"And, and that, like opened me up to books after books, and now, basically later in my life is where I've really been reading a lot more. So that's been kind of a fun way to kinda get into it because I don't have to worry about like being able to afford it. I can't afford. It was great. Yeah. And then the apps have been the best because whatever you're interested, and you can kind of deep dive in. And when we were been writing a cosmic ghostwriter, we've been kind of exploring all of Marvel's history. So it's been opening up this world of books that I've never even like conceived or heard of and that has been really amazing kind of gift to keeps on giving. Yeah. We were at sea two in Chicago this past weekend. And we were doing a panel for just people who are marvel unlimited, plus members, like there's a special level. And so they come in, and we were talking about different books and teeny. Howard, one of our writers. She's doing a book with Ariel Olivetti, and so like my brain. Just starts going into these people have the like they live and die by the app, right? Yeah. So, like I always like throwing out suggestions, I was like, oh, if you guys like areas work, and we were showing it up on the screen. It was like, oh, you can go check out venom space night, which was really, really cool. And like Robby Thompson the writer is, like, nobody read it, and I was talking to me. But I love that book. But you see this is why I feel like that app needs to be a little bit more curated like the way that they used to do not Netflix. But that cool like movie. That was out for a little bit film struck. I feel like there should be like some more like you should have a front page or more. Like, if you like this, then this a little bit to help you deep dive tailored to what you've read and what exactly what you hundred what you're going after because there is that from page, but I feel like it is something where there's such a wealth of books and for us and going to cosmic goes red. We were trying to tell stories that we weren't that you hadn't heard a million times, and they feel like that's the good stuff where you find. That you're like, oh, this is fantastic. It's like a great buddy cop thing between like daredevil and spider, man. And I'm never read it, you know. But it's buried down deep. I mean because at the time when you know marvelous putting out like what like fifteen Spiderman, but at the same time, you know, so you just like you could lose track of it. Yeah. Best at a point where, you know, your kid you get afford to be chasing down all those books. No. Thankfully back then when we were kids ever, like a buck and a quarter. But now there are a lot more. I know more women is amazing. Yeah. So you are writing cosmic ghostwriter destroys marvel history, which is super fun. You in Nick juvenile. Yes, Nagin, I've kind of work together on a handful of marvel books so far, and it's been really fun. I mean cousin ghostwriter I think is one of the the best new characters in the marvel universe. And it was super daunting to kind of take him over, especially the first person take him over because everyone loves donning, we've got to work with Donny. Casey original creator of it. And and he was really good. Been helpful, but it was kind of fun to find out the format that he fits in, because it's it's it is a relatively new character in the we've seen ghost rider before guardians was kind of, in a in a really fully fleshed out story. It was it was much more of a movie than kind of break them up and find different angles tomb is been as been fun..

Just nothing you can do about it. It's it's really really unfortunate. And so, you know, then I look ok well, they need a belt fight. This is a paper view that you almost every pay for you. That you go fight almost nobody's available. Look at the roster. You can go through them. They're not available. Right. So real. Hey, that's why they're pushing her hard they need somebody.

"This guy grew up watching like when I was in high school in college favorite player and he's walking over to be right now. He's about to say, wait, a sling it or something he goes. Hey, keep that shit up. You're going to get somebody killed. A what? He goes, you re land sides keep that shit up. You're gonna get somebody killed and I go I'm not doing anything. I just got called up. And so I'm like, oh my God. Here's my told Robbie the story we laugh about every. Yeah. So he's pissed at me. I ended up getting third base in Matt Williams. The guy who I grew up idolizing. San Francisco giant northern California says the same thing to me. So this is one of my first experiences on base against the team. I grew up rooting for as much expo. I'm hearing it from Robby Thompson, I'm here from that. So something I actually did in my lead naturally looked like I was relaying science just gotten called up up. So there's no way I would ever done it. And I only did a handful of times at the major league level because guys really didn't want it for the most part. So yeah, that was that was my introduction to my idols, Robby Thompson. So I understand the mechanics of what you're describing where it's standing on a base and not standing on a base something subtle like that where the better would just have to look to the side and see the guy second. But when we're talking about a technological method of doing this if there's video involved if there's someone in the stands how is their time to get that in for relate to somewhere on the field. And then have it transferred to the better in a way that enables him to actually absorb it? And then apply it how does that is? I mean, that's what I I think we both Jeff, and I always think when we hear about one of these elaborate sign stealing methods. It's like how is there even time to do that? How does that work? I mean, I I don't know. I don't know even the app watch is on the bench. And the only way I think it could work, and I have no proof. It was stupid back of the plane drinking beer conversation. When I was in Los Angeles dodger we always used to joke. What if we put a sm- all your piece in our ear and somebody sat in the clubhouse with a walkie talkie or something just fastball? And then we all conversation. We'd be like there'd be a play at the plate. I'd tumble. This thing would fall out of suspended. Any what if technology so much greater than two thousand one my last year in the big leagues? What if you did put a small earpiece in your ear like way deep down that could come out in any way? And you had somebody saying fastball away. I mean with the millions of dollars at stake for your career and.

