T-Mobile CEO boasts he's got more 5G capacity than rivals Verizon and AT&T

"Today we bring you part two of a three part interview with T. Mobile CEO Mike Seaver for we talk about its progress with five G.. which bit let's talk about five G. topic that's near, and dear to my heart. I WanNa get a sense. Of what the status is of your five year, roll out so far well, we're way of schedule. And and that's impart thanks to your good government, who accidentally gave us an extra year plan this merger? gave us a little extra time, and we've taken advantage of it and come out of the gates. Really running right now we have mid band, five G., using two and a half gigahertz spectrum, running in five of the largest cities in the country. NEW YORK LA CHICAGO HOUSTON. Philadelphia I mean that's that's fantastic. In just one hundred days were up and running, and the speed were seeing average speeds. When you've got both low and mid band in place of north of three hundred megabits per second ten times faster than four G. L. T. already in the first moments of this five G. Revolution that we're building so now now get this open signal just came out with a report and said that t mobile customers who have five g equipment are getting five G. now twenty three percent of the time. And the percent of time they're getting five G. on horizon. Zero point four percent of the time. And it just shows the difference in our strategies. Verizon's been out breathlessly talking about five G. for over two years while today as we sit here zero four point, four percent of their customers are attaching to it. Whereas it's twenty three percent best in the world as far as we know, at T. mobile more than twice the level of at and T. who a year later is pursuing. What was the standalone t mobile plan essentially at and T. has now doing what standalone t mobile was doing last year, which is rolling out low band and just there a year behind?

T-Mobile CEO on fighting the scourge of robocalls

"Mobile's event was all about fighting scan and robocalls. We've got CEO Mike Seaver to talk about it. Rod Chang, and this is your daily charge. Carrier, events are generally when you attack. The big annoyances are wireless service. So what are you addressing with today's news? We call them pain points and we've done this sixteen times before. Can you believe that and we're taking on today? One of the biggest pain points ever in this industry, which is Robo calls and scams, an unwanted calls and I'll tell you what this this is huge. This is the number one complaint to the FCC Can you believe about eleven? percent of calls on our traffic were blocked by our technology just last week. I mean this massive fifty. Eight Billion Robo calls were placed last year in two thousand nineteen. That's eighteen hundred. A second and people are being robbed. robbed the these are crimes. They're being talked out of their money. Ten billion dollars estimated lost last year from this and it's getting worse. I mean this is just awful, but this is the way criminals are. They're preying on people during this pandemic because we've got fears, people are losing jobs. They're looking for jobs. They're interested in their stimulus checks and other things and criminals are preying on all that, and so it's gone up and up and up through the pandemic, and it just has to stop, so we're launching this major initiative today that we hope like the rest of our own carrier moves in the past, the rest of the industry follow suit, and we can really make progress against. Essentially these criminal elements that want to steal from tens of millions of people, and so let's let's dive into it Scam Shield. What is it? What? What are some of these other programs that you are offering today? Well, it's a comprehensive left to right solution. Because one of the things we've learned is that it's this issue is too big and too complicated to solve with any one thing. At the centerpiece of it is scam, idea and scam block our breakthrough technologies that are network driven. Hey, I driven to identify calls and block them, and we're making them better already just in the last three years. We've blocked. We've blocked or identified a scam, likely twenty five billion calls, and so we've got a head start on this, but the thing about it is. This has gotta be. Be Thrust into the public consciousness and people need to start participating in order for us to take it to the next level. You ever get those calls those scams, and then you go into your phone and you block them on your phone. The truth is that doesn't do much good now with the Scam Shield. You'll be able to go into our APP and with one touch block. Block that call or essentially report it to us, because it's not just the ten digits they called with. Because as you know, they randomized those they call with new numbers every time that tells us to investigate the source of that call, and so with the feedback loop from tens of millions of customers using scam shield, our AI driven network technologies will get better and better and better. Better at identifying and blocking these calls for you and already we're thirty percent better than anybody else in the industry. So this is just taking it all to the next level, so let me let me stop you there just just to get some clarification because I know some of the stuff the other carries off horizon. You know. Todd touted the fact that they've stopped six billion calls. Fundamentally you all use a similar system that's one that's mandated by the FCC to be rolled out by the end of next year or sometime next year. So what is different about this? In what what? What is new exactly in terms of some of these I know some of these services like the caller ID feature had been offered in the past. So what is new? What is different from the rest of the industry? Well, let's first talk about scam. ID and scan block. What's different is that ours is network based, and it's for everyone on the network literally. Literally speaking, and so it doesn't rely on a certain rate plan or or APP or having something installed or paying for a feature, which is exactly what verizon offers which is seven dollars and ninety nine cents. A month seven nine hundred dollars a year just about in order on their most popular plans in order to get the best levels of protection. Protection which aren't as as much as we're offering today for free, and and honestly as an industry. We need to do better than that. We you know this is. This is an issue that the carriers are helping to bring to customers. I mean their own networks are bringing you these scams and yet they're profiting from technology. That might be proposed to stop their. Their own technology for bringing you these scams that's crazy and so part of what we do with on carrier moves as we call out industry practices, sometimes practices that we've participated in the past and said look, this is a pain point, and it's gotTa Stop So these technologies at T. mobile or not just better because they're network based and don't rely on Hap. But they're free, and we're not going to charge them. Including as you mentioned caller ID, which is now free, t mobile. And as you mentioned being made better, that industry standard technology talked about stir shaken is basically a pool database of being able to see not only the name of a caller which is important if you have caller ID, which is free now, but that it's a verified mobile user and not a call center, or a robot calling you, and that's really important information for you in order to know, you can safely answer the phone.

