"Changes again. Highly emotional in leadership recognize that they should not expect everyone to accelerate it at the same level. They do because everybody gets information at different rates and speeds and has things going on in their life that you may not even have any concept or terms of how it impacts how they deal with change. Yeah yeah so as you look forward scott to what's coming up over the course of this this year and beyond what do you think are some of the qualities of leadership that we should be looking to develop right now to meet these times for our team. Well this word will sound like a cliche by munish empathy right. I mean what has happened with the world. The economy people's health loss of friends and family tragedy bankruptcies it's incomprehensible and leaders need to some summon perhaps heretofore unrelatable level of empathy. Wh what is your team member faced with. What kind of insecurity are they challenged with. What's happening in their world. Can they safely bring their whole self to the workplace. Can you halladay transparent and vulnerable conversation with your own fears. Make it safe for them to discuss. What are their passions. What are their fears. What are their dreams. That perhaps had been snuffed out. How can you help reignite their dreams can you find a place for them to deploy them in the company as the leader. You probably have some level of financial or career stability. That perhaps your team doesn't you probably have access to information at. They may not people. Don't quit leaders who love them. People don't quit leaders. Who loved them. People do quit bag leaders and crept cultures but if your leader really feels like you are invested in them you care about them more than just what they can do for your organization. You generally care about them. You typically people an unprecedented level of contribution. It doesn't mean lower. Your standard doesn't mean that they can phone it in doesn't mean that you become your friend. They become a trusted colleague. They know you've got back and they're willing to give you. There is in the process and their heart and their mind. Love that that. It's so good. So i i wanna ask one final question. This is not prepare you for some sorry about that. Todd great What is a good decision that you made in your life. And why was it a good decision. In retrospect no question. Mary my wife. I was single. Talk was forty one. I was a confirmed bachelor. Get married and when i married stephanie. By the way his twelve years my my younger she brought a level of what it's really like to go on vacation was scott miller what it's like to be in a car. Scott miller what. It's like to be on a conference call with scott or at dinner. Scott you get the point. Right is that she wrought by life of self awareness feedback. Bit of a governor if you will. You're going to what you said what you're going where no you're not so for those people who have a significant other partner or spouse. You know what i'm talking about. And i'll tell you i think it's for those people who are single. Perhaps they are divorced or widowed or they're not in a relationship. I think the older trench we get in our habits. We think we're funnier than we are. We think we're collaborative than we are. We think we're nicer than we are in these. These personality traits become ingrained habits..

"Let's add to San Diego. That's for the New York Yankees, I think are still getting a couple of runs in before game two of them channel series against the Rays tonight. And that is where we find Scott Miller of Bleacher Report and Turner. Also, of course MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM. You can follow Scott at Scott Miller M B L Scott appreciate the time man. What's it like to just having watched San Diego beat the Cardinals in a series last week now watch the Padres had Texas package and you get the Yankees and rays and there's a bunch of baseball in Southern California and going to be a bunch of more baseball in Southern California. How are things going and San Diego for Scott Miller Chris a couple of thoughts come to my one it's weird. It was really weird watching the Yankees and Tampa Bay to East Eastern teams playing unimportant log. M a playoff game in Petco Park, and I know I'm not alone in that. I mean I heard some from all kinds of colleagues around, you know saying even how weird it was watching Oakland and Houston Dodger Stadium yesterday, and of course today, you know, we're going to get more of that. You know, this week is the National League games get going in Texas. So, you know, it was really weird the Yankees playing in Petco and and to your point about in my backyard. Yeah, the other weird thing about it is I don't think I'm well I'm trying to going back I guess the I don't think I covered the Padres the last time they were in the playoffs in 06. I think I was on the road at a different Series. So let's just say in twenty years of living here in Northern San Diego County where I do. I have never slept in my own bed more than a couple of nights off. A month of October and like twenty years or more. So now that's the other weird thing aside from the Yankees playing Petco Park the part the fact that all these playoff games are coming to San Diego and you know, I'm actually in my own bed. That's a weird thing too. And there's no one that can even like kick you up for tickets or anything or bug you turn it down Scott Miller was our guest from Bleacher Report and Turner talking to Major League Baseball postseason on the Chris r a v show on Scoops with Danny mac.com. It's pretty remarkable though. And you know in all seriousness.

"Confidence in intuition, looking around corners, connecting with people recognize the difference between being efficient and being affective, slowing down with people. That this idea that people are a company's most valuable asset, it's total bunk. It's not true. People are not a company's most valuable asset. It's the relationships between those people. That are every organizations killer APP because Andy can be a black belt in six segments Scott can have a Rhode scholar degree from Oxford, but if Andy and Scott can't get along, we can't go into client meeting together. We can't up each other. We can't complement each other pre. Forgive each other I don't need you. The same goes for sales, right? You can be the best rogue independent sales producer in the company, but if you can't be on time to staff meetings. Meetings you can't coach other people. You can have an abundance mentality and lift others that quite frankly I'd rather take to be performers that our collaborative untrustworthy than one rogue Abra former. That's out I don't see her for another two or three weeks, and I've been through enough sales cycles sales quarters to stand by that. Yeah, I think there's something in what you were saying to that I. Think should be brought out. Is is that you can't rely on the company? To provide that for you. Take responsible as you said you had nine different disruptions, and you've reinvented yourself I look at my career. I've done at least nine times, but I took the initiative do that. I sat and read books at night I listened to tapes in. My car is is driving us as learn how to sell you know all the Earl Nightingale tapes and Zig Ziglar gave this is. Yeah I wasn't handed that I I. Did it I think there's this perception. That somehow. The tools to enable you to become to achieve at a certain level army handed to you and I. Think the lesson I. I I've always my career and I think you've experiences while as. You've find those tools yourself and enable yourself as much as you expect from the company. Andy I could not believe believe believe that or support you anymore. You just set it in. This isn't a a diss on any generation or any demographic at all I. Think you have to take control of your own career. You have to be responsible for your brand. Reputation take responsibility for your own professional development. Don't blame the company. Don't blame the culture. Don't blame the leaders I. Don't blame anybody for any of my. I own every aspect of my outcome in life I am responsible for that I. Always Kick Myself Out of the job before I'm too stale in. It I always in one year a headed the boot I've seen too many people including inside Franklin Covey that overstay their job because it's good enough. It's comfortable when people are talking about it right and eventually they have to have a little bit of an awkward conversation. No, no, no, don't put your boss in that position. You take responsibility for your own role in you. Disrupt your self when it's time for you to move on. I interviewed Whitney Johnson a few months ago. She wrote a book called just that disrupt yourself. She's coming on in a couple of weeks I. Wish Yeah Great Great Interview and Whitney talks about how you know the average life span. Most people have for a job is about three. Three years the did it. Did it mean for a company or for culture or for an industry, but I think the more people take responsibility for win. Are you getting stagnant? And how much of that is your job to constantly reinvent your skills? Educate yourself train yourself I. Mean Franklin Covey I can't take last time I've had some professional development. I'm an executive officer. I'm empowered to. Do It on my own, but. My. CEO's asking me to read the Wall Street. Every day is an asking me to read fortune and Forbes and Fast Company and INC and wire. That's my job right so to ask me to a plane and go to the role business form. Everyone can afford to get on the plane, but I think people need to like to your point. Own Your career. Dammit, an own your own trading and had hope for the best. In your organization, but take responsibility I would never complain about somebody else investment in me just a mindset. No, no, I am. Scott Inc and my job is responsible for all of my actions and all of my outcomes, and if somebody else offers me something then icing on the cake love. Right we'LL SCOTT INC time.

