"The grind? Depends on how old is Rex, early 60s? Keep going. I'll look that up. Oh, does he want 60? 6. Thank you. Fever. Does he does he want one more crack at being a head coach? I mean, you think about what he did with the jets, man. Doesn't the jets and that was Bill Belichick. I'm not going to kiss the rings. They beat the Patriots in a couple of playoff series and they got to the AFC championship with the jets and Mark Sanchez twice. Not once but twice. Now the bills thing whatever was what it was. But the bottom line, to me, is do you want to get yourself back in that head coaching chair? Now, I will say this. When you take over as the head coach, there is a grind that's that you have to have, but you are in so much in charge of the day to today operation of the football team and holding the coaches accountable in doing all those things that maybe for whatever reason, maybe the appearance is that guy is not grinding on football, like he needs, but I would just say this. If you look back on your bill's career and say, man, I didn't do what I wanted to do. I didn't obtain what I wanted to attain there. I want another opportunity. Well, then you're going to put your nose back to the grindstone and go get that done. And I thought what he did in his tenure with the jets was pretty incredible. Because he did that without without a legitimate big time QB. I understand that Mark Sanchez with the 5th overall pick and all that. But come on now, none of us looked at Mark Sanchez like he's the answer, right? You realize who Rex Ryan's quarterbacks were as a head coach. They were Mark Sanchez and Tyrod Taylor. Right. And he still in 8 years of coaching has a almost 500 record. And it has four playoff wins. Yeah. With Mark Sanchez and Tyrod Taylor is his quarterback. Right. It's pretty remarkable. When you think about it. By the way, doing it in Brady's division. All those trying to do it in Brady's debate. I'm right. Yeah, that even makes it trying to do it against Brady and Belichick. Right. So if you want to get back in, you got the opportunity to get back in, but what you got to do is you got to come to a place where you can put together a stellar defensive performance for a couple of years. And you'll get another opportunity. If I would imagine, I got to believe the only reason he's entertaining this is because he wants to be a head coach again. Yeah, he can't be just, hey, you know, I missed the game. Let's go back to being a defensive coordinator. Because if that was his motivation, I would question that. But if he's serious about wanting to be a hit, and I do believe that when he got into TV, he thought that the phone would ring pretty quick. 'cause his name was out there. And I was, I was recommending Rex for this job where they were moving on from kubiak. Definitely when they were getting ready to hire Vance, I was talking up Rex. Rex is but then years pass. Sure. You know, you get associated with being a TV guy and pretty soon that's who you are. Remember for years. Hey, Bill tower. Bill cowher, Bill cowher. Right. At some point, you know, you get to a point where you've been doing TV for so long. They stop talking about you. In that vein. So I think that I think that Rex thought he'd be back being a head coach by now. The other thing is the way to do it. Right. The other thing is tedious fun and it scratches that itch for a while to a degree. For a guy like Bill cowher, I mean, that guy can look at it like, hey man, went to two super bowls with the Steelers. We won one. I think it was two in one. He'd been doing it for so long with the Steelers. Then he gets in a TV and goes, hey man, this is all the itch I need to scratch. I'm good. I'm a good money. I've got much more of a home life. Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. I can see that. Here's another opportunity, by the way, so rob Ryan Rex's brother has been a has been a coach for a very long time. Last time I saw cash, what was his Payton's D.C. for three years? Yeah. Around 2011, 2014. Where did I see rob black? Where was rob coaching? So rob was coaching in and he went and did what's the European? Was he in Chicago last year? Anyhow, what's the European equivalent of ESPN? Is it Sky Sports? Rob Ryan was last ADC in New Orleans in Oregon in 2015. And he hasn't coached since 2015. Rob? Let's see. No, no, no. He's been no, no, no, he's with the Raiders last year is in the senior defensive assistant. Okay. Before that, he was with the ravens in 2021 as a linebackers coach. Year before that with the wolf, as a linebackers coach, so I bumped into rob the last few years, there was a year that I think he took off from coaching and he went and worked for Sky Sports out in London, which I know several guys that do that, they go out and live in London for like 7 months of the football season. And they do like they do the equivalent of NFL live on London. It's kind of cool. And I've done some work for them via satellite. Which is kind of cool. I know he did that. But yeah, so rob has been so it'd be a chance to get with your brother. Rob was with Rex in 2016 in Buffalo, okay? A chance again to get with your brother and have him coach linebackers and he knows kind of what you want or telling me we could have Rex and rob. Does rob still have the loss along here? Oh, it's like four. Yeah, it's like fat door. It's like fat Thor. Yes, yes. Fat Thor pounding kegs. Yes. Love fat Thor. Gives me hope. If you're telling me, but let's put a ball on it. You have any concerns that if Rex got this job about his passion and commitment for the job. Oh, no, no, I don't have any, I don't have any concern about that. He'd be great. And by the way, the notion of, is he ready to grind again? Boy, I roll my eyes at the whole idea of these coaches and how they have to grind. Put in 18 hour days and remember Hackett and saying, we're going to sleep in the office. Why? Why? Right. You spent all that time and do that? Maybe there's something to the idea that you need to go home. Go home, go. Get some sleep. Love your kids. Maybe it'll make you a better coach. Maybe bankers hours might not be the worst thing. Coming up. We'll get back into some great audio coming out of all star weekend in the NBA. And why Michael Malone was right on 100% nailed his observation of coaching in this year's All-Star Game. That's coming up next. He's flirting Evans on Denver's sports station, one O four three, the fan. All right.

"Yu Darvish steals it. It uses it and this is walk up yesterday. Now batting for the Padres pitcher number 11 Yu Darvish. And he stands there and kind of lets the music play and Marissa put disarms of, like, really. And then after the game, here's what he said. I used that song because it was Rizzo. That kind of took care of me. What? Things weren't really working my way in Chicago, so it was in a way to say thank you to him. Obviously I have a good relationship with him Rizzo jester to Darvish in the moment, throwing his arms in the air before the two disgusted postgame. We actually texted each other after the game, but I think he was pretty happy about it, Darvish said. I know the Padres fans didn't get that. But if you're the Cubs, you're like, Well, look at you using Rizzo's walk up song pretty pretty awesome. Darvish what people were just killing him Flu Darvish in the whole deal, and then he goes to South Bend to throw and he lasts an inning. He goes. I can't my arm hurts. He's done for the year ever is like what a bust right Then he goes out. He has a lousy start to 19. And then the start throwing more fastballs and bam! They fix it, Tommy. How did he gets him in the right direction, finishes the season strong and he's great during the Covid shortened season, second for saying, Okay, well, my issue originally, as I mentioned before, I didn't think you should have been a co I thought that After his time with the Dodgers. I said, You know, he can go someplace else. He can't really help the Cubs. But then you remember the story when the Cubs went to Los Angeles, and there's Darvish ducking away from the media hiding in small places because he was ducking the L. A media because they were gonna ask him all the questions about how you fail. Like I didn't like that either. And I'd like, so what's the What's up with you? Darvish? What's up with you? And then? Of course, the other storyline is I don't know if I want to play anymore, right? Let me see how they're handling Covid, which I respected him. Get that. Are they taking this stuff? Seriously, Because I