Traveling To Medellin

"Let's open today's travel with Rick Steves travel writer Dave Seminar. He took his whole family to many in Columbia which used to have a reputation as the headquarters for a dangerous drug cartel. Our interview was recorded just before the global lockdowns kicked in. Hey. Thanks for having me on the show wreck. So you went to Medigene I, mean the image of Medina's like scariest a generation ago is one of the most dangerous cities on the planet. That's right. But but it certainly isn't any longer. I mean these days the murder rate in Medellin is lower than New Orleans Saint, Louis Chicago and several other cities as well. It's an amazing turnaround and. Tourism. Is a booming part of the economy I was just there. My son loves it so much. He bought a condo there and I was there for years this last year with him and we were standing on his balcony and and everybody was blown up fireworks and My son had a Colombian friend there with him and and we were talking about. It and when the Colombians see those fireworks, they remember in the days of Pablo. Escobar. That's what they would explode when they made a deal in the United States with the with the drug trade they're not making deals with the drug trade anymore with the Pablo Escobar outfit that's just celebrating. So they've gone from supplying America's cocaine habit to actually building A. City on live biting entrepreneurs. That's true. They I Columbia is still does produce eighty percent of the cocaine I mean to be frank. However look I went there with my ten and twelve year old sons and my wife, and I would never take them to a place that I thought was too dangerous. So I really consulted with a lot of different people before. Going, there, however, my parents and several other people said, Columbia. You're taking your sons to Columbia you nuts but I did my research and I talked to enough people who had had great experiences there that I felt comfortable doing it and we spent two weeks traveling all around the country and I felt very safe. The whole time tell us about the public tour. It was interesting. You know my wife said Pablo Escobar to are you sure that that's appropriate for our sons who are ten and twelve years old side I called one of the tour companies that had good reviews on trip advisor and he said Oh yes our tour is good for children aged six and up said really okay. Well, let's do it. We thought maybe we can teach them. Okay. He's a bad guy you know here's the. Evils of drugs and teach them a little bit about why the drug violence in and I thought maybe they a lot of it might go over their head but I thought well, they'll learn something. Let's do it but you go through a you goes through your neighborhood community thirteen, which is now trendy. It's filled with street art and is just a festival of good living not good living. It's still a poor area but a festival of happiness. Community Thirteen is sort of an interesting area I've I've found it to be one of the more disappointing stops to be honest with you on the tour I mean, it doesn't really have much to do with Pablo Escobar although it was a neighborhood that was wracked by gang violence, and then in two thousand eleven, the government installed a series of escalators there the idea was. Allowing people to be able to move safely through the community, get from their hilltop neighborhoods down to where jobs and transportation and things of that are. But when I was there in July about the experience maybe if you traveled at a different time of year, you might have an off more authentic experience, but it was absolutely full of tourists which really shocked me because here is. Sort of an impoverished neighborhood that has all credit to them. I. Think it's wonderful. They found a way to turn the violence of the neighborhood into a marketable commodity, but it was absolutely crawling with tourists and I sort of felt like, wow I really don't like going to places that are too full of tourists. So for me, it fell a little bit flat to be. Quite honest. But maybe if I visited another time of year, I would have I would have liked more. No, I don't think. So I mean I was there in the winter but to me, it was a former violence ridden gang ridden community that now is a kind of a tourist trap and it just like an amusement pier in San Francisco, almost or something like that. And what was really fun was the street art I mean, the street art was like it's like going through an art gallery and it's all this edgy colorful tropical kind of street art and you've got it all together by escalators I can imagine before those escalators came you know ten years ago you would have desperately poor people and You'd have the intimidation of the gangs and all of that and and the high murder rate and today there's there's not a hint of that and the escalators let people connect and I think you know the way Columbia has invested in its infrastructure has given poor. Barrios the confidence and the feeling that this is progress and changes possible and and one thing great about going to Medine is you write these cable cars because the city is in a very mountainous area and the poorest communities are pushed way up the mountain sides. But these cable cars, they're just like cable cars had a ski resort. They connect the people in the poor neighborhoods with the good jobs and the good shopping and the good entertainment down in the valley floor and writing these cable cars was just a kind of a celebration of community to me what was your experience on those cable cars? Well I love the cable cars just like you know I took the cable cars up to the park. RV. which is it's a long ride as interesting things that you take two different sets of cable cars. You can take one set of cable cars, which sort of goes through some of the rough hillside neighborhoods, and