You never really perfect Edison before and. Yeah we all make mistakes that we're better off if you said vulnerable and came clean on them. It's very confessional, I'm a Catholic. So that was easy for me right so easy to. Write down what I've done wrong. It wasn't meant to be a tell all or you know. Literary vomit by any means that I share some successes, and there are the occasional success story I. had lots of success stories, but I believe they'll softly. We all learn more from our mistakes from our message from watching other people's messes. I actually learn more from seeing people fail and get back up and try again. That I had trying to replicate something. Someone did really well I think that's been my learning. Learning Journey, so I wrote the book as a gift to hopefully every leader that would like to avoid some of the pitfalls I've had you know now. The age fifty two than some not as old as others, but had a pretty i. successful career by many measures ensure in a public company and I've learned a lot not not to mention being around. You know a lot of fairly famed. Fought leaders in an author so I admit to be a help a tome. That would be relatable. Raw Real I thought too many leadership books are academic and there may be professor. They're written by people who is card to relate to and I wanted to write a relatable book I. Think you succeeded in that I mean one of the key things i. think as you look read through the book is. Is that you people have different trajectories in the career? And you know US using example and maybe use myself an example as Pad, pretty good success at a pre early age, and then you find you find yourself in these. These management roles these leadership roles. And your job competence outstrip cheerleaders competence. Welcome to my entire career right and and I think this is really common. And and so we in sales you came through the sales sales rank. Is? There's always this trope about you know. Hey, don't promote your best seller to be a manager. Because oftentimes now they can't do it. Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah. But surf forgetting the aspect that. Yeah. There's that management thing, but here's the leadership thing which is separate. From managing. And so yeah, can I rip on that? Yeah, go ahead, please. Yeah, I think there's I think there's great inside than what you said is that principal doesn't always apply? Here's what I've learned Andy much of it. You just said in a very succinctly as I think too often, organizations promote people for the wrong reasons we lure people into leadership roles versus lead them in. We promote we promote the. The the best individual performance, right, the most efficient, dental hygienist or the most creative digital designer or the most. Revenue, producing salesperson. We do that all the time. Why think there's great risk that I was a classic example of the highest producing revenue producer in my division so naturally at some point I'm promoted as the sales leader. When rarely do the skills the competencies that make you a great sales producer? Make you a great sales leader that there's very little correlation right I mean. If you look at my Gallup. Strengths finder might to top strengths are competition and significance right I, love to compete I love to win, allowed to be top of the scoreboard crush all the measures when the president's Club right all the bonuses. I liked the limelight on me focusing attention, those are not bad competencies for a great salesperson. I think generally they're horrible competencies for a sales leader sales leaders need to be. Patient. And empathic and need to recognize their job is to get work done within through other people skilled transfer coach mentor to teach other people to build capacity to check their own ego, and take joy invalidation in the success of other people. Your job is not to Russian and saved the day or save the sale or save someone front themselves. You might save sale today, but you're building capacity. You're not building the ability for other people to you know all achieved their own numbers, so I think I think a key differentiator is when you're considering promoting a sales person into a sales, leadership role, or for that matter anybody into a sales leadership role. Recognized the science shows the average age, someone receives their first promotion into management. IS THE AGE thirty h article by this year ago? And the average age that same person receives their first leadership training. Age Forty two. V, I was GONNA say fifty. Yeah forty two right, so I mean what you've got is he's otherwise you know well intended high producing people wrecking havoc across cultures and doing damage across people, not because there are sociopaths because they're bad, people know their Scott Miller their high, producing well intended people that don't know how to lead other people. They don't know how to get somebody else to achieve the same results. They think their job is to turn everybody else into their clone, or there are many me, so go out. You know killing people's self-confidence trying to turn them into. Versions of themselves and not every case I think easy way to turn the tide on. That is the next time you WANNA. Promote someone into a leadership role. Be It sales or otherwise sit down and have a crucial high stakes. Hey, andy as you know your salesperson and we're considering promoting you to sales leader. Let me. Tell you Andy on this chart pad behind me up drawn a T. chart on the left side. These are the seven things that you really will eighty quite frankly your best to class. You crush these as a sales person and. These seven things. Really have to stop doing four of them the day you become a sales leader. Got You here isn't going to take you there and here on the other side of the teach art. Andy are nine new leadership competencies that you currently quite frankly don't possess. That's okay, no problem we trust you. We're going to invest in you. We're GONNA have a series of high courage conversations with you and coach in real time, but literally you will need to stop doing these four or five things and begin doing these seven or eight things quite quickly, not tomorrow, but in the coming days and weeks and months..

As a same for server brave booked right because that management mess. Was You right? It's true and not in every case, the majority of the book is about after thirty years as a leader in a very prominent liberal ship development firm. I decided to write a book about how hard leadership is and how it's not for everyone. Not everyone should be a leader. Heck. I'm not sure. Indiana should have been a leader of people. But I am and I have been I've done some damage and I've created some success, and so I decided to write a book that would help others determine. Should they be a leader of people, and if they are or they want to be here's thirty challenges, you're GONNA face, and most of them for me were messes I think that generally speaking vulnerability quote, you bravery, but I'd say vulnerability is A. A, leadership competency, and as a leader of people, the more you can own your own mess because I don't know of a leader who doesn't have some mess going on or parents or neighbor or mother-in-law, our son-in-law, the more you can own your mess more, you make it safe for others to own up to. There's in move toward success. Yeah, I mean what you're saying is that? I saw perfectionism possible. An. Any wrong, but especially in leadership I mean 'cause leadership is just an extension of of whoever's humans are human conduct, and we're never perfect. Or far from I, don't know any leaders. That's even close to being perfect. newly-arrived four and I still have leaders that I report to that you know, have blind spots and self aware as we all hope they would be in in ever ever great talent, so the book really was inspired because I was I host to podcast like you called on leadership with Scott Miller I was interviewing Stephen Emaar. He's son of the famed Dr Covey. He's been. Has No kidding no well and wrote the book speed of trust. And I was interviewing Stephen, of course, a friend and colleague of mine and said Stephen Did.

You know what I never had much to say. I was always kind of a behind the scenes executive officer. Chief Marketing Officer Sales. Vice President Sales Manager General Manager then I realized. I do have some things to say now, so I wrote. This book did extraordinarily well and its first printing. It's already second printing. and. I'm quite delighted with how well it's resonated.

Not Remember it when we got sent to the hotel by the publisher before the view. Mad At our publisher at the time, and we found out that they had paid for everything including our room service and bar bill. We decided to go to the bar in our friends over and have a party.

