"Happened to be watching CBS sports network yesterday, and what flashes up on the screen is our call in number at times on CBS sports network. So this friend of oil can Boyd in Rhode Island sees the call in number. Here's us talking about it. Right sit down, and then send it to oil can Boyd himself says these guys wanna talk to you. So oil can Boyd all day long is dial in the call in number to try to get to us or what he thinks is us finally gets through from one to three during CMB, Sean marash, the producer over there. Picks up the phone. Goes. Hey, it's okay. And boy, oh boy. Imagine, Sean marash. Betting oil can Boyd. If you're the relocation Boyd spell oil can. I don't believe you. Race between oil can't the one word. So what is your uniform number? So then Carlin gets on the phone and carlin's big time producer, he produced Mike and the mad dog, he's an all time producer. He gets on the phone, and he starts vetting oil can Boyd getting into some real stuff didn't Carlin text you during this moment. Did he texted me and said, hey oil can Boyd called in is it. Okay. If we put them on because I guess he thought I had reached out oil can Boyd because I said to you reach out the oil, and I said, I have no idea how to reach out oil camp Boyd at. But he called it coming call them. Dennis boy. Well oil. See that's one of those nicknames that you have to call them oil short because that's what everybody knows it. But if I said Dennis Boyd, you're thinking that's a guy lives down the block from you can Boyd is the guy that we're talking about. Right. So they venom it's the real oil can Boyd he goes on the show, and when it's like a serious topic about whether or not you've been subjected to racist language, and people are prefacing every question with oil can tell me about this racist tirade. Zaki was doing that. Everybody was everybody oil can oil oil can can throw a couple of racial slurs. Can you tell me, yes? Or no. If for okay. Start with. So he goes on a says that he didn't hear this stuff. But he thinks that it probably happened. Right. And he also had some interesting takes on racism like he believes it. Wade Boggs is a racist. But Wade Boggs of the godfather of one of his kids doesn't blame. Wade Boggs for being a racist. Because he grew up in Florida away on it went from oil Kamboi one from Lenny Dykstra, and Ron darling to like Wade Boggs. Well. Example of how people become racist. I guess in how his take on it is and who he forgives for that type of stuff, whatever. So I'm not up on Boston Red Sox baseball. But is this like a big story or has it been a big story in Boston between oil Kamboi Wade bond, though, not don't think so because they're friendly oil can said it was in his book. All right. I guess he had a book wile ago. Now, Rodney this is not the first time Ronnie has written a book. So this is an interesting part of this. And I gotta give a hat tip to my buddy, Sal licata who works here part time S and why he had the Ron darling because he's a sick met fan. The Ron darling book couple years ago, I think three years ago that was game seven nine hundred eighty six. So he's I think I heard this story before so he ends up going through finding that story. And Ron darling has told this story in another book a couple of years ago, the differences, and we could sit here at breach of the passages. But we'll put you to sleep the difference is when he told the story the first time he used language like unsuitable comments venomous chatter. His tirade was remarkable. Fearless tasteless relentless never said anything about racism and never really talked about Lenny Dykstra character. Whereas in vis one this one hundred and eight stitches one near the hero of game. Three was also an a hole of the game. Lenny Dykstra, wanna baseball's all. Time thugs there always seems to be a guy in every organization in every walk of life who gets away with murder murder being a figurative terminus case while that was Lenny. So the point being is that the language in this wholly different is totally different. But it's the same story. Yeah. It's just for some reason Ronnie decide to unload on Lenny Dykstra in this book, and that's racist part of it. I get it. And I I would think that if our money I'd be responding to it the way of money probably is responding to it as well. But I'm not saying that Ron darling is wrong. I mean, Ron darling was there. Yeah. And he is probably the only coherent one there, by the way, sitting there listening between this, of course, Ronnie goes on in this book and starts talking about it. And then invokes the whole while I should have done something about it. And I did well and this kind of lives with me to this day sticking a couple steps ahead because people are going to say, well, what are your sat there and didn't say anything about it? What I'm saying is like he's removing himself from the vitriol, even though he also is saying that he sat there, and he supported it because I guess in his mind, and I'm only thinking the way that an athlete with. Thank hey, we won the game. That's all that matters. And that was the impetus of us ultimately winning the World Series was getting off to the start that we got off to in the first any against Dennis oil can Boyd. Yeah. So. Lettuce language here is is what is fueling everything. Right. Absolutely. Same story different characterizations. This is since line is since we all know, what Lenny stories over the last five years now all of a sudden this. It's a lot easier to pin. Something on Lenny Dykstra, when you know, what's going. I if you're Ron darling isn't what we're saying yesterday. If you're going to tell a story or out somebody Lenny Dykstra life makes it easy for people to believe that he could be involved in something. Like, right. Well, he says he basically says, you know, he was throwing every insult an expletive in his direction foul racist. Hateful hurtful stuff. I don't want to be too specific here because I don't want to be. I don't want to commemorate this dark moment in Mets history..