that one is actually fairly quite cheap to go through and actually when you're. On that first cable car, you're actually getting ordinary people who live in those neighborhoods coming on and off of your Gondola but then to go on the second. Gondola. which takes all the way up the mountain up to the park RV, which is just fantastic and I do recommend that that significantly more expensive so that that second cable you know Gondola is more for tourists in it's it. Would be too expensive for people who live in the humble neighborhoods. But as a traveler, it's worth it's worth it to do both at the lower part words the transportation for the community you you get a sense of the community and you get to talk to people. It's Kinda cool because you're floating above all of these barriers and then after the top city, stop you sort of plateauing you. Go across this amazing lush forest in a giant National Park and they're the only people still on the cable cars are tourists who can afford that but you get to the terminal point way in the middle of the park and I think the locals will come in there by bus, which would be much cheaper because it is a a wonderful jumping off point for for hikes in this nature reserve. Yeah. So the neighborhood that Pablo built I mean now it's called Barrio Pablo Escobar, Pablo Escobar's. But it was originally called million sin to a jury US medicine without shantytowns and the idea was he was really trying to improve his image in the country and he built about three hundred and sixty six humble homes in this neighborhood for people who are down on their locker many of them were homeless and actually living in a garbage dump area and in that region and you talk about street art they're. So there's a number of murals celebrating Pablo. Escobar would say that most Colombians despised Pablo, Escobar and everything he stood for. However in this little neighborhood and I met some of them. There are people who still revere him as quite a small minority of Colombians I would say, but you see mural several murals right in this borrow Pablo Escobar. Depicting. El Patron the hero, the Robin Hood that you're talking about in and some of those people, and there are some young hustlers there who are very interesting entrepreneurs. One of them has created, which you'll find in in the middle of this neighborhood is a Pablo Escobar memories. Museum now there was another Pablo Escobar Museum that was run by Pablo's brother, which was actually shut down and it wasn't in this neighborhood with the government closed that one down. This one is sort of a homemade sort of museum that some young hustlers in the neighborhood of made, and they also sell visits to the US through some of the homes where you can tour the homes and. It's kind of it's bizarre but yeah.

'Long Gone Summer' Documentary Revisits Controversial 1998 Home Run Chase

"Are joined by the director of long gone. Summer AJ SCHMUCK AJ. Congratulations loved watching that film. What does it feel like to have the film finally be seen by the world. I mean it's crazy. It's a been a long journey to get to this point, and it feels like a total miracle to have finished. With the pandemic and working separately with all my team so finally being able to get the film done and get it's ESPN. Feels like a huge accomplishment. Why did you decide to start the dock with the actual baseball's that mark mcgwire hit. Well is in part because we. When we met Todd McFarlane The Great Comic Book Artist Entrepreneur Who who bought all the balls or a bunch of balls including at number seventy. I just love the way he talked about the home run, and how it is something that really connects baseball fans to the game in a way that you don't get in any other sports so as soon as we like walked out of of interviewing him, I I turned to my producer, and said you know that's the beginning of the film. Is Him talking about what the home run in baseball means and how it connects fans, drinks have direct contact between Maguire's bat, and and the person who catches it. So that was that was great also has sort of the other. Bonus. Positive thing of reminding you that someone paid more than three million dollars. Baseball that's how big this was That's how much this took over the country that someone would would go to that extent. To own that ball. Having when watching that scene in Rhode. explained. HOW MICHAEL JORDAN HITS! A shot wins the championship. They go and bring him the basketball, and if if a quarterback breaks a record with the past, bring him the football, but with the home run. You literally hit into the stands, and you never see it again and it was sort of a way that the fan can take home a piece of the game in baseball. They can't other any other way. Way that happens with the home run, but then you did you hear him sort of articulate this, and then the question is asked how much you pay for it. It was just so much money that I wanted to know. How does this? How much are they paying people that bitter comic book illustrators, nowadays like what is the going rate for commentator Peter? How can this man afford this multimillion dollar baseball? Spun was very successful, but yeah I think. He spent basically every penny he owned and you know I I think in part. He did it because he he wanted to get into the business of making action figures for for sports. And and that happens I, mean he basically that was his way of getting everyone's attention in saying. Hey, I'm serious I. Care About Sports Let me make action figures, and and he did I think it was not only something that he wanted to do one thing that didn't make the film which I I tried to find a way to put it in, but he talked about how. His brothers are all baseball fans, one of the key excitement for him in getting the balls with just to be able to say I've got the baseball. As