"The Bloomberg business of sports show a week explore the big money issues in the world of sports. I'm Michael Barr. I'm scarlet foe. And the imsa has an hour. The 2022 MLB playoffs are underway and boy there is a buzz of excitement surrounding this year's postseason. Major League Baseball unveiled its newest playoff format with now 12 teams entering the fray and expansion to four best of three wild card series and the race to crown the next World Series champion, bleeding into November. Yeah, if it takes place in New York, it's going to be a cold, cold series. And of course, the 2022 postseason format, not the only big changes that the MLB have implemented recently. Just a few months ago, commissioner rob Manfred announced new rule changes for 2023, and we're talking a pitch timer, limits on defensive shifts, and even bigger bases to name just a few. Here's a commissioner rob Manfred. We've conducted thorough and ongoing research with our fans and certain things are really clear. Number one, fans want games with better pace. Two, fans want more action, more balls in play, and three fans want to see more of the athleticism of our great players. The rule changes we're announcing today have been thoroughly tested and refined for years in the minor leagues. As usual, scarlet, on point, and luckily That's right. It was never in play. And then with the ship rules and everything else with the shift defensively, it worked. Guys were hitting the ball right into the shift and there was no action. So really, to implement these rules, it just had to pick up. We had some pictures that were taken 45, 50 seconds in between throwing a pitch. You know, they're looking at Michael signing. No. I don't know. Come on, that's garlic. Can you give me a better sign, okay? What catch should I throw dame and what we got? I mean, that's what happened. And we never got the bond place. So that's why we had to implement the rules and really get this going. And then the last part, you know, really got a tremendous group of athletes now, just like all the other sports, just generationally, the bigger, stronger, faster, and it wasn't being highlighted in our sport. So I think all this needed to happen. Yeah, all of that, what you just described contributed to this feeling or this sense that baseball is boring. Certainly compared to football where anything could happen on any given Sunday in the stakes are really high because there aren't that many games. Has baseball just complicated things by making the season even longer and I don't know rather than giving you the highlights MLB has just dragged it out for longer and added more volume to it. Well, yeah. I mean, we've been playing it long seasons for a long time, but it's perception, right? I mean, absolutely it seems like it goes on forever. The other thing I like is not in the rule change as much, but the new player format because the added more teams like you're talking about before, but the biggest thing was by June or July and this goes to your long season scarlet by June or July, we're headed to 80 some games and you already know what teams are going to be in the playoffs. And this keeps more cities involved more teams involved and wanting to hang on to the players, not as much movement. So I think that's why it was more competitive down the stretch as well. So all these things had to factor into changing the sport. Sahara, I mean, let's break it down here. You were an 87 80 at all. You were three time gold glove winner. You're the only player outside of Rickey Henderson to lead the American League installed stone bases during the 1980s. See, I understand the elimination of the defensive shift. I understand the pitch clock. Talk to me about the size of the bases. What a bigger base is gonna do. Oh, good question. What does that mean? Is that just, is that just mean that it's going to be easier for you to steal bases? Well, that's what the encouragement is. Three inches and baseball is a game of inches. So they played it and tested it and over 8000 minor league games. All these rules have been tested. The shift rule, the pitch clocks, and then also the basis. And they walked away feeling like it was more of a safety measure than necessarily the three inches closer to another base. We're first baseman warrant up the line getting hit quite as much and things like that. So that was kind of the thought behind it. I reacted the same way you did, Damian. At first bases. Except they could put sponsorship on the bases, the bigger bases, right? Hey, they can do a lot of things that you can really market. I mean, hopefully we don't turn into NASCAR with stickers all over the place. If it helps fans get engaged in the game, then we'll do it. But that was kind of the thought behind the basis. And one little caveat that goes with that is the pickoffs rules. Pictures now with a runner on, you can say you're on first base. You can only throw over twice. And if I go and make them the third attempt to throw her the first base, I either have to pick that player off or I lose a strike. It becomes a ball or a box. So they're really encouraging and forcing action. And that's what these rules are for. And I'll leave it with this one. I'll let you guys come back with another question on all the rules. Everything will be looked at and adjusted along the way, but just getting it on the bucks and getting guys moving towards these things. It's where we need to be. And then we'll make adjustments on what flies or whatnot. Maybe the bases need to be ten inches big. They're going to make adjustments along the way though. Well, you know what happens when you mix acids and bases? Okay, I'm sorry. I got to ask you about Aaron judge and the home run chase. Barry Bonds did hit a bunch of home runs too. Somewhere in the 70s, does that not count anymore? It is definitely in the racks of books. It's a real difficult one. Do you throw an Astor in there? None of those guys tested positive for steroids, even though we've had some admissions and we can all come to our own conclusion that it's probably leaning more towards steroid use than not. But it just comes down really to preference. I think everybody's open their own interpretation. Up next on the show, we continue our conversation with Harold Reynolds as we discuss more about baseball and what in the world happened to the mets. That's right ahead on the Bloomberg business of sports on Michael Barr and you can follow me on Twitter at big bar sports. And Tom on Twitter at scarlet fu. And I'm on Twitter at D sas hour.