can tell you. If not, I'm going back to Japan. I'm not going to get myself sick. My family gonna retire. He says what he's gonna do. I just you know so those things but Just watching the game yesterday. I really like what I saw there and just the resolve of the Cubs being able to win that game. That's what I liked, and we talked about well played games a couple of days ago. Talking about the, uh The first game between the socks and the Jays. This also very well played game. Not a lot of hits, but I've got some really good pitching on both sides. Yeah, really solid, But I thought the meat they're playing the song was awesome. Pretty funny, Awesome. And your guy wisdom by the way. Another another hits, one for four. That guy just keeps delivering man. He just keeps delivering. And we'll have risen with us tomorrow to preview the Cardinals series. They've got the day off today. We were doing the Matthew and I. Their plane got back in Chicago. 11, 11, 30. A lot of those guys have boats. I will guarantee you if they're not all right. They didn't sleep on the boat last night. Those guys are on the water by eight o'clock guaranteed by as has a cool boat. Hayward has an amazing boat. Rizzo has a boat. I don't know who else but there's a bunch I will guarantee you. They are on the water with their cell phones turned off today. Good for them. They deserve it After that. Victory against the Padres and winning that series. For sure. By the way, I I miss buyers at shortstop when I'm watching the Cubs, right. It's just not as smooth was with Alcantara. And Hap in the middle of the infield. Did you see their lineup yesterday? By the way, the stolen base by the way by the the Padres, and that's another reason why I like the Padres is because they kind of turned the clock back a little bit. They believe in him. You know him the other way. They love the stolen base. I think the top team in baseball and stolen bases, But you saw the song based by the Padres yesterday. That happened. Didn't quite have the bias flourish with the tag just just laid it on there. Like Yeah, and there's an outfielder is playing in field, right? Exactly. It wasn't as smooth. You know what I'm saying? Look at their lineup. Mallard. You see the line update ran out there. The Cubs, right? Yes. Okay? Patrick Wisdom is your starting third basement. Ortega is your starting center fielder with a robust 1 56 to 29 to 50 slash line. Contra is your starting shortstop? P. J. Higgins is your starting catcher? Okay. If I had said to you at the start of the year. Hey, man, they are going to have to Play the Padres in San Diego against Yu Darvish, who is rolling like 11 and one in his starts. Rolling And that's going to be there like four guys that weren't You couldn't have name those four guys. Do you know why the Padres were a great bet there? Look at that lineup. Looks like the lineup after you've won the the division in there before and what's wasted. All right, You guys get the plate and that's what that looks like. Right? It looks like the lineup after you've won the division. And so that's why the difference between now and April is put that out there in April, See if it comes to one. You have no opportunity? No, almost no hit with that lineup, But now they're playing. As Anthony said, Well, ask him again tomorrow with this chip on their shoulder. And it is Can't wisdom Ortega are Contra Higgins. Four. Your starters. Keep in mind. The Cubs just scratched out four hits in that victory, But the difference between April and now is, is that you found a way to win. Otherwise, you're just folding the tent like, Yeah, we're gonna lose this. And you realize that their bullpen came in Rex Brothers, your guy Rex Brothers, Rex brothers, always holding the game an inning. Didn't walk him in and give up a hit two K's 18 pitches 11 for strikes. Then they go to to Pere. It's guide, then, just phenomenal two innings, no hits, no walks. 24 pitches 16 for strike and three punch outs and then Kimbrel comes in and is literally unhittable. He's throwing 99 on the inside portion on the black of the plate and No shot. Yep. No shot And I was argue with Gordon Witmeyer, the other day G Dub G dub cub from NBC Sports, Chicago said that will be the first guy they trade. Hold on a.