like well. You got three million dollars for that God. Bless Ya. I know that's right. The kid sweet swinging lefty King Griffey Junior, one of my favorite players growing up as Wa. Carry a bet to this day. was more of a factor. With Sosa mcgwire that people actually a realize. Can you acknowledge how his performance affected them? Certainly I mean one of the crazy things I think about that. Season was that people really went into it from spring training, thinking that either Maguire or junior were gonNA. Make this record. Both of them at hit and high fifties the year before this was an expansion year. Everyone just thought like this is GonNa happen went into the season, thinking that Griffey was was in it. You know right I think if you even remember the Griffey was in it. You forget that he was in it until late August when he had kind of a long slump I think he only hit one one home run and like twenty games and may still hits. Hyphen! which is a tremendous season that gets overlooked by what happened with mcgwire and Sosa, but certainly yeah I mean congruency. Junior had an amazing year that year and. It was in a in addition to to all the stuff. We remember of Sosa and mcgwire. He was. He was hitting the ball longer. In Maguire was sort of famously one of the bash brothers, and he had a great career while he was in Oakland with the athletes and Sammy Sosa wasn't as celebrated as a baseball player, and he said something in the film that really hit accord me, said quote ahead had to continue hitting. Because if not, they're not going to mention me. Why did you include that emphasized that and what that means you from Sami? I thought it was great. It Sammy acknowledged that he wanted to the respect. He thought he deserved, and he does that a few times I think in the film and I mean that's sort of a lighthearted way of like saying like. I turned on sports center at night and if I don't hit a home run like they're not gonNA mentioned. He wanted to be mentioned. He wanted to be acknowledged and I think that one of the things I hope that the film does Sami. Wasn't that well known outside of Chicago before ninety eight, but. That's in part because the comes weren't very good, but the Sammy was was a great player for the cubs. A thirty thirty guy I thirty thirty guy ever in cubs history. He was a top home run hitter in the National League for years. I was one year where he was on track to get close to the record. But was injured in in August so You know was a goal to sort of illuminate. The fact that Sami wasn't just somebody who like. Jumped out of nowhere in June of Nineteen Ninety eight that he meant something in Chicago before that. Implant in Chicago, the weather can be a factor. Do you believe it play as much of a factor as Sammy Sosa states. I mean all I can tell you that. We were there in May of last year to shoot the Saint Louis Chicago series in their. Earliest! May and it's snowed one morning. And I was just like. I grew up in southern Illinois outside the St, Louis and I love Chicago. Chicago is great, but I was just like hell though. Away being at the game it was cold. It was rainy and it was just like damn out. This is football. Weather's that I don't know but yeah. No. I definitely know He. He I believe in when he says he's. He was a hitter that did better when it got warm. Not that good of a hitter in the cold. Certainly, see see that that would be the case. Which I think is also in the film. You'll see you know one of the things that makes a Kerry Wood's twenty strikeout game. All the more impressive is that he's. He's doing it on one of those days, and the rain is coming down east going through like You know thirteen fourteen fifteen strikeouts that day, so? Yeah! It's whether in and regularly I think is probably no joke. With all of what's happening in our society in the world, not just in our country today we kind of have to look at things in stories in history, and currently through the filter of race. And how do you think race played a role in this particular story of mcgwire and Sosa and that summer? I think that people wanted to feel good about the fact that they liked this battle between these two guys who were from different cultures different countries. And different races. That probably made people want pat themselves on the back for feelings so good about it I think in part there still memories of what had happened to Hank Aaron and sort of the ugliness when he was. Setting the all time home run record. So people felt like. Wow, look at how far we've come to celebrate and get excited about the fact that this could be. A champion of homerun record that was held by either of these two guys. There's a somewhat famous. Cartoon! Where the two of them are depicted with their bats wall has been broken in the wall, says racist. You know like that. The two of them had finally solved this problem. They beaten it. And I think. It's just a you know. It's one of those times when. People have wanted to. Congratulate themselves for reaching a certain. Threshold and clearly all of those congratulations were way premature. And we're still. We're still fighting for it. I hope that the people. Look at this though as a story of these two champions, and can get some excitement out of the fact that they did come from different backgrounds, and they have very different stores,

