"This is the sporting life on. Espn radio and the ESPN APP. Here's Jeremy Shop. The Milwaukee brewers would be celebrating now. They're fifty first season in Milwaukee. Of course we don't know when baseball is coming back. But the brewers are the subject of new book by Adam Mckelvey who's been covering them for. Mlb DOT COM for decades. He is a native of the Milwaukee area and his new book is the Milwaukee Brewers at fifty celebrating a half century of brewers baseball Adam. Thanks so much for being with us. Of course thank you for having me off so I gotta say I'm doing this with all due respect but I was looking at some of the numbers right. I mean the brewers I think over there fifty seasons in Milwaukee have a winning percentage of about forty eight percent which I think might be actually a little bit better than I would have guessed. And they've played a total in fifty seasons. If my math is right again I think of thirty postseason games. And they've won pennant no world series of course at Nineteen Eighty-two pennant lost in seven games to the cardinals and Keith Hernandez and that whole story was Bob Maclaurin who gave up the head to Hernandez in the in the big game in my right. That's right no rollie fingers haunts till this day right so so when you said about a project like this Your how do you do it when there? Aren't you know twenty seven world championships like a team that place in the Bronx for instance? Yeah we'll look. There still are a lot of beloved characters in the story of this franchise and I. I think that's what I tried to do. As much as possible instead of just recounting the history. I think people especially the many of the people who buy this book. No the basic history of the team the playoff years and eighty one. Eighty two and then Resurgence in two thousand eight. Two thousand eleven with the Prince Fielder Ryan Braun teams and then more recently led by Christian. Yelich you know. The basics are known but but to try as much as possible in a book like this To get into some of the characters that tell the story of this team and I think there are some unique things about this franchise and it it starts with the founding you know how many franchises can say that. They existed as an idea for seven days about seven days before they played their first game. But that's the amount of time between a bankruptcy judge in Seattle determining that the pilots after one year there could be sold to a group led by bud seal again Milwaukee Between that decision being made and the very first game the opening day at County stadium that was the night of March thirty first. Nineteen seventy two the afternoon of April. Seven nineteen seventy I. I just think that's kind of a remarkable starts and a fitting start for a team that then throughout the years and said you know some really interesting characters from George Scott and Gorman Thomas and more recently Ben Sheets Niger Morgan Just on some big time personality. So look you're right. They have won one. Tenant they are still chasing that world series and There's a parade there. There is a parade to tell a about. We can talk about that losing world series parade. But there's not a championship to tell the story of And I you know I I it. There still are stories to tell them. That's what I try to bite into. We're speaking with Adam. Mckelvey about his new book. Milwaukee brewers at fifty celebrating a half century of brewers baseball. And you know I mean you know it's easy for somebody coming from New York. You know where they've got twenty seven champions ships with Yankees and before that the giants and In the dodgers and the mets well it's been. It's been a long track for the mets too. But we'll we'll talk about that another time. But you know people forget when you talk about Milwaukee Baseball outside Milwaukee forget that there were some incredible teams there in the fifties and early sixties. How long were the days? What what was it? Fourteen years something like that. Yeah never had a losing season. led the major leagues and attendance on a number of occasions. I nationally franchise to draw two million fans. It was a town that fell in love with baseball. Aaron and Mathews and spawned debt. I mean It was a they had those great teams and they beat the Yankees. And what was it? The fifty seven world series right and then they decamped for Atlanta. What did it mean to Milwaukee to get baseball back in one thousand nine hundred seventy of course it meant the Seattle lost the team that had had for one year as you already said it was the that the city was big league again And you know it came at a time that her Cole had also brought the NBA to Milwaukee Just a year before and it was a big boost for town. That was really heartbroken when the braves left you know in in in reading about that I always known the braves left town. I never exactly need the history of that. How a team that has been so successful at the gate and on the field and as you said had so many hall of famers suddenly decamped and I learned through this research that one of the reasons Milwaukee lock the braves was they made a policy against carrying beer and people were so horrified of the notion of having to buy their beer at the ballpark. Let's do some really hard feelings. I'm sorry Adam only in Milwaukee I mean that's that's that is a great story you know. Can you picture wheeling? You're into the ballpark for for a long now. Look it's more complicated than that and I don't mean to oversimplify but that was certainly one factor and really before the brave even the camp but she was already trying to gather civic leaders. You know he's around thirty years old at the time To try to I save the braves. When that effort failed he turned his sights to bringing in almost immediately and other expansion team and you know he had so much heartache in close calls over and over there was American league expansion during that period between sixty five and seventy there was naturally expansion. You tell them watching Walter. O'malley announced the winner in mouth of a word that began with 'em and his heart lifted and of the word was Montreal. Feel heart was broken again He had a deal to buy the Chicago. White Sox from one of the Allen Brothers The other brother Nix. That deal hurt was broken again. So the way bud ceiling tiles that this idea of bringing the Seattle pilots as you said lasted only one year for attendance The ownership a at least one member of the ownership was willing to part with the team. It was as buddy tells it the very last chance and had that effort failed There may not be bigly baseball in Milwaukee today and a whole generation of fans including me would you know either becomes fans are twins fans or maybe just focused on the Green Bay packers. So it's a story of a close calls and sort of how I use. This history can hang on such a thin line and impact so many people in in the decades that followed Th that is sort of a story of this franchises. Though we're speaking with data Mckelvey is new book. Is Milwaukee brewers at fifty celebrating a half century of brewers baseball? And you got a foreword by Robin Yount a Hall of Famer. Shortstop center fielder off the top of my head Robin Yates easily. The greatest player in franchise history right usually yes easily. Easily Was He was? He full-time playing shortstop when he was eighteen. For the brewers yeah and again a story of right place right time. I think about that in my career sometimes. And how many of us have you know are where we are because of Sort of vet that idea just being ready when opportunity strikes you But feeling tells the story of a real battle within their front office in. Nineteen seventy three When the Bruce had the third overall pick and The GM wanted a pitcher from New York Scouting director really liked the shortstop from Woodland Hills. California and they battled in battled and battled and it was ultimately the scouting directors. Call Jim bomber. Who himself was who made it to the big leagues at age eighteen. He got to Select Robin. Yount in the following spring. And you're talking about nineteen seventy four. The brewers are still basically an expansion team. They've had very little success on the field and they get to spring training. Imagine was del Crandall speaking of the Great Milwaukee braves he was one of the core players of that team and He decided you know why. Not Give it a shot to the kid And Robin Yount had impressed At times in that Spring and they made the decision sort of near the camp that that's just give it to. Let's give him a shot in the Big Leagues. And you know really. It's it took years for robbing out to become the hall of Famer that he eventually became. It was really a four really. Disappointing seasons You set a club record as a rookie. That probably won't ever be broken for Arizona season at shortstop And really just you know didn't perform the bat until about nineteen seventy eight. So you know would it? Sometimes I think back when you look at players today in the social media age where everybody wants you know Mike Trout from the second he steps foot major league deal with how many hours four years of real struggling what would what would he look. What would his career look like in today's game? Would it be different? Would they have the patience to stick with an eventual hall of Famer? Sort of an impossible question to answer but one of the you know one of the best things for robbing out was that he was able to learn on the job. The next year the bruised brought back Henry an to Milwaukee he was a fantastic mentor for robbing out and Frank Robinson was also a great mentor on the Robin McDonald played. Winter Ball Frank Robinson and Robinson took to this kid was you know the sort of cool calm southern California. I Robinson really liked him and they'd have a couple of cocktails at the bar. Each night and Robin. Yount says that was a phenomenal influence on his career as well and and he blossoms into nearly the face of this franchise may you know. Maybe it's Bobby euchre seen. Maybe you can make the case for that abroad after the face of the team but For if you're talking about player there's no doubt that Robin young man who defines this sort of Understated blue-collar Loyal sort of town He was the player. That he's the face of this franchise. And I was just GonNa get to Bob Euchre before we go again. We're speaking with Adam. Mckelvey FROM MLB DOT COM. Who's been covering the BREWERS FOR MLB for twenty years? Nearly and that's forty percent of the history of the franchise. Tell me Bob Euchre story and then we'll let you go. Well his deadpan gets you you know my favorite personal bobby. You could story. There was a year one of the early years. I was covering the team where they weren't very good as you said for some of those years and in the two thousands and they agreed to let sports illustrated follow the team for like a road trip and it turns into this nightmarish road trip. They lost every game. I've injuries whatever could go wrong. Went wrong but when the piece comes out in sports illustrated there's this fantastic photo of the guys playing Ping Pong cool in in Miami In in the background is Euch in a very very stylish black speedo and this thing is published in the magazine and he picks them ribbon for it and I think it was like the next spring. Were just talking about an totally casually in conversation. This comes up and he goes. Oh Yeah my sports so strange Simpson issue for some reason that line just like stuck in my head forever and it and it's those types of little things that you will drop on you and you know you not even expecting you to laugh and then you spend the next hour laughing about that. He said I've said many times. You know it's a it's a it's a it's a joy to cover the T. When your team that that you follow makes it to the postseason Look Your Nas. Stick about covering this team doing the job as a journalist. But it's it's you know when the teams good it's it's a good thing you know you get to cover huge games deep into a lot of fun. I've always said my team could win the next ten world series or the you know I could cover the next ten world series of nothing will be as a thrill as just standing around the batting cage with Bobby. You could do this little job. Make you laugh. is a total joy to be around and You know I hope he gets there for a long time. This was supposed to be fiftieth season. on the Mike for the Milwaukee brewers his hometown team. Not exactly the way he envisioned Season number fifty going.

I-5 Series Game 6 Postgame Show

"I, all Henry Shulman air with a recap of game. Six of the interstate five world series, and not a fun one for the team of Northern California greats, the nor cows were three out from the first interstate five pile with Dennis Eckersley on the mound be hundred dollar, a bottle champagne on ice clubs in the home clubhouse at the coliseum had all the lockers covered with plastic for a celebration, and it was a celebration that didn't happen. Fred. Lynn's two run double off. Act tied the game three three in the night and southern, California wanted with a grand slam in the tent by Eddie Mathews off Dave Stewart good for seven to three victory, so the nor Kaos three two one series lead has gone the golden greats world. Series comes down to game seven oracle par a contest that they never thought they would say lefty Gomez certainly was the pitching star of the series after tossing six hundred innings of shutout relief into free, he blank southern, California for seven innings in game six, and got the nor cows through a even with bobby bonds hitting a homer. Homer for the first southern California run, so we bring in northern California manager Bruce, Jenkins and Bruce some of these pitching decisions of yours have have not worked out I mean, and this has been an offensive series, so it really has been tough I think in a lot of cases to pick these pitchers on. You didn't let lefty Gomez finish a jam, and you instead went for Eckersley. Who Blew the save? And then you brought? David Stewart in Dave Stewart in for redemption in the tenth inning after poor performances, a starter in game four and that turned disastrous. Let let's start with the decision to go to Eckersley at. Eight. Innings Lefty Gomez. Throwing one run ball what went into that decision well? I went against my basic nature there Henry. If somebody's pitching a Jim, the ratings and looks like he's in control I'm always once. I WANNA. Leave a man. I hate to see managers. Take out a guy who's throwing well because he's throwing a hundred pitches if you throw ninety nine by God, we're going to bring it back out there anyway. I like to see guys. Finish what they start, but here we are three outs away. Left going on short rest, and when you've got eckersley to close it out I I just you know that that's what I chose to do. I think either way I can live with it either I certainly can live with bringing Eckersley to close out the series. Okay, so that's not a decision. You lose sleep over right now. Not at all okay I mean. Mean Dennis Eckersley one of the great closers of all time and he had a two run lead. Even had you know a run to work with Abu Get to Stewart in in just a bit Let's go back a little bit earlier. This was a one nothing game in the seventh inning. A Ken Kennedy added RBI triple in the fourth against Jim Palmer. So. It was one nothing in the seventh when Joe Dimaggio came to the plate with a man on against Palmer and provided a swing that pushed the nor cows that much closer to the title. John Miller has the call so now jolt Joe Dimaggio to the plate for the man aboard here in the last of the seven, still only one to nothing nor cow, leading and Jim Palmer stood on the mound, having an outstanding night. Joe Basho one of the all time greats ten. Series! He played in and his team. The Yankees one nine of those ten, but he's kind of a quiet sherry so far. Palmer ready about. And he throws. A high drive the center field. That one is hit pretty well. Going way back there do Snyder. He's at the warning track. He's at the wall. Is. A homerun. Tell Dimaggio with a two run homer over the Centerfield Wall who had the coliseum over the four hundred foot sign, and it is three nothing. Nor Cow. Okay, now it's three now that you have a three nothing lead, it's. You know there's there's only. A couple minutes left here in this game and you know even with the even with the offensive nature of the series I'm imagining that with a three nothing lead. At lefty Gomez pitching the way. He's going Dennis Eckersley in your holster I mean. Did you start to think about that champagne at all? I was thinking more Tang. Tang in case we were gonNA. Go to game seven. No No, no cockiness there but to see Dimaggio. Come to life like that was really invigorating. It felt like it put up ten nothing. It felt so good. He hasn't had a great offensive series, but He was about to make a play that made me feel even better about it. And it just look really good at that point. Yeah, I it just I mean it three nothing lead with the kind of pitching. You have like we're talking about. just sounded just sounded kind of impenetrable impenetrable, so you have Dennis Eckersley on the mound three one lead. The problem is that. The one of the guys he had to face in the ending was the guy who has taken over the series. Offensively I mean. It was just the bad fortunate Eckersley had faces former as teammate Mark Maguire and Maguire came up there and he he get a double, and maybe was rattled a little bit He didn't usually walk is, but he walked Eddie Mathews to now. There's two on at southern California. Manager Houston Mitchell. What turned out to be a genius move. He had Fred Lynn. Bat for Robin Yount that moves surprise you a little bit. Well a little bit I mean Frank Robinson once told me that Robin. Yount in one, thousand, nine, hundred, two, which is a year we have. Had the greatest series ever seen by shortstop, and he wound up being an outfielder after that but Fred Lynn in his early days with the red sox was like a revelation. You know tremendous left hand hitter made spectacular catches ran into walls, Fan favourite. So, what are you going, do we? You know if you're playing the righty lefty thing? He's left knee coming up against act so a little bit, but it, but it was part of the deal is at Houston like like I I was trying to do is trying to get guys in the game and boy he he made A. Gutsy move there. It kinda paid off. So what is land do? He hits a two run double. The ties the game three all now I. Know You don't believe in momentum bruce, but following the Lynn double. There was a play that seemed to shift tied back to northern California's favor. Some McGraw is on the mound. Tony. gwynn is at the plate and he hits. What looks to be go ahead single, but Joe Dimaggio had other ideas southern. California staying alive two runs in here in the ninth inning, three three time tug McGraw from the bullpen to face Tony Gwynn now with Lynn, the possible. Go ahead run at second base. And? Here's McGraw the left-hander to the Left. Handed batting, Gwen. Grin hits a line drive up. The Middle Base headed a Centerfield Lynch coming around third. He's going to be way home tonight. Show. He's got a great aunt. Comes up throwing. A perfect one hops throw to the plate. It's going to be close and he is. The Great Tag after the grades. Role Ernie Long Bond. Is used, and we put up a road block, blocking off men from the place, and that the game tied Joe Dimaggio who've had quite a game. He nor town from falling behind here in the night. Well, that's not a bad center fielder. You have their bruce. Dimaggio charged that ball came up throwing. Threw a perfect strike to home to nail him and oh. Man, you talk about momentum, wh when I say I don't believe in it I believe in like the next day. You don't have any momentum from the day before, but it during a game i. absolutely believe in it. And when Dimaggio threw him out like that, I just felt like okay, you know bobby bonds was retired. Retired to end that inning, we got out of it. We go to extras, and I'm just thinking Dimaggio between the Homerun and that great and I still like we're we're. We're going here. And I was just thinking to imagine if you're a fan in in in the Coliseum, and this is the first chance you've had to see Joe Dimaggio play to see him do what he did so well. Not only at the plate, but in the field I think that that would be a moment. I would I would never ever forget just good. Yeah, and you know when he did that. Houston Mitchell's like how how great is this? It went against him. I said that several times when things went well for him. You'll see idea beast, guys you're. You're managing these guys and seeing what they're doing and so many great scenarios. Presented themselves, and it got to be more about just a pure enjoyment of the game then by God. I'm GonNa crush you hear Nortel the way I mean. That was part of it, but just the the players involved in able to manage him kind of. Everything emotionally. Yeah, and you know that play that. Dimaggio made throwing out. Redland might have had a small effect on what happened in the tenth inning, but eventually worked out for the so cows anyway what happened. Was that You know the Clicquot or the? I don't know the Arco Brand. Champagne had long been removed from the home dugout out that it was now that it was three three and McGraw's Dylan the game, and the southern California's at the top of the load the bases off McGraw. Now you made a decision and to bring in Dave Stewart to face Maguire and I mean that right there. You would think might have. Created the hit that puts this game in so cal favor now, mcgwire hit a fly ball to center Jackie Robinson. As fast as he was didn't test Maggio's arm and I guess with nobody out. There was no real reason to, but that really is kind of a respect for Dimaggio's Armand in what we saw the evening before, right? Absolutely once again you know Dimaggio's rising to the occasion and you know with Stuart there. You know we're in Oakland. Maguire's coming off He's had the better of Stewart and you know. I talked Dave Are you ready to pitch released and He especially wanted this moment and by God. I went with him there when he got Maguire on the fly ball I'm thinking. You know, thank you. However the double a double plane. You're out of it and you have the momentum now in, but that's not what happened Eddie Mathews step to the plate. That baby faced assassin. From the braves, and here's John Miller, letting you know what happened such tension, such drama tenth inning here at the Coliseum in game six, three, two three, the score days Stewart brought in from the bullpen in such a tight spot after tug, McGraw walked the bases loaded with one. He did get maguire on a shallow fly ball to Santa, but now here's Eddie Mathews. Mathews three-man men on two men out Matthews twelve time star. Five hundred twelve home runs one of the greatest slugging third baseman in major league history, and here is stu to Eddie Mathews and there's a swing on long drive deep in the center field. Way Back Goes Dimaggio. He's gliding back to the warning track and get out. Arrive Brag, grandma, it's grand. Salami time. Eddie bathrooms with a Grand Slam the tenth and southern. California has as seven to three lead. So that's it a grand slam by Eddie Mathews. A Four four-run victory for southern California, and now the series is all tied up at three games apiece and I have to think now that even though the game is at home. It's going to be at Oracle Park. You have to think that maybe. Maybe the the momentum that you don't believe in actually on the southern California side on the other hand. You're putting the series in the hands of Tom Seaver, and as we as we know, he had a three hit complete game in in game. Two and he's GonNa. Face Don Drysdale who was the game, went loser and didn't have a great game on. You feel pretty good about that matter. Now I feel really good about it Tom seaver pitching for me. You know we the are. Bats did not go quiet in in game six. The maggio came to life The mood in the clubhouses is good. It's upbeat. It was a tough tough hang. Right off the Bat, it was pretty crushing, but a few minutes went by. Guys are going. We're looking good here. Let's look around this clubhouse. We're GONNA take it tomorrow at Oracle. And Save the embarrassment of blowing a three one way all right well. One game left in the Golden Greats series. Here I mean you couldn't have asked for more from a competitive standpoint and we'll talk to you after game seven, Bruce. You Bet mccord to Henry. Thank you for listening.

Okay, now it's three now that you have a three nothing lead, it's. You know there's there's only. A couple minutes left here in this game and you know even with the even with the offensive nature of the series I'm imagining that with a three nothing lead. At Lefty Gomez pitching the way he's going Dennis Eckersley in your holster I mean. Did you start to think about that champagne at all? I was thinking more Tang.

So you have Dennis Eckersley on the mound three one lead. The problem is that. The one of the guys he had to face in the ending was the guy who has taken over the series offensively I mean it was just the bad fortunate. ECKERSLEY had faces former as teammate Mark Maguire, and Maguire came up there and he he get a double, and maybe was rattled a little bit He didn't usually walk is, but he walked Eddie Mathews. Now there's two on at southern. California manager Houston. Mitchell he just made a what turned out to be a genius move, he had Fred Lynn. Bat for Robin Yount that moves surprise you a little bit. Well a little bit. I mean Frank Robinson. Once told me that Robin Yount. In one, thousand, nine, hundred two, which is the year we haven't had the greatest series ever seen by shortstop, and he wound up being an outfielder after that but Fred Lynn in his early days with the Red Sox was like a revelation. You know tremendous left hand hitter made spectacular catches ran into walls, Fan favourite. So, what are you going, do we? You know if you're playing the righty lefty thing? He's left knee coming up against act, so they're a little bit, but it, but it was part of the deal is at Houston like like I. I was trying to do is trying to get guys in the game and boy he he made A. Gutsy move there. It kinda paid off. So what is Lendu? To double the ties the game three all now I know you don't believe in momentum, Bruce but following the Lynn double there was a play that seemed to shift tied back to northern California's favor. Some McGraw is on the Mound Tony. gwynn is at the plate and he hits. What looks to be go ahead single, but Joe Dimaggio had other ideas southern California, staying alive two runs in here in the ninth inning, three three time tug McGraw from the bullpen to face Tony Gwynn now with Lynn the possible go ahead run at second base. And here's McGraw the left-hander to the left handed batting, Gwen. Grin hits a line drive up. The Middle Base headed a Centerfield Lynch coming around third. He's going to be way home tonight. Show. He's got a great aunt. Comes up throwing. A perfect one hops throw to the plate. It's going to be close and he is. The Great Tag after the grades. Role Ernie Long Bond. Is used, and we put up a road block, blocking off men from the place, and that the game tied Joe Dimaggio. Who've had quite a game? He nor town from falling behind here in the night. Well, that's not a bad center fielder. You have their bruce while Joe. Dimaggio charged. That ball came up throwing. Threw a perfect strike to home to nail him and Oh man. You talk about momentum. Wh when I say I don't believe in it I believe in like the next day. You don't have any momentum from the day before, but it during a game I, absolutely believe in it, and when Dimaggio threw him out like that i. just felt like okay. You know bobby bonds was retired. Retired to end that inning, we got out of it. We go to extras, and I'm just thinking Dimaggio between the run, and that great and I still like we're we're. We're going here and I was just thinking to imagine if you're a fan, in in in the Coliseum and this is the first chance you've had to see. Joe Dimaggio play to see him do what he did so well. Not only at the plate, but in the field I think that that would be a moment. I would I would never ever forget just good. Yeah, and you know when he did that Houston. Mitchell's like how how great is this? It went against him. I said that several times when things went well for him. You'll see idea beast, guys. You're managing these guys and seeing what they're doing and so many great scenarios. Presented themselves and it got to be more about just a pure enjoyment of the game, then by God I'm GonNa? Crush you, hear Nortel the way I mean. That was part of it, but just the the players involved in able to manage him kind of. Everything emotionally. Yeah, and you know that play that. Dimaggio made throwing out. Redland might have had a small effect on what happened in the tenth inning, but eventually worked out for the so cows anyway what happened. Was that You know the Clicquot or the I? Don't know the Arco Brand. Champagne had long been removed from the home dugout out that it was now that it was three three and McGraw's Dylan the game and the southern. California's in the top of the load the bases off McGraw now. You made a decision and to bring in Dave Stewart to face Maguire and I mean that right there you would think might have. Created the hit that puts this game in so cal favor now, mcgwire hit a fly ball to center Jackie Robinson, as fast as he was, didn't test Maggio's arm and I guess with nobody out. There was no real reason to, but that really is kind of a respect for Dimaggio's Armin and what we saw the evening before, right? Absolutely once again you know Dimaggio's rising to the occasion and you know with Stuart there. You know we're in Oakland. Maguire's coming off He's had the better of Stewart. I, talked Dave, are you ready to pitch released and He especially wanted this moment and by God. I went with him there when he got Maguire on the fly ball I'm thinking. You know, thank you. However the double a double plane. You're out of it and you have the momentum now in, but that's not what happened Eddie. Mathews step to the plate. That baby faced assassin. From the braves and here's John, Miller, letting you know what happened such tension, such drama tenth inning here at the Coliseum in game six, three, two three, the score days Stewart brought in from the bullpen in such a tight spot after tug McGraw walked the bases loaded with one, he did get maguire on a shallow fly ball to Santa, but now here's. Three men on two men out Matthews twelve time, Star five hundred twelve home runs one of the greatest slugging third baseman in major league history, and here is stu to Eddie Mathews, and there's a swing on long drive deep in the center field. Way Back Goes Dimaggio. He's gliding back to the warning track and get out. Arrive Brag Grandma. It's Grand Salami time. Eddie bathrooms with a Grand Slam. The tenth and Southern California has as seven to three lead, so that's it a grand slam by Eddie Mathews, a four four-run victory for southern California, and now the series is all tied up at three games apiece and I I have to think now that even though the game is at home. It's going to be at Oracle Park You have to think that maybe. Maybe the the momentum that you don't believe in is actually on the southern. California side on the other hand. You're putting the series in the hands of Tom Seaver, and as we as we know, he had a three hit complete game in in game. Two and he's GonNa Face Don Drysdale, who was the game, went loser and didn't have a great game on. You feel pretty good about that matter. Now I feel really good about it Tom seaver pitching for me, you know we the are. Bats did not go quiet in in game six. The maggio came to life The mood in the clubhouses is good. It's upbeat. It was a tough tough hang. Right off the bat. It was pretty crushing, but a few minutes went by. Guys are going. We're looking good here. Let's look around this clubhouse. We're GONNA take it tomorrow at Oracle. And Save the embarrassment of blowing a three one way all right well. One game left in the Golden Greats series. Here I mean you couldn't have asked for more from a competitive standpoint and we'll talk to you after game seven Bruce, you bet mccord to Henry. Thank you for listening.

And maybe he will butcher jury view to now back to the Adam Corolla show. Well, max pad as sitting in for gene grad doing the news half of the show brought to you by simply safe. Adam dot com, JP weld, world's strongest pond, and geiko dot com. All right. Let's get some news man. Let's the Adam Corolla show your source for the news that matters. For random stories that piss Adamov. We're going to start off with a story that matters so vest or Stallone he was in can last week for a junket about Rambo five last blood try came. Wow. Yeah. Makes sense. So while he's doing. The QNA is asked by ninth member, of course, to reflect on Cobra and Salone responded. That was what if Bruce Springsteen had a gun, that was rock and roll, meet drama that should have been another franchise because the character was so cool, and I blew it. My personal life gone the way, but we're trying to bring it back as a streaming TV series, bring out his ambi- squad on long gone. But the idea is really good. Well, again, once LEGO, the movie came out with great, there are no more proclamations of what will work, and what won't work. Right. Cobra kind of weird, the relationship that sly hands with cove, of course spoken to him about it in person. Cobra is a comically laughably bad movie with horrible plot points, and it's basically an insane movie. That's why like it. But mostly, I make I'm making fun of one thousand percent. You cannot believe that this movie was made. It is laughably attend pull Ayla star. Right. Phil stupid scenes that mean nothing. I mean it is some of the worst movie making ever. But that's why I like it, of course. But let's not confuse it with a good movie. Yeah it's good. If you're super high on some edibles, and I'm in the room with you, but other than that, you're civic instance, you're not going to joy, because it's laughably bad like they in. There's just Sar scenes that make no sense at all like, and it's all full of tropes like that thing all those eighties movies, like super hot model. She she fears for life. We got a bad cop on the inside. We don't know who it is. Then the one single good-looking cop goes, I'll take the hot blonde or. Mountain hideaway LAPD as a couple of places in Aspen, that they keep just in case one on one, then we are the entire squad. Right. And somehow she won't be safe in L A. But if we can get to this Royal mountain community, we're home free, and then the one chick, who's turncoat who is working in the operators room has to go with them. I'm not sure why surely needs to go with them. 'cause amount and tears now that I've seen the movie I've ever been inside the LAPD. But I don't think you get someone from the secretarial pool to leave town with the two detectives, and the one, chick that's being hunted by the homicidal maniac biker gang. But it's a ridiculously comically, bad movie with lots of fire lots of fire, but it shouldn't be confused with good movie, but you can still put any name on anything in, you know, -solutely. Try to have some fun with a lot of things that come back. They kind of make fun of themselves because back then they're taking themselves very seriously, but they can kind of make yourself aware twenty one jump street version Cobra. It reminds me very much of my junior year and north Hollywood high and the Richard Kim incident. Talk about it Kim, Richard him. If we find at north Hollywood yearbook from nineteen Eighty-one picture, Kim, Richard Cam guy, he was probably Chinese guy and he was like, I don't know struggled with the language a little bit that big wide head, you know, one of these guys, you know, carried a briefcase in nineteen eighty one kind of guys all assimilating. Yeah. And Chinese name, I think it's Korean I think he was Korean. Yeah. Somewhere he was. I think he was Korean even though back then it's like Chinese Korean Japanese. They're all all the same all the same. But all right. So here's Korean so. He got up there. He was running for president, even though nobody really knew him or liked him or anything. But he was running for present soon body president. We had the assembly in the basketball gym, and he like got his time to walk up to the podium and give his little speech and just because we were screwing kids, he got up there and like somebody when he got to the thing is like, if I'm elected as somebody like, we love you Richard, and then he was like, thank you. And then someone else was laughing as ironically Richard, and then a certain point, I was there are working in laws. Rich. And as you breaks out totally ironically, because this guy, nobody knew who he was had no, charisma. And no no reason we student by president like when you got best hair. How dare you earned that award kids are cruel and every once in a while, they will do something, very Ron. So the higher Jim broke out in a chant of Richard and as it's caught on it. Caught on everyone's board off their ass. And just looking for a way to entertain themselves, of course, Richard. He's just trying to silence. The crowd he was in. He's, he's as harmful Mussalini, and he's like, okay, I reading I know you love me now. Come on back order in his mind. He's captivated the imagination of north Hollywood high the rally Israel making fun of him ironically, and he doesn't know what's going on. And it's like the had to get the principal. On the blower and tell everyone the calm down calm down and get everyone get settled in. And then he come back up to the podium ago. I'm elected. They'd probably just cut the whole thing short. So when I went to say to sly about cobras, this is the Richard Kim incident, we don't Cobra this is bad code. I still will be gone yet Cam start to chant Cobra. I had a bizarrely similar incident in my highschool for elections. The speeches like you said, our version of Richard Kim. I forget some from high school, tweet me, and tell me who it was because our version of Richard Kim got up to give a speech, and he was droning on, for what found like ours, probably, you know, ten minutes or whatever was, and at a certain point, mid speech, your grandma, yellow wearing. Potato, sir. Mid-speech like. People start applauding. Talking louder trying to talk. And there's just Platt him off the stage like all right. That was good. Just kind of took his notes saying the same thing, same day. I think he's Asian his age. I know if he's busy with Kim Dow king situations, he would come out and everybody would get on their feet, and they would just go nuts for this guy. He won everybody loved him because of it like I found out about him. He was older than me. So I didn't even know who he was. But as the election happened, everybody loved him. And he was just not admonished, and in a very similar story on the by you in the south, and we didn't know anyone in care assure don't be. Kale. You got to look for a yearbook picture on it. It's come. Come. Guys are gonna your. Really satisfied. What happ- what Richard Kim a really good producer. Fits breath of fresh air. Yeah, no feel pet my staff I wanna yeah. I'm happy to come to work. While he's looking for Richard Kim. A man outside the White House yesterday said himself on fire. He's now been pronounced dead Jesus. Yeah. So the secret service and park police respond to report of a guy who set himself on fire. Officers extinguish the blaze and police later dented him as are not Gubta thirty three of Maryland. He was last seen by his family left his home earlier that day. And they, they sent out a releasing police are concerned for his physical and emotional welfare people. Have no idea why he did it. There's video and pictures, it's pretty crazy. Just imagine a walking fireball, and he died, and nobody knows wise actions remain unknown the investigations being handled by the police right now. But no, nobody knows why. Picture. I don't wanna see. It hurts this man on fire. Yeah. Just set himself on fire. Nobody knows why I'm always fascinated on how people kill themselves. You know with with the advent of all the drugs, pharmaceuticals and booze. You know what I mean and shotguns and crossbows that whole thing. Earning. Actual making us ally. Tiger any day fight me. Let me. At. Have any richer Kim photos? You can see. He's got. He's got the sixties stockbroker, hairdo where the rayon checking clip on tie. It's like this is nineteen Eighty-one. There's not a cool Duran Duran. What's happening now? You know, Richard Cam. Yeah. Rich. So obviously, it's totally ironic and GM would not shut up. And once we did it once it was done once, then it was on. It would no one would ever stop. You can't police a fifteen hundred kids crowd, and of course, me and Ray and my buddies were spearheading. The entire thing were stamp. They're stomping on the wooden bleachers. Here's just like giving the peace sign like Nixon like waving the who could get mad at that. You guys are cheering for it's positive. Well, what did is it completely disrupted the event? So the other people that were behind him couldn't give their up ended the entire thing. And we didn't we didn't care. And I don't know if he ever even was elected. Win. I don't we weren't interested in any of any kind of the mayor of calabash. We just had we just had that part. And again, I'm sure he never had any idea that this is all done. Completely. Ironically, I don't think the Asians have the ironic, gene. We don't you know this guy burn himself for an himself in. Will find a motive but the second burning song four and it was BS last month, another guy himself on fire side, the White House as well. But that one wasn't life threatening. That wasn't life threatening. That's yeah. That's what it says. Last last month. Somebody else try that too. But there's a whole thing about when you set yourself on fire right? You sending a certain message. Yeah. What is the message? Well, you know, when people jump off of the Golden Gate Bridge, that's supposed to mean something. And when people do the burning themselves. I don't know what it is. But you shouldn't do it. I when I heard the story, the documentaries that jumped leaper jumpers bridge documentary, it's Downer. But the people know what this is. Documentary about folks X amount of kill themselves, the Golden Gate Bridge, free grayish, right? And there was one or two, people that survived the fall and her first impulse, but this could be just purely physiological or chemical or something. But the first everyone who jumps off something and tries to kill themselves. But survives there. I thought when they let go of the railing in their fifteen inches away from ever coming back with. Oh shit. Yeah, I should've wish back on that. Now that could be a chemical thing. Instinct still. I don't like that. I wouldn't like that thought like on the way down like this is a poor life death. Joyce made a mistake. Yeah. Well, we went to the Golden Gate Bridge last month, and we're peering over that. And every time I did at the first thing I think of is, oh, man people jump off this. Yeah. What would it be like to jump off? We doing the news kind of par thing where it's like my feeling if I found the guy lived is I wanna hire you, if you don't try to kill yourself again, or certainly or do it during the weekend, you know. Yeah. 'cause there's something about it that I pre she ate. I don't think women probably don't do that as much as I recall, it was majority men one or two. I know two women who jumped off the greater New Orleans bridge, kill themselves to women. Really? Yeah. Couldn't handle the what. What was actually a student of mine from Newman school from my first year of teaching beautiful girl, very wealthy family, seem perfectly normal, and they knew having some trouble in the way, she did it was. She woke up really early left. The house had a cabbie meter outside, and she said she wanted to get picked from the top of the bridge at sunrise. And she had a camera with her and the whole thing. And the guy says, well, we can't stop on the bridge, and she says. Yeah. Can you slow down enough for me to get a few shots? And he said, sure. And she kept going to slow down. I can almost get an as soon as he almost got to stop. She jumped out didn't not even second thought just through a self over. She's heavy on the cabbie. Man. It was rough. I mean in the other one. She drove onto the bridge and stopped. Her car guy behind with what are you doing? She got out. She walked, she's looking at the guy as she walked behind her car one foot the other foot gone while boom. Yeah. I wonder if that guy thinks she was just going to work, and he caused it because he gave her the bird or honked, his horn. That's weird. It is a weird, right? Yeah. Watching someone just moments before they're dead. All right. Happier news, what? He got better. Happy boy, there's not, not happiness, but Disney. Their CEO. Bob. I told routers on Wednesday that it will be Reuters. Right sees. They'll be very difficult for the media company. Keep filming and Georgia new abortion law takes effect. He says, I think many people who work for us will not want to work there. And we will have to heed their wishes in that regard right now. We're watching it, very carefully. Now they filmed so far. They film in Georgia. Black Panther vendors endgame to be a blow to the state to create production general Shoup, Black Panther, Montana, we need actress shit outta luck, bro. Yeah, you're gonna South Dakota got to racist guys and a guy snowmobile repair to loggers. But that is, I guess we can go to good luck during the village rally seem. Yeah. You gotta you gotta work, your work, Georgia. I, I tend to think I think all this stuff is sort of, like, chick filet like people go, people don't want this, and that and then people fuck it. You gotta money. Got a gig, I wanna chick fillet or at the fucking airport. If I it just it just sort of goes away and difference. I think I think ever is. There aren't a lot of chick other options to tick flights amazing reason. They're a lot of their options for filming. We talked about how the, the model doesn't always work for the state, because there's always, another state or another place offering incentives. There's always in Mexico. Always, yeah. And that's true. And who knows. They'll still whenever they do Black Panther three everyone forget about it. They'll do whatever makes the most sense from a cost effective standpoint. Everyone does have a chicken burger. Now. I'm not an expert at this chicken sandwich offer. It they somehow just can't get that shit fillet party. It's pretty good. I probably have we'll share cheat meal there. There's a chick flavor reason there's a couple of airports, that are like trying to ban Chick-fil-A fuck you. I've never been. But what is the fast food like fast food that people like it like airports and their owners religious and he's against gay marriage. And so whoever airport think it's buffalo or something, maybe another San Antonio or something like that, because they're fucking woke cares. Think it's a good idea to ban business from airport, which look the deal is the owners allowed to have whatever thoughts. He has. He's not allowed to impose that on the public, then you can start your banning. So if the owner is Christian and he's against gay marriage. That's his business if he doesn't serve gay couples with them. Now we've. Does he now do anything, the fucking thought police, don't like the idea that this guy has thoughts? So he's an American. It's a free country. He's got a thought, but woke people in New Jersey and maybe another airport or like more not gonna let you open your business here, and the people who are up in arms over Chick-fil-A will have. No trouble going in and out. And they are just as religious bible versus on the Kayce in and out as religious every in the bottom of the cups, that bible verses just get the burger, and I got sixteen I'm not. I'm not. In order the Cup of meat. You give the signal take the two fingers on top form. Guy knows what? Style. Yeah. Yeah. They're, they're religious, and they have their ideas, and they make a good burger, and I'm only eating their burger. I do not have to. They're not imposing anything on me and they're not they're not making any protocols or procedures of the ten they're not telling me anything they're just making martyrs. I'll eat them if I like buffalo, and San Antonio, both airports, if outlawed Chick-fil-A, I hope that get the shit suit out of them. You're not allowed to do that doing themselves disservice to people like chick filet. Let's fucking with the people come here port for. All right. Anyway. Not that they care either. They're just making one of those. Yeah. It's no that he took a weird STAN because he never said that. I feel this way or visit feels waits the people who work for wouldn't wanna work there and we got we got to have. I bet they will work there, if there's money to be made by line. I find that's how the world where all right? Let me hit. J B weld. Oh, you gotta repair project at home or in the garage. Ordinary household glue. Well, it's got the word ordinary right in the title, everybody, you don't want that one strength really matters. Choose the leader in partied Hase's for metal wood, plastic, and more. Don't glue it. J B weld. It man. I was at seem Vinnie. And I was walking through the place where have all the lays and the water jet cutters and everything, and I ran into the JV weld guy, we got a whole box wag, and I loved it. I guys at the shop. J B weld, a poxy products proudly made in the USA, it's the brand both DIY. Here's and. Pros trust. For over fifty years, it here, use it at the shop. It's the best shave well, and it's valuable at J B. Well dot com. Home Depot Lowe's outta zone. Advance auto parts, Riley, all those good places JV. Well, all right. What else we got? All right. A Floridian woman was charged with domestic battery after punishing her stepson for violating curfew. She was whipping him with a belt that the issue is the guy's twenty six the twenty six years, old mom's set moms forty two she called the victim after midnight, nasty mom. Yes. Step ma. Wow. Two year old stepping and say this about ladies. But that's some. Yeah. Yeah. I, I like the cut her chip, like my belt knows. No limits. I don't care old DR, and I don't care. Kinda my son or if your son. She's been set for thirteen years, and the victim has been living here for three months. So what happens? She calls him after midnight Nassim to decide its punishment for missing curfews choices either tell his father or take the licks, he chose licks. So the victim chose and when route thirty minutes after she hit him eleven times in the butt with the belt police said he told the stepmom to stop, but she refused saying he had nineteen more blows coming Jesus. And she admits hitting your steps and thirty times. But denied he ever told her to stop? She said she just asked, how many more blows he had left and now she is charged with domestic battery to the story. Right. How you said he's twenty twenty six forty two there, she have dominion like there may be a sexual component here. The tension. Spoke in sexual energy to this relationship. Her stepson with a belt for breaking curfew. That's a point. I never sold stop. That's right. I was twenty six turn into category living with Ralph and Cortlandt and lock Rasin. I'm trying to think of Lynn called me and said, hey, come. Valley village the word is you've been coming home. Trying to think what that conversation would even be like, you know, you can tell your dad. Well, there's a lot of similarities here because for, for the man because I was hit two times by other people's parents has been well documented on the show. Roberta was one of them was a woman, the only time my dad ever ever ever spanked me. He gave me a choice of sitting in my room and being grounded for three or four hours or taking taking a spank ran for the room to chose the spanking. So, you know, there's a lot there's a lot of elements here that I can identify parents, do any spanking or now they did know we're, it's kind of they were totally consistent and that they had no involvement in their kid's life and spanking kind of calorie burner. Like you have to think I they're not physical people, and they're not aggressive people and they're not violent people, but also. Like, whatever you say about corporal punishment, there's a certain amount of engagement, they're like you have to get up and you have to care about something and have to go, what who ate all the cupcakes, who. Barred, my car to went joyriding, like what's times, curfew and look at these grades grades grades are horrible. This report might parents care about anything. So there wasn't any re-. Nothing provoked a spanking because who, who cared, you know you have. Devin engagement. You know what I mean? We were spanked so much. I'm pretty sure mom had Tommy, John surgery. Really just spanking you. Oh my God. Four kids tendon took out a one elbow. Bad patient before getting spanked was just the there was no anticipate it was. You got it right there. Yeah. I got no spanking and also got no dinner so balance out quite got fed news. Talion family got fat, nice after mom would feed me hot sauce. If I ever talked back. Sauce. It's terrible that. Yeah, it happened. I don't probably cut few times a year or I would or another thing she would do is you'd make me kneel on a grill. Yeah. Crew? Just to grow just a great for a while on the needs. Yeah. Wow. It's hot sauce. Not a big part of Filipino cooking. It is. That's why we had so much ever. I never wanted it. Yeah. All right. Well, the tolerance to them. So. Where was it on the Scoville scale? I know it wasn't it wasn't anywhere near your hot one million. I was DJ Cal. All right. So two years ago, Terrel? Thomas died in jail. He's a Milwaukee, man. He what what happened was he died of dehydration after jailers setup water to sell a grandma says Terrell sorry. Yeah. Sorry. It is Toronto. So anyway, he the family's just been paid six point seven five million in settlement. And this is just a crazy story because what happened was the three officers. He what did you need to clogged toilet, say, like this is the problem with our society? Everyone's suing everyone after this. But you don't rain him Lee. Shut the water off to sell less. Somebody's doing something that you want them to stop doing, they won't stop doing so what was he doing? So he clogs the toilet, and he was moved another cell, and the sheriff's office ordered that as water become, but the person who cut off the water didn't know that they just meant the toilet water. So they cut off all the water seven days later. They found him dead Jesus. Yeah. And so they don't have any what did he do by the way? Look, if he murdered someone good charged with reckless endangerment, and felony firearms violation five shots any local casino. You want. Sam as a hero back. Watering, general pop. Right. When they let them out during the day, I'm trying to think of how this work he was not able to communicate sink didn't were inmates sets about that. They heard thirty eight year old begging for water for days. No else. Yes. That they were unaware the water to celebrate turned off. They didn't check and so. Yeah. So the jail administered or Nancy Evans. She is also being accused of hiding footage of them turning the water off. She didn't tell investigators about the footage. When asked gotta hide everything. So instead. In your prison. Everything. The body, first of all. So she'll she's been sentenced to nine months in jail. I, I'd like to go out and have drinks. With Aaron Andrews lawyer, her lawyer, her law team, because we figured out, she got some Certa forty forty or fifty five or something. He also. I'm not even sure like the guy who ran the Holiday Inn. They didn't film her. They just said, she's in twenty one b whatever they didn't didn't go, oh, I have adverse keycard. I can get you into the bathroom like they all they did was run a hotel. They were just they're, they're basically, they're the guy. They got sued for millions and millions of dollars. But I'm just saying this guy's dead because he died of dehydration. He can six point seven. The family got six point seven five million dollars. But Aaron is alive in bone producer right now. And she got some million, she really got that much she got her as gots over, I was guessing like thirty five and it was like fifty five fifty five and she still alive still. And all right. Let me hit gyco, and then we'll do one more story got the to do list about yet. Save hundreds of dollars in your car insurance. You don't have to go anywhere.