"Like I need to see the offense continue to do what they've been doing, but answer his questions like how many pictures like I told you is one If you one step closer, because you my only need one more starting picture when you look well. If you if you're Darvish was still a part of this rotation, you might only need one more. And if you only need one more that completely changes the dynamic of what you want to do at the trade deadline. Yes, I think if you got went and got Max Scherzer, let's assume you didn't have to tinker with your major league team. And you could go get Max Scherzer. Don't think he even if he himself Yes, yes. Doesn't put you over the top. It does not also depends on what I'm giving up too, because I can't give up my minor league capital. For him for a one off because he your top minor me? Yeah, Yeah, No, that's fair, honey, but I'm if if you Darvish or Max Scherzer at the front of this rotation doesn't make you a World Series contender. Then they really need to be trading off all their assets. This shouldn't even be a discussion well, because you're not going to add more than an aced like you're not adding to frontline starters to your rotation at the trade deadline. No team does that because today cap playoffs start today, cubs are in the playoffs. So Hendricks is your one and your two is I don't know. Okay? I don't know. So what about your not even Alice ally with the blister? You're not even sure what that is yet correct. I still need to see more from like. In a month and a half. When I make this decision is Patrick wisdom still in my lineup? Is he still raking? I don't know. Exactly so I got to let this play out. Was texting with Sylvie yesterday because he was saying, if you're like four games over two games over or two games back then And start the next wave. Then I went back and pulled up. July 22,000 and three The Cubs were 49 48. They were in third place. They were 4.5 games back in the division, and Jim Hendry went. I got a couple good young pictures. Her name wouldn't prior that are healthy. I'm all in and he went and got Kenny law often because they had lost Corey Patterson to the knee towards a CL on a wet base, trying to beat out an infield it remember that and then. They said. You've got to take the money for this third baseman Aramis Ramirez. Well, he had a great run here and all of a sudden Bartman play notwithstanding, that team should have gone to the World Series threat. And they didn't but they tried so because you're 49 48 July 20th doesn't mean you can't make a run. So let me see where we're at in five weeks. I just That is fine. But I'm just saying, you add a front line started to this rotation and you still believe it's not enough. Then you need to. But in five weeks, I might think it's enough. But the thing that is suspect to me as I've been saying here The spring. Going into the summer is I don't know what offense I'm getting. I've seen the same in attitude offensively from this cups team. That's my point when I need them to hit. They give me two runs or less. This is a nice run right here where It's like they're keeping the line moving. Result Looks good. Brian looks great. Brian right now is an all star. There's no doubt I like Willson Contreras. But the thing is, how do we know Jeff? Because we've seen the same song for five years. How do we know? Listen, I can't tell the future. You're right about that. But again, I feel like if you've come to that conclusion, the The problem, right? You're right, by the way, because you say if you had a front line starter, and you don't know what your offenses then what are you doing, and that's I think that's where you're at. Like, if that's not enough. You're in a very bad spot because I'm telling you like they're in first place and let's fast forward five weeks. I don't know how much more clarity you're really going to have. The The reality is Patrick Wisdom is not going to be hitting 400. But he still may have enough power where you're like, you know what he's about in my lineup that I like. And so all of a sudden, the lineup has lengthened out. And I think you can kind of result Brian Contreras. You know, the They have a history. I feel like Kris Bryant is finally back and healthy, and I trust that he's close to the 2016 MVP caliber player. He showed it. I just think he needed to be healthy. I believe in Kris Bryant at this point, I don't think that's an Atlanta It's not outlandish. Absolutely. Friso Contreras. You know if you can get a few of the hurt players back, you know and add them. You don't need a whole lot. We all know it's the pitching. It's the frontline rotation. But if you Darwish is not enough, then we have a huge problem here because you're not going to get a guy as good as you Darvish at the trade deadline. Okay, Fast forward five weeks if this offense is still continuing to play what it is, and the number one starter might be enough, But can you promise me Ryan to Pere Tommy Nance? Like I believe in Kimbrel, but he's proven it. Andrew Chafin like brothers, Rex Brothers, like Are these guys five weeks from now, still going to be top three bullpen in the National League? Maybe. Maybe not. And we also again what we talked about earlier in the show..