"To do one thing that didn't make the film which I I tried to find a way to put it in, but he talked about how. His brothers are all baseball fans, one of the key excitement for him in getting the balls with just to be able to say I've got the baseball. As like well. You got three million dollars for that God. Bless Ya. I know that's right. The kid sweet swinging lefty King Griffey Junior, one of my favorite players growing up as Wa. Carry a bet to this day. was more of a factor. With Sosa mcgwire that people actually a realize. Can you acknowledge how his performance affected them? Certainly I mean one of the crazy things I think about that. Season was that people really went into it from spring training, thinking that either Maguire or junior were gonNA. Make this record. Both of them at hit and high fifties the year before this was an expansion year. Everyone just thought like this is GonNa happen went into the season, thinking that Griffey was was in it. You know right I think if you even remember the Griffey was in it. You forget that he was in it until late August when he had kind of a long slump I think he only hit one one home run and like twenty games and may still hits. Hyphen! which is a tremendous season that gets overlooked by what happened with mcgwire and Sosa, but certainly yeah I mean congruency. Junior had an amazing year that year and. It was in a in addition to to all the stuff. We remember of Sosa and mcgwire. He was. He was hitting the ball longer. In Maguire was sort of famously one of the bash brothers, and he had a great career while he was in Oakland with the athletes and Sammy Sosa wasn't as celebrated as a baseball player, and he said something in the film that really hit accord me, said quote ahead had to continue hitting. Because if not, they're not going to mention me. Why did you include that emphasized that and what that means you from Sami? I thought it was great. It Sammy acknowledged that he wanted to the respect. He thought he deserved, and he does that a few times I think in the film and I mean that's sort of a lighthearted way of like saying like. I turned on sports center at night and if I don't hit a home run like they're not gonNA mentioned. He wanted to be mentioned. He wanted to be acknowledged and I think that one of the things I hope that the film does Sami. Wasn't that well known outside of Chicago before ninety eight, but. That's in part because the comes weren't very good, but the Sammy was was a great player for the cubs. A thirty thirty guy I thirty thirty guy ever in cubs history. He was a top home run hitter in the National League for years. I was one year where he was on track to get close to the record. But was injured in in August so You know was a goal to sort of illuminate. The fact that Sami wasn't just somebody who like. Jumped out of nowhere in June of Nineteen Ninety eight that he meant something in Chicago before that. Implant in Chicago, the weather can be a factor. Do you believe it play as much of a factor as Sammy Sosa states. I mean all I can tell you that. We were there in May of last year to shoot the Saint Louis Chicago series in their. Earliest! May and it's snowed one morning. And I was just like. I grew up in southern Illinois outside the St, Louis and I love Chicago. Chicago is great, but I was just like hell though..

"Is having someone that that can be very flexible in terms of positions played or it could be maybe a third catcher so I I think like every team's GonNa treat it differently the way we're lined up. I think we could probably go either. Yeah Brad Miller. We signed. Tell us a little bit about him. And your bench in that competition may be with Miller now in the mix well again. Going back to the Sorta twenty-six tap of opportunity and and the fact that you know someone that can swing it from the left side. I just feel like an complaint. Multiple defensive positions gives Our manager a lot of tools in the toolbox three batter minimum. Good for baseball. You like it. I know you're really into the game in terms of your asked about the rules. All the time and committees and those kinds of things. What do you think about this particular rule? I don't think it'll be that impactful to especially to the average Fan Again if you finish the inning you face one header or two. Yeah right I think it. It gets a little bit more. Tricky as as you bring in a reliever and he starts the editing. And that's where you're going to. You know that's where things could get a little testy but you know alternately. I think it's probably knocking have as big of impact as maybe some people think a couple more questions l. Let you go the London series It's great for the cardinals. I mean why is it a good thing for the Saint? Louis Cardinals fans asked. But why are they going to London? Well I'll ask jam mosaic. Why is it good for the cardinals? Well when you think about your brand and having the ability to grow at globally as is something that you these are rare opportunities and and so you know we think about the cardinals. The Saint Louis Cardinals. Is something where you know being able to to reach out and touch people. We normally couldn't seem attractive to us. And so you know. I don't know if if the London series is going to go on. Pass this year or not but you know. I think it's a it's a great honor to know that it was Boston. New York Saint Louis Chicago and so to be thought of in that type of regard is something that? I think we were all flattered and thought it was a great opportunity for our brand and for our fans. Finally Mo- With what's GONE ON IN HOUSTON? What what kind of restrictions I baseball going to look at with all teams before opening day. What are they going to try to do to make sure that these kind of things don't happen? Well I I have been told on on what some of those things might look like but rather than get ahead of myself or the league I think I I better not but you know clearly you don't want to you. Don't want a repeat of this and given all the drama and and really some of the results of what has happened from this. I can't imagine that it would continue. But you know crazy things do happen. So I think having some Governors on this or rules in place. We'll we'll be something that use. Ucf thanks no. Thanks for doing this every Monday. And it's going be a fun year.