It's another summer of MBA free agency about the take off here, and the buzzes that LA as you may have heard has to NBA basketball teams and all of a sudden would you believe it, one of the legends of the Lakers, Jerry West as now running the clippers largely and all of a sudden, the clippers are apparently, the more desirable destination for free agents than the LA Lakers, which would you rather? Go to one steeped in tradition, but kinda weird and their trajectory right now with LeBron James or go to a place that seems to be talented. Roster may be going places but has zero history, which appeals to you more give you Dawson answer. Golden state. But my but Dawson that wasn't that's not in the spirit of what I'm asking us where I wanna play. But you understand what I'm laying out for. You is like being on a perennial have or perennial have not in being the difference maker there. So those are your two choices Golden State's winter. Could might be a Mike August answer. But it's definitely Mike. Dawson answer, not, not a big fan of Los Angeles. But it in the context of the hypothetical I'm giving you say all that gave my answer, Golden State. That's my. You know, it's, it's, it's weird because one team seems to be on the decline. The others on the come. And what do you know, I would go clippers at this particular point, but, but who knows because years from now, actually, you know, you're gonna play few more years in the league or whatever I'd play and then at some points, all gonna be history and you're going to want to be part of that history. Well, that's the question go Lakers for that reason. Because you'll just get. Swept up in the hundred years from now just your name and amongst other people's names, who? Answer. I talked to football players about this all the time. Why did you go to USC? Reggie Bush you. Coulda gone to Oregon and gone down the greatest in Oregon football history. You know, why don't you want to be the singular guy? Maybe that's my vanity. I don't wanna be in the mix of, of. He's just the latest in the lineage of great players here. One of those guys, I wanna be I wanna be I wanna be Archie manning, who until his son went there. And in fact, even after son went there is now the ole miss legend for all of time. That's the better thing when it calls this, the Robin yount syndrome. She loves those Harvey, wall bangers. She loves those eighty two brewers man. Yeah, yeah. Robin. Yeah. Yeah. He was like only guy, you knew on the team for a deck day had. Well, they that is one of the I mean, within or in our lifetime, the Harveys, wall Bangor's, first of all the Milwaukee Brewers are not celebrated nearly enough. I they are named for beer. They're named after only better team name would be if they named a team after jerky. Make that happen. Some AAA squats, gotta go with jerky. Oh, yeah. In this theme nights. Yes, it's such a natural your. Yeah. Yeah. Presents the beer making the best brewer. And they used to until we got to politically correct. Their mascot upon every home run used to slide into a giant beer and their team's nickname was the was Harvey's wall, bangers and half of the players on the team that won the American League pennant and took the cardinals. I believed seven games in nineteen eighty-two half of them were fat loads Pete vukovich fat guy with a big mustache Gorman. Thomas had a pot belly in a food, Manchu and a week's growth, all around Ben Ogilvy so Cooper, Ted Simmons, Robin yount almost all my around a lot of brewers. Listen, I, I like sports. I'm a nerd you understand. I wasn't out walking ladies or anything like that. They weren't gonna do. To chicken, or the I think we know it was it was the lady didn't care damage talk to me, though. Oh, yes, you always lent me, her ear. I appreciate it. Go at Gary washed year. The Marilo team in Texas, which is linked to the San Diego Padres had a team naming contest, and one of the five options was the Morello jerky. Good lost out. But someone was out why the sod poodles. I don't know what that means. Wow, says the sod poodles nickname the Saudis. I don't son poodle the sod. It looks like some sort of a gopher like. Animal. It sounds like when an English guy talking about a bunch of gay fellas like, eventually, if Queen bees inside poodles hanging out front of the bar smoking. Are you sure you wanna be be America's pastime and be known as the Saudis? Weird one and side just feels like grass. You can buy the Home Depot. It is a reference to. Got lost it. I'm sorry. The name references the abundance of prairie dogs in west Texas, odd poodles. Hey, real quick in the last minute or two that we have this week of hot sports. Talk, Gary and Dylan bind, the glass that went the extra mile and they dug up some other great examples. We we started at last week. Former athletes, or even current athletes in the moment getting paid a lot of money to do endorsements and the most embarrassing endorsements that professional athletes. Are high profile sports figures have done? Let's see. Let's see another. We talked about Jimmy Johnson with the extends. Add that to me is, is going to be hard one to beat the big hurt. This is my guy Carson Palmer, one of my favorite guys to be in the NFL. And by the way, he to me is the quintessential human being when he looks like a quarterback is supposed to look him. He does, and he's, he's going down on a hot dog the ad says he's eating a Weiner extending it directly, very homo erotic. And it says go long poodle. Trust him. And it looks like they take in mustard in drawn the laces of a football on the hot dog of your right? Which makes it unappetizing. It's a very weird. It's one of those things that whoever dreamt it up with very happy with them. Oh, we'll take the mustard but all it is confused. Yes. Let's can flake are our food stuff with with leather right perfect. Here's one from who is this one? Gary is that say, oh, it's the penguin Ron say there's a few people in here, identify onscreen.

My weed is part of your breakfast kinda ran out of gas with the with the dollars there. I guess we went after Ed, white eighty one everywhere Wyche. Wyk. White played. You get you get chocolate thunder. You get the penguin Ron say now the interesting part about Ron say is that it would appear as though he's taking an bat in the big league ballgame. So then why is the catcher on his team? The one catching behind him. I think he's taken BP because they got the cage that got the mobile BP. I say Corolla see, I say it's out the crowds gathered there. The guys. All Pat it up. He's got his batting helmet on BP action. That's, that's a big league ballgame.

Also, why does the penguin Ron say, get to wear L A dodgers official memorabilia in uniform dockings? And whoever Ed white is although it's unclear what team he played for. I don't know who had white is. But why do they have to wear generic jerseys? I'm going to stick my neck out and say, Ed white was an offensive lineman on the chargers. Can you verify that plea? It wasn't. It wasn't a flanker Renou. No. He was. Not not a star running back. All right. Go ahead. Was it looks like? Donkey, is I get to eat. Oh my goodness. It's outrageous, that's, that's Darryl Dawkins donkey's. He said, gorilla, we donkeys gorilla. Donkey slam dunking. All right. Yeah.

The Sporting Life: 5/1/20

"Welcome to the sporting life with Jeremy Shabby. We'll bring the next hour. Jeremy Takes a trip through baseball history including a conversation about one of the greatest players of all time Yogi Berra. My father told me that this was one of the most dynamic baseball players he'd ever seen in his life and that's usually the way we think of. We think of Yoga means overshadowed by his persona. He's so much better as a baseball pires than I ever thought. I mean he was the best player on the team in baseball history. End A discussion. About how bud? Selig brought baseball back to Milwaukee and change the sports landscape idea of bringing the Seattle pilots was as bug field so that the very last June had that efforts failed. There may not be big league baseball in Milwaukee today and a whole generation of fans including me would either become standard twenty fans or maybe just focused on the Green Bay packers plus the story of one of the greatest collections of hitters. To not win the world series. The nineteen ninety-five Cleveland Indians. It was really a perfect storm of a team that had been built from the ground up years in advance. And this franchise moves into this beautiful new ballpark in downtown. Cleveland and timing could not have been more perfect the sporting life on ESPN radio and the ESPN APP. Here's Jeremy Shop. Welcome to another edition of the sporting life. By this time we would be about a month into the major league. Baseball Season Opening Day was supposed to be March twenty sixth and of course there is no baseball and we don't know whether baseball is going to be back this season at all whether it will be back with no fans in the stands a lot of permutations being discussed but right now more uncertainty than anything else but for the next hour. We'll talk about baseball. History will talk about baseball analytics with some of the smartest minds that have covered the gain. We start with our old friend. The senior baseball writer at the Athletic Keith Law. His new book is the inside game. Bad call strange moves in what baseball behavior teaches us about ourselves. Lot To unpack their key. Thank you for joining us. Thanks so Keith. First of all. Let's start with the absence of baseball from our lives. Right now You're someone whose life revolves around the game. Who's always immersed in the game? What is this for you? It's very strange. Certainly we are You at a point in the calendar ordinarily I'd be finishing updrafts owning hitting some minor league games and starting to prepare mock drafts. The baseball draft is still tentatively scheduled for June tenth. But of course there's some uncertainty around when the draft will be or how many rounds might entail and so I'm in a holding pattern and feeling a bit sort of addressed in as much as the running joke is sort of what day is today for me. It's sort of what month is it right. I look outside and think I should be doing baseball but there was no baseball for me and that is so much. I appreciate the time home with the family. There's absolutely a poll. There that Says No. You're supposed to be out watching players writing the things and it is very very strange to not have that as a regular feature of my life especially this time in the calendar. Yeah Baseball's such a part of the rhythm of our lives once it gets started in late March early April and it's just there for the next seven eight months a and and I think people are really feeling the absence I have a friend Who's in his sixties? Who is recovering from? Cova nineteen right now. Thankfully he's doing well and he's texting me every couple of days when his baseball back? That's all he wants his baseball back. Because he's one of these guys who watches you know one hundred fifty games a year if he can. He's a mets fan so he's a glutton for punishment but it is. It is so strange not to have it again. We're speaking with Keith Law. He is a senior baseball writer at the athletic and his new book is the inside game. Bad calls strange moves in what baseball behavior teaches us about ourselves. And of course what you were writing this book We could not have foreseen the situation which we find ourselves but it's perhaps more applicable now thinking about baseball. In the way we think about the game than it was before The pandemic what do you mean when you say that baseball behavior tells US something about ourselves? The way people in baseball behavior to come to the business of the game. Baseball is very much. A series of discrete events. Does this series of discrete decisions. It's fairly easy for us to isolate specific choices whether it's a managerial choice with any game or general managers decision to sign a player trade a player or scouting director's decision on what player their draft or even more generally what type of player to draft. And so it allows me to sort of go both ways if you don't know anything about behavioral economics. It's not at least when was in college. I partially major economic in college. We didn't do a lot of this stuff to learn it all adult. You don't know this stuff. I can explain a lot of these concepts. I think fairly simply using baseball examples. Because how often in life do you have something like that where you can really isolate specific decision or have fairly specific data on a series of choices made over a long period of times? You can look and say this works. This doesn't it really allowed me to again. I think it's a big this material more accessible and at the same time. Tell some fun baseball stories. I LOVE TALKING ABOUT BASEBALL DECISIONS. That did or didn't work. I loved delving through years of draft results. To look at okay. Was it actually a bad idea to take high school pitcher in the first round? Yeah turns out of Kinda. Is that stuff? I always want to write books that I think I would like to read if I were on the other end and this allowed me to do that to tell fun interesting stories in baseball history. I hope book get them to a length that no one had looked at them through war. We're speaking with Keith Law. A senior baseball writer for the athletic. His new book is the inside game. Bad calls strange moves in what baseball behavior teaches us about ourselves. Of course the bad decision stuff is is fascinating historically I remember I used to host a show on. Espn classic We would have some the most distinguished baseball writers sports journalists. Have all time on the show. Guys like Leonard Kopp. It who I guess is kind of the The grandfather is it fair to save analytics not only baseball but also in basketball somebody who covered the game away. The kind of delve deeper and you SAV disagreement We talk about we did a segment once about. What's the worst trade ever you know there's always What is it early? Braulio? I mean I'm sorry It's Braulio Lou Brock Right. And I'd say yet that's terrible That's terrible Leonard. But what about Amos Roussy for Christy Mathewson? The reds traded Christy Mathewson. Right who had not yet appeared in the major leagues? And he would go on win. What three seventy three or three eighty three three hundred seventy? Three Games frames roussy. Who'd been a great pitcher but was washed up at one like four games for the reds or something like that. He said well that doesn't count because they couldn't have known that was going to happen and I'm like well. That's the whole point though Leonard but it still ends up. I don't know what I'm saying. I have no idea actually right now. What I'm saying Keith. But what what does that. Is that a terrible trade or is there a difference between terrible trades based on outcome terrible decisions versus it's known UNKNOWNS UNKNOWN UNKNOWNS? I guess is what I'm trying to say absolutely well one of the things you got there in. The debate is outcome by seems to me. Like Leonard was probably falling in that particular argument for outcome by Association. Say INTO THE TRAP OF BIAS. Which is one of the ones. I discussed in the inciting more the mini cognitive biases. And I think one of the easiest to understand essentially outcome bias is judging an outcome sorry judging process by the outcome or by the results I worked therefore it was a good idea. That's not true. That's what I'm saying. Everyone can understand their own lives right. You had something where you said. I did all the right things and it still didn't work. That's the difference between process and outcomes and they use the example in the book of Bob Bradley in the two thousand one world series and was managing Arizona diamondbacks and did kind of everything wrong for seven games but the diamondbacks still won the world series. Did Bob Bradley do a good job? Was He a good manager? Or was he simply a manager who was standing nearby when Randy Johnson and Curt Schilling? Pretty much won the world series for the diamondbacks. I choose the latter bad process. Good outcome do not let us fall into the outcome. Bias of saying Bradley's process must have been good because they won when can look at the individual decisions with data with actual evidence and say. No these were bad decisions and individually. They may not have worked out but on the whole the series as a whole workout for the diamondbacks. And we can judge those two things separately. Keith law again you can read them at. The athletic is new book is the inside game. Bad calls strange moves in what baseball behavior teaches us about ourselves. We couldn't really do it. Justice in the time allotted but I recommend it keep. Thanks so much for being here on the show again Mike. Leisure thanks for having. This is the sporting life on. Espn radio and the ESPN APP Yogi Berra was one of the great baseball players of all time. One of the great winners in the annals of sport but he meant more to people than just a great baseball player typically would there was a lot of humor out him and some unintentional philosophy. Is well now. Lawrence Peterborough is the subject of a new book by our old friend. One of the great sports journalists of our time John Pasa his book is simply Yogi a life behind the mask John. Thank you for joining us. Jeremy It's my pleasure. John I mean I let me start by saying Yogi? Berra's one of those guys and I have like many people tremendous fondness for him and I In appreciation for him probably more than most people having known him a little and growing up in New York Being around him. What more do we need to know about Yogi Berra that we don't already know? Well I'll tell you I threes. I did this book was my I got Yogi and nineteen sixty when I was eight years old and he was a role paying outfielder for very strong Yankee teams very good role. Play a role player. My he was my father's favorite player. My father told me that this was one of the most dynamic baseball players who ever seen in his life. And that's not usually the way we think of you. Think of Yoga means overshadowed by his persona so I really wanted to go back just at the beginning and just look at this tremendous baseball player and he was so much better. And I'm a huge baseball fair but he's so much better as a baseball player than I ever thought. He was the best player on the best team in baseball history. Well he won those MVP awards when the Yankees were winning all those world series. They won the world series and forty nine fifty fifty one fifty two fifty three he was the MVP in fifty one fifty four and fifty five and this is at a time that you Mickey Mantle was coming into his own. He was about to win the triple crown and fifty six. Ted Williams was still doing remarkable things. There was a lot of tough competition in the American league but Yogi Berra was the MVP in three of those seasons. What made him so great. two things one. He was just a tremendous hitter on right from the start. This guy was a twenty home. Run one hundred. Rbi to eighty three twenty hitter Out of the catcher slot where the catch was expected to play. Defense and to call pitches and that was it and actually the first year of of yogis career There was there was a very very chance he was been outfielder catcher. And it wasn't until Casey stangl came in and realized if I have a hard hitting catcher Then I have something special and brings him built dickey. They fix mechanical problems with with. Yoga's pitchers hated pitching to him. In his first two years He cleans up the mechanics. and Yogi now becomes almost overnight the best catcher in the American league and one of the true talents. I had no idea. How do you have a near photographic memory of of baseball and he could tell you how to get somebody out in the fourth inning with a man on second that we did four and a half years ago Here's the right pitch and the players. Just you know turn completely turned around because that is an incredible weapon to have. Plus you as a fielder. Was you know as good now better than anyone? We're speaking with longtime sports writer and editor John Pass. His new book is Yogi a life behind the mask biography of Lawrence. Peter Barra probably one of the thirty greatest baseball players ever to live and one of only a few athletes. North American major sports history with as many as ten championship rings. But when I think of Yogi John I think about Some of the contradictions. You know one of the great athletes of all time but not in an athlete's body right. How did that lead people to misjudge him in the beginning? I think that you know his Bonnie. I'll tell you this to one general one specific part of it that literally changes baseball history. The the general is you you look at him and you know equipment managers. When he walked into his minor league teams would give him a uniform To the uniform because they thought he would say to try out not that he was part of a team He just didn't look like an athlete. He had a toll person upper body a short persons lower body. A long arm big shows a hidden neck But when he stepped the field He was just an incredible player. The Guy who was who is supposed to be the greatest judge of talent in part because he could look at a sixteen year old and figure out what he was going to look like. He's twenty one named branch rickey greatest talent evaluate ever. He takes one look at Yogi and the size and tells them to face your no more than AAA baseball player and I need people who go all the way and so instead of a playing for the cardinals team or when the cardinals make the mistake playing for the ground Who then become the Orioles and this drives orioles fans crazy when I tell them that? Yogi Berra in his prime would have been catcher for the Baltimore Orioles He makes this gigantic mistake and he loves joke. Hours Yoyogi best friend across the street neighbor. Who literally is six one hundred and seventy five pounds and absolutely look like baseball player and is very good but it wasn't Yogi Berra. John Speaking with John. About his new biography of Yogi Berra and as I tried to suggest in early. Didn't you know the thing about Yogi? Berra it's not just the achievements on the field. Obviously but it's This aura about him and it and I was random lot. I interviewed him on a number of occasions. And there was this charm and this warped about him although he could be tough but but People thought he was this guy Who had this endless stream of unintentionally? Funny one liners this kind of stuff. It actually interviewing Yogi was an easy. Wasn't somebody who actually fit the way the people people noam thought of him you know his persona his public thing wasn't the real Yogi. Can you explain that disconnect a little bit and wide exists? Well I mean definitely wasn't Yogi was always A quiet if not shy person the only place the Yogi fell a hundred percent comfortable was on any ball field where he was always a best player and you could see through his life. The people who talked for and Joe Garagiola who helped with Yogi `ISMs then became Phil Rizzuto and other very talkative person His wife was eloquent. Ron Guidry. Later in his life becomes of these yogi whisper and he he was just naturally that way it was also the youngest of four boys and in you know in five kids and then the. Talian families father you know as as most fathers of that era they ruled with an iron fist. And you know I think he learned to be quiet that way. Because you didn't talk until you were. You were spoken to. And his father was a man of few words in fact all of the of the of the kids In Yoga family quite sorts. But I think to. He faced a lot of discrimination because he was a Cowan and he faced a lot of abuse because of his look because of his physical stature And because sometimes he would you know when he did talk a mangle the language and I think that Yogi just having such an appreciation for how it felt to be looked down upon and he could never bring himself to do that because he knew felt like. And and that's first of all it's rare and people second of all it's really rare among athletes and you'll give us just this guy who who liked and love people and I think people felt that and just so instantly comfortable around him I saw. This must be twenty years ago. There was a there. Aren't a lot of baseball players. Who had one man plays written about them? That were actually performed on Broadway and I saw. I saw the Yogi. Show bengals ARA. I mean one of the great actors of the second. Half of the Twentieth Century Played Yogi. I did a story about saw the play and you know I think Yogi never saw it because you know it took liberties with the real story and a lot of it revolved around his relationship with Dale Berra. And a lot of it. Dale his son. Who's been on the show recently and it was about You Know Dale's addiction right all that stuff. It is feud with Steinbrenner. Mostly the reason that and it was Carmen And unfortunately this he's white Carmen. Did yet I'm sorry Unfortunately this story didn't make it into the book. I ended up having to cut sixty pages the book. But there's a terrific story of Gonzala and right coming to Yogis House and talking about it and Kozara figures. Hey I'm from Brooklyn I'M A. I'm a revolt Italian. We're going and they did hit it off But carman was again from the start and they have a second meeting his museum where they're sitting there drinking vodka together telling stories about where it was like growing up during the depression. And you know if it was Yogi they they would have blessed Common walks in is very polite. Very nice you know Carmen. She was charming woman And very politely and Trombley said I'm sorry but we're not going to endorse this John. His new book is Yogi a life behind the mask John. It's always a pleasure. Thanks so much for coming on the show. Hey Jeremy thanks for the time appreciate it. This is the sporting life on. Espn radio and the ESPN APP. The Milwaukee brewers would be celebrating now. They're fifty first season in Milwaukee. Of course we don't know when baseball is coming back. But the brewers are the subject of new book by Adam Mckelvey who's been covering them for. Mlb DOT COM for decades. He is a native of the Milwaukee area and his new book is. The Milwaukee brewers fifty celebrating a half century of brewers baseball Adam. Thanks so much for being with us. Of course German. Thank you for having me. I gotta say I'm doing this with all due respect but I was looking at some of the numbers right I mean. The brewers I think over there fifty seasons in Milwaukee have a winning percentage of about forty eight percent which I think might be actually a little bit better than I would have guessed. And they've played a total and fifty seasons. If my math is right again I think of thirty postseason games. And they've won one pennant. No world series. Of course that one thousand nine hundred two lost in seven games to the cardinals and Keith Hernandez that whole story was Bob McClure? Who gave up the head to Hernandez in the the big game in my right. That's right no rollie fingers haunts but still to this day right so I mean you know it's easy for somebody coming from New York. You know where they've got twenty seven championships with the Yankees and before that the giants and In the dodgers and the mets well it's been a. It's been a long drought for the mets too. But we'll talk about that another time. But people forget when you talk about Milwaukee Baseball Milwaukee they forget that there were some incredible teams there fifties and early sixties. How long were the braves? Fourteen years something like that. Yeah never had a losing season. led the major leagues and attendance on a number of occasions. I nationally franchise to draw two million fans. It was a town that fell in love with its baseball. Aaron and Mathews Spawn and Bernadette. I mean It was they had those great teams and they beat the Yankees. And what was it? The fifty seven world series right and then they decamped for Atlanta. What did it mean to Milwaukee to get baseball back in nineteen seventy of course? It meant that Seattle lost the team that had for year as you already said it was the that the city was bigly again And you know it came at a time that herb Kohl had also brought the NBA to Milwaukee Just a year before and it was a big boost for town. That was really heartbroken when the braves left in in reading about that I always known the braves left town. I never knew the history of that. How a team that has been so successful at the gate and on the field and as you said at so many hall of famers suddenly decamped and I learned through this research that one of the reasons Milwaukee lost the braves was they made a policy against Kerry in beer and people were so horrified of the notion of having to buy their beer at the ballpark led to some really hard feelings. Only Milwaukee I mean that's that's that is a great story. Can you picture reeling your leg into the Ballpark for long now? Look it's more complicated than that. And I don't oversimplify simplify it. But that was certainly one factor really before the brave even decamped. Bud sheely was already trying to gather civic leaders you know. He's around thirty years old at the time To try to I save the braves when that effort failed He turned his sights to bring in almost immediately and other expansion team and he had so much heartache in close calls over and over There was an American league expansion during that period Between Sixty five and seventy are. There was National League expansion. You tell them watching Walter. O'malley announce the winner in mouth. A word that began with 'em and his heart lifted and the the word was Montreal. Heart was broken again You gotTA deal to buy the Chicago. White Sox from one of the Allen Brothers The other brother Nix. That deal hurt was broken again. So the way bud ceiling tiles this idea of bringing the Seattle pilots as you said lasted only one year. Poor attendance The ownership of at least one member of the ownership was willing to part with the team. It was as the very last chance and had that effort failed There may not be bigly baseball in Milwaukee today and a whole generation of fans including me would you know either becomes fans are twins fans or maybe just focused on the Green Bay packers. So it's a story of a close calls and sort of how feel Use this history can hang on such a thin line impact so many people in the in the decades that followed the that is sort of a story of this franchises. Well we're speaking with data. Mckelvey is new book. Is Milwaukee brewers at fifty celebrating a half century of brewers baseball? And you gotta forward by Robin Yount Hall of Famer Shortstop Center. Fielder it off the top of my head Robin Yount easily. The greatest player in franchise history right easily easily easily. was he was he full-time planets up when he was eighteen. For the brewers. Yeah a again a story of right place right time I think about that in my career sometimes. And how many of us have you know are where we are because of Sort of that idea just being ready when opportunities strikes you But feeling tells the story of a real battle within their front office in. Nineteen seventy three When the BREWERS had the third overall pick and the GM wanted a pitcher from New York The scouting director really liked their shortstop from Woodland Hills. California and they battled and battled and battled and it was ultimately the scouting directors. Call him bomber. Who himself was an infielder made it to the big leagues at age eighteen He got to select Robin Yount. And and the following spring. You're talking about nineteen seventy four. The brewers are still basically an expansion team. They've had very little success on the field and they get to spring training. The Manager del Crandall became the great Milwaukee braves. He was one of the core players of that team and He decided you know why. Not Give it a shot to the kid And Robin Yount had impressed at times in that Spring and they made the decision sort of near the camp that that's just give it to the. Let's give him a shot in the big leagues and you know really it's it took years for robbing out to become the the hall of. Famer that eventually became. It was really a four really. Disappointing seasons You set a club record as a rookie. That probably won't ever be broken for Arizona season at shortstop And really just you know didn't perform the bat until about nineteen seventy eight. So you know would it? Sometimes I think back when you look at players today and the social media age everybody wants you know Mike Trout from the second he steps foot on major league field. How many outlets four years of real struggle? And what would what would he look? His career looked like in today's game. Would it be different? Would they have the patience to stick with eventual hall of Famer sort of an impossible question to answer but one of the you know one of the best things for Robin now was that he was able to learn on the job? The next year the birds brought back Henry on to know walkie. He was a fantastic mentor for robbing out and Frank Robinson was also a great mentor for Robbing Down Played Winter Ball for Frank Robinson Robinson. Took to this kid. Was you know the sort of a cool calm southern California Guy Robinson really liked him and they'd have a couple of cocktails at the bar each night and Robin announces that was a phenomenal influence on his career. As well and he blossoms into nearly the face of this franchise you know. Maybe it's bobby maybe you can make a case for that abroad. Captured being the face of the team. But if you're talking about players there's no doubt he's the man who defines the sort of Understated blue-collar Loyal Sorta town. He's the player that he he's the face of this ranch is and I was just going to get to Bob. Euchre before we go and again we're speaking with Adam. Mckelvey from MLB DOT COM. Who's been covering the brewers for MLB for twenty years nearly and That's forty percent of the history of the franchise. Tell me Bob Euchre story and then we'll let you go. Well you know his deadpan gets you know my favorite personal Bob Story. There was a a year one of the early years. I was covering the team where they weren't very good as you said for some of those years and in the two thousands and they agreed to let sports illustrated follow the team for like a a road trip and it turned into this nightmarish road trip. They lost every game injuries. Whatever could go wrong went wrong but when the piece comes out in sports illustrated there's this fantastic photo of the guys playing Ping Pong at the cool in in Miami And in the background is Euch in a very very stylish black speedo and this thing is published in the magazine and we. He picked some ribbing for it. I think it was like the next spring. We're just talking about and totally casually in conversation. This comes up and he goes. Oh Yeah my sports illustrated swimsuit issue for some reason that line just like stuck in my head forever and and it's those types of little things that you will drop on you and you know you not even expecting to laugh and then you spend the next hour laughing about that. He said I've said many times you know it's it's it's a it's a joy to cover the T. When your team you follow makes it to the postseason. Look your mastic about covering this team. You're doing the job as a journalist. But it's it's it's you know when the teams good. It's it's a good thing you know you get to cover huge games deep into October. It's a lot of fun I've always said my team could win the next ten world series or the you know I could cover the next ten world series and nothing will be as a thrill as just standing around the batting cage with bobby you could just make you laugh He's a total joy to be around and You know I hope he gets to do it for a long time. This was supposed to be its fiftieth season On the Mike for the Milwaukee brewers hometown team. Not exactly the way he envisioned Season NUMBER FIFTY GOING. But hopefully we get some baseball forum before this yoga. That would be nice. Data McCarthy's new book. The Milwaukee brewers at fifty. Celebrating half-century brewers baseball Adam. Thanks so much for joining us. Good luck good luck with the book. Jerry I appreciate it so much thank you. This is the sporting life on. Espn radio and the ESPN APP. A quarter century ago. Baseball CAME BACK TO LIFE IN CLEVELAND. After decades of dormancy the one thousand nine hundred ninety five Indians were exciting team. They ended up winning the pennant. Losing the world series to the Atlanta braves there the subject of a new book. Cleveland rocked the personality. Sluggers magic of the nineteen ninety five Indians written by Zack. Meisel of the athletic who joins us? Now ZAC thanks for being with us. Thanks for having me Jeremy. All right so you know I I already kind of gave away You know The ending they don't win. They lose the braves that great braves team that only won one world series despite winning like forty five consecutive division championships What's so fascinating about the nineteen ninety-five Indians other than this remarkable collection of personalities and talents? Or maybe that is the most interesting thing I should say. Well you at it. Because it was really a perfect storm of a team that had been built from the ground up years in advance. And then this franchise moves into this beautiful new BALLPARK IN DOWNTOWN CLEVELAND. And the timing could not have been more perfect where you have a team emerging from this forty years slumber where they were the dregs of the league they were they reach such a low point that they had a famous movie made after them of course so that was chariots of fire. Right that was the exactly. You know your movie series. But it's just the timing was perfect and you had a city that was so desperate and so hungry for something to get behind and not only do. They have a winning team but the fashion in which they won with all these walk up victories and come from behind wins and yeah the personalities where you had an imposing slugger Albert Belle colorful characters like Omar vizquel and Kenny. Lofton savvy veterans who had been around the block. It was just the perfect mix for a city that was just waiting and waiting and waiting for exactly that I mean and and this this lineup I mean I'm looking at it now. I mean Manny Ramirez in ninety five when he's twenty three hitting thirty one home runs You've got as you mentioned. Albert Belle hit fifty that year. One hundred twenty. Six runs batted in Jim. Thome you would end up being a six hundred or two home run player and Kenny. Lofton and Omar Vizquel and Carlos by arrogance. And you've got Eddie. Murray another future hall of Famer Dave winfield another future hall of Famer. All these guys making contribution some larger than others. Obviously this incredibly exciting team. Would it mean in Cleveland to have a team? After fifty years almost fifty years. It's last World Series Championship. Nineteen forty eight that team. What did it mean to Cleveland to have a team like this Around well there's no better way to explain it than to say that two days after the Indians lost game six and the braves celebrated in Atlanta. The Indians returned to downtown Cleveland for a celebration with tens of thousands of fans packing the streets and climbing onto traffic lights and lamposts in downtown Cleveland and they lost but it meant so much to that city to finally have something some thread to get them through the summer and the early part of fall Which they had waited so long for that. And you know it came in this. Nineteen ninety five and the browns left in nineteen ninety five so it was. It really was the start of something too when I think. Of course fans were disappointed in the end result but it had been so long and really most of the people who experienced that ninety five team. We're not around the last time. The Indians had made the postseason nineteen fifty four when they didn't win a postseason game. They were swept in the world series. So it has been since nineteen forty eight since they had a playoff run. So that's forty seven years. Nobody remembered that so. This was the first time they could remember having something to keep them. Invested for six months and and so even with the end result. I think there was an appreciation for what that lineup accomplished. Full of famers or would be hall of famers should be all of famers and a pitching staff. That was pretty underrated too. They just had all of the elements. And it just really galvanized Cleveland. I gotTA admit And were speaking with Zack. Meisel about his new book. Cleveland rock the precise sluggers magic of the nineteen ninety five Indians. And I know I should know this. I was covering baseball and a daily basis. I totally forgot that Orel. Hershiser won sixteen games for them. I mean I didn't really. I mean I remember. Nagy and I remember Dennis Martinez Martinez won twelve a very good year for them. Nagy was. This is a typical kind of Charles. Sixteen and six with a four or five five year or a But hershiser WHO's thirty six went sixteen and six with a three point eight seven. Era AND JOSE. Mesa had forty six saves with a one point one three era. Yeah you think about you think about the hitters on those teams but there. There was some effective pitching going on as well as they won a hundred games. Yeah no one ever recognizes the fact that they led the American league in era and they were really good at preventing walks hits. And you didn't have much traffic on the basis and the hitters would tell the pitchers just just hold them. You don't need to throw a shutout just limit them to a few runs and let Albert Belle and Jim Thome Ian Manny Ramirez. Kenny Lofton Eddie. Murray do their thing. Unbelievable so yeah you can see if you look at the ages of the roster. It's really interesting because most of the roster was was built from within they drafted. Well they traded well You had young hitters in that lineup like told me Ramirez. And then they when they knew it was time to to hit the gas pedal. That's when they went out and they signed Dennis Martinez even though he was forty years old. They signed. Eddie Murray. Who was nearing the end of his career. And then right. Before the ninety five season they signed. Orel Hershiser to be that. If the missing cog in that rotation and hershiser ended up having a fantastic season he was the MVP of AOL CS against America. So you know. It's funny when when I think about the Indians from the mid nineties there was that you know it meant so much as well because there'd be no world series ninety four. We haven't mentioned that. So it was kind of this unique circumstance to people were hungrier for world series and perhaps They were typically. Because what happened in ninety four but two years later in ninety-seven they get to game seven Against the MARLINS and and they they lose that one when I think of the Indians of the nineties There's so much talent but they don't quite get over the top. What what's what's the team. That means more in the heart hearts and MINDS OF PEOPLE FROM CLEVELAND. The Ninety five team of ninety seven. Yeah it it's the ninety five team for a couple of reasons number one they. They hadn't disappointed anybody yet. So that's what made that summer. So special is it was all new and fresh and this it was foreign to Cleveland fans who were used to the team being in the basement by June first so that was one part of it. I think that's why people were more accepting of the end result even though they weren't happy with it obviously But in ninety seven that team didn't click until late August. They were treading water. They didn't have much of a division lead in fact they were trailing the white sox for awhile and then they played a little better down the stretch. They WANNA eighty seven games kind of limped into the playoffs and just caught fire at the right time. Had some some clutch hits some key moments in October to get to the world series but again that's by that point you're losing ninety five in the World Series Ninety six. It was a first round exit so there was more of a sense of urgency and I think fans were less forgiving especially when they had the lead in the ninth inning in game seven Miami and couldn't shut the door. Those Indians teams. Were Fun to watch. And they were exciting to cover as well remember covering current them in the ninety seven. Al CSI guess but it was a little bit of a different team at that point anyway. Zach. It's terrific of you to spend this time with us and share your memories and his New Book Zach Muzzles New Book as I said is Cleveland Rock the personality sluggers and magic of the nineteen ninety. Five Indians would a collection of talent and character Zach. Thanks so much for joining us here on the sporting life. You GotTa Jeremy. Thanks so much. Thanks for having joined us.

I-5 Series Game 1 Postgame Show

"Hello and welcome to the interstate. Five World Series Post Game. Show on Henry Showman. Well gave one of this. Golden Great Series proved once again that in the postseason. Good pitching doesn't always beat good hitting the northern California team jumped on Don Drysdale for five runs in the first inning in route to eleven. Nothing lead after three and eleven six victory. You wouldn't expect score like that in a game hitting Don Drysdale for the southern Californians and Randy Johnson for northern Californians on the mound but seal stadium. San Francisco played really small. The teams combined for seven homers including a pair of shots in the first inning by Barry Bonds and Joe Morgan. The first of two for bonds in the Game Ricky Henderson hit a three run homer as well for northern California while Jackie Robinson Duke. Snider and Robin. Yount all went deep for the so cal's in all the nor pounded Drysdale and Garrett Cole for five runs a Peach. The big unit was not particularly sharp allowing five runs in eight innings. But he had a lot of room to play with Dennis. Eckersley pitched the ninth to finish. That always important game. One we now bring in northern California manager Bruce Jenkins and Bruce this game to use one of your favorite words was Nettie while Henry any time you open with a win a seal stadium. You have to feel like you're having a good day. It was a beautiful day at Seals stadium a lot of nostalgia in the air. I love how worked out when we ride away. Ricki Henderson's on Bass Barry Bonds homers he homers again and then Ricky Ricky homers and Morgan homers. It was it was. I hate the word. Surreal because everybody says it in every sentence but it was a little bit strange to West Andres. They'll get lit up like that and Garrett Cole as well so it was just it was so delightful Henry that because they were. We were at seals stadium. And we're thinking back to the past. I was able to get Joe Cronin Tony Area Harryhelmet and left. Do in the game and different. These are all San Francisco legends. Yeah absolutely I mean Left Yo duels from Bayview High School. Harry Heilmann sacred. Heart's so is Joe Cronin and Tony. Lozari is Galileo I mean. We're Talking Way San Francisco and you know the pope in the postseason. We know it's it's not like the regular season at all nine. Nine hundred sixty four don drysdale gave up fifteen homers in over three hundred innings and He was just beaten around and You know what happens sometimes when you have a great pitcher who gets a huge lead? They lead up a little bit and That that seems to have happened a little bit with Randy Johnson With an eleven nothing lead yet room to play with and gave up five runs. And you know a couple of guys who played in in an old ballpark in Brooklyn are took him deep as well but You know it. I mean the lead was big enough that Dan. You're really neat. Dennis Eckersley in the ninth inning with that Big Leap. But you went to him anyway. Well I I wanted to make sure I won this game. I if somehow this game gets away from me. I've lost the opener at home. It's like what the hell you know. What's this guy doing did? It's a little bit extreme at everybody that you bring in is is a great pitcher could have been tug McGraw Righetti or one of the starters but I Ran Johnson a lot of rope and let him go with eight because the big lead and then I just close it out with a hammer. Were you just afraid of the glare? You would get if you'd gone out to the mound before the eighth inning to take him out. Yeah I got a lot of glares hitting fifth. He wasn't happy. So celebs a grumpy day at the yard. But it wound up being a lot of fun well game one win is is very important than and of course when you can set a tone with a big first inning like northern Californians. Did you know that that's all important? It takes the pressure off. Any pitcher takes pressure off the defense and The game started right away. Ricky Henderson did what Ricky Anderson does He drew a walk from Drysdale to start the game and then up stepped Berry bonds batting second in the lineup which is not where he's used to batting but he upset Barry Bonds number two and this is what happened with Joe. Let me yeah four. Three two and this is what happened with John. Miller on the call. Henderson leads away from Second. Drysdale checks now. The pitch bonds swung that boiling blasted. You can forget about this. One what I shot straight away. Centerfield and over everything maybe headed all the way to the bay bridge and incredible hormone by bonds over the four hundred ten footlocker over the scoreboard out into the parking lot and onto sixteenth street. Heading if not all the way to the Bay Bridge and Northern California had jumped ahead to nothing. Only two batters in the game if that weren't enough Joe Morgan a big home. Run in the first inning. And and you know bruce the even the even the southern California managers when they when they looked at the new lineup for Northern California and saw that saw that outfield A An outfielder Ricky Anderson and Barry Bonds you get D. H. Today and I mean Frank Robinson you know this is going to be trouble for the northern for the southern California team. Yeah Yeah and Joe Dimaggio Etcetera. I don't think I'm going to be messing with that group as the series goes on. It's so beautiful. Those those four at the top is really frightening is what it is. The whole lineup is good. I know they're pretty daunting for southern California. They're going to be seeing a lot of those same guys for sure. Okay so you're not going to be one of those tinkerers so I'm GonNa do some tinkering. I'm intending to get everybody some meaningful play. I feel real good about getting those four old timers system early action left. Doolan Harry Heilmann actually made plays in the outfield late in that game so It's it's a serious goes on. I'm going to give other guys a shot but that that top four. I'm not sure I mess with that Certainly no time soon. Okay and I imagine that you'll be able to With with so many good defensive outfielders out there imagine that Barry Bonds will probably continue in the designated hitter all really hit two homers today and it was the defensive ratings in a PBA. The Max you can get us. An outfielder is a three and ricky and bonds both Aba three so in terms of the game itself. Having Ricky out there then. That's a big debate. But you know bonds looks comfortable in the D. H. Lada. Hit Two out so why not? Just leave that alone. Okay and you know you you also have two of the biggest Well let's be frank. Terms read ashes in baseball with the big unit on the mound and Jackie Robinson. At the play You know right off the bat. I mean just to have Jackie Robinson playing in a world series game at Seals Stadium. I imagine that was pretty exciting. Actually both teams in the fans. You know it really was and Jackie homered off Randy Johnson. I'm just thinking. Yeah that's so cool. That's just that's just a great moment and Duke Snider as well as you mentioned that such a great thing. You've got two guys from the Brooklyn Dodgers James Against the big unit. Who's very modern day and I was just waiting for a bird to cross thrust in front of Randy Johnson and throw fastball that since the Burj. The feathered choir. Okay well the northern California team a big advantage up one nothing in a series that shifts to candlestick Park Tomorrow. And you know how candlestick plays a although in October. It can be pretty warm and as we've seen balls can fly out there to As well at this time of year and I mean what an advantage to have a one. Nothing lead and Tom seaver on the mound of you must be pretty pretty excited to manage that one. Well no question and especially against Walter Johnson going back to like nineteen thirteen People who saw him Fitch said these the fastest pitcher they ever saw. Even you know even as they came into the modern era he was like a Nolan Ryan. Colfax Kinda Guy So unbelievable matchup. They all are really. But you know Walter Johnson against Against Frank Robinson against Joe Dimaggio. This is what it's all about it. Serious fun well. Game One was a big day for San Carlos. Barry Bonds yet Oakland Ricky Anderson Oakland also. Joe Morgan With see round. Now tomorrow it'll be it'll be all about Fresno and I look forward to the game and I wish you well and Game Two becks Henry. We'll talk to them. That your game one. Recap SUBSCRIBE TO THE GIANTS.

Let me yeah four. Three two and this is what happened with John. Miller on the call Henderson leads away from Second Drysdale checks now. The pitch bonds swung that is blasted. You can forget about this one. What I shot straight away. Centerfield and over everything maybe headed all the way to the bay bridge and incredible hormone by bonds over the four hundred ten footlocker over the scoreboard out into the parking lot and onto sixteenth street. Heading if not all the way to the Bay Bridge and Northern California had jumped ahead to nothing. Only two batters in the game if that weren't enough Joe Morgan a big home. Run in the first inning. And and you know bruce the even the even the southern California managers when they when they looked at the new lineup for Northern California and saw that saw that outfield A An outfielder Ricky Anderson and Barry Bonds you get D. H. Today and I mean Frank Robinson is going to be trouble for the northern for the southern California team. Yeah Yeah and Joe Dimaggio in center. I don't think I'm going to be messing with that group as the series goes on. It's so beautiful. Those those four at the top is really frightening is what it is. The whole lineup is good. I know they're pretty daunting for southern California but they're going to be seeing a lot of those same guys for sure. Okay so you're not going to be one of those tinkerers so I'm GonNa do some tinkering. I'm intending to get everybody some meaningful play. I feel real good about getting those four old timers system early action left. Doolan Harry Heilmann actually made plays in the outfield late in that game so It's it's a serious goes on. I'm going to give other guys a shot but that that top four. I'm not sure I mess with that Certainly no time soon. Okay and I imagine that you'll be able to With with so many good defensive outfielders out there I imagine. Barry Bonds will probably continue in the designated hitter. All Willie hit two homers today and it was the defensive ratings in a PBA. The Max you can get us. An outfielder is a three and ricky and bonds both Aba three so in terms of the game itself. Having Ricky out there then. That's a big debate. But you know bonds looks comfortable in the D. H. Lada. Hit Two out so why not? Just leave that alone. Okay and you know you you also have two of the biggest Well let's be frank. Terms read ashes in baseball with the big unit on the mound and Jackie Robinson at the play Know Right off the Bat. I mean just to have Jackie Robinson playing in a world series game at Seals Stadium. I imagine that was pretty exciting. Actually both teams in the fans. You know it really was and Jackie homered off Randy Johnson. I'm just thinking. Yeah that's so cool. That's just that's just a great moment and Duke Snider as well as you mentioned that such a great thing. You've got two guys from the Brooklyn Dodgers James Against the big unit. Who's very modern day and I was just waiting for a bird to cross thrust in front of Randy Johnson and throw fastball that since the Burj. The feathered choir. Okay well the northern California team a big advantage up one nothing in a series that shifts to candlestick park tomorrow and you know how candlestick plays although in October. It can be pretty warm and as we've seen balls can fly out there to As well at this time of year and I mean what an advantage to have a one. Nothing lead and Tom seaver on the mound of you must be pretty pretty excited to manage that one. Well no question and especially against Walter Johnson going back to like nineteen thirteen People who saw him Fitch said these the fastest pitcher they ever saw. Even you know even as they came into the modern era he was like a Nolan Ryan. Colfax Kinda Guy So unbelievable matchup. They all are really. But you know Walter Johnson against Against Frank Robinson against Joe Dimaggio. This is what it's all about it. Serious fun well. Game One was a big day for San Carlos. Barry Bonds yet Oakland Ricky Anderson Oakland also. Joe Morgan With see round amok.