So Don, we've used a bunch of labels now for our Manfred lawyerly, technocratic, all of this stuff that speaks to the bureaucracy of things. And one of the main critiques of Manfred also is that he is the owner's guy, right? He is not our guy. He's not the player's guy. He's not the fans guy. What did he say about that particular assertion? Well, you know, all commissioners work for the owners, right? That's been a criticism of Roger Goodell forever, a legitimate one. But Manfred said something to me about this that I felt was really quite extraordinary. He admitted he's a human buffer who absorbs most of the heat for his billionaire bosses and that it's a critical part of his job. He said to me, every time it's me, it ain't one of those 30 guys. That's good. Look who the hell am I? I don't have $2 billion invested in a team. I'm just a guy trying to do a job. I mean it. They deserve that layer. I believe they deserve that layer of protection on the face of the game for good or for bad. So this is rob banford kind of saying Don, what has always felt to me like the quiet part very loudly? Like, look man, I'm a meat shield, and I'm actually good at it. I almost fall off my chair when he said it, Pablo, and it's almost honesty to a fault. And I think and I think, again, it's Manfred attempting to explain his place in the world and saying, look, this is part of my job. Part of my job is to do this. I've got to take all the arrows for these guys and in doing that, I am going to be somebody that maybe is not as popular with fans and players as I should be. Owners are absolutely thrilled with his job performance and why wouldn't they be? The game has grown from an $8 billion sport back in 2015 when Manfred became commissioner to $10 billion now and even more for owners, franchise valuations have quadrupled in that time. Billionaires want into the game, Manfred told me expansions coming. He wants to get to 32 teams from 30 and Manfred makes $17.5 million a year and with bonuses Manfred has made more than $25 million. So he's very well paid to provide that layer of protection for the owners. Yeah, the economy of Major League Baseball done, I'm curious about that want to drill down on that a little bit more because you mentioned reasons to be optimistic about the billions of dollars that are flooding into the game. But I also understand that the NFL, the NBA, we consider them to be far more attractive business entities, overall, perhaps speaking to the regionalism of Major League Baseball and the trends associated with it. How concerned is Manfred about that notion? How concerned is he about the State of the Union? Oh, he's extremely concerned. You know, here's another extraordinary thing, Pablo, the commissioner of baseball thinks baseball is too slow. In my last on camera interview with him, it was in his office in May. I had a very revealing exchange with him. How many hours of baseball do you watch in a week? Oh, so let me count nights. And you know, he paused a moment and he said, I would say that I probably watch in the evening at least four nights a week, a game or game, so there's 12 hours, and I always have it on in the office, the MLB network games during the day. So in excess of 20 hours, but very interesting in that question is you doesn't say watches baseball Friday Saturday or Sunday. And when you watch baseball is a fan, what's your biggest aggravation? I think the same sort of sentiments that we hear from our fans in terms of pace of the game. Yeah, and on that, Don, I mean, I personally at least like, yes, please speed this up, like pace of play, feels like a problem to me. And rob Manfred on that is envisioning what in terms of concrete changes. Well, a pitch clock, which is probably the most revolutionary change that can be introduced to baseball because of course it's a game with no clocks and that seems almost certain to be coming to Major League Baseball next year. Manfred told me in no uncertain terms that he's in favor of it. A pitch clock is shaved off about 25 minutes from minor league games to an average of about two hours, 40 minutes this season. Is there.