"Super high quality next level shit that is on TV nowadays and different providers like dude. There's a period of time there. In that period of time was the early ought where HBO was. Much further ahead of everybody else. It is fucking unreal they. Window. They had the sopranos. The wire band of brothers is the Pacific sex. And you said was that that can give a fuck about that, but it was huge. All this shit was in the same six feet under dead blood by. Making anything like yeah, that's that's the key right there. I still think that like when he come I. Trust Hbo to that now. It's largely because of that period of time, but like I trust HBO so much more than all the other ones and I still think that they've got more hitters now than anybody else does. However yeah, as you said, they were literally like the only motherfuckers in the game, and they had clucking everything. Yeah, got it work because I don't think we end up with a game of thrones. For. Sure that doesn't work they. Money, in the cloud, and the face to put. They also were putting out great Hbo Movies Back In just got there watching I. Don't know if you've ever seen sixty one. The Billy Crystal directed movie about Rodriguez. Yeah Roger Madison. Mickey mantles Rice to him by the way at during that movie afterwards, independent research I found out Roger. Marris isn't in the baseball hall of fame. What why and I? Don't know how much of a fuck about baseball and I know Roger. Maris's and I know about home runs, and all that so I think. The thing is the thing is he also wants some gold gloves initiate. It wasn't like he just had that one good year, so they're like well. Technically, he didn't have a hall of fame career, but like dog. You know you do take Babe Ruth's record from him I. Don't give a fuck what else you did your hall input, but he's not. He's not in the hall of fame. Man was like. Like Babe Ruth stands being petty about it back in the day. Maybe honestly yeah the I. Mean because I don't know. The committee consisted of the, but it was like you know AP routers. Debate probably was a bunch of people like you didn't really you know there's Asterik by Your Shit Fuck you I'm not a big baseball guide, but my understanding of their hall of fame processes that it's particularly like. In political and stuff way less objective than the other ones right? Yeah, and it's Sorta like you got one sort of like. Political Transgression in the world of baseball and I'm not talking about Pete rose that one's obvious just like. More piddly shit and they'll just decide gaffe forever because of it. Yeah, yeah, it's it's. It's which way it to. May seems way more political just because it's the only one i. ever hear of some bullshit about I. Never Really Hear Bullshit about of course I I don't ever hear nothing about the NBA. Hall of fame, maybe dirt on. A. Football Hall of fame. Yeah right yeah I know a little bit about that I'm. Just, reading about Roger Merits and Honestly I cut my high started glazing over because it's a really long article and my conclusion without actually reading it now.

"Thin. Victim of other people's. Views about me. I share a lot. How in sixth grade the principle of my elementary school Mr? Wiley I started member forty years later. Decided one data hierarchically organized the class into danced, middle and slow. They called it. That advanced middle slow. And Scott. Miller got the short Straw for a full couple of years I was in slow science low mass, low reading slow music. How is their slow effing music? And so I was raised to believe that I was Kinda slow not very smart. Can you imagine the damage that did on my on my self esteem? My Self worth myself confidence. My Sat score the college that I went out to. And so. I'm very mindful of what we say and do. The impact of has not just on our children. But on the people work for us. Well one of the things I've said for years and I really believe with all my might unnecessary. We will get a love multigenerational families, but one of the things I say is if you think you're a leader. Hat! Let me ask you a simple question. How do you treat these people respect fully like your parents go. What do you mean not talking about talking down to them and talking about being the example to them? How are you stepping up to be a parent? Who is the example because whatever you think you're teaching your people? The number one thing teaching them is by demonstration. My stepfather said don't ever smoke while having a cigarette dangling out of his mouth, and scrutinise I, because the smoke was going in his eye, and every member of my family, except except me, but every other member of my family became a chain smoker I've never smoked in my life, but they all became James. Mucus why because that was the demonstration polarized? But that was the demonstration and leaders are often doing this what we're not. We're expecting them to do what we're not willing to do. And that vulnerability you know what you put forward. That is so important that vulnerability of listen. I get it because I struggled. is so important because you. You talked early on in the interview about being. Really. Not being the greatest leader, not really knowing how to do it, and a lot of it was based on your insecurities that you got from their sally terrible situation that then, and this is what happens and job is lead is to unveil I. mean sending my my clients. My job is not to give yourself I'm GonNa give you tons of strategy and technique and all those things, but that's not actually my job and they go. What do you mean job is to tear away everything? That's false. Actually make you peel. Peel off nonsense like that stupid headmaster, said all. Will you go into the slow? Let's peel it off because it's bull and reveal the magnificent dragon that you are so you can breathe fire in the world and take flight is a much more powerful thing because everybody has that our job is to find it, and sometimes you can't find in a prison because they're in the wrong place and you got to say you know what you gotTa go Scott Nov because that's the place where you're gonNA shine because your.

"Number, one role in life is provider for my family, and I'm sure some people will have an opinion about that, but I had decided I have a wife who is made a decision to be a fulltime mom, so she's not developed the skills the last twelve years to go out and earn a strong living. She could if she chose to ice for young boys that are dependent upon for everything, so my number, one role in life is provider to my family love safety security resources. Dude Algo go work one hundred hours a week at McDonald's if I have to. Tell you. What are you doing? Say That again while you're there. What are you doing? Well. I'm doing the best job I can in the moment because I might get promoted to be manager. What I'm also doing I'm serving everyone around me because I might meet someone who sees me being abundant in hardworking, and they choose to promote me into their organization. I might be growing my skills. I'm showing gratitude for the job. I have I might be thinking about applying at ups in the evening. I'm doing a lot of things the number one thing I'm. I'm doing why I'm. There is I'm doing my job. I was hired to do because people will watch me the manager, the owner, the customers, the dry through somebody's GonNa Pluck me out there and join me to their company because they see me being the best hamburger flipper possible so what I'm not jeopardizing that job, but I'm constantly thinking about what could be next for me so now let me ask you what your purpose because you said. That was number one. Yeah No, I think my purpose, and again you know I kind of dislike people that always tell me what their purposes. Job Because I'm kind of jealous. I think my purpose is to race three boys that are full of integrity that represent the religious principles that were teaching in our family that are kind that are abundant that respectful that are gentlemen that don't tease and bully people that work hard that contribute I think my purpose in life now is to. Be a good husband to my wife. and to be a role model for these three boys, I never would have thought that a ago. I didn't want that. I never wanted to be a father. I met some Smart Hot Lady in the gym and I fell in love. We got married and she wanted kids. So that was part of the deal and I think my purpose in life is to be a father I. Really do now the reason I'm asking you is because anti gloved you hadn't. Hadn't sort of clarified, and because everything you said. Showed me. The. You're on purpose because what I always say to people is. If you do that to me and I've got to go work in McDonalds flipping burgers. And I said it'd be anything going to do and they go. I don't know I'm going to do exactly what I do. This is who I am. This is where I live from I. Live from my Dragon Fire. The bed of vehicle is a podcast bed. Vehicle is a state from you. Speak Up. A better vehicle is a book about a vehicle as my articles, but if that's all removed and I've got to flip burgers on still going to do it, and what you what you demonstrated insane Wallin narrative isn't all that is exactly aligned with that purpose, and that's what we forget. That's how we don't. When we do that work of really getting self awareness around well, what is my values one of my non-negotiable maxims? What is my dragon fire when we get to that? Then, he doesn't matter what's going on in the world. That's why it does goes away because I can moments of being freaked out just like anybody else. But I don't live there anymore. But I can remember my twenty S. poop would hit. Feces would hit the fan and I would live that. I would live in that space for way too long. Now heads and I immediately hose it offering okay, that kind of sucked now. What let's move on does let me tell you. Maybe remind you why. You are so influential because you just took a podcast where I was the guest as quote, some leadership expert author. You just turned this into a coaching moment for me. You just reminded me that my job does not define who am. That my purpose and my values are provided to my family. And you just reminded me that if I get fired my job tomorrow, that isn't crush my identity. Because my identity is provided my family and husband to my wife, and it might be flipping. Burgers may be working at ups. It might be my boys. Don't care if they're number Sadi's or Subaru or Kia? They just want love, and they WANNA be. They want to be protected, and and so you you give me a gift in the midst of you interviewing me. This is why you are such an in demand coach, my friend, thank you very very kind. Kind Scott through. We have coming already to the end of time together and I really appreciate it, and what you've offered has been extraordinarily valuable. I want to. Take, a little bit in a different direction for a minute. Tell us about Scott Miller the kid. What were you like as a kid? Insecure Painfully.
