. Everybody really was terrific. In the postseason. Barnes was great. Everyone was great in the bullpen except for your clothes criminal who was a heart attack closer at that point. Joe Kelley went and got a good contract with the dodgers. And apparently hurt his back cooking food had do that. He was standing up cooking nextgen food at that. Maybe he's trying to flip a pancake out his back. That's the way to do. It. Baseball players get hurt and some strange ways football players go up there. And collide with Tom Brady would say, they need more pliability. That's the case because when you making food for the entire team you can throw out your for hurt yourself making food. No, just jaw no bit your tongue. No only chew gum that can be an issue. Sometimes I chew gum, very, very forcefully say yesterday, you had a pack of gum. But it looked like a box of cards like those things are crazy. They were sealed in the really want. The peace of do like five steps to access piece of gum denting pure guides could stuff out of I was always orbit. And now I do because I was hurting my jaw doing so much. Well, I get headaches. You can't that does happen sometime because my doctor told me no more gum on it. And it becomes very very forceful, and it could lead the headaches. But I think you know, look the Red Sox two and five now they're playing this afternoon to wrap this four game series up. They'll try to get a split of these four games. You got out there for the Red Sox? Lord knows what you're gonna get with him. You just never know. I mean, he could come out and today and be electric or he could come out and not be very good. Who knows? It was really nice to see the bats come alive a little bit last night. I mean that was the that was the concern for the past two games is that they scored no runs combined in the prior to game. So you want to see some signs of life from the offense. And the biggest hit of the game was weird one that went right off the that was Mukhi hit it right off the third bag and Chapman. I was saying during the game his vacuum cleaner there anything, but hitting it off the bag there. You're probably out. Maybe change your lock. Sometimes you need a little break for this. Oh, yeah. Way badly. I mean, he doubled by because the ball took a bizarre hop off their base baseball two runs and Benintendi drives in nother run. Great hits three. Yes. Really smoke that one wake up the bats. And Christian said yesterday, the finals who games last year in Oakland and the first two games this year in Oakland is go to grant total of one run. You just not winning games when you score an average point five runs per game that doesn't work right? They need. They need some luck there. And they got him times you need it. And now you can kinda like exhale because I think there's a lot of pressure on this team playing for the Boston Red Sox you the defending World Series champ. She have the biggest payroll in baseball. You can't just go through it and say, well we can live off last year. People demand a repeat or at least a team that's gonna win ninety eight plus games and be right there at the Astros and Indians. I mean, you can't be competitive for your in the mix spend more money than it. Right. You got to be in the mix. That's what people expectation it is same thing. Look, the patriots aren't going to fall back and say, you know, what we want six Super Bowls eight I think it's the expectation of every team in Boston is you. Mix or else they are off of people's radar. I mean, the the Celtics right now turned into the red headed stepchild because team you don't like the Bruins of overachieved the patriots develop delivered six championships the Red Sox four and here, the Celtics who was I thought it would be the next to want to championship at this time last year in two teams of one at cents. But I think that now maybe the team can kinda actually I wonder if the pressure starts the mount from within because you know, you've got guys that just signed contract extension. Right. Chris sale. I know he's gonna put a lot of pressure on himself Zana Bogart's. I've said it a million times as Taipei personality. I think he really really wants to be the best player. He can when he makes a mistake. I think he takes it to heart. And at some point, maybe he gets older. Now, he'll understand that. Look I made an error in the field. Next time I'm gonna make good with that or vice versa. So that's something that a player learns to do as he gets older. Yeah. You know, it could be that. I think that's certainly a reasonable explanation for. Maybe the slow start or what they're out there. The past couple of days is the opposite, which is complacency and resting on your laurels. Not feeling the pressure and saying, well, we