"Back in 2014, when owners were looking to hire ceiling successor as commissioner, selig's endorsement of Manfred helped him get the job despite there being reservations among some owners. There were ten owners led by White Sox owner Jerry reinsdorf, who had opposed Manfred. Some of those owners believe that Manfred was too lawyerly and lacked the right temperament to be commissioner, a veteran owner told me selig was a guy who loved to eat hot dogs at the ballpark, loved the game, just exuded this folksy charm, Manfred didn't have that still doesn't. Donna, it reminds me of like the presidential candidacy sort of like smell test, right? Like, do you want to have a beer with this guy? That was what bothered some of the owners, but see you know, buttonholed a lot of those owners and persuaded them that Manfred was that guy. And as we're seeing 8 years later, that's still a case Manfred's trying to make. And so when rob Manfred is now in his tenure as commissioner, Don, and another wave of cheating scandals lands on his desk. Again, threatening the game in big ways. I'm curious how Manfred talked to you about the Houston Astros and the garbage cans and the banging and the video spying to steal signs. The players were given immunity there, very controversially. How did he discuss all of this with you? Well, it was a key part of his record, right? That he initially told me way back in Iowa that he'd rather not revisit during my interviews with him and who can blame him because it's really more than anything probably his handling of the Astros as well as the Yankees and Red Sox who are using video footage and Apple watches even earlier than that to steal signs. All the decisions he made about all of that, I think, has shaped the way fans have viewed him negatively more than anything else. And it's another area where he refuses to admit any mistakes. He offered all sorts of kind of defense table arguments about why the scandal wasn't easy for him to manage as commissioner. When a new problem arises, the use of electronics and sign stealing and you have rules that are not up to snuff in terms of dealing with this new problem, you have to manage that change. You have to alter the rules. The rules weren't clear, enforcement was extraordinarily difficult. When you think all the way through, and you have to give people notice, you have to get people to buy into the idea that stricter penalties are going to be applied. And when you do that, you end up with a system that works. So as he is sort of painting this complex picture of what was sitting in front of him, what do his peer say in response to all of that? Well, the owners defended Manfred's management of the Astros scandal, though they acknowledged it badly hurt the game. A few told me that Manfred had become overly concerned with due process while the cheating flourished a veteran owner said to me, could he have done more sooner, of course. The thing about Manfred is is that he's deliberate to a fault. A former Major League Baseball executive who worked very closely with him said he's too lawyer like. Whenever he's confronted with a crisis that requires swift action, he seems to move slowly. Yeah, Don, I mean, it feels like, again, to speak to the constituency, the voters, so to speak, of the Major League Baseball world, it sounds like they just wanted rob Manfred to say like they cheated. Very plainly and instead we enter, again, this sort of thicket of technocratic lawyerly lingo. Yeah, and I think that that's a big reason why fans have come away with generally a negative impression of him. They want a more straight talking commissioner who's outraged by this scandal that not only undermined the integrity of the game, it undermined the integrity of a World Series and they feel that these answers Manfred has given over the years is far too as you put it technocratic for their taste..

"For more than a century now, the commissioner of baseball has been one of the most powerful posts in American life. The first commissioner ever, kennesaw mountain Landis, was a former federal judge. And since then, the job has been held by a senator, a military general, a university president, and now rob Manfred. A lawyer and seemingly mild mannered bureaucrat who has become one of the most hated people in American sports. So today, Don van Etta takes us inside the world of rob Manfred, the tenth commissioner of baseball. A man who wants to explain himself in depth for the first time. And tell us what his job really is. I'm Pablo Torre. It is Wednesday, June 29th. This is ESPN daily. Everyone likes shopping online, but searching for coupon codes is kind of a bummer.