"scott miller" Discussed on The Dan Patrick Show
"Godly then for Dan. The danettes today got a big story out of the NFL. Reggie Bush saints a pretty interesting things. Got that coming up in a few minutes but joining us now on the hotline normally he'd be joining us to talk about where the Major League baseball season is at first two months of the season. Whatever Big Memorial Day quadruple header? We have instead. It's about the return. You can follow me on twitter at Scott Miller. Bb L. that Scott Miller bb L. Scott Miller friend of the show. Mlb columns for bleacher report and Turner Sports. Scott How's it going man? Good Jason in Doug a Happy Memorial Day so as we sit right now instead of talking about the Games. We're talking about getting ready to come back. Where are you as far as when people you've been talking to win? Actually we could first of all get a decision on when baseball what they're going to agree to come back and then what would happen right after that you know. I think the decision as usual won't come as quick as people would like you know tomorrow i. The next week to ten days is going to be big tomorrow. The owners are present players with a financial proposal. You know they met two weeks ago to begin the latest negotiations. You guys have heard all about the health proposals. The players and owners have been kicking around you know about. You know what the protocols are going to be. If and when game comes back they moved through quite a few of those But now comes the money part and I think in the end the two sides will get together because I just think too much is at stake that both sides already losing so much money this year. Obviously you know if you play you. Get at least some of that back. Plus there's pressure you know nationally. I mean everybody wants sports to come back. Everybody wants a game coming back. That's You know negotiations negotiations and you know th the financial part begins this week and you know. I think if you're talking spring training par to beginning June tenth to fifteenth somewhere in that range. Which is what they would like. Then you're going to have to have an agreement hammered out sometime around June first or the first few days in June. If you go much beyond that then the spring training part has to be pushed back then. The proposed opening day of the first week of July has to get pushed. Back and the whole trickle down effect begins I so Scott. How long do you think it takes? These teams legitimately be ready Rela ready is probably a relative question I mean you know pitchers obviously the big thing. I'd say three weeks pro preferably they'll have three weeks spring training part too but even at that. I'm not sure you know I. I don't know you're not gonNA see starting pitchers ready to go seven or eight innings out of the gate so I I think even with in a perfect scenario right now they come back to spring training like I say mid June you know squeeze in maybe three weeks at the most of spring training I think the hitters will be fairly ready but even after that you know you'll see tag team pitching staffs You know if you know assuming the game goes back on field early July. In other words you'll have starting pitchers maybe four or five innings six at the most. And then it'll be a reliever in a reliever in reliever and that's why rousers we're going to expand at twenty six this year twenty six players per team. Probably when all is said done once they negotiate. You'RE GONNA see rosters of thirty thirty one thirty two and most of those extra players be pitchers in. It'll be because of what I just said because after three weeks starting pitchers won't quite be back up to speed and you'll have some extra pitchers on each staff. Scott how much of the comeback is being pushed due to pressure of seeing sports return? Because the one thing. I'm seeing from from baseball players. That's different from the other. Sports is the big question about health and making sure everything is okay for us for people. Come to the Games for the workers I've seen that more from baseball players than anybody else is. Is the pressure to push baseball. Coming back maybe. What's what's keeping this as a halt right now as the players. Try to figure out how much they're ready to come back at this point. I think you're Jason. I think everybody wants to play. I think the reason you've seen the health component talked about more from baseball players than and other sports. I think it's two things one You know baseball could be the first sport to come back so it's legitimate. Health Concerns You know I don't WanNa diminish that but so so that's that's part of that but I think the second reason you've seen some talk about health from players is You know when was this about three weeks ago that that it leaked that owners one of the players to go? Do Revenue Sharing Split. The player started with these salary cap and they want to do that and things got ugly. Well I think the that's why the owners when negotiations the owners lead with the health component. Not with a financial component and I think basically like any negotiations and this is really touchy because obviously This pandemic has been horrible for the country. Horrible for everybody. But if I if you just look at the negotiations on their own a lot of it always comes down to spend right like the the players WanNa take their righteous ground. The owners want to take their righteous ground and the players aren't GonNa win if they say you need to give us our money. We're not taking that big of a hit but they they can get more public Opinion on their side if they talk the health issue so again I'm not I'm not diminishing health issue at all. I'm not saying that the players aren't concerned with a health issue. It is a legitimate and they do want to make sure that everything's safe and sound when they come back but that second part is also why. I think you've heard about the health from the players because they ain't GonNa win any any public opinion battles if they just talk about money Scott. The money is not just the money. It's all the Preston right. Tony Clark has to get this thing done right. Because he's under an immense amount of pressure for the next CBA. Which is you know less than a year off. I mean there's there's a bunch of different. It's not tell me if I'm wrong here. It's not just hey. Can we get you back on the field playing? And what is the appropriate going rate for players to be playing in empty stadiums? What sort of pressed into the set for the new collective bargain agreement and the players are already operating under. This thought that we got destroyed last time. We gotta get back some ground this time. Yeah and that that factors into it as well dog. There's no question because in in it in a normal world which my goodness it's hard to remember that now isn't it normal world with no pandemic the basic agreement between the players and owners it? The the current one expires after next season. Twenty twenty one season so on a normal calendar this would be about the time the players and owners would be just starting to meet 'cause you know they start meeting more than a year out so when it comes time to negotiate the next base agreement so they would just be starting to have some meetings. That wouldn't exactly be pressurized yet because they be staking out their territory and there'd be saying a year you know we we've got a year and a half or whatever it is now until we got to figure this out all of a sudden you're right though the pandemic His blown everything so now the players and owners all of a sudden have to negotiate something rapidly and with the basic agreement that last year and a half or less. Ex- away expiring So it's almost like they got. You know barely have time to do this before they have to get onto the next one and yeah I mean if if if the players give too much in this one that they feel like The that'll put them behind as they start for the next basic agreement which is GonNa come pretty much the negotiations to start right the time they finish getting this year's done and so yeah it's it's a very Slippery slope for for both sides but you're right especially the players because they feel like they got played last time on twitter at Scott Miller. Bb L. That is at Scott Miller. Bb L. National Baseball columnist for bleacher report Turner. Sports Scott appreciate your time with us. This morning we'll talk to you soon. Have a great day you all the listeners. Stay safe and healthy and Joyce burgers or something out there for Memorial Day. Thanks Scot appreciate it buddy so doug well let me ask you this because obviously listen. Scott said Memorial Day. Big Day in baseball you know. How much is your son missing baseball right now a lot. I mean like you know you know right. Now he'd be missing flag football baseball and basketball. So yeah he's he's not. He's not not too keen on not seen his buddies and playing sports. Because my daughter Mrs Softball but at the same time it's like it's really hard for me to even get her out of the house to do something like I feel like the they go. They go through that they go through a little bit of depression and you gotTa Find Different Ways. He had a couple meltdowns over like yeah. Hey I'm not. I'm lacking motivation. Normally