won the World Series. You know, what we don't have to prove anything to anybody anymore and with fending champions. We won a franchise record one hundred and eight games last year. We can just sorta sleepwalk through the post to the regular season and be able to beat bad teams. So that's the other concern is to find the middle ground between too much pressure being put on you and complacency. That's where you wanna be right in the middle there because otherwise you're you're pressing or you're not pressing enough. Yeah. They say the best way to motivate a sales staff is a little bit of pressure. So that they know if they don't do a good job that they may be out of a job. So there's a little pressure there too much pressure and cave, and then maybe they get pushy and they lose a sale of sale right or they get a fake sale. Whatever the case may be. And this is data has come to say, right. Yes. Some of Glengarry Glen Ross when you look at the. Two thousand and five team that was different because it had been eighty six years. They finally broke through. And look the two thousand five teams qualified for the playoffs. They won ninety five plus games. They lost to the White Sox. They got swept they were overwhelmed by the White Sox in the divisional round. But people could say, okay, at least we got through eighty six years. And now we find the one world championship. Now. It's like it's demanded that this team this year. Tries to repeat the first team to to repeat a champion since two thousand Nike's, or at least like you said be in the mix. They can't do what they didn't thousand fourteen which is celebrates thousand thirteen and then be a last place team. Right. Not at all. Can't see that happening. I think there's too much talent on this team. Yeah. It would be really hard to see. But considering the done it before. I mean, it's not like it's outside the realm of possibility. It does seem hard to believe they'll considering the amount of talent they have on the team, especially even though they're not playing particular all the pitching should be able to keep you afloat in the Knicks that we think. As far as as what you were saying before that with short of the expectations of the team. I think in large part, it's weird say it. The patriots have something to do with that the amount of success. Absolutely. The patriots have had in their necks. Every year puts pressure on all the other teams here, it sure does. I would assume back in. I don't know it wasn't around not that old. But you know in the fifties. The other teams in New York probably felt pressure because the Yankees were winning it every single season or just felt that way. Yeah. There's a lot of pressure on these other teams look at the Red Sox. I've often pointed this out to people a magin if you were revenge winkle and you went to sleep. Twenty years ago and you woke up, and I told you that the Boston Red Sox have won four World Series since you've been asleep. And they're not even the most popular team in town. You'd laugh at me Red Sox always the most popular team in town. They'd have full World Series. Well, who the hell's Celtics? The Bruins run really know the patriots. So now they didn't contract that team. They didn't move didn't just Hartford patriot. Look like what's going on here? That's the way it is snow it, you're right..

"Swing on a drive in the air to left pretty deep back goes back onto the track. Trai Turner, just over the fence in left how he rose. Hi, I'm Howie rose. WCBS eight eighty second home or the game for Turner all sorts of three run shot off Zack Wheeler in the third inning net. Six Mets five Mickey Callaway. Staying with Justin Wilson for the beginning of his second inning of work served up that game winner Calloway says it wasn't even really a mistake. You gotta give credit to the hitter in that spot man is a good pitch. And he just kind of went down and got it. And he managed to keep it in play. The most guys pulled that ball foul, and he stayed through it and he's a great hitter. Misery. Oh, Ramos, lagaras that RBI single in the eighth which tied at five as for Wheeler. Got knocked around in that third inning ended up going five innings. No decision. So not a sweet. But now Callaway says the Mets did show some fight back and showing those guys. Hey, we're never gonna lay down. It. Doesn't matter who you got pitching the eighth ninth. You've got to have to bring your closer in for five outs. And you're still not going to get it done. If they got it done in the bottom of the night. You know, we we haven't spent a lot of time talking about Pete Alonzo. I mean, he really has impressed right off the bat yard Keith talking about if you're watching the games that you big guy line drive hitter using that