"They're always down. And yesterday was another example of their so Ron darling. Got a book out and the world to me is very interesting because you can go one or two routes. You can either go the very boring book route where there's gonna be no controversy. You're not going to sell a lot of books or you throw something in there. That's going to be somewhat. Controversial that no one has ever heard before. And then all of a sudden that gets picked up a bunch of articles. Everybody's talking about it you go on a press tour, and there you have it. So Ron darling. Who was a guy that I don't necessarily align with controversy throws in a story about Lenny, Dykstra, and Lenny Dykstra. Of course is a guy who I do align with controversy, and this story is that, you know. Oil can Boyd who is a guy. Who's now we he's still alive? We have to nine years. Fifty nine years old. The old Red Sox pitcher a guy who received by Lenny Dykstra, a ton of racial slurs. The most vile every imaginable. Unimaginable insult and expletive in oil cans direction. This is Iran darlings words in the book foul racist. Hateful hurtful stuff he wrote in the book worse than anything. Jackie Robinson might have heard. Right. And he goes, but that's what Ronnie's right? And he said oil Cain was on the receiving end of the ugliest piece of vitriol. I've ever heard in a bar on a baseball diamond anywhere. So Lenny Dykstra, of course, then fights back. He tweets out. Why would Ron darling K Mr. perfect who's creating fiction to sell his latest dime store? Novel want me as an enemy. I live for this blank. Lock and load. Stay tuned for real facts about. Mr. P lock and load. Yeah. So he's threatening to put out a bunch of stuff out there about Ron darling and his life or whatever. But I mean, it's just like there's nothing that's going to change my mind about these two guys at this point. And this is why they Ron darling probably went towards Lenny Dykstra was going to put anything controversial narrative. He's going to take down. Anybody was going to be Dykstra because he's had so many problems. He's so out there who were just talking about his freaking flop house or whatever the Halley had their New Jersey where he was housing prostitutes to rehabilitate them, or whatever the hell the name that thing is. So at Ron a guy the beloved Ron darling on ESPN. Why broadcast? So there's really nothing that Lenny Dykstra is going to say that's going to change my opinion on Ron darling. But it's like this team. So I was four years old when the Mets won the World Series in eighty six. So I have no idea. I don't really have a memory of this is right in my wheelhouse. NFL player right at this time. No, all these guys have have, you know, had a few beers with these guys when it came through Cincinnati at my club out there the waterfront and all that other stuff. I I would think that there were two players that I can think of that were on the Mets that were a coherent at that time one would be Ronnie, darling. And the other one would be Gary Carter everybody else. I think had some sort of issue or some sort of problem. Alan I we're talking about this before the game right now. Yeah. Because the guys that came to Lenny Dykstra defense yesterday were doc Gooden who you can't trust. Kevin Mitchell, who you really can't try cutting heads off a cats or something like that was in the Jeff Pearlman book about the eighty six Mets. Jeff Pearlman says that Dwight Gooden told him he witnessed Kevin Mitchell, cutting the head off of a cat alive. Cat Alica road kill cat. He saw that good and happened upon an argument between Kevin Mitchell and his then girlfriend and to prove a point he cut the head off a cat. Yeah. My coach Kevin Mitchell said that's not true. So that I guess Dwight Gooden tell stories to sell who. All these guys have a checkered past except like a Ron darling. And the Gary Carter and a Gary Carter whose fast even Ray Knight had that weird thing going on with. Young man, he was living with a domestic dispute. Wolves gone out with that like a freak show. Yes. Everybody on the team. I was looking at the roster. Forget it. Right. And then of course, bike has Ronnie darling yesterday talking over every answer that Ronnie's trying to give and Nelson. Komo greatest. Whatever meantime, you've got big head and big head of art ESPN interviewing Dykstra, who goes off a said in. Of course, like we have here sometimes dumped on the radio. Sometimes it makes it on television. Made it on television. Right. He said he was gonna drop if he ever sees Ron darling. He wouldn't say a word to him. He would drop him like a red headed blanking step. I would not doubt any of the accuracy of the book. I really wouldn't. And of course, Ronnie has to put something in there like that to make it interesting. And then elicit a reaction from somebody that he's accusing of using words like that. And I would not have none of it surprises me. I mean, I'm sure that Ron darling has a lot of stories about people that he