I'm Su- a motivated guy. I mean look what would help with us. We've started back some basketball workouts. We started back having. I have one kid over to to shoot He is like a shoe shooting machine and issue with and you know playing baseball if he plays with does some of the buddy. It's way better but I get it. Yeah they do the most active kid. Suddenly you take away that interaction with other people and they become inactive and sometimes they become a little depressed twitter out. How a FRESCA Doug Gottlieb show Jason Smith GOTTLIEB for Dannon the Danettes they? We'll have more baseball coming up later on in the show but something we talked about a few minutes ago. Deliver on that tees as we say in the radio business as Reggie Bush did an interview with playboy which is where all our big interview should come from Reggie Bush interview with playboy. That is just hitting the Internet now and he talked about how concerned he was about the. Ncaa's recent support of a player. Endorsement Plan saying that paying college athletes were their names and likenesses is going to destroy some people quote. Guidance is the one thing that young athletes coming through the college system. Miss on so much I missed on it. They're about to start paying college. Athletes this is something that has never been experienced before and it's going to destroy some people if they're foundation is not in the right place. Now I get what he's saying in a vacuum it. Listen hey you give money to kids if they're not ready to handle it then it's it's difficult but really you know anytime you give kids money whether they're nineteen twenty or twenty one if they're not ready to handle it they're not ready to handle it. What do you think about what the Reggie Bush has said so far? I think there's a lot of wisdom and I think he you know I I just do. It's it's I mean. Look there's the first the simple question of You know are they going to pay the taxes on it? Because they're going to be taxed on on money they receive And so are they gonNA pay taxes on. What happens to their scholarships they is there a chance that those are tax or other benefits they have our tax. That's the first thing but not just the idea of taxing but the responsibility of doing it and the punishment if you don't pay your taxes but yeah just this idea you. I mean I think Mike. Tyson said it best Years ago he said like you WanNa see a tragedy take kid from nowhere. Give them all the power in the world all the money in the world and no guidance. And there you go. It's like a Greek tragedy. And I think that's a little bit of what Reggie's talking about is like we all think of it. I okay. You'll get how much money from a local car dealership to make an appearance and forget about the the pandemic which may eliminate some of this for year two anyway. But let's say you get it one idea the responsibility of will you pay the taxes on that? You need to pay on whatever money you get to. You're gonNA spend it right. Go like when I was in my twenties if I got a thousand bucks like probably got rims and tires again. Rims and tires in and some gear. So you know like you just it..
"scott miller" Discussed on Dose of Leadership
"It's two thirty to leave the firm to people reaching out to me wanting to give me equity wanting to recruit me. Why do I stay? My boss Loves Radio Bob Whitman. He loves me. He loves my family he loves my wife loves my kids. He loves he loves my future. He cares about me. We argue like father and son right at the end of the day I report to him. Were very different people. We have very little in common. We see a lot of things similarly some things very differently. But I don't leave because he loves me. It's to your point loving romantic way or an inappropriate H. Our way as people don't quit leaders who loved them. People don't crow go across the street for one more dollar an hour or one more percent commission or a Free Soda Machine if they know that their boss genuinely cares about them including giving them high courage feedback discussing in discussable 's coaching them. But they're blind spots. Is it all just about praise adoration when you love someone you are willing to risk? Not being liked absorbs eight. Gosh I share something that I see in you that is causing you and others paint. That's love yeah. You're absolutely right and I think when you when you do come from a place of love you can have those difficult conversations. Like I've said this many times you know. My wife won't let me go out the door. If my fly is down or I got bad breath. It may be uncomfortable to tell me. But she's telling me because she loves me she doesn't want me to be embarrassed. And so that's why you can have the difficult conversations because you love this person right. Said you married married way above my pay grade. That's for sure that's for sure. Yeah so I don't know what's next for you. I mean we've got the seven habits coming out. Your book is phenomenal. Aj should be mandatory reading from my dose leadership listeners. So you need to go out. And that's what I love that. Thanks I really do like you I. I wrote that book because I wanted to be relatable in real and raw. I think there is an overabundance of aspirational leadership. Books written from academic. I don't I don't I don't blame them. I just don't know that they've hired and fired another. They've had you know brutally tough conversations around you need were in a sprint or your never taking responsibility for your actions of CEO's write books. I can't wait to Bob Eiger. I loved Bob. Eiger book right from Disney but hasn't changed my day to day operational style because I don't have his job so the book did extremely well. I've rewritten it's been released now with new insights and some better stories more stories. I've written a few more books. I Co authored. A book called. Everyone deserves a great manager. I am running a new book called Master Mentors like you. I'm privileged to host Abroad Global podcast interview celebrities authors. Each week looks coming out. Next year I will write more books in the mess to success arena. I'll write a man. Marketing Master Brand Success Job Mass to career success. Communication mass parenting mass. I've got about nine. That will come out over the next decade or so. So in the meantime I'm loving working with Franklin Covey Excited about the books have in the pipeline and the firm. If anybody's looking for US leadership development partner could not speak more highly of the competence and character inside of this firm. It's why I say well I think you hit on a couple of your points and I know that's why I loved your book because it does come a place of a pragmatic authenticity that that I think is lacking in a lot of leadership books. You're right I mean you go to any leadership section and I get like you said thirty to forty requests for people to come on the show a day and there's nothing against I want to help everybody because I love this topic of leadership in but you know there's something about again pragmatic authenticity that I think is is is inherent in your style. So I'm very appreciative. Thanks I don't know that I could have written this book in my thirties. I could this book in my early forties. I think it took me. It took me a decade to really understand. Should I have been a leader of people not sure I should I think in some cases I've been extraordinary other cases? I've probably damaged some people because I was so insecure and so focused on myself and my own brand and moving up. Yeah and I hope. The book is relatable to others me. So you don't have to feel shame a as you said something early on is everybody not. Everybody should be a leader of people. But I I agree with that sentiment however I think if somebody has the passion and desire and the willingness to be a leader do you think. Do you think they're capable? I guess at that point when you say yeah for sure. Yeah Yeah no question. People ask me. Are you born a leader? No you're born a human. No one is born a leader. It's an idiotic question. You are absolutely capable of building leadership skills but let me tell you. It's not worth for everyone. You will never become an anesthesiologist. I don't care what as I don't have the aptitude. I don't want to pay the price. I'm not going to become a commercial airline pilot again. I don't the aptitude I don't understand thrust and drag and weight and lift or whatever the floor. Sorry Matt massacred them. That's your world not mine. Not everyone should be a leader of people because I think to promote the individual producer. They get into leadership and they realized. Oh crap I hate this enemy and then they move out of it and now the organization has lost their top producer and their leadership pipeline. So yes. Can anyone learned to be a leader. I think probably but I'm not sure it's worth the ride. I think there's a lot of very highly valued individual contributors whose advocation is not their vocation. They just want to come to work from eight to six give it their all create stuff build stuff contribute and they don't want to lead people. I think that's just fine. Yeah agree and it is the age old problem right is just the skills and the attitude that makes you the best salesman on the on the force and then what