hang laundry on those line drives. He he has impressed early authors. There. Yeah. There is no doubt about it. So it very very exciting to see what he can be. Usually what happens is a guy like this though league eventually catches up to impeach him different than he's gotta make an adjustment. But so far so good for him really happy that he's on the team and doing what he's doing. And I hope he stays here for a long first couple of bats against match. Sure assures was not there were not great now. But then all of a sudden he settled down got his first hit in that first game late in the game. And then all of a sudden now joy taking off. Now. The question is. He's got to work at first base. Right. So he has got to continue to work on his defensive aspect of his game. He's got to become a solid all around ballplayer. And I think you hit it right on the head. They will adjust to him. Now. The question is what are they going to do to try to get them out before we continue with the update every morning from now until the NFL draft. We have our WFAN giants beat reporter on for one question. It's paulie dot on the spot. So Paul detino a one question a day from now until the draft. He is with us. Now are the giants can extend Eli contract, Paul. Route is absolutely a possibility. I don't wanna hear that. You really is. I don't want to hear that. I didn't want to hear that at all. And I heard it. All right. So he agrees with Ralph back on then. Yes. Well, yes, I guess so he's not denying that report. So anyway, not ruling it out. The beat goes on continue the way you brought up Alonzo's defense Mickey Callaway to throw him my little compliment after the game that the soundbite wasn't great. But I'll summit up. He's big fan of his stretching. Ability doesn't nice job of stretching. And making sure he catches the ball thing. A the little thing that is kind of job GIO overt first shorts. The right, right. And you knew that you did not have that big of a radius like when we have met Martin playing first base. Yeah. That's a big radio. So yes, catching radius. Yeah. Right now, but g over there. He's a little bit more like Peter Lonzo within his body. A little Maddy Mars can go high points in ball's not as much. Well, listen, I'm going to be more spry this year for sure I mean, the new uniform, by the way, well, what take your unit. To your local Taylor Taylor that we're carrying them over this share, right? Yes. Okay. We got two sets anywhere. We have the spring set, which is the blue and the gray right with the pants with the pants. That's the gray pants. And then we have the Somerset that is the red with the with the navy's blue short. Yes. Yes. For one way to really hot out way too. Big. We have plenty of other you need a smaller pair of pants. Yes. Indeed. I don't know about the jersey though. I mean, I put the pants on the day. It was like MC hammer pants. Remember, it's been where it's like, I can't do this anymore. And I know you wanted professional looking baseball softball players Slava right now. Three of our guys are plan. Our team are getting ready to go to the playoffs in the NHL. Right fingers crossed for a Cup, man. Let's go. So we could celebrate celebrate Stanley. That'd be so. Yeah. Yeah. Dream on sipping champagne out of the country at a summer wedding. Yeah. It's amazing. We want the Cup. We. Had a place that we would never be able to get in without an invitation. Right. I honestly could you imagine that have you think about that? For the second is a possibility absolutely positively once your anything's air would have to be at that at the reception. It would have to be there. Come on. I'm sure would be I don't make those now. Hold on though. They have a scheduled, right? Where each player gets what a week players and coaches members that you get a week with the Cup right or a couple of days with the listen is going to be so many of the players at the wedding someone. This. This would not be his day, this wouldn't count it'd be like an extra thing. Yeah.

No, I could see Bettman doing this just a tweak me, you know, what I'm saying. I could in the islanders to win the Stanley Cup. It all comes back to me. Yeah. Sure. The to record in their favor. Screw the boomer button. Right. I want to play one more Calloway from you just because he's kind of speaking to the fans a little bit about how even though they lost a big moral victory yesterday. No, we're not going to lay down. So I'm really proud of the guys. All the fans should be proud that those guys went out there. And did what they did this this weekend. Halloween. Wanna series come on? The proudly Dan boys out there fought for you in the orange and blue. Amboise went out there could've laid down. But the cattle run right over them.

