"In town and we're all rolling with everything going right now, obviously with the NHL NBA seasons in full swing as well as the Patriots who apparently a little bit of life. They're back again. We'll take it back. Yeah. I'll take a take whatever we can. If there's been a couple of bloody, you know, there's been a couple of days already with multiple Boston teams losing in one day. It's nice to have one where they all win. And that's if you had on Sunday, so yeah, we'll take it. Thanks, Connor. And finally, let's talk some baseball bring in Sean mcadam. A last shot in the season is over Red Sox season. Go down in 6 games to the Houston Astros in the ALCS. There's no way to look at the season as anything other than obviously a victory. I know at the time I'm sure people started having fanciful dreams of a World Series trip, you know, especially after two one. But hard to argue this was a real successful campaign for the Red Sox based off of expectations that the question I think going forward as we're already starting to look into the off season into the next season what's sustainable here? What if the Red Sox actually built? They did a great job putting together a team that played hard was competitive was Gritty with some spare parts and some bargain basement picks and things really worked out for them. But going forward, what do you see as sustainable in terms of building a building a program, so to speak that's going to have long-term success? Yeah, well, let's start with the nucleus or the building block there, which is the left side of the infield the Devers and bogarts. They're under control for a while. Bogarts does have the opt out after 2022. But they do have control in theory of those two guys for a while. I would expect that trying to extend Devers will be a priority over the winter. They don't want to have him get close to free agency the way Mookie betts did so close that he can taste it and figures it's better to go out and see what else is out there. I think they have to be aggressive in that regard..

"At the ballpark, both during the season and even extending into the postseason, there is definitely, you know, more, I would say 20 somethings involved. It stands to reason that those people are going to be louder and more energetic than an older crowd or a corporate crowd. So that's contributed to it as well. Yeah, and I'm gonna add a fourth one. I think the current climate in Boston sports has people really starved for a winner in a good story. You've had a couple of years of patriots struggles. The Celtics were an underachieving kind of mopey team last year. So I think being able to embrace a team like the Red Sox who are true underdogs who seem to genuinely like one another who seemed to like playing this game in front of these fans and have really shown it time and again, just with that kind of comeback kids sort of attitude is really refreshing at a time where they're just aren't a lot of great options. I mean, the bruins are obviously I think a team that fits that model as well. But the Red Sox are here on the cusp on the precipice of getting to a World Series and getting to play for a title. I don't think anybody expected that at all. So I think that's a really big one, too. Yeah, no question. You know, this is sort of playing with found money at this point. I think that was somewhat true when they beat the Yankees as long as they got past the potential horror of having their season finished with a one game playoff at home to their arch rivals. Then I think fans began to embrace this team as something of an underdog. And that feels funny to say when you think about the resources, the Red Sox have as an organization. But probably most fans didn't have a great feeling about the chances going into the division series matched against the rays, put the payroll issues aside, the raised dominated them during the season. They finished 8 games in front of them during the regular season in the standings. And yet the Red Sox figured out a way to have a couple of walk off wins at home and sent Tampa Bay home, and now there's this momentum that's gathering. And yeah, I think some of it has to do with the struggles, the Patriots have. There's a bandwagon effect here with, well, maybe this team that we hadn't expected to be in position to do so might be the team closest to winning a championship of the four majors in Boston. And I think people are happy to even if you're on the bandwagon, they're happy to be on it and happy to be at the park so the next three nights. And we are guaranteed three games are gonna be a lot of fun. So again, make sure you follow Sean mcadam and everything that he writes and tweets over at Boston sports journal.

"The code BS J for up to 200% in bonuses on your initial deposit. Thanks, Greg. All right, game three ALCS Red Sox and Astros tonight at Fenway Park actually games three, four, 5, the next three nights, Sean mcadam, of course, will be there for all of them. I actually Sean, I'll be there too, so I'll see you at the ballpark, but we want to preview the game three matchup to start. And really the rest of this series, which really took a turn after those two games in Houston for a couple of reasons. For one Houston's pitching is really a bit of a mess. I didn't go deep with either of their starters. You're dealing with an injury to their game two starter who's still on the roster and a question mark as of now. And obviously without their ace Lance mccullers. So Houston's got and they spent their game for starter in game two. So the Red Sox lineup really well here against Houston. Can they capitalize? Well, there's certainly a good position to do so, John. They're coming home where they have played exceedingly well at Fenway, not just over the course of the season, but in the postseason as well. They're undefeated in their three games at home, having won the wild card. And of course, games three and four in the division series against Tampa Bay, the crowds have been raucous at Fenway, Alex core keeps saying that each game, it seems louder than the previous one. And there really is a energetic atmosphere at Fenway. That should help. But between the lines, the real advantage, excuse me, the Red Sox have at this point is, as you noted, the pitching is much better positioned than the Astros. The Red Sox did not have to use any of their potential games three and four starters that's Eduardo Rodriguez and likely Nick pavetta for game four at all over the weekend. They were available in the bullpen, but weren't needed. So they start on regular rest and are fully replenished from the previous round. And the day off on Sunday allows guys like how and whitlock and others to bounce back and be available to give them multi innings. Out of the bullpen. Meanwhile, as you noted, the Astros rather are have to be questioning whether they have Luis Garcia going forward after he came out in the second inning and J code are easy..