"Um Steve was a huge part of the band for eight years. He can no longer be part of it. We felt compelled to pay a tribute to him. What a great idea and hopefully it will be jam packed The The wrestler Ric Flair. Who's Steve McMichael wrestled with after his NFL career will be there also former bear Trace Armstrong, among others, so hopefully they'll have a very big crowd out there. 7 42 Glad I didn't stay up for the end of the Cubs game. It looked okay in the beginning, but that's the first time the bullpen messed up in quite a while, isn't it, Dave? Yeah, it, uh Percent. It was pretty much all around just not quite as crisp as they've been, and Rex brothers came in, gave up a three run homer after Zach Davies ran into trouble in the fifth inning, but the bullpen I think that's only the third time the last 24 games they've allowed to run. I'll take that. Yeah, I think you would like your chances in that that circus a lot of home run activity on the South side last night. That was pretty cool for solo homers and, uh, got going in the first with Moncada. And Tim Anderson hit the last storm in the eighth inning, and Lance Lynn did the heavy lifting with six innings. And Lynn he It was really put together some historic numbers so far. I mean, right now, you probably It's really early and there's over 100 games to go. But if you're looking at Cy Young candidates in the American League, he'd be right there for sure. I was watching a little of that game. Lance Lynn. Um, he doesn't miss many meals, does he? He's He's a big boy. He's said he's got some power. Yes, you've got to have some power behind that, right. The socks pin stripes are a good look for him. Although I know last night they had the, uh, the solid black top. Uh, he should go at the full pinstripe. Does the picture still get to accept the uniform? He aware that the guys were in the tradition? Yeah. And they gotta they gotta get out of this injury jinx. Now, Andrew Vaughn's on the isle. Well, that's because of covid protocols. And so they're hoping that They're just going through the process, But Rick Hahn said yesterday that he's a symptomatic so they're hoping they can get him back relatively quickly. That would be good. It's 7 44. We'll get to the worst thing. Chicago politicians have said on a wiretap and will play a couple of those for you momentarily. Right.

"Very well could be the reason for Ah lot of these injuries because You know you had a start and then a stop and then a start and his shortened season and then come back and try to be normal. He he seems to think that maybe next year, this all kind of even out, but he Claims that that maybe the reason we're seeing so many injuries and it's really you know, we have some really deep injuries on the South side in that Two of our star players. Obviously the Cubs are dealing with how many did he say? How much I know he's got five. Yeah, They got five guys who hurt right now right now, So that's that's an extraordinary um, I think further for the season they had, like, didn't have 11. Ryan has had to miss some time controls, Mr Kerry obligate. Obviously, Rizzo's dealing with it Now with the back. The pitching really has leased. The starting pitching right has not really suffered, which if one of those guys goes down, then you're really gonna be Looking for someone to step up as that last guy in the rotation, but they skated by with what they've got. So far, both sides of town definitely have gone a little deeper than they thought they would have to because of injuries. Yeah, they have yesterday, Jack Peterson to for five. A couple RB eyes. He's got his average up to 2 54, which you wouldn't say as much, but he was hitting so poorly. At the very start of the season, and now he's actually you know, making some things happen. Cubs had comes with six for 14 with runners in scoring position. Cincinnati one for 11. You know, that helps. Yeah, it helps that covers a lot. Um But yeah, in the bullpen yesterday. Let me see here. The bullpen. Game. Oppa run. Rex Brothers gave up a run, but they went one of four innings. One run three hits on day struck out six. So the wolf part of brothers taps into Pera Wick and Mabel's doing the job yesterday as a company get the 10 to win. It was a close game until the Cup, scored four in the seventh, one of the eighth. I'm sorry for the sixth, one of the seventh and three of the eight say scored eight runs over the last three innings and go on to a 10 to victory. 