We'll start this story of this game at the end which couldn't have been more thrilling. Barry bonds hit four homers in the first few games of the series came to bat with two outs. The bases loaded in northern California team down for bonds could have tied the game with one swing and the way he was going in this series. You you thought there was no way he'd sale but rollie fingers brought that That big mustache onto the mount He had created the mess and then he got out of it by getting bonds to pop out for the twenty seventh out so Jim Palmer started for the so counts provided a performance. They needed to avoid going down three. Oh in the series It helped that his offense hounded cease about the for five runs on a two run mark. Maguire homer in the first three run blasts from Fred Lynn in second lefty Gomez Relieved Sabathia and Kinda made a case that he should have maybe been that starting pitcher in this game. He had six in the third shutout innings of. He gave an account offense a chance but they couldn't capitalize and I bring in northern California manager Bruce Jenkins And while Bruce. You're managing this team in this in this series gate. Capper's winner set the rotation for the first three games and Samantha was a controversial choice. I mean what what the options have been Gomez imagine would have been one. Oh without a doubt Pitching for the nineteen thirty four Yankees. One of the Great World Series pitchers ever she look it up and you know A good change of pace as a left-hander Would have been a wonderful choice. Dave Stewart would have been a good choice. I'm sure anybody who follow Dave Stewart's Oakland A.'s career about big money pitcher. Whoever came along We got CC. from Kappler's call. It didn't work out. I will say that as I met the press afterward my first words were Edam capper. What the Hell is no? Actually I didn't even mention copper. I I'm not going to say you know this is not my fault. Sees a hell of a pitcher. He got hammered. He got hammered by two of the best. And that's the thing here. I mean you talked about Mark Maguire and Fred Wynn and not everybody's GonNa stand out so Put us in a hall and now this is series. Yeah I mean this was the biggest homerun Fred Linnet since he took Atley Hammock or deep for the first Grand Slam in all star game history in nineteen three. He probably came to the blade. Thank Gosh I sure. Wish I had Atlantic around the mountain and not see cease about the but he made the most of the lefty Gomez six and a third shutout innings left. He was an easier one of the greatest world. Series pitchers ever wasn't he? Yeah I think he was was he five and lifetime. I'd have to look that up. I I know. We're using his nineteen thirty four season in particular but he was just an automatic in the world. Series you know. It's huge part of those great teams with Joe Dimaggio. Bill dickey read Ralph. You know before Before the mantle and Damange era Jo. Jody was work in there too but Yeah Lefty Gomez you know he Talk about the conversation. The dugouts Game three and he's still not starting but man to go six in a third allowing one hit against this is phenomenal yet. A phenomenal performance by Gomez You know it's too bad. It was kind of wasted in. I wouldn't say garbage time because the game was still close but You know he wasn't able to pitch with a lead that well and unfortunately or the nor kaos Jim Palmer just I mean he just had a great game which you would expect from him I presume you with pitching with pants on not just in underwear And there's this other the northern California lineup which is which is a heck of a lineup Just couldn't come back and so this game started the way. The first two did up north at Seals Stadium and candlestick park with the home team. Getting a first inning jump with belong ball. Samatha walked Ted Williams which will happens a lot. in the series and in real life that brought Mark Maguire to the plate and risk. John Miller the call last half of the first inning. Nothing nothing but Ted Williams who walked at first base and Mark Maguire at the plate against Sabathia Maguire big right handed batting slugger and the pitch and he hits deep way back into center field. This has a chance way back. They're still gun and homer for Mark Maguire into big Mac in a tough race. You hit a home run here. A dodger stadium and just like that southern California needing a win has eight to nothing lead the so cows continue their assault on Savannah in the second inning. Robin Yount it. A double over Willie startles head into the right field corner Ke- and catcher lance parrish walks. I think Paris getting his first. Start of the series. Then the big blow a three run homer by Fred Lynn. That gave the so cows five. Nothing lead so right off the bat we have five runs with Jim. Palmer on the mound. Protect the lead. It's almost a reverse image of game to when the nor cows took an early lead and Tom. Seaver ran with it and pitch three hitter for the win. Bruce what is that? You've loved watching. Jim Palmer throw over the years and one of the most stylish pitchers ever. I'll never forget the nineteen seventy nine world series in Baltimore. One starts warm up down the third base line and and as Palmer finished his warm ups and started walking toward the Orioles dugout fans standing. You know like the wave as he asks they all stood and applauded him such great history and so much so much so much to come from him And he did strip down later for the benefit of the of the cameras for for the audience out there in the locker room. He did to his post game in his undies which woods at that was only right but but I love gym. I Love Jim Palmer. Love watching him work. He had a beautiful pitching motion. And you know what a career Jim Curtin recently wrote that. Jim Palmer never gave up a grand slam and on a couple of times in his career he actually walked a guy with the basis loaded not blatantly but he walked the guy just knowing he could get the next guy because that Grand Slam thing meant so much. I'm sure it was like eight to one at the time. But wasn't five to four light when Buck showalter had five debris when Buck showalter. Barry Bonds walked intentionally so he could face. Brent main a little bit of yeah so We It the northern California team is is down finding itself down by multiple runs for the first time in the series at bonds who had already hit a bunch of home runs. Had a chance to get the knockouts back into the game when he batted with a runner on in a run in the seventh inning. Now Southern California manager Houston which will turn to Trevor Hoffman. Who is Dave Roberts? Pick to close day. Robert said he would would go with Hoffman because he loved that. Change up and it worked out. Osman struck out. Barry Bonds Barry Bonds of the players Northern California tries to get back into the game. Bonzo four home runs in the first two games of the series was over three against Jim Palmer today but now he's got to move on. And Trevor Hoffman in for the bullpen. Deflation him sixty to southern California leading papa with the great changeup and even bonds has troubles with. Trevor Hoffman. Two strikes account and the pitch this piece struck out and that chain still sixty to southern California. Going to the last of the center About when you heard Dave Roberts with all the closers southern California's had what are your thoughts about Having using Hoffman in Well this is not closing situation. It was in the seventh inning. But sort of picking him as the as the guy that he would want in the ninth inning but tight game. Yeah well as as it happened In as the voting went there were a lot of tremendous. Relief pitchers Redan quizzing. Berry comes quick quickly to mind southern. California relievers that could have made this staff as it happened with the fans votes. The only real relievers were often end. Rollie fingers so You know Dave was partial to Hoffman. And what can you say? I mean these The San Diego fans will argue just as seriously for him as the as would be for for Riley. But you know bonds had gone over three against Palmer which spoke highly of Palmer. But but Houston wanted Hoffman here and I got you know. He threw a changeup and and struck out. Bond Stan the inning. We'll you know Houston is a tinkerer. We all know that. But you know. There's a lot of tinkering in this series. Because you made it clear in the know before the series again that it had thirty four players on each team in the old days in a world series. You might have ten eleven guys. Play all seven games if it went that far but you wanted to get as many of the northern California players in as you cut right. Yeah I started Keith Hernandez in game two at candlestick Cappuccino high in San Bruno. And you just look down the abandon when we get to the East Bay. I'm going to be looking at curt flood and Willie McGee and Jimmy Rollins. Now it's just it's amazing in Houston. I both agreed that we're not going to make this a circus but at the same time you WanNa get guys in game one. I got a bunch of Old San Francisco. Guys got four guys from back in time into that game and and menaces surviving so. That's kind of the way we both want to do it. We WanNA win. We don't want to make it a joke that we want to get players in there too. Okay I didn't I didn't hear a word you said because the sound system dodger stadium was so loud loud last year's all I I heard the word circus and then I heard that at Annonay. Beethoven's coming in next Beethoven okay from strike three as he wrote so long ago. We we go to the ninth inning and the Northern California team did rally rally against Raleigh Raleigh. Rally Harry Heilmann through a pinch walk. Aaron Judge also came up as a pinch hitter. And he got a pinch base at Ricky Henderson walked that loaded the bases And so the Northern California team down sixty two had something going here and it seemed like even though he went over three against Palmer and then got struck out by off men It seemed like with the bases loaded and the northern California's down four down to their last out It was good to have barry bonds. Up didn't go the way the nor cows wanted A to. And here's how John Miller sixty to southern California would to down in the ninth inning but rollie fingers who got the first two hitters easily enough then walked Harry. Heilmann gave up a pinch hit single Aaron judge and then he walked Ricky Henderson and now barry bonds comes up. Bonds is the possible tying run. And He's already hit. Four home runs in this series. Although he's over three today Jim Palmer retired three straight times. So here's fingers with tension and drama plenty at dodger stadium and he throws bonds swings hops. It UP FIRST BASEMENT. Maguire over new the bag. He's got it and that budget a drama in the ninth with a hands on for the win sixty to southern California. Now it's two games. One Northern California had the scene shifts to Anaheim for game four tomorrow all right sixty to northern California lost northern California still has a two to one lead in series in As I hope that the fans are figured out so far it the series is going to be played in a bunch of different stadiums and tomorrow if game. Four will be a at Angel Stadium of Anaheim of Los Angeles of Angel Land of Marino land of Anaheim Brusca. You made a decision. You decided not to bring Randy Johnson back on shore grasp but instead you're turning to Dave Stewart and gave Kappler didn't select for one of the first three starts on Stephen. Strasburg will go for the so cows and I'm just wondering if your decision not to have Randy Johnson back on short risk had anything to do with your head. My debt decision have been different if the nor cows were behind in the series. Well Yeah I mean I. We certainly haven't seen the last of Randy. Johnson don't I'm expecting things to get Interesting because So much respect for that southern California team but I I needed Dave Stewart to have a start in this series. And I wasn't GonNa wait any longer. I mean he just simply has to s Roger Clemens. Who about Dave Stewart? Who beat him at every big game they ever faced so It's going to be stew and you know I'm leaving it open for the rest of it. Who who knows how. It's going to go after that. We'll see how this goes but feel good about Stuart Pitching bitching tomorrow in Anaheim. Lord knows those Angel Fans Have Memories of Stuart Shutting Down Their team. So let's see okay.

No see at the parties. And I've crossed you over before, Dan. Listen. What we go here every time. And they never cross me over. He's never we. We played one time. We did play one time.

Stay in front of anybody. But I yeah. Yeah. You hit you hit a jumper now. It's like, okay. So now it's on. And then I was like, whoa. Oh, but he can't move his no lateral movement. No. No. Yeah.

You're kind of a black, man. Tim Legler a little bit. Yeah. Yeah. A little bit better than legs. I mean legs never did he ever touch the lame. Did he ever entire career touch? I love I see Kevin out in the hall. And during the commercial break, he goes, man, I wish Josh Juma would still been here man, I'm ever plan against him. And I'm talking trashed it. And I said why are you talking trash to Josh to? Mel it was the craziest thing we're in the entertainment league, the NBA entertainment league and Fergie was sitting in the stands they hadn't even gotten married yet. And I just I looked up and I was like, oh, wow Parke's here. And then I was checking Josh. And I was like you'll you brought you girl to the gym. And then I hit a jumper. And I was like yo you better get your girl out of your business. And I started losing my mind. And if I sign. This. It's you know, how it is. When you play basketball. And then Josh looked at me. I like I was crazy then he started laughing because then he missed a jumper. And I was like your gate your jumpers garbage. And I was saying loud enough. So I could hear me, but the best part was that I getting acting act, and he laughed and laughed and laughed. But then I went right from the game to the Grammys on the red carpet and Fergie the first thing she says when the black peas walkup is like your guy right there. Talks a lot of junk. And how's this like I was having an out about experience? Like, losing my mind. Josh the best G for other people you play against who else. Do you play against? All. I do is talk that you all know, we hit a point where. Now, that's all I talk. I just walk up and down. And I saw a lot of walking talking one little spurt. You know, you have a spurt, and you're like you can't even checking the young guys who come to my house. I always tell them. I'm older than your dad, and I'm giving it to you. And I actually played with a guy named Steve Carlton who is the general manager of the NBC affiliate here. Now he is over sixty and still plays three times a week. And so he's like, my my basketball sense and we play together. And it's a mess. What other actors to play? All all all the guys played NBA illeg. I mean, there was everybody was in that thing played in. It wasn't that. I act it will a little bit. But I mean, we'll for him. But I, you know, we'll laughed what's whose first team all NBA all entertainment league awhile back in the day. I'm gonna go back in the day. I'm gonna back up. Brian McKnight was really good. And there were a couple of guys you hadn't heard pooping Wigan who played for deer members. You remember kooky? No. He was the point guard win Seton Hall loss to Michigan. He was the point guard. And now he runs all Kevin Hart stuff. He murdered guys in the entertainment league can come in heart play basketball. Listen, that's entertainer basketball. And let me say this guys in Hollywood talk about they can play there's a handful. But most of them are just due to like you, and I can still get out and run with Sandler can still play. Okay. As adam. When here what you know, we we we went one on one I had on a full suit. I wore full sue. Due to to the movie sets. I'm not gonna say which one and adamant I play basketball on the set. We we went at it. You know, Adam can tell you the story in a full suit and shoes. So you took him in a full suit and shoes elected. But look, I'm older. Listen, I'm letting those days though, letting those days, I don't think so Dan, I don't take. So they never leave. Nice hard, man. It's hard. I don't let it go. But you know, the interesting thing about the entertainment league was that. There were some quick like there were people who took it. So seriously that they lost their minds. And there were guys who you were just like, yo you you can't act like that Rappaport was crazy out of every single Michael Rapaport. Get kicked out of every game. He would lose his mind cursing yelling screaming at the refs. And listen Michael's a good guy. But he has no game. But I mean, if he goes to the hoop, he better get a foul. And if he doesn't he is screaming and cursing and losing his was crazy all day. Evan Frazier entertainment tonight co host and he is hosting that Thanksgiving Day parade on CVS live from New York. Fire's effect you yet. Well, they didn't affect me personally with my family, but we've been out there for the last three days in it. It's tough to see the devastation because we're with Robin Thicke. And when he went back to his house, and he lost everything. The first thing he said is like you expect to go there and see just something a picture a doll or something. But the fires were burning so hot they burned everything down. But I will say these celebrities all of them that we have dealt with the first thing they are worried about is the first responders the firemen their neighbors. They're going there to help. They're like we can rebuild. We'll we'll be back. But we also want to help these other people. What can we do lady Gaga going to the shelters? You know, all these Chris Martin so many people out there doing good things. So hats off to all of the celebs who are helping. And I saw a reg when I first flew in Reggie Miller with his family said what we have is what we have on our backs because they had to evacuate and then his house is safe. But he showed me the video, and I was telling the danettes you could see like it looked like it was in black and white. It's crazy because that's all you were saying and the fire went right up to his back porch. And the problem also is the smoke damage, so many these people your house didn't burn it's the smoke damage, and you go in and you're like, whoa. They're gonna have to paint, maybe some of these walls. Listen, it is a national disaster. And we have to help all these people not only in southern California. But also in northern California because when you fly we were in a helicopter on Wednesday and we flew over. And it looks like the moon. It's just scorched earth as far as you can see it will blow your mind, and it's gonna take a while to rebuild and help these. So we we have to all chip in. And do what we can. I know that the entertainment value with the Lakers the that it's there's a referendum after every game on this team. It feels like yes and everybody is pleading to be patient. But then nobody is being patient here. All the first of all look at the team the way it's constructed right now and understand that it won't be that way next year that gonna go into free agency, and they're going to go big. And whether it's chasing, you know, whether it chasing, Anthony Davis, whoever they're going after someone and they plan on getting someone. So what is happening right now is just it's this year. They're not gonna wanna championship this year. They're just relax everybody, take a deep breath. But the thing is the cachet with abroad is when he came back here. Everybody was so desperate thirsty for Showtime after two brutal years that it was like, oh, we're we're back back. It's we're we're we're the basketball's better now. And by the way, with LeBron I'm more in to what he has done off the basketball court to what he is doing on the basketball court. Yes, he may be the greatest ever to play basketball. But also the things he's doing off the court and the way he changing the narrative from his school to the kitty sending to school to college to what they're doing with Springhill entertainment here in Hollywood in the kind of programming. And they're putting out it is phenomenal. And I can't say enough about that. And I wish more athletes would look at how their own they will they need to start. They need to start because there's some news out there with a lot of money who are just blowing it on t shirts record labels, and that that needs us out. Well, I think that they're going to look at the blueprint of how to do it. You know, Kobe is giving you a little bit of a blue hat as well. Jordan. Of course, gave you a blueprint. Yep. But but LeBron with that production company. And I mean, I talked to somebody who met his son and said, you know, I kinda went into it thinking that he was going to be the kid that was stuck up or full of himself and said Vanni his son brawny he couldn't have been a nicer kid. And I said, you know, what you gotta give his as wife as Mon brownies mama lot of credit with because she stays in the shadow with savannah doesn't get enough credit for how she is helped raise these kids, but also supported LeBron and he has done a great job. Think about this. He has been at the top of the food chain for all this time. And he is stay out of trouble. He has been a great example and a great leader for not only his team, but his community, and that is something that you. When you look at LeBron you should look at him and say will there ever be another athlete like that who plays at that high level who can do so much for? So that people don't embrace him. Because people look at basketball, and here's what I will say when it comes to community. I look LeBron. I go back to the guys in sixty eight in Jim Brown in those guys and what they were doing their community empowerment. And that's why when I see LeBron. No, I see. Oh, that's a guy who got it. It's like he was he he saw that blueprint. He was he knew those guys in. Now, he is taking that one step further. And I don't understand why people all about basket, but they're critical of him as a basketball player. Here's what I say about people being critical of the bra number one. Is he the best or at least the the top three of all time? Yes. Without a doubt. Okay. Are you mad at about him moving around teams? Okay. Well, if you had those same opportunities in your job say, you know, you could move in your job so tomorrow tomorrow and say tomorrow, Jim Rome calls you an offers. You four times the money. Pretty what do you do? What do you do? What's your answer? Mandate back. Hi, compensate me to go take that job. And I I'm sure Dan would match what he did say that properly. I would not match. By the way. And by the way, Dan, let's go back to our ESPN days. I mean, we both found better opportunities. Yeah. And, you know, don't be I'm not mad at you. And I'm surely not mad and be. So if you have a better opportunity, you have an opportunity to do something great. What's wrong? Well, we we always say why they took like Durant took the easy way out. Oh, well, that's that's who wants to way Lega. Right. But also look at look at with Durant and people don't understand the VC funds in the stuff that he's involved with you know, outside of basketball step away from basketball for a second and see how these guys are using their money by Kevin's using it in a really smart way. He's made a move. He he's Kevin Frazier. And I will say you've got nice jumper. You do. You did a nice nice jumper. I will tell you this, Dan. What broke my heart is? I built a a little, you know, quarter court in my backyard because I was like my boys are gonna come up there and play every day. Yeah. This is going to be amazing. I go outside and built it for me. I go on shoot. My boys have turned into a soccer field. And it breaks my heart. They've got soccer nets up now and everything in its devastation. You guys understand it's devastating. If you had to put a week's pay on tiger versus Phil. Oh tiger. It's notting. I think tiger will fill up. I think tires are life Ila. See I wish they would put up their own money. I don't even care because I think there's so much pride in the things that go we forget about there was a few years where it was. There was some real animosity between us to where it was like they were on. The course looking each other like, oh, really? Oh, you think you're the guy. No, I'm the guy tiger. I love last night on TNT where he said just look at my record L. Let's just look into record score VAR right score. A lot of seconds and thirds. This. It's good to see a safe travels to New York. We always love seeing you. Thank you. It is always great being here and seeing the boys Kevin Frazier entertainment tonight coast guys, tell Nancy I said, I will give Nancy a hug for you. And by the way, next time. I come I gotta bring air again because this is the tragedy happening over here tragedy. They've quit. They quit on me. It's like they've been married like we've been married so buddy look decent over there with the danettes. I mean, no unless you're I mean, I I'm going to school conference. So I can be dressed like this. I don't these guys are at their job their national TV people watch you every single day millions listen to you and guys what's going on with happened. They gave up they gave two long. Yeah. Yeah. Paulie? Our job is always to make Dan look good. And I think we're doing it today. Did a great job. Yeah. Fritzy's leading the pack. That's what I gotta say. All my John. Salted. Plus you got him on Friday after a week. And yeah. Yeah. So it's not pretty yeah. Not that. It was better on Monday. When we got here like these guys who pack in a little bag just a little tiny bag. What's wrong with that dog? You have close.

Kevin frazier. A lot of fun. It's always got great stories told us the first time he met Halle Berry and he just kept staring at her belly button. While he's interviewing. MVP's were announced yesterday. Mookie Betts and Christian yelich winning the MP's. Now, this is the first season in which the NBP's came from the teams with the best record in each league. The last time that happened was nineteen ninety with Ricky Henderson and Barry Bonds, see brewers outfitter joining us now Christian first of all congratulations. Where are you today? Thank you. Actually up in Westlake village right now. Where you affect your parents? They lived there where they -ffected by the fires. Yeah. I mean, they they got pretty close a lot of friends and family that were affected as well. And is it tough week for everybody in California, really northern California, southern California. And so had that shooting down the street. So you really feel for everyone you for the first responders 'cause I without them, you know, definitely gonna worst week. But did you see when you got home the surrounding area? It's just a lot of lot of black. Everything's burned. Everything's charred. But luckily for us for the most part everything in our neighborhood making it out. All right. But unfortunately, people can't say the same. You just feel for them. You wanna do your part you want to help out as much as you can and try to help everybody get back on their feet. How did you find out that you'd won the MVP? Right there live right on the TV. Have it your earpiece you're doing the show, and they tell you only come back from break. We're gonna let you know the winters, and my earpiece is still on and they're still talking and then asking everybody to come into the shot. And that's kind of what kind of what I knew that. I want to celebrate with friends and family and just be around all those people that I've been around since I was really young and not a big impact on my life. If I would've told you at the beginning of the season, you're going to be the MVP. What would you have said? Yeah. Out of college crazy. I remember Stanton one last year where we're in Miami. And he ended up one in the ward he's from out here as well. So we went celebrated basically your ago to the day. And I remember saying how cool was that? He wanted to be p and it never crossed my mind that actually be in his shoes you later. It's been a phenomenal years with a lot of fine. We had a great team. Milwaukee you came up just short of the World Series. But I this is a great way basically end the two thousand eighteen baseball season. If you're gonna put your finger on what happened in the second half of the season because you've always been good with talent. But something happened in the second half of the season where you just went nuclear. Yeah. You know, I think as a player you're always trying to improve on what you've done years prior always looking to learn about yourself. And I think you're constantly learning your swing? What you do you do? Well, which you do when you struggle and try and make adjustments and going all survey this year, we're struggling team. I was playing the way I wanted to play. And you know, he came back after that four day break you played the game. And just something so good the cage they'll to repeat it throughout the second half. They repeat that feeling having understanding what I wanted to do every night and just focus not race. And I think it brought the best idea who's the pitcher frustrated you this year. You know, it's it's for the last few years. It's been it's been Clayton. Richard from from the Padre. So he's got something about him is just you know, I don't see him while he gives me a tough time. And yes, the answer that everybody would think. But. Yeah. Oh, always. Yeah. That's. Don't see eight guys in your answer is not surprising because I can ask great hitters. I could say who gave you the most trouble. And then they'll tell you somebody in you go, I don't even who that is or you know, certainly not a hall of Famer. So I'm not I'm not surprised at that. But there's always like a quirk with somebody's delivery or just, you know, how how you view them or what the pitches, you know, it just it affects you, so I'm not surprised I saw where degrom got the other first place vote. What did you think of him winning the Cy Young? Yeah. He had an unbelievable here. And obviously the opportunity play a bunch more. You're both in the NFL east. And he's got he's got unbelievable stop. He's a great pitcher. And you know, it's just every time Faso's. Well deserved. He had an unbelievable year. Definitely happy for him. Did you play other sports grownup? I definitely basketball and football before high school, and then once I got to high school, I just play baseball. Because that's what is best at all. My friends ended up doing and figured I'd ride it out see off, our we could take this whole thing. And I know that up working out. All right. Did you grow up dodger fan? Yeah. I mean, I went to Dodger Stadium a lot from being in the area. That's just how I learned baseball. My first major league baseball games were all dodger games and. Yeah. I guess you could say dodger fan how often you replay game seven against the dodgers in your head. Not a lot. I wish it worked out different having a habit. A game seven at home to go to the World Series. And we basically had everything lined up to what we wanted it. But that's baseball. Just doesn't work out. Yeah. This guy think it's going to go all the time. But it's probably team proud of what we accomplished this year. It sucked at the time, obviously. But we can improve on that. Well, congrats as a wonderful season you flirted with the triple crown two homers shy of leading in that and one RBI shy as well. So great great performance this year and nearly making it to the World Series as well. Great story Christian. Hopefully, your parents are safe. And we appreciate you. Joining us. Thank you shit. That's Christian yelich, the brewers outfielder first brewer to win a batting championship. And for some reason, I thought Paul Molitor or Robin yount would. Have won a batting title. I don't know what kind. Well, Hank Aaron was a Milwaukee. Brave. I don't know if he ever won a batting title. But. Molitor had a bunch of big seasons. He had a three forty one at three twenty five three thirty two. But he was always like a top three top four in fraud. Batting average. And Robin yount never want to he wanted to MVP checking. But those are those are big numbers by yelich three twenty six thirty six homers one hundred ten RBI's and four hundred on base percentage. And I was talking to mclovin about this that, you know, I do there is a place for analytics in baseball. I just think sometimes we get a little too crazy with it. But I do think because of analytics Jake Jacob degrom won the Cy Young, and rightfully so. But I don't know if the voters would have voted him in with ten wins ten years ago. I just I don't think they would've love. Yeah. Maybe he's got great analytics, but baseball specially that's the most of all sports. Right. I know we have it on basketball. Yeah. But baseball to one to one relation between the pitcher and the batter you can really measure what's going on now. But he heated up after the all star break hitting three sixty seven twenty five homers and that was in sixty five games in second half. You want to know his exit philosophy his four knowing you. I do not. Sunday night football. It'll be the windy city. All eyes on the windy city.

Results of the poll question. They're mclovin. Are the warriors the favorites next year without Kevin Durant? Fifty one percent say no, all right? I think they would be. But it depends on where. Kevin durant? Durant would go to the Lakers. Then Golden State might not be I would still consider them the favorites. But it depends on there's a lot that's going to happen here. I don't think Durant stays in Golden State. You know, then you've gotta decide can you keep the big three. Can you keep Draymond green? Klay Thompson there with Steph curry as you move forward. But I think Kevin Durant plays. Elsewhere. Any chance that there's another favorite out there. Like, maybe the Celtics are the raptors talking in the west. Yeah, I feel like it's been warriors. Lebron now for eight years or so I being somebody's gotta rise up and be in this picture besides Katie. And LeBron Celtics got a figure they have plenty of time, but they have to figure out sort of the whole rotation here. Yes, sixers. Yeah. I mean, they have to be in there. I wanna see what happens with Embiid. Ben simmons. That's that's what I want to say. Yes. Could you see the Celtics taking some of those second tier guys Rozier, and maybe packaging them, you know, two for one type thing because they may have too many people for the minutes the thing that I thought if you could do it is you take Jalen Brown in your take Terry Rozier. And maybe they got draft picks that you could give a couple of draft picks to New Orleans get Anthony Davis because there's a chance that if you know, Anthony Davis is now with LeBron's people. You don't have to work too hard to connect the dots. There of where he would want to end up or maybe would want to end up. But I could see that'd be something that Boston could do. Yes. Lebron? Maybe it's taken a year. Lakers figure out what we have here. And then make some moves after that would be my strategy because makes sense. He just needed to have a full roster here Tyson Chandler's, you know, on his last legs even contributed already javale McGee is I think better than advertised but Rondos out for three to five weeks with a broken hand and a land. Stevenson. I I don't know if any of those players will be on the team next year, and then it comes into who is separated themselves. I just don't see Lonzo ball long term with the Lakers. I just don't see it. There's there's no need for even though. I think that he's a good all around player. I just can't have a non shooting point guard unless it's been Simmons who feels like Ben Simmons is more of a threat a better player than Lonzo ball. No, I I was curious about Christian yelich the batting champion with the brewers. They've had a few players who finished second in the batting race. George scott. See so Cooper, Robin. Yount Paul Molitor, Ryan Braun just to name a few that finished second in batting over so Christian yelich, Hank. Aaron did win batting titles. Okay. I was right with that fifty six and fifty nine with Milwaukee Braves. But he then came back when they were the Milwaukee Brewers, right? Paulie? What do you have for me this week little off saucy weakened in the NFL Cowboys falcons four and five anything stand out to you one of those teams going away. It's go away weekend. We're calling it. But I don't think so in that division. Both for the cop. No, we the falcons have to win where it's absolutely over. And it might already be over Dallas can still win that division by being mediocre titans. Five and four at your colts who are four and five cultivated sneaky good. You got the you got the Monday night game between Kansas City and the Rams Vikings bears Sunday night eagle saints on Sunday. Who that's that's in New Orleans. You keep waiting for the eagles to act like the eagles of last year that that feels like they're eventually going to do that at some point yapping. And then another one that probably a lot of people gonna watch Texans at Redskins both six and three seem like you're in different directions. Same record. Yeah. Mclovin. I hope it's Lamar Jackson weekend because going against Atty. I mean he could run for two hundred yards. I'm not exaggerating their show done on defense that you think they'll you know, if they have the mar- Jackson RG three sitting there, which would you go with I think they'll go with RG three unless flacco comes back to also I think there's late word that he might still be able to play coming up this weekend. Howard in Virginia joins us. Hi howard. What do you have for me today? Hey, Dan, how six foot Tuta quarter? Days real quick day. I won't be the first. And. Guys on your twenty nineteen more Marconi because I don't make Dan once again, you take your show to the next. Thank you, Danny. Thank you. Thank you Howard. Now, he said twenty nineteen more Coney award. Does he know the results next year because? Call call on his shot land. Oh, yeah. Well, all right. Well, thank you. We won the Marconi this year. That's nice to know that Howard things I've wanted next year back to back Jack, eat it other radio host. But let me see, Pat, Arkansas. Hey, Pat, what do you have for me? Hey, dan. According to my ex wife, I'm five nine. Sixteen and one hundred and fifty pounds. I loved why it rustles interview. He's hilarious. I've never seen him before. But I think he missed and glossed over the biggest thing he said was the killer. Instinct Brady's got it. I'm not going to lose and Rogers doesn't and you can go across sports. Lebron doesn't have it. He doesn't have the I am not going to lose this game. Where Jordan did when you wanna talk about goats and even Koby ad. I'm not losing this game. Yeah. I think Roger's has it. He he displays it. He's he's a quirky guy with his personalities, very bright. And he doesn't display it at like Brady does or you know, some of these other greats LeBron is sort of passive aggressive. I heard a story last night. And it's a former NBA player who was telling me said that. There was a sm- everyone Koby airball to couple of free throws might have been his rookie year and that next year in the off season. He was he was maniacal. He was playing every day at UCLA. He was just obsessed with he he got embarrassed. He was never ever going to let it happen to him again. But he played so much basketball in the offseason at UCLA, and he just was tortured people like he just was it. It changed him that first year. He had a rough transition from high school to the pros. And I think that he had missed I think airball two free throws three pointers in the playoff. Did that too? Oh, yeah. Oh and free throw. Yeah. But that he was just a it. Just changed him. Some. That's when it clicked where he was going to be determined to be the next Michael Jordan. He was going to be a great player. Can I sneak in brandy and Los Angeles, brandy and California. Hey, brandy. I believe or is it brand. Okay. Hi brandt. Yes. Hey, Brent you're on. Already. Hey, we're not. Thank you. The radio up. Thank you, Brian. I mean, all e me I called him a brandy instead of Brant at may have thrown him off his game. I thought you said brandy brandy brandy. Highlight of the week. Mclovin was what there were so many. I'm going to say we'll fail coming in. I always think that's so cool because he says you don't see it. He's like how you doing? How's everything going, and he really means it? Us your hauling, I gotta kick. It a Jeff garland and his energy enthusiasm and his constructive. Criticism of what I need to do better.

That's Tommy John Dot com slash Adam for twenty percent off site-wide plus free shipping. Tommy John Dot com slash Adam with news Gino grabbing break. All those crazy truck you crack felt the news with Gene Grad. So start off with things that we just follow ups and things that aren't going to take you by major shock but new jobs data released today as we record. This shows the devastating effect of the corona virus having on the labour market number of new unemployment filing skyrocketed last week to more than three point two million. That's a record twice what experts had projected. It is an increase of three million over the previous week. The pandemic has forced thousands of businesses to close But there we are one step closer right now to that economic relief The Senate approved two trillion dollar bill by a vote which you never hear this ninety. Six to Nothin' yeah Now heads to the house. If that passes trump will sign it and We broke down basically how this was going to affect people who was going to effect and and of course Adam it will affect you not at all nothing ever but the pandemic doesn't affect me either. Yeah like this start having conversations about getting back to work if we could or at least incrementally some people that you're not you know my name were hood is vastly different than New York City. It just is. It's just it's completely different. Top graphically it's different or the same he was. We're not the same. There's look there's a very good argument for a starbucks. Not Opening in the middle of Manhattan. But there's not as strong argument for the aforementioned sports clip haircuts place in locking. Yada being open like it's different argument. My feeling is. Let's start slowly rolling out some of these other places. 'cause we all shouldn't be based and we shouldn't do any part of this on a worst case scenario like it's like well what's happening in Italy or what's happening in Manhattan. It's like that's bad. But that's not the same as what's happening in parts of Texas. It should all be incremental but and look there's decisions to be made. I'm saying you can go. Here's the deal you shut everything down you shut it down in perpetuity and you don't if there's even a one percent chance of anybody being infected don't come back and you can go okay. But that's an argument that you're being you're making an vacuum there's businesses that are going under people that are going under. There's folks that need work. There's a part where you don't get to come back or it takes years to come back from where this is. We need to start having realistic conversations. Keep Manhattan closed down opened up the horse trail by Adams House. Maybe Dr Phil. She will say that. Today we're thrilled by Adams House. I I I got to say. It's probably less than fifty percent but I'm gonNA keep my fingers crossed anyway Something kind of interesting that I just act because we talked about it on the Conway show last night you know. This is a giant unheard of number. The stimulus package. And you know money's going everywhere to hospitals to individuals everything yes getting twenty five million dollars for a health. Stimulus package may place meeting Saturday. How did they get that? They work their way in there. Well there was a lot of stuff that had there was a lot of. I guess what they call pork know. The headline money carved out for other shit. That didn't have anything to do with the recovery and Like I said they the lot of stuff about the diversity and Oh and and employment and having just a lot of crazy nonsense. It really didn't have anything to do with it. And I think I think the Kennedy Center was thirty. Five million is so it got so. So here's what happened. I think Pelosi came back and she had a lot of stuff on there that the Republicans didn't want to sign off on. But of course you can't go on record is not signing off on the on the stimulus package so. I think they got rid of a lot of sort of green new deal shit and in border stuff and they just went fuck the Kennedy. Give Him the twenty five Million Bucks. We gotta get to sing sign so that. I think it's a vestige of that one that had other cork on it that makes sense and I don't know if you've heard this one as well I did not Feel insulting Tim Conway junior racing. I have to fact check him. I haven't done that but we also talked about on the show. How IF AIRLINES IS IT? True that of airlines take the money that means they also have to hire a diversity officer. They had that for like any any business over hundred people or something. I'd hire diversity officers diversity quota the Baba I. It's slippery slope stuff because for me. Who's a libertarian? This notion of like the government shutdown the economy. Then the government is going to make up for this by giving you a stimulus package and you go okay. So the for lack of a better term amount one hundred grand. And now you're GonNa Gimme a hundred grand and the government goes. Yeah that's what we're GONNA do and they go. But here's what's attached to the one hundred grand. You're going to have to start doing this moving forward and it's Kinda like well I get what you want. You do want diversity program you do want to have to report to the government unlike who you've hired. What color they are. What their sexual proclivities are. I get what you want and now seems like a good opportunity to get it but it doesn't have that much to do with what just happened. What just happened is we stopped working and now we want to start working. This notion of the Divi- diversity program or the green new deal or lowering your carbon footprint. That's for elections. That's for later on we. We all will decide on that right now. You're you can't hold me hostage to getting my money for my business unless I comply to this or that so I think there was some of that going on but I guess they've eased up on it and they got they got from thirty five million to twenty five million five entity center. That's right the. Us military has ordered a sixty day freeze on all overseas troop movements keeping all military personnel and their families in place for two months. I think they did have their first case of somebody at the Pentagon coming down with corona virus in the military. So I think this is. This is all related. And I think that's goes both ways. You stay where you are or you know you stay overseas or you stay here I've got a Pentagon taught we've never had before plays a building is in the shape of Pentagon right correct. They come up with the name. Pentagon and then build it to that shape or did they build a building to that shape and there were going to call it like J. Edgar Hoover Memorial whatever and there's only one. Let's go with the shape. That's a great question. I always wonder if they had like an official name at launch. Like you know the Government Defense Center or whatever it's called and just became the Pentagon interesting. Tom Maybe there is an official name about it. We don't even know about and it's a nickname and we all know the nickname and there really is like the DJ Edgar Hoover Defense building or something. Although I think it's really funny to imagine someone who was like just don't get this shape wrong man because I've been really wanting to see the name of the Pentagon in our also. What other buildings they name after this shape you know then go. I work in the long tall thingy it's called the sears tower. Yeah we call it the high we call it. The Taller is why building. I Got One New York flatiron building. Oh Yeah I can think of but this district but it's in the shape of a flat iron. It's A. It's a triangular building that separates two streets. Is it in the meatpacking district or is in downtown downtown Gina. This is a tough sell because you have to ball guys and one guy with naturally curly hair so we don't use that flat iron two point. She has a Pentagon shape. What somebody looking at out of breaking we did Breaking news it turns out the baseball player. You're probably thinking up from Taft High School Hall of Famer Robin Yount Robin. Yount not a pitcher. But probably the most famous players insurer. I'm still thinking of I'll maybe well. Gabe Kaplan also but again not a pitcher. And I can't find Larry Saberhagen. Where did Bret Saberhagen go gun now? All right well. We'll try to figure it out Sorry all right so sabre is Bret Saberhagen called Sabre okay rose. You know what I'm a jerk. I think I'm thinking of George Brett. I'm just going to Kansas City. Royals Rolling Accent Actually Valley Guy. Bret SABERHAGEN WANTS TO GROVER CLEVELAND. High School in Cleveland. High is down the street from taff tie. Maybe that's why I got confused. Sorry go ahead now. You know we've had these little indicators that things are kind of weird out there and and you know we're getting it but now it may be truly time to panic for some people. Mcdonald's is forced to change their operations. So they say an effort to simplify things in our kitchen and for our crew and ensure the best possible experience for our customer. They're doing away with the all-day breakfast menu till further. Notice where we had a little interruption there to what till further notice doing away with the all day breakfast menu. Oh attra- now it's a tragedy. I told you I saw prepared should serious. And there's solely focusing on their most popular Benue choices so who knows what other delights will be taken salads for a minute. Let's just have breakfast? Men Thank you. Yeah who fucking kidding with a cut up apple a bag you know what I mean. I'm right there. Well first off cut up. Apples can be got anywhere. What do we need McDonald's? Forgive you cut up apples for you know I. I love the honesty of in and out. Burger like in and out Burger. There's no fucking salads. There's no cut up apples. There's no dietary side of the menu for folks. That are counting calories. You'd go in there. You get a fucking double burger you give the guy read. Handshake puts another patty on there and a Straw can sit in your car and eat it. They don't make no pretense and that's exactly how we like it. Right dietary restrictions. They WANNA know if you want four patties instead of one I got this triple sorry I was just like I was there a week ago and I got the three by three really. It's fantastic and they have the secret menu. And here's the best thing is that they they have a limited menu. And that's my. I think why they're amazing. Click Click too. Many places offered to many different things. Like just specialize in something and knocked out of the park and stop fucking around with so many options. Not only that but if you ever get caught behind one of these fucking shit heads who goes in one into Carney's Carney's does great hotdogs. I get hot dogs from Carney's I love Carney's dog I pull up behind some guy he orders a Taco Salad. Yup The fucking chick behind the counter. Like let me find. She was like looking at her. Quarterback wristband flips. It Open Look. Is You signaling? She had to go to the back fucked first off the TACO salad doesn't need to be on the fucking menu. You make hot dogs. You make hamburgers and I'll tell you it just struck me. What in and out Burger has done in and out his figured out. The Burger business sort of like porn has figured out their customers. They're like you know. At some point someone went. What about the part where the guy dressed up as a sailor and then she's walking her dog and they meet in the park? Just have them fucking have fucking just cut right to them fucking. It's like. Yeah but should they meet how did he? How are they fucking origin? Nobody cares nobody cares ONC- simplicity and some Dick. That's it that's what in-and-out does that literally. I WanNa fuck in birth. I'm here it's an in and out. It is just like you're the pussies are the Dick's instead of John. Three sixteen at the bottom of the cup. It'll just say pussies index index. That's all that's all it is. How many Dicks? That's up to you now. Snatch the world is your oyster. But that's all we got. We don't have any fucking cut up apples. Yeah I really appreciate it to really appreciate it. Yeah I do too especially especially in these trying times. It's that familiar. You want to three by with like a lettuce wrap Brian. Yeah that's right smart. What do you do on the I? Three PATTIES patties three cheese. The triple the triple double or what's called a three by three animal style with a lettuce wrap. It was everything I needed. It was fantastic. One of those right now so I can't figure out if I have a boner because I've been talking about porn or what else we got beacon and out. Here's a couple of services that are really helping. People out hurts announced Wednesday. They will provide free car. Rentals for healthcare workers in New York City to help them get to work for Seasons Hotel on fifty seventh street. New York will provide free lodging for doctors. Nurses Medical personnel working around the clock for them. Starbucks given all first responders and healthcare workers free coffee. Police officer firefighter paramedic. Doctor List goes on you. Get a freak out Through the next next month of learned. I don't think coffee as any value because the very first thing we give out for free coffee like come on down volunteer to why we got coffee over here was setting it up. Coffee those bring on bringing coffee. It's like maybe this now. Starbucks is so fucking rich. They're charging five bucks or something. That evidently is free every single meeting every every Aa Meeting every uttering every Every neighborhood watch meeting every School meeting there's this coffee the coffee urn. Maybe it's free hotel lobby. No matter what here it could be like a days inn or four seasons. You WanNa come for coffee. It's free you know tires rotated you know you. Know Coffee's free or cheap or free because Adam the one thing the one thing they gave us set Love Line Westwood one coffee. That's right now nothing else. There's nothing else. Chris has an answer on the Pentagon discussion. Chris can here you go sorry? I said okay. So when they're playing the Pentagon they were gonNA originally combining when they're planning it they're gonNA contracted about a mile north from where it was and the way that land was shaped was the shape of a Pentagon and the only thing they said was. It can't be talk because we have restricted steel usage because of the war going on right now and house like forty thousand people so they said okay. We'll just build as wide as we can and it will be shaped as a Pentagon but then people complain that it was going to ruin the skyline and that is blocking the cemetery so like all right. Let's go move it down south but let's just keep the plans that we have now because we already wrote it all down and it's already it's already designed so they just kept the Pentagon shape so it was built in World War Two because they're trying to save steel. That's right. I'm guessing interesting. And it was always called the Pentagon political name Department of Defense Headquarters or something in land with five sides. Let's let's do one more geographical right so anecdotally and on social media. I have heard some people begging differ with this statistic but this article says all the stay at home time is bringing couples and families closer together. A new survey found that some fifty percent of respondents say staying at home is bringing them closer to their partner. Sixty seven percents of their seeing their partner families much more before all this fifty seven percent said they struggle to find time with their partner. Now seventy four percent say they're spending more quality time with their loved ones forty percent. Believe all this time will benefit their relationship in the long run this survey also found that two-thirds of respondents believe there will be and we talked about this a big baby boom and nine months Tom. How's it how's it working for you? I mean I actually have enjoyed. I've enjoyed being here but I'm also like pretty much a homebody you know so It doesn't feel like that big of a departure. We haven't really been banging much but I also wasn't you know I wasn't feeling great. She wasn't feeling great. I don't think we had covert but there's also other things going around so I don't. I'll try to get it in there tonight but I think there's GonNa be a lot of babies in nine months. I do believe that. Yeah you don't have to film just like text me a thumbs up when you're in okay. I'm counting on this. I realize I'm the worst person in the world because I've I've been watching everyone lounge around my house which is fine but I realize they're doing it on my dime so I said to I have a full time nanny which I don't really need but she's turned into Mine Anne so the door last night I was. I was going out to do something like five and I said what are we eating tonight and she said leftovers and I said you know what I'm in the mood for a steak. You make me a steak and they can eat leftovers and she said okay and then I went to work and then I came back and there were four huge stakes just sitting on top. Getting all seasoned up wasn't the plan. Yeah that's thirty one bucks a pop. That's thirty bucks a unit and I said what what happened to the state for the Hefei for the boss. Man Get ever WanNa steak and I'm like no you're shitting on my point. And then she's like. I said what happened to leftovers for the little people you know for them for the non earners and she's like leftovers tomorrow and I'm like rowing entire point here. I want steak date the left. Oh I want them to watch needs That's right that's the point. I'm going to sit on a throne. I'M GONNA eat steak at some point when my son is crying and saying Papa may have a piece up pretend to give it to them and then throw it to the dog real fast real good. That's all right Kino.

Second Adam Corolla coming right up for the PODCAST warned sports network prisons sports. I'd love football fans. Welcome to the Friday episode. A good sports Dave Damasec here. Adam Corolla over there. Hope you're doing well and as you know let's do a little housekeeping as they say because there's not any games to be talking about so we may as well talk about games that were hoping to see come. September and beyond here some of these. These rules changes are profound specifically in the NFL. Now if in case yarn aware we're not going to a seventeen game schedule. What do you think it's weird that everyone? I guess the players always pissed off and they have to play more games. Not Everybody because I talked to keep Tha Leib about A week or two ago and he said he's like I can't imagine that I grew up. you know a disproportionate number of them didn't grow up in the lap of luxury. I'll ever dreamed of was making money to play ball and now you're saying Oh. I'm going to get paid to do it for an extra day. Like of course I wanted to do that and you also said I'm sorry but another interesting I listened to that episode of the DSP. Check that out wherever you get your podcast but keep also said something interesting. That I hadn't thought about what he has. A secondary endorsement deals with somebody like under armour and he gets bonus if he hits a certain number of stats so this gives him an extra game to try to hit those stats. Which was interesting. I hadn't thought about that. Yeah it's a great point but the thing to me is that's bad not bad you know. I'm sure players don't care as much as fans do except for those incentives that they have but isn't it going to be a little weird like the guy I mean? I don't know what he's done since he retired in. That forty niners uniform back in one thousand nine hundred eighty but Remember the local running back for USC OJ Simpson. He won the heisman trophy then he went and played for the bills and had some nice years. There I feel like history a for one reason or another has kind of overwhelmed the fact that he is the only actual fourteen game two thousand yard rusher who's done it since including Eric Dickerson. Who had a remarkable year and Barry Sanders when he did it and td? Terrell Davis the only guy to actually get two thousand yards in fourteen games is the juice and similar stats like that are going to become moot. Because you're going to have an extra game to achieve those numbers do you know that Sid Lachmann and if he played a seventeen game season and go with throw an extra thirteen point two picks in that season I will see. That's something that would have been I. I you know what I should know that I'm embarrassed. I doubt the all time single season high for interception. I'M GONNA guess it was forty because the thing is that when people I guarantee you. Gary behind the glass if he saw. Terry Bradshaw has numbers as much. As I laugh at Bob. Gracie's say like Terry Bradshaw. I didn't complete fifty percent of his passes one year. Yeah they were also pushing it down field. They were also to make risky Throws and everything is it. Forty forty two forty two guests who it is as SID unluck meant. It can't be him now. That's a cousin. Unlucky Guy. It's still well as I point out my still. My favorite of all is is still Larry Play Fair who led the League in penalties. One year. I love it that hockey and hockey. It says on my screen that The seventeen game season is now going to push the super bowl so falls a day before. President's Day that it's going to be a national holiday boy that's going to be a twist or at the warehouse or whatever else just to button up where you guys are talking about. George Blanda I'd but I wouldn't have gotten it right. Know that one the also I guess Markowski. I think I know these guys. Don't play a lot in the preseason. They added a regular game and they backed off one of the pre seasons. Which seems like you know. It's still all in there. Still Twenty Games that we're talking about. I get it preseason. Some starters are suiting up or they'll play a little bit more now in the preseason. Maybe they don't like that but I don't know it's one game it's for the good. I don't know how to do the math. The Math Whiz. You've proven yourself to be this week. I'm good sports ace but it's weird because the other element is that now only the best team in the conference gets the by so now there's only one team that will be watching from home and like we talked about before this year's playoffs in the last decade it's been critically important to get a by. It's like I think it's like one thousand nine hundred twenty three or something like that or twenty the last twenty four something like that of the teams that got to the Super Bowl had a by local for that. You know you you and I recall when the Oakland Raiders. Eighty were a wildcard. They got to the Super Bowl. And then the steelers did it as a six seed and the packers of that but anyway I wonder how that's GonNa d- like that better that there is that care it for just one team and I wonder if it will allow teams to rest their starters in week. Seventeen and even week sixteen. If you know you have to play immediately. There's only one team per conference. It's going to have its feet up in that first week of the playoffs. I Yeah I I agree with what you just said. I'm also thinking about Barkovsky now. Oh they WANNA talk. He had the facemask. He had a natural to now a lot of guys. Forget just how bad a perm yep done a guy but I think he got a perm well bar cows out tell you what a Gary if you could pull up some Bartelski or Kaelin. Back there to remind ace. Those are the best. They're getting new uniforms. The Falcons are the best thing they could do. Is Sculptor. Nineteen eighty. Just get the Markowski get up. It was sweet but yes he is as we. Now see Tom. Brady getting ready to put on. The buccaneers helmet in one of the all-time weirdest things that will see. But I remember Franko Harrison the green and the Seattle seahawks uniform forgot about remains jarring to see him in. I must say I think I block that from my memory. Tony Dorsett that. But that I can't believe Gary just pulled up the perfect picture there look at bar. Caskey's facemask back to fall flat iron. Facemask it doesn't connect at the top. That's the that's The majesty of it and he's got the long blond locks pushing out out the back and I suspect he did a lot for the self esteem of one young Adam Corolla who also was walking around with a fro- though. Yeah well he frode his see. I think I think he may have gotten a perm. Oh you think it was not. He has a golden locks but he may have gotten a perm. I'm going to let them know I'm GonNa Disagree with this We'll have to hit them up on twitter Gary if he if he response to US well nobody admits to getting a perm. That's not a term. That's real hair man. I'm not saying the add extensions like a black woman and worked at a nail salon. Sing may have intentionally curl this air. I've often said that Carson Palmer and I've discussed it with the man and he takes it as a compliment I think Carson Palmer to me. It looks the most in twenty first century terms. He looks the most like a quarterback should look of anybody in in in football. I might replace him all time though. Steve Art Cow Ski. Look at that Phallic Golden. Nothing Care Long. So what what are you? GonNa do any woman I want including yours in back when the football pants had that belt through it. Kinda accentuated the package when you pull it in since it up real time and actual belt a bell. Baseball guys still wear a belt. I stopped off at the gap and pick one up in case they didn't pack it or something. We need a big bar. Caskey head shot but yeah he's beautiful. I mentioned this on. Acs You know everyone talks about model you over there. Which is New England? You know with the Beautiful Brady and Garoppolo before before he before he left but don't sleep on Drew Bledsoe good-looking. No that's a good looking down me anything I don't know. Hey Matt gasoline half bad. You know they've had some decent looking fellow run through there all right. Listen caskey with a with a curly hair. I guess is what I'm looking. You guys don't know what a permanent is. Let's look a live. That's not really the one I'm looking for. Find Bar Caskey with this right bar. Caskey curly hair. By the way. Bartelski is another one of those guys. You may not remember this although Urine Angelino so perhaps I'm wrong. Bartelski finished his. Nfl career as an La Ram. I didn't remember that. There's some of those ones that Ronnie Lott was on the jets. Oh yeah right right subject. Read Ed Reed was on the Houston. Texans yeah I mean. I have literally no recollection of that. That wasn't more than five years ago. I have no recollection of Ed Reed buyer. I don't think it's about recollection. I think we're intentionally blocking it. Maybe at Tony Dorsett was on the Denver broncos. Do you remember that vaguely? Yeah but blocked. Oj On the on the forty nine hundred sparkasse with big hair. But maybe not a perm. I don't know a lot of locks look at that. Yeah but Cal Burn tree up in those trees while the Games are going on the student body to sit up on a hill amongst the amongst the Pines and watch down into the stadium is a common activity. I love it all right. Well listen we will be back. Presumably next week with more hot sports. Talk for you until then. Four Adam Corolla Damage Jenkins for tasks follow.