"Code BS J receive up to 200% in bonuses. All right, let's bring in Sean mcadam from the bowels of fentanyl. I wouldn't say the bows you're in a you're in a little you're in a booth here. Overlooking the city. Very nice. So Sean mcadam in there talking to Alex Cora and in person press conference is a departure. And getting ready for a one game playoff a wild card game, Tuesday, at Fenway Park, it's funny Sean for all the drama over the last few times you and I have discussed what's going on with this team. They ended up exactly where we thought they would be, which is hosting a wild card game against the Yankees. Right. Which is something that, while remained a possibility, hardly seemed certain over the last ten days, getting swept by the Yankees losing two out of three to Baltimore. And sweeping Washington, but not without some difficulty. That's a bad team with the buses running in the parking lot. And still the Red Sox struggled. Maybe that's good. You know, maybe going being put through their paces as it were over the final three games and having to play closely contested games, even if the opponent wasn't very good and didn't have a lot of motivation. Maybe that tuned you up some. But yeah, here we are, Red Sox Yankees and should be fun. Yeah, so let's go through some storylines for the game. It is very much a kitchen sink sort of game here where both teams are, you know, we know the drill now. They've done this for a few years. It's a one game playoff. So you're fighting for your life here trying to get into the divisional series. So you're going to see, especially with the Red Sox and they're situation here, they're both pens all over the place, so you're going to see starters coming out of the pen. You could see people coming in in the third and fourth inning of a starter doesn't have it. Complicating matters for the Red Sox even further is they can't even run their a offensive lineup out there because you don't well, you don't know exactly what's going on with JD Martinez, who rolled his ankle in his questionable for tomorrow. Personally, Sean, I think pinch hitting is the most we'll see out of JD if that, I can't see them playing. So how do you think they're going to play it tomorrow just from a lineup perspective before we get into all of the other machinations and everything else that might go on just to try to get the W at all costs? Yeah, one thing to remember, John is that they do not have the services of Jose Iglesias who has been such a glue guy for them over the month of September. He was added to the organization after September 1st. And as such, he's not eligible for the postseason. So that takes a fairly significant player out of their reach, he had played good defense at second, even though he'd only played one game there in his career. He was able to transfer those defensive skills to the other side of the bag and the infield. And he hit from the number 9 spot, gave them some tough at bats. Looks like it'll be Christian Arroyo taking his spot at second base. A lot of lineup questions are going to revolve around JD Martinez as you hinted at..

"All right, let's switch gears talk some baseball. We have Sean mcadam of the Boston sports journal alongside and Sean. Here we are. 9 games left, Red Sox kicking off a pivotal, three game series against the Yankees. They're in the driver's seat right now. Two games up on the AL wild card. Really, anything short of a sweep here and there and really good position because they're closing their schedule with three games against the Orioles three games against the nationals which are two of the worst teams in baseball. So I guess don't get swept would be really good here. But win one pretty good shape win two games and they're really, really, I wouldn't say cruising, but in really solid shape here to get to get that top AL wildcard spot. Yeah, I think you're right, John. If they get two out of the three, they can go three and three in those 6 games against the Orioles and nationals and that shouldn't be too much of a hill to climb there. You're playing as you noted two of the worst teams in the game. The Orioles are on a pace to lose about a 110 games, the nationals aren't quite so bad when you look at it from the entire season. But look at their records since the trading deadline when they moved about half their major league roster and they're a far worse team since then. So it's a pretty big cushion for the final week and really the Red Sox as you said, have to avoid being swept if they win two of three. I think the wild card race is effectively clenched..

"I have some other people I want to talk to so that's why I continue being somewhat of an alias naysayer on whether we're going to have Alex Cora to with the Red Sox. Yeah, and I think I would agree Sean it but I think if bloom had a here's my guy clear-cut front-runner favorite that he really really wanted and let's say it was the Tampa bench coach and he was able to arrest him free from Raise then you can then I could see it. Not that not not that I disagree with the notion that he doesn't want a fresh start. But if it's not a slam-dunk gotta have this guy cuz he's my guy guy off the pressure from both ownership and players could be enough for it seems that core. It could be the guy who slides in I know Vasquez recently was what what we don't know is does hien Bloomberg have that guy in my maybe it is Louise orietta. Yeah, because he has interviewed him twice now for the same opening that would seem to signal that he really likes him. Even if last January home kind of a dry run. Well, it's too close to Spring training to bring somebody new in from outside the organization, but let me just get a measure of this guy might be heard off and now that he's got a second chance to fill this position and he doesn't have the crunch of spring training being two weeks away. Maybe orietta is the guy that he's like all along. I'm not saying That's the case but possibly Advocate and saying maybe one of these handful of guys has come in and blown highbloom away and he has a favorite that he's near ready to recommend. We don't know where the process stands. Okay. So as you said things will they'll be a lot more clarity in the next week to ten days for sure on the Alex Cora situation. So we should we should have a better idea then want to move on to free agency here. I want to tell everybody at home again about our another sponsor of our exclusive wagering.

"Would you would you agree? I mean when he was appointed, they did not. He was actually finishing out the coaching contract that he signed a three years ago when he was hired as the bench coach for Al Score and winning appointed him I on an interim basis, and then later in April you know the official manager for twenty twenty they did nothing to address kind of the lame duck status of his contractual situation. It was just well will give you a boost in pay over what you were going to be paid as the presumptive bench coach had quarter returned, but we're not giving you any security beyond. The end of September that should have been the first clue that perhaps this was a short term arrangement. He was familiar with the roster and let's let let's see what he does over the next few months and make a decision going forward and as I said, the the record in the last place finish kind of dooms any chances of him being extended past the Sunday.