3123323776 you want to jump on in I mentioned before. Right before noon that they announced that there's going to be a Golf match coming up, Okay, and it's going to be Phil Mickelson, Tom Brady. Against His name is Shambo Brace. Indecisive. Yeah, bracing to Shambo and Aaron Rodgers. And my first response when I heard this the other day when Randy Americans jumped out with breaking news Here on the station. My first response was let me guess. Who cares? Who cares now? Last year it was semi interesting because there was nothing going on. Okay. You had no sports going on right now, if you like hockey or basketball. You've got hockey and basketball. If you like baseball, you're in the middle of the baseball season. If you like football, you're like Deon Miller said earlier. Today, we had around a 10 o'clock. The Bears have practice this week Veterans Rin in for training camp this week. So you've got everything going on? You don't need to see Michelson and Brady against the sham. Bowen and right. We don't need to see it. But you do know that it's ah sort of brilliant what they're doing. They're obviously trying to use NFL players high profile NFL players to bring into the game of golf Now, I'm not going to dispute that We've got a lot of other things happening. But that's why they're doing it. And I think that you know, I think it's kind of a good idea. It's not going to get me to watch especially with Brady in the storyline now. I mean, not Brady. Oh, Rogers in the story line right now. You know that's big stuff, so I get why they're doing it. And I understand the idea and I think it's very smart isn't going to work. I don't know. That's why they're doing it. Yeah, it's just If there's anything more Why do you want to watch a couple of quarterbacks play golf? Because you're a football fan, and you're a casual golf fan, and you want to see what they're going to do. I mean, I I get why they're doing this. I just don't know how successful it is going to be. I thought it made sense last year because it was something for us to watch. But this year when everything else is happening, you don't last year If you had something going on in the last ends, I mean anything had the chance to stand out because it was a vacuum. Yeah, this year is a different story. But again, that's why they're doing it. Yeah, they threw the last hand side and they rushed it a little bit and I still would have been happy. If they would've showed one episode of weak It would have lasted 10 weeks instead of just five. You can go rewatch it and watch every single speech. All of it and how I know I'm sure Tyler doesn't There's there's some companies out there. Um Netflix does it a little bit. I know that Disney Plus doesn't lot but they'll have shows no release him once a week. Just like we always does that. Yeah. HBO and Showtime. Where you know, instead of Amazon, Prime and Netflix. They release the whole syriza once like Cobra, Kai, Season four. There was a little teaser the other day. Who is that someone else? No, not yet, but someone else is coming back from back in the day. I got a cobra Kai, but it's great. It is possible. Yes, I watch. I watch multiple see? I don't mind that they do that because I have the choice to stop or keep going.

"Wait. A couple of callers who couldn't hang on. They wanted to talk and they were quite upset that they comes. Moved Yu Darvish before the season. And me. Being a White Sox fan can only imagine how come fans felt when they did that. Because it does feel Brian when you give up a guy that was so good last year. Four. Like you said, a bunch of young players. That's a wife flying trade before the season that straight before it starts and you look at it. One guy was going to say that Darvish isn't that big of Darvish is five and one this year with 1 75 year, eh? That's pretty good. Yeah, it's not bad. Last year eight and three with a 2.1. So Darvish has figured it out after this first year, his first couple years with the Cubs didn't pitch all that much. The first year eight Nate when he came over and 18 that in 19 6 and eight with the 3 98, which still is an awful file. We know we if you watched it It didn't look like yourself 400 A. He was looked a little worse than that. But the last two years combined these 13 and four so he's doing. He's pitching. Well, the Padres having really good team. All right. E was sawing, Eric. Um One of the wagers on, um The service. I I used that rivers because they were the first one here in Chicago. So plus they had you put into 50 will match it to 50 size. I'm on fanduel and and MGM and okay, you could you could join six others and get All sorts of matches and bonus. So it makes it its tell us how valuable each customer is. Because if you do it unless you're listening to the ads, couple because I'm telling you, I'm not even kidding here. If you're listening to their place, and this is not easy to do. Carmen, Mike, Mike and Carm. I mean, they put a lot of thought. And I know Mike