It's cheesy brings back all the warm field goods of yesteryear. Joining us now, my friend Jim Crimes Author of the Church Baseball to making the movie bull. Durham talked together on a podcast about that epic movie, one of my favorites and he's got a new project in which he seeking out people's memories of County Stadium in Milwaukee for a yet to be titled Booked Jim You. Don't have the title for this thing yet. Just didn't acid flashback where that song it was like the seventies wasn't the eighties. On that Song Getter. Says Copyright One thousand nine hundred eighty. Eighty. Give me a minute. Yeah, it's the history of county stadium. Basically it's going to be a variation of of of that, but essentially it's going to be more of a I hate to say academic volume, but it will be distributed primarily the libraries and academia and but the fans who are contributing members are GONNA. Grab a copy, too, but it's going to be a real comprehensive book. From the two six two already to start us off to prime the pump. Was Either Nineteen, seventy nine or nineteen eighties, as I was about ten years old. My Dad took me to opening day. It was like thirty five degrees and sixto less Gano hit a walk off. Grand Slam against the Red Sox the only day. My Dad ever skipped work and the only day he ever let me skip school. Remember it fondly rob into Tosa. That sounds about like town. My memories of ten people have sent memories about that. Lescot home run that the something Easter Sunday game. Well Easter, Sunday, game I saw somebody on twitter. Put out you know. Some of the Highlights TV highlights from that game. And me, not being a native Milwaukee getting up to speed on these things I'm like wow, what a crazy game! That was to see the stands and the fans I mean it's fantastic and also made. My heart hurt a bit Jim that we don't have that right now, but I have to tell you that two people wendy see like pre. said she's been there for everything you. You know since she was a kid and that game was more important to her than the world series, not more important, but more more heartfelt and John Adam a trainer for twenty two years at the same thing. He said he was there for all the world series, but that game apparently had a has a heck of a lot of memories for a lot of people. Yeah all right so talk to me more about some of the memories you've gotten as I get more texts coming in here. Jim Crohn's joining us now. He's writing book about the history of County Stadium. That's right and I think the you know. Let me get this other way right away. If people have a memory just please go to our website. Our Milwaukee County Stadium Dot. com is a form on there that they can fill out a member, but thing about this volume is. There's five looks already Ford's Forbes Field at its Yankee Stadium Comiskey and Tiger and will be the sixth. And so obviously the only do it on. ballparks have been demolished, and has some sort of a standing in the community or some kind of history and sell this book I have four authors contributing four chapters I'm editing this primarily I do have some additional writing that I'm doing primarily. I'm having four authors from inception groundbreaking all the way through the closing ceremonies and dimensions of the Ballpark You know all sorts of history with loop Iranian the braves coming over in the Seattle pilots, becoming the brewers and the. The week, and then one of the unique things is We have memories from players and brewers organization that we have memories from media, and then we have memories from fans, and you know if anybody from the media's listing as well I welcome your memories, and the players are a bare it's it's tough to get a memory out of those little coots. They just they WANNA, call. They don't want to do anything, but is it because players? It's like asking your I remember a day at the office at our cubicle. They work. They don't WanNa they don't WanNa. Do anything they just. I talked to Greg Von. They're really nice, but it. Johnny out on the former trainer, said you know these guys. You know they don't WanNa. Be bothered I'm sorry. I'm probably cutting my foot off here with this, but they really don't WanNa. Be Bothered. What I'm talking about the fair to be to be fair though it can you understand they get? They get come at from all angles. Yeah, especially, because it's yours, Jim. This is about a place. They spend half their lives now. I I completely understand I tell I. Tell people all the time I. Don't know if I'd want to be bothered with it's you know that's where sent out mailings to them. We'll see what happens. Hank. Aaron I talked to him. He was so gracious. I've been around this game for a while, but I was more humbled by talking to Hank Aaron, and then than probably anyone you know getting a few minutes on the phone with him, but but ceilings writing the foreword at a great memory from I can't say. He's on another station and town so I won't but A lot of other media members have been wonderful, but the fans have been responding from going back to the braves days. shares people There's a former mayor. John Norquist of Milwaukee. A lot of listeners will not remember him. He used to ride hop a freight train about ten miles out of Milwaukee anted right out to county stadium and hop off and I'm like Oh my goodness. I've never heard anything like that in my life, but hop a freight train to go through the ballpark. You can make a movie out of that one right exactly FIDORA's everywhere men in suits. Craziness, I. So why? Why do you think it is that ballpark? Memories are so seared into our our brains as sports fans. It's because you know there's a lot of things we forget in life, but that ballpark memory and the day and what you're a member in the weather and the F- The popcorn. You eight and what you felt. It's all very visceral. Why is that? It is and I think that they call that a flash bulb memory the first time you walk out. A mine was regularly when I walked up the steps and saw the green. It was heavenly. You remember it. Anybody listening remembers. Site A ballpark. It's this pristine beautiful, and I hate to use the term cathedral, but I just did but It's just such a magical thing and I think that what what I'm really discovering here is that it's igniting nostalgia. It's igniting memories of your youth. You know time is clicking. It's gone by fast and I think what this does is it just sparks some memory with your dad? You know he's done now or some memory with your buddies gone now and you can't i. don't care what it is, but this the townie stadium I always say it's A. It was a tin shack in a real dumb, but it was my dump. It was place and. People can come there, and you remember you know the two fisted slop, or you remember Bonnie. Brewer who gave me a memory. brewers and it's like anything else. You do want to recall that you do WanNa touch base on something that matters you and that's why I think this book is resonating. That's why you know. People are so grateful. They have a facebook page and they say. Thank you for starting this and last night. Just baseball. That's that's deeper. Let's see six Oh eight says I remember getting a beer shower after robin yount three thousand hit. Yeah story there I feel Garner told me a story about how they had a plan to meet Robin at the at the base at first base or wherever he went ahead and I think it was Tim fully was coach and You wouldn't give him the ball and It was just he wanted to give it to robin himself, and he wouldn't give it up in. Garner says you know you're a real leap. Let somebody stories anything you can remember about stadium I'm getting memories on but I. I hate to say that because I need more and I want more and. Give me. A couple of paragraphs goes long as you want, and you don't have to be Ernest Hemingway. We'll work it out once again. The website is. Our Milwaukee County Stadium Dot Com. There's a forum on there. fill it out and It's it's it's fun. Don't be dumpy shy I mean if you think you have one memory, put five of them, we we take them all and you. It doesn't have to be anything monumental. Just just memories of your life opening day versus the Rangers says Tony in Oak Creek Baseball giveaway day. One bad call was all talk for the skied open up and start raining giveaway. Baseball's I think that was when they decided. We'll give them to you on the way out the door at the end of the game. That's the one just quick when. Someone sent me a couple of days ago, said somebody was sitting in the stands of the case of brought fell from the upper. That, unless it's in a box kills you and the next was a boxer stadium size. Right on the head I think so. It was I'm kidding about that, but There's lots of good memories do from the four one four. My aunt would go to braves. Games weight afterwards to get autographs. Two guys asked if she needed a ride home. My grandma was paid off as she got a ride from two guys. They happen to be Joe Torry and Eddie Mass. She's kind of autograph programmed. Approve it. Probably more than that to prove it to. That's so funny. They're like. Yeah. We'll give autograph, but we need a ride home. Runs a Horn to horn dog. Yeah, he was. Right. Think okay well. Maybe if his aunt was, was a Gamer. Case. Yeah Brian in Milwaukee says. Young Baseball Fan I love Ken Griffey junior therefore followed the mariners for whatever reason in ninety seven, the M.'s rookie rightfielder was also on my radar, so I had a sign that said something along the likes of Griffey and the Amazon cruise control in the fifth inning crews came out of the game, and because he got traded to the Blue Jays well so much for that sign. So there you go on that memory, you know. They, hang around the caged back in those days, county stadium media could lean on the cage and just talked to the players. Just like a different era, but Ken Griffey and to chat and I remember Tony. Larussa came back when he was with the cardinals, and I said to him I never thought I. Bet you never thought you'd come back to this place. He didn't like it or not. A lot of guys did not like county stadium, playing their steal the visitors 'cause. If you remember the old clubhouse, it was like a high school locker room and they. No, they didn't. They didn't either disdain for this place. It was a real karate place to come play. I mean what was it built for like a built in what year and what are they? Yeah nineteen fifty three in the the. BREWERS are all set to move in. And then they pulled the trigger on the braves, and the braves came in, and just basically swept in and took it over, and there's one interesting fact that somber, but I was really startled in my research was three men obviously perished in Miller Park construction, but three men actually perished during the construction of County Stadium as well which I found an eerie. And unfortunate and tragic similarity, but that's part of the thing that I've been covering so many facts that are fascinating as well as the stylistic, but a lot of these things are just just amazing things. What was the best? What was the best part of County Stadium just to calm? You know for me, It's touching base again. I'm being outdoors. I'M NOT GONNA. Knock Mother Park. It just doesn't hold the same romance. You know you hate to use the term romantic about baseball, but. there's something about the yard. It was just about baseball in those days and I feel some sort of sadness kids today. They don't remember what it's like to be out at a part. They have all this music now and all these things going on around him at a ball. The back in those days you sat with somebody who shared a beer just hung out and there was a lot of talking Steve, you know. There was a lot of people just hanging out with family and a lot of those memories and I think again. That's why people get is because we were out this park and as Corny as it sounds those are. Those are memories that that don't go away. You know because you were with somebody. Special your with your buddies and back in the day. What we perceive as a simpler time, it may not have been, but it sure seems like now. It was I think it was our county stadium. Dot Com Walkie County. Are Milwaukee County.

Starting 9 Episode #114 - All-Time Player Draft

"Welcome back to starting nine all draft episode one fourteen this is this is tense. It's I don't know how to describe the vibe in the room right now but it is guns drawn. It is baseball Guy Versus Baseball Guy Versus Baseball Guy we got Dallas. We got Jay. This is the podcast that the grounds crew has been waiting for <hes>. We're going to be doing a draft of the all-time baseball legends. Anyone is on the table that includes active so more trope. Probably we're GONNA go somewhere on this draft Jacka chance but I would say he's probably the only active player that's GonNa go. I mean I think the only guy that might have a chance to go as like Kershaw maybe ver- lander. I could see Dallas taking Matt Chapman but that's that's about it. That's about J._D.. Martinez his name on the D. H.. Was that an oversight J.. Herald Baynes didn't make it either. That's something we're GonNa need to address. We can't go any further right now. Then when our great producer or fearless leader starts compiling a list of the all-time greatest men to play baseball for for us to select and you just don't even include one George Herman Ruth the intern responsible for that was absolutely fired. That's all I needed to here yeah. It's listen we had very thorough process a position by position we than US reference that with all time lists okay what we just skipped right over the first name started right at number two and then kept it moving yeah it started it to its Herman was taken for granted and but he's on the list now he's eligible both left and right field. I'll use boring this draft at home. What about what about pitchers I mean because or is that does that make him an anomaly homily because he is the only mayhem on this list that can do both is that correct I mean I guess some some people can technically do? Both we see a lot of position players pitching these days well. I guess if we were at the bar like I don't know e._R._A.. Title Yeah I mean Babe Ruth didn't really contribute enough as a pitcher to warrant inclusion on an all time pitchers list but he makes it with he makes it with the bat fair enough and we haven't even decided to draft order yet. No we have not and it's going to be a real simple. Process odds are evens. One of you guys picks. Whatever I'm holding behind my back who wants to pay so number and jeered says the number one or the other it's one of you picks and then it's whether if you pick it right you get it and even it's what even aw Dallas Jared J.? That's the order I mean I still just. I don't know how that I mean Dallas Dallas. The only person has control over the draft order. That's that's wild no you you guys is. Are you guys have you guys had the instagram draft that didn't ever happen last earlier this week. So for the purposes of keeping this podcast moving we have to just make decisions and technically you had control of the draft. You just chose not tape now you were set up to you had a chance to Riggott yeah fair. That's fair point <hes> that is very true rusty lawn your laurels. I will take at number one. Are we starting now. Oh not starting okay good to know I've just practicing just nervous for a sexy started sweating right there. The did <hes> well now that we know settle in which just play a little pepper care abyss play a little pepper fine. I'm getting them. Both Gary Sanchez is going to injured lists with the groin injury injury <hes> would seem like good timing because he was basically the worst offensive player in Major League baseball amongst qualified players <hes> since that first game of the London series probably probably a good time to take a seat. I don't know if there was an an injury that happened at the end of June that sort of led to this groin injury putting him on the disabled list or the injured list <hes> it was kind of a situation where he should take a seat regardless. It's it's been it's been a rough go for all gary or that's the that's a tough part about playing injured is within the clubhouse. You can earn that respect because you're quote unquote manning the post and I think to the Yankees like what sort of impact is Gary Sanchez not producing had I mean they seem to have been winning ball games. I guess without Garrick ten for his last eighty five something like that is so oh Jin eighty-five not great so you and I think I mean realistically with Austin Rolling back there. I think we understand where that were. The upgrade is defensively right. Yeah Awesome. I it's not like again. Gary Sanchez was the starting Catcher for the All Star game <hes> so it is a loss but when you're talking about the Yankees offense yes. They're just GONNA keep on ticking and roll mine does a fine job behind the dish arguably or not even really arguably. He's a better defensive catcher than Gary Sanchez so the Yankees the Yankees have the luxury of they can lose a guy like Gary Sanchez an impact player and not really feel that whatsoever to to put some specifics on what jared alluded to at the very top of that since June twenty the third which is not the exact same stretch. You're talking about but over his last twenty one game during which he's hitting one eighteen with a three seventy oh P._S.. Yes a negative to waited runs created plus that is by far the worst in baseball over that stretch the next player. What is it twenty so you can have a negative way runs created Gary's doing it carries having Gary doing it on his base molting congratulations to Gary <hes> he'll be back in time Joey Gallo to the injured list? It's it sucks because he's been so fun to watch this year. He's had his battles with injuries. Injuries kept him from participating in the Homerun Derby <hes> you could make the case that outside outside of vladi junior that injuries kinda fucked us out of seeing the two most exciting would have been participants in the Homerun Derby where you're talking about Christian Yelich Joey Gallo <hes> so Chris Davis Conversation but yeah you're right I wouldn't I would I didn't i. I wouldn't include him that conversation. All I think <hes> you know excitement level. I don't really think he's he's their national. It's heartbreaking heart brick jerry because you know who's who's in town this week. WHO's in town this week? Dallas Texas Rangers Rangers too so it's it's. It's tough tickets. You know we're GONNA. We're GONNA Miss Julie Yellow. It's unfortunate we're not going to be able to test are might against the the study out builder who who very clearly in my opinion in the opinion of a lot of folks would have put on what I believe would have been probably the most majestic display at the homerun derby. He's a guy who folks if you're going to go to Oh ballgame whether it be in Texas or somewhere on the road where the Rangers are coming into town. Get their early watch B._P.. Yeah it's it that right. There is worth your admission when they talk about players and the price of admission watching guys do their pre-game regain routine shit like that. He's one of those guys is rounds of B._p.. Just I promise you. They're worth your popcorn. Sums going on them because he's lost one hundred twenty three points of O. P. S. just in July. I know I know I've gone from one point one zero nine two nine eighty six and that is because he's gone seven for fifty two with thirty one strikeouts see so why is that anything that we don't want to say would come to expect or is that anything that we would scoff at normally no not necessarily but it did look like he had become like this is kind of old so this is the but that's the thing is it regret regression that was coming right is its reward has not been healthy. It's regression to the mean. This is who Joey Gallo joy yellow was playing outside of his mind early on right yeah. He's not fair to say yes sir so this is a an and I got a hate that word I hate to our word but regression meeting. This is coming back down to earth so it's not like he's gotten worse or is getting worse. He was out of his mind and is now just kind of coming back to who I think we've expect Joey Gallo to be in some sense yeah. I think that's fair. It's just awesome what he's awesome. That's all it's really cool and I mean if I being serious series. It does something that he's not here because I love to watch players. Play baseball JOE YELLOWS A guy. Who does something really great hits balls really fucking hard really far? There is 'cause I guess balls and like batting average on balls in play doesn't take into account homers which is ridiculous as really stupid because they're not. We've had that conversation yeah yeah. It's very stupid that it doesn't take that into effect <hes> but there was a point where Joey gallow was hitting five hundred on all batted balls like he hits the ball. He's getting on base pretty much just heads or tails. Call it five hundred that's fucking ridiculous. <hes> the brewers are losing Jewish shot seen this socks because obviously you had the brandon woodruff injury <hes> they're running out of bullets here my Milwaukee brewers around out of bullets which means there's all the more incentive incentive Dallas forcing the hand force their put your nuts on the table. Call Toronto Blue Jays say hey the Marcus Stroman we want him. What will it take one? Will it take but I hope that the Blue Jays I mean you have to do this if you are the Blue Jays but I hope the Blue Jays don't say hey. We know that you're desperate. So we're GONNA. We're going to drain you for all that. You're worth mytalk. Why would you not? I'm not blaming them. I'm not blaming if they do choose to do that. I'm just saying that it sucks that they now can sort of play card. Be Because you know if you're Toronto you can say we know that you're desperate right now. There's teams where they want stroman and <hes> we kind of like the prospect package that they put together but strom more of a luxury to them than a necessity. We know he's a necessity to us. We can kind of just milk you forever you got and and that's the situation that the brewers have found himself in after the would've injury sorry who knows if you're going to see woodruff again at all during the regular season that there's a chance that if he does come back there might be what two weeks left on the on the regular season schedule so stroman to Milwaukee. I feel like to me is becoming more more and more maybe not likely because I don't think that that that doesn't just because you have the biggest need doesn't mean you have the best package <hes> I do think that they have sort of they've been very selective on moves moves. They've made or not made bit right now. Yeah you're snake bit and they're lying in the desert and as it sets right now the Toronto Blue Jays or walking by and they're looking down going. Hey only suck that poisoning personnel <hes> it needs water to gotten them pockets and that's right now. That's a fair move. That's a fair move because the Jay's are looking to the future they're going to need. They're going to need some money. They're gonNA need some MM trinkets to take with them into town on this journey as they passed the Milwaukee brewers in that barren wasteland and they're okay with leaving the Milwaukee brewers right out there to shrivel up and die on their own there okay with that and they should be okay with that because they're getting ready to say goodbye to Marcus Stroman a guy who has arguably had the biggest impact whether you can see it now or not since Joe Bats in Toronto and I know they were both there together and he got a lot of that from job Batista but Batista leaves who sort of takes over that flag carrying Persona Marcus Stroman. That's who you're getting so yeah check before such Marcus stroman start last night did dominated will razzle dazzle took the Jersey off. Even the broadcasters were acknowledging. This is probably as last start with the blue jays which his sweet moment because I feel like <hes> while Toronto is all he knows and I'm sure he loves it there and he's always very vocal about loving it and Toronto and <hes> and praising the fan base there the the fans haven't shown up since they've sort of dismembered the core of you know Batista Encarnacion Donaldson I mean it's it's sad because we saw how rowdy and how passionate they can be if the Blue Jays in it but now that they haven't been these fans have completely abandoned the team. I want Marcus Stroman to be in a market playing for a team. That's going to be contending for championship. I want him on a stage where baseball fans outside of Canada are GonNa look at him and be like this Guy Fawkes. I love what I love. His vibe. I love is work ethic. I love his attitude. I love his demeanor. I love his antics all that <hes>. Maybe that doesn't happen if he goes to New York because everyone hates the Yankees but I think if he if he gets a chance to play in October again on a national scale people like Marcus stroman becomes a household name if he's traded to the right market. We're about to see I think in what I hope to see is look. There's a place for nostalgia and again as the resident romantic you know how much I love the love stories of baseball but Marcus Stroman is somebody who when he goes to New York could very well break the moult meeting you don't go on choir a personality like Marcus Stroman and hope to put him in your Yankee box that make sense like that are going to happen and stroke shows GonNa dance whether these were pinstripes are not Stroz GonNa dance and you need to know that you're signing up for that. So if that's what comes the Yankees way then I think you're gonNA start to see a shift in how the Yankees are viewed as a whole not that we haven't already seen that because a guy like luke bouyed can do that for you. He can make you just fucking fall in love with the Yankees he can as much as you might not want to say. He can't jared you would him. I don't want to call it. besties joust repels friends yeah. He came in the office a few weeks ago and we were chatting up a little bit so he's a guy he's. He's a guy that Marcus stroman is somebody who can help usher in is one of the guys that I think we already have identified as a dude who can help usher in and the understanding of or the whole mantra. Let the kids play He. Somebody who who could be that poster board yeah for sure so if that's it that's the end of the STROMAN era in Toronto <hes>. I'm sure there's there are not many fans of the Blue Jays that are happy to see him. Go <hes>. I don't think that there are any really <hes> Jamison tie on has been shut down. This news sucks <hes>. This is a guy that we got a chance to talk to. In spring. We ever run that interview I believe we did. I believe we ran it. I think we ran it early in. I think we ran it like before. We even less retraining actually if we haven't yeah the like the video of him showing you the weight room member we've discovered new piece of gym equipment rose. I called again we'll. I don't want to disclose it because maybe some folks haven't seen that video having heard that interview and would love to take that in it's great jared actually daily fines and discovers a brand new piece of gym equipment that he never seen before he lost a lot. I don't know that even uses it now definitely not but he knows it's there. It's there and it's good to know its functionality see but it was of no interest to me. I understand <HES> SO DALLAS. These your Pittsburgh Pirates <hes> the the loss of Jameson Tie on the effect that that's out on the rest of the guys the rotation the effect that has had on the Pittsburgh pirates season overall all their run differential talk to me. It's just injury. Injury is essentially what has happened to the Pittsburgh pirates to the rotation. That's that's what's happened in the division without injury. You know it's tough to say Corrobos us. It's tough to say it is it is because it's not a it's not a giant chasm in my opinion. There's a there's a lot of stumbles early on that. Put them behind the eight ball. Put them pretty far back back behind the eight ball stretching and claw early on that's not a great spot to be <hes>. You'd like to be able to depend on some consistency in the rotation rotation. That was my opinion supposed to help lead this ball club through this division that I felt like it was was attainable. That's really all I can say about this. It's it's in my opinion not a matter of a complete and total lack of production as much as it is trying to fight through an unhealthy season yeah. It's actually it's. It's kind of strange that the Pittsburgh pirates are in last place but they're eight and a half half games back in the second place team in the aliases ten games back. It's it's tough. That's why I say that division is it was there in my opinion it was sir was and had it got bit got bit. You're got bit by the injury books huck nothing nothing you can do you know the cubs have demoted Addison Russell saw this news was yesterday yep devoid yesterday. <hes> I mean Fuck Addison Russell I don't. I don't care to see him on a major league roster foster ever again. I don't wish him well. I don't wish him luck in his future endeavors in his pursuit to make it back to the big level. I don't care what your talent is. If you're a scumbag I'm not going to root for you. Same goes for roburt. Oh Osuna I enjoyed every second of watching them him. Get his ship pushed in the postseason last year. Fuck you and fuck Addison Russell. I'm glad that he's going to be riding buses for the foreseeable future. It makes it much easier to watching enjoy cubs baseball knowing that he's not contributing to their season in their pursuit of October baseball you ever feel like guys like Osuna and Addison Russell whenever they call it quits here on the rock are deserving of like having to face ace each other in eternity from like forty five feet away with Noel screen each pitch either results in getting hit in the head with no helmet or wearing a hundred eighteen off your forehead the acting out you. That's how it goes like. I'm trying to think of that movie with Tom. Cruise is Tom Cruise where he like. He's reliving each day like the battle scene that he's going through his dying over and over and over auto fucking nope terrible at the movie title Shit <music> <hes> but anyway I feel like that's what those guys should have to endure guys like that like you. Just can't be going in fucking hit women and kids like let's let's can't do it got to tighten it. Shit up so so yeah I'm with you corrobos. It's not I mean I think it sucks for the cubs jobs because as much as the cubs tried to do the right thing around every corner <hes> they were put in a very awkward and tough position when all of this stuff came out with with Addison Russell how to handle this you try to get out in front of it you try to. I mean and again. You have to understand it from both sides business to run so he's an employee at some point in time you'd like for your employees to be productive. If that is the case you're probably going to continue to employ said employees should all things be put behind him in and be able to move forward that being said it's tough to continue to welcome into a clubhouse day in and day out and then when you're not performing. It's tough to not think that that Shit that cloud looming over you. Is it the thing that's it's impacting the lackluster performance so in essence get it all the fuck Outta here Yeah Addison Russell a team if they were to designate him for assignment and another team being like yeah.

This is it. There's three participants J. Dallas the rocket the rules. Are you get to draft one player player at each position to specify like how at least fifty percent of their career at position yeah I did. I did forty percent or more of a player's career so that's like if you hit hit that threshold you basically hit the position threshold and then for guys where it was like the miscellaneous guys we just kind of had to eyeball it because I I don't think like Pete Rose is GonNa end up super relevant like he played like He. He played like twenty percent of his career at five different positions. Maybe not on your team. Maybe not on your TV's. I hope he's I hope he's on your team for winning this competition data my fucking grip maybe he's so we were. We were a little a little bit liberal with with some of the multiple position guys but in general it's it's a player's signature position okay well. I feel like I may drink too much coffee right now. It may have over launched the I know exactly what I'm doing here. I'm just make love to this first round Yeah Jerry. There's no way you guys are taking my guy jared. I'm getting them. Both you're not getting a ball. I have so much data so much I have so much data. Why are you you guys diving? Like what are you diving into like. This is a it's. It's literally shout out to <hes> Boston showed where Canadian shoutout she to Boston Sports emf on twitter. I had my guy running all the numbers for this droughts and see how it goes. We'll see how it goes Boston Sports in Dallas. The first pick your up did is yours with the first overall pick we don't really need to. I mean I'll start here. Eight guys eight guys in the three hundred three hundred club Andre Dawson Carlos Beltran Reggie Sanders Stephan Louis Willie mays Alex Rodriguez Bobby bonds and there's one more guy in that three hundred three hundred club but there's also a guy in the four hundred four hundred club. I'd like to announce. Actually there's also a guy in the five hundred five hundred club corrobos. What Berry look more parts near loser? No no no no no yeah seven six to wow you can put it on all art. The first overall Pick Berry Lamar Bonds Jerry. Are you able to bounce back from that. No Man wow that sucks. It sucks because I I. I wanted Barry a really did want him. My left field snap to look to a different outfield position basically giving Jay Babe Ruth because I I don't want that fucking lose their. There's there's so much angered hostility out of you towards George and I don't I mean I do understand. I get the box for the same reason that George. We're just GONNA be floating out there for me. You're going to have a guy floating out there for you that for some reason you're just okay with for some reason you think is not going to pick Babar's. Hey Hey I can't speak for Jesus fucking Nerd who knows what he's got going on over. He's done something about like he's got numbers on George Herman Ruthin Day Games on Tuesday where the chickens weren't feted as ranch and I'm sure he'll fuck and break that down. I've already penciled in my pick on my list here. I am going worth willing as wow Harry kid first round second overall weary May's my center fielder or maybe he's my d. h.. I Dunno us all the hold on. Do we have to yeah. We have to designate that should be is your D.. H. Doesn't have to be a Lifetime D. The H. G.. It's basically your your extra guy. If you WANNA pick makes Mortiz yeah it's like you know so so. Where is he in your lineup is he? I don't have to declare that. That's what we were talking about Jay. Please intervene here and it it'd be the commissioner of this draft the way you have to be. What is the question Mustang that I have to declare whether or not he's center fielder my d h no you don't have to unless unless you it gets to the point where it's no longer positionally possible so like arid if jared drafts and other center fielder that person automatically defaults into the D. H. spot as of right as right now you can navigate the draft as you see fit right now? He's spotted into center field because he's got an open Centerfield slut. I've got no problem with that. I was just saying I thought that like okay. If you're if we're going to have to pick position by position then that at some point in time would say okay all right here we go. I am now it will become obvious when he takes his D. H.. Absolutely so it's my turn it is wow I did not expect to have Babe Ruth available to me yeah number three overall absolutely make that my first of my two consecutive selections Babe Ruth Snake Drought Yeah Babe Ruth is going to occupy Babe Ruth is going to occupy left field for me I believe and then you know what I'm GonNa fucking do it do it do it and I'm taking a rod as my shorts <music> early. Slot Board is the class of that position baby. You guys style ripken's in the Ozzy. Smith's listen to Derrick jeeter trash bags yeah. That's a that's a wild pick to make in the second round but you've got to respect it. Yeah absolutely have three value relative to position that is aggressive aggressive jared GonNa get not you got to back. This is my pick well. It's your pick nature. Maybe you know if you take them right now. Jaren GonNa take them because I'm getting too. I'm in the worst spot in the draft. Oh just me J. Eiffel Tower right now. You're never too far away from a pick. Though that's the Nice thing about being true yeah you're always right around the corner. <hes> <hes> <hes> says a-rod age a fine wine. All the pundits are like this sabre pundits Sir all over that one right now. I know what I'm doing this pick. What are we got my D. H.? Yeah I know what's happening. Oh Oh you had to go going then and now then and now I gotta say anything. You can hear me while you're allowed. I don't WanNa miss whatever it is could say right now. Okay with with my second pick designated hitter Kamerun Hank Clo- Erin. Oh Wow God who I thought you were going with not <music> all you're not fear right field yeah that is four my d. h.. Wow I got. I gotTA respect that pick Hank Aaron. He was my third man. If Babe Ruth didn't get to me it was going to be hammer and hanging rod. That's a good pick. What did you think I was GonNa take you were going trout okay yeah? I know that Dallas wants that so Dallas Alice you're up sixth and seventh picks overall outfield getting a lot of love early in this draft. Yeah my my D. H.. Awhile My D. H.. H I know what you're doing. You know exactly what I'm doing. And why wouldn't I do it because it's already fucking one nothing but you throw in. It's fucking one nothing and maybe throw I don't know maybe throw four pitches and it's nothing because he's on I this was the most obvious pick of the entire draft. Yeah Gimme Gimme that ricky run yeah Ricky Mother fucking Henderson Bet you bounce things and he'll be and and he'll be a Deif so he can save those legs defensively for the places have P._d.. Speed number seven overall pick douse is third choice who we oh Dallas is third her choice. This is where I have to start thinking about just overall mass production and you WanNa talk about an absolute Lewd Hog just a stall ward ape organizational pillar. He went back and got standing. Oh after standing oh after standing I know I know who's coming all right. GimMe the machine Yup. Oh Prince Albert pools solid back to solid peck. There's a solid pick jared jared sandwich continues. He got in the middle selection but number eight overall at number eight overall at first base. Oh it to curt schilling. We are going with Lou Gehrig Yeah pick that is all network. I definitely think Paulson Gary the class of first base <hes> safe bet there at the safe. Where are you going to go pools if he was available jeered no boy you were going on gang back choices here <hes> <hes>? I know what you're doing too. I've got a solid idea what you're doing and I'm going to write down yeah. Please do right here. Please just keep in mind. Keep in mind I've got right field and shortstop filled so babes and write Arabs at shortstop. Let me just confirm that. What I'm going to do is what I'm going to do here? Yeah Fuck Yeah Fuck Yeah. You got my double double choices. The greatest undisputed hot Cornerman of all time Michael Jack Schmitt why strong off a rod and Mike Schmidt on the left side of my infield they'll mind if I do and and I'm going to go back to the outfield because you can't stay away from the outfield for too long in left field. You cannot leave out there that long kidding. Are you kidding me. The splendid to <music> Ted Williams. Let Me Know Hey ted Williams for Lou gehrig right now we trade after this. I mean right now. You can make that trait right now. You want to rectify missing out on your franchise legend. Do you want to protect with Lou. You're on the clock. <hes> Yeah Fleischer the train. Oh my gosh what a terrain Gary all right. I'M GONNA mark it down the first ever trade within the first ten fix you gotTa love this Shit. Oh Shit God wow the all ironhorse in the stable back. It says my pick although I gotTA write this down we ahead of fourth row we had a fourth around trade fourth-round trade of Williams over to the rockets for Gehrig. Wow <hes> let's see if we can make this one work in terms of impressive dented <hes>. I wonder this is great. Ah How many how many games you have to play at a position to be eligible to be selected in place there. Are you trying to get or trying to get a little ridiculous. You absolutely grinch fuck. I mean listen listen. I'll tell you I'll tell you this. You can put it up for debate but also keep in mind that if you let your cat out of the bag right right right right yeah yeah we're also going to just not I'm not GonNa just shit on any idea that you have but if you're trying to get if you're trying to circumvent the spirit of the draft I will shut that shit down fast try to do. I'm not saying that take a little off the top no no no no no no no no never do such a thing. I believe in the I mean where's here's the clock down. Let's go I believe in the sanctity of of the draft fucking false yes of course I do of course <hes> faulk. I'm kind of curious what you're trying to navigate here. I'm okay all right in right field. ooh Wow Porto Clemente nice pick. Go get him. Go get I own. I only have outfield after trading. Lou Gehrig all right after Dallas makes his first selection here. I'll give the listeners a quick update because everybody loved four guys. Okay my word I mean I can't believe that either. One of these guys are really still here. It's there's plenty yeah. There's there's there's plenty. There's a lot of I mean thought I kinda got. I got position. That's what they call it position Jeez I think I might have to. I think I might have to dip into center field here. Yeah I don't I mean this is interesting. It's just like then. I'm kind of left with no wrong. Answer is kind of a new no and that's what's tough because it's like I look. I'M GONNA I'm GonNa do it. I'm GonNa Fuck and do it. I'm going to do a ticket trout. I'm taking my trout. I've got to take my trout at this point. At this point. He's already better than half the like. I said he's better than half the PUCK and dead guys in the hall already as House we stand today. I mean give it a year in hell have more total career overall value than Ken Griffey Jude so so as of right now we each have four picks or just under halfway through this. I think it's interesting. Eating Dallas has the youngest most modern team so far this team Mike Trout Albert Pool Halls Barry Bonds and Ricky Henderson Jared has the old timey team Ted Williams Willie mays Roberto Clemente and Hank Aaron Great Team. I have a little cried a little bit of I've a little bit of a mix Lou Gehrig Mike Schmidt a rod and the Babe. We are four out of ten picks into this guy. I'm stopping the fuck out of you know. I don't think so beautifully when you've got some jackass at shortstop cal CAL ripken running out there for forty five years for you the starting pitching still completely on the board <hes> no one is drafted a catcher. No one is drafted a second baseman. Those are the and those are the positions that have received no attention so far not that's not a judgment call. It's just an update Dallas your fifth overall pick and second pick of this round. My fifth overall pick is going to be an individual who for my money was able to get it done on both sides of the baseball and from both sides the dish giving chipper Jones what how at third right Yes yes yeah I mean we're talking switch hitting power power prowess. I'm interested to hear the questions that the Kansas City area media asks you afterwards as to why you went chipper over George Brett. That's going to be interesting justifiable but I think you're gonNA hear it from some Kansas City media members. That's Dow Jared Your Fifth Pick Thirteenth Pick overall with the thirteenth picking the draft. We're taking a position that has been yet to be export interesting on the mound. Oh We're Godfather Rocket Roger. Wow four minutes the original rocket. That's a great pig. I was wondering which of Roger Pedro you it ended up taking see I. I was to take clemens because I feel like eventually our teams are going to go to like a fan voting at some trying yeah. I'm trying to say from like steroid guys but like if the overall numbers I think like we have to preface that when we say because in Dallas has barry bonds don't don't be a prick about Sarah for sure people will still be a brick but I'm sure you back to back picks. You know what I think I'm going to do you know I'm just going to exploit the ship out of an underappreciated market again. That's what I'm going to do a leave my awesome Centerfield pick for down the line Yup Gimme the greatest catcher of all time God Johnny Johnny Bench bring it down. It's a solid snag to solve back to get snag now. This is tough. You're not ready to make a decision. Dang dude torn. I'm torn on two guys right now. I don't know what to do so first time. I've really run into this. I feel the push in the poll tug and and you know what I'm GonNa go a mini. Go Peer Stats. I'm GONNA I'm going to tap the old timer and I'm GonNa make I'm GonNa make the first foray I would just went catcher. I'm going to make the first foray and a second base to come on down my old friend Rogers Hornsby. Damn you J you delete. He has over every other second. Baseman statistically is like ause eating. Um GotTa love. What a great pick by me summer saying it's the best value the draft pick number fifteen pick number sixteen? We are back to jared for his six selection. This is this. This is a tough one man. I have catcher for for every position Yep every infield position. That's wild you. Have your entire Infield yeah. Oh I'm leaning towards looking at jared has willie mays Hank Aaron Lou gehrig Roberto Clemente. No no no no more lou yeah. He's got left Field Ted Williams Centerfield Willie mays right Field Clemente D. H.. Hank Aaron Starting Pitcher Roger Clemens. I still love that trade great trade for me. Oh Yeah I think I mean those two are yeah don't think either person got ripped off. No at first base who double X. Germany Fox notorious Homerun Derby poll pick podcasts ago fuckers that AH Dallas got back to back picks you got catcher second base shortstop right field and starting pitcher remaining yes I do and without further ado we're going to bring a guy in to the fold here who when you talk about run scoring opportunities when you think about early theft you think about the way the game was played back in the day Corrobos or grand pepys game a baseball. Yeah I think about a second baseman who I grew up watching grew up admiring. I think about Eddie Collins. Oh that's ooh good statistical support for Eddie Collins. <hes> you know ANWR up watching Him Jersey kid me Bobblehead Day. Don't hate and then from there I oh God <hes> Oh give me the bucket unit. Oh Gimmie Gimmie the unit R. J. Sixteen Coming Dacha for bright center with the HELLWIG wipe out slid row Wilson Miles an hour. Maybe it's your head. I Dunno so we've had to pitchers selected per fan graphs and I will be doing sabre. Metric breakdowns of these teams seems as if you guys were doubting that according to fan graphs the number one pitcher all time according to War Roger Clements the number five pitcher overall Randy Johnson pretty incredible from to modern pitchers all right that was number eighteen jared. You are on the clock Sir Pick Number Nineteen and your pick number seven. Let's let's see I mean. I think I'm looking at looking at third base here. I might lean a little bit more modern. You know what I'm just GonNa do it. My Third Baseman Adrian Belew George George Brett Wade Boggs Eddie Mathews utter lead disrespected Brooks Robinson Adrian Bell trae. Wow the nineteenth pick Adrian Bell Trade Jared's third baseman Jim. You Got Catcher second base in short top left. I am a boy Oh boy I got left field Centerfield leftfielder right bill. We got ruth. Where do you have Babe Babe and right? I guess I can decide depending on what's what's going on. Here should have him on a diet. That's it's called Yeah Edyta fastballs. That's an interesting idea <hes> interesting. I know exactly what I'm doing with my next peck all right. I guess it doesn't really matter where I stick babe in this guy because they're both right field and left field eligible. I'm going with one of the universally regarded classiest men in baseball history. The cardinals legend man usual Israel yeah slotting him in left field. This is tough. I got a great pick coming up so this is this is the nitty gritty. This is when it gets hard. Oh you're you're you're boiling down. I hear you hear boil in it down. Stu and I've got a little like I got centerfield open and E._H.. So how do I wanNA play with this sort of situation. <hes> I'm just looking at my fucking. I two picks thinking like Barry Bonds Ricky Henderson. You know what I'm going to walk back. I walked back that pick take what absolutely not what I was going to try and who's going to try to get do what I just did. I was going to try and get a little juicy but you know what I'll just. I'll just stay straight up. I'll stay straight up for my centerfield. I'm GonNa take I mean maybe the greatest center fielder which is crazy that I'm getting him at number twenty one the racist son of a Bitch Pie by rob. Yeah I read a that's who I was trying to make room for somewhere else as like. Can I stash them at first base. I don't know if that work Damn Dude Stan musial ty Cobb Babe Ruth is my outfield not terrible lot of value to be had their jared back with pick number twenty two overall. You have shortstop second base and Catcher my second baseman Jackie Robinson ice pack. I see you see you yeah. You're not gonNA find him in the war leaders but you look at that Resume Hall of Famer Ho Frazier Their share M._v._p.. Dallas you're up baby catcher shortstop and right field due to put a shortstop in there somewhere don't plenty of good ones left there are there are and interestingly enough jared is also not taken a shortstop nor has jared taken a catcher. You guys have gaps at two similar spots. This is this could create some head to head conflict very well. Could it very will I don't I mean some some WanNa. Call Palm a compiler. I don't know if that's necessarily the case actually know what are they gonna go that route. Oh Shit. I'm GonNa go that route. I'm going to you. I'm GonNa let you I'm not. I'm not going to let you talk me into that right now. You'RE GONNA you're GonNa let somebody else make the shortstop decision for you. That's what's happening here. I got I see you. I'm actually hold on. Where's the is the player pool here all right? He's gone. He's gone I mean how do we not now that. I'm thinking about it. How do we oh don't forget the miscellaneous players I see that that's what makes it interesting but but miscellaneous -Ly I think thank you have a very very interesting right field option available to you right? Now I do and I I. I kinda WanNa make it just because you know what anybody who's willing to walk through fire in a fucking gasoline suit to play this game jared is a guy. I wanted a foxhole with me. You're spending time in the click in the first thing you do when you get out is take that asked to a batting cage at sin that bitch right back up the box where it came from Bob just like ride the bike Corrobos Gimme the bucket hit cake and there is nothing you ending up with Ricky Henderson and Pete rose is just so so on brand the most on brand more pick. I know I know and look I value. I value defense. I do but in this position here who I've got on the mound. I don't give a fuck what fingers you put down. I just need you to do one thing Yup and that's roll the fucking poll baby and I need the best offensive catcher ever play this game on my team so signed him up Mr nine eleven homer himself Mr irrelevant himself round. What was it seventy four some shit like give me Mike Bucket Piazza now with the twenty fourth overall pick this draft MR ALMOST MR relevant in this draft jared you got to slots left one of which is catcher one of which shortstop thank God? I thought Dallas is going shortstop there. Give me the iron man. Give me two time starting nine guest cal ripken junior might childhood. I we're sitting mets shortstop. That was a gift that was this <hes> there's something heartwarming about jared missing out on Barry Bonds right off the gate right out of the jump but still ending up with cal ripken Ted Williams Williams and Roger Clemens. I did did him that favor with ripken there because I'm okay with who get at shortstop so I have. These are my last two picks. I'll be the first one done. I was trying to get cute last time not really not realizing that I didn't even have to get cute because neither of have you guys could've taken this guy my d. h.. Is Unfair. It's nauseating. A lot of people compare the greatest player in today's game to this guy off honest or ninety going Switzer Karatas. I can't believe I have the opportunity to slash. Put this guy is my d. h.. When he could have been the very first center fielder taken the MIC <music> Mickey Mantle Holy Moly was that navigated well? Thank you very much and my starting pitcher. I'm GonNa go old old old old school right the train. Ah Johnson go up Jay all right sort around out my team behind behind the backs. Stop throwing down the ones twos gun in them out at second base winning M._v._p.'s stealing the show sometimes all star Games pudge Rodriguez pudge dialed in Dallas Brayden alum correct right. That's that is you are correct and the final pick of the first ever all time starting hurting nine player draft will fall to Mr Dallas Britain and I like this pig simply because for you to get the nod just thinking about what you guys were doing eighteen. What are you doing at eighteen? Where were you at eighteen? You want to know where I was at eighteen. I was sleeping in the cab of my truck in a desolate parking lot in citrus heights. It's and Carmichael California going to wait at four thirty in the morning. That's what I was doing. When I was eighteen one with this guy was doing he was eighteen? He was starting shortstop for the Milwaukee. You fucking brewers. Give me the kid while sexy beast Robin Yount. I'd maybe the upset of the draft. The Robin Yount was picked not necessarily sure why but I mean the upset of the draft no-one took Kim Griffey junior correct correct a list of a list of notable players who did not make the cut in the all time starting nine player draft Yogi Berra he the of forty-five World Series Championships Pedro Martinez Dro- Martinez Joe this this is actually the most surprising omission overall for me personally because I was mine fine Joe Morgan Morgan. I thought Joe Morgan would get more love. Go Morgan not pick Tony. Gwynn not picked Wade boggs George Brett Joe Dimaggio Joe Dimaggio Carl Yastrzemski you can as you said Ken Griffey Junior Editor Action Frank Thomas David Ortiz Edgar Martinez Cy Young Bob Gibson Steve Carlton. Tom seaver lefty Grove Frank Robinson Robinson who might be the single player who is not picked when you do things like this you gotta let your heart play a role. I understand I'm not precising any. I'm not criticizing anyone other than Pete Rose Kid just play these games with calculators you got that was exhilarating exhilarating loving this. I I'm upset that Babe Ruth fell to Jay early but there's just no way I could let berry no way I'm not signing berry bucket bonds. Let me ask you guys. A question in Dallas issue went. I I'll ask you I got reaction. How do you feel about your team? I feel good. I wonder how the interpretation is going to go with the two picks one my last pick and my second baseman Eddie Collins Yeah not doesn't doesn't have the risk of some of those older guys name recognition exactly the name recognition appealing beal who the fuck is Eddie Collins but you look up Eddie Collins and you're like Oh. That's who fucking collinses so yeah I feel I feel I mean come on. I got conceivably the two best out builders to play the game. I have the best outfield like Barnum. I have the best I feel I I have the best players at their respective positions of all time but the best in the best second baseman the best third basement in the best shortstop offers pitcher best left the best. What's the train? I love the big trained pay. This is going to be a great. I can't wait g with social. Media provides the feedback that the grounds crew gives Ted Williams Willie mays Roberto Clemente Hank Aaron. Go Fuck Yourself WanNA fuck no field. I mean how now now let's create create the batting order GonNa need time. I mean that's definitely not yeah that'll be. Let's make that Friday content yeah. This is going to get this. GotTa get this info to. Ozzy get this graphic cooking start right. Now I leave my lineup as is bear. You WanNA leadoff. Fuck it. Go ahead and I've loved team. I Love I'm just GonNa Stare at it for I. I am as athletic as it fucking gets. Are you kidding me. Robin eighteen year old starting shortstop in the Big Leagues Folks Pete Rose The fucking hit king. He's compiled the most hits out of anybody to play the game of baseball reasonably from both sides Berry Ricky. Come on awed you like trout. Here's here's a project for you in this is definitely going to hurt Dallas. <hes> we got to find out which which team has the highest wins above replacement. I'm all over that Shit I'm going to I'm going to have have all of that information like how homers yeah career homers. I don't think that will be able to calculate career E. R. Because only one guy <hes> yeah career homers. I'll get all the important shit and we'll have cumulative team line. Yeah cumulative team slash yeah. It'll be great. I mean I'm probably GonNa win that. I'll probably win yeah. We'll see we'll. I like. I mean God as far as like that's where some of the old statistics like can really come into play in help the game that some of these guys were playing back then is is very different than the game that is being played today so the stolen bases and shit like that like that's a it's a big deal was he was a big deal then before we before he hit this ad read. Why don't we all just read our lineups Dallas you with the first pick proceed first overall pick in this order? Just go by position Yeah Street it off Yeah Barry Bonds Ricky Henderson Albert Pool Halls Mike Trout Chipper Jones Eddie Collins Randy Randy Johnson Mike Piazza Pete fucking Rose Robin Yount Okay at Catcher pudge Rodriguez first base Jimmie Foxx second pace this Jackie Robinson Third Base Adrian Bell trae shortstop cal ripken Junior left-field Teddy Ballgame Ted Williams Centerfield Willie Maze Right Field Roberto Clemente My D. H. is fucking Hank Aaron and by starting pitcher is Roger Clements catcher Johnny Bench First Baseman the Ironhorse Horace Lou gehrig second baseman Rogers Hornsby Third Baseman Michael Jack Schmitt Shortstop A. Rod left-field stand the man Centerfield ty Cobb Right Field Babe Ruth D. H.. Mickey Eh Mantle and starting pitcher big train water. I think I legitimately think that if you count up the winds above replacement that J. as team is going to have the highest war I come as surprised to absolutely Lee zero listeners but but again understanding what war means and if you put all of that in perspective the you can understand why we'll put it we'll put it in all sorts of perspectives and we'll put it in perspective give it all by just listing the teams and getting people's gut reactions that will also be part of it because war war back then I mean think about it as as we've talked about there. There's guys that are playing baseball. There's guys that were on those rosters. Who who were Milkman you know so those replacement level players then was Milkman as opposed to the replacement level players today a very intrigued rigged Oh? It's going to be Great Dallas you a big C._B._D.. Guy Massive <hes>. What do you know about C._B._D.? distillery. I know that I'm a huge C._B._D.. Fan Dan and I know that C._B.. distillery has come through in the clutch for me. I'm a big oil guy crops oil. I love the topical 's more than anything that is probably my go-to and if on being completely totally honest I use my grandmother as Guinea pig and if she of seventy eight years on this earth can look to me meeting physically look to me and move her neck and tell me hey this shit works. I know it's working and that's what she does applies the topical. That's what I do. Apply the. That's what you should do you should go to C._B.. DISTILLERY DOT COM and did it in you. It seems to work for me. It seems to work for Everybody Got Health Concerns Trust me folks. You owe it to yourself to see what C._B._D.. Can Do for you. I know what it does me so what a C._B.. DISTILLERY DOT COM Inter starting nine and that'll get you fifteen percent off your first order again starting nine for fifteen percent off that's at C._B.. DISTILLERY DOT COM C._B.. DISTILLERY DOT COM code starting nine. That'll get you fifteen percent off so again tough day on the job site tough day at the Office of the keys and the Cube I get it you need to relax. You need to take the pain away C._B._D.. In C._B. Distillery can take care of you folks so again C._B.. DISTILLERY DOT COM starting nine fifteen percent off get heated in you yesterday. which was what Wednesday Wednesday was Barry Bonds Birthday tweet it out like a birthday message with a video clip? The amount of Barry Bonds hate that still exists on the Internet is so so tired and grow up grow up appreciate greatness when you see it. It's it's it's tired to me to be like well shaded dead this a dead that I mean it's just just as a baseball fan. Don't you want to see the best of the best at the best that they can possibly be. That's what Barry was just slip Berry Berry. What's tough is? I guess it's not like I know who killed Kennedy and it's not like I know where Jimmy Hoffa's was buried but I've I haven't understanding. I guess I know things that maybe some of the general public don't understand but it's nothing that hasn't been divulged in one form or another from players of these past eras folks greenies is not the only thing that these guys were taken as they have come out and said before so it's not me telling you this. It's not then tell you like we understand that this is how the game name has gone from its inception to now the evolution each sport has endured this whether it's performance enhancing drugs substance abuse issues that have to be addressed whatever it may be so those players in the past these he's players in the present. Every era is going to have its suspects so at some point time you've gotta make peace with that and I guess like you said you're just start to appreciate what the production is appreciate. What the stats they appreciate what happened? Yes so happy birthday to bury Romar blondes j what up uh-huh what are you doing over there. Blow yourself on taste. Just I'm just organizing all the information right now from the draft twitter questions Dallas what's going on with Chris Davis Mental or physical at this point <hes>. I got to believe it's combination -able if we're being totally honest and those things just go hand in hand that is what it is. You don't feel right. You try to make adjustments early on to get yourself into a position where you can produce slash not feel the pain at the same time. That's a hell of a place to try to linger and live and for K.. D. is used to doing something at will which is hit homers and drive runs in. He's not able to do that right now and it could be again in a combination of the mental anguish he's dealt with in terms of not being healthy him knowing he's not healthy him knowing he's a big part of the offense hasn't been able to do what he wants to do so all that shit comes to head and since that's all slump start and that's kind of the anatomy of a slump one ninety-one batting average four eighty two oh p._s.. Over his twenty six game homeless streak how many third graders could beat corrobos up if they all came at him in a horde. I feel like to sizable like after lunch too good sizable third graders after after a hearty lunch maybe after two milks could probably it'd probably take an entire school. Take me down. Wow like elementary school. Law Greats GRUB BIG BIG K through twelve guy yeah all right so an entire school. That's the answer at least at least an entire school is your Don Alvarez the dark horse in the A._l.. Rookie of the year race yeah I mean yeah. He's now up thirties now up to third among A._l.. Position players in Wins Above Replacement Brandon Lau is I Vogel Bach is second and Alvarez is third Alvarez has played thirty two games brandon. Lau has played seventy six vogue ninety four so on a per game basis. It's not even fucking close yeah. That's what I'm saying. I think the Games playbill ultimately cost him but very conceivable that he could end up with the highest one's above replacement when it's all said and done I mean don't you think that his like what about who has it was. It was Gary Sanchez his was his he he missed an ASS Lotta time yeah but came and was just annihilating baseball's and so he was kind in that conversation I mean Georgiana Alvarez as it sets from his time as you said Jay the time he set foot in the big leagues has dropped moorhead than an eighty year old rabbi sir. It's fucking incredible so you're absolutely right on a game per game basis and I think very well if he continues even a mild form of this production over the course of the remainder of the season. I feel like that games played. Mark might be something that gets kinda overlooked. It's grown the trash I agree. I think especially if brandon allows current injury continues to like winger and he doesn't he catches him a little bit on on quantity. I do think people will be inclined to reward award Alvarez <hes> if he stays anything near this pace fuck Mary kill possible M._l._b.. Expansion locations Vancouver Las Vegas and Portland WanNa read you want if you want to replace Nashville that can be a wildcard to replace one. Oh Man oh man that's not as easy as as it might sound measure it. How many of these places have you been to? You've never been to Vancouver. I'VE BEEN TO VEGAS PORTLAND. No you've never been to Nashville. I think like the Nashville has like the Nashville sounds yes so I would probably do. That's our AAA team actually. Is it Yeah Ah yes. I like the idea of baseball in Nashville I think I would <hes> I think that I would I would fuck vegas just because I know that there's talent out there <hes> but I think that it would be very hard to get a loyal fan base in Vegas because everyone's either transplants are not there for very long so it would be cool to have a Vegas baseball team so I'll say Fuck Vegas <music>. I'm GONNA marry Nashville and kill Vancouver because I just baseball in in Canada. It's just they're not. They're not married to it. They're not corrobos. They're not I. I cannot believe you're saying that right. We're in fans for the bluejays are now nowhere where the expos they move because the fans and support the team another team Canada. I feel like I feel like all things considered now. There's been a revolution in there might be a fan revolution where the fucking fans it was Marcus Stroman last star and there's nobody there no I'm with you. I think in terms of where the fuck are they right now. I think these cities though the reason I'm saying Vancouver Hoover is a is a decent place because I played Vancouver and I know what that draw was like being in a short season atmosphere like that's fucking rookie bill. You know what I mean. We're peons there and that's where fucking Pamela Anderson was discovered for crying out loud Bill Anderson was the baseball team there then pedal hit or was fucking ticket girl. I believe was like a fifty fifty raffle girl at the Net Bailey stadium in Vancouver Canada. Oh Yeah so there's there's talent Vancouver couvert well but I get what you're saying might not be the dedicated fan base but I still think that there could be a draw there. I Will Oh man Fuck Mary. I'M GONNA say see I'm going to say Fuck Vegas because for the same reason it's going to be a cost of turnover so that'll be fun. You do face concentrate over. I like that. I'm going to kill off. I'M GONNA kill off off Nashville really yeah. I'M GONNA kill off Nashville because they got a log on on their like. Look it's Nashville. That's where everybody's GonNa showed up for the on what's that they showed up for the reds run yeah no they did they did. I just don't know that I mean hey. Maybe I'm completely wrong in a big league baseball club is something they would get behind but I don't think they would. I don't think that there is any question whatsoever that Portland would be a landing spot for a major league baseball team. I need you to know something the I and I don't even know the name of the fucking team and I'm sorry <hes> but the female soccer team in Portland they draw. I WANNA say like ten to twelve thousand a night. That's a professional female soccer team like if you could have anything going against you as far as sports are concerned in America being a professional female entity and then being a soccer entity. Those are all things that aren't extremely popular for whatever reason in America reasons we understand marketability overall performance whatever but Portland they have had baseball. They want it back. The pediatrics diamond project is something that's gaining traction so there's no belt my mind that baseball would not only exist but thrive in the Portland market so I would marry them knowing that it's going to be a long happy relationship agree. Mary Portland Faulk Nashville Kill Vegas. Wow too hot there for a little bit so it's it's a billion ball flies final thoughts final thoughts on the draft. Yeah thank you for that. It's just cool having the best team of all time I I thought so we had a hold department working on this and again shout to Boston sports IMF on twitter for the research department and <hes> the scouting. It's just been it's been it's been a team effort so to to sit here today before you with the greatest team of all time <hes> being the architect of such a such a group of talent and <hes> it's it's honoring. It's flattering. It's incredible to be a part of thank you yeah I just I guess I'd like take time as well to to say thank you for allowing a baseball man and the baseball feel to to religious shine through here. You know what I mean. No numbers involved it's really about going with the most important calculator J. Jared and and and that's what adds up in the heart and for me having the most athletic club ever fielded. I feel like that's a tremendous start so I really don't have anything else to say other than it was. It's not a good choice given me. The first overall pick sounds like two dudes gripping make you particularly second and third. Thank you very much ladies and Gentlemen Ni- accept this honor the Crown Tuesday yeah question. Where was your? Where's your over? Where is your what is your favorite pick? Oh great pick of your club and it has to be selection from the third round on so I guess starting at the fourth round on because your first three picks you can't be excited about. I feel like you kind of knew where for those we're going to go. I know my answer. I was pretty expensive but my Jackie Robinson pick because he's you wouldn't see him. If you're looking at the war leaders in all the all time numbers <hes> I think as far as getting <music> getting some incredible value lower in the draft love my Jackie Robinson pick but loved my Lou Gehrig for Ted Williams trait on precedent never been done before in the history of starting nine all-time drought. Yeah we had a mid draft never been done before incredible incredible. I didn't see coming was taken about. I found myself quickly on the outside looking in felt like a bystander in the draft no idea what was going on my you should've seen my office scrambling eight everywhere it was it was it was like that E._s._p._N.. Commercial fire alarms smoking mascots running every the fucking crazy yeah that was yeah I would go with Mickey Mantle with my pick tremendous pick. I knew exactly where you were going. When you started to compare today's Today's best baseball player with and honestly early on I was like do I take mantle because this is the guy that trout is compared to or am I going to put the eggs in the basket basket and tell everybody that at the end of it all this is going to be the guy that everybody's compared to and well? That's what I so. I took drought your favorite picker. No absolutely not I mean the fact that I knew that you want to try trout and just let it happen because my team is is going to be better. Regardless is what a commendable act by me and my organization I think I think the most commendable act was me allowing you to have cal ripken junior gutless thing. I don't think you had shortstop open though at the time no I absolutely did because my best picker. My favorite pick is Robin Yell. Who was my lower last pick yeah yeah and it has I mean? I don't know that it has anything thing to do with the statistical production. I think it has everything to do with the fact that multi M._v._p.. Winter like pure three-time m._v._p.. Eighteen years old eighteen years old in the big leagues. It's just that's fucking awesome for pick so I like my dream. Milcho pick to feel like history will look back on him very fondly yeah I mean regardless of whether or not pete rose has a plaque in the hall of fame is a hall of Famer. He's myself and I just keep looking at shortstop. Robin Yount Cal Ripken the Rod yeah the big gap <hes> Hey I gave it to them gave it to them. LOOSENED DIDN'T A-ROD overall pick was era fucking four yeah. That's pretty aggressive right but it's it's if you're going to if you know that a Mickey Mantles GonNa be there for yet number twenty seven you get the shortstop that stands above them all to picture. Hey thanks smart. You know all right so <hes> we'll make our LINEUPS. We'll put them around the starring nine twitter account. We're GONNA put it to a test. We're going to put it to a pole and we're going to see which of these three teams is the best. We're GONNA put that data out there to data data will follow need that data see next week these out.