Or just a very strong possibility if he does come back first off Handicap this and second if he does come back. Are you looking at full acceptance here is there any resentment will there be backlash or does he does it feel like he largely escaped you know the kind of the wrath of of Major League baseball and the public for his role in the cheating scandal with the acid feels like he's GonNa come out of this. Fairly clean. Well, he has been suspended for a full seizure and he was essentially fired although the Red Sox will remind you that the key phrases. Really agreed to Parkway's Yup up. Nonetheless, his punishment is every bit as severe as A. J. Hinch who was the manager and presumably the guy in charge in Houston. So as the top Lieutenant Chorus suffered the same penalty that the guy who was running the show. So sure I think he got off lightly he lost a year of salary. He lost he was exiled from the game for all the twenty twenty and his reputation is at least somewhat tarnished by association with that season does he come back I? Think it's on the table. I think the players would absolutely welcome outscore back with open arms. I don't say that in that they have rejected Ron Reynecke or never paid attention or listen to him. But core obviously had a bond with most of the players on that roster and they would welcome him back for twenty twenty one going forward. I think also opera management and ownership having strong affection for Alex Cora I think they were sort of guilted into making. The decision they did back in January to let him go I. think that there was probably some pressure from Major League baseball to do so they did so reluctantly but knowing they had to do it. That's at I think they would welcome him back with open arms at the x factor. Here is hind bloom. He's the guy who is the chief baseball officer was hired by the owner several months before core laugh to run it his way. Yeah. So you know while the owners are saying in West Spring you know we'd be okay with are coming back in the players shore with like it it was probably would probably play well with the fan base ultimately bloom has to decide is this guy it's gotta be his idea I who am I? Okay. Off on his return, my sense is that would have no great objection to Cora. How could you? This is a guy in two years certainly in his first year who directed attained Eight wins and a dominant World Series Championship is credentials are in water. It's a matter of does this. Does does Blue Mont Corner, be his guy for the next five six seasons or is there someone out there that he would prefer right mold as his manager and and perhaps have a little bit more sway with while core can come in with his own credentials and certainly has to acquiesce to bloom on personnel decisions but would there be any clash there I I don't think it would be great. I'm not willing to say it's a slam dunk that outscore comes back but it certainly on the table and. And when I was talking about reputation, I'm more meaning cora got hit hard but I feel like the perception around his involvement changed somewhere in the early days it was perceived as ringleader, and then he brought the whole operation to Boston and when the Red Sox for cleared and more stuff came out about how deep this ran in the Houston organization I feel like Cora the initial reaction was he's got to go I feel like that's subsided. So I I do agree that bringing him back is is something that most people fans organizationally the players would would probably be on board with where you know that that's. Something that people can live with now where the initial days initial stages of it didn't look like that would be the case right and if the if the main staining encores reputation is what he did in. Houston elsewhere or years ago. That's their problem who cares he was largely absolve here So that's an easy hurdle to overcome. The thing is interesting too. It's not by any means comparable, but certainly, you had in the first years of Ben. In the managerial situation. You had owner ownership intervention with Bobby Valentine. Couldn't network that well. There's Personally, Sean we were together at NBC sports positive the time that's as much fun as I've had covering the Red Sox WanNa circus that was, but you can't possibly have anything go worse than that. So I mean while no one's GonNa Compare Corre to Bobby Valentine somewhere in the back of ownership's mind the half to be thinking like I really can't force my guy here. Can I yeah I think that Ultimately they they make their thoughts known to hind blown. But if they're doing this the right way the rest of that presentation ends with however, we hired you to run baseball operations you know our feelings, but ultimately, this is your choice that's the way to handle it up. Okay. Well, Sean mcadam thank you very much. This has been the red SOx beat podcast on the Seattle NS media. Network. Sean. Thanks again. That's.

"All. Possible we've talked about that before and training camp especially when Harris was doing a really nice job. Was your he was your he was your top camp player. One of them Harris Yeah Oh. No question. He was. He was outstanding and I can't wait to see on an NFL field because I think he does have that kind of playmaking ability and he's he's also dynamic in the passing game which Sony is not I think. I have a hard time seeing that I think I think we need to get closer to the trade deadline to see what happens but I mean initially, it's going to be Harris and Michelle are going to split the first two downs Jj. Taylor is going to go back to practice squad right? He's GonNa get released to he might get claimed I don't know, and then you know it's it birkhead sort of he sees more of a cutback in what he's doing occasional some some carries in in the regular offense it mostly it's going to be to spell James White a little bit as the third down back but I think Taylor's the odd man out and then they sort of gauge how? Things are going but yeah, I I don't rule that out. Right? It's the fact that he's so one dimensional that makes it difficult again, with rex, you have the threat of both running and catching versatility seems to play there. So Harris takes over that early down roll. It seems like Michelle's odd man out here. So we'll see what happens Sunday, and then we'll see if Harris is ready to come what happens to Sunday after that but one way or the other they've got to get something going on the ground and this team is in desperate need of some sort of playmaker. Again I know you've said Harris could be that guy so we'll see what happens there. Greg thanks a lot. Okay. Thanks. Okay switching gears to baseball. We are in the final stretch. Sean mcadam is here with us in the socks are done this weekend. That's it. It was over before. But I mean really season fairly on remarkable. Still a lot of positive things especially down the stretch and especially with the pitching rotation with Sean You wrote for Boston Sports Journal. The there's some positive signs here both looking ahead to twenty twenty one which will be upon us very quickly both with the return of Chris. Sale Rodriguez presumably to full health not. But you think there's there's more in the pipeline maybe we thought when the season began. Yeah. Certainly the last couple of weeks John have highlighted the emergence of tanner how who has been if not a revelation than certainly someone who has exceeded expectations for him. This is someone that. Has Been A number one draft pick. But there were some questions about his readiness to get my of major league hitters out and through two outings and I stress that you can't. overstate. What that means in the long run it's a pretty small statistical sample but still Has Been Very effective with eleven innings and no earned runs allowed through his first to get one more outing in Atlanta. This weekend for his final start of the year combination of how and what we saw from nick a better. The other night he was the centerpiece of the trade that made with the phillies that tried to remake him. At Target change up this pitch mix cleanup is delivery a little bit and he was very effective the other night..