What's in your wallet? Savings and available coupons vary. Don, I hope people appreciate how difficult an interview. Any commissioner is to get really in the format that you specifically do your work. So how do you get rob Manfred to agree to sit down with you? Somebody who is known for specifically investigative journalism. So last August, he agreed to meet with me in Iowa, the field of dreams game. I pitched him an in depth profile, the foundation being a series of in depth conversations with them. And in that first meeting, I told him I wanted to figure out what the man for doctrine is, sort of, set of beliefs he has when making tough decisions, but also his vision for the game. And I think he liked that idea? Well, he's smiled at least when I said it. And you know, he is one of the toughest jobs in sports. He's unpopular with fans, but he's trying to revolutionize a game that is the most resistant to innovation. He was reluctant at first to cooperate with this profile, but he agreed to do it and he gave me an extraordinary amount of time. I met or spoke with him nearly ten times over the course of about 8 months, including interviews at the Hall of Fame, city field. We had several meetings at Major League Baseball headquarters in midtown Manhattan, and he opened up to me in a way that I don't think he's ever done before with any journalist. Yeah, I mean, what was your personal impression of him as a guy? How does that compare to again the public perception, the reputation that has been pretty well established from afar by now? I think behind closed doors, he's a lot more likeable and very, very different from his public persona. I really saw the difference at first in Iowa. The Manfred I met behind closed doors was down to earth. He was self deprecating, relaxed. And you know, in his many conversations with me, he's quick to blame himself for gaffes that cause him so much trouble and even in a sort of charming way, but he's also a lawyer who feels deeply misunderstood and despite saying he's thick skinned, he certainly showed flashes of being hypersensitive to criticism, particularly criticism he believes is unfair from players and media members. Well, one of the questions that you ask in one of these direct questions, these big questions that you ask him is, what is the biggest mistake you have made as commissioner? What's the one decision you'd like to have back? I have to narrow it down to one. I think people can't admit they've made mistakes particularly in a job like this or a little dangerous. And yeah, there is some of that self deprecation right there Don to your point. But the question I have still is whether rob Manfred is truly a commissioner who can admit his mistakes in a genuine way or if he is to use his own phrase a little dangerous. I think that's a great question, Pablo. Sometimes he offered lengthy rationalizations for some of his decisions. For example, Manfred got crushed last march when he stepped to the podium outside of ballpark in Jupiter and canceled opening day and then smiled at the camera. I had hoped against hope that I would not have to have this particular press conference in which I am going to cancel some regular season games. He got killed for it. But he didn't apologize for it. He explained it and had this explanation that it was a friendly gesture toward a reporter who had approached him to place a recording device on the podium. I walked out. It was a very windy day. There was a podium and there were microphones and recorders that literally covered the entire top of the podium. I had papers. I had nowhere to put them down and just as I got to the podium, this young man who was trying to do his job was coming up and he wanted to add one more microphone that was pretty large. What literally went through my head is don't make a face like you're annoyed at this poor guy who's trying to do his job. I only admit I was annoyed. Instead of making that face, I smiled at him to try to put him at ease in that was the smile that was caught on camera. On the other hand, after the Astros cheating scandal, Manfred gave players full immunity and refused to take away the team's World Series title, he got crushed from the players for not taking away the title and in an interview after the decision with ESPN, he referred to the roars series trophy as a piece of metal. The idea of an asterisk or asking for a piece of metal back seems sort of a futile act. And for that, he really regrets his choice of words and views it as one of his biggest mistakes. I do regret it. You know, I regret it because it's disrespectful to the game. And you know, I love the game. I would never want to do it. I regret it. For that reason I regret it because I was being defensive about something. I've decided. I think as I've matured in the job, that I've come to realize that you have to make your decisions articulate why you did what you did, which I already done with the Astros. And then after that, trying to defend it is the wrong approach. You just got to let people make their minds up as to whether they think you.

"Don van Ada you sat down with the commissioner a baseball rob Manfred nearly ten times so far this year, which is a conspicuously significant amount of access for a story about any major sports commissioner and you clearly did not shy away from actual tough questions, but one of them felt especially pointed. What did you ask him? I asked him, do you hate baseball? We saw repeatedly during the lockout that says, rob Manfred hates baseball. Seems almost preposterous to ask this. Do you hate baseball? It is the most ridiculous thing among some fairly ridiculous things that get said about me. That one does rub me the wrong way. I have to tell you the truth. It does rub Manfred the wrong way and it's because there is a large group of people absolutely convinced he hates baseball. He's bored by baseball and he's killing baseball. It's not just fans, it's many players that I spoke with, some agents, former executives, are all convinced rob Manfred does not have baseball's best interests at heart. He obviously found the concept of him hating baseball. The most ridiculous thing as he himself just put it, but the fact that the active commissioner of Major League Baseball is in this sort of public relations crisis of sorts. How did we get here? You know, in America hating sports commissioners has become a sport all its own. Yes. And there's probably no one among all the commissioners who get ripped and mocked, blamed, cursed, and memed more than rob Manfred, who's now in his 8th year at the helm of Major League Baseball. And really, I think a big reason why he agreed to do this kind of in depth profile is because he feels deeply misunderstood by fans and some players. There have been times when he has been a gaffe machine. And I think he saw this as an opportunity to set the record straight, not only to describe his love for the game, but to try to.