But we begin today with the Milwaukee Bucks Boycotting Their afternoon playoff game with the Orlando Magic the bucks never came on the court for warm ups. Clearly, one assumes the bucks took this action in the wake of the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha Wisconsin, a town just south of Milwaukee. We'll bond what do you make of the decision and what it means both in the moment and historically. We'll Tony, let's deal with the moment I because this is still evolving, developing and breaking to use that were we use in the news business. The athletic has already reported that the rockets and funders scheduled to play sixes eastern time tonight will not that that game's going to be off. You know there's been support. By some of the Milwaukee brewers. who were playing at home was scheduled to against Cincinnati tonight and his is spin this in the direction. I'd see it going if the Milwaukee Bucks are willing to boycott a playoff game not in their a playoff game are the Milwaukee brewers then GonNa WanNa suit up and go out on a field in Milwaukee and play given that there's already support in their clubhouse who what's going on in Orlando with the Milwaukee Bucks. So you've got you've got those sort of immediate issues Tony and it's going to be reverend. What are we? What are other basketball player thinking Lebron James you know either tweeted or instagram posted something recently today that expressed his extreme level of frustration I think. The Doc rivers, remarks last night powerful, and eloquent. They moved me enough that I reached out dock at like two o'clock in the morning to just exchange ideas about what, what, what, what is this and doc did not plan this. It was an outpouring which he told me and I think that resonated Tony particularly with players Doc rivers and Gregg Popovich may be the most respected coaches in the league doc rivers for younger players. He's a beacon to them in many ways and I think that this had something to do with what players felt and what we are now seeing executed. Okay. So let us run the tape of Doc rivers right now and then come back to this discussion if we can run that. We're the ones getting killed. Were the ones getting shot. It's amazing. Why we keep loving this country. And this country that's not loved back. My Dad. Was A cop. I believe in good coutts we're trying to get them to protect us. Just. Like the protect everybody else. All were asking is you live up to the constitution? That's all we're asking for everybody. For everyone. So I watch this two or three times today I have enormous respect for doc rivers liked them a lot as a player. Loved them as a broadcaster I think he's a terrific coach I. Think he's a fine and smart man and I watched this and I could not do anything. But agree with every single thing that doc river said there was one point. And you didn't hear this on this tape but he said you know essentially I would just like to be a coach and those days are gone because we put athletes not so much on a pedestal but our availability athletes is such that we ask them questions every single day questions that we don't ask C. E. O.'s questions that we don't ask judges questions. That we don't ask people around the country, but athletes and coaches are expected to answer, and so doc rivers can't just be a coach has to be a statesman as well. You've known him almost his whole life and I know how much you like him. So you can talk about this but then what we've got to get to is what to the players hope in the short term and long term to accomplish here we'll Tony I. Don't know differ players as young as they are. Yes. There's thinking going on I was glad that Fred van bleed norm. Powell Toronto two guys names people don't really know I got to know them last year in the playoffs because I was standing in the locker listen to them because it just smart discerning thoughtful guys now just like listening to them, and now here they are. At the forefront of something and have lead express something you just say wait a minute what how I'm getting asked this question what am I committed to doing the wondering out loud and I'm going in this direction because I don't know that they know what the long play is but Tony we don't. We can't afford to have long long play COSC- eight to twelve to fifteen to twenty more black men specifically are women shot and killed or put a on your neck. The long term play doesn't work anymore. You've got to play for now, which is what? You're hearing and I said this yesterday is the frustration that angered the desperation and I said this months ago because I'm older than those guys and so my frustration has been you don't hear me you don't hear you even here in this country yet the Republican national. Convention. Then I hear in this then I, give it a damn about black lives mentioned black lives. So we've got a portion of people in this country who are not nearly ready to get on the Bandwagon Tony, and this is the frustration and the desperation that you hear whether it's from. Doc Rivers, whether it's from a player whether it's from whomever and their points that we have to get to at some point about what the League is GonNa do this -Ly has not on just push back on these players as I suspect other and another league in the NFL would have done months ago. If now weeks ago I, think that commissioner Goodell made a u-turn but I don't know about the owners backing him this league is not GonNa, do that to these players and coaches so the question will be what does the NBA. Now want to do. So, this is thank you for asking that because we were both trained as newspaper reporters and I sit here now I don't have any answers whatsoever. But because of my training I've got a lot of questions I look at my notes. What is the immediate goal whereas the? NBA. Players. Association is this. Where's the team owner in this? Where is Adam Silver? Surely this has been discussed surely, there is a contingency plan because they're too smart not to think this could have happened. You know what is the impact? Do they play tomorrow? Do they stop playing and then my last note Mike is I honestly never imagine this and I'm looking blind now I have no idea what will happen next. Last night. Yeah. You could see it coming Tony before doc even talk if we just listening to players I talked to a few in the bubble and a lot of people outside of it and this was percolating. Yes. Because the short term Tony is to get people to stop killing folks. That's the short term. That's a short term goal stopped shooting me. Stop, make it. So the I am not afraid to see a police car driving down the Dan Ryan in Chicago or the Beltway in Washington DC or wherever the hell you want to be the four zero five in La make it so that I can not look over my shoulder at a police car and worry if my son is going to be safe in the car these are the immediate questions that we are dealing with, and this is the emotion you heard in doc's voice and how think about the complexity for Dr Perspective, his father was a cop a new docks father. I mean. It's it's so difficult in the point of view can be different from person to person, but the first goal is stop killing people. And Tony I told you all spring. I am not singing coon by I. Don't believe that the country has made a term I. don't because people are still getting shot when people was not shot anymore than I'll say, okay, let's hold hands and sing coon by but I told you all spring I'm cynical about this. This is why could no-show Wisconsin is why? Thank you. We're gonNA take a break. We will be back in a moment. Did you know GEICO's now offering an extra fifteen percent credit on car and motorcycle policies? That's fifteen percent on top of what Gyco could already save you. So what are you waiting for your baby to let you sleep in? Sleep another half hour. Thanks Sweetheart A. And you'll change yourself to. There's never been a better time to switch to geico save an extra fifteen percent when you switch by over seven limitations apply visit GEICO DOT COM for details. It's your home speaking and I need you to do me a couple of favors I cut. You'll get that blueberry that rolled under the fridge last week. It's throwing my functions way off second thing, bundle your home and car insurance with GEICO. It's easy and we could save money.

The NBA has announced that all of tonight's games including the Blazers Lakers have been postponed but there was NBA action on the court last night and it involved a triumph of Michael Wilbon will bind you call called. You called that the clippers would pound the mavericks and they did one, fifty, four to one eleven. You call the Paul George would snap out of it and he did getting thirty five points shooting twelve for eighteen and crediting talk with a psychiatrist about depression. And anxiety and the bubble. You didn't call that Marcus Morris would say he didn't deliberately step on Luca Danni pitches injured left ankle, which it looks to me like he did we'll buy where do you WanNa Start Paul George Sony I think Paul George is the important development in that he came out and talked about something that is incredibly difficult for anybody to talk about that no matter what they do and I remember talking about this all star weekend past with Kevin Love. About. What would be conceived or perceived as emotional psychological frailty or just dealing head on with these sorts of issues which could or could not include depression Paul George didn't go that far talked about talking to someone needing some counseling and he said he just checked out for a minute and what was going on in the bubble bothered him and I respect the hell out of Paul George for that and see freed up last night. Did he not with the way he played and conducted themselves. Good for him. No Darren. Yes, I mean to get to the game in southern no point in getting to the game. The clippers are a better team and they should have won the series already. They haven't wanted yet I. Still think it Michael Seven porzingas can play now for is doesn't play now I don't I don't think. Seven at this point but I did think that Marcus Morris from what I saw I thought that was delivered on dodges ankle and I think that I mean he's a player. He's an intimidating, very physical player and I think that you know how did you see that like basketball four hundred years until the last few? I mean, that's that's what basketball has always been Tony the basketball you and I covered in the eighties and nineties, and in about ten years ago to least we're not having that anymore. So it was a throwback move and that's what. He's a big tough guys brought in for that purpose. Yeah. Let's move to baseball. Tone. Chicago baseball specifically. But on the south side white sox started Lucas g Alito, got some help from rightfielder Adam ingle to record the final out of a no hitter. Overall. Toledo. Allow just one walk to the sorry pirates while striking out thirteen guys think he had thirty swings and misses. ALITA was celebrated. He was celebrated prospect with your nationals but just two years ago era above slates you guys dumped him. So this feel more like a one off or the arrival of star. So this is sort of personal with me because of what you just mentioned, he was signed to be the next Stephen Strasburg and. And a trade was made the trade was made and part of it getting back was at a meeting who was the regular right fielder now. For The Washington nationals, the nets really needs starting pitching. Now Strasbourg is out for the rest of the year. SCHERZER's given up one hundred home runs. Every single game Corbett is in and out and Sanchez actually looks like he he might be done. So the question comes to me in my mind. Was it wrong to trade G Lido for. And the answer is a thousand times out of a thousand. No wasn't wrong at all. 'cause the nets won a world series. I'm happy to Lucas G Lido is doing very well now in Chicago I'm happy for him and I'm happy that as partially as a result trade then that's one of the world series I'm GONNA CRAWL AT NATS corner now says he's wearing the Chicago White sox uniform point out that while the cubs got all the attention early on because it comes got off to a thirteen and three start slowed down Dylan first place in their division but you know struggled a little bit too tigers beat him up last night. The White Sox Tony of the best team in town and there were a lot of people who saw this coming throughout the off season even going back to last season when I thought the white sox sort of underperformed this should have been coming late last season. But now they can just they can hit out with the best of them that this dodger like and their ability to just blast home runs Antonio if you get a pitcher like g Alito if you get a guy like him. I don't care if it's one season I know it's a sixty game season. If people in May, want to put an asterisk next to it but the white sox have got going on in a way in Chicago that they have not since two thousand five when they won a world series no, they're not as popular as a cubs and Kenny Williams wants told us now the president of the White Sox it would take two or three world series victories to make that happen. But if we concentrate on right now, the white sox look as good as anybody in baseball. Good to hear you spend a lot of time in Chicago and Root for both teams. Again, we moved out to Phil Mickelson's victory this afternoon in his first ever champions tour appearance. Mickelson shot a combined twenty to wonder he won by three shots will bond how'd you feel about lefty playing in this tournament and taking this money? Good. This is what he should do. Look Tony. I mean I don't know when I started paying really close attention to the what I still call the senior tour the champion's tour baby maybe. Maybe. When I turned forty, I start paying attention to what the guy's doing fifty I watched them play anyway and so Tony, the guys who win like seventy five percent of the guys who win a fifty, fifty, one, fifty, two, fifty, three years old except burn are longer who's sixty four and still win it. Okay. But the rest of them when you turn fifty, it is time to grab the gold baby because what you're going to do because you're still playing like you were playing on the regular PGA. Tour. Do I fill could win like six of his first twenty times on the champions to he could win that many maybe more. Six of his first twenty feel could win six of his first six. He would eighteen of his first twenty not that this is like going to the ticket window at the track and putting your hand I just give me all the money you have. He is by far the best player on the senior tour I was surprised he deigned to even play on it, but he didn't qualify for the Fedex playoffs. So is dance card was free. He's going to roll through this thing away Dustin Johnson rolled through data vet last week. Don't underestimate Phil Phil underestimating or I got him winning. Better. Twenty nobody does that except tiger like two thousand Doug Crazy? Six out of six, hundred, eighty wkaz. Will Give me a real number eight. Still come the pacers part ways with nate McMillan replacement they're looking at me surprise you and NC state pushes back a football game scheduled for two weeks from now. You're underestimating filled on. The vet you just put out there filming take that I'll take A. Tim Picture of which. Bright.

David Price. Price was traded to the dodgers from the Red Sox as part of the mookie betts deal but price saw it out of this season saying July that baseball was not putting the health of its players I to help the dodgers minor leaguers. With the financial hardships as a result of the corona virus price pledged to give each minor leaguer who was not on the dodgers forty man roster one, thousand dollars in the month of June price gave up his own salary. He helped players. He didn't even know price lead the majors and strikeouts in two thousand, fourteen he led the American league in era in two, thousand, twelve and two, thousand fifteen. He won the Ail Al Cy Young in two thousand twelve and Al Comeback Player of the year in two thousand eighteen when he helped the Red Sox win the world series by starting. And relieving winning two games over the years. Prices had a rather contentious relationship with the baseball press, but it's hard not to respect what he has done during this pandemic. Tony respected even admire it i. mean he did something that was so thoughtful and measured and self less. So I, don't care about all that other stuff I mean when people started talking about opt out the word opt out took on something that was the little cynical. It should not. If you consider David Price did to opt out at what he did with his own money money from his own pockets. Cheers David Price. Not, so happy anniversary Paul, molitor. On this thirty three years ago. The brewers hall of fame third. Basement. So as thirty nine game hitting streak come to an end when he went over four in a one nothing extra inning win over Cleveland in fact, Molitor was in the on deck circle when Pinch Hitter Rick Manning drove in the winning run in the bottom of the tenth. The hometown fans in Milwaukee's county stadium were more interested in Mali's hitting streak and in the game and they booed manning as he walked off. The field molitor described the booing is a distortion of priorities. He said he walked up to Manning Manning said, sorry and monitor said, sorry, you won the gate after Joe Di Maggio set the record fifty, six straight in one, thousand, nine, hundred, forty, one only pete rose's forty, four and nineteen seventy-eight has exceeded monitors. Thirty nine Molitor was a first ballot hall of Famer in two thousand four after twenty one seasons but three, oh six, batting average and three, thousand, three, hundred, nineteen hits, which is tenth all time what I thought. Molitor played almost lived in Robin Yount Shadow even though I think if you pressed me I'm going to tell you model was a better player than. And look at the tandem was there was they were great but I'm just saying if you made me choose one over the other would you not choose molitor over you out? I think it's a coin flip probably happy trails to phillies. Thanks to Victor Robe blaze in the sixth inning of yet another disappointing loss for the founding Washington nationals. Last night the phillies had jeans Segarra on I when Alec. Boehm into. Screaming. Line drive to center field that looked like it was going to the war not only did Victor rollerblades leaked to catch the ball but you have to record it. He turned back to the Infield and launched a two hundred eighty, eight foot strike to first base to double up. Sikora who had gone around second base anticipating hit robe. Lace was on the warning track. He was facing the stands. He not only threw the ball a remarkable distance, but he threw an eighty five miles an hour on the fly to his drubel Cabrera Nats. Fans have grown accustomed to replace going over the wall to bring back home runs as he did last week to Atlanta's Austin Riley but this play was totally unexpected. Now, if he could only hit twenty six strikeouts in twenty five games but I'm bitter because the natural last place in the division say great play. Forgive me the I don't want to hear that whining Tony. If, that doesn't remind you. You hear a Willie mays I don't know what does the catch the throne by the way I don't want to hear all these NFL dies who want to give you all this stuff about how great their arms are the ain't no greater than victim robot arm I guarantee you that I'll take on because anybody. Great. Prospect as is one Soto one update the athletic before that NBA players have called from meeting tonight in Orlando to determine the next steps might your thoughts on that they're all in the bubble together you know going to need to have this meeting is going to be one of the most important meetings, not just of the season with the bubble but of their lives. Do you think Adam silver with their decision. You think they bring Adam silver in now they don't bring him in to talk to him to talk to a lot of people I talked to each other. Okay, let's go to the big finish. The Pacers fired head coach, nate McMillan. Your thoughts always talk about you know what? Tony, becomes, available billions of good coat on his own and the pieces have been in the past I. I don't understand this I really don't. NC States football game with UTECH move from September twelfth of the twenty six after positive Koba test your thoughts. I think we're going to see this happen a lot I. think it's going to be very hard to get straight through the season without postponements. The honest one NBA defensive player of the landslide I assume that's okay with you. Yeah. Go to form. Tony. Narrowly ahead of Anthony Davis in Knin go bare. But I, thought the Janas, deserve that issue Anthony Davis has been great. Whitening bruins tonight series tied at one who you like more. Taking original six team I'm GonNa Take Boston last one Serena Williams lost in three sets last night concerned about her US Open process. This is the. US, open preparations or performance.

I don't wear too good for me in my closet and I don't wear what still where you at is on a lot of money we're GONNA. PTI boys and girls in today's episode. Lamar Jackson plans to play the buffs and Lakers Attaran tearing up in lane. KIFFIN has his sights set index e kit but we begin today with the third gigantic free agent signing this week Anthony Coming Ren dawn has left the nationals for the angels and two hundred forty five million dollars over the next seven years a need thirty five million dollars a year Ren Dome will join join Mike Trout to give the angels. Maybe the best one two punch in baseball and he will leave a gaping hole at third base for the nets will. What does this do for the angels? And where does it leave the world champion champion first of all my condolences. You're holding up. Well I didn't know tears now streaming. I'm going anything that you've been pretty good. I'm so you can with this. I would not be so good with this because the nationals look I I know they did this last year. They lost Bryce Harper. They would better one did not gonna be better without no. I'm saying Rice Harper Arthur when the outfield was Adam Eaton INVICTA rollerblades and one guy they were they were plus. That's right the nationals. In that plus one and then go big Mike and he was so beyond the seventh inning seventh-inning n beyond particularly in September and October. Oh my God Mike. In his contract year he he had his best season. It was the most clutch guy out there. And you're not gonNA just replaced. No no harm no no no. As a matter of fact they now have one fulltime infielder trade ternary short. They got nothin' at third a minor league got nothing and they got part time guys at first and second the difference difference for Nats Fans. Is this the mystery. And don't obviously the difference is Bryce Harper one hundred miles up the road in division. Yeah Anthony Randolph. Went across the country and left the league. So this feels like Kawai Leonard. It's not anger. It's not anger. Let's go to the angels who now Anthony Rendell and my trout and suddenly finally finally because I mean a whole you know they got Shohei Ohtani told me back to. I'm not sold hold on Otani as other people but my point is when you have trout and Rin Dome you mentioned one two punch. You now have helped trout. You make that line of look a a little bit more fermentable. There's a there's a there's a minor leager common that they love very just ought to be better but they still got to address the pitching ninety five point four. Era last landed here. Okay this starters. DFL In baseball in innings pitched five six four for the starters era worse than the American. That's that's why they wanted Garrett Cole they've got to have starting pitching or they don't make money. The Washington nationals chilled team with starting pitching. Sure Sir Corbin Straws and by the way if you think you had a good week or somebody else had a good week Scott. Boris signed clients to eight hundred. Sixty one million dollars our good for him. That's it is one more yours. Tommy without that puts without Aaron. Don't I don't care how great was you wouldn't have one this pastor nats our world a win that's our hurt but they can get Josh Donaldson they can get your boy Kris Bryant. Get somebody if you're one of them but you gotta give up something to get. That's Brian but they got it right. I Want I want near your leftovers. We'll count down to the Mark Jackson. Time Tony yes the policies to the jets. That's who are reportedly going to be on the field to most of us have limited to zero interest in the other elements of this game. If it wasn't for Lamar Jackson I'd go straight to the two hour season finale temptation island. I'm begging you come with me Tom. You on board with my contention Jackson by himself is a big enough star to watch against the sorry team. Your jets bad game Lamar Jackson is the only reason to watch. I don't know if he can bring Sam darnold no. I don't know if better stop. It's getting better. It's getting better just saying so. We're leftover sometimes in the pot for three days. It doesn't mean you want to call this. The these are not draws the jets are not a draw. The New York giants were drawn New York. The gesture not draw the Baltimore Ravens. Ribbons are not a draw they're basically faceless team built on defense. TV audience for an early game this year. And you know why because he opponent was a forty niners or the patriots retreats they depend on their opponents. The reason to sit down to watch. This game is Lamar Jackson. Now I'm GONNA be honest among go back and forth with the President's Cup because this game is compelling to me go back and forth with Celtic sixers. That's what you ought to be going again for people who didn't island I'm GONNA go back. Forthwith the President's Cup the President's Cup is fine when you watch later on the rebroadcast on the golf channel. It's just fine. Watched them live sports sportsman up. That is actually live. That's live in Australia. I Love Golf variously not in America. It's usually you're you're planning Erica. That's just wants a show. Your account talking about Kuwa- let's rate great the Milwaukee every week for more than five the Milwaukee Bucks without Jonah Son. Combo beat the Pelicans last night to move to twenty twenty two and three. They've now won. Sixteen Games in a row. The Lakers beat the magic last night. To also move to twenty two and three and the Lakers have now won twelve straight on the road. What am I missed the first time in twenty five years the two NBA teams of twenty two and three? So that means. Cleveland never did that win. Golden State at the same right. Who have have you been more impressed with so far did it was? I got one of the right. It was a kimes rock. Yeah did you know who the other team was. Got That one wrong but I had a kimes rocky battle. I didn't know that I have. I've lost track that I've lost track. Tony I sat down and try to do this with producer restored near Matthew Kelleher. We went through every win every loss. And I've tried to separate them because at first I thought. Oh it's gotta be the Lakers and then you go through the schedule now. Because they've played most of these teams at home against teams under under five hundred. You go to Milwaukee and I thought they maybe had a more impressive win or to the are eight and one against the West. But I can't I can't separate them and I know we're playing tiebreaker. 'cause they're tied. Do you have one that you just say well. Look I have been sucked down. The Vortex of Lebron James is Arc of career He didn't make the playoffs last year. This is a revenge. Just it is so because of the Star Power of Lebron James my first inclination that is to say that the Lakers are more impressive but they added Anthony Davis. So there's supposed to be a lot better milwaukee not only didn't head anybody law your most awesome Brian in the words of Matt Kelleher. Georgetown Grad. This is Reggie and the miracles from a long time ago. They got one guy and they are that great so in fact to me it's more yes. More impressive is Milwaukee Mitch. Next week. They're gonNA play no Lakers at Fox. Tony but Lebron Ozzie and VP. Right now yeah okay. Yeah he's the most amorous. He's the most glamorous player the reason he's the MVP is because of the hardship ship of last year. Well look at this year. He's also raised. The level of Anthony. Davis does already raised. And why is he doing this because he missed the if he wins a title at the age he will be a major Michael Jordan's last title. Ix He'll be win Jordan especially that three different teams but what you know what he'd have his own wing Brian James and by the way to compel you better. Who WanNA WANNA do next week when you realize that? The Games in Australia the goths live live live. Sports Live Sports. Like just wait. I got the rest of the year to nail unions. uh-huh Tony I know you would just burning for lane kiffin new absolutely well. How about this? The athletic is reporting that Kiffin a few days into his get. Get Ole miss is trying to locate or poach everybody who ever worked a day for Nick Sabin to hire him and intact teaming up to take a shot at the king. That's not miss. That's right if you remember. Saving used Kiffin as a public whipping boy and banish them between the national semifinal and championship games three years ago. Now Oh kiffin wants revenge on. Sabin Duncan this work. Can this sometimes successful dope actually take down Nick Sabin. I mean there's some sort of quest by Lane Kiffin I duNno I dunno lane Kiffin. I don't know if that's a big deal. But I'll tell you this lane kiffin worked at Alabama worked for Nick. Sabin saw the assistance at Alabama. And he understands that these assistants are all good because Alabama is the criminal creme in College College football half of the people were for Nick Sabin or coach head coaches in the real sea at the moment including leg given so that is a strategy that to me takes all the sense in the world. I don't know if the strategy makes any sense we've seen people go out and try to amass other people's assistance and actually usually doesn't doesn't work at least not in pro football but I liked. This is petty. It's mean everything lane. Kiffin seems petty and mean but but I love the he wants to get back in if you might as well be the James Brown on the big payback when the irs use James's own wife to dive him out and he produced the greatest song of his career. The big payback. This is the big payback for lane. kiffin except I don't think it's going to happen because I think you save a win another championship high would say rub his head. Yeah Sam gone now. I will say this that that. Take your shot at Auburn. First before you talk about. Mississippi's there's something like that. Texas am beat saving and Lsu beat beat saving and Mississippi with you freeze cheated. This can be done. That's like once you. I'm talking about the big dam down means need you gotTa beat Vanderbilt. Beat you with a couple of games when a couple of days before you notice. Well let's take a break. We'll homes injured. Hand affects them against against the broncos. We're going to have Steve Young off after about the Patriots fans who wing their own team. What they can't do that harden they haven't given them already just as a reminder kids That's live golf tonight. Cow Stralia option is brought brought to you by Mercedes Benz the best or nothing. There is a time when healthcare made made house calls thanks to CVS health. That time has come again within home. Care visits for those who need extra help. Nurses that administer intravenous treatments in patients homes. uh-huh home delivery video visits or care by face to face chat right from bed at CVS health. We're creating the future using a simple idea from the past. Cvs where health is everything. Not on prescriptions eligible for delivery fifteen of the. NFL season. Kicks off tonight. which makes it a perfect time for a visit from the man? I once intercepted when I was playing free safety. The San Antonio Tonio gunslinger go the distance took you down. Remember when I was twenty nine. I don't show up in many of the film things I chased you down did slow but I got a tick you off Steve. Young boys and girls. Let's start with this. Patrick Mahomes says at the swelling in his throwing in has gone down. He's he's able to grip the football again in your experience. What is the greatest effect of a hand injury? People have to understand that. No no almost I I mean what sixty pass a four forty passes in a game and thirty five of them are off. You know you have to do things that are not just totally balanced unst and so the pressure on the hand is the last piece of trying to get something on the ball. Would you not perfectly ready to throw the football. And so that's the that's the thing it's like. Oh I hit feels pretty good on Thursday Thursday and you toss it. Oh yeah all sudden on on the Game Day you gotTa Rip it falling back or sideways and Austin as wow it is not ready to play. So that's what happens. A Lotta Times and so so to me. The hand doesn't truly tested. And you can't shoot the hand up. All will deaden the thumb. WE'RE GONNA move up quarterback for a second can even know. Tony hates that. New England fans booed the Patriots Sunday. Steve this is unthinkable to me when home fans Bouba particularly basically the Patriots is always discouraging. Although I can't I don't remember you ever. Getting booed is San Francisco ever or a agent from it a little bit. It's a little bit contextual. Like playing well they kind of get grumbly. I mean it's like hey we're supposed to be great you know and you're I'm great. I'm great is a fan and we're supposed to be great great great but why are you a great today and some of the Times I really want to say look just just come down combined center let me just give you one snap. Just give you a sense of lie. You know when I'm great and you're like it's Zillow. Different Okay just And how many times I want to take the mic for through Intercom for the whole stadium. Excuse me throw was perfect. Defensive celente tipped it. I'd never thrown a better. I mean like you wanted to tell people the true story but of course you have to eat it all so it's tough when they grumble grumble grumble for a reason. So it's usually because you're up playing well but New England when you guys were on top. I know they're so used to dominating and they're panicking. It's you've got to say look. They're doing because they're panicked because just like oh my gosh. Tom's almost done this bill. Stay is this thing hol coming to an end to the panic in the streets right now and that's why they're bullying because our panicked. You hear right I mean sometimes they tell you they don't here but you hear it right. Everyone it's like those. I don't read the paper. The sports section in the locker room is the most I mean nowadays. I'm sure the digital but it's like it was the most worn out piece of paper in the history of man time the data here in fact you have to try to just not hear everything because because you can't help it all right we'll shift to the NFL. I we think this is a big story. They have publicly conceded that they are going to review officiating at the ended the year from the top down. Do you have any particular suggestions as to what they should do. Look I think the reason why the league has just skyrocketed marketed. In the last twenty years is because they finally made a partnership between players and owners and that partnership has built borne so much fruit and people could say. Oh Oh I don't like the split of the revenues. I want to go fight over this or that but they truly brought players in partnership and I think that the previous generations did a lot to build on that and they should be. You should be grateful for that. Officiating is the only thing it's not a true partner. There's still a hired gun and I feel like if we're going to over Review all the things that officiating. Let's bring him in his partners truly full-time let them beep officiator officials. The whole season have have the haven't off season training. Let's let's bring them up there on the field with US players on the Phil. What's up everybody being a partnership short of that? I think you know just having people were schoolteachers. There's an insurance salesman and like it doesn't think about. It doesn't make a lot of sense. Let's let's bring in fishy officials and be true partners. We'd like to do anything to make. I bet you're right about that. There's an expression over the weekend. I think it was coming from Troy Aikman. WHO said he thinks about the challenge of running a team James sometime down the road? Does that make sense to you. Do you have a similar sentiment and say you know what I like to give this a shot. Yeah Yeah Yeah I think if I wasn't raising kids and new felt like I had enough time. I think it'd be something I'd really like to do. But you know it takes takes all of you and I've seen what John Elway has done. I see now with John. Lynch is done. I think that I have a sense and I think a lot of players have a sense. Tim McDonald guys. That junk. Brent Jones guys that I knew like when we draft we bring in a draft class that we've seen them in what margin the first minicamp and all of us would look around like that guy's terrible. I took five minutes so so it's like we. I think we believe we know we're talking about when it comes to players and putting locker rooms together and putting players are going to get along and be efficient. Went and picking coaches. I think we all think we know what we're doing. And a couple of days of shown some success and so that leads us all to say. Yeah maybe we really do what we're talking have have you. Have you ever gone for an interview. Anybody ever asked you in I would I can I can. I can hardly do what I'm doing now. I just really I've just I told Oh myself I'm going to be completely focused on raising children and I really love that and I just You know I'm not retired. I'd have a lot to do but I think that It's just a you know it's like coaching you can't get into in the NFL. Coaching or anything else. Unless you're willing to put in one hundred hours a week it just has to be and that's why I think Eli. Manning would be a great it coach but I don't think he'll do it because it's just the time commence amazing thank you. Steve is always shave. Okay guys let's take a break still to come the eagles chances of winning the NFC. Just got off. I will tiger motivate team. USA to get back into the President's cup tonight down four one four one at the moment their down home delivery is big but it CBS health. We not only ship prescriptions to thousands of homeless daily.