Producer Shima Oliaee on Making Dolly Partons America

"Hello and welcome to inside podcasting the show in which creators discussed their craft I'm your host Sky Pillsbury today? I speak with Shima Oli. Who together with Radio Lab Founder Jad Abu Murad produced the award winning show Dolly Parton America. And when I say award-winning, it's kind of personal for me. You see Dolly Parton. America beat out the show. You're listening to right now for the title of Discover Pods Best New podcast of two thousand nineteen. I guess I should also mention that there show just won a peabody award, and sadly inside podcasting wasn't in the running for that one. Regardless the fact that podcast I produced was in the running with a show about Dolly. Parton will always put a smile on my face when I was nine I idolized. Does I spent hours staring at her glossy album covers imagining what it would be like to be glamorous singer. And while that dream come true, it was still an incredible thrill for me to talk to Shema about this show. In case you haven't listened to the series yet. I want to play you a clip. This is from an episode called dixie disappearance in which Jad and she might take a look at some of the contradictions behind Dolly's iconic, persona. The episode centers around a wildly popular tourist event called Don. DIXIE STAMPEDE! It's a Rodeo style dinner theater, in which the civil war is acted out as quote, friendly competition. The word slavery isn't mentioned at any point during the show. In this club Shema and One through the experience of attending the event. Okay so basically! Warn you walk into the, arena. It's huge I wouldn't say it's a football field I would say it's like an Olympic size pool like with arena seats all around. It's like going to the Rodeo. Basically. It's like going to the Rodeo. It's like a ton of der- in the center of this massive oval. How many seats wasn't again? It was one thousand. Dolly Parton. And the whole conceit of this situation. Besides eating a tremendous amount of food, I mean a full chicken and pork line and some soup that has a lot of cream and a biscuit. It was a lot of food decides that. Blue quickly. find out your competition a friendly competition between neighbors. Five folks. Are. For. The whole arena is split in half on one side. You've got the north wind on the other side. And, the announcer who rides in on this horse on his steed. They just. He encourages each side to jeer at the other. Side fireworks. He asked you to kind of jeer at them. And then he goes to the South side and he tells us outside. Northern. Third. Foul smelling. Slobber all gas. Good here, way out of a wet paper bag there. Before we get started. You may hear a few names that you don't recognize. There's Aisha Harris who wrote a critical profile of the stampede after which Dolly removed the word Dixie from the events name. By the way we have put a link to that story in our show notes for this episode. There is also Dolly's nephew. Brian seaver as a kid Brian was talented break dancer, who sometimes performed onstage with Dolly he gives Shima and Jad a tour of Dolly's child home. In Tennessee's smokey mountains, Sarah's marsh is list. Who wrote a book about Dolly? Parton and University of Tennessee, Professor Lynn Sakho taught a class called Dolly Parton America, which is where the series got its name. Okay, let's jump into the interview. We kick things off with Shima revealing how she and Jad prepared for an introductory conversation with Dolly Parton. He comes up to me. This is this is actually kind of fun. He comes up to me. He has a book he like goes into the cabinet behind. My desk gets out a piece of yellow paper painted around up a tape. Sit around the outside of the book and he's like this top secret, but I needed to read this and then. I, need you to prepare me for a conversation with the person now as you know, I've already been researching and doing other things for his talk and other and other ideas that we're kind of cooking up for other series, and so he tells me it's Dolly, and you know so I read. This book is covered in yellow fluorescent paper. Which I think was unnecessary I don't. Don't think anyone cares so I read it I. Write all the questions, and are you writing questions like? Are you knowing okay? We're GONNA do this. Do you have any premise for the show yet? We're like what kinds of questions are you writing down? Just questions pop into your head as you're reading it or this was a very yeah. This is a very moment so this. This is just the introductory conversation. So I also think we just needed to have an introductory conversation you know before you even touch certain things and we were both green, which is the beauty of kind of a jazz reporting is? He's okay with like not knowing anything when he begins which I think. adds to kind of the journey. You go on when you start telling. Telling the story, so the listener is going on the same ride you on which is very, I think emotionally fulfilling so we didn't really know when we started we. We knew enough basics and I brought to him everything I found really interesting. The passages I had compelled questions. We go way went over them edited and he went to interview Dolly and he comes back. I listened to the tape. And you hear this in the third episode of the series where she's like even GonNa. Get a question in because ninety minutes goes by. After his first question, and she just does the Dalai magic

T-Mobile-Sprint Deal, Affecting 100 Million Customers, Approved by Judge

"Got the bane of my investing existence assistance with its latest quarterly report. We're going to dip into the full mailbag but we're going to start with the business story of the day and that is the fact that nearly two years after the merger drove T. Mobile and sprint was announced we are. We're not at the finish line but we are one big step closer to this deal being finished. US District Judge ruled in favor of sprints twenty six billion dollar deal to merge with T. mobile and in terms of the stocks shares a T. mobile mobile up about ten percent shares of sprint up. Seventy two percent. Yeah well in seventy two percent from a really low number yes absolutely is the T.. Mobile pop was yeah. That's that's pretty significant and I like it because it shows the market's expectation that this is going to be actually a good thing for both from both companies to merge into one One one of the things. I've found that Kind of unusual is that The claim is that this is going to me job creating from the get-go most mergers like this Our job destroying because you Overlap on a whole bunch of Back Back Office office things for instance and But these guys are saying yeah. We're going to create something like thirty five hundred dollars. I think is the number for the first year and eleven thousand over the next five years. That's pretty cool. Yes absolutely if they can pull that off and it's interesting because it to your point they're trying to strike a balance they're trying to say. Hey we're going to create jobs but they're also saying to Wall Street. We think about six billion dollars in synergies right. It'd be because yes absolutely some of the HR Dr Finance legal some of those jobs. Go Away I I should mention were again. We're not we're not at the final step here. It's still needs to be approved by the California Public Utilities Commission. But as you said I mean you look at the market reaction it seems teams like maybe not. I don't want to jinx it but it seems like this is going to happen I think it will. The states The thirteenth states that were challenging it led by California for New York New York Attorney General said that she still wants to really think about this as she still believes. The judge was wrong but I think and and reading the the Excerpts from the judge's decision it seems that he was pretty on board saying that this is going to be actually better for the industry T mobile He he called him out T.. Mobile has really challenged the comments. At and T. and verizon The companies that CEO John Legere Ledger Ledger ca routinely called dumb and dumber in his notes but He says the judge that has says that In an should be good for the business and we're having a fourth company stood up in in the form of dish network They're being stood up a with a With the use of a T. mobile and sprint's networks for I believe seven years and a whole whole bunch of customers that are going to be transferred over to them to get them up and running a fourth a cell provider competitor. He mentioned John Ledger. Adjourn and one of my favorite. CEO's never fails to entertain. But I think it's you know ledger because of his antics because because of the way he would go after in particular verizon an at and T. and very public ways. I should also mention both stocks down ever so slightly if you're at GMT and your verizon. You're you're not thrilled about this but maybe it it helps a little bit. John Ledger is not going to be the. CEO of the resulting company. Mike seaver is going to get the corner office on this so that was announced. November is not a new thing with this right and if if you like colorful. CEO's while there's a little bit of sadness with this but it's point out that ledger wasn't just amusing and colorful he. He was also a very effective business. Leader did a great job of adding subscribers to the bottom line for T. Mobile. If he wasn't able to do that then he would have. Just been a mouthy. CEO who wasn't backing it up. No he backed it up. No it did and One of the things he did was he got I think he got the company more more energized in in both getting its customers satisfied which for this industry is big hurdle and And getting the employee is more engaged in happy employees happy customers and that leads to better business and the revenue numbers that this company had been growing like crazy. So yeah they've been they've been doing pretty well bill under ledger and hope they continue under a