"He's really, he's really the, uh, the guy who gets stuck out there to take all the arrows that are shot that normally would be shot at the owners, they're shot at him, but there is still there, he's still has a job to do in terms of having the type of relationship where the players don't see him as they do right now. I mean, you just look on Twitter. These guys are not fans of rob Manfred. And I'm interested to see moving forward how he can address or possibly change. It could very well be that you're right, Cody, that the damage is done already, and that these players won't let bygones be bygones. But he certainly going to have a little bit of time here 5 years to try to try to make that relationship better. And we'll all be watching. Yeah, and I'd like actually make an argument here that rob Manfred is an exceedingly good Major League Baseball commissioner. And before some of you baseball fans who aren't fans of rob Manfred, get out your pitchforks and start yelling at me, hear what I have to say. It's that rob Manfred's job is more or less the commissioner's job at this point is being a union head chief force the owners. That's what the job is. And the job of the commissioner is to make the game as profitable as possible. Right now, Major League Baseball has never been more profitable and the owners have never made more money. Thus. Rob Manfred's incredible at his job. Which is why it's far fetched at the owners are upset with him, right? Because they're making more money than they've ever made in this game. And so as you perfectly put his job is to make the league more profitable for the owners. And he ties that in with having to have a relationship with the players that makes it amendable that, you know, when they need to make changes, everybody's all on board. The constant fighting and tug of war. I think partly because the players don't think he enjoys baseball. I mean, some of his comments haven't helped that, right? Whether it's the piece of metal or, you know, a slew of different things that a gaffe that he's had to this point haven't, you know, led the players to feel like he actually likes the game. And you brought up the NBA. You look at the Adam silver. There's no doubt that he loves basketball. There's no doubt when you listen to him talk. He loves it. I think that would go a long way for rob. If he could somehow display the fact that he actually enjoys the game, that he actually loves the game. I think that would give him some, he would get some equity from the players on that side, but he hasn't, he hasn't really displayed that yet. And to echo your point earlier, Matt, if Major League Baseball and the Players Association can eventually figure out ways to legitimately work together. And grow this game in the way it should be and could be grown. You know, a lot of things have been happening in baseball these last couple of years. A lot of minor league teams being slashed from the game. I feel like the game itself is being shrunk within our own communities, but we're talking about expanding the game outside of the United States, which is not something anyone's against, but, you know, I don't want to sacrifice the game here at home to grow it everywhere else as well, where I really think everything can grow, and that's, I think, something baseball is getting having a few issues with. But on top of that, new rule changes in this CPA, no more 7 inning double headers, Tony, I don't know about you, but I'm actually disappointed in that rule change. Me too. I was a big fan of the two 7s. I liked the two 7s and I'm also disappointed about the ghost runner being gone. I loved the rule. I loved it. I really did. I know you and I are in the minority. We are. But man, I liked it. It served its purpose. Its purpose was to have games and in the tenth inning and that went up 35% when it came to extra in games. I thought it added instant pressure situations. You know, all those purists that are upset about the DH and I'm using purists in the most extreme air quotations right now. But those guys that were all mad about the national league DH, which by the way, also finally added the Major League Baseball. I'm just glad that's finally over. But the people that were mad about that, you know, that extra, you know, the chance to do something as far as strategy was immediately implemented in that extra inning. So that's gone. And you know what the interesting and it's a moot point because they've gotten rid of the ghost runner, but come 2023 should rob Manfred decide that they're gonna eliminate the shift. It would have, it would have even had even more strategy to it now because now you can play some old school baseball, right? Where you're hitting the, you know, hitting the guy through moving them over because now you can't manipulate the field like you had been. And so I was disappointed to see that go, especially with some of these rule changes that seem like they're coming down the pipeline. And here's the thing. Let's get into that real quick. Let's talk about that upcoming potential rule of the shifts being banned. And quote unquote being Ben. I think there needs to be better verbiage described because it's not bad. It's not bad. It's adjusting the shift, making it that you can't have 11 outfielders and right field. And literal no infielders. And someone was like, can you imagine if they did this to football? And I'm like, yeah, how crazy would it be if the, you know, the ref stopped the play and called something like, I don't know, like, an illegal formation. That's so well, but I hadn't heard that one yet. But that's perfect. That is perfect. But I mean, listen, the rules, especially that one in particular. I think so many people are focused on, you know, taken away some of the analytical parts of it. Here's the thing. The one thing that we all lost with the shift and we'll lose it this year because I'm sure teams will still be shifting at as they have been. Is the ability to see some of the best athletes in the infield in our game. Like, there's no doubt. Go to you and I can both attest to this. The athletes in the game now are superior to the athletes when we were playing. I mean, I just retired in 2019 in the athletes are already in two and a half years. That's how I'm saying. Just a clips to what we were doing in 2019. Like, it's third. And we, and we were, and we were being robbed of seeing. The reason why we don't see a guy like a Brandon Phillips anymore is because there's no need for, right? Because you just put the guy where the ball is going to be hit and you just play it out that way. And although that's great for your team and wins and keeping runs down, it's not great for the spectator. I want to see somebody going the whole, give me a Jeter jump throw or whatever the case may be. I want to see that range. Nobody is probably celebrating this rule more than Joey Gallo, though..