"Remember mentioned Boston Sports Journal moving onto the Red Sox. There's not a ton get excited about on the field, of course, but off the field still trying to figure out what this team is going to look like and what it's going to be in the future. Now, the future of JD Martinez is in question. He can opt out next year if he chooses to he didn't do it last year when he had that option. He's due to make a little bit under twenty million dollars is not performing that well and the free-agent Landscapes going to be a mess because of the economics baseball with the Cova jut down J D Martinez spoke to me on Thursday and he did not sound like a guy who was too interested in testing those Waters. I honestly feel I would not want to be a free agent. You know like during this time for that reason. You just don't know you really there's there's no everything's up in the air. We're going to welcome and Sean McAdam to talk about Choice comments. I mean, he basically said, it's Shaun he's not going to exercise his opt out which means he's coming back to the Red Sox for Just Around twenty million for next year and I'm guessing it's the Red Sox had it there where they'd love to find a way not have that be the case. Yeah, I mean Martinez other than this season has been a very productive hitter certainly in his first two years that's not been the case this year to hear him. Tell it a lot of that is not having access to in-game video, which is a big part of his preparation and game is very analytical about panics of the swings likes to make adjustments and because of the pandemic doesn't have that availability and access this year, but he is getting older. He's thirty-two now, and yep. Did say that given the uncertainty surrounding the game and the economic landscape that is certainly going to change. You know, I wouldn't want to be a free agent this year. Then someone said, well, you have the opportunity to be a free agent or we to read anything into that any kind of backpedaled because players don't like to say or reveal their plans or take away any leverage that they might have but if he can opt out last year then it's hard to think that with the losses throughout the industry and teams cutting payroll that he thinks he's going to have a better mark this year than he did last year. Right? And obviously the economic landscape is going to be going to be abysmal next year. So nobody nobody wants to enter it but the question now is with that 20 million dollar price tag. Sean is not tradable, especially considering as you said, you know, certainly he'd be a 20 million even in a depressed landscape would still be somewhat of a bargain for the production you were getting prior to this year. But if this Thursday The type of year he's going to have who would pay that for this? Well one benefit John for the Red Sox is the likelihood that the national league is going to adapt the d h a m permanent basis they did. So this year again because of the pandemic they didn't want to have pictures running the bases with a shorter spring training and more injuries. We've already seen a ton of pitching injuries without them hitting but the the trend in game is certainly toward having a universal DH that's good for the Red Sox because it potentially doubles the amount of money suitors who would be interested in Martinez a national league team would not want to sign him and have him play The Outfield regularly he is well below average defensively..