Super Bowl XXXIX Recap: Patriots vs. Eagles

"The game we most fans remember. Andy Reid foremost is super bowl. Thirty nine and especially how the game finished up in the last six minutes. But let's set things up here just a little bit coming into Super Bowl all thirty nine. Both the Patriots and Eagles were the best teams in their conference. Both number one seeds both had tremendous seasons. The Patriots went fourteen and two that season season as they were looking for their third super bowl title in four years. Obviously Tom Brady was just beginning his run as the greatest quarterback of all time but he'd already established himself as a two time superbowl champion. And so the odds were stacked against the eagles a little bit in the Super Bowl although the eagles were far and away the best team team in the NFC that season having gone thirteen and three really they were essentially a one loss team. They lost to the Pittsburgh steelers in the middle of the season but they had clinched the number for one seat in the conference with two games left in the season and basically didn't play anybody in the final two games and that's why they went thirteen and three. The Eagles probably could have been a fifteen in one team if they'd actually played their starters in the final two games of the season but thirteen and three is nothing to sneeze at and it was certainly good enough to get them the number one seed in the playoffs The Eagles defeated the Minnesota Vikings rather handily in the NFC divisional round and then in the NFC championship game. As you heard me talk about on the last edition of BG and memories when we took a look back at the ten greatest moments in Eagles NFC championship game. History when they dispatch the Falcons pulling away in the second in half winning that game. Twenty seven to ten on New England also had a pretty easy time in the postseason. They won their divisional round game against the Indianapolis Colts. It's twenty two three and then they won the AFC title against the steelers. Forty one to twenty seven. Bill Belichick Charlie. Weis the offensive coordinator at that time for New England Oakland and on the side. Of course you had Andy Reid calling the plays and Jim Johnson The defensive coordinator at the Blitz Happy Defensive Coordinator one of the big story lines. The the biggest story line going into Super Bowl thirty nine was of course the health of terrel owens who was hurt against the Dallas cowboys a few weeks before the end of the season He had A. He broke his leg on a horse collar. Tackle that has now been deemed illegal because of that hit but as the game started getting closer it started to appear as though Teo Jio would be able to get on the field and Tara loans for the Eagles in two thousand and two thousand four was the difference. He took the eagles from being a very very good team. Urine in your out to an almost unbeatable team That season in fourteen games really was just thirteen games because he was hurt early in that game against the cowboys he caught seventy any seven passes for twelve hundred yards and fourteen touchdowns for the eagles that season for the first time in his career. Donovan mcnabb had a true number one receiver seaver to throw the ball to but the eagles offense performed quite well whether well without Tara loans in the two playoff games but to beat the Patriots it was clear the eagles goals. We're GONNA need him and he managed to get. He managed to get back in time six weeks after surgery to repair his broken right ankle. He was on the the field for the start of Super Bowl. Thirty nine Donovan. mcnabb had his best season. An Eagle in two thousand and four mostly because terrel owens was on the outside and he and mcnabb was outstanding in two playoff wins against the Vikings and the Falcons mcnabb had always struggled in those NFC title game but he played very well against Atlanta Atlanta. One or the other storylines that Freddie Mitchell was running his mouth. He came into the game talking a lot of smack about safety Rodney Harrison telling Harrison that he he was gonna have something for him and then in the game you know Freddie Mitchell caught one pass which late in the fourth quarter and Harrison had Two interceptions as we'll get to here in just Dominica and of course the Patriots were looking to officially become a dynasty. They had beaten the rams had upset. The Rams in the Super Bowl three years before they had failed to get back to the super bowl the year after that. But in two thousand three or just after the two thousand three season they beat the Carolina Panthers and one of the most underrated super bowls in NFL NFL history. And we're looking for their third title in four years. Andy Reid looking for that first title after finally getting the Eagles back to the Super Bowl for the first time since nineteen eighteen eighty so that was the setup as the teams gathered on the field in Jacksonville Florida for Super Bowl.

What is T-Mobile without John Legere

"The firebrand see of T.. Mobile is bing do. The company announced that he would step down next May with chief operating officer President. Mike seaver taking the reins of the company. This this is a big move considering. So much of T. Mobile's ankerium identity is linked to Legis Brash and rebellious nature. What do you think so as you mentioned? It's a big move. It's obviously coming at a very interesting time for T.. Mobile and the wireless industry. Yup We have five G.. which t mobile plans take nationwide and cover two hundred million people on December sixth? They announced that the other week take they have obviously the sprint merger. which we've been covering still right? This point is kind of in limbo. We'll see yes so it's a very interesting time to make the announcement that you know a the CEO who has been so aligned with the company is going to leave not long after the steelers hope in their opinion hopefully gonNA close now. I think it's clear that this company we need to address it they were they. Were getting questions about this back at the end carrier ventures two weeks back and addition. There's all this chatter about John. Leger going to we work which he's officially denied. Yes on the call today with with analysts and reporters he flat out said he's not going to work contrary to reports that circulate over the last week that said he was in the running and was talking to Softbank. Softbank who has a significant stake in we work about taking over Softbank is the company that also owns sprint yet. Who's obviously been working very closely to try to get this deal across the finish line line? He's not going there right so take us through some of the changes. Obviously Mike seaver. WHO's been around for awhile? He's been around throughout this entire carrier of run of the last several years. Here's is taking over a CEO. But there were some other personnel changes. Yes so Mike. SEAVER is being bumped up from CEO to CEO. Yep now with US movies already the president he's GonNa Remain President Ledgers remaining on the board. He's not going anywhere. Braxton Carter one of ledgers lieutenant is going also stay around at least until I believe. July's is when they say he's the chief financial officer right now and he's he's hanging around. At least I believe until July is what they said. Never Ray who's been the. CTO is now bumped up to President President of technology. What exactly that means is necessarily clear? Maybe he just gets more money. I'm assuming doing the same thing could be and Neville by the way for for additional context. He's the one that really kind of pushed out the super fast. Roll out four G network. And he's doing that now with the five guru he has a guy who's completely redone you you know obviously in conjunction with other towns members of their team. He's completely redone their network. And we've done a very impressive job building it up from the reputation that they had years years ago to a much stronger more viable network that is today and so the big question here You Know Going Back to ledger. Brash Nature Mike. See Averred who've so you know I've dealt with for a long time. We both for awhile. He's definitely not John Leger. He's a bit more bundle is a bit more straight laced Very Smart Guy. But you know whenever you're going I'm from a company that's run from a colorful character like ledger to Sodas a bit more straight laced. Mike like what do you think is that is that can have a fundamental l.. Change in the company the weights run. I can't imagine it won't Both are well known industry Veterans Right seaver was also not just like ledger. was I believe a clear wire and Microsoft for software while Yep Definitely Different Personalities Between Ledger and seaver. But you know they're talking about about T.. Mobile keeping this. You know whatever's been working not breaking right right so I can't imagine they're going to get rid of all their things like T. mobile Tuesday's or you taking shots at the competition. That's very much part of the brand at this point right right. It just may not be legend doing firing those guns absolutely. I also