"Sell way more t-shirts and hats and mugs and merchandise. Sure. That's their money. It's people interested in the Yankees. They got a bigger fan base. A lot of people care about the Yankees. They'll buy a mug, whatever. Harder probably to sell a, I don't know, Pittsburgh pirates, T-shirt, then a Yankees T-shirt. Let's be honest. But I wish baseball would force a salary cap where you take the TV money and prop up small market teams. If the rich teams have nobody to play against, then why does it matter if they sell a ton of merchandise? Hey, the Yankees all ton t-shirts, but they got nobody to play against. That honestly, I really would like to see them, I guess it's almost like socialism. I had fortunately, can we share the money evenly? I want to throw out a number. What about a $100 million? That's a new salary cap and baseball. And not only is at the salary cap, we're going to help make sure every team has a $100 million to spend every year. We're going to share the money evenly. I know there's already revenue sharing. Can we change it a little bit, make it even better? Something like that would help baseball. I hate the MLB because they refuse to change. There's a cultural system in baseball. It doesn't allow people to celebrate home runs, which is so stupid and the salary caps are insane. And you've got teams that are like Moneyball, remember that great movie, Moneyball with Brad Pitt and the book they wrote and with the Oakland a's did. It shouldn't have to happen. There's enough money in baseball for every team to have a $100 million suspend on contracts. But they don't share revenue very evenly. And they're happy to have the Yankees have a massive bloated salary, massive spending on players where the Oakland authentics have nothing to spend on players. And yeah, let's have this uneven balance and let's have them play each other. That's fair. It's stupid. I don't like it. And I wish honestly there was another league to cheer for when it came to baseball because baseball is a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful sport. Rob Manfred, MLB ownership, the culture and the MLB. It's driving me crazy and I desperately want to come back. I desperately want to find a reason to care and watch the MLB. But I just can't. And I please write and let me know what you think. But the lockout, the whole thing is ridiculous. I'm like, what? Why can't they figure it out? Play baseball games. Make it happen. I don't know. It's really, really irritating me. And I just have a lot of crocodile tears for the players. I hate them, they'll be owners, and I just honestly, I wish I could get into it and care, but I mean, I did enough to talk for like ten minutes about it, but that's my opinion on the MLB lockout and the fact that apparently they're canceling games to start the year. And also, I will say, I've been pretty anti player in this entire segment. Let me end this way. All the people that are mad at me about, oh, the players. Well, let's be clear, baseball players are the most valuable part of the league. I mean, you're not going to have an MLB without the people playing in the league. Which is why also honestly, I think this is weird culture and baseball where they don't like personality..

White Sox beat the New York Yankees 98 with a walk off homer in the ninth. The opening was kind of cool. Kevin Costner led to players through the cornfield onto the field. I I kind of dug that, and then he was on the field, and he did this little speech about 30 years ago. On the other side of that core, Um, they filmed a movie that stood the test of time. Thanks to that enduring impact of that little movie we had. It allowed us to come here again, and then he went on Is this heaven? And then, the crowd said, No, It's Iowa. It was kind of cool, though. You know Kevin Costner. I'm amazed how well he's aged. I mean, I was kind of. I thought it was like a flashback. You know, he looks really great. Yeah, and Jack Look, it was it was a good game.