you see the organization news like Oh well. Let's make sally sue the sales person the leading all the time. At least the salesforce and the skill set to be the best salesperson's completely different immune this the leader of the salespeople. Right thank you Richard Fact. No correlation right. My two biggest drinks on strengths finder our competition and significance. These are actually pretty good strengths to have as a salesperson. I Win I WANNA compete. Be the top of the scoreboard. I liked the limelight are not bad skills to have. As a commission based sales person. Those are horrific skills to have as a sales leader being competition for attention especially for people who are player coaches and a lot of organizations. The sales leader also has the real nut their own. It's right all that's right and that's all horrible misalignment right. I don't think enough organizations understand the process of developing leaders if you are if you are in organizational role in any role at all in one of your jobs is to identify future leaders. Sit them down. Here is how it goes Thanks for being the top salesperson. Seven quarters in a row. We're thinking about promoting you to be a sales leader when you tell you. Richard HERE'S A. T. Chart on this side over here. Here are eight things you do. Well that Richard. You do them so well. It's why you're the top salesperson Richard. If you were to become a sales leader you will need to stop doing five of these tomorrow right because these competencies will not serve you well and by the way Richard on this side of the chart. Here's nine competencies that quite frankly you don't possess yet we think you can but you're gonNA have to learn these nine new behaviors pretty quickly not overnight but like in the coming days and weeks and months so if you wanNA leave these things behind and pick these things up. Let's keep talking but if quite frankly if you're comfortable running with these strengths and just asked great too by the way. Here's what it looks like from eight to eight eight. Am Ashi. You'll be both was more like six. Am To him right. Here's what it looks like. Having these high courage conversations in real time coaching and solving problems and its leadership sox it really does and leadership is not day. Trading ship is buying a home is sitting on it for twenty years and selling it for some prophet right. It's a long game. It's grimy it's gritty dirty. It's done so listen you can't even you can't even see the benefits and sometimes the reality is you may not even realize your legacy impact until well after you're gone mostly. Gosh it's so true I feel like you're my twin from another mother. I'll be the airport all the time and someone will someone will stop me. Someone I terminated and they'll say to me Scott then they'll then they'll we call and say you know what you were a real jerk. Sometimes and then they'll say. Scott you're the one leader in my whole life. They had the courage to talking about my blind spots. Thank you for that because that has really helped me transform MICR ten twelve fifteen years later long game. You're absolutely right. Yeah no I knew this a new. You would be a good guy to talk to you. I just from reading your stuff and again being connected with you on social media we share a lot of the same.

"scott miller" Discussed on Dose of Leadership
"Compensation Fund conversation with Scott Miller executive vice president of thought leadership at Franklin Covey. Here Scott so excited to finally have you on my show. Welcome to dose of Leadership Richard. My pleasure thank you for the platform. We've been connected on Lincoln. It's crazy I literally get about thirty to forty requests today for people come on my show. it's hard for me to filter through. But you were on the guys. I wanted to talk to longtime ago and I think that's why connected with young linked in a few years ago. I mean we're all busy and and finally said you want to reach out to this guy and we were going back and forth and finally one of your Pr. Assistance helped coordinate this together and finally glad that we're I duNno after a couple of years we're finding together talking about leadership. I love that you said I have several PR assistance. I'm big man. I love the organization that you had Stephen Covey junior on my show longtime ago when the show was brand new and we talked about the seven habits way back when and it was certainly fun having him on and To have you on is is great. I love the organization. I Love Your Book Management Mass. I think it's just a talk about the thirty things you talked about in the book or something we I talk about on the show and half or the last seven years I love your idea of authenticity. The humility getting the out there all of that stuff. How get started in in in leadership? How did it become such a hot topic for you? Well so I started my career at the Disney Development Company. I'm from central Florida and so I spent four years at a Disney. They invited me to leave a gracious wakeup Disney. You know I was twenty six. The Franklin Covey Company recruited me because they had worked with me on some Disney projects. Oddly enough and I've been to Utah and love the fact that it was the opposite of Florida. No humidity four seasons neon no billboards it's like a paradise for Guy From. Orlando so here. I am this young single Catholic boy moving to Provo. Utah do the math right Catholics. The priest and me WanNa lovely latter-day Saints Right. That was advocating ride early on. But you know. I joined the Franklin Covey Company because I liked the people who worked there. I met the people seem by people. They are great people in here. I am twenty five years later. Worked on up to the organization. I don't think that I should have been a leader of people early on. I think a lot of people I was lured into leading people and I think I did a lot of damage. Yeah I think I created a lot of havoc and I think it wasn't until probably my late forties. I'm now fifty one that I really became an effective leader and still have bouts of it right so I wrote a book about my own leadership journey rocky a mess. I did a lot of great things and a lot of bad things. Nothing illegal or unethical or immoral sometimes close probably but Never crossed the line dramatically. But I wrote the book I was passionate around talking about not. Everyone should be a leader of people. But if you're going to be leader people you're going to follow these. You're going to face these challenges. So get ready. Yeah what you said. We're the same age and when you kind of went through that Quick Synopsis. Of Your Journey. I would say the same thing and I got into the Marine Corps early on in my early twenties and and so that was leadership by baptism baptism. But I got to be quite honest with you. I didn't. I don't think I became a fully effective leader like you said until my late forties mid forties late and it was because I had a splat moment in my personal life because I think I look even though I understood the basics of leadership the concepts of leadership in my thirties because you know in the Marine Corps it was all about leadership was still ego driven. If I had to be quite honest and it wasn't even what is in the corporate arena when I worked for sixteen and was very successful in the corporate. Arena I wasn't the same person I guess externally and even I could talk a good leadership game. I wasn't the same in every aspect of my life that makes sense and I did look at leadership almost separate meaning leadership on the corporate side and then personal leadership were two separate things and it sounds almost even embarrassing to say that it wasn't until my forties. I realize that you know that. It's all encompassing right. The leadership principles in your personal life. Everything just all spills over but I mean I know about the only guy. That's that went through that journey. But no I I said it just priority. I think gave each other permission. I think I think if people are generally itself aware but invulnerable in look at their own leadership journey. I think most people would agree that they begin to kind of come into themselves. My mind was my late forties. I was very effective manager. Yeah and my third. Three to managing pipelines using emails hiring and firing in processes when it came to actually like. You've said kind of move outside your own ego understand what your contribution is how you create culture how you know retain attract talent. Was HER LEADERSHIP. Competencies that you learn because you fail and you'll learn human and make mistakes and your have coaches and guides like you said have a splat moment right in your personal life or your smell life. Yeah Nice to know you Richard. Nice to know you to and I think even open your book up a management mess talking about your you know your failures early on in the humility side of it right. I mean it's like even more fine plan. Yeah I sure some doozy's yeah and my wife has convinced. I'll never work again like who's going to hire you going. GonNa have to the author speaker because you know after writing management mess. You're not gonNA corporate job again. Good I don't want WanNa corporate job again right. Had One for twenty five years. It's been a great ride. I'm done with