doesn't want to go out there and hurt or ruin their reputation. But it's like a Dykstra has just been beaten down to the point where nobody has. To the guy with not right? Who's running a prostitution rehab centers outta? But I do know in defense of Lenny Dykstra. I mean, if if that were written about me, I would be incensed when you sure, of course, if I mean, if it wasn't true. You know, what I'm saying if it'd be someone's lying about me to gain some sort of notoriety, even if it is true he asked to act as if it's not true. You know, he's got a react in a way. Does he have to say that was a different person back? Then I would never do that. Again. I was a young kid. I was nuts. I've learned my lessons. Like, I don't know. Do you have to the after Lenny Dykstra? Got. In this environment that we're living in. I would I would damn straight. We you'd have to you'd have to defend yourself. It's not like Lenny Dykstra is going to be. I don't know losing endorsements because of this Lenny Dykstra Fridays at the lowest of the low. So I mean, I think that if he came out and said, yeah, you know, what I did that. And boy, do I regret it. And I learned a lot about that. That would be what would you expect him to do that wouldn't expect I wouldn't? And that's why I'm not surprised by his reaction. And I'm not surprised that Michael k put him on his show opposite of Ron darling on Mike show. I think I I couldn't I I don't know the timing of it. I don't I I have no idea. But of course, that's the way to go. You got two guys in the news like that. You can go get the other guy your other competitors. Got the one guy you get the other guy. Where's oil can Boyd? This thing. We get in with him. L? I did look up oil can Boyd. Unfortunately, he's had a very checkered past. Yeah. Body drugs and some issues air. So I wouldn't know where to find oil can Boyd. I gotta tell you boomer you've really to have made it out of eighties. Professional sports crazy the way that you did to have the career that you've had not. I don't think enough people give you credit every like eighties athlete. You look up this guy Cokie here arrest here. DUI scourge man was it was it was horrendous. And I told you we had Stanley Wilson that I prefer the Super Bowl here in suspended three times. And the night before the Super Bowl. They've they find them in a in a haze and coach wash decides on his own that he's not gonna play the guy. And I think it's a decision that coach wash can put his head down on the pillow and said, I did the right thing. I think there are a lot of other coaches in the history of the NFL that would have given the guys from coffee. Let them get a good night's sleep. And let them play the next day. They would have. But. So it was a wild time, man. It was crazy but back then to of course, we talk about a million times. It was easier to get away with stuff. You have one of the greatest football players of all time somebody who redefined a position and at a different way and learning Hayley in a haze. Right. Big problems. I know it's it's you go back to any. You know, your run of the mill or top star eighties athlete. There could be something there. I mean, we just went through the entire Mets roster from one thousand nine hundred Buki was stable, and maybe yeah. Sure Tuffah was probably stable. Yeah. You gotta have some stability somewhere guys that actually going to show up and play Raphael Santana. Maybe maybe. And that that team honestly. And I've said this millions of times here on the fan. I that that team was good on that team. Was so good that they should have won multiple champion. I I think they all know that said it'd be unhinged. Wally Backman, number one guys that team. We were we miss. They were out of their minds. Stories underneath the stands and everything else. Yeah. Strawberry. And all those guys. I think he did he confirm those stories. I think David Cone who seems very normal. Now, not back then. It would have been funny. Ron darling drop, the Kevin Elster bomb honesty, you know, go after Lenny Dykstra, just a little bit too, easy or something. Like that some guy never expect like oh men. Did you know that this thing about Kevin mcreynolds? Portland dykstra. His whole life is falling apart. Everything. Right. I mean, it just it's one thing after the next with him. Yeah. I know maybe there was a real sports episode with that. Well, he was doing and owning car washes. One big scam. Right. Exactly, man. I tell you is. Well, anyway, so we'll see this continue. Now, we're involved in this too in a little bit slum Lord. What? No. Because Ron Don I'm supposed to be on with us tomorrow. And now he's not coming on with us. So that sucks we're supposed to talk to him about it. I guess this controversy now he's thinking not worth it. He was willing to do a phoner. We wanted them in studio. Okay. Until they got to readjust schedule or something. We'd let him answer the questions. We wouldn't be jumping all over him. Got it. I don't know what she talking.