This is the baseball tonight podcast for Monday, April purse, two thousand nineteen BUSTER only our producer most days almost every day is Josh macrey Josh in the name of April Fool's day. And I'm not gonna play an April Fool's day prank on you. But I think kind of along those lines. I gotta ask you after these first days of the two thousand nine thousand nine season. What's more likely near mind? The world champion Red Sox. Your world champion Red Sox a staffy array of seven thirty six in the same series. We'd seen two guys at four homers and four games that of course, nationally MVP Christian yelich, Paul Goldschmidt of the cardinals. And he think back to where we were like on February twentieth. And now. Just a little bit more than a month later MVP chance for Bryce Harper in Philadelphia in March. I think about that. I think that's the most likely just because it was never completely out of the question for him to come in the city on fire in the first series and have the entire city. Philadelphia fall in love with him. I'd say that's the most likely second most likely as two guys to MVP candidates hitting four home runs in this series. It's spectacular. Yes. Is it a once in a lifetime thing? No. The least likely has to be the struggles of the Red Sox starters. That's ridiculous. What you say? What did you say that we are? It was seven hundred something right? That's what you meant. No man, heaven thirty six getting lit up Alex Cora answering questions about the preparation in spring training. We'll get to that. We'll be hearing from Bryce Harper today and his extensive interview that he did with our Mathis curtian on Sunday at citizens Bank park. We've got a weekly cap talk and quizzed with Todd Radim. Freddy Freeman has some really interesting observations about young star Ronald Kuni junior. But let's get to some notes of the day. And the game of the day is enter Bogart's. The Red Sox is a contract extension are Jeff passan confirmed initially that they had an agreement, and according to Jeff the Red Sox tacking on six years one hundred twenty million dollars. This extension is a surprise. And we'll explain why some of the games on Sunday you member. I was absolutely talking all the time about Yankees Ebersol schedule. Yankees gets play. The Orioles so much six of their first nine games thirteen. I fifty well. You know what over the weekend? The Orioles did some damage. To to swing in a high fly ball left field. He got a lot of it back. It goes and policy. God read not Nunez, a three run home run in the first and the Orioles grab a three nothing lead. Jim hunter and one zero five point seven the fan. The ORs win the game seventy five just play that clip again because they want you to listen to the crowd in the background. I think you could paraphrase like a thought balloon and just put three letters in their w Tf. What do you think it's you to swing in a high fly ball in left field? They got a lot of it back. It goes and policy. God read not to noon news, a three. Oh, man. Yeah. The. We're losing the Orioles again. Anyway, you know, there's a lot of talking to York about that today. Chris back of the Padres was great in his major league debut on Sunday five innings one run seven strikeouts. Manny Machado pitch and again high game into seven one out pieces loaded Dyson set. First pitch Grandpa's fully hit shortstop Crawford. Charging in to second for one onto I not in time. But Chatto beats it out the hustled all the way to first base in the Padres. Take a two to one lead after ninety seven point three the fan. San Diego wins the game three to one the dodgers. It's so much damage over the weekend against the Diamondbacks. Staff including ex diamondback AJ Pollock second one out. Pollock frantic. Only this side war. Four. Bellinger. He will score and Arriva had third. Beijing. It wasn't hit real hard perfectly place. The dodgers have tied at seven. Charley Steiner AM five seventy LA sports. The dodgers win that game. Eight two seven the Phillies are the only undefeated team in baseball. They completed a sweep with help from. Yup. Bryce harper. Right field. It's our in fly home. Marquette will turn he'll watch. It's gone. That one a mile high to right field his hitter friendly ballpark, Bryce Harper. His second of the year second and has many days at its four one the legend. Boop shabby on ESPN radio with that call. Harper course had that four hundred sixty five foot shot on Saturday follows it up with that monster moonshot on Sunday, the Phillies win is mentioned. But the conversation after the game was about Reese Hoskins getting pitched inside. And then getting hit late in the game. It led to an injection of Atlanta pitcher and gate Kappler Phillies manager, he was angry. Really be awful involves go underneath Reese hostage chin. Really bugs me because it has injury last year. Well, certainly, you know, coming off the fact that he he got hit last year for sure. But more importantly, he's one of our leaders. He is in many ways, the heartbeat of our club. And it really bothers me when that happens. And I think this was a case of the Phillies manager protecting his player. It was so cold last night it probably wind chill factor in the mid thirties. Pitchers on both sides were struggling to command the ball. I don't think that the pitcher for the Braves throughout Amman purpose. I think this is game just letting Reese Hoskins. No, you're our guy. The day. Then a game of the day had to be the brewers cardinals. That series finales, Christian yelich, Paul Goldschmidt, putting on an absolute show yellow Chit home in each of the first three games, and he came to the plate in the bottom of the first inning and the pitch swinging. Three. Four Christian yelich. Four in a row that reference from Bob euchre? The fact that yelich homers in each of the brewers. I four games the call on six twenty WTMJ. Look Josh in the past. I've always deferred to you on the Bob euchre call you want to jump in here. It was Robert M F euchre. That's right BUSTER. Okay. Very nice. I mentioned Paul Goldschmidt had himself a nice weekend to three homers on Saturday. This is what he did on Sunday. Goldsmith does it again left center? Goldsmith number four, Paul Goldschmidt had punched out his first couple of eight B's got some fastballs up in the zone and just wasn't able to get to this time and Goldschmidt is not missing. Yeah. That was damaged Laughlin. Brad Thompson on the cardinals television network. The brewers are trailing bottom of the ninth inning. They had a couple of runners on base, Jordan Hicks. The cardinals. Closer hard throws in the game. Christian yelich at the plate to deliver. Here. It is. Yelling. The score the winning. He's. Growers beaten, Saint Louis. Do you believe that one? Oh. Have you ever heard? Bob euchre that excited. We've heard his calls for years. Just I I've never heard him that excited. What about you? It's close BUSTER. Yeah. But I I actually thought he was going to swear there at the end he goes holy. Great Paul Robert M F good job. He did a great job with that Christian yelich spoke with Fox Sports Wisconsin about the day. Chris. Pattern as much as you said. This is a new season a new team. Feeling like last year for you. He's got done early hidden. And we just did it at the whole game. How did that ninth-inning come together? Christian the pinch hits from Ben Campbell. And then low doing what he does in that infield single set aside decided up for you. Grit. Just get on this grist. I've talked to face and Benghazi. So that double and unloaded his thing. And we're put out historic surfer for you. Chris how much fun are you having at the start of the season and to take three out of the four. Here's. Here's here's force. You always want to get started on a good note. There are great team. We notice whole yours can be battle. And we did a great job. And I've got a question of history about Christian yelich. Let's get to it. Rejoice love. It's TIMMY tied. It this great game. Or what with tin kurkin on baseball tonight. And Tim coaching covers baseball for ESPN and constantly find myself asking this question, Tim, where the heck are you? Well, I'm in Atlanta. I did the game in Texas yesterday cubs. Rangers eleven to ten well over three hours. We barely made our flight, but we got out last night. And I got to my hotel room about two o'clock in the morning, but that's better than trying to travel at six in the morning on the day of game. So we'll tonight we'll do the Braves game against the cubs. And I'm very excited. Well, naturally, we always have our questions after the first days of the season. Yeah. That that is usually a question early in the year because you have very small sample size of results, and we'll start with this Christian yelich. He won the MVP last year. And this year is twenty seven years old and so far Tim four homers, six walks one strikeout. He's unbelievable gets the walk off game winning two run double on Sunday. And I found myself this morning asking this question is the Christian yelich trade? Does that have a chance to go down in history alongside Frank Robinson? And Lou Brock trades is one of the most one-sided deals in history. What do you think? Well, a little early for that. But it's ridiculous. How good he has been in you. You know BUSTER from CNN this spring. He barreled it so many times that Craig counsel would take him out after to advance this pre-trading game because you can't hit it any harder than he hit it his first to advance. And in order to keep that wonderful momentum going he would just say I'm going to give him these two at bats. He's gonna hit the ball as hard as any man alive for these two at bats. We're going to get him out. We'll play him again tomorrow. That's how good he has been this spring. Travis Shaw told me again this spring. I've never played with anyone that puts bat ball better than Christian yelich. And boy has he gotten off to an amazing start and what a deal this has been so far for the brewers yet. The deal went down. I heard from executives with other teams thought it was a bad deal for the Marlins at that time in a great deal for the brewers. And that was before that incredible second half year last year three sixty seven average four forty nine on base seven seven slugging percentage. Twenty five homers and sixty five games. He's off to this. Great start. What the heck happened in midseason with Christian yelich St. think. Well, I'm not sure because he started to hit the ball with tremendous power. And this is what we'd seen before from him. Buster can always put bat to ball. He can always hit a line drive somewhere. But now he starts to get ball up in the air, and he starts hitting new Opie s well over a thousand the second half of the season. And I think it's just a match ration- of a young hitter. And we've seen it a million times George Brett used to hit line drives the opposite field so to Raphael Palmeiro, and then well, that example, maybe then they started to change things started to pull the ball. And this is what Christian yelich started to do was hit it with a thority all over the field. And now, you simply cannot make a mistake with him. Otherwise, he's going to crush you somehow in his first year in the big leagues. Four homers and sixty two games than the next year two thousand fourteen nine homers, then he had seven homers in two thousand fifteen and I remember. We're having a conversation with them in two thousand and sixteen be in that spring training. And I said to him you know, what what a what she swing? I really think that if you ever got into a hitters park. You could be a guy who could hit fifteen home runs, and Tim, I swear to you. He looked at me and goes no way like he's perception of himself at that time was he was never going to be guy who could hit twenty homers. Now, he's hitting twenty homers and a half app. It's go ahead, as you know, BUSTER some radio guy in Miami said he would eat crow if Christian yelich ever hit twenty homers in a season. And then when he did actually hit twenty overs in the season, the talk shows eight accrue, like a real crow, and and yell and said, it was the most disgusting thing I've ever seen in my life. I told him you don't have to do this. But the guy did it anyway because nobody saw this coming with this kind of power. Now, we should be surprised by. Nothing that this guy does because the power has joined this perfect swing that he has right now. So Josh, Tim would not buy into my hyperbole comparing this to the Frank Robinson. Lou rides is one of the most one-sided deals in history. Would you agree with me or Tim, Tim? Yeah. You say Tim doesn't buy into your Berber league. Neither boobs. Neither does Carl. Neither does Keith. Neither did Dave. Neither Jess neither do I. See you guys are wrong. And when history shows that I'm right? I'll be able to say I was I I certainly would be the first to if I had predicted before the season Tim that the Orioles would take two or three from the Yankees in Yankee state 'cause I you know, you and I talked last week, and you hate the strength of schedule stuff. But you actually bought into the fact that you know, what the Yankees get to play. The Orioles a lot six of the first nine games thirteen to the first fifty. Yeah, they're going to kill the Orioles. The Orioles one two or three Tim explain that. I can't BUSTER which is why baseball is the best game. And always will be because it cannot be explained. It cannot be predicted this this makes me laugh out loud. That all of our game today is trying to predict a projection where this guy where this player where this team is going next when we have no idea what's going to happen today. That's the best part about it. I saw that orient. Lineup. I did opening day in New York. And I looked and I said how are they gonna win fifty games with this team? How can that happen? And then they beat the achey two out of three. This is this could not happen in basketball. There's simply no way that a bad team goes into Chicago Stadium. George during Jordan's prime and beats the bulls once once a bad team on the home court and Orioles came in and beat them two out of three. It was so amazing. But this is why baseball is so great. We're one weekend into this season, and our old friend, Alex Cora manager of the Red Sox already answering questions. Not only about the Red Sox staff, which has a an era of seven point three six starters at thirteen point two. He's also answering questions about the preparation because as you know, the Red Sox as they did in two thousand eighteen they pulled back the reigns. Aware of the pitchers workload Chris sale, David price. Others didn't get a lot of work in in spring training. Because. They're preparing for the long season. What do you make of the Red Sox? So for well, that's the first time since Alex Cora became the manager of the Red Sox that I saw him on truly on the defensive yesterday. And those comments about we'll just look how it worked last year. Nobody said anything about this last year. First off he's a hundred percent, right. But this is also the beauty of baseball's. The defending champs of given up eleven homers in their first four games like this. And there's no explanation for it. No explanation for Chris sale. Getting hit that hard. But I'm with Alex Cora on this. Stay the course, it's only four games. You can't worry too much about this early stuff. But it's the first time I've ever seen even a little bit of defensive nature from Alex Cora because of the beatings taken at his team's taken on this first road trip of the season, which is brutal in itself. They don't play a home game till April the ninth. Are you is curious about Chris tales next starred as I am. Yeah. Look BUSTER, they told us all spring, and I believe him this is one of my real failings as a reporter is they tell me he's completely healthy. But that did not look like Chris sale on opening day. That guy got pounded. And he's one of the great April pitchers you've ever seen. He comes out of the box flying every year and that did not happen. So you need to check. The velocity you need to check the production the next time out. And if you don't see it, maybe then you start to say, do we really have this right in spring training was he really completely healthy in that shoulder? Some Red Sox news that broken Sunday night Zander Bogart's, six years one hundred twenty million dollars in an extension on top of twelve million. This is a shocker to me because Andrew Bogart's is represented by agent, Scott bores and. Look, scott. We talked to in spring training about how it looked like Scott was going to have all the primary clients in free agency next. Fall Garrett Cole perhaps JD Martinez. It was an opt out Zander Bogart's because Scott, historically, as you know takes his clients into free agency. It doesn't always happen saw with Jared Weaver. I got to believe that this was perhaps a Jared Weaver situation. Where Scott's advice to Sander Bogart's, my guess is. I wasn't in the room. Was you know, what let's wait for free agencies. Inter Bogart's saying I'm happy I want the money and like a lot of players concerned about the uncertainty of free agency. What do you think? Right. And again, this is not the same. But it's a Stephen Strasburg situation. He wanted no part of free agency with the nationals. You went Scott and said, let's get this done. I want to stay here. And I don't want to go out there and be the center of attention in free agency. And this is before the free agent market. Completely changed. So I think we should get more and more used to this a young player saying give me the money. I'll take it BUSTER. It's a hundred and twenty million dollars. How could a young player not jump at that these days, especially with the way free agency is, but when it's a Scott client. It's it does raise eyebrows because that's not his MO. But maybe maybe that's changing. Now, I don't think Alex spirit ever problem with me relating this conversation. But he, of course, our friend from the Boston Globe. I asked him last week about some of the thinking behind the Red Sox decisions. And he said, he he his sense is that the Red Sox front office remembers clearly the inner chaos clubhouse chaos that ensued. After the John Lester negotiations didn't go well in the spring of two thousand fourteen and they wanted to bypass that. They want the players to know that they want to invest in some players at least with all these guys you are nearing free agency. So Chris sale get's a contract. Zander Bogart's gets gets a contract. And we'll see if somebody else along the way gets it. But at least the Red Sox players know the ownership is trying to keep this team together. Tim, I I saw an unbelievable scene over the weekend in Philadelphia. On Sunday night. You probably were on a plane, but in the ninth inning of the game on Sunday on March thirty first Phillies fans chanting MVP for Bryce Harper. What a guest. Well, look at lost in all the Bryce Harper three and a half months to sign three hundred and thirty million biggest contract ever. What's he doing? Is. He is a really good middle of the order hitter in the big leagues. And precisely what the Phillies need. He's also one of the great March April hitters we've ever seen. I think that's forty three homers now in his career March and April he crushes it early like Chris sale usually crushes it early. And it doesn't take much in Philadelphia to get people excited, but you add all those guys to that team. And then you add Bryce Harper. And then you go three and owned the first weekend. And is first Homer goes four hundred sixty five feet. This is no surprise to me that Philly fans are jacked about this. Because that's an all the time. I spent Clearwater. This ring BUSTER not one step. Could I take without somebody in the ballpark saying tell? Us. We're gonna get him today. Well, they got him. He's produced and this is what's happening. Well, they must have not have believe me because they had to ask you that question. I got that same question when I went through there. So they weren't satisfied with my answer and went to the one that Kim, I gotta tell you. I never would have guessed that one baseball player would have this sort of impact in on the box office the way that Bryce is maybe in the NBA where LeBron James or some superstar changes hands last year, the Phillies, drew two point two million fans just in talking with Billy's people over the weekend. And they had sellouts in each of the first games, including the brutal cold on Sunday night. They want might wind up drawing three and a half to three point six million people. That's unbelievable jump in one year. Basically around one player. What do you think? Well, he's got great charisma BUSTER, there's no way around that. I mean, you don't have to like him and I happen to like him. And I happened that. Inky is really good for the game that he has some character, and he has some competitiveness, and he has some look we're gonna win today. Kind of thing about him. But that that translates really well to Philadelphia tough place like that tough guy walks in and says follow me now trying to you know, he didn't say it. But said it before let's start printing World Series tickets World Series or bust. That's what the Phillies need, and they respond to someone a tough guy who's got character. And that's what Bryce Harper has. I feel like any high profile free agent in any sport. If they join a new team, she call Bryce Harper and say, hey, what did you do when you went to Philadelphia Tim because I've never seen a player work as hard as he has to ingratiate himself to fans. You know, the first day when he unanswered it not taking ROY Halliday's number thirty four the Philly fanatic, shoes the other day Instagram posts, saying he longs to party paraphrasing long's, the party like. Nick foles, like chase utley champions the bow that he takes now when he runs out to right field, man. He's working hard at connecting with the fans. Right. And BUSTER also lost a little bit. I know he didn't run hard to first base on every play with the nationals, and that's just unacceptable, but to not acknowledge how that guy shows up every day ready to tear your throat out. If you didn't wreck you being general you didn't recognize that in his six years of Washington, then you just weren't watching. This guy really wants to beat you on a daily basis, and it goes back to when he's in junior. College is a high school junior and people are screaming at him from the other team. And he said, I'll show you. That's what he does. Really? Well, and that's what he's doing to people right now. I'll show you. I was worth at three hundred and thirty million. All right. The cubs game that you saw on Sunday ended this way give. Listen. Droop. In the pitch and attended guard gets away couldn't winning. Henry who's walking up living the ten acre? How many infielders you have? You may peace inch for a while Pitt all that claiming and stroke bounces picks kits by contrast, and it's inevitable miracle. Comeback win for the Rachel's hall of Famer Eric new Dell with that call one of five point three the fan and Tim cook here it's one weekend at small sample size. But I felt like you Darvish small sample size on Saturday. That's a five alarm fire. If you're the Chicago Cubs to see him, go out in his first start in walk seven guys in tuned two-thirds innings. That's for me. What about for you? Those were too by the way, really encouraging wins for the Rangers to come back and win the way they did Saturday and Sunday, they were also two very discouraging losses for the cubs. I they walked twelve guys on Saturday and Darvish was he didn't miss by a mile on every pitch they squeezed a little bit. But seven walks in two and two thirds innings ten batters into the game before anyone put a ball in play that was really bad and for the series. The cubs walked twenty guys in three games yesterday. They blew a four run lead. And then they blew a three run lead. And ended up losing that game. I picked the cubs to win the division. I'm sticking with. I think they're going to the playoffs. But I must say three games in. I've looked at that team and said, oh, what is going on here? And so no doubt in that. Cub bullpen, but they're gonna have to start throw a few more strikes here if. This is going to start to go in the right direction. And it jumped out at me that catcher Wilson controllers pretty drek in talking about Darvish on Saturday talking about how motion he was during the course of the game you, and I've talked about in the past how he tends to be someone who puts pressure on himself and for Wilson controllers to say that out loud that feels like a situation where year two with Darvish on the cubs. They're like, okay, let's acknowledge obvious, and let's work on this. What do you think you talk about? You know, we're gonna watch Chris sales next start. How about you Darvish his next start? I mean, what do you think he's gonna do pressure wise on himself? And maybe maybe all that we heard about when the pressure gets really big. He's not as big as he should be all I think we're going to see is next start will be fascinating after one that you just look at shake your head and go my goodness. Is this actually going to happen with this guy? Well, we're going to watch that next one very closely. It was a great weekend for the San Diego Padres, Seattle mayor. Earners off to good start hitting a lot of home runs. I felt like Tim if any team really served notice besides the brewers, and we talked about the brewers and Christian yelich. I thought it was the Tampa Bay rays facing the Houston Astros one of the American League superpowers, and what was a really good series of pitching. I think the numbers were for the weekend series. The Astros pitchers combined for forty six strikeouts in three walks remarkable numbers. And yet the race took three out of four. I think that's the first sign. This is going to be pretty good team. Right. And let's not forget who they're playing the Houston Astros, and they handled that middle of the order beautifully. They held Alex bregman down. It's just another reminder that the rays know exactly what they're doing now with the whole opener thing. But this time, of course, they have three quality major league starters. And then they can fake it or open, it whatever you wanna call it for two games. And with the way that Kevin cash moves that lineup around. He's got so many different. Options that was really impressive. What the raise did the Astros after losing game. One to beat them three in a row and pitch that. Well, another reminder that they're right in the middle of that. While maybe even the division race in the American League east. And Lastly, I want to ask you about a strange situation, a strange response at all happened on Friday, the reported that is something that I had heard before in circles among executives that the team that is deemed most efficient or arbitration gets sort of plastic fake world. Wrestling federation belt in it's a toy belt pass from team to team as they go through the arbitration battles, which you know, and I know agents on the union side teams also prepare for starting back in August. Like, this is something it's important on both sides. So on major league baseball side. The teen does the best gets this belt will the story came out on Friday, and Tony Clark is head of the union. Put out a statement. And there are other players commenting on this too in his response. Tony said that the clubs make sport of trying to suppress salaries, and he feels that's a blatant lack of respect Tim when? I read this. I thought you know, yet teams are trying to repress salaries in agents in arbitration or trying to escalate salaries that's inherent in the process. And it seemed like a strange complaint to me and reminded me of a pitcher being upset with a batter flipping a bat. And I talked to agents talked to executives they thought it was kind of odd too. I thought the more important news of the day on Friday was the fact that for the second straight year salaries are going down, which is a for me a much bigger concern for the union. What you make of all that? Yeah. And the whole arbitration thing has really is really not a very a very good thing for baseball, as we know I covered this in the mid eighties for the first time and teams take tremendous pride in winning an arbitration battle. They and this is in the eighties. They used to take their best people say figure out how we're going to beat this guy. And it is a win-lose thing. Maybe. It shouldn't be. But this is how teams approach it. And it's never a healthy situation where they just tear into one of their own players and tell them how terrible he is. And the residue of that is something now where maybe they shouldn't give out a belt like that. But it's just trying to reward a team for saying you guys did a good job. Maybe not in repressing salaries. But in just presenting things the way, they should be presented, and I understand the union being upset about this. But this is the job the responsibility of the club to make sure that they run their business properly. And that's how they look at it the union, of course, doesn't look at it that way at all. Yeah. And we've established on the spot cast your lot nicer than I am look. I don't understand why the union is upset about this. I wrote an apiece on Sunday, you know, that when the owners had their butts kicked by gene Orson dont fear in the one thousand nine hundred five strike when they got the court cases decided. If origin fears shared a handshake or a high five or backflips or a bottle of champagne. Hey, that's the way it goes. Right. It's that's the nature of of labor relations each side is pushing and pulling and I can't get upset about either side doing something like being happy. And that's what I felt like that that statement the other day by Tony was like we don't like the way you're celebrating. And I heard from agents like who cares? What they do. Just win the next case, right? We ask our players to be wildly competitive every day and try to win all this is the front office in baseball being wildly competitive and trying to win. And you're right. Buster you should not are you in a player gets excited about something? And you shouldn't be shouldn't be offended when management gets excited about something or the union leaders, which you know, that they can when they win your arbitrating cases. Who cares Tim? Thanks for doing this. Enjoy your game tonight. Okay. Buster thank. Wchs. Before Sunday night. Baseball Mattis Gershon set out in the stands with Bryce Harper to talk to them about joining the Phillies give a lesson. Let's go back to the winter the decision that you made to sign here. And there was a lot written about the dinner. You had in Vegas with Phillies managing partner, John Middleton. His wife Li you and your wife Kayla. You guys had a lot of conversation. What were the one or two things that John said that clicked in your mind Phillies, the place? Yeah. A sit down John here. He is very very personal with everything he talked about. Here's very real with everything talked about, you know, I think it needed to be like that. I think needs to be very upfront. You know, it was a decision that he was gonna make for a long period of time and myself as well there needs to be trust on both sides. And we're able to you know, we were able to do that. I mean, we got along very, well we met back to back days while we're in Vegas and for dinner and for about a brunch before they came back, and it just felt right? Kayla where we'll sit down the next couple of days and really talk about it and think about it Sanford and came in after that, and then you know, LA came after that as well. But you know, every time we talked about failure. And even mentioned Philly was felt right? Philly fans will they'll put their arms around you. And love you when things are going good, and they're happy. But they'll let you know when they're unhappy. Have you considered the time thirteen years? It's inevitable will happen some point when that goes down. Yeah. I mean, I think that's why you know fans that love sports and love, you know, their teams in their city understand that they want the best product out there every single night that they can have, you know, they're coming out here and supporting us each and every night, and they deserve to get that. And you know, that just makes me wanna be the best player. I can't for this city be the best person for this city on the field and in the community. And you know, it's just it's like you said, it's it's kind of inedible in the next thirteen years. We're going to have some up and down season. It's just part of the game as part of the process. Hopefully, win we win more than we lose, of course. And if we can come together as a team and do that then this fan base, of course, is going to support us each and every single night. And you know, that's all we can ask for as we watch the suburban garden. I'm Kathleen Kennedy without stubbing it. He notice moves like social tool, it's inanimate and utterly without brain function. But despite that when it got known his how Iko not only saves people money, but also gives them access to licensed agents twenty four seven online and over the phone. It's clear to them. You should switch because. Yes. Switching to Geico is a no brainer on second thought. Maybe don't watch God knows to carefully people might talk. Todd Radim is he chief executive while weekly quiz easy, graphic artist. Who's working be seeing on ballfields all across America all around the world. And Todd before we get to our weekly quiz. You have lit American fire. Tremendous response to the first episode of cap talk the other day, and you did plan to talk about one particular team. I'll save that information for us. But then I from the ballpark. I have to say this correctly T mobile park in Seattle. I went and got three caps to them. Or for me? Mariners caps won the old throwback with a Trident of the Mariners. I put them on the in the dugout bench. In the visitor side in tweeted out a picture and ask which one did you would you prefer? That's the one. I got for Josh men. It was a lot of response and you call the inaudible on the conversation this week. Yeah. I mean, it's really very timely. So here we go. The Mariners tried. I mean, there are many things are they arming or they cheesy or they classic or are they dated? So let's throw it out. And see what we got. Yeah. I'll I'll go first here. I love them. I love them. I think honestly, I think they rival the m b baseball glove brewers logo as the coolest logo. Wow. In baseball history. The Expos logo in there as well. Todd. I know you're not a fan because it's upside down, and that goes against Greek mythology, but I think turning the tried and upside down to make an M, which of course means Mariners. I think it's incredibly creative incredibly cool in the color scheme is gorgeous. Yeah. I gotta jump in here. I don't know how I'm gonna do in this week's quiz, but it's already wind because I just heard the expert sort of scoffed at Josh about. Oh, wow. Wow. I interrupt person. I think it was the inference that I'm like, you know, all down with Greek mythology that this drives my my entire conversation here. But go on BUSTER. Well, no, that's what I was going to make the point. I was great for me to hear you laugh at joshes theory. You know, because you're the expert not Joshua. And I love the fact he sorted dismissed them. It'd be like be trying to talk hitting with JD Martinez. We'll have to come through the bad with the plane. Josh telling you, what's what's going on with the tried. And no, no, this is this is all a very personal thing. But but BUSTER, let's hear what you have to say. And then we can then we could beat on each other with this come up. Well, this is definitely one where I got to tell you that after tweeted out that picture of the three caps and asked which one that folks preferred some of the responses to me, we go back into my the fact that I'm colorblind 'cause people are like, well, I like that one. But I like it with Kiel Bill or one on the left, but I like it with the green or whatever color was, and I'm like, I have no idea what you're referring to like, I I don't even know what the colors are that on the apps that I put down so I couldn't in all seriousness going back to. The Griffey days. You couldn't tell the difference between the road cap and the home cap that one of them was navy and the other one was you can't tell the difference between navy and -til. Well, no, I can see that. There is a difference. But I just can't identify him in like someone my mind's I can say, oh, yes. The 'til would stand off much better against the the logo there. Now. I just my brain doesn't work like that. And so I I personally like the old where they have the Seattle Mariners in the circle tidy could probably describe it better than I can. I like that one of the three rather than the Trident. Well, let me jump in here and just say hearkening back to something we've discussed before he'll discussion I'm going to phone north west grand Pantani twenty nine. Thanks todd. We'll talk to you next week or a gusting. Well. Let let's like let's keep an Arlene over here. So the Trident I, you know, I was I think there's like this of comparison as far as I'm concerned, and you know, my feelings about the original Blue Jays, look they came in at the same time. And I've had this thing for decades and decades, and it's just it's not as good now having said that the whole Greek mythology thing aside, you know, I think there's definitely charm to it. It was really in use for such a short period of time for some very unsuccessful early expansion. Mariners teams. I mean, you know, we can we can look at who wore this particular cap. And you know, it ain't Ken Griffey junior is all I'm going to say so. Yeah. But but Josh to two and this. We can move BUSTER away from this part of the conversation, the colors were awesome that really blew and very vivid yellow gold, really, vibrant, especially for a team that played under that concrete dome. So, you know, I'm not totally totally down on the tried it. But but I do think that again there's comparison to be made here. The the Trident was then squeezed into a star following the one thousand nine hundred seventy nine all star games played in the king dome. And then they go to this sort of nebulous generic vanilla s with a with a drop shadow. And then we arrive at the compass rose the spirit handsome. Kind of timeless successful thing. So, you know, I'm not totally down with or on the Trident. And and but all I'm going to say, it's just, you know, don't don't tempt to the gods inside. And and all that stuff. Well, maybe that's why they are so unsuccessful we're in that cap L paraphrase, everything they would just said Todd agrees with me the expert agrees with me. Josh, you're wrong ridiculous. Both ridiculous. Well, it should soon. The Trident hat will be in your possession. Josh, thankfully for me. Because I don't want it in my house. All right. Let's get to this week's quiz, or I guess here we go. So Josh has taken the lead one nothing just saying over here. It's an early and there's a long way to go. But here's this week's question. Which one of these hall of famers, never never wore the name of his team's home location on the front of his jersey at any point during his career city. Your state, no trickery, never wore the home location. Wasn't a Dave Winfield. Be robin. Yount see Hank Aaron or D critic Bijou one of these men never wore the name of his home city or state. Wow. Winfield yount Aaron Bijou now. And in my still going I under the old rules. Yes. We stick with those. Yes. Okay. In the interest of time. I'm going to streamline it. I could sit here, and mole, and mole and mole and talk over. But I'm gonna say it's Craig busy. Oh. Man. Yeah. I have I have it down to two Winfield yount Aaron BG. Oh. Boy, sorry. I'm dragging this out. I'd like it. Yeah. Now, he's taken them at times. I gonna take and taught I appeal for we need some parliament Ray area. And yes, some some Brexit or something. Yeah. Exactly. I'm going to say the gentleman yield is time and give it back water or Robin yount. Well, you're both wrong because it was Hank. Aaron dang it. Oh that was my second choice. Oh, yes. Hank Aaron both breathes and brewers just Braves and brewers never Milwaukee Atlanta. So. Trench warfare begins, the tragic invest gust, and we moved forward, man. Oh, that's awesome. What a great quiz top. Thanks for doing this. And thanks for adjusting on the fly. They talk about the Trident. We'll keep discover station going guys. Thanks a lot. So before every Sunday night baseball game. I talked to a lot of players and try to get some background collect some thoughts and observations from various players, and I asked Freddie, Freeman about Ronald kunia junior. And I tell you what what he said surprise me how you hitter rise since the beginning of last year. He's taken walks. That's that's the biggest thing. He wants to hit the swing is still wants to do that. I think it's gets a little upset when he walks but won t learn take his walks in the second half. He became a whole different player. Opening. They took two walks. Got a pitch the hit me. That's gonna make them in the mitroff level in my opinion. You said I remember talking to you once about that. I want to say like four years ago. I was like what turnaround you see stops pitch zone. That's the whole key telling them that. A little bit. They're not gonna give in. They're not gonna give them this in the big leagues. They're going to him being twenty one years old. They're going to see if he's going to chase. See if he gets frustrated, I still get frustrated. Believe me I do. I wanna hit two. But when you find yourself sort of swinging when you've got a real back in and if he's taking walks really on like he did day. It's leaking to see Ronald kunia income players. When did you start to see that change? After after he came back from his injury. Here's a little different player. Especially in the second half the season. Once he started taking walks really didn't know what to do anymore because they were getting he's getting into. Here's counts every single a bad. It seemed like and he started making him pay. And that's great do. Do. Day that I that forty five thousand he doesn't take the fat off his shoulders draws that wall had fallen behind to is that just kind of a sign that his. I'm sure it's I don't know what is ceiling is. You know, it's every single day does something as well. As you. To be twenty one years old, and I day to go out there and your first they'd be promise you I've been swing. I say. So. Even in spring training. He was taking you thinking a lot more pitchers in spring training. I don't know if he's trying to set hitters set up for the season. But a lot more than I was accustomed to seeing. And if he starts if he's doing that, I don't know where you can go as a pitcher. I don't really see you need bowls. Doesn't matter. If you forward he's still gonna get you basically Thursday was off curveball. It doesn't matter. What you throw. He's ready to hit. He's certainly layoff tough pitches. It's going to be a problem. We heard Gade Kappler furious about retail skins getting hit by a pitch on Sunday night. Well before that game gave us a little calmer. When he talked our boop shabby here were the skipper of the Philadelphia Phillies game Kappler year two for you. And you got a bunch of new faces. And obviously the guy in right field is the biggest name in the newest face, Bryce Harper. And there's a buzz isn't there you were just talking with some of the assembled media about opening day everybody's excited, and then there's usually a little bit of a lull, but we're here for Sunday night baseball and we were yesterday, and there's still a buzz. Yeah. The buzz is like it's opening day tonight. And that's unheard of the interesting thing about opening day is we came in to die game feeling like we had one five or six straight. Right. That was the buzz in the building. Like we had already. We already had some wins under our belt. That's how the fans were reacting. And now we do actually actually have a couple of win of wins under about it still feels like opening data's still preparing the same way still the same level of excitement. And you know, we got a lot of work to do. But. Doesn't mean that. We can't celebrate the good moments that have happened. So far, what do you like about this team? When you when you look at this team on paper, and you say man over one sixty two this is what will be really good at. I love the fact that our our clubhouse is filled with leaders. So I think last year one of our young leaders Reese Hoskins was it was in a tough spot. He had less than a year of service time, and he was the biggest voice in the clubhouse on the position players side. And now we've added some people around him to help support that incredible voice. It's Andrew mccutchen. It's JT rail mood though, it's Bryce Harper. It's still Jerry Jake Arrieta. It's an Aaron Nola who feels even more compelled to speak his mind. And now, we have a collection of leaders. There are more. I mean, I think that that Caesar Hernandez has leadership characteristics. Hector Narus spoke on our opening night in spring training and delivered some really powerful. Words. So we have a lot of guys who are pulling the rope in the same direction. If there's anything that stands out to me. It's leadership. Would you learn from last year we were just talking off the air about maximizing a lineup as opposed to or I should say maybe including or contemplating player comfort. Yeah. So last year, I really utilized information. I was really interested in in utilizing information and sometimes a stoic way in an unemotional way this year. I think I've recognized how important it is to put players in their most comfortable positions because that comfort could lead to confidence. And one thing we know is that confident baseball players are good baseball player. So although we are still going to try to get tactical advantage where we can not at the expense of stripping away comfort for players. Good to see you. Thanks for the time. Thanks, boo. Pre shit it bleach. Your tweets some really interesting Bleacher tweeds BUSTER and some new blood some new people getting involved, which is always good to see we got this one from Harry loves sports at not. Camera. One Harry says which is more likely to happen Craig kimbrel signing a one year deal with a contender or signing a long term deal with a hopeful team that has a bright future, and I checked on this on Sunday. And what I'm told is he still looking for a long term deal. Okay. Do you think it will be with the team that has playoff aspirations this year? I it's a work in progress. But right now, he's still sticking to that request for long-term deal. Fair. Enough quest is next at quest. Cold tribe BUSTER with the new trade deadline will we see early season trades where we hadn't previously. Yeah. And the first person actually heard mentioned that was Ravitch on this podcast when he talked about sort of pre deadline trades where teams that feel like, you know, what we're going to be on the fence at the end of July. Let's boost the team up here for the next five weeks if we can make some inroads in the standings of we can't we don't players at the end of July. I do think there's gonna be some of that. I followed up his comment talk to executives with teams. And they thought that that's certainly a possibility you'll see that diamond dasher next up at diamond dasher one guys if Bryce Harper could take a sub five hundred Phillies team from a year ago and lead them into the postseason deep into the postseason in two thousand nine thousand nine would it be the biggest impact in recent memory? Boy, I tell you what when the Diamondbacks. Go Randy Johnson. And Curt Schilling. Yeah. How's that going out the CC's about the assigning where the Yankees win the World Series? The first year marked Shera there have been guys who've had a bigger as big an impact that is your describing. I think in the past on the field. Josh I've never seen one baseball player. Make as much of an impact in terms of the interest in the team is there isn't Bryce Harper. When it's true. It's true. And I forget who tweeted out the photo might have even been Todd. But like the Phillies team store like all they have is Harper jerseys. I mean, it's incredible. Well, he's he's not even the the only the only good player on the team. They they have some dudes and you go to their team store in pretty much all you can buy a number three jersey. It's it's unbelievable. Rebel sports at rebel sports. One wants to know is it an overreaction to say the cubs need to start panicking with their pitching issues just three games into the season. Or is this valid concern. Despite how early into the year we are. It's a valid concern with your Darvish, and I don't think there's any getting around that we talked about it on sportscenter on Sunday morning. He's in year two a six year one hundred twenty six million dollar deal. The cubs farm system is down in part because of the trades. They made is they won the World Series in two thousand sixteen. And have made the playoffs in recent seasons. So they don't have a lot of resources right now to improve this pitching. They need you Darvish to to contribute. And Josh that first outing. Wow, I seven walks into into thirds. It is a concern. I agree with Tim. You know, those are the two most watched starters this week are Chris sale, and you Darvish what do you think? No question about it. Yeah. And I think both are concerning. And if they come out that you mentioned this with him if they both come out for their second start and log a similarly unsettling performance, man, you gotta wonder what's going on a couple more here. Let's get to this one from Duval at Duval county buck which is a more surprising start to the season. The success of the Blue Jays rotation. The Orioles taking the series in Yankee Stadium or the Mariners. Finding many ways to win getting off to a great start. Yeah. We've established I never say anything. Nice about the Mariners. You know? I'm just kidding. Because they disappointed me so many times passing predictions. It's pretty cool to see their offense. Like they're gonna get in talking with those guys last week. There was a lot of confidence in Tim Beckham. Dee Gordon that that team is going to head. We'll see how that goes. I can't say anything other than the Yankees take the series and Yankees. I mean, the Orioles series and Yankee Stadium two out of three from the Yankees won baseball superpowers from a team that won forty seven games last year. That was a shocker to me. What about you big time? It's definitely that. Especially since we were talking all spring about. Hey, the Yankees and their schedule and how it lines up for them to get off to a hot start. This is certainly not what they had in mind in. Finally, we got this one from Nathan Nathan is at G nilly ninety seven BUSTER who would you say was the MVP of opening weekend. Harper yelich, Goldschmidt, or Bellinger, and Nathan you inspired me to send out a poll question on Twitter. And as I wrote to borrow from our friends Golic and wingo who won major league baseball first weekend. And. I put those four names out there, yell at Goldschmidt Bellinger Harper and a runaway winner and in less than two hours. We got almost twenty thousand votes runaway winner Christian yell at sixty four percent, Bryce Harper. Seventeen percent. Goldschmidt fourteen percent Bellinger five percent. I'd say that's about right? Don't you think? Josh. I think so. Yeah. And I'm glad to see that. It was so overwhelming because I agree that it is yellow she got my vote and to see that myself and sixty four percent of the voters agree makes me feel good. Well, you are right. Italy are you and Tim or wrong? And when I I mean, I'm sorry. The end of the year, you're gonna go, you know, that yelich trade that's one of the better trades in history. Forgets rock move over. Lou brock. Here's a Christian yelich. Absolutely. Hey, great. Great Bleacher tweets today. Great to see some new blood in the Bleacher tweet segment. Why don't you get involved? Just make sure you use the hashtag Bleacher tweets, that's it for today. And I got a long list of people to think Bryce Harper Mattie v. Freddy Freeman Tim Kirch in gate Kappler Todd rate and Beauchamp. Josh forget, anybody me. Oh, yeah. Thanks to you. We're going to everybody. Thanks for listening for listening to the baseball tonight podcast if you're playing fantasy baseball don't forget to listen to the fantasy, focus podcast checkout.

Do the talking for him. Always in the gym always running drills. We'll new where there was a will. There was a way and he wants will. But then after a second child was born he realized the pros were all way better than him. So we'll gave up and buried his high tops in a tearful ceremony.