"I'm Patrick Jenkins deputy editor and this is news in focus where we offer our insights into the stories that matter the the US Federal Reserve has begun to consult the public particularly in poorer parts of the country apartment or trade policy as a result policy. Wonks at the Central Bank of begun to reconsider the impact of their decisions on communities far from the centers of power. It with me to discuss. This is our us. Economics editor Brendan Greeley. But first let's listen to an exchange from one of the recent public meetings organized between local community representatives and fed governors even places to lower than rates are going to be even in lower and we're going to have less power over a business cycle even less ability to support maximum stable prices nonetheless. It starts with the thought that we have to get inflation back up to two percent we wanted to be medically around two percent. Do you think we'll have a hard time explaining that to the general public ideas. He is ahead to do that. I think you're going to need another three hours. said in the long term it will have an impact higher inflation. I think we agree but for many of our communities distance to the long term. We don't we just don't survive that. That's that's part of the problem. The business close is is people. Don't get to make the choice safer higher education Families just can't find the milk today. I think that's the challenge so Brendan we just heard an exchange there between Denise Scott who runs one of the nonprofits involved in the consultation process and Jay Powell is typical of the kind of views. Put the Fed chair during his consultations. It is that conversation really stood out to me. I was in the room when it happened. And it got a big laugh and basically what's going on is that the Federal Reserve has a problem. which is that? It's running out of tools to actually accomplish monetary policy generally. There's what's called the natural rate of interest. It's impossible to measure. We have to sort of estimate what it is. But it's this idea of what interest rates would be without any intervention from the central bank so the Fed and other central banks are watching this very carefully because their whole existence. All of their tools rely on the ability to undercut this rate to drag it down if that rate and inflation are very close to zero. They don't have any tools so they're really worried about the possibility of low inflation. That's something that central bankers talk about all all the time. That's what they're worried about now. Normal people who live and work out in the real economy. Don't think this way at all and so. The Fed is starting to realize in particular through having these public consultations that the thing that it is obsessed with which is a lack of inflation is something that is completely legally alien to every normal person and what people actually out in the real economy are looking at and thinking about and worrying about is the fact that at least in the US the cost of rent. The cost of healthcare. The cost of education are skyrocketing. That's the inflation they think about but the idea that the Federal Reserve would want to create inflation and doesn't make any sense to them at all. So there's this massive disconnected. The Fed has in the thing is trying to communicate. Doesn't make any sense to any normal person but clearly makes sense that they've come to this realization that they need to conduct this outreach effort but what particularly prompted it and I was organized. Well it's almost a bit of an accident accident. That turned out really well. which is that the Fed about a year and a half ago decided that it was going to really look into its tools and and those tools are both how it conducts monetary policy? And then how it communicates. How talks about monetary policy to markets and the public to make sure the monetary policy works and so Jay Powell is an an interesting chair? He's a different kind of communicator. And his press conferences and he's gotten heat from this from people who were involved in financial markets. His press conferences are much more. Colloquial than press conferences references have been in the past from Fed chairs the challenging part of that is if you are colloquial and plainspoken in monetary policy. You leave open the possibility of misinterpretation and by markets. The good part of that is if you are colloquial in effect presser. Normal people might actually be able to understand you a little better so he's already a different kind of fed chair as part of this review. He decided that he wanted to conduct. What the Fed has called Fed listens events where he's going to go out into the community Mary and talk to real people in real places about monetary policy you know? Journalists were all inherently cynical about everything and I was cynical about this when they announced it seems like a one time. Pr Effort. But when I went to these events and sort of watched him and watch the other governors in particular. Jay Powell seemed to be really interested. He was writing notes and paying attention and actively engaging with people and talking to them he actually seemed like he was enjoying it. And that's what caught. My attention to things have happened. One is they've now had wanted wanted. Every of the twelve federal reserve banks around the country is the cities. All over. You know Saint Louis Chicago San Francisco and internally what we can tell from the Fed minutes and had also some hints externally. It seems like they're going to continue to do this. So this thing. That