"We'll have Ron darling. Be former Mets pitcher one of the eighty six World Series has written a book called one hundred and eight stitches about his life in the game as a very controversial passage in that book in which he claims that his fellow former teammate Lenny Dykstra, made abusive racial taunts against Dennis oil can Boyd before the study game through the World Series of Fenway taunts that Lenny darks wrote viciously denies vigorously denies called into the Michael case on ESPN Radio New York yesterday tonight. He says he's going to suit Lenny Dykstra, excuse me, Ron darling as well as the publisher and two former Mets Kevin Mitchell and Dwight Gooden also called into Lenny's defense saying while they don't have any memory of that specific incident happening. They never heard anything like that from Rondo for from Lenny Dykstra. I wish and again if this could be heard this was in Boston. So I mean all the Red Sox fans around there. I would imagine you may maybe at some point with this book out here from some of them who may have been there to either back this up. Maybe not we're efforting rich Gagman who was the catcher. Then who would have heard that oil Camborne himself. Somebody tweeted in about you guys. Just ask Cam Boyd. Hey, thanks. Appreciate that. Yeah. So obviously, exactly. Boy and programming genius to Bill Buckner who was playing first base and anybody who kinda would have been in earshot of that from the Red Sox had to try and get their side of this as well. Because while Lenny Dykstra has certainly had a record of very cocky player, and then certainly after ball had a lot of issues going on. But this this is something else. This is something to put on somebody the the racial slurs and all that that's a that's an accusation. It's a bold claim to put in print if you're going to put something like this imprint they have laws against that kind of stuff. If it's not true. So if you're Ron darling you go into this. I'm very interested. How he went about deciding to put this in the book the way he did because. Yes. The character of Lenny Dykstra is not something that's usually going to hold up under the weight of any expectations. But this is different. Once you throw. It down imprint the game kind of change Lenny Dykstra, even said, I've written a book, and he and his quote was it. I'm sure it exaggerated the number. He said I had to talk with thirty lawyers about facts. Checking everything, you know, where's the fact checking here, and basically it the way it sounds right now unless you can get other people that were on the field to corroborate one way or the other. It's going to be a he said he said type of thing. Yeah. Look, and again, we'll have Ron darling coming up in just a few minutes. And again, Lenny Dykstra, background is for lack of a better term color. Yes. I rented all kinds of problems the players club. The stock thing that he was running and it turned out to be a disaster and all that kind of stuff. But that's it's one thing to make mistakes. Another thing to say someone is being racially abusive. And that is a completely different line of demarcation. And we'll have Ron darling come on and talk about that in just about six minutes. Meanwhile, other things happen.

"Man, this this American League's jam too bright. I mean, it just seems to me that the the champ comes from the American League, Ron. What do you think? Yeah. Yeah, I totally agree. You know, I think it's, you know, is a pendulum goes back and forth. Right? I think you know all these National League teams at some point gonna see what these American League teams doing and try to match it. I don't know how you match some of its happenstance walk. What I mean by that, you know, when you are the Red Sox and you, you know, you draft and you're looking for the best players. Every other team was doing that, but not everyone's gonna end up with bats and Benintendi and Bogart's and Bradley Jr. and on and on and on. And when you have these every day, young, starting players like Houston does like Cleveland us like the Red Sox do and also of the Yankees to degree it. You know, that's that's the way it was thought of for while. But young starting pitching was the way to go. But the fungibility of those injuries has made that kind of not as tractive as the everyday starting player seems to get injured less. Last one for you, Ron darling. Last night. There was a replayed second base where Daniel Murphy flip to second to start a double play that ended the inning. And yet not a single player ran off the field because they thought that there was not an out at second base after further review. It was either upheld or it. It was confirmed. We have no idea because baseball does not make the unpire is do with the NFL and the NHL does for those refs by explaining it to the crowd. Why do you think umpires either refuse to talk or major league baseball can't make them talk to the crowd. Yeah. Well, I, I don't know what their collective bargaining is, but what I think should happen is that the cruise should get me put together, whether it's the coochie for not because not everyone's comfortable talking to fifty thousand people even if they're one of the best umpires. But every every crews have one guy who has the ability to be able to let the crowd know exactly what happened on that play. I think they deserve it. They, they pay a lot of money to find out what's happening in these plays. And I think you know, with all the review with all the new kind of convoluted the game and made it more difficult, not less difficult. And and one of the ways of kids show some love for the fans. He's just clue them in what what the heck's going on. And I think they'll be much better. All right, Ron. Thanks for the call. Let's chat down the line. Enjoy that scene tonight. It's gonna be a heck. Seen in the Bronx as always. Thank you. Thank you, always. That's Ron darling of Turner. Sports. I do wanna give shout out to Ernie Johnson, who's not doing the play by play. As he tweeted out. You put out there on his social media that a a physical showed that he had blood clots in his leg that he's fine. He was on Turner. Last night. Do an NBA buddy. Just has been advised not to get on a plane and we're hoping whatever that is gets done real fast and also just want to give a if you will shut up from all of us here to Matt Millen, who was announced today is leaving the big ten network booth to focus on his health. And we hope that that yields the result that he and everybody else is hoping for with with Matt Mellon, eight, four, four, two, four, rich. We will take your phone calls and again, last what I saw last night from cubs fans made me think about going to a game. Being dressed up to celebrate and then having something absolutely opposite play out in front of you and how you handle that. I have my two cents on that subject. Andy, Dalton is coming up in our number two as are the quarter season NFL awards that nobody's asking for, but we are going to provide because dammit, that's what we want to do. Yes, back with more in a moment. Oh, by the way.