"Eighty six sixty six how about the Celtics without Kyrie Irving? I'm telling you, I might be second guessing the idea of kyri to the Knicks now, maybe he'd be better here in New York wanting to play for the Knicks, but he was out again tonight for the Celtics did arrest Boston now eleven and two without Kyrie Irving on the year to me will be saying something and they've had a disappointing year. There was supposed to be more dominant team in the Eastern Conference. Now, maybe they could get in the postseason iguana Ron, but right now, the fifth seed, and they're pretty solid there. The Pacers even without all depot all that time. I've still been able to manage better record than the Celtics. Now, they're tight to fewer losses than Boston. But balls was supposed to be much better. And Kyrie Irving has had was boy talk about a negative cloud around. Kyrie Irving is kind of had that this year. And maybe he does leave Boston. Maybe he's better with the Knicks. I don't know. But I I've been turned off you don't ever want to read too much into one. Year. I've been turned off enough by Kyrie Irving this year that I would be concerned. I was watching some highlights here is I talk you down your Murphy that vintage Murphy swings rocketed one that I saw this happened earlier today for the Rockies weird watch Murphy in rocky uniform, I wonder if the Rockies going to be good this year. I like rooting for them out in the west. I don't think the dodgers are going to be a good is everybody else. We'll get second though. I don't know if I'm sold on kyri. I, you know, you want Iran and Zairean would be great. And then you need a point guard. I don't love Dennis Smith junior. So Kyrie's the obvious, right? We talked about three big things for the next two max free agents and get a top pick. Hopefully, one of the top two picks. I loved to get John Moran. But then you don't have Zahn, you'd have Durant and Mirant, and you need to add someone someone else in there. But either way you look at the Celtics they've been disappointing in that Eastern Conference, and it should be fun to saying, oh, the boxer banged up. But the box been the best team all year long in Eastern Conference. Magic red hot right now. That would not be a team you'd want face or you look forward to facing in the first round. Will be fun Western Conference. Same thing can somebody for once beat the Golden State Warriors. Danvers got the same record is Golden State right now. I don't know. I mean, the rockets would still be probably the team most likely to threaten them with the Taibbi year hardens having, but it's the same thing last year, what the rockets the same team thunder have just been a mess as of late sinking in the Western Conference standings. All the playoff teams are set there. Well, Sacramento is not technically eliminated. But they're not going to get in there. Five games back of the Spurs for that final spots. That's not gonna happen. But basically the playoff teams are set in the Western Conference. The seating is yet to be determined. And I think this is somebody will be Golden State. I don't think golden says one of them all and whether it's the Eastern Conference, whether it's somebody in the west, I don't think Golden State is winning all and then the sooner the season gets over with the Quaker we get. Okay. What's going to happen with the Knicks the draft the free agents? That's where we need to get before you get back to the call eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six the the idea of predicting stuff, and I'm not talking about what I just said about like the warriors and things even though that is meaningless as well. The idea of predicting things before the season, right? How great is it? I used to love saving my Sports Illustrated baseball preview magazines, because I like comparing to what they say before the season to what actually happens, and it's never even close. Same with the NFL preview. It's never even close not to knock the experts. But it just goes to show you what is the point of making these predictions and doing. All this stuff. All the mock drafts never closed. Oh baseball predictions who will win the division who's going to be in the wildcard who's going to do this. Who's gonna do? It's ninety nine percent people take chalk anyway from year to year, and it never works out like that. So I don't know. I find it to me pointless. I like reading it for entertainment purposes. And again, measuring it up to see how it exactly happens after the year to see how wrong everybody is. Usually, you don't wanna be you wouldn't want the team that you for to be picked to win everything by these people. I guess I'm included in those people media, right? What's the point of Megan these predictions? Nobody knows what's going to happen. Based on what it's a long season the lineups that are they're opening day or the Rogers on opening day or never the same throughout the course of the year and all the way through it's always change. Something happens. You cannot expect to predict which is what makes sports fun. If it was as easy as all. Yeah. Well in the National League dodge, you're gonna win the west. The cubs are gonna win the central. Bruce win a wildcard cardinals get a wild card and the Phillies win the east. Yankees Red Sox Astros Indians. And. I don't know. Throwing another team in there. I guess