has some systems, everything else. They don't just throw stuff out there and hope it sticks their record right now. I mean, for the last two months is unbelievable. Yeah, they've been really good. Um, last night. I bet it was top teeth more than 1.5. RB eyes. It was plus 3 25. And he said, Okay, that sounds good. Earlier in the week, I had the same thing. It was a run scored and a stolen base. 18 50. Put $5. I think with 47 bucks. He had that like early last night. The game goes into the 10th inning. OK and Machado's at second base. The Padres are winning 3 to 2 in the 10th because they just going to run. And up comes Fernando Tattoos. What do they do? They walk him, so I went to bed. I go. Okay. It's 3 to 1. The 10th. Nothing else is gonna happen. What happened was the it was tied up, then the bottom of the inning. The Padres come up in the 11th and scored seven runs and top he says a sac fly. So I get a second. FBI while I was sleeping, so you're making money while you're saying that's the way it's supposed to be, isn't it? Yeah, you go to sleep, figuring it's a lost cause you wake up and you won 30 bucks or whatever, because there have been many times where you're sitting there and sweating out, especially, you know what's still the adage Life's too short to bet the under I don't need support. Yeah. So you're sitting there, you know some garbage three in a basketball game. Or, you know, there should be dribbling it out. And if Tony LaRussa was your coaching basketball you you would have to travel it up some dope decides. Well, I'm guy got the lane. I might as well just go ahead and get an easy basket just because And there goes your under by by one point or whatever. Yeah, so you can stay. You can stay up on beat yourself up and sweat it out or you go to sleep, and whatever happens, happens, You don't have to be watching right And that's that's what you could do what you're like. Like the biggest bet I made. I think, since I've put the money in, there's a $20 bet. I never make more than that. That's $5.10 dollars $20 the most. So let's live in the home runs yesterday since I was picking three or four put $3 at each because if they hit him You're going to get 30 bucks because of the way the odds were so real quickly before we get too bad on the phone. Let's go to the poll questions that we put up here. Adi s ad Twitter at ESPN 1000 most underrated White Sox pitcher for to choose from Aaron Bummer. Dylan sees Garret Crows Shane or Jose Ruiz and the most underrated Cubs pitcher. Some of these guys, you know, one of them. You may have recognized their name before the season. Rex brothers, Justin Steal Ryan to Pere or Dan Winkler. Those of the pictures for the Cubs for the white sacks. You can vote out that at on Twitter at ESPN 1000 Let's go to the South Side and Ben Ben what's happening today? Hey, Good morning, guys. How you guys doing doing great. So my question is or my statement some of quest somewhat question. If you know I'm on the Sox fan 100% true and true, the jerseys being my uncle, We're trying to figure out where we combine from yesterday. But anyway, that to the side, I think they're just steps, right? I think you're getting this June 5th. They're available. Pretty sure it's the first week in June. Yeah, I think so. Week. Why they I think you've done by him now. I don't know We're working on it. But anyway, I'm sure your explorer will let us know before we're out of here. On B. So I would I feel self somewhat bad for the Cubs fans because they're kind of like in between right now. If you had Lester and Darvish, and then you add the area to spend a little bit of money. You didn't know what this year is gonna be. So you're playing devil's advocate. If we had these guys will be way better. We be contending, But at this point right now, you don't really have a World Series team. So if I was Cubs fan I'll be like, Get rid of, or trade. Um Um, right, Brian and then the pitch. I s, uh not by is I would keep by us because of trade. The two guys, um, the two guys to rebuild you and you could be contender for year. I would love this contender for years. I would love to see a unhealthy Erie's I'm in my life. Oh, yeah. Unfortunately, I would love to see in Chicago. A beat on fire way more than the bulls in there. Six championships in the Bears and 85. I got to see all that. So I was just like one in like what? What do you guys really think of? What should that comes to worry about this year or worry about forever? Well advantage. It seems like we appreciate the call. It seems like they're worrying about the future. But you know it's difficult for Jed Hoyer. You know, you mentioned that, he said. We could be buyers and we get to the trade deadline and it's.