"So it's unrequited a season for them and but but you know the fact quite a run. And so how good of the Rockies do you think. I think the Rockies are are really good. I think Secondly, they have something, you know, very unique and that is, you know, their home field is unlike any of the other twenty nine ballparks in baseball. I think that the thing that's been really hurting them, oh, season ended up being one of those things. I hear their bullpen, but you know, Marquez Freeland of they're the real deal as far as pitchers starting pitches, the concern and the Rockies to me with the depth of their line. If they can go on one of those stretches where they start outscoring people by vast numbers. They could also make a run too because they have a unique kind of team and then defensively, which always is a big concern in the postseason. Probably one of the best defensive teams in game, Ron darling. He's calling. Tonight's American League wildcard game from Yankee Stadium here on the Honda insider report on the rich Eisen show. Okay, Ron. We talked abou-. About it throughout the year, how the Tampa Bay rays seemed to adopt a philosophy that was unique in starting reliever, and then trying to either bring the starter in the middle of the game and had go as long as you can or bullpen their way through an entire game. And now we're seeing in a playoff winner, go home baseball game tonight. What do you think of the as decision startling Hendrix tonight? To, I think it's it's right decision for their ball club because that's where their strength is with a day off tomorrow if they're able to get through this game. And also the strength of their club happens to be their bullpen, their starting pitchers that they've either been injured this year or taken off the scrap heap of done, an amazing job, but their strength is their bullpen. And I think in a one game or done scenario, I think Bob Melvin is making the great great move their bullpen as opposed to opening. I, I know for most fancy, they no difference. But you know, with the openers there's always you started comes in, it heats up, you know, three third innings, the five innings, but that's not going to be the case tonight. They would love Hendrix to get one or two innings of, but it's really strictly going to be a and there won't be any starters that come into the game at Jackson's on the roster, but he's only there in case we have a scenario like we saw last night, so I'll Hendrix at the end, the game for for the. Goal cubs, and it has typical a scenario like that tonight. Then you might see at Jackson in extra innings, but this won't be there relievers. And if you work backwards, you got trying to for to. You got familiar for two. You got Rodney for one, so that's five right there. At some point, you have to get four innings of a myriad of arms in that bullpen, and it'll be up to Melvin to try to make those decisions. So what do you think the Yankee strategy is tonight? What do you think? I don't Aaron Boone is doing with this with the the lineup that had the most home runs ever for regular season be for for Aaron offensively. There's no shanty. I mean, literally, he has one team and you know, all star quality just about at every single position. You know, you have a former MVP was going to be teaching, maybe one of the best players in the game and right field. Aaron Hicks, one on the radio, all years, out of the basic year into hard might be the rookie of the year. I mean, you can go on and on and on. But that lineup, it's a lineup is gonna play ninety percent of the time for Boone. So I don't think there's any match ups that he can do to match what nobody's going to do. And that is that none of the pitchers other than the guys at the end familiar and and trying to are going to face a hitters more than one. So what do you do if you're an offense? I, I don't know. I think what you have to consider if you're the Yankee team, this is the exact thing that would happen if in the beginning of the year or little the year, you'd knocked out of starting pitcher in the first inning and the opposite team had the bullpen the rest of the game..