could have been a one time. Feel good public affairs. Event has turned into away. The Fed actually conducts research. And it's changing the way the macro-economists inside the Fed actually conduct their research. What would you say the main lessons that Mr Powell has learned from this excise of listening to local officials listening to local communities especially in poor areas so one thing that he has said that several of the Fed presidents have said that researchers at the Fed have said is that they learned from these conversations that there's more slack in the economy than they had thought and what that means means is as the economy expands it pushes the unemployment rate farther down slack? Is the remaining number of people who could get a job what they've discovered is they thought that the long-term natural rate of unemployment was five percent four percent that's been dropping when they go to these communities one thing that came out of the event they had in Chicago. Somebody said look in our communities were always in recession. There's never economic growth and so they realized that there a lot of workers on the sidelines. Who you aren't employed? Who could be employed? There's a lot more slack in the labor market than they had thought. These are things that aren't captured in aggregate statistics of overall employment in the country. That are caught when you talk anecdotally to people in certain communities I think that's the number one takeaway and the other one is that people don't care about inflation or rather rather people don't care about low inflation low inflation is a good thing and I think that's a real disconnect and I think the Fed still wrestling with that their response thus far has been. Well how do we teach them that. Low inflation is a bad thing and I think there's another step coming. which is that? Maybe the Fed still needs to learn that it may have to live with low inflation because what people are really worried about is the cost of medical care the cost of housing in the cost of education. Let's take a step back here. You're talking about how the Fed is changing but what is essentially the main task of the federal. What has it been up to now? And how is that different from other central banks around the world. Well what's interesting about. The Fed is that they have a dual mandate most central banks in the developed world their mandate is price stability. They just have to make. I'm sure that inflation is contained right. They've generally adopted a target of two percent inflation. The Fed has an interesting mandate it also has a slightly different history than other central banks it also has the mandate of full employment and so the Fed has defined its inflation target as maintaining two percent. It hasn't really defined what full employment is so it actually has this obligation under the law that charters it from Congress to pursue price stability and maximum employment. So it's starting to figure route that maybe it needs to focus just as much maximum employment as it has in the past on price stability. Tell us about that gradual shift in how these jewel goals have been sued in recent years. Well there's a separate thing going on at the Fed which is that. They're realizing that they have been unable to meet two percent inflation. Their target is two.

You'll have to eat the popcorn just having running better than any the time. Yeah. And just dump it in the trash. Yep. Yeah. That's not a bad idea. All right. Does pop talking. Loser fouls. Yeah. Well, spins on no one's gonna remember the blues because the capital's Stanley Cup was so impressive last year and lady put her boobs on the glass when a veteran got the Cup and other spin zone, Saint Louis has never be Boston in any championship ever. Oh, okay. Okay. So here's the thing. There's a lot of people saying that I wouldn't mention the blues vile. Here's me mentioning losers Stanley Cup final. Good job, good job. They are, and what good job four and my biggest. Much rest. It's going to be even even even Steven this size. Because okay, this was the whole thing like the Saint Louis Chicago rival like Saint Louis cardinals fans have been pieces shit forever with way they treat cubs. No. The in Saint Louis like anyone's listening right now is cardinals fan. They'll mitt this. Like they made all the jokes. The they said the culture, never win one and the cubs won one and it's like, oh yeah the blues have never wanna Cup and now that could end right now. And so it's like you know what? I'm good. Congrats blues fences. This me being as nice as I'm gonna be Saint Louis congratulations to all the blues fans, especially the blues fans AWOL's. All right. Let's take a look at hang I was so nice sake. Look at Hank's power rankings of what Boston fans have to be upset about now. Because now you can't be upset that you want to quickly and you have too much rest, because that's even Stevens. So right now what's your biggest concern? Is it that you're all world tight end probably won't be back until November when it comes out of retirement? Yeah. And also like the Red Sox what the cardinals both times? I think the Bruins like in the past when they played him swept the blue. So it's like they lose even one of the games in the Stanley. Cop that'll be kind of a letdown. Okay. You're setting yourself up for failure with gentleman sweep, here's a take the blues, this sucks because I'm actually just being nice put. I actually liked the fact of the blues fought back from a total bullshit, call game three because we have had like this new rash of everything goes wrong.