"And that's how I learned about and I'll wrap it up with this. You know. In 1975 he went up against cops by putting out his own set of majorly card 600 cards. Well, the SSP see said, and he was sued by tops, and I remember going to the trial in Brooklyn and they settled You know, tops didn't win the lawsuit they settled. But the settlement basically ended up being the demise of Mike and the idea of current player cards because he had to include them in another. Medium like enough you could put him in a magazine. But how many cards can you put in the magazine? You're paying all that expense of of putting the cards? You know, you got to pay for the magazine. That's how baseball quarterly started. And that's how I got my got My start Well, and tops originally started with Kathy, because chewing gun thing they thought was patented to the other company in the taffy actually melted caramel dip. It didn't really work out very well. But yeah, it melted in the warehouse and people would buy them and cards would be all stuck together. And you know, pink stuff all over the face, so Was very much a debacle. Another story that you have in there which I thought was great is what happened. The Red Sox? Yeah, and, you know, basically, you know, you look at the Red Sox and the four championships since the 2000 oughts And you think? Wow, you know, Boston Great championships, but they've gone from winning championships. Toe last place, toe winning champion. You know, they've been very inconsistent. And what they're trying to do. Now, Will you tell the story about how they fired? A guy thought the Met should've hired and hi M bloom as a guy that is going to pretty much rebuild the organization from the bottom up. Well, you know, they're the 2018 world champions and within a year or whatever that less than a year You know their president of baseball operations leaves the organ is fired. Broschi, Dave Dombrowski, You trade your best player and a great pitcher and David Price. And you lose your manager. I mean, no one could have ever predicted that. That is not something that anyone could have ever predicted. So the, uh, the title of the story and Sean McAdam Great Boston writer did a great job very fair is basically what happened to the Red Sox. And where do they go from here? And he kind of outlines, you know, Hime blooms game plan. Of and I don't think the Red Sox are going to be terrible by any stretch of the imagination. I don't think they're going to hit rock bottom like they did a couple years ago where they went from first. I think there'll be a 500 or so team. I think there's still a lot of towns on that team. But, you know, begging, I guess into the 2020 season. Um, this is something that we can sit here for a week. And you could have the best baseball experts on meant more many more Children than my knowledge of the current game, and it's going to be utterly unpredictable. Utterly unpredictable and we could talk about why that is, but, um No one's going. No one knows what's coming starting Thursday. Yeah, no question. We'll go to the Red Sox issue. I mean, when you trade Mookie Betts. If you're a Yankee fan, imagine the Yankees in the final year of Aaron judges before he becomes a free agent. The Yankees getting rid of Aaron Judge for prospects or let's say Pete Alonso with the Mets. You know his contract is coming up. You trade him for prospects. I mean, that is the impact and maybe even more so. That the Boston Red Sox fans had to feel when Mookie Betts was was traded. Oh, absolutely, and more so than Alonso are Aaron judge, although they are the faces of their franchises. Because this guy is a bona fide M v p. I mean, I had a discussion at my my cigar club. Doc James in trouble. New YORK just this weekend about Will the Yankees sign Aaron? Judge long term and everybody's opinion was basically that well, we're just gonna have to wait and see because we need to see that he can play full seasons. Meet Alonzo. I think obviously, that's that's a conversation for another day, because we only have you know the snapshot of the of the unbelievable first season, but you know what we're going to learn about the Red Sox. They obviously got some some payroll relief. They still have talent, although it's aging, But you know, you look at the left side and we wrote a sidebar on this part of it. You look at the left side of their infield with Devers and Bogart. That's as good as anybody. So they've got building blocks in place. Uh, so it's going to be interesting, but I think that This is 60 game. You know if I had told you Back in March or whatever that on July 23rd. Baltimore Orioles would be tied for first place with the New York Yankees. You know, no one would believe that or the Pittsburgh Pirates or whatever. Everybody starts out fresh on July 23rd and it's a 60 games sprint. And how do you think we're talking to Rick Surround editor of Baseball Digest. How do you think baseball general managers respond to the snows of you know, Trading deadline is the end of August now? Yes. So if your team is basically out of it, you know your 10 and 30. At that point, we have no chance. T go anywhere. The just pack it And did you just say Well, look, you know, with a risk involved, even if the risk goes down a little bit that players a guys go home. You know, let's let's let the minor leaguers play. Let's just play out the season or let's say you're a team that didn't expect a lot of seeing somebody like the Detroit Tigers and and you were actually in striking distance of making the playoffs. Do you trade a bunch of prospects for an aging veteran? Maybe with an expiring contract, But a guy you think could put you over the top and maybe Snake end of the play offs. And if you get lucky, won a championship. Well, I can assure you, Richard, that we could name a bunch of teams right here, and it's pretty. I know that. Three of them are the Pirates, the Orioles and the Tigers, and there are others, right? They're not making those moves. Because it would be so contrary to their plan, Okay, But there is a group of teams. Maybe the Red Sox. We could go through each division. A team that you know is not Really in a long term building plan that, Yeah, they're going to add those players, so I'm not really that concerned about and I've heard it a lot. About what if the team starts off? Well, you know if you get to August 15th and you're you know you're nine and 20 for whatever it is, you know, on August 28th. Well, that's the same as it's August 28th. And you're, you know, 24 or 46 or or whatever the number of my baby Yeah, I think that's gonna play out. But But you mentioned the general managers and here's the point I want to make about this season that I think fan should watch, Okay. It really does come down to the general managers and the managers because I am very comfortable and confident that when the light goes on on Thursday For four teams and then for everybody the next day, right? They're going to be teams that are ready to go because they have made the most of this summer camp. They were organized. They got their players ready. And then there's going to be another group. Great that did nothing. That if they look back on the summer camp, they did not get their players as prepared to play as they could have. Because when you look at this, think about it in a normal year, Richard, You hear managers of Aaron Boone. Whoever it might be right? Well, I'd like to get him 50th. Whatever the number is, you know he's going to need to get 50 at that training is going. Nobody's going to get that. Nobody's going to get that you're going tohave pitchers started major league season without ever having face on opposing batter. From a performing opponent from another team from another team, You know, three exhibition games..

If? One person dies because baseball started up too early. That's really tough thing to explain. Yeah, no question. I mean as as much as baseball has served as a bomb and a you know. A distraction for us in our most challenging times in history whether it be World War Two or the Korean War or nine eleven. Whatever has come out sports and baseball more than the others and I guess we could do a whole separate show on why that's the case, but. It has always served to fill that void, and we would welcome it, but I think you make an excellent point, Josh that back in September of two thousand and one. It seemed like we were all united against an enemy that we at least knew something about we could take precautions against it, and there seemed to almost be strengthened numbers.