"The bit base it into center field by Tony Walters who've come story. Part of third, the Rockies have regained the lead, Tony Walters with the biggest hit of his career. The, oh, do pitch. Data Scotto bird strikes out those side Rockies are moving in thirteen innings, the Rockies to Chicago one. That's right. And that was Jack Corrigan on the call and the Rockies are now heading to Milwaukee for the start of the league division series on Thursday. And that was the longest winner-take-all postseason game in MLB history. There's never been a game game seven or wildcard game that has gone on that long. And that sets the stage for what away for the baseball playoffs to begin. And now it's time for the American League wildcard game back goes on tonight. Gangqi stadium, part of TBS's exclusive coverage of the entire two thousand eighteen American League postseason. I mean, this is gonna be absolutely fantastic. I will be riveted as versus Yankees, Brian Anderson Dennis Eckersley and this man with the call Ron darling here in our. Onda pilot sponsored inside a report. How are you? Ron? I'm doing great. That was a great call by Jack Corrigan magin if you only Walters, he hasn't had a hit a hit since September tenth, and he gets that hitting the thirteenth only in baseball. You know what? It really is only in baseball. Eight, really, really, as I mentioned that the top of the show Ron is that we've seen, you know, crazy things happen in the NFL playoffs. Like David Tyree, you know, keeping his his helmet on with his football, you know, in the Super Bowl and we've seen we've seen NFL SuperBowl MVP's guys that you don't expect. But baseball, it's nothing like it. We're guy like Tony Walters, who many people have never even heard of who hardly gets hits, let alone on the road, let alone to walk off as the one that wins the game. It's unbelievable, and he gets double switched in, you know, as an afterthought because he's always been very good outlet defensive player and and. He gets the big kit. It's just it's amazing. You know, jacquard can go straight to the greatest ever had his life because I don't know if he's ever had another great hit and his life right before national ball. So what do you think before we move on from this game to the American League? Let's let's talk about a couple of things. What did you think about that? Bear hug moment between bias and and our our knows that the most bizarre thing you've seen or what it's, it's one of the most bizarre things I've ever seen. I thought it was a little ironic that Alex call that has the most czar things ever seen. He's involved in a couple of czar things with Bronson Royal. So I thought that was kind of ironic, but I never seen anything like it, but I will say as as baseball has gone on, and I think and many ways ninety nine sons away so much better. But because of many reasons, those kind of things that would be frowned upon when I played baseball's more kind of. Country, quote, kind of outlets. Fear, you know, the guys all like each other, they like hanging out with each other. It's a a more of a gentleman lease aren't now. I'm sure it wouldn't have happened years ago, but that that's that's all right to it's it's unique. Anything unique is always. So you're saying if somebody did that with Howard Johnson, he would have gotten cold cocked in nineteen eighty six. Not how Johnson Howard Johnson was a sweet guy. He's gonna fit in perfectly now Ray Knight by the call. Somebody tried that with Ray Knight. What would happen run? Well, Eric Davis tried it and Cincinnati once and it was a right cross, and it sound it's Mark minutes. You know, we were on the Cincinnati turf about a half hour down when it out. So listen, you don't wanna see that either, but the bear hug to me to me and and I've completely shifted on this from from a a grouchy, young man, I now more civilized older man. I think the best slips the hooks of at to me, it was sportsman like, and I think young people that are watching them find it the same around darling here in the Honda insider report..

And I up though Ron darling, he's about to join us right here on the program as he's calling what I after what I saw last night as he Yonki fan. I am all kinds of nervous tonight and a winner go home contest. Gang keys are one hundred wins versus in Oakland as team. That was absolutely terrific. This year, a bond of young kids gelling together with a front office that amassed one blazing bullpen arm after another, and it's going to be the Yankees first half as Luis Severino really hasn't been the same pitcher second half on the mound in the Bronx tonight against into athletics team starting Liam, Hendriks, and Ozzy. Who this season has not gone three innings at all. They're gonna try and bullpen metrics analytics, their way into Fenway park on Friday for the American League divisional series. And if they don't, it'll be Yankees, Red Sox, holy crap. You had a poll question over there. Chris Brockman before we get to right now. So so based on last night, pretty dramatic game, I think you say yes, which sport has the best playoff system. So MLB with the one game wild cards and five game seven games and fell. Do they do it the best college football, four teams make it college basketball, kind of a free for all sixty sixty eight genes make your call the plan, though you can't.