"Like to just think that no matter what Rob Manfred does, he's an idiot. He's a moron. And everything is his fault. And this is the worst thing that's ever happened. This is nothing. Nothing. They just started doing it. First of all, Nothing is at its smoothest when they first start doing it. Nothing. Um, but the only reason it's been Any sort of controversy because you've had pictures acting like giant babies. Just Throwing fit. And acting like babies. That's why there's a controversy. Who cares? They're checking guys. Good. It shouldn't take long. You can't tell me. I watched that Otani clip a couple times so I could time it out. I think it was 24 seconds. Took it was 24 seconds from the time he started to be checked to. When he was in the dugout. I'm sorry as long as baseball takes And by the way, this is between innings, so they're going to commercial right? Like at the time anyway. It's not doing anything to the game. You know, the announcers are talking about some other side. Anecdote at that point about to cut the commercial break that 24 seconds is not adding to the length of the game. Or any of that stuff that people are complaining about. It's not. It's nothing. And You know, I I've talked about it on this show to like baseball players are relentless cheaters. It's wild. It's wild. How much cheating there isn't that sport. And How historically, there's so much cheating in that sport. I mean, Member when Gerrit Cole was first asked about it. He was basically like this has been passed down from generation to generation. The style of cheating. And you have corked bats and sign stealing and steroids and now sticky stuff. There's just something about baseball's culture that Lends itself to rampant cheating. Baseball players are cheaters, not all of them, but a lot of them. Mm. This is no different. I wonder if it's the Individual nature of the sport. That leads to that because It's batter against pitcher. And Therefore, like You know? Anything to get an edge to bring up your stats to increase your contract to win that one on one individual battle. I mean, it's a lot more lonely when you're out there by yourself versus as part of a team. In a sense, maybe the Astros we were too harsh on the Astros because at least they were cheating. In the the, uh Spirit of team. They're cheating was helping the whole team, not just the individuals. You know one guy. Do Androids or whatever. Yeah. HGH or whatever they were doing. Uh is I mean, look, it helps the team if an individual player plays well, of course. But That is more I think done for individual benefit than it is for team benefit. Least the Astros were doing it as a team. I mean, I joke around. I have my phone with the answers to and I'm not defending Them in any way they cheated. Just like all these other instances of cheating, So I guess I would say this If you had a problem with the Astros. And you had a problem with steroids. For either of those And you should have no problem with what Major league Baseball is doing right now with these checks. It is not intellectually consistent. Two. Have a problem with the Astros or having a problem with steroids. And not have a problem with Pictures, putting glue on their hands or whatever they're putting on their hands. And I'm not saying that Major league baseball Has done these checks out of some sort of Righteousness necessarily. Like that, all of a sudden they were compelled morally. To do this. When they weren't before. That's not what I'm saying..

So many things had to break or even before the inning started. I set myself. I was like tonight. Just feels like a chapman won't see why it just felt like a perfect time for chapman. Blown save then. He gives up the couple of heads and it seemed inevitable. The ball getting by gary. Even the last hour i thought for sure was a hit off the bat. Nothing that evening screwing us over his miraculous when the ball hit back to chapman with one out. What did you think what's going to happen is in my mind. I had him. Throw overthrowing. Gary i certainly was not seeing that why there was no way that ended. Well i play. Well you're supposed to. You're supposed to run it. The runner like you. Don't throw the ball. Like yeah way too fast. And gary and get again the gary. This is an unreal. Gary game despite him not starting the amp gary has to stoop. Chapman's throw and then make a both row third while not hitting the runner and wadis big boy. So it's like sometimes. That's a big talk to hit there. And i was i thought throw to. Gary was not going to get him especially after his previous bockel. Who said even who we just play this week The phillies yet gets the phillies in extra innings. I didn't think that was going our way. I'll review we. Were talking about before right before we start recording here but certainly i think if ladd is called safe on the field they don't overturn it and teach you made a good point that they don't have tons of cameras at this aaa park. So good for that but calling feels out ruled him out good stuff and then he ends up getting a line drive and they avoid second third nobody out something the yankees but do their season is like how second third nobody out down. One somehow find a way to not support in that type of way right like a base rate one hundred percent The guy that was awesome win started with gear coal in stark great first pitch for blasted by simeon an absolute no doubter especially if the yankees get one but in classic fashion baseload. Nobody out only get one Tim they contacted every it wasn't like a double players strike outs. And all that but didn't didn't have the right contact just had some contact never at back there