"And it's all the greatest players in the world that if you let anything clutter your mind, you know, you guys know how however many milliseconds it takes to make decision to hit. A baseball. That's coming ninety five miles an hour. And if you're thinking about anything else, but Siebel hip ball. It's just not going to happen. So there's a whole mental side of it. If you think your tip into the relating signs that gets people's ads. So it seems like teams are sort of incentivize. If you're talking about a rival pitcher, you're sort of incentivize to get that into thinking that you're spying on them thinking that you have signs, especially maybe you just had a good game against him. Or if you have a pitcher, let's call him. I don't know Luis Severino just had a bad game bad stretch of games. If you're the Yankees. Maybe you don't know what the reason is. But you'd be incentivized to say, hey, we think you're tipping your pitches. Let's make the slight mechanical tweak. He doesn't know if that's going to make a difference. But if you let him think that it's going to make a difference. The naked mentally put him at ease is this sort of on the right lines. No. Yeah. You guys are onto it. Plus having. I wish we could Mike up a major league dugout for a game. I mean, we we would scream we got your pitches. We got everything we know. What's coming scream it or you're scared? You're scared. I mean guys are yelling at pitchers. I don't know if it's. Day. Who knows today they all love each other Facebook friends. I don't know if it's the same the way it was back in the day. But we would sit there. And I mean when I was with the Oakland A's in two thousand one with Terrence long Frank men Akito we'd all be on the top step screaming at these guys. Like, we got every pitch your fan in your glove on your change. And just even if we didn't in just getting people's the mental side of the game is is is kind of the divider like a PGA tour. What separates guys on Sundays. The guys are mentally tough. The you know, the guys that are there into the visualization the breathing that are strong, mentally and the other guys usually can handle, you know, walking up to eighteenth fairway on a Sunday with at one shot lead. And the putt for par to win. You know, that's the separator divider. And I think at the highest level what separates good from great the same thing. The guys that can block out that noise. Whether it's something that somebody told you earlier in the day, something that you see in the heat of battle with run on second base. I've seen I don't wanna say what pitcher pitcher that I've covered for many years that doesn't play for the nationals anymore. Step off three. Three or four times the run around second look right at the runner and have that kind of derailing in the course of start that he thought a guy at second base was stealing signs. I can see it every night guy from from the booth. It's something that I can't unsee as a player. I can see when guys are really size from second base. Kind of x Ray vision. I can see guys really inside the second base. I can see pitchers and pitches every day when I used to go to my son's game in high school and junior college every pitch. It was coming the whole game to sit in the stands watch. It. I do the same thing in the booth every night, sometimes I'll text out of the clubhouse. They'll say, hey, this guy's doing. This guy's doing that. If it's super obvious if they wanna know, and but I've seen it derailed pitchers that think guys doing it from second base. They'll call the catcher out the wave him out. They'll change signs but back in the day, if somebody thought you re land signs from second they would step off walk right towards, hey, m effort, you're going to get somebody killed if you keep doing that my rookie year, I was playing with the Expos and we play the San Francisco Giants and my favorite. Giant growing up was Robby Thompson, and he's playing second base. And we're in Montreal my rookie year for some odd reason I got the second base at night. And I'm thinking Robby Thompson, this is my idol..