"Journal is going to join us in just a little bit. We're going to talk our way through the very latest around baseball. A little bit about the. Red Sox obviously best we can. Certainly talk about. If there's going to be baseball if there's the possibility of the red sox now being in this weird division with a bunch of great teams, if that happens, that could certainly put a little dark spot on the outside chances that they were in the beginning to make a playoff run in twenty twenty, but isn't going to be a twenty twenty We're GONNA. Get to that. That's going to be pretty much most of our conversation here today I, sure hope there's a two thousand twenty baseball season. I know you guys do, too because they for no other reason, the scarier and more uncertain things seem in our day to day. Lives think the more important it gets to have an anchor, and for so many people. Baseball is at anchor in their day to day lives sports and music are really the to Universals, and there are people out there. That aren't necessarily sports, fans or wondering. What's the big deal that there's no baseball? Baseball for a while and I always say imagine in an entire month, maybe several more with a moratorium on music. If you're stressed, you can't listen to your favorite song. There's nothing on in the background. Is he working your kitchen that concert? You were really looking forward to for months will now never happen and that's kind of how lonely it's been for baseball fans, and that's why it's so important to get back to them just as soon as it's safe, and that is the key word to me. I hope it is two guys to safe. Can the game be played without fans as question. We're hearing a lot right now, and it may have to be for a while to keep everyone safe. Lots of spring training. Games are played in front of very few fans, and there are be games on backfield's where there are no fans, so this is not unprecedented in any way. And in a strange way I keep thinking. Maybe baseball can model for every sport and every social event in the country. How to execute this slow roll back to normal. Keep it safe. Make some adjustments for now as need be. Keep looking forward to when things get back to how we've. Known them is the Arizona plan real or the Arizona Florida plan, real I get that one a lot too and I would say yes, and no, because until testing is scaled and accessible to everyone say very bad look to test only ballplayers in a bubble I think everyone agrees going forward. Even talking about all this, assuming the testing across the nation will be a reality before too long. I mean I don't mean to turn this into politics, but I I can't believe that's not the number one thing that's. been tried over the last several weeks..

"If you haven't yet voted for Monday MVP, that's the NFL version Monday MVP will unveil some. Sometime in the next couple of hours, but the poll is still live on either Twitter or on Facebook. I wanna take some calls. Let's talk about college football. Whether it's Clemson at its dominance of Alabama where there is an uncharacteristic performance by the tide and Nick Sabin really pointed to their inefficiency on third down. They were terrible on third down. As a matter of fact, not only do they allow Clemson to perform extremely well on third down. So the Tigers converted ten of fifteen but for the tide Vail really struggled when it came to I down, and they were continuing to go for it on fourth down because they're kicker is missed nine times this year and at yeah. So Joseph boulevard, he was not on Nick Sabin hitlist. Well, hitlist makes it sound like he was looking for a gun for hire. But you know, what? I mean, he was he was he was in the doghouse. There we go. There's a different. And so they kept going forward on fourth down. I think later in the game they need to be aggressive. But the play calling itself was not real creative. And Clemson was prepared. And so give the defensive coordinator and the special teams coordinators credit because they were prepared for whatever Alabama with throw at them. And I think ready for what they were going to see downfield with to go below he took full responsibility. And I like this this young man his character his leadership. He obviously has a bright future in football as long as he stays healthy. And as much as I think you can credit the Clemson defense for throwing different looks at him on that original interception. You're really smart play by AJ, Terrell. He was pretending to be in a zone, and then moved around and to actually jump the route and moved in front of. His Mark to grab the interception. So I feel like Clemson did a really good job in terms of trying to mix it up for two. But he didn't see it that way. I don't think there was anything that they were doing this stuff. This those totally Abed bad decisions poor decision on my part. I just think we came out. And we were killing ourselves we shot herself in the foot by me so interception for such down. And then, you know, not finishing drives. The what we wanted to. They definitely did not they didn't perform well in the red zone. There was a goal line stand early. They had to settle for field goal and a couple of cases. And I think to the fake field goal. And I go back to that sequence early in the second half where they go for the fake. It's so completely read by Clemson and stopped. And then right after that there's a seventy four yard touchdown pass to Justin Ross when the defensive back, it's her and falls down. And that to me was essentially the the nail in the coffin I feel like my analogy so morbid tonight, but you understand what I'm talking about. I felt like that was a hole out of which Alabama could not climb. But to see them get shut out in the second half. You just don't often see a tied team. Nick Sabin coach team play that poorly with that many mistakes. But you know, what they're still human beings and happens to everyone at some point. And I appreciate that coach Sabin as hard as he is on himself and on his team as high as his expectations. Are he said afterwards? This game doesn't define who we are as a program. You know, this one