And we're also underway in the major league baseball league championship series as we'll get back to college football, go back onto the radar here in just a few minutes reminder would just had Chris Pollica on the bear with his three college games and NFL game. I tweeted out his picks. You can find those ADS SPN Dari always at one eight hundred flowers dot com. Twitter feed. We're always presented by progressive insurance by the way and don't forget. We're going to start getting out to some of these games. A site to these games will visit with Joel Anderson ESPN he's at Michigan and Wisconsin in Ann Arbor ianfitzsimmonsespn of Freddie and Fitz Simons covering Georgia LSU. We'll get into that game with him as well. As we cruise along here on this particular radio program. Now to baseball, four teams left Milwaukee with a win over Los Angeles last night game. One of the NFC s. But of the four games, of course, Red Sox and Astros fire up their ale CS a little bit later tonight. Who are the most exciting players the most must watch players still alive in these playoffs? Eight is. Hot. You see jumpy a little there. Mike, you see little eager little over zealous on the button. It's all good. All right. Here we go. Most must watch players remaining in these playoffs Mel man. Let's go three, two one. Hoosier number three. I'm gonna go with three Jose altuve and I look at the Houston Astros Doria and Springer Carreira Alex bregman. He was the most impressive hitter this season for the Houston Astros, but when you look it out to about Nick noca-. Okay, Nick, all the kids at home don't have great measurable. Okay. And tells you, Nick, what tells you, Nick is short me. Don't have great measurable. That's not good. Doesn't have great, measurable Baker Mayfield than have great measurable. But yeah, you look at a guy can one day become a major league player. You'll back to Freddie pot tech. All the great players from past years. Jose altuve as one of my favorite players will watch in baseball. I think we had a hot list earlier in the year about their favourite guys and Jose altuve output, any list, and there's others the Astros you could've put, but I'll go out to at number three. All right. Number three, most must watch player in the playoffs still to use to my number three contributed big time last night for the dodgers just wasn't enough, but it's Manny Machado. You know, obviously the the act was midseason acquisition is this just a short term loner for the dodgers many, many things. So he's a free agent at the end of the year. He could very well be somewhere else, but he's got to make the impression now he's, this is why they got him for series like this for a World Series run a World Series. They haven't won in thirty years. You know, we had a home run in the brave series Homer last night to lead off the. Second against Milwaukee almost brought LA back. And then I think it's Milwaukee, but to me given the fact that we don't know how long he's going to be in dodger blue, but he's such a key in that lineup and in the field to, but in that lineup, Manny Machado, the most third most much watch must watch player still in these playoffs. I can't go there for form. No, I know is a heck of a player baby a Yankee pinstripes. You know, Harper may be wearing the Philadelphia Phillies uniform next year. Let's interesting where the stars end up, but no question Machado last night. Come through in the clutch for the dodger. How about your number two most must watch. I got them the two guys. I debated. I'm gonna go at two Christian yelich and Stanton trade through the most attention. Okay. STAN going to the Yankees, but this trade the Marlins. Okay. Sending yell which to the Milwaukee Brewers kind of made that this team helped to make them what they are. He's been exactly what the Milwaukee Brewers needed. Dr. A lot of different ways may let them in batting average at three twenty six home runs with thirty six. RBI's one hundred ten on base percentage during the regular season. There are three games away the Bill walkie brewers are for making it to the World Series. He's a pure hitter is all around the -bility which you have to appreciate the more you watch and play. I'll go Christian yelich at number two Milwaukee Brewers. Yeah, he, he was up there on my list to. I didn't go with them. I'll go with the brewers to though a brewer on the mound. And we saw him last night. This is a to strike strikeout and inning guy with electric stuff. And it's the reliever, Josh hater. This kid is do come kid because he is young. But this guy is hard to take your eyes off of when he's on the mound. The lefty, the three quarter delivery, the wild wacky motion the hair flowing a strikeout machine. There is no more exciting pitcher to watch in baseball than him. You know any and the dodgers couldn't touch them last night. And eventually they got to the bullpen late and it's a great bullpen. Milwaukee has, but. Boil boy, is he something to watch when he's pitching Josh hater my number two most must watch player still alive in baseball right now. Yeah, it's a good call. Dr out almost went with Chris sale because what he did even relief the other day and what he can do is lights out pitcher in that kind of Randy Johnson mold. You'll get what he is right now unhittable basically and as been phenomenal and some others, you can go with as well from the pitching standpoint, but I'm gonna go to position player Dari number one, God. It's been a favorite of mine. Favorite of everybody is one of the best in baseball. Now you could've gone JD. Martinez let the semen home runs with forty. Three with Rb is one hundred thirty. Martinez did the regular season, but I'm gonna go Mookie Betts, and I don't know how you put Mookie Betts in the top group. I put him at number one excels in the field excels at the plate. During the regular season led the Red Sox and batting average on base percentage slugging percentage stolen bases, and it gets done. Job done as well. As I said with the gloved art knows complete players if not the most complete player in the game Mookie Betts, Boston, Red Sox. My number one most exciting player to watch and we agree that one and that one was, I mean, you look at what he's to thirty thirty guy. This season led the league in hitting three forty, six highlight reel plays all over the outfield electric personality, electric player. Mookie Betts, you and I agree most must watch player remaining in the major league baseball playoffs. So you go bats yelich altuve ago, bets, hater, and Machado. Well, it was big last night from a walkie and let me let me throw this out. I did this on Twitter yesterday, but I wanna give some major props. I always love it. You know, me, man, I'm, I'm in. I'm in, okay, right. I'm I'm kind of a small market person. I, I like win small, small ish markets get to shine on a national stage. They may not always have, and you've got loyal fans that that really show out all season just not. Everybody always gets to see it. Well, we are seeing and I think it's awesome from the brewer fan base in this postseason and last night in game. One is awesome. Nobody watches the brewers in the regular season outside of Wisconsin. That's just the way it is. That's not a primetime team or a primetime market because it's Milwaukee. And I don't mean that as a shot it is. It just is what it is, but now they have a chance to shine and the fan base is phenomenal. What a loud. Wow, the environment they provide their brewers and good for them. I'm glad they get to shine and props to Milwaukee and Miller park, and the brewer fans who are getting to enjoy one heck of a ride, and they make it to enjoy it for a few years. Yeah, they've at great rights before. Remember Paul Molitor and Robin yount and and all those great teams that they had the great years they had then and they have it again. And when you have the cornerstones of your franchise said, it was almost I won't say, gift wrap Dari, but the Christian yelich trade. When you talk about a guy that you deal, it was pretty close man at the Geneva, yellowish. I mean to me, you know, you pick up a guy like that that kind of it gets you where you wanna go, and that's what he's basically done. Help this team assisted this Milwaukee Brewers team. And as I said, being three games away from getting to the World Series, hey, there are two guys that have seven year that I can off top of my head that have seven year forty, nine million dollar contracts, Christian yelich and Gus malzahn which one you like and more about. Hey, where are you going to easily Clayton Kershaw on this list for reasons you don't know what you're going to get from this time writing though. It's a, I suppose it is exciting by the way yellow. That was the deal in late January. He's in this was year four of a seven year forty, nine million dollar deal that Miami decided wasn't worth hanging onto what did steal for and the brewers, right? Early same day, who do they get off the for in the free agent market that same day Milwaukee got yelich and Lorenzo Cain to get what a day that was for them, and they're hitting one two. And that order right now just lighten it up. Frankly, that was our hot list after a hundred years making shaving cream Barbara Sol's finally making razors that was a no brainer. Try the barbasol ultra six plus six within blades. They've now at Barbara salt dot com. Barbasol of course. Presenting our hot list on Dorian Mel ESPN radio and the ESPN app. Meanwhile, we move along back to college football, straight ahead more the under the radar games, including a team that I put in the college football playoff when the year was over or before the year started, I should say and a team not a power five team that sitting in the top ten with what many people feel as a really stiff road test that's included are under the radar games from around college football in this week number seven. Dorian male, ESPN radio, and the ESPN app took -nology truth brought to you by code. Truth, teenagers can communicate entirely emojis. How why? Birthday party pizza slice kitten, soccer ball, pineapple truth. It's so easy to switch him. Save on car insurance at geiko dot com. What are you talking about? Paper clips, shoulder, shrug, high, five wizard hat what gogo fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. This is a different feeling. Notre Dame people with very clear path to the playoffs. Where. Oh, yeah. From his own ends hands to Williams world across the twenty two. Me by the way terror. Dame's got some star hall right now textile UCS, ninety seven yards a championship caliber defense NFL polity, defensive lineman. This has got a different kind of talent and a different kind of Mojo in confidence. Notre Dame. One of those boy, there may not be a path to a playoff that is better carved out than there's right now. They've taken care of the business they've needed to take care of now the schedule shakes out what should be beautifully for the Irish Dory, and Mel ESPN radio and the ESPN app always great to have you along with us as we just gave you. Our hot list of the most must watch player still in the major league baseball postseason. Now we dive back into college football. We'll also get out to Ann Arbor here shortly. Joel Anderson of ESPN is covering Wisconsin, Michigan. That's one of the big time games. We'll dive into here again fifteen minutes from now, but we hit some key under the radar games that includes those fighting Irish. Number five, Notre Dame versus Pittsburgh Mel, your Irish are going to be favored in every game from here on out, they've passed the test. They need to pass the schedule. Now shakes out really well. I know they gotta deal with that game at USC to end the season, but you wouldn't think this one against Pittsburgh would be a test the way the Notre Dame offense with the book is kind of humming. Would you that three-touchdown favourite now? And I think you look at where Notre Dame is right now, and everybody mentioned the star power. The game that they survived are in. If you look back on this sees it wasn't Michigan, Michigan, not the same team. They were then either is Notre Dame. Notre Dame's much different team, much better team. It wasn't that king no came. It was that they survived Vanderbilt, okay, you watch game fan, Bill, scared daylights out of me and Notre Dame fans. And Notre Dame then or Bill could have won that game a two touchdown underdog. Okay. Survive what's Vanderbilt on since that game. Absolutely. Nothing. All out there at south Ben, and you can get it done and no-brainer built really a whistle to since then and Notre Dame has benefited from that kind of catapulted them to where they are right now. There's no margin for lose one of these remaining regular season games and you are done. Okay. So you got gotta win every game. You have no championship game conference ship gain to worry about so big adventure. And if you look at the key guys guys weren't even playing back early on one one in book, quarterbacks text waves coming back from the injury, how he's upgraded. Now, Pittsburg can't stop. The run. Extra Williams should be running while miles boykin seems to be on the same page. Nice report there with Ian book receiver. They got it all going. Unfortunately, Alex bars the guard out for the year injured, but they've been able to keep their restores healthy, particularly defense led by Gerry Tillery upfront, divine Coney drew tranquil in the second line of defense, and they have which the shutdown corner and Jolyon love the junior right now on the big board. Julian love this week debuted on the big board. It's number seven. He has been phenomenal as a key cover guy on the best in the nation and been guys locked down for them all year. He tackles, well, it's got to land long arms. He's a great player. They right now. They can keep those guys. I mentioned healthy after losing bars. They're guard. Then Notre Dame has a chance to finish undefeated. I will say this Goodwin for pit last week against Syracuse, two guys quadrille Lison Darren Hall both win for over one hundred yards on the ground, but not going to happen. And Dr you made my top five positional rankings for senior running back. There you go. All right. Number Penn State versus Michigan state, you know what this game is called l.. Dr. Yeah, here's half of my preseason college football, playoff right here. Penn State and Michigan state boy, Sparty beat up at home last week by northwestern. They cannot get any offense going Brian Lewinsky's. Not what he was a year ago. They're not running the ball. Well injuries play a part in that. Now they gotta go to Penn State whose last game was two weeks ago and a game that had to leave disgusting taste in their mouth blowing that to score lead against Ohio State in the last seven minutes of the game, this thing could get ugly. I think this could be one of those games where where Penn State makes a major statement because look the way they lost game against Ohio State if enough things about they're not out of it yet when it comes to the playoff, I think Michigan state's run into a potential disaster here today. Well, they are and there's that about it. And I think with Penn State having a couple of weeks to get ready there, then that lost Ohio State her James Franklin after the game, they wanted to clean a lot of things up. Sure things up and and now. Now you gotta Michigan state team coming to Happy Valley homecoming up at Happy Valley. You Brian Lou work the quarterback for Michigan state last year. Dr. He was sacked once every twenty three point. Two pass attempts this year has been sacked once every fifteen point, seven pass attempts, tack Levin times on the offense. They can't run the football there. One hundred twelve, average three, four carry terrible recipe going to Happy Valley from Michigan state this game. Penn State needs abouts back from that loss in a big way. Number ten, UCF at Memphis. This game is interesting. By the way, this one three thirty eastern on ABC or ESPN two depending on where you are UCS eighteen games in a row, Josh hypol- kind of Kip that nights machine moving. Now they go to Memphis. You know, Memphis, good. They got the former Arizona state quarterback Brady, white, fifteen. Touchdowns one pick. They've got the leading rusher in the country with Daryl Henderson. In terms of total yards. Nine hundred thirty four rushing yards. Twelve yards. A carry almost for this guy at UCF defense is going to get tested now and if they go to Memphis and they win this game by touchdown or two, I don't. I think it's gonna get overlooked, but it shouldn't be overlooked. Now. UCF is sitting in the top ten in the people. I don't know where they're going to be when the first college football playoff rankings come out in a few weeks if they still sit undefeated. But this is this is a test for the nights right now. Yeah, we are crystal fully come on earlier and talk about, hey Memphis as a shot to win this football game. And you look at UCF the key losses. They sustained Ari think about trae Kwan Smith Watterson huge game Monday night for the saints against the Redskins, right? He was catching ball, McKenzie, Milton list your Jordan and the NFL now was catching balls from Kenzi Milton well, they're not. They're MacKenzie. Milton's gone from sixty seven point. One percent completion percentage to fifty nine, six last two games completes the fifty three percent of his passes. Why? Because they don't have the key weapons for. Milton defensive chicane Griffin anymore. He's in the NFL and you got Darrow Henderson kid who has phenomenal Daryl Henderson. Now, only they should in rushing. You know what he's averaging per carry. Almost twelve, almost twelve care. Seven eight a carry, twelve, rushing. Touchdowns got a long, run a forty five or more yards in each of the last five games star. He breaks that long run. He's a threat in the passing game. He's averaged nineteen point, eight yards a catch with a couple touch Darrow Henderson right now. They what you look at. Underclassmen running backs right now. He is in that group. He's number three on my list behind Rodney Anderson's hurt for Oklahoma and mile Sanderson, they, you can make an argument right now. Daryl Henderson from Memphis playing. Good as any back in college football. Number nineteen Colorado at southern cow. Do we buy Colorado yet? Right? We said last week are undefeated record came against teams that were combined one and sixteen, then they beat three into Arizona state new. We buy them yet. This will be their first big test and it's not a great USC t Mel, but it's still a game Colorado could easily lose. Well sleeve, Montas I need. He can run around. He's athletic. He's big US's middle of the pack when it comes to pass the fence and all I have a big time pass rush. Then level ball hawk secondary. You're only have one interception Levinsky schnaut will be the best player on the field long says and terms of the offensive weapons at Colorado has story. But it is the first big test USC. So as good athletes on both sides of the ball. All right. Coming up should Michigan really be a double digit favourite against Wisconsin. We will ahead to an Arbor and discussed that big one in the big ten. It's ESPN radio, ish PM Michigan's probably thinking, yeah, we were about running the ball. We could his maybe some big plays against this wisco-. Secondary, Alex brick has to be able to take advantage if he's average this year, Wisconsin's enough to win the big ten west nest shape Patterson on the road with a Michigan offense, finding a true identity and getting better and better. Michigan and Wisconsin. In an Arbor. One of the biggest games of the day. I, I would say one of the three big big games along with George LSU and Washington, Oregon, Dory, Mel ESPN, radio, ESPN app, great to have you hanging out with us. We're always presented by progressive insurance and we know hit the shell Pennzoil performance line. Joel Anderson of ESPN dot com. In Ann Arbor getting ready for this one, Michigan, Wisconsin. And these are two teams. Joel, like personally, I can't quite figure out, you know, how does Wisconsin get pushed around by BYU and that's still the only game they've lost. They gave up five hundred yards of to Nebraska team. That's still a converts I win. That came last week, Michigan defensively, we know is really good, but where are they? Offense? Ity. What's the biggest mystery surrounding these teams to you in this game? Well, I mean, you go back to that. Wisconsin. Game on there was there was constant BYU and I, I'm sure maybe I'm being a little myopic here, but that is almost inexplicable result that college football. All this yet. Kansin coming into the seasonal stocks have been a national title contender for you to run the ball, being able to defend around and BYU had the way with them. I, it just doesn't make a lot of sense. So I think we really like, I think people have -cluded. Michigan is really good if you go back to their only loss. Like if you think about it in context. Now losing about touchdown to Notre Dame does not sound like a bad loss anymore. Especially consider that they were breaking shaped Patterson, but like Wisconsin is who they are, like, how they're going to hold up in doing. They played really poorly. I guess it seems that are not great. I mean, even play well against the brass, as you mentioned last week, I think we're gonna find out a lot about today. Joe, you look at that defense, Jim, Leonard defensive coordinator is a heck of a defensive mind, but the personnel there unfortunately and been what you would have thought it would be because of injuries are banged up on the defensive line. Coda Dixon on the back end banged up their defense right now. Eighty. Third per carry average allowed. They only right now generated as a team, five sacks. That's the recipe. Disaster against as Michigan. Offense has talent with Higdon coming on. Patterson throwing the football Joel hat is Wisconsin's defense allows badger team to hang in this football game. Limit big plays and hope that again to make mistakes, right. I mean, I, I'm up here in Michigan, the weather, the weather's earned a little bit yesterday. So it's raining cold outside. That's kind of kind of whether that you know is amenable to people that can create turnover. So you know if Wisconsin can like horse Michigan into playing, you know, playing along field having to make log drives, maybe they can slow them down. But I mean, then Wisconsin going to be missing their starting safety for the first half of their game. Nothing he was targeting call Nebraska. You're gonna miss the first half and then start defensive end they allowed built so they, they were already banged up to more started coming into this game. So I didn't really bode well, he SPN dot com. Joel Anderson in Ann Arbor. Joel appreciate your time. Thanks man. Hey, my pleasure. All right, so Wisconsin at Michigan, that's that's. We're gonna learn something about these teams, the losers done. There's no two loss team out of the big ten going to the playoffs so we can. We can. We can dispatch whoever does not win this game, and let's face it. Dr. If Michigan is a final four team, you got to win this game. You got to be doing this game decisively and you gotta show kind of flex your muscle. 'cause you gotta team this wounded right now, they're down. They got injuries on defense. They haven't been able to stop people on a consistent basis, their offense. If you can contain Jonathan Taylor and they should be able to are they allowed to six carry Michigan? Does the strengthen his team, their defence? Okay, and that's what they do. And then you put the ball on Alex Horne Brooks hands and say, hey, beat us with very average weapons, and he doesn't have the big arm. This is a game, Michigan should dominate if they don't. I'm say, dominate, I say, win the game by twenty four points. That's what I'm on. That should win the game thirty one seven thirty one ten and be done with it ended early and say, flex your. SEL show that you are really coming on as a team. They gotta get a run going, okay. They came back to beat northwest, bless. They were desperate there to come back. They put out all the stops, then they beat Maryland. Okay. You was concert who's wounded. You get Michigan state and it looks like down, then you gotta get going that momentum to get you ready for Penn State at the big house, November third, got Rutgers in the an Indiana should be able to score a lot, and you get ready for Ohio State. You kind of pace it through. You can own a role. You get that confidence indepence state at home, then you know, state that's Yankees, Red Sox. Anything happened, throw everything out there. That's one of the best rivalries in college football, and you see what happens. That's the way the season has to go. But I expect tonight a dominant performance on the Michigan wolverines anything. Sure that don't even talk about them as a final four. We're talking final four. We're talking playoff mill. Alabama, Georgia, Ohio State Clemson does are the clear cut for best teams right when you're watching Michigan oral or or Wisconsin. I matter you don't see anything close to that level. I know Michele house headed comeback to beat Penn State. They came back to win at Penn State. That's not an easy thing to do. And if we're sitting here nit picking Georgia for whatever, I haven't run the ball as well as it used to which machine that's what we're nit picking here. That's been a dominant team. Bam has been dominant Clemson with the exception of the Syracuse game, but there were mitigating circumstances there at quarterback. They've been dominant like Michigan's not in the same league. First of all, Wisconsin right now is not the same league as Michigan Michigan's not in the same league as the four best teams in college football, so, and they lost to Notre Dame. They better be dominant if they wanna make any sort of a playoff statement. They had better see show us aside, and we have not seen. Dorian Melbourne to you by Pennzoil synthetics, taking synthetic motor oil performance to a whole new level, make the switch to Pennzoil synthetics today, how much should Georgia fans be worried about this LSU game today? Yeah, it's Dari. We're talking about athletes on both sides of the ball. They have it. Okay. They got guys can fly Radic hydrates green Williams is going to be able to lock down against anybody and eliminate one receiver. Okay. So you say the on tours, are you think about where they are in terms of their football team? Cole, Hartman right now more so than God. When is the key guy. Right? So he degree Williams take him out of the game. Then God wants got step up which he's had an up and down year and had produced the kind of results expected. So that's what l. s. u. does she will do what you have to do in football. They'll take away your strength and four should be this with the other guys and the other guys for Georgia pretty good, and we thought God will be great. He hasn't been. So that's the game where somebody else, God one has to step up and play to the level we anticipate if he doesn't. LSU can hang Joe borough, hey, you know, we knew he was just manage. And then he threw a couple of picks, and we'll see what happens now, the confidences been affected will bit which borough and Georgia doesn't get much of a pass rush. Can they generate anything? But I wanna see borough. He hasn't had this story. He's he's had to low completion percentage, but no, no picks now he's had two picks. Okay. Now in his mind, there's gotta be some concerns from confidence standpoint when you let that ball go. So that's what I wanna see borough bouncing back after that effort. And again is Georgia final four team of Georgia's a final four team. This LSU team you should be able to beat and they're the favorite, their touchdown, favourite for a reason. Again, you're the point in the season where teams have to start showing that there when you look at them the optics or they final four team just watch the game. That's what the committees doing. They're watching these games. They want to go high state. They should win this game and it's Minnesota by fifty five issue. If they their defense has given up yards and points. That's Ohio state's defense right now without Nick Bosa does not. Like a final four defense at all. Agree, agree that started frankly, in week one didn't look like a final forty fence. Oregon state shouldn't score thirty one points against a house eight, and it's kinda continued from that point on, we talked about it. First of all, two loss team has never made the playoff Auburn would have been the first last year had they been able to to to win the SEC championship game against Georgia. They would have been the first they would have been in. But this year you're not gonna get a two loss team out of the big ten. So Wisconsin, Michigan elimination game. You're not gonna get one out of the pack, twelve Oregon, Washington, and Eugene elimination game. So if you're looking around, you're saying, oh, we don't have a massively important, you know. It's not Michigan, Ohio state or Alabama. Georgia type of game this week. You've got elimination games, and that's what this regular season is every week for notary nation in every do not slip up against Pittsburgh after passing the tech, the test in Blacksburg. So there's a lot of stuff to pay attention to. All right. I want this. I'm very interesting. As you mentioned this before the show you said there the four rookie NFL quarterbacks. And of course we're talking darnold Mayfield Alan and Rosen for their starting right before that are starting. You have come up with. Comparisons of baseball comp to a baseball player, baseball players that are no longer playing, correct. None of our plan right racking my brain trying to figure out who they could compare to, but you're going to tell us that's coming up and by the way, this Notre Dame team. The college football playoff selection committee. If you're not already thinking about what I'm going to throw out there, you need to be SPN radio, ESPN app. All right. You know what it's time for mailman it's time for straight. Talk brought to you by straight talk wireless, best phones, best networks, no contracts. You are making the point that there are the four rookie starting quarterbacks in the NFL remind you of baseball players from on as gone by. Mike Antoni you are producer is dying for this. I'm going to turn this into mel's gonna compare to things every week. Well, it is true. Mike, what they every time on doing something for sports, they always want calm, who's who is they'll be saying, all right, Herbert reminds you of, okay, who does Nick Bosa remind you that's just in Herbert was a car, what kind of car? That's the kind of thing. I go to baseball calms I did it because one jump one immediately was automatic. It was like that's a, that's everybody in the world should make this cop to this player from baseball stamp way. Okay. Well, this one looks reminds me and immediately four just Clint, and I said, okay, what do you think? Who do you wanna start with gimme one of the big four you want to start with him this four that are expected. The be family, go with them. I'm going to go with the least interesting in my mind. Ready. Okay. Josh Allen. All right. I'm gonna go. Who who walked on Fogarty there for you. The question exactly. What was the question with Josh Allen coming out? Had he played anybody? Know accuracy. Okay. Just completion. I've Senate was right around fifty, five fifty, six percent Mark and he does ask them, throws it. You say, Josh, Josh. How did that leave your hand and end up there? How did that happen? If you've got to be more consistent throwing the football in terms of accuracy, who was a pitcher that walked one hundred and fifty two in one year, one hundred and forty four. The next year I'm talking about the early nineties and then but it's got into the midnight only walk at sixty five year. Not one hundred fifty to sixty five. It was Randy Johnson. Randy Johnson. Josh Allen is in terms of baseball, Josh Allen, hey, we hope it goes on like Jim, Kelly buffalo to get that team Super Bowls. Well, hey, Randy Johnson after not being able to it wasn't nuclear louche okay. But he was a guy couldn't throw a strike a lot and walked a lot of guys, but he won twenty plus games. Three times he had a twenty four and five season two thousand to seventy one walks two, three, two. We are seventeen or more wins in ten seasons. Let's hope Josh Allen wins. Many games does what for the Buffalo Bills. What Randy Johnson after creator, start off with walk after walk after walk. We'll see Erin after Josh canny get it done. From an accuracy standpoint, we said the same thing about Randy Johnson throwing strike. So let's see if Josh l. ever blows up a bird with a football like Randy did with the baseball. All right. So Josh Allen is Randy Johnson. I like it. Let's go to. Let's go to Sam darnold. All right, Sam, darnold we're going to stay in the Big Apple right. Okay. Say Derrick jeeter and say, why? Derrick? Jeeter he went to work. He never made noise. You never heard a negative word about their jacomb themself in a professional manner on and off the field. Okay. Wasn't physically gifted like a rod, okay. But steady consistent produced in the postseason remains to be seen. Now Sam we'll do once you get to the postseason, but I thought Derek jeeter for what he did in the pinch with the New York Yankees. That's what Sam darnold will do with the New York Jets. Professional doesn't make noise just goes out and Doug job. He's not for New York, Sam darnold. Perfect. 'cause there's not going to be any crazy stuff happening away from football and off the field. Minka Kelly, anyone. All right. Next up, let's go. Let's go, Josh, Rosen next. All right. Wish Josh Rosen. One of the most intelligent cerebral quarterbacks to come into the NFL in years. The most ever. I mean, give me a hint on the baseball player. Well, this baseball player played down here in the land of pleasant living. He also played wore the pinstripes. You got me thick, thick. Think we're UCLA think Pac twelve. I'm thinking of a pitcher who won twenty games once in his career magazine, like you seen considering all neither. Mike Mussina went to Stanford. Okay. Went to Stanford, Josh Rosen, UCLA's considering what's intelligent quarterbacks that come in and said, who was the most NFL ready? Said it for months. It was Josh Rosen who outplayed Sam darnold across town rivalry. It was Josh Rosen who says he knows more than anybody even coordinators in the NFL. It's Josh Rosen, Mike sina coming out of Stanford exactly the same kind of cerebral pitcher to win twenty games once but had a heck of a career with both the Baltimore Orioles and the New York Yankees. I love this is if you're just joining us, you're like, what in the world is Mel talking about earlier today? He said that the four rookie quarterback and the NFL currently starting each have a d'appel gang or so to speak or. Remind him of a baseball player that's no longer still playing. Josh Allen is Randy Johnson. Sam darnold is Derek jeeter, Josh Rosen as Mike Messina. So who in the world is was the first one based. The immediately was automatic thick about Baker Mayfield. Think about a guy who goes out there and lays it all on a line. He'll die. Ps Charlie hustle, right? Pete Rose. I'm with you, rose. This state by the way, I mean much career. Yeah, automatic Cincinnati Reds, the big red machine, Pete Rose. Everybody wanna play the game, like Pete Rose played the game. Everybody wants to play football with the passion of Baker Mayfield. The only thing I was concerned about what Baker was, what off the field would he be professional? They're intangibles on the field on that Lennon the locker room, everything practicing phenomenal with Baker, conduct yourself in a professional manner. If he does that Baker Mayfield could be phenomenal as Pete Rose was all those years in major league baseball. I was the automatic. That was the first one came to mind. Kind of spring board went from Baker and Pete Rose to the other three. You know what you can do with Baker, you can. You can bet on Baker. Okay, that's bad. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. All right. So there you go. I like it Baker. That's what I was trying to figure out who in the world. Plus you get right away. And I said that once they get that it's going to, but it's horse. Talking about when he Tycom like how far back are you going. I didn't go back. I didn't go back to. No, no, no, no, no, no. I mean, the youngsters may not remember if you got the sixteen twenty five year olds may not remember some of this, but I think everybody remembers, you know, I would think everybody remembers three of these four. Maybe maybe everybody need rose play, highlights of Pete Rose. You know, everybody talks about the guy to play the game, the hardest got the most out of his ability and let's face it biker doesn't have the great, the great measurable, either intangibles, Pete Rose didn't have great natural ability, but he made the most of what he had. He was one of the greatest players of all time. So there you go. And so I thought that that was a good cop, the way they played the game, you look at Baker Baker refuses to lose okay, he's got. He just he. He tolerate losing. He's not gonna and Pete Rose. Never did. Pete Rose played the game hard from pitch one to the final out. And that's the way Baker plays football I want. Now I want I want these calms to today's players in baseball, right? Who's your Baker Mayfield altuve. Who you mentioned, how much she can you watch that everything. One show a chance winch. Ace. Got a ton to fair by one. This Mel man. All right. That's that's. Oh, I'm sorry about that. I just saw Mike that you want me to go in a different order. Sorry too bad. You just you guys just keep on playing John Fogarty's instrumental centerfield. We'll be right. It's all brought to you by straight talk straight, talk wireless nationwide coverage on America's largest and most dependable, four g. l. t. networks. I, if everybody agreed with my cops thought was way off base with my calms. These are good man. You're okay with them. Okay. With them. Disagreed with? No. How could I tell me. Tell me nuts like that was something passive aggressive. We're going to have to deal with this during the break now. Oh, great. Ianfitz him and straight ahead. Next, he's in Baton Rouge. Being radio.

Hour 3: Amin Elhassan

"The. So I want to get to something that Mike Ryan was talking about during the break up before I do that with got amino Hassett in here, the nets opened up to Mack's salary slots, that suggests that they know something, I'm gonna -ssume that they know something, you don't start trading pieces unless you feel like you've got confirmation. But before we get to that with amino Hacen front office insider, what were you telling me about McDonald's during the break, how much money McDonald's lost, when Kawai Leonard was traded to Toronto, thus sort of changing someone gets fired in a marketing meeting because they, they agreed to something at McDonald's, it cost. Mcdonald's millions and millions of dollars. Well, I don't know if anyone got fired, but this is actually a pretty interesting story in the sense that this McDonald's struck a deal with the raptors bef- twelve days before the quite Leonard trait that for the upcoming season for every game that they hit twelve or more. Three pointers. We're gonna give away free medium fries. Right. Which makes a lot of sense. Right. Because the raptors weren't a great report shooting team. You know, they started to get more to it last year in the last couple years, but for the most part, they weren't a high volume t point shooting team. Well, you're choir, quite Leonard. You're quite Danny green, guess what? There's a lot more twelve plus three point games in Toronto Raptors history. Right. And so they had budgeted for about seven hundred thousand orders of fries to be handed out during the season. Instead, it was two million that comes out about five point eight million dollars in French fries. That's a good amount of money, right there. But when do you ever go to McDonalds just for fries? Or I'm sure you're saying that. Hey look, I went in there got the fries or you know what? Let me get a Big Mac to let me do the mix here as well soda. My father would totally do that. My father show up at McDonalds just for the fries. Yes. Father or anything else. Nope. My father's shoes are bought in a supermarket for four ninety nine and he's now arguing with ESPN over money. Four dollars ninety nine cents. Eddie play. What were you saying, Mike about your take that has gone over very poorly on the internet? I had the very lukewarm take that people responding to Chernobyl and really well, and that it might be viewed as better than band of brothers. I love incidentally that Russia has now come forth and said, no, no, we'll give you our version of Scher noble. I'm sure that, that one's the accurate one. Have you read the details about the, the Russian Chernobyl? That's trying to get off the ground in which three American spies were to blame of course. No, that's going to be amazing that'll be a comedy that should win an Oscar is a comedy. Whatever Russia makes to combat share Noval because now tourism has gone up and journo because of what HBO did. Right. It was up forty percent and that was while the show was airing I imagine now because it's got actually pretty strong word of mouth, this show and really strong ratings. And I imagine as year goes by people will binge it and more and more, people will wanna visit Chernobyl. I don't have any desire to visit a place that according to show is going to be feeling the effects of radiation for generations for ten thousand years. They cleared out towns around it. Why would you wanna go there to get a magnet? What are you gonna get? I guarantee you. Nobody black is going for noble on vacation. Go cities, do seem to be a fascinating thing, though. Look, no one's actually lived here for several decades. And things are overgrown. And it makes for cool photos, Pompeii. Yes. People go. See Pompeii because it happened like. Thousands of years ago. This is what twenty thirty years ago was eighties. Yeah. Ladies, but it was a very lukewarm take I wasn't saying definitively for noble is better than band of brothers, even though you know what I believe it to be because her noble was only five episodes. And I on, like many of the people that are in my Menchu's, including one, Trey wingo, who went out of his way to DM me. Yeah. What? Yeah, I have actually rewatch band of brothers. I've seen that series three times. I love band of brothers. It was a star making vehicle. There's so many stars, you don't even know are in band of brothers when you watch it back, you're amazed. However, band of brothers is slow at times to noble, not slow in any of the parts and here's another take for you the Pacific an offshoot of band of brothers. Also brought to you by Tom Hanks, and semen Spielberg was the better World War, Two miniseries by HBO, the Pacific not band of brothers. Okay. So I want to know what is it? The Trey wingo felt could not be set to you publicly had. To be done within the confines of a direct message. He had to tell me that you're noble while great was no band of brothers to which I say, have you watched two brothers recently. I she you this challenge because it's slow at times, and that's okay. There seems to be something missing her. Why would he just reply the tweet? Why was that out? It was something that I said, because if I tweeted it out, this thing would have gone viral considering all the people that have watched band of brothers recently. And because he means business when you mean business you go to DM. That a fact. So help me understand how it is that the internet would get really mad at you for what you said, dared to say about a war movie. But Robin quivers could say what she's saying on with just horrible timing. It is the most fireable offense in the history of the stern show. And that saying some man, I was listening, what is he? What does he say? I was listening live. I listened to the Howard Stern show in years, and she was doing the news as she does. And it was d day and she was reading report. And she had the take of takes she was like arguing that the people that were in the boats about to storm, the beach weren't that brave because they had no choice in the matter, and that they were afraid and Howard try to help her immediately. I was like Robin. What are you doing if this were a more conventional show, or maybe on a more traditional medium, and not just on satellite radio? That what about a thing? Thank God, we helped her out by bringing light to look man, I didn't knock on her. That's all Dan. But it's gonna fall back on me. What do you mean narc on her? She's on very very listened to program. You knocked there's usually gives take that instant airy not like that. That was that did she not know that it was she was trying to, like, walk around, like it was like, bows, and into him like, don't do this just on principle, and also don't do this for your career and that show runs on a loop? So. Don't even think you're listening to alive because it was the news that usually in the eleven o'clock are there. No rules over there. Like they're not governed in any way by sort of. Are they working outside of the angry mob? Can they work outside of the angry, two thousand nineteen because they're on satellite radio? I think Howard is at a point in his career where if he were on more terrestrial radio. Now, if you're subscribing, siriusxm, I think there's vast majority people that subscribe to Sirius XM that don't have the free trial are subscribing, just for Howard Stern whereas before were he was the king of controversy in king of radio. A lot of people were listening to a much like us in Indianapolis that have no choice in the matter and just getting furious at this, if you're subscribing, Sirius XM and listening Howard, it's because you like Howard, nobody that he's alienating is still listening to what is happening in Indianapolis, because I've gotten unusual amount of hostility our show going into that market is going to be met with a whole lot of folks, this is the first time, it's not unlike Chernobyl, it's the first time that our strain of stupid is. Very different. But it's okay, it's our personal general. So we're sitting here going into Indianapolis and Indianapolis is reacting very poorly to the way that we do sports radio because they want, Dan dockage. Well that might explain a lot because that's one of our biggest rivals. Is it rivalry if you don't really acknowledge the person but they talk about you all the time. I guess I mean he's just shouting at cloud or trade show his way. And he says our way is the wrong way. But we've kind of moved across all of the people who used to do that to us. And we've the stugotz army has taken us across all of those body part of why we're over that is because the heat or no longer good. See, remember when the he were good we were picking fights everywhere. We were very emotional, and we were sensitive now we've got nothing. Yeah. Nothing whatsoever. Did you see what happened you guys? I heard you talking about in the local hour. So I'm sure you saw it. But I don't know if a means between the brewers and the Marlins where the brewers on their Twitter account or talking trash to the Marlins saying along the lines and we'll get you the direct quotes in a second. But hey, we've got yelich. What are you guys have and the Marlins responded with we scored sixteen runs again? Against you yesterday can yellow hit any home runs worth more than sixteen runs. The Marlins can't be talking trash to anybody and they like not, that's fair. Anybody stand when you beat someone sixteen zero that's the time when you talk to trash. Yeah. Especially when you're the Marlins stupor embarrassing for the brewers. One plus on the brewers were good. I mean, I know this year and last year, but in your, the brewers, lots of you wanna World Series. We have to in the last twenty something yet eighties. What is it? I guess the brewers were the eighties, right? Gorman Thomas googling, Bruce World Series Mike, that bang that team. Yes, thank you. Roy appreciate it. All right. So what happened was the Marlins traded Christian yelich to the brewers now. Christian yelich went on to win the National League MVP the players the Marlins got back from the brewers. Not exactly panning out right now hoop. So yesterday. Christianity, two run Homer against the Marlins and Bruce weeded. Hey at Marlins this home. Run just reminded us that we never said how much we appreciate you for bringing Christian yelich into our lives. Thanks for the NL MVP hashtag. This is my crew. And then they put the video of the home. Run to which the Marlins Twitter replied. Oh, nice. Let us know any hits a sixteen run home. Wow. You got to do it. Then you have to think about how many opportunities they have to talk trash not many, but they've got your cheap player locked up for years. And you've just got that eleven run fifth inning. Oh, but they shouldn't be shooting down. Such a bad look for the view for the brewers down there. The brewers I know they're good right now. But the brewers don't thinks of the brewers this great team adhere brewers loss of series, sued cardinals in nineteen eighty because they're losers. Wow. You weren't going after everybody. I mean, the beehive Harvey's wall banger fans it is crazy. You've lost your mind today. You're totally unhinged. Please go. Look at photographs of that brewers team. Chris, if you want to laugh at what people looked like back when they were winning the World Series in the eighties, that team just was fried grease, everybody smelled their beards and faces all of it smelled like just fried things you got. Voca vich. You got Gorman Thomas. You got you got that Robin yount and Paul Molitor, Molitor was he was cut. Yeah. And drill correction. They weren't winning World Series in the eighties because as we've covered they've one zero one zero they've only made one. I'm looking for stuff. I mean it's amazing. Go ahead. Just Google eighty two brewers guy. No. It's unbelievable. It's a bunch of people a bunch of people from the wilderness playing playing baseball stugatz here.

The new mystery. Crate is out. We don't wanna tell you too much about it, but it made me uncomfortable when after it happened. I came into the studio. And it looked like a bomb had gone off in the faces of Chris, ROY, Mike and Billy. I did not know what had happened and they just said, whoa. That was good radio and I just left confused because when they played it for me, I was made uncomfortable by what was happening without giving away too much. We the shipping container were part of this. We put two people in that Souto that hate each other publicly, privately their common bond is the disdain they have for each other. And if you're familiar with our show, you're familiar with these voices, I've said too much. Okay. So back to the shadows mystery crate is a mystery. We will get to a mean thought on what the nets are doing in a second because they've now they've got to max contracts now. But we've got a distinctly Miami story sort of breaking here involving Duke Johnson. Duke Johnson's representation. Let me give you a little of the history here, Luther Campbell created booty, music and Miami. Once upon a time we went a lot further back than I thought we were, we went really we went back, and he took his fight to the supreme court freedom of expression on Buddha music. It's one of the funniest things I've ever seen in the history of law. And so, but this was a person who is in was very Miami. For example, when showed night wanted to come to Miami snoop Dogg wanted to come to Miami. They had to ask his permission. So I give you all this context, only because his wife is a lot better than he is his wife. And he'll tell you this himself his wife. Will go after people in a way that is she's very professional. And now what's happened on Twitter is she's evidently, representing Duke Johnson? Oh, he Luther Campbell's wife is the Representative for Duke Johnson. And now they're taking out Baker Mayfield. This is stopped being polite. Duke Johnson was trying to keep it polite. This is ceased to be polite. Do Johnson seems very uncomfortable with all of this publicly, but he's getting the advice from his representation to take this public because that's the only possible way out of this situation in Cleveland. He says, look, I'm clearly not in the plans. I'm just here as a bridge to Kareem hunt. If you're going to trade me trade me at the beginning of this season, don't use my body, so wherever I go, I can have a better chance with a team. A lot of people can understand that, but not a lot of people know, nationally, what Dan just said, Kristen Campbell, Luther Campbell's wife is part of the team, that represents do Johnson, Luther Campbell always outspoken has taken to Twitter. I'm surprised this isn't a Nash. I story considering what I just told you this is the tweet from Luther Campbell husband of Duke Johnson's representation. Bleep Baker Mayfield. Ninety flat out said the F word folks. For saying that dumb bleep which is weird because he believed out the S word buddies full on said the F. It's kind of bizarre, but we rate them of expression went straight to the supreme court. One of the funniest things I've seen in the history of law. So he'd types out the f word at Baker Mayfield for saying, dumbly censors bleep about do Johnson. I guarantee you, you be the one that divided this lock room. You're not in Texas at Cracker Barrel. Whoa. Now is Luther doing that? I'm telling you, he's going to get reprimanded when he gets home if he's doing that on his own. He's been doing this for a couple of days, he's had other tweets about it. And he just said this most recently. Hey at Baker Mayfield. He's adding them. And you know, Baker Mayfield is seeing this because Baker Mayfield pays attention to social media. Hey at Baker Mayfield. This will be my last week to you but far traded Joe Montana, traded Peyton Manning traded drew Brees traded. That's not exactly true. Drew Brees on a free agent. But whatever Dan Marino, told the go home don't ever turn on your teammates for management, you are not exempt. That's actually a pretty pretty solid point right there. It is. We thought about on highly questionable, Dan. It's not that he's getting into the guy's pocket or whatever he siding with management over labor, and that never happens. It pro sports. I think what Mike Ryan was saying is right about Baker Mayfield that he's got some learning to do about the politics of the position. But he's been rewarded so much for being the way that he is that he didn't realize what he was stepping in there because that, that is the kind of stuff now it doesn't matter Mayfield might be better enough to eliminate it might be good enough that he can eliminate all of it because he's that kind of great. But that's the kind of stuff that makes you lose the guys in your own huddle when they see you do this to do John season unique situation. Because that's the only guy on that team really that would pull him aside and say, don't do that to do Johnson. He's bigger Mayfield in its second year is one of the veteran leaders on this, you know, wanna be seen as pro management when you're in that position, it's what? Tore apart, the Seahawks toward the Torah apart that Russell Wilson was the one who would seen as pro management and he's the one who got all the money and he's the only one still standing there to be their resolution wasn't technically pro management. Right. They just they thought he thought he was. He must've been if he was viewed that way. No, you think the whole locker rooms wrong about. I think they were mad that he got credit. And they're like the defense is what one not not his quarterback play in this case, he is very clearly pro management. He's vocally saying clearly, and I think that certainly the impression do Johnson's team gets. And maybe that's impressions at other players in the league. I know what's happening here. This is Baker keeping up for the guys that actually want to be there. He takes us against the world a little too seriously. And this is one of those times and many would argue, the Hugh Jackson thing is where maybe got away from him a little bit. There is one comp to this improv sports. This is Reggie Jackson was on. Okay. City thunder and he was going to be a free agent. So he said, look, Russell Westbrook's here. I'm never going to be the starting point guard. Trade me and Russell Westbrook. Basically commended the locker room to freeze him out. We don't talk to him. And when he was talking to the media, he would receive like re- refer to him very derisively say, you know, the guys who want to be here. They're here, the guys who don't need looks over. I Reggie Jackson. We don't care about them donlevatar. Chris, what was the funniest thing from the sports weekend. The last six quarterbacks for the Washington Redskins, all have four letters in their first name, Stu guts, hurt cousins, Alex Smith, Colt McCoy, Mark Sanchez Josh Johnson. And now case keenum, that's one of the least interesting things, I've ever heard VC's libertas show with stugatz on ESPN radio. ESPN radio is presented by progressive insurance. Guests on the Dan lebatardshow. Up here by the shell Pennzoil performance line. And now your sports update the called current wife of warriors owner, Joe lak- said, she's received death threats on social media after cameras unhappy, look on beyond safe face when Kern was talking to Jay z. Another horse had to be put down after racing center, Nita park. The horse named river derby is the fourth horse to be euthanized since may seventeenth in the twenty seventh to die since the season began on December twenty six you're saying that sort of happy fashion. I think no read that more somberly. No, I'm not. I don't mean that you're happy saying it. I'm saying you sound a little too happy while reading about horses dying. You can turn down the broadcast or a little bit. And finally, a forty seven year old resident of southern Israel is facing charges of aggravated robbery after successfully stealing nearly nine thousand dollars from two banks us month using an avocado for all the latest headlines and information. Tune in sports on ESPN radio all throughout the day, you ran you read the funny one in a way that wasn't funny and you read the not funny one in a way that was trying to be funny theater the mine, then is that what you're gonna do every time you're terrible. Like you're just going to say Stater of the mind and hope that everyone just applaud you. I mean it's worked so far. Can't very good. The nets have to max contracts. That's a mean Alhassan. Give us some expertise on what that means does it mean that they know they've got either Durant, or Cairo right? So first of all, we have to talk about how they cleared the space. They had to use two first round picks attached to Alan crabs contract to clear the space necessary as you said earlier when you're giving up to I. Rounders. You don't do that, just because you do that because you have a strong inkling that something's going more than an inkling. No, it's gotta be, you know it. No, it's got to be they're not positioning themselves to be available to Durant. Right. Kyri. They've got to know something you've got strong indications. They have to have strong indications, but you never know then you never know because these guys, particularly when we're talking about these particular guys who are moody and flash, or contains their mind. Very rapidly, right? I mean like if you if you're listening to one hundred percent coming how much can you trust that? It's a multi multi million dollar business. I mean, they just trade it, they just traded someone who has sensibly has value and two picks do have value because they just did that you don't know that you just don't do that on a whim. You don't do that on a gamble. You do that, when you know something? No. But I'm telling you, if your Sean marks, and I'm Cairo Irving, and we're sitting in a room, this is complete tampering. But I'd say I'm coming to lie one I'll be there. How much can you Shaw trust that coming from him? Particularly a guy who's been known to change his mind on a whim, don't you have to trust Mike, like if they're doing doesn't this indicate what the nets did today doesn't indicate to anyone, they're going to get one of these guys? It's a strongest indicator. They gave up two. First round. Picks mean said, usually we've seen this before in the past when team are moving things. Remember when the Cavs started moving contracts? They he the heat went into that off season with nobody on their roster. Nobody could figure out why they thought it was take. Gamble. It wasn't a gamble. The heat knew what was going to happen. And I'm not talking about multiple teams around the trade deadline trying to clear space in anticipation. I'm talking about the bizarre timing during the NBA finals and leading up to free agency when a team makes them a dramatic move, like not just clear in that kind of money. But sailing valuable assets, the way that they did in order to entice another team to assume that cap room, then that's a huge sign that something's about to go down in two thousand eight Michael Beasley was the number two of role pick in two thousand ten before free agency. He traded him for two second round picks, like that's two years of just career. They punted on it, right. Any other team would say, wait a second. It's only two years the guy was nineteen. Let's see what happens they punted on him because they knew they knew what was coming in new surprised. I understand what you're saying about Kyrie. He's unpredictable. But these business decisions can't be made with somebody you make him wink, wink. But you have to know. Before you start trading away actual assets. And so what I want to ask you guys is, if you want to go down that speculative path is this move the one, they just made where you're trading guys in value, just to clear up space that feels like something you do for Durant. Not for kyri that feels like to me something that you do. Because you think Durant is coming. Maybe Durant and Kyrie. But that's not something you even do for kyri. You do it for somebody else. Will you do it for two of them, right or just Durant? But you do it because you think you're going to get two of them which leads us to the next problem. So the nets have room for two max, the Lakers, and the Knicks and the clippers all have a path to get the two max, lots there, aren't that many guys on the market. And that's besides all the teams that have room or flexible to get to one max lot. There's not that many free agents that are worthy of that. So at some point someone is going to have done all of this work and be left holding a bag of money, and nobody pay it Veneta position. Right now, if Kevin Durant, if it's important to him to go to a team with Kyrie Irving, because there's tons of question marks, I saw on highly questionable yesterday. Talk about this guy reserving with a team of young players at its core to try to lead them to the next up. We kind of just saw that fail in Boston right now. But if the only way to get Kevin Durant is clear room for Kyrie Irving, because he said on it, then you have to do that. It's interesting because I think that what has happened this year. And I don't know of Cairo Irving sees this when he looks in a mirror, but it seems like we can all agree. Oh, look good enough to be a number two guy on a championship team, simply not good enough to be number one guy on a championship team. I don't know if he knew it before this feels like you went to Boston because he didn't know it. And then he realized about halfway through the season. He realized I mean, I'm saying that what has celebre n- I what has happened has been. What has happened to me is leaving? He became polarizing millennial who beat LeBron and his own power game younger guy doing it to an old head before the old head could do it to him change his cue rating. And it took him half a damn season to realize, oh, I ain't for this. I'm not for number one guy on a team. I don't want this. I don't want the responsibility. I don't want Terry. Rozier, aiding me. I don't want any of this LeBron by the way. I'm sorry. See that's not how I process it. I've process. It us. These guys won't follow me like he's, it's not that I'm not good enough. It's that guy's fault that I'm not going to go. And that's kind of the crux on HQ yesterday. If, if he did have that realization, then I'd be fine with him coming enjoying my young team. But I don't think he had that I think he thinks that oh it's their fault. They didn't listen and follow me and that's why we lost. And so he's just gonna go somewhere else and bring the same kind of energy isn't he the last one to know? Is he the last one to know that he's not a number one on a championship team? Kyrie Irving is not a number one on a championship team. Can't be your best player. You have to understand though, it, it's probably the worst possible situation in order for Irving to lead a young team when that young team went to the Eastern Conference finals without you the nets clearly have room to grow. Boston was like we were a game away. Mike does all city is this has less to do with the accomplishments, and more to do with his day-to-day behaviorally shows up. To the facility. It shows up to the, the gym. Transition time for some that's way too close strong. I mean, like really nail the dismount look, I, I said too much Peter out is what you did. I use my quiet voice donlevatar. It's Friday I'm getting into the weekend. I wanna get my drink on stugatz. You gotta open up the club open it open age open it. It now but is the computer buffering there is. VC's live at our show with this Stu gods. On ESPN radio. That's alhassan. Our thanks to him for being in with us all week. We're going to open up the club here in a second. But first, we've just got update. Some polls real quick at lebatardshow on Instagram and Twitter. What are the updates on the polls fakes to hold on a second? Fakes to God's amino Hassen the replacements to God says something he has to say here. The Twitter poll at lebatardshow is brought to you by Dollar Shave Club dollarshaveclub delivers the products used to look feel and smell your Beth right to your door plus with their handsome discount.