but garrett cole fresh off of The controversy obviously pitch well against the twins. And we you know we're gonna get into all the spin rate. That's come out here in the new rules and all that but his rpm's from the jump were not the same This was the biggest drop off. He's had hears about two hundred mile two hundred. Rpm lower than his season average which is much less than his start against the twins. And this comes off of basically rob manfred send. You can't use anything on the mound asinine and we will rip him shreds and a little bit but overall eight innings to runs on the two homers which she always prone to give up no matter. How did he's pitching. He's always giving up home. Runs a contact but relative week contact. And once he got through those middle the middle innings us cruising. He threw what was in the eighth inning. He hit one zero. one point. five. Which i believe is the second fastest pitches ever thrown in his career and then he capped it off with a ninety five hour change that got the shutout which he gave a very funny answer i think lindsay adler asked him like did you throw it ninety five hundred change up and he goes yeah. She goes her gut reactions like how and he just like left right back at her. But like you know you you just had adrenaline pumping there. He you know. He had a lot of energy in the last. You could see us unit tank. There was some debate on yankee twitter. You send sending out for the ninth. I thought it was good. Call not to. I thought you can always tell him when he knows he's done he him throwing one zero one point five in the last inning tells me okay he knows this. Is it deputy attacks while traveling. Get the safe. But overall coal wasn't his like most dominant in terms of like wipe out stuff and swings and misses a. But he got the job done. Yeah this is becoming a pattern. Most we say he wasn't his tiptop cold tonight but he's still eat innings to runs against one of the best offenses in american league. Like you take performance. Yeah we'll hundred or strikeout obviously or is going to be that extra Magnifying glass on them. Because of everything with the spider tax would be nice to have that. Eleven twelve strikeout performance soon and show everyone hack into it with without whatever but eight innings. Few runs in a game that the to win. That's why pay for hundred point. Four million dollars one hundred percent. He even said i love this quote. F gaming spin rate is not. Everything can still pitch. Well if you don't have a high spin rate and i agree and young people were like. Oh he's going to be terrible crosses on his hands and knees praying that he is especially after the home runs. Oh all people thought you know. He was still going to be a wit what he say. Now the first. I now it's eight innings to runs against a team that put an eighteen against gets the red sox on sunday on martine peres day where they all fucking come themselves at boston at guys like almost five year this year. He's come back on earth but spin rate is not everything sure. He's not going to be thirty minutes every day. I mean all pitchers in baseball. Maybe jacob degrom. Because he's a cyborg and i don't even know like he doesn't use anything just god is now but he i mean just four perfect innings for this guy. I mean he is must watch appointments television if you have two. Tv's you put him on the second tv while you're watching the yankees if he's pitching because it's that it's that like pointing to television I truly hope he's not. He figures out his injury. And i know he's frustrated shit left the third left it for three today With right shoulder. Soreness which shoulders with pitchers not a good combination there but But back cole. He did say he had difficulty gripping the baseball And he's concerned about the league playing a player issues He spoke to glass. Now who i believe. He called after. The injury came out with glass. Now eased has a partial tyranny. Just and right flexor strain which comes off of is inability to. He's asked to grip the baseball now harder because he can't use certain substances And this is going to become an issue all over it because you're gonna have to grip harder. Just common sense there and he said he had difficulty gripping it and it makes sense and i he called class now which is interesting and obviously he's very big and play. Play rep player unions all that you know. He's he's just a crazy phenomenon that we're about to get into here. It's about to be an absolute train wreck throughout all baseball And everyone's going to have to adjust. Maybe besides jacob degrom but overall like you said you take Take an atings two runs the boss and he was there. Tonight's sure the spin rate was down. Strikeouts weren't there but control was for the most part I believe in his whiff saw. Let me see here. What was he had on a slider tonight. Eight eight whiffs on thirteen swings. That's a pretty good percentage Only two to whiffs twenty four swings on his fastball. His change it was really good and they kept saying that brought koni was like his changeup saved. Tonight it change. It was really good tonight and it got him a few of the strike outs and it helped him. Get through those middle innings. We trying to find himself and get back on on schedule there but Yeah some look out with his fastball. And the spin rate and all that and it's going to be with all the major league baseball throughout the year. But the real saver tonight from gear. Cole was gary sanchez. Gary sanchez is putting this team on his back. Now the win. You know like these two wins. He had a big hit in another big hit on tuesday night but comes off. The bench pinch hitting for hagi.