Broncos trade up to select Missouri QB Lock

"Lock to over as Mizzou's QB one after five games of his freshman season. He started the next forty six leaving school with ninety nine career touchdown passes. A traditional pocket passer law has a big arm a big frame at six four to twenty five and his sneaky, good athlete. No one is more confident than him. Although we can get in trouble, trusting his arm too much. All right. So drew lock goes to the Broncos Johnny how long before he's the starter week one. He beats out he won't be. He won't beat out flacco, I don't think. But Joe flacco is having draft draft day remember to sort of case keenum case keenum goes the quarterbacks drafted he's at the Rams draft here golf the Redskins. Now the draft Wayne has this kind of Steve Bergische flacco last year they draft Lamar Jackson and other draft. Drew lock. Yeah. So I had said all along that the Broncos the Broncos staff spent a lot a lot of time with you lock senior bowl a lot of time with him. So I wasn't. I was surprised when I heard the Broncos were very very hot heavy after July, but they decided to trade down no fan number twenty and the they'd drew lock waiter, and they were able to get him back to back picks with don't riser. So they could move there by John Elway to get through locking the second round. And the thing is if if. Hits. But Johnny why get flacco in the first place. Why that's that's why I'm not a big fan of Joe flacco. I mean, I've said all along that if I if I'm running an offense I wanna quarterback that's going to be able to make some place when things break down because I know my offensive line isn't going to be able to to hold up every single every single play. I look our experiences are now. Is the Sean that's our experience. Now like we see that. I mean, everything is sort of jaded with the line. Play will ask you but chunk still make something's happening. If you haven't slot play. Well in Denver the record done done. So drew lock in is a pretty good f-. He's a great basketball player. In fact, he thought he was going to go play basketball in college. So drew locks and athlete that can make some things happen. A couple years ago. We saw that too degree against Texas in the academy.

"For details. Roberts the midday live from city field as we sit here about forty minutes away from the Mets home opener. They are taking on the Washington nationals. The Yankees are taking part of the Baltimore Orioles. Home opener later this afternoon. You'll hear the game on the station is James Paxton will make his second start as a Yankee as they try to cool off the red hot. You can't stop them. Both to more Orioles did lose yesterday, but therefore into their off to a surprisingly good start eight seven. Seven three three seven sixty six sixty six the number. Let's go to Mark in Newark, New Jersey. Hey, Mark, Mark. How are you? Good morning, fellas. I gotta go up about my beloved New York Mets and jets one one point of the point out yet, by the way that official non I'm not going there. Joe you want to go. I'm going to go. I would love it. Mitch, man. I couldn't wait for baseball season. Gotta say is. Hey, cool. Okay. Cool. I think that the Mets gotta do. Just like the jets did make that move that seems to be the right move. Did we lose him? So I think we lost him. I hope the move is the right move for the jets Levy on bell. We'll we'll see how we also I'm afraid of kaikal. I'm telling you. Not had a spring training and the track record over the last few years of starting pitchers that sign late and this is particularly 'cause we've already started the season. It's not good. You know, it's not a really good track record in. So if you sign him, let's say it's a three year deal. Right. I doubt it would be. But let's say got him on a throw. You're right. I get it sing. Yeah. Hopefully contributes this year, but you got him next year. He got him the year after it's a good long-term investment. But if it's a one year deal he's got to perform, and I'm worried he's not gonna perform. I don't think you just look at the back of his baseball card or look at his success against the Yankees. Look at a success in the playoffs and say, oh, it's a no brainer. I think we are in such short of territory now where it's April, and he hasn't signed that it would scare me that doesn't mean I have come on. Did sign. I don't think he'd be you know, pitching like right away. It will be a while before we would seem it'd be a while. But then when we see him what is he here? Well, Tony implant, we've probably is not happening. So probably not Tony's imports Saint Lucy. Tony our you could see good to see Dom Smith tuna could you a couple years ago when they first four them up. Kevin wong? Tried to make a power arrived of him. He was there for quarters season and hit nine over here. One nine eight. Yep. Yup. And everything that's that's great. Tony. Smith was never really a power. In the minor leagues. And. Colonial thing. Let Dombi Dom. Yeah. Let him go the other way, and that's going to kind of help them. Evolve. Chili Davis so far with the approach it. He's got with this team. I gotta like what you're saying there. You know, probably the story I heard in spring training. Mat Matlock, which rookie year in seventy two way before your time. Evan who? John NAT lack, of course. Yes. Seventy one he made us start. I thought ever against the reds Concepcion. Hit a Homer something. I any shut him out the rest of the game pinch forum like in the eighth in and and they took the lead. So now he's in the locker room, and he the winning pitcher if they hold the lead and Mets reliever came in and beluga game. Not surprising. But surprisingly, it was Tom Seaver. As a relief pitcher. I don't remember that the game before the all-star game. Yes. You know what? Now that you say I didn't they and if I'm not mistaken didn't they use coups been in that game too? I'm not sure for the people who became c relieved in that game. I'm gonna find that out. We're talking about seventy one people may thirty seventy one here instead of doing thirty five right now seventy one was Matt lacks first year, but that wasn't his rookie season because he only made seven seventy two. Seventy two seventy two in the yet. All right. Seventy one. All right. I'll find out and I don't know about that. Because seventy two was his first full year and anyone fifteen at ten at year. But I remember that right before the all star break, and I'm not one hundred percent, sure. Two year. Ev I believe Matt lack Kouzmin end Seaver all pitched in that game. Well, here's the I've got the three of them. Okay. You nailed it. First of all Seaver came out blue