game it's gonna motivate us. It's going to serve as this. This catalyst. To move us forward into next season. But it's not going to define us. This is not the end of our story. It's after hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS sports radio. Eight five five two one two four seven. That's our toll free line here at CBS sports radio. Jeff is listening in Birmingham. Welcome to after hours. Hello, amy. Hello. I just I just spoke up having missed the game last night. Instead, I watched the series of the big bang theory were Sheldon Mary's you, thanks sake. It's so heartbreaking to see such a successful long running series. Come such a sudden and sort of cheer myself up. I watched the famous Sonny and Cher music video on the beat goes on and fell asleep. After making a mistake reading par Nagas August, they're less chilling tale called Easter from afar, where a terrifying creature leaves its victims nothing, but lifeless husks hollow shells, what was once vibrant life. So I missed the gangs me saving win get another championship. The altered Alabama Clemson tied. Amy. Amy. Amy. Well, that was fun. I really appreciate dot com. Eight five five two one two four two two seven. Let's talk to Brown. Who's in Boston? Welcome to after hours hall eel. I'm good. Thank you. Good. Thank you love. The like ten degrees in. Rhode Island border, but I'll get to my point. Having listened to the game at on the radio after the interception for picks out the Alabama got behind at one point. Sean mcadam that Alabama has one hundred eighty two lucky compared to cleanses twenty-five Lucca gods. One other Clemson had the ball. They made a long pass. And it was down the field the twenty guideline totally Nick Sabin was out hold. I think on the field goal. Even the commentators said that Clemson was lined up. Expecting field goal, and that applies that Al didn't call a time out. I had a question feel. When they came back from halftime interview for both sides of the ball and the person that interviewed Mr. Sabin said to him, and you said, well, we're gonna have to do this to get back in the game. And in a statement that kind of scratching my head the statement love. While they're doing some things to us that we didn't prepare law because they were using plays from other to the other two had used against us with. I that probably. The place had what against them, and he was like incredulous if that's the would like how can you someone else's plays against what is it that the name of the game, you finding a weakness on what what against them? And that was one statement I made and then they went back to the point of the second half and lily, I think they will coach the quarterback on Clemson has a very blatant Utah. And I'll hang up, and I'll listen you'll response and you have a great skill and. All right. Thanks brown. I appreciate that. Good to hear from you in Boston. So Brown's referring to the quick back and forth that Maria Taylor had with Nick Sabin as they actually actually as they were coming off the field to go into the halftime locker room. And I know what he's talking about the radio broadcast because I was listening to ESPN radio at halftime, and my friend Mark cast is Cher was anchoring, the the halftime coverage as well as the pre and post, but I wanted to hear him, and they actually replayed the interviews that Maria Taylor did with Nick Sabin, and that Tom Rinaldi did with Davos twenty going into the halftime locker rooms, and what Nick Sabin said, I'm not sure it came out the right way. It also caught my attention. He did mention that there were some things that Clemson use it. They had seen earlier in the year, and they need to get prepared for those. I don't think he meant they were unprepared because that's not a hallmark of a Nick Sabin Nick Sabin coached team. He is all about. The preparation, but I think they didn't respond to those things. Well, so I felt like what he was saying to Maria was we've seen these things before this is nothing new. This is not something that we shouldn't be. We shouldn't be equipped to handle we shouldn't know how to respond to but we weren't prepared. Meaning the team wasn't ready to go. And so we gotta get into our halftime locker room of we've got to figure these things out again. So I think what he was saying was our team seen this before. And we need to go in there and tell the kids, hey, this is not anything new. They're not throwing anything at you that you shouldn't be ready to handle. That was how I interpreted it again, one of the hallmarks of Nick Saban and his coaching staff is are Uber prepared to the point where it's it's almost like a business like a job, it's very professional atmosphere. I have Alabama players former Alabama players that are now in the NFL. Tell me that the way Nick Sabin runs. His program is the ultimate preparation for moving to the next level because you already know. How to handle your business? You already know how to prepare. You already recognize what it means to be a professional locker room because that's how Nick Sabin runs his locker runs this program. So I think he was being maybe a little bit tongue in cheek when he said they weren't prepared for it. They should have been because they'd seen those things before Brown. Thanks so much for your phone. Call eight five five two one two four two two seven that's eight five five two one two four two two seven. If you have any reaction to what we heard pre-game from Mark keenum who is the chair of the playoff board of managers. His statement indicating there's no way they're going to expand the college football playoff. But based on what we've seen in the national semifinals that were both blowouts and then this game albeit between the top two teams in the country in one and two Alabama. And Clemson how do you feel about expansion or lack thereof because I hear the arguments for both sides. So that's something else. You can hear or I'd like to hear from you. But something that you can hear on the show. They're not. Expanding close that door period end of sentence. They are not expanding no matter how much people talk about it.