that. Why do you think the seven habits in? Why do you think in particular with this edition? I mean mean. Why is it resonate? I mean I remember reading that way way long ago early in my career I mean. Why is this new edition? One of the biggest. I mean why is it? One of the biggest personal growth and leadership books of all time down a bit of history. Most people know that our company was co founded by Steven Covey. The author of the Seven Habits of highly effective people in its thirtieth year. Sold forty million copies fifty plus languages notebook even close to. I think it's I think several reasons one is. Dr Covey. Spent the better part of almost a decade writing this book. This book was heavily research. She did a hundred year literature review on what made people effective successful great leaders. He kind of uncovered this idea of the personality ethic versus the character ethic. He deeply was a man of faith. He looked at all the religious texts from all the religions including his own and saw all the commonalities people. Read the seven habits will tell you. This is a surprise. It's organized very similarly to the Ten Commandments. If I five commitments are about yourself. The next five but others and the book. Is You know the first three practice free habits are about you in the next four or three about others. So there is a lot of non religious but serve spiritual background to it for generations and thousands of years. So I think he wrote about the principles that govern human behavior. Yeah no he wrote a book called the seven habits of highly effective people. A lot of people call seven habits of highly successful. People are highly efficient. People know that if I have time I can share a learning with you talked about the difference between being efficient and being effective. I think what Steven did was acknowledged that he didn't invent anything. He kinda uncovered truths he named he. Sequenced he modeled. He created a great model for it and then he told stories. There was a great storyteller. He was very self effacing so I think the book has done so well because principles govern whether you want them to or not. Yeah Yeah it's it's Kinda like I do and I think you're right that's why it's been so successful. It's kind of like nobody invented these principles. Nobody invented leadership prince. Well they just exist. It's almost like the law of gravity gravity. They're there for your. You know discovery in there for your your grasping you. Can't you know the Marine Corps Envenom Hubby Foundation? Didn't you know didn't nobody inventive him? They just exist and you're right and named them what you went one thing. He did. Sorry for interrupting you. He named them he does. What Seth Seth Godin does right? Seth Godin famous author and marketer. A good friend of mine. Set names that we all live in. But we're not quite sure how to put context on them. Dr Covey gave a colloquial names. He created a language for people in different industries right engineers working with HR people are artist working with chemist. He gave a common language so people could call things similar names. That's why it's become such a great organizational training program. Yeah one of my favorites in and when I first read it in my twenties and it was. This was mandatory reading when I first joined. The Marine Corps is an. We had an officers reading program and seven habits was was on was one of the first books we had to read and begin with the end in mind and we spent a ton of time on as officers in the Marine Corps because one of the things particularly in the Marine Corps. What what's big is when you look at organization as a whole. Is that the senior leadership they focus on getting the intent out? They drummed into you. That your main focus on your main job is to maniacally where we're taking this and why we're taking it that way in so beginning with the end in mind was always driven into us about. Hey you know. What are you trying to accomplish here and I know when I got into corporate arena when things would go to hell in a handbasket in and I would see people scrambling to rework the plan and it drove me crazy that don't work. The plan work the objective rate work. The that's that's begin with the end in mind. I think that was. I just wanted to share that with you. That was probably my biggest takeaway from the seven habits. That has stayed with me for so long that when I see things go as a pilot as a professional aviator were always thinking about. What is what. What's the end in. Mind what's the objective the objectives to get everybody? They're safe and sound and it's so easy to get wrapped up in whatever mini crisis happening. You always gotta go back. What what are we trying to accomplish? Here what are your thoughts on? I said a lot there. But what are your thoughts and what I said. No I think it's a great example of a leadership competency right. We hear a lot about the need for leaders to have big and to be think bold direction and disruptive and I think a lot of times a lot of many of us get I do. I caught in the details caught in the tactics. I get caught into the urgency addiction of the day to day. Right but when you begin with end in mind you are more thoughtful young deliberate. Your your lead this idea. He coined called measure twice. Cut once and to be a little more deliberate in your intent and your communication to paint the vision also for where we're headed. What why are we doing this? What is the why behind the what? I'm a fairly impulsive person. I have a bias to action which has been a good thing for my career. Sometimes sometimes you know I Ready fire aim. You've heard this phrase right. I think Dr Covey the Jim Collins of the author of good to Great Tops. Firing bullets before cannonballs is kind of the same sentence. I think a lot of the same principles apply to us. I think there's also the flip side is. There are some leaders that are so focussed on getting it right in so focused on clarity.

Dr. David Chao talks injuries
"Dr Child always good to have you aboard for the show. Thanks for having me. So when we look at some of the injuries that kind of flakes of the skill position talents We had a big one again in Tampa and it seems to be history repeating itself last week we talked about Mike Evans. His hamstring hamstring the season ending scenario. That played out there. Lo and behold Chris Godwin goes down with what looked like a similar injury last. We saw him carted off in the tunnel in Detroit. Coincidence there is there something going on in Tampa as it pertains to their wideouts in their hamstrings as we get into the tail end of the season they run them ragged and they throw the ball lot. That's probably the only Only Lincoln Yeah and if you really WANNA go conspiracy theory Mike Evans last week. You Scott Miller Another wide receiver earlier in the game in Chris Godwin in early in the season Perriman had a hamstring issue. So if you really trying to go that way but I think it's just coincidence and maybe some of it is They're still slinging the ball around quite a bit Four hundred fifty yards for James Winston This week so so they were running a lot of routes and so forth as we talked about Mike Evans Hamstring with significant and with only three games left. We thought you and I are candidate. I think the same something's GonNa fall for for Chris Godwin here. You know there's only two weeks left there the bucks out of it The hamstring is probably going to be longer than that and he's probably headed into reserve so What does that mean I mean? Had you know from a fantasy site look for paramount. Because Winston's going to have to you. Who else is left? That's a blow. Be still my heart God. What has been the Horse Dr John? That's gotten me in the fantasy. Football finals beat up on her. Dear friend Clay Travis this past past week and in a massive showdown GonNa help that somebody else on my rosters able to step up and fill that void pain savior jokes. Because I know you're gonNA take cheap shots I'm not at all I'm not at all actually gonNA transition to another wide receiver with Adam Phelan. There was talks that he wasn't going to return until he was one hundred percent. Healthy Limited. Snap count this past against the chargers. What do you think that was maybe score or Israel setback therefore Adam feeling well? I think it's a original part of the plan in preparation. Maybe the seven snaps were only because of because of the score but he was never gonNA play fifty Think about it this way first of all if you look Ah. The history of what happened with Phelan was supposed to be a minor hamstring. You played it. Two weeks aggravated missed. Many more weeks. Try to come back to fast in in Practice aggravated again. So they've been burned twice with aggravation. Do you think they were GonNa be burned a third time when next week. They have the Monday night game against against the packers which is for the division and then even the week seventeen game against the division rival bears. This were the LA chargers not that you look past with them. But I don't care who it was only made medical sense to bring him back a little more slowly this type give them a few game raps so that he can and be good to go for the packers. I think you'll see. EEOC normal reps