at the ninth inning starting pitcher was John Matlock that day tug McGraw in and got one out. And then Seaver came in not only was it the last game before the all-star break. I think it was a double header. I think it was the second game of a doubleheader. It was July eleventh my birthday nineteen seventy one. Okay. What's seventy one? It was the second game of a doubleheader. And that's when Seaver came out of the bullpen blew it. They lost five to three in Cincinnati. Who's been pitching game to know the first game of the doubleheader. No, he didn't always worse game of the doubleheader Nolan. Ryan started and got bombed and they lost. But in the second game of the doubleheader Tom Seaver out of the bullpen in Cincinnati and blew the game for John Matlock? So that's a good job. I told him I was very good. Very and the dump Smith thing, I always thought this Dom Smith when you look at his minor league numbers was never a power hitter. And he played in Vegas where? Inflated. And for some reason, I don't know why that was like this belief that Dom Smith was a power hitter. You're the same thing right Ernie. And we would what joke with each other. Power hitter. Who thinks he's a power hitter? And so maybe that was a part of his struggles that they brought them up here and said Eichel pull everything Changle hit home runs. Dom success in the minor leagues was hitting well over three hundred I'll give you some of these numbers twenty seventeen in Vegas hundred and fourteen games. Listen to these numbers three thirty sixteen home, runs seventy six RBI's and one hundred and fifteen games. Decent pot power. The fact is he three thirty. Yup. The year before that in Binghamton three. Oh, two three sixty seven on bass, fourteen home runs Ninety-one RBI's one hundred thirty games. That's not a power hitter. That's a good hitter. And maybe that's what Dom is. But what I really want to see is his chance to play. And I think it's tough. If that's going to happen on this team with pita, Lonzo, I think the only way it happens is if they stick him in the outfield, and I think he's a good athlete. So with more experience in the outfield. I think he's only gonna get better and better with that opportunity. Indeed. But it's a fair. Point that the the philosophy changes benefited guys, maybe it's going to benefit Dom Smith. Maybe more than anybody else. Maybe so far so good. Our he's in Brooklyn. Ari? Our you. Hey, guys. How're you doing good? Yeah. I wanna get the Mets the quick Evan for you. You know, my my Scott Rolen rains on tomorrow. No. We we mentioned that a couple of times. Yeah. So look look looking for that. I'd rather hear you interview him. But okay. What can you do? I trust me. I'm actually rather. Mike get to him. Yeah. Exactly. Okay. I know everyone's thinking they started level one last year. So comparing to this show, I think that the big differences that. Last year. They didn't have a good team. They just happened to get. It was very flukey the eleven one star. But this year, they actually have you know, they actually have a very good team. So the fact they're starting hot is much different than last year because the team is it much less fluky my point where we'll another thing with his team. And I keep pointing this out. This is a lot younger team than that. That started the season last year. You know, you had Frazier there you had cesspit is there yet guys like that? And I understand you got Robbie can here. He's an older guy. I get that. But this team is young different feel to this team in last year's team. I do agree. But I think it's easy now not for you. But far less caller to say, oh that was fluky at eleven and one did you really think tonight thought, hey, maybe they have going, right? But you're spot on with your point. Here are the facts, why don't we check it on the Mets opening day lineup year ago? Good. Brandon Nimmo same thing leading. Here are the two Sixers you'll win assessment is Jay Bruce. Jay Bruce forgot about him as drubel Cabrera Hugo Todd. Frazier. Adrian Gonzala yet team then you had Kevin lucky catching great, and I'm Ed Rosario at shortstop, which is still right? So outside of Nimmo and Rosario Lukoil replaced who it is a younger team. No question. But when they're eleven and one I think all of us very thought that we thought they were on their way. No doubt about right now, very special moment here at city field because that reef or reef is being handed to the manager of the New York. Mets Mickey Callaway the festivities. How he roses out on the field? I see that. He's beginning me announcements. And Mickey is getting that world-famous opening day wreath or wreath which what is it ref- with a t h wreath. Somebody is that somebody down in the field with a green Darrell strawberry status. Correct. You wanted to why was the St. Patty's day. That's right. It may be game used because they used to wear that. I know. Yeah. How he's beginning. The opening ceremonies where he's gonna announced the nationals. They're all gonna get booed. And then the mental be announced, rather, soon- Richardson, Manhattan. Hi, richard. How are you? I go edit. You know, Joe you said the worst day was today to see the trade metro lousy. It was sped the Holcombe around the whole mix that time sixty seventy five around eighty one was bad. So but really really went down. They went into like a five six tailspin. Back on my worst, twenty four hours with the Mets ever. Let's go back. Toby told the seven nine hundred seventy three when we had a tweet to game lead again, and we lost two games back to back. Twenty four hours stat was bad. That was game six to catfish. Matlock started game several Georgetown shooter started that game. I try should've started game seven. Seven. Get to sell. Get bombed Seaver pitched welling game six loss to catfish. Right. And Matlock gave it up actually we met. Let Gabe home runs in that game to Reggie Jackson with the camping to. Five years ago. Approximately today opening day Shea Stadium. I'm nine years old. Here's the work. We lived in. I'm walking home from school PS one sixty six on thirty third street in a story. I'm going home. And there was a borough on thirty between thirty second and thirty third on Broadway. And I walk in. I'm nine years old. And I'm watching I guess against taxes I stayed for maybe two treat that if they chased me out matching that nowadays walking home from school watching the game in a power and then going back home now. I could happen in two thousand eighteen today. That's not that's not added. A realm. The same thing would happen. You'd be there for banners, by the way. Joe? I know you're very politically, correct.

Lynn is in Manhattan island, man. How are you? I'm fine. As usual. Great show. A couple of questions I'd not a question statement. If the Yankees will now look at the Mets and what they're doing at the plate because of Kirk flood. They'll understand situation baseball. I don't care about two hundred seventy home runs. They're praying beautiful old guard baseball more power to than my question to you is with Ronnie, darling. Probably a couple of weeks away from us at this point. He's going to continue. I mean, I know about the book and all that. But he not going to continue with their. Why are you still on doing the game doing the game taste probably couple boots away from us? They knew that they he's not doing this. And why anymore? No. I mean, he released a statement this morning that basically said he's not going to talk about the whole, right, right? Right. It is what it is going to move on. Because that story is had so much legs Lenny's doing every show in America away. In a weird way. I don't think Lenny wants if he really believes in. It's true that he never said what Ron darling claim, obviously don't want to be you don't want. Something said about you. That isn't true, obviously, we start there.

"I don't think we can pick on the Mets today. The we broke this yesterday. Jacob degrom got a new five-year extension one hundred and thirty seven and a half million dollars. I saw one person say this was the Mets saying thank you to degrom. I I would like to amend that and say thank you to come. But it's also I'm really sorry. Jacob degrom that you won the Cy Young award with the one point seven ERA. But you went ten and nine because we don't to score runs when you pitch so to make up for that blunder offensively that is not your fault. We will we'd like to give you this nice contract extension one hundred and thirty seven and a half million dollars. I know it's kind of a I mean, the Mets have already had some fun things the season happened to them, which you know. Thank you. Yeah. Right. That obviously if you can't give me a contract that's a nice way of thinking us. But. They're doing the doing the right things to. Yeah. Finally, paying via paying degrom extending him. I guess next would be no of Noah's probably shot himself in the foot. Yeah. We'll see. But also see there renaming. The address. No, I didn't see that. Oh, tell me about that the renaming were about to call Shea Stadium. City field. Thank you. Just call. It. Shea is change. It makes it easier for me because she was actually kind of dumpy placed, but actually, yeah. But you can still have a new ballpark and say the new and then after a while you just dropped new and still becomes Jason anyways. They're the street addresses changing. It'll be I believe was it is a nineteen that there'd be nineteen Tom Seaver. Dr. I did not know that good for them. The wore nineteen right? Yeah. I think or fifty one or something like that. Right. But but anyway. After Tom Tom Seaver good for them. That is great that. If you guys you don't know, Tom Seaver is not dead. He's still alive, but he is suffering from dementia dementia. Yeah. Really really sad really really bad dementia. So yeah, that's really too bad. Was one of the best. Yeah. I mean, probably good for them. Good for them. That's the right thing to do. Near you'd think about of all the great players that have played there. I mean, Tom Seaver is definitely I think they don't really remember if they've ever had like any homegrown talent though, like they drafted someone and just matured that person in into the league and that person retired. David wright. Okay. About him. Maybe David Wright, maybe David Wright. But. It's fan. But, but yeah, that's the reason. I mean, you think about all the great players who came from through there. They all came from somewhere else. No. They started off great like all think Laker Dwight Gooden started off great. But then fizzled out Darrell strawberry. Strawberry. Same way. White good. No. When he was young boycott Koerbel. He looked like I mean, he looked dominant. He was unreal. He was unreal. Human human Darrell strawberry team that eighties team eighties. Mets team should have won three or four World Series. Yes. I mean, they were so good. They were so good almost didn't win. Not only. Did they not only listen to this? Not only did they did they win just one the one they almost lost that in the series. But the but Houston took them to Houston took them pretty deep in the playoffs. Yeah. In the Houston almost knocked them out before they even got to the World Series that year. So David Johnson led Mets team. But good for Jacob degrom to get an extension. So yeah, it's a it's a nice little positive doing something. Give them some money. Finally, doing something. Right. Exactly. And Noah syndergaard's been on on the forefront of that by the. The way he made nice with the people of Syracuse. He went around and and waved a Syracuse flag before their expectation game, which was good afford to do that. Because he did kind of rip the trip. Lord, data is just a touch. But they made it all right now, they're onto Washington open. Now, we are saying positive things about the mess. But there are some negative things as well. All right. Go ahead. And they do have they do have an exhibition game coming up and where they play in that exhibition. I don't know who they're playing. It's just where they're playing it. Where is that the carrier dome? Oh, they're playing it at the carrier dome. They really I did not know that I'm sending you a photo real quick. I did not know that I thought they were playing their AAA affiliate Syracuse at the AAA stadium. That would make sense, right? No. They were gonna play that at the carrier. So just sent you an Email. You got to look at this photo and basically because the carrier dome. I, you know, many people may not know this. But it does not have a baseball field attached to. No, it doesn't. It's a football field slash basketball court. Yeah. So they're bringing in a mound. They're making a mound. So they're making them. Oh my God. This is nuts. This is nuts. They're making a mound on a pile of dirt in a box. I wanna I want to see what this looks like when it's all said and done. This is dumb. You shouldn't have played it in there. No, no, no, no outdoors and just be done with it and get out of here their own space. I mean, it's it's their stadium that they could use. It's not like they're going. I mean here they have to actually last permission. There have right over Syracuse university, but they have an affiliate. They've been go. Hey, guys, we're going to we're going to occupy the stadium for a day. Dean Obama's or Jim boeheim say in this whatsoever. The fairly don't they walk in? And I'll why is this. No, we're not doing this. We are now playing baseball in this place. What is going on? I don't care if it's the Mets. That's crazy inside the carrier dome. How many people do they think they're gonna get for this game? Eight exhibition game against your AAA affiliate in the carrier dome. There please all seventy five thousand people. Carrier domas gigantic. That's why when they corner off a section for basketball when they one of the end zone, they make it the basketball court. That's the way that school can always sets tendons records because it can all thirty six thousand people to come play basketball there every single game, right? How many people you think are going to fill the carrier dome to watch the Mets play an exhibition game. You kidding? Oh my goodness. That's funny. If a tree falls in a forest, I guess, we'll have to count it. Right. Right. What if three people show up or God? I want to see this game because it doesn't. As it just going to be all grass field too. They rolled out the football turf. Are they playing on a football field or they not changing the football field. Look to it. Yeah. Here's the one thing you bring that up because because we see time and time again football fields go into baseball stadiums. Right. The pinstripe bowl and college football is played at Yankee Stadium. It's kinda weird. Right. You watch the gaming like, wow, that's Yankee Stadium. But they put a football field together with it. And we saw Fenway park host of host of football game Jackson thing and every year Oakland for the first two months of the season play on play on a baseball field. Right. So so we never see baseball. We don't see baseball infiltrate a football stadium for just a game. Right. We we may see like you said in Oakland the combination with Miami had that for a number of years way back in the day. But we never we don't. We don't see baseball going. Hey, you know, what would be awesome? If we played a baseball game at Heinz field like we don't see that. Or like the Red Sox going? You know, what we'll do we'll play at Gillette stadium because the the dynamics. Don't usually work the way the field is built does doesn't usually work everything here. Looking at the way this picture. This can't be where the final position of the mound. Is right. I was I was thinking I was wondering the same thing. It's like because I mean, it's not from that hash Mark. It's not three hundred feet two or four hundred feet to the sideline. Yeah. Look, right. It does. This does not look like you could put a baseball stadium in here. Yeah. Because von plan there. I'll be hitting home runs. I could hit a home run this. If it's I don't know this. This isn't fake news. Is it? This is. No. This is Mets doing Mets thing guy. Just when we thought things were going right for them. Yeah. Blended the carrier dome. Fantastic. Well, done season starts on Thursday. I can't wait. But again back to Jacob degrom. If you're if you're the Mets like I said earlier, you gotta give them the Accenture. He could have had let me I can't begin to stress this. He could have had one of the most historic baseball seasons. Ever by a pitcher? If the Mets could have scored runs when he played and say, you know could have scored run a run run. How about Ron? That's a good idea. He he had a one point seven zero ERA. He didn't give up more than three runs a game in outside of the first outing of the season the second outing of the season the rest of the way if the Mets could score when he pitched he could.