"Tonight. They're going to be back at it tomorrow when they opened up a three game weekend series against the dodgers. Just a note for you. If you are looking for brewers baseball, and you tune in here WTMJ, and you hear bucks playoff basketball, you should then head over to ninety four five ESPN FM because that's where brewers games go when the bucks have playoff games. Just a little update for you as we are in a really really cool part of the season where a lot is going on. And we wanna see the bucks go on a nice long playoff run. And we also want to see the brewers continue to win baseball games. Something that hard time doing here over the last few days, and hopefully that turns around against the dodgers. There's there's a worry right now. Maybe worry is is. Yeah. Nago worry. I got no problem. Going worry. There's a worry right now. From a lot of folks about. About some of the core players for the brewers who in the first thirteen games of the season have not gotten to where you expect them to be from an offensive standpoint. You can look at a hey, sue, saggy lar- has won eleven average. Travis Shaw hitting one fifty four Eric theme sitting one eighty two Mike MU stock is hitting to fourteen Ryan Braun hitting to twenty-seven. Here's here's a fun one for you. And I'm not doing this to take a shot in any of those guys. But remember how tough of a season Orlando arsia started off with in terms of his batting average down us around fifty batting average Orlando arsia now has a better batting average than all of those guys that I just mentioned now when you get into slugging percentage and Opie s and things like that. And where guys can really impact games and drive in runs in items. Like that number of those guys, I think are still being more productive than Orlando arsia. But at what point does it become a concern? And I'm not concerned about Ryan Braun. I'm not even. Concerned about Mike Misako? These guys are coming up with big hits. I just I don't look at them and see guys that are being completely overmatched consistently at the plate. But I think when you look at the three guys that are below two hundred that I mentioned Eric Fame's Travis Shaw, and hey, sue saggier, clearly those guys, especially Aguilar and Shaw, and then themes angular doesn't get going. Those are middle of the order driving and run kind of guys and Haisu zag lar- has driven in three runs. Travis Shaw has driven in three runs. They're just not doing what you need them to do. Travis Shaw has a track record tribes show has been around here for a while. He's put up good numbers consistently hit home runs. He's at doubles. He's driven in a lot of runs watching. What happens with Suzanne gular or something? I think is really really something that needs to be done because. Not that he was hitting one eleven post all-star break last season. But he certainly didn't have a post all-star break portion of the season. Like, you did pre all star break and last year was that first year where he played really a full season as as a starting guy. So I guess the question that I was proposing was at what point in time. Do you start to get concerned about those players and their numbers? I'm not quite there yet it is April eleventh eight still falls under the category of slow starts for me. But we get another week or so we can have two weeks as all of a sudden may poking around the counter at that point in time. Do you think you look at those numbers and start say this is becoming an issue for the club four one four seven nine nine one six twenty s the Yankee net mortgage talk text line. Bob's the tosa. Hey, bob. Thanks for calling. You're on WTMJ. That. Yeah. You know, what I was gonna let shit about Hegi ever since that is going to say and. That's one of the big things. I always whatever does that home run contest that just checks around their flaying of we haven't been the same guy. Frankly, I face the concern to my right now feigns is all or nothing. I guess another way to look at the birds record right now, though is nobody had a vision is really figured out that both yet and for the birds that have wins right now. And with some of the slow starts that's exit kind of like, well, wait till we get wait till he starts hitting it all cylinders, but this isn't itself though, Saint Louis Chicago. Bullpen pitching, probably as well. So I think we're just saying the tip of the iceberg is the long long long way to go. But I agree with you that an a telephone yesterday. I was every time the bullpen door open. Who's coming out of there today? You know? Yeah. Appreciate the phone call. And I think you make a great point about the bullpen situations across the division the cubs. Bullpen stinks. The cardinals. You know, you have Jordan Hicks, which is nice, but they just sent out race down pirates in reds have not been very good. They've won a few games in a row, but they've had a slow start. The pirates of maybe been the surprise in the division at six and four and their bullpen. As of all the teams of the five teams in the division. I think you can actually make the argument that the pirates bullpen has been the bullpen. That has been most consistent. I don't have the numbers in front of me. Maybe somebody through the bullpen numbers at me. It would look a little bit different. But just from a very auxiliary standpoint and a curse. Standpoint. It does feel like maybe the pirates bullpen has been the bullpen in the division. That has been the most consistent four one four seven nine nine one six twenty s the accurate mortgage, talk and text on. I'm really frustrated about the way baseball is handling some things that they view as issues which are not issues and the way that they're not handling other things, and I was just reminded of how ridiculous some of the decisions baseball can make our earlier today over the last couple of days was something else that they've done. And I'm just I'm frustrated, and I'm going to vent my frustrations to you. So get ready for that brewers weekly continues in a moment here on WTMJ. You've been hearing about stem cells, but what you are hearing are the costs stem cell treatments are very.