against the packers next week but there was no way he's going to see normal routes this week and so even when Schefter after said he was going to play and be fine. I never thought he would. But you know we all know coachspeak right. It's just another example of coachspeak another guy that's critical to the Vikings offensive successes. Delvin Cook suffered another shoulder. Injury couldn't return against the chargers. Obviously you mentioned the importance of the Monday night. Game against the packers will Delvin Cook play and if so how effective can you be. Well here's a good news. Bad News Bad news is he got hurt again and you didn't finish the game the bad news. It's actually a new injury and that's also the good news it's a new injury if it were the SC join again the right Septa. You'd have to say. Even when he plays against the packers he's one hit one play from being out against. This seems to be something to his left shoulder by video. I can't tell you exactly what it is. There's which sometimes good news because if he dislocated I could tell you. I don't think that's the case. I can't tell you exactly what he has. But it's new to the left shoulder and I think there is okay. Good chance I would expect that he will play and be good to go against the packers And I think that's part of where they said Look L.. Let us live to fight another day Dalvin and rest the rest of the game here in terms of feeling like they have a game in hand out in Los Angeles makes percents with a capable fill in like Mike. Boone had two touchdowns he actually had the second highest sparks score among running backs in two thousand eighteen draft only behind saquon so hard running running in athletic last Vikings Guy One ask you about. That's crucial to the defense's cornerback. Xavier Rhodes went into the chargers game with an ankle. Injury already played through it left left with what appeared to be a calf injury. Does he have a shot to play against Green Bay it's GonNa be hard Calf injuries linger CT Way Hilton. And uh-huh this even though he was GonNa want to at the quarterback position. It's pretty hard to break in driving the ball. If you don't have your staff there then you add the lingering ankle. I mean when you talk about multiple injuries and one of them being calf especially the positioning place as optimistic as I am on Dow Cook able to go. I'm not pessimistic and league's exist your roads being able to go last one. I want to ask you about beforehand it back to todd. The timeline probably doesn't work if it's a high ankle sprain but The seasons on the Line Right Philadelphia Dallas does lane. Johnson have a chance to play this week. I think he does first of all learning clean. Johnson Yasser Heikal Spring He might get some pre-game quote acupuncture to play area. I mean it's it's that big give a game and the other thing is he. You know Yes he's a tackle so he's a little more in space and I can guard. But but certainly it's easier to for a Lineman Wiedeman an offensive lineman to play through high ankle than some other skill position. So I think he's GonNa try everything you can to go. The question is If he can royal factor if you will be I think you're GONNA try all hands on deck type game coming up Sunday for the division and I know a lot of our board listeners Dr Chow who have been writing this Eagles Eagles train with the division future since the beginning of the season. So we'll all sit with wait and wait with bated breath as they go into that one against maybe resurgent cowboys team is short home underdogs but but before we get there. We do have a Monday night. Football game and clearly. The biggest injury around this contest is with. Ty held a lot of optimism through colts camp but you look through some of the lingering signs for T. Y.. Hilton this calf injury. Do you expect him to be able to give it a go tonight. And if if even tries how effective do you believe. He can be out there as a viable deep throat against the Saints Defense. Well you know. There's there's there's two two thoughts here the he will play thought and he won't play thought if you go by what the head coach says and very fulmer to him. Even Situation Frank Reich is if he plays on Monday. We'll be at one hundred percent. I E not playing short of a hundred percent. Well if that is actually true. He's not playing period. There's no way that cafeteria one hundred percent is lingered this long another couple of days. He's been full practice all all week and other days isn't GonNa Change Anything. There's no way he's hundred hundred percent for tonight's game. So we're going to stick to what Frank Reich really sad. Ty He's already told US T Y Hilton's not playing but we all know coachspeak and we all know this is. The colts is kind of last chance. They kind of have to win to stay in it to have any chance to stay in it so That may push what t y Hilton does and you may try. Try and go always interesting to see these guys and who's able to gut it out. As it becomes a war of attrition at this point in the season especially with playoff berths hanging in the balance team saw hang on for dear life in their respective conferences. You can follow Dr David Show on twitter at pro football doc like we say every week the single best source for injury information not only for your sports gambling but for those fantasy football ball championships. That are coming up. He's got a great podcast. Delve sometimes a little bit deeper into a lot of the injury information. Dr Chow. Can't thank you enough for your time. Although I'm going to have to cry before we continue the rest of this podcast with pain now. Knowing Chris Godden won't be available for me to go out there and win a title sort of your that gets into. Thanks as always Dr

Phillies want Manny Machado, Bryce Harper
"To be feeding clear Phillies fans display all they've done. What they've done has been extraordinary despite all they've done. This off season would be considered an utter failure as affiliates. Don't walk away with Manny Machado. I can I can guarantee you for certain the front office is here. That. And I think no matter what it takes whether it's three thirty or three fifty or even north of that. I didn't the Phillies will do whatever is required to get done. Yeah. I said to Scott Miller, my sense was that John Middleton who made the comment about the Phillies, you know, perhaps spending stupid money. He would basically have to grab the steering wheel away from the front office analysts. What do you think? I I agree. I mean, those if they find a way not to to pull in Harper tho those are going to be word that he eats for very long time. I can assure you of that. All right. Let's talk about Manny Machado earlier in the week. I wrote a column in which I suggested that. I mean, I flat out don't think that the timing of the Machado signing is right because I don't think they're pitching develop enough. We we know that they have is tremendous wave of prospects coming you, send me a note after that though that maybe disagree a little bit both to an extent, I agree into an extent. I don't offer you both sides of the aisle. Here's the Padres. Lost ninety six games last season. And now have agreed to three hundred million dollar deal with Machado in that dynamic is practically without precedent. Before yesterday. There had been thirty nine nine figure contracts handed out to free agents in major league history. But only two of them were signed by team that won fewer than seventy games the previous season the oath. Dick's cubs. Went sixty six ninety six signed Alfonso Soriano to one hundred and thirty six million dollar deal. The twenty ten nationals went sixty nine ninety three. They signed Jason worth to a one hundred and twenty six million dollar deal. But the Padres of the top ranked form system, according to baseball America among other outlets, including our own law since two thousand five thirteen of the fourteen teams with that number one distinction made the playoffs BUSTER within two years. And the only exception was the twenty eleven royals and they wound up making it to back to back World Series in two thousand fourteen and twenty fifty. So let me ask you if you were Peter Seidler who is the owner of the Padres. And he's the one who's making like that not a general manager like AJ prowler. Would you have made the same decision that would have made the exact same decision? This is this is a city. In a franchise now that has the opportunity to explode because of the because the chargers have left they play in as we all know the best climate in America. Now have the opportunity to be the biggest show in town. I think Manny Machado though, he isn't Bryce Harper. In terms of celebrity is probably that present a better baseball player. Just in terms of his tools, Dan, Bryce Harper is I will go on record as saying that he will be well worth three hundred million dollars over the next ten years. And I will also point out that the five year player option is not something that shouldn't should should go without being mentioned because as you know, the collective bargaining agreement expires after three years, you never know what the market might look like in five a really shrewd move by Manny Machado when his representation to give them that player option after five