"Is broken. 18. This is 21. You've done very little to fix it. So see Theo's model as he watched him with the Red Sox. Living with the Cubs here is that he knows when to pull the trigger sooner than later. Right. Usually, his whole thing was, if you're over, 30, you know, maybe we get a younger asset for that. He tried to Garciaparra, who was a legend. Is he dead? In New England, But he knew window pull the trigger. He knew when to do that. And with the Cubs, it just seemed like he settled in there with that World Series championship, And that wasn't that wasn't great. One of my biggest criticisms is not growing the farm system and not knowing when to pull the trigger and say We won the World Series. We fall short, we fall short. Okay, Now we need to change here and 18 maybe a 1920 19 when you still had, you know, multiple years of control left? Yeah. Now, maybe had the pandemic not hit that they were going to do something. He has maintained they were having high level discussions. Nolan are Renato and trading Chris Brian, Move it breaking it up, and then the pandemic it Yeah. Pre pandemic something should have happened with the cup. Agreed. 100%. So, here we are, my friend. We're through 40 games 20 and 20. What do you know about your ball club? Exactly what I thought they are, And then if they continue to play like this They will trade Craig Kimbrel, I think will be the first to go because he's a real quality arm. You'll get something back. And you'll start your rebuild. Now Who's your closer? Alec Mills, Rex brothers. Rex Brothers. Yes, that's why Rex brothers is a good name. Sure. I don't know who they're going to run out there. Do they bring someone up from the farm system? They bring Breslin Marquez up. So we're gonna let you close because I think they wanted to be a starter. Probably not. I'm going to keep my eyes on the marquee network because they're showing Iowa games now, so I'll let you know in a few weeks, right? Is there, filly? They're filling time on that network. They want Justin Steel to become a starting pitcher. But he throws 98. Maybe you let him close this. I don't know what they do, but I think This is truly what this team is. And usually 40 games tells you what you are. Yeah. You have average ball here on average team. So move who you gotta move Sino. You've gotta sign know what your needs are going into the offseason and then look at the White Sox and go out. They may have a ton injuries. They're finding ways whether we bludgeon you whether we score on a wild pitch. Somehow, some way they're finding away every night to find a way to win by the way and use record bass. And you know what you said. You said that if you're the Cubs don't wait until July. Like if you know what you are, By the time we get to Memorial that you said, let's start making trades. Now, if if judge phone rings today, right now he's listening to the show, which he does. And he's like I got to take this. Hello? Yeah, this is Brian Cashman. Hey, man. Chapman's Got this or this guy's Got that make me a deal. I've got players in the system. Make me a deal. I need Kimbrel. I need Bryant. I need Whoever it is Done. Let's go because this is not the foundation of a champion. It's not Have do it now, before you get a full ballpark booing you. Do it now, before you have other teams make that decision that Yeah, we're not good enough either. So wait a minute. Don't make the trade with the Cubs. I'll give you This guy? Yeah, I'm just like you want to do it the way it's happening now, because you know, Cup fans will will not tolerate this. They're not going to tolerate you taking apart the ball club in a major market, but I would say that if you're gonna make a move Do it now, But I think they will tolerate it least I'll speak from my seat is a Cubs fan, Theo that if jet announced today hey, man, We just don't think it's a good enough team. We got a great offer from whatever team it was. We made this move. We got young players and it might hurt for a little bit, But this is the right path. Value. They already did it once you're not doing the job, right, If you're not a seller at this point in time, you kind of know what this is. It's been what it's been for The last few years is too bad that comes or not contenders. But it's just That is just too infrequent for this ball club to be able to hit. Give you that spark that you need. You got a little bit of it in the month of May cap. It is just It's just not enough. You're too close the pirate to say you're going to contend. I know it's early, but still we've seen this movie before. Coming up with this is do you look at that team and go? That might be a world seriously. No shot, no shot, and that's what you're in it for. That's what you're in it for. The Sox pounded pounded the Twins last night and the twin broadcasters None too pleased. That's next. This is Kath and Jay Hood on ESPN. 1000, Chicago White Sauce Baseball. Casper and Darrin Jackson. Bring you all the action. Tough play of radio. He's out..