Big fat wife, life. Are Mike and I and hot tamales in the jelly bean family. Sixty three percent of the audience said, yes, is it amazing? That the H category at home. Run leaders is led by two Howard's with the same number of home runs. Sixty eight percent audience said yes, and can't a jelly bean be square eighty percent of the audience said, no. Those are the polls. How did you guys feel about the delightful time we spent with Kirch in isn't it amazing? It is like it. It's a bit like frolicking with a popular circus freak. Because this is a compliment. The things he can do on baseball trivia, where he, he crushes himself, if he doesn't get something from the nineteen hundreds, correct. That's not normal human behavior. I was talking about this with Chris earlier pretty useless trait to have like the name who has the most home runs by who's insulting him. So you guys could have gone with, like genius very knowledgeable. And instead, you went with circus freak and useless. Go ahead and opened up the club at lebatardshow, Instagram and Twitter if you want to change the results of that poll open up the club.

Billy found a minor leager nineteen twelve outfielder who had an unassisted triple play. I've got questions about how tryst speaker had so many unassisted double play. How were they playing baseball back then chasing people down on the base paths with throwing the baseball who else in the club? You get that, right? That's God's dismissing MC hammer, you are genius. Yes. Dismissing some more and maybe mortified wealth in the club. He looks better on the toilet night doing anything in my life. That is Billy on a rod. He looks better on the toilet doing anything in my life. Where the lot. Wells in the club. If you get that because. Radio just it makes me uncomfortable. Who else? I just had to go to bathroom. I don't know which time to believe Paul Pierce, when he says he pooped himself for now when he says he did. What, what are you doing today? I'd like to read a book or two before we start planning.

Good about a Taylor did you. Did you count all fifty of them? Oh yeah you lay them out for body count.

Because you've been telling me that you've been counting on me. Said I stopped at three. I'm like what's the point of counting the Dandelions but for me it's you know manifestation of my work. That's how I'M KEEPING TRACK OF IT. I. I can't count at bats. I can't town innings. I can't tell looking for things to count and right.

David Miller and I'll ask him about dandelions warfare. Also some stories about his time in his work in Paul indicators will jump in with a treetop on the latest news I some of those notes We heard from Baltimore's outfielder trae Mancini. Yesterday who revealed that he's recovering from Stage three colon cancer in doubts. He will play this season. If Major League Baseball returns the twenty eight year old made the announcement in his story he wrote for the Players Tribune. He will also speak later today with members of the media in Baltimore Major League Baseball's allowing teams to offer refunds to fans for games currently not being played because the corona virus pandemic previously games were considered postponed instead of canceled allowing teams to hold onto revenue generated from ticket sales. The pirates are suspending retirement benefits for members of the teams baseball operations staff in an effort to cope with the economic. Fallout of the pandemic general manager. Ben Harrington said Tuesday that the team has been searching for ways to find savings with the two thousand twenty season on hold. I heard about this. That owner Bob nutting has been looking for ways to save money and this is the route that they have chosen. Usa Today reported that appears the hall of Fame Ceremonies for two thousand twenty will be postponed the hall of Fame Board. We'll talk on Friday with an announcement likely to come. Friday perhaps Monday. One of the alternatives being considered is to just postpone the two thousand twenty ceremonies and fold them into two thousand twenty one by the way in the regular Writers voting. It looks like one candidate is likely to get in this winter former pitcher curt schilling and Bob Nightingale USA Today also reported on the three division format Major League. Baseball is considering. We'll get to that in a moment and before we get to David. Hembo a reminder that the F. e. p. pod presses on through the pandemic this week. Sbp AND STANFORD Steve Discuss. Dennis Rodman taking a midseason vacation to Vegas the Pistons. Not Shaking hands with the Bulls after losing plus Scott Yells at Stanford Stephen Big cat over. Ncwa fourteen. They talked to John. Salley Michael Wilbon Jackie. Macmullan find it wherever you get your podcast jumping into the numbers matthew evaluating millions. He's using data in the the Cincinnati by two hundred points. This is Hembo knows and AMMO. Is Paula McKee's researcher and ESPN? Who's a hot show in the show? get up. He says he's ahead hunt show. We have not confirmed that Hembo everytime at and we Bob Nightingale wrote a story of USA. Today about this. He dug more into the idea of three divisions. Possibly if baseball restarts and I feel like every time. One of these stories is published What is lost a context for no fault of the Writers Just because it's published it carries a weight that maybe doesn't necessarily have because they're talking about so many different plans in each has to be discussed. Each has to be vetted each has to be broken down each has to be explored. They're incredibly fragile because he's one executive said to me Yesterday if they restart baseball in one person gets infected. Then they have to shutdown like the UTAH. Jazz did back in March in the best comparison to me is a drowsy clerk. Win that drug. That was has been mentioned in the fight against the corona virus. It's one possible solution but they need to be studied. They need to be vetted they need to look at different elements of it and because it's one thing being discussed doesn't necessarily mean as we learned with the drugs a clerk win that it is actually a solution. What do you think we're so eager for solutions? And that's why we're so eager to jump at the possibility that baseball might return in whatever format soon as possible. But I think that you're right in saying that with no fault of the writers. A lot of these ideas are for lack of a better term pipedreams and we're so eager like they're almost being interpreted by the public as reporting and that's just not the case. I think if I were running Major League Baseball I would obviously be doing the same stuff in terms of outlining all the possible scenarios and. That's good I'd probably be a little bit more vigilant in ensuring that leaked I probably leaked a little bit less or at the very least provided information to the people I wanted to. That was a little bit more in the reasonable side and a and a little bit less on the really type side because a lot of these things that I read are just so And the question at least based on where the world is now that it seems to me sort of a waste of time. I think mainly League baseball should be focusing on a couple things here in particular the first how could we limit travel as much as we possibly can obviously the bubble city the hosts those hosts type cities format like that would be like a World Cup style round robin or whatever the case may be just past him. Get up today talking about that. I think is sort of foundation of something that could work. You obviously have to limit the travel. The second thing I would focus in on the the assumption the assumption that we're not going to play in front of fans. What we need to do is have a plan in place for whenever that does happen. Whenever we can't play games lord willing to we can to enhance that experience as much as possible. Buster everything's on the table. Something as wild as getting ballpark food delivered to you to your home while you're watching baseball game sometime in August should be on the table. If I were major league baseball those two things. The limiting of travel in the in the watching the game watching experience from your television should be the two things to be focused on all right. We've had a great parade of contributors on the PODCAST. So far this week that'll continue in a moment with David Miller. Who's ahead of grants or Fenway Park? On Friday. We will be talking with Janet. Marie Smith who of course was the person the architect who designed Camden yards. And I know Todd Radio. I feel the same way believed that she should be honored the hall of fame because that. Ballpark was a crossroad. I think in fan experience. What do you think dusty the best compliment that I can provide a new stadium that I visit for the first time is every reminds me of camden yards? There's so many things about it that you'll see across the league now in though it's only was built ninety two though it's less than thirty years old. Two thirds of the stadiums in the league had been replacing. There are a few things I'd like to point out just in my travels that I would say Remind me of Camden yards and in all cases. It's a good thing. Exterior brick facade is very similar citizens. Bank Park was the first thing that I thought when I went to my first phillies game in target In Minneapolis targets field both more has that beautiful skyline the way that field position to so perfect and strategic. That was my thought when I was sitting up in a four hundred level at target field. It reminds me of Camden yards. They had these open concourses. These stadiums for often very cramped in the concourse very challenging to maneuver camden yards gets footprint was huge. In relation to some of those older ballparks in reminds me a lot of great American and Suntrust Park in Atlanta and lastly I think the coolest thing about the stadium and I think a lot of people agree is the warehouse. The way that it's positioned it's an outline in relation to the field is so smart and obviously in San Diego. Petco has the warehouse in left field. That's built into it in a similar way. I think that's really cool that they were able to use the The building that was already in place to be a part of the ballpark experience and a half to say the warehouse is probably going to go down as one of the more conic things. That's ever been put in any ballpark because of the character streak like when you see the numbers changing on the warehouse as he does he approaches have been breaks Lou. Gehrig's that is an extraordinary thing bus there and you know to the genuity. Think of that. And then years down the road. It'd be able to be executed in that way. A truly brilliant thing that I don't think it'd be overstated now. I I agree. I'm really looking forward to that conversation and on Monday we're going to talk with Jeff Idelson former president of the hall of fame. We're GONNA get a lot of his stories and he's got a ton of them What's your take on on the in relation to hall of Fame Right Now? Well people ask me what my dream job is there and they usually say I would like to be the shortstop for the Phillies Given the fact that's probably Unrealistic they approach each season be hall of fame. President which is what he was formerly. Would be up there on that list. Field to play golf at those guys and to be you know fraternizing Like that is sort of like the dream for for for someone like me and for a lot of other baseball fans and I think I have. I have to give him. Credit Hall of fame receives a lot of criticism. And some of. It's fair for the way that the way that the last Inter fifteen years have gone specifically as it relates to the steroid users. But I think that's a good thing. Buster because when tells me that people care about the baseball hall of fame way more than all of the other ones and there's real value in that the stringent process for election and away in which voting goes is so much better and more controversial in baseball than any other sport and that's why the Baseball Hall of fame is infinitely better than any other sport and I think? I think you'd agree with me and saying this. Every baseball fan in every baseball writer should visit at least once because it does provide you a different perspective. I'm so tired of hearing the arguments. It's just a museum that is not the case. The Baseball Hall of fame is not just museum. It is part of the Baseball Hall of fame. But the busted a plaque room is holy ground and the way that I view the platform is very different. Pete Rose's represented and Baseball Hall of Fame Museum but he doesn't have a plaque the distinction. There is very important. It's something that you don't really feel unless you're in the building right. You and I are going to have an argument next week. Then 'cause I have always been a baseball museum and and that whole I mean when people use the word holy that's where they cross the line for me but you know what We hit on that next week. Thanks for example Looking forward to it. I'll bring my incident. David Meller ahead of grants for Fenway Park. He's also the author a book published last year. One base it at time. How do I how I survived? Ptsd and found my field of dreams. I in Dave. I was noticing on Amazon a bunch of reviews and pretty much all of them five stars like I've done a couple of books. I didn't come close to those types of reviews on very humble. Thank you for the opportunity to be on your on your podcast. You don't have I'm very humbled by the response we've received you know we. We wrote the book with the that if we could have one person Learn from our challenge it was worth writing and the response has been very powerful. So tell me in your interaction with folks a reaction that you've got that really stuck with you one person who connected with the book and came up to talk to you about it you know. It has just been really The response we've heard from people in all walks of life from the first book signing we had Two people drive up from Washington. Dc was in the CIA one was an FBI agent who had been dealing with PTSD and came to see us. We've had people From Highway Patrol and firemen from people who've dealt with sexual abuse to Rape two fires in their own home to car crashes to all sorts of trauma in their life. And I had someone reach out to me two weeks ago who work was dealing with. Ptsd from cove it and You know we want to let people know that they're not alone. That helps available and that treatment works. You know it's nothing to be ashamed of to ask for help. You know for over twenty years. I kept all my emotions deeply buried inside because they thought it was a sign of weakness to ask for help and now I know it's a sign of strength to ask for help and the response we've gotten from the book Is is shown that that people can relate to that and there are resources in the book to let people know that. Ptsd doesn't just come from From war it comes from any life threatening trauma and it's a natural response to the To trauma and there is a help available and I thought all along when when you when I first started talking about this and you mentioned that you wanted to write a book I thought boy year are in a perfect position to connect with people because of your work. And the fact that Fenway Park is so recognizable and because baseball that people can relate to you. You know through those through those avenues. Is that the what you've experienced? It really has You know the first. Espn e sixty piece that we did with you Literally the very next day The Red Sox Was We're in town and a visiting player? I walked out of my office and my office is right across the concourse from visiting clubhouse and a player from the visiting team was coming in from the team bus and stopped me and said David You know my teammates and I saw the piece last night and I wanted to stop you until you Thank you for having the courage to share your story Because of you sharing your story you know Many of my teammates and I realize that it's not a sign of weakness to ask for help and many of us are going to see our team. psychologists also and realize. It's a sign of strength to ask for help. If you can do it we can do it. That's really great and I see all the time when I'm out on the field that players will stop by and they'll say hi to us they walk by and I'm curious about in in your time in your position. A story about a player that you connected with Players you see and it makes the point coming in saying hi you know. I've been very blessed this. This'll be my gosh thirty. Sixth Year in the majors and I've been really fortunate to you know some great players through the years. You know it not only guys it have great stats through the years. Just you know. Great People From Robin Yount to require Selo Just people And all all stages of their career just been really fortunate to Make some friendships with guys that I say they all put on their pants the same way we do have life outside of baseball. I've been fortunate to Make connections with guys and and You know stay in touch with them. A lot of Will Stop over the office to see Drago Lance mccullers a lot of times. We'll stop over to say hi to Drago You know made friends that way. Too and and If you can exist explain for listeners. Who Drago is and when when you met. Drago. Yeah I'm sorry Chocolate was my service dog. Drago came into my life May Ninth Two thousand fourteen Geragos my service dog. He helps me with post traumatic stress. as well as mobility and he goes everywhere with me Other right now during covert he stays at home I go out of the House but he He's trained not to go to the bathroom on grass and so he goes everywhere on field with me and He is just absolutely other than my wife. My Best Best friend and He's on the field with me. A lot of the players will stop over to to say hello. Get to know them and He's really been an important part of my life. I'm pretty sure that he he's a German shepherd right. We had German shepherds and I'm assuming that's what he is he is. I'm sorry. Yeah he's a German Shepherd. He's he's seven and a half years old and he has literally he's changed my life he. He's an important part of my life and You know there's another DSP and feature called David Drago that. If you're interested you can find a lot more information on how he's touched my life. Yeah and he is is a great personality and I see players come over and and pat him all the time I I'm guessing. Also a lot of your connections with folks on the field through the years have been through the weather You know with a storm front coming in that. Sort of thing I if you had any stories about managers or empires you've got to know a little bit Through three work in that regard. Yeah some of my best friends are umpires. Who I've gotten to through the years and you know one of the first things I look at in the morning other in my wife and Drago is whether and letting the last things I've Work Look at is whether we have some great Forecasters so really get to to work with weather. Shout out to all my co workers who've helped make connections with that and Different people you know through the years really are into whether remember Joe Kerrigan. Pitching coach was into whether I've heard my Mike. Trout is into whether they'd never talked to him yet about that and You know it's interesting. David price was always interested in whether APPs but You know speaking of weather. I remember this morning. I saw on twitter Mlb CATHEDRALS. They talked about They had a picture of a a flood at county stadium on June. Twenty First Nineteen Ninety. Seven in which county stadium Flooded in which. I think we got over four inches of rain that night overnight in which you know forecast was for thunderstorm so he put the tarp on overnight but the rain did what was called training where it just kept raining over Same Line of Pathan has a travel over Milwaukee in which it just didn't stop and so the water kept rising and rising and County stadium was kind of in a low spot came in from the parking lots and just flooded the park but do the hard work of the crew. But we're the water drained away and well that days game was rained out. We're able to get the field ready for the next day and once again it was just a lot of teamwork and That was a fun experience and funded part of how in that situation. How long did it take you to get the feel ready? I had a game on a Sunday in Wrigley Field last year. And I can't remember the circumstances but they basically had to play and so for two days. The brewers in the cubs essentially played a steady rain. And I remember talking with the grounds crew there about how many how many tons of material that they put on the field they literally replace the Infield overnight in terms of material that went in there. So in that situation. When you guys had that Milwaukee New York and how many hours did that require and the amount of labor involved? There's a lot of labor. Fortunately the there was a field ahead of crown to it so the high part of the field was infield skin so the infield skin state pretty much dry but the outfield and home plate were soaked. We actually brought in a helicopter from. I believe it was local channel. Four and as long as they were not having a covered. Emergency around the city We had a groundskeeper in the helicopter. Cab with the radio and they flew over different parts the field We would communicate with on different parts that were wetter than others. They literally hovered over the field. Six to eight hours kind of like a big hairdryer. Downdraft Helicopter was I think. One hundred forty eight hundred fifty miles an hour and We helped you know. Blow dry the field and There was just a lot of teamwork to get it ready. You know while some other rain games you know here the old field. When I came to Fenway Park did not drain. Well the most antiquated field In baseball at that time the last major renovation. When I came to fenway in two thousand one last major renovation to the field is nineteen thirty four it did not have subsurface language so when it would rain hard being on landfill water would be waked up from the bottom as well as water. The top would not drain away so we would often put ten tons of drying agent on top of the grass. And then the next day take backpack blowers Blow a lot of that Drying agent off and save it for Future Day and So it was a lot of challenges with the old field ownership invested in a new field that was put a modern field that was put in after the Oh four world series and so fortunately feel does drained a lot certainly a lot lot certainly a lot of teamwork keeping field zone going with Mother Nature. Well and you told me. A story wants about how The the with the old field that the drainage a backup so much that they would be fish near second base at Fenway Park. You know that is that is a great story and I started At Fenway I sat down with Mr Joe Mooney who was groundskeeper at Fenway. For thirty years and One of the first days we sat down we were talking about how ballparks were similar and different and Joe Said David when it really rains hard but dugout for flood because of the Infield crown and he said Okay Mister Mooney you know. I've seen dugouts flood before you said it's a really really rains. Hard water from the street outside the park will back up from thunderstorm. Come Underneath a city drain and the manhole cover and the concourse will flood the whole Third Base Concourse. We'll fill up with water and I said that a lot of water. He says it really really really rains hard. The first base camera pit or backup with water. From the city streets infill all the way to the top with water and the fish from Charles River which is about a mile away. We'll swim through the city. Drainpipes and swim out on. The field was in January of two thousand one. So I stop Mr Looney was pulling my leg and I went home and told My wife you won't believe the stories that Moody tells well fast for that year. In April we opened early April on a Monday and on Friday night. We were supposed to get a couple inches of rain so we put a tarp on Friday before opening day and sure enough. We got close to three inches overnight Saturday morning when it stopped raining I went out to the edge of the tar early morning around seven and sure enough. We had close to three inches of rain. I walked behind home plate on the warning track. Got Near the first base dugout and there was a fish about five six inches long. Oh my Gosh Mister Mooney. Set me up for a joke. Three months ago so I looked up in the upper deck and yelled his name and I couldn't find him anywhere and walked over to the camera. Pit and sure enough. It was full to the top with water and I looked between the camera pit in the second base position. There were seven more fish on top of the tarp. Absolutely true story I. I wish I would've dry mounted a fish for my office for his office for ownership but the sun came out in the Russia getting ready for opening day through the fish way but luckily I took a picture of the fish and it hangs in my office. Fenway Oh that's awesome. I was GonNa say you know like the Boston Globe? Absolutely love that pictures of fish on the field at Fenway Park Oh yeah absolutely. Now you've given you and I have You give me the tour of Fenway Park in different parts of it. I've been lucky enough through my work to go For example inside the Green Monster in left field of curious. In your time being at the park Is there been like a person. You've enjoyed Giving tour to celebrity. I'm sure that through the years. Some people who work in politicians are in politics might have done that or maybe some former players Because Fenway Park is such a unique place. I've had the honor to meet a lot of Incredible people and and veterans and people you know from the Jimmy Fund really Very humbled to beat a lot of people and I my first year. There was a gentleman in the stands That I got called over to meet and his name was David. Cheer and Turned out he had climbed Mount Everest at that time for different times and they Someone asked me if I could walk him out to the field. He was a huge red sox. Fan and so I walked out to the field and and that they were working on the pitcher's mound I said. Would you like to stand up on the PITCHER's mound and get a picture and he got to the edge of the mountain and took a deep breath and and he says you know? I have chills running through me says I have more emotions running through me to climb up that ten inch mound then I ever had climbing up Everest and I just literally I mean I kinda gives me chills right now just think how special you know Fenway Park Mound is no I dream was always to stand on Fenway Park bounded. I get chills. Every day. I walked down the field and and just to think you know you know somebody who's climbing Everest five times now You know has that. Kind of feeling for fenway really Put things in perspective again for special is yeah and soon as you said his name. I was thinking that you're talking about the climber who is in the book into Thin Air. In part of that movie in the that was shot. That's incredible exactly exactly. You know just always remember that day when John Wayne came here and and I don't know if he remembers saying that. It struck a chord with me. And and I've I've met some incredible. I say wounded warriors and veterans and and and incredible children from the Jimmy Fund. And and you know like you say politicians and athletes and just Some wonderful people who help pre game and I just happen to remember that quote That you offend way has an aura to it and you know you say I get chills every day or walk on field and always remember that that quote now you got into this in part because you love baseball and I was thinking about this today. That In two thousand four. When the Red Sox had that incredible comeback to beat the Yankees they finished that series on the road When they won the world series that year they finished world series on the road in Saint. Louis in two thousand. Seven You know they weren't you know they finish that on the road if I remember correctly in two thousand thirteen though they wrapped up the world series at home. So I'm wondering what you remember from that moment in where you were because your office is down inside Fenway Park and you wouldn't necessarily be at the edge of the field. But in that moment when they wrapped up the world series in fenway. We're worried what he remember you. I remember coming out of the Dugout And it was just magical and You know we had to set up The infield to get The MVP truck on the field and For that celebration you know with the crew on the ground crew hustled out and set that up and then shortly after that was set up My daughter and wife We're able to make it down to the edge of the field and security them out there and So that was really special to have my wife and daughter be able to celebrate on the field with me. That's awesome before you go. I wanted to ask you and I I again thought about this morning in this spring because I have nothing else to do. I've decided I'm going to make the best lawn in Westchester County New York so every morning. I'm out at dawn. Fighting Dandelions and as they prepared myself to ask you this question like Oh my God. He probably has so many people asking him so many questions about lawn care all the time. It's like a Doctor. Being asked for advice on handle a headache or something like that before you answer the questions about Dandelions. How often do people asking you questions like that about their lawn? Oh that's fun. A lot of people ask me questions about about I care and lawns and you know that. That's fun part of the job and you know you ask them about daddy lions. I'll tell you a funny story you know when I was in college I couldn't wait to get my first home lawn. You know I dreamed of I was. I was dating my wife and could we had plans to get married and and I couldn't wait to get my first home. Lawn wanted should be like a pool table with not a weed and site and then when we got our salon we had our two daughters and and they taught me through. There is how they would pick They would find dandelions on the side of the yard and picked these bouquets of Dandelions and they just thought these dandelions were beautiful with these curly stemmons and all the flour and when the dandelions would go to seed and be that big puffy ball they would They call them blow flowers and they would chase each other and they would make a wish and then they would blow the seed heads all over the yard on Giggle and run around and if we could find clover we would sit for. It seemed like hours looking for four leaf clovers and making necklaces out of the flowers and the stems and I quickly realized if they were happy I was happy and my my war on. Weeds was over the literally. My favorite flower right now and ever since has been dandy line in fact. I posted a picture on my instagram account Just the other day of Dandelion and so when I see a dandy lion now makes me smile It Brings Back Wonderful Memories. And you know like life Lawns are all about tolerance. You know it doesn't have to be the the lawn sign in Your Yard. Keep off my grass. Lawns are all about creating memories you know and you know it's about having a healthy actively growing on invest in quality grass seed. You know you get what you pay for. You know investing quality grassy. Now's a great time to change the oil in your lawnmower. Sharpen your mower blades. In fact get a second set of mower blades and once a month. Change Your mower blades. You know we sharp on our plates Regularly and check blades every day. We Mow Because you know we have a clean field it at home. You're hitting Sticks and ACORNS and walnuts and dog toys and those Dang up your blades and make your not sharp so you think of cutting your hair or shaving. What the DOLL BLADE. That you know is not good for your hair let alone your grass so if you cut your grass with a dull blade today it may look green when you mow but tomorrow. Look Brown because all those crafts blades are going to be shredded and those ends dry up and they do two things that don't try your grass out quicker and those sores on the grass. Open it up for a disease and GonNa be injured injuries to your grass And then now's a great time to do a soil test on your on your soil and that's easy to you can contact your county extension agent and do a soil test and that'll tell you the percents sand silt clay in your soil and also a nutrient analysis And you can use that as a base and they'll give you recommendations on what you need for for fertilizer. Never think a little bit good. A lot must be better with whatever fertilizer use whether it's organic or synthetic and never think you know I have a half a bag leftover. I'M GONNA go ahead and use it on my lawn or I'm gonNA throw it in the trash and always be respectful that you're not spreading someone your driveway and leaving it there to wash down you're down into the street or into the gutter. No follow the label on whatever back product you're using the labels the law so be respectful there The spring is a good time to Core Air Rate Now it's still pretty chilly. It's been chilly spring. Certainly in the northeast You can see in the spring. The best time to oversee the ball because the soil is warm The Fall Frost. You know September. The northeast is a good time if all frost will take care of weeds but you can certainly see now Coming up in and when it warms up just a little bit but once again Follow the label on whatever fertilizers. You're using You have lots of options on on weed control you can mechanically take it out You could use corn gluten for An organic crabgrass control. Or you know when it comes to clover and Day No end. You could leave it. You could Spot spray you don't have to go out and broadcast something on your whole lawn But you know it's it's it's certainly wants against about tolerance and you know thinking about the environment when you care for your lawn guilty about my war on Dan now after hearing your story too but I my memory for my son.

I'm a boss I hey yeah we did. We tricked you on that way taint home one time and instead of going to store to get the CU. Les We brought Tang Home Day. Ahead man Kuwait's good. Everybody likes Kool aid. Nobody likes Tang was more seemed like it was more rich exactly so when uni no but don't just commercial whole deal in expensive avenue picket white fence two pairs at home so I didn't have any Tang in the house full of food to light Tang and then when and you went and got it. We kicked it up. We got paid instead of package a Kuei. You know blackberries the best flavor ever. We're done with it now tropical punch man. That's not bad either. I get to the dodgers coming up in just a couple of minutes but very quickly Monday night. Football last night was awful. Okay I mean that was a match to Owen three teams and it looked like Andy Dong Man Andy Dalton nosy. We okay we he's. He got knocked around last night. They we get a six times. He's just so bad though he's something I don't even know the record off. The top of my aunt's thirteen against like on prime time television. He is often awful primetime games like the Monday night starting Sunday night playoffs all that he's like you one thousand at ESPN. You're a former. NFL fell player number one overall pick that would be you have any influence with them like eliminating the angles from prime time football because there is nobody that is a lot less interesting reading and tougher than the bengals. You know it's interesting because everybody gets one primetime game. You give him a Thursday. It just depends they may have a Thursday. I Dunno their schedule from top to bottom but everybody gets one. You know everybody's GonNa get one. PRIORITI- game just so happened Thursday sixteen that. Let's give them that one either that Attar week week three and they got they got a new head coach yeah so all part of the deal steelers get back into it last night because they were in three looking for their first win. The the good news is as they win the game. The good news is they haven't lost a division game. The good news is both the browns in the ravens are only two and to the steelers have not played well until last night arguably and yet they're only a game back then one and three so at the end of the day they're right there in like you say they have not lost a division game and Baltimore knows debt as well as Cleveland Cleveland and Cleveland's getting ready to get into the media to schedule and Baltimore Arctic is GonNa Start to settle down a little bit and it just depends on what Pittsburgh wants to do from an offense offense standpoint moving forward. Do they want to make the rule off air to begin or do they still wanna keep everything kind of being robbed. Burger ready whenever he comes back next year because if Rudolph off all of a sudden it becomes a guy that he was at Oklahoma state then they have a strong chance of pushing the ball down the field completing impasse is doing all that sort of stuff and making a run into the playoffs now it becomes a money issue. You know oh well you know these little injure won't you sit back Titan weight and then that's what you do it. You start the the the the root off air now or you could just keep the seat Moore for Big Ben. I don't know if this was any sort of. I don't know example of what the steelers offense is. GonNa look like going forward but the big concern to me going into last night was the fact that the steelers defense has been absent all the names that we talked about Ben Eighty Yeah Yeah. Why is your defense so porous all of a sudden last night. I was the first time that steelers defense showed up they had the most sack safe has since since like way back in the early nineties fifteen seasons said they had that many any sex if that defense can show up. I know Andy Dalton. Make people look a lot better than what they are but getting the QB is hard whether it's a good team or a bad told you know but anyway because I've been in sports for world covering you can almost count the sex. I've seen your heart to do fake sex last night was the most that they've had in a single game in fifteen seasons of Elsie pointed out you say why because everything was heavily being being being being at three. Bs that was the promotion was the hype it was all about that so the defense wasn't really a focal point. The defense was only a focal point with Mike Tomlin. I got here he took over when he still had joy porters in Troy Troy follow and all those defensive players that that they had because everything has shifted to the office. We'll score more points than you would do enough just to stop you from score more points than us but now shifts to the defense because Beta there is no more triple bees. They're all gone. I mean they're not rare anymore. steelers get their first win of the season last night. The dodgers will find out who they play. We got got the Milwaukee brewers. They're in Washington. DC to take on the nats and it kind of if at a glance it feels like you're kinda rooting for one or two things you're rooting to go face ace to really nasty pitchers in Strasbourg and Max Scherzer. That's the Rana face the rocket arms or would you rather face a much more offensively offensively oriented team in the Milwaukee brewers. Even though Christian Yelich broke his kneecap and has been gone for a month fact of the matter is the brewers haven't hit much since he left that offense that they had has has basically been incredibly opportunistic for lack of a better word. They're only hitting about two thirty eight as a team so she went down. Would they're doing is. They're pitching lights out especially early in the bullpen their bullpen. Era has been three on the nose for the last month. They don't have a bunch of guys like Sherzer in Strasbourg. What they do is if they can get somebody to throw three or four innings earnings out of the chute then all of a sudden you're into that pen and those guys are hard to score against well if you you tell me is a three? Era What is that is that they know. That's very very good anything tipping over at three you got any anything between three and four pretty good anything. North of four isn't great and approaching five. It's downright bad but when you look at the bullpen right you say that the bullpen is doing you know they're right around three yep but that an average because everybody is that an average because one or two people people really pitching goods and the rest of our car the whole bullpen has been really steady really steady now. I'll still take the brewers if I'm Dave Roberts in the dodgers. Rogers and I'm sitting there watching this game tonight. The ideal situation is the game last seventeen innings. Everybody uses up every pitcher absolutely things just a disaster astor more realistically. I still would rather see Milwaukee. Come out of this thing. I'd rather take my chance against a bullpen team then C. Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg asper two or three times in a five game series because those two guys will probably both pitch tonight. Which gives you a big advantage in game one but after that they're gonNA come back on short rest? They're going to grind briand it out if they have to and those are the guys that can come out there and give you six seven innings not give up a hit. Maybe strike out eight or nine or ten guys and all of a sudden. It's the seventh inning and you're down three to nothing and you're cooked well. I think that they would rather have the brewers our viewers just because I remember the old uniforms Robin Yount so good university. Were not no no mustard in green looking over that logo that M B with the glove in the ball. It's one of the best logos colors horrible but I think when you when you look at what the dodgers have done against Milwaukee in the past they've played pretty well against him where in the nets as far as going up against the nats whether it was with dusty whether it it was this managing crew. They've always kinda struggled. They kind of you know split. They've lost games in Washington. Kinda got pounded here in. La a couple of times so it's like when I'm looking at it and I'm saying to myself okay you. You mentioned the pitching but the bats are the dodgers then look for the heat across. They can go your they. They're looking for that one or two pitches that get away over the plate that said ninety miles an hour ninety five miles an hour that they could just connect and go your because that's the advantage did. I believe the dodgers have drawn green and Lebron James Talking about the bill the California Governor Gavin Newsom signed on Lebron James's TV show of all places where that law going affect in two thousand and twenty three which will allow college athletes that attend universities in the state of California and it will prevent the NC double a. and their universities from making them ineligible if they go out and try to earn money based on their name and likeness okay. Let's start right here because because I think that one of the great things that the NC Double A. has managed to do with this whole thing one of the great things that the PAC twelve was attempting to do yesterday the SEC has attempted to do as well is kind of muddy the water and make this because this is a little bit anecdotal but I think it's relevant. I was at my son's baseball game last night night and it came up and somebody said to me yeah well the the state of California's already stop right there hold on a second this is not taking money out of one pot what and giving it to Zion Williamson or you know Matt Fink or anybody else okay what this is is allowing methane everybody everybody that is attending a California University to go to their local high school. You're a baseball player at UCSB like I was always blind my jersey. Nobody's watching me on TV but what I do is I could go back to my local high school and say hey. I'm running a camp this summer for pitchers. If you'd like to send your son to buy candy bucks a comment abuse. ESPN's pitcher come on out. I get to make that money based on my name the fact that I pitched in college. Did you ever see the dark knight returns. Yes and he's is fighting bane. Yes I manage fighting. Bane and Batman is getting beat up getting his ass kicked and then what he does he region towards utility belt and he throws all he's like firecrackers to try and Bain Salmon goes all the art of distraction and misdirection very powerful tools rules against the uninitiated. That's what the NC double. A. Is Right now. They're getting to ask throwing firecrackers in the air hoping for distractions because it is a very powerful tool for the uninitiated and the person you talked to he's not initiated those of us who've been paying attention. We're not being distracted by this notion that they're going the change the message of this law is that going to be in the top ten later. Elsie well. I brought it up for a reason and super duper tease. Tease me tease you so far advanced Ashby today's now three three weeks or marriage on early. What's GonNa be interesting about. It is how deep in heavy the NC two A. gets its onboard in when they get on board with. Obviously it doesn't kick in effect until twenty twenty three but along the way there's got to be It's got to be fine tuned a little bit more erupt key. Florida has a bill. That's in in the process that would make this a law in twenty twenty so the the snowball rolling rolling. It's picking up momentum in California's the forefront and things of this nature but it becomes a little sticky at times. It's going to be come sticky for the university's he's at times because I haven't seen the bill and read it in in steam exactly what's in it and all the little documents and all those sorts of things but when you go oh you think about it though some universities in some of these states got some heavy hitters in some heavy deep pocket boosters and recruiting is going to be a major sure sure situation so you still gotta. Kinda get to that little bit of it and figure it out because I could own a stable of billboards along the four or five freeway and I decide to put Travis Rodgers up right here in his What do you call those little. God cost to to exist to exist to exist underwear and you can have it pay union doll big and tall fifty thousand dollars to do this ads but as part of that deal is coming to the University of Southern California and come to Ucla or come to Berkeley because I am a professor Sir at the school but I also created this APP and I'm worth billions and silicone valley and we need you for advertise so that's going dotty but but it it is going on to some degree at some universities I would claim not in California. I think I think part of the problem miss is that we're thinking about at the very highest end where somebody's going to get fifty thousand to one hundred thousand to do that two hundred and fifty thousand to go to the school that that's happening already. What what this allows is the kid. That's on the golf team at. San Jose de go do something this is this is not about the Star Golf Calloway and do do it exactly do inland side you callaway magazine or can I tell you a couple of grand. Yes exactly. It's so preposterous to me as you guys know. I used to do films when I was much younger blacula. He's starting black. AP's he he was zoom lens foreign the back of the room sitting on one and blue desk from Elementary School to my dad's me it was meetings could have been there for for for an obie award or something kept going I had a theater scholarship in college. I got paid aid for the movie. So I go. I do the movie and I come back and I pick my scholarship and keeping moving an athlete need cannot do that. No I'm just the same student athlete or I'm just the same as any athlete on campus but I'm the one who has the freedom to go make some money professionally and still come back to my scholarship and tack and what makes this different than some of these other things that have tried to push it through is that there is a Mega Megan mega name attached all this stuff and we're talking about Lebron James hear his thoughts on being a part of the bill that was signed in Long California is a win California honored to be a part of it the governor and understand what athletes for so many years we believe with special because it's almost like each young at taking advantage of for a long time that's what we all bleed and most of what we could sit here and it was also great to have been there as lightens renews for Long Time. He was first wants to step up and challenged the whole ruling about like things that nation to benefit from a council that they need to respect back. They're bouncing. Basketball always do man. I gotta work on a jumper in Lebron is right about guys like o'bannon who fought the system for such a long time and came away with a win but at the same time didn't come away gaining anything from a financial standpoint which is sad because he did deliver a championship. UCLA's basketball program but yet and still he gets no no benefits that long-term wise it helped out bring light to the situation where we are today in Lebron. James is going to you know when you look at whatever activism that he's doing whatever he wants to do. New polls career he certainly started this process right now so when he's done playing Baugh you gotta think that he's going to continue to be in the forefront of everything being that we see in half what we see happening today. Lebron has very clearly aligned himself with particular issues and been informed on them and understands understands them and understands the nuance of them can speak on them effectively and this is going to be a part of his post basketball. What Lebron you know it's always interesting to see you. The Central Star does with what does the guy do when he's done playing his sport. And how does he go about it. We you know we've been talking about Peyton manning since he loves going to do. TV's going to do this. Lebron Ron has a political bent to what he does. He's he's a mogul a media mogul. He's an entertainment mogul. He's obviously a guy that is deeply embedded in selling product looked in all those things but he also has a very active political mind and spirit and he just won. All those things are going to come together with when he got on board with this. It did matter it's interesting too. Is that a lot of US black journalists if you will were wondering what was Lebron James Doing in the community now light because because everywhere else he's gone Miami Obviously Akron and Cleveland he's been heavily present and visible and involved where was the bike sort of schools or what have you and he seems strangely strangely absent in La now we understand. He's actually was moving on a higher plane. He wasn't just going to do something that was in the community he he was doing something that was going to be on a national level. La is a little bit different. L Z born and raised here it takes a minute for us to reach out to the US. Allow you to just come in and be a part of the community. No matter who you are a superstar. It just takes a minute for people to cut you know because it's a little different different. I mean he could go to Akron. You can go to Miami but here in L. A. It's it's one of those deals. Where is so many antennas connected that you gotTa make sure that you hitting the right dot so key? That's Tim Hasselbeck saying that everybody treats Sean mcvay like he invented offense which is a pretty pretty great line. Pretty disrespect clearly like Jerry Lee because his hair no no if you go back to go back and a lot of things that tim says is background noise at times aunts for me it goes on one the other even though he's one of my colleagues and I like him but I have to tell him every now and then come on man stop. If you go back though Arcana take the same approach as Tim Yeah you know and I have shown is a good young coach and has done the tremendous job in the two half years. He's been here but when you when you burst onto the scene in all of a sudden you have instant success. You can have people that just touch you get hired as a head coach because people feel like Oh my God. He's the greatest offense in the game. It's all all with people want you to be really perception all of this too but you combine that but he's a really good coach. The next step for him is now. I've really gotTA use my mind countermove and I gotta make a counter move because clearly what I'm doing is not working with the running game and the running back so let me now now figure out how I could deploy my running backs to other positions instill get some value out of them and we could still be a very the explosive offense even though we're not getting the yardage in the run game which brings us to the question that I've had really all season long that you go back to those the first two years the rams were an explosive offensive football team that was predicated on Todd Gurley being one of the best players in the league that when Todd Hod Gurley was doing the stuff that very few people can do that him and maybe one or two other guys are capable of doing. The rams offense was unpredictable. It was dynamic. It was explosive and you knew exactly when you're going to play the. La Rams which you're GonNa get you can get a lot of Todd Gurley and then Jared Goff is GonNa pick you apart because you had so much attention being paid to Todd Gurley. I don't know what it is right now because they're not a team that runs through todd Gurley. You heard talked earlier. I don't call the plays pro. I don't call the plays man I don't call the place so he's he's obviously feeling the idea of what exactly are we seeing Jared Goff when he has to put it all on his shoulders five hundred yards which is great but three interceptions in a strip sack not great the defense you. Maybe you don't maybe this is a defensive team. They got absolutely bludgeoned on Sunday afternoon. What is the best before. What's the identity the of this team right now? What what are they are? They an offensive team. That has a pretty good defense. They really good defensive team. That can score enough points. What are they. They are team is trying to figure figure it out okay. They're not a team that from a year ago had it figured out it from a year before that had it figured out there just a simple team trying to figure figure out based on the injury girly. The injury to girly has affected a lot of what they do now. He's healthy I guess and he's back ready to go but they've got their mindset or how to utilize him because clearly upfront they're not getting the push okay because when they you get to put any goal line and red zone he was able to power through carry a few people at the second wave because the first wave defenders on their back. He's able to get up to speed and he was able to get up speed but it's very hard when I turn around and go right thirty five base onto clap poop hike in turning down soon as do I handle the ball and I step away. He's getting getting drilled. That has nothing to do with Tiger early. It has a lot to do with the offense align the strengths and the weaknesses of them. It has something to do with the play. Call selection at that point in turn. Sean mcvay doesn't understand that which I believe that he's dead he does that. The offense align is problematic for them and he doesn't want to just sade at even though I can see my own is. They're not pushing forward there. They've become a on the heels team opposed to on the tolls on tolls meaning forward this case you didn't know in on the heels meaning task locking yes. The wait is all on their rear ends coach so so I was just doing a quick little scroll through push. Oh team offensive stats so far through the first four games and I'm trying to find a stat with the rams are not in the top ten and and I can't good so other than you know rushing yards per game ten surprise surprise surprise. I think there's a a couple of things happening here. That's clowning are because they got stomped on Sunday. We think there's something terribly wrong with with them because they're not putting away teams at the same rate that they did a season ago. We think there's something wrong with them. I believe there's it's three things happening. They're trying to adjust keys point to a great point. He different use rate of Todd Gurley. I like to call it. The pitch count they're trying to adjust to the fact that there is a blueprint out there on their offense and so slows them down a little bit and they're also trying to improve on what they were a a year ago which is almost impossible because they were so damn good that got to the Super Bowl will and there's a blueprint out the you know like the plans being drawn up then you make the adjustment to make better plans to our house could be built differently and that's what they need to do. Sean mcvay needs to get into the lab along with the coaching in staff in sit up and put beings in their package against start because look Thursday night. Let's face it. They're going to Seattle in is going to be misty and it's GonNa be cold. Cold here in it's going to be right. You know the sky's going to be really dark and it's quite alright here morning. Freezing and dark jettisoned the phone damage. They're going to play a team as giving them fits for very long time. Okay they they. They've gone up there and they've won before. There's no question I about it's the Sean McVeigh's become the coach lost up there and so but this is different year with a different type of team in a different situation for the rams in this is a different in years different type of team especially on the defensive side of the ball for Seattle. There's a day beyond cloudy in the was. The what's the other guy that they picked up defensive picked up another one. Today cloudy comes in my first because he got the pick sixty of the day when you look at that sort of thing going up against this offense. Ally you see geared how malls gear gave him fits now Maj. David clowney watching that film he's GonNa sit back be chopping his lips as well as bare it from the bucks gave him fits as well kitty no this one buddy TV show. What is this you know it think long flowing hair? It doesn't didn't have any lyrics no then. How am I supposed to know. It has science though does have science it has hair. It has been growing ridiculousness. Go ahead. Can I take a match. You start a car. Reggie white in this is a thirty four years ago. I Don macgyver came out. I used to mess already. Lynn Anderson. You see long hair mullet yeah yeah the the feathered center parted mullet. That's why look like the coach. Will Oklahoma state. Mike Gundy right right macgyver. This show did not really have VAT element to it. It was no see okay. You know what you may have just answered the question before before I even as this was a show that you would imagine because of the timeframe how old I was everything else. Usually I'm pretty good at the TV stuff this show now five episodes would get his so far some stuff for just shoot him in the head tied him up up in two minutes left in Montgomery Rapper and Peroxide Kosovo two or three car with a match got a car would imagine gentlemen yes US Thursday versus. I got the rams and we got the joker. The joker opens nationally on Thursday initially. I wasn't wasn't interested in seeing the film because I thought Heath Ledger dropped the Mike. Why pick it back up but I gotTa tell you these. Little commercials makes it looks pretty good. It's pretty good. It's one of the reasons why we like. The joker so much isn't because of him trying to kill people because what he says he's trying to kill people. He was a woke Dylan. So I put together my favorite top ten pop culture moments of woke villainous all right that means. They said something that is actually spot on listen. You come in at number ten from reservoir. Dogs reservoir dogs couldn't Tarantino. I couldn't get into it though it wasn't tried. I'll probably try to watch bungee. Are you gonna you.

I love that line because how many people in our lives all they do is complain Complain Complain Complain and never do a damn thing raw number nine from one of my all time favorite movies yours to travel but never wears product. Yes the scene in which the protagonist is sort of laughing at the notion that you know they're trying to figure out this blue that blue and miranda the priestly yes the tagging. It says oh I see you. You think this has nothing to do with you and she begins to shred her because seeping because she somehow doesn't think anything that's happening. Room is important that as a detached from her and there's so many things in our lives that we think as happening that you know we have anything to do with actually the people who are deciding that aren't fluency every single moment of your life is one of the most fantastic monologues to me in cinematic history in hathaway number number eight introduced little anarchy from the dark night. It's all about the plan. You think you have your plan. She thinks you know you're supposed to do this and they'd be out and do that.

That's very mean. It's also very woke. It's like we all believe just because you know you ask for prayer that he's GonNa Answer. Everybody's prayers you have to consider the possibility he's like knows on the other side consider that often number six. There's no nobility in poverty. I love love this line because there's so so true we have this idea.

Nick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world. He didn't exist one story. The guys told me that to me is is killing two good way because obviously it's a metaphor for larger things in life all the conspiracy theories that are out there and it's like the greatest trait that anyone can ever pull oh and saying no we will never do that and once they start believing you would never do that. That's when that just happens. Free flowing uninterrupted. Oh yes no next number three comes from superhero movies but it's not from a superhero of course from the greatest villain and M. see you. That's marvel cinematic. Universe famous be fulfilled whose future well done suspected. Nothing arrogant never do they suspected nothing. Nothing the arrogant never do when I heard that line item mealy started thinking about just all the things that powerful men do that. It gets them in trouble and the biggest thing is when they don't bother covering their tracks when they're doing something wrong and why don't they cover the transplant the wrong because they're arrogant won't get caught heart.