that second wildcard in the American League. He's not. That'll be up for grabs again that second wildcard in the American League. Anybody but the twins, right? Eight seven seven three three seven sixty six. Sixty six Jake is in Gramercy park. What's up? Hey, Sal, how are you not bad? How are you? Good good. As far as the ground goes, man. He's a great guy. He's a good pitcher. There's no doubt that he should definitely have a future there with the Mets. But I think personally that you know, the Mets left the money on the table. I mean, you know is good as he is in the whole thing. Two years. That's a big deal, man. So anything could happen with this guy. Why do you think it happened with any guy? Yeah. I know. But that's what I mean. I mean, they should have probably waited one more year. What we still? A year you would've ticked him off. He wanted it done now. But who cares if he's oh? Diminishing importance and by the way, Jake if you wait one more year. Why would he a player who's ticked off be a player in his final? You. Why would he sign a deal then with one you to go because you know, what I would do in that spot. I'd say you're not gonna pay me. Now, good. I'll get through this year all dominate and then come next season. I ain't signing anything, and I'm gonna go. Then you take that chance. But it's it's called the ownership. You know, and it's, you know, and that's basically it man. It's you you actually have to look at it. Like that. Like what I mean, they they have one more year two years of control. They should hold tight with one more year. And then done it. I mean, he couldn't do anything until two years. I understand that Jake. But why couldn't they do it before last year of anything you should do it earlier not later? Why would you wait why? Because the chance that he might get hurt. You're gonna wait them already had one Tommy John. Who cares? So what? He's one of the best seasons in baseball history last year. Yeah. But hey, come on fifty five wins. Come on. I know it's late and it's been a long day. Try to explain to me. Are you telling me that this was a bad move by the match is that what you're saying here? I am. I am saying that I mean, how can you say that will the straight face assuming you have a straight face. Now. How can you say? Because it's true how they should have waited one more year, Jake. They can't I gotta hang up on you. Because it's too late. I can't start yawning voice starting to go. I got show tomorrow tend to I can't do it. Now right now, if you called in the ten o'clock hour, we would have had it out. Can't do it right now. How can you possibly think that this was a bad deal? If there were any critiques of this deal. It was that it wasn't done sooner. They should have had the foresight to understand what the Graham was especially if you look back after two thousand fifteen and within the postseason, and they didn't have to do it after fifteen or sixteen but they should have done it at the very least before last season. And I'm not saying that now because conveniently it comes after a an all time season, it would've made sense in the timeline. Were you could have got a good value? Now, I still think they ended up with a good value for him. But it could have been even better you wouldn't even have to worry about this. You would have been ahead of the curve. Every other team would have been trying to log up there guys. You would have already had your guy probably less than a hundred million. Not a Severino type deal. But let's say the Mets prior to last year offer Jacob degrom and extension. That would have. Up to salary, obviously for the three years that he was still under team control. And they would have bought out three years of free agency. So it would have been six years total. You could even got an extra on top of it. But and now they did you could have had him for. I want to say less than one hundred at that point. Now, maybe I'm wrong. Maybe he wouldn't have taken less than one hundred. But what would have been one hundred? Remember you're dating back to before last year to where he's got three years before he hits free agency before he has an all time season. You would have got him at a great bargain. Hey, you don't hit free agency to three more years? But we believe in you, we want you. We want to lock you up. Here's one hundred million. For the next six years. Or one hundred ten let's say. I mean, I still think they got a good good deal. I think this is a good you all the way around. I don't see how you could think it's negative with that would have sent the bad message to the fans be bad. Message to everybody in the organization and take the grandma who cares? Oh, that's how you want to run a team with a who cares? If the guy's happy, you're not. Now, I'm not saying you gotta placate every individual on the team. But your best pitcher one of the best pitchers in baseball. Who deserves it? You gotta make him happy. Because if he's unhappy, and you get the rumblings that will trickle throughout the rest of the team, and that will be a negative cloud that you carry and that attitude that you have about while you're under team control. We got you held hostage. Those are negative things have negative impact. They do more harm than good for what? Because you're worried he might get hurt or not be as dominant as a year ago any player you sign.