"Seven sixty six sixty six. Sad news talk Seaver fraud. Yesterday is just family announced. He was retiring from public life because he's suffering from dementia now, so I'm forty six and to say that I did to send them I saw the primary receiver would not be accurate. I really jumped into baseball probably what I was about nine years old right around one thousand nine hundred eighty one or so, and so that's when I started to get a true sense of him. And how good he was. And he was fantastic. I think it was an eighty one or eighty two for the reds fourteen into something like that. And when he came back to the Mets and eighty three I was beyond excited. I was very, and I know everybody was obviously after the disastrous trade stupid is that was back in seventy seven with the reds. Listen, I knew plenty about Pat Zachary, but I didn't know about duck fled. But I didn't know enough about Seaver is met from before that as a kid, but knew that he was obviously one of the greats in areas he's coming back. Now his time that year Mets were just starting to come around. Traded for teeth midseason. They got brought strawberry up that year rule nine and fourteen but he had a three five, but a couple of things I do remember is that beginning of that year that the first half of that season. He was still a sharpest could be and what really is remarkable about how he was able to be affective as he was was the leg drive and his legs were like tree trunks absolute tree trunks. And that's where he got all his power from to throw the ball ninety five ninety six miles an hour. And throwing it up in the Zona. Never forget. I remember Keith. I think when he was still at the car does not mistaken was Sears three thousand strikeout and a fastball up at his is that I just remember Kif waving at kinda. Shaking his head to walking away. Like, how do you even remotely try to hit that pitch show? That's one thing. I remember it wasn't. He was decent in Eighty-three was prime. But he's still knew how to pitch and he was still pretty good. Sieber was not easy. It was not an easy guy. A little bit on the difficult front with fan sometimes with with people in general because he knew he was Tom Seaver. And he knew how good he was. And he understood that and but he didn't try to like, I wouldn't use the word. He wasn't a jerk or anything like that. He was you interviewed him though. Right. I did once he was he was. He just had that edgy about him. But you could tell it was the edge of being Tom Seaver because that's what he had to pitch with. That was his mentality of having to pitch with that edge of I am better than you. And I'm gonna shove this clear up your keys dry like it was an F you every time he went on to the mound and had an amazing amazing edge, but did go and interview one time in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight ish ninety nine whatever year it was did Nolan. Ryan got an a hall of fame because I had a friend who's doing some games in Texas for the Rangers. And s we could get some sound bytes for Seaver on Ryan. Right. And I'd heard singing Sieber in interviews, and such an always let you know. He was Tom Seaver, but he spoke so reverentially about Nolan Ryan. It really struck me. And the other thing that struck me as he is one of those guys where you are standing in front of him, and you can't help but say, that's Tom. Yeah. Like, he he's still carried that. Yeah. That presence about him as a broadcaster out to shave for it as a fan. I went to Tom Seaver day in the eighties when they Ritz retired his number, and I just remember it being great because he's behind home plate. He didn't say very much a, Mike. And he said, I don't know any other way to thank you. Then to do what I would naturally do any ran out to the mound. And he took a bow in each direction. I just thought it was it was really cool. I think I still have the poster from Thomson. Yeah. It's funny to be a Mets fan and be my age because I've got nothing no memory of Seaver in the time that I actually like got to know him, quote unquote is a fan as their prod casting, which is is crazy considering just how unbelievable he was. But what I think he's done for the Mets and for the fan base was he to have someone like him who pitched for the Mets and really like establish an identity for the Mets. That was not anyone here. Play this game called them. The franchise call the franchisee will always be the franchise. I think that that is something that even if you didn't get a chance to watch him. You just knew that your team has that history. And that's something I think Mets fans whether you're by eight so you're thirty five in never saw or even if you're twenty-five or young cousins who are thirteen and fourteen you know, I think that you always understand like, hey, I can be proud of the history of my organization because Tom Seaver was the one who started and created this identity for the Mets, and he was someone who who lived it and someone who like really the spirit two of New York, which is, you know, he's not a New Yorker obvious from California. The really like has that that that spirit? And and so you feel attached to him even though you have you have no attachment people. My age are way more tach to like David Wright. And it's it's. It's really sad. And this is the part. I think that his family is one hundred percent doing the right thing. I know a lot of people have you deal with this. You know, people are listening people are us, you know, you deal with this. And it is the better thing for the family to remove someone like that from the public spotlight, and he hasn't been out there to begin with. You know, here's Larry I someone like him who did carry himself cry that kind of pride. Exactly. And I think you always talk about how like athletes die twice because you retire. And then, you know, this is a weird. This is a weird situation. And so I think people who have the memories of Tom Seaver like I think he would want you to have the memory of him with the dirt on his knee bleep you going nine innings only giving up one run or two runs. I mean, he probably should have had another Cy Young award. I think he got hosed one year because like people on the ballot decided to writers decided not to turn in ballots because they were protesting Pete Rose being banned from baseball and like he should have won another one. But all that aside his career stands alone. I mean, it's so distinguished, and I'm glad that we'll take our memories of him now exceeds married members of him, then it and take them into the future. Not gives fans something to be proud of like you said you talk about somebody who before king Griffey before. Mariano Rivera had the highest percentage of votes that sold you rather. You liked his attitude or not you'll the respect daddy. Daddy, garner date. My grandmother's been dealt with dementia for probably about five or six years. It's tough because it's good days and his bad days and days when she know who I am in today's she doesn't now I remember being in Baltimore and being around John Mackey and him being out in the public guide. You know, that was his wife decision to have him up there. But it was kind of sad to see. It was a real real live type of reality. Check of sometimes with the consequences can be of plants such violent game. And my grandmother. She never played a sport. This is just something that we really haven't figured out. You know, rather is dementia. Alzheimer's, whatever you wanna call it is this a difficult thing to deal with and we're still trying to figure it out. But this is something that everybody can really you can really understand because it affects so many different families, and so many different people within. I think is good because he just wants to be at his vineyard. And that's one thing. Sometimes you hold on a certain memories and he wanted to Gartner's his vendor. And I think that's a great thing. So I feel all the people that his wife trust and family. Trust can come to him. Think about this for a second just to really define his greatness. Talking about bitch and nine innings complete games. Tom Seaver for the first eleven years of his career. Was in double figures in complete games every year. I mean, he nine. Seven times he threw more than two hundred and seventy innings. I mean, that's ridiculous ridiculous. And look we all know now's a lot different and never gonna get near that. But even then that's workhorse, and the other thing I will say as as a as a young kid growing up rushing home that first day that opening day and Eighty-three when he came back because. And I just went back and looked at the box score. And remembered this it was Seaver and Carlton Steve Carlton for the Phillies at shea Mets won the game to nothing. Pete Rose was playing first base for the Phillies at that point. And of course, Phillies went on that year and had a terrific season. But that was that Eighty-three season was kind of the start the other thing that was not right. That was tough. I just remember thinking God. And you see that. On the Red Sox in eighty six. I know he wasn't on the postseason roster is injured. I. But but he was he was there and game six of before they come back to the dugout and their Seaver and Clements next to each other. You don't want to see the Mets lose the World Series with Tom Seaver celebrating. With the Red Sox anyway, eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six let's get a couple of calls in on it. Real quick. Stephen Harrington park is up next on the fan. What's going on? Great. Are you guys are great? I gotta tell you. I listen to you every day you make my drive on the salesman. I drive all day. And I listen to all three of you. Appreciate that. I just wanted to say one thing I feel bad and him. I know what it's all about. But. He was he was two hundred percent. What you said he could not be the nicest person at time. It could be growing later if he could definitely be gruff. I had an incident with him, and I was very respectful of them. I took my ten year old at the time. This is twenty years ago to a met game. And you remember the diamond club. Yep. Yep. To go eat, and as we were getting on the elevator. They had his uniform trained on the wall number forty one. And my son who is nine at the time turns who was that. That was Tom Seaver shoot a form. Probably one of the greatest pitchers that ever pitched in the game. And I turn around and who's standing there, but Tom Seaver, and I called them. And I said, I think it's the game in July. They pitch perfect game. And Jimmy equals broke it up. And I couldn't go, and I gave him to a friend. You know, what he said he turned to my nine year old son and said, I hope you grow up not to be stupid as your father. Backward. A little cash that would that's that's funny. He was gruff though. He was he could be gruff. Instance, I don't really think so, but I also feel like that. A guy that needed that that? That's just who he was. And that's how he pitched. I think it was just a little like a different because I know guys can be how they again guys can be like that today. I don't know. I felt like there was something that was more permissive. Alec. You'd have to be a good guy back. Not not that. It wasn't a good guy. He was after social media friendly and perfect cameras athletes. I feel like sometimes have to be perfect all the time. No, it wasn't like that. At that point. I mean, it's it's very different like Thurman Munson wasn't winning any Mr. kinesiology awards. Right. He was a fantastic player. He was so incredibly influential. That's Yankee teams, it's like people. I feel like started talking about personalities of guys much later the seventies and early eighties. I don't think that was such a story. Charles Barkley type years similar. Yeah. Role models supposed to be nice all this stuff. Our expectations of athletes have changed a lot in terms of the personal stuff. Allen Atlantic City quickly out. What's up, buddy? Hey, guys, doing just a fast thing about the Tom Seaver? I actually that that game in nineteen eighty three when he came back. Yeah. I actually work to go there. I was by myself. I'm glad I went. I would hope you guys can look I wish I had a dollar for every time the Tom Seaver pitched against Steve calm. And I bet you if you look this.