"I think there's great trade is going to be the fulcrum as to whether or not this team is competitive this season, or as maybe eight to ten wins more than what we've got in the last several years. Remember? Ever. With all they've done with all the reds have done over. The course of the last six weeks. Have they done enough to garner eighty I'm sorry to garner twenty more wins than what they garnered the last five seasons. Did they pick up with these trades twenty more wins because they gotta get to the high eighties and wins to be looked at as a legitimate contender in the National League central division. And I contend. That it's going to be eighty seven to eighty nine wins. That will win this division this year. It won't be the nineties and there won't be a wild card out of the National League central division. These teams Milwaukee Saint Louis Chicago, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati are going to beat the snot out of each other this season. It is going to be a bloodbath night in and night out. And they'll be so busy in my opinion, beating each other up that will be eighty seven eighty eight eighty nine wins that will win that division. And there will be another division that will produce a couple of Ninety-one teams. And that's where the wild cards are coming from. My opinion two weeks before pitchers and catchers report. So what really did the sunny great trade mean? And how much further do they have to go here either with real mutual or another starting pitcher or whatever to get them back in playoff discussion. Again, have they done enough to make up for the twenty wins. They're going to need to be in contention for the National League central division title. So we'll talk about that today with shares also on the program. I, you know, FC Cincinnati, right? We're less than a month from the opener and they're frolicking in Florida under the sun. And I guess they had a good scrimmage yesterday. And they fought somebody Montreal or some team to a to a one one last week who are these players. I keep hearing that the FC Cincinnati drafted this guy, and they sign this guy. And they did do you know any of these players unless you're hardcore soccer fan. Do you know any of these players where do they come from what happened to the group that was here last year that everybody liked really not good enough to compete at the MLS level? And if they weren't while these players that are coming in now on their heels to compete MLS. Who are they don't know gonna find out Noah Davis writes all about soccer for ESPN dot com.

"They don't play again until Thursday, but it's again against the Nashville predators. They can play their best game and still come up short. I wouldn't be too concerned about the devils just yet. Tim occasional says with the changing of the guard for central division contenders Nashville, Winnipeg, hell, even Colorado. Do you think Saint Louis Chicago might enter a rebuild face? They don't look like they stand a chance with how tough that division is. Well, you saw saying Louis, make the deal with buffalo and they've got so much talent up front. I don't think they have an appetite for rebuild the just to find the goaltending and if they do, I think they can be up there with those. Top teams, Chicago clearly as in rebuild, even though they'd have a lot of talented players you saw last year tapes took a step back and they just couldn't handle it. He's been better so far this year. We'll see what happens with Crawford, but I think Chicago's probably more of a rebuild right now than Saint Louis is Michael Farrell says a lot of kneeland to talk out there. If you're the canes, could you trade a peci for kneeland or while she's a good solid defenceman but you know what I think that makes sense. That's a defense been certainly Toronto can use Carolina would certainly be able to add to the firepower that they already have question is what else would Carolina have to give up? I'm not sure that's going to be nearly enough. Philip says, hi, not a big thing, but I noticed that you've been calling the connects goalie, Mark Anderson. His name is actually Jacob market strum off k. hope you're is better. And I have to say that your twins are adorable. Thank you. Well, sometimes again, talking extemporaneously, it doesn't come out the way I wanted to. But you're right markets Strobe and Nielsen have played very well for Vancouver. So thank you for the correction. Michael silver says, David Quinn said yesterday to things. He talked start again. David Quinn said yesterday that the things he talked to twenty Dangelo about needing to do are things that need to be done in practice in order to crack the lineup. However, what isn't clear are the things Tony knows he needs to do? What do you think they could be? Well, it's it's about being a little bit more responsible in your own end. I mean, that's really what it comes down to here. I haven't seen that much of him because he seemed like he got benched right away, but the there just seems to be better passes. I think they're just better responsibility where he needs to be little things like that. Certainly, David Quinn knows more than I do, but when you hear the things have to be correct and practice, it seems that it's not that he's overwhelmed by the speed of the competition. Now that he's overwhelmed by the physicality, he's just not putting himself in the right positions, and that's certainly something that could be corrected in practice crisis high. Don, which is worse. Another frustrating flyers loss or that there were soundly defeated by Colorado Avalanche team. That in two years went from worst team in the league to possible Cup contenders while the flyers still appear to be mired in mediocrity. Well, Colorado is bad for awhile, right? And they've hit home runs now. Landes Gog was first and it took a while. I think for him to emerge into a star player. I thought they gave him the captaincy way too early. All right. Ranson ends been a great fine for them. McKinnon has as well. Now they figured out the goaltending which is something Philadelphia's trying to do here. But you know the outside of that one year, which I think was the first year coming out of lockout when Philadelphia think was the worst team in the NHL. There hasn't been a lot of just those pieces they've been able to bring in there. Hoping Patrick is going to be that player and it's going to take maybe a little bit more time to see if he can emerge and be that player..