So Joseph boulevard, he was not on Nick Sabin hitlist. Well, hitlist makes it sound like he was looking for a gun for hire. But you know, what? I mean, he was he was he was in the doghouse. There we go. There's a different now. And so they kept going for it on fourth down. I think later in the game they need to be aggressive. But the play calling itself was not real creative. And Clemson was prepared. And so give the defensive coordinator and the special teams coordinators credit because they were prepared for whatever Alabama throw at them. And I think ready for what they were going to see downfield with to go below he took full responsibility. And I like this this young man his character his leadership. He obviously has a bright future in football as long as he stays healthy. And as much as I think you can credit the Clemson defense for throwing different looks at him. On that original interception. You're really smart play by AJ, Terrell. He was pretending to be in zone, and then moved around and actually jump the route and moved in front of his Mark to grab the interception. So I feel like Clemson did a really good job in terms of trying to mix it up for two. But he didn't see it that way. I don't think it was anything that they were doing this. That was totally the bed bed decision as poor decision on my part. I just think we came out. And you know, we were killing ourselves when we charter cells in foot- by me so interception for such down. And then finishing drives though what we wanted to. They definitely did not they they didn't perform well in the red zone. There was a goal line stand early. They had to settle for field goal and a couple of cases. And I think to the fake field goal. And I go back to that sequence early in the second half where they go for the fake. It's so completely read by Clemson and stopped. And then right after that there's a seventy four yard touchdown pass to Justin Ross when the defensive back, it's her and falls down. And that to me was essentially the the nail in the coffin. I feel like my analogy so morbid tonight, but you. Understand what I'm talking about. I felt like that was a hole out of which Alabama could not climb. But to see them get shut out in the second half. You just don't often see a tied team Nick Sabin coached team play that poorly with that many mistakes. But you know, what they're still human beings. And it happens to everyone at some point. And I appreciate that code Sabin as hard as he is on himself and on his team as high as his expectations. Are he said afterwards? This game doesn't define who we are as a program. You know, this one game it's gonna motivate us. It's going to serve as this. This catalyst. To move us forward into next season. But it's not going to define us. This is not the end of our story. It's after hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS sports radio. Eight five five two one two four two two seven. That's our toll free line here at CBS sports radio. Jeff is listening in Birmingham. Welcome to after hours. Hello, amy. Hello. I just I just spoke up haven't missed the game last night. Instead, I watched the series finale of is the big bang theory. Sheldon Mary's your namesake, it's so heartbreaking to see such a successful long running series. Come such a sudden and sort of cheer myself up. I watched famous cheer music video on the beat goes on and fell asleep. After making the mistake reading par novelist. August they're less chilling tale called speedster from afar where terrifying creature leaves its victims nothing, but lifeless husks hollow shell what was once Breitbart lives? So I missed the gangs. Tell me to win another championship for the vaulted, Alabama Clemson tied. Amy, amy. Amy. Well, that was fun. I really appreciate that conversation. Eight five five two one two four two two seven. Let's talk to Brown. Who's in Boston? Welcome to after hours. I'm good. Thank you. Like ten degrees. Rhode Island bought up, but I'll get to my point. Listen to the game at. Lucked out. Up to the interception for picks out the Alabama got behind at one point. Sean mcadam that Alabama has to compared to plunges twenty-five Lucca gods community. Community. A Clemson add the ball. They made a long pass down the field. Literally online, be totally. Nick Sabin was out. I think on the field goal. Even the commentators said that Clemson was lined up any. That they were expecting out field goal. Applies that Al didn't call a time out. But I got a collection. When they came back from halftime interview for both sides of the ball. And the the person that interview Mr. Sabin. Said well, we're gonna do this to get back into the game. In a statement. Scratching my head. This statement love. While they're doing some things to us that we didn't care law because. Using clues from other. The other. Against us. I think that probably the place had what against them, and he was like incredulous if that's the word like why how can they use someone else's plays against? Isn't that the name of the finding? On what worked against them? That was one statement. And then they went back to plenty of the second half. And really, I think they ll coach the quarterback on Clendenin has a very blatant Yuka. Locking up and I'll listen response glade scowl and you're doing you're doing all right. Thanks brown. I appreciate that. Good to hear from you in Boston. So Brown's referring to the quick back and forth that Maria Taylor had with Nick Sabin as they actually actually as they were coming off the field to go into the halftime locker room. And I know what he's talking about the radio broadcasts because I was listening to radio at halftime, and my friend Mark has to share was anchoring, the halftime coverage as was the pre and post, but I wanted to hear him, and they actually replayed the interviews that Maria Taylor did with Nick Sabin, and that Tom Rinaldi did with Davos twenty going into the halftime locker rooms, and what Nick Sabin said, I'm not sure it came out the right way. Also caught my attention. He did mention that there were some things that Clemson use it. They had seen earlier in the year, and they need to get prepared for those. I don't think he meant they were unprepared because that's not. A hallmark of a Nick Sabin Nick Sabin coach team. He is all about the preparation, but I think they didn't respond to those things. Well, so I felt like what he was saying to Maria was we'd see me things before this is nothing new. This is not something that we shouldn't be. We shouldn't be equipped to handle we shouldn't know how to respond to but we weren't prepared. Meaning the team wasn't ready to go. And so we've got to get into our halftime locker room of we've got to figure these things out again. So I think what he was saying was our team seen this before. And we need to go in there and tell the kids, hey, this is not anything new. They're not throwing anything at you that you shouldn't be ready to handle. That was how I interpreted it again, one of the hallmarks of Nick Sabin is coaching staff is that they are Uber prepared to the point where it's it's almost like a business like a job, it's very professional atmosphere. I have Alabama players former Alabama players that are now in the NFL. Tell me the way Nick Sabin runs. His program is the ultimate preparation for moving to the next level. Because you already know how to handle your business, you already know how to prepare. You already recognize what it needs to be a professional locker room because that's how Nick Sabin runs his locker Miranda's program. So I think he was being maybe a little bit tongue in cheek when he said they weren't prepared for it. They should have been because they had seen those things before Brown. Thanks so much for your phone. Call eight five five two one two four two two seven that's eight five five two one two four two two seven. If you have any reaction to what we heard pre-game from Mark keenum who is the chair of the playoff board of managers. His statement indicating there's no way they're going to expand the college football playoff. But based on what we've seen in the national semifinals that were both blow out and then this game albeit between the top two teams in the country in one and two Alabama. And Clemson how do you feel about expansion or lack thereof 'cause I hear the arguments for both sides. So that's something else. You could hear. I'd like to hear from you. But something that you can hear on the show this. They're not expanding close that door period end of sentence. They are not expanding. No matter how much people talk about it.