And now just like Noam Laden was just saying in in the top of the hour. News report hall of fame pitcher, Tom Seaver suffering from dementia, not make any more public appearances retiring from public life of just share something on them, real quick. 'cause I you know, this this speaks for itself. And certainly, you know, he's seventy four years old nine hundred sixty nine a long time ago when the Mets won the World Series is remember my grandmother, and I'm young this was like seventy seven right. So six years old just give away my age and the Mets traded Seaver because they couldn't come to terms on a salary. He wasn't really asking for terribly a lot and he pitched them to two World Series of one one one three Cy youngs. Which is a good thing. And I just remember her the biggest Mets fan the world just angry for weeks grandmother, angry at grandma Gallagher huge met fan, and she died right before they want an eighty six to see that. But I mean, Tom Seaver in this town is royalty. And and for this to happen and get this news, you you just hate to hear that. It's just so sad.

I mean, well, not hey, she's been getting all kind of great press eater. But she's been getting the bad press because of these expressions of intolerance and hate, yes. When you say that, you know, it's all about the Benjamins in regards to Israel. I've a feeling a couple of Jewish folks will take that events. Yes. Right. So it's amazing. And and what this is doing to the Democrats. I it's just incredible that they came into an office in terms of the house Nancy Pelosi. She's a new speaker, and they won forty seats in the midterms and you could call maybe not a Blue Wave, but a mini Blue Wave. Yeah. They have all of them in the world -solutely, this is going badly for them. I don't know how else to put it because there's a power struggle right now and all the energy and all about momentum is behind the AOC side of the party as opposed to Nancy Pelosi who doesn't seem to be able to control though, everything that's happening in terms of like, for instance, like the new green deal how does that get out into the public domain where no one even really bothered to like edited CEOs? He just threw a draft and against the wall. And that was the unwilling to work thing. For example, it Pelosi saw beforehand, right? Exactly. Instead of what you're gonna pay people are willing to work relating to work air travel. We're going to go all high speed rail. We're going to retrofit every building and apartment in the country is gonna cost not billions. On a draft. It should never have gotten out there. And retracted that doesn't make those mistakes. You could disagree with Pelosi from an ideological perspective. Yeah. But that she she's very efficient. That's the only way I can put it. So all those things happen, by the way since we bought it up..

"I mean, you you talk about the clubhouse in what attitudes are and things of that nature player that could once have been described as the next Tom Seaver a modern day, Tom Seaver in Matt Harvey as we all know finally parted ways with them. The Mets and vice versa. What do you tell perspective employers about Matt Harvey and his mental state readiness to compete in try and get back to that status of being the next Tom Seaver, Scott? Well, the the the fact that you've done it is huge in in these processes because you know, it exists. You're not you're not advocating something may happen. You've known it has happened. And so consequently with Mads case it was really about as physicality has. You know, he put his career on the line after Tommy John surgery, and and and for the betterment of team certainly won't be on doctor's recommendations with the number of innings Eddie through and the result of that was another injury where he had to have. Drastic outlet surgery and that surgery which encumbers nerves it's it just takes time player to get his command back and certainly the last half of the season. That's command came back when he got traded over to Cincinnati. You're really saw him get back to ninety six ninety seven miles an hour velocity. And but the key thing is is that the consistency with his command going forward was ever improved. And so illustrating that and getting back physically was I think he watermark for for Matt. And for owners. No. And the fact that if he has that kind of capacity physically, I think everyone knows mentally what he can do because he's already illustrated that. If healthy he can be number one for a team and take it to the places that most owners desire north Scott before I let you go. I do want to give you the the floor here on my show of subject you, and I have discussed off air, and that is the shift in major league baseball, and how you feel it is particularly biased against one particular type of hitter. And I give you the floor on your thoughts on the shift and major league baseball, Scott pours. But thanks rich. This is we've now are able to get the front row of Dodger Stadium. Pure bright, bright happy about it. I might I might add that I ever seen. I've never seen. Anyone who is behind the mic eat as many hotdogs in a game. If you're, you know, Scott those dodger, I don't know. I don't know. I don't know how you lay off them Scotto be honest. I mean, well, it it's a brand cranky. I was so impressed that it distracted me from the game credit. No, I it's a numbers thing with the shift, and that is that because of first base you can literally put four men on the, you know, the right side of the infield. And you can say that a left hand hitter. Who particularly power hitters who make their living driving a baseball hitting it hard because the goal of baseball always is if you hit the ball hard. You should be rewarded, and and that's that's the hardest thing to do sport. We wanna hit a ninety five hour fastball hard. And so these these men who have power are used to and train to hip propounder. And that's what gets into the big leagues and gives them an elite value and they want home runs. They want power. And so they're taught to to basically pull the baseball and and develop a power swint. So when they get to the. Big leagues. You always hear the everyone say we'll go the other way do the things they need to do. Well, the answer is to go the other way that means that you're going to have more likely than not a lot of pitches that have to be on the outside part of the plate that it has to be in the middle part of the plate..

"The fan dan thanks for your call good morning good morning giant how are you sir two questions but i i think i i should say stadium on your first major league debut a saturday afternoon game and john when you major major league debut i believe so tom seaver day so it might have been remember the other question is saving the metrics it's getting a big portion of the game today in your opinion when scouts look at something what percentage of of a scouts overall reports go back the same metrics or what's in the guy's head and what's in his heart and how he plays the game and stuff and what's look that i think there's a difference now that say metric is taking over a lotta the last thing i think maybe you can comment also is that a baseball the young kids have these teams that go out and spend most of the summer playing on on a travel team and then in the wintertime the pitchers and hitters only came to you know like source enroll places and start throwing hitting john don't get john going on that dan just tell me i just like to know what's going on well the turn the ladder the first thing is baseball's not meant to be a year round sport and some of these people are missing the boat but they're buying into the greatness of the advertising and kind of the pr machine that's getting out in front trying to make you know greater greater players so seasonal there's a reason why season changes create sport changes and i think for youngsters missing out by not playing other sports so they get to their to their high school campaign and the first question was again he was he was talking about the about the just the influence insurance of this so we've got we've definitely gotten smarter we've got more information it's mostly more like a chess match now we know what everybody's gonna do basically when they're going to even blow their nose it seems like but that part's okay it's this if you don't have a blend and you don't have the opportunity to